Bolze may be set to plead guilty

KNOXVILLE — It seems the fate of accused Gatlinburg swindler Dennis Bolze may already be sealed, with a hearing scheduled for 11 a.m. Tuesday in U.S. District Court on a plea agreement related to the felony charges facing him. Bolze previously pleaded innocent to the money laundering and

wire fraud charges against him, but his attorney has requested the hearing to allow him to change that plea, according to court documents. Though there were previous Bolze indications Bolze may be looking to strike a deal with the state, the announcement of the court session seems to be

the most concrete evidence yet the man who allegedly stole millions of dollars from his clients may be ready to admit guilt. Details of what a potential plea deal may look like are not yet available, with lawyers typically guarding that information pretty closely until the actual court hearing. During the session, any agreement that has been struck will be presented to the judge who will decide on whether the

terms meet the required punishments for any crimes Bolze does plead guilty to. If there is a deal, it’s likely Bolze won’t be admitting to the felony charges for money laundering and wire fraud he stands accused of. In a filing entered late Thursday, the government prosecutors avowed, as is required by

A new day for county’s past Renovation brings life back to heritage museum By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — After years of enduring a leaking roof, peeling paint and buckled floorboards, the Sevier County Heritage Museum has a newly renovated facility and something of a new lease on life.

It was less than a year ago that the old Sevierville Post Office, one of the last Works Progress Administration projects and a designated historic site, was in such disrepair that county officials actually debated demolishing it. “We had three choices: We could either tear

it down, let it fall down or renovate it,” County Mayor Larry Waters said of the building during a grand reopening of the museum Thursday afternoon. “Fortunately, the County Commission chose to repair the building and we are extremely pleased with it. I think it really looks good and the museum now has a new home that we’re all very proud of.” Patsy Bradford, a volunteer with the Smoky Mountain Historical Society who oversees

the museum, remembers well the days when water regularly poured through the ceiling, even in drought years. Exhibits were moved to dodge the indoor precipitation and tarps had to be set up to capture all the errant rain. “It was terrible,” Bradford said. That was until the museum was told to move out by the beginning of May and work crews set to completing about See Museum, Page A2

Expo experiences growth at Event Center By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — The International Gift Expo in the Smokies was one of the first shows to sign on the with Sevierville Events Center, and has expanded every year since coming — to the point that it is now the largest wholesale resort souvenir and gift show in the United States. The show has been in the area for about 10 years, and it has passed a local show for the title of largest of its class. Susan Mills, a partner with the

show, said it started about 10 yeas ago with 273 booths, and now has 868. The latest show started Friday and runs through Tuesday. IGES was one of the first shows to sign with the Events Center, and the relationship has paid off for both sides, as much of the growth came after the move. “This is one of the first shows we booked,” said Mike Wilds, marketing director for the Events Center. “They actually agreed to come to the Events Center before we started moving the dirt even.” In their first show, in 2007, they

booked the entire building. “They used every square inch,” Wilds said. The next year, they expanded to the outside by adding a 20,000 square foot tent. It grew to 30,000 square feet this year, and they’ve already signed enough exhibitors to expand to 50,000 square feet next year. “I think it’s quite a distinction to have the largest show in the nation,” Wilds said. It also means a lot of money for the area. The city doesn’t collect See Expo, Page A4

PIGEON FORGE — The effort to get a new traffic light on the Parkway near Black Bear Jamboree and the under construction Titanic museum attraction moved forward a bit Wednesday as city leaders agreed to put the matter on the agenda for their meeting Monday. At the same time, though, the group got word another similar petition is likely not going to get a green light from the state. Owners of several attractionsintheMusicRoaddevelopment including Titanic, Black Bear Jamboree and WonderWorks have joined together in the request to get a signal installed at the intersection of Music Road and the Parkway. “Between our three attractions we will be moving 1.5 million people through that area next year,” David Fee told the City Commission during a work session Wednesday. “Titanic is going to change the entire face of that complex. If we open without that traffic light, I think it’s going to be a huge mistake for the city.” The issue of adding a light in the area was first brought up by Titanic owner Jon Joslyn, who did not attend Wednesday’s session. Fee said he could speak on Joslyn’s behalf and said the out-of-town developer understood city leaders to have promised the light when he first proposed his massive new facility. “Jon is making a $27 million investment and he feels there was a promise it would be there for Titanic,” Fee said. “We’re asking that you make it a priority and make it happen. It’s ready for a light.” Beyond Fee’s pleas and Joslyn’s beliefs of a city vow to put up a signal at the intersection, there are other factors working in favor of the request. For instance, both the Parkway and Music Road have multiple turn lanes, a design city leaders have said they believe indicates the intersection needs See Light, Page A2

American Profile introduced today American Profile, a weekly, four-color magazine that celebrates hometown American life, makes its debut in today’s edition of The Mountain Press. American Profile is a heartfelt reminder of what’s good about who we are and the places many of us still call home. It is about places where drive-in movies, county fairs, and simple acts of neighborly kindness are more than fond memories.

