Hamilton County readies STEM school plan
By Mike Pare
Staff Writer
Hamilton County is making plans to move ahead
with a high school focused
on science, technology, engineering and math (STEM)
this fall at Chattanooga State
Community College.
Officials said Monday
they expect an announcement from Gov. Bill Haslam
next week about a $1.85 million grant for the proposed
new STEM school.
“We believe we’ve been
successful in that. We’ll
hear how strong our proposal was,” County Schools
Superintendent Rick Smith
said, speaking to the board
of the city’s Enterprise Center, which pushes high-tech
economic development in
the area.
Kelli Gauthier, the Tennessee Department of Education’s communications director, declined to comment on
whether the county would
get the grant.
Smith said he’s hopeful
of starting work as early as
next week to ready 17,000
square feet at Chattanooga
State. About $750,000 from
business and industry will
finance the build-out of
vacant space that’s next to
the new Wacker Institute,
according to plans.
The site is in a former
Olan Mills building that sits
next to the main Chattanooga State campus and was
purchased by the school in
2010.

Happy birthday, East
Ridge city employees.
Thanks to a unanimous
vote from East Ridge City
Council last week, the city’s
117 employees can add their
birthdays to the list of paid
holidays.
The new holiday brings
the city’s off-day count to
11 — an average of almost
one per month, making East
Ridge the city government
with the highest number of
paid holidays in Hamilton
County. The other municipalities in the county offer
six to 10 paid holidays; Hamilton County employees line
up with East Ridge with 11
paid days.
The bonus comes in
the same budget year that
employees were given a 3
percent pay raise.
“I feel like the employees
deserve it,” said Councilman
Denny Manning, who originally asked the five-member
council if it would consider
adding both Veterans Day
and Presidents Day as paid

for our employees, we’re
going to lose them.”
Mayor Brent Lambert
agreed.
“I think we have been
generous, yes. ... I feel like
there’s a good reason for
that. In order to get the best
out of folks, you’ve got to
reward them. Our people
do more with less than most
cities of our size,” he said.
The councilmen voted
for the measure on both first
and second readings during
the last two meetings with
no opposition. None of the
councilmen reached Monday said they were lobbied
by staff members for an
extra holiday.
But all said that giving
birthdays off was a wiser
personnel move than adding

Littlefield has seen his share of criticism
on the Internet. Years ago, a Twitter feed

posts contain one-liners such as “Drafting

I’m in office” and “Not here to break Ron/
But just to shake Ron/My name is Fake Ron/
I got my game on ... yeah.”

ust a few years ago, Chattanooga
City Council meetings were sparsely
attended affairs with local newspaper reporters regularly in the gallery,
while website reporters and television news crews made appearances during
the biggest events.
But now with smartphones, wireless
Internet and the ability to connect almost
instantly with anyone anywhere, the citizen
reporter has emerged as a contributor to
government and political happenings.
Every week at City Council meetings, a
group of these reporters monitors the proceedings and posts to Twitter, Facebook
and personal blogs. They take pictures and
video on camera phones, then post them to
the Internet.
As a result, public officials in Chattanooga are under more immediate scrutiny.
Chris Brooks, an organizer for the advocacy group Chattanooga Organized for Action
who regularly Tweets at council meetings,
said he and others are making Chattanooga
“more democratic.”
Yet others say the atmosphere is becoming more toxic with citizen reporters voicing opinions and operating with a specific
— rather than unbiased — point of view and
without the ethical guidelines associated
with traditional journalism.
Chattanooga Organized for Action, for
example, has been part of the effort to recall
Mayor Ron Littlefield; Brooks and fellow
group member and blogger Joda Thongnopnua acknowledge that they editorialize
and look at their writing more as a way to
evoke opinions.

■ VOTING LAWSUIT Former
U.S. Rep. Lincoln Davis filed
a federal class-action lawsuit Monday against three
state officials, alleging his
voting rights were violated
when he was turned away
at the polls on Super Tuesday. Davis, a Democrat who
represented the state’s 4th
Congressional District from
2003 to 2011, was told he
couldn’t vote at his Pall Mall
polling place after an election worker failed to find
his name on the list of registered voters on March 6,
the suit alleges. Davis never
received notice from the
government that his name
had been purged from the
rolls and never requested
removal, the suit said.
■ FLEISCHMANN SAVINGS
U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann on Monday said he
would return nearly $80,000
in unused office funds to
the U.S. Treasury, capitalizing on a campaign promise
to cut federal spending. “I
challenge other members of
Congress to do this because
it’s the right thing to do,”
Fleischmann said during
a lunchtime speech at the
Hamilton County Pachyderm Club. “It’s the people’s
money.” Fleischmann
promoted the occasion as
a practice-what-I-preach
moment, encouraging media
coverage and flashing a massive $79,693.90 mock check
as he made the announcement.

■ FIRST QUILT There’s
something comforting
about being wrapped in a
quilt. Earlier this year, 7year-old Maddie Gilley of
Cleveland, Tenn., decided
that if people could benefit from a patchwork hug,
so could dolls. With a
little help from her grandmother, Nancy Moore, and
an online tutorial for some
of the trickier techniques,
Maddie began sewing her
first doll-size quilt, which
she completed in February.
“I basically just told her
the safety points, and she
did it,” Moore said, gesturing to the finished product, a 2-foot square of pink
and purple blocks dotted
by decorative stitched
hearts.

Kiefer Sutherland
talks up new show
LONDON — Kiefer Sutherland admits he had no intention
of going back to television after
the action-packed “24” ended
— but that all changed when he
read the script for “Touch.”
The U.S. actor was starring
on Broadway in a play called
“That Championship Season”
when he was approached with
the script for the science fiction
drama.
He was ready to dismiss
“Touch” until he found out
“Heroes” writer Tim Kring was
behind it and Peter Chernin,
the head of 20th Century Fox
when Sutherland started “24,”
was producing it.
“I felt I should read it, kind
of out of respect to both of
those gentlemen. And I did,
and I was around page 32 when
I went, ‘Oh no! Oh no!”’ says
Sutherland.
The 45-year-old was lured
back to TV because, like “24,”
the show gives audiences
something fresh and unique:
An international outlook. The
first episode alone has scenes
set in New York, London, Dublin, Tokyo and Baghdad and
features actors from several
countries.
“We spend so much time
talking and making films and
television and our news about
the divisive things between
human beings, what makes us
different,” Sutherland told The
Associated Press. “It’s been a
long time since I saw someone

Barnes Foundation
foes must pay fees
PHILADELPHIA — The
Barnes Foundation must be
reimbursed $40,000 in legal
fees by opponents fighting the
world-famous art collection’s
move from the suburbs to
downtown Philadelphia,
according to a ruling from the
judge who has presided over
the long legal battle.
Montgomery County
Orphans’ Court Judge Stanley
Ott ordered about a dozen
members of Friends of the
Barnes Foundation and the
group’s attorney, Sam Stretton,
to pay a total of $25,000. Ott
also ordered a Pennsylvania
attorney who filed a separate
petition to reimburse the foundation $15,000.
The Barnes Foundation
sought reimbursement for
$65,000 in fees and costs to
respond to petitions filed by
both groups seeking to reopen
the case. A Barnes spokesman
declined to comment Monday
on the judge’s decision, dated
Wednesday.
Stretton said Monday he will
“absolutely” appeal the judge’s
order, which he said he found
shocking.
“I believe I did raise serious
and important issues we had
not raised before,” he said. “It
was not frivolous.”
In October, Ott refused the
opponents’ request to reopen
the case and rejected claims
that he didn’t have all the evidence when he approved the
Barnes’ move in 2004.

Health overhaul blueprint for states released
cle course. The rule comes
just two weeks before the
Supreme Court takes up a
challenge to the constitutionality of the law in a case
brought by states. Many governors and legislators are on
the sidelines awaiting the
outcome, even as time is running out to act.
Starting Jan. 1, 2014, new
health insurance markets
called “exchanges” must be
up and running in every state,
the linchpin of a grand plan
to make health insurance
accessible and affordable
to those who now struggle
to find and keep coverage.
Individual consumers and
small businesses will be able
to shop online for competitively priced coverage, and
many will receive government subsidies to help pay
premiums.
“More competition
will drive down costs and
exchanges will give individuals and small businesses
the same purchasing power
big businesses have today,”
Health and Human Services
Secretary Kathleen Sebelius
said in a statement.
Experts say it’s anybody’s
guess how the national rollout will go. If a state is not
ready, the law requires the
federal government to step
in to run its exchange. But
the Obama administration’s
request for $800 million to
operate federal exchanges
has gotten a frosty reception
from congressional Republicans.
“At this point it’s still an
open question as to whether
all the states will open up as
of 1-1-2014,” said Neil Traut-

BUFORD, Wyo.
— What’s advertised as the

Buford, located between

Sammons plans to retire

Sammons’ family members moved away over the

INDIANAPOLIS
— Indianapolis police say
they haven’t determined
what caused a school bus to
crash into a railroad bridge
pillar, killing a 5-year-old
girl and the bus driver and
critically injuring two other
students.
Police have identified the
girl killed as Donasty Smith
and the driver as 60-year-old
Thomas Spencer II, of Indianapolis. Spencer was driving the bus Monday morning when it slammed into a
bridge pillar in the center
of a city street with about
50 students of Indianapolis
Lighthouse Charter School
on board.
Two male students were
taken to a hospital in critical
condition and eight others
had less serious injuries.
Authorities say witnesses
saw nothing unusual before
the bus hit the bridge. Police
spokesman Anthony Schneider says investigators are
still reviewing evidence and
awaiting autopsy results on
the driver.

In Yankima, Wash, Monday,

Automakers target
distracted driving
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Drivers will switch from using
distracting devices built into
car dashboards to using even
more distracting handheld
devices unless the government addresses both issues
at the same time, automakers
warned Monday.
Voluntary guidelines
proposed last month by the
National Highway Traffic
Safety Administration call for
automakers to include technology in cars that automatically disables built-in phone
calling, texting, emailing,
Web-surfing and other distracting devices unless the
car is parked. GPS navigation
systems still would work, but
drivers would only be able
to enter addresses when the
vehicle is stationary.
The proposal is the first
of three sets of guidelines
aimed at driver distractions
that the agency is working on. A second proposal
on technologies that would
limit drivers’ use of handheld
devices while the car is in
motion is tentatively scheduled to be unveiled next year.
The third proposal — guidelines on how automakers
can use voice activation to
reduce the number of times
drivers need to press buttons
or touch screens — is expected a year after that.
But carmakers and others urged NHTSA officials
at a public hearing to speed
up work on the second two
phases. Consumers want to
make phone calls, get directions, and dozens of other
things while driving, and
they will find a way to do it,
carmakers said.

When a federal judge in

22 years in 2005 the government appealed to the 9th U.S.
Circuit Court of Appeals.
The 11-judge panel dominated by appointees of
Democratic presidents said
a more appropriate sentence
would be in the range set by
the federal guidelines, suggesting that Ressam remain
in prison for what is likely to
be the rest of his life.

million in restitution to San

In a joint statement,

injured dozens of people
and destroyed 38 homes.
The funds will help San

WASHINGTON — The
U.S. federal deficit was slightly smaller through the first
five months of the budget
year than the previous year.
Still, the imbalance is on pace
to exceed $1 trillion for the
fourth straight year, which
could be an issue in this year’s
presidential election.
The Treasury Department
said that the deficit grew
by $232 billion in February.
That increased the imbalance
through the first five months
of the budget year to $581 billion, or 9 percent less than the
same period in fiscal 2011.
The Obama administration expects the deficit will
reach $1.3 trillion when the
budget year ends on Sept. 30.
That would nearly match last
year’s gap. The government
ran a record deficit of $1.41
trillion in 2009 and a $1.29
trillion gap in 2010.
The deficit was slightly
lower at the start of the year
in part because the government took in more taxes from
corporations.

In Israel, government
officials and missile experts
praised the performance of
Iron Dome, an Israeli-made
system designed to shoot
down short-range rockets
like those fired from Gaza.
Iron Dome has been rolled
out over the past year, and the
current fighting poses its most
serious test. Israel has other
systems deployed against longer-range missiles.
Iron Dome uses cameras
and radar to track incoming
rockets and intercepts only
those that would pose a threat
to people and property, ignoring those that are expected to
fall in open areas.
The military said that of
cow both called for an end
to the bloody conflict — but
on different terms, leaving
prospects for U.N. action in
doubt.
The reports of killings in
the battered city of Homs
added to concerns that the
hundreds of civilian deaths
caused by the fighting would
be compounded by reprisals
against opposition supporters in recaptured towns and
neighborhoods.
Fresh from stamping out
rebel centers of resistance in
Homs, government forces are
pressing on with new offensives in other parts of central
and northern Syria.
The main Syrian opposition group, the Syrian
National Council, called for
“immediate” Arab and international military intervention, including setting up safe
corridors for humanitarian
aid and a no-fly zone to pro-
tect civilians.
The Britain-based Syrian Observatory for Human
Rights said at least 16 people
were killed Sunday night in
Homs, while the Local Coordination Committees said 45
were killed.
JERUSALEM — For
more than a decade, Israel
has systematically built up
its military specifically for
a possible strike on Iranian
nuclear facilities. It has sent
its air force on long-distance
training missions, procured
American-made “bunkerbusting” bombs and bolstered its missile defenses.
Prime Minister Benjamin
Netanyahu’s threats to strike
Iran, voiced last week during a high-profile visit to the
White House, were not empty
bluster. Although a unilateral
Israeli attack would probably
not destroy Iran’s nuclear
program, it appears capable,
at least for now, of inflicting
a serious blow.
“If Israel attacks, the
intention is more to send a
message of determination, a
political message instead of
a tactical move,” said Yiftah
Shapir, a former Israeli air
force officer who now is a
military analyst at the INSS
think tank in Tel Aviv.
Israel, along with the
United States and other
Western countries, believes
Iran has taken key steps
toward developing nuclear
weapons. The U.N.’s nuclear
watchdog agency has cited
this concern in reports, but
notes its inspectors have
found no direct evidence
that Iran is moving toward
an atomic weapon.
Israeli leaders, however,
argue that time is quickly
running out. They have
grown increasingly vocal
in their calls for tough concerted international action
against Iran while stressing they are prepared to act
alone if necessary.

