Doing a double-take Science teachers share ranger experience By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer

JONES COVE — Students at Jones Cove Elementary School are used to seeing longtime science teacher Sharon Balch around — but this week she’s caught several double-takes. “The kids look at me and ask, ‘Why are you wearing that?’” Balch said of her Great Smoky Mountains National Park uniform with a laugh. It’s all part of the National Parks’ Teacher to Ranger to Teacher Program, in which selected teachers spend a summer working as uniformed park rangers.

SEVIERVILLE — Eagle’s Landing Golf Club doesn’t have a new director, and likely won’t until sometime after construction of the new course and clubhouse are completed. City Administrator Steve Hendrix said managers at the golf course are still overseeing their departments after the dismissal of Director of Golf Operations Faye Randolph following accusations she had misused funds for the golf course. The city has turned over its evidence to the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation, which has opened an investigation into the matter. Randolph’s dismissal comes at a key time for the golf course, which is in the middle of adding a full second course and building the new golf course as part of the city’s Central Business Improvement District projects. The city has hired The William Charles Group as a consultant to aid in developing its plans for the expanded golf club, but the group is not taking over management of the course, Hendrix said. The city will not advertise the position until after construction is finished, Hendrix explained. “We’ll have a better idea of who we need (when the work is finished),” Hendrix explained. The William Charles Group was hired to oversee completion of the project, and help the city develop a business plan and marketing plan for the golf club. It has played a similar role in the development of municipal and private golf clubs around the world. The group was hired last year, long before the crisis with Randolph arose, to aid in that capacity. “They aren’t directing the golf course, and we aren’t leasing the golf course to them,” Hendrix said. The group has helped the city save money on several parts of the project by suggesting changes to existing plans, he said, and helped to move the estimated date of completion of the course from sometime next year to later this year, so that it will roughly coincide with completion of the clubhouse. n

Lodge development clears county hurdle By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer

SEVIERVILLE — Those who want to stay at the LeConte Lodge at the top of one of Sevier County’s most prominent peaks but are concerned about the high price or strenuous trek in may soon have another option for that type of remote retreat in Wears Valley. The County Commission voted unanimously to approve a rezoning request from Paul Maples to move property he owns in the 4100 block of Wears Valley Road from an A-1 (agricultural) designation to one of C-1 (rural commercial). The change seems to be the last governmental hurdle before Maples begins his development. Maples presented plans for the facility to the county’s Planning Commission during a recent session, saying he plans something unique but, at the same time, similar to See LODGE, Page A5

Mayor recovering from ‘very successful surgery’ By JEFF FARRELL Staff writer

Gail Crutchfield/The Mountain Press

SEVIERVILLE — Mayor Bryan Atchley is home and recovering after undergoing surgery to address prostate cancer. Atchley’s surgery was Monday; he missed the regular meeting of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen that evening. He was released Tuesday and back at home Wednesday. He said he plans to Atchley return to work at Sevier County Nursing Home on Monday. “It’s prostate cancer, but it was caught early,” he said Wednesday. “I had very successful surgery and I’m at home recuperating.” Atchley said the prognosis from his doctors was very good after the surgery. The cancer was detected early on because he’d been getting some tests to monitor his cholesterol, he said.

Commission candidates respond to questions EDITOR’S NOTE: This is another in a series on candidates for the Sevier County Commission. These are candidates for District 7, Seat A. The same set of questions was sent by The Mountain Press to all candidates in contested races in the May 4 primary. Answers are published in their entirety. District 7 includes the north Sevierville/Catlettsburg area.

7th District, Seat A 1. What do you think the biggest issues facing the county will be in the next four years? RONNIE ALLEN: Jobs and traffic problems. LARRY ETHERTON: I think the biggest issues facing the county are the jobs, traffic/roads, and our education. 2. Do you support purchasing more industrial property, even in a slow economy? RONNIE ALLEN: Yes, I do. I think it’s probably a

good time to buy land. LARRY ETHERTON: If the county already has industrial property and is not producing jobs for the people in the community, why buy more unless someone says they can produce jobs for the unemployed. We need to review this in detail, to see what opportunities may be presented in the future. 3. What do you think Sevier County should do to give itself a more year-round economy? RONNIE ALLEN: Recruit more industry and factory jobs for year round employment. LARRY ETHERTON: I think that the county should research industries that will help our economy, and that will produce good paying jobs for the citizens and their families. 4. Some counties in the state are facing financial challenges that may lead to cuts. What is your assessment of Sevier County’s financial situation? RONNIE ALLEN: We

County will face financial hardships. We need to study this matter in depth.

