County works to prevent future landfill fires BY JEBB JOHNSTON

After a recent debris fire at the landfill, Alcorn County is hauling in dirt to cover the affected area and help prevent future fires. The fire happened June 19 in an area of accumulated wood and brush debris. Several members of the Board of Supervisors traveled to Jackson Thursday to meet with officials at the Mississippi Depart-

ment of Environmental Quality about the fire. “Most any time there is a fire, they will want to talk to you about what caused it,” said Board President Lowell Hinton. In this case, the cause of the fire was not determined. Hinton said DEQ wants county officials to respond with a plan of action in response to the fire. He said they have already been working on preven-

tion by bringing in additional dirt to cover the area. Several fire departments responded. Hinton said it was more smoke than blaze as it went underneath the bulk of the debris pile. The Corinth Fire Department found heavy smoke and some fire when it arrived at the landfill about 1:15 p.m. The fire was on the north side of the tall debris pile, and Fire Chief Rob Price said it was a challenging

situation. “The fire had tunneled underneath into the pile, and you couldn’t get water to it,” he said. “It was just tunneling under there everywhere.” Buddy Ayers Construction provided an excavator to help dig deep into the debris, and the Farmington, Glen, Wenasoga and Jacinto fire departments assisted. The Corinth Fire Department spent about five hours at the scene.

The fire posed no immediate danger to structures, but heavy smoke moved into the neighborhood. More than 30,000 gallons of water was used in the initial call. “We were using all of the water they could give us,” said Price. The fire department returned to the scene a couple of times in the following days as the debris continued to smolder.

Pup, pup and away: Unique organization provides lift to new home for shelter dog BY BRANT SAPPINGTON

As the small plane rose from the runway at the Corinth-Alcorn County Airport into Saturday’s morning’s clear blue skies, its furry four-legged passenger began a journey toward a new and better life thanks to a volunteer pilot and the dedicated staff and volunteers at the Corinth-Alcorn Animals Shelter. Mr. Billings, an 18-monthold American Eskimo dog, gave a friendly woof and a wag of his tail as he was loaded aboard the plane by volunteer pilot Jeff Spencer from Pilots N Paws for the first leg of his journey to a new foster home in Ohio. “It’s a great day,” said Charlotte Doehner, president of the board of directors of the Corinth-Alcorn Animal Shelter as she and the shelter’s Director of Media, Adoption and Rescue Phyllis Driver watched the plane disappear into the bright blue sky. Mr. Billings’s trip was arranged through Pilots N Paws, a national non-profit organization that connects volunteer pilots willing to donate their ser-

The Owen B. Whitehurst Memorial Scholarship Tournament has been an ace for students in Corinth and Alcorn County. The four-person scramble is taking its best shot for the 12th time on Aug. 25 at Shiloh Ridge Athletic Club. Proceeds from the 12th Annual Owen B. Whitehurst Memorial Scholarship Tournament will be used to fund a scholarship program to further the education of 2013 high school graduates in Alcorn County. “Over the years we have awarded approximately $30,000 to graduating seniors in Corinth and Alcorn County,” said tournament founder Mike Whitehurst. “We have been real fortunate to have people that want to play in the tournament.” Whitehurst started the tournament to honor his father — Owen B. Whitehurst — with the first scrambles held at Hillandale Country Club before moving to

MICHIE, Tenn. — A devastating fire has left one Michie family without their home and a semi-tractor that was used to make their living. The situation is made worse because the man just had brain surgery and the woman is unable to work because of a high-risk pregnancy. McKinley and Veronica Rowsey lost their home on Tulu Lane, off Hwy. 22 near Michie in the fire Tuesday morning. They lost everything in the fire, including McKinley’s Frontliner semi parked next to their house. They were in Memphis for McKinley’s evaluation after his surgery when faulty electrical wiring caused the fire. Rowsey has been driving a truck for 17 years. He said that he would be gone sometimes 2-to-3 weeks when he was on the road. “I want to thank all the churches and everyone that has

FIRE been praying for us,� said Rowsey. “I’ve had to swallow some pride because I was raised to never ask for any help.� He has been off work after undergoing surgery to remove a brain tumor on July 23 at Baptist Memorial Hospital - East in Memphis. McKinley, who has served in the Marines, can’t get health insurance because he had (ALL) leukemia when he was 3. Doctors told his parents at the time the radiation and chemo could cause a brain tumor. He and Veronica got married last year on June 28, his birthday. He was an active Marine for four years and stayed in the Marine Reserves for three more years. Rowsey is proud of the fact he is the only person

with a childhood cancer who has been admitted to military service. The only good news for the family lately is the tumor was benign and the surgeons told Rowsey they removed 95 percent of the tumor. Veronica is due to have the couple’s first child, a son, on Nov. 26. Ironically, that date is McKinley’s mother Mavine Rowsey’s birthday. “I’m very proud that she has handled the stress of the fire very well,� said her husband. If you would like to help the family, call Tracy Qualls at 731-239-9494 or McKinley’s father Joe at 731-2498250. They can use clothes or household items. McKinley’s sizes are 42x30 pants, XX shirt and size eight shoes. Veronica wears size 10-12 pants, medium shirt and size eight shoes, plus could use maternity clothes.

ownership in other parts of the country, particularly the Northeast and California, there is a great demand for the “average family dog� that the local shelter often has a hard time finding a home for here. These mixed-breed dogs are prized in these areas and rescue groups in those regions are always looking to bring these types of dogs in from other parts of the country to connect them with good homes in these areas. These rescue groups require the shelters they work with meet strict requirements for animal care and Doehner said the local shelter has worked hard to meet those standards. “It’s taken a year to feel good enough,� she said. Earlier this year the

group received a national award from the United States Humane Society that allowed them to travel to the national expo in Las Vegas where they were able to meet with other shelter operators and rescue groups and help build relationships and learn how to connect better with groups to save these animals. Driver and Doehner said it’s always rewarding to see an animal leave knowing its going a good home where it will be loved and taken care of. To learn more about the Corinth Alcorn Animal Shelter, visit them at, call them at 662-284-5800 or visit them at 3825 Proper Street Monday through Friday from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. and Saturday from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m.

the shelter’s Facebook page and contacted them about bringing him to a foster home they had arranged. They were then able to connect with Pilots N Paws and arrange to have him flown to his new home. For Spencer, a Huntsville, Ala., resident who works for NASA and has been an avid private pilot for many years, working with Pilots N Paws combines his two great loves — aviation and animals. In the two years since he made his first flight for the group filling in for a fellow pilot who had to cancel at the last minute, he’s made 28 trips for the group and transported 81 animals across the country.