In the past, information was

White House says
strategy won’t change
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The
weekend massacre of Afghan
civilians allegedly carried
out by a U.S. soldier newly
undermined the rationale
for a war that a majority of
Americans already thought
wasn’t worth fighting. But the
Obama administration and
its allies insisted Monday the
horrific episode would not
speed up plans to pull out
foreign forces.
President Barack Obama
called the episode “absolutely tragic and heartbreaking,”
and Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton called
it “inexplicable.”
But she told reporters at
the United Nations in New
York, “This terrible incident
does not change our steadfast dedication to protecting the Afghan people and
to doing everything we can
to build a strong and stable
Afghanistan.”
Administration officials
were reacting to the weekend killing of 16 Afghan
civilians, including nine children asleep in their beds. A
U.S. Army staff sergeant is
accused of slipping away
from his base in the Taliban
heartland of Kandahar and
shooting nearby villagers in
their homes.
Despite the deaths, “Our
strategic objectives have not
changed and they will not
change,” White House press
secretary Jay Carney said.
Many Republicans — who
as a party fought against a
quick exodus in Iraq and
criticized Obama’s 2008
presidential campaign promise to end that war — are
now reluctant to embrace a
continued commitment in
Afghanistan.
“We have to either make a
decision to make a full commitment, which this president
has not done, or we have to
decide to get out and probably get out sooner” than
planned in 2014, GOP presidential hopeful Rick Santo-
rum said Monday. He spoke
on NBC’s “Today” show.
Said GOP presidential
contender Newt Gingrich:
“I think that we’re risking
the lives of young men and
women in a mission that may,
frankly, not be doable.”
Still, Mitt Romney said
he “wouldn’t jump to a new
policy based upon some
deranged, crazy person.”
Under an agreement with
the Afghan government, some
U.S. and NATO forces are to
stay in Afghanistan at least
through the end of 2014.
Afghan President Hamid
Karzai has sought assurances
that the foreign forces that
support his fragile government will not leave en masse.
He is due to leave office in
2014, and both he and Western
leaders have said it will take
that long to get the Afghan
military ready to take on Taliban-led militants who are
unlikely to quit the fight.
Carney would not say
whether Obama worries
that the killings increase
security risks for Americans
in Afghanistan. The United
States has about 90,000 troops
in the country; that number is
scheduled to drop to 68,000
by the end of September.
Pentagon press secretary
George Little said the weekend house-by-house killing
spree has not changed the
U.S. approach to the war.
“This is having no impact
on the war effort at this time,”
he said. “No one should think
that we are steering away
from our partnership with
the Afghan people, from our
partnership with the Afghan
security forces and from our
commitment to prosecute
the war effort.”

were injured.
While some Afghans had
speculated that helicopterborne troops were involved,
a senior U.S. diplomat told a
meeting of diplomats from
allied countries Monday
morning that the gunman
had acted alone, walking
first to a village and then to
a cluster of houses some 500
yards away. He returned to
the base and is in custody.
He is to face charges under
the military justice system,
officials said. Helicopters
and other troops arrived only
after the shooting, the diplomat said, and the helicopters
evacuated the wounded.
A senior U.S. military
official said the sergeant was
attached to a unit based at
Joint Base Lewis-McChord,
a major Army and Air Force
installation near Tacoma,
Wash.
Furious comments mounted on social networking sites
like Afghan blogs and Facebook, some of them accompanied by graphic photographs
of what appeared to be children slain in the attack.
The Afghan Parliament
said it condemned “this inhumane and uncivilized act.”
“We urge the United
States government to punish
the culprits and put them on
trial in an open court so that
the rest of those who want to
shed our innocent people’s
blood take a lesson from it,”
it said in a statement.
One member of Parliament
from Kandahar, Mohammed
Naim Lalai Hamidzai, lashed
out at the Afghan leader over
the killings, suggesting that
“if President Karzai cannot
fix the situation, we urge
him and his vice presidents
to resign.”

ings in 2008. Shortly after,
Morton, who helped start the

writing about meetings.
While voicing opinions,
Lance and Morton acknowledged they still try to take a
neutral stance akin to traditional media. They attended
meetings as citizens wanting
to learn more about government and spread that same
excitement to others.
“I never went in it with ‘I

UNITED NATIONS —
The United States and Russia clashed over Syria at the
United Nations on Monday
after the U.N.’s chief urged
the divided Security Council to speak with one voice
and help the Mideast nation
“pull back from the brink of
a deeper catastrophe.”
Washington and Moscow
called for an end to the bloody
yearlong conflict — but on
different terms, leaving in
doubt prospects of breaking
a deadlock in the council over
a new resolution.
U.S. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton rejected
any equivalence between
the “premeditated murders”
carried by President Bashar
Assad’s “military machine”
and the civilians under siege
driven to self-defense.
Russia’s Foreign Minister Sergey Lavrov said Syrian authorities “bear a huge
share of responsibility” but
insisted opposition fighters
and extremists including alQaida are also committing
violent and terrorist acts.
Lavrov said if the priority
is to end any violence and
provide humanitarian aid to
the Syrian people, “then at
this stage we should not talk
about who was the first to
start, but rather discuss realistic and feasible approaches
which would allow [us] to
achieve the cease-fire as a
priority.”
Clinton declared that the
Security Council cannot
“stand silent when governments massacre their own
people, threatening regional
peace and security in the
process.”
The ministerial debate in the
council on challenges from last
year’s Arab Spring was dominated by the yearlong conflict
in Syria, which has killed over
7,500 people, according to the
United Nations.
U.N. Secretary-General
Ban Ki-moon, who led off
the debate, said the conflict
has led the entire region into
uncertainty and subjected
citizens in several cities to
disproportionate violence.
Russia, which is Syria’s
most powerful ally, and China
have vetoed two U.S. and
European-backed Security
Council resolutions which
would have condemned
Assad’s bloody crackdown,
saying they were unbalanced
and demanded that only the
government stop attacks,
not the opposition. Moscow
accused Western powers of
fueling the conflict by backing the rebels.

Healy and just about every
move the mayor made.
Littlefield, though, said he
takes everything in stride.
Social media postings are
akin to looking at the headlines of supermarket tabloids.
They’re tantalizing, but often
not the most accurate information, Littlefield said.
“Those who are against
almost anything can connect,” he said. “They create
a club, and that’s new.”
What’s playing out here is
a phenomenon that has been
seen for several years at the
national level, where a number of online media outlets
and bloggers specializing in
political and government coverage have proliferated. Sites
such as politico.com, tpm.com
or Talking Points Memo and
blog medialite.com have even
achieved a level of legitimacy
that today finds some of them
in the White House briefing
room and on the presidential
campaign trail.
Alex Fitzpatrick, a reporter for New York City-based
Mashable.com, which covers
news stories related to social
media, said bloggers and citizen reporters sometimes are
able to dig up information even
before traditional news media,
which, in turn sometimes supplement the reporting and run
with it later. Citizen reporters
bring another perspective that
traditional media sometimes
misses, he said.
On the other hand, these
groups can band together and
create a dialogue in an echo
chamber in which they and
other interested parties are
the only ones who exchange
information, he said.
“If you interact with people who are ideologically
similar to you, then all you
will see is information ideologically similar to you,” Fitzpatrick said.

“I’ve thought long and
hard about it, and I don’t feel
like an extra holiday is going
to hurt anything, if we’re
helping our employees out,”
he said.
Ron Darden, municipal
management consultant
with the Municipal Technical
Advisory Service at the University of Tennessee, said he
did not believe the number
of East Ridge’s holidays was
out of line. It’s not unusual
for the public sector to have
more paid days off than the
private sector, he said.
“Usually public agencies
get more vacation and holidays. It’s easier to give a holiday than it is to give a raise.
But it does mean that, down
the road, they’re going to
be short-handed on certain
days,” said Darden
But Darden said that an
extra paid holiday is typically
given in lieu of a raise, not in
addition to one.

here is Wacker and other programs on campus,” Smith said.
“We’ll use technology in a
much more important way.”
According to plans, the
high-tech high school will
start with about 75 ninthgraders and reach about 300
students within four years.
Students will be selected by
lottery, Smith said.
“We’d try to make sure all
16 high schools are engaged
on campus,” he said.
The plan is to start classes
at the beginning of the school
year in August, Smith said.
He said the high school
would be paperless, instead
using computers, iPads and
smartphones.
Wayne Cropp, who heads
the Enterprise Center, said
the city needs to provide the
jobs of the future.
“The job market is changing,” he said.
Jim Hall, chairman of
the center’s board, said the
STEM high school needs to
be engaged with the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga.
Smith said a STEM school
would help “keep the best
and brightest here. We’ve
lost a lot of the best and the
brightest.”
Students at the STEM
school would “give up their
home high schools.” he said.
“They would stay here and
receive a full-blown high
school experience. We’d figure out graduation as we get
closer to that.”
Enterprise Center board
member Greg Vital said such
a school would serve not just
Hamilton County but others
in the region as well.
Patsy Hazlewood, the
state Department of Economic and Community
Development’s regional
director and an Enterprise
Center board member, said
while unemployment is high,
there are jobs available but
people don’t have the skill
sets. A STEM school would
help provide those skills.
“Job opportunities are
going unfilled,” she said.

Senate to introduce bill
to help small businesses
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — The
Senate is set to come out with
its version of legislation to help
small businesses raise capital,
paralleling a measure that
cleared the House in a somewhat different form last week
by a large bipartisan margin.
Senate Majority Leader
Harry Reid, D-Nev., said
Monday he planned to work
with his Republican counterpart, Sen. Mitch McConnell
of Kentucky, “to finalize a
path forward” on the legislation, which primarily relaxes
Securities and Exchange Commission regulations to make it
easier for small businesses and
startups to attract investors.
Both Republicans and
Democrats are eager to show
that Congress is capable of
coming together on legislation to boost the economy
and promote job growth, and
President Barack Obama supported the House bill, which
passed on a 390-23 vote.
It remained to be seen
whether Senate changes to
the House version, expected
to be introduced as early as
today, would bog down the
legislation in partisan battles.
The main difference is that
the Senate bill also would
give new legislative authority
to the Export-Import Bank,
an independent agency that
assists U.S. companies trying
to sell abroad with financing.
Inclusion of the Ex-Im Bank
could be a sticking point for
some conservatives.
No date has been set for
the package to reach the Senate floor for debate.
Obama last month called on
Congress to extend the Ex-Im
Bank’s authorization, saying it
was crucial to promoting U.S.
exports. The White House has
pointed out that the bank will
reach its $100 billion lending
limit at the end of March.

person will be off for each

Technically, the extra
holiday is considered a “float

day in the pay period of the

According to a 2011
employee benefits survey
conducted by the U.S. Bureau
of Labor Statistics, the average American receives eight
days of paid holidays per year.
State and local government
employees consistently have
a higher number of paid days
off, with the national average
at 11. Federal employees are
given 10 holidays each year.
Along with paid holidays,
East Ridge operates off a
“leave buy back” policy in
which the city essentially
buys back its employees’
unused vacation or sick days
at varying rates depending
on the length of the employee’s service.

number of holidays could
increase the city’s appeal as

Yahoo sues Facebook
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Yahoo is
filing a lawsuit against Facebook over patents, following
through on a threat it made
last month.
Yahoo Inc. said in a court
filing Monday that Facebook
has infringed 10 of its patents
covering advertising, privacy
controls and social networking.
Yahoo threatened to sue
Facebook last month, insisting that the social network
license its patents.
Facebook pledged to
defend itself vigorously
against what it called “puzzling actions” by Yahoo.
“We’re disappointed that
Yahoo, a longtime business
partner of Facebook and a
company that has substantially
benefited from its association
with Facebook, has decided to
resort to litigation,” Facebook
said in a statement.
The patent claims could
cast a spotlight on Facebook’s vulnerabilities as the
company tries to complete
an initial public offering of
stock this spring. At the end
of 2011, only 56 U.S. patents
had been issued to Facebook.
That’s a relatively small number compared with other big
tech companies. Yahoo, on
the other hand, owns more
than 1,000 patents.
Yahoo defended its lawsuit,
saying it has invested “substantial resources in research
and development” over the
years that have led to patents
of technology that other companies have licensed.
“Unfortunately, the matter
with Facebook remains unresolved,” the company said in
a statement.
Yahoo made hundreds of
millions of dollars from a patent settlement that it reached
with Google Inc. just before
that Internet search leader
went public in 2004.

Ricky L. Davis, who is charged with attempted murder, is escorted into Criminal Court early Monday.
Judge tosses evidence
Information collected without a warrant ruled inadmissible
By Todd South
Staff Writer
A judge ruled Monday that evidence
gathered by Chattanooga police against
a man accused of attempted murder cannot be used because officers did not get
a warrant first.
Ricky L. Davis, 26, became the focal
point of outcry from North Chattanooga
residents in the summer of 2010 shortly
after his arrest in multiple burglaries and
home invasions.
Davis had been in state prison from
January 2006 until April 2010 for guilty
pleas on aggravated burglaries in the
same area of town. Police arrested him
in July 2010 in connection with a robbery
at 304 Tremont St.
On Monday, Hamilton County Criminal Court Judge Barry Steelman ruled in
Davis’ favor, following a U.S. Supreme
Court opinion issued in October 2011
about the use of Global Positioning Sys-

In USA v. Jones, police in the Washington, D.C., area attached a GPS device to a
suspect’s car to track alleged drug deals.
Police got a warrant before using the
device, but attached it after the warrant

warrants are required for GPS tracking.
In Davis’ case, Chattanooga police
did not get a warrant to put the tracking device on the car of Davis’ sister, so

Davis faces four counts of aggravated
robbery, one charge of theft, two weapons charges and one charge of attempted
first-degree murder related to a series of
business robberies in Hixson.

outcry led Chattanooga police to hold a

Chattanooga Airport has received a $5
million state grant for construction of a
second hangar at its new general aviation
center.
However, an airport official said officials
are evaluating the need.
Terry Hart, the Airport Authority’s
interim chief, said they’ve got five years
to build and officials are not obligated to
do so.
“We are simply performing due diligence to determine the availability of funds
and the demand in this region,” he said in
a statement.
He said officials have asked Wilson Air
Center, which is operating the new terminal, to make a recommendation.
According to the state Department of
Transportation grant, the airport would
have to chip in $555,555 for
the project.
The existing hangar is
part of the airport’s new
general aviation terminal
facilities on the west side
of the main runway.
The construction of the
facilities has drawn fire
from Tac Air, the airport’s
longtime fixed base opera- Terry
Hart
tor.
Pam McAllister, Tac Air’s general manager, has said the new facility wasn’t needed and that the airport is trying to drive the
business from Lovell Field.
But Hart said competition is benefiting
airport users by driving down their costs.
Still, airport officials said that losses
at the new terminal already have hit the
entire year’s projected deficit in the first
five months of operation.
The general aviation terminal and hangar that opened in August has lost a little
more than $300,000 so far, airport officials
said. Original projections had put the total
first-year deficit for the terminal — which
offers fuel and hangar space to corporate
planes and pilots — at about $300,000, they
said.
Dave Ivey, Wilson Air’s vice president,
said while the new terminal is expected to
experience a loss for the year, he believes
the facility will turn a profit within five
years.
The new hangar is nearly filled up and
only has space for a small plane, officials
have said.
Meanwhile, the planned new airport in
Cleveland, Tenn., received grants totaling
nearly $1.5 million.
The Athens-McMinn County, Tenn., airport received state and federal grants of more
than $1.53 million, according to TDOT.

House rejects resolution
praising Young Democrats
By Ray Henry
The Associated Press
AT L A N TA — T h e
Re p u b l i c a n - c o n t r o l l e d
Georgia House on Monday
rejected a resolution praising
Democratic youth and gay
rights groups, prompting a
Democrat to complain that
state lawmakers had “gone
down the tube.”
The resolution by Democratic Rep.
Keisha Waites,
Georgia o f At l a n t a ,
Legislature praised the
Young Democrats at the
University of
Georgia for
registering voters and volunteering on political campaigns, including the 2008
presidential campaign of
Democrat Barack Obama.
The measure also praised the
university’s Lambda Alliance
and Ally Outreach, which
support gay rights.
The resolution explained
that the Lambda Alliance
sponsors locally the National
Coming Out Day and a semiannual drag show.
Ceremonial resolutions
typically are approved unanimously without debate. But
Testimony
wraps up
in Georgia
murder trial
this time, House Majority Leader Larry O’Neal, a
Republican, successfully
pressed to get the Democratic resolution removed from
the pile. It then was rejected
in a lopsided 32-104 vote.
O’Neal said he wanted the
resolution defeated because
of its party politics, not
because of its praise of gay
rights groups. Deeply conservative Georgia historically
has been hostile to gay rights.
In 2004, state lawmakers and
voters revised the state constitution to ban gay marriage.
The leading Republican candidates for governor in 2010
publicly touted their anti-gay
marriage credentials in ads.
“It’s a political resolution
that looks like the entire
House is commending a particular political candidate and
political philosophy,” O’Neal
said in an interview. “We’ve
got an election season coming up, and I didn’t want the
other side running around
with a resolution adopted by
the entire House — Republicans and Democrats and
independents — saying that
we’re commending and supporting Barack Obama, for
instance, for president.”
The resolution did not
endorse Obama, but it did
commend the Democratic
students for working on his
campaign.
Other ceremonial resolutions that recently breezed
through the House of Representatives are less controversial. For example, House
lawmakers — though many
of them likely don’t know
it — have praised a middle

who raised money for charity and a county choir.
Democratic Rep. Joe Heckstall, of East Point, asked his
fellow lawmakers to adopt
the resolution, saying many
of his colleagues typically
don’t even read them.
“We have just gone down
the tube in this House,” Heckstall said, “when we start
picking on small things that
are not relevant that we’ve
allowed in the past.”
That brought a rebuke
from House Speaker David
Ralston, a Republican. Heckstall apologized.
“The members here have
an opportunity, and I think
even an obligation, to read
everything they vote on,”
Ralston said.