5. The county has no nepotism policy or a policy that limits county employees from holding office. Should there be a policy that addresses this issue? RONNIE ALLEN: No, not at this time. I think we should check with other counties and see what their policies are. LARRY ETHERTON: I think if a county employee is doing his/her job and there is no conflict of interest, then they should have the opportunity to run for office. 6. The county may be sued and have to spend thousands of dollars to defend the use of the Lord’s Prayer at meetings. Is there a way to avoid spending this money through compromise or change? RONNIE ALLEN: I believe we must stand against the people who

are trying to harm our county with these lawsuits and by taking the Lord’s Prayer and a copy of the Ten Commandments out of our meetings and the courthouse. LARRY ETHERTON: I believe in public prayer, and will pray often about this issue if and when it comes before the commission. 7. New rules on hillside development are about to come before the County Commission? What is your take on those rules, and should the county do more or less land-use regulation? RONNIE ALLEN: I have served on the Planning Commission for almost eight years and most all rules are now in place. However, there is always room for improvement. LARRY ETHERTON: I support less land use as long as common sense, fair approach that don’t deny the property owner his basic rights.

Lonesome Valley Road relocation is approved by BOMA by one vote By JEFF FARRELL Staff writer

Jeff Farrell/The Mountain Press

The Sevier County Master Gardener’s Association drew lots of interest this year, especially for a lecture for Neal Denton, director of the Knox County agriculture extension office.

Master Gardener show blooms Perfect weather helps draw a record crowd By JEFF FARRELL Staff writer SEVIERVILLE — The Sevier County Master Gardeners Association’s annual flower and garden show proved a bigger draw than ever Saturday as it enjoyed perfect spring weather.

The event has been plagued by rain before, but Saturday there was no excuse for horticulturists to stay home. Volunteers said they had one of the best crowds yet for the day-long event held at the Sevier County Fairgrounds. The event gives new and experienced gardeners a chance to come to lectures, pick up equipment or buy plants as spring planting season gets into full swing. Cindy Ogle of Seymour was leaving with a lantana under her arm. “I come every year,� she said. “I

really like it. I always buy something.� The event also drew more vendors this year than in years past, officials said. Organizer Janet Evans said they had to add some new tents for vendors because they’d filled the buildings at the fairgrounds. They’re already hoping to add more tents for the next event, she said. “It’s been fantastic, absolutely fantastic,� she said.

SEVIERVILLE — The Board of Mayor and Aldemren approved the relocation of Lonesome Valley Road Monday by a one -vote margin, apparently ending the debate over whether developers should be allowed to move the road from along the Little Pigeon River. The Soggy Bottom Boys Partnership owns all the land in question, and is planning a commercial development on its property. As part of its plans, the group wants to move the road away from the shore so it can build in that area. City officials have said that the relocation would improve the road, and that the group would bring it up to current city standards. The partnership owns the property on both sides of the proposed new section of the road. Residents who live on neighboring property, however, have complained to the board that they don’t want to see the road moved. Attorney Richard Wallace represented the neighbors at Monday’s meeting. He asked the board to reconsider the matter on several grounds, including that the new route would lead to cars shining their lights right into his clients’ home at night. Alderman Claud Ownby noted the board has faced similar issues in the past, including an occasion when developers sue after the board sided with neighbors and refused to rezone property. The city lost the lawsuit, he noted, and had to pay the court costs. “About the only way you can keep property from being developed is by buying it yourself,� he said. Alderman Jerry Loveday said he wasn’t sure that comparison applied to this case. “About the only way you can keep property from being developed is by buying it yourself,� he said. “A river view to me is as important as a mountaintop. We lose something if we let a developer take riverfront property (that belongs to the city).� Loveday and Alderman Travis McCroskey voted against the measure, while Vice Mayor Dale Carr joined Ownby and Alderman Barry Gibbs in voting in its favor. n

Those rentable structures will be accessible only by foot, though the trail will be shorter and less strenuous than the one that carries overnight guests to LeConte. Additionally, a parking area near the cabins will make them accessible even for those with limited mobility, Maples said.

