Free parking ON the Square Getting prepared The Oxford Board of Aldermen restored 30 spaces from city-regulated 2-hour parking limit to free status last week and is considering adding bus parking for venues.

for severe weather

After a tornado touched down in Hattiesburg Sunday evening and swept through the University of Southern Mississippi campus, University of Mississippi officials are raising awareness on campus of how to respond to emergency weather conditions. BY BRACEY HARRIS

ANNA BRIGANCE | The Daily Mississippian


Oxford Mayor Pat Patterson and the Board of Aldermen decided to remove an ordinance passed in November that added 30 spaces to city-regulated, twohour parking in last Tuesday’s board meeting. These spaces, which are located on Jackson Avenue near city hall and along Monroe Street, have been restored to free parking after the Downtown Parking Council determined there was an insufficient amount of free spaces available. “Parking around the Square continues to be a work in progress and more changes could come down the road,” Patterson said. Parking on the Square is a challenge for both University of Mississippi students and Oxford residents, especially for those who work on the Square. Accounting junior Brooks Cunningham has worked at three restaurants on the Square and

said parking for employees has become a nightmare. “It has become such a struggle just to find a legal spot that I just have someone drop me off — otherwise the first thing I see when I get off work is another parking ticket,” Cunningham said. A new parking area has recently been opened behind the Oxford University Club to help with the parking problem, but city planner Tim Akers said the new area hasn’t been used much because most people don’t know it’s there. “That parking area is open now,” Akers said. “It stays around 50 percent open now, but I think it’s because people just don’t realize it’s open yet. We put up some signs to direct people there now.” The board was also presented with the first reading of a proposed ordinance that would allow for long-term tour bus parking for artists performing at local venues. Proud Larry’s and Lyric em-

ployee Morgan Monroe said the ordinance would be very helpful to businesses on the Square by making it easier for artists performing to get back and forth from their buses. “The artists are allowed to park next to the venue to unload equipment, but once it’s all out they have to park far away from the venue,” he said. “If they’re coming here to play and bring business to Oxford, they should at least be allowed to park close. It doesn’t make any sense.” The ordinance would allow artists to park their tour buses in one of three designated busparking areas from 3 p.m. the day of their performance until 8 a.m. the next morning. The proposed bus parking areas would be on Harrison Avenue next to Proud Larry’s, 10th Street next to the Oxford Eagle and North 11th Street next to the Lyric. Both the Harrison Avenue and North 11th Street locations have met opposition from city offiSee SQUARE, PAGE 4

The University of Mississippi’s Crisis Action Team was formed in 2008 and is responsible for monitoring possible threats to the Ole Miss campus and students’ safety. The most common concern, however, is weather. Associate provost and team member Noel Wilkin said that campus may undergo 20 tornado watches during the course of the year. This past week, the university sought to promote Severe Weather Awareness Week, which was declared by the Mississippi Emergency Management Association. “The most important thing for people to understand is that we take our safety and the safety of our community very seriously,” Wilkin said. “I hope all faculty, staff and

students will also take their safety seriously and do what is necessary to learn how to respond to given emergencies on our campus.” Political science senior Emilie Edmonds, a New Mexico native, said she has had to learn to prepare for severe weather in Oxford. “It wasn’t until my junior year where we actually had See PREPARED, PAGE 4


Tornado hits Hattiesburg HATTIESBURG — A tornado tore through Hattiesburg on Sunday as part of a wave of severe storms that downed trees, damaged buildings and injured more than a dozen people. The twister traveled down one of Hattiesburg’s main streets and mangled homes, commercial buildings and structures on the campus of the University of Southern Mississippi. Emergency officials said at least 10 people were injured in surrounding Forrest County and three were hurt to the west in Marion County, but they weren’t aware of any deaths.

