Corinth OKs $16.9 million treatment plant improvements BY JEBB JOHNSTON email@example.com
The Corinth Board of Aldermen on Tuesday accepted a construction bid for renovation and upgrade of the city’s wastewater treatment plant. Work is tentatively set to begin June 4. The low bidder is Max Foote Construction of Mandeville, La., at $16.944 million. An upgrade to the 25-year-old plant has been discussed for a number of years. An engineering study was commissioned in 2004, when the city was advised that the facility was nearing the end a normal treatment plant life span. Funding for the project will come from the state revolving fund loan program and a forthcoming sewer rate increase to be considered by the board. Specifics of the rate adjustment are yet to be determined. Jack Farmer of Cook Coggin Engineers said the plant’s capacity will increase from 4.7 million gallons to 6 million gallons daily. “All of these improvements will be done on the existing wastewater treatment facility site, part of which is on the north side of Harper Road and part of it is on the south side,” said Farmer. The city is required by the Mississippi Department of Environmental Quality to have the upgraded plant in operation in 2013. With a 600-day contract, construction is expected to take about 20 months. “With the city’s last permit renewal, the city was issued an order to relocate its discharge from Elam Creek, which is the creek that’s adjacent to the east side of the property, and to discharge into the Tuscumbia River, which is south of town,” said Farmer. “Part of the project that will accomplish that

United Way banquet honors those who give BY BOBBY J. SMITH firstname.lastname@example.org
The United Way of Corinth & Alcorn County held its 24th Annual United Way Thanks Banquet on Tuesday. The event was a chance for the non-profit charitable organization to honor businesses, organizations and individuals that help support the United Way’s efforts to improve the community. “Tonight’s meeting is about recognizing the many people and businesses that help make United Way of Corinth & Alcorn County a success,” said Reece
Terry, President of the local United Way. “Without the unselfish commitment of our contributors both large and small it would be impossible to fund the many agencies that help meet the needs in Corinth and Alcorn County.” Before the awards presentation portion of the banquet, three individuals stepped to the podium to express their thanks for the support given by United Way. Gail Stables discussed her experiences in 4-H Club — a United Way supported organization — and encouraged young people to get involved with 4-H or other
community groups. “There are many benefits to getting involved,” Stables said. “It provides so many opportunities for young people today.” Stables said her time in 4-H made her a better public speaker and emphasized the value of good public speaking skills in many careers. Her involvement also gave her the opportunity to travel extensively throughout the state and meet many people, some who became lifelong friends. “I am so thankful I had the
City wants tough zoning around elementary school BY JEBB JOHNSTON email@example.com
The Board of Mayor and Aldermen will consider tighter zoning regulations for residential property near Corinth Elementary School. The board on Tuesday agreed to ask the planning commission to study zoning on Droke Road and make a recommendation to the Board of Aldermen. Mayor Tommy Irwin said residents who live between South Parkway and Clark Street have expressed concerns about the possibility of apartments being built in the area and would like to see the zoning changed. With the major investment made in the nearby Corinth Elementary School, he shares their concerns about protecting the

Teacher academy assists Special Olympics BY BOBBY J. SMITH firstname.lastname@example.org
The Alcorn Career and Technology Center’s Teacher Academy students recently assisted the athletes who competed in the Mississippi Area 11 Special Olympics. Approximately 300 athletes competed in the event, held Friday, April 13, at the Pontotoc City Track and Field. Area 11 includes Pontotoc, Lee, Union, Prentiss, Alcorn, Tishomingo, Itawamba and Tippah counties. “We consider it a great honor to be asked to assist with the event,” said Alcorn Teacher Academy In-
structor Nan Nethery. The class’ involvement began when Alcorn County Special Education Coordinator Stephanie Clausel asked Nethery if she would consider letting her students help with the athletes. Nethery said she and her students didn’t know what to expect from the experience. They were told that each athlete would need one or two assistants. Each student would be assigned an athlete. The students would assist their respective athletes as the went from one event to another. They would also provide encourage-
ment and congratulations on a job well done. “The day turned out to be a true blessing for myself as well as the Teacher Academy students,” Nethery said. “This was an excellent opportunity for my students to explore a different avenue to the world of education.” In addition to their participation in the state Area 11 Special Olympics, the Teacher Academy students attended a meeting of the Alcorn School District Board of Directors, where they had the opportunity to meet

The authors of “Corinth” — the newest edition of Arcadia Publishing’s popular “Images of America” series — will sign copies of their book on Friday from 6 to 9 p.m. at KC’s Espresso. Co-authors Jess Ables and LuAnne Parrish spent six months compiling more than 200 old photos for the book. The shots that made the final cut were chosen from 600700 photos they’d collected, most coming from the Crossroads Museum. For the cover of the book, Ables and Parrish chose a 1916 photo of a pair of switch engines in the Corinth rail yard with the engine’s fiveman crew. The photos was chosen because of the crucial role played by
the railroads in Corinth’s founding. The story of Corinth is told in three chapters: (1) Genesis and the Coming of War; (2) A Center of Commerce, Industry and Culture; and (3) Celebrities, Celebrations, and CHS. Ables said the two authors “didn’t even scratch the surface” of all the stories regarding Corinth’s history and the important people associated with the town. He said he hopes to get people to archive all the old photos still in existence so that the stories might be preserved. Ables is a native of South Texas. He studied art at Texas State University and worked 45 years in the commercial printing industry prior to coming to Corinth. He is proud to hold a dual-citizenship as a Texan and a
Corinthian. “It’s nice to remind people of the stuff that happened in the city of Corinth,” Ables said. “I hope the book will help the stories be passed down the generations.” Parrish is a fourth-generation Corinthian. She received her bachelor of science in history from Mississippi University for Women in 1978 and has been a living history reenactor for over two decades. She shares her mother’s assessment that, “If I miss Heaven, at least I got to live in Corinth, Mississippi.” Parrish is looking forward to the book-signing because of the opportunity it will give her to talk with people interested in Corinth’s history. I’m looking forward to it,” she said. “I’m looking
forward to seeing a lot of old friends I grew up with and new friends and people interested in the book.” The pair’s new book is available at area bookstores, independent retailers and online retailers, or through Arcadia Publishing at www.arcadiapublishing.com. Cost of the 128-page book is $21.99. Ables and Parrish have additional book-signing events scheduled for Saturday, May 5, at the downtown Green Market from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m.; and Saturday, May, 12, at Books-a-Million from 1 to 3 p.m. For more information about the book signing call KC’s Espresso at 2875360.

