How drug agents brought in

Two McMinn County, Tenn.,
grand jurors in 2010 complained
to an investigator that the jury
foreman and an assistant district
attorney tried to influence their
votes in a politically fraught
case, records show.
The grand jury in July of that
year voted not to indict sheriff

candidate Joe Guy for campaign
finance violations. Guy went on
to win the election and is now
McMinn County sheriff.
Later, two grand jurors told
an investigator they felt improper influence was brought to bear
in the jury room by foreman Joel
Riley and Paul Rush, assistant
district attorney in the 10th Judicial District.
No action was taken, records
show. None of the other 10 grand
jurors who sat on the case was
interviewed, and the investigation was closed.
But both grand jurors told
the Times Free Press they still
believe Riley and Rush tried to
influence their votes.
WHAT’S A GRAND JURY?
A grand juy is a panel of county
residents who listen to a bill of
evidence presented by prosecutors or
law enforcement officers and decide
whether it’s enough to charge someone
with a serious crime requiring a trial.
If the grand jury decides to indict, it
returns what’s called a “true bill.” If not,
it returns a “no-bill.”

Nick Gatlin isn’t much of a science guru and never liked
science classes too much. But that’s something teachers and
staff at Hamilton County’s newest school hope to change.
The county’s science, technology, engineering and math
school welcomed its first 75 students on the first day of
school Monday. Educators say the school will focus on
STEM areas but also will fundamentally shift the way high
school is taught.
“I think what kids are looking for is a new way of doing
school that’s not boring,” STEM Principal Tony Donen
said. “Hopefully by the way we go about attacking science,
there’s a new interest brought about.”
Even the STEM school’s building is evidence of a different way of doing things.
Instead of concrete walls, low, cubiclelike partitions

For the first time in at least
half a decade, test scores at Chattanooga’s Howard School put it in
good standing with the Tennessee
Department of Education.
The department on Monday
released lists of priority and focus
schools, both part of the state’s
new school accountability system,
which replaces Adequate Yearly
Progress, or AYP, standards of
the past.
Priority schools are those that
performed in the bottom 5 percent on state tests, while focus
schools are the 10 percent of
schools across the state with the
largest achievement gaps between
racial, socioeconomic or other
groups of students.
Howard didn’t make either list
— an achievement that didn’t go
unnoticed locally.
“I’m very excited for Howard,”
said Hamilton County Schools
Superintendent Rick Smith. “I
know that administration and that
faculty went about the business
of working really hard with kids.
They have really improved their
performance.”
Howard has been flagged by
the state for its low achievement
levels for more than a decade
under AYP.
Its new standing with the state
means Howard isn’t subject to
state intervention and doesn’t
fall under the jurisdiction of the
state-run Achievement School

The Chattanooga Airport is
now projecting a loss of more
than $1.1 million over the first
two years of operation for its
general aviation center.
The first year’s preliminary
loss of $655,000 was more than
twice the original forecast for
the facility that provides fuel,
hangar space and other services for corporate aircraft,
according to officials.

Airport Authority but managed by Memphis-based Wilson Air.

59-year-old Hixson resident
had stayed at a Vanderbilt

Changes in store for ‘The Voice’
The Associated Press
The Associated Press
Seated from left are Christina Aguilera, CeeLo
Green and Adam Levine; standing are Christina
Milian, Carson Daly, Blake Shelton and Mark
Burnett, at the “The Voice” Season 3 news conference held at Executive Producer Mark Burnett’s
residence in Malibu, Calif.
MALIBU, Calif. — NBC’s
“The Voice” is adding a bit of
thievery to its format.
Executive producer Mark Burnett said that the singing contest
will let coaches “steal” contestants from each other during the
show’s “battle rounds.”
The show also will introduce
a new “knockout round” to slice
the number of contestants on
each coach’s team, Burnett told a
Malibu, Calif., news conference.
He was joined by coaches Christina Aguilera, Cee Lo Green,
Adam Levine and Blake Shelton,
and host Carson Daly.
They were promoting the
series’ third season, beginning
Sept. 10 as “The Voice” adds a
fall run to its original midseason
slot.
Because the coaches have
busy music careers, Burnett said,
substitutes may be needed in the
future. But the original four have
“chairs for life,” he said.

LOS ANGELES — Robert Pattinson has decided to come back
— to the spotlight, that is. The
26-year-old actor has been out of
sight since learning last month
that his girlfriend and “Twilight”
co-star Kristen Stewart had an
affair with a married movie director. A tabloid printed photos of
the illicit dalliance, breaking the
hearts of “Twilight” fans worldwide and prompting Stewart and
the director to issue public apologies to loved ones.
Kenny G files
for divorce after
20-year marriage
The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — Kenny G
is playing the final note on his
marriage after 20 years.
Court records show the musician filed for divorce Thursday
in Los Angeles, citing irreconcilable differences.
The 56-year-old married Balynda Helene Benson-Gorelick in
April 1992, and the former couple
has a 14-year-old son. He is seeking joint custody but does not
want to pay his estranged wife
spousal support.
Benson-Gorelick filed for separation in January, but the case
has not proceeded.
The divorce was first reported Monday by celebrity website
TMZ.
Kenny G won a Grammy
Award for 1993’s “Forever in
Love.”
But Pattinson can’t lie low
forever — he has a film to promote — so was set to appear last
night on “The Daily Show” with
Jon Stewart and Wednesday on
“Good Morning America.” It’s a
gentle, if obligatory, re-entry into
the media leading up to Friday’s
opening of “Cosmopolis,” the
David Cronenberg drama the
heartthrob stars in.
After challenging personal situations, choosing how and where
to make a comeback is often a
carefully calculated move.

First lady teases Olympian over fast food
The Associated Press
LOS ANGELES — Gabby
Douglas admitted indulging in
post-Olympics fast food to the
wrong person: first lady and
healthy eating advocate Michelle
Obama, who teased the gymnastics champion.
“You’re setting me back,
Gabby,” Obama told Douglas
during a taping Monday for
NBC’s “Tonight Show,” according to a network transcript.
“Sorry!” replied the 16-yearold athlete, who confessed to
chowing down on a McDonalds’
breakfast sandwich after winning two gold medals at the justended London Olympics.
Douglas became the third
straight U.S. athlete and first
African-American to win the
all-around title. She and her
teammates gave the U.S. its first
Olympic title in women’s gymnastics since 1996.
“Tonight” host Jay Leno asked
Douglas whether, after a lifetime
of training, the dream of winning matched or differed from

the reality.
“I think it’s very different, and
when I mean ‘different’ it’s in a
better way,” Douglas replied. “I
mean, I never thought I would
be doing the show with the first
lady, or even you, Jay.”
On another sports-related
topic, Leno put the first lady on
the spot about what he called
“this whole kiss cam thing” at a
recent basketball game.
Last month, she and President
Barack Obama were at a U.S. Olympic men’s basketball team exhibition game in Washington when
the arena’s “Kiss Cam” panned to
them. She appeared to shake her
head “no” to a smooch.
That’s not what happened,
Michelle Obama told Leno.
“I had just walked in and sat
down, and I just saw my face on
the Jumbotron. And I’m still a
little embarrassed. ... I didn’t see
the ‘kiss cam’ part,” she said.
After the couple was booed,
daughter Malia set them straight.
“I’ve arranged for you to get
another chance on the kiss cam,”
she told her parents, according
to the first lady. The president
delivered, giving the first lady a
big kiss on the lips and adding a
peck on the forehead for good
measure.

Scammers
target
veterans’
pensions
Cox Newspapers
WASHINGTON — They
target retirement communities,
fete veterans with free lunch at
Red Lobster and make harassing phone calls — all to get
their hands on veterans’ pension benefits.
The scammers have been so
crafty and pervasive that members of Congress are making
a bipartisan push to change
the pension eligibility requirements to discourage people
from victimizing veterans.
U.S. Rep. Tom Rooney’s
bill would create a three-year
“look-back period,” meaning
suspicious transfers of money
— such as payments to potential cheats — would be grounds
for denying a claim. Without a
look-back period for examining
asset transfers, it’s easier for
veterans to qualify — but harder for them to avoid scams.
“As a veteran myself, I
am outraged by the actions
of those who would prey on
America’s elderly and disabled
veterans,” Rooney, R-Fla., said.
“These financial predators are
scamming their victims out of
the resources they need, while
undermining the VA pension
program for the veterans who
rely on it. By creating a threeyear look-back period, we
can strengthen the pension
program and put an end to
this fraud against our nation’s
heroes.”
Rooney, who served in the
Army JAG Corps and was
a professor at the U.S. Military Academy at West Point,
learned about the problem
from veterans in his district,
which includes parts of Wellington, Palm Beach Gardens
and Jupiter. Some predators
have urged elderly veterans
to sell their homes to pay for
promised financial services.
Rooney teamed with the
American Legion, which had
launched an effort to compile
information on the growing
scams.
Among the types of veteran
pensions, the Aid and Assistance Program may be the
most generous, with benefits
up to $2,019 per month for a
married veteran. For wartime
veterans, it helps pay for health
care costs, such as prescriptions, a health aide or assisted
living care. Because there is
more money available through
that program, scammers tend
to exploit veterans who are
eligible for it.
Among the most egregious
scammers are consultants who
get veterans to sign contracts
guaranteeing them the first
benefit check. What veterans
don’t know is that instead of
a check of about $2,000, the
VA issues a first check of as
much as $24,000 because of
the time it takes to process a
claim — which averages about
a year.
100 new words make mainstream dictionary
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — It’s about
freakin’ time.
The term “F-bomb” surfaced in newspapers more
than 20 years ago but will
land Tuesday for the first
time in the mainstream Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate
Dictionary, along with sexting, flexitarian, obesogenic,
energy drink and life coach.
In all, the company picks
about 100 additions for the
114-year-old dictionary’s
annual update, gathering
evidence of usage over several years in everything from
media to the labels of beer
bottles and boxes of frozen
food.
So who’s responsible
for lobbing F-bomb far and
wide? Kory Stamper, an
associate editor for Merriam-Webster, said she and
her fellow word spies at the
Massachusetts company
traced it back to 1988, in a
Newsday story that had the
now-dead Mets catcher Gary
Carter talking about how he
had given them up, along

“Sexting,” “man cave” and “aha moment” are among about a hundred new additions
in the 11th edition of Merriam-Webster’s Collegiate Dictionary.
with other profanities.
But the word didn’t really
take off until the late ’90s,
after Bobby Knight went
heavy on the F-bombs during a locker room tirade.
“We saw another huge
spike after Dick Cheney
dropped an F-bomb in the
Senate in 2004,” and again
in 2010 when Vice President
Joe Biden did the same thing
in the same place, Stamper
said.
“It’s a word that is very
visually evocative. It’s not
just the F-word. It’s F-bomb.
You know that it’s going to
cause a lot of consternation
and possible damage,” she
said.
Many online dictionary
and reference sites already
list F-bomb and other entries
Merriam-Webster is only now
putting into print. A competitor, Oxford University Press,
has F-bomb under consideration for a future update of
its New Oxford American
Dictionary but beat MerriamWebster to print on a couple
of other newcomers: mashup, added to the Oxford book
in 2005, and cloud computing, included in 2010.
No worries, Stamper said.

com, and various apps:
The Oprah-inspired “aha
moment,” the Stephen Kingpopularized earworm, as in
that truly torturous tune you
can’t get out of your head,
and man cave, brain cramp
and bucket list.
King, in a 2009 column for
Entertainment Weekly headlined “The Trouble With Earworms,” wrote of waking up
in the middle of the night
for a glass of water when he
found himself singing a snippet of a lyric.
“My friend the Longhair
says that’s what you call
songs that burrow into your
head and commence chewing your brains. The dreaded earworm can turn even
a great song into something
you’d run from, screaming at
the top of your lungs. If only
you could,” he wrote.
The first reference found
by Merriam-Webster for “aha
moment” dates to 1939 in a
book of psychology. Its use
was sporadic until the ’90s,
when Oprah Winfrey began
using it on her no-longer-onthe-air TV show.
“In fact, aha moment is so
closely associated with Oprah
that in 2009, she and Mutual
of Omaha got involved in a
legal imbroglio over Mutual
of Omaha’s use of the phrase,
with Oprah claiming that aha
moment was her catchphrase
and she had the rights to it,”
Stamper said.
The case was settled out
of court in 2009.

