the off season, with the December 2009 figure a full 2.4 percent higher than for the same month in 2008. The number is also nearly double the numbers the county has experienced for December going back more than a decade to about 1997. Since then, the figure has mostly hovered around the 5 percent mark. It’s also the first time December

brought double digits unemployment here since 1992, when, interestingly enough, the number was also 10.7 percent.

Sevier County High School assistant principals Stephanie Huskey and Carolyn Whaley, left, and Debra Cline, director of curriculum and instruction, enjoy a lunch prepared by SCHS Culinary Arts students on Thursday in honor of School Board Appreciation Week.

Culinary Arts students treat school board, central staff By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — In honor of School Board Appreciation Week, Sevier County High School’s Culinary Arts students prepared a special lunch for Sevier County School Board members and Central Office staff on Thursday. Guests could choose from cheeseburgers, chicken salad sandwiches, an array of desserts and more as culi-

nary arts teacher Sissy Ivey and her class served the food in the Career and Technical Education Building. “This has turned into an annual event. It’s a good way to show appreciation, feeding people,” SCHS Principal Toby Ward said with a laugh. “It’s also a good way to show off our culinary arts program. They do a great job — they’re very professional.” See treat, Page A5

GATLINBURG — It started out as a leisure suitladen bash to celebrate the return of disco to the Smoky Mountains thanks to the opening of Dr. Disco’s new nightclub, but it ended with at least one person dead and a crowd of amateur detectives piecing together clues. That’s the premise for this year’s murder mystery dinner theater put on by the Anna Porter Public Library at 6 p.m. Feb. 12 and 13 at Mills Auditorium. Tickets are $40, for which attendees get the chance to have a full dinner, enjoy the fun of the christening of a new discotheque, be part of the investigation into the death and support the library. “As we get closer to it we’re getting pretty excited,” says Bill Wright, director of this year’s show. “It’s going to be a good show. I’ll put it this way: People will miss a fun evening if they don’t come to see it.” Wright describes the production as “a little bit different” than ones in years past, from a fairly minimalist set to some surprises with the murder itself. Additionally, the script for “The Last Dance of Dr. Disco” calls for a bit of coordinated dancing, something that hasn’t been part of previous years’ shows. “There is a tiny bit of choreography. We went into it with cautious optimism,” Wright jokes. While there are some changes, the best parts of the tradition of the show will remain, including the audience participation and the fun of watching See mystery, Page A5

BOMA OKs concessions agreement By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — The Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved an agreement allowing the city’s new youth baseball and softball organization Monday on use of its concession stand at City Park. The city agreed in 2008 to build and operate the concession building. However, the old youth baseball group, the Greater Sevierville Little

League, “is now a non-operational organization,� according to a memo issued to the board. Recreation department officials and City Attorney Ed Owens met with league officials and came up with a new agreement regulating use of the concession building, which is owned by the city. Parks and Recreation Director Bob Parker said the new agreement will be reviewed annually. “This gets us out of a long-term agreement,� he

said. “This one is year to year.� Also Monday, the board: n Approved second reading of amendments to the city’s off-street parking requirements n Approved application for a Community Development Block Grant n Approved a quit claim for a part of the old right-of-way for Middle Creek Road n jfarrell@themountainpress.com

While Knox County landed the No. 2 spot with an 8.1 percent rate, Sevier County fell somewhere in the middle of the pack, in neither the top 10 for lowest or highest figures. Lauderdale and Marshall counties topped that dubious latter list, both with 18.9 percent. Meanwhile, Blount County experienced a 0.4 percent increase to land at 9.6 percent and Cocke County jumped 1.2 percent to stop at 13.6. Jefferson County’s figure went up 0.8 percent to 12.5. Across the country the numbers don’t look much better, with the national, not seasonally adjusted rate increasing 0.3 percent to 9.7 percent, representing 14.7 million people without jobs across the country.

NASHVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Some would be much of a concern Tennessee lawmakers say because it would be spread theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re concerned about how over eight years. their constituents will react to a state revenue proposal that includes taxing cable TV and hiking driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license fees for the first time in more than 20 years. The measure is expected to generate more than $70 million, as part of Gov. Phil Bredesenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $28.41 billion budget proposal unveiled in his State of the State address this week. Finance Commissioner Dave Goetz fielded questions Tuesday from lawmakers about the revenue component and the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overall budget plan. The revenue proposal includes equalizing the sales tax on cable and satellite use and taxing cable boxes. The driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license fee increase â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from $19.50 for five years to $46 for eight years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; would be the first hike since 1988. Democratic Sen. Roy Herron of Dresden said people are hurting so badly from the recession that â&#x20AC;&#x153;any fee increase seems like a lot.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m going to go home and listen and see what people are feeling,â&#x20AC;? he said. The fee hike is expected to raise about $22 million, mainly for a new driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license issuance system, the purchase of better communication equipment for state troopers and to preserve the jobs of about 85 troopers and 56 driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license station positions. House Minority Leader Gary Odom said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe the fee increase

