has integrated iPads, shown below, into its curriculum because they are believed to improve social and
communication skills, especially for children with autism.

IPads help students with autism communicate

wo-and-a-half-year-old
Rowan Murray used to get
so frustrated she would
scream and throw tantrums,
even breaking her mother’s
nose in such a fit.
She resorted to such outbursts
because communication is difficult
for her because she has autism.
“She’s not a mean little kid,” said
Rowan’s mother, Meghan Murray.
“She’s a sweet kid. But when you’re
thirsty and you can’t tell anybody,
it’s mentally frustrating.”
With the arrival of an iPad at
Rowan’s school — Siskin Children’s
Institute’s East Brainerd Early Education Center — and the use of her
mother’s iPhone at home, the little
girl now can communicate better
with family and teachers.
Children like Rowan have expand-

ed access to iPads at school thanks
to an anonymous donation, which
funded the technology in all of the
institute’s 21 classrooms at its East
Brainerd and downtown locations.
At Siskin, classrooms are integrated with typically developing and
special needs students learning sideby-side, though teachers and experts
say iPads have shown particular
promise for students with autism.
With the device, teachers use some

and other issues.
Meanwhile, Haslam also
announced that he and the
Tennessee State Employees
Association have struck
an agreement on his proposed changes to civil service laws that will make it
easier to hire and fire state
workers.
“I think everybody agreed
that the system we had was
broken,” Haslam said of civil
service requirements.

PLANNING DECISION
Before a 190-acre
development off state
Highway 153 in Hixson
can be built, the city must
rezone the area. City
planners recommended
against rezoning, citing:
■ Significantly more traffic
along Highways 153 and
U.S. 27.
■ Unacceptable
environmental effects on
nearby land reserves.
■ Vacant commercial
spaces along Highway 153
in need of redevelopment.
■ Insufficient public
transport.

Woman dies after ATV fall
Mother pushes 11-year-old to safety before vehicle topples
By Joy Lukachick

Staff Writer
Christy Price was driving an ATV, her 11-year-old
daughter on the back, when
she accelerated up a steep
hill on a trail in North Georgia’s Chattahoochee-Oconee
National Forest.
She hit a rock and the
ATV began to roll over —
backward.
Price, 35, managed to
shove her daughter off the
four-wheeler before the
machine fell straight back
and landed on top of her,
authorities said. The daughter was uninjured.
Price died 30 minutes
later from her injuries, said
Whitfield County Coroner
Bobbie Dixon, but authorities are waiting on the
autopsy before they report
the exact cause of death.

Siskin Institute teachers welcomed expanding iPad use after
piloting them in their two ESCALATE classrooms, which use a specialized instruction style designed to
focus teaching three skills that children with autism often lack: appropriate play behavior, communication
and social skills.
On a recent morning in an ESCALATE classroom, Rowan taps a small
picture of a blackboard on the glossy
screen of an iPad. Her teacher takes
the cue and walks with her to a kidsized chalkboard, where Rowan gets
busy drawing.

Haslam budget trims
grocery tax, aids jails
NASHVILLE — Gov.
Bill Haslam announced
Monday he is including a
deeper cut in the state sales
tax on groceries as part of an
administration amendment
to his proposed $30.2 billion
spending plan for 2012-13.
The move is just one of
at least $25 million worth
of changes the Republican
governor is making.
Others include boosting
the state’s daily payments to
local jails for housing state
felons from $35 to $37 per
prisoner per day at a cost of
$4 million annually. He also
is restoring $3 million in
funding to family resource
centers, including one operated by Hamilton County
Schools.

City planners recommend blocking a development that would level a
Hixson hillside to create
commercial space twice the
size of Northgate Mall just
miles down the road.
The Chattanooga-Hamilton County Regional Planning Agency cited extreme
traffic and environmental
problems as reasons to
oppose the project, according to a report released
Monday.
Developers want to put
the 190-acre development
near Highways 153 and U.S.
27, which both are projected to reach or exceed traffic capacity within the next
three years. There are no
scheduled improvements
to the roads until 2025.
The addition of 148 acres
of commercial development
and a 42-acre, 280-unit
apartment complex would
exacerbate that problem, the
report states.
“The Regional Planning
Agency staff thinks it is
reasonable for the site to be

to comment Monday.
Police have ruled the
Sunday afternoon death
as accidental, but county
authorities say this isn’t the
first injury or death reported
on the national forest trails.
And they’re frustrated by the
recent death.
“It’s just a rough area,”
said Whitfield County Fire
Chief Carl Collins. “It was
bad enough that probably 10
years ago the National Park
Service bought us a fourwheeler to keep at their station so we have a way to get
to people.”
In the last five years,
emergency crews have
responded to at least eight
injuries from accidents on
ATV trails in the Whitfield
County portion of the Chattahoochee-Oconee National
Forest, said county 911 Director Jeff Ownby. There may be
more accidents with injuries,
he said, and officials with the
national forest may have a
more accurate number.
On Monday, officials with
the Chattahoochee-Oconee
National Forest wouldn’t
comment on the accident,
citing an open investigation.
The Whitfield County
Sheriff ’s Office was called
to investigate the death to
make sure it was an accident,
said Capt. Rick Swiney, but
the sheriff ’s office doesn’t
have any jurisdiction on the
forest trails.

■ HEALTH RANKINGS
About half the restaurants
in Tennessee and Georgia
are fast food outlets — and
local counties such as Bradley, Catoosa, Murray and
Whitfield have even higher
percentages, according to
a health ranking released
today. Coupled with the fact
that 30 percent of Tennesseans and 24 percent of Georgians 20 years and older
report they have no leisure
time physical activity, the
latest health reports don’t
look good for the two states.

Exactly one year to the date,

Chattanooga Police Department Sgt. Tim Chapin was

veteran of the department.
He was killed on April 2, 2011,
during a botched robbery
attempt at the U.S. Money
Shops on Brainerd Road.

NEW YORK — Alec Baldwin is giving marriage another
shot. The actor popped the
question over the weekend to
his 28-year-old yoga instructor girlfriend, Hilaria Thomas.
They began dating last year.
His publicist, Matthew
Hiltzik, made the engagement
announcement over Twitter.
Baldwin, who once starred
in a film called “The Marrying
Man,” turns 54 today and an
engagement, says Hiltzik, is a
“great way to celebrate!”
Baldwin previously was
married to Kim Basinger.
They have a daughter together
named Ireland. He published a
book in 2008 called “A Promise
to Ourselves” about his personal experience dealing with
divorce and his battle with
Basinger over custody of their
daughter.

Tim Robbins living
without his TV
BOGOTA, Colombia —
Academy Award-winning actor
Tim Robbins says his experience directing a play based
on George Orwell’s “1984” has
prompted a life choice as personal as it is political: He’s livhas
ing without a TV.
“I have done an experiment
for the past three years: I got
rid of my television. One of the
things Orwell talks about in the
book ‘1984’ is this thing called
‘the two-minute hate,”’ Robbins
told reporters in Bogota on
Monday.
“People go in front of their
television screens and they
yell at the person they object
to politically. I realized I
had been doing that for two
hours every day during (the
administration of George W.)
Bush. I said, ‘I’ve got to stop
hating.’’’
Robbins’ Actors Gang production of “1984” is among
nearly 200 works being performed during this year’s biennial IberoAmerican Theater
Festival in Bogota.
The production was adapted
by Michael Gene Sullivan from
Orwell’s 1948 dystopian novel
about a totalitarian society
where surveillance is pervasive,
language is a weapon of suppression and TVs are used to
spy on people.
Robbins says he’s inclined
to disconnect from all forms of
mass communication and jettison his cellphone, which easily can be used to track one’s
movements.
“If you have a phone, they
can find you whenever they
want,” he said. “I personally
would like to live on a farm
with a rotary phone.”
Robbins’ “1984” previously
has appeared in festivals in
Europe, Hong Kong, Australia
and the United States.
Willis, wife, Emma ,
have baby girl
Bruce Willis arrives with his wife, Emma Heming, for the Golden Globe Awards in Beverly Hills, Calif.
NEW YORK — Bruce Willis is a father again.
The actor’s wife, designermodel Emma Heming Willis,
gave birth Sunday in Los Angeles
to a baby girl. They named their
daughter Mabel Ray Willis, who
weighed 9 pounds and 1 ounce.
A statement Monday from
Willis’ publicist said the couple
are “overjoyed,” and both mom
and baby are “healthy and
doing beautifully.”
This is the couple’s first
child together. Willis, 57, and
Heming, 33, were married in
2009.
Willis has three daughters,
23-year-old Rumer, 20-year-old
Scout and 18-year-old Tallulah,
from his previous marriage to
actress Demi Moore.
Comedian Ansari
mows lawn in park
NEW YORK — “Parks and
Recreation” star Aziz Ansari
takes his parks persona seriously.
On Monday, the actor and
comedian helped New York
City’s Central
Park get ready
for spring by
lending a hand
mowing its
15-acre Sheep
Meadow on
a riding lawn
mower. Ansari
was assisted
by several park
crew members,
Aziz
also riding
Ansari
lawn mowers.
Central Park Conservancy
spokeswoman Dena Libner
says Ansari helped mow about
an acre of the lawn. It’s used
for relaxing and sunbathing.
The city is reopening all of
its park lawns and ball fields on
Saturday. They’re fenced during
the off-season so the grass can
be hearty in the spring.
Central Park gets more than
250,000 visitors a day.
Ansari portrays parks
employee Tom Haverford on
the NBC comedy show.

Consumers dump cable and satellite for

Slick little $47 invention pulls in up to 953 crystal clear over-the-air digital TV shows Free with no monthly bills
If you live in one of the Chattanooga area zip codes listed below call the special 48-hour hotlines to get Free TV
By Shawn Anthony
Universal Media Syndicate
(UMS) – The Free TV Hotlines are ringing off the hook.
That’s because Chattanooga area residents who find their zip code listed in
today’s publication are getting Free TV
thanks to an amazing razor-thin invention
called Clear-Cast™.
Chattanooga area residents who get
the Clear-Cast by calling the Free TV
Hotlines before the 48-hour order deadline ends can get over 953 crystal clear
over-the-air digital TV shows each year

This is all possible because a U.S. federal law makes TV broadcasters transmit their signals in a digital format, which
allows everyone to receive digital broadcast signals for free with no monthly bills.
These are the over-the-air broadcast
signals that the cable and satellite companies get and then re-transmit to you for a
hefty charge every month.
Here’s how it works. The Clear-Cast’s
advanced design links up directly to
receive local and national shows being

Warm March sets records in U.S.
The Associated Press
IT’S WARMER
The average
temperature in
Chattanooga in
March was 62.9
degrees, which
was 10.7 degrees
warmer than
normal, according
to the National
Weather Service in
Morristown, Tenn.
The average high
was 74.3 degrees
while the average
low was 51.5.
WASHINGTON — Freak
chance was mostly to blame for
the record warm March weather
that gripped two-thirds of the
country, with man-made global
warming providing only a tiny
assist, a federal analysis shows.
For much of March, record
temperatures hit as high as 35
degrees above normal and averaged about 18 degrees warmer
than usual. The United States
broke or tied at least 7,733 daily
high temperature records in
March, which is far more than
the number of records broken
in last summer’s heat wave or in
a blistering July 1995 heat wave,
according to federal records.
“Climate change was certainly a factor, but it was certainly
a minor factor,” Meteorologist
Martin Hoerling said.
He said the bigger issue was
wind patterns. Low pressure in
the Pacific Northwest and high
pressure in New England created a perfect funnel, like the gutter lane in a bowling alley, for
warm air in the Gulf of Mexico
to head north. That air is about
15 to 20 degrees warmer than
the air in the Midwest.
Supreme Court OKs
routine strip searches
The Associated Press
WASHINGTON — Jailers may perform invasive strip
searches on people arrested
even for minor offenses, an
ideologically divided Supreme
Court ruled Monday, the conservative majority declaring
that security trumps privacy
in an often dangerous environment.
In a 5-4 decision, the court
ruled against a New Jersey
man who was strip searched
in two county jails following
his arrest on a warrant for an
unpaid fine that he had, in
reality, paid.
The decision resolved a
conflict among lower courts
about how to balance security and privacy. Prior to the
Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks,
lower courts generally prohibited routine strip searches
for minor offenses. In recent
years, however, courts have
allowed jailers more discretion to maintain security, and
the high court ruling ratified
those decisions.
In this case, Albert Flor-
ence’s nightmare began when
the sport utility vehicle driven by his pregnant wife was
pulled over for speeding. He
was a passenger; his 4-yearold son was in the backseat.
Justice Anthony Kennedy
said the circumstances of the
arrest were of little importance. Instead, Kennedy said,
Florence’s entry into the general jail population gave guards
the authorization to force him
to strip naked and expose his
mouth, nose, ears and genitals
to a visual search in case he
was hiding anything.
“Courts must defer to the
judgment of correctional
officials unless the record
contains substantial evidence
showing their policies are an
unnecessary or unjustified
response to problems of jail
security,” Kennedy said.
Also on Monday, the high
court ruled unanimously that
witnesses who lie to a grand
jury are protected from civil
lawsuits, giving them the
same protection that witnesses get at trials.

In Maryland, the New

claimed to hold the winning

lottery officials Monday. But
lottery spokeswoman Carole
Everett said no one had come
forward with the ticket sold
at a 7-Eleven store in Milford
Mill outside Baltimore.

— Trayvon Martin’s parents asked federal officials
investigating the teenager’s
shooting death to look further into the prosecutor
who stepped down from
the case and his role in
deciding whether to press
charges.
Tracy Martin and Sybrina Fulton allege in a letter
sent to the U.S. Department of Justice that State
Attorney Norm Wolfinger met with the Sanford
police chief within hours
of the teen’s death and that
together they overruled a
detective’s recommendation
that the shooter, George
Zimmerman, be charged
with manslaughter. The letter claims a lead investigator filed an affidavit stating
that he didn’t find Zimmerman’s story credible.
The prosecutor, Norm
Wolfinger, called the allegations “lies” and said no

BALTIMORE — The
record-breaking Mega Millions jackpot climbed to $656
million on Monday, though
no one holding one of the
three winning tickets has
come forward yet to claim
a share of the prize, officials
said.
Three tickets — one each
in Kansas, Illinois and Maryland — will split the jackpot,
which officials said Monday
was higher than previously
estimated. It is now at $656
million, after sales from
the 44 state lotteries were
totaled, up from the previously reported $640 million.
That means each winner
would receive roughly $218
million apiece before taxes.
Winners in all three states
have several months — in the
case of Kansas, a year — to
claim the prize. Both Maryland and Kansas allow winners to remain anonymous,

civil service bill that the state
employees association told
administration officials that
with some further “minor
adjustments,” they could
support the overhaul.
He said the changes were
“minor.”
TSEA Executive Director
Bob O’Connell said “what we
have is an agreement for a
better bill.”
Last week, Democratic
legislative leaders boycotted
their weekly meeting with
Haslam and Republican leaders after an agreement they
thought had been reached
with Haslam aide Mark Cate
later was opposed in committee by Haslam’s legal
counsel, Herbert Slatery.
O’Connell said state
employees are the first to
admit the current system
has problems. But he said
Haslam’s insistence that job
performance evaluations be
the sole factor in determining layoffs was a no go for
employees, who now receive
preferential treatment for
seniority.
The compromise keeps
performance as the top consideration but also requires
officials to take into consideration seniority, disciplinary records and “ability.”
Several other changes also
were made, including having
state employee input on new
evaluations.
Another provision
requires Haslam’s proposed
2.5 percent pay increase for
employees to be across the
board, and employees with
disciplinary marks get the
raise, as well.
The legislation still
does away with “bump and
retreat” requirements that
mandate the state allow
employees with the most
years of service to “bump”
employees with less seniority out of their positions during layoffs.
Contact staff writer Andy
With regard to the budget,
Haslam said he has added an
extra $3.3 million to increase
the sales tax cut, which originally was slated to drop from
5.5 percent to 5.3 percent. It
will now fall to 5.25 percent
beginning July 1.
Haslam said he plans to
reduce the tax to 5 percent
in the next budget.
He acknowledged the
increase in local jail payments, the first in a decade,
is intended to soften local
government concerns about
a provision in his anti-crime
package. The provision
requires domestic-violence
offenders to serve a year in
jail on third and subsequent
convictions.
The provision has concerned local governments,
which would see their costs
increase about $8.4 million
statewide.
Haslam’s amendment is
a nod to some of the recent
growth in state revenue collections, which has led to
pressure from Democrats,
some majority Republicans
and social-service advocates
to restore a number of proposed cuts.
Tennessee tax collections during the first seven
months of the year have
outpaced original estimates
by $237 million in the state’s
general fund, which pays for
most government functions.
All but about $30 million of
that already was accounted
for in Haslam’s original budget, unveiled in February,
administration officials said
last month.
Haslam’s original budget
restored more than $100 million of $160 million in cuts
to “core services” identified
by former Gov. Phil Bredesen, who provided two years
worth of one-time funding. Sher at [email protected]
The purpose was to allow com or 615-255-0550.
Bredesen’s successor and
lawmakers to decide what
cuts they wanted to make
as the economy continues
recovering from the 2008
recession.
Haslam said he had about

and make changes. The
administration received budget requests of some $600
million, he noted.

