Veterans Day Stew
Remodeling jobs stress permit activity BY JEBB JOHNSTON
Design calls for a 40-by-100-foot pole barn located on Fulton Drive
With few new residential and commercial starts, remodeling projects dominated the last quarter of building activity in the city. Corinth issued permits for construction jobs totaling $2,016,760 from July through September, down 35 percent from the third quarter of 2011, but right on par with 2010’s third quarter total of $2.013 million. Last year’s figure included a large permit for a hospital project. Housing starts continued at a slow pace, with one new construction permit in September and none in July and August. The third quarter of 2011 also saw just one new home start. The commercial sector saw a restaurant, Jimmy John’s, begin construction on Highway 72 East. The Corinth School District had the biggest project value of the quarter with roof work at Corinth Middle School. The quarter’s permits include the following:

A proposed design is in hand for a vegetable shed at the Farmers Market #2 on Fulton Drive. Cook Coggin Engineers recently submitted the design to the Board of Supervisors, and bids are being taken through Nov. 19. “Once we get the quotes, we will decide whether we want to proceed,” said Board President Lowell Hinton. The design is for a 40-by100-foot pole barn that would go on the city-owned property where the recycling bin is located across from the Corinth Theatre-Arts' Crossroads Playhouse. The structure’s open-air design will allow water to flow through in the event of flooding. This type of design was required because of the property’s flood status. The city has also had input on the plans. The contract, if awarded, will call for construction of the shed within 30 calendar days. Farmers market supporters believe the shed will be a plus by getting growers and customers out of the direct Please see MARKET | 3A

World War II veteran Weaver once drove for General MacArthur BY BOBBY J. SMITH email@example.com
Glen resident Willie Joe Weaver will be 91 in March. Since feeling and realizing “the call” in 1957, Weaver served as

serving his congregations, he served his nation in the U.S. Army during World War II. Today being Veterans Day, Weaver represents the “Greatest Generation” who answered

30, 1922, in rural McNairy County, Tenn., at a site not far from the Hardeman County line near the Davis Bridge battlefield. When he was a year old, his parents bought a small farm with a log cabin in Alcorn County, on a rural route of Pocahontas, Tenn., where they lived until Weaver was about three years old. The family then moved to Middleton, Tenn., where his parents operated a general merchandise store, a restaurant and a rooming house. Weaver’s memories of growing up in Middleton are still vivid over 80 years later. “I remember that on Saturday we got a big tub of ice cream packed in ice, which usually sold out by
nighttime,” Weaver recalled. “The next morning Dad and I would go down and scoop up that little bit of melted ice cream. Oh, how good!” Weaver’s school years began in Middleton. He was a bright kid with impressive math and spelling skills before he started school and was skipped ahead from the first to third grades. His first “little sweetheart” in those early school years was the daughter of the small town’s mayor. In the dark, pre-dawn hours of Dec. 4, 1928, when Weaver was six years old, the entire block where the store, restaurant and rooming house were located was destroyed by fire. “I can remember looking at the upstairs of our building and seeing my
mother throwing furnishings on the banisters,” he said. “What was left of the stores was moved into an older building on the north side of the railroad.” His family moved into a blue framed house and remained about three months before moving back to the farm where Weaver lived in his earliest childhood. As he grew up, Weaver began doing more work on the farm — cutting firewood after school, discing and plowing fields behind a team of mules in the summer, planting cotton, gathering hay while waiting for the cotton crop to mature, harvesting corn by hand and carrying a six-foot pick sack when it came time to pick the cotton. Now in high school,
Weaver transferred to Alcorn Agricultural High School in Kossuth. He had to walk a mile every morning to catch the “school truck” that would take him to class. Weaver still enjoyed school, especially his bookkeeping and typing classes. He was able to type 60 words a minute and earn two credits in one year. But during his 11th grade year, Weaver missed a great deal of time due to sickness. He dropped out, started back the next year, but had trouble catching up. His high school education ended after an incident in second year algebra class. Weaver pointed out an error in an algebra problem his teacher was copying to the chalkboard. He knew it was incorrect because he had already seen his classmate’s paper that the teacher was copying. The teacher didn’t take the correction well. “I was sitting on the front of the class,” said Weaver. “He turned around and struck me on the head with his pointer. I jumped up and doubled my fist. I was just about as big as he was. He ordered me out of the classroom and to go to the principal.” The young Weaver went to the principal’s office, and the principal met with the algebra teacher, but Weaver never knew what was said between them — because he never
came back to school after that day. “Anyway, this ended my school days. I simply quit school,” said Weaver. “It damaged my future because — not bragging — I was good in math and believe I had a great future.” Even today, remembering the algebra teacher’s name brings bad thoughts to Weaver about what might have been.
World War II: Training After quitting school, Weaver started work, cutting timber and hauling logs and later hauling timber from the sawmill. It was hard work, but Weaver saved until he was able to buy an old truck. In his last teenage years leading up to his military service, Weaver said he hauled pretty much everything, working constantly. He remembered one time when he and a boy he hired as a helper worked for three days straight without stopping day or night. This continued until Weaver entered the military, right after her turned 20. In the following section, Willie Joe Weaver will tell his own story: “The military brought a great change in my life. I had never been away from home, and only to Memphis a couple of times. After filing my draft registration, I was called before
the draft board in Corinth and told I would be a 1A. That meant I would go at any time, but they said if I would take some training I might not have to go into the military. They arranged for me to go to an aircraft training course in Corinth, an eight-week course to prepare to help build airplanes. “I was delighted. I received some pay for rent and board. I loved it. I built a couple of parts for the airplane and graduated. They had assured me of work in a factory. “Now to report to the draft board for further assignment. When I got there, it seemed like there were different people — so they ignored my training and assigned me to go to Camp Shelby for examination. “After the examination, I was given seven days back home to round up my business, they said, then back to Camp Shelby. After arrival at the camp and some more conferences, I was assigned as a truck driver, along with several other Mississippi guys, to Camp Crowder, Missouri. “It was a very rough training that had been condensed from the usual eight weeks to four weeks. I remember climbing a wall by rope ladder, seeming to be about 16 feet high, and going over the top, landing on the Please see WEAVER | 10A

For the Daily Corinthian
A smoker has decided to kick the habit. Moral support and expert help can make the difference between success and failure. Every year on the third Thursday of November, the Mississippi Tobacco Quitline recognizes the Great American Smokeout as a day for smokers across the United States to kick the smoking habit for 24 hours in the hope they will consider quitting for good. November 15 is the day when Mississippi smokers are encouraged to quit using tobacco as part of the American Cancer Society 2012 Great
American Smokeout. Over the years, the Great American Smokeout has encouraged millions of Mississippians - and Americans - to put down their packs and cartons for one brief, breathable day. â€œIt is very important to get help when attempting to stop smoking,â€? said Roy Hart, Director of the Mississippi State Department of Health (MSDH) Office of Tobacco Control. â€œGetting expert help can double your chances of success.â€? Tobacco use remains the single largest preventable cause of disease and premature death in the United States.
Each year in Mississippi, smoking accounts for an estimated 4,700 premature deaths. Sixty-nine thousand Mississippi children now under 18 will ultimately die prematurely from smoking, according to the Campaign for Tobacco-Free Kids. â€œThere is plenty of help available for Mississippians who want to stop smoking permanently,â€? said Emily J. McGrath, director of the Mississippi Tobacco-Free Coalition of Alcorn and Tippah Counties. â€œIf you want to quit using tobacco, contact the Mississippi Tobacco Quitline at 1-800-QUIT-NOW to
receive free counseling and medications, such as nicotine patches or gum.â€? â€œMake the decision to quit, and designate the Great American Smokeout on November 15 as your quit day,â€? said McGrath. â€œLet your friends, family and coworkers know that you plan to quit, and ask for their support and understanding. Nicotine withdrawal can cause feelings of stress and anxiety, and having a support network around you can help.â€? (For more information, visit www.quitlinems.com, or call the Mississippi Tobacco Quitline at 1-800-QUITNOW.)
STARKVILLE â€” Grace Cox Gardner 91, passed away on Friday, Nov. 9, 2012, at her residence. Visitation for Grace will be held at Welch Funeral Home in Starkville on Monday from 5 to 7 p.m. A funeral service will be held on Tuesday at 10 a.m. at First Baptist Church of Starkville conducted by the Rev. Eli Gardner. Burial will follow in Saulsbury Cemetery in Saulsbury, Tenn. Mrs. Gardner is survived by her son, Danny Gardner (Becky Rae) of Starkville; a daughter-in-law, Norma Gardner (Skip); five grandchildren; and three great-grandchildren. Grace Gardner was fondly and lovingly called Mama Grace by all who knew her. Besides loving all her children (those related or not), Mama Grace loved reading, studying, teaching, sharing, fellowshipping, praying, and worshipping Father, Son, and Holy Spirit. She led hundreds if not thousands of girls and women in searching out Godâ€™s mysteries, ways, and perfect will. She was always surrounded by â€œher girls,â€? usually around the kitchen table. Through the â€˜70s, â€˜80s and â€˜90s, Mama Grace was a primary caregiver for those in need in her family. She nursed her father and mother until they died. She nursed her mother-in-law until she died. She nursed her husband through eight years of Alzheimerâ€™s Disease, her daughter through several years of cancer, and numerous other friends and family through countless heartaches. She buried her husband (Milburn â€œBoâ€? Gardner Jr.) and two beloved children (Skip and Beth) way too soon. Though she led so many to faith in Christ and into spiritual maturity, Mama Grace never considered herself a leader. She was always a fellow traveler seeking all those things that â€œwork together for good to those who love God, to those who are called according to His purpose.â€? Her goal in life was â€œmore of Him and less of me.â€? She truly sought Godâ€™s will in everything. She was a good and faithful servant in every way. She was the epitome of Proverbs 31:10 â€“ 31. In all her ways she acknowledged God, and God surely directed her in His way. Memorial contributions may be made to a charity of choice. For on-line condolences: welchfuneralhomes. com

