City leaders nix outdoor beer By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer

PIGEON FORGE — It looks like diners in Pigeon Forge won’t be able to take a tall, cold one outside eateries in the city any time soon. The matter of beer sales on patios at restaurants came up during the City Commission’s

recent retreat after some business owners asked to be allowed the option. Despite their support, the matter appears to be dead in the water. City attorney Jim Gass said there have been some requests to allow the sales, with restaurateurs complaining they think they’re losing money to nearby cities that do permit outdoor imbibing. However, the argu-

ment worked as well in that discussion as it did during the recent push to get voters in Pigeon Forge to approve liquor by the drink sales. “We have some folks who are concerned they’re losing revenue because people are going to other places where they can get a drink outside a restaurant,” Gass said. The suggestion brought com-

ments in opposition from each of the commissioners, with several of them voicing concerns about what the move could mean. Commissioner David Wear, a former Pigeon Forge police officer, worried the move could make the city’s open container laws, which prohibit individuals walking around while drinkSee Beer, Page A4

Schools’ transportation Strawberry Plains man continually evaluated charged with burglary By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer Sevier County Schools’ bus routes have gone smoothly during the first few weeks of school, including the brand new routes planned for Catlettsburg Elementary School, transportation coordinator Jim Keener reported. Working in school transportation, however, is like working on a huge puzzle that never quite gets completed. “We work all the time on these routes; all the time we’re re-evaluating,” Keener said. “The first two weeks we were just getting everyone figured out, including new families who had moved to the area. It’s the third week of school now, and we’re still making adjustments.” Sevier County Schools has more than 140 buses transporting students to and from school. The geographical makeup of the bus routes is determined by the number of students living in a community, Keener said. “As far as we’re concerned, we are zoned — busing-wise. The routes can expand and contract as needed. You can go to school anywhere, you just can’t get bus transportation — and most people are pretty reasonable about that. If people are

living in a certain area and want transportation for their child, we try hard to meet that, but the bus routes have to be limited.” In determining bus routes, the transportation department examines the problematic areas first from the previous school year and looks at trends in growth. “We try to avoid second routes. It’s bad for kids to be sitting and waiting, as well as for teachers. We’ve been able to eliminate a lot of second runs, but if a bus can make a quick run and be back at the school in a few minutes, that’s a situation that would probably get a second run if there’s an overcrowding issue. It’s about maximizing the routes as best as you can.” Keener said depending on bus size, as many as 48 to “seventy-something” students could technically fit on a bus. “If you get up in the 60s, you’ve got a load. We’ll get reports that kids are standing, and we act quickly. Our first priority is always their safety.” Conduct is also an issue, he added. “Our employees love kids. If a child is being bullied on their bus, they report it. We have video recorders on the buses, but it’s so hard for the driver to look in their

mirror and pick out the kid who’s misbehaving. The bus is an extension of the classroom, and it’s important that parents teach their children courtesy and how to act on the bus.” Keener has strong faith in his bus drivers, who he says “do a good job.” “The phones start being answered at the bus garage at 6:30 a.m., and someone is there until 5 p.m. We know there will be parents calling. This morning, a bus broke down on a narrow county road. Within minutes, we had five or six drivers calling and offering to take extra routes.” Keener, who has a bachelor’s degree in management, went back to school four years ago to get his master’s degree in education. In the meantime, a position for transportation coordinator became available and Keener was hired. It’s something he “never dreamed” of doing several years ago, but he thoroughly enjoys his job. “We have a good relationship with the schools. If we didn’t, we couldn’t get it done. I don’t know what I would do without the principals and teachers. “(The transportation department) is always trying to find new ways, better ways.” n ebrown@themountainpress.com

department’s Station No. 1 on Highway 321, has been staffed by retired family members of department firefighters and other volunteers. In the last few years the number of people who could watch the market has dwindled. Now, the market is only open two or three days a week. “The department roadblock events and the flea market have been our two main sources of fund raising,” said Nichols. “But people nowadays work two or three jobs so it has been

hard for folks to find the time to volunteer their time to watch the flea market.” In the past, the market would raise from $12,000 to $15,000 a year. But the last couple of years have seen sales fall to “a fraction of that,” said Nichols. Beginning Monday, any items not sold during the Labor Day weekend sale will be removed, and the space they once occupied

will become an indoor training facility for firefighters. While the department’s flea market will soon be a memory, Nichols says he and department members are be grateful to those who volunteered over the years to operate it. “We couldn’t have done it without them,” he said. “They are one of the reasons the department is still here.”

