Circuit judge tosses civil suit against city BY JEBB JOHNSTON

A Circuit Court judge recently threw out a civil suit against the City of Corinth stemming from a fatal 2009 traffic accident involving a city vehicle. The suit filed by relatives including the deceased’s mother, Linda Fay Camper of Senatobia, argued that the city was liable and sought a jury trial. In a two-day bench trial in Alcorn

County Circuit Court, Judge Thomas Gardner III ruled in favor of the city, dismissing the case with prejudice. The crash happened on Proper Street near the Country Lane Apartments on Sept. 24, 2009. Misty Joy Lipe, 31, of 4160 County Road 200, Corinth, was killed when a 2000 Kia Sephia traveling west on Proper Street collided with the back of a stationary

city brush truck. Lipe was a passenger in the vehicle driven by William Murray Lipe Jr., 37. The plaintiff’s complaint states that the Kia topped a rise and was confronted with the brush truck while the oncoming lane was blocked by an eastbound vehicle. The suit argued that the city was negligent for failing to flag and delineate the roadway ap-

proach, to train and supervise the workers on the scene, and to deploy proper safety equipment. One of the street department workers was standing in the truck while the other was handing brush to him, according to the Corinth Police Department report on the crash. The city denied any negligence in the matter. Last August, William Lipe

Jr. pleaded guilty to a charge of DUI death and was sentenced to serve six years in custody of the Mississippi Department of Corrections. He is currently incarcerated at the Chickasaw County Correctional Facility. Misty Joy Lipe was interred in Tate County. The trial was held on May 28 and 29, and the judgment was filed in Alcorn County Circuit Court on Tuesday.

From COO to CEO Humes takes over reins at Magnolia Regional HC BY BOBBY J. SMITH

There’s a new man in charge at Magnolia Regional Health Center. Ronny Humes, formerly the chief operating officer, is moving up to chief executive officer, following the departure of longtime CEO Rick Napper. “Obviously Rick got this place in a very positive model going forward,” said the new CEO. “I certainly feel what we’ve done here has established a medical staff that will be successful going forward.” His goals for the hospital include a continuing focus on improving quality while controlling costs.

“That’s what health care reform is all about — quality and cost,” said Humes. Another area of focus is to continue supporting Humes the hospital’s cardiology fellowship and the effort to bring good doctors to Corinth and MRHC. While Humes is moving into a new position, he’s no new face at Magnolia Regional Health CenPlease see HUMES | 3A

Today in history


ship with Christ.” Bible Memory Buddies such as Truman, Duke, Swift, Sir Valiant and Victoria helped the 65 youngsters experience God’s Word in a fun way. Children were set to learn a different Bible point each day to reinforce the rolling theme of Standing Strong. The points were: • God’s love helps us stand strong. • Family and friends help us stand strong. • Prayer helps us stand strong.

Today is Wednesday, June 26, the 177th day of 2013. There are 188 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On June 26, 1963, President John F. Kennedy visited West Berlin, where he delivered his famous speech expressing solidarity with the city’s residents, declaring: “Ich bin ein Berliner” (I am a Berliner).

• Trusting God helps us stand strong. • The Bible helps us stand strong. There were also the stations of Epic Bible Adventures, Imagination Station, Chadder’s Royal Theatre & Mission along with the King’s Kitchen. Fun activities like rebuilding the walls of Jerusalem with Nehemiah and other fun outside games await children over the next couple of days. “I have really enjoyed VBS,” said Henson. “The kids are having fun and more importantly learning about God.”

On this date: In 1483, Richard III began his reign as King of England (he was crowned the following month at Westminster Abbey). In 1870, the first section of Atlantic City, N.J.’s Boardwalk was opened to the public. In 1915, following a whirlwind courtship, poet T.S. Eliot married Vivienne Haigh-Wood in London. (The marriage proved disastrous, but the couple never divorced.) In 1925, Charlie Chaplin’s classic comedy “The Gold Rush” premiered at Grauman’s Egyptian Theatre in Hollywood. In 1936, President Franklin D. Roosevelt was nominated for a second term of office by delegates to the Democratic national convention in Philadelphia. In 1945, the charter of the United Nations was signed by 50 countries in San Francisco. In 1948, the Berlin Airlift began in earnest after the Soviet Union cut off land and water routes to the isolated western sector of Berlin. In 1950, President Harry S. Truman authorized the Air Force and Navy to enter the Korean conflict. In 1973, former White House counsel John W. Dean told the Senate Watergate Committee about an “enemies list” kept by the Nixon White House. In 1988, three people were killed when a new Airbus A320 jetliner carrying more than 130 people crashed into a forest during a demonstration at an air show in Mulhouse (muh-LOOZ’), France. In 1990, President George H.W. Bush went back on his “no-newtaxes” campaign pledge, conceding that tax increases would have to be included in any deficit-reduction package worked out with congressional negotiators. In 1993, President Bill Clinton announced the U.S. had launched missiles against Iraqi targets because of “compelling evidence” Iraq had plotted to assassinate former President George H.W. Bush. Baseball Hall-ofFamer Roy Campanella died in Woodland Hills, Calif., at age 71. Ten years ago: The U.S. Supreme Court, in Lawrence v. Texas, struck down, 6-3, state bans on gay sex. A jury in Fort Worth, Texas, convicted former nurse’s aide Chante Mallard (SHAHN’-tay MAL’-urd) of murder for hitting a homeless man, Gregory Biggs, with her car, driving home with his mangled body lodged in the windshield and leaving him to die in her garage. (Mallard was later sentenced to 50 years in prison.) Former South Carolina Sen. Strom Thurmond died in Edgefield, S.C., at age 100.

on a state but international level,” said CARE Foundation Chairman Sandy Williams. “Dr. Daggett will help the districts focus on modern education and what they need to compete.” Daggett, who founded the International Center for Leadership in Education in 1991, was a teacher and administrator at the secondary and postsecondary levels and a director with the New York State Education Department prior to holding his current position. While with the education department in New York, he spearheaded restructuring initiatives to focus the state’s education system on the skills and knowledge students need in a technological, information-based society. He has spoken to hundreds of thousands of educators and education stakeholders in all 50 states. His enlightening, entertaining, and motivating messages have helped his listeners to look at education differently by challenging their assumptions about the purposes, benefits, and effectiveness of American schools. Dr. Daggett inspires his audiences both to embrace what is best about our education system and to make the changes necessary to meet the needs of all students in the 21st century. “I was most impressed when I heard him,” said Williams. “He delivers a powerful message in a very entertaining way.” Dr. Daggett is recognized worldwide for his proven ability to move pre-K-12 education sys-

tems towards more rigorous and relevant skills and knowledge for all students. He has assisted a number of states and hundreds of school districts with their school improvement initiatives. A graduate of Temple University, he has also collaborated with education ministries in several countries and with the Council of Chief State School Officers, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation, the National Governors Association, and many other national organizations. He serves on several advisory boards, including the NASA Education Advisory Board, since 2008, and the USA Today Education Advisory Board. Daggett, the author of numerous books about learning and education, textbooks and research studies, reports, and journal articles, is the creator of the Application Model and Rigor/Relevance Framework, a practical planning and instructional tool for determining the relevance of curriculum and assessment to real-world situations. Dr. Daggett’s Rigor/ Relevance Framework has become a cornerstone of many school reform efforts throughout the United States. “Dr. Daggett will be delivering two different messages,” said Williams of the August schedule. “It is important to get the attendance of all citizens, especially parents, along city and civic boards there at the night session.” Last year’s, inaugural event drew around 700 people. Williams is hoping for “a crowd of 300” for the night meeting. “One of the chief compo-

nents of drawing industry here is education,” said the CARE Foundation Chairman. “If we don’t step up and do the best we can by keeping our residents educated along with keeping our educators apprised of the situation, we will start to fall behind.” Williams also stressed a need for sponsors for the education event. Those interested can contact CARE Administrative Assistant Mona Lisa Grady at 662284-4858.


ter. His appointment as the new CEO comes after spending nearly a decade as a Magnolia employee as well as many previous years working with the hospital with a related company. Humes, 56, started working with MRHC in 2004 and has served as COO for almost five years, since October 2008. He previously worked for Quorum Health Resources, a hospital management company that counts MRHC as a client. Humes spent 12 years working for the Quorum corporate office in a regional role, working with hospitals in the Southeast.

Prior to his years with Quorum, Humes worked at several hospitals in his native Kentucky, including Bowling Green, Franklin and Greenville. “I worked at various hospitals — from 50-bed hospitals to ones with 300 beds,” said Humes. “I had a wide range of experiences as chief financial officer.” Humes originally hails from a small town outside Elizabethtown, Ky. He graduated from Western Kentucky University at Bowling Green in 1979 with a degree in accounting. He and his wife, Pam, are currently looking to buy a home in Corinth. They have one daughter, Laurel.

Corinth, Miss.