Graham responding well to treatment for bronchitis
Los Angeles Times
DURHAM, N.C. — Evangelist Billy Graham is resting
comfortably in stable condition
while being treated for bronchitis at a hospital in Asheville,
N.C., his evangelistic association said Monday.
Graham, 93, was admitted to
Mission Hospital early Sunday
for treatment of a lung infection. He has been responding
well to treatment, according to
pulmonologist David Pucci.
Graham was feeling well
enough to watch the London
Olympics’ closing ceremony
from his hospital bed, said his
spokesman, A. Larry Ross.
“The ceremony brought
back fond memories of various crusades Mr. Graham held
in the UK and in Rio de Janeiro, the host city for the next
Summer Olympics, over seven
decades of public ministry,”
Ross said in a statement.
Earlier Sunday, Graham
watched on television as his
grandson, Will Graham, conducted services at a church
in Spartanburg, S.C. He had
lunch with his daughter, Gigi,
and a grandchild Sunday afternoon, according to the Billy
Graham Evangelistic Association in Charlotte, N.C.
No discharge date has been
set, the association said on its
website, adding: “But physicians are hopeful Mr. Graham
will continue his rapid rate of
recovery and will be able to
return home soon.”
Graham was hospitalized
last November for treatment

University’s
affirmative
action policy
called legal
District attorney now
under fire was judge in
overturned murder trial
By Todd South
The Associated Press
Staff Writer
WASHINGTON — The
Obama administration on
Monday threw its support
behind the University of
Texas’ use of race as a standard in its admissions policies,
asking the Supreme Court not
to interfere with the consideration of racial preferences in
college admissions.
The Justice Department, in
a court brief co-signed by several other government agencies, told the high court that
a diverse college population
was in the university’s — and
the government’s — best interests. “The armed services and
numerous federal agencies
have concluded that well-qualified and diverse graduates are
crucial to the fulfillment of
their missions,” Solicitor General Donald B. Verrilli said.
The court brief was
cosigned by lawyers from the
departments of Defense, Education, Commerce, Labor and
Health and Human Services.
The Supreme Court’s
ruling on the University of
Texas’ admission program
will be its first ruling on
affirmative action in higher
education since 2003. Arguments will be Oct. 10.
Abigail Fisher, a white student who was not admitted
to the school in 2008, filed a
lawsuit challenged the policy
as violation of her civil and
constitutional rights.
Texas admits most of its
students because they rank
among the top 10 percent
in their high school classes.
Fisher’s grades did not put
her in that category. For other
students, Texas officials say
that race is considered among
many factors, including academic record, personal essays,
leadership potential, extracurricular activities, and honors
and awards. The school says
race is not used to set quotas,
which the high court has previously rejected.
“Race is not considered on
its own, and it is never determinative of an applicant’s
admission by itself,” Verrilli
said. “Rather, race is one of a
number of contextual factors
that provide a more complete
understanding of the applicant’s record and experiences.
That is a far cry from impermissible racial balancing.”
The Texas policy has
been upheld by federal
appeals courts, which said it
was allowed under the high
court’s decision in Grutter vs.
Bollinger in 2003 that upheld
racial considerations in university admissions at the
University of Michigan Law
School. But Fisher appealed
to the current Supreme
Court, which is considered
to be more conservative than
the one that ruled in 2003 and
more likely to jettison that
decision or at least limit when
colleges may take account of
race in admissions.
Before adopting race as
part of its admission policy,
Texas’ student body was 21
percent African-American
and Hispanic. By 2007, the
year before Fisher filed her
lawsuit, African-Americans
and Hispanics accounted for
more than a quarter of the
entering freshman class.
A man whose charges of
murder and incest in the 1992
death of his daughter were
dismissed has filed a $20 million federal lawsuit against
McMinn County.
Current head prosecutor
for the 10th Judicial District,
Steve Bebb, served as judge
in the trial of Gussie Vann.
Bebb has come under fire
recently in a lengthy Times
Free Press investigation of
allegations of professional
and financial improprieties
in his office during his tenure as district attorney for
Bradley, McMinn, Monroe
and Polk counties.
McMinn County Mayor
John Gentry said Monday
that he had not seen the lawsuit and deferred any comment to county attorneys.
The lawsuit, filed Monday
by local attorney Robin Flores,
claims that McMinn criminal
investigators Jerry Lynn Tate
and Gary Cullins held Vann
for 48 hours without probable cause shortly after his
arrest following the July 31,
1992, death of his 8-year-old
daughter, Necia Vann.
“He’s a poor man, doesn’t
have much education,” Flores
said. “According to him, they
just ran roughshod over
him.”
Police continued to hold
Vann for 10 months without allowing him to see an
attorney, according to court
documents.
Flores claims in the complaint that Cullins and Tate,
who have since died, enlisted

Toolsie to perform an autop-

CHICAGO — U.S. Rep.
Jesse Jackson Jr., a Chicago
Democrat who took a hushed
medical leave two months
ago, is being treated for bipolar disorder, the Mayo Clinic
announced Monday.
The Rochester, Minn.based clinic specified his
condition as Bipolar II,
which is defined as periodic
episodes of depression and
hypomania. Hypomania is a
less serious form of mania.
“Congressman Jackson
is responding well to the
treatment and regaining his
strength,” the clinic said in a
statement.
Bipolar II is a treatable
condition that affects parts
of the brain controlling emotion, thought and drive and is
likely caused by a “complex
set of genetic and environmental factors,” the clinic
said.

prices, he said.
The center should see a
profit within five years, the
CEO said.
“As with any start-up business, it will be a few years
before the operation turns a
profit,” Hart said. “But it is
important to remember that
this operation was primarily developed in response to
customer demand.”
But the head of the other
fixed-base operator at the airport, Tac Air, said the projected loss this year of $450,000
is likely understated.
“I’m surprised they’re
projecting that small a loss,”
said Pam McAllister, general
manager in Chattanooga for
the private company, based
in Texarkana, Texas. “I don’t
see anything changing that
the losses would be less than
now.”
She also questioned the
need for another hangar at
the Wilson Air Center, which
the airport has proposed
building in the next year.
McAllister said Tac Air’s
hangar space is only 62 percent full.
“They say everything is
based on growth,” she said.
“Where’s the growth coming
from?”
Airport officials said the
second hangar is needed
because the first is already
full. Earlier this year, airport
officials agreed to spend
$424,000 for planning related
to potential construction of
In the coming days students will decide on a school
name, motto and mascot, as
well as help develop school
rules.
The STEM program will
use a made-from-scratch
curriculum that emphasizes
hands-on and project-based
learning. Donen said teachers will flip the way instruction is carried out. Instead of
spending most of the class
time lecturing, teachers will
assign instructional reading and video materials as
homework so students will
come to class ready to apply
concepts.
Students entered their
name into the STEM lottery
drawing for varying reasons
— some were intrigued by
the new program, while others just didn’t want to go to
their zoned high school. The
school is projected to hold
300 students when it reaches
capacity in three years.
Daejanae Williams said
she didn’t want to attend Centhe Chattanooga Girls Leadership Academy, a public
charter school.
CGLA Director Elaine
Swafford, a former Howard
principal and Chattanooga
State Community College
administrator, just took over
the charter school this year.
She said she wasn’t surprised
by the school’s placement, and
her goal this year is to increase
classroom rigor and heighten
expectations for students.
“Even though it wasn’t a
surprise to me, I do believe
that all children can learn at
high levels,” she said. “Our
job is to figure out how to
motivate students to learn.”
The new accountability
system also includes a grouping of reward schools — 5
percent of the state’s highest-performing schools and
another 5 percent of schools
with the biggest gains.
The state has not yet

the second hangar. A $5 million state grant already is in
hand, with the airport having
to chip in about $555,555.
Hart said the second hangar would meet demand and
bring in added revenue.But
McAllister said all the airport
has done is take business
away from Tac Air, which
leases space at Lovell Field,
to fill the first hangar.
“All they’ve done to fill
the hangar is come after my
customers,” she said.
She has said the airport is
trying to drive out Tac Air,
which has operated in Chattanooga for about a decade,
and is using public funds in
large measure to do it.
In mid-2010, airport officials unveiled plans to build
up to $10 million in facilities for corporate tenants
and personal aircraft on the
west side of the main runway,
opposite the commercial
airline passenger terminal.
State government is slated
to pay for about 90 percent
of the cost of the facilities

remainder.

But she said the opportunity
is what drew her to the new
school. She was surprised by
the school’s walls and layout
but said good teachers eased
her first-day worries.
“The teachers seem like
they are really into their jobs,
and they seem like teachers
who are going to help you

Teachers and staff only
got into the newly renovated building Thursday,
making the last few days a
mad rush to get organized.
There are still kinks to

as buses and lunch service

to court documents.
Flores said both Bebb and

likely would be immune from

He was sentenced to death

The prison term has

said.
On Sept. 22, 2011, charges
of felony murder and incest
were dismissed against Vann,

Fired officers seek justice
Staff Writer
A seven-month Times Free Press
investigation showed police officers
going unpunished in the 10th Judicial
District for conduct that would have
landed civilians in jail.
At the same time, three current
or former law officers claim in court
documents that District Attorney General Steve Bebb of the 10th Judicial
District helped get them fired for what
all claim are trumped-up reasons.
Former 10th District Drug Task
Force agent Sammie McNelley was
fired by drug task force Director
Mike Hall in December 2009. He
filed suit, and in March a Bradley
County chancellor ruled that the firing violated his due process rights
and ordered a new hearing.
Separate lawsuits by former
Cleveland, Tenn., police detectives
Duff Brumley and Suzanne Jackson
are pending.
Brumley and Jackson both assert in
their lawsuits that Bebb wrote letters
to Police Chief Wes Snyder, saying
he had lost confidence in them and
would no longer allow them to testify
in 10th District criminal cases.
■■■
In Brumley’s case, Bebb had publicly blamed the veteran detective for
a mistrial against one defendant in
the Valentine’s Day triple slayings
in Cleveland.
Brumley’s lawsuit in Bradley
County Circuit Court asserts that
Bebb’s letter was retaliation for the
detective having investigated druguse allegations against Hall. The
city and police department deny
the allegations.
Brumley’s lawsuit alleges Snyder
used the letter as the basis for terminating Brumley, who had crossed
swords repeatedly with his chief.
Bebb wrote a very similar letter in Jackson’s case, according to
her lawsuit, filed in January in U.S.
District Court.
That July, Bebb had written to Snyder that he would no longer prosecute
cases Jackson worked on because of
allegations that she mishandled evidence, the lawsuit states.
Jackson, who had 19 years on the
Cleveland police force, was fired in

