PIGEON FORGE — City officials are set to move forward on a project that threatened to slow construction on Birds Creek Road. On the agenda for the City Commission’s meeting at 5:30 p.m. Monday in City Hall is a pair of bids to relocate a water line in the area of Catons Chapel
School. The group is expected to accept the lower of those two and give the go-ahead on the work. That would mean Sevierville firm Charles Blalock & Sons, which also has the contract with the Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) for work to realign the road, would be in charge of the effort. Its bid of $118,768.50 was more than $70,000 cheaper than the only other offer submitted. Officials worried the work,
which apparently was not adequately planned for, could hold up the long-awaited effort to improve the road. That project includes straightening out some of the most crooked portions of the road, removing some dangerous shoulder drop-offs and moving hillsides off the road. However, that work can’t proceed near the school until the water line has been moved. While Pigeon Forge Public Works Director Mark Miller hoped the
city could tack the work on to the state’s contract and have it completed as the road work proceeds, avoiding the lengthy delays of engineering and rebidding it, that didn’t pan out. If the Blalock offer is accepted Monday, Miller said the contractor will have to secure insurance for the project and the city will have to hold a pre-construction conference with them before See Bid, Page A4
Breaking the Cycle Domestic abuse victim shares story By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer
End near for Chile miners Drill reaches 33 men trapped underground for 66 days Page A14
Weather Today Mostly sunny High: 83°

For Donna, an East Tennessee woman who was the victim of domestic abuse for more than a decade, the turning point was a broken hip. “I was going into the bedroom to get away from him, and he followed me,” she recalled. “He was saying, ‘Didn’t you hear me?’ He hit my shoulder so hard that I went flat on the floor. He said, ‘What, can’t you get up?’ really sarcastic — and I couldn’t. He called the ambulance, and they came and got me. It turned out my hip was broken in two places. That’s when I decided I needed to get help — or else the next time, it would be a hearse coming for me.” The scenario is all too common today, especially in our region: According to a recent Violent Policy Center report, Tennessee is ranked the no. 5 state in the nation where women are murdered by men (Nevada is ranked no. 1). In the national study, where the victim-to-offender relationship could be identified, 92 percent of female victims were murdered by someone they knew. Of these, 64 percent were wives or intimate acquaintances of their killers. Twelve times as many females were murdered by a male they knew than were killed my male strangers. Donna first met the man who would become her husband when they worked together. “He was married at the time, but they were having problems and he would want to come see me. He wasn’t bad-looking, and I liked the way he talked to me — he was good to me at first.” See Victim, Page A4

Domestic violence seems to be on the rise as the economy continues to decline, catching women, children and even some men in its clutches. Support organizations like SafeSpace and Safe Harbor are working to break the cycle.
Abuse at home victimizes children mentally and physically By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer When domestic violence occurs, children are always hurt if they’re in the home — regardless of whether they’re the physical target. “Children are the hardest part to deal with in domestic violence cases,” said
Laura Brooks, a school resource officer with the Sevierville Police Department. “We’re adults and we can rationalize behavior, but children hold on to that fear. We try and explain to them that adults make mistakes just like kids do, that we argue just like they do — but that still doesn’t make it right, and there are
consequences for their actions, too.” Brooks noted that it’s a situation she sees students go through too often, since domestic violence is “one of those crimes that’s always with us. We have a rash of burglaries and car thefts, but there’s never a ‘down period’ for domestic violence.” In fact, if anything,
it’s on the rise. “Anytime you see an economy like we’re in now, there’s an increase. When there are money issues, that causes stress. With the loss of jobs comes the loss of self-esteem. It’s a community-wide problem.” Brooks added that domestic violence is also a “gender-free
crime.” “It is typically women who are abused, but men are the forgotten victims.” Safe Harbor Child Advocacy Center serves children who have been abused from birth to age 17 in the Fourth Judicial District of Tennessee, which includes Cocke, See Children, Page A4

Merwyn Borders, left, looks over some of the books he was selling at the Seymour First Baptist Church rummage sale Saturday. The event raised money for the church’s missions program.
SEYMOUR — The fall rummage sale at Seymour First Baptist Church proved a popular place to start the morning Saturday. “When they first opened the doors, it was like Dollywood on opening day,” said Murrell Geagley. Geagley was there to pick up comes clothes and other items. He said he actually uses them for charity himself. Local schools don’t have clothes to give out to students who might be in need for different reasons, he said, so if he hears about
a problem in the area he takes clothes out to families himself. The sale drew a good crowd throughout the morning, as people picked over clothes, furniture, old computers and other items. Merwyn Borders was overseeing the sale of books. He acknowledged his last name fit for that role, although he has no affiliation with the book store. The rummage sales have gone on for several years, but he said he thinks the recession has caused more people to take advantage of the bargains. See Rummage, Page A4

LeConte Breast Center presents
The LeConte Breast Center is offering extended hours for Mammography Services, with evening appointments available from 5 p.m. â€“ 7:30 p.m.
!" Mammography continues to be the most important tool in the early detection of breast cancer. Screening mammograms are recommended at age 35 to establish a baseline, and then recommended that women age 40 and older should have an annual mammogram.
" " The Breast Center at LeConte Medical Center offers digital mammography â€“ the latest imaging technology that could save your life. Digital mammography uses the same technique as traditional film mammography, except that the digital image is recorded directly into a computer that can then be enlarged or highlighted for the radiologist to review. The convenience of a digital image also allows for other physicians or specialists to view the image more readily if consultation is needed. To schedule your mammogram during Mammo Mondays, or any business day, call 865.446.8000. Physician referral is not needed to schedule your annual screening mammogram. Remember, the best protection is early detection.

Then he became more controlling, parking behind her trailer and demanding to know where she had been when she arrived home. â€œHe would literally rip my clothes off and say, â€˜Let me see how many hickeys you have on you!â€™ Anytime Iâ€™d try to get away from him, he would come and find me.â€? In the meantime, he had divorced his wife (which was his third) and continued to see Donna. â€œI thought if we got married, that maybe things would change,â€? she said. And for a short time, things did seem to get better: Donna had inherited some money from her father, and she and her new husband used it to make a deposit on a house. Soon, however, Donna began to feel like a prisoner in her own home. â€œI never knew when he was going to go off about something. I would have to fix his food and set it down for him before I even started fixing mine.â€? She also found out that he had been renting an apartment with his third wife during this
â€œWe ended an interview early yesterday because the child was too traumatized,â€? Stith said. â€œOne of the most important things is to believe the child,â€? added Donna Koester, Safe Harbor executive director. Batterers often abuse their children as well as their partners. According to the American Humane Association, a review of
several studies revealed that 45-70 percent of survivors in shelters reported that their abusers also committed some form of child abuse. It has been concluded from these studies that child abuse is at least 15 times more likely to occur in households where domestic violence is present than in those without adult violence.
time. â€œShe actually called me and told me,â€? Donna said. â€œShe was outside talking to me while he was inside, sleeping on the couch. They must have had a blow-up after that, because he called and said it was me who he loved and he was coming home to stay.â€? Donna was angry but felt helpless. â€œThe police had been called out numerous times to our home, but I never wanted to press charges. I was afraid of him, and I had nowhere else to go. I knew that when he got out of jail, heâ€™d be coming for me.â€? He would even tell Donnaâ€™s own family â€” including her sister â€” stories to turn them against her, including lies about her having a drinking problem. When she finally left for a hotel after her broken hip had healed, she learned her husband
had been there looking for her. She called the sheriffâ€™s department, which referred her to SafeSpace, an organization providing a safe haven to domestic violence victims since 1976. â€œI hadnâ€™t heard of SafeSpace,â€? Donna said. â€œThere are a lot of women who are in my position who donâ€™t know there are places they can go for help.â€? Representatives from the organization took her to find a new place to live and gave her the resources she needed to get on her feet â€” and safely away from the man who had abused her. SafeSpaceâ€™s mission is to end domestic violence in the lives of all people, especially women and children from Sevier, Cocke and Jefferson counties.