Mississippi Emergency Management Agency spokesman Greg Flynn said it appears that a single tornado caused the damage in those two counties and Lamar County. Hundreds of homes are damaged in Forrest County, along with a couple dozen in the other two. Gov. Phil Bryant declared a state of emergency. Flynn said the sheer scope of the damage was slowing their assessment. “The problem is, it was so strong that there’s so much debris that there’s a lot of arSee TORNADOES, PAGE 5

Two weeks ago at Union Unplugged, I saw two tweets that were both equally ignorant and insensitive. One said, “I love it when the Union gets all ghetto.” The other said, “ghettoTuesday is back!” The second tweeter was gracious enough to provide a picture of the NPHC Greeks strolling in front of the Union. What’s even more problematic about these tweets is that they emerged just after the Incident Review Committee deemed that social media fueled the post-election incident. Two questions must be asked: T H E D A I LY

If social media fueled the postelection incident, what was the spark? What prompted our fellow classmates to tweet such insensitivity? The answer to both is one that few people want to talk about — subtle racial animosity. Ignorance also played a role in these and past tweets like it. “When anyone, Greek or non-Greek, sees Union Unplugged and calls it ‘ghetto’ or ‘thug,’ they are conflating traditions developed by intelligent, educated African-Americans with negative connotations of poverty and urban life, when the only connection is a stereotype about their race,” a former Ole Miss student and current Vanderbilt grad student said. I couldn’t have put it better myself. ​This leads me to my second point. Why is the University of Mississippi perceived as a rac-

ist school? Obviously our past plays an integral role in that perception, but also our contemporary history of racial insensitivity factors into the minds of outsiders. A few years ago, a fraternity had a party in which some of the members put on black faces and acted like prisoners. And I have heard plenty of anecdotal stories of people that were treated unfairly because of the color of their skin. I remember all of the vehement responses students displayed when negative national and international coverage loomed over our campus. I also remember the candlelight vigil that was held in response. But that’s not enough for the media to stop casting us as racist. It’s not enough for us to honestly call ourselves a community that welcomes diversity. It’s not enough for the preacher to continually be preaching to the

choir. It’s simply not enough. We all have to make a concerted, consistent effort to turn our campus into a better place. I can already hear people saying that our campus is not the only one that has racial problems. This is true. But an old gospel song by the Williams Brothers my father used to play when I was younger says, “Sweep around your own front door, before you try to sweep around mine.” No one cares more about the image of Ole Miss than its students. Let us rise to the occasion and really try to bring forth a change to our university. ​We are in the midst of campus elections; I hope that all of the campus candidates are committed to bring forth change in regards to our campus climate. I wish them all the best of luck. Tim Abram is a public policy junior from Horn Lake. Follow him on Twitter @Tim_Abram.

Mental health and gun violence


In the wake of mass shootings such as the Sandy Hook Elementary school shooting, the Aurora theater shooting and the shooting at a Sikh temple in Wisconsin, debates about gun control have come to surface once again. There has been a focus on mental health research and awareness as a means to combat violence. Both sides see an increase in research as a good thing, but anti-gun control advocates see it as the primary way to combat violence, while pro-gun control groups see it as a secondary means behind new legislation. Dilip Jeste, the president of the American Psychological Association, said “only 4 to 5 percent of violent crimes are committed by people with mental illness.” Such statistics poke holes in the theory that mental health is the primary concern in violent acts. Jeste also said, “About one quarter of Americans have a mental disorder in any given year, and only a small percentage of them will commit violent crimes.”

Other psychologists have stated unless a patient tells someone they are planning on doing something violent, there is no way to know who will commit some sort of violent act out of those 25 percent of Americans. Another concern is that this focus on a correlation between mental health and shootings will stigmatize the majority of Americans suffering from mental disorders who will never do anything violent. Another problem both sides of the debate point out are the gaps in the background check system done when someone purchases a firearm. Federal law already prohibits people with some forms of mental illness from buying a gun; however, many states are not sending the proper paperwork into the FBI database, which creates gaps in information. For example, the Huffington Post published an article that said Virginia Tech shooter Seung-Hui Cho and Long Island Rail Road shooter Colin Ferguson might have been prevented from purchasing a firearm if all of their information had been submitted to the database. A recent report by ABC News found that only 12 states in the U.S., send in the proper paperwork. It’s easy to see the issue is not as simple as either side would like it to be or, at times, present it to be.

