GL&PS Substations Add New Transmission Line

Mayor Reports On Planning Session At Meeting Tues. BY LAUREN HENRY STAFF WRITER

Mayor W.T. Daniels began the brief meeting of the Greeneville Board of Mayor of Aldermen Tuesday afternoon in the G. Thomas Love Board Room with a report on the town government’s recent strategic planning retreat. The retreat, held on Wednesday, Sept. 12, was to discuss the town’s mission, and priorities for the future. The mayor publicly thanked the staff of the Clyde Austin 4-H Center Lodge, where the retreat was held, and town public relations specialist Amy Rose, who coordinated the event. Members of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen and many of the town’s department heads convened for the all-day retreat to brainstorm a town mission PLEASE SEE PLANNING | A-7

Suspect In Walmart Wedding Ring Heist Gets More Charges


Work continues by the Greeneville Light & Power System to add a electric power transmission line running from the Mt. Pleasant Industrial Park substation to the Mt. Pleasant substation. This photo, taken late last week, shows where the new transmission line will intersect with U.S. Highway 11E — slightly west of the intersection of Hal Henard Road and U.S. 11E.


Additional charges have been filed against a man allegedly responsible for a series of recent snatchand-grab jewelry robberies from Greeneville retailers. Joshua Nelson Hixson, 33, whose address was listed as 265 Old Baileyton Road, was charged Tuesday in connection with the theft of jewelry Saturday from Kmart and Sunday from JC Penney, in the Greeneville Commons shopping center.

A smoke detector likely saved the lives of two occupants of a mobile home that was destroyed by fire early today at 970 Carters Valley Road. The double-wide mobile home was “fully engulfed” in flames when members of the United Volunteer Fire Department arrived soon after the blaze was called in about 4:30 a.m., United Fire Capt. Stacy Brown said. The occupants were Judy Sizemore and a man who was not immediately identified, Brown said. Both escaped the flames without injury.








Meadow Creek Event Raises Funds To Benefit Band, School BY KRISTEN BUCKLES

LETTERS — Writer: Insight From A Vietnam-Era Soldier Dear Sir: The picture on the front page of The Greeneville Sun last week of the convoy escorting the moving replica of The Vietnam Wall was beautiful. It got me to thinking I would like to share a thought with the readers of the paper; and I really would like for all the people of the United States to be able to understand. My husband is a Vietnam veteran. He served in 1968-69 in Pleiku in the Central Highlands, and like most Viet-

nam veterans, he does not discuss his tour of duty. I have often heard different people question, “What does the Vietnam veteran want, or what does he expect?” We were watching a movie the other night, and my husband said that is the perfect answer to everyone’s question! “We want our country to love us — the way we love our country!” Linda L. Hensley Sun Valley Village

IN HISTORY — BY THE ASSOCIATED PRESS Today is Wednesday, Sept. 19, the 263rd day of 2012. There are 103 days left in the year. Today’s Highlight in History: On Sept. 19, 1982, the smiley emoticon was invented as Carnegie Mellon University professor Scott E. Fahlman proposed punctuating humorously intended computer messages by employing a colon followed by a hyphen and a parenthesis as a horizontal “smiley face.” :-) On this date: In 1777, the first Battle of Saratoga was fought during the Revolutionary War; although the British forces succeeded in driving out the American troops, the Americans prevailed in a second battle the following month. In 1796, President George Washington’s farewell address was published. In 1881, the 20th president of the United States, James A. Garfield, died 2 1/2 months after being shot by Charles Guiteau; Chester Alan Arthur became president. In 1934, Bruno Hauptmann was arrested in New York and charged with the kidnap-murder of Charles A. Lindbergh Jr. In 1945, Nazi radio propagandist William Joyce, known as “Lord HawHaw,” was convicted of treason and sentenced to death by a British court. In 1957, the United States conducted its first contained underground nuclear test, code-named “Rainier,” in the Nevada desert. In 1959, Soviet leader Nikita Khrushchev, visiting Los Angeles, reacted angrily upon being told that, for security reasons, he wouldn’t get to visit Disneyland. In 1960, Cuban leader Fidel Castro, in New York to visit the United Nations, angrily checked out of the Shelburne

Hotel in a dispute with the management; Castro ended up staying at the Hotel Theresa in Harlem. In 1961, Barney and Betty Hill, a New Hampshire couple driving home from vacation, experienced what they later claimed under hypnosis was a short-term abduction by extraterrestrials. In 1962, the Western TV series “The Virginian” debuted on NBC. In 1970, the situation comedy “The Mary Tyler Moore Show” debuted on CBS-TV. In 1985, the Mexico City area was struck by a devastating earthquake that killed at least 9,500 people. Ten years ago: President George W. Bush asked Congress for authority to “use all means,” including military force if necessary, to disarm and overthrow Iraqi leader Saddam Hussein if he did not quickly meet United Nations demands to abandon all weapons of mass destruction. A Palestinian suicide bomber blew himself up on a Tel Aviv bus, killing five victims. Five years ago: The Senate blocked legislation that would have regulated the amount of time troops spent in combat, a blow for Democrats struggling to challenge President George W. Bush’s Iraq policies. A powerful bomb killed anti-Syria lawmaker Antoine Ghanem and six others in Beirut, Lebanon. Today’s Birthdays: Author Roger Angell is 92. TV host James Lipton (“Inside the Actors Studio”) is 86. Actress Rosemary Harris is 85. Former Defense Secretary Harold Brown is 85. Actor Adam West is 82. Retired MLB All-Star pitcher Bob Turley is 82. Actor David McCallum (TV: “NCIS”) is 79. Singer-songwriter Paul Williams is 72. Singer Bill Medley is 72. Singer Sylvia Tyson (Ian and Sylvia) is 72. Singer Freda Payne is 70. Golfer Jane Blalock is 67. Singer David Bromberg is 67. Actor Randolph Mantooth is 67.

BILLY GRAHAM — Q: My husband and I don’t think we ought to force our religious beliefs on our children. We believe they should be free to choose their own beliefs when they get older. Even if we did force our ideas on them now, they’d probably just rebel against them later. — Mrs. V.C. A: Let me ask you a question: Do you plan to do this with any other area of your children’s lives? For example, do you plan to let them decide if they can play in the traffic, or eat whatever they want, or brush their teeth? I seriously doubt it. As parents, you know you have a responsibility to keep your children from harm, and to teach them to take care of themselves. You also know you have a responsibility to teach them the difference between right and wrong; if you don’t, they may end up in prison. You love your children, and because you do, you want to do what’s best for them. Jesus said, “Which of you fathers, if your son asks for a fish, will give him a snake instead?” (Luke 11:11).

Why, then, would you refuse to help them discover the greatest truth anyone can ever know – the truth that God loves them and wants to show them His will for their lives? The reason, I suspect, is because you haven’t made this discovery yourselves. To put it another way, God isn’t important to you, so you see no reason to teach your children about Him. My prayer is that you will examine honestly your own need of God – and then open your hearts and lives to Jesus Christ. Not only will He change your lives, but He’ll help you become the parents God wants you to be, as you teach your children about His love – both by your words and your example.

Mid-East Protesters Need To Look In Mirror On Monday, David D. Kirkpatrick, the Cairo bureau chief for The Times, quoted one of the Egyptian demonstrators outside the U.S. Embassy, Khaled Ali, as justifying last week’s violent protests by declaring: “We never insult any prophet — not Moses, not Jesus — so why can’t we demand that Muhammad be respected?” Ali, a 39-yearold textile worker, was holding up a handwritten sign in English that read: “Shut Up America.” “Obama is the president, so he should have to apologize!” I read several such comments from the rioters in the press last week, and I have a big problem with them. I don’t like to see anyone’s faith insulted, but we need to make two things very clear — more clear than President Barack Obama’s team has made them. One is that an insult — even one as stupid and ugly as the anti-Islam video on YouTube that started all of this — does not entitle people to go out and attack embassies and kill innocent diplomats. That is not how a proper self-governing people behave. There is no excuse for it. It is shameful. And, second, before demanding an apology from our president, Ali and the young Egyptians, Tunisians, Libyans, Yemenis, Pakistanis, Afghans and Sudanese who have been taking to the streets might want to look in the mirror — or just turn on their own televisions. They might want to look at the chauvinistic bile that is pumped out by some of their own media — on satellite television stations and websites or sold in sidewalk bookstores outside of mosques — insulting Shiites, Jews, Christians, Sufis and anyone else who is not a Sunni, or fundamentalist, Muslim. There are people in their countries for whom hating “the other” has become a source of identity and a collective excuse for failing to realize their own potential. The Middle East Media Research Institute, or MEMRI, was founded in 1998 in Washington, by Yigal Carmon, a former Israeli government adviser on counterterrorism, “to bridge the language gap between the Middle East and the West by monitoring, translating and studying Arab, Iranian, Urdu and Pashtu media, schoolbooks, and religious sermons.” What I respect about MEMRI is that it translates not only the ugly stuff but the courageous liberal, reformist Arab commentators as well. I asked MEMRI for a sampler of the hate-filled videos that appear regularly on Arab/Muslim mass media. Here are some:

ON SUFIS A shrine venerating a Sufi Muslim saint in Libya has been partly destroyed, the latest in a series of attacks blamed on ultraconservative Salafi Islamists. http://www.— Aug. 26, 2012. As a Jew who has lived and worked in the Muslim world, I know that these expressions of intolerance are only one side of the story and that there are deeply tolerant views and strains of Islam espoused and practiced there as well. Theirs are complex societies. That’s the point. America is a complex society, too. But let’s cut the nonsense that this is just our “problem” and the only issue is how “clean up” our act. That Cairo protester is right: We should respect the faiths and prophets of others. But that runs both ways. Our president and major newspapers consistently condemn hate speech against other religions. How about yours? The writer is a Pulitzer Prize-winning columnist with The New York Times.