The Alcorn Career and Technology Center provides learning experiences which aid students in exploring career areas and preparing for employment and independent living. The center’s Teacher Academy program is a new high school course designed to attract students to the field of education, to provide informa-
tion and field experiences relevant to pursuing a degree in education and to prepare students for the rigors of a career in education so they will remain long-term educators. The Teacher Academy program includes classroom and hands-on experiences that will prepare students for employment or continuing education in the field of education. On a weekly basis Teacher Academy stu-
dents are assigned a host classroom at an elementary school in Alcorn County. They visit the class once a week to participate in the daily routines of a traditional classroom. “All of these opportunities have given the students an awesome opportunity to discover exactly what the world of an educator is all about,” said Nethery.

neighborhood. “All of the neighbors have nice homes there, and that’s what that needs to remain as,” he said. “I don’t want to see apartments and duplexes in that area, and the resi-
dents don’t want it.” A stricter residential zone would exclude multi-family dwellings. The residential area on the newly improved street has seen betterment with the demolition of a couple of abandoned houses and the replacement of an
older home with a new one. Community Development and Planning Director Dave Huwe said some zoning revisions are also needed on parts of the neighboring park and school property, some of which is still zoned as
residential. In other business: ■ The city followed the county’s action last week in rescinding a resolution authorizing Crossroads Arena to make final payments on its drainage project using up to $46,500 of excess funds

Charter schools only fly when bad schools fail Defenders of the education status quo in Mississippi — also known as charter school opponents — thought they had the threat of competition stifled for another year. Not so fast. The Senate revived a plan to give children and parents another publicly funded option where the traditional public schools are failing them. The bill now goes to the House, where an earlier version of this legislation was killed by one vote in committee, largely due to the opposition of three Republican lawmakers from DeSoto County who blocked one of the top initiatives of their own party. There have been several points of contention about charter schools, but the main one is how far up the chain of public school quality they should be allowed to compete. Even some folks who are open to the idea of charter schools don’t like the idea that they could vie for students and public money with schools that are rated “successful,” the third highest of the state’s seven accountability ratings. The Senate revision temporarily concedes to that objection. It gives “successful” school districts veto power over charter schools for the next three years. Either this fear of charter schools undermining “successful” schools is irrational, or it shows that the state Department of Education’s ratings are inflated. It seems to be a little of both. Charter schools are only going to fly where the traditional schools are doing a poor job. There is no demand for charter schools where the existing schools are good. A school that is truly successful should have nothing to fear from competition. ... The fact is, though, not all “successful” schools in Mississippi live up to their label, or at least not the way most people understand the term. The Mississippi Center for Public Policy, a conservative think tank that has been a major advocate of charter schools, has dug up some telling information in the state Department of Education’s accountability data. In two “successful” districts, there are no schools rated “successful” or higher. In 12 other “successful” districts, at least half the schools are rated below “successful.” Most tellingly, among the 232 schools rated “successful” in the state, 44 percent score in the bottom half of achievement scores. ... Charter schools are most gravely needed where the traditional public schools are the worst. That’s in schools that are rated below “successful,” and for now that’s where the focus should be. ... Enterprise-Journal, McComb
Prayer for today As Jesus taught us, we pray, “Our Father which art in heaven, Hallowed be thy name. Thy kingdom come. Thy will be done in earth, as it is in heaven. Give us this day our daily bread. And forgive us our debts, as we forgive our debtors. And lead us not into temptation, but deliver us from evil: For thine is the kingdom, and the power, and the glory, for ever. Amen.”
A verse to share Stand at the crossroads, and look, and ask for the ancient paths, where the good way lies; and walk in it, and find rest for your souls. — Jeremiah 6:16 (NRSV)

Time, technology, money threaten priceless history LAUREL — As a young newspaper publisher, I learned two hard lessons about newsprint — the paper on which newspapers are printed. First lesson, it is sold by the metric ton and it’s one of the major expenses of publishing. Second, in small operations like the weekly newspaper where I learned the business, the title of publisher didn’t excuse one from the hard work of unloading the 18-wheelers that delivered the newsprint to pressrooms with little or no automated equipment for handling the rolls. On average, a roll weighs between 800 and 900 pounds. I learned the cost of newsprint writing checks. I learned the weight of newsprint when I let my foot linger in the path of one of those rolls as it rolled off the truck. Both experiences were invaluable lessons. Once printed, that same newsprint takes on a different kind of weight — the weight of history. When Community Newspaper Holdings Inc., the Alabama-based company that owned the Laurel Leader-
Call newspaper decided to fold that venerable old Mississippi daily newspaper, they Sid Salter confronted a Columnist problem that has been on the rise nationally in the newspaper industry and among libraries, archivists and genealogists. What was to become of more than a century of the history of Jones County and the surrounding region contained in the newspaper’s “morgue” of bound volumes? The paper was founded as the Laurel Daily Argus on Aug. 11, 1911. The paper later changed its name first to the Laurel Daily Leader and finally to the Laurel LeaderCall. In 2007, the paper enjoyed a circulation of 7,819. In the interest of preserving the newspaper’s bound volumes and the community’s history, CNHI officials contacted the Mississippi State University Libraries and inquired if that information could be added to MSU’s Special Collections — which already contains an exten-
sive collection of the papers of Mississippi journalists like Turner Catledge, Hodding Carter, Erle Johnston, Bill Minor, Oliver Emmerich, Norma Fields, Henry Meyer, Clayton Rand, Hazel Brannon Smith, Ken Toler and Wayne Weidie. MSU is also the repository of the records of the Mississippi Press Association and an extensive collection of The Clarion-Ledger’s bound volumes. MSU Dean of Libraries Frances Coleman has been a driving force behind the building of that Mississippi journalism collection throughout her long career and authorized the acceptance of the CNHI donation of the collection to MSU. Along with MSU Library colleagues Glen Berry, John Cox and Richard Moore, I went to Laurel to collect the donation after the newspaper ceased publication. A century of the Laurel daily newspaper’s record filled a large 10-wheel truck to twothirds of capacity — and completely exhausted two white-haired men and two younger co-workers. We all left the Leader-Call building covered in the dust of
a handling a century of the paper’s reporting of births, deaths, weddings, elections, wars, economic victories and defeats, crimes, civil rights atrocities, reconciliations, oil and gas news, the emergence of one of the vast vertically-integrated poultry production and processing operations in the nation and a host of other news available nowhere else. The goal of salvaging those records from the scrap heap is to preserve them, digitize them and one day make them available to the people who need to utilize those records — and none more urgently than the historians, the genealogists, and the education community in the Jones County region. The Magnolia database system quietly funded by the Legislature has provided a framework to build such possibilities. Time, technology and money led to the records being in peril. Those same influences will ultimately be their salvation. (Sid Salter is a syndicated columnist. Contact him at 601507-8004 or sidsalter@ sidsalter.com.)
Blacks should fear Supreme Court legal actions The radical conservative majority of the Supreme Court delivered yet another bizarre opinion the other week. It ruled police and jail officials can strip search anyone arrested for anything, no matter how minor the violation or how upstanding the suspect. In doing so it agreed with the rulings of lower courts that have found strip searches legal after arrests for violating leash laws, driving without a license, falling behind in child support payments, failing to use a turn signal, or (my favorite) riding a bicycle without an audible bell. Are these guys nuts? The case that triggered the ruling involved a man who was a passenger in a car stopped for speeding. A background check revealed an unpaid fine on his record, so the cops took him to jail and forced him to take off his clothes, bend over, and the rest of it. He spent the better part of the following week in jails, where he was stripsearched again, before police discovered their information was wrong, that he’d long since paid the fine. That was fine with the

