Veterans face growing obstacle with PTSD BY BRANT SAPPINGTON email@example.com
America's veterans face numerous challenges in returning to their normal lives and for a growing number of those veterans a major obstacle is Post Traumatic Stress Disorder. PTSD is brought on by any traumatic experience, explained Alcorn County Veterans Service
Officer Pat Ray. For veterans that trigger is often experiences in combat, but the disorder can also be caused by any significant traumatic experience such as an assault, an automobile accident, a rape or any other similar experience. The United States Veterans Administration has set aside June as PTSD Awareness Month
in an effort to reach out to veterans and the community with information on the disorder and the wide variety of resources available to help veterans cope with its devastating impact. Ray said she is seeing more and more veterans coming into her office who are suffering with the disorder, many who may not even realize it.
Fat Girl Returns Prentiss County native set to release third installment in best-selling series BY BRANT SAPPINGTON
“We are seeing a lot, a lot of PTSD,she said. When left untreated PTSD can lead to a wide variety of problems. Sufferers may experience flashbacks to the traumatic experience. They can suffer from intense anxiety, fear or depression. Many also struggle with severe bouts of anger. They often find themselves either
deliberately or subconsciously separating themselves from the people they are close to in their lives and many get into trouble attempting to self-medicate with drugs or alcohol. “It's actually debilitating and it not only affects the veteran, it affects the family,said Ray.

Modern Woodmen remain strong after 130 years of business
Everyone’s favorite big-mouthed Southern girl is back next month as Ace Jones travels the “Mad Fat Road to Happiness” in the latest novel from Prentiss County native Stephanie McAfee. “Down and Out in Bugtussle: The Mad Fat Road to Happiness”, the third installment in McAfee’s best-selling series hits the shelves on July 2 and the author will visit Tupelo on July 12 at 4 p.m. for a signing event and celebration at Reed’s Gum Tree Bookstore. The new adventure brings Ace back to her small Southern McAfee hometown of Bugtussle, Miss. as she seeks to put her life back together after breaking off her engagement with her fiancee and seeing her dream life in Florida go up in flames. Ace wants everything to be just like it was before, but it’s not to be as a pretty young newcomer has taken her former job at the local high school with no plans to give it up. Her efforts to find peace lead her to try to restore her grandmother’s gardens, but the project sparks a search for answers when she discovers a collection of old love letters in her grandmother’s gardening book hinting at an unknown secret life. McAfee said the book is filled with Jones’ trademark attitude and humor and she believes fans of the first two books will love the latest chapter in the saga. “I really think this is the best one yet,” she said. McAfee’s own story has been as big a whirlwind as that of her trademark character. A native of Prentiss County who graduated from Booneville High School

Modern Woodmen of America reports continued growth in 2012, according to recently compiled results for the year ending Dec. 31, 2012. “After 130 years, Modern Woodmen is still strong and secure,” said local Modern Woodsmen representative Jonathan Marsh. “The 2012 financial results show that the organization is flourishing, which is a benefit to Modern Woodmen members in Mississippi.” Highlights of the year included a 12 percent growth in life insurance. Also during 2012, the fraternal financial organization's assets exceeded $12 billion and membership increased to more than 773,000. Throughout the year Modern Woodmen’s fraternal expenditures contributed $28.9 million to support programs in member communities nationwide. One of the most important developments of the year was the 12 percent increase in new life insurance issued, for a total of $3.4 billion.
“We believe life insurance is the key to protecting members’ financial futures,” said Marsh. “Modern Woodmen’s Planning for Life system gives us the tools to help members plan for all stages of life and evaluate their own unique financial needs.” Life insurance in force — the total amount of life insurance owned by members to protect their families in case of premature death — increased to $35.5 billion. Over 2012 the organization’s assets increased by 7.6 percent, reaching nearly $12.4 billion. Assets are primarily invested in high-quality, low-risk corporate and government bonds. “Modern Woodmen has always been conservative in its investment practices,” Marsh pointed out. “This serves the organization well and protects members in all economic climates.” The fraternal expenditures supporting Modern Woodmen’s family-oriented member benefits and programs grew to $28.9 million in 2012.

KHS graduate leaves mark with mural BY BOBBY J. SMITH email@example.com
Kara Reynolds graduated from the Alcorn County School District and is moving on to college in the fall — but nobody can say she didn’t leave a mark. Last week the Kossuth grad completed an expansive mural at the Alcorn Career and Technology Center. Located in the Information Technology classroom, the mural depicts the familiar features of a Microsoft
Windows desktop surrounded by computers, printers, a swirling ribbon of binary code and other representations of technology. Reynolds began the project in early May. She worked almost every day of the week during the hours the Career and Technology Center is open. “It took me a little bit to figure out what I wanted to paint,” said Reynolds. “Then it came to me, and I knew I wanted to incorporate the things we
do in class.” Using acrylic paints, Reynolds drew the outline for the mural in freehand and painted Please see MURAL | 3A Submitted photo

a Mad Fat Girl”. Originally published as an electronic book on Amazon.com and other sites, the novel quickly caught the attention of major publishers and led to a multi-book deal with New York-based Penguin Group and a quick rise to the top of the charts for the smalltown Southern girl. Her next book in the series, “Happily Ever Madder”, was released last year and found similar success
as readers clamored for more of her trademark humor and sharp observations. At the center of it all has been her heroine, Graciella “Ace” Jones, a bigmouthed, trouble-making Southern belle whose larger than life persona and willingness to say whatever is on her mind regardless of the consequences has resonated with readers across the country. McAfee said she created Jones with the goal of mak-
ing a character everyone could connect with. She faces the same challenges and beneath the outsized personality deals with the same struggles everyone does. “I really really wanted her to be a character that people could relate to,” she said. Jones also gives voice to many of the thoughts most people keep buried inside. “Everybody has a little bit of Ace Jones in their personality. She’s kind of a
War II. Many years ago veterans suffering from what is now known as PTSD were simply said to have “shell shock” and there weren't a lot of options to help them deal with their experiences. That's all changed now, said Ray. The Veterans Administration offers free help to veterans dealing with PTSD including access to medical professionals such as doctors, psychologists and psychiatrists in both one-on-one and
group settings, support groups that allow veterans to share their experiences with others who have gone through the same trauma, and much more. There can also be financial benefits available to veterans whose PTSD is determined to be directly related to their military service. The first step in getting help is to reach out for it, said Ray. The Veterans Service Office staff is available to help veterans and their families navigate the VA system and connect them with the help they need and all the benefits they're entitled to. “We'll sit down with them, talk with them and encourage them,said Ray. The staff will help with all aspects of the process including filling out paperwork, making appointments and helping arrange transportation if necessary. They are there full-time to help veterans get access to all the benefits they've earned by serving their country. Ray emphasized that all consultations with her office are strictly confiden-
release,” said the author. McAfee said the past two years since the release of the first novel have been a whirlwind and she’s just now been able to take some time off and start thinking about the next chapter in her life. “I feel like I’ve been running to catch up,” she said. That next chapter will include the Mad Fat Girl, at least for one more book. “There’s at least one more. There may be more. Her story’s just not done
yet,” she said. She’s also already planning future projects including a humorous look at relationships between men and women and another novel or series of novels with a new cast of characters. She also stays busy connecting with readers on Facebook at www.facebook.com/booksbystephanie and on her blog which can be found through her Facebook page. McAfee said she gets
back to the area regularly to visit family and friends and she’s excited about the upcoming event at Reeds. She said she’s extremely grateful for the strong support she’s been given from her hometown friends and understands she has the opportunity to live the life she does because of that support. “Thank you. Thank you for the support and for the encouragement. I couldn’t be where I am without it,” she said.

Today in History Today is Sunday, June 23, the 174th day of 2013. There are 191 days left in the year.
Today’s Highlight in History: On June 23, 1888, abolitionist Frederick Douglass received one vote from the Kentucky delegation at the Republican convention in Chicago, effectively making him the first black candidate to have his name placed in nomination for U.S. president. (The nomination went to Benjamin Harrison.)
On this date: In 1757, forces of the East India Company led by Robert Clive won the Battle of Plassey, which effectively marked the beginning of British colonial rule in India. In 1812, Britain, unaware that America had declared war against it five days earlier, rescinded its policy on neutral shipping, a major issue of contention between the two countries. In 1860, a congressional resolution authorized creation of the United States Government Printing Office, which opened the following year. In 1931, aviators Wiley Post and Harold Gatty took off from New York on a round-the-world flight that lasted eight days and 15 hours. In 1938, the Civil Aeronautics Authority was established. In 1947, the Senate joined the House in overriding President Harry S. Truman’s veto of the TaftHartley Act, designed to limit the power of organized labor. In 1956, Gamal Abdel Nasser was elected president of Egypt. In 1967, President Lyndon B. Johnson and Soviet Premier Alexei Kosygin held the first of two meetings at Glassboro State College in New Jersey. In 1969, Warren E. Burger was sworn in as chief justice of the United States by the man he was succeeding, Earl Warren. In 1972, President Richard Nixon and White House chief of staff H.R. Haldeman discussed a plan to use the CIA to obstruct the FBI’s Watergate investigation. (Revelation of the tape recording of this conversation sparked Nixon’s resignation.) President Nixon signed into law Title IX, which barred discrimination on the basis of sex for “any education program or activity receiving federal financial assistance.” In 1988, James E. Hansen, a climatologist at the Goddard Institute for Space Studies, told a Senate panel that global warming of the earth caused by the “greenhouse effect” was a reality. In 1993, in a case that drew widespread attention, Lorena Bobbitt of Prince William County, Va., sexually mutilated her husband, John, after he’d allegedly raped her. (John Bobbitt was later acquitted of marital sexual assault; Lorena Bobbitt was later acquitted of malicious wounding by reason of insanity.) Canada’s Senate ratified the North American Free Trade Agreement.

