Law enforcement plans ‘Drug Take Back Day’ BY JEBB JOHNSTON

This Saturday is the time to take a look in the medicine cabinet and pluck out the unwanted, unneeded and outdated pills. Local law enforcement agencies are offering a chance to safely dispose of medications on Saturday as part of the Drug Enforcement Administration’s Take Back Initiative. The opportunity is offered with “no questions asked.” The event is set for 10 a.m.

until 2 p.m. and will include two drop-off points in Alcorn County — the sheriff’s department at the new justice center on South Harper Road and the new Medical Plaza on Harper pharmacy. The Corinth Police Department has partnered with the pharmacy for the event. In Iuka, the Tishomingo County Sheriff’s Department is participating. Pharmacist Bart Doran of Medical Plaza said it is a good opportunity to safely dispose of un-

used medications left over from previous illnesses, prescription changes or the death of a family member. “Prescription medications are intended for the person for which they were originally prescribed,” he said. “Any other use is against federal law.” Detective Capt. Ralph Dance of the Corinth Police Department said the DEA will take possession of the collected drugs and destroy them.

“Nobody needs to know who or where it came from,” he said. At the take back event, citizens can drop off prescription and over-the-counter medications in pill and liquid form. Liquids should be tightly sealed in the original container. Identifying information should be removed from prescription pill bottles. Intravenous solutions, injectables and needles will not be accepted. The DEA says throwing away

pills by flushing them down the toilet can be hazardous to water supplies, and throwing them in the trash may lead to the pills being diverted and abused. The majority of abused prescription drugs are obtained from family and friends and often from the home medicine cabinet, according to DEA. The last take back event held across the country in October saw people turn in 188 tons of prescription drugs.

Boosters plan event to purchase new uniforms Area libraries close for system upgrade BY BOBBY J. SMITH

A fundraiser is planned to help the Kossuth High School Band become as competitive visually as it is musically. The fish plate sale fundraiser to raise money for new KHS Band uniforms will be held Friday, May 3, at the American Legion in Corinth. “They’re in dire need of new uniforms,” said KHS Band Booster and Treasurer Amanda Caldwell. “Our uniforms are pitiful. They’ve been worn forever and have holes. These kids need new uniforms.” For the first time in four years, the band competed on the state level, finishing fifth in the 3A competition, said Band Director David Hopple. The band also did well at the Northeast Mississippi Community College Indoor Championship. “We’re had a really great, successful year,” Hopple said. “Our band has really gone above and beyond this year,” Caldwell agreed. The fundraiser will be held from 4 to 6 p.m. Each $8 plate will include four fillets, hushpuppies, slaw, drink and dessert. Seating is available or plates can be purchased Submitted photo to go.

All libraries of the Northeast Regional Library System are closing their doors Monday and Tuesday for an upgrade of the circulation database. The libraries will reopen on Wednesday. “No items will be due on those two days,” said Corinth Librarian Ann Coker. Renewals will not be available through the on-line catalog on those days. “This change is a necessary update of the present system, which was installed in the late 1990s,” said Coker. “Patrons who use the on-line catalog to browse, request and renew their items will also notice a change.” It should be a more user-friendly experience, she said. Regional staff members have been undergoing training for the new Symphony software system by the SirsiDynix Corporation. The affected branches are in Alcorn, Tishomingo, Prentiss and Tippah counties. The Corinth Library’s wireless Internet will continue to be available during the closing. In other library happenings, Coker encourages readers to check out the ongoing Corinth Friends of the Library book sale inside the library, which offers great deals on hardcovers, paperbacks, audio books and movies. Donations are accepted anytime. The sale helps expand the library’s offerings. The library has a preschool story hour each Thursday at 10 a.m. and hosts art exhibits year-round.

Iuka Heritage Day weekend includes largest reenactment in years BY JEBB JOHNSTON

IUKA — “The fight began and was waged with a severity I have never seen surpassed.” Those words from Major General Sterling Price summed up the fierce Battle of Iuka, which will come to life later this year as Iuka holds its largest reenactment event in many years. Organizers are seeking reenactors and sutlers to get involved as Iuka aims to capture its share of Civil War Sesquicentennial tourism on Labor Day weekend. The event is combining with the annual Heritage Day Festival

for a spirited weekend of activities from Friday, Aug. 31 through Sunday, Sept. 2. A large site off Chicken Run Road will host the battle, which is set for 2 p.m. on Sept. 2. Iuka’s last major battle reenactment was 25 years ago. Debbie Brown, who is helping to promote the event, promises some interesting twists, such as participation by Fielding Tyler, a descendant of Confederate General Henry Little, who was killed in the battle and temporarily buried in the rose garden at Twin Magnolias. “His great-great-great-nephew

has his diaries and his sashes,” said Brown. “He has donated them temporarily to our museum. He is going to be participating not only in the weekend activities but also in the battle reenactment. That’s going to be really special.” There’s also the story of George Washington’s cousin “three times removed” who was wounded in the battle. “A Methodist minister took him in,” said Brown. “He ended up dying. Rather than ship him back home, they buried him in the minister’s plot.” He was later moved to the Oak Grove Cemetery, where today

a marble monument marks his resting place. Part of the activities set for Friday is a military escort of Little’s body along Quitman Street. The evening will include a luminary event in the historic downtown with greetings from Gov. John M. Stone. Saturday events will include living history demonstrations at various locations, a Battle of Iuka descendants reunion and banquet (registration available online), mass grave roll call at Shady Grove Cemetery and grand ball at Dr. Kitchen’s farm at Mill Creek. Encampments of reenactors

are planned at the battle site and near Mineral Springs Park’s festival area. The stage was set for the Battle of Iuka on Sept. 18, 1862, as 3,000 Confederate soldiers camped in and around the town while a large force of Union soldiers threatened from Burnsville. One in three would die, for a total of 2,000 casualties. The fee for reenactors and sutlers is $10, which includes the Saturday evening dinner and grand ball. See for the full itinerary and for reenactor, sutler and civilian registration.