History not tucked away only in books JACKSON (AP) — As Mississippi schools are increasing efforts teach civil rights history, they could turn to people who are still living, and whose memories are still sharp, for firsthand accounts of what it was like to challenge segregation in the Jim Crow South. These are the kinds of lessons that bring history to life. Tougaloo College, in north Jackson, was a hub of activism in the 1960s. The private, historically black college has been sponsoring events this summer to let high school and college students hear civil rights veterans talk about integrating all-white venues such as libraries, lunch counters and waiting areas of bus stations. “They fought for what we just call first-class citizenship,” said Delores Bolden Stamps, Tougaloo’s vice Emily president for institutional adWagster vancement. Stamps led a discussion Pettus May 29 with a panel that inCapitol Dome cluded Euvester Simpson of Jackson, who was jailed with Fannie Lou Hamer in June 1963 for challenging segregation at the bus station in Winona, ; James Bradford of Jackson, who was jailed in March 1961 as part of the Tougaloo Nine, a group of black students who sat down to study at the all-white Jackson Municipal Library; and Joan Trumpauer Mulholland of Arlington, Va., a white Tougaloo student who participated in the May 1963 sit-in at the whites-only lunch counter at Woolworth’s in downtown Jackson. Simpson, an Itta Bena native, became active in the civil rights movement when she was a high school student in the Delta. She later graduated from Millsaps College in Jackson, but said she feels a connection to Tougaloo. “I wanted to change conditions that I lived in,” Simpson recalled. “I wanted change not only for myself. I wanted it for my parents.” On June 9, 1963, Simpson was one of 10 black people returning to Mississippi from a voter-registration workshop in South Carolina. Hamer remained on the bus during a stop in Winona, while Simpson and others went into the station. Some went to the restroom, and others entered the white side of restaurant. All were arrested, including 46-year-old Hamer. Simpson, still a teenager, was put in a cell with Hamer. During the next several days, people in their group were beaten repeatedly — beatings that, according to Hamer, were done by black jail trusties under order from white deputies. On June 12, hours after Mississippi NAACP leader Medgar Evers was assassinated outside his Jackson home, a group from the Southern Christian Leadership Conference got Hamer, Simpson and the others out of jail. Hamer later became a nationally famous for helping challenge the seating of Mississippi’s all-white delegation to the 1964 Democratic National Convention and for saying she was “sick and tired of being sick and tired” of waiting for equal treatment. She died of cancer in 1977, and a bronze statue of her was dedicated last October in her hometown of Ruleville. Bradford said the Tougaloo Nine chose to integrate the main library in Jackson because it was taxpayer-funded and because the all-black library in the city was inadequate. “The objective was to be arrested nonviolently,” Bradford said, to bring attention to their cause. The five men and four women spent about 36 hours in jail. They were convicted of breach of peace and fined $100 each. Bradford didn’t become a civil-rights activist overnight. He said that growing up in Memphis, Tenn., he became tired of “a lifetime of indignities,” including having to walk miles to black schools that were shabbier than white ones, having to sit in balconies in segregated movie theaters and being allowed to go to the zoo only on certain days. Bradford said: “You get sick of that kind of stuff.”

Prayer for today Father, it is through Christ Jesus our Lord we pray in faith believing You turn tragedy into triumph, as You work out all things together for our good. Amen.

A verse to share “And said, O my God, I am ashamed and blush to lift up my face to thee, my God: for our iniquities are increased over our head, and our trespass is grown up unto the heavens.” — Ezra 9:6

Academia still trying to please PC gods The entrenched regime of racial preferences in American academia is a fit subject for study by the nation’s top psychiatrists. It’s never OK to discriminate on the basis of race in American life, except when it is. Schools lionize the 1964 Civil Rights Act in their classrooms, and then violate Rich it in their Lowery a d m i s s i o n s offices. They obfusNational will Review cate, sneak around and lie, all to preserve their treasured preferences so they can make the admissions numbers look right -- regardless of the consequences. This system is bad for the moral fiber of academic institutions, bad for the ideal of race blindness in America, and bad, the latest research suggests, for the minorities supposedly benefiting. It is good only for salving the guilty, race-obsessed consciences of university administrators and appeasing the PC gods and the usual interest groups. The Supreme Court decided to let the dinosaur keep roaming the Earth,

although it tightened up the standards in its 7-1 ruling. The court said that racial discrimination is permissible in fostering educational diversity, but schools have to prove that such discrimination is narrowly tailored. In the majority opinion, Justice Anthony Kennedy wrote, “Strict scrutiny does not permit a court to accept a school’s assertion that its admissions process uses race in a permissible way without closely examining how the process works in practice.” No, it will require “a careful judicial inquiry.” In other words, the Supreme Court has spoken: If you are wondering if a given school meets the Supreme Court-approved standard, there’s an easy way to find out -- sue and spend years trying to find out. The answer, by the way, will probably change the next time the Supreme Court deigns to hear the issue and come up with its latest exquisitely nuanced test. In the real world, there is little doubt that racial preferences are a failure. In their judicious book “Mismatch,” Richard Sander and Stuart Taylor Jr. catalog the twisted effect of preferences on schools beholden to them: “The pervasive secrecy that veils the operation and ef-

fects of racial preferences even from most academics has led to deception, ostracism of truth-tellers, lack of accountability, and an unwillingness to face awkward facts and undertake needed reforms.” All this dishonesty might be understandable if it served some larger good. It doesn’t. Race preferences ensure that students are accepted into schools where they will have trouble competing. This is the “mismatch” of Sander and Taylor’s title, and does no one any favors. “Large racial preferences backfire,” Sander and Taylor write, “against many and, perhaps, most recipients, to the point that they learn less and are likely to be less self-confident than had they gone to less competitive but still quite good schools.” They note that “even though blacks are more likely to enter college than are whites with similar backgrounds, they will usually get much lower grades, rank toward the bottom of the class, and far more often drop out.” When racial preferences were ended in California by referendum in 1996, disaster was supposed to ensue. The New York Times reports that enrollment of

blacks and Hispanics in the University of California system dipped slightly from 4 percent and 15 percent; now the numbers are 4 percent and 25 percent. The state university has begun to reach down into middle schools to find promising students -- minority and nonminority alike -- and work to ensure that they are better-prepared. This is affirmative action worthy of the name, based on improving students rather than checking a box. It has begun to dawn on liberals that preferences are a clumsy and ineffectual social tool. In a New York Times column titled “The Liberals Against Affirmative Action,” David Leonhardt notes research showing that preferences don’t really help the poor. “In effect,” he writes, “poor and middle-income students are rejected, while others with the same scores and grades -- legacies, athletes and minorities, often from privileged backgrounds -are admitted.” Still, racial preferences rumble on, immune to logic or law.

Americans, Columnist on the other hand, prefer style over substance in stars, always picking pretty people, their ability to act almost incidental. On the rare occasion you get beauty and brains.

ally just thin, pretty people wearing eyeglasses. That’s so they can take off the glasses in the last five minutes, the ugly-duckling-toswan time of many sitcoms. James Gandolfini was a major American exception. And by “major” I don’t mean his 260-pound bulk. I mean his genius. Famous for his role as murdering mobster Tony Soprano, Gandolfini was a fine actor, an exceptional actor. His Tony Soprano could stumble down a suburban driveway to fetch the newspaper, rubbing the night before’s heinous acts from his sleepy eyes, and without uttering a word deliver an Emmy-worthy performance. I am not a mafia movie fan. Even the excellent “Godfather” trilogy was not high on my list. So when people kept telling me I’d like the violent, profane, mobster-driven, HBO soap opera “The Sopranos,” I had my doubts. It took watching about five minutes of the show to change my mind. The writing was excellent. The actors were, to a role, good.

And James Gandolfini as Tony Soprano was historic. The best thing about the show was its ability to mess with your mind, taking you to the edge of sympathy for characters without conscience, snatching you back at the end. There were no anti-heroes in the show, only brutal mobsters. Tony Soprano was a family man, of sorts, if you didn’t count his job and endless list of mistresses. In one episode Tony is dutifully escorting his smart high-school-age daughter to various colleges she is considering. He drops her at one ivy-covered stop and matter-of-factly goes to off an enemy who happens to

Obama offers plan to benefit climate WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama declared the debate over climate change and its causes obsolete Tuesday as he announced a wide-ranging plan to tackle pollution and prepare communities for global warming. In a major speech at Georgetown University, Obama warned Americans of the deep and disastrous effects of climate change, urging them to take action before it’s too late. “As a president, as a father and as an American, I’m here to say we need to act,â€? Obama said. Obama announced he was directing his administration to launch the first-ever federal regulations on heat-trapping gases emitted by new and existing power plants — “to put an end to the limitless dumping of carbon pollution.â€? Other aspects of the plan will boost renewable energy production on federal lands, increase efficiency standards and prepare communities to deal with higher temperatures. Â

Watchdog: IRS cards used for non-work things WASHINGTON — Poor oversight by the Internal Revenue Service allowed workers to use agency credit cards to buy wine for an expensive luncheon, dorky swag for managers’ meetings and, for one employee, romance novels and diet pills, an agency watchdog said Tuesday. Two IRS credit cards were used to buy online pornography, though the employees said the cards were stolen. One of the workers reported five agency credit cards lost or stolen. IRS employees used agency credit cards to make more than 273,000 purchases totaling nearly $108 million in 2010 and 2011, according to the report by the Treasury inspector general for tax administration. The vast majority of those purchases were legitimate, the report said. However, the report said the IRS has inadequate controls to prevent inappropriate purchases.

Court frees states from strict oversight WASHINGTON — A deeply divided Supreme Court threw out the most powerful part of the landmark Voting Rights Act on Tuesday, a decision deplored by the White House but cheered by mostly Southern states now free from nearly 50 years of intense federal oversight of their elections. Split along ideological and partisan lines, the justices voted 5-4 to strip the government of its most potent tool to stop voting bias — the requirement in the Voting Rights Act that all or parts of 15 states with a history of discrimination in voting, mainly in the South, get Washington’s approval before changing the way they hold elections. Chief Justice John Roberts, writing for a majority of conservative, Republican-appointed justices, said the law’s provision that determines which states are covered is unconstitutional because it relies on 40-year-old data and does not account for racial progress and other changes in U.S. society. The decision effectively puts an end to the advance approval requirement that has been used to open up polling places to minority voters in the nearly half century since it was first enacted in 1965. That is, unless Congress can come up with a new formula that Roberts said meets “current conditions� in the United States. That seems unlikely to happen any time soon. President Barack Obama, the nation’s first black chief executive, issued a statement saying he was “deeply disappointed� with the ruling and calling on Congress

