SCUD audit questions trip
By STAN VOIT Editor
5C-N Eagles jersey retirement Rolland “Rollie” File’s No. 30 to be retired by Eagles tonight sports, Page A8
The president of Sevier County Utility District defends the spending of thousands of dollars on trips for employees — including himself — as part of a rewards program for builders who install gas appliances, but the state agency that audited the utility calls the practice improper and an abuse of public trust. A letter from director of the comptroller of the treasury’s audit division says Sevier County Utility District improperly spent $5,776 to send three employees on a trip last year to Costa Rica to what the auditor says was “an exotic allinclusive resort.” The trip was part of an incentive program the utility has to reward builders who install
“We disagree with the findings. It disturbs me we do not get a chance for an exit interview or a chance to respond to these concerns.” — SCUD president Matt Ballard of audit alleging misuse of funds
natural gas appliances in their construction projects. “We disagree with the findings,” Matt Ballard, utility president, said Friday. “It disturbs me we do not get a chance for an exit interview or a chance to respond to these concerns.” The letter to the utility from Dennis Dycus, director of the Division of Municipal Audit,
is dated Oct. 25, but apparently was leaked this week. It says the audit was begun after the office “became aware of the district’s participation in a 2009 promotional trip to Central America.” The rewards program, as Ballard explained it, is shared by several East Tennessee gas companies and was begun in the 1980s to promote the sale of natural gas. With competition from propane and electric utilities, Ballard said gas companies need a program that rewards builders who use gas appliances. Sevier County Utility District (SCUD) puts money in its budget each year to pay for half the cost of the trips. Spectra Energy, which is the utility’s pipeline vendor, pays the other half.

DiPietro new UT president Trustees choose Joe DiPietro by one-vote margin
By STAN VOIT Editor NASHVILLE — There is a good chance Cheryl Deaton will be away from her Pigeon Forge Primary School classroom a lot next year. Her selection as Tennessee Teacher of the Year carries with it a great deal of travel and public appearances, as well as a shot at national teacher of the year. That will be determined during a convention in Dallas early next
year. Deaton bested eight other finalists, including Pigeon Forge High history teacher Karen Kelley, to take the honor, announced at a banquet Thursday night at the Doubletree Hotel. She became the first Sevier County teacher to win the award since Edna Loveday did it almost 20 years ago. Deaton, with 34 years of experience as a public school educaSee Deaton, Page A4

Probe of fatal wreck ongoing
Senior Center hosts Elder Watch seminar By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer Various vendors and speakers from the community were part of the Elder Watch Fall Seminar, held at Fort Sanders Sevier Senior Center on Friday. “This is our annual information fair,” said Lisa Yarber, director of the center and Sevier County Office on Aging. “We’re focusing on safety — financial, driving, medication and safe sex (sexually-transmitted diseases are actually high in senior communities, she noted). We try to make it fun and simple, with something they can take away to make their lives safer.” Speakers included Jenny Pugh, Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center occupational therapist and driver rehab specialist. Pugh gave seniors numerous safety tips on driving, including choosing the right car (one with height-adjustable seats, good visibility and convenience features like push-button controls and levers); choosing safe routes (those with good

lighting, right-turn intersections and easy in-andout parking); and staying physically fit (maintaining flexibility and the proper amount of sleep). It was Angie Chapman’s first time at the information fair as MountainBrook Village marketing director (she had previously served at the retirement home as activities coordinator). “I’ve noticed that it’s tough for a lot of seniors to admit that it’s time for them to retire or move out of their homes — but they’re still curious about it,” Chapman said. “I tell them about our ShortTerm Stay, which is a good
paper for the seminar. “I came because I wanted to learn what’s going on and about health issues,” he said. “I’ve been coming to the center for a long time now — I enjoy it. They always have good programs.” Yarber said that programs like the Elder

The driver of the van, 38-year-old Thomas Johns Jr., was not injured in the wreck. Police have not filed any charges in relation to the accident. The investigation is continuing; officials will review all the evidence from the wreck before making any final rulings, said Bob Stahlke, public information

Fundraiser continues today

The Scouts are collecting supplies to benefit the Sevier County Humane Society. Non-Scouts may do the walk, but do not have to if they just want to drop off supplies needed by the humane society. Items needed include Purina brand dog and cat food, small kibble, kitty litter, bleach, animal toys, newspapers and clean old towels. Refreshments will be served and there will be an animal costume contest. Someone will be at the site from approximately 11 a.m. until 4 p.m. for those wanting to make donations.

Access to rest rooms raises questions By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE â€”Aldermen Barry Gibbs questioned city officials this week on whether the city could get the Chamber of Commerce to allow the use of its rest rooms as part of the Winterfest kickoff ceremony in the municipal complex next month. The city is set to start providing rest room â€œtrailersâ€? for the first time this year, but at the same time has decided to close the Community Center. Gibbs questioned why the city wouldnâ€™t use the rest rooms at the Chamber of Commerce office. The chamber rents its offices in the municipal complex from the city; chamber staff help to oversee the shows that take place during the kickoff events. â€œThe other option would be if we had toilets owned by the city that can be accessible (to the public),â€? he said. City officials said they wanted to use the trailers because the primary rest rooms available at previous events were the ones in the Civic Center, which is also used to display Christmas trees and for other parts of the event. The lines
to get into those rest rooms has been getting longer each year, and officials anticipate a bigger crowd this year because theyâ€™ve added more vendors. They are closing the community center, however, because of security concerns there â€” officials said there were too many people going in and out of the facility during the event. The city doesnâ€™t normally make the rest rooms in City Hall available during the event. Gibbs didnâ€™t question why those rest rooms were not made available, but persisted in questioning city staff on why the Chamber of Commerce wasnâ€™t being ordered to keep its rest rooms open; he noted the chamber rents the property from the city and the city gives money to the chamber. He said he was certain the waste storage tanks on the trailers would be filled before the event ended. Gibbs was the only alderman to vote against renting the trailers. Also Monday, the board voted unanimously to approve issuing a â€œletter of commitmentâ€? saying the city will provide $200,000 toward Walters State Community College. The letter doesnâ€™t explain how the city will make the payment; officials said they could use the
cityâ€™s contingency fund, take it out of next yearâ€™s budget or consider other options. The state announced recently that it was making funds available to community colleges, for use in capital projects. The colleges must come up with 15 percent of the funds needed for the building. Walters State officials wish to build a 40,000 square foot building on the Sevier County campus; they estimate it will cost about $8 million. The county committed Monday to pay $400,000; officials are asking for Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg to pay $200,000 each and say they hope to get the remaining $200,000 from private donations or their own funds. Also Monday, the board: n Appointed Joe Tarwater, John McClure and Brenda McCroskey to the Industrial Development Board and asked Vic Weals to serve another term with that organization n Paid a water usage bill for King Family library n Approved on final reading the rezoning of property on Mechanics Way from arterial commercial use to low density residential use n email@example.com

