SEVIERVILLE — Anthony Atkins’ uncle and a close friend told Judge Dwight Stokes on Friday that Atkins admitted to them he killed Jeff Harlan King Sr. after King threatened him with a knife, then Atkins allegedly tried to burn and bury the body. That gave Stokes enough to send Atkins’ case on to the grand jury, which also must find probable cause for the charges before the case is set for trial. Atkins is

“He said, ‘You wouldn’t believe what fire does to a human body.’’’ — Witness Shannon Parton

charged with first-degree murder of King, whose body was found in late April. It was Atkins’ friend, Shannon Parton, who first told detectives he believed King had been murdered, according to testimony

during Friday’s preliminary hearing. Parton testified that Atkins claimed King came at him with a knife during a dispute, then Atkins struck King with a woodsplitting tool, killing him. Parton said Atkins told him about burning the body and burying it afterward. “He said, ‘You wouldn’t believe what fire does to a human body,’’’ Curt Habraken/The Mountain Press Parton testified from the witness Anthony C.

76-year-old was killed on May 7 By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — Mary Jo Miller’s killers went to her home expecting to get as much as $1,000 in cash from her and instead wound up splitting $50 among the three of them, a witness said Friday. Authorities have charged Steven Weaver, Theodore Ratliff and Shannon Rodney Baltimore, all of Knoxville, with killing the 76-yearold Miller May 7 in her Day Drive home in north Sevier County. Weaver waived his right to a preliminary hearing Friday, and Baltimore’s is set for June 4. Judge Dwight Stokes bound Ratliff’s case over to the grand jury Friday after a preliminary hearing that lasted more than 90 minutes in General Sessions Court. Weaver’s niece, Amy Brown, testified she drove the three men to Miller’s home because Weaver said he needed one of them to help him fix Miller’s lawn mower, which he had broken earlier. While she was driving them — with her 3-year-old daughter in the car — the men began talking about plans to rob the woman. When they emerged

Fast track to helping kids Speedpark’s home office donates to children’s home

By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer

By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — PARC Management CEO Randy Drew and other executives visited its NASCAR SpeedPark on Friday to present a $1,500 check to the Smoky Mountain Children’s Home for the Cherish the Child Foundation. “We believe the wellness of children is the barometer of health in communities,” Drew said. “Wellness includes the mind, the body and the spirit, and we support education, health and faith-based nonprofit organizations.” PARC Management LLC is a family entertainment provider with 25

strengthen families and children in the communities served by PARC Management parks. All team members are encouraged to be involved in their communities with the foundation helping to facilitate that action. Drew said that PARC chooses a nonprofit foundation each year to assist.

Col. Stephen Holbert plans to deliver more than the traditional Memorial Day’s message during Monday’s ceremony at the Sevier County Courthouse. “Americans need to do more than just honor the past,” said Holbert, a U.S. Air Force veteran and Sevier County native. “We need to be responsible citizens. We need to be aware of what’s going on in our country and vote to place the right people in office. Why do we assume that someone else will take care of these things?” Holbert is a member of Veterans of Foreign Wars Post 10025 and a member and past commander of American Legion Post 104. He flew the C-123 while serving in Vietnam, in Operation Urgent Fury in Grenada, Operation Just Cause in Panama and Operation Desert Storm during the Gulf War. His military awards and decorations include The Distinguished Flying Cross, five air medals, two Meritorius Service Medals, Air Force Commendation Medal, nine Vietnam Service medals and the Southwest Asia Service Medal.

Three arrested for aggravated assault, related charges

Animal cruelty case headed for grand jury

Submitted report

By JEFF FARRELL The Mountain Press SEVIERVILLE — Judge Dwight Stokes sent animal cruelty charges on to the grand jury Friday for one of two men who allegedly set several live kittens on fire. Christopher Schneider, of 3535 Walking Horse Lane, faces five counts of aggravated cruelty to animals. He waived his right to a preliminary hearing Friday, but public defender Kimberly Haas asked Stokes to reduce his bond from $25,000 to $12,500. She told Stokes that Schneider has served in the military, had no prior convictions and has family living in this area, arguing he was not a risk to flee. Stokes declined, saying that the bond properly reflected the gravity of the charges against Schneider. Authorities allegedly learned of the activities after someone sent the Sevier County Humane Society video of the actions that had been circulated by text messages. Aaron S. Kunak, of 1869 Sunnydale Drive, was also charged in the crime. n jfarrell@themountainpress.com

Man arrested after being caught in home Submitted report A Sevier County man has been arrested after a homeowner caught the suspect in his home on Lindsey Drive Thursday. Sheriff Ron Seals said the homeowner arrived and found his front door partially opened. The homeowner Matthews went inside and got a weapon, then encountered a man who jumped out of a second story window and fled on foot. The homeowner called 911 and officers arrived and talked to several neighbors who saw the suspect fleeing the area. Information from the witnesses led officers to a nearby home at 1903 Douglas Dam Road where the suspect was identified and taken into custody without incident. Charged with aggravated burglary is Donnie Travis Matthews, 28, of 1903 Douglas Dam Road. He was arraigned before a magistrate and a $5,000 bond set. A June 23 hearing date has been scheduled. Anyone with information is asked to call Detective James Breeden at 4281899.