DECATUR, Ga. — The
jury deciding the fate of
a man who claims he was
insane when he gunned down
a romantic rival outside a day
care center could begin deliberating as early as today after
testimony in the high-profile
trial wrapped up.
During the three weeks of
testimony that ended Monday,
jurors heard sharply contrasting theories about what could
have driven Hemy Neuman to
shoot Russell Sneiderman on
Nov. 18, 2010, minutes after he
dropped his son off at a preschool in the Atlanta suburb
of Dunwoody.
Th ey ’ ve l i s te n e d to
prosecutors who say Neuman meticulously plotted
the cold-blooded killing of
Sneiderman, whose wife
worked for Neuman. And
they’ve heard from defense
attorneys who say Neuman
was so delusional during the
shooting that he believed he
was the father of his victim’s
two young children.
Both sides will get one
last chance to make a lasting
impression on the jury during closing arguments today.
And both are expected to
spend part of their time on
the questions surrounding
Andrea Sneiderman, the victim’s widow, who has been a
frequent focus of the trial of
her ex-boss.
Prosecutors and defense
lawyers have suggested that
Andrea was involved in an
affair with Neuman, that she
knew details of his death
suspiciously early and that
she tried to protect Neuman
after the killing.
She has denied allegations
she was in an inappropriate
relationship with Neuman,
who was her supervisor at
General Electric, and said she
was victimized by a “masterful manipulator” who attacked
her husband when she turned
down his advances.
The trial has attracted
international attention
because of the brazenness of
the slaying, the backgrounds
of the suspect and victim and
the fact that it took place outside a day care center.
Russell Sneiderman, a Harvard-trained entrepreneur, was
slain shortly after dropping off
the couple’s 2-year-old son
at the center in Dunwoody,
a wealthy suburb north of
Atlanta. A bearded man in a
hoodie fired four shots and
then hopped into a silver minivan and melted away into the
morning rush hour.
Neuman, a Georgia Tech
graduate and father of three
who was a high-ranking manager at GE, was arrested about
six weeks later after prosecutors learned he had rented a
similar vehicle before the
shooting. The 49-year-old
could face life in prison if he’s
found guilty of murder.

Davis said he wants the
court to rule that the state’s

to require the state to restore
any eligible voters improperly purged since state Coordinator of Elections Mark
Goins took office in February 2009. More than 70,000
voters were purged from the
state’s rolls during six months
of 2011, the suit said.

Davis came from the state
Division of Elections office

“I begged him to go, quite

started going into the 2010
election when he lost.”
Davis, who lives in Fentress County, said no one
at the polling place offered
him a provisional ballot or
explained he had the right
to cast one. The lawsuit says
both the Fentress County
Administrator of Elections
and Goins later contacted
Davis to encourage him to
register and cast a provisional ballot.
Davis did not return to the
polls on election night and
says in the suit that state law
requires a voter to be registered to vote at least 30 days
before an election.
Davis is represented by
the law firm Barrett Johnston.
Attorney George Barrett is
asking the court to fast-track
the discovery period in the
case.
“There’s an election in

straightened out before then

CLEVELAND, Tenn.
— City staff presented a proposed $220 million budget to
the Cleveland City Council
Monday that does not have
any additional property tax.
The proposed budget for
fiscal year 2013, which begins
July 1, is 4 percent larger than
the current budget. It does
not include a sanitation fee
increase or a salary increase
for city employees.
However, both the city
school system and Cleveland Utilities have employee
raises in their proposed budgets.
“We’ve got a lot of welltrained employees that we
don’t want to go anywhere
else,” Mayor Tom Rowland
said.
He has said he would like
to include a pay increase for
other city employees.
“I think everybody here is
of one accord that city folks
should have the same amount
as schools and Cleveland
Utilities,” City Councilman
Dale Hughes said.
“I desperately would like
to give our employees a
raise,” City Manager Janice
Casteel said.
City employees have a
larger workload already, she
said, because 15 positions are
vacant and seven others have
been eliminated.
Casteel said the city will
re-bid employee health insurance plans this year, and the
cost likely will go up.
“I would hate to see
employees receiving less pay
because of health insurance
increases,” Councilman Bill
Estes said.

About 15 state troopers gathered on Legislative Plaza to remove the last tent of
Occupy Nashville protester Chris Humphrey early Monday in Nashville. Humphrey,
a lone protester maintaining his vigil at the Occupy Nashville camp near the Capitol,
was not arrested.
Haslam wants to avoid
making Occupy arrests
Lone protester remains outside the state Capitol
By Lucas L. Johnson II
The Associated Press
NASHVILLE — Gov. Bill
Haslam said Monday that
he wants to avoid arresting
Occupy Nashville protesters
unless there is a flagrant violation of a new law intended
to evict them from their
camp near the state Capitol.
The law, signed by the
Republican governor, prohibits camping on state property
that is not specifically designated for it.
State troopers had an
opportunity to arrest 24year-old Christopher Humphrey early Monday morning. He was maintaining his
vigil at the group’s camp on
War Memorial Plaza.
Humphrey said he was
asked to come out of his
tent. When he did, he said
he stood in front of the tent
and extended his arms to be
handcuffed.
“The officer very carefully
grabbed my arm, walked me
about four paces ... and said
that I wasn’t being arrested,”
Humphrey said. “That was
disappointing to me because
I knew that I was going to be
arrested.”
He said the troopers proceeded to remove his tent,
as well as two others nearby
from the plaza. State workers
then began pressure washing
the plaza.
Safety Department spokeswoman Jennifer Donnals told
The Associated Press in an
email that “no arrests were
made and no citations issued
as all protesters on the plaza
cooperated with the troopers.”
Haslam later told reporters that he doesn’t want to
put anyone in jail unless
“
My request as the
bill sponsor was to give
these folks a fair shake.
I’ve always said, even as
a law enforcement officer
myself, a lot of times it’s
better to enforce the spirit
of the law than the letter
of the law.
”
— Rep. Eric Watson,
R-Cleveland
“somebody is just flagrantly
disobeying the law.”
“I don’t think the purpose
of any of this was to arrest
anybody and put them in
jail,” Haslam said. “The purpose was to do what the Legislature asked us to do with
Legislative Plaza, which was
to clear it of tents and folks
camping out there.”
The state gave the protesters a seven-day notice
on March 2 to remove their
encampment, but it wasn’t
clear when the Tennessee
Highway Patrol would start
enforcing the law.
Rep. Eric Watson, RCleveland, the sponsor of
the legislation, said he asked
that the protesters be given a
warning even after the sevenday period.
“My request as the bill
sponsor was to give these
folks a fair shake,” said Watson, a former sheriff’s lieutenant. “I’ve always said,
even as a law enforcement
officer myself, a lot of times
it’s better to enforce the spirit of the law than the letter of
the law.”
The main provision of the
legislation makes it a misde-
meanor to lay down “bedding
for the purpose of sleeping”
on government-owned land
at the Capitol. It refers to
items associated with camping, “including tents, portable
toilets, sleeping bags, tarps,
stakes, ropes, blankets, propane heaters, cooking equipment and generators.”
Violators can face up to a

$2,500 or both.
State troopers raided the
encampment in late October and made 55 arrests, but
Haslam ordered the charges
dropped when Nashville
courts refused to jail the
protesters.
The state backed down
and decided not to fight
a federal court order that
found the raids had violated
the First Amendment rights
of the protesters.
Critics contend the new
law passed will in effect
criminalize homelessness.
The protesters in Nashville
have used the plaza area near
where lawmakers work to
protest corporate influence
in government and income
inequality.
Humphrey said getting
arrested is one way the group
can “continue making a statement” and he doesn’t plan to
stop contesting the law.
“Something that criminalizes ... people is worth coming out here day after day,”
Humphrey said.
Protester Jane Hussain
agreed.
“I think we can definitely
say there will be more tents
on the plaza,” she said.
At one time there were
as many as 60 tents on the
plaza. As of Monday afternoon, there were none.
Foster care payment
system glitches found
The Associated Press
NASHVILLE — Problems with an expensive new
computer system used by the
Department of Children’s
Services have led to some foster care parents getting paid
too much or not enough.
The Tennessean reported
that more than $2.5 million
in duplicate and missed payments have been identified
by the department, which is
hurrying to repair the problems with the system.
The software system,
called the Tennessee Family
and Child Tracking System,
was rolled out in 2010 for $37
million to streamline DCS
operations and better track
services provided to children
in state care. The newspaper
also reported last year that
foster parents started experiencing problems with the
system shortly after it was
installed
An audit by the state
comptroller released last

Davis is seeking classaction certification — when
multiple plaintiffs with similar claims are joined in one
suit — and hopes to find other
voters whose names might
have been wrongly purged,

They also have requested

The Associated Press
Demonstrators around the Georgia Capitol protest two pieces of legislation they say
are unfair to women Monday in Atlanta.
ATLANTA — The Georgia Senate has approved a
House proposal that would
create a uniform process for
cities and counties that establish foreclosure registries.
The Senate amendment to
House Bill 110 passed by a vote
of 33-15 as metro-Atlanta area
and rural lawmakers debated
for about two hours.
Under the proposal, cities
or counties with foreclosure
registries would require owners to register those properties or face a fine.
Supporters maintained
that the Legislature should
do something to address the
state’s foreclosure crisis and
a growing concern about
neglected properties, while
critics claimed the measure
could infringe on private
property rights without actually cracking down on absentee owners.
“In Georgia, the program
has become worse with the
recession,” said state Sen.
Jesse Stone, R-Waynesboro,
who sponsored the bill in the
chamber. He said with properties constantly changing
hands it has become difficult
to identify the current owners
and for local governments to
enforce code violations.
To help combat that, some
counties and cities are requiring that owners register the
properties. Under Stone’s
proposal, the registration fee
would be capped at $100 and
the maximum penalty for not
registering would be $1,000.
The bill is a carryover from
last year, when it stalled as lobbyists for cities and counties,
as well as the banking and real
estate industries, raised concerns that the bill could have
unintended consequences.
The original legislation was
sponsored by state Rep. Mike
Jacobs, a Republican lawmaker whose district includes
DeKalb County, which took
in more than $550,000 in
foreclosure fees in less than a
year. The fees raised eyebrows
among some who worried the
registry could be used as a
way to fill strapped municipal coffers.
Sen. Vincent Fort, D-Atlanta, supported the bill, which
he said does not just affect
neighborhoods with foreclosures. Fort proposed a failed
amendment that would have
required state funds derived
from the recently reached federal settlement with mortgage
lenders to be used to help distressed homeowners.
“This is a weak effort, but
it is an effort,” he said. “They
have an impact. We all pay
for it.”
The proposal would apply
to foreclosed and vacant
properties, and would not
mandate cities or counties to
create foreclosure registries
— a concern among rural
lawmakers, whose areas have
not been as hard hit as the
urban parts of the state.
“This is a real issue, not to
the whole state, but to certain areas of the state,” said
Sen. Don Balfour, R-Snellville, whose district includes
many foreclosures. “But this
is a huge issue to homeowners.”

The Associated Press
ATLANTA — A Senate
committee has passed a bill
that would revoke bonuses
for Georgia teachers who
cheat on standardized tests.
The Democratic-backed
legislation was approved
unanimously by the Senate
education committee Monday. It now goes to the full
Senate for a vote before heading to the governor’s desk.
Under current policy,
teachers can receive bonuses
or incentive pay based on the
standardized test scores of
their students.
The bill stems from last
year’s cheating scandal in
Atlanta Public Schools.
A state investigation in
July revealed widespread
cheating by educators in
nearly half of the Atlanta’s
100 schools dating to 2001.
In all, nearly 180 teachers and
principals were accused of
giving answers to students or
changing responses once the
tests had been completed.

An end to vote suppression
T
he privilege of voting is so
fundamental an American right
that any attempt to strip an individual of that prerogative undermines
the nation’s core values. Highly partisan
legislative initiatives to make it difficult or
impossible for certain voters — especially
the poor and minorities — are currently
under way. Fortunately, there are determined individuals and agencies working
diligently to halt those heinous actions.
The latest voter suppression initiatives include state laws requiring voters
to show government-issued photo identification at their polling station. Legislative
sponsors and supporters of voter ID laws
say that such a requirement would insure
the integrity of elections and reduce the
possibility of fraud. Nonsense. There’s no
need for such laws. Voter fraud is so rare
that election officials are hard-pressed to
recount a successful incidence of it.
Voter ID bills, invariably sponsored
by Republicans, are designed solely
to enhance the GOP vote. They do so
because they disproportionately affect
minority and poor voters — those most
likely to vote for Democrats and those
most likely to have difficulty obtaining
the required IDs in rural counties without
drivers’ license centers. With Republicans in control of state legislative bodies,
though, it’s hard for truth and justice in
this matter to carry the day.
Another tried-and-true way to manipulate voter turnout is to excessively purge
voter lists. Though there is justification
for periodic purge programs, the lists
often are trimmed arbitrarily and without notification to those whose names
are removed. Just ask former Rep. Lincoln
Davis, who ably represented Tennessee’s
4th Congressional district from 2003 to
2011.
Davis, a Democrat, was turned away
from his long-time polling station in
Fentress County last week because,
election officials said, his name was no
longer on voter rolls. Davis, though, had
never changed his voting residence or
requested that his name be removed,
and he had never been notified that his
name had been deleted. Moreover, he was
not offered a provisional ballot — one
that allows a person to cast a vote with
a decision made later on whether it will
be counted — as required by law. Davis
understandably was outraged, and he’s
done something about it.
On Monday, he filed a federal class
action lawsuit alleging that his rights were
violated when he was not allowed to vote.
As part of his class action suit, he asked
the court to restore any eligible voters
among the more than 70,000 individuals
whose names have been purged from voting rolls since 2009. That is a reasonable
request. The court should fast-track the
case, and explore the validity of the states’
purge program.
Opponents of unfair voter ID statutes
did score a victory Monday when the Justice Department blocked Texas’s new law.
The department said that the measure may
disenfranchise large numbers minority
voters — Hispanics, in this instance. Other
states, including Tennessee, have similar
rules. Their implementation should be
stopped by federal authorities, too.
The on-going Republican-led effort to
suppress the vote abrogates the American
tradition of expanding and protecting citizens’ most precious franchise — the right
to vote. Davis’ and the Justice Department’s actions on Monday are positive
steps in reversing that effort.
A massacre in Afghanistan
The senseless slaughter Sunday of 16
Afghan civilians, nine of them children,
by an apparently deranged American
soldier who walked away from his base
and barged in their nearby homes as they
slept, is an enormous tragedy. It is an
inexplicable, devastating act of violence
that defies any sense of common human
compassion. Beyond that, this cruel carnage may also become a flashpoint that
changes the course of the plodding U.S.
war in Afghanistan.
As of Monday afternoon, the shooter
had been identified only as a 38-year-old
Army sergeant based in Tacoma, Wash.,
a married father of two children who
had served three tours in Iraq and was
on first deployment in Afghanistan. He
reportedly walked about a mile to a village, where he broke into three houses,
shot the occupants and gathered their
bodies and set them afire. At least five
other Afghans were wounded, some seriously. After the shooting spree, the sergeant reportedly returned to his base and
turned himself in.
Though the investigation into his murderous rampage is just beginning, the
consequences loom large. The massacre
comes in the wake of national protests
and murderous violence that erupted
last month over the reported burning of
the Koran by American soldiers. Several
Americans were killed by Afghan soldiers
and security officials after the burning
became known.
That violence reflected, as well, the
hardening and pent-up resentment of
the Karzai government and ordinary
Afghans toward Americans and NATO
troops for drone attacks and night-time
raids in Afghan villages, for the defiling
of bodies of dead Taliban by U.S. troops,
and generally for the seemingly endless
10-year war.
Relations between the Karzai government and U.S. and NATO forces have
been further strained by the blatant corruption in the government, narcotics
trafficking, and the spreading view that
the Taliban — bolstered by popular disenchantment and cynicism against the
current foreign occupation — may well
survive the NATO occupation.
The Obama administration has been
working on several fronts in Afghanistan to hasten an American withdrawal of fighting forces over the next two
years. The administration has stepped
up attacks on the Taliban, while simultaneously attempting to negotiate with
Taliban leaders on the grounds that they
are a spent force, and that U.S. and NATO
support for the Afghan army will ensure
government control of the country once
NATO forces are largely withdrawn. It
has also been negotiating for “an enduring
strategic partnership” that would allow
for American advisors to the Afghan
army and U.S. aid to help stabilize the
Kabul government.
The murderous Sunday rampage, however, may well chill the government’s
cooperation and irreparably harden
resentment against the American and
NATO presence, analysts believe. It could
also persuade the Taliban that the U.S.
presence — the backbone of the NATO
force — is becoming untenable; that popular resistance and mistrust will soon
force Washington and NATO powers to
withdraw, and that all it has to do is wait
for Americans to leave. That perception
could turn the tide of the war.
COMMENTARY
The phony settlement
Forgive me for repeating
myself, but I’m going to start
this column with an anecdote
about Ken
Feinberg
that I’ve told
before.
It was
Nove m b e r
2010, a few
months after
Feinberg had
been named
Joe
the adminisNocera
trator of the
$20 billion fund that BP had
established to compensate victims of the Deepwater Horizon
disaster. He and I were having
breakfast, and he was recounting some of the more ludicrous
claims that already had begun
streaming in. The restaurant in
Las Vegas that said it had lost
business because its shrimp
scampi wasn’t as good without Gulf Coast shrimp. The
Florida dentist who wanted
to be compensated because
fewer patients were getting
cavities filled in the wake of
the oil spill.
Two tables over, another
diner, overhearing the conversation, looked up at Feinberg. “Just pay them,” he said
angrily.
A year and a half later, that
is exactly what is about to
happen. Feinberg just stepped
down from the Gulf Coast
Claims Facility, having doled
out $6.1 billion to some 220,000
claimants. It is in the process
of being replaced by a new
claims facility, the result of the
recent settlement between BP
and the plaintiffs’ lawyers who
had been suing the company
in federal court.
That settlement has been
estimated as being worth
$7.8 billion, but, since it is
uncapped, it could actually
cost BP a lot more than that.
And even though the majority of legitimate claims already
■ The settlement will
generate hundreds of
thousands of new claims,
many of which are likely to
be bogus.
have been paid by Feinberg,
the settlement will generate
hundreds of thousands of new
claims, many of which are likely to be bogus.
The two lawyers who
spearheaded the settlement
issued a statement claiming that the settlement “does
the greatest amount of good
for the greatest number of
people.” What it really does
is ensure that hundreds of
millions of dollars will wind
up in the pockets of lawyers
whose cases were evaporating, thanks to Feinberg. They
might as well erect billboards
along the Gulf Coast proclaiming “Free Money for All!”
The Gulf Coast Claims
Facility could — and should
— serve as a model for how to
compensate victims after a big
industrial disaster. It was vastly
more efficient than using lawsuits to extract money from
companies. It was fairer, too; in
lawsuits, some victims get rich
while others are left emptyhanded, even though their
cases are virtually the same.
That didn’t happen with the
claims facility. In fact, the lawyers who took their clients to
Feinberg said that, most of the
time, he was more generous
than the legal system would
likely have been.
What the BP claims process couldn’t do, it turns out,
is overcome lawyers’ greed.
For those lawyers who helped
clients go through Feinberg’s
process, their fees were relatively low — as they should
have been. But that’s also why,
despite the clear appeal of the
claims process, other lawyers
continued to press on with
their lawsuits, which they settled just before BP was about
to go on trial to establish the
extent of its liability. Yet with
the number of legitimate cases
dwindling, they still weren’t
guaranteed a big pay day —
unless they could find a way
to gin up new categories of
claimants. That is what this
settlement does.
Take, for example, the
health claims that will now be
allowed. The plaintiffs’ press
release says that the settlement will “potentially benefit
hundreds of thousands” of
gulf residents who “suffered
acute or chronic illnesses” as
a result of the spill. In truth,
only around 700 people sought
compensation for health reasons from Feinberg. Why?
Because there is no evidence
that the spill caused serious
health problems. The only
health claims Feinberg accepted came from rig workers who
were truly injured. Thanks to
the settlement, anybody in
the gulf with a runny nose
can now seek compensation.
Meanwhile, injured rig workers are specifically excluded
from the settlement.