They are woven into the fabric of everyday life. It’s about Sunday afternoon picnics, Fourth of July parades where people aren’t ashamed to shed a tear when the flag passes, and about doing what’s right, just because it’s right. American Profile is about this country’s roots, and the people and places that still make America great. Each Saturday you’ll

get your copy free with the newspaper. It is an additional benefit for those who purchase their community newspaper. You’ll still get to read USA Weekend on Sundays. Our readers also have received their first copy of the monthly Relish magazine devoted to all things food. Next Tuesday you’ll get your first edition of Spry, a monthly magazine devoted to health and fitness.

Work to begin on bridge SEVIERVILLE — There will be a temporary lane shift and lane closures Tuesday on the Atchley Bridge on Highway 66 and West Main Street downtown Weather and other conditions permitting, the work will begin at approximately 7 a.m. and continue throughout the day and early evening. If the project is not completed on Tuesday, work will resume on Wednesday. The lane shift and closures will be in effect until the project is completed. The project is being completed by the Sevier County Electric System and involves extensive overhead power line work, requiring a tem-

porary lane shift and closures to protect the safety of motorists and allow for the placement of equipment. The northbound lane on Highway 66 going over the bridge will be shifted to the left, using one of the two current southbound left-turn lanes on the bridge. One northbound travel lane and one southbound left-turn lane will be maintained, as will other southbound lanes. In addition, the eastbound left-turn lane on West Main Street turning onto north Highway 66 will be closed. Motorists should consider using Highway 448/North Parkway, also known as the Ultraflow.

Museum

“I’m glad to see this,� Commissioner Jimmy Temple said as he toured the renovated facility and its new exhibits. “It really turned out good. I could never have imagined it being this nice.� Sevierville resident and Pastor Don Grady agrees the renovation has exceeded expectations. “I was here when this was first opened up,� Grady said. “It’s great. Really great. It’s about time they did it.� The museum will officially open to the public Monday, with volunteers scrambling this weekend to get everything in place. After they do, Waters is hopeful locals will take advantage of the revived opportunity to learn about their heritage. “We’re looking forward to folks in the county coming in and looking at a little bit of our past. I want to encourage our citizens to visit the museum,� Waters said. Bradford agreed, pointing out she has her own motivations for continuing her tireless efforts to preserve the museum’s relics – her new grandson. “He has a place where can learn about his family’s heritage,� Bradford said.

$100,000 worth of work on the aging structure. They installed a new roof and repaired the damaged ceiling, scraped old wall coverings off and put on new coats of paint, hung new lights and even laid down a new wood floor. “It’s wonderful,� Bradford said. “I have to pinch myself every time I come in here to make sure I’m not dreaming. We have this incredible building and all sorts of wonderful new exhibits for people to see.� Arrayed throughout the facility are relics of the county’s past, from a Civil War sniper rifle used by a local man to newspaper clippings that tell of some of the area’s most important happenings. Desks that came out of now-defunct local schools sit next to a massive loom used in weaving. Long-time Commissioner Jimmy Temple serves on the County Commission committee that made the recommendation that the building be saved. He toured the facility just before the renovation began and said he’s amazed at the turn around.

a light. “I think it was built with the intention that there would be a signal there,� Mayor Keith Whaley said. “We’re all going to benefit from the development in that area and having a traffic light there.� Additionally, a recent traffic study of the area shows there are enough vehicles moving through the intersection to warrant a traffic light under state guidelines, engineer Terry Grubb told the commissioners. Given that information, city officials seem to be in agreement they’re ready to move forward at least with the permitting phase of the effort, in which an application will be submitted to the state asking permission for a light to installed there. Since the Parkway is a state route, officials in Nashville must approve any new signalization along its length. “If people come to Pigeon Forge and they see they

law, that they have given their “‘best efforts� to see the victims of the criminal offenses alleged in the indictment have been notified of, and afforded the rights described in (the law).� The filing, which is a standard boilerplate document, doesn’t say much new, though it reveals that the federal investigation into Bolze’s alleged

can’t get in a place, if it’s they’re first time they’re probably not going to come back,� Vice Mayor Kevin McClure said. Pointing out the intersection may become dangerous with all those cars moving in and out of Music Road, Commissioner David Wear suggested the group put proceeding with the permitting phase on the agenda for its regular meeting Monday evening. The next step in the process may be a bit of a stumbling block, though, with the project expected to cost as much as $200,000. City coffers have run fairly dry in the recession, but Joslyn has offered to foot the bill for the work. Another request for a signal didn’t get the same nod, though. During the commission’s last monthly meeting, two people who own businesses on the Parkway came before the board asking that it consider putting a traffic light up at the intersection of Appalachia and Plaza drives. Those two secondary

