Aldermen to consider liquor vote Supporters of a referendum on liquor sales present petitions Tuesday BY BRANT SAPPINGTON

Corinth aldermen will consider setting a special election for a city-wide referendum on the sale of liquor at their regular meeting on Tuesday night. An agenda for Tuesday’s regular meeting of the board of aldermen released late Friday

lists consideration of the certification of the petition seeking the vote and consideration of a resolution setting a special election for the vote among the items to be discussed. Supporters of a vote on the liquor issue have been gathering signatures since September and now have the required 2,400

signatures on their petitions to force a citywide vote. The effort is seeking a vote on whether or not to permit the sale of liquor within the city limits of Corinth. A new state law allows citizens in cities with a population of at least 5,000 people or which are the county seat and are located in a county

that is currently dry to petition for a referendum on whether to allow liquor sales only within the city limits. The petitions must include the signatures of at least 20 percent of the city’s registered voters, a number supporters have now reached in Corinth. The law requires the board

of aldermen to set an election on the issue once the required number of signatures is presented and certified. They must provide a notice of at least 30 days prior to the date of the election. Corinth’s referendum on the issue would most likely be held in December.

Election officials predict record turnout Tuesday BY BOBBY J. SMITH

Local election officials are expecting a big turnout for Tuesday’s general election and want to make the public aware of some new equipment that will be in place. The new electronic polling booths will be in place in half the 16 precincts in Alcorn County — Five Points, North Corinth, Jacinto, Central, Glen, South Corinth, Kossuth and College. They will be in place in all

of the precincts that are split for the school board elections, explained 4th District Election Commissioner Keith Settlemires. The electronic polling booths were also sent to other, non-split precincts to give voters a chance to get used to them. “Eventually it’s coming to this,” said Settlemires. “They have many advantages. They keep a paper poll you can double check, and in the time Please see ELECTION | 2A

Field trip introduces elementary students to Civil War Toy Store registration kicking off BY BOBBY J. SMITH

A group of Corinth Elementary School students spent a fun-filled and educational Saturday on a field trip to the Grand Illumination activities. Amy Chandler’s CES fourth grade class, along with some of the students’ siblings, made a day of the Grand Illumination activities. The kids learned about the Civil War from park rangers and living history reenactors, and even chipped in to help the volunteers place luminaries around the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center.

Beaver control signup underway BY STEVE BEAVERS

Landowners are getting help controlling the beaver population. In order to assist local farmers conserve timber and crops, beaver control sign-up is being done through the USDA Natural Resources Conservation Service. Registration runs through Nov. 30 at the conservation office. “It continues to be a big problem,” said Sandy

Mitchell with the Alcorn County Soil and Water Conservation District. “We felt the issues would drop off at some point, but we haven't reached that level yet.” A heavy beaver activity have caused landowners to suffer significant damage through the years. The damming of creeks by the animals has led to water covering prime cropland and timberland. “This is still a needed program,” said Mitchell.

“We had more people sign up last year than ever before.” Last year, 156 landowners took part with 266 beavers eliminated over 5,400 acres in Alcorn County. Since the program began, over 6,800 beavers have been trapped. Landowners may trap the animals themselves or use the services of a trapper. “We have a list of trappers if the landowners

need one,” added Mitchell. Landowners are asked to wrap each beaver’s tail and left front foot in clear plastic wrap or freezer bag and freeze until collection day. They will receive $12.50 for each tail up to the maximum amount set. Collection days will be held on bi-monthly intervals during the program. A schedule of collection days will be provided to all landowners approved

for the program. The collection program will begin January of 2013. Payments will be made to the landowners on the collection days or within 3-5 days. No juvenile or baby beaver tails will be accepted. Deadline to sign up for the program is November 30. “A lot of quality timber has been lost because of beavers,” said Mitchell. “The Board of Supervisors have been a great sponsor

in helping with the problem.” The Alcorn County Board of Supervisors has earmarked funds again this year for the purpose of controlling the population. The Alcorn County Soil and Water Conservation District administers the program. Interested landowners can come by the NRCS office at 3103 Mullins Drive to sign up or call Mitchell at 287-7223, Extension 3 for more information.


day. The program serves hundreds of children in Alcorn County each year, helping families provide Christmas gifts for their children. Foundation Executive Director Gary Caveness said they’re expecting another big year for the program as people throughout the area continue to struggle with the economic downturn. “There are a lot of hurting people out there. It’s probably even worse than last year,” he said. Registration sessions for those wanting to receive help through the program begin Monday and will be held each Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon at the foundation’s headquarters on Johns Street each week during November. There will also be an evening session set on Thursday, Nov. 29, from 6 p.m. to 7 p.m. for those unable to register during the day. No sessions will be held the week of Thanksgiving. Caveness said he can’t emphasize enough how vital it is that everyone who needs assistance from the

program register. The Toy Store plans for the number of people they expect to serve once registration is complete and it can be difficult to provide for anyone who comes in after registration is over. “It’s just very very important for everybody to register,” he said. Those registering for help should bring a photo ID; proof of residency in Alcorn County (such as a utility bill, rent or mortgage statement or other official paperwork showing where they live) and a social security card and birth certificate for each child they are registering. Caveness said with the huge need expected they are once again counting on the community to help them help others this Christmas. Last year the Toy Store had a budget of around $100,000 and they expect to need a similar amount to provide for the needs this season. They will also need volunteers to help with a variety of tasks both before and during distribution day on Dec. 6. Anyone interested in learning more about how to get involved should call

that precinct.” The new polling booths are also designed to eliminate clerical errors and speed the voting process. First District Election

Commissioner Bobby McDaniel said the machines will take at least three steps out of the process, enabling voters to cast their ballots in

roughly half the time it took before. On election day there will be two bailiffs at each precinct — one outside and the other inside. No loitering will be allowed within 50 feet of the polling place and no campaign literature or “politicking” will be allowed within 150 feet. Circuit Clerk Joe Caldwell predicts the Nov. 6 election will be one of the biggest Alcorn County has ever seen. Presidential elections usually have more partic-

ipants than any of the local or statewide elections, Caldwell said. And with over 1,400 absentee ballots already cast, it looks like it’s going to be a late night at the hospital. But the election will only be the end of a lot of hard work that has been going on for the last three weeks and county officials and employees prepare for Nov. 6. “All the commissioners and all the precinct workers have spent a lot of time getting everything ready for this election,”

said Settlemires. “It’s a big election and we want everybody to vote.” McDaniels expressed the election commissioners’ gratitude for the work done by the employees of Joe Caldwell’s office. “The clerks in Joe’s department are fantastic,” he said. “We couldn’t do without them.”

Today in History Today is Sunday, Nov. 4, the 309th day of 2012. There are 57 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Nov. 4, 1942, during World War II, Axis forces retreated from El Alamein in North Africa in a major victory for British forces commanded by Lt. Gen. Bernard Montgomery.

On this date: In 1862, inventor Richard J. Gatling received a U.S. patent for his rapid-fire Gatling gun. In 1884, Democrat Grover Cleveland was elected to his first term as president, defeating Republican James G. Blaine. In 1922, the entrance to King Tutankhamen’s tomb was discovered in Egypt. In 1924, Nellie T. Ross of Wyoming was elected the nation’s first female governor to serve out the remaining term of her late husband, William B. Ross. In 1939, the United States modified its neutrality stance in World War II, allowing “cash and carry� purchases of arms by belligerents, a policy favoring Britain and France. In 1952, Dwight D. Eisenhower was elected president, defeating Democrat Adlai Stevenson. The highly secretive National Security Agency came into existence. In 1979, the Iran hostage crisis began as militants stormed the United States Embassy in Tehran, seizing its occupants; for some, it was the start of 444 days of captivity. In 1980, Ronald Reagan won the White House as he defeated President Jimmy Carter by a strong margin. In 1987, 6-year-old Elizabeth (Lisa) Steinberg was pronounced dead at a New York City hospital in a childabuse case that sparked national outrage; her illegal adoptive father, Joel Steinberg, served nearly 17 years behind bars for manslaughter. In 1991, Ronald Reagan opened his presidential library in Simi Valley, Calif.; in attendance were President George H.W. Bush and former Presidents Jimmy Carter, Gerald R. Ford and Richard Nixon — the firstever gathering of five past and present U.S. chief executives. In 1995, Israeli Prime Minister Yitzhak Rabin was assassinated by a right-wing Israeli minutes after attending a festive peace rally. In 2008, Democrat Barack Obama was elected the first black president of the United States, defeating Republican John McCain.

Sidewalk Improvements

Kossuth has completed sidewalk improvements throughout the town. With the help of Wanda Christian, director of Northeast Mississippi Planning and Development, grant money and town matching funds, the town was able to improve the sidewalks around the town and to the Kossuth schools. The sidewalk improvements was the longtime vision of Jim Cliff Hughes, who served several decades as Kossuth Alderman, but was unable to see the completion of the project. The 2012 Kossuth Sidewalk project was recently dedicated to Mr. Hughes. Those on hand for the dedication were Hughes’ family, Sara Steiner, Dustin Null, Lori Null, Kossuth Mayor Don Pace, Margie Pace, City Clerk Randy Holt, Representative Nick Bain, Brooks Bain, aldermen Johnny Potts, James Allen, Jerry Strickland, Steve Jones, and Ken Rainey, Kossuth Fire Chief Adron Hodum, along with city engineer Bobby Scott.

Corinth, Miss.

