Tax time: Procrastinators get extra time BY JEBB JOHNSTON jjohnston@dailycorinthian.com

Don’t forget: Tax day is Tuesday. The Internal Revenue Service and State of Mississippi granted procrastinators a couple of extra days for income tax filing this year because federal offices are closed on both the normal deadline and on Monday,

which is Emancipation Day in the District of Columbia. For those who do not have a computer or simply prefer the old-fashioned paper forms, the Corinth Library has most of the basic ones available, such as federal 1040s. “We have Mississippi forms but we don’t have the instructions,” said Anne Wood of the

Corinth Library. “And we can print forms for people to file extensions if they need to.” People who do not have a computer but would like to file electronically might consider booking some time on the library’s public access computers. IRS regional spokeswoman Dee Harris Stepter notes that

all the forms can be found at IRS.gov, but she recommends that taxpayers take advantage of the free electronic filing options linked at IRS.gov. “Filing your return electronically is a great option precisely because it is so fast and easy and safe and secure,” said Stepter. Those who can’t make the April 17 deadline can request an

extension by filing Form 4868, but taxes must still be paid by April 17. “An extension can offer valuable breathing room if you’re unable to meet the deadline, and it also helps avoid common mistakes that can happen if we rush,” she said. Mississippi tax forms can be printed at www.dor.ms.gov.

‘Walking Miracle’

Building permits Tragic accident transformed local woman see lean 1st quarter BY STEVE BEAVERS

sbeavers@dailycorinthian.com

Most Corinthians will not soon forget May 2010. Haley Little is one who will forever remember the month. A flood changed life for many on May 2. A day later, a tragic accident transformed Little into a walking miracle of God. The 32-year-old, her husband and two stepchildren were headed to Sharp’s Bottom for family time. The quartet packed a picnic lunch for a day of riding trails the day after Haley’s 30th birthday. “We had been riding for hours and having a big time,” said Little. The fun turned upside-down when Little and her stepdaughter, Abby, tried to go around a tricky spot on a trail they had never been on before. Husband Trent, and her stepson, Colton, had already made it through the spot. “The Lord was there all day preparing me for this,” said Little. While going up a little bit of an incline, the ATV flipped back on Little, who had taken over driving from Abby because of the unfamiliarity of the trail. “I don’t know what happened,” she said. “I don’t know if I gave it too much power or what.” The four-wheeler came back and crushed Little’s face, leaving her blinded and bleeding out in the middle of nowhere. “I remember sitting up and saying ‘sweet Jesus,’” she said while remaining conscious the whole

A lean first quarter for construction activity in Corinth saw upgrades to existing homes through remodeling projects making up almost the full slate of building work. Project values for the quarter totaled $555,350, well shy of the first-quarter 2011 total of $2.33 million. The quarter saw no new home construction starts, down from one a year earlier, and no new commercial construction starts, down from two a year earlier. The biggest project of the quarter was America’s Car Mart, which is remodeling the former Los Amigos restaurant building at 2402 Highway 72 East for a used car business. Permits for the quarter:

Iuka-born musical siblings come home for concerts BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

The Thomas Brothers, a duo of Iuka-born musical siblings, will play two “Dinner & Concert” shows at the Little Episcopal Church in downtown Iuka. The shows will be held Friday and Saturday, April 27 and 28. For $10 — which includes tax and tips — concert-goers can convene for dinner at The Place, a restaurant at the intersection of Front Street and Main Street, anytime between 5 p.m. and showtime. The concerts will begin at 7:30 p.m. at the Little

Episcopal Church on Eastport Street. Admission is also $10. Singer and songwriters Eddie and Frank Thomas recently completed a three-week, 14-concert tour of England. “We had a great time, it was overwhelming, really,” said Eddie. The brothers last played in at the church in January. During the show they talked about the town outside and their experiences growing up and going to school and church. This became an idea for their British shows. “In England we’d talk from the point of view of a little church in

Iuka, and take folks on a trip to Iuka,” explained Frank. Frank said the brothers weren’t sure if the songs and experiences would translate to audience across the Atlantic. “Would they understand about a 30-watt drop-light from the ceiling or other things in our “Maggie’s House’ album? We decided we were going to go find out, and now we’re coming back after finding out that they did understand. People understand the images,” said Frank. “A friend in England told us that people in England see America as

a great big place, a huge country, a lot going on. And Americans are a big people, big folks with big attitudes,” recalled Eddie. “He said, ‘You two came over with a story that was very personal — you live the same as we do. It’s easy seeing you as individuals.’ We were very thrilled with that.” Eddie said the brothers had no idea about how the English audiences would receive their songs about growing up in the far northeastern corner of Mississippi, and they were happily surPlease see THOMAS | 2A

tral graduate. “I didn’t want to die in front of the kids.” The young woman was flown to The Regional Medical Center (Med) in Memphis, Tenn., where she would spend the next 17 days. Little was in the trauma unit 13 days and in the step-down unit another four days. She had suffered Le Fort III injuries with her right eye pushed up above her temple. Common symptoms of the injuries are obvious visible trauma, bleeding, pain, swelling and tenderness. Patients with Le Fort III fractures may have anosmia (loss of smell) due to fracture of the cribriform plate (the horizontal plate of the ethmoid bone). Patients may also have a condition

Haley Little called “dish face deformity” in which the face appears somewhat concave due to blunt trauma. “The only bones not crushed in my face were my lower jaw and teeth,” she said while sitting on the steps of Oakland Baptist Church. “My bones were just floating ... I will never forget the sound and feelings of that day.” Originally told she would spend six weeks in the trauma unit, the former manager of Kirkland’s was there just under two weeks. “I had more people praying for me than I could imagine and I felt it,” said Little. “I knew the Lord would get me

through this.” He did. The daughter of Mike and Myra Willis decided it was time to let the Lord take control while in restraints in a hospital bed. “I remember singing that Carrie Underwood song ‘Jesus Take the Wheel’ in the hospital,” said the 2002 University of North Alabama grad. “I told Him ‘it is all you.’” The AC graduate, who underwent four surgeries during her hospital stay, suffered horrible hallucinations from the medication. Being able to see her husband’s face for the first time also gave her reason to fight for her life. “Seeing him (Trent)

was another confirmation I was going to live,” she said. She has endured nine surgeries with a 10th performed on Friday. Her right eye was removed in June of 2010 with a prosthetic eye inserted in October of the same year. “That made me feel more a person,” she said of having the eye. “It was just another step in healing.” The surgeries have reduced the number of screws in the young woman’s face from 147 to 53. “I’m a better person and so is my husband after all of this,” said Little. “We have an unbelievable faith because we both saw

a miracle happen.” Reared in church and taught to pray by her grandmother, Delola Austin, Little first saw the faithfulness of God when praying for her father to be saved. “Jesus has never failed me,” she said. “He was with me the whole time and the only way to live is to call out to Him.” Little went back to work after 15 months. It was there where she got to share her story many times with customers. “Her story is unreal and you can see how God had his hand on her,” said Joanne Russom of Selmer, Tenn. “I am so impressed with what she has

gone through and to not be bitter ... I just couldn’t get her off my mind when she told me her story.” “It is a way to use my scar to tell the story of how good God is,” added Little. “I want it to be God’s words, not mine. I know the Lord wants to use me, I just want him to show me how and where.” Little has quit her job and is waiting to see what the Lord has in store for her. After visiting the scene of the accident, she is more determined to let others know about the power of God. “When I have doubts, God wants me to trust Him more,” she said while clutching a prayer quilt with 84 handwritten Bible verses made by a college friend. “He will bring you through it ... when there is nothing else, there is always Him.”

Corinth, Miss.

