Non-profit organizations interested in raising money are encouraged to participate in Belk of Corinth’s upcoming charity sale event. Set for 6 to 10 a.m. on Saturday, Nov. 5, the charity shopping event will benefit local charities, schools and non-profit organizations throughout the Crossroads area. Those who purchase a $5 coupon from any participating charity, such as the Corinth Civitan Club will be rewarded for their generosity with $5 off their purchase of specially discounted items including rarely discounted designer brands. An excellent tool for fund-raising, the four-hour private, ticketed event will give customers piece of mind knowing they are doing their part to help others in need. All participating charities will be entered for a chance to win a $1000 donation from Belk. Three winners will be awarded these donations. “100 percent of the money raised will go to our participating charities,” said Store Manager Jennifer Crippen.” In addition to a private sale just for our contributing customers, Belk will be giving away several gift cards. The first 100 customers to arrive at our store the morning of the charity sale will receive a Belk gift card ranging in value from $5 to $1000. Belk’s Spring and Fall Charity events are the single largest sale events other than Black Friday. Customers who are unable to attend may pre-sell their merchandise prior to the event and return to pick up their purchases after the event ends at 10 a.m. “Many local charities have benefited from the Belk Charity event,” said Charity Captain Angela Warren.“The Knights of Columbus reported they were able to provide 60 needy children with Christmas this past year. The Four Seasons Garden Club was able to donate coats to the Pinevale Children’s Home and donate to the AMEN food pantry.” “This event has also helped Havis’ Kids raise money for their Disney trips and Corinth Theatre-Arts raise money to fund their productions,” she continued. “Several school organizations have raised money for band, cheer-leading and dance teams. Local churches have also raised money for youth trips and other church events. Softball leagues and travel sports teams, Girl Scouts and The Boys and Girls Clubs have benefited as well.” Offered bi-annually, Belk Charity Sale tickets are now available to non-profit organizations for sale in advance of the event. There is no limit to the number of organizations that can participate, the number of tickets they can sell, or the amount of money they can raise, so everyone benefits. All local charities, schools, and churches are encouraged to participate in this one-of-a-kind fund raising event. (Charity representatives interested in taking part, may contact Angela Warren, Charity Captain, at Corinth Belk for more information at 662-286-2216, ext 202, or in store at Corinth Belk, located in the Southgate Shopping Plaza on Cass Street.)

Ole Miss Crushes Georgia

OXFORD — Mississippi quarterback Chad Kelly faked the handoff and then took off running toward the end zone. A few seconds and 41 yards later, the quarterback had cruised through the middle of the Georgia defense and into the end zone untouched. It was pretty much that easy for the Rebels all afternoon. Ole Miss finally built a lead it couldn’t give away. No. 23 Ole Miss rolled to a 45-14 victory over No. 12 Georgia on Saturday, building a 31-0 lead by halftime and a 45-0 advantage by midway through the fourth quarter. Kelly threw for 282 yards and two touchdowns. Ole Miss (2-2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) broke a 10-game losing streak in the series dating to 1996. “I can’t think of a time in my lifetime where a team has done that to Georgia,” said Ole Miss coach Hugh Freeze. Georgia (3-1, 1-1) lost its first game under new coach Kirby Smart and looked overmatched. To make matters worse, star running back Nick Chubb sprained an ankle in the second quarter and didn’t return. It was an impressive win for the Rebels, who have played some of their worst football this season after gaining big leads. Ole Miss led Florida State by 22 points and Alabama by 21 this season before losing both games. “We’ve certainly had experiences that we should have learned from,” Freeze said. Kelly was sharp from the opening series, completing 18 of 24 passes and adding the 41-yard touchdown run in the third quarter that was his last play of the afternoon. Tight end Evan Engram led the Rebels with six catches for 95 yards. Ole Miss also ran for a season-high 180 yards. Derrick Jones returned an interception 52 yards for a touchdown in the first quarter. “When we get in a rhythm, it’s hard for people to stop us,” Engram said. Brian Herrien led the Bulldogs with 78 yards rushing and two touchdowns. Freshman quarterback Jacob Eason had a tough day, completing just 16 of 36 passes for 137 yards and an interception. “There are a lot of mistakes being made out there,” Smart said. “Lot of young guys making bad mistakes. They will have to grow up.” Chubb had 57 yards rushing on 12 carries before he hurt his ankle. Smart said he wasn’t sure how about the severity of Chubb’s injury. Mistake-Free Kelly Kelly’s mistake-free performance against Georgia is a good sign for the Rebels. He had thrown for 953 yards and 10 touchdowns in the first three games of the season, but costly turnovers against Florida State and Alabama were crucial in those losses. Against Georgia, there were no such problems. “Those losses are on me for turning the ball over,” Kelly said. “We’ve just got to keep on looking forward.” The Takeaway Georgia: The Bulldogs were an interesting bunch after three straight wins to start the season, but after being stomped by the Rebels, it doesn’t look like Georgia is anywhere near being an elite team. Ole Miss: The Rebels needed this one after blowing big leads in losses to Florida State and Alabama. Ole Miss proved it still can be a force in the SEC this season despite a tough September. Poll Implications Georgia: The Bulldogs probably tumble in the rankings after being outplayed in pretty much all aspects of the game. Ole Miss: Look for the Rebels to jump a few spots. Up Next Georgia: The Bulldogs host Tennessee next week in an SEC Eastern Division showdown. Ole Miss: The Rebels host Memphis in a non-conference game.

