PIGEON FORGE — A local man was in jail for his birthday Wednesday after racking up two DUI charges within a few hours. Teddy Keith Campbell, of 539 Rushbranch Road in Pigeon Forge, turned

43 Wednesday. He might not have been able to celebrate much, however, because he spent most of the day in the Sevier County Jail. In the first incident, police said at least three callers had contacted dispatchers about his erratic driving. He allegedly struck another car in the parking lot outside the Five Guys restaurant at about 5:34 p.m. Tuesday and drove away. Officers found him a short distance away; his car was damaged in the wreck. Patrolman Aaron Clark gave him a field sobriety test. Campbell failed the test, and admitted to taking two Xanax pills a few

hours earlier. Campbell was taken to the Sevier County Jail, where he was charged with DUI and leaving the scene of an accident. He was released after posting $1,000 in bail. Shortly after midnight Wednesday, Patrolman Brad Lowe, also of Pigeon Forge Police Department, responded to a all about a wreck at the intersection of Lost Branch Road and West Mill Creek Road and found Campbell behind the wheel of the vehicle.. “Mr. Campbell’s speech was slow and See birthday, Page A4

GATLINBURG — Members of the Gatlinburg Fire Department visited Pi Beta Phi Elementary School on Wednesday to give students a lesson in fire safety in honor of Fire Prevention Week. “We come every year, and they get a five-day program,” said Amanda Ogle, Gatlinburg public education and fire safety officer. “All of the grades try on fire gear, and with each class we focus on different areas of fire safety — with the youngest, we cover the basic ‘Stop, Drop and Roll.’ It’s an hour-long presentation for each class.” The presentation for third-graders included a “personalized” smoke alarm, with Groucho Marx eyeglasses and a nose that could “smell the smoke.” Past topics for older grades have included “Watch what you heat,” which educated students on cooking hazards, and the opportunity to learn how to operate fire extinguishers properly. “We tell them that for anybody who doesn’t have a smoke alarm, the fire department will provide one and even install it. Smoke alarms are only good for 10 years,” Ogle said. “You should test it once a month, and whenever you change the time on your clock (during daylight savings), you should change your battery on your smoke alarm.” She noted that many children don’t wake up to the “beep, beep, beep” of smoke alarms because they are deeper sleepers than their parents. Because of this, families can purchase alarms that are specially programmed See phi beta phi, Page A5

PF leaders go west for sewage solutions Officials tour new wastewater plant in Murfreesboro By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer PIGEON FORGE — It’s a technology that could save millions of dollars, provide water in dry months for watering gardens and farms, and keep sewage odors out of the air. Not surprisingly, some Pigeon Forge leaders say its time

may well have come for the city. The local officials are facing a dire situation that demands they build a new wastewater treatment plant in the near future or risk a moratorium on new development as the current facility reaches its capacity. They’re hoping a system being used in Murfreesboro and Franklin might save the city both from that restriction on building and millions of dollars on a demand from a state department. The option they’re look-

“We have a big decision before us and I think it was very beneficial to make that trip. I think everyone was very impressed with their system. It is very clean technology.” — Pigeon Forge City Manager Earle Teaster

ing at uses new technology, including germ-killing ultraviolet light, to treat sewage to a point where it, according to officials in Murfreesboro, “meets most federal and state water quality standards for potable (drinking) water.”

That end product, which is called repurified water, is even treated with chlorine, just like drinking water, but that doesn’t mean you’ll get a gulp of it if you order a glass of water at a restaurant in the Middle Tennessee city. Still, the

end product is put to good use. According to the Murfreesboro Web site, the effluent is used on everything from private farms to a 400-acre plot the city bought for its dispersion to a public golf course. It’s also recycled in fountains, sprayed on gardens and can even be used to wash cars. All that not only means the city’s drinking water isn’t wasted on those other activities, it also saved the See sewage, Page A5

Marital bonds Wedding at Sevier jail may be first of its kind By STAN VOIT Editor SEVIERVILLE — During the wedding ceremony the bride-to-be said “I do,” the groom said the same, the couple kissed, and then he left for home and she returned to her jail dorm. Garry Gibson married Wanda Loretta Pittman this week in what some think was the first jail wedding of a female inmate in the new minimum security facility on Old Knoxville Highway. Jail Capt. Don Parton wasn’t sure about that, but it’s for sure that Garry Gibson will have to wait until December to have a real honeymoon

with his new wife. “We were childhood sweethearts,” he said of Pittman. “We got together after all these years. We talked about getting married, and when she got arrested she asked me to go ahead with it.” Pittman is in jail until Dec. 26 for violation of probation, Gibson said. She failed to attend a scheduled meeting with her probation officer, he said. Gibson, for his part, says he has never been in trouble. Pittman’s difficulties obviously didn’t stop him for marrying her. “I’ll miss her every day,” he said. “But I know I have to wait.” See bonds, Page A5

