New year brings sharp jobless rate drop BY BRANT SAPPINGTON

Alcorn County saw another drop in its unemployment rate for January, posting a figure more than two percentage points lower than a year ago. Unemployment in the county stood at 10.7 percent for January 2012, a 0.2 percent drop

from December 2011 and 2.2 percent lower than January 2011 according to the most recent figures released by the Mississippi Department of Employment Security. The number of people employed in the county also saw a sharp rise in the past year, with 13,910 people working in

Alcorn County in January 2012 up from 13,230 employed in January 2011. Alliance President Gary Chandler said the positive employment figures are a sign that many existing industries have weathered the storm and are beginning to hire more people. He said in his visits to local em-

ployers he has seen many cases where companies are investing in expanding their workforce and their facilities as they begin to see some level of recovery. “There are definitely signs of life in our local industry,” said Chandler. He emphasized the county is certainly not where it wants

to be in terms of jobs and economic development and they are continuing to aggressively pursue new opportunities for new employers and the expansion of existing employers. Chandler said they are also extremely thankful for all of the Please see JOBS | 16

School board hears input from students BY BOBBY J. SMITH

Enjoying a sunny day

Autumn Strickland (left), 6, and Kahiland White, 1, got away from the indoors of the Boys & Girls Club to enjoy a beautiful sunny day with a book. Temperatures were in the mid 80s creating a great opportunity for all to get outside on Wednesday.

Alcorn School District Superintendent Gina Rogers Smith discussed the input she received from the district’s Student Advisory Committee at the March meeting of the Alcorn County school board. The Student Advisory Committee is comprised of students from each of the county schools. Committee members are chosen for their leadership roles in their respective schools. “We wanted their input on some upcoming things, and one of them was dress code,” Smith explained. The superintendent praised the Student Advisory Committee for its role in helping the district shape its future policy. “They were some amazing students. They spoke up, they shared, they were very complimentary to our district,” she said. “And at

the same time, when they were offering suggestions, at no time were they negative. Their school pride really was shown during this time, and you really could tell they had a concern about their classmates.” The committee’s recommendations on the district’s dress code policy will be presented during the April school board meeting. Another topic discussed by the committee was ways to combat the dropout rate. Smith said one of the main concerns of the committee was the need to provide the district’s students with more information during their final high school years. “They would like us to do a student orientation in the summer for the seniors so they — and their parents — can have more information about going into college,” the superintendent said.

Locals ready to seek fame on NBC’s ‘The Voice’ BY BOBBY J. SMITH

For a number of young local singers, the path to their dreams leads to Atlanta this weekend. Over a dozen aspiring vocalists from the Corinth area will audition for NBC’s “The Voice” at the show’s open call auditions on March 17 in Atlanta, Ga. Their experiences and backgrounds are all unique, but they share one thing in common — the desire to make their dreams come true. For Trevor Blakney, a 2006 graduate of Kossuth High School who is now a sergeant in the Mississippi National

“A plethora of great Mississippi-born talent will be shining in Atlanta this weekend.” Trevor Blakney Contestant Guard, the trip to Atlanta will be a chance to overcome the obstacles that have stood between him and his dream since he was fresh out of high school. Blakney’s journey began in 2006. Shortly after graduating from Kossuth, he traveled to Memphis, Tenn., to audition for “American Idol.” After winning a karaoke contest on Beale Street the night before the au-

dition, a homeless man stole Blakney’s wallet — which contained his identification cards. “After waiting in line for hours I finally reached the registration desk, only to be turned away for not having photo ID, due to the fact that my wallet had been stolen the night before,” Blakney remembered. His next setback was in 2010, during the year he was deployed

to Iraq with the National Guard. A friend submitted a video audition of Blakney to “America’s Got Talent.” A representative from the show called Blakney for a callback audition. “Unfortunately I was still in Iraq, and wasn’t going to be home in time to go,” he said. The next roadblock Blakney would face came in 2011, when he was getting ready to audition for “American Idol” in Houston, Texas. “After weeks of anticipation and countdowns on Facebook, it was the week of the audition. Two days before I was set to drive to Houston, my car broke down and I had to use the money for the trip to fix my car,”

Bullard uses art to mark Civil War’s 150th BY BOBBY J. SMITH

A local artist is dedicating his brush to the task of commemorating the 150th anniversary of the War Between the States with artistic renderings of the area’s historic events. Corinth native Tony Bullard’s latest painting depicts a trio of Southern generals planning the Confederate army’s strategy in shortly before the Battle of Shiloh. The three generals in Bullard’s painting — P.G.T. Beauregard, Albert Sidney Johnston and Braxton Bragg — are meeting next to the railroad crossing that made Corinth strategically important during the Civil

War. They are making plans to attack the Union army in its camp at Pittsburg Landing on the Tennessee River, near the small wooden Shiloh Church. To ensure the historical accuracy of his painting, Bullard consulted park rangers at the Corinth Civil War Interpretive Center. “I asked [Park Ranger] Tom Parsons if the three generals were ever all together, and he said they were planning together on April 4,” Bullard explained. The painting is the second in Bullard’s Civil War sesquicentennial series, following his depiction of Gen. Ulysses S. Grant at the Cherry Mansion

in Savannah, Tenn., the morning before the Battle of Shiloh. In this painting, Grant is symbolically looking south, preparing for the upcoming clash with Southern forces. In the Corinth painting, the Confederates are looking to the north, and the battle that lies ahead. “It’s basically the other side of the coin,” Bullard said. With three more years of the sesquicentennial still ahead, Bullard plans to continue producing his historical artworks and unveiling them on the actual 150th anniversary of the events he is depicting. “I want to try to get them on the day of the 150th anniversary as close as I can,” Bullard

said. Other paintings Bullard is planning include a portrayal of Grant at his Corinth headquarters; a painting which includes Confederate Gen. Nathan Bedford Forrest; a scene from the Battle of Iuka, fought Sept. 19, 1862; and a painting of Col. William P. Rogers during the Battle of Corinth. Bullard, 44, has been drawing and painting since he was “big enough to hold a pencil.” A 1985 graduate of Alcorn Central, Bullard is largely self-taught. He would practice his techniques for up to eight hours each day after getting home from school, he said. He lives in Corinth.

