The rain stayed away, but in its place came humidity for the 2013 Bulldog Bash. It was hot. It was loud. It was crowded. It was a good time. Members of the Student Association worked diligently before the sun rose to get the stage set up. The Cotton District was buzzing hours before Fanfare officially kicked off at 3 p.m. as patrons milled around the restaurants anticipating the big night. Egan Ratliff, a senior at Mississippi State, is a pro when it comes to Bulldog Bash. This was her fourth one. She said she was let down by Jake Owensâ€™ performance last year and was hoping Chris Young would not disappoint. She was at Drifters with her friends anxiously awaiting Youngâ€™s performance, and her last Bulldog Bash as a student. â€śThe crowd draws everybody in,â€ť Ratliff said. â€śItâ€™s everybody coming together and itâ€™s all right here. Itâ€™s crowded, but itâ€™s so much fun. Iâ€™m leaving senior year on a good note with Chris Young.â€ť Beverage and food carts lined the streets. There were other vendors passing out merchandise. Aspen Heights had water and fans to help keep the crowd comfortable. Everyone from children in strollers to furry, four-legged friends were taking part in Fridayâ€™s events. They watched the cheerleaders and Pom squad perform at the Dawg Rally and enjoyed the aroma from the Grill Your Bash Off grilling competition. Slide Ferguson and Kyle Walker participated
in the first ever grill off. They said it was just another benefit of the night. â€śWe get to compete and cook,â€ť Ferguson said. â€śI love the environment. Itâ€™s one big get-together in the Cotton District. Itâ€™s bringing the Junction to the district.â€ť Many children ran to hug Bully and jumped in the inflatables, but Sal Keithâ€™s four children enjoyed the food the most. â€śThey have really enjoyed the chicken on a stick,â€ť Keith said. â€śWe just came out to see what there was.â€ť There were an expected 30,000-35,000 attendees at Bulldog Bash and the lack of walking space agreed to the estimate. Event goers were jammed shoulder-to-shoulder in every crevice of the Cotton District to be part of the self-proclaimed largest outdoor concert in Mississippi. Aside from the musical guests, most people said it was simply the environment of Bulldog Bash that was so appealing. Ty Hingle drove up from Baton Rouge, La., with some friends for the game, and he said he was told the Cotton District was the place to be. â€śIâ€™ve got friends in one of the fraternityâ€™s here,â€ť he said. â€śThey said I had to come out.â€ť Trey Rush said Bulldog Bash encapsulated Mississippi State. â€śThe people ... the environment ... Itâ€™s the whole experience of Mississippi State,â€ť he said. It was after the earlier events ended and the sun set that the lights came on the main stage and electricity filled the air. The energy from the environment reverberated through the speaker and those packed in front of the stage.

County officials Vet school gets $10 million investigate death
By STEVEN NALLEY firstname.lastname@example.org SDN staff Oktibbeha County Sheriffâ€™s Department continues to investigate a Mississippi State University studentâ€™s death. Officers say Dustin Johnson, a 22-year-old geosciences major from Jackson, died early Thursday morning from wounds he suffered in a gun-related incident. The incident occurred around 1 a.m. near Hickory Grove east of Starkville. Chief Deputy Chad Garnett said the departmentâ€™s preliminary findings indicate Johnson died from an accidental, self-inflicted gunshot wound but investigators awaited County Coroner Michael Huntâ€™s autopsy report, as well as a ballistics report from the State Crime Lab. Garnett said he hoped to receive the ballistics report within two weeks, and he expected to have the autopsy report sooner. Sheriff Steve Gladney said the department did not suspect foul play. MSU Relations Director Sid Salter said the university mourned Johnsonâ€™s death. â€śAnytime we lose one of our students, the entire university is diminished, and we extend our deepest sympathies to the young manâ€™s family,â€ť he said.
Man charged with taking pistol into VA office
by HOLBROOK MOHR Associated Press JACKSON â€” A man has been ordered to undergo a psychiatric evaluation after being arrested while acting erratically and walking into a U.S. Department of Veterans Affairs office in Jackson with a pistol holstered on his side. A criminal complaint says Joseph Namihira was told to leave the VA Regional Office on Wednesday morning, but returned later with a .45-caliber pistol. Court records said Namihira was charged with domestic violence in Warren County, Miss., last year after physically at-

The federal government may have shut down Tuesday, but on Thursday afternoon, Mississippi State University nevertheless announced it had received $10 million in federal research dollars. Stephen Pruett is head of basic science at the MSU College of Veterinary Medicine (CVM) and principal investigator for the grant. Word that his teamâ€™s application had succeeded came Wednesday, he said, less than a week before the shutdown. â€śWe made it in just under the wire,â€ť Pruett said. â€śFrom what Iâ€™ve been told (by our) sponsored programs administration, as far as they know, awards that have already been made and money thatâ€™s already been allocated arenâ€™t affected by the shutdown.â€ť A team of five MSU faculty has received a five-year, $10 million grant from the National Institutes of Health to research diseasecausing bacteria and their relationships with human and animal hosts, aimed at making MSU more competitive in pursuit of future research dollars. The grant is part of NIHâ€™s Centers of Biomedical Research Excellence (COBRE) program, which provides grants for multidisciplinary biomedical research centers. Pruitt said the grant was also part of NIHâ€™s Institutional Development Award (IDeA) program, which helps institutions that do not have long histories of NIH funding cultivate researchers who can compete with institutions that do have such histories. â€śWe have had one of these types of grants before ... it ended about six years ago ... but it is still paying dividends,â€ť Pruett said. â€śWe Dr. Keun Seok Seo examines cultures of staph organisms in his do have investigators that were involved in laboratory at Mississippi State Universityâ€™s College of Veterinary See VET SCHOOL | Page 3 Medicine.