Bristol Palin testifies in e-mail case KNOXVILLE (AP) — Sarah Palin’s daughter testified Wednesday against a former college student charged with breaking into her mother’s e-mail account, saying she got anonymous phone calls and hundred of text messages after her cell phone number was posted online. “There was one that really scared me,” Bristol Palin testified in federal court. She said she was concerned when a bunch of boys called, claiming they were at her front door and needed to be let in. “We live in the middle of

nowhere in Alaska ... in the middle of the woods,” Palin said. Palin said her number was included with a photo she snapped of her brother Trigg taking his first bite of solid food and e-mailed to her parents while they were away during the 2008 presidential campaign. David Kernell, a 22-yearold former economics major, is accused of invading Sarah Palin’s Yahoo! account after she was picked as the Republican vice presidential candidate. It was reported that she used private e-mail for some government busi-



ness while governor of Alaska. Authorities say Kernell correctly guessed answers to personal security questions based on published facts about Palin, reset the password to “popcorn,” then made screenshots of contents of her account and posted some of the information on public websites. Kernell has not been accused of the harassing calls, e-mails and text messages that Bristol Palin and a former aide described to jurors. His attorney claims the e-mail intrusion was just a prank.

“But I will say that I want somebody who is going to be interpreting our Constitution in a way that takes into account individual rights, and that includes women’s rights. And that’s going to be something that’s very important to me, because I think part of what our core constitutional values promote is the notion that individuals are protected in their privacy and their bodily integrity.

Bristol Palin testified in the second day of the felony trial that she had to turn her phone over to investigators and went without phone service for weeks because her grandparents’ Wasilla home had no land line and couldn’t sign a new cell phone contract as a 17-year-old. She said her cell phone number “wouldn’t have been posted if it hadn’t been hacked into.” “There were threatening messages and there were harassing messages and there were all sorts of messages,” she testified.

Many myths affect view of capitalism I won 19 Emmy Awards by reporting a myth: that business constantly rips us off — that capitalism is mostly cruel and unfair. I know that’s a myth now. So I was glad to see the publication of “The 5 Big Lies About American Business” by Michael Medved. “You can only make a profit in this country by giving people a product or a service that they want,” Medved recently told me. “It’s the golden rule in action.” Medved used to write about the movies, so he’s familiar with the businessman as villain. I’ll play a clip from the movie “Syriana,” in which an oil tycoon makes this ridiculous speech: “Corruption keeps us safe and warm. Corruption is why you and I are prancing around in here instead of fighting over scraps of meat out in the street.” “What’s interesting,” Medved commented, “is that in the old days, Hollywood would have businesspeople who were very positive: George Bailey, the Jimmy Stewart character, is a banker in ‘It’s a Wonderful Life.’” No longer. Today’s movie capitalists are criminals or playboys. Apparently, Hollywood writers think it’s plausible that CEOs have lots of time to sip cocktails and chase women. “In school, we all studied a book called ‘The Theory of the Leisure Class,’ which ... indicted the leisure class and these people who were out there exploiting other people and really had nothing to do except sit on their yachts and go to their swimming pools and their vacations.” In real life, that’s nonsense. “The higher up on the income scale you go, the less leisure time you have. You make money in this country by working hard.” Medved’s second myth is that when the rich get richer, the poor get poorer. This is the old zero-sum fallacy, which ignores that when two people engage in free exchange, both gain -- or they wouldn’t have traded. It’s what I call the double thank-you phenomenon. I understand why politicians and lawyers believe it: It’s true in their world. But it’s not true in business. “If you believe that when the rich get richer, the poor get poorer, then you believe that creating wealth causes poverty, and you’re an idiot,” said Medved. “One of the things that I hate is this term ‘obscene profits.’ There are no obscene profits ... . (The current economic downturn shows) “that when the rich get poorer ... everybody gets poorer.” Myth No. 3: Government is more fair and reliable than business. “Remember the last time you went into Starbucks, and then remember the last time you went into the DMV to get your license,” Medved said. “Where did you get better treated? And it’s not because the barista is some kind of idealist or humanitarian. She wants a tip. She wants you to come back to the Starbucks ... .” But the left doesn’t get it. “This is the suspicion of the profit motive — the idea that if somebody is selflessly serving me, they’re going to treat me better than somebody who wants to make a buck,” Medved said. But “(i)f you think about it in your own life, if somebody is benefiting from his interaction with you ... it’s a far more reliable kind of interaction than someone who comes and says I’m in this only for you.” Myth No. 4: The current downturn means the death of capitalism. “Capitalism is alive and well,” Medved said. I’m also bugged when people argue that today’s problems prove that capitalism “failed.” What failed? We had a correction. A bubble popped. But from 1982 to now, the Dow rose from 800 to 11,000. Had it happened without the bubble, we’d say this is one of the great boom periods. Medved added: “This is one of the biggest lies — the idea that because of capitalism, we’re all suffering. ... Poor people in America today, people who are officially in poverty, have a higher standard of living in terms of medical standards, in terms of the chances of going to college, in terms of the way people live, than middle-class people did 30 years ago. It’s an extraordinary achievement of technology and of the profit sector.” — John Stossel hosts a show on the Fox Business Channel and is the author of “Myth, Lies, and Downright Stupidity: Get Out the Shovel — Why Everything You Know is Wrong.” (C)2009 JFS Productions Inc.