“This is a combination of my hobbies, and saving animals like Mr. Billings here is special,� he said. Spencer said he’s also been blessed to meet a lot of special people in his travels for the group. “I’ve gotten to meet some of the most special, dedicated people around the rescues and the dedicated volunteers who give of themselves to save animals,� he said. Pilots N Paws was established in 2008 in Florida when animal-lover Debi Boles and Pilot Jon Wherenberg arranged a flight from Florida to South Carolina to save a rescued Doberman. From that first flight they developed the vision of Pilots N Paws, establishing a website at www.pilotsnpaws. org where pilots willing to

volunteer their time to fly rescued animals can connect with the shelters and rescue groups who need those services. Today the organization has 2,466 registered volunteer pilots across the country offering their time and skills to help save these animals. Doehner said they are extremely grateful for Spencer and Pilots N Paws and while Mr. Billing’s method of transportation is unique, the interaction between the local shelter and other rescue groups and the transfer of animals to other parts of the country is not. When the shelter announced earlier this year its goal of becoming a nokill shelter where no animals are euthanized due to space constraints, they

knew they would have to find places to send the animals that couldn’t be adopted here. Doehner said they’ve worked hard to improve the shelter and establish themselves as a quality organization that provides healthy animals that are ready for adoption. That effort combined with aggressive networking and Driver’s hard work in establishing the shelter’s website and Facebook pages has helped build relationships with animal rescue groups across the country. So far more than 60 animals from Alcorn County have been transferred to rescue groups around the country where homes were already waiting. Doehner said due to numerous regulations regarding breeders and dog

To enter or for more information about the memorial tournament contact Mike or Tracy Whitehurst 662-4155514, Winners Circle 662-287-7678 or fax 662-287-7679.

The desire of KDM is that individuals will both learn the power of obedience and gain a desire for a life of submission to Jesus Christ. For more information about Hough, who will

also be speaking during the Sunday morning service at 10:45 a.m., or the event call the church at 662-2862208. Tickets can also be purchased by calling the church located at 501 Main Street in Corinth.


His concept began in 2003 and involves the sharing of simple truths that come from the word of God. Using dogs as a visual illustration, KDM

blends humor with simple and timeless biblical truths to show the power of obedience in the life of the believer. “It is difficult to explain in words what makes Kingdom Dog so powerful,”

said Hough on his website kingdom “Put simply it is a man and his dog teaching the power of obedience.” Obedience flows out of love for God and leads to greater intimacy with

him. Jesus told his disciples that obedience to him was the clearest demonstration of their love for him. If ye love me, keep my commandments -- John 14:15.

Its OK to go up about 50-60 points. If it goes up more then you may need to make an adjustement in food or medicine. Remember your after meal blood sugar goal should be under 180 according Jimmy Bennett Ji B to the American Diabetes Association. Some doctors even recommend that you be under 140.

Letter to the editor Infrastructure investment remains crucial, essential To the editor, Today’s economic realities coupled with the changing workforce demographics stresses the importance of strong political and business partnerships. These partnerships cross local, state and federal boundaries and the Future Fare program will seek assistance from all entities involved. The Northeast Mississippi Business Incubation System (NEMBIS) is proud to support the Mayor and Board of Aldermen in a strategic partnership with their Future Fare program. In order to achieve economic health and prosperity for both our city and county, current and long range needs must be identified and Future Fare is an avenue through which those objectives can be achieved. Investments in a region’s infrastructure is crucial and absolutely essential for future growth, whether it be economical, educational or social. To become a progressive and competitive city, as our sister cities within a 50-mile radius have become, will of course come at a cost. All valuable assets are worth significant investments of both human and financial resources. The ability to spread those investment costs over a longer period of time minimizes the expense of the growth to be realized. NEMBIS applauds the strategic planning efforts of the Mayor and Board of Aldermen in their Future Fare program and look forward to the successful launching of this futuristic project. Ray McClellan NEMBIS Executive Director

Future Fare remains vote for the future To the editor, I am proud of our city and wonderful heritage we enjoy as Corinthians. We have an opportunity to make a statement about the future of our community in just a few days. When the option was presented back in the ’90s to vote to fund a new school, our citizens responded with the affirmation that we stand for progress. We are now given the option to vote for a positive plan to make our city a better place or a negative vote to watch further deterioration of the infrastructure of Corinth. None of us enjoy paying taxes, but we enjoy the benefits that those taxes provide. The mayor and alderman have given us a clear and concise plan of how this new money will be used. We should rally behind the efforts of these visionary men and vote yes for Future Fare. John Dodd Corinth

Prayer for today Open our eyes, O Lord, to see you in new life as it comes. Amen

So which one is Robin Hood? The presidential campaign made a stop this week in Sherwood Forest, as President Obama has declared his opponent, Mitt Romney, “Romney Hood,” a play on the Robin Hood legend. The president is contending that Romney wants to take money from working Americans through taxation and give it to people like Donald Trump. Of course, that’s the opposite of what the British brigand Robin did. He stole from the rich and gave the loot to the poor. Far be it from me to accuse the president of doing that, but others have. Robin Hood’s persona began taking shape in 14thcentury English ballads in which the woodsman clashed with the corrupt Sheriff of Nottingham. Over the years, the songs became more elaborate, and characters like Maid Marian and Friar Tuck came into being.

Then, in the 20th century, dashing actors such as Douglas Fairbanks and Errol Flynn Bill immortalized O’Reilly Robin. There was even The O’Reilly a TV show Factor starring a guy named Richard Greene who, appropriately, wore green tights. By the way, no one knows whether Robin Hood ever actually existed, but we are pretty sure Romney and Obama do. The president is basing his Romney Hood label on analysis by the Tax Policy Center, a liberal-leaning think tank. It says that Romney’s proposed tax plan would raise income taxes on the middle class by $2,000 on average, and that Trump and his cronies would get that money in the

form of tax cuts for them. The Wall Street Journal editorial page, a conservative crew, analyzed the TPC’s take and put forth: “It’s a highly ideological tract based upon false assumptions, incomplete data and dishonest analysis. In other words, it is custom made for the Obama campaign.” More ale, Friar Tuck? But really, who cares? Certainly not Obama. His entire campaign is now based on convincing voters that Romney is, indeed, the Sheriff of Nottingham, Henry the VIII and Louis the XIV all rolled into one. So don’t be surprised to see the president sporting green tights and a hat with a feather when he campaigns in San Francisco where outfits like that are readily available. As a 1 percenter, I would feel mighty bad if my mailman were forced to subsidize my lifestyle. It just

doesn’t seem right. I’ve been lucky in my career and have done well. I really don’t want some guy working at Taco Bell contributing to my electric bill. So if Romney is really considering taking money from the folks and giving it to Warren Buffett, I hope he will reconsider. This is not the way America should work. In this country, we are supposed to work hard and render to Caesar the things that are Caesar’s. That rendering is now becoming quite extensive and complicated. With all the campaign rhetoric and spin, it’s not easy to know for sure who’s really Robin. (Daily Corinthian columnist and veteran TV news anchor Bill O’Reilly is host of the Fox News show “The O’Reilly Factor” and author of the book “Pinheads and Patriots: Where You Stand in the Age of Obama.”)