that morning, I asked Feinberg
why he didn’t just do what the
man had suggested: Pay them
all. BP, after all, was the clear
villain, and nobody would care
if he gave its money to undeserving claimants.
“If the process lacks credibility,” he replied, “people will
begin to question the legitimacy of this alternative to the
court system. The idea that
I’m Santa Claus undercuts the
integrity of the process.”
As Feinberg steps down, no
one can say he didn’t handle
the process with integrity. The
tragedy is that the legal system
hasn’t followed suit.

■ Can tights be manly? As
the “Robin Hood: Men in
Tights” song goes, “We’re
men, we’re men in tights;
we roam around the forest
looking for fights.
Week last month, Alexandre
Plokhov, the Russian-born
menswear designer, sent out
male models walking awkwardly in long skirts and hair
extensions; they were greeted
with gasps from the audience.
Paul Marlow, the designer for
Loden Dager, put eyeliner on
his male models.
“They hated it at first and
were joking with each other
how pretty everyone was,”
Marlow recalled. “Then they
went out for a smoke, came
back and were totally into it.”
Franceso Cavallini, vice
president of the Florencebased upscale legwear company Emilio Cavallini, told
Women’s Wear Daily that
there is “a cult following for
mantyhose,” also known as
“brosiery” and “guylons.”
The company introduced
a unisex tights collection in
2009, a knitted blend of cotton and nylon that has more
“breathability” for men, who
perspire more. Purchases by
men now make up 2 to 3 percent of the company’s annual
production of 1 million tights.
Cavallini said that men in
Europe wear tights with shorts
and “for warmth under pants
during cold weather months
and also at home to lounge
around in.” Prints for the tights
include skulls, stars, stripes
and a checkerboard pattern.
“The unisex tights are
mainly black and white,” said
Lisa Cavallini, Francesco’s sister and a company executive,
“but I believe the men buying
these tights want to make a
fashion statement.” Their mantyhose are most popular with
customers from Germany,
France, Scandinavia, Canada
and the United States.
Can tights be manly? As the
“Robin Hood: Men in Tights”
song goes, “We’re men, we’re
men in tights; we roam around
the forest looking for fights.”
A website dedicated entirely
to men’s hosiery, e-MANcipate.
net, offers an illustrated guide
on how to put on pantyhose:
Step 1: “Take a seat. Be sure that
the nails on your hands are at
least in fine condition.”
I asked pretty 41-year-old
Sara Blakely, who started
Spanx with her $5,000 savings
and just made the Forbes billionaires list as the youngest
female self-made billionaire in
the world, whether mantyhose
were on her agenda.
“I never say never,” she said.
“Men are starting to become
more and more vocal about
what they need. We’ve been
getting calls from stylists who
tell us that A-list actors and
top musicians are squeezing
into our Spanx bodysuits for
women for movies and music
videos. And women are telling
us to please do something for
their husbands and boyfriends,
who are squeezing into large
and extra-large women’s
sizes.” She already sells men’s
undershirts, made of cotton
and spandex, and underpants
for men featuring “a better
designed pouch.”
Perhaps men are emboldened now that the Y chromosome, which has been shedding genes and shrinking for
eons, has steadied itself. The Y
has reached, as science writer
Nicholas Wade put it, “a plateau
of miniaturized perfection.”
Miniaturized perfection in

Shocking Afghanistan killings
W
hat could have been in the
mind of a U.S. Army staff sergeant who military officials
say went methodically from house to
house in Afghanistan on Sunday and
killed 16 Afghan civilians, including
women and children?
Had the stress of war simply made
him snap? Was he seeking revenge for
the recent murders of six U.S. soldiers by
Afghans angry over the accidental burning of some copies of the Quran, Islam’s
holy book? Or was it something else?
We don’t know at this point.
What we do know is that the killings
will spur a backlash in Afghanistan and
will complicate our efforts to root out
terrorism there — efforts which began
with the U.S.-led invasion of Afghanistan
more than 10 years ago after the Sept.
11, 2001, attacks that killed nearly 3,000
Americans. The United States invaded
Afghanistan because the radical Muslim
Taliban regime harbored 9/11 terrorist
Osama bin Laden.
It seems at least possible that our
nation will now speed the planned end
of our combat role in Afghanistan, something that is currently slated to take place
in 2013. The United States plans to have a
continuing role in training Afghan forces
through 2014.
The apparent killings by a U.S. soldier
are shocking not only because of the horror of the acts themselves, but because
they represent such a stark contrast
to the generally courageous and noble
behavior of the overwhelming majority
of our troops.
Whatever comes of these tragic events,
the American people should reject outright any attempt to smear the worthy
service of vast numbers of U.S. soldiers
in Afghanistan.
President Barack Obama rightly said
as much in addressing the shootings:
“This incident is tragic and shocking,
and does not represent the exceptional
character of our military and the respect
that the United States has for the people
of Afghanistan,” he noted in a statement.
There is heartbreak and revulsion over
what the Army sergeant is accused of
doing, and if he is in fact guilty, the punishment should be severe. But it should
not become a pretext for besmirching
the work of our soldiers as a whole,
who have persevered honorably in their
duties despite incredibly difficult circumstances.
At the same time, as bad as things may
be in Afghanistan, we should be extremely cautious about withdrawing too hastily. The Taliban who harbored al-Qaida
before 9/11 are still a force in Afghanistan and could easily rise to power again.
A rapid, disorderly withdrawal of U.S.
forces would only embolden the Taliban
and invite a return to the conditions that
helped precipitate our initial invasion of
Afghanistan.
Naive approach to brutality
It was absurd for former U.N. Secretary General Kofi Annan to believe that
his recent diplomatic efforts would persuade Syrian President Bashar Assad to
enter into negotiations on ending Assad’s
brutal crackdown against his own people.
So far, Assad’s regime is believed to
be responsible for the overwhelming
majority of roughly 8,000 deaths during an uprising that has engulfed Syria
in recent months. Most of those killed
were civilians, and their deaths are
widely believed to have been unjustified.
So Assad’s actions have shown his
mindset: He aims to keep dictatorial
power in Syria no matter what the cost
in innocent human life.
That is why it was so naive for Annan
to think he could convince Assad of the
need for “talks” on halting the oppression in Syria. If anything, Assad intensified his assault on the Syrian people in
the wake of Annan’s visit.
That highlights one of the fundamen-
tal flaws of the U.N.: It seems to feel that
any regime, however vicious, can be persuaded to become peaceful and to promote human rights and freedom through
negotiations.
History both before and since the
founding of the U.N. proves otherwise.
Negotiations and concessions to totalitarian regimes — whether Nazi Germany or
modern-day Syria or Communist North
Korea — only buy them time to redouble
their repression, while innocent people
continue to die.
Syria does not appear to pose a direct
threat to U.S. security, so it would obviously be unwise for our nation to intervene there militarily, however repressive
the Assad regime may be. Difficult as
it is, the Syrian people themselves ultimately will have to find a way to end
Assad’s brutality.
But in the meantime, it is cruel for
the U.N. to hold out the false hope that
its requests for Assad to engage in negotiations create any serious prospect of
bringing peace to Syria.
A year of nuclear scare tactics
The telling thing about recent news
coverage of the anniversary of the tsunami-caused nuclear meltdowns in
Fukushima, Japan, isn’t so much what
the coverage revealed as what much of
it either buried or didn’t bother to report
at all: the actual death toll from the meltdowns.
You see, as with the United States’
Three Mile Island meltdown in 1979,
radiation-related deaths at the Japanese
nuclear plant were ... zero.
Did you know that? You could certainly be forgiven if you didn’t, because so
many of the articles on the anniversary
of the events in Japan didn’t mention
that fact. They were too busy trying to
frighten us all with specters of deadly
nuclear contamination.
The earthquake and tsunami that
caused the meltdowns claimed thou-
sands of lives, of course, and that is a
tragedy. And the meltdowns necessitated the evacuation of tens of thousands
of people to ensure their safety. That
represents a massive disruption of their
lives.
But the absence of deaths linked to
radiation at the Japanese nuclear plant
should, if anything, be cause for recognition that nuclear power is not the energy
bogeyman that its determined opponents
claim it is. It is, in fact, an important and
practical energy source — unlike the
costly solar and wind power that antinuclear activists often prefer.
No one disputes the fact that caution
is key in producing nuclear power. But it
would be a good idea to consider nuclear
energy’s generally solid safety record
before dismissing it in favor of some
“green energy” fad.
ObamaCare at the Supreme Court
In two weeks, the U.S. Supreme
Court is scheduled to hear arguments
on whether the ObamaCare socialized
medicine law is constitutional. A ruling
is expected later in the year.
A majority of the states have sued to
have ObamaCare declared unconstitutional, which it plainly is. Nothing in the
Constitution can be construed as giving
Washington power to force the American people to buy government-approved
insurance or be fined. In fact, the 10th
Amendment explicitly forbids Congress
to assume powers that the Constitution
doesn’t delegate to the federal govern-
ment.
But with Supreme Court justices all
too often willing to impose their personal views in place of a clear reading
of the Constitution, there is no guarantee
that they will overturn ObamaCare, as
they should.
What is guaranteed is that the ruling
— in either direction — will play a role
in this fall’s presidential election. ObamaCare is deeply disliked by the public,
and the eventual GOP nominee should
make it clear that if the court doesn’t
overturn the law, he will seek its repeal
by Congress if he is elected.

When President Bush
asked the Saudis to increase
production, the price of oil
dropped.
Some said speculators are
causing the price increase.
They also are saying that
less oil is now being consumed because of the price
increase in gas.
If we open up new drilling, it will take five years
before production. If we
had done it 10 years ago, we
would be extracting millions
of barrels of oil today.
I say flood the market.
That will accomplish
much to include providing
thousands of jobs; making

Wild animals are not
meant to be pets. They belong
in their natural habitats where
they can learn how to survive
and adapt in nature. They also
should be with their own
kind.
One reason wild animals
should be free is their true
nature can take over any
minute. All of those horrid
accidents that occurred with
chimpanzees and their owners are an example. One second a cute little fur ball, the
next a beast, craving freedom
and doing anything to get it.
The act of violence is different for every animal, but most
end with the same thing. They
all end with injury.
Another reason wild animals shouldn’t be a pet is that
they have a certain environment; for instance, a bee and
its hive, or a monkey and a
jungle. I mean, a monkey
wouldn’t belong in a desert,
just like wild animals don’t
belong in households.
Animals should be free in
their environments and learn
what needs to be learned, not
locked up with humans, being
on a leash or wearing clothes.
It is unnatural and in my opinion wrong!

deplore the use of any service

The current school rezoning issue may not affect you

rezoning could be imposed
on you at any time.
Urge the school board to
vote this Thursday to create
a task force, including residents, to study alternatives:
how other cities cope with
overcrowding, allocating pilot
monies from Volkswagen,
Amazon, etc., received in
lieu of taxes, updating older
buildings, portable buildings
in the short term, etc., and
to develop a master plan for
future growth in Hamilton
County.
Superintendent Rick
Smith is on record saying:
“I am not concerned about
property value.” Hopefully
other elected officials, the
school board that appointed
him, as well as other area
officials are.
By contacting all school
board and county/city officials before Thursday, you
can be heard loud and clear
that these issues do matter when elections come
around.

A local developer plans to
build a $4 million to $5 million
medical office development
at the corner of Gunbarrel
and Shallowford roads.
Local planners Monday
endorsed a plan by Ken
DeFoor, who is behind the
development, provided he
holds a community meeting
to discuss the project before
the Chattanooga City Council votes.
At the Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Agency meeting Monday, DeFoor adjusted his plan
to address traffic and landscaping concerns. He hopes
to put the project in motion
as soon as possible.
“I’m trying to put something in that the neighborhood could possibly go by
and feel good about,” he
said.
The development would
be near the Twinbrook subdivision. Some people living
near the site worry extra
stormwater will flood the
area. Tom Lawson said his
house has flooded once and
he’s had water within an inch
of his home on several occasions.
“It’s no fun when your
house floods,” he said. “No
fun at all.”
DeFoor assured residents
the development’s stormwater would flow away from the
residential units across the
street.
DeFoor plans to build two
French-country-style buildings, one 25,200-square-foot
unit and a slightly smaller
23,400-square-foot office.
The buildings cannot be used
for commercial businesses.

