Local family and volunteers complete Despite DUI decrease, homes with Habitat for Humanity drinking and driving still prevalent BY KATIE CAMPBELL firstname.lastname@example.org

Nakia Carrothers, Nayiah Dean and Zell Pettis receive a bible from Darryail Whittington, Habitat for Humanity volunteer construction supervisor, during a dedication ceremony for their new house in Oxford Sunday.

The Oxford-Lafayette Habitat for Humanity Affiliate dedicated their 13th Habitat House on Sunday as the Carrothers family was presented their new home. Nakia Carrothers, single mother of Zell Pettis, 19, and Alnayiah Dean, 14, said it was a buyer’s market when the family began searching for a home to purchase. She does admit, however, that the available housing would still be highly priced despite having an ideal market. The family just couldn’t afford to pay a traditional mortgage with long term, traditional interest rates. “It was still really expensive,” she said. “Having a son that was getting ready to go to college, we just needed something more affordable where the interest rate wasn’t astronomical.” Caitlin Hopper, president of the Oxford-Lafayette chapter, dispels the myth that Habitat for Humanity builds homes for free. “We have church donations, but in a lot of ways it’s a self-funding system,” Hopper said. The organization provides nointerest loans and homeowners build up 500 work hours on the home and once they receive their loan, they pay it back over time

without interest. This offers the homeowners a much lower mortgage payment option than a normal payment due to no-interest and low cost volunteer labor. Hopper said the organization is designed to help those in financial trouble afford a home the proper way rather than just simply having someone pay their mortgage for them. “We don’t partner with people who can’t repay the loan because, otherwise, we wouldn’t be able to sustain the organization and continue building,” she said. “The whole idea is to break the cycle of poverty and give people a hand up instead of a handout.” Hopper said volunteers have come out nearly every Saturday since November 2011, with the number of participants ranging from zero to nearly fifty on some weekends. “We have a lot of community members come out, but this semester especially, there has been a tremendous amount of student participation,” she said Justin Kilburn, a community member and pipefitter by trade, said Habitat for Humanity provided him with the opportunity to help those in need in his community. “I called up the local Habitat chapter and found out where they
were working,” Kilburn said. “I’ve worked here five or six times doing general labor, siding, and installing the toilets. I’m pretty proud to be a part of it.” Chris Stasny, a retiree in the Oxford community, heard about the Habitat House construction through fellow church members at Oxford University United Methodist Church. He was excited to help because of his experience with construction work and remodeling. “It’s good to come and do something for someone else, but really, it makes me feel good,” Stasny said. “That’s what I like about it.” Carrothers said those who are feeling low should pay a visit to Habitat for Humanity, who will show them there is always hope. “It’s just an unbelievable feeling to come out here and everyone is working like it’s their own home,” Carrother said. “It gives you a great deal of pride to work alongside people with such compassion. We’ll definitely continue working with Habitat so we will be able to give back after so many people have given to us.” Caitlin Hopper encourages any students interested in participating in the upcoming Oxford area construction sites to send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
Ford Center hosts discussion with Aquila Theatre’s Fahrenheit 451
Though the University of Mississippi was declared “the safest school in the SEC” by Collegesafe.com in 2012, local police officials and Ole Miss students understand that there is an issue of drinking and driving both on and off campus. The University Police Department reported in its Daily Crime Log that there have been only 27 DUI arrests from September to November this year. This is down from 2012 where during the same time period, the campus saw 34 DUI arrests, and further down from 2011 which saw 56 arrests. While some may take this as drinking and driving on campus becoming a lessening problem, Maj. Sheridan Maiden of the Oxford Police Department disagrees. “OPD works very closely with UPD on campus, and any time there is an alcohol arrest, DUI or not, we are in-

