City voters will have say on liquor BY JEBB JOHNSTON

Corinth voters get their say on the sale of liquor in the city on Tuesday. Voting will take place at City Hall — not the county precincts — between 7 a.m. and 7 p.m. for the city-only liquor vote. Corinth residents are voting “for” or “against” the legal sale of alcoholic beverages in the city. Absentee voting levels point to a substantial turnout for Tuesday’s election. The number of absentees cast had reached 162 by Thursday morning. With a couple of days to go, includ-

ing Saturday morning, and with some still to be returned by mail, the number was expected to climb. The city is using 10 electronic voting machines for the election — three for each of the three voting rooms with one on standby in case a machine goes down. The configuration will be last names A through G and all handicapped voting in the former police department area; last names H through O voting in the former conference room and mayor’s office area, entering at the west entrance; and

last names P through Z at the east or main entrance to City Hall. “It will be set up similar to what we do for a general election,” said City Clerk Vickie Roach. “We’re planning for a bigger turnout than what we had for Future Fare.” The issue will appear on the ballot as proposition 1 with the following wording: “Shall the city of Corinth, Mississippi permit, except as otherwise provided under section 67-9-1 Mississippi Code 1972, as amended, the sale, receipt, storage and transportation for the purpose

of sale of alcoholic beverages as permitted by section 67-114 Mississippi Code of 1972, as amended.” Voters will choose either “for the legal sale of alcoholic liquors” or “against the legal sale of alcoholic liquors.” While city-only votes have been held on beer several times in the past, it is the first time Corinth residents alone will vote on liquor as a result of the new law affecting cities of a certain population in dry counties. Testing of the voting machines will begin at 8 a.m. Saturday at City Hall.

10 people indicted on trafficking charges BY BRANT SAPPINGTON

Eight area residents are among 10 people accused of taking part in a drug trafficking operation distributing marijuana and cocaine throughout the region. A federal indictment filed this week alleges the group arranged the purchase and shipment of the drugs into the region, stored the drugs at “stash

houses” located in the area and transported and distributed the drugs to buyers throughout North Mississippi. Charged in the indictment filed in U.S. District Court in Oxford are Jay Hill, 29, Quavis Deron Green, 25, Antonio Bean, 35, Kenneth Scales, 48, and Arielle Wells, 23, all of Corinth along with 36-yearold Eric Mills of Rienzi and Shawn Michael Brown, 38 and

Marty Lambert, 43, both of Booneville. Denorris Howell, 29, of Waterford and Brandon Demario Wells, 23, of Decatur, Ill. are also charged. The entire group faces a federal charge of conspiracy to distribute the drugs. They each face up to 20 years in prison and a fine of up to $1 million on the conspiracy charges. The penalties could rise further for any of the de-

fendants if they have been previously convicted of a drug felony. Mills also faces two additional counts in the case. He is additionally charged with possession of a firearm while engaged in drug trafficking and possession of a firearm by a convicted felon. Arraignments in the case are scheduled for the coming week.

Hospital delivers holiday magic BY STEVE BEAVERS

Magnolia Regional Health Center presented the first gift of the Christmas season. The hospital's “Winter Wonderland” at the Crossroads Arena gave area youngsters the complete North Pole experience at no cost. Santa Claus and his many elves were on hand to entertain the young crowd. Even Rudolph made the trip to have his photo taken with children. “The kids love it so much, but I think we get the bigger blessing out of it,” said hospital volunteer Wendy Hurley. Workers at the event all volunteered their time on Saturday. MRHC started “Winter Won-

derland” in 2005 to provide a holiday experience for children and families who might not be able to participate in festivities due to financial reasons, according to Tracy Moore, MRHC Executive Assistant to the CEO and Magnolia Foundation Coordinator. Although the event was free, individuals were asked to bring either a non-perishable food item or a donation to the Amen Food Pantry. “I love it and have come every year,” said Angie Davis of Chewalla, Tn. while granddaughter Alisa Kate Mullins dropped off her letter to Santa. Davis brought all three grandchildren to take in the experience. Staff photo by Steve Beavers

Magnolia Regional Health Center’s Stacie Mitchell helps Alisa Kate Mullins mail her letter to Santa.


“It's a lot of fun for us,” said hospital volunteer Amy Carmichiel. “We get the opportunity to experience the wonders of Christmas.” Carmichiel was one of a trio of helpers at the North Pole Mailroom. “These letters are so im-

portant to kids,” she said. Magnolia's Kristen Dalton was making sure all the boys and girls were behaving as she patrolled the arena floor as the Elf Snowflake. “She is looking for good boys and girls,” said Lisa Spencer, dressed as Mrs. Claus. Children had the oppor-

tunity to be involved with fun activities such as: ■ Snacks, treats and goodies at Mrs. Claus’ Kitchen & Santa’s Sweet Shop. ■ Holiday crafts for children at Santa's Workshop. ■ Mini-train rides at Santa’s Express Train Station. ■ Kids GET Fit activity

at Elf Exercise Park. Inflatable jumpers and a show by an ice carver is also slated at the park. ■ The North Pole Mailroom will be the site were children can write and mail their letters to Santa. A silent auction of Christmas trees, holiday wreaths and decor was also held along with a gift raffle.

Anti-abortion activist fined for trespassing Associated Press

JACKSON — A state judge has convicted an anti-abortion activist of disorderly conduct and trespassing charges for an altercation on a sidewalk adjacent to a Jackson high school in March. The Clarion-Ledger reports that Hinds County Justice Court Judge Ivory Britton fined Kristina Garza $5,000 and gave her a suspended sixmonth jail sentence after finding her guilty of the charges Friday. Britton also issued an

arrest warrant for another activist, Brianna Baxter, who failed to appear in court to face the same charges. Lawyers for Garza and Baxter said their clients were passing out antiabortion literature on a sidewalk between Murrah High School and a curb where buses picked up students. The women, both California residents, allegedly ignored orders by campus enforcement officers to move to the other side of the street.

Corinth, Miss.

Our View

Johnson does great job with Law Enforcement Training Academy Under the excellent leadership of Director Bowen Johnson, the Northeast Mississippi Law Enforcement Training Academy has given no-cost training in advanced topics to more than 3,600 law enforcement officers since its inception in 2009. Based at Northeast at Corinth, the center recently added Blue Mountain College to its partner agencies along with Corinth, Alcorn County, Farmington and Northeast Mississippi Community College. Johnson, a retired special agent for the FBI, recently told the newspaper he believes it has improved the skills of law officers while serving as an economic boost to the community by drawing officers from six states to participate in training. A recent session on pursuit policies drew about 60 to Corinth for the largest class to date. Many out of town officers eat and shop in Corinth and visit local historic sites. The center’s major focus has been to offer advanced level courses such as computer crime and sexual assault investigations that are relevant, but not usually readily available. With many agencies facing budget cuts, many of the officers would not be able to attend if the training were not offered at no charge, noted the director recently. During his last 13 years with the FBI, Johnson was a liaison with law enforcement across the state, and he has drawn on those connections to bring instructors to the training center. Working with federal, state and local sources and the business community and with ensured minimum class sizes, the center has been able to offer the training at no cost.. Corinth Police Chief David Lancaster told the newspaper recently the facility helps his department keep a full staff by having the training available locally. With Corinth and Alcorn County officers often participating in the training, they are able to build relationships with officers from throughout the region that will benefit their work in the field, Johnson believes. We agree. “That others may live” is the motto of the training center. That says it all about its mission and purpose. We are fortunate to have the training center in our community and we thank dedicated Director Bowen Johnson for all of his efforts to make it a success. Daily Corinthian

More notes about ‘fiscal cliff’ charade One of the big advantages that President Obama has, as he plays “chicken” with the Congressional Republicans along the “fiscal cliff,” is that Obama is a master of the plausible lie, which will never be exposed by the mainstream media — nor, apparently, by the Republicans. A key lie that has been repeated over and over, largely unanswered, is that President Bush’s “tax cuts for the rich” cost the government so much lost tax revenue that this added to the budget deficit-- so that the government cannot afford to allow the cost of letting the Bush tax rates continue for “the rich.” It sounds very plausible, and constant repetition without a challenge may well be enough to convince the voting public that, if the Republican-controlled House of Representatives does not go along with Barack Obama’s demands for more spending and higher tax rates on the top 2 percent, it just shows that they care more for “the rich” than for the other 98 percent. What is remarkable is how easy it is to show how completely false Obama’s argument is. That also makes it completely inexplicable why the Republicans have not done so.

