A Sevier County man was being held for questioning Sunday night in the Blount County Jail in connection with the death of a 76-year Knox County woman, authorities said. “He is being held for questioning — he has not

been charged,” a woman who answered the phone at the Blount County Corrections Department said late Sunday afternoon. “He has not been charged.” Blount County investigators said Tracy Lyn Fox, 37, of Kodak, was located in Chattanooga at 5:15 a.m. Sunday. Fox became

a “person of interest” in the slaying of Wanda Britt when he was seen driving the Fox murdered woman’s 2009 Dodge Caliber in Knox County on

Saturday afternoon. Authorities said Fox was in possession of the vehicle when authorities located him. Blount County authorities said Fox has a criminal record in Sevier and Knox counties. Britt’s body was reportedly found by a man on a four-wheeler at around

11 a.m. on Quayle Hollow Road in Friendsville on Saturday morning. As of Sunday afternoon, authorities had not released how she had been killed. Sevier County dispatchers received a call early Saturday afternoon saying the SUV had been seen on See QUESTIONING, Page A4

Military ‘sale-lute’ American Legion tries unique fundraiser to raise money for post By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — The men and women of American Legion Post 104 are proud to post the colors anytime and anywhere, bringing the flag they fought for and some of their friends died for to events from veterans’ funerals to presidential addresses. They who answered the call to serve their country still respond when they’re called on to help their fellow man, offering assistance to local veterans in need. The group’s members say they’re happy to serve in any way they can. “We do a lot,” Air Force veteran Tommy Thompson said. “If a vet’s in need, they can contact (county Veterans Services Officer) Paul Whaley and he’ll contact us. We bring the colors when local veterans ask us to for funerals. We help stateside families of men and women who are currently serving. We just try to do whatever we can to help those who served or are serving our country.” All that effort doesn’t come cheap. Between paying for transportation, the upkeep of the post home and even uniforms for the Honor Guard, the tab for all the post’s activities can be considerable. “We’re always looking for ways to raise money,” Thompson said. That’s why he helped organize the first Crafts Derek Hodges/The Mountain Press and Collectables Sale and Eats, a sort of meldRobin Zaleski sifts through a box of military patches, medals and other memorabilia during American Legion Post 104’s first Crafts and See ‘sale-lute,’ Page A4 Collectables Sale and Eats on Saturday.

Meeting at 5:30 today By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer PIGEON FORGE — City leaders seem to be ready to accede to a request from a Knoxville developer that he be allowed to revise an agreement he and the city

reached just a few months ago. On the agenda for the City Commission meeting at 5:30 p.m. today in City Hall is consideration of a revised version of that deal between the municipality and Darby Campbell, owner of Premier Media. Campbell came before the group early this year, asking that

he be allowed to move one side each of billboards he owns in front of O’Charley’s and Texas Roadhouse on the Parkway to a pair of new locations. After considerable debate and some vocal opposition, the commission eventually approved relocating the other sign face. The OK was also given to plans to make the

new sign digital. That latter part of the deal seemed most distasteful not only to those on the board, but also to the Biggs family, owners of The Incredible Christmas Place and its associated inn. While the business owners worried Campbell See PF, Page A5

Andy Madson checks in books at the Sevier County Public Library.

SEVIERVILLE — It took a long journey for librarian Andy Madson to wind up at the Sevier County Public Library. “I’m from Minnesota by way of a lot of different places,” Madson said. Those places include Seattle, Atlanta and Washington, D.C. Madson grew up in small farming community in southern Minnesota — the rolling hills were quite a bit different from the Smoky Mountains, he said. But his childhood might not sound that different from a lot of people here.

“Especially in the summer, I was either on the ball field or in the library.” Both his parents were teachers, and his father also coached several sports, so it’s easy to see where he could develop those interests. Growing up in a small town — especially in an age where there weren’t hundreds of digital channels and access to the Internet — made trips to the library a must for a kid with a fertile imagination. “The library was a gateway to a larger world,” Madson said. Still, he didn’t grow up thinking he’d See NEIGHBOR, Page A4

SEVIERVILLE — Jesse Cook and his plan to build apartments in Seymour’s Shooks Gap subdivision will give it another go before the Planning Commission when that group meets at 5:30 p.m. Tuesday in the courthouse. The proposal has faced considerable opposition from neighbors of the site, who worry such construction may have a considerable negative impact on their own properties. It seems likely those folks will continue their crusade against the plan during Tuesday’s session. It wasn’t those boisterous opponents but some technicalities with Cook’s submission and questions from the planning staff that took the matter off the Planning Commission’s agenda last month. It appears he’s fixed those problems and is ready to move ahead with getting the approval he needs to move ahead with building the three apartment buildings, which are set to house eight units each.

If the group does vote to approve the plan, the neighbors have promised to file a lawsuit to stop the construction. Also on the agenda: Rezoning Request n From Charles Atchley for property at an unspecified address on Douglas Dam Road from A-1 (agricultural) to C-1 (rural commercial) for apartments and a restaurant Concept Extension n Bearwallow Mountain, a 15-lot development on 55.13 acres off Richardson Cove Road Minor Plat Review n Marjorie Velma Floyd property Final Plat Reviews n Vista at Hodges Bend, Phase 1 of a two-phase development off Hodges Bend Road n Alpine Vista/Wears Valley Estates, a 14-lot subdivision on 39.18 acres off Happy Hollow Road Site Plan Review n Plan for a commercial building on the Jack Goode property at the intersection of New Center Road and Newport Highway. n

OAK RIDGE (AP) — A Tennessee landfill could receive very low-level radioactive soil from a closed plutonium extraction plant in New York under plans by the U.S. Department of Energy. It was reported that the Chestnut Ridge Landfill in Anderson County was mentioned as the likely destination for the dirt during a conference call Thursday organized by DOE. The Department of Energy is excavating about 6,000 cubic yards of soil that contains Cesium-137 and detectable levels of Strontium-90 and Plutonium-239/240 from the New York site starting in mid-October. That’s the equivalent of some 200 dump truck loads of waste.

make a living by working in one. In fact, he majored in East Asian studies. A trip to China with a relative when Madson was a teen fueled his interest in China, and he initially thought he’d turn that into a calling. At some point, though, he became burned out on the topic as the classes wore on. And in the meantime, he’d started taking jobs working at libraries. He worked at several as he moved around, before finally going to get a degree in information services at Hodges Library. He came to East Tennessee, he explained, because his wife, Knoxvillenative Amanda Bell Madson, got a job in the area. She is currently pastor at Pleasant Hill United Methodist Church. People might think that being a librarian is all about checking books in and out, and making sure they’re returned to the proper spot in the shelves. There’s a lot more to it than that, Madson said, and a lot more that they can get by visiting their library.