â€œWeâ€™ve found with the bad economy, the sales not only help us, but they also help a lot more of the people that come here,â€? he said. Revenues from the sales go to the churchâ€™s missions program. That means it can be spent on out of state or even international missions. Right now, the church is helping another church in a poor area of West Virginia convert an old school into a youth center. It also sent aid to Nashville after the floods.
But a lot of the money also stays in Seymour and the surrounding area, according to missions coordinator Frank Enter. â€œA lot of the money goes back into Seymour, Enter said. â€œWe build a lot of wheelchair ramps for people when we know they need them.â€? Furniture thatâ€™s not sold is stored away and still goes to good use as well, he said. â€œWe take furniture all the time and we put it in a semi trailer so if someone has a fire or something we take it to them,â€? he said. n firstname.lastname@example.org

Obama hits GOP proposal to cut education spending WASHINGTON (AP) — Offering voters a reason to keep Democrats in power on Capitol Hill, President Barack Obama says Republicans would cut education spending and put the country’s economic future at risk if they had their way. A quality education is paramount, Obama said. He suggested that federal spending on education is one area where he would not compromise. “What I’m not prepared to do is shortchange our children’s education,” Obama said Saturday in his weekly radio and Internet address. Obama has spent much of the past two weeks contrasting a GOP proposal to cut
spending, presumably including on education, with the billions of dollars he’s investing to improve learning from kindergarten through college. That includes money for public schools, community colleges and to help make it cheaper and easier for families to afford higher education for their children. This week, Obama announced a new public-private sector partnership to help match community college graduates and businesses with jobs to fill. The White House also held its first-ever summit on the state of community colleges. In his weekly message, Obama acknowledged that the country faces tight fiscal
for sending lawmakers home for the Nov. 2 congressional elections without voting on a series of expiring Bush-era tax cuts. Obama wants to keep those tax cuts for families and individuals with incomes below $250,000 and impose higher tax rates on everyone else, including the wealthiest Americans. Republicans want to extend all the Bush tax cuts. “The Obama tax hikes are yet another job killing burden that the American people and American employers cannot afford. Raising taxes on anyone in the middle of a recession is the worst thing we can do,” Barrasso said, although the recession technically has ended.
Suicide surge: Schools confront anti-gay bullying
America moves on from spill; coast feels abandoned BIRMINGHAM, Ala. (AP) — About 800 miles from the Gulf of Mexico, Dave Edmonds is struggling to remind people about the BP oil spill. There aren’t many magazine covers with photos of oil-drenched birds now that BP has capped its massive gusher at the bottom of the sea. People aren’t looking online for information about the historic spill like they were a few weeks ago. So Edmonds, who lives on the Delaware coast, has started a nonprofit organization to keep the disaster on people’s minds with a website and social networking campaign. “Awareness has dropped. People don’t really care about the people who were affected. They don’t care about the fish life,” said Edmonds, founder of Taking Back the Gulf. For Gulf residents fighting for economic survival, a nation’s short attention span is deeply unsettling, especially with oil still washing ashore. Yet it’s unclear whether Americans are turning their attention elsewhere, or whether it’s just the media that have. Either way, people like Chef Chris Sherrill feel abandoned. “It’s amazing how quickly the American public forgot that this was one of the worst manmade disasters in U.S. history,” he said. His wedding catering and event business in Gulf Shores, Ala., is teetering because few brides are still coming to the beach for weddings. The slight isn’t necessarily intentional. Walking with his girlfriend in a park in Des Moines, Iowa, Michael Gauthier said he wonders about the oil’s lingering impact on the environment, and he fears for Gulf residents. “It’s not in your face every day so you forget about it. Who doesn’t have bills to pay and work to go to? Who has time to think about what’s going on in Louisiana?” said Gauthier, 26.
times, but he said a good education is too important to the country’s future prosperity to do it on the cheap. “At a time when most of the new jobs being created will require some kind of higher education, when countries that out-educate us today will out-compete us tomorrow, giving our kids the best education is an economic imperative,” he said. Republicans devoted their weekly address to what the party says are Obama’s broken promises on jobs, the economy and health care. Sen. John Barrasso, R-Wyo., touched on the high unemployment rate, holding at 9.6 percent, and criticized Democratic leaders

U.S. astronaut Scott Kelly, a crew member of the mission to the International Space Station, accompanied by his brother Mark Kelly, right, walks to the rocket ahead of the launch of the Soyuz-FG rocket at the Russian-leased cosmodrome in Baikonur, Kazakhstan on Oct. 8.
Astronaut twins to join up in orbit CAPE CANAVERAL, Fla. (AP) — The stars may have finally aligned for the world’s only space sibling team. Astronaut Scott Kelly is circling the planet, fresh into a 5 1/2-month space station mission. His identical twin, Mark, will join him next year, if NASA’s shuttle schedule holds up. Together, they will become the first blood relatives to meet up in space. “It’s something we hoped would happen,” Mark said. “It wasn’t done by design. But we’re fortunate. I think it will be fun for us.” ScottistheInternational Space Station’s next commander. He took off aboard a Russian Soyuz rocket early Friday — texting and joking with his brother right until launch. Mark is space shuttle Endeavour’s next commander. He’s due to take off at the end of February and knock on the space station door March 1. It’s currently slated to be NASA’s last shuttle flight. Don’t expect any handshakes when the Kellys unite more than 200 miles up. The 46-year-old brothers — Navy captains and former fighter pilots — have never shaken each other’s hands and don’t plan to start just because the space station cameras
are rolling. Rather, count on embraces and even armwrestling when the hatches pop open between the space station and Endeavour, and the world does a double take.
NEW YORK (AP) — A spate of teen suicides linked to anti-gay harassment is prompting school officials nationwide to rethink their efforts against bullying — and in the process, risk entanglement in a bitter ideological debate. The conflict: Gayrights supporters insist that any effective antibullying program must include specific components addressing harassment of gay youth. But religious conservatives condemn that approach as an unnecessary and manipulative tactic to sway young people’s views of homosexuality. It’s a highly emotional topic. Witness the hate mail — from the left and right — directed at Minnesota’s AnokaHennepin School District while it reviews its anti-bullying strategies in the aftermath of a gay student’s suicide. The invective is “some of the worst I’ve ever seen,” Superintendent Dennis Carlson said. “We may invite the Department of Justice to come in and help
us mediate this discussion between people who seem to want to go at each other.” Carlson’s district in the northern suburbs of Minneapolis is politically diverse, and there are strong, divided views on how to combat bullying. “We believe the bullying policy should put the emphasis on the wrong actions of the bullies and not the characteristics of the victims,” said Chuck Darrell of the conservative Minnesota Family
Council. That’s a wrongheaded, potentially dangerous approach, according to the Gay, Lesbian and Straight Education Network — which tries to improve the school climate for gay students nationwide. “Policies have to name the problem in order to have an impact,” said GLSEN’s executive director, Eliza Byard. “Only the ones that name it see an improvement.” According to a 2009 GLSEN survey of 7,261

Zoo hopes baby bear is on the way
MEMPHIS (AP) — Memphis Zoo officials are hoping that Haley, its female polar bear, is on the nest. So they’ve given her some privacy in the black bears’ exhibit in the hopes that she is pregnant. “She’ll go over there and make a little den,” said Tiffany Langston, zoo communications specialist. Haley has gained weight and zoo officials have suspected for several months that she might be pregnant.
Fisk proposes revised deal
NASHVILLE (AP) — Fisk University presented a new plan Friday that it hopes will persuade a judge to allow the financially troubled university to sell a share of its modern art collection to an Arkansas museum. The court filing by the school said it was addressing the concerns expressed by Nashville Chancellor Ellen Hobbs Lyle when she rejected an earlier proposal this summer. Chief among those was the concern that the agreement could have allowed the Crystal Bridges Museum of American Art, in Bentonville, Ark., to take full ownership of the collection if Fisk was unable to meet certain financial commitments. “Under the modified agreement, no transfer of interest away from Fisk or Crystal Bridges may occur without approval of this court,” the brief reads.