The Civilian Conservation Corps era building at Clingmans Dome is being renovated into a new visitor contact station.

Park seeks volunteers to man visitor station Submitted Report Great Smoky Mountains National Park is recruiting volunteers to help staff a new visitor contact station at Clingmans Dome when it opens on Saturday, June 19. The building that served as a comfort station, constructed by the Civilian Conservation Corps, is being renovated and converted into a seasonal information center that will also include a bookstore/sales area managed by Great Smoky Mountains Association. The center sits at an elevation of 6,300 feet and will be a point source of information on the national park, in general, and on this high elevation spruce-fir ecosystem in particular. Volunteers are needed to assist in educating visitors about the park and providing recreational and trip

planning information and directions to other destinations. “In the past, visitors to this popular destination did not have a chance to obtain information on their high elevation visit or have questions answered, including the most asked, ‘What caused the trees to die?’” said Park Superintendent Dale Ditmanson. “Now, with the help of volunteers staffing the center, visitors can inquire and learn about the stands of dead trees caused by the nonnative insect, the balsam woolly adelgid.” Many other helpful services will be available, including the ability to purchase guides and maps, outdoor apparel, and other products sold by the Great Smoky Mountains Association. “The Association is a significant partner with the Park and is involved

In Memoriam

Frank Babington Bird

Frank Babington Bird, age 93, of Maryville, passed away Tuesday, May 25, 2010, at the family home. Born March 12, 1917, in Athens, TN, he was the youngest child of J.T. and Emily Bird. As the son of a Methodist minister, the family lived in several areas of East Tennessee including Maryville. He was preceded in death by his parents; sisters, Ruth and Grace; brother, Merrill; and daughter, Patsy. His first wife Agnes, with whom he practiced law, died in 1994. He leaves his wife Martha; her daughter, Charlotte (Art) Ellis; granddaughter, Kara; nieces, Marilyn (Stu) Hammond and Julia (Robert) Cooper; nephew, Jim (Becky) Bird; a great nephew and several great nieces. He also leaves his brother-in-law, Bob (Carol) Thornton, and sister-in-law, Elizabeth Thornton, all of Texas. Mr. Bird graduated from Central High School in Knoxville and earned his law degree from UT in 1941. After serving in the Army Air Corps during World War II, he opened his office in Maryville in 1946. In the course of his career he practiced with several attorneys, the last being Mr. Lee Kull. At the time of his death, he was the oldest practicing attorney in Blount County. Mr. Bird was a member of the Maryville Optimist Club and American Legion Post 13 and will be remembered for his many contributions to Maryville and Blount County. He founded “Boys and Girls County Day,” “More Blount Jobs,” and was the moving force behind the establishment of the Blount County Industrial Board, serving as its attorney for thirty years. He was an avid supporter of Maryville College, UT, Blount Memorial Hospital, and the Blount County Library. The family wishes to express thanks to Dr. John Ingram, III; his caregivers, Virginia, Dolly, Angela, Autumn, and Caleb; and to his longtime assistant and friend, Pat Martin. A memorial service will be held 1 p.m. Saturday, May 29, 2010, at Miller Funeral Home Magnolia Chapel. The family will receive friends from 11 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the funeral home.

the maul and spun with it in his hands, striking King in the head and killing him. “I was just blown away,” Bohanon said. “I could not accept it.” Both men testified Atkins had been spending a lot of time with King, but Atkins was also concerned because he thought King had made threats against Atkins’

grandmother and had said he would confront King over it. King may also have been Atkins’ father. Detective Stephanie McClure mentioned on the stand that, before he asked for an attorney, Atkins said King had told him he could be his biological father.

Previous foundations have included the film “Letters to God,” in which PARC sponsored all of its music and the proceeds benefitting children’s cancer research. It has also contributed to Give Kids the World, a park for terminally ill children. Local artist Paul Murray and Tim Nuckels, Smoky Mountain Children’s Home assistant director, presented Drew with a portrait by Murray of a young girl clutching a stuffed bunny. “In celebrating the 90th anniversary of the children’s home, we were looking for an iconic image that represents the hearts of children,” Nuckels said. “When I first saw the picture, I said, ‘I’ve seen this girl,’ This is the face of the Smoky Mountain Children’s Home. “Thank you so much for this incredible partnership,” he told Drew. “We’re so thankful that God has connected us.”