“I can’t tell you word for
word or try to quote anyone, but I can tell you they
were swayed to vote it out to
where it wouldn’t be a true
bill,” one of the grand jurors
said in a June interview.
Both grand jurors asked
not to be named because
they have sworn an oath of
secrecy about their service.
A judge released them from
the oath to speak to a state
investigator about the allegations.
Guy called the issue
“politically motivated.”
“If they’re going to give
it to another DA to present,
they’re still making sure it
gets presented. I can’t imagine why they would fight
against themselves,” Guy told
the Times Free Press.
Rush’s attorney, Dan Ripper, said in an emailed statement there was “no basis to
believe that Paul did anything
wrong.”
Riley did not return a call
seeking comment.
COUSINS
ON THE BALLOT
■■■
When Bebb made Hall the task
force director in 2006, Hall promoted
McNelley to sergeant. In 2008, McNelley became the task force’s liaison to
the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration, working out
of the DEA’s Chattanooga office.
But there was friction between Hall and
McNelley. In November 2009, Hall’s top
aide, Lt. Don Williams, wrote a memo
blaming McNelley for
stirring up trouble in Mike
the task force.
Hall
Williams wrote
that it was “common knowledge”
that McNelley thought “he should
be the Director or someone with
more experience” and that McNelley was “resentful” of Hall’s topranking officers.
The memo blamed McNelley
for “a division between employees
loyal to Director Hall and friends of
Sammie” that led to low morale and
supervision problems.
Williams also claimed that
McNelley was misusing his drug task
force cellphone by making personal
calls and listing the number on ads
and billboard signs while trying to
sell some property.
On Dec. 4, 2009, Hall called
McNelley to the drug task force
headquarters in Charleston, Tenn.,
and, with Williams and Bebb present, fired him.
McNelley appealed to the drug
task force board, which upheld
the firing, and then filed suit in
McMinn County against the state
alleged that a woman who
worked for Gentry and Joe
Guy told family members
that Guy had given her and
her husband cash and asked
them to write him checks as
campaign contributions.
The investigation was
straightforward: Nichols’
investigator, Ross Haynes,
contacted the couple, Dan
and Joy Early. According to
the Earlys’ statements, Guy
told them he had a number
of cash contributions in $5,
$10 and $20 amounts, totaling
$2,000. He asked the couple
to put it in their bank account
and write him two $1,000
checks, which they did.
Both told Haynes they
didn’t think they were doing
anything wrong, and Joy
Early said Guy told her he
had checked with a lawyer
to make sure.
Guy’s statement was
slightly different. He told
Haynes that Joy Early had
come to him with the small
contributions. He said he
believed they were from deputies and others who didn’t
want Frisbie to know they
were giving to Guy.
IN THE JURY ROOM
The grand jurors said that
on July 20, 2010, they already
had heard several cases that
day with Riley as foreman
and Rush as prosecutor.
Then Riley told the group
a special prosecutor was coming because the 10th District
had recused itself. He said
he couldn’t serve as foreman
because he knew the person
that the case was about, so
he named one of the jurors
to act as foreman.
One juror told Haynes
that Riley and Rush “let us
in on the fact that there was
an investigation, allegations
brought up against a sheriff’s
candidate and that they didn’t
know what or if anything we
were supposed to know about
the case before you and Mr.
Nichols presented it.
“Then they did say that
they thought that it was
really nothing to it. Mr.
Riley did tell the jury that
he had known Joe for a long
time, that Joe was a straightup man, that he had never
known him to do anything
wrong or anything illegal,
that he had raised a good
family, came from a good
family, that he had worked
for the county for many years
and he knew him as a friend
and that he felt like … there
was nothing to this. It was
more of a campaign attack. It
was more of a political attack
brought on against Joe.
“So to me it was more of
them saying I want this nobilled. Because they have
told us on occasions which
ones to no-bill.”
When the investigator
asked if Rush made any comment, the juror said, “Yes,
he told me it was a political
play.”
In an interview with the
Times Free Press, the juror
said Rush had said something
like, “Look at the politics.
Look at the timeframe here.
This is something that has
just been pushed through;
if there was anything to
it, something would have
already been done.”
The juror tried to start a
debate but got nowhere.
“The evidence was there.
The facts were there. They
had already been told to nobill this,” the juror said.
The other juror told a
similar story.
“We were prepped beforehand that something was
coming up on a case and a
person was coming out of
Knox County to present it.
We knew going in who it
was,” the other juror told the
Times Free Press. “Paul Rush
and Mr. Riley both spoke to
us” before DA Nichols came
in.
“I felt like they were trying to guide our feelings.”

and the 10th drug task force challenging the termination process.
McNelley claimed Williams had
given him the OK to use the phone
and that others had also misused
drug task force cellphones and not
been fired.
He also claimed denial of due process: That the appeals board members wrongly were told he could be
fired without cause; that he wasn’t
adequately advised of charges or
given time to prepare; that the drug
task force failed to turn over documents he needed for his defense, and
that Hall, the chief witness against
him, was not sworn in and walked
out of the hearing at the start of crossexamination by McNelley’s attorney.
As part of McNelley’s lawsuit,
Bebb gave a sworn deposition
where court records
indicate he spoke
untruthfully under
oath.
During the deposition McNelley’s
lawyer, Chattanooga
attorney Bryan Hoss,
asked Bebb about his
knowledge of the firing.
Sammie
Bebb said more
McNelley
than once that Hall
had told him McNelley was causing
problems in the task force, but that
he didn’t tell Hall how to run the
task force.
Then came this exchange:
Hoss: “And as I understand your
testimony today about this dissension,
that McNelley caused this dissension
within the task force, it sounds like you
didn’t have any personal knowledge of
it, but you just — is it fair to say you
just took Mike Hall’s word that he was
causing dissension? Is that fair?”
Bebb agreed, but said Williams
also had mentioned McNelley causing dissension.
However, unbeknownst to Bebb
or Hall, McNelley had brought an
audio recorder to the meeting. On
the recording, Bebb says explicitly that other people had told him
McNelley was the problem.
In the tape transcript, which was
evidence in McNelley’s lawsuit, Hall
told McNelley he had asked Bebb
for advice.

said there’s no evidence his
client did anything wrong.
“He recused himself from
a case that was not his to
prosecute, he had nothing
to do with the appointment
of substitute or replacement
grand jurors, and according
to the statements you have,
he never was involved in the
presentation of the case or
in the decision of the matter. ... (He) could hardly be
said to have influenced the
decision.”
Something else was odd
about that case, both jurors
said.
There were 16 appointed
panel members. It takes 12 to
hold a vote and 10 to return
an indictment. There were
several absences on July 20
and, when Riley recused
himself, the panel was two
short, they said.
The McMinn County
Circuit Court clerk’s official
tally for the day counted 12
jurors, including Riley.
The foreman called two
substitute jurors from the
county’s alternate panel. One
arrived late and missed part
of the DA’s presentation on
the charges of tampering with
government records and making a false entry on an election
document, the jurors said.

were among the eight who
voted not to indict, the jurors
said.
The investigative file also
noted that Joe Guy posted
the news shortly afterward
on his Facebook page. The
Daily Post-Athenian carried
a story in its July 23-25 editions quoting him saying the
case had been no-billed.
That was more than a
week before the grand jury
was due to make its report
on the indictments handed
up for that session.
Guy told the Times Free
Press he believed one of the
grand jurors who supported
his opponent for sheriff let
the news of the no-bill leak
and filed the complaint.
“It’s my opinion there was
no impropriety. The case
was politically motivated,”
he said.

The Associated Press
ORLANDO, Fla. — The
attorney for the man who
shot and killed Florida teenager Trayvon Martin said
Monday he’ll seek to get the
case dismissed using a traditional self-defense argument and not the state’s
“stand your ground” statute.
Mark O’Mara, who is
defending George Zimmerman against a seconddegree murder charge in the
fatal February shooting, said
the traditional self-defense
approach is appropriate
because the facts suggest
his client couldn’t retreat
from a beating Martin was
giving him.
Zimmerman’s attorneys
had said last week that they
would use Florida’s “stand
your ground” law, which
allows people to use deadly
force — rather than retreat
— if they believe their lives
are in danger.
“The facts don’t seem
to support a ‘stand your
ground’ defense,” O’Mara
said.
If a judge were to side
with Zimmerman in a pretrial hearing under either
theory, the murder charge
would be dismissed immediately. O’Mara said he would
not have to invoke any part
of the “stand your ground”
statute under the strategy
he plans to use.
“I don’t’ like ‘stand
your ground’ because I’m
not sure it’s a ‘stand your
ground’ case,” O’Mara said.
University of Miami law
professor Tamara Lave said
this change by O’Mara may
be a signal that he thinks
his case for self-defense is
solid even without the special provisions afforded by
“stand your ground.”
“’Stand your ground’
makes it easier to prevail
under self-defense theory
than the law that existed
beforehand,” Lave said. “I
think what he’s saying is
his case is so strong that
he doesn’t need ‘stand your
ground.”’
B e fo re O ’ M a ra c a n
address either approach,
he is filing an appeal this
week of trial Judge Kenneth
Lester’s recent decision to
stay on the case.
O’Mara said it could take
several weeks for the Fifth
District Court of Appeals
to rule.
“It’s their timeline,”
O’Mara said. “They’ll try
to get to it quickly, but it
could take several weeks. I
still think he’s a good judge
and very fair... But there’s
a real question of whether
Judge Lester stepped over
his bounds.”
Lester denied O’Mara’s
m o t i o n a s k i n g fo r t h e
recusal earlier this month.
O’Mara argues that language Lester used in setting
Zimmerman’s $1 million
bond showed bias.

Hall: “So I talked to the general
and, uh, he gave a suggestion, and
his suggestion is to, uh, terminate
you.” He offered McNelley a month’s
pay if he would resign.
Then McNelley appealed to Bebb
for help.
McNelley: “Coach, listen. You
have known me for 18 years ... to
be an honest man of integrity and
morals.”
Bebb: “I have. And I think you’re a
good police officer, but I think you’re
a cause of dissension up here.”
McNelley: “Coach, I’m not.”
Bebb: “Well, let me just tell you.
I haven’t even told Mike (Hall) or
Don (Williams). I had another agent
come to me three months ago and
told me that — that there’s a lot of
problems up here and that Sammie
McNelley is behind them.”
McNelley: “Coach, I’m not. I’m
not.”
Bebb: “And a city police officer
also told me the same thing, too.
... For at least a year I have been
hearing, Sammie McNelley, Sammie
McNelley, Sammie McNelley, a city
officer, drug task force officer.”
The firing cost McNelley his
paycheck and affected his pension,
although he later was hired by the
Bradley County Sheriff’s Office and
placed back in the same position as
DEA liaison.
On March 19, Bradley Chancellor Jerri Bryant ruled in McNelley’s favor. Her three-page order
said the firing violated his right
to due process and ordered that a
new hearing be held.
McNelley said in an interview
that the chancellor’s decision to
overturn the appeal process doesn’t
mean he’ll get his old job back.
As of this week, a hearing hasn’t
been set yet. But he wants a lawful
process when it finally happens, he
said.
“The decision to terminate me
needs to be overturned, and I need
to receive back pay and benefits for
all this time. I want what was wrong
made right,” he said.

The 2010 McMinn sheriff’s
race was interesting because
the Republican and Democratic candidates were kin.
Joe Guy, the Republican
who defeated incumbent
Steve Frisbie in the primary,
was a longtime assistant to
then-County Mayor John
Gentry. He is a well-known
historian who has written
several books on regional
history.
His Democratic challenger was his uncle, David Guy,
a career lawman who took
a leave of absence from the
Tennessee Bureau of Investigation to run for sheriff.
David Guy declined to
comment for this story.
David Guy’s employment
meant the TBI had to recuse
itself from investigating when
a McMinn County resident
called about allegedly false
campaign contributions to
Joe Guy.
District Attorney General
Steve Bebb recused the 10th
District from the case as well,
and it was handed to Knox
County District Attorney
General Randy Nichols. The
Times Free Press obtained
the investigative file.
The initial complaint
September 2011 based on the letter,
according to her lawsuit.
Jackson denies mishandling evidence and claims in the suit that
male officers who had done the
same things were not investigated
or disciplined.
She claims she was the target of
sexual discrimination and harassment
and was fired in retaliation for filing
complaints with the U.S. Equal Employment Opportunity Commission.
The city and police department
deny the allegations.