The Silence Of Bill And Hillary Clinton BY DR. PAUL KENGOR Bill Clinton was basking in glory at the Democratic National Convention on Wednesday night. Few presidents so love the spotlight. The occasion for Clinton, however, was not himself, but the reelection of Barack Obama. To that end, Clinton’s stumping for Obama presents some interesting contrasts, as the press has noted. Quite unnoticed, however, is a particularly compelling contrast relating to religious freedom — an area where Barack Obama has been a foe, most notably via his terribly intolerant Health and Human Services mandate, and where Bill Clinton has been woefully silent. For Bill Clinton — and for his wife, Hillary Clinton — that silence is conspicuous. Indeed, it may surprise readers to learn this, but both Clintons have been vigorous defenders of religious freedom. First consider Bill Clinton: As Clinton stated in his memoirs: “I always felt that protecting religious liberty and making the White House accessible to all religious faiths was an important part of my job.” As president, Clinton practiced what he preached. He championed (among others) the 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act (passed 97-3 by the Senate) and the 1997 Guidelines on Religious Exercise and Religious Expression in the Federal Workplace. As to the former, Clinton signed it “to protect a reasonable range of religious expression in public areas like schools and workplaces.” Pointing to these actions and more, my colleague, Dr. Gary Smith, who has studied Bill Clinton’s faith, has rightly described the former president as a “strong advocate” of “religious freedom at home and abroad.” That’s fair to say. It is likewise true for Hillary Clinton. Mrs. Clinton long supported her husband’s 1993 Religious Freedom Restoration Act, especially its promotion of religious freedom in public schools. . . Quoting her husband, she noted that “nothing in the First Amendment converts our public schools into religion-free zones, or requires all religious expression to be left behind at the schoolhouse door.” . . . Once capable of making law herself, as an elected senator from New York, Mrs. Clinton championed an initiative promoting religious freedom in the workplace. Specifically, in April 2005, Senator Clinton co-sponsored the Workplace Religious Freedom Act, joining forces (remarkably) with no less than Senator Rick Santorum, her polar opposite. The law guaranteed the right to religious expression on the job without fear of recrimination. This meant, for example, that an

Orthodox Jew who honors the Sabbath cannot be forced to work on the Sabbath against his or her will, or that a Christian can wear a crucifix, or that a Sikh can don a turban. Backers of the bill included a broad coalition of 40 clerics representing nearly every denomination. The bill, which any reasonable person would support, had opponents among Senator Clinton’s staunchest allies. Predictably, Planned Parenthood and the National Women’s Law Center foresaw calamitous instances of “anti-choice” injustice, such as a situation where a pro-life nurse might request to not provide the “morning-after” pill to a rape victim, or a Catholic pharmacist might as a matter of conscience refuse to dispense birth control. For these “pro-choice” feminists, religious freedom could not be permitted to trump their preeminent freedom: their sacred right to an abortion. It was this narrow opposition from radical feminists that might have explained why, as the Village Voice put it, “[Mrs.] Clinton’s office has been notably quiet about her involvement” in the bill. That was then. Today, Mrs. Clinton serves in the Obama administration — though at the State Department, not the Department of Health and Human Services. And today, Mrs. Clinton, like her husband, is silent on the Obama HHS mandate. Indeed, that begs the question: Where are the Clintons now, as the current head of their party, President Obama, continues to stubbornly enforce his HHS mandate requiring all Americans, of every religious belief and denomination, to forcibly fund abortion drugs? Have these fighters for religious freedom said anything at all to the president? Have they voiced even a slight objection? To the contrary, in his glowing endorsement of Obama at the Democratic convention, Bill Clinton gushed about Obamacare, with no mention of the HHS mandate. For that matter, where are the Clintons on Barack Obama’s unprecedented presidential attempt to redefine marriage, which President Bill Clinton once preserved as between a man and a woman when he signed the Defense of Marriage Act into law in 1996? Or, in the end, are Bill and Hillary Clinton merely two more blindly loyal liberals and partisan Democrats who unquestioningly follow their party’s leader? Some things are more important than your political party. The writer is professor of political science at Grove City College, and executive director of The Center for Vision & Values.

The county Air Force JROTC holds a ceremony each Sept. 11 to help students at the center remember the significance of that event. The educational center is a joint effort between the Town of Greeneville and the county to house programs to accommodate students not attending their designated home schools either because of challenging circumstances or course offerings. The center’s students were able to watch the cadets raise the American flag and lower it to half-staff. Two honor guards remained at attention for 10 minutes at a time on either side of the flag throughout the school day.

Nashville To Lose $3M In State Funding BY ERIK SCHELZIG ASSOCIATED PRESS

NASHVILLE — The state Department of Education announced Tuesday it will withhold $3.4 million from the public school system in Nashville over a rejected charter school application. The Metro Nashville school board last week defied an order by the state Board of Education to approve the school proposed by Phoenix-based Great Hearts Academies. The fine is the equivalent of 1.4 percent of the $236 million the city’s school system receives under the state funding formula. Great Hearts had appealed to the state

after being denied twice by the city school board. Despite the order from the state panel and new elections to the city’s school board, Great Hearts’ application was denied on a 5-4 vote over concerns that the charter school planned to draw from affluent white families, rather than to cultivate a more diverse student body. About 33 percent of the students in the Nashville school system are white. Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman said in a release that the department had “no choice” but to strip the funding from Nashville schools because of the refusal to follow state

law giving ultimate authority on charter school applications to the state panel. “We were all hopeful that Metro Nashville’s school board would obey the law and avoid this situation,” he said. “It is our job to enforce state law.” The department said the $3.4 million will be withheld from administrative functions and not from classroom funding. The money that would have gone to the city will now be redistributed to the other school districts around the state. Messages seeking comment from Great Hearts and the Metro Nashville Public Schools were not immediately returned.

‘Miss Tina’ And Her Morgan Horses Get Benefit Of Students’ Service Day Tusculum College students provided a day of service in the community by joining Greene County Habitat for Humanity in a project for the college’s annual “Nettie Day.” Nettie Fowler McCormick, widow of reaper inventor Cyrus McCormick, was a 19th century supporter and advocate of Tusculum College and is recognized as the college’s first benefactor. Over the years Nettie Day has evolved into a community service day at the college, a day to give back to the community. Vicki Culbertson, executive director of Greene County Habitat for Humanity, said, “As a graduate of Tusculum College, I know Nettie Day as a very special day. It is a day to connect into the community and its people to help make a difference with a positive impact. “Everyone at Habitat truly enjoys working with the Tusculum students,” Culbertson said. This year, Tusculum students in the Bonner Leaders Program, through The Center for Civic Advancement at the college, teamed up with Habitat for Humanity. In preparation of this year’s project, Jennifer Cox, with The First Tennessee Area Agency on Aging and Disability, assisted Habitat in finding a candidate in the community needing a little help.


Tusculum College students gather with the recipient of their assistance, “Miss Tina,” who is seated in the middle of the front row, following a “Nettie Day” service project. Also on the front row, from left, are Paul Bergvin and Julia Newman. On the second row, left to right, are: Ashley Shipley, Chelsea White, Victoria Hill, Kalie Smith, Shanice Williams, Cierra Washington and Felicia Waters. On the third row, left to right, are: Jordan Ottinger, David Talley, Sam Underwood, Caitlin Curtis, Luis Zamora, Cierra Ockstadt and Steven Hollingshead. Standing above the top row, wearing a cap, is Patrick Flannery, of Greene County Habitat for Humanity. A local person named “Miss Tina” was selected for the Nettie project. Born and raised in Massachusetts, Tina Sarpori started riding horses at the age of 6. While in high school, she

obtained an after-school job that allowed her to raise money to buy her first Morgan horse. From there she was hooked. Tina raised all her horses from babies. Two of her Morgan horses

had a father that was a 22time world champion purebred Morgan show horse. Miss Tina said, “My animals are my life, my family.” For many years she worked as a horse trainer,

gave riding lessons, showed many of her horses and worked with handicapped children to teach them how to ride and love horses. After a car accident that left her disabled,

Miss Tina moved to Tennessee to keep from parting with her horses, since the cost of living was a little easier for her here. Since her move to Tennessee, Tina said, “I love it here, and the people are wonderful.” On Nettie Day, Tusculum college students helped with Bush Hogging, weed-trimming, disposal of weeds and debris, removal of trash, painted metal porch chairs, and final cleanup. There were 16 Bonner Leader students. In addition, Rachel Edens, Program Coordinator for The Center for Civic Advancement at Tusculum College, and seven individuals from Greene County Habitat for Humanity volunteered for the two-hour project, resulting in 46 donated volunteer man-hours. The students also had the opportunity to experience being around the Morgan horses before they left for the day. Several of the students expressed the desire to come back to visit Miss Tina and learn more about the horses and riding skills. “I am so very proud of the Bonner Leader students. We left Miss Tina very content in the knowledge that the people in our community care about others. and we love to help when we can. It was a stellar day for everyone,” Culbertson said.

Proudly displaying their "hot off the press" copies of The Greeneville Sun, second graders from Towering Oaks Christian School recently enjoyed a tour of the newspaper building. The students were first briefed on the importance of having a local newspaper in their community, history of The Greeneville Sun, general facts about the newspaper, the online editions, subscribing to the newspaper, and advertising. The students learned that The Greeneville Sun is a "living textbook" every day for their community. The highlight of the tour for the students was the opportunity to visit the press room and see The Greeneville Sun being printed. Pictured with the students is their teacher, Carol Cutshall. Dale Long, director of printing and distribution, and Lu Shep Baldwin, Newspapers in Education Coordinator, directed the tour.

Tax Starts on Page A-1 property tax increase, prompting strong responses from the commission and the audience. CIRCULATING PETITION Meanwhile, a petition is circulating across the county, calling for the commission to rescind the vote and return taxes to last year’s rate. While not a formal or binding demand, the petition simply asks that the commission reconsider and rescind its action, said Randy Lintz, who has been organizing people to help circulate the petition. “The [requests] are: to back up, rescind this recent tax hike, and go back to their original tax rate and work with-

in their means,” Lintz explained. “It’s simple and short, because a lot of people are in strained financial condition now.” “Right now is not the time to be raising taxes. Everybody’s having to budget,” he added. “I expect my county to do the same.” “We’ve got several of these petitions out. We’ve got them in several places, and we’re picking up a lot of signatures,” he said. Lintz said that a copy of the petition can be found at the following locations: the Greene County Farmers Co-op, Snapps Ferry Packing Company, Wells Repair Service & Sales, Country Store of Greeneville, Caney Branch Restaurant, 411 Grocery, Farmers Livestock Market, and Animals West Veterinary Hospital. “People are want-

PERSONAL COMMENTS Larry Parman also took the opportunity to address the commission, but was called out by the mayor and commissioners alike for making personal comments about the finances or character of certain officials who supported the increase. “I’d be a happy man if you’d keep your hands out of my pocket,” Parman concluded. “Mr. Chairman, I don’t think that he should be allowed to stand up there and say those things, personally,” Commissioner Quillen stated, addressing Mayor Broyles. “He’s a citizen,” Hensley said. “It is of a personal nature, and it’s hard to determine by the chair,” Broyles replied. “We still have to recognize the rights of the people to speak and to give their input. We would

like to ask the speakers not to be personal. “It’s okay to give comments. You certainly have that right. This is the reason why we are in a free country — because we have that right to speak. We always have to recognize that,” the mayor concluded.

tions for the program. As for many of those who fall under the current tax relief program, the recent property tax increase was largely matched by increases in the state’s and county’s contributions, Walker said. SUPERINTENDENT’S OFFICE Seay concluded questions and comments of the public hearing by answering what he said had been another question from within the community that he said he posed himself to the county Director of Schools, Dr. Vicki Kirk. The rumor had been, Seay said, that Kirk spent $40,000 in school funds decorating and furnishing her office when she took her position as director. Seay said that Kirk confirmed to him that she paid for her office’s furnishings and decorations from the funds she received from her Kay Leonard reward and out of her own pocket. “Not one penny of school money was spent in her office, and she said, ‘I’ve got the receipts to show it.,’” Seay noted. Seay explained that he wanted to raise this point because many of the opponents of the property tax increase had made comments about the school system wasting money. “I feel like it’s fair to her to make that [public],” he concluded. Kirk and members of the Greene County School Board were not present at Monday’s meeting due to a scheduling conf lict with a meeting of the Tennessee School Board Association.