the increase. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This month weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen a cumulative effect of statistical information which resulted in our high rate of unemployment,â&#x20AC;? Labor Commissioner James Neeley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These figures are consistent with a weak holiday period that outweighed seasonal adjustments to the unemployment rate this time of year.â&#x20AC;? The numbers have been so bad across the state that even the good news isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all that good. Folks in Lincoln County might celebrate landing at the top of the list for the lowest rate in the state. Still, when they consider the fact that was with a 7.1 percent unemployment figure,



larly true when considering that the worst of the economic slump has just brought the county back near the unemployment levels it regularly experienced before it became so popular as a tourist destination. The number for December represents 5,030 local people out of work. If years past hold any insight, it appears likely the number will continue to grow as layoff figures from places like Dollywood, which stayed open into January for only the second time, start to be added in. Though each month for the last couple years has come with unemployment numbers higher than the same one in the previous year, that seems to be the trend across the state. Likewise, the news was pretty uniformly bad throughout Tennessee for December. During the month, only one county out of the 95 had an unemployment rate lower than in November, while the number increased in 91 counties and three stayed the same. Consequently, the statewide, not seasonally adjusted figure jumped 0.6 percent to land at 10.6 percent, a number state officials bemoaned since it was announced a couple weeks ago and before the county figures. They fault low sales during the Christmas season with

‘Road to Nowhere’ dispute settled Government will pay Swain County $52M After three years of efforts by U.S. Rep.

Punxsutawney Phil, right, is held by Ben Hughes after emerging from his burrow on Gobblers Knob in Punxsutawney, Pa., to see his shadow and forecast six more weeks of winter weather Tuesday.

Punxsutawney Phil predicts six more weeks of winter PUNXSUTAWNEY, Pa. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The groundhog has spoken. And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bad news. Punxsutawney Phil has emerged to see his shadow before chilly revelers in Pennsylvania, meaning winter will last another six weeks. German tradition holds that if a hibernating animal sees its shadow on Feb. 2 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Christian holiday of Candlemas â&#x20AC;&#x201D; winter will last another six weeks. If no shadow is seen, legend says spring will come early. The Inner Circle of the Punxsutawney Groundhog Club annually announces Philâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s forecast at dawn on Gobblerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Knob, about 65 miles northeast of Pittsburgh. Philâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s announcement came before hundreds of onlookers who huddled as temperatures hovered in the teens. The Groundhog Club says since 1887 Phil has predicted more winter weather by seeing his shadow nearly 100 times, but there are no records for nine years.

local folks try out their acting chops. Instituted by Library Director Kenton Temple several years ago as an effort to reach the community, the show has become an annual tradition for many and an unexpected fundraiser for the library as it has grown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just thoroughly enjoy the murder mystery genre. I did my masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thesis on murder mystery movies,â&#x20AC;? Temple says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I just thought this would be a great program for the library to offer.â&#x20AC;? Apparently, the community has agreed. The show has grown from just one night staged at the American Legion post to two nights in the muchlarger Mills Auditorium. That has meant its progression from just an outreach to an important line item in the libraryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s budget. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The money we make from the show does help provide some additional programs and it will help

us pay off the new building,â&#x20AC;? Temple explains. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to do first of all, though, is to get the community interested in reading, be that murder mysteries or some other genre.â&#x20AC;? And, of course, making it fun. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be good,â&#x20AC;? perennial cast member Bob Miller says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re always a lot of fun. We enjoy doing them and the audience really enjoys solving the murder. You see the kids all huddled up together trying to figure it out and the older people running around gathering clues.â&#x20AC;? Tickets are on sale now and can be purchased from cast members and at the library itself at its new location next to the Community Center at 158 Proffitt Road.

Anti-gang law largely unused COLUMBIA (AP) — A state law enacted 13 years ago to give gang members harsher prison sentences has likely never been successfully used by prosecutors in Tennessee. The Tennessee General Assembly approved legislation in 1997 authorizing district attorneys to seek stronger sentences for defendants convicted of gang offenses. At the time, supporters touted the law as evidence Tennessee was tackling a growing crime problem by lengthening

prison sentences for gang members. But 13 years later, there are numerous signs that prosecutors use the law sparingly, if at all, to combat gang activity, according to an investigation by The Daily Herald. State Rep. Ty Cobb, D-Columbia, says researchers on Capitol Hill have discovered the law has not lengthened a single sentence since it was implemented. The standard sentence for a first-time offender convicted of