Our View

There are many reasons to go vote There’s been much said in the national media and press about some important states in Tuesday’s presidential election. Mississippi isn’t on the list. It isn’t a “swing state” in the Republican challenger and ex-Massachusetts Governor Mitt Romney vs. Democrat incumbent President Barack Obama showdown for who will lead our country for the next four years. “Swing” is a reference to a key battle state, not the object we Southerners like to have on the front porch and sip our Mint Juleps. Another term given by the national media for Mississippi is a “flyover” state, meaning the candidates fly over it on their way to states with more key electoral votes. Before we give in to this notion our vote won’t count in Mississippi, and therefore, we shouldn’t even bother to go to the polls on Tuesday, we should give some thought to all the reasons to vote. ■ Presidential races are historic in nature, and therefore, we can all be a part of history. ■ Voting is a privilege we should hold dear in the free country in which we live. The United States of America is the greatest nation on earth. ■ We have a contested congressional race in Republican incumbent Alan Nunnelee vs. Democrat challenger Brad Morris, a former member of Travis Childers’ staff. Count the number of times the presidential candidates mentioned “Congress” in their speeches and you might realize your vote for congressman might be more important than your vote for president when you look at where you stand on the issues. ■ We have a contested school board race in the 2nd District. What’s more important than the education of our children? ■ We have contested races for county election commissioner in four of the five districts. In the first, second, third and fourth districts, the incumbent has at least one challenger. This is your representative in the local election process and your go-to person for issues and concerns. ■ We have a contested Mississippi Supreme Court District 3, Place 3 race. See you at the polls. Daily Corinthian

Prayer for today Lord, when we open our hands and hearts to the poor, your kingdom is at hand. Remind us that there is always enough to give to those who are in need. Make us generous today with the goods you have entrusted to us. Amen.

Debate over wisdom, reliability of electoral vote STARKVILLE — During these final days of the 2012 presidential campaign, the debate continues without ceasing over first the wisdom and reliability of the electoral vote versus the popular vote as a means to choose America’s president. For many Americans, there is a disconnect between their intrinsic belief that the candidate who wins a majority or plurality of the popular vote should win the election and the reality that we elect presidents in this nation through the electoral vote, not the popular vote The conventional wisdom on the electoral vote is that it ensures that a U.S. president has sufficient popular support spread drawn from a distribution that is geographically diverse enough to enable the chief executive to be effective in governing. A growing number of people disagree. Opponents of the electoral vote argue that the system favors rural, less populated states like Mississippi over more urban, heavily populated states like California or Florida. They argue that a Mississippian’s vote carries more electoral weight on a proportional basis than a Californian’s vote.

T h e n there’s the “swing state” argument against the electoral vote. In theSid Salter ory, a candiwould Columnist date win the presidential election by carrying just 11 states that comprise a winning 271 electoral votes: California (55 votes), Florida (27), Texas (34), New York (31), Illinois (21), Pennsylvania (21), Ohio (20), Michigan (17), Georgia (15), New Jersey (15), and North Carolina (15). Should that occur, it would be possible for a president with a significant minority of the popular vote to be elected. Finally, there’s the argument against the electoral vote that holds that third party candidates have virtually no chance of winning in the current “winner take all” system. Proponents argue that as a federal coalition of states, the Electoral College’s protection of the voice of rural, less populated states is not a detriment but an advantage. Proponents also argue that the “swing state” argument is bogus in that such a de-

velopment has never taken place. Even in the contested 2000 election, the so-called “swing states” only gave the winning Bush-Cheney ticket 111 electoral votes. Proponents meet the “third party” argument by maintaining that a strong two-party system ensures stability for the national government through the maintenance of a loyal opposition. Clearly, the rise of the Tea Party on the right and entities like the Green Party on the left indicate eroding support for that argument from both sides of the political spectrum. There have been serious attempts to abolish the Electoral College system, but the country at this juncture appears not to be ready to make that fundamental change. Looking over the last few presidential elections, one can find evidence to support the notion that the present system is worth keeping. In 2008, Barack Obama had an almost 10 million vote lead in the popular vote and got a landslide 365 electoral votes. In 2004, George W. Bush had a 3 million vote lead in the popular vote and 286 electoral votes. In 2000, one of the closest elections

in American history, Bush lost the popular vote by some 500,000 votes but won the electoral vote over Democrat Al Gore with 271 electoral votes to Gore’s 265. In 1996, Bill Clinton won a 379 vote electoral landslide but only garnered a plurality of the popular vote over Republican Bob Dole and independent Ross Perot. In 1992, Clinton took 370 electoral votes with a 43 percent plurality of the vote against Republican George H.W. Bush and independent Ross Perot. Bush the Elder won a whopping 426 electoral votes and a 53.4 percent popular vote majority in 1988 while Ronald Reagan grabbed 525 electoral votes and a 58.8 percent popular vote win over Walter Mondale in 1984. Still, in 2008, presidential candidates concentrated over two-thirds of their campaign appearances and advertising spending in just six states and 98 percent in just 15 states – surprise, surprise - the ones with the most electoral votes.

Obama is ‘cooling out’ the voters Confidence men know that their victim — “the mark” as he has been called — is eventually going to realize that he has been cheated. But it makes a big difference whether he realizes it immediately, and goes to the police, or realizes it after the confidence man is long gone. So part of the confidence racket is creating a period of uncertainty, during which the victim is not sure of what is happening. This delaying process has been called “cooling out the mark.” The same principle applies in politics. When the accusations that led to the impeachment of President Bill Clinton first surfaced, he flatly denied them all. Then, as the months passed, the truth came out — but slowly. By the time the whole truth came out, it was called “old news,” and the clever phrase now was that we should “move on.” It was a successful “cooling out” of the public, keeping them in uncertainty so long that, by the time the whole truth came out, there was no longer the same outrage as if the truth had suddenly come out all at once. Without the support of an outraged public, the impeachment of President Clinton fizzled out in the

Senate. We are seeing another “cooling out” process, growing out of the terrorThomas ist attack on Sowell the American consulate in Hoover Institution Benghazi on Sept. 11. The belated release of State Department e-mails shows that the Obama administration knew, while the attack on the American consulate was still underway, that it was a coordinated, armed terrorist attack. They were getting reports from those inside the consulate who were under attack, as well as surveillance pictures from a camera on an American drone overhead. About an hour before the attack, the scene outside was calm enough for the American ambassador to accompany a Turkish official to the gates of the consulate to say goodbye. This could hardly have happened if there were protesting mobs there. Why then did both President Obama and U.N. Ambassador Susan Rice keep repeating the story that this was a spontaneous protest riot against an anti-Islamic

video in America? The White House knew the facts — but they knew that the voting public did not. And it mattered hugely whether the facts became known to the public before or after the election. What the White House needed was a process of “cooling out” the voters, keeping them distracted or in uncertainty as long as possible. Not only did the Obama administration keep repeating the false story about an anti-Islamic video being the cause of a riot that turned violent, the man who produced that video was tracked down and arrested, creating a media distraction. The White House had to know that it was only a matter of time before the truth would come out. But time was what mattered, with an election close at hand. The longer they could stretch out the period of distraction and uncertainty — “cooling out” the voters — the better. Once the confidence man in the White House was reelected, it would be politically irrelevant what facts came out. As the Obama administration’s video story began to slowly unravel, their earlier misstatements were blamed on “the fog of war” that initially obscures many events.

World Wide Web: To Sound Off: E-mail: email: Circulation 287-6111 Classified Adv. 287-6147

But there was no such “fog of war” in this case. The Obama administration knew what was happening while it was happening. They didn’t know all the details — and we may never know all the details — but they knew enough to know that this was no protest demonstration that got out of hand. From the time it took office, the Obama administration has sought to suppress the very concept of a “war on terror” or the terrorists’ war on us. The painful farce of calling the Fort Hood murders “workplace violence,” instead of a terrorist attack in our midst, shows how far the Obama administration would go to downplay the dangers of Islamic extremist terrorism. The killing of Osama bin Laden fed the pretense that the terrorism threat had been beaten. But the terrorists’ attack in Libya exposed that fraud — and required another fraud to try to “cool out” the voters until after election day.

Ratliff’s memories of life with domestic abuse BY LENA MITCHELL Associated Press

It has taken more than three decades for 39-year-old Kim Ratliff to share publicly the traumatic event that shaped the course of his life. Less than two weeks before his 7th birthday, Ratliff witnessed his mother’s death at the hands of his stepfather. Though Darryl McDonald claimed self-defense and was acquitted of 42-year-old Bertha McDonald’s murder, the details of the night of April 28, 1980, are as clear as ever in Ratliff’s mind. “She came home from her job on second shift and got us up,” Ratliff said. “She was taking us to his mother, the only person who could talk to him.

“She said ‘Run, he’s got the gun,’ and my sister ran out the laundry room door. Mama and I ducked into the living room and hid behind a curio cabinet. When she heard the door slam she thought he had gone outside too, but when she went in the hall he was there. He hit her in the head with the gun and threw her on the floor. He shot once in the air, then he shot her.” Ratliff was standing right there when it happened. Ratliff’s memories of life with Darryl McDonald include scenes of arguments between him and Bertha McDonald, his hitting and slapping her, and even his placing her in a tub of water fully clothed.

“She would say, ‘What have I done to deserve this?”’ Ratliff said. “When she was at work, he’d have his buddies in the house drinking and smoking, and clear them out before she got home. That night she came in and decided she’d had enough.” The fateful day came less than two weeks after Bertha McDonald sat down Kim and his 15-year-old sister Rena Ratliff and apologized for placing them in that situation, promising she would get them out. Ratliff, pastor of St. Mark Baptist Church in Corinth and projects coordinator for Corinth community planning and development, said women who live in an abusive household should get out

and into a safe place as soon as possible. “I want to tell women going through this, don’t make the assumption that you’re going to get out of it safely,” he said. “If you decide to get out, do it right then.” Witnessing the shooting wasn’t the worst Kim Ratliff endured that night. He watched Darryl McDonald drag his mother’s body through the dining room and into the kitchen, watched him smear his mother’s hand in her own blood then take that hand and smear the blood on the refrigerator door. “He had me call his mom and told me to tell her my Mama had killed herself, but what came out was ‘Darryl killed Mama,”’ Ratliff said.