The researchers are biological sciences associate professor Janet Donaldson, IGBB assistant professor Mariola Edelman, CVM associate professor Henry Wan and CVM basic science assistant professors Bindu Nanduri and Keun Seok Seo. Pruett said while each researcher had his or her own project, they all examined the relationships between bacterial pathogens and their hosts, whether human or animal. The objective, he said, was to identify molecular mechanisms in the hosts and the bacteria that could be turned against the bacteria. For instance, Pruett said, both Nanduri and Edelman were studying cellular components that bacteria had in com-

that grant that now have independent NIH funding. These days to get NIH funding (as an individual researcher), you have to have preliminary data. By the end of this five year project, (these five MSU faculty) will have lots of independent data. Theyâ€™ll be able to get lots of NIH grants that are separate from this central grant.â€ť MSUâ€™s grant application has been in the works since 2010, and Pruett said it was 368 pages long. He attributed MSUâ€™s success to collaboration between scientists, financial experts, compliance officers and many more, and he extended special thanks to Greg Bohach, vice president for MSUâ€™s Division of Agriculture, Forestry and Veterinary Medicine. In a press release, Bohach said the grant was a testament to the strength of MSUâ€™s human capital. â€śMississippi State has a tremendous amount of expertise in infectious disease,â€ť Bohach
Thibaudeau said. â€śThis NIH award speaks highly of the hard work done by and the national respect of the COBRE team and MSU as a whole. We are grateful and very proud.â€ť Pruett said each of the five researchers would have one mentor within MSU and one mentor outside MSU, the latter of which will be among the worldâ€™s foremost experts in the researchersâ€™ respective fields. He said the grant also provided for other leadership training. â€śThese folks are going to be very busy,â€ť Pruett said. â€śWhat weâ€™re hoping is theyâ€™re not just going to be great scientists, but theyâ€™re also going to be the next generation of leaders at this university and other universities.â€ť

tacking his mother and firing about 25 shots at his father. Authorities say Namihira is not a veteran and that his intentions at the VA were not clear. The regional office processes benefits and is located near the G.V. (Sonny) Montgomery VA Medical Center. Namihira appeared in U.S. District Court in Jackson on Thursday and was ordered held without bond pending action by the grand jury and a psychiatric evaluation. His lawyer, Penny Beckwith Lawson, did not immediately respond to a phone call Friday. Jim Theres, a VA spokesman, said itâ€™s not clear what Namihira intended to do, but he praised VA police for acting quickly to defuse the situation, especially in light of recent events like the Washington Navy Yard shooting. â€śWe canâ€™t be thankful enough that our VA police here were really alert,â€ť Theres said. The criminal complaint said a VA officer saw Namihira lin-
gering around the building at 6:10 a.m., and told him the office didnâ€™t open until 8 a.m. Namihira left, but the officer saw him sitting in car in front of the building about an hour later, according to the complaint. The officer said Namihira was acting strangely and was told to leave after it was determined that he was not a veteran. About 2 p.m., the same officer was working at the front desk when Namihira walked in with the gun on his right side. The officer drew his weapon, shouted commands and escorted Namihira out at gunpoint, at which point he was arrested, the complaint said. The gun was loaded with five rounds, and two boxes of ammunition were found later in his car, the court records said. The court records say Namihira lives alone in Vicksburg. His mother told authorities that he has been unemployed since being dismissed from a medical school in California and dropping out of a school of holistic medicine in Washington state about six years ago. The complaint said Nami-
hira was arrested in August 2012 in Warren County after his father filed a complaint that Namihira had attacked his mother and shot at his father with a .22-caliber rifle. When authorities went to arrest him on that charge, he refused to come out of his home. A two-hour standoff ensued until officers rushed the house and arrested him, the complaint said. Warren County Sheriff Martin Pace said Friday that nobody was injured in the 2012 incident. Pace said Namihira was charged with felony domestic violence on Aug. 21, 2012, and the case was turned over the district attorneyâ€™s office about a month later. Warren County District Attorney Ricky Smith said Namihiraâ€™s father, a respected physician in the area and the victim in the case, asked that the charges be dropped so that Namihira could seek medical treatment. â€śWe just felt at he would provide that treatment,â€ť Smith said. It wasnâ€™t immediately clear what kind of treatment Namihira received, if any.

The Fides kicked off the series of concerts with their bassheavy sound at 7 p.m. Blake Dusenbery, an LSU fan, said he really enjoyed The Fidesâ€™ sound. â€śI love rock music,â€ť he said. â€śThey hit the nail on the head.â€ť Country star Chris Young followed The Fides. He was welcomed to the stage by a plethora of high-pitched screams. Leighgon Hill was one who had anxiously awaited Young to take the stage. She staked her claim toward the front of the crowd before 7 p.m. â€śIâ€™ve been looking forward
to it,â€ť she said. â€śChris Young has been my favorite for a while. Iâ€™m just excited heâ€™s in Starkville.â€ť The energy of the night didnâ€™t wane when the headliner, The Black Crowes, took the stage for the final performance of the night. The band was the most anticipated performance of the night, drawing a variety of ages. Adam Poole, a graduate of Mississippi State, was at his fifth Bulldog Bash to see the rock band. â€śYou canâ€™t pass it up,â€ť he said. â€śThey put on a good show.â€ť Bryan Elmore drove from Columbus with his wife, Jenni-
fer, solely for the band. Elmore had seen The Black Crowes in the past but was excited to see them again. â€śTheyâ€™re the best rock band of all-time,â€ť he said. â€śThis is my high school.â€ť The night ran smoothly and Michael Hogan, president of the Mississippi State University Student Association, deemed it a success. He said it was huge the Student Association was able to bring such big-name artists to Starkville. â€śIt means so much to Mississippi State, but also so much to Mississippi,â€ť Hogan said. â€śThe state gets so much flack, but we bring in good artists and entertainment. Itâ€™s a fun legacy to leave behind.â€ť

