2012 Christmas Basket Fund “A Community Tradition”

Basket fund tops $19,000 The spirit of giving is alive and well in the Crossroads area as donations continue to arrive daily for the 17th Annual Corinth Rotary Club/Daily Corinthian 2012 Christmas Basket Fund. The civic club and newspaper have set a $20,000 community fundraising goal this year so 1,000 food baskets could be given away to local families Dec. 15 at the Crossroads Arena. The event was a huge success this year with plenty of need. The total now stands at $19,271, meaning just $729 needs to be raised from the community as there will be no corporate match this year. Food was distributed on faith the goal will be reached by Christmas Day. Recent donations include $150 from Gardner’s Supermarket in memory of Jimmy Gardner; $150 from Rogers’ Supermarket in memory of Jimmy Gardner; $50 from John T. and Ruth V. Sellers in memory of Lester and Esther Sellers of Glen and John C. and Grace V. Lambert of Naperville, Ill.; $50 from Hinkle Homemakers Club in memory of Irene Bynum; $100 from Taft and Janie Little; $200 from Jeanie M.

Worker faces theft charges Items recovered include copper wire, tools, computer with software valued at $100,000 BY BOBBY J. SMITH

A Louisiana construction worker is facing felony charges for allegedly stealing from his job site at Magnolia Regional Health Center. Shreveport resident Steven Barton, 23, was arrested Friday by Corinth Police following a lengthy investigation, according Investigator Capt. Ralph Dance. At Barton’s motel room at the Crossroads Inn on U.S. 72, Corinth Police recovered thousands of dollars worth of materials and tools stolen from a work site — and one very highdollar hot computer. Items recovered include roughly $4,000 worth of copper wire (some already stripped to sell, Dance said), another $4,000 worth of tools and a computer reported stolen from Magnolia Hospital valued at $100,000 for the software it contained. Barton is an employee of one of two contractors involved in the ongoing construction at Magnolia Regional Health Center. Items recovered at Barton’s motel room were stolen from both contractors, Dance said.

Churches plan Christmas Eve services BY STEVE BEAVERS

Area churches will be celebrating the birth of the Savior with Christmas Eve services. Three local congregations have planned special services for Monday, Dec. 24. First Presbyterian Church, First Baptist Church and First United Methodist Church all

have services slated for the evening. First Presbyterian will have its Christmas Eve Candlelight Communion Service at 5:30 p.m. “The service is something we have done for many years,” said church pastor Dr. Don Elliott. “The unique part of the service is that it is led by our college

students.” Dr. Elliott said the service will include scripture reading, prayer, music and the lighting of candles. “It is a special thing for us and has an Easter-like attendance,” said Elliott. First Baptist will hold its Candlelight and Communion Service also at 5:30 p.m.

“It is a beautiful service and one of my favorite,” said church member Jackie Huskey. The reading of Luke 2 along with music by church soloists and harp soloist Cindy Mathis are part of the program. First United Methodist has a Candlelight Communion WorPlease see SERVICES | 3A

Man offers wedding proposal during Christmas parade BY MARK BOEHLER

“Jingle Bells” is always a familiar song each year during the Corinth — Alcorn County Christmas Parade as it ushers in the holiday season in the Crossroads area on the first Saturday in December. This year a more unusual bell was heard at the corner of Fillmore and Cruise streets during the holiday parade. It was the sound of wedding bells.

To the surprise of hundreds who lined the streets to watch the parade, a man on a float dropped on one knee, presented a diamond ring and surprised his girlfriend with a wedding proposal. There were tears after the initial surprise, the future bride said “yes” and the couple embraced for the ceremonial kiss. Meet Ashley Tharp Davis and J.C. Miles. This is their love story.

Some history Ashley, daughter of James and Markettia Tharp, is a 27-year-old 2004 graduate of Corinth High School. She went on to earn an Associates Degree in Paralegal Technology from Northeast Mississippi Community College. She is currently a call center representative for Avectus Healthcare Solutions in Corinth. Please see PROPOSAL | 12A

J.C. Miles asks an emotional Ashley Tharp Davis to marry him during the Corinth-Alcorn County Christmas Parade while onboard a float at the corner of Cruise and Fillmore streets in downtown Corinth. The crowd reacts. And the future bride said yes.

On this day in history 150 years ago President Davis issues a proclamation denouncing the activities of Gen. “Beast” Butler in New Orleans. Claiming Butler is a felon, he decrees that if he is captured, the Union general is not to be given a trial but to be hung at the first opportunity. Lucky for Butler, he is never captured.

Please support CT-A, your local theatre To say last week’s Corinth TheatreArts production of the classic Christmas story “Miracle on 34th Street” was a resounding success would be an understatement. Great actors, leadership, stage set, promotion and directing resulted in many souls enjoying the fellowship and entertainment of a local active theatre. Let’s let the numbers speak for themselves — over 1,400 in paid attendance! This includes four nearly sellout student shows with kids from Thrasher, Hills Chapel, Middleton, North Corinth Christian Academy, Walnut, Adamsville, Burnsville, Pickwick Southside, Rienzi, Tishomingo and Baldwyn in attendance. There was a very successful sponsor night thanks to Cooley and Labas Financial Advisors and Caterpillar, while the Friday-Saturday-Sunday shows were all elbow-room-only sellout performances. Under the direction of Artistic Director Cristina Skinner, the most recent CT-A successful production could only have happened with a lot of long hours and hard work by a bunch of community volunteers. There are too many names for specifics. We speak of the efforts on the stage, behind the stage and the leadership of the CT-A Board of Directors. “Miracle on 34th Street” was the fourth production of the 2012-13 season. Youth productions “The House at Pooh Corner” and “The Wizard of Oz” follows in February and March, respectively. “Whose Life Is It Anyway” — a second stage production for adults — follows in April, then “Nunsense — The Mega Musical” for all audiences wraps up the season May 31-June 2. CT-A needs your support. Try to attend the theatre productions. For the more adventurous, there will be future casting calls. For those who don’t like the bright lights, there is much work to do behind the scenes when it comes to a quality, local, live active theatre. There is always the need for one more volunteer at the Crossroads Playhouse. Thanks CT-A, for making us think, laugh and cry. Long live the local theatre.

Inouye’s Mississippi legacy worth remembering STARKVILLE — Back in 2001, I was afforded the opportunity to meet and interview U.S. Sen. Daniel Inouye, the Democrat from Hawaii. Over the course of my career in Mississippi journalism, he remains one of the most fascinating individuals that it was my privilege to get to know. Inouye died Monday at the age of 88. At the time of his death, Inouye was chairman of the U.S. Senate Appropriations Committee and the Senate’s president pro tempore — third in the line of succession for the presidency — and the Senate’s longest-serving member. He was also a winner of the Congressional Medal of Honor for combat service in the U.S. Army in World War II. Inouye’s Mississippi legacy is part of the story of his military honors. I met Inouye at a 2001 reception prior to the dedication of the new Armed Forces Museum on the grounds of Camp Shelby, Mississippi’s storied old military training camp south of Hattiesburg. At that meeting, I was reminded that heroes come in all shapes, sizes and colors from every racial

and ethnic background and from the least likely of people who find themselves in dire Sid Salter circumstancColumnist es. Born in Honolulu in 1924, Inouye was at 17 a high school student when the Japanese bombed Pearl Harbor on Dec. 7, 1941. Trained in first aid, he spent the week after the raid attending casualties. Like many Japanese Americans, he petitioned the government to be allowed to prove his loyalty through military service after Pearl Harbor. But anti-Japanese sentiments prevailed until 1943, when he was allowed to enlist as part of the storied 442nd Regimental Combat Team which would become the most decorated U.S. Army regiment in World War II. Inouye told the crowd at the museum dedication in 2001: “They said we were going to Mississippi. I said: ‘Mississippi? They lynch people in Mississippi!’ “But he said his train pulled into

Hattiesburg and was met by townswomen offering sandwiches, coffee and hot soup. From a Hawaiian paradise with no pests, Inouye and his 442nd Regiment “Go For Broke!” comrades were introduced at Camp Shelby to “ticks, chiggers and snakes” in sweltering humidity. The training was tough made tougher still by the resentment of some training officers with a decided anti-Japanese bias. Inouye and his compatriots had to prove their mettle by training harder, longer and stronger than their white counterparts and they did. On a night’s leave to Hattiesburg, Inouye said Saturday to a Mississippi crowd of over 1,200: “The first place I ever danced with a white woman was in Hattiesburg, Mississippi. I do not know where that lady is today, but I wish to say to her ‘thank you.’” The crowd roared in laughter. Inouye turned that laughter to tears when he recounted: “I learned in Mississippi that America is a good country. I learned that being an American is not a matter of color, but a

matter of mind and heart.” Inouye would leave Camp Shelby for duty in Italy and France. On April 21, 1945, Inouye led an assault on a fortified hillside at Colle Muscatello, Italy. Three German machine gun nests opened up on his unit. He took out the three nests in the face of heavy enemy fire but not before that enemy fire cost him his right arm. He won the Congressional Medal of Honor. Fearing racism in Mississippi 69 years ago, Inouye found hope and hospitality. Inouye’s loyal friend during his Senate years was Mississippi’s U.S. Sen. Thad Cochran, R-Miss. At the time of Inouye’s death, Cochran served as the ranking Republican on the Senate Appropriations Committee – a post Inouye had held when Cochran was chairmen of Appropriations when the Republican held the Senate. Inouye was a patriot, a hero and one of the bravest Americans I ever met. What a marvelous life he lived. (Daily Corinthian and syndicated columnist Sid Salter can be contacted at 601-507-8004 or