Apple’s huge market clout
likely to draw more scrutiny
By Michael Liedtke
The Associated Press
SAN FRANCISCO — In
everything it does, from product design to business deals,
Apple strives for as much
control as possible.
But as the world’s most
valuable company sets out to
define and dominate the rapidly evolving markets it created with the iPhone and the
iPad, Apple is likely to face
antitrust regulators who want
to curb its power.
Apple’s clout is coming
under scrutiny as the U.S.
Justice Department considers filing a lawsuit against the
company and five U.S. publishers on allegations they
orchestrated a price-fixing
scheme on electronic books.
The involved parties are
trying to avoid a high-profile court battle by negotiating a settlement, according
to The Wall Street Journal.
The newspaper broke the
news last week about the
government’s plans to allege
that Apple Inc. and the publishers tried to thwart e-book
discounts offered by Amazon.
com Inc. and drive up prices
since the 2010 release of the
iPad.
“I think this might be a bit
of a wake-up call for Apple,”
says Ted Henneberry, an antitrust attorney for the Orrick
law firm in Washington.
Apple declined to com-

board to continue as chairman, people familiar with the
matter said in October.
Piech has held significant
influence at VW for decades,
having served as chief executive officer before becoming board chairman. Piech
pushed out then-CEO Bernd
Pischetsrieder at the end of
2006 in favor of his longtime
ally Martin Winterkorn, then
Audi’s chief.
Winterkorn said Monday
that Ursula Piech, whom
he has known for years, is
“very competent” and will
help VW achieve the goal
of passing General Motors
as the world’s largest automaker by 2018.
Hans Michel Piech, Ferdinand Oliver Porsche and
Wolfgang Porsche are also
on VW’s board. Shareholders

each have two board seats.
ment.
The e-book case demonstrates the market leverage
Apple has gained from its
system of Internet-connected
devices that tie into iTunes,
its digital marketplace for
mobile applications, books,
newspapers, magazines, textbooks, movies and music.
“That platform has become
really essential for a lot of
people,” says David Balto, an
antitrust attorney who was
a Federal Trade Commission policy director during
the Clinton administration.
“Apple clearly has gained a
lot of power in a number of
markets.”
Apple has sold more than
315 million iPhones, iPads and
iPods that run on its mobile
operating system, giving it
the keys to a market that will
become increasingly influential as more people buy digital
content for such devices.
Apple’s success has transformed the company from
a technology boutique to a
trend-setting juggernaut in
the past decade. Its annual
revenue has soared from $5
billion in 2001 to $108 billion
last year. About three-quarters
of that revenue comes from
sales of iPhones, iPads and
iPods. The company, based
in Cupertino, Calif., now has
a market value of about $510
billion — more than Microsoft Corp. and Google Inc.
combined.
So far, though, government regulators haven’t paid
as much attention to Apple as
they did to Microsoft during
the 1990s and to Google during the past four years.
Microsoft’s efforts to
maintain and increase its
dominance of personal computer software provoked an
antitrust lawsuit that unsuccessfully attempted to break
up the company.
Allegations that Google
has been abusing its dominance of the Internet search
and advertising markets have
sparked wide-ranging government probes into the company’s business practices in the
U.S. and Europe.
Apple simply may behave
better than some of its rivals,
or it may be doing business in
areas that are so new that government regulators still are
learning how those nascent
markets function, says D.
Daniel Sokol, a law professor who focuses on antitrust
issues at the University of
Florida.
“To attract antitrust attention, you have to be more
than just big. You have to be
big and bad,” Sokol says. “It
was only 2007 when Apple
released the iPhone, and only
2010 when it released the
iPad. The company hasn’t had
that long to be bad yet, if it is
indeed bad.”
“There was the tendency
to make VW into a sort of a
Piech group and that seems
to have advanced,” said Juergen Kurz, spokesman for
German shareholder rights
group Deutsche Schutzvereinigung fuer Wertpaperbesitz. “It leaves a funny taste
in the mouth.”
The world’s second-largest carmaker reported record
results last year.
“Despite all the uncertainties, we remain cautiously
optimistic for the coming
months,” Winterkorn said
Monday at company headquarters in Wolfsburg, Germany. “Our goal for operating
profit is to repeat the high
level we achieved in 2011.”
Winterkorn’s total compensation nearly doubled last
year to 17.5 million euros from
9.33 million euros in 2010.
Volkswagen’s fourth-quarter earnings before interest
and taxes fell 0.9 percent to
2.29 billion euros. The namesake brand’s operating profit
in the period fell 13 percent to
540 million euros, while the
Seat brand’s loss widened to
124 million euros from 93 million euros a year earlier.
“The core business is in
reverse” as losses accelerated at Seat, and profitability at VW declined in the
fourth quarter, said Arndt
Ellinghorst, a London-based
Credit Suisse analyst with an
“outperform” rating on the
shares. “It tells me that VW
is not immune to Europe.”
Volkswagen will introduce
40 new and upgraded models this year to help counter
an anticipated fifth straight
annual decline in Western
European car demand.
VW aims to outpace the
“low single-digit” growth
rate in the global car market
this year, sales chief Christian Klingler said last week
in Geneva. The company
sold a record 8.27 million

Horton said the project
would be implemented in
phases with apartments and
stores being built first.
Despite his assurances,
area residents continue to
raise environmental, traffic
and economic concerns with
the project.
Other shopping centers
along Highway 153 have
empty storefronts, raising
concerns about whether
a new center would bring
in new business, or simply
draw retailers and commercial businesses from other
developments.

vehicles in 2011. The German
company has expanded production of SUVs such as the
VW Tiguan and Audi Q5 to
meet demand in the U.S. and
China, its largest market.
The German carmaker
has budgeted a record 62.4
billion euros under its rolling five-year business plan
to invest in factories and new
models, with an additional 14
billion euros earmarked for
its joint ventures in China.
Future growth may also come
from pending mergers.
VW is exploring options
to combine with majority
shareholder Porsche after
scrapping plans last year
because of legal tangles.
VW is closing in on a deal to
purchase the remaining 50.1

gallons of polluted water

according to Gregory Vickrey, director of the North
Chickamauga Creek Conservancy.
Before Horton’s project
can move forward, it must
gain zoning approval from
the Chattanooga City Council. The Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Commission, which
advises the city on zoning
matters, will consider Horton’s request in April. If
approved, Horton said, work
could begin in the spring of
2013.

PepsiCo
revamps
executives
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — PepsiCo
Inc. revamped its management
Monday in a move intended to
strengthen its lineup of potential successors to CEO Indra
Nooyi and leverage its scale
as a global company.
The restructuring puts
John Compton, who heads
the company’s Americas foods
division, in charge of all the
company’s global groups in
the new role of president.
PepsiCo said Compton also
will work with its regional
groups for Europe, Asia, the
Middle East and Africa to build
brands, develop new products
and cut costs. Compton, who
is 50, started his career with
PepsiCo when he was 22.
Brian Cornell, who was
president and CEO of WalMart Stores Inc.’s Sam’s Club
division, will take over for
Compton as CEO of PepsiCo
Americas Foods. The unit
includes Frito-Lay and Quaker
foods and snacks businesses.
Cornell, 52, previously
held management positions
at Pepsi, including president
of its Tropicana brand and its
Europe and Africa beverage
businesses, before leaving the
company in 2004.

The Associated Press
DETROIT — Federal safety regulators are investigating
complaints that accelerators
can stick in Ford Tauruses from
model years 2005 and 2006.
The investigation, opened
Wednesday, covers an estimated 360,000 of the sedans.
The probe could lead to a
recall, but so far none has been
ordered by National Highway
Traffic Safety Administration,
a federal safety agency. The
investigation does not include
a nearly identical car, the Mercury Sable.

No businesses have signed
leases for the space, but he
expects to have one medical
office commit if the project

Erlanger East and several
other medical sites sit nearby.
DeFoor called his space ideal
because patients can access the
offices without driving through
the often busy, heavily commercial parts of Gunbarrel.

NFL: Peyton Manning the featured target as free agent period begins, D3

BASEBALL: Beltran helps the Cardinals defeat the Braves, D3
Move 1-bid
title games
to final day
My father simply loves
college basketball.
Beyond his faith, my
father’s list is family, job
and then college hoops
(and some would say that
order varies occasionally
since the man was late for
his own wedding because
UNC-Davidson went
down to the wire in an
Elite Eight game 43 years
ago this Thursday).
Anyway, each year
leading up to the NCAA
draw he
says in his
direct and
purposeful way,
“I think
it’s going
to be an
interesting
tournaJay
ment,” and
Greeson
when fillCommentary
ing out a
bracket he
says in an equally direct
manner, “That’s why they
play the games.”
After a crazy Sunday
that featured a slew of
big-time conference titles
followed by the Big Dance
card that will be the
highlight of the gambling
calendar (more than $12
billion — yes billion with
a “B” — is expected to be
wagered, with more $3
billion of that from the
100 million people who
fill out brackets), here are
a few observations after
the dust settled.
— First, let’s discuss
the conference tournaments. No not the winners, because frankly, who
cares, right? There should
be zero major conference
tournament finals on
Selection Sunday. Nada.
If you think the college
basketball regular season
is marginalized by the Big
Dance, what about the
SEC tournament final? If
someone mentions Vanderbilt this morning, are
you more apt to know
that by beating Kentucky
on Sunday the Commodores won their first SEC
conference title since
1951 or that they will play
Harvard in the smartest
NCAA first-round game
of all time?
This is an easy fix,
too. Simply flip the order.
Have the power conferences play on the weekend before Selection Sunday. That would give fans,
players and coaches some
time to savor the moment.
Let the one-bid leagues
have Selection Sunday all
to themselves. It would
put the Southern Conference final and its ilk on
CBS or ABC rather than
ESPNU or The Ocho or
wherever it may be.
Plus, the one-bid
leagues are playing for
their lives, which secures
win-or-go-home stakes.
Lady Vols face Skyhawks
By Beth Rucker
The Associated Press
The Associated Press
UT’s Pat Summitt, with assistant Dean Lockwood, will be coaching against her alma mater.
KNOXVILLE — The Tennessee Lady Vols pledged to
return to the Final Four this
season. First they must get past
coach Pat Summitt’s alma mater
and maybe top-ranked Baylor.
The Lady Vols (24-8) drew a
No. 2 seed in the NCAA tournament Monday night and will
face 15th-seeded UT-Martin (238), where Summitt played from
1970 to ’74. They will meet Saturday in Chicago as part of the
Des Moines regional along with
undefeated No. 1 seed Baylor.

“How about UT-Martin?”
Summitt said after she and the
team watched the selection
show at her home. “I never
would have thought about that,
but it’s real neat. I like my alma
mater, but I like winning and
moving on better.”
Tennessee, which is 13-2 alltime against the Skyhawks (the
losses while Summitt played)
has been in every NCAA tour-
nament and has failed to reach
the round of 16 only once. The
current Lady Vols pledged to
return to the Final Four this season after a three-year absence
and to win a ninth national
championship for Summitt,
who announced in August that
she had been diagnosed with
early-onset dementia.
The five seniors were part
of the team that suffered the
program’s only first-round loss
in 2009, and they never have
been to the Final Four. No Lady
Vols class has graduated without getting there at least once.
Vols ‘want to compete’
Golden, teammates
disappointed but
serious about NIT
By Patrick Brown
Staff Writer
KNOXVILLE — The Tennessee Volunteers can find motivation in a potential trip
to the big city and the chance to play in one
of basketball’s most famous arena.
The Vols also could look further down
the road and build toward avoiding the feelings that came with Sunday’s night exclusion from the NCAA tournament. However
they gear up for tonight’s National Invitation Tournament opener against visiting
Savannah State, the message from players
before Tuesday’s practice had a similar
tone.
“I think any time you play, you want to
compete, so that’s what we’re going to do,”
said point guard Trae Golden. “We can’t
hang our heads about anything. We just
have to continue to play hard, go out here
and compete. All these teams are very good
teams, too.”
After a late-season surge that put them
on the NCAA tournament bubble, the Vols
certainly were disappointed in a one-anddone trip to the SEC tournament. While
it’s not known if a win there might have
vaulted them into the Big Dance for a seventh straight year, the challenge is moving
past that emotionally and realizing what’s
at stake in the secondary tournament.
First-year UT coach Cuonzo Martin
expects his team will handle that challenge.
“I think the biggest key,” he said Sunday night, “is just playing hard and being
hungry, because I think once the ball is
tipped and you get after it, as a competitive basketball player you just start playing
basketball at that point. This is not a team
where you have nine or 10 seniors on the
team. We’ve got guys that are still hungry
to play and be successful and be a part of
this program.”
Even with the chance at playing two
games in New York City’s Madison Square
Garden by winning tonight and two more
times, Martin hopes his team considers
an even bigger picture. With key guards
such as Golden, Skylar McBee and Jordan
McRae returning along with the inside duo
of Jeronne Maymon and Jarnell Stokes, the
process of building toward next year can
continue tonight.
“You’ve got the majority of your roster
coming back,” Martin said. “Guys are hungry to compete and be successful.”

Ooltewah High School basketball

“I’m just happy to be making a

The Owls, making their first

but they’ve also had a tough journey to get to this point. That spans

Georgia football coach
Mark Richt’s contract was
extended Monday for three
more years.
Georgia football coach Mark
Richt has a new contract extension
and another cornerback in trouble.
Richt is receiving three more
years to his existing contract, which
gives him a five-year total that runs
through the 2016 season. The dean
of Southeastern Conference football
coaches has an 11-year mark of 10638 that includes four SEC East titles
and league championships in 2002
and ’05.
He also has led the Bulldogs to
10 wins in 11 tries against state rival
Georgia Tech.
“I’m excited about the new
contract,” Richt said Monday at a

news conference. “I’ve never really
changed my stance on how I feel
about Georgia from the first day I
got the opportunity to be here. My
goal and my wife Katharyn’s goal
was to build our life in Athens, raise
our children here and finish my
coaching career here.”
Richt’s current salary is $2.81
million annually. Financial details
of the new contract are still being
finalized.
“The extension is a statement
that we are excited to have Mark
as our coach and that he is excited
about being at Georgia in the years
to come,” Bulldogs athletic director

