County complaints irk BOMA Panel responds during workshop to accusations about water contract By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer
5Signing on the dotted line Seymour Lady Eagle will play college hoops in 2010-2011
SEVIERVILLE — The Board of Mayor and Aldermen hopes to talk with county commissioners soon regarding their complaints about the city water system, especially after learning the
county notified city employees Monday about plans to build two new water lines that would presumably use city water. Monday’s BOMA workshop was the first time the board has publicly discussed the county’s threat to file a lawsuit to regain revenues the county believes
Sevierville owes for water service the city extended into the county. The County Commission discussed the issue at a regular meeting earlier this year. Under the terms of a 1997 contract, the Sevierville water department — previously an independent water board — has
extended more than 17 miles of water lines into the county to serve about 370 customers, City Administrator Steve Hendrix said. That contract calls for the city to split any net revenues from those lines with the county; See BOMA, Page A4

Go Green parade
Woman from Dandridge embodies the spirit of Physical Therapy Month By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer
Curt Habraken/The Mountain Press
Sevierville Primary School students recently finished off Red Ribbon Week with a Go Green / Halloween parade along the school’s nature path.
SEVIERVILLE — Wanda Barnes had just come away with a clean bill of health after her annual physical earlier this year — so it was a complete shock when the Dandridge resident suffered a stroke in March. “My husband told me to get up from bed one morning. I said, ‘OK,’ got up and fell to the floor,” said Barnes, her eyes tearing up at the memory. “I couldn’t walk or use my legs or arms, and I couldn’t speak.” After being treated at Jefferson County Memorial Hospital, she received home therapy. In July, at the recommendation of family members, she came to Fort Sanders Sevier Therapy Center. “They told me they heard this was the best place for a stroke victim to come,” Barnes said. The staff at Fort Sanders Sevier Therapy Center just finished celebrating Physical Therapy Awareness Month. Physical therapists help patients, including accident victims and individuals with disabling conditions such as lower back pain, arthritis, heart disease, fractures, head injuries and cerebral palsy, by providing services that restore function, improve mobility, relieve pain and prevent or limit permanent physical disabilities. According to About.com, physical therapists held about 173,000 jobs in 2006. Employment of physical therapists is expected to grow much faster than the average for all occupations through 2016. Barnes received physical therapy after she was released from speech therapy. Last week, she was finishing her last day of occupational therapy when her

PF Rotary Club wraps up best craft festival ‘in years’ By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer PIGEON FORGE — This year’s craft festival for the Pigeon Forge Rotary Club drew one of the largest crowds in years, organizers said. The 33rd annual festival wrapped up Saturday evening. With dozens of crafters showing off their wares, the tent in the Patriot Park parking area drew good attendance throughout the month, said Rotarian Fred Frische, who helped put the event together. “It was very good,” he said. “It’s not a record year, but it’s probably the best since 2001.” The club didn’t charge admission, but members did ask for donations at the entrance. The vendors also paid to set up at the event. “This is our main money-maker for the year,” Rotarian David Sorge
explained. The money they raise doesn’t go toward administrative costs or other expenses for the club, he explained. All the money will go to local charities and Rotary projects in the community. “They’re not spending as much as last year, but there’s more people,” said Rae Barrier, one of the crafters. “It’s been a good show.” Barrier was selling candles; other crafters had stained glass displays, woodcarvings and additional items for sale. Barry and Nancy Stutts, of Knoxville, said they got some early Christmas shopping done at the festival. “There’s some unique things here I haven’t seen at other craft shows,” Barry Stutts said.

Cobbins moved to max security prison
KNOXVILLE (AP) — Convicted killer Letalvis Cobbins was moved Monday to a maximum-security prison after a state senator and victims’ families complained that a medium-security lockup was insufficient punishment for his role in the slayings of a young Knoxville couple. Cobbins, 26, was convicted in August of first-degree murder in the Knoxville torture death of Channon Christian, 21, and facilitating the murder of her boyfriend Christopher Newsom, 23, in 2007.