More mental health research on its own and more legislation on its own probably won’t solve the problem. As seen by mental health statistics, it is difficult to blame mental disorders for even the majority of mass acts of violence, and further focus on these disorders as the cause only serve to stigmatize Americans suffering from illness who will never be violent. However, the laws already in place are obviously not serving their purposes as seen by the FBI background gaps, leaving us no reason to believe new laws will be any more effective. We can’t reduce the debate over gun control to one side or the other because it isn’t a simple issue. Instead, we could all benefit from civil discussion on the matter as opposed to the heated battles we’re so used to seeing. Megan Massey is a religious studies senior from Mount Olive.

Letter to the Editor Dear Editor, Regarding the smoking ban, let’s get this straight. This smoking ban at Ole Miss is about an overactive and misguided bunch of university administrators and student body leaders clamoring for approval from the national level: “Look at Ole Miss, look at how progressive we are now!” The ban is about a few people who abhor the smell, appearance, or even thought of a lit cigarette so much that they will, not ask you to smoke elsewhere, but force everyone to pay a group of Charger-driving machos to take care of the dirty business for them. Very few people would ever consider personally taking a cigarette from an individual’s mouth and slapping them with a fine, but as soon as the en-

forcer dons a uniform, that makes it a duty. Look, smoking is harmful and cigarette smoke, even outside, can be a nuisance to some people. I understand that. Personally, I don’t smoke. But to prohibit the use of a common, legal substance anywhere on a campus the size of a small town…well, that’s just silly, and a little scary. To close, I want to note my pride in UPD captain of field operations Michael Harmon’s astute observation: “We actually have to see that person smoking before we issue a citation.” As opposed to not seeing them…and issuing a citation? Yikes. Delightfully yours, John Lindbeck 2nd Year MA Student in History

cials. Oxford Fire Chief Cary Sallis opposed the Harrison Avenue location due to safety concerns. “When a bus is parked there, if we have to get a truck in there, there is little room for pedestrians or our truck,” Sallis said. Oxford Police Deputy Chief Kevin Stark and Oxford Emer-

gency Manager Jimmy Allgood agree with Sallis’ concerns. Allgood added that if buses parked at the 11th Street location, the security cameras used to watch the sidewalk next to the Lyric would be blocked. The ordinance would require venues wishing to use the tour bus parking to apply for a $150 temporary permit. Both the long-term parking and bus parking will be revisited during the board’s meeting on Feb. 19.

a (possible) tornado, and I had to hide in the library that I learned of the proper safety procedures for a tornado,” Edmonds said. In 2011, a storm cell passed over the Ole Miss campus that went on to strike Smithville and Tuscaloosa, Ala. During the storm, several students complained of getting delayed, or in some cases, no text message alerts. After realizing that everyone had not been reached, Wilkin said the university took a “no excuses” approach to ensure that students and faculty would be informed. The university created an emergency website that constantly updates and now also sends out emails. Tweets and notifications to the Ole Miss mobile apps are also being used to communicate emergencies. “We realized we needed

a mechanism to communicate to people that may be out of earshot of the sirens,” Wilkin said. “It’s also helpful to have a backup system in place to communicate on our campus.” Wilkin said everyone on

campus has a responsibility to know what to do in the case of an emergency. “Just like you know what to do when a fire alarm goes off in a building, people should know what to do when a tornado watch occurs on our campus,” he said.

Pope Announces Retirement Pope Benedict XVI announced Monday that he will resign on Feb. 28. The 85-year-old pope announced his decision in Latin during a meeting of Vatican cardinals. “After having repeatedly examined my conscience before God, I have come to the certainty that my strengths due to an advanced age are no longer suited to an adequate exercise of the Petrine ministry,” he told the cardinals. Benedict, the first pontiff to resign in nearly 600 years, emphasized that carrying out the duties of being pope — the leader of more than a billion Roman Catholics worldwide — requires “both strength of mind and body.” He says he is simply too infirm to carry on.