TAX FREEZE? Ronnie Lintz was the final citizen to address the commission. Lintz asked that the commission consider implementing a tax freeze in addition to the county’s current participation in the tax relief program, and requested an explanation of the two programs. County Trustee Dan Walker answered the inquiries, explaining that the tax freeze became an option back in 2008, but that the commission preferred instead to remain with the county’s match to the tax relief program. The state tax relief program provides a discount to qualifying individuals on their property taxes in the form of reimbursements. The county provides a 30 percent match to this reimbursement. The tax freeze program would have superseded the relief program, however, and would have actually “frozen” taxes for qualifying citizens at that current rate. The very few counties that chose to go this route have not been pleased with the results, Walker said. Administration of the program alone could be trying, he added, because the tax freeze does not prohibit increases prompted by property improvements and requires yearly inspections of participants’ property and qualifica-

She was preceded in death by her husband: Robert Hance; two sons: Frankie Hance and Niney Hance; a sister: Susie Owens; and a brother: Robert Sisk. The funeral service will be held at 2 p.m. Sunday at Hartman Chapel United Methodist Church. The Rev. Jim Fain and the Rev. Charles Fillers will officiate. In lieu of flowers, memorial contributions may be made to Jeffers Funeral & Cremation Services to help defray funeral expense.

‘SELF-SERVING’ On Monday, Judith Sexton directly asked the commission to rescind the vote. “In my opinion, this was a self-serving process at the expense of most property- owners,” Sexton said. She later added, “Since only 10 commissioners voted to raise the property taxes and it was in their self interest that the property tax of 20 cents was imposed on property owners, then it should be rescinded. “Some day you will have to stand before God and give an account of your actions,” she concluded. This prompted a short outburst from commissioners and members of the audience, with Mayor Alan Broyles stepping in to remind everyone to remain within order. Commissioner Robin Quillen asked to reply to Sexton’s comments, and Broyles granted permission. “I don’t know how we did it in a self-serving fashion. We all pay land taxes,” Quillen said. “I read my Conf lict of Interest [statement], as did others. “I pay my taxes, as do others. I put myself on the 20-cent tax increase, just like everybody else. We were pushed into a corner.” Commissioner Fred Malone was the next to speak, sharing that he has approximately 150 acres. “As far as I know, I voted for the tax increase on my own property, as well as everybody else’s.”

CALL FOR ORDER Commissioner Hilton Seay questioned a reference that Sexton had made in stating that “a majority of the public appreciated” the vote of those who voted against the tax increase. Sexton replied that “a good majority” of those she has spoken to in the community have expressed their opposition to the property tax increase. “The night we voted on taxes there was no room in here for [all of the] people wanting a tax increase,” Commissioner Jan Kiker countered. Commissioner Ted Hensley, however, stood up to thank Sexton for her input. “The majority of the taxpayers stood against this and are angry as all get-out,” he said. “Yes, they are!” Sexton agreed.

Members of the South Greene Band and Color Guard perform at Saturday’s Meadow Creek Community Day at Meadow Creek Presbyterian Church. The event served as a fundraiser for both the band program and Nolachuckey Elementary School.

to raise at least $5,000 for the two schools. Modern Woodmen will match any funds raised up to $2,500, he added. Tabitha Reynolds, a teacher at Nolachuckey, came with her 2-yearold. This was his second year at the event, but he was far more active and able to enjoy the festivities this year, she said with a laugh. She praised being able to have a clean, safe environment to which she could bring children to play and have fun.

Planning Starts on Page A-1 statement and strategic priorities for the future. At the board meeting Tuesday afternoon, City Adminsitor Todd Smith presented the board members with two proposed mission statements. The board voted for Smith to prepare two more for the board to compare and consider. PROPERTY ISSUE The Board of Mayor and Aldermen discussed the possibility of leasing a parcel of land near the EastView Recreational Center to the nearby medical office building that houses East View Eye Care, P.C. at 1000 Tusculum Blvd. Currently, part of the office’s parking lot extends into town-owned property. The discussion centered around whether







the town wanted to sell the property or lease it. The board took action to allow Smith to write up a lease. Alderman Keith Paxton brought up the point that EastView Elementary School is nearby and wondered if it may be in the best interest of the town to keep ownership and merely lease

the land. “I’d rather lease it out due to the proximity to the school,” Paxton said. Paxton said it was important for the city to keep control of the land in case the school needed the property for any reason. Mayor W.T. Daniels agreed. “I don’t think it is

a good idea to release property we may need one day,” he said. Alderman Sarah Webster wondered if the lease could be written so as to allow the EastView Recreational Center to use the parking lot in question during evening hours after the business closes. Webster said that the

Charges Starts on Page A-1 He had already been charged with theft over $500 but less than $1,000 following the snatch-and-run theft Monday afternoon of a diamond ring from the Greeneville Walmart. In addition, he was charged Tuesday with two counts of theft over $1,000 and three counts of forgery for an unrelated incident involving stolen checks. Hixson is believed to have been staying at an address in the 100 block of Fry Street, where he was taken into custody early Tuesday. He initially also gave police an address in Knoxville. KMART THEFT On Saturday afternoon, Hixson is alleged to have entered the Kmart in the Greeneville Commons and approached a clerk at the jewelry counter, asking to look at mens’ and ladies’ rings. He fled with a goldand-silver wedding band with diamonds priced at $840 and a 10-karat diamond bridal set worth $3,040. “The defendant was captured on the store’s surveillance video taking the jewelry from the clerk and leaving the store without making payment,” Greeneville police Detective Lt. Ray Allen Jr. said in a report. The jewelry from K mart is valued at $ 4,180, the report said. JC PENNEY THEFT T he method was much the same Sunday afternoon when a man entered the JC Penney store in the Greeneville Commons. “The defendant took jewelry from the clerk that was assisting him and ran from the store without making payment,” the report said. An earlier report said the suspect asked to see a 14-karat diamond ring, and f led from the store with the ring to a waiting car. The ring is valued at $1,495, Allen’s report said. WALMART THEFT About 7:15 p.m. Monday, a man walked up to the jewelry counter at Walmart and asked to look at a wedding ring set. After the clerk handed it to him, he ran out of the store, according to police reports. Store security video showed a man running out a side door and getting into an oldermodel maroon Oldsmobile Cutlass occupied by three other people, a report said. W hen Hixson was located at 107 Fry St., he was wearing a similar jacket and had the same tattoo on his leg described by witnesses at Walmart.

Rec Center regularly has parking issues during many of its night events and said the added parking would be beneficial. The proposed area for lease will be about 0.34 acres. The current parking lot accounts for 0.19 acres, and the lease would include a green space for the parking lot to expand in the future. The town ownership of the property was discovered when the building was recently sold. The title search for the real estate transaction showed that the town actually owns part of the land on which the parking lot sits. POOL HALL In other business, the board approved an application for a pool room permit for Jordy’s Downtown Billiards, at 125 W. Depot St. Police chief Terry Cannon reported that an investigation of the applicant showed nothing to be in conf lict

with the city ordinances regarding operating a pool room. The board approved the application with little discussion. FACEBOOK T he Tow n of Greeneville now has a social media presence, Smith announced at the close of the meeting. “If you are a Facebooker, ‘like’ us,” he said. Smith reported that the new town Facebook page had over 100 “likes” in less than 24 hours. BEER BOARD The Greeneville Beer Board convened after the Board of Mayor and Aldermen adjourned, to consider an application for a beer permit for onpremise consumption at Ricardo’s Italian Village, 1240 E. Andrew Johnson Hwy. The board approved the application with little discussion.

U.S. Housing Starts Rose 2.3 Percent In August BY MARTIN CRUTSINGER AP ECONOMICS WRITER

JOSHUA NELSON HIXSON After being informed of his Miranda rights, Hixson “stated that he went to Walmart and was handed the ring set and then f led from the store,” the report said. The ring set is valued at $ 998. Hixson sold it on Anderson Street for $100, the report said. The rings were recovered and placed into evidence, the report said. FORGED CHECKS Hixson was also charged Tuesday with three counts of forgery. On Sept. 5, 6 and 7, Hixson allegedly cashed checks ay First Tennessee Bank branches that were purportedly from an account-holder. T he checks were stolen, and the account-holder’s signature was forged, Allen’s report said. The three stolen checks totaled $1,150. The victim told investigators the checks had been stolen from her house, the report said. Hixson is shown on ba n k sur veillance video passing the forged checks, the report said. COURT APPEARANCE Additional bond of $17,500 was added for the charges filed against Hixson Tuesday. He was being held on $10,000 bond in connection with the alleged jewelry theft from Walmart. Hixson was sched-

WASHINGTON (AP) — U.S. builders started work on more homes in August, driven by the fastest pace of single-family home construction in more than two years. The increase points to steady progress in the housing recovery. The Commerce Department said today that construction of homes and apartments rose 2.3 percent to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 750,000 last month. That’s up from 733,000 in July, which was revised lower from last month’s initial estimate. Single-family housing starts rose 5.5 percent to an annual rate of 535,000 homes, the best pace since April 2010. Apartment construction, which can be volatile from month to month, fell 4.9 percent. Applications for building permits, a good sign of future construction, fell to an annual rate of 803,000. Still, that’s down from a four-year high of 811,000 in July, which was revised higher. The rate of home construction has risen nearly 60 percent since hitting a recession low of 478,000 in April 2009. It’s still half the pace considered healthy. But the steady gains suggest the housing recovery could endure. “Housing is clearly in a recovery mode,” said Jim O’Sullivan, chief U.S. economist at High Frequency Economics. He said home construction should add about 0.3 percentage point to overall economic growth this year. The broader economy may also benefit from recent and more sustainable gains in home prices. When that happens, Americans typically feel wealthier and spend more. Consumer spending drives 70 percent of the economic growth. The August gains in housing starts were uneven across the country. They were led by a sharp 20.7 percent increase in new construction of homes and

Fire Starts on Page A-1 “Everybody made it out. They had a smoke detector, and that’s what saved their lives,” Brown said. “It woke them up. He woke up, and the house was get-

ting full of smoke.” The fire started where electrical wiring goes into the mobile home. “I think [the cause] is probably electrical. It started where the electrical [wires] hit the house,” Brown said. Two United trucks and 11 firefighters were at the

apartments in the Midwest. Starts also rose 3.7 percent in the South. But they fell 12.6 percent in the Northeast and 4.3 percent in the West. Confidence among builders rose in September to the highest level in more than six years, according to a survey released Tuesday by the National Association of Home Builders/Wells Fargo. And builders are more confident that sales will improve over the next six months, the survey noted. Sales of both new and previously occupied homes are running ahead of last year. Home prices are increasing more consistently, in part because the supply of homes has shrunk and foreclosures have eased. And mortgage rates remain near record lows, a strong enticement for potential buyers with good credit. Even with the gains, the housing market remains weak. Many would-be buyers are having difficulty qualifying for loans or can’t afford the larger down payments being required by banks. Though new homes represent less than 20 percent of the housing sales market, they have an outsize impact on the economy. Each home built creates an average of three jobs for a year and generates about $90,000 in tax revenue, according to the NAHB’s data. The Federal Reserve last week announced new stimulus measures intended to keep mortgage rates low for the next few years. Fed Chairman Ben Bernanke said the bank would purchase $40 billion of mortgage-backed securities each month until the job market improves “substantially.” That could push down longer-term interest rates and spur more borrowing and spending. The Fed also hopes that lower mortgage rates will accelerate the housing market recovery and boost home prices. That, in turn, could make people feel wealthier and more willing to spend, which would bolster economic growth. scene, assisted by a tanker truck from the Mosheim Volunteer Fire Department.