Rush to act on mental illness Newtown is the latest locale in America to become synonymous with senseless slaughter. The shock and the horror are so intense, it almost guarantees that Congress will act. There will inevitably be an enormous brouhaha around guns and ammunition, leading to nothing likely to prevent the next massacre. Democrats are talking about a renewed assault-weapon ban and a prohibition on high-capacity magazines. But Adam Lanza could have killed just as indiscriminately with any semiautomatic gun, and if he didn’t have a high-capacity magazine, he could simply have reloaded with smaller magazines, something the Virginia Tech and Columbine killers managed to do. If we are going to have a rush to action, it shouldn’t be on guns. It should be on mental illness. It doesn’t make for high political drama or emotional cable chatter, but getting treatment for more of the most seriously mentally ill might actually prevent future shootings. Even if it doesn’t, it would improve the lives of sick and vulnerable people. Adam Lanza’s mother,

Nancy, lived alone with him and, by all accounts, was utterly devoted to her youngest Rich child. Then, Lowery one morning he shot her National four times Review in the head. If Lanza was mentally ill, this would accord with the pattern. Parents are the most likely to be victims of the violence of their mentally ill children. We may never know what the dynamic was in the Lanza home. For too many parents of the mentally ill, though, it goes something like this: Their child becomes withdrawn, delusional and erratic. If they call the mental-health system, they are told to bring the child in for an appointment and the sick child won’t go. If the parents call the cops, the cops show up and say the child doesn’t appear to represent a threat to himself or others and they leave. If they take him to the hospital, he is quickly released back to the parents even if he is admitted. The choice might become living

with a deteriorating child increasingly out of his mind or forcing him out of the home and into the streets. Yes, this is 21st-century America. Where we have better means to treat mental illness than ever before, but choose to let the insane people decide to get it or not. Where we supposedly de-institutionalized the mentally ill by closing down psychiatric hospitals, and then reinstitutionalized them behind bars. The number of psychiatric beds on a per capita basis is back at 1850 levels, and there are three times as many seriously mentally ill people in jail or prison than in hospitals, according to the Treatment Advocacy Center. Where we let sick people sleep on the streets. About a third of homeless men and two-thirds of homeless women are seriously mentally ill. Imagine the national outrage if people with Alzheimer’s were permitted to wander around the streets uncared for. But, by some perverse logic, it’s considered OK for schizophrenics. The federal government can act on this travesty only at the margins. It is largely up to the states. They can

make a real difference by stopping the further closure of public hospital psychiatric beds and making it easier to compel treatment. Civil-commitment laws that require imminent danger to self or others are too strict. As DJ Jaffe of Mental Illness Policy Org puts it, that standard doesn’t prevent violence, it requires violence in order to get care to someone too irrational to realize that he needs it. When they are treated, the seriously mentally ill aren’t more violent than the general population. If untreated, though, they are. The evidence is in our ongoing roll call of horrors perpetrated by the deranged. We don’t know yet if Adam Lanza was mentally ill, or if a better system would have helped him. We do know that somewhere out there a young man is about to get very sick. He could become the next Jared Loughner or James Holmes — unless someone gets him treatment.

Vigil marks 3 deaths among homeless HATTIESBURG — The City of Hattiesburg held a nighttime vigil to honor the memory of three homeless people who died in the past year. The Hattiesburg American reports that Friday night’s ceremony was held at the city’s Civic Center Plaza. It’s an annual event aimed at promoting greater awareness of the plight of the homeless, and contributing factors such as mental illness or domestic abuse. Sandy Kinnan, a volunteer with Sacred Heart Catholic Church’s Social

Justice Ministry, said many people in Hattiesburg are unaware that there is a homeless shelter in Hattiesburg that houses children who have left home because of violence or abuse.

Police seek source of counterfeit money NATCHEZ — Police in Natchez are searching for the source of counterfeit money that turned up at several area businesses over the past week. Detective Jerry Ford tells The Natchez Democrat that counterfeiters have been taking small bills, bleaching them and reprinting $100 bills on them.

Ford said a few people have been questioned about the counterfeit money but no arrests have been reported.

Wesson readies to annex eyesore WESSON — Wesson authorities are preparing to annex property that city leaders call an eyesore and a potential health hazard. Mayor Alton Shaw said he’s received numerous complaints about the site, which is privately owned and used as a residence. He did not identify the property owner. Aldermen voted at their Dec. 4 board meeting to begin annexation proceedings. The Daily

Leader reports property is on the city’s border. Shaw said a consulting firm used by the city is preparing the materials needed to move forward. However, due to the holidays, that probably won’t be prepared until early January.

MDA ex-worker faces federal charges JACKSON — A former state employee and the head of a nonprofit housing agency face charges that they took bribes for steering work to a Mound Bayou contractor. Former Mississippi Development Authority worker Connie Lewis, 52, of Jackson faces nine counts of bribery, claiming

she accepted more than $250,000 in cash from Jimmy Stokes to use her MDA job to steer federal grants to Stokes Construction Co. Linda Balducci, 59, of Shelby faces three counts of conspiring with Stokes to embezzle money through inflated invoices on the complex in the Humphreys County town of Isola. Both have been indicted by a federal grand jury in the Northern District of Mississippi and are currently set for trial in February. Lewis faces up to 85 years in prison and $2.25 million in fines, prosecutors said in a news release. Balducci faces up to 25 years in prison and $750,000 in fines.

Balducci’s attorney could not immediately be reached for comment Friday. It wasn’t clear if Lewis has an attorney. Balducci was indicted under seal in August 2011 and arrested in June after an earlier version of the indictment was made public. She’s free on $10,000 bond. Lewis was arrested Wednesday and released on $5,000 bond. The indictment says Lewis approved invoices for federally-subsidized apartment complexes that Stokes was building in Isola, Batesville, Houston, Hollandale and Itta Bena from 2006 through 2008, when she knew Stokes was inflating the invoices to steal money.

Town in mourning inundated with gifts BY PAT EATON-ROBB Associated Press

NEWTOWN, Conn. — Newtown’s children were showered with gifts Saturday — tens of thousands of teddy bears, Barbie dolls, soccer balls and board games — but only a portion of the tokens of support from around the world for the city in mourning. Just a little over a week ago, 20 children and six school employees were gunned down at Sandy Hook Elementary School. Twenty-year-old Adam Lanza killed his mother, attacked the school, then killed himself. Police don’t know what set off the massacre. Days before Christmas, funerals were still being held Saturday, the last of those whose schedules were made public, the Connecticut Funeral Directors Association said. A service was held in Utah for 6-year-old Emilie Parker. Others were scheduled in Connecticut for Josephine Gay, 7, and Ana Marquez-Greene, 6. All of Newtown’s children were invited to Edmond Town Hall, where they could choose a toy. Bobbi Veach, who was fielding donations at the building, reflected on the outpouring of gifts from toy stores, organizations and individuals around the world. “It’s their way if grieving,” Veach said. “They say, ‘I feel so bad, I just want to do something to reach out.’ That’s why we accommodate everybody we can.” The United Way of Western Connecticut said the official fund for donations had $2.6 million in it Saturday morning. Others sent envelopes stuffed with cash to pay for coffee at the general store, and a

A message of support hangs over a table full of donated toys Friday at the town hall in Newtown, Conn. shipment of cupcakes arrived from a gourmet bakery in Beverly Hills, Calif. The Postal Service reported a six-fold increase in mail in town and set up a unique post office box to handle it. The parcels come decorated with rainbows and hearts drawn by school children. Some letters arrived in packs of 26 identical envelopes — one for each family of the children and staff killed or addressed to the “First Responders” or just “The People of Newtown.” One card arrived from Georgia addressed to “The families of 6 amazing women and 20 beloved angels.” Many contained checks. “This is just the proof of the love that’s in this country,” said Postmaster Cathy Zieff.

Peter Leone said he was busy making deli sandwiches and working the register at his Newtown General Store when he got a phone call from Alaska. It was a woman who wanted to give him her credit card number. “She said, ‘I’m paying for the next $500 of food that goes out your door,”’ Leone said. “About a half hour later another gentleman called, I think from the West Coast, and he did the same thing for $2,000.” At the town hall building, the basement resembled a toy store, with piles of stuffed penguins, dolls, games, and other fun gifts. All the toys were inspected and examined by bomb-sniffing dogs before being sorted and put on card tables. The chil-

dren could choose whatever they wanted. “But we’re not checking IDs at the door,” said Tom Mahoney, the building administrator, who’s in charge of handling gifts. “If there is a child from another town who comes in need of a toy, we’re not going to turn them away.” Many people have placed flowers, candles and stuffed animals at makeshift memorials that have popped up all over town. Others are stopping by the Edmond Town Hall to drop off food, or toys, or cash. About 60,000 teddy bears were donated, said Ann Benoure, a social services caseworker who was working at the town hall. “There’s so much stuff coming in,” Mahoney said. “To be honest, it’s a bit overwhelming; you

just want to close the doors and turn the phone off.” Mahoney said the town of some 27,000 with a median household income of more than $111,000 plans to donate whatever is left over to shelters or other charities. Sean Gillespie of Colchester, who attended Sandy Hook Elementary, and Lauren Minor, who works at U.S. Foodservice in Norwich, came from Calvary Chapel in Uncasville with a car filled with food donated by U.S. Foodservice. But they were sent elsewhere because the refrigerators in Newtown were overflowing with donations. “We’ll find someplace,” Gillespie said. “It won’t go to waste.” In addition to the

town’s official fund, other private funds have been set up. Former Sandy Hook student Ryan Kraft, who once babysat Lanza, set up a fund with other alumni that has collected almost $150,000. It is earmarked for the Sandy Hook PTA. Rabbi Shaul Praver of Congregation Adath Israel is raising money for a memorial to the victims. He said one man wrote a check for $52,000 for that project. Several colleges, including the University of Connecticut, have set up scholarship funds to pay for the educations of students at Sandy Hook and the relatives of the victims. Town officials have not decided yet what to do with all the money. A board of Newtown community leaders is being established to determine how it is most needed and will be best utilized, said Isabel Almeida with the local United Way, which has waived all its administrative fees related to the fund. She said some have wondered about building a new school for Sandy Hook students if the town decides to tear the school down, but that decision has not been made. And while the town is grateful for all the support, Almeida said, it has no more room for those gifts. Instead, she encouraged people to donate to others in memory of the Sandy Hook victims. “Send those teddy bears to a school in your community or an organization that serves low income children, who are in need this holiday season, and do it in memory of our children,” she said.

