SEVIERVILLE — Police and sheriff detectives are looking for a trio they say have been cleaning up at local laundromats. They’re not sure how they’re doing it, but they say the three have been opening the change receptacles and machines at the wash rooms, taking amounts ranging from a few hundred dollars to more than $1,000. County investigators know of at least four times they’ve hit without being caught, but they’ve been marked with the criminal stain thanks to surveillance pictures from one of the places they’ve pulled jobs.

The shots show the alleged burglars on two consecutive Sundays at Wash House Laundry on Long Springs Road. There are several surprising things about the way they operate, including that they do their work in the daylight, don’t mind if there are patrons in the building at the time and seem to have a tool that allows them access to the locked boxes. “They’re pretty brazen,” Sevier County Sheriff’s Detective Johnny Bohanan says. “We have them on video where they’ve been working on some machines and somebody comes in, so they just sit down and act like nothing’s going on. They look just like regular laundromat customers to the other people. Then, when the people leave, they’re right back to

work.” Perhaps most interesting to Bohanan isn’t that the thieves are working in plain sight but that piece of equipment they’re using to get into the machines. Bohanan says he and investigators from other departments — the burglars have also hit laundromats inside the cities, though Bohanan’s work is focused on Wash House since it’s the only one in the county — can’t figure out what the “batterylike” item is. “It seems they have some kind of tool they’re using to unlock them and lock them back. No one can figure that out because these are difSee Suspects, Page A4

PIGEON FORGE — It looks like the city’s wedding industry will get the representation at least one of its members has been pushing for. The City Commission voted to appoint two new members to what’s commonly called the Tourism Advisory Board, a group of citizens and business people who give the Department of Tourism direction in its marketing strategies. The two folks given a post are Brad Ivens for the vacation lodging industry and Bruce Johnson, owner of several restaurants including Mama’s Farmhouse and Alamo Steakhouse, to an at-large post. While Ivens’ appointment was made based mainly on the fact he manages some rental accommodations, commissioners also pointed out he owns Mountain Valley Wedding Chapel and should, therefore, be able to offer a voice for the matrimony industry. “I think he could do double duty there,” Mayor Keith Whaley said before the group voted unanimously to approve the recommendations made by Tourism Director Leon Downey. Among those in the audience for the session was Laurie Holmes, the co-owner of Wedding Bell Chapel. Holmes has attended every gathering of the commission for the last two months, each time reminding them of the wedding industry’s desire to have some representation on the tourism board. She has pointed out those who walk down

Corrections A story in Thursday’s Mountain Press titled, “County posts clerk position” had the wrong deadline for application submissions for the job. The last day they can be turned in is Sept. 24.

Longtime car businessman Richard Llewellyn had been visiting the Smoky Mountains for years — so when his friend Steve Burgin told him he wanted to sell his Chrysler Jeep Dodge dealership in Kodak, he jumped at the opportunity to make Sevier County his home. “I’ve always loved the area,” said Llewellyn, who is now president and CEO of the dealership. “I started coming here to get out of the Florida heat.” Thomas Hill Burgin Dodge, located off of Winfield Dunn Parkway, became Rocky Top Chrysler Jeep Dodge on Sept. 1. “It was important to me to keep things local. We’ve only lost one employee in

the acquisition. We have the same great people who have the same great way of fixing and dealing with cars. When you’re in a small community, that’s really important. My goal is to create a family culture.” Changing hands in the dealership was a long process, he added. “We had been working on it for about six months, and the dealer has to approve the deal. I had a house up here, so I was here two or three days a week throughout the summer.” Llewellyn has been in the car business for 30 years. “I was a CPA and a had a client who was a car dealer, and I liked the business model. And I’m a car guy — I like to race them, build them.”

Richard Llewellyn is the new president and CEO of Rocky Top Chrysler Dodge, formerly Thomas Hill Burgin Dodge. He has owned as many as 14 franchises at one time, including two other Chrysler stores. “I love the product and think it’s got an awesome future,” he said of Chrysler. “Eleven new models will be released in the next

Exterminators see rise in number of bed bug calls By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer You’ve long heard the saying “don’t let the bed bugs bite” — and according to news outlets across the country, it’s worthy advice these days. There’s been a resurgence of these pesky little insects, which Wikipedia describes as small parasites that feed on human blood. Although they’re not strictly nocturnal, they’re mainly active at night and are capable of

feeding unnoticed on their hosts. “These are ‘bugs without borders,’ which is how (a pest control) association magazine recently described them,” said Ray Johnson, owner of Johnson Pest Control. “It’s really getting overwhelm-

ing. We used to get one or two calls a month for bed bugs — now we’re getting three or four calls a week.” “We don’t really know why they’re exploding, but we know how: They’re great hitchhikers. They move from home to home, with people picking them up in hotels or by picking up used things outside like old furniture,” added Tony Beasley of Beasley Pest Control. “They really just move around from host to host.”

Both Johnson and Beasley agree that bed bugs have especially been on the rise in tourist areas such as the Smoky Mountains. “A lot of hotels and apartments deny that they have a problem, and it’s unbelievable the problems that dormitories are having with bed bugs,” Johnson said. “More and more lawsuits are showing up, and places have had to shut down to fumigate. We’re sending one of our employees up to New

Jersey next week for intensive bed bug training.” He said that while Johnson Pest Control has been using steam to kill the bugs and eggs, the company is looking at investing in heat treatment, which could cost anywhere from $60,000 to $80,000. Beasley and Johnson both say that there has been no correlation between bed bugs and any kind of illness or disease. People also shouldn’t be See Bugs, Page A4

Lane shifts expected next week on Hwy. 66 Submitted report The contractor working on Highway 66 widening will continue the five-minute stoppages weekdays between 9 a.m. and 3 p.m. to pull electric and other overhead utility cable from King Street to Boyds Creek Highway. AT&T is working on site and may be pulling wire across S66 in this section next week as well. The contractor will also be shifting traffic on the south end of the project next week, in this manner: Southbound traffic from

The Diner to the Atchley bridge will be shifted Monday night. This will require closing the left southbound lane from CVS to Main Street from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Tuesday. On Tuesday night, northbound traffic will be shifted in the same section. This will require that they close the left northbound lane from Main Street to Buddy’s BBQ from 7 p.m. to 6 a.m. Wednesday. Shifting lanes will allow the contractor to work on the storm drain, grading, base stone, curb and gutter, sidewalk, and paving for the new outside north-

bound lanes from King Street to Allensville. Progress made last week includes paving the new outside southbound lanes and constructing the sidewalk along them from Allensville to King Street; construction of the parapet atop the retaining walls; installing storm drain and utilities north of Douglas Dam Road; fine grading the base stone north of Douglas Dam Road; and constructing sections of curb and gutter. For questions regarding the project, call 4294509.