Robert Wesley (Bob) Pickle, age 60 of Sevierville, passed away on Thursday morning, Sept. 3, 2009, after a short but courageous battle with cancer. Bob was born on April 2, 1949, in Knoxville, Tennessee, to Rachel and Wesley Pickle and graduated from Fulton High School in 1967. He was a member of St. Luke’s United Methodist Church in Kansas City, Missouri, and previously an active member for more than 20 years of Emerald Avenue United Methodist Church in Knoxville. Bob’s primary career was in truck leasing. After retiring from Rollins Truck Leasing, he became co-owner of Volunteer Truck Leasing and later worked other jobs as his health permitted, always in positions using his gift of salesmanship. The memories of Bob’s good nature and sense of humor are cherished by his family and friends. He was preceded in death by his father Wesley Pickle and his grandparents William Amos and Ada Tarwater Pickle and Samuel Houston and Christina Cusick Pickens. He is survived by his: mother: Rachel Pickle of Seymour; four children and their families: Kevin Pickle and wife Caoilte of Knoxville, Angie Merriman of Jefferson City and her children Brynn, Cody, and Kori, Kristi Pruitt and husband George of Dandridge and their children Dustin and Kristopher, Mandi Forrester of Jefferson City and her children Jacob, Erica, and Brian; great-grandson: Caylek; Previous wife and mother of his children: Terry Pickle of Dandridge; sisters and brothers-in-law: Frances and Terry Harper of Seymour, Janie and Jim Porter of Knoxville; brother: William Pickle of Knoxville; aunt: Cusick (Toots) Clow of Clearwater, FL; uncle: Ben Barbee of Knoxville; and several loving cousins, nieces, nephews, and many close friends. A very special thank you to the doctors, nurses, and staff working with Dr. Hanna and the nurses of University of Tennessee Hospital on 12 East who provided excellent care and concern for Bob as his health declined.

ing alcohol, harder to enforce. Commissioner Randal Robinson, meanwhile, said allowing the drink to be served outside could cause a problem during large events like car shows. With plenty of people in town looking to sit somewhere they can see and hear the autos cruising the Parkway, restaurants along the busy strip might have to deal with large, unruly crowds, Robinson said. Beyond that, Vice Mayor Kevin McClure wondered aloud about the parsing and semantics of the issue. “What do you define as a patio?� he asked. While the question might seem like a stumbling block to McClure, it’s not an insurmountable one. Officials in Sevierville earlier this year considered an ordinance that defines patio and allows beer sales on such a restaurant structure. In the end, McClure brought up the specter of that failed liquor vote, which was defeated by hundreds of votes in the May city elections, in suggesting the group not consider the matter now.

“I don’t know if it’s the right time to be discussing this right now,� McClure said. “With the way the liquor vote failed, I’m just not sure this is something the people of the city would want us to be considering at this time.�

Parton made her entrance by joining Owens and other family members on stage at the Backporch Theater while singing. “For 25 years, I’ve been hearing about them dang chestnut trees,� she said with her signature giggle. “I came up here today to talk about my Uncle Bill Owens. He used to take me around Nashville and wherever else I could sing.� In fact, it was Uncle Bill who first “discovered� Parton when he heard her singing while she was washing dishes as a child. Parton told the crowd she recently learned Owens was honored by Dollywood for another good deed. He had heard of a little boy who loved the park but couldn’t ride the attractions because of his heart condition. When he found out the boy wanted to learn how to play the guitar, Owens presented him with one of his own and gave the boy lessons. “You’re the best thing that has ever happened to me,� Owens told Parton. “And this (day) is the second best thing that has ever happened to me.� Bryan Burhans, president of the American Chestnut Foundation, said his organization relies on the work of volunteers. “We’re working hard to bring back the American Chestnut Tree,� Burhans said to Parton. “We couldn’t do it if it weren’t for people like your Uncle Bill.� The foundation harvested its first blight-re-

Thomas Foundation “Evening of Elegance� auction last month, also attended the event. Just that morning, they enjoyed a breakfast country ham, gravy, biscuits and more prepared by Parton herself. The evening before, they toured her home and enjoyed a barbecue and live bluegrass music with the singer and 10 of their friends. “It was worth every penny,� said Hall, who was wearing sparkly butterfly jewelry that was a gift from Parton. “She was just like an old friend; she makes you feel like you’re part of her family. And the food was amazing!� “We’re very humbled that she would even open her home to us,� agreed Taylor, who was also wearing her gift of jewelry. Scott McClelland of Beaumont, Texas was one of the lucky guests invited to Parton’s home. “The most touching part of the night was when she sang ‘My Tennessee Mountain Home.’ And she was so patient — I took about 20 pictures of her!�

Negotiator promises bill ‘soon’ WASHINGTON (AP) — House liberals pleaded with President Barack Obama on Friday to push for creation of a government-run health care program as the Senate’s chief negotiator said he won’t wait much longer for Republicans to compromise amid dwindling chances for a bipartisan bill. Finance Committee Chairman Max Baucus, D-Mont., held a nearly two-hour teleconference with his small group of

negotiators, who call themselves the “Bipartisan Six.� Afterward, Baucus was careful to leave the door open to a long-sought deal, but he clearly signaled the time has come for him to move ahead. “I am committed to getting health care reform done — done soon and done right,� Baucus said in a statement. He is considering making a formal proposal to the group of negotiators. Obama, meanwhile,

WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal regulators said Friday that a GlaxoSmithKline vaccine prevents the leading cause of cervical cancer in women, bringing the company one step closer to competing with Merck’s blockbuster Gardasil, which has controlled the U.S. market for three years. In documents posted online, the Food and Drug Administration said Cervarix — Glaxo’s vaccine against human papilloma virus or HPV — successfully blocked the two leading strains of the virus nearly 93 percent of the time. But even as the British drugmaker moves closer to competing in the U.S., Merck is poised to begin marketing Gardasil to boys and men. In a separate review, the FDA said that vaccine prevented genital warts in males 90 percent of the time. The agency will ask a panel of vaccine experts next week to weigh in on both vaccines. The FDA is

not required to follow the group’s advice, though it usually does. While Merck has suggested the approval for boys could double the potential market for Gardasil, Leerink Swann analyst Seamus Fernandez said the benefit likely will be minimal. Genital warts caused by HPV usually clear up by themselves, and the cancers caused by the virus are extremely rare in men.

WASHINGTON (AP) — At least it’s not all bad anymore. The nation’s unemployment rate climbed last month to 9.7 percent — the highest in nearly a generation — but the number of job losses was less than expected and the smallest monthly total in a year. “It’s good to see the rate of job losses slow down,� said Nigel Gault, chief U.S. economist at IHS Global Insight. But with unemployment rising, “there isn’t the underlying fuel there for strong consumer spending growth,� which is vital for a strong recovery. Employers shed 216,000 jobs in

WASHINGTON (AP) — The White House on Friday dismissed as pointless the furor over President Barack Obama’s plan to deliver a televised back-to-school speech to the nation’s students. “I think we’ve reached a little bit of the silly season when the president of the United States can’t tell kids in school to study hard and stay in school,� presidential spokesman Robert Gibbs told reporters. “I think both political parties agree that the dropout rate is something that threatens our longterm economic success.� Obama’s planned address to students has prompted a surprising push-back from some quarters over what the White House sees as an important but innocuous topic. Some conservative critics say Obama is trying to promote a political agenda and overstepping his

run plan to compete with private health insurers. On Thursday, they sent Obama a letter saying they could not support a health bill that lacked such a public option. Woolsey said Obama listened, asked questions and said the dialogue should continue. She said a follow-up meeting will occur next week at the White House. Another participant said the president was noncommittal about the government-run plan.

Recovery difficult as jobless rate hits 9.7 pct August, the Labor Department said Friday. That was 9,000 fewer than expected but a far cry from the job creation required to rejuvenate the economy: about 125,000 new jobs each month just to keep the unemployment rate from increasing. The unemployment rate rose threetenths of a percentage point since July, reaching its highest level since 1983, when it was 10.1 percent. Economists predict that the jobless rate will peak above 10 percent by the middle of next year. At the same time, many analysts say the economy should grow by a healthy 3 to 4 percent in the third quarter,

Tim Pawlenty of Minnesota, a potential presidential contender in 2012, said Obama’s speech is “uninvited� and that the president’s move raises questions of content and motive. Many school districts have decided not to show Obama’s speech, to be delivered at 12 noon EDT Tuesday, partly in response to concerns from parents.

pulling the United States out of the longest recession since World War II. Most of that improvement, though, stems from auto companies and other manufacturers refilling their depleted stockpiles. Those inventories had plummeted as factories and retailers sought to bring goods more in line with reduced sales during the recession. Without stepped-up demand from consumers, any current economy growth might not last. The Obama administration’s $787 billion stimulus package of tax cuts and increased spending contributed to the improvement, along with the popular Cash for Clunkers program.

Colleges see more students By LUCAS L. JOHNSON II Associated Press Writer NASHVILLE — More students are attending Tennessee’s state community colleges and universities this fall, preliminary enrollment figures from the Board of Regents show. Enrollment at the community colleges increased about 18 percent, from 76,582 in 2008 to 90,483 this year, Regents spokeswoman Mary Morgan said Thursday. At the universities, the number of students increased about 6 percent, from 83,319 to 88,143.

“Even though these are preliminary numbers, I think we will see an overall increase in enrollment,” said Morgan, adding that such increases usually occur in a “down economy.” “What this suggests is that we have a lot of people wanting to go back to school to retrain, to get different jobs or better jobs,” she said. Still, the enrollment increases are coming amid tuition hikes resulting from the poor economy. In June, the Board of Regents — which oversees six universities, 13 two-year colleges and 26 technol-

ogy centers — approved tuition increases between 6 and 9 percent for full-time university students. A similar tuition increase took effect this fall at the five-campus, 47,000-student University of Tennessee. Tuitionrose7percentatUT-Martin and UT-Chattanooga and 9 percent at UT-Knoxville, the UT College of Law at Knoxville and the UT Space Institute at Tullahoma. That means a $490 undergraduate tuition increase at UT-Knoxville, to $5,918; a $296 increase to $4,506 at UT-Chattanooga, and a $308 increase to $4,708 at UT-Martin.