The official statistics which show plainly how wrong B a r a c k Obama is Thomas can be found Sowell in his own “Economic Columnist Report of the President” for 2012, on page 411. You can look it up. You may be able to find a copy of the “Economic Report of the President” for 2012 at your local public library. Or you can buy a hard copy from the Government Printing Office or download an electronic version from the Internet. For those who find that “a picture is worth a thousand words,” they need only see the graphs published in the November 30th issue of Investor’s Business Daily. What both the statistical tables in the “Economic Report of the President” and the graphs in Investor’s Business Daily show is that (1) tax revenues went up — not down — after tax rates were cut during the Bush administration, and (2) the budget deficit declined, year after year, after the cut in tax rates that have been blamed by Obama for increasing the deficit. Indeed, the New York Times reported in 2006:

“An unexpectedly steep rise in tax revenues from corporations and the wealthy is driving down the projected budget deficit this year.” While the New York Times may not have expected this, there is nothing unprecedented about lower tax rates leading to higher tax revenues, despite automatic assumptions by many in the media and elsewhere that tax rates and tax revenues automatically move in the same direction. They do not. The Congressional Budget Office has been embarrassed repeatedly by making projections based on the assumption that tax revenues and tax rates move in the same direction. This has happened as recently as the George W. Bush administration and as far back as the Reagan administration. Moreover, tax revenues went up when tax rates went down, as far back as the Coolidge administration, before there was a Congressional Budget Office to make false predictions. The bottom line is that Barack Obama’s blaming increased budget deficits on the Bush tax cuts is demonstrably false. What caused the decreasing budget deficits after the Bush tax cuts to suddenly reverse and start increasing was the mortgage crisis. The deficit

increased in 2008, followed by a huge increase in 2009. So it is sheer hogwash that “tax cuts for the rich” caused the government to lose tax revenues. The government gained tax revenues, not lost them. Moreover, “the rich” paid a larger amount of taxes, and a larger share of all taxes, after the tax rates were cut. That is because people change their economic behavior when tax rates are changed, contrary to what the Congressional Budget Office and others seem to assume, and this can stimulate the economy more than a government “stimulus” has done under either Bush or Obama. Yet there is no need to assume that Barack Obama is mistaken about the way to get the economy out of the doldrums. His top priority has always been increasing the size and scope of government. If that means sacrificing the economy or the truth, that is no deterrent to Obama. That is why he is willing to play chicken with Republicans along the fiscal cliff.

Referendum lengthens dark shadows over Middle East The opening scene-setter for the 1996 film “Independence Day” might serve as a metaphor for what Egyptians could face if a draft constitution written by a panel dominated by Islamists and based on Sharia law wins approval in a referendum: “A loud rumble is heard. Suddenly, we are covered in darkness as the shadow engulfs us. Only the image of our Earth hangs in the air, until a huge silhouetted object suddenly blocks our view.” Egypt could well embrace the dark side (to mix movie metaphors) and become the region’s biggest force for extremism, just ahead of the Wahaabists in Saudi Arabia, though Iran with its race toward nuclear weapons poses the most immediate danger. The lowlights of the draft constitution ought to alarm all but the most complacent, as well as those who have been in denial, claiming we have nothing to fear from this “peaceful religion,” which somehow keeps providing examples to the contrary. According to the Associat-

ed Press, the new draft says, “...the principles of Islamic law” are to be enshrined in Cal the Egyptian Thomas constitution. Previously, Columnist notes the AP, those principles were open to interpretation, but in the latest draft a separate new article is added that defines “principles” by “pointing to particular theological doctrines and their rules,” which will likely result in a stricter interpretation. Other articles in the draft fail to guarantee equal rights for women, or tolerance for other religious beliefs, including, presumably, moderate Islamic beliefs that conflict with the doctrines of the Muslim Brotherhood. Egyptians won’t be allowed to “insult or defame the Prophet,” but what constitutes an insult and the punishment for the affront is not spelled out. Another article preserves military tribunals, allowing them to try civilians. AP

estimates 11,000 civilians “were tried before military tribunals during the postMubarak transition...” The constitution does not ban slavery, according to AP, or guarantee that Egypt will adhere to international rights treaties. All of this was foreseeable, if the West had listened to what Islamists promised to do when they achieved political power. We’re not dealing with classified information here. In other countries where Islamists have gained power — in our era and throughout history — they have behaved toward others with differing beliefs and religions exactly as they are behaving now. Except now, opponents scatter for fear of being labeled an “Islamophobe.” Are they Islamophobes if they quote Islamists’ words and point to their actions in an effort to warn others what is coming? Free people ought to be afraid and act accordingly. The cloud has also spread to Northern Mali where Islamic extremists have banned music in a land where it has long been part of their culture. The

Washington Post reports that Northern Mali is “one of the richest reservoirs of music on the (African) continent, (but) is now an artistic wasteland. Hundreds of musicians have fled south to Bamako, the capital, and to other towns and neighboring countries, driven out by hardliners who have decreed any form of music — save for the tunes set to Koranic verses — as being against their religion.” It is fine to say Islamists don’t represent “mainstream Islam,” whatever that is. But if moderate Islam exists, it is having great difficulty asserting itself in the face of extremists who have the guns, the knives and the will to impose their creed on others, killing or imprisoning anyone who resists. This is the future and it has policy implications for the United States and every other country that is free and tolerant of all beliefs and wishes to remain so.

State Briefs Associated Press

Driver killed in bus crash identified VANCLEAVE — Investigators believe excessive speed was a factor in a deadly collision between a Vancleave school bus and another vehicle earlier this week. Jackson County Sheriff Mike Byrd said the cause of the crash that killed the driver of the vehicle, 46-year-old Brian Orchard, of Vancleave, remained under investigation. The Sun Herald reports that seven elementary and middle school students were taken to area hospitals and treated for minor injuries following Thursday’s crash.

School counselors were available Friday for students involved in the incident. Byrd said Orchard’s 1993 Saturn crossed the road’s center line and collided with the front of the bus.

Death row inmate pursues new trial JACKSON — A death row inmate convicted of killing two university students in 1992 is continuing his quest to convince a court he deserves a new trial. Willie Jerome Manning is asking the U.S. Supreme Court to give him a new trial, saying that his defense was ineffective and that black resi-

dents were inappropriately excluded from his Oktibbeha County jury. The 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals turned Manning down in July. The court said Manning filed his post-conviction claim too late to be heard in state courts. The office of Attorney General Jim Hood will ask to have an execution date set if the U.S. Supreme Court denies the request, said Hood spokeswoman Jan Schaefer. The 5th Circuit said the judgment against Manning became final on April 5, 1999, when the U.S. Supreme Court declined to hear his appeal. In a post-conviction petition, an inmate argues he has found new


evidence — or a possible constitutional issue — that could persuade a court to order a new trial. The 5th Circuit said that under state law, Manning had until April 5, 2000, to file such a claim. Court records show Manning did not file anything with the Mississippi Supreme Court until Oct. 8, 2001. Manning, now 44, received two death sentences for the 1992 slayings of two Mississippi State University students, Jon Steckler and Tiffany Miller. On Dec. 11, 1992, the bodies of Miller and Steckler were discovered in rural Oktibbeha County. Both students had been shot to death, and