Storage buildings showcase technology students’ talents BY BOBBY J. SMITH

The Alcorn Career and Technology Center has two 8-by-12 storage buildings for sale. They were built by Fred Jackson’s Construction classes during the spring semester. “We start work on them in January and try to get them out by April or the first of May,” explained Jackson. Each year Jackson’s two Construction classes produce one storage shed apiece. The construction of the storage buildings is the more advanced portion of the course. During the fall semester, students work on smaller projects to learn about tools and safety — and to prepare for working on the storage buildings during the spring semester. “We start out small and work our way up,” he said. Students learn a wide range of skills working on the storage

buildings, Jackson said. “They learn everything from the ground up,” Jackson explained. “They lay out the foundation and floor, frame the walls, do the roof and the roof trusses, and build either a metal roof of put on shingles. They make the gables, all the trim work.” The buildings currently available for purchase are constructed with metal roofs. Jackson’s class will also build custom orders for the cost of materials. Anyone interested in lining up a custom order should contact Jackson at the beginning of the fall semester. If requested, the class will equip the custom-ordered buildings with electrical wiring and receptacles, Jackson said. Other custom-built projects available for public purchase are the smaller items made by

Good mental health is within most people’s reach, according to Dr.Wanda Hill at Crossroads Center for Emotional Care at Magnolia Regional Health Center. “Good mental health is largely a matter of awareness and prevention,� said Dr. Hill. “Even though most mental illnesses are biologically-based, there are steps people can take to prevent mental illness from occurring, or getting worse.� According to Dr. Hill, anxiety and depression are the most common mental illnesses. She said that knowing the signs and symptoms of these, and other illnesses, and knowing when, where and how to ask for help are the keys to successful prevention and treatment. Children may exhibit different signs and symptoms than adults, she said. That’s because children may act out their fears, worry or sadness rather than talk about it. Warning signs of mental illness in younger children can include changes

in school performance; fear, anxiety or worry that prevents them from taking part in normal activities; nightmares; hyperactivity, and unusual aggression or tantrums, she added. Older children may abuse substances, exhibit excessive anger or fear, experience a change in eating or sleep patterns, have difficulty coping with relationships, school or other routine activities, complain of physical ailments, or exhibit unusually defiant behaviors, noted Dr. Hill. Adults may have confused thinking, prolonged sadness or hopelessness, extreme mood changes, social withdrawal, substance use, difficulty coping with daily routine, intense fear or worry, uncontrolled anger, unexplained physical ailments, or have suicidal thoughts, she explained. If these, or other unusual or troubling behaviors, persist for two weeks or more, it may signal a mental illness that, with timely treatment, can be successfully managed or cured.

“With proper treatment,� said Crossroads Medical Director Dr. Jan Osborne, “70 to 90 percent of people with mental illness experience significant improvement in their symptoms and quality of life.� Dr. Osborne said there are a few simple things that people can incorporate into their lives to help maintain good mental health. “For starters, take care of your physical health because it’s all connected,� Dr. Osborne emphasized. “Proper nutrition, plenty of rest, exercise, and moderate caffeine and alcohol use will pay off in extra energy and an improved outlook on life.� Dr. Osborne suggested establishing a regular meditation or exercise practice. “Solitary, or with a group, what’s important is that you take time away from the hectic pace of your daily routine,� she explained. Nurture your friendships. It’s well known that the support and companionship of others enhances people’s health and longevity.

McNairy sets general election BY JEFF YORK For the Daily Corinthian

SELMER, Tenn. — The field of candidates has been set for the general election in McNairy County with the county mayor’s race expected to attract the most attention. The election will be held August 2. A lack of competitive races on the ballot will likely mean a low turnout for the election. The only two county offices on the ballot are county mayor and tax assessor. McNairy County Circuit Court Clerk Ronnie Brooks will be running as a Democrat against Republican Tom Cauley for county mayor. Cauley is now Wayne County’s Economic Development Coordinator. Current McNairy County Mayor Wilburn Gene Ashe committed to not seek another term in office when he was voted in as an interim replacement for

Jai Templeton, who resigned the position in May 2011. Templeton is now Tennessee’s Deputy Commissioner for Agriculture. Incumbent Betty Ashe (R) will try for another term in office as tax assessor and will face the challenge from county commissioner Keith Jernigan (D). There will be two county commissioners on the ballot and both of them are unopposed. Ashe will regain his old post as 6th district commissioner and Fred Carroll will be voted in to serve the 2nd district. Carroll had to resign as commissioner to serve a temporary stint as McNairy County’s Director of Schools. He was later voted back to his position by the full county commission. Ashe and Carroll will each serve a two-year term in office until the next county election is

held in 2014. There are three school board positions on this ballot and only one has opposition. Larry Smith, incumbent in the 1st district, will face Jessica D’Orio. Ricky Whitaker will replace Kevin Isbell in the 4th district and Lynn Baker will again represent the 7th district on the school board. McNairy County Administrator of Elections Joanie Collins said early voting for the August election will be held July 13-28. Deadline to register to vote in the election is July 2. The county will help elect a new state representative after being moved to a new district by the Tennessee Legislature. They will vote for either Barrett Rich (R) or John Bragorgos (I). Delores Grisham (R) will square-off with Meryl Rice (D) in the State Senator’s race. Gresham is the incumbent.

Corinth, Miss.


Gender gap is smaller than being reported BY DICK MORRIS AND EILEEN MCGANN The Democratic PR machine has convinced the mainstream media that the Republicans have so alienated American women that a huge gender gap is looming, which will propel Obama into a second term in the White House. The data show how fatuous this claim is. Rasmussen's polling — the best because he samples likely voters — shows Romney running 12 points better among men than among women. But, in the presidential election of 2008, Obama actually did carry women by 12 points more than men (he won women by 13 points and men by 1 point). So there is, indeed, no growth in the gender gap. In fact, the gender gap is smaller now than it has been in recent history. In 2004, 2000, and 1996, the gender gap was larger than it is in the Rasmussen poll -- and in the election of 2000, it was much larger. Gender Gap In Recent Presidential Elections Year Percent By Which Women Voted Democrat More than Men 1996 15 points 2000 22 points 2004 14 points 2008 12 points Current Rasmussen Pol: 12 points So, at the start of the Romney campaign, he is running better among women than Dole did or Bush did in either of his national races. The Democrats hope that by duping their always susceptible mainstream media allies that they can spread propaganda about the gender gap in the hopes of provoking one by reporting one. But the fact is that Romney's defeat of Santorum in the GOP primaries has established a basis for women trusting Romney not to go overboard on social issues. In a real sense, the Democratic campaign strategy has never adjusted to the fact that Romney is the nominee, not Santorum or Gingrich. With the contraception issue and the Pennsylvania senator's unique views on separation of church and state, the Democrats were eager to run against Santorum. And with the legacy of Gingrich's government shutdown hanging over his head, they wanted to run against Newt. But it is not going to happen. The Democrats will find it is futile to paint Romney as anti-woman or to bill him as a Neanderthal extremist who will subject needy people to what one commentator called a “reign of terror” with budget cuts. It just doesn't fit with Romney. Instead, Romney's campaign has skillfully spoken of the vastly disproportionate job loss among women during the Obama Administration. Fully 92 percent of the employment losses in his three disastrous years have been in jobs held by women. One reason for the artificially low unemployment rate we now see is that more than 20 million people have left the labor force since Obama took office. A great many of these are women who have elected to accept a lower income, discontinue daycare, and stay at home with their children once they have lost their jobs. It will not fail to dawn on these mothers that Obama took away their choice by subjecting them to ruinous economic policies. In 1996, the Dole campaign never got used to the fact that they were opposing the Bill Clinton who signed welfare reform, set the budget on a track to balance, and cut capital gains taxes. Instead, they wanted to run against the old version of Clinton -- the liberal big spender who had lost the election of 1994 to Gingrich's forces. Similarly, the Obama campaign has never made the pivot from facing Santorum or Gingrich to opposing Romney. Their rhetoric about the savage Tea Party right is just obsolete, and they can't let go of it. To do so would be to require them to do the one thing they cannot possibly afford to do: Run on Obama's record.