Miley Cyrus

SAVANNAH, Ga. (AP) — A Georgia judge has transferred the misdemeanor case of a 53-yearold man accused of trying to stalk M i l e y Cyrus to a court Cyrus that handles felony cases. Mark McLeod’s (mik-LOWD’s) attorney, James Byrne, said Friday prosecutors are trying to keep his client in jail without evidence that he’s dangerous. Police say McLeod, who lives about three hours from Georgia’s Tybee Island, traveled there in June and August looking for 16-year-old Cyrus as she filmed a movie. He faces misdemeanor charges including attempted stalking.

commentary

Obama sent reeling by backlash In the dark days of the Iraq war, when valiant U.S. troops faced down multiple enemies who obeyed no rules of war, President Bush never panicked. Even when his approval rating dropped below 35 percent, the president slugged it out for better or worse, depending on your world view. The same cannot be said of President Obama, who is now reeling under the pressure of his collapsing health care vision. The latest evidence of this was a posting on the “Organizing for America” Web site, which was set up by Obama in January. The message, since scrubbed from the Web site, said this in part: “Stay at home for (Health Care Organizing Day). Call your senators that day (September 11) ... as we fight back against our own right-wing domestic terrorists who are subverting the American democratic process, whipped to a frenzy by their Fox propaganda network ceaselessly re-seizing power for their treacherous leaders.” Again, that posting came from an organization created by President Obama. And even though somebody saw the insanity of the words and removed them, if this isn’t panic, nothing is. I believe it is safe to say that many liberals are stunned by the president’s decline in the polls and his inability to sell a government-run health care system. It all sounds so compassionate: helping the poor get quality medical care, ensuring that insurance companies do not gouge working Americans. How could you oppose that? But theory is one thing; actual performance is quite something else. As you know, the president had months to clarify the details of the massive health care program but could not do it. Also, the Congressional Budget Office keeps embarrassing Obama by contradicting his optimistic financial prognostications. Americans may not like math, but they can do it. This health care deal is adding up to chaos. Add to that the fact that hardcore leftists like Nancy Pelosi and Howard Dean are almost hysterical in pushing federal health care, and a deep distrust has set in. Seniors in particular are skeptical that they may go to the end of the line when the feds begin calling the medical shots. And then there is the senseless viciousness on the part of some who support national health care mandates. Calling those who oppose your health care point of view “domestic terrorists” is a slander no spin-doctor could deny. There is no question that the Obama administration has been severely damaged this summer, but it can still regroup if it doesn’t panic. Most Americans want a fair health care system and are worried about protecting their families from devastating illness. But at this point, they may be more worried about a White House that is not only losing the health care debate, but is failing to control the crazies on their side. Not exactly a healthy situation. — 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?

Three Cheers

Young Ashley dancers really show their skills

It was a summer in which several youngsters got away from home and kicked up their heels — and their parents didn’t mind a bit. Several members of Ashley’s Dance Academy performed in two states and a national competition, many of them winning top honors. Members of the Shine Dance Company and East Tennessee Cloggers traveled to Orlando to perform at Universal Studios and SeaWorld. Dancers, ages 6-17, performed tap, jazz and clogging routines. Also, several cloggers performed at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Mo. Leah Humble, Sara Hinchey, Maddie Marsh, Avery Marsh and Ashley Marsh joined the Red River Cloggers of Arkansas for four shows each day for the championship clogging show. The academy also competed in the Stage One National Dance Competition in Gatlinburg. Among those winning honors were Humble, Morgan Carrell, Maddie Marsh and Elizabeth Starnes. Mini-shine members received “high gold” for their jazz routine, while mini East Tennessee cloggers received the same honor in their category. Take a bow, young ladies — you deserve it.

Get those library cards New Center students earn during September sign-up those shiny new lockers

It’s quick, it’s easy, it’s free, and it’s something no child should do without. It is, quite simply, a library card. September is Library Card Sign-Up Month, and the Sevier County Public Library System wants all children to get a card and to avail themselves to all of the services offered. “A library card has always been the most important school supply of all,” says Library System Director K.C. Williams. She points out that not only can kids check out books, they can get homework help, play video games, use the Internet, and have access to music and DVDs. To receive a card, all that’s required is for a parent with a picture I.D. to accompany the child to sign up. For more information, visit the Main Library at 321 Court Ave., or call 453-3532; the Seymour Branch at 137 W. Macon Lane, 573-0728; and the Kodak Branch, 319 W. Dumplin Valley, 933-0078. Visit the library online at www.sevierlibrary.org. Take advantage. Your child will be glad you did.