Without God we cannot survive!
By GARY ANDREWS firstname.lastname@example.org One of this nationâ€™s greatest presidents was Ronald Reagan. He was a leader and inspired the country with his humor, integrity, moral living, leadership, and wisdom. I am inspired that he was not afraid to show or tell of his faith in God. Many of our presidents in the past have stood tall and spoke of their love and devotion for God and have given our Lord and Savior thanks for the many blessings He has poured out on this great country, we call America. Even though this was only a few years ago it seems that our country has slipped into a state of political correctness and it is damaging our people and our country. We are losing sight of who is totally in control and our nation is becoming less and less recognizable as the Christian nation the world desires to be a part of. In Ephesians 2:12 the apostle Paul talked about Unity in Christ. He spoke about the animosity that existed between the Jews and the Gentiles and how the Jews, Godâ€™s chosen people, considered the Gentiles to be outcasts, objects of derision, and reproach. He also spoke of the spiritual alienation because the Jews considered the Gentiles to be a people cut off from God. The Gentiles had many gods, but they did not recognize the true God because they did not want Him. Arenâ€™t we seeing this in our world today? Arenâ€™t we losing sight of what our forefathers knew to be honest and true? In Reaganâ€™s talk to an ecumenical prayer breakfast in Dallas, Texas, in August, 1984, he stated: â€śWithout God, there is no virtue, because thereâ€™s no prompting of the conscience. Without God, weâ€™re mire in the material, that flat world that tells us only what the senses perceive. Without God, there is a coarsening of the society. And without God, democracy will and cannot long endure. If we ever forget that weâ€™re One Nation Under God, then we will be a nation gone under.â€ť It is time for each of us to truly look into our lives and allow the Holy Spirit to shine through us. Each one of us need to have God first and foremost in our daily lives. If we will do this then our nation will once again be revered as that Christian nation that all countries of the world wants to be part of. Prayer: Lord heal our nation today and let us look to Your guidance and leadership and Lord, let it begin in me. Amen.

Karen threatens U.S. during quiet hurricane
By KEVIN McGILL STACEY PLAISANC Associated Press BRAITHWAITE, La. â€” Pickups hauling boat trailers and flatbed trucks laden with crab traps exited vulnerable, low-lying areas of southeast Louisiana on Friday as Tropical Storm Karen headed toward the northern Gulf Coast, a latearriving worry in what had been a slow hurricane season in the U.S. On Friday afternoon, Alabama joined Louisiana, Mississippi and Florida in declaring a state of emergency as officials and residents prepared for Karen, expected to near the central Gulf Coast on Saturday as a weak hurricane or tropical storm. The Federal Emergency Management Agency and Interior Department recalled workers, furloughed because of the government shut down, to deal with the storm and help state and local agencies. Karen would be the second named storm of a quiet hurricane season to make landfall in the U.S. â€” the first since Tropical Storm Andrea hit Florida in June. Along with strong winds, the storm was forecast to produce rainfall of 3 to 6 inches through Sunday night. Isolated rain totals of up to 10 inches were possible. As of 8 p.m. EDT Friday, Karen was about 235 miles (378 kilometers) southsouthwest of the mouth of the Mississippi River, according to the National Hurricane Center in Miami. It had been nearly stationary for several hours, with maximum sustained winds of 50 mph (80 kph). Forecast tracks showed the storm possibly crossing the southeast Louisiana coast before veering eastward toward south Alabama and the Florida Panhandle. But forecasters cautioned that the track was uncertain. â€śWe are confident on a northeastward turn. Just not exactly sure where or when that turn will occur,â€ť said Rick Knabb, director of the National Hurricane Center in Miami. Conditions were not ripe for the stormâ€™s strengthening. A hurricane watch was dropped Friday afternoon. A tropical storm watch stretched from the mouth of the Pearl River to Destin, Fla. A tropical storm warning was in effect from Morgan City, La., to the mouth of the Pearl, which extends from Mississippi to far-eastern Louisiana. A westward tick in the earlier forecast tracks prompted officials in Plaquemines Parish, La., an area inundated last year by slow-moving Hurricane Isaac in 2012, to order mandatory evacuations, mostly on the east bank of the Mississippi River. The parish, home to oil field service businesses and fishing marinas, juts out into the Gulf of Mexico from the stateâ€™s southeastern tip. â€śThe jog to the west has got us concerned that wind will be piling water on the east bank levees,â€ť said Guy Laigast, head of emergency operations in the parish. Overtopping was not expected, but the evacuations were ordered as a precaution, he said. Forecasters were not expecting Karen to stall, as Isaac did last year. Evacuations also were ordered on Grand Isle, a barrier island community where the only route out is a single flood-prone highway, and in coastal Lafourche Parish. Traffic at the mouth of the Mississippi River was stopped Friday morning in advance of the storm, and passengers aboard two Carnival Cruise ships bound for weekend arrivals in New Orleans were told they may not arrive until Monday. In New Orleans, Sheriff Marlin Gusman announced that he had moved more

Mayor Mitch Landrieu said a city emergency operations center would begin around-the-clock operations Friday evening. In the Plaquemines Parish town of Braithwaite, swamped last year by Isaac, Blake Miller and others hauled paintings and valuables to the upper floor of the plantation home he owns. â€śWe came out to move the antique furniture upstairs, board up the shutters, get ready. We donâ€™t know for what, we hope not much, but we have to be ready,â€ť Miller said. â€śIâ€™m not expecting another Isaac, but we could get some water, so Iâ€™m moving what I can,â€ť said Larry Bartron, a fisherman who stowed nets and fishing gear in his 26-foot fishing boat, which he planned to move inside the levee system. Along the Mississippi, Alabama and Florida coasts, officials urged caution. Workers moved lifeguard stands to higher ground in Alabama and Florida. But there were few signs of concern among visitors to Floridaâ€™s Pensacola Beach, where visitors frolicked in the surf beneath a pier and local surfer Stephen Benz took advantage of big waves. â€śThere is probably about 30 days a year that are really good and you really have to watch the weather, have the availability and be able to jump at a momentâ€™s notice,â€ť Benz said. Surfers took advantage of the waves at Dauphin Island, Ala., as well. And, across Mobile Bay, pastor Chris Fowler said the surf at Orange Beach was unusually large but didnâ€™t appear to be eroding the white sand. â€śRight now Iâ€™m looking at some really gargantuan waves, probably six or 7 feet high,â€ť Fowler said. In Washington, White House spokesman Jay Carney said President Barack Obama was being updated about the storm, which put an undisclosed number of FEMA workers back to work. â€śTo support state and local partners, FEMA has recalled and deployed liaisons to emergency operations centers in Alabama, Florida, Louisiana and Mississippi,â€ť Carney said. â€śAdditionally, today FEMA is deploying three incident management assistant teams recalled from furlough to the potentially affected areas to assist with the coordination of planning and response operations.â€ť Interiorâ€™s Bureau of Safety and Environmental Enforcement, which oversees offshore drilling, is providing updates on oil and gas drilling in the Gulf that has been shut-in as a result of the storm. The National Park Service and Fish and Wildlife Service were securing parks and refuges in the stormâ€™s path, officials said. The Bureau of Indian Affairs contacted the three federally recognized tribes in the stormâ€™s path to coordinate responses and assess needs. And the U.S. Geological Survey was monitoring for flood levels.