Miller’s car was missing. The vehicle was found the next morning. Prosecutors said Manning was arrested after he attempted to sell certain items belonging to the victims. His conviction was upheld by the Mississippi Supreme Court, which also denied Manning’s post-conviction petition. In 2005, Manning filed a petition in U.S. District Court asking that the state court be ordered to hear his post-conviction claims. The judge found Manning did not file the post-conviction petition by the deadline set by law, but said the inmate could appeal the issues of ineffective counsel and the jury to the 5th


Man sentenced for emailed threats GULFPORT — A 52-yearold Alabama man has been sentenced on federal charges of sending threatening emails to a Mississippi couple. U.S. Attorney Gregory K. Davis says Jerry Ray Woodward of Mobile. Ala., was sentenced this week tin federal court in Gulfport o serve 21 months in federal prison followed by three years of supervised release. Davis says pleaded guilty in August to charges that, while living in Florida, he sent an email to a person in Mississippi with a threatening letter attached.

ers not far from the bear exhibit. Zoo educator Liz Schmidt tells The PostStandard that she rushed over from the reindeer pen to find the 21-yearold woman pushing out the baby. Other zoo workers arrived with blankets to

keep mom and baby warm. The zoo's elephant expert herded away curious zoo patrons. An ambulance soon arrived to take the newborn to a hospital. Zoo Director Ted Fox says the zoo plans to send a gift to the family.

Crist tweets he’s joining Democrats TALLAHASSEE, Fla. — Former Florida Gov. Charlie Crist, who was elected the state's chief executive as a Republican and then ran unsuccessfully for the U.S. Senate as an independent, announced on Twitter that he's switching to the Democratic Party. The announcement Friday night fanned speculation that Crist would seek to regain his old job from Republican Gov. Rick Scott in 2014. Crist sent out a tweet that said, “Proud and honored to join the Democratic Party in the home of President @Barack Obama!” The tweet included a photo of a smiling Crist and his wife Carole as he held up a Florida voter registration application. The Tampa Bay Times reports that Crist signed the papers changing his affiliation from independent to Democrat at a Christmas reception at the White House. President Barack Obama greeted the news with a fist bump. “I've had friends for years tell me, 'You know Charlie, you're a Democrat and you don't know it,'” Crist told the newspaper Friday night. He cited the Republican Party's shift to the right on a range of issues, including immigration, education and the environment. Crist was elected Florida governor in 2006 while in the GOP. As he moved to run for the U.S. Senate in 2010, he faced a tough primary challenge from the right and bolted the GOP to run as an independent. He lost a three-way Senate contest in 2010 to Republican Marco Rubio. Crist, 56, spoke at the Democratic National Convention in Charlotte, N.C., that nominated Obama for a second term and campaigned for his re-election. Crist's decision to switch to a Democrat will increase

To the Citizens of the City of Corinth:

speculation that he intends to challenge Scott, a former hospital chain CEO who has struggled with low favorability ratings since taking office. Crist has already criticized Scott for refusing to extend early voting despite pleas from U.S. Sen. Bill Nelson and other Democrats. But it is unlikely that Crist would get a clear path to the Democratic nomination. Former State Sen. Nan Rich, D-Weston, has already jumped into the race and former Chief Financial Officer Alex Sink could run. Sink barely lost the 2010 governor's race to Scott. Some Democrats remain wary of Crist and even outgoing Florida Democratic Party chairman Rod Smith has joked that just because someone joins the congregation, “you don't make them the preacher.” Steve Schale, a Democratic political consultant who worked on Obama's Florida campaign, called a Crist a “viable Democrat.”

Arizona man claims half of Powerball jackpot PHOENIX — Fallout from the looming fiscal cliff has drifted into the Powerball arena. A man who lottery officials announced Friday has claimed his half of the $587.5 million Powerball jackpot, decided to collect the winnings now and not next year because of the financial uncertainty posed by the nation's ongoing financial impasse. The man, who is in his 30s from a wealthy Phoenix suburb, decided to remain anonymous after he bought $10 worth of tickets and kept the winning slip in the visor of his car overnight before realizing he was a multimillionaire. He gave $20 to the cashier of a Fountain Hills convenience store, and the clerk nudged him to spend the entire amount on tickets. He declined the offer. After the man and his wife learned of their good fortune, the husband pulled together a team of financial advisers and decided to take all of his share this month to avoid potentially higher taxes in 2013, said Karen Bach, a lottery official. “He did have concern with the uncertainty with the fiscal cliff in 2013,” Bach said, referring to the federal fiscal situation that could result in higher

income tax rates. The man and his lawyer met with lottery officials Friday, and he opted to take the cash option of $192 million before taxes. Lottery officials said his wife owns half the prize because Arizona is a community property state. “He and his wife couldn't believe it,” Bach said. “They checked the numbers over and over again — absolutely shocked.” Bach said the man is smart and wants to take time to make a solid financial plan and set up a charitable entity to aid causes that he and his wife support. Lottery officials say the man told them he enjoys his job and has no immediate plans to quit. The unidentified winner later issued a statement that said: “It is difficult to express just how thankful we are for this wonderful gift. We are extremely grateful and feel fortunate to now have an increased ability to support our charities and causes. Obviously, this has been incredibly overwhelming and we have always cherished our privacy.” The statement directed all inquiries to an Arizona law firm, which didn't immediately return a call after business hours Friday.

Obama: Republicans blocking tax cuts WASHINGTON — President Barack Obama said Saturday that Republicans in the House are blocking a bill that would prevent a tax increase on the first $250,000 of income earned by all Americans. The Democraticcontrolled Senate has approved the measure, but Obama said House Republicans have “put forward an unbalanced plan that actually lowers rates for the wealthiest Americans.” Obama supports a plan to raise taxes on families earning more than $250,000. In his weekly radio and Internet address, Obama said “the math just doesn't work” on the GOP plan. Obama's comments mark the fourth time since his re-election that he has used the radio address to push for middle-class tax cuts as part of a plan to avert a looming fiscal cliff — and his most sharply partisan tone.

We the congregation of First Baptist Church of Corinth met at a scheduled business meeting on December 5, 2012, and elected to make a public declaration of our belief in regard to the continued use, sale and distribution of all alcoholic beverages in the City of Corinth. Realizing that alcohol consumption is responsible for untold thousands of accidents, deaths, illnesses, and dysfunctional families, we express our total opposition to the advertising, manufacturing, distribution, sale and consumption of alcoholic beverages. We believe that the use, sale and distribution of any alcoholic beverage is fundamentally a moral issue. As Christians our morality should be consistent with the conviction that Jesus Christ is Lord. Christians should be as Christ was, sensitive to the things which degrade human life or hold it back from its highest potential. We believe it is certainly inconsistent with Christian morality that human beings, created in God’s own image, be victimized by any substance as personally and socially destructive as alcohol. Because of our great love for the people of this city, we the people of First Baptist Church are deeply concerned about the serious damage that the continued accessibility of alcoholic beverages will have on our county’s children, young people and families. We as a congregation do not believe that revenue from the sale of this proven killer is worth the lives of children, young people and families that have been sacrificed and will most definitely be sacrificed. Because of our beliefs stated previously within this letter, the congregation of First Baptist Church urges the citizens of the City of Corinth to vote against any referendum that would legalize the sale, use or distribution of alcoholic beverages. In Christian Love, The Membership of First Baptist Church Corinth, Mississippi Dennis Smith, Pastor Paid for by First Baptist Church, Corinth, MS

Cale Jr., UNA president. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our intention is not only to help advance the students and alumni of UNA as they seek this course of study. We particularly want to help advance communities and populations throughout this region,

and we are grateful to our colleagues at Alabama A&M for joining us in this exciting endeavor.â&#x20AC;? The program will begin offering advanced-standing courses at UNA in January. Advanced-study courses are for students already holding a bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s degree in social work from a regionally accredited institution. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The need for advancedlevel social work professionals is great, particularly as the demographics of our nation continue to shift,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Andrew Hugine Jr., Alabama A&M president. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Institutions of higher education are nobly forming bonds to better serve student needs and to become better stewards of often declining resources.