Each student in the sixth through eighth grade at New Center Elememtary School now has a new locker because, as the old commercial slogan went, they earned it. New Center students raised $11,500 from family and friends during an event they came up with in May. The event was called “Rockers for Lockers,” which was more of a walk-a-thon, converted to “rocka-thon” because they were “rocking” to music as they walked. The school’s former lockers, which were 20 years old, were in pretty bad shape, Principal Nancy Sims said. The school’s Parent Advisory Council approached Sims last year about an “extreme makeover” for the facility and lockers were on the list, with the rock-a-thon suggested as a fundraiser. Tanger Outlet Center, which “adopted” New Center last year, kicked in another $1,000, and the PAC raised another $5,000 through other projects. And — “shazam!” — there was money for 142 new lockers. “I was amazed at how much money they raised,” said Sims. “

Political view

Take time on 2 special days to remember POWs, MIAs

Public forum

Editor: We are familiar with most of our special national days. They are preprinted on our calendars. We all know about Christmas, Memorial Day, Independence Day, and Veterans Day. Most of us can name more of these special days. We get a day off from work; we celebrate a get-together with family and friends. There are two special days that most of us are less familiar with. One of these is now appearing on our calendars. Patriots’ Day is designated to remember the events of Sept. 11, 2001. We all remember the anxiety we felt during that day, as the events were passed along to us on TV and radio. Some of us were there. In recognition of Patriots’ Day, American Legion Post 104 supports an idea going around on the Internet: On Sept. 11, 2009, fly the American flag.

Earlier this summer, Post 104 and the City of Sevierville dedicated a flag that is now flying at Forks of the River Cemetery and Park in Sevierville. Because we did this, a few days ago we received a letter from the National League of Families of American POW and MIAs. In their letter, they thanked the city and us for flying this flag. But more importantly, they reminded us that the flag and flying it are only another symbol of something more important. In this case, this symbol reminds us to be aware of the continuing need to pursue closure on the status of America’s POWs and MIAs. The City of Sevierville and Post 104 did our duty to fly this flag. It remains the continuing duty of all Americans to be informed concerning this issue; we all should continue to require that the authorities pursue closure for our fellow Americans, who remain unaccounted for. Freedom is not free. The Americans represented by this flag and their families did their part to provide freedom; we should take the time

to think about them and thank them for their sacrifice. The second special day is always the third Friday in September. This year, that’s Sept. 18. Nationa POW-MIA Recognition Day is not on many calendars yet; you might want to make note of it. Post 104 asks you to take the time to discuss this issue with your family and friends, and we ask that when it’s convenient, visit Forks of the River Cemetery and Park, go over to this location, look up at the POW-MIA flag, and give those Americans represented by this flag more than a passing thought. We have two special days within a week of each other. These days should be recognized, acknowledged, respected and honored, just as we do all the others. We at American Legion Post 104 trust that you will. Steve Holbert American Legion Post 104 Sevierville

PREP FOOTBALL

Smoky Bears exile the Patriots 32-21 McCarter turns heads with 105 yards on four carries By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer

Jason Davis/The Mountain Press

Sevier County quarterback Zach Flynn sprints past a bevy of Jefferson County defenders on his way to a 63-yard touchdown run. The score was the first of the night for the Smoky Bears in their 32-21 win over the Patriots. Flynn figured in on two Sevier County TDs, rushing for this one and passing for another.

TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS FOOTBALL

Football time in Tennessee

SEVIERVILLE - The first celebration is not the sweetest. That is a lesson the Jefferson County Patriots (0-3, 0-1) learned the hard way Friday night at Sevier County High School, as the homestanding Smoky Bears (3-0, 1-0) came back from an early deficit Senior Kel McCarter to post a 32-21 District 2-AAA win. The game wasn’t decided until senior RB Kel McCarter broke free up the center of the field for a 70-yard TD run with 10:33 in the contest to make it the eventual final, but Jeff County made the play early that provided the Bears all the inspiration they’d need for the rest of the night. The underdog Patriots came to town with an upset on their minds. On the game’s opening possession, Jeff County did something they hadn’t done the first two games of the season ... march at will down the field with a well-executed misdirection veer offense led by junior QB Anthony Goins for a touchdown. The 10-play, 69-yard Patriot drive was culminated by speedy little junior RB Dakota Wright’s two-yard option sweep right for a touchdown with 8:23 in the first quarter. The Bears defense looked asleep on the opening drive, along with the rest of the SCHS sideline. See BEARS, Page A9

MIDDLE SCHOOL FOOTBALL

Middle school Bears fall just short Kiffin-led Vols open against FBS newcomer WKU versus Union Grove By BETH RUCKER Associated Press Writer