He can help people find a book on the topic they’re interested in, or help them find other resources that can aid in their research. “We get a lot of people who are looking for something but may not know just where to look,” he explained. “I can help them expand theirs search, I can help them find data bases, I can look things up for them.” He is getting ready to take over a management job in the reference section when the new library opens next year, and organizing for that already takes a good deal of his time, he said. A lot of people are using the library for computer and Internet access, and they still have lots of people just coming in to check out books or read magazines, he said. But the library also offers a wide range of classes for adults as well as children, and hosts events to help people file unemployment online and complete other tasks. “There’s a lot of different things we can do for people,” he said. “The library is more than just books.” n

Caden Tierny, 2, laughs Saturday when a corgi puppy nibbles on his cheek at the Sproul Arena near Las Cruces, N.M., where the annual Cowboys for Cancer Research is held.

For the sum of $6.5M, a ranch fit for a King MEMPHIS (AP) — For $6.5 million, you can own a piece of property fit for a King. The famous Circle G Ranch, better known as the Elvis Ranch near Memphis, is available — and people have been inquiring from all over the world. Prudential CollinsMaury Realtors agent Rodger Motz, who is handling the sale, told The Memphis Commercial Appeal that calls have come from as far away as Denmark. “I knew before I listed the property that there were a lot of Elvis fans out there,� Motz said. “But I have to admit, I was surprised to get a call from that far away.� Elvis Presley owned the 155-acre ranch, just across the TennesseeMississippi state line in Horn Lake, Miss., from 1966-71. He and Priscilla honeymooned there in 1968, and the building known as the “honeymoon cottage� still stands today. Motz said the ranch is zoned for planned unit development, but it’s anyone’s guess what will become of the property once it’s sold. “When it was for sale a few years back, we were trying to make a Starz Resort out of it,� Motz said. “We tried two different times to get that done with two different buyers, but they never came through with the money.� Horn Lake planning director Anita Rainey said large-scale developments would be a failure. “There has been talk of a development that would be sort of a cross between Branson, Mo.,

“I knew before I listed the property that there were a lot of Elvis fans out there. But I have to admit, I was surprised to get a call from that far away (Denmark).� —Realtor Rodger Motz

and Las Vegas,� Rainey said. “Some people have had visions of high-rise condos and honeymoon cottages — even a replica of the White House. But I don’t see that happening.� Rainey said a large number of tourists find the ranch during annual Elvis Week festivities, and she believes it could be an even bigger draw if it’s developed properly. Rainey hopes a buyer puts together a combination of residential and commercial development with certain elements of Elvis history preserved as the centerpiece. “I think they should maintain certain parts of the ranch like the honeymoon house and the bridge across the lake,� Rainey said. “There’s also a cross out there that was

built before Elvis bought the property, and I believe that should stay.� Rainey said the area needs some outlets for tourists to spend money while taking in some Elvis history. Such a combination would be good for Horn Lake, she said. “During Elvis Week, it’s always hard for me to believe the number of people out there taking pictures of a pasture,� Rainey said. “If there were restaurants and hotels out there, it could certainly be a very positive thing for the city.�

may want to make a pair of billboards he owns with sides facing their hotel digital, the city officials were more concerned approving the plan may set a precedent of allowing the digital boards. The city currently has no regulations on the lighted signs, though officials have no fewer than five times expressed a desire to have some drafted, but have never moved forward. Though Campbell promised the group he likely wouldn’t be making many requests for digital boards, even suggesting those two might be the only ones he would want, commissioners still wanted to find a way to hold him to that. In the agreement allowing the signs to be moved, the commissioners asked City Attorney Jim Gass to include provisions that stipulate Campbell won’t ask to make similar moves in the future and won’t seek further digital board approvals. At the time the matter was considered during a July 13 meeting, Campbell said he was amicable to the deal, even agreeing when he was asked specifically if he could abide by the document’s strict rules. However, since then, Campbell told the City Commission during a work session last week, he has reviewed the agreement and found the provisions too restricting. He said he did not fully read it before the July meeting and did not understand the limiting rules. Though some city leaders questioned that in a previous work session, pointing out their own memories of Campbell agreeing to the restrictions, they seemed more amicable when Campbell was actually in the room during the recent meeting. In that session, Campbell

presented one revised paragraph he’d like to see replace the one in the existing document, which Campbell has never signed. That amendment would remove the restrictions on Premier moving boards or seeking new digital permits, though it would prohibit Campbell moving single board faces in the future and his changing the boards near the Bigsses’ businesses to digital. In the work session, Keith Biggs said he appreciates the prohibition as it relates to his properties, but still thinks the city should limit or even prohibit digital boards. City commissioners, on the other hand, seemed ready to vote for Campbell’s version of the agreement they drafted and approved. Also on the agenda for today’s session is: n Ordinance No. 898 to amend the zoning map by rezoning the proposed Mountain Reflections development between the Spur and Upper Middle Creek Road from R-1 (low-density residential) to C-4 (planned unit commercial) (second reading n Ordinance No. 899 to amend the city’s ordinances on C-4 zones n Resolution No. 766 to authorize the issuance of General Obligation Refunding Bonds, in aggregate principal amount of not to exceed $37.5 million for the purpose of prepaying all or a portion of several city loans and providing for the levy of taxes for the payment of principal of, premium, if any, and interest on the

bonds n Resolution No. 767 to authorize the novation of Interest Rate Swap Agreement heretofore entered into by the Public Building Authority of Sevier County for the city and authorizing the execution and delivery of documents relating to such novated swap agreements n A request for an extended delivery date for the new fire truck n Donation by the library of outdated book cassettes and other materials to the Friends of the Pigeon Forge Public Library n Request from the Police Department to purchase a drug patrol dog from special drug funds n A $5,000 grant from the Governor’s Highway Safety Office for High Visibility Law Enforcement Campaign for capital assistance n Allowing two car shows to use the city’s parking lot on Teaster Lane during May and June after securing necessary approval from the Planning Commission n A contract for and acceptance of a new 5309 Capital Transportation Grant from the Tennessee Department of Transportation for $167,157 with matching funds of $18,573 to be included in the city’s 2010-11 budget n Purchase of one mini bus and two trolleys with stimulus money on a 100 percent grant under a current bid n A quote for a Winterfest 20th anniversary sign display per the current budget. n

New defense against annoying robocalls CHATTANOOGA (AP) — Those telemarketing calls with a recorded voice making the pitch are mostly illegal and can now be stopped. Since Sept. 1, most such calls to residential and cell phones have been banned by federal law, unless the person answering has given written permission. Chattanooga Better Business Bureau President Jim Winslett told the Chattanooga Times Free Press that the so-called robocalls frequently seem to happen during dinner or other important times.