Children may need ‘Hunger Games’ lessons In “The Hunger Games,” author Suzanne Collins starts the story in the middle of the story. I’ve only read the first two books of the trilogy and don’t know what the third book will reveal. Maybe Collins tells how the state of Panem -- name of the fictional nation in the book -became so oppressive. The good news for book Danny readers and moviegoers is Collins portrays heroic solutions Gardner to oppressive, tyrannical cenColumnist tralized government through acts of individual sacrifice. This is a lesson our children and grandchildren will likely need. Strong centralized governments have historically been tyrannical and oppressive by nature. Collins plays that theme like a fiddle as she contrasts the opulence and gluttonous indulgences of the Capitol with utter poverty and want in the twelve districts outside the Capitol. The tale goes something like this: once upon a time Panem was a prosperous nation where everybody enjoyed … well, prosperity. One day District 13 rebelled against the central government and reduced the whole nation to poverty. District 13 was allegedly annihilated and the other twelve districts were submitted to cruel Hunger Games annually to remind “the people” that rebellion against the Capitol is never a good thing. The story begins in the 74th year of the Hunger Games. In the Hunger Games, a boy and girl between the ages of 12 and 18 are selected randomly from each district to fight to the death until only one child is left as the victor. The victor’s district wins abundant food for the next year. The event is televised nationally so everyone sees the brutality and killing one might imagine as children are forced to kill other children in barbarous ways. Of course, those in the Capitol are exempted from having their children play in these games, and they also enjoy year round abundance of food and other delights, not that there are any parallels in America today. But, I digress. In the first book the heroine and hero both become victors after embarrassing the Capitol into allowing two victors for the first time. You see, rulers in the Capitol are very thinned skinned and demand complete subjection by the masses, not unlike some of our rulers in Washington today. When the two are left at the end of the game, instead of fighting to the death they threaten to commit suicide -- bad PR for the Capitol, and a potential trigger for revolution. And, in fact, the act of bravery does spark a rebellion in several of the isolated districts, unbeknownst to everybody outside of the Capitol (the elite media in the Capitol only report the Capitol line) except corrupt leaders of the individual districts who enforce laws with ruthless police called Peacekeepers. Bless them . . . Panem has laws restricting any kind of protest against the Capitol, sort of like HR 347, the bill President Obama signed last week prohibiting any kind of protest against him or anyone under Secret Service protection in any arena where he travels. Don’t get me wrong. Americans can still protest Mr. Obama’s policies, but just not in his presence. Sorry, I keep digressing because Collins’ trilogy has so many parallels with Washington’s centralized government taking over America at the expense of our individual rights and freedoms. I recommend reading “The Hunger Games” especially for young folks (13 and older) who can gain a vision of how individuals can rise up against the tyranny of oppressive centralized government and media to gain inalienable rights granted to every one of us by our Creator.

State losing two leading editors STARKVILLE — In Prentiss Headlight editor Patsy Speights and Clarion-Ledger editorial director David Hampton, Mississippi is losing two of our state’s most influential and dynamic journalists. In Patsy Speights, the people of Prentiss and Jeff Davis County have been served by a feisty, fearless small town editor who literally exhausted her health in working to give them the best community newspaper possible. Not only was Patsy a dedicated and no-nonsense reporter covering the beats of crime, government and politics, but she also worked tirelessly to improve the quality of life and the economic development of the newspaper’s territory. Owned by the Jacobs family in Brookhaven, The Prentiss Headlight has – despite its relatively size in the pecking order of Mississippi newspapers – been an innovator. Patsy has been a master of the Byzantine rules and regulations of the U.S. Postal Service as it related to community news-

papers and she was regularly called upon by her colleagues as a mentor and guide. P a t s y ’ s Sid Salter acumen was Columnist actually recognized by the USPS with a national award. But Patsy is best known as the gravel-voiced, tough lady with the shock of white hair and the laughing eyes that charmed even those politicians whose toes she mashed in the newspaper when it was necessary. She served as president of the Mississippi Press Association and the MPA Education Foundation. To say that she is roundly respected by her peers from the state’s largest newspapers to the smallest is an understatement. Patsy’s retirement after a long and productive career will be observed formally this week and I wish her health, happiness and time with her loved ones. At the state’s largest newspaper, much has been written about the exodus of

eight of The Clarion-Ledger’s senior staffers as part of a Gannett early retirement incentive program or buyout. It’s an economic strategy utilized by a number of large companies and some government entities as well to reduce payroll by giving senior employees incentive to retire and replacing them with younger, less expensive employees. One of the senior C-L staffers that will depart the newspaper is Hampton, the paper’s longtime editorial director and one of the best journalists and best human beings I’ve ever known. Detractors have called Hampton every name in the book, but most of those names have “liberal” mixed into the criticism somewhere in the phrase. David Hampton is an unabashed liberal by Mississippi standards, which makes him a moderate by national standards. On matters of civil rights, public education and the death penalty, Hampton’s deep religious faith has been his guide and he doesn’t apolo-

gize for those beliefs regardless the criticism. While we’ve argued about politics on occasion, I’ve had few friends in whom I’ve invested more trust, respect, and admiration. Hampton shaped public policy in Mississippi for four decades and he did so without compromising his principles or his beliefs. We’ve hunted together, buried loved ones together, and most of all laughed together. He is a good and decent man who got in the public arena and stood his ground. In my book, that’s tough enough. As Mississippi’s most heavily armed liberal, I wish David slow deer, plentiful turkeys, and schools of fish with a death wish. For both David and Patsy, readers really won’t know how much their voices of reason will be missed in Mississippi journalism until they’ve exited the public stage.

Titanic: The reality was quite different BELFAST, Northern Ireland — Here, where Titanic, the massive White Star Line luxury liner, was built -- the joke for years has been, “It was fine when it left here.” This year marks the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the ship “Not even God himself could sink....” and the centenary is being observed in diverse ways. There are solemn remembrances. A “Requiem for the Lost Souls of the Titanic” is scheduled for St. Anne’s Cathedral and there’s a Titanic Commemoration Service and Unveiling of the Titanic Memorial Gardens at City Hall. Elsewhere, the government and entrepreneurs are seeking to make a profit. The Titanic Belfast visitor attraction opened March 31 and is sold out through April 16. MTV UK is staging a “Titanic Sounds” event, which it is billing as “the biggest party in the world.” A party about a tragedy; how modern. In America, where Titanic was headed when it sank April 15, 1912, about 960 miles northeast of New York City, James Cameron’s 1997 blockbuster film “Titanic” is being re-released in 3-D. The film gives us the fictional romance between “Rose” and “Jack” and, as generally agreed, even by Cameron

himself, a host of historical inaccuracies that may be all a generation of young people Cal will learn Thomas about the ill-fated ship Columnist and its tragic maiden voyage. The 1953 film, “Titanic,” starring Clifton Webb and Barbara Stanwyck, also contained historical inaccuracies and fabricated scenarios, as did the 1958 film “A Night to Remember,” another Hollywood interpretation of the tragic sinking. The true story of the Titanic, however, is quite different and as far as I know has never been told in a feature film. In Cameron’s version, he depicts the wealthy as asserting their privilege over third-class passengers and crew so they could escape in lifeboats not made available to all, a depiction that plays on issues of class warfare and social inequality. In many cases, the opposite was true, according to documented historical accounts that include real-life examples of rich passengers coming to the aid of the less fortunate.

