City board begins budgeting process BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

The Corinth Board of Aldermen held its first budget work session Tuesday to discuss the preliminary budget figures for fiscal 2013. The tentative budget timeline puts the public hearing during the regular meeting at 5 p.m. on Sept. 4 and approval of the budget on Sept. 11. The board reviewed proposed budgets submitted by the department heads, requests from outside agencies and a

breakdown of possible pay increases for city employees with some emphasis on increasing the lower end of the pay scale. Pay rates for city employees were unchanged in the FY 2012 budget. City Clerk Vickie Roach said assessed property values for the city have not changed, so 1 mill will again produce about $85,000 in revenue. If Corinth residents vote in favor of the Future Fare program next Tuesday, property taxes will rise by 12 mills.

Among the various departments, some capital expenditures are on the table, including three patrol cars for the police department and an administrative computer upgrade. In outside agency allocations, it appears little will change from FY 2012 funding. The board tentatively added the American Red Cross to the list at $3,000, and Mayor Tommy Irwin said he is asking the Tupelo-based chapter to consider reestablishing a Corinth office. Roach said the FY 2012 bud-

Farmington hosts Civil War events BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

Organizers of the 150th Annual Battles of Farmington and Corinth reenactment say this year’s sesquicentennial event should be the biggest ever. “For Farmington, Corinth and Alcorn County it’s our turn for the 150th — and we’re getting a lot of response because of that,� said Farmington Mayor Dale Fortenberry. Hosted by the Blue-Gray Alliance and sponsored by the Farmington Heritage Committee, the event will be held Thursday, Sept. 13, through

In other business: The board approved athletic event general admission ticket prices for the new school year, including increases to $5 for basketball and football. Volleyball will also see an increase, while soccer will have an admission fee for the first time. â–  Trustees accepted a $1.9 million 21st Century Community Learning Center Grant in partnership with Kemper and Coahoma counties. The funds will be spread over five years. The board also accepted a dyslexia grant from the Mississippi Department of Education totaling $105,326 over three years for materials and professional development. â–  Childress updated the board on construction projects throughout the district. The high school field house is near completion with flooring expected to be installed this week and the weight equipment to follow. The facility includes built-in wood lockers. At the middle school, the roofing and door projects continue. Doors that will remain have been refinished, along with interior wood. The front exterior doors are being returned to their original look with a bronze color. At the high school, new doors and windows will be installed after hours and on weekends. â– 

The Corinth School District expects to complete the transfer of one vacant school building and begin the sale process on two others within the next few weeks. Superintendent Lee Childress said the Easom Outreach Foundation appears to have worked out its final issues at the former South Corinth/ Easom campus and should be ready to complete the deal within about two weeks. The purchase price was not disclosed because the transaction is not complete. Easom has been giving portions of the campus fresh paint and other improvements in preparation for community center programs. It served as a participating site in the school district’s summer feeding program. The district’s board of trustees is ready to move on the sale of the East Corinth and West Corinth elementary buildings upon the closing of the South Corinth deal. Childress said the district has tried to work with any interested parties and that “everybody has had ample time� to express an interest in the vacant facilities. The district will notify a couple of groups that have rented the facilities — West Corinth Baptist Church and the courthouse pickers.

McClamroch and her 2-yearold daughter, Ava, will appear on the season finale of “Toddlers & Tiarasâ€? come Aug. 29. The TLC Network's reality show will be broadcast at 8 p.m. CST. “The last show usually goes out with a bang,â€? said the mother of three. “I just hope we aren't that bang.â€? A six-person crew spent two days filming at the family home as Team Ava, which also consist of grandmother Helen Gillentine and Gillentine's sister, Doris Pittman, prepared for the “Rock Around the Clockâ€? pageant held in Gatlinburg, Tenn., during late April. “They filmed 33 hours and will probably show 15 minutes,â€? said McClamroch with a laugh. Ava's episode was originally scheduled to be shown in November. “We are real excited they are going to show it early,â€? said Ava's mother. “I think it's an experience she will never forget even though she is only 2.â€? McClamroch couldn't “pass up the opportunityâ€? to depict pageants in a positive light. “I want people to see that side of pageants,â€? she said. “We like to win, but we are graceful losers too ‌ it's just like sports in that you can't win them all.â€?

The Alcorn County Patriots Tea Party group will host a three-county rally tonight at the American Legion post on Tate Street. Beginning at 5:30 p.m., the “Grillin’ With the Patriots� event is the local Tea Party group’s kick-off to the election season. “We’re not doing this because we’re a bunch of radicals, but because we don’t want people to be complacent during this election,� said Charlotte Doehner, chairwoman of the Alcorn County Patriots. “We’re trying to get people excited about getting out to vote in the upcoming election and to take responsibility for our votes.� Doehner said the focus of the rally will be the need for

voters to take a more active interest in how the country is being governed, and that voting is only one part of civic responsibility. After voting, she said, it is important to keep up with the candidates to know if they are voting according to their promises and stated values. The rally will include three speakers. Jeppie Barbour is the older brother of former Gov. Haley Barbour. He is a retired businessman and politician and served a term as the mayor of Yazoo City beginning in 1968. Sen.

Murphy, Anderson, Badfinger headline River Run BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

It’s almost time to make a Tennessee River Run. Darryl Worley’s Tennessee River Run concert will bring David Lee Murphy, John Anderson, Badfinger and Black Oak Arkansas to stage with Worley in downtown Savannah, Tenn., on Saturday, Sept. 15. Throughout his career, Worley has produced over 20 hit singles — including three number 1s, chart-topping albums and sales in the millions. For a decade he has been a mainstay of modern country music, with singles including “I Miss My Friend,” “Have You Forgotten?” and “Awful,

Beautiful Life.” For his upcoming album, “One Time Around,” the 47-year-old singer and songwriter said he was trying to recreate some of the same “substance” of his first album. “That album was pretty straightforward country, and it had some really great songwriters’ songs — well-crafted and clever but with substance,” said Worley. “I also wanted something uplifting and fun that sounded different and had great grooves.” David Lee Murphy’s “Dust on the Bottle” and “Party Crowd” have become country radio staples. Both are from Murphy’s debut album, “Out With a Bang,” the best-

selling debut by a male country artist in 1995. He is one of Nashville’s most in-demand songwriters. His songs “Living in Fast Forward” and “Live a Little” (Kenny Chesney), and “Big Green Tractor” (Jason Aldean) all climbed to the top of the charts. From their humble roots in New South Wales to their rise to fame as “The New Beatles,” Badfinger has remained one of England’s most beloved bands. Their hits in-

clude “Without You,” “No Matter What,” “Day After Day,” and “Baby Blue.” Appearing on the scene in 1971, Black Oak Arkansas were pioneers in the guitar-driven rock sound that would become known as Southern Rock in the hands of bands like Lynryd Skynyrd and Molly Hatchet. Their signature song, “Jim Dandy to the Rescue,” is a cover of the LaVerne Baker classic that was suggested by Elvis Presley.

Born in 1954, country music legend John Anderson is known for the songs “Swingin’,” “Black Sheep,” and “Straight Tequila Night.” He has charted more than 40 singles. His career has spanned more than 30 years from his first single “I’ve Got a Feelin’ (Somebody’s Been Stealin’)” in 1977. Worley started the annual Tennessee River Run in an effort to serve the region he calls home. Proceeds from the River Run benefit the Darryl Worley Foundation, which supports a variety of organizations, including Le Bonheur Children’s Medical Center and the Darryl Worley Cancer Treatment Center. Tickets are $30 until

the day of the show and $35 at the gate. They are available at the Darryl Worley Foundation Office in downtown Savannah, the Hardin County Conventions & Visitors Bureau and all the banks in Hardin County. Tickets can also be purchased by credit card at www. tnriverrun.org or by calling 855-484-3877. Admission for children ages seven to 12 is $15, and children six and younger enter free with a paying adult. Gold Circle Seating is $100 and available in advance only. More information about the Tennessee River Run is available on the event’s Facebook page and www.tnriverrun.org.

she does when she watches the show.” Since being filmed, Ava has competed in one other “Toddlers & Tiaras” pageant. She won the 0-5 year-old face division in an event in Oklahoma. “We had a ball during the filming and we met new friends because of it,” said Jessica. “The ones behind those cameras are really good people.” Although Ava was featured, her mother and grandmother could be the ones stealing the show.