The greatest gift remains the gift of giving — to kids Registration has begun for the annual Lighthouse Foundation Toy Store. Every year it seems the need just gets bigger and bigger for this very worthy local cause. Donations are needed from the community to help the organization provide for those in need. Lighthouse Foundation Executive Director Gary Caveness recently told the newspaper they’re expecting an even bigger need this year as families continue to struggle in the tough economic climate. Registration sessions are now under way for those hoping to receive help from the program. Sessions will be held throughout the month of November each Monday, Tuesday and Thursday from 9 a.m. to noon at the foundation’s headquarters on Johns Street. 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. 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. Now is the time for the entire community to step forward to help make this year’s toy store a success. Donations are very much needed from the community to support the program. Donations may be mailed to The Lighthouse Foundation, P.O. Box 2121, Corinth, Miss. 38835. Any donation is appreciated and no contribution is too small. The greatest gift during the holiday season is the gift of giving -- especially to a local child. Daily Corinthian (Anyone interested in getting involved in the Lighthouse Foundation Toy Store program by donating or working as a volunteer should call the Lighthouse Foundation at 662-286-0091.)
Prayer for today Most loving Lord, give us at childlike love of Thee, which may cast out all fear. Amen.

Obama’s re-election is waiving freedom Among the objections to ObamaCare, one that has not gotten as much attention as it should is the president's power to waive the law for any company, union or other enterprise he chooses. The 14th A m e n d ment to the Constitution provides for “equal protection of the laws” for all Thomas Americans. Sowell To have a law that can cost Columnist an organization millions of dollars a year either apply or not apply, depending on the whim or political interest of the president of the United States, is to make a mockery of the rule of law. How secure is any freedom when there is this kind of arbitrary power in the hands of one man? What does your right of freedom of speech mean if saying something that irritates the Obama administration means that you or your business has to pay huge amounts of money and get hit with all sorts of red tape under ObamaCare that your competitor is exempted from, because your competitor either kept quiet or praised the Obama administration or donated to its reelection campaign? Arbitrary ObamaCare
waivers are bad enough by themselves. They are truly ominous as part of a more general practice of this administration to create arbitrary powers that permit them to walk roughshod over the basic rights of the American people. The checks and balances of the Constitution have been evaded time and time again by the Obama administration, undermining the fundamental right of the people to determine the laws that govern them, through their elected representatives. You do not have a selfgoverning people when huge laws are passed too fast for the public to even know what is in them. You do not have a selfgoverning people when “czars” are created by Executive Orders, so that individuals wielding vast powers equal to, or greater than, the powers of Cabinet members do not have to be vetted and confirmed by the people's elected representatives in the Senate, as Cabinet members must be. You do not have a selfgoverning people when decisions to take military action are referred to the United Nations and the Arab League, but not to the Congress of the United States, elected by the American people, whose blood and treasure are squandered.
You do not have a selfgoverning people when a so-called “consumer protection” agency is created to be financed by the unelected officials of the Federal Reserve System, which can create its own money out of thin air, instead of being financed by appropriations voted by elected members of Congress who have to justify their priorities and trade-offs to the taxpaying public. You do not have a selfgoverning people when laws passed by the Congress, signed by previous presidents, and approved by the federal courts, can have the current president waive whatever sections he does not like, and refuse to enforce those sections, despite his oath to see that the laws are faithfully executed. Barack Obama, for example, has refused to carry out sections of the immigration laws that he does not like, unilaterally creating de facto amnesty for those illegal immigrants he has chosen to be exempt from the law. The issue is not -repeat, not -- the wisdom or justice of this president's immigration policy, but the seizing of arbitrary powers not granted to any president by the Constitution of the United States. You do not have a selfgoverning people if President Obama succeeds in having international trea-
ties under United Nations auspices govern the way Americans live their lives, whether with gun control laws or other laws. Obama's “citizen of the world” mindset was revealed back in 2008, when he said “We can't drive our SUVs and eat as much as we want and keep our homes on 72 degrees at all times ... and then just expect that every other country is going to say okay.” The desire to circumvent the will of the American people was revealed even more ominously when Barack Obama said to Russian President Medvedev — when he thought the microphone was off — that, after he is reelected and need never face the voters again, he can be more “flexible” with the Russians about missile defense. There are other signs of Obama's contempt for American Constitutional democracy, but these should be more than enough. Dare we risk how far he will go when he never has to face the voters again, and can appoint Supreme Court justices who can rubber stamp his power grabs? Will this still be America in 2016?

US must stop UN gun control treaty now BY DICK MORRIS AND EILEEN MCGANN Columnists
While I was wrong in predicting a Mitt Romney win, I was, unfortunately, correct in saying that President Obama would move to sign a U.N. Arms Control Treaty right after the election whether he won or lost. On the very day after the election, the Obama administration voted to reopen talks on the treaty at a special meeting on March 18-28. The U.S. will undoubtedly “compromise” and sign the treaty, all the time reassuring us that it is protecting our constitutional right to bear arms. But don't be fooled! This treaty is U.N. gun control pure and simple. The giveaway is that it is designed to solve a problem that almost doesn't exist: The private exportation of small arms. Ninety percent of all small arms exports come from governments, primarily the United States, Israel, Russia and China. If the U.N. really wanted to

stop the sales of weapons to drug gangs, guerilla groups and extremists, it would only have to stop arms sales from these governments. Instead, the U.N. is setting up an elaborate mechanism to stop, by treaty, sales and exports of guns and grenades by private companies and individuals around the world. This regimen will necessitate a U.N. oversight governing body with broad enforcement powers and is a backdoor way to enact global gun controls. Since the U.S. accounts of 40 percent of all small arms exports, it is squarely aimed at us. This U.N. governing body will have the power to require registration of all guns as a preliminary “inventory” of weapons to stop their exportation. Then, limitations on sales and even confiscations could follow. The treaty amounts to a backdoor way of achieving, through international action, gun controls that would never pass the U.S. Congress. And, politically, it is a way to cut the Republican House
of Representatives out of the equation and empower on the Democratic Senate to approve the gun controls since they are being done by treaty. The House has no role in treaty ratification. This U.N. governing body will have the power to require registration of all guns as a preliminary inventory of weapons to stop their exportation. Then, limitations on sales and even confiscations could follow. But ... it does require a 2/3 vote of the Senate to ratify the treaty. And there are still 45 Republicans in the new Senate. If we hold 34 of them, we can kill the treaty. Most have already indicated their opposition to the treaty, but don't rely on that. When the U.S. “achieves” some soothing language protecting the Second Amendment -- words that do nothing to mitigate the enforcement power conferred on the U.N. governing body in the treaty itself -- they will flake away, leaving only the serious opponents of gun control to vote no.

State ranks high for traumatic brain injuries BY JIMMIE D. GATES Associated Press
JACKSON — Neal Sandifer was athletic with a passion for the outdoors and hunting. Today, the once vibrant Sandifer, 34, lives in a nursing home in Columbia, unable to care for himself after a 2008 fall from a deer stand left him permanently brain damaged. “He shouldn’t be in a nursing home,” said Lee Jenkins, executive director of the Brain Injury Association of Mississippi. Jenkins said most nursing homes aren’t equipped to handle the anger and outbursts often associated with a patient’s severe brain injury and the rehab that is needed. The problem is that some severely brain-injured pa-
tients can be a danger to themselves and others unless they are in a controlled environment and receiving needed treatment. Jenkins said there is no long-term, inpatient care facility in Mississippi for those with severe brain injury. Sandifer’s family had a difficult time finding a nursing home for him, and now the nursing home has told Sandifer’s family he will have to be removed by the end of this month. Neal Sandifer’s father, Richard “Part” Sandifer, said he may be forced to bring his son home — although he and his family can’t really care for him. Neal’s mother, Sara, suffered a brain hemorrhage several years ago and now

uses a wheelchair. “There isn’t one place I can find for him in the state,” the elder Sandifer said, choking back emotions. “I want some help for my son.” A place in Covington, La., is willing to take his son, but the cost is $600 a day, and Richard Sandifer says he can’t afford it. “I’m retired; we had some money saved, but I’m going broke fast trying to care for my son,” Sandifer said. Jenkins, who advocates the need for an inpatient, long-term care facility for people with traumatic brain injuries, said, “It’s a bad situation; some patients with brain injuries can’t go home because no one can take care of them.” Lamar County Judge
Billy Andrews said it’s a shame no state group or agency will step in to help Neal Sandifer. He said an effort was made to try to get Sandifer into a mental health facility but no place will accept him. In Mississippi, Methodist Rehabilitation Center is the post-acute, shortterm facility that most brain injury patients got to, but after that, there is no public or private longterm, inpatient facility. Dr. Richard Katz, a Jackson brain injury specialist, said there is a need for a long-term, inpatient center but said he doubts one will be established because of cost and the difficulty of obtaining a certificate of need to operate a facility in the state.
After his son was discharged from Methodist Rehabilitation Center after eight weeks, Richard Sandifer said he couldn’t find anywhere for him to go in Mississippi. Sandifer said he eventually found a place in Arkansas that would take his son. Neal stayed in the facility there for more than two years, but when the insurance coverage ran out, he was no longer able to keep his son there. The elder Sandifer said they brought their son home for a while, but there was no way he and his disabled wife could physically care for him. Neal Sandifer was married at the time of the accident, but his wife couldn’t handle the situation and
divorced him and moved back to her native Georgia, according to the elder Sandifer. Mike Barnes, the Mount Olive man who languished in a hospital bed for nearly two years with a traumatic brain injury, improved after undergoing treatment at the NeuroRestorative Timber Ridge in Benton, Ark., the same place Sandifer was. Richard Sandifer said his son was making progress at the facility until he had to be removed. Barnes, 50, was transferred in November of last year from the University of Mississippi Medical Center in Jackson to the Arkansas brain-injury facility after a long battle with bureaucracy and lack of in-state services.