The best way to avoid them is sign up on state and federal do-not-call registries. Businesses are not eligible. The Tennessee Regulatory Authority defines the calls as those made with automated dialing devices and recorded messages. Tennessee’s online registration is http://www. dnccomplaint.html The federal government’s site is: https://www.donotcall. gov/ Placing a phone number on the national reg-

Smoky Mountain Tourism Development Council will host the Winterfest luncheon at 11:30 a.m. Oct. 26 at Mills Auditorium. Gatlinburg is teaming up with Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Sevier County to celebrate the 20th season of Winterfest. The featured speaker will be Steve Morse of the University of Tennessee Tourism Institute, with remarks by Phyllis Qualls-Brooks, assistant commissioner of tourism for Tennessee. Tickets for the luncheon are $25 and can be purchased at the Gatlinburg Welcome Center on the Spur.

“American consumers have made it crystal clear that few things annoy them more than the billions of commercial telemarketing robocalls they receive every year,” Federal Trade Commission Chairman Jon Leibowitz said in a statement. Since the ban started, there has not been a noticeable increase in complaints, said Eddie Roberson, director of the Tennessee Regulatory Authority. He told the newspaper that about 45 complaints have been filed in the past month.

istry will not stop calls by political organizations, charities, telephone surveyors and companies with which you have an existing business relationship. Most telemarketers should not call a number once it has been on the registry for 31 days. If consumers continue to get calls, they should try to get as much information as possible and file a complaint, Roberson said. Under the new national law, companies that keep calling can be fined as much as $16,000 per call.

“Couples Retreat”

LOS ANGELES (AP) — “Swingers” co-stars Vince Vaughn and Jon Favreau buddied up for the weekend’s top movie as “Couples Retreat” debuted with $35.3 million, while the microbudgeted fright flick “Paranormal Activity” leaped into the top 10. Shot for a reported $15,000, “Paranormal Activity” came in at No. 5 with $7.1 million as distributor Paramount expanded it into daylong release after two weeks of midnight-only screenings. “Paranormal Activity” played in narrow release of just 160 cinemas, a fraction of the theater count for other top movies. It averaged a whopping $44,163 a theater, compared with $11,780 in 3,000 theaters for “Couples Retreat.”

Truly blessed to live in area that we do

Vacations are basically over this year, for most people anyway. I never take a week-long one anyway, usually just a three or four day getaway. My last week-long vacation was back in 2002 when I traveled to the Outer Banks, N.C. It took longer than I thought it would; some ten to eleven hours. We had to stop and pick up my daughter and husband who had flown in from England to the RaleighDurham Airport. We took our dog with us as she loved to travel by car. When we got to the airport there, we took her in with us as we waited. I asked the local security if it would be OK to have her there and they gave us no problem. In fact, she became a hit with the personnel people there as they got to pet and play with her; she loved that, too. When I first moved here I picked up on some of the local sayings like a “coke” can mean any type of soft drink, not just a Coca-Cola. Up north we call them “pop.” Another saying is what they refer to when talking about the beach. “We’re going to the beach tomorrow.” I would ask,”which one?” They would look at me funny as if to say,”what do you mean, which one?” I later came to realize that it was Myrtle Beach they were talking about. I’m sure they go to other beachs, don’t they? When I go to the beach, I go to the Charleston area called the Isle of Palms. Sometimes I go to Hilton Head or Tybee Island near Savannah. I love history and these places feed me well with rich history. It’s been a while since I went to the beaches of Florida, but they’re very enjoyable as well. Have you noticed that people for the most part, like to go to or visit places that are the opposite of where they are from. I love these mountains and always will, but I have to get to the beach whenever I can. People in Florida and other coastal areas like to get up here to our mountains and enjoy something they don’t have. We as Americans love to get away, even to foreign countries. I’ve never been out of the country, but my family all has. Of course, foreigners love to get away from their countries and travel to America. I am fortunate to be able to meet many of these people in my everyday routine and talk with them as we share our different cultures. I can always pick out the ones from Scotland and Ireland as that is heritage. I’ve found that people are all very similar in this regard: They love to travel and go on vacation. We all want to experience other people’s way of life. We want to see their buildings; their rivers and lakes. We want to eat their foods. We want to learn about their history. We want to expand out horizons. When we’re done, we want to tell our friends of our experiences. After a year or so, we want to go do it again. Now there are exceptions to all of this. My side of the family up in Kentucky, did not want to travel and visit with other people. My uncle up in the Appalachian Mountains of Knox County, Ky., did come off of his mountain at least once back in the 1940s. He was drafted and was sent to North Africa to fight Germans in WWII. When he got back, he swore he would never leave his beloved mountains again. He pretty much kept that promise. I’m sure there are people right here who feel the same as my uncle. Americans are fortunate, in deed, to have such a beautiful country to travel and visit. We have been blessed to have an abundance of rich natural resources to get away to. We, in the surrounding counties of The Great Smoky Mountains, must truly be the most blessed. — Dan M. Smith is a Cincinnati native and Gatlinburg resident.