Jackets shut out Cougars 35-0 on homecoming
By DANNY P. SMITH firstname.lastname@example.org The Northwest Rankin Cougars were the homecoming opponent for the Starkville Yellowjackets Friday night and they came with gifts. Northwest Rankin lost fumbles at the beginning of each half of play and Starkville took advantage of each situation to score points. Quarterback Princeton Jones capped a five-play, 31-yard drive for the Jackets with a 6-yard touchdown pass to Raphael Leonard with 5 minutes remaining in the first quarter following the first fumble recovery, then Jones scored on a 1-yard quarterback sneak with 7:59 left in the third quarter after the SHS defense forced another loose football. The Jackets went on to defeat the Cougars 35-0. â€śTurnovers should lead to points,â€ť SHS coach Jamie Mitchell said. â€śWe just went about our business. Weâ€™re 2-0 in the division and thatâ€™s all that matters.â€ť While getting their second win in Class 6A, Region 2, the Jackets also improved their overall record to 4-2. Northwest Rankin suffered its second-straight shutout loss after losing to Warren Central 24-0 last week and was struggling to find a rhythm on offense. Not knowing exactly what direction the Cougars would try to take the game offensively, Mitchell was proud of the defense. â€śAnytime you put up a zero, itâ€™s incredible,â€ť Mitchell said. â€śWe had no idea what they were going to be in. They are really struggling to find an identify on offense and playing a lot of different kids in a lot of different places. I thought our defense did what it had to do.

Jontavious Gardner returns an interception for a touchdown in the closing moments of Friday nightâ€™s 35-0 victory for
Volunteers drop home decision
By FORREST BUCK For Starkville Daily News Fridayâ€™s game against the Madison-Ridgeland Academy Patriots got away from the Starkville Academy Volunteers early. Madison-Ridgeland got out to a commanding 21-0 lead after just one quarter. The Patriots ultimately went on to win the game in a dominating fashion 40-0. Madison-Ridgeland finished with 538 total yards and 23 first downs to Starkville Academyâ€™s 63 total yards and four first downs. The Patriots are one of the top academy schools in the state of Mississippi and have a notable division one football prospect in senior offensive lineman Sean Rawlings, who recently committed to Mississippi State University. The game had more to do with the huge size and talent advantage the Patriots had over the Volunteers. SA coach Jeff Terrill acknowledged that his team was at a disadvantage but felt they competed hard. â€śI thought we played with good effort, but every now and then in high school football, a small school gets matched up with a school thatâ€™s a lot bigger,â€ť Terrill said. They were bigger and faster at every position, but I thought our kids fought valiantly but we just couldnâ€™t make any plays.â€ť The size advantage was noticeable from the start of the game Starkville Academy punter Jonathon Burton puts his foot when the two teams took the field and was even more evident into the ball against Madison-Ridgeland Academy. (Photo throughout the game as the Patriots massive offensive line just imposed their will on the smaller Starkville Academy front seven courtesy of Starkville Academy)
all night. The Vols put little to no pressure on quarterback Caleb Shufelt and he was able to sit back in a clean pocket and throw where he wanted all night. SA also struggled at the point of attack against the huge front of the Patriots and it lead to Madison-Ridgeland racking up over 200 yards rushing. Madison-Ridgeland never punted in the game and its first team offense was only stopped once on an interception by junior defensive back Hunter Peeples. Peeples acknowledged that the night was not a success, but that the team can learn from this game. â€śWe knew we were out-matched on pretty much most of the positions,â€ť Peeples said. â€śWe can learn from all the passing because we havenâ€™t seen a whole lot of passing this season. Some of the teams we have played passed it a little but this team really spread us out and we can learn from that.â€ť Terrill also believes the team can learn from the experience. â€śWhen you go back and look at the film and you play somebody bigger and faster I think it can help you play at another level,â€ť Terrill said. â€śWhen we go back in division play and play people more of our size, itâ€™ll help those small corners to have defended some guys that can fly so we think we can spin it into a positive.â€ť Things did not go any better for the offense as it was shut out. The team spent most of the game just struggling to get positive yards and pick up a first down. Things finally got a little better

East Oktibbeha loses to French Camp 43-0
By BRIAN LENTZ For Starkville Daily News CRAWFORD â€“ Traveling to play teams on the road can be tough, and French Camp has certainly experienced their share of tough road contests this season. However, the Panthers were able to take care of business on Friday night, shutting out the East Oktibbeha Titans 43-0, and picking up their first road win of the year. Both teams struggled equally to get on the scoreboard early. The Panthers picked up a great chance early in the first quarter, after senior Jesse Hosket blocked and recovered a punt in Titansâ€™ territory, but turned it over two plays later, as Destin Covington picked off the French Camp offense. â€śWe had some struggles early,â€ť French Camp head coach
Choctaw County wins first Region 5 outing
By JASON EDWARDS email@example.com
ACKERMAN â€“ Choctaw County coach Adam Dillinger wanted to be 1-0 in Class 3A, Region 5 when Friday ended. He got his wish as the Chargers knocked off Raleigh 48-25. â€śWe gave a complete effort (Friday),â€ť Dillinger said. â€śWe came out and played hard in a division game, but it starts all over next week. We have to line up again and do it next week.â€ť On the first play of the game, Choctaw Countyâ€™s T.C. Hatchett intercepted Raleighâ€™s quarterback, which set the tone for much of the first half. Choctaw County fumbled to give the football back, but once again Hatchett came through with an interception, his second one of the night.Â French Campâ€™s Luke McKnight (3) avoids East Oktibbeha defender Quitten Carter, left.