sion at Parton’s house, Atkins indicated he planned to tell authorities he was with Parton at the time of the murder, and left some items with Parton that allegedly came from King’s house. Parton said he knew he

couldn’t be part of that, and went to the Sevier County Sheriff’s Office the next morning. “I was kind of numb during the conversation,” he said. Atkins’ uncle, Ted Bohanon, said Atkins also told him about the incident, saying that he had tried to run when King lunged at him with a knife, then grabbed

testified she heard a pop that sounded like a gunshot, but she waited until they returned to the car. She said she drove the men where they ordered her to go, including to buy gas and food and throw away the purse they were carrying when they emerged. Weaver knew Miller well, Brown said, and Miller would sometimes pay the men to do work around her home. Weaver even drove her to some doctors’ appointments, Brown said. It was Weaver who told the other two men that Miller often had large amounts of money on her, and that she was taking OxyContin for pain related to her cancer. She had her prescriptions refilled on May 5, two days before the men went to her home, Brown said. Brown never mentioned if they came back to the car with any pills, but said they were arguing about the money when they got back in her van. Ratliff was carrying the purse, she said, and it emerged that they’d gotten $50. “Shannon said, ‘I can’t believe we did this for $50,’” Brown testified. Ratliff has spent all but the last year of his adult life in prison for another murder involving an elderly victim. When he was 17 he was convicted of murdering a woman in Scott County who had been set to testify him in 1976. He was given a life sentence, but was paroled last year.

PROVO, Utah — Gary Coleman, the adorable, pintsized child star of the smash 1970s TV sitcom “Diff’rent Strokes” who spent the rest of his life struggling on Hollywood’s D-list, died Friday after suffering a brain hemorrhage. He was 42. Coleman was taken off life support and died with family and friends at his side, Utah Valley Regional Medical Center spokeswoman Janet Frank said. He suffered the brain hemorrhage Wednesday at his Santaquin home, 55 miles south of Salt Lake City. Frank said Coleman was hospitalized because of an accident at the home, but she had no further details. Coleman’s family, in a statement read by his brother-inlaw Shawn Price, said information would be released shortly about his death. Best remembered for “Diff’rent Strokes” character Arnold Jackson and his “Whatchu talkin’ ’bout?” catchphrase, Coleman chafed at his permanent association with the show

but also tried to capitalize on it through reality shows and other TV appearances. His adult life was marked with legal, financial and health troubles, suicide attempts and even a 2003 run for California governor. “I want to escape that legacy of Arnold Jackson,” he told The New York Times during his gubernatorial run. “I’m someone more. It would be nice if the world thought of me as something more.” A statement from the family said he was conscious and lucid until midday Thursday, when his condition worsened and he slipped into unconsciousness. Coleman was then placed on life support. “It’s unfortunate. It’s a sad day,” said Todd Bridges, who played Coleman’s older brother, Willis, on “Diff’rent Strokes.” “Diff’rent Strokes” debuted on NBC in 1978 and drew most of its laughs from Coleman, then a tiny 10-yearold with sparkling eyes and perfect comic timing. He played the younger

Race and class relations became topics on the show as much as the typical trials of growing up. “He was the reason we were such a big hit,” costar Charlotte Rae, who played the family’s housekeeper on the show, said in an e-mail. “He was the centerpiece and we all surrounded him. He was absolutely enchanting,

adorable, funny and filled with joy which he spread around to millions of people all over the world.” Coleman’s family thanked fans for their continued support. “Thousands of e-mails have poured into the hospital. This is so comforting to the family to know how beloved he still is,” Price said. “Diff’rent Strokes” lasted six seasons on NBC and two on ABC; it lives on thanks to DVDs and YouTube.

House vote advances end to ban on gays in military WASHINGTON (AP) — The House on Friday passed a defense bill that paves the way for gays to serve openly in the military for the first time, but advocates on both sides geared up for a fight in the Senate. Normally, defense bills pass by wider margins than Friday’s 229-186 vote, but many Republicans and a few conservative Democrats said they would vote against it because of the gay ban, which was added to the $700 billion bill in a 234-194 vote late Thursday. House approval of the “don’t ask, don’t tell” repeal was a victory for President Barack Obama, who has pledged to change the policy, and for gay rights groups, who have made it their top priority this year. The bill would give the Pentagon the rest of the year to study the issue before the repeal would take effect. Defense Secretary Robert

Gates appealed to the military Friday not to be distracted by the political debate over gays in uniform. In an unusual direct address to troops, Gates said he wanted to assure them that their views on the divisive question still matter. The Senate is expected to take up the defense bill this summer. Supporters likely will need the votes of 60 of the 100 senators to prevent opponents from blocking it. And while supportive overall, the White House on Thursday issued a veto

threat because the House Fighter. version includes $485 milGates has sought to elimilion for an alternative engine nate the second engine profor the new F-35 Joint Strike gram, saying it is wasteful.

environmental and economic disaster could also engulf his presidency, Obama has stepped up his public appearances this week to demonstrate that he is engaged. He held a rare White House news conference on Thursday, focusing almost entirely on the spill. And Friday, he flew to the coast for an inspection tour and meetings that lasted about four hours — his second visit in the 39 days of the crisis. He noted that all may not go well in such a massive, unprecedented undertaking. Mistakes are possible, Obama said. But a lack of urgency about plugging the leak and restoring the region is not, the president declared. “There are not going to be silver bullets or a lot of perfect answers for some of the challenges that we face,” he said in front of an incongruously pristine backdrop of sparkling blue water with dolphins, fish and seabirds frequently spotted. “But we’re going to keep at this every day.” Obama made an unqualified promise to coast residents reminiscent of previous presidents speaking after disasters — such as George W. Bush after Hurricane Katrina in 2005.