Writing in the March issue of the Christian publication, “Tabletalk,” Dr. Harry L. Reeder, a Presbyterian minister in Birmingham, Ala., cites one such example of the selflessness of the rich and their sacrifices for the “lower classes.” Dr. Reeder laments the missed opportunity by filmmakers to tell a far more dramatic and compelling story, the real story of the Titanic. Reeder muses on the “amazing event” chronicled in historic accounts, in which, “Men of power and prestige sacrificed their lives for women and children of the lower class, many of whom were indentured servants, day laborers, and domestic workers. On this flotilla of self-absorption, self-sacrifice became a prevailing virtue during a crisis moment, and the powerful chose death that the powerless might receive life.” Reeder asks “Why?” and answers his own question: “...the undeniable influence of Christianity. The Christian virtue of self-sacrifice for the well-being of others and the biblical imperative for men to lay down their lives for women and children were chosen instead of self-preservation.” Other ships have sunk with great loss of life. The Lusitania was torpedoed by

a German U-boat on May 7, 1915, killing more than 1,100 with nearly 800 surviving, but that ship went down in just 18 minutes, while the Titanic took almost three hours to slip beneath the waters of the North Atlantic, thus giving the Titanic more time for real, as well as manufactured, drama. Since its demise, Titanic’s name has become a brand. Souvenir T-shirts and other tacky memorabilia are for sale. USA Today reports a $5 bill salvaged from the wreckage is up for auction. The reality, though, is that more than 1,500 people died when the ship sank. Branches of family trees were severed. Parents were lost to children and children who were lost never lived to be parents themselves. Titanic was a monument to the glory and presumed omnipotence of human ingenuity, which was also destroyed. In Titanic’s demise, acts of self-sacrifice that shattered stereotypes about “the rich” were revealed. Those stories would have made for a better film than the ones made. Though, to borrow from the Cameron film’s title song, their stories will “go on.” (Readers may e-mail Cal Thomas at tmseditors@tribune.com. )

Fleeing driver takes cop on wild ride HANOI, Vietnam (AP) — A Vietnamese traffic cop went on a wild ride in Hanoi, clinging to the windshield wipers of a moving bus for nearly a mile after the rogue driver tried to avoid a ticket, police said Friday. Traffic police 2nd Lt. Nguyen Manh Phan ordered the bus driver to pull over the 39-seat passenger coach

Monday, said a police officer in Ba Vi District outside Hanoi. The officer spoke on condition of anonymity, citing policy. The driver allegedly refused to show his paperwork and drove off — but not before Phan leaped onto the front, he added. The officer said the bus reached a top speed of about 31 miles per hour.

The Titanic departs April 10, 1912, from Southampton, England, on its maiden Atlantic voyage. Today is the 100th anniversary of the sinking of the Titanic, just five days after it left Southampton for New York.

Titanic’s sinking: Was it more than human folly? the atmosphere may have tricked the Titanic crew on a cloudless night. “This was not avoidable human error,” Maltin said in a telephone interview from London. “It’s just about air density difference.” It was a beautiful clear night and for a couple of days, there had been something strange going on in the air over the North Atlantic, reported by all sorts of ships, including the crew on Titanic, Maltin said. The unusually cold sea air caused light to bend abnormally downward, Maltin said. The Titanic’s first officer, William McMaster Murdoch, saw what he described as a “haze on the horizon, and that iceberg came right out of the haze,” Maltin said, quoting from the surviving second officer’s testimony. Other ships, including those rescuing survivors, reported similar strange visuals and had trouble navigating around the icebergs, he said. British meteorologists later monitored the site for those freaky thermal inversions and said 60 percent of the time they checked, the inversions were present, Maltin said. The same inversions could have made the Titanic’s rescue rockets appear lower in the sky, giving a rescue ship the impression that the Titanic was smaller and farther away, Maltin said. Physicists Donald Olson and Russell Doescher at Texas State University have another theory in Sky &Telescope magazine that fits nicely with Maltin’s. Olson — who often comes up with astronomical quirks linked to historical events — said that a few months earlier, the moon,

BY SETH BORENSTEIN Associated Press

WASHINGTON — After an entire century that included two high-profile government investigations and countless books and movies, we’re still debating what really caused the Titanic to hit an iceberg and sink on that crystal-clear chilly night. Maybe there’s more to blame than human folly and hubris. Maybe we can fault freak atmospheric conditions that caused a mirage or an even rarer astronomical event that sent icebergs into shipping lanes. Those are two of the newer theories being proposed by a Titanic author and a team of astronomers. But the effort to find natural causes that could have contributed to the sinking may also be a quest for an excuse — anything to avoid gazing critically into a mirror, say disaster experts and Titanic historians. New theories and research are important “but at its most basic what happened is they failed to heed warnings and they hit the iceberg because they were going too fast,” said James Delgado, director of maritime heritage at the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration. With today’s 100th anniversary of Titanic’s sinking, the interest in all things Titanic is steaming faster than the doomed cruise ship on its maiden voyage. One of the novel new theories says Titanic could have been the victim of a mirage that is similar to what people see in the desert. It’s the brainchild of Tim Maltin, a historian who has written three books about Titanic. The latest, an e-book titled “A Very Deceiving Night” emphasizes how

sun and Earth lined up in a way that added extra pull on Earth’s tides. The Earth was closer to the moon than it had been in 1,400 years. They based their work on historical and astronomical records and research in 1978 by a federal expert in tides. The unusual tides caused glaciers to calve icebergs off Greenland. Those southbound icebergs got stuck near Labrador and Newfoundland but then slowly moved south again, floating into the shipping currents just in time to greet the Titanic, the astronomers theorized. Maltin said the icebergs also added a snaking river of super-cold water that magnified the mirage effect. Tides and mirages may have happened, but blaming them for Titanic’s sinking “misses the boat,” said Lee Clarke, a Rutgers University disaster expert and author of the book “Worst Cases.” “The basic facts of Titanic are not in dispute: The boat was going too fast in dangerous waters,” Clarke said. If Titanic had stopped for the night because of ice like the British steamship Californian did, “tides and mirages wouldn’t have mattered.” On April 14, the day it hit the iceberg, the Titanic received seven heavy ice warnings, including one from the Californian less than an hour before the fateful collision. The message said: “We are stopped and surrounded by ice.” Titanic sent back a message that said “Shut up. We are busy.” Clarke said people keep looking for additional causes “because if it’s nature or God, then we’re off the hook, morally and practically.”

The park attracted 140,000 visitors last year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with about 65 percent coming from out-of-town and 35 percent living locally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is great considering that when RDC took over management of the park, the visitation averaged about 80 percent tourist and 20 percent local,â&#x20AC;? Giuntini said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of our goals was to increase local visitation at the park.â&#x20AC;? He said there is something offered for everyone at the park. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tourists love the Mississippi River Museum and the Riverwalk model. For the first-time visitor, the museum, Riverwalk and monorail offer one of the most unique experiences in the world,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;For the local visitor, special events and concerts bring them to the island.

Giuntini said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have people from all over the world come to Memphis to learn about and experience the mighty Mississippi River.

MHSAA fails to adopt change in tourney format The Associated Press

CLINTON — A Mississippi High School Activities Association’s proposal to change its state basketball tournament format has failed to muster enough votes for approval. The entire event will remain in Jackson, at least through next season. The current format, with two teams from the North and two from the South, will also remain. The proposal did not receive the required votes Thursday from its legislative branch to change the current postseason format. The proposal passed at the February meeting, but needed to pass a second time to become part of the 2013 handbook. This season, four teams — two each from the North and South — qualify for the state tournament. The MHSAA has proposed adding more teams to its state tournament format in all six classifications, meaning another venue would be needed in addition to Jackson’s Mississippi Coliseum.

Aggies match season high in runs BY H. LEE SMITH II lsmith@dailycorinthian.com

KOSSUTH -— One night after claiming their second straight Division 1-3A title, the Kossuth Aggies tied their season high in runs. Kossuth banged out 13 hits and won for the 16th time in 21 outings with 11-3 win over South Pontotoc. In other action South Pontotoc beat Alcorn Central 1410. Saturday’s win marked the sixth time the Aggies (16-5) have platted 10 or more runs. KHS tallied 11 runs three previous times this season, the last in a shutout win at Ripley on Tuesday. Cade Armstrong got the win to improve to 4-2.

