Farmington completes latest sewer expansion BY JEBB JOHNSTON

FARMINGTON — Expansion of sewer service to the Pine Valley area of Farmington is complete, and the town is seeking grant funding for additional expansion. Mayor Dale Fortenberry reported to the Board of Aldermen this week that the Pine Valley expansion is awaiting final inspection. The work has wrapped up

about four to six weeks earlier than anticipated, adding about 40 residences to the sewer system. Farmington has applied for funding through the Small Municipal and Limited Population Counties Grant Program for another project that would expand service to an estimated additional 30 residences in the area of County Roads 119 and 130. Pine Valley and this area are the last of those identified

by the health department as having a dire need for sewer service, the mayor said. Municipalities may apply for up to $150,000. With a larger pot of money available through that program this year, Fortenberry is optimistic that Farmington will have a shot at getting the funding, which requires no local match. The Pine Valley project was funded through an EPA grant of $253,000 and a low-interest

loan of $227,120 through the Department of Environmental Quality. In other news from Farmington: ■ Fortenberry is encouraging the board to consider a smokefree ordinance for the town. He presented an example ordinance from Plantersville to consider. The mayor said most of the businesses in Farmington tell him they already have policies

against smoking. ■ The board agreed to pursue a policy restricting fund-raising roadblocks because of safety concerns. Several groups have recently asked to have roadblocks in Farmington. The intersection of Farmington Road and Kimberly Clark Parkway is particularly a concern because of the extreme breadth of the junction. Please see EXPANSION | 2

GLEN — A morning downpour didn’t keep the Alcorn Central High School band from going outside.

Members of the Purple Pride hit the practice field for the final day of camp once the heavy rain stopped. “The kids have been very positive,” said new band director

Eric Perry. “They were asking to go outside once the rain slacked … that makes a difference in what we want to do.” Please see MUSIC | 2

Organizers of the annual School Prayer Walk are asking for the community’s support as they pray for Alcorn County’s schools and children. “God has been good to us and truly blessed us by keeping our schools safe from the tornadoes and shootings that other schools have faced and I truly believe it’s because of the prayers that were prayed over these schools by the people that thought it important enough to take the time to come out and pray,” said Kat Chapman, coordinator of the Alcorn Baptist Prayer Ministry. The event is not just a “Baptist thing,” the organizers emphasized. It’s for all denominations, everyone who wants to pray for the local schools and their students. Members of several denominations were represented at the School Prayer Walk planning meeting. Participants are asked to meet at a school of their choice on Saturday at 9 a.m. or any time between 9 and 11 a.m. It is not a centralized, single event, but a chance to visit the schools and pray for

the schools and students. Event organizers are asking Christians in Alcorn County to make the School Prayer Walk a part of their Saturday morning. “Dare to be a Daniel. If Daniel had not prayed publicly he would have never gone to the lions’ den,” said Chapman. “It’s time Christians come out. All other groups are ‘coming out’ and they are not praying for our schools. they are preying on our children.” In the days leading up to the School Prayer Walk organizers are contacting local pastors and drumming up support for the event. While the School Prayer Walk has been an annual tradition for more than 13 years, organizers say the level of participation is still relatively low. “It is sad when we live in a county with about 33,000 people, and only 200 to 300 people care enough to come to the schools and pray for our most precious possession, our children,” said Chapman. “Let’s show our children how much we love them,” said Chapman, “and let’s honor the Lord by taking a stand for Him by coming out and praying at the school of your choice.” Anyone with questions or suggestions can contact Chapman at 287-2091.

Truck crops grow as products BY BONNIE COBLENTZ MSU Ag Communications

STARKVILLE — Greater consumer demand for locally grown produce has made truck crops a bigger part of the state’s overall agricultural production and increased related research at Mississippi State University. Truck crops get their name from the fact that they are often sold from the back of pickup trucks. They are produce crops, including blueberries, strawberries, sweet corn, beans, tomatoes, watermelon, greens and squash. Ken Hood, an agricultural economist with the MSU Extension Service,

said the state has just over 6,700 acres in truck-crop production. These crops represent about 2 percent of the state’s overall value of production in agriculture. Excluding sweet potatoes, these crops bring about $48 million to farmers. “Truck-crop production in Mississippi increased about 4 percent in 2012 over the previous year¹s value of production. It has doubled in production value since Hurricane Katrina hit in 2005,” Hood said. “The increase has been due to the growing interest in and public demand for locally grown foods. It appears that this trend is going to continue for the near future.”

While many Mississippians have a small garden patch in the backyard, growing fruits and vegetables commercially is hard work and can require a significant investment. “Crops like tomatoes and strawberries require upwards of $6,000 an acre to grow,” Hood said. “They both produce good profits, but a grower must have a strong cash flow position to get to the selling point.” Truck crops also require a lot of hand labor, especially at harvest time when labor costs can be half the cost of producing the overall crop. They are perishable, too, and usually must be harvested in one to three

days once they mature. Eric Lancaster and his wife, Anna, own Lancaster Farms in Starkville. They began the truck crops farm in 2010 and now have 12 acres of broccoli, cauliflower, lettuce, okra, tomatoes and more. “We grow anything and everything and sell at the West Point and Starkville markets, to people who come to the farm and to some local restaurants,” he said. “When I started in 2010, we were trying to get a little extra income, then it started growing larger and larger, and we saw there was a big interest in local trucks crops among restaurants and others.”



State Fire Marshal Mike Chaney. The targeted categories of Operation: Smoke Alarms Mississippi include residential homes, manufactured/ mobile homes, homes of persons who may not be able to afford smoke alarms, homes of the elderly, homes with children under 14, homes of persons with disabilities, and homes that may be considered an exception based on the potential life-saving impact presented by the request. The campaign comes

at a time when the number of fire deaths in the state is actually at its lowest since records have been kept — 62 in 2012, down from 80 in 2011. The campaign kicked off at the Neshoba County Fair on Wednesday. Fifteen cabins were destroyed in a massive fire at the campgrounds in 2011. The effort will encourage proper installation while promoting fire safety measures. To request a smoke alarm, contact the marshal’s office at 1-888-6480877 or make a request on the web at www.mid.

Keep students safe with technology BY DR. MARIAH SMITH Extension Center for Technology Outreach

School-age children are filling up backpacks with pencils and crayons as they prepare for the first day of school, which will be followed closely by homework assignments to complete on home computers. Increased computer usage brings the need for parental supervision and vigilance. Computers are not inherently bad. But, just as you tell your children not to talk to strangers, there are several things you need to teach them about technology. First, keep computers in a common area of the house where others can walk by and see what is on the monitor. Internet filters can help keep some things off your computer, like pornography, but it is still best to be vigilant. Filters also can re-

strict times for computer use and disable the student’s ability to surf the web when parents are not home. This feature gives the student an easy way out if friends are pressuring him or her to take part in cyberbullying. With more students some as young as elementary school age -- having access to social media sites like Facebook and Instagram, parents need to pay close attention to what is being posted. Be sure you have access to their accounts, including their usernames and passwords. Periodically check what they post and what others are posting about them. If your child absolutely refuses to let you friend them on social sites like Facebook, get creative. Most of the time they will let a grandparent or favorite aunt or uncle be their friend. Make sure you are friends with those people and routinely check what is being posted. Cyberbul-

lying is the most prevalent threat teens face, so parents need to be proactive. Many sites also allow instant messaging between people. Educate yourself on the use of instant messaging slang, which is the same slang used for texting and sexting. For example, they are communicating that a parent is watching if they type the numeral 9. The list is long and changes frequently. You can research some of the slang abbreviations at http:// If you aren’t sure about what something means or there is a post that you find inappropriate, take a screen capture of it for future reference. To take a screen capture, simply press the “Control� key on your keyboard and the “Print Screen� key simultaneously. Next, open a program like Microsoft Word. Press the “Control� key and the letter “V� on your keyboard to paste

the screen capture into the document. This way you have a record to go back to if needed. Most students from middle school up have a smartphone of some description. Don’t forget that most smartphones and tablets have Internet access. Students can access everything they would on your home computer on their phone or tablet. To increase safety, your options are to disable the Internet connection or consider buying a filter for the device. The most important thing you can do is to talk with your children about the technology. Students need to be aware that smartphone users can take photos of them in the locker room without their knowledge or consent. Giving children guidelines for technology and a safe place to discuss what they are doing with their gadgets is the best way to keep your kids safe online this school year.