Blakney said. “So you can understand the frustration I had and the feeling that I had let friends and family down.” Now, in just a few days he will travel to Atlanta to the auditions for “The Voice,” and another chance to make his dreams a reality. This time he’s prepared. “My hotel room is booked and paid for, I have money set aside and my car is road ready,” Blakney said. Blakney said his expectations for the weekend are high, and he is anxious to represent his home state. “Not to mention, I have some Please see ‘VOICE’ | 16

Powerful joint pill flying off drug store shelves Clinical trial participants began to feel noticeable results in just days (UMS) – Imagine a pill that can start helping you get around more easily in just a matter of days.1,2 Then think about how great it would be for your joints to start feeling better too. Well there’s no reason to imagine, a team of scientists has developed an amazing joint health supplement that’s been clinically shown to improve mobility and joint comfort.1,4 The remarkable joint health pill is called Fast Acting Trigosamine® and consumers can’t seem to get enough of it. Demand has been incredible; consumers have already purchased over 44.7 million doses and that number just keeps growing. Why has this pill become so popular? The answer is really quite simple…because it works. Trigosamine has been clinically shown to produce amazing results; 81% of the participants started feeling better just days after taking the recommended dosage (Figure 1) and an incredible 100% reported their joints felt better just halfway through the 8 week clinical study.1,2 (FIGURE 1) CLINICAL TRIAL RESULTS

“I’ve never seen relief from a supplement like this before,” said Dr. Philip Howren.1 “I’ve been practicing medicine for a long time so believe me when I tell you for people to start getting results this quickly is pretty amazing. In fact, I use this pill myself and it’s become my number one recommendation to anyone who suffers with joint discomfort,” added Dr. Howren.4 Trigosamine is currently available at just about all of the national pharmacy retailers and PatentHEALTH, the company that developed this remarkable pill, has also set up a nation-wide order line for those readers that want it shipped directly to their homes. “We wanted to make it as easy as possible for people to get Fast Acting

How Does It Work?

Fast Acting Trigosamine combines 3 powerful ingredients that can quickly start to improve joint comfort. 4 1. HYALURONATE-13: This remarkable compound is present in synovial fluid which lubricates the joints allowing them to slide smoothly. 4

2. GLUCOSAMINE SULFATE-15: Review studies show glucosamine maintains healthy cartilage in the joints by inhibiting joint destroying enzymes while also helping to build healthy cartilage. 4

Trigosamine so we’re going to ship it directly to people’s homes,” said Eric Barker, Director of Marketing Operations for PatentHEALTH. “As an added bonus, everyone that calls the national order line at 1-866-966-3179 before the 48-hour deadline expires can also qualify for a significant discount,” said Barker. “All callers have to do is give the operator the approval code of TG17755 when they call and we’ll be sure they get their Trigosamine shipped right away,” he said. “We hear from our customers all the time how great this product is so I’m sure the phones are going to ring off-the-hook when people find out they can get it shipped to their front doors while also saving a lot of money. I recommend that people call right away so they don’t miss out on this amazing opportunity to feel better,” said Barker. Trigosamine’s formula has a special combination of ingredients that until now have never been blended into a pill. It’s this special mixture that was clinically tested and is responsible for delivering the incredible results. One of the key ingredients is Hyaluronate, which is a building block of “human joint oil” and known by medical professionals as synovial fluid. This remarkable molecule can absorb up to 1000 times its own weight in water helping to lubricate the joints which reduces friction while acting as a “shock absorber” allowing for effortless, comfortable motion. “Synovial fluid is part of what lets us be more active when we were younger without getting sore joints,” said Dr. Howren. “But as we age, our bodies produce less of this super-slippery fluid which can force bones and joints to

grind together causing nagging discomfort,” said Dr. Howren. “Trigosamine’s remarkable combination of ingredients is what makes it work so well. It’s helped me and my patients to move more freely and with greater flexibility,” added Howren.4 Trigosamine’s powerful results are all supported by an Independent Review Board-approved, randomized, double-blind, placebo-controlled clinical study which is considered to be the “gold standard” for joint health supplements. While no pill works for everyone, during this clinical trial every one of the participants that took this amazing supplement reported an improvement in their joint comfort. The data also shows that their joint comfort kept improving the entire time they were taking Trigosamine during the clinical study.1,4 On the other hand, the clinical participants taking the placebo pill experienced very different results. These individuals reported increased joint discomfort and soreness during the clinical study. This is the exact opposite result as compared to the participants that were taking Trigosamine. Further proof that this supplement works.1,4 “In all my years of practicing medicine, I’ve never seen people get this type of relief from a supplement,” said Dr. Howren. “I really recommend that people try this powerful supplement…it really is pretty amazing,” said Dr. Howren.

Why doctors are taking krill oil instead of fish oil for their heart, brain and joints Research also shows krill oil has 45 times greater antioxidant potency than fish oil By SHAWN ANTHONY Universal Media Syndicate

(SPECIAL) - If you take fish oil you need to know what doctors themselves are now taking. It’s a remarkable supplement called Astamega-3® Krill Oil and it’s now available to the general public. Research shows that Astamega-3’s active ingredients may reduce your risk of coronary heart disease, support your brain, memory, cognitive function and improve overall joint health.†* Krill are tiny shrimp-like crustacean about 2 inches long that live in the virtually pollution-free waters of the Antarctic Ocean. Although krill themselves are tiny, Astamega-3 Krill Oil packs a huge punch. You’ll only need to take one small, easy-to-swallow supplement once a day. One clinical study showed that it worked so fast that people felt an amazing 28.9% improvement in joint comfort in just 7 days. In addition, clinical testing discovered it reduced stiffness, improved flexibility and improved range of motion.* The reason that the krill oil in Astamega-3 is so effective is because your body can absorb the beneficial Omega-3 fatty acids

EPA and DHA in krill oil much faster and better than you could with fish oil.* The adva ntages of ta king Astamega-3 go beyond its Omega-3 content. It also contains Astaxanthin, which is one of the strongest antioxidants known to the scientific community. Astaxanthin amplifies the many health benefits of Astamega-3.* Krill oil possesses 45 times more antioxidant potency than fish oil and antioxidants are important because they protect your body against oxidation from free radicals. Free radicals are molecules that contribute to the aging process as well as countless health problems. Oxidation in the human body has been compared to rusting. Free radicals cause the “rust” and antioxidants attach themselves to the free radicals and neutralize them. Here’s why krill oil is better than fish oil. Fish oil is a triglyceride and a triglyceride has to go through your entire digestive system before your body can utilize the Omega-3’s. However, powerful Astamega-3 Krill Oil is almost instantly available to your body because it’s a phospholipid that is virtually identical to the cell membranes of the

human body. This perfect match allows your body to absorb krill oil faster and use its Omega-3’s much more efficiently. In fact phospholipids like krill oil are much more effective at delivering usable Omega-3’s to your body than triglyceride bound fish oil. Doctors have determined that the EPA and DHA like what is in Astamega-3 are essential for every one of the 3 trillion cells in your body. Every cell, every organ and every system in your body needs Omega-3’s to survive. Unfortunately, many people are deficient in Omega-3’s because of modern food processing and poor eating habits. That’s why Astamega-3 is so important.* The facts are in. The research is done. Krill oil supports your cardiovascular health, brain and cognitive function, joint comfort, flexibility and range of motion. It may be the biggest breakthrough ever in Omega-3 science and could be the most important nutritional supplement you’ll ever take.* For the next 48 hours readers of this publication can get a supply of Astamega-3 shipped directly to their door by calling the national toll free hotline 1-888-207-4453. N