Four Horsemen (John Roberts, Samuel Alito, Antonin Scalia, and Clarence Donald Thomas) and Kaul their faithful companOther Words ion Anthony Kennedy. Apparently, you can’t be too careful. That seems to be the paranoid Right’s mantra. Oh, by the way, did I mention Albert Florence, the guy arrested — a finance manager for a New Jersey car dealership — was black? The Court didn’t seem to mention it either. It acted as though it hadn’t mattered. I’ve got news for them. Being black in this society always matters. Always. I’ve been driving for some 60 years and I’ve never been pulled over by police in a random check. It happens to black men all the time, particularly to those who commit the crime of driving a nice car. To be black in our society excites the presumption of guilt. Some people are still arguing over whether the shooting of black teenager Trayvon Martin had some-
thing to do with his race. We’ll never know what actually happened that February night in Sanford, Fla. We have the version of the shooter, George Zimmerman, who was finally jailed more than six weeks after the bullets went off. But Martin is, well…dead. I must say, Zimmerman’s story seems far-fetched. He asks us to believe his sense of duty as a self-appointed Neighborhood Watch guard prompted him to follow Martin and confront him, despite a warning from a 911 dispatcher not to. Then, he says, Martin jumped him as he was walking away, causing him to fear for his life. So he shot the kid. In self-defense. That sounds like a dogate-my-homework alibi if I ever heard one. Martin was a tall, skinny 17-year-old. Zimmerman’s a 28-yearold man on the stocky side. I don’t know how it was in your neighborhood growing up, but in mine, tall skinny kids didn’t go around committing unprovoked assaults on older, heavier guys. It just didn’t happen. Following the Feb. 26 shooting, the Sanford police released Zimmerman on the grounds he was protect-

ed by Florida’s “Stand Your Ground” law, which allows people who feel threatened to shoot their assailants. That’s where racism really begins to rear its unlovely head. Had the young black man been armed and, feeling threatened, turned and shot this hulking white stranger following him, do you imagine that the police would have let him go? In Florida? If you think that, give my regards to the Tooth Fairy the next time you see her. With or without Zimmerman’s potentially racist motive, this kill-at-will statute is a monumentally stupid law. It raises every altercation — every bar fight, every fender bender — to the level of a potentially lethal encounter. Whatever happened to the good old days when you could have a fist fight with someone without one of you ending up dead? Remind me not to go to Florida the next time it gets cold up north. And while you’re at it, remind me to get the bell on my bicycle fixed. (OtherWords columnist Donald Kaul lives in Ann Arbor, Mich. otherwords.org)

State Briefs Associated Press
Hospital sues over choice issues HATTIESBURG — Wesley Medical Center in Hattiesburg has sued a competing hospital and AAA Ambulance over what it calls improper practices. The Hattiesburg American reported that the lawsuit has been filed in federal court against the ambulance provider and its CEO Wade Spruill and Forrest General Hospital, also in Hattiesburg. Wesley alleges some patients have been falsely classified as “trauma” patients and told they could only be taken to Forrest General Hospital, when they did not meet trauma criteria and could have received care at Wesley. Wesley contends the defendants are denying local residents a choice in treatment. It also contends people were told Wesley did not have physician specialists or capabilities to care for their medical emergencies. Wesley CEO Michael Neuendorf said the lawsuit became necessary after talks with Forrest General Hospital and AAA went nowhere.
FEC reports show incumbents’ spending TUPELO — Mississippi’s four incumbent congressmen have raised and spent more than $3 million so far in the 2012 election cycle. The Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal reported that Federal Election Commission reports show 1st District U.S. Rep. Alan Nunnelee, R-Miss., has raised more than $1 million — a third of the total contributions to incumbents.
Third District Republican Gregg Harper has raised $555,046 in contributions. Democrat Bennie Thompson of District 2 and Republican Steven Palazzo of District 4 have split the rest almost evenly. Thompson thus far has spent 40 percent of the total $3.3 million spent by all four congressmen. Thompson also has the most cash on hand as of the end of March, with more than $1.2 million in the bank. Now serving his 11th consecutive term, Thompson — whose district includes the Delta and most of the city of Jackson — has amassed a healthy cash reserve from nearly two decades of nonstop fundraising. Mississippi’s Republican House members have less tenure: Harper’s in his second term; Nunnelee and Palazzo in their first. And their fund balances reflect it. The three ended the reporting period with an average of $250,000 each in the bank — about a fifth of Thompson’s cash reserve. Nunnelee, though, came in second place with campaign spending at just under $1 million. That’s about double what Palazzo spent and a third more than Harper.
Corps planning to remove Red Barn ROLLING FORK — The Red Barn, a familiar landmark along U.S. Highway 61 near Rolling Fork, will soon be removed — a victim of Mother Nature and years of neglect. The empty building collapsed during the spring flood of 2011. The U.S. Army Corps of Engineers Vicksburg District plans a meeting on April 25 in Rolling Fork
to discuss the barn’s removal. The corps said in a news release the hearing is necessary because removing the barn is considered an adverse action within the regulations of the National Historic Preservation Act. The Red Barn was built in 1918 by the Graft family. It was to have been part of a 33-acre interpretative center. Budget cuts postponed work on the center.
Law allows donations to director’s pay JACKSON — Private donors are once again allowed to supplement the salary of the Mississippi Development Authority director. Gov. Phil Bryant signed House Bill 1349 into law on Tuesday, and it took effect immediately. Under the previous state law, the MDA director’s salary was capped at 150 percent of the governor’s salary. With the governor making $122,000 a year, the top pay for the MDA chief was $183,000. Private supplements had been allowed in the past, and Republican Bryant wanted to allow them again to make the MDA job more lucrative. The new law requires MDA to publish online the names of donors, and how much they give, toward the director’s salary. MDA’s interim director is Jim Barksdale, a former executive for Netscape and FedEx. He’s paid $1 a year.
Man cited for animal cruelty COLUMBUS — A Columbus motorist has
been fined $200 for throwing a kitten out of moving vehicle. Officials with the Columbus-Lowndes Humane Society told The Commercial Dispatch that the 5-week-old kitten was not harmed. Authorities say when the man threw the kitten from the window of his car Friday he didn’t know the vehicle behind him belonged to an undercover officer with the Columbus Police Department. The motorist has not been identified. Animal Control Officer Robert Davis, who was called to the scene, said the driver complained that the kitten had meowed incessantly all day and the previous night, and it was getting on his nerves, so he threw it out the passenger window. Davis says the man’s 5-year-old son was with him at the time.
Site announced for new Oxford hospital OXFORD — Baptist Memorial Health Care Corporation will build its new $250 million Oxford hospital on a 160-acre tract just west of the ex-
isting hospital. Memphis-based Baptist Memorial announced its plans Tuesday in a meeting with officials from Oxford and Lafayette County. Baptist spokesman Dick Cowart said 15 sites were considered. Cowart said the new location selected preserves the south Oxford medical offices and clinics, makes the existing campus more marketable and has multiple access points to highways. The purchase agreement required the hospital footprint to be in Oxford city limits, the site is mostly outside the city but under court consideration for annexation. Both city and county boards approved enabling Baptist to proceed with site planning and state approval.
Port of Gulfport bill passes House JACKSON — Legislation that removes the Port of Gulfport and its $570 million postHurricane Katrina expansion and renovation from state government oversight has been sent
to the governor. The Sun Herald reports that the Mississippi House gave final legislative approval to House Bill 1091 on Tuesday. The bill exempts the Port of Gulfport from state-agency bidding and purchasing oversight and declares it to be its own governing authority. A contractor’s complaint to Department of Finance and Administration in 2011 that he was passed over as the low bidder on a multimillion-dollar dredging project prompted the agency to intervene, and the attorney general opined the port should have always come under DFA oversight.
Belle elected Aberdeen mayor ABERDEEN — Aberdeen voters have returned Cecil Belle to the mayor’s office. The former mayor regained the top job in city government Tuesday by defeating Maurice Howard in the Democratic primary runoff. Complete but unofficial returns show Belle with 1,091 votes and Howard with 680 votes.