“I am sure they shot the comedy routine of mother and I,” said Jessica with a laugh. “We have a good time no matter what we are doing … mother is ready to sign another contract for next season.” The family plans a “Toddlers & Tiaras” party with friends the night of the showing. “I'm just going to laugh because I knew what we were getting into,” she said. “Ava is so full of personality that will put a smile on your face.”

from Tippah County and Tishomingo County have also been invited. “Everyone is invited. We want as many people as we can get to come out,” Doehner said. Tea Party membership is not restricted to

members of any specific political party, Doehner explained. The group believes in small government, less spending, a balanced budget and a nation that is governed according to constitutional principles.

McNairy commissioners table action on referendum BY JEFF YORK Special to the Daily Corinthian

SELMER, Tenn. — An unhappy group of county commissioners tabled a request from the McNairy County Board of Education to put a referendum on the November ballot during their meeting on Monday night. The request would have allowed voters to approve the extension of the wheel tax and an increase in sales tax to pay for a school building program. Commissioners did agree to meet in a special joint meeting between the school board and county commission on Monday, Aug. 20 at the McNairy County Courthouse. The hope is an agreement could be reached that would allow the commissioners to approve at their Sept. 4 meeting. Deadline to get the measure on the ballot

is Sept. 6. “If we have a good meeting on Monday with the school board, we still have time to get the referendum on the ballot in November,” said McNairy County Mayor Wilburn Ashe. “The commissioners agreed to move the September meeting up one week to vote again on the referendum.” Ashe said he only received a copy of the school board’s proposal on Monday afternoon and the county attorney noticed a problem with wording of the proposal. “It took a special act of the legislature to approve the wheel tax,” said Ashe. “We would have to vote on a new wheel tax and not just extend the present wheel tax.” Frank Lacey, chairman of the McNairy County Board of Education, presented the request to the

Deaths Paul D. Brown

commissioners. He told the commissioners the project cost would be $22 million for building elementary schools at Adamsville and Selmer. The school board believes a $20 wheel tax and a half-cent increase in the sales tax would help pay the school debt over a 30-year period. McNairy County’s wheel tax will expire during this fiscal year when the debt is retired from the McNairy County Justice Complex. Ashe pointed out the school board numbers did not include the infrastructure cost, land cost for the Selmer school and road improvements that would be needed with the building of two schools. The commissioners voted unanimously to table the vote on the referendum to show they needed additional time to study the issue.

The event will be managed by an all-volunteer staff. According to Fortenberry, there are still a few open slots for volunteers, and the event’s organizers will “take anybody we can get.” The first Farmington reenactment was a small event held in 2007. It has been held each year since and doubling in size each year (with the exception of 2009 when it was rained out). With the battle on a month away, registration for reenactors is picking up. Already 22 artillery

pieces have registered, with participants hailing from all of the surrounding states and Texas. At this point 17 states are represented in the infantry, artillery and cavalry. “It’s going to be a little bit bigger than in 2007 when we started with 40 people,” the mayor said with a grin.

Corinth, Miss.

Letters to the editor Spending some now on Corinth — or a lot later To the editor: I am a Corinthian. I was born and reared here and have many fond memories. After living in Memphis for the last 17 years, I am thrilled to call Corinth home again! Being away caused me to long to raise my son in Mississippi. Corinth has a lot to brag about — our strong public school, cost of living is reasonable, low crime, Southern charm, a growing hospital, and most importantly, the warm and friendly people. I am saddened when I brag about Corinth to most outsiders and all they know about Corinth is what they see driving down U.S. Highway 72. Corinth is rich in history and rich in people, and I want everyone to see what I see. Come shop, come eat, come play in Corinth — come spend your money here. Like any small or large city, we must have a plan for the future. We must first update the drainage and ensure the piping system is updated so we keep our citizens safe especially during storms. We must take care of our current streets by repaving so kids can ride bikes without falling in a pothole. We must tear down abandoned residential and commercial buildings to keep crime out and make our town look better. We must ensure all streets are visibly marked and on every street. We must clean up U.S. Highway 72 and do a better job of creating various entrances to encourage people to visit. I realize we are all on a budget and every penny counts, but I feel it is like making home repairs. We either spend some now or a lot later. I am so encouraged with Corinth and I really feel we are on the brink of something great. I would like to give my thanks to Mayor Tommy Irwin and the Board of Aldermen for creating the Corinth Future Fare program. One of my favorite quotes is from John D. Rockefeller. It says, “Don’t be afraid to give up the good to go for the great.” Let’s continue to make Corinth great! David W. Dixon Webster Street, Corinth

Let’s support the plan to improve Corinth To the editor: I want to express my support for Future Fare. We have many needs in our city that must be addressed. Often in the past we patched things instead of doing them the right way. We have many of our streets in desperate need of repair. The city is filled with dilapidated houses that need to be torn down. Future Fare will make much more money available to clean up. As we try to get new business to come to Corinth, we need to make good impressions on those looking at us as a place to invest. Let’s support this plan to improve our city. James Eley Fillmore St., Corinth

Prayer for today Lord God, help each of us to find our way of serving you so we can make music that delights you. In Jesus’ name we pray. Amen.

A verse to share Jesus said, “I have told you these things, so that in me you may have peace. In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” — John 16:33 (NIV)

Occupy Wall Street paved the way BY WILLIAM A. COLLINS Super-rich Don’t hear our woes; They attend, To cars and clothes. The Occupy movement seems somewhat subdued these days. That’s largely because the 1 percent is ready for them. Consider how Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel prepared for the May NATO conference in the Windy City, which drew countless Occupy protesters: He outfitted his troops with new laws, new military equipment, and new surveillance gear — and authorized them to make old-fashioned trumped-up arrests. And while Occupy Wall Street and other branches of this new movement have brought attention to our nation’s rampant inequality, where do you go next to address the concentration of extreme wealth in the hands of too few individuals? It’s shattered both our economy and our democracy. But there’s no congressional committee in charge of that. Sure, President Barack Obama himself has dipped into the debate over inequality. First, he called for every American to have what he called “a fair shot.”

More recently, he ridiculed Mitt Romney’s tax proposal during an address to supporters in Stamford, Connecticut as “Robin Hood in reverse,” or “Romney Hood.” But really tackling the problem? That’s probably above his pay grade. In an earlier era, we had a president born to privilege who helped weave the fabric of America’s safety net. But unlike Franklin D. Roosevelt, Romney isn’t interested in addressing the challenges our nation faces because of extreme inequality. He’d rather hide behind’s his wife’s saddle, complaining that the media is picking on her for being into million-dollar, Olympic-contending dressage horses. The Occupiers smartly chose to first camp out on Wall Street, rather than Pennsylvania Avenue. The big banks are the center of the problem, so why not simply confront them on their own turf? Activists rightly guessed that the coverage would be better in Manhattan, where the media is less inured to protests than their jaded brethren in Washington. By now, however, the Big Apple’s reporters are bored with flamboyant efforts to shine a light

on the power our outsized banks wield. Of course, the scourge of inequality harms all Americans, not just activists residing in media-saturated cities. And it’s only one of a panoply of crises. Median family income is declining, the foreclosure epidemic rages on, we’re still exporting manufacturing and service-sector jobs at a brisk rate, health insurance remains out of reach for millions, highly profitable companies are declaring war on their unions, Romney’s advocating a tax plan that would cut taxes on the rich and raise them on the rest of us, and public schools and college students are being squeezed by spending cuts. No wonder thousands of disgusted citizens have taken to the streets. Since young people are the bestequipped to camp out in the rain, they tend to lead the charge, especially if they’re stuck with big college debts and no job prospects. In fact, total college debt now exceeds total credit card debt. Can you imagine what would happen if a movement grew to stop paying? Anyway, to foment serious change in the face of militarized police depart-

ments and a media that increasingly caters to the 1 percent, the Occupy movement needs more allies. Even peaceful revolutions require song writers, bloggers, political operatives, and upper-crust dissidents. Not to mention more people on the streets. But most Americans aren’t yet comfortable on the streets. They have no sufficiently hated target like Egypt’s Hosni Mubarak or Syria’s Bashar al-Assad. And while millions are suffering, most of us haven’t been evicted or foreclosed on. This spring, preparing for the day when we will finally be ready, Occupy and its allies ran hundreds of activist training sessions, getting the protest infrastructure all lined up and fired up. But when will we see really huge crowds out there? How impoverished will we have to be before we join in? Beats me, but Occupy has beaten the trail for us, mapped the course, and is impatiently waiting. (OtherWords and Daily Corinthian columnist William A.