SEVIERVILLE — The Sevier County Heritage Museum will have a grand reopening at 4 p.m. Thursday. The museum is located at 167 Bruce St. The building had been closed for several months because of roof problems. “Everyone is invited to come and see the remodeled museum exhibit hall and new exhibits,” said Patsy Bradford, the museum’s director. “The board of the museum is especially thankful for the County Commission’s efforts to preserve this historic building which opened in 1940.” The building was one of the last WPA projects of Franklin Roosevelt’s New Deal. Soon after the county agreed to allow a museum in the building in 1995, the old Sevierville Post Office building was placed on the National Register of Historic Places. The museum was a bicentennial gift to the city of Sevierville, opening July 10, 1995 — 200 years since the establishment of Sevierville as the county seat. The museum features exhibits highlighting some of the county’s history and how people made a living. Included are tributes to veterans of foreign wars and the Civil War. There are also exhibits showcasing education, religion, farming, home life, and the historic Sevier County Courthouse. “We’d also like to thank Sevier County Mayor Larry Waters and Sevier County Assistant Mayor Greg Patterson for their oversight of the remodeling,” said Bradford. The museum will be open every day except Wednesday from noon to 5 p.m. Admission is free. For more information, call 453-4058.

State in top four for free lunches WASHINGTON (AP) — Schools are doing a better job of identifying students who are eligible for free or reduced-price school lunches, but some states are much better than others, the Agriculture Department says in a report to Congress. In 2008-2009, 78 percent of schools identified eligible students by using government records of which households already receive aid like food stamps. Use of the so-called direct certification method, the most efficient way to enroll school children in subsidized lunch programs, was up 11 percentage points from the previous year, according to the report, which is being delivered to Congress on Tuesday. A copy was obtained by The Associated Press. Direct certification helps eliminate the lengthy application process for free meals. Despite the overall improvement, the report shows a wide disparity in performance from state to state. The top four states — Alaska, Delaware, New York and Tennessee — all directly enrolled more than 90 percent of students from households that receive food stamps. The bottom four — the District of Columbia, Idaho, Missouri and New Hampshire — directly enrolled 50 percent or fewer students whose families received food stamps. Agriculture Secretary Tom Vilsack said the report shows areas where states can improve. Kevin Concannon, the USDA’s undersecretary for food, nutrition and con-
sumer services, said the report “will help us share promising lessons from the most successful states.” Schools that lag in efficiently enrolling kids in their lunch programs are disproportionately smaller and rural, the report concludes. The school lunch program provides low-cost or free lunches to 31 million children each school day.

it doesn’t address whether the county should help defray the costs if expenses exceed revenues, city officials said. “Early on, no one was really concerned with this,” Hendrix said. “I think it was understood it wasn’t going to be profitable.” Now, as the contract nears the end of its 15-year term, the county has begun asking the city for figures showing how much money the water system is making. Actually, county officials have said they began asking several years ago. Hendrix said that’s not true. “With this letter, I have heard that the county has requested the information for two to three years,” Hendrix said in correspondence with County Mayor Larry Waters dated Oct. 4.