Memorial honors ‘University Greys’ STARKVILLE — One of my fondest memories of the time I spent with writer Willie Morris in the early 1980s was a day spent walking the Vicksburg National Military Park with Willie and his aging black lab, Pete, and later to Raymond to the graves of his ancestors there. For all his enlightenment on matters of race and Mississippi’s bewildering history, Willie had a boy’s fascination with the history of the Civil War and he cherished the friendship he shared with esteemed Ole Miss historian David G. Sansing. Sansing, an accomplished writer in his own right, captivated Morris with the poignant story of Company A of the 11th Mississippi Infantry Regiment in the Confederate Army, the vaunted “University Greys.” The “University Greys” were Ole Miss students who withdrew from college to fight for the South in the Civil War. While the “Greys” fought with the Army of Northern Virginia in many notable and important Civil War battles — First Manassas, Second Manassas, Gaines’ Mill, Sharpsburg, Gettysburg, the Wilderness,

In those days, Willie’s son, David, was about the same age as the Ole Miss students who marched off to war never to return. That reality was not lost on Willie when he talked about the “Greys” and reflected on their fate. During the recent Neshoba County Fair, I had the pleasure of visiting briefly with Ole Miss Chancellor Dan Jones and with Sansing. Both will take part in a “Mississippi Day at Antietam” ceremony at the Antietam National Battlefield in Sharpsburg, Maryland on Sunday, Aug. 19. On that day, the 11th Mis-

sissippi Infantry Regiment Memorial will be dedicated. More than a decade ago, the Mississippi Memorial Association placed a monument at the Gettysburg National Military Park in honor of the regiment. As the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Antietam approaches, the 11th Mississippi Association will dedicate a marker to the regiment on private property within the Antietam National Battlefield park boundary. The dedication of the 11th Mississippi marker will be held on Cornfield Avenue at Antietam National Battlefield at 4 p.m. on Aug. 19. The Mississippi Sesquicentennial of the American Civil War Commission will join in the ceremony. Antietam was the single bloodiest day of battle in American history. On Sept. 17, 1862, the battle saw 23,000 soldiers killed, wounded or missing after twelve hours of fighting. Joining the “Greys” in comprising the 11th Mississippi Infantry Regiment were: Company B, Coahoma Invincibles, Friars Point; Company C, Prairie Rifles, Okolona; Com-

pany D, Neshoba Rifles, Philadelphia; Company E, Prairie Guards, Crawfordsville; Company F, Noxubee Rifles, Macon; Company G, Lamar Rifles, Oxford; Company H, Chickasaw Guards, Houston; Company I, Van Dorn Reserves, Aberdeen; and Company K, Carroll County Rifles, Carrollton. Sansing will chair the proceedings. Chancellor Jones will deliver official greetings from Ole Miss. Many of the Mississippi Memorial Association members who will honor these Confederate soldiers are also leading figures in the effort for racial reconciliation in this state and have fought for civil rights. Some — like Mississippi State University Archivist and historian Mike Ballard — have no connection at all to Ole Miss. Ballard works daily with the U.S. Grant Presidential Library collection at MSU. But the story of the 11th Mississippi Infantry deserves to be remembered. (Daily Corinthian columnist Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist. Contact him at 601-507-8004 or

Trial date set in Vicksburg shooting VICKSBURG — A man accused of a shooting inside Vicksburg Convention Center while fighting with his cousin’s accused killer and another man will stand trial in November. The Vicksburg Post reports Everett Defrance, 22, of Vicksburg waived his right to arraignment after indictment by a Warren County grand jury for aggravated assault and malicious mischief. Circuit Court Judge M. James Chaney set trial for Nov. 26. Defrance is accused of firing a .38-caliber pistol inside the conven-

tion center early Easter morning after a private party. About 450 people attended the event, and about 150 were in the convention center when the bullet ricocheted off a door and lodged in the ceiling, convention center director Troy Thorn said.

in the case says Wash induced another man to illegally purchase guns for him from the Rock House Trading Post in Meridian in May 2009 and again in November 2009. Wash also is charged with two counts of being a felon in possession of a gun.

Gun trial delayed for plea negotiations River museum grand opening Aug. 24 JACKSON — A federal judge has postponed a trial on weapons violations until Oct. 1 so the suspect in the case can continue plea negotiations with prosecutors. Joe Wash’s trial had been scheduled to begin Aug. 6, but federal prosecutors asked for the delay. The indictment

It will provide a glimpse at life along the river with an orientation theater and an assortment of interactive and educational displays.

Possible tornado destroys animal shelter TYLERTOWN — A possible tornado destroyed

one building, moved another six feet off of its foundation and killed at least one dog at the St. Francis Animal Sanctuary in Tylertown. “We think it may have been a tornado,” said Roland Vandenweghe, Walthall County’s Emergency Manager. The Enterprise-Journal reported the National Weather Service in Slidell, La., said it would send someone to the area later Thursday to determine if the damage done was by a twister. The storm also brought down trees and power lines in Summit, knocking out electricity to the police station and town hall. No other significant damage was reported in the area.

One of the shelter’s 350 dogs died when strong winds blew a kennel wall onto the building and another dog was critically injured. Two other animals had minor injuries. Neither of the shelter’s two employees was hurt, said KiKi Byrd, a sanctuary spokeswoman. A veterinary technician who was on her way to the shelter said she saw a possible tornado touch down, and said it spun her car around. The winds were so strong that a 2-by4 board was driven through the metal roof of one building, Vandenweghe said. “They had quite a few trees that had fallen on kennels,” he said.

Crew paints yellow line over dead raccoon Associated Press

JOHNSTOWN, Pa. — The “squirrelly” configuration of a western Pennsylvania road helped cause a state road crew to paint a double-yellow line over a dead raccoon. Motorcyclist Sean

McAfee snapped a photo of the mistake before it could be cleaned up and submitted it to the Tribune-Democrat of Johnstown. He says he almost crashed, he was laughing so hard.

PennDOT spokesman John Ambrosini says paint crews usually have a foreman on the job who clears away any dead animals before the paintspraying truck equipment passes by. This crew didn't have a foreman.

Romney picks Ryan as vice presidential cloice ting-draped backdrop, a symbol of the nation's military strength as well as an obvious reference to Ryan's home state. First Romney, then Ryan, a generation younger than his patron, jogged down the ship's gangplank to the cheers of hundreds and the stirring soundtrack from the movie “Air Force One.” As his family came on stage, Ryan knelt to embrace his daughter and two sons before kissing his wife. While word of Ryan's selection leaked late Friday night and was posted by the campaign to its phone app before the speeches, Obama's campaign withheld its reaction until the Republicans had spoken. “The architect of the radical Republican House budget, Ryan, like Romney, proposed an additional $250,000 tax cut for millionaires, and deep cuts in education from Head Start to college aid,” Jim Messina, the president's campaign manager, said in a written statement. “His plan would also end Medicare as we know it by turning it into a voucher system, shifting thousands of dollars in health care costs to seniors,” he said. Ryan's selection — as well as Romney's own nomination — will be ratified by delegates to the Republican National Convention that begins on Aug. 27 in Tampa, Fla. Obama and Vice President Joseph Biden will be nominated for a second term at the Democratic convention the following week. One campaign official said Romney settled on Ryan on Aug. 1, more than a week ago, and in-