roads aren’t likely to ring many bells, given that neither is very long and they don’t serve heavilydeveloped areas. However, a light at that intersection could provide considerable benefits to businesses along the Parkway, which struggle with attracting customers who must fight their way through a nearly unbroken flow of traffic through the area to get into and out of their parking lots, the business owners said. Additionally, those folks argued Country Tonite theater might be able to tie on to Plaza Drive, allowing its traffic to exit at the signal and relieving the need for the Police Department to station an officer to direct traffic out of the attraction and onto the Parkway on show nights. While City Commission members agreed Wednesday the congestion in that area does make it difficult for motorists to access the businesses, it seems likely cost and the low volume of cars that use the two side streets will

doom the project. “There was a Canon & Canon study done there and they concluded there isn’t enough traffic to warrant a signal there,� Grubb told the group. “But that is a long distance without any signals to slow the traffic for the businesses in that area.� There may be ways to convince the state to permit the light, though engineers believe there must be turn lanes constructed on each of the secondary roads to limit the amount of time the light is red on the Parkway, Grubb said. That work could easily cost $500,000 and that wouldn’t even include the traffic light. “We feel strongly if these side streets get a signal, the turn lanes really need to go in before the lights or it’s going to have a drastic effect on the Parkway,� Grubb said. Given those factors, the group opted not to move forward with discussions of that proposal.

Ponzi scheme revealed a total of 116 victims. Bolze is believed to have taken more than $20 million from them over several years of running two investment firms out of his Campbell Lead Road home in Gatlinburg. According to the indictment against him, which was filed in March, Bolze was taking money from new investors he recruited to make payments to existing clients, all the time showing a consistent profit of around 10 percent even

in down years. He kept part of all the money he received to finance a lavish lifestyle that involved a palatial mountainside estate and large parties, the court filings state. The problem arose when he stopped making payments to his investors and his checks started bouncing. That’s when, with the economy collapsing late last year, folks started demanding all their money back and Bolze couldn’t pay up. He fled town in mid-Decem-

ber and was arrested in Pennsylvania in March. While Tuesday may bring the end of the criminal proceedings against Bolze, it seems likely civil and bankruptcy actions related to his case will continue for some time. The court has yet to decide who will get the proceeds from the sale of Bolze’s home, which sits as he left it with a three-story Christmas tree still standing in the front window.

Unemployment shoots past 10 percent mark WASHINGTON (AP) — Just when it was beginning to look a little better, the economy relapsed Friday with a return to double-digit unemployment for only the second time since World War II and warnings that next year will be even worse than previously thought. The jobless rate rocketed to 10.2 percent in October, the highest since early 1983, dealing a psychological blow to Americans as they prepare holiday shopping lists. It was another worse-thanexpected report casting a shadow over the struggling recovery. President Barack Obama called it “a sobering number that underscores the economic challenges that lie

ahead.� He signed a measure to extend unemployment benefits and to expand a tax credit for homebuyers. Economists had not expected the 10 percent mark to come so quickly and immediately darkened their forecasts. Mark Zandi, chief economist at Moody’s Economy.com, and Joshua Shapiro, chief U.S. economist at MFR Inc., predicted the rate will peak at 11 percent by mid-2010. They earlier had projected 10.5 percent. Unemployment at 11 percent would be a post-World War II record. Only once since then has joblessness hit double digits in the U.S. — from September 1982 to July 1983, at 10.8 percent. Curt Habraken/The Mountain Press

Hasan said methodical goodbyes FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As if going off to war, Maj. Nidal Malik Hasan cleaned out his apartment, gave leftover frozen broccoli to one neighbor and called another to thank him for his friendship â&#x20AC;&#x201D; common courtesies and routines of the departing soldier. Instead, authorities say, he went on the killing spree that left 13 people at Fort Hood, Texas, dead. Investigators examined Hasanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s computer, his home and his garbage Friday to learn what motivated the suspect, who lay in a coma, shot four times in the frantic bloodletting that also wounded 30. Hospital officials said some of the wounded had extremely serious injuries and might not survive. The 39-year-old Army psychiatrist emerged as a study in contradictions: a polite man who stewed with discontent, a counselor who needed to be counseled himself, a professional healer now suspected of cutting down the fellow soldiers he was sworn to help. Relatives said he felt harassed because of his Muslim faith but did not embrace extremism. Others were not so sure. A recent classmate said Hasan once gave a jarring presentation to students in which he argued the war on terrorism was a war against

Islam, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;made himself a lightning rod for thingsâ&#x20AC;? when he felt his religious beliefs were challenged. Investigators were trying to piece together how and why Hasan allegedly gunned down his comrades in one of the worst mass shootings ever on an American military base. The rampage unfolded at a center where

some 300 unarmed soldiers were lined up for vaccines and eye tests. Soldiers reported that the gunman shouted â&#x20AC;&#x153;Allahu Akbar!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; an Arabic phrase for â&#x20AC;&#x153;God is great!â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; before opening fire Thursday, said Lt. Gen. Robert Cone, the base commander. He said officials had not confirmed Hasan made the comment.