Event plans to break costumed dog record Associated Press
KANSAS CITY, Mo. — A Kansas City promoter hopes to break a world record by parading at least 700 costumed dogs, mostly Chihuahuas, down a city street on Cinco de Mayo. Promoter Mark Valen-
APRIL 19, 2012 8 PM
tine says the parade will introduce Chihuahuas to their cultural heritage while helping a no-kill shelter called The Pet Connection. Valentine says the Guinness world record for most costumed dogs doesn’t
specify a breed. He expects there will be more than enough entries to break it. The parade starts at 11 a.m. on May 5. All canine entrants must be leashed and in costume. Registrations will be accepted onsite.
Secret Service plans to question Nugent WASHINGTON— Rocker and gun rights champion Ted Nugent says he will meet with the Secret Service on Thursday to explain his raucous remarks about what he called Barack Obama’s “evil, Americahating administration” — comments some critics interpreted as a threat against the president. “The conclusion will be obvious that I threatened no one,” Nugent told radio interviewer Glenn Beck on Wednesday. Nugent said he’d been contacted by the agency and would cooperate fully even though he found the complaints “silly.” The controversy erupted after the self-styled “Motor City Madman” made an impassioned plea for support for Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney during the National Rifle Association meeting in St. Louis last weekend. “We need to ride into that battlefield and chop their heads off in November,” Nugent said of the Obama administration. He also included a cryptic pronouncement: “If Barack Obama becomes the next president in November, again, I will either be dead or in jail by this time next year.” Outraged Democrats circulated the remarks and suggested they were threatening. Secret Service spokesman George Ogilvie confirmed that the agency was looking into the matter but declined to give details. “We are aware of the incident and we are taking appropriate follow-up,” Ogilvie said.
Retired couple claims share of jackpot RED BUD, Ill. — A retired southern Illinois couple has claimed the third and final share of last month’s record $656 million Mega Millions jackpot. Illinois Lottery officials introduced Merle and Patricia Butler at a ceremony in their hometown of Red Bud, where they bought the winning ticket for the March 30 drawing. The retired analysts chose to accept the prize as a lump-sum payment of $111 million, after taxes. They are the only one of the three winners whose names have been made public. Holders of the other tickets in Kansas and Maryland anonymously claimed their prizes. They bought a $3 quick-pick ticket at the MotoMart convenience store in Red Bud, which is about 40 miles southeast of St. Louis.

O [IFEG XXLIE ;ITY
WASHINGTON — Where do for-profit colleges get the money they spend on all those highway billboards and television and radio ads? Mostly from the government, at least indirectly. Federal money, most of it through the financial aid that students get, accounts for up to 90 percent of forprofit colleges’ revenue — even more in some cases if veterans attend the school on the GI bill. And while figures vary, some institutions spend a quarter or more of their revenue on recruiting, far more than traditional colleges. In some cases, recruiting expenses approach what these institutions spend on instruction. A recent Senate report on 15 large, publicly traded for-profit education companies said they got
86 percent of their revenue from taxpayers and have spent a combined $3.7 billion annually on marketing and recruiting. Sen. Tom Harkin, D-Iowa, says the connection is clear: “Their marketing budgets are funded by taxpayers.” On Wednesday, Harkin and Kay Hagan, D-N.C., introduced a bill to try to check the flood of advertising, which has particularly targeted Iraq and Afghanistan veterans for the benefits they receive under the new GI Bill. The measure would prohibit colleges of all kinds from using dollars from federal student assistance programs, including the GI Bill, to pay for advertising and recruiting. The bill would extend a current rule that prohibits federal dollars from being used for lobbying — though the lobbying budgets of for-profit colleges are tiny compared to what they spend on advertising.
Panetta apologizes for corpse photos WASHINGTON — The White House and the Pentagon voiced regrets Wednesday for newly published photographs that purport to show U.S. troops posing with the bodies of dead insurgents in Afghanistan, with Defense Secretary Leon Panetta calling them a violation of America’s “core values.” “My apology is on behalf of the Department of Defense and the U.S. government,” Panetta told a news conference following a NATO meeting in Brussels. At the White House, President Barack Obama’s chief spokesman, Jay Carney, echoed Panetta’s comments, saying the incident was “reprehensible.” It was the latest in a series of recent Afghan battlefield embarrassments for the United States, and it came at a time when Washington is still working with President Hamid Karzai in Kabul to smooth over strained relations. Carney said the picture-taking incident does not represent the standards of the U.S. military and said that Obama believes the situation needs to be investigated and those responsible held accountable. He said he didn’t know if the president had seen the photos. The photos were published in Wednesday’s Los Angeles Times. One shows members of the 82nd Airborne Division posing in 2010 with Afghan police and the severed legs of a suicide bomber. The same platoon a few months later was sent to investigate the remains of three insurgents reported to have accidentally blown themselves up — and soldiers again posed and mugged for photographs with the remains, the newspaper said. A photo from that incident appears to show the hand of a dead insurgent resting on a U.S. soldier’s shoulder as the soldier smiles. Top U.S. military and civilian officials rushed to condemn the soldiers’ actions Wednesday, calling them repugnant and a dishonor to others who have served in the conflict. The Army said an investigation is under way.
GSA watchdog reports new investigations WASHINGTON — The General Services Administration’s internal watchdog said Wednesday that employees are heeding his call to report wrongdoing, and messages on his hotline have triggered new investigations beyond an $823,000 Las
Vegas conference and junkets to resorts. “I don’t know what we’re going to find but it has not been pretty,” Inspector General Brian Miller told the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee. Miller previously revealed that GSA officials in Western states went on taxpayer-financed junkets to Hawaii, South Pacific islands, California’s Napa Valley and Palm Springs; stayed in resort hotel suites, and threw lavish parties. His April 2 report detailed how four Western regions partied at their Las Vegas conference in 2010, which featured a clown, a mindreader, a team-building exercise to build bicycles and a rap video making fun of the spending. Miller previously said that employees would not blow the whistle on the misconduct because they believed they would be “squashed like a bug” for doing so. “The result of the release of the report is that people are coming forward now,” he said. “They are calling the (inspector general’s) hotline. The Democratic-led Environment committee struck a somewhat different tone than two Republican-run House hearings this week that featured those who allowed or participated in the misconduct. While the outrage over GSA spending has been bipartisan, the Senate panel only summoned Miller and Acting GSA Administrator Daniel Tangherlini, the two officials who are playing key roles in changing the free-spending culture at the GSA.
‘American Bandstand’ host Dick Clark dies LOS ANGELES — Dick Clark, the ever-youthful television host and tireless entrepreneur who helped bring rock ‘n’ roll into the mainstream on “American Bandstand,” and later produced and hosted a vast range of programming from game shows to the year-end countdown from Times Square on “New Year’s Rockin’ Eve,” has died. He was 82. Spokesman Paul Shefrin said Clark had a heart attack Wednesday morning at Saint John’s hospital in Santa Monica, where he had gone the day before for an outpatient procedure. Clark had continued performing even after he suffered a stroke in 2004 that affected his ability to speak and walk. Long dubbed “the world’s oldest teenager” because of his boyish appearance, Clark bridged the rebellious new music scene and traditional show business, and equally comfortable whether chatting about music with Sam Cooke or bantering with Ed McMahon about TV bloopers. He thrived as the founder of Dick Clark Productions, supplying movies, game and music shows, beauty contests and more to TV. Among his credits: “The $25,000 Pyramid,” “TV’s Bloopers and Practical Jokes” and the American Music Awards. For a time in the 1980s, he had shows on all three networks and was listed among the Forbes 400 of wealthiest Americans. Clark also was part of radio as partner in the United Stations Radio Network, which provided programs — including Clark’s — to thousands of stations. “There’s hardly any segment of the population that doesn’t see what I do,” Clark told The Associated Press in a 1985 interview. “It can be embarrassing. People come up to me and say, ‘I love your show,’ and I have no idea which one they’re talking about.”

BofAâ€™s earnings Historically low mortgage rates helped boost home sales and mortgage refinancings in the first three months of this year. And itâ€™s likely that they also helped Bank of Americaâ€™s first-quarter results, out today. Making home loans is a key revenue source for the lender, which has been focused on cost-cutting and strengthening its balance sheet in recent months.