BY KASIE HUNT Associated Press

NORFOLK, Va. — Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney introduced Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin as his vice presidential running mate on Saturday, turning to the architect of a deeply conservative and intensely controversial long-term budget plan to remake Medicare and cut trillions in federal spending. In the campaign to come, Republicans will present economic solutions “that are bold, specific and achievable,” Romney said as he presented his political partner. “We offer our commitment to create 12 million new jobs and bring better take home pay to middle class families.” The two men basked in the cheers of supporters in their made-for-television debut on a ticket hoping to make President Barack Obama's first term his last. “I did not make a mistake with this guy,” Romney exulted. “I am deeply excited and honored to join you as your running mate,” Ryan said in his first words at the podium.” He said that together, Republicans would eliminate the country's “debt, doubt and despair.” He said that “Regrettably, President Obama has become part of the problem, and Mitt Romney is the solution” to an economy that has yet to make a strong recovery from the worst recession in decades. The ticket made its debut at a naval museum in Norfolk, Va., the initial stop of a bus tour through four battleground states in as many days. The USS Wisconsin, berthed at the museum, was their bun-

formed Beth Myers, the longtime aide who had shepherded the secretive process that led to the selection. The official spoke on condition of anonymity to provide details. It was not known when Romney informed Ryan he wanted him on the ticket. In making his pick, Romney bypassed other potential running mates, including Ohio Sen. Rob Portman, Florida Sen. Marco Rubio, former Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty and Virginia Gov. Bob McDonnell. Officials said he had called all four to notify them of his decision. There was one unscripted moment, when Romney mistakenly introduced Ryan as the next president. He returned to the podium to say, “Every now and then I'm known to make a mistake. I didn't make a mistake with this guy. But I can tell you this, he is going to be the next vice president of the United States.” At 42, Ryan is a more than two decades younger than the 65-year-old Romney. His conservative credentials are highly regarded by fellow Republican House members, while numerous polls during the primaries of winter and spring found that Romney's credentials were suspect among the party's core supporters. A seven-term congressman, Ryan is chairman of the House Budget Committee, and primary author of conservative tax and spending blueprints that the tea party-infused Republican majority approved over vociferous Democratic opposition in 2011 and again in 2012.

ST. LOUIS â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A deepening drought in the nation's farm states has cut further into this fall's harvest, with farmers now expected to pull from their fields the lowest corn yield in more than a decade. But American farmers are still expected to produce their eighth-largest harvest ever, and while there's sure to be a rise in prices at the grocery stores, there's little risk of a failed harvest that would lead to shortages on the shelves. The U.S. Agriculture Department predicted the nation's biggest harvest ever in the spring, when farmers planted 96.4 million acres of corn â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the most since 1937. But it cut its estimate a month ago and again Friday, saying it now expects the nation to produce 10.8 billion bushels, the least since 2006. If that estimate holds, the federal government says it will be enough to meet the world's needs and ensure there are no shortages. But experts say food prices will almost

certainly climb as corn is a widely used ingredient found in everything from cosmetics to cereal, colas and candy bars. The drought stretching across the U.S. from Ohio west to California is deepest in the middle of the country, and major farm states like Iowa and Illinois are seeing conditions get worse each week. Farmers credit advances in seed technology that have produced hardier, more drought-tolerant corn for any harvest at all. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have to be honest with you, I'm totally stunned we have corn with green stalks and leaves after going through weeks of 105-degree temperature,â&#x20AC;? said Garry Niemeyer, the National Corn Growers Associated president who has 1,200 acres of corn and 800 acres of soybeans near Auburn, Ill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our corn yield normally would be about 190 bushels per acre. This year, if I get 110, I'd be thrilled to death.â&#x20AC;? The USDA's latest estimate predicts corn farmers will average 123.4 bushels per acre, down 24 bushels from last year in what would be the lowest average yield in 17 years.

â&#x20AC;˘ Mrs. Cox has proven her dedication to others while helping recover large amounts of disability benefits while working for former U.S. Congressman Travis Childers


next year. Whitacre predicted an eventual 4 to 6 percent increase in the cost of pork and beef. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You're going to see the ripple of this go out for quite a distance,â&#x20AC;? he said. The effect on packaged goods and other products is harder to predict because the price of corn may be only a small part of the total cost. For example, even with today's high corn prices, a 12-ounce box of cornflakes would have only about 8 cents worth of corn, said Paul Bertels, vice president of production and utilization at the National Corn Growers Association. That's a very small portion of the $4 or so consumers might pay for that box of cereal. Dennis Conley, an agricultural economist in University of Nebraska's Institute of Agriculture and Natural Resources, said he expected to see nominally higher prices in U.S. supermarkets, although when â&#x20AC;&#x153;is the million-dollar question.â&#x20AC;? He thought it might be a month or two before products using corn as an ingredient cost more. Corn prices have already been going up with steady reports of worsening drought and crop damage, jumping from just under $6 a bushel in late June to over $8 a bushel in early August.


Tables show seven most current contracts for each future. Grains traded on Chicago Board of Trade; livestock on Chicago Mercantile Exchange; and cotton on New York Cotton Exchange.


But the yield would still be as good as nearly a decade ago, when the average was about 129 bushels in a year without drought. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack trumpeted the resilience of U.S. farmers and ranchers on Friday, saying he didn't expect immediate increases in food prices and was optimistic the U.S. would continue meeting global demand for grain. The U.S. is the world's top exporter of corn, soybeans and wheat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Americans shouldn't see immediate increases in food prices due to the drought,â&#x20AC;? Vilsack said during a trip to droughtstricken Nebraska. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is important going forward is that we continue to do all we can to help the farmers, ranchers, small businesses and communities being impacted by this drought.â&#x20AC;? But experts have already been predicting increases in food prices. Rick Whitacre, a professor of agricultural economics at Illinois State University, said he believes the greatest impact will be in meat and poultry prices, given that many ranchers have sold off livestock as pastures dry up and feed costs rise. The selloff will result in lower prices through December with a glut of meat on the market â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but higher costs beginning

Usain Bolt and Ryan Bailey got the baton at almost exactly the same time Saturday night, then sped down the stretch for the final leg of the 4x100-meter relay. When Bolt reached his top gear, it was over. The World’s Fastest Man powered Jamaica to a worldrecord time of 36.84 seconds, making him 3 for 3 for the second straight Olympics. He also won the 100 meters and 200 in London and Beijing. Bolt picked up another victory long after the recordbreaking relay was over. After grudgingly handing the baton to an official right after he crossed the finish line, he got it back about 40 minutes later. He responded with a bow of thanks and kissed his new memento. Bailey and the United States got the silver in 37.04, matching the old record that Bolt helped set at last year’s world championships. Trinidad and Tobago took the bronze in 38.12 after Canada, which was third across the line, was disqualified for running outside its lane. Before Bolt and Co. took over the track, Mo Farah sent a charge through the capacity crowd at Olympic Stadium when he won the 5,000 meters to complete an Olympic long-distance double for Britain. Farah surged ahead late and held on to win in 13:41.66. He still had the energy to do a few playful sit-ups on the track before he grabbed a British flag for the real celebration. Allyson Felix won her third gold medal as the Americans rolled to an easy victory in the women’s 4x400 relay, and Russia capped a big day with