Man accused of killing 6 maintains innocence MEMPHIS (AP) — A man accused of killing six people at a Memphis home maintained his innocence during testimony Saturday, saying he hid under a bed during the slayings and didn’t report them to police because he feared for his life. Jessie Dotson, 35, has pleaded not guilty to six first-degree murder charges and three counts of attempted first-degree murder
in what is being called one of Memphis’ worst mass slayings. According to WMC-TV, Dotson, who was in a gang, took the stand Saturday and testified that he didn’t call police because he risked being killed by fellow gang members. Defense attorneys contend the March 2008 massacre was perpetrated by angry gang members. When questioned by a defense
attorney on Saturday, Dotson said: “Gangs don’t call police.” While under a bed in one of the back bedrooms, Dotson said he heard a lot of noise coming from the front of the house, including a girl screaming. Eventually there was silence, and he said he went to the front room where he saw the victims, including the children, all of whom he thought were dead.

Race to Top to be good for Tennessee I’m not sure it’s entirely fair to rate a school system solely on comparative test scores. Trouble is, people want to know how good the school system they are supporting with their tax dollars really is. Is there a better way? Maybe. Tennessee received some $500 million in federal money for being one of the first states approved for Race to the Top funding. The stimulus law signed in 2009, while scorned by many, contained $4.35 billion for Race to the Top, a competitive grant program to encourage and reward states that put in plans for real education reform. Tennessee officials set out to get some of that money, and thanks to a coalition of state, education and business leaders, they did it. Tennessee and Delaware won the competition’s initial round. So what does it mean? It means half of that money will come to local school systems that come up with innovative, creative and interesting ideas for enhancing their education efforts. The other half will stay with the state education department for such things as professional development, recruitment and retention efforts, and oversight. The money will be used for data systems to track progress and student growth, ways to recruit and keep good teachers and reward the really good ones, and coming up with standards and assessments to measure students and administrators. The state’s plan was endorsed by the Legislature, the teachers union, every local school system and a coalition of businesses. If you ask a manufacturer in this state what his biggest challenge is, he just might tell you it’s hiring people with the skills needed to do the work. Keeping kids in school long enough to graduate with knowledge and skills, then moving them on to technical training or higher ed, ought to be everybody’s goal. You’ve got to challenge students, make them work hard, encourage them and, most of all, teach them. I attended a five-hour seminar in Knoxville the other day aimed at telling journalists about Race to the Top. I came away encouraged. In many states such reforms would have met opposition a almost every turn. Legislators would have questioned it, teacher unions would have fought it and local school systems would have resisted it. Instead, Tennessee led the way with support — almost unanimous support — from all segments of this great state. Tennessee now has the nation’s richest source of data about public education, whether it’s on individual schools, school systems or the state as a whole. Most of it is public record, although assessments of individual teachers are not. There will even be a way for teachers to report their own working conditions. Do they have enough materials? Are their principals supportive? Is creativity rewarded or discouraged? Is the classroom setting in good shape? Those are questions teachers will be able to report anonymously once the state sets up the website. Teacher and principal evaluations may be the biggest sign of progress. In Tennessee there was no requirement that teachers be assessed on a regular basis, and how much that assessment played into the teachers being retained. The new law passed by the Legislature sets a goal of getting students ready for college or career choices. The law requires annual teacher assessments and observation of each teacher several times a year, for at least 10 or 15 minutes each time. Half of the evaluation of a teacher and principal will be based on student achievement. Other criteria include prior evaluations, conferences an observations by superiors. Only teachers of core curriculum subjects will be evaluated like this (not art teachers, PE teachers, music teachers, etc.). Maybe the most controversial part of all this is the weight given to so-called Value Added Assessments. That’s a way of measuring student growth through tests. It’s subjective in a way, and teachers are rightfully nervous about it. Even if a consistently low score on this measurement doesn’t get a teacher fired or denied tenure, it could mean the teacher won’t get a salary boost for doing good work. The teacher union was not keen on this part of Race to the Top, and implementing it has yet to be worked out. In the weeks and months ahead we’ll be doing stories about Race to the Top, on what our local school system is doing to improve standards and evaluate teachers and principals, and what grants our system is seeking. In the meantime, rejoice that our state system of public education is about to get better, if everyone does his part. — Stan Voit is editor of The Mountain Press. His column appears each Sunday.

Smoothing Rocky Top Choosing the next Knoxville campus president critical for UT And then there were five. More than 70 people applied to become the next University of Tennessee-Knoxville president by the Wednesday deadline. A search panel quickly narrowed the field to five with UT Institute of Agriculture chancellor Joe DiPietro and West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission chancellor Brian Noland scoring highest headed into interviews. Now, perhaps more than ever, it is imperative that the Search Committee and, ultimately, the UT Board of Trustees, choose the right man — and in the right manner. The firestorm of controversy following the resignation of Dr. John Shumaker in 2003 and the rocky tenure of Dr. John Petersen remains fresh in the minds of trustees, faculty, alumni and students. Shumaker’s tenure lasted for only about a year when allegations were reported in June 2002 that he had misused university resources. It was also reported that he awarded a $300,000 consulting contract to a long-time
friend without going through the bidding process, and that he had failed to tell the university that he was serving as a trustee for a college in Greece. By August, Shumaker was history. Outraged supporters demanded that process that eventually led to the hiring of Petersen in 2004 be out in the public and totally above board. Petersen, who served until 2009 couldn’t survive a 2008 survey of the faculty showing that 71 percent had “no confidence” or “limited confidence” in his ability to leading the university. Dr. Jan Simek has acted as interim president since Petersen departed. After two consecutive shaky administrations, and with higher education facing a plethora of serious issues, it is critical that the eventual choice be beyond reproach. (Some university supporters, we say only partially tongue in cheek, may feel this is even more important than having the right football coach or whether basketball coach Bruce Pearl can withstand the ongoing
NCAA investigation.) There was great diversity among the list of candidates. University spokesman Hank Dye said the list “includes a wide variety of applicants, some a lot less qualified than others. ... We had said from the beginning we wanted a diverse pool, and it appears we have a lot of diversity in it. We want to have the very best person for the job, and I think you have to be very open in order to be sure you get that.” During two days next week, the search committee will conduct open forums for up to five finalists. Faculty, staff and students were encouraged to submit questions via the Internet to be used during those forums. The committee will then endorse some or all and send the finalists to the Board of Trustees, which is scheduled to vote on Oct. 22. It is a critical time on Rocky Top. The events that unfold over the next few weeks and the man chosen to lead the Knoxville campus can go a long way in smoothing that out.
Public forum Dream fulfilled thanks to the efforts of local businesses
Editor: Having worked for 10 years in the tourism industry, I sometimes lose the perspective of the impact we make in the lives of our guests. It’s no surprise many of our guests have worked and scrimped an average of two years for the opportunity to enjoy a family vacation. At times the greed some business owners show is deplorable. A daily and exhaustive effort is made to utilize whatever underhanded tactics necessary to grab every last penny before a competitor can. On the other hand, there are local business owners and staff who work tirelessly to make it. Through their ups and downs they find ways to encourage and reward those who aided in their success. In return, employees respond to visitor needs in a more positive manner, and this encourages guests to want to come back. My father and mother divorced early in my years. My mother did what it took to ensure
her six children loved her, to the expense of any of us having a relationship with our father. Turning 21 and having joined the Navy, one of my first ports was close to my father. Finally, the opportunity to build the relationship I always wanted with him. Awkward at first, we soon found I not only looked much like my father, but our personalities were a copy. We shared likes for fixing and building things, cars, and the same political views. The last 10 years we spent over the phone, e-mail, faxing and occasional trips to trace genealogy. Having traced our family to 1040 AD, we felt it was time to take our first vacation together. Growing up without my father, I wanted to go fishing with him. My father, a retired Air Force jet mechanic and Vietnam vet, wanted to fly in a helicopter for the first time. Most of all, we wanted all six children to see their father for the first time in several years. Two months ago my father decided to vacation in Sevierville. Money was tight and activities would be limited. It was through the giving hearts of Dan
Haynes, Scenic Helicopter Tours; and David Berry, Smoky Mountain Angling Adventures, that my father and I were able to reach the dreams we had long shared. Dan’s staff went the extra mile to ensure we experienced their best flight. My father loved the views, the thrill of moving over endless sites, and the way in which Scenic Helicopter staff carried themselves. Gratitude also goes out to Captain Berry, who turned down paying customers to take my father and family fishing on Douglas Lake. He extended himself far above expectations to ensure we all had a memorable adventure. My father was disgnosed with stage 4 cancer not long after that. It was with a heavy heart and many unfinished tomorrows that I laid my father to rest. Through the unselfish acts of Scenic Helicopter Tours and Smokies Angling Adventures, my burden was made somewhat easier by the memories. We fulfilled my dream to fish with my dad and his desire to fly. Charles Rhodes Seymour