Charges dropped in access protest Associated Press

NATCHEZ — Charges have been dismissed against a Michigan woman who was shocked with a stun and arrested after reportedly not complying with police during protest in downtown Natchez in June. Debra Pernell-Simmons tells The Natchez Democrat that she told the deputies Tuesday she was sorry for the incident. She says although she apologized, she does not believe she did anything wrong. Sheriff Chuck Mayfield says the sheriff’s department agreed to drop the charges after Simmons’ apology. A deputy used the stun gun on the 55-year-old Simmons of Farmington Hills, Mich., because she wouldn’t comply with officers’ orders. Simmons and members of the National Action Network were protesting outside the Adams County courthouse when deputies asked them to disperse. Mayfield says the group was blocking access to public buildings.

Staying firm on toughening border security BY DICK MORRIS AND EILEEN MCGANN House Republicans would like to vote for an immigration reform approach that hues to the amendment introduced by Sen. John Cornyn, R-Texas. This would require that the border be sealed, with illegal immigration cut by 90 percent before any legalization or amnesty could begin for illegal immigrants already here. Border security legislation emerging from the House Judiciary Committee will likely satisfy their concerns. Although it is not likely to prescribe how to cut illegal immigration, instead leaving that for the administration to figure out, it will tie further progress on reform to the successful completion of the border security mission. House Republicans ask what might happen if they pass this border security bill and it goes into the conference committee alongside the Senate bill that does not predicate legalization on actual progress on the border. They worry that the “compromise” that comes out of committee will closely parallel the Senate bill and leave border security far behind in the dust. Looming in the background is their legitimate fear that such a bill would easily pass the House with solid Democratic support and a smattering of Republicans, leaving them to vote no in frustration and impotence. But would the conference committee play out that way? It depends on how its work is perceived. If the Senate Democrats push for immigration reform and the House Republicans say they want border security first, the Republicans will win that debate. Latinos favor border security. A recent poll by John McLaughlin showed 57 percent of U.S. Latino voters back a bill along the lines suggested by Cornyn. And whites and blacks in the Democratic House districts will fail to understand why their Congressmen are giving priority to amnesty over border security. It’s a bit like the confrontation between President Clinton and the Gingrich-led Republican Congress in 1995-1996. In that battle, as long as the Gingrich budget cuts were the only path to a balanced budget, voters accepted their necessity and agreed to them. But when President Clinton laid out a path to a balanced budget that did not include the more severe of the Gingrich cuts, voters happily backed Clinton and turned against the Republican cuts in Medicare, Medicaid, education, and the environment. Now, if the only path to immigration reform and legalization of those already here is the Democratic approach, voters will accept it even without real guarantees of border security. But if the Republicans provide a way to achieve both reform and border security, voters will tilt their way. In the polarized world of Washington, one is either for reform-first or border security-first. But voters want them both. And the Republican approach offers that. The Democrats will, of course, argue that the Senate bill does too, but voters will side with the Republicans when they point out that the Obama administration, having failed to seal the border over the past five years, is not likely to do it now unless they are forced to do it in order to begin legalization. Republicans still have the majority in the House. If Speaker John Boehner gives his majority appropriate assurances that he will oppose any compromise that does not put border security first, he will assuage conservative concerns and will probably be able to get an almost unanimous Republican vote around the Cornyn approach. After all, we have to realize that if Boehner is forced to go to the Democrats for votes, they will weaken the bill, costing additional Republican votes, until we end up with the Senate bill. And if Boehner can keep his caucus united and immune to the seductions of the Senate bill, nobody need fear a conference committee. If the committee were to deadlock, Democrats would be perceived as refusing to pass tough border legislation even if it means gutting immigration reform. Neither their Latino nor their other voters will be pleased. (Daily Corinthian columnist Dick Morris, former advisor to the Clinton administration, is a commentator and writer. He is also a columnist for the New York Post and The Hill. His wife, Eileen McGann is an attorney and consultant.)

Prayer for today Father, thank You for allowing us to choose Your Holy Book to equip us for the works You’ve called us to do in Your name. Amen.

A verse to share “This they said, tempting him, that they might have to accuse him. But Jesus stooped down, and with his finger wrote on the ground, as though he heard them not.” — John 8:6

The subject of race arises, once again Here we are again. The recent Supreme Court holdings on the Voting Rights Act and the Texas Affirmative Action cases, the Trayvon Martin verdict, voter ID and election law changes in a number of states, the Paula Dean debacle, the election and aftermath of controversial Jackson Mayor Chokwe Lamumba and suddenly the major topic of conversation is again that of race, racism and the current state of race relations. Recent Sunday political talk shows were virtually 100 pecent on topic. “Vexing” is the word one African-American commentator used to describe the current state of affairs in the racial discussion. Certainly a central part of the problem in finding the words to enter into a discussion, as President Obama asked us to do, has to do with multiple generations attempting to weigh in with fixed perspectives on a number of fluid situations. There are those who came of age during the Jim Crow era when segregation in the South was a matter of law, and as such it embodied those dreaded code words “our Southern way of life.” Then there are those who primarily remember the transition period characterized by the Civil Rights Act of 1964 and the Voting Rights Act of 1965 when racial segregation as a matter

of law was ended forever. The years following were characterized by total school Marty desegregaWiseman tion and our initial Stennis very clumsy Institute efforts at learning to get along socially as we adapted to the principles of “political correctness.” And now there is the younger generation with little or no personal knowledge of the depth of the struggles it has taken to get this far. This latter group feels little responsibility for correcting the ills of previous generations. Thus, we carefully speak in multiple languages reflecting what we have come to believe, given the eras through which we have passed. Yes, there are whites who still embrace a time before the federal government stepped in to guarantee no law could allocate opportunity based on race, and there are younger whites who feel no responsibility for providing corrective measures for inequalities they feel they had no part in producing. By the same token, there are African-Americans who lived in the Jim Crow era who understandably still harbor resentment for be-

ing legally accorded status as second class citizens and elements of this resentment are passed from one generation to the next. And yes, there is a growing number of well meaning whites who endeavor daily to not allow race relations to regress. Furthermore, there is an increasingly more visible number of conservative African-Americans who clearly resent what they would describe as lingering paternalistic attitudes on the part of well-meaning whites, and at the same time they resent African-Americans who accept such attention. Noted economist, scholar and prolific writer Thomas Sowell is emblematic of this group. As if the evolving diversity of experience were not enough, there is the current combative political arena and the diverging economy to consider. The fact that in elections over the past 40 years the AfricanAmerican vote has consistently exceeded 90 percent for Democratic candidates throws fuel on the fire of the growing number of tighter election laws and voter ID legislation. Since these laws have been advocated almost exclusively by Republican majority legislatures the optics makes the black vote and support for the Democratic Party seem almost in-

terchangeable. As far as the economy is concerned, the growing divide between the well-off and the working classes appears to magnify our inability to empathize with one another’s struggles. Thus, we arrive at the scenario characterized by the question: “Since the free market knows no color or race, what is the role of government in creating and enhancing life chances?” We often hear the phrase “We have come a long way, but we still have a long way to go.” Arguably, the rest of the way is indeed the hardest part. President Obama called for a conversation on race. Just as the commentator said, commencing this discussion is “vexing” in light of the fact we speak from so many deeply held perspectives. How do we speak with the same language? Perhaps we had better learn because we are fast approaching the day when there will be no majority ethnic group. (Daily Corinthian columnist Dr. W.

Regression is the tragedy of isolation In the 20th century, Western intellectuals’ two most dominant explanations of disparities in economic, educational and other achievements were innate racial differences in ability (in the early decades) and racial discrimination (in the later decades). In neither era were the intelligentsia receptive to other explanations. In each era, they were convinced that they had the answer -- and dismissed and disparaged those who offered others. Differences in mental test scores among different racial and ethnic groups were taken as proof of genetic differences in innate mental ability during the Progressive era in the early 20th century. Progressives regarded the fact that the average IQ test score among whites was higher than the average among blacks as conclusive proof of genetic determinism. A closer look at mental test data, however, shows that there were not only individual blacks with higher IQs than most whites, but also whole categories of whites who scored at or below the

mental test scores of blacks. Among American soldiers given mental Thomas tests durSowell ing the First World War, Columnist for example, white soldiers from Georgia, Arkansas, Kentucky, and Mississippi scored lower on mental tests than black soldiers from Ohio, Illinois, New York, and Pennsylvania. Among other groups of whites, those with average mental test scores no higher than the average mental test scores among blacks included those in various isolated mountain communities in the United States, those living in the Hebrides Islands off Scotland and those in isolated canal boat communities in Britain. Looking at achievements in general, people living in geographically isolated environments around the world have long lagged behind the progress of people with a wider cultural universe, regardless of the race of

the people in these isolated places. Many mountain communities around the world have also been isolated, especially during the centuries before modern transportation and communications. These mountain communities were often not only isolated from the outside world but also from each other, even when they were not very far apart as the crow flies, but were separated by rugged mountain terrain. As French historian Fernand Braudel put it, “Mountain life persistently lagged behind the plain.” A pattern of poverty and backwardness could be found from the Appalachian Mountains in the United States to the Rif Mountains of Morocco, the Pindus Mountains of Greece and the mountains and uplands of Ceylon, Taiwan, Albania and Scotland. Cultural isolation can also be due to government decisions, as when the governments of 15th century China and 17th century Japan deliberately isolated their peoples from the outside world. At that time, China was the leading nation in the world.