Burger King is getting ready to go public later this year. But can it tempt investors? The private equity ďŹ rm that bought the restaurant chain in late 2010, 3G Capital, will return Burger King to the stock market by selling a 29 percent stake for $1.4 billion to Justice Holdings Ltd. Once the deal is complete, Justice will be renamed Burger King Wordwide and move its stock listing from London to the New York Stock Exchange.

Among hamburger chains, Burger Kingâ€™s market share fell from 17 percent a decade ago to 12 percent last year. Burger Kingâ€™s turnaround plans come at a time of increased competition and industry shifts. Health concerns have paved the way for restaurants like Subway to draw customers away. Thereâ€™s also competition from upstarts like Five Guys Burgers and Fries. The new menu items could be a flop if diners dismiss them as mere imitations of McDonaldâ€™s recent offerings.

Backed by Burger Kingâ€™s biggest marketing campaign, 10 new menu items, including smoothies, snack wraps and salads, were added this month. Franchisees are being given incentives to remodel aging restaurants. As part of 3G Capitalâ€™s plan to overhaul operations, corporate headcount has been reduced by 40 percent; and general and administrative expenses were slashed by $107 million in Burger Kingâ€™s ďŹ rst year as a private company.

Larry Brown has interest in SMU job Associated Press
DALLAS — Larry Brown is serious about getting back to coaching and the vacancy at SMU. Brown said Wednesday that he hasn’t yet been offered the job, but had spoken again with SMU athletic director Steve Orsini since they first met on Monday. The 71-year-old Hall of Fame coach said he expected his long-time agent, Joe Glass, to have further conversations with Orsini. “They haven’t offered me the job, I haven’t accepted the job, and I would never do it without Joe’s blessing,” Brown told The Associated Press. “I think before anything happens, Steve would probably have to have his blessing from his president. That’s where we are.” SMU, which is moving from Conference USA to the much tougher Big East in 2013, fired Matt Doherty last month after six seasons. The Mustangs haven’t won an NCAA tournament game since 1988, the year Brown led Kansas to the national championship.

Braves go deep in victory over Mets BY CHARLES ODUM Associated Press
ATLANTA — The weather was lousy. So was R.A. Dickey’s knuckleball. Dickey gave up three homers and eight runs in his worst outing in four years, and the New York Mets ended a .500 trip with a 14-6 loss to the Atlanta Braves. There was light rain through the early innings, making it more difficult for Dickey to throw his specialty pitch. “It’s like throwing water balloons,” Dickey said. Dan Uggla ended a 0-for24 slide against Dickey with a two-run homer. Juan Francisco and Freddie Freeman
also hit two-run drives. Francisco’s homer came on a fastball. Uggla and Freeman hit knuckleballs for their first home runs this season. “They wiggled up there but didn’t do much movement,” Dickey said of the pitches to Uggla and Freeman. Mets manager Terry Collins said the wet weather “certainly had a huge effect.” “You’ve got to have a good grip on it and in the constant rain, it was really hard for him to throw,” Collins said. Dickey said the weather “can’t be an excuse.” “I still have to find a way to keep us in the ballgame,” he said, noting he has pitched in worse conditions. “Today
I didn’t give us a very good chance.” Ike Davis homered for New York, which completed a 3-3 trip. The Mets won the series opener against Atlanta before two straight lopsided losses. “Anytime you’ll take .500 on the road, but because we got started on the trip so well, it’s a little disappointing the way it ended the last two days,” Collins said. Atlanta has won seven of eight since opening the season with four losses, including three straight in New York. The Braves set season highs for runs and hits (16). They scored 43 runs in going 5-1 on the homestand. “Today’s game, we just
kept adding on,” Braves manager Fredi Gonzalez said. “I thought it was one of those games where if you didn’t, you’d be up against it. ... We’ve got the guys who are capable of doing it.” Uggla’s homer capped a four-run third that gave Atlanta a 6-3 lead. “It’s a huge load off your shoulders, especially when you’re kind of known for being a power hitter,” Uggla said of his long wait for his first homer. “It was tough for me to shoulder. I was having dreams about it.” David Wright had three RBIs, tying Darryl StrawberPlease see BRAVES | 9

memory loss both on and off the court during the previous season. Alzheimerâ€™s is a brain disease that destroys cognitive abilities over time. With the blessing of University of Tennessee, Knoxville Chancellor Jimmy Cheek, the Hall of Fame coach said she planned to continue coaching as long as possible and that she wanted to show the world that it was still possible to function, even in the face of dementia and Alzheimerâ€™s. She had been going about business as usual But with a need to devote more attention to managing her health, Summitt handed over more duties to her longtime assistants. This season, Warlick as associate head coach took the lead during games and handles postgame interviews, while the entire staff has done the bulk of the recruiting and management of practices. Even with Warlick and assistant coaches Mickie DeMoss and Dean Lockwood carrying a larger load, Summitt continued to leave her mark through guidance and motivation with her trademark icy stare, even if she did wear the look more infrequently. Summittâ€™s diagnosis came during one of the Lady Volsâ€™ most disappointing stretches â€” by Summittâ€™s lofty standards, anyway. Tennessee hasnâ€™t won a national championship since 2008 and hasnâ€™t even reached the Final Four, which ties for their longest such drought in program history. Tennesseeâ€™s five seniors were a part of the team that lost in the first round of the 2009 NCAA tournament, the only time in school history the Lady Vols had bowed out on the first weekend. Those seniors promised they would win a ninth national championship this season not just to change their legacy and to honor Summitt, but as center Vicki Baugh put it, â€œWeâ€™re playing for everyone who has Alzheimerâ€™s.â€? They just couldnâ€™t get back to the Final Four, and the group of seniors wound up the first Lady Vols to miss the Final Four. They lost to eventual champion Baylor and Brittney Griner, a player Summitt couldnâ€™t convince to come to Knoxville, in the regional final. Itâ€™s unlikely anyone will ever come close to matching Summittâ€™s accomplishments in womenâ€™s basketball, which has seen more parity in the past decade. Summittâ€™s career ends with a 1,098-208 record, 16 regular season Southeastern Conference championships and 16 SEC tournament titles. She also led the 1984 Olympic team to a gold medal. During her time, Tennessee never failed to reach the NCAA tournament, never received a seed lower than No. 5 and reached 18 Final Fours.

NEW YORK â€” Missy Franklin has about five weeks left of her junior year of high school, just over two months before Olympic trials, and 100 days until the London Games. The 16-year-old swimmer won three gold medals at last summerâ€™s world championships, the kind of performance
that makes for a potential breakout star heading into London. Franklin, who lives outside Denver, missed a couple of days of school to travel to Times Square for a U.S. Olympic Committee celebration of Wednesdayâ€™s milestone date. Thrilled that someone found a team jacket with long enough sleeves to fit her 6-foot-1 frame, the teenager breezed her way