Supports brain health & cognitive function.* Supports cardiovascular and artery health.†* May reduce the risk of coronary heart disease.†*

Supports healthy joint function.* N DOCTOR TRUSTED: The clinically tested Krill Oil in Astamega-3 has a virtually identical cell structure to the cell membranes in your body. Compared to fish oil, research shows that this advantage enables your body to absorb much more of the healthy Omega-3’s.*

State marital laws need to be updated Dearly beloved, we are gathered here today in the presence of these legislative witnesses to bring Mississippi’s marital laws into the modern times. In this holy state, our citizens find it silly to have to wait three days before tying the knot. This regulation seems to serve little purpose beyond, perhaps, an inconvenience for the betrothed from out-of-town. When our state’s laws interrupt the flow of an otherwise costly destination wedding — perhaps to Natchez bed and breakfasts — Mississippi almost certainly betrays our “Hospitality State” roots. Furthermore, as these capital witnesses can attest, sticking needles into the arms of these two lovebirds for the sake of an antiquated law is simply a silly practice of a bygone era. As legislators consider SB 2851, authored by Sen. Melanie Sojourner, D-Natchez, we hope they’ll realize that some laws are in need of a little updating from time to time. While they’re at it, we wish lawmakers would consider increasing the minimum age for marriage. At the moment, with parental permission, males who are 17 or older and females who are 15 or old can legally be wed. Call us old-fashioned, but this is not the 1850s. Few, if any teenagers are emotionally mature enough to be wed. But we digress. Nixing the waiting period and blood test requirements is a good place to start. If any person here can show just cause for why Mississippi’s antiquated laws regarding marriage license waiting periods and archaic blood test requirements should stand, let him speak now or forever hold his peace. — The Natchez Democrat

Laying groundwork for film industry Toward the end of the movie “Sunset Boulevard,” Gloria Swanson’s character famously says — at least it’s famous among film buffs — “I’m ready for my close-up, Mr. DeMille.” Mississippi is ready as well. As the Sun Herald’s Karen Nelson reports, the state wants a larger slice of this multibillion-dollar enterprise. The Legislature has put in place some of the nation’s best financial incentives and rebates for filmmakers. The state’s fledgling film industry hopes to reap the rewards of the success of “The Help,” which was filmed in Greenwood. And a fall film festival on the coast will feature not only the glitz of the movie industry but also the groundwork that needs to be laid to fully develop this sector of Mississippi’s economy. Success, we have been told, should not be measured by the occasional blockbuster, but the regular use of the state by film companies. As Wes Benton, a driving force behind this fall’s film festival, put it: “It’s better to shoot 15 $2 million films than one $30 million film, because that allows Mississippi to build a work force and to work year around.” — The Sun Herald, Biloxi

Judges have already imThis crusade by Attorney General Eric Holder posed too many legalistic and Secretary of Education procedures on schools that

are more appropriate for a courtroom. “Due process” rules that are essential for courts can readily become “undue process” in a school setting, when letting clowns and thugs run amok, while legalistic procedures to suspend or expel them drag on. It is a formula for educational and social disaster. Now Secretary Duncan and Attorney General Holder want to play the race card in an election year, at the expense of the education of black students. Make no mistake about it, the black students who go to school to get an education are the main victims of the classroom disrupters whom Duncan and Holder are trying to protect. What they are more fundamentally trying to protect are the black votes which are essential for Democrats. For that, blacks must be constantly depicted as under siege from whites, so that Democrats can be seen as their rescuers. Promoting paranoia translates into votes. It is a very cynical political game, despite all the lofty rhetoric used to disguise it. Whether the current generation of black students get a decent education is infinitely more important than whether the current generation of Democratic politicians hang on to their

jobs. Too many of the intelligentsia — both black and white — jump on the statistical bandwagon, and see statistical differences as proof of maltreatment, not only in schools but in jobs, in mortgage lending and in many other things. Some act as if their role is to protect the image of blacks by blaming their problems on whites. But the truth is far more important than racial image. Wherever we want to go, we can only get there from where we are. Not where we think we are, or wish we are, or where we want others to think we are, but where we are in fact right now. But political spin and pious euphemisms don’t tell us where we are. After a while, such rhetorical exercises don’t even fool others. If we don’t have the truth, we don’t have anything to start with and build on. A big start toward the truth would be getting rid of the kinds of statistical hoaxes being promoted by Secretary of Education Duncan and Attorney General Holder.

every single plan to increase our oil and gas production. Drilling in the Arctic wilderness? Building a pipeline from Canada down through the United States? Lifting job-killing regulations aimed at preventing oil spills in the Gulf of Mexico? Obama has been against (or kind of against) them all. He, of course, claims that the rising gas prices aren’t his fault. He says that as the recession improves, demand for oil and gas increases, driving up the price. Why, Obama even advocates conservation. Can you believe that? The man will stop at nothing. He and the wimpy environmentalists around him want us to use less oil and gas. They go so far as to suggest we travel on buses and trains. Well, you listen up, Mr. Obama, and you listen up good. We are Americans and we do not believe in buses and trains, which if I’m not mistaken are Communist ideas that originated in Europe. Did the Greatest Generation have to conserve things? Not on your life.

(Unless you count that gas rationing — along with meat, butter, and eggs — during World War II.) We patriotic Americans think that the way to happiness is drill, frack, strip mine and clear-cut our way back to $2.50-a-gallon gas. Oh, and we need to do what it takes to go back to buying soft drinks for a nickel too. And don’t tell me about global warming, that hoax perpetrated by 10 or 20,000 climate scientists who are trying to convince us that the earth is getting warmer. Don’t you know that it snowed in North Dakota just the other day? We global warming deniers have hundreds, or maybe that’s dozens, of scientists on our side saying: ■ The earth isn’t getting warmer. ■ If it is, it’s not our fault. ■ And anyway, it’s good for you. So there. Everything is good. Or it will be as soon as we get rid of Barack Obama and his $5-a-gallon gas. OtherWords columnist Donald Kaul lives in Ann Arbor, Mich. otherwords. org

State Briefs Associated Press

Indecent exposure bill passes House JACKSON — A bill that would make the third conviction of indecent exposure a felony passed the Mississippi House late Tuesday. House Bill 573 would change the penalty from a misdemeanor with a maximum of six months in prison to a felony with a minimum of one year and a maximum of five years in prison and a fine of $2,500 to $5,000. Women who are breast-feeding are exempted from the bill. Rep. Hank Zuber, a Republican from Ocean Springs, said that currently a person can be convicted for indecent exposure an unlimited number of times and never face more than misdemeanor charges. Zuber says the bill was created in direct response to a Biloxi man who has been repeatedly convicted of indecent exposure.