GRAND ISLE, La. (AP) — Kneeling to pick up tar balls on an oil-fouled beach and listening to “heartbreaking stories” of loss, President Barack Obama personally confronted the spreading damage wrought by the crude gushing into the Gulf of Mexico — and the bitter anger that’s rising onshore. “What can he really do?” said Billy Ward, a developer who comes to his beach house here every weekend and, like many other locals, had little positive to say about Obama’s trip to the beleaguered region on Friday. “If he wants to do something, let him get out there and pump some mud and cement into that hole. Just fix it. Help us.” BP PLC, even less popular here, kept up its efforts to “just fix it,” using its “top kill” procedure to try to stop the deep oil well leak by pumping in heavy mud. If it doesn’t work, something BP says will be known within a couple of days, Obama’s own problems will only compound. He said he understands people “want it made right” and that their frustration won’t fade until the oil is stopped and cleaned up. “It’s an assault on our shores, on our people, on the regional economy and on communities like this one,” the president said from this small barrier island town threatened by what is now established as the largest oil spill in American history. “People are watching their livelihoods wash up on the beach.” A BP drilling rig in the Gulf of Mexico exploded on April 20, killing 11 workers and beginning to send millions of gallons of oil spewing into the water. That oil is now beginning to foul beaches, kill wildlife and cripple the tourism and fishing industries on which this area depends. With the crude still flowing freely, criticism has been increasingly aimed at Obama and his administration. Amid concern that the

Murder suspect released in error NASHVILLE (AP) — A Nashville man being held on a murder charge remained on the loose after being mistakenly released and not missed for 11 days. The Davidson County Sheriff’s Office said Finis Lewis, 32, was not yet back in custody Friday morning. Sheriff Daron Hall said his department erred in releasing Lewis on May 14 and not realizing he was gone until May 25. Hall told The Tennessean his depart-

ment acknowledges something went wrong in the booking/releasing process. “It’s obviously something internal,” Hall said. Lewis had been held in jail since being transferred from state prison on Oct. 15, 2009, to await trial on charges in the killing of Kenneth Crawley and an attempted murder charge in another case. When prosecutors dropped the lesser charge, jailers released Lewis. Crawley was fatally shot

I think it’s a police call whether they want to roll out that information.” A telephone message was left Friday for Paul Walwyn, Lewis’ attorney. The search continued for Lewis and Hall said his agency was aiding in the manhunt. “He surely and clearly has the capability of harming people, and we need him back where he should be,” Hall said.

commentary

Lohan’s clock still ticking on her future Back in the late 1960s, it seemed like every few weeks another rock star would drop dead. The big three — Janis Joplin, Jimi Hendrix and Jim Morrison of the Doors — all died in their 20s from alcohol- and drugrelated causes. Even bigger names like Elvis Presley and Marilyn Monroe abused themselves into early deaths. Lately, Michael Jackson continued the tradition, although he made it to age 50. I’ve always wondered whether, back in the Woodstock days, the folks who were applauding obviously intoxicated stars on stage ever thought about that connection when the musicians bit the dust. I mean, many concerts were simply drug- and alcoholfueled free-for-alls, and it’s still that way today. As a young reporter, I remember being stationed in the medical tent at a Rolling Stones concert in 1979. Hundreds of young people were treated for gross intoxication. Now we have a young actress named Lindsay Lohan who apparently is out of control. A former childhood star, her sad drama is being played out in the worldwide press. This week, a Los Angeles judge ordered Lohan to wear an alcohol-monitoring bracelet and submit to drug testing. This, because she was convicted of driving under the influence and possession of cocaine. Lindsay Lohan is 23. If you believe the celebrity press, Lohan has been used by a number of people for a long time. At age 11, she began to have success in a series of family films like “The Parent Trap” and, subsequently, “Freaky Friday.” Her parents profited from her movie fees even as the family dissolved during a nasty divorce action. Lohan then went on to have a number of public affairs with both men and women, all the while looking lost and confused. But after age 18 in America, you are pretty much free to destroy yourself. Obviously, Judge Marsha Revel is trying to prevent that by holding the actress accountable for her substance intake, but there’s only so much the justice system can do. So who will save Lindsay Lohan? If history is any indicator, the answer is no one. Elvis had a big entourage around him, and so did Michael Jackson. Both men perished with doctors actually assisting them. Truthfully, the only person who can save Lohan is Lohan. Millions of American parents anguish over the sons and daughters who are caught in the vicious cycle of addiction. Therapy, rehab, interventions — all have little chance of success unless the addicted person uses their free will to fight their disease. Chances are Lohan has been presented with that fact. And even though her life is on constant display, nobody really knows what the young woman truly wants. Some people want to die and slowly kill themselves. That is a brutal thing to watch. Some people finally wise up and save themselves. That redemption gives us hope. We should all pray for this woman, Lindsay Lohan. Her clock is ticking. — Veteran TV news anchor Bill O Reilly is host of the Fox News show “The O Reilly Factor” and author of the book “Who’s Looking Out For You? Distributed by Creators Syndicate.