Family of John Sellars hopes benefit will defray expenses By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer Former district attorney general John Sellars is still in Pittsburgh, Pa., awaiting surgery that could save his life. His family is hoping that his friends and other people in the community will come together Friday to enjoy a party in his honor and to maybe give a little money to help defray expenses as he continues the long wait. Sellars has been in Pittsburgh for more than two years, awaiting multiple organ transplants. He has a rare disorder that impairs the function of his liver, and at some point he will need a transplant of a new liver, stomach, pancreas and small intestine — at the same time. The process has been made more difficult because Sellars has a rare blood type; the organs must be a match for the transplant to have a chance of success. He’s also competing with patients who only need liver transplants, said his sister-in-law, Kerrie Sellars. “I can’t really give you a reason he hasn’t gotten the organs,� she said. “It’s in God’s hands.� Sellars is taking medications that help to “maintain the status quo,� she said, but his health has declined some. He’s no longer able to work. He had surgery in March to replace a shunt; it was something his doctor had been trying to avoid. He’s still married to Lori, a woman he met after moving to Pittsburgh, and she works and helps to support him, Kerrie said. “They’re very happy,� she said. “She’s very good to him.�

While it’s been a difficult wait, he’s remained in good spirits, she said. While he’s not able to make the trip down here — if he gets he call that organs are available, he needs to leave immediately for the hospital — they wanted to have a party and fund raiser here for the many people who know him and still support him. They will do that at the home she shares with his brother, Ronnie, at 1129 Douglas Dam Road in Dandridge. The event will feature bluegrass music, food and more, she said.

People who want to make donations but can’t attend can write a check to The Johnnie Daryl Sellars Trust Fund at any Mountain National Bank location, or call 453-9792 for more information. “It amazes me, the community has just been so good and so good to the family,� Kerrie said. “I thank God for where we live.� It’s something John appreciates, too, even if he can’t be here to see it, she added. “He just reiterates that over and over again to tell everybody thank you.� n jfarrell@themountainpress.com

3MOKY-OUNTAIN 7INE3PIRITS

SEVIERVILLE — The county may get its first rules for commercial building and development on area hillsides in the coming months, with the County Commission set to have a work session on those two matters today at 7:30 p.m. The group will take up two proposals, one from the county’s building inspections department and the other prepared by a special task force the commission created several years ago. The first of those seems likely to carry the least potential for striking up controversy, with the county leaders set to consider implementing a commercial building code drafted by the International Code Council. That document has already been implemented in each of the four local municipalities and by the state, which has also passed a law that those counties without such regulations will fall under its inspections. However, both County Mayor Larry Waters and Chief Building Inspector Chris Jenkins insist there’s no connection between that new state legislation and the county’s actions. “This is something that has been in the works for several years,� Waters explains. “The state has said that all counties without a building code will have to fall under these new rules and they’ll have to pay for the inspections. Fortunately, we were ahead of the curve on this issue. There are a lot of counties out there that are really wondering what they’re going to do.� Jenkins concurs, saying he was given the direction to work on a set of commercial building regulations two years ago when his department was formed. However, that directive came in a list of priorities that meant it couldn’t be accomplished until now. “We were told to set up the department and to work on a residential building code first,� Jenkins says. “The County Commission approved the residential rules late last year, so we started to move forward on the commercial code. This is the natural progression the department had to take.� To provide some continuity for builders, who otherwise might face several different sets of rules depending on where they’re doing construction, county officials have opted to approve the International Building Code as it was written. That document is used the world over for such development and is seen as the standard for the area. If the rules are approved, those looking to build a new commercial enterprise in Sevier County will have to meet certain standards for structural soundness, handicapped accessibility, and plumbing and electrical installations. In order to ensure that happens, they’ll have to submit building plans to Jenkins and allow him or his staff to inspect the construction as it progresses. If that process has been a “natural progression,� the one that is finally set to bring new rules on hillside development before the commission likely has been something