Kossuth bounces back with wins BY H. LEE SMITH II


WALNUT — The Alcorn Central Golden Bears jumped out to a 22-4 lead after one quarter and cruised to a 67-45 decision over Fayette Academy in the second of four games Saturday at the Ruritian Shoot Out. John Wiley Works scored nine of his game-high 19 points in the second, keeping Central on par with Fayette and giving the Bears (7-2) a 37-19 lead at the break.

Jonathan Lancaster tallied 12 and Ben McIntyre added 11, including two of Central’s four extra-point buckets. In the opener, Fayette Academy outscored Alcorn Central 32-24 in the second half of the girls’ contest en route to a 50-37 win. Gwyn Foster paced the Lady Bears (2-6) with 11 points.

BALDWYN — The third time proved to be a charm for Kossuth High School. Playing for the third time in as many nights, the Aggies and Lady Aggies both claimed victories in the Doc Vandiver Classic held Saturday in Baldwyn. KHS is off until Friday when it makes the short trek to Alcorn Central. The doubleheader will not count in the Division 1-3A standings. The Lady Aggies began the six-game setup with a 57-53 win over Mooreville. Kossuth (7-3) had split their two contests in the Ripley Classic,

with Friday’s loss to the host Lady Tigers ending a fourgame winning streak. KHS led after each of the first three quarters. The Lady Troopers outscored the Lady Aggies 17-15 over the final eight minutes, but couldn’t overcome a six-point deficit. Marlee Sue Bradley scored a game-high 17 points for Kossuth, including eight in an 18-point second quarter. Baylee Turner and Parrish Tice added 14 points each. The Aggies jumped out to a 12-5 lead after one quarter and never looked back in besting Calhoun City 6041. The win was the first in three tries during the week

and ended a three-game slide overall. Kossuth had Calhoun City more than doubled at the break (30-13) in getting back above the .500 mark in its ninth outing. Josh Whitaker paced the Aggies with a game-high 24 points. Justin Mills followed with 15 and Jacob Wilcher added 10.

Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel poses with the Heisman Trophy after becoming the first freshman to win the award on Saturday.

Johnny Heisman: Freshman claims award Associated Press

NEW YORK — Johnny Football just got himself a way cooler nickname: Johnny Heisman. Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel became the first freshman to win the Heisman Trophy, taking college football’s top individual prize Saturday night after a record-breaking debut. Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te’o finished a distant second and Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein was third in the voting. In a Heisman race with two nontraditional candidates, Manziel broke through the class barrier and kept Te’o from becoming the first purely defensive player to win the

award. Manziel drew 474 firstplace votes and 2,029 points from the panel of media members and former winners. “I have been dreaming about this since I was a kid, running around the backyard pretending I was Doug Flutie, throwing Hail Marys to my dad,” he said after hugging his parents and kid sister. Manziel seemed incredibly calm after his name was announced, hardly resembling the guy who dashes around the football field on Saturday. He simply bowed his head, and later gave the trophy a quick kiss. “I wish my whole team

could be up here with me,” he said with a wide smile. Te’o had 321 first-place votes and 1,706 points and Klein received 60 firsts and 894 points. Just a few days after turning 20, Manziel proved times have truly changed in college football, and that experience can be really overrated. For years, seniors dominated the award named after John Heisman, the pioneering Georgia Tech coach from the early 1900s. In the 1980s, juniors started becoming common winners. Tim Tebow became the first sophomore to win it in 2007, and two more won it in the next two seasons. Adrian Peterson had come

closest as a freshman, finishing second to Southern California quarterback Matt Leinart in 2004. But it took 78 years for a newbie to take home the big bronze statue. Johnny Football really can do it all. Peterson was a true freshman for Oklahoma. As a redshirt freshmen, Manziel attended school and practiced with the team last year, but did not play in any games.

Cowboy charged after player dies in wreck Associated Press

IRVING, Texas — Police charged Dallas Cowboys defensive lineman Josh Brent with intoxication manslaughter Saturday after he flipped his car in a pre-dawn accident that killed teammate Jerry Brown. Irving police spokesman John Argumaniz said the accident happened about 2:20 a.m. Saturday in the Dallas suburb, hours before Brent was to be on a team flight to

Cincinnati for the Cowboys’ game Sunday against the Bengals. Argumaniz said the 25-year-old Brown — a practice-squad linebacker who also was Brent’s teammate for three seasons at the University of Illinois — was found unresponsive at the scene and pronounced dead at a hospital. Brown died a week after Kansas City Chiefs linebacker Jovan Belcher fatally shot

his girlfriend before killing himself in front of his coach and general manager. “We are deeply saddened by the news of this accident and the passing of Jerry Brown,” Cowboys owner Jerry Jones said in a statement. “At this time, our hearts and prayers and deepest sympathies are with the members of Jerry’s family and all of those who knew him and loved him.” Officers conducted a field

sobriety test on Brent and arrested him on suspicion of driving while intoxicated, Argumaniz said. The charge, a second-degree felony punishable by two to 20 years in prison, was upgraded after Brown was pronounced dead. Argumaniz said Brent, who pleaded guilty to a drunken driving charge three years ago at Illinois, was being held Please see WRECK | 9A

Cincinnati hires Tuberville as new football coach Associated Press

CINCINNATI — Tommy Tuberville wasn’t expecting a call from an old acquaintance. A few hours later, he was headed north for a new job. Tuberville left Texas Tech to become Cincinnati’s football coach Saturday, moving

away from a Big 12 school to one that has an uncertain future with conference realignment. He left the Red Raiders after three years to coach at a school where his recent predecessors have lasted no longer. Two hours after Cincin-

nati’s 11th-ranked basketball team won its ninth game of the season, the Bearcats hauled out their Big East trophies and held a pep rally — complete with cheerleaders, band and several hundred fans — for the new coach at midcourt.

“There’s always a next step,” Tuberville said. “I’m going to get the question: Why did you come to Cincinnati? That’s exactly it.” His quick hiring ended a whirlwind week in Cincinnati, Please see COACH | 9A

It’s not too late to vaccinate against flu BY JEFF YORK Special to the Daily Corinthian

Christmas in Farmington

Photo by Lisa Wilbanks

The Town of Farmington recently held its first Christmas parade. Donald King was honored as grand marshal of the parade and rode in the procession with his grandchildren, Tret King and Gracie Mae Bain. See future editions of The Daily Corinthian for more photos from the parade.

Flu season has officially arrived, with cases of seasonal influenza now categorized as widespread in our state. But it’s not too late to vaccinate! The Department of Health urges all who have not yet received a flu vaccine to get one now to help protect vulnerable people around them, their families and themselves from the flu virus. “This is the earliest start to an ordinary flu season since 2003, with seasonal flu now spreading in communities across our state,” said Health Commissioner John Dreyzehner, MD. “People who are still unvaccinated are at increased risk of getting sick and spreading the virus to others. It’s very important for people who are not yet vaccinated to do so now.” The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention said this week that the vaccine is a good match for the flu strains currently circulating in the U.S. CDC officials caution that the most common strain of influenza now circulating tends to cause more severe cases of illness, particularly among the elderly. Seasonal flu activity is now highest in the southeastern and south central U.S., including Tennessee. CDC recommends annual flu vaccination for everyone over the age of six months. “With the earlier start of flu activity, we can expect to see significant influenza activity through January or February, and it is capable of lingering as late as May,” said Kelly Moore, MD. “It’s not too late to

benefit from vaccine. But, it takes one or two weeks after being vaccinated for you to be protected, so if you haven’t yet gotten a vaccine, don’t wait.” Flu vaccine for people of all ages is widely available from primary health care providers, walk-in clinics, pharmacies and county health departments. The flu vaccine is especially important for people at high risk for serious illness or death from influenza such as the elderly, pregnant women and young children, as well as healthcare workers and family and friends of anyone at high risk. Expectant mothers should be vaccinated during pregnancy to protect themselves and pass protection on to their unborn babies. Influenza vaccine is our best defense against the flu, but some people who are vaccinated will become ill anyway. For this reason, it’s also important to practice good health habits to protect yourself from the flu and other winter viruses and to prevent spreading them to others if you do get sick. Good health habits include frequent hand washing with soapy water, keeping hands away from your face, and covering coughs and sneezes with a sleeve or tissue. People who are sick should stay home to recover if at all possible to prevent spreading illness to coworkers and others. If someone at high risk of serious illness gets sick with the flu, it is important to contact their healthcare provider to see if antiviral medication or other treatment is recommended to prevent complications.