Urban advocates say new gun control talk long overdue BY JESSE WASHINGTON AP National Writer

For years, voices have cried in the urban wilderness: We need to talk about gun control. Yet the guns blazed on. It took a small-town slaughter for gun control to become a political priority. Now, decades’ worth of big-city arguments against easy access to guns are finally being heard, because an unstable young man invaded an elementary school in Newtown, Conn., with a military-style assault rifle and 30-bullet magazines. Twenty young children and six adults were slain. President Barack Obama called the tragedy a “wake-up call.” Vice President Joe Biden met Thursday with Obama’s cabinet and law-enforcement officers from around the country to launch a

task force on reducing gun violence. Lawmakers who have long resisted gun control are saying something must be done. Such action is energizing those who have sought to reduce urban gun violence. Donations are up in some places; other leaders have been working overtime due to this unprecedented moment. The moment also is causing some to reflect on the sudden change of heart. Why now? Why weren’t we moved to act by the killing of so many other children, albeit one by one, in urban areas? Certainly, Newtown is a special case, 6- and 7-year-olds riddled with bullets inside the sanctuary of a classroom. Even in a nation rife with violence, where there have been three other mass slayings since July and

millions enjoy virtual killing via video games, the nature of this tragedy is shocking. But still: “There’s a lot of talk now about we have to protect our children. We have to protect all of our children, not just the ones living in the suburbs,” said Tammerlin Drummond, a columnist for the Oakland Tribune. In her column Monday, Drummond wrote about 7-year-old Heaven Sutton of Chicago, who was standing next to her mother selling candy when she was killed in the crossfire of a gang shootout. Also in Chicago, which has been plagued by a recent spike in gun violence: 6-year-old Aaliyah Shell was caught in a drive-by while standing on her front porch; and 13-year-old Tyquan Tyler was killed when a some-

one in a car shot into a group of youths outside a party. Wrote Drummond: “It has taken the murders of 20 babies and six adults in an upper-middle class neighborhood in Connecticut to achieve what thousands of gun fatalities in urban communities all over this country could not.” So again: What took so long? The answers are complicated by many factors: resignation to urban violence, even among some of those who live there; the assumption that cities are dangerous and small towns safe; the idea that some urban victims place themselves in harm’s way. In March, the Children’s Defense Fund issued a report titled “Protect Children, Not Guns 2012.” It analyzed the latest federal data and counted 299 children un-

der age 10 killed by guns in 2008 and 2009. That figure included 173 preschool-age children. Black children and teens accounted for 45 percent of all child and teen gun deaths, even though they were only 15 percent of the child/teen population. “Every child’s life is sacred and it is long past time that we protect it,” said CDF president Marian Wright Edelman in the report. It got almost no press coverage — until nine months later, when Newtown happened. Tim Stevens, founder and chairman of the Black Political Empowerment Project in Pittsburgh, has been focusing on urban gun violence since 2007, when he said Pennsylvania was declared the worst state for black-onblack violence. In the days since the

Newtown killings, Stevens has felt sadness, emotional turmoil — and a bit of vindication at the new movement on gun control. Stevens said America still would have been spurred to action if the Newtown victims had been black. He recalled the way that the Birmingham, Ala., church bombing during the civil rights movement, which killed four black girls, galvanized the nation in 1963. “But in all honestly, because (Newtown) was a suburban, very small quiet town where normally people feel nothing happens, that does make some degree of difference,” Stevens said. “It made a statement to the nation that if such profound tragedy can happen there, it obviously can happen anywhere.” Drummond, the columnist, said in an interview that even many people who live in violent urban areas, which are predominantly black and Hispanic, have almost come to accept gun deaths. Big cities have long dealt with the perception that gun violence is an urban problem. John Feinblatt, who works for New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg and is chief policy advisor for the Mayors Against Illegal Guns organization, said that Newtown has spurred action because of the age and number of victims, and that they were killed in school. “There is no doubt that something has changed,” Feinblatt said. “America’s heart has been broken.” At the Violence Policy Center, a national organization that combats gun violence, an unprecedented surge of donations has arrived since the Newtown killings, as well as many emails from people asking how they could help, said executive director Josh Sugarmann.

NEW YORK — Another Starbucks may soon pop up around the corner, with the world’s biggest coffee company planning to add at least 1,500 cafes in the U.S. over the next five years. The plan, which would boost the number of Starbucks cafes in the country by about 13 percent, was announced at the company’s investor day recently in New York. Taking into account Canada and South America, the company plans to add a total of 3,000 new cafes in its broader Americas region. Worldwide, the company says it will have more than 20,000 cafes by 2014, up from its current count of about 18,000. Much of that growth will come from China, which the company says will surpass Canada as its second-biggest market. Although Starbucks has been intensifying its growth overseas and building its packagedgoods business back at home, the majority of its revenue still comes from its more than 11,100 cafes in the United States. In an interview ahead of its investor day, CEO Howard Schultz said the U.S. expansion plans are based “on the current strength of our business� Just a few months ago, the company had predicted it would open just 1,000 new cafes in the country over the next five years. The upbeat expansion plans mark a turnaround from Starbucks’ struggles during the recession. After hitting a rough patch, the company brought back Schultz as CEO in 2008 and embarked on massive restructuring effort that included closing 10 percent of its U.S. stores. Cliff Burrows, who heads Starbucks’ domestic business, said the problem wasn’t that Starbucks was oversaturated, but that the company hadn’t been careful about its store openings. In the years leading up to the downturn, the company was opening well over 1,000 stores a year. That led to cafes in locations where signs or traffic might not be optimal, he said. Burrows said Starbucks has gotten more sophisticated, and noted that the cafes opened in recent years are among the company’s best performers. Sales at new cafes are averaging about $1 million a year, for example, above the company’s target of $900,000. It costs about $450,000 to build a new cafe. Since Starbucks already has a broad footprint, the company’s expansion is intended to “deepen� its presence with additional stores in markets across the country, said Troy Alstead, Starbucks’ chief financial officer. That means establishing stores — including drivethrus and smaller cafes — in more convenient locations for customers. And even as it expands, Starbucks said it expects to maintain growth at cafes open at least a year. The figure, a key metric of health, has ranged between 7 percent and 8 percent globally in the past three years. The continued U.S. sales growth will be fueled by the new products, such as Evolution premium juices and Via single-serve coffee packets. Looking forward, Starbucks is also looking to improve its food menu and is testing a new menu

of baked goods from La Boulange, a small San Francisco-based chain it acquired earlier this year. The new croissants, loaf cakes and other items will spread to about 2,500 cafes next year and go national sometime in 2014, Burrows said. The company says only about a third of customers currently buy food with their drinks. In a test aimed at building sales in the evening hours, the company also started serving beer and wine at about a dozen locations earlier this year, with food such as chicken skewers and dates wrapped in bacon. And most recently, Starbucks announced plans to acquire Teavana, a chain that has 300 locations in shopping malls. When the announcement was made last month, Schultz said the company would “do for tea what it did for coffee.� That includes plans to expand Teavana’s presence beyond the shopping mall with standalone shops that have “tea bars� that serve specialty drinks. The company declined to say when Starbucks cafes would begin serving Teavana drinks — and it hasn’t decided on whether it will continue to sell Tazo in cafes. After a string of acquisitions in recent years to build on its core business, Schultz indicated Wednesday that the company would hold off on any additional purchases in the near future, noting that the company has “enough to handle.�

Warriors drop 2nd straight BY H. LEE SMITH II

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — The Corinth Warriors ended their pre-Christmas schedule on a two-game slide. White Station, ranked third in Tennessee by MaxPreps, handed Corinth its second loss in as many nights with a 67-56 decision Saturday at the Lynx Classic at Lausanne Collegiate. The Spartans (10-1) placed four players in double figures with the quartet accounting for 66 of their 67 points. Chris Chiozza led all scorers with 21 points, including a 7-of-10 showing from the line. White Station led 18-12 after one. Eleven combined points from Desmin Harris and Bubba Walker, nine coming from beyond the arc paced a 17-point second quarter that pulled Corinth (9-3) to within 33-29 at the break. “We just never really threatened them,” said Corinth Head Coach Keith Greene. A 13-7 advantage in the third upped the Spartans’ lead to 46-36. Corinth was still within 10 with about five minutes remaining, but White Station maintained the lead by hitting 4-of-6 from the charity line down the stretch. Raheem Sorrell paced Corinth with 13 points, nine in the second half. Corinth got 52 points from the field to go along with a 4-of-6 night at the line. White Station tallied 54 points from the field and was 13-of23 at the line. The Warriors will play in the Dyersburg Christmas Tournament on Dec. 27-29.