CFC set to start soccer academy
By John Frierson
Staff Writer
By Jenna Fryer
The Associated Press
CHARLOTTE, N.C. —
The court of public opinion
has long been divided on
Chad Knaus. The NASCAR
crew chief is considered
either a world-class cheater or a masterful innovator
— maybe even a combination of both.
An appeals committee
will get its say today, when
Knaus goes before the
National Stock Car Racing
Appeals Panel to fight a
six-race suspension handed down by NASCAR after
five-time champion Jimmie
Johnson’s Daytona 500 car
failed its first inspection.
Many believe his reputation is at stake. It’s not.
Those who follow NASCAR made up their minds
about Knaus somewhere
around suspension one,
two, three or four.
Besides, he doesn’t much
care what anyone thinks
about him.
“As far as my reputation goes, I’m not too concerned about that,” he said.
“What we want to do is go
out there and do the best
thing we can for Hendrick
Motorsports, the best thing
for [sponsor] Lowe’s and
try to win races and championships.”
Nobody has been better
at that than Knaus over the
last decade.
He guided Johnson to a
record five straight championships and 53 race victories since the two were
paired in 2002 by team
owner Rick Hendrick.
Knaus is not credited with
two other victories Johnson
earned while Knaus was
suspended, including the
2006 Daytona 500. Knaus
had been kicked out of
SpeedWeeks by NASCAR
in ’06 for alterations found
on the car following Johnson’s qualifying lap.
This latest incident is his
first infraction since 2007,
when he sat out six races
for flaring out the front
bumpers of Johnson’s car at
Sonoma. But should it stand
following today’s appeal, it
will be his fourth suspension as a crew chief since
2001. A two-race suspension in 2005 was reduced
on appeal to 90 days probation.
So how does this keep
happening? And is Knaus
really arrogant enough to
believe he can pull a fast
one on NASCAR’s inspectors time and time again?
Doubtful.
Knaus is one of the most
driven crew chiefs in NASCAR history, and no one
would deny he’s made tremendous personal sacrifices
in his quest to win every race
entered. He’s 40 years old,
single, childless and eats,
sleeps and breathes racing.
Knaus skipping preseason testing this January
to take an African safari
was considered news.
He makes it his personal
mission to find every gray
area in the NASCAR rule
book and exploit it to his
gain. When it landed him
in hot water time and time
again, he had to re-evaluate
his approach and inch closer
to the line of acceptability.
Now he’s crossed it again
— but that’s according to
NASCAR, because Knaus
maintains he wasn’t cheating. NASCAR ruled the
sheet metal between the
roof and the side windows
had been illegally modified;
Knaus said that was determined by a visual inspection and the car never even
made it to the templates.
Woods watch back
to physical issues
By Doug Ferguson
The Associated Press
DORAL, Fla. — The
speculation at the start of
the year was when Tiger
Woods would win.
Now it’s when he can
play again.
The sequence Sunday at
Doral was troubling. Woods
hobbled. He
changed his
shoes at the
turn. He
began lifting his left
leg to try
to flex his
ankle. He
limped. And
a f te r o n e Tiger
last power- Woods
ful swing that produced a
321-yard drive on the 12th
hole, he winced and walked
over to Webb Simpson to
tell him he was done for
the day.
“He just shook my hand
and said, ‘I’ve got to go in.’
You could tell he was hurting,” Simpson said.
To what degree, only
Woods knows. And when
he does, it becomes a matter of how much information he will share.
He said his left Achilles’
tendon — the same one
that caused him to miss
two major tournaments
last year — felt tight as he
warmed up on the practice
range before the final round
of the Cadillac Championship, and it got worse from
there.
Woods plans to get it
evaluated this week.
The Masters starts in
24 days. That is the one
major he has never missed.
Augusta National is where
so many expected him to
resume pursuit of the 18
majors won by Jack Nicklaus, the only record that
really ever mattered to
Woods, who has been stuck
on 14 since the 2008 U.S.
Open.
Beyond that benchmark,
however, comes another
question that no longer
seems as ludicrous as the
injuries keep piling up.
Will Woods ever win
again?
Until Sunday, he was
making big strides in that
direction. He ended last
year with an unofficial win
in his Chevron World Challenge against an 18-man
field, with birdies on the
last two holes. He started
this year tied for the 54hole lead in Abu Dhabi and
finished two shots behind
Robert Rock. Only a week
ago, he shot his lowest final
round ever — a 62 that was
punctuated with a 5-iron
over the water to within
eight feet of the hole for an
eagle that put a brief scare
into Rory McIlroy.
But he’s not winning.
Worse yet, he’s not giving himself as many chances as he once did.
Woods has played only
32 tournaments since
returning, at the 2010 Masters, from the scandal in
his personal life. He has
missed cuts twice. He has
withdrawn three times. And
he has 21 finishes out of
the top 10 — that’s as many
times out of the top 10 from
the 2004 U.S. Open to his
last official win at the 2009
Australian Masters.
Seavey
leads
Iditarod
By Mary Pemberton
The Associated Press
ANCHORAGE, Alaska
— Dallas Seavey was leading the Iditarod Trail Sled
Dog Race on Monday, but
Aliy Zirkle was close on his
heels, leaving the village of
Koyuk about 20 minutes
later to prevent the son
of 2004 champion Mitch
Seavey from running away
with the race.
“They know at this point
they have got to keep really
close,” race spokeswoman
Erin McLarnon said.
Mushers try to stay
within striking distance of
the leader at this point in
the nearly 1,000-mile race
from Anchorage to Nome.
That’s because mushers are
required to rest their teams
for eight hours in White
Mountain before heading
the final 77 miles to the finish line.
The closer the top teams
can stay to the leader going
into White Mountain the
better chance they have of
winning.
Sixty-six mushers began
the race March 4. The winner will receive $50,400
and a new truck. The total
purse of $550,000 will be
shared by the first 30 finishers.
This year’s winner likely
won’t break defending champion John Baker’s recordbreaking time of 8 days,
18 hours and 46 minutes,
McLarnon said. It appears
the race leaders are moving
about two hours slower this
year.
Aaron Burmeister was in
third place Monday morning, more than two hours
behind Seavey. Baker was
in fourth.
McLarnon said she
expects the race winner to
cross the finish line sometime today.

NFL quarterback Peyton Manning waves to fans as he leaves the Cardinals’ training facility in Arizona coach Ken Whisenhunt’s car after meeting with coaches.
NFL free time starts
By Barry Wilner
The Associated Press
Open for business, wild as it might get.
The NFL’s calendar turns toward a new
season today when free agency begins. As
if there hasn’t been enough news with the
Peyton Manning tour, Saints bounties and
veterans being cut by their teams, now
comes the roster feeding frenzy.
Four-time MVP Manning is, of course,
the top free agent after he was released last
week by Indianapolis. So far, he’s met only
with the Broncos and Cardinals.
Manning did not show at the Miami Dolphins’ headquarters Monday despite speculation he would meet with the team.
Dolphins owner Stephen Ross arrived
at the team complex at midmorning, and
several players — including quarterback
Chad Henne — showed up around the same
time to work out. Henne is a free agent and
not expected back this season.
A media stakeout at the complex began
when a local TV station camera crew
arrived at 4 a.m. Half a dozen TV cameras and a handful of reporters eventually
gathered across the street. They weren’t
allowed on the team’s property, but a Dolphins official brought out water, pizza and
napkins.
Curious motorists occasionally pulled
up to ask for updates.
While Manning is pursued, many other
game-changers, such as Ray Rice, Wes
Welker, Matt Forte and DeSean Jackson,
were given franchise tags and will require
compensation if they switch teams.
Still, there are dozens of enticing options,
from Mario Williams to Mario Manningham, from Vincent Jackson to Matt Flynn.
“You go into pro free agency to try to
address a need, hopefully not needs,” Jaguars general manager Gene Smith said.
“You want to get a couple of players out of
it that can come in here and help you right
away. You’re looking for a quality starter
or maybe trying to fill a situational role on
your team. But filling huge holes, that’s not
where you want to be.”
Addressing those needs is best done
in the draft. But that grab bag isn’t until
late April, by which time many teams will
have spent many millions of dollars on free
agents.
Several others will let players walk to
clear salary-cap space. Monday, the Redskins released safety Oshiomogho Atogwe,
who signed a five-year, $26 million contract just before the NFL lockout began
last March. They also cut veteran fullback
Mike Sellers.
A few teams were busy placing tenders
on restricted free agents to avoid losing
them without compensation. The Steelers
did so with Pro Bowl receiver Mike Wallace
and five others.
The Bills did the same with offensive
linemen Chad Rinehart and Kraig Urbik.
San Francisco tendered cornerback Tramaine Brock and linebacker Larry Grant.
Beltran helps Cardinals defeat Braves
third on Prado’s single to
right and scored when Chipper Jones grounded into a
double play.
After the Cardinals tied
it in the second, Atlanta
scored twice in the third
against reliever Joe Kelly.
Andrelton Simmons led off
with a walk, stole second
and scored on Prado’s RBI
single. Prado, who had three
hits, came around on Freddie Freeman’s single.
The Associated Press
JUPITER, Fla. — Carlos
Beltran has recovered from
the flu and is ready to get
back to playing ball for the
St. Louis Cardinals.
Beltran went 2-for-4 in
his return, with singles in the
third and seventh innings on
the first pitch of each at-bat.
The 34-year-old outfielder
saw only five pitches in four
at-bats during the Cardinals’
5-4 split-squad win over the
Atlanta Braves on Monday.
“Physically, I feel fine,”
Beltran said in regard to
the flu. “I’m just happy to
be able to get out there and
face live pitching and get a
feel for the game.”
However, he still is experiencing shoulder soreness
and is expected to be the
Cardinals’ designated hitter
again today when they face
his former team, the New
York Mets.
“Right now everything
looks fast to me. The game
looks real fast,” Beltran said.
“The only way that will go
away is just by playing.”
Kolten Wong singled in
the winning run with two
outs in the ninth inning for
the Cardinals.
The teams combined to
walk 19 batters. Starter Brandon Beachy issued five of
the 12 walks for the Braves,
who are 1-10 this spring.

Braves starting pitcher Brandon Beachy throws against
the Cardinals on Monday. St. Louis won 5-4.
“It was pretty terrible,”
Beachy said. “I was struggling to throw strikes at
times. I was trying to make
adjustments, and they are
just not coming as quickly
as I need them to.”
After a smooth f irst
inning, Beachy’s command
faltered in the second. He
allowed one hit and three
walks, including Erik Komatsu to bring in the Cardinals’
first run. Beachy walked two
in the third.
“I knew what I was trying to do. It just wasn’t happening,” said Beachy, who
wanted to stop his head from
moving so much during his
delivery.
Cardinals starter Jaime
Garcia allowed one run,
three hits and two walks.
Only 21 of his 40 pitches
were strikes.
“I think it was just one of
those days where I was just
not very good,” Garcia said.
Jason Motte was credited
with the win. Cory Gearrin
took the loss.
The Braves led off with
back-to-back singles by
Michael Bourn and Martin
Prado. Bourn advanced to

Knaus doesn’t
fret ‘reputation’
national team before founding his
academy in 1997.
CFC board member Krue Brock said
the plan wasn’t to create an academy
when the amateur club that plays in the
National Premier Soccer League was
founded four years ago.
“It was one of those things where
the way things were playing out here,
it almost necessitated it more than us
thinking about doing it,” he said. “We
weren’t pushing for this on our own, it
was something we were being encouraged to do [following the summit].”
McDaniel said the academy’s managing board, which will be separate
from the CFC board, is still being put
together.

Jimmi Johnson’s crew chief Chad Knaus passes
NASCAR officials at Phoenix International Raceway.
In an effort to increase player development and unite the local soccer community, the Chattanooga Football Club
is starting an academy.
The application for the youth club
system has been submitted to the Tennessee State Soccer Association and CFC
is hoping to have the program up and
running in time for the 2012-13 season,
general manager Sean McDaniel said.
In February CFC hosted a soccer summit that brought together more than 30
representatives in the area soccer community to discuss player development.
Out of that meeting, McDaniel said, came
the idea for CFC to create an academy.
“We felt like after our soccer summit
that if we created our own youth club,
we could control and manage the player
development in such a way that by the
time they get up into the collegiate ranks
they can be contributors to our team and
even beyond,” McDaniel said.
Some of the aspects of the club are
still developing, but McDaniel said the
older players will compete with teams
from around the region and country,
while the players ages 8-12 will focus
on training.
“Our interest is not bringing home
trophies when they’re 8, 9 and 10,” he
said. “Our interest is by the time they get
to middle school and high school, we’ve
created a soccer foundation for them and
a culture of playing the game properly,
which then can lead to success.”
One of the coaches CFC has hired
to work the academy’s players is Pedro
Kozak, who runs the Premier Soccer
Academy in Chattanooga. Kozak played
professionally in Argentina and also
coached the Canadian under-17 boys

Grad rates better for NCAA tourney teams
By Kyle Hightower
The Associated Press
ORLANDO, Fla. — The gap
between graduation rates for white
and black players at schools in the
men’s NCAA basketball tournament shrank this year — the first
such decline since 2009 — according to a study released Monday.
The annual report by The Institute for Diversity and Ethics in
Sport at the University of Central
Florida shows black players’ graduation rates increased from 59 percent to 60 percent in 2012, while
white players’ dropped from 91 percent to 88 percent. The disparity
was 22 percentage points in 2009.
The overall graduation rate for this
year’s tournament teams increased
from 66 to 67 percent, and there was
a 3 percent increase in teams graduating half their players.
Primary study author Richard
Lapchick said the improvements
were encouraging but stressed that
the drop in racial disparity was in
part because of the slight decrease
in the graduation rates of white athletes. Still, any lessening of the gap
is positive, he said.
“I think since we got involved
with [U.S. Secretary of Education]
Arne Duncan and [NAACP president] Ben Jealous three years ago
there’ll be a closer attention paid to
numbers released today,” Lapchick
said. “I think for the NCAA and the
colleges and universities, the last
thing they want is federal intervention of any kind.”
Information was collected by
the NCAA from member institutions for the study. The institute
reviewed the six-year graduation
rates of each school’s freshman
class, or Graduation Success Rates,
then calculated a four-class average
or Academic Progress Rate.
The NCAA created the APR in
2004 to improve graduation rates,
disciplining schools in the form of
lost scholarships when they don’t
meet the NCAA standard for academic performance. Under the previous NCAA structure, teams that
score below 925 lose could up to 10
percent of their scholarships. Poor
performance over time could lead
to harsher penalties.
After last year’s report, Duncan,
Jealous and Lapchick were critical of some of the poor graduation
rates and APRs from schools that
qualified for the men’s NCAA
tournament. A Knight Commission analysis showed 10 of the 68
teams in the men’s tournament in
2011 didn’t meet the NCAA’s APR
goal of being on track to graduate at
least 50 percent of their players.
Duncan called for the NCAA to
ban basketball teams with graduation
rates below 40 percent from competing in the NCAA tournament.
The NCAA responded in October by adopting a new standard
that raises the APR standard across
Division I to 930, equal to a 50 percent graduation rate. It includes a
provision that bans all teams below
that from participating in the postseason, including all NCAA tournaments and football bowl games
for the following year if they don’t
have a two-year average score of
930 or a four-year average of 900
on the annual APR.
Teams that receive three straight
years of historical penalties (below
900 APR or 45 percent GSR) will
face potential scholarship and practice restrictions as well.
Under the newly adopted NCAA
standard, 13 teams in this year’s
field, including defending champion
Connecticut, have APRs below 930,
meaning those teams would not be
eligible for postseason participation under the future NCAA rules.
Other prominent programs below
the 930 mark this year include Syracuse and Florida State.
UConn is facing a ban as early
as next season.
Numbers for the 2010-11 school
year don’t officially come out until
May, but UConn scored 826 for
2009-10, and it is projected to be
975 this year, for a two-year score
of 900.5.
Last month UConn asked the
NCAA to impose alternate penalties, including playing a shorter
schedule next season, forfeiting the
revenue awarded to the Big East for
participating in the 2013 tournament
and changing the two-year reporting window for 2013 eligibility to
the 2010-11 and 2011-12 seasons.

Scouting report
Tennessee opens what it hopes is a three-game run to the NIT semifinals
at Madison Square Garden in New York City. First up is Savannah State, the
Mid-Eastern Athletics Conference regular-season champion that was upset
in the MEAC tournament quarterfinals by eighth-seeded Hampton. Horace
Broadnax, in his seventh year as the Tigers’ coach, was a teammate of Patrick Ewing on the powerful mid-1980s Georgetown teams. The Volunteers
have lost in each of their past three NIT openers (2004, 2003 and 1996).
Key matchup
The Vols have made defense their calling card this season, and Savannah
State is pretty good there, too: The Tigers allow just 59 points per game
and limit opponents to less than 30 percent shooting from 3-point range.
In five games against major-conference competition, though, Savannah
State allowed an average of 78 points per game. The Tigers lost by an
average of 26 points against Georgetown, Indiana, Georgia Tech, Wisconsin and Arkansas before winning 14 MEAC games.
— Patrick Brown
Martin saw success in a
lesser tournament pay off a
season later while he was
Missouri State’s coach, but
the Vols can look inside
their own league for an
example of what effects an
NIT run can have. In reaching the NIT title game last
season, Alabama proved
its should have been in the
NCAA tournament while
also gearing toward this
season. Like the Crimson
Tide, 2011 NIT semifinalists
Wichita State and Colorado are in this year’s NCAA
field.
In three of his first five
years at Memphis, Kentucky coach John Calipari
made deep NIT runs. The
Tigers reached the 2001
and won the tournament
in 2002. After another run
to New York City in 2005,
Memphis went to two Elite
Eights, the NCAA title game
and a Sweet 16 the next four
powerhouse program. We
have a formidable and challenging foe in front of us.”
McKillop is making his
sixth trip to the NCAA
tournament as Davidson’s
coach. Stephen Curry led
the Wildcats to the Elite
Eight — and within a bucket
of the Final Four — in their
last trip in 2008.
The University of Tennessee at Chattanooga
represented the SoCon in
2009, and Wofford did so in
2010 and 2011. The Terriers
are headed to the College
Basketball Invitational this
year.
McKillop said there are
no comparisons to be made
between the 2008 team
and this season’s Wildcats
because Curry is playing
for the Golden State Warriors and there is no similar
star this time. But they do
have the two SoCon players of the year. The league’s
coaches selected forward
De’Mon Brooks (16 ppg) as
their MVP, and the media
selected forward Jake Cohen
(14 ppg).
“They do a little bit of
everything, and when you
have two guys who do a little
bit of everything, you’re able
to cover your bases,” McKillop said. “We get superb
output from our interior
players because they’re as
versatile as they are.”
Their efforts against Louisville will be crucial. But
for Davidson to pull off an
upset, guards Nik Cochran
and JP Kuhlman must handle Louisville’s pressure
defense.
“Louisville has guys
who can play in the NFL,”
McKillop said. “Their ability to cover distance is outstanding. They attack space
defensively and can make a
team hesitant.”
That’s a lot less relaxing
than returning to a quiet
campus.

seasons.
“I think the things that
Tennessee did all year, I’m
still convinced they’re an
NCAA team,” Calipari said
on Monday’s SEC coaches’
teleconference. “I’m just
telling you. I would suggest that they will have a
good run in the NIT if they
choose that. See, a lot of
teams go in there and are
mad about having to go play
in the NIT.
“I’ve had teams that
loved it because where we
were at that time, we were
trying to make statements.
Our teams went in with
something to prove. My
hope is our teams from this
league that are in the NIT
have something to prove.”
The Vols at least are talking that way. The next step
is acting on those words.
“Sometimes you’ll
probably see a team who
doesn’t want to play in the
NIT because they thought
should have been in the
NCAA,” Golden said. “But
I think that if we go out
here and play with the same
intensity as if we were in
the NCAA without thinking
about anything like that, I
think we’ll be fine. I think
you take [your disappointment] out on the court. I
think you play with a chip
on your shoulder to show
everybody that you should
have been in the NCAA
tournament.”