MSU tennis duo loses at ITA
TULSA, Okla. â€“ Play at the 2013 ITA All-American Championships concluded Friday for the Mississippi State menâ€™s tennis squad as the sixth-ranked duo of Jordan Angus and Malte Stropp dropped an 8-5 decision to Memphisâ€™ No. 18 tandem of David Oâ€™Hare and Joe Salisbury in the round of 16. The Bulldog team got off to a hot start, going up a break 3-1 to start the match. The MSU tandem upped their lead to 4-1 before the Tiger duo reeled off six-consecutive games to take a 7-4 lead. Angus and Stropp earned a break to cut the Memphis lead to 7-5, but could not continue the rally, as Oâ€™Hare and Salisbury pulled out the 8-5 victory. The Bulldogs return to action Thursday at the ITA Southern Region Indoor Championships in Tuscaloosa, Ala. The tourney will consist of the best players from across the ITA Southern Region, which consists of the states of Mississippi, Alabama and Louisiana.

MSU womenâ€™s tennis has good day
LAFAYETTE, La. â€“ As the 2013 Raginâ€™ Cajun Classic got underway early Friday morning, Mississippi Stateâ€™s womenâ€™s tennis began action in the Raginâ€™ Cajun Classic and turned in some solid results while battling rain delays throughout the day. Representing State in singles were Rosie Dion (senior), Petra Ferancova (junior) and Timea Guibe (freshman). Dion was MSUâ€™s star of the day in singles, posting a pair of wins to reach the finals of the Boudin Draw. She opened play against Kateryna Lapayeva of Lamar, defeating her 6-4, 7-6(3). The win put Dion in the semifinals, where she ousted Katya Nakonechnaya of Nicholls State 7-5, 6-3. Dionâ€™s two victories place her in the finals of her draw. The rookie Guibe began play against Joanna Nalborska of Louisiana Tech, falling in a hard-fought match 6-3, 6-3. However, Guibe came back in her second match to defeat Nelo Phiri of host ULL 6-2, 6-3. That win put her in the consolation finals of the Etouffee Draw. Petra Ferancova was MSUâ€™s third player in singles action Friday. She met Anna Ruis of UNO in the first round of the Gumbo Draw, falling in a tough match 6-4, 2-6, 1-0(3). Ferancova put up another hard-fought match against Petra Horakova of ULM in consolation play but fell 6-4, 6-1. Representing State in doubles action were Ferancova and Guibe in the Bread Pudding Draw. The duo came out with an 8-5 victory against Southern Missâ€™ tandem of Carolin Drescher and Alex Kitchen. They will play in the semifinals today. The Bulldogs will continue action today in the Raginâ€™ Cajun Classic. If rain delays continue, the tournament could be pushed into Sunday.

Bulldog soccer falls to Kentucky
Elisabeth Sullivan scored her 12thÂ goal of the season as the Mississippi State soccer team fell to Kentucky 3-1 Friday night at the MSU Soccer Field.Â The Bulldogs fell to 3-8 overall, 0-4 in Southeastern Conference action. Kentucky improved to 9-2-1 on the season, 3-1 in league play.Â Sullivan matched her season high set last season and tied for second-most in a year, three back of the school record set by Amy Van Zandt in 2001. The strike came in the 69thÂ minute as a loose ball found its way to freshman Kayla Puzas for a flick over the top of the defense to Sullivan, who ran in and deposited the shot past UK keeper Kayla King to the far post. Sullivan nearly had a second goal in the final minutes of the second half, beating King with a shot from a tough angle only to have it cleared off the line by a Wildcat defender.Â Following the contest, head coach Aaron Gordon applauded his teamâ€™s fight but felt the squad left some chances on the table.Â â€śI am disappointed with the result because I thought we left some goals on the table,â€ť Gordon said. â€śKentucky is a talented team, but I came into this game thinking we could get something out of this result. When you host teams, you have to expect to get a result. I thought we played fairly well in the first half, but we left some chances on the table. In the second half, we had some good moments, but we have to be more consistent.â€ťÂ The Bulldogs had six of their on-goal chances turned back by King. One of those came off the foot of junior Dana Forbes moments after Cara Ledmanâ€™s 57th-minute goal past senior CJ Winship put the Wildcats in front 3-0. The Whitby, Ontario, native fired a rocket from the left side toward the far post, but King dove and managed to tip the ball away at the last moment. Ledmanâ€™s goal followed a 49thÂ minute rebound from Kelli Hubly. It extended a 1-0 halftime advantage that Caitlin Landis established with a volley past freshman Meara Johnson in the 37thÂ minute. Johnson registered nine saves in the contest, while Winship had one save over the final 35 minutes. The Wildcats out-shot State 28-16, but claimed just a 1510 advantage in the second half.

Reds fire manager Dusty Baker
CINCINNATI (AP) â€” The Reds have fired manager DustyÂ Baker, who led them to their best stretch of success since the Big Red Machine but couldnâ€™t get them past the first round of the playoffs. The move came three days after the Reds lost the wildcard playoff in Pittsburgh 6-2 on Tuesday night, ending the season with their sixth straight loss. Baker had one year left on his contract. He took over a rebuilding team in 2008 and led it to three 90-win seasons and playoff appearances in the last four years, their best run since Sparky Anderson managed the Big Red Machine to two World Series titles in the 1970s. Cincinnati couldnâ€™t get past the opening round of the playoffs, however, building pressure for change.