Ware’s double-double leads to win Associated Press

JACKSON — Mississippi State coach Rick Ray is adamant that his offense will be heavily dependent on a post presence. Because of injuries, 6-foot9 true freshman Gavin Ware is the only candidate remaining on the roster. And on Saturday afternoon, the wide-bodied 19-year-old responded with the biggest game of his short career, scoring 22 points and grabbing 13 rebounds as Mississippi State beat Central Arkansas 79-72 at Mississippi Coliseum.

Ware was unstoppable in the paint, making 8 of 9 shots from the field, 6 of 8 free throws and grabbing four offensive rebounds. Ray said the Bulldogs retooled their offense over the past week to take advantage of Ware’s considerable talent — but the first-year coach said he had no idea how he would respond. “He did a great job finishing,” Ray said. “We can design whatever we want to, but it’s always the players who make the plays. He went out and did a good job of making plays.”

Trivante Bloodman scored 12, Colin Borchert 11 and walk-on Tyson Cunningham added 10 points, including two 3-pointers in the second half that helped the Bulldogs (4-6) pull away. Six Mississippi State players scored at least nine points. “We were playing together, everybody was getting touches, guys were open and everybody was knocking down their shots,” Cunningham said. Mississippi State won for just the third time in eight games. The Bulldogs dominated on the glass, out-

rebounding the Bears 43-29. They also shot 48.1 percent (25 of 52) from the field. Central Arkansas (4-5) has lost two in a row. The Bears were led by Robert Crawford’s 26 points. Jordan Harks and Jarvis Garner added 11. Crawford tried to keep the Bears in the game, making 8 of 18 shots from the field, including 7 of 14 from 3-point range. But Central Arkansas shot just 3 of 21 from 3-point range outside of Crawford, and shot just 11 free throws Please see MSU | 9A

Ole Miss falls to ISU in Diamond Head Classic Associated Press

HONOLULU — Manny Arop scored a game-high 27 points to lead Indiana State to an 87-85 overtime win over Mississippi Saturday in a quarterfinal game of the Diamond Head Classic. Jake Odum had 16 points, eight rebounds and four assists for the Sycamores (6-3). Justin Gant and R.J. Mahurin scored 12 points apiece and Dawon Cummings had 10 points for Indiana State, which will meet the winner of San Francisco and No. 18 San Diego State in Sunday’s semi-

finals. Ole Miss’ Derrick Millinghaus hit a 3-pointer with 1:03 left in regulation to tie it at 75. Jarvis Summers made two free throws 15 seconds into overtime to give Ole Miss its first lead since it led 2725 with about 8 minutes left in the first half. But Indiana State went on a 10-2 run to reclaim the lead at 85-79 and withstood a late charge by Ole Miss. After a free throw by Summers, Marshall Hernandez drained a long 3-pointer from about 28 feet to cut the Syca-

mores’ lead to 85-83 with 16.8 seconds remaining. Odum made two free throws with 11.1 seconds to play to make it a four-point lead for Indiana State. Hernandez missed a long 3 on the Rebels’ next possession, but Reginald Buckner grabbed the loose ball and scored to close it to 87-85. Ole Miss had a chance to tie it or win after the Sycamores turned it over in the closing seconds, but Summers’ desperation heave from near midcourt was no good. Henderson led the Rebels

with 27 points. Buckner finished with 17 points with 10 rebounds and Murphy Holloway added 16 points and 13 rebounds. Ole Miss built a 24-14 lead near the midway point of the first half off an 18-footer by Nick Williams, but Indiana State used a 23-3 run to pull ahead, 37-27, with 2:46 remaining in the first half. The Rebels went scoreless for a stretch of 6:21 in the first half. Indiana State, which made 5 of 9 on 3-pointers in the first Please see OLE MISS | 9A

Peterson pursues rushing record against Texans Associated Press

HOUSTON — Adrian Peterson chose No. 29 for his high school jersey because he idolized Eric Dickerson growing up in Palestine, Texas. Peterson switched to No. 28 in college when 29 wasn’t available. But he never stopped emulating Dickerson, and always hoped he could one day break his NFL single-season rushing record. With two regular-season

games left, Peterson, who is just under a year removed from reconstructive knee surgery, needs 294 yards surpass the 2,105 yards Dickerson gained in 1984. “I was always compared to Eric Dickerson being from Texas and his upright style of running or whatnot. It would mean a lot,” Peterson said of breaking the record. “He set a bar, something for running backs to chase and envision

on breaking his record. It has inspired me to get there and break it. I appreciate him.” The path won’t be easy, with Peterson and the Vikings (8-6) traveling to face the AFC South champion Houston Texans on Sunday. The Texans have the league’s fifth best run defense and are one win away from securing both a first-round bye and home-field advantage throughout the AFC playoffs.

“That’s one of our team goals we set at the beginning of the season,” Houston’s Andre Johnson said. “We’re going to go out and try to get that accomplished on Sunday. It’s better to have it done Sunday than try to do it the following week.” The Vikings still have a shot at a wild-card berth in the NFC, but would likely Please see TEXANS | 9A

Louisiana-Lafayette tops ECU in New Orleans Bowl Associated Press

NEW ORLEANS — Whether Terrance Broadway was throwing, running, or throwing on the run, he gave East Carolina fits and justified Louisiana-Lafayette coach Mark Hudspeth’s decision to let his sophomore quarterback finish the season as his starter. Broadway passed for 316 yards and ran for 108, helping Louisiana-Lafayette repeat as winners of the New Orleans Bowl with a 43-34 victory against East Carolina on Sat-

urday. The performance capped a 2012 campaign which opened with Broadway backing up senior Blaine Gautier, who broke a bone in his throwing hand in late September. “Terrance comes in and just has a phenomenal season,” Hudspeth said, describing the difficult decision not to give Gautier, the New Orleans Bowl MVP a year ago, his job back when he was healthy again late in the season. “We really had hit our stride and

the best thing about Blaine is he understood.” Broadway had to sit out last season after transferring from Houston, and saw this year’s New Orleans Bowl as his first real chance to add some kind of championship to his name after coming up short as a high school standout in Baton Rouge, La. “My main goal was to get our team a big win in this bowl game and just to get that monkey off my back that I didn’t have a ring from high school

and last year,” Broadway said. “I was very focused on that.” Alonzo Harris rushed for 120 yards, including touchdowns of 6 and 68 yards for the Ragin’ Cajuns (9-4), who briefly squandered a threetouchdown lead before moving back in front for good on Broadway’s 14-yard scoring pass to Javone Lawson late in the third quarter. “Nothing fazes our team,” said Broadway, who also ran Please see BOWL | 9A

half, finished 9 of 20 from behind the arc for the game. The Sycamores made 18 of 24 free throws, while the Rebels got to the line just 13 times and made seven. Gant, a sophomore center, had 11 rebounds and played 41 minutes — the most by any player. Arop, a junior forward, was 9 of 15 from the field, including 4 of 5 on 3-pointers and 5 of 6 from the free-throw line. He had 16 points by halftime. Hernandez, who entered the game averaging 17.8 points, made 10 of his 23 field goals, including 7 of 16 3-pointers. He scored 16 of his points after halftime for the Rebels, who rallied from as many as 11 downs. The Rebels scored 24 points off 13 Indiana State turnovers and got 29 second-chance points to the Sycamores’ 15. There were 11 ties and six lead changes in the game. Indiana State led 44-33 at halftime. The Rebels (8-2) had their twogame winning streak snapped and will play in a consolation semifinal Sunday.


need to win both of their remaining games and get some help to secure a spot. Peterson said any personal goals he’s shooting for are secondary to helping his team get into the postseason. “If I continue to play the way I’ve been playing, I’ll be able to continue what I told myself earlier and help lead my team to a championship,” Peterson said. “They kind of go hand-in-hand. If you rip off a 200-, 300-yard game, you get a ‘W,’ you’re doing what you told yourself that you were going to do in the offseason.” Peterson needs 188 yards to become the seventh player in NFL history to rush for 2,000 yards and first since Chris Johnson did it in the 2009 season. He has a franchise-record eight straight 100yard games and has ran for more than 200 yards in two of the last three weeks, making him a top candidate for the NFL’s most valuable player. What’s perhaps most impressive is that he’s had his best games in the five weeks since receiver Percy Harvin went down with an injury and Minnesota’s passing game fell to last in the NFL. “It’s not like we have a lot of things around him,” Vikings coach Leslie Frazier said of Peterson. “We have an offensive line that is doing a great job, but this is a new offensive line for the most part ... for Adrian to be doing what he’s doing with the pieces around him, he’s comeback player, MVP for sure.”

compared to Mississippi State’s 36. Central Arkansas coach Corliss Williamson said the inconsistent offense wasn’t necessarily the biggest problem. Letting Ware run wild in the post was. “He took us by surprise, how he was beating us inside,” Williamson said. “We’ve got to do a better job with that. Sometimes someone you don’t notice on the scouting report is going to step up, and I don’t think we made the right adjustments. They ended up with 42 points in the paint.”