Colson’s faith rose above politics After Richard Nixon lost the 1960 presidential election to John F. Kennedy and the California governor's race two years later (when he uttered the immortal line to the media, “You don't have Nixon to kick around anymore”) the former vice president knew he must reinvent himself to run for president again in 1968. Cal Thus was Thomas born “the new Nixon,” Columnist an attempt to transform himself from “the old Nixon” the public didn't like, into a warmer, softer, more approachable person. As it turned out, the “new Nixon” was simply the “old Nixon” with a new coat of political paint. Not so with Charles W. Colson, who died last Saturday at age 80. Colson, was an ex-Marine and Nixon's “hatchet man” who enjoyed going to any lengths to ensure his boss got his way, including re-election in 1972, as the Watergate scandal was just breaking. No one doubted Colson's political shrewdness. Here's an example. He once told me that Nixon wanted a book hyped because it ex-

posed what he considered bias at CBS News. Colson said he obtained the supposedly secret list of bookstores The New York Times used to determine its “best sellers” and then sent people into those stores to buy the book, which made the New York Times list for one week before disappearing. But, said Colson, Nixon was satisfied. That and more occurred before the “new” Charles Colson was born ... again. Unlike Nixon who sought to transform himself by his own political strength and for an earthly agenda, Colson was transformed by a higher power and not by his own efforts. First, though, he had to descend to the depths. He told James Rosen of Fox News that after being a Marine captain and a White House special counsel, the “worst blow of his life” was standing in the federal courthouse in Washington, D.C., and hearing a court officer speak the words, “The United States vs. Charles W. Colson.” Colson plead guilty in 1974 to an obstruction of justice charge relating to attempts to discredit Daniel Ellsberg, a former Marine and military analyst, who three years earlier had released “The Pentagon Papers,” a top-secret account

of U.S. military activities during the Vietnam War, to The New York Times. Colson served seven months in federal prison, but before he went to jail, he said he accepted Christ as payment for his sins. The world was stunned. Some laughed in derision, thinking Colson was trying to obtain a “stay out of jail” card. Others said none of the Nixon officials should be forgiven for their “high crimes and misdemeanors.” When Colson got out of prison he founded Prison Fellowship, a Christian organization that recruits volunteers to “visit those in prison” in response to the command of Jesus, conduct Bible studies behind prison walls and help ex-convicts find jobs after their release so they won't return to crime and jail. It has worked. According to Prison Fellowship (www., prisoners who take part in their faith-based programs have a much lower recidivism rate than other prisoners. In 1983, Colson established Justice Fellowship, a Christian-based criminal justice reform group. Through Justice Fellowship, Colson became a leading prison reformer, taking positions one doesn't usually associate with Republicans.

He criticized the death penalty, mostly for being unequally applied (though he believed in it for rare cases). He opposed the incarceration of nonviolent, non-dangerous offenders, believing restitution was a more redemptive approach for both perpetrator and victim. I once asked him if he would ever seek a pardon. He replied, “I have the only pardon I need,” referring to God. In 2000, he accepted a restoration of his civil rights from then-Governor Jeb Bush of Florida, but was never pardoned by a president. President George W. Bush awarded him the Presidential Citizens Medal in 2008 for his work in prisons. In one of his many books, “Who Speaks for God?” Colson warned against attaching a heavenly kingdom to the political agendas of the age. He also urged Christians to think and act more like Jesus. In 1973, when news of Colson's conversion became public, The Boston Globe editorialized, “If Mr. Colson can repent of his sins, there just has to be hope for everyone.” To which the “new” Charles Colson would undoubtedly shout, “Amen!” (Readers may email Cal Thomas at

John Edwards is slimy, not criminal A new CBS News poll found John Edwards has a 3 percent approval rating, in a survey with a 3-point margin of error. It is possible no one approves of the disgraced former politician. He is now on trial for allegedly violating campaignfinance laws in an elaborate scheme to cover up his love child during his 2008 campaign for the DemoRich cratic presiLowry dential nomination. Lots National Review of husbands cheat on their wives. Fewer do it while their wives are fighting a losing battle with cancer. Fewer still — in fact, only one comes to mind — do it while using their wife's grave illness and their attractive young family as credentials in a presidential campaign. If Edwards were being prosecuted for shameful dereliction of duty as a husband and father, he'd deserve 30 years of hard labor. If he were on trial for extreme oleaginous insincerity, he'd de-

serve to be sent to the nearest supermax prison. If he could be charged with running two faux populist presidential campaigns (first in 2004, then in 2008) that were all about stroking his own ego, he'd deserve to hang at dawn. None of these things is a criminal offense, though. And neither is paying hush money to your mistress. In the case of United States of America v. Johnny Reid Edwards, it is the United States of America that is out of line. Two Edwards backers, heiress Rachel “Bunny” Mellon and the late trial lawyer and Edwards crony Fred Baron, provided payments to help Edwards cover his slimy tracks. Almost a million dollars went to Edwards' mistress, Rielle Hunter, and to lackey Andrew Young, who claimed paternity of Edwards' love child with Hunter in an act of twisted and selfabasing loyalty to his boss. The government contends that the payments constituted campaign contributions in violation of federal limits on donations. The obvious hitch in this charge is that the money didn't go to the Edwards campaign and

wasn't used by the Edwards campaign. Paying off your mistress is not a campaign expense, not even in 21stcentury America, not even in Louisiana. Of course, news of the affair with a flaky, star-struck videographer would have sunk candidate Edwards faster than it took him to get one of his $400 haircuts. But he had a more elemental reason to keep his secret: to prevent his reputation from getting torn to shreds, regardless of his presidential campaign. If he had once again been a sitting U.S. senator, or a prominent trial lawyer in North Carolina, he surely would have been just as determined to hide his disgrace. As it happens, the payments and Edwards' lies continued after his exit from the presidential race. Dishonesty and betrayal weren't campaign activities for Edwards; they were a way of life. Even the campaign-finance obsessives at Citizens for Responsibility and Ethics in Washington (CREW) consider the case an overreach. CREW points out an absurdity that follows from

the government's argument. If keeping Rielle Hunter quiet is rightly considered a campaign expenditure, as the prosecutors maintain, then the Edwards campaign could have funded her living expenses directly without breaking any rules. “Love child” could have been a legitimate line item in the budget somewhere between “get out the vote” and “phone banks.” The prosecution is a naked exercise in attempting to punish a loathsome man for his loathsomeness. As such it is an offense against the rule of law, which depends on clear rules and dispassionate judgments. Every wrong -even flagrant wrongs, played out in public and involving mind-boggling deceit -- is not a crime. By stretching the laws to try to reach Edwards, the government is creating the predicate for future ambiguous, politicized prosecutions, perhaps of figures much less blameworthy than the reviled man currently in the dock. John Edwards belongs under a rock, but not in jail. (Rich Lowry is editor of the National Review. )