Coast Guard Calls Off Search For Cruise Ship Passenger MIAMI (AP) — The U.S. Coast Guard has suspended its search for a Tennessee woman who fell off a cruise ship into the Atlantic Ocean off Florida. Royal Caribbean says the Allure of the Seas was headed to Nassau, the Bahamas, when “a guest witnessed another guest going overboard” Sunday night. A surveillance camera also caught the woman’s fall. The Coast Guard says its crews searched more than 2,300 square miles by air and sea before calling off the search Tuesday. The FBI is investigating what caused the 21-yearold woman to fall overboard. The Coast Guard says the woman is from Bartlett, Tenn. No other information about her was immediately available.

Chicago Students Returning To Class After Strike Ends BY TAMMY WEBBER AND SOPHIA TAREEN ASSOCIATED PRESS

CHICAGO (AP) — Students prepared to return to class today after Chicago teachers voted to suspend their first strike in a quarter century, shutting 350,000 children out of school, disrupting the daily routines of thousands of families and making the city’s schoolyards a flashpoint for union rights and public school reforms across the country. Union delegates voted overwhelmingly Tuesday night to suspend the walkout after discussing a proposed contract settlement with the nation’s third largest school district. They said the contract wasn’t perfect but included enough concessions — including on new teacher evaluations, recall rights for laid-off teachers and classroom conditions — to go back to work while they prepare to put it to a vote by more than 26,000 teachers and support staff in coming weeks. “I miss the kids,” said Symantha Lancaster, a delegate who works in career services, based at an elementary school. “I know we’re fighting for a cause (but) I want to go back.” Parents say they are relieved the strike was over and are looking forward to finding teachers behind desks instead of on the picket lines outside schools. It meant the end of hassles trying to find alternative activities for their children, or dropping them at one of more than 140 schools the district kept open for several hours a day so they could be safe and eat breakfast and lunch. “I am elated. I couldn’t be happier,” said Erica Weiss, who had to leave work in the middle of the day to pick up her 6-year-old daughter. “I have no one else to watch her. ... I can’t even imagine the people who could have possibly even lost their jobs over having to stay home with their kids because they have no alternate care. It just put everyone in a pickle.” Wilonda Cannon, a single mother raising her four children in North Lawndale, a West Side neighborhood beset by gang shootings and poverty, said she was relieved that her two youngest kids would be returning to class after spending the last seven school days with their grandfather. She said she hoped the agreement was the beginning of something new for

Chicago’s public school system, which has long struggled with high drop-out rates and low test scores. It will take months if not years before parents and teachers will see whether the changes and contract provisions pay off for students. “I don’t know all the ins and outs (of the contract negotiations) ... but it does seem as though it’s a step in the right direction,” Cannon said. Mayor Rahm Emanuel — who filed a lawsuit this week to try to force teachers back to work — called the settlement “an honest compromise.” Union leaders pointed to concessions by the city on how closely teacher evaluations will be tied to student test scores and to better opportunities for teachers to retain their jobs if schools are closed by budget cuts. “We said that we couldn’t solve all the problems of the world with one contract, and it was time to end the strike,” said Chicago Teachers Union President Karen Lewis. With an average salary of $76,000, Chicago teachers are already among the highest-paid in the nation. The district’s final proposal included an average 7 percent raise over three years, with additional raises for experience and education. But the evaluations and job security measures stirred the most intense debate. The union said the evaluation system relied too heavily on test scores and did not take into account outside factors that affect student performance such as poverty, violence and homelessness. The union also pushed to give laidoff teachers first dibs on open jobs anywhere in the district. The district said that could prevent principals from hiring the teachers they thought most appropriate for the position. The tentative settlement proposed giving laidoff teachers first shot at schools that absorbed their former students and filling half of district openings from a pool of laid-off teachers. Susan Hickey, a school social worker, said she is eager to learn how the students she counsels fared over the summer. “How are they? Are they OK?” she said. “I’m glad to be back for all kinds of reasons.” ——— Associated Press writer Jason Keyser contributed to this story.

Army Tests Body Armor Tailored For Female Soldiers FORT CAMPBELL, Ky. (AP) — Female soldiers from Fort Campbell deploying to Afghanistan will field test the first Army body armor that is shorter and better tailored specifically to fit women’s physiques. Members of a female engagement team from the 101st Airborne Division, who will be directly interacting with Afghan women during the coming deployment, have been equipped with the female prototypes of the newest generation of Army tactical vests. On Tuesday at the Army installation on the Tennessee-Kentucky state line, the female soldiers showed the new features of the vests during qualification trials with their M4A1 rifles. The 101st Airborne Division first suggested the idea of a better fitting vest for women in 2009 after female soldiers said that they often had trouble bending over, getting in and out of tight spaces like military vehicles, or posi-

tioning their rifles against their shoulders, said Maj. Joel Dillon, the Army’s assistant product manager for the vests. Dillon said the long plates inside the vests would rub against their hips and cut into their thighs when they sat down. After a lot of testing and measurements, the Army came up with a vest that is shorter to accommodate smaller torsos and has tailoring to fit closer to women’s chests. The new vest eliminates gaps between the material and the body and can be fitted with smaller side ballistic inserts for small waist sizes. “With a vest that is too long, if they lay their rifle on the ground or drop it, it’s very hard to bend over to pick it up because that plate digs into their side. Now they can bend down and touch their toes and so they are more mobile and therefore you can get additional safety because you can perform better,”

he said. The vest has a lighter feel because it won’t rest on the female soldier’s shoulders like the male versions do, Dillion said. The need for better-fitting armor became clear as women in the Army have been fighting on the front lines of Iraq and Afghanistan for years, Dillon said. He noted that women now make up 14 percent of the Army and are closer to combat than they have been previously. “These female engagement team soldiers will be going on patrol with infantry units, engaging with the female populace. Because of that, they are going to be on the front lines, so we want them to be the first to be fitted with this new armor,” he said. Based on comments from 19 female soldiers wearing the new body armor, the Army will continue to make adjustments before going into large-scale production for the rest of the Army.

Tusculum (8-2 overall) has now won seven straight matches and sits atop the SAC standings with a perfect 3-0 mark in league play. The Lady Pioneers are heavy on upperclassmen this season, with four seniors and three juniors on the roster. The four members of the senior class – Sam Underwood, Melanie Gibson, Alyssa Raterman and Bailee Price – have all been starters since they were freshmen. “Our upperclassmen have tried to push the emotion but stay steady at the same time,”

One of the strengths of the Tusculum volleyball team this season is the abundance of experience on the roster. Head coach Michael Robinson needed every bit of it Tuesday night. Tusculum fell one set behind rival CarsonNewman on two different occasions before ultimately rallying to force a fifth-and-deciding frame. The Lady Pioneers then trailed 9-6 in that set, but managed to storm back to capture a South Atlantic Conference victory at Pioneer Arena. The final match scores were 19-25, 25-16, 27-29, 25-21 and 15-11. “If we would have been in this same match last year, we probably would have come out on the opposite end,” Robinson said. “Our upperclassmen, the ones that have been here three or four years, they were vital in our success tonight.” “I couldn’t be more proud of the leadership those girls provided tonight (when we faced adversity).” Tusculum was coming off the biggest win in program history, a 3-1 decision over No. 16 Wingate Saturday that snapped the Lady Bulldogs’ 83-match conference winning streak.

It was a nice move by Athletic Director Dave Hart and the UT Athletics Board. As a player and as a coach for the Volunteers, Majors excelled, and his feats certainly needed to be recognized. Seeing Johnny Majors Saturday at Knoxville reminded me of his visit to Greeneville back in 2001 (has it really been that long ago?) as guest speaker for the Boys & Girls Club’s Champions Dinner. He sat down with me in the lobby of the General Morgan Inn and talked for an hour about his playing days, about his time as coach at Iowa State, Pittsburgh and Tennessee, and about his life in general. At that time, there was a lot of bitterness in his voice. He had become so far removed from his alma mater due to that bitterness, that he had returned to Tennessee only once since 1992, and that was in 2000 when he attended a reunion of the 1990 Sugar Bowl championship team and was introduced at halftime to a rousing roar of approval. It was in 1992 that Majors had heart surgery, and Phillip Fulmer took over the program in his absence. Majors would not return the following year. Majors felt a lack of loyalty of some members of his staff and non-support from then Athletic Director Doug Dickey and then president Joe Johnson led to his departure from the school. I recall that on the day I spoke with him I never pressed him to talk about his feelings of leaving the Volunteers because I knew it was still a sore spot with him. He did volunteer some thoughts, though, and he left no doubt that he harbored some ill feelings, particularly toward Coach Fulmer. You could see the hardness in his eyes when he told me on that day, “I left UT with a winning program. I never had the luxury of taking over as a coach and having it laid out on a silver platter.” I can also recall him speaking of his playing days for Tennessee as a hard-nosed tailback who probably should have won the Heisman Trophy. As a coach, he talked PLEASE SEE MAJORS | B4

Vols’ Second-Half Struggles Continue Against Top Teams BY STEVE MEGARGEE AP SPORTS WRITER

KNOXVILLE — After continually falling apart in the second half of Southeastern Conference games last season, Tennessee entered this year intent on competing for four quarters against the top teams on its schedule. Early indications suggest the Volunteers aren’t quite there yet. Slowly, they’re making progress. Instead of merely staying close until halftime Saturday against Florida, the Vols led late in the third quarter. But their collapse in the final 18 1/2 minutes of a 37-20 loss to the Gators revealed some bad habits they must kick in order to avoid a third straight losing season. “I’m not going to point any fingers, but I felt like some guys, we looked at the scoreboard and kind of got down on ourselves,” sophomore offensive tackle Antonio Richardson said. “That’s what we’ve been putting an emphasis on.

No matter what that scoreboard says, we’re trying to renew our brand as a team that plays four quarters.” Tennessee (2-1) tries to recover Saturday against Akron (1-2) before entering a grueling stretch that could define its season. After the Akron game, the Vols face four consecutive ranked conference foes: No. 5 Georgia, No. 23 Mississippi State, No. 1 Alabama and No. 7 South Carolina. The Georgia, Mississippi State and South Carolina games are all on the road. Tennessee’s only previous game against a ranked team this season was the loss to Florida, which rose from 18th to 14th this week. The Vols faced a similar gauntlet last year and lost four straight October games to Georgia, LSU, Alabama and South Carolina. Perhaps the most troublesome part of the Florida game is that it followed a familiar script. Florida outscored Tennessee 24-0 and outgained the PLEASE SEE VOLS | B4

Baker Coaches In 3,000th Game, Reds Move Toward Title CHICAGO (AP) — Homer Bailey pitched effectively into the eighth inning, Ryan Hanigan hit a three-run double and Cincinnati moved closer to the NL Central title with a 3-1 win over the Cubs Tuesday night. The Reds’ Dusty Baker managed his 3,000th major league game, and Cincinnati reduced its magic number to four over the Cardinals to clinch the division. Bailey (12-9) took a twohit shutout into the eighth before Darwin Barney had his second single of the night and pinch-hitter Bryan LaHair hit an RBI double to make it 3-1.