Civil War era photo shows Alexandar Simplot and his wife, Virginia.

Sunday, December 9, 2012

Alexander Simplot’s drawing shows the fighting at Battery Robinett during the Battle of Corinth 150 years ago.

Story of a reporter, artist who followed Civil War BY TOM PARSON NPS Ranger

I have a confession to make. I’m not much of an artist. I like to flatter myself that I can string a few sentences together, but when it comes to things like painting and music, I’m a real zero. I can’t carry a tune in a bucket. In fact, I am about as tone deaf as General Grant who once said he could only recognize two tunes, “One was Yankee Doodle, and the other wasn’t.” As for art, forget about it, I’m colorblind. There was a good reason why Mom never put my schoolwork on the fridge door. But I’ve always had a deep appreciation for artwork and, surprise, this includes a fondness for art created during the Civil War. Homer Winslow cranked out a number of fine paintings during the conflict as did Thomas Nast, Conrad Wise Chapman and Edouard Manet. My particular favorites are the artists who travelled with the armies much like the modern imbedded journalists who reported Desert Storm and the Iraq War. These guys travelled with the troops, ate the same food, slept in the same mud. Their drawings were reproduced in the newspapers of the day and papers like Frank Leslie’s Illustrated Newspaper and Harper’s Weekly loaded their pages with images. There were plenty of artist/correspondents who travelled with the

Union army here in the West, men like Alfred Waud, Henri Lovie, and of course, Alexandar Simplot. Never heard of Alex Simplot? If you’ve ever been to the Interpretive Center here in Corinth, you have seen his work. Alexandar Simplot was born in Dubuque, Iowa in1837. His parents were French immigrants and were among the first settlers in the state. One account has it that Alex was the first white child born in the Hawkeye State. His father was a merchant, made quite a bit of money, and was able to ensure Alex got a good education. He attended public schools for a bit and then transferred to the Rock River Seminary in Mount Morris, Illinois. It was here that Alex struck up a friendship with classmate John A. Rawlings, the future Governor of Iowa. After he received his diploma from Rock River, Alex was bundled off to Union College in Schenectady, New York. Alexandar graduated in 1857 with a Law degree, though his heart was really in his art. He gave a commencement address titled “Plea for Artists” which couldn’t have made his folks too happy. They discouraged his artistic leanings. As fate would have it, Alex began life as neither an artist nor a lawyer, but rather as a teacher. One of his first students was a pretty little eleven year old girl by the name of Virginia Knapp. After the

Like most artists, Alex produced a lot more drawings than he had published. In 1956, these drawings and sketches were found in an old cardboard box in his grandson’s garage. Several of these pieces of art depict the activities in and around Corinth. war, and shortly after her 18th birthday, Virginia became his bride. The outbreak of the Civil War provided the opportunity Alex needed to practice his love of drawing. He was in Dubuque on April 22, 1861 to witness the departure of the local militia unit, the “Governor’s Grays,” on a steamboat bound for the east. It was 11 days after the surrender at Fort Sumter and patriotism was high. Thousands turned out for the event. Alex made a sketch of the teeming masses on the wharf and the soldiers lining the rails as the steamer Alhambra cast off into the river. He wrote a moving description as well and sent both off to the editors of Harper’s Weekly. The publishers liked what they saw and asked for more. “A few weeks, thereafter,” recalled Alex, “in May, saw me in Cairo, Illinois, at the confluence of the Ohio and Mississippi Rivers.” Cairo was a vital Union staging ground and Alex was able to send off a number of drawings

of the Northern soldiers preparing for war. Alex’s next stop was St. Louis, where he fell in with a group of newspaper correspondents, many of whom would be his companions in the months to come. They were a rowdy, hard drinking press corps who called themselves the “Bohemian Brigade” and were responsible for reporting the war in the West to the world. Alexandar scored something of coup in the fall of 1861 when he acquired a letter of introduction from General Grant’s former employer in Galena, Illinois. When Alex secured a meeting with the then obscure brigadier general, he was delighted to see his old school chum John A. Rawlings, who was Grant’s chief-of-staff. It was a great meeting and thanks to Rawlings, Alex had access to the inner circle of Grant’s command and could often wrangle interviews when others were left out in the cold. From that point on, wherever Grant was, there was Simplot. He was at the Battle of Bel-

mont in Missouri and sketched Grant riding his horse up onto a steamboat at the close of the fight. He was at Forts Henry and Donelson, the first major Union victories of the war. He produced remarkable drawings of the river landing as Hamburg just south of Pittsburg Landing and the activities that preceded the Siege of Corinth. Alex finally made his way to Corinth in May of 1862. He spent a good deal of his time off to the east with Pope’s Army of the Mississippi and was in a great position to make some amazing sketches of Farmington. Three of them made their way into Harper’s Weekly. Once Corinth was in Union hands, General Sherman was sent west to repair the railroad to Memphis and Simplot went with him. As a consequence, he was in Memphis in June and scored yet another coup -- Alex was the only reporter to observe and record the all naval Battle of Memphis. Simplot was back in town by late September and was here for the epic Battle of Corinth. He made over a half dozen sketches of different aspects of the fight, but it was his drawing of the fighting at Battery Robinett that became one of the iconic images of the battle. The drawing depicts the high-water mark of the Confederate attack as the seemingly victorious 2nd Texas climb the

walls of the fort and fight hand to hand with the defenders. In the distance are the reinforcements of the 11th Missouri infantry moments before they charged forward to drive the Southerners back. Corinth is in the background and you can almost smell the smoke of battle. Alex’s coverage of the war came to an abrupt halt soon after New Year’s in 1863. “Having returned to Memphis where I again fell victim of chronic dysentery, I left for Dubuque where I spent the rest of the war.” He lived a long full life in Iowa and must have been proud when his son Julien Dubuque Simplot, child number seven of nine, worked for a time as reporter for the local paper. Alex passed away in 1914 at the age of 77. Like most artists, Alex produced a lot more drawings than he had published. In 1956, these drawings and sketches were found in an old cardboard box in his grandson’s garage. Several of these pieces of art depict the activities in and around Corinth. The priceless collection of rough drafts and field notebooks has made its way into the collections of the Wisconsin Historical Society. How come I can’t find stuff like that in my garage?

Ward’s latest work a compendium of East Mississippi history BY DAILY TIMES LEADER West Point

Whether it’s the living room rocker that sits below a family portrait which dates back to the U.S. Civil War, a book or a simple mantel piece, every piece that decorates the Rufus Ward home has a story to tell. That is the nature of Ward’s writing as well. In his latest historical piece, “The Columbus Chronicles: Tales from East Mississippi,” every nook and cranny in this portion of the state and in parts of western Alabama has a story. These are not the tales of insignificant figures either. The History Press publication features local characters who rubbed elbows with some of the most important figures in American history, some

even playing large roles in that history. “I try to mix history with a little bit of fun stuff,” Ward said, as he thumbed through his latest book on Wednesday afternoon. “A lot of history in schools these days is boring.” There’s certainly nothing boring about the fact that J.R.R. Tolkien’s editor was a resident of Lowndes County when he was still living. Clyde Kilby was known to hold group studies on C.S. Lewis in Columbus. Only a small number of faithful attendees knew that he was a friend of Lewis’, and he was Tolkien’s editor. Kilby’s journey from some of the world’s most famous writers to his life in small-town Columbus is chronicled in the chapter “Clyde Kilby: His Columbus Hobbit Hole.”