Obama wins Florida, gets state’s 29 votes BY TAMARA LUSH Associated Press
ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. — President Barack Obama was declared the winner of Florida’s 29 electoral votes Saturday, ending a four-day count with a razor-thin margin that narrowly avoided an automatic recount that would have brought back memories of 2000. No matter the outcome, Obama had already clinched re-election and now has 332 electoral votes to Romney’s 206. The Florida Secretary of State’s Office said that with almost 100 percent of the vote counted, Obama led Republican challenger Mitt Romney 50 percent to 49.1 percent, a difference of about 74,000 votes. That was over the half-percent margin where a computer recount would have been automatically ordered unless Romney had waived it. There is a Nov. 16 deadline for overseas and military ballots, but under Florida law, recounts are based on Saturday’s results. Only a handful of overseas and military ballots are believed to remain outstanding. It’s normal for election supervisors in Florida and other states to spend days
after any election counting absentee, provisional, military and overseas ballots. Usually, though, the election has already been called on election night or soon after because the winner’s margin is beyond reach. “Florida has spoken loudly in support of moving our nation forward,” Ashley Walker, the Obama campaign’s director for Florida, said in a news release. She added that the win was a testament to the campaign’s volunteers and staff. When reached by phone Saturday, Mitt Romney’s communications director Gail Gitcho said the campaign had no comment. Obama’s win came in part from heavy support from black, Hispanic and younger voters. Exit polls conducted for The Associated Press showed Obama was favored by more than 9 of 10 black voters and 3 of 5 Hispanic voters in Florida. The president also was the choice of two-thirds of voters under age 30. Republican challenger Mitt Romney led among both white and older voters. In the end, the facts of who voted for which candidate in Florida faded into memory as voting
issues emerged election night. On election night this year, it was difficult for officials — and the media — to call the presidential race here, in part because the margin was so close and the voting stretched into the evening. In Miami-Dade, for instance, so many people were in line at 7 p.m. in certain precincts that some people didn’t vote until after midnight. The hours-long wait at the polls in some areas, a lengthy ballot and the fact that Gov. Rick Scott refused to extend early voting hours has led some to criticize Florida’s voting process. Some officials have vowed to investigate why there were problems at the polls and how that led to a lengthy vote count. If there had been a recount, it would not be as difficult as the lengthy one in 2000. The state no longer uses punch-card ballots, which became known for their hanging chads. All 67 counties now use optical scan ballots where voters mark their selections manually. Republican George W. Bush won the 2000 contest after the Supreme Court declared him the winner over Democrat Al Gore by a scant 537 votes.
Napping man run over by combine Judd doesn’t rule out Senate run Associated Press
BILLINGS, Mont. — A man napping in a Montana cornfield was startled out of his snooze when he was run over by a large harvesting machine — and Yellowstone County deputies say he’s lucky to be alive. Sheriff’s Lt. Kent O’Donnell says the
57-year-old man had been traveling the country by bus and decided to take a rest three rows deep in a field on the outskirts of Billings, the state’s largest city. A farmer harvesting this week felt his combine hit something. When he turned the machine off, he heard screaming.
Emergency responders found the man’s clothing had been sucked into the cutter, ensnaring him in the blades. O’Donnell says the man, whose name was not released, suffered cuts requiring stitches and may need skin grafts, but given the circumstances is “incredibly lucky.”
FRANKFORT, Ky. — Actress Ashley Judd isn’t ruling out a run for U.S. Senate in Kentucky. The former Kentuckian is an active supporter of Tennessee Democrats. She said in a statement Friday that she’s honored to be men-
tioned as a potential candidate, but she sidestepped the question of whether she would get into the race. “I cherish Kentucky, heart and soul, and while I’m very honored by the consideration, we have just finished an election, so let’s focus on coming together
to keep moving America’s families, and especially our kids, forward,” she said. Judd lives in Tennessee and would have to re-establish a residence in Kentucky before she could challenge Senate Republican Leader Mitch McConnell in his 2014 re-election bid.

FedEx: Online shopping powers holiday record BY SAMANTHA BOMKAMP Associated Press
NEW YORK â€” FedEx expects to ship 280 million packages between Thanksgiving and Christmas, up 13 percent from a year ago, thanks to consumersâ€™ growing fondness for shopping online. FedEx moves a bulk of its cheaper, lighter weight shipments from online and catalog retailers through its SmartPost service, a partnership with the U.S. Postal Service. The recent holiday business forecast comes against a background of lackluster growth in the global economy. The Memphis, Tenn.,
based business expects Dec. 10 to be its busiest day with 19 million shipments, up 10 percent from 2011. FedEx Corp. said holiday shipments will be driven by sales of personal electronics, apparel, luxury goods and items from large internet retailers. FedEx has a customer shipping outlet based in Corinth. Larger rival UPS, which is based in Atlanta, hasnâ€™t yet released its holiday forecast. The National Retail Federation expects holiday sales to increase 4.1 percent. That would be the smallest increase since 2009 when sales were up just 0.3 percent. But the forecast still is
Eric M Rutledge, AAMSÂŽ, CFPÂŽ Financial Advisor 1500 Harper Road Suite 1 Corinth, MS 38834 662-287-1409
Brian S Langley Financial Advisor 605 Foote Street Corinth, MS 38834 662-287-4471
higher than the 3.5 percent average over the last 10 years. Research firm eMarketer forecasts online holiday sales will grow 16.8 percent, excluding travel purchases. FedEx and UPS Inc. can get double the benefit when consumers choose to shop online: They ship the gift to the receiver, and they also ship the unwanted presents that are later returned. FedEx SmartPost has been a huge driver of growth for the company since it was formed. Average daily package volume grew 18 percent in the fiscal first quarter ended in August, more than three times the growth rate of FedExâ€™s
overall ground shipments in the U.S. The ground segment, which moves mostly non-priority shipments by truck, has held up despite slower growth around the globe as consumers and businesses opt for slower methods of shipping to save money. FedEx plans to hire 20,000 seasonal workers to help handle the surge â€” the same as last year. Overall, FedEx has warned that the global economy is stalling and expects conditions to get worse next year. Itâ€™s making big cuts in the segments that have been the hardest hit, including its Express unit that moves top-priority shipments by air.

Aggies claim Corinth teams earn Top 3 finishes in 4A Top 3 finish BY H. LEE SMITH II
BY H. LEE SMITH II email@example.com
The Kossuth boys cross country team remains a powerhouse. Unfortunately they’ve been running into a few along the way. Kossuth turned in its eighth straight Top 3 showing at the Class 3A State Cross Country Meet on Saturday, finishing behind Saint Andrew’s and Saint Patrick The two “Saints” swapped places in the girls’ event. In claiming the boys’ title, Andrew’s was just six points shy of a perfect score with 21 points. Patrick was a distant second with 73, keeping Kossuth out of a second-straight runner-up finish by a mere eight points. Kossuth won two titles in 2007 and 2009. In addition the Aggies -- with 11 straight Top 5 finishes -- own four runner-up slots (2005, 06, 08, 11) and a
Yvette Evans and Emma Knight finished second and third, respectively, at the Class 4A State Cross County Meet, but Pontotoc’s consistency earned them another team title. Pontotoc placed three runners in the Top 10 and all five of their scoring entrants were among the first 16 to cross the line as the other Lady Warriors secured their fourth straight championship. Teams are awarded points for the order of finish on their first five runners to cross the finish line, thus the lowest score wins. Schools can enter as many as seven runners with those finishes used in team tie-breakers. Pontotoc finished with 49
points, with Corinth earning a runner-up finish with 69 digits. It was clearly a battle of the native teams, with Lafayette County finishing 30 points back of Corinth in third place. Evans, an eighth-grader, finished second in the 4K event at Mississippi College in 15:29.7. She was just one second back of Lafayette County’s Peyton Hamann for the individual title. Emma Knight was 13 seconds behind her teammate in third place. The freshman finished 18 clicks ahead of the fourth-place finisher. Corinth placed three in the Top 15 and another in the Top 25. ■ All of Saint Stanislaus’ runners placed in the Top 10 as they knocked of three-time
champion Pontotoc. Saint Stanislaus tallied 26 points — just 11 above a perfect score — to more than double Pontotoc, which finished with 54 points. ■ Corinth finished third with 67 points. With two runners in the Top 10 and two more among the first 15, the Warriors trailed 38-34 before the final scoring runner for each school crossed the line. A nine-place difference increased the final margin for the runner-up spot to 13. ■ Clayton Allred finished fourth in 17:29 to top Corinth’s efforts. Will Crigger finished 10th in 17:58.