Federal judge criticizes tort caps Associated Press
JACKSON — A federal judge has upheld Mississippi's cap of $500,000 on noneconomic damages in medical malpractice cases. The ruling came in a wrongful death lawsuit filed by the family of a woman and her unborn baby who died after being denied potential lifesaving treatment at a hospital on the Choctaw Reservation in Neshoba County. U.S. District Judge Carlton Reeves applied the caps in the case, finding that his hands were tied and the Mississippi Supreme Court would likely find the caps constitutional. But Reeves found fault with the caps and what he perceived as their unfairness. “All grief is not equal. All pain cannot be reduced to a one-size-fitsall sum. In Mississippi, though, one's suffering at the hands of a health care provider is worth no more than half a million dollars, no matter how egregious, and no matter if your suffering leads to your death, your unborn child's death, and leaves your children orphans. This is offensive,” Reeves wrote on June 13 in upholding the limits. The U.S. attorney's office in Jackson did not respond to a request for comment nor did the Mississippi attorney general's office. Michael T. Jaques, an attorney for plaintiff Kathy Clemons, said an appeal to the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals is being considered. “This is a unique case in that it was the judge — not a jury — that awarded the damages against the United States in an amount that would compensate the victims for their loss,” Jaques said. Clemons sued the U.S. government in 2010 after the death of her daughter, Tiara Clemons, and Clemons' unborn grandchild. Clemons argued that her daughter was denied potential lifesaving care by doctors at the emergency room of the Choctaw Health Center on the reservation of the Mississippi Band of Choctaw Indians in Neshoba County. The
Choctaw Health Center operated under rules of the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services and the Indian Health Service. Tiara Clemons eventually was transferred to a Jackson hospital where she and the unborn child died. The government admitted, in court documents, that the care provided at the health center “did not comply with, and fell below, the standard of care” that should have been provided. The government said the breaches of the standard of care were the proximate cause of the deaths of Tiara Clemons and her child. With that admission, the case turned to the issue of economic and non-economic damages. Punitive damages are disallowed in the federal courts. In an Oct. 30, 2012, ruling, Reeves awarded $5.45 million in noneconomic damages and $1.8 million in economic damages. However, before making the award final, Reeves asked both sides to address the question of Mississippi's tort limits. Mississippi's $1 million cap on noneconomic damages applies to what a jury can award someone for such things as pain and suffering. The limits on damages were adopted by Mississippi lawmakers after years of contentious wrangling. Noneconomic damages under Mississippi law do not include punitive damages. There is no cap on damages for economic losses, such as how much the person could have expected to earn in his or her lifetime or for such things as continuing medical expenses. Reeves allowed Mississippi Attorney General Jim Hood to intervene in the case. In court documents, the attorney general's office argued that Mississippi's cap on noneconomic damages had never been found unconstitutional and state courts elsewhere have upheld such limits on the amount of noneconomic damages recoverable in medical malpractice cases.

Highway 72 traffic was disrupted Saturday afternoon after a two-vehicle crash at the Parkway Street intersection. The crash happened in the westbound lane shortly before 3 p.m., when a 1999 Mercury Mountaineer — driven by 25-year-old Glen resident Kevin Lambert — drove into the rear of a Chevrolet Trailblazer — driven by Frances Bennett, 22, of Corinth — while Bennett was stopped for the traffic light. EMS responded to the scene, but the drivers were not seriously injured and both refused treatment.

Letter to the Editor
No tax increase requested by Alcorn School District To the editor On behalf of the Alcorn School District, I would like to thank the citizens of Alcorn County for your personal and your financial support. The Alcorn School District strives to be a good steward of the citizens’ tax dollars. The Alcorn School District Board of Education, administration, faculty, staff, and I are diligently planning to utilize each dollar that is allocated to meet the demands of the state and federal government in educating every child. The difficult economic times that our state and community are facing makes this task extremely important. Our teachers, staff, and administration are dedicated and establish goals that are in the best interest of the children of the Alcorn School District. We are blessed to have caring employees that are willing to go the extra mile daily to insure that these goals are attained for every child to meet their true potential and reap the rewards of academic success. I would like to clarify the advertisement for the Alcorn School District tax effort that was published in the Daily Corinthian on June 13 and June 20, 2013. Mississippi Code of 1972 Section 37-57-104 specifies the requirement for the advertisement. Please, note that the county government sets the millage rate based on the school district’s dollar request. The Alcorn School District is not requesting a dollar amount increase. The actual millage rates will not be known until September of this year when the county sets the rate based on the tax collections received. The Alcorn School District is committed to being a positive influence in promoting economic improvement for our county. The Alcorn School District Board of Education and I would like to invite all of you to the Alcorn School District Budget Hearing on Monday, June 24 at 5 p.m. in the Alcorn School District Board Room. Thank you once again for your continued support and the opportunity to serve the children of the Alcorn School District. Gina Rogers Smith Alcorn School District Superintendent of Education
Prayer for today Father, we thank You for Jesus who keeps a firm grip on us allowing no enemy to snatch us out of His hand. Amen.

The Palin Doctrine nails it on Syria On U.S. military intervention in Syria's civil war, where “both sides are slaughtering each other as they scream over an arbitrary red line 'Allahu akbar' ... I say let Allah sort it out.” So said Sarah Palin to the Faith and Freedom Coalition conference. And, as is not infrequently the case, she nailed it. Hours later, Gideon Rachman of the Financial Times, at length, echoed Palin: “Those who are urging the US to get more deeply involved in the Syrian conflict now are living in the past.” Four fundamental changes make it “no longer realistic, or even desirable, for the US to dominate” the Middle East as we did from the Suez crisis of 1956 through the Iraq invasion of 2003. The four changes: the failures of the Afghanistan and Iraq wars, the Great Recession, the Arab Spring and emerging U.S. energy independence. Indeed, with $2 trillion sunk, 7,000 U.S. troops dead, 40,000 wounded, hundreds of thousands of Iraqis and Afghans dead, and millions of refugees, what do we have to show for this vast human and material waste? Can a country with an economy limping along, one that has run four consecutive deficits in excess of $1 trillion, afford another imperial adventure? On the Shiite side of the Syrian civil war are Ayatollah Ali Khamenei, Russian President Vladimir Putin, Hezbollah and
Syrian President Bashar Assad. On the Sunni side are the al-Qaidaaffiliated Jabal-Nusra, Pat hat Sunni jihadists Buchanan from across Middle Columnist the East, the Muslim Brotherhood, Hamas, Qatar and Saudi Arabia. Is victory for either side worth yet another U.S. war? Ought we not stand back and ask: What vital interest is imperiled here? And even if Americans favor one side or the other, how lasting an impact could any U.S. intervention have? The region is in turmoil. Since the Tunisian uprising that dethroned an autocratic ally, dictators have fallen in Egypt and Libya. There have been a Shiite revolt in Bahrain, a civil war in Yemen and a civilsectarian war in Syria that has cost 90,000 lives. Iraq is disintegrating. Al-Qaida is in Pakistan, Iraq, Yemen, Somalia, the Maghreb region and Mali. Now the muezzin's call to religious war is heard. “How could 100 million Shiites defeat 1.7 billion (Sunnis)?” roared powerful Saudi cleric Yusuf al-Qaradawi, calling for a Sunni-Shiite war. AlQaradawi denounces Assad's Alawite sect as “more infidel than Christians and Jews” and calls Hezbollah “the party of the devil.” “Everyone who has the abil-
ity and has training to kill ... is required to go” to Syria, said alQaradawi. In Afghanistan, the Taliban have made a comeback, and the United States is negotiating with the same crowd we sent an army to oust in 2001. And the press reports we will be leaving behind $7 billion in U.S. military vehicles and equipment when we depart. Recep Tayyip Erdogan, the most successful Turkish leader since Kemal Ataturk, appears to have lost his mandate, with hundreds of thousands pouring into streets and squares both to denounce and to defend him. The United States, says Rachman, “has recognised that, ultimately, the people of the Middle East are going to have to shape their own destinies. Many of the forces at work in the region -- such as Islamism and Sunni-Shia sectarianism -- are alarming to the West but they cannot be forever channelled or suppressed.” Did those clamoring today for intervention in Syria learn nothing from Ronald Reagan's intervention in an earlier Arab civil war, the one in Lebanon? Result: 241 dead Marines, the U.S. Embassy in Beirut bombed and hostages taken. Reagan left office believing his decision to put Marines in Lebanon was his greatest mistake. And to retrieve those hostages, he acceded to a transfer of weapons to Iran, an action that almost broke his presidency. Yet it is not only in the
Middle East that we are “living in the past,” in a world long gone. As Ted Galen Carpenter writes in Chronicles, under NATO we are committed to go to war with Russia on behalf of 27 nations. If Russia collides with Estonia or Latvia over the treatment of their Russian minorities, we fight Russia. For whose benefit is this commitment? Today Japan spends 1 percent of its gross domestic product on defense. Yet the USA is committed to go to war to defend not only the home islands but the Senkaku islets and rocks in the East China Sea that China also claims. Are the Senkakus really worth a war with China? NATO was established to defend Europe. Yet Europe spends less on its own defense than we do. Sixty years after the Korean War, we remain committed to defend South Korea against North Korea. Yet South Korea has an economy 40 times as large as North Korea's. Former Rep. Ron Paul asks: Why, when U.S. debt is larger than our GDP and we are running mammoth annual deficits, are we borrowing money abroad to give away in foreign aid? Good question. As for those ethnic, sectarian and civil wars raging across the Middle East, let Allah sort it out. (Daily Corinthian columnist Patrick J. Buchanan is the author of “Suicide of a Superpower: Will America Survive to 2025?”)
Nothing to talk about with the Taliban After 12 years of fighting, the Taliban in Afghanistan have announced they are ready to talk peace with the United States. The Taliban opened a political office in Qatar. The talks will take place there, but without the Afghan government, which is refusing to take part in the “peace” talks. President Obama says there will be “a lot of bumps in the road” during the talks. More like sinkholes. The history of talks with Middle East terrorist groups, apparently, has taught us little. It appears such groups use talks like these to mostly re-arm and/or advance their cause until they can either get back to the killing field or enforce their political and religious will on the masses. What is there to talk about with the Taliban? How can any “infidel” Western diplomat believe anything they say about “peace,” since their definition of the word is likely much different than ours? The Koran teaches that it’s permitted to lie to infidels in order to achieve Islamic goals. It’s called “Altaqiyya.” “Taqiyya (deception) is of fundamental importance in