Army to cut brigades at 10 bases by 2017 WASHINGTON — The Army will eliminate at least 12 combat brigades, relocate thousands of soldiers and cancel $400 million in construction projects as the first wave of federal budget cuts takes aim at military communities around the country. In a massive restructuring, Army leaders said Tuesday that they will slash the number of active duty combat brigades from 45 to 33, as the service moves forward with a longtime plan to cut the size of the service by 80,000. And they warned that more cuts — of as many as 100,000 more active duty, National Guard and Reserve soldiers — could be coming if Congress allows billions of dollars in automatic budget cuts to continue next year. The sweeping changes would eliminate brigades — which number from 3,500 to 5,000 troops — at 10 Army bases in the U.S. by 2017, including those in Texas, Kentucky, Georgia, Colorado, North Carolina, New York, Kansas and Washington. The Army will also cut thousands of other jobs across the service, including soldiers in units that support the brigades, and two brigades in Germany have already been scheduled for elimination. Gen. Ray Odierno, Army chief of staff, said one additional brigade will likely be cut, but no final decisions have been made. “I know in the local communities it will have its impact,� Odierno told reporters Tuesday. “But we’ve done our best to reach out to them so they understand what the impacts are. We’ve tried to make it as small an impact as possible for as many communities as we could.�

Woman charged in Maryland homicide ROCKVILLE, Md. — Montgomery County Police say a Mississippi woman has been charged with 1st-degree murder in the shooting of a man in his Silver Spring apartment. Law enforcement officers arrested 35-yearold Katrina Renee Ben Friday at her home in Silver Creek. She is being held in the Lawrence County, Miss., jail, pending extradition to Maryland. Ben is charged in the June 6, 2012 slaying of 34-year-old Eric Somuah. Officers found him dead of a gunshot wound to the head in his apartment. At that time, officers interviewed Ben, a neighbor who said she was in a romantic relationship with Somuah. The next day, a partially disassembled gun was found and determined to have characteristics from a spent shell casing recovered at Somuah’s apartment. Police say Ben bought the gun in 2004. Â

Charter advocates form association JACKSON — Groups that pushed the passage of Mississippi’s new charter school law are forming an association to promote and nurture the schools. The Mississippi Charter School Association’s creation was announced Tuesday at a meeting to encourage people who might be interested in

creating such schools to start organizing. The law takes effect Monday. It expands authority to create charter schools — public schools run by private groups that agree to meet certain standards in exchange for less regulation. Next up will be appointing a seven-member authorizing board to solicit and approve charter school applications. Gov. Phil Bryant and Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves each get three appointments, while the state superintendent of education gets one. The board would begin operations Sept. 1 and seek proposals for schools by Dec. 1. Â

Perkins sues over mayor election GREENWOOD — Sheriel Perkins is challenging the results of the June 4 Greenwood mayoral election. The Greenwood Commonwealth reports that Perkins is asking a Leflore County judge to declare her the winner of the election based on alleged voter fraud. Failing that, she wants a new election ordered. Perkins, a Democrat, lost to incumbent Carolyn McAdams by 206 votes in official returns in the race. Perkins argues there were illegal votes counted for McAdams and lawful votes that were not counted for her. McAdams, an independent, received 2,618 votes in the municipal general election, compared to Perkins’ 2,412. McAdams was

Sheriff challenges overtime limitations LUCEDALE — George County Sheriff Dean Howell is asking a judge to thrown out an ordinance limiting his use of overtime. The lawsuit, filed June 14 in circuit court, argues the board of supervisors has no jurisdiction to tell the sheriff how to run his office or allocate the work and duties to be performed by his deputies. The Mississippi Press reports that supervisors were told June 3 by county Comptroller Amye Havens that the sheriff’s department was more than $100,000 over budget through the second quarter. The news prompted supervisors to pass the overtime ordinance. Howell says his department is over budget, mostly due to overtime and fuel costs. The county has 30 days to respond to the lawsuit. Â

Sentences upheld in robbery, assault case MADISON — The state Court of Appeals has upheld the 30-year sentences given a Jackson man for armed robbery and aggravated assault in Madison County. Peter Grossley was convicted in Madison County in 2008 for his role in the holdup of the Northpark Discount Package store in Ridgeland on July 25, 2007. An exchanged gunfire with the owner occurred, but no one was injured. In his appeal, Grossley argued that the testimony of an accomplice in the robbery was full of inconsistencies. The Appeals Court, in Tuesday’s ruling, says while some of the accomplice’s testimony was contradictory, prosecutors had enough evidence to support a conviction, including the testimony of the store owner.

GREENWOOD — The state Board of Education has approved the Leflore County School District’s plan to get off probation. The Greenwood Commonwealth reports that the proposal was submitted by schools Superintendent Viola Williams McCaskill. Officials say the district will remain on probation until it shows it has complied with all mandatory state regulations. The corrective action plan is the first step and simply establishes defined time frames for the district to comply with state educational requirements. Department of Education officials are working with the district to bring it into compliance. After a February audit, the Mississippi Commission on School Accreditation placed the district on probation. The district was cited for violation of one accreditation policy dealing with timely and accurate reporting to the state agency and 52 process standards. Â

‘Little pitchers have big ears’ ... and eyes Funny, the bits and pieces you remember from your childhood. have Ryland I Bruhwiler more than half a dozColumnist en memories that are crystal clear from the year I was three years old. For instance, I remember peering into the crib in my parents’ bedroom that held that little brother. His outline was so soft, but he slept so hard. So deeply. A sleeping baby has such presence. We were living in a tiny, white frame house that year. Though the G.I. Bill was an enormous blessing for returning Korean vets, it didn’t cover Daddy’s college costs and pay the bills on a household with three kids and a wife, so my dad sold

I just had one of those moments. Opened a new jar of Smucker’s apricot jam for breakfast. Dabbed some jam onto my toast, then licked off the spoon -- and was three years old again standing beside my mom as she fed my baby brother -- and let me have a spoonful from his jar of Gerber’s baby food. Peach. I remember its cheerful orange color. And thinking how crazy I was about peach baby food. I wanted a whole jar to myself so I could enjoy that sweet-tart tang spreading itself across the tongue again and again. Why do I remember this little moment? Was it the first time I became conscious of the fact I’m wild about tastes that are both sweet and sour? Still am. Plums. Shiraz. Key lime pie ....

Britannica Encyclopedias door to door. I’d bet it was his mom who bought the set I’d spread out on the floor, absorbed by the photographs in stark black and white. I remember looking a long, long time -- and often -- into the unfathomable faces of the beautiful big cats. Lion. Leopard. Lynx. And their diminutive cousins like the tabby and the manx. (No tail!) But when I reached the insects, I’d turn the pages at the tiptop corners to be sure I didn’t accidentally touch those prickly legs and skittery feelers. Those clackety shells. Those bugly eyes. That was the year of the Easter chick. It didn’t last long, poor thing. I remember my parents’ awkwardly explaining about the neighbors’ cat who’d come prowling in the night. Another first: the fragility of life. And

life’s injustices. I remember sitting on my grandfather’s lap as he wiggled my toes one by one and recited, “This little pig went to market ...” and so on, all the way down to the little pig who “cried wee-wee-wee all the way home.” I thought that was the height of hilarity. I still love that silly rhyme. But when my beloved Aunt Lois brought a boyfriend to meet us, I hid behind my dad’s chair. I didn’t like him. Would not even say his name. I called him “Man.” (Eventually they married, and, years on down the road, divorced. Auntie Lois should have paid attention.) My poor parents. This was the year I climbed up onto the bathroom sink from the toilet, opened the medicine cabinet, and ingested a bottle of Mommy’s pills. Can’t re-

call what they were for and don’t remember a thing about the subsequent race to the hospital or the pumping out of my stomach. (I’m just as glad I don’t.) But I do remember admiring those big, purple capsules. They must have had little or no taste, so why I ate a bottle’s worth, I cannot imagine. What I vividly recall is walking barefoot on the road that led to our house. The sharp, brown gravel. The hot and sunny day. And a searing pain that just about undid me. Worse was raising my small foot and beholding a nasty, good-sized nail stuck right into the middle of my sole. I sobbed as I painfully, haltingl´y hobbled -- all the way home -- so Mommy could pull it out. Don’t remember what must have been another run to the family doctor

for a tetanus injection. No wonder Daddy went door to door lugging those heavy sets of encyclopedias, trying to make a few extra bucks. But this was also the year of one of my dearest memories. Sitting at the kitchen table looking through the window at a dark sky streaked with lightning. Then my father lifting me up and strolling outside into the yard so I could admire the grandeur and the beauty from the safety of his strong arms. I’ve loved the crash and roll of a good thunderstorm ever since. Yes, the more we change, the more we stay the same.

Proactive steps reduce risk of termite damage over the state and are the most common species. Southeastern drywood termites are the least common type and are found in the extreme southern counties of the state, mostly along US Highway 90. Formosan termites are an invasive species found in the southern half of the state. “Every wooden structure in Mississippi is at risk of attack by termites,” Layton said. “For most homeowners, it is not a matter of if termites will enter their home, but when.” Layton suggested homeowners throughout Mississippi keep a termite contract with a pest control company. “By their nature, termites are very difficult to detect, and by the time homeowners see outward signs of an infestation, there could be thousands of dollars of damage,” he said. Initial termite treatment costs and annual renewal fees depend on the size of the home and type of foundation. Treatment costs can range from approxi-


JACKSON — Seasonal termite swarms cause Blake Layton’s phone to ring off the hook this time of year. Layton, a Mississippi State University Extension Service entomologist, said all three major termite species in Mississippi mate from January through June in hopes of forming a new colony. Mating season is one of the rare times people see the secretive insects. Sightings often spark suspicion of an infestation. “Termites swarm every year during this time. It’s normal. It’s what termites are supposed to do,” said Layton, who is also an Extension professor in MSU’s Department of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology, Entomology and Plant Pathology. “Just because termites are swarming near a structure does not mean there are termites in the structure.” That said, all Mississippians should take the threat of termites seriously. Eastern subterranean termites live all

mately $800 to several thousand dollars. Annual renewal fees can range from about $80 to several hundred dollars, Layton said. “Initially it can be expensive, but treating a home before there is an infestation is much less expensive than having to correct the damage a colony of termites could cause over a year or two,” he said. Layton said contract terms vary depending on the company, and homeowners should read the contract carefully before signing it to make sure they understand the terms. Some companies cover termite damage done when the home is under contract, and others do not. Formosan termites, which prefer warm, moist climates, pose additional risk to homeowners in the southern half of the state. Established colonies exist in 25 counties and continue to spread as far north as the Jackson area, Layton said. Compared to Eastern subterranean termites,


Formosan termites form larger colonies and are more aggressive feeders. Individual Formosan termites are also larger. All three factors allow them to consume more wood in less time than a colony of Eastern subterranean termites could. Christian Stephenson, MSU Extension Service county coordinator in Hancock County, said his office receives several calls about termites each spring. “A lot of our calls are from people who find dead termites inside their house,” he said. “Formosan termites swarm at night, and they are attracted to light. Sometimes they find their way inside. If people find 15 or 20 in their living room one morning, they think they must have an infestation. But that usually isn’t’ the case.” Stephenson said although Formosan termites can do more damage in a shorter amount of time than the state’s native species, homeowners shouldn’t panic if they suspect an infestation. “If the home is under

contract with a pest control company, call them and have them do an inspection,” Stephenson said. “If the home is not under contract, it is okay to take a few weeks to get bids from several pest control companies and make the best decision for the individual situation. “Professional monitoring and periodic treatments are extremely important,” Stephenson said. “But homeowners also need to take additional steps to reduce their risk of termites entering the home.” These factors can increase the probability that termites will enter structure: • allowing soil, mulch, and leaves to get too high around the foundation;

The last estimate, in May, put U.S. economic growth at a modest 2.4 percent annual rate for the January-March period.