It’s our home

Earth Day good reminder to take better care of our planet The center of the Sevier County entertainment world, at least for this week, is Gatlinburg. There you’ll find Earth Day observances, the annual Ribfest & Wings festival (today), and the Wildflower Pilgrimage, 60th edition (through the weekend). Earth Day often gets overlooked both in observance and importance, and that’s too bad. If we don’t protect our environment — our home — we are doomed to see its get worse. There is a lot each of us can and should do to make the planet more sustainable. Forty years after the first Earth Day, the world is in tough shape. Climate change is a great challenge, but a wonderful opportunity to build a healthy, prosperous, clean-energy economy. No matter your politics, your ideolo-

gy, your political persuasion, we can all agree that we have to do a better job of protecting the climate and the planet. Earth Day, officially observed today, is involving millions of people who are making personal commitments to the goals of the Earth Day organizers. What can you do? How about these suggestions from the Earth Day Network Web site: n When grocery shopping, bring your own cloth bags instead of using paper/plastic. n Recycle paper and plastic in addition to cans to help reduce the amount of waste in landfills. n Use a reusable water bottle. n Recycle your envelope from the bank and use the same one all year. n Use environmentally friendly cleaning products.

n Walk, drink more water, and take a shorter shower. n Eat salads without meat and drink water. n Walk to the store n Organize a clean-up in your community and pick up litter whenever you see it. n Pay your bills online instead of receiving bills in the mail. n Unplug your electronic devices when they are not in use. n Teachers, don’t make multiple copies of homework pages. Sevier County should be a leader in the green movement. It’s good for the environment and it makes a good impression on our guests. Hold your own observance of Earth Day, a small step toward a cleaner climate and making a difference in the community.

Political view

Public forum Rude treatment received when calling for Titanic information

Editor: I have a complaint about the new attraction in the Pigeon Forge area, The Titanic. I called about this attraction to find out what the rates are for someone who lives in Sevier County, as all the other attractions offer some sort of discount. Not only was I told there was none, but the attitude of the woman answering the phones was horrific and very rude. I was talking to some coworkers about this and they too, had a bad experience calling the Titanic. One called to get his wife season tickets as a surprise birthday present. When he called he found that they are not offering them for their first year here, but she was also very rude when talking about it and said it in a very rude way. I really hope that this is not how this new attraction is going to be. I really hope that it’s just one person and everyone there does not have this attitude. Renee Bond Sevierville