House approves redistricting plan JACKSON — House Republicans have pushed through a redistricting plan that critics say would cut the number of white Democrats in the 122-member body. House members voted 70-49 Thursday for the plan. House Elections Chairman Bill Denny, a Jackson Republican, says the changes preserve black-majority districts and reflect population shifts since the last Census. The vote came after a long debate that at times seemed most about Democrats laying the groundwork for a lawsuit. The debate included a vote that turned down an alternative map offered

by Rep. Omeria Scott, a Laurel Democrat. Republicans, holding a majority for the first time since Reconstruction, drew a map matching five pairs of House members. Of those pairings, four are likely to eliminate a sitting Democrat, and one is likely to eliminate a Republican.

Two men arrested in burglary attempt BALDWYN — Authorities say two men have been arrested on suspicion of attempting to burglarize a Baldwyn pharmacy. Mississippi Bureau of Narcotics Director Marshall Fisher said Thursday in a news release that both men are already on probation and are now facing new felony charges. They were

arrested Tuesday near Medical Arts Pharmacy after it alarm went off. They are 30-year-old Lenardo R. Heard and 27-year-old Christopher L. Freeman. Lee County Justice Court Judge Sadie Holland has set each man’s bond at $50,000.

Oxford Square eyes prepaid parking OXFORD — The city of Oxford is moving toward implementing a system that will allow people to prepay to park along the Square for extended periods without getting a ticket. Downtown Parking Commission member Jeff Triplette tells the Oxford Eagle that the commission and the city want to solve parking problems on the Square.

Triplette said the commission and the board of aldermen will meet May 15 to look at a proposed contract with Chicago-based Standard Parking Corp. to manage the parking around the Square. The contract could come up for vote by aldermen on June 5. The proposal is for Standard to install several pay stations around the Square. The stations will be solar powered and take debit and credit cards and coins. They will not be able to take dollar bills because they can’t give change. “We expect some people might be upset we aren’t going with pay stations that take (paper) currency,” Triplette said. “But there’s just too much liability and maintenance for those

machines. Someone will put in a $20 bill and expect change and they aren’t going to get it.” Triplette said if aldermen also adopt the commission-proposed prepaid parking card, the pay stations will accept those as well.

Jones says higher tuition concern TUPELO — University of Mississippi Chancellor Dan Jones fears rising tuition will put a squeeze on middle-class families. Jones says higherincome individuals can afford the tuition, and lower income families are aided by federal Pell Grants and the Ole Miss Opportunity Scholarship, which helps students whose family income is $30,000 or less. “I’m very concerned

about the middle class and the ability of the middle class to effectively have access to higher education,” he told the editorial board of the Northeast Mississippi Daily Journal. Jones said the need for state funding is greater in a poorer state like Mississippi because it allows universities to keep tuition costs down. The state College Board last week gave tentative approval to a tuition increase of nearly 7 percent over the next two years. State funding to universities has been cut about 15 percent in the last four years. “The poorer the state, the more difficult or challenging it is,” said Jones. “It becomes more difficult for students to seek higher education.”

Puppy on runway delays several flights Associated Press

NEW YORK — A puppy named Byrdie delayed several flights at New York’s LaGuardia Airport when she escaped from her crate and frolicked around a runway.

The Port Authority says the Rhodesian ridgeback scampered around the runway for about 10 minutes on Wednesday. The agency says they had to find the pooch’s owner aboard the Mem-

phis-bound Delta Air Lines Airbus to help catch it. The owner was brought out on to the runway. She called out to the 14-month-old pup and she came running to her.

Cybersecurity bill procceds in House WASHINGTON — House Speaker John Boehner on Thursday defended a cybersecurity bill as a common-sense approach to stopping electronic attacks on critical infrastructure and companies. He rejected the Obama administration’s criticism that the measure could lead to invasion of Americans’ privacy. “The White House believes the government ought to control the Internet, government ought to set standards and government ought to take care of everything that’s needed for cybersecurity,” Boehner, R-Ohio, told reporters at his weekly news conference. “They’re in a camp all by themselves.” The administration has threatened to veto the bill, which the House began considering Thursday. The bipartisan bill would encourage corporations and the government to share information collected through the Internet to thwart attacks from foreign governments, terrorists and criminals. The information sharing would be voluntary. The administration wants the Homeland Security Department to have the primary role in overseeing domestic cybersecurity.

Biden faults Romney on foreign policy NEW YORK — Vice President Joe Biden delivered a harsh attack Thursday on Mitt Romney’s foreign policy views, arguing that the presumptive Republican presidential nominee is rooted in a Cold War mentality and is uninformed about the current challenges facing the U.S. abroad. In a campaign speech delivered at New York University Law School, Biden laid out a robust defense of President Barack Obama’s foreign policy record while eviscerating Romney for lacking vision and for “distorting” Obama’s record in a way that has been counterproductive to U.S. interests. “If you’re looking for a bumper sticker to sum up how President Obama has handled what we inherited, it’s pretty simple: Osama bin Laden is dead and General Motors is alive,” Biden said, saying Obama’s decisions on both foreign and domestic policy had made the U.S. safer. Biden cast the former Massachusetts governor as an inexperienced foreign policy thinker who would delegate decisions to staff and advisers. He also hit Romney on his reputation for flipflopping on issues.

WASHINGTON — Sen. Marco Rubio outlined his vision Wednesday of a more muscular American foreign policy, the latest salvo in his effort to elevate his profile as Republican presidential candidate Mitt Romney begins his search for a running mate. The Florida Republican’s half-hour speech at the centrist Brookings Institution came four weeks after he endorsed Romney and two days after campaigning with him. He also recently has spoken of a new immigration proposal that breaks ranks with some in his own party. Both in Washington and around the country, the 40-year-old CubanAmerican is pushing himself forward as a fresh conservative. He

House Speaker John Boehner of Ohio defends the cybersecurity bill Thursday on Capitol Hill in Washington. has remained coy about whether he would join Romney’s ticket this November, but his careful criticism of President Barack Obama’s leadership as well as the isolationist tendencies among some Republicans reinforced the image he has projected of himself as a tough conservative but one moderate enough for national election. “Global problems do require international coalitions. On that point this administration is correct,” Rubio told a crowd of almost 200 academics, policymakers and diplomats. “But effective international coalitions don’t form themselves. They need to be instigated and led, and more often than not, they can only be instigated and led by us. And that is what this administration doesn’t understand.”