her physical therapist, Sara Alpert, stopped to say hello. “She is probably the most motivated stroke patient I’ve had in 14 years,” said Alpert, smiling proudly at Barnes. The bond the women have formed is obvious as they both become teary. Barnes worked on balance and strength during her therapy. She started out lifting smaller weights at the beginning, then progressed to heavier weights. “She’s up to about 7.5 pounds now,” Alpert said. “Every time we’d go up she never complained.” When she began therapy, Barnes said it was “just like starting over.” “I couldn’t do anything. I couldn’t lift my leg up at all,” she said. “But I would do whatever they told me to do. I was walking with a cane, but now
“I have also heard when the county was approached during the first several years of the contract, county officials informed the water department not to worry about providing the revenues and expenses.” He said the topic came up with county engineer Gary McGill earlier this year, and McGill said, “He did not believe this was a big deal if we continued communication and progress due to the fact that the county was more interested in moving forward with creating their own water department.” The letter also makes it clear Hendrix’s position is the city has met its obligations. “Based on the documentation presented herein, it is clearly evident that the city has conducted itself and exactly as promised. “I am concerned that the comments provided in the recent Mountain Press article and subsequent correspondences do not accu-
rately reflect city actions. I would appreciate your leadership and efforts to clarify these facts to restore trust and public confidence.” During Monday’s workshop, Hendrix also noted that the figure of $326,436 in revenues discussed at a county meeting represents the gross revenues over the life of the contract so far. Hendrix has hired a CPA to review the figures for the areas where the city provides water to the county. He gave the board two examples so far: In 2005, the city lost $1,000 overall on providing water to the county, and in the just-ended fiscal year it lost $29,000. Those figures, he said, were based on conservative calculations that didn’t take into account the sparse population along the lines, or the distance — both of which increase the cost of maintenance. “They were calculated as though they were right next door to us and there was
still no profit,” he said. The CPA will have the figures ready to return to the county before a Nov. 23 deadline stipulated in the county’s letters to the city, he said. Aldermen hope to meet with county commissioners about the issue once that is done. They are especially concerned, they said, after hearing that the county presented plans for two new water lines that would apparently use city water — one near Creek Bend Cares and another near Holiday Lane. The county is already building a line along Jay-El Road that is expected to use city water. “It’s hard to reconcile that the County has apparently dissatisfaction with the disagreement ... but they want to do more business at the same time,” Alderman Jerry Loveday said.
I’m walking without it. I can dress myself, bathe myself, wash clothes and fix Ed (her husband) and me something to eat.” Barnes, who worked with Alpert and fellow physical therapist Hilary Hunter, will return to Fort Sanders Sevier Therapy Center in two months for a follow-up. “There are plateaus in rehab,” Alpert explained. “Every stroke patient is different. Wanda is a caregiver to her husband (who had suffered two strokes), so there was no choice — she had to do it all. “Family members want to help, which is fantastic — but there has to be the effort of the patient to get better.” Alpert remembers someone mentioning physical therapy as
a possible career to her when she was in the fifth grade. She received her degree from Quinnipiac University in Hamden, Conn., and interned at Baptist Hospital in Knoxville before coming
to Fort Sanders Sevier. “Seeing progress like Wanda’s — seeing people get back as much as they give — is the best part of my job,” she said.

Ford shows profit, reversing troubles Editors: All figures as of: 5:25:07 PM EST
NOTE: Figures reflect market fluctuations after close; may not match other AP content
DEARBORN, Mich. (AP) â€” One of the troubled Detroit Three automakers, Ford, is making money again and looking for better times in no more than two years. Emerging from a threeyear makeover with popular cars and trucks, Ford said Monday it earned nearly $1 billion in the third quarter and will be solidly profitable by 2011, a more optimistic forecast than earlier. While heavy debt and lean times for American car shoppers threaten the comeback, the report puts Ford in a far better position than General Motors or Chrysler, which are still finding their bearings after emerging from bankruptcy. Fordâ€™s cars are winning popular and critical acclaim, like the Fusion midsize sedan and more gas-efficient Focus compact. And years of painful cost-cutting, which have halved its work force, have looked prophetic since the