With one out in the 10th, pinch-hitter Rob Brantly was walked by Cory Gearrin (0-1), and Gorkys Hernandez was hit by a pitch. Following a strikeout, Reyes hit a blooper that fell in front of a diving Jason Heyward in right field, and Brantly scored without a play. Atlanta lost to Miami for only the fourth time in 14 meetings. The Braves rallied from a 3-0 deficit in the ninth to tie the game. Heyward doubled to start the inning against Steve Cishek, and Chipper Jones walked on a 3-2 pitch. With one out, Dan Uggla singled home a run, and Brian McCann followed with a tying two-run double off Mike Dunn. D’BACKS 3, PADRES 2 Ian Kennedy pitched eight innings to earn his 14th victory, Miguel Montero drove in two runs with two doubles and the Diamondbacks finally got a home win against the Padres.

Majors Starts on Page B-1 freely about beating Alabama during Bear Bryant’s final season as coach of the Crimson Tide. This past Saturday in Knoxville, he was honored on the field prior to the game, then held court with a group of reporters in the press box at halftime of the football game. He opened the impromptu gathering by asking for questions, then when a reporter queried him about his feelings on having the honor bestowed upon him, he spent the rest of the half talking non-stop about all the good things that had happened to him in his association with Tennessee. He mentioned the names of several teammates, including Charlie Rader from Greeneville, with whom he played in 1953. With the second half of the football game rapidly

Vols Starts on Page B-1 Vols 302-40 over the final 18 1/2 minutes. More than one Tennessee player used the word “panic” while discussing the Vols’ performance. “When the game got close to the end, people stopped playing, I guess,” junior wide receiver Justin Hunter said. “I saw it in a few people. I think there were eight minutes left and they were up two touchdowns. People just stopped.” The collapses have been all too common. SEC opponents outscored Tennessee 13942 after halftime last season. LSU, Alabama, South Carolina and Arkansas outscored Tennessee in the second half by a combined margin of 87-0. Tennessee has lost all 14 games it hasn’t led at halftime since Derek Dooley took over the program in 2010. The Vols could use their

But the hurt he felt when he left UT squeezed most of the orange blood out of his veins. But there was still some orange left in Majors. And you could tell Saturday after his number was retired that he was an extremely proud man. The sellout crowd for the Florida game was loud and receptive when Majors was introduced.

lack of experience and depth as an explanation last season. One year later, that excuse doesn’t really work. “As things get going bad, we can’t get in panic mode and start looking confused and stuff like that,” junior safety Byron Moore said. “When adversity hits, we’ve got to keep our composure and keep our mental focus.” Dooley believes the momentum of the Florida game shifted so swiftly that his players never recovered. Florida trailed 20-13 late in the third quarter before scoring three touchdowns in a span of 8 1/2 minutes. Even though almost 10 minutes remained in the game when Florida extended its lead to 3420, Tennessee wouldn’t threaten again. “It was a moment there where too many people were not listening to the voice of reason,” Dooley said. “Like I told the team, down 14 with 9:55 to go against anybody in the country, we should have

confidence that we can come back and win.” That confidence generally starts with the quarterback. Tyler Bray’s teammates say the junior quarterback has matured and developed into a better leader, but he didn’t react well Saturday when Tennessee fell behind. He threw seven straight incompletions to end the game. “The quarterback’s role is always to be a leader,” Bray said. “I’m working on it. I’ve got to get better and hopefully just move forward.” Dooley said Bray must do a better job of avoiding frustration when things aren’t going his way. “When he gets frustrated and things that are out of his control start bothering him, he doesn’t perform as well,” Dooley said. “He knows that. He’ll grow from it and learn from it. Nobody wants to play well more than Tyler, and sometimes he probably wants to play well too hard.”

PRE-GAME PRAYER TO END? University of Tennessee officials say prayer before football games at Neyland Stadium does not violate the U.S. Constitution. According to The Knoxville News Sentinel ( ), the university is preparing a formal response to a letter from the Freedom From Religion Foundation. University spokeswoman Margie Nichols said Tuesday the administration believes there is no reason to halt the tradition of a pre-kickoff invocation. The complaint letter from the Madison, Wis., atheist group arrived last week. An invocation was offered Saturday night before UT’s game against Florida. The letter from the group points that UTChattanooga decided last week to stop its use of pregame prayer. Chattanooga officials decided to observe a moment of silence instead of having a spoken prayer before its home football games.

NASCAR Reinstates AJ Allmendinger


CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — The first phase of his comeback complete, an optimistic AJ Allmendinger is ready to get on with his life. He’s hopeful that includes another job in racing. Allmendinger on Tuesday was reinstated by NASCAR,

which said he successfully completed its rehabilitation program after testing positive for a banned substance. The process took a little over two months, and Allmendinger said he learned a lot about himself while participating in the “Road to Recovery” program.

Tusculum answered the call in the second, closing with a 12-3 stretch to pull away. The third set was the most exciting of the night as their were 11 lead changes and 20 ties before Carson-Newman captured a 29-27 victory. Tusculum jumped out to a 15-8 lead in the fourth, but the Lady Eagles rallied to tie it at 18-18. It was all Lady Pioneers after that, though. Megan Hasse recorded 14 kills, 13 digs and three blocks to pace the Tusculum attack, while Danae Stauffer added 14 kills. Hannah Berling contributed 19 assists and 11 digs.

Tusculum not only seized the momentum, but got the sizable crowd into a frenzy as well, and Carson-Newman fell apart after that. The Lady Pioneers scored their final two points of the night off CN errors. “Carson-Newman played amazing all night so you have to give them a lot of credit,” Underwood said. “I don’t know if we noticed the crowd as much, but we really started to play with a lot of momentum toward the end.” The two teams alter-

Look at the pictures below. Then write three facts and three opinions about each photo.

When companies want you to see something, they advertise their products. Their ads are carefully crafted to make you want to buy what is being advertised.

Look at the bike ad at right. Some things an advertiser claims to be true are facts and some are opinions. Facts are statements that can be proven true or false. Such as: The bike has three gears. The bike is available in red or blue. The price of the bike is $99.

The 2012 Cruise Star is more fun to ride than other bikes. That’s because it has an easy shift for 3 speeds, a softer saddle and cushion-grip rubber handgrips. And you get it all for just $99. Available in red or blue, the Cruise Star will make you the coolest kid on the block.


Opinions, on the other hand, are true for some people, but may not be true for others. For example: This bike is the best. This bike is more fun to ride. This bike will make you popular. Look at these two ads. With a GREEN crayon, circle the FACTS. With a RED crayon, circle the OPINIONS.

Dairy Workshop Set For Cow, Goat, Sheep Producers SPRING HILL — On-farm milk processing is appealing to many dairy farmers as a new source of potential profits. On Oct. 31, University of Tennessee Extension will present a four-hour workshop designed to help producers who are considering this type of business venture. The workshop, “Taking a Look at Value-Added Dairy Opportunities,” will help dairy farmers learn about calculating milk production costs and assessing the costs and opportunities associated with onfarm milk processing. The workshop is designed for cow, goat and sheep producers. Good records are essential to knowing costs of production, said John Campbell, area farm management specialist with UT Extension. Campbell is among the experts who will speak at the workshop. “Dairy farmers who know their costs and understand their financial position are better able to evaluate value-added opportunities,” he said. Hal Pepper, Eric Goan and Dr. Peter Krawczel from UT Extension will also conduct sessions at the workshop. The sessions will focus on management considerations related to hygiene, health and productivity, the impact of adding an on-farm processing enterprise on a dairy farmer’s financial statements, prospects for valueadded dairy products and costs associated with onfarm processing of milk into products like fluid milk, yogurt and cheese and plant layout and equipment. “Taking a Look at Value-Added Dairy Opportunities” will be held at the UT Middle Tennessee AgResearch and Education Center in Spring Hill on Oct. 31 with a pre-registration deadline of Oct. 25. There is no registration fee for the workshop; however, pre-registration is required as space is limited and a meal is included. Pre-registration information is available on the center’s website at To pre-register, contact Richard Groce at the Maury County Extension office by phone at 931-375-5301 or e-mail The workshop will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. CDT.

The workshop is designed for cow, goat and sheep producers.

A SECOND PROGRAM The “Taking a Look at Value-Added Dairy Opportunities” workshop is distinct from other meetings being planned by UT Extension and the UT Department of Animal Science regarding a new educational program to assist the state’s dairy farmers in their efforts to improve overall milk quality and animal health by reducing the prevalence of mastitis and decrease somatic cell counts. That program will address how to control environmental and contagious mastitis, detect problematic cows and treat infected cows once identified. The specific dates and locations of these meetings are: Oct. 22, at the Western Sizzlin in Athens; Oct. 24 at the Washington County Farm Bureau Building in Jonesborough; Oct. 25, at the Rutherford County Extension Complex in Murfreesboro; and Oct. 26, at the Henry County Fairgrounds Enoch Building in Paris. Each meeting will begin at 10 a.m. and end at 2 p.m. local time. Lunch will be provided. There is a $15 charge for attendance if pre-registered by Oct. 19. An additional $5 fee will be added for late registration. This and other UT Extension programs are open to all interested persons. Questions can be addressed to Dr. Peter Krawczel at 865-974-8941 or

Sales Closing Date For Multi-Peril USDA Crop Insurance Is Sept. 30 The United States Department of Agriculture’s (USDA) Risk Management Agency Jackson Regional Office reminds Tennessee producers who wish to buy Multi-Peril Crop Insurance for the 2013 crop year of the following final sales closing dates: • Barley — Sept. 30; • Oats — Sept. 30, and • Wheat — Sept. 30. Insured growers may also use this opportunity to make important changes to their coverage. Current policyholders and uninsured growers who wish to buy a policy must make all decisions on crop insurance coverage by the sales closing date for that crop. Decisions include which crops to insure and which coverage level to choose. Interested producers should contact a local crop insurance agent to learn additional program details. If the traditional Multi-Peril Crop Insurance program is not available in a particular county, producers should ask an agent if they would be eligible for coverage through a written agreement. A list of crop insurance agents is available at all USDA Ser vice Centers throughout the United States or on the RM A website at http: // / agents

Fewer Modern Farmers Rely On Almanacs For Insights BOSTON (AP) — Scott Freitas’ grandmother always followed the farmer’s almanac, but the fourth-generation farmer never does. Selling corn and apples at a recent farmer’s market in Boston, Freitas said the almanacs are more for fun than real-life farm use, and he relies on experience instead. “I do what our family’s been doing,” he said. Many farmers like Freitas say farmer’s almanacs, known for their catchy weather predictions, are no longer a go-to source in the Information Age. Some, however, still turn to the centuries-old booklets for long-range weather predictions. The 2013 edition of the Old Farmer’s Almanac hit shelves Wednesday. “In the early days, I suppose it used to be the main source of information, maybe the only source of information,” said Annie Cheatham, executive director of the New England Farmers Union, which gets a copy of the Old Farmer’s Almanac every year. “Of course, that’s changed a lot with satellite information.”