Islam,” writes Raymond Ibrahim for the Middle East Forum. “Practically every Islamic Cal sect agrees to Thomas it and practices it. We can go Columnist so far as to say that the practice of taqiyya is mainstream in Islam, and that those few sects not practicing it diverge from the mainstream. ... Taqiyya is very prevalent in Islamic politics, especially in the modern era.” (http://www.meforum. org/2095/islams-doctrinesof-deception.) Before 9/11, I attended an event in New York hosted by some female celebrities who wished to draw attention to the plight of Afghan women. I heard stories from female doctors and teachers about how the Taliban had made women’s lives miserable. They were not permitted to leave the house, unless accompanied by a male relative. A male relative had to deposit their bus fare in the coin box. Women were banned from working in
public places. Women had to wear a burqa if they went outside and the windows in their homes had to be covered so no one could see inside. Girls and women were not allowed to attend publicly funded schools. That is only a partial list of restrictions. According to various reports, there are others: Women are denied access to basic health care, but when they do get it, they cannot be treated by male doctors (this restriction extends to children); no exposed ankles, no laughing loudly or wearing shoes that make noise when they walk, no white socks, no makeup or nail polish. Women cannot use public taxis without being accompanied by male relatives and they must use special female-only buses whose windows are draped with curtains so no one on the street can see the passengers. Failing to adhere to these rules leads to public beatings, whippings, verbal abuse and even death. There’s more, but I don’t have the space. According to RAWA, the Revolutionary Association of the Women of Afghanistan, the Taliban has

also issued a general ban -- for both men and women -- on listening to music, watching movies, television and videos or celebrating the traditional new year. If you were given a non-Islamic name, you have to change it to an Islamic one. Certain games are banned, including kite flying. “NonMuslim minorities must wear a badge or stitch a yellow cloth onto their clothing to differentiate them from the majority Muslim population,” writes RAWA. Now what does that remind you of? If the Taliban view things like exposed ankles and white socks as horrors offensive to their god, how do so-called infidels, whom they consider worthy of death, negotiate with them? If such twisted ideas are accepted as doctrine, what could the Taliban possibly give up in negotiations ... and in exchange for what? Furthermore, if we reach an agreement with them, how will we know they’re even telling the truth? (Readers may e-mail Daily Corinthian columnist Cal Thomas at email@example.com.)

Health law causing shortage of doctors COLUMBUS, Ohio â€” Getting face time with the family doctor could soon become even harder. A shortage of primary care physicians in some parts of the country is expected to worsen as millions of newly insured Americans gain coverage under the federal health care law next year. Doctors could face a backlog, and patients could find it difficult to get quick appointments. Attempts to address the provider gap have taken on increased urgency ahead of the lawâ€™s full implementation Jan. 1, but many of the potential solutions face a backlash from influential groups or will take years to bear fruit. Lobbying groups representing doctors have questioned the safety of some of the proposed changes, argued they would encourage less collaboration among health professionals and suggested they could create a two-tiered health system offering unequal treatment. Bills seeking to expand the scope of practice of dentists, dental therapists, optometrists, psychologists, nurse practitioners and others have been killed or watered down in numerous states. Other states have proposed expanding student loan reimbursements, but money for doing so is tight. Â
Wing walker, pilot killed at air show CINCINNATI â€” A plane carrying a wing walker crashed at an air show and exploded into flames Saturday, killing the pilot and stunt walker instantly, authorities said. The crash of the 450 HP Stearman happened at around 12:45 p.m. at the Vectren Air Show at Dayton International Airport. No spectators were hurt. A video posted on WHIO-TV shows the plane turn upside-down as the performer sits on top of the wing. The plane then tilts and crashes to the ground, erupting into flames as spectators screamed. Ian Hoyt, an aviation photographer and licensed pilot from Findlay, was at the show with his girlfriend. He told The Associated Press he was taking photos as the plane passed by and had just raised his camera to take another shot. â€œThen I realized they were too low and too slow. And before I knew it, they hit the ground,â€?
he said. Â
Obama administration warns Hong Kong WASHINGTON â€” The Obama administration on Saturday sharply warned Hong Kong against slowwalking the extradition of Edward Snowden, reflecting concerns over a prolonged legal battle before the government contractor ever appears in a U.S. courtroom to answer espionage charges for revealing two highly classified surveillance programs. A formal extradition request to bring Snowden to the United States from Hong Kong could drag through appeal courts for years and would pit Beijing against Washington at a time China tries to deflect U.S. accusations that it carries out extensive surveillance on American government and commercial operations. The U.S. has contacted authorities in Hong Kong to seek Snowdenâ€™s extradition, the National Security Council said Saturday in a statement. The NSC advises the president on national security. â€œHong Kong has been a historically good partner of the United States in law enforcement matters, and we expect them to comply with the treaty in this case,â€? White House national security adviser Tom Donilon said in an interview with CBS News. He said the U.S. presented Hong Kong with a â€œgood case for extradition.â€? However, a senior administration official issued a pointed warning that if Hong Kong doesnâ€™t act soon, â€œit will complicate our bilateral relations and raise questions about Hong Kongâ€™s commitment to the rule of law.â€? The official was not authorized to discuss the matter by name and insisted on anonymity. Â
Medtronic insulin pump passes key test Doctors are reporting a major step toward an â€œartificial pancreas,â€? a de-
vice that would constantly monitor blood sugar in people with diabetes and automatically supply insulin as needed. A key component of such a system â€” an insulin pump programmed to shut down if bloodsugar dips too low while people are sleeping â€” worked as intended in a three-month study of 247 patients. This â€œsmart pump,â€? made by Minneapolisbased Medtronic Inc., is already sold in Europe, and the U.S. Food and Drug Administration is reviewing it now. Whether it also can be programmed to mimic a real pancreas and constantly adjust insulin based on continuous readings from a blood-sugar monitor requires more testing, but doctors say the new study suggests thatâ€™s a realistic goal. â€œThis is the first step in the development of the artificial pancreas,â€? said Dr. Richard Bergenstal, diabetes chief at Park Nicollet, a large clinic in St. Louis Park, Minn. â€œBefore we said itâ€™s a dream. We have the first part of it now and I really think it will be developed.â€? He led the companysponsored study and gave results Saturday at an American Diabetes Association conference in Chicago. They also were published online by the New England Journal of Medicine. Â
Supermoon shines brightly this weekend LOS ANGELES â€” A â€œsupermoonâ€? rises this weekend. The biggest and brightest full moon of the year graces the sky early Sunday as our celestial neighbor swings closer to Earth than usual. While the moon will appear 14 percent larger than normal, sky watchers wonâ€™t be able to notice the difference with the naked eye. Still, astronomers say itâ€™s worth looking up and appreciating the cosmos.
Parchman visitation resumes after stabbing JACKSON â€” Mississippi corrections officials say visitation is resuming for most units of the state penitentiary at Parchman. A June 11 stabbing death and a fight the following day in which 11 prisoners and five staffers were injured led officials to place the prison on lockdown. The Department of Corrections said Friday evening that visitation has resumed for minimum- and mediumsecurity prisoners and death row inmates. Visitations remain suspended in parts of one prison unit. The number of inmates affected was not released. Â

Cochran and Wicker, both R-Miss., say the sale of these aircraft has the potential to benefit the United Statesâ€™ relationship with an important ally and to enhance the reputation of Mississippiâ€™s manufacturing capabilities. The Lakota is manufacturer at the American Eurocopter plant at Golden Triangle Regional Airport near Columbus. It is primarily used by the Army for noncombat missions including emergency response, border security, and light transport. Â

JACKSON â€” The Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality has $1 million in grants available for local governments to create, improve or expand cooperative recycling programs. MDEQ says grants of up to $400,000 will be available to fund regional recycling projects by municipalities, counties, solid waste management authorities, local government recycling cooperatives, local government solid waste districts, or other joint local government organizations for the collection, processing and marketing of recyclables.

Heroin, cash seized in bust LAUREL â€” Laurel police chief Tyrone Stewart says three people have been arrested in a drug bust that also resulted in the confiscation of a large amount of heroin and several thousand dollars in cash. Stewart told WDAM that two suspects were caught at the scene of an alleged Friday afternoon drug deal in south Laurel. Another suspect was arrested a short time later after a high speed chase. No injuries were reported. The suspects were awaiting a weekend court appearance. Â

side of the dam,â€? said Richard Hathorn, who has managed the lake park since 2008. Hathorn said the back side of the old dam was too steep, which prevented park workers from cutting the trees and other plant growth that had sprung up over the years. Work to improve the dam led to an upgrade of the lake itself, and the surrounding camp ground, by the Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries and Parks,. â€œThe department spent more than $1 million over a three-year period on upgrades,â€? said Hathorn. A new office with menâ€™s and womenâ€™s restrooms was built, the boat ramp was rebuilt, courtesy piers were constructed, roads were repaved and the campground was improved, with 13 new camping pads with water and power. Once the dam was built and the water level was raised back to normal, the lake was restocked with bass, crappie, bluegill and catfish. Campers and fishermen are back now. And, The Hattiesburg American reports, they appear pleased. â€œItâ€™s better now,â€? said Jeanette Tyler of Monticello, who was enjoying an afternoon of fishing last week. â€œTheyâ€™ve restocked it better, and itâ€™s a better fishing environment.â€? â€œIâ€™ve been fishing in this lake a long time, and I never caught much of anything,â€? said Adell Brown, of rural Jeff Davis County, who was fishing off the rocks on the lake side of the dam. â€œBut Iâ€™ve caught a few bream out here.â€? Most of the better fishing, though, is close to the camping and dock areas, where a group of partially submerged willow trees and bushes took root during the period when the lake was empty.

State Briefs City runs out of money to mow vacant lots GREENVILLE — Greenville has run out of money to pay to mow the more than 600 vacant properties it owns. Carlon Williams, the city’s planning and zoning director, tells the Delta Democrat Times that of the $90,000 allocated for mowing this year only $79 remained this week. Williams said she has asked the city’s finance committee for more money. The fiscal year ends Sept. 30. Councilman Tommy Benson, who is on the finance committee, says the city is working on finding ways to fund mowing. While the city can’t give residents permission to go onto private property, Williams said residents can help by cleaning up vacant properties. “We are urging them as a community. They can make a decision to go and clean up proper-
ties in their community,” she said. “There is nothing else we can do.” Earlier this year when 94 parcels of tax-forfeited properties were put up for auction, Mayor John Cox said the city would reap financial benefits because those lots would be back on the tax rolls. He estimated the city would save about $4,500, which would go toward the upkeep of the remaining 500 or so vacant properties in the city. Several council members have raised concerns about the planning departments finances after having received numerous phone calls from constituents about uncut lawns.
Man killed outside lounge Friday VICKSBURG — Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace says he’s ready to start the legal effort to shut down a bar where a man was gunned down Friday. The man killed was
identified as 27-yearold Willie Swartz of the Vicksburg area. Three people have been taken into custody in connection with the shooting, which happened in the gravel parking lot in front of a lounge on Warren County’s Lee Road. Pace told The Vicksburg Post he plans to meet with the district attorney Monday in hopes of getting a court order to close the Starlight Lounge. Pace said deputies have been called to the bar 21 times since January 2012 for disturbances that include shots fired and fights. A pattern must be established to make a case for closing the business, 9th Circuit District Attorney Ricky Smith said . “It appears that club tends to come up in numerous reports,” he said. “We’re pulling together a file to see if we have sufficient facts, but it would appear we are going to be going forward with that.”