The bill goes to the Senate.

Businesses being recruited to Smithville SMITHVILLE — Based on preliminary reports from a community needs assessment in Smithville, local residents want a grocery store followed by a drug store and an auto parts store. That's the challenge for the Monroe County town as it approaches the one-year anniversary for an April 2010 tornado that devastated it. WTVA-TV reports that most business owners who elected to stay or set up shop as soon as possible say they are seeing a profit. Still, they would like more businesses to arrive. “Some other businesses we would like to see come into our community would be a grocery store and a drug store,” said Leigh Duncan, owner of Smithville Hardware. “Obviously, a grocery store is very important to

a community,” said Phil Prewitt, also a business owner. “Another business that would do well here would be definitely some rental property, you know, to rent out homes and things of that nature.” The recent community needs assessment gave town leaders a chance to see what residents would like to see open in the near future. They also are willing to provide that information to people outside of town considering a business in Smithville. “It will be hard for me to put a business inside right now in town knowing that I had to depend on the population inside our city limits,” said Mayor Gregg Kennedy. “We included a six-mile radius around our town to show the population that does business here in Smithville.” “This is one of the areas that can be a shining light for not only Monroe County but for the state of Mississippi,”

said Prewitt.

Warren man dies from beating VICKSBURG — Authorities in Jackson have upgraded the charges against two suspects after a Warren County man from injuries he suffered in a beating. The Vicksburg Post reports that 29-yearold Jontez Garvis and 25-year-old David Thomas are now charged with capital murder. Jackson police spokesman Colendula Green says they are being held without bond in the Hinds County jail. Sixty-one-year-old Fred Jackson died Friday at University Medical Center in Jackson, after being in a coma for 41 days. He never regained consciousness. Garvis and Thomas were charged in early February with aggravated assault and robbery in the beating.

UM faces deadline to respond to suit OXFORD — The University of Mississippi has until the end of the month to file a response to a lawsuit from a former business manager who alleges she was fired because she is black. The Oxford Eagle reports that Ginger R. Walton also alleges in federal court documents that she was also fired for refusing to participate in schemes to misuse funds. Walton's lawsuit was filed Feb. 28 in federal court in Oxford. The university has 30 days to reply. Walton began working at Ole Miss in 1993. She was promoted to business manager in 2001. Walton says she was the only black accountant in the Office of Research. She alleges she was being set up for termination. She claims she was excluded from all meet-

ings, especially planning meetings and only given limited information on decisions affecting her position and that many of her duties were given to fellow white employees. She also claims an administrator authorized the purchase of football tickets for congressional staffers; payment for travel accommodations of congressional staffers; authorized reimbursement to herself for expensive dinners, hotel lodging, airfares, gifts to and liquor for congressional staffers. In April 2011, Walton was told she was being terminated for unsatisfactory job performance, but a bad job evaluation would not be processed if she agreed to resign, which she did. In November 2011, the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission reviewed Walton's claims and reported it was unable to conclude any findings of discrimination.

Obamas give PM grill, chef jackets Associated Press

WASHINGTON — It's time for David and Samantha Cameron to fire up the barbie again — and not just any grill. President Barack Obama and his wife, Michelle, have presented the British prime minister and his wife with a wood and charcoal burning grill engraved with

American and British friendship flags. The grill came with his-and-her White House chef jackets embroidered with the Camerons' names. The White House says the gifts commemorate the Obamas' May 2011 visit to London, when the Obamas and Camerons held a cookout for

WASHINGTON — Fifty million people in America lack health insurance and the law says most of them must soon be provided coverage. But how to deliver? The Obama administration Monday finalized an ambitious blueprint for new state-based markets that will offer consumers one-stop shopping along the lines of It may sound simple enough, but getting there will be like running an obstacle course. The rule comes just two weeks before the Supreme Court takes up a challenge to the constitutionality of the law in a case brought by states. Many governors and legislators are on the sidelines awaiting the outcome, even as time is running out to act. Starting Jan. 1, 2014, new health insurance markets called “exchanges” must be up and running in every state, the linchpin of a grand plan to make health insurance accessible and affordable to those who now struggle to find and keep coverage. Individual consumers and small businesses will be able to shop online for competitively priced coverage, and many will receive government subsidies to help pay premiums. “More competition will drive down costs and exchanges will give individuals and small businesses the same purchasing power big businesses have today,” Health and Human Services Kathleen Sebelius said in a statement. Experts say it's anybody's guess how the national rollout will go. If a state is not ready, the law requires the federal government to step in to run its exchange. But the Obama administration's request for $800

million to operate federal exchanges has gotten a frosty reception from congressional Republicans. “At this point it's still an open question as to whether all the states will open up as of 1-1-2014,” said Neil Trautwein of the National Retail Federation, a business group whose members will be heavily affected by the law. Reaction on Monday to the 640-page rule was mixed. Consumer organizations, the insurance industry and some business groups gave it favorable or neutral reviews. Republican governors panned it. The new markets are for individuals and small businesses buying plans. Most people who now have employer health insurance will not have to make changes. It's a design that works well in Massachusetts, where an exchange has been in place for several years. Massachusetts achieved political consensus about its health care overhaul under former GOP Gov. Mitt Romney, who is now seeking his party's presidential nomination. That's far different from the enduring national divisions over President Barack Obama's law, even though it used Romney's as a foundation. Setting up 50 state exchanges wouldn't be easy even if the federal overhaul enjoyed widespread support. For things to go smoothly, state and federal officials must work together to verify private personal and financial details for millions of people, make sure that consumers are enrolled in the right health plan, and accurately calculate how much government aid, if any, each household is entitled to. And with customer ser-

vice the goal, consumers need to get answers in hours, not weeks. Nearly 30 million people are eventually expected to get private health coverage through exchanges, about half of whom are currently uninsured. Another group of uninsured people — as many as 16 million low-income Americans expected to qualify for Medicaid — could also enter the system through their exchanges. States are moving in fits and starts to set up the new markets. Only 13 states and Washington, DC, have adopted a plan. Progress varies widely among other rest. Under the law, most Americans will have a legal responsibility to carry health insurance, either through their job, a government program or by buying their own. Millions will receive financial assistance for their premiums. Whether that amounts to an unconstitutional expansion of federal power is among the subjects of a showdown that begins March 26, when the Supreme Court is set to begin an unusual three days of arguments. A decision is expected by June. Sebelius says she expects the court to uphold Obama's Affordable Care Act and thinks states will move quickly once the court has ruled. States have until Jan. 1, 2013 to obtain federal approval for their exchanges. Among the rule's key elements: States can receive conditional federal approval for their exchanges if their plans are far along but not final by Jan. 1, 2013. States can operate exchanges in partnership with other states. The federal government will provide funding for different types of exchanges to allow for flexibility.