less. The effort to draft those regulations is older than Jenkins’ department, initiated by the hiring of a New York engineering firm to propose such ordinances in late 2006. A task force was formed shortly after that group released its report in May 2007 to look at the recommendations. Since then that group has passed a number of challenges, from heated debates over proposed regulations to losing its chairman with the passing of Rick Joyce to pushing its proposals to unanimous votes from each planning commission in the county. That last move was made surprisingly easily, something County Planner Jeff Ownby credits to regular work sessions that gave the Sevier County Planning Commission faith in both the process and the results. However, what will happen when the County Commission — that group’s most recent work session with the Hillsides Taskforce drew only a handful of commissioners that dwindled to just three before it ended — considers them is anyone’s guess. “I think you will have commissioners who have been involved with this process from the start who will be wholeheartedly in support of it. Then, you will have commissioners who, no matter what is proposed, will be of the mind that the county doesn’t need anymore regulations, so they’ll oppose it,� Ownby says. “It could be a real challenge to get that super majority of 17 votes that it will take to pass this.� That more than half-plus-one tally is required because the proposal would change the county’s rules. Among other things, it would dictate how close together structures can be built on steeply-sloped land, how big lots in those areas must be and how much natural screening must be left around the property. Like Ownby, Waters says he isn’t sure how the vote will go down when the matter comes up. Still, he believes there is a general feeling that there must be some action taken. “I think the growth of the county has been a catalyst that has caused people to really look at how that building is happening,� he says. “As our population has grown and as more houses have been built, you have a lot of these issues develop.� Neither of the proposals will be voted on at during the commission’s work session, nor its Oct. 18 regular meeting, with public notice rules mandating that it not come before the group until its November gathering. That further delay is likely frustrating to the members of the Hillsides Taskforce, which turned its work over to the county more than a year ago. Since that time, the document has been tweaked, taken a backseat to efforts to enroll the county in the National Flood Insurance Program, bounced for three months between planning commissions and, most recently, been shelved while waiting for a new County Commission to be ready to consider it. At different points in the process, Ownby has made different forecasts for when it would finally be taken up by the commission, each of which has proven false, though he’s confident a decision is imminent now.

folks of Murfreesboro millions of dollars, much like it could do here. That’s because at the end of the last century, the city was told by officials at the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) that it could no longer dump treated wastewater into the west fork of the Stones River, which runs through the city. Instead, TDEC was going to require that Murfreesboro install a 30-mile-long pipeline to transport the liquid to the Cumberland River. The work would have kicked the tab up by millions of dollars and been cost-prohibitive, leaving city leaders’ hands tied about how they would deal with the need to expand the wastewater plant from 8 million gallons a day capacity to 16 million. As they pondered solutions, they finally settled on the repurification system. Officials in Pigeon Forge are facing a situation so similar that it could literally just be rewritten with only a few names changes. Playing the part of Murfreesboro is Pigeon Forge, a city that has seen booming population growth in recent years and needs to at least double the size of its wastewater treatment plant.

The wedding took place in the jail’s chapel. The Rev. Benny Flynn, whom Gibson has known all his life, agreed to perform the ceremony. It was a short service, and soon after it was over Pittman — now Wanda Gibson — was sent back to her women’s dorm area in the jail. The only people present for the wedding were the couple, the preacher and a jail officer. When she is released she’ll come to live with Gibson in his home in Sevierville. He rents it from his wife’s brother, and it’s next to her elderly mother’s house. She’ll be close by to tend to her mom, who is 81. “Wanda is loving, warm, caring and pays attention to everything and everybody,” Gibson said. She has kicked her addictions from years past, he said, and gotten her life straightened out. “She shows me love every day,” said Gibson, who is on disability. Until she’s released, he’ll visit her for the one hour a week that visitation is allowed. She buys phone calling cards from the jail commissary and will use them to call him as much as possible.

Money topples from armored car

KNOXVILLE (AP) — A jury has convicted a man of murder in the shooting of a store clerk at Knoxville Center Mall. The Knoxville jury of eight women and four men Wednesday convicted 44-year-old William Johnson after just an hour of deliberation. He was charged in the October 2008 shooting death of 29-year-old Reno Mens Wear clerk Ahmed Nahl. Authorities said Johnson was upset at a tailoring job and demanded a refund. During the dispute, a