Deaton’s husband Bill died in June. He was a retired college administrator. The couple moved to Wears Valley about 10 years ago after he retired as a dean at West Virginia University. He lived long enough to see her named Sevier County’s top primary school teacher, but didn’t know she had been selected a state finalist. During her acceptance speech, she asked her children, William and Celia, to join her on stage as she told the audience about her husband and how proud he’d have been — not that she had won, but that education
Builders earn points for each appliance and become eligible for trips. In addition to the builders, three SCUD employees make the trip. Ballard said he always goes, as well as his vice president in charge of the program and his chief financial officer. They pay for their spouses’ expenses if they go too, Ballard said. The audit letter says the employees who went to Costa Rica “apparently were not required to earn their trip; they were selected by district management. There were virtually no organized events that required either district employees’ attendance or participation, District officials were not clear on how district employees’ participation in the trip increased the reward to builders for installing gas appliances or the incentive for builders to install gas appliances in future projects.” Ballard said one employee goes for every three builders and they “take care of their needs. We assist them.” Ballard said he sees no reason to pay back the money, but says the utility will rethink whether to participate in the program any more. He insists nothing was done illegally or in violation of the district’s ethics policy. He says it is not a personal vacation that he and the others should pay for. The SCUD board approves the program, he said.

Kincaid was the lone administrator or school board member to attend from Sevier County. “Cheryl puts children first in her life,” Kincaid said. “You can see it in her classroom.” Karen Kelley was happy for Deaton and glad she placed among the nine finalists. “I feel great,” Kelley said. “This has been one of my best years professionally.

The auditor found four areas of concern: n Use of public funds for a Costa Rica trip for public officials. “The board of commissioners have a duty to operate the district for the benefit of the district’s customers,” the letter said. It’s difficult to determine a benefit to district customers “from funding an extravagant trip.” n Use of public funds for extra excursions while in Costa Rica. n Public officials not taking leave time for such a trip. “There were virtually no organized professional events,” the letter said. “... The trip was essentially a vacation,” but employees did not use vacation time to take it. n Public officials accepted gifts from a vendor (Spectra), which auditors say violates SCUD’s own ethics policy. “We also learned that the utility district paid a portion of the cost of a Hawaiian cruise in 2005 and a Mediterranean cruise in 2007 for district employees and their guests. Both of these trips were also in conjunction with the Homebuilder’s program,” the letter said. Ballard said Spectra is the lone pipeline vendor, so that doesn’t violate the ethics policy. Ballard said any embarrassment to SCUD is over how the story is being played by media, not with the findings themselves. The letter says the audit findings will be turned over to the district attorney general.

Health insurers help GOP after dalliance with Dems WASHINGTON (AP) â€” Health insurers flirted with Democrats, supported them with money and got what they wanted: a federal mandate that most Americans carry health care coverage. Now theyâ€™re backing Republicans, hoping a GOP Congress will mean friendlier regulations. They may get more than theyâ€™re wishing for. The so-called individual mandate has provoked tea party conservatives, who see it as an example of big government interfer-
ence in personal decisions. Now Republican candidates are running on platforms that include repealing the broader health care law. And attorneys general from some 20 states â€” mainly Republicans â€” are challenging the mandate as unconstitutional. â€œIf you ended up repealing that one provision, the whole thing blows up,â€? said Bill Hoagland, the top lobbyist for Cigna Corp. â€œIt doesnâ€™t work. The cost would explode.â€? Still, Cigna, which early last
year had been funneling money to Democrats from its political action committee, has shifted from a 50-50 split between the parties to around 70-30 in favor of Republican candidates. Likewise, about $6 of $10 that Blue Cross Blue Shield Associationâ€™s PAC doled out from February through June 2009 went to Democrats. By last month, the ratio had shifted â€” Democrats got only about 35 percent of the insurerâ€™s PAC money. In all, from January through
WASHINGTON (AP) â€” The Obama administration on Friday laid out a fiveyear, $2 billion military aid package for Pakistan as it pressed the Islamabad government to intensify its fight against extremists there and in neighboring Afghanistan. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton announced the plan during the latest round of U.S.-Pakistani strategic dialogue. The administration will ask Congress for $2 billion for Pakistan to purchase U.S.-made arms, ammunition and accessories from 2012 to 2016, Clinton said. The aid comes even as the administration is withholding assistance to certain individual Pakistani military units suspected

irony,â€? said Robert Laszewski, a former insurance executive turned consultant. â€œThe insurance industry could be fighting with its traditional ally, the Republicans, not to cripple the bill, not to put a bomb inside the thing.â€? Meanwhile, an Associated Press-GfK poll finds likely voters in the upcoming elections evenly split on whether the law should be scrapped or whether Congress should undertake even bigger changes in the way Americans get their health care.
U.S. ups Pakistani military aid
STOCK EXCHANGE HIGHLIGHTS DOW JONES
August of 2009, the health insurance industry donated $2.15 million to Democrats and $1.7 million to Republicans, according to monthly figures compiled by the Center for Responsive Politics. Since September of 2009, the industry has donated $2.4 million to Democrats and nearly $3.3 million to Republicans. The GOP advantage has grown even as Republican candidates call for outright repeal of the health care law. â€œThis is really an incredible