Congress urges US ‘stick to plan’ in Afghanistan BY DONNA CASSATA Associated Press

WASHINGTON — Republicans and Democrats alike insist the United States should stay the course in Afghanistan, sticking to President Barack Obama's timetable for withdrawing American troops despite the massacre of Afghan civilians and the burning of Qurans — two offenses blamed on the U.S. military that have stoked antiAmerican anger. Key proponents of keeping troops in Afghanistan, like Rep. Howard “Buck” McKeon, R-Calif., say these tragic incidents shouldn't diminish the American resolve to finish a job begun more than

a decade ago. “When you look at the war through that terrible, violent act — it can seem hopeless and lost,” McKeon, the House Armed Services Committee chairman, said of the American soldier suspected of killing 16 Afghan civilians, including women and children. “But the reason we liberated Afghanistan in 2001 was right then, and it is the same reason we fight today to keep it liberated.” McKeon's argument for a continued U.S. presence in Afghanistan more than 10 years after the war began reflects the view of the nation's military commanders and was echoed

by several lawmakers, including the Senate's top Democrat and Republican. Support for the current policy puts them at odds with two Republican presidential candidates — Newt Gingrich and Ron Paul — and a growing number of Americans exasperated with the drawn-out conflict and clamoring for the 90,000 troops to come home. McKeon was scheduled to deliver his remarks in a speech Wednesday at the Ronald Reagan Presidential Library in Simi Valley, Calif. The Associated Press obtained excerpts of his remarks. The current U.S. plan calls for a drawdown of

23,000 American troops by the end of September and a complete withdrawal by the end of 2014, when Afghan forces are to take charge of the country's security. After the burning of Qurans by U.S. soldiers last month, anti-U.S. protests and the killing of at least six U.S. troops by Afghan troops, 24 senators, including Republicans Mike Lee of Utah and Rand Paul of Kentucky, wrote a letter to Obama arguing that U.S. military involvement in Afghanistan was too costly and it was time to bring American forces back. The massacre of the 16 Afghan civilians has prompted talk of accel-

erating the withdrawal of U.S. forces. Defense Secretary Leon Panetta said there has been no change in plans to complete a troop withdrawal by the end of 2014 and Obama has spoken of ending the war “responsibly.” Top lawmakers cautioned against a rush to judgment and embraced that approach. “We're drawing down in Afghanistan and we should stick by the timeline that we have,” Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., said. In a rare instance of agreement with Reid, Senate Minority Leader Mitch McConnell, R-Ky., said the situation was challenging, “but I think

we ought to stick to the plan that's been laid out by the administration.” Sen. Scott Brown, RMass., who has served more than three decades in the Army National Guard, warned against using the weekend attack to abandon the current timetable for ending the combat mission. “I don't think this issue should step us back from our overall reduction strategy, for which I support the president,” Brown told reporters. His Democratic colleague from Massachusetts, Senate Foreign Relations Committee Chairman John Kerry, said the incident should not affect the larger mission.

Downward-facing earnings? Sports apparel maker Lululemon has enjoyed strong demand for its pricey yoga, running and other athletic gear, clocking consecutive earnings and revenue increases in the first nine months of its fiscal 2011. The Canadian company reports results for the October-to-January period today, but it has already taken steps to temper expectations, issuing an earnings forecast range that could result in a smaller-than-anticipated profit.

Another rate dip?

Winnebago’s 2Q

Could mortgage rates go any lower? The average rate on a 30-year home loan has been hovering below 4 percent for three months now, making home-buying and refinancing more attractive to those who can qualify. The average rate dipped in the last week of February to 3.88 percent, its second weekly decline in a row. That’s not too far from mid-February’s average of 3.87 percent, the lowest rate since long-term mortgages began in the 1950s.

Consumers’ skittishness over big-ticket purchases last year led to softer sales for Winnebago Industries. The motor home maker’s quarterly earnings have fallen sharply the past three quarters, and Wall Street is anticipating the company will just barely avoid a quarterly loss when it reports fiscal second-quarter results today.

Eustachy humbled by NCAA return BY WILL GRAVES Associated Press

PITTSBURGH â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Larry Eustachyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s players call the Southern Miss coachâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brutal honesty his most endearing quality. Maybe itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because Eustachy has spent the last nine years taking a long, hard look in the mirror each morning being just as hard on himself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nobody thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got more scars on their fanny than me,â&#x20AC;? Eustachy said. And theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still fresh. A decade ago, Eustachy was

one of college basketballâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hottest commodities after leading Iowa State to consecutive Big 12 regular season championships in 2000 and 2001, heady territory for a program thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s traditionally flip-flopped between middling and mediocre. The fall was swift and severe. Pictures surfaced in 2003 showing Eustachy partying with college students. He was quickly out of a job and in rehab then spent a season out of coaching before resurfac-

ing at lowly Southern Miss in 2004. Eustachy never wavered in his belief he could turn the Golden Eagles into contenders in Conference USA just as heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never wavered in his vow to stay sober. Eight years later, Southern Miss is dancing and Eustachy is resurrecting his reputation one victory at a time. The ninth-seeded Golden Eagles (25-8) face eighthseeded Kansas State (21-10) in the second round of the NCAA tournament on Thurs-

day, the culmination of years of patience and progress for a man and a program thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no stranger to adversity. Luring good basketball players to Hattiesburg, Miss., can be a difficult task, so Eustachy took a different tack. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s relied on junior college transfers and players who have struggled elsewhere to fill in the gaps. In the process, heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s developed a team that mirrors its coach. The Golden Eagles are Please see EUSTACHY | 9

St. Louis Cardinals starting pitcher Chris Carpenter throws a baseball during spring training Feb. 26 in Jupiter, Fla. Carpenter is working through a bulging disc in his neck.

Game of catch lifts Carpenter BY TIM REYNOLDS Associated Press

JUPITER, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Chris Carpenter noticed a crowd was steadily building behind the chain-link fence. Seems word had spread that the St. Louis Cardinalsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ace was doing some throwing. These days, even playing a few minutes of catch is a big deal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Amazing, isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t it? Did I do OK?â&#x20AC;? Carpenter asked afterward. The reigning World Series champions certainly hope Carpenter did, since their rotation to open the season may depend on how he feels over the next few days. Carpenterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s few minutes of catch with teammate Jake Westbrook on Wednesday may be considered a positive sign for the Cardinals, who have

dealt with a flurry of injuries so far in camp â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the status of the guy who won Game 7 of last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s World Series most prominent among them. Carpenter took a spot in left field, alternating throws from between roughly 60 and 90 feet with Westbrook off the flat grass. No one, including Carpenter, can say for certain what the next step in his recovery from a sore neck caused by a bulging disc will be, and the April 4 seasonopener at the Miami Marlins is looming fast. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always frustrated if you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play,â&#x20AC;? Carpenter said after the throws. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I want to play, and I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t been able to yet this spring.