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) — Money doesn’t grow on trees, but it seemed to fall from the sky in Indianapolis. Police say three bundles of money fell off the back of an armored car Wednesday near an intersection in the heart of downtown Indianapolis. A car hit one of the bundles and sent bills blowing into the breeze. Witnesses tell The Indianapolis Star about 10 people stormed through traffic into the intersection to fill their arms with cash. Two others stopped to help collect the money and guard it until police and

the plant, demand that the city build a pipe to carry the treated water to the French Broad River, a 12-mile trip that will jack the price of the project up by millions of dollars. The only difference here is that the West Fork Stones River has been replaced by the West Prong Little Pigeon River as the waterway that has been deemed no longer suitable to handle the effluent. With the similarities, it seemed only natural that Pigeon Forge officials would turn to Murfreesboro for some guidance on their situation. That’s why all five members of the City Commission, City Manager Earlene Teaster and Public Works Director Mark Miller made the trip to Murfreesboro last week. They toured the plant with Ron Blanton, who manages it for the city, and came away impressed with what they saw. “We have a big decision before us and I think it was very beneficial to make that trip,” Teaster said this week. “I think everyone was very impressed with their system. It is very clean technology.” That cleanliness was very important to the group because the word is something of a synonym in the wastewater business for odorless. While the technology currently used by Pigeon Forge and most other treatment systems can create some unpleasant smells, those who took the

trip to Murfreesboro were impressed by the lack of that problem there. “I think that was a big consideration for the commissioners because, no matter where you go in Pigeon Forge, you’re going to be right next to businesses and attractions and houses,” Miller explained. “At Murfreesboro, right across the little creek from the plant there is a subdivision where there are $600,000 and $700,000 houses. Ron Blanton told us he’s never had a single complaint about the odor.” Apparently much of the reduction in the smell can be traced to the fact the technology does some of the dirtiest work in contained areas, rather than out in the open. Still, it also relies on some of the old processes like allowing the wastewater to sit in huge outdoor vats for long periods of time. That the system produces water that can be dispersed through irrigation could be both benefit and complication in Pigeon Forge. For the summer months, there’s no question it would be an asset because the time of the year when there are more tourists in the area producing more wastewater coincides with the hottest, driest season. However, in the winter there is a question about how the water could be used, with the state restricting it being sprayed when the ground is frozen and

Lottery Numbers

Troops can get e-mailed ballots NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Military voters in Tennessee and Kentucky who are overseas during the Nov. 4 election can now get their ballots by e-mail and track their ballot online under new federal voting requirements. The Military and Overseas Empowerment Act that passed last year requires all states to provide timely and electronic access to voter forms to help reduce the time it takes to get absentee ballots from military and overseas voters.

Both states have large military populations. Fort Knox is about 25 miles southwest of Louisville, and Fort Campbell straddles the TennesseeKentucky state line and currently has almost 20,000 soldiers serving in Afghanistan. Election officials in both states say the changes are more convenient for troops who previously had to wait sometimes weeks to get ballots by mail while stationed overseas. Voters still have to return marked ballots by mail.

TODAY’S FORECAST

LOCAL:

According to February 2009 report by the Overseas Vote Foundation, more than half of surveyed voters in 2008 who tried but could not vote were unable to because their ballots were late or did not arrive. Mark Goins, the coordinator of elections in Tennessee, said he has heard local officials say they have gotten positive responses from troops about the e-mail ballot option. “They really did like the ease of doing it,”

State primary elections that occurred later in the year made it difficult for some states to comply with the law’s requirements to make general election ballots available to military and overseas voters at least 45 days before the election. But both Kentucky and Tennessee have early primary elections and both states were already meeting that requirement under state laws, election officials said.