No. 9 LSU tops Bulldogs BY BRETT MARTEL Associated Press
BATON ROUGE, La. — Zach Mettenberger looked sharp a second straight week, and this time his performance produced a victory for ninth-ranked LSU. Mettenberger passed for 273 yards and two touchdowns, and LSU kept alive faint hope of a Southeastern Conference title with a 37-17 victory over No. 23 Mississippi State on Saturday night. One week after passing for a careerhigh 298 yards in a narrow loss to No. 1 Alabama, Mettenberger completed 19 of 30 passes without an interception against the Bulldogs. His top target was Jarvis Landry, who had nine catches for 109 yards — both career highs — including a 19-yard touchdown to help the Tigers (8-2, 4-2 SEC) beat the Bulldogs (7-3, 3-3) for the 13th straight time. Mettenberger’s other scoring pass went to Spencer Ware. Fullback J.C. Copeland scored on a 1-yard plunge and safety Craig Loston returned an interception 100 yards for a score. Tyler Russell completed a careerhigh 26 passes on 38 attempts for a career-high 295 yards and a touchdown that got the Bulldogs as close as field goal early in the third quarter before they faded in their third straight loss, all against ranked teams. LSU’s defense shut out Mississippi State during the last 27:52, during which Tigers defensive ends Sam Montgomery and Barkevious Mingo each sacked Russell and Loston made Please see LSU | 9

Vandylized: Commodores rally past Rebles Associated Press
OXFORD — Jordan Rodgers hit Chris Boyd for a 26yard touchdown pass with 52 seconds remaining and Vanderbilt rallied for a 27-26 victory over Mississippi on Saturday night. The Commodores (6-4, 3-3 Southeastern Conference) are now bowl eligible for the second straight season for the first time in school history. Vanderbilt trailed 23-6 early in the third quarter, but
Rodgers found Jordan Matthews for a 52-yard touchdown minutes later to start the Commodores’ rally. Rodgers completed 20 of 35 passes for 267 yards and two touchdowns. Matthews caught nine passes for 153 yards and a touchdown. Ole Miss (5-5, 2-4) must beat either LSU or Mississippi State over the final two weeks to become bowl eligible for the first time since 2009. Vanderbilt has won six out
of eight games against Ole Miss. Ole Miss wasted a terrific performance from Bo Wallace, who completed 31 of 49 passes for 403 yards and a touchdown. It’s only the fifth time in school history a quarterback has thrown for more than 400 yards. Ja-Mes Logan caught eight passes for 160 yards. The Rebels looked like they might hang on for the win after Bryson Rose kicked a 27-yard
field goal to push them ahead 26-20 with 2:43 remaining. But Vanderbilt drove the field in less than two minutes on nine plays, showing a moxie rarely seen from the Commodores before the arrival of coach James Franklin two years ago. Boyd was wide open down the sideline on the gamewinning play, catching Rodgers’ perfectly-thrown ball and jogging into the end zone untouched.
Johnny Manziel, Texas A&M stun No. 1 Alabama Associated Press
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Johnny Football and the SEC newbies from Texas A&M took down the biggest bully in their new neighborhood and left No. 1 Alabama with badly bruised national championship hopes. Johnny Manziel, better known around Texas as Johnny Football, staked the 15th-ranked Aggies to a three-
touchdown lead in the first quarter, and Texas A&M held on to beat the Crimson Tide 29-24 on Saturday. The Aggies (8-2, 5-2), playing in the Southeastern Conference for the first season after ditching the Big 12, also might have ended the league’s run of BCS titles at six years. The defending national champion Crimson Tide (9-1, 6-1), who have been No. 1 al-
most all season and had won 13 straight, didn’t go quietly. AJ McCarron nearly pulled off a second straight scintillating comeback. He threw one touchdown pass and motored the ball downfield before Deshazor Everett stepped in front of his fourth-down pass at the goal line with 1:36 left. Manziel passed for 253 yards and rushed for 92, con-
founding the Tide defense with his ability to keep plays alive as the Aggies scored the game’s first 20 points. “No moment is too big for him,” coach Kevin Sumlin said of his remarkable redshirt freshman. And no defense or venue too tough, apparently. “If you’re around him every day, I don’t think it bothers him that much,” Sumlin said.
Missouri rallies for 4-overtime win over Tennessee Associated Press
KNOXVILLE, Tenn.— Missouri quarterback James Franklin couldn’t do much of anything for much of Saturday’s game against Tennessee. By the end of the day, he couldn’t be stopped. Andrew Baggett kicked a 35-yard field goal in the fourth overtime period as Missouri rallied from a two-touchdown halftime deficit to beat Tennessee 51-48 at Neyland Stadium. Missouri forced overtime when Franklin threw a 25-
yard touchdown pass to Dorial Green-Beckham on a fourthand-12 play with 47 seconds remaining. Each team scored touchdowns on its first two overtime possessions, including a 5-yard run by Tennessee holder Tyler Drummer on a fake field-goal attempt. Each team reached the end zone again in the third overtime but failed to make its ensuing two-point conversion attempt. Missouri’s defense finally came through in the fourth
overtime when safety Ian Simon broke up a fourth-and-3 pass to Zach Rogers from the Missouri 18. Franklin was 2-of-8 for 18 yards and an interception in the first half, but he ended up throwing for 226 yards and four touchdowns while also rushing for 43 yards. All of his touchdown passes came in the final minute of regulation or overtime. Kendial Lawrence added two touchdown runs and 153 rushing yards for Missouri (5-5, 2-5
SEC). Tyler Bray threw for 404 yards and four touchdowns for Tennessee (4-6, 0-6). Missouri and Tennessee had entered the day tied for the NCAA lead with 10 all-time overtime victories each. Tennessee has now lost 13 of its last 14 SEC games, casting further doubt of Volunteers coach Derek Dooley. Tennessee entered the day having allowed the most points (35.4) and yards (483.1) per game of any team in the Southeastern Conference.

ground with some other fellows. It apparently knocked the breath out of me. When I came, I was in the back of a hospital truck. “After a few minutes, I was continuing my basic training. “We were given a rifle, a long, heavy piece of equipment. The day was a rough one. It was snowing very hard and we could hardly see the target. We fired several rounds. but it seems that everyone was missing the target. They waved a red flag — called ‘Maggie’s drawers‘ — meaning we missed the target. About noontime our leaders gave in to the weather and said, ‘Let’s go back to the barracks.’ “We spent the evening taking apart the rifles and putting them back together. At any rate, I received an Expert Rifleman pin. “The camp was in the process of being built at this time. After returning from our field training and supper I would find my bed torn up — a sign it was not properly made. I would have to do extra duty after supper to help in completing the camp construction. “I ask why it seemed to be me and some other southern fellows whose beds were torn up. The corporal said it was because the yankees would not work and southerners would. “While taking the Basic Training I was interviewed. We talked about what I liked and did not like, The person doing the interview said he was assigning me to Cryptology
School. I’d never heard that word before. Didn’t want it. I knew how to drive a truck and thought that would be better than being a food soldier. But he said, ‘No.’ After Basic Training I attended the Cryptology School, loved it and did marvelous at it. It was another great blessing I got while trying to dodge it. “Upon completion of the school, some eight weeks later, I was assigned to a Communication unit which was comprised of 19 enlisted men and a commissioned officer. The mission was to support an army battalion. “Within about 30 days, I was given a staff sergeant’s rank and named Chief Cryptology Clerk. For the first time in my military life, I was able to tell someone else what to do — yet I still had others to answer to. “We finally were loaded onto a troop train along with 14 units like ours, and somewhere along the way it was discovered we were going to California. We were placed in a barracks with other soldiers. We had nothing to do, so our unit officer decided to keep us busy, and we started taking hikes. The first day was to be a halfmile and half-mile back, growing by a half-mile each day. We didn’t look forward to this. “Fortunately, we loaded on a ship the next day and was on a voyage to Godonly-knows-where. “In our unit, we had a fellow that was highly nervous. Just call his name and he would do a big jump. Soon thereafter we
found ourselves boarding a big vessel, the SS Holbrook, a former passenger and freight ship. One day after boarding the ship, going under the Golden Gate Bridge and moving out over the waters, he and I were standing at the rail of the ship. He proudly wore a good looking goldlooking wrist watch. Some guy walked up behind us and called his name real loud. He jumped and slung his arms real hard. That beautiful watch went sailing out across the water, of course, never to be seen again. “Once as we traveled along, a giant whale came alongside the ship. Everyone was called to see it. Its back looked like a two-lane country road. We were told not to throw anything at it, as if it became angry it could toss the ship over. It stayed alongside the ship for about an hour and disappeared. “One time when the usual daily practice alarms sounded, it was the real thing. A German sub was in the area. Depth charges were released. We were able to notice the difference in the ship’s action immediately. They had been changing its direction every seven minutes. Now it seemed to be heading straight ahead at full speed. We were told we might outrun it, but to be alert, as there might be others in the area. The German sub surfaced way back on the horizon, and we could see the German symbol on it. “Since there was no way for us to tell anyone, they told us we were headed for Brisbane, Australia. One day we traveled through
The Alliance Welcomesthese thesenew newmembers: members: Welcome
some waters with a lot of white material floating on the water. They told us it was the remains of a hospital ship that had been sunk by a Japanese sub. “We finally docked in Brisbane early in 1943.
Australia and MacArthur “After docking, we unloaded into a processing place. Later my team was transferred to General MacArthur’s headquarters to work in communications. At first, some of us were given a Jeep, a little later doing anything that needed to be done — from delivering messages by Jeep or on motorcycle, to doing work in the office. A little later I was made Communications Center Chief and had a straight daytime job, except when extra duties would call, and they were quite a few. Sometimes we had to work late in the night. We handled all the headquarters communications, and they were exceptionally heavy late in the evening. “I even drove General MacArthur on a few occasions. He had a regular driver attached to the communications center, but he was given a day off now and then. Some of us in the center would have to drive the general’s car. I had that privilege several times. “It was usually to his house to pick up his wife, and then to the officer’s club for dinner, and then back home a couple of hours later. The general did not talk much, but when he spoke, he meant it. One night while driving for him, he asked where was my “Mable.” The girlfriends were all called “Mables” by the G.I.s. His regular driver was on duty 24-7, except an occasional day off. I found out later that the regular driver had his girlfriend with him some of the time, and this seemed to be permissible.
“I remember on one occasion the general came in our section of the office and, as was the standard procedure, someone would call attention. We had a new officer on duty, and he was sitting behind his desk with his feet upon the desk reading a magazine and did not move. The general reached over and jerked the magazine out of his hand. “When he got up, the general requested an entry to a highly classified area of our office. We in the office knew how to enter without the password, but this was illegal. The door had a little peephole with a little door which could be opened from the inside to see that the person desiring entry was okay to be let in. Those of us working in the outer section knew the trick of popping the little door open and then reading our arm in through it to unlock the door. But we wouldn’t have dreamed of letting the general know this or done it in his presence. “The officer jumped up and ran to the door. He used our little secret to let the general in. There were some words I did not hear, but after that night, we never saw the officer again, and someone was there to take his place. I never knew why we had to have a commissioned officer there, anyway. Guess it was just the army’s way of doing things. “During this, MacArthur was preparing to lead his army back to the Philippines as he said he would. The Japanese had conquered most of the islands north of the northern tip of Australia and had tried to land troops on the tip near Darwin. When the drive began, the general was always backing up his forces and staying in close contact with them. We began to see less of him. However, he returned regularly to see that all communica-
tions were going through as they should. (Our office handled all the communications to all of the world.) I think he returned because his wife stayed there until much later. “I was relieved of all my responsibilities in December 1945 to return home. My return was on a small vessel, a wartime troop landing type with a flat front bottom. As we traveled near the Hawaiian Islands, we hit a big storm that created high waves. Sometimes it would appear that our little ship would have to go through the wave, but as we approached, it would seemingly turn sideways and rise over it. Riding near the front of the ship would give you a thrill.
Postwar On Jan. 13, 1946, Weaver was relieved of active duty and transferred to the Army Reserve. The years that followed were just as full as the ones in his past. On March 15, 1947, he was married Marie Wells in Corinth. After a period working in accounting and several other jobs, he was forced to leave his new family — and 18 month old son — when he was called back to the military during the Korean War. But after several months of training, Weaver was once again able to wear his civilian clothes. Now he is retired after many years serving as a minister and approaching his 91st birthday. Weaver’s source of support and inspiration comes from his wife, Marie, and his children, Bob, Cindy and Laura. “Bob was the little 18 month old boy we had to leave with his grandmother as I entered the Korean War tour,” said Weaver. “The Lord has blessed us with five grandchildren and seven grandchildren.” Weaver lives in the Glen community.