“We were afraid that she

said the devices provide
focus and consistency for
students. Classrooms at the
May Center have been using
iPads since they first were
put on the market.
“Children with autism
respond really well to consistency. And computerbased devices give us the
ultimate kind of consistency,” said Kay, a board-certified behavior analyst and
licensed psychologist.
The center is one of four
schools for special-needs
populations run by the
May Institute, a nonprofit
organization that provides
educational, rehabilitative
and behavioral health care
services to individuals with
autism.
Kay says iPads are starting to replace communication devices produced especially for autistic individuals. The iPads are cheaper,
just as easy to use and much
more accessible than the
communication machines,
which can cost as much as
$14,000, she said.
“This has opened up the
world to kids,” Kay said.
“They can touch the screen
and get a response.”

autistic students kept hundreds of small photos to help
with choices and transition
time. That same idea is now
being replicated on iPads.
“It’s taking some systems that have already been
in place and now advancing them and making them
even more accessible for our
children with autism,” said
Blythe Corbett, an assistant
professor in the department
of psychiatry at Vanderbilt
University.
Anecdotal evidence
across the country suggests
autistic students are making gains with iPads, though
Corbett said the academic
research still is emerging.
She’s found various types
of technology useful for
communicating with students in her lab, though she
noted it’s just one piece of
the puzzle.
“We don’t want it to
replace the social aspect
of learning,” she said. “But
I believe by helping them
build this bridge with technology, we can help them
become better learners.”

It’s a relatively simple
exchange. But teachers say
being able to express choices is what makes the iPads
so special. Before using the
iPads, it was hard for teachers to know what activities
Rowan wanted to do, leading
her to fuss or scream.
“These are the situations when the iPads make
the difference — when we
can’t guess what it is they’re
wanting,” said Kelly DeJong,
a classroom coach at the
institute’s East Brainerd
Early Learning Center.
The communication on
iPads goes both ways. When

shows Rowan pictures of the
outdoor playground equipment. She instantly knows a
transition is coming up and
what her next activity will
be.
“For children with autism,
it’s hard for them to know
what’s coming up next,” said
Maggie Rudd, one of Rowan’s teachers.
With its many educational apps, Rudd said she
uses the iPad as an activity
in and of itself, in addition to
its uses as a communication
device.
The kids can’t get enough.
They huddle around the
device and climb into Rudd’s
lap, looking for their turn
with the iPad. Using the
device in such a way helps
encourage kids to interact
with each other, which is
sometimes a challenge for
children with autism.
“It really forces the issue
of socialization,” said Betsy

sometimes hard to do.”

developed more intensely,
but at a much different scale
and with a different arrangement of uses to reflect the
site conditions,” the report
states.
Hannah Bunch, who
works at Academy Sports
in a shopping center about
a mile south of the proposed
development site, said traffic’s not too bad when she
travels up Highway 153 to
work each day, so long as
she’s not scheduled to work
near morning or evening
rush hours.
“If we get off at 5 [p.m.],
it doubles the time it takes,”
she said.
Duane Horton, president
of Scenic Land Co., which is
overseeing the development,
has not returned multiple
phone calls after a March 12
community meeting about
the project. He did not return
calls on Monday, asking for
comment on the report.
At the March meeting,
Horton said the project turns
property with several different owners into one cohesive
development with only one
major entrance. If the project
is denied, he said, the space
probably will be developed
piecemeal, making traffic
problems even worse.
But for nearby landowners, potential problems go
well beyond traffic.
Gregory Vickrey, executive director of the North
Chickamauga Creek Conservancy, expects stormwater,
which already causes flooding, pollution and erosion
along the creek, will increase
dramatically if the project is
built.
ATV

do to regulate it,” he said.
“It’s federal property.”
Chattahoochee-Oconee
National Forest spokesman
Mitch Cohen said there are
standards for their ATV trails
and periodic maintenance
is done, but he declined to
answer further questions on
what those standards were
and how often they were
examined.
“Public safety and employee safety is a very important priority, if not the most
important,” he said Monday
afternoon.
Emergency vehicles such
as ambulances can’t use the
trails to respond to accidents,
and riders aren’t required to
wear helmets, Collins said.
Price wasn’t wearing a helmet when she was killed
Sunday, officials said.
Conasauga District Ranger
Michele Jones in Chatsworth,
Ga., said the national forest doesn’t require helmets
because state law doesn’t.
“Helmets are recommended but not required,”
she said. “We follow the state
of Georgia rules out there.”
Riders are required to stay
on the designated trails, but
there isn’t an age limit for a
passenger rider, she said.
WHAT’S NEXT
The Chattanooga-Hamilton
County Regional Planning
Agency will meet Monday
to decide whether to
approve or deny a rezoning
required for the 190-acre
residential and commercial
development in Hixson. The
rezoning recommendation
will then go to the
Chattanooga City Council,
which will make the final
decision.
“This is an area impacted
any time there is a significant rain event,” he said. “We
already know it can’t handle
it now.”
In the March meeting,
Horton pledged to exceed
stormwater retention
requirements and promised
there would be no flooding
downstream from the development. His preliminary
plans include three waterretention ponds on the site.
But Vickrey was doubtful
Horton could find a place
for the millions of gallons
of stormwater that would
run off the site if it is paved
over.
“If he can, he’s a better
engineer than God,” Vickrey
said.
Flooding left Boy Scout
Road, which runs along the
northern edge of the property, impassible during storms
earlier this year. Drainage
into North Chickamauga
Creek is quickly eroding
the public and private land
the creek runs through, a
problem that cost millions
in taxpayer dollars in SoddyDaisy, just north of the Hixson development site.
Erosion has caused problems for decades in that area,
washing away yards, porches,
home foundations and the
U.S. 27 bridge. The federal
government paid $1.77 million in 2005 for just one of
many projects aimed at fighting erosion along the Willow Creek subdivision near
Dayton Pike.
“It could be three times
in a year, it could be once in
five years, but it’s going to
happen,” said Hardie Stulce,
city manager in Soddy-Daisy.
“When that creek starts ripping and rolling, the water
goes somewhere. There have
been instances in the last 10
years where U.S. Highway 27
was underwater.”
Stulce wasn’t familiar
with the details of the proposed Hixson project but
said he wouldn’t be surprised
if it caused water problems
similar to what his town has
seen.
“I can tell you what it does
up here on this end, and the
water that comes through
here is definitely going to
come through there,” he said.
“I think the people who are
concerned have a reason to
be concerned.”
There are plenty area
residents who are concerned. Vickrey has gotten
more than 670 signatures
on a petition against the
project. He said he plans to
fight the development till
the end to keep the creek
healthy and area residents
safe from what has happened in Soddy-Daisy.
“I would label it inevitable
that some property owners
are going to be affected that
dramatically,” Vickrey said.
“It’s a no-brainer to describe
it as a long-term cost for the
community.”

When Price went riding
with about eight other ATVs
early Sunday afternoon,
the trails had opened for a
new season one day earlier,
authorities said.
Price was riding on the
Houston Valley Trail — a
popular two-way trail that
ranges from easy to most difficult, according to an ATV
trail guide website.
“The terrain offers a mixture of challenging rocky
sections, deep mud puddles
and water crossings,” said
a description from Rider
Planet USA, a website that
rates ATV trails across the
country.
Catoosa County f irst
received the 911 call for an
injured woman about 1:30 p.m.
Sunday. Then another call
came in to Whitfield County
reporting an “unresponsive”
female ATV rider on the
trails, 911 records show.
Rescue crews used the
county emergency management crew’s four-wheel drive
utility vehicle to transport
Price off the trail, Collins
said.
Price was pronounced
dead on the scene at 2 p.m.
“It’s just a slow process
getting people out of there,”
Collins said.

offered a robust defense.
“For years what we’ve heard
is the biggest problem on the

the lack of judicial restraint,
that an unelected group of
people would somehow overturn a duly constituted and
passed law,” Obama said.
“Well, there’s a good

I’m pretty confident that this
court will recognize that and
not take that step.”

The Associated Press
NEW YORK — For years,
women have been urged to
get screened for breast cancer
because the earlier it’s found,
the better. Now researchers
are reporting more evidence
suggesting that’s not always
the case.
A study in Norway estimates that between 15 and
25 percent of breast cancers
found by mammograms
wouldn’t have caused any
problems during a woman’s
lifetime, but these tumors were
being treated anyway. Once
detected, early tumors are
surgically removed and sometimes treated with radiation or
chemotherapy because there’s
no certain way to figure out
which ones may be dangerous
and which are harmless.
“When you look for cancer
early and you look really hard,
you find forms that are ultimately never going to bother
the patient,” said Dr. H. Gilbert Welch of the Dartmouth

xactly one year to the

uniforms approaches
the spot where Chattanooga Police Department
Sgt. Tim Chapin was slain.
Many stared ahead as they
held a moment of silence
Monday morning, saying
prayers for the fallen officer.
Chapin, 51, was a 26-year
veteran of the department.
He was killed on April 2, 2011,
during a botched robbery
attempt at the U.S. Money

ceremony took place at 10:24

“It definitely solidifies the

Mark Bender, one of five officers who responded to the
robbery call. “You have 400

But an adviser for Fleischmann, the
elder Wamp’s successor and a firstterm Republican, said the congressman raised about $200,000 between
Jan. 1 and March 31 and counted at
least $750,000 after first-quarter

Graveside gathering honors man’s spirit
Wreck victim’s kin say they want to bring attention to drunken driving
By Todd South
Staff Writer
A group of family and friends
clustered around a grave in Hamilton Memorial Gardens on Monday
evening for a birthday celebration
marked with smiles and tears.
Each clutched at least one ribbon holding a balloon, some with
messages written on their pink
or yellow or blue or green shells
— “Happy Birthday Kevin” or “I
love you so much big bro!”
Monday would have been Kevin
Yates’ 26th birthday. But 10 months
ago, on July 31, 2010, an alleged
drunken driver slammed head-on
into his Chrysler minivan and he
died a few days later.
The driver, Latisha Stephens,
faces a possible sentencing hearing
today in Hamilton County Criminal Court.
But Monday night wasn’t about
the wreck, it was about keeping
memories alive.
“It was a tragedy for Kevin, for
anyone to die in that way, we just
don’t want him to be forgotten,”
said Mark Yates, Kevin’s father.
“It obviously doesn’t just affect a
mom and dad, just look around.
“By keeping him alive, it keeps
that one little spark in someone
who maybe says I shouldn’t drink
this or maybe I shouldn’t get
behind the wheel,” Mark Yates
said.
Yates’ mother, Tiki Finlayson,
shared some joy through the tears
as she read a letter from a man
who received Kevin’s heart due to
his organ donation. Friends shared
memories of Yates’ love of Jackie
Chan movies, Batman and video
games.
The more than 40 people huddled close and released nearly 100
balloons that drifted up and eastward on the breeze.

Police looking
for copper thieves
Police are asking for help
identifying two masked
men who broke into the
same building three times
last month.
All three incidents happened at Mohawk Industries at 300 Brookhollow
Industrial Blvd., police
spokesman Bruce Frazier
said. The first incident was
reported on March 9, and,
though the suspects didn’t
get away with any wiring,
they did more than $2,000
in damage, Frazier said.
The second incident was
reported March 14, when
the two men stole 300 feet
of copper wire and other
items, all of which were
later found in the woods
nearby, Frazier said.
The last reported breakin was March 23, when the
two burglars stole the copper wire they left behind
the last time, Frazier said.
Anyone with information
is asked to contact Detective Ricky Long at 706-2789085, ext. 168.

Teen’s body found
in rescue attempt
Searchers have recovered
the body of a teenager who
jumped into the Tennessee
River to help save his grandfather, who fell from a boat.
According to WSMV-TV,
the body of the 15-year-old
was found shortly before
noon Monday. His name was
not immediately released.
They had come to fish
near the New Johnsonville
power plant when a man
fell into the river at about
6:30 a.m. Monday. Another
adult and the teen jumped
into to rescue him. They
were able to get the older
man back to the boat. The
youth, however, disappeared under the surface.

Rossville house raided, 200 marijuana plants seized
By Joy Lukachick
Staff Report
Three men were arrested on Monday, accused of
turning a Rossville house
into a quarter-million dollar marijuana operation.
Lookout Mountain
Drug Task Force agents
raided the home off
Longview Drive and found
more than 200 plants of
all sizes, from seedling to
processed marijuana ready
for sale, officials said.
“Its been one of the
biggest indoor operations in this decade [in
the county],” said Drug
Task Force Interim Commander Patrick Doyle.
As part of the investigation, Benjamin Valdes, 30;
Juan Valladares, 30; and
Marijuana buds sit on a coffee table in the home
in Rossville that was raided on Monday.
Felix Valdes Jr., 32, were
arrested, said Walker County Sheriff Steve Wilson.
All three men face
charges of possession of
marijuana and possession
with intent to distribute,
Wilson said.
Authorities believe
the men had been growing marijuana inside the
house for about a year,
Doyle said.
Benjamin Valdes had
been investigated months
ago, but had left the county and gone to Florida,
Doyle said. When agents
learned he was back in
Walker County, they
began another investigation, he said.
When authorities tried
to serve an arrest warrant
on Benjamin Valdes on
Monday, he tried to run,
but he was caught and
arrested along with Valladares and Felix Valdes,
Doyle said.
The investigation is
ongoing.

CLEVELAND, Tenn. —
The athletic fields at Cleveland Middle School will be
getting lights.
The middle school opened
in 2000 with football, track
and baseball fields unlighted
as a cost-saving measure. It
has been a 12-year campaign
by the school’s sports fans
and coaches to get those
lights.
Monday, the Cleveland
Board of Education approved
a deal that will finance the
lights with the same company used by local government, MUSCO Finance LLC
of Oskaloose, Iowa.
Beginning in 2013, the
$400,000 project will be paid
for at more than $146,000 a
year for three years. Then

MUSCO will maintain the

“This will change the paradigm for sports at Cleveland
Middle School,” said board

Paul Ramsey, energy

final $165,000 annual payment is made to Energy Education, the company under
contract as adviser to starting
the school system’s energy

CLEVELAND, Tenn.
— Bradley County commissioners have agreed to offer
financial incentives to help
Procter & Gamble Duracell
make a $36 million reinvestment within the community
that will create 60 new jobs.
On Monday night, Bradley County commissioners
voted 13-0 to authorize a tax
abatement request made by
P&G Duracell to assist the
company with its expansion
plans at its Cleveland facilities.
Although the issue did
not generate any discussion among commissioners during the meeting,

L a s t we e k , o ff i c i a l s
announced that the company’s Cleveland production facility would be P&G
Duracell’s only plant that
manufactures its C and
D batteries. The planned
expansion of Cleveland
operations are intended to
help the company fulfill
sales of the batteries worldwide. The Cleveland plant
is one of only three P&G
Duracell production facilities in the United States.
The battery plant has
maintained a relationship
with the community for
more than 50 years, and P&G
Duracell’s latest reinvestment
will go toward building that
relationship for another 50
years, said Berry.
“It’s usually at 40 or 50
years where a company
decides whether it is going
to stay in a town any longer,”
said Berry.
The company is expected
to begin seeking employees to fill the new positions
within the next 45 to 60 days,
said Berry.
The county and city will
receive $564,000 in property tax revenues over the
next seven years because
of the P&G Duracell expansion, according to economic
development calculations.
Bradley County will receive
$308,000 of the total and
Cleveland will receive
$256,000.
Local and state sales tax
revenues also would benefit
from the new jobs, and it is
expected that new retail jobs
would be created in the area
as an indirect benefit, said
Berry.

Students walk past an entrance to Arnold
Memorial Elementary School in Cleveland, Tenn., Monday on their annual walk
to battle cystic fibrosis.
CLEVELAND, Tenn. — The
children at Arnold Memorial
Elementary School have made
defeating cystic fibrosis one of
their goals.
“Some boys and girls have trouble just being able to breathe,” said
fifth-grader Norance Berry.
So Monday, the students lined
up to walk around the school
block and deliver their “change
for a change,” money they’d raised
to help find a cure.
Before spring break last week,
they had raised about $500 in pennies, nickels, dimes and quarters.
Last weekend, some Arnold teachers and students also took part in
the annual 65 Roses Run to raise
money for a cystic fibrosis cure.
“It makes you feel like you are
making a difference for people you
don’t even know,” said Mikayla
Horton.
Principal Kellye Bender said a
former Arnold student had cystic
fibrosis and others in the Cleveland School system also have suffered from the genetic disorder.
“So Arnold has made this a special
project,” Bender said.
Students are so well versed in
cystic fibrosis, “they know about the
medicines being developed, so they
can see the benefits,” she said.
To battle the disease, Arnold
is a partner with Lee University
in the Cleveland-Bradley County
Chamber of Commerce’s Business
and Education Serving Together
program. The university makes
the annual 65 Roses Run.
“But not all our children can get
to Lee on a Saturday,” Bender said,
so the school had its own event.
Lee announced that its 10-year
65 Roses, a 5k run, has passed the
half-million dollar mark in contributions for a cystic fibrosis cure.
There were 825 registered runners
on Saturday.