T H REE C H EER S Teaching ‘little victories’ earns Sams a big award

Deborah Sams, a teacher at Sevierville Primary School, says, “It’s the little victories every day with the students” that count. Just the other day, though, Sams scored a big victory when she won a statewide award for which she didn’t even know she had been nominated. Today, Sams stands as the reigning Tennessee Teacher of English to Speakers of Other Languages. There was stiff criteria for even being nominated — a high level of commitment, dedication, innovation and creativity in instructional strategies; an involvement in service activities, volunteer and civic work that has served the ESL field; and leadership activities and other awards in the ESL field. For 18 years, Sams taught high school Spanish and says she loved it. Longing to do branch out, she went back to school, earning a master’s in ESL from Carson-Newman and a doctorate from Indiana University of Pennsylvania. Our non-English speaking students have benefited from this unique individual in a unique job.

Motorcyclists play loud, proud tribute to veterans

Ron Giddis has fought in the trenches. The Vietnam veteran knows first-hand what it’s like to see buddies die on the battlefield. He won’t forget. And he doesn’t want America to forget, either. That’s why he and wife Sandy have been leaders, not followers, on Memorial Day weekend. From an idea planted a decade ago while driving home from an observance in Washington, D.C., Smoky Mountain Thunder Memorial Ride No. 10 has emerged. It will feature several hundred motorcycle enthusiasts revving up their bikes “to pay tribute to our fallen comrades from all wars and conflicts past and present.” The event begins at 10 a.m. Sunday at the courthouse. There will be music, the Tennessee Helping Hearts Dance team and an exhibit by the American Eagle Foundation. At 11, bikers will ride down Dolly Parton Parkway toward Newport, ending in Grainger County.

High school athletes take final bow of year

The school year has come to a close, but for many athletes their seasons went right to the wire, including the Pigeon Forge baseball team and 14 tracksters who participated in Murfreesboro in the BlueCross Spring Fling. Pigeon Forge’s baseball team didn’t repeat its Final Four performance of a year ago, but finished 30-7 and went to sub-state. Pitchers Bret Gallinhugh and Justin Carter signed college scholarships. Thirteen Sevier County High athletes went to Murfreesboro: Alexis Conner, Hayley Fox, Madison Pickel, Jeremiah Foster, Nathan Hays, Dustin Hurst, Mikey Hutton, Alex McCandless, Kel McCarter, Brett Pippin, Bryce Whaley, Jordan Whaley and Brandon White.

Editor: Sevier County residents, please be very careful if you are thinking of renting property to anyone or you could be the one living under a bridge. My brother was sympathetic with a young couple who needed a place to rent and let them move into a house next door to him. The rent was to be far below the going rate, and he left the electricity in his name to save them a deposit. Well, they didn’t pay either and when asked to move out they called the police on him. To get these people out of his house he must pay over $100 to get an eviction notice and give them another 30 days of free rent and utilities. My brother is on disability and because of having to pay two electric bills is behind on most of his bills. So, is this the real meaning of justice

NCAA: 8 violations in UConn men’s basketball

Many early entries will likely go undrafted By JOHN MARSHALL AP Basketball Writer

By PAT EATON-ROBB Associated Press Writer STORRS, Conn. — Connecticut coach Jim Calhoun and the men’s basketball program he took from obscurity to national titles have been accused of eight major NCAA infractions, with investigators citing hundreds of improper calls and texts from UConn staff to recruits. The school released a notice from the NCAA on Friday that lays out the allegations against the Hall-of-Fame coach, his staff and the school. Besides the calls and texts, the accusations include giving recruits improper benefits and improperly distributing free tickets to high school coaches and others. Calhoun is cited for failing to promote an atmosphere of compliance. “It’s not exactly, certainly anywhere near the high point of my career, as a matter of fact it’s certainly one of the lowest points at any time that you are accused of doing something,” said Calhoun, who has led the Huskies since 1986 and taken them to the Final Four three times. “It’s a very serious matter.” Athletic director Jeff Hathaway offered support for Calhoun and defended the university. “Let me be clear,” he said. “The University of Connecticut is fully committed to NCAA rules compliance and takes this matter very seriously. With regard to coach Calhoun, he personally has a long-standing demonstrated commitment to NCAA rules compliance.” The allegations come at the end of a 15-month investigation into the recruiting of former player Nate Miles, who was expelled from UConn in October 2008 without ever playing a game for the Huskies. He was charged with violating a restraining order in a case involving a woman who claimed he assaulted her. The NCAA alleges 160 impermissible telephone calls and at least 191 impermissible text See UCONN, Page A9