armed robbery is eight to 12 years in prison, with eligibility for parole after 30 percent of the sentence is served. But, under the anti-gang law, if prosecutors prove the act was committed by a gang member, that sentence would be lengthened to 15- to 25-years with the same parole guidelines. Detective Korey Cooper of the Columbia Police Department’s gang-intelligence unit said authorities have discussed using

the statute, but it’s hard to prove someone belongs to a gang. “I can tell you Little Johnny is a gang member, and Little Johnny may tell you he is a gang member,” Cooper said. “But when it comes court time, it is a whole different story.” District Attorney General Mike Bottoms said it’s difficult to find people willing to identify somebody as a gang member, and often the enhancement penalty isn’t enough to warrant the extra work.

commentary

Success in Oregon may spread wide In politics, the winners get to write the history. When Republican Scott Brown, in an authentic upset on Jan. 19, won the special election to fill the Massachusetts Senate seat held for 47 years by the late Ted Kennedy, the victors told us that the Brown victory unmistakably proclaimed the electorate’s anger with one, or more, of the following: President Obama, his health care plan, the recession, Washington and its condescending indifference to ordinary citizens, Big Government, Big Deficits, Big Taxes, bailouts, Democrats and liberalism. Barely one week later — before the ink was even dry on the new, global meaning of Massachusetts — the voters of Oregon did what they had not done in 80 years: With their state suffering under an unemployment rate of 11 percent and facing an estimated budget gap of $727 million, the state’s voters, with an impressive 60 percent of them turning out — by a thumping 54 percent majority — endorsed an increase in the statewide income tax and raised the Oregon corporate tax rate. Oregon voters are seriously tax-adverse. In the first state to make political decisions through direct democracy by ballot questions, Oregon voters have on nine separate occasions voted against imposing any state sales tax. Oregon is one of only five states without a sales tax. The last tax increase to win support was in 2002, when, to help pay for the Oregon Health Plan, the state’s voters upped the tax on cigarettes. Since then, two statewide income tax hikes have been rejected at the polls. So what does this entirely unorthodox “Tax Revolt “ in Oregon mean? According to one of the winners, Steve Novick, 2008 Democratic U.S. Senate candidate and advocate-strategist for the winning “Vote Yes for Oregon” campaign, “Massachusetts was about (voters’) anger” over how “messed up things were.” Voters there demanded “to hold the people in charge responsible.” In Oregon, he says, “voters agreed things are messed up and we are going to do something about it.” What they did was to raise the state income tax rate on the fewer than 3 percent of Oregon households that earn over $250,000 a year or individuals who earn over $125,000 annually. The state’s corporate tax, where two-thirds of the state’s firms pay the minimum tax of $10 (yes, 10 dollars!), was also boosted. Arguing that without the new taxes, the cuts to the 93 percent of the state budget devoted to public education, public safety and public safety net for children and seniors would be painful and unfair, the proponents — wellfunded by teachers and public employee unions, and backed by a wide array of religious and civic groups — demanded that “big banks, credit card companies and the rich pay their fair share.” One TV spot consisted of separate indictments: Wall Street took billions in bonuses; bankers jacked up our credit card-rate; a lot of state corporations only pay the $10 corporate tax. Images of CEOs in private jets and luxury drove the message. Veteran Oregon political strategist Pat McCormick, who opposed the tax hikes in the business-backed “Oregonians Against Job-Killing Taxes,” conceded the winners “effectively tapped into populist anger.” Will success in Oregon — just for starters — embolden the Obama administration and Democrats in Congress to regulate, let alone tax, Wall Street and to make sure the Bush tax cuts for highearners expire? Kevin Looper, who managed the winning campaign, believes that others will take courage from what Oregonians did. “We registered 30,000 young voters, knocked on 300,000 doors, and we embraced people where they live. ... To make ours a better place, we all need to be less selfish.” Now that’s a really different idea! — Mark Shields is a veteran political campaign manager and frequent television talk show commentator.

Editorial

Hang in there Highway 66 torn up now, but finished product will be a delight It was inevitable that the widening project on Highway 66 (Winfield Dunn Parkway) in Sevierville was going to create some difficulties for businesses along the route. You can’t widen a road from two lanes to three on both sides without creating some disruption for businesses that depend upon motorists driving that busy highway to stop and eat, shop and refuel. It’s hard to find consensus, but any consensus among merchants about what the road project has meant to them is hard to get at. Some say it hasn’t been a problem at all. Others say it has. For sure, access to some stores close to downtown Sevierville in the shopping center that houses Staples, Lowe’s and Kroger has been limited. There used to be several ways to get to those businesses. Now some of the access roads have been cut off because of construction barriers. Still, if driv-