wins by Mariya Savinova in the women’s 800 meters and Anna Chicherova in the women’s high jump — giving the traditional Olympic power six golds on the penultimate day of the games. Another traditional power delivered when the U.S. women’s basketball team routed France 86-50 for its fifth straight Olympic gold medal. Candace Parker scored 21 points, including eight straight during the gamechanging run in the second quarter that put the U.S. in control. “It’s not easy to just be put together and be expected to win a gold medal,” guard Diana Taurasi said. “It’s a special feeling.” Team USA is poised to win the medals race for the fifth consecutive Summer Games, and David Boudia increased the winning total with the country’s first gold in diving since 2000. Boudia scored 568.65 points in the six-dive final for men’s 10-meter platform, edging Qiu Bo of China by 1.8 points. Tom Daley of Britain settled for the bronze. Mexico earned its first Olympic gold medal in men’s soccer and left Brazil wondering if it will ever be able to add the title to its long list of triumphs. Oribe Peralta scored 29 seconds into the final at Wembley Stadium and added another goal in the second half, leading Mexico to the 2-1 upset. Hulk scored for Brazil in injury time, but Oscar missed a header in the final seconds to waste the last chance for a comeback in front of 86,162 fans. “Mexico will be celebrating on the streets,” coach Luis Fernando Tena said. “It is a great honor for a coach to see his players singing the national anthem with gold medals around their necks. It’s a very important moment for Mexican football. It’s a great moment for us.” The U.S. men’s basketball team will play Spain for the Olympic title on Sunday, and Mike Krzyzewski told The Associated Press it will be his final game as the national coach. When asked if he was sure, Krzyzewski didn’t hesitate before again saying, “yes,” this

will be his last game. With a win, Krzyzewski would join Henry Iba (1964, 1968) as the only U.S. coach to lead the Americans to gold medals in consecutive Olympics. The rest of the Olympic action Saturday:

the ring.


Jaqueline Carvalho had 18 points and Brazil beat the United States in four sets to stop the Americans from winning their first Olympic gold medal in women’s volleyball. Brazil became the third team to repeat as gold medalist. The Soviet Union won in 1968 and 1972, while Cuba won three straight starting with the 1992 Barcelona Games. American star Destinee Hooker was held to 14 points. Castro and Claudino celebrated the victory by leaping into the official’s chair, and Brazil’s coaches rushed to pile on the other players. Later, the Brazilians danced into the medal ceremony.

Tamara Echegoyen, Angela Pumariega and Sofia Toro of Spain won the Olympic gold medal in women’s match racing, thanks in part to a boathandling error by Australia that swept its skipper into the water. With the best-of-five match tied at one, the boats were sailing nearly side-by-side downwind in the third race in big waves on Weymouth Bay when the Australian crew lost control and its boat rolled on its side. Skipper Olivia Price was swept out of the back of the boat and her crew had to pick her up before continuing. Spain won that race by 1 minute, 1 second, but the 20-year-old Price and her crew won the fourth race to force a deciding match. In another mistake, Price was assessed a penalty in Race 5 for a right-of-way violation and Spain sailed ahead to win the gold, leaving the Aussies with the silver.


Canoe Sprint

Bantamweight Luke Campbell won Britain’s first Olympic boxing gold medal in his division since 1908, dramatically knocking down rival John Joe Nevin of Ireland midway through the third round of a 14-11 victory. China’s Zou Shiming, light welterweight Roniel Iglesias, middleweight Ryota Murata and Ukrainian heavyweight Oleksandr Usyk also won their divisions. Shiming defended his light flyweight gold medal from Beijing with a 13-10 victory over Thailand’s Kaeo Pongprayoon, who angrily protested the result. Iglesias beat Ukraine’s Denys Berinchyk 22-15 for Cuba’s first boxing gold in London after failing to win gold in Beijing. Murata narrowly won the second boxing gold in Japan’s Olympic history, beating Brazil’s Esquiva Falcao 14-13 on the strength of a two-point holding penalty against Falcao in the final round. Usyk capped the night with a 14-11 gold-medal victory over Clemente Russo of Italy, celebrating with a nimble Cossack dance in the center of

Britain’s Ed McKeever won the men’s 200-meter kayak sprint in its Olympic debut, living up to his billing as “Usain Bolt on Water.” McKeever powered his way to victory in 36.246 seconds in front of British Prime Minister David Cameron and his family. Spain’s Saul Craviotto Rivero was second and Canada’s Mark de Jonge beat France’s Maxim Beaumont to bronze by three-hundreths of a second. Ukraine’s Yuri Cheban (men’s singles 200-meter canoe sprint) and New Zealand’s Lisa Carrington (women’s singles 200-meter kayak sprint) also won gold. Yury Postrigay and Alexander Dyachenko of Russia took the men’s 200 kayak sprint.

Farm. She took advantage of a mistake by defending gold medalist Sabine Spitz of Germany to build a massive lead, then rolled through the last of six laps all alone. The 23-year-old Bresset started blowing kisses to cheering fans on the final straight. Spitz wound up with the silver medal, and Georgia Gould of the United States claimed bronze. It was only the second Olympic medal in mountain biking for the Americans, who are credited with developing the sport in the 1970s. Susan DeMattei captured bronze at the 1996 Atlanta Games.

Gymnastics/Rhythmic Evgeniya Kanaeva became the first rhythmic gymnast to win two Olympic all-around titles, defending her gold medal from Beijing. Russia has captured the last four Olympic individual titles. It also has a chance for another four-peat in Sunday’s group event, too. Kanaeva posted the highest score in three of the four events and finished with 116.90 points. That was more than two points ahead of teammate Daria Dmitrieva. Liubou Charkashnya of Belarus won the bronze medal.

Wrestling/Freestyle Artur Taymazov of Uzbekistan won his third straight Olympic wrestling gold in the men’s 120-kilogram division, beating Georgia’s Davit Modzmanashvili in the final. Taymazov joins Alexander Medved of the former Soviet Union and Russian great Alexander Karelin as the only male wrestlers to win gold medals in three straight games. Azerbaijan won two titles, with Sharif Sharifov grabbing the gold in men’s 84-kg freestyle and Toghrul Asgarov taking the men’s 60-kg freestyle. American Coleman Scott won a bronze medal in the 60-kg competition.

Arkansas’ Davis remains held out from full contact BY KURT VOIGT Associated Press

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark.— Arkansas coach John L. Smith said Saturday there is a plan in place for when running back Knile Davis will take part in the full-contact portion of fall practices. Smith also said he’s not quite ready for the rest of the world — or Davis, for that matter — to know that plan. “He’s not aware of it yet,” Smith said following the Razorbacks’ first scrimmage of fall camp in Razorback Stadium. “He’ll tell if I share it with him. He’s a tattletale.” Davis, who missed all of last season with an ankle injury, has taken part in each of Arkansas’ practices this month and has faced the usual bumps that come with wearing pads. However, just as during the spring, Davis has yet to take part in a fullcontact scrimmage — though he’s completely recovered and coaches have said he’ll do so prior to the season opener against Jacksonville State on Sept. 1. The junior, who lead all Southeastern Conference running backs with 1,322 yards rushing two seasons ago, went through warm-ups Saturday morning. Once the scrimmage portion of practice began, Davis stood off to the side — holding his helmet in his hand and encouraging teammates at every opportunity. Davis wasn’t made available to talk follow-

ing the scrimmage, but he’s insisted throughout the spring and summer that he’s comfortable with whenever his coaches decide to let him face full contact. He broke his left ankle last August when a teammate rolled up on him during a preseason scrimmage, and Razorbacks offensive coordinator Paul Petrino said earlier this week that his timetable for facing contact has been an “ongoing conversation” between coaches. Smith said Saturday he would share the plan for Davis “when the time comes.” In the meantime, his teammates are excited at just the thought of his return to full action. “Whenever he has full contact, it’s going to be trouble for the defense,” senior receiver Cobi Hamilton said. “I’m very anxious. I think me and the whole world is ready to see what he’s going to do, including the rest of this offense. With him getting back in this offense, it’s going to be a real fun year.” Without Davis, the usually high-powered Arkansas offense — which led the SEC in total offense and scoring last season — sputtered at times during Saturday’s scrimmage. The performance included five straight possessions without an offensive score at one point and appeared to be another sign of change under the leadership of Smith and first-year defensive coordinator Paul