While officially game losing streak, routing a sellout of more than bumbling Tennessee 41-14 92,000, there were noticeSaturday in a rude home- able chunks of empty seats coming for Volunteers for a game matching two teams seeking their first coach Derek Dooley. “We ran into a moti- win in the SEC. The breakthrough went vated team today,” Dooley said. “When you fumble to the Bulldogs, who four times in the first half, set the tone by holding it makes it hard to hang Tennessee without a score in there with the other on the opening possesteam. We got affected on sion — they gave up scores the road and couldn’t keep right away each game of our composure. We are the losing streak — and not going to win with those marching right down the field the first time they got types of turnovers.” A.J. Green caught the ball.

On the ensuing kickoff, Eric Gordon had the ball knocked loose and Derek Owens recovered at the Tennessee 41. Murray struck right away, hooking up with Green on a 33-yard pass. “Our growing pains reared its ugly head today,” Dooley said. “They started drives on our side of the field, and we didn’t handle that well. We need to step up there and make a stop. We are just not stopping anybody right now. I’m not sure if that’s just growing pains. I just think we are not very good right now.” After King was thrown for a loss, Murray hooked up with Rantavious Wooten on a 9-yard touchdown in the left corner to give the Bulldogs a 17-point cushion. Dooley, the son of former Georgia coach and athletic director Vince Dooley, downplayed his return to the city where he grew up and graduated from law school. His father did not attend the game, electing to watch from home because he didn’t want to root for a visiting team between the hedges. See TENNESSEE, Page A11
COMMENTARY AND OPINION
Things may look down for Eagles, but potential is there The Seymour Eagles football team is mired in the longest scoring drought the Blue and Gold has endured since the team started play in 1961. It’s been 14 quarters — three and a half games — since the Eagles last scored a point. It’s also the first time in school history that three consecutive shutouts have been recorded against the team. But all is not lost. Watching Friday night’s gut-wrenching 7-0 loss to Morristown East from the sidelines, I could see this squad has definite potential. While the team is dotted with some very talented seniors, there is also a good quantity of gifted younger athletes that are still learning the ropes under coach Jim Moore and staff. Names like Colton Flynn, D.J. Griffin, Corey Todd, Corey Heard, Taylor Overton, Eric White, Brandon White, Trevor Wallace and Bryson Dockery are probably already familiar to Seymour fans, and they’ll only continue to grow more familiar as time passes and they continue to improve. Still, the senior Eagles have a lot to play for this season, and I believe they could actually win out, given the right circumstances. Those circumstances include two things to start. 1) The Eagles defense needs to continue what they showed Friday night. That is excellent effort on most every play. They were on a mission against East, and were it not for one Hurricanes’ drive, they would have shutout a team that’s averaged nearly 30 points a game this season. 2) The offense has to find a way to get the ball in the end zone. I think the offensive woes will begin to work itself out this week as the Eagles host a 1-6 South-Doyle See EAGLES, Page A9

South Carolina’s quarterback Stephen Garcia celebrates as he leaves the field defeating No. 1 Alabama 35-21 in an NCAA college football game Saturday, Oct. 9, at Williams Brice Stadium in Columbia, S.C.
Gamecocks snap Tide win streak By PETE IACOBELLI AP Sports Writer COLUMBIA, S.C. — Steve Spurrier finally delivered South Carolina’s biggest win ever. Stephen Garcia threw three touchdown passes, two to Alshon Jeffrey, and Marcus Lattimore scored three times as the 19th-ranked Gamecocks stunned No. 1 Alabama 35-21 on Saturday.
The defending national champion Crimson Tide had won 19 straight game, including last week’s 31-6 rout against Florida, since losing the Sugar Bowl after the 2008 season to Utah. The Gamecocks (4-1, 2-1 Southeastern Conference) had never beaten a No. 1 team in four previous tries. But the Head Ball Coach, in his sixth season at South Carolina, had the players
to beat Alabama using the Tide’s own formula. Garcia and Gamecocks cashed in chances when they got close to the goal line and shut down the best tailback duo in the country, making themselves a factor in the SEC title chase. South Carolina shredded the country’s top-rated scoring defense, putting up the most points on Alabama (5-1, 2-1) since a
41-34 loss to LSU in 2007. The Gamecocks scored four touchdowns when they got inside the ’Bama 20 — double what the Crimson Tide had allowed coming in. Alabama’s Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson were held to 64 yards on the ground as the Crimson Tide tried to rally back, as it had in beating Arkansas See TIDE FALL, Page A12