Josh Willingham, Minnesota The Twins are struggling to score runs, but Willingham showed why Minnesota signed the free agent over the winter. He hit an even .500 and slugged north of 1.000 with three home runs.
C.J. Wilson, Los Angeles It hasn’t been the kind of start to the 2012 season that the Angels expected, but Wilson was a lone bright spot last week. He won both his starts with a 1.38 ERA and 1.15 WHIP.
Matt Kemp, Los Angeles For the second week in a row, the most feared hitter in the NL is honored here. Kemp hit .455 for the week with an NL-leading four home runs and nine RBIs. He scored seven times.
Jake Westbrook, St. Louis The Cardinals are getting strong starting pitching from unexpected sources, and Westbrook tossed two gems this week. He won at Cincinnati, then defeated the Cubs at home. In 14 innings he was 2-0 with a 0.64 ERA and 0.86 WHIP.
Trevor Bauer, Arizona The No. 3 overall pick in the 2011 draft is as unconventional as you will find. His pregame routine includes foul pole-to-foul pole long toss and agility drills with a flex pole. He began this season at Double-A Mobile and is 3-0 after three starts with a 0.57 ERA. Harnessing his pitches is what will take him to the next level. In 15.2 innings, he’s allowed just eight hits, but he has walked 12 and thrown five wild pitches. His 20 strikeouts show that when he’s in the strike zone, he’s tough to hit. Dylan Bundy, Baltimore Drafted fourth overall last summer, Baseball America has Bundy ranked as the No. 10 prospect entering this season. The 19-year-old has made two professional starts (both this season) and has pitched just six innings. But he has been perfect: no hits, no walks, no hit batsmen and no runs, with 12 Ks. He’s pitching for the Single-A Delmarva Shorebirds.
April 20, 1912 Fenway Park opened as the Red Sox defeated the Yankees, 7-6 in 11 innings. In Detroit, the Tigers opened Tiger Stadium with a win over the Indians. April 18, 1958 The Dodgers hosted the Giants for the first-ever game in Los Angeles. After a downtown parade, 78,682 fans crowded into the L.A. Coliseum to watch the Dodgers win 6-5. April 17, 1969 In only the 10th game in the history of the Montreal Expos, Bill Stoneman tossed a no-hitter against the Philadelphia Phillies. He walked five and whiffed eight. The game took two hours and 24 minutes, and was seen by just 6,496 fans in Philadelphia.
Remember those cool little trophies that Topps has put on baseball cards of the previous year’s best rookies? The card company began the practice in 1960 honoring the best rookies from 1959 — a group that included the likes of Pumpsie Green and Hall of Famer Willie McCovey. Since that time, Topps has forsaken the trophies in a few years, but has continued to select an All-Rookie Team. Topps usually honors eight position players and two pitchers, one right-handed, one lefty. We prefer four starters and a closer. Here’s our lineup of the top 2012 rookies we believe will be honored by Topps at the end of the season. Some are still in the minors, but you will know their names by the end of the summer.
CATCHER Hector Sanchez, San Francisco Sanchez won’t get as many plate appearances as other catchers because of some guy named Buster Posey. But as the Giants get Posey more time at first base, Sanchez will continue to impress with his bat and arm. Others: Devin Mesoraco, Cincinnati; Wilin Rosario, Colorado
FIRST BASE Anthony Rizzo, Chicago Cubs Rizzo is likely to make the scene by the end of May, and will immediately take his place in the middle of the Cubs’ lineup. The Cubbies need his bat, for sure. Other: Chris Parmelee, Minnesota
SECOND BASE Freddy Galvis, Philadelphia Given the full-time gig in Philadelphia until Chase Utley returns, Galvis’ bat has been slow starting this season, but he knows how to play the position — and there is little competition at the position. Other: Kolten Wong, St. Louis

Rangers Joe Nathan gets first save, bullpen only potential problem. Dodgers Matt Kemp determined to have monster season. Tigers Miguel Cabrera, Prince Fielder latest version of Bash Bros. Yankees Derek Jeter off to hottest start of his career. Cardinals Kyle Lohse, Lance Lynn, Jake Westbrook are all 2-0. Diamondbacks Bullpen becoming strength of the team. Nationals Stephen Strasburg is officially dominant. Blue Jays Kyle Drabek finally pitching like an ace. Phillies Phils’ leader: 5 RBIs; Ryan Howard: 11 after 9 games in 2011. Red Sox Big Papi crushing the ball early. Braves Atlanta needs Jason Heyward and he’s producing. Rays Rays out of the gate slowly once again. Brewers Cleanup hitters are batting just .103 with no homers. Angels Offense is struggling and bullpen is terrible. Reds Aroldis Chapman dominant in relief role. Indians Derek Lowe settling in as Cleveland’s ace. Giants Tough blow losing Brian Wilson for the season. Rockies Rockies and opponents have identical .777 OPS. Mariners Outhomered 15-7, but outscored by only two, 42-40. Marlins Giancarlo Santon yet to go deep, Omar Infante has four. Orioles Four regulars hitting better than .285; four below .220. Mets Relievers Francisco, Byrdak, Rauch and Parnell 1 ER in 16.2 IP. White Sox Opponents batting .196 with runners in scoring position. A’s May have found another ace in lefty Tom Milone. Pirates Bucs have 2.57 ERA and .188 batting average. Royals Hitting .313 at home, .227 on the road. Astros J.D. Martinez becoming a big hit in Houston. Cubs Cubs have no home runs from their No. 3 and No. 4 hitters. Padres Hitting .219 on the road, .179 at Petco Park. Twins Josh Willingham brings big bat to Minneapolis.

We’ve Got Next
Nolan Arenado, Colorado The third baseman has hit well at every stop, including spring training this season. The hot corner in Denver will be his later this summer. He is among the best long-term prospects on this list as well.
Jesus Montero, Seattle He has finally arrived. The much-publicized prized hitting prospect in the Yankees organization was traded to Seattle over the winter. Mariners fans will not be disappointed. The man can hit and will be the linchpin of Seattle’s offense for several years.
SHORTSTOP Tyler Pastornicky, Atlanta Clearly, the deepest position for rookies this season, there are shortstops galore. Pastornicky isn’t the best defender of this group, but he is expected to hit close to .300 and steal 20-plus bases. Others: Zack Cozart, Cincinnati; Nick Franklin, Seattle; Marvin Gonzalez, Houston; Jose Iglesias, Boston
OUTFIELD Yoenis Cespedes, Oakland The Cuban defector has quickly proven he has power to spare and is not overmatched by big league pitching. It will be interesting to see how well he adjusts once opponents have more thorough scouting reports on him. Bryce Harper, Washington I suppose if he doesn’t become a first-ballot Hall of Famer after all the hype, his career will be considered a colossal failure. But seriously, his bat is major league ready. The Nationals want him to get a little more comfortable in center field, and it never hurts to delay the major league service clock from ticking. Brett Jackson, Chicago Cubs The Cubs need an infusion of youth and offense. Jackson has proven to be an all-around player in the minor leagues. With Chicago outfielders struggling offensively, Jackson could see an earlier promotion than originally expected. Others: Mike Trout, Los Angeles Angels; Kirk Nieuwenhuis, New York Mets; Leonys Martin, Texas
STARTING PITCHER Yu Darvish, Texas His large frame and velocity separate him from previous starting pitchers from Japan. Darvish will have the run support and defense to allow him to put up nice numbers, even when he struggles. Matt Moore, Tampa Bay When a manager trusts a youngster enough for him to make the first start of his career in Game 1 of the ALDS, it makes you think the pitcher must be special. Moore is the next young ace for the Rays. Tom Milone, Oakland He doesn’t overpower hitters, but much like Tom Glavine a couple of decades ago, Milone keeps hitters off balance and they rarely square him up. AP Photo Bryce Harper (top) is expected to make his major Manny Banuelos, N.Y. Yankees The Yankees have questions league debut this season.

Active pitchers who have held opponents to a sub-.200 batting average over a full season: Justin Verlander 2011 (.192); Johan Santana 2004 (.192); Kerry Wood 1998 (.196) [min. 162 innings]. Times players have hit 40-plus home runs in a season over the past three years. Jose Bautista and Albert Pujols are the only players to accomplish it twice.
Can you name the only pitcher since 1955 to win 20 games while pitching less than 200 innings?