Sevier County hurdler Jeremiah Foster took the state championship in the 300-meter hurdles Friday night at the Blue Cross Spring Fling in Murfreesboro. He also finished third in the 110-hurdles (pictured here). PREP TRACK AND FIELD CHAMPIONSHIPS

Foster runs, jumps his way to state title in 300 hurdles By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer MURFREESBORO — After working for it his entire prep track career, Sevier County High School Smoky Bears senior Jeremiah Foster finally earned state gold in the final high school race of his life on Friday night. “It’s great, and I’m speechless,” said Foster, seconds after learning that he had indeed won the 300-meter hurdles state championship event at Dean A. Hayes Middle Tennessee State University Track and Soccer Stadium in Murfreesboro. “I worked so hard to get to this point, and I couldn’t have done it without all the coaches pushing me hard every day. “They’ve been working us every day ... just getting our speed and endurance up, and it’s finally paid off. I’ve been dreaming about this day since my sophomore year, and it’s finally come and it feels so good.”

Foster finished third earlier in the day in the 110-meter hurdles with a time of 15.24, narrowly missing second in that event by 0.01 seconds. Although the bronze was nice, Foster said he felt the pressure to earn gold in the 300 hurdles immediately following the 110 hurdles event. “I won second in it last year, and I knew coming in that I was ranked fourth (on Friday in the 300 hurdles),” said Foster. “But the top four qualifying times were backto-back-to-back-to-back, and I knew I had a chance to do this, win state.” On top of earning gold, Foster broke an SCHS 300meter hurdles record set by 2004 SCHS graduate Tyler Woodruff, breaking the old mark by 0.62 seconds with a 38.57 on Friday. “I got the school record too, and that just tops it all off,” said Foster.

KANSAS CITY, Mo. — Kalin Lucas’ rehab from a torn Achilles’ tendon was ahead of schedule, enough that he’d likely be ready for the start of NBA training camp. His stock was still high despite the injury, putting him among the nation’s best guards. Lucas just couldn’t do it. Couldn’t enter his name in the NBA draft. He wanted to come back to Michigan State for a chance to finish what he couldn’t at the past two NCAA tournaments. The decision makes Lucas an anomaly. Fueled by the get-rich-now attitude and uncertainty about the NBA’s labor situation, a record wave of college hoops players have decided to leave school early in hopes of getting paid. For some, like Kentucky’s John Wall and Ohio State’s Evan Turner, it’s probably a good idea; they’re the likely top two picks in the draft. The others? Not so much. “It’s crazy,” Lucas said. “With some of the guys, I’ve thought, ’Why are they putting their name in the draft?”’ This leave-before-you’redone trend has been going on for a while. Players have been trading pencils for Porsches since Spencer Haywood sued for the right to leave college early in 1972. It really took off in 1976, when the NBA discarded its financial hardship rule and instituted its current earlyentry policy. That first year had 13 players leave school early, including Notre Dame’s Adrian Dantley and Norman Cook of Kansas. The numbers remained relatively flat until the mid-1990s, when it seemed none of the best players wanted to stay in school. The skip-college-altogether movement was next, followed by one-and-done after the NBA started requiring players to spend at least one year in college. Not all have had the success they expected.

messages between recruits and coaches, including assistants Beau Archibald, Patrick Sellers, Andre LeFler, associate head coach George Blaney, and then-assistant Tom Moore, who is now the head coach at Quinnipiac. Documents previously released by the school also showed calls between Nochimson and Calhoun. Messages seeking comment were left for Moore at Quinnipiac. UConn is to appear before the governing body on Oct. 15 to respond. Attorney Rick Evrard, an outside counsel who advises UConn on NCAA-related matters, said the school likely will spend the next three months reviewing the allegations. He said if the school confirms them, it is obligated to impose its own sanctions. Evrard said that, in cases such as UConn’s, penalties most often affect recruiting and could include the loss of scholarships. They don’t usually include a ban on postseason play or the forfeiting of any games when there was no competitive advantage obtained from the violations, he said. Still, recruiting violations can devastate a program. Indiana overhauled its famous basketball program — from which it hasn’t recovered — after former coach Kelvin Sampson was forced out in February 2008 when more than 100 impermissible calls to recruits came to light. Sampson had already been sanctioned for recruiting violations while he was the coach at Oklahoma. Among the allegations against UConn is that Archibald and Sellers provided false and misleading information to NCAA investigators. Sellers and Archibald, who served as director of basketball operations, have both resigned.