Noble about Nobel

President rises above critics, shows humility after winning peace prize President Barack Obama has won the 2009 Nobel Peace Prize and many conservatives are having a field day with it — so much so that perhaps they’d like a little cheese to go with their whine. Naturally, conservative talk show host Rush Limbaugh is at the forefront of the critics. “This fully exposes the illusion that is Barack Obama,” he told an online political newsletter in an e-mail. “And with this ‘award’ the elites of the world are urging Obama, the man of peace, to not do the surge in Afghanistan, not take action against Iran and its nuclear program and to basically continue his intentions to emasculate the United States.” Further, Limbaugh called it a “greater embarrassment” than losing the Olympics. Limbaugh was hardly alone among critics in firing salvos at the president. “ ... It is unfortunate that the president’s star power has outshined tireless advocates who have made real achievements working toward peace and human rights,” Republican National Committee Chairman Michael Steele said. “One thing is certain —

President Obama won’t be receiving any awards from Americans for job creation, fiscal responsibility, or backing up rhetoric with concrete action.” Those comments are just a very small sampling of the sour grapes — uh, unhappiness — shown by conservatives. Check the Web: If you know where to look, you can find politicians and talking heads around the world critical of the selection. Obama, for his part, said he was honored and humbled by the selection and even said during a press conference in the White House Rose Garden he wasn’t sure he had done enough to deserve the award or deserved to be in the company of previous winners. The Norwegian Nobel Committee said Obama was deserving because of his creation of a “new climate in international politics” and his work on nuclear disarmament. There are critical issues all over the globe — Iran, North Korea, Afghanistan, the West Bank, China, the HIV epidemic in Africa, hunger in the Third World — and the president used his platform as the newly named

Nobel winner as a “call to action” to work with other nations to solve those problems. Not all conservatives got on the Barack Bashing Bandwagon. Potential Republican presidential contenders Mike Huckabee and Minnesota Gov. Tim Pawlenty were among Republican leaders who urged conservatives to restrain their criticism. Surprisingly perhaps, what may have been the clearest voice of reason among Republicans, was that of Arizona Sen. John McCain, who lost to Obama in the bitter 2008 presidential race. Said McCain ... “I think part of their decision-making was expectations. And I am sure the president understands that he now has even more to live up to. “But as Americans, we’re proud when our president receives an award of that prestigious category.” Your views on Obama may come down closer to those voiced by Limbaugh and Steele, but you’ve got to admire the president’s ideology and applaud the graciousness of his onetime bitter rival.

Political view


Leery of Americans Against Food Taxes Let’s get real about who the Americans Against Food Taxes really are. To see this group’s television ads, you might think it is a grassroots organization of working parents, pictured bringing their children home from school or sports practice. The “mother” in a frequently aired ad chides lawmakers who might consider raising taxes on soda or juice drinks. ... Fair enough. We’re certain many Americans buy these products for their families, and in an unrelenting recession, we all lament higher prices at the checkout. The group’s Web site says Americans Against Food Taxes is a “coalition of concerned citizens responsible individuals, financially strapped families, small and large businesses in commu-

nities across the country” who are opposed to a proposed tax on food and beverages, specifically a hike on soda, juice drinks and similar products. The truth? According to Sourcewatch, an online fact-checking group, the organization’s membership is mainly lobbying groups for soft drink manufacturers and distributors. ... Are they Americans who are against food taxes? Sure. But hardly are they average-Joe citizens who are worried about grocery bills and decided to launch a public information campaign. This is the beverage lobby protecting its livelihood. ... We’re not looking to exclusively blame

the nation’s obesity epidemic on soda, sports drinks and other sweetened drinks, but it is one way that too many people consume too many calories, too easily. ... Obesity-related diseases and programs to fight expanding waistlines cost an estimated $147 billion a year in the United States. A 3 cent tax on every can of soda would raise $50 billion over 10 years, according to the Congressional Budget Office. ... A recent study from the University of Minnesota estimates that a 10 percent price increase would cut consumption by 8 percent to 10 percent. Obviously, the beverage industry would not want to see this kind of cut in profits. But from a public health perspective, that would be sweet news indeed.