“There was a writer for National Geographic who was documenting the flight across the country. In his account, he wrote of a small town in Mississippi, and he said it was the friendliest town they saw in the entire country.” Rufus Ward Author Ward’s favorite account in the book comes from a small town called Crawford, which is 20 miles south of West Point. “In 1924, the U.S. had a Zeppelin that was flying across the country,” Ward said of the early aircraft modeled after the German Zeppelin. Most people in smalltown America had never

seen anything like the craft, and Crawford was no exception. “There was a writer for National Geographic who was documenting the flight across the country,” Ward said. “In his account, he wrote of a small town in Mississippi, and he said it was the friendliest town they saw in the entire country.”

Ward says the account tells of the citizens coming out to greet the pilots, waving white sheets into the air. “When you read the account from Crawford, the citizens thought that they were seeing an alien spacecraft, and they had brought all of their white sheets outside, and they were waving them as white flags of surrender,” Ward said, chuckling at the differing accounts. Ward has written somewhere in the neighborhood of 200 journal and newspaper articles since the mid-1990s. His writing career began when he uncovered Choctaw Indian house sites on his family’s farm. “Several people told me that I needed to submit the information to archeological journals,” Ward said.

Ward says that his first writings were scrutinized heavily by his editors, a process he says he now appreciates. The seasoned author eventually settled into his patented conversational writing style that exists throughout “The Columbus Chronicles.” A host of stories about Native Americans, World War I, a Prisoner of War camp that housed Germans in Aliceville, Alabama and tales that date back before the Civil War permeate the historical narrative that both entertains and informs. Ward will be doing several book signing events in the Golden Triangle, including a December 22 event at Books-a-Million in Columbus. Ward says that there will be a signing at the Bryan Public Library in the future as well.

Deer hunt gets serious as rutting action heats up December is an exciting time to be in the deer woods, as it’s generally when daytime deer movement increases and one of the few times when mature bucks actually become vulnerable. Bucks that were mostly nocturnal and seemed almost non-existent before are now on the move. In some parts of the region, the chase phase of the white-tail rut has been well underway, while the southern and eastern fringes are just now getting into swing. Other than actually seeing a buck pursuing a doe, there are several indicators to look for in gauging whether the chase is on in a given area. Those include seeing single doe deer that appear jittery, young deer (fawns) left

to fend for themselves, b u c k sightings outnumber doe David sightings, Green and finding larger Outdoors splayed tracks on the heels of smaller tracks. The change of behavior in doe deer is due largely to the harassment by their counterparts. Doe family units begin shying away from social gathering places such as feeding areas and then eventually separate as they get close to coming into their estrous cycle. In the chase phase, buck behavior changes dramatically from what it

was at the start of the season. Food is no longer a priority. Testosterone levels are beginning to peak while, at the same time, most females are not yet ready. Bucks tend to travel greater distances and chase after the gals with reckless abandonment. This is the time to get serious and stay in the woods all day, or for as long as your time allows. Bucks are just as likely to be on the move at midday as they are in the early morning and late evening. Sitting in a stand all day is not easy, though it might be what it takes to get a bead on the buck you’re looking for. The key for having staying power is possessing confidence in the area that’s being hunted. Without it, you

might as well pack it up and go to the house. Loss of concentration leads to fidgety and causes bad things to happen. But staying in the woods all day doesn’t mean you have to stay on stand the whole time. Lots of hunters do well still-hunting, slipping around prime territory ever so slowly doing more watching and listening than walking. Bucks will have their guard down as they move about from place to place looking for a receptive mate. While out and about, take note of fresh tracks that appear to be made by a buck running a doe. Set up in a likely area as soon as possible. There’s a good chance the buck is still close by. Be careful though, the buck’s atten-

tion may be diverted but the doe will act as his eyes and ears. She’s the one most likely to blow your cover. Deer hunting takes a serious turn in December, and I’m looking forward to hunting and seeing how the rest of the season pans out considering how many huge bucks have already been taken. There’s no doubt there’ll be plenty more of big buck hunting successes to be told. A few years ago some people scoffed at my notion that B&C class bucks could start showing up in this region. It’s no laughing matter now. If you haven’t heard, a 15-yearold boy harvested a monster non-typical on Nov. 9 in Benton County which green scored a gross score of over 207 inches

of antler. An official score will be made after the required 60-day drying period. Benton County is not that far from here. Sitting in a stand all day may not be that hard after all. Just thinking there could be a buck of that proportion walking around in your neck of the woods could make the sit a whole lot easier.

Black bears show signs of comeback in northeast Alabama BY LAURA JOHNSON The Anniston Star

ANNISTON, Ala. — Scientists have one more piece of evidence to support a notion that the black bear population is on the rise in northeast Alabama. An image of a bear with a shiny coat of black fur was captured by a motion-activated camera in the Nances Creek area last month, said Robert Carter, a Jacksonville State University biology professor. The image was sent via email to Carter, who studies the black bear population in and around the Talladega National Forest. “The population is pretty low, but they’re around,” Carter said. “It’s

becoming more common.” The number of black bear sightings in the area has been increasing, prompting some to believe the bear’s population is on the rise here, Carter said. In addition to the black bear seen by the camera in Nances Creek, at least three more bear sightings have been reported in recent months. Two sightings occurred at or around Cheaha State Park, and one sighting occurred in Piedmont on private property. An isolated sighting isn’t an indication that the bear population is growing, but multiple reports in one year is a signal to researchers that “something is going on,” Carter said.

The black bear once was common in Alabama, but the animal nearly disappeared from much of the state by 1920. Scientists say there were two main causes for the bear population’s decline: the destruction of its habitat and over-hunting. “The bear is a part of the ecosystem that’s been gone for a long time,” Carter said. A significant increase in the black bear population could be beneficial to several smaller species which thrive in the same habitat as the larger, fur-bearing animal, said Todd Steury, an Auburn University professor who tracks Alabama’s black bear population. “It’s what we call an

umbrella effect,” Steury said. Lesser-known species such as the long-tailed weasel and the spotted skunk, both of which are present in Alabama, thrive in the same habitats that are good for the black bear, Steury said. Evidence to support the idea that the bear population is growing mount with each documented sighting, but there is little scientific proof of the increase in the local wilderness and forest. Sightings reported by the public are not always reliable sources of information for researchers. Sometimes people mistake other animals as bears, Carter said. “A lot of people will say

that they saw a black bear and they didn’t,” Carter said. “It might just be a black lab they saw at dusk.” Carter and other researchers continue to look for more evidence of the bear’s presence in northeast Alabama. A lone tuft of black bear fur in a barbed wire hair snare was the only sign of the bears’ presence during a JSU population study conducted in the Dugger Mountain Wilderness area earlier this year. The snare, surrounded by food for the bear, was designed to collect fur samples. “I think that’s OK, because we know the population is low,” Carter said. A study of the black

bear population at Little River Canyon National Preserve near Fort Payne offered more definitive answers about the black bear population in that area. Researchers found two female black bears with cubs and evidence of 16 to 19 bears in the preserve. The sustainable black bear population at Little River Canyon didn’t exist a decade ago, Steury said. Scientists believe most of the black bears roaming the local forest and wilderness areas are males coming south from Tennessee and Georgia. Within 10 years, Carter said, a sustainable black bear population will exist in or around the Talladega National Forrest.