Ole Miss Fishing Team hopes to gain support BY JESSI BALLARD email@example.com
The Ole Miss Fishing Team has caught success despite only having roughly 10 active members on the team. Raising awareness is key in gaining support, according to members of the organization. The team competes in bass tournaments in which the winner is determined by the weight of the five largest fish the anglers decide to keep. The team may not have more than five fish in the boat at one time. Each team in the tournament is comprised of one bass boat with two fishermen per boat. The number of active participants does not inhibit the team’s ability to compete,
according to junior business management major and team member Christian Braswell. “We fish around five to 10 tournaments each year,” he said. “Some tournaments only allow one team per school, and others don’t have a limit.” Braswell has been a team member since coming to Ole Miss as a freshman, and he said the team tries to compete in the three major national championship tournaments every year. Fishing is not currently an officially sanctioned NCAA sport, and as a result, members fund the entire tournament and traveling expenses by themselves. See FISHING, PAGE 4

cluded in the judicial process,” Maiden said. “With DUIs, you have to look at the totality of the situation. The number of incidences isn’t as important as the incident itself. As long as drinking and driving is happening, there is still a problem that needs to be addressed.” Both the Oxford and University police departments’ prevention measures go into full swing on gamedays when the population of Oxford increases substantially and many choose to celebrate by drinking in the Grove. Jones does not think the law enforcement is doing enough to deter patrons from getting behind the wheel after drinking. “I don’t think that DUIs are enough, and I don’t think I’ve heard enough people with authority really putting in the effort to warn people not to drink and drive,” she said. Maiden believes that while programs like MADD (Moth-

Not so shiny in Sunflower
BY TIM ABRAM
PATRICIA THOMPSON director and faculty adviser
Here 41 percent of students will leave high school without obtaining a high school diploma. Here only 40 percent of the students pass the English II exam, which is necessary to graduate from high school in Mississippi. Here the average ACT score is 16.3, which will not exactly have colleges filling your mailbox with scholarship offers. The “here” I am referring is Sunflower County, Mississippi. To paint a more holistic image of the woes that Sunflower County faces, I must utilize the United States Bureau of Labor Statistics’ data. According to the 2012 report, Sunflower County holds an unemployment rate of nearly 15 percent.

Teen pregnancies also ravage this small, rural county. To this point, I have painted a rather grim image of Sunflower County, however there is a silver lining in the metaphorical cloud. The Sunflower County Freedom Project is that lining. According to its website, the Sunflower County Freedom Project was founded by Chris Myers Asch, Shawn Raymond and Gregg Costa in 1998. These individuals were former teachers in the area and had a keen sense of the need in the community. The Sunflower County Freedom Project was just a summer program at a local community college, which eventually grew into a partnership with The University of Mississippi. Since its inception, the program has been thriving. The Sunflower County Freedom Project develops programming which directly addresses the ills that plague the Sunflower community. For example, the programming includes: educational travel,

character development, core academic support, health/fitness training, and arts enrichment. Though the Sunflower County Freedom Project does not present itself as the silver bullet to solve all of the problems in Sunflower, the impact of the program is quite evident. Most impressively, 100 percent of the fellows who complete the fellowship attend a four year college. However, the Sunflower County Freedom Project is limited in its scope of impact by the amount of financial support it has to run its extensive programming. We need more Mississippians to invest in programs such as the Sunflower County Freedom Project. The crumbling state of education and life in general cannot be solved without the concerted efforts of individuals outside of the community who care about the well-being of others.

to work the summer in Sunflower County. Organizations such as the Black Student Union have partnered with the Sunflower County Freedom Project in efforts to fundraise for the good work that is occurring through the program. I think the University of Mississippi as a whole, as well as the many unique organizations that make up the university, are poised to make a huge impact for the Sunflower County Freedom Project. Imagine if each fraternity and sorority partnered with Sunflower County Freedom Project. Imagine if each organization partnered with the Sunflower County Freedom Project. Through all of our combined efforts we can make Sunflower County truly shine. Tim Abram is a senior public policy leadership major from Horn Lake.