Marlon Byrd of the Cubs ranks at the bottom of the 193 players with a .065 average and .212 OPS. Athlon Sports
TRIVIA ANSWER: In 2002, Pedro Martinez of the Boston Red Sox had one of the most dominating seasons in the last 30 years. He was 20-4 with a 2.26 ERA and 239 strikeouts in just 199.1 innings.
Yankees, Red Sox Avoid the Cellar The Baltimore Orioles are bad enough that they won’t let it happen this season, but just in case you’re wondering, the last time the Yankees and Red Sox finished last and next-to-last in their division/league was in 1966. The only other time was way back in 1925. Now in 1966, the Red Sox were a year away from winning the pennant in 1967, and the Yankees were two years removed from winning five straight from 1960-64. Boston had stars like Carl Yastrzemski, George Scott, Jim Lonborg and a young Tony Conigliaro. The Yankees had Elston Howard behind the plate, Bobby Richardson at second and an outfield of Roy White, Mickey Mantle and Roger Maris. Howard, Mantle and Maris were all former MVPs. Mel Stottlemyre and Al Downing led the pitching staff that included an aging Whitey Ford. But somehow the Red Sox managed to finish ninth, 26 games back of the Orioles (who swept the Dodgers in the World Series) and the Yankees a half game behind the Sox. I wonder how Mickey, Maris and Whitey felt about finishing last. Back in 1925, the Red Sox were a collection of no-name players, so it’s understandable that they would finish last, 49.5 games out of first. But Babe Ruth, Lou Gehrig, Bob Meusel and Earle Combs led the Yankees’ lineup. You would think that would be enough firepower to support a pitching staff of Herb Pennock, Urban Shocker, Waite Hoyt and Sad Sam Jones. And the Yankees were 21 games better than the Red Sox, but still finished seventh in the eight-team league. Must have been why Sam was so sad.

Moyer ignores Father Time, notches another win at 49 BY PAT GRAHAM Associated Press
DENVER — Jamie Moyer is headed to the Hall of Fame. Well, maybe his uniform anyway. Or perhaps even his glove. Cooperstown has asked for some sort of memorabilia from Moyer to commemorate his record-setting night as the 49-year-old left-hander became the oldest pitcher to ever win a major league contest. And whatever the Hall of Fame decides it
wants, Moyer said he will certainly deliver after throwing seven efficient innings to help the Colorado Rockies beat the San Diego Padres 5-3 on Tuesday. “To have your name mentioned with great players of the past or Hall of Fame players, it’s pretty special,” Moyer said. For Moyer (1-2), making history was nice. But stopping the Rockies’ two-game skid was just as rewarding. Moyer was effective all evening as he picked up
his 268th career win, tying him with Hall of Famer Jim Palmer for 34th on the career list. He relied on a cutter the Padres couldn’t get good wood on and a 78mph fastball that danced all over the place. Moyer gave up just six hits and two runs — both unearned — as he kept the Padres hitters off balance and guessing. “Today, for me, just like it’s been my previous two starts — going out and trying to give my best effort,” Moyer said.
That’s a tried and true formula for success, one that’s worked well for Moyer over a career that has stretched nearly a quarter century and included 689 games. Moyer earned that elusive win for the ages in his third start of the season. He is 49 years, 150 days old. That’s important to note since before Moyer’s effort the oldest pitcher to win a game in the majors was Jack Quinn of the Brooklyn Dodgers on Sept. 13, 1932, when he
was 49 years, 70 days old. Moyer doesn’t know all that much about Quinn. He wishes he did, though. “As players, we should know more about the game, the history of the game,” Moyer said. “You need to respect the game and the people that came before you.” He’s definitely a part of baseball’s lore now. But this milestone win was far from easy. Rafael Betancourt struggled in the ninth as he surrendered a solo homer to Nick Hundley
and put two more runners on before striking out Yonder Alonso to close out the game. About the only flaw to the night were two more errors by smooth-fielding shortstop Troy Tulowitzki, giving him six already this season. The Gold Glove winner had six all of last year. With streaks of gray in his hair, Moyer looks like a player who will turn 50 in November. But once he steps on the mound that youthful exuberance returns.

Ex-wife can’t take man’s trash talk about girlfriend DEAR ABBY: My exhusband likes to call to ask me for advice. Our most recent conversation was in regard to his girlfriend and her sexual past, which he knew about before they Abigail started Van Buren dating. He now disapDear Abby proves of her history and he began calling her unpleasant names. He tells me he deserves better but intends to stay with her until he gets bored. Hearing this sort of talk gives me a stomachache and heartburn. I feel ter-
rible for the woman. I want to be a friend to my ex, but I'm not sure I can handle the stress it causes. He has had a hard life, and I didn't make it any easier by divorcing him. Is the only solution not to take his calls, like my friends tell me? I'm not sure I can do that without major guilt. — WISCONSIN READER DEAR READER: I'll offer another option: The next time your ex starts asking you for relationship advice, tell him you don't like hearing the way he talks about his girlfriend. Explain that it makes you so uncomfortable that you prefer to avoid the topic of his love life. If he respects your
wishes, continue taking his calls. If not, because you find them upsetting, refuse them. And please, stop feeling guilty about the divorce. From your description of your former husband, he is a user, and you're lucky to be rid of him. DEAR ABBY: I attend a church with about 350 worshippers. The church provides a supervised nursery for infants to 2 years of age. Most parents with babies use it. However, one couple has a 2-year-old child and a 2-month-old baby. These parents do not take advantage of the nursery, but keep the kids in the sanctuary. Last Sunday the baby,
who was in the father's arms, cried during most of the service. The parents may be able to tune it out, but many of us were very distracted by the wailing. The father is a schoolteacher. I couldn't help but wonder how this teacher would handle a student who caused such a disruption in his classroom. I don't think he would tolerate an hour of loud crying from anyone. Why don't these people understand their behavior prevents others from worshipping as they would like? — SILENCE, PLEASE DEAR SILENCE, PLEASE: That's a good question, and one I recommend you pose to the
person who was conducting the service. Out of consideration for the congregation, he or she should “remind” the parents that the nursery is available, and stress that in the future it be used to prevent the problem from recurring because the disruption caused “so many complaints.” DEAR ABBY: I was recently a bridesmaid at a friend's wedding. The bride gave all of us bridesmaids gifts after the reception. The bags were fancy and contained expensive gourmet chocolate candy. When I went to open mine, I noticed the box had already been unwrapped and half of it had been eaten. I didn't
say anything to the others or the bride because I didn't want to hurt her feelings or seem ungrateful. What should I do? — BRIDESMAID IN TENNESSEE DEAR BRIDESMAID: While it's unfortunate, I see no reason to bring it up now. Expensive or not, it's only a box of chocolates, and it appears someone may have bitten off more than they should chew. (Dear Abby is written by Abigail Van Buren, also known as Jeanne Phillips, and was founded by her mother, Pauline Phillips. Write Dear Abby at www.DearAbby.com or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)
tion to a sink full of dishes or a random and disparate pile of paperwork, that kind of stress is actually good for Virgo. It provides a purpose and an opportunity to straighten up a corner of the world, thus making it a better place. BAD STRESS: Guilt produces a negative stress in Virgo. This sign has a hard time letting things go. Also, because of Virgo's tendency to be hypervigilant, Virgo sometimes feels guilty about things that are, in reality, not Virgo's fault and are beyond Virgo's control. STRESS BUSTER: Meditation and mantras that focus on detaching from upsetting situations, thoughts and patterns are most helpful to Virgo. Repeating the simple mantra “let it go” while breathing deeply in and
out is a simple and effective mood changer. Also, leaving a situation by taking a walk or a drive can lend a helpful new perspective. CELEBRITY PROFILES: Though many babies born today will be Taurus, in the year Kate Hudson was born, April 19 was an Aries birthday. In fact, there is nary a Taurus planet to be found in this actress's chart. With her sun, Mercury and Mars in the fiery, passionate sign of the ram, Hudson embodies the zesty, passionate, high energy of Aries. Her natal Venus in Pisces is a common aspect among successful actresses.