Rescue Squad criticized for situation with Joey Ledbetter Editor: To the members of the Sevier County Volunteer Rescue Squad: shame on you. I

absolutely cannot believe the situation with Joey Ledbetter. He goes and gets all certification needed, does the six-month trial period and you let a workplace quarrel determine who is on the squad? And not only that, but you leave an unfinished project at his home where his two youngest sons can get hurt? Who is going to finish it, George Washington? That is absolutely horrible. Are these really the people we want coming to aid a life-or-death emergency? I know I wouldn’t want them to. Josh Gidean Sevierville

Council of Trent publication still holding influence today

Editor: I would say there have been some wagging heads over the past several weeks from people in the Seymour/South Knox area as we read and saw all of the hoopla surrounding a Baptist church in Pigeon Forge distributing “The Death Cookie” and “Last Rites.” Following Standard Operating Procedure, the bishop and Father cited absolutely no scripture to refute anything stated by Chick Publications in either tract. This is because their church holds tradition and the opinions of the “church fathers” as high or higher than the scriptures. They also added that this literature has no place in today’s world and they are

saddened that these kinds of things are still distributed. If you really want to take a look at some “hate speech,” then purchase a copy of the Council of Trent (1545-1563) and read 126 curses pronounced on all Baptists and Protestants alike, and don’t give us any boloney about this council being absolved, old, or out of date. The contents of the Council of Trent have never been rescinded and, in fact, were affirmed by Pope John XXIII and Pope Paul VI. The current Pope Benedict XVI called the Council of Trent “the most important Catholic catechism” while he was still a cardinal. Pastor David M. Jeffers Bible Baptist Church Seymour

Competition for cable services a good thing for Sevier County

Editor: I recently read an article in your paper about AT&T bringing U-verse TV to Sevier County. It’s good to see that we finally have competition for cable services in our area. State Rep. Richard Montgomery and Sen. Doug Overbey are to be commended for supporting legislation to make this possible and for helping to create a pro-business environment for our county.” Phil Whaley Sevierville

Tree Board hosts Arbor Day event Sevierville’s annual Arbor Day Ceremony hosted by the Tree Board was held at City Park. Fifth-grade students from Sevierville Intermediate School led the Pledge of Allegiance. Bob Parker, director of parks and recreation, introduced Mayor Bryan Atchley, who read an Arbor Day proclamation. A representative from the Tennessee Division of Forestry presented the city with the 2009 Tree City USA flag for the 26th consecutive year. Atchley accepted the flag. Parker

recognized Zack Flynn, a fifth-grader at Sevierville Intermediate and winner of the Arbor Day poster contest. Atchley revealed the three new greenway signs created by Stephen Lyn Bales, marketing manager and naturalist at Ijams Nature Center in Knoxville. Bales, a Sevier County native, artist and author of the “Natural History of the Tennessee Valley,” reminisced about family reunions in the park when he was a boy and visiting the old Pawpaw tree located on an island near the picnic area.

The interruptive signs provide information and art on the flora and fauna along the greenway. Parker read the list of names for whom trees had been planted either in honor or in memory: Clyde McKinley McMahan, in honor of his 80th birthday; and in memory of Orval Ray Miller, Wayne Sharp, Harold and Mildred Tarwarter, James B.

Husband’s failing business worries wife



Baby Blues

Dear Annie: I have been married to “Archie” for 20 years. He used to be self-employed, but the business wasn’t going well, so he got a regular job. He worked for a few years, but didn’t like it and decided to go back into business for himself. He said if it didn’t work out, he would find employment elsewhere. Needless to say, his business is failing, and we are getting behind with our bills. I can only work part time due to health reasons. Archie has sent out a couple of job applications, but hasn’t heard anything yet. I want him to be more aggressive, whether it’s promoting his own business or making follow-up calls to places where he applied for jobs, but he won’t do it. In this economy, any job would be better than the little he’s doing now. Archie is a bit of a procrastinator, and things are not going to just fall into his lap. He considers it nagging if I ask about a job or remind him to make a call. This is having a negative effect on our marriage, because I’m worried about our finances and he doesn’t seem to care about his family. It’s like he has no pride. Am I wrong, or is he going through some kind of midlife crisis? -Betty Dear Betty: We don’t think pride is the issue. Is Archie depressed? Does he suffer from undiagnosed Attention Deficit Disorder? Instead of pushing him to be more aggressive, which only annoys him, work on the underlying causes of his inertia. Suggest he see his