Moisture doesn’t dampen fire threat By RANDALL DICKERSON Associated Press Writer NASHVILLE (AP) — With the drought conditions of the past couple of years washed away by above average rainfall this summer and autumn, the wildfire season has begun in Tennessee. Forestry officials say there’s no such thing as a safe fire season. The state Division of Forestry said if there is a fresh fall of dry leaves then a few days of sunshine, some wind and low humidity can turn them into terrific fuel.

Seymour veterans program set today

Seymour High School will host the final staging of its 16th annual Veterans Day program at 7 p.m. today. Admission is free. Refreshments will be served to the veterans in the library following each program.

East Tennessee, where firefighting is a difficult and demanding job. The division said firefighters battle more than 2,500 wildfires each year. National Weather Service records show year to date rainfall measured Thursday was 4.73 inches above the 30-year norm at the Tri-Cities, plus 10.48 inches at Knoxville and 5.88 inches more than usual at Chattanooga. The southeastern corner of Tennessee has been especially wet, with rainfall since Sept. 1 totaling an astonishing 19.41 inches at Chattanooga. “Compared with the past couple of years where we’ve had drought, the

grounds are pretty much saturated (with moisture),” said Division of Forestry information and education specialist Tim Phelps. He cautioned, however, “Fine fuel is falling now from the trees and it can dry out in a matter of hours. Those fine fuels are easy to ignite.” The National Park Service took advantage of damp ground and dry grass to do controlled burns in Cades Cove at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park this week. “It’s a pretty good time to burn it,” said Bob Miller, a park spokesman, who said the burns are a vegetation management tool to keep the forest from overtaking open fields in the mountain valley.

NEW YORK (AP) — Rihanna on Friday described the horror she felt as her ex-boyfriend Chris Brown was biting and punching her during a violent argument in February, saying she saw “no soul in his Rihanna eyes.” “There was no person when I looked at him,” the 21-year-old singer recalled during the second installment of an interview airing on ABC’s “Good Morning America.” “He had no soul in his eyes. Just blank.” Brown was arrested Feb. 8, hours after he was accused of beating Rihanna after the two argued over another woman. He later pleaded guilty to felony assault. In the interview, Rihanna, who is no longer with Brown, described him as “definitely my first big love.” She said their relationship was intense.

Three Cheers Report Card shows local schools making the grade

White House visitor list is revealing The day before Halloween, the White House released a partial list of visitors since Jan. 20 of this year. The list is fascinating and highlights exactly what kind of house the Obamas are running. Topping the visitor chart is Andy Stern, president of the far-left Service Employees International Union. Stern has been received by the Obamas 22 times. Wow. He must be quite a guy. In fact, shouldn’t he be getting frequent stayer points like they give in hotels? Kim Gandy, president of the National Organization for Women, clocks in with 14 visits. This has to be a Michelle Obama play. I know the president is a sensitive guy, but hanging around with Gandy that much is incomprehensible unless she plays basketball, which I believe she does not. John Podesta has visited 17 times. He used to advise Bill Clinton and now runs some wacky far-left organization that specializes in vile personal attacks against conservative Americans. Podesta is one mean motor scooter. I hope he’s not scaring the Obama kids. Showing up for six visits while keeping hope alive was Jesse Jackson. I’m not sure what the reverend is offering the Obamas, but they seem to like him more than Al Sharpton, who’s visited the White House twice. The late Sen. Ted Kennedy chalked up seven visits. You have to assume they were about health care. The liberal lion was a prime backer of Obamacare, which is shaping up to be an absolute disaster. General Electric CEO Jeffrey Immelt was chauffeured to the White House five times. As you may know, NBC News, owned by GE, has been extremely generous to Obama, and now GE is hot on the trail of government contracts for environmental work. This has the appearance of a quid pro quo, and NBC News has one of the best investigative reporters in business: Lisa Myers. I hope she looks into it. Radical-left financier George Soros showed up to see the Obamas four times. This is a tough one to figure out. Word on the street is that Soros has been shorting the U.S. dollar, which is not a good thing for the economy. Soros is a slippery guy who once nearly ruined the British pound and was convicted of a felony in France. But, hey, those incidents could make for some great storytelling, and perhaps that’s why Soros is a repeat visitor. Al Gore must miss the White House. He’s been back four times courtesy of the Obamas. I understand why Al was a guest. Here’s a guy who has made a reported $100 million from global warming projects and investments. Certainly the Obama administration, which is running up deficits in the trillions, could use a little savvy financial advice. So you go, Al. Finally, Oprah has visited the Obamas twice. This is nice. Oprah is basically responsible for Obama’s fame, and now she is being warmly received. I like this. I like loyalty to friends. By the way, your humble correspondent has not been invited to the White House — yet. But I am thinking about shorting the U.S. dollar, so anything could happen. — 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? Distributed by Creators Syndicate. (C)2009 Bill O’Reilly.