Ban on exotic swine causes backlash McBAIN, Mich. — Mark Baker was accustomed to taking orders in the Air Force. Now he’s defying the government, taking a stand for what he considers a fundamental right: raising exotic hogs. Baker is among Michigan farmers and ranchers battling the state’s attempt to stamp out an industry that has been capitalizing on the increasing popularity of certain fierce, sharptusked boars among adventure hunters and gourmands at tony restaurants. Known by various labels — feral hogs, razorbacks, Eurasian and Russian wild boar — they’re believed to be escaping from hunting preserves and becoming a menace in the wild. The conflict over the beasts has created odd alliances among foodies, environmentalists, agribusiness, hunters, and regulators in a state that normally tries to nurture businesses but in this case wants to exterminate one. More than 5 million feral swine are prowling fields and woods in nearly every state, competing with native wildlife for food, gobbling farm crops and spreading disease, according to the U.S. Department of Agriculture. Clever, aggressive and prolific — sows can produce two litters of up to six pigs a year — they are notorious for eating virtually anything and for damaging fields and wetlands with their rooting and wallowing.

Lesbian Scout leader ousted The first-graders in Ohio Pack 109’s Tiger Scouts didn’t know or care their den mother was a lesbian — at least

not until the Boy Scouts of America threw her out over the organization’s ban on gays. Now, parents who were aware of Jennifer Tyrell’s sexual orientation well before she took the boys on campouts and helped them carve race cars for the annual Pinewood Derby have rallied to her defense in a case that has re-ignited the debate over the Scouts’ policy. “I teach my children to judge people on their actions,” said Rob Dunn, a father in Bridgeport, a village of about 2,000 across the Ohio River from Wheeling, W.Va. “Whether you agree with their lifestyle or not.” The Boy Scouts of America, whose oath calls for members to be “morally straight,” maintains that as a private organization it has the right to exclude gays and atheists from its ranks. That stance was upheld by the U.S. Supreme Court in 2000 but has led many state and local governments to deny support for the Scouts. Male scout leaders who are gay have long been barred, but instances of women being excluded are not well-documented and probably rare. A lesbian couple in Vermont were told two years ago that they could no longer be involved with their son’s Scout troop.

Edwards attorney attacks ex-aide GREENSBORO, N.C. — John Edwards’ defense lawyer on Thursday picked apart ex-aide Andrew Young’s story that he was asked to conceal Edwards’ affair with a mistress with campaign money, accusing him of making up stories about the former presidential contender to make money off of the scandal. Andrew Young took witness stand for a fourth straight day at Edwards’ campaign finance fraud trial. The star prosecution witness is key to the government’s case that while campaigning for the White House in 2008, Edwards directed a scheme to use nearly $1 million in secret payments from two wealthy donors to conceal an affair with his pregnant mistress. Edwards has pleaded not guilty to six criminal counts and faces up to 30 years behind bars if convicted. The defense argued in opening statements that Young spent most of the money at issue in the case to build a $1.5 million house for his family, not to buy the silence of Edwards’ mistress, Rielle Hunter. The defense sought to undermine Young’s credibility and paint him as a pathological liar.

A slow but steady recovery Measuring the economy: How do we know if the economy is growing or shrinking? The government estimates changes in U.S. gross domestic product, or GDP, every quarter. GDP is the broadest measure of the output of all goods and services â&#x20AC;&#x201D; everything from auto manufacturing to health care services. What it shows: The government will issue its first estimate of growth in the January-March quarter on Friday. Economists forecast that the economy grew at an annual rate of 2.5 percent. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s down from the fourth quarterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pace of 3 percent. A growth rate of either 2.5 percent or 3 percent would be considered good when the economy is healthy. But with 12.7 million people unemployed, faster growth is needed to increase hiring. One rule of thumb is that the economy needs to grow roughly 4 percent for a full year to push down the unemployment rate, currently 8.2 percent, by a full point. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not uncommon after a deep recession for the economy to grow robustly. In some cases, GDP has

rebounded at a 6 percent or higher rate for a few quarters. But since the Great Recession ended in June 2009, the best rate has been 3.9 percent in the first quarter of 2010. As a result, the economy is only slowly repairing the damage done by the recession. The U.S. produced $13.3 trillion of goods and services, at an annual rate, in the fourth quarter of 2007. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t until the third quarter of last year that the economy returned to its pre-recession size. And the unemployment rate is much higher than the 5 percent rate when the recession started in December 2007. Why it matters: Economic growth is the foundation for most of the economic trends Americans care about. Besides jobs, strong growth also tends to boost wages, corporate profits and the stock market. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next: Over the next two months, the government will issue two updated estimates of growth for the January-March quarter.

Procter & Gambleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 3Q

Fordâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 1Q

Procter & Gamble is expected to show a slightly lower profit for its fiscal third quarter today. But Wall Street will have its eye on more than the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bottom line. As the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest maker of consumer products, Procter & Gambleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sales trends can give insight into whether consumer spending is holding up in emerging markets, or if high raw material costs are showing signs of easing.

Automaker Ford Motor faced an uphill drive in the first three months of this year. The company saw sales slow outside of North America and faced a new, higher tax rate. And the requisite comparison to last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first quarter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; its best since 1998 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help. Wall Street is anticipating Ford will report lower earnings for the first quarter today.

NEW YORK — Have NFL fans seen the last of the Pro Bowl? The game could be suspended next year, two people familiar with discussions said Thursday. Commissioner Roger Goodell, among others, expressed concerns about the quality of play after January’s game, and the league has been holding talks with the players’ union about the future of the all-star game. The people spoke on condition of anonymity because the talks were not being publicized. Responding to an ESPN report that Goodell is “strongly considering” suspending the game in 2013, NFL spokesman Greg Aiello said: “No

determination has been made yet.” Goodell said before the Super Bowl in February he was unhappy with what he saw in the AFC’s 59-41 win in the Pro Bowl at Honolulu — a game that often resembled touch football. Many players chosen for the game bow out, and if the Pro Bowl is held before the Super Bowl, as it was during the past three years, players from the conference champions don’t participate. The game still draws solid TV ratings, but isn’t considered a money maker. Although viewership dropped 8.1 percent in January, the Pro Bowl still was the highestrated sports program of the weekend. The big factor is cost, particularly when played in