Mississippi State has had a rough start to the season thanks to a fairly difficult schedule and a roster that’s down to six scholarship players after injuries to four — including starters Jalen Steele and Wendell Lewis. So it was encouraging for the Bulldogs to see some of the remaining healthy players show some improvement before Southeastern Conference play begins in a few weeks. Ware could be one of the cornerstones of Ray’s rebuilding project, with a wide body, soft hands and knack for finding good position and scoring at the rim. The 270-pounder from

Starkville, Miss., hit a few shots early and then the plan became obvious — feed him the ball whenever possible. The Bears didn’t have anyone big enough to stop him. “Our team was in chemistry,” Ware said. “We’ve been down for a few games, we were coming off losses, so we just decided we were tired of losing. We bonded together and we got inside looks as well as outside looks.” While Ware was dominating inside, the Bulldogs got some surprising help on the perimeter from Cunningham, a junior walk-on who has been forced into the regular

rotation because of the constant injures. He came into the game averaging just 1.7 points per game, but nailed two crucial 3-pointers in the second half that helped Mississippi State push out to a 60-49 lead with nine minutes remaining. Central Arkansas could never make a serious run after that point. “When we did get the game close, we would have a breakdown defensively,” Williamson said. “They would get a wide open layup or an uncontested shot, and when you’re making a comeback and playing on the road, you can’t have those things happen.


for a 12-yard score. “Everybody on our team responds to adversity well. So when they came back on us and made a game out of it, our team is still upbeat and saying we’re going to win this game.” And they did, with Brett

Baer adding his second and third field goals in the fourth quarter to seal the victory. Shane Carden passed for 278 yards and two touchdowns for East Carolina (8-5) but was intercepted in Cajuns territory by Jemarlous Moten in the fourth quarter as ECU drove for a potential

tying or go-ahead score. “They did a good job of changing, I guess, the coverage throughout the game,” Carden said of ULL. “But I think our offense could execute a lot better. It was nothing really they were doing. It was a lot of us just not executing routine plays.”

Today in History Today is Sunday, Dec. 23, the 358th day of 2012. There are eight days left in the year.

Today’s Highlight in History: On Dec. 23, 1972, in what became known as football’s “Immaculate Reception,” Franco Harris of the Pittsburgh Steelers caught a pass thrown by Terry Bradshaw and scored a touchdown after the ball had been deflected during a collision between Jack Tatum of the Oakland Raiders and the Steelers’ John Fuqua; the Steelers won the game (and an AFC divisional playoff) 13-7, despite controversy over the exact circumstances of the play.

On this date: In 1783, George Wash-

ington resigned as commander in chief of the Continental Army and retired to his home at Mount Vernon, Va. In 1788, Maryland passed an act to cede an area “not exceeding ten miles square” for the seat of the national government; about 2⁄3 of the area became the District of Columbia. In 1823, the poem “Account of a Visit from St. Nicholas” was published anonymously in the Troy (N.Y.) Sentinel; the verse, more popularly known as “‘Twas the Night Before Christmas,” was later attributed to Clement C. Moore. In 1893, the Engelbert Humperdinck opera “Haensel und Gretel” was first performed, in Weimar, Germany. In 1928, the National Broadcasting Company set up a permanent,

coast-to-coast network. In 1941, during World War II, American forces on Wake Island surrendered to the Japanese. In 1948, former Japanese premier Hideki Tojo and six other Japanese war leaders were executed in Tokyo. In 1962, Cuba began releasing prisoners from the failed Bay of Pigs invasion under an agreement in which Cuba would receive more than $50 million worth of food and medical supplies. In 1968, 82 crew members of the U.S. intelligence ship Pueblo were released by North Korea, 11 months after they had been captured. In 1972, a 6.2-magnitude earthquake struck Nicaragua, destroying most of the capital, Managua; the disaster claimed some 5,000

lives. In 1986, the experimental airplane Voyager, piloted by Dick Rutan and Jeana Yeager, completed the first non-stop, non-refueled round-theworld flight as it returned safely to Edwards Air Force Base in California. In 1991, fire destroyed a house in Corsicana, Texas, killing three young children; their father, Cameron Todd Willingham, was convicted of starting the blaze and was executed in 2004, although some experts raised questions about whether the fire had been deliberately set.

Tragedy struck the young mother two years ago when her husband — Shawn Davis — passed away after a massive coronary, leaving Ashley a widow to care for her three-year-son son Sean and one-week-old daughter Callie. J.C., 31, has traveled the world and has a unique story which eventually brought him to Northeast Mississippi and Prentiss County. Born in Portland, Oregon, he was adopted at age seven and reared in Texas. The father of three little ones — Jada, Cayden and Callan — J.C. spent six years active duty with the U.S. Navy. He recently moved from Booneville to Corinth and is owner of Milestone Communications -- the float entry which served as a plat-

form for his wedding proposal.

How they met The couple met through an on-line dating service, but some bizarre coincidences kept the two thinking the relationship would be more than an e-mail love affair. A month before the couple met, J.C. was living near Ashley’s parents, bother and sister, explained the future groom. One day the young, single father decided to ask his neighbors -- actually Ashley’s family --if his kids could play in the yard with the kids there and make some friendships, said J.C. The kids did play together and the little neighbors became friends, a.k.a. “The Brady Bunch”, only much

“She wasn’t expecting it at all. It was a much better reaction than I ever expected.” J.C. Miles Happily engaged

younger and a group of five. “Shockingly enough, once I’d moved and we’d actually met one another face to face and started talking, it turned out to be her family,” said J.C. “We fell for one another shortly thereafter and right then I decided I wanted to make it official at some point.” There were several coincidences along the way. For example, both of the couple’s nearly two-year-old children were born on the same day about an hour apart. The kids share a birthday

in February.

Planning the proposal J.C. began planning the proposal in September. He had never entered the local parade before and he needed equipment -generator, sound system, flatbed trailer. “She knew I was planning a proposal, but she didn’t know when and where,” noted J.C. The communications expert kept his lips sealed for the most part, but he wanted friends and family to be a part.

He selected the lighted corner of Cruise and Fillmore. Just prior to the parade, J.C. kidnapped Ashley’s cellphone and posted on Facebook what was about to happen, in case friends and family there could migrate to the street corner in question. He decided to offer the proposal during the parade because he thought it was both unique and romantic. Ashley never saw it coming, although at one point she asked J.C. if he was going to propose to her during the parade, said J.C. “I wasn’t so sure she believed me when I said no, not during the parade. So I suggested we skip the parade because it was such a hassle,” said J.C, but Ashley said proceed because they had too much money invested -- entry fee, equipment and trailer rental. Hassle ended up being an understatement as the float generator went on the blink, noted the future husband. Twice he had to pull to the side of the street and allow other floats to pass while he frantically tried to get the generator to operate.

Reaction Mr. Romantic managed to pull off a complete surprise. “She wasn’t expecting it at all,” said J.C. “It was a much better reaction than I ever expected.” Ashley was singing

“Hard Candy Christmas” when J.C. stopped the float, grabbed the microphone, pulled out a diamond ring in a box, took to one knee and asked his girlfriend to be his wife. The future bride clutched her hands to her face, then the tears began to flow. “I was very surprised and honestly overwhelmed with happiness,” said Ashley later. “I was so full of that feeling. It was the most romantic thing anyone’s ever done for me. I will definitely never forget it.” Ashley eventually asked about the whereabouts of her missing cellphone and J.C. admitted to the dirty deed. The Facebook post two hours prior to the parade worked perfectly. Many family members, friends and co-workers were present. The crowd got into the romantic, holiday spirit, hearing the propsal via the float's sound system. There were yells and screams, much applause and “oohs” and “aahs.” The two entered the float in the Farmington Christmas Parade a week after Corinth’s event, prompting one person in the crowd at Farmington to yell, “Are ya’ll married yet?” The happy ending to the story is just the beginning. Ashley said most certainly “yes” to J.C.’s surprise offer. A June wedding is in the works.

Florida Augusta Inge — The grand lady of Corinth BY TOM PARSON NPS Ranger

I have a pretty sweet deal with the newspaper. Our editor, Mark Boehler, has been gracious enough to let me write about anything I like and I do my best to keep my stories interesting. I don’t flatter myself in believing I’m the first columnist to tell you about the war in the pages of the Daily Corinthian. No, I’m just another in a long line of writers who have been reminding the city of its rich heritage. In fact, I’m standing on the shoulders of giants who have come before me. Mrs. Don Watkins wrote dozens upon dozens of columns in the 1940s, as did Beulah M. D’Olive Price in the ’70s and ’80s. Vicki Roach, RaNae S. Vaughn, Mrs. J. E. Gift, and Sam Pardue have provided priceless articles through the years, as did the great Margret Greene Rogers. Allow me to re-introduce you to a lady not on this list, a Corinth resident who wrote her articles from memory: Mrs. Florida Augusta Evans Inge. Mrs. Inge was one of the first locals who wrote about war-time Corinth and though she didn’t write for the Corinthian, her works graced the pages of Confederate Veteran Magazine among others.