Knicks coach Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Antoni resigns amid 6-game skid Associated Press

NEW YORK â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Mike Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Antoni resigned Wednesday as coach of the New York Knicks, who are in danger of missing the playoffs when he said they should contend for a championship. Facing a late-season skid and continued questions about his relationship with Carmelo Anthony, Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Antoni put the Knicks through a morning workout shortly before news broke that he was stepping down. New York has lost six in a

row for the second time this season and has fallen into a tie for the eighth and final playoff berth in the Eastern Conference. The decision came just hours after Anthony denied there was a rift with Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Antoni. The Knicks have struggled since Anthony returned from a groin injury 10 games ago. There was speculation that he and Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Antoni did not get along, though the All-Star forward said Wednesday he supported the coach â&#x20AC;&#x153;100 percent.â&#x20AC;? The surprise resignation

first was reported by Yahoo Sports. Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Antoni seemed in good spirits Wednesday morning at the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s training center and said players were, too. He acknowledged the media frenzy around the sinking club but believed the Knicks would handle it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You battle against it. I think weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re cohesive enough to battle through this, and we expect to do that,â&#x20AC;? he said. Instead assistant Mike Woodson was preparing to coach against the Portland

Trail Blazers on Wednesday. And certainly thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s already speculation that the Knicks will try to lure a big-name coach such as Phil Jackson or Kentuckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s John Calipari next season. Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Antoniâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s departure comes less than a month after he seemed rejuvenated by the emergence of Jeremy Lin at point guard. But the success didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t last once Anthony returned, with the Knicks going 2-8 in a season that Dâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Antoni said should see them contend for a title.

EUSTACHY: Program overcomes adversity gritt y and tightknit. They’ve had to rely on that closeness during a trying 12 months. Senior forward Angelo Johnson lost his 4-year-old daughter last July to complications from sickle cell anemia. Guard LaShay Page received a phone call in his hotel room while preparing to play at UTEP last month telling him his mother died at age 38. The junior took a few days off to be with his family but missed just one game before returning, a testament to the toughness he’s developed while playing for Eustachy. “The situations coach put me through helped me deal with (her death) better,” Page said. “There were points after I got here like ‘What have I got myself into.’ But he stuck by me and he promised me it would pay off and it has.” While Eustachy would love to put the focus on the players who have guided Southern Miss to the tournament for the first time since Brett Favre was still on the football team 21 years ago, he understands his perseverance can send a message. “I think my story’s a neat story, I think it’s a great story,” Eustachy said. “I think it inspires people.” Consider Kansas State coach Frank Martin among the believers. “He’s one of those guys, he was sitting on top of the mountain and some unfortunate things took place,” Martin said of Eustachy. “He was kind of left out in the corner somewhere. He’s never quit pursuing what he loves, which is competing, getting kids to learn how to compete, winning games.” Something Martin’s been able to do with a bit more regularity at Kansas State. The Wildcats are the only team to beat Missouri twice this season and have thrived while freshman point guard Angel Rodriguez learns on the job.

Cardinals’ ace turns 37 soon

not being able to get ready for the season. So there’s always frustration. But you deal with it and move on and get ready to go.” Carpenter dealt with neck soreness last week, and was scratched from his first scheduled start of the spring on Monday because of the issue. The sense entering spring training was that the Cardinals would begin the 2012 season the same way they ended 2011, with Carpenter as the starting pitcher on the lineup card. He turns 37 next month and threw 2731⁄3 innings during last year’s regular season and playoffs, the most in baseball since Curt Schilling pitched 305 and Randy Johnson pitched 291 as the teammates who led the Arizona Diamondbacks to the 2001 World Series title. Carpenter was 11-9 in the regular season, then 4-0 in the playoffs, winning deciding games against Philadelphia in the division series and Texas in the World Series. So it was little surprise that the Cardinals took a cautious approach with Carpenter entering spring. “That’s just kind of how this game operates,” Cardinals manager Mike Matheny said. “Especially when you’ve got players who have been around a while. ... This team played 30 days longer than a lot of other teams (last season) and to discount that I think’s a mistake. Trying to push these guys through something right now still doesn’t make sense to me. They’re going to be ready when the bell rings.” Carpenter said he felt good Tuesday and that the plan was hatched for him to play catch if he showed up for work Wednesday without any setbacks.

The Dallas Cowboys have already accomplished two of their primary goals in free agency, upgrading their secondary and getting a veteran backup quarterback. Cornerback Brandon Carr, who was apparently Dallas’ top target, agreed Wednesday to a five-year deal, and quarterback Kyle Orton agreed to a three-year deal to be Tony Romo’s backup. Both played in Kansas City last season. Dallas also announced the signings of unrestricted free agent offen-

sive lineman Mackenzy Bernadeau from the Carolina Panthers to a fouryear deal, and fullback Lawrence Vickers from Houston for two years. Within hours after free agency began Tuesday afternoon, team officials visited with Carr at Cowboys Stadium. The deal with Carr came a day after twotime Pro Bowl cornerback Terence Newman, a starter all nine of his seasons in Dallas, was released by the Cowboys. Orton finished last season in Kansas City after being released by Denver.

Kentucky is making a record 53rd NCAA Tournament appearance. The Wildcats are the No. 1 overall seed even after losing to Vanderbilt in the SEC Tournament title game. … Duke gets only 45.5 percent of its scoring from made 2point field goals. That ranks 320th (out of 345 teams) in the nation. The Blue Devils get 31.4 percent of their scoring on 3-pointers and 23.1 percent from the foul line. … Baylor is in the NCAA Tournament for the second time in three years but only the third time since 1988. The Bears reached the Elite Eight two years ago, also as a No. 3 seed, by beating Sam Houston, Old Dominion and Saint Mary’s. … Indiana is back in the NCAA Tournament after a three-year absence, its longest since missing the field from 1968-72. The Hoosiers will be forced to play without senior guard Verdell Jones (7.5 ppg, 3.2 apg), who tore his ACL during the Big Ten Tournament. … Wichita State reached the Sweet 16 in 2006 (its last time in the NCAAs) as a No. 7 seed. The Shockers beat No. 10 Seton Hall and No. 2 Tennessee before losing to No. 11 George Mason. … UNLV features one of the top transfers in the nation. Forward Mike Moser, who began his career at UCLA, leads the Rebs in scoring (14.1 ppg) and rebounding (10.6 rpg). … Notre Dame went 13–5 in the Big East despite losing its best player, forward Tim Abromaitis, to a torn ACL in November.