of human rights abuses, including extrajudicial killings and torture. And, it comes amid ongoing concerns that Pakistan is not fully committed to fighting extremists along its border with Afghanistan. The new aid replaces a similar but less valuable package that began in 2005 and expired on Oct. 1. It will complement $7.5 billion in civilian assistance the administration
has already committed to Pakistan over five years, some of which has been diverted to help the country deal with devastating floods. The U.S. hopes the announcement, made by Clinton with Pakistani Foreign Minister Shah Mahmood Qureshi at her side, will reassure Pakistan of the long-term U.S. commitment to Pakistanâ€™s military needs.
Number of diabetics could triple by 2050 ATLANTA (AP) â€” As many as 1 in 3 U.S. adults could have diabetes by the year 2050, federal officials announced Friday, in a dramatic revision of earlier projections. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention estimate that 1 in 10 have diabetes now, but the number could grow to 1 in 5 or even 1 in 3 by mid-century if current trends continue.
â€œThis is alarming,â€? said Ann Albright, director of the CDCâ€™s Division of Diabetes Translation. The agencyâ€™s projections have been a work in progress. The last revision put the number at 39 million in 2050. The new estimate takes it to the range of 76 million to 100 million. An estimated 24 million Americans have diabetes currently. The new CDC calculation accounts
for people who have diabetes but are undiagnosed â€” a group that wasnâ€™t figured into earlier estimates, explained Edward W. Gregg, chief of the CDC branch that handles diabetes epidemiology and statistics. Also, the researchers used new population growth estimates for the elderly and minorities, who have higher rates of Type 2 diabetes, he said.

DiPietro new UT system president KNOXVILLE (AP) — University of Tennessee trustees in an 11-10 vote Friday picked Joe DiPietro, the chancellor of the UT Institute of Agriculture, to be the UT system’s new president. The board selected DiPietro, 59, over West Virginia Higher Education Policy Commission Chancellor Brian Noland, 43. “I come to you sort of floating on air, I admit,” DiPietro said at a crowded news conference hours later. “But I am confident I can do this job. With a great land-grant university like Tennessee, it ties right back to every county, every city.” The UT system includes campus-
es in Knoxville, Chattanooga and Martin; the Health Science Center in Memphis; state Institutes of Agriculture and Public Service; and the Space Institute in Tullahoma. Jim Murphy, vice chairman of the board, said after a search panel unanimously nominated both of the finalists Wednesday that he expected the vote to be close. Murphy said he supported DiPietro because of his success at multiple land-grant institutions and his ability to lead his staff. DiPietro was the dean of the College of Veterinary Medicine at the University of Florida from 1997 to 2006 and a former administrator at the University of Illinois,

Celebrities in the news n Lindsay
LOS ANGELES (AP) — A court filing shows Lindsay Lohan told probation officials last week that she didn’t want to remain in an inpatient rehab facility because it would be a financial hardship. Lohan’s comments are documented in Lohan a probation report filed in advance of a hearing Friday during which a judge ordered the actress to remain in rehab until Jan. 3. The actress was interviewed by officials on Oct. 14. The documents say she was advocating to leave the Betty Ford Center so she could continue to work. Probation officials and Lohan’s doctors recommended she remain at Betty Ford. The report summarizes Lohan’s interview, saying she told an officer that “continued inpatient treatment would be a hardship financially, and damaging to her career.”

Three Cheers SMS students touched by Columbine victim
Welcome to ‘The View’ a chilly one Now that I’ve had a week to think about the big controversy on “The View,” I’ve come to the conclusion that my comment that “Muslims killed us on 9/11” was really not what caused Whoopi Goldberg and Joy Behar to walk off the set. No doubt that pithy piece of analysis ticked them off, but there is more to this deal than meets the eye. Keeping in mind that I could be wrong about my speculation, let’s walk through this. I’ve been on “The View” a number of times, and usually things are lively but under control. We’ve even had some laughs. But when I entered the studio last week, I picked up a different vibe, especially from Goldberg. I even mentioned it when I walked out, telling Whoopi she didn’t look happy to see me. She replied that she had gas. Sometimes I have that effect on people. The conversation was centered on my book “Pinheads and Patriots: Where You Stand in the Age of Obama.” From the jump, Behar seemed offended that I mentioned the president’s falling poll numbers. In fact, a chill descended that would have made Frosty the Snowman nervous. The ladies quickly disposed of the economy as a “Bush problem” but became agitated when I put forth that Obama had created a gulf between him and some regular Americans. I backed up my analysis by saying the president’s refusal to comment on the “wisdom” of building a mosque near Ground Zero was a mistake. Goldberg asked why. I replied that the mosque’s location was inappropriate because “Muslims killed us on 9/11.” That caused Goldberg and Behar to head for the locker room, and it wasn’t even halftime. Believe me when I tell you that I had no idea the conversation was going to end up like that. I simply went on that program to reach an audience that might not watch me on the Fox News Channel. Plus, “The View” gave away my book to all the people in the audience. And I got a banana and juice in the greenroom. When the ladies walked out in a huff, I have to be honest, I was surprised but kind of pleased. I knew that everybody would see the incident on the Internet and that I could milk a number of segments for my TV program. It seemed like a good deal to me at the time, and looking back, I think the display had as much to do with Obama’s declining fortunes as it did with Muslims. But as it turns out, an important point has emerged from all of this. Political correctness was breached, and millions of folks heard the truth. Muslims did kill us on 9/11, and there is a Muslim problem in the world. If you want to walk away from that truth, I can’t stop you. But a better strategy would be for all of us to acknowledge the danger coming out of the Muslim world and work together to mitigate it. — Veteran TV news anchor Bill O’Reilly is host of the Fox News show “The O’Reilly Factor” and author of the book “Who’s Looking Out For You?” To find out more about Bill O’Reilly, and read features by other Creators Syndicate writers and cartoonists, visit the Creators Syndicate web page at www.creators.com.