Assad’s military has significantly stepped up aerial attacks in recent weeks.
Strafing from warplanes and
close-range missile strikes
from helicopter gunships
have pushed back rebels in
key fronts such as Aleppo, the
country’s largest city and the
scene of fierce attacks to dislodge rebel positions.

crackled over the village.
On one crowded market
street, a handful of rebels
with rifles ran toward the site
of the bombings.
“What are you going to do,

a man screamed.
After the jets left, young
men on motorcycles rushed
to the bombing site on the
edge of the village to find
two craters the size of cars
in a dirt field next to a swimming pool.
A man working at the privately owned pool said only
three people were there at
the time and that none was
injured. He didn’t give his
name and tried to chase away
journalists and residents seeking to film the pool.
It is unclear why the area
was targeted. Residents said
there was no rebel base nearby.
In another crack in Assad’s
diplomatic corps, a Syrian
diplomat who worked with
the U.N. rights council in
Geneva said he left his post
to join the opposition. A
spokesman for the council,

Oeystein Maeland said police

TEHRAN, Iran — Iran
Monday raised its earthquake
death toll to 306, a day after
rescuers called off the search
for survivors from the rubble
of their homes in the country’s northwest, state media
reported.
Health Minister Marzieh
Vahid Dastjerdi told a session
of parliament that the number
jumped by about 50 after victims expired in the hospital.
More than 3,000 people were
injured in the twin earthquakes that struck two days
ago, she added in comments
broadcast on state radio.
In one hamlet visited by
AP Television News near the
village of Bajeh Baj, 13 miles
west of one of the epicenters,
furniture peeked out from
under piles of bricks and
collapsed roof timbers while
men sorted through debris,
trying to salvage what little
was left of their households.
Residents say the earthquake killed 35 people living
in the simple dwellings surrounded by mountains. Dried
earth was left split wide open
from the force of the shock,
which cut some houses in
two and left the wall of one
standing only where it was
propped up by a refrigerator.
The death toll included
some 219 women and children, Dastjerdi said, adding
that around 2,000 injured
people had been released
from hospitals soon after the
quake since they had only
minor injuries.
Dastjerdi said her ministry has deployed scores of
ambulances and medics to
the region but still needs helicopters to transfer seriously
injured people quickly.
Authorities say old, heavy
roofs without frames were
largely responsible for the
death toll in the rural areas.
Scores of aftershocks have
coursed through the region
since the 6.4 and 6.3 magnitude quakes hit the area,
home to some 300,000 people
in a 2,300-square-mile borderland near Azerbaijan and
Armenia.
The quakes hit the towns
of Ahar, Haris and Varzaqan
in East Azerbaijan province.

OSLO, Norway — A
year after a far-right militant’s bomb and gun attacks
exposed flaws in Norway’s
terror preparedness, police
are being criticized for failing to improve their ability
to stop a gunman bent on
inflicting mass casualties.
In contrast to the 1999
Columbine High School
massacre in Colorado, which
led to sweeping changes in
police tactics and training
in the U.S., the massacre of
77 people in July last year
hasn’t had a tangible impact
on Norway’s police force,
critics say.
“There are hardly been
any visible changes from July
22 and until today. That is
what our members tell me,”
said Arne Johannessen, who
heads Norway’s union for
police officers. “Now things
have to happen. Now both
the leadership in the police
and the politicians must take
this seriously.”
A government-appointed
commission on Monday presented a long-awaited 500page report outlining flaws
— and some bright spots
— in how police and other
authorities responded to
Norway’s worst peacetime
attacks.
The confessed gunman,
right-wing extremist Anders
Behring Breivik, set off a car
bomb outside the government headquarters in Oslo,
then drove to the Labor youth
division’s annual summer
camp, disguised as a police
officer, and opened fire.
Eight people were killed in
the explosion, while 69 people died in the massacre on
Utoya island, in a lake some
25 miles from the capital.
Breivik’s shooting massacre lasted for more than an
hour before he surrendered
to a police anti-terror unit.
He is awaiting sentencing on
Aug. 24.
Police had already admitted to a series of blunders,
including flaws in communication systems and the
breakdown of an overloaded

WASHINGTON — Pakistan has indicated that it plans
to launch combat operations
against Taliban militants
soon in a tribal area near the
Afghan border that also serves
as a haven for leaders of the
al-Qaida-affiliated Haqqani
network, Defense Secretary
Leon Panetta said Monday.
Panetta said Pakistan’s military chief, Gen. Ashfaq Parvez
Kayani, discussed the planned
operation in recent conversations with the top American
commander in Afghanistan,
Gen. John Allen.
Panetta said he did not
know when the Pakistani
operation would start, but he
said he understands it will
be in the “near future,” and
that the main target will be
the Pakistani Taliban, rather
than the Haqqani network.
Saying he had previously
“lost hope” that Pakistan’s
military would take action in
the North Waziristan tribal
area, Panetta welcomed Kayani’s initiative.
The U.S. long has been
frustrated by Islamabad’s
refusal to target Afghan Taliban militants and their allies
using Pakistani territory to
stage attacks against U.S. and
coalition troops in Afghanistan.

The Associated Press
BEIRUT — Syrian rebels circulated dramatic
video Monday of what they
claimed was the downing of
a warplane and armed men
later holding the captured
pilot who ejected as the
MiG fighter was engulfed by
flames. Syria acknowledged a
pilot bailed out of a disabled
plane but blamed the crash on
a technical malfunction.
The authenticity of the
images or the claims could
not be independently verified. If the rebels did bring
down their first aircraft, that
could signal a significant
jump in their firepower and
give opposition forces their
most high-profile military
captive.
But wider questions remain
even if the rebel reports are
confirmed, including whether
this could be just a one-time
blow against expanding air

Seven commissioners voted in
June to halt the architect selection
process until the schools disclosed
plans for the current East Brainerd
Elementary site. The schools are
pushing to have the school designed,
built and open in the fall of 2014.
Since then, a list of 13 applicants
was narrowed to three finalists, and
Smith and Coppinger chose TWH
Architects.
“It was the consensus of the people that listened to all the interviews
and presentations,” Coppinger said
Monday. He said TWH’s local reputation weighed into the decision.
“They’ve done some outstanding
work in the past,” he said.
With continued growth in East
Hamilton County, Smith said it’s
increasingly urgent to get to work
on the new school. He said today’s
release of school-by-school first-day

Tennessee, Georgia and
Alabama all saw a drop in
their adult obesity rates
last year, but that’s likely
because of a difference in
collecting the data rather
than an actual change in the
number of obese people,
according to data released
Monday.
Mississippi remained in
the top spot with nearly 35
percent of its adults considered obese while Colorado remained lowest at
nearly 21 percent, according to information from the
Centers of Disease Control
and Prevention. States in
the South and Midwest
continued to have the highest rates of obesity — calculated as anyone with a
body mass index of more
than 30.
“Comparisons aside, we
still have this problem of
a lot of obesity and rates
that are far too high,” said
Jeff Levi, executive director
at the nonprofit Trust for
American’s Health.
The data released Monday comes from the 2011
Behavioral Risk Factor Surveillance System, which is
self-reported data collected
by randomly calling people
to ask them about various
behaviors. In the past, those
gathering the information
have only called people on
land lines, but this year the
survey included data from
cellphone users, according
to the CDC.
Levi noted that the 2010
National Health and Nutrition Examination Survey,
which is done at a national
level and includes weights
and measurements of survey participants, shows
obesity rates may be stabilizing slightly at a national
level.
However, a Chattanooga
doctor said the rate of obesity — about one-third of
all Americans — may be
slowing simply because

Harry Mixson
Harry Allen Mixson went
to be with the Lord on Sunday,
Aug. 12, 2012, at 11:44 a.m. at
Memorial Hospital due to complications from heart surgery.
Harry was 87 years old.
He was born in Chattanooga, on March 11, 1925. Harry’s
father was O.O. Mixson and
his mother was Bessie Davis
Mixson. Harry graduated from
Tyner High
School in
1941 at the
age of 16
and then
graduated
from McCallie School in
1942. Harry
then joined
the U.S.
Navy and
served in the Pacific Theater
as a radio operator for a U.S.
Marine squadron on Okinawa.
Upon returning to the USA
after the war Harry earned a
degree in electrical engineering at the University of Tennessee. Harry went to work
out of school with Morristown
Electric Utility. Harry married
Billie Joyce White in June of
1951. Harry came back to Chattanooga and went to work with
Dillard Smith Construction Co.
He became an officer in the
corporation and worked for 38
years building electric power
system projects throughout
the world. He retired in 1991.
Harry always had a keen ability in business and lived a life
of extreme generosity. Harry
provided employment to thousands of people. Harry also was
a very active member of Oakwood Baptist Church located
at Bonny Oaks Drive in Chattanooga. He served the Lord
most notably as the chairman
of the f inance committee.
Harry’s leadership allowed the
church to thrive.
Harry’s hobbies included
fishing trips and beach vacations with the family and each
day of his life included enjoying the work of it all. Harry
was a man who loved to mow
grass and maintain a pristine
and organized environment
wherever he was. ‘Ole Harry
had the fire in his belly and was
tested throughout his 1940s and
’50s by trying to raise two most
rambunctious boys whom God
used to develop and strengthen
his perseverance. Harry was
a risk-taker and was “All In”
on all of his endeavors. Harry
actively traded stocks until the
day he died and elected to have
heart surgery when he knew
there was a risk involved. Most
every time Harry’s risk-taking
was handsomely rewarding
and he appeared lucky because
everything he touched turned
to gold.
Harry is survived by his
wife Joyce; son, David and his
wife, Beth Mixson, along with
their three children, Carter,
Alex and Corena; son, Mike
and Becky Mixson along with

Regents officials: TSU
grade assignments valid
By Lucas L. Johnson II
The Associated Press
NASHVILLE — The
interim president of Tennessee State University said
allegations of grade fixing at
the university have opened
dialogue for better communication between faculty and
administrators.
The Senate Higher Education Subcommittee held a
hearing Monday to address
allegations that university officials changed more
than 100 students’ grades of
“incomplete” for two introductory-level courses into
letter grades without instructors’ permission.
Te n n e ss e e B oa rd of
Regents officials told the
panel there were mistakes
made and that there was a
lack of communication, but
they said an internal audit
found no wrongdoing by
university administrators.
One of the faculty members who made the allegations said she voiced her
concerns outside the school
because she didn’t think
they would be addressed by
university administrators.
Another faculty member
said he was simply “afraid.”
Interim TSU president
Portia Shields told reporters after the hearing that she
holds campus meetings for
faculty and administrators
to voice their concerns, but
apparently she isn’t doing
enough.
“To hear several people
say that they were afraid
to come forward when we
operate in a transparent for-