From there Darryl McDonald dragged his wife’s body to the car and propped her up in the front seat, with Ratliff sitting behind trying to wake her up. They drove to Magnolia Hospital, where she was pronounced dead before being removed from the vehicle. Darryl McDonald claimed selfdefense, saying he and his wife had been wrestling for the gun when it went off. Darryl McDonald was placed in custody and later charged with murder, was tried and acquitted. “I testified as the only witness, but they said I was not a credible witness,” Ratliff said. “They tried to prove me retarded and did things in court to prove I was not cred-

ible enough.” Ratliff’s sister had made it across the street to neighbors when their mother was shot, and their two brothers did not live with them. Gary Ratliff had joined the military when Kim was 5 years old, and William Gregory “Greg” Ratliff was in a period of teenage rebellion, at that time living with their grandmother. Ratliff spoke with his siblings, but each wanted him to speak on behalf of the family. “I was so much younger they all worried about how all of this would affect me,” he said. It certainly shaped his life, Ratliff said. He went through his own period of teen rebellion.

Salmon swim across flooded road Associated Press

UNION, Wash. — A ooding river covered a road in Washington, allowing some migrating salmon to swim across the pavement.

Video from KOMO-TV shows one salmon didn't make it Wednesday when it was caught by a dog that walked away with its catch near Union, about 40 miles southwest of Seattle.

Agents in contact before shooting PHOENIX — A new report into a shooting that left a U.S. Border Patrol agent dead says three agents responding to an alarm were apparently in radio contact as they approached from opposite directions before opening fire on each other in the Arizona desert. A sheriff’s report released Friday says it was a clear night and the agents were on patrol separately when the call came in at about 1:30 a.m. Oct. 2 that an underground sensor aimed at detecting smugglers and illegal immigrants had been tripped. Agent Nicholas Ivie, 30, approached on foot from the north. The two other agents walked in from the south when Ivie apparently opened fire, eliciting a deadly barrage of return fire from his colleagues. Ivie was killed. Another agent was wounded. The third wasn’t injured. Questions had swirled as to whether the agents were in radio contact with each other in the rugged, hilly terrain where signals can be spotty. A communication breakdown could have led to the confusion and ensuing shootout. However, according to the preliminary report by the Cochise County sheriff’s office, which is investigating the case along with the FBI, the uninjured agent later told authorities “they were in radio communication with Agent Ivie.” “At one point she observed (Ivie) signaling them with his flashlight,” according to the report. The agent, whose name hasn’t been released, told investigators

“as they were walking up the trail she heard yelling and then observed muzzle flashes in front of her and heard gunfire.” “She drew her weapon and took cover,” the report states. The agent also said she thought she saw several people moving through the darkness and whispering after the shooting. The FBI declined to comment on the report, citing its own ongoing investigation. Authorities have said the agents were about 20 yards from each other when the gunfire erupted. Acting Cochise County Sheriff Rod Rothrock has characterized the shooting as accidental, adding he didn’t expect any criminal charges to be filed. The FBI has called it a case of friendly fire but has declined to comment on any other aspects of the investigation.

Obama orders fuel sent to areas hit by Sandy WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is ordering the purchase of up to 12 million gallons of unleaded fuel and up to 10 million gallons of diesel fuel for distribution in areas impacted by Superstorm Sandy to supplement private sector efforts. The Federal Emergency Management Agency said Friday that President Barack Obama has directed the Defense Logistics Agency to handle the purchase of the fuel. It will be transported by tanker trucks and distributed throughout New York, New Jersey and other communities impacted by the storm. FEMA Administrator Craig Fugate said the fuel purchase is part of efforts by governments, private

organizations and others to help the region recover from the weather disaster. This purchase is in addition to an emergency diesel fuel loan from the Energy Department’s Northeast Home Heating Oil Reserve.

Judge orders Watergate records unsealed WASHINGTON — Some documents sealed in the 1970s as part of the court case against seven men involved in the Watergate burglary must be released, a federal judge in Washington says. U.S. District Chief Judge Royce Lamberth said in a two-page order Friday that some materials being sought by a Texas history professor should be released. He gave the National Archives and Records Administration a month to review and release the materials. Luke Nichter from Texas A&M University-Central Texas in Killeen wrote the judge in 2009 to ask that potentially hundreds of pages of documents be unsealed. Nichter also runs a website cataloging secret recordings made by President Richard Nixon in the White House. He says the court records could help explain the motivation behind the 1972 break-in at the Democratic National Committee’s headquarters that ultimately led Nixon to resign from office two years later. Attorneys for the U.S. government said earlier this year that they would not oppose the release of some of the files. But government attorneys argued that three categories of documents should remain secret: those containing personal information, grand jury information and those regarding the content of illegally obtained wiretaps.

“My name is James Voyles and I would like to ask you the voters of The Second District to consider me as your school board member. For over twenty years I have been part of many kids’ lives and they have been part of mine. I have seen their struggles, heard their cries, and served them with passion. I believe being on the school board brings opportunity to serve our children, our teachers, and you the parents in greater ways. Children are our future leaders. They must have opportunity for success in every classroom and in extra curricular activities. I graduated high school in 1985 from Alcorn Central and I am grateful for the teachers that impacted my life in the classroom. I am thankful for the opportunity through sports, FFA, and the Vocational Technical Center that shaped me and gave me confidence to start the journey of adulthood. I want to work for your family as a school board member, we share the same passion. I want your children to be safe and to succeed in all they do. James Voyles values and visions for the future.

Thank you for your support!

Selmerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sibley Airport to get $440,000 BY JEFF YORK Special to the Daily Corinthian

SELMER, Tenn. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Robert Sibley Airport in Selmer will be one of 23 airports in Tennessee that will receive federal and state aeronautics grants totaling $16.3 million, according to the Tennessee Department of Transportation. McNairy Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s portion of the grant is for $440,000 to design and build a new fuel farm at the Selmer airport. The

federal government will provide $400,000 with the state and local funds contributing an equal share of $20,000. Airport manager Chris Tull said the fuel farm would be installed in the spring around the same time as the runway is undergoing renovations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The old fuel tanks are underground and our new system will be above ground,â&#x20AC;? said Tull. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This will help us in safety and re-

He said it would not take long to install the new tanks after engineering work is completed and then bids could be taken on the project. The airport manager said he would look at the most cost effective way of closing the old tanks. The options include removing the two tanks from the ground or draining the tanks and then filling them with sand.

Bulldogs blindsided by Aggies Associated Press

STARKVILLE, Miss. — Mississippi State’s vaunted defense isn’t looking so good these days. Texas A&M’s Johnny Manziel has a way of doing that to opposing teams. The redshirt freshman picked apart Mississippi State by completing 30 of 36 passes for 311 yards and danced around the No. 17 Bulldogs for 129 yards rushing and two touchdowns, leading the 16th-ranked Aggies to a 38-13 victory on Saturday. It was a crushing loss for the Bulldogs (7-2, 3-2 Southeastern Conference), who have dropped two straight. “That’s as bad of a per-

formance as I think we’ve had here,” Mississippi State coach Dan Mullen said. Tyler Russell completed 19 of 30 passes for 212 yards, one touchdown and one interception for the Bulldogs. LaDarius Perkins led the team with 42 yards rushing, and Arceto Clark caught five passes for 64 yards. A relative unknown before the season, Manziel is posting consistently terrific performances that are starting to generate whispers of Heisman Trophy consideration. He has certainly been the unquestioned star for the upstart Aggies. “He has a green light to make plays, some improvised, some called,” Texas

A&M first-year coach Kevin Sumlin said. He made those plays in bunches against the Bulldogs. Maybe the most impressive was a 37-yard touchdown run midway through the second quarter that pushed the Aggies’ lead to 21-0. The 6-foot1, 200-pound Manziel rolled right, and when he didn’t see an open receiver, weaved around multiple defenders on his way to the end zone. “He’s a great player,” Mississippi State linebacker Cameron Lawrence said. “He’s slippery. It’s hard to contain a guy like that. At times I thought we did a good job of containing him, but you let him get out one time

and it can be trouble.” Sumlin admitted the Aggies are still adjusting to their quarterback’s uncanny playmaking ability. It’s a good problem to have. “We’re lucky to have him,” running back Ben Malena said. “The play is never over. You’ve got to stay in the play and try to help him out any way you can.” Texas A&M (7-2, 4-2 SEC) has won all five of its road games this season. Christine Michael ran for 50 yards and two touchdowns, and Ryan Swope caught nine passes for 121 yards. The Aggies’ quick-tempo offense ran 97 plays and Please see BULLDOGS | 9A

NM State fades against Auburn BY JOHN ZENOR Associated Press

AUBURN, Ala. — The New Mexico State Aggies once again found themselves down by a mere touchdown at halftime, only to watch the game get away from them. This time, Auburn’s running game got going and the Aggies fell 42-7 on Saturday, dropping to 0-15 against Southeastern Conference teams. New Mexico State (1-8), which has lost its last eight games, trailed both the Tigers (2-7) and No. 22 Louisiana Tech just 7-0 at the half. They lost 2814 last week. “We were able to move the ball as an offense,” Aggies quarterback Andrew Manley said. “We just weren’t able to score. That’s been the story of our season so far. The defense came out and played good for us. They held (Auburn) to seven in the first half. It needs to be our job to score. “The second half, it just went downhill.” Tre Mason rushed for a career-high 152 yards and Onterio McCalebb added 113 and two touchdowns for the Tigers, who snapped a five-game losing streak. Linebacker Daren Bates returned a Manley fumble for a 62-yard touchdown for the Tigers, who picked up a much-needed win in the program’s worst start in 60 years with games against No. 7 Georgia and No. 1 Alabama looming. It was Auburn’s longest fumble return for a score since 1969. Manley completed 17 of 30 passes for 222 yards but was sacked four times. Austin Franklin gained 154 yards on seven catches, including a 51-yarder. “They didn’t do much to stop us; we just stopped ourselves,” Manley said. Auburn’s rushing outburst helped take pressure off freshman quarterback Jonathan Wallace in his first start and gave beleaguered fans something to cheer. The Tigers got season-highs in points and yards with 475. McCalebb’s eight rushes were highlighted by touchdowns of 38 and 7 yards. Wallace was solid in his starting debut and provided a spark for the nation’s 120th-rated offense after Mason fumbled the exchange on Auburn’s first offensive play. “We had a pretty good idea of what they were going to do because they had their freshman quarterback in,” Aggies defensive back Davis Cazares said. “We executed in the first half. “It was just an accumulation of things. They scored on the fumble return and that took the wind out of our sails.”