Sevier County Director of Schools Jack Parton is quick to point out that the Tennessee Department of Education’s annual Report Card “reflect only a snapshot” of student performance on one particular date. And Commissioner of Education Timothy Webb says that because of how the scores were calculated this year, they cannot be compared to those from years past. Yet is still commendable that the Sevier County School System was declared to be in “Good Standing” in the report issued on Tuesday. It certainly beats the alternatives. The report card is organized into several diverse sections and Sevier County apparently scored relatively well in all of them. Among the highlights: Sevier County received an exemplary score (A) in both the elementary and high school in writing, and received an above average (B) in grades 3-8 in mathematics, reading/ language arts, science and social studies. More info on the Report Card: www.tennessee.gov/education/reportcard/index. Good to see our schools are making the grade.

Local students deserve salute Leaders’ legacies live on through John Sevier Awards for their salutes to veterans

Here’s a salute to young people around the county who are giving a salute. In what has become an annual rite, students at Sevier County, Seymour, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg-Pittman high schools are paying tribute to veterans with programs that began Thursday and will run through Tuesday in advance of Veterans Day. Sevier County High School is in its 17th year of holding such a program, titled this year, “What Are We Fighting For?” Members of the choir, band, cheerleaders, dance team and drama department, as well as teachers and faculty participate. There are three shows, and rarely is there an empty seat. Seymour has four shows and more than 100 students participating. Its show features singing, dramatic interpretations, speeches and a PowerPoint presentation. At Pigeon Forge High, the band, dance team, chorus and middle school chorus will be involved Tuesday in two shows, that will also feature a “miltary funeral,” and GPHS will have two speakers and patriotic music Tuesday. Salute!

Five men whose lived their lives in an exemplary fashion and left their mark on Sevierville, will live on in the city’s memory after they were honored posthumously with John Sevier Awards in a ceremony Wednesday afternoon at the visitor center. Honored during the second annual ceremony were Harold Atchley, William (Bill) Atchley, Grant Cantwell, R.B. “Pete” Hailey and Dwight Wade Sr. Each had been recognized for their service at the recent Sevierville Chamber of Commerce annual banquet, and they were enshrined by having a tree dedicated in their name at the visitor center. “These are people who have deep roots in our community and have helped our city grow,” Chamber Chief Executive Officer Brenda McCroskey said. “These trees are living, growing reminders of their contributions to Sevierville and we think it’s a fitting way to help remember their contributions.” The contributions of these men are too long to list. Suffice to say, the tree dedications are altogether fitting.

PREP FOOTBALL

Highlanders scalp the Warriors, move on G-P stretches out a 17-7 win over Happy Valley By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer GATLINBURG — It looked like a shootout early, but in the end defenses ruled. Gatlinburg-Pittman hosted former Watauga Conference rival Happy Valley Warriors for Friday night’s TSSAA first-round playoff battle, and the Highlanders stretched out a 17-7 win in a defensive struggle. G-P’s bright spot offensively was sophomore RB Terry Phillips, who led the Highlanders with 51 hardfought rushing yards on seven attempts with two TDs. Phillips saw more touches than usual in Friday’s playoff contest, because starting junior RB Dillon Reagan suffered a mild ankle sprain during Wednesday’s practice and was limited in game action. “Dillon wasn’t quite himself tonight,” said G-P coach Benny Hammonds, following the 10-point win. “But Terry picked up the slack for us.” Phillips proved to be capable early, breaking a 12-yard Cobey Hitchcock/The Mountain Press TD run on the game’s open- G-P sophomore running back Terry Phillips (42) was awarded a touchdown on this 12-yard first-quarter run against the visiting Happy Valley Warriors in Friday night’s TSSAA first-round playoff game at Hammonds Field. Phillips scored the lone G-P touchdowns of the night, his second coming on a 29-yard run early in the fourth quarter. The Highlanders won 17-7. See SCALPED, Page A9 PREP FOOTBALL

Bears lose heartbreaker 35-34 Sevier County’s season over as 2-point try comes up 1 yard short By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — It all came down to one play Friday night for the Smoky Bears in their first round playoff game against visiting Bearden. With 1:11 remaining on the fourth quarter clock, SCHS quarterback Zach Flynn hit receiver Jeremiah Foster for an 11-yard touchdown to bring the Bears to

within one point 35-34. With a decision to go for the tie or the win on coach Steve Brewer’s shoulders, the 18th-year coach chose to go for the win with a two-point conversion. Unfortunately for those in Purple (10-1), the try came up one yard short, and the Bulldogs (9-2) would hold on for the 35-34 win, ending the Bears’ season in heartbreaking fashion. “I thought the play was

good, I though we executed it good,” head coach Steve Brewer said of the sideline pass to Kel McCarter that came up just feet short. “I thought we lost our footing a little bit trying to get turned toward the goal line. In the playoffs you’re playing quality teams. It just comes down to a yard. I think if I had it to do over again, I’d probably try it again. “I thought we had the

momentum, and I thought if we could have gotten the two points our defense would have risen to the occasion.” The defense had done just that for the last quarter, after Bearden surged to a 35-21 lead to start the final 12 minutes. Holding Bearden scoreless on two straight possessions gave the Purple See Smoky BEARS, Page A9