Boy, 9, has Titanic book published Submitted report PIGEON FORGE — Earlier this summer, 9-yearold Luke Copas toured the new Titanic Museum Attraction with his mother and father, Sabrina and Robby Copas. The fourth-grader at Northview Primary School in Kodak had already written a book about the ship, but his visit to the museum would lead to a huge surprise for the young writer. Last school year, then 8-year old Luke participated in the Child Authors’ Conference. An avid reader who loved learning about the past, Luke wanted his book to create a passion in other children for history. Sabrina Copas said, “Luke became a walking encyclopedia of all things Titanic. He was literally consumed by it. When it came time for him to actually write his book for the Child Authors’ Conference, it took him less than one week to write it because he knew the subject matter so well.” Luke showed his book to attraction co-owner Mary Kellogg-Joslyn. Impressed with the boy’s talent and driven by his enthusiasm, Kellogg-Joslyn secretly made a few phone calls and landed the boy a book

He writes so well and researched this book so deeply that I simply wanted to share it with others.” Recently, Luke’s entire class at Northview Primary was called to the school library, where KelloggJoslyn and First Class Maid

Jaynee made a surprise appearance. At first, Luke didn’t know why they were there, but when he saw the first copy of “Facts For Kids About the Titanic,” his face changed expressions. “That’s MY book!” Luke told his classmates and Cub Scout friends who had joined him. The book was released this week and is now available at the attraction gift shop.

Dems to voters: You may hate us, but GOP is worse By CHARLES BABINGTON Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON (AP) — With just six weeks to avoid a possible election catastrophe, Democrats are trying to limit the damage with a closing argument that’s more plea than platform: We know you voters are furious with us, but just let us explain why the Republicans would be worse. The strategy requires an autumn influx of voters willing to view the election as a choice between two imperfect parties — and imperfect candidates on

each ballot line — rather than as a chance to slap the Washington establishment that the public seems to dislike so deeply. But the Democrats admit the Republicans have a big emotional advantage with voters who are fed up with high unemployment, soaring deficits and what many see as an arrogant Congress and administration that rammed a revolutionary health care plan down their throats. If voters keep burning with the throw-the-bums-out fever that animated so many primaries, Democrats would be likely to

lose more than 40 House seats, costing them the majority and positioning Republicans to block virtually any Obama initiatives in the next two years. Losing the Senate majority, which would require a 10-seat Republican gain, is less likely. Democratic candidates want to convince these voters that no matter how much they hate the status quo, they would be worse off under a Republican Party that hasn’t learned from its mistakes and is lurching ever harder to the right. “This needs to be a choice,

not a referendum” on the Democratic-led Congress and Obama administration, said Erik Smith, a Democratic campaign adviser. President Barack Obama, campaigning for a Senate contender in Connecticut on Thursday, said of Republicans: “All they are going to be feeding us is anger and resentment and not a lot of new ideas. But that’s a potent force when people are scared and they’re hurting.” Democrats already have given up on keeping several seats, including a House seat

Republicans try to bring tea party enthusiasm into fold

Mosque opponents sue to stop construction MURFREESBORO, Tenn. — Opponents of a new mosque in Murfreesboro are asking for a temporary restraining order to stop construction at the site. A complaint filed in Rutherford County Chancery Court late Thursday names numerous county officials as defendants and claims they violated state law by not providing adequate notice of the meeting where the mosque was approved. The complaint also claims that a burial at the mosque site should have been the subject of a public meeting. County Attorney Jim Cope denied the claims. “We believe meeting notice was adequate and met the requirements of the law,” he said. Cope said a public hearing was not required to approve the site plan of the new Islamic Center of Murfreesboro because the land was already zoned for it. As to the burial, Cope said state law doesn’t govern private burials. “We think that it was done appropriately,” he said. Kevin Fisher, who organized a march against the mosque, is one of the plaintiffs. Fisher also organized a petition drive asking the County Commission to rescind approval of the mosque. The suit claims that Fisher and other plaintiffs “have suffered mental anguish, fear, anxiety, loss of reputation, loss of earnings and emotional distress.” Several calls to Fisher went straight to voicemail and he did not immediately return them. Along with the request for a temporary restraining order, the suit asks that the court declare void the Rutherford County Planning Commission’s approval of the mosque’s site plan in May. The suit does not ask the court to void other decisions made by the Planning Commission using the same notice procedures. Plaintiffs’ attorney Joe Brandon Jr. said he did not know what effect a favorable ruling might have on other decisions.

in Tennessee and a Senate seat in North Dakota. Party insiders aren’t quite in full panic mode. But they are intensely debating how to frame the final message, which candidates to help with last-minute spending, and where to focus ground troops. Senate campaign officials said they have made no final decisions about how to allocate money, but Democrat Brad Ellsworth is no longer airing TV ads in his bid to hold the Indiana Senate seat left open by retiring Democrat Evan Bayh. Republican nominee Dan Coats leads in polls there.

Few in Wash. city of are angry at acid hoax woman VANCOUVER, Wash. (AP) — The scars on her face were real, but her story about being splashed with acid was a horrific hoax. A day after Bethany Storro’s revelation turned the victim who drew worldwide sympathy into a curiosity and the object of much derision, few who banded together here to collect money for her medical bills were angry with her on Friday. They were just puzzled: What could bring the 28-year-old grocery store worker to disfigure herself in such a public way, and invent a tale about a black woman assaulting her with a cup of acid? Storro’s mother is “just worried about her mental health,” said friend John Pax, whose gym hosted a fundraiser that netted nearly $1,000. “But no one’s asked for their money back yet. No one’s angry. “We just worry about her,” he said. Some in the black community in this leafy city on the banks of the Columbia River were saddened that someone claiming to be a crime

victim had again placed an African-American in the role of villain. “I’m not angry at all, and the reason is that this has happened many times before, unfortunately,” said Margo Bryant, president of the Vancouver branch of the National Association for the Advancement of Colored People. Bryant praised the police, and said she didn’t hear of any blacks in the area being questioned. “At least (police) were willing to accept that this individual was not telling the truth, or not automatically accept she was telling the truth because she is white,” Bryant said. Police on Friday were planning to turn the case over to prosecutors. Storro could face charges of filing a false police report. Storro told police a stranger in a ponytail accosted her near a small park on Aug. 30, uttering the now-infamous words — “Hey, pretty girl, want something to drink?” — before scorching her face. Instantly, her tale grabbed the headlines.

And only grew when she appeared before reporters, her head bandaged and alongside her parents, to ask a nameless, faceless attacker: Why? Storro said it was only chance and, perhaps, divine providence that led her to purchase a pair of sunglasses just minutes earlier.