Yeldon TD leads No. 1 Alabama past LSU 21-17 BY PAUL NEWBERRY Associated Press

BATON ROUGE, La. — With Alabama’s hopes of a second straight national title hanging by a thread, A.J. McCarron shook off a dismal second half and guided the Crimson Tide right down the field. Talk about a Saturday night stunner in Death Valley. McCarron read an LSU blitz and flipped a swing pass to T.J. Yeldon, who did the rest on a 28-yard touchdown with 51 seconds

remaining that gave the top-ranked Crimson Tide a 21-17 victory over No. 5 LSU. Alabama (9-0, 6-0 Southeastern Conference) now has a clear path to the league championship game in Atlanta, and remains solidly on course to defend its national title in Miami. But this one was a struggle. Led by embattled quarterback Zach Mettenberger, LSU (7-2, 3-2) fought back from a 14-3 halftime deficit with an offensive performance that was nothing

like their dismal showing against the Tide in last season’s BCS championship game. Jeremy Hill scored on a 1-yard run late in the third quarter, LSU’s first TD against Alabama since 2010 — a span of nearly three full games. Then Mettenberger threw perhaps the best pass of his LSU career, hooking up with Jarvis Landry on a 14-yard touchdown that put the Tigers ahead 17-14 with just under 13 minutes remaining. LSU was on the verge of putting the game

away, driving into Alabama territory and forcing coach Nick Saban to call his remaining timeouts. But Drew Alleman missed a 38yard field goal, and McCarron took over from there. He completed three straight passes to put Alabama in scoring position. Then, when LSU brought a corner blitz, he got the ball away quickly to Yeldon. The freshman running back broke one tackle and faked out another defender, racing to the end zone for the winning score.

Murray’s 4 TDs lead Georgia past Ole Miss 37-10 BY CHARLES ODUM Associated Press

ATHENS, Ga. — One of Mark Richt’s oldest trick plays gave Georgia the lift it needed to remain on track for a shot at the SEC title. Aaron Murray threw four touchdown passes and No. 7 Georgia overcame a slow start to beat Mississippi 3710 on Saturday and move one win away from a spot in the Southeastern Conference championship game. Georgia (8-1, 6-1 SEC) trailed 10-0 before scoring 37 unanswered points. The Bulldogs can clinch the SEC East title and second straight trip to the conference championship game with a win at Auburn next week. “We know now it’s down to one game to win the right to go back to Atlanta,” Richt said. Murray pulled off a fake

handoff on a 66-yard touchdown pass to Marlon Brown for the Bulldogs’ first points. Richt, in his 12th season as Georgia’s coach, said he brought the play from Florida State, where he was offensive coordinator under coach Bobby Bowden. Murray pulled off the well-executed fake handoff to Todd Gurley, who was swarmed by Ole Miss defenders as Murray hid the ball with his back to the line. Murray then threw to Brown, who was standing alone near the 40 when he made the catch. Murray said he prepared for the play by watching film of former Georgia quarterback David Greene have success with his version of the fake. “I was going to text him this morning and tell him we were going to use it,” said

Murray of Greene. “I didn’t want to jinx us.” Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze said his defensive backs’ lack of experience showed on the play. “The first (touchdown) was just bad eyes,” Freeze said. “They were looking in the backfield instead of looking at your man. We have some freshmen back there who just got out of position. We missed some guys today. We’re very young back there, and they exposed that today.” Richt said the play provided a lift for Georgia’s players and the crowd of 92,746. “I think there’s no question about it,” said Richt, who added he could tell fans “were getting kind of antsy” with Ole Miss leading 10-0. “You could tell they were concerned about what was going on,” Richt said. Ole Miss (5-4, 2-3) used

blitzes to record five sacks in the first half. The defensive gambles left opportunities for Murray, who completed 21 of 28 passes for 384 yards with no interceptions and touchdown passes of 66, 40, 42 and 28 yards. “I love when teams blitz,” Murray said. “They really open themselves up to holes in their coverages.” Georgia linebacker Alec Ogletree had a safety, a sack and an interception. His twin brother, fullback Alexander Ogletree, had an 8-yard touchdown run. Georgia’s defense, coming off last week’s 17-9 win over then-No. 3 Florida, held Ole Miss to 234 yards, including only 55 in the second half. Damian Swann recovered two fumbles for Georgia. Jeff Scott led Ole Miss with Please see MURRAY | 9A

Pro Baseball



gained 693 total yards. Mississippi State had just 310 yards. Mississippi State’s defense had been one of the best in the SEC this season — especially in the secondary — but was blitzed early and often by the Aggies’ unpredictable offense. Manziel completed mostly short passes in the first half, but hit on a few long ones. When the Bulldogs dropped too far back into pass coverage, the speedy freshman gained yards with his feet. By halftime, Manziel had completed 18 of 22 passes for 164 yards and run for 82 yards as the Aggies grabbed a 24-0 lead. If there was any doubt about the outcome, Texas A&M cleared that up with the first drive of the third quarter, cruising 75 yards on nine plays and scoring on a 1-yard run by Michael to push the lead to 31-0. Now a little more than halfway through his first season at Texas A&M, Sumlin’s offense is operating with impressive efficiency. Over the past six weeks, the Aggies have scored 58 points on Arkansas, 59 on Louisiana Tech, 63 on Auburn and now 38 on the Bulldogs. The Aggies were balanced, gaining 361 yards on the ground and 332 through the air. The only knock against Manziel this season has been a tendency for turnovers, but he avoided them while Texas A&M built its early lead. His only mistake was a fumble into the end zone as he tried to stretch for a touchdown in the second half. By then, the Aggies had the game well in hand. Russell threw for just 29 yards in the first half and was stopped behind the line of scrimmage on the first drive by Texas A&M’s Damontre Moore, who leads the SEC with 11 1/2 sacks. By the time Russell had some success it was too late. He threw a 14-yard pass to Chad Bumphis in the third quarter and added a 4-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. “We as a team played very poorly,” Mullen said. “That’s 100 percent my fault. As head football coach, that all falls on my shoulders. In every phase, we played very poorly. I will give them credit. Their kids played very well. They have a good football team.”

Local Sons of Confederate Veterans Commander Larry Mangus (right) and Lt. Commander Dennis Brown helped out with placing the luminaries Saturday at the Interpretive Center.

National Park Service personnel got an early start on preparing the Interpretive Center grounds for the Grand Illumination on Saturday.


the Sons of Confederate Veterans. Many of his fellow members planned to help out after they finished with work on Saturday. “We’ll have a bunch of guys from the camp here to light them tonight.

Everybody likes lighting them,” said Larry. By participating in the Grand Illumination, Larry and Marilyn are honoring the memory of the soldiers who participated in the Siege and Battle of Corinth as well as the war in general — includ-

ing their own ancestors. The couple both have ancestors who fought on the Federal and Confederate sides of the war. “From a historical perspective it’s a really nice way to honor the folks that fought and died here,” said Larry.

Living history activities will continue at the Interpretive Center on Sunday, beginning at 9 a.m. with a church service and continuing through the day with discussions of camels in the Civil War, infantry firing demonstrations and discussions of uniforms

and equipment. For more information about activities at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center call 2879273. The Crossroads Museum at the Corinth Depot will continue its temporary Civil War-themed

exhibit today featuring locally found relics from the museum’s repository. The museum will be open today from 10 a.m. till 4 p.m. A small admission fee applies. For more information about the Crossroads Museum call 287-3120.

class learned about Old Douglas, the Civil War camel that was present for the fighting at Corinth in October 1862. “If you move more like a sloth than a monkey, he’ll be happy,” the camel handler told the class. “Just like with your camel at home.” The class learned about the conditions faced by soldiers in wartime Corinth from Park Ranger Charlie Spearman and how the bad drinking water in the area was more hazardous than the enemy’s rifles. Commanding officer Randy Brown and his men portrayed the 43rd Mississippi regiment, and demonstrated small arms firing and tactics for the

kids. They also opened their period camp for the students’ inspection and discussed the everyday life of the common Civil War soldier. “You learned to live on as little as possible, threw a lot of stuff away,” said Brown, “and hoped you could find a replacement blanket it the wintertime.” Following the activities at the Interpretive Center, the elementary students traveled down the road to the Crossroads Museum for a tour and picnic lunch. Then it was on to the Contraband Camp for a poetry reading and storytelling with Crossroads Poetry Project President Autry Davis.

The students learned about the accoutrements of the common Civil War soldier from members of the 16th Alabama regiment of living history reenactors.