during a Monday hearing in Nashville about allegations

than 100 students’ grades without instructors’ permission.
mat is very troubling, and we
have to find a way to address
that,” Shields said.
At issue were two pilot
courses that were added to
the TSU curriculum when
the state banned remedial
classes for incoming students. Students in these
courses were supposed
to complete college-level
material, as well as additional coursework designed
to bring the students up to
speed.
Students who completed
the college-level coursework
but didn’t complete the supplemental assignments were
given incompletes.
But in the spring the
school changed the incompletes to letter grades based
on the students’ performances on the college-level
coursework. School officials
have said they received
approval from the state
Board of Regents to change
the grades and instructors
were informed.
Regents’ officials testified at the hearing and
later issued a statement
that the mistake was giving
the “incomplete,” but that
“the university corrected
the mistake without requiring hundreds of students to
individually fill out forms
and deliver them around
campus for signatures.”
“If the university had
strictly followed its process
for ‘incomplete’ removal
in order to correct its own
error, the university would
have placed a burden on the
students to go through that
process to correct the mistake,” according to the audit
report.
Monroe slaying trial under way
By Jim Balloch
Knoxville News Sentinel
MADISONVILLE,
Tenn. — Jurors will begin
hearing testimony today in
the trial of Jessica Kennedy,
who is accused of killing a
Monroe Country election
official.
The jurors have already
heard a sneak preview of the
case from comments the lawyers made during the juryselection process Monday.
Monroe County Election
Commission Chairman Jim
Miller, 60, was shot in the
head three times on July 17,
2010. His body was found
inside the trunk of his burning car off Sands Road early
that evening.
Kennedy, 29, is charged
with felony murder, aggravated robbery, abuse of a corpse
and arson. If convicted of the
murder charge, she faces life
in prison.
“The state will present no
proof that (she) is the only
person involved, (but) she
should be held responsible
for her part in the homicide,”
Assistant 10th District Attorney General Jim Stutts said
during jury selection.
Kennedy has given multiple conflicting accounts of
her role in the crime, includ-
GOP’s Campfield
seeks to boost
Clayton credibility
The Associated Press
NASHVILLE — A n
embattled nominee for the
U.S. Senate is turning to a
Republican state senator to
try to underscore his Democratic credentials.
Mark Clayton, who was
disavowed by the state Democratic Party after winning
the primary because of his
anti-gay stance, held a news
conference in Nashville on
Monday with Republican
state Sen. Stacey Campfield.
Campfield, the sponsor of
a bill seeking to bar teaching
about gay issues, told reporters that he had previously
tried, but failed, to recruit
Clayton to run as a Republican. Campfield said he
wasn’t endorsing Clayton.
Clayton is vice president of Falls Church, Va.based Public Advocate of
the United States, deemed
a hate group by the Southern Poverty Law Center.
Clayton showed reporters

he received from the organization.
ing one in which she said she
pulled the trigger. She later
recanted that statement.
“We are going to try to convince you that (confession)
statement is false,” defense
attorney John Eldridge told
prospective jurors.
Kennedy once accompanied authorities to the
location of the crime for a
re-enactment of one of her
versions — but not the one in
which she fired the shots.
Stutts has said the state
believes that Miller was shot
at that location, outside a yellow house on Creek Road. In
one of Kennedy’s accounts,
she helped load Miller’s body
into the trunk of his car.
But even if Kennedy did
not pull the trigger, under
state law she could be convicted of felony murder if she
knowingly participated in a
crime, such as a robbery, that
resulted in Miller’s death.
A jury of nine women
and five men, including two
who will serve as alternates,
was selected from a panel of
about 75 prospective jurors.
Miller’s personal popularity and the extensive publicity of the crime prompted
close questioning of the prospective jurors about their
knowledge of the case and
whether they have formed
any personal opinions.
After the jurors were
picked, Special Judge Walter Kurtz had each of them
make a personal promise to
him to judge the case only on
evidence and testimony presented in the courtroom.
The jury will not be
sequestered unless it
becomes necessary, he said.
Kennedy, who has a record
of minor drug offenses, has
been in jail since late 2010
on a probation violation. She
was indicted in the Miller
homicide case in early January 2011.
For the trial, she has been
allowed to shed her jailhouse
jumpsuit for a simple reddish
blouse and black slacks. Most
of the time on Monday she
paid close attention to the
proceedings, and participated
in discussions with Eldridge
and his associates over which
prospective jurors should be
picked and which should be
excused.
Several of Miller’s family members, including his
widow, Vickie Miller, also
closely watched the proceedings.

unpopular Rossville fee will
disappear and property taxes
will increase to make up for
the difference, under a 3-2
vote by City Council on
Monday night.
Also, the Rossville Public
Library won’t see its funding
cut this year, City Council
decided by the same margin.
Those were the highlights
of a City Council meeting that packed the Rossville courtroom building
with almost 60 people. The
unusually heavy crowd consisted of library supporters
and — judging by applause
— opponents of the 3.65
property tax millage increase
that council approved on its
first reading.
The millage increase consists of two parts: roughly 1.65
mills will prevent the city
from tapping its reserves, and
a roughly 2-mill increase will
replace a $6.50 per month
administration fee charged
monthly to every residence
with a water meter.
“I’d rather leave the
administration fee alone and
not go up on taxes,” Councilman Rick Buff said to loud
and sustained applause. Buff
and Councilwoman Cindy
Bradshaw voted against raising the millage.
Reasons Mayor Teddy
Harris cited the eliminating
the administration fee included its unpopularity, problems
with billing it and the fact
that “is more of a regressive
tax. The [property] tax is
more of a progressive tax.”
Councilwoman Joyce Wall
noted that the city hasn’t
raised taxes in 12 years.
One thing Wall didn’t like
about the administration fee
is that large apartment complexes with only one water
meter, such as the 110-unit
Rossville Apartments, only
pay $6.50 a month for all
their units — the same as a
single-family residence.
City Council split the
same way on maintaining the
library’s funding, with Buff
and Bradshaw opposed.

CLEVELAND, Tenn. — Steps
are being taken toward a “no kill”
city here, the Cleveland City
Council learned Monday.
Between meetings, the council toured the city animal shelter, which is the Animal Control
Division of the Cleveland Police
Department.
Beth Foster, speaking for the
new “Cleveland for a No Kill
City” group, said the council’s
previous action — giving ownersurrendered pets at least 72 hours
before euthanasia — has saved
over a hundred dogs and cats
the past month. The extra time,
rather than overnight euthanasia,
gives pets a chance to find a permanent home, Foster said.
The group’s goal is that Cleveland will be a no-kill city by
2017.
The council viewed a new city
website that includes photos of
available pets at the animal shelter. The new site includes pet
adoption information, pet regulations and other advice.

Hikers and tourists congregate outside the headquarters of the Appalachian Trail Conservancy in Harpers Ferry,
W.Va., earlier this month. Today marks the 75th anniversary of the trail’s completion.
Appalachian Trail still
evolving after 75 years
H A R P E R S F E R RY,
W.Va. — Like the people
who hike it, the Appalachian
Trail is always moving.
Technically, Tuesday
marks the 75th anniversary of
its completion. But the 2,180mile path stretching across 14
states from Springer Mountain, Ga., to Katahdin, Maine,
is never really finished.
It took 15 years for hundreds of volunteers, state and
federal partners, trail maintenance clubs and young workers with the New Deal-era
Civilian Conservation Corps
to build the original path. In
the decades since, nearly 99
percent has been relocated
or rebuilt, and transferred
from private to public ownership.
That means the trail and
some 250,000 contiguous
acres are better-protected
than ever from development
and suburban sprawl.
It will always be in the
same general area, said Mark
Wenger, executive director of
the Appalachian Trail Conservancy in Harpers Ferry.
But as access to waterways

lot on Aug. 21 were each asked
to answer questions prepared
by the party and audience
members. The crowd of about
100 residents squeezed into
the room and more than half
the audience stood against the
wall.
Black and Sisk were asked
a range of questions from
how they would manage the
sheriff ’s office $8 million
budget to how they would
prevent drug problems in the
community.
Sisk, who has worked at
the Catoosa County Sheriff’s
Office for 22 years and now
holds the chief deputy spot,
criticized Black’s plans to
double the sheriff’s narcotics
unit and build a substation
on the west side of the county. He questioned how Black
could pay for those expensive projects and whether the
substation would take manpower off the streets.
“Officers belong out there
in the car serving you,” Sisk
said.
But Black didn’t answer
and instead ignored the criti-

the trail becomes available
for purchase, it will continue
to shift.
“Will it move a little to
the left, a little to the right?”
he said. “Yes, depending on
the physical attributes of the
area.
“One of the tenets of the
trail is to provide that personal experience of sort of
being one with nature. You
can’t necessarily do that if
you’re walking along a major
highway,” Wenger said. “So
it’s been relocated to give it
some degree of privacy and
that sense of the wonder of
nature.”
The relocations and reconstruction also make the path
itself more sustainable. It was
originally routed straight up
and down many mountains,
exacerbating erosion and
making for a difficult hike.
Today’s trail features more
scenic vistas than the original route, too, including Roan
Mountain, Tenn.; the Mount
Rogers High Country and
Grayson Highlands in Virginia; the Pochuck Creek swamp
in New Jersey and Thundering Falls in Vermont.
cism explaining that he ran a
positive campaign.
“We are going to stay professional because I take a lot
of pride in law enforcement,”
he told the crowd.
Earlier in the debate,
Black argued that rehabilitation for inmates wasn’t the
answer — the platform Sisk
has been debating throughout his campaign.
“I don’t feel like it’s the
sheriff ’s role,” Black said.
“We get paid to go out and
protect you.”
Sisk later shot back that
more community rehabilitation programs was one of the
answers for crime prevention
and that teens needed a role
model and encouragement
from the community.
“It’s not some one else’s
problem. It’s our communities problem,” he said.
Both toted their experience as a selling point —
Black with experience at multiple agencies across North
Georgia, and Sisk working

The idea for the trail was
born in a 1921 article in the
Journal of the American Institute of Architects. Benton
MacKaye proposed an idea
that still resonates today — a
path that would let people
escape the demands and
drudgery of daily life.
As many as 3 million people a year now visit some part
of the trail to reconnect with
nature and slow down.
Wenger calls it “a very
complex trail” with a wide
variety of terrain. Travelers
can make their way through
the dense forests and remote
mountains in the South, to
long, rocky ridges in the MidAtlantic, to rugged and rocky
hiking with the possibility of
wintry weather in New England. Although some sections
meet the accessibility standards of the Americans with
Disabilities Act, there are also
rugged sections that require
skill and experience to navigate.
About 2,000-3,000 people
each summer attempt a “thruhike,” or journey along the
entire length. Only one in four
will succeed. For them, Harpers Ferry is the psychological
halfway point, even though
the actual location is nearby
in southern Pennsylvania.
The trail is part of the
National Park System, managed by the trail conservancy,
National Park Service, U.S.
Forest Service, 31 local clubs
and various state agencies.
The Maine Appalachian Trail
Club in Carrabassett Valley is
planning an anniversary celebration Saturday, while the
Mount Rogers Appalachian
Trail Club in Damascus, Va.,
will sponsor a day hike.
“We need to take stock of
what the people before us
have done,” Wenger said. “If
you think about it, building
a national trail is in the same
caliber as Yosemite and Yellowstone, the early national
parks. It’s something other
countries didn’t do.”
It’s also important to think
about where the trail is headed, he said, and to ensure it
remains available to future
generations.
“It is not going to be done
in my lifetime,” Wenger said,
“and we’d like to think secretly it will never be done. But it
will always be our challenge
to finish it.”
Probe
is making progress.
“It could be that if evidence comes forward, there
could be a warrant or it
could be taken straight to
the Franklin County grand
jury,” Taylor said.
Authorities ask anyone
with information related
to the investigation to call
the Franklin County Sheriff ’s Office at 931-967-2331
or the Tennessee Bureau
of Investigation at 1-800824-3463.

Veterans benefits
focus of seminar
By Yolanda Putman
Staff Writer
Local attorneys are hosting a seminar today help
more veterans and their
spouses understand the benefits available to them.
The attorneys also will
discuss proposed legal
changes that may make veteran benefits harder to get.
“We’re passionate about
setting the record straight,”
said Sally Brewer, an attorney
with a focus on elder law and
Medicaid/veterans benefits.
Brewer and certified elderlaw attorney Dana Perry will
host the seminar. Both work
for the Chambliss, Bahner &
Stophel law firm.
Lawmakers have proposed
changes that will create a
“look-back period” into a veteran’s financial records for
the three years before he or
she files for benefits, Brewer
said. Under the law, veterans
cannot have transferred any
of their assets in that timeframe. If it’s discovered that
they have transferred their
assets for less than fair market value, they could forfeit
their benefits, according to
news reports.
The goal is to stop wealthier veterans who may try to
scam the system, she said.

mer Naval aviation structural
mechanic, said it’s wrong to
make veterans wait to receive
benefits they have earned.
“Some veterans have waited a year to get benefits. A lot
of times they die before they
can receive their benefits,”
she said. “It’s not fair.”
Perry said the attorneys
see at least one veteran or
widow every month who
hasn’t claimed available benefits because he or she didn’t
know about them. That could
add up to about $12,000 a
year, Perry said.
Some elderly veterans
don’t know they can apply for
different types of monetary
benefits, such as payments
for veterans who served during wartime or were injured
in service, Brewer said.