commentary

Basic laws of economics now repealed It’s raining! I don’t like it! Why hasn’t Congress passed the Good Weather Act and the Everybody Happy Act? Sound dumb? Why is it any dumber than a law called the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, which promised to cover more for less money? When Obamacare was debated, we freemarket advocates insisted that no matter what the president promised, the laws of economics cannot be repealed. Our opponents in effect answered, “Yes, we can.” Well, Obamacare has barely started taking effect, and the evidence is already rolling in. I hate to say we told them so, but ... we told them so. The laws of economics have struck back. Health insurers Wellpoint, Cigna, Aetna, Humana and CoventryOne will stop writing policies for all children. Why? Because Obamacare requires that they insure already sick children for the same price as well children. That sounds compassionate, but — in case Obamacare fanatics haven’t noticed — sick children need more medical care. Insurance is about risk, and already sick children are 100 percent certain to be sick when their coverage begins. So if the government mandates that insurance companies cover sick children at the lower well-children price, insurers will quit the market rather than sandbag their shareholders. This is not callousness — it’s fiduciary responsibility. Insurance companies are not charities. So, thanks to the compassionate Congress and president, parents of sick children will be saved from expensive insurance — by being unable to obtain any insurance! That’s how government compassion works. In 2014, the same rule will kick in for adults. You now know what to expect. This is just the beginning of reality’s backlash. President Obama promised that under his scheme no one will have to change medical plans, but some 840,000 Americans are already left without coverage because their insurer, the Principal Financial Group, decided to leave the market. “(T)he company’s decision reflected its assessment of its ability to compete in the environment created by the new law,” The New York Times reports (http://tinyurl. com/2c8fnqr). “Principal’s decision closely tracks moves by other insurers that have indicated in recent weeks that they plan to drop out of certain segments of the market ... .” Last week’s bombshell was that McDonald’s may drop coverage for its 30,000 workers unless the Obama administration waives some rules. The central planners of the Obama administration decided in their infinite wisdom that all insurers should spend at least 80 percent to85 percent of their revenues on patient care, a mandate aimed at minimizing administrative costs. It’s natural to assume that higher patient-care ratios are better for consumers, but there’s no proof of that. Health economist James C. Robinson explained years ago that “medical loss ratios” are just an accounting tool and were “never intended to measure quality or efficiency. ... More direct measures of quality are available.” The Wall Street Journal reports: “Insurers say dozens of other employers could find themselves in the same situation as McDonald’s. Aetna Inc. ... provides (similar) plans to Home Depot Inc., Disney Worldwide Services, CVS Caremark Corp., Staples Inc. and Blockbuster Inc., among others, according to an Aetna client list.” McDonald’s may get a waiver, but I like the Cato Institute’s Michael Cannon’s take on that: “Sorry, but I don’t find it comforting that Obamacare gives HHS the power to waive these regulations on a case-by-case basis. Power corrupts. We’ve already seen HHS Secretary Kathleen Sebelius use other powers granted her by Obamacare to threaten insurers who contradict the party line.” In a letter to the trade group America’s Health Insurance Plans, Sebelius wrote there would be “zero tolerance” for companies that attribute “unjustified rate increases” to Obamacare. “Simply stated,” she wrote, “we will not stand idly by as insurers blame their premium hikes and increased profits on the requirement that they provide consumers with basic protections.” In other words: “We have repealed the basic laws of economics. Insurance companies must now give people more but not charge them for it. If you do charge more, you must not tell your customers why. Shut up, obey, and don’t complain. We are your rulers.” — John Stossel hosts a show on the Fox Business Channel and is the author of “Myth, Lies, and Downright Stupidity: Get Out the Shovel — Why Everything You Know is Wrong.” (C)2009 JFS Productions Inc.

Editorial

The ayes have it New electronic voting by County Commission a positive step The idea of having electronic voting for County Commission meetings is a good one, a chance for the commission to move into the 21st Century with a process of recording votes beyond merely raising hands or voicing yes or no. Most votes taken by the commission are unanimous, in favor of the motion. Sometimes the votes are divided, and whether it’s three or 13 voting against something, the public ought to be able to know quickly and accurately what the division in votes was. Unless a roll call vote is held, it may be hard to know for sure, and without a roll call vote the clerk may or may not record in the minutes exactly who voted in what way on a particular motion. The minutes of a government meeting are the official record of that meeting. As such they ought to record specific votes when those votes are not unanimous. People have a right to know how each commissioner voted on a more controversial measure. The electronic voting

process may answer those questions, as long as the clerk actually records the specific votes in the minutes of the meeting. The new method of voting will be tested today during a practice meeting. It will be used for the first time at the commission’s Oct. 18 meeting. The results of any vote will be displayed immediately, making things easier for the audience, the clerk taking the minutes and the public through reporting by the newspaper. It’s not necessary for five-member governing bodies such as city councils and school boards to have such an electronic voting system. It’s easy to know who voted for what motion, and most governing boards require a show of hands or voice vote anyway. As long as the minutes record how a split vote went down, the public is served and the need for an elaborate voting method like the one adopted by the C0unty Commission isn’t necessary. County leaders have been debating the new system for a while.

“Hopefully it’s going to be a better system for us,” County Mayor Larry Waters says. “I think it’s going to be a positive not just for the commission but also for the citizens of the county. It will provide that accurate record that folks can go back to when they want to know how a vote went.” The $19,000 electronic voting system gives each commissioner a remote control that will allow them to register everything from their presence to their desire to address the board to their preferences on the issue at hand. Those votes will be tallied by the program and displayed on video screens. County officials say the new equipment means commissioners won’t know how the others on the panel are voting until the end when it’s shown on the screen. That may lessen the influence some commissioners can have over others. Another good thing. Attend today’s practice meeting or the Oct. 18 regular meeting to see the new system in action.