Saturday’s field trip was part of an extensive unit in which the students have studied the Civil War. Local sesquicentennial activities have provided the young learners with many opportunities for some hands-on experiences. “We started with the Battle of Farmington and did the field trip there,” explained Chandler. “We’ve done a five-week unit on analyzing primary sources, debates and book reports. They’ve had so much fun.” Part of the day’s fun was spending time with the 43rd Mississippi Camel Corps — and its dromedary mascot. The

The story of Confederate surgeon George Phillips BY TOM PARSON NPS Ranger

There were plenty of tough jobs in the army during the Civil War. The life of a foot soldier, whether Union or Confederate, was no easy duty. Cavalrymen had to care for their four-legged partners as well as themselves and artillerymen were often called on to lift dangerously heavy loads. And being a teamster wasn’t a joy either. Those were the leather lunged “mule skinners” who drove the mules hitched to the wagons. Their colorful language was a testimony to the difficulties of that particular task. No, I think the most difficult job was being a surgeon in a field hospital. My hat’s off to those men who worked out in the elements to save the men as they were brought straight from the fight. Rain, sun, blistering heat or freezing temps, they operated under the worst of conditions and often within musket or artillery range of the battle. One of those stalwart men was the young Dr. George C. Phillips, Assistant Surgeon of the 22nd Mississippi Infantry. George was a handsome lad of 26 when he joined Company G, “The Black Hawk Rifles,” in Carroll County in September of 1861. (Yep, the same Carroll County Bobbie Gentry sang about in “Ode to Billy Joe.”) All of five and a half feet tall with blue eyes and blonde hair, he was a native Alabamian living and practicing medicine in Mississippi. He signed on as a private, but he was quickly promoted when it was learned there was an M.D. in the ranks. Phillips was technically the “assistant surgeon” of the regiment, but Surgeon W. Mosley had died of brain inflammation in April of ‘62, leaving Surgeon Jonathan Meares in the top post. Meares got sick after only a month and from that point on George was in charge. In 1902, while he was attending a reunion of his old regiment, he was asked to relate, in writing,

A reunion of the 22nd Mississippi Infantry. Dr. Phillips is on the left in the back row. his recollections of the great Battle of Corinth. He tactfully declined, stating his duties were in the hospital, not on the front lines and he would leave it to his comrades who carried the muskets to tell that story. He did tell of his own observations from the rear. “My field hospital was on a small creek immediately behind our brigade line of battle, where there was shade and water.” The site was probably beyond Cane Creek, about three miles from downtown off the Wenasoga Road. Dr. Phillips got together with the other regimental surgeons in his brigade and they set to work preparing for the flood of wounded soldiers they knew would be coming. They improvised operating tables out of boards and a door taken from a nearby farm house. Water was boiled and kept hot while buckets of cold water were placed close at hand. Rolled bandages and instruments were set out and soon they were ready. In the distance, they could hear the booming cannon and the crash of muskets. “By the time our crude preparations were finished, the wounded commenced coming in, those who could walk, on foot,

others in ambulance, some in wagons, as we had but few ambulances.” The 22nd Mississippi Infantry was in the brigade commanded by Brigadier General John S. Bowen, perhaps the most gifted and toughest brigade commander in the Southern army. He was a fighter and the results were grievously wounded and broken men. “Now came hard work for the surgeons,” explained Phillips, “first in the ligating arteries that were bleeding, cutting out bullets that could be felt, laying aside, often a hurried examination, those requiring a capital operation until the rush was over, splinting and bandaging broken limbs that might be saved.” The grisly work went on through the afternoon and continued into the night by candlelight. Eventually all of the men had been treated in some fashion and they were made as comfortable as possible, many lying on the bare ground with only a single blanket to cover them. Luckily it was a warm evening, a welcome result of the brutally hot day that had preceded it. At dawn the contest was renewed and the wounded again began to arrive at the field hospital. Fortunately for the overworked doctors, the brigade was

only lightly engaged on the second day of fighting and the number of casualties was far less than the day before. In the afternoon, the wounded were loaded on wagons and joined the retreat of Van Dorn’s army in the direction of Chewalla. Arrival at that sleepy little village meant more work for the medical types who had to change dressings and attend to men whose treatment had been postponed during the march. “I prepared to remove a man’s arm at the shoulder joint who ought to have been operated on the evening before, but we did not have the time. It was a dark night and the wind blowing, I had two sperm candles held by two men with their hats shielding the flame from the wind in spite of which, first one and then the other would be blown out. “The case was so urgent however, that I determined to operate, even under these difficulties. As the amputation was to be at the shoulder joint, no compression of the blood vessels could be maintained. So I with the understanding that Dr. McMillen, a large strong man, was to grab the lower flap, as soon as cut, with thumbs across it compressing the bleeding artery.”

Drawing of a Civil War field hospital. “The bone was shattered by a piece of shell so that I was forced to sweep the knife around to disarticulate the head, Mc’s thumb was in the way ‘hold on’ he says, ‘you are cutting my thumb,’ ‘I can’t stop,’ says I, ‘but damn it Phillips it hurts, you are cutting right into my thumb,’ says he, ‘Hold hard Mc says I, this man’s life is in your hand and you must not turn loose.’ Mc did hold, and the man’s life was saved, but Mc had a sore thumb for some time.” The wagon train of wounded men set out again long before dawn and arrived at Davis Bridge on the Hatchie River just in time to nearly be cut off and captured. A Union column out of Bolivar, Tennessee was in position to block Van Dorn’s retreat and the Confederate army was forced to find another place to cross the river. As the wagons set out again, Phillips saw a sight that wrenched his heart. “Here I witnessed one of the saddest scenes that I saw during the war, an old blind grandmother, her daughter and four little grandchildren, lived in a house around which the heaviest of the fighting was going on. They had fled and gotten into

the road filled with our troops, the daughter leading her blind mother and one of the little children, the other three holding her by the dress, and all crying.” There were several days of trials and challenges for Phillips before the wagons finally reached the safety of Holly Springs. George stayed with the army to the bitter end, surrendering with the remnants of the Army of Tennessee in North Carolina. He returned to his medical practice and in his old age moved to Akron, Ohio to live with his daughter. He passed away in 1927 and was returned to Mississippi for his final rest. His obituary read in part, “Dr. Phillips was a veteran of the Civil War, serving as a surgeon in the Confederate army, and there never was a more ardent supporter of their cause than the brave soldier who filled his post for the whole four years of suffering and strife.” Doctor George C. Phillips is buried in Odd Fellows Cemetery, Lexington, Mississippi. (Tom Parson is a National Park Service ranger with the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center.)

Acts of kindness helped start Pentecostal church in Tishomingo History of the Gospel Lighthouse Pentecostal Church, Tishomingo, Mississippi; Founding Pastor: William H. Burcham

Early years Born and raised in Prentiss County, Mississippi, Rev. William Hayward (W.H.) Burcham felt the call of God to begin a church in the City of Tishomingo. On a Wednesday morning in August 1970, without a penny in his pocket, Rev. Burcham began looking for a rental building to begin a home missions’ church. He soon located an empty building that belonged to James Glasgow. Although Mr. Glasgow, who lived in Paden, formerly rented the store front building in Tishomingo for $50 a month, he generously rented it to Rev. Burcham for $45 a month to be used as a church. Rev. Burcham agreed to rent the building, but since he was broke, he told Mr. Glasgow that he would return on Saturday to pay him. The following day, Rev. Burcham met Garvin Lambert, who mentioned that he heard that a church was going to be built in Tishomingo. Mr. Lambert wanted to pay the first month’s rent on

the building. At that point in time for Rev. Burcham, the gift of $45 RaNae to pay the Vaughn church rent was a miraHistorically Speaking cle. The foll o w i n g Monday, Rev. Burcham, his wife, Freda Barnes Burcham, and Gerald Barnes began cleaning the building. It had formerly been used as a pool hall, and previous occupants had spit tobacco juice on the walls and floor. Working together, the three cleaned and painted the facility to make it look as presentable as possible. After the building was cleaned, pews were needed to seat the congregation. After much praying, Rev. Burcham felt impressed one morning to get in his car and drive around. Leaving home, he traveled Highway 30 West to Hills Chapel, and then he turned left toward the south. After three or four miles, Rev. Burcham noticed a beautiful, new church building on the right. In the yard of this church, Candlers Chapel, there were several used pews that had been taken out of the old building. Rev. Burcham immediately stopped and

asked neighbors who he could contact about purchasing the pews, and he was advised to contact Clyde Shook, a deacon of the church. Rev. Burcham hurriedly went to Clyde Shook’s home, feeling that God had directed him that day. How disappointed he felt when he was told that a group of individuals had already made a deal to buy the pews! However, as he was leaving, Mr. Shook said, “Now, if they don’t show up by Saturday, I will just go ahead and sell them to you.” To Rev. Burcham, this would be one of the first miracles he would see in the new work at Tishomingo. Returning Saturday morning, the pews were still in the yard, and Mr. Shook sold the pews to Rev. Burcham for $350. Borrowing the money from the Iuka Guaranty Bank, the pews and other necessities were purchased and lovingly arranged in the church’s first home. The heat in the facility was erratically supplied by a big potbellied coal heater, and although the building was not a high-class facility, it was respectable. Rev. and Sis. Burcham were very happy that a new work for the Lord was beginning in the town of Tishomingo. The first service held in the storefront building in

downtown Tishomingo was on Sunday morning, August 23, 1970. Sis. Burcham played the accordion, and Rev. Burcham played the bass guitar to supply music for the service. A piano was loaned to the church. At a later date, the Bates Piano Company in Belmont, Mississippi, donated the church a piano. Rev. Burcham’s 11 a.m. message was taken from Matthew 11:14, and it was titled “Selling Out to God.” For the next few years, the church’s pastor, his family, and its members had to “sell out to God” to make the sacrifices needed to establish the church. From miracle to miracle, God always provided and supplied the needs of the church. A little more than a year later, land where the church is now located was purchased from John Poole. The place where the church now sits was previously a very high hill. A lot of dirt was moved and graded, but soon the task was completed. Cleston Barnes donated oak timber to build the rafters of the new building. All the church men gathered to cut trees. Addis Deaton handled the logging along with the help of Connie Mock and Kirk Riddle. Garvin Lambert sawed the logs in his mill at no charge. Will Henry Mc-