WASHINGTON — Can this political marriage survive? More than a half dozen tea party-backed candidates have captured Republican Senate nominations, and now the GOP is trying to bring their rebel supporters’ enthusiasm into the fold for November. Republicans have little choice but to at least put on a show of unity: Alienating the antiestablishment tea party could undercut GOP efforts to post big Senate gains, perhaps even win control outright. Judging by how quickly the GOP establishment embraced tea party nominees after earlier primaries in Kentucky, Colorado and Nevada, it may not take long for them to consider insurgent Christine

O’Donnell one of their own in Delaware. The state’s Senate primary was the freshest source of Republican division after O’Donnell’s stunning upset of nineterm Rep. Mike Castle. He hasn’t yet rallied behind her but others have, including once and maybe future presidential candidate Mitt Romney. And, after an initial curt reaction, Sen. John Cornyn’s committee to elect Senate Republicans made its support clear. “Let there be no mistake: The National Republican Senatorial Committee — and I personally as the committee’s chairman — strongly stand by all of our Republican nominees, including Christine O’Donnell in Delaware,” said the Texas lawmaker. He also sent her $42,000. The message: The GOP has heard the tea party and is listening.

ferent machines with different locks, but it seems to work in all of them,” Bohanan says. “I’d like to catch them just to see what kind of tool they’re using.” Bohanan may soon get his chance, if the suspicions of Wash House’s owner are correct. In addition to pictures of the thieves themselves, surveillance cameras at a laundromat in Pigeon Forge caught the cars they’re using, including a white Ford Mustang convertible from the mid1990s and an early-90s tan Ford Taurus. That may help wash the subjects up. “I think we’re going to see something on this in the next little bit,” says Steve Layman, director of the county’s Juvenile Detention Center and an owner of Wash House. “We’re working very hard to get these folks nailed down, to get them cornered.” Layman says he’s talked to laundromats in the cities that have been missing money since July. Like them, Layman says he’s also noticed some odd numbers when the machines were cashed out, but, also like them, he dismissed it as the regular ups and downs of business. “You just think, ‘Well, we haven’t had any business.’ You don’t think it was a burglary,” Layman says. “We’ve noticed our collections were down several times from where they should have been, but we just assumed business was off. We didn’t think it had been carried off.” All totalled Layman believes his business has been drained of “thousands of dollars,” including about $1,500 in two hits on recent Sundays, Aug. 29 and Sept.

It’s pretty smooth,” Layman says. “They’re opening these change boxes up, then putting them back so you think nothing’s happened. We’ve dealt with thieves before, but most of the time they’ve done damage, so we knew it had happened.” Layman says he’s seen evidence to suggest there may be more than just the three folks caught by the security cameras involved in the thefts.

Hurricane Karl heads inland VERACRUZ, Mexico (AP) — Hurricane Karl smashed into Mexico’s Gulf Coast on Friday, creating havoc in the major port city of Veracruz and forcing the country to shut down its only nuclear power plant and its central Gulf Coast oil platforms. Karl’s eye had passed Veracruz by early afternoon and sustained winds dropped to 90 mph (150 kph) as it headed southwest toward central Mexico, according to U.S. Hurricane Center. It had sustained winds of 115 mph (185 kph) when it hit land at midday about 10 miles (15 kilometers) northwest of the city. The storm caused widespread damage, knocking down hundreds of trees, billboards and power poles and upending cars, said Veracruz civil protection chief Isidro Cano Luna. Eighty percent of the city was without electricity. Cano said there had not been a storm like it since Hurricane Janet in September 1955. Local forecasters said the storm dumped 8 inches (215 millimeters) of rain in the city in the first 90 minutes. Flights into Veracruz were cancelled, and public transit was shut down. A stretch of coastal road farther north in Nautla was also washed out. The storm was expected to steadily weaken as it moved inland, but was still a Category 1 hurricane as it passed over the state capital of Jalapa, 60 miles (100 kilometers) from the coast.

STOCKS OF LOCAL INTEREST Name

By DAVID KOENIG and JOSHUA FREED AP Airlines Writers The biggest airline in the world will have the United name, Continental’s globe logo and potentially farreaching effects on air travel. Shareholders who approved combining the two companies Friday hope the new airline attracts more top-dollar corporate travelers with its larger network while reducing costs. Some industry watchers say the deal will lead to higher fares, but United and Continental say there’s enough competition from low-cost airlines to keep prices from rising. The vote for the deal topped 98 percent at both companies, which expect the $3 billion stock swap to close in the next two weeks after loose ends are tied up. Regulators in the U.S. and Europe have already signaled approval. With the voting over, the real work begins. Passengers won’t notice changes immediately, but behind the scenes the airlines will be combining two separate groups of highly unionized workers, merging reservations systems and putting new paint jobs on the planes. The companies expect it will be at least a year before federal authorities approve their request to fly as one airline.

Pope Benedict XVI arrives in the popemobile at St Stephen’s entrance to the Houses of Parliament in London, Friday. Pope Benedict XVI is on a four-day visit, the first ever state visit by a Pope to Britain.

Pope calm after six people nabbed in suspected terror plot LONDON (AP) — Police raided a garbage depot and arrested street cleaners in a suspected terror plot against Pope Benedict XVI on Friday. Undeterred, the pontiff stuck to his message, reaching across Britain’s religious and secular divide to demand a greater role for faith in public life. Despite the six arrests, the pope did not alter a schedule rich in symbolism in this officially Protestant country with a history of antiCatholicism: He prayed with the Archbishop of Canterbury and became the first pope to worship in Westminster Abbey. Benedict also addressed political, cultural and business leaders in Westminster Hall, for centuries the center of British political life, asserting “the legitimate role of religion in the public square.� Among those in attendance were Tony Blair — a prominent convert to Catholicism — as well

as former prime ministers Margaret Thatcher, John Major and Gordon Brown. Faith, the pope said, “is not a problem for legislators to solve, but a vital contributor to the national conversation.� Benedict was informed of the pre-dawn arrests while visiting a Catholic college, the first stop on the busy second day of his state visit. Five of the suspects were street cleaners arrested at a garbage depot in central London and a sixth was picked up later in the day. All six were arrested “on suspicion of the commission, preparation or instigation of acts of terrorism.� Police said they ranged in age from 26 to 50, and media reports said some were Algerian, though authorities would not confirm that. Police said they received information about a potential threat against the pope overnight, prompting the arrests under Britain’s Terrorism Act.

Stocks end with meager gains, keeping rally going By STEPHEN BERNARD AP Business Writer NEW YORK — Stocks gave up most of their gains to end slightly higher Friday, extending a September rally that has slowed as the month wore on. The Dow Jones industrial tacked on 13 points, while the Standard & Poor’s 500 Index edged up less than a point. Both traded close to the breakeven level all day. The Dow and other major indexes logged their third-straight weekly advance. The market started out on an up note following surprisingly strong profit news late Thursday from technology leaders Oracle Corp. and Research in Motion Ltd., which makes BlackBerrys. Technology and industrial shares were broadly higher, though energy companies were weak following a drop in crude oil. A decline in a measure of consumer confidence from the University of Michigan/Reuters also kept a lid on buying. Gold set another record and Treasury prices edged higher in a sign that investors remain cautious.