John Mitchell, Jordan Brawner, Heath Wood, Tyler Nelms and Tyler Mercer recorded multiple hits with Mitchell’s three leading the way. David Gibson clubbed his team-leading fourth homer in the win. ■ In college action, Northeast swept Holmes to move into second place in the North Division. The Tigers (15-23, 10-7) opened with an 8-4 decision and followed with an 11-7 win. Taylor Bonifacio had a great day at the plate with six hits, including three doubles, a triple and a home run. Bonifacio had four hits in the second game, coming up a single short of the cycle.

Erin Frazier turned her newest sport into a scholarship. The Corinth High School senior signed a letter of intent Thursday to play volleyball at Wallace State Community College. The Hanceville, Ala., school has claimed 16 district championships and made 12 appearances in the National Tournament since adding the sport in 1989. Frazier starred in basketball as well as slow- and fast-pitch softball at Corinth. She had offers in softball or basketball from five other schools, but opted for volleyball. “I loved Wallace State and it’s close enough that I can still come home at times,” said Frazier. “It will be nice to figure out who I am playing only the one sport.” Frazier helped lead Corinth to a 2011-2 record and the Region 1 title during the fall. Corinth qualified for and won its first playoff match for the first time in the program’s three-year history. She was named the Maxpreps State Player of the Week for Aug. 22-28. The outside hitter/middle blocker posted 41 kills, 19 aces and 11 blocks to go along with nine digs and three assists over a 10-game stretch. Frazier almost didn’t play the new sport since it conflicted with the slowpitch softball season. After some coax-

QB battle focus of USM spring game The Associated Press

HATTIESBURG — Firstyear Southern Mississippi football coach Ellis Johnson isn’t quite prepared to anoint a starting quarterback. But junior Chris Campbell made a solid case for the job during the Golden Eagles’ spring football game on Saturday, completing 12 of 18 passes for 167 yards and a touchdown at Roberts Stadium. “So far, nobody’s really, really stepped up, but I would have to say that Chris has been a little bit more consistent

this spring,” said Johnson, who replaced Larry Fedora in December after Fedora took the North Carolina job. With sophomore Arsenio Favor sidelined with a knee injury, Campbell and redshirt freshman Ricky Lloyd took most of the snaps. The Golden Eagles are trying to replace Austin Davis, a fouryear starter who finished his career as the most accomplished quarterback in school history. Lloyd completed 14 of 28 passes for 199 yards. Campbell, a junior, led the offense on two touchdown

drives in the first half and led another in the third quarter. “If we had to play tomorrow, he’s the guy who’s got a little bit of an experience level and he would probably give us the least bad plays,” Johnson said. Campbell didn’t make many bad plays Saturday before an announced crowd of 2,585 at Roberts Stadium, where Southern Miss capped off the spring with a 75-miunte scrimmage that saw the offense score four touchdowns and two field goals. Though there’s still some uncertainty at quarterback,

the Golden Eagles have several other starters returning from a team that won 11 games and the Conference USA championship last season. Linebacker Jamie Collins led the defensive effort with four sacks. Senior safety Martez Thompson and freshman safety DaQuinton Dean each had an interception off redshirt freshman quarterback Cole Weeks. Campbell said it took everyone time to get on the same page this spring while working through the differences in Johnson’s offensive system.

Social network helps college coaches find players The Associated Press

OMAHA, Neb. — College baseball coaches have looked nearly everywhere for players. Now, they can try somewhere else — cyberspace. From behind their desktop computers, or on their mobile devices, coaches are expanding their pool of potential recruits on a networking site akin to the popular LinkedIn for business professionals. A coach in need of a powerhitting first baseman, a fleet outfielder or a hard-throwing left-hander can go to Field-

Level and put out the word. Chances are that within hours he’ll hear back from high school and junior-college coaches eager to play matchmaker. FieldLevel has gone from the brainchild of a couple of University of Southern California undergraduates five years ago to a tool that has gained popularity since winning “Best in Show” at the American Baseball Coaches Association trade show in January. For a decade there have been sites and software that

help coaches organize their recruiting efforts and keep track of prospects. FieldLevel is the first site where coaches can connect and help each other out. Appalachian State recruiting coordinator Josh Jordan sent out a message this spring that he’s desperate for righthanded pitchers who can throw at least 89 mph. Within 48 hours, Jordan had received profiles of 14 junior-college righties, and he said about seven are legitimate prospects. “I would have never known

about them otherwise,” Jordan said. “We’ve got budget constraints like most everybody. It’s not like we have scouts and national crosscheckers who can get on a plane and find guys in California.” Santa Monica, Calif.-based FieldLevel has signed up almost 1,000 coaches from colleges, high school and club programs since launching in July 2008. That includes coaches from more than 260 junior colleges and 100-plus Division I programs.

FRAZIER CONTINUED FROM 8A

ing from Head Coach Erika McCoy, the then-sophomore gave it a shot. “I ended up loving it at the end of the day,” said Frazier. “I like the high pace and it’s unlike other sports. In most sports you have to play under control, but in volleyball you can hit it as hard as you can and still show some control.” During her final campaign Frazier recorded 295 kills, 93 aces, 81 blocks, 167 digs and seven assists. While averaging 3.7 kills per game she posted double figures in 15 different matches. Frazier also had seven matches were she posted double digits in digs, including 20 in a fourgame set against University School of Jackson (Tenn.). Frazier has been a starter in both slow- and fast-pitch softball since her seventh-grade year. She was named the Division 1-3A Defensive Player of the Year following the 2010 and 2011 seasons.

Minor dominates for Braves The Associated Press

ATLANTA — For the first time this season, the Braves won a game on the strength of their starting pitching. Atlanta manager Fredi Gonzalez suggested it won’t be the last time Mike Minor dominates a game. Minor pitched two-hit ball into the eighth inning to give Atlanta’s rotation a lift and the Braves survived a ninth-inning scare to beat Shaun Marcum and the Milwaukee Brewers 2-1 on Saturday night for their fourth straight victory. “He keeps getting better and better,” said Gonzalez of Minor. “I can’t wait to see the next start.” Craig Kimbrel pitched out of a bases-loaded jam with one out in the ninth, striking out pinch-hitter George Kottaras and Mat Gamel for his fourth save.

Minor (1-1) recorded 18 consecutive outs after hitting Corey Hart with a pitch to open the second inning. The left-hander did not allow an earned run in 7 1-3 innings, becoming the first Braves starter this season to get an out after the fifth. He

struck out four and walked one in the longest start of his career. “It was a lot of fun just because I got past the fifth inning and helped the team out, helped the bullpen out,” Minor said. The Braves have won four straight.

Photographer donates to group’s Disney trip BY BOBBY J. SMITH bjsmith@dailycorinthian.com

A local photography enthusiast has used his art to help finance a summer vacation to the Magic Kingdom for a group of special needs children. Corinth photographer Bill Avery recently presented over $500 to Havis Hurley’s effort to take almost 50 special needs kids from Corinth and Alcorn County and their chaperones on a five-day trip to Disney World this summer. Avery and pictorial partner Lisa Wilbanks — known for their photo exhibits at the Corinth library — gathered the cash by holding an Easter photo shoot fundraiser in which the photographers shot Easter-themed family and children’s portraits and portraits with the Easter Bunny. Hurley, a bus driver for

special needs kids for the Corinth School District, set the initial fundraising goal for $25,000. This would cover motel rooms, Disney World tickets and transportation. Avery and Wilbanks’ effort will help provide food vouchers for the children. The driver said he got the idea for the Disney adventure coming back from the Memphis Zoo on a previous year’s summer trip for the special kids. The trip to the zoo was fun, no doubt, but Hurley wanted to do something even better for his passengers. The bus driver spoke highly of the community’s effort to turn the Disney dream into a reality. “The community has really been behind this trip,” Hurley said. Avery couldn’t agree more. “So much of the citizenship banded together to

help,” he said. Avery gave much of the credit for the success of his photo fundraiser to J.L. Aldridge of the local Aldridge Real Estate for donating an empty house for Avery to use as a studio for the duration of the project. “Aldridge really jumped on the bandwagon with us,” Avery emphasized. He also credited the people who paid to have their portraits made. “The people paid knowing where their money was going. It was really their donations. The pictures were my way of giving them something in return,” Avery said. An exhibit featuring a selection of Avery’s Easter fundraiser photos will be on display through May at the Corinth Library. Hurley and the kids plan to enjoy their Disney World trip from May 26 to June 1.