Minimum wage fallacy
BY CORY FERRAEZ firstname.lastname@example.org
The minimum wage is designed and intended to protect the poor and unskilled. A law designed for the betterment of lower income people in the market. We’ve seen much discussion over minimum wage laws recently, as we often do from time to time. As with any policy, we seldom reference the negative effects of its implementation. Cost-benefit somehow goes out the window while we pander to emotion. Both parties do it, but Democrats often raise the issue, while the Republicans soon jump on board. These laws are largely popular in America. However, there are a few problems with minimum wage laws, so let me spell them out and let you make up your mind about it. But first and more broadly, I believe the reasons for arguing against minimum wage are sound. If you believe in free market principles, minimum wage laws highlight a fallacious world policy view. In an economic transaction, the buyer wants to pay $0 and the seller wants $5. The economic forces at work alleviate the imbalance to come to a mutual agreement of $2.50. Why have laws on wages when they too are subject to the laws of supply and demand? The employer wants to pay $1 per hour while the employee wants $200, the market forces at work in every other good or service are the same in this transaction—the irreconcilable demands by each party turn into a cooperative contract that helps everyone. In a typical transaction, a
buyer wants the lowest price while the seller wants the highest price. Yet the reality of the market steps in to ensure that these economic actors face limited means, both time and money. These limitations ensure competing demands, or the employer realizing he cannot pay $1, nor can the employee expect $200. The laws of supply and demand don’t miraculously disappear with wages and labor. Employers are exactly the same as buyers within the market. They want to pay the lowest possible wage while the employees or sellers want the highest wage. This is always true. The buyer/employer knows that the employee/ seller has other options for his or her services to be used, and the employer must consider many market forces like productivity and credentials that equate with an efficient output of the companies resources. This applies to everyone from fast-food workers all the way up to executives. You also see states pass higher minimum wage laws than currently mandated by the federal government. Some even calculate the amount for a “living wage.” Whether state or federal, it doesn’t rest on sound policy. For both state and federal policy, if private contracts in the labor field are going to be successful, they need a large amount of flexibility. Now to the misconceptions. What are the reasons we hear about minimum wage laws? Well, most say they help the poor and unskilled or they provide greater prosperity to a larger number of people. What studies don’t show are the invisible effects of these laws. If helping uneducated and poor individuals is the goal, why pass laws that will almost guarantee a decrease in
of economic gain and free choice. If we examine it in this light, we stop this confusing notion of playing the poor and the wealthy, and the employee and the employer, against each other. We recognize that the true goal of the free market is to have the most benefit to every party involved. Even aside from minimum wage laws, I believe the greatest fallacy remains in the statement that when someone benefits from a voluntary and mutual agreement in the market, one person must suffer while the other gains. Not so. The purpose of someone choosing to work by agreeing to a voluntary wage is that the employer benefits by the employee’s productivity and the employee benefits by gaining a better monetary and skillbased identity in the marketplace. The intentions of the minimum wage are no doubt good,

a worker’s ability to choose other types of employment? What about other workers who weren’t hired because employers cannot afford to pay another worker a minimum wage, but could bring on another person if he could split the minimum wage in half and pay two people instead of one? What about the productivity of the worker who now was paid much higher than his or her skill set brought? And finally, what about the workers who must be let go because their skills don’t justify their compensation? We can see the harmful effects of this here in our own communities in Mississippi. The most harmed are blacks and younger people. Given our demographics, these two categories are typically the most uneducated and the first people entering into the marketplace with limited skills. Moreover, look at the fastfood industry. Why do people think fast food is designed to be a permanent place of employment for all workers? Fast food, perhaps not the case for management positions, is a relatively low skill-set job. But don’t confuse this with the people that work there while in school or the people who do so to gain more marketable skills in the workforce. That’s the point of these types of jobs. In my estimation, the question should never be: Why are there so few haves and so many have nots? The question should always be: How easy is it for the have nots to rise up the economic ladder, and what policies have we put into place that block this progression? The slow and methodical reduction of poverty doesn’t come from government bureaus and mandates that rely on violent interference with freedom of association; it comes from the power