The Standard & Poor’s 500 Index, the measure used most widely by professional investors, briefly edged above a technical trading threshold, but not enough to convince analysts that the market is ready to move sharply higher. Stocks have been on a nearly unbroken upward march in September, driving the S&P up 7.3 percent. Traders watch such technical barriers closely for clues about where the market might go next. Right now the key level for the S&P 500 is 1,131, its intraday high for June 21 and the top end of its recent trading range. It barely peeked over that level Friday but failed to stay above it, a sign that the market needs more fuel, in the form of good news on the economy or corporate profits, before moving higher again. Uri Landesman, president of Platinum Partners, said if the S&P can rally past 1,131, it could surge even further in the next couple of weeks. But if it cannot significantly eclipse that level and falls back below 1,115, roughly its low for the week, “we could go to 1,000 pretty fast,� Landesman said.

GM bringing back 480 workers By LUCAS L. JOHNSON II Associated Press Writer SPRING HILL — General Motors is bringing back hundreds of idled workers to build a new generation of four-cylinder engines at the Tennessee plant where the Saturn brand was launched two decades ago. But GM North America President Mark Reuss said production of any new car at Spring Hill remains uncertain — much like the economy. “As we rebuild the company, we have to feel comfortable about where the economy is and people have to have confidence in the economy and

that will dictate how we reinvest and where we reinvest,” Reuss said. About 480 workers will be recalled as GM plans to invest $483 million to build the next generation of the company’s Ecotec four-cylinder engine. The plant already builds three fourcylinder engines. The automaker laid off about 2,000 workers at Spring Hill last year and about 800 of those workers have relocated to GM plants in other states. About 1,000 retired, active and laid off workers gathered Friday to hear from GM officials, Gov. Phil Bredesen and others. Also present were U.S. Sens. Bob Corker and

Lamar Alexander and U.S. Reps. Marsha Blackburn and Lincoln Davis. Bredesen sounded an optimistic note about the future. “This is such a good plant,” he said. “As the automotive market comes back, there’s no question in my mind that this Spring Hill plant has a role to play in the future.” A handful of boos erupted from the workers when Corker showed up. They apparently were still upset over Corker’s opposition to bailouts for the auto industry and his push to get the United Auto Workers to agree to wage and benefit concessions.

World quote roundup “There are those who would advocate that the voice of religion be silenced, or at least relegated to the purely private sphere. There are those who argue that the public celebration of festivals such as Christmas should be discouraged, in the questionable belief that it might somehow offend those of other religions or none. These are worrying signs of a failure to appreciate not only the rights of believers to freedom of conscience and freedom of religion, but also the legitimate role of religion in the public square.” — Pope Benedict XVI on how religion was increasingly being marginalized from political decision-making

Three Cheers Park hooks a Troutman to lead major programs

Recession beneficial to the NFL Take it from me because I see the Nielsen television ratings every day: NFL football is riding a huge wave of popularity in America. In the first week of play, the ratings are up by double digits, and the games have even taken some viewers away from my news program, which is a complete and utter outrage. Why are more people watching football? The first reason is economic: It’s free. Because of the recession, fewer people are going out for entertainment. Instead, they grab popcorn and a beverage and watch huge men run into each other. Simple and inexpensive. The second reason expands on the simplicity factor. We are living in a time of incredible spin and gross dishonesty in the public arena. Propagandists are everywhere, and they’re spitting out so much bilge it is sometimes hard to even breathe. Football is an honest game. The toughest, smartest team usually wins. There is something pure in the presentation. As this week’s primary votes prove, Americans are fed up with b.s. Most of us understand that we are being used by powerful forces beyond our control. The country slid into recession because greedy fat cats decided to create risky mortgage schemes, and guys like Congressman Barney Frank, who were supposed to be watching out for bogus investments, allowed it to happen. Let me ask you something: Had you ever heard of subprime mortgages before President Bush told us they had ruined the economy? I’m in the news business, and I had no idea this giant con was in play. And if I had to bet, I’d say Bush and Frank didn’t understand the situation, either. Thus, many Americans have developed a bunker mentality and are being very cautious with their money and time. The folks are walking away from flimflam artists and are throwing the bums out with their votes. They want a simple, understandable message. And football is one of the things Americans understand. The downside, of course, is the brutality. NFL injuries are reaching catastrophic levels. Three-hundredpound guys running up and down 100-yard fields will yield some brutal collisions. The danger of the game is part of its attraction, and there’s no doubt that a well-played contest is a tremendous escape from the sorry real world. The worse things get the more escape mechanisms are needed. Welcome to the NFL. But the league should be careful. There is a move to expand the schedule to 18 games from 16. That would lead to even more injuries and carnage. Also, many teams have priced tickets so high that working class folks can’t afford to go to the stadium. Nobody likes to be excluded from something because of money. So football is flying right now, one of the few beneficiaries of the recession. But what goes up can also come down. In a hurry. — 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. (C)2009 Bill O’Reilly.

Jeff Troutman should take to his new job like a fish to water. Troutman has recently been named to oversee the Great Smoky Mountains National Park’s natural and cultural resources. And with 28 years in National Park Service leadership and resource management, Troutman literally has a mountain of experience. A native of Bristol, he is a Duke University graduate. Since 2003 he was chief of natural and cultural resources at the NPS’s Southeast Utah Group. He has also worked at national parks in Alaska, Delaware, Pennsylvania, The Everglades and Cape Lookout. Included in Troutman’s responsibilities are fisheries, fire, wildlife and vegetation management, inventorying and monitoring air, water and biological resources. Park Superintendent Dale Ditmanson had high praise, calling him ideal to “help the Park handle new challenges on the horizon.” It appears they got the right man.

There are benevolent civic organizations and community-minded businesses from one end of the county to the other. Whether helping the needy, sponsoring a youth athletic team or raise money for a specific disease, there are no bad causes. Today, the spotlight’s on Sevierville’s Food City, which this week presented a check for $56,807 to Sevier school from its School Bucks program. Each school in the system registered for the program and was assigned a link. When family and friends shopped, port of the money benefited their school. Sevier County High School received the largest portion, $11,800. Pi Beta Phi Elementary was second with $5,590, followed by Pigeon Forge Primary with $4,445, Northview Primary with $3,845 and New Center Elementary with $3,614. Other schools received lesser portions. Food City is to be commended for providing a lot of educational groceries.