Anti-Ryan smears ignore the truth Democrats believe fervently in the folly of Paul Ryan’s ideas, yet somehow can’t speak about them truthfully. They are confident they can destroy Ryan -- not because they think they can win the debate over his proposals on the merits, but because they are certain they can distort those proposals with impunity. Mitt Romney’s inspiring (and inspired) choice of the Wisconsin budget maven as his running mate had commentators on both sides welcoming a clear choice for the country. Romney had done us a favor, they said, in ensuring such a stark clash of visions. The League of Women Voters would approve. This Hallmark sentiment is nice, though naive. The battle of ideas will be as unsightly and dishonest as the battle over Bain Capital. If Democrats will lie about Mitt Romney killing a woman, it’s only a matter of scale to lie about him unloosing a near-genocidal assault on America’s seniors. Immediately upon Ryan’s selection, Obama campaign manager Jim Messina released a statement that recalled author Mary McCarthy’s put-down of left-wing

playwright Lillian Hellman: “Every word she writes is a lie, including ‘and’ and Rich ‘the.’” Lowery Messina scored Ryan National for his “budReview get-busting tax cuts for the wealthy” (except that there aren’t tax cuts, budget-busting or otherwise), for bringing to an “end Medicare as we know it by turning it into a voucher system” (except there’s no voucher, and Medicare benefits would stay exactly the same), and for “shifting thousands of dollars in health care costs to seniors” (except the Ryan plan doesn’t apply to today’s seniors, nor will it shift costs onto the seniors of the future). The Democrats never want to admit three things about Ryan’s Medicare plan. First, that it doesn’t affect anyone over age 55 and won’t kick in for another 10 years. Conceding this makes the job of frightening elderly voters trickier, so it is best ignored. Second, that the current version of the Ryan plan

gives future beneficiaries the option to keep traditional Medicare. They will choose among a menu of insurance plans, including a fee-for-service federal option, all of which will be required to offer at least the same level of benefits as Medicare now. The federal government will pay everyone’s premiums up to a level matching the secondlowest-priced plan in a given area. There’s no reason a beneficiary will have to pay more (although he can choose a pricier plan and pay the difference). Third, that Ryan and President Barack Obama cap overall Medicare spending at the same level. The president is adamant that the growth of Medicare is unsustainable — and rightly so. Everyone acknowledges the program is the foremost driver of our longterm debt. Both Ryan and the president use the same formula of roughly GDP growth plus inflation for setting Medicare’s global budget. The difference is that the president wants a bureaucratic board to get the savings through arbitrary limits on prices that ultimately will limit access to care, while Ryan wants to get the savings through

competition and choice. The Democrats’ demagoguery should be further crimped by the fact that they voted $700 billion in cuts in Medicare to fund Obamacare, not in the faroff future, but right now. Ryan preserved the cuts in his budget but set them aside for the Medicare trust fund. Mitt Romney wants to repeal Obamacare in its entirety, including the Medicare cuts. What the Ryan plan offers, most fundamentally, is a vision of a reformed entitlement state that won’t require massive new tax increases or debt to fund. For all the talk of the “radicalism” of his budget, it keeps taxes at a slightly higher level of GDP than they have averaged over the past several decades. Ten years from now, federal spending still would be at a higher level of GDP than it was at the end of the Clinton years. This vision — now at the center of the campaign — deserves a serious, honest debate, and will assuredly not get it. (Daily Corinthian columnist Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review.

State Briefs Associated Press

Southaven mayor seeks to block garnishment SOUTHAVEN — Southaven Mayor Greg Davis is seeking a temporary restraining order to prevent Mississippi Auditor Stacey Pickering from garnishing his paycheck to recover disputed debt. The Commercial Appeal reports the temporary order is part of a counter suit filed by Davis that also seeks to force Southaven to restore a $35,000 stipend the mayor had been paid for operating the city’s utility department. Aldermen cut the stipend in January. Davis wants a temporary restraining order to prevent Pickering’s office

from taking the mayor’s $3,700 bi-weekly paycheck. A status conference is scheduled Thursday. A hearing is next week in Hinds County Chancery Court. Pickering plans to garnish the mayor’s pay to recover about $73,000 in remaining debt that the auditor says Davis must repay to Southaven in misused city funds.

Wesson seeks blues marker for Stackhouse WESSON — Wesson city leaders want a place on the Mississippi Blues Trail. Mayor Alton Shaw tells the Daily Leader he’s optimistic about talks with the Mississippi Development Authority to put a Blues Trail marker honor-

ing Houston Stackhouse in Wesson. “It is pretty much a done deal,” Shaw said. Stackhouse, born Houston Goff in Wesson in 1910, achieved fame in playing with well-known blues artists, including Robert Nighthawk. The mayor said he’s been pushing to get Wesson on the Blues Trail for some time. “I’m trying to get some tourism through the trail,” Shaw said.Though a blues marker isn’t likely to create a booming tourist economy, Shaw hopes it might generate business for local shops. Locations for the marker are being discussed, including one site near the Old Wesson Public School.

NOTICE OF SPECIAL ELECTION, CITY OF CORINTH, MISSISSIPPI Notice is hereby given to the qualified electors of the City of Corinth, Mississippi (the “City”), that a special election will be held in the City of Corinth on Tuesday, the 21st day of August, 2012 for the purpose of submitting to the qualified electors of the City, the following proposition:

The school is being renovated and will become a community center. Shaw said there has been discussion of putting a small museum at the school site, and Stackhouse memorabilia might be featured. Shaw also has a personal interest in putting Wesson on the Blues Trail. “I love the blues,” he said.

Tupelo fall furniture market starts today TUPELO — The Tupelo Furniture Market officially begins Thursday and runs through Sunday and this year is the 25th anniversary. Market officials tell the Northeast Mississippi Dai-

ly Journal that there has been strong buyer registration and exhibitor interest this year. The market said earlier this month it expects its best attendance in nearly 10 years. Market Chairman V.M. Cleveland says more than 100 new exhibitors will show at the market, and seven companies expanded their showrooms. The market is open only to registered furniture buyers. Buyers already were making deals with larger exhibitors as early as Monday, but most buyers and dealers will arrive during the next couple of days.

Appeals Court rejects petition JACKSON — The Mississippi Court of Appeals has

rejected a petition from man originally convicted in 1977 of capital murder related to an armed robbery, kidnapping and slaying. Charles Sylvester Bell was originally sentenced to death in the slaying of D.C. Haden, but that was overturned by a federal appeals court in 1982. In 1984, Bell pleaded guilty to a new indictment of armed robbery as a habitual offender to avoid the death penalty. He was sentenced to serve 25 years on that charge and life imprisonment for the capital-murder conviction. A Forrest County judge dismissed Bell’s petition for post-conviction relief in April 2011. Bell had claimed that he shouldn’t have been indicted on the same charge twice.