BRISTOL — The Tennessee High Vikings defense was in true form Friday night at the Stone Castle, as they sparked a win over the Seymour Eagles 37-7 in a first-round 5A playoff victory. “As a defense, any time that we can help out our offense by going out there and setting up some good field position for them … that’s just a good thing to do,” said Tennessee High safety John Ellis Davis, who secured two of the Vikings’ five picks before leaving due to injury during his TD return. “It feels great.” The Viking team has been breaking records left and right this campaign, and the THS squad shattered two more defensive jewels against the Eagles (4-7). Not only did Davis set the school’s single-season interception mark in the win, but the Vikings also moved past the 2004 squad’s single-season team interception total as well. “We’re setting a lot of records this year,” said THS coach Greg Stubbs, who received a game-high 90 rushing yards from Keenan Shepard. With the Tennessee High offense sputtering at times, the defensive unit put the clamps on any form of a Seymour upset with furious pressure aimed at quarterback Dustin Fain. Fain, who completed just 6-of-20 with three interceptions, had to throw off his

back foot on two separate THS stunts up the middle, resulting in marked returns from both Davis and Carlos Howard. “When our defensive line puts so much pressure on their quarterback, it gives us so much time to read the routes,” Howard said. “And when they throw it up in the air, we’re going to undercut it and catch the ball.” That left the THS offense a short field on numerous occasions, as the hosts turned four Eagle miscues into 21 first-half points. Seymour — which held THS (11-0) to a three-andout on its initial series — muffed a punt that eventually turned into a score, while later sending a high snap into the end zone for an uncontested safety. “We just shot ourselves in the foot too many times,” admitted Seymour coach Jim Moore, who got a late 48-yard TD run from running back Blake Overton (eight carries, 70 yards) to end the shutout. “You can’t do that against a good team — especially as good as they are. They didn’t do anything we weren’t expecting, but we didn’t expect to have six turnovers.” Adding to that fray was an interception return and score from T.J. Simmons late in the third, whose 21-yard pick and scoot down the right hash against Fain’s intended out pattern gave the Vikings a commanding 30-0 advantage. mpsports@themountainpress.com

ing possession with 10:38 in the first quarter. Phillipsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; play was the capper for the 60-yard openingdrive TD march, highlighted by a 16-yard Reagan run on the first play from scrimmage and a 19-yard aerial hookup between junior QB Tye Marshall and junior WR Jeremy Hibbard. Sophomore kicker Brandon Merrittâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s PAT kick made it 7-0 G-P. G-P looked crisp and in control of all momentum ... for a few seconds. But that Blue-and-Gold momentum was extinguished like a wet flame on the ensuing kickoff, which was returned 85 yards to paydirt by Warriors junior Coty Cooper with 10:19 in the first. But some yellow laundry littered the field for a Happy Valley block in the back, wiping the 6 off the scoreboard and moving the ball back to the G-P 20. The Warriors came away from that possession with no points after sophomore D.J. Ball scooped up a Warrior fumble and returned it 39 yards, but the battle was on ... not on the

offense a chance to catch up, and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s exactly what they did, as Flynn led the Smoky Bears on two quick touchdown drives to give the team the shot at the win. The first was an 8-play, 61-yard drive, highlighted by two first down passes to Whaley, which set up a 1-yard TD plunge from running back Dakota Cogdill with 4:14 remaining on the clock. A huge stand by the Sevier County defense, which saw Issac McMahan and Jake Reppert bottle up lightingquick Bulldog back Devrin Young, forced the visitors to punt back to SCHS with 2:20 left. Again Flynn masterfully led the team downfield, hitting Bryant Gilson with a big first down strike to set up the Foster TD from 11 yards out. Following the failed twopoint try the Bears tied an onside kick, but Bearden recovered. A 43-yard scamper by Young put the Bulldogs deep in Sevier County territory and from there they were able to milk the clock out for the win. In the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s early going, Sevier County looked like they had an opportunity to put some space between themselves and the Bulldogs. Using their patented chip-style kickoff, the Bears caught Bearden off-guard in the gameâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening seconds as Josh Johnson recovered the kick for the Smoky Bears. Four plays later Flynn found Kel McCarter for a 23-yard TD strike to give SCHS the initial lead. Freshman Jared Baxterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s kick made the score 7-0. Not to be outdone, the Bulldogs took their opening possession 65 yards on seven plays, balancing Youngâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running and quarterback Kyle Riemerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s passing, before Young ran it in from six yards out to knot the score at 7-7 following the extra point. Sevier County ended a 70-yard drive deep into Bearden territory with a interception at the Bulldog