New library’s teen center has inappropriate behavior, language

Editor: The other day when gathering my children after their trip the new King Family Library, I was disappointed to see the “Teen Center” misused and being abused by local school children from the area. I spoke to several staff members of the library with concerns about the language and conduct as I entered the teen room. I had witnessed several out-of-control boys jumping from the brand new furniture, as though they were outside on the play-

Public forum ground still at school. I heard foul language, and saw inappropriate behavior between a few teens. I was given the name and number of K.C. Williams, who is the head person at the library. Parents of these children should be aware this facility is not a drop-off baby sitter, and if your children are using this free service, your children should have some respect. When speaking to the very nice ladies who work at the library, you could see the hurt in their faces and hear it as they spoke out about the treatment these children give to this facility. It is sad that the children here in Sevier County have a place that

is awesome beyond measures, but yet have no respect for it. We as parents need to take a stand and help the library seek some way of controlling this behavior. What happened to the days when the library was a hang-out, but the children and teens had respect for it. As a mother of three and a local person who frequently goes to the library, my children will not use the Teen Center until some sort of control is brought to that area. Stacy Day Sevierville

Gibbs deals G-P its 1st loss of 2010 Much-improved Eagles squad hits Highlanders with crushing 52-14 blow By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer GATLINBURG — There’s still Fulton and Austin-East to look forward to. Friday night the No. 4 Class 4A state-ranked Gibbs Eagles came to town and displayed their dominance with a 52-14 win over District 3-AA rival GatlinburgPittman Highlanders, the No. 8 Class 3A state-ranked team, at Hammonds Field. With the 38-point loss, the Highlanders (3-1, 0-1 in District 3-AA) will likely drop out of the top-10 in the state AP poll. But that’s not the team’s biggest concern right now. G-P’s playoff aspirations suffered a serious blow, even though it was just the Blue-andGold’s first district contest of the season. “We didn’t play well, and we never really gave ourselves the opportunity to play well,” said 39th-year G-P coach Benny Hammonds. “It was very surprising. I thought we were ready to play, and we had a good week of practice. “We just didn’t win it on the line of scrimmage, and that’s where we thought we might have an advantage. But we sure didn’t. We got worn out on the

G-P senior Ron Durbin showed some heart and returned the second-half opening kick 53 yards to the Gibbs 46. But even after a three-andout punt to the coffin corner by Highlanders senior Jeremy Hibbard left the Eagles with a 98-yard field, eight plays later Gibbs struck paydirt again when senior quarterback Chris Legg took it on a keeper up the gut for a two-yard score with 7:01 in the quarter. Sophomore kicker Ryan Hunley — who displayed his leg strength and accuracy all night by kicking 6-of-9 kickoffs into the end zone for touchbacks, converting 7-of-7 PATs on the night and drilling a 37-yard field goal — made it 45-7, and the TSSAA 35-point mercy clock rule kicked into effect, shortening the remainder of the evening. After Gibbs built a 17-0 lead by the end of the first quarter, the Highlanders showed some signs of life and looked for a moment as if they’d make it a game. With Gibbs threatening with a 3rd-and-7 at the G-P 9, Highlanders junior Brandon Merritt stepped in front of Legg’s only pass of the game and returned the interception 55 yards to the Eagles 40 with 10:54 in the half. Three plays later, G-P senior QB Tye Marshall connected deep Cobey Hitchcock/The Mounntain Press with the streaking Durbin down G-P’s Walter Barber hurdles a Gibbs defender for some extra first-quarter yards in the the right side.

Sevier County’s Brandon Tinker made an incredible catch on this second quarter TD from Danny Chastain. PREP FOOTBALL

Back on track: Bears smash CCHS By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — The Sevier County Smoky Bears pummeled IMAC-rival Cocke County Friday night 46-6, and it could have been a lot worse. In addition to scoring six TDs and a pair of safeties against the Fighting Cocks, the Bears had a pair of touchdowns called back. All in all, coach Steve Brewer was pleased to see his offense get their groove back. “I was pleased to see us make some plays,” the coach said. “I think we got a little bit of our footing back offensively. We’ve still got some work to do, but it was good to see us make plays and points on the board.” The Purple and White defense was the team’s primary catalyst in the game, however, as time after time the Bears stuffed any offense the Roosters tried to mount. In fact the Bears allowed only 62 total yards to the Big Red — not bad considering Cocke County’s first play from scrimmage went for 39 yards.

Sevier County’s offensive machine started the night off with a bang, as four of their first six plays went for over 13 yards. Long passes to Bryant Gilson and Dillon Cate, combined with two snappy runs from Dakota Cogdill got the team deep into Cocke County territory, but a untimely motion penalty helped stall the team’s first drive. But after the defense forced a quick three-and-out, the Bears found their rhythm and rode a 24-yard Bubba Floyd carry and Bryant Gilson catch to the goal line, where Floyd would punch it in for the game’s first score. Six minutes later the Bears were knocking on the door again, after another pair of nice Cogdill runs had them at the Cocke County 22. Quarterback Danny Chastain found a streaking Brandon Tinker approaching the end zone and fired, resulting in the team’s catch of the year so far. In a grab that resembled David Tyree’s touchdown haul for the Giants in Super Bowl XLII, Tinker used his head to hold onto the pass as he crashed to the ground. The referee raised his arms, and

the senior had his first varsity touchdown. A PAT from kicker Jared Baxter made the score 14-0 with 11 mintues left in the second quarter. After the team’s next drive ended in a fumble, the Smoky Bears defense took it upon themselves to light the scoreboard. Senior defensive back Josh Johnson stepped up on a Jared McGaha pass attempt inside Purple territory and picked it off, taking it 64 yards to the house. After the PAT the score stood at 21-0. Before halftime the Bears would add another score as Chastain would hook up with Gilson for two long receptions, the last a 13-yard touchdown. The Smoky Bears’ first score of the second half would come on a Fighting Cocks botched snap on a punt — resulting in a safety. Just a play later SCHS offense converted their 1st-and-10 into a 58-yard score as Chastain hit receiver Brett Pippin on a crossing route in front of several CCHS See SMOKY BEARS, Page A10

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. — A fourth inning two-run homer by Jeff Corsaletti was the difference for the Jacksonville Suns in Game Three of the Southern League Championship Series, as the Suns blanked the Tennessee Smokies 2-0 on Friday night at the Baseball Grounds of Jacksonville. The victory puts Jacksonville one win away from their second consecutive Southern League title, as the Suns now lead the best-offive series two games to one. Corsaletti’s blast in the fourth inning was the only blemish against Smokies starter Trey McNutt. McNutt pitched six innings while giving up two runs on five hits in his second postseason start. Jacksonville’s Brad Hand took the victory after another sharp performance in the postseason. For the second straight start, Hand did not allow any runs, and he only scattered three hits to the Smokies in seven innings on the mound. Blake Lalli was the only Tennessee batter to record a multi-hit game, as he had two of the Smokies’ three hits. The Suns’ bullpen followed in Hand’s effort, with Garrett Parcell and Sandy Rosario both tossing scoreless frames in the eighth and ninth to preserve the Jacksonville win. Jacksonville’s first opportunity to win their fifth Southern League title is on Saturday night in Game Four at the Baseball Grounds. The Smokies will start right-hander Craig Muschko while the Suns will counter with Jose Rosario. The game begins at 7:35 p.m., and fans can listen to the contest on the Smokies Radio Network.