Music to Blues fans’ ears Ford Center hosts discussion with Aquila Theatre’s Fahrenheit 451 BY EMILY BEENE firstname.lastname@example.org
Musical religion has gained a new hymn, “The Gospel According to Sam.” “The Gospel According to Sam” consists of the recordings of blues guitarist Sam Langhorn released by Big Legal Mess Records. Robert Khayat and Jimmy Hall, former University of Mississippi football stars, recorded Langhorn tracks in 1963 that have never been released until now. When first listening to the record, the time capsule-like music instantly sends you back in time. Deep-souled music pours out from the record, as if Langhorn were sitting out on your front porch with you, guitar in hand, strumming away. Langhorn was born and raised in Oxford, where he was surrounded by music. His mother Camilla, who played in her local church located in east Oxford, instructed him. After Langhorn met Khayat and Hall, the three became friends and soon started making music together. The recordings feature traditional gospel music – the kind that Langhorn was first introduced to as a child. One track, “Keep Your Hands On the Plow,” showcases the raw and simple sound for which blues is renowned while demonstrating Langhorn’s talent. Langhorn never made any commercial recordings dur-
ing his life; these tracks are unique and one of a kind. The tracks are also special because they are one of the first times Langhorn played more than a couple of songs in front of a group. Khayat, former chancellor of Ole Miss from 1995-2007, played football for the university from 1956-60 where he met fellow player Jimmy Hall. The two were both on the 1959 national championshipwinning team. Khayat would meet Langhorn and Hall and play blues and gospel chords. The music on the record was just a glimpse into one of the sessions the trio played together; it was taped on a whim and sat untouched for more than two decades. With the men going their separate ways shortly after the recording, the album is a way to remember the past and bring back to life the memories of small-town musicians just having a good time. Jimmy Hall, who provided the location for the recordings by way of his house, has since traded music for acting and now lives in California after being a part of several plays. The new recording is available at End of All Music, owned by Bruce Watson. Watson is the head of Big Legal Mess Records, an independent record label based in Oxford and distributed by Fat Possum Records. End of All Music is located on North Lamar past Big Bad Breakfast.
The cast of Fahrenheit 451 talks with students during a dinner at the Ford Center Saturday.
BY CLARA TURNAGE Scturna1@go.olemiss.edu
The Gertrude C. Ford Center hosted the Aquila Theatre cast of “Fahrenheit 451” Saturday for a dinner and discussion with students and friends of the Ford Center. Ten Provost Scholar students were given the opportunity to come to the event, along with many theater major undergraduates and performers. “We feel that the Provost Scholars and the students of the Residential Colleges are students who might be looking for something a little bit additional in their university experience here, so we offered this to them,” said Norman Eastbrook, director of the Ford Center. Eastbrook stressed that he hoped any student interested would attend any and all events to come. The event was open to anyone, but as a limited number of seats were available, many Provost Scholars were excited to have a guaranteed seat. The small and personal Studio Theatre held the eight ac-
tors and nearly 40 spectators who came to the event. The cast sat before the crowd and ate while answering questions from the audience. Most of the onlookers were theater majors who had much to gain from the experience. “I think it’s really nice having a theater company that is professional and experienced come through here,” said Jade Genga, senior musical theater and psychology major. “It’s a first hand perspective of what the business is like right now. It’s like a snapshot and we get this instant image of ‘Okay this is what I’m going into.’ And they’re really awesome; they’re really great people to talk to.” The cast and crew were a lively bunch, laughing and joking with each other while still answering questions with a poignant sincerity. Though the discussion lasted for less than an hour, the topics covered ranged from the background and staging in “Fahrenheit 451” and the companion show, “The Twelfth Hour,” to what life was like for them traveling from show to show since

September. Students asked questions about characterization process and discussed the differences between auditioning in America and England, where five of the eight originated. The company was welcoming and open to the audience, helping it to laugh and to learn at the same time. After the event much of the audience had to go back to the stage to perform in “Hairspray,” which ended its exhibition last night. However, for those who did not have to leave, there was an opportunity to speak with the cast and crew individually. Here they were able to answer much more personally and got to introduce themselves to a multitude of budding performers. This evening at 7, the Ford Center will host the performance of “Fahrenheit 451.” Tickets are available through the UM Box Office at the Student Union. The event was one of many that will be held in the coming year. The Ford Center will post upcoming events on an app for iPhone and Android as well as a Facebook page.