Pilot experiences tragedy, rediscovery in ‘Flight’ Flight, R, ****1/2,Denzel Washington, Don Cheadle, John Goodman, Brian Geraghty, Bruce Greenwood, Nadine Velazquez; Paramount Picture; Director Robbert Zemeckis; length -- 138 minutes I’ve been in planes during stormy weather where air pockets caused the plane to drop several hundred feet without warning. It was pretty scary. High winds can move a plane in every direction, therefore, the pilots and crew must have a clear mind. The movie, “Flight” simulates this horror with accuracy, fear and sadness.
I n “Flight,” the audience meets Whip (Denzel Washa Terry ington), pilot in MiBurns ami, Fla. It Movie Critic is early in the morning as he is about to fly back to Atlanta on the last leg of his flight. Though he is an excellent pilot, he has a problem. Washington portrays his character with a subtle, but strong performance. He totally becomes Whip, including his cockiness, arrogance and denial.
Two major stories develop as the film progresses. Following these stories along with some very colorful characters gives this film substance and realism. It was obvious from the movie’s trailer the plane crashes but I will not reveal all of the details. I will say the moments before the plane crashes are nerve shattering. Some of us have been in planes during stormy weather. Believe me, it is not fun. The scene will keep the audience on the edge of their seats. As the plane is attempting a landing, Whip re-
ceives some injuries and is unconscious. He is taken to the hospital. There he meets Nicole (Kelly Reilly) who is a drug addict. Immediately, they are attracted to each other. John Goodman plays Harling, a drug supplier, and has some absolutely hilarious lines. His fasttalking style along with his arrogance brings some laughter to a tragic situation. After leaving the hospital, Whip travels to his farm to avoid the press. He realizes Nicole is without a job or money so he tries to help her. He takes her to his
farm, and she soon finds a job. She is determined to break her habit and begin a new life. Whip also has an ex-wife and young boy. He does not have a good relationship with either of them, but the movie’s headline gives some clues as to why. “Flight” is an engaging, intelligent story about failures, tragedy and hopefully, redemption.

NOW OPEN IN OUR NEW LOCATION!
NEW YORK — Some of society’s most vulnerable people — the elderly, the disabled and the chronically ill — have been pushed to the brink in the powerless, flood-ravaged neighborhoods struggling to recover from Superstorm Sandy. The storm didn’t just knock out electricity and destroy property when it came ashore in places like the Far Rockaway section of Queens. It disrupted the fragile support networks that allowed the neighborhood’s frailest residents to get by. Here, the catastrophe has closed pharmacies, kept home care aids from getting to elderly clients and made getting around in a wheelchair impossible. The city has recorded at least two deaths of older men in darkened buildings. For some living in the disaster zone, it has all
been too much. When a team of medics and national guardsmen turned up at Sheila Goldberg’s apartment tower in Far Rockaway on Friday to check on the well-being of residents, floor by floor, the 75-year-old burst into tears and begged for help caring for her 85-year-old husband. “This is a blessing. I’m at my wit’s end,” she sobbed. Her husband, Irwin, has a pacemaker, wears a colostomy bag, and needs her help to do almost everything. When the power was on, Goldberg said, “I could take care of him by myself and survive.” But for days, the building had no heat or electricity. There were no open stores to buy food. Until the end of the week, there was no water or elevators either, meaning residents like the Goldbergs, on the 25th floor, had to cart water up the steps them-
selves just to flush the toilet. A bad stench permeates much of the building. “I’m running out of my blood pressure medication. We’re both going to drop dead in this apartment,” Sheila said. The medical team said it would make arrangements to transfer Irwin to a medical facility, at least temporarily. City and federal officials, and a growing army of volunteers, are trying hard to make sure families like that don’t fall into despair. Their efforts come alongside relief workers, donations, volunteers and demolition crews who flocked to New York and New Jersey in recent days to assist in the massive cleanup. The region took a few more steps to move past the storm Saturday, when power was restored for many more and gas rationing eased some of the clogged lines at stations in New York.

The ‘New York Minute’ will never be forgotten BY JIMMY REED Columnist
All I wanted was my hand back. The old man behind the counter in the country store way out in Louisiana farm country clasped it with eagle talon strength, squeezing tighter and tighter, his pained, bloodshot eyes locked with mine. Panicking, wishing I had not stopped for a cold drink, disregarding the $20 bill I plopped down to pay for it, I struggled to free my hand from his and escape. “They’ve hit us! They’ve hit us!” he halfshrieked, half-sobbed. “Me and my brother … we fought in the Pacific. My brother, he never come back. I seen war’s horror and destruction, but it was over yonder. Now I’m seeing it all
Before that minute, the part of me that had been typically American — glad to be one, but not always mindful of, nor thankful enough, for the opportunities and freedoms I too often had taken for granted — became as American as the stars and stripes sewn by Betsy Ross. In that minute, I grasped the true meaning of E Pluribus Unum: from many, one. over again, right here in the country I fought for … the country my brother died for!” It was Sept. 11, 2001. “Mister, what in God’s name are you talking about?” I asked, massaging the hand he finally released as he turned away, weeping openly. He motioned me back into the tiny living quarters that had provided his only comfort over countless lonely years, eking out a living selling snacks, cold drinks and sundry items to a trickle of customers in this rural area.
What I saw on his television simply would not register. One minute it seemed to be two giant sand castles — perhaps built by laughing, happy children — crumbling before an unseen wave; another minute, it appeared to be a scene of massive destruction from a King Kong movie. But in the minute I will never forget — the minute no American will ever forget — it was two commercial jets arcing across a blue New York sky, streaking into the World Trade Center,
leaving thousands of innocent people injured, dead, or unaccounted for. Before that minute, the part of me that had been typically American — glad to be one, but not always mindful of, nor thankful enough, for the opportunities and freedoms I too often had taken for granted — became as American as the stars and stripes sewn by Betsy Ross. In that minute, I grasped the true meaning of E Pluribus Unum: from many, one. In that minute, I be-
came every American who ever was, is, or yet to be. I became the first Pilgrim stepping on Plymouth Rock. I became Neil Armstrong stepping on the moon. I became Generals Lee and Grant, saluting each other at Appomattox. I became Alvin York of World War I. I became Audie Murphy of World War II. I became Ira Hayes, hoisting Old Glory at Iwo Jima. I became Roy Rogers, John Wayne, Spencer
Tracy, Ronald Reagan. I became Kate Smith, Ella Fitzgerald, Louis Armstrong, Willie Nelson, Elvis Presley. I became Jesse Owens, Knute Rockne, Chris Evert, Babe Ruth, Ted Williams, John Elway, Dale Earnhardt. I became Orville and Wilbur Wright, Charles Lindbergh, Amelia Earhart, Chuck Yeager. I became Billy Graham, Jonas Salk, William Faulkner. I became you, my fellow American, and you became me. We became one … one nation under God … in a New York minute.