But it lost that lead during centuries of isolation. Sometimes isolation is due to a culture that resists learning from other cultures. The Arab Middle East was once more advanced than Europe but, while Europe learned much from the Middle East, the Arab Middle East has not translated as many books from other languages into Arabic in a thousand years as Spain alone translates annually. Against this background, racial and ethnic leaders around the world who promote a separate cultural “identity” are inflicting a handicap on their own people. Isolation has held back many peoples in many lands, for centuries. But such social and cultural isolation serves the interests of today’s ethnic leaders. They have every incentive to promote a breast-beating isolation. It is a sweet-tasting poison.

Facing unexpectedly harsh opposition from both parties over its once-secret program capable of sweeping up the phone records of every American, the Obama administration said it wanted to work with lawmakers who seemed intent on putting limits on that authority. “We are open to reevaluating this program in ways that can perhaps provide greater confidence and public trust that this is in fact a program that achieves both privacy protections and national security,” Robert Litt, counsel to the Office of the Director of National Intelligence, told the Senate Judiciary Committee. The hearing came one week after a surprisingly close vote in the House that would have killed the phone surveillance program. It barely survived, but lawmakers promised that change was coming.

US economy growth sluggish in Q2

Factory Direct Furniture

WASHINGTON — The U.S. economy grew from April through June at an annual rate of 1.7 percent — a sluggish pace but stronger than in the previous quarter. Businesses spent more, and the federal govern-

ment cut less, offsetting weaker spending by consumers. The government on Wednesday sharply revised down its estimate of growth in the JanuaryMarch quarter to a 1.1 percent annual rate from a previously estimated 1.8 percent rate. Though growth remains weak, the pickup last quarter supports forecasts that the economy will accelerate in the rest of the year. Economists think businesses will step up investment, job growth will fuel more consumer spending and the drag from government cuts will fade. If so, the Federal Reserve could scale back its stimulus later this year. The April-June growth figure indicates that “the recovery is gaining momentum,” Paul Ashworth, an economist at Capital Economics, said in a note to clients. During the April-June quarter, businesses increased their spending 4.6 percent after cutting by the same amount in the January-March period. And spending on home construction grew 13.4 percent, in line with the previous quarter. At the same time, the federal government cut spending only 1.5 percent after slashing it 8.4 percent in the first quarter. And state and local governments spent more for the first time in a year.

his health care law and the prospects for immigration legislation, telling them “You’re on the right side of history.” In two closed-door meetings on Capitol Hill, Obama focused on financial gains as the economy emerges from the worst downturn since the Depression. He was warned about nominating former Treasury Secretary Larry Summers as chairman of the Federal Reserve and faced questions about his health care law. Some lawmakers complained that three years after its passage, the law still baffles many Americans. The first major rewrite of immigration laws in a generation and legislation to keep the government running without interruption are paramount issues for Democrats.

Political speaking begins in Neshoba PHILADELPHIA — Mississippi politicians are sticking to familiar themes during this nonelection year at the Neshoba County Fair. Wednesday was the first of two days for speeches. Lt. Gov. Tate Reeves said he has fought to reduce the state’s long-term debt and has pushed for charter schools and gun rights. “When parents see these public charter schools succeed, they’re going to demand more school choice for more families. And I will stand with them,” Reeves said. Attorney General Jim Hood said his office has collected more than $700 million the past 91⁄2 years from “corporations that have cheated the state.” Hood, the only Democrat in statewide office, said that for the past 20 years, states across the nation have drawn congressional districts with super majorities of either black residents or white residents. He said such districts have created a sharp partisan divide in Washington. Hood also criticized congressional Republicans for enacting a law several years ago called the “class-action fairness act,” which he said is not fair at all.

Simpson wins parole on some charges CARSON CITY, Nev. — O.J. Simpson has been granted parole on some charges stemming from his 2008 kidnapping and armed robbery convictions involving the holdup of two sports memorabilia dealers at a Las Vegas hotel room. The Nevada Board of Parole Commissioners on Wednesday released an order approving Simpson’s parole request. But the order doesn’t mean Simpson will be leaving Lovelock Correctional Center anytime soon. Because he was convicted on multiple charges, Simpson still faces at least four more years in prison on sentences that were ordered to run consecutively.

moter Corey Maclin has died in motor vehicle accident in Mississippi. The Mississippi Highway Patrol says the 43-year-old Maclin was southbound on Interstate 55 just south of Sardis around 10:30 p.m. Tuesday when his vehicle swerved into oncoming traffic and rolled over, throwing him from the vehicle. Maclin was pronounced dead on the scene. Maclin was alone in the vehicle. Maclin was a wrestling promoter in Memphis and formerly worked with Jerry Lawler before the two became embroiled in a trademark lawsuit over the name “Memphis Wrestling.”

Men imprisoned in real estate scam MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Men from Tennessee and Mississippi have been sentenced to prison in what federal

authorities called a real estate flipping scheme. A U.S. District Court judge in Memphis this week handed prison terms of 33 months to 43-year-old Michael Pinkney of Cordova and 50-year-old Alan R. Price of Olive Branch, Miss. U.S. Attorney Edward L. Stanton III said Pinkney conspired with Price to recruit nominee buyers of foreclosed properties, refinance them and submit fraudulent documents to mortgage finance companies. Pinkney owned Capital Mortgage and Peanut Construction Company and Price was a registered property appraiser. The government said loan funding companies lost nearly $1,284,000, which Pinkney and Price must repay. Both men pleaded guilty in mid-April to one count of conspiracy to commit wire fraud and one count of wire fraud.

Dozens arrested in sex trafficking case roundup JACKSON — Law enforcement agencies in the Jackson metropolitan area have made dozens of arrests as part of the FBI’s roundup of underage prostitutes and human sex traffickers. On Tuesday, bond was set in Rankin County court for three men charged with human trafficking. Christopher Jermaine Armstrong, 28, of Hattiesburg; James Edward Williams Jr., 27, and William Charles Toliver, 48, both of Jackson, appeared before Rankin County Court Judge Kent McDaniel. Toliver faces two counts of human trafficking, and Williams and Armstrong are each charged with one count of human trafficking and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. Armstrong was denied bond because of a probation violation. Bond was set at $10,000 for Williams and at $50,000 for Toliver. Rankin County made a total of 14 arrests. The stings this past week in Jackson took place at different hotels on the Interstate 55 corridor. Eight people were arrested. Two men — Square Jefferson, 24, and Gerald Knight, 25 — were charged with aiding and abetting prostitution, or pimping, a felony. Four others were charged with prostitution, including a 17-year-old girl. Two others were charged with possession of cocaine.

TUPELO — Lee County residents have approved a $13.5 million school bond issue. Complete but unofficial returns from Tuesday’s election show the bond issue passed with 85 percent of the vote. The bond issue will fund various construction and renovation projects on nine of county school district’s 11 campuses. The new debt would not result in a tax increase because it would replace a 1993 bond issue that expires next month. County School Superintendent Jimmy Weeks says the district needs to address overcrowding and aging facilities. Projects include new buildings throughout the district and demolition of older buildings.

Prosecutor: Evidence will show that Castro is monster CLEVELAND — When Ariel Castro was first arrested and charged with imprisoning and raping three women in his house on a tough Cleveland street over a decade, his attorneys said evidence would show that he was not a monster. The county prosecutor says the facts he’ll present Thursday at Castro’s sentencing, where Castro faces life in prison plus 1,000 years, will prove the lawyers wrong. “You’ll make the same logical judgment when you see the facts,” Cuyahoga County Prosecutor Tim McGinty said Friday after Castro pleaded guilty to 937 counts, including aggravated murder, kidnapping, rape and assault. “You have not seen the evidence yet.” McGinty hasn’t said whether the three women will testify in person. The legal team representing the women’s interests declined to comment on whether they would testify or send statements to the court. The women disappeared separately between 2002 and 2004, when they

were 14, 16 and 20 years old. There was no immediate comment Wednesday from Castro’s defense team.