April 2012 has been designated as National Safe Digging Month and Corinth Gas & Water Department is dedicated to increasing the awareness of safe digging practices in our city and county. All persons preparing to dig must call Mississippi 811 two days prior to the beginning of any work. Underground facilities will be marked using the color code system and then work may proceed. Every digging job requires a call whether you are planning to do it yourself or hiring a professional. The depth of utility lines varies and there may be multiple utility lines in a common area. Digging without calling can disrupt service to an entire neighborhood, harm you and those around you and potentially result in fines and repair costs. Calling 811 before every digging job gets your underground utility lines marked for free and helps prevent undesired consequences.

A Celebration of the Visual Arts

Submitted photos

Thirty-four of Mrs. Julie Pittman’s Art I students recently participated in LINK’s Arts Infusion Program, “A Celebration of the Visual Arts.” LINK encourages art instructors to have their older art students teach 3rd graders and guide the children through an art lesson.

Persuasive letter assignment Local business owner, national company surprise Glendale Elementary sixth-grader with gift BY STEVE BEAVERS sbeavers@dailycorinthian.com

GLEN — It is all how you ask. Glendale Elementary School sixth grader Olivia Smith found that surprisingly true. Smith wrote the Vera Bradley company as part of a persuasive letter assignment. The youngster was asking for one of the company’s Metropolitan bags that comes in Island Bloom. Her letter did the trick as Ginger’s owner Ginger Stockton and store Vera Bradley representative Heather Kuykendall delivered the bag in person earlier this week. “I saw it in a magazine and was hoping to get it,” said the smiling sixth grader. “I am going to use it a lot and might even use it as my backpack.” Smith didn’t know what to think when she was called to the library along with teacher Linda Johnson. “I was wondering why my teacher was coming?” she said. Smith worked hard to get her letter perfect during the assignment, according to her teacher. “Olivia strives for the best ... she wants things to be

To Whom It May Concern I am speaking to you today because I would like one of your bags. This bag is called the Metropolitan, and I love it in Island Bloom. I bet you are wondering why I am saying this. I was hoping you would send me one. Maybe my reasons will persuade you to give me this lovely bag. First I would to say that next year I am hoping to get in to Beta Club. I am wanting this because I have all A’s and B’s this year. All you need is good grades and a good attitude to get in. If I get in, my sister tells me that you get to go on lots of trips (she would know because she was in it). If we go on lots of trips, I will need a good, lasting bag to carry as a tag along. This way I

correct,” said Johnson. The fun assignment happened about the same time as Stockton and Kuykendall attended a Vera Bradley premiere. Ginger’s was one of three stores selected to have dinner at the home of company owner Barbara Baekgaard, who autographed Smith’s letter and sent it back to her. “This was meant to be,” said Stockton. “This proves that hard work always pays off.” Stockton and Kuykendall were both humbled by the letter. “I thought she did a great job writing the letter and I want to commend her teacher also,” said the store owner. “As a store owner, you really value these types of things and I think Barb (Vera Bradley owner) was very touched by her desire to have the piece.” “It was very touching,” added Kuykendall. “You can tell she works really hard.” Smith won’t forget her first letter. “We did a practice letter before, but didn’t send them out,” she said. “This is something she will remember forever and I feel she really merited the piece,” added Stockton.

Olivia Smith received her desired bag after writing a letter as part of a class assignment.

will have easy access to my notebook, pens and pencils, books, and snacks. My second reason is that it would make a great laptop case. I don’t have one yet because I can’t find one I like. Also I have to pay for it, my mom says. Well, I’m eleven years old. I never have enough money to purchase a laptop case. Finally, my last reason is if I get this bag, I would have a small tote to carry clothes to a friend’s house. I could also include with my clothes, my makeup, nail polish, and my nineteen chapter book. I have trusted your company for ever and will always trust it. I hope you will consider sending me one of the bags. Sincerely, Olivia Smith

Golden sawmill had lasting impact on Mississippi (A study of the Golden Sawmill, written by Harold R. Russell. This is part 2 of a two-part series.) The mill was located in Golden where the E.R. Warren home is now. The company store was located in the edge of the present Golden to Red Bay highway. On the 5th of February 1920, the Golden Sawmill Company purchased the mill site from W.H. Patters. The land lay around the ICRR. On this acreage the company set up the sawmill building, planer mill, edger, dry-kill, storage area for equipment, and dwelling houses for the employees as well as the company store. The formation of the company may have begun in 1919 but the actions of the company and land purchases began in 1920. It seems that a man by

the name of H.M. Y o u n g was in the grave b u s i ness in RaNae Corinth in Vaughn the early 1900s. He Historically began to Speaking purchase l a r g e tracts of land from Dee Luther, Minnesota and Mr. Franklin Webber was from Boston, Massachusetts. They put together a large number of lands in Northeast Itawamba County and surround areas in Tishomingo and Prentiss Counties in Mississippi and Franklin County, Alabama. These men had a lot of dealing in the stave business from my talking to some older people. In the early 1900

staves were a big business in this part of the country. On April 1, 1919, Webber and Coffin sold a large sum of land to Oscar Copeland to the amount of 10,146 acres for a little more than half a million dollars. Now I haven’t been able to tie Oscar Cleveland with the Golden Sawmill. He has not been named as a part of the company but he had some ties through the land transactions. I do know that he furnished the lumber to build the church at Salem in later years, and the church was built from clear pine lumber without any knots inside and out. I remember this from talking to the late D.W. Ashley. We found on the 8th of September 1920, a bill of sale for lumber, that was recorded in the courthouse in Iuka. This bill

of sale is for yellow pine shipped to Chicago Lumber and Coal Company for 860,187 board feet. It seems that the Golden Sawmill was buying lumber from a number of peckerwood mills located in and around Golden, Mississippi. The names of some are L.R. and A.T. Davis at Bay Springs, S.J. Davis at Dennis, and Parker Sawmill. In this bill of sale, the Golden Sawmill is known as the Young Curtis Company and the partnership of Hubert F. Young, W.D. Henry and Louis Werner Sawmill Company at St. Louis, Missouri. In 1921 the Golden Sawmill Company purchased a Type B Shay geared locomotive rated to weigh 42 tons in working order, with the original builder number of 2062. The purchase price for the

locomotive was $7,000 and was bought from the Birmingham Rail Locomotive Company. There is a statement of the fact that this locomotive will be used for logging operations in Golden, Mississippi and not to be moved. On April 25th of 1924, James Copeland as special commissioner for the Copeland Estate on behalf of Mrs. Gertrude Clements sold to Herbert F. Young all the lands except the Copeland home place on the Ridge Road. Mrs. Clements purchased the home pace for $15,000.00. Mr. Herbert F. Young purchased the remaining property for $409,750.00. Mr. Jerry Martin stated in his book that the depression was taking its toll. The Golden Sawmill shut down in 1933 and completely closed in 1934

according to the late Mr. E. R. Warren. The mill was sold at auction. Parts were purchased from different places. Some went to Tennessee and Alabama. This caused serious blows to the economy of Northeast Mississippi. The 1930 census showed the population of Golden was 569. By 1940 the population had dropped to 340 people. After the depression, the Golden Sawmill lands were sold. The land sold for $200 to $500 per acre. Dr. D.D. Johnson of Belmont purchased a large number of acres from the failed company.