NASCARâ€™s Gilliland right at home in California By JOHN MARSHALL AP Sports Writer FONTANA, Calif. (AP) â€” David Gillilandâ€™s long, strange run through the NASCAR season has brought him home. It couldnâ€™t have come at a better time. Fighting through a season in which heâ€™s traded the qualifying hot seat with Travis Kvapil for Front Row Motorsports, Gilliland was able to let out a big sigh after returning to Auto Club Speedway. â€œIâ€™ve already seen a lot of people I know, my friends and family, so that part of itâ€™s always good,â€? said Gilliland, from nearby Chino Hills. â€œThis trackâ€™s special to me. I did most of my racing out of my house, which is about 10 minutes from here, so itâ€™s good to come back and see everybody.â€? Gilliland came out early to visit everyone so he could concentrate on racing in one the final races of whatâ€™s been an awkward-at-times season. Front Rowsâ€™ top two cars are comfortably within the top 35 needed to run in a Sprint Cup race, but the team is trying to add a guaranteed spot for a third car. Gilliland and Kvapil have taken turns trying to qualify the No. 38 car, often not knowing whoâ€™ll get the call until just before the entries are due. â€œItâ€™s been a little bit different; itâ€™s been an experience,â€? Gilliland said. â€œBut all the drivers of Front Row Motorsports, we all realize itâ€™s what we have to do for our team right now to make it better for next year. Itâ€™s not the funnest thing to do at times, but we feel itâ€™s the best thing to do for Front Row Motorsports.â€? Gilliland has gotten the call to qualify the No. 38 car 14 times and has cracked the field all but once. Kvapil is 8 for 9 in qualifying. It hasnâ€™t always been easy for the two drivers on a team thatâ€™s not nearly as big as some of the NASCAR giants.
Gilliland and Kvapil donâ€™t always have top-of-the-line equipment, the team typically doesnâ€™t buy the full tire allotment and there isnâ€™t a team of people analyzing data, leaving the two drivers to rely on information from each other. What has helped are their racing styles. Gilliland and Kvapil like similar setups in their cars, so there arenâ€™t a lot of adjustments when the seat-swapping occurs. â€œTravis and I were teammates before and we have enough confidence where if weâ€™re struggling, we can put his whole setup in, start the race and go into the first corner like we had practiced all weekend,â€? Gilliland said. Gilliland pulled it off at his home track, qualifying 38th for Sundayâ€™s 400mile race. Seeing his family and friends made it all that more enjoyable. â€”â€”â€” FONTANA DOWN TO ONE: Auto Club Speedway was once a big draw, routinely pulling in 100,000 fans after opening in 1997. Sagging attendance over the past few years â€” the speedway was about halffull for the last fall race â€” and a shift in focus by NASCAR have left the track with just one race in 2011. Not everyone was disappointed. â€œUnfortunately, the crowds just havenâ€™t been what everyone hoped they would be,â€? Chase driver Jeff Burton said. â€œWith that being said, if there is an opportunity to have a onerace event would be better for a facility, this is an opportunity.â€? Fontana lost its fall date for a second race in Kansas, leaving the track with just a spring race, on March 27. Cup drivers hope the change will spark more interest among Southern California fans and boost attendance at the one race
thatâ€™s left. â€œAs a California native, Iâ€™m disappointed to hear itâ€™s losing an event because itâ€™s taken so long for NASCAR to get here,â€? said Chase points leader Jimmie Johnson, whoâ€™s from El Cajon, Calif. â€œI hate for us to lose a weekend here, but on a national scale and whatâ€™s right for the sport, I can see that as well. If weâ€™re not packing the stands, then take the second date somewhere else.â€? â€”â€”â€” NASCAR ON SOUTH PARK: â€œSouth Parkâ€? took on NASCAR with its season-opening episode entitled â€œPoor and Stupid.â€? Not everyone around the garages had seen the show yet, but most of the drivers had no problem with the idea of being the brunt of a not-so-flattering parody. â€œI think any time somebody takes the time to make fun of you is a compliment. I donâ€™t think anybody takes offense to that,â€? said Danica Patrick, who will also appear on â€œThe Simpsonsâ€? later this year. â€œI think we all made history being on â€™South Park.â€™ Itâ€™s pretty cool.â€? Not even Johnson took offense when Cartman, a character on the show, had this to say about him: â€œIâ€™m a little worried about that Johnson guy â€” he seems dumber than spit.â€? â€œIâ€™ve had multiple text messages saying that I was on â€™South Park,â€™ really, from all of my friendsâ€™ kids,â€? he said. â€œIâ€™ve got to check it out. I havenâ€™t seen it, but I heard that Cartmanâ€™s in a very entertaining sponsored car. I havenâ€™t seen it yet and I canâ€™t wait to.â€? Patrick was run over by another car and killed at the end of the show, but didnâ€™t seem to mind. â€œI got killed, I was told,â€? she said. â€œWell, you know, some days I feel like that might be the easy road.â€?
Patrick Hanlon PREP CROSS COUNTRY
Bears shine at Metro meet KNOXVILLE â€” The Sevier County High School cross country team seems to be hitting their stride as mid-season arrives. â€œOur veteran runners are coming into good form and our younger athletes are competing great as well,â€? said head coach Dan Hanlon. This was evident Thursday as the both the bears boys and girls teams finished in top positions at the Victor Ashe meet, part of the Knox Metro High School cross country series. The Sevier County girls team finished second among 17 teams while the boys placed fourth among 22 other regional teams. Leading the pack for the bears were sophomores and team co-captains Hannah Pelham and Patrick Hanlon. Pelham finished 4th overall from a field of 170 on the girls team (22:38) while Hanlon was 5th overall from a field of 242 on the boys team (18:30). â€œThis race featured over 400 high school runners so these finishes are quite good,â€? said Hanlon. Also competing and scoring points for the speedy bears were Makayla May, Lisa Burke, Courtney Kirby and Skyler Trent. On the boyâ€™s team Brandon Laws, Adam Davis, Corey Ramsey and William

Georgia head coach Mark Richt gestures after Georgia defeated Tennessee 41-14 in an NCAA college football game at Sanford Stadium, Saturday, Oct. 9, in Athens, Ga. Jeff Chiu/AP
Atlanta Braves Rick Ankiel hits a solo home run in the eleventh inning of Game 2 of the National League Division Series baseball game against the San Francisco Giants in San Francisco, Friday, Oct. 8. The Braves beat the Giants 5-4 in eleven innings. MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL
Braves seem determined to delay Coxâ€™s retirement By PAUL NEWBERRY AP Sports Writer ATLANTA (AP) â€” No matter how many injuries they face, no matter how hopeless the situation seems, the Atlanta Braves are determined to put off Bobby Coxâ€™s retirement as long as possible. Another player went down in Game 2 of the NL division series â€” and a mighty important one at that. But the Braves shrugged off the loss of closer Billy Wagner and got down to figuring how they can win an NL division series with the San Francisco Giants that is improbably tied at one game apiece. Game 3 is Sunday afternoon before what should be a raucous sellout crowd at Turner Field, where the Braves put up the best home record in the majors during the regular season. â€œWeâ€™ve been a team all year that just rolls with the punches,â€? said ace Tim Hudson, who will start Sunday. â€œWe still have to go out there and play. Injuries are part of the game and adversity is part of the game. Weâ€™re not the most talented club, but I feel like we have the most heart and a lot of guts.â€? With his team getting home around 9 a.m. Atlanta time, Cox decided to skip the traditional offday workout and let his players get some extra rest. Thatâ€™s probably for the best. The way things have gone for the Braves, someone might have gotten hurt. Two key hitters, Chipper Jones and Martin Prado, are both out with season-
ending injuries. So is starting pitcher Kris Medlen. Three other pitchers â€” Jair Jurrjens, Takashi Saito and Eric Oâ€™Flaherty â€” were left off the division series roster because of various ailments. Now, the guy who saved 37 games during the regular season is likely to miss at least the rest of the division series. Wagner injured his left oblique on a fielding play in the 10th inning of Friday nightâ€™s dramatic 5-4 victory that evened the series. The Braves must decide if Wagner has a chance to come back in a week to pitch in the NL championship series â€” should Atlanta even get that far. If so, theyâ€™ll likely keep him on the roster and use only 10 pitchers the rest of this series. If not, heâ€™ll be replaced by another pitcher, which would make the left-hander ineligible for the next round anyway. Wagner will be re-examined before Game 3. â€œWeâ€™ve got a tough decision to make,â€? Cox said. â€œWeâ€™ve got a lot of talking to do.â€? Saito, who was left off the roster because of an ailing right shoulder, threw a scoreless inning in the instructional league and would appear to be the top candidate to replace Wagner. Jurrjens and veteran Scott Proctor, who spent most of the year at Triple-A, are also possibilities. Cox said he can get by with 10 pitchers if necessary, especially with the emergence of rookie relievers Craig Kimbrel and Jonny Venters. Cox also has Peter Moylan and
Kyle Farnsworth. â€œWeâ€™ll mix and match the seventh, eighth and nine innings,â€? Cox said. â€œWhoever matches up those particular innings, thatâ€™s whoâ€™s going to be out there. Weâ€™ll close with whomever. Iâ€™ve always thought Moylan could close, and Farnsworth has closed in the major leagues. Venters, no reason why he canâ€™t, as well as Kimbrel.â€? The bullpen is a major reason this series is all even. Atlanta fell behind 4-0 in the first two innings against the Giants, and starter Tommy Hanson was lifted for a pinch-hitter in the top of the fifth. But six relievers â€” including another rookie, Michael Dunn â€” combined for seven scoreless innings while the Braves rallied to tie the game. In the 11th, Rick Ankiel won it with a homer into the bay beyond the rightfield wall at AT&T Park. â€œTheyâ€™ve been pretty much our rock all year,â€? Hudson said of the bullpen. â€œWe wouldnâ€™t have won last night without those guys.â€? Now, Coxâ€™s long managerial career is assured of lasting at least two more games. Heâ€™s sure enjoying the ride. â€œThatâ€™s why weâ€™re so proud of this team,â€? Cox said Saturday. â€œThey do bounce back.â€?