US government launches new immigration program ALICIA A. CALDWELL & ANDRES GONZALEZ Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Young illegal immigrants are scrambling to get passports and other records in order as the Homeland Security Department starts accepting applications to allow them to avoid deportation and get work permits Homeland Security announced the details Tuesday of what documents illegal immigrants would need to prove that they are eligible for the Obama administration’s Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals. The announcement came a day before U.S. Citizenship and Immigration Services was set to begin letting people apply for the program. Hundreds of thousands of illegal immigrants potentially could benefit from the program, which President Barack Obama announced in June. The program is beginning just months before what promises to be a tight contest for the White House in which the Hispanic vote may play an important role. Obama has come under fire from Hispanic voters and others who say he hasn’t fulfilled a previous campaign promise to overhaul the nation’s immigration laws. The policy change could stop depor-

Students hold a rally at the University of New Mexico Wednesday in Albuquerque to encourage young illegal immigrants to apply for a new federal program aimed at allowing them to stay in the country. tations for more than 1 million young illegal immigrants who would have qualified for the failed DREAM Act, formally the Development, Relief and Education of Alien Minors Act, which Obama has supported in the past. Republican lawmakers have accused Obama of circumventing Congress with the new program in an effort to boost his political standing and of favoring illegal immigrants over unemployed U.S. citizens. Some, including House Judiciary Committee Chairman Lamar Smith, R-Texas, have called the policy backdoor amnesty and said they worry about fraud. “While potentially millions of illegal immigrants

will be permitted to compete with American workers for scarce jobs, there seems to be little if any mechanism in place for vetting fraudulent applications and documentation submitted by illegal immigrants,” Smith said Tuesday. At the Honduran Consulate on Tuesday, a line of people wrapped around the building before it was open for business, and the office was crowded for much of the day. Evelyn Medina, 23, got in line at about 6:30 a.m., and she wasn’t alone. With her passport in hand, Medina was all smiles as she walked out of the building just before 2 p.m., saying “Finally” as she clutched the document.

Romney says Obama just trying to ‘hang onto power’ BY JULIE PACE Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Republican Mitt Romney dug in Wednesday on his charge that President Barack Obama’s campaign is driven by “division and attack and hatred,” criticism aimed at cutting into Obama’s likeability and personal appeal with voters. In some of his harshest words yet against the president, Romney said Obama was “running just to hang onto power, and I think he would do anything in his power” to remain in office. Romney’s comments escalated an already acrimonious campaign fueled by negative and sometimes false advertisements, as well as personal insults from the candidates and their surrogates. Obama’s campaign said Romney’s fresh assertions seemed “unhinged.” Romney replied: “I think unhinged would have to characterize what we’ve seen from the president’s campaign.”

“These personal attacks, I think, are just demeaning to the office of the White House,” he added. The latest rhetorical scuffle erupted Tuesday after Vice President Joe Biden told a largely black audience in Danville, Va., that Republicans would seek to “unchain Wall Street” and “put y’all back in chains” by loosening Wall Street regulations. Biden later said he had meant to use the term “unshackled.” But he did not apologize, and he mocked the Romney campaign for showing outrage. In his interview Wednesday on “CBS This Morning,” Romney said: “I can’t speak for anybody else, but I can say that I think the comments of the vice president were one more example of a divisive effort to keep from talking about the issues.” Romney’s onslaught comes as polls show Obama with a narrow lead over his Republican rival less than three

Associated Press

Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney speaks during a campaign rally in Manassas, Va., on Saturday. Romney announced Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan (background left) as his running mate during an event in Norfolk, Va. months before the Nov. 6 election. On Saturday, Romney named Wisconsin Rep. Paul Ryan as his running mate, a pick aimed at energizing his party’s conservative base. Now Romney, straying from his campaign’s efforts to stay singularly focused on jobs and the economy, is targeting Obama’s greatest strength — his likeability. Every major poll in the past two months has found Obama’s favor-

ability rating in positive territory, while Romney’s languishes at about even or worse and has deteriorated in some recent surveys. Some of Romney’s efforts to chip away at Obama’s likeability have focused on negative ads run by the president’s campaign and a super political action committee supporting him. Priorities USA Action ran a commercial suggesting Romney was personally

JOE’S SHOES

responsible for the death from cancer of the wife of a man who worked at a steel plant that was bought and subsequently shut down by Romney’s venture capital firm, Bain Capital. “If you look at the ads that have been described and the divisiveness based upon income, age, ethnicity and so forth, it’s designed to bring a sense of enmity and jealousy and anger,” Romney said Wednesday. The Romney campaign has run its own negative ads, including one widely discredited by independent fact-checkers that accuses Obama of gutting welfare reform. Romney’s team is also running an ad that criticizes Obama for raiding the Medicare trust fund, a charge the president’s team labeled dishonest and hypocritical. Romney was holding private fundraisers Wednesday in North Carolina and Alabama. The president was campaigning in Iowa on Wednesday, the final day of his three-day bus trip through the Midwestern swing state. First lady Michelle Obama was joining the president for their first joint campaign appearance since May.

Before Romney unleashed his striking criticism of the president’s campaign, much of the White House race this week had focused on Ryan’s austere budget proposals. Obama’s campaign was launching state-specific efforts to target lesserknown elements of Ryan’s budget, expanding beyond its opposition to the Republican vice presidential candidate’s Medicare overhaul. The developing Obama strategy comes as Romney and Ryan make clear they plan to campaign aggressively on Medicare, not run away from it. In person and in a television ad, the Republicans argued Tuesday that Obama is the one who cut spending for Medicare to put money toward his divisive health care overhaul. In states with large military and veteran populations — Florida, Ohio and Virginia among them — the Obama campaign plans to attack Ryan’s proposed cuts for veterans’ benefits and care, a campaign official said. The official was not authorized to discuss the campaign strategy publicly and requested anonymity.

Seven teams open season Friday BY H. LEE SMITH II lsmith@dailycorinthian.com

The games begin to count on Friday. Seven of the nine area high schools will kick off the 2012 season Friday night. With a pair of head-to-head battles included in the mix, the local action will be condensed into five contests. Corinth and Thrasher are both idle and will open their new campaigns on Aug. 24. Practice began on July 30 and many teams played in various jamborees last weekend as a final dress rehearsal. Three schools will break in new coaches on Friday,

including the initial headcoaching appearance of Walnut’s John Meeks. The former Wildcat player and assistant coach took over for Timmy Moore and will lead his alma mater into battle against Booneville. Jeff Boren will become the third coach in as many years as his Alcorn Central club hosts rival Biggersville. Charlie Dampeer will look to continue his resurrection act at McNairy Central as the Bobcats — 7-23 over the last three seasons — travel to Auburndale to face St. Benedict. The other two contests feature Byhalia at Tishomingo County and Baldwyn at Kos-

suth. Kossuth will take the field for the first official time since falling to eventual Class 3A state champion Charleston 58-0 in the third round of the playoffs. “We’ve put that game behind us,” said second-year KHS head coach Brian Kelly. “When you make it that far you’re going to run into good teams. “You hate to have a game like that as your first loss, but then again at the end of the season you can look back and see what you accomplished.” The Aggies responded in Kelly’s first season, reeling off 12 straight wins and claiming

the program’s fourth Division 1-3A title. Kossuth won 13 games combined the four previous seasons before the 1999 graduate assumed controls at his alma mater. Kossuth must replace 19 seniors from its record-setting squad. Next week’s slate will mark the head-coaching debut of Doug Jones as he leads the Corinth Warriors into their 100th season against rival Kossuth. Thrasher will open up at New Site as former Rebel and one-time co-head coach Lamart Harvey replaces Trey Rolison, who left after three seasons.

Communication will be the key to the game as the Biggersville Lions head to Alcorn Central on Friday night. With a week of defense focused practice, Coach Ronnie Lawson feels good about where his players stand. “They’re working hard, really catching on to everything we’ve asked them to do,” Lawson said. Wednesday afternoon’s

practice was no different, as the defensive side focused on pass coverage and reading offensive formations in a small time frame in order to defend the ball. Quarterback Blake Stacy ended practice with four completed passes and one interception, although he spent most of practice at corner while Darion Barnett took snaps at QB. “We were just giving Blake some time on that side,” Lawson said, noting that Barnett

wouldn’t see time at QB in a game situation. Though spending practice at QB, Barnett’s feet were still his strength as he rushed for a touchdown. While the offense remained strong in practice, Lawson feels that defense will be the Lions strength against the Golden Bears. “It’s really just communication. You’ve got to be ready for everything and communicate with each other,” Lawson said.

As for the pressure of a rivarly game, Lawson expects the atmosphere to help his team. “It’s the only county team we play, and this game means a lot to them. They see these kids when they go out on weekends. They go to church with them. It’s a big game for them,” Lawson said. Biggersville and Alcorn Central are set for a 7:30 p.m. kick off at the Alcorn Central Football Stadium.