DUI, continued from page 1 ers Against Drunk Driving) are helpful, ending drunk driving comes down to personal responsibility. “People should be able to hold themselves accountable to think about the consequences of their actions before they make a mistake,” Maiden said. “They need to think about whether they can afford to get a DUI, and the answer should always be no.” In addition to receiving a strike on the Ole Miss Two Strike Drug and Alcohol Policy, students who receive a DUI are subject to jail time, losing their driver’s license, costly court fees and loss of college scholarships and financial aid. Maiden added that while DUI arrests are fun for no one, they are a necessary measure in drinking and driving prevention.
“If you’ve been pulled over and you’ve been drinking, you will not beat the breathalyzer,” Maiden said. Maiden recalled seeing students put pennies in their mouth, gargle with coffee or soft drinks, and chew sticks of gum in a vain attempt to manipulate the reading. Truthfully, the only way to avoid failing a breathalyzer test is to not drink. “To see a real change here at Ole Miss, we are going to have to see a change in the way people think about drunk driving,” Maiden said. “It’s not safe, ever, and there are no exceptions. Drinking and driving is a very black and white issue that comes down to this. If you’re going to drink, don’t drive, and if you’re going to drive, don’t drink.” Freshman journalism major Bella Ernst noticed the problem soon after arriving on campus, and noted seeing people on the Square walking straight from
the bars to their vehicles. “First and foremost, it’s a pedestrian hazard,” she explained. “There are always people strolling around campus who don’t want to have to worry about getting hit.” Newcomers and ongoing students of Ole Miss are now also having to deal with the closing of Rebel Ride, a free transportation service started in 2004 that took students to and from campus and the Square. Sophomore public policy major Laura Jones said the termination of Rebel Ride has created serious problems for those going out at night. “To avoid drunk driving, the only other free option is walking, and having to walk in the dark while intoxicated can be dangerous,” Jones said. “There are taxi services and of course finding a designated driver, but there are always some ifs about that. Rebel Ride was a constant failsafe.”
The tournaments start at sunup and usually end in the afternoon, according to junior chemical engineering major Chase Goodman. Goodman said the social engagement centered around the outdoor lifestyle is the best part of the team experience. “I love being able to fish a variety of different bodies of water and also getting to talk with other people who share similar interests,” he said. Dr. James Taylor, professor of nutrition and hospitality management, serves as the faculty sponsor for the team. Taylor said he is concerned with the dwindling number of young people engaging in outdoor activities such as fishing; he cited the small number of students on the
fishing team and the lack of campus consciousness about the group as reason for his concern. “Because of my fondness of the outdoors, I have a great understanding of sustainability, and the natural ecosystem,” he said. “I fear that with less of the younger generation utilizing the outdoors as a recreational activity, our society might lose sight of how important and valuable these natural resources are.” Taylor said that despite his limited involvement, he is proud to be the sponsor because the students on the team are involved in a unique club that enhances their mind, body and spirit. “(These students) are doing activities that we don’t hear about,” he said. “These are the college students that we would want our children and grandchildren to be.”

BY BROWNING STUBBS email@example.com
The Matt Insell era got off to a positive start for the Ole Miss women’s basketball program, as the Rebels walked away with a 7459 exhibition victory over Christian Brothers University Sunday afternoon. “We got the win,” Insell said. “It was not as pretty as we wanted it to be. We had some areas in which we let down, and that has to get better before we start on Friday,
but all in all, I’m glad we got the win, and I’m excited to be opening the season on Friday.” With scoring being a big question for this season, Ole Miss had five players step up and score in double figures. Leading the pact was senior point guard Valenica McFarland, who had 15 points and dished out four assists. McFarland clocked 31 minutes, and Insell expects McFarland to play almost the whole 40 minutes, if she can stay out of foul trouble. Helping McFarland was junior