TENNESSEE 3From Page A8
Not to worry. Derekâ€™s team didnâ€™t give dad much to cheer about. The Volunteers looked totally deflated after their last-play loss to LSU the previous week, when they surrendered the winning touchdown after time ran out because a penalty for too many men on the field allowed the Tigers to run an extra play. Tennesseeâ€™s only bright spot in the first half came after Simms appeared to headed for yet another sack, but managed to slip away from two defenders and loft a 38-yard touchdown pass to Justin Hunter. But any hope of the Vols rallying was snuffed out by Gordonâ€™s second turnover and the third overall. On a Georgia punt, the ball popped out of Gordonâ€™s hands and right into the arms of Blake Sailors at the Tennessee 37. Murray went to Aron White with a 30-yard pass and, even after an illegal block penalty backed up the Bulldogs, Green hauled in a 22-yard touchdown pass down the middle
â€œI was disappointed in how we competed. Itâ€™s easy to take a loss if you are competing. We obviously werenâ€™t ready emotionally from start to finish.â€? Tennessee coach Derek Dooley
that made it 24-7. Walsh added a 20-yard field goal for a 27-7 halftime lead. Just about everything went Georgiaâ€™s way. On the opening possession of the second half, Murray spun away from a would-be tackler in the backfield, took off running again to his left and managed to stick the ball
over the goal line just before stepping out of bounds. The officials initially ruled him out at the 1, and Walsh kicked through a chip-shot field goal. But the replay booth signaled down to the field just before the snap, took another look at the play and ruled that Murray should get credit for a 5-yard touchdown run. â€œThey were hungry and ready to play,â€? Dooley said of the Bulldogs. â€œThatâ€™s what we expected Georgia to be like at the beginning of the season. I was disappointed in how we competed. â€œItâ€™s easy to take a loss if you are competing. We obviously werenâ€™t ready emotionally from start to finish. â€œ

The Crimson Tide made a charge, getting an odd safety by Garcia, a field goal and a 51-yard touchdown catch by Darius Hanks that turned a South Carolinaâ€™s 21-9 lead into a 28-21 ballgame. Alabamaâ€™s last chance to tighten things came at the start of the fourth quarter when Jeffery, the SECâ€™s leading receiver, bobbled a catch into the hands of defensive back Will Lowery for an interception. But Greg McElroy was sacked for a 7-yard loss by Stephon Gilmore and Alabama coach Nick Saban called a fake field goal that didnâ€™t come close to working as offensive lineman Ed Stinson dropped the throw from holder A.J. McCarron.
South Carolina answered back with a 75-yard drive, ended by Lattimoreâ€™s 2-yard score with 7:01 left that put the game away. Alabama could not respond and South Carolina fans, as they had after the basketball team beat Kentucky in January and the baseball team beat Arizona State at the College World Series in June, celebrated beating the countryâ€™s No. 1 team. Lattimore finished with 93 yards. He also caught
Garciaâ€™s first scoring pass, a 9-yard touchdown in the opening quarter to take the lead for good. Garcia was a tidy 17 of 20 for 201 yards and the one interception. He also picked up a critical fourth-and-1 on the Gamecocks final scoring drive. Jeffery had seven receptions for 127 yards, including TD catches of 26 and 15 yards. McElroy threw for a career-high 315 yards, but was sacked seven times.

A way out, at last, for Chile’s trapped miners SAN JOSE MINE, Chile (AP) — A drilling rig punched through to the underground purgatory where 33 miners have been trapped for 66 agonizing days under the Chilean desert, raising cheers, tears and hopes on Saturday. Champagne sprayed and hard hats tumbled off heads as rescue workers pressed close to the drill, hugging each other and shouting for joy. Down in “Camp Hope,” where the miners’ relatives waited, people waved flags and cried as one man energetically rang a brass bell even before the siren sounded confirming the escape shaft had reached the miners. The men are still several days away from efforts to bring them to the surface: the rescue team wants to eliminate even a remote chance of something going wrong on their way up, and plans to carefully inspect the shaft with a video camera before deciding whether to reinforce it. “We feel an enormous happiness, now that i’m going to have my brother,” said Darwin Contreras, whose brother Pedro, a 26-year-old heavy machine operator, is stuck down below. “When the siren rang out, it was overwhelming. Now we just have to wait for them to get out, just a little bit longer now.” The “Plan B” drill won a three-way race against two other drills to carve a hole wide enough for an escape capsule to pull the miners out one by one. While “Plan A” and “Plan C” stalled after repeatedly

A man weeps after it was announced that a drill reached the trapped miners at the San Jose Mine near Copiapo, Chile, Saturday. veering off course, the “Plan B” drill reached the miners at a point 2,041 feet (622 meters) below the surface at 8:05 a.m., after 33 days of drilling. Jeff Hart of Denver, Colorado, operated the drill, and said the entire rescue crew erupted with cheers when the T130 broke through. “There is nothing more important than saving, possibly saving 33 lives. There’s no more important job than that,” Hart said. “We’ve done our part, now it’s up to them to get the rest of the way out.” The milestone thrilled Chileans, who have come
to see the rescue drama as a test of the nation’s character and pride, and eased some anxiety among the miners’ families. But now comes a difficult judgment call: The rescue team must decide whether it’s more risky to pull the miners through unreinforced rock, or to insert tons of heavy steel pipe into the curved shaft to protect the miners on their way up. “This is an important achievement,” Mining Minister Laurence Golborne said, “but we still haven’t rescued anybody. This rescue won’t be over until the last person below leaves this mine.”