Busted! Cabrera suspended 50 games The Associated Press

SAN FRANCISCO — Melky Cabrera was suspended 50 games Wednesday following a positive test for testosterone, putting an abrupt end to what had been an MVP-caliber regular season and throwing the San Francisco Giants’ playoff hopes into doubt. Cabrera leads the National League with 159 hits, and is second in batting average behind Pittsburgh’s Andrew McCutchen. Cabrera’s penalty was the first for a highprofile player since last year’s NL MVP, Ryan Braun, had his suspension overturned by an arbitrator last winter. “My positive test was the

result of my use of a substance I should not have used,” Cabrera said in a statement released by the union. “I accept my suspension under the Joint Drug Program and I will try to move on with my life. I am deeply sorry for my mistake and I apologize to my teammates, to the San Francisco Giants organization and to the fans for letting them down.” The suspension would extend into the playoffs if the Giants advance. Cabrera is batting .346 with 11 home runs and 60 RBIs in his first season with San Francisco and is five hits shy of 1,000 in his big league ca-

reer. Flashing bright orange spikes, he singled and hit a two-run homer last month in the National League’s 8-0 win in the All-Star game, earning MVP honors for the game and securing homefield advantage for the World Series. “It’s disappointing. Obviously, Melky means a lot to all of us, was part of our championship and provided some really good moments here,” Yankees manager Joe Girardi said. “It’s something that everyone has to deal with and it’s something baseball is trying to stay away from and it happened.” Cabrera could still win the NL batting title. He has 501

plate appearances, one less than the minimum required to win a batting championship for a player on a team playing 162 games. However, under 10.22(a) of the Official Baseball Rules, he would win the batting title if an extra hitless at-bat is added to his average and it remains higher than that of any other qualifying player. He will miss the final 45 games of the regular season and serve the remainder of the suspension at the start of next season or during the postseason, depending on whether the Giants make the playoffs Please see CABRERA | 9

and how far they advance. If the Giants wanted him to become active in the middle of a playoff series, they would have to play a man short from the start of the series until the suspension ends because rosters canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be altered mid-series. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were extremely disappointed,â&#x20AC;? the Giants said in a statement. Cabrera became the second Giants player to receive a drug suspension this season. Reliever Guillermo Mota was penalized for 100 games in May, becoming just the third major league player disciplined twice.

Arkansas defense emerging from offensive shadow The Associated Press

FAYETTEVILLE, Ark. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Ross Rasner noticed a startling change early in preseason camp. The Arkansas safety was accustomed to serving as a defense in name only during the skeleton scrimmage portion of practice, a time when the offense had its way under former coach Bobby Petrino. Then one night during an early August practice, Rasnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s instincts took over and he knocked the ball away from a receiver. Afterward, he paused and waited for criticism he had become used to in his three seasons under Petrino. All he heard were cheers of support. Times have changed around Arkansas under new coach John L. Smith and defensive coordinator Paul Haynes. The most

telling difference is in practices, where defensive players are now encouraged to hold their own with the Razorbacksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; high-powered offense. Over the weekend, the defense stopped the offense on five straight possessions at one point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The defensive guys arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afraid to make plays out there, where in the past you might lay off a receiver and not break up a pass because ...,â&#x20AC;? Rasner said, trailing off. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were an offensive-minded team, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no doubt about that, but with coach Smith coming in; heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a defensive coach, so thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a definite change already.â&#x20AC;? Arkansas has led the Southeastern Conference in passing for the last three seasons, a trademark of a Petrino-coached team. The Razorbacks led the conference in total offense

ATTENTION:

and scoring last season, but they were ninth in total defense â&#x20AC;&#x201D; another trademark of Petrinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time at Arkansas. The Razorbacks finished in the bottom half of the conference in defense in three of Petrinoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four seasons. They were last in each of his first two seasons before improving to fifth in 2010, with the lackluster defensive play often overshadowed by the offense and a win total that increased. Last seasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dropoff resulted in the departure of defensive coordinator Willy Robinson and the arrival of Haynes, who

previously served as an assistant at Ohio State. The former Kent State linebacker guided Arkansas during a Cotton Bowl win over Kansas State last season. Haynes is hoping a simplified approach will help defense become a calling card for Arkansas as it is for fellow SEC West programs Alabama and LSU. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we do more is what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to do the best,â&#x20AC;? Haynes said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, whatever we do the best, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll become that team. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not all about, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;This is our scheme and this is what we do.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about what our guys do best, and

thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what spring and fall camp are all about. Once it comes out, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be.â&#x20AC;? Linebackers coach Taver Johnson knows Haynes as well as anyone on the staff, having worked with him

at Ohio State since 2007. Johnson said the coaching staff worked throughout the offseason to â&#x20AC;&#x153;marryâ&#x20AC;? the old Arkansas defensive system with the new one, rather than a complete takeover.

Short Hops

Josh Hamilton, Texas With Hamilton back on track, the Rangers are winning at a better clip than they were over the previous six weeks. After suffering through a terrible slump in July, Hamilton is now working on a 10-game hitting streak. Last week, he batted .455 with three home runs and nine RBIs. He scored seven runs and showed much more patience at the plate, which produced a .538 OBP. With his bat warming up, Texas won four of six and now owns the best record in the American League.

Chris Sale, Chicago The White Sox continue to defy the odds and maintain a slim lead over the Tigers in the AL Central. Sale tossed eight strong innings vs. Kansas City on nine days rest. The White Sox have been giving the young lefthander some extra rest when possible. For the week, he totaled 14.2 innings and did not walk a batter while striking out 18. He won both starts, defeating the Royals and A’s.

Buster Posey, San Francisco For the second week in a row, Posey had a tremendous stretch for the improving Giants. The All-Star backstop followed up on his previous Player of the Week honor with a .421 batting average and .571 OBP. Posey slammed three homers and knocked in seven runs.

Jake Westbrook, St. Louis With just a little more than a month until his 35th birthday, Westbrook is quietly having the best year of his career — certainly his best since his All-Star season in 2004. The righthander has won his last five starts, and last week defeated the Giants and Phillies. In 13.2 innings, he allowed 11 hits and two walks. He struck out just seven, but recorded 18 groundball outs in the win over Philadelphia.

Shelby Miller, St. Louis The Cardinals had become concerned about Miller’s lack of effectiveness this summer. But in his last six starts, he’s posted an ERA of 3.16 with 35 strikeouts and only three walks.

Buster Posey

Fiery Baltimore manager Earl Weaver is ejected in both games of a doubleheader. Umpire Ron Luciano, notorious for his feuds with Weaver, ran the manager during the first game, then ejected him prior to the second game during a heated lineup card exchange.

Aug. 17, 1980 George Brett of the Kansas City Royals goes 4-for4 in a win over Toronto to raise his season batting average to .401. Brett would reach .407 on Aug. 26, but finish at .390 in his quest to become the first player to bat .400 since Ted Williams in 1941. From June 3-Aug. 29 — a span of 56 games — Brett batted .469 with 13 homers, 66 RBIs, 26 walks and only nine strikeouts.

Baltimore at Detroit Neither team expected to be in this position. The Tigers planned on running away with the AL Central by now, while the Orioles figured they would be checking out youngsters and playing the role of spoiler. The Tigers took two of three at Baltimore right after the break as Justin Verlander pitched eight shutout innings in the finale.

Pittsburgh at St. Louis The Cardinals won four of the first six games this season, but that was before Pittsburgh got its offense in gear. The Pirates took two of three at St. Louis later. Jake Westbrook, scheduled to start the first game, and Erik Bedard, the Pirates’ starter on Saturday, have both lost of two of three decisions in this series this year. St. Louis will visit Pittsburgh later in the month to wrap up the season meetings.

Los Angeles Dodgers at Atlanta This is a big week for the Dodgers. Entering their four-game series at Pittsburgh on Monday, the Dodgers were 9-1 in the Eastern Time zone this season.

Tampa Bay at Los Angeles Angels Just a few weeks ago there were nine runs total in a three-game set at Los Angeles. This is a key four-game series, and runs will be scarce once again.