recession struck, hurting demand. Even in North America, the companyâ€™s biggest market, Ford turned a profit after losing money there for four years. GM and Chrysler, meanwhile, are still trying to cut jobs and win back customers, many of whom are steering toward their healthier rival. Three years ago, Ford was considered in the worst shape of the Detroit Three after posting what was at the time the worst annual loss in its history.
Still terrifying, no matter how many Man-eating lions now thought to have killed 35, not 135 By RANDOLPH E. SCHMID AP Science Writer WASHINGTON â€” The nightly attacks by two man-eating lions terrified railway workers and brought construction to a halt in one of east Africaâ€™s most notorious onslaughts more than a hundred years ago. But the death toll, scientists now say, wasnâ€™t as high as previously thought. Over nine months the two voracious hunters claimed 35 lives â€” no small figure, but much less than some accounts of as many as 135 victims. It was 1898, when laborers from India and local natives building the Uganda Railroad across Kenya became the prey for the pair, a case that has been the subject of numerous accounts and at least three movies. The death toll had been estimated at 28 railway workers and â€œscores of unfortunate African natives,â€? with the total ranging as high as 135. Delay of the railroad was even subject to debate in Britainâ€™s House of Commons. Scientists hoping to figure out the actual number of people eaten decided to study the remains of the two male lions, now on display at the Field Museum of Natural History in Chicago, testing the types of carbon and nitrogen in their teeth and hair. Those chemical ratios were compared with the carbon and nitrogen found in modern lions in the region, in lionsâ€™ normal prey animals and in humans. Bones and teeth store carbon and nitrogen isotopes over long periods, while the ratios in hair change more rapidly, allowing the scientists to determine the long-term diet and how it changed in the lionsâ€™ last months. Humans made up at least half of the diet of
Two world renowned man-eating Tsavo lions are seen stuffed and on display at Chicagoâ€™s Field Museum of Natural History on Monday. Their killing spree in 1898 inspired the 1996 movie â€œThe Ghost and the Darkness.â€? one of the lions in the last months of his life, consuming at least 24 people, they concluded. The other lion had eaten 11 people, they found. In other words, even a century later, you are what you eat. Researchers led by anthropologist Nathaniel J. Dominy and Justin D. Yeakel of the University of California, Santa Cruz, report in Tuesdayâ€™s edition of Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences. They noted that estimates of the death toll reported at the time ranged from 28 reported by the Ugandan Railway Company, to 135, claimed by Lt. Col. John H. Patterson, a British officer who killed the lions in December, 1898. The researchers did note that their study covers only the number of people eaten, while the number killed may have been higher. They said the death toll may have been as high as 75. The killings occurred at a time when drought and disease sharply reduced the number of grazing animals that are the nor-
mal food for the lions, the report added, while at the same time construction of the railway brought an increased number of people into the area. In addition, the researchers said the two lions seem to have cooperated in their hunting efforts. Thatâ€™s not unusual when they are after large prey like buffalo and zebra, but isnâ€™t necessary when after something smaller, like people. However, one of the lions had severe dental problems and a jaw injury, probably limiting his ability to hunt, they reported. So the two may have worked together, with one eating more people and the other concentrating more heavily on other prey, but also eating humans.

Explosives found; soldier arrested CLARKSVILLE (AP) — An Army Special Forces soldier was arrested Monday after a pair of hunters found about 100 pounds of explosives outside his home near Fort Campbell. Maj. April Olsen, a spokeswoman at the sprawling Army post on the Tennessee-Kentucky border, said the unidentified soldier was being held in the county jail. Federal and military officials searched his home outside Clarkesville after the hunters found
the C-4 plastic explosives in a field late Sunday. Ted Denny, spokesman for the Montgomery County sheriff, said they appeared to be military ordnance. Joel Siskovic, a spokesman for the FBI in Tennessee, said the agents from the Joint Terrorism Task Force were called to the scene, but after conducting interviews, they determined there was no connection to domestic or international terrorism. Most C-4 explosives are
used by the military, but there is limited commercial use, such as in demolitions, said Lon Santis, manager of technical services for the Institute of Makers of Explosives, the safety and security association of the commercial explosives industry. Santis said the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives has recordkeeping and identification requirements it can use to track explosives, but those requirements do not apply to military
explosives. Another Fort Campbell soldier was arrested in October and charged with selling four stolen hand grenades and a stolen anti-tank rocket to an undercover officer in Tennessee. Prosecutors said the transaction with Pfc. Joshua Bartlett Etherton, a 101st Airborne Division soldier, was arranged after police in the small town of Paris received a tip, but they would not say who he believed was the buyer.