Horoscopes by Holiday BY HOLIDAY MATHIS Depending on what time they are born, some babies born today will be Aries and some will be Taurus. The sun moves into the Taurean part of the sky at 9:12 a.m. PST, making babies born beyond that point today bulls, not rams. The weeks to come bring a focus on the beauty in the world, especially that which is material in nature. ARIES (March 21-April 19). Feeling in control of your time is a key element of happiness and one you'll be grappling with today, as your loved ones need so much of your attention. Talk openly about your needs and expectations. TAURUS (April 20May 20). Your instincts drive you toward instant gratification. It's not your fault, but it is your challenge. A planning ritual will help you stay focused. What could you accomplish in order to feel productive and successful at day's end? GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You'll get the chance to compete, and you should seize this chance in the spirit of fun and
new experience. Beating the other players is far less important than doing your best. CANCER (June 22-July 22). Today you will do the same things you did yesterday, but with a new lightness of being. You're not trying to win love and approval with your actions. You're doing the things you do because it's what you enjoy. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). You like to be right, but not at another person's expense. Someone you love should have listened to you but didn't. You'll wisely resist saying “I told you so.” VIRGO (Aug. 23Sept. 22). You may not be completely in touch with what's in your mind and heart, but your feet seem to know what's going on. They take you out the door and straight to where you can get clarity and peace. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). People want to connect with you, and if they don't have a good reason to do so, they may just invent one. Knowing this, weigh each request and suggestion. Try to assess the motive behind it.
SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). You're not one to look back, and yet you can't help thinking about what you almost had. Second chances abound as long as you realize what you missed out on and are willing to try again. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). You like to see things well done, whether or not you're the one doing them. Your moneymaking faculties will be put to good use as you gather up the opportunities that others miss. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You'll love the casual way in which you connect with those you've known for a long while. It's easy and effortless, just the way you like it. Take this as a sign that these are the right people for you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). What you name things will matter a great deal. Decide on a name that will make people wonder. Give others the gift of mystery, and they'll give you the gift of curiosity. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). A certain successful person you know will be more than pleased to help
you become successful, too. Asking in the right way will be key. You'll be guided by the spirit of humility and realism. TODAY'S BIRTHDAY (April 19). You'll have new faith in yourself this year. You'll spend the next seven weeks nurturing your talents and developing a plan to bring them to the world. A family connection helps you in June. You'll be building bonds with loved ones through many shared activities. Love blossoms when you're able to focus exclusively on the other person. Libra and Scorpio people adore you. Your lucky numbers are: 5, 29, 24, 38 and 19. STRESS AND YOUR SIGN: Each sign is different when it comes to stress. What one sign considers taxing another finds exciting, and tension remedies vary from sign to sign, as well. How does your sign deal with the more unnerving aspects of life? VIRGO: GOOD STRESS: Every mess is an opportunity for cleanliness, neatness and organization. So while Virgo may have a visceral reac-

The Greatest Invitation
During our life span, we may receive a lot of invitations. However, the greatest invitation is the one given by Christ. “Come unto me, all ye that labour and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest” (Matt 11:28). The Lord’s invitation implies that may is away from God. Man is not born in sin, but sin separates one from God. “But your iniquities have separated between you and your God, and your sins have hid his face from you, that he will not hear” (Isa 59:2). Christ was despised and rejected by men, but He still extends His great invitation to all men. All who are away from the Lord are spiritually dead. “And you hath he quickened, who were dead in trespasses and sins” (Eph 2:1). It was man who left God and man must return to God. The invitation of Christ teaches that one can and must come to Him. It is man’s stubborn will that keeps him from coming to Christ. “And ye will not come to me, that ye might have life” (John 5:40). Eternal life is available to all who respond to the Lord’s invitation. “...I am come that they might have life, and that they might have it more abundantly” (John 10:10). All men are invited to come to Christ, but only those who come to Him will be benefitted. The great invitation implies that men are benefitted by coming to Christ. All who accept this invitation are forgiven according to the terms set forth in the new testament. All who refuse to come to Christ will be judged by His word. “He that rejecteth me, and receiveth not my words, hath one that judgeth him: the word that I have spoken, the same shall judge him in the last day” (John 12:48). The Lord’s invitation is the greatest invitation ever given to humanity. All are invited to accept this great invitation to be free from sin and become servants of righteousness by obeying the Lord. Those who reject the Lord’s invitation will have no one to blame except themselves. Have we accepted the Lord’s invitation and obeyed His will?

Tim Lancasterâ€™s Cheer Force squads of Corinth won three Grand Champion titles recently at the Victory Cheer Competition in Tupelo.
Cheer Force squads win top titles For the Daily Corinthian
Coach and gym owner Tim Lancaster of Corinth led all three of his Cheer Force competition squads to Grand Champion Titles recently at the Victory Cheer Competition in Tupelo at the Bancorp South Center. A Grand Champion banner means outscoring every other squad in a skill level. There are only five skill levels that include all age groups. Grand Champion is the top honor in All Star competitions. Cheer Force is an all star competition squad not to be confused with recreational squads. Recreational squads are performance only groups and are not judged for Division and Grand Champion titles. The Youth Level 1 Squad won their division and went on to win overall Grand Champion for Level 1 by defeating 16 squads. Cheer Force Level 1 Squad has brought
home top honors in every competition they have entered, including the 2011 UCA Regional in Panama City, Florida, for the past two years. Members of this squad include Baylee Cain, Elizabeth Hayes, Rachel Hayes, Trinity Heavener, Abby Lancaster, Briana Meador, Macy Moore, Molly Jane Moore, McKenzie Phelps, Lindsey Potts, Holly Ross, Sailee Weeden and Emma Williams. The Junior Level 2 squad cheered and stunted their way to a division win and overall Level 2 Grand Champ status by putting down 15 squads. Members of this squad include Baylee Cain, Miller Carlton, Kamryn Cole, Anna Kate Gaines, Carley Hopkins, Sarry-Ann Jones, Abby Lancaster, Morgan Majors, Grace Martin, Ashton Murrah, Abby Pitts, Anna Ray, Krystle Shroeder, Alli Seago, Victoria Smith, Anna Turner and Olivia Williams.
The Senior Level 3 Squad also pushed to the top by beating a full field for division and Grand Champion. Members of this squad include Paige Bradley, Jordan Cavaness, Anyaah Copeland, Abbey England, McKel Ferguson, Lindee Hill, Millie Hill, Brooke James, Hailey Johnson, Hannah Knight, Meagan Martin, Kobe McElwain, Scarlett McKay, Avery Mitchell, Katelyn Murphy, Sammi Rowland, Kameron Talley and Amanda Terwilliger. Adding to the excitement of the day, Baylee Cain tumbled her way to an individual award as Youth Top Tumbler and Lancasterâ€™s Dance Force entertained the crowded arena as they performed their debut routine. Lancasterâ€™s Cheer Force traveled to Destin, Florida recently for their final competition of the season the WSA Emerald Coast Blast.