You get what you pay for The story of a Tennessee Fire Department that watched as a house outside its jurisdiction burned to the ground has stirred a national debate. Obion County doesn’t have its own professional fire department; apparently there isn’t a volunteer department or there wasn’t one near enough to save the home of Gene Cranick when it burned Sept. 29. The closest professional fire department was in the city of South Fulton. The city had no legal obligation to provide fire protection outside its city limits. Many cities, in fact, will not do so. Their leaders cite the cost, the liability, the chance that taxpayers who are paying for the service could suffer a fire while city personnel are outside their jurisdiction and other issues. The South Fulton Fire Department had warned people living outside the city that it could no longer afford to provide fire protection for free. To continue providing the service, the department asked rural residents to pay a $75 annual fee. Cranick doesn’t deny that he failed to pay the fee. He told reporters he had paid it in past years, but forgot to do so this year. As his house was burning, firefighters watched but did nothing — besides spray down the property of a neighbor who had paid the fee. Because of this, the fire department has been presented as callous, petty, money grubbing and irresponsible. None of that is true. It’s sad that Cranick failed to pay his bill and lost his home. But it’s not the fault of the firefighters, or the city of South Fulton. Yes, a fire truck was present. No, that doesn’t meant the firefighters should have helped. Cranick apparently offered to pay the fee on the spot. As the South Fulton mayor pointed out, if the fire department accepted that transaction, then no one living in he county would ever have a reason to pay for the service in advance. They’d do so when there was a fire. It’s a tough lesson: You cannot assume you have fire protection. In Sevier County, we have a number of communities that are served by volunteer fire departments. To spell it out, that means there are brave men and women who risk their lives to extinguish fires without compensation and usually without the latest or best equipment. The county pays a small amount to each, but that doesn’t cover the cost of operations and equipment — even without counting for wages. The firefighters might be willing to serve at any time, but they also have jobs — and not all employers are willing to release employees to answer an emergency all. Given the unemployment rate, that’s not a risk many would take even if they were inclined. That all came back to me as I watched the debate unfold about the actions of the South Fulton Fire Department. Fire protection isn’t a right. It isn’t free. And you shouldn’t just assume that if you have a fire, a professionally trained, fully equipped department will be on its way as soon as 911 gets a call about it. If you live in a city, that’s going to be true. If you live in the county, it might not be. Volunteers have to be able to get off from work. If they can get away from what they’re doing, they have to get to the department, grab their gear, and get the trucks — then start to your home. Most areas here have mutual aid agreements, meaning other fire departments — including municipal departments — can be called if the primary agency can’t be reached or needs backup. People here also need to look at their neighborhoods. There are many subdivisions in Sevier county where developers paid scant attention to the needs of firefighters. The roads aren’t wide enough for fire trucks to easily be able to navigate. Some are too steep for a truck to climb. Some mountaintop developments don’t have water tanks to give adequate water pressure in the event of a fire. Some don’t have fire hydrants, or the ones that are there are of no use to firefighters. And if people aren’t satisfied with what they learn, they need to decide their answer to the next question: How will they pay for better? Volunteer fire departments in Sevier County can use all the money they can get. They won’t turn away donations. It’s possible to hire a private agency like Rural Metro, but that also comes with cost. When people start hearing about the possibility of a fee from an agency like that, or added taxes to pay for a professional department, some might think it’s too much added cost. But as Gene Cranick learned, it doesn’t seem like all that much when your home is being reduced to ashes. — Jeff Farrell is a reporter for The Mountain Press.

Jimmy Hardin remembered By Robert S. Allen On Tuesday, Sevier County will observe the 55th anniversary of the death of Jimmy Hardin, a blocking back on the Sevier County High School football team. That day five and onehalf decades ago — and the days immediately preceding and following it — represent some of the saddest days not only in Sevier County’s sports history, but in Sevier County’s history. On Saturday evening, Oct. 8, 1955 the Sevier County High School Smoky Bears renewed a long-standing football rivalry with the Cocke County Fighting Cocks. The popular tilt that year was set on the Smoky Bears’ turf in Sevierville. The game had been reset for Saturday evening rather than the usual Friday night due to torrential rains the day before. This was the only time a game had been postponed due to weather. The Smoky Bears’ stadium was, at that time, situated behind the county fair livestock barn which was behind the high school. A gravel driveway and chain link fence separated the barn from the west end zone. To the rear of the home bleachers on the north side was A.J. King Lumber Co., a part of which is now home to Sevier County’s new state-of-the-art public library. The visitors’ bleachers on the south side separated the football field from the county’s fairgrounds, which also served as the high school’s baseball and football practice fields. This night was clear and crisp — an ideal night for football. This game, like all the others, was well attended by parents of the students on the field, alumni, and local townspeople. There were also a good number of elementary age kids in attendance, anxiously awaiting their future opportunity to wear the purple and white as players, cheerleaders or band members. In addition, there was always a group of regulars who lined a long stretch of the four-foot-high chain link fence on the Smoky Bears’ side and the west end zone. This group of men was made up of local merchants, politicians, police officers, a few players’ dads and other avid supporters. This was the same group who always stood at the double-door entrance of the old wooden high school gym during basketball games. The role of regulars was perfectly re-created in the movie “Hoosiers,” over 30 years later. The games, regardless of the opponent, were always exciting and fun to watch. This was because everyone in the stands and lining the
fence behind the bench. When she saw her son, Mrs. Hardin let out a scream that must still resonate in the minds of all still living who were there that night. Jimmy Hardin fought and hung on until the following Wednesday. He was a high school senior two and one-half months short of his 17th birthday when he died. Two days later, it seemed everybody in Sevier County came to the funeral at First Baptist Church in Sevierville where Jimmy was a member. Hundreds of people — his teammates, the students, their parents, the townspeople, the regulars, everybody — attended the service. The church’s sanctuary was packed and overflowing outside onto the steps and onto Park Road. Speakers had been set up outside so everyone could hear. There was not a dry eye in sight. Jimmy Hardin’s death had broken Sevier County’s heart.