eas they haven’t been able to get to yet,” he said. On the campus of the university, trees were snapped in half around the heavily damaged Alumni House where part of the roof was ripped away. Windows in a nearby building were blown out, and heavy equipment worked to clear streets nearby in a heavy rain after the worst of the weather had passed. The university released a statement saying no one was hurt but that it was under a state of emergency, anyone away from campus should stay away until further notice. East of campus, 47-year-old Cindy Bullock was at home with her husband and dog, a terrier mix named Vinnie, when she heard the tornado coming. They ran to a hallway and covered their heads. It wasn’t long before the windows in the kitchen and bedroom exploded. The storm stripped all the shingles off the roof and left holes in it,

while knocking over a large pine tree in the yard. After dark, the Bullocks were trying to arrange their stuff inside so it wouldn’t get wet from the dripping water. “I just looked out the window and I heard the rumbling. It sounded like a train. We ran to the hall, and the kitchen windows and the windows in the bedroom exploded. It happened pretty fast,” she said. There were large trees blocking the road all through her neighborhood, and several of the houses were hit by falling trees. Her friend was staying with them after the friend’s apartment took a direct hit from a falling tree. Forrest County Sheriff Billy McGee says 10 or 15 people were injured by the tornado that slammed Hattiesburg and other parts of the county, but none of the injuries was serious. He says, “Most of our injuries have been walking wounded.” To the west, Marion County emergency director Aaron Greer says three injuries have

been reported in the community of Pickwick, about seven miles south of Columbia. He says two people were taken to hospitals, but the third didn’t have the injury examined. Greer says one mobile home was destroyed, three other structures have major damage and several have minor damage. Bryant plans to go to Hattiesburg on Monday to check out damage in the city and at USM, his alma mater, spokesman Mick Bullock said. On Sunday night, John and Katherine Adams were cleaning up around their one-story white house where the storm punched holes in the roof, busted windows

and completely destroyed the back porch. The couple was at home with their 7- and 3-year-old daughters when the tornado passed next to their house. All through the neighborhood, houses and vehicles were damaged by falling trees. “We’re safe, and that’s all that matters,” said Katherine Adams, 46. John Adams, who’s in the building supply business, said he was surprised to see broken boards that appeared to be from new construction in his yard because there are no homes being built nearby. “We’ve got stuff around here; I don’t even know where it came from,” he said.

From puppy love to anniversaries: Meet the Foresters BY CAMILLE MULLINS

Judy Hart was 15 when she and John Forester, then 17, went on their first date. It was 1979 and they both felt that, after the date, they were never genuinely interested in anybody else. “She was different from all the other girls for her age; she was so much taller,” John said. “The first time I saw her she was probably on a pair of skates, and so she even looked taller. It was just like, ‘Oh my gosh, she is gorgeous.’” Judy said that John stood out to her when they were younger. “The first time I remember knowing John existed was when he was teasing my best friend during a church camp trip,” Judy said. “We went to church together, but did not

go to the same school, and since he was older, while I was unaware of him, apparently he had been noticing me. That summer, 1979, he asked me out.” Judy and John felt completely at ease with each other from the get-go and continued dating while he attended Ole Miss and she finished high school. “It just seemed like it clicked; it was the right thing,” Judy said. “He always made me feel very special and always put me first and doted on me a bit.” In 1980, Judy’s family moved to Batesville, and they continued dating long distance. “I laugh at that now, but back then, people just didn’t travel like we do now,” Judy said. “We actually wrote letSee FORESTERS, PAGE 9

ters to each other, and each of us kept them.” During this time, John and Judy saw each other about twice a month and had limited phone conversations. “We were only allowed 5-10 minutes on the phone each week, and it had to be after 11 p.m. on Fridays because the phone rates were cheaper,” Judy said. Because they were so young, John and Judy’s parents pressured the two to date others. John’s parents in particular did not want the two to tie each other down, especially since he was entering his first year of college. “I was always wanting to come home to see her,” John said. “We gave it a test, and we just didn’t want to be apart.” The couple dated for four and a half years before they were married. John proposed on July 22, 1983, which was also Judy’s parents’ 27th wedding anniversary, and they were married on June 2, 1984. Judy was 23 and John was 26 when they had their first

child, Will, and one year later they had their daughter Ashley, who is currently a graduate student at Ole Miss. Judy worked at Marshall Academy in Holly Springs, where her children attended school for 14 years. In 2008, with both of their children in

college, she decided it was time to return to school to finish her degree. After living in Holly Springs for 22 years, they moved to Oxford this past fall. They believe Oxford and the university has been a large part of their lives.