ers want to get to the stores, they can. They just can’t get to them in as many ways. Highway construction is always going to cause disruption. It can’t be helped, especially when the project is as extensive as this one. Highway 66 is being widened to three lanes from near downtown to Boyds Creek Highway. Not long after that’s finished, widening of the stretch from the interstate south to Sevierville will begin. Most big cities always have roads torn up and improvements being done. If you’ve ever driven to and through Atlanta or even Nashville, you know what that means. The end result is usually satisfying because making roads wider produces smoother traffic flow. Is there anyone who doesn’t think the Interstate 40 project through downtown Knoxville didn’t improve things? It’s as if the closure of that road for 14 months is

a distant memory, now that the finished project is available and almost universally praised. So too will the reaction to a wider Highway 66 be received. Getting tourists to their destination has never been easy in Sevier County. The bottlenecks along Highway 66 and the Parkway are a regular weekend occurrence, yet the visitors keep coming because once they arrive, there is so much for them to do. Squeezing more than 12 million tourists each year into a county this small is always going to be a challenge. Meanwhile, be patient, merchants, as the Highway 66 project unfolds. It may be tough for some of you now, but when the road is six lanes and the traffic truly flows, motorists will be in a better mood and more likely to want to stop and see you. Then the headaches you’re experiencing now will be as distant a memory as the ones in downtown Knoxville.

State teacher shortage must be addressed A statewide report showing Tennessee will lack 31,000 teachers by 2014 should be a wakeup call to state and local officials that more should be done to encourage people to enter this honorable profession. The report determined that the biggest shortages will be in English as a second language, music and arts, eighth grade and vocational teachers, with kindergarten having the smallest demand. On the local level, Rutherford County Schools is projected to be 186 teachers short in 2010 and 1,742 by 2014, with the greatest needs in vocational, eighth grade, special education, seventh grade and kindergarten. The study found Murfreesboro City Schools will need 84 teachers in 2010 and 395 teachers in 2014. With some 40 schools, that means Rutherford County could be short more than four teachers in each school, on average, while Murfreesboro, which has 10 elementary schools, would need

more than eight more teachers per school. Rutherford County and Murfreesboro schools officials, however, say they have plenty of applications to fill job openings, which may mean the study is off the mark or local systems simply don’t have the dollars to fund the number of teachers really needed. The truth probably lies somewhere in between, and the people who conducted the study found that the shortage is coming not because of student enrollment growth but because the teacher population is dropping. The state loses about 10 percent of its teachers annually, but universities are putting only a third of the teachers needed into the field each year, according to its authors. The first thing local and state officials must do is acknowledge the looming problem, then address it. That could be done in a number of ways, the most obvious of which would be better pay.

A starting teacher with a bachelor’s degree makes $28,365, while a teacher with a master’s degree and 15 years of experience makes an average of $40,555 annually in Tennessee. A teacher with a doctorate makes an average of $48,655 with 15 years on the job. In recent years, though, teacher pay increases have not kept pace with the cost of living, especially with budgets across the state tighter in the midst of recession. Murfreesboro City Schools teachers, for instance, are still trying to negotiate a pay increase for the current year. The state is trying to lure people out of private industry to teach science and math. But more must be done overall to make it easier for people with years of experience in the field to transfer into the classroom. Flexibility is a must, because under the current system Tennessee is losing too many teachers and not gaining enough, according to the study.

NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE

Injured Freeney still hopes to play in Super Bowl MIAMI (AP) — Colts defensive end Dwight Freeney still hopes to play in the Super Bowl despite a torn ligament in his right ankle. “Hopefully, towards the end of the week it starts to get better,” Freeney said at Tuesday’s media day. “The decision will come later on in the week. It’s kind of

early now.” An All-Pro player, Freeney wore a pair of flipflops to the morning session. His injured ankle was unwrapped. “Very discouraging” was how he described his inability to practice for Sunday’s NFL title game against the New Orleans Saints.

“The competitor in me says they’ll never stop me from being on the field,” he said with a laugh before adding: “There’s some pain there definitely, with throwing everything at it, all types of techniques, to find the best thing to get this thing as good as possible. You name it, I’ve probably done it.”