Court of Appeals to hear cases at Mississippi State Associated Press
JACKSON — It’s back to the road for judges of the Mississippi Court of Appeals. A three-judge panel will hear arguments in two cases on Tuesday at Mississippi State University. The “Court on the Road” program made several stops earlier this year, including Jones County Community College, Mississippi Valley State University and the University of Mississippi. The cases are among dozens the court will take up during its NovemberDecember term. The Appeals Court periodically schedules oral arguments on college
campuses — and occasionally at other locations — as a teaching tool for students. The panel will hold arguments at Mississippi State’s Hunter Henry Center in Starkville. The first case before the panel is Christopher Smith’s appeal of his 2010 conviction for aggravated assault. Smith was convicted in Neshoba County in connection with the shooting of Nellie Woodward of Philadelphia while she stood in the carport of her home on Feb. 16, 2010. Smith was also found guilty of possession of a firearm by a convicted felon.

The death and burial of 2nd Lt. Willie Price BY TOM PARSON NPS Ranger
Have you ever been to the Corinth National Cemetery? It’s a beautiful spot, shady and green grass and row upon row of white marble headstones. It’s an active cemetery so there are plenty of recent burials, but the majority of the graves date back to the Civil War era. The cemetery was established in 1866, the year after the war ended, and all of the Union soldiers in the area were reinterred from their war-time graves. These guys were the dead from the Battle of Corinth as well as any number of other smaller fights like those at Brice’s Crossroads, Tupelo and Parker’s Crossroads. There are the 45 graves of the Northern soldiers killed at Davis Bridge, Tennessee, on the 5th of October, 1862. They were buried the day after the battle on the east bank of the Hatchie River and, like the others, were moved to the cemetery after the war. One is missing, however. There should have been 46. The fight at Davis Bridge was a brutal one. In the morning all the work was done on the west bank of the river and it all favored the Union. Around noon the Confederates retreated across the Davis Bridge and made a stand on the high ground on the opposite bank. The afternoon was a different story and the Southerners had the upper hand. There’s a dog leg turn in the Hatchie River as it meanders towards the site of the old bridge crossing. The Federals didn’t know about it and through a series of bad orders and bad luck, about 2,000 men got trapped in a position too small for a quarter of that number. For the Confederates on the heights, it was like shooting fish in a barrel. One of the fish was 2nd Lieutenant Willie Price of the 53rd Illinois Infantry. William Delano Price was all of 18 years old when he enlisted in the army. When he was 16, he had applied to West Point. But without a politician for a friend, he never stood a chance of securing a spot. But Private Willie Price was a quick study and soon he was Sergeant Willie Price and eventually a Lieutenant. His regiment left Il-

Lt. Willie Price, 53rd Illinois Infantry linois and arrived at the Battle of Shiloh shortly after the last shot was fired. Their baptism of fire would be during the
Siege of Corinth, in May of ’62, and later they were sent to serve as part of the garrison force at Memphis and then Bolivar.
Early on the morning of October 4, the 53rd Illinois set out with a Union column marching out of Bolivar to relieve
the embattled Federals at Corinth. At the Hatchie River, they ran into the retreating Confederate army under General Van Dorn and the Battle of Davis Bridge was begun. When the 53rd Illinois ran across the bridge and into the death-trap on the eastern bank, Willie was the lowest ranking of three officers in Company A. But his captain could not be found (he was rumored to be drunk) and the 1st Lieutenant was away with the Colonel. Willie found himself commanding the company in a no-win scenario. There was a very slight embankment on the field, the old riverbank from the days before the Hatchie had changed its course. Willie got his men to hunker down behind the scant cover, no more than three feet high, and undoubtedly he saved many a life. With his sword in his hand he called out, “There they are boys – give it to them!” They were Willie’s last words. “I saw him as the moment the bullet struck him,” recalled Sergeant Sam Baldwin, “taking effect in his right side and coming out under the left arm. He fell and died without a struggle.” The fight went on for a few more hours and eventually the Confederates pulled away and crossed the Hatchie a few miles
upstream at Crum’s Mill. There were over a 1,000 men killed, wounded and captured during the daylong fight. The Union dead were buried by their comrades on the east bank of the river, just under the heights that proved so deadly to them. Willie was buried in his uniform with his hat over his face and was doubled over in a fetal position. He was wrapped in a blanket and set into the grave which was lined, top and bottom, with rails from a nearby fence. Vines were placed over the rails to prevent dirt from reaching the body. Next to him lay the other nine men of his regiment killed that day. Upon the return to Bolivar, Captain Wright telegraphed the sad news to the Price family in Ottowa, Illinois. 1st Sergeant Patrick Ryan presumed the family would want to recover Willie’s body and sent Mr. Price a detailed letter on how to find the battlefield and his son’s burial site. “At the north side of the grave lays a large fallen tree running parallel with the grave. You will find at the foot of the grave on the butt of an old stump the leters W.D.P., if the headboard should be destroyed, you cannot fail to find him.” Mr. William Price arrived in West Tennessee a week later with a wagon and found the body of his son. He placed Willie in a metallic coffin and made the journey to Bolivar where he loaded the remains of his son onto a train. On October 16, all of Company A, along with Brigadier General Jacob Lauman, came to the depot to bid a final good bye to the young lieutenant. It was well that William Price made the effort. Four years later, when the remaining nine men of the 53rd Illinois were moved to Corinth, only three could be identified. The wooden headboards had deteriorated and there was no way to tell who was who. Those soldiers are resting in the Corinth National Cemetery in “unknown” graves with just a small marble stone and a number to remember them. Young men, like Willie Price, who gave there all for their country. (Tom Parson is a National Park Service ranger with the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center.)
Belmont school traces beginnings to late 19th century (Transcribed from History of Old Tishomingo County 1832-1940, compiled by S.M. Nabors.)
Belmont High School The earliest school situated within the present corporation limits of the town of Belmont was known as the Gum RaNae S p r i n g s Vaughn S c h o o l . E x i s t Historically ing from Speaking a b o u t 1872 to 1899, it took its name from an adjacent spring which furnished the water supply, and was first housed in an eighteen-bytwenty-four log building (later replaced by a frame structure) with the typical chimney and the usual rough fixtures of the period. It was first organized as a one-teacher school, and continued so until 1896, having as its teach-
ers such men as L.R. Davis, W.T. Clark, Joe Kay, J.T. Vaughn, W.T. Shook, P.A. Gates, R.M. Perry and R.L. Shook. With R.L. Shook and wife as principal and assistant, it became a two-teacher school in 1896 and continued so until 1899. The curriculum, ungraded, consisted of spelling, writing, reading, arithmetic, and geography. Teachers’ salaries ranged from $20.00 to $35.00 per month. In 1899, R.L. Shook, W.L. Cranford, J.C.Hallmark, G.A. Clark, C.S. Shook and others chartered what was known as the Belmont High School, which continued to function until 1908, using the Gum Springs quarters, a second one-room building having been erected in 1899. Among the instructors who taught the school during this period were T.A. Clark, W.I. Elledge, J.P. Matthews, and Jeff Busby. The courses of study were extended to include the approximate range of the present ele-
In 1908 ... the town of Belmont established the Belmont Separate School District, using a 2-story frame structure of three classrooms and an auditorium. mentary school, with perhaps a subject or two on the high school level. In 1908, with C.C. Shook as Mayor, W.W. Shook, clerk, Dr. R.L. Montgomery, Sam Beaty, and Dr. K.F. McRae, alderman, the town of Belmont established the Belmont Separate School District, using a 2-story frame structure of three classrooms and an auditorium. The faculty was now increased to three or four teachers, C.W. Davis being the first principal. Other prominent educators serving as principal during this period were D.R. Shelton and E. Strickland. The curriculum was approximately equivalent of the present three-year high school, ancient with modern history, two courses in Latin,
two courses in algebra, English and American literature, physical geography, geometry, and physics being offered. In the spring of 1920 the frame building burned, and for the two following sessions public buildings and churches of the towns were used to house the school. In 1921, the Belmont Separate District voted a bond issue of $25,000.00 to erect the present buildings, a brick structure of one story, containing a large auditorium and thirteen classrooms. In 1922-23, Supt. J.D. Langston, Miss Edith McRae, Mrs. J.C. Patterson, Mrs. B.L. Johnson, Mrs. Bill Davis, and Mrs. A.G.W. Byran composed the first faculty in the new building. Twelve units of standard high school
work were offered, this being increased the following year to sixteen. L.D. McCoy and J.D. Finch also served as superintendents, and under the latter’s superintendence, in 1927, and under his leadership that session, the separate school district was abolished and a consolidated district formed by the union of the Belmont territory and the Pittsburg school district. The following year the Fifth District Special Consolidated School District was organized by merging the consolidated districts of Belmont, Valley, and Cotton Springs. By this time the faculty had grown to 20, and the high school curriculum had increased to nineteen units. In 1931, H.L. Shook became superintendent. In 1933, a teacher’s home was purchased, a vocational building erected, and the institution became a Smith-Hughes school, with W.G. Jack teaching agriculture and Miss Susie Parker home economics. This same year a commercial de-
partment was added. East Prentiss became a part of the consolidation in 1933 and remained so until 1937. A brick veneer gymnasium was constructed (1934-36) with CWA and WPA assistance. The Allen Line Consolidated School was added to the District in 1934. At present the school district contains approximately sixty-five square miles of territory, has an assessed valuation of $314,000.00, enrolls according to the 1937-38 annual report 812 pupils, of whom 159 are in high school; has a faculty of twenty-two members, and offers 24 high school units distributed as follows: 4 in English, 5 in social science, 5 in vocational subjects, 3 in commerce, 4 in mathematics, and 3 in science.