Franchise Ranking Over Last 50 Years Ranking the 30 MLB franchises can be a dicey exercise. But that doesn’t stop me (although it probably should) from having a go at this. Franchises are ranked based on their bodies of work during the expansion era (1961present). Criteria? Winning is critically important, certainly, both in the postseason and consistently during the regular season. Winning division and league titles is weighed heavily. Tradition, attendance and franchise stability all play a role in this ranking. 1. New York Yankees Whether it’s championships, tradition, stability, or any criteria actually, the Yankees are on top. During the 51 years (through 2011), the Yankees have 20 division/league titles, and have won 90 or more games in more than half of the seasons. New York has won 30 postseason series, two more than any other franchise has played. 2. St. Louis Cardinals The Redbirds have the second-most appearances in the World Series and are runners-up to the Yankees with five championships. 3. Los Angeles Dodgers The men in blue played in the postseason in the 1960s, ’70s, ’80s, ’90s and ’00s. They failed to win a postseason game in the ’90s. 4. Atlanta Braves After a miserable run in the late 1980s, the Braves had an incredible streak from 1991 to 2005, winning their division every season played to completion. They played in four of five World Series, but won only one. 5. Baltimore Orioles The Orioles won three of the six World Series in which they played, and only two franchises have more than their five 100-win seasons. 6. Oakland A’s The four world championships tie the Dodgers for third, and the A’s are no stranger to the postseason. However, the Athletics have four 100-loss seasons, and their .503 winning percentage ranks 10th.

Whether they are led by Mickey Mantle, Reggie Jackson or Derek Jeter (left), the Yankees always contend. Yadier Molina is the leader of the next wave of stars in St. Louis.

7. Boston Red Sox The Sox haven’t won 100 (in this era) and 12 teams have more than their seven division titles. But the .533 winning percentage is third. 8. Cincinnati Reds If this were 1980, the Reds would rival the Yankees, but the Marge Schott Era and tough economics have kept this proud franchise from reaching the top. Few traditions match the Opening Day parade. 9. Philadelphia Phillies If this were 1975, the Phillies most certainly would be near the bottom of the NL teams. But they are one of only eight teams with double-digit division titles, with five of their 11 coming in the last five seasons. 10. San Francisco Giants Willie Mays, Willie McCovey and Juan Marichal made for a fun first decade in San Francisco, but led Giants to just one World Series appearance. 11. Minnesota Twins The Twins won the first two American League West titles, and since 1987 the franchise has had just two managers, won two World Series and eight division crowns.

12. Pittsburgh Pirates In the process of setting the North American team sports record of 19 consecutive losing seasons, the Bucs have been in a free-fall. 13. Los Angeles Angels Five of their eight division titles and their only World Series win have been under Mike Scioscia’s watch. 14. Detroit Tigers The Tigers are the owners of three 100-win seasons and four 100-loss seasons, including 119 in 2003. 15. New York Mets Only eight teams have a lower winning percentage. But only seven teams have won more postseason series. 16. Toronto Blue Jays The Skydome was once the place to be. More than 4 million fans enjoyed back-to-back World Series wins. 17. Chicago White Sox The White Sox own a .507 winning percentage and 10 90-win seasons, but only one World Series appearance. 18. Arizona Diamondbacks Arizona won its division in its second season, and celebrated a World Series title after their fourth year.

19. Houston Astros There was little to celebrate in Houston before the Killer Bs (Jeff Bagwell, Craig Biggio and Lance Berkman) showed up. 20. Kansas City Royals A wildly successful expansion team through the 1970s, but inequitable economics caused tough times in K.C. 21. Cleveland Indians All seven division titles have come since 1995. Prior to that, the Tribe never won as many as 90. 22. Miami Marlins It’s been all or nothing for the Marlins, mostly nothing. 23. Texas Rangers It’s easy to rank back-to-back pennant winners much higher. But only the Padres, Rays and Mariners have a worse winning percentage. 24. San Diego Padres Arizona has as many AL West titles in 14 seasons as San Diego has in 43. 25. Milwaukee Brewers From Seattle to Milwaukee and from the AL to the NL doesn’t do much for tradition. 26. Chicago Cubs The awesomeness of Wrigley Field keeps the Cubs from threatening the bottom. The Cubs have won just one postseason series. 27. Seattle Mariners Even with teammates Ken Griffey, Alex Rodriguez and Randy Johnson, the M’s have no World Series trips. 28. Tampa Bay Rays The Rays’ winning percentage is considerably worse than any other team, but two division titles in the Yankees’ division grab my attention. 29. Colorado Rockies The Rockies and Marlins are the only franchises without a division title. 30. Washington Nationals The Expos finished first for half of the 1981 season, earning their only spot in the playoffs. The first place standing in 1994 was all for naught.

There are currently five active players with at least 300 home runs and a .300 or better career average. Can you name all five?

Record for the Tampa Bay Rays when Evan Longoria is in the lineup. The Rays are a pedestrian 41-44 without their cleanup hitter. Since returning from a hamstring injury recently, Longoria has played exclusively at DH. St. Louis Cardinals with as many as 15 home runs, 54 RBIs and a .286 batting average. Only 16 teams have at least one such player with those numbers, and no other team has more than three. The record for the Boston Red Sox with aces Josh Beckett and Jon Lester starting. When other pitchers toe the rubber, the Sox are a much better 41-32. Extra-inning RBIs for Baltimore center fielder Adam Jones, three more than any other player. For the record, 16 of the rising star’s 24 home runs have either tied the game or given the Orioles the lead. Runs allowed by Ryan Dempster in his first two starts with the Texas Rangers. Acquired from the Cubs at the trade deadline, Dempster allowed just 13 runs over his last eight starts with Chicago. Runs allowed by the Cleveland Indians during a recent 11-game losing streak.

TRIVIA ANSWER: Alex Rodriguez, who is hanging on with a .301 average, and Albert Pujols are the usual suspects with these types of questions. Todd Helton and Chipper Jones at .304 are also in the club. Miguel Cabrera, who hit his 300th homer on July 22, is the fifth. Manny Ramirez and Vladimir Guerrero both qualify and played in the minors earlier this season, but are not currently active.

• Fans in Baltimore know a little something about one-run games. Especially winning onerun games. Since 1901, there have been just three teams to negotiate a season with a .725 or better winning percentage in one-games. The 2012 Orioles could be the fourth. The Orioles’ mark of 22-6 this season, if sustained, would establish the standard as the best alltime. The 1981 Orioles currently hold that mark with a 21-7 (.750) record. The 1908 Pittsburgh Pirates were 33-12 (.733) and the 1970 Orioles were 40-15 (.727). It’s no wonder Earl Weaver was always on edge. • Like Mike Quade before him, Cubs manager Dale Sveum is becoming more exasperated with ultra-talented shortstop Starlin Castro. The young player’s signs of immaturity continue to overshadow his immense potential. The latest incident came against the Reds as Castro was stealing second (five runs down) when Josh Vitters singled to right. Cincinnati second baseman Brandon Phillips successfully deked Castro into thinking Phillips was receiving a throw at second. Phillips’ relay from right fielder Xavier Paul beat Castro at third. There is no doubt that Castro’s talent belongs in the major leagues. After all, he led the National League with 207 hits last season. But his understanding of the nuances of the game and his concentration need more seasoning. After all, he led the NL with 29 errors last season. Maybe three weeks riding a bus in and out of Des Moines with the Iowa Cubs will be enough to flip his switch. For the Cubs’ sake (and for the sanity of their manager) the switch better flip soon.

Nationals Will they or won’t they shut down Stephen Strasburg? Reds Continuing to cruise without Joey Votto. Yankees Rangers and Red Sox visit the Bronx this week. Rangers Josh Hamilton heating up again with 12 RBIs in last nine games. Braves Lost just one series since the break. Pirates Easiest team to run on.