Haynes. The Razorbacks were last in the SEC in total defense in former coach Bobby Petrino’s first two seasons before improving to fifth in 2010 when they went 10-3 and reached the Sugar Bowl. Last season, Arkansas fell back to ninth in the SEC and parted ways with former defensive coordinator Willy Robinson after the regular season. Haynes was hired before a Cotton Bowl win over Kansas State, during which the Razorbacks held the Wildcats to 260 yards total offense, and his defense continued to show improvement on Saturday. Firstteam All-SEC quarterback Tyler Wilson was intercepted twice, including one that would have been returned for a touchdown by freshman linebacker Otha Peters, and the swarming secondary forced several drops by Arkansas’ usually surehanded receivers. “Everybody in the stands, all the fans, are looking for the offense to come out and just beat on the defense,” sophomore defensive end Trey Flowers said. “That happens every year, but we had a little chip on our shoulder that we had to come out there and make a statement. “I enjoyed it a lot. It’s a good thing, it’s a good feeling because

this is a high-powered offense at Arkansas and for us to come out here and semi-dominate them or have some good looks against them, it feels pretty good.” Smith wasn’t pleased with the drops or overall performance of the offense, but that concern was balanced out by the defensive performance. The Razorbacks finished ranked No. 5 last season, with their only two losses coming to national champion Alabama and runner-up LSU. Smith is counting on defensive improve-

ment to close the gap with the SEC’s elite. “It’s really different,” Smith said. “I think the kids feel good about themselves. I’m not worried about the offense. The offense is going to bounce back. They’re going to be good. I think it was a good spark and will help their confidence, which we need. Because, like I told them, ‘We need to be good defensively for us to be a great football team.’ That has been the big concern is that we’ve got to develop defensively, so I liked it.”

Soldiers’ major challenge was Corinth water BY TOM PARSON NPS Ranger

The other night I got a glass of water out of the kitchen faucet, drank it down, and told my wife Nita how good it tasted. “Of course,” I told her, “Corinth water was not always so good.” The gears in my head started turning and the outline for another article started to form. I guess she could see the look in my eye and warned me if I said anything bad about Corinth water we might wake up to find the tap dry the next morning. Banish the thought! I love Corinth water! It’s the water in the 1860s I want to talk about. Anyone from Corinth Gas & Water reading this article please read the last few lines again. The truth is, the water in Corinth during the Civil War wasn’t just bad, it was really bad. The wells in town were sufficient to supply a population of about 1,200 folks, and if it didn’t taste all that good, at last there was plenty of it. Then came the war and thousands upon thousands of soldiers -close to 200,000 during the height of the siege. The heavy rains of early May stopped falling and the wells began to go dry. Men began to drink from the creeks. And they began to dry up as well. Think I’m exaggerating? Let the soldiers -and a nurse -- speak for themselves: “The chronic diarrhea became the scourge of the army. Corinth became one vast hospital. Almost the whole army attended the sick call every morning. All the water courses went dry, and we used water out of filthy pools.” -- Pvt. Sam Watkins, 1st Tennessee Infantry “The water we had to drink was bad, very bad, and the rations none of the best. The former we procured by digging for it; the earth around Corinth being very light and porous, holding water like a sponge. When we first went there the ground was full of water, and by digging a hole two feet deep we could dip up plenty of a mean, milky looking fluid; but as the season advanced the water sank, so we dug deeper, and continued to go down, until the latter part of May when our water holes were from eight to twelve feet deep, still affording the same miserable water. My horse would not drink a drop of the water the men had to use, and if I failed to ride him to

An illustration from Harper’s Weekly Magazine depicts a marching column stopping for water.

Union soldiers wheel large barrels with water. a small running branch two miles away he would go without drinking.” -- Pvt. Samuel Barron, 3rd Texas Cavalry “The water here is very bad. I sometimes think I would give 50 cents for a good cool drink of water.” -- Cpl. James Talbert, 29th Mississippi Infantry “With every pint of

fluid one has to drink a half ounce of dirt. You feel it scrape the throat as it goes down, and after it gets to the stomach it lays as heavy and indigestible as a bed of mortar.” -- Capt. Louis Stagg, 16th Louisiana. “I have been told much about the suffering of our men in Corinth for

the want of water. Many a time they drank what their horses turned away from in disgust.” -- Kate Cumming, Confederate nurse “We again moved camp and called the place ‘Camp Shellwater.’ This name was derived from the character of the water, which tasted of the mussel shells found

in great layers near the surface. To obtain water fit to drink, we had to go a mile from camp.” -- Maj. Charles Miller, 76th Ohio I could go on and on, but I think you get the idea. As the summer of ’62 went on, the problems grew worse. Not only was the water nasty to drink, it became increasingly hard to find. There was a drought and many of the smaller creeks about town simply dried up. The water shortage became critical during the Battle of Corinth in the first week of October. The Confederates marched from Ripley in temperatures close to 100 degrees and they drank deeply from the muddy waters of the Hatchie and Tuscumbia Rivers. They filled their canteens from the Tuscumbia, and for many, this was the only water they had for the next 48 hours. A few were able to slake their thirst in the swampy bottoms along Turner Creek. They were the lucky ones. The Union soldiers had it much better during the battle. There were wells in town and the waters of Phillips Creek and Clear Creek still flowed. The problem was they needed the water on the front lines. Quick-thinking officers of the 9th and 57th Illinois sent wagons into town to return with oversized barrels of water. They arrived none too soon to suit the soldiers.

“The heat is intense,” one wrote during a pause in the fighting. “There is no water, and the men are famishing. Some of the Fifty-seventh fall in their tracks, fainting and exhausted under the rays of the scorching sun. Teams have been sent to the rear for the purpose of hauling water, but as yet none have reached us.” It was not just the infantrymen who needed the water. The artillery used it by the bucket. After every shot a wet sponge was swabbed down the cannon barrel to ensure there were no live sparks before another bag of black powder was rammed home. Even more critical was the need for water in the field hospitals. The depths of suffering and the desire for a single cup of water cannot be measured. The quality and quantity of water in Corinth has gotten better. We take it for granted that good water will flow when we give the faucet a twist. After reading about how things were 150 years ago, I’ll never take it for granted again. I think I’ll stroll down the hill and tell my friends at Corinth Gas & Water how much I appreciate them.