Jessica Hill/AP

Connecticut basketball head coach Jim Calhoun listens at a news conference in Storrs, Conn., Friday, May 28. The university says the NCAA has found eight violations in the school's men's basketball program. Hathaway said Archibald left last week and Sellers quit on Sunday. Both men released statements Friday saying they needed to devote their full attention to the allegations against them. “Coaching is my passion and something I have spent many years of enjoyment doing,� Sellers said. “I want the record to reflect this and for the people to see the respect and integrity that I will show toward the process in the months ahead.� Calhoun has coached 24 seasons at UConn and 38 overall, compiling a record of 823-358 that includes two national titles and another trip to the Final Four in 2009. He recently signed a five-year, $13 million contract. UConn was just 18-16 last season and lost in the second round of the NIT, as Calhoun faced an undisDISC PADS OR BRAKE SHOES

closed medical problem. He took a medical leave of absence in January and missed seven games. He also has been treated for cancer three times during his UConn career, and last summer was hospitalized after breaking several ribs during a charity bike ride. The biggest blemish on the program until now came in 1996, when UConn was stripped of its NCAA Tournament run to the regional semifinals and ordered to return $90,970 in tournament revenue because two players accepted plane tickets from a sports agent. But this is the first time the program has received a letter from the NCAA accusing the school of major violations, Evrard said. The case has no impact on the other athletic programs at UConn, such as its national champion women’s basketball

team. “I am confident that the university will appropriately address and respond to this matter and continue cooperating fully with the NCAA as this process moves forward,� University President Michael Hogan said in a statement. UConn as an institution was cited for not adequately monitoring “the conduct and administration of the men’s basketball staff in the areas of: telephone records, representatives of the institution’s athletics interests; and, complimentary admissions or discretionary tickets.� The NCAA and the school have been investigating the program since shortly after a report by Yahoo! Sports in March 2009 that former team manager Josh Nochimson helped guide Miles to Connecticut, giving him lodging, transportation, meals and representation.

“I told myself, ‘yeah, you’re good, sure, but there are other girls here that are more good, maybe.’� But the 17-year-old Gwodog, who speaks four languages fluently — including French, English and two different dialects of the Zulu language — eventually discovered that was not the case. After mowing down Cassidy Gubin of St. Mary’s 6-0, 6-0 in the quarters on Thursday morning, Gwodog got her toughest test of the tournament against the feisty Anna Catherine Feaster of Knoxville Webb in the semis Thursday afternoon. Gwodog got off to a nightmare start against Feaster, dropping the first set 0-6. But the TKA state champion rebounded to take the match in three with 6-1 and 6-4 must wins to advance to Friday’s championship. “I knew I had to face these other girls and overcome them, and the stress and the pressure,� said Gwodog, who is nearly a straight-A student with just a couple B+s on her education resume. “I tried to do that all the tournament, and I did great. “(The competition at state) was tough, and I even got a six-luv on me in the semis. But I never told myself ‘you’re the best’ and all that kind of stuff. I just did what I had to do.� Friday’s match against Shackelford was a shot at redemption for Gwodog, who was handled easily by the St.

Andrew’s star in the region tournament finals. The loss to Shackelford was Gwodog’s only blemish of the season. It became obvious early that Gwodog was the better player on Friday, however, as Shackelford was on her heels the entire match just trying to return the powerful and well-placed Gwodog volleys. It seemed the only points Shackelford could manage came on unforced errors by Gwodog, who occasionally hit some powerful shots that sailed long. The steadying force for Gwodog throughout the championship and the entire state tournament was her “sponsor,� Dawn Porter of Knoxville, who sat in as the TKA coach in the absence of TKA’s tennis coach Adam Hall, who was unable to make the trip to Murfreesboro. “Dawn was like a conductor for me,� said Gwodog. “She was there telling me what things I wasn’t doing right and telling me what I needed to do all tournament.� Porter has been there for Gwodog since meeting the 17 year old two months ago at a tennis tournament in Knoxville. “She really comes from nothing, and she got on a plane and came here with nearly nothing,� said Porter. “So, I’m keeping her for the summer so people will have a chance to see her play, and maybe a college will take her on a scholarship. Any big tournament we can get her into, we’re going to get her to it. “She’s an awesome person on the inside, she’s a great player and she just needed a

little support, so that’s what I’m doing for her. “But she’s doing all the rest, and she’s doing really good. She’s just phenomenal, and she’s got a lot of potential.� Tennis was the ticket to this country for Gwodog. “I was known as one of the best players in Cameroon on the junior level,� explained Gwodog. “It wasn’t like nationals ..., just tournaments. But I just kept working.� Her work in the sport got her noticed by a missionary, who helped raise the funds to buy Gwodog a ticket to America with all her worldly possessions, consisting of a few items of clothing and a tennis racket. “She had nothing, not even a jacket when she got here (in January),� said Porter. No arrangement had been made with TKA prior to Gwodog’s journey to Tennessee, but being on the international boarding list of schools, the missionary in Cameroon steered Gwodog to Seymour. “He told me that he couldn’t just let my talents go to waste (in Cameroon),� said Gwodog. “He told me I would have a chance in America.�

Christine Ngo Gwodog fires a shot back to her opponent during the match. Although she’ll return to TKA this fall for her senior year of high school to be spent as the reigning state champ, Gwodog doesn’t intend to let her head get big on campus. “It was great to win for TKA,� said Gwodog. “Of course, I don’t think of myself as the star. I’m just a little girl who’s trying to find her way in tennis.� With a state championship under her belt and after catching the eye of several college coaches in attendance

for the state championship, it’s a sure bet that Gwodog will be playing tennis well into the future for a college program. But Gwodog, who will turn 18 in October, isn’t going to take anything for granted and will continue to work hard to achieve her dreams. “Have some colleges noticed me? Maybe yes, maybe no,� said Gwodog. “You never know. Maybe if I keep working and win another one next year ... then