Michigan State has a .684 winning percentage in the NCAA Tournament (52–24), which is good for eighth all-time. The Spartans have reached the NCAAs in 15 straight seasons, with six trips to the Final Four. … Missouri has won at least one game in five of its last six trips to the NCAA Tournament. Last year, the Tigers, a No. 11 seed, lost in the first round to No. 6 seed Cincinnati. … Marquette senior forward Jae Crowder was named Big East Player of the Year despite being the Golden Eagles’ second-leading scorer. Crowder averages 17.4 points and 8.1 rebounds. Senior guard Darius Johnson-Odom leads the team with 18.5 points per game. … Louisville is ranked No. 2 in the nation in defensive efficiency according to The Cardinals allow only 0.847 points per possession. The national average is 1.009. … New Mexico records an assist on 64.8 percent of its field goals, good for third in the nation. Sophomore guard Kendall Williams leads the Lobos with 4.1 assists per game. … Murray State ranks fifth in the nation in 3-point shooting percentage (.407). Senior guard Isaiah Canaan, a firstteam All-American, shoots .473 and makes 3.1 threes per game. … Florida has 15 NCAA Tournament wins in the last six seasons despite missing the field in both 2008 and ’09. The Gators won the national title in ’05 and ’06 and reached the Elite Eight last season.

Syracuse is a No. 1 seed for only the third time ever. The Orange have been a No. 2 seed five times and are one of only four No. 2s to lose in the first round. In 1991, the secondseeded Orangemen (as they were called at the time), lost to Richmond 73–69. … Ohio State doesn’t rely heavily on the 3-point shot. Only 19.5 percent of the Buckeyes’ points come from beyond the arc, which ranks 330th in the nation. … Florida State became the first team to beat both North Carolina and Duke twice in the same season since Georgia Tech did it in 1995-96. The Seminoles captured the ACC Tournament title by defeating Duke in the semis and UNC in the championship game. … Wisconsin is in the NCAAs for the 14th straight season and is a No. 4 seed for the third straight year. The Badgers lost to No. 8 Butler in the Sweet 16 last season and to No. 12 Cornell in the second round in 2010. … Vanderbilt is making its fifth NCAA appearance in the past six seasons. The Commodores made the Sweet 16 in 2004 and 2007 but lost in the first round in ’08, ’10 and ’11. … Cincinnati ranks 307th in the nation in free throw shooting, hitting only 64.1 percent from the line. Guard Sean Kilpatrick (.744) is the only regular who shoots over 70 percent. … Gonzaga is in the NCAA Tournament for the 14th straight season. The Zags have reached the Sweet 16 five times during this stretch.

It’s the Wolverines’ highest seed since they were a No. 3 in 1998. Michigan has not reached the Sweet 16 since 1994. … Temple ranks ninth in the nation in 3-point shooting, hitting .402 from beyond the arc. Owl opponents are shooting .336 from three. … San Diego State had not won an NCAA Tournament game until beating Northern Colorado and Temple on its way to the Sweet 16 last year. The Aztecs had lost in the first round in each of their previous six trips. … Saint Mary’s won the outright West Coast Conference regular-season title, snapping Gonzaga’s streak of 11 straight seasons with at least a share of the league championship. … Creighton sophomore Greg McDermott ranks fourth in the nation in scoring at 23.1 points per game.

20 years after The Shot, Laettner starts anew in D-League Associated Press

TULSA, Okla. — It is arguably the NCAA tournament’s most enduring image. With defending national champion Duke trailing by one and only 2 seconds left in an epic overtime struggle with Kentucky, Christian Laettner catches a desperation pass from threequarters of a court away. He dribbles once, whirls — and hits the game-winner. Never a doubt. Pandemonium follows. The game’s best player runs off in jubilation as the

Blue Devils head off to the Final Four. There, they’ll go on to win a second straight title. Twenty years later, through an up-and-down NBA career and an even more turbulent venture into real estate, The Shot still follows Laettner. He’ll always be the subject of “Whatever happened to ...” questions. Even more so as the NCAA tournament gets under way and especially this year, on the 20th anniversary. The answer, for now: After a three-year period dur-

ing which creditors have obtained judgments totaling more than $26 million against Laettner, a business partner and their companies, the former NBA AllStar is trying to rebuild and make a new mark in basketball — as a coach. Laettner’s job is to develop young players to the point they’re ready to play in the NBA. If he does well enough, he’ll seek his own call-up to the big leagues. “These guys are ready to go,” said Laettner, the lone assistant for the Fort Wayne (Ind.) Mad Ants of

the NBA Developmental League. “They just need a break, they need an opportunity, they need to improve maybe just a very little bit.” Laettner landed in Fort Wayne in January after some rocky times in his post-playing career. He and former Duke teammate Brian Davis run a real estate business in Durham, N.C., and built up millions of dollars in debts while redeveloping old tobacco warehouses into apartments, condos and retail space.

Since 2009, at least 10 creditors have obtained judgments against Laettner, Davis and their companies because of debts related to real estate and a failed attempt to purchase the NBA Memphis Grizzlies in 2006, court and other public records reviewed by The Associated Press show. In November 2010, Laettner’s attorney even raised the possibility of filing for Chapter 7 bankruptcy. Acknowledging his financial difficulties are a challenge, Laettner said “you’ve

just got to persevere and hang in there and use all of your relationships and connections to get through it all.” Whether or not he will succeed, there’s little doubt of Laettner’s willingness to fight. “That kid was never afraid. And he loved playing on your home court. He loved playing in big games. And, boy, when you get a great player who likes those moments, I mean, you’re going to win a lot,” said Duke coach Mike Krzyzewski.

Sam fabricates the problem â&#x20AC;&#x201D; probably remost outlandish stories lated to insecurity â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that and never owns up to any- causes him to lie to get at-

Until heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ready to admit to himself that he has damaged his credibility so badly that no one believes a word he says, nothing will change. DEAR ABBY: My close friend â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kateâ&#x20AC;? has just told me sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting a divorce. She confided that she cheated on her husband, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Phil,â&#x20AC;? and says she doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to try to work on her marriage, even though they have a baby together. Kate says that Phil is a great father and heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not abusive â&#x20AC;&#x201D; she just doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t love him anymore. This came as a shock to me, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure how

to be supportive. When I divorced, my husband was the one who cheated and left me, so I know how Kateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband feels. I know I should be sympathetic to her, but I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know what to say. Can you help? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; TRYING NOT TO JUDGE DEAR TRYING: Continue trying not to judge. It is understandable that youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d identify with Kateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s husband since his position is so similar to what you experienced. If you know and like him, befriend him. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure he could use a friend right now. However, before you do, ask Kate if she would mind. As to your question about what to say to her, all you really need to do is acknowledge her

My father just started paying child support three years ago for my twin sister and me. He only pays a small amount each month, and he has never paid any medical or health bills for either of us in our lives. Recently we found out he lied about his monthly salary so he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to pay for us. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really hurt because I feel like he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about us. How do I cope? Help! â&#x20AC;&#x201D; INCREDIBLY HURT IN THE SOUTH DEAR INCREDIBLY HURT: While I can understand your disappoint-

His behavior shows that he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care about anyone but himself. Now that you and your mother know he lied about his income, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible the child support he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pay can be collected retroactively. If your mother hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t discussed this with an attorney, she should do it now.

When itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not fun, you shine because you try to make it fun anyway. TAURUS (April 20May 20). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll learn more from what you did wrong in the past than you will from what you

did right. It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a pessimist; it just means youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re human. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). You may not be fully aware of your attention needs now. You want people to notice you because you get a lift from the energy that comes from eyeballs and intentions being focused on you. CANCER (June 22July 22). You deserve the luxury of quality help. You need people around you who have experience in the area you want to master. Seek the best, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what you will find. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Greatness doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t happen overnight. Take the pressure off of yourself. Be content with minor results for now. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much that can be accomplished if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re willing to start small and build

gradually. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a better person because of the way you reach out. A compassionate energy radiates from you. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a kindness in your tone of voice that resonates with all who hear you. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Your problem may seem of little or no consequence to someone else. That doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make it any less real to you. Can you step outside of yourself and split the difference? SCORPIO (Oct. 24Nov. 21). You need people in your life who can fill in your blanks with the appropriate skills. Realize your deficiencies, and celebrate them. They give you an excuse to bond tightly with others. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21). Your com-



mitment to a friendship will shape your day. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll act out of loyalty and a sense of justice. Tonight, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll enjoy a boost of special appeal, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll attract the one you want. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). You have added value to a group and will continue to add value. Share your good ideas, and present yourself in the best light. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not bragging if your primary intention is to help others. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). You could save someone from making an embarrassing mistake. Indeed, you wish someone had done the same for you. Whether or not the other person takes your help is another story. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). The tasks necessary to keep your life running

Washington County educators say 70 may not graduate Associated Press

GREENVILLE — Education leaders in Washington County say as many as 70 seniors may not graduate this year. The Delta Democrat Times reports that represents 10 percent of the total number of seniors in the public schools. In the Greenville Public School District, Greenville-Weston High School has the largest senior class in the county with 338 students. Deputy Superintendent Leeson Taylor II says 50 seniors are in jeopardy of not marching with their classmates in May if they do not meet the state criteria. “Unless those 50 seniors take advantage of our resources such as Saturday school, before and

after-school remediation and our supplemental tools for state test taking strategies — then they will not graduate,” Taylor said. Hollandale School District’s James JohnsonWaldington said his district has 711 students — 44 are seniors, and three seniors have not met graduation requirements. “We have full faith and courage in our teachers and students that every child will not only pass the state required tests, but they will graduate on time as well,” said Johnson-Waldington. Leland High School Principal Kermit McAdory said his senior class consists of 87 seniors, and 85 percent are on track and have met graduation requirements.

ELECTION: Campaigns continue CONTINUED FROM 3

Steven Palazzo all won nomination. Like Wicker, they defeated tea party challengers who said incumbents hadn’t done enough to fight Obama. “Do we want to continue the failed policies of two years ago?” said the 1st District’s Alan Nunnelee, who had the closest race of the incumbents. U.S. Rep Bennie Thompson, Mississippi’s lone congressional Democrat, promised to do more to raise the standing of his district.

All five candidates face foes from the other major party as well as minor party candidates, but all have advantages in money and name recognition. Albert N. Gore won the Democratic Senate primary to face Wicker, while Michael Herrington won the Democratic primary in the 4th District. Nunnelee, a first-term representative from Tupelo, won a comfortable majority over Henry Ross of Eupora and Robert Estes of Southaven in north Mississippi’s 1st District.

JOBS: Alcorn ranked 34th lowest CONTINUED FROM 1

existing industries that have remained committed to the workforce in Alcorn County and continue to provide opportunities for the people of the area. Mississippi’s statewide unemployment rate fell to 9.9 percent for January, the first time it has fallen below 10 percent since September 2009. Alcorn County also continued to post one of the lowest unemployment

rates in the area. Among surrounding counties, Alcorn was tied with Prentiss for the lowest figure at 10.7 percent. Tishomingo County posted the next highest figure for January 2012 at 12.4 percent. Tippah County continued to have the area’s highest rate at 12.6 percent. Alcorn County ranked 34th lowest among counties in the state for unemployment in January 2012.

SCHOOL: Panel draws praise CONTINUED FROM 1

Smith said she was “really pleased” with the dis-

trict’s Student Advisory Committee. “I can’t compliment them enough,” she said.

‘VOICE’: Hopeful singer gets inspiration from source close to home CONTINUED FROM 1

great friends that I’ve gotten to know well over the past year that are also going to audition as well,” he said. “A plethora of great Mississippi-born talent will be shining in Atlanta this weekend.” Mandy Shaw has been waiting her whole life for an opportunity like this. The 21-year-old country music singer said she strives to be as great as some of her favorite artists. Shaw has been singing since she was old enough to talk, she said. “I started out singing in church, school functions, ceremonies, and went on to win various local and distant competitions,” Shaw said. Shaw said she is looking to a higher power as

she takes this next step. “I am so excited to audition, and I pray to the good Lord above that I make it past the callbacks on to the actual blind auditions,” she said. “Without God’s help and guidance I wouldn’t be where I am today.” On her trip to the Atlanta auditions Shaw will be joined by her younger brother Jonathan. Both Shaw siblings — who sing and write original material together — will try out for “The Voice.” Shaw said her biggest inspiration comes from her biggest fans — her family. “My family has been a huge inspiration to me as far as singing goes and most importantly, my biggest fan, my son JonTyler, which keeps me

motivated to reach my goals in life,” Shaw said. Another hopeful singer headed to the auditions gets her inspiration from a source close to home. Mollie Pace, the 23-year-old night shift manager at Crossroads Quickstop, said she hopes the experience will encourage her daughter to chase her dreams. “I have an amazing family that raises me up when I feel discouraged, and I just want to instill that into my daughter, Greenlee,” Pace said. Greenlee and her mother sing together all the time — while cleaning the house, riding in the car or playing with Barbie dolls together. Mollie sings and Greenlee follows suit. Pace is heading to

Atlanta with plenty of “heart” and a song of hope playing in her mind. “I may not be the most experienced. I may not be the most talented, but I have heart,” Pace said. “Maybe I’m insane for going up against thousands of people for just a few select spots on TV, but all I’ll see is Greenlee’s face when I step under those bright lights, and all I hear is Travis Tritt saying ‘You’re gonna be somebody someday — you can bet your hard-earned dollar she will.’” The Atlanta auditions for “The Voice” will be held March 16-17 at the Atlanta Convention Center at AmericasMart.