Every few years, the video game industry hits the reset button. Microsoft and Sony plan to roll out new versions of their Xbox and PlayStation game consoles before the holiday shopping season. The arrival of the next generation of gaming systems means the industry is in a transition period. New consoles can boost sales for video game publishers like Activision Blizzard and Electronic Arts.

But don’t expect an immediate payoff because when people buy a new console that cuts into game sales. Game makers also typically incur higher development and operating costs as they transition to the new game systems. But eventually, game publishers can look forward to better profit margins, says Morningstar analyst Carr Lanphier. Several video game stocks have risen sharply this year, but here are three that financial analysts still find attractive.






$13.78 $15.1 billion 31%







A publisher of video games for PCs, game consoles, mobile devices and other platforms. Activision boosted revenue even during the recession and has continued to since. Among its most successful titles: “World of Warcraft,� “Diablo� and “Call of Duty.�

Electronic Arts (EA) $21.78 $6.6 billion 50% 13%






A publisher and distributor of video games. Electronic Arts is the largest maker of games based on pro sports, with titles such as “Madden NFL.� The company recently renewed contracts with most of its major sporting league partners.

Reports surfaced earlier this month suggesting China might approve some genetically modified soybeans for importation. That could be a boon for Monsanto, which sells seeds that are genetically modified to resist insects. Investors will be listening after the company reports fiscal third-quarter earnings for any word on China.

Winter wheat harvest is delayed but strong BY KERI COLLINS LEWIS MSU Ag Communications

STARKVILLE — Producers are bringing in Mississippi’s amber waves of grain later than usual, but sunny weather has allowed them to make strong progress on the winter wheat harvest during the last two weeks. Wet conditions that began in February and cooler-than-normal conditions in March, April and most of May delayed the crop’s maturity. Erick Larson, small grains agronomist with the Mississippi State University Extension Service, said the prolonged spring may have helped farmers with the timing of their management inputs, but now they are rushing to complete the wheat harvest. “Farmers have a backlog of tasks to catch up on,” Larson said. “Our spring was backed up so much that many are busy with management practices on other crops. Some wheat may not be harvested as quickly as I wish it could be.” The U.S. Department of Agriculture’s Crop Progress and Condition Report for the week ending June 16 estimated that producers harvested more than 45 percent of the winter wheat crop last week. The crop is 56 percent harvested for the season, down from the five-year average of 90 percent. Letting wheat sit in the

field can be risky, especially with the scattered showers popping up daily across the state. Unlike other grains, wheat is very exposed to the elements, the grains are relatively small and the heads are fragile. “If wheat is rained on when it’s mature, the quality of the grain can quickly deteriorate,” Larson said. “Producers with fields where harvest is delayed risk losing test weight and general grain quality.” Rain and wind can also cause lodging and shattering, which result in harvest losses. Though the harvest is behind schedule, yields are better than expected. Mississippi’s five-year average is 56 bushels per acre. “Our farmers have a good chance to wrap up the harvest this week since we’re having pretty weather,” said Lester Stephens, Extension agronomic crops agent in Washington County. “Yields have been anywhere from 20 bushels per acre to the upper 80s. We hope we can get our usual average of around 60 bushels per acre. We were wet for so long, many growers feel fortunate to end up with such good yields.” Brian Williams, an agricultural economist with MSU’s Extension Service, said prices took a hit this week with the news of better yields. “Prices have been struggling since the first

part of June, and the decline is somewhat indicative of the better-thanexpected yields being built into the market,” he said. “July wheat futures have been trading in the $6.80 to $7 per bushel range, with prices in Mississippi ranging from $6.59 to $6.81 per bushel at most locations. Feed demand has been a major factor in keeping wheat prices strong. “With corn prices remaining strong throughout the winter, wheat has been an attractive alternative,” Williams said. “Wheat exports have been strong over the last couple of weeks, and U.S. wheat is selling at a premium to the world market.” Mississippi’s wheat harvest is ahead of the nation’s in both quality and harvest progress. “Mississippi’s wheat conditions are faring much better than the nation’s, with 65 percent of our wheat crop rated as good to excellent, compared to 31 percent with that rating nationally,” Williams said. “The U.S. wheat crop is 11 percent harvested as of June 17, well behind the five-year average of 25 percent at this time of the year.” Mississippi’s producers planted 420,000 acres in winter wheat this season, the second highest planting since 1990. In 2012, wheat ranked ninth in the list of Mississippi’s agricultural commodities, with a $134 million production value.

Mississippi producers are harvesting winter wheat, such as this planted at Mississippi State University’s R.R. Foil Plant Science Research Facility, later than usual because of the late, wet spring, but overall yields are better than expected.

American Legion unveils web page dedicated to honor, remembrance Special to the Daily Corinthian

The American Legion – the nation’s largest veterans service organization – has launched a new interactive web page that provides a way for veterans and their families to keep the memories of military sacrifice alive. The new web page -packed with stories, photos and videos, as well as a database -- is now available at www.legion. org/honor. “All veterans and military families are encouraged to share stories of

their time in uniform and/or their family’s military legacy.

Tradition of ringing bells is revived for Fourth of July DEAR ABBY: President John F. Kennedy proclaimed the ringing of the bells nationwide on Independence Day, July 4, 1963, with the words, “Let’s ring freedom bells!” I was a White House special projects aide at the time, and I recall vividly how exciting it was when bells rang throughout the nation. I’m writing now to ask your help in getting the American people to ring bells again on this Fourth of July, and each Fourth every year from now on. As a grateful American, I hope to resurrect this proud tradition. Let us tune in with each other and our history by ringing bells at 2 p.m. this July 4 in honor of the 237th anniversary of our independence. Encourage churches and civic buildings with bells to ring them. It doesn’t cost any money to do it. The first groups to support this national effort include baseball teams, the National Cartoonists Society, and the Iron Workers, Firefighters and Sheet Metal Workers unions along with other AFL-CIO affiliates. As we celebrate our freedom, let us also honor the lives of those who sacrificed theirs for our precious liberty. Your millions of readers can help “let freedom ring.” -- CARMELLA LaSPADA, FOUNDER, NO GREATER LOVE DEAR CARMELLA: I’m pleased to join you in this national effort. Readers, engraved on the Liberty

Bell are the words, “Proclaim Liberty throughout all the Land unto all the inhabitants thereof.” So let’s do it. any Abigail Shake bell you hapVan Buren pen to have. Our freedom Dear Abby is something to celebrate! D E A R ABBY: I have been dating a married man for more than a year. He’s my boss. “Gerry” has two kids with his wife and two more outside the marriage. I have never been the type to date someone else’s man, nor do I approve of it. I know that what I’m doing is wrong, but at times it just feels so right. We do everything together and enjoy each other’s company. Is it possible for him to be in love with us both? Why do men cheat? -- THE OTHER WOMAN IN ALABAMA DEAR OTHER WOMAN: What you’re doing with your boss may “feel” right, but as you clearly stated, it is wrong. It isn’t fair to his wife, or to you or his children. While the two of you are doing “everything” together, he is cheating all four of his children of time that should be spent being a parent to them.

As to whether this man is in love with you and his wife, frankly I doubt it. He appears to be more in love with himself. Men cheat for a variety of reasons, and more often than not, it’s more about the cheater than the spouse. Consider that fact carefully before wasting any more precious years with him, because you will never get them back. DEAR ABBY: My husband needed a car to replace the old one, so he insisted on a manual transmission, which I don’t know how to drive. Do you think that’s fair?

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). If you create a habit, you no longer have to use your precious and limited daily reserves of willpower to execute that activity. Do it consistently until it becomes a natural process for you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). Acting on behalf of another person, you will meet many interesting people. You’re a true friend, and you will try to connect your loved ones with the people who will be good for them to know. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Timing is crucial to your success. It’s not something you have to sense, it’s simple science. You know when you feel most alert, and you’ll make those times count by doing your hardest work then. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The people you love will try your patience. The reason they are able to do this so effectively is that they are the people you love. Your caring makes you vulnerable, and you wouldn’t have it any other way.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). There is such a thing as too much inspiration. Ultimately what inspires and motivates you the most isn’t people trying to inspire and motivate you, it’s you taking action and enjoying it. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You require an overview perspective that will help you understand where you are. If only life were like those signs at the mall that read, “You are here.” A mentor can act as an objective observer and shed some light on this. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your success is not a function of ability or talent. You have plenty of both, but that is not the magic ingredient. You are competent and work hard, and that is the real reason you will succeed. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Don’t attempt to wing it today. Although your instincts are terrific, you will still do best when you have a structure that supports your goals. Turn to what has worked before. It will work again.

SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Does your soul have an agenda that your mind doesn’t know about? Today’s evidence strongly indicates that this is the case. What you want doesn’t make sense, but you can’t change that you want it. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Simplify, prioritize and eliminate what’s been cluttering your view. Once you define your values, much of what you prize will be represented in the physical world. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). Meet your own needs. Once your needs are met, you won’t feel the need to grip the controls of life so tightly. You’ll be still and centered while those around you are caught up in a swirl of high drama. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You’ll be recognized for an achievement. This won’t feel the way you anticipated it would. Consider why this is so. Perhaps you are being called to a different kind of achievement.

Back in 2007, his sophomore season in the Sprint Cup Series, Martin Truex Jr. looked like the circuit’s next big winner. Driving for Dale Earnhardt Inc., he won back-to-back Nationwide Series championships in 2004 and 2005, and had two top-five finishes, including a second-place finish at Homestead, and five top-10s in his rookie Cup season of 2006.

While Martin Truex Jr. spent much of Sunday’s race at Sonoma cruising at the head of the pack, leading 51 of 110 laps, including the final 28, two drivers behind him were putting on a show, charging through the field. Jeff Gordon, a five-time winner at Sonoma, overcame an early-race penalty for pitting too soon after the caution flag waved, and finished second. His finish allowed him to move up three spots in the points standings, to 13th, with 10 races to run before the start of the Chase for the Sprint Cup. “This team has been faced with a lot worse adversity than that,” Gordon said of his setback on Sunday. “Luckily, we had a fast race car and Jeff Gordon captures second stayed with our pit strategy, and things went our way.

I didn’t hit my tachometer right, and I was speeding both times. I just put myself in a position that was poor, trying to get too much on pit road. But man, this Furniture Row Chevy was fast.” He also gained threes spots in the driver standings, from 20th to 17th, and is 28 points out of 10th place, the final spot guaranteed a Chase berth after the 26-race regular season.

Daytona International Speedway, the 54-year-old flagship track of NASCAR, has fallen behind many of the sport’s other tracks when it comes to fan amenities. But that’s about to change. Plans for an overhaul costing between $375 million and $400 million were announced last week. The project, which will focus on the facilities along the frontstretch of the 2.5-mile track, are set to begin immediately after the Coke Zero 400 in July and be completed by Speedweeks 2016. Among the changes are five new fan entrances along International Speedway Boulevard. Each of those entrances will lead to a series of elevators and escalators that will take fans to three different concourse levels, each with a 300-foot “neighborhood” that will allow fans to socialize without missing the action on the track. All existing frontstretch grandstand seats will be replaced with wider seats, something that has already occurred at many tracks. When the project is complete, the track’s seating capacity will be about 101,000, down from the current 146,000. “We are truly creating history with this unprecedented endeavor,” Lesa France Kennedy, CEO of Daytona’s parent company, International Speedway Corp., said in announcing the project. “I commend the board’s decision to move forward on our plan to redevelop the company’s signature motorsports facility, thereby shaping the vision of Daytona for the next 50 years “This significant private investment is a strategic use of our capital that will ensure the long-term viability of the iconic speedway, and will contribute favorably to the company’s revenues, as well as to our community and the sport as a whole.” So far, there has been no indication that taxpayer dollars will be spent on the project.

Allmendinger makes the most of his ‘second chance’ A.J. Allmendinger continues to make the most of the second chance given him by car owner Roger Penske. Last year, Allmendinger was fired as driver of A.J. Allmendinger in Penske’s No. 22 Sprint Cup car after Victory Lane at Road he failed a NASCAR America. drug test. But Penske gave Allmendinger another opportunity to race, hiring him to run a limited schedule in both the IndyCar series and in NASCAR after he completed the sanctioning body’s “Road to Recovery” program. Allmendinger has maintained that he failed the drug test because he took a pill that a friend gave him, and it turned out to be Adderall. Allmendinger raced for Penske in the Indianapolis 500, starting fifth, leading 23 laps and finishing seventh. Then last Saturday, he drove Penske’s No. 22 Ford to victory in NASCAR’s Nationwide Series race at Road America. It was his first major NASCAR victory, but his second at Road America, the first coming in a Champ Car race on the 4.048-mile road course in Elkhart Lake, Wis., in 2006. On Saturday, Allmendinger started on the pole and led four times for 29 laps. He took the lead for good from eventual runner-up Justin Allgaier on Lap 43 of a scheduled 50 laps. “It’s understated what Roger [Penske] has done for me,” Allmendinger told reporters after the race. “All these guys at Penske Racing gave me another chance, not only to drive Indy cars, but get in this Nationwide car.” John Harrelson/Getty Images for NASCAR

Dale Earnhardt Jr.’s 12-year-old niece, Karsyn Elledge, was in Victory Lane at Sonoma Raceway last weekend, but not because she won a race there. Elledge was Karsyn Elledge with there to talk her Mini Outlaw car about her summer racing plans. Elledge, the daughter of longtime Sprint Cup crew chief Jimmy Elledge, and Kelley Earnhardt-Miller, is driving a Mini Outlaw car carrying her late grandfather Dale Earnhardt’s No. 3 and sponsored by Nickelodeon. Elledge’s car is painted to represent the Sandy Cheeks character from Nickelodeon’s “SpongeBob SquarePants” children’s show. Now in her fourth season of racing, Elledge has five wins in eight Box Stock starts so far this year. She told reporters at Sonoma that her desire to race comes naturally. “My family’s history in racing is something I’m very proud of,” said Elledge. “Both my mom and dad were born into racing families, and they were very passionate about the sport. They’ve passed that passion on to me.”

to drive their team rigs to the tracks, then climb in their race cars and compete, before doing it all over again the next week. Many drivers in the ARCA series today also drive their team haulers, but it rarely happens in Sprint Cup anymore. David Ragan, driver of the No. 34 Ford in the Sprint Cup Series, got a taste of that experience last week as he co-drove his team’s hauler from its home base near Charlotte, N.C., to Sonoma Raceway in California, some 2,700 miles away. For Ragan, 27, the trip wasn’t a necessity as it was for independent racers back in the day or ARCA racers today. It was a product of his lifelong love of all things mechanical, including the giant, 80-foot, 80,000-pound rolling rigs. “I’ve always liked big trucks,” Ragan said via his hands-free phone as he drove through Wyoming last Wednesday. “I got my CDL [commercial driver’s license] because I’m cheap and didn’t want to have to pay somebody to drive the hauler for my Late Model team. “I figured this trip would be an adventure and also a good chance to get to spend some time with our regular truck driver, Mike Smith, and get a better idea of what his job is like.” Ragan, a native of Unadilla, Ga., said he enjoyed the communication with other truck drivers on the citizens band radio and in person with the people he met in truck stops.

There’s a weigh station coming up in a couple of miles, and I need to act like I know what I’m doing.” Ragan said later that he made it through the weigh station, and on to Sonoma, with no issues, logging a little over 1,500 miles behind the wheel. He went on to finish 33rd at Sonoma. But Smith, the team’s regular truck driver, had to make the return trip without his new co-driver. Ragan planned to take a flight home.

UCLA wins championship 8-0 BY ERIC OLSON Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. — UCLA’s offense showed up this time, which meant Mississippi State never had a chance. Eric Filia drove in a careerhigh five runs, Nick Vander Tuig limited Mississippi State to five hits in eight innings, and UCLA won its first national championship in baseball with an 8-0 victory Tuesday night. The Bruins (49-17) completed a two-game sweep in the College World Series finals and ended the season with 11 straight wins. The national title is UCLA’s NCAA-record 109th in team sports. “They had a great year,”

UCLA coach John Savage said, “and it was one of those situations where it was our time.” Adam Plutko, the Bruins’ No. 1 starter, was named the CWS’ Most Outstanding Player. He beat LSU in the Bruins’ first game and was the winner in Game 1 of the finals. He allowed two runs in 13 innings. Vander Tuig held off the Bulldogs (51-20) when they threatened in the fourth, fifth and eighth innings and recorded his fourth win in the NCAA tournament. Vander Tuig (144) struck out six and walked one. David Berg pitched the ninth. Filia produced runs with a sacrifice fly, squeeze bunt and

two base hits as the Bruins collected 12 hits and scored their most runs in 18 games. “I thrive on this, absolutely,” Filia said. “We just stayed with our approach. We stayed small and barreled balls up.” Bulldogs starter Luis Pollorena (6-4) lasted one inning. Jonathan Holder, the Bulldogs’ closer, came on with one out in the fourth inning and went the rest of the way. UCLA allowed four runs in five games to set a CWS record for fewest in the metal-bat era that started in 1974. The Bruins’ .227 batting average in the CWS also was the lowest since teams went away from wood bats. The Bruins’

19 runs in five games were the fewest by a champion since the CWS went to eight teams in 1950. “It was a team effort all the way through,” Savage said. “It was guys believing in each other and being great teammates. People didn’t believe in us all season long. We kept battling, and it’s a team win.” After Arizona’s title last year, the Pac-12 has now won two straight and has 17 in all in baseball, most of any conference.

Leech: Is moving in CWS fences worth cost? BY ERIC OLSON Associated Press 

OMAHA, Neb. — The lack of offense, most notably home runs, has been a major topic of conversation among fans and media at the College World Series. The NCAA has noticed, too, but no immediate changes are planned in an attempt bring up the numbers. There were three home runs hit in the first 13 games, and some have suggested that the fences should be moved in at TD Ameritrade Park. “All of that costs money, and we would do that why? So there would be a few more home runs? Is it worth it?” said Damani Leech, the NCAA’s director of championships and alliances. “We’ve only had three home runs, yet we’ve had the highest average attendance in the history of the College World Series.” Leech officially takes over as lead administrator for the CWS on July 1, replacing the retiring Dennis Poppe.