Rivers receding in Calgary; 3 dead in floods Associated Press
CALGARY, Alberta — The two rivers that converge on the western Canadian city of Calgary are receding Saturday after floods devastated much of southern Alberta province, causing at least three deaths and forcing thousands to evacuate. The flooding forced authorities to evacuate Calgary’s entire downtown and hit some of the city’s iconic structures hard. The Saddledome, home to the National Hockey League’s Calgary Flames, was flooded up to the 10th row, leaving the dressing rooms submerged. Flames’ president and CEO Ken King said Saturday that the Saddledome is a “real mess,” with water still up to row 8 of the lower bowl. He said the flooding has caused a total loss on the event level with all mechanical equipment submerged under 15 feet (4.5 meters) of water. “If you were a hockey player walking out of the tunnel to the ice, you’d be underwater yourself,” he said during a press conference. Water lapped at the roof of the chuckwagon barns at the grounds of the Calgary Stampede, which is scheduled to start in two weeks. Calgary Mayor Naheed Nenshi has said the city will do everything it can to make sure that the world-renowned party goes ahead. Bruce Burrell, director of the city’s emergency
management agency, said Saturday they are seeing improvements in the rivers. Dan Limacher, director of water services for the city, said the Elbow river is expected to recede by about 60 percent over the next two days, while the larger Bow river will recede by about 25 percent. The improving conditions Saturday morning prompted Calgary’s mayor to tweet: “It’s morning in Calgary! Sunny, water levels are down, and our spirit remains strong. We’re not out of this, but maybe have turned corner.” However, Nenshi said later Saturday that while the city may have turned a corner, there is still a state of emergency in effect. “Flows on Elbow and Bow (rivers) are dropping slowly. We do believe the peak has passed on the Elbow. However, water levels are still four times higher than 2005 flood levels,” he said during a press conference. Overflowing rivers on Thursday and Friday washed out roads and bridges, soaked homes and turned streets into dirt-brown waterways around southern Alberta. High River, southwest of Calgary, was one of the hardest-hit areas and remained under a mandatory evacuation order. Police said they have recovered three bodies in the town. It is estimated that half the people in the town of
13,000 experienced flooding in their homes. Police cut off access to most of the town and helicopters circled overhead. Abandoned cars lay submerged in water, while backhoes worked in vain to push water back from houses. Police asked residents who were forced to leave the High River area to register at an evacuation shelter. By Saturday morning, 485 evacuees had registered at the shelter in Nanton, south of Calgary, and 278 people were on the inquiry list. The Royal Canadian Mounted Police said Saturday that during rescue and evacuation efforts on Friday in the High River area, approximately 800 people were evacuated by helicopter along with 100-200 people rescued by various water craft. Ed Mailhot, a volunteer in High River, has been working to build a database of registered evacuees and those who are looking for them. Cellphone service was not restored until late Friday. “There are a lot of loved ones out there that people can’t find, or they don’t know where they are,” he said. “It’s still chaos.” Alberta Premier Alison Redford has warned that communities downstream of Calgary have not yet felt the full force of the floodwaters. Medicine Hat, downstream from Calgary, was under a mandatory evacuation order affecting 10,000 residents.
As the sun rose in Calgary on Saturday morning it wasn’t raining. Burrell said some of the 75,000 flood evacuees from more than 24 neighborhoods will be allowed back into their homes. He said the goal is to allow people from portions of six communities back into their homes on Saturday. Residents of a neighborhood in one of those communities — the high ground portion of Discovery Ridge —have already been allowed back. About 1,500 people in Calgary went to emergency shelters during the flooding, while the rest of those evacuated found shelter with family or friends, Nenshi said. Schools and courts were closed Friday. Transit service in the city’s core was shut down. Dale McMaster, executive vice president of ENMAX, Calgary’s power company, said Saturday that at least 30,000 customers remain without power. Calgary’s mayor said the downtown area remained off limits and employers will have to make arrangements to have staff work remotely until at least the middle of the week. “It is extremely unlikely that people will be able to return to those buildings before the middle of next week,” Nenshi said. Prime Minister Stephen Harper, a Calgary resident, said he never imagined there would be
a flood of this magnitude in this part of Canada. “This is incredible. I’ve seen a little bit of flooding in Calgary before. I don’t think any of us have seen anything like this before. The magnitude is just extraordinary,” he said. “We’re all very concerned that if gets much more than this it could have real impact on infrastructure and other services longer term, so we’re hoping things will subside a bit.” The Conservative Party said Saturday that it has postponed its federal policy convention which was scheduled to begin Thursday at the Telus Convention Centre in downtown Calgary because of the floods. “There are neighborhoods under water, so there is a lot of work we have to do to rebuild,” said Michelle Rempel, a member of Parliament for Calgary Center. “Postponing the convention is the right thing to do for the people of Calgary.” Calgary, a city of more than a million people that hosted the 1988 Winter Olympics, is the center of Canada’s oil industry. About 350,000 people work in downtown Calgary on a typical day. However, officials said very few people had to be moved out, since many heeded warnings and did not go to work Friday. A spokesman for Canada’s defense minister said 1,300 soldiers from a base in Edmonton were being deployed to the flood zone.
The Mounties added that approximately 200 additional Royal Canadian Mounted Police personnel were deployed Saturday from other parts of Alberta to assist with evacuation, rescue, traffic safety and security operations, It had been a rainy week throughout much of Alberta, but on Thursday the Bow River Basin was battered with up to four inches (10 centimeters) of rain. Environment Canada’s forecast called for more rain in the area, but in much smaller amounts. Calgary was not alone in its weather-related woes. Efforts were under way Saturday to move more than 2,000 people from their homes in a floodprone part of northeastern Saskatchewan because of rising water levels. Saskatchewan’s deputy emergency management commissioner Colin King said the water is going to rise to an unprecedented level in the Cumberland House area. The communities are downstream of where the North and South Saskatchewan Rivers meet and those rivers are swollen as floodwaters from Alberta head east. The Saskatchewan Water Security Agency said inflows on the South Saskatchewan River into Lake Diefenbaker are expected to be the highest ever recorded. The South Saskatchewan River is expected to rise six feet.
Zimmerman judge: No testimony on 911 call screams Associated Press
SANFORD, Fla. — The judge in the murder trial of George Zimmerman said Saturday that prosecution audio experts who point to Trayvon Martin as screaming on a 911 call moments before he was killed won’t be allowed to testify at trial. The screams are crucial pieces of evidence because they could determine who the aggressor was in the confrontation before Zimmerman fatally shot the unarmed teenager. Martin’s family contends it was the teen screaming, while Zimmerman’s father has said it was his son. Judge Debra Nelson ruled that the methods used by the experts aren’t reliable. But her ruling doesn’t prevent the 911 calls from being played at trial. She reached the decision after hearing arguments that stretched over several days this month on whether to allow testimony from two prosecution experts. One expert ruled out Zimmerman as the screamer and another said it was Martin. Defense experts argued there was not enough audio to determine who the screams are coming from. Zimmerman’s attorneys also argued that the state experts’ analysis is flawed. Opening statements are set for Monday in the second-degree murder trial for the former neighborhood watch volunteer who says he fired on the black teenager in selfdefense last year. Zimmerman is pleading not guilty. The elimination of the audio experts will likely shorten the trial by a week. Before the ruling, attorneys had predicted the trial could last two to four weeks after opening statements. A spokeswoman for prosecutors didn’t immediately return an email Saturday. Audio experts from both sides testified at different times during the hearing, which stretched over three weeks. Voice experts were hired by lawyers and news orga-
nizations to analyze the calls, which were made during the confrontation between the two. The experts arrived at mixed conclusions. In deciding whether to admit the voice-recognition technology used by prosecution audio experts Tom Owen and Alan Reich, Nelson had to determine whether it
is too novel or whether it has been accepted by the scientific community atlarge. “There is no evidence to establish that their scientific techniques have been tested and found reliable,” the judge said in her ruling. Owen was hired by the Orlando Sentinel last year to compare a

voice sample of Zimmerman with screams for help captured on 911 calls made by neighbors. He said Zimmerman’s voice doesn’t match the
screams. He only compared Zimmerman’s voice to the 911 calls because he didn’t have a voice sample for Martin at the time.
“The screams don’t match at all,” Owen testified during the hearing. “That’s what tells me the screams aren’t George Zimmerman.”