Council members say there’s little they can do about Strut
By Cliff Hightower
Staff Writer
Despite protests about
the relocation of the Bessie
Smith Strut, most City Council members said Monday
there is nothing they can do
about the decision.
Council Chairwoman Pam
Ladd said the whole issue
is “out of their jurisdiction.”
Council Manny Rico said the
matter is “out of their hands.”
A group of businessmen,
community leaders and vendors is expected to ask the
City Council tonight to do
something about Mayor Ron
Littlefield’s decision to move
the Strut from M.L. King
Boulevard to the riverfront.
The group “will be folks
who have a vested interest
in the Bessie Smith Strut and
an interest in the MLK neighborhood,” said the Rev. Jeffrey Wilson, pastor of New
United Missionary Baptist
Church and a Hamilton
County Board of Education
member. “I think there will
be a good number.”
Littlefield, citing safety
concerns about the Strut,
announced
l a s t we e k
that he asked

Mike McMahan said last week the decision is an administrative one
that falls under the powers of
the mayor.
Councilman Peter Mur-
phy said the
only power
the council
has is the
power over
the budget.
“ T h e
council
can decide
to d e f u n d
Andraé
something,”
McGary
he said. “We
don’t like what you’re doing
so we’re going to take the
money away. I don’t know
what we can defund to
change this decision.”
Councilwoman Deborah
Scott said she appreciates
both sides of the issue: a
concern over public safety
and concern over business
owners along M.L. King Boulevard worrying about losing
money if the Strut moves.
Co u n c i l m a n A n d ra é
McGary, who represents the
district where the Strut has
been held for 31 years, said
he is getting a lot of feedback
from the community.
“What I am getting is,
‘Can the council reverse this
decision?’” he said. “That’s
my question.”
He said there could be
some options but declined
to discuss them Monday.
Richard Beeland, spokesman for the mayor, said Littlefield would not be at the
meeting and instead would
be in Nashville, speaking
with Tennessee legislators
about gang laws.

A Tennessee hunting license like this one
would give people the right to store a
gun in their vehicles while at work under
a bill proposed in Nashville.
Resources Agency doesn’t keep track of how
many of those are younger than 21.
Ramsey said the proposal as currently
written goes too far.
“Expanding it to hunting licenses — even
though I can see why they did that — but
that’s stuff that just doesn’t need to be done,”
said Ramsey, R-Blountville.
The House version of the bill is up for a

vote has yet to be scheduled.
riverfront.
“It’s like slapping a tiger
with a toothache,” said Gloria Griffith, a Westside resident.
Griffith said she’ll be participating in tonight’s march,
which she said is not only to
show support for the preservation of public housing, but
also to express anger about
the relocation of the Strut.
When it comes to the Purpose Built community, Westside residents are concerned
that if the amount of public
housing is reduced further —
as it was to make room for a
Purpose Built community in
Atlanta’s East Lake Villages,
low-income people may not
have a place to live.
More than 1,500 people
are on the waiting list for
public housing in Chattanooga while another 5,000
wait for Section 8 housing.
If any public housing is
destroyed to make way for
the Purpose Built community, Chattanooga Housing
Authority officials have said
residents will be relocated to
other public housing units or
given a housing voucher.
But Westside residents
are skeptical.
Less than one-quarter of
the people from the defunct
Spencer J. McCallie Homes
made it back to the revitalized Villages at Alton Park
when the new complex was
finished in 2005.
And some people who
have Section 8 vouchers
have said they have difficulty
finding landlords to accept
them because some vouchers
intended to pay a person’s
rent are only for $400.
Councilman Peter Murphy said the residents are
welcome to use the council
as a public forum but they
would be more effective if
they took their protest to the
federal government, which
has been reducing funding
for public housing annually.

Attorneys for four codefendants asked a Criminal
Court judge to dismiss murder charges against their clients Monday, saying a police
lieutenant’s order not to collect a cellphone would result
in an unfair trial.
During a two-hour hearing before Judge Don Poole,
attorneys Jonathan Turner,
Jay Perry, Todd Hastey and
Garth Best argued that
because the phone was not
collected during a Chattanooga police investigation
into the June 29, 2010, death
of Bernard Hughes, 46, their
clients won’t know if there
was evidence that could have
ruled them out as suspects in
the home invasion shooting.
But prosecutors Neal
Pinkston and Cameron Williams argued that nothing presented by the defense attorneys showed there was anything on the phone that gave
police a reason to hold it.
On July 13, 2010, Chattanooga police investigator
Michael Wenger got a call
that officers had found a
phone, believed to be Harold Butler’s, at the home of
Antonio Watkins.
When Wenger arrived,
then-Lt. Edwin McPherson
told him that U.S. marshals
might want the phone and
for him not to take it into
evidence, Wenger testified
Monday.
After Wenger checked
with the federal agents and
they told him they didn’t
need the phone, McPherson
called Wenger’s lieutenant
supervisor, who then called
Wenger’s sergeant supervisor to tell Wenger not to collect the phone.
McPherson then told
Wenger on the scene that he
could inspect the phone and
ask Watkins questions, but he
couldn’t take it, Wenger testified. Watkins told Wenger he’d
bought the phone from Butler
for two bags of marijuana.
McPherson, now a captain,
testified Monday he didn’t
remember telling Wenger not
to take the phone into evidence.
Turner also asked McPherson
what he did with information
from his niece, an eyewitness
to the Hughes shooting.
The captain said he passed
along the information from
his niece and other confidential sources to homicide
investigators and did not
interview her, to avoid a conflict of interest.
Hastey’s client, John Simpson, 31, is the first scheduled for trial on first-degree

County fell to 29th, down
four slots from last year.
In Georgia, Catoosa and
Whitfield counties were in
the top 25 percent in overall health, while Walker and
Murray were in the bottom
third.
Odegaard said the additional data this year is an
effort to provide a broader
look at all the health factors
contributing to a community’s health.
Access to fast-food outlets in a community has been
linked to an increase in obesity and diabetes, the rankings
note. The level of physical
activity and access to healthy
foods also contribute to overall health, Odegaard said.
The county health rankings are useful because they
look at such a wide range of
factors that are not always
directly linked to health outcomes but still play a huge
role, said Logan Boss, the
spokesman for the 10-county
Northwest Georgia Health
District.
“It gives good information, but it is only a snapshot
in time and not a useful tool
to measure progress. It is one
tool we use,” Boss said.

Higher gas prices anyway
A
mid the angst of rising gasoline
prices, at least two things seem
clear.
One is that Senate Republicans are
keeping billions in annual taxpayer
subsidies flowing to Big Oil, never
mind the record profits it currently
is reaping off rising fuel prices. (The
three biggest oil companies, for example, took home $80 billion in profits
last year). The Senate proved its allegiance to the oil moguls with another
filibuster-proof vote last week to end
the $2.4 billion in subsidies to the top
five oil companies, mainly because
their campaign coffers depend heavily
on oil lobbyists’ money.
The second apparent feature of the
energy-price dynamic is that rising oil
and gas production in the United States,
which has spurted to record levels under
the Obama administration’s tenure, has
hit such a high level that energy industry analysts now see legitimate longterm prospects of energy independence
from imported fossil fuels — the grail of
the “drill baby drill” crowd.
Tea party types, of course, haven’t
figured out how to reconcile the broader trends, or more specifically, why rising U.S. energy production isn’t bringing down the cost of oil and gasoline.
Their intellectual dilemma, of course,
springs from the fact that they haven’t
accepted the financial reality that oil
is an easily traded international commodity, which means its price is set on
the world’s commodities markets. So
no matter where the oil is produced
— from domestic wells, or in Africa
or the Middle East — customers will
pay the international per barrel prices. Raising domestic production won’t
change that equation.
American consumers are not helping the right-wing’s myopia about
how to bring down the price at the
pump. They have simply begun coping with the market dynamic of rising
gasoline prices by logically following
market signals — and consuming less
gasoline per mile or per day. As the
economy has recovered, they’ve been
trading in their gas guzzlers and buying
more fuel efficient vehicles, including
hybrids and electric options. Others are
rediscovering timeless virtues — using
public transportation more, and riding
bicycles or walking more.
With a growing fracking industry
and a dawning surfeit of natural gas
from shale fields supplementing the
oil industry’s new drilling, consumers
also will begin seeing the rise of a natural gas-or-propane infrastructure for
broader vehicle use. That will further
relieve demand-side pressure for oil,
gasoline and diesel products.
To a point, these converging trends
are all good — so long as environmentally sound and fair-minded regulation
over fracking protects vital water supplies from toxic fracking chemicals and
hazardous methane contamination of
water resources.
The missing focus in this emerging
scenario is an emphasis on conservation, alternative vehicles and fair treatment to taxpayers who unreasonably
are forced to subsidize Big Oil’s mega
profits. With barely 5 percent of the
world’s population and 2 percent of the
world’s known oil reserves, the United
States cannot afford to use more than
20 percent of the world’s oil. It will take
a far more balanced approach to energy
use to achieve a semblance of sustainable, affordable energy use.
A blow to the Constitution
In another 5-4 decision that followed
the increasingly familiar ideological
divide, the U.S. Supreme Court ruled
Monday that jail guards may stripsearch individuals arrested for any
offense, including minor ones such as a
traffic violation. The ruling needlessly
weakens the Fourth Amendment’s safeguard against unreasonable searches.
Justice Anthony Kennedy said in the
majority opinion that if an individual
is to be incarcerated with the general
jail population, “courts must defer to
the judgment of correctional officials
unless the record contains substantial
evidence showing their policies are an
unnecessary or unjustified response
to problems of jail security.” Kennedy
wrote that it would be “unworkable” to
make an exception for people arrested minor offenses. The court’s highly
politicized right wing — Chief Justice
John G. Roberts and Justices Antonin
Scalia, Clarence Thomas and Samuel
A. Alito Jr. — concurred with Kennedy
that strip searches were reasonable.
The court’s liberal minority took a
far more balanced view.
Justice Steven G. Breyer, writing
for himself and Justices Ruth Bader
Ginsburg, Sonia Sotomayor and Elena
Kagan, said jailers should have reasonable grounds before conducting
an invasive strip search, which generally requires an individual to remove
his or her clothes, to be subjected to a
body cavity search and to allow their
genitals to be inspected. Breyer correctly wrote that such searches were
“a serious affront to human dignity and
individual privacy” and should be used
only when there was reason to expect
that a person was hiding something.
The minority’s opinion certainly
matches the Fourth Amendment’s view
of unreasonable searches more closely
than the majority’s blanket approval of
strip searches.
The case before the court was particularly egregious. The plaintiff was
arrested in New Jersey because a
search of records during a traffic stop
incorrectly indicated he had not paid
a fine. The plaintiff told the arresting
officer the fine had been paid, but he
was nevertheless arrested, subjected to
strip searches at two jails and incarcerated for six days before he was allowed
to prove the fine had been paid. He
sued the county where he had been
arrested for violating his privacy. Given
the circumstances, his claim certainly
had merit.
Earlier rulings regarding those
charged with minor offenses but who
had no compelling reason to be strip
searched were mixed. Some courts
approved them. Others said they were
lawful only if there was reasonable
suspicion that the person had contraband or weapons. Monday’s decision
removes the sensible requirement cited
by the latter.
The ruling recklessly redefines the
legal meaning of “reasonable.” It also
continues, even accelerates, the conservative majority’s determination to
broaden police powers while eroding
constitutional protections and civil
rights. The dangerous and partisan
politicization of the U.S. Supreme Court,
it is apparent, continues unabated.
COMMENTARY
A new world of health care
WASHINGTON — Listening to lawyers talk nonstop last
week about health care gave
me a headache, so I decided
to consult a
doctor. He
offered a
real-world
diagnosis of
what’s happening in
health care
— and a
reminder of
David
how much
Ignatius
it’s changing, regardless of what the
Supreme Court decides about
Obamacare.
My medical guru is Dr.
Delos “Toby” Cosgrove, chief
executive of Cleveland Clinic,
a $6 billion network that’s one
of the biggest and best in the
country. Cosgrove explained
how the health system is being
transformed by basic economic pressures that predated the
new law and will continue,
regardless.
Talking with Cosgrove, you
get the sense that the political (and now, legal) version
of the health care debate is in
many ways a distraction from
what matters most, which is
how care is delivered. That’s
changing, inexorably, because
of underlying cost pressures.
The Supremes could throw
Obamacare out the window,
and we’d still have a revolution
in health care delivery that
promises better treatment for
Americans, at lower cost. The
Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act will make this
revamped system accessible
to more Americans, so I’m for
it on equity grounds. But even
if the mandate to buy insurance disappears, health care
will keep moving into the new
world of care.
■ The health care
debate is in many ways
a distraction from what
matters most, which is
how care is delivered.
We should understand
that the current debate is over
financing and access — not
health care delivery. Drawing
on Cosgrove’s analysis, here’s
a summary of the changes
already in play:
■ Hospitals are consolidating. Today, says Cosgrove, 60
percent of hospitals are part of
consolidated systems. These
systems will keep merging as
they drive toward greater efficiency. It’s the same process
that happens in every industry. It will make care a little
more impersonal — but also
cheaper and better.
This rationalization will
close small and inefficient
community hospitals — one
U.S. official estimates that up
to 1,000 hospitals should be
closed. As a result, we’ll have
fewer hospital beds and more
outpatient and home care.
What’s forcing consolidation
is that reimbursements from
Medicare are going to be
reduced, requiring hospitals
to cut costs.
■ Doctors are becoming
salaried, joining the trend
pushed by the Cleveland Clinic and other providers. Today,
about 60 percent of doctors
nationwide are on salary, up
about 10 percent from several
years ago. Cosgrove predicts
that this will rise to at least 70
percent over the next decade.
Salaried doctors won’t have
the same economic incentives
to provide expensive treatments that may not make sense
for patients. They’ll be paid
well (an internist at Cleveland
Clinic starts at about $120,000)
but not stratospheric salaries.
Meanwhile, a shortage of
doctors and nurses means that
less senior (and less expensive) practitioners are providing more care. A physician’s
assistant, increasingly, will
treat minor ailments; in operating rooms, says Cosgrove, 40
percent of those present are
technicians, rather than doctors and nurses.
■ Health records are finally
going electronic, which should
allow more savings. It’s an
expensive transition, but it will
pay huge dividends, in terms
of cheaper and better care.
■ The federal government
is gathering better data on
health outcomes, which will
encourage national standards.
Hospitals already report 65
metrics for care to the Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services. By 2014, they
will be reporting 85 items
that will measure everything
from patient satisfaction to
infection and mortality rates.
Medicare payments to doctors and hospitals will partly
reflect performance. Docs may
complain about intrusion, but
this change should mean better care for millions of baby
boomers entering Medicare.
The health care overhaul is happening whatever
the Supreme Court decides.
The main consequence of
the Obamacare case will be
whether the justices toss out
the existing rule book, forcing
everyone to start over again.
The justices can slow things
down in this way, and they can
make the system more equitable or less, but they can’t stop
the revolution.