NFL Roundup

Cowboys 26, Chiefs 20 KANSAS CITY, Mo. (AP) — Miles Austin scored the winning touchdown in overtime on a 60-yard catchand-run to cap a huge game in place of the injured Roy Williams, and the Dallas Cowboys escaped with a 26-20 victory Sunday over Kansas City. Austin had 10 catches for 250 yards as the Cowboys survived numerous mistakes against the winless Chiefs. Austin also had a tackle-breaking 59-yard touchdown catch to give the Cowboys (3-2) a 20-13 lead with 2:16 left in the fourth quarter. On both plays, he slipped the grasp of cornerback Maurice Leggett and then made safety Mike Brown miss. The loss dropped the Chiefs (0-5) to 2-28 in their last 30 games. Kansas City, winless for 315 days, tied it 20-20 on Matt Cassel’s 16-yard touchdown pass to Dwayne Bowe with 24 seconds left. But Austin was unstoppable, rescuing Dallas, which was penalized 13 times for 90 yards. He erased the team record of 246 yards that Hall of Famer Bob Hayes set on Nov. 13, 1966 against Washington. Chiefs linebacker Mike Vrabel made his 11th career touchdown catch to give Kansas City a 10-0 lead. Bengals 17, Ravens 14 BALTIMORE (AP) — Carson Palmer threw a 20-yard touchdown pass to Andre Caldwell with 22 seconds left to cap an 80-yard drive fueled by Baltimore penalties. All five of Cincinnati’s games this season have been decided by seven points for fewer. It appeared the Bengals (4-1) were destined to come out on the short end of this one until Palmer masterfully directed the final drive — with the help of three yellow flags. An illegal contact penalty against Chris Carr and an unnecessary roughness call against Ray Lewis preceded the topper, a pass interference penalty against Frank Walker on third-and-16 from the Baltimore 30 — although the infraction was called by the officials against Ed Reed. On the next play, Palmer found Caldwell over the middle for the winning score. After the following kickoff, thousands of fans directed a derisive chant toward the referee crew. Baltimore (3-2) has lost two straight. The Ravens were limited to one offensive touchdown after averaging 32.5 points in their first four games. A 52-yard interception return for a touchdown by Reed gave the Ravens a 7-0 lead in the second quarter. Eagles 33, Buccaneers 14 PHILADELPHIA (AP) — Donovan McNabb showed he was fine after missing two games with a broken rib, throwing for 264 yards and three touchdowns. Rookie Jeremy Maclin had two TD catches and the lopsided score allowed Michael Vick to take extra snaps at quarterback in the fourth quarter. He completed his first pass in 33 months and had an 11-yard run. The Eagles (3-1) improved to 11-0 after a bye week under coach Andy Reid. The Buccaneers (0-5) remain winless under new coach Raheem Morris and extended their losing to streak to nine games, dating to an 0-4 December that cost them a playoff spot. McNabb was injured running for a score in the season opener at Carolina. He sat out the next two games while Kevin Kolb became the first quarterback to throw for 300 yards in his first two career starts. McNabb didn’t hesitate to run, scrambling for 13 yards on his first play from scrimmage. On the next one, he fired a perfect 51-yard TD pass to Maclin to give the Eagles a 7-0 lead. Steelers 28, Lions 20 DETROIT (AP) — Ben Roethlisberger had a season-high three touchdowns passes for the Steelers (3-2), supported by thousands of black-and-gold clad fans. They went ahead on Rashard Mendenhall’s TD run midway through the first quarter and took a 15-point lead in the third on Roethlisberger’s 47-yard pass to rookie Mike Wallace. Detroit (1-4) drove into Pittsburgh territory on the ensuing series, but Daunte Culpepper’s up-forgrabs pass was intercepted by Ryan Clark. Culpepper bounced back with a 25-yard TD to Dennis Northcutt to pull within eight with 4:57 to go. The Steelers’ three-and-out drive gave Detroit the ball back at its 29 with 3:07 to go and two timeouts, but it got to the Pittsburgh 21 before stalling. Steelers linebacker James Harrison had three sacks, matching the total he had entering the game, and forced a fumble, much to the delight of folks who filled Ford Field. The game drew 59,333 fans and at least half looked and sounded like they were rooting for the visitors. Panthers 20, Redskins 17 CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Aided by a disputed call and Jake Delhomme’s bold third-down run, the Panthers (1-3) jump-started a sagging season at the expense of embattled Washington coach Jim Zorn. The Panthers scored the game’s final 18 points, with Jonathan Stewart’s 8-yard run with 9:21 left the go-ahead touchdown. The TD was set up when the Panthers recovered a muffed punt at the Washington 12. The maligned Delhomme later ran a bootleg for a first down with just under 2 minutes left to give the Panthers their first win. The Redskins (2-3) and Zorn took another defeat against a previously winless team despite leading 17-2 early in the third quarter. Giants 44, Raiders 7 EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. (AP) — After a week of concern over whether Eli Manning would make his 83rd straight start, he threw two scoring passes and led the Giants on touchdown drives on their first four series. Then Manning rested his sore heel. Manning tossed touchdown passes of 30 yards to Mario Manningham and 9 yards to first-round draft pick Hakeem Nicks. He finished 8 of 10 for 173 yards on a day the Giants gained 483 yards. New York (5-0) is off to its best start since winning the Super Bowl in 1990. Backup halfback Ahmad Bradshaw ran for 110 yards and scored on runs of 1 and 9 yards.

Cobey Hitchcock/The Mountain Press

SCHS senior RB Kel McCarter (25) found some rare running room on this first-half play Friday night at Morristown West. McCarter led the Smoky Bears rushing attack with just 30 net yards on 10 carries, but he was effective in the Red Zone with two TD carries of one and three yards respectively.

Big plays keep SCHS perfect By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer MORRISTOWN — Big plays turned in by the Sevier County Smoky Bears defense and special teams were key in SCHS’s big 31-3 upset at No.6 state-ranked Morristown West Trojans on Friday night. A closely fought battle turned in a big way for the Smoky Bears (7-0, 4-0) late in the first half and early in the third quarter, dictating West’s strategy for the remainder of the contest and playing against the Trojans (5-2, 3-1) own strength as a team. For the majority of the first half, both teams had trouble putting points on the board. Sevier County managed a 29-yard Jared Baxter field goal on its opening possession, but as the clock ticked inside the 2-minute mark of the first half, the score remained 3-0 Bears. But on a soggy night, the Sevier County offense finally caught fire again late in the first half. SCHS senior QB Zach Flynn completed four straight passes to gain momentum for a six-play, 79-yard scoring drive capped by senior RB Kel McCarter’s three-yard TD run with just 1:24 remaining until intermission, giving the Bears a 10-0 lead.

That drive was big, but SCHS junior DB Josh Johnson’s 36-yard interception return to paydirt just 36 seconds later was even bigger. “When Josh picked that ball off and scored ... that was huge ... that was huge,” said 18th-year SCHS head football coach Steve Brewer. Morristown West responded immediately with what turned out to be its only point-producing drive of the night — a 29-yard field goal with just 1 second on the second-quarter clock, cutting the Bear edge to 17-3 just before the half — but Sevier County still held all the momentum heading into the locker rooms. The Smoky Bear defense kept that momentum to start the third quarter, forcing West into a 4th-and-24 punt from its own 11. And that’s when junior Brandon Tinker and senior Jeremiah Foster combined to block the Trojan kick. Foster scooped up the loose ball and returned it three yards for a TD with 9:51 in the third, but the game was all but over after the play gave Sevier County a 24-3 edge. Trailing by three scores, West suddenly had to abandon its gameplan and team strength in a desperate effort to play catch up. “Jeremiah’s score really gave us some cushion,” said Brewer. “At that point, Morristown was going to

have to throw the football, and they are known more for running than throwing. “So I felt good that we were going to make them put the ball in the air a little bit.” But the West passing game went nowhere against the Smoky Bear defense. The Trojans managed just one 13-yard completion the entire second half and finished the game with just 35 passing yards. “It was just a complete team effort,” said Brewer about the win. “It was just a good night for us, and I hope we can keep things going.” The win not only keeps the Bears unblemished, it also puts them in firm control of District 2-AAA, the IMAC Conference. With just three regular-season games left this season — all of them district clashes against Cherokee, South-Doyle and Morristown East — many in Sevier County are beginning to talk of a perfect 10-0 season. But that’s something you won’t hear from this 2009 Smoky Bears team. “Our goal is to go 8-0 now,” said Brewer. “We can’t afford to look down the road, and we certainly aren’t good enough to overlook anybody.” n