Even sold-out games don’t mean all the seats are sold The Associated Press

Sellouts in pro sports aren’t always so. In today’s world of social media, fans often point out perceived inaccuracies in attendance figures, perhaps posting a photo on Twitter of vacant seats to back up their beef. What gives? “I’ve been at places where they announce large crowds on a nice sunny day and the ballpark is half empty. That’s when people question, and I’m OK with somebody asking me that ques-

tion,” said Lou DePaoli, chief marketing officer for the Pittsburgh Pirates. Teams insist they’re not trying to sugarcoat a smaller-than-anticipated crowd. Like most of the other sports leagues, Major League Baseball tracks attendance by the number of tickets sold. MLB uses these figures in revenue sharing calculations, which help the game’s competitive balance between large- and smallmarket teams. “Attendance becomes

as much as an accounting sheet for us as anything,” MLB spokesman Pat Courtney said. Lee Igel, an associate professor in the sports business and management department at New York University, doesn’t quite buy this. “If they announced the true attendance number it’d look like there’s something wrong with the business that people aren’t showing up,” Igel said. Rewording the line in the box score from “attendance” to “tickets sold”

would appease some of the skeptics, perhaps even in Boston, where the Red Sox have claimed the longest sellout streak in the history of major American professional sports, a run that started in May 2003. The Boston Globe sent reporters to a game this spring to try to crack the case, finding unsold seats both online and at each Fenway Park ticket window well after the first pitch that night. Follow this example, especially if you liked word problems in math class:

The capacity at a certain stadium is 40,000 — so 40K is an official sellout. But with standing room tickets, 41,000 people can fit in the park before the fire department steps in. Let’s say 38,000 of the 40,000 seats have been sold. But another 1,000 standing room tickets were purchased by people looking for a cheaper alternative. And the team has also given away 1,000 tickets, including 800 to local charities and 200 comps to wives of players, friends of front office exec-

utives and high school pals of the home plate umpire. So 40,000 is the announced attendance figure for the night, an official sellout, even though 2,000 seats were still available. There’s points of potential confusion in all of this. Say 3,000 no-shows and perhaps 2,000 tickets were still for sale on the secondary market through various online brokerages that had already purchased the tickets, and another 1,000 seats belonged to seasonticket holders who couldn’t use them.

Children’s education can’t stop at classroom door DEAR ABBY: Wouldn’t it make sense if grade school teachers set aside time, weekly or monthly, to go over some very generic information that kids need to learn? I’m talking about things like how important it is to have pets neutered and why, how to manage money, and show them what the average dad earns and what it costs to run a household and support a family. It might help kids to grow up understanding that money isn’t free and get them past the “gimmes.” There are so many topics that ought to be introduced to youngsters at an early age -- how to groom themselves properly, be

exposed to a variety of music genres, t e a c h them how grandparAbigail ents can Van Buren use help even from Dear Abby small children. They could be taught to be aware of their surroundings, to realize that foul language isn’t an attribute and why it’s important to be pleasant. There are so many topics. Ten minutes a week on different topics would suffice. Why not? -- CHAPLIN, CONN., READER DEAR READER: Why not? Because teachers are

so overwhelmed trying to get their students to learn enough basic curriculum to pass the state mandated tests that they don’t have time! Reading your letter I couldn’t help but wonder whose children you are describing. All of the topics you mentioned are things children should learn from their parents. Where are those parents? AWOL? DEAR ABBY: I have just started back into the dating scene after my divorce and being single for five years. I had a vasectomy when I was married, and I’m wondering at what point I should tell prospective dates this information. -SNIPPED IN ONTARIO,

CANADA DEAR SNIPPED: Raise the subject as soon as a woman mentions the idea of wanting children. It should certainly be discussed before you have sex. P.S. Because vasectomies have been known to fail, and won’t prevent someone from picking up an STD, you should always make sure you and your partner are protected by using a condom. DEAR ABBY: Several years ago we bought a used sofa at a garage sale. It is now falling apart. A friend of mine in the hotel business offered me an almost new sofa bed from a room that was being redecorated. It matches the colors in our game room

Horoscopes BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Under the current arrangement of Venus and Uranus, love and relationships are not as carefree as they once were. People are quirky. Learning those quirks and determining how they might jibe with one’s own idiosyncrasies takes time, persistence and a belief that the effort will prove worthwhile. Tomorrow’s new moon is a fresh start. ARIES (March 21-April 19). No matter how busy you get, your creative whims are still important. They connect you with your heart. And now you could follow your muse to personal and financial rewards. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). It’s a fine time to plot your next professional move. Consider putting ideals over income. This will make you happy, and when you’re happy, you’ll either earn more or do more with what you earn. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Sometimes the show makes the show, and sometimes the audience makes the show. Today involves a team effort between performer and onlooker, each feeding a need for the other. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Procrastination only delays the inevitable. Steel yourself, and fulfill the obligation before you. Your weekend starts the moment you get it over with. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It’s not just you; the

heat has been getting to everyone. Don’t let your temper flare out of control in the face of summertime frustration. Keeping physically cool will help you keep your mental cool. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Someone in your neighborhood is in need of a helping hand, but is too proud to ask. Keep your awareness open. You’ll sense the silent need and offer a hand. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Too many evenings out and on the run have left you feeling frazzled. Time to unplug, go to the grocery store and prepare a good homecooked meal for yourself and your loved ones. SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). Your talent extends beyond what you’re comfortable doing. Just because you’re not an expert doesn’t mean you won’t do the best job. If there’s no harm in trying, go for it! SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). When old resentments surface, you may wonder what it’s going to take to make them go away forever. Each time you forgive, the hurt dissolves a little more. Eventually, it will be gone. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). Before you leap, aim at a soft landing place. If you don’t have time to look for such a thing before you leap, you’ll still scramble to safety, but it won’t be graceful. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). The ones you look up to need you, too. You don’t under-

stand the full extent of it, and you may not for many years, but you can trust that your interactions matter immensely. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Comparing your relationships will only drain your personal power. The attachments you form don’t have to be like everyone else’s to be valid, meaningful and just right for you. TODAY’S BIRTHDAY (Aug. 16). You’ll love and be loved. What could be better? Matters of responsibility lead to professional success. Whatever you dislike, handle it first and get it over with. Paradoxically, you will reach Easy Street because you’re willing to do what’s hard. December brings a spotlight. Financial luck is strongest in November and June. Aries and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 19, 3, 22, 48 and 6. CELEBRITY PROFILES: Madonna may very well be the quintessential Leo. Having arrived in New York City with zero connections and $35 in her pocket, she rose to superstardom on blonde ambition and a talent for capturing people’s attention both on stage and off. Madonna was born when the sun, Venus and Uranus were all in the sign of entertainment.

ing you better, I can’t say whether or not you’re cheap. But your wife should know that many people buy used hotel furniture, and selling it is big business.

perfectly. My wife said, “You can’t bring hotel furniture into the house. Yuck!” My logic is this: Why can’t our kids sleep on a hotel bed in our house if our other houseguests are using the kids’ rooms? We would use our clean sheets, and they sleep on the sofa beds in the hotels we stay in. My wife will sleep in a hotel bed that 100 percent of the guests sleep in, but she doesn’t want a bug-free sofa bed that about 5 percent of hotel guests have used in our home for occasional use.

In 1977, Elvis Presley died at his Graceland estate in Memphis, Tenn., at age 42. In 1987, 156 people were killed when Northwest Airlines Flight 255 crashed while trying to take off from Detroit; the sole survivor was 4-yearold Cecelia Cichan. People worldwide began a two-day celebration of the “harmonic convergence,” which heralded what believers called the start of a new, purer age of humankind. In 1991, Pope John Paul II began the first-ever papal visit to Hungary.

Ten years ago Major League Baseball players set a strike deadline of Aug. 30. (Both sides finally reached an agreement with just six hours to spare.) Terrorist mastermind Abu Nidal re-

portedly was found shot to death in Baghdad, Iraq; he was 65. Former United Auto Workers president Stephen P. Yokich died in Detroit at age 66.

Five years ago Jose Padilla, a U.S. citizen held for 3½ years as an enemy combatant, was convicted in Miami of helping Islamic extremists and plotting overseas attacks. (Padilla, once accused of plotting with al-Qaida to detonate a radioactive “dirty bomb,” was later sentenced to 17 years and four months in prison on the unrelated terror support charges.) A cave-in killed three rescuers in the Crandall Canyon Mine in Utah; the search for six trapped miners was later abandoned.