Falcons fly, Tigers grow

Ogle gets in the game at Clemson

By RUSTY ODOM Sports Correspondent KNOXVILLE – The Pigeon Forge Tigers did something for the first time under fourth-year head coach Lee Hammonds Friday night. Though they fell short of a 22-7 contest with Knoxville’s Fulton Falcons, the Tigers showed that they could compete with the one of the best teams their district has to offer. The Tigers are no longer a team to be overlooked in District 3-AA. “Obviously you don’t like to lose, but I can see our kids starting to believe in themselves. We really brought the fight to this Fulton team. I think we learned something tonight,“ Hammonds said after the game. Last season Fulton routed the Tigers 48-7 in Pigeon Forge. Three quick touchdowns in the first quarter put that game away early. But a different Pigeon Forge team took the field on Friday night. Though the Tigers’ starters were outsized by the favored Falcons, Pigeon Forge won the battle of wills in the first half. “If we would have strung a few more plays together on offense in the first half, we could have won this thing. I knew we would had a chance if we kept it close,� said Hammonds. Fulton’s first drive stalled into a 4th-and-8, but a screen pass to wide receiver Brandon Taylor resulted in a 34-yard touchdown. The Tiger defense stiffened again after the mistake to keep Fulton out of the end zone on the ensuing two-point conversion attempt. The rest of the half was all defense. The first play of the second quarter saw a halfback pass from Fulton’s Demetrius Thomas that fell incomplete. The Falcons had gone into their bag of tricks early, admitting to all in attendance that this wasn’t the same Pigeon Forge team from years past. The Falcons had a ballgame on their hands. The result of the play put the Falcons in punt formation deep in their own territory. Pigeon Forge was set to receive the ball in great field position, then an old enemy visited the Tigers. A roughing the punter penalty negated the momentum caused by the strong defensive stand, and Fulton was rewarded a first down. But the Tigers continued their stout defensive play. Pigeon Forge’s Cody Davis and Shane Sharp each made brilliant open field tackles in the opening frames, frustrating the Fulton faithful. But they weren’t the only Tigers to help contain Fulton’s potent offense. Patrick Barbieri took Falcon quarterback Ben Winters’ helmet off with a first half hit and Coty Young spent much of his time in the Falcon’s backfield. The defense stood its strongest when Devin Boyd and Daniel Abbott crunched Winters for a huge sack late in the second quarter. Sophomore Austin McCarter returned the fol-

lowing punt to the Fulton 24. As the half wound inside a minute, Pigeon Forge found the red zone for the first time, but a slant pass from Cory Fox found the hands of a Fulton defensive back. Fox never gave up on the play, however, and stopped the speedy cornerback at the Tiger 35. The play proved to be a hallmark for the entire Tiger team. On the following play, Migel Coello picked a pass of his own after both defensive ends got pressure on the quarterback. Coello was stopped just outside of the end zone as the buzzer blew for the half and the scoreboard read 6-0. A surprise onside kick almost ended up in the Tigers hands for the opening kick of the second half. Fulton countered with a trick play of their own when Bart Satterfield took a reverse for 16 yards. Thomas finished the drive two plays later on a 25-yard sweep to the left side. The two-point conversion pass to Taylor was successful to give Fulton a two score lead 14-0. Thomas added a 74-yard score on the first play of Fulton’s next drive. But the Tigers answered on their next series. Chase Travis had struggled to find openings all evening until he finally broke free for 30 yards and gave Pigeon Forge their first score with 2:20 to go in the third. With the score at 22-7 and still in reach for the Tigers, another onside kick went awry that could have been recovered by Pigeon Forge. Again, Pigeon Forge wasn’t done. McCarter forced a fumble late in the third and Sharp made the play of the year so far for the Tigers when he intercepted a redzone pass with one hand. Both of these plays came with Fulton hoping to put the game away to no avail. The Tigers threatened to score as the clock wound down but an injury to Fox’s throwing hand stalled the hopes of a complete comeback. But for the Tigers, this game was about the process. Hammonds has preached “learning how to win� to his team since he’s been at Pigeon Forge. His young Tigers squad took a step towards that Friday night against a team that boasts three state championships in the last eight years, even in defeat. “It’s part of the process,� explained Hammonds. “Last week we went into halftime with a 28-0 lead against Cosby and we wanted them to learn how to play with a lead. “Tonight we talked about only being down 6-0 at the half and coming out strong in the second half. Fulton made some big plays in the third quarter but our kids never quit and that’s the biggest battle for us as coaches. Our kids gave a continued effort in this ballgame and I think they are beginning to understand that if you do that you can play with teams like Fulton.� mpsports@themountainpress.com

By JASON DAVIS and COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Staff CLEMSON, S.C. — Hard work and persistence paid off for former GatlinburgPittman Highlander Taylor Ogle last Saturday. The 6-5, 195-pound redshirt freshman and former G-P standout earned some playing time in mop-up duty of Clemson University’s 58-21 drubbing of Presbyterian. “At halftime, Coach (Dabo) Swinney came up to me and told me and my buddy, another redshirt freshman, Donny McElveen that we would split series in the 4th quarter,� Ogle said by e-mail. “I couldn’t wait for my opportunity to play.� Ogle said the third quarter slowed to a crawl in his anticipation to get in the game. “It seemed like the third quarter took forever and the fourth quarter flashed by in an instant,� Ogle relayed. “Words can’t describe what it felt like to listen to the announcer say my name entering the game at quarterback and seeing my picture on the Jumbotron. I thought about G-P and all the nights at Hammonds Field and how far away it felt.� On the field Ogle performed admirably. “My first series started off with a couple of handoffs, nothing special,� he said. “I just wanted to make the right reads and calls and handle the snap. Some of the fans had left, but still well over 50,000 people were watching, and I wanted to execute well.

Taylor Ogle prepares to throw in Clemson’s game with Presbyterian last week. The Tigers won 58-21. “On third down, coach Swinney signaled in a screen to the left. When I went up to the ball and started my cadence, the Bandit linebacker walked up to the line showing blitz. I knew that if I could get the ball off in time, it was going to be a touchdown. “The linebacker came through clean and got a very good hit on me as I threw my first pass in a college game. Unfortunately I didn’t get the ball off in time and I overthrew my receiver. “Watching the game tape the next day made me sick to my stomach. It was six points if the ball was a foot lower. There was so much adrenaline flowing, I didn’t even feel the hit.� Ogle’s second series

scout team for the Tigers is providing invaluable experience. “Not having any reps with the ones or twos, to me being the scout team quarterback is the next best thing,� he said. As for his experience in general, Ogle said he’s loving it. “All my coaches are really great men, and I love it here,� he said. Ogle said he’ll return to Gatlinburg next weekend and bringing along teammates Tajh Boyd (a onetime Tennessee QB commitment) and Tyler Felt. “We are all excited to see our friends at G-P play under the lights on Friday,� Ogle said. “Good Luck G-P!� mpsports@themountainpress.com

down with 10:23 in the half. Merritt’s PAT kick cut it to 17-7, but that’s as good as it would get for the Highlanders. The Eagles responded with an eight-play, 69-yard drive capped by senior running back Andy Hibbert’s four-yard run up the middle with 6:48 in the half. Hunley’s PAT made it 24-7 Gibbs, and the Highlanders had been broken. The frustrating part of the Gibbs scoring drive was that the defense had forced a 4th-and-4, but were then drawn offsides by a hard snap count by Breeden, extending the Eagles drive. “That fourth down was a big play for them,� said Hammonds. “But it seemed like they did everything right ..., and we didn’t play well at all.� Hibbert finished the night with 183 rushing yards and three rushing touchdowns. As coach Hammonds noted, Gibbs dominated the line of scrimmage to a tune of 446 yards rushing on 50 carries, while limiting the Highlanders to 110 yards rushing on 24 attempts. The Eagles threw just one pass in the game. G-P senior running back Walter Barber led the team with 80 tough yards on 11 carries, and senior back Dillon Reagan added 35 yards on nine attempts. Marshall completed 8-of-