“We have always gone to football, baseball and basketball games and we have come down here for other events,” John said. “I just love Oxford and I love the university.” Now, John and Judy both work on campus. John works in the registrar’s office, while

Judy works as operations supervisor in campus recreation. Judy will also graduate in May 2013 with her BBA in management. They have celebrated Valentine’s Day together for 33 years and recall how they celebrated their first Valentine’s Day in 1980. “John gave me a stuffed red and white bear,” Judy said. “We probably went to The Hut, which was a little food drive-in place in Holly Springs. Now, we just go out to eat somewhere. John has always been sweet to do flowers or candy or gift cards for massages.” John believes that Valentine’s Day is a special day and likes to always have a surprise planned for Judy, so he would not reveal his plans for this year. “It is just a time for the two of us to go out to dinner or a movie,” John said. “But it was just a time for the two of us.” Judy said time for just her and John has been beneficial for their marriage. “We always made that really important, to have date nights, because you can get crazy with kids and work, and other obligations,” she said.

of all coach Bianco deserves it as a coach. He’s worked so hard here for so many years. “I have goals in the bullpen too. I want to set a few more records and things like that, but most importantly, I want to go win a national championship this year.” Huber has also seen a change in this team internally – a team that Bianco called a “close-knit group.” “We’ve hung out as a team more than I ever have,” Huber said. “I feel like as a team, we are ready to go. We are going to come out with a chip on our shoulder. It sucked last year, going home. It’s not fun. We’ve been waiting for a long time for this day to come.” The wait has been even longer for Huber after battling injury and being forced to rehab and make a comeback. Huber said he feels the strongest he has at Ole Miss before a season began, and Bianco said he has positioned himself for a strong senior campaign. “I’m proud of Brett,” Bianco said. “Obviously, he’s had a lot of success in his career here, but finally last year was one of those years where when he was healthy and was able to pitch he was really good. “There were times last year with the bone chips in the elbow that he wasn’t able. I think that’s tough. It’s tough for a kid, but its tough for a team, when you’re not sure whether your closer will be able to pitch that day. I agree with him. He’s never looked better.” At the end of the season, Huber said he hopes to have left a lasting legacy on the baseball program. “I just want them to think of a warrior,” Huber said. “Not only a warrior, but someone who cared a lot about Ole Miss, who came back their senior year because I love this place, this town, the coaches, the team.

that can hit the ball in the gap and hit it out of the yard. The Rebels will be led by senior left fielder Tanner Mathis and sophomore center fielder Auston Bousfield. Mathis is the leading returner at the plate. This past season, he hit .359 with 23 RBI and also had eight stolen bases, which led the team, and Godwin said Mathis is the catalyst for making the offense go. “As far as being blue-collar, hard-nosed, he’s my type of guy,” Godwin said. “When other teams face him, they hate that guy. He just spreads that throughout the team in a positive way.” Bousfield could be a player that really comes into his own this season. As a freshman, he hit .281 with 22 RBI and two home runs, but in the fall and spring, he was one of the most impressive batters. Wahl said he hates facing Bousfield in practice and scrimmages because he doesn’t swing at a bad pitch and is “just a tough out.” “He’s just stronger,” Godwin said of Bousfield. “He’s

a lot stronger than when he stepped on campus. The other thing is experience. He’s played every day in SEC play as a freshman and played center field. When you can do that, the experience you take away and have success as freshman, he’s just more confident.” Two newcomers will also look to play big roles for Ole Miss. Junior college transfer Stuart Turner will man the duties behind the plate, while junior college transfer Lance Wilson gets the starting nod at second base. Bianco said Turner is known for his defense but could also provide a big bat in the Rebel lineup. Junior Will Allen and sophomore Sikes Orvis will both get playing time at first base, with the other most likely filling the designated hitter spot. On the left side of the infield, senior Andrew Mistone