People of faith can choose between different communities By ARNE WALKER Life is a gigantic buffet table of choices. They run the whole gamut of life. Each day we choose what we will eat and what we will wear. We make entertainment choices and choices that have moral consequences. We make choices that have an impact on today and others that have farreaching consequences. Depending on where we lives and our own economic condition, the scopes of our choices are more or less expansive. For now focus with me on forks in the road choices. These are the ones that make a significant difference in how we live out our lives. Some would say happiness is all about me. Others would claim happiness to be in a life shared. As the old saying goes â€” â€œyou pay your money and take your choice.â€? My life is committed to calling people to be well-rounded squares. We are to develop our full potential: body, mind, emotions, and soul. The abundant life is chosen when the importance of each is lived out. Many in our society miss the religious opportunity that Sabbath gives us to step off of the treadmill of economic striving or scheduling pressures or commitments that are shortlived in value. We have 52 Sabbath opportunities to focus renewing our total selves. In Sabbath we redefine ourselves as eternally designed being created to live in a vital relationship with God and others. We get outside of ourselves to proclaim the Worthship of the Wholly Other-who is the God who has met us in Jesus Christ. Call it soul care, an important aspect in being a whole person. On Sept. 18, 2010, I led a group often to the top of Mt. Cammerer. Our Jewish friends recognize that we hiked on Yom Kippur. They totally abstain from all food and water for that twenty-four hour period.
The day proves that we are human, for only human beings can say â€œnoâ€? to instinct. Married couples as well refrain from making love. All other creatures are programmed by instinct. We have a choice. This day also develops, in who choose who to observe it, an empathy with people who go hungry out of no choice of their own. Some in the Christian tradition hold onto the value of fasting as well. Yom Kippur is also called the day of atonement. You do not have to fool me that you are someone other than who you really are. You impress me by admitting your mistakes and seeking to learn from them. I can only truly be a friend with real human beings. The major loss of con artists is that you cut yourself off from true friendships. Those who hide behind some pretense make connections with others difficult to impossible. We hold that choice in our own hands. Let us move on to another choice that impacts upon us. People of faith choose between two essentially different communities. One chooses to be part of a covenant community blessed by love and forgiveness to love and forgive. They see themselves as the family of God with a wide latitude of beliefs. These beliefs do not divide but rather enrich. This covenant community is committed to Christ and to each other as they seek to carry out Christâ€™s mission as His hands and feet in the world. Support and accountability undergirded by unconditional love are hallmarks of their life together. Our personal family holds a wide variety of political and religious views. We are a family committed to Christ and to each other as we live lives of unconditional love towards one another. We seek to raise our children in an atmosphere that love is something that you give and herein discover the
true joy of living â€” vital relationships. We are not business partners that seek to give so that we can get. Our cultures sometimes blind us to this choice. There are other people of faith who belong to an organization. If viewpoints differ, they may leave the organization and head for people who see things the way that they do. We are free to choose how we understand being a person of faith. It is fun to watch people make sacrifices for what they really want and to make excuses for what they do not want. It is hard for some to be a truth teller. My choice is to see truth as arrived at by reason, intuition, and revelation. Reasonable people are fun to dialogue with. If I meet a person and my back hurts that has proved to be my intuition giving me a head-up. Revelation comes as I prepare to preach, for God indeed, speaks if I will listen. More than once I have had someone tell me a departed loved one appeared briefly to them in a time of grief and assured them that they were happy and healthy. Revelation strikes again. God is on the side of love and life. The power of the evil one is directed at convincing us that we are the center of the universe. That power wants to ingrain in us that life is all about us. Again, please hear with me those words that echo in our ears: â€œYou pay your money and take your choice.â€? As for me I choose Sabbath, fasting, being at peace with who I really am, being a person of faith living within a family, and accepting truth conveyed through reason, intuition, and revelation. All of this contributes to my being a well-rounded square. How about your choices? â€” The Rev. Arne Walker is a semi-retired pastor of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America who resides in Gatlinburg.
Living by our Faith Behold, his soul is puffed up, it is not upright in him; but the righteous shall live by his faith (Habakkuk 2:4) Habakkuk has been complaining to God about the sinfulness of Judah - God tells him about the terrible enemy that He is raising up against them, the Babylonians, and the fate that awaits Judah. It is not a pretty picture; one wonders how anyone could survive or be saved in such circumstances! God then makes a contrast between two sorts of people. There are those whose souls are puffed up inside of them. They have all sorts of confidence about their standing before God and their own â€˜â€™righteousness,â€™â€™ but their confidence is entirely unfounded. Their souls are not upright within them. And then there are those who will live-- those who are truly righteous. They are righteous because they live by their faith. When Paul makes his grand theological treatise in his letter to the Romans, Habakkuk 2:4b is the centerpiece of his argument regarding justification by faith. The righteous shall live by faith. In the Roman letter Paul effectively demonstrates how no man or woman could ever be justified in the sight of God by their merits or their works since all have sinned (Romans 1:18-3:20). He demonstrates how Abraham received the promise through faith, and therefore those who inherit the promises are those who are children of Abraham by faith, sharing in the same trust in the One True God (Romans 4:1-25, 9:6-13). Paul quotes Habakkuk 2:4b again in the Galatian letter to demonstrate that no one has ever been justified before God on the basis of the Law of Moses (Galatians 3:11). Moses, David, and the prophets themselves lived by faith. Throughout time, therefore, those who belong to God and please Him are those who live by faith. It was not a matter of ethnic identity, as the Jews vainly believed; it was that trust in God, that confidence in His existence and His rewarding of those who seek after Him (Hebrews 11:6). The righteous, indeed, will live by faith. Nevertheless, there is a minor detail present in the original Hebrew of Habakkukâ€™s words that was not carried over by Paul that remains important. Yes, the righteous live by faith. But â€˜â€™faithâ€™â€™ is not just anyoneâ€™s faith. The righteous one lives by his faith. We all know of people who are able to make it through life on account of the efforts of others. We often call this â€˜â€™riding on coattails.â€™â€™ Many children in this world will never have to worry about money or work; their parents are so unbelievably wealthy that they will never have to work. Many people rise to prominence less because of their own talents and abilities and more because of the fame of their parents or other such relatives. There are some people who try to do this in their faith lives. They may have a parent or grandparent who was mighty in faith in Godâ€™s Kingdom, and they try to â€˜â€™ride their coattails.â€™â€™ They may start in life accepting what they have been taught. Sure, they believe in God; they have their own faith; just ask them. In reality, too many try to get by with their fatherâ€™s faith or their grandfatherâ€™s faith. They have not yet made the faith their own. Jacob is a great example of this. Few had his pedigree-- the son of Isaac, the grandson of Abraham. He certainly did not deserve to be the son of promise, but that was Godâ€™s choice for him (Genesis 25:23). When Jacob was fleeing to Paddan-Aram, God appeared to him in a dream and promised that He would be with him and that he would inherit the promises (Genesis 28:12-15). Jacob was astonished; he understood that God was present (Genesis 28:16-17). He certainly believed in the God of Abraham and the God of Isaac. But notice his vow-- if God will fulfill His promises, then He will be my God (Genesis 28:20-22). Jacob had faith in the God of his father-- but he did not yet have his own faith. In reality, while some people might get the luxury of â€˜â€™riding the coattailsâ€™â€™ of their parents, grandparents, or whomever else in their physical lives, no one can truly ride the coattails of anyone else spiritually. It will not work. The faith of your father, mother, child, spouse, preacher, elder, or anyone else cannot sustain you. It cannot stand up for you. Sure, it may remain for awhile, when it remains unchallenged and undisturbed. But then the day of adversity comes. Maybe the adversity comes from a television show, a friend, or an educator who challenges the validity of faith in the God of the Bible and in Christianity. Maybe the adversity comes in the challenges of life-- a harrowing illness, failure in various endeavors, unemployment, betrayal by others. No matter who we are, no matter how much money we have or do not have, regardless of our status in life, days of adversity will come that will cause us to question who we are and how we are to be sustained. And it is in those days that faith grows or dies (James 1:2-4, 1 Peter 1:6-7). So it was with Jacob. He made it to Paddan-Aram and began working for his deceitful uncle Laban. He faced terrible adversity and there was no human that was there to advocate for him. He clearly perceived how it was the â€˜â€™God of his fatherâ€™â€™ who sustained him, protected him, and blessed him throughout those twenty years (Genesis 29-31; cf. Genesis 31:5-9). As Jacob was returning home, having been delivered by God from Laban his uncle and petitioning for deliverance from Esau his brother, Jacob literally wrestles with God (in the form of an angel; Genesis 32:24-31). He is given the name Israel at that time. And after meeting with his brother Esau, Jacob/Israel moves to the area around Shechem. He builds an altar there, and names it El-Elohe-Israel: God, the God of Israel (Genesis 33:20). Jacob now had his own faith. The Scriptures make it clear that we cannot ride the coattails of our spiritual ancestors. Time would fail us if we talked about how for every Gideon there was an Abimelech, for every Hezekiah a Manasseh, and for every Josiah a Jehoiakim. Sadly, the children of some of the most righteous people in the Bible end up being some of the most wicked. The faith of their parents could not save them. Instead, we must be like Jacob. We must make the faith of those who came before us our own faith. We must believe in God and His truth because we have made our investigations and our inquiries and we have been satisfied (Acts 17:11-12). We must be able to make our own defense of our own hope that should be in us (1 Peter 3:15). We must have our own belief, deeply rooted within our own being, so that when we are shaken by trial, we have the resources of faith within us to continue to turn to God for sustenance. The spiritual world around us is littered with the corpses of those who never developed their own faith, and their profession of acceptance of the faith of their ancestors failed them when the difficult times arose. Let us not be like them, but develop our own faith, and live by it!