The cover of the 2013 edition of the Old Farmer’s Almanac in Boston. The 221-year-old Old Farmer’s Almanac based in New Hampshire — not to be confused with the slightly younger Farmer’s Almanac based in Maine — predicts a cold winter in the East, South and Southwest and a mild winter in the Midwest, heartland and West Coast. Summer, however, will be warmer on the West and East Coasts and cooler throughout the rest of the country. The Old Farmer’s Almanac, which boasts a 3.1 million print circulation plus digital versions, is

used by all audiences, not just farmers, editor Janice Stillman said. Gardeners, ranchers, roofers, astronomy clubs and brides-to-be turn to the book for weather, astronomy and recipe information, she said. “A lot of the folks who buy the Old Farmer’s Almanac grew up on farms or their parents or grandparents did,” said Stillman, who gardens but doesn’t farm, and checks the weather predictions for her own travel plans. “Whether they read it in the bathroom or in the kitchen, it’s something they always want to have on hand.” Richard Bonanno, pres-

ident of the Massachusetts Farm Bureau Board of Directors, says some farmers likely use almanacs as a general guideline for their long-range weather predictions, like whether winter will be colder or warmer than normal. “I hear farmers talk about it all the time: ’Did you hear the almanac said it’s going to be a cold winter?”’ Bonanno said. “Within the agricultural community, there’s still discussion about it.” But Bonanno, who is in his 50s, said younger farmers are less likely to turn to the almanac’s acumen.

Little-Boy Flasher Tries To Cover Up His Exposure HI & LOIS



DEAR ABBY: My daughter “Anissa” is 3 and has an older cousin, “Billy,” on my fiance’s side who is 5. Billy has been caught on several occasions showing his “manhood” to little girls, and we recently found out he took Anissa into a popup tent and showed her as well. This was not on my watch, because I don’t feel comfortable leaving them alone together. After I learned about the incident, I was told that Billy had done this with another cousin and told her it was a “secret” and not to tell. Abby, as far as I know, Billy was spoken to at great length and reprimanded after the first few occurrences, but he continues to do this, it seems, at every opportunity he gets. Is this normal behavior for boys? I think the parents are burying their heads in the sand. They get defensive when the subject is brought up. Personally, all I can do is keep Anissa within arm’s reach when Billy is around. What do you think? — NOT ON MY WATCH DEAR NOT: I think that’s intelligent. Although children are naturally curious when they learn there’s a dif-



ference between boys and girls (hence the genesis of playing “doctor”), Billy appears to be overly preoccupied. Because he is telling the girls to keep what he’s doing a secret, he knows he is doing something wrong. Repeated naughty actions can be corrected only if there are consequences for them, and it appears a lengthy talking-to and a reprimand haven’t gotten through to the child. DEAR ABBY: I need your assistance resolving an awkward situation. I have noticed other women experiencing “wardrobe malfunctions.” In each instance, they were otherwise tastefully dressed but seemingly unaware of the sheerness of their clothing. For example, one was wearing white slacks through which the patterned fabric of her underwear could be seen clearly. Is there a polite way to alert them of the prob-

lem, or is it better to say nothing? Most of these women were strangers, but I couldn’t think of tactful wording even when it happened to a friend. — JUST TRYING TO HELP DEAR JUST TRYING: If it’s a friend, say, “Honey, I can see the pattern of your underwear through your slacks,” and it will probably be appreciated. However, if it’s a stranger, keep your comment to yourself because it probably won’t be.

ARIES (March 21 to April 19) Relations with others, especially partners and close friends, will be touchy today! People are explosive and ready to fight at the drop of a hat. Tread carefully! TAURUS (April 20 to May 20) This is an accident-prone day for your kids. It’s also an accident-prone day for sports, creative activities and anything connected with the entertainment world and the hospitality industry. Be careful! GEMINI (May 21 to June 20) Even though you are in an upbeat, easygoing mood, upsets at home (small appliances might break down or minor breakages could occur) are in the mix. Avoid arguing about shared possessions. CANCER (June 21 to July 22) This is a good day for business and commerce; however, issues at home or within your family are unpredictable. Minor accidents and family arguments might occur. LEO (July 23 to Aug. 22) You feel friendly and social today. Enjoy good times with others, but be aware that this is an accident-prone day (verbally or physically). Avoid arguments. VIRGO (Aug. 23 to Sept. 22) Be aware of your possessions and money today, because you might lose something or break it. The upside is that you might discover an opportunity to make a fast buck.

LIBRA (Sept. 23 to Oct. 22) Relations with others are potentially explosive today. Although you will enjoy times with friends and groups, you might argue with partners and close friends. (Be tolerant and patient.) SCORPIO (Oct. 23 to Nov. 21) Your energy is still very high today, which is why you might end up in an argument with someone at work or even a neighbor or sibling. Quit competing. (You don’t have to always be right.) SAGITTARIUS (Nov. 22 to Dec. 21) Your dealings with others in group situations will be potentially explosive today. You might attract someone who is brash, loud and overpowering. (Run away!) CAPRICORN (Dec. 22 to Jan. 19) Avoid arguments with parents, bosses, teachers and VIPs. Suddenly, they could erupt, and they will not be helpful. Instead, accept help from someone who is ready to assist you. AQUARIUS (Jan. 20 to Feb. 18) This is an accident-prone day for your sign, so be careful. Fortunately, partners and close friends are supportive and loving. PISCES (Feb. 19 to March 20) Keep an eye on your money today, because you might find money or you might lose money. Guard your possessions against loss or theft. Fortunately, things at work flow smoothly. Note: This column is published only as an entertainment feature for interested readers.

‘An Experience’

This ‘N’ That Coming Up


oday’s Kathy’s Corner is going to be about some things coming up that I want you to know about, and it runs the gamut — from musicals to business. I think many of you will want to know about these things and take advantage of the fact they are happening right here in our town! Titanic The Musical Today’s ACCENT story is about the Titanic Attraction in Pigeon Forge. When you take time to read about it, you will learn just how nice I thought it was, and I hope you put it on your list of things to do sometime soon. To go along with that, coming up on Thursday, Oct. 4, the Niswonger Performing Arts Center will be featuring Titanic the Musical, presented by Windwood Theatricals. This is so appropriate because 2012 has been designated as the Year of the Titanic to give folks time to pause and reflect on the 100th anniversary of the sinking of this famed ocean liner. Titanic the Musical has won five Tony Awards, including Best Music. This show recounts the dreams, hopes and aspirations of those aboard the ship. The show will allow you to learn more about the story of the launching of the ship, the collision with the iceberg in the North Atlantic, and the vessel’s sinking into the ocean within a few hours. One of the things I am most excited about is the fact that the actress who portrays Jaynee, a First Class Maid, and others from the attraction in Pigeon Forge will be on hand to distribute replicas of Titanic boarding passes to those attending the show here. Beginning at 7:00 p.m., a couple of people representing the attraction will present a brief monologue about a specific event surrounding the ship. According to a press release about the musical describing parts of it: “Unaware of the fate that awaits them, the Third Class immigrants PLEASE SEE KATHY’S CORNER | 2

Between the time you enter the lobby of The Titanic here, purchase your ticket and get your replica of an original boarding pass, and the time you complete your tour with a visit to the Gift Shop, you have seen and heard things that make you laugh, and other things that bring tears to your eyes. But, more than anything else, you will find yourself proud that John Joslyn and his wife Mary Kellogg have had the foresight to give us all a glimpse into history through this “attraction� that becomes so much more than that!

THE GREENEVILLE SUN ACCENT Wednesday, September 19, 2012

Experience Starts on Page 1 I was enchanted (and that is not a word I often use) by the comprehensive knowledge of all of the employees whom I encountered along the way in my tour. (Note: I did not have any kind of special tour. I joined a regular tour with a friend of mine on the morning of Aug. 30 just as others did that day.) Mary explained to me that anyone working at the attraction has to undergo seven days of training and pass a test before he or she is allowed on the f loor to work with the guests. It is evident that this is not simply a job with Mary. She and her husband, John Joslyn, have created the Titanic Attraction “to build a permanent monument to the 2,208 men, women, and children who sailed on the Titanic.” In a very quiet but enthusiastic way, Mary talked about the importance of sharing the memories and stories of persons aboard the original Titanic, which sank in the North Atlantic on its maiden voyage in 1912 after striking an iceberg. “There are so many wonderful stories,” says Mary, “and thank goodness for the persons who kept their memories down on paper, photos, and more, because we can pass that history along to others.” Taking the tour of the attraction is intriguing, and talking to the staff and hearing more is really something... I know I said it before, but it is an experience! Plan to spend at least two to three hours. You can go at your own pace, and although there are guides to assist you, if you choose not to talk to anyone, there is a very easy audio phone tour. Making the tour personal is what happens when you receive a boarding pass. I was Leah Aks, a 19-year-old Third Class passenger from London, England. Here is Leah’s story: “My son and I were in our private cabin in Third Class, when I heard a scraping noise. Most of the sounds coming from the engine room are magnified and resonate in the lower Third-Class decks; however, this was different. I bundled my little boy in a blanket and dashed to the boat deck. “I was standing next to 18-year-old Madeleine Astor, wife of the richest man on the ship. Next thing I knew, someone grabbed my baby and tossed him away from me. I didn’t know if he was thrown overboard or into one of the lifeboats. I fought to find him, but a crewman restrained me. Maybe he thought I was trying to rush the boat. My boy was gone, yet I held fast to the slim hope it wouldn’t be forever.” As it turned out, I learned that Leah and her son survived the trip — her son had been thrown into a lifeboat. In the memorial room at the Pigeon Forge attraction, you are able to find out the

SPECTACULAR DISPLAY The Pigeon Forge attraction is a 30,000-square-foot ship-shaped structure situated on 5.69 acres of land that overlook the Gateway to the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. It holds 20 galleries with hundreds of artifacts on two decks. There are many beautiful artifacts on display, and one might wonder if they were taken from the wreck site. Mary says No. She explained that “the many priceless Titanic artifacts and relics that are on display were either carried off the ship by Titanic passengers and crew or were recovered from the sea during the rescue effort. Many of these pieces are on display for the first time.” On the tour, visitors get to feel an iceberg, and put their hands in the 28degree water that the survivors were in for several hours. There are several other things for a tourist to discover in the discovery area. MARY KELLOGG Mary is quite an interesting individual herself and has had an extensive background in entertainment, marketing, and production. She served for 20 years as Executive Vice President Television for The Walt Disney Company. One of her accomplishments of which she seemed most proud in our interview was bringing to television the highly successful “Live with Regis and (Kathy Lee) Kelly” show. The show was on for 20 years, and she served as the executive-in-charge. Mary also helped create and develop “Who Wants To Be A Millionaire? ” and served as the executive-in-charge of the show both on TV and as an attraction at Walt Disney World and Disneyland.