Winter vacations offer luxury Delta Democrat Times

(BPT) — The holiday season is magical, with colorful lights sparkling in the snow and festivities abounding. But once the holidays are over, don’t let the lingering winter force you inside. Instead, use the winter months as the perfect opportunity to take a winter wonderland vacation. When the snow arrives, the outdoors become a fantastic playground for kids and adults alike. The snow provides everyone with an excuse to get outside. Wintery outdoor activities can range from the more extreme adventures like dogsledding and downhill skiing, to a more moderate pace of snowshoeing, ice skating and cross country skiing – bringing a rosy glow to cheeks and noses. Bring a little fun, excitement and pampering

to your winter months by taking a long weekend, or even a week-long trip to the snow country, and discover how much fun it is to play in the snow during the day. Then cap off each night with a luxurious dinner before falling asleep in comfort, dreaming about the activities of the day. Couples looking for a romantic getaway can also plan the perfect holiday, complete with spa treatments or cozying up to the fire with hot chocolate warming their hands. For your next winter wonderland escape, make certain you pamper yourself well. Book your getaway at The American Club Resort in Kohler, Wis., which is one of the few Forbes Five Star, AAA-Five Diamond rated hotels in the world. Spend your days skiing, snowshoeing, skating, ice

fishing and even clay and trap shooting. Or take an open-air, horse-drawn carriage ride through the winding streets of Kohler Village, breathing in the cool, crisp, fresh air. If your muscles feel a little sore from all the exertions, the Forbes Five-Star Kohler Waters Spa is known for its healing hydrotherapy water services and innovative treatments, including the WaveMotion Body Treatment, which will have you feeling pampered and relaxed in no time at all. And just imagine lounging back in the rooftop whirlpool, the steam of the water enveloping you in a snow globe setting with snow gently falling all around you. Of course, one doesn’t need to spend every day of their winter wonderland vacation outside. The American Club Re-

sort also offers Yoga on the Lake, indoor tennis at the Sports Core and lessons at the Kohler Golf Academy, allowing guests to pursue and perfect their summer seasonal interests. For the culinarily inclined, one can fill their belly at any of the 11 restaurants throughout the resort – including Kohler Original Recipe Chocolates at the Craverie – or enjoy the Demonstration Kitchen Series, interacting with Kohler chefs and learning tips and tricks for cooking at home. Don’t let the long winter months after the holiday season drag you into the cabin fever doldrums. Instead, don your hat and mittens – as well as some sunblock – lace up your ice skates, and glide out into the sparkly winter wonderland for a rejuvenating and relaxing vacation.

Woman ready to say yes to old proposal DEAR ABBY: I’m a 24-year-old woman and have been in a committed relationship with “Max” for six years. He proposed four years ago and I told him I wanted to marry him, except I wasn’t ready at that time. The years have gone by, and we have flourished as a couple. Most people would swear that we’re already married. However, I have been worrying lately that I might have blown my chance for another proposal. Max doesn’t mention marriage anymore except if I initiate conversation with a related topic. Some of our mutual friends are now engaged and Max has made no comment on the future of our relationship. He seems content in our current state. I feel silly for wanting to be proposed to again, but it is important to me. I don’t want to be pushy and force Max into it. Should I talk to him about it or wait it out and see? —t HOPEFUL FUTURE BRIDE IN NEVADA DEAR HOPEFUL: Max is not a mind reader. The

squeaky w h e e l gets the grease, so if you want a second Abigail proposal, Van Buren squeak up and tell Dear Abby him so. Because you put him off before, he may think you are still not ready for further commitment. DEAR ABBY: I can’t believe I’m actually writing to you, but I need an answer to this question. What is the time limit for acknowledging someone’s attendance at a memorial service? My mother passed away nine months ago. Our relationship had not been an easy one. She had been ill, but the end came very quickly. My youngest sister had died two years before. To make a long story short, I went into a total meltdown. Life just stopped for me. Would it be appropriate to “come clean” and tell everyone that I was grossly overwhelmed (an understatement) with my grieving,

or should I just send a short acknowledgment, thanking them for the time they took to attend my mother’s memorial? — WONDERING IN WEST VIRGINIA DEAR WONDERING: Grief is an individual process. No two people grieve exactly alike, and most of us understand that. It is never too late to say thank you, and if you include an explanation with your acknowledgment, it would be appreciated. DEAR ABBY: I am sending out our annual Christmas cards. I do not want to include my husband’s name on them this year. We haven’t spoken to each other in two years. We still occupy the same house — but thank God it’s large so we don’t have to see each other often. We have a son away at college. Please tell me it is OK. — MARRIED AND NOT, ALBANY, N.Y. DEAR MARRIED AND NOT: If you follow your impulse and omit your husband’s name from the cards, it will be like announcing that he is dead or that you have

Today in history Today is Sunday, Dec. 9, the 344rd day of 2012. There are 22 days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History On Dec. 9, 1942, the Aram Khachaturian ballet “Gayane,” featuring the surging “Sabre Dance,” was first performed by Russia’s Kirov Ballet.

On this date In 1608, English poet John Milton was born in London. In 1854, Alfred, Lord Tennyson’s famous poem, “The Charge of the Light Brigade,” was published in England. In 1911, an explosion inside the Cross Mountain coal mine near Briceville, Tenn., killed 84 workers. (Five were rescued.) In 1912, longtime House Speaker Thomas “Tip” O’Neill was born in Cambridge, Mass. In 1940, British troops opened their first major offensive in North Africa during World War II. In 1958, the John Birch Society was formed in Indianapolis. In 1962, the Petrified Forest in Arizona was designated a national park.

In 1971, Nobel Peace laureate Ralph Bunche died in New York. In 1982, special Watergate prosecutor Leon Jaworski died at his Wimberley, Texas, ranch at age 77. In 1984, the five-dayold hijacking of a Kuwaiti jetliner that claimed the lives of two Americans ended as Iranian security men seized control of the plane, which was parked at Tehran airport. In 1987, the first Palestinian intefadeh, or uprising, began as riots broke out in Gaza and spread to the West Bank, triggering a strong Israeli response. In 1992, Britain’s Prince Charles and Princess Diana announced their separation.

Ten years ago President George W. Bush tapped railroad executive John W. Snow to be his new Treasury Secretary, three days after firing Paul O’Neill. Senate Republican leader Trent Lott apologized for remarks he’d made praising the 1948 presidential run of then-segregationist Strom Thurmond, saying, “A poor choice of words conveyed to some the impression that I embraced the discarded

policies of the past.” United Airlines filed for bankruptcy protection after losing $4 billion in the previous two years. (United emerged from bankruptcy protection in 2006.)

Five years ago A young man once affiliated with a missionary school shot nine people at the school near Denver and a megachurch in Colorado Springs; four victims died and the gunman, Matthew Murray, killed himself. Pig farmer Robert “Willie” Pickton, accused of being Canada’s worst serial killer, was convicted of six counts of second-degree murder, which carried a mandatory sentence of life in prison. Republican presidential candidates sought to embrace Hispanics in a Spanishlanguage debate in Coral Gables, Fla. The first summit between Europe and Africa in seven years came to an acrimonious end in Lisbon, Portugal.

One year ago The European Union said 26 of its 27 member countries were open to joining a new treaty tying their finances together to solve the euro crisis.