A Hamilton County Circuit Court judge will hold
a hearing for an order of

whose wife suspects he put
poison in her coffee.
Liesa Hill filed the
order Aug. 3 with a hearing
expected today.
Judge Marie Williams
will hear the case at 1:30
p.m. Sept. 24.
According to documents,
Hill, a pharmacist, told
authorities she has been
ill since 2011 and that doctors couldn’t diagnose her
condition even as she grew
sicker.
Hill said she saw her
husband, Hal Hill, slip
something into her morning
cup of coffee. She provided
a sample to Lookout Mountain police. After testing,
the authorities confirmed
the coffee contained high
levels of barium, a toxic
heavy metal.
Hal Hill, who is a wellknown physician, has not
been charged. The investigation remains open.

Asked if DesJarlais has
any desire to debate, campaign spokesman Brandon
Lewis said, “I think we
answered that,” indicating
that DesJarlais’ email says
the congressman will evaluate the question “later in
the campaign.”
But DesJarlais’ mind is
unlikely to change if history is any indication. After
agreeing as the 4th District Republican nominee
to debate former U.S. Rep.
Lincoln Davis, D-Tenn.,
DesJarlais dropped out on
the day of the event.
It was the 2010 race’s only
scheduled debate, and DesJarlais defeated Davis a week
later.
In his email to Stewart,
DesJarlais said his decision
stemmed partially from his
opinion that “the people I
serve deserve to know who
you feel should lead our
nation as president.”
The Chattanooga Times
Free Press attempted to close
that loop, asking whether
Stewart supports President
Barack Obama or the Republican nominee, former Massachusetts Gov. Mitt Romney.
“Scott DesJarlais wants to
talk about how I might vote
in the future, and I want to
talk about how he has voted
in the past,” Stewart said in
a written response. “So if he
wants to ask me that question, he can meet me man to
man on a stage in a debate
and we can ask each other
those questions.”
Stewart has a news conference scheduled today in
Murfreesboro. The election

The Romney/Ryan divide
I
n picking Rep. Paul Ryan, the
House budget committee chairman,
as his vice presidential nominee,
Mitt Romney has obviously attempted
to reset the tone and scope of the presidential debate. Yet the quandary that
poses for Romney is undeniable.
Ryan’s House-approved budgets the
past two years aim to: gut Medicare
and turn it into to a declining voucher
program; diminish and privatize Social
Security; cut Medicaid for the poor and
its nursing home coverage for formerly
middle-class Americans; slash safety
spending by 60 percent; reduce student
aid; give more tax breaks to corporations and the ultra-wealthy; and raise
taxes on the nation’s broad middle class,
mainly by eliminating their tax breaks,
including home mortgages. But it still
doesn’t project a balanced budget until
2040, largely because it calls for huge tax
cuts for corporations and the rich, and a
promise to keep raising the Pentagon’s
budget with inflation.
Romney can hardly advance that
documented fiscal approach as his
own agenda and win the presidency.
So it’s no coincidence that within a day
of announcing his choice of Ryan and
basking in the tea party limelight with
him, Romney quietly began spreading
the word that Ryan’s budget views would
not rule his policies. Which raises the
questions, why Ryan, and what, specifically, are Romney’s own fiscal goals?
The answer to “why Ryan” is that
Romney expects Ryan’s bent for social
extremism will boost the GOP’s tea party
turnout in November. That’s certainly
the way conservatives are reading it.
Americans for Limited Government, for
example, asserted Monday that Ryan’s
proposals now will be “front and center in the presidential campaign going
forward.”
But with Romney already feeling compelled to dismiss Ryan’s budget leadership over extremists in the House, it’s
clear that Romney just wants the image
of Ryan, without the substance or the
baggage.
Never mind. Romney can’t run well
with Ryan, and simultaneously run away
from the reason he picked him. He now
owns Ryan’s fiscal policies, and he will
be delineated by them — largely because
he articulated support for Ryan’s unbalanced approach during the primaries,
while Newt Gingrich rejected them as
“right-wing social engineering.”
In any case, Romney’s own promises
to cut taxes on dividends, capital gains
the higher income tax margins — all
cuts that most benefit the top tier of
the top 1 percent — effectively proposes
substantially deeper tax cuts than the
disastrous George W. Bush cuts of 2001
and 2003.
In fact, the Romney/Ryan team presents Americans with a stark choice.
Turning ever further to the right, where
rich corporations and individuals are
given what they want, where health care
reform is denied, and where 60 percent
of the nation’s safety net is eliminated, is
not a sane route for this nation to take.
It would hurt 95 percent of Americans,
and leave those most in need without
the leavening hand of government when
they are unemployed, uninsured, young
and poor, old and vulnerable, seeking
college aid or food stamps or care for
chronic conditions. This direction, as the
nation’s Catholic bishops have warned,
is essentially immoral.
The November election has now
become a referendum on the nation’s
moral character and future prosperity:
a choice between looking out for the
common good, or nurturing a Darwinian
rapaciousness.
Debate on Scouts’ gay ban persists
When the Boys Scouts of America
reaffirmed its no-gays policy last month,
the immediate reaction was predictable.
Liberal advocacy and gay rights groups,
for the most part, denounced it. Conservative groups — religious, political
and civic — generally supported it. One
group with strong BSA ties took longer
to make its views known. Eagle Scouts,
those who earned the organization’s
highest rank, are similarly divided over
the issue, but those distressed by the
policy are now taking dramatic action to
protest the ban. They are returning their
cherished, hard-won medals.
No one is sure how many Eagle Scouts
have returned their badges, but the count
seems to be growing. So does the number
of Eagle Scouts who have sent pictures
and letters to media outlets and Scout
offices to protest the policy, or who have
condemned the policy but say they will
keep their medal and work actively to
reverse the ban. The total already might
be in the tens of thousands.
Boy Scout officials refuse to provide a
count of Eagle Scouts who have returned
medals or officially made their disagreement known. A spokesman did say that
the group respects the protesters’ right
“to express their opinion.” Perhaps the
organization believes silence will shorten
the lifespan of the protest against the
ban on openly gay youth and adults as
members and leaders. That’s extremely
unlikely.
The protest is too heartfelt to expire
soon. Typical of the disgusted engendered by reaffirmation of the ban are
remarks from a physician in Illinois and
a lawyer in Kentucky, both holders of the
Eagle medal. “I can no longer maintain
any connection to an organization which
actively promotes such a bigoted and
misguided policy,” said Dr. Robert Wise.
“To that end, I am interested in removing
all evidence that I was ever a Scout.”
Jackson Cooper, from Louisville, said
he was unsure if any of his fellow Scouts
were gay. “But I do know,” he wrote, “that
my now deceased mother, a lesbian,
would not have been allowed to serve
as a den mother if her orientation had
been public knowledge. The thought that
I have invested such a large part of my
life with an organization that would have
turned my own mother away breaks my
heart.”
Eagle Scouts, arguably, are the most
visible proponents of Scouting, and their
voices should be heard. BSA officials
should heed the protesters, not stifle or
ignore them. The BSA should revisit the
reaffirmation of its ban on gays rather
than adamantly say the topic is closed
to additional discussion.
Doing so would acknowledge the
increasing inclusiveness of U.S. society
and honor the rules in the handbook
which call on Scouts (and, by inference, Scouting) to respect and defend
the rights of all people. Refusing to do
so should and will extend the current
debate.

Unfortunately, we don’t
often get that vantage point.
And beyond those circles of
trust, both men can seem
as if they are sealed in their
own spaceships.
The big difference, the
one that will probably
decide this presidential race,
is this: Barack Obama is able
to convey an impression of
likability to voters. Given
how private he is, an enigma
even to some who are close
to him, it’s an incredible performance.
That likability slips
through your hands at closer range. The president survived a “raised by wolves”
upbringing, as Michelle
has called it. He retained
the monastic skills that
sustained him through the
solitude of his years in New
York. His “winning smile,”
as Jonathan Alter wrote in
“The Promise,” “obscured a
layer of self-protective ice.”
His staffers respect him, but
he doesn’t inspire the kind
of adoration that the Bush
presidents got. And the pillow-plumping romance with
the press is over.
The New York Times’
Amy Chozick wrote that
the president “has come
to believe the news media
have had a role in frustrating
his ambitions to change the
terms of the country’s political discussion.”
He can be thin-skinned

and insecure at times, but he
radiates self-sufficiency, such
a clean, simple aesthetic that
he could have been designed
by Steve Jobs — Siri without
the warmth.
Yet voters see something
genuine, and that is why
Obama seems to be surviving the stalled economy
and his own chuckleheaded
remark: “If you’ve got a business — you didn’t build that.
Somebody else made that
happen.”
A recent USA Today/Gallup poll showed Romney
with higher marks on fixing
the deficit, jobs, taxes and
the economy. But Obama
soared on personal traits
— maintaining a 30-point
advantage in likability, and
better numbers on honesty,
trust and empathy.
Romney advisers attributed his free fall in the polls
to brass-knuckle Obama ads
and summer doldrums rather than Mitt dullness. Maybe
voters think Romney is
already so sheathed in secret
bubbles — Bain, Mormonism, his stint as governor of
a liberal state — that electing
him to the biggest bubble of
all, the White House, would
not be a good idea.
Even Republicans seem
to have given up defending
Mitt’s charms. As John Boehner memorably put it, “The
American people probably
aren’t going to fall in love
with Mitt Romney.”
Some say Romney waited too long to put up his
biographical ads and give
personal interviews, letting himself be defined and
slimed by the Obama ads.
“The Obama camp can
raise a ‘Mission Accomplished’ banner on their
summer project,” said Rahm
Emanuel, the Chicago mayor
and former Obama chief of
staff. “With Romney’s help,
they have defined Romney
as a man with total disregard for the struggles of the
middle class.”
Once a candidate gains
the advantage in “Who do
you want to have a beer
with?” — even if he doesn’t
drink beer — it’s very hard
to reverse.
When Obama does rough
ads, it allays the fear that he’s
the sort who can get rolled
by the banks, by the generals, by the Republicans in the
House. When Romney does
rough ads, it reinforces the
fear that he’s unfeeling and
a bit of a bully marketed by
political mercenaries.
With only two weeks to
go before the convention,
the question burns: Will
Mitt’s new mate, Rep. Paul
D. Ryan of Wisconsin, make
his run more personable?
You can bolster your
relatability with your No. 2
pick, at least with certain
demographics, as Obama did
with Joe Biden. But Americans like to like their president. “You can’t outsource
likability,” Emanuel says.
“You can’t have an offshore
account for it in the Bahamas
and the Cayman Islands.”
In The Wall Street Journal
last week, Karl Rove urged
Mitt to reveal his character
in his convention speech by
talking openly about “his
father’s modest upbringing,
his wife’s illness and his
wealth.”
Obama lost the thread
of his narrative of hope and
change, and Romney never
developed one, even on
his supposed specialty, the
economy.

Seek protection
from violence
In the peaceful, Utopian
world of Mr. Cook (column,
Aug. 8), it would seem that
dangerous predators are rare.
So rare, in fact, that he reduces heinous violence to a mere
statistic.
The incredible odds of
his logic state that acts of
violence are more rare than
getting struck by lightning.
Churches, theaters, parks and
even homes are safe havens
where personal protection is
not needed. I suppose that
those victims of unspeakable
violence were just unlucky.
Where have the most headline- grabbing acts of violence
occurred? Churches, theaters,
schools and during home
invasions.
Gang-related violence,
including wild shots fired
into a crowd in a public park,
should be still fresh in many
Chattanooga residents’ minds.
Those acts are what cause
many law-abiding citizens to
seek ways to protect themselves. Churches and schools
should be safe sanctuaries
but we know that it is only
a false sense of security at
best. Common sense tells us
to seek shelter when lightning
is present.