Best fishing can be found in less pressured areas Area lakes get hammered hard by fishermen throughout the first half of the fishing season and, by mid to late August, the bites usually become much tougher to come by. Fortunately, for those who are down on their luck, there is an alternative solution instead of sticking with fishing longer and harder in the same old tired holes. Some outstanding fishing can be found by locating places others seldom think to try. It could be a long forgotten farm pond with overgrown banks, backwater that’s hard to reach or one of our many canal

systems. W h a t m a k e s these places so good is obvious. A better David p o p u l a Green tion of fish per acre Outdoors that has received little or no fishing pressure is more likely to cooperate. Once a potential hot spot is located and before going fishing, make sure to get permission beforehand. In all likelihood, considering the place, permission will be granted but the last thing

Just about any significant drop-off close to a stretch of shallow water will hold a high concentration of fish ready to devour your offering. you’ll want to do is cause strife between you and the landowner. Back in the day, my friends and I had some of our best luck bass fishing in ponds that were all but forgotten about. The banks were so grown up we had to slip a small 12-ft. flat bottom boat in just to fish them, and the action on most occasions was practically non-stop.

If we weren’t hoisting a bass into the boat, we were at least getting a hit on almost every cast. I’ve been thinking real seriously lately about fishing a spot on the Hatchie River canal in the coming weeks that my friends and I used to fish a long time ago. We regularly caught stringers full of catfish by tossing minnows within a few feet of the bank, and

we did fairly well on bass by feeding them lightweight Texas-rigged plastic worms. No boat was needed. We fished from the bank. The main reason why I’ve been thinking about trying it again is because this is the best time of the year to fish the canals, whether you’re fishing for bass, catfish or some other species. Water levels are generally lower at this time, causing the fish to be pushed into a centralized location. Just about any significant drop-off close to a stretch of shallow water will hold a high concentration of fish ready to devour your offering.

What makes fishing the canal systems even more interesting is you never know what size of fish you’ll pull out. These days, since the canals don’t receive that much fishing pressure, there’s no telling how big of a fish will latch onto the other end of the line. Fishing during the dog days of August can be tough, almost to the point of being demoralizing to the fisherman who expects more. But it doesn’t have to be that way. The main thing is finding and fishing places that others don’t. Places that receive the least amount of fishing pressure.

Don’t forget: Boating and drinking are never a good mix BY JAMES L. CUMMINS Conservation Corner

As the temperatures remain extemely hot in August, so does our appetite to be on the water on the weekends. I would like to discuss awareness about boating safety and decrease the number of boating accidents. Alcohol use has long been associated with boating. Enjoying Mississippi’s many waters is a great way to relax. With the usage of alcohol, the combined effects of sun, wind, waves and boat motion tend to sneak up on you. Boaters become less aware of potentially serious boating problems such as speed, other boaters, wakes and threatening changes in the weather.

Judgment is seriously affected. Don’t overdo your boating fun. In 3 hours of normal boating, the noise, motion, sun, wind and glare can frequently double an individual’s reaction time. Studies indicate that these combined conditions affect a boater’s reflexes, coordination and overall awareness. A boat operator is likely to become impaired more quickly than a driver, drink for drink. A past study of boating fatalities in California, Maryland, New Jersey and North Carolina showed that 51 percent of the fatalities had a blood alcohol content of 0.04 percent or greater. Alcohol contents of 0.1 percent were found in 31 per-

Moderation and common sense should dictate how much alcohol is consumed on your boat. The best policy is to wait until you’re anchored for the day before enjoying alcoholic beverages aboard. cent of the fatalities. Peripheral vision, color and depth perception and ability to focus suffer. To alleviate this problem, have a designated driver. Keep alcohol consumption at a minimal or moderate level. Don’t drink and drive a boat (or automobile). Remember, as the driver, you are also responsible for the conduct of your guests. Moderation and common sense should dictate

With so many choices and so much riding on your decisions, it is good to have a trusted advisor who can help you sort through the alternatives and assist you with a plan that makes sense for you.” Chuck Counce, BancorpSouth Financial Advisor, 601 Fillmore Street, Corinth 662-396-6016

how much alcohol is consumed on your boat. The best policy is to wait until you’re anchored for the day before enjoying alcoholic beverages aboard. In addition to drinking and boating, the wearing of life jackets is another concern. Over 80 percent of boating fatalities involve people not wearing life jackets. Tragically, they had life jackets on board but were not wearing them. Be sure that you

keep the proper number of life jackets readily accessible in your boat and make certain all passengers are wearing one. Besides being a smart thing to do, it’s the law. The fact remains that very few people wear a life jacket especially when fishing from a boat. Excuses vary, but they are all poor – “I can’t cast or paddle with it on,” “it is too restrictive” or “it is too hot.” Considering the special tailoring available, life jackets can give the boater comfort and protection. The main reason for wearing a life jacket is clear. It is an insurance investment. You are protecting your life. But, correct fit and proper adjustment for the boater

wearing it are imperative if the safety margin it offers is to be obtained. Know how to correctly wear a life jacket. To become familiar with the characteristics of your life jacket, put it on, get in the water and practice swimming. Remember, a life jacket is no substitute for good swimming ability; it is merely an aid to buoyancy. (Daily Corinthian columnist James L. Cummins is executive director of Wildlife Mississippi, a non-profit, conservation organization founded to conserve, restore and enhance fish, wildlife and plant resources throughout Mississippi.

Tips can help grow beautiful roses BY FAMILY FEATURES From June to September, roses add a special flourish to yards, gardens and public parks throughout the U.S. But for many gardeners, tending roses may seem intimidating. With 23 years of experience, Jamie Shiffer, head gardener at Hershey Gardens in Hershey, Pa., knows a thing or two about cultivating a beautiful rose, in all of its varieties. Here are Shiffer’s top five rose gardening tips for gardeners of all experience levels: ■ Plant and fertilize early. Consider planting new rose bushes in early spring. “Both new and existing rose plantings will need to be fertilized at this time,” says Shiffer. He recommends applying a slow-release fertilizer surrounding the base. Research reveals it helps to

produce superior plant growth, improve plant health and vigor, and increase buds, blooms and plant yield. After fertilizing, thoroughly water your roses. If desired, you can apply two inches of mulch around the plant. ■ Avoid over watering. “The biggest mistake people make when watering is to water from overhead with a hose, instead of at ground level,” says Shiffer. Watering from above, Shiffer explains, can cause black spots to appear on the petals and throughout the day. As the heat intensifies, the water on the petals promotes fungal growth. To avoid this, water at ground level first thing in the morning. ■ Prevent black spot. While good watering techniques can prevent fungal growth, for some

gardeners, a humid environment can still lead to the same problem. “Treat black spot using a fungicide spray application on the plants every two weeks,” says Shiffer. ■ Prune for increased plant growth. To encourage rejuvenation and growth from your rose bushes, be sure to deadhead through Sept. Count from the blossom down to the fifth leaf and make an angled cut. ■ Maintain throughout each season. Regardless of variety, roses require year round maintenance.

School officially started Thursday.