DEL REY, Calif. â€” Farmer David Mas Masumoto knows his small peach orchard can't compete with the giant agribusinesses that dominate the nation's produce aisles. So as he walks through his central California grove at harvest time, showing his two workers which trees to pick, his wife and daughter, Marcy and Nikiko, work a different side of the operation, preparing a recipe from the family's newly published cookbook. They saute fresh peach slices in butter and brandy, then whip heavy cream and pour wholegrain batter into a waffle iron, creating one of the dozens of dishes from â€œThe Perfect Peach.â€? â€œThe cookbook,â€? says Nikiko Masumoto, 27, who co-authored the book with her parents, â€œis a natural extension of what we've been trying to do for years on the farm: to use creative ways to share our story and galvanize people about our fruit.â€? Like the Masumotos, small-scale growers throughout the U.S. are looking for creative ways to set themselves apart as they find that survival requires more than just selling crops. Experts say these practices are shifting notions of how small farms operate. Since the little guys can't beat corporate giants on price or production, they're cashing in on something the big shots can't provide: an intimate, personal experience. Across the nation, family businesses are capitalizing on small farm culture by selling products such as jam, olive oil and lemonade. They're also writing books, hosting dinners and renting rooms. The ventures allow the public to share the experience and flavor of small farm life. â€œThe opportunities for farmers are significant today, because many of us as eaters want to make the connection to the food system, the land and the farmer,â€? says Craig McNamara, founder and president of the Center for Land-Based Learning in Winters, Calif., which trains and mentors new farmers. In industry terms, it's called value-added agriculture, and statistics show the practice is growing. According to the most recent data available, farm operators generated $10 billion in 2007 from farm-related activities other than crop or livestock wholesale, an increase of nearly 80 percent from 2002. Value-added agriculture projects are â€œa way to have a product to sell year-round, even during winter months,â€? says Shermain Hardesty, leader of the small farm program at the University of California, Davis. â€œIt reinforces farmers' connection to consumers,â€? says Hardesty, who teaches a popular class on the specialty food business. â€œAnd by getting involved in marketing their identities, they can expand their profitability.â€? The examples abound. Just south of Hood River, Ore., Draper Girls' Country Farm lets people pick their own fruit or rent a room, in addition to selling jams and jellies and cinnamon-sugar dried apples. The 40-acre farm also makes fresh nonpasteurized apple cider in its own mill. The Free Spirit Farm in Winters, Calif., grows produce on 7 acres and
delivers it directly to over 40 restaurant chefs in the San Francisco Bay Area. And the 40-acre Green Mountain Girls Farm in Northfield, Vt., which raises pastured goats, chickens, pigs and turkeys and grows vegetables and fruit trees, offers farm stays, cooking classes and workshops on how to milk goats and make cheese and yogurt. â€œContemporary people are fairly distant from farms, so we're trying to reconnect them directly with family scale faming and rebuild their skills, so they can use them on a daily basis,â€? said farm co-owner Mari Omland. â€œWe offer something deeply personal, highly authentic, hands on.â€? For the Masumotos, who have worked California's fields for four generations, it took time to figure out how to best sustain their operation as giant agribusinesses swallowed other family farms. The corporations that produce millions upon millions of pounds of fruit in the San Joaquin Valley take up massive tracts of land. Gerawan Farming, for example, controls 9,000 acres. And nearby Wawona Packing Co. grows stone fruit on 6,000 acres. The Masumotos, by comparison, produce stone fruit on just 25 acres. David Mas Masumoto switched to organics in the 1980s, but found that selling sustainablyfarmed fruit proved challenging in an era of perfectly uniform supermarket peaches. He wrote a book, â€œEpitaph for a Peach,â€? about the struggle to save his
heirloom peaches and way of life. And over the years, the family turned that unlikely crop and uncommon lifestyle into a hip, profitable business by involving consumers in the farm through stories. Each year, people from Los Angeles, San Francisco and beyond come to the farm to pick their own ripe fruit and spend the day interacting with the farmers. Masumoto writes a farming column for the local paper, and Nikiko Masumoto uses Twitter and Facebook to update the public about the harvest. The family hopes the cookbook adds to those efforts. In addition to recipes ranging from peach gazpacho to peach shortcake, the book includes essays that provide glimpses into a small farm's life and vulnerabilities â€” the sweat, the mistakes, even death.
It's an intentional effort, says Masumoto, because artisanal agriculture is highly personal and transparent when compared with the anonymity and homogeneity of corporate farming. â€œThe new agriculture is about story-based farming. It cares about the community, the farmworkers and the environment,â€? Masumoto says. â€œThe more we can differentiate from corporate farms, the more we can gain a new identity and be financially successful.â€?

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian Our 34-page special quarterly edition, which goes to all Alcorn County households, is coming Tuesday. It’s full of news, features and shopping information.
Retired friends join forces to start new lives together DEAR ABBY: I am in my late 60s. When I mentioned to a retired friend my desire to move to a Southern state known for economic friendliness toward retirees, I discovered she was thinking the same thing. We decided it would be good to buy a house together as tenants in common with rights of survivorship, and to share living expenses. Because I have no family and my friend has very little, neither of us cares what the survivor does with the house. Our main concern is whether or not we’re too old to make new friends and start a new life. It sounds exciting, but I’m wondering whether you or your readers have had any experience moving 1,000 miles away at this stage of life. — CONTEMPLATING CHANGE IN RHODE ISLAND DEAR CONTEMPLATING CHANGE: Change can be an exciting and stimulating experience, and many retirees have successfully relocated. However, and I cannot stress this too strongly, before heading off for the great unknown, you and your friend should consider renting a place for a year. It will give you a chance to gauge your compatibility and learn about the community before locking yourselves in with a mortgage. And if you haven’t already, each of
you should review your plans with an attorney of your own. D E A R ABBY: Is it proper for my and Abigail husband I to share a Van Buren meal when dining out with Dear Abby friends? Restaurant portions are quite large and we eat out most nights. We find sharing is better not only for our health but also for our waistlines. We usually order an appetizer, a salad, an entree, dessert, coffee and a nice bottle of wine. My husband tips 20 percent of the total of the check. I don’t want to offend my friends and I’d like your guidance in this matter. Thank you. — CAREFUL EATER IN CARMEL, IND. DEAR CAREFUL EATER: There is nothing rude about suggesting to your dinner companions that you ask the server for separate checks for the reason you stated. And congratulations on managing your portion control, which many health- and diet-conscious people are doing these days. Bon appetit! DEAR ABBY: I’m a single,
successful professional woman who carries her weight in one place — my belly. Despite many diets and exercise programs, I am unable to lose my belly. Because of this, I’m often mistaken for being pregnant. Strangers in shopping malls, at professional seminars and in hotels while traveling will ask me when I am due. My usual response is, “I’m not pregnant. I’m just chubby and need to hit the gym.” (The other evening, though, I responded, “Not soon enough!”) The last straw was at a recent book signing where the author wrote, “Enjoy your growing life.” Any thoughts? — NOT A BABY BUMP IN MILWAUKEE DEAR NOT A BABY BUMP: I do have a few. Have you considered wearing a foundation garment? If you already wear one, then I have more suggestions. First, discuss this with your doctor, a nutritionist and a personal trainer. And if they can’t help you, talk to a boardcertified plastic surgeon about liposuction. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)
Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll ask yourself, “Am I living, or just existing?” You’ll push yourself to experience more. You’ll be uncomfortable at times too -- that’s how you’ll know you’re doing it right. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s like everything is aligning to help you launch the new you. Your seriously playful approach to life is to blame for the constant ringing of your phone. Everyone wants to be around you. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don’t settle for what other people call “excitement” or expect them to think your particular interest is exciting either. The thing that gets your heart racing is exactly what you should be pursuing. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Maybe it just seems like an ambitious project, but to you it’s something different -- a revolution. You have a rebellious spirit kicking in you today, though you’ll express it in a way that most people won’t recognize as rebellious. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Get
out your fish-eyed lens and focus wide. There may be some distortion around the edges, but your broader view of the possibilities is more important than the accuracy of that view right now. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The person who tells you “my life is hard” is actually living a very cushy existence. What’s “hard” is being around people who are soft and weak without pointing out that others have it much worse. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You can “call out” your own beliefs the same way you might “call out” a loved one for incorrectly spouting off. Don’t believe everything you think. And this week you can’t even believe everything you believe because doing so will limit your options. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). The person who is overly concerned with what he or she is doing for you is acting out of insecurity. It is much more comfortable to be around the person who acts out of genuine
affection and is not so worried about keeping score. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Hosting is your gift. You are like a song that brings everyone together in perfect harmony. The details of the party have nothing to do with its success, except the detail of your warmth and smile. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Tiny troubles will be like tiny bubbles in a fizzy drink. One by one, they will rise to the surface and pop. You might find that without them things get a little flat. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). There’s nothing like the exuberant fun you have with your first-choice person. If this can’t be arranged face-to-face, you’ll have just as much fun using the magic of technology together. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Your thoughts drift to the way a relationship unfolded. Even though it wasn’t entirely awesome, there’s little you would change about it, even if you really could. There’s satisfaction in this reminiscence.

MSU’s ’85 club casts shadow The Associated Press
OMAHA, Neb. — The starstudded 1985 Mississippi State baseball team has cast a long shadow over every Bulldogs club that followed. Now the 2013 team is poised to do what no other Mississippi State team in any sport has done — win a national championship. “They feel like they’re on a mission,” Bulldogs coach John Cohen said Saturday. “They feel like things are coming together for them and they want it all.” The Bulldogs (51-18) will be playing a UCLA team going for its first title in baseball and the school’s NCAA-

Rodriguez records his 300th save Associated Press
MILWAUKEE — Two months ago, Francisco Rodriguez was out of baseball, hoping for a chance to get back to the major leagues. Given another opportunity by the Brewers in May, Rodriguez has made it pay off. He converted his sixth straight save Saturday — the 300th of his career — to help Milwaukee beat Atlanta Braves 2-0 for the second straight day. Rodriguez went 2-7 with a 4.38 ERA during the 2012 season and was released by the Brewers. “A lot of people thought that I was done, that I had retired,” he said. “People forgot that I was just 31- years-old. In my career, just last year was a really bad year. I know what I am capable of doing.” Rodriguez gave up one of the Braves’ four hits in becoming the 25th closer to reach the 300-save milestone. He was aided by a barehanded pickup and throw by shortstop Jean Segura to get leadoff hitter Jordan Shafer. Andrelton Simmons then singled, but Rodriguez got Jason Heyward to line out and Freddie Freeman struck out. After the strikeout, Rodriguez pumped his fist and pointed to the sky. Rodriguez, who began the season out of baseball, was signed by Milwaukee May 16. He has converted all six of his save opportunities and has not been scored upon in 15 of his 16 appearances. “It feels great,” Rodriguez said. “You have no idea how happy and excited I am. I have to continue working hard and hopefully play for many years to come.” Rodriguez said Segura’s play to start the ninth inning was key to his success on Saturday. “It was huge, especially with the score just 2-0,” he said. “Now I can go out there and attack them and put them away. That play definitely changed the whole inning.” Donovan Hand, making his first big league start, allowed only two hits in 4 2-3 innings for Milwaukee. He struck out three and walked one in helping extend Atlanta’s scoreless streak to 24 innings. Brewers manager Ron Roenicke said Hand did a great job for his first start. “He really mixed his pitches and threw a lot of strikes,” Roenicke said. Hand, whose made eight relief appearances this year, said his goal was to pitch three or four innings. “I felt great out there,” he said. “I kept the ball out of the middle of the plate and gave my team a chance to win.” Burke Badenhop (1-3) entered after Hand walked Dan Uggla and got Chris Johnson to groundout to end the fifth. Milwaukee has beaten Atlanta eight straight times at Miller Park, outscoring them 31-9. Tim Hudson (4-7) lost his sixth straight decision, despite giving up just two runs and seven hits in six innings. He allowed RBI singles to Juan Francisco, in the fourth, and Aramis Ramirez, in the fifth inning. The Braves have scored just 10 runs in Hudson’s last nine starts. He has not won in those starts, his worst winless stretch of his career since an eightstart stretch in 2002.
complex in Starkville, Miss., and all have sent messages to Cohen wishing the team good luck. “You hear about Palmeiro and Brantley and those guys who were on that club, and it’s great to be in that company,” first baseman Wes Rea said. “But then again, we’re trying to leave a legacy as well.” Mississippi State and UCLA (47-17) both went 3-0 in bracket play at the CWS, and the finals figure to be low-scoring at TD Ameritrade Park, where a strong south wind has been blowing in and offense has been at a