Battery Powell was site of intense fighting during Civil War BY TOM PARSON NPS Ranger

Photo compliments of Dr. Bill Jackson of Corinth

For years this Civil War era photograph was believed to be an interior view of Battery Robinett near today’s Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center. Detailed drawings of Corinth’s earthworks have recently proved it to be Battery Powell.

(Editor’s Note — This the fifth of a nine-part series of frequently overlooked Civil War era sites in and around Corinth.) In an earlier article of this series (the one about Battery F) we talked about what a “battery” meant in Civil War lingo, so we won’t explain that again. For those of you who didn’t read the paper that day, for our purposes a battery is a fort built to be used by artillery. Once upon a time there were 13 such forts around Corinth. Today, we’re down to just one. In the summer of 1862, the Union had control of Corinth and the post commander, Brig. Gen. William Rosecrans, had the job of defending it. He could have used the “Beauregard Line” of earthworks built by the Confederates but he didn’t have near enough men to defend such a long line. Rosecrans, or “Old Rosy” as he was known, asked his boss, Maj. Gen. Ulysses S. Grant, if he could make a new defensive line closer to the railroad junction, one which could be held with fewer men. Grant said yes and the result was the “Rosecrans Line,” a series of seven forts all within a mile of the railroad depot. Each of the forts of the Rosecrans Line defended a key road leading into town, and was named for an officer stationed in Corinth at that time. The last fort to go up was on the north side of town guarding the road to Purdy, Tennessee. Battery Powell was named for Maj. Albert M. Powell, a Maryland native and graduate of the West Point class of 1860. He was the chief of artillery in “Old Rosy’s” Third Division and somebody tried to get on Powell’s good side by naming a fort after him. During the second day of the Battle of Corinth, Oct. 4, 1862, Battery Powell was in the cross hairs of the opening Confederate attack. Eleven pieces of field artillery were placed in and on either side of the fort, with thousands of Federal infantry in support. As strong as the position was, it should have been a safe place to be. It was not. At 10 a.m. a full division of Confederates charged across the field and captured Battery Powell as well as all of the artillery and quite a few astonished boys in blue. The fighting was intense. Just to the right of the fort the 6th Missouri Infantry attacked the Union lines and the flag

bearer, a fellow named William Huff, was shot nine times but never let go of his flag. The Confederate victory was fleeting. No more than 15 minutes after losing the fort, the Federals counter-attacked and retook Battery Powell. There had been no time for the Confederates to use the captured artillery, nor was there any chance to haul the trophies away. All eleven cannon were recaptured and several of the pieces were then used to fire on the retreating Southerners. Just before the fighting commenced, a Union soldier had noticed a local woman and her child on the porch of a nearby house. There was no time to send them away and it was obvious there would be heavy fighting around the home. The compassionate soldier lowered the mother and child down a nearby well and covered the opening with a mattress. When the fighting was over the captives were returned. I’ve often wondered what would have become of them if the soldier had been killed. Did anyone else know they were there? So whatever happened to Major Albert Powell? He survived the war, finishing out the conflict as a Lt. Colonel in command of the artillery of the Union 17th Army Corps. After the war he was stationed in the Dakota Territory and saw plenty of action fighting the Indians on the western frontier. His end came in 1868, not to arrows or bullets, but as the result of a fall from his horse. Battery Powell no longer exists. All that remains is a single photograph, taken from inside the fort a day or two after the battle. There’s little in the photo to indicate the ferocity of the fighting other than a few shattered and twisted trees. Today the site of the fort is under a local home, though a visitor to the location can easily figure out where the fort stood. Before you go looking for Battery Powell, come by the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center for a map that will lead you to the fort’s location. Inside the visitor center take a few moments in the artifact room and have a look at the battle flag of the 6th Missouri Infantry. This is the same flag carried during the battle and is still stained with the blood of the color bearer, William Huff. The center, located at 501 West Linden Street, is open daily from 8:00 to 5:00 and can be reached at 662-287-9273.

Turkey hunting isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just an early morning thing Over the years Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known several turkey hunters who would hunt only during the early morning hours and call it quits. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d go hoping to cash in on the morning gobble bonanza and leave once the birds became tight-beaked, usually around 8 a.m. Turkeys, however, can be taken at any time during the day. They donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have a time schedule as most of us do, and their mood is subject to change on a whim just like the weather seems to go from one extreme to the next these days. If you talk to veteran hunters, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re likely to

tell you theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve t a k e n a good many of their birds between David 10 a.m. Green and noon, or thereOutdoors abouts. By then, hens have left their boyfriends to attend their nests. The toms get lonely and, subsequently, become more susceptible to falling prey to the hunterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s well-spoken hen chatter. The lull period between the early morningâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s frantic gobbling activity and late morning can be a tough time to hunt, but a

gobbler can still be taken. It requires patience, confidence in the area youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve chosen, and a clever approach to calling. Start out the calling sequences with soft clucks and purrs just in case a bird is close by, and if thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no response, quickly pump up the volume and excitement level. Often, just when you think nothing is going to happen, the silence of the woods is broken by the booming gobble of old tom. And when a bird does get fired up during this period, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll usually cut off every call thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s made with a gobble and come in a hurry. Even though turkeys

are typically far less vocal in mid to late afternoon, every once in a while, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find a hot one that can be worked into a frenzy and bagged. A good place to look for a gobbler in a strutting mood in the afternoon would be the same general area close to where you found him on the roost earlier that morning. The Eastern turkey doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t travel too far from their roost in a dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time, and thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good chance his strut zone is nearby. Turkeys strut in the same general area year after year, and even if one gets shot, another one will usually take its place. There is an advantage

to hunting in the afternoon, even if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re unable to get a bead on tom. Turkeys are fairly easy to pattern if left undisturbed. By observing while keeping your presence unknown, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to figure out where to be positioned before first light on the next morning. And by setting up close to the birdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roost, odds are good it will come over to investigate a call even if there are hens nearby. Turkey hunting is not just an early morning thing, though it does provide some of the most exciting hunting. But, more times than most hunters care to admit, the hunt does not always go as

Tips for preparing a successful dove field BY JAMES L. CUMMINGS Conservation Corner

Most hunters know the mourning dove is the most popular game bird in Mississippi. Dove season begins another year of hunting. Also, it is a big social event. Many landowners take pride in preparing dove fields for their own enjoyment and for their friends hunting. In order to have a successful dove field, one must properly prepare it. A successful dove field may be relatively small. A 10- to 40-acre field is very common. Small fields scattered throughout an area will provide better hunting than a large field. The first consideration in planning a dove field is soil type. It can vary from sand to clay, but it must be welldrained. Location is another item of concern. Doves

like to feed and drink as close to their roost as possible. By locating a dove field adjacent to or close to roost trees, a source of water or near other grain fields, one can establish a field that is attractive to a lot of doves. Field preparation is a must. First, they must be disked. It is most important that the field be kept clean. If not, doves will not be able to find seeds and hunts will be unsuccessful. Next, one must control weeds. For recommendations relating to pre-emerge herbicide for this purpose, contact you local county agent. The type of seed to use is a small, black sunflower called Peredovik. It can be obtained at most seed supply houses. It is important to use this type of seed. Normal sunflower seed is too large. Planting should occur between March 15

and April 15; however, one can plant as late as June 20. A good, firm seed bed must be prepared as for cotton or corn. Plant 3 to 4 pounds of seed per acre on 40-inch rows using cotton plates, with 7 inches of spacing in the row. A stand that is too thick will produce small heads and weak stalks and a stand that is planted too thin will produce large heads that fall over and are slow to dry. Cover the seed with 1 to 2 inches of soil. It takes between 100 to 130 days for sunflowers to mature. After maturing, they will yield approximately 1,200 pounds of seed per acre. Cultivation is optional, but post-directed chemicals are a must. Contact you local agent for recommendations relating to post-emerge herbicide applications. After the plants