Freeney injured the ankle in the AFC championship game against the New York Jets and said the chances of working out later this week weren’t good. He’s the only starter on either team who might miss the game because of injury. Freeney said he’s enlisted the help of chiroprac-

Lady Highlanders fall to visiting Gibbs By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer

Cobey Hitchcock/The Mountain Press

G-P junior Lacee Tinker draws a shooting foul during the second quarter of Tuesday night’s game against visiting Gibbs. standout Karsen Sims was limited due to illness and G-P senior Caroline Conner was not with the team for the second straight game. Someone had to step up for the Lady Blue and Gold, and that player was junior guard Beka Owens, who sniped a trey with 6 seconds left in the first quarter to cut the Gibbs edge to 14-13 heading into the second. Owens put the Lady Highlanders on top for the first time in the game with a steal and a nice assist to junior teammate Stephanie Taylor for an easy layup and a 15-14 G-P lead with

7:44 in the half. But then Owens went out with 7:17 in the second quarter due to a scary looking leg injury. That’s when Dodgen, juniors Lacee Tinker and Makenna Lewis and freshman Destiny Balzer - playing varsity minutes for the first time this season - stepped up their games and helped G-P maintain a 33-29 lead heading into the locker rooms at intermission. Also, Owens returned for the second half of the second quarter and seemed fine, hitting a trey with 1:55 in the half to give the

Lady Blue a 29-24 lead at the time. The teams battled backand-forth throughout the third quarter. G-P junior Macy Shults and sophomore Sami John hit treys from opposite corners on consecutive possessions to give the Lady Highlanders a 53-51 lead inside a minute in the third. But Gibbs’ A.J. Whited sniped a trey just before the horn to give the Lady Eagles a slim 54-53 edge heading into the fourth period of play. chitchcock@themountainpress.com

NATIONAL SIGNING DAY

Tide, Tigers both set to land Top-5 classes MONTGOMERY, Ala. (AP) — The Auburn Tigers have a long way to go to catch up with national champion Alabama on the playing field, but they’re clearly making inroads on the recruiting trail. The Tigers and Crimson Tide both are poised to sign Top 5-rated recruiting classes on Wednesday. That seems practically a foregone conclusion these days for coach Nick Saban

replace Freeney in the lineup, took it a step further. “I think he’ll be back and playing third downs. And I think he’ll be effective, until I see something different,” Brock said. Freeney, the former league sacks champ, led the Colts with 13 sacks and is considered the team’s defensive leader.

COMMENTARY AND OPINION

PREP BASKETBALL

GATLINBURG - A trend has developed for the Gatlinburg-Pittman Lady Highlanders basketball team - compete for the better part of four quarters only to fade down the stretch in another disappointing loss. Including Tuesday night’s 64-55 loss to the visiting Gibbs Lady Eagles, G-P has now dropped six of its past seven hardfought contests. The Lady Highlanders entered the fourth quarter trailing by just a point, 54-53. The deficit remained the same with 6:17 remaining and G-P down 56-55. That’s when Gibbs decided to slow down the pace and had guard Taylor Mills - who led all scorers on the night with 29 points - stand in one spot and dribble the ball for nearly 90 seconds. The crowd started booing 45 seconds into the dribble, but the Lady Highlanders appeared to be content to allow the seconds to continue to tick off the board and refused to put pressure on Mills. Finally, Gibbs ran a play that resulted in a turnover with 4:50 remaining. But the Lady Highlanders offense had gone AWOL by then and didn’t score a point the rest of the night. G-P had its chances down the stretch, but they couldn’t even buy a layup as Gibbs slowly padded its lead with charity shots. It didn’t help that G-P senior Morgan Dodgen was called for her fifth and final foul on the ensuing possession, when the refs ruled a charge instead of a block on a boom-boom play. “That call on Morgan was huge,” said G-P coach Mike Rader. “If they call a block there, it’s a different game. Losing Morgan at that point of the game was huge. If she stays in the game, I think it’s a different outcome.” Things didn’t look promising for the Lady Highlanders even before the Lady Eagles jumped out to a 5-0 lead to start the contest. G-P senior Leah Bryan was out nursing a right ankle sprain, freshman

tors, slept in an oxygen chamber, used ice, regular therapy and anything else team doctors prescribed, to try to get the ankle to heal. Despite everything, his teammates still believe Freeney will be on the field Sunday. Defensive lineman Raheem Brock, who would

and the Tide, but Auburn has also been loading up on blue-chip recruits in what could be a launching-pad class for Gene Chizik & Co. Chizik isn’t surprised by the recruiting success. “This time last year after recruiting had ended, we set down a goal and we set down a path of hard work and how we want to get a Top 5 class, not just this year but every year,” the Auburn coach said

Tuesday. “I think we still have a chance to do that. “We’ve gone after what we consider to be the best players in the country to get them to visit our school.” It’s the first full recruiting class for Chizik and his assistant coaches. Last year, he mainly tried to keep the previous staff’s recruits in the fold while adding a few more after his hiring in December. The ambitions were high-

er for this one following an 8-5 season. Scout.com, Rivals. com and ESPN have both Auburn and Alabama’s classes rated among the nation’s five best going into signing day, picking each as high as third behind Florida and Texas. Chizik regards this as a key class for building the program, but figures it will take a few years to really solidify things.