She also oversaw several other shows. In fact, during her Disney career, Mary oversaw more than 40 television shows. A news release about Mary says, “As Cedar Bay Entertainment’s Executive Vice President, Operations, Ms. Kellogg is in charge of developing and coordinating marketing, advertising, sales, public relations and merchandising strategies for the company’s Titanic Branson operation and for the Pigeon Forge Titanic attraction. In addition, she creates year-round local and national media events for the museum attractions.” “Based on exceptional marketing success,” Titanic Branson was selected for the 2009 Best of Branson Award in the Amusement Theme Park category by the U.S. Commerce Association. But Mary is quick to tell you that she is very proud of her husband, and together they create quite a team. JOHN JOSLYN John Joslyn, president and CEO of Cedar Bay Entertainment, has been a major force in innovative exhibitions, attractions, television programming, and marketing for more than three decades. He is known around the world as an adventurer, explorer and pioneer-producer. John Joslyn’s association with the Titanic dates back to the mid-1980s, when he co-founded Titanic Ventures Limited Partnership, and served as General Manager. According to Mary and a news release about his life, John mounted the 1987 Titanic Expedition in collaboration with the distinguished French Institute for Research and Exploration of the Sea. He also acted as the co-leader of the expedition. “This historic expedition was the first to recover and restore artifacts from the ocean f loor. In order to recover these artifacts, Joslyn and his

team of scientific and salvage experts successfully completed 32 dives to the Titanic’s final resting place in the North Atlantic to 12,500 feet in the ‘Nauttile,’ the French institute’s deepdiving submersible. “This is the greatest number of deepsea dives ever completed for any televised project. The resulting television special produced by Joslyn, ‘Return to the Titanic...LIVE,’ shown in 27 countries worldwide in 1987, remains one of the highest-rated syndicated specials of all time (seen by 22 million households in the U. S. alone).” This dynamic duo of Mary and John continue to brainstorm, explore and create daily, and I suspect we will be hearing soon about some more adventures of the talented couple. In the gift shop are many different books and magazines about The Titanic, and, knowing how much ACCENT readers love interesting facts, I couldn’t help but offer you a few facts. However, I encourage you to come to Pigeon Forge and experience this beautiful attraction for yourself. They do have special displays and programs on certain holidays such as Thanksgiving, Christmas, and more. Check out their Website at If you would like to meet Mary and some of the other fine folks from The Titanic Attraction from Pigeon Forge, make plans to see Titanic The Musical at the Niswonger Performing Arts Center on Oct. 4. Please see today’s Kathy’s Corner for more details.

Drinking Water Is Good For You Q:

Does drinking more water really help you lose weight? A: In some small studies, drinking 16 ounces of water before meals has helped decrease calorie consumption and improved weight loss among middle aged and older adults participating in weight loss programs. It also seemed to help them maintain their weight loss after the programs ended. We need more studies to know if this really works. If it does, it’s not clear whether it would be due to reducing hunger or if it has direct effects

HEALTH TALK — on metabolism. You may hear claims that drinking more water will rev up your metabolism so you lose weight by burning more calories. However, I can find only a couple controlled studies that tested this. These studies show a small increase in calorie burning after cold water was consumed. This involved a bit over 16 ounces of cold water in adults, and proportionately smaller, but still substantial, amounts in overweight children. However, in one study, the

Even if repeated several times a day, researchers estimate that it would result in weight loss of a couple pounds over a whole year. Other claims that drinking water supports weight loss through washing out fat are not founded on research at all. It seems more likely that if drinking water works, it does so by helping you eat less. Other studies suggest that consuming more waterrich foods may be even more effective at helping reduce calorie consumption. For example, in a study in which

Some of the folks working on bringing this program to Greeneville have actually been to one of Ruby’s “Boot Camps,” and they said it is quite an event — both physically and emotionally. At her highest weight of 718 pounds, Ruby began a quest to lose weight to improve her health and feel better. She now weighs 318 pounds and continues her journey. She will share with us her goals, struggles, lifestyle changes, exercise tips and so much more. Ruby has shared her journey on several television programs such as Oprah, Rachael Ray, Regis & Kelly, Today, Dr. Phil, Dr. Oz, Bonnie Hunt and many more. Thanks to the Health Council and its sponsors, Ruby will be presenting a free program next Wednesday, Sept. 26, from 7:00 – 8:30 p.m. at Crescent Auditorium (615 W. Main St.).

Can lifestyle change it? A: C-reactive protein (CRP) is a protein that rises with inflammation. By measuring CRP levels, the CRP test is a measure of inflammation in the body. The standard CRP test is used to diagnose and monitor treatment of short-term inflammation (such as a bacterial infection) or major inflammation of disorders like inflammatory bowel disease or an

autoimmune disease. The test called hs-CRP (high-sensitivity CRP) can measure mildly elevated levels of this protein that mark chronic, low-grade inflammation linked with increased risk of heart disease, stroke and diabetes. Studies suggest that chronic low-grade inflammation may also promote cancer development by damaging our genes, increasing cell turnover and increasing development of blood vessels so cancer can spread. Levels of hs-CRP do change in response to lifestyle choices like regular exercise and not smoking. A predominantly plantbased “Mediterranean style” diet with plenty

organization. I could not be more proud that we are getting ready to host a summit right here in our town on Thursday, Sept. 27. My greatest fear? We will have people from throughout the state come to the FREE 8-hour event, but not many of our very own local merchants will attend because they won’t know about it. If you are a business person and are interested in strategies to generate economic growth in our community, PLEASE PLAN TO ATTEND! The summit (and there are two others like it in other areas of the state) is free, but due to seating and logistics, the coordinators need to know how many will attend. We are so fortunate here because Main Street: Greeneville is partnering with NPAC and others and offering a great space and opportunity for our businesses. There will be interactive presentations, educational sessions, networking opportunities, and access to resources across the state. The purpose is to encourage businesses and communities to refocus and improve their marketing strategies, and

of vegetables, fruits and beans also seems to decrease hs-CRP levels. Weight control seems to be another important way to prevent or reduce inflammation. As individuals become overweight, fat cells enlarge and increase production of proteins that promote inflammation throughout the body. Overweight people who lose weight reduce CRP levels. Tests of hs-CRP are skewed by certain medications, temporary illness or chronic inflammation like arthritis, so it’s important to discuss results with your physician.

Mediterranean White-BeanAnd-Spinach Soup


his wonderful soup combines a host of Mediterranean flavors including cannellini beans, also known as white kidney beans, commonly used in dishes from Tuscany. The balance of beans, vegetables and pasta make this soup warm and satisfying without being over filling. The popular orange carrot originates from the ancient wild carrot. The first cultivated carrot may have been in Afghanistan around 800 CE. These early carrots included purple and yellow varieties (some of which are appearing in farmers’ markets today). Centuries later the cultivated carrot found its way to Europe where the orange carrot we enjoy today was bred. Carrots are packed with a fat-soluble antioxidant, beta-carotene which you’ll absorb better thanks to the olive oil in this recipe. The rich red tomatoes and bright green spinach provide more color, flavor and the vitamins A and C. Together with the Italian spices and Parmesan cheese, these vegetables complete the Mediterranean quality of the dish. For a quick midday or evening meal you could serve the soup with a turkey breast sandwich on 100 percent multigrain bread. If you have extra, this

Mediterranean White-Bean-and-Spinach Soup soup makes great leftovers.

MEDITERRANEAN WHITE-BEAN-ANDSPINACH SOUP 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil 3 cloves garlic, minced 1 medium carrot, halved and thinly sliced 1/2 medium onion, diced finely 4 1/2 cups low-sodium vegetable stock One 14-oz. can no-salt added diced tomatoes (fresh may be substituted) One 14-oz. can no-salt added cannellini beans (any white bean may be substituted) 1/2 teaspoon rosemary 1 teaspoon dried Italian seasoning Dash freshly ground pepper Dash red pepper flakes (optional) 4 oz. small wholewheat pasta shells

4 cups baby spinach leaves 4 teaspoon shredded Parmesan cheese In a large skillet heat oil over medium-high heat. Sauté garlic, carrots, and onions until the carrots are soft, about 5 minutes. Add stock, tomatoes, beans, pasta shells, rosemary, Italian seasoning, and pepper to skillet. Bring to boil. Add shells and cook 14 minutes. If soup is too thick simply add a bit more stock. Stir in spinach and continue cooking until wilted. Serve in soup bowls and sprinkle parmesan on top. Makes 6 servings.

Houseplants: From Outside, In


f you’re like me, you put your houseplants outside for the summer, because they thrive in the natural air and humidity, but during their vacation from human stuff, they pick up a few hitch-hikers that we must rid ourselves of BEFORE bringing them indoors. There’s several ways to do this and we may need to use all of them! Repotting: This is more than it sounds. The roots have probably become restricted in the space they’re allotted, and removing the root ball may be a chore. Cut it loose if you have to, but get it out. A sharp knife will work wonders. If the plant is healthy I usually use the garden hose and wash off all old soil mix and insects that I can see, leaving the roots bare. Cut off any damaged/dead/ diseased roots. If you want to put it back in the same pot, cut off 1/3 of the total root mass (root pruning=controlled growth, forces plants to grow new roots, leading to limited but healthy new growth) and make sure the plant is as free of insects as possible. The container MUST have drainage … no, ifs, ands or buts. Even if it HAS to be in a decorative, non-draining container, plant the actual live thing in a DRAINING container and sit it into the decorative one. Take the removable container out for watering. I like to use the tub or sink, allowing the plant to sit there all day and drain. The water goes in and MUST be able to go out …. not into a tray that will hold the water in the roots either. If the plant is standing in water an hour after watering, empty it. If it’s too big to pick up, suck it up with a turkey baster or soak it up with a sponge. NO houseplant wants to stand in water. Water only if your finger is dry at the tip, after pushing it sev-

DALLAS (AP) — Research leading up to an exhibit focusing on artist Diego Velazquez has revealed a portrait by the Spanish master at Dallas’ Meadows Museum is likely his first of Spain’s King Philip IV, his lifelong patron. An exhibit titled “Diego Velazquez: The Early Court Portraits” opened Sunday at the museum at Southern Methodist University. The exhibit is part of a partnership between the Meadows and Madrid’s famed Museo del Prado

and will run through Jan. 13. X-rays of the Meadow’s portrait found brush strokes indicating he was still working out how to paint the king as he completed the piece.

Velazquez became the king’s court painter in 1623, when he was only 24. It was a job he would hold until his death in 1660 at the age of 61.


Repot in FRESH, TOP QUALITY potting mix, mist well and set the plant aside to acclimate to the changes. Move it inside before the day is done. It’s a good time to trim away any dead or damaged foliage as well. If you want to go up in size of container, only go up 2 inches more than the plant already lives in, otherwise it will spend all its limited winter energy trying to fill up the new container with roots, and the plant itself will suffer. Too much unnecessary energy spent at a critical time. This is NOT the time to FERTILIZE, or use a fertilized soil mix. These plants need a rest … kind of like hibernation. You’ll water only enough to keep them alive (very little!), keep them in a cool room with sufficient light to sustain life, and watch for insects, especially aphids, white flies, mealy bugs, scale. Houseplants are a lot like wild animals; they tolerate our humanity and lack of understanding …. until they DON’T. Outsmart ‘em this year!!