‘Bench Mobb’ rules in Bulldog’s dugout Associated Press
OMAHA, Neb. — There’s never a dull moment in the Mississippi State dugout thanks to a group of players who call themselves the “Bench Mobb.” Before Friday’s game against Oregon State, a half-dozen Mobb members picked up Ross Mitchell, did a chant on the dugout steps and gave him the heave-ho onto the field. It’s the same way the Mobb starts every game. “Those guys are crazy,” first baseman Wes Rea said. “They play a huge role on this team, as funny as it may be. They keep everybody locked in and
keep the intensity up, and it’s a major factor in a game situation.” The Mobb got its due after pinch-hitter Trey Porter drove in the winning run in the eighth inning of a 5-4 win over Indiana on Monday. Asked how he kept his edge when he had played so little the past month, Porter said, “I’ll give 100 percent of the credit to the Bench Mobb.” Pitchers Ross Mitchell, Evan Mitchell (no relation) and Jacob Lindgren are the founding members, with players coming and going as they please. The Mobb goes through a
series of rituals, starting in the first inning when the boys hoot and holler and, as Evan Mitchell said, “try to make the other pitcher feel bad about himself.” Another Mobb member, Trevor Fitts, leads a sect of players who unbutton their jerseys and bare their chests — “Team No Undershirt” they call themselves — when the Bulldogs need a little jolt of mojo. Mobbsters take turns freestyle rapping in the third inning or whenever the Bulldogs are at bat and need a hit. The Mobb made a 4 1/2-minute rap video that has attracted almost 17,000 YouTube views
since being posted last week. Ross Mitchell is 13-0 as a reliever. No doubt, Bench Mobb karma has helped him. He says he doesn’t worry about his statistics. He said he would rather be a great teammate than a great player. Spoken like a true Mobb boss.

Driver Simonsen dies in 24 Hours of Le Mans race Associated Press
Danish driver Allan Simonsen died following a crash at the 24 Hours of Le Mans on Saturday in the first driver fatality at the high-speed endurance event since 1997. Race organizers said the 34-year-old Simonsen was taken to the hospital after his Aston Martin No. 95 crashed about 10 minutes after the start of the race. The car spun at high speed and skidded into the barrier at the Tertre Rouge corner where speeds reach up to 170 kph (105
mph). The violence of the impact showed as a tire from Simonsen’s car rolled on the track while a door hung open. Simonsen died at the hospital soon after arrival “due to his injuries,” organizers said. “Tragically, and despite the best efforts of the emergency services in attendance, Allan’s injuries proved fatal,” Aston Martin Racing said in a statement on its website. Sebastien Enjolras lost his life in pre-qualifying in 1997.
The last driver fatality in the 24-hour race itself was Jo Gartner in 1986. The worst crash in Le Mans history occurred in 1955 when Pierre Levegh’s Mercedes flew into the crowd, killing more than 80 spectators. Aston Martin, which has five Vantage V8 cars in the GTE-Pro and GTE-Am classes, will continue in the race “at the specific request” of Simonsen’s family and in tribute to the driver. “I would like to extend our deepest sympathies and con-
dolences to the individuals, and families whose friends or loved ones were involved in today’s terrible tragedy,” Aston Martin Racing managing director John Gaw said. The safety car came out after the crash and the race was held up for nearly an hour to repair the guard rail. Simonsen was participating for the seventh time at the endurance race, which is won by the team that completes the most laps in 24 hours with up to three drivers alternating.
Craig Stadler grabs outright lead after 7-under 65 Associated Press
GLENVIEW, Ill. — Craig Stadler was sick of playing bad golf. The 1982 Masters winner had been scoring in the high 70s and low 80s too often while dealing with back, hip and foot ailments, and kept doing so when fully healthy. It was so bad, he considered quitting the game. “I was probably close to that point three months ago,” Stadler said Saturday after firing a 7-under 65 at North Shore Country Club to take the lead in the Encompass
Championship with a total of 12-under 132. He went to teacher Billy Harmon in Palm Springs, Calif., in a last-ditch effort to repair his game. “Billy’s standing there and he said, ‘What are we doing?’ “ Stadler recalled. “I said, ‘You’ve got two days to fix it or I’m done, very simple.’ It’s not fixed, but shooting in the 60s is a lot better than shooting 78s and 82s. “It was no fun, and it was getting to be embarrassing.” The 60-year-old Stadler says his makeover isn’t com-
plete, but he’s playing more like the Stadler of old rather than an old Stadler. He shot 67 on Friday to share the lead with four other players, then raced ahead of the field on Saturday morning. Stadler holds a twostroke lead on Bob Tway and Jeff Sluman entering the final round. Stadler hasn’t won on the Champions Tour since 2004. The declining quality of his play the last few years finally triggered soul searching, and the makeover with Harmon. “I’ve just played rotten,”
Stadler said. “I kind of went on a mission a month ago, and it was either try to figure out what the heck I’m doing wrong and fix it or I’m going to quit. It’s kind of getting fixed. I have to think about four, five different thoughts on every shot.” His putting on Saturday was unconscious. He took only 23 putts, one-putting 11 greens. Putting and his short game have come back. “Once you start doing this for a lifetime, you kind Please see GOLF | 11A

premium. UCLA will send junior right-hander and No. 1 starter Adam Plutko (9-3) to the mound for Game 1. Cohen was undecided on his starter. The Bulldogs have won 10 straight one-run games, including two in the CWS, and have won 15 of 18 this season. UCLA in 17-2 in one-run games and is 30-1 in games in which it holds its opponent to two runs or fewer. The Bruins will try to squeeze as much as it can out of its limited offense. Their .248 season batting average is 262nd out of 296 teams in Division I, and they’re batting just .182 at the CWS. No national champion has had a CWS batting average of lower than .249 (1988 Stanford) in the metal-bat era that started in 1974 or lower than .208 (1970 Southern California) since the championship started in 1947.

house did not comment to reporters on what they were looking for or what caused them to return to the house located not far from where the Patriots practice and about a mile from where a jogger found the body of Odin Lloyd on Monday. Lloyd family members said Friday that he had been dating the sister of Hernandez’s fiancee for about two years. They said the two men were friends who were together the night Lloyd died. Authorities have ruled Lloyd’s death a homicide. A spokeswoman for the Bristol District Attorney’s office declined to comment on the investigation Saturday. A state police spokesman referred questions to the district attorney’s office. An attorney for Hernandez has said he would not comment on the searches. Three search warrants were issued in the investigation earlier last week but have not been returned, meaning they’re not public. No arrest warrants were filed in state courts by the time court closed Friday, Attleboro District Court clerk magistrate Mark E. Sturdy said. Courts were closed Saturday.

AiM offering classical musical â€˜South Pacificâ€™ BY JEFF YORK For the Daily Corinthian
SELMER, Tenn. â€” The classic Rodgers and Hammerstein Musical â€œSouth Pacificâ€? will be the season finale for Arts in McNairy. The shows began Friday night and will continue through Tuesday night in the Latta theater at the McNairy County Visitorâ€™s Center. AiM will offer military, police and emergency service personnel one free ticket to each of the shows. The personnel must be in uniform or have a valid ID. This will be done in connection with the military background of the musical. The show will run from June 21-25 at 7:30 p.m. with a matinee on Sunday, June 23 at 2 p.m. â€œSouth Pacificâ€? is about love set in World War II as experienced by sailors and nurses at a South
Pacific island outpost. An AiM perennial favorite, Christy Whitten, plays Nellie Forbush who meets and falls in love with island expatriate Emile de Becque played by Corinth physician Dr. Richard Strachan. Nellie must decide if she is ready to be a mother to his children whose mother was Polynesian. â€œWe have a tremendous cast that has worked very hard on this musical,â€? said director Bryan Essary. â€œWe expect big crowds for each performance and I know the people will enjoy the music.â€? The plot centers on an American nurse stationed on a South Pacific island during World War II who falls in love with a middle-aged expatriate French plantation owner but struggles to accept his mixed-race children.