RELIGIOUS UNITY Think how wonderful it would be to have religious unity. “Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity” (Ps 133:1)! The new testament teaches unity and Christ prayed for unity. “That they all may be one; as thou, Father, art in me, and I in thee, that they also may be one in us: that the world may believe that thou hast sent me” ( John 17:21). Paul commanded unity of the Corinthians. “Now I beseech you, brethren, by the name of our Lord Jesus Christ, that ye all speak the same thing, and that there be no divisions among you; but that ye be perfectly joined together in the same in mind and in the same judgement” (1 Cor 1:10). The early church was able to practice unity. “And the multitude of them that believed were of one heart and of one soul: neither said any of them that ought of the things which he possessed was his own; but they had all things common” (Acts 4:32). There has never been a time when the religious world has been so woefully divided as it is today. In the 50’s there were about 257 different churches in our country. Now it is estimated that there are over 400 different religious groups. Instead of unity, we are facing more division. Churches need to have the attitude Christ had when He came down from heaven as revealed in John 6:38. “For I came down from heaven, not to do mine own will, but the will of him that sent me”. Many are now following men instead of following the will of Christ. It is strange that we have a system of weights and measures that we agree on, but cannot agree religiously. Why did Christ pray for unity, Paul command unity and the early church practice unity if unity is impossible? We must follow the teachings of the Bible in order to have religious unity. All who desire to go to heaven must follow Christ and His teachings because we will be judged by His word. “He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day” ( John 12:48).

Some below poverty line donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t qualify for Medicaid BY CARLA K. JOHNSON AND KELLI KENNEDY Associated Press

MIAMI â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Sandra Pico is poor, but not poor enough. She makes about $15,000 a year, supporting her daughter and unemployed husband. She thought sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be able to get health insurance after the Supreme Court upheld President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health care law. Then she heard that her own governor wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree to the federal plan to extend Medicaid coverage to people like her in two years. So she expects to remain uninsured, struggling to pay for her blood pressure medicine. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You fall through the cracks and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing you can do about it,â&#x20AC;? said the 52-year-old home health aide. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It makes me feel like garbage, like the American dream, my dream in my homeland is not being accomplished.â&#x20AC;? Many working parents like Pico are below the federal poverty line but donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t qualify for Medicaid, a decades-old state-federal insurance program. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s especially true in states where conservative governors say theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll reject the Medicaid expansion under Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health law. In South Carolina, a yearly income of $16,900 is too much for Medicaid for a family of three. In Florida, $11,000 a year is too much. In Mississippi, $8,200 a year is too much. In Louisiana and Texas, earning more than just

$5,000 a year makes you ineligible for Medicaid. Governors in those five states have said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll reject the Medicaid expansion underpinning Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health law after the Supreme Courtâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s decision gave states that option. They favor small government and say they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford the added cost to their states even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delayed by several years. Some states estimate the expansion could ultimately cost them a billion dollars a year or more. Many of the people affected by the decision are working parents who are poor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but not poor enough â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to qualify for Medicaid. Republican Mitt Romneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new running mate, conservative Wisconsin congressman Paul Ryan, has a budget plan that would turn Medicaid over to the states and sharply limit federal dollars. Romney hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t specifically said where he stands on Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s idea, but has expressed broad support for his vice presidential pickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposals. Medicaid now covers an estimated 70 million Americans and would cover an estimated 7 million more in 2014 under the Obama health lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s expansion. In contrast, Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan could mean 14 million to 27 million Americans would ultimately lose coverage, even beyond the effect of a repeal of the health law, according to an analysis by the nonpartisan Kai-

ser Family Foundation of Ryanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2011 budget plan. For now, most states donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t cover childless adults, but all states cover some low-income parents. The income cutoff, however, varies widely from state to state. Most states cover children in low-income families. Manuel and Sandra Picoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 15-year-old daughter is covered by Medicaid. But the suburban Miami couple canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford private insurance for themselves and they make too much for Floridaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Medicaid. Manuel Pico, a carpenter, used to make more than $20,000 a year, but has struggled to find work in the last three years after the real estate market collapsed. He occasionally picks up day jobs or takes care of the neighborâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yard. Sandra Pico would like to work full time, but canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford to pay someone to watch her 34-year-old sister, who has Down syndrome. â&#x20AC;&#x153;No matter how hard I work, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not going to get anywhere,â&#x20AC;? Sandra Pico said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not rich, you just donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have it.â&#x20AC;? In San Juan, Texas, 22-year-old Matthew Solis makes about $8,700 a year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; too much to qualify for Medicaid in that state. Solis, a single father with joint custody of his 4-year-old daughter, said he works about 25 hours per week at a building supply store making minimum wage and is a full-time college student

at the University of TexasPan American. He recently sought medical care for food poisoning, visiting a federally funded clinic. But he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see a doctor regularly because he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t afford private insurance. The new health law allows young adults to remain on their parentsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; insurance until age 26. But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help Solis, whose father is uninsured and whose mother died of leukemia when he was 8. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I voted for him (Obama) because he promised we would have insurance,â&#x20AC;? Solis said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m pretty upset because I worked for Obama and I still donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have coverage.â&#x20AC;? His governor, Rick Perry, like Picoâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s governor, Rick Scott, is rejecting the Medicaid expansion. So Solis too is out of luck unless his circumstances dramatically change. In all but one of the states where governors are rejecting or leaning against the expansion, the income level that disqualifies a parent from Medicaid is below the federal poverty line. Only in New Jersey, where Gov. Chris Christie has said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leaning against the expansion, is Medicaid available to parents with incomes at the poverty line and slightly above. New Jersey will cover a parent making $24,645 in a family of three. Most states base Medicaid eligibility for parents on household income and how it compares to

the federal poverty level, which was $18,530 for a family of three in 2011, the year being used for easier state-by-state comparisons. In Louisiana, the eligibility cutoff for a working parent is 25 percent of federal poverty, or $4,633 for a family of three. In Nevada, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 87 percent of the federal poverty level, or $16,121 for a family of three. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been the range in states where governors are likely saying no to expanded Medicaid. In contrast, states where governors have said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll expand Medicaid are more generous with working parents. The Medicaid eligibility cutoff ranges in those states from Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $13,527 to Minnesotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $39,840. To be sure, some states with generous coverage for parents have been forced to cut back. Illinois, facing a financial crisis, ended coverage last month for more than 25,000 working parents. Even so, the state still covers working parents with incomes slightly higher than the poverty line. The national health lawâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Medicaid expansion would start covering all citizens in 2014 who make up to roughly $15,400 for an individual, $30,650 for a family of four. The federal government will pay the full cost of the Medicaid expansion through 2016. After that, the states will pick

up 5 percent of the cost through 2019, and 10 percent of the cost thereafter. Why would a governor say no? These state leaders are in favor of smaller government. In principle, they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the federal government to expand â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even if that expansion would help their own citizens. Also Medicaid is costly, taking a huge bite out of budgets already. And they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to be on the hook for paying any more of the tab even if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s years down the road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need the federal government telling us what to do when it comes to meeting the needs of the citizens of our states,â&#x20AC;? Florida Gov. Rick Scott wrote recently in an opinion piece for U.S. News and World Report. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need Washington putting states on the hook for future budget obligations.â&#x20AC;? Also, many conservatives view Medicaid as a wasteful, highly flawed program, akin to no health coverage. Many doctors across the country wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t treat Medicaid patients because the payments they receive are so low. Medicaid, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single largest insurer, is a state and federal program created in 1965 as a companion program to welfare cash assistance to single parents. Today, the elderly and disabled cost nearly 70 cents of every Medicaid dollar, not the stereotypical single mother and her children.

Penn State University to host national child sex abuse panel Associated Press

STATE COLLEGE, Pa. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Penn State University is holding a national child sex abuse conference as it seeks to rebound from the

scandals involving former assistant football coach and convicted child molester Jerry Sandusky. The Child Sex Abuse Conference: Traumatic

Impact, Prevention and Intervention will be held at the Penn Stater Conference Center Hotel on Oct. 29 and 30. Speakers will include

         

 

Sugar Ray Leonard, a former professional and Olympic champion boxer, who has revealed he was abused as a child, and Elizabeth Smart, a

Utah woman who was abducted from her home in 2002 at age 14 and sexually abused during her nine months in captivity. President Rodney Er-

ickson says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Penn State has made a commitment to becoming a leader in the research, prevention and treatment of child abuse.â&#x20AC;?