INDIANAPOLIS — The
NCAA will provide $400,000
to help fund a study into the
effects of head injuries in
sports.
The National Sport Concussion Outcomes Study
Consortium plans to study
more than 1,000 male and
female college athletes
who compete in 11 sports
at three schools. Researchers hope to track those
athletes after their college
careers end and examine
the long-term effects of
head injuries in hopes of
gaining a more comprehensive understanding about
brain injuries.
Concussions have become
a major concern in many
professional sports in recent
years, and the NCAA has
issued schools a list of best
practices to deal with head
injuries.
Sure, UK and Vandy each
wanted to win Sunday, but
each knew that there was
more hoops to be had. (Plus,
by flipping the power conference tournaments and
the mid-major tournaments,
the smaller leagues will get
more invested interest from
the bubble big boys.)
— Second, Cuonzo Martin’s Tennessee Volunteers
played their worst game in
their biggest game, shooting
terribly in Friday’s bubblebusting loss to Ole Miss. Hey,
it happens to everyone, and
this happened to UT. That
The Conz had them even in
position to be considered
was a huge accomplishment
with a team picked 11th in the
SEC in November. Plus, UT
got a No. 1 seed in the NIT
and figures to be among the
favorites in that draw.
— Third, did anyone else
notice the lack of bellyaching at the committee this
year? Not surprisingly, we
have three theories on this.
First, we believe that the talking heads on CBS and ESPN
were informed that there
would be minimal NCAAbashing this year. Call it a
conspiracy if you want, but
there was very little from
the Seth Greenberg Memorial Camera where a dejected
coach was asked how he felt.
(That’s named in honor of
Greenberg, the Virginia Tech
coach, who has had his bubble popped something like 49
consecutive years.) Second,
the committee did a pretty
solid job of getting the draw
correct, and most of the field
was pretty clear-cut. Finally,
let’s call it the VCU aftershocks. Many of the big-time
college hoops folks bashed
Virginia Commonwealth getting into the field last year,
and we all remember how
they went from the Dayton
play-in game to the Final
Four. Even ESPN ace Jay
Bilas bagged on the Rams,
and there was certainly more
than one serving of crow
tossed around by VCU.
— Someone asked last
week about a sports bucket
list, and here’s one to add:
Going to Las Vegas for the
first two days of the NCAA
tournament and wall-to-wall
basketball. And that would
most definitely make for
an interesting tournament,

Staff Writer
University of Tennessee at Chattanooga football
coach Russ Huesman said he
was very happy to add Baylor place-kicker Henrique
Ribeiro to UTC’s signing
class, which is now up to 16
players. Ribeiro signed with
the Mocs on Monday.
Ribeiro is not only talented, Huesman said, but he
will bring some depth to the
kicker/punter positions. UTC
already has a scholarship
kicker, Nick Pollard, on the
roster. Pollard was named to
the Southern Conference AllFreshman team last season.
“Obviously [Ribeiro] is
an excellent kicker and he’ll
bring a lot to the table,”
Huesman said. “At our level
you normally have two kicking specialists on scholarship and we decided not to
go with a punter. We got to
thinking about it and he was
too good to pass up.”
The addition of Ribeiro,
the 2011 Tennessee Mr. Foot-
ball Kicker of the Year, will
create some competition at
the position, which Huesman
likes. It will also give UTC an
option in the case of injury.
When Pollard suffered a leg
injury in 2010, UTC eventually had to use wide receiver
Jeff Veres, a former kicker, as
its full-time kicker.
“When you have two you
feel better if something happens,” Huesman said. “We’ve
seen that firsthand. ... If Nick
had gotten hurt [and UTC
didn’t sign Ribeiro], we’ve
got nobody on this team
that can kick a ball through
an upright.”
A Brazilian who has been
kicking only for a couple of
years, Ribeiro had touchbacks
on 49 of his 53 kickoffs for
Baylor in 2011. He made 40
of 41 extra points, and three
of his eight field goals were
from 51 yards or farther.

Familiar No. 1s
Baylor, Connecticut
among women’s top seeds
By Doug Feinberg
The Associated Press
Baylor, Connecticut,
Notre Dame and Stanford
are the No. 1 seeds in the
women’s NCAA tournament.
The Lady Bears will try to
become the seventh team to
go through a season unbeaten. They’ve already topped
the Huskies and Irish this
season at home.
After losing in the regional final last year, junior phenom Brittney Griner and
Baylor have been on a mission all season to try to win
a national championship.
They potentially could be
the first team ever to win 40
games in a year. Coach Kim
Mulkey only cares about one
thing — a second national
title for the school.
“We started hearing
about that, and it’s never
been a goal of ours,” Mulkey
said of winning 40 games.
“Our simple goal is to win a
national championship.”
Standing in the way could
be Tennessee.
The Lady Vols have won
eight national championships but haven’t been to
the Final Four in three seasons. They pledged at the
beginning of the season that
they would not go a fourth
consecutive year without
reaching the Final Four
— something they’ve never
done — and would try to
win a national title to honor
Pat Summitt. The coach
announced in August she’d
been diagnosed with early

The basketball madness
gets started Saturday — the
first step on the way to the

April 1 in Denver.
Connecticut hopes to win
its eighth national championship (tying Tennessee)
and will start with a matchup against Prairie View.
UCo n n coa c h G e n o
Auriemma told the Huskies’
faithful in the preseason that
this team wouldn’t win a
national championship. But
his young team has developed over the past five
months, and Connecticut
looks poised to make another run after beating Notre
Dame for the Big East tournament title.
The Irish also have been
focused on winning a title
after falling just short last
season, losing in the championship game to Texas
A&M, which is a No. 3 seed
in the Raleigh region. The
two teams could meet in the
regional final.
Notre Dame, which will
open up at home against
Liberty, reached the national title game last year by
knocking off UConn in the
Final Four. It was the fourth
straight season that UConn
made the Final Four. The
two teams, who already have
played three times this year,
could meet for a fourth time
in Denver.
The Cardinal also have
advanced four straight seasons to the Final Four, and

Duke embraces second situation
By Joedy McCreary
The Associated Press
DURHAM, N.C. — Duke
coach Joanne P. McCallie
sure sounds up for the challenge of taking her young
team on the road for the
NCAA women’s basketball
tournament.
The Blue Devils received
the No. 2 seed in the Fresno region and will spend
the opening weekend in
Nashville. They will face
15th-seeded Samford, which
punched its ticket by winning the Southern Conference title, next Sunday, with
the winner drawing either
seventh-seeded Vanderbilt
— the host of the subregion-
al — or 10th-seeded Middle
Tennessee State on March
20.
“We absolutely need
hostility and toughness,”
McCallie said Monday
night, shortly after the 64team field was announced.
“We need that. We need to
grow it. ... This is great for
us. This is a situation we
must be in.”
Duke (24-5) received its
fifth No. 2 seed since 2000
after rolling to the Atlantic
Coast Conference regularseason championship and
claiming the top seed in the
league tournament.
That’s despite losing
three starters throughout
the season due to injury
or off-the-court issues, and
they have a roster dominated by freshmen and
sophomores. An upset loss
to North Carolina State
in the ACC quarterfinals
didn’t appear to affect their
seeding.
Getting into the tournament hasn’t been a problem
for the Blue Devils, who
are in the field for the 18th
straight year and 19th time
in program history. They
haven’t been seeded lower
than fifth since 1987.
But Duke hasn’t been to
the Final Four since 2006,
when it was beaten by
ACC rival Maryland in the
championship game a year
before Gail Goestenkors
left for Texas and McCallie
came from Michigan State to
replace her.
McCallie has guided
Duke to the regional finals
in each of the last two years,
falling to Baylor in 2010 and
Connecticut last year. The
Blue Devils have won at
least one game every time
they’ve made the NCAA
tournament.
Duke’s first- and secondround NCAA games were at
Cameron Indoor Stadium in
each of the past two years,
and McCallie said the school
is scheduled to host one
again next year.

Eagles’ Phillips stays busy
6-foot-5, 265-pound Calhoun
brought up his ACT score
(28) and is ranked fifth in
his class (3.98 GPA). He was
named to the All-District 6AA football team and was
a member of the Purple
Pounders’ Class AA state
duals championship team.

Although he had his heart
set on improving his quarterback skills, Signal Mountain’s
Reese Phillips has decided
to squeeze baseball into an
already busy schedule.
“It seems like he has

Eagles football coach Bill
Price said.

215-pounder has drawn
much interest already. He
has been invited to participate in the Elite 11 series
beginning with a regional
on April 20 at Buford (Ga.)
High School. Top performers there would then move
on to the national event in
California.
He also has been invited
to a USA Football regional
competition. He has talked
already with University of
Tennessee at Chattanooga
coaches, but the Mocs might
be outgunned by the number
and quality of other Division
I schools that have expressed
an interest.
“I talked with Duke a long
time the other day,” Price
said, “but Reese probably
gets 20 pieces of mail per
day.”
Letters have come from
Tennessee, Notre Dame,
Wake Forest, Georgia Tech
and Kentucky, among others.
Phillips already has agreed
to attend Mississippi State’s
spring game.
“I talked with Tennessee’s
offensive coordinator, but
he’s on the radar more now
than ever before,” Price said.
“I’ve probably heard more
from Georgia, Mississippi,
Mississippi State, Auburn
and South Carolina than
Tennessee.
“There’s no doubt in my
mind that Reese is a Division I [bowl subdivision]
prospect. He hasn’t decided
where he wants to go and a
lot of people haven’t seen
much of him because he’s
only played 10 games at
quarterback. He’s impressive

“From what I’ve been told
he had a scary day on Friday,
but his mom said Saturday
was a great day and his aunt
said Sunday was a good day,”
the coach said.
Harris, who had signed
with Cleveland State and
was expected to be one of
the area’s top prospects,
is still in a drug-induced

Dews has seizure
on Charlotte trip
By Stephen Hargis
Staff Writer
One day after enjoying
the biggest thrill of his life,
just before returning home
to Chattanooga, D’Marcus
Dews suffered through a
scary setback.
Thanks to the Make-AWish Foundation, the 16-yearold Brainerd High School
student who has been battling brain cancer since last
October flew to Charlotte last
Thursday for a weekend that
included tickets to Friday’s
NBA game between the Bobcats and the New Jersey Nets,
then lunch with former NBA
superstar Michael Jordan at
the Ritz Carlton on Saturday.
But as Dews, his father
Tim, mother Cheketia Flippin and a teenage cousin
were being driven back to the
Charlotte airport, the teenager began suffering a seizure. He was taken by ambulance to a nearby hospital,
where after a series of tests
he eventually was allowed
to return home. But rather
than flying back to Chattanooga as originally planned,
the family was driven home
in an SUV provided by the
Make-A-Wish group.
“I can’t say enough for how
the Make-A-Wish people took
care of us,” Tim Dews said.
“D’Marcus is back home and
resting now. It was scary for
all of us. He hasn’t had any seizures since the first one that
led us to have him tested back
in October, and we’ll go see his
doctor to find out what kind of
tests we need to have now.
“The weekend was really
good up to that point. He was
very excited to get to meet
Michael Jordan. Really he’s
been on top of the world
since Saturday. We all were.
Michael Jordan told him not
to give up, no matter how
difficult things get. ... Jordan
was really a down-to-earth
guy. He took a lot of time to
just talk with D’Marcus, sign
autographs and have pictures
made. It was really special.”
Dalton swimmers shine
By Lindsey Young
Staff Writer
Dalton High School junior
Taylor Dale bettered his United States Olympic qualifying
time in the 100-meter butterfly
in a prestigious national swim
meet at Ohio State University
last weekend. His 14-year-old
Carpet Capital Aquatics Club
teammate Ethan Young, the
youngest competitor in the
field, made two finals and
secured his spot as one of the
fastest risers in the country,
according to CCAC coach
Charles Todd.
Dale, who recently was
named the GHSA Class
AAAA-and-under swimmer
of the year after winning state
championships in the 100 butterfly and 100 backstroke and
being a part of the 200-meter
medley relay championship
team, swam a 57.20 in in his 100
backstroke preliminary heat
in Ohio. In the finals, which
featured reigning Olympic
silver medalist Matt Grevers,
Dale finished seventh with a
time of 57.37. David Plummer
won in 55.01.
“There were a lot of
Olympians in the field,”
said Todd, recently named
the GHSA’s coach of the
year. “Taylor got to swim
right next to Grevers, and
he wasn’t intimidated at all.
He’s 17, and outside of one
other 17-year-old, the rest of
the field was made up of college-age or older guys.”
Young, who finished 21st
overall in the 100 backstroke
and made the “C Group”
finals, also earned raves
from his coach for handling
the pressure of competing
against much older and more
accomplished swimmers.
“He’s the fastest 14-yearold in the country,” Todd
said, “and it was nice to see
him compete against those
guys and to get to meet all
the college coaches.”

Ooltewah (27-4) faces
Memphis Central at 7:45
p.m. EDT Wednesday at
Middle Tennessee State
University in Murfreesboro.
The Warriors (18-9) are
led by Andre Applewhite
Jr., who totaled 59 points
his last two games. The
6-foot-4, 205-pound guard
has two NCAA Division
I offers.
On their way to the
state tournament, the
Warriors beat defending
state champion Craigmont as well as secondranked Ridgeway and
fellow state participant
Memphis East.
“They’ve got a bunch of
big, strong, athletic guys
with big bodies,” Nayadley said. “They’re hard in
transition, but we’re still
trying to do what we’ve
done all season. We’re
going to play our style.
“It should be a fastpaced game.”
There is no fear from
the Owls. Actually, there
was a sense of disrespect
felt by the Ooltewah
seniors when they talked
about their opponent and
the reputations of schools
in Memphis and Chattanooga.
“We know that teams
in Chattanooga are overlooked,” Creech said. “It’s
why we weren’t ranked
any higher than No. 10
all season, but they can
expect us to go hard.
“We can compete with
them.”
Said Moton: “All we’ve
seen is film on them. All
they’ve seen is film on us,
so that’s all we can go by.
“We’re not afraid of
them; we’ll be ready to
play Wednesday.”

Years ago I first saw

becoming childlike can
heal almost any set of disabling memories.
Rodney’s mother was
cold and had a mean
streak. She simply could
not love the boy. His
father traveled most of
his life with a comedy
troupe, and when he and
Rodney finally became
friends, he discovered his
father stayed away from
home just to escape his
wife. Rodney completely
understood.
He soon developed
his “I get no respect”
theme, and many of the
jokes about his abuse and
lack of respect were true.
Somehow it helped him to
tolerate the memories to
use them in his routines.
The stage became his
playground where he
became a child again, and
many comedians talked
about his childlike behavior during his routines. He
finally became fully aware
that his comedy had
become his therapy.