Known as Florida, Flora or Augusta, she was born in South Carolina in 1834. Her folks moved to Mississippi when she was just a girl and as she grew older she fell for a young lawyer, William M. Inge. She was 18 when they married and six years later the couple left Aberdeen and moved into the Corinth House Hotel. William had a good practice and soon they were settling into their new home, “Rose Cottage,” on Fillmore Street. When the war broke out, William raised a local cavalry company and then transferred over to the infantry in the hopes of seeing more action. As luck would have it, he was home on furlough just before the Battle of Shiloh and served as a temporary aide on the staff of Brigadier General Charles Clark. (For more on William be sure you don’t miss next week’s article.) When General Albert Sidney Johnston arrived in Corinth in March of 1862, he accepted the Inge’s offer to use their home as his headquarters. William was often away with his own duties which left Augusta to serve as hostess for the Confederate chieftain. By all accounts, Mrs. Inge opened her home to the Confederacy and graciously accepted the general and his staff into her

Mrs. Inge was one of the first locals who wrote about war-time Corinth and though she didn’t write for the Corinthian, her works graced the pages of Confederate Veteran Magazine among others. home. There were three little Inges in the house at the time, Rebecca, George, and Mary, and the sound of children’s laughter had to have brightened the heart of Johnston, who was away from his own home. From her front porch, Augusta watched as the Confederate columns marched north on Fillmore Street toward the fateful field of Shiloh. Several of the regiments stopped in front of her house and Johnston presented the units with brand new battle flags. She recalled the bands playing “Listen to the Mockingbird,” “Her Bright Smile Haunts Me Still,” “Lorena,” and “The Girl I left Behind Me.” On the 4th of April, as Johnston was about to begin his ride north into Tennessee, Augusta attempted to press some food on the general to take for his lunch. He tactfully declined and told her “No thank you Mrs. Inge. We soldiers travel light.” When Johnston’s attention was drawn away she slipped a couple of

sandwiches and a piece of cake into his coat pocket. Less than three days later, the general’s lifeless body was returned to Rose Cottage. It was Augusta’s unhappy responsibility to prepare the body for travel to New Orleans. To assist her in the unpleasant task were her motherin-law, Rebecca Inge, and her neighbor, Ellen Polk. The entry to the general’s room was locked and the door was forced open. They unwrapped the muddy blanket Johnston was wrapped in and set to work. The gray coat was removed and in its pockets was found the missing room key and a half of one of the sandwiches. When they were finished, Mrs. Polk’s daughter Eugenia snipped three locks of hair from Johnston’s head. One was returned to his family and one of the others eventually ended up in the cornerstone of the Confederate Monument at Shiloh National Military Park. A few days later, the family packed their bags and sat out the remain-

der of the war with family in Aberdeen. Mrs. Inge returned in 1865 to find Rose Cottage a shell of its former beauty. Times were hard, but Colonel Inge resumed his law practice and soon fortune was smiling on the family once again. But the war left scars and Augusta was unable to stop thinking about the years of conflict. She found solace in poetry. She wrote dozens of poems and several of them graced the pages of Confederate Veteran Magazine as well as the Corinth Weekly Herald. “The Lost Child,” A Plea for Faith,” “Shiloh, the ‘Rest’ Beautiful,” and “Confederate Dead at Ft. Robinett, Corinth,” were just a few. Her husband immersed himself in politics and she remained busy as the head of a number of lady’s organizations. She was the president of the Methodist Missionary Society as well as the Women’s Christian Temperance Union, chaplain of the Corinth Chapter of the D.A.R., and the honorary president of the Mississippi Division of the United Daughters of the Confederacy. On May 17, 1917, at the age of 83, Augusta participated in the dedication of the Confederate Monument at Shiloh. Before a crowd of thousands, she read her poem “Ode to

Shiloh.” One of the verses read; “The Stars and Bars with the Star Spangled Banner, Are merged into one too sacred to sever; May winds of Liberty, Old Glory unfurl Over land and sea, and bring peace o’er the world.” In 1920, she was named the Poet Laureate for the Sons of Confederate Veterans of Tennessee. Her granddaughter wrote, “I never would have dared call her Granny, but with all her outward sternness, she was kindness itself and not free from little vanities. She was very proud of her first name Florida, but why she was named Florida, I never found out. My grandmother was an artist in everything she did.” Florida Augusta Inge passed away in 1925 at the ripe old age of ninetyone. Hundreds attended her funeral and her pallbearers were a group of surviving Confederate veterans. She was a grand lady of Corinth who would not let the city forget about its unique history and heritage. What a shame if Corinth ever forgot about her.

VICKSBURG — As history buffs, tourists and historians begin a surge onto Civil War battlefields to commemorate the 150th anniversary of the war, Vicksburg’s tourism figures are projected to be far outpaced by its Pennsylvania counterpart. “We cannot compete with Gettysburg,” said Bill Seratt, executive director of the Vicksburg Convention and Visitors Bureau. “They are in one of the largest population centers in the world.” Both battles ended in early July 1863 — Gettysburg on July 3 after a three-day battle, and Vicksburg on July 4 after close to three months of combat — but Gettysburg tends to draw more national attention and became a household name after President Abraham Lincoln’s famous address there. “If Lincoln had given the Vicksburg Address, it would be completely different,” Seratt said. The close dates of the battles and Mississip-

Vicksburg is within a five-hour drive of about 25 million people, according to census data. The area includes all of Mississippi and Louisiana and parts of Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas and Texas, including a portion of the Houston metro area. pi’s sweltering summer weather led Vicksburg National Military Park officials to yield to Gettysburg and plan the bulk of sesquicentennial activities for Memorial Day weekend, which is around the time the siege began, said military park Superintendent Mike Madell. Up to 140,000 people are expected in the Vicksburg park that weekend, Madell said. In 2011, 796,033 people visited the park. “We looked at Shiloh’s numbers, and they brought in 140,000 over their big weekend last year. I’m being optimistic and saying that’s realistic for Vicksburg,” Madell said. The numbers pale in comparison to those from Gettysburg, a town of about 8,000 near Pennsylvania’s border with Maryland. Gettysburg National

Military Park drew 3.3 million visitors during 2011, said Gettysburg Convention and Visitors Bureau spokesman Carl Whitehill. At least 4 million are expected to visit in 2013, Whitehill said. “Our blessing is that we are located within a fivehour drive of 69 million people,” Whitehill said. “That’s a huge draw for us, especially when gas prices go up.” The area immediately surrounding Gettysburg is rural, but within a few hours’ drive are the New York metropolitan area, Washington, D.C., Baltimore, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. Vicksburg is within a five-hour drive of about 25 million people, according to census data. The area includes all of Mississippi and Louisiana and parts of Alabama, Tennessee, Arkansas and Texas, including a por-

tion of the Houston metro area. In Gettysburg, preparations have been under way for more than two years, Whitehill said. Vicksburg started preparing about a year ago, Seratt said. Gettysburg has been filled with sesquicentennial banners for months, and shops are filling up with souvenirs, Whitehill said. “It’s definitely a good buzz around town. The merchants have been preparing for this a long time. It’s been in the backs of their heads for many years,” he said. For Vicksburg, the concern seems to be less on merchants preparing souvenirs than on actually having merchants downtown and along Clay Street. “We would like to see all the shops full, but we can work with all we have,” Seratt said.

Advertisements began airing last year in states across the South promoting Vicksburg and its connection to the war. “We’re not selling the history of Vicksburg or the history of Mississippi or the South. We’re selling American history. It’s the impact it had on American history, not just one day in the Civil War,” Seratt said. Gettysburg has two websites set up for sesquicentennial activities, and they are frequently updated, Whitehill said. VCVB is adding to the Civil War section of its website and updating another site specifically for the sesquicentennial, Seratt said. Vicksburg also is advertising on billboards and television stations across the South, Seratt said. Though Gettysburg is king when it comes to battlefields, the town is

somewhat downplaying the actual anniversary of the battle in favor of stretching tourism revenue throughout 2013. “We’re not just a town that out of the blue is planning something for this anniversary. We’ve always made it a side note that you don’t have to come during those days to commemorate the anniversary,” Whitehill said. “If we only held a threeday commemoration, we would be selling ourselves short and selling our visitors short.” On July 3, Friends of Vicksburg National Military Park will light 20,000 luminaries at 27 state monuments in the park as part of scheduled commemorations. Separately, a free app for iPhone and Android phones should launch by the end of March. The GPS-enabled app features facts and video explanations at park stops and sites important in the siege, including in Louisiana, Raymond and Port Gibson.