Nick Campbell cut the G-P edge in half when he connected with senior WR Jake Hodge for a three-yard TD with 5:36 in the fourth. Warriors junior kicker Zack Phillips banked the PAT kick off the right upright and in, cutting the G-P edge to 14-7. Merritt made it the final with a late 29-yard field goal, once again making it a twopossession contest. Happy Valley threatened to score late, but senior DB Pierce McCarter picked Campbell off at the G-P 11 and returned it 21 yards to the Warrior 32 with 1:29 remaining, allowing the Highlander offense to ice the game with some clock killers. Next up is the Rocky versus Apollo rematch when G-P Cobey Hitchcock/The Mountain Press travels to Austin-East next G-P junior wide receiver Jeremy Hibbard (4) bowls over a Happy Valley Friday night. A-E defeated Johnson County 32-15 in its defender on this first-half play Friday night at Hammonds Field. first-round contest. G-P held a fourth-quarter 7-6 edge over A-E during a TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS FOOTBALL muddy regular season contest at Hammonds Field, but an 85-yard A-E kickoff return ruined the Blue and Goldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bid for a perfect 10-0 regular season. chitchcock@themountainpress.com

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was proud of our players, we got down in a hole with eight minutes to go. We came back and had two scores, and that shows they never quit. We lost to a good Bearden football team.â&#x20AC;? Steve Brewer, SCHS head coach

3-yard line on their next possession, but they were able to score on their next drive. The Bears went up 14-7 following an 11-play 85-yard drive that saw Flynn Find Whaley, Foster and Gilson all for first downs before Cogdill scored from threeyards out on a run around right end. The Smoky Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense stepped up on Beardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s next possession, holding the Bulldogs to a 3-and-out. But luck was on the Bulldogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; side, and after a Cisco Carter punt sailed 45 yards to Sevier Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Danny Chastain, the returner collided with a Smoky Bear blocker and fumbled, giving the ball back to Bearden at the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 28. One play later Young was in the end zone following an ankle-breaking run through the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense, tying the score at 14-14. The Purple and White would get some luck of their own, however, later in the second quarter, as Beardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Riemer fumbled at his teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 19, where it was recovered by SCHSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Brandon Tinker. The Bears capitalized, taking just three plays to go the 19 yards for the score, as Kel MCarter found paydirt on a 1-yard rush to tie put Sevier County back on top 21-14. The lead was short-lived, though, as Bearden immediately answered. Taking the ball 70 yards on eight plays, the Bulldogs tied the score at 21-21 just before halftime with a 37-yard pass from Riemer to Max Guthe. In the early going of the second half, things continued to go Beardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s way. The Bulldog defense stopped the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first three possessions of the second half, while their offense scored two unanswered touchdowns to build a 35-21 lead. The first downdown

was scored by Riemer on a 1-yard QB keeper following a 45-yard run from Young. The Bulldogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; second TD of the half came on a 3-yard run from Young that capped a 68-yard drive. From there, Sevier Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense clamped down, and things started clicking on offense for the Bears. But it just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t enough. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was proud of our players, we got down in a hole with eight minutes to go,â&#x20AC;? Brewer said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We came back and had two scores, and that shows they never quit. We lost to a good Bearden football team. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m proud of my players for what they accomplished this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Beardenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got some very explosive people. I thought their quarterback threw the ball well tonight, but I thought defensively we really stepped up from about the middle of the third quarter on, and then offensively we really stepped up there in the fourth quarter and just came up a yard short.â&#x20AC;? SCHSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Flynn ended the game with 325 yards passing and two touchdowns. His leading receivers were Gilson (eight catches, 107 yards), Whaley (seven catches, 125 yards) and Foster (six catches, 67 yards and a score). Dakota Cogdill led the Bears rushing attack with 43 yards and two touchdowns. Devrin Young, while not as effective against the Bears as he was last year, was the Bulldogsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; main offensive weapon. He rushed for 136 net yards and three touchdowns in the game. Bearden advances to play Farragut in the playoffsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; second round. The Admirals topped Ooltewah 24-7 in their first-round game. mpsports@themountainpress.com

Against Tennessee, Memphis Tigers usually come to play By BETH RUCKER Associated Press Writer KNOXVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tennessee coach Lane Kiffin went through the record books to get familiar with the Memphis series. What he saw were a bunch of close games in the interstate rivalry, including a big Tigers win over a Volunteers team led by Peyton Manning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We know theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to come to play, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d imagine (this is) their biggest game of the season for them with a bunch of Tennessee kids on their roster,â&#x20AC;? Kiffin said. For a Memphis team thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s struggled all season, any win would be big. A win over Tennessee? That would probably get the Tigers (2-6) over their hump. Memphis has won only once in the series â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the victory over the Manning-led sixth-ranked Vols in 1996 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but have never taken a game in Knoxville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a game that we can just go lay it on the line since nobody expects us to win,â&#x20AC;? Tigers coach Tommy West said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It would be huge to go up there and win. I have to get our team better, and I think that is the most important thing right now.â&#x20AC;? Not much has gone right for the Tigers this season. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been riddled with injuries, including sophomore quarterback Tyler Bassâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s torn labrum that required season-ending surgery. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve struggled with turnovers and the rushing game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; both running the ball on offense and stopping the run on defense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have been a head coach 15 years and I have never had a year quite like this,â&#x20AC;? West said. Memphis has one major weapon that the Vols (4-4) canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t compete with. The receiver tandem of 6-foot-4 Duke Calhoun and 6-foot-9 Carlos Singleton have combined for 41 touchdowns this season. Calhoun notched a three-game streak of 100+ yards receiving in the middle of the season, including a season-high 174 yards