Neal hauled the lumber to the church, and after the wood dried, he picked it up and took it to Walden’s planer in Booneville. Mr. McNeal only charged the church for the price of gasoline it took to haul the lumber back and forth between the planer and the church. In the summer of 1971, construction began on the new building. Workers were hired to lay the blocks, and after that task was completed, Dugger Feltman and Rev. Burcham, along with a couple of hired workers, gathered one morning to build the rafters. Finally, the day arrived to raise the rafters. After arriving at the work site, Randle Jourdan was seen walking around the top of the block wall, ready to offer his assistance. When the men got ready to put up the rafters, they were extremely heavy. Dugger Feltman said, “Rev. Burcham, we might as well burn these things and go buy us some pine and build some more. It’ll be lighter, ’cause we’ll never get these things up.” They were excruciatingly heavy, but after a little laughter and some planning, arrangements were made and the rafters were put into place. The first service in the new building was held January 16, 1972. It might

not have seemed like much to a lot of people, but the Gospel Lighthouse congregation was proud of it! The church continued to grow and Sunday School rooms were needed after a year or two. Once again, the church didn’t have the necessary money. The possibility of building Sunday School rooms was discussed, but it was decided that the church couldn’t afford the project. Within two weeks’ time, however, an event occurred that Rev. Burcham considered another miracle from God. While visiting another church in Ripley, Mississippi, on a Wednesday night, there was an elderly man in attendance. This new convert was a recovering alcoholic, and it was obvious that he didn’t have much in life. His clothes didn’t look too good, but he got up that evening and played a musical rendition on his French harp. Rev. Burcham was working at a factory during this time, and he only had $5 in his pocket to last until his payday on Friday. However, while that man was playing the French harp, Rev. Burcham felt moved by God to give the last $5 he had to the elderly man. Please see CHURCH | 2B

church Continued from 1B

As Rev. Burcham sat in the service, he felt impressed that if he gave his last $5 to the elderly man, then God would supply the funds needed to build Sunday School rooms for the Tishomingo church. Rev. Burcham sat through the service, wrestling with his thoughts, knowing that it was only Wednesday night, and he needed money for gasoline, etc. After the service was dismissed, Rev. Burcham ambled toward the rear of the church, still arguing with himself about the money. Before exiting the building, however, he looked back and saw the elderly man standing in front of the podium, looking directly at him. Immediately, Rev. Burcham turned, approached the gentleman, and taking the

$5 he had in his pocket, stuck the money in the elderly man’s pocket. Tears immediately popped into the man’s eyes, and he began to cry. That was certainly payment enough for Rev. Burcham! The man looked at him and said, “Nobody’s ever given me anything before!” Returning home, Rev. Burcham felt that seeing the joy on the man’s face was reward enough for him. Early the following Sunday morning, while in the old trailer the Burcham family lived in alongside the church, a man pulled up out front and blew his horn. Rev. Burcham went out to the car, not knowing who he was or what he wanted. As he approached the car, the stranger said, “I heard you were going to build some new Sunday School rooms.”

“Well,” Rev. Burcham answered, “we had thought about it, but we’ve decided that we can’t afford it at this time.” The man said, “Well, I wanted to come over to help you out a little.” He began to write a check, and after pressing it into Rev. Burcham’s startled hands, he made his departure. Looking at the check after the stranger left, Rev. Burcham saw that he had written the church an $800 check to put toward the expense of the Sunday School rooms. To Rev. Burcham, this was a great miracle! That Sunday morning, the church rejoiced in unison. They could now begin construction on the Sunday School rooms. Then the strangest thing happened that afternoon. Rev. Burcham

heard a car horn blowing, and looking out the trailer window, he noticed the same man sitting in his car. His faith became weak, and he told his wife, “Oh, no, he’s back out there, and he’s probably come back after that check. He’s decided he doesn’t want to give us that money.” However, to his surprise, when Rev. Burcham approached the car, he noticed that the stranger was weeping. The man handed Rev. Burcham another check, saying, “I didn’t give you enough money this morning.” The second check was made out for $700. God had turned Rev. Burcham’s $5 into $1,500. This miracle certainly proved one thing to Rev. Burcham -- he could never out give God. Need-

less to say, it wasn’t long before the church had a Sunday School Department constructed with rooms to teach the word of God.

Present time Over a period of years, the church added a fellowship hall. The sanctuary was remodeled, and a gymnasium was built. The gymnasium also housed a larger fellowship hall and classrooms to begin a church school. Eventually, the gymnasium was remodeled to house the church sanctuary, and the kitchen and fellowship hall were moved back into the older church building. A beautifully decorated foyer and plenty of Sunday School rooms completed the structure. The church moved into its new facility in the fall of 2004, in time for its 34th anniversary service. Rev. Burcham was honored as the 2004 Outstanding Citizen of the Year by the Tishomingo Chamber of Commerce. In conjunction with that distinction, Rev. Burcham served as the Grand Marshal of the Tishomingo Christmas Parade on Saturday, Dec. 4, 2004. The Tishomingo Chamber of Commerce presented the award to Rev. Burcham at the annual Thanksgiving service in Tishomingo. Rev. Burcham has always been active in this city-wide service which welcomes all denominations and races. As the congregation present at the Thanksgiving

service rose to their feet in tribute, Rev. Burcham -- in his typically modest way -indicated that any success was God’s work, not his. The Outstanding Citizen of the Year award, in its sixth year, recognizes the people who have worked to make the community a better place to live. Rev. Burcham founded the Gospel Lighthouse Pentecostal Church in Tishomingo, Mississippi, and has remained its pastor. Anyone in the community in need due to sickness, personal loss, or tragedy will find Rev. Burcham there to assist in any way possible. He is a living example of the Good Samaritan. In addition to his work with individuals in the community, Rev. Burcham has always worked to make the community a better place to live. He always supports and participates in the activities of the community. More importantly, Rev. Burcham is a strong and steadfast man of God. His church family has the utmost respect for his honesty and integrity. He exhibits Christian principles on a daily basis. (The above information was obtained both from the Rev. William H. Burcham and, in part, from a November 2004 issue of the Belmont & Tishomingo Journal.

Museum opens balcony where Dr. King was shot Associated Press

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The National Civil Rights Museum in Memphis is closing for a year for renovations, but its biggest attraction is about to be accessible to the public for the first time. The museum was built around the old Lorraine Motel, where Martin Luther King Jr. was staying

when he was assassinated in 1968. Until now, visitors have been able to see the balcony where King was shot but not stand on it. The Commercial Appealreports the museum’s main building will close after Monday. Officials hope to open the balcony to the public on Nov. 19, and they are installing a lift for disabled visitors.

COPENHAGEN — Cycling through the heart of some European cities can be a terrifying experience as you jostle for space with cars, trucks and scooters that whizz by with only inches to spare. Thankfully for bicycle enthusiasts, a movement is afoot to create more room for cycling in the urban infrastructure. From London’s “cycle superhighways” to popular bike-sharing programs in Paris and Barcelona, growing numbers of European cities are embracing cycling as a safe, clean, healthy, inexpensive and even trendy way to get around town. Amsterdam, in the Netherlands, and the Danish capital, Copenhagen, are the pioneers of this movement, and serve as role models for other cities considering cycling’s potential to reduce congestion and pollution, while contributing to public health. The trend is catching on outside Europe, says John Pucher, a professor of urban planning at Rutgers University in New Jersey and co-author of a new book titled “City Cycling.” Pucher says urban cycling is on the rise across the industrialized world, though Europe is still ahead of the pack. “Americans make only 1 percent of their trips by bike compared to 26 percent in the Netherlands, 18 percent in Denmark, and 8-10 percent in Belgium, Germany, Sweden, and Finland,” Pucher told The Associated Press, citing official statistics. From airbag helmets to e-bikes, here are some the ways the bicycle renaissance has hit the streets of Europe:

ple-lane expressways for cyclists, but city planners believe they’re central to the bicycle revolution: They combine bike paths with bike lanes on regular streets to give pedaling commuters a smooth ride from the suburbs to the city center. London opened four “cycle superhighways” in 2010, which basically amount to a blue lane for cyclists on the edge of city streets. Copenhagen’s approach is more ambitious, seeking to keep bicycles and motor vehicles physically separated as much as possible. The Danish capital plans 26 such routes, building on bicycle-friendly features that have been in place for years. Stop lights are adjusted to the rhythm of bicycles, not cars. Intersections have foot rests and hand rails so that cyclists don’t need to put their foot down when they stop. The route is lined with air pump stations and trash cans that are tilted for easy access from the saddle.

Bike sharing Bike sharing, or “city bike,” services that offer bicycles for short trips in the downtown area have come a long way since the first large-scale program started in Copenhagen in 1995. That concept was simple: deposit a coin to release a bicycle from any of a number of bike racks across the city and get your coin back when you return the bike (not necessarily to the same rack). Less than two decades later, scores of bike-sharing programs have been launched in Europe and beyond, though most are not free. The most recent ones are high-tech, with customers using smart cards or even mobile phones to unlock bikes from docking stations. A milestone was reached when Paris introduced its “Velib” program in 2007, showing that bike sharing works also in a

major metropolis. With more than 20,000 bikes it’s the biggest system in Europe. U.S. cities including Washington D.C., Minneapolis, San Francisco and Boston now have bike-sharing programs. But the fastest growth is happening in Asia where some of the world’s biggest bikesharing programs have been introduced. The Chinese city of Hangzhou has a system with 60,000 bicycles. Ironically, Copenhagen’s pioneering city bike system was scrapped Wednesday after city officials decided to redistribute funds to other cycling initiatives.