Peak of the rut could create signature moment Harvesting a big mature white-tail buck is acknowledged as a signature achievement, and over the next few weeks, many area sportsmen will be hunting harder than ever in trying to leave their mark on the record books as deer season culminates into its most exciting stage. Late December and into early January is generally when peak deer rutting activity occurs in this area. Every die-hard deer hunter wants to be in the woods during this period. A higher percentage of doe deer will be coming into their estrous cycles, which means odds are much greater for catching a bruiser buck making a mistake during daylight than at any other time of the season. Mature white-tail deer are one of the keenest, most cautious and slyest creatures to ever be hunted by mankind. They can

stay hidden as if they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even exist. Every move seems to be calcuDavid lated and Green has a purFor Outdoors pose. the hunter to have a decent chance of conquering one of these brutes, he must follow the Xâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s of the playbook and also have luck on his side. The play chart always starts off with the assignment of hunting in an area where a big buck is known to rule. This can be proven by an actual sighting, finding unusually large tracks, rubs and scrapes, or through trail camera photos. Scrapes and rubs made by a really big buck are easily recognized. A scrape is usually double the width of a basketball basket

and dug fairly deep, while rubs are typically made on trees with a diameter the size of the barrel of a baseball bat and sometimes much larger. However, all scrapes made by big bucks are not oval shaped. I hunted a monster buck last year that I nicknamed â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Grave Digger.â&#x20AC;? A couple of his scrapes were about six feet in length and about three feet wide. Wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t doubt it if the buck was thinking about me while making the scrapes. Since I kept intruding on his territory and interrupting his love life, he was probably wishing that he could put me in it and cover me up. I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the buck and it appears I wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t this year. That is, if the rumor is true. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Grave Diggerâ&#x20AC;? is said to have been involved in a fatal car accident earlier this fall. Tracks made by mature

the scented-up area- especially during daylight- and sometimes even become camera shy. This leads me to another point. Territories where deer have received minimal hunting pressure are likely areas to find the buck of your dreams. Deer associate human scent as danger, and where thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been less intrusion, the odds are much better for catching a big buck off guard. But just because thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no evidence of a big buck roaming around in your neck of the woods, that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean you wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have the opportunity to take one. Of all the big buck success stories Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard over the years, most of the time the successful hunter had no idea the animal even existed. The bucks had never been visually seen or caught on a trail cam photo. Though this deer season

has been quite unusual and tough, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s another reason to be optimistic about getting your buck as the peak of the rut nears. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter how good of a hunter you are. Sometimes you just have to be at the right place at the right time. During the rut, a monster buck is liable to show up at anytime and anywhere. Follow the game plan that puts you in the best possible position and, just maybe, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lady Luckâ&#x20AC;? will leave her mark on you. Merry Christmas to all!

bucks normally measure three inches in length or longer. You wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need a tape measure though. Once youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve found a track that resembles what a young cow would make, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll automatically know youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve located a â&#x20AC;&#x153;moose.â&#x20AC;? For example,â&#x20AC;? The Grave Diggerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;sâ&#x20AC;? track measured five inches in length and three inches in width. Trail camera photos provide positive evidence of the size of the bucks using an area and they can be helpful in which ones to target. Photos of mature bucks are usually night-time pictures, but if you have one thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s showing up in daylight, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the one most likely to be killable. There is a problem with relying on trail cameras to do your scouting, though. Each time you go to retrieve the SD card, human scent is left behind. Mature bucks begin avoiding

Disneyland expands celebration BY BETH J. HARPAZ Associated Press

NEW YORK — Disneyland is marking Three Kings Day in a big way this season, another milestone in the mainstreaming of a holiday that is beloved in Latin America and other cultures around the world. The Christian holiday — also known as Twelfth Night or Feast of the Epiphany — takes place Jan. 6, ending the 12 days of Christmas. Many Hispanic communities in the U.S. celebrate Three Kings Day with parades and performances depicting the Biblical story of three kings following a star to find the baby Jesus, bringing gifts of frankincense, gold and myrrh. Disneyland spokeswoman Michele Himmelberg said the theme park in Anaheim, Calif., “launched the Three Kings Day celebration last year as a test. It was a big success, particularly with the Hispanic community, and we’re expanding it this year to a larger area.” The park will host Three Kings Day on Jan. 4 to 6 at the Big Thunder Ranch Jamboree in Disneyland’s Frontierland. There will be Mexican folklorico dancing, mariachi musicians, photo ops with Disney characters and bilingual hosts offering face painting, crown making and other children’s activities. Food carts will serve sweet corn tamales, chimichangas, Mexican hot chocolate and king cake, which is a round, sweet, doughy cake called rosca de reyes

“I love the fact that Disney is doing this. It means a lot. This is the changing face of America.” Evette Rios Correspondent, ABC’s ‘The Chew’ (king’s ring). “I love the fact that Disney is doing this,” said Evette Rios, a correspondent with ABC’s “The Chew,” who grew up celebrating Three Kings Day with her Puerto Rican parents in Brooklyn, N.Y. “It means a lot. This is the changing face of America. We are becoming more open to different holidays and traditions. I don’t have a homogenous view of what America is and I’m glad Disney doesn’t either.” As a child, Rios said, she’d leave a dish of water under her bed for the three kings’ camels — “actually for the horses because there were no camels in Puerto Rico” — along with grass to represent hay. The next morning, she’d find small toys hidden in her shoes, gifts left by the kings. Rios still celebrates the holiday by attending a parade in East Harlem in Manhattan organized by El Museo del Barrio, a museum devoted to Latin American and Caribbean culture. The colorful parade, in its 36th year, includes costumed actors, floats, bands and real camels. It’s always held on a weekday — this year Jan. 4 — so schools can participate. In Miami, three kings of

basketball — Heat superstars LeBron James, Dwyane Wade and Chris Bosh — are grand marshals of the 43rd annual Three Kings parade in the CubanAmerican neighborhood of Little Havana. The parade is scheduled for Jan. 20 along Southwest Eighth Street. The holiday has a French accent in New Orleans, where Twelfth Night kicks off carnival season, culminating in Mardi Gras. Each Jan. 6, the mayor and leaders of top Mardi Gras krewes — organizations that host carnival parades and balls — meet at historic Gallier Hall to serve king cake, which in New Orleans is called galette des rois and is iced in purple, green and gold, the colors of Mardi Gras. Both the French and Mexican cakes have a toy baby representing the Christ child baked inside, but Mexican king cakes are usually topped in Christmas colors of red and green, colors also found in the Mexican flag. Ricardo Cervantes, co-owner of La Monarca bakeries in Southern California, says they sell thousands of king cakes from their stores in East Los Angeles and the largely Hispanic city of Huntington Park. But surprisingly, sales are also strong at a

Santa Monica location “in more of an Anglo neighborhood. People who are not Mexican, they are intrigued,” he said. “We also get a lot of people now bringing a cake into the office.” A new La Monarca opening this month in Pasadena will also carry king cake. Huntington Park hosts a large Three Kings celebration, as does Olvera Street in downtown Los Angeles, a block-long historic attraction showcasing Mexican culture where a candlelight procession takes place each year. Other Three Kings Day celebrations around the country include a parade in the Humboldt Park neighborhood of Chicago; a bilingual performance of the Biblical story that’s been staged for more than three decades at the GALA Theatre in Washington D.C., and festivities at the Latino Cultural Center in Dallas and The Children’s Museum of Houston. Schools in Hartford, Conn., which has a large Hispanic population, close when the holiday falls on a weekday.

Hunt for childhood friends yields surprising discovery DEAR ABBY: While searching for two of my husband’s childhood friends, with his knowledge, I believe I may have found a child he doesn’t know is his. I’m not positive that the child is his, but the time frame and location indicate that he could be, and there’s a strong resemblance to my husband’s brother. (I have seen photos on the Internet.) I am curious whether my hunch is correct, but I’m afraid of asking the questions, not knowing how they would be received. My husband is a kind and caring person, a great husband and father. The child could have been conceived during a casual, one-night stand before we started dating. I now wish I had never found this information because by not asking, I feel like I’m in denial, and by not saying anything to him, I feel like a terrible person. If the child is his, the mother has kept this from him for more than 10 years. I’d really appreciate some input. What’s the right thing to do? — WONDERING IN THE SOUTHWEST DEAR WONDERING: I see nothing to be gained by withholding this from your spouse. Tell your husband about your research, and what you think you may have turned up. Then ask if he is acquainted with the child’s mother. The resemblance could be coincidental, or the child could have been fathered by another family member. DEAR ABBY: One of my fond memories of my father when I was growing up was that he would always order my mom’s meal when we were out for dinner. Of course, she decided what she wanted to eat, but when the waiter

came, my dad would always say, “My wife would like the ...” Now that I’m older and married, my husband does the

same for me. One couple we dine out with regularly gives me a difficult time about this “tradition.” They make comments like, “Oh, Susan’s not allowed to speak in a restaurant.” The wife has also told me she thinks it’s disrespectful to me when my husband orders my food. I have explained that it was a cherished memory of mine and not something forced on me. It’s like when a man opens a door for a woman. I can definitely open the door myself, but I appreciate the sweet gesture. I try to respect opinions that differ from my own, and I don’t expect everyone to do as I do. Do you think I’m living in the Stone Age? — SUSAN IN VIRGINIA DEAR SUSAN: No, I do not; you appear to be living quite happily in the present. While the tradition you and your husband are observing is “antiquated,” you are hurting no one. Please allow me to make an observation: When couples dine out together socially, they are supposed to relax, entertain each other and have a good time. Giving you “heartburn” regarding who orders your dinner is rude, particularly since this couple has done it more than once and has been given an explanation. From my perspective, you might enjoy your evenings out more if you shared them with this particular couple less often.