A 17-year-old girl, the victim of a random shooting in one of the most infamous campus massacres in history, reached out posthumously and touched the lives of dozens of the Sevierville Middle School students this week. The SMS students learned of an extraordinary young woman named Rachel Scott, who died at Columbine High School 11 years ago, at an assembly arranged by their principal. Inspired by Holocaust victim Anne Frank, who had written in her diary, “I want to go on living after death,” Scott, in one of the six journals she kept, wrote, “I will make an impact on the world.” Through a ministry called Rachel’s Challenge started by her dad, she is perhaps making more of an impact after her all-too-soon death. Scott was a champion of the disabled, those who were new at school and those who were picked on or put down. Dozens of SMS students signed a pledge to accept that challenge. Who knows what she would have accomplished if she had lived, but Rachel Scott did not die in vain.
Farmers Market finds a niche in Gatlinburg
There’s so much to do in the Gatlinburg area that it’s easy to get lost in the shuffle. It’s close to the national park, there’s all the shops, the attractions, the restaurants and the special events. To survive and thrive in Gatlinburg — especially if you’re a new kid on the block — you’ve got to be pretty special. So it was that residents celebrated the end of the first year of the weekly Gatlinburg Farmers Market, enjoying a party-like atmosphere and vowing to be back bigger and even better next spring. The focal point of the day was a Harvestfest, which included pumpkin painting, apple bobbing, and costume contest for four-legged friends and, of course, plenty of good food. All sorts of items were sold during the inaugural season — handcrafts such as woven shawls and corn husk dolls, a wide variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, items freshly baked in local ovens, even lye soap. The market board is already looking ahead to next year. Make a note to yourself and plan to check it out.
Wears Valley festival appears to be promising
Just as the curtain is dropping on one inaugural event in Gatlinburg, another is rising a few miles down the road in Wears Valley. Instead of the year-long farmer’s market on the mountain, the newly formed Wears Valley Chamber of Commerce hopes to make its Oktoberfest an annual event. The event started Friday and runs through Sunday from 9 a.m. to 7 p.m. daily in the field on Wears Valley Road next to Tennessee State Bank. Organizers say the response has been startlingly good. More than 120 crafters and 36 vendors have signed on. Film crews are coming from two countries and there will be a national lumberjacking contest that is expected to draw about 70 participants. If that’s not enough, there will be pony rides for children, a climbing wall, face painting, a display of more than 60 antique tractors, music and food, and even a pumpkin patch. There will be a suggested $5 fee for parking, with proceeds to benefit the Wears Valley VFD, Wearwood Elementary and area churches. What a way to get started!

Investigation could change unfair practice Tennessee Attorney General Bob Cooper’s decision to join an investigation of foreclosure practices could raise awareness of one of the state’s long-standing anti-consumer policies. Either from indifference or to please the mortgage industry, the General Assembly has maintained a policy that doesn’t require lenders to obtain court orders to execute foreclosure. Tennessee is among about 25 states that allow lenders simply to notify a trustee when payments are not made on promissory notes, triggering the archaic practice of foreclosing on the courthouse steps. That means lenders are not required to send certified letters informing homeowners that the foreclosure process has
begun, said Sapna Raj, managing attorney for the Memphis Fair Housing Center. It means homeowners who are in trouble on their loans don’t have to be taken to court. And that means families facing eviction often don’t get the news until the last minute, increasing the difficulties they are already having stabilizing their finances. The practice is unfair, and it is becoming increasingly evident that it is bad for the economy. While federal and state officials are trying to find ways to prevent foreclosures through federally sponsored loan modification programs and the like, Tennessee’s foreclosure policy is working against them. In some cases, the “left hand doesn’t know
what the right hand is doing,” observed attorney Webb Brewer, who has worked with a family that was told their modification request was being processed after foreclosure was initiated. Cooper decided to enter the investigation of faulty foreclosure practices after revelations that in judicial foreclosure states employees of some companies acknowledged signing foreclosure documents without reading them. That has cast doubt on the legitimacy of the foreclosures and the institutional indifference that can pervade the process. One of the most devastating financial setbacks in the life of a family should be given a lot more care than that.

Seymour earns 2nd straight IMAC win By RICH HAILEY Sports Correspondent ROGERSVILLE — It was the kind of game where young men grow up and coaches go bald, but last minute heroics by the Eagles offense sealed the
victory for Seymour (3-6, 2-3 in the conference) over the host Cherokee Chiefs 28-22. It was the second conference win in a row for the Eagles, who close out the regular season next week at home against confer-
ence opponent Morristown West. The first quarter saw the clock-grinding ground game of the Chiefs smash against the Eagles’ stingy defense. The Chiefs moved the ball 25 yards on six runs,
but were forced to air out the ball after a bobbled ball left them with third and long. Their pass was incomplete and the Chiefs were set to punt, but a bad snap forced the punter to run, and 26 yards later the team
had a new set of downs deep in Eagle territory. A holding penalty against Cherokee forced them into another passing situation, and a perfectly timed leap by D.J. Griffin broke up a nicely thrown ball into the Eagle end zone, denying
the Chiefs the touchdown and forcing them to go for it on 4th-and-2. The Eagle defense held up, and the offense finally got a chance to go to work from their own 5-yard line See EAGLES, Page A12
G-P swats Hornets 56-14 By RUSTY ODOM Sports Correspondent GATLINBURG — GatlinburgPittman put together one of their best performances of the 2010 season Friday night in a 56-14 romp of District 3-AAA rival Carter (3-6, 1-4). The visiting Hornets’ football roster is overflowing with talent, but the fans who followed a full moon from Strawberry Plains to Hammonds Field saw their Carter team easily outmatched. The Highlanders (6-3, 3-3) dominated the contest from the opening whistle in every phase of the game. The scoring started early for G-P with senior Walter Barber’s touchdown run from 20 yards out. According to longtime G-P head coach Benny Hammonds, the initial minutes of the game were the most important. “We wanted to get out to a good start because Carter has started fast the last couple of weeks. We’ve got a great group of seniors who are capable of making big plays and we did it from the start tonight.” The second Highlander possession featured another pair of Hammonds’ talented seniors. The drive concluded when wideout Ron Durbin caught a 35-yard touchdown pass from senior quarterback Tye Marshall after a goal line stand from the Highlander defense on Carter’s opening possession. Durbin added another score See HIGHLANDERS, Page A9