Gun season for deer opens next Saturday Area hunters will be hitting the woods with a vengeance next weekend, as Mississippi and Tennessee will both be opening their regular gun season for deer on Saturday, Nov. 17. Normally, the Mississippi season goes through Dec. 1. This year, however, the season closes at the end of the day on Nov. 30 and gives way to the primitive weapons season running from Dec. 1-14, before resuming with the second gun season on Dec. 15. The Tennessee gun season goes non-stop from Nov. 17 all the way through to Jan. 6. Harvest numbers in Tennessee were better than theyâ€™ve been in a half a decade last year, and Mississippi had one of its best seasons ever in the number of trophy bucks harvested. Considering how this year and last
year mirror each o t h e r , thereâ€™s no reason to think similar results David wonâ€™t hapGreen pen again this time Outdoors around. E a c h year right before the opening of gun season, I like to do a little prognosticating of my own about what hunters can expect for the upcoming season. Anticipation of opening day is already running high without me throwing my two cents worth in, but I still like giving my viewpoint since deer hunting is my specialty, and my forecasts are usually pretty accurate. How will the numbers add up this year? The last two years virtually image each other, but thereâ€™s
striking differences that should make this deer season even better. Iâ€™ll explain. Many area hunters had a hard time seeing deer last season because of two main reasons. We had one of the warmest winters on record and there was an over abundance of food sources in the wild. Deer really had no reason to move during the daylight hours, which helped keep harvest numbers down in this area. Now, weâ€™ve got a deer herd that has expanded even more competing for the same food sources. The acorn mast crop is good again, but not quite as heavy as last year, which should help in deer sightings. Also, according to recent weather patterns, odds are good weâ€™ll have normal winter-like weather that should spur daytime deer movement. It wouldnâ€™t surprise me
at all to see an unusual high number of monster bucks taken on Mississippi lands this season. The psyche of the sportsman has changed along with the antler criteria used in determining a legal buck for harvest. Hunters let many more bucks walk these days, which allows many of them to reach maturity. There are still some hunters with the â€œIf itâ€™s brown, itâ€™s downâ€? mentality. All in all though, plentiful food supplies over the last few years and more bucks allowed to reach their maximum potential should equate to more huge bucks with impressive headgear roaming the landscape. With anticipation building for opening day, I want to leave you with a few things to think about before the big day arrives. Youâ€™ve probably already got a few places in mind about where to set up on
opening morning. Those places can be narrowed down to one precise spot with a little thought. In the area youâ€™ll be hunting, think about setting up where other hunters are likely to push deer in your direction, where two or three types of terrain converge together, or a funnellike area between feeding and bedding locations. The edge of anything different has promise. Sighting the ole gun in is usually one of the last rituals performed in getting prepared. Most fire a few rounds and then stick it back into the case till the day of the hunt. Thatâ€™s fine, except for one thing. The gun is sighted in, but you havenâ€™t really got a good feel for the gun. Routinely pick it up and practice aiming to get a comfortable feeling. It should get to where it feels like an extension of your own body.
Iâ€™ve made miraculous shots with pinpoint accuracy, but Iâ€™ve also missed broadside targets at no more than bow range. Iâ€™m sure the close-in shots were missed because I didnâ€™t renew the old feeling for the gun prior to season. Be prepared so you wonâ€™t be lying awake at night wondering how in the world you missed that big buck at point blank range. Itâ€™s not a good memory to recreate, especially if it happened on an opening day hunt.

Opening Day Success
Monster Nine-point Buck
Will Phillips of Alcorn County harvested this fivepoint buck weighing 140 pounds while hunting with his dad on opening day of the youth hunt in Mississsppi. He used his dadâ€™s 300 Winchester Magnum at Willâ€™s request and he downed the deer from 360 yards. Will is the son of Terry and Kim Phillips.
Wes Phillips of Alcorn County harvested this monster nine-point buck weighing 161 pounds with his .243 from 170 yards while hunting with his dad during the recent juvenile hunt in Mississippi. Wes is the 9-year-old son of Terry and Kim Phillips.

Divorce, thanks come together DEAR ABBY: A friend’s daughter was married several years ago. I attended the shower and her wedding, and gave gifts for both. Two months after the wedding, I received a thank-you note in which a form letter was enclosed that read, “By the way, we are now separated and getting a divorce”! I was shocked not only by the news, but even more that my gifts were not returned with the divorce announcement. This young lady is now being married again to a different man. If I attend the shower/wedding, am I obligated to give her another set of gifts? Or should I skip the shower and go to the wedding without giving another gift? What is proper in this case? — CONFUSED IN MASSACHUSETTS DEAR CONFUSED: The rule of etiquette regarding disposition of wedding gifts when a couple divorces after a short time is that any unused items (preferably in
LOS ANGELES — Traveling with a pet isn’t easy, since there are more rules than destinations. Kelly E. Carter, president of thejetsetpets.com and AOL’s resident pet travel expert, and Sheron Long, frequent international traveler and author of “Dog Trots Globe — To Paris and Provence,” share their tips: ■ Research before you go and make reservations early. Airlines offer a limited number of cabin spots for pets, and they are first-come, firstserved. ■ Know the weight, age and kennel size and closure restrictions for the airline you’re flying. ■ Fees vary for pets, so have your checkbook or credit card ready at the airport.
■ Know how much room you will have under the seat for your pet and your legs. Seatguru.com lists the dimensions on any seat on any aircraft. ■ Ask for a window seat to avoid your pet getting kicked if fellow passengers want to leave their seats. ■ Find out about frequent flier miles, since those policies differ with each airline. ■ To prevent accidents, don’t give your pet food or water on the flight. Ask for ice cubes and let the animal lick them as she needs them. ■ Carry a portfolio that includes your pet’s proof of rabies, vaccination records, a photo, your vet’s name and number, a list of medicines and references from managers of

You are entitled to that break time, and that is what it should be used for. DEAR ABBY: A family member has six cats and wants to have the Thanksgiving meal at her house. Every time I eat there, I find cat hair on the table, on the plates and in the food. I don’t want to cause hard feelings, but how do I handle
this? I’m allergic to cats. -- HOLD THE FUR IN AMARILLO, TEXAS DEAR HOLD THE FUR: Your health must come first. Arrange to celebrate Thanksgiving elsewhere and curtail your visit. If the relative attempts to “guilt” you into changing plans, explain that you cannot because you have become allergic to cat hair and dander and your doctor has instructed you to avoid exposure.

Arlington National Cemetery. In 1942, during World War II, Germany completed its occupation of France. In 1960, South Vietnamese President Ngo Dinh Diem survived a coup attempt by army rebels. (However, he was overthrown and killed in 1963.) In 1966, Gemini 12 blasted off from Cape Kennedy with astronauts James A. Lovell and Edwin “Buzz” Aldrin Jr. aboard. In 1972, the U.S. Army turned over its base at Long Binh to the South Vietnamese, symbolizing the end of direct U.S. military involvement in the Vietnam War. In 1987, following the failure of two Supreme Court nominations, President Ronald Reagan announced his choice of Judge Anthony M. Kennedy, who went on to win confirmation. In 1992, the Church of England voted to ordain women as priests.