Defense seeking merger of some Manning verdicts FORT MEADE, Md. — Lawyers for Army Pfc. Bradley Manning are seeking to reduce his potential sentence by having some of his convictions merged. The motions were revealed as the sentencing phase of Manning’s courtmartial began Wednesday at Fort Meade, near Baltimore. The sentencing hearing is scheduled through Aug. 23. The motions seek to merge two of the six espionage counts and two of the five theft counts of which Manning was convicted Tuesday. All of the counts involve Manning’s leak of Afghanistan and Iraq battlefield reports. If the judge agrees to merge the counts, it would mean Manning faces up to 116 years in prison instead of 136 years. The 470,000 reports were contained in two separate databases but contained similar material.

More movies arriving at nearby theaters soon Personally I enjoy the movie trailers at the beginning of the main attraction. I wait with anticipation as to what movie will be opening in the future. It gives one a chance to think about the movie and if it is worth watching. I arrive about 15 minutes before the movie begins, making sure I’m on time. I find my seat in the middle about threefourths toward the top of the theater, and settle down with my plain popcorn and a drink, ready to be entertained.

Trading shells for Percy’s watermelons and a life lesson BY JIMMY REED Percy Paterson’s watermelons were ripe for the picking when dove season started that year. Five of us teenagers, shotguns a-shoulder, decked out in boots, bandoleers and camouflage hats, were pillaging the countryside, ignoring bag limits, hunting posted ground and generally being cocky young bucks full of devilment. Stumbling upon the watermelon patch, we felt like lusty pirates of yore, about to reap the spoils of war. “Mr. Percy has got plenty of watermelons,” I said. “He’ll never miss a couple. Besides, he ain’t nowhere around anyway.” Snatching up two hefty melons, we plopped down under a shade tree,

Longtime legislator Barnett dies The Associated Press

BROOKHAVEN — Dr. Jim Barnett, a country doctor and longtime state legislator, has died at the age of 86. Officials with Riverwood Family Funeral Service say Barnett died Friday at St. Dominic Hospital in Jackson. Services are 10 a.m. Tuesday at First United Methodist Church of Brookhaven. Burial will be at Riverwood Memorial Park. A veteran of the Korean War, Barnett practice medicine in Brookhaven for 36 years. He served in the Mississippi House from 1992 to 2008. In an interview with the Daily Leader in 2012, Barnett said he had always been interested in politics. “I enjoyed the Legislature, and I did everything I could for Brookhaven,” he said. Barnett worked diligently to bring the Mississippi School of the Arts to Brookhaven and the campus of old Whitworth College. Barnett was a native of Edinburg. He received his Medical Degree from the Southwestern Medical College of the University of Texas in 1949. Barnett practiced medicine in Lincoln County for 36 years. Survivors include his wife, Roberta; nine children, 26 grandchildren and 16 great-grandchildren.

unsheathed our bowie knives and shared out the booty. Watermelon is good anytime — even better when stolen. In stature and character, Mr. Percy was a giant of a man, and one of the most esteemed farmers in the area. He started his working life as a boy, and with no education, a sharecropper’s grubstake, one mule and a few acres of hardscrabble land, built a highly productive farming operation that will support generations of Patersons. He stood head and shoulders above average mortals. His chest was as large as a bale of cotton; he had shoulders like boulders, ham-sized fists and banana fingers. No shirt collar could close

around his neck, and his deep basso voice shook the ground like a trumpeting elephant. His face was wide, whiskered and stern, and while he was the quintessential Southern gentleman, you knew by looking at his face that he was not a man to be trifled with. Yet, he had a marvelous sense of humor that perpetually expressed itself in his laughing, twinkling eyes. But Mr. Percy was the last thing on our minds. We were gorging ourselves on forbidden fruit. Suddenly the entire circumambience shook. “How many shells you boys got?” The giant black man materialized out of nowhere, towering over us

like Goliath, the mocking humor in his eyes a sharp contrast to the bulging, terrified eyes peering up at him. We were frozen stiff, chunks of juicy watermelon dripping from our knives. “You boys count them shells out — every single one of them,” he thundered. His command galvanized our paralysis into mad counting. In a flash, we divested ourselves of about twenty shells each, piling them at his feet. He gathered up the shells, stuffed them in his

coveralls, and turning to leave, said, “I hope you boys have a good hunt, and whenever y’all want to buy more watermelons, just let me know.” With that, he faded back into the trees, disappearing as silently as he’d appeared. We thieves were silent too … silent, humbled, and ashamed. And we’d totally lost our taste for the watermelons, even though they had cost us all of our ammunition. Mr. Percy has been dead a good many years now, but he taught us reckless

teenagers an invaluable lesson: Even if it’s just stealing watermelons, crime does not pay, a lesson we learned the hard way … the day we traded shells for melons.

Coming Up In The Daily Corinthian A keepsake edition “100 Years of Corinth Football” will be published before the start of the 2013 season. Look for this magazine to be inserted in the Friday, Aug. 23 edition of the Daily Corinthian.

Pets on a plane often suffer rough rides through airport DEAR ABBY: I travel a lot in my work with animal protection. Often I’ll encounter dogs and cats in distress as soon as I reach the airport. Distracted by their own thoughts, their owners seldom realize they’re upsetting the pets they’re carrying through the terminal. Animal carriers are carelessly swung to and fro, banged against counters, chairs and onto the floor. Cat or dog shoulder bags are dangled at angles that make it impossible for the animal inside to balance. These poor pets can be confused, dizzy and suffer from motion sickness before the flight even takes off. Traveling is stressful enough for animals. So please, everyone -- if you fly with an animal companion, keep it foremost in your thoughts. Use a sturdy, well-ventilated carrier, preferably one with wheels, that’s designed for animals and to fit under your seat. And please, keep the carrier upright and steady. -- ANIMAL LOVER IN WASHINGTON, D.C. DEAR ANIMAL LOVER: Thank you for the heads up. In case someone’s pet might have other issues while traveling, it’s always a good idea to talk about it with a veterinarian before embarking. (Sorry, I couldn’t resist.) DEAR ABBY: I’m a 19-year-old guy and for as long as I can remember my parents have yelled at me. It lasts for hours at a time

at night after they come home from work almost every day. It’s never about me doing something Abigail bad, but how never do Van Buren Ianything up to their exDear Abby pectations. I don’t know if they’re right or wrong, but it makes me depressed and I have been thinking about suicide. I have never been able to have an opinion of my own because as soon as I had one my parents would yell at me all over again and call me “stupid and retarded.” I cry myself to sleep at night hoping God will put me to sleep forever. Please tell me what to do. -- JUSTIN IN SAN FRANCISCO DEAR JUSTIN: Verbal abuse -- which is what you are describing -- can be every bit as destructive as physical abuse. Perhaps it’s time to consider moving out. With the constant verbal battering you’re receiving, it’s no wonder you’re depressed. Harming yourself is not the answer to your problem. Because you have reached the point of wanting to hurt yourself, call the National Suicide Prevention Lifeline. The number is 800-784-

2433. A counselor there can direct you to the help you need. You may have to build your selfesteem from the ground up, but the effort will be well worth it. My thoughts are with you. DEAR ABBY: A few months ago my mother joined Facebook and I readily accepted her friend request. I’m a 30-something IT specialist, but Mom is new to the Internet. There are times I have gone online and seen posts in which my mother is arguing with my friends about their lifestyles. I have friends and business contacts from all over the world, and their backgrounds are highly varied as are their belief systems. I have told Mom in private and public discussions that she owes someone an apology, but she shrugs it off. Am I wrong for asking her to respect my friends, and would you suggest I “unfriend” my mother until she learns proper Internet etiquette? -- DIGITAL FAMILY MAN DEAR FAMILY MAN: Because what your mother is doing could negatively affect your business, you should do exactly that. And quickly! (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

Horoscopes ARIES (March 21-April 19). The fast lane forces everyone to go fast because the flow of traffic will endanger you if you don’t. Because you prefer to go at your own speed, not a speed that’s dictated by those around you, getting out of the fast lane may be wise. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The things that scare you might be worth doing. You’re in a particularly bold mood today and are likely to leap from the high dive into the warm swimming pool of life. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You don’t mind if, once in a while, your loved ones get a little bossy or speak to you in an intimate kind of shorthand that’s less than polite. But if it happens more than not, start sticking up for yourself or it will only get worse. CANCER (June 22-July 22). In order to act when it’s time, you have to know when it’s time. Trust yourself. The temptation to move too soon or too late is ever-present, but only if you don’t trust yourself.

LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You may wish for a laboratory to try out your ideas. This could be as simple as a table and a few supplies or as elaborate as a fully staffed company. It begins with today’s wish. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). With fame comes gossip. Is it worth it? You’d rather be anonymous than have to think about everything you say and how it might be construed and what it will look like to others if you’re simply yourself. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your gentle courtesy will bring you to the top of a list. Finally you’re being considered for the position you really deserve, and you didn’t have to brag about yourself to get here. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Usually disinclined to make foolish moves, today something impulsive in you wants to put it all on the line. It might be argued that by risking everything you are making sure that you have fully lived. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec.

21). You’re not about to count your blessings as blessings until the end game is upon you, and even then you won’t really know. So instead you’ll enjoy what is. For now, it’s safe to say, “It’s all good.” CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Aim high and usually your arrow still winds up at ground level. But the view it will witness between the sky and the dirt will be far broader and more interesting than if you hadn’t shot into the sky. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). An imaginary encounter with yourself will be better than an actual encounter with the one you think is standing in your way. It turns out that moving yourself out of the way will clear your path of all other obstacles. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Between thinking and doing is planning. You don’t need a written agenda for this day to go smoothly, but it honestly wouldn’t hurt. You’ll save yourself time in the end because writing helps you remember key details.

Key Stats

Slugging Percentage

Edwin Encarnacion, Toronto The Blue Jays continue to struggle to find consistency, but Encarnacion did his part last week. He clubbed a pair of homers — one a grand slam — in one inning vs. Houston and totaled 13 hits to bat .520 for the week.

Max Scherzer, Detroit The big righthander tossed two gems last week logging 14 innings and allowing just five hits and no walks for a 0.36 WHIP. He struck out 12 batters and is now 15-1 on the season with a 3.01 ERA.

Giancarlo Stanton, Miami The Marlins’ right fielder hit safely in six of seven games last week including four multihit games and eight extra-base hits. He hit three homers — all solo shots — and drove in six while scoring seven.

Jose Fernandez, Miami The youngster defeated Colorado on the road and Pittsburgh at home last week, holding each team to just two runs. He struck out 21 batters over 15 innings and gave up 10 hits and two walks. For the week, he whiffed 13 and didn’t issue a single free pass.

Red Sox, Rays begin to separate themselves from pack. Biggest series in Pittsburgh since early 1990s. Shut down league’s best offense in sweep over Redbirds. Add a walk-off home run to Yasiel Puig’s list of heroics. Next 11 games vs. teams with losing records. Victor Martinez heating up in support of Cabrera and Fielder. Allowed opponents a .183 average last week to gain ground. Scored just seven runs in four games at Dodger Stadium. Texas ship is taking on water fast. Jeter and Soriano return with huge splash. May not see first place again this season. Tough week looms at Boston and Baltimore. Batting just .211 vs. lefties. Haven’t won three in a row since May 24. Back at .500, five games out of playoff position. 10-game West Coast trip coming up. Batted just .189 with no homers during tough week. Tyson Ross gives rotation a lift. Swept Giants at San Fran. Albert Pujols’ injury is a huge blow. Matt Harvey, Zack Wheeler: 12-3, 2.45 ERA; others: 17-32, 4.47. 9-15 and batting just .225 in July. Lack of punch drops Giants to last place in NL West. Carlos Gomez trying to pick up slack for suspended Braun. Boasting a winning record since May 30. Time to unload trade chips. Now on pace to lose 107.

Active Hall of Fame Candidates

August 4, 1982 Joel Youngblood hits safely for two different teams, in two different cities. He begins the day batting third and playing center field for the New York Mets at Chicago in an afternoon tilt. After a first-inning strikeout, he singles in two runs to break a 1-1 tie off Hall of Famer Fergie Jenkins. After the fourth inning, he’s traded to the Montreal Expos, who have a night game at Philadelphia. The eager Youngblood hops a flight to Philadelphia, arriving during the game. He is inserted in right field in the sixth inning and singles off Hall of Famer Steve Carlton in his only at-bat for the Phillies that night. The outfielder gained nine games in the standings that day, but was still seven games out of first.

Justin Verlander Verlander turned 30 in February and has 134 wins already.

If he has hit a wall, he has little chance. If he recovers and puts together another four solid seasons, he could near 300 wins and has a shot.

Derek Jeter of the Yankees is the current active leader in hits with 3,307 as of Sunday. Albert Pujols has the most home runs of any player who played in the big leagues this season with 492. Do you know what active player has the most doubles?

Record for Chris Sale of the White Sox in 10 starts since the beginning of June. During that time, the tough-luck lefty owns a 2.84 ERA, 1.096 WHIP and opponents are batting just .232. Complete game shutouts by left-handed pitchers against the Boston Red Sox in the 102-year history of Fenway Park. Matt Moore of the Rays is the latest lefty to shut down the Sox in Boston after his gem last Monday night. Remaining games that Atlanta will play against teams that currently have a winning record. The Braves will face the Cardinals — a team they just swept — four times in St. Louis, and Cleveland three times at home. RBIs for the Indians’ Michael Bourn over his last four games, all from the leadoff spot. Games the New York Yankees went without a right-handed batter connecting for a home run. From June 26-July 27, the Bronx Bombers hit a scant 10 home runs, all by left-handed hitters. Robinson Cano led the charge with five, Lyle Overbay hit three and Ichiro Suzuki connected twice. On Sunday, right-handed batters Derek Jeter and Alfonso Soriano both swatted long balls to break the month-long drought. Athlon Sports

TRIVIA ANSWER: Todd Helton of the Colorado Rockies is the active leader with 579 doubles.

The Hall of Fame celebrated the induction of the 2013 Hall of Fame class this weekend. While no players received enough support from the BBWAA to gain election this year, there were three individuals — Deacon White, a legendary bare-handed catcher from the 1800s, Jacob Ruppert, who purchased the struggling Yankees in 1915 and Hank O’Day, an umpire for 30 years who umpired the first World Series in 1903 — elected by the special Pre-Integration Committee. So while the Hall enjoyed its annual weekend in the sun, our thoughts moved to current players and their prospects of being elected after retirement. HITTERS AGE 30+ IN Derek Jeter There’s nothing needed to add to his illustrious career. His 3,307 hits and five World Series championships essentially guarantee first-ballot election. Ichiro Suzuki The Japanese-born outfielder amassed more than 1,000 hits in his native country before emigrating to the U.S. He still has a shot at 3,000 hits stateside, but that’s not necessary to make him worthy. Albert Pujols Although the past two seasons in Los Angeles have been a struggle for The Machine, few players in history can match the first 11 of his career. It would take a complete disaster for Pujols to fall short. LIKELY Miguel Cabrera His career numbers (fewer than 2,000 hits and 400 homers) are still shy of making him a lock, but his career track has him ticketed for Cooperstown. David Wright Now the face of the Mets’ franchise, Wright must continue to put up typical numbers, and he’s only 30, so he has time. His election (or not) will certainly spark debate, either way.