doctor. Ask how you can help him. See whether a teamwork approach improves the situation. Dear Annie: Several years ago, Ann Landers printed a poem about our planet, written by a young girl. I think it’s time it was printed again. Will you do it in honor of Earth Day? -- Boston Gal Dear Boston: With pleasure. It was written by Misha Mayr, then age 9, of El Paso, Texas: I am the ill earth. People have cut down the trees, which are my lungs. They have polluted the air, which is my brain. They have polluted the streams, which are my blood vessels. They have polluted the oceans, which are the chambers of my heart. My wrath has gotten gigantic. My wrath is hurricanes and tornadoes. I am the ill earth. If people trash me, I will die, and so will they. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Little Sister,” whose parents give her money for necessities and her older sibling resents it. I would like to tell the other side of the story. My wife and I are in our early 50s, and her parents are also wealthy. We have always been self-supporting and have never asked them for a

dime. My 54-year-old brother-in-law, however, has never supported himself. Everything has been given to him. His parents bought him his house and the car he drives. They pay all his bills and give him $2,000 a month for spending cash. This has never been a jealousy issue. It is injustice. We used to try to talk to my in-laws and explain that these handouts were not helping anyone. We were told he had “special needs” and to mind our own business. My advice to “Little Sister” is to grow up and take responsibility for her own actions, or in 40 years, she will be in the same boat as my brother-in-law. -- Resent Injustice Dear Resent: In all fairness, some children need help at various times in life, and it is perfectly OK for parents to lend a hand. The problems arise when the needy child never becomes self-supporting and, over time, the other siblings feel less important and less loved. Parents need to understand and acknowledge this.

Irwin kicked off WS Senators By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer

Ben Roethlisberger

Clock strikes 12 for Big Ben 7 out 6 games By BARRY WILNER AP Football Writer NEW YORK — Pittsburgh Steelers quarterback Ben Roethlisberger was suspended for six games without pay Wednesday for violating the NFL’s personal conduct policy and ordered to undergo behavioral evaluation. Commissioner Roger Goodell handed down the See BIG BEN, Page B2

MORRISTOWN — Samuel Dalton Irwin, the person recently accused of and arrested for an assault with a baseball bat on his college roommate and former Pigeon Forge Tigers All-State baseball player, is no longer a member of the Walters State Senators baseball team. “At this point, Dalton Irwin has been dismissed from the Senators baseball team,” states a Walters State release on Wednesday. Irwin, a Knoxville Catholic graduate, was arrested last week in Anderson County in connection with an alleged aggravated domestic assault charge in Morristown perpetrated against former Pigeon Forge All-State baseball player Adam Guinn. Both players were freshmen with the Senators baseball team. The arrest came six days after the alleged assault on Guinn occurred. The offense report taken on April 8 states that the suspect began breaking things in the shared apartment after becoming upset about a Facebook post. “The victim then asked

the suspect to stop (breaking things), and the suspect told him to shut up,” states the report. “The victim stated that he told the suspect to make him shut up. “The suspect then went to a closet and grabbed a wooden baseball bat and took a full swing at the victim, hitting him in the left arm.” Following the incident, Irwin alledgedly fled the scene. Irwin was released from jail on a $5,000 bond at 4 a.m. last Thursday. “The college is conducting its own internal investigation into the matter,” states the Walters State release. “The college will be assisting Adam Guinn to help him complete his spring semester coursework, and looks forward to his full recovery and return to the baseball team next season.” Guinn had surgery on Thursday to repair extensive bone damage in his left arm. According to his Facebook page, it was a success. “Surgery went well,” Guinn posted the same day. “Just sittin’ ‘round the house now, waitin’ on friends to come.”