A secondary romance, between a U.S. lieutenant and a young Tonkinese woman, explores his fears of the social consequences should he marry his Asian sweetheart. The issue of racial prejudice is candidly explored throughout the musical, most controversially in the lieutenantâ€™s song, â€œYouâ€™ve Got to Be Carefully Taught.â€? Supporting characters, including a comic petty officer and the Tonkinese girlâ€™s mother, help to tie the stories together. On a South Pacific island during World War II, two half-Polynesian children, Ngana and Emilia, happily sing as they play together. Ensign Nellie Forbush, a naĂŻve Navy nurse, has fallen in love with de Becque, a middleaged French plantation owner, though she has known him only briefly. Even though everyone else is worried about the outcome of the war, Nellie tells Emile that she is sure everything will turn out all right. Emile also loves Nellie, and each wonders if the other reciprocates those feelings. Emile expresses his love for Nellie, recalling how they met at the officersâ€™ club dance and instantly were attracted to each other. Nellie, promising to think about their relationship, returns to the hospital. Emile calls Ngana and Emilia to him, revealing to the audience that they are his children, unbeknownst to Nellie. The musical has a large, talented cast and packs in the fun, music and drama one expects from a Rodgers and Hammerstein musical. The cast will also be accompanied by a live orchestra of members from the AiM Community Band. AiM especially

â€˘ People of all ages can suffer from a form of Osteoarthritis (OA), also known as a Degenerative Joint Disease. Symptoms that lead to OA are: suffering from pain, weakening, stiffness, inflammation and creaking of the joints. â€˘ Knee injections for OA patients are now being given (here in our office) to people who do not want (or necessarily need) surgery. â€˘ This process reduces the pain and increases the mobility of the patient; it can even slow down the deterioration of the joints. â€˘ This is a safe effective treatment using natural substances that are present in the body. â€˘ We carry several joint supplements/vitamins. Ask us for more details.
â€œI have been a patient of Magnolia State Family Medicine and am receiving Supartz therapy. Supartz relieves the pain in my knees and has helped prevent me from having surgery. When I go to the clinic I feel like Iâ€™m with family. It doesnâ€™t seem like a medical facility at all. The atmosphere is more like home. The staff listens to my needs and concerns and is very encouraging. I love that Magnolia State Family Medicine is a Christian based clinic that is respectful to their patients.

‘Jayhawkers’ of the 7th Kansas Cavalry Do you remember mom telling you, “If you can’t say something good about someone, don’t say anything at all?” If I followed her advice this story would be awful short. You see, the 7th Kansas Cavalry had a very welldeserved reputation for being not very nice guys. Don’t get me wrong, they were very good at soldiering and I could Tom point to Parson any number of battles Park Ranger and skirmishes where they proved their mettle. We are not going to discuss their bravery, just their manners. The regiment was nicknamed the “Jayhawkers” after a bird known to “worry its prey before devouring it,” though during the course of the war, and because of these guys, “Jayhawkers” became synonymous with excessive foraging, looting and thievery. The roots of their bad behavior laid with the organization of the regiment in “Bloody Kansas,” a region which had been fighting their own Civil War long before the rest of the country. Less than half the men were actually from Kansas, the majority coming from Northern Illinois and Ohio. However, all of the soldiers were men with strong abolitionist views, in fact the son of the infamous John Brown was one of the men in the ranks. Another was William F. Cody, soon to be known as “Buffalo Bill.” Because of their strong views against slavery they proved to be extraordinarily harsh in dealing with the locals in whatever Southern state they happened to be in. The leaders of the regiment, Col. Charles Jennison and Lt. Col. Daniel Anthony, not only condoned the behavior, they encouraged it. The first indication these guys were trouble came in early November of ’61 when they entered the town of Pleasant Hill, Missouri. After they drove away a few Confederates they methodically pillaged every building and then reduced the town to ashes. There was nothing left. Col. Anthony really got on the bad side of his superiors when the 7th Kansas was brought across the Mississippi River and into Tennessee. At that time slavery was still completely legal in the state and runaway slaves were required to be sent back to their masters. You can easily imagine what the abolitionists of the 7th Kansas thought of such orders. Anthony gathered the regiment one evening
Troopers of the 7th Kansas Cavalry, nicknamed the Jayhawkers. and threatened to punish anyone who enforced the Fugitive Slave Act and then gave the men orders to run out of camp any sheriffs or marshals looking for runaways. Slaves were routinely hidden in the camp and anyone in search of them was escorted out of the camp with a pair of pistols at his head. Two days after the meeting, a squad of the cavalrymen broke into a widow’s home, stole everything of value, and threatened to return and burn her alive if the old woman told anyone of their fun. For the next several weeks they robbed and burned to their heart’s content. Nice guys. Eventually their unsavory reputation reached the department commander, Gen. Halleck, at his headquarters in the Verandah House in Corinth. Halleck wrote to the Secretary of War concerning the out of control soldiers. “I have reports from nearly every town they passed through, and numerous reclamations from the citizens on the road are coming in for payment for property stolen and robbed or destroyed by them.” Attempts to call a halt to the outrages brought wails of protest from Kansas politicians who loudly declared the innocent 7th Kansas was being singled out and picked on for political reasons. The soldiers were still robbing and burning as they made their way closer to Corinth. They
Sgt. Fletcher Pomeroy, 7th Kansas Cavalry paused in Bethel, Tn., long enough to steal every horse they could find. The senior officer of the garrison wrote, “The conduct of this command since it came in this vicinity has been such that it makes one ashamed of the volunteer service of the U. S. Army. Complaints come to me of their having robbed the farmers of all their stock and in some cases of their watches and money. They have in some instances attempted to force the women to cohabit with them when found at home alone.” The two senior officers, Jennison and Anthony were shipped back to the Sunshine State and Majors Albert Lee and Thomas Herrick went to great lengths to improve
the regiment’s sullied reputation. Well, at least Herrick did; Lee proved to be cut from the same cloth as his predecessors. By mid-July of ’62 they arrived in Mississippi, passed through Corinth and took up residence in Rienzi. Sergeant Fletcher Pomeroy, a 20-year-old trooper from Wyanet, Illinois, took affront to the claims his regiment was a bad one. “The Provost Marshal is very hard on us Jayhawkers; he says he is bound to keep us in camp. Everything that is stolen is laid to our regiment.” Pomeroy blamed the thefts on men from Iowa and Michigan. Just three days after claiming his regiment’s innocence Pomeroy wrote
in his diary about a failed patrol. On the return to camp Colonel Lee “sent his men out to gather up stock and started back to camp with 85 head of cattle and a number of horses and mules.” At long last someone took a stand against the men of the 7th Kansas and that someone was Brigadier General William S. Rosecrans, the commander of the Corinth garrison. On the 16th of August he signed Special Order No. 12 which stated, “The pay of the Kansas 7th cavalry shall be stopped until they have, by subscription or otherwise, paid the sum of $1,035.55, the value of tobacco and sugar destroyed by them at Trenton, Tenn. Paymasters are directed not to make any payments to the troops herein named, until notified that this order is complied with.” Colonel Lee was livid. As far as he was concerned the soldiers had destroyed supplies bound for the Confederate army and should have been rewarded rather than censured. Young Pomeroy spoke for the regiment when he said, “But every man has determined to forfeit all his wages before giving one cent of them to rebels for sugar and tobacco. Col. Lee says his right arm shall wither before his money shall clink in rebel coffers.” There were a few months of relative quiet as the men of the 7th stayed busy on patrols and behaved themselves for the most part. I couldn’t say whether it was due
to the negative attention they had been getting or if they had taken everything worth stealing in the neighborhood. Eventually they were moved further west where there were fresh pickings to be had. Their bad character reached its height in January of ’63 when General Ulysses Grant was forced to deal with their wicked ways. The previous December the 7th Kansas was involved in the pursuit of Gen. Earl Van Dorn’s cavalry in the wake of the attack on Holly Springs. They used the ride to hone their old skills. “The conduct of this regiment at New Albany,” was so bad, wrote the future president, that they were frequently “stopping to plunder the citizens instead of pursuing the enemy when they were so near to them.” “All the laurels won by the regiment and their commander on the pursuit of the enemy from Holly Springs to Coffeeville have been more than counterbalanced by their bad conduct since. Their present course may serve to frighten women and children and helpless old men, but will never drive out an armed enemy.” A case in point was a local resident who rode his horse into camp to make a personal complaint to Colonel Lee. The colonel responded by stealing the man’s horse. The troopers of the 7th Kansas never reformed Please see CAVALRY | 4B

State receives top ten ranking for deer hunting I was flipping through the pages of a well-known outdoor magazine around this time last year when I came across an article that caused me to pause and my eyebrows to rise. Any story pertaining to deer hunting grabs my attention, but this one in particular was a real stunner. I’ve been saying for some time now that Mississippi’s hunters would start seeing and harvesting larger numbers of super-sized bucks with impressive headgear. Never in my wildest dreams, though, would I have thought the state would be receiving national recognition from a respected outdoor pub-
lication as being one of the top destinations in the country for huntDavid ing whiteGreen tails. W h e n Outdoors you think of hunting for trophy caliber whitetail bucks, Mississippi is generally not one of the first states that come to mind, nor has it been anytime in the past as far as I’ve known. Over the past several hunting seasons however, Mississippi hunters have harvested some of the largest white-tailed bucks on record, leading the
state into being acknowledged as one of the top white-tailed deer states in the nation. This revelation was noted in the story I read last year, and it was recently highlighted in the June/July issue of Outdoor Life Magazine. Outdoor Life ranked Mississippi seventh in the nation for producing large bucks, with the ranking based on four points of emphasis for each state: number of bucks qualifying for the Boone and Crockett records program, hunter density, cost of guided hunts, and hunter friendliness in terms of laws and regulations. The top ten states were ranked as follows: Ken-
tucky; Kansas; Indiana; Iowa; Minnesota; Illinois; Mississippi; Nebraska; Ohio; and Oklahoma. The top ten ranking is no surprise to Lann Wilf, Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks Deer Program Biologist. “MDWFP biologist work with many landowners and hunting clubs that practice sound deer management on their property,” Wilf said. “A management objective for many of these properties is to produce olderaged bucks, and these older-aged bucks simply equal bigger deer.” In addition to strong deer management in Mississippi, the state has some of the most fertile
soils in the nation, which aids in growing bigger deer. Some of the best deer come from along the Mississippi and Big Black Rivers. According to wildlife officials, Mississippi hunters and land managers have plenty of reason to take pride in their state’s ranking, as they are the ones responsible for implementing management practices that result in healthy deer populations. Mississippi is historically known for being on or at the bottom of every chart imaginable, usually not in a good way. For a change of pace though, it’s nice to see our state climb into the upper echelon in a sport that a ma-
jority of our sportsmen enjoy doing. Sportsmen generally start looking forward to deer season toward the latter part of summer, but with good news of this magnitude, the itch for the season to hurry up and get here is likely to come sooner rather than later.