Sevier County senior Jake Reppert (51) was a bear on the defensive line Friday night, helping the Purple and White to an astonishing 12 sacks against South-Doyle’s offense.
Purple defense overwhelms Cherokees By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor KNOXVILLE — The Sevier County offense wasn’t up to its usual high standards Friday night at South-Doyle. Lucky for them, the defense picked up the slack and played perhaps their most outstanding game of the season. A smothering performance, highlighted by 12 quarterback sacks, helped the Purple and White (7-2, 5-1) to a one-sided 37-7 blow-out of the Cherokees (1-8, 1-5) in an all-important
IMAC matchup. “We weren’t real smooth tonight (on offense),” SCHS coach Steve Brewer said. “(But) I thought our defense played great, and our offense did what they had to do.” Senior defensive linemen
Ronnie Homerding and Jake Reppert led the defensive front’s merciless attack on South-Doyle QB Taylor Mason, and combined with defensive ends John Berry and Thomas Hamilton, shut down almost everything the Cherokee offense tried. The Bears’ secondary also played well, and senior Josh Johnson recorded his teamleading fifth interception. “They (the defensive tackles) has (brought it). I love how those guys are playing,” Brewer said. “Along with our defensive ends. We had some nice stunts
on tonight and I thought we timed those up well and made some things happen. I have a lot of confidence in our secondary, too, and we’re just playing well defensively right now.” Sevier County senior quarterback Danny Chastain mostly had a night to forget with a trio of interceptions, but he did step up when it mattered most, finding receivers Brett Pippin and Casey Ritter for TDs and connecting with sophomore Dillon Cate six times for 64 yards.

Bama hoping to show toughness vs. Vols By BETH RUCKER AP Sports Writer KNOXVILLE â€” Alabama coach Nick Saban expects the Crimson Tide to do more than just win. Lately, theyâ€™ve been letting him down. â€œSomewhere along the line this year we sort of lost our edge,â€? Saban said. â€œIâ€™m talking about the intangibles of playing with toughness and giving effort. We got too satisfied with winning and not playing to a standard. I think thatâ€™s affected our entire team.â€? Dissatisfied with a loss to South Carolina and a lack of domination in a win over Mississippi, Saban is looking for a sharper performance by Alabama (6-1, 3-1) against a faltering Tennessee team on Saturday. Not so fast, say the Volunteers (2-4, 0-3), who have been watching as other underdogs have upset their Southeastern Conference foe. Theyâ€™re confident in the way theyâ€™ve prepared for the Tide after a blowout loss to Georgia and a bye weekend. â€œEvery day in the SEC you have to come ready to play, and if you come to play, obviously, upsets can happen,â€? defensive end Chris Walker said. That was almost the case a year ago for Tennessee, a 16 1/2-point underdog just as it is this season. The Vols had a chance to win on a 44-yard field goal attempt by Daniel Lincoln, but the low kick hit Terrence Cody in the armpit, and Alabama got the 12-10 win to remain undefeated en route to the national championship. It was the Tideâ€™s narrowest margin of victory all season. The Tide have won that past three against the Vols, but havenâ€™t taken four in

in District 3-AA) took the gameâ€™s opening kick and marched 75 yards on 17 plays, eating 8:39 off the openingquarter clock, and capped the drive with a six-yard aerial strike on 3rd-and-goal from sophomore quarterback Cory Fox to sophomore receiver Kaleb Black. Pigeon Forge kicker Blake Adamsâ€™ pointafter kick was true, making it 7-0 Pigeon Forge with 3:21 remaining in the first quarter. The Tigers converted two 4thand-short opportunities on the drive to keep it alive. The Orange-and-Black defense held up its side of the fairy tale start by forcing Austin-East (6-3 overall, 5-0 in District 3-AA) to punt after allowing just one first down. The Tigers started their second drive of the night from their own 20, and Pigeon Forge held a seven-point lead and possession of the football heading into the second quarter of play. But after picking up two first downs and moving the ball to midfield, Pigeon Forge junior fullback Michael Lombrana was stripped of the football and Austin-East grabbed possession for a turnover with 10:32 in the half. The spell seemed to have been broken, and things were never the same the rest of the night for the Tigers. Austin-East capitalized on the turnover seven plays later when junior quarterback Donald Oggs connected with senior receiver Cedric Isom for a 14-yard score with 7:42 until intermission.