Why nations fail
I’m reading a fascinating
new book called “Why Nations
Fail.” The more you read it,
the more you appreciate what
a fool’s errand we’re on in
Afghanistan and how much
we need
to totally
revamp
our whole
foreign aid
s t r a t e g y.
But most
intriguing are the
warning
Thomas
flares the
Friedman
authors put
up about both America and
China.
Co-written by the MIT
economist Daron Acemoglu and the Harvard political
scientist James A. Robinson,
“Why Nations Fail” argues that
the key differentiator between
countries is “institutions.”
Nations thrive when they
develop “inclusive” political
and economic institutions, and
they fail when those institutions become “extractive” and
concentrate power and opportunity in the hands of only a
few.
“Inclusive economic institutions that enforce property
rights, create a level playing
field, and encourage investments in new technologies and
skills are more conducive to
economic growth than extractive economic institutions
that are structured to extract
resources from the many by
the few,” they write.
“Inclusive economic institutions, are in turn supported
by, and support, inclusive
political institutions,” which
“distribute political power
widely in a pluralistic manner
and are able to achieve some
amount of political centralization so as to establish law
■ Nations fail when their

and order, the foundations of
secure property rights, and an
inclusive market economy.”
Conversely, extractive political institutions that concentrate power in the hands of
a few reinforce extractive
economic institutions to hold
power.
Acemoglu explained in
an interview that their core
point is that countries thrive
when they build political and
economic institutions that
“unleash,” empower and protect the full potential of each
citizen to innovate, invest and
develop. Compare how well
Eastern Europe has done since
the fall of communism with
post-Soviet states like Georgia
or Uzbekistan, or Israel versus
the Arab states, or Kurdistan
versus the rest of Iraq. It’s all
in the institutions.
The lesson of history, the
authors argue, is you can’t get
economics right if you don’t
get politics right, which is why
they don’t buy the notion China
has found the magic formula
for combining political control
and economic growth.
“Our analysis,” says Acemoglu, “is that China is experiencing growth under extractive institutions — under the
authoritarian grip of the Communist Party, which has been
able to monopolize power and
mobilize resources at a scale
that has allowed for a burst
of economic growth starting
from a very low base,” but
it’s not sustainable because
it doesn’t foster the degree
of “creative destruction” that
is so vital for innovation and
higher incomes.
The post-9/11 view that
what ailed the Arab world
and Afghanistan was a lack
of democracy was not wrong,
said Acemoglu. What was
wrong was thinking we could
easily export it. Democratic
change has to emerge from
grass-roots movements, “but
that does not mean there is
nothing we can do,” he adds.
For instance, we should
be transitioning away from
military aid to regimes like
Egypt and focusing instead
on enabling more sectors of
that society to have a say in
politics. Right now, I’d argue,
our foreign aid to Egypt, Pakistan and Afghanistan is really a
ransom we pay their elites not
to engage in bad behavior. We
need to turn it into bait.
We can only be a force multiplier. Where you have grassroots movements that want
to build inclusive institutions,
we can enhance them. But we
can’t create or substitute for
them. Worse, in Afghanistan
and many Arab states, our policies have often discouraged
grass roots from emerging by
our siding with convenient
strongmen. So there’s nothing
to multiply. If you multiply
zero by 100, you still get zero.
And America? Acemoglu
worries that our huge growth
in economic inequality is
undermining the inclusiveness of America’s institutions,
too. “The real problem is that
economic inequality, when
it becomes this large, translates into political inequality.”
When one person can write a
check to finance your whole
campaign, how inclusive will
you be as an elected official to
listen to competing voices?

Tax whom — and how much?
Established 1936, Roy McDonald, Founder & Publisher, 1936-1990
Frank McDonald, President and Chairman, 1969-2000
LEE ANDERSON
Associate Publisher & Editor
EDITORIALS
Are you happy about taxes?
T
his headline question seems a
little silly to most of us, doesn’t
it? Who is ever “happy” about
any taxes — unless they are going down,
which is very rare.
Do you know what President Barack
Obama plans to do about our taxes —
and very soon?
We are asking now because this year
— 2012 — our tax rates are headed for
a change.
Six tax brackets have been in effect for
Americans since 2003. They range from
10 percent to 35 percent.
The Tax Relief Act of 2010 temporarily extended those tax rates through the
end of 2012.
But what’s next?
The tax rates for 2013 are set to change
— automatically — to the pre-2003 rates
unless new legislation is passed by Congress and signed by the president!
Do you know what President Obama
and a majority of the members of Congress have in mind?
Unless new legislation is approved, the
current 10 percent tax rate is scheduled
to become 15 percent. The 25 percent
tax rate will become 28 percent. The 28
percent tax rate will become 31 percent.
The 33 percent tax rate will become 36
percent. And the 35 percent tax rate will
become 39.6 percent — automatically!
Have you seen or heard any indication
that Congress and the president will “do
something” in time to avoid imposing
higher taxes upon us?
Obama said in a radio address last
Saturday: “We don’t envy success in
this country. We aspire to it. But we also
believe that anyone who does well for
themselves should do their fair share
in return, so that more people have the
opportunity to get ahead — not just a
few.”
Did that sound to you like a suggestion that he is planning to do anything
to avoid the scheduled “automatic” tax
increases? Or did it suggest he plans
to let higher taxes automatically take
effect?
Few of us taxpayers may be aware of
the immediate prospect of higher taxes.
Most people certainly don’t want higher
taxes. But in no case should we let the
possibility of higher taxes “slip up on us”
and take effect without warning.
So shouldn’t we, the taxpayers, immediately and urgently insist that our representatives and senators in Congress
speak up clearly — now — and not surprise us with “automatic” higher taxes?
Aren’t specific explanations and decisions due — now?
Crime doesn’t pay, it costs
Southeast Tennessee and North Georgia, like other areas, have been confronted with a reality: There are those who are
willing to take their God-given energies
and devote them to a life of crime, deviancy and disruption rather than making the decision to devote themselves to
hard work, honesty and contributing to
their community.
Petty crime, gangs, sex trafficking
and drug use all are drains on the rights
of individuals and the health of every
community. Individual property rights
and the right of personhood are just two
rights that any crime or act of deviance
infringes upon. There is no defense for
such behavior.
A 2010 study by researchers at Iowa
State University based on data from 654
convicted killers estimated the cost of a
single murder at $17.25 million based on
“costs to victims, criminal justice system costs, lost productivity for both the
criminal and victim, and estimates on
the public’s investment to prevent future
violence.” The same study determined
the societal costs of incidents of rape
($448,532), armed robbery ($335,733),
aggravated assault ($145,379) and theft
($42,288).
So, you ask, “How do we stop
crime?”
In study after study, poverty is identified as a main contributing factor, along
with a very hungry and profitable drug
market.
So, what is the major contributing factor of poverty?
Research consistently shows that
households with non-traditional structures, i.e. single parents or reconstituted
families; those headed by a teenage parent; and those with a large number of
children are more likely to be in poverty.
Law enforcement has to do the dangerous but much-appreciated job of
removing those who make the decision
to pursue crime versus a life of productivity. Social services must continue serving as safety nets and provide a path
back to productivity, not a guarantee for
generational sustenance.
Churches, families and friends, we all
have to be brutally honest rather than
offer excuses for and justify patterns of
crime and deviance. The commitment to
that which is right and decent in work,
entertainment and education is never
the easiest, but it must be taught in our
homes, places of worship and, yes, our
schools. Likewise, the decision to pursue
crime and deviancy must be rejected and
identified as completely inappropriate.
Most call it “tough love.”
The reputation and the existence of
our community will be determined by
our choices and actions.
We all make choices, then our choices
make us.
Student loans, and other debt
A government study finds that student-loan debt has reached the frightening figure of $1 trillion!
That’s shocking. But is it “good”
or “bad”? Does it mean more young
people are getting a fine education?
Does it mean more are getting deep
in debt? The answer to both questions
is yes.
A college degree can be a path to a
good job and a more fulfilling life in
many ways. But when young adults
leave college with a massive debt load,
it limits their ability to do things such
as buy a house.
And what of students who borrow
a good deal of money for college but
then do not complete their degrees?
They face the worst of both worlds:
high student debt but little to show
for it.
In addition, we Americans carry
credit card debt that is nearly as great
as the $1 trillion student loan debt figure.
And most troubling of all, our
national debt is a staggering $15.5 trillion — and growing. Yet Congress and
the president seem incapable of even
beginning to reduce that debt.
How we handle our debt — both
individually and nationally — has
huge implications for our individual
finances and for the future of our
economy as a whole.
But there are painfully few indications that we are ready to confront the
debt problem realistically. So, unfortunately, we will face serious consequences.
Do president prospects suit you?
We all know, of course, that Democratic President Barack Obama is running for, and expecting to win, a second
four-year term in the White House.
Do you still wonder how he won his
first term?
Many Democrats seem to be sure
that Mitt Romney eventually will turn
out to be the Republicans’ presidential
nominee this year. Does Romney excite
you as a prospective president?
But while the Democratic presidential nominee is “certain,” Republican
Rick Santorum is challenging Romney’s
ambitions. Does Santorum inspire you
as a possible presidential winner?
Do you look forward to four more
years for Obama — or four years for
Romney or for Santorum?
It’s getting late!
If not Obama, Romney or Santorum,
then who? When?

Diet is a key
to diabetes help
Re: “Encouragement vs.
diabetes” (Free Press editorial, March 28):
Is there a cure for diabetes Type II, and even help
in decreasing the amount
of insulin necessary for
diabetes Type I (child
onset), without expensive,
risky surgery?
The answer is yes!
Along with refined foods
(white flour, white rice,
cakes, pastries, ref ined
pasta, etc.), both animal
and vegetable fats are more
implicated in diabetes than
sugar.
Sw i t c h i n g t o wh o l e
grains, and a combination of mainly raw (but
also cooked) vegetables
and fruit has completely
cured Type II diabetes in
as little as a few weeks,
and has helped Type I diabetics reduce their insulin
requirements.
“The China Study,” for
instance, is the largest epidemiological study ever
conducted and shows a
definite relation between
the American diet and
diseases such as diabetes,
cancer and heart disease.
Changing one’s diet is
difficult, but if physicians
would educate themselves
and then their patients,
at least giving them the
opportunity to choose for
themselves, diabetes might
become a thing of the past
in this country.
Milk, for instance, has
long been implicated as a
causative factor in Type I
childhood onset diabetes
(even Dr. Spock stopped
recommending cow’s milk
for infants and children).

HAUBRICH
Divine creation
gives life meaning
There are basically two
choices concerning the
origin of life. One choice
states that life began from
nonliving material. The
second choice states that
life was created by the
eternal God.
A textbook currently used at UTC, Biology, eighth edition, 2008,
Thompson Brooks/Cole,
p.447, states: “How did
life begin? Although biologists generally accept
the hypothesis that life
developed from nonliving
matter, exactly how this
process, called chemical
evolution, occurred is not
certain.”
The opening statement
from the Holy Bible in
Genesis 1:1 is “In the beginning God created the heaven and the earth.”
Notice that the scientific
text classifies evolution as
hypothesis. Notice that the
Bible states divine creation
as fact. Since no human
being was present in the
beginning of the universe,
whatever we believe about
the origin of life on planet
Earth must be accepted by
faith.
What if the evolutionary hypothesis is correct,
and there is no God? The
natural conclusion is that
we are all just highly developed animals, and doomed
to live as such. That conce p t p rov i d e s n o re a l
meaning to your lives.
What if the Bible is correct, and there is a God?

13 percent over last

Chattanooga dealers

of the year, according to
vehicle registration totals
released Monday by the

Pinnacle Airlines files for bankruptcy protection
By Samantha Bomkamp
The Associated Press
Pinnacle Airlines Corp., a regional
carrier that flies under contract for
Delta, United, Continental and US
Airways, has filed for bankruptcy
protection to deal with its mounting debt.
The Memphis-based airline said
late Sunday its current business
model isn’t sustainable. It had tried
for months to blend its operating
subsidiaries to save money and
recover from lost business with

Pinnacle Airlines Corp., is one of the Delta

Pinnacle operates about 28 flights per

Here’s a tip: if you owe
money in Tennessee, get a
job waiting tables.
Workers worried about
garnished wages because
of an unpaid bill may have
gained a unique escape
clause, thanks to a Tennessee Appeals Court
judgment against Erlanger
Health System.
The ruling could allow a
worker to virtually escape
wage garnishment if the
majority of his pay consists
of tips, attorneys say.
Ex-wives, hospitals and
any other business that
depends in part on wage
garnishment to collect
debts may have to re-think
their strategy.
“Ultimately, the appeals
court said if you are the
employer, you do not
count tip income for what
is a garnishable wage,” said
Chris Merkal, an attorney
for Shoney’s. “This is new
law.”
Erlanger wouldn’t comment on the case because
of patient privacy laws, but
spokeswoman Pat Charles
said that in order for the
hospital to serve as a safety
net for the region, it must be
able to collect unpaid bills.
“We discount fees based
on income levels and work
out payment plans with
our patients on a regular
basis,” Charles said. “When
patients do not qualify for
free care and do not make
payments within a reasonable time, we refer accounts
to reputable firms for collection.”
The law already exempts
about three-fourths of an
employee’s income from
garnishment, so the only
thing left from a server’s
base salary of about $3 after
the ruling would amount to
75 cents an hour.
And that’s before taxes,
Social Security, Medicare
and health insurance are
taken out.
Gary Lester, who argued
the case for collection firm
Mayfield and Lester, said
the law effectively makes
tipped employees “exempt
from garnishment.”
“The ruling actually
gives preference to those
in the tipped industry over
the guy that works in the
factory; the people who
work for straight hourly
wages,” Lester said.

Slawsa family recipe launches local business
CHEAPEST CARS
TO OPERATE
■ Name: Slawsa
■ Starting up: Odom
invested about $20,000 getting
his recipe ready for mass
production, finding distributors
and marketing the product. He’s
been playing with the idea of
starting a business for about
20 years, but got serious about
selling Slawsa in the last year.
■ Location: Company owner
Judson Odom has lived in
Chattanooga since he was 18,
and runs the business locally.
■ Website: Slawsa.com
■ What is Slawsa? Slawsa
is a condiment for hot dogs,
sandwiches, fish, crackers and
any other food that could use a
little spicing up. The cabbagebased mix of pickled vegetables
has a relish-like consistency
with a bit of a crunch, similar to
the Southern dish chow-chow.
■ Where to get it: Odom is
constantly looking for more
distributors, but Slawsa already
can be found on the shelves of
Ingles. It will start appearing on
Publix shelves on June 15.
■ Family history: Odom has
been eating Slawsa for as long
as he can remember. “It was just
something Mom dreamed up, I
guess,” he said. “Mom was one
of those people who used to pull

something out of her hat and
it was always good.” As Odom
grew up, he shared the recipe
with friends who encouraged
him to start a business with the
food.
■ Future goals: Slawsa is
in a competition in Walmart’s
“Get on the Shelf” program. If
consumers vote Slawsa as one
of the top 10 most desired new
products, Odom’s recipe will
appear on Walmart shelves and
receive marketing help. To vote

The Georgia f.o.b. dock quoted price on
broilers and fryers for this week’s trading is
93.25 cents based on full truck load lots of
ice pack USDA grade “A” sized 21⁄2 to 3 pound
birds. Ninety-seven percent (representing 953
loads) of the loads offered have been confirmed within a range of 82.00 to 99.72 with a
final weighted average of 92.12 f.o.b. dock or
equivalent. The market is generally steady and
the live supply is adequate for a demand ranging mostly normal. Average weights are desirable to occasionally light, but are mostly desirable. Estimated slaughter today is 4,339,300
head. This compares with 4,443,100 head
last Monday.
The f.o.b. dock confirmed final weighted
average prices on ice pack parts based on
truck load and pool truck load lots for this
week’s trading are: Line Run Tenders: $2.05;
Skinless Boneless Breasts: $1.61; Whole
Breasts: $1.0050; Boneless Skinless Thigh
Meat: $1.31; Thighs: 72.00; Drumsticks: 72.00;
Leg Quarters: 54.00; Wings: $1.8850.
Demand on line run tenders is good to normal; skinless boneless breasts, whole breasts,
drumsticks, leg quarters and wings ranges

alleged
payday
loan scam
Jennifer C. Kerr
The Associated Press
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Express
Scripts Inc. said Monday that
it completed its $29.1 billion
acquisition of Medco Health
Solutions Inc., creating the
largest pharmacy benefits
manager in the country by
far.
The closing came after the
Federal Trade Commission
voted to close its investigation into the deal, clearing
the last hurdle in its path.
Express Scripts shares rose
$2.29, or 4.3 percent, to $56.47
in premarket trading.
The deal creates a pharmacy benefits manager, or PBM,
so large that it will handle the
prescriptions of about 135 million people, or more than one
in three Americans.
Both companies touted
the savings and efficiency
that the combination would
create, while others in the
industry have voiced concerns about competition.
Last week, an alliance of
drugstores and community
pharmacists filed a federal
lawsuit to stop the deal
from going through, saying
it would create a giant pharmacy benefits manager with
too much leverage and market share.
Express Scripts Chairman
and CEO George Paz said the
combination of the two companies will both lower costs
and improve patient care.
Pharmacy benefits managers, or PBMs, run prescription drug plans for employers, government agencies
and other clients, using their
large purchasing power to
negotiate lower drug prices.
WASHINGTON — A
payday lending operation
that offers quick cash over
the Internet to desperate
people, and the race-car driver allegedly running it, are
under federal scrutiny after
more than 7,000 complaints
to authorities.
The Federal Trade Commission filed a complaint
Monday in U.S. district court
in Nevada against driver
Scott Tucker, his brother
and several Internet-based
lending companies, including
AMG Services Inc.
Tucker has raced in the
American Le Mans Series. The
FTC charges that he and others
controlled lending companies
that piled on undisclosed and
inflated fees — in some cases
more than triple the amount
borrowed — and then collected on the loans illegally by
threatening borrowers with
arrests and lawsuits.
In one example, a consumer was told that a $500
loan would cost him $650 to
repay. Instead, the FTC says,
the defendants attempted to
charge him $1,925 to pay off
the loan. The agency says he
was threatened with arrest
if he didn’t pay that amount.
Payday loans are typically
small, short-term loans with
high interest rates that are
effectively advances on a borrower’s next paycheck.
According to the FTC, the
lending operation involving
Tucker has claimed in legal
proceedings that it is affiliated
with Native American tribes and
immune from legal action.