         

 

are 6 inches tall, cultivation may be needed to bury weeds. Do not cultivate after the plants are 12 inches in height. The next step is preparing the field for the hunt. Approximately two weeks before the season opens, cut several trails through the field. However, leave the majority of the sunflowers standing to extend the life of the crop and provide cover for hunters. Normally, blackbirds and starlings feeding on mature seed heads will scatter enough seed to attract doves. (James L. Cummins is executive director of Wildlife Mississippi, a non-profit, conservation organization founded to conserve, restore and enhance fish, wildlife and plant resources throughout Mississippi.

planned - leaving behind a feeling of frustration. Those feelings can be put to rest if you can manage to stay afield for the long haul. Use what the turkeys taught you that morning to formulate a strategy and stick with it so you can turn the trick on tom later in the day.

State crappie fishing outlook looks good For the Daily Corinthian

JACKSON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mississippi Department of Wildlife, Fisheries, and Parks (MDWFP) fisheries biologists are optimistic about fishing in 2012 on north Mississippiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Corps of Engineersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; flood control reservoirs (FCRs). Arkabutla, Sardis, Enid, and Grenada Lakes are some of the best crappie waters in the country, boosting local economies as they support about 1.5 million hours of fishing yearly. Fall 2011 sampling by MDWFP found good white crappie spawns from 2009 through 2011.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The big 2009 spawn averaged just under 12 inches, but many were legal size. Black crappie from a huge 2008 spawn also averaged about 12 inches,â&#x20AC;? according to MDWFP Fisheries Biologist Keith Meals. Abundant small crappie in the FCRs are young, not stunted.

Healthy relationships should have transparent credit histories BY LINDA BREAZEALE MSU Ag Communications

MISSISSIPPI STATE — Couples who want to avoid one of the most common argument topics should begin their relationships with total financial honesty. Joe Wilmoth, assistant professor of human development and family studies in Mississippi State University’s School

of Human Sciences, said many surveys reveal that finances are the No. 1 source of conflict in a marriage. “Couples often enter a marriage with very different ideas about what money means and how it should be used,” he said. “One person may be frugal and save for a rainy day, while the other may want to spend money now

in case it’s not there later. They also can have very different priorities, with one person wanting a nice car and the other wanting nice furniture.” While money can be a source of conflict, Wilmoth said couples who communicate openly, clearly and respectfully often find that these conflicts are opportunities to grow closer.

“Create a climate where each partner feels secure -- assured that both people want to work together to make the relationship stronger and more satisfying,” he said. “Conflicts over money might actually be about deeper issues, such as being in control or feeling insecure about the future or about the relationship.”

2012

Sheri Worthy, a professor of consumer economics in the School of Human Sciences, said before partners get to know one another financially, they each should first know themselves. “Couples should take advantage of free credit reports, available from sources such as AnnualCreditReport.com, and find out about debts, as-

sets, liabilities and net worth,” Worthy said. “Past behavior is often a good predictor of future behavior.” Worthy said taking time to draw up a budget together is a good way to learn each other’s spending style, and an opportunity discuss short-term and long-term goals, and decide how to share responsibility for bills.

Thoughtful gifts convey proper thanks DEAR ABBY: I’m confused about the protocol in thanking or repaying someone after staying several nights at their home. My feeling is, if you’re staying with people, the nicest way to thank them for their hospitality is to pay for most, if not all, the lunches and dinners you share with them when you dine out. That way, you lessen the monetary burden of your visit, and it gives you a chance to say “thank you” for the use of their home. Some visitors seem to think that when they come to your home, you should not only put them up, but also pay for all their activities while you show them your town. What is correct? Or is it a matter of preference? -VISITING FROM PHOENIX DEAR VISITING: According to Emily Post,

when a guest stays overnight, a nice bottle of wine would be a proper Abigail gift if you Van Buren k n o w your hosts Dear Abby drink and their preference. If there are children in the household, a game they can all enjoy or candy might be nice. If you will be staying longer, she suggests a picture frame with a photo taken during your visit sent afterward, a houseplant in a decorative pot, hand towels or beach towels. And I agree with you that treating your host(s) to a nice dinner during your visit would be gracious and thoughtful. DEAR ABBY: One of my best supervisors is in a same-sex relationship.

She and her partner are raising three wonderful children from previous marriages. I have introduced them to my husband at the office as well as work-related social events. He says he “hates” them because he believes their relationship broke up their marriages and it’s wrong to raise their children this way. When he encounters them he refuses to acknowledge them and will snarl when near them. Neither of them have done anything to deserve this treatment, and it makes me embarrassed and ashamed of him. I’ve tried to reason with him -- nothing works. I told him flat out he can have his opinions, but I expect him to treat them with respect. I’m to the point where I have to attend work-related functions alone and

not allow him to come to my office. That’s one solution, but I’m still upset about his attitude in general. Any advice would be greatly appreciated. -UPSET IN TEXAS DEAR UPSET: I suspect that your husband’s reason for “hating” your supervisor has less to do with the fact that she and her partner ended their marriages, and more to do with knee-jerk homophobia. Children who are raised in happy homes do better than those who are raised in a household filled with unresolved tension. I can’t change your husband’s attitude, and neither can you. Only he can do that, but enlightenment isn’t likely to be achieved until he recognizes a need for it. P.S. His manners are atrocious, and you’re right to keep him apart from your work environ-

ment. DEAR ABBY: Due to a health problem that caused some of my hair to break and fall out, I have recently begun wearing a wig. At a social function a woman who was not a friend of mine approached me and asked if I was wearing a hairpiece. How could I respond to such a rude question without admitting that I am wearing a wig? -- STUMPED IN PENNSYLVANIA DEAR STUMPED: Try this: “I’ll forgive you for asking that question if you’ll forgive me for not answering.” (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips.

Recently, 34 of Julie Pittman’s 9th and 10th grade Art I students participated in LINK’s Arts Infusion Program, “A Celebration of the Visual Arts.” LINK encourages art instructors to have their older art students teach 3rd graders and guide the children through an art lesson. Thanks to the cooperation of the principals and teachers this is always a huge success. LINK graciously paid for the materials used and gave all participating art departments $150 stipends to benefit their programs. The art project completed by the ACES students was a lesson on pointillism. It was a fantastic experience for all the students involved.

Takin a look at 5 classic movies set in cabins BY CHRISTY LEMIRE AP Movie Critic

LOS ANGELES — “The Cabin in the Woods” pays homage to a very specific kind of horror movie — young people getting picked off one by one in the middle of nowhere — while simultaneously upending those films’ conventions. Five friends go to a cabin in the woods. Bad things start happening. But there’s way more going on than meets the eye. Here are five other movies set in cabins that aren’t nearly as cozy as their accommodations may seem. Try not to get too claustrophobic: ■ “Friday the 13th” (1980): No place is safe at Camp Crystal Lake, which reopens decades after the drowning death

of a boy named Jason and a pair of murders — not the water, not the woods and definitely not the cabins. No matter where you go, there’s the threat of an omnipresent, unstoppable killer. The title alone is synonymous with a specific, influential era in slasher franchises along with “Halloween,” and Sean S. Cunningham’s original film went on to inspire way too many sequels. This first one has some clever kills, though, as the nubile young camp counselors fall one at a time to this bloodthirsty machine. A young Kevin Bacon gets it in a particularly creative way. ■ “The Evil Dead” (1981): As in the film that inspired this list, five friends go to a cabin in the

woods. Bad things start happening. Sam Raimi put himself on the map with his low-budget feature debut, a film that’s as darkly funny as it is seriously gory. And when he returned to horror with the cheeky “Drag Me to Hell” after making the “Spider-Man” trilogy, it felt as if he was coming back to the genre he truly loved but with all the new high-tech tricks he’d picked up along the way. The victims here get theirs after playing a taped series of incantations that bring to life some long-dormant demons. It’s hugely influential stylistically, spawned a couple of sequels and introduced the world to his old high school friend, the lovable goofball Bruce Campbell.