Tauren Poole hopes to be the first back to gain 100 yards against Alabama this season. a row since winning seven straight from 1986-92. The Vols followed up with a winning streak from 19952001. A win in the annual Third Saturday in October game over their longestrunning rival wouldnâ€™t just be a confidence boost for the Vols during a frustrating rebuilding effort. It would also mean coach Derek Dooleyâ€™s first SEC win and a victory over his former boss. Dooley isnâ€™t focused on any of those things. Heâ€™d like to just see a little improvement from two weeks ago when the Vols couldnâ€™t seem to do anything right against Georgia. â€œAll I care about is competing, and thatâ€™s all I tell them,â€? Dooley said. â€œI just want to see us go com-
pete like youâ€™re in the back yard. When youâ€™re in the back yard, you donâ€™t back down, and you donâ€™t get your head down when your buddy completes a pass on you or when the nextdoor neighbor beats you on a double-move post. Competing means not getting affected and playing aggressive. Weâ€™re not there yet.â€? Itâ€™s not just the odds that are stacked against Tennessee. Alabama excels in nearly every statistical category and the matchups on the field seem to favor the Crimson Tide. That could be good news for Alabama tailbacks Mark Ingram and Trent Richardson, who havenâ€™t had much success lately. Opponents have stacked the line of scrimmage, daring the Tide to beat them
was true, knotting it at 7-7. The Pigeon Forge offense tried to respond on the ensuing possession by picking up a pair of first downs and moving it to its own 43. But the Roadrunners defense stiffened, forcing the Tigers into a 4th-and-16. The Pigeon Forge punt was blocked, giving A-E the ball at the Tigers 38. Once again, Austin-East capitalized four plays later when junior running back Cordy Cox took it 17 yards to paydirt on a sweep right with 2:22 in the half. Williamsâ€™ PAT kick was blocked by Tigers senior Coty Young, but A-E led for the first time, 13-7, which stood at the break. A-E added to its lead early in the third quarter after senior kick returner Charles Holland gave the Roadrunners possession at the Pigeon Forge 45 with a 41-yard kickoff return. Two plays later, Oggs took a QB keeper for a 45-yard touchdown with 11:31 in the third. Senior running back Trevell Boatwright ran in the twopoint score to make it 21-7 A-E. The Tigers refused to quit, however, and the Orange and Black earned a 1st-and-goal at the A-E 9 after Fox found junior receiver Shane Sharp deep down the left sideline for a 39-yard completion. But the drive stalled with a turnover on downs with 6:29 in the third quarter, and hopes of a Pigeon Forge upset faded. A-E made it the eventual final with 4:48 in the game when senior running back Travius Blair broke free for a 46-yard run to paydirt. Williamsâ€™ kick was again blocked by Pigeon Forgeâ€™s Young, but the Roadrunners had grown their
lead to an insurmountable 20 points. Pigeon Forge finished the game with 16 first downs, compared to A-Eâ€™s six. And the Tigers were outgained by just a 213-209 margin in total yards. The Tigers also led in another key category, turnovers. They had two fumbles lost and an interception thrown, compared to just one fumble lost for A-E. Lombrana led Pigeon Forge with 59 yards on 12 carries, and sophomore running back Patrick Barbieri added 48 yards on 22 totes. Black had two catches for 21 yards and a score, and he also had three carries for another 11 yards. Fox led Pigeon Forge in receiving yards with 39 on the one grab. Pigeon Forge next hosts District 3-AA and arch county rival Gatlinburg-Pittman Highlanders (6-3 overall, 2-3 in District 3-AA) â€” coached by 39th-year head man Benny Hammonds â€” for a special televised Thursday night event with a 7 p.m. kickoff. It will be the fourth Hammonds Bowl between father-and-son coaches.

with the passing game. Quarterback Greg McElroy has been effective enough the past two weeks, completing twothirds of his passes for 534 yards, four touchdowns and no interceptions even as top receiver Julio Jones has played with a broken hand. But McElroy has also been sacked 11 times in two games. The Vols are giving up a league-high 381 yards and have a league-low seven sacks so far. On the other side of the ball, Dooley plans to try out backup quarterback Tyler Bray early against Alabama in hopes of finding a spark for an offense thatâ€™s averaging 321.8 yards and 23.3 points â€” worse than all other SEC teams except Vanderbilt. Matt Simms is still the starter, but Bray has practiced well enough to earn some meaningful snaps. Heâ€™ll do so against a stingy Alabama defense thatâ€™s allowing only 288 yards and 12.9 points. There are little things the Crimson Tide defensive players arenâ€™t satisfied with, like the fact theyâ€™ve only gotten eight sacks this season. If they manage to correct those, perhaps theyâ€™ll be living up to Sabanâ€™s expectations. â€œCoach Saban and the other coaches have been preaching about doing the little things, whether it be lining up a yard or two yards outside of the seam, or not getting your head across the tackle or anything like that,â€? Alabama linebacker Dontâ€™a Hightower said. â€œI feel like the last week thatâ€™s what weâ€™ve been doing and seen the results,â€? he added, â€œso thatâ€™s the approach weâ€™re taking this week, try and do the little things right.â€?

Chastain ended the night 18-for-29 passing for 219 yards. Senior running back Dakota Cogdill had the biggest offensive night for the Bears, rushing for 120 yards on 13 carries and scoring three TDs. After a slow start to the contest which saw neither team threaten in the first three possessions, Sevier County finally found their footing midway through the first quarter. The Bears capped a nine play drive with a beautiful 37-yard TD strike from Chastain to Pippin. The Jared Baxter extra point made the score 7-0. After a picture-perfect 49-yard Cogdill punt later in the quarter pinned the Cherokees up at their own 4, the defense looked to put some points of their own on the board. And, on 3rd-and-13 from the 1, the Bears did just that. Senior linebacker Zac Lewis blitzed the S-D QB and slowed him, and moments later Homerding