Martha Talks About Organizing Magazines, Arranging Flowers KEEPING MAGAZINE COLLECTIONS TIDY My husband keeps a lot of magazines in his home office. Do you have any suggestions for how to organize them? A: With the help of some basic tools, you can turn your husband’s collection into a working reference library. For starters, you’ll want to invest in some magazine files and three-ring binders. Files are great for storing magazines encyclopedia-style so that they can be referenced easily. You can group the issues by date, topic, season or however else he wishes to categorize them. Many files have a label holder, so they can be easily marked. You can also place them on shelves or desktops so that the label side is forward, or turned around so the spines of the magazines are showing. If he’s holding onto a magazine for only one article, it makes sense to remove it, store it in a binder and recycle the rest of the magazine. Linen-covered or patterned binders come in a variety of styles that will complement his office’s color scheme and

CREATE PROFESSIONALQUALITY FLOWER ARRANGEMENTS Q: I love professional floral arrangements with large green leaves on the inside of a glass vase. How can I do this myself? A: Achieving this look is surprisingly simple. Start with a glass vase; choose whichever shape you like, but a round one would be easiest to work with since you won’t need to fit the leaves into any corners. You can use a small or large vase; just make sure you have enough leaves to cover the insider of the vase completely. Long

Hocus Pocus—Raisins!

raisin starts life as a grape and a prune as a plum. What happens to these juicy fruits? In the following experiment, you can see for yourself. You need: • A bunch of white seedless grapes • 2 drying trays (make your own by spreading cheesecloth or wire mesh over kitchen cooling racks) • A pot of boiling water • A strainer • 4 empty small juice cans (you can also use clean river stones of the same size) What to do: Wash the grapes in cold water and remove those that are bruised. Pull out the stems and place the cleaned grapes in a strainer. Dip them into

leaves are the best choice because they are less prone to rotting in water.

Most florists will have them in stock. You’ll also need a florist’s knife, good scissors or a similar tool. New York City florist Banchet Jaigla shared her DIY approach: First, cut off the end of the leaf’s stem. Using a florist’s knife, trim the edges of the foliage and smooth them out. Shave the seam that runs down the center of the leaf so it’s flat. Wrap the leaf around your hand to form a tube, with the shaved seam facing in, and insert it into the vase. If you need more coverage, repeat the steps above with additional leaves. Once submerged in water, the leaves should last a week or more, and they won’t need any special treatment. Just change the water as often as needed for the arrangement to thrive. Any bouquet will look lovely surrounded by these luxuriant green leaves.

Whimsical Knits At Pringle Of Scotland’s Show LONDON (AP) — For the designers at Scottish brand Pringle, the label’s archive of twinsets and knits is a gift that just keeps on giving. The heritage label, best known for its argyle knitwear, showcased Monday a new spring collection that updated grandmotherly ‘50s sweaters with clear plastic embellishment and modern color combinations. “These are based on the 1950s ‘sweater girls’ but updated with geometric beading, which gives an element of unexpected and whimsical Britishness,” said Jean Fang, the company’s chief executive. The embellished crew neck knits in vibrant jade, cobalt and canary yellow are set to be bestsellers. They complement a collection of more traditional knitted dresses

Applesauce Good Enough To Be At The Dinner Table fangled all at once and every time I serve it with roasted chicken or grilled pork chops, the resounding opinion is that the applesauce was the best part of the meal. This recipe is easily halved or doubled. What you don’t eat warm, you can refrigerate and eat “leftover” for a week. It is the perfect recipe for all those leftover apples from your apple-picking adventures.



ach fall, I can’t help myself from buying apples by the bushel. I get so excited by the crisp air and the fresh-from-the-orchard fruit that I inevitably buy way too many.

THE AMERICAN TABLE So I end up baking pies and apple cakes. I even saute fresh sliced apples for breakfast the way my mother did when I was a child. But my hands-down favorite thing to make with my abundance? Homemade applesauce. I love to make homemade applesauce when I want to perk up a less-than-exciting meal and impress my dining companions with something unexpectedly delicious. I remember my first taste of what has become my go-to recipe. My mother was making Julia Child’s French apple tart. Child’s recipe has a bed of wellseasoned applesauce on the bottom and a fan of apricot-jam glazed apples on the top. When I tasted Child’s brandy-laced applesauce, I quickly decided that was the best part of the tart. Since then, I have used a variation of that applesauce as my own. I love the process of peeling the apples, cutting them



In this image taken on August 27, 2012, a recipe for Spiked Side-Dish Applesauce is shown in Concord, N.H. into rough chunks and placing them in my heavy enameled Dutch oven. I use whatever apples I have on hand. Sometimes they are all the same variety and sometimes they are a mix. I toss the apples with lemon juice, a little sugar and cinnamon to season them and keep them from turning brown. I add lemon zest for zing and salt for balance. Then I put the lid on the pot and wait patiently while the apples cook and give up their natural juices. In just 15 to 20 minutes, they are ready to mash and give way easily with a fork or a spoon.

You could serve the applesauce at this stage, but the next step is what makes it exceptional! Once the apples are cooked down to a rough mash, I add just enough sweet butter to round out the tart acidity of the apples. Then I add a splash of cognac or apple brandy to add a depth of flavor. The mixture is then brought to a boil and simmered for 5 minutes until all of the raw alcohol is cooked away, leaving just the fabulous flavor. And that is the secret to the best homemade applesauce you’ve ever tasted! It’s old-fashioned and new-

I like to cook the apples until they are tender, but still irregular in shape and a bit chunky. And since this is a side dish and not a dessert, I don’t use very much sugar, just enough to pull out the flavor of the apples. Start to finish: 45 minutes Servings: 8 4 lbs. tart apples, such as Granny Smith or Pink Lady (a combination is great) 1/2 to 1 cup sugar (depending on desired sweetness) 1/4 teaspoon salt Zest and juice of 1 lemon (about 1/4 cup juice) 1 teaspoon cinnamon 1/4 cup (1/2 stick) unsalted butter 1/4 cup apple brandy (such as Calvados) Peel, core and quarter the apples, then place them in a heavy-bottomed Dutch oven or large saucepan. Sprinkle 1/2 cup of the sugar,

the salt, lemon zest and juice, and the cinnamon over the apples. Toss gently. Cover the pot and set over low-medium heat. Every 5 minutes, stir the apples until they begin to release their juices and start to break down, about 15 to 20 minutes. If the apples seem too dry, add water a couple tablespoons at a time, and continue to cook until tender. Taste. If the apples are too tart for you, add more sugar. Add the butter and apple brandy. Stir vigorously until the apples are the texture of a rough applesauce. You want it to be chunky. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer for 5 minutes. Taste again. Adjust seasonings if necessary, and serve hot, room temperature or cold.

Finally, A Zucchini Recipe To Get Excited About! of baby greens and roasted vegetables and it was fantastic. If you don’t want to crank up the grill, you also could pop the zucchini under the broiler for a few minutes. Coat the zucchini lightly with cooking spray or olive oil, then set on the oven’s lowest rack. Broil just until very lightly browned and starting to get tender.



he trouble with late summer’s bounty of zucchini isn’t in the volume of the vegetable itself. Rather, it is in the

COOKING ON DEADLINE — lack of creative recipes for using it. Because frankly what the world most certainly does not need are more recipes for zucchini muffins and breads and casseroles. The website, for example, lists some 244 recipes for zucchini bread alone. In fact, there are so many that users of the site have stopped even trying to come up with creative names for the recipes, instead resorting to Roman numerals. A slice of Zucchini Bread VI, anyone? So it has been a long time since I have been impressed by a zucchini recipe. Using a vegetable peeler to turn it into ribbons for a salad is benign. Shredding it into strands for “pasta” is creative, if not particularly delicious. And I have no interest in yet another variant of stuffing and baking them, no matter how much bacon, sau-



In this image taken on August 27, 2012, Grilled Zucchini Hummus is shown in Concord, N.H. sage and cheese you jam in there. But recently I was impressed by, yes... a zucchini recipe. I no longer thought this was possible. A generous reader sympathetic to my ongoing battle to get my 8-yearold son to embrace more vegetables directed me to a recipe for zucchini hummus on blogger Kait Capone’s site, The recipe is precisely as it sounds — a hummus-like spread

made from ground zucchini. The name doesn’t do it justice, hence I tried it somewhat reluctantly. As is my wont, I modified the recipe the first time I tried it. The recipe calls for pureeing raw zucchini, which held little appeal for me. So I grilled it first. I also upped the garlic, and added smoked paprika and salt. The result was insanely good. A few more modifications in round two and I had

something I’d long thought impossible — an amazingly delicious, creative and even healthy way to use zucchini. What to do with it? It certainly would make a fine sandwich spread or dip for vegetables, crackers or hunks of pita bread. I dumped some over a salad

I prefer roasted (also called toasted) tahini, but it can be hard to fine. The recipe is still great with regular tahini. Start to finish: 20 minutes Makes about 2 1/2 cups 1 large zucchini (about 1 pound) 1/4 cup roasted tahini (sesame seed butter) 3 to 4 cloves garlic 1 tablespoon lemon juice 1 teaspoon cumin 1 teaspoon smoked paprika 1/2 teaspoon kosher salt Heat a grill to high. Use an oil-soaked paper towel held with tongs to lightly oil the grill grates. Trim the ends from the zucchini, then slice it in half

lengthwise. If the seeds are large and watery, use a melon baller or small spoon to scrape out and discard most of the seeds from the center of each half. It’s not critical to get them all. If the inside of the zucchini appears firm and the seeds small, you don’t need to scrape them out. Place the zucchini on the grill, cut side up, then reduce heat to low. Cook for 10 minutes, or until just lightly browned and starting to get tender. Set aside to cool. When the zucchini has cooled enough to handle, place it in a food processor. Add the tahini, garlic, lemon juice, cumin, smoked paprika and salt. Process for 1 minute, or until very smooth. The hummus can be served immediately, or chilled. The hummus will thicken slightly as it chills.

Eggs Are in a Pickle


ear Heloise: I love the flavor of PICKLED EGGS that are soaked in the juice from dill pickles. Is it possible to make them as if I were making dill pickles? — Judy, via email Yes, there are numerous recipes for pickling eggs, but they may not taste like the ones that you just plopped in the dill-pickle jar. For the dill-pickle flavor, try taking the leftover juice from your dill pickles, heating it and pouring it over hard-cooked eggs. After finishing a jar of pickles, I like to put sliced celery, carrots, cucumbers or hard-boiled eggs in the leftover juice and let it sit for a few days in the refrigerator. — Heloise THREE IN ONE Dear Readers: Here are some terrific cold-drink hints from readers: • Rick K. in Missouri: One of my most refreshing hints is to add pineapple juice to a glass of iced tea to taste. It’s a summer staple for quenching thirst. • Joan in Ohio: I poured a glass of iced tea and then


— realized I had no lemon or lemon juice. But I did have some lemon frozen treats in the freezer, so I put one in the iced tea. No need for sugar or ice cubes. • Carol M. in Missouri: When making or serving lemonade (or any other cold drink), freeze some in icecube trays. They can then be added to glasses of lemonade instead of ice cubes made of water, which will weaken your drink. In Texas, iced tea is a staple year-round, and because coffee and tea are such popular drinks, I compiled my Heloise’s Flavored Coffees and Teas pamphlet. To receive one, send $3 and a long, self-addressed, stamped (65 cents) envelope to: Heloise/Coffees, P.O. Box 795001, San Antonio, TX 78279-5001. To make coldwater iced tea, fill a pitcher with cold water, add eight to 10 tea bags, then cover. Let

stand at room temperature or place in a refrigerator for at least six hours. Remove the bags and serve. — Heloise SEAWORTHY SEAL Dear Readers: My husband and I love our Texas Gulf Coast getaway place, but it can be very humid! Moisture sneaks into all sorts of food packaging, even though we keep our home temperature-controlled and don’t often open windows. After opening new jars of dry products such as instant coffee, I place plastic sealing wrap over the opening, pressing it around the rim, then seal with the lid. — Heloise