Hawaii. And with so many defections— there were 20 replacements for non-participating players in 2012, including Pro Bowlers from the Giants and Patriots who were occupied with the Super Bowl — it raises the question of whether the game is still special. Newly elected NFLPA President Domonique Foxworth tweeted Thursday: “The Pro Bowl is an important tradition we are in talks with the league to improve and preserve the game for our players and fans” Hawaii began hosting the game in 1980 and it was held there annually until 2010, when it moved to Miami and was played the week before the Super Bowl there. Before moving it, the NFL said there

was a need for a more modern stadium in Hawaii. The game returned to Hawaii in 2011, but now the site — and the very existence — of next year’s game is up in the air. “We have had lots of talks with the players about the Pro Bowl,” NFL counsel Jeff Pash said last week. “When should it be played? Where? And certainly the quality of the game. “We understand what contributes to the low quality of the game. It does not mean very much either financially or competitively. Players are reluctant to participate in a way that they could be injured. It’s not going to ever look like a playoff game, but it needs to improve so fans don’t say, ‘I feel bad watching it.’ “

Colts take Andrew Luck to open draft BY BARRY WILNER Associated Press

NEW YORK — Six weeks after saying goodbye to Peyton Manning, the Indianapolis Colts handed Andrew Luck a blue and white jersey and the daunting task of leading a rebuilding team as its quarterback for the next decade. Luck couldn’t have chosen

a tougher act to follow — all Manning did was win an unprecedented four MVP awards and a Super Bowl for Indy. But Luck many believe he is the most NFL-ready

passer to enter the league since Manning went No. 1 overall in 1998. “You don’t really replace a guy like that,” Luck said. “You can’t. You just try to do the best you can. Obviously, he was my hero growing up.” His selection as the top pick was hardly a surprise. The Colts informed the Stanford

quarterback last week that Commissioner Roger Goodell would announce his name first Thursday night. Right behind him was Baylor QB Robert Griffin III, the Heisman Trophy winner, who was taken second overall by the Washington Redskins. No Please see DRAFT | 9A

Bobcats poised to be worst NBA team ever BY STEVE REED Associated Press

CHARLOTTE, N.C. — Michael Jordan’s No. 23 has long been synonymous with greatness. By Thursday night that number could have a completely different meaning for him. His Charlotte Bobcats face their 23rd consecutive loss and would finish the season

includes six NBA championships and five league MVP awards would also include one very forgettable season for the record book. It’s been 39 years since an NBA team finished with a worse winning percentage than the Bobcats. In a full season, the 1972-73 Philadelphia 76ers finished 9-73 (.110) in a full regular season.

In this lockout-shortened regular season, the Bobcats are a woeful 7-58 — and they are every bit as bad as the numbers indicate. They’re last in league scoring and shooting percentage. They’ve lost 21 games by 20 points or more. It’s hard to decide what’s worse, their ofPlease see BOBCATS | 9A

Associated Press

AUBURN, Ala. — The steady drumbeat of construction equipment pounded through Gene Chizik’s office Thursday morning, a sign of the work in progress at Auburn. That national championship 15-plus months ago didn’t mean the Tigers had finished

the rebuilding job remarkably ahead of schedule. To Chizik, Auburn’s fourth-year coach, a positive sign his program is closing in on that completion came during the spring with all the competition for starting jobs on a team that has only a handful of vacancies. “If you look at our senior class this past year, it’s very

representative of the crater there in our numbers,” Chizik told The Associated Press. “We’ve had to really significantly work through the last couple of years in terms of building our numbers up in recruiting. We’re definitely on track. This upcoming recruiting class is going to be huge in what we consider solidifying

four really great foundational recruiting classes. “We feel like this fourth one is going to get us where we need to be.” He’s not counting the first class that was largely assembled before his hiring by Tommy Tuberville’s staff. Please see AUBURN | 9A

suspense attached to that pick, either. After being loudly booed at the outset, Goodell told a raucous crowd at Radio City Music Hall that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the season begins tonight, so letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kick if off.â&#x20AC;? Then he did, congratulating Luck while the crowd chanted â&#x20AC;&#x153;RG3, RG3.â&#x20AC;? Luck left the stage and slapped hands with some fans in Colts shirts and headed to the interview room. To get Griffin, Washington dealt a second-round pick this year and its first-rounders in 2013 and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;14 to St. Louis to move up four spots Dressed in a light blue suit that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t quite mesh with Redskins burgundy and gold, Griffin had some trouble getting the team hat over his braids and ended up wearing it just a tad crooked while he flashed big smiles for photos. Less than an hour before Goodell began the draft, Cleveland and Minnesota pulled off another trade in what would become a virtual swap shop. The Browns moved up just one spot, from fourth to third, to ensure getting running back Trent Richardson of national champion Alabama. Minnesota received picks in the fourth, fifth and seventh rounds and still was in position to get one of the elite prospects in this draft. Like Griffin, Richardson was treated with lusty cheers from the crowd. Unlike Griffin, he had less trouble placing the Cleveland hat over his impressive dreads. Minnesota then took Southern California offensive tackle Matt Kalil, whom the Vikings were expected to take at No. 3 anyway. Luckâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good fortune put him in a similar position to Stanford predecessors Jim Plunkett, who won two Super Bowls for the Raiders, and John Elway, who led Denver to two NFL titles.

10A • Friday, April 27, 2012 • Daily Corinthian

A most important convening to enlighten us Years ago I wrote a column about convening a panel of respected intellects, some dead and some alive, to enlighten us who are less savvy about the crazy political storms that engulf us every year in some form or fashion. I looked for that column this morning for a rerun and couldn’t find it, so I decided to write a follow-up. I don’t remember if all of the following intelligentsia was present at the first “meeting,” but I’m sure some were. I was pleased with their conversation today (their actual words) and present the exchange here so you can also find something to think and chuckle about when the politicians are going after each other, polluting the airwaves. ■■■

Ladies and gentlemen, welcome our distinguished guests. BBJ: Franklin P. Adams, you’re the noted author of several books and always seem to enjoy sharing your wisdom. What say ye about the state of politics today? Franklin Adams: “Well, when

the political columnists say ‘every thinking man’ they mean themselves, and when candidates appeal to ‘every Beth intelligent voter’ Jacks they mean everybody who is Snippets going to vote for them.” Maureen Murphy: “Yes, the reason there are so few female politicians is that it is too much trouble to put makeup on two faces.” BBJ: You two seem to have a cynical take on the subject. Do you agree, Charles de Gaulle? Charles de Gaulle: “Indeed. I have come to the conclusion that politics are too serious a matter to be left to the politicians.” BBJ: Ahh, President Dwight D. Eisenhower, would you like to comment? President Eisenhower: “Yes, politics ought to be the parttime profession of every citizen who would protect the rights

and privileges of free people and who would preserve what is good and fruitful in our national heritage.” Albert Einstein: “It is the duty of every citizen according to his best capacities to give validity to his convictions in political affairs.” BBJ: I certainly agree, but that puts quite a responsibility on the average citizen, right? I mean, we don’t always understand all the issues. Correct? Mark Twain: “In religion and politics, people’s beliefs and convictions are in almost every case gotten at second hand, and without examination.” BBJ: Yes, we humans do enjoy expressing ourselves -- even when we don’t know what we’re talking about. Henry Adams, you appear to want to contribute something here. Henry Adams: “Politics has always been the systematic organization of hatreds.” Jimmy Wales: “Quite right. Most people assume the fights are going to be the left versus the right, but it always is the