Ron Durbin dives for a first down. Durbin scored both of GatlinburgPittman’s TDs on the night. 15 passing for 78 yards and two scores, but he also tossed his first two interceptions of the season. Durbin again led the team in receiving with 60 yards on five catches with two going for scores. The Highlanders will look to rebound from the Gibbs disappointment with next Friday’s non-district home contest against visiting Unicoi County. But it’s going to take a good week of practice for the Highlanders to regroup after the loss to the Eagles. “We’ve got six more ball games, but we just didn’t compete ... and that’s what’s disappointing about it,� said Hammonds. “I felt like we were a little tight in the dressing room ..., and maybe nerves got to us a

came with something he knows well. “My second series ended with something that I had practiced a lot at G-P — me taking a knee in the Victory formation,� Ogle said. The week since Ogle’s first appearance for Clemson has been a interesting one. “This year, I have been charged with running the scout team offense,� Ogle said. “This week I was simulating Cam Newton, Auburn’s 6-6, 255-pound star quarterback. “Coach Swinney said in his press conference that I had his height down pat but was closer to 155 than 255 or something like that.

little bit. “We just never loosened up and let ourselves play like we’re capable of playing. But at the same time, you’ve got to give a lot of credit to Gibbs. That’s a good football team, better than we thought. “We had a good week’s practice, and our preparation has been great, and I really felt good about it until right before kickoff. When

we came out of the dressing room, I could just sense us being tight.

defenders. After a move Pippin hit the corner and it was lights out. Pippin, the fastest Bear and SCHS’s top 100-meter man in track, blazed past the defense with a bead on the end zone, making the score 37-0 following the extra-point kick. The younger Bears got into the scoring action early in the fourth quarter. A fumble recovery by sophomore Dillon Cate at the CCHS 30 gave way to the Bears offense and running back Luke Trentham. Trentham took just four carries to go the 30 yards to the end zone and bull his way into the Purple and White checkerboards. Another bad snap deep in the Fighting Cocks territory added another safety to the scoreboard late, and gave the Bears their 45th and 46th points of the night.

The Cocks did manage a score late as starting QB McGaha found receiver Tim Maloney for a 37-yard strike on the Bears’ younger defenders. “We got a lot of people some playing time, and we were doing some good things,� Brewer said following the game. “We made some plays defensively, and I thought, outside of a couple of plays, the defense played well all night and kept them bottled up.� A side note to the story would be the outstanding kick returns of sophomore Logan McCarter. Though they were both called back because of blocks in the back behind the play, the 10th grader made two amazing returns for touchdowns — one a 75-yard kick-off return TD and the other a 73-yard punt return. “He showed what he’s capable of,� Brewer said. “I hate it for him, because he made two great efforts on those returns to score

that got called back. But I think we found somebody there that can make some plays for us. He’s young, but he’ll step up there and catch it, and you can see what he can do with it when he does.� Cogdill ended the night with having gashed the CCHS defense for 105 yards on just eight carries to lead the team. Chastain was 10-of-13 passing for 182 yards and three scores. Bryant Gilson had five grabs for 67 yards and a TD, while Pippin caught two balls for 65 yards and a score. Ronnie Homerding led the Bears’ vicious defense with eight tackles, including three for loss and a sack. Josh Norris was next with six stops. Thomas Hamilton added a sack. The Bears will host Morristown West next Thursday for the MyVLT2 TV game of the week.

SEYMOUR — They say that football is a game of inches, and that was certainly true at Benton Householder Field Friday night as the Patriots of Jefferson County topped the Seymour Eagles 10-0. In a game where three yards and a cloud of dust counted as a big play and most drives were shorter than my brother in law’s when he plays off the back tees, the Patriots had just a little bit more offense than the Eagles, and they came away the hard-fought victory. “We’ve just got to get some points,� Eagles coach Jim Moore after the game. “We keep shooting ourselves in the foot.� Seymour’s first possession ended in a punt after three runs netted eight yards. While the offense came out struggling, the defense came out aggressive and active. On Jefferson County’s second possession, Kevin Kennedy made a nice defensive play against the receiver, breaking up a pass and forcing the Patriots into a second and long which two plays later forced them to punt the ball away. Seymour’s time with the ball was brief, as they lost a fumble on first down, and the Patriots had good field position at the Eagle 35. Once again the Blue and Gold defense stepped up, forcing the Patriots to try and miss a 47-yard field goal. The teams traded punts and ended the first quarter in a scoreless tie. The second quarter was more of the same, with neither team able to mount any real drives until Patriots running back Trey Dodson took the option pitch from QB Bristoe Bible 42 yards for a

touchdown. Jose Esparza’s kick was good and the Patriots had a seven-point lead. When the first half came to a close, Seymour had managed only one rushing first down, and none by passing. Seymour LB Outside of the big Kevin Kennedy play, their defense had smothered the Patriots offense, giving up only four first downs. The second half was more grind-it-out football, as neither offense could build any momentum. As the third quarter drew to a close, the Patriots began to move the ball behind Bible’s passing to Dodson and Evan McFalls, but the Eagle defense once again rose up and prevented the touchdown, led by the tackling of Ashton Satterfield and Eric White. The Patriots were held to three points as Esparza kicked a 19 yard field goal. That ended the scoring as the Patriots came away with a 10-point win. “The defense played well, but we’ve got a long way to go offensively,� said Moore. “We’ve had five games, you know. There’s no excuses.� Moore went on to praise his team’s effort and heart. �They played hard, all of them. They always play hard. It’s just that we don’t execute the little things. “ Seymour is now 1-1 in District 2-AAA, and they have a week off before the Sevier County Smoky Bears come to visit for an IMAC and county rivalry. mpsports@themountainpress.com

Northview Middle Report: Former Vols coach knew improves to 5-0 of hostesses’ visit to S.C. prospects

KODAK — The Cougars of Northview Middle improved to an impressive 5-0 mark this season with a 32-7 win over rival Seymour Thursday night. The Cougars started the game out with a bang as QB Jake Grosser went 70 yards for a TD on the second play from scrimmage to make the score 6-0. After a pair of nonproductive possessions for both teams, a Grosser forced fumble recovered by teammate Austin Jenkins set up a 65-yard TD rumble by Gage Hamby to put the score at 12-0. After a brief Seymour drive into Cougar territory, Northview’s defense buckled down and got the ball back for their offense. After a block in the back penalty by the Cougars the team was pinned back at their own 10-yard line. Hamby picked up 30 yards on a reverse to get the team out of danger, and the next play Grosser scrambled 60 yards on a QB draw for the team’s third TD with 6:40 remaining in the first half. By halftime though Seymour had cut the lead to 18-7 with a passing touchdown of their own.