Public forum Gatlinburg’s Parkway parking enforcement dismays visitors

Editor: While vacationing, we recently had the pleasure of visiting Gatlinburg. It was early, about 8:30 a.m., and we were headed for the Pancake Pantry on the Parkway. There were a number of vehicles parked on both sides of the street and we took an open space and likewise parked. After a short wait, we were seated and ordered our breakfast. Before our food was delivered, the hostess announced that, if we

were parked on the Parkway and in order to avoid a ticket, we would have to move our vehicle as no parking was permitted after 9 a.m. We searched up and down the Parkway for signage to that effect, thinking we had missed it. Seeing none, and observing a female police officer issuing a citation across the street from where we parked, we decided to move on. Maybe this is knowledge held by the locals, but not shared with the visitors. In any event, in the midst of our meal we had to depart the restaurant, find remote parking several blocks away (a pay-to-park city facility), walk back to

the restaurant to resume our meal. Shame on all: The City for not having posted the signage that would permit visitors to abide by the (unpublished) law, and the restaurant for not having asked before we were seated (they claimed it was not their fault). It was the City’s fault for not restoring signage removed when road work was being done (no sign of such work in progress when we visited). We really would have enjoyed our day much more had we not been hassled by such an apparent lack of consideration for visitors. Thomas and Kelly Stum Orlando, Fla.

PREP GOLF

Local golfers finish up at state tourney By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor MANCHESTER, Tenn. — A tough front nine at WillowBrook Golf Club took Pigeon Forge senior golfer Chase McCown out of the running for the TSSAA A/AA State Golf Championship Wednesday, but a back nine filled with moxie from the two-time Sevier County boys champ got him back to a respectable 16th-place finish by day’s end. “I don’t think the 82 (he shot today) was a goal, but I believe he was proud about how he came back,” PF golf coach Chad Owenby said following the conclusion of the tournament. “(And) I’m proud of him for the way he battled and held the round together.” McCown was 8-over at the turn but fought

Owenby said some bad luck and snowballing problems caused McCown’s difficulty in the early part of the round. “He got off to a tough start. He got a bogie on the first hole, and the next hole he’s got about a 6-foot par putt down-

hill and he just (barely) missed it. It rolled past and he missed coming back up.” McCown ended up with a seven on the par four. “It snowballed on him a little bit,” Owenby said. But, ever the competitor, McCown battled back, kept his composure and finished the round with a respectable score of 157 for the two-day tourney. And, with a long time until next golf season,

Owenby expects the junior will be back better than ever as a senior in 2011. “I expect him to just work hard and be an even better golfer than he is now,” Owenby said. “I think he can play with anybody. “I think he’ll be a fine player next year, and I know he’s going to play four more years in college.” Alcoa junior Grant Daugherty won the tour-

nament with a two-day total of 144 par golf. Pigeon Forge sophomore girls’ golf ace Sunni McAllister finished up her first trip to the state in 48th place after two rough days in a row. McAllister shot 108 both days for a combined 216, well off the amazing pace of state champion Sophia Schubert, a freshman from CAK that shot a 145 for the tournament. But coach Owenby said

McAllister’s experience at the tournament can help her game by leaps and bounds. “I’m proud that she made it down here, it was a very good learning experience for her,” Owenby said. “She’s got a lot of potential, so this is her first big tournament like this and this game’s pretty hard when you’re under pressure. “She hit some very fine golf shots this week, but she hit some that aren’t her typical game. She played well at times and poor at times, and that’s just what happens under pressure.” Gatlinburg-Pittman Highlanders senior Garrett Barnett shot a second-day 88, an improved score from his previous day’s 94, to finish the tournament in 63rd place. mpsports@themountainpress.com

PREP GRIDIRON

PF Tigers not panicking By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer

Former Patriots wide receiver Randy Moss (81) throws a ball during a recent practice in Foxborough, Mass. New England traded the seventime Pro Bowl wide receiver to the Minnesota Vikings on Wednesday, where Moss began his NFL career. NFL GRIDIRON

Farve finally connects with Moss By JON KRAWCZYNSKI AP Sports Writer MINNEAPOLIS — When Randy Moss first came to Minnesota 12 years ago, he electrified a stagnant franchise and immediately turned the Vikings into Super Bowl contenders. Now the Vikings need him to do it again. The New England Patriots traded the seventime Pro Bowl receiver on Wednesday, giving Moss the exit he expected all along and sending him back to the place where he became a superstar. “He is a tremendous competitor and was an integral member of the Vikings organization,” Vikings coach Brad Childress said in a statement. “Once again, ownership was completely supportive of our efforts to add a valuable football player to our team. I know the entire organization is thrilled to welcome him back to the Twin Cities.” ESPN and Foxsports.com reported the Patriots will receive a third-round draft pick. The Vikings play at the New York Jets on Monday night, and they are only 3-1/2 weeks away from an Oct. 31 game in Foxborough