forward Tia Faleru, who posted a double-double with 13 points and 14 rebounds. Ole Miss is in search of a third leading scorer this year, and Insell expects freshman forward Shequilla Joseph to step up to the plate. She posted 12 points and eight rebounds. Senior guard Diara Moore added 11 points, and sophomore guard Gracie Frizzell scored 10 points off the bench. Also off the bench, junior forward Monique Jackson racked four points and
eight rebounds in just sixteen minutes of action. As a team, the Rebels struggled from the field, shooting just 36.8 percent. However, the defense held the Lady Bucs to 30.2 percent shooting. The game remained tight early on until Ole Miss closed the first half on a 19-8 run. Ole Miss led 40-23 at halftime. Christian Brothers made a run and cut the score to 50-44 at the eleven-minute mark in the second half, until the Rebels turned on the gas pedal and never looked back. The Lady Rebels won the rebound battle 54-47, and connected on 18 assists. As the regular season approaches, Ole Miss will work on playing better defense without fouling. The Rebels fouled 32 times and the Bucs shot 40 free throws. Insell said he wants to keep the opponents’ free throw count around 13-14. “We’ll get there defensively,” Insell said. “Offensively, it’s promising. We can score. As the competition gets better, you have to be able to stop people. And we’re not where we need to be right now defensively, but that will be the point of emphasis the next couple of days in practice, and we’ll get there.” The Rebels will kick off their regular season on Friday against the Jacksonville State Gamecocks at 5 p.m. Jacksonville State won their first exhibition contest 73-48 over Miles College.

They are ranked sixth in the current coaches’ poll for Division II and received 16 first place votes. They are a veteran team, as 10 of their 13 players are seniors.

Ole Miss basketball struggles, gets exhibition win BY TYLER BISCHOFF firstname.lastname@example.org
The Ole Miss men’s basketball team struggled through their exhibition with USCAiken, but eventually, they picked up a victory in overtime on Friday night, 75-70. Senior guard Marshall Henderson began his suspension, and the Rebel offense struggled immensely from his absence. They scored .91 points per possession; only once last year did they have an offensive game worse than that. Ole Miss attempted just 11 3-pointers and made two, which would both have been season lows last year. Henderson attempted at least 12 threes 16 times last season. “Our problem was offensively, and some of that was my fault, quite frankly,” head coach Andy Kennedy said. “We’re all paranoid with technology. We didn’t want to show a lot offensively, so we just kinda stayed to a simple ball screen and motion. As a result, I thought we were a little bit stagnant.” Four Rebels reached doubledigits in scoring. Sophomore
guard Derrick Millinghaus led the way with 15, while junior guards Jarvis Summers and LaDarius White both added 13, and junior forward Demarco Cox pitched in 11. Ole Miss was helped at the free throw line, especially in overtime. The Rebels made just one field goal in the extra session, but went to the free throw line 13 times, knocking down nine of them. Five different Rebels made a free throw in overtime. One encouraging stat for the offense, was the number of free throws the point guards attempted. Summers and Millinghaus went to line a combined 21 times, although they only made 14. Last year, the two combined to shoot 5.5 free throws per game Kennedy made sure to get a lot of players involved in the exhibition. Nine players played at least 10 minutes, seven played at least 20. “I was trying to get some guys some minutes. (Aaron Jones) hadn’t played since last February,” Kennedy said. “I thought it was great that Demarco (Cox) played. I thought he got better as the game went
along.” The Ole Miss defense looked much better than the offense. They held USC-Aiken to .79 points per possession and under 40 percent shooting from the field. Ole Miss did struggle defending the Pacers on the dribble, however. USC-Aiken consistently got into the lane with the drive, and they attempted 29 of their 58 field goals from the paint, which they turned into 32 points. In his debut, freshman forward Sebastian Saiz got the most playing time of any freshman. He scored seven points and grabbed six rebounds in 24 minutes. Saiz had a chance to win the game on the final possession of regulation, but his dunk attempted was blocked by Alvin Brown. The only Rebel who had double-digit rebounds was sophomore guard Martavious Newby, with 12. Newby was inserted into the starting lineup in place of the suspended Henderson. “He’s got a great desire; AUSTIN McAFEE | The Daily Mississippian