Political revolution is brewing The Rev. Anthony Evans stepped up to the podium at Stand for Marriage D.C.’s rally with a message for D.C. Council Chairman Vincent Gray: The black church will no longer partner with politicians of any race who work against its interests and its values. From the podium, Rev. Evans spoke about an “extraordinary” meeting that took place when a half-dozen black bishops, representing the heart of the black church, paid a pastoral call on Councilman Gray, who is AfricanAmerican. The 30 minutes allotted stretched into an hour and a half as bishops representing the core Pentecostal denominations explained their concerns about gay marriage. But Gray was adamant in his support for gay marriage. Finally one of the clergy asked, “What about your soul?” “This has nothing to do with my soul,” he snapped. From the podium, Rev. Evans recalled the “astonishing” moment when these religious leaders realized that Gray’s mind was made up, his heart hardened. He wasn’t really listening to their concerns. “He’s not concerned about his soul on this issue,” Rev. Evans said on Sunday. “So let me tell Vincent Gray he will have one less thing to worry about: This will be his last term in office.” The crowd went wild. More than 3,000 people crowded Freedom Plaza, Evans says, to protest the D.C. Council’s attempt to pass gay marriage over the heads of voters. “We have reached a point in our history where we will not accept African-American politicians pushing policies that will hurt the black church,” he told me a few days later. “The black church will not take this anymore.” Major civil rights organizations, long supported by the black church, Rev. Evans says, are now accepting major financial contributions from gay rights interests. “This will be a major issue in 2010. We will not support Democratic candidates that are working against the interests of the black church,” he promised. Evans is not some GOP stalking horse. He is the president of the National Black Church Initiative, whose main mission is reducing disparities in health care across America. Trust me, Rev. Evans is not interested in wedge issues that elect Republicans. He cares about forcing the Democratic Party — and black politicians especially — to pay more attention to the voices and values of its most faithful and numerous base, AfricanAmerican churchgoers. Rev. Evans thus has a lot in common, whether he knows it or not, with the emerging conservative GOP coalition in New York’s 23rd Congressional District that wants to defeat GOP nominee Dede Scozzafava’s bid to become the first pro-gaymarriage Republican in Congress. I write this column as a participant, not a neutral observer: The National Organization for Marriage (of which I am president) has joined with prolife groups like Susan B. Anthony and Citizens United for Life, Gary Bauer’s Campaign for Working Families, and the economic conservative powerhouse Club for Growth, to try to defeat the Scozzafava, and elect a third-party candidate, Conservative Doug Hoffman. Club for Growth’s latest poll shows Hoffman ahead and Dede Scozzafava fading badly under the combined attacks of Hoffman, Sarah Palin and Rush Limbaugh, her own extreme liberal record, not to mention the weird, miserable judgment her campaign showed in calling in police to deal with the reporter from a respectable magazine — The Weekly Standard — who asked too many pointed questions. As Brian Brown, NOM’s executive director, put it: “How can she stand up for the interests of the people of New York’s 23rd in Washington if she can’t even deal with a reporter’s questions without calling in the cops?” Black churchgoers and white churchgoers belong, by and large with many individual exceptions, to different political parties. Each party is now being put on notice: Some issues are far bigger than partisan labels. If you ignore the voices and values of your core constituents, they will ignore you. A political revolution is brewing on both sides of the aisle. How long will it take for the politicians to notice? — Maggie Gallagher, president of the National Organization for Marriage, is known for her conservative social policy analysis of social trends and conditions.