against the Patriots. “In this business, there are complex and often difficult decisions, but it is my responsibility to make them based on what I feel is best for our football team, in both the short term and long term,” Patriots coach Bill Belichick said in a statement. “I am grateful for the opportunity to have coached Randy Moss and aside from facing him as an opponent, I wish him the very best for the remainder of his Hall of Fame career.” Moss will go from catching passes from Tom Brady in New England to hauling in Brett Favre’s throws with the Vikings, who desperately needed a downfield threat after Pro Bowl receiver Sidney Rice had hip surgery in August. The Vikings began the year with championship aspirations after reaching the NFC title game in January. But they have lost two of their first three and Favre’s passing game has struggled to get off the ground with Rice and Percy Harvin both struggling with injuries. The Vikings failed to trade for disgruntled Chargers receiver Vincent Jackson earlier this season, and Favre has said he would like to see another big receiver added to

the roster. The Vikings and owner Zygi Wilf delivered in a big way Wednesday. Favre openly campaigned for the Packers to acquire Moss when Oakland put him on the trade block in 2007. The Patriots ultimately ended up parting with a fourth-round pick to pry Moss away, and Favre privately fumed at the swing and miss by the Green Bay front office. The Packers shipped Favre to the Jets in 2008 and he signed with the Vikings in 2009. Now, Favre and Moss have finally been united. Moss was a first-round pick of the Vikings in 1998 and spent his first seven seasons in Minnesota, where he emerged as one of the most exciting playmakers in the league. He was traded to Oakland in 2005, where he languished for two years before being revitalized in New England. Moss is in the final season of a three-year, $27 million contract. He caught 574 passes for 9,142 yards and 90 touchdowns in his first stint with Minnesota, bursting onto the scene in 1998 by catching deep throws from Randall Cunningham and helping a record-breaking offense reach the NFC title game.

PIGEON FORGE — It will be a battle of Orange-and-Black Tigers this Friday night when the Pigeon Forge gridiron gang looks to rebound from last week’s 27-24 heartbreaker at Knoxville Carter with a trip to Meigs County High School. And it won’t be just the names and the uniforms of the teams that are similar. “We had a heartbreaker (last week against Carter), but at the same time Meigs County had a heartbreaker last week when they got beat in double overtime by one of their rivals, Sweetwater,” said fourthyear Pigeon Forge head football coach Lee Hammonds. “So both teams are coming off disappointing losses, so it’s going to be the team that can regroup and get focused on Friday night. “What you are going to see Friday night are two very similar football teams, two real similar offenses with a lot of the same plays, and two similar defenses with alignments and a lot of the same responsibilities. We’ve got two teams with a lot of the same.” Meigs County (2-5) holds a 2-1 lead in the all-time series between the two clubs, although Pigeon Forge (2-4) won last year’s battle by a 20-13 final. The Tigers, already missing workhorse junior running back Chase Travis with a high ankle sprain, had more reason for concern when sophomore wildcat Kaleb Black suffered a knee injury in last week’s battle with Carter. But after a couple days of rest, the swelling went down and Black has been a full participant at practice this week. “It took him a couple days to get over it, but by Monday he was ready to go again,” said Hammonds, following a sharp Wednesday practice. “It’s not hindering

him, he’s not limping, he’s not gimp on it and he’s been out there this week full speed. It’s just a strange kind of thing.” With Travis out, the local Tigers will continue to rely on sophomore running back Patrick Barbieri, who led Pigeon Forge with 147 yards and two TDs on 26 carries last week at Carter. “Patrick has run the ball well ... and the more he experience he gets, the better he gets,” said Hammonds. “He’s got good vision and sees the holes well.”

MLB HARDBALL

MLB playoffs begin with early games Roy Halladay tosses 2ndever postseason no-hitter

Cruz, Molina homer to support Lee against Rays

By ROB MAADDI AP Sports Writer

ST. PETERSBURG, Fla. (AP) — Cliff Lee pitched seven impressive innings and Nelson Cruz and Bengie Molina homered off David Price, leading the Texas Rangers to a 5-1 victory over the Tampa Bay Rays in the opening game of the AL playoffs. Lee matched a postseason best with 10 strikeouts Wednesday while allowing five hits — one after the second inning. During one dominating stretch, he retired 16 of 17 batters before giving up Ben Zobrist’s homer in the seventh. Lee improved to 5-0 in six career postseason starts. He went 4-0 with a 1.56 ERA in five starts for the Philadelphia Phillies in 2009, including 2-0 with a 2.81 ERA against the New York Yankees in the World Series. The Rangers ace lost to the Rays three times during the regular season, however the AL East champions were no match for the left-hander this time. The Rangers stopped a nine-game postseason losing streak that began in 1996.