MLB tells union which players it plans to suspend Associated Press

NEW YORK — Major League Baseball has told the union which players it intends to suspend in its drug investigation and which ones will receive lengthier penalties for their roles in the Biogenesis case. The sides are trying to reach as many agreements as possible that would avoid grievance hearings, and talks could push back an announcement until Friday, two people familiar with the

talks told The Associated Press. The meeting between MLB and the union on Tuesday signaled the final stretch of talks. MLB hopes to announce the penalties for all players involved at the same time, both people said, speaking on condition of anonymity because no announcements were authorized. Under baseball’s Joint Drug Agreement, suspensions for violations not caused by a positive test are ef-

fective on the third business day after the discipline is issued — another sign pointing to a Friday announcement. Three-time MVP Alex Rodriguez of the New York Yankees stands to receive the longest suspension. While 50 games is the standard for a first offense, the stiffer penalties for some players are tied to other alleged violations, including not being truthful to MLB investigators. Three 2013 All-Stars

could face bans: Texas outfielder Nelson Cruz, San Diego shortstop Everth Cabrera and Detroit shortstop Jhonny Peralta. In a sign Peralta’s suspension might be imminent, the Tigers acquired shortstop Jose Iglesias from Boston on Tuesday night as part of a three-way trade with the Chicago White Sox. Another 2013 All-Star, Oakland pitcher Bartolo Colon, was suspended last year following a positive testosterone test, as

were Toronto outfielder Melky Cabrera and San Diego catcher Yasmani Grandal. They won’t receive additional discipline for that violation, the two people said. Yankees catcher Francisco Cervelli and Seattle catcher Jesus Montero also have been linked in media reports to Biogenesis, a closed Florida anti-aging clinic that was accused by Miami New Times in January of distributing banned performing-enhancing

drugs. Melky Cabrera was the 2012 All-Star game MVP while with San Francisco and Colon won the 2005 AL Cy Young Award with the Los Angeles Angels. Players who don’t reach agreements can ask the players’ association to file grievances, which would lead to hearings before arbitrator Fredric Horowitz. Discipline for first offenders under the drug agreement usually is not announced until after the penalty is upheld.

Baseball: Bring life to downtown Biloxi? BY MARY PEREZ The Sun Herald

BILOXI –— It might not be next year, but Tim Bennett believes a baseball stadium will be built across from the Beau Rivage Resort in Casino and help bring life back to downtown. Bennett, director of Overtime Sports, had hoped construction would be under way and that a team could be playing in Biloxi next season. Negotiations with the city and other due diligence are taking time and the late start to construction could postpone the opening date for a year. “If it ends up being 2015 it will not jeopardize minor

league baseball coming to Biloxi,” he said. The minor league season runs from April through September and he said the stadium will take about a year to build. Some teams, like the Pensacola Blue Wahoos, played the first part of their season on the road until their new stadium was complete. The location on U.S. 90 across from the Beau Rivage is still the prime site. “We want to give the team the best shot at success as possible,” he said. Talk of a stadium in downtown already has brought interest for more development. Bennett said he’s in discussions with developers of ho-

tels, retail, restaurants and entertainment. Councilman Kenny Glavan has visited three Southern League stadiums and although he wasn’t able to attend a game in Pearl, he saw the Bass Pro Shop, hotels, restaurants and outlet mall that built since the stadium opened. “You can see the economic development around it,” he said. In contrast, business is trying to come back in Biloxi’s downtown, he said, but some companies are leaving because there aren’t enough people. Ten years from now in Biloxi, baseball may not be as

significant as the development that occurs around the stadium, Glavan said. He and Councilwoman Dixie Newman attended a Mobile BayBears game, where attendance was low and Glavan said, “The stadium had a little bit of a tired feel about it.” Newman said her visit to Mobile “brought up more concerns” for a stadium in Biloxi. She said attendance beyond the first five years and upkeep must be taken into consideration. It was a different story when Glavan visited the new stadium in Pensacola SunPlease see BASEBALL | 13

Dalton more in charge during Bengals camp BY JOE KAY Associated Press

CINCINNATI — When receiver Cobi Hamilton dropped a sideline pass during a training camp practice, quarterback Andy Dalton sought him out and gave the rookie an encouraging and emphatic slap on the helmet. Cincinnati’s young quarterback is acting more like a leader. The Bengals made him a team captain last year after coach Marvin Lewis challenged him to be more assertive. Dalton was forced to spend much of his first two seasons just learning the offense and making sure he was doing everything right. Now, he’s making sure everyone around him is doing the right thing, too.

“I feel like I’m not just leading by example out there, I’m also being vocal out there,” Dalton said. “Now that I’ve played a couple of years, I’ve got some notches on my belt, so I feel like everybody knows that they can trust me. They know how hard I work and how much I study to get prepared for these games. “I feel like I’m able to be a really good leader for this, not only offensively, but for everybody as a whole.” If the Bengals are going to end one of the longest playoff victory droughts in NFL history, Dalton is going to have to lead the way. The second-round pick from TCU is the only Bengals quarterback to reach the playoffs in each of his first two seasons. He has thrown 47 touch-

down passes, trailing only Dan Marino (68) and Peyton Manning (52) for most in the first two seasons. His biggest shortcoming has been two subpar playoff performances resulting in losses at Houston, leaving Cincinnati without a playoff victory since the 1990 season. Dalton overthrew an open A.J. Green in the end zone in the closing minutes of the loss at Houston last season. He has spent a lot of time working on his footwork in the offseason, helping him become more accurate on deep throws. He’s also more focused on making sure everyone follows the script, which is one of the next steps that coach Marvin Lewis wants to see. “It’s not about Andy, but

let’s make sure these other 10 guys are exact,” Lewis said. “We have a lot of comfort in Andy to get us in the right spots and where we want to go. The other guys now have to adjust and move forward. To me, that’s the thing.” It’s been evident during the first six practices of training camp. “I think I’ve really taken control of this offense,” Dalton said. “I have an understanding of everything that we’re doing. Everything that they’re asking me to do at the line of scrimmage — changing plays, changing protections, changing routes — whatever it may be, I have full control of that. “All of that is going to make this offense better, and make Please see DALTON | 13

Royals acquire OF Maxwell for minor league pitcher BY DAVE SKRETTA Associated Press

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Just about the only thing that Justin Maxwell knew about the Kansas City Royals when he showed up to the ballpark Wednesday was that they were in the playoff hunt. Turns out that’s precisely why the Royals wanted him. With an eye on the postseason for the first time in a decade, the Royals traded minor league pitcher Kyle Smith to the Houston Astros to acquire the speedy Maxwell, giving them a right-handed bat to

help balance out the lineup for the stretch run. “It was definitely a surprise. I was on my way to the ballpark and (Astros GM) Jeff (Luhnow) gave me a call with the news,” Maxwell said. “I don’t really know much about Kansas City, but I’m excited. It’s a team in the wild-card hunt, or at least that’s what I’ve been told.” Maxwell was expected to join the Royals in time for the series finale Thursday in Minnesota. Kansas City will have to make a corresponding roster move.

Kansas City had won seven straight entering Wednesday night’s game at Minnesota, climbing above .500 and positioning itself to play meaningful baseball in August for the first time since 2003, when the club finished 83-79 for its only winning season since 1993. Still, the Royals were 7½ games out of first place, so there was just as much speculation that they’d be sellers at the trade deadline as chatter about picking up some help. Right-hander Ervin Santana was the name brought

up most often in trade rumors. He’s in the final year of his contract and could be too costly for the Royals in free agency, especially after a resurgent season. Santana is 7-6 with a career-best 3.03 ERA. Santana had made it clear that he wanted to remain with the Royals, though, and even counted down the minutes on Twitter until the 4 p.m. EDT trade deadline had passed. “Yessssssss!!!!!!,” Santana tweeted afterward. “Lets go get em!!!!!” Well, the Royals will go get Please see ROYALS | 13

Colin Kaepernick’s confidence soaring in 49ers camp BY ANTONIO GONZALEZ Associated Press

SANTA CLARA, Calif. — Just a week into training camp, Colin Kaepernick can already feel the difference between where the San Francisco 49ers’ offense is now versus this time a year ago. All of his teammates can see the evolution, too. Kaepernick’s confidence and comfort level has been soaring on and off the field. He has been tossing deep balls with more touch behind that powerful right arm — even leaving All-Pro linebackers questioning how to defend such precision — and strutting

around the 49ers’ facility with a black beanie on his head and bright red head phones around his neck to show off his swagger. “I think thus far I’m a lot farther ahead from where I am last year,” Kaepernick said Wednesday. “And hopefully moving forward that continues to show more and more.” All eyes have been on Kaepernick since camp began last week. While his favorite target has been new wide receiver Anquan Boldin, Kaepernick and tight end Vernon Davis turned in what might be the play of training camp Tuesday. A day

later, the throw and catch still had the 49ers facility abuzz. Davis, lining up in the left slot, was covered by All-Pro linebacker Patrick Willis underneath and safety C.J. Spillman over the top. Davis sliced across the middle of the field and made an over-theshoulder catch on a perfectly thrown pass by Kaepernick some 45 yards down field for a touchdown. “When Kaep threw the ball and Vernon was able to turn on another gear and go get it on the other side of the field, I’m just like, ‘Come on, that’s not even fair,’” Willis said. The play was just a small

sign of how far Kaepernick has come with his receivers. Davis’ role diminished when Kaepernick took over for Alex Smith last season. The tight end finished with 41 receptions for 548 yards and five touchdowns in the regular season; all three were his lowest since he caught 31 passes for 358 yards and two TDs in 2008. Kaepernick said Davis’ determination has never wavered. The two spent extra time together this offseason building that chemistry — which Davis candidly said last year they didn’t have — and trust to create big plays like the one in Tuesday’s practice.