National Signing Day

How will Dooley do? If you’re a hardcore college football fan, like I am, today is a red-letter day. It’s national signing day. The day 17-and-18-year-old kids decide where they’re going to play college football and most fans swear their team is either headed for the promised land or the land of the lost. I, personally, don’t put that much stock into it. For me it’s the college equivalent of the NFL draft — a chance for fans to get really excited about their teams based solely on the reputation of unproven players. It makes something for ESPN and sportstalk radio to talk about, and, admittedly, something for sportswriters to write about. Still, this signing day is huge for new Tennessee Volunteers coach Derek Dooley. Dooley, who appeared to be Volunteer Athletic Director Mike Hamilton’s fourth or fifth choice for head coach, had a lot of ground to cover to win over Vol fans from day one. To begin with, he wasn’t a big name in the coaching search. Heck, he was a relative unknown in Big Orange Country until the night before his hiring. Dooley won over some of the fanbase with his nononsense approach at his introductory press conference — with his good manners, his acknowledgement of Tennessee traditions and he ‘aww shucks’ southern accent. Hardened Vol fans, burned by the tenure of the previous coach, were a little more skeptical, pointing out Dooley’s Louisiana Tech coaching record and questioning his recruiting prowess. Dooley can go a long way today to silence at least one of those critical concerns. If Dooley saves the recruiting class feared wrecked by the coach not to be named, he’ll make a believer — at least in recruiting — out of some of the critics. The recruiting news coming out of Knoxville over the weeks since the coaching change has been mixed. For every recruit feared lost, another one has been seemingly secured or plucked from the grasp of another team. Sure, some of the players aren’t as highly-decorated as those lured by the previous staff, but hey, ask former UT coach Phil Fulmer, stars aren’t everything. Looking back over some of the recruiting classes he forged with the Vols, it’s easy to see the recruiting services themselves sometimes fumble the ball. Just looks at some of the big misses over the past seven classes the Vols have signed: Rivals’ five-stars — Brandon Jeffries, James

Banks, Mondre Dickerson, Albert Toeaina, Demetrice Morley, Kenny O’Neal, Chris Donald and Brent Vinson. On the other hand, several two and three-stars have made a huge impact on the Volunteer program. Dan Williams, Tennessee’s best defensive tackle the past two years, was a three star. Arian Foster, love him or hate him, is Tennessee’s secondleading career rusher —a three star. Chris Brown, a nice tight end for the Vols, was a mere two-star. Marvin Mitchell was a three star — he’s playing in the Super Bowl on Sunday. Brad Cottam and Luke Stocker, both three stars, have been great tight ends for Tennessee and Cottam’s playing on Sundays for the Chiefs. Add to that several guys with five-star talent that only warranted four stars (Jason Allen, Aaron Sears and Jerod Mayo) and it’s easy to see how really inaccurate the star ratings can prove to be. Still, as is often pointed out, it’s easier to win with 20 four and five-stars than with 20 two and three-stars. In most cases, the recruiting services are fairly close. In a perfect world, Tennessee would get a few high profile players and a bunch of blue-collar guys that blossom into big-time contributors at Neyland Stadium. Here are a few guys/scenarios to watch out for as things heat up today: • Will Da’Rick Rogers follow high school teammate Nash Nance to the Vols? Rogers supposedly has blistering speed and a prototype wide receiver build. Getting him would be a huge. • Will Markeith Ambles follow through on his earlier commitment to the Vols, or will he bolt for USC or North Carolina? Should UT get Ambles, Rogers and a their other WR commitments, the Orange and White could once again be Wide Receiver U. • Along with Juwaun James, can Tennessee snare more offensive line help for next season — specifically James Stone, Damien Robinson or maybe even Chaz Green? • And finally, how many one-time Tennessee commitments will head west of the Mississippi to become a Trojan? It looks likely for juco linebacker Glen Stanley, though I hope not. UTsports.com will post updates throughout the day.

IndyCar driver Danica Patrick unveils her GoDaddy.com No. 7 JR Motorsports stock car Tuesday, Dec. 8, 2009, in Phoenix. Patrick has signed with JR Motorsports team and will start in her first in an ARCA Series race on Feb. 6 at Daytona. race in NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second series for twelve events in 2010. In order for new drivers in NASCAR to be permitted to race at the fast Daytona International Speedway they must first prove themselves in some other way. Thus, Ms. Patrick will attempt an ARCA run to gain approval for her proposed Nationwide start the following week. Over the course of her Indycar career Danica has won one race, a fuel mileage saving run in Japan back in 2008. Aside from her racing career, she is well known for her television commercials and magazine cover photos. She brings a short list of racing credentials and excessive marketability to stock car racing. With all that said, one has to wonder just what will happen if she actually wins something? With all the attention she is already commanding without having accomplished anything

other than signing a contract in NASCAR the publicity will be off the charts if she were to be posing for pictures in victory lane at some point this season. My guess is that should she actually win a race fans will be left wondering if there are any other drivers out there. However, my prediction is that all of this speculation is for nothing. Her best chance to win will come this week-

end in the ARCA race where her Hendrick car may simply overpower the rest of the field. I do not foresee her winning a Nationwide event. But one thing is for sure, Danica Patrick will be getting plenty of attention this weekend both in Daytona and in her Super Bowl television commercials.