Obama works
to cooperate
When Barack Obama ran
for president in 2008, he had
been a U.S. senator not quite
four years. His Senate record
stands among the most liberal.
Legislation bearing his
name was passed for armament reduction and federal
transparency and relief aid.
He worked to reform lobbying, campaign financing,
election, immigration.
He legislated for climate
control, troop reduction, Iran
divestment and nuclear terrorism reduction. George
Bush vetoed his legislation for
state children’s health insurance program and military
family job protections.
Obama was miraculously
elected president, bringing with him the hopes and
dreams he had acted on in the
Senate. But his election followed entrenched Republican
congressional rule from 1994
until 2006 and eight years of
Bush/Cheney policies culminating in two wars and world
economic disaster.
The aftermath of those
policies will continue to affect
the country and world for generations. Obama is by nature a
patient consensus builder and
has worked hard to cooperate
with Republicans, receiving
nothing in return.
In a second term he will be
free to act out of his progressive core. Finally, as president
over next term, he could possibly nominate three Supreme
Court justices to break up the
politicized Republican majority on the court.

Littlefield wrong
on gun legislation
Mayor Ron Littlefield is
way off base yet again in
his Sunday editorial column
(Aug. 12, in the Perspective
section). With his fellow leftwing, anti-gun Bloomberg
and Mayors Against Illegal
Guns and most liberals, he
immediately jumps to “more
gun laws ... more gun laws!”
The liberal solution to all
problems is more laws!
Let’s see, using Hizhonor’s
first example: Mathews illegally left his halfway house,
his relatives broke federal
law by buying guns for him,
he broke federal and state
law by possessing a gun,
the person he traded with
was apparently an unlicensed “gun dealer” breaking numerous laws, it was
illegal for Mathews to rob
a pawn shop, it was illegal
for him to kill officer Tim
Chapin, it was illegal for him
to resist arrest, it was illegal,
etc., etc. Hizhonor’s solution
is to pass a law that would
make it illegal to bequeath
my firearms to my children
or trade a gun with my nextdoor neighbor ... right.
As for the mass killings,
the mayor should lobby
for a nut-free-zone law. If
Hizhonor had lived in prehistoric times, he would

size of rocks — the original

We live in a world
where evil exists
David Cook’s commentary
(Aug. 8) charging the NRA
with treason because it represents those of us who wish to
be able to defend ourselves is
ludicrous.
He accuses the NRA of
a “fear-based narrative that
sees other people as potential
criminals instead of neighbors,
citizens or children of God ...”
Anyone who would buy into
that thinking should stop and
ask themselves why police
officers carry guns, as well as
other weapons. Unfortunately,
we live in a real world where
evil exists.
I believe his reference to
Tennessee Rep. Debra Maggart and the old familiar “guns
in bars” line in the same paragraph is telling. There’s no
mileage left in the “guns in
bars” premise, so it’s time to
criticize the NRA for political
choices.
I suspect most NRA members do not feel betrayed by the
NRA as Cook suggests. Quite
the opposite. It’s refreshing to
see a politician like Maggart
go when unresponsive to the
citizens represented!
Treason? The NRA is made
up of millions of American
citizens. Most of us value representative government. Last
time I checked, it wasn’t treasonable to lobby a representative or work to remove one
from office. But Cook would
have readers think so!

Evil on rampage
in Muslim world
Muslims throughout the
world are in the midst of a
monthlong fasting, hoping
they will come a little closer
to Allah and become more
righteous.
During the month of Ramadan, Muslims give alms to the
less fortunate, read the Quran,
offer extra prayers than the five
times of day they are allotted.
Fasting is a good religious
tradition that the Quran prescribes: “O’ ye who believe!
There is prescribed for you
the fast ... that ye may ward
off evil ...”
But the evil is on rampage
throughout the Muslim world.
Muslims are killing Muslims,
they are fleeing their homes,
there is a restlessness and no
peace.
The dream of the nearness
to Allah and becoming more
righteous has been dashed in
the dust and smoke caused by
their own brothers.
Muhammad Iqbal, a poet
and philosopher, wrote: “With
the passion of religion Muslims have built Mosques in a
short time, but their evil hearts
have never become adherent
to true worship.”
Evil is so pervasive in
human life that all the fasting, praying, alms giving and
all good deeds cannot make
human beings righteous.
And I wonder who shall
rescue us from evil?

Water company
starts upgrades
Tennessee American
Water Co. will replace
23 large diameter valves
across its Chattanooga
service territory over the
next five months to help
improve water service
and reliability, company
President Deron Allen
said.
The $1 million upgrade
is part of $127 million in
local water infrastructure
improvements made by
the privately owned water
system over the past 16
years.
“These valve replacements will help improve
water quality and system
reliability, increase water
pressure in our service
areas, and help maintain
adequate water flows
throughout our system,”
Allen said.
Genesee A&B
expands plant
Genesee A&B is

announced Monday that
the custom metal parts

the concern neighbors have
expressed.
He also said there’d be a lot
more traffic on Dallas Road
near North Market, which he
termed an already dangerous
intersection.
“We feel a roundabout
might be the best solution,”
Chapin said.
Chase said his company has
commissioned a traffic study.
“We’re working on all that,”
he said. “The tenant wants to
be a good neighbor.”

FSG chief optimistic
Cutting bad loans, selling stock could offset mounting losses
By Dave Flessner

C
hattanooga’s biggest community
bank reported a
bigger quarterly
loss this spring, but bank
officials said Monday they
have reduced the number of problem loans and
could try to strengthen the
undercapitalized bank by
selling more stock.
First Security Group,
the parent company of FSG
Bank, lost nearly $7.3 million, or $4.82 per share, in
the second quarter of 2012.
The net loss was nearly 35
percent greater than a year
ago and brought the cumulative red ink for FSG over
“
We firmly believe that our asset quality
issues are well-defined and that we have
the ability to resolve them.
”
— Michael Kramer, FSG president
the past three and a half
years to more than $120
million.
But in a statement Monday, FSG President Michael
Kramer said the $1.1 billion asset bank is reducing its delinquent loans
and attracting more core
deposits.
“We continue to grow
deposit market share and
are building an excellent
team of bankers to transform FSG Bank into the
bank of choice in our markets,” said Kramer, who
was hired last fall to help
turn around the fortunes of
First Security Group after
the bank dismissed founding CEO Rodger Holley.
Kramer noted that the
number of “special mention” classif ied loans
— often regarded as the
leading indicator of future
potential problem loans —
have been cut in half this
year. Bank-owned repossessed property is down by
20 percent so far this year.
FSG had to write off
or write down the value
of much of its real estate
loan portfolio because of
the housing slump and subsequent fall in construction
and property values.
“We firmly believe that
our asset quality issues are
well-defined and that we
have the ability to resolve
them,” Kramer said.
Nonetheless, First Security Group still is not in

Hundreds of Chickamauga and Ringgold residents
voiced opposition Monday
night to a proposed state
mandate that local phone
executives say could as
much as double some telephone line charges.
But state regulators
said they are not likely
to approve a double-digit
percent increase in phone
line rates for the two companies’ nearly 15,000 customers, though they may
approve a cut in state subsidies received by Chickamauga and Ringgold telephone companies.
AT&T recently requested state regulators examine
whether the two cities’ telephone companies deserve
the millions in subsidies
they received over the
past two years, more than
half of which were paid by
AT&T.

Howard was one of the

Wedding venue touts relaxed schedules, atmosphere 2 local utilities make
■ Name: Pigeon Mountain
Plantation
■ Location: 3782 Shinbone
Ridge Road, LaFayette, GA
30728
■ Contact information:
706-996-7005,
PigeonMountainPlantation.
com
■ Products/services:
Wedding and event venue on
a working farm
■ Age: The venue will have
its ribbon cutting Friday.
■ Getting started: The
plantation’s owners have been
running the farm for years but
hadn’t been living in or using
the house. They decided
to renovate it toward the
beginning of the year and use
it as an event venue.
■ Standing out: Site
manager Michelle Herod has
20 years of experience in the
wedding industry. The biggest
problem she’s found couples
run into at a variety of venues

One of many picturesque views accent the outskirts of
the Pigeon Mountain Plantation.
is time management. She
wants to create a laid-back
atmosphere where wedding
parties don’t need to worry
about cleaning up and leaving
by a certain time and can just
enjoy themselves. “Who wants
to relax and think, ‘Oh gee,
we’ve got to be out of here in
four hours?’” she asked.
■ Target market: Herod
expects the venue will appeal
to a wide range of age groups
looking for their flexible
wedding experience. She’s
found local wedding parties
have been the most receptive
to the venue, but expects
to soon draw clients from
Atlanta.
■ Biggest hurdle: Building
a reputation. Wedding and
event sites often rely on
their reputations, and letting
the planning communities
know what Pigeon Mountain
Plantation is like can be
difficult.
■ Five-year goal: Herod
hopes for the site to be fully
booked as a wedding venue
by 2017. “We want people
to have happy thoughts and
good memories and have
happy things to say,” she said.
“That would be what we’re
looking for.”

Google cutting
4,000 jobs at
Motorola unit
By Peter Svensson
The Associated Press
NEW YORK — Google
Inc. is making its largest round
of layoffs ever as it announced
plans to cut about 4,000 jobs
at Motorola Mobility just
three months after buying the
struggling cellphone pioneer.
The move isn’t surprising given years of plummeting sales at Motorola, but it
signals that Google doesn’t
intend to drag Motorola along
as a money-losing venture.
Google’s stock rose $16.67,
or 2.6 percent, to $658.67 in
afternoon trading Monday following the announcement.
The reductions represent
about 20 percent of Motorola
Mobility’s 20,000 employees
and 7 percent of Google’s
overall work force. Google
says two-third of the job cuts
will take place outside of the
United States.
Google, which has been
growing for more than a
decade, doesn’t have a history
of mass layoffs. In previous
rounds of layoffs, Google at
most had cut a few hundred
workers.
Motorola, however, cut
thousands of jobs in recent
years as its cellphone division
saw sales plummet. It hasn’t
produced a mass-market hit
since it introduced the Razr
cellphone in 2004.
Motorola now makes
phones that run on Google’s
Android system, but rivals
such as Samsung Electronics
Co. have been more successful at it.
Motorola split into two in
early 2011. Google snapped up
Motorola Mobility, the half
that makes cellphones and
cable set-top boxes, for $12.4
billion. Motorola Solutions,
which makes police scanners and other professional
products, remains a separate
company.
The Motorola deal is
Google’s largest acquisition
ever and plunges it into the
business of consumer products. It puts Google in a position of competing with the
same companies it considers
partners.
Google has pledged to
keep the Motorola hardware
business separate from its
Android software division
and promised to treat Motorola like an outside company.
It turned to AsusTek Computer Inc. rather than its own
division to make a Googlebranded tablet computer
called Nexus 7.
The Associated Press
A Motorola Mobility Xoom tablet is shown at Google headquarters in Mountain
View, Calif. Google announced it is cutting about 4,000 jobs at its Motorola Mobility
cellphone business and will close or consolidate about one-third of its 90 locations.
THE STRATEGY
Google’s chief goal in buying Motorola was to use its
large patent portfolio to bolster its legal defenses.
Apple has been suing
Samsung, Motorola and
other makers of Android
smartphones, saying they
copied the iPhone. By acquiring Motorola’s patents and
transferring them to Android
phone makers such as HTC
Corp., Google can bolster
their legal defenses and
set them up to counter-sue
Apple.