NEW YORK (AP) â€” Mets ace Matt Harvey will have surgery to repair a partially torn ligament in his right elbow, an operation that will sideline him for the 2014 season.
ATLANTA (AP) â€” Mike Minor pitched six strong innings, Jason Heyward had a two-run single and the Atlanta Braves held on for a 4-3 victory over the Los Angeles Dodgers on Friday night, evening the NL division series at one game apiece. The Braves turned three double plays, the most important coming to end a Dodgers threat in the seventh with Atlanta clinging to a 2-1 lead.

By the time it was over, the Red Sox were ahead 5-2 and on their way to the early lead in the best-of-five series. Game 2 is on Saturday at Fenway Park.

Hebron Christian blanks Strider
From Wire Reports PHEBA â€“ David Foster saw a good offensive explosion by his team Friday night. Fosterâ€™s Hebron Christian Eagles beat the Strider Academy Rams 36-0 to start off 1-0 in district play. â€śWe played really well,â€ť Foster said. â€śWe ran multiple guys in the rushing game. We got good blocking and had a good offensive effort.â€ť The Eagles started fast by scoring twice in the first quarter. Collin Moore had a 2-yard touchdown run and Justin Gordon ran it in for the two-point conversion to give Hebron an 8-0 lead early. Later in the opening period, Gordon ran for a 16-yard touchdown run. The two-point conversion failed, but Hebron led 14-0, The second quarter saw the Eagle passing game come alive. Channing Tapley found Drew Myatt for a 14-yard scoring pass. Tapley ran in the twopoint conversion and the Eagles led 22-0. Tapley found Landon Hill later in the second quarter for a 34-yard touchdown pass. The two-point conversion failed, but Hebron took a 28-0 lead into halftime. Myatt also brought his defense with him. He returned an interception 83 yards for a touchdown in the third quarter to end the scoring. Gordon ran it in on the two-point conversion. The Eagles will be back in next Friday when they host Kemper Academy in another district game.

David Ramirezâ€™s point after attempt was be good to make it 7-0 with 4:32Â to play in the first quarter.
For the next score, Choctaw Countyâ€™s Jamarcus Bradley found Hatchett on a 39-yard touchdown pass to make it 13-0.

Bradley would run it in from 9 yards to make it 28-7 just minutes before halftime. Choctaw County picked up two more interceptions before half compliments of Clay Grissom and Marquel Kennedy but
were unable to score on the opportunities. Throughout the first half Choctaw County would force six turnovers including five interceptions. â€śYou donâ€™t go in expecting five picks, but you always want to win the turnover margin,â€ť Dillinger said. On the first play of the second half, Bradley scrambled and took it 65 yards to the end zone.
Ramirez again provided the point after for the Chargers to go up 35-7 withÂ 11:44Â in the second quarter. For the next Choctaw County possession, Hatchett took it down the sidelines for a 80-yard touchdown run. Raleigh scored back-to-back thanks to Tiberious Ellis finding Isaac Dennis in the flat and Isaiah Keyes open across the middle to make it 42-19 with 10:44Â left to
play. Bradley scored his fourth touchdown run of the night with 8:01Â left in fourth quarter to put the Chargers up 48-19. Scoring ended as Raleighâ€™s Zarious Keyes scored from 4 yards out. With the win, Choctaw County moved to 6-1 overall and will attempt to get its second division win next Friday at Choctaw Central.

Nathan Wright said. â€śEast Oktibbeha made some plays early on both sides of the ball, but fortunately we were able to keep them off the scoreboard and we made some adjustments late in the first quarter that really helped to shift the momentum for us.â€ť French Camp finally got on the scoreboard late in the first quarter, as Hosket hooked up with senior receiver Hunter
McKnight on a 24-yard touchdown reception to put the Panthers up 7-0. The Panthers scored again midway through the second quarter, as an interception from sophomore Luke McKnight helped to set up a 6-yard touchdown keeper for Hosket, extending the Panthers lead to 14-0. Just over a minute later, Hunter McKnight helped the Panthers to pull away even more, returning a fumble for 70 yards, giving French Camp a com-
manding 21-0 lead. The Panthers scored two more times before halftime, once on a short touchdown reception by Hagan Box and again on a 21-yard field goal, putting the Panthers ahead 30-0 at the break. The Panthers remained in control during the second half, as senior tailback Michael Erving exploded for a 59-yard touchdown midway through the third quarter, extending the lead to 370. Senior Cole Henson scored the final touchdown for French 5-yard line. Quarterback Houston Clark said though the team did not have much success on offense, the opportunities were there.

East Oktibbeha made a late push to avoid the shutout in the closing minutes, as Tyshon Spencerâ€™s 37-yard catch from John Kincaid put the Titans at the 10-yard line. However, Erving recovered a Titansâ€™ fumble on second down, preserving the 43-0 shutout and giving French Camp their third straight victory after starting the season 0-4. The Panthers finished the night with 267 yards of total ofâ€śIn the passing game, we had people open, (and) we could have made plays,â€ť Clark said. â€śWe had a couple of dropped passes and I didnâ€™t make some

One of the biggest sparks on both sides of the ball came from senior Hunter McKnight, who caught two receptions for 57 yards and one touchdown, while also returning a fumble 70 yards and collecting one interception. â€śHe brings great leadership to this team,â€ť Wright said. â€śHeâ€™s throws but we were basically one assignment away from doing something big.â€ť With this loss, Starkville Academy falls to 3-4 this season.