reasonable versus the jerks.” Will Rogers: “The more you read and observe about this politics thing, you got to admit that each party is worse than the other. The one that’s out always looks the best.” BBJ: Makes sense, I suppose. H. L. Mencken, you’ve been awfully quiet. H. L. Mencken: “I was just thinking that the whole aim of practical politics is to keep the populace alarmed (and hence clamorous to be led to safety) by menacing it with an endless series of hobgoblins, all of them imaginary.” Eleanor Roosevelt: “Sometimes I wonder if we shall ever grow up in our politics and say definite things which mean something, or whether we shall always go on using generalities to which everyone can subscribe, and which mean very little.” President Ronald Reagan: “Oh, come on. Politics is not a bad profession. If you succeed there are many rewards; if you disgrace yourself you can al-

ways write a book.” BBJ: Good point, Mr. President. And a word or two from you, sir? Pat Paulsen: “Assuming either the Left Wing or the Right Wing gained control of the country, it would probably fly around in circles.” BBJ: My opinion also, Mr. Paulsen. I’m for cooling the rhetoric and getting back to some moderation and statesmanship in the political arena. Albert Einstein: (sigh) “Politics is far more complicated than physics.” Will Rogers: “Awww, I tell you, folks, politics is applesauce.” BBJ: And on that deep thought, we are adjourned. I wish you patience and prudence during this hot political season! Let the people say “Amen.” (Beth Boswell Jacks is a freelance writer and newspaper columnist from Cleveland.

Corinth Music Club meetings explore variety of topics Special to the Daily Corinthian

The Corinth Music Club has been exploring a variety of topics in it’s recent monthly meetings. The October meeting of the Corinth Music Club featured a program, “Music Reflected in the Arts” held at the Corinth Artists Guild Gallery. Those attending heard “Ode to a Skylark” by Ralph Vaughn Williams while club president Donna Janzen read the poem “High Flight” by John McGee. William McMullin then presented images accompanied by music including “Intermezzo” from Cavalleria Rusticana, “Mars, the Bringer

of War” by Holst, and “Georgia on My Mind” by Ray Charles. After the business meeting, “The Erie Canal” was performed by club member Bobbi Campbell on alto flute. In November, the Corinth Music Club met at the home of Sherri Shipp for an informative program on outstanding musicians from the city of Corinth. Peggy McCord discussed Harry McCord, a gifted and original pianist and educator. Music club member William McMullin talked about Henry Dalton, a poet and musician whose memorabilia is archived at the University of Mis-

sissippi. The well-known soprano soloist Jane Redding was discussed by Sara Ellington, and attendees heard Redding’s exquisite voice in a recording of Rigoletto. Cathy Alexander then presented information on Danny Beckwith, who has conducted at many opera houses in the United States and Europe. He frequently partners with famous vocalists as a bel canto singer. Jennifer Burns played the Rutter version of “For the Beauty of the Earth.” After the business meeting, McMullin played “Bless this House” as club members sang along. This is a tradition of the


Corinth Music Club that now honors the memory of Margaret Hooten who sang the beloved song for many years. A delicious lunch was then served by hostesses Shipp, Janet Savoy and Michelle Reiselt. To begin their new year, the Corinth Music Club’s January meeting was held at First Baptist Church where members enjoyed a program called, “Heart Songs: God’s Favorite Music.” Program leader Cindy Mathis introduced Royce Wilder, associate pastor of music and worship at FBC, who presented the program. Wilder mentioned the most recent

versions of the Baptist Hymnal and noted the songs included in the hymnal have changed over time. Several contemporary hymns have been included in the most recent Baptist Hymnal editions, and some of them do not show up in more than one edition. Certain words in hymns may be changed to reflect the desired interpretation in the current culture. Also, in the currently used 2008 Baptist Hymnal, the key signature of several hymns has been adjusted downward to make it easier for the congregation to sing. Wilder referred to Mar-

tin Luther’s role in the birth of congregational singing. Luther used existing worship music but he “updated” the theology as needed. He also used familiar tunes with new text added. Finally, Luther wrote new songs with new tunes and text. To conclude, Wilder stated desirable worship music should be well written, well chosen and well sung. A business meeting was held after the program. When the club meeting was adjourned, hostesses Ginger Stockton and Carol Baker served a delicious luncheon to members and guests.

Singer rises from homelessness BY JONATHAN LANDRUM JR. Associated Press

ATLANTA — James Fortune used to watch his children sleep in the bathtub before he lay beside his pregnant wife at night in a motel, wondering how he was going to provide for his family the next day. For the gospel singer, being homeless for seven months in 2007 was the most strenuous stint of his life. The constant letdown of watching others get hired for jobs while he and his wife Cheryl went overlooked weakened his faith. He asked in a prayer why God seemingly abandoned them during their most stressful time. But during his prayer, Fortune said he went from being emotionally stifled to at peace. That’s when he was led to write the words to his 2009 hit song, “I Trust You,” which topped the Gospel National Airplay chart for 28 straight weeks “I questioned God,” he recalled. “It seemed like God wasn’t even there and had forgotten about us because we saw other people get hired and prospering,” he continued. “It seemed like the lowest point. But in that situation, God gave me

the song that changed my life.” The 34-year-old Fortune and his ensemble called F.I.Y.A (Free In Yahweh’s Abundance) recently released their fourth album “Identity,” which debuted in the top spot on Billboard’s Gospel, Christian and Independent album charts. He is a rising a star in the genre and has opened concerts for some of gospel’s best, including Kirk Franklin, Shirley Caesar, Yolanda Adams and Fred Hammond. Last year, Fortune launched FIYA World Music Group with his wife, who is the vice president of the record label. Life is totally different these days for the Fortunes, who are now have their own home in Houston. “It’s a beautiful testimony,” Franklin said of the Fortunes. “It’s amazing how God takes people that have had horrible experiences and (they) use it as a tool to write songs and music that will speak to other people who are going through the same things. It’s amazing how God takes lemons and makes them into lemonade.” Fortune lost his job at a water company and his wife was laid off from an insurance company when their employers

decided to downsize five years ago. Even though he and F.I.Y.A. already had an album out three years before, it was not a lucrative project. The only stream of income the Fortunes had was through the singer’s part-time position as minister of music at Higher Dimension Church in Houston. But they had more bills than money and struggled to pay medical bills, they said. As a result, Fortune along with his pregnant wife and two children were evicted from their home and couldn’t afford to keep one of their cars. For the first couple of months, they loaded up in their only car until it was repossessed, which prompted them to move from one motel to another. During the whole time, Fortune and his wife told none of their family members or friends of their circumstances. “Pride got in the way,” said Cheryl Fortune. “We didn’t want them to know how far we had fallen. It would always seem like something would always come through. We just tried to figure it out by ourselves.” Cheryl Fortune said she often read the Bible and focused mainly on scripture Jeremiah 29:11