KNOXVILLE — Lane Kiffin has promised a lot of things in his nine months as Tennessee’s coach, including a win over Florida. One thing he won’t promise is the Volunteers are good enough to beat 30-point underdog and Football Bowl Subdivision newcomer Western Kentucky in their season opener Saturday. “There will come a day where we’ll be in that situation where we’ll have to worry about our players overlooking a team because of our success, but right now if we have any players overlooking Western Kentucky we’ve got a big issue,” Kiffin said. “There’s no way we’re good enough to do that.” The Volunteers weren’t that good last year. It’s why coach Phillip Fulmer

was fired en route to a 5-7 finish. All eyes have been on Tennessee since the former NFL Oakland Raiders coach and Southern California assistant replaced Fulmer on Dec. 1. But the youngest active FBS coach is trying not to focus on the excitement of coaching his first game at Tennessee. “Last thing that I can do is go out of my focus and all of a sudden they feel something different in me,” he said. Kiffin has held fans’ interest throughout the offseason with his headline-drawing antics. He accused Florida coach Urban Meyer of cheating to land a recruit, drawing a reprimand from the SEC. Tennessee has reported six minor NCAA violations since Kiffin became coach

FRIENDSVILLE — The Sevier County Middle School Bears traveled to Union Grove Middle School Thursday evening and fell to the homestanding Bulldogs 16-14. The first half was a defensive struggle as neither team could find the scoreboard. In the second half Union Grove got on the scoreboard first and lead at the end of the third quarter 8-0. The Bears struck on their next position as Luke Manning raced 51 yards for the touchdown. For the extra point try Luke Manning found Payton Pilgram in the end zone to even the score 8-8. The scoring was not over, however, as Union Grove drove the ball down the field for their second

touchdown of the night moments later to regain the lead at 16-8. With less than two minutes to go in the game the Bears quickly moved the ball down the field and Manning found Ben Ogle for the Bears’ second score of the night. With the game on the line the Bears were forced to go for two. Unfortunately the try failed, and the Bulldogs held on to win 16-14. “We just didn't execute on offense and missed several opportunities to score,” head coach Jim Bingham said. “We'll go back to work on Monday to get better and prepare for the first home game of the year on Thursday against Carpenter Middle School.” From submitted reports

TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS FOOTBALL

Vols QB Jonathan Crompton enjoying new confidence By BETH RUCKER Associated Press Writer KNOXVILLE — Jonathan Crompton’s father gave him a piece of advice on getting over his miserable season as Tennessee’s quarterback. “’Just let it all hang loose. What do you have to lose? Nothing,”’ the senior recalled his father saying. “That’s what it’s all about. It’s still a game.” Something about that clicked, Crompton said. Now, as the Volunteers prepare for Saturday’s opener against Western Kentucky, he’s enjoying a resurgence in confidence. Crompton won the start-

ing job nearly two weeks ago for a second season after a tight competition in fall camp with his backup from last season, junior Nick Stephens. They’re the same two who were engaged in a season long soap opera in 2008 with the quarterbacks and their teammates wondering weekly which one would start. Stephens was tabbed after Crompton struggled through the first four games and started until the Vols lost to Wyoming. Crompton won the starting job back for the last two games, but Stephens and third-string quarterback B.J. Coleman still saw

Jonathan Crompton

plenty of playing time. Crompton finished the season with 889 yards passing, only four touchdowns and five intercep-

tions. He had as many touchdowns in 2006 playing back up to Erik Ainge. Crompton was at times booed by fans, and the quarterback said he received threatening e-mails as the season tanked. Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin could see what Crompton through last season during some early fall practices. “It’s like a bad relationship,” Kiffin said at the time. “He’s hurt. You can tell when things go bad because he freezes up a little bit because he’s been beat up for so long here.” Kiffin has pledged not to rotate quarterbacks. Now Crompton looks more

relaxed. He still throws the occasional interception but walks back to the huddle as if nothing happened. He stays after practice to throw with the wide receivers and has filled notebooks with notes. Last season he would stiffly respond to questions with succinct answers. Now he doesn’t mind elaborating and will even joke. “It’s still the game of football, and that’s the game I chose as a little kid that I wanted to play. And I love it, and I’m passionate about it,” Crompton said. The confidence is carrying over to the entire offense.

“You see guys that are practicing hard, they’ve got a smile on their face when it’s working for them,” defensive tackle Wes Brown said. “That’s really good to see because they’ve really been coming on the last couple of weeks.” Crompton likes the new offensive system under the first-year coach. He doesn’t have to think too much. He just plays. “I guess you say it’s a cliche, but it’s like it just clicked, and something just happened,” he said. “I guess you could say I just went back to my old self. And it’s been fun ever since that happened.”