Traders gather at the post that handles Global Payments Inc. on the floor of the
New York Stock Exchange on Monday in New York. Visa Inc. has dropped the card
processor involved in a massive data breach from its registry of providers that meet
data security standards, but Visa may reinstate it after a new compliance report.
Global Payments says
Visa drops it after breach
The Associated Press
ATLANTA — Visa Inc.
has dropped the card processor involved in a massive
data breach from its registry
of providers that meet data
security standards.
Global Payments CEO
Paul Garcia noted that the
company continues to process Visa transactions, but
that being dropped from the
registry “could give our partners some pause that they’re
doing business with someone
who experienced a breach.”
Garcia said he expects
Global Payments to be reinstated once it has been issued
a new report of compliance.
But he declined to specify
when that might be. He said
the situation is “absolutely
contained” but that the
investigation is continuing
and that parts of it still need
to be resolved.
Global Payments says the
data breach may affect less
than 1.5 million credit cards
from various issuers in North
America. The company said
that credit card data may
have been stolen, but that
cardholder names, addresses
and Social Security numbers
were not obtained.
The company said it will
set up a website later Monday
to help consumers who might
be affected by the breach.
Both Visa and MasterCard say their own systems
weren’t compromised.
Visa and MasterCard had
said Friday that they notified their card holders of the
potential for identity theft
and illicit charges because
of the breach.
Aside from the U.S., Global Payments provides its services to government agencies, businesses and others
in Canada, Europe and the
Asia-Pacific region.
The company said it continues to work with regulators,
industry third parties and law
enforcement to help in the
effort to minimize the potential
impact on credit cardholders.
Last June, hackers stole
information for 360,000 credit card accounts at Citigroup.
In the past year, there have
been high-profile data attacks
against the International Monetary Fund, National Public
Radio, Google and Sony’s
PlayStation Network.
For the three months ended
Feb. 29, the company reported
net income of $57.9 million, or
73 cents per share.

A saleswoman arranges a display in an Avon store in
New York. Struggling Avon Products Inc. is rejecting a
buyout offer worth about $10 billion from beauty company Coty Inc.
NEW YORK — Coty
came calling, but Avon
slammed the door.
Struggling cosmetics seller
Avon Products Inc. on Monday rejected a $10 billion
buyout offer from Coty Inc.,
a smaller beauty products
maker looking to capitalize
on Avon’s business woes. The
$23.25-per-share bid marked a
20 percent premium to Avon’s
closing stock price Friday.
Avon said that was too low.
But investors frustrated with
the company’s shrinking profits and disappointing sales
growth sent the stock soaring
17 percent on the news.
It’s been a steep slide for
an American icon. Founded
in 1886, Avon became a fixture in households across the
country as its legions of “Avon
ladies” went door to door selling makeup to family, friends
and acquaintances. But North
American sales have long
been in decline. Now, about
80 percent of Avon’s $11 billion in annual revenue comes
from overseas.
The company’s profit has
shrunk over the past three
years.

Erlanger first sued to
obtain $537 it claimed it was
owed from former patient
Angela Strong, according to
court documents.
The hospital pressed
Shoney’s to pull money from
her wages to pay the bill.
But Shoney’s argued that
the tips, which are paid
directly to Strong by her customers, never come under
its control and therefore
couldn’t be included in the
calculation for how much to
garnish.
Though courts have traditionally ruled that the tips
are fair game for income tax
and minimum wage calculation purposes, the Tennessee
Court of Appeals in Knoxville held that “tips are not
to be included in the calculation of disposable earnings
for the purposes of garnishment.”
Lester, who collects debts
for Erlanger, said the ruling
elevates tipped employees
into a special class, exempt
from paying debts that other
workers must pay.
“It’s just not fair to allow
the tipped employees to have,
in essence, a preference over
all the others,” he said.
Mayfield and Lester have
about two months to decide
whether to appeal to the
state’s Supreme Court.

Pinnacle, which mostly
flies between major airports in the East including
Chattanooga’s Metropolitan
Airport, has been hurt by
rising costs and integration
problems. It plans to wind
down the United Express
flights it operates for United
Continental Holdings Inc.
It will continue Delta Connection flights for Delta Air
Lines Inc. It’s already in the
process of winding down its
service with US Airways.
Pinnacle’s Colgan Air subsidiary operated a plane that
crashed into a home near
Buffalo, N.Y., in 2009, killing
50 people. It was operating
under the banner of Continental Connection. With the
termination of contracts with
US Airways and United, Pinnacle will end flying at Colgan Air.
The airline lost $8.8 million in the first nine months
of 2011 in contrast to a profit
of $17 million in the same
period a year earlier. Revenue
improved in that time, but
costs accelerated at a faster
pace. Traffic in the first two
months of the year was virtually flat while the carrier
dramatically scaled back its
number of available seats.
After a review, the company’s
board decided that reorganization under Chapter 11 was
its best option.
With Pinnacle’s filing,

Overall, the report shows
flying is getting better even
through passengers grappling with fare increases,
canceled routes and a seemingly endless parade of new
fees may not feel that way,
said Dean Headley, a business professor at Wichita
State University who has cowritten the annual report for
22 years.
Airlines are slowly,
steadily recovering from
their meltdown five years
ago, when, under the strain
of near-record consumer
travel demand, their performance tanked, he said.
Industry performance for
all four measurements was
slightly better in 2011 compared with 2010.
“Airlines are f inally
catching up with what their
promise is, which is getting
you there on time 80 percent of the time with your
bags,” Headley said.
BIN SPACE CHARGES
Allegiant Air will charge
passengers $35 to carry
their own bag on board
the plane and stow it in
an overhead bin. The
change starts with flights
booked Wednesday, said
spokesman Brian Davis.
Each passenger will be
allowed to carry one smaller
bag that fits under a seat for
free. Allegiant carries traffic
for United and Delta.

American Eagle filed along
with American Airlines
under parent company AMR
Corp. in November.
Pinnacle said it will ask
its pilots and other employees, both union and nonunion, to help it cut costs.
That almost certainly means
that some of the company’s
7,800 employees will lose
their jobs.
The airline is also examining its overall business structure and executive functions
for possible ways to streamline its operation.
Pinnacle’s President and
CEO Sean Menke also oversaw a Chapter 11 filing at
Frontier Airlines. Pinnacle

officer to Spirit Airlines Inc.
this month.
Pinnacle has received a
commitment for $74.3 million in debtor-in-possession
financing from Delta that

Monday.

the 43rd time an airline has
sought bankruptcy protection since the Sept. 11 attacks,

“When it’s 70 degrees in
February, rather than 20 to
30 degrees with snow, people
are more apt to come out and
buy a car,” he said. “We don’t
know if we pulled in some
sales early as a result, but I
think the whole year looks
to be better.”
At Hunt Nissan, Ken Hunt
said he is enjoying doubledigit sales gains for both new
and used vehicles “and we’re
expecting a very strong year”
with sales projected to be up
as much as 20 percent for all
of 2012.
Corey Choate, general manager for Economy
Honda, said his dealership
is setting new sales records
this year with vehicle sales
up by more than 16 percent
in the first quarter.
“Obviously, the new car
market is better this year
because consumers are more
confident about the economy and there is still a lot of
pent-up demand from when
sales were down during the
recession,” Choate said. “But
we’ve gotten aggressive on
our prices and we’re going
to do everything we can to
take care of our customers
so they don’t go to another
market and buy elsewhere.”
Economy Honda boosted
its sales last year to a record
high and expects even stronger sales in 2012, both for
new and used vehicles, Choate said.

Then again, he may never
again have a talent like freshman
Anthony Davis, who scored all
of six points in the Wildcats’
67-59 victory in Monday night’s
NCAA title game but walked
away with MVP honors.
“That’s just one of the things
that makes him great,” teammate Terrence Jones said as

“Ant doesn’t have to score to

Instead, he pulled down 16
rebounds, blocked six shots and
led the Wildcats in assists with
five and steals with three.
“That’s our game,” said point
guard Marquis Teague, whose
14 points backed up teammate
Doron Lamb’s 22 for scoring
honors. “No matter what else is

Kentucky guard Darius Miller (1) and Kansas star forward Thomas Robinson (0) battle for the ball
during the first half of the NCAA Division I championship game Monday night in New Orleans.
NEW ORLEANS — No matter where Anthony Davis and his
buddies go to make their millions,
their ol’ Kentucky home will long
remember this championship season.
The Wildcats hit the jackpot
with their lottery picks Monday
night, ignoring Davis’ bad shooting night and parlaying a roster
full of NBA talent into a 67-59 victory over Kansas for the program’s
eighth national title — and its first
since 1998.
The one-and-doners did it in
a wire-to-wire victory — a little
dicey at the end — to cap a season
in which anything less than bringing a title back to the Bluegrass
State would have been a downer.
They got coach John Calipari to
his first title in four trips to the
Final Four with three different
schools.
“This is not about me. This is
about these 13 players,” Calipari
said. “This is about the Big Blue
Nation.”
Doron Lamb, a sophomore
with first-round-draft-pick possibilities, led the Wildcats (38-2)
with 22 points, including back-toback 3-pointers that put them up
by 16 with 10 minutes left.
The Jayhawks (32-7), kings of
the comeback all season, fought to
the finish and trimmed that deficit
to five with 1:37 left. But Kentucky
made five free throws down the
stretch to seal the win
Davis’ fellow lottery prospect,
Michael Kidd-Gilchrist, was
another headliner, creating space
for himself to score all 11 of his
points in the first half.

UT’s Brewer back at safety NBA
EASTERN
CONFERENCE
KNOXVILLE — Brent Brewer’s
return to safety is for his own safety,
though the rising junior still sees it as an
opportunity to prove he can play at two
levels of Tennessee’s new 3-4 defense.
Coming off an anterior cruciate
ligament injury suffered in UT’s loss
to South Carolina late last October,
Brewer is now working with the safeties after beginning spring practice as
an outside linebacker.
“I was doing good at linebacker,”
Brewer said after Monday morning’s
practice, the Volunteers’ fifth of the
spring. “They just felt we had more
depth at linebacker than safety.
“I can do more. I don’t have to go
against the offensive linemen and get
tangled up with them. I can do a lot more
just running around in open space.”
The 6-foot-1, 220-pounder began
his sophomore season as UT’s strong
safety, though the former minor-league
baseball player struggled to produce.
Brewer made 30 tackles in the last
seven games of his freshman year, but
he had just 23 in eight games before
his injury last season. He’s better playing near the line of scrimmage than in
coverage, which prompted his move to
strongside (Sam) linebacker.
His knee, though, has kicked him
back to safety for the time being.
“It’s hard to really work him in a lot
of contact at Sam,” UT coach Derek
Dooley said. “There’s no sense in sitting there for 15 practices and he can’t
do much at Sam ’backer, so we put him
back at safety. I said when we started
him at Sam, it didn’t mean he was
going to be there permanently.
“This allows him to get a lot of reps
and pattern-match. He’s still going to
probably play ‘Money,’ which is kind of
a sub linebacker when they go nickel.
It just allows us to work him a little bit
more, that’s all.”
Brewer said he thought his flexibility could help him and the overall
defense. He admitted he’s still regaining his conditioning following his injury, though he believes he’s ahead of
schedule coming off the injury. Learning two positions in a complex defense
might be the bigger challenge.
“It’s difficult,” he said. “I’m in my
playbook all day every day. I’ve got to
learn both, and there’s a lot of checks
and stuff.”
Feeling the blues
Dooley halted practice in the first
half hour Monday and gathered the
team on the large “T” logo on the 50yard line of the indoor practice facility in the Neyland-Thompson Sports
Center. He proceeded to rip into the
players about the team’s overall atti-

we’re focusing on moving
forward.”
At one point last week,
rumors swirled that Rogers
might be moving forward at
Georgia State. He referenced
the Panthers on his Twitter
account, and the Scout.com
site covering the program
reported Rogers was in
the process of transferring.
Dooley shot those down last
week, and Rogers said Monday there was “no consideration” of leaving UT.
“Maybe I need to do a
little better job with tweets,
letting everybody know
what’s really actually going
on so next time it won’t be
misinterpreted,” he added.
“I mean, sometimes you
come to a point in your life
where you have to be strong
about things. I had a little
weak moment, and that’s
gone behind me and behind
the team now.”

Tennessee’s Brent Brewer began work this spring at outside linebacker
but has returned to a safety position.
tude and effort. He talked to them
after practice about standards.
“Every day it’s going to get challenged to see if you are really committed to it, and you have to exercise a
level of grit, an ability to persist in the
face of difficulty,” Dooley said. “You
also need some leadership around you
to affect others in a positive way. We’ve
got to keep working on those things.
“We’re still getting affected when
we’re nicked, when it’s hot, ‘I’m tired’
and we start seeing a little bit of dragging. That’s just something we’ve got
to keep harping on over and over
and over and over. Once we get that
standard and we don’t compromise it,
we’re going to be OK.”
Dooley called it the “Monday morning blues,” or the usual weekend hangover, as the root of the sluggishness.
“You can’t have Monday and you
wait till Tuesday to get going,” he
said. “You’ve got to go now. We had
to remind them of that a little bit.”
Peterman’s promise
Midterm enrollee Nathan Peterman continues to draw rave reviews.
The 6-2, 220-pound quarterback from
Jacksonville brought the mix of arm
strength, accuracy and mobility that
made him attractive as a recruit to
UT. Also a cerebral player, Peterman
is battling for backup quarterback spot
with Justin Worley, who started three
games last season when Tyler Bray
morning workouts in February, Rogers denied any
issues with UT’s strength
and conditioning staff.
“That was all me focusing on things,” he said. “I
wanted to get a lot of school
stuff done, and I got all that
stuff done. Everything like
that is right.
“No issues. Maybe a few
misunderstandings, but
nothing too serious that
any football team around
doesn’t have.”
Rogers noted a conversation he had with quarterback Tyler Bray and fellow
receiver Justin Hunter in
which they discussed getting “on the right track.”
Hunter, who continues to
practice without setbacks
as he returns from an ACL
injury, kept referencing his
teammate’s desire to work.
“He’s like our brother, so
if he had a problem, we were
going to be there to help him
with it,” Hunter said. “He just
needed to calm down. The
talk that we had with him
put him at 110 percent, so he
doesn’t have any more distractions. He’s a hard worker
was hurt.
“He’s got a lot of promise,” Dooley
said. “We have three really good players at that position, which is rare for
any program, and they’re young. I’m
excited about what we’ve got there.
“I think all three of them are good
for each other because they’re all
capable. Nathan just doesn’t have any
experience. I think Justin, him having
played last year, it’s going to help.”
Free tickets
UT announced Monday that admission to the Orange & White Game on
April 21 will be free this season. The
game, which will conclude the Vols’
spring practice, is scheduled to start
at 2:30 p.m. The one-hour autograph
session with Dooley, assistant coaches
and Vol players will be held at the
stadium at 12:15 p.m.
“A significant part of what makes
Tennessee such a special place is the
outstanding support of our passionate and loyal fans,” UT athletic director Dave Hart said in the university’s
release. “We wanted to express our
appreciation to our fan base in a tangible and visible manner.”
Two teams of UT lettermen will
play a flag football game during halftime of the game.

and he’s ready to work.
“It’s in the past. I know
he’s here to work now. He
threw that out the window
and he’s ready.”
Dooley said the important conversation is a reflection of the family feeling in
UT’s program.
“Those guys have got
to play together and work
together,” the coach said.
“They spend a lot of hours
together, and they’ve got
to be able to iron out any
differences they have. But
I know this: Everybody in
our organization, there’s a
lot of love, and sometimes
love is tough love and that’s
part of parenting. But that
kind of player involvement
is critical on a team.”
Rogers’ presence also is
critical for the Vols’ success.
With Hunter and Bray hurt
last season, he was UT’s
primary offensive weapon.
He caught 67 passes for
1,040 yards and nine touchdowns despite playing on
an offense with three different quarterbacks and the
nation’s 116th-ranked rushing attack.

the Broncos, Titans, Falcons, Giants,
Patriots, Steelers and Saints. The
Steelers, Falcons, Bears, Seahawks,
Dolphins and Vikings all had quarterback coaches present.
Coleman wasn’t the only former
Moc happy with his day. Chris LewisHarris, who split time between cornerback and safety during his career, also
tested well. So did Bradford.
Lewis-Harris and Bradford both ran
the 40-yard dash between 4.4 and 4.5 seconds. Unofficially, Bradford’s time was
4.43 and the defender’s was 4.47. Coleman’s unofficial time was 4.87. Bradford
had the highest vertical leap at 36 inches,
one more than Lewis-Harris.
Lewis-Harris and former Baylor
and Maryville College receiver Wesley Idlette had 18 repetitions (of 225
pounds) on the bench press, the most
of the day.
“All you can ask for is a chance, and
today I got a chance to show what I
could do,” said Lewis-Harris, a second-team All-Southern Conference
player in 2011.