Haiti relief food convoy attacked

STOCK EXCHANGE HIGHLIGHTS

1

PORT-AU-PRINCE, Haiti â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Twenty armed men blocked a road and tried to hijack a convoy of food for earthquake victims, but were driven off by police gunfire, U.N. officials said Tuesday as they warned of security problems in a still-desperate nation. The attack on the convoy as it carried supplies from an airport in the southern town of Jeremie underscored the shaky safety in the streets that has added to Haitiansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; frustration at the slow pace of aid since the Jan. 12 earthquake. Most quake victims are still living outside in squalid tents of sheets and sticks and aid officials acknowledge they have not yet gotten food to the majority of those in need. Mobs have stolen food and looted goods from their neighbors in the camps, prompting many to band together or stay awake at night to prevent raids. About 20 armed men blockaded a street Saturday and attacked a convoy carrying food from the airport in Jeremie, according to UN spokesman Vicenzo Pugliese. U.N. and Haitian officers fired warning gunshots and the men fled the scene, Pugliese said. No injuries were reported and no one was hurt. Haitian police have increased their own patrols and are accompanying UN police guarding aid distribution.

Child with ADHD stirs up trouble during family functions

Zits

Blondie

Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: My husband’s brother has a 10-year-old son. He’s an only child and still sleeps with his parents. He has a perfectly nice bedroom, but they never got around to making him sleep by himself. My brother-inlaw travels a great deal for work, and when he’s away, “Timmy” sleeps in his mother’s bed. When my brother-in-law is home, one of the parents sleeps with Timmy in his bedroom. During the holidays, things happened that caused problems with the cousins. Timmy doesn’t sit at the table for family dinners. He throws tantrums because he doesn’t want to eat what everyone else is eating. Of course, his young cousins then copy him and act up the same way. Also, the children help with the cleanup -- even the youngest takes her plate to the kitchen. Timmy, however, watches TV. No one insists that he lift a finger. Timmy has been diagnosed with ADHD, but doesn’t he still require structure? His parents have never said “no” to him. He has more toys than a department store. He really is a sweet kid, but has few friends, and because he hasn’t been taught better manners, things will only get worse as he gets older. We all feel sorry for this boy. A few of us have tried talking to his parents. They know they should set some boundaries and work on his behavior, but they haven’t done so. Any suggestions? -Concerned Family Dear Concerned: Parenting is a tough job. It requires that parents

do what is best for their child even if it is difficult and taxing for them. Your brother-in-law and his wife have decided it‚s too much effort to reprogram their son, so they allow him to run the show, and he knows it. Suggest they discuss this with the pediatrician and get a referral for a family counselor who will teach them how to be the parents their child needs. Dear Annie: I will be 15 in a few days. I need to work up the courage to ask my parents to get me birth control. I don’t want my folks to think I’m a slut or anything. But I also don’t want to make any mistakes with my love life. I think it’s better to be safe than sorry. Can you help me find a way to ask them about it? -- The Kid With Angry Parents Dear Kid: Are you already having sex? Birth control pills contain hormones, and unless you need them, there is no point to flooding your system with unnecessary medication. You are smart to want to be prepared, but we hope you will postpone intimacy for a little while longer. You shouldn’t feel rushed or pressured. Try talking to your mother privately when she is calm and relaxed. Explain that you are thinking about sex and want to be ready. Be sure to tell her that you value her input. If you

I started coloring my hair at age 40 to please my husband. He said, “It’s not so bad being a grandfather, but it’s no fun being married to a grandmother. Please get rid of the gray.” So, for 30-some years, I was a redheaded “hottie” in his eyes. Recently, after I got smart and tired of coloring every six months, I quit. Guess what? Not one of my silver-haired friends noticed the difference. They accept me at face value and love me just the same as when I was an auburn-haired “beauty.” And I am sure, from up on his cloud, that my husband does, too. I love my silvered hair. It goes well with everything and gives me an air of respectability. Nice younger men open doors for me, offer to carry my laundry basket and smile. Silver hair is the key to kindness when it’s needed. -- Been There Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Hurt Locker,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Avatarâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; each receive 9 Oscar nominations