But when Jefferson County coach Justin Anderson sent every player from his sideline to the right corner of the end zone to celebrate, Sevier County paid attention. “I’ll tell you what, we were asleep before that, I’ll tell you that much,” said Brewer. “I think (the Bears players) took it a little personal. “I understand what coach Anderson was doing. That was (the Pats) first touchdown of the season. I know he was trying to fire his team up, but I think it woke us up a little too.” So when the Bears offense lined up in victory formation for the last snaps of the contest, SCHS senior Jeremiah Foster proclaimed to the SCHS sideline that, “they might celebrate in our end zone, but we’re going to celebrate after the game.” Andrew Schuchart’s 35-yard extra point kick following the unsportsmanlike penalty for the Patriot celebration fell well short as it drifted right, keeping it 6-0 Jeff County. The offense got Sevier County’s first shot at redemption, and when senior QB Zach Flynn delivered a strike to Bryant Gilson for 14 yards on 3rdand-8, it not only gave the Bears a fresh set of downs, it stopped the momentum from gelling on the Jeff County side when a threeand-out punt would have just poured gas on the flame of the Patriots. On the very next play from scrimmage, Flynn took a keeper to the right and crossed into Jeff County territory, cut back to the middle of the field and took it the rest of the way untouched for 63 yards and pay dirt, giving SCHS a 7-6 edge after freshman kicker Jared Baxter connected on the PAT kick. Shaken by the first Jeff County drive, the Bears D still had some redemption of its own to search for. They found it after forc-

Nine plays later, the Bears found themselves in a 4th-and-7 situation at the Pat 14. Flynn dropped back to pass, stepped up in the pocket to avoid two outside pass rushers bearing down on him, scrambled right and delivered a strike in the right side of the end zone to Gilson for a 14-6 edge after another Baxter PAT at the 3:55 mark of the first quarter. The Patriots answered in the second quarter, however. With the Bears in a 3rdand-16 and their own 4, Flynn looked deep to the streaking senior WR Bryce Whaley up the right side of the field. Unfortunately, there were three Jeff County defenders running with him. Senior DB Evan Kirkpatrick hauled in the interception with 8:41 in the half. The Pats capitalized

CHECK OUT S LARRY’ IMPORT CORNER

“They might celebrate in our end zone, but we’re going to celebrate after the game.” SCHS senior Jeremiah Foster, on the Patriots’ penalty-inducing TD celebration in the first quarter of Friday’s game

nine plays and 51 yards later when Wright ran his second touchdown of the night in from one-yard out with 4:48 until intermission. The key play on the drive came on 2nd-and-13 from the SCHS 32. Goins was trapped for a sack and a huge loss between the Jeff County sideline and eight Smoky Bear defenders, but he somehow stepped through the sea of purple shirts for a 20-yard gain to the SCHS 12. Chasing the point the lost on the opening drive, the Pats went for two and got nowhere, keeping the SCHS edge 14-12. Looking for a change of pace, Sevier County sent

junior QB Danny Chastain in on the ensuing possession, and it paid off for the Bears three plays later. On 3rd-and-4 at the SCHS 28, Chastain dropped back to pass with two Jeff County rushers bearing down on his blind side. He was hit just as he released

the football, but the pass was unaffected and a perfect spiral landed in the waiting arms of Whaley, this time racing down the center of the field uncovered and 20 yards from the nearest Patriot defender. Whaley went 72 yards for the score with 2:32 in the half, and the Bears held a 20-12 lead that would stand until intermission after Baxter’s PAT was blocked. Looking to set the tone for the rest of the night, the Bears took the opening drive of third quarter and marched 75 yards on 12 plays for a TD and a 26-12

lead, capped by junior RB Dakota Cogdill’s five-yard run up the middle. But the Pats refused to go away and answered with a methodical 70-yard, 13-play drive to cut it to one possession again, 26-19, with 1:41 in the third. SCHS followed with a three-and-out punt, but a bad snap way over senior Austin Nave’s head flew 24 yards into the end zone. Nave ran back and tossed the loose ball out of the back of the end zone for a safety, cutting the SCHS lead to 26-21 with 35.4 second in the third. The Bear D responded, however, forcing Jeff County into a three-andout punt. Two plays later, McCarter broke the 70-yard backbreaker, making it the eventual final with 10:33 in the game. McCarter led the Bears with 105 rushing yards on just four attempts for a ridiculous 26.3-yard average, and he also led the team with 10 tackles on defense. Flynn went 11-of21 passing for 94 yards, a TD and a pick, while Chastain went 2-for-2 for 90 yards and a TD. Gilson caught six balls for 65 yards and a score, and Whaley tallied 92 receiving yards on three catches with a score. Sevier County next travels to Dobyns-Bennett next Friday night for nonconference action. chitchcock@themountainpress.com

for things such as staging a mock news conference for prospects and mentioning a recruit by name on the radio. Kiffin hired one of the most expensive staffs with assistants that included father and NFL defensive guru Monte Kiffin, and several of his fellow SEC coachesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; best recruiters. He also signed a heralded recruiting class that included Bryce Brown, the consensus top running back prospect in the country. Those freshmen will have to perform for Tennessee to have offensive success against Western Kentucky. The Volsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; wide receiver corps has been severely depleted by injuries. Top returning receiver Gerald Jones is expected to be out a few weeks with a high ankle sprain, deep threat Denarius Moore is recovering from summer foot surgery and senior Austin Rogers is out for the season after tearing a knee ligament. Freshman Nuâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Keese Richardson is slated to start alongside senior Quintin Hancock â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t catch a pass last season. Kiffin has promised freshmen Marsalis Teague and Zach Rogers