Capsule reviews of new movie releases ‘Amour’ Michael Haneke takes a subject you don’t often see in movies and probably don’t even want to see — the slow, steady deterioration of an elderly woman — and handles it with great grace. The Austrian writer-director, who’s achieved a reputation for a certain mercilessness over the years through films like “Cache” and “Funny Games,” displays a surprising and consistent humanity here, and draws unadorned but lovely performances from his veteran stars, Jean-Louis Trintignant and Emmanuelle Riva. Haneke focuses on the intimate moments of their changing lives as the longtime married couple remains holed up in their comfortable Paris apartment, coping day to day, waiting for eventual death. It will surely strike a chord with anyone who’s watched a loved one slip away in this manner, whether it’s a parent or a spouse. But Haneke’s aesthetic can feel too stripped-down, too one-note in its dignified monotony. He will hold a shot, as we know, and once again he avoids the use of a score, so all that’s left to focus on is the insular, dreary stillness of quiet descent. Certainly minimalism is preferable to melodrama in telling this kind of story, but Haneke takes this approach to such an extreme that it’s often hard to maintain emotional engagement. PG-13 for mature thematic material including a disturbing act, and for brief language. In French with English subtitles. 125 minutes. Two and a half stars out of four. — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic

‘Django Unchained’ For his latest blood fest, Quentin Tarantino largely replays all of his other blood fests, specifically his last flick, “Inglourious Basterds.” In that 2009 tale of wickedly savage retribution, Allied Jewish soldiers get to rewrite World War II history by going on a killing spree of Nazis. In Tarantino’s new tale of wickedly savage retribution, a black man (Jamie Foxx) gets to rewrite Deep South history by becoming a bounty hunter on a killing spree of white slave owners and overseers just before the Civil War. Granted, there’s something gleefully satisfying in watching evil people get what they have coming. But the film is Tarantino at his most puerile and least inventive, the premise offering little more than cold, nasty revenge and barrels of squishing, squirting blood. The usual Tarantino genre mishmash — a dab of blaxploitation here, a dollop of Spaghetti Western there — is so familiar now that it’s tiresome, more so because the filmmaker continues to linger with chortling delight over every scene, letting conversations run on interminably and gunfights carry on to grotesque excess. Bodies bursting blood like exploding water balloons? Perversely fun the first five or six times, pretty dreary the 20th or 30th. Tarantino always gets good actors who deliver, though, and it’s the performances by Foxx, Leonardo DiCaprio, Christoph Waltz and Samuel L. Jackson that make the film intermittently entertaining amid moments when the characters are either talking one another to death or just plain killing each other. R for strong graphic violence throughout, a vicious fight, language and some nudity. 165 minutes. Two stars out of four. — David Germain, AP Movie Writer

‘Jack Reacher’ The idea of watching a movie in which a sniper me-

thodically manufactures his own bullets, practices weekly at a gun range, then waits quietly in an empty parking garage before shooting five people dead may not sound like the most appealing form of entertainment during these tragic days. Nevertheless, it’s important to assess “Jack Reacher” on its own terms, for what it is and what it isn’t. Besides being caught in some unfortunate timing, it’s also clever, well-crafted and darkly humorous, and it features one of those effortless bad-ass performances from Tom Cruise that remind us that he is indeed a movie star, first and foremost. OK, so maybe Cruise doesn’t exactly resemble the Reacher of British novelist Lee Child’s books: a 6-foot-5, 250-pound, blond behemoth. If you haven’t read them, you probably won’t care. Even if you have read them, Christopher McQuarrie’s film — the first he’s directed and written since 2000’s “The Way of the Gun” — moves so fluidly and with such confidence, it’ll suck you in from the start. Jack Reacher is a former military investigator who’s become a bit of a mythic figure since he’s gone off the grid. When the deadly shooting occurs at the film’s start, authorities believe they’ve quickly found their man: a sniper who’s ex-Army himself. He reveals nothing during his interrogation but manages to scribble the words “Get Jack Reacher” on a notepad before winding up in a coma. But when Reacher arrives and reluctantly agrees to help the defense attorney (Rosamund Pike) investigate, he finds the case isn’t nearly as simple as it seems. PG-13 for violence, language and some drug material. 130 minutes. Three stars out of four. — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic

‘On the Road’ Walter Salles’ adaptation of Jack Kerouac’s famous novel was made with noble intentions, finely-crafted filmmaking and handsome casting, but, alas, it does not burn, burn, burn. This first ever big-screen adaptation of the Beat classic doesn’t pulse with the electric, mad rush of Kerouac’s feverish phenomenon. Salles (”The Motorcycle Diaries”) approached the book with reverence and deep research, and perhaps that’s the problem — that its spirit got suffocated by respectfulness and affected acting. If anything has made “On the Road” so beloved, it’s not its artful composition, but its yearning: the urgent passion of its characters to break free of themselves and post-war America. As our Dean Moriarty, Kerouac’s stand-in for Neal Cassady, Garrett Hedlund (”Tron”) gives his all in an ultimately failed attempt to find Moriarty’s wild magnetism within him. As the center of the book and the film — the Gatsby to our narrator Sal Paradise (Sam Riley) — he’s crucial to “On the Road” working. The women, afterthoughts in the book, have more fire. Salles has focused particularly on the carnality of Kerouac’s tale, and it threatens to overtake the film. As Moriarty’s first wife, Marylou, Kristen Stewart has a slinky sensuality that briefly dominates the movie. But her character is never developed beyond her sexy bohemia. In a few scenes as Moriarty’s heartbroken second wife, Kirsten Dunst makes the strongest impression. Elisabeth Moss, also as one left behind, excels, shouting: “They dumped me in Tucson! In Tucson!” Viggo Mortensen, Steve Buscemi, Terrence Howard and Amy Adams all make cameos, mostly suggesting the prestige of the project. R for strong sexual content, drug use and language. 123 minutes. Two

Horoscopes BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Creator’s Syndicate

According to some statisticians, an average person living to the age of 80 will walk around 110,000 miles in a lifetime. Because Earth’s circumference at the equator is 24,901.55 miles, that’s the equivalent of walking several times around the globe. Under the determined Capricorn sun and with the moon in earthy Taurus, many will walk twice their daily average today. ARIES (March 21-April 19). To feel valued and understood, you have to believe that people are listening to you -- really listening. You’ll make an extra effort to give and receive quality attention. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). People with high self-esteem are happier in their relationships. That’s one more reason to get on your own side, root for yourself and do the things that will make you happy. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). The personal work you do will further your individuality, but that doesn’t mean you won’t be as intimate as you want to be with loved ones. Closeness and oneness are not the same. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The qualities you are looking for in a partner have changed over time, and they will continue to do so. That’s why it’s so important to make a commitment to change together. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). It has been suggested that nothing worth having can be purchased with money. Today’s highly satisfying purchase will make you question the validity of that statement. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). The

task you take on won’t be as easy for you as it seems to be for others. But just because you’re not the best at it doesn’t mean you should give up. Persevere. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Do you know what your philosophy of life is? You’ll give some thought to this. The ideas and realizations you come up with will improve your sense of purpose and help you communicate a stronger presence. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Passion makes people behave in crazy ways, and you know this first hand. A sentimental mood takes hold, and you’ll have fun recalling your own passionate moves and the path along which they led you. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Always leave the party on a high note. This adage also applies to meetings, conversations and relationships, although in the case of relationships, it’s particularly challenging. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). With the sun energizing your part of the sky, it will suddenly dawn on you how to highlight your talents in the days and weeks to come. The world truly needs what only you can give. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). It’s a time to spread good will, not a time to push hot buttons. Politics can destroy good vibes and ruin relationships that were doing just fine before the political conversation. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Stories get told and retold, and they morph as they travel. You may find it amusing when a story of yours gets changed in the retelling. Then again, you may find cause to set the record straight.

‘This Is 40’ Every inch a Judd Apatow movie, from the pop culture references and potty mouths to the blunt body humor and escapist drug use. And like all of Apatow’s movies, it’s a good 20 minutes too long. But within that affectionately messy sprawl lies a maturation, an effort to convey something deeper, more personal and more substantive. That goes beyond the casting of his real-life wife, Leslie Mann, as half of the couple in question, and the Apatow children, Maude and Iris, as the family’s daughters in this sort-of-sequel to the 2007 hit “Knocked Up.” As writer and director, Apatow seems more interested in finding painful nuggets of truth than easy laughs. Much of the banter between longtime Los Angeles marrieds Pete (Paul Rudd) and Debbie (Mann) can be very funny, but frequently it’s raw and painful as they have the kind of conversations about kids, finances and sex that might make many people in the audience feel an uncomfortable shiver of recognition. The film takes place during the three-week period when Pete and Debbie are both turning 40 (although Debbie likes to pretend she’s still 38). Birthday parties, fights about money, school confrontations, bratty kid flareups and awkward attempts at reconciling with parents are among the many events that occur during this vulnerable time of transition. The strong supporting cast includes Albert Brooks, John Lithgow, Jason Segel and a surprisingly funny Megan Fox. R for sexual content, crude humor, pervasive language and some drug material. 133 minutes. Three stars out of four. — Christy Lemire, AP Movie Critic

‘West of Memphis’ “The Hobbit” director Peter Jackson reveals the results of his own unexpected journey in this magnificent documentary, which chronicles how an unwavering band of filmmakers, artists and other dissenters challenged the judicial system and won. The case of the West Memphis Three — Damien Echols, Jason Baldwin and Jessie Misskelley, imprisoned as teens in the 1993 murders of three Cub Scouts — has become widely known through the activism of A-list actors and musicians who took up the cause, along with three “Paradise Lost” documentaries that called the convictions into question. After seeing that first “Paradise Lost” film in 2005, Jackson and wife Fran Walsh stepped in, financing their own investigation and enlisting director Amy Berg (the Academy Award-nominated “Deliver Us from Evil”) to chronicle the convoluted case and the new findings that were uncovered. This is nonfiction filmmaking at its best, a film with a fierce point of view yet one that doesn’t pretend to have all the answers or a monopoly on truth. It tells a great story, one that surprises, appalls, riles and gratifies, even as it leaves at least as many questions as it resolves. The film has a triumphant conclusion — freedom for Echols, Baldwin and Misskelley after 18 years in prison. But the ending vexes even as it satisfies. The abiding image is that of the other West Memphis Three, little boys who died horribly, for whom justice has not been served. R for disturbing violent content and some language. 147 minutes. Three and a half stars out of four. — David Germain, AP Movie Writer