Leech said in an interview Tuesday that the offensive issues at the CWS coincide with the drop in offense throughout all of college baseball since the dialedback metal bats were put into play in 2011. According to the NCAA’s midseason statistics report, the latest data available, the per-team average for home runs was about one every three games. The year before the new bat specifications, the average was about one a game. Leech noted that there were nine home runs hit at TD Ameritrade Park in its first year, 2011, and there were 10 last year. “Were folks comfortable with that number?” Leech said. “That’s the kind of conversation we’ve got to have, that the baseball committee’s got to have. Are we comfortable with the kind of baseball that’s being played here at our premier national event?” The fences at TD Ameritrade Park are 335 feet down

the lines, 375 in the power alleys and 408 to center field. Those are identical to the dimensions at the old Rosenblatt Stadium, where there were an average of 33 home runs over the last 10 years the CWS was played there. Not only have the bats changed since the CWS was played at Rosenblatt, so has the field orientation. Batters faced the northeast at Rosenblatt and were able to launch flies into the prevailing south wind most days. They face the southeast at TD Ameritrade, meaning they usually hit into the wind. Leech said he spoke with the agency that operates the stadium to see if they could give him an estimate for what it would cost to move in the fences. They couldn’t come up with a figure, but they pointed out there would be significant costs associated with addressing the angles of some of the outfield seats and having to make changes in grading.

The batting average over the three years the CWS has been played at TD Ameritrade is .236. Last year’s .234 was the lowest since it was .227 in 1974, the year metal bats replaced wood. Researchers from Washington State University, representatives of Rawlings Sporting Goods and American Baseball Coaches Association executive director Dave Keilitz met with NCAA officials on Tuesday to discuss possible changes to the ball. Leech said the consensus is there will be no change to the core of the ball, but they did discuss the possibility of switching from the raisedseam ball to the flat-seam ball used in professional baseball. No change in the ball could take effect until 2015, which is at the end of the current moratorium on baseball rule changes. “Generally people don’t want to see us go back to the days of 21-run games,” Leech said.

sion of this season revealed plenty in 17 minutes, including that he’s already feeling an itch to get back on the basketball court after just a few days off, that he’ll stop at nothing to give longtime girlfriend Savannah Brinson anything she wants on their wedding day in a couple months, and that he’s making no secret of his hope that the Heat bring back at least the majority of this year’s championship roster. The most interesting news, however, was when he spoke of his short- and long-term plans. First, he’s vowing to come back better next season, which is no small promise from someone with four MVP awards, two Finals MVP awards and who carries the tag of “best player in the world.” And then next sum-

mer, it certainly sounds as if he’s going to give the prospects of staying in Miami a good, long look. “This is what we came here for, so that would be the ultimate,” James said. “But you can never ... I don’t know, life changes, things happen, and we have to be prepared for that. But this is what we all want to be here for, that’s to be able to compete for a championship each and every year. And if we can do that, then it’d be awesome.” James scored 37 points in Game 7 of the NBA Finals against the San Antonio Spurs, carrying the Heat to their second straight championship in a season where he picked up his fourth MVP award. He’s gotten to the championship series in all

three of his seasons with Miami, falling to Dallas in 2011, then beating Oklahoma City last season and the Spurs this year. The team gathered for physicals and a quick meeting on Tuesday, and now begins the process of scattering for vacation and other business. James will make his annual trip with Nike to China next month, not long after Wade does some business there. And already, James sounds like he’s missing the group that he spent the past nine months with. “It’s like, ‘Damn, I wish we could come back in the locker room, have another practice, take another flight, have another bus ride with

those 15 guys,’” James said. “That’s what it’s all about. You miss the guys throughout the summer. I know my family probably doesn’t want to hear that, but it’s the truth.” It was not a Finals without speed bumps for James, who failed to score 20 points in any of the first three games against the Spurs. And after Miami lost Game 5 in San Antonio, James had to prepare without one of his most faithful sounding boards. Maverick Carter, James’ longtime friend and perhaps his most trusted confidant, wouldn’t talk with him for days after Game 5, other than challenging him by saying that great players have to be great in the biggest moments. James responded with 32 points, 10 rebounds and 11 assists in Game 6, then the 37-point outburst in Game 7. “That’s why I like the guys around me, off the court,” James said. “It’s not just a bed of roses with us. They’ve been around me too long to allow me to be careless or not stepping up to the plate at the highest level, not in basketball but in everything.” The Heat are expected to announce by Sunday that they will pick up an option on point guard Mario Chalmers, one of three potentially departing players — Ray Allen and Chris Andersen being the others — identified by James on Tuesday as being “huge parts of our team.” James, who was completely exhausted after Game 7, said he’s already feeling rejuvenated physically and is eager to get back to work, which may not be great news for opponents.

The Bulldogs called on their closer, Jonathan Holder, with one out in the fourth after Cody Regis singled in another run. Holder hit Carroll to load the bases, and another sacrifice fly made it 5-0.



straight Southeastern Conference team to make it to the finals. Vander Tuig, who won his fourth straight postseason start, gave up just one earned run in 21 1-3 innings over his last three starts. The Bruins won the title in their third CWS appearance in four years and fifth all-time. They had made it to the finals in 2010 and were swept by South Carolina. Last year they went 1-2 in Omaha. This season they finished third in the Pac-12, behind Oregon State and Oregon, and then got hot in the postseason. They made magic with an offense that started Tuesday 264th out of 296 teams in batting (.247) and 215th in scoring (4.7 runs per game), but among the national leaders in sacrifices, walks and hit batsmen. They won three straight at home in regionals and went on the road to upset No. 5 national seed Cal State Fullerton in a two-

game super regional. Once they got to Omaha, the Bruins made themselves at home in spacious TD Ameritrade Park. UCLA produced just enough offense to support its superb pitching and defense in bracket play, and again in Game 1 of the finals. The pitching and defense showed up again in Game 2, and this time so did the offense.

“We’ve been capable all season long,” Savage said. “We have good players. I said that all along. They started to believe, and they used the whole field. Fortunately, we had some hits tonight.” UCLA was up three runs early — a lead that has been insurmountable for every team in this year’s CWS. The Bruins, as usual, were creative and opportunistic. They used a hit bats-

‘I Am Legend’ author Matheson dies at 87 The Associated Press

LOS ANGELES — Richard Matheson, the prolific sci-fi and fantasy writer whose “I Am Legend” and “The Shrinking Man” were transformed into films, has died. He was 87. A spokesman for the Academy of Science Fiction, Fantasy and Horror Films said Matheson died Sunday in Los Angeles. No other details were provided. With a career spanning more than 60 years, Matheson crafted stories that deftly transitioned from the page to both the big and small screens. Several of his works were

adapted into films, including 1953’s “Hell House,” 1956’s “The Shrinking Man,” 1958’s “A Stir of Echoes” and 1978’s “What Dreams May Come.” Matheson’s 1954 sci-fi vampire novel “I Am Legend” inspired three different film adaptations: 1964’s “The Last Man on Earth” starring Vincent Price, 1971’s “Omega Man” starring Charlton Heston and 2007’s “I Am Legend” starring Will Smith. Matheson was also responsible for writing several episodes of “The Twilight Zone,” as well as editions of “The Al-

fred Hitchcock Hour,” ‘‘Rod Serling’s Night Gallery,” ‘‘The Martian Chronicles” and “Amazing Stories.” His “Twilight Zone” installments included “Nightmare at 20,000 Feet,” which featured William Shatner as an airplane passenger who spots a creature on a plane’s wing, as well as “Steel,” which inspired the 2011 film “Real Steel” starring Hugh Jackman. “I loved Richard Matheson’s writing, and it was a huge honor getting to adapt his story ‘Button, Button’ into a film,” posted “Donnie Darko” and

“The Box” director Richard Kelly on Twitter on Monday. Matheson influenced several generations of storytellers. Among them were Stephen King, who dedicated his 2006 novel “Cell” to Matheson, and Steven Spielberg, whose first feature-length film was the made-for-TV movie “Duel,” based on the Matheson short story of the same name. “Richard Matheson’s ironic and iconic imagination created seminal science-fiction stories and gave me my first break when he wrote the short

story and screenplay for ‘Duel,’” said Spielberg in a statement. “His ‘Twilight Zones’ were among my favorites, and he recently worked with us on ‘Real Steel.’ For me, he is in the same category as (Ray) Bradbury and (Isaac) Asimov.” Matheson was scheduled to receive the visionary award at the Academy of Science Fiction, Horror and Fantasy Films’ Saturn Awards on Wednesday. The organization said the award will be presented posthumously and the 39th annual ceremony would be dedicated

to Matheson. “We are heartbroken to lose a writer of towering talent, unlimited imagination and unparalleled inspiration,” said Robert Holguin, the academy’s president. “Richard was a genius whose visions helped bring legitimacy and critical acclaim to science fiction and fantasy. He was also a longtime supporter of the academy, and everyone associated with the Saturn Awards feels emptier today to learn of this enormous loss.” Matheson is survived by his wife and four children.