on a scramble down the right sideline for 52 yards and just minutes into the contest, Gatlinburg Pittman led 21-0. â€œAny time you get the ball in Ron Durbinâ€™s hands heâ€™s got the capability to break one,â€? said Hammonds. â€œHeâ€™s a ball player.â€? In the first quarter alone, the Highlanders racked up 222 total yards of offense (85 passing, 137 rushing), most of it coming from Durbin. Carterâ€™s offense moved the ball several times during the first half, but the G-P defense always found a way to cut the fuse before the Hornetâ€™s playmakers were able to explode for a scoring play. After a 53-yard completion from Carterâ€™s Ryan Kirkland to Anthony Lewis, G-P cornerback Brandon Merritt broke up a deep throw that would have given the Hornets a score and kept them in the game. Merrittâ€™s efforts were matched on the following play when defensive lineman Bill Huskey batted a pass into the air which lineback Hunter Meier picked off and returned to midfield. After another Durbin score, the Hornets began to move the ball again. But the drive would end when the Highlandersâ€™ bend but donâ€™t break defense forced its second goal line stop of the first half on a fourth and goal from the one-yard-line. Four plays later, Barber finished the drive with an 8-yard run. Barber also had a 47-yard run on the drive where nearly every member of the Hornet defense whiffed in pursuit of the shifty powerback. Hammonds spoke about the first-year transfer from Alabama and his adjustment to life as a G-P football player. and Reppert came crashing in to record the safety. Early in the second quarter the Bears stretched their lead to 16-0, thanks to a 16-yard TD pass from Chastain to Ritter. After more terrorizing of the South-Doyle offense, the Bears got the ball back at midfield. From there it took seven plays, including three passes to Cate, to get the team in scoring position at the Cherokeeâ€™s 14. The next play went to Cogdill, and he took it to the house to up the ante to 23-0 Bears, which is where the score stood at halftime. Five minutes into the third quarter Cogdill was at it again, capping a drive in which he rushed for over 40 yards with a three-yard scoring plunge. Cogdill added his final touchdown in the opening
â€œHe is really fitting in and enjoying this team,â€? said Hammonds. â€œAnd he keeps getting a little bit better each week.â€? Barber finished the game with 228 total yards and three touchdowns, the last score coming on an 85-yard half-back screen that nearly resulted in a safety and featured the kind of grownup stiff-arm youâ€™d see on a Sunday. In the race for the game ball, Durbin added a 64-yard punt return TD, which was his fourth score of the night. Durbin racked up 225 allpurpose yards against the Hornets, while Marshall finished the game completing 5-of-6 passes for 171 yards and two touchdowns. Carter would add two late scores to erase the shutout and G-P sophomore Jamel Foster darted through the Hornet defense a 48-yard TD to make the final score 56-14. The next opponent for Hammonds and the Highlanders will be against a familiar foe. It will be the fourth installment of the Hammonds bowl, which will pit father against son. When asked what the annual battle, father Benny answered as only he could. â€œWell heâ€™s my son, and I like to see him do well, but not when it comes to family feuds,â€? he said with a smile, â€œyouâ€™d rather beat your family members than anybody, thatâ€™s what makes it fun. Iâ€™m sure they are going to be playing as hard as they can and hopefully weâ€™ve got our team ready to play.â€? Father will travel to son next Thursday night when GatlinburgPittman plays at Pigeon Forge in the last game of the regular season for both teams. firstname.lastname@example.org
minutes of the fourth quarter, putting Sevier County up 37-0. As has been the case a few times this season, the Bears second-team defense couldnâ€™t maintain the shutout. With just over five minutes to go South-Doyleâ€™s Sterling Hickey caught a 16-yard TD pass from Mason to erase the Bearsâ€™ shutout. That was all theyâ€™d manage, however. â€œItâ€™s a win, a region win, and we stand a chance to finish out,â€? Brewer said. â€œWeâ€™ve got a great offense to face next week in Morristown East, and weâ€™re going to have to be much sharper offensively and weâ€™re going to have to bring our defense.â€? The game is set for 7:30 p.m. at Burke-Toney Stadium in Morristown. email@example.com

going to be forgotten.â€? The Carson-Newman soccer program certainly hasnâ€™t forgotten, even though none of the current players were around when File was a part of the team. File would have graduated in the spring, along with the rest of the freshman of â€˜06. The C-N program has had lights at its field since the 2008 soccer season thanks in large part to the Rollie File Memorial Soccer Lighting Fund. File had written an essay for school called Soccer Spotlight, and it was about the advantages of having a lighted field. Fileâ€™s argument The Mountain Press for lights was to draw more student fans with Rollie File (1) playing soccer for the availability of night games. â€œHe nailed it,â€? said Steve File. â€œThe games G-P in March of 2006. now have several hundred fans in attendance, has a terrific program.â€? when they use to just have a few.â€? C-N soccer coach Allen Vital said that retiring The Eagles also hold an annual Rollie File Memorial Tournament, which is a preseason Rollieâ€™s jersey just makes sense for the Eaglesâ€™ fund-raising event for the C-N soccer program. program. â€œRollieâ€™s life has impacted our program in a The Eagles players serve a referees in youth socspecial way,â€? said Vital. â€œItâ€™s one of those amazcer matches at several locations for the event. â€œItâ€™s a pretty neat tournament,â€? said Steve ing things that happen. â€œRight away, when (Rollie died), it had a huge File. â€œItâ€™s played at several different parks, and each of the parks have several fields. They coor- impact on our players. But long after that, he dinate it by cell phone, and all the games start at continues to impact our program. â€œHis parents are still fans and are at almost all exactly 8 a.m., and itâ€™s opened by a 30-second ovation. All the officials, players and fans all give the home games. And all the players even today know his parents very well and really embrace an ovation, and then they start the games. â€œThe ovation is for Rollie, but itâ€™s also for them. â€œThe family continues to be a big part of our everybody. It means a lot to us. â€œAll these activities keep (Rollieâ€™s) presence program ..., and we have had different things there for everyone to see. Heâ€™s a great kid, and we do to help keep Rollieâ€™s memory alive. We we want him to be loved and remembered. Itâ€™s just thought it was fitting to retire his jersey. No. 30 for our program has meaning for us, and we an exciting thing for us. â€œThe team has really become an extended think the best thing is that we retire his jersey family. Itâ€™s been great to go over there, support and keep that as a special number. â€œWe want to make sure that Rollie is not forthem and cheer them on. â€œAll the players on the team now didnâ€™t know gotten, and I donâ€™t think weâ€™re in danger of that Rollie. They all came in after he was gone. So, on our campus.â€? Rollieâ€™s family continues to remain strong. itâ€™s been kind of special that weâ€™ve established those relationships, and weâ€™ve been able to keep His mother, Donna File, will be celebrating along with Steve as the couple hits their 25-year it going with the new guys coming in. â€œAnd itâ€™s exciting soccer.