Lewis-Harris sprints during pro day
at Finley Stadium.
At least half of the current Mocs
came out for the pro day, and they
were joined by more than a dozen former players, as well as a small crowd
of parents and UTC fans.
The number of scouts and coaches on
hand was slightly larger than last year,
“I think we’re a lot better
offense with him and Justin,” fifth-year senior cornerback Prentiss Waggner
said, using the phrase “no
biggie” to describe the situation. “You can’t really double
either one because the other
one will kill you. I think with
both of them out there, our
offense is explosive.”
Dooley said Rogers’ leash
moving forward is no shorter than any other player’s.
“We don’t have different
standards, despite what a
lot of people think,” he said.
“Does that mean we treat
everybody the same? No.
We have some big-picture
standards that it’s black-andwhite how we handle them,
but how we manage it with
each player is very different
depending on what their
personality is and depending on a lot of things.
“The leash is similar, but
there’s also a break point on
every player’s.”

when 2011 fifth-round draft pick Buster
Skrine was performing. The Cleveland
Browns cornerback was among the former players in attendance, and UTC
coach Russ Huesman said all the attention Mocs are getting from the NFL can
only help the program.
“I think it’s huge exposure any time
you get something like this,” he said.
“The number of scouts and coaches
that were out here was tremendous.”
Also working out Monday were former UTC running back Erroll Wynn,
who finished his career in 2010, as well
as former Western Michigan tight end
Dallas Walker.
Coleman, Bradford, Benford and
Walker spent several days practicing
together leading up to Monday, working on their timing together. Coleman
said they had a script of more than 40
throws that they went through.
“They looked great and did, I thought,
a really good job,” Coleman said. “I know
they were getting tired because they
did a lot of running and that sometimes
showed on the deep balls, but overall it
was a really successful day.”

the WNBA’s Indiana Fever.
Her 35 years in the profession include eight years as
head coach at Kentucky and
Florida. DeMoss spent the
past two seasons at Tennessee and 18 years previously
with the Lady Vols. She said
in a news release from Tennessee she’s always wanted
to coach in the WNBA.
■ AUBURN, Ala. —
Terri Williams-Flournoy,
who guided Georgetown to
the past three NCAA women’s basketball tournaments,
is taking over as coach at
Auburn, replacing Nell Fortner. The former Penn State
player led Georgetown to the
program’s best four-year run
starting in 2008, going 9341 and winning at least one
game in all three NCAA trips
during that span.

working five furlongs in
1:01.20 at Churchill Downs’
trackside training center over
the weekend, 2-5 favorite
Union Rags was finishing a
less-than-invincible looking
third behind Take Charge
Indy in the $1 million Florida Derby at Gulfstream

Ray new coach
for Miss. State
By David Brandt
The Associated Press
STARKVILLE, Miss.
— New Mississippi State
basketball coach Rick Ray
doesn’t sound like a man
ready for a long rebuilding
process.
“We will be successful,”
Ray said. “I don’t know how
to lose. All if have known is
winning my whole life.”
Ray was introduced as
Mississippi State’s head basketball coach Monday at
Humphrey Coliseum after a
nearly three-week coaching
search. He promised to bring
a hard-nosed approach to the
program.
The 40-year-old spent
the last two years as the top
assistant at Clemson. He’s
also been an assistant coach
at Purdue, Northern Illinois
and Indiana State.
Ray touted his experience
at hard-nosed programs —
especially Purdue and Indiana State — as an indicator
of how the Bulldogs’ program
would be run. He took the

Mixed calls
Officials still adjusting to block-charge
Staff Writer
NEW ORLEANS
— It has happened more
than once in every game
throughout this NCAA
basketball tournament. An
offensive player drives to
the rim. A defensive player
appears to get there late.
There’s a collision around
the arc that the NCAA has
added under the basket to
make the block-charge call
easier to officiate.
The referee whistles
a charge. A video replay
appears to indicate a block.

boos.
Is this any way to officiate March Madness?
“I’d like to see it be more
consistent,” said Pete Gillen,
who coached Providence
over the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga in
the 1997 Sweet 16 and now
does television work.
“I like the idea of the
arc, but there are too many
charges called. The defensive player needs to be set
for at least three-quarters
of a second. You need to
be set before the offensive player leaves his feet.
Otherwise, it should be a
block.”

16 rebounds, six blocks, five assists
and three steals — and made his only
field goal with 5:13 left in the game. It
was a sure-fire illustration of how the
6-foot-10 freshman can exert his will
on a game even on a rare night when
the shot isn’t falling.
“Well, it’s not me, it’s these guys
behind me,” Davis said after his 1-for10 performance. “They led us this whole
tournament. This whole game I was
struggling offensively, and I told my
team, ‘Every time down, you all score
the ball; I’m just going to defend and
rebound.’”
It helps to have teammates like
his. Davis is the likely first pick in the
draft should he choose to come out,
and Kidd-Gilchrist won’t be far behind.
Another first-round prospect, freshman
Marquis Teague, scored 14 points. Yet
another, sophomore Terrence Jones,
had nine points, seven rebounds and
two of Kentucky’s 11 blocked shots.
“We’ve got a lot of great players on
this team,”’ Teague said. “Other players
stepped up and made plays. He had
confidence in us to make plays and
that’s what we tried to do.”
Kansas also has a lottery pick in AP
All-American Thomas Robinson. But
he was harassed all night by Davis and
Jones and finished with 18 points and
17 rebounds on a frustrating evening
nonetheless.
Calipari avenged a final-game loss
to Kansas coach Bill Self in 2008 when
— Manhattan and New
Mexico — and served as a
commentator for ESPN.
“The rule has been an
adjustment for players,
coaches and officials,” he
said of the arc that was
supposed to make it easier
for officials, with collisions
outside the arc usually
being ruled as charges and
those inside the arc (under
the basket) ruled as blocks,
similar to the NBA.
“Many top officials I’ve
talked to are still learning
to look for the players’ feet
outside the arc, as well as
the legal guarding position
of the defender. Over time,
the arc is going to make
the officials’ job easier, but
they’re not there yet. Still,
I think they’re getting it
right at at least the same
rate they did — which is
probably around 96 percent — before the arc was
painted on the floor.”
Atlanta host in 2013
The 75th Final Four
comes to Atlanta’s Georgia
Dome next spring, with the
national semifinals scheduled for April 6 and the final
to be played on April 8.
But there’s much work
to do before that game, particularly for Khalil Johnson,
the former chief operating
officer for the World Congress Center and Georgia
Dome who now advises the
NCAA on its championships, especially the Final
Four.
Though Johnson was
still busy solving problems
for this Final Four on Monday night, he also has spent
a good deal of time the past
few days thinking about
next year’s event.
“It takes almost a month
to set it up and take it
down,” he said. “It’s a long
process, obviously a big
event, and you want to get
everything right.”
Other than Atlanta, the
only regional sites remotely
close to Chattanooga will
be Dayton, Ohio — which
will host the “First Four”
play-in games as well as a
second- and third-round
site — and Lexington, Ky.,
which also will be a second- and third-round site.
Regional final sites are
Dallas (South), Indianapolis (Midwest) and Los
Angeles (West). The East
remains undecided, though
Madison Square Garden
appears to be the favorite
at this point.

was a great season in Lawrence, though,
considering where the Jayhawks began.
Kansas lost four of its top five scorers off last year’s roster. There were
times early in the season when Self
and his old buddy and mentor, Larry
Brown, would stand around at practices and wonder if this was a team
that could even make the NCAA tournament. It did — and won its eighth
straight conference title.
None of this, however, was for the
faint of heart. The Jayhawks trailed
by double digits in three of their five
tournament games leading to the final
and played every game down to the
wire. They fell behind by 18 late in
the first half of this one, and this time,
there was no full comeback to be made
— not against these guys.
Davis went only 1-for-10 from the
floor, but he realized early this was
no shoot-first night for him at the
Superdome. Sporting his near-unibrow, which the UK Wildcat mascot
also decided to paste on, he endured
the worst shooting night of a short

Braves reliever
stopped for DUI
The Associated Press
L AW R E N C EV I L L E ,
Ga. — Atlanta Braves relief
pitcher Cristhian Martinez
was arrested early Monday
and charged with drunken
driving after police saw him
weaving in and out of a lane
while driving slowly on a
major Atlanta highway.
Martinez was stopped on
Interstate 85 and charged
with impeding the flow of
traffic, improper lane change
and DUI after his blood
alcohol level registered at
0.13, said Gwinnett County
Police Corporal Jake Smith.
The legal limit in Georgia is
0.08.
He was booked into the
Gwinnett County Detention Center at 4:24 a.m. and
released on bond of about
$1,600 a few hours later.
Team officials said in a
released statement they were
“very concerned” to learn of
Martinez’s arrest and that he
will be required to be evaluated by an independent professional.
Martinez, 30, had secured
a spot in Atlanta’s bullpen
after a solid spring training
performance.
Hudson goes 2 innings
At Kissimmee, Fla., Braves
pitching ace Tim Hudson
made his first appearance of
the spring, allowing an infield
single over two innings in
an 8-2 loss to the New York
Mets.
Ruben Tejada hit a threerun homer and Bobby Parnell allowed two hits in three
innings for New York.
Hudson went 16-10 with
a 3.23 ERA last season but
had back surgery during the
offseason and isn’t expected
back until May. He said he
felt fine after his two innings
and could have gone longer.
The Mets scored four
runs in the ninth, two on
bases-loaded walks to Rafael Fernandez and Richard
Lucas. Rather than having a
starter face a National League
East rival, Parnell, who made
60 relief appearances year,
started for the Mets.
Freddie Freeman and
Jordan Parraz homered for
the Braves, while Brandon
Beachy allowed four runs on
seven hits in six innings.
Gearrin sent down
Cory Gearrin, the relief
pitcher from Rhea County,
was among
victims of
the Braves’
last cuts.
He and
Julio Teheran, who
was battling for
a role in
the startCory Gearrin ing rotation, were
optioned to Gwinnett of the
International League.
Gearrin had a 3.38 ERA
2
over 10 ⁄3 innings this spring,
and sources close to the
team said the 25-year-old
right-hander figures to be in
the Braves’ bullpen at some
point this season. Teheran
had an inflated 9.37 ERA over
1
16 ⁄3 innings this spring.
Meanwhile, it was
announced that rookie Jordan Pastornicky has won
the starting shortstop’s job
over Andrelton Simmons.
Pastornicky, acquired from
the Blue Jays in the Yunel
Escobar deal, batted .314
with seven homers, 45
RBIs and 27 stolen bases in
stops at Class AA and Class
AAA.
The Braves reassigned
catchers J.C. Boscan and
Jose Yepez, Simmons, fellow
infielders Drew Sutton and
Josh Wilson and outfielders
Luis Durango and Parraz to
their minor league camp.

double figures by halftime Monday.
percent. No big deal. He set the tone
early on defense, swatting Robinson’s
shot twice, grabbing rebounds, making
pretty bounce passes for assists.
Early in the second half, he made
a steal that also could have been an
assist, knocking the ball out of Robinson’s hands and directly to Jones, who
dunked for a 46-30 lead.
Then, finally, with 5:13 left in the
game, he spotted up for a 15-foot jumper from the baseline that swished. The
crowd, a little more full of Kentucky
fans than Kansas, went crazy. If this
guy only stays one year and only makes
one shot, they’re fine with that.

and grabbed a cowbell, ringing it for several seconds to
applause from the hundreds
of fans who came to listen to
the new coach.
“The system we will run is
based on integrity,” Ray said.
“I believe you win by doing
things the right way. I want
to make sure we put a team
on this court that you guys
are proud of.”
Ray replaces Rick Stansbury, who retired in March
after 14 seasons leading the
program.
Athletic director Scott
Stricklin said Ray “is ready to
be a head coach” after consistently reaching the NCAA
tournament as an assistant. He
is the first black men’s basketball coach in school history.
“As I would talk to basketball people and say, hey, this
is what I’m looking for, I want
somebody who is going to
fit these attributes, his name
kept coming up,” Stricklin
said. “It’s a name I kept on
the list, and it got to the point
where I said I probably need
to talk to this guy.”

They played defense so
well that Kansas hit only
35.5 percent of its shots in
the game and had 11 of them
blocked.
A single play to showcase
Davis’ domination: In the
final seconds, desperate to hit
a 3-pointer to cut the margin
to three, the Jayhawks’ Elijah Johnson — who finished
with 13 points and hit three
3s — started to shoot from
the corner but was forced to
stop when Davis stepped out
to help, his 6-foot-9 frame
and 7-5 wingspan spooking
Johnson into a travel.
Game over.
It had looked over from
early in the first half, as Kentucky roared to lead by 18
points, settling for a 14-point
cushion (41-27) at the break.
And so the question of
whether Coach Cal’s latest
collection of one-and-dones
could finish No. 1 seemed
already settled. He had professed throughout this tournament not to care. And he’s
accomplished more than
almost any active coach not
named Mike Krzyzewski.
He’s one of only two
coaches in the history of the
sport to take three different
schools to No. 1 — the other
being former St. John’s/North
Carolina/South Carolina
great Frank McGuire.
He’s also one of only two
active coaches to take three
different schools to the Final
Four, the other being Louisville’s Rick Pitino.
But none of that cuts Calipari much slack in some circles. They remember you for
NCAA titles, and the 53-yearold Calipari had yet to win
one before Monday night,
despite having reached four
Final Fours in his career.
At halftime that didn’t
seem a concern. The band
The Fray had started things
off with the national anthem,
but the first half wasn’t so
much about both Kansas and
Kentucky joining the fray as
it was the Jayhawks fraying
around the edges.
At the break, the Cats
were up 25-14 on the boards
and were outshooting the
Jayhawks from the field, 53
percent to 33 percent, and
already had two double-figure scorers — Lamb with 12
points and Michael Kidd-Gilchrist with 11.
A single stat to show how
deep and versatile this Kentucky was this season: Davis
— honored as the national
player of the year no fewer
than five times in the last two
weeks — didn’t score a point
in the opening period.
But then Kansas caught
life, just as it had against
Cal’s Memphis team in 2008.
It pulled within nine with a
little over four minutes to
play. It had UK playing not
to lose. Then it cut the margin to five.
Could this be 2008 all
over again, Self besting Cal
when it mattered most?
But then Davis stepped
out to befuddle Johnson, the
game ended and the partying
began.
“We’re where we wanted
to be all season,” Teague said.
“We’re No. 1.”

TSSAA to hear mat proposal
By Ward Gossett
Staff Writer
It’s possible that a split in Division
I wrestling, recognizing AAA and A/
AA state champions, could become a
Tennessee high school reality by the
2013-14 school year.
Mark Reeves, an assistant executive director with the TSSAA, confirmed Monday that a proposal would
be presented to the organization’s
Board of Control at its June meeting
and that the state governing body was
exploring options to accommodate
the change.
“I don’t know if it’s going to happen, but the vote will take place at the
June meeting when the board meets
to consider [all] sports classification
changes,” Reeves said.
The board is expected also to consider whether to keep six public school
divisions for the football playoffs or
return to five.
If the board accepts the wrestling
proposal, which is to be submitted by
Martiin Luther King coach Paul Bass,
it is likely that the Division I traditional tournament would drop from 32
to 24 qualifiers for Class AAA and that
the A/AA tournament would have 12man brackets. Reeves said the possible
changes would not affect Division II,
which currently has a nonqualifying
16-man tournament, or the girls’ tournament, which still has invitational
status.
Numerous Division I coaches were
hopeful of keeping the 32-man AAA
bracket and adding a 16-man A/AA
bracket.
Hixson coach Garrick Hall, whose
team would be in the new A/AA tournament, said he did not like the 24/12
option.
“Ultimately you’d like to grow the
sport, but this is almost like cutting
off a hand,” Hall said.
“If you to go with 32and 16-man brackets,
it might ultimately
grown the sport. I like
the way it is to a certain point, but I’d also
like to take more kids
and have more medals
in the state.”
Garrick Hall
If it is a matter of
time constraints, Hall said, maybe the
state could look at making consolation
matches three or four minutes rather
than five, going with three one-minute
periods or a two-minute period and
two one-minute periods.
Hall also is concerned about the
current Region 4 tournament, especially if teams are allowed only two
qualifiers. The current Region 4 field,
excluding AAA schools Soddy-Daisy
and Ooltewah, has 12 teams with Central, Hixson and Notre Dame having
won seven of the eight A/AA state
duals championships.
One major worry in this area is
Soddy-Daisy, Cleveland and Bradley
Central winding up in the same region.
Those teams have won the last 13 traditional championships.
“One of the concerns and certainly
one we’d want to listen to if is you
have some of the best teams all in the
same area. It’s a legitimate concern,”
Reeves said.
One idea the TSSAA is considering
is eliminating the eight region tournaments and going with four “super
regionals” much like the current track
and field format with six medalists
advancing from each to the state tournament.
“If the board approves an A/Double-A tournament, we have to figure
out which route Triple-A would go,”
Reeves said. “We’re working at looking
at hypothetical regions. We have also
looked at eight regions and we have
even looked at six regions.
“What we don’t want to do is add
another [qualifying] tournament. We
would like to keep the calendar the
same whether it’s region or sectional
tournaments. We might even look at
less qualifers from Memphis, which
has 12 [AAA wrestling] teams total.”
As for the classification debate on
football, Reeves said the TSSAA sent
out a survey to the 300-plus footballplaying schools asking for responses
signed by principals. He said only
slightly more than half the schools had
bothered to respond and that those
responses were close to a 50-50 split.