Kick of

they will.� As she works to fulfill her dreams, Gwodog plans to enjoy her time spent living in the United States. “To come here is a big deal. Not many people from my country get this opportunity,� said Gwodog, one of five siblings of an ailing mother. “I’m very blessed, and the USA is really the right place to be. My mother wanted me to be here.� chitchcock@themountainpress.com

of trying to play their way onto a team in training camp, hit the NBA Development League or go overseas. More early-entry players this year will likely mean more disillusionment. “You’ve got some bad advice on some players,” said Ryan Blake, the NBA’s assistant director of scouting. Some of it stems from the flux of the NBA labor situation. The NBA’s collective bargaining agreement ends after the 2010-11 season and a lockout is a distinct possibility.

team, you’re not going to get paid this year or next year, if you’re really thinking there’s going to be a lockout.” The chances of making a team are going to be tougher. This year’s draft class is one of the deepest in recent years, loaded with gamechanging talent — Wall, Turner, Wall’s teammate DeMarcus Cousins, Georgia Tech’s Derrick Favors — at the top and solid all the way through. And with so many underclassmen jumping into the get-paid-to-play fray, there will be fewer roster spots available and more players scrambling to find work. “There’s obviously going

Clearly, there was some bad advice out there.” Sometimes, though, the advice only goes so far. For all the talk about lockouts, rookie salary caps and the chance at life-altering money, the decision to go or stay comes from the gut, from reaching for a sinceyou-were-little goal. “It’s not at all about the money for me, it’s about trying to pursue a dream that I’ve had my whole life,” said Butler star Gordon Hayward.

Advice

56-year-old man misses intimacy from wife with physical problems

Zits

Blondie

Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: I am a 56-year-old male and have been married to the love of my life for 33 years. The last 16 have been hard on her. She underwent chemo twice, had both breasts removed and, five years ago, had a hysterectomy. She can no longer take hormone replacement therapy. She is now 56, and her libido is zilch. She says she is willing to start taking hormones again so our love life will return, but she fears the cancer may come back. Annie, I would rather have her than not, but no sex apparently also means no contact. I would never cheat on her, but I need to feel her next to me. I need to hold her. We can have other forms of sex, but we rarely do. I sometimes go half a year without intimacy of any kind. If I bring it up, it starts a fight. I have tried romancing her and being extra nice and helpful, but still nothing. We’ve seen a therapist, who suggested other things she can do, but she refuses. When I want to cuddle, she pushes me away. She tells me she feels lonely at times, but I do, too. I hate to say it, but there are times when I look at other women. I feel like I’m dying of thirst in the desert, but when offered a nice glass of water, I’m not allowed to drink. What am I supposed to do? -Lonesome Dear Lonesome: Try to cut your wife some slack. She’s had a rough time, and sex is not high on her list of priorities. She also may suffer from a poor body image. She cannot work up any interest in intimacy and doesn’t want to risk

arousing you by cuddling. Still, there are things she can do to improve your sex life, and she should be willing to make the effort for the sake of your marriage. Gently suggest that she contact the American Cancer Society Reach to Recovery program (cancer.org) at 1-800-ACS-2345 (1-800227-2345) and discuss this with someone who understands. Dear Annie: My son is 26 years old and lives with his father, rent free. He sleeps all day and stays up all night drinking beer and watching TV. My ex-husband buys him whatever he wants or needs. “Joey” has had a couple of jobs, and we always think he is doing well, but then he quits. I have called the doctor’s office, but they say Joey needs to call. When I ask him to do so, he tells me nothing is wrong. Annie, I’m not sure my ex-husband can “tough love” the situation because he fears Joey will do something drastic. Can you suggest anything we can do so my son won’t simply lay in bed and not enjoy life? -- B.J. Dear B.J.: We assume you believe Joey is depressed, although he may simply be a freeloader who has never been asked to shoulder any responsibility. Either way, he needs help and so do his parents, especially Dad, who is tacitly encouraging Joey’s

behavior. Suggest that Dad look into Because I Love You (bily.org), P.O. Box 2062 Winnetka, CA 91396, and The National Alliance on Mental Illness (nami.org) at 1-800-950-NAMI (1-800950-6264). Dear Annie: The letter from “Son of a Portly Pop” prompted me to write to an advice columnist for the first time in my 50 years. Please tell him to look into Overeaters Anonymous (oa.org). Three years ago, I lost 70 pounds, and it has given me a new life. In addition to the weight, my high blood pressure and high cholesterol went away. I gained the courage to go back to school and am halfway through a graduate degree that I never dreamed of before. As a bonus, I have met wonderful friends. If “Son” can get “Pop” to an OA meeting, he will find support, acceptance and compassion. -- John Dear John: Congratulations. We hope “Pop” sees your letter and takes the first step in getting his health back. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