County prep soccer teams pick up recent victories By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — The Sevier County Smoky Bears soccer team won their way into a shot at first place in the IMAC this Friday. By winning Tuesday night over Jefferson County 2-1, the Bears (10-2, 3-1 in District 2-AA) earned themselves a chance at the IMAC’s soccer leader, South-Doyle, on Friday night. With a win over the Cherokees, Sevier County would move into

first place with the tiebreaker over S-D. “It was a big win for us, a big win,” SCHS head coach Bryan Atchley said following the team’s Tuesday win over the Patriots. “The kids did a good job tonight recognizing what they were trying to do to us and then reacting.” Freshman Nelson Hernandez got the Bears on the scoreboard first, netting a goal on an assist from senior Thomas Garreau just about five minutes into the action.

Neither team scored for the rest of the first half. Finally, about midway through the second half, Jefferson County caught a break. “Dominic (Kendall, the Bears’ goalie) made a really nice save, but the ball popped out and they got a rebound goal,” Atchley said. That knotted the score at 1-1, but the Bears weren’t going down like that. With just under 10 minutes left on the game clock, sophomore for-

ward Erick Flores found Garreau on a corner, and the senior volleyed it perfectly into the net for what would prove to be the game-winning goal. Following the team’s match-up with SouthDoyle on Friday, they’ll face another big test on Thursday, April 29, when Seymour comes to town.

SCHS track and field compete at the Vol Track Classic KNOXVILLE — The Sevier County High School boys’ and girls’ track teams spent the weekend of the 16th at the University of Tennessee competing in one of the Southeast’s top track and field meets, the 47th annual Volunteer Track Classic. Highlights for the local contenders came on the first night of competition. Senior distance runner Alex McCandless ran the 2000-meter steeplechase, and after finishing third in the event two years ago and runner up last year, McCandless took another step forward this year and brought home the champions plaque. He took the lead about 1000 meters into the race and went on to complete the event without a serious challenge from another competitor. He ran the race in 6:27.27, besting second place by 5.03 seconds. McCandless is believed to be the first champion in Smoky Bears school history at the Vol Classic. The SCHS boys’ relay team of Kel McCarter, Brett Pippin, Dustin Hurst and Brandon White took an impressive fifth place out of 36 teams in the 4x200meter relay with a time of 1:31.31, immediately following the McCandless win. To cap the night of high-

lights, the Bearettes distance medley relay team of Maryann Jackson, Kaycee Dixon, Lisa Burke and Hannah Pelham broke the 1985 SCHS school record previously held by school running legend Sabrina Keeton, Betsy Barnes Warren, Jackie Howard Hounshell and Mary Newman. The previous mark of 14:21.1 had stood for 25 years before the current Bearettes team broke it by nearly 10 seconds with a time of 14:11.77. “That was one our goals for this meet,” said SCHS distance coach Eddie McCandless. “And the girls really came through. “They all hit their marks, but the relay rests on the shoulders of the miler who runs the longest leg. Hannah had a great race. They all did.” Other Smoky Bears point producers were Jeremiah Foster and Kel McCarter, arguably the best one-two hurdle combination in the state. Foster finished seventh in the 300-meter hurdles with a 40.34 time, besting McCarter’s 41.04 time by one race position. The Smoky Bears placed 18th out of 45 teams who scored points in the meet. Several teams did not score. Unfortunately for the See SCHS, Page B3

NFL draft goes for glitz as it moves to prime time TV By RACHEL COHEN AP Sports Writer NEW YORK — Offensive tackles and tight ends used to hitting the green artificial turf will make their entrance on the red carpet. Tennessee defensive tackle Dan Williams will be ready for that big, Oscarlike question: “Who are you wearing?” The NFL is going for glitz over the blitz as it moves its draft to prime time Thursday. The first round now has its own day on the most popular night for watching TV, and the players are the stars of the show. More players have been invited to see their fate revealed in front of a national audience, and there will be more cameras to document the joy of hearing their name called — or the distress of sliding down to a lesser pick. “Hopefully I’m not in there that long for the cameras to be on me, because it’s going to start to get hot,” said Georgia Tech defensive end Derrick Morgan, who’s projected as a top-10 pick. NFL officials are comfort-