Louisville power set for tourney
Staff Reports
Soddy-Daisy is ranked
No. 19 in the USA Today/

Association high school
softball poll and No. 24
in the MaxPreps Xcellent
25 but won’t be the only
nationally ranked team in
its 22nd Lady Trojan Invitational this weekend.
Ballard (10-0), rated No.
25 in the USA Today/NFCA
poll, is making the trip from
Louisville, Ky.
The University of Tennessee’s Ralph Weekly,
who coached first-team
All-American India Chiles,
a Ballard graduate, helped
with the connection between
the schools. One of the Lady
Bruins’ standouts this season
is sophomore Jessica Adell,
a speedy center fielder and
pitcher who already has
committed to UT.
Ballard coach Alan Jones
said his team played the
Lady Trojans to a scoreless
tie in pool play in 2008 in
the Bob Jones tournament
at Huntsville, Ala. He also
mentioned entrants Brentwood High and Baylor as
programs he’s familiar
with.
“I haven’t looked that
closely at the schedule
yet, but I know some of
the teams playing in it,”
Jones said. “I’m sure it’s
going to be a great tournament.”
Games are scheduled to
get under way Thursday
afternoon at Soddy-Daisy
High School with Obion
County Central playing
Grace Academy at 4:30, followed by East Hamilton vs.
Soddy-Daisy at 6:30. The
rest of the tournament will
be played on four fields at
Soddy Lake Kids’ Park with
Friday’s pool-play schedule
slated to start at 9 a.m. and
final games set for 9 p.m.
Based on pool records,
teams will be placed in
either Gold or Silver brackets for single-elimination.
The Silver championship is
scheduled Saturday afternoon at 4:30 with the Gold
final at 5.
Harris allowed visitors
Soddy-Daisy baseball
player Talon Harris, injured
in a preseason automobile accident, remains in
Erlanger’s intensive care
unit but now is in what Trojans coach Jared Hensley
called “intermediate ICU.”
He is in a private room and
can have visits between the
hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m.,
the coach said.
Hensley also said that
Harris, who sustained facial,
head, pelvic and leg injuries,
had begun voluntary movement of his arms.
“He still can’t talk
because of the tracheotomy,
but he’s alert. His eyes stay
focused on you when you’re
talking to him,” the coach
said.
Byerley to Tusculum
Hixson’s Brianna Byerley has accepted a softball
scholarship offer from Tusculum College and plans to
sign next month.
She already had applied
and been accepted by the
NCAA Division II school in
Greeneville, Tenn., before
visiting in October on “prospect day.” She said it was
then she fell in love with
Tusculum and its campus.
Byerley led the Lady
Wildcats in batting last
season and is expected to
be an offensive leader again
this year.
“She told me a couple
of weeks ago their coach
[Fred Gillum] really liked
her swing,” Hixson coach
Jayme Putman said.
“She’s got

and a good
eye.”

Here Then Gone
Gordon, Guerra, Jansen among former Lookouts playing for Dodgers
The Associated Press
Staff File Photo by Dan Henry
Current Los Angeles Dodgers shortstop Dee Gordon makes a relay throw to first in 2010 for the Chattanooga Lookouts against Mobile.
READY TO ROLL
STILL BATTLING
■ Shortstop Dee Gordon
— Gordon hit .277 in 133 games
with the Lookouts in 2010,
driving in 39 runs and stealing
53 bases. He made his bigleague debut last season and
played 56 games, hitting .304
and collecting 24 steals. Gordon
is a former Baseball America
top organizational prospect who
hasn’t disappointed at any stage
along the way.
■ Pitcher Javy Guerra — Guerra
played for the Lookouts during the
2009-11 seasons, but he didn’t
stick around long last year. After
going 1-0 with a 1.06 ERA in 14
appearances, he was promoted to
Los Angeles, where in 47 games
he went 2-2 with a 2.31 ERA.
Guerra also collected 21 saves.
■ Pitcher Kenley Jansen —
During the 2010 season, Jansen
went from the high Single-A
California League to Chattanooga
to Los Angeles, with his 22
appearances with the Lookouts
yielding a 4-0 record and a 1.67
ERA. He played in 51 games with
the Dodgers last season, going 21 with a 2.85 ERA and five saves.
■ Pitcher Scott
Elbert — Elbert
is expected to
be among the
25 opening-day
Dodgers, as
he’s the only
left-handed
reliever. He first
reached the
majors in 2008
Scott Elbert
from DoubleA affiliate
Jacksonville, and he started the
’09 season in Chattanooga, going
2-3 with a 3.90 ERA in 12 games
(11 starts). In 47 games with the
Dodgers last year, Elbert went 0-1
with a 2.43 ERA.
■ Pitcher Nathan Eovaldi
— Eovaldi began last season in
Chattanooga’s rotation and went
6-5 with a 2.62 ERA in 20 games
(19 starts) before being called up
to Los Angeles. He went 1-2 with
a 3.63 ERA in 10 appearances
(six starts) with the Dodgers and
began this week still competing for
a spot in the rotation.
■ Pitcher Josh Lindblom —
Lindblom played for the Lookouts
Parcells OK to Goodell
At New York, while NFL
commissioner Roger Goodell
is deciding on punishment
for players and listening to
appeals in the Saints’ bounty
case, he won’t stand in the
way if New Orleans asks
Bill Parcells to take over as
interim coach.
“That’s their decision.
They need to make those
decisions and we’ll move forward,” Goodell said Monday.
“Bill’s a great coach, and I’m
sure will add a lot of personality and intrigue. And he’s
as competitive as they get, so
I’m sure he’ll do a good job.”
Leaf GPS targeted
At Helena, Mont., Montana police said Monday they
were seeking a warrant for
the GPS in Ryan Leaf’s pickup truck to get information
that will link the ex-quarterback to two break-ins and
possibly lead them to stolen
prescription painkillers.
He is accused of breaking
into homes Thursday and
Sunday and stealing prescription medication.
Central Montana Drug
Task Force Commander Chris
Hickman said Leaf broke into
a home outside Great Falls
on Sunday, just two days
after he posted $76,000 bail
for his first arrest.
Hickman said the owners
returned home Sunday afternoon and found Leaf inside.
Leaf told them he had the
wrong house, and the owners
later discovered three bottles
of pills were missing.
Leshoure caught
At St. Joseph, Mich., police
say Detroit Lions running
back Mikel Leshoure was
caught chewing marijuana
during a recent traffic stop
in southwestern Michigan.
in 2009 and again last season,
when he went 1-3 with a 2.13
ERA and collected 17 saves.
He earned his first big-league
promotion and excelled, going
1-0 with a 2.73 ERA. Lindblom
is competing for one of the final
bullpen spots.
Infielder Justin Sellers — Sellers
spent the 2009 season in
Chattanooga, hitting .280 in 116
games. He played most of the
2010-11 seasons in Triple-A
Albuquerque before receiving his
first big-league call-up last year,
hitting .203 in 36 games. Sellers
is fighting for the final reserve
infielder spot.
ON THE MEND
■ Pitcher Rubby De La Rosa
— De La Rosa began last season
in Chattanooga and went 2-2
with a 2.93 ERA in eight starts
before being promoted to Los
Angeles. He went 4-5 with a 3.71
ERA in 13 games (10 starts) with
the Dodgers before undergoing
Tommy John surgery in August.
De La Rosa is expected to miss
most, if not all, of the 2012
season.

Jerry Sands has moved up.
HAVING TO WAIT
■ Outfielder Jerry Sands —
Sands led the 2010 Lookouts with
17 home runs despite playing just
68 games following his promotion
from Single-A, and he was the
organization’s minor league player
of the year. He made his debut
with the Dodgers last season and
hit .253 in 61 games, including
.342 in September. Sands hit just
.158 this spring, however, and will
start out in Albuquerque.

Day tied for second. They
were runners-up, and
Australia finished second
again.
Day and Scott will be
among the 92 participants
when the 2012 Masters
begins Thursday.
“I can’t remember any
of my rounds last year,”
Day said in his pre-tournament news conference. “It’s hard to explain.
Maybe I have short-term
memory loss.
“After I finished the
72nd hole, I was really just,
‘Wow, I played great.’”
No one from Australia
has won the Masters.
“I think it makes the
story a little juicier,” Scott
said. “It’s one of those
sporting hurdles that no
Australian has gotten over.
Thanks to Greg Norman
and the years he played
and icon he is in Australia,
he took golf beyond the
golfers and made it recognized by the whole Australian public.”

is considered among the
favorites this time. Tiger
Woods, Mickelson and
McIlroy have that distinction.
That sits just fine with
Scott, who has finished

PORTLAND, Ore. —
Back in 1998, the University
of Oregon and Nike teamed
to tinker with the Ducks’ traditional uniforms. Out went
emerald green and lemon
yellow; in came spruce, mallard and a little something
called “lightning.”
That was just the start.
The gaudy uniform craze that
began with Nike co-founder
Phil Knight’s alma mater has
gripped schools from Maryland to Boise State, hitting
Notre Dame and Michigan
along the way.
Is the NFL next?
Nike is taking over the
pros from Reebok with a
gala uniform unveiling set for
today in New York City. The
design details are a closely
guarded secret at the Beaverton-based shoe and apparel
maker, but some images
— there’s no way to know if
they’re real or fake — have
circulated on the Internet.
The biggest changes will
likely be in the performance
aspect of the uniforms, like
newer lightweight fabrics
and a sleek silhouette, but a
few teams could get the Cinderella treatment.

THEATRE CENTRE’S YOUTH DIRECTOR
SEEKS TO CHALLENGE KIDS, HERSELF
One of the protesters
camped out on the courthouse lawn called me
and asked what I thought
of their protest. I asked,
“What is it you are protesting?”
and after
fumbling a
little with
his answer,
he finally
said, “I am
not sure.”
I said,
Dalton
“The most
Roberts
important
Commentary
thing in
a protest movement is
to have a clear message
about what you are protesting. You can’t rally
the troops without it and,
more importantly, you
cannot sway public opinion.”
The first point (rallying the troops) is essential
to success. The reason
the civil-rights movement
prevailed was that there
was a hard-core group
of supporters who were
convinced they were
right, and many of them
were willing to die for it.
Indeed, many did.

S
ome might say Maria ChattinCarter has come full circle. After
graduating from East Ridge High
School in 1994, she attended
Stephens College in Columbia,
Mo., receiving of bachelor of fine
arts degree in theater. Fifteen years after
returning to her hometown, Chattin-Carter
is in her ninth season as the director of the
Chattanooga Theatre Centre Youth Theatre,
where she took the stage herself as a child.
Currently, Chattin-Carter is in the midst
of producing “Stellaluna,” based on the book
by Janell Cannon, about a fruit bat who lives
among birds. The play incorporates music,
sign language, dance and puppets.
“We’ve never done anything like this
before,” she said.
“Stellaluna” is Chattin-Carter’s 36th play
as director of the Youth Theatre. She said
she is seeking unique works that will be
challenging both to herself and to the children. “That’s why we’re doing ‘Stellaluna,’
because it’s a little bit different,” she said.
“[We want] something to keep our audience
jazzed and coming to see things.”
How did you get
involved with theater?
I was extremely shy
as a child. My parents saw this thing
on television for modeling
classes when I was about
14, so they put me in modeling classes to build up
my self-esteem. I was terrified. I sat in the car and
cried. I didn’t want to go
in by myself. But I went
in, and they also had acting classes. I realized, I’m
only 5-foot-1; there’s no
way I’m ever going to be
a model. I started working
with the acting class, and
I enjoyed it.

Q
What was your
first role?
I remember being in

I had a line, “nine

was all I said. That was
my very first time being
onstage. Then I played
Rapunzel at the Theatre Centre when I was
a senior in high school.
That was probably the
biggest thing I’d done at
that point.
What got you
involved with
children?
It was through the
theater. When I
was in college, I’d
contemplated doublemajoring in theater and
education and decided
not to do education. Looking back on it, that would
have been a good thing to
have, considering what I
do. But when the theater

Practice key to sisters’ success at statewide competition
By Casey Phillips
CLAIM TO FAME
Staff Writer
Like most young musicians, Hannah Claire Davis,
13, and her sister Gracyn, 11,
don’t like practicing on the
piano, but they recognize
that it’s a necessary evil.
“Playing music doesn’t
come easily,” Gracyn said.
“Sometimes I get frustrated
and want to scream and
bang the notes.”
Despite their aversion
to doing so, the Davis sisters said they try to spend
about an hour a day at the
bench of their home piano.
Even if they miss a day
here or there, they said
they are constantly pushed
to excel by their private
instructor, Viktoria Lindsay.
Sisters Hannah Claire
and Gracyn Davis won
first-place trophies in the
Tennessee Federation of
Music Clubs’ statewide
competition for the
concerto and primary/
elementary contemporary
composer categories.
Gracyn and Hannah Claire
began studying under Lindsay three and four years
ago, respectively.
Lindsay said that she
expects more from the sisters than the other 38 students in her studio because
of their innate potential.
“They are above average,” she said. “If I don’t
expect as much of them,
they won’t work as hard.
They have a lot of potential, both of these girls, and
I have a lot of expectation.”
On March 23, the Davis
girls’ dedication paid off
when they walked away
with three first-place
awards at a statewide,
judged event hosted at Carson-Newman College by
the Tennessee Federation
of Music Clubs.
Gracyn won the primary contemporary composer competition, which
required her to perform
three pieces by modern
composers from memory.

Someone from the past
who was extremely important to you might re-enter
your life in the year ahead.
This person had a good
influence on you then and
chances are will continue to
do so.
ARIES (March
21- April 19): If
you take on too
heavy a schedule, all it
would do is cut down on
your proficiency. Putting
too much pressure on
yourself could make you
feel overwhelmed.
TAURUS (April
20- May 20):
Once more, you
could get yourself involved
socially with someone
of whom you’re not too
fond. Try not to dwell too
much on this person’s
shortcomings, or problems
will result.
GEMINI (May
21- June 20): It’s
going to be up
to you to put a stop to an
outside influence that could
undermine the tranquility
of your space. If you don’t
do anything about it, you’ll
have to live with it.