On Seymour’s first possession of the second half they marched into Cougars’ territory before Jenkins tipped a pass, allowing teammate Grosser to complete the interception. On the next possession, Northview used their running game to grind eight minutes off the clock and score yet another TD, as Zack Sauls found the end zone. A two-point conversion pass from Grosser to Jenkins made the score 26-7. A screen pass from Jenkins to teammate Joseph Dreyer moments later set up a Grosser QB draw TD to make the score 32-7, its eventual final. The Cougars’ defense was led by J.D. Griffin, who racked up six tackles. Hamby, Rateike and Dreyer each added five stops. Next up for the Cougars is Strawberry Plains’ Rush Strong School. The game is set for Tuesday, Sept. 28. All local middle school teams are encouraged to submit their game information to The Mountain Press at mpsports@themountainpress.com.

KNOXVILLE (AP) — A newspaper reports David Reaves, Tennessee’s quarterbacks coach, knew about the two hostesses that visited two recruits in South Carolina that same night but didn’t alert the university’s compliance office. The Knoxville News Sentinel reported Friday that Byrnes High School coach Chris Miller said he called Reaves the night of Sept. 25, 2009. Miller told the quarterbacks coach that Dahra Johnson and Lacey Pearl Earps of Orange Pride had contacted two players verbally committed to Tennessee. “I called Reaves and told him. ... He acted like he didn’t know anything about it,� Miller told the

newspaper. UT received a letter of inquiry last week from the N C A A notifying David Reaves the university about an investigation into the entire athletic department. NCAA rules require coaches to report any possible violations to their school’s compliance office immediately. But the newspaper cites an anonymous source that Tennessee’s compliance department did not learn of the potential violation until December and that Reaves did not say anything about the hostesses’

contact with the players when told by school officials about the incident. Reaves refused to comment when contacted by the newspaper. “They (NCAA) have made it abundantly clear that I can’t comment on the investigation,� Reaves said. “They said that would be the worst thing I could do.� Tennessee self-reported six minor recruiting violations by Lane Kiffin and his staff during their one-year tenure and in December acknowledged cooperating with an NCAA investigation into actions by the school’s Orange Pride athletics hostess program. The NCAA has interviewed several current and former Tennessee

coaches and recruits into possible recruiting violations. Kiffin’s brother-in-law, Reaves now is quarterbacks coach and passing game coordinator at New Mexico.

MIDDLE SCHOOL FOOTBALL

Middle School Bears blank Mountaineers 42-0 SEVIERVILLE — It wasn’t a fun visit to Sevierville for the Heritage Mountaineers Middle School football team Thursday night. The Sevier County Middle School Bears gave the Heritage squad all they wanted and then some, piling on 42 points while holding the Mountaineers scoreless. The Bears scored on their first possession as QB Deuce Wallace found Allan Silva for a 40-yard TD strike. On Heritage’s first series, the Bears’ Donovan Hayes intercepted a pass, but Sevier County returned the favor moments later, returning the ball to the Mountaineers. In the second quarter the Bears found the end zone again, however, as Wallace hit Davante Matthews on a 45-yard pass play to inside the Heritage 10. From there Connor Bailey plunged in for the score. A Wallace to Austin Pope pass put the score at 14-0. A reverse to Silva got the Bears’ their third TD of the night before

half, and a two-point run by Bailey put the talley to 22-0 by half. Silva added a punt return TD in the third quarter again followed by a Bailey two-pointer. The Bears capped off a successful 8th Grade Night with two more touchdowns as Hunter Miniard and Cody “Pee Wee� Colburn both added scores to give the team the 42-0 win. “Tonight our guys did not let the festivities of 8th grade night take away their focus,� coach Jim Bingham said. “We have the biggest game of the year next week as we travel to Alcoa, so we have to have a good week of practice next week. This team is capable of being a really good football team but we have to have everyone on the same page in order to get there. Area middle school coaches are encouraged to submit their game information to The Mountain Press for publication. Send info to mpsports@themountainpress.com.

Advice

Mother finding few opportunities for blind son

Zits

Blondie

Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: I am writing about my 18-year-old son, “Jacob,” who is blind. He is a bright, intelligent young man who lives on his computer. All his friends are visually impaired. The few people he knows at school don’t socialize with him outside of class. All his other friends are only online. I have watched him go from being an outgoing person to becoming a withdrawn young man. Jacob would like to get a job, but there aren’t many people willing to take a chance on a blind teenager. I thought he might be able to volunteer, but where does he start? We live in an area without bus service, and there is no way for him to get anywhere during the day. I can’t drive him because I’m a single mother and take public transportation myself. I contacted an association for the blind, and they were no help. What do other families do? — Concerned Mom in Pennsylvania Dear Mom: The American Foundation for the Blind (afb.org) and the National Industries for the Blind (nib.org) have information about county associations, as well as job training and employment opportunities for the visually impaired. The Pennsylvania Association for the Blind (pablind. org) has links to local organizations, and you can ask Jacob’s ophthalmologist for guidance. The American Foundation for the Blind also offers support for families through their website at familyconnect. org. We hope at least one of these wonderful organizations can help you and your son. Dear Annie: I

come from a large family. Between birthdays, religious holidays and graduations, there are lots of family events. My family and I always make an effort to attend these milestones, sometimes traveling six hours or more. The problem is, when I host similar events for my two children, my relatives feel their attendance is optional. If one of their kids has a soccer game, they don’t bother to come. My kids are just as busy as theirs, but we make it a priority to celebrate major occasions such as a high school graduation. We feel it is important to get to know one’s extended family, including grandparents, aunts, uncles and cousins. Three siblings and most of my nieces and nephews didn’t attend my daughter’s high school graduation because of minor sporting activities. My 26-year-old niece told me she couldn’t take time off from work, yet a week later, managed to take two days off to visit her uncle’s vacation home. I have had only two major events for my kids in the past 18 years, but it seems my family members come only if nothing better is going on. I am hurt by this, but my siblings say I am too sensitive. Should I be teaching my children that a weekend soccer game is more important than celebrating our family members’ special times? — Last

t o d ay ’ s p u z z l e

Tina’s Groove

Resort Sibling Dear Sibling: Relatives consider some events more important than others — a high school graduation might strike them as meaningful only to the parents, but they wouldn’t dream of skipping your child’s wedding. And in a large family, it is difficult to attend everything. We think it’s wonderful that you show up for all these events, but it is unrealistic to expect your siblings to do the same. Please let it go. Dear Annie: I would like to add my thoughts to the discussion of taking photos of a deceased person. My father died last year. I was only 29, and it was deeply traumatic for me. I chose to take a few discreet photos of him in his casket. I cannot imagine ever wanting to go back and look at them, but I also realized I wouldn’t have a second chance if I changed my mind. There were only a few family members present when I took the photos, and I explained my reasoning to them. No one raised any objections. Seventeen months later, I have no regrets. — Cleveland, Tenn.