Republicans divided on immigration; House uncertain The Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Senate Republicans are split over the immigration bill steaming toward approval at week’s end, a divide that renders the ultimate fate of White House-backed legislation unpredictable in the House and complicates the party’s ability to broaden its appeal among Hispanic voters. To some Republicans, the strength of Senate GOP support for the bill is all but irrelevant to its prospects in the House. Conservatives there hold a majority and generally oppose a core provision in the Senate measure, a pathway to citizenship for immigrants living in the United States illegally. Any such impact is “greatly overrated,” said Missouri Sen. Roy Blunt, who previously served as chief vote counter for House Republicans. But Rep. Paul Ryan, R-Wis., offered a different view. A Senate vote on Monday to toughen border security with thousands of new agents and billions of dollars in technology “obviously makes final legislation more likely,” the party’s 2012 vice presidential nominee said on CBS. One prominent Democrat, Sen. Chuck Schumer of New York, also says

House sentiment can be changed, particularly through the addition of strong border security measures of the kind that resulted from negotiations with previously uncommitted Republicans. “I believe a large bipartisan vote will wake up our colleagues ... in the House,” Schumer said shortly before the Senate inserted a requirement for 20,000 new Border Patrol agents and a total of 700 miles of fencing along the border with Mexico. “Hopefully, as congressmen look how their senators voted, they will be influenced by it.” In the key Senate showdown so far, 15 Republicans voted to advance the legislation that toughens border security at the same time it creates a chance at citizenship for 11 million immigrants living in the United States illegally. Another 27 voted to keep the bill bottled up. Republicans who voted to block the legislation generally did so after saying it would not deliver on its promise of operational control of the border. “When you look at it, it doesn’t, and they know it,” Sen. Jeff Sessions, R-Ala., said of the bill’s backers, who quickly dis-

puted the charge. A political pattern emerged, as well. Among Republicans who are seeking a new term next year and as a result face the risk of a primary challenge, only three voted with supporters of the measure. Eight did not, a group that includes the party’s two top leaders in the Senate, Mitch McConnell of Kentucky and John Cornyn of Texas, as well as Sessions, who has been one of the bill’s principal opponents across three weeks of debate. While party leaders long have looked to immigration legislation as a way to broaden appeal among Hispanic voters, individual members of Congress report a different perspective. “It’s hard to argue with the polling they’ve been getting from the national level,” Texas Republican Rep. Kenny Marchant said recently, referring to polls that show support for border security along with legalization. Yet in his own district in the suburbs west of Dallas, he said, proposals along the lines of the Senate bill are “very unpopular.” The party’s potential presidential contenders also are split, likely a harbinger of a struggle in

the campaign for the 2016 nomination. Two of them, Sens. Rand Paul of Kentucky and Ted Cruz of Texas, oppose the legislation. For his part, Cruz took a verbal poke at fellow Republicans in remarks on the Senate floor on Monday, saying that some senators in each parties “very much want a fig leaf” on border security to justify a vote for the measure. Yet one Republican presidential hopeful, Sen. Marco Rubio of Florida, is a member of the so-called Gang of Eight, a bipartisan group that helped draft the bill. Among its provisions are several that impose conditions on immigrants seeking legal status, including payment of fines, pay outstanding taxes and undergo a background check. In recent months, Rubio has sought to reorder the political circumstances rhetorically, asserting that the status quo amounts to “de facto amnesty” for those in the country illegally since it is unlikely they will be forced to leave. The phrasing marks an attempt to neutralize longtime claims that legalization confers amnesty. Increasing numbers of Republicans now employ

similar rhetoric. Among the unknowns is how much impact Rubio and the other Republicans in the Gang of Eight — Sens. Jeff Flake and John McCain of Arizona and Lindsey Graham of South Carolina — will have on House Republicans whose votes will determine the fate of legislation to overhaul the immigration system. Rubio has met with members of the House Republican leadership as well as with Ryan and members of the conservative Republican Study Group. Among House Republicans, supporters of legalization in any form, citizenship or otherwise, is scarce, although Blunt predicted there would be “an incredible amount of reasonableness” on that subject once lawmakers thought the border had truly been secured. The House Judiciary Committee has approved two immigration bills recently, one of which echoes Mitt Romney’s suggestion in the 2012 presidential campaign that immigrants “selfdeport” if they are in the country illegally. It encourages immigrants living in the United States to “depart voluntarily” at

their own expense. Neither of the bills cleared by the committee offers the prospect of legalization for immigrants in the country illegally, either citizenship or a step short of it. House Speaker John Boehner, R-Ohio, has pledged not to bring legislation to the floor for a vote that does not have the support of at least half the GOP lawmakers in the chamber, a commitment made under pressure from restive conservatives that virtually rules out any measure envisioning legalization. Some GOP lawmakers are hoping no immigration bill passes, to avoid the possibility of a final compromise with the Senate that goes further than they want. Boehner also has said the entire House will “work its will” on the issue. It’s a comment that takes into account the potential impact of House Democrats, some of whom are already clamoring for a chance to vote on the bill that clears the Senate this week. Republicans command a 234-201 majority, meaning that as few as 17 GOP defections could change the outcome of any vote.

Bryant: Medicaid special session starts Thursday Mississippi taxpayers must bear the expense of a special session because some lawmakers chose to make a political point during the regular session instead of acting responsibly to conduct state business at the appropriate time,” Bryant said in a news release Monday. “I urge the Legislature to act immediately upon convening to authorize and fund the

Division of Medicaid. Taxpayers should not have to pay for days of political showmanship, and Medicaid beneficiaries deserve to be freed from the uncertainty that has been thrust upon them.” Republican Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said in his own statement that he had spoken with Bryant and House Speaker Philip Gunn, R-Clinton, and all

agreed the House would be the first to consider Medicaid reauthorization. “I support extending the agency for one year to study ways to reform the program, improve care and find efficiencies to save money,” Reeves said. Earlier this year, the Senate reauthorized and funded Medicaid without expansion in a bipartisan vote.”

JACKSON — Mississippi Gov. Phil Bryant said Monday that he’s calling lawmakers into special session at 10 a.m. Thursday to keep the state’s Medicaid program alive and funded once the new state fiscal year begins July 1. The Republican is not asking lawmakers to expand Medicaid, which is an option under the federal health care law that President Barack Obama signed in 2010. Many Democrats have been pushing to expand Medicaid or to allow lowincome working people to use federal subsidies to buy insurance on the private market. However, Republican leaders say the state can’t afford to add another 300,000 people to Medicaid, and they don’t want to increase people’s dependence on government programs. Medicaid is a federalstate health insurance program for the needy, aged, blind or disabled and for low-income families with children. Mississippi is one of the poorest states in the nation, and its population is just short of 3 million. More than 644,000 Mississippians are already enrolled in Medicaid, and expansion could add an estimated 300,000. Medicaid is one of several state programs that come up for legislative review and reauthorization every few years. Because of a partisan dispute over expansion, lawmakers ended their three-month regular session without reauthorizing or funding the program. “It is unfortunate that

Texas prepares to execute 500th inmate The Associated Press

HUNTSVILLE, Texas — Jim Willett remembers the night of Dec. 6, 1982, when he was assigned to guard a mortuary van that had arrived at the death house at the Huntsville prison. “I remember thinking: We’re really going to do this. This is really going to happen,” says Willett, who was a captain for the Texas Department of Corrections. When the van pulled away early the next morning, it carried to a nearby funeral home the body of convicted killer Charlie Brooks, who had just become the first Texas prisoner executed since a Supreme Court ruling six years earlier allowed the death penalty to resume in the United States. What was unusual then has become rote. On Wednesday, barring a reprieve, Kimberly McCarthy will become the 500th convicted killer in Texas to receive a lethal injection. The number far outpaces the execution total in any other state. But it also reflects the reality of capital punishment in the United States today: While some states have halted the practice in recent years because of

concern about wrongful convictions, executions continue at a steady pace in many others. The death penalty is on the books in 32 states. On average, Texas executes an inmate about every three weeks. Still, even as McCarthy prepares to die at the Huntsville Unit, it’s clear that Texas, too, has been affected by the debate over capital punishment. In recent years, state lawmakers have provided more sentencing options for juries and courts have narrowed the cases in which the death penalty can be applied. In guaranteeing DNA testing for inmates and providing for sentences of life without parole, Texas could well be on a slower track to execute its next 500 inmates. “It’s a very fragile system” as attitudes change, said Mark White, who was Texas attorney general when Brooks was executed and then presided over 19 executions as governor from 1983 to 1987. “There’s a big difference between fair and harsh. ... I think you have (Texas) getting a reputation for being bloodthirsty, and that’s not good.” Texas has accounted

for nearly 40 percent of the more than 1,300 executions carried out since murderer Gary Gilmore went before a Utah firing squad in 1977 and became the first U.S. inmate executed following the Supreme Court’s clarification of death penalty laws. (Texas had more than 300 executions before the pause.) Virginia is a distant second, nearly 400 executions behind. Texas’ standing stems both from its size, with the nation’s second largest population, and its tradition of tough justice for killers. Still awaiting punishment in Texas are 282 convicted murderers. Some may be spared. Supreme Court rulings have now excluded mentally impaired people or those who were under 18 at the time of their crime. Legal battles continue over the lethal drugs used in the process, mental competence of inmates, professional competence of defense lawyers and sufficiency of evidence in light of DNA forensics technology. Texas Gov. Rick Perry, who has presided over more than half of the state’s executions, said that the recent changes

have helped make Texas’ system fairer. In addition to the new sentencing options, he signed bills to allow post-conviction DNA testing for inmates and establish minimum qualifications for court-appointed defense attorneys. “I think our process works just fine,” Perry said last year during his unsuccessful presidential campaign. “You may not agree with them, but we believe in our form of justice. ... We think it is clearly appropriate.” So do most Texans. A 2012 poll from the Texas Tribune and the University of Texas showed only 21 percent opposed to capital punishment. Still, re-examinations of convictions have raised questions about whether some of those executed may have been innocent. The suspect cases included the 2004 execution of Cameron Todd Willingham for the arson deaths of his three young children. Arson experts consulted by a state panel determined evidence used to gain the conviction did not meet scientific standards. But Texas Attorney General Greg Abbott later barred the panel from further review of the trial evidence.

Over the years, the Texas execution list has provided a portrait of violent crime in a state where many people are armed, both good and bad, and juries have little tolerance for murderers. Those executed have ranged from relatively common cases — robbers who killed store clerks, drug users who killed other drug users, spouses killing each other — to the bizarre and sensational. Ronald Clark O’Bryan, nicknamed the “Candy Man,” poisoned his son’s Halloween candy to collect on an insurance policy. Angel Resendez, a serial killer, rode the rails, stopping along the way to murder strangers. Lawrence Russell Brewer dragged a black man behind a pickup truck in a racist killing. In the prison town of Huntsville, executions have become a well-worn ritual. For more than 20 years, Dennis Longmire has been a fixture outside the fortress-like prison on execution evenings, holding a lit candle on a street corner. Hundreds of demonstrators once gathered there but interest has long since subsided. “Texas continues to march to a different beat,”

as other states drop the death penalty, says Longmire, a criminal justice professor at nearby Sam Houston State University. He calls the execution total “staggering.” McCarthy, convicted of killing a 71-year-old neighbor during a robbery in 1997, is among eight inmates scheduled for execution over the next four months. She would be the first female put to death in the U.S. in three years and the 13th woman since the Supreme Court allowed capital punishment to resume. McCarthy, 52, was condemned for using a butcher knife and candelabra to beat and fatally stab retired college professor Dorothy Booth at the victim’s Lancaster home. Evidence showed the former nursing home therapist used the knife to sever Booth’s finger to steal her wedding ring. McCarthy, who is linked to two other slayings, already has had her execution date pushed back twice this year. Her attorney, Maurie Levin, is trying to halt her execution again, contending black jurors improperly were excluded from her trial by Dallas County prosecutors.