â€śTheyâ€™ve got players and you are not going to see those big wins in this classification. We certainly werenâ€™t our best, but we found a way. They took the run away from us. They didnâ€™t blitz any in the first half and we couldnâ€™t find many cracks. We threw the ball and I thought we

He found AJ Brown for a 58-yard touchdown strike with 6:31 remaining in the second quarter, then tossed a 60-yard pass for a touchdown to Darius Grayer with 45 seconds left in the third quarter. For the game, Jones com-
pleted 12-of-23 pass attempts for 230 yards and three touchdowns. â€śHeâ€™s still making some mistakes, but heâ€™s playing really well,â€ť Mitchell said of Jones. â€śHeâ€™s got some things heâ€™s got to get better at, but he gives us a chance for sure.â€ť Jones said he was a little â€śirritatedâ€ť that the Jackets couldnâ€™t get off to a better start and score
more points in the first half. After leading 14-0 at halftime, SHS put up 21 more points after Jamie Coleman was crowned homecoming queen. â€śWe had a slow start, but thatâ€™s how we play,â€ť Jones said. â€śWeâ€™ll get back next week and hopefully fix it. I wanted to score as many points on the board as we could in the first half, but just didnâ€™t do it. (In)

Starkville lost starting running back and junior Jacquez Horsley on the first play from scrimmage with an ankle injury. Horsley did not return to the

Grayer, LaDorrious Pittman and Matt Fuller took up the slack. â€śI think he will be fine in a couple of weeks, but weâ€™ve got to get him back for sure,â€ť Mitchell said of Horsley. â€śI was really proud of LaDorrious Pittman and Darius Grayer, who stepped up at tailback and did a good job.â€ť

For Starkville Daily News GOODMAN â€“ Another offensive clinic by secondranked East Mississippi Community College combined with a fourth shutout in six wins this season lifted the visiting Lions to a 55-0 victory over Holmes Community Stephens College in MACJC North Division football action Thursday evening at Ras Branch Field. Highlighted by freshman quarterback/running back Todd Mays scoring four rushing touchdowns and adding a two-point conversion run, the road triumph marked career win No. 50 for sixth-year EMCC head football coach Buddy Stephens.Â Now 50-10 under Stephensâ€™ guidance, the Lions are also 30-3 in regular-season division play dating back to the 2008 campaign. Having now outscored their 2013 opposition by a staggering 392-13 margin this year, including a 253-0 discrepancy in first-half action, the Lions stayed on the ground for their final three scores of the evening.Â Mays, who tied Lakenderic Thomas for game honors with 65 rushing yards, capped his 26-point performance by adding touchdown runs of 4 and 3 yards to complete scoring drives of nine and 10 plays in the third and fourth quarters, respectively. Freshman running back Preston Baker, of Starkville, closed out the gameâ€™s scoring with a 1-yard touchdown plunge, which was set up by sophomore safety Byerson Cockrellâ€™s second pass interception in as many games. Dontreal Pruitt, ranked among the NJCAAâ€™s top five statistical leaders in every passing category, finished with 26-of-37 passing for 326 yards and two touchdowns without an interception.Â For the season, the sophomore signal caller has thrown for 23 touchdowns and only two interceptions.

ARIES (March 21-April 19) If you really want to enjoy your Saturday, defer to someone who has even bigger control needs than you. Putting an ongoing issue to rest will allow greater give-and-take between you and someone else. Opportunities will open up left and right. TAURUS (April 20-May 20) You understand what must be taken care of, but that doesnâ€™t mean that others wonâ€™t come to you with invitations, news or just a desire to be in your company. Know that you canâ€™t push someone -- he or she will have to make a decision for him- or herself. GEMINI (May 21-June 20) Your sense of what works could be distorted because of your playful mood. You could go way overboard in an attempt to enjoy the good life. When you get back from this wild ride, make sure that you have not done any permanent damage. CANCER (June 21-July 22) Youâ€™ll be as playful as ever. Your laughter and sense of humor help take some of the stress off a very touchy situation. Be willing to push someone to his or her limit. Be aware of your budget, and remember that you must stay within your budget. LEO (July 23-Aug. 22) You have fun and adventure on your side. You are willing to plug that energy into whatever is important to you. Donâ€™t forget to relax a little and have a good time. If you head in a new direction, maintain your natural optimism. VIRGO (Aug. 23-Sept. 22) You have a way about you that attracts many people. Use care, especially if you enjoy spending money. You could be less than delighted to see the damage this creates. Understand what is happening with a friend. LIBRA (Sept. 23-Oct. 22) You could be full of fun and high energy. Nearly any contact feels good to you right now, as you are in such an upbeat mood. Nevertheless, a friend could be quite angry or frustrated. Listen to what this person has to share. Think before you react. SCORPIO (Oct. 23-Nov. 21) Remain sensitive to an older friend or relative who seems to be quite upset. This person might choose to express his or her feelings as anger. Recognize how different this individualâ€™s experience of life is from yours and be sympathetic. SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22-Dec. 21) You gravitate toward your friends, and they toward you. As a group, you might decide that it is time to have some fun. Consider going to a ballgame or out to the movies. You naturally tend to beam in fun. Just be yourself. CAPRICORN (Dec. 22-Jan. 19) You might not be as together as you might have thought you were. You could consider trying a new approach or handling a situation with a boss a bit differently. You will get nowhere fast if you donâ€™t give this person the respect he or she deserves. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20-Feb. 18) Youâ€™ll be all smiles as you look at a situation with a great deal of maturity. You might wonder what would be the best way to handle a problem. Until you are sure of yourself, do not act. A loved one suddenly could become demanding.