Widow needs comfort, not criticism
Country stars stampede
to studio to help Richie
By Chris Talbott
The Associated Press
NASHVILLE — Kenny
Chesney was so excited about
the idea of working with Lionel Richie that he drunk-dialed
the pop legend to suggest a
song. Darius Rucker tossed
aside a lyric sheet in the studio, saying he’d been preparing for the moment his entire
life. And so many people were
clamoring to get on the project that stars like Keith Urban
and Brad Paisley didn’t even
make the cut — this time.
It’s not surprising that a
musician would consider
working with Richie a dream:
The Grammy and Oscar
winner is considered one of
music’s all-time greats, having sold more than 22 million
albums over a career that has
spanned nearly four decades,
from his time as a member
of The Commodores to his
illustrious solo career. Richie
has also penned classics that
include “Endless Love,” “All
Night Long” and “Say You,
Say Me.”
But the excitement over
his country duets album also
reflects Richie’s deep roots
— and remarkable success
— in the genre. Richie wrote
one of country music’s enduring hits, Kenny Rogers’ “Lady,”
and Conway Twitty’s take on
the Commodores’ “Three
Times a Lady” became a huge
country hit. In addition, Richie
collaborated with Alabama on
“Deep River Woman,” another
song that became a country
classic.
So mix Richie’s rich pop
history with his country music
legacy, and you can see why his
return to his country roots on
the new duets album “Tuskegee,” named after his hometown in Alabama, is creating
such a buzz in Nashville.
“It’s kind of surreal,” said
Jason Aldean, who cut “Say
You, Say Me” on the album. “I
mean, he was one of the biggest stars on the planet when
I was growing up. And to be
in the studio with him and to
have gotten to be friends with
him over the last year, it’s just
crazy.”
Richie was mobbed on
the red carpet at the Country
Music Association Awards last
year, he was feted and joined
The Associated Press
Lionel Richie is reaping what he sowed during his dalliance with country music 30 years ago with the release
of “Tuskegee,” a country duets album named for his
hometown in Alabama.
by Rogers at the South by
Southwest Music Festival last
month in Austin, Texas, and
he received a salute from the
Academy of Country Music
on Sunday’s awards show (he’s
also the subject of its annual
television special, which airs
April 13).
Richie says his multigenre
success can be boiled down to
one thing: storytelling.
“The storytelling is the
same,” he said. “I have always
said the honesty is in the lyrics, the honesty is in what’s
the story about, whether you
put a steel guitar in the middle
of it or whether you leave the
steel guitar out or put a choir
in the background, or guitar
or saxophone solo. It’s still the
same.”
Chesney remembers Richie being on the mixtape that
successfully won the high
school student the heart of a
girl. “Penny Lover” was the
dominant song of the time,
and he was a fan of “My Love.”
Chesney intended to claim the
latter song immediately after
deciding to join the project
following a few bottles of
wine.
“I just decided that I was
going to call Lionel and tell
him I wanted to sing on his
record,” Chesney said. “It was
a pretty spirited voicemail, I
can tell you that, because I
actually sang the verse and
like half of the song of ‘My
Love’ onto his voicemail.”
Richie took up the duets
idea for his first album since
2009’s “Just Go.” When the
California resident arrived in
Nashville, to his surprise he
found they still made music
the way they did when he
first hit town back in the
early 1980s. They played
their instruments live in
the studio, made decisions
on the fly, with no preprogrammed tracks and few
preconceived notions. He
REVIEW
Richie’s classics
freshly done
on new CD
By Michael McCall
The Associated Press
LIONEL RICHIE,
“Tuskegee” (Mercur y
Nashville)
Lionel Richie named his
new album “Tuskegee” for
his Alabama hometown, a
subtle reference to his Southern roots. By remaking his
hits with such country stars
as Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson and Shania Twain, he
makes those ties explicit.
“Tuskegee” may play on a
well-worn concept — a legendary singer pairing with
younger artists on classic
tunes. But, with few exceptions, these recordings come
off as carefully considered,
with fresh arrangements that
highlight the strengths of
the material and the talents
involved.
Richie’s voice sounds as
smooth and rich as ever,
adding new wrinkles to his
phrasing. Of the guests, those
rising to the occasion include
Sugarland’s Jennifer Nettles,
who performs a dramatically
beautiful “Hello”; country
rocker Jason Aldean, who
shows he’s a fine balladeer
on “Say You, Say Me;” and
Kenny Chesney, whose intimate tones work well on the
romantic “My Love.” Only a
couple of songs don’t work:
Jimmy Buffett, for one, turns
“All Night Long” into a steeldrum workout that sounds
A: Only she could say,
of course, why she chose to

— although
she may not
know herself. Sometimes our
motives are
hidden or
Billy Graham unclear even
to ourselves. The Psalmist asked God to “Forgive
my hidden faults” (Psalm
19:12).
From what you say, however, I suspect one reason
could be her regret over
the past. In other words,
perhaps she was trying to
make up for the way they
treated each other when he
was alive. In an obscure kind
of way, she may even have
been trying to apologize for
the failures of the past and
let others know that she
really did love him, in spite
of their problems.
Instead of dwelling on
this, however, I hope you
and other members of her
family will reach out to
her and assure her of your
love and concern. She can’t
change the past, and neither
can you, but you can let her
know you care for her. Some
of the saddest words in the
Bible are these: “People
have heard my groaning, but
there is no one to comfort
me” (Lamentations 1:21).
In addition, ask God to
help you point her to the
comfort and hope we have
in Christ. Because of his
death and resurrection we
can have hope — hope for
this life and hope for the life
to come. When we know
him, the Bible says, “weeping may remain for a night,
but rejoicing comes in the
morning” (Psalm 30:5).

stiff instead of joyous.
All in all, Richie proves
his middle-of-the-road pop
has more in common these
days with contemporary
country than with modern
pop. The album also underscores that country music,
or any genre, benefits from
strong melodies and powerful performances.
Check out this track:
“Deep River Woman,” a song
Richie wrote and recorded
with country group Alabama,

paired with the prettier, and
more complex, harmonies of

Giving houseplants as gifts makes potted plants great value
By Nara Schoenberg
Chicago Tribune
Q: Last week, we went to a funeral for my husband’s cousin, and we were appalled at how elaborate it was and how much his wife must have spent
on it. The whole family knows they didn’t get along,
so why do you think she did this? They weren’t
wealthy or anything. — Mrs. E.B.
felt comfortable and familiar for the first time in years.
And before he realized it, he
was turning the keys over to
each new friend he brought
into the studio, telling them
to remake the song in their
image.
“The most important
thing was, we don’t change
the melody,” the 62-year-old
singer said. “We may change a
little bit of the arrangements,
but we didn’t change where
the crowd comes in. So, yes,
we changed ‘Say You, Say Me’
from this anthemic thing to a
little bit of a ‘Lay Lady Lay’
kind of feel, but the crowd still
knows where to come in. ... I
wanted to put a little thing in
there where each of my guest
artists felt like they weren’t
copping out.”
He let Tim McGraw turn
“Sail On” from a gentle letdown into something much
more final. Willie Nelson
somehow makes “Easy” even
mellower. And with Rascal
Flatts, it was about bringing
even more energy to “Dancing
on the Ceiling.” So he invited
them to play the track, not just
cut the vocal.
“I don’t know if you can
even sum it up,” Rascal Flatts
lead singer Gary LeVox said.
“He’s just a musical icon and
a legend. And to be able to
call him friend now and to
watch him work in the studio,
the whole time you’re watching him work with [producer]
Dann Huff and throwing out
ideas and all this, you can’t
help but picture ‘We Are
The World’ while it’s going
down.”
Richie is so pleased with
the success, he’s planning a
second volume with stars
that missed out the first time
around. And he’s so energized
he’s thinking about recording
new material. In Nashville, it
turns out, Richie found something he thought he’d lost.
“I’m probably as comfortable in my own space and in
my own skin in the music
world as I’ve been in 15 or 20
years,” Richie said, “because
here, they specialize in melody here. Singers, melody, stylists. Not acrobatics.”
AP writer Caitlin R. King
in Nashville contributed to
this report.
Four years ago, Margaret
Roach picked up two nearly identical Paphiopedilum
orchids at her local garden
center.
Roach, an accomplished
garden writer (awaytogarden.com) and a former top
editor at Martha Stewart Living, kept one of the orchids
for herself, repotting, watering, situating and feeding it
according to all the accepted
practices. It bloomed, happily, for about six weeks
and never sported another
flower.
Roach gave the other to
her sister, an occasional gardener, who plopped her plant
near her desk in its original,
too-small container and
gave it minimal care. During
the first year, Roach’s sister
didn’t even bother with plant
food. The orchid rewarded
her with four years of nearly
continuous blooms.
“She’ll call me and say, ‘Oh,
I just got another [flower]
spike on my orchid. How’s
yours doing?’ ” Roach says,
laughing.
Roach, a big fan of the
houseplant-as-gift, points
McClatchy Newspapers
Paphiopedilum petunia, also known as the slipper
orchid, can flower for two to three months.
out that potted plants are a
great value compared with
cut flowers and a source of
lasting and unpredictable
pleasures, both horticultural
and humorous. But she also
cautions that there’s a right
way and a wrong way to give
the gift of (plant) life.
“A houseplant shouldn’t
be an imposition,” she says.
That means no 5-foot-high
palms, please. Just as you
don’t want to be the guest
who shows up at Thanksgiving with a casserole that
requires major oven space,
you don’t want to be the one
who shows up with a plant
that requires elaborate care
and feeding.
“It’s partly what you
choose, and what, as they
say in Olympic diving, the
degree of difficulty is. You
don’t want to give anything
with a high degree of difficulty,” Roach says.
Also critical is how you
present the gift. If your
approach is, “Here’s your
plant and here’s what it takes
to keep it alive,” the recipient
may feel burdened.
Roach prefers a lighter
touch: “I loved this, and it’s
going to last longer than cut
flowers. You can toss it like
you would with cut flowers
or you can give to someone
else.”
If she knows the recipient well enough, she’ll add
that potted plants are a great
value. Cut flowers might cost
$20 and last only three to
five days. A Paphiopedilum
orchid might cost $25 and,
if you buy it when the first
blooms are just opening, it
can flower for two to three
months.
The worst-case scenario
when you give a reasonably
sized, low-maintenance
plant is that it ends up in
the garbage when it stops
blooming. The best case is
that the plant and the human
hit it off.
“That [darn] orchid,”
Roach says of her sister’s
perennially blooming plant.
“I don’t think she expected
it to do well. She was very
anxious at first because she
hadn’t had an orchid before,
and she ended up just having the knack. Apparently,
however she treated it, she
just treated it right.”

‘Scandal’ breathes new life
into familiar template on ABC
By David Wiegand
c. San Francisco Chronicle
SAN FRANCISCO — It’s
a good thing that TV actors
don’t get paid by the word: If
they did, the cast of Shonda
Rhimes’ new thriller/nighttime soap would probably
bust ABC’s budget.
The overcaffeinated show,
premiering Thursday night,
stars Kerry Washington as
the ultimate DC “fixer,” Olivia Pope. Before setting up her
own firm, Pope was communications

on ABC.
Fitzgerald
Grant (Tony
Goldwyn).
Olivia is a fast-talking,
fast-deciding crusader,
who often gets tripped up
when she finds her clients
on the wrong side of her
strict moral code. She still
has ties to the White House
and the president’s closest
adviser, Cyrus Beene (Jeff
Perry). In Thursday’s premiere, we meet Quinn Perkins (Katie Lowes), a new
member of the team, which
also includes sexy, commitment-phobic Stephen Finch
(Henry Ian Cusick), suave
lawyer Harrison Wright
(Columbus Short), overemotional Abby Whelan (Darby
Stanchfield) and nerdy Huck
(Guillermo Diaz).
Rhimes and her creative
staff pick germs of real-life
incidents and grow them
like laboratory experiments
until they take on lives of
their own. Accordingly, in
the first episode, Olivia is
hired by the White House
to handle a former intern

named Amanda Tanner (Lisa
Weil), who says she and the
president had an affair. No
cigars are involved, but you
know where this comes
from. Olivia often tells us
how she makes decisions by
what her gut tells her, which
may have something to do
with why those decisions
may seem right at the start
but sometimes prompt her
to change course.
As the Tanner story line
continues through at least the
first few episodes, the series
also presents new cases for
Olivia’s team. Next week,
grandmotherly DC madam
Sharon Marquette (Mimi
Kennedy) needs Olivia’s
help to keep her list of highpowered clients a secret. All
well and good until the name
of a Supreme Court nominee
shows up on that list. Things
get even more complicated
when the guy says he’s innocent. Is he?
And in the third episode,
a wealthy businesswoman,
played by Jo Beth Williams,
needs Olivia’s help to prove
her spoiled frat-boy son
didn’t rape a young woman.
The resolution of this particular case is completely
incredible, but pay that no
mind.
The situations of each episode aren’t all that inventive,
on the surface, but become
more interesting as they
reveal themselves to either
mirror aspects of Olivia’s
life, or to be in conflict with
her own sense of right and
wrong. The dialogue is
snappy and so fast-paced,
it makes an Aaron Sorkin
script seem like a memorial
entry in the Congressional
Record.
In addition to its pace,
though, the writing is often
clever. There’s a great
moment where Beene is grilling Grant about the alleged
affair and the president is
fine-tuning his response too
much. “Don’t Clinton me
with words,” Beene snaps.
Nice.
There’s a lot of Rhimes’
“Grey’s Anatomy” formula
at work here, and that’s not a
bad thing. To enjoy the show,
though, you really have to
suspend disbelief at many
points, just as you do with
“Grey’s.” There are moments
when the frenetic drive for
cleverness prompts some
rather silly decisions about
plot points.
To wit: The first lady is
worried that Grant isn’t getting enough sleep so she
first allows him to sleep in
and miss a teleconference
on world hunger that was so
important that “Mandela got
out of bed” for it, and then
knowingly invites his actual
former mistress to a White
House state dinner because
she thinks it will help him
sleep.
The only thing about all
of this that’s less believable
is President Grant’s reaction:
He’s a dithering moron. Yes,
we’ve probably elected idi-

ots to the White House in
the past and will do so again,
but it’s really difficult, not to
say unnerving, to think that
the titular “leader of the free
world” is really this indecisive and stupid. But, really,
wouldn’t Beene be pounding
at the door if the president
decided to sleep in and miss
a phone chat with Nelson
Mandela?
“Scandal” actually
makes good use of the team
approach to problem-solving, despite the fact that it’s
one of the most overused
templates in television,
going back to the days of the
original “Mission: Impossible” and continuing with
tiresome regularity right up
to today, with shows like
“Breaking In,” “Leverage,”
“Alcatraz” and many more.
Its appeal derives from
the chance to find gaggles
of secondary characters who
may not only have special
skills, but who can individually appeal to various
segments of the audience.
Despite its overuse, the template can work fine as long
as the characters are interesting and if there’s something else about the show to
hook viewers. In this case,
that would be the cast members themselves, beginning
with Washington, who could
charm us if she were selling
Tupperware.
■ The verdict: three
stars out of five.

Dreamliner
flights
By Ellen Creager
Detroit Free Press
Most planes pressurize to
8,000 feet above sea level.
That can stress the body,
causing headaches and dizziness for some passengers.
If you’ve ever felt queasy or
faint on a long flight, you
know what we’re talking
about.
The new Boeing 787
Dreamliner pressurizes to
a maximum of 6,000 feet,
getting 8 percent more oxygen to the cabin, plus it has
slightly more humidity and a
new gas filtration system to
remove odors and irritants.
The composite material of
the jet allows the pressurization to the lower altitude.
This summer, United will
be the first U.S.-based airline
to get the Dreamliner.

elementary contemporary
composer competition and
the concerto 1-A competition, which featured a duet
with Lindsay.
Hannah Claire has participated in the competition
annually for the last three
years. Two years ago, she
won the concerto and primary composer categories
for the first time. This year
was Gracyn’s second time
competing and the first
time she has won.
Participating in the
TFMC competition required
the girls to secure a superior rating, the highest possible, at a local competition
in February. Even with all
their hard work preparing
for the event, however, their
nerves nearly got the better
of them.
“It’s very quiet. Nobody
says anything,” Hannah
Claire said of her March
performance. “Nobody
claps between songs. The
silence is weird.”
Winning made all the
pressure worth it.
“I like the feeling of
accomplishment after it,”
she continued. “It feels like
a weight is lifted off your
shoulders.”
Lindsay said the Davis
girls stand out from other
young pianists in that their
approach to the instrument
is so fluid. Instead of sitting rigidly at the bench
and playing mechanically,
they flow with the music,
which helps convey more
emotion.
Q
A
What are the advantages of working
with children?
Kids listen. They actually listen to you. I’ve
worked with adult
actors as well as kid actors,
and I think it’s easier to
direct kids because they’re
used to being directed in
their everyday lives. Adults
don’t take direction as well
as children do. Kids are used
to being told what to do and
when to do it. They want to
please you.
Q

Q
A
Do the kids do
behind-the-scenes
work?
Absolutely. I’m the only
adult, so I have kids
who are stage managers. I have a senior in high
school who is training two of
the younger kids to be stage
managers. They work backstage. They work the lights,
the sound. They come in and
help put the sets together.

on that movement was a stirring account of a large number of people who would not

It was that kind of moral
certainty that finally turned
the tide and gained enough
support among the people
and their elected representatives to create positive
change.
In the ’60s, when the movement was in full swing, Russia

America to think we might

It seems like such a waste
of good protest energy to
throw up tents and despoil
the beautiful courthouse lawn
when you are uncertain about
your cause and cannot activate and organize the moral
energy to send a clear message.
It is a symptom of the
times. We are unhappy but
unable to pinpoint what our
real problems are. Gas prices
are killing us. Congress has
been purchased by big contributors and is unresponsive
to anyone but the richest
among us.
The quality of life for the
masses has been sinking for
a long time and will continue
to plummet until we can activate the moral indignation of
the people and channel it into
something more substantial
than tents on courthouse
lawns.
Those kind of “occupy”
protests will do nothing but
lose the support of the people
we must have to make changes for the better.
For starters, get indignant
that your government has
been bought.

What are the challenges of working
with children?
Kids have a tendency
to memorize really
quick, especially the
younger ones. The challenge
is to keep them motivated
and molding them into what
you need them to be. They’re
learning the process as we’re
going through the rehearsal.

“They have a lot of artistry in their playing; they’re
like little artists,” Lindsay said, laughing. “They
express their feelings in
their music.”
Like his daughters, Randy
Davis grew up playing the
piano, though he said he
feels like they have already
surpassed him.
Because of their diligence, they’ve both come
a long way from the toddlers he remembers singing
along to videos of “Barney
& Friends.”
“Music is part of their
souls,” Davis said. “I wish
I could play the piano like
they do, and I’ve often
thought that when I retire,
I’ll take lessons. Maybe they
can teach me.”