If you’ve ever see the backups along Highway 66 and through the Parkway, you know how frustrating it can be for tourists and locals trying to get somewhere. Anything that can help the cause is welcome and appreciated. The city of Sevierville has added a feature that just may be a boost to the situation. New cameras installed along Highway 66 are designed to let officials monitor traffic and make adjustments without always requiring the presence of a police officer. The cameras provide
a 360-degree view of the busy highway. By watching what the cameras are picking up, officials at the police station can adjust signals and respond to traffic tie-ups more quickly. That means a smoother move through the city for the thousands of visitors who come here every week. These are not red-light cameras, such as the ones throughout Knoxville. Those cameras are designed to capture people speeding or driving through red lights. If you’ve ever opened your mail to find photos of your traffic offense and a ticket for the wrong, you know how effective these camera lights can be. But Sevierville is not looking to do that, and the cameras just installed are not set up to catch speeders or those who run lights. What has been installed are traffic control cameras,
and it’s important to city officials that everyone understands that. With Highway 66 undergoing widening for the next year or so, the city needs whatever tools it can come up with to help people to reach their destinations and not get caught in major traffic jams that only serve to irritate then as they begin their vacation getaway. We want people to be happy as they arrive, during their stay and as they head home. It’s hard to do that considering how difficult it can be to move around this community on its most traveled roads, but the new cameras in Sevierville offer one way to make an adjustment that can improve the flow of cars. Sevierville should be commended for taking this step.

Editor: Recently, Jones Cove Elementary School held its annual Pioneer Day fundraising event. I would like to thank everyone involved in making our Pioneer Day a successful event. Thanks to the generous donations of local businesses and support from our community, we were able to raise $6,850 for our school. A special thank you goes out to the Jones Cove community for their support of our school. We are very fortunate to be a part of such a caring and supportive community. I would also like to thank the Jones Cove Elementary faculty and staff for all of their hard work planning and preparing for the day. A great time was had by all that attended.
Once again, thanks to everyone involved in making our Pioneer Day a success. Shannon Sullivan Principal
Mansfield thanks supporters as he leaves ministry post
Editor: Dear past, present and future friends and all volunteers of Operation Christmas Child gift shoe box ministry in Sevier County: After 10 years of service in OCC Sevier County Ministry, I will be stepping down this year, although I do plan to continue in an advisory capacity at least through 2009. I want to give special heartfelt thanks to all the volunteers for their great support and help over the past years and for the use of the Baptist Center facilities as our Relay Center. They have freely provided their time and energy without hesitation
and with much enthusiasm. Also, I want to thank all the churches in Sevier County who have and will continue to support and pray for the efforts of Operation Christmas Child. Karen Hall, originally from Australia, who became a strong helpmate for our OCC ministry in 2008, has gracefully accepted the challenge/position as OCC Sevier County Coordinator. Karen applied for the job through me, was approved and appointed by our Knoxville Collection Center Coordinators and by our OCC ministry headquarters management in Boone. I am very happy to have this very capable person replace me as I step down after 10 years of rewarding service. Please give your full support and prayers to Karen Hall and her team of volunteers as we all try to help make OCC 2009 the best year ever in Sevier County. Rex Mansfield Sevierville

Coach: G-P must improve execution
Bama-LSU prep for a Top 10 showdown By JOHN ZENOR AP Sports Writer
By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer GATLINBURG — All the TSSAA playoff controversy aside, the Gatlinburg-Pittman Highlanders football team needs to start playing better, with emphasis on the offense, if they want to survive past this Friday’s Round 1 matchup against former Watauga Conference foe Happy Valley Warriors. “Our boys have been gettin’ a little ragged the past two or three ball games,” said 38th-year G-P head football coach, following the 28-14 win over visiting Pigeon Forge last week. “And we need to start executing a little better, especially offensively.” To be fair, the Highlanders (9-1 overall, 5-1 in District 3-AA) have played some pretty tough teams the past few weeks, including Fulton, Austin-East and Knoxville Carter, before this past Friday night’s Hammonds Bowl III against Pigeon Forge. G-P won three-of-four games in that stretch, the lone loss was a 14-7 affair against visiting A-E. G-P held a fourth-quarter 7-6 lead until a Roadrunners returner took a kickoff back 80-plus yards for the winning score, putting the only blemish on the Highlanders record so far this season. “It feels good to be 9-1,” said Hammonds. “Even though I’m not satisfied. “I mean, we were just one play away from being 10-0, and that’s what we were after.” But the Blue and Gold will have to settle for 10-1, and only if they can find a way to beat the tough former district enemy Warriors this coming Friday night. G-P was the unquestioned top team of the Watauga Conference during its existence, but Happy Valley was one of two other programs that tried to challenge the Blue and Gold. The other was Cumberland Gap. But for G-P’s final season in the Watauga in 2008, the underdog Warriors were 24-14 winners during a Week 4 matchup. Not only did Happy Valley win that meeting, it did it at Hammonds Field See HIGHLANDERS, Page A10