â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still have that bad taste in our mouth from last year and everything that we went through last year.â&#x20AC;? UT defensive back Eric Berry

theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have their chances Saturday too in what could be a strong youth movement. Brown and Montario Hardesty, whose six touchdowns led the Vols last season, will anchor an improved running game. With an entirely new Vols staff and lineup, Western Kentucky coach David Elson knows he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t fully anticipate what the Hilltoppers will face. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just kind of researched Lane Kiffinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offensive philosophy from when he was at USC and the Oakland Raiders and obviously, also with Monte Kiffin and his defensive background,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re making educated guesses.â&#x20AC;? The Hilltoppers are making their debut as the Sun Belt Conferenceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest member and the 120th team in the FBS. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re no strangers to

playing on the road against an SEC opponent. Saturday will be the sixth time in the past seven years theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done so. Elson knows having experienced guys like Gaebler, senior running back Tyrell Hayden and senior center Cody Hughes will help. For the Vols, this is the first chance to prove last year was a fluke. They hit rock bottom when Wyoming â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a 27-point underdog â&#x20AC;&#x201D; came to Neyland Stadium and beat Tennessee less than a week after Fulmer was fired. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everyone expected us to beat those guys and have a pretty big game, but we ended up losing and were pretty upset about it,â&#x20AC;? Berry said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We still have that bad UT Athletic Department taste in our mouth from last year and everything that we Today Tennessee fans will get their first look at Lane Kiffin as the game day coach of the Tennessee Volunteers. UT and Western Kentucky kickwent through last year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We just need to come out off at 12:20 p.m. on the SEC Network. and make a statement. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our goal this weekend.â&#x20AC;?

Advice

Not aunt’s place to judge how sibling educates his daughter

Zits

Blondie

Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: My 11-year-old niece, “Molly,” just spent a week with my kids and me. My sister and brother-in-law home school her. Both of them hold master’s degrees, but I was floored by Molly’s poor academic skills. When the kids played hide-and-seek, she could not count to 100. She couldn’t figure out how many hours it was until dinnertime (it was 1:00 and we eat at 5:00). She could not count money. She could not read simple phrases. When the kids made postcards to send to relatives, Molly could spell “Mom and Dad,” but not her last name or Ohio, the state where she lives. Of course, she was embarrassed by her lack of skills and avoided other situations where she would be asked to read, count or write, including baking cookies, since it requires measuring. Molly is a bright girl. She has a great vocabulary and a wonderful memory. My sister told me they follow a childcentered curriculum where my niece’s interests drive what she learns. When she was interested in underwater life, they spent a week at the beach and learned about waves and marine mammals. Molly can tell us details about these things, but she couldn’t read a book about fish if her life depended on it. I’m guessing they never saw 100 dolphins or she’d be able to count that high. Every year, state law requires my sister to submit a portfolio of Molly’s work to a certified teacher who evaluates it and determines whether she is making adequate

progress. The teacher has never found any problems, but I later found out she is another mom in their home school group who follows the same curriculum. My sister said I worry too much, and my brother-in-law told me to “butt out.” I am concerned that Molly is illiterate and may not develop the basic skills to function in daily life. What do I do? — Molly’s Aunt Dear Aunt: We understand your concerns, but this is truly not your business. There is nothing wrong with a child-centered curriculum, although it behooves parents to encourage basic reading and math skills at the same time. This can include bedtime stories and baking cakes, which would not be part of the daily curriculum, but rather normal parentchild interaction. Since Molly is a bright child, she will eventually want to read and, we hope, make the necessary effort to do so. Please try to be a loving aunt and not a judge of her education. Dear Annie: My friend “Dora” and I are no longer speaking. I said some bad things about her to my brother, and she found out. I said those things because she got me into trouble with my family by telling them I said horrible things about them. But she twisted what I said and made it sound nega-

tive when it wasn’t. Annie, I’ve been a good friend to her. I always treated her when we went out, loaned her money she never paid back and did favors for which she’s never said thank you. I don’t know why, but I miss her. I texted her, but she never responded, and I know if I call she won’t answer. Is it worth it to keep trying? — Lost Friendship Dear Lost: Not to us, but then, we don’t see the appeal. We suspect if you ignore her, Dora will eventually contact you again, but the relationship sounds a little toxic, and we think you two would be better off without each other. Dear Annie: I have another suggestion for “Victim of Family Paparazzi,” whose stepdaughters post unflattering pictures of her on their Web site. She should get a camera and, on the next outing, smile and say it’s time to share some pictures of them with others. Then, even if they are pictureperfect cuties, we’re sure she can manage to catch a few shots to even the score. — The Villages, Fla.