■ “Cabin Fever” (2002): Five more friends go to a cabin in the woods. More bad things start happening. But writer-director Eli Roth put his own spin on this familiar premise by having his victims get torn about in gnarly fashion by a flesh-eating virus, and with his feature debut he established himself as a filmmaker with both a deep love and knowledge of the past and a distinctive voice all his own. I will never forget seeing this at a midnight showing at the Alamo Drafthouse during the South by Southwest film festival in 2003. The place was packed and the audience went absolutely nuts, screaming and laughing in all the right places and afterward giving Roth a well-deserved

and deafening ovation. ■ “Meatballs” (1979): We return to summer camp for one of the classics of the ’80s raunchy sex comedy era and the first pairing of Bill Murray with director Ivan Reitman (they would reteam for “Stripes” and both “Ghostbusters” movies). Here, Murray began to forge his slyly subversive, slightly off-kilter screen persona as Tripper, the head counselor at the less-than-stellar Camp Northstar. Probably everything you need to know about this guy can be summed up in his mantra: “It just doesn’t matter.” There’s plenty of slapstick and sultry teenage girls, but there’s some sweetness amid the hijinks, too. ■ “Little Darlings”

(1980): This movie seemed so racy when it came out. Tatum O’Neal vs. Kristy McNichol — and one of them may or may not have had sex with Armand Assante! It’s too much to handle when you’re 8, and it probably couldn’t get made today. O’Neal and McNichol star as two 15-year-old girls, one rich and one poor, who compete to see who can lose her virginity first one summer at Camp Little Wolf. The film is also notable as an early role for a young, feathered-haired Matt Dillon, who plays McNichol’s target. It’s probably not very good in retrospect, but I do recall that it had an honesty about it that was provocative, especially in such a frivolous setting.

‘Dateline NBC’ series puts parental maxims to a tough test BY DAVID BAUDER AP Television Writer

NEW YORK — Correspondent Natalie Morales ended up in tears when she put herself and her 8-year-old son through the same parenting test that “Dateline NBC” is subjecting others to for a series that starts today. Using hidden cameras and actors, the network set up scenarios to see if kids really follow their parents’ instructions to avoid strangers, don’t get into a car with a drunk driver or don’t cheat. The results will probably depress you. Time and again, children gave their names and addresses to a “stranger” who had taken their picture and talked

about putting them on TV. Promised free ice cream, they climbed into a van driven by an actor who could easily close the door on them and speed away. Parents watched it all on monitors nearby. “I would have lost my money if I put a bet on it,” one cringing parent said after watching a youngster climb into a car with an actor pretending to be drunk behind the wheel. For four consecutive Sunday nights, “Dateline NBC” will show the scenarios, which also test whether kids would cheat or discriminate if given the opportunity. NBC hopes parents and children watch the programs together and discuss them, said Liz Cole,

executive producer of “Dateline.” Four mothers who work at “Dateline” came up with the idea, an outgrowth of a show on bullying that aired last year. Not “news” in the strict sense, these types of shows tend to do well for newsmagazines: ABC’s “What Would You Do” series on “Primetime,” which sets up various social experiments, is particularly popular among younger viewers, which news shows have trouble reaching. “It’s reality TV at its best,” Morales said, “because these are truly teachable moments.” During the special on driving, several teenagers swear to their parents

Horoscopes Sunday, April 15, 2012 BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Creators Syndicate

Every year, Earth passes between Saturn and the sun, which we call a sun-Saturn opposition. The time around this opposition is the very best time to view Saturn because it’s closest to Earth and brightest in the sky. You’ll also feel your life lessons strongly as Saturn, looms nigh. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Do the ends justify the means? Ethical matters will arise. Everyone has a different idea about where the line is and who has crossed it. You don’t have to draw a conclusion on the matter just yet. Think it over. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). The Golden Rule only works well if what you want “done unto you” is the same thing the “other” in question would prefer. Better to find out what that person really wants first. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When you spend time with your friend, what happens is more than conversation. There’s a connection that goes much deeper than words. You rely on your loved ones, and they rely on you. CANCER (June 22-July 22). The simplest way to get what you want is to ask for it. Just because it’s simple doesn’t mean it’s easy. To ask, you have to risk rejection. But if you don’t ask, you risk more than that. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You will be keenly aware of your need for relationships with substance, and you’ll be drawn to deep thinkers. It won’t take much to start up an open and meaningful dialogue. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). You’ll be in a funny kind of mood. You may

joke in a borderline appropriate way or issue a dare. You’ll use the element of surprise. Your humor works because it’s unexpected — and also because you’re hilarious. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). You usually like to consider every choice available to you. However, you’ll currently be in an uncharacteristically decisive mood, and once you make a decision, you’re not likely to back down, reverse it or change it. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). Life will bring you superfluous ingredients. With so many choices, it may be challenging to stick to the recipe. But if you do, you’ll love what you accomplish with simply a plan and the patience to follow each step. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You’ll be looking for opinions to guide your next move. You’re not likely to trust advertisers or critics unless you know them personally. Friends will give you your best leads. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19). You’ll finally get the chance to relax. As your sign mate Henry Miller wrote: “Our own physical body possesses a wisdom which we who inhabit the body lack.” AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18). You’re powerful, and you’ll walk a fine line between being influential and being manipulative. Manipulation is when you trick someone into wanting what you’d like them to want and make them believe it was their idea all along. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Before you invent new methods to attain your goals, make sure you’ve given the old ones a try. The action that will be most effective may also be so obvious that it’s easy to miss.

Cryptoquip

that they never text or talk on their cellphones when behind the wheel. Their cars were equipped with cameras for a few months, and even though they knew they were being watched, most youngsters exhibited the behavior they said they would never do. The teens were also set up with actors who pretended to be drunk or high on drugs. Despite the doubt on many faces, most let the actor grab the keys and get behind the wheel. It’s the power of peer pressure; too many youngsters go along with the crowd unless someone is strong enough to take a stand. In the “Dateline” episode, a girl whose un-

cle was killed in a drunk driving accident was the strong one. Parents need to be persistent and specific with their instructions, the “Dateline” experts said, and be mindful of their own behavior. If you don’t want your children to text and drive, don’t do it yourself. “We’ve all had that moment when kids are throwing back what you should or shouldn’t do to your face,” Morales said. Aside from not getting into vans or giving out personal information to strangers, one tip “Dateline” offers regarding strangers is for children to stand up and look straight into the person’s eyes. Confidence could

scare away someone looking to prey on a vulnerable person. Watching their children via the hidden cameras is frequently nerve-racking and emotional. “Dateline” dials up the drama, with Morales saying it “could be their worst parenting nightmare or their proudest moment.” She doesn’t shy away from the experience herself, setting up her son Josh in the experiment with the actor driving the ice cream truck. “It’s hard for me to watch,” she said, before the tears flowed. Did she cry because her son had learned his lessons well or forgot them? That’s a “Dateline NBC” mystery to be revealed today.