against Tennessee-Martin. Singleton had a season-high 105 yards against Texas-El Paso. They also havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t seen a defense quite as good as Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The Vols rank 13th in defense in the nation, with pass defense as their strength. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you go up for the ball make sure you come down with it and they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the biggest thing,â&#x20AC;? Tennessee safety Eric Berry said. Tennessee hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t faced a defense that has struggled as much as Memphis since their 63-7 rout of Western Kentucky in the opening game of the season. The Tigers rank 100th in the nation in giving up an average 416.5 yards and 30.4 points per game. On paper, it should be a homecoming Vols blowout like their last meeting with Memphis in 2006, a 41-7 win by Tennessee. But there are enough games in the past 10 years with a margin of victory of less than 10 points for Kiffin to know better. To keep the Vols from facing an emotional letdown after a month that included games against Auburn, Georgia, Alabama and South Carolina, Kiffin opened up a number of positions this week to competition. Cory Sullins and Vladimir Richard are competing for the left offensive guard spot; Ben Martin and Gerald Williams have been rotating at defensive end

and Prentiss Wagner and Darren Miles appear to be in contention for replacing safety Janzen Jackson, who may be suspended against Memphis. Tennessee also is replacing its second middle linebacker this season after Savion Frazier tore a knee ligament last week against South Carolina, requiring season-ending surgery. Herman Lathers and Nigel Mitchell-Thornton are expected to split time at the position. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You create so much competition on your field, and you keep that competition open all the time â&#x20AC;&#x201D; thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s how you become really good in November because youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re bringing your guys along, and they understand you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t sit around,â&#x20AC;?

Child worried about ill father’s controlling wife

Dear Annie: My parents divorced 18 years ago, and Dad has had numerous partners and wives since. Three months ago, Dad found out he had stage-four colon cancer. Two weeks after his diagnosis, he married “Sue.” Here’s the problem: Before he was sick, Dad didn’t get along that well with Sue. They argued a lot, and my sisters and I thought he’d eventually break it off. Still, we were all polite to her and invited her to family gatherings. As soon as they married, Sue started pushing us away. Her family members had confrontations with my sisters at the hospital, telling us we were butting in too much. Dad recently came home. We are determined to do whatever we can to help and be with him until his final day. We used to come over to take out the garbage and mow the lawn, but now Sue has hired people and says we don’t need to come by anymore. When we told Dad how upset we were, he said he is too sick to argue with Sue and she can do whatever she wants. Dad just had a birthday. We gave him a puppy since he told us in the hospital that he wanted one to sit with him through chemo. Sue got rid of it. We think she is emotionally abusive to him. I know he’s terribly depressed because he keeps asking for his gun back. We don’t want to create problems. We just want to be part of Dad’s life before we lose him. Any ideas? — Confused in Michigan Dear Confused: This type of situation is sad but not uncommon. Sue

needs to control everything in your father’s environment in order to cement her position as his wife. She fears you may influence him in a way that does not benefit her. If you think she is truly abusive, call the authorities. Otherwise, do your best to give Sue the control and respect she thinks she deserves in order to find a way to see your father and offer him some comfort. Dear Annie: My 16-year-old sister has aplastic anemia, a rare bone marrow disorder. She survives off weekly platelet and red blood cell transfusions. She was hoping to get a bone marrow transplant as soon as we could find a match, but none of her potential matches has panned out. My lovely and amazing sister can only live off these transfusions for another two years, and then that’s that. Please let your readers know they could save a life by donating bone marrow. All you have to do is have your mouth swabbed to be put into the system. If more people would do this, maybe we could find someone who is a good match for my sister. I would do anything to save her life, but I need help. — Carrie Dear Carrie: You are a loving sister, and we hope a match will become available. Those who are willing to participate in this lifesaving procedure

Dear Annie: I was angered by your answer to “Confused Mom in Omaha,” whose husband told his boss their infant daughter had died so he could collect money. You asked, “In spite of his greed, is Alex otherwise a good father?” Are you kidding? Yes, a child should have a father involved in her life, but only if he is a good, stable person. This father obviously is not. You should retract your advice, apologize and suggest “Confused” consult an attorney. — Angered in Tallahassee Dear Angered: We understand, but disagree. Dad did not try to hurt his daughter. He was simply pulling a con job. And while that may not make him a very good person, it doesn’t mean he doesn’t love his daughter, and we don’t believe he should be prevented from having supervised visits. For HER sake, not his.