with just under six minutes left in the quarter. Short runs by Dustin Fain and Lee Knight set up a nice sideline pass to Cory Clark that was good for 20 yards. On the next play, Knight showed his explosive speed, blazing for 63 yards and an Eagle 1st-and-goal on the Cherokee 7. One play later, Knight finished the job, boring through the Chiefs for seven yards and six points. The Chiefs next possession showed some promise when they completed a 36-yard pass into Eaglesâ€™ territory. Once again, the defense stiffened up, and when Cherokee went for it on 4th-and-4, Kevin Taylor recorded a 4-yard sack to give the Eagles the ball. The quarter ended with the Eagles at their own 30, facing a 3rd-and-5. The second quarter opened on a dramatic 70-yard touchdown pass from Fain to Clark. The Eagles went for two, and Knight strolled into the end zone, making the score 14-0. It was Senior Night for the Cherokees, and the Chiefs were not about to quit. They used a combination of power running and sharp passing to drive the ball 63 yards for the touchdown. They successfully completed a twopoint conversion, closing the gap to six points. The Eagles had a good drive going, but it was ended when the Chiefs intercepted a Fain pass. The Seymour defense

returned the favor, recovering a Chiefâ€™s fumble on the next drive, which gave the Eagles a scoring opportunity with 2 minutes to go in the half. Three penalties, including an unsportsmanlike conduct for 19 yards, put an end to that opportunity and the half ended with no further scoring. Seymour got the ball first in the second half, and quickly marched down the field, once again propelled by the strong running of Knight, who broke one run for 43 yards which set up a Fain two-yard touchdown run. Seymour tried for two but came up short. Thanks to a short kick and a nice return, the Chiefs started their next possession at midfield. They marched the ball down the field, helped by three Seymour penalties, and scored. Worse than giving up the touchdown, Seymour lost Cory Clark to an ankle injury during the drive. He left the game and did not return. The Seymour offense tried to respond, but the defense was keying on Knight, and Seymour was forced to punt the ball away. Jonathan Hurst got a great roll on his first punt of the night, pinning the

Chiefs back to their own 16. The Eagle defenders dug deep and the quarter ended with the Chiefs facing 3rd-and-10. The fourth quarter started with the Seymour defense once again throttling the Chiefs, who were forced to punt the ball away. Branson White took the punt for about 50 yards, then received 15 more yards as Cherokee was penalized for a horse collar tackle. The Seymour offense had the ball first and ten at the Chief 14, but were unable to move the ball against a defense that was keying on Knight. The ball was turned over on downs, and the Chiefs had the opportunity to take the lead for the first time in the game. They took advantage four plays later, as Cameron Duckworth beat a Seymour defender and took a pass 77 yards for the touchdown and the lead. Time was running out, and it seemed the Chiefs had an answer for Seymourâ€™s running game. But senior running back Kevin Kennedy had something left to say, and he said it with a 51-yard touchdown run that slammed the door on the Cherokees. The final score was 28-22. After the game, Coach Jim Moore was uncharacteristically short of words. â€œIt was a great effort guys, a great effort. We talked about it all week and did exactly what we needed to do. Iâ€™m just proud of these kids. They played hard, got behind, and came right back. I feel real good.â€?

Brother’s overreaction may be sign of mental illness
Dear Annie: About 10 years ago, my brother, “Sam,” stopped speaking to me. The reason was that he set me up with his best friend when I was 18, but after two years together, I realized it wasn’t going anywhere and broke it off. Sam went ballistic on me: I broke up with the greatest guy in the world. Nobody else would ever want me. I hurt his best friend, and he could never trust me again. Four years ago, Sam informed me via certified letter that he was getting married and if I set one foot inside the church, he would call the police. I sent him a gift, and it took eight months before I received a thank-you note from his wife, a woman I’ve never met. Last month, I sent my brother an e-mail asking if we could let the past rest because I was getting married and wanted him to be a part of my big day. I got the most awful response. He said the world would be a better place if I just stopped living, that nobody loved me and that I was a vile human being. He even went to my fiance’s office to tell him how awful I am in the hope that he’d dump me. Thankfully, my fiance laughed it off. My parents keep saying Sam will come around, but after 10 years, I doubt it. To top it off, my parents are so worried about upsetting Sam (They are afraid he’ll keep them from seeing the grandchildren.) that they are not planning to attend my wedding, either. Why can’t my brother get past this? — Midwest Dear Midwest: Sam
sounds mentally ill. His reaction to your breakup with his best friend was completely irrational, and the fact that it has lasted 10 years is a grudge out of all proportion. It’s a shame your parents feel blackmailed into appeasing him. You cannot make this better on your own. We hope you have wonderful in-laws who will fill the void. Dear Annie: I have been married to “Joe” for two years. We were both widowed for several years before that. Joe sold his house and moved into mine. I have tried to make him feel that this is his home, too, but I get very little financial help from him. Joe has been unemployed for a year, but even when he was working, the most he contributed each month was $400. I recently found out that he is still giving money to his 32-year-old daughter, who is also unemployed. He has also put her name on everything, so that in the event of his death, she inherits all he owns. Did I mention that there is no sex anymore because Joe says his blood pressure medication prevents it? After re-reading this letter, I guess I don’t need your advice. I am filing for divorce on Monday. — Older and Wiser

For Better Or Worse
Dear Older: Well, OK then. Glad we could help clarify your thoughts. Dear Annie: I laughed at the letter from “Alone in Casper,” who boasts that he is a gourmet cook, cleans the bathroom and plans to stay put in his “conservative community,” and then disses women his own age for their interest in crafts and their families. He’s been divorced twice and prides himself on not “lowering his standards.” Reading between the lines, I’m willing to bet this gasbag is a fussy, territorial neat-freak who would make Felix Unger look like a hobo. As for his ill-concealed bitterness toward women his age, why, how dare they occupy themselves with their gardens and grandbabies instead of with him! I’m sure he is involved in theatrical events — as long as he gets to play the lead. He might appear to be a nice catch, but he sounds like a crusty old crab to me. — Queen Tut Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