punishment a week after prosecutors decided not to charge Roethlisberger in a case involving a 20-year-old college student who accused him of sexually assaulting her in a Georgia nightclub in March. Goodell said the league’s conduct policy gave him the right to impose discipline regardless of whether he broke the law. “I recognize that the allegations in Georgia were disputed and that they did not result in criminal charges being filed against you,” he said in his letter to the two-time Super Bowl winner, a six-year veteran. “My decision today is not based on a finding that you violated Georgia law, or on a conclusion that differs from that of the local prosecutor. That said, you are held to a higher standard as an NFL player, and there is nothing about your conduct in Milledgeville that can remotely be described as admirable, responsible, or consistent with either the values of the league or the expectations of our fans.” Roethlisberger must undergo a “comprehensive behavioral evaluation by medical professionals” and may not attend any team offseason activities until that evaluation is completed. The suspension could be reduced to four games for good behavior. Sitting out all six games would cost him an estimated $2.8 million. Before acting, Goodell said he interviewed Roethlisberger on April 13 and talked to current and former players and the players’ union. He also reviewed information from the Georgia Bureau of Investigation and Milledgeville police and talked privately with Georgia district attorney Fred Bright. In addition, Goodell said he listened to recommendations from the quarterback’s representatives and took into account information learned by the NFL office regarding the alleged assault. “Your conduct raises sufficient concerns that I believe effective intervention now is the best step for your personal and professional welfare,” Goodell said in the letter. “In your six years in the NFL, you have first thrilled and now disappointed a great many people. I urge you to take full advantage of this opportunity to get your life and career back on track.” Roethlisberger also is being sued by a woman who accused him of raping her at a Lake Tahoe hotel-casino in 2008. He denied the allegation and wasn’t charged. Goodell has aggressively dealt with players who violated the personal conduct policy throughout his 3 1/2 years as commissioner. He banned Adam “Pacman” Jones for one year, and suspended Tank Johnson and Chris Henry eight games each in 2007. Last year, Michael Vick was suspended for six games, later shortened to two games, for his role in a dogfighting ring. Vick also spent 18 months in jail.

able comparing the event to the Oscars or a big-budget movie premiere, as the league under commissioner Roger Goodell grows more aggressive in marketing an already wildly popular sport. Sixteen players have been invited to attend, up from nine last year. More invited players and more atten-

tion mean more pressure on the draftees to make a fashion statement worthy of the Academy Awards, where celebrities are breathlessly asked on the red carpet which designer’s clothes they are wearing. Morgan has five or six suits to choose from, including one he received after a fitting Tuesday at the Sean

John store in Manhattan. “Everyone is giving me suits,” he said. “I’ve got light suits, dark suits.” Williams’ former Vols teammate, safety Eric Berry, picked out a gray suit with the help of a stylist. “I wanted to get some type of expert,” he said. “I let her do what she does.” None of the players will be

forced to endure the drama of slipping out of the first round live in prime time. The NFL is allowing them to leave any time they want after they walk the red carpet. ESPN senior coordinating producer Jay Rothman said the network’s first-round coverage will focus on the human drama of the play-

ers, with the backdrop of the always-lively crowd at Radio City Music Hall. The indepth analysis by the talking heads can wait for the final rounds Saturday. The first round starts at 7:30 p.m. EDT on Thursday. Rounds 2-3 begin at 6 p.m. Friday, with the last four rounds taking place Saturday.

Bearettes, there were no point producers in a meet that saw several current No.1 times in the nation posted in some girls’ events. Madison Pickel had a strong showing in the 400-meter dash, coming up just three places short of the finals with an 11th out of 73 finishers with a time of 1:02.92. The SCHS girls’ 4x400meter relay team of Kaycee Dixon, Brittany Lister, Kelsey Blankenship and Courtney Kirby ran a season best 4:26.36, and the 4x800-meter relay team of Pelham, Burke, Jackson and Kirby also ran a season best time of 10:46.32. Although the top places weren’t there, the team ran well and had a boost from the return of Hailey Tackett to the sprint relays. The Smoky Bears next compete in the Dan Crowe Relays at Dobyns-Bennett High School this Friday.