PHILADELPHIA — Roy Halladay has thrown the second no-hitter in postseason history, leading the Philadelphia Phillies over the Cincinnati Reds 4-0 in Game 1 of the NL division series on Wednesday. Halladay, who threw a perfect game at Florida on May 29, dominated the Reds with a sharp fastball and a devastating slow curve in his postseason debut. The All-Star righthander allowed one runner, walking Jay Bruce with two outs in the fifth, and struck out eight. Don Larsen is the only pitcher to throw a postseason no-hitter. He threw a perfect game for the New York Yankees in the 1956 World Series against Brooklyn.

Dear Annie: I am a 25-year-old woman with two daughters. I became pregnant with my oldest when I was 20, but the relationship with her father fizzled. My current husband is a loving father and a good provider, but he comes from a troubled background, and we decided it was best to have only one more child. Both of my daughters had complications during delivery and almost died. We’re blessed to have them, but I felt a tubal ligation was the right thing to do. People often ask me if I’m planning to have more children. When I politely respond, “No, I’ve had a tubal,” they frequently make negative comments, asking why I did that or why didn’t my husband get a vasectomy. I’m tired of explaining the pain of almost losing my daughters at birth, and quite frankly, I do not regret my choice. But I get so angry when people assume I did something selfish. How do I deal with their remarks? -- Tired of Hearing It Dear Tired: You are giving out way more information than necessary. It’s nobody’s business if you plan to have more children, if you’ve had a tubal, if your husband has had a vasectomy or anything else. When they ask if you are planning to have more children, plaster a big smile on your face and reply, “Why do you need to know?” If they are rude enough to persist, tell them that is a private matter between you and your husband. Dear Annie: I’m a 23-year-old transsexual man, and my mother is

actively sabotaging my life and transition. I came out to her six years ago, and despite my trying to keep the lines of conversation open, she has been making every effort to stop me. She has outed me to employers, which eventually resulted in me losing my job. I’ve spent the past six months attempting to find employment while living under her roof to save money. This results in arguing and tears at almost every turn. I know she loves me, but this has to change. My savings account is dwindling, and I am at the end of my rope. It’s a little late to go back in the closet, and I will not de-transition just to make her happy. How can I make her realize that by trying to get her daughter back, she’s completely alienating her son and ruining my life? I’m completely stuck, with nowhere else to go. Please print this so parents of transgendered people will understand that they can seriously impact their children’s lives in a negative way.

Lady Eagles fall to Jeff County JEFFERSON CITY — The Seymour Lady Eagles volleyball team traveled to District 2-AAA rival Jefferson County on Tuesday night and came away with a disappointing four-set loss to the Lady Patriots. “Everyone from Jeff County was in a good mood as it was Senior Night for their team,” said Lady Eagles coach Ed Irvin, following the loss. “Their team started out strong and took the first game 25-17, but we regrouped for a 25-19 win in the second set,” But that wasn’t enough to stop the Jefferson County

momentum, and the Lady Pats took the final two sets by 25-23 and 25-21 finals to win the match in four games. “We simply were outplayed most of the evening,” said Irvin. “We have Sevier County coming to our gym (6 p.m. tonight), so I hope we are better prepared mentally, or we will be in for a long evening.” Seymour junior Nicole Warner led the Lady Eagles (25-13 overall, 5-4 in District 2-AAA) effort with 12 points and 10 digs, and sophomore Sarah Stoffle added 19 sets and four assists in the loss.

The Sevier County High School Smoky Bears freshmen and junior varsity gridiron teams split a pair of contest with county rival Seymour Eagles this week. The Sevier County freshmen team won big by a 34-18 final that wasn’t that close, but the Seymour junior varsity squad got some redemption by hanging a 12-0 shutout on the Smoky Bears team. In freshmen action: Sevier County fullback Logan Brett got the scoring started with a 10-yard tromp to paydirt that made it 7-0 following Dustin Sutton’s PAT kick, the lone score of the first quarter. SCHS quarterback Luke Manning made it 14-0 Bears with a 49-yard aerial score to receiver Chris Allen in the second quarter. Seymour cut it to 14-6 with running back Tanner Sise’s second-quarter run to the end zone, but Manning answered for the Bears with a 15-yard TD run of his own to make it 20-6, the score at intermission.