Five examples of cinematographer’s best work BY CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie Critic
LOS ANGELES — Roger Deakins is the rare person I was actually nervous to interview because I’m such a huge fan of his work. When I talked to the veteran cinematographer in early 2008, after he’d received Academy Award nominations for both “No Country for Old Men” and “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford,” I found him to be lovely and humble, with a dry and self-effacing British wit — which naturally made me admire him even more. Now he’s shot the most gorgeous James Bond film yet: this week’s “Skyfall,” which marks his third collaboration with director Sam Mendes. But he’s probably best known
as the Coen brothers’ usual director of photography, having shot 11 of their films. He’s a ninetime Oscar nominee but, in a travesty of justice, he’s never won. Maybe “Skyfall” will change that. So we’re going to get a little nerdy this week and discuss five of the most excellent examples of Deakins’ work: ■ “The Man Who Wasn’t There” (2001): One of my favorite films from Joel and Ethan Coen, and one that’s underappreciated compared to the better-known “Fargo” or “O Brother, Where Art Thou?” Deakins photographed this darkly comic homage to film noir in lushly beautiful, striking black and white. He’s said this is his favorite film he’s made with the Coens; a longtime still
photographer, Deakins lights for light and shade anyway rather than color. The scene in which a hotshot lawyer played by Tony Shalhoub explains Heisenberg’s uncertainty principle while walking back and forth beneath rigidly structured beams of light is just breathtaking. ■ “No Country for Old Men” (2007): This is the Coens’ masterpiece, and it allowed Deakins to bring the harshly beautiful, seemingly endless expanse of scrub-brushed West Texas vividly to life. Much of this tale of crime and carnage along the Rio Grande, which won the best-picture Oscar and three others, is marked by a parched, bleak openness. But it’s also filled with many memorable, intimate images: a sil-
houetted reflection on a turned-off television screen, the shadow of a pair of boots in the crack of a hotel doorway, or a set of headlights shining into a crime scene at night. ■ “The Assassination of Jesse James by the Coward Robert Ford” (2007): Andrew Dominik’s film is set during the late 1800s in Missouri, as Jesse James (Brad Pitt) nears the end of his storied criminal career and is shot to death by a member of his gang. Deakins bathes everything with a soft, warm sense of nostalgia and melancholy, which may seem like an unusual choice given the violent subject matter. But the result is disarming and inspired. A nighttime train rob-
bery, for example, becomes an almost romantic ballet of light and shadow. ■ “Jarhead” (2005): I did not love this movie as a whole but Deakins created some powerfully dramatic visuals here. This was his first collaboration with Mendes (they’d also work together on 2008’s “Revolutionary Road”), based on the true story of Marines who fought in Operation Desert Storm, with Jake Gyllenhaal serving as our guide. As the film descends into its darkest period, Deakins’ depiction of a burning oil field is stunning — a bold swirl of orange and black, like some beautiful version of hell. And his shots of the desert, usually through an eye-level, hand-held camera, make the dry vast-
ness and shimmering sun feel palpable. ■ “A Serious Man” (2009): Not exactly the Coens’ best-known movie (although it earned Oscar nominations for best picture and original screenplay) and not even the showiest example of what Deakins can do. That would probably be “The Big Lebowski.” But the look of this film is so lovely and dreamlike, it draws you in. It’s inspired by the brothers’ youth in a predominantly Jewish suburb of Minneapolis in 1967, so it’s very specific in terms of costumes, music and production design. But Deakins’ often surreal cinematography adds to the off-kilter mood as we trudge along with the putupon Michael Stuhlbarg. See it for the “goy’s teeth” scene alone.
With ‘Skyfall,’ Craig puts definitive stamp on Bond series BY JAKE COYLE AP Entertainment Writer
NEW YORK — If you just looked at the cast and crew of “Skyfall,” you could easily confuse the assembled talent for a prestige costume drama. Director Sam Mendes, actors Judi Dench, Javier Bardem and Ralf Fiennes, and cinematographer Roger Deakins might just as easily be mounting a Shakespeare adaptation. But “Skyfall” is, of course, a James Bond film, and not only that, it’s the 23rd installment in a blockbuster franchise marking its 50th anniversary with only slightly less fanfare than the Queen’s Jubilee. “Skyfall” is a touch more high-minded than those previous 22 films, but it’s also argu-
ably the best crafted movie in Bond history. Those involved in the 007 empire overwhelmingly credit the higher trajectory for Bond to one man: Daniel Craig. “Daniel was like, ‘Everyone said yes! Look at this incredible cast!”’ says Mendes. “I’m like, ‘Mate, it’s because of you.”’ Now in his third film as 007, “Skyfall” is Craig’s most emphatic statement yet on how he’ll define his stewardship of the beloved British spy. What’s clearest on “Skyfall” is that Craig has taken full ownership of Bond, not only filling out a tux, but molding the entire production. The result is the bestreviewed Bond film yet, one that’s already made
a whopping $287 million in its first 10 days of international release. “Skyfall” is the culmination of The Daniel Craig Years, a chapter in Bond history that’s proving a resounding success. Craig’s first Bond film, 2006’s “Casino Royale,” was a visceral introduction to his version of 007. Less successful was 2008’s “Quantum of Solace,” which was marred by script problems partly caused by the writer’s strike. The film’s heavy somberness disappointed many and fueled the correction in tone on “Skyfall.” After the postmodern deconstruction of “Quantum,” “Skyfall” puts Bond back together, restoring many familiar elements,
Horoscopes Sunday, November 11, 2012 BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Creator’s Syndicate
Yesterday, Neptune, the planet of dreams, ended a five-month retrograde stint through Pisces. Since Pisces is ruled by Neptune, this part of the sky is particularly charged with psychic energy now. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You’ll be jolted from a mental routine. When a thought pattern is interrupted, the incompleteness of the cycle will help you realize for the first time the automatic loop your mind has been following. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You expect much more from yourself than you would ever demand of others. You deserve your own compassion. Ease up. Allow yourself to be comfortable at the least, and perhaps even happy or indulged. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). Don’t make the mistake of thinking the only reason people like you is that you contribute to making their lives better. Yes, you’re generous. But you have other inherently loveable qualities. Believe in yourself. CANCER (June 22-July 22). If you’ve been trying to lose a bad habit and it’s not working, try replacing the habit instead. Respond to the same cues, but put a new action in place of the old one, preferably something with a similar reward. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). The social vibes are strong today. As long as you’re making new friends, you may as well go for people who will enrich your life in some way. Think about what you want. Make a list and keep it in mind.
VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You like to stay in control of your time, but this is not always possible. Children and those who act like them have a very different perception of time than you do, and this could be an issue. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). There’s an iceberg situation going on in your social life. Under the surface of a cordial exchange there is a massive implication. Stay aware of the true meaning of interactions. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You’ll see the signs and read them in your own way. Others will have a different interpretation. Your way is still the best for you. Act on what you know, and you’ll be ready for the future. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Some of your friendships grow naturally, and others require constant care. You don’t mind the high-maintenance connections now because they are also highly rewarding. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll prove through your actions that you have your priorities straight. Read the best books first. Also, give your attention to the tasks that are most important to you, and to the dearly beloved people in your life. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). The work you do gives people ideas. They’ll associate you with industriousness and give you more work. If you relax as expertly as you labor, you’ll get more opportunities for leisure. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Every accomplishment is comprised of several smaller accomplishments. You’ll feel unsure as to what is involved, and that’s natural. It’s the kind of thing you just have to figure out as you go.
albeit with certain twists. Ben Whishaw inherits the role of Q, Naomie Harris settles in as Moneypenny and Fiennes comes aboard as the new head of MI6. Bardem plays a flamboyant, effete former MI6 agent whose cyber destruction is motivated by a past with M, the role Judi Dench has inhabited for seven films. Overall, “Skyfall” is set in a more realistic world where MI6’s activities are answerable to government and where the threat of terrorism has firmly displaced Cold War fears as the dominant concern. It was Craig who, on a sudden instinct over conversation at a party, asked Mendes — better known for his stage direction and
dramas like “American Beauty” and “Revolutionary Road” than action movies — if he wanted to direct. The two had previously worked together on 2002’s “Road to Perdition,” before Craig’s stardom swelled. “It mattered that it came from him,” says Mendes. “I don’t think I would have done it without Dan. It’s much easier going to Javier or Ralph knowing they’re already into the franchise because of Daniel. He’s made it cool in a different way.” Craig also approached Bardem, a selective actor whose performance in “Skyfall” is already being considered among the best Bond villains. Producers Barbara Broccoli and Michael G.
Wilson, who years ago inherited control of the franchise from their father Albert “Cubby” Broccoli, have been quite content with Craig’s initiative. The 44-year-old actor is signed for two more Bond films, but Broccoli would have it be longer. “We’re not going to let him get away,” says Broccoli. “We want him to keep making these films as long as he’s willing.” “Daniel gives you more opportunities,” Wilson adds. “He is definitely the main reason people want to be in these films.” Mendes credits another inspiration: Christopher Nolan, whose “Dark Knight” trilogy of Batman films, Mendes says, “made B movies into A films.”

Museum exhibit describes POWs held by Nazis BY JANET MCCONNAUGHEY Associated Press
NEW ORLEANS â€” A violin made from bed slats, a bomber jacket, and journals filled with humor, nostalgia, sorrow and boredom help to tell the stories of the 92,820 Allied soldiers held in nearly 100 Nazi prisoner of war camps. â€œGuests of the Third Reich,â€? an exhibit opening on Veterans Day at the National World War II Museum is about those â€œKriegies,â€? as they called themselves â€” short for â€œKriegsgefangener,â€? German for â€œprisoner of war.â€? Items on display through July 7 are among those to be shown in the Liberation Pavilion planned for completion in 2016. That pavilion will also have a section about POWs held in Japanese POW camps where more than 40 percent of the 27,465 Americans captured in the Pacific died. But of 93,941 who surrendered to Germany, 92,820 survived. Japan had not ratified the Geneva
Conventions for humane treatment of POWs. Germany had, and generally followed its requirements. Not always. One part of the exhibit is about POWs who were sent to concentration camps or executed. Those in the concentration camps included 350 Americans sent from Stalag IXB to the slave labor camp in Berga because they were or â€œlookedâ€? Jewish, and 168 Allied airmen sent to nearby Buchenwald. Another 362 American POWS and more than 100 Belgians were killed in groups, including 84 shot in the â€œMalmedy Massacre.â€? The exhibit is divided in five sections: Capture, Camp Life, Liberation, Global Conflict â€” which includes the â€œWar Crimesâ€? area â€” and After the Camps. Camp Life includes seven â€œwartime logsâ€? â€” diaries provided by the YMCA to be sent in Red Cross packages for POWs. Their contents have been scanned and put on iPads so visitors can
page through them. â€œThereâ€™s probably about 700 pages in all if you read all of them,â€? said curator Kimberly Guise. Some of the diariesâ€™ contents also are on the website set up for the exhibit. Early American POWs were airmen, who hit the ground at a rate of about 400 a month in 1943. Then came the Battle of the Bulge, when nearly 23,000 Americans, most of them infantry, were captured in December 1944. Most of the logs include drawings of burning aircraft or memorials to dead crewmen, Guise said. The men also described lighter moments. â€œThere are a number of ways we spend our spare time. As I sit here writing this, there are two across from me studying French, some are playing cards, others are reading books, the rest have the two guitars, anything to keep your mind occupied and not think of home,â€? wrote
Bruce L. Worrell, captured in Italy in May 1994 during service with the 85th Infantry Divisionâ€™s 359th Infantry Regiment and held at Stalag IIB. Guise said, â€œThere were whole colleges that were set up. They called them barbed-wire universities.â€? The diaries, each printed with the title â€œA Wartime Log,â€? also include home addresses of men in the camp, cartoons, drawings of other POWs, maps, photographs from home, and lovingly detailed drawings of U.S. bombers and of pinup girls, sometimes together. There are song parodies and also verses clipped from magazines and newspapers. The flight jacket was worn by Paul Hayslip, the only crewman on the B-26 bomber â€œRamblinâ€™ Wreckâ€? who was able to parachute to safety before it crashed. A photograph shows him and his crew at Louisianaâ€™s Barksdale Field, now Barksdale Air Force Base.