Two-wheel parking So you’ve cycled to town. Now where do you park? Europeans are creative in this respect, chaining their bikes to lamp posts, street signs and drainpipes, or just parking them in random clusters on street corners. But theft is a major concern. To create order, some cities have built ambitious parking lots for bicycles, typically close to major transit hubs like train stations.

Bicycle chic Today cycling in Europe is embraced by people of all social classes and political persuasions. But a new subgroup has emerged: the cycling hipsters. They don’t just consider the bicycle as a means of transport, but a fashion statement. DanishCanadian photographer Mikael Colville-Andersen has captured this phenomenon in his Cycle Chic blog, showing Europeans looking oh-sostylish on their vintage two-wheelers or aerodynamic racing bikes. An unwritten style rule for the cycling fashionista: the helmet color should match that of the frame.

Man faking military service may find battle with vets DEAR ABBY: I have a friend, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Dick,â&#x20AC;? who wears veteran hats -- â&#x20AC;&#x153;Vietnam Vet,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Proud to Be a Marine,â&#x20AC;? etc. -- that imply he was in the service. The problem is, Dick was never in any branch of the military at any time. Dick claims heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;honoringâ&#x20AC;? them by wearing the hats. But when he goes into a restaurant or other place that offers military discounts, he always inquires about them. And he has never refused the offer of one or admitted he wears the slogans only to honor others and was never actually in the ser-

vice himself. I come in contact with real military service Abigail p e o p l e Van Buren who deserve to Dear Abby wear these hats. I asked a couple of them about what to do with Dick, but you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t print their responses. Abby, whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s your take? -- VALUES HONESTY IN OHIO DEAR VALUES HONESTY: The fact that I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t print the reaction

of legitimate veterans to what Dick is doing indicates how offensive and wrong it is. It appears your friend is a smalltime, chiseling con man who takes advantage of peopleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s patriotism. Why you would call someone like this a â&#x20AC;&#x153;friendâ&#x20AC;? is puzzling, because you seem to have a well-developed sense of right and wrong. A word of advice: Sooner or later, people like Dick are discovered. When that happens, it would be better if you werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t around, because people are judged by the company they keep.

DEAR ABBY: I am dating a wonderful man, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Andrew,â&#x20AC;? who has two sons, ages 10 and 12. Both of them have horrible table manners. Eating with them is like watching pigs at a trough. I have discussed this with Andrew, who agrees but has done nothing to correct them. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how to instill proper eating manners in the boys without coming across as though Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m better than they are. Do you have any suggestions? -- THE NAPKIN GOES ON THE LAP DEAR NAPKIN: You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t blame the boys for

not knowing something they were never taught. However, lecturing them at this point would be counterproductive and could cause a rift between you and your boyfriend.

Blake Shelton pulls off surprise win at CMAs BY CHRIS TALBOTT AP Music Writer

NASHVILLE, Tenn. — Winning the Country Music Association Awards’ entertainer of the year is a top honor and always counted as a career high point. But for Blake Shelton it wasn’t even the most memorable moment of an amazing Thursday night. “The Voice” star took home three trophies, including his third straight male vocalist victory, but nothing compared to sharing song of the year with wife Miranda Lambert. The pair wrote “Over You,” about the death of Shelton’s brother Richie in a car wreck 15 years ago. He said that trophy will always have a special place in their Oklahoma home. “For me as a songwriter that is as personal as I can

get,” Shelton said. “So that songwriter award, song of the year award, it will have its own shelf. It will have spotlights on it and an alarm and everything. Trip wires and there will be a land mine if you walk towards it. It is a real big deal to Miranda and I.” Shelton’s entertainer win was the biggest surprise of a night full of them. Even he couldn’t believe he’d won the award in a field that included Taylor Swift, Jason Aldean, Kenny Chesney and Brad Paisley. “I didn’t think about that tonight. I was thinking there’s Taylor Swift right there,” he said of the two-time entertainer of the year. “Really, this is pretty dumb that there’s anyone else even nominated.” The reality, though, is Shelton capped one of the

most impressive career reboots in country music history with the win. About three years ago, he was searching for a hit or a gimmick that might return him to the top of the charts, without much luck. He scored a novelty hit with Trace Adkins called “Hillbilly Bone,” began a run of hits and then joined “The Voice” in a move that made him an instant celebrity outside the country world. He hasn’t sold as many records as Swift, whose “Red” just moved 1.2 million copies in its first week, or as many concert tickets as Chesney or Aldean. But his leadingman looks, wicked sense of humor, Twitter presence and mellow baritone have made him one of country’s top stars. While Shelton didn’t give himself much of a

shot, Lambert — who also won her third straight female vocalist of the year award — thought he fit the definition of entertainer of the year after doing a little research. “I realized that it just meant not only touring numbers, not only ticket sales or how much production you have, but the way that you represent country music within a year,” Lambert said. “The media that you do and the work that you do and the TV shows that you are on and how you represent yourself and how you speak out about country music. When you think about it that way, Blake Shelton deserved to win that trophy tonight.” Shelton’s victory was just one of many surprises during the awards. Quartet Little Big Town joined Lambert with two

wins apiece, taking home vocal group and single of the year for “Pontoon.” And Thompson Square’s Shawna and Keifer Thompson won vocal duo of the year, ending Sugarland’s five-year run in that category. Like fellow outsiders LBT, Eric Church felt the love from the CMA’s voters for the first time. He won the prestigious album of the year for his breakthrough record “Chief,” signaling the North Carolina native’s complete acceptance by the country music community. “I spent a lot of my career wondering where I fit in — too country, too rock,” Church told the crowd. “I want to thank you guys for giving me somewhere to hang my hat tonight.” Hunter Hayes won new artist of the year, while

Chesney and Tim McGraw won musical event of the year for “Party Like a Rock Star” and Toby Keith won video of the year for “Red Solo Cup.” Church helped kick off the show by combining forces with Aldean and Luke Bryan. Playing with a large American flag behind them, the trio of performers teamed up on Aldean’s new single “The Only Way I Know” from his new album “Night Train” and earned a standing ovation. Each returned later to play singles, showing how large a market share they now own in country music. Shelton, McGraw and wife Faith Hill, Lady Antebellum and Keith Urban joined together to salute lifetime achievement winner Willie Nelson, ending with a group sing-along of “On the Road Again.”

Review: Denzel Washington soars as troubled pilot in ‘Flight’ BY CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie Critic

If “Flight” weren’t so exceptionally crafted and acted, this tale of self-destruction and eventual redemption might feel like the sort of feel-good fare you’d see on the Lifetime Movie Network, or even a 12-step-program promotion. Instead, director Robert Zemeckis’ first liveaction film since 2000’s “Cast Away” is by turns thrilling, engrossing and even darkly funny, anchored by a tremendous performance from Denzel Washington. This is one of those Washington roles, like his Oscar-winning work in “Training Day,” in which he exudes a potent mix

of damage and bravado, control and danger, but he’s so incredibly charismatic even as he does bad deeds that you can’t help but root for him. Here, Zemeckis and screenwriter John Gatins have given him a deeply flawed character and placed him in a complicated situation, and allowed him to put the best of what he can do on display. Washington stars as Whip Whitaker, a veteran airline pilot and serious alcoholic. When we first see him, he’s waking up wasted and naked in a hotel outside the Orlando airport alongside an equally wasted and naked (and very sexy) flight attendant. A sip of beer, a hit off a joint, a line of

coke and he’s ready for his 9 a.m. flight — swaggering, commanding, even charming. Clearly, he’s done this before. But then a major mechanical failure en route to Atlanta forces him to pull off a daring crash landing in the middle of a field in a breathtakingly spectacular extended action sequence. While the head flight attendant (Tamara Tunie) calmly, competently follows Whip’s instructions, the deeply religious, judgmental copilot (Brian Geraghty) is useless as he panics. Afterward, Whip is hailed as a hero for saving so many lives. But the subsequent federal investigation also reveals rampant substance abuse,

Horoscopes Sunday, November 4, 2012 BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Creators Syndicate

Young love has a tendency to attribute qualities to a potential sweetheart that the person may or may not possess. But the inexperienced are not the only victims of romantic idealism during the current square of Venus in Libra and Pluto in Capricorn. The aspect continues to play with our affections for the next two days. ARIES (March 21-April 19). A small kindness you perform will have an unforeseen larger benefit. The same will be true of an inconvenience. It’s as though whatever good or bad happens, it’s all meant to favor you. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The idea that lights up your mind really does turn on like a bulb hanging over your head. And there’s a very inspiring person in your life who seems to have a hand on the switch. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You solve a problem with a magic trick. Rather than trying to change the problem, you change yourself, and the issue resolves. Tonight, relationships will be a source of pride. CANCER (June 22-July 22). What is The Pegasus Effect? A piece of music? A trick for getting out of a tight spot in a video game? Or perhaps the name of something you have yet to invent. You are, after all, in a creative mood all day. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You want true guidance, not a fairy godmother. Be wary of the one who gives you nothing but glowing praise with no downside or who promises to make your dreams come true without a sin-

gle stipulation or caveat. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You may feel bold enough to approach an intriguing group. This set has a language all its own. At first you may feel a little lost or uninformed, but listen long enough, and you’ll soon fit right in. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Any fool can make matters complicated. It takes a really smart person (like you) to know what’s essential and cut the rest. You’ll keep it simple, and others will follow your lead. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’re secure enough in your status as a smart person to admit the holes in your knowledge and ask questions. After all, you can’t learn by pretending you already know. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Someone waits for your approval. This is either too much pressure for you or an extra job you don’t want. Encourage others to make decisions and act on their own accord. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ve accomplished so much on your own; just think about what you might do with an entire team on your side. You’ll meet potential additions to your inner circle. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The main action has to do with increasing your physical, mental and social circulation. Exercise, intellectual stimulation and exciting friendship will enhance life’s flow. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Plans change erratically. Events are called off and then called on again. You probably don’t know how to feel about this. Should you be stressed or not? “Not” is better. Roll with it.