Director Peter Jackson, cast discuss ‘Hobbit’ BY NICK PERRY Associated Press

WELLINGTON, New Zealand — Many fans are eagerly anticipating a return to the fictional world of Middle-earth with this week’s general release of the first movie in “The Hobbit” trilogy. Director Peter Jackson and the film’s stars speak to The Associated Press about making “The Hobbit: An Unexpected Journey”: ■ Jackson on shooting at 48 frames per second instead of the standard 24: “We’ve seen the arrival of iPhones and iPads and now there’s a generation of kids — the worry that I have is that they seem to think it’s OK to wait for the film to come

out on DVD or be available for download. And I don’t want kids to see ‘The Hobbit’ on their iPads, really. Not for the first time. So as a filmmaker, I feel the responsibility to say, ‘This is the technology we have now, and it’s different ... How can we raise the bar? Why do we have to stick with 24 frames? ...”’ “The world has to move on and change. And I want to get people back into the cinema. I want to play my little tiny role in encouraging that beautiful, magical, mysterious experience of going into a dark room full of strangers, and being transported into a piece of escapism.” ■ Martin Freeman (Bil-

bo Baggins) on shooting some scenes without other actors around: “I must admit I found the green screen and all that easier than I thought I would. ... I found the technical aspect of it quite doable. Some of it’s difficult, but it’s quite enjoyable, actually. It taps into when I used to play ‘war’ as a 6-year-old. And the Germans were all imaginary. Because I was playing a British person. So yeah, I was on the right side. ...” On marrying his performance to that of Ian Holm, who played an older Bilbo Baggins in the “Lord of the Rings” trilogy: “I knew I couldn’t be a slave to it. Because as truly fantastic as Ian Holm is in everything, and cer-

tainly as Bilbo, I can’t just go and do an impression of Ian Holm for a year and a half. Because it’s my turn. But it was very useful for me to watch and listen to stuff he did, vocal ticks or physical ticks, that I can use but not feel hamstrung by.” ■ Hugo Weaving (Elrond) on the differences in tone to the “Rings” trilogy: “This one feels lighter, more buoyant, but it’s got quite profoundly moving sequences in it, too ... I think it’s very different in many ways, and yet it’s absolutely the same filmmaker, and you are inhabiting the same world.” ■ Elijah Wood (Frodo) on returning to Middleearth in a cameo role: “It

was a gift to come back ... what they’d constructed was such a beautiful remembrance of the characters from the original trilogy.” ■ Cate Blanchett (Galadriel) on the toughest part of filming: “Trying to keep my children off the set.” ■ Richard Armitage (Thorin Oakenshield) on being a 6-foot-2 guy playing a dwarf: “It’s amazing how quickly you get used to it. And also, we spent most of the shoot much bigger than a 6-foot-2 guy. I mean, I had lifts in my shoes, I was wider, I was taller, and biggerhaired. And I actually think that was quite an interesting place to be, because I do think dwarfs

have big ideas about themselves ...” ■ Andy Serkis (Gollum) on taking on the additional role of second-unit director: “There were only a couple of times where there were really, really black days where I went away thinking, ‘This is it. I can’t do it.’ But on the whole, Pete (Jackson) was so brilliant at allowing me to set stuff up and then critiquing my work ... but at least I would have my stab at it.” On the film itself: “I think it’s a great story. I think it’s a beautifully crafted film with great heart. A rollicking adventure, and it feels to me like this really massive feast that everyone will enjoy eating.”

New film a chance to reflect on top Bill Murray performances BY CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie Critic

LOS ANGELES — This week, with the opening of the historical romance “Hyde Park on Hudson,” I finally get to do a Five Most list I’ve been thinking about for a while now: my favorite Bill Murray performances. His take on President Franklin Delano Roosevelt may not be some of his best work, but it’s an unexpected bit of casting, and it provides a great opportunity to reflect on the fantastically eclectic career he’s put together. So here are my picks in chronological order. Honorable mention goes to his supporting turn as trash-talking bowling champ Ernie McCracken in the underappreciated

Farrelly brothers comedy “Kingpin” (1996), for the sweet hairpiece, if nothing else. ■ “Caddyshack” (1980): Murray was at the height of his “Saturday Night Live” cult stardom when he gave his enduring portrayal of oddball golf course greenskeeper Carl Spackler in this all-timegreat raunchy ‘80s comedy. The character is a little grungy and a little dangerous and more than a little off, but also strangely sweet and the source of endlessly quotable lines. Murray has said that people shout Carl dialogue to him all the time as he’s playing golf in real life — “It’s in the hole!” — hoping he’ll recite the words back. That’s how much this movie and this char-

acter still matter in our crowded pop-culture universe. ■ “Stripes” (1981): Murray is at his subversively charming best here in an early starring role as John Winger, a loser who decides to join the Army to be all he can be. He’s silly and sarcastic, confident and quick-witted, so naturally he has a little trouble respecting the authority of Warren Oates’ Sgt. Hulka, the platoon’s “big toe.” But he earns a loyal following, becomes an inadvertent leader and even gets the girl in the end. Murray plays beautifully off old friend Harold Ramis as his straight man, and the whole anarchic vibe from Ivan Reitman, directing one of his best films, is an excellent

Horoscopes Sunday, December 9, 2012 BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Creators Syndicate

The void-of-course Libra Moon of the early day has a suggestion: sleep in as long as possible. Your body can probably use the extra chance to repair itself from yesterday’s wear and tear. Besides, you’ll probably be only minimally productive if you let your to-do list run you around all morning. Afternoon brings clarity and sense of purpose. ARIES (March 21-April 19). You accept authority when it’s clearly focused on what’s good for the group. But a self-interested leader is intolerable to you, and you will rebel against such an abuse of power. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You won’t be content to handle the practical aspects of a job while another person gets to add the creative touches. You want to be a part of the icing and the cake, too. Express your wishes. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You will work hard if the situation requires it. Right now, the situation is best enjoyed. By kicking back with a smile and beverage you pave the way for others to relax, too. CANCER (June 22-July 22). There are many ways you show your maturity. For instance, you’ll see through someone’s half-truth, and you won’t call it out. You’ll observe guardedly, knowing where everyone stands. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You see indifference as a fault and you’re right. Courageous people don’t stand on the sidelines, they get involved. You’ll rise above any fear or ego need that held you back and get into the mix.

VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). What some people don’t realize is that being a good judge of character is a skill. You’ve picked up this ability through trial and error as well as by following the example of a wise someone. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Here’s a way to make sure that you’re on the same page as the one you love: sync up your timelines. Feelings of closeness will grow when you eat, sleep, work and play the same time of day as each other. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You are dealing in a system that is corrupt. But that doesn’t mean you can’t do your best. Admit it -- in all fairness, nothing is fair. But everything can be improved with the right attitude. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You don’t suffer from the same case of celebrity worship as those around you, which will make you the perfect one to talk to the glamorous people in a language they can relate to. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). The needs of the collective, such as it is, are so large in your mind that you’re not worried in the least about yourself. You value those who share your common purpose and work along side you toward this aim. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s in your nature to protect the ones you love. Someone who’s been in your care is ready for independent experiences, and yet, you may struggle to let go. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Every person you meet has filters on his or her ears designed to capture necessary, relevant and pleasant information while letting the rest sift through. Knowing this will guide your message.


fit for the comic’s persona during this period. ■ “Rushmore” (1998): The beginning of a shift in Murray’s screen presence toward melancholy, introspective characters. The humor is still there but it comes from a different place: one of loss, regret and self-destruction. Wes Anderson’s sweet and cleverly meticulous comedy is one of my favorite movies of all time, and Murray just broke my heart in it. He’s wealthy but he has nothing. He has a family but he constantly feels alone. In Jason Schwartzman’s precocious high schooler Max Fischer, he finds an unlikely soul mate. And in Olivia Williams’ firstgrade teacher Miss Cross, he finds unexpected ro-

mance. ■ “Lost in Translation” (2003): Murray earned an Oscar nomination for best actor for his portrayal of Bob Harris, an aging American actor who has schlepped to Tokyo to shoot a whiskey commercial that will pay him $2 million. He strikes a beautiful balance between lighthearted sarcasm and self-loathing as he forms an undefinable friendship with Scarlett Johansson, playing the bored, young wife of a celebrity photographer. To this day, I can’t listen to “More Than This” by Roxy Music without thinking of Murray’s delicate karaoke rendition in this lovely Sofia Coppola film. ■ “Broken Flowers” (2005): He’d already

appeared with deadpan hilarity in perhaps the best segment of Jim Jarmusch’s “Coffee and Cigarettes.” Here, Murray stars for Jarmusch as a middle-aged lothario on a half-hearted quest to visit old lovers in hopes of finding the teenage son he never knew he had. We learn about him — and he learns about himself — through his varied and unpredictable reunions with various ex-girlfriends. It’s yet another world-weary performance from Murray, but each incarnation of this persona reveals richness and shadings; his dramatic work in the later years of his career is just as strong in its own way as the wild comedy was in the beginning.