Five great movies about troubled marriages BY CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie Critic

LOS ANGELES — Meryl Streep and Tommy Lee Jones play a longtime married couple who’ve fallen into a rut in the surprisingly honest and effective “Hope Springs.” She hopes intensive couples’ therapy will restore their romance; he’s content to fall asleep in front of the television every night watching The Golf Channel. Marriage, in all its states, is such a universal topic that it’s been portrayed in countless films. But troubled marriages can provide showy performances and moments of uncomfortable truth. Here are five great examples: ■ “Scenes From a Marriage” (1973): One of Ingmar Bergman’s very best, this intimate and piercing drama follows a seemingly happy, upper-middle class Swedish couple over the years as their marriage falls apart. Marianne (Liv Ullmann) and Johan (Er-

land Josephson) destroy each other, drift apart and eventually wind up with other people, but still find themselves intrinsically tied to each other. Working with his longtime collaborator, the great cinematographer Sven Nyqvist, Bergman is unflinching and uncompromising in his examination of this flawed and all-too human love affair, and Ullmann and Josephson are pitch-perfect. Originally presented as a six-part TV miniseries, it was edited down to a feature film of nearly three hours. Not a moment of emotion has been lost. ■ “Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf?” (1966): I reference this movie a lot, I realize, but this week’s list would seem empty without it. It’s the ultimate train wreck: Elizabeth Taylor and Richard Burton booze it up and berate each other in front a poor, unsuspecting young couple who had the misfortune of saying “yes” to their invitation to come

Calling this a messy divorce would be an understatement; what happens to the couple’s opulent mansion more closely resembles a war zone. over one night. Mike Nichols’ adaptation of Edward Albee’s play, his assured directing debut, would have had a relentless sense of claustrophobia anyway. But the fact that Burton and Taylor had such a notoriously tumultuous offscreen relationship (they were married to each other in real life — for the first time) made their on-screen barbs seem that much more severe. Nominated for 13 Academy Awards, it won five, including best actress for Taylor’s scathing performance. ■ “Blue Valentine” (2010): A heartbreaking drama about the disintegration of a marriage depicted in such raw, unadorned and sometimes

uncomfortably close fashion, it makes you feel as if you’re watching a documentary about a real-life couple. Michelle Williams earned the second of her three Oscar nominations here, although co-star Ryan Gosling deserved one just as much; each needs the other for their dynamic to work, and both deliver performances of convincing power. Director Derek Cianfrance skips back and forth in time between the idyllic days of their youthful courtship and the distance that divides them years later as working-class parents, once they’ve realized how different their goals are. Their overnight hotel getaway, a last gasp at salvaging their marriage,

is both hopeful and heartbreaking. ■ “The War of the Roses” (1989): Because we had to have a comedy in here somewhere — even the blackest of black comedies — to keep ourselves from getting too terribly depressed. Michael Douglas and Kathleen Turner reteam with their “Romancing the Stone” co-star Danny DeVito, who also directs, for a film that couldn’t be more different (and more bereft of romance). As Oliver and Barbara Rose, Douglas and Turner tear each other and everything around them apart. Calling this a messy divorce would be an understatement; what happens to the couple’s opulent mansion more closely resembles a war zone. As much an indictment of the conspicuous consumption of the era as it is a cynical depiction of modern love. ■ “I Am Love” (2010): A vibrantly gorgeous film about a marriage slowly,

quietly dying. The versatile and chameleon-like Tilda Swinton shows yet another side to her staggering talent here, speaking fluent Italian (and even a little Russian) as the gracious and impeccably dressed wife of a Milanese industrialist. She would seem to have it all with her husband and three children in their palatial home — until she realizes she’s not happy. A young chef catches her eye and helps her rediscover the woman she used to be, inspiring a climactic departure of operatic proportions. Italian director Luca Guadagnino’s retro-styled melodrama recalls Visconti and Sirk in its lush trappings, but Swinton’s formidable presence at the center always keeps things grounded and real.

Hundreds audition for film based on Faulkner novel ‘Dying’ Associated Press

JACKSON — Hollywood returns to Mississippi to bring a William Faulkner novel to life on the big screen. WLBT-TV reports auditions were held Wednesday at Jackson’s New Stage Theatre for James Franco’s version of “As I Lay Dying.” Other open casting calls were held in Canton at the Corner House on Friday and a third was held Saturday,

all to packed crowds. On Wednesday, New Stage Theatre was packed as hundreds braved the heat for a chance to appear in the film based on Faulkner’s story about a Mississippi family. “I’d like to be in the movie business ... That’s why I’m jumping on it because there’s not many opportunities for this here in Jackson,” said Joshua Bobst, of Jackson. University of Southern

“I’d like to be in the movie business ... That’s why I’m jumping on it because there’s not many opportunities for this here in Jackson.” Joshua Bobst Jackson resident Mississippi student Hannah Jones drove from Hattiesburg hoping for a part.

Horoscopes Sunday, August 12, 2012 BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Creators Syndicate

The Gemini moon has people talking. Whether they are saying much is a different matter. The important part is that they are sharing. With each exchange, we get the sense that we’re not alone and that what we do has an effect on others. So, mindfulness can be the result of seemingly mindless chatter. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Romance is in the air, but revealing too much and going too fast might just spoil it. Be sure to go slow and steady, no matter how thrilling and heartfluttering you find your potential partner. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). While trying to make a job easier, you risk inadvertently making it more difficult. Take time to organize your efforts before you act, and you will avoid this phenomenon. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). There will be those people who can’t appreciate your efforts. It’s not their fault. They have never made similar efforts, so they have no comparison. Continue undaunted. CANCER (June 22-July 22). By keeping up with basic self-care and maintenance, you can manage stress before it comes. Getting enough rest and exercise, as well as proper nutrition, will keep you strong. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You’re in a strong position now. People sense that you don’t really need to push forward, and that you couldn’t care less either way. Because you are willing to stand back or bow out gracefully, you

are offered more. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Looking for beauty in your environment is not a shallow pursuit. There is great power in beauty. Witnessing it could be just the thing that causes a breakthrough in spiritual awareness. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Sensitive issues come into the open. Should they be explored? Unless you can do so without coming across as judgmental, probably not. Tolerance is an oft-underrated virtue. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). A sweet mental breeze comes to sweep the air. Clouds lift. You can see what you’re dealing with. What was once foggy becomes completely clear. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You are usually mindful not to talk about what doesn’t pertain to the people around you. But you could break this rule to excellent effect today, as you’d be surprised what people find relevant. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You do not wish to passively respond to whatever life throws your way. You take control of matters, realizing that what you give will strongly influence what you get. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You live on a spinning rock. At any given time, your closest neighboring planet is at least 25 million miles away. Given the precarious balance of life, you proceed with every intention of being as self-reliant as possible. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). You won’t gamble with what’s precious to you, but you may take a calculated risk. Calculated risk-taking includes a plan for what will happen if the first endeavor doesn’t work out.


“A friend sent it to me kind of as a joke and he was really surprised to see that I actually was gonna

come try out, but you just never know these opportunities don’t come that often so you have to take advantage,” said Jones. Casting director Matthew Morgan, a Canton native now based in Toronto, Canada, said he was thrilled to be choosing talent in his home state and hometown. “We want to capture the authenticity of Mississippi accents, the various faces across our state.

So we’re excited to fulfill several roles, not only just background and extras but a lot of principle roles and feature people with local Mississippians,” said Morgan. For those who showed real promise, there will be call backs for speaking roles and a test on video. Franco is set to direct and act in the film, based on Faulkner’s 1930 work. The movie is to be filmed in Canton.

We’re a medium consumers gladly invite into their homes. Did you know newspapers are the primary medium for advertising information? In 2011, we out-ranked ads in the mail, television and even the internet. In fact, we’re a medium that is invited into thousands of homes in Mississippi each and every week. With 1.5 million readers in our state, newspapers are a great investment for consumers and the businesses who want to reach them.

There is power in print.