which only fortifies his denial. It’s a murky area that allows a lot of room for debate: Yes, the plane malfunctioned, but Whip didn’t exactly belong in the cockpit in that state. Then again, no sober pilot could have achieved what he did, as if his looseness somehow kept him evenkeeled. While there are no easy answers, increasingly difficult questions keep cropping up. Bruce Greenwood, Don Cheadle and John Goodman all give strong supporting performances as the people around Whip who keep him functioning in various ways as the investigation (and hungry media hordes) close in around him. Greenwood

exudes an easy Southern warmth as the union representative assigned to work with Whip, Cheadle is the all-business voice of reason as the hotshot lawyer flown in from Chicago to fend off criminal charges and Goodman is, unsurprisingly, a hilarious force of nature as Whip’s pusher/enabler/friend. Kelly Reilly, meanwhile, might be the weakest link in terms of character as the junkie who meets the divorced Whip in the hospital after an overdose. She sneaks a cigarette with him in the stairwell and moves in with him soon afterward in a romance that doesn’t feel entirely believable. But the British actress, doing a solid Southern ac-

cent, finds a jittery fragility in the role that creates a tense dynamic opposite Washington’s volatile bluster. Zemeckis frequently lays the tone on in a heavy-handed fashion that frustratingly keeps “Flight” from being a truly great film. This includes a distractingly Scorseseesque, painfully literal use of rock songs to correspond with the action. And the uplifting coda needlessly spells out the hard-earned lessons that would have been more powerful had they been implied. Still, for the most part, “Flight” manages to achieve the tricky balance of functioning as a serious, adult drama that’s also crowd-pleasing.

Renting homes to vacationers helps pay taxes BY KAREN NELSON The Sun Herald

OCEAN SPRINGS — Homeowners in Ocean Springs are already doing it — renting homes by

the week to vacationers or festival-goers. It helps pay the taxes and insurance, especially on a second home or income home.

It’s a business that has been flying under the radar for years, not being regulated by the city and not paying the city lodging tax, something that’s

become common in popular resort cities. Ocean Springs is getting a handle on it. City planning commissioners have met twice

and plan another meeting with consultant Tammy L. Wisco of Eco-Systems Inc. to draft an ordinance that will apply to shortterm vacation rentals.

In a memo, Wisco told commissioners it’s not unique to Ocean Springs, but formalizing ordinances to regulate it is new to the city planning scene.

Early fall presents plenty of sporting choices The state of the hunting and fishing sports looks bright in the present and in the future. It’s amazing what a few consecutive years of favorable weather conditions can do for growing vegetation and producing habitat for all wildlife species. Wildlife, including fish, becomes healthier and much more abundant which, in turn, gives sportsmen a better than average chance for success in the sport of their choice. The key word here is “choice.” For the sportsman who likes pursuing a variety of outdoor sports, early fall presents plenty of quality choices to choose from. Fishing becomes more attractive since the fish will be feed-

ing more aggressively trying to fill their bellies before the onset David of winGreen ter, and hunting Outdoors seasons are either already open or fixing to open. In any event, the choice can be a hard one to make. Mississippi squirrel and rabbit seasons are currently open and run through Feb. 28, and those looking to do some small game hunting should find the hunting to their liking. Populations appear to have made a huge comeback in the last

few years. That is, according to own observations. I’ve seen scores of rabbits, much more than usual, while out walking the woods. And, when I went back to my old stomping grounds to hunt on the opening morning of squirrel season, I came away with seven-one shy of getting the limit for the day. Normally, this place is only good for three, maybe four, on an opening morning hunt. There was a downside to the hunt, though. It kind of saddened me how participation in the sport has dwindled since back in the day when my buddies and I treated the opening morning of squirrel season as if it

were a rite of passage into hunter adulthood. Reminiscing about the good ole days was a hard pill to swallow if you know what I mean. However, it was a little encouraging hearing a few other shotguns blasting off in the distance that morning. “Maybe, just maybe, the sport is still alive after all,” I thought. But today is a new era. Big game is the name of the game, and youth hunters got their first chance in making some memories deer hunting with modern gun weaponry yesterday. The Mississippi youth deer season opened on Nov. 3 and goes through Jan. 31. Gosh, sure wish I had that kind of opportunity

Big gift shows loyal devotion to MSU BY BOB DARDEN The Greenwood Commonwealth

GREENWOOD — Willis Durden “Dan” McGeary’s love of aviation took him far away from his family’s roots in Leflore County, but his devotion to the Delta and to his alma mater — Mississippi State University — lives on. McGeary, the last surviving heir of a prominent Delta family, died in 2011 at the age of 91. He willed his family’s farm, Sidon Plantation, to Mississippi State University. The bequest includes 2,069 acres of farmland and 568 additional acres around Sidon as well as one of the oldest homes in Leflore County. The $8 million bequest

of real estate — the largest in university history — is designated as “unrestricted,” meaning agricultural lease proceeds from the property will provide an annual source of revenue for the university as part of its Bulldog Properties program. “My husband wanted to leave the plantation and farmland to MSU because he felt the university would be good stewards of the property and because of his genuine fondness and appreciation for the school,” said McCreary’s widow, Joy Andresen McGeary. Farmer John Doty Porter, who rents Sidon Plantation, had high praise for McGeary’s vision and dedication. “He

was a wonderful man. He was very generous,” Porter said. Porter’s late fatherin-law, Buddy McNeer, began farming Sidon Plantation in the 1970s. Porter joined his fatherin-law’s farming operation in 1977 and took over when McNeer died in 1992. Even though he was born into a farming family, McGeary had wanted to be a pilot from the age of 10. That dream led him to Mississippi State College, now known as Mississippi State University, in 1940, and he earned a bachelor’s degree in aeronautical engineering. Upon graduation McGeary worked for several aircraft manufacturers as

an engineer before enlisting in the U.S. Army Air Corps. He became an aircraft commander, flying B-24 combat missions in Europe during World War II. For his military service, McGeary was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross. At the end of the war, he returned to Mississippi and managed the family plantation. He later became a captain with American Airlines, where he worked for 29 years before retiring. “Willis was always very adventurous, and he loved flying,” Joy Andresen McGeary said. “He even took the first flight on a Concorde jet that went around the world.” In his later years, McGeary resided in Marina Del Rey, Calif. He hadn’t been back to Sidon in years but was always accommodating when it came to the plantation’s tenants, Porter said. “Mississippi State University is extremely grateful to Willis McGeary for allowing us to transform his treasured possession into a valuable resource for students, faculty and programs of the university,” said Jud Skelton, the university’s director of real estate giving. McGeary’s foresight and vision will help future generations of Bulldogs, he said. “The gift is remarkable, not only for the level of generosity, but also for the investment in future generations and the demonstration of confidence he placed in Mississippi State,” Skelton said.

Partners for Fish and Wildlife program celebrates 25 Years BY JAMES L. CUMMINS Conservation Corner

The Partners for Fish and Wildlife (PFW) program was officially established by the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service (Service) in 1987. For the past 25 years, this program has been working with private landowners and organizations to protect, restore and enhance important fish and wildlife habitats on private lands. Over 25 years ago, a group of Service biologists and several conservation partners had the vision to look beyond the boundaries of government fee-title holdings and see the need to work with private landowners. Recognizing that nearly three-fourths of our nations land is privately owned and contains some of the most important fish and wildlife habitat in the United States, the mission of the PFW was to achieve voluntary habitat conservation on private lands through financial as well as technical assistance. Efforts for the PFW program started in the Lower Mississippi Valley and were focused on wetland and bottomland hardwood restoration for the benefit of migratory birds. Today, the program provides assistance to all 50 states and U.S. territories. Partnering with landowners including farmers, ranchers and corporations, projects are now implemented for a wide range of habitats with an emphasis on federal trust species, including those that are listed as threatened and endangered.

The key to success has been the relationships built with the landowners. These relationships are driven by five major goals: 1) Conserve Habitat, 2) Broaden and Strengthen Partnerships, 3) Improve Information Sharing and Communication, 4) Enhanced Workforce and 5) Increase Accountability. This common purpose has resulted in tremendous achievements: 15,000 private landowners have signed voluntary agreements, restoring and enhancing over 2.5 million acres and nearly 3,000 river miles. Financially, the program has done an outstanding job of leveraging at a rate of 4:1, essentially taking every dollar and maximizing its impact by utilizing $4 of non-PFW funds. The PFW program has gained national recognition as a leader in collaborative conservation based on the premise that fish and wildlife conservation is a shared responsibility between citizens and the government. Guided by its principles and strategic approach, the PFW will continue striving for excellence and looking for every opportunity to further promote and enhance conservation efforts. (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.

when I was a kid. I would have been drooling all over myself knowing that I could take out the heavy artillery long before the adults could. Sportsmen have another choice on the Monday following the opening youth weekend deer hunt. The Mississippi special primitive weapons/ crossbow deer season opens on Nov. 5 and goes through Nov. 16. During this season however, sportsmen have only one choice in what they are allowed to harvest. Only doe deer on private and open public lands may be taken. The prospect of good fishing and hunting opportunities exists well into the future thanks in