Area teams Corinth, Biggersville, Kossuth, Tishomingo County, and Booneville joined Tupelo, Myrtle, and Baldwyn for a fun-filled and action-packed day on the diamond. It was a little bit warmer this year than it was last year but the event was another success. Each school played at least two games, while the host school played three. Here’s a look at how the area teams fared in the tournament: •The Lady warriors were 1-2 for the day, with an 8-7 win over Tupelo and losses to Baldwyn (7-3) and Kossuth (18-12). They are now 8-10 for the season. In the opener, CHS were led at the plate by McKenzie Patterson, Emilshawua Blair, Lily Null, and Colby Cox with two hits apiece. Blair and Cheyenne Hendrix had two RBI’s to lead Corinth. Blair had two doubles, followed by Patterson and Maddie Essary with one each. Patterson also had a triple. Lily Null got the win on the mound. In the loss to Baldwyn, Michayla Lancaster, Kaleigh Sanders, Cox, and Maddy Oaks led the Lady Warriors with two hits. Oaks had two RBI’s to lead that category. Oaks added a triple. In a slug-fest in game three, Kossuth outhit Corinth 19-12. Tiara Selmon, Blair, and Oaks each led CHS with two hits each. Oaks and Essary drove in three runs apiece and Blair had two. Selmon, Oaks, Cox and Sanders all had doubles for the Lady Warriors while Patterson and Oaks had triples. Essary had a home run. For the Lady Aggies, Jade Barnes, Abby Lyles and Lexi Fiveash had three hits to lead the way. Mason Drewery, Avery Mullins and Arlie Ozbirn each had two hits for KHS. Lyles and Fiveash both had two doubles in the contest and Mullins had a triple. Lyles drove in a game-high five runs, followed by Drewery, Mullins, and Fiveash with three and Barnes had two. Mullins got the win on the hill while Null took the loss. •Kossuth also played the final game of the tournament but due to technical difficulties, no scoring information was available at press time. We’ll recap their final game in Tuesday’s Daily Corinthian. •Biggersville dropped a pair of games to fall to 5-10 on the season. In the first tournament game of the day they fell 13-4 to the Myrtle Lady Hawks. In their second contest, they came up short as Booneville took a 17-6 decision. No scoring information was reported for the Lady Lions. •Tishomingo County won both their games, taking an 8-1 win over Booneville and then winning 6-5 against Baldwyn. No scoring information or record was reported for the Lady Braves. •Booneville split their two tournament games They won 17-6 over Biggersville in the tournament’s third game.