DO-IT YOURSELF CONSTRUCTION PICKING UP RAPIDLY
With spiralling construction costs and high interesting rates, more and more homeowners are making additions to their homes rather than building new ones. Many homeowners in the Starkville area have recently added new rooms, enclosed carports and garages or extended existing rooms. Some jobs were done professionally; others were done by industrious do-ityourselfers. â€śThereâ€™s definitely a national trend towards do-it-yourself construction because of high labor costs,â€ť said Andy Gaston of East Mississippi Lumber Company. Both Van Landingham Lumber Company and Fleming Building Supply agreed that more homeowners are closing in space around their houses and using what they have. â€śWeâ€™re seeing more and more addition-type construction, and in the past few months weâ€™ve noticed a good many homeowners doing at least some of the construction themselves,â€ť said Van Fleming. Van Landingham doesnâ€™t solicit addition and renovation work because of the high overhead for a large company, but plans are being made to add more do-it-yourself products to their line of building supplies. Adding a room or enclosing a carport can run anywhere from $1,500 to $8,000, depending on the plans and the amount of work done by the homeowner, himself. The Walter Scales in Green Oaks recently added a 16 x 20 foot sun room on the back of their house. The patio had to be dug up, but the sliding glass doors were left in as an entrance to the room. Wanting as much natural light as possible, three long glass windows and a sliding glass door to the new patio were included in the plans. â€śWe used double insulated thermapane glass to save on our heating and cooling costs,â€ť said Mr. Scales. The original brick wall on the back of the house was painted light green to match the other three walls in the room. Dark green no wax vinyl was used on the floor. The furniture is white wicker with orange cushions. The cabinets in the wall storage unit were left open inside so that long objects could be stored. A combination heating and air conditioning unit is hidden in the bookcase by wood shutters. The shutters hide the unit but allow air to flow freely.
THE LOGIC PUZZLE THAT MAKES YOU SMARTER.
1. Each row and column must contain the numbers 1 through 4 without repeating. 2. The numbers within the heavily outlined set of squares, called cages, must combine (in any order) to produce the target number in the top corner of the cage using the mathematical operation indicated. 3. Cages with just one box should be filled in with the target number in the top corner. A number can be repeated within a cage as long as it is not in the same row or column.
Hereâ€™s How It Works:
To solve a sudoku, the numbers 1 through 9 must fill each row, column and box. Each number can appear only once in each row, column and box.
PISCES (Feb. 19-March 20) You will want to defer more often to a partner, especially when it comes to your finances. You could witness an element of the unexpected. Realize that nothing you do at this point will change that situation. Use care with an angry associate.

SOUTHEASTERN CONFERENCE FOOTBALL
Arkansasâ€™ running game could be test for Florida
From Wire Reports GAINESVILLE, Fla. (AP) â€” After watching hours and hours of Arkansasâ€™ offense this week, Florida safety Cody Riggs texted former high school teammate and Wisconsin running back James White with one fairly obvious observation: â€śYou guys like to run the ball a lot,â€ť Riggs wrote. Whiteâ€™s response: â€śI know.â€ť No. 18 Florida (3-1, 2-0 Southeastern Conference) expects its toughest test of the season when it faces revamped Arkansas (3-2, 0-1), which is making strides under former Wisconsin coach Bret Bielema and his run-heavy offensive scheme. The Razorbacks rank second in the SEC in rushing, averaging 237 yards a game. The Gators, meanwhile, top the nation in run defense, allowing 53.5 yards a game. It should make for an intriguing matchup tonight â€” the first night game in the Swamp since November 2011. Arkansas has seven 100-yard rushing performances this season, four more than any other team in the league. Alex Collins, a 5-foot-11, 206-pound freshman from Fort Lauderdale, is second in the SEC in rushing. Heâ€™s averaging 119 yards on the ground, 25 more than teammate Jonathan Williams. schedule with their national title hopes intact, they must avoid a letdown against a Tennessee (3-2, 0-1) team that feasts on turnovers. Murray is 99 yards away from matching former Georgia quarterback David Greeneâ€™s SEC record of 11,528 career yards passing. He faces a Tennessee defense that has picked off 11 passes to match Virginia Tech for the most among all Football Bowl Subdivision programs.
(1-3, 0-1). South Carolina started the season in the top 10 and figured to contend for the SEC and national championships behind a fearsome defense led by All-American Jadeveon Clowney. Instead, the Gamecocks are two games behind Georgia in the league title chase and questioning the defenders nearly every week after squandering big leads the past two games.
Ole Miss at Auburn
AUBURN, Ala. â€” When the Auburn and Mississippi offenses are really clicking, first downs come in a blur, the plays pile up and defenses are run ragged. The Tigers and 24th-ranked Rebels will match hurry-up, no-huddle offenses tonight. Auburnâ€™s Gus Malzahn and Ole Missâ€™s Hugh Freeze share backgrounds and philosophies as former high school and Arkansas State head coaches and offensive innovators. Freeze, quarterback Bo Wallace and the Rebels (3-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) have had an extra year to assimilate, though. â€śWatching them play, itâ€™s eerily similar to what we were going through last year,â€ť Freeze said. The Tigers (3-1, 1-1) and junior college transfer quarterback Nick Marshall are still learning in his first season running Malzahnâ€™s offense.
Missouri at Vanderbilt
NASHVILLE, Tenn. â€” Vanderbilt offensive lineman Wesley Johnsonâ€™s locker room outburst seems to have given his teammates the spark they needed this season. The Commodores are playing much more aggressive. Now they need to see if the approach that helped them win two straight games carries over to the bulk of their Southeastern Conference schedule.
Georgia State at Alabama
Georgia at Tennessee
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. â€” Georgia quarterback Aaron Murray likely will become the Southeastern Conferenceâ€™s all-time leader in career yards passing today at Tennessee. Tennessee will try to make sure he remembers this game for an entirely different reason. Now that the sixth-ranked Bulldogs (3-1, Arkansas running back Alex Collins runs against Texas 2-0 SEC) have survived a brutal September A&M. (Photo by Beth Hall, AP)
Kentucky at S. Carolina
COLUMBIA, S.C. â€” Whenever Steve Spurrier and No. 13 South Carolina need to get back on track, Kentuckyâ€™s usually there to point the way. The Gamecocks (3-1, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) will look to return to form tonight, again against the struggling Wildcats
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. â€” Itâ€™s all about Alabama. Thatâ€™s the message top-ranked Crimson Tide coach Nick Saban typically imparts before games almost everyone outside the football offices will have trouble taking seriously, and this one is no different. Sabanâ€™s priority remains on improving with winless Georgia State visiting today. â€śWe respect our opponent this week, but the focus has to be on everybody getting better,â€ť he said. Coming off a win over No. 24 Mississippi, Alabama (4-0) and Saban know that shoring up weak spots and making sure individual players progress will come in handy sooner or later, whether itâ€™s needed against the Panthers (0-4) or not.