Patchwork hugs
CLAIM TO FAME
Young seamstress completes
first quilt, plans to donate future
projects to needy children
By Casey Phillips
Staff Writer
There’s something comforting about being wrapped
in a quilt. Earlier this year,
7-year-old Maddie Gilley of
Cleveland, Tenn., decided that
if people could benefit from a
patchwork hug, so could dolls.
With a little help from her
grandmother, Nancy Moore,
and an online tutorial for some
of the trickier techniques,
Maddie began sewing her first
doll-size quilt, which she completed in February.
“I basically just told her
the safety points, and she did
it,” Moore said, gesturing to
the finished product, a 2-foot
square of pink and purple
blocks dotted by decorative
stitched hearts.
“I think she did wonderful
— a lot better than I did on my
first quilt,” she added, laughing.
Maddie said that although
some parts of quilting, such
as binding, were difficult, she
enjoyed the experience.
“It turned out better than I
expected,” she said. “It’s really
fun. I can learn new things
whenever I quilt.”
Maddie helped her grandmother with the design of a
second quilt, an 8-foot piece
featuring tiles with traced outlines of her classmates at Yates
Primary School. The quilt was
set to be sold last Friday during a chili dinner and silent
auction to benefit the school’s
Parent-Teacher Organization.
Maddie said she plans to
donate her future projects to
emergency responders to distribute to children in distress.
Her grandmother said Mad-

What happens in four
hearts after West leads the
club king?
North’s three-heart
response was a game-invitational limit raise showing
at least four trumps, 10 to
12 support points and eight
losers.
South’s hand was a borderline raise because of all
those losers, but the 10-card
fit suggested optimism.
If West had only led
something else, a spade
winner could have been
established to provide a discard for the club loser. Now,
though, South seems to
have four unavoidable losers: one spade, two hearts
and one club.
The diamonds need to
be 3-3 and the hearts 2-1
with either opponent having a singleton honor.
After taking the first
trick with dummy’s club
ace, declarer plays a diamond to his ace, cashes the
diamond king, and plays
a third round. When no
one trumps in, he leads
dummy’s last diamond and
discards his last club.
Here, if East ruffs, it
costs the king, and West
later gets only his ace. Or
if West ruffs with his heart
two, South takes the next
trick and plays a trump,
the ace and king crashing
together.

Drug shortages present
worrisome problem
DEAR DOCTOR K: It seems like every day in
the paper I read about doctors and hospitals running out of medicines because the pharmaceutical
companies can’t manufacture enough of them. Why
are we having these problems?
DEAR READER: You
aren’t just imagining this;
the problem really
has gotten worse.
There have
been shortfalls of common drugs
for ADHD,
Dr. K
cancer, pain
Dr. Anthony
and heart
Komaroff
disease.
Like other doctors, I’m frustrated. Understandably, our
patients are scared.
Although drug shortages
are not new, they seem to
be on the upswing. According to The Associated Press,
tracking information from
the University of Utah Drug
Information Service shows
267 newly reported drug
shortages in the United
States in 2011, up from just
58 in 2004. Clearly, this is
not in the public interest.
For example, the drug
methotrexate is in short
supply. The Dana Farber
Cancer Institute, one of the
affiliated centers at Harvard
Medical School, played a
major role in discovering
that this drug could treat
and even cure some kinds
of cancer. Now the institute
can’t get enough of the drug
for its patients.
Many people believe that
“the market” is the best way
to deliver critical human services and products. At least
at this point, it doesn’t seem
to be working. Some of my
expert colleagues here at
Harvard, such as Dr. Jerry
Avorn, favor more regulation by the Food and Drug
Administration.
The FDA surely does
have the authority to monitor the production of medicines. In fact, the closure of
some drug manufacturing
plants because of quality
control problems is contributing to the unavailability of
some drugs.
A larger problem, according to Avorn and others, is
the desire of drug companies to maximize their profit. For example, there have
been many drug company
mergers. One important goal
of some mergers is to shed
“unnecessary expenses”
— which has meant shuttering some manufacturing
facilities. Neither the FDA
nor any other governmental agency has the authority to stop the closing of a
drug manufacturing plant
because the closure might
lead to a shortage of a particular drug. The FDA can
sometimes help ease a drug
shortage. It can approve a
manufacturer distributing
a drug that it has in stock
when the drug has expired
or is close to expiring. The
FDA also can help ramp up
production of hard-to-get
drugs by speeding approval
of new production lines. It
also can look for overseas
sources for specific drugs,
after checking their safety.
The FDA has just announced
it will allow methotrexate
manufactured outside the
U.S. to be sold here.
The FDA has a Drug
Shortage Action Plan. Drug
manufacturers are encouraged to share information
on shortages, but are not
required to do so.
If your doctor recommends a drug that is in short
supply, ask about other medications that might work for
you. Also, your pharmacist
may be able to track down
a source. When a medication is in short supply, be
especially wary of Internet
or faxed advertisements for
alternatives (often highly
priced and sometimes counterfeit products).

Cheating is a form of theft
Q: I cheated my way through school, and now it’s
catching up with me because I’m supposed to know
what I’m doing at work, but often I don’t. I feel so
guilty. A friend of mine said I’d feel better if I told
someone like you about it. I wish I could live those
years over again. It was stupid to cheat. — J.K.
A: I appreciate your honesty about your past, and I
hope your
experience
will be a
warning to
someone
who may
be tempted
Billy Graham to go down
the same road you did. As
you’ve discovered, we only
cheat ourselves when we do
something like this. Eventually it catches up with us.
Why is it wrong to cheat,
whether it’s on a test or in
a business deal? The main
reason is because cheating
is actually a form of stealing. When you cheat on a
test, you’re stealing from
someone who worked to
learn the material; when
you cheat someone in business, you’re robbing them of
something that is rightfully
theirs. The Bible says, ”Do
not steal. Do not lie. Do not
deceive one another” (Leviticus 19:11).
My prayer is that you
will turn to Jesus Christ
and by a simple prayer
of faith confess your sins
to him. Then ask him to
come into your heart and
take control of your life. He
alone can take away your
guilt, and he alone can
help you build your life on
a solid moral and spiritual
foundation. God’s promise
is for you: ”I will forgive
their wickedness and will
remember their sins no
more” (Jeremiah 31:34).
Then ask God to help
you overcome your deficiencies. For example, he
may open the way for you
to take courses to help you
sharpen your skills (perhaps
at night or over the Internet).

we didn’t want to get pigeonholed. So we thought ’What’s

yeah, a hard-R action-comedy! But there was definitely
a little bit of skepticism at

But nothing in the movie
would have worked if Hill
hadn’t found the perfect
actor to play his partner. For
Tatum (“The Vow,” “The
Eagle,” “Fighting”), “21 Jump
Street” was an opportunity to
hit some notes he hadn’t yet
played as an actor.
“I really had no intention of ever jumping this far
down the comedic rabbit

knew I eventually wanted to

a real skill. These guys work
really hard at it. It’s not like

the joke is and what’s funny
and what isn’t. I probably
wouldn’t have done this
movie without someone
as experienced as Jonah.
And Chris and Phil brought
a unique energy to it that
made me feel safe as well.”
Despite his lack of experience with the funny stuff, the
actor proved to be a natural.
In one scene in the film, Hill
is trying to talk on the phone
while Tatum pelts him with
an assortment of rude gestures and objects, including
a rather impertinent stuffed
giraffe.
“That scene was written
as just Jonah talking to a girl

“We did it in rehearsal a million times. But on the set, we

giraffe (sex acts) or anything
else. That’s pure Channing,
based on years of being a
guy. Are you familiar with
Malcolm Gladwell’s 10,000hour theory? I would say that
Channing has become the
world’s expert at messing
with your friends and doing
gross things to them.”
By all accounts, the mood
on the set was convivial:
Everyone in “21 Jump Street”
was tuned into the same
frequency of funny, and the
camaraderie on the set is
reflected in the finished film,
which has earned early raves.
“When you’re dealing
with actors who are as good
as Jonah and Channing and
directors like Chris and Phil
who know how to get the
best out of everybody, it all
becomes about the dance,”
says Ice Cube. “First you
learn your lines, and then
you start to add the ad-libs
and the little nips and tucks
and mold it all together. If
you’re just improvising on
the set, it can get actorly real
fast. We were trying to make
this movie feel natural and
real. The trick is not laugh
when someone hits you
with something you’re not
expecting, because then you
can’t use it. You gotta put
it in your pocket and wait
until they tell ‘Cut!’ and then
laugh. I had to do a lot of that
on this movie.”
My kid is a worry wart — helping your anxious child
By Julia Cook
McClatchy Newspapers
Has your child seemed to
develop a sudden unrealistic
worry about everyday events?
Does he/she constantly seek
out reassurance from authority
figures? Is your child having
trouble sleeping? Does your
child worry about things before
they happen? Are you noticing overly repetitive behaviors?
Does your child experience
constant worries about family,
school or activities?
If your answer is “yes” to
one or more of the questions
above, your child may be
suffering from the effects of
anxiety. Anxiety is considered
to be America’s number one
health problem. It is defined as
a feeling of apprehension and
fear characterized by physical
symptoms such as palpitations,
sweating, irritability and feelings of stress. Although quite
common, anxiety disorders
in children are often misdiagnosed and overlooked. Symptoms of anxiety may manifest
as behavioral problems due to a
child’s inability to express feelings authentically. Fear, worry,
and apprehension are feelings
felt by everyone from time to
time and are considered to be
healthy, but when these feelings keep children from doing
things that they want or need
to do, anxiety can become a
disability.
If you have an anxious child,
here are a few tips that might

Machine.”
help:
■ Genuinely accept your
child’s concerns.
■ Listen to your child’s
perceptions and gently correct
misinformation.
■ Patiently encourage your
child to approach a feared situation one step at a time until
it becomes familiar and manageable.
■ Always try to get your
child to events on time, or early
— being late elevates anxiety.
■ Continually set equal
expectations for all kids anxious or not. Expecting a child
to be anxious will only encour-
age anxiety.
■ Role-play strategies
— how to react in certain situations. — Explore both best
case scenarios and worst case
scenarios using realistic evidence.
■ Build your child’s personal strengths.
■ Help your child organize
their school materials for the
next day the night before.
■ Allow and encourage
your child to do things on his
own.
■ Try not to pass your own
fears onto your child. — Anxious parents often have anx-
ious children.
■ Work together as a team
(family members, teachers,
child, day-care providers etc.)
■ Set consequences —
don’t confuse anxiety with
other types of inappropriate
behavior. Set limits and consequences so that you don’t allow
anxiety to enable your child.
■ Have reasonable expectations.
■ Consult your child’s physician if symptoms persist.
If your child is struggling
with anxiety, it is always better
to be proactive than reactive. If
untreated, symptoms of anxiety in children can lead to an
even more debilitating future.

for the designer’s wares.
The show’s major hook
is that any outfit given a bid
will be available the very next
day either in that department
store or in its online shop. It’s
a little like an “American Idol”
performance being available
on iTunes at the end of each
show. But to date, you can’t
download a miniskirt, so this
is a new wrinkle in the blending of TV merchandising and
entertainment — not to mention rapid-fire garment industry manufacturing.
All of the judging and auditioning for product placement
doesn’t allow much time for
designer backstories. “Fashion
Star” moves at a demon pace,
complemented by frantic
music and oddly paced puffs of
smoke. At the beginning of the

Finding Fido
temporary digs
Los Angeles Times Photo
Aaron Hirschhorn and Karine Nissim started Dog Vacay in their Culver City, Calif.,
home after they had trouble finding a place for their dogs Rocky, left, and Rambo,
while they were out of town.
A few weeks before her
trip, she found Dog Vacay
online and contacted host
Danielle Haffner in Tujunga,
Calif., who invited Steiger
and Joey to her home for a
one-hour meet-and-greet.
During the meeting, Steiger
got a tour, checked that the
home was securely gated and
asked about Haffner’s experience with dogs. The process,
she said, sold her on the concept.
While Steiger was in Thailand, Haffner sent iPhone videos and photos of Joey playing
and kept her updated on how
the puppy was doing.
“He was on vacation while
we were on vacation, so it was
great,” Steiger said. “He got
to play with puppies and run
around like a nut. In fact, I
don’t think he wanted to come
home.”
The website is quickly
becoming a tool for professional dog sitters to advertise
their services and enabling
dog lovers who don’t have
their own pets to spend time
with one.
“I never found I was in a
place with my life where I
could take on a dog full-time,”
said host Lauren Meyer, a 27year-old production designer
who charges $38 a night for
dog-sitting at her 3,000square-foot home in Silver
Lake, Calif. “I was looking for
a way to be involved with the
animal community with a nocommitment-type style.”
Dog Vacay is the latest
start-up from Science, a Santa
Monica tech incubator founded by former MySpace CEO
Mike Jones.
Dog Vacay has seven
employees and takes a service
fee of 3 percent to 10 percent
from each dog-sitting transaction. Hosts who have better
reviews and are booked more
frequently are charged a lower
service fee.
Hirschhorn said the company planned to quickly expand
to other cities and would roll
out iPhone and Android apps
in the next few months.

The next time you’re going
out of town, you don’t have to
leave Fido with your slacker
brother or at a kennel where
the dog might be cooped up
in a cage all day.
With Internet start-up Dog
Vacay, you can drop off your
pooch at the home of a fellow
dog lover. Hosts watch your
pet while you’re away and set
their own rates (usually $15 to
$80 a day).
It’s free to become a member, and more than 600 hosts
have already joined in the Los
Angeles and San Francisco
areas, co-founder and Chief
Executive Aaron Hirschhorn
said. (There are also members in Atlanta and Nashville,
among other cities.)
Hosts share information
about themselves, their homes
and their experience with animals on the website; they’re
encouraged to send photo
updates and review the pets
they’ve watched. Owners also
leave reviews of hosts after
they pick up their dogs.
Hirschhorn founded Santa
Monica, Calif.-based Dog
Vacay with his wife, Karine
Nissim, after they had trouble finding a place for their
dogs, Rocky and Rambo, to
stay. Before launching the
site, the couple tested the
concept themselves, opening
up their Culver City, Calif.,
home to more than 100 dogs
during a nine-month period
last year.
To ensure safety, the company calls hosts and checks
social-media networks such
as Facebook and LinkedIn to
verify their identities. Dog
Vacay also offers training with
an instructional video and has
relationships with local 24hour animal hospitals in case
of emergencies. Insurance
plans are available, and GPSenabled dog collars to track
the pets can be rented.
“We ask about people’s
motivations,” Hirschhorn said.
“If they were truly a bad person who was trying to game
the system, we think that
comes out pretty quickly.”
Valerie Steiger, 54, used
Dog Vacay last month when
she had a two-week vacation
to Thailand and needed a
place to leave her new puppy,
4-month-old Shih Tzu mix
Joey.
“I didn’t want to kennel him
but felt like I didn’t have any
other choice,” the life coach
from Santa Clarita, Calif., said.
“He would have basically been
locked in a cage all day with
two five- or 10-minute playtimes by himself.”

mother who nursed them at
her breast. Another group
had a warm, fuzzy doll with
a baby bottle taped to it.
Another group just had a
simple baby bottle they had
to use on their own.
Tests for monkey maturity were developed and, of
course, the monkeys with
real mothers matured the
most completely and healthily. Those with the dolls
were next, and those who
had to feed themselves and
received no affection were
retarded in all areas of monkey development.
Imagine Rodney with a
cold and unloving mother
and the developmental problems it created for him.
I took pride in him for the
way he overcame his severe
obstacles. When he got married and had two children
and was finally making
it as a comedian, his wife
developed severe health
problems. Rather than see
his children suffer his fate
of no loving mother and
an absent father, he moved
back home and took a job as
an aluminum-siding salesman so he could be with
his children. When they got
older, he resumed his career
as a comedian.
Since he had to be home
a lot, he opened his own
comedy club in his hometown, and it was a financial
success.
After several successful
movies and many appearances on Johnny Carson’s
“Tonight Show,” he was asked
by HBO to do several comedy
specials. He used them as a
chance to help young comedians avoid the years of hard
apprenticeship he had experienced. He created many
future comedy stars.
I love a story that makes
me proud of being a human
and gives me another role
model for my life. I will
always have a very warm
spot in my heart for Rodney
Dangerfield, who proved “it
is never too late to have a
happy childhood.”