and felt he had enough information to make a decision. “I wanted to make sure I gathered as much information as possible,” Stockstill said in a statement late Wednesday afternoon. “Their actions do not reflect upon all the good surrounding our football program. Every choice a person makes has consequences, good or bad. And unfortunately, their choice has led me to dismiss them from the team.” A spokesman for the campus police department did not immediately return an email message from The Associated Press. Middle Tennessee dismissed defensive tackle J.D. Jones on July 20 hours af-

ter he was charged with two counts of domestic aggravated assault July. Defensive tackle Marcus Robinson and cornerback Rodney O’Neal were charged with two counts of aiding and abetting and also were dismissed that night. All three are due in court Aug. 29, the day the Bleu Raiders open the season against Western Carolina. The videotape show Ronni Cantrell, 19, of Knoxville pleading with Jones to stop choking her first with his hand, then his arm from behind, according to a report by university police. The incident allegedly took place in November, but Cantrell did not speak to campus police until

July 19. Campus police have a copy of the videotape, and the report said suspects are heard not helping the woman and saying the choking “happens all the time or every day.” Cantrell also alleged that the 6-foot-3, 295-pound Jones beat her on the legs with a baseball-type bat when she refused to give him money to buy marijuana, according to the police report. Stockstill said having players facing criminal charges situation is embarrassing and frustrating after hours spent trying to educate his team. All three are redshirt sophomores, but only Jones was ex-

Butch Davis’ son leaves North Carolina for JUCO MTSU coach dismisses three charged in taped incident Associated Press

CHAPEL HILL, N.C. — North Carolina has announced that the son of former Tar Heels football coach Butch Davis is transferring to a junior college. In a release Wednesday, the university announced that quarterback Drew Davis is headed to Coffeyville Community College in Kansas. Davis redshirted last season as a walk-on for the Tar Heels. He threw for 3,525 yards and 30 touchdowns in 11 games as a senior in 2011 at East Chapel Hill High School for coach Bill Renner — the father of current UNC starter Bryn Renner. UNC fired Butch Davis days before preseason practice started in 2011 amid an NCAA investigation into improper benefits and academic misconduct. Current UNC coach Larry Fedora says he wishes Drew Davis “nothing but the best of luck.”

MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Middle Tennessee coach Rick Stockstill has dismissed three players facing charges in connection with an incident caught on videotape showing one choking a woman while two teammates watched and narrated. The coach said in a statement Wednesday he wanted to take his time in making the decision to dismiss the three players. The dismissal came hours after he spoke at the Blue Raiders’ media day saying he would wait until school officials and police finished their investigation, even though he had seen the video

day. A restaurant owner told him a game day at the downtown ball field is “like turning on a switch,” with customers coming in before and after the game. The Pensacola stadium exceeded his expectations. After each inning were activities for the kids and after the game people walked from the stadium to downtown businesses. Regional college teams have already expressed interest in playing at a Biloxi stadium, he said. But if the city drags its feet and negotiates too long, he said the team and new stadium could end up somewhere else. “I hope that doesn’t happen,” he said.

“This isn’t going to have any effect on this team I can promise you that,” Stockstill said. “One, I think because none of those guys are the quarterback. ... This team I think is a lot more mature. It’s been through a lot. I’m not going to let it be an issue.” The arrests and suspensions mar what’s been a historical few months for Middle Tennessee. The

Blue Raiders officially joined Conference USA on July 1 and have had a variety of celebrations and promotions on changing leagues from the Sun Belt Conference. Middle Tennessee is coming off a season in which the Blue Raiders went 8-4 and just missed out on a bowl berth despite finishing tied for second in the Sun Belt. Stockstill has nine

starters back on offense, including senior quarterback Logan Kilgore who threw for 2,571 yards with 16 touchdowns and only six interceptions last season. Running back Benny Cunningham currently is in camp with the St. Louis Rams in the NFL, but they also have a handful of running backs returning including Jordan Parker, who led the team with 851

yards rushing. The defense has seven starters back, and four players speaking Wednesday don’t see this investigation and suspension causing any distractions. “We’re going to have to find someone to replace them, which I know we will and I think it’ll be just fine,” defensive lineman Jimmy Staten said before the players were dismissed.

me better as a player.” The Bengals have given him a couple more options in the passing game, drafting tight end Tyler Eifert in the first round and running back Giovani Bernard in the second. It’s partly up to Dalton to make sure it all blends together on the field. Left tackle Andrew Whitworth pointed out that Dalton got much better from his rookie season to last year, when he threw

for 3,669 yards and 27 touchdowns. “People are trying to rush him along,” Whitworth said. “He’s a thirdyear quarterback who has started since day one and had success with the greatest of greats, when you go back and look at his statistics compared to the guys that have played this game. “So sure, there’s things he wants to do better, but he’s kept up with the progression.” Green has seen a change


‘em with a new outfielder to help out. They were seeking a right-handed outfielder prior to the non-waiver trade deadline, and at least on paper achieved their goal. Maxwell is hitting just .214 with two homers and eight RBIs in 40 games this season, but he’s hitting .302 against left-handed pitchers. Maxwell fits the bill for relatively cheap, too: He’s making $492,500 if he spends the entire season in the majors, and the Royals will have him under control through 2016. “I definitely enjoyed my experience here in Houston. It was my first extended time in the big leagues,” Maxwell said. “I had a lot of fun this year and last year, met a lot of great guys on this team. I just wish them all the best.” In return for Maxwell, the Astros picked up 20-year-old Smith, a fourth-round pick of Kansas City in the 2011 amateur draft. He’s 5-4 with a 2.85 ERA at Class-A Wilmington this season. Maxwell’s career has so far been filled with more downs than ups. He broke into the big leagues as a 23-year-old with the Nationals in 2007, but only played in 108 games over the next three seasons. He was traded to the Yankees in 2011 and then claimed off waivers by Houston, where he’s spent the past two seasons.

This is his team and his offense. He knows it now.” NOTES: DE Carlos Dunlap was among several veterans who didn’t practice on Wednesday. Lewis said he suffered a mild concussion in the last practice.

Thinking is making own judgments â&#x20AC;&#x153;If everyone is thinking alike, then somebody isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thinking.â&#x20AC;? -George S. Patton Do you follow a path or blaze a trail where none have gone before you? Are your thoughts your own or are they based on what others around you are thinking? Do you structure your thoughts to conform to conventional wisdom or are they based on your own assessment? Leaders are original thinkers. They care about their own thoughts, not about what others think. They arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afraid to challenge conventional wisdom. They are constantly looking for a better way. Your thoughts define who you are and determine what you accomplish. If you follow the crowd, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never attain your own goals. Adjusting your thinking in order to be accepted, subverts your interests. Original thinking is essential to being your own person. Your thoughts should be based on independent analysis, not just believing what others tell you. Since your

thoughts govern every aspect of your life, you owe it to yourself to be disBryan c r i m i n a t Golden ing in how you think. Dare to Live Original Without Limits thinking begins with questions. Question everything. Always ask why. Always ask why not? Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept premises that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t add up or are counter to sound reasoning. Ask if there is a better way. An explanation of, â&#x20AC;&#x153;thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always done it,â&#x20AC;? is of little value. Do your own research. Analyze various options and positions.

Do your own research. Analyze various options and positions. Reject anything that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make sense. Everyone has an opinion. But only information from competent, reliable sources has any real value. their own experiences as well as their own values. For example, a person who has had numerous bad relationships probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any positive advice on dating. Someone who is always broke canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t provide good information on sound finance. Changing your perspective helps keep your thinking fresh. Varying the way you look at things keeps you from getting into a mental rut. Challenge assumptions about why you think the way you do. Stepping back from a situation helps enhance your objectivity. Being too close clouds your judgment. When reasoning becomes tainted by emotions, your thoughts are biased by your feelings. When you are angry, upset, or resentful you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think clearly, let

alone independently. Take a break from any emotionally charged situation before making any determination. Separate yourself from conventional thinking. Many news sources on TV, radio, in print, and on line provide you with filtered news rather than objective reporting. Look for and identify biases. How is the reporting slanted and why? What other view points are not being covered? Go directly to the source rather than depending on someone elseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interpretation. Dig for raw facts. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t accept things that are contrary to the evidence. Challenge others on their positions. Ask for proof, figures and concrete examples. Maintain a healthy degree of skepticism. When someone makes

an assertion, ask them to provide evidence. Opinions without a sound foundation are worthless. If someone canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t support their position, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of no value. You are an individual and your thinking ought to reflect this. Your life should be based on original thinking. Blaze your own trail. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t structure your thoughts to garner approval or acceptance. Cultivating original thinking empowers you to determine the best route you should take. It allows you to distill information to its essence. You are able to discern fact from fiction and truth from rumor. As an original thinker you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be distracted by rhetoric. Today is a perfect time to strengthen you independent thinking skills. (Daily Corinthian columnist Bryan Golden is a management consultant, motivational speaker, author, and adjunct professor.