to give her strength each day. She wanted to bring light to the situation for her children and support her husband. The Fortunes survived off the money they saved from their previous jobs and through several performances. All those days of James and Cheryl Fortune wondering when they would find a job finally ended after seven months. He was promoted to a fulltime position at Higher Dimension and his wife found a job with health benefits. With income flowing in and the family no longer homeless, Fortune threw himself into music, penning “I Trust You” and “I Believe,” which earned him his second ASCAP Writer’s Award in 2010. Now, James Fortune looks at their situation as a “living testimony.” For those who are struggling to find a job and may have found themselves homeless, he hopes his music and story can help others pull through like the lyrics of “I Trust You” did for him. “We are an example, a demonstration of God’s power and sovereignty,” he said. “To us, we really didn’t know what God was doing. But the whole time, he was just setting us up for a great blessing.”

Islam is not a real religion and that its followers are violent. The proposed mosque is one of a few Muslim projects in the U.S. that hit a swell of conservative opposition around the same time as the controversy

over a planned Muslim community center near New York’s ground zero. The plaintiffs want to void a May 2010 meeting of the Rutherford County Planning Commission in which it approved the Islamic Center of Mur-

freesboro’s site plan. They claim the public was not adequately notified ahead of time. Chancellor Robert Corlew, who is overseeing the trial, has limited the scope of the trial strictly to the public notice.

Facebook thanks no substitute for individual note DEAR ABBY: I recently attended a baby shower for a dear high school friend and his wife. The day after the shower, she posted a slideshow on Facebook titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thanks for All Our Giftsâ&#x20AC;? with a picture of each gift and who gave it. She has had numerous miscarriages and held this shower at five months, knowing the baby is not yet at a viable stage. While I feel sympathy for her fertility issues, and especially for her husband who desperately wants to be a father, I think this is a bid for attention. I am disgusted at how she seems to be bragging about her haul, yet prepping everyone to give her

Abigail Van Buren Dear Abby

an outpouring of support if there is another tragic loss. W h o does this? I am ... SPEECHLESS IN NORTH

CAROLINA DEAR SPEECHLESS: Most baby showers are given four to six weeks before the motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s due date. However, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible that your friendâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife had hers at five months because, with her history of miscarriages, sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s excited that her pregnancy seems to be progressing well and sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thinking

positively about the outcome. I hope it works out well and so should you. As to her method of thanking everyone for the gifts, she may never have been taught that individual thank-you notes should have been sent to each guest. Because it is clear that you are closer to the husband than the wife, perhaps you should tip him off that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still not too late for them to do the right thing and suggest he help her with them. DEAR ABBY: I have been divorced from my wife for almost a year, with another year of separation preceding that. We divorced because of arguments, not because of abuse, adultery or sub-

stance abuse issues. The divorce actually seemed to take on a life of its own. Because I have a small son with her, I desperately want to attempt a reconciliation. She is reticent about it, however, mainly because I believe sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting pressure from her family. How can I persuade her to go out with me so we can rekindle the spark we once shared? -MISSING MY OLD LIFE DEAR MISSING: Before a couple can successfully reconcile, they must first resolve the problems that caused the separation in the first place. That would be the way to begin. However, are you aware that not once in your letter did you say

that you still love your ex-wife? If the reason you want to â&#x20AC;&#x153;rekindle the sparkâ&#x20AC;? is that you miss being with your child and the comforts of being married -- but not her -- then I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think you have much chance of success. DEAR ABBY: My childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best friend has a parent who is constantly late (to the tune of hours, not minutes). I understand that the child is not at fault, but my childâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s feelings are hurt by the blatant disregard of the other parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tardiness. How do I help this parent (whom I adore otherwise) to understand that disappointing my child through poor time management is

not acceptable to our family without hurting both children? -- WATCHING THE CLOCK DEAR CLOCK WATCHER: If you havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t told the parent that it is hurtful when your child is kept waiting hours for a play date, you should. And if that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bring the desired result, your child should be encouraged to move to some other activity and/ or another companion. (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 or P.O. Box 69440, Los Angeles, CA 90069.)

chatter. Your forethought works brilliantly to keep you moving along your path. TODAYâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;S BIRTHDAY (April 27). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll break big goals down into small

chunks and get to work in May. June puts a new person in your life, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be creatively inspired. August is your chance to trade up on a big-ticket item.

Horoscopes BY HOLIDAY MATHIS ARIES (March 21-April 19). Today brings a surprise and the thrill of experiencing what you couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have anticipated. You are always finding new ways to unwind. Tonight, your favorite music will transport your mind to a beautiful place. TAURUS (April 20-May 20). You are finding a new sense of identity apart from your family role. You accept that your family did their best for you, and this is what allows you to accept yourself. GEMINI (May 21-June 21). When your sign mate Walt Whitman wrote that there â&#x20AC;&#x153;will never be any more perfection than there is now,â&#x20AC;? he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t talking about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;nowâ&#x20AC;? that happened back then. He

was talking about the â&#x20AC;&#x153;nowâ&#x20AC;? in which you are reading this. CANCER (June 22July 22). Righteousness doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t solve anything and instead promotes a sense of inequality and division. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll focus on yourself and on doing what it takes to make your life better, regardless of the wrongdoings of others. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be playing a social game of sorts. Some will take it far more seriously than you do, and this gives you an advantage. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll rise above the situation and form a strategy instead of reacting to the play-by-play. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be brimming with cool, novel ideas for creating fun times with your loved ones. Of course, until you try

them out, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell just how cool they are. Follow through, and bring a camera. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 23). Like a silk cloth dropped from a monument, life reveals itself to you with a degree of pomp and circumstance. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll enjoy the way events will be framed in a certain context with accompanying rituals. SCORPIO (Oct. 24-Nov. 21). You recognize the sound of a soulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cry, and it wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be heard with your ears but with your heart. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be in tune with the way others are feeling, and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be a healer when those feelings are raw. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22Dec. 21). Usually, your actions are motivated by many different factors at once. What you do today will be motivated by a



sense of duty, your own aesthetic enthusiasm and the chance for political gain. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22Jan. 19). If you know what itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like to love a certain person and not have that love returned, then you may also understand that it is just the kind of loss from which great art springs. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll turn past pain into something beautiful. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20Feb. 18). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re a true friend and a stellar partner, which youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll prove with todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s approach to relationships. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll loan your strength to another instead of using it as a weapon of control. PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20). Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll plan your day intelligently in the hope that less time will be wasted in mindless activities and useless