Lady Eagles’ floor general signs with Cumberland University Cowan confirms commitment to Bulldogs By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor

Seymour’s Casie Cowan slashes to the basket during a game last season versus South-Doyle.
SEYMOUR — Seymour Lady Eagles standout point guard Casie Cowan confirmed her Oct. 16 commitment to Cumberland University on Friday, as she signed with the Bulldogs in the library of Seymour High School. Cowan, who has shown flashes of brillance over her career at Seymour, made quite a jump up the recruiting charts this summer as she excelled in AAU basketball, averaging nearly 20 points per contest. According to coach Andy Rines, Cowan has developed more of a killer instinct since last season’s team loss in the sectional round to South Greene. Rines also said Cowan’s developed her shot considerably, and is looking more to score. Cowan and her Lady Eagles teammates will tip off the season on Tuesday, Nov. 17, at Heritage. Their first game at home in the 2009 season will be the following Monday, Nov. 23, when the William Blount Lady Govs come to town. email@example.com
TUSCALOOSA, Ala. — Just another game. Or a top-10 showdown that could help set up a one-game playoff with Florida for a shot at the BCS national championship. The next one. Or an ourcoach-is-better-than-yours statement game. Take your pick, even the Alabama players don’t seem quite sure how to treat Saturday’s game between the No. 3 Crimson Tide (8-0, 5-0 Southeastern Conference) and No. 9 LSU that might just be the next best thing to a TideGators championship game. They can downplay it in one breath: “If we were playing the smallest school in the country, it would still be a big game because it’s the next game. That’s just the way this team operates,” Tide quarterback Greg McElroy said Monday. And talk it up the next. “This game is huge. It’s huge for the coaching staff, it’s huge for us, it’s huge for our fan base,” McElroy said. It could wind up being huge in the national title race, too. Alabama coach Nick Saban meets his old team in a game that could send his current one to the SEC championship game. The Tide only has to win to secure a spot. Or LSU (7-1, 4-1) could win and take control of the SEC West. It’s a timely infusion of drama in a league that is threatening to end the regular season without a whole lot of suspense. No. 1 Florida has already walked away with the East. South Carolina and Mississippi fell out of the Top 25 this week, leaving only three SEC teams in the rankings. Sounds like a good time for a big game. The coaches take somewhat different approaches publicly. Saban scolded a reporter who asked whether he’d treat this game any differently. “If you’ve listened to anything I’ve said,” he said, “you would not even ask the question.” LSU’s Les Miles doesn’t shy from discussing the game’s magnitude. “Since I’ve been here, this See SHOWDOWN, Page A10
Tigers’ modest success in ’09 bodes well for the future By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer PIGEON FORGE --- The Pigeon Forge Tigers football program accomplished something this season, and what they accomplished was hope. Although the Tigers fell 28-14 this past Friday night at Gatlinburg-Pittman, Pigeon Forge played with the Highlanders through most of the night, leading early and fighting to keep it a one-possession game until the fourth quarter. If the Tigers had won the 2009 season finale against G-P, Pigeon Forge would have had its first legitimate shot at the postseason in years. But even after the seasonending loss in Hammonds Bowl III, the Tigers still had a glimmer of hope for a playoff berth. That berth, unfortu-
nately, never came for the Tigers, even after early TSSAA playoff announcements were rescinded on Saturday morning and revised and re-posted later that day. The Tigers knew they were longshots for the postseason with a 4-6 mark on the year, but they also realize they are an extremely young team — a team that resembles a junior varsity squad in appearance and age more than a team that plays its games under the Friday night lights. The fact that the Tigers even had a chance for a playoff spot on Saturday says a lot about this young team, which started the season slow and ended with a four-win campaign, including victories in two of its final four contests. “I’m proud of our kids and their season,” said third-year Pigeon Forge
coach Lee Hammonds, who has matched his father Benny Hammonds’ first three campaigns as a head coach with identical 10-20 records. “I’m just proud of these young men, these bunch of young kids we’ve played all year. They’ve gained some valuable experience, and they’ve fought hard all year long. “We’ve got to keep these kids together and understand that this program is headed in the right direction, and that we’re doing the right things. We’ve just got to learn to step it up another level. We’ve done better this season than we thought we might at first. We got better as the season went on, and that’s an advantage to playing a bunch of young guys ... because they have Jason Davis/The Mountain Press the ability to get better as it Pigeon Forge’s future hopes reside with their young players, like freshgoes on.” man QB Kaleb Black (left) and sophomore RB Chase Travis (right), firstname.lastname@example.org tured here.