2-headed Turtle at zoo gets Facebook Associated Press SAN ANTONIO â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A two-headed turtle born last month at the San Antonio Zoo has become so popular that she has her own Facebook page. Zoo officials say the Texas cooter, named Thelma and Louise for the female duo in the 1991 Oscar-winning movie, has been doing well. Spokeswoman Debbie Rios-Vanskike says the turtle eats and swims. She added that the two heads â&#x20AC;&#x201D; named Louise Left and Thelma Right â&#x20AC;&#x201D; get along. The Facebook page on Sunday showed photos of the quirky reptile and imaginary conversations between the two heads. The turtle hatched June 18. The animal is on display at the zooâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Friedrich Aquarium.

Aug. 15 concert to help Sanctuary hospice BY ANGELA STOREY

A musician with ties to Booneville will be one of the performers taking part in the Sounds of Sanctuary concert to support Sanctuary Hospice on Thursday, Aug. 15, at 7:30 p.m. at the Link Centre in Tupelo. Featured performers will be Nan Lawrence Holder (flute) of Tupelo, who is originally from Booneville, Martha Frances Monroe (piano) of New Albany and Svetlana Kaltchenko (violin) of Tupelo. The musicians have recorded a live CD of music, also titled “Sounds of Sanctuary,” which will be featured at the concert. The CD will be available for $10. All proceeds from CD sales and concert will go to Sanctuary Hospice. Guest artist will be Mary Donnelly Haskell of Oxford, a gifted vocalist and successful film and television actress. Sanctuary Hospice, a nonprofit organization, opened in 2005 and has served terminally ill patients in North Mississippi as well as parts of Tennessee and Alabama. Since its beginning, Sanctuary Hospice has relied on community support and donations. “I can’t express the honor it has been to work with Martha Frances and Svetlana on this project,” Holder said. “Sanctuary Hospice is a wonderful place and has lovingly cared for friends of mine, including Billie Morgan and Velma Garvin of Booneville. I am so thankful that we can support them through music.” The Sounds of Sanctuary project began as a discussion about three years ago, she said. “After delays and what appeared to be the end of any chance to do the project, everything came together very fast in April of this year. All of a sudden we had a recording date for a live CD, and it all went into overdrive from there,” Holder said. “Each piece was carefully selected to emulate the atmosphere and environment Sanctuary strives to create in its

Nan Lawrence-Holder of Tupelo, originally from Booneville, Svetlana Kaltchenko of Tupelo, and Martha F. Monroe of New Albany will perform flute, violin and piano music during a concert for Sanctuary Hospice on Aug. 15 at 7:30 p.m. at the Link Centre in Tupelo. The musicians’ live CD recording, “Sounds of Sanctuary” will be featured at the concert and available for $10. All proceeds from the CD sales and concert go to Sanctuary Hospice. peaceful setting.” Holder said many others volunteered their time and talents toward the project. David Dillard, of Tupelo, produced the CD. Photographer Darrell Ivy volunteered to do photo shoots for the CD and print programs for the concert. Lance Moore, of New Albany, volunteered to do the graphic designs for the project. “It is like every door opened all at once, and all we had to do was walk through them,” she said. “People have been wonderful to provide rehearsal space, listen to recordings and rehearsals to give feedback, and just support us with encouragement when we seemed to need it most. “Sanctuary Hospice is such a worthy cause, and so many people have given their time to make this fundraiser happen.” Holder started playing piano by ear around the age of 6 and began lessons when she was around 8. Her interest was short-lived. She began playing flute at the age of 11 and has continued to play since then. She has performed with the North Mississippi Symphony

Orchestra, Tupelo Community Theatre and performs around North Mississippi when she has the opportunity. She has also performed at Oxford University and at St. Mary’s Cathedral in Limerick, Ireland. Holder studied flute with Dr. Wade Irvin and Dr. Ellen Kaner. “Most of my musical training came directly from my family,” she says. “My mother, Rubye Penna Lawrence, was an excellent vocalist and pianist, and my father, Dean Lawrence, has been singing since he was 15.” She says she is the only one of the trio without musical “credentials.” She has a BBA from Ole Miss in Marketing and an MBA in Management from the University of Memphis. She works as an auditor for Nationwide Insurance. “My grandmother, Eron Huddleston Penna, taught me to read music before I could read words, so if someone asks me where I ‘studied’ I always think of my parents and grandmother as my main ‘professors.’ They were the basis of my musical education, and my dad is still continuing to teach

me.” Another member of the trio, Martha Frances Monroe, a native of New Albany, is currently serving as organist at First Methodist Church in New Albany. She is an adjunct faculty member at Itawamba Community College and Northeast Mississippi Community College. Monroe has performed at Carnegie Hall and St. Patrick’s Cathedral in New York City, St. Martin-in-the-Fields, St. Paul’s Covent Garden Church in London, La Madeleine and Notre Dame Cathedral in Paris, St. Mark’s Cathedral in Venice, St. James Church and St. Peter’s Basilica in Rome, and Dom Cathedral in Salzburg. Monroe started playing by ear as a preschooler and began lessons at 7. She began playing at church when she was 14 and began her life as an organist at 16. She began teaching piano lessons at 16 and has taught off and on her entire life. Monroe earned a Bachelor of Music Education at Ole Miss and a Master of Music from Mississippi College along with a Specialist in Music Education at Ole Miss. She received a Diploma in Piano from Ecole Normale de Musique-Paris, France and was the recipient of the Carnegie-Melon Fellowship for doctoral study. The third member of the trio, Svetlana Kaltchenko, was born in Moscow, Russia. She started playing violin at the age of 7. She earned her Bachelor’s Degree in Music and Music Education from Moscow State Tchaikovsky Conservatory and Astrakhan State Conservatory in Moscow, Russia, and Master of Music and Music Pedagogy degree from University of Southern Mississippi. She played in several professional orchestras in Moscow, State Symphony Orchestra of Cinematography of the USSR and Russian State Vivaldi Chamber Orchestra. As a member of the orchestras Kaltchenko performed in Italy, South Korea, Thailand, Germany, Austria, Czech Re-

public, and twice in the U.S.A. during two month tours in 1993, and 1996. The culmination of the tour in 1993 was the performance in Carnegie Hall in New York City. She has been a Tupelo resident since 2006. The concert’s guest artist, Mary Donnelly Haskell, is originally from Beaumont, Texas, and was crowned Miss Mississippi in 1977. She graduated with distinction from the University of Mississippi in 1981. She has starred in episodes of “Touched By An Angel,” “Seventh Heaven,” “Sisters,” “Diagnosis Murder,” “Days Of Our Lives,” and over 20 movies for television, including two of the Hallmark Channel’s highest rated Christmas movies “Once Upon A Christmas” and “Twice Upon A Christmas,” which are available on DVD. An accomplished singer, she has performed at venues including The Kennedy Center, The White House, and with The Prague Symphony Orchestra. She is also a popular children’s recording artist, having released four CDs through her company, My Songs. In 2005 she released her first contemporary adult album titled “Inspired,” a collection of inspirational standards. In May 2007, she released “Power Of The Cross,” a collection of Sacred Hymns and Praise Songs recorded with The Prague Symphony, and in Christmas 2008 she released a Christmas CD titled “Just In Time for Christmas.” She continues to perform with various symphonies and at churches across the country. She currently lives in Oxford with her husband, Sam, who is the former Executive Vice President and Worldwide Head of Television for the William Morris Agency. Tickets are $10 for the Aug. 15 concert and may be purchased at Reed’s Book Store or Room to Room in Tupelo, Peas and Carrots in Oxford and Bankhead Florist in New Albany or at the door. All proceeds go to Sanctuary Hospice.