Judge in Trayvon Martin case weighs police calls The Associated Press

SANFORD, Fla. — Several times in six months, neighborhood watch captain George Zimmerman called police to report suspicious characters in the gated townhouse community where he lived. Each time, when asked, he reported that the suspects were black males. On Tuesday, the judge at Zimmerman’s murder trial in the killing of 17-year-old Trayvon Martin listened to those five calls and weighed whether to let the jury hear them, too. Prosecutors want to use them to bolster their argument that Zimmerman was increasingly frustrated with repeated burglaries and had reached a breaking point the night he shot the unarmed teenager. The recordings show Zimmerman’s “ill will,” prosecutor Richard Mantei

told Judge Debra Nelson. “It shows the context in which the defendant sought out his encounter with Trayvon Martin,” Mantei said. Defense attorney Mark O’Mara argued that the calls were irrelevant and that nothing matters but the seven or eight minutes before Zimmerman fired the deadly shot into Martin’s chest. The prosecution is “going to ask the jury to make a leap from a good, responsible, citizen behavior to seething behavior,” O’Mara said. The judge did not immediately rule on whether to admit the recordings. Prosecutors played the calls with the jurors out of the courtroom at the beginning of a day in which a former Zimmerman neighbor testified about what she saw of the con-

Our Family Serving Your Family, Yesterday, Today & Tomorrow

frontation. Also, prosecutors presented graphic photos of Martin’s body, a police officer described trying to revive Martin as bubbling sounds came from his chest, and a police manager described how she helped Zimmerman set up the neighborhood watch. In the calls, Zimmerman identifies himself as a neighborhood watch volunteer and recounts that his neighborhood has had a rash of recent break-ins. In one call, he asks that officers respond quickly since the suspects “typically get away quickly.” In another, he describes suspicious black men hanging around a garage and mentions his neighborhood had a recent garage break-in. Zimmerman, 29, could get life in prison if convicted of second-degree

murder for gunning down Martin as the young man walked from a convenience store. Zimmerman followed him in his truck and called a police dispatch number before he and the teen got into a fight. Zimmerman, whose father is white and whose mother is Hispanic, has denied the confrontation with the black teenager had anything to do with race, as Martin’s family and its supporters have charged. On Tuesday, Day 2 of testimony, prosecutors called to the stand a former Zimmerman neighbor, Selene Bahadoor, the first witness to say she saw part of the struggle. She described the sound of movement from left to right outside her townhouse and said she heard what sounded like someone saying, “No” or “Uh.” She said that when she

looked out a window she saw arms flailing in the dark. She said she left to turn off a stove and then heard a gunshot. The next time she looked out, she saw a body on the ground, she testified. In cross-examining her, O’Mara accused Bahadoor of never mentioning the left-to-right movement in previous interviews. Zimmerman contends he lost track of Martin and was returning to his car when he was attacked. But Bahadoor’s testimony appeared to suggest Zimmerman was moving away from his vehicle. A Sanford police sergeant who was the second officer to arrive on the scene also testified. Sgt. Tony Raimondo said he tried to seal a bullet wound in Martin’s chest with a plastic bag and attempted mouth-tomouth resuscitation.

During Raimondo’s testimony, prosecutors showed jurors a photo of a dead Martin face-down in the grass, another of Martin’s body face up with his eyes slightly open, and a third of the bullet wound. Martin’s father, Tracy Martin, walked out of the courtroom during the testimony. Wendy Dorival, former coordinator of the Sanford Police Department’s neighborhood watch program, testified how she had worked with Zimmerman to set up a watch in his neighborhood. When asked by prosecutor John Guy if neighborhood watch participants should follow or engage with suspicious people, she said no. “They are the eyes and ears of law enforcement,” Dorival said. “They’re not supposed to take matters into their own hands.”

Home and Garden

Shoal Creek is superb vitex variety for state Since it is June, the vitex have begun flowering, and these brilliant blooms are causing many gardeners and nongardeners alike to stop and take notice. The flowering period for vitex begins in late May on the Gulf Coast and moves on up to north Mississippi in the following weeks. The main flowering period lasts up to six weeks, but flowering continues sporadically for the rest of the summer. I get Gary many calls Bachman in May and June with Southern Gardening questions about the beautiful blue flowering shrubs we have at Coastal Research and Extension Center in Biloxi. I get to tell these gardeners about the wonderful qualities of the vitex. The plant has tiny flowers that bloom in small clusters that come together to form larger arrangements. These arrangements, or panicles, can be up to 18 inches long and appear at the tips of branches and in the axils of the leaves. These plants are true butterfly magnets. Flower color varies from lavender to lilac and pale violet. The color can even be a brilliant, nearly fluorescent blue. During the initial flush of blooms, the show of flowers may resemble a hazy blue cloud. On days when there is just the gentlest breeze, you can enjoy the blooms’ delicate, slightly floral scent. Vitex leaves are arranged opposite from the blooms on distinctly square stems. The plants grow in clusters, with five to nine finger-like leaflets radiating from a single point. When

Vitex is a flowering shrub or small tree that blooms for at least six weeks in Mississippi’s summer. Its brilliant flowers attract bees, butterflies and hummingbirds. crushed, the stems and foliage smell sweet. The foliage is dark gray-green on top and bluish-gray underneath, and when mature, the leaves have slightly fuzzy bottoms. An improved selection called Shoal Creek is worth searching for at garden centers and nurseries. This variety has a spring/summer flush of flowers that is more vigorous than others, and the flower color is a more intense and deeper blue than the regular species.

Vitex tolerates hot and dry weather extremely well, which makes this an outstanding small tree for Mississippi landscapes. It is typically sold as a multistem tree, and if left unpruned, vitex will eventually grow up to 15 to 20 feet tall and wide. The tree tolerates pruning well and is easily maintained at 8 to 10 feet tall. Pruning actually encourages the development of a strong branching structure. Complete all pruning by late winter,

as the flowers are produced on new wood or the current season’s growth. Plant your vitex in partial shade to full sun for best flowering performance. While they tolerate a wide variety of soil conditions and textures, they require well-drained soil. This plant suffers in highly organic soils that stay wet. The native range of vitex is the low woodlands of southern Europe and western Asia. It was called chastetree in an-

cient Greece, as Athenian woman lined their beds with its leaves to remain pure during the feast of Ceres. Due to this inhibitive effect, it also is known as chasteberry and monks pepper. Vitex was first introduced to the United States by settlers and has since become naturalized in the Southeast. Vitex is a spectacular specimen plant in the landscape. It is particularly well suited to being grown in a large container

near a patio or other outdoor living area, but be aware that it can attract heavy numbers of bees and other pollinators. It can also attract the hummingbird to gardens and landscapes. So plant one today and sit back and enjoy the view.

Fruit trees may need thinning for best growth or flavor The Associated Press

Fruit trees that were so full of blossoms this spring that they looked like giant snowballs foretell a heavy crop of fruit later this year. Too heavy. Too much, perhaps, for the branches to support. And surely so heavy that next year’s harvest could be paltry. Some fruit trees are prone to a feast-and-famine cycle — a heavy crop one year and a light crop the next. My Macoun apple tree is one of the worst in this regard among the score or so apple varieties that I grow. Fortunately, this tendency toward “biennial bearing” can be reined in.

Blame it on hormones Hormones produced in fruit seeds are to blame for biennial bearing. The hormones suppress flower-bud formation, which begins in fruit trees the year before the flowers actually unfold. So a heavy crop one year — and, hence, a lot of seeds — quells flower-bud formation that year, and flowering and fruiting the next year. In a year with few fruits, hormone levels stay low, so many flower buds are initiated and in the next year trees are a riot of blooms. The way to thwart this feast-and-famine tendency is to reduce the num-

ber of fruits in a tree’s “feast” year. Pruning is one way to do it — cutting off some stems that would have flowered and gone on to bear fruit. The time for pruning most fruit trees is past, though; it was back in late winter and early spring, before growth began again. Pruning, of course, has effects beyond those on biennial bearing, and each kind of fruit tree has its own pruning needs. Still, as you prune to open a tree up to light and air, and to control its size, you are also removing potential fruits and seeds. And shortening branches puts remaining fruits closer to the trunk, where they are

less likely to break a limb. But pruning alone is generally not enough to get a fruit tree out of a bad habit. Now is the time to start looking over your trees and “thinning” — that is, removing — excess fruitlets. Focus your energy on larger fruits, such as apples, pears and peaches, because thinning would be too tedious — and has little effect — on small fruits such as cherries and small plums.

Take matters in hand The sooner you begin thinning, the greater the benefit next year, especially with apple trees. I use my thumbnail or a pointy

pair of flower shears. If you have a lot of trees, you might opt for more laborsaving methods, such as blasts of water from a hose or batting the flowers with a piece of hose slid over the end of a broomstick. Many commercial orchardists thin their fruits with chemical sprays. No need to complete all the fruit thinning in one session. Ideally, do it in two waves. The first is after fruits begin to form. The second is right after June drop. After carrying extra fruitlets to get it through spring frosts and other early-season calamities, a tree gives a sigh of relief that danger has past, and decides it’s OK to shed some fruits. Once that

happens, look over your trees and put a few inches of space between each developing fruit, selectively saving those that are largest and most free of blemishes.

Further rewards Fruit thinning has other benefits, too. It reduces pests, such as codling moth — the “worm” in an apple — because Ms. Codling prefers to lay eggs in apples that are touching each other. Fruit thinning also lets the tree pump more energy, which translates into bigger size and better flavor, into those fruits that remain. If you grow Asian pears and want to grow goodtasting ones, be especially bold with fruit thinning.