Kentucky Wildcats attempting to regroup after Mississippi State loss
Hannah Capps and Ryan Murray
LEXINGTON, Ky. (AP) â€” For Kentuckyâ€™s players, the hardest thing to hit the ground in the loss to Mississippi State on Saturday may have been their egos. After Mississippi State running back Anthony Dixon ran 252 yards in the Bulldogsâ€™ 31-24 win over Kentucky, the Wildcats got their worst hit of the night in the form of a reality check. â€œThe loss brought us back down to earth,â€? said receiver Randall Cobb. Many players agreed that they were on a high after consecutive wins at Auburn and against Louisiana-Monroe. Coach Rich Brooks agreed, saying overconfidence caused his team to lose focus. Now he has to find a way to pick the Wildcats back up before things unravel. â€œA week ago people thought we could win out,â€? Brooks said. â€œNow they
donâ€™t think we can even win another game.â€? Saturdayâ€™s game against Eastern Kentucky (5-3) is now more important than ever if the Wildcats hope to salvage their preseason hope of reaching a fourth straight bowl game. â€œThe loss was a shock to reality,â€? said defensive tackle Ricky Lumpkin. â€œNow winning is the only way to stop a snowballing effect. This is a bigger game than Mississippi State because itâ€™ll show what our team is made of.â€? Most of the pressure to regain Kentuckyâ€™s confidence rests on the shoulders of true freshman quarterback Morgan Newton. Against Mississippi State, Newton took the reins of the offense and delivered clutch plays. Still, he made several costly mistakes including a goalline interception that prevented the Wildcats from tying the game.
His team has confidence in his ability to turn things around against the Colonels. â€œHe has a lot of respect from his team,â€? Cobb said. â€œHeâ€™s coming along great. It just takes time for a young quarterback.â€? Cobb himself faced a similar situation when he took the reins at quarterback for a number of games last season as a freshman. â€œI knew then I had to make more big plays than mistakes,â€? Cobb said. â€œI think (Newton) knows that now.â€? Brooks also credited his young quarterback for his poise and passing and said the mistakes he made didnâ€™t necessarily contribute to the outcome. Newton, like the rest of his teammates, will have to forget the loss and move on, Brooks said. â€œItâ€™s a hard thing to go every week and put what happened good or bad
behind you and focus on the task at hand,â€? Brooks said. Against the Colonels, Kentucky (4-4) will likely be without running back Derrick Locke (knee), who leads the SEC in kickoff returns and is fifth in the conference in rushing. Cornerback Trevard Lindley is also doubtful for the game with an ankle injury. Newton, Cobb and running back John Conner all also have minor injuries that will limit them in practice this week, but are expected to be fit against an Eastern Kentucky team looking to cause further havoc on the Wildcatsâ€™ season, Brooks said. â€œI think Eastern Kentucky is definitely dangerous,â€? Brooks said. â€œTheyâ€™re looking forward to coming into Commonwealth Stadium and making their year maybe making their decade. We need to be more focused and ready for that.â€?