returns at third base, while junior Austin Anderson looks to be the everyday guy at shortstop. Godwin looks for Anderson to have a breakout year at the plate. “He was one of the better hitters on our team last year, and his numbers didn’t show for it,” Godwin said. “He led our team in hitting in the fall. He’s been nagged by a little hamstring injury in the preseason, but has still swung the bat really good. He’s just much more confident.” In the outfield, Bousfield and Mathis will be the everyday starters in center and left field, respectively, while junior Preston Overbey and sophomore Will Jamison will split time in right field.

Huber enters final campaign

Diamond Rebs meet the press

Right-handed closer Brett Huber returned to Ole Miss for his senior season to fulfill some goals. Huber is already tied for the all-time saves leader in school history, but he is back and hopes to help push the Rebels into the College World Series.

Ole Miss baseball head coach Mike Bianco spoke with the media Monday afternoon at baseball media day to discuss his team as they prepare for their season opener. The No. 13 Rebels open the season Friday with a three-game series against No. 14 TCU. BY DAVID COLLIER


Senior right-handed closer Brett Huber has been through a lot in his collegiate career. From tying the school’s alltime saves mark to having surgery and rehabbing on bone chips in his elbow. Now, Huber is looking to close out his career in the red and blue on a high note. “This is it, you know?” Huber said. “This is my last year. It is a big reason why Tanner Mathis and I came back. I talked to him and let him know that I think that all the years we’ve been here I think if we come back this will be the best year.” Huber, who has 26 career saves, was named to the National Baseball Writers Association of America preseason watch list for Stopper of the Year this past Friday after posting 10 saves last season. Although the individual ac-

colades are nice, he is more focused on the team’s ultimate goal: Omaha. “I’ve got goals this year,” Huber said. “Our main goal is to get to Omaha. I think we deserve it as a team and most See HUBER, PAGE 11

The opening of Ole Miss baseball season is just days away, when the No. 13 Rebels welcome No. 14 TCU for a three-game series. First pitch for Friday’s season opener is set for 4 p.m. from OxfordUniversity Stadium/Swayze Field. Head coach Mike Bianco is excited to get things underway. “It’s obviously an exciting time of the year for us with opening day less than a week away,” Bianco said. “The kids have been going at it since late August, since they stepped on campus. We had a tremendous fall and really good early spring, but they’re ready to play somebody in a different uniform.” Ole Miss ended last season with two consecutive losses to the Horned Frogs in the championship of the College Station, Texas, regional. The Rebels have six position starters returning this year in addition to their Friday and Saturday starters and closer. Bianco said he believes that returning experience will not make a big difference as the Rebels go through a tough non-conference schedule, which includes the series with TCU, a three-game series at Florida International, neutralsite games against Mississippi State and Southern Miss and a road game at Southern Miss, and SEC play. That experience will also come in handy during NCAA Tournament

time. “Last year’s team lacked an identity, but this year’s team, certainly, has that identity.” Bianco said. “We have as much experience as much as I can remember on both sides of the ball.” On the mound, junior right-

handers Bobby Wahl and Mike Mayers provide one of the best one-two punches in the country, but Ole Miss needs someone to be a consistent starter on Sundays to reach the Rebels’ full potential. Bianco announced Monday that sophomore right-hander Chris Ellis will get the nod against the Horned Frogs and said the Birmingham, Ala., native had a good fall that set him apart from the competition. “Since Chris got back (from summer ball), he’s different,” Bianco said. “He walks around like an SEC starter, and certainly, he’s always had the stuff. The stuff has always been in him, you just never know when it’s going to come out.” Ellis was 4-0 with a 2.84 ERA in 31.2 innings of work this past season. At the plate, Ole Miss lost Alex Yarbrough, Matt Snyder and Zach Kirksey, but hitting coach Cliff Godwin feels this year’s squad will fill that hole. “This offense has much more dynamics to it,” Godwin said. “We’ve got guys that can run, but we’ve also got guys