MSU gardens test varieties, conditions BY BONNIE COBLENTZ MSU Ag Communications
BILOXI — Many frustrated gardeners have noted how plants often look their best on retail shelves, but ongoing tests at Mississippi State University helps these gardeners figure out which flowers will meet expectations. Gary Bachman, horticulturist with the MSU Extension Service at the Coastal Research and Extension Center in Biloxi, said the university tests flower selections at two sites. Plans are underway to conduct flower variety testing at five locations around the state soon. “Mississippi State is one of the organizations that companies across the country send plants to for testing,” Bachman said. “These selections are planted according to specific guidelines, and we follow strict criteria in evaluating the plants.” Data collected from test sites is compiled to present an accurate picture of the plants’ performance in various settings. These carefully monitored experiments are called variety trials. Information from variety trials is used to determine the best zones and conditions for the plants. It is also used to confer honors such as All-America Selection status or Mississippi Medallion winner. Bachman said MSU has conducted trials at Poplarville the longest, and it has conducted variety trials at Crystal Springs for
at least 37 years. “The test site at the South Mississippi Research and Extension Center in Poplarville is designed more for commercial growers and is part of the All-America Selections system,” Bachman said. “The Truck Crops Branch Experiment Station at Crystal Springs is the home of the very popular Fall Flower and Garden Fest, and it is designed more for consumers.” Both sites take in plants given to them by plant companies and evaluate them over the years. The Mississippi Medallion designations use data from both MSU locations. Bachman has a goal of establishing flower trial locations at each of the state’s four Research and Extension Centers and on MSU’s main campus in Starkville. These locations will cover the state’s four U.S. Department of Agriculture planting zones, which range from 9a on the Gulf Coast to 7b in north Mississippi. In addition to Poplarville and Biloxi, MSU has Research and Extension Centers in Verona and Raymond. In addition to gathering careful research data, these trial gardens give gardeners a chance to see the plants in action. Visitors can see firsthand how big plants get, what colors they produce in blooms, what their foliage looks like and even how the plants will look when grown in combination with others.

Tony Soprano more than a memorable character The Associated Press
NEW YORK — James Gandolfini’s portrayal of Tony Soprano represented more than just a memorable TV character. He changed the medium, making fellow antiheroes like Walter White and Dexter Morgan possible and shifting the balance in quality drama away from broadcast television. The passage of time since “The Sopranos” ended in 2007 brought all of that into sharp relief even before Gandolfini’s death of a heart attack while vacationing in Italy on Wednesday. Television characters certainly weren’t onedimensional when David Chase cast the littleknown Gandolfini in the lead role of his series about the personal and work families of a New Jersey crime boss. But there were limits: Flaws in a TV hero character had to be affectionate grace notes, like Jim Rockford’s poor choice of friends or Arnie Becker’s womanizing on “L.A. Law.” The unwritten rule:
Don’t make your central character someone viewers will recoil from. Break the mold and failure looms. The 1980s comedy “Buffalo Bill” on NBC was highly regarded but conventional wisdom was that it lasted only a year because Dabney Coleman’s lead character was such a creep. It’s possible to even pinpoint the moment that “rule” was wiped off the books. In the fifth episode of “The Sopranos,” Tony accompanies his daughter on a trip to scout out colleges and spies another mobster who was hiding in the witness protection program. Tony strangles him. “There’s no question Tony Soprano was at the center of ‘The Sopranos,’” said David Bianculli, a longtime TV critic who teaches television at New Jersey’s Rowan University. “And there was no question how flawed and sometimes despicable he was. But he also had things people could relate to,” like his tortured relationship with his mother and emotional issues that
led him to seek psychiatric help. Draw a direct line from Tony to the serial killer at the center of Showtime’s “Dexter,” the chemistry teacher turned drug kingpin in AMC’s “Breaking Bad,” Jax Teller and the motorcycle club on FX’s “Sons of Anarchy,” the turncoat hero Nicholas Brody on “Homeland,” the spies Philip and Elizabeth Jennings on FX’s “The Americans.” Keep going. “I don’t think ‘The Shield’ would have happened without ‘The Sopranos,’” said John Landgraf, the FX network’s president and general manager. He’s not sure a pilot episode with the lead character, Michael Chiklis’ Vic Mackey, killing another cop would have been green-lighted if it hadn’t been three years after Tony made his debut. It’s not just psychopaths, either. Don Draper’s morally compromised advertising executive on AMC’s “Mad Men” owes its existence to the television “rule” that Tony
Soprano ended. The characters’ flaws earn a pass, even devoted support from viewers, through strong writing and acting. Notice something else? All of those characters appear on cable, not broadcast programs. “The Sopranos” on HBO led the way, providing the example to other networks that they could change their appeal and identity by investing in quality series that create a buzz. “Cable networks are no different from broadcast networks,” Bianculli said. “When they see a success, they want to copy it.” “The Sopranos” in 1999 was the first cable series to earn an Emmy nomination for best television drama, although ABC’s “The Practice” won. In 2003 both “The Sopranos” and HBO’s “Six Feet Under” were nominated, the first time there were multiple cable nominees for best drama. “The Sopranos” broke through and won the Emmy in 2004 and 2007. Last year five of the six nominees for that award
(including the victorious “Homeland”) were cable series. The only broadcast series nominated was PBS’ “Downton Abbey.” In 13 years, that’s a complete turnaround. Landgraf was working at NBC back at the beginning (where they were putting a pretty good drama named “The West Wing” on the air) and the success of “The Sopranos” was noted. Broadcasters were envious of the freedom cable networks had to depict sex, language and violence. But it was the authenticity of the characters on cable that made the real difference, he said. Their audiences shrinking and the stakes higher, the broadcast networks have generally responded by being less willing to take chances. “The Sopranos” broke ground with its structure, too. New story lines popped up all the time, sometimes dramatic, sometimes banal. Sometimes they were resolved. Sometimes, like an odd trip to the pine barrens,
they were forgotten. Sometimes what seems to be important turns out to be random and withers away. Like in life itself. That gave the show’s finale all of its power. Tony’s family gathers for a family dinner, bonding over onion rings. All of the show’s unresolved story lines provided the backdrop. The timing — the show’s last supper — offered an edge-of-yourseat tension. Will there be one grand climax? How many questions will be answered? Will Tony pay for his sins by being blown away? Nah. Nothing much happened. Kind of like most nights for most people, really. Ever since that ending there have been periodic reports or hopes that the cast of “The Sopranos” would gather again for a feature film. That dream ended Wednesday night in Rome, just like the shooting death of John Lennon ended the idea of a Beatles reunion. Without James Gandolfini, what’s the point?
Nashville hosts puppet festival The Associated Press
NASHVILLE, Tenn. — The rock stars of the puppet world perform this weekend at a festival for top-notch puppeteers, some of whom traveled here from as far away as Germany and Japan. The International Puppet Festival is the biggest event of its kind in North America, according to Phillip Huber, the puppeteer behind the China Girl in “Oz the Great and Powerful” and the marionettes in “Being John Malkovich.” “It’s definitely not rinky dink. It’s on par with many of the European festivals,” said Huber, who performing his “Suspended Animation” show on Saturday night as one of two paid performances to benefit the otherwisefree festival. “You would have to travel the world to see this kind of talent. And to see it in one place over a weekend — it’s fantastic.” Performances include Sombras Chinas from Argentina, where a puppeteer creates complex shadow puppets using only her hands and a few simple props. There will also be the object theater of France’s Velo Theatre, in which a puppeteer/ storyteller stays on stage and anything he picks up can be transformed into
a puppet, and the traditional Bunraku puppetry of Japanese troupe Kawasemi-za with the show “Silent Poems,” which has no words and includes a giant dragon puppet that fills the stage. The library’s own troupe, Wishing Chair Productions, is performing a newly created country-music themed show Thursday called “String City,” featuring intricate marionettes at the Country Music Hall of Fame and Museum. Jon Ludwig, the artistic director at the Center for Puppetry Arts in Atlanta, said puppetry is so visual and can easily transcend language and culture. “When puppets are brought to life by a puppeteer, it cuts through any barrier and you totally believe you are looking at a live thing,” he said. But the different troops are in no way generic. “You get a sense of what the culture is like,” he said. “A lot of times you see that in the design, each has a cultural style. Sometimes it’s surprising. It’s not always what you think.” Today, Wishing Chair Productions performs original shows nearly every weekend at the library. Troupe leader Brian Hull said the idea for the
festival came after a puppet troupe from Nashville’s sister city of Magdeburg, Germany, came to town as part of a cultural exchange in 2004. The next year, Hull took some of the Nashville puppets to Germany and ended up meeting people from several other troupes, including the Velo Theatre of France. “It turns out they are one of the greatest in the world,” Hull said. “I had no idea how big they were. People are calling me, asking, ‘How did you get them to come do a puppet show at your library?’” Although the shows are free, many require tickets due to limited seating. Tari Hughes is president of the Nashville Public Library Foundation, the nonprofit that raises private funds to enhance the library’s collections and programing and is funding the festival at a cost of about $500,000. “People hear ‘puppets’ and ‘library’ and they might think of sock puppets and story time,” Hughes said. “But really we have this incredible talent we’ve brought in, and they perform in so many different styles. These are puppet troupes that are really rock stars in their own countries.”
100 Problems? Billboard chart won’t count Jay-Z-Samsung 1M downloads The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Jay-Z’s got 99 problems and the Billboard chart is one. Billboard said Friday it will not include the 1 million album downloads Jay-Z is giving to Galaxy mobile phone users through a deal with Samsung. Jay-Z announced the partnership this week. His new album, “Magna Carta Holy Grail,” will be released July 7, but it will go out to 1 million Samsung users on July 4. In a letter posted on
Billboard’s website, editorial director Bill Werde says it won’t count the downloads because Samsung ultimately isn’t selling the album on its phones. He adds that it wasn’t easy turning down Jay-Z’s request to include the downloads on the Billboard chart. “The passionate and articulate argument by Jay’s team that something was for sale and Samsung bought it ... doesn’t mesh with precedent,” Werde wrote.
Werde added that Billboard has adjusted the charts to reflect how music is being consumed, and that Jay-Z’s request gives the company more to think about. “When someone like Jay-Z takes the issue public in the way that he did, it encourages us to look at it with that much more rigor essentially,” Werde said in a phone interview Friday. “I think what will happen in the next couple weeks is we’ll advance these conversations some more.”

Because of these changes, the order to force the Kansans to pay back the money for the sugar and tobacco was quietly ignored. The paymaster returned to camp and all of the men received their
back pay. Sgt. Pomeroy was able to smugly write, “All of this goes to show that our regiment was about a year and a half ahead of the government in our methods. It is now doing what it condemned us for doing a few months ago.” (Tom Parson is a National Park Service ranger at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center.)