Stars rerecord â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;We Are the Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; to give help to Haiti LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The charity anthem â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Are the Worldâ&#x20AC;? has been rerecorded by 80 artists who came together in the same Hollywood studio where the original was cut 25 years ago. Pink, Natalie Cole, Kanye West, Jennifer Hudson, Celine Dion, Brian Wilson and others stood shoulderto-shoulder on risers at Henson Recording studios Monday night to raise money for Haiti earthquake relief. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This one, the enthusiasm, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never seen anything like it,â&#x20AC;? said Lionel Richie, who wrote the original with Michael Jackson and oversaw the new version with music mogul Quincy Jones, 76. Jones, who produced the 1985 anthem, announced last week that he planned to redo the song to benefit recovery efforts after the devastating 7.0-magnitude earthquake struck Haiti on Jan. 12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We Are the World â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 25 for Haitiâ&#x20AC;? will premiere this month during coverage of the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics on NBC, according to a release from promoter AEG Live. On Monday, stars converged on Studio A in the afternoon and stayed several hours. Richie and Jones worked with a select number of soloists, including Pussycat Dolls singer Nicole Scherzinger, later into the night. At one point during a break, the musicians broke out into an a cappella version of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lean on Me,â&#x20AC;? a classic moment jump-started by singer Melanie Fiona leaning on another artist because her feet were tired. Gesturing with her hands, and shifting her headphones from ear to ear, Barbra Streisand recorded her solo over and over, completely absorbed in the recording process and stopping only to correct her pitch.

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The science-fiction sensation â&#x20AC;&#x153;Avatarâ&#x20AC;? and the war-on-terror thriller â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hurt Lockerâ&#x20AC;? lead the Academy Awards with nine nominations each, including best picture and director for former spouses James Cameron and Kathryn Bigelow. For the first time since 1943 the Oscars feature 10 best-picture contenders instead of the usual five. Also nominated for best-picture Tuesday: â&#x20AC;&#x153;District 9â&#x20AC;?; the animated comedy â&#x20AC;&#x153;Upâ&#x20AC;?; the World War II saga â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inglourious Basterdsâ&#x20AC;?; the football drama â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Blind Sideâ&#x20AC;?; the recession tale â&#x20AC;&#x153;Up in The Air,â&#x20AC;? the 1960s drama â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Serious Man,â&#x20AC;? and the teen tales â&#x20AC;&#x153;An Educationâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Precious: Based on the Novel â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Pushâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; By Sapphire.â&#x20AC;? Acting nominees include the four stars who have dominated early awards shows: lead players Sandra Bullock for the football drama â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Blind Sideâ&#x20AC;? and Jeff Bridges for the country-music tale â&#x20AC;&#x153;Crazy Heartâ&#x20AC;? and supporting performers Moâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Nique for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Preciousâ&#x20AC;? and Christoph Waltz for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Inglourious Basterds.â&#x20AC;? The best-picture and director categories shape up as a showdown between ex-spouses who directed films that have dominated earlier Hollywood honors. Cameronâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Avatarâ&#x20AC;? won best drama and director at the Golden Globes, while Bigelowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hurt Lockerâ&#x20AC;? beat out Cameron at the Directors Guild of America Awards, whose recipient usually goes on to earn the best-director Oscar. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hurt Lockerâ&#x20AC;? also beat â&#x20AC;&#x153;Avatarâ&#x20AC;? for the Producers Guild of America top prize and was chosen as last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s best film by many key critics groups. Bigelow said she was gratified and humbled. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge, huge compliment to the entire cast and crew,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was a very difficult shoot of heat and sun and windstorms and sandstorms and they had to unite crew from Lebanon and Israel.â&#x20AC;? Bigelow, whose films include â&#x20AC;&#x153;Point Breakâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;K19: The Widowmaker,â&#x20AC;? is only the fourth woman nominated for a directing Oscar, following Sofia Coppola for 2003â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lost in Translation,â&#x20AC;? Jane Campion for 1993â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Pianoâ&#x20AC;? and Lina Wertmuller for 1975â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Seven Beauties.â&#x20AC;? No woman has ever won the directing Oscar, and until Bigelow, no woman had ever won the Directors Guild honor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hope someday we can lose the modifier and that becomes a moot point whether the person is male or female and theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re just filmmakers making statements that they believe in,â&#x20AC;? Bigelow said. Lee Daniels, who made â&#x20AC;&#x153;Precious,â&#x20AC;? became only the second black filmmaker nominated for best director, after John Singleton for 1991â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Boyz N the Hood.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;After 82 years, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the first film nominated for best picture directed by an African-American,â&#x20AC;? Daniels said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t that great? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so exciting.â&#x20AC;?