Kiffin, Vols looking for ‘mo’ after ’Dawgs By BETH RUCKER Associated Press Writer KNOXVILLE — Ask Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin who his Volunteers’ biggest rival is, and he won’t tell you Florida or Alabama. “Georgia, because of what we need to do recruiting, will be the biggest matchup for this staff and for our team,” he said. Kiffin and his staff hope to use momentum from a 45-19 win Saturday over their new biggest rival to land a few recruits during their bye week. One of the first-year coach’s first pledges was that he would do whatever it took to land the best prospects in the country. He delivered on that promise this season, landing a top 10 class just months after being hired. “We’ll be recruiting from tomorrow for the whole week,” Kiffin said. “We’ll have our maximum guys out. We’ll be everywhere and we’re going to find the best players in the country.” Kiffin emphasized the Georgia game to his players due to its importance in recruiting. Tennessee doesn’t produce many elite prospects, and 12 current Vols hail from the bordering state. Kiffin also promised his Vols (3-3, 1-2 Southeastern Conference) they’d never lose to the Bulldogs while he was coach. He got off to a good start

Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin, right, talks to quarterback Jonathan Crompton (8) during the first half of a NCAA college football game against Georgia on Saturday in Knoxville. Tennessee won 45-19. in what turned out to be his first SEC victory thanks to some help from Jonathan Crompton, who passed for a career-high 310 yards and threw for four touchdowns. The Vols’ passing game had faltered at times this season, with Crompton struggling with his accuracy and his receivers often dropping passes when he was on target. But by halftime Saturday,

Crompton had already thrown for 205 yards and three touchdowns. He finished 20-for-27. Crompton was a perfect 4-for-4 for 67 yards on a drive late in the first half, finding Marsalis Teague on a 5-yard touchdown pass for a 21-10 lead with 2:40 left. He also connected with Gerald Jones on a 51-yard score, the Vols’ longest pass of the season.

“They ran it to the exact depth, broke it off when we expected and then you get the ball to them and let them make plays,” Crompton said. Despite being Tennessee’s most productive receiver returning from last season, Jones had struggled with drops and mistakes while recovering from an ankle injury and wrist surgery.

California win puts Johnson in control

SEC 1-2 after Tide slides past Longhorns By RALPH D. RUSSO AP College Football Writer Alabama’s steady rise in the rankings has left the Crimson Tide with a clear view of No. 1 Florida. Alabama jumped Texas into second-place behind top-ranked Florida in the AP Top 25 on Sunday, giving the Southeastern Conference the Nos. 1 and 2 teams in the country. The Crimson Tide moved up one spot after rolling over Mississippi 22-3. Texas, which had been No. 2 all season, slipped a spot after sputtering early in a 38-14 victory against Colorado. The Gators and Tim Tebow beat LSU 13-3. They have been an overwhelming No. 1 since the preseason, but support for Alabama has steadily grown. Florida received 50 of 60 first-place votes from the media panel, a season low. The Crimson Tide received 10 first-place votes, up from five last week. It’s the second time in the past two seasons that Alabama and Florida have held the top two spots in the rankings. Last year, the Crimson Tide was No. 1 and the Gators No. 2 for two weeks before they played in the SEC title game. Texas for the first time this season did not receive a first-place vote. The Longhorns might be able to get some support back by beating No. 20 Oklahoma on Saturday in the Red River Rivalry. No. 4 Virginia Tech, No. 5 Boise State and No. 6 Southern California each moved up one spot. In the battle for Ohio, Ohio State moved up to No. 7 and ahead of No. 8 Cincinnati after a 31-13 victory over previously unbeaten Wisconsin. The Bearcats, who were idle Saturday and have a Big East showdown with No. 21 South Florida on Thursday night, were ahead of the Buckeyes in the rankings last week for the first time since 1951. Miami is No. 9 and LSU dropped six spots to No. 10 after its first loss. In the USA Today coaches’ poll, Florida is No. 1, Texas is No. 2 and Alabama is No. 3. In the Harris Poll, the top three is the same as the AP poll. The coaches’ poll and Harris poll are used in the BCS standings, which will be released next week for the first time this season. In the AP Top 25, No. 11 Iowa had another narrow escape, beating Michigan 30-28 to stay unbeaten. No. 12 TCU also had a close call, but stayed undefeated with a 20-17 victory in the cold and wind against Air Force. No. 13 is Oregon followed by Penn State and Nebraska, which vaulted six spots to 15th after beating Missouri on the road. After the Cornhuskers are Big 12 rivals Oklahoma State and Kansas. No. 18 is BYU, Georgia Tech is 19th and Oklahoma No. 20. The final five has South Florida and South Carolina, then three teams that reentered the rankings this week. No. 23 Houston moved back into the rankings after beating Mississippi State 31-28 in Starkville. No. 24 Utah rallied in the fourth quarter to beat Colorado State 24-17 and No. 25 Notre Dame got back into the AP rankings on an off week. The Fighting Irish host USC on Saturday, with a chance to drop out or make a big move back up the rankings. While the SEC holds the top two spots in the Top 25, the conference only has four ranked teams this week, down from six last week. The Big 12 has the most ranked teams with five.

Los Angeles Angels’ Torii Hunter, left, Howie Kendrick, center, and Chone Figgins celebrate after the Angels’ 7-6 win over the Boston Red Sox in Game 3 of an American League baseball division series in Boston on Sunday.

Angels hammer Papelbon, finish sweep of Red Sox By JIMMY GOLEN AP Sports Writer BOSTON — Torii Hunter emerged from the visitors’ clubhouse at Fenway Park to spray champagne over the fans and family gathered there. Erick Aybar did him one better, handing over bottles of bubbly to those who came from California to see the Los Angeles Angels go for the sweep. History gave no reason to hope for such a celebration. The Angels and Vladimir Guerrero shrugged off their postseason failures and swept away the Red Sox on Sunday, scoring three runs off Jonathan Papelbon in the ninth inning to beat Boston 7-6 and advance to the AL championship series. It was the first postseason sweep in Angels franchise history. And they did it against the team that has knocked them out of the playoffs the previous four times they met. “I told you guys earlier: It’s going to be a different scene,� Hunter said in the clubhouse afterward. “Vladdy came through. That’s probably one of the biggest hits of his career. They’ve been waiting for him to do it, and he did it.� Papelbon was one strike away from extending the series with three different batters, but Aybar singled on a two-strike pitch, Chone Figgins walked after fouling off a full-count offering and Bobby Abreu fouled off three straight pitches before doubling in one run. Hunterwaswalkedintentionally before Guerrero singled the first pitch to center and Figgins and Abreu raced home to give Los Angeles a 7-6 lead. Major league saves leader Brian Fuentes pitched the ninth,

and when Aybar caught Dustin Pedroia’s popup to end the game, pumping his right arm even as he tracked the ball with his left, the Angels advanced. “It’s nice to be going home and playing again, instead of going home and it’s over,� said pitcher John Lackey, who was part of the Angels teams that were eliminated by Boston in three times in the previous five years. “This is the most fun for me, and I’ve got a ring. That says a lot.� Aneight-timeAll-Starand former AL MVP, Guerrero has a .321 career batting average, 407 regular-season homers and 1,318 RBIs. But he’d managed only one extra-base hit in 69 at-bats going into Game 3, and he had one RBI in 19 playoff games since his grand slam against Boston in the 2004 division series. And he came through against Papelbon, who had never before allowed a run in 27 postseason innings.

“You’re not going to get to him too often. But we did this afternoon,� Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “And I felt great for Vlad. hopefully, that’s a momentum-builder for him. ... I know he’s relieved. He’s excited about contributing. And hopefully it will be the start of something good.� For the AL West champion Angels, it was a chance to extend their tribute to pitcher Nick Adenhart, who was killed in an April car crash with a man who has been charged with drunken driving. As they streamed out of the dugout to celebrate, and Jered Weaver carried Adenhart’s jersey onto the field. “When it comes down to honoring Nick Adenhart, and what happened in April in Anaheim, yes, it probably was the biggest hit (of my career),� Guerrero said. “Because I’m dedicating that to a former teammate, a guy that passed away.�

FONTANA, Calif. (AP) — Jimmie Johnson is back in control of NASCAR’s Chase for the championship. The three-time defending Sprint Cup champion easily pulled away from Jeff Gordon following a restart with three laps left to win the Pepsi 500 on Sunday at Auto Club Speedway for his fifth victory of the year and 45th overall. The win was Johnson’s fourth at the 2-mile oval and sent a message to the rest of the contenders he has no plans of giving up his spot atop the series easily. The native Californian took his time drinking in the moment, doing several burnouts and goofing off along the back straightaway before NASCAR officials reminded him he needed to make a stop in Victory Lane. “I just wanted to have a little fun with it,� Johnson said. He certainly earned it after another signature performance at a track he has turned into his own personal playground through the years. He won so effortlessly all Gordon could do afterward was shrug his shoulders. “What else can you say? They’re the best out there,� Gordon said. “They’ve won the last three championships. They’re going to be hard to beat for this one. Really, unless they make a mistake, I don’t see how they lose it.� Johnson, who led 126 laps, dominated the second half of the race but had to sweat out a series of doublefile restarts following a number of late-race collisions, including an eight-car pileup that forced a 22-minute red flag with six laps remaining. Waiting out the delay, Johnson worried he didn’t have enough car to hold off Gordon. He shouldn’t have. His No. 48 Chevrolet roared away from his Hendrick Motorsports teammate and he quickly put the rest of the field in his rearview mirror to propel him into the points lead for the first time all season. “That’s it, that’s what we want,� Johnson said. “We’ve just got to keep chipping away.� Juan Pablo Montoya was third, his fourth straight top-five finish. All that consistency, however, hasn’t helped Montoya make up any ground on Johnson. “We have four or five in a row and I’ve been losing points to the leader,� said Montoya, who trails Johnson by 58 points. “(You’re not) going to make any points on anybody. Everybody that runs good is going to be there. You just got to make sure you don’t lose any.� Mark Martin, who started the day with an 18-point lead over Johnson, was fourth and now trails Johnson by 12 points heading into Saturday night’s race at Charlotte.

Main Street in Preston, Kan. is seen Friday morning. Main Street will feature a new business, Heartland Funeral Home and Crematory, in the brown building on the right, after the owners renovate the building.

Arizona undertaker seeks to revive dying Kansas town PRESTON, Kan. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Like hundreds of small towns across rural America, Preston has boarded-up storefronts lining its Main Street. The roof has fallen in at the long-abandoned high school, while peeling paint and broken windows disfigure once stately, now vacant homes. This central Kansas farming town of 170 people is dying â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and an Arizona undertaker has a plan to bring it back to life. Two massive concrete grain elevators mark this as an iconic Kansas farming community, a cluster of homes tucked among undulating fields of wheat, corn and soybeans in Pratt County. For all its simple beauty, the county has slowly hemorrhaged residents: Since 1930, nearly 30 percent have left, making it an all-too-common anecdote of a fading prairie population. But for Arizona transplants Ken and Donna Stanton, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the perfect place to build a mortuary and crematorium, the unlikely cornerstone of an ambitious community revitalization plan that features Old West-styled building facades, old-time street lights and faux-board sidewalks. Joining the couple are more than 30 relatives and friends who plan to establish their homes, businesses and a non-denominational church in the town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is happening to Preston is truly a godsend,â&#x20AC;? said Mayor Wayne Scott, who graduated from the high

schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s last class, in 1966. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know too many towns in rural America, across the country, that are having an opportunity like this take place for them. I personally consider it a blessing this is happening in our town.â&#x20AC;? For the Mesa, Ariz. couple, Preston has become a labor of love borne of deep-seated family roots. Donna Stantonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s late father, Don Cox, grew up in Pratt County, and her uncle, Dean Cox, still lives in Preston. The Stantons have taken family vacations in the town for 30 years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My father-in-law loved it here. He had a dream to see this little town revitalized and we kind of caught the vision,â&#x20AC;? said Ken Stanton, 53. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was kind of dwindling and drying up. I thought this was an opportunity to provide a service.â&#x20AC;? In its 1960s heyday, Preston boasted a post office, restaurant, hardware store, drug store and two grocery stores. Today the only businesses left are the grain elevators and a butcher shop, along with City Hall and a senior citizensâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; center. Like other small towns,

many of its residents left for jobs in bigger cities, and small businesses dried up along with its population. The advent of cars made shopping in Pratt, 12 miles away, or Hutchinson, 41 miles down the road, an easy drive. In November, the Stantons bought a shuttered bar and grill â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a brick building built in 1915 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to remodel as a funeral home that they hope to open in December â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the first new business in their ambitious plan. The crematorium will be the only one in the area and they expect it to draw business from a 50-mile radius. The family also bought two residential city blocks for homes, a second down-

town lot, and are looking to buy another downtown building for a â&#x20AC;&#x2122;50s-style restaurant. They said the biggest expense â&#x20AC;&#x201D; labor â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will come from family. Preston is the latest Kansas small town to get the makeover treatment. The Kansas Farm Bureau started its Kansas Hometown Prosperity Initiative in 2008, picking as its pilot projects the towns of Sedan, Onaga and Atwood. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had government work on rural development for nearly 100 years and look what we have: Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had 100 consecutive years of â&#x20AC;&#x2122;out migrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; in rural America. It is time we stood up and did something about it ourselves,â&#x20AC;? said Steve

Baccus, president of the Kansas Farm Bureau. The bureauâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stimulus program aims to develop community leadership, promote small business entrepreneurship, engage youth and staunch the transfer of wealth that leaves rural counties when aging residents die.

The irony of a mortuary as the cornerstone of a community revival plan is not lost on Ken Stanton or his family. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a place people are dying to get into,â&#x20AC;? he quipped. His wife added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are coming to Preston to raise the dead.â&#x20AC;?

19th-century Hawaiian priest among five new saints By FRANCES D’EMILIO Associated Press Writer VATICAN CITY — Pope Benedict XVI canonized five new saints Sunday, including a 19th-century priest whose work with leprosy patients on a Hawaiian island has been hailed by U.S. President Barack Obama as inspiring those helping AIDS sufferers in today’s world. Among the pilgrims packing St. Peter’s Basilica was Hawaii resident Audrey Toguchi, an 80-year-old retired teacher whose recovery from lung cancer a decade ago was called miraculous by the Vatican. She had prayed to Belgiumborn Jozef De Veuster, more commonly known as Father Damien, who himself died from leprosy in 1889 after contracting the disease while working with leprosy patients who were living in isolation on Molokai island. Toguchi and her doctor, Walter Chang, joined a procession of faithful bringing relics of the new saints to


Benedict at the central altar of the basilica. The pontiff said the newly canonized had given of themselves totally without “calculation or personal gain.” “Their perfection, in the logic of a faith that is humanly incomprehensible at times, consists in no longer placing themselves at the center, but choosing to go against the flow and live according to the Gospel,” Benedict said in his homily. Official delegations for St. Damien included King Albert II and Queen Paolo of Belgium and, for the United States, Obama’s new envoy to the Vatican, Miguel H. Diaz, and Hawaii Sen. Daniel Kahikina Akaka. Obama, who was born and spent part of his childhood in Hawaii, has said he remembers stories about Damien caring for people suffering from leprosy, also known as Hansen’s disease, and its stigma. In a message for the canonization, Obama noted

centuries by societies and even families. Two leprosy patients participated in one of the basilica processions. “The way leprosy was perceived then is how AIDS is perceived today” by many people, said Gail Miller, a pilgrim from Auburn Hills, Michigan. Her par-

After the ceremony, the pope came out on the basilica’s central balcony to greet some 40,000 faithful in the square. Speaking in French, he urged people to pray and help those involved in the battle against leprosy and “other forms of leprosy caused by lack of love or cowardliness.”

ish church, St. Damien of Molokai, in Pontiac, Mich., became the first U.S. church to be named in the saint’s honor. Benedict praised the missionary, saying that “not without fear and repugnance, he chose to go to Molokai to serve the lepers who were there, abandoned by all,” exposed himself to leprosy, and “felt at home with them.” A Honolulu pilgrim, Gloria Rodrigues, said she saw a connection between Damien and the AIDS problem today. “He was a servant of the out-

Soon-to-be-ex-hubby’s girfriend trying to turn son against mother



Baby Blues

Dear Annie: I divorced 18 months ago after being separated for three years. During this entire time, my exhusband has had a nasty girlfriend who is always in the middle of every situation. I don’t care for this woman at all. My ex and I have a 5-year-old son. The girlfriend has used him as a messenger, telling him things she wanted him to repeat to me. I confronted my ex about it, but instead of things improving, they have gotten worse. This woman broadcasts to everyone who will listen that I am a bad mom and a terrible person. She recently posted on Facebook that I was having affairs while married and also had an abortion. These are baldfaced lies. My son just started school, and I worry other parents may hear about these accusations. The only way to get rid of this woman is to keep my child away from his father, and I truly do not want to do that. He is a great dad. I just need his girlfriend to back off. What should I do? -- The Ex-Wife Dear Ex: If your exhusband is truly a great dad, he would not want his son to be misled or confused by this woman, nor would he allow his son’s mother to be publicly trampled and lied about. He has an obligation to make his girlfriend stop badmouthing you before her attempts at defamation risk losing him his visitation rights. Perhaps if he understands the consequences, he will put an end to it. If

necessary, discuss it with your lawyer. Dear Annie: My husband’s self-esteem is so low these days that he blames himself for everything. Last week, I was having hot flashes that kept me awake so I slept on the couch. My husband automatically assumed it was his snoring and said, “If I snore, wake me up and I’ll sleep downstairs.” Tonight at dinner, the chicken didn’t taste quite as good as usual, and he said, “I must have overcooked it on the grill.” It’s always his fault. When he has a good idea, he phrases it as “we thought,” even though I had nothing to do with it. He has so little selfconfidence it’s as if he is afraid to take ownership of his opinions. When he has free time, he mopes around or watches TV and allows me to do all the planning. He expresses no interest in anything, and it’s driving me crazy. Please help. -- Lonely for My Old Partner Dear Lonely: One reason a man can develop a lack of motivation is a drop in testosterone. Another is depression. Please insist your husband get a complete checkup and specifically ask the doctor to check his testosterone levels. If everything is OK, ask him to see a therapist to find

out why he has lost interest in everything. Dear Annie: Your response to “Contemplating Divorce in the Midwest” was right on. She’s been married 38 years to an emotionally abusive man who cheats on her. I worked my butt off for 23 years trying to please my ex-husband. I worked two jobs and raised our kids. As the years passed, the verbal abuse and humiliation kept getting worse until finally I’d had enough. A few weeks after I left, I ran into a neighbor. He told me he heard my ex yelling at our 16-year-old son that he hoped when he married, his wife would leave him, too. My son calmly replied, “I would never treat my wife the way you treated Mom.” Leaving was hard, but it was one of the best things I could have done for my kids and myself. -- Happy Ending Dear Happy: Your son sounds like a smart, compassionate young man in spite of his father.