FedEx to offer buyouts due
to cost increases for 2013
By Tiffany Hsu
Los Angeles Times
LOS ANGELES — FedEx
Corp., the second-largest
shipping company in the
world, will offer voluntary
buyouts to U.S. employees
in order to cut costs and
boost efficiency, the company said Monday.
The Memphis, Tenn.based company didn’t say
how many workers it hopes
to shed — just that it will
provide more details during an investors meeting in
early October.
Among the more than
300,000 FedEx employees,
the “vast majority” of buyouts will likely come from
the company’s express and
services units. Workers
nearing retirement also are
eligible, the company said.
In June, the package
In its 2012 fiscal year,
which ended May
31, FedEx reported a
profit of $2.03 billion,
or $6.41 a share, up
from $1.45 billion, or
$4.57 a share, a year
earlier.
delivery giant lowered its
forecast for its fiscal 2013
year due to “certain cost
increases.” The company
said it would announce
“significant cost reduction
programs” in the fall.
Capital spending for the
year would fall, FedEx said,
with fewer aircraft deliveries through express as more
clients save money with
slower methods. The company said it will focus more
on its “high-margin, highreturn” ground business.
Consumer confidence
hit its lowest level of the
year in July, as hiring and
wages in the U.S. took a hit
while instability in Europe
and the threat of a fiscal cliff
loomed.
“ Th e s e h e ad w i n d s
include higher employeerelated costs, including
higher pension expenses .
as well as higher depreciation costs,” Chief Financial
Officer Alan B. Graf Jr. said
in a statement. “We expect
to mitigate these challenges by reducing costs and
improving efficiencies, and
are continuing to evaluate
additional actions to substantially improve FedEx
Express margins.”
announcement, that he
believes Google is limiting
its ambitions for Motorola Mobility, a strategy he
believes to be good for investors. Devitt expects Google
to curtail Motorola to producing just a few smartphone
designs per year and perhaps
some tablets as well.
Before the acquisition,
Motorola had been trying to
turn itself around by focusing
on smartphones, which have
higher profit margins than
regular cellphones. In the
first quarter, Motorola sold
5.1 million smartphones and
3.7 million “dumb” phones.
The cuts announced Monday
will shift the company toward
smartphones even further.
The migration toward
smartphones has slowed
Motorola’s decline, but it has
still lost money in 14 out of
the past 16 quarters.
Google said in a filing with
the Securities and Exchange
Commission that the latest
cuts are intended to make the
business profitable. But the
company warned that investors should expect revenue
to fluctuate over the next few
quarters, and sales will drop
before savings take effect.
Severance payments
will cost Google about $275
million, which will largely
be charged in the current
quarter.
South Carolina maritime panel
backs widened river complaint
By Bruce Smith
The Associated Press
CHARLESTON, S.C.
— The state commission
overseeing South Carolina’s
interests on the Savannah
River joined environmental
groups Monday in asking
that a federal judge rule the
$650 million deepening of
the river’s shipping channel
is subject to South Carolina’s
environmental laws.
The Savannah River
Maritime Commission filed
documents in federal court
in Charleston saying U.S.
District Judge Richard Gergel
should settle the question.
Environmental groups in
both Georgia and South Carolina originally sued the U.S.
Army Corps of Engineers,
saying the deepening work
needs a permit under South
Carolina’s Pollution Control
Act. Maritime interests say
the river deepening is needed
so the Georgia ports can han-
dle the larger container ships
that will routinely be calling
when the Panama Canal is
expanded in 2014.
The lawsuit was brought
by the Southern Environmental Law Center on behalf of
the Savannah Riverkeeper,
based in Augusta, Ga., as well
as the South Carolina Coastal
Conservation League and the
South Carolina Wildlife Federation.
The original suit said the
corps needs a state pollution permit because toxic
cadmium in river silt will be
dumped in a dredge spoils
area on the South Carolina
side of the river.
Court documents note
there are two exemptions
under which the corps
might not be subject to the
permitting requirements of
the Clean Water Act, which
requires federal agencies to
adhere to state environmental
rules.

Warm seawater forces nuclear plant shutdown
By Stephen Singer
The Associated Press
HARTFORD, Conn. —
Connecticut’s nuclear power
plant shut down one of two
units Sunday because seawater used to cool down the
plant was too warm.
Unit 2 of Millstone Power
Station has occasionally shut
for maintenance or other
issues, but in its 37-year history it has never gone down
due to excessively warm
water, spokesman Ken Holt
said on Monday.
Water from Long Island
Sound is used to cool key
components of the plant and
is discharged back into the
sound. The water cannot be
warmer than 75 degrees and
following the hottest July on
record has been averaging 1.7
degrees above the limit, the
Nuclear Regulatory Commission said.
The federal agency issued
an “emergency license amendment” last week, allowing
Millstone, a subsidiary of
Dominion Resources Inc., to
use an average temperature of
several readings.
“It wasn’t enough to prevent us from shutting down,”
Holt said.
Richmond, Va.-based
Dominion does not have an
estimate of when the unit will
restart, Holt said.
Millstone provides half of
all power used in Connecticut
and 12 percent in New England. Its two units produce
2,100 megawatts of electricity,
which is reduced by 40 percent with Unit 2 down, Holt
said.
Marcia Blomberg, a spokeswoman for regional grid operator ISO-New England, said
the loss of electricity will not
be a major problem. The Holyoke, Mass.-based agency generally operates with a margin
of reserve and plans for the
possibility of lost resources,
she said.
In addition to the extreme
heat last month, the mild
winter didn’t help because it
kept Long Island Sound water
unusually mild, Holt said.
Dave Lochbaum, director
of the Union of Concerned
Scientists’ nuclear safety project, said he believes the partial Millstone shutdown is the
first involving a nuclear plant

Subsidies

mostly gray-haired crowd
that voiced opposition to the
proposed subsidy cuts and
subsequent rate increase.
“This affects a lot of people
who don’t have any income
other than Social Security,”
the 74-year-old said after
Monday night’s meeting.
Mark McDonald, general
manager of Chickamauga
Telephone Co., said AT&T’s
recommended cut in subsidies would necessitate a
dramatic rate increase and
possible staff cuts.
“We’d have to make it up
somewhere,” he said. “We
don’t want that. That would
be a last resort.”
Ringgold Telephone Co.
already has reduced its staff
by more than half.
The subsidies both companies receive come from
a Universal Service Fund
paid from a 1.4 percent tax
on Georgia’s telecommuni-
28, according to Sears, which
is trying to turn around its
business and spruce up its
image.
It has already closed five
Hometown stores, eight hardware stores and one Outlet
store.
Sears, which also owns
Kmart, has looked at spinoffs
and real estate sales to restore
profitability and boost shareholder confidence.
Aside from the separation
of the Hometown, Outlet and
some hardware stores, the
company announced in May
that it would spin off a stake
in its Canada division.
In its filing with the Securities and Exchange Commission, Sears Hometown &
Outlet Stores Inc. said that it
expects to raise $346.5 million
through a rights offering.
In connection with the deal
and prior to the separation, it
will take out an asset-backed
PROPOSED RATE INCREASES
AT&T is requesting
Georgia regulators lower
the amount of subsidies
available to a pair of
local phone companies.
Local telephone officials
say the changes could
cause dramatic line rate
increases — not total bill
increases — by April of
next year:
Ringgold Telephone Co.
■ Residential — 20
percent increase
■ Business — 37
percent increase
Chickamauga Telephone
Co.
■ Residential — 42
percent increase
■ Business — 100
percent increase

cation companies’ income.
The money helps rural phone
companies provide access to
homes and businesses that
otherwise would be unprofitable. Georgia has required
local phone companies to
provide that service for more
than half a century.
Though cell phones help
provide service to a number
of rural customers, Howard
pointed out that service is
not universal and often less
personal than service provided by community phone
groups.
“If I have a problem with
my computer, they’re out
here Johnny on the spot and
take care of the problem,” he
said. “Any other large conglomerate isn’t going to do
that.”
But services such as cable
and Internet access offered
by local phone companies
aren’t regulated by the state.
AT&T called for state officials to examine whether
subsidies are necessary to
keep only the phone service
line of credit from which it
will draw $75 million to $100
million to fund a cash dividend. That would bring the
total proceeds to be paid to
Sears Holdings to as much as
$446.5 million and is in line
with its previously stated goal
of raising between $400 million and $500 million.
The news sent the company’s stock up $2.94, or 5.7
percent, to close at $54.36
Monday.
going.
Pat Wingo, AT&T’s assistant vice president of regulatory affairs, said both Ringgold and Chickamauga telephone companies deserve
subsidies, but not at the current levels. He said Chickamauga Telephone could take
$700,000 less out of state
funds if the company brought
its business and special service rates to the average rural
rate across the state.
“We’re not recommending
that they have to go up, just
that those differences don’t
come out of the Universal
Service Fund,” he said.
The Georgia Public Service Commission will decide
by Oct. 16 whether to limit
the subsidies for the Chickamauga and Ringgold telephone companies. If limited,
the two companies would
have to request approval for
a rate increase, a process that
could last until April 2013.

consent order with the Office
of the Comptroller of the
Currency to boost the bank’s
capital ratios. The bank also
has yet to repay the $33 million federal loan it received
through the Troubled Asset
Relief Program.
But Kramer said the executive and strategic changes
adopted by the bank’s board
last year should eventually put
FSG back on a firm foundation
for future growth.
“Management is pursuing various options to restore
First Security’s capital to a
satisfactory level, including,
but not limited to, a private
stock placement,” FSG Chief
Financial Officer John Haddock said in the bank’s regulatory filing. “Since December
2011, management has been in
preliminary discussions with
multiple potential investors.
While no letters of intent or
binding commitments have
been executed, in management’s opinion, the reaction of
potential investors has generally been positive and has led
to continuing discussions.”
First Security Group lost
$35.4 million in 2009, $46.4
million in 2010 and $25.1 million last year. In the first half
of 2012, First Security lost
another $13.1 million.
Despite the losses, FSG
assets grew by $4.1 million
over the past year and the
bank has replaced some of
its higher-interest brokered
deposits with more lower-rate
core deposits.
Shares of First Security

NEW YORK — Sears is
moving forward with plans
to spin off its Hometown
and Outlet stores as well as
some hardware stores into a
separate publicly traded company.
Sears Holdings Corp. had
signaled that it would split
the companies back in February. There were a total of
1,238 Hometown, Outlet and
hardware stores as of April
pulling water from an open
body of water. A few nuclear
plants that draw water from
inland sources have powered
down due to excessively warm
water, he said.
Browns Ferry nuclear plant
in Alabama, for example,
reduced power for 50 days in
the summer of 2010 and fewer
than 10 days last year, said Ray
Golden, spokesman for the
Tennessee Valley Authority,
which operates the plant.

Bradley Central will look to others to replace the production of tailback Justin Houston, who graduated in the spring.
Who’s next?
By Stephen Hargis
Staff Writer
Replacing departed stars from the previous season is a ritual every high school football team faces.
But whether it’s because of versatility, game-breaking speed or just being the toughest hombres on
the field, some are tougher to replace than others.
Here are the top five biggest sets of shoes to fill
from last season:
1. ALEX KIRBY
CALHOUN LINEBACKER
Last year’s stats: He was the hammer in the middle of one
of the state’s top-ranked defenses, leading the area with 141
tackles (98 solo) to go with 12 tackles for loss, four fumble
recoveries, a touchdown fumble return and a safety.
Time to shine: Chaz Horton (6-0, 200, senior). He started
at offensive guard last year and has game experience on
defense but now must set the tone on that side of the ball.
The coaches say the fact he plays hard on every snap is
reason to believe he can take on that role.
Quote: “Alex is a throw-back kid, a hard-nosed type guy who
is very, very physical. He loves the contact and had a knack
for reading a play and getting there in a hurry to make the
stop. We don’t expect anybody to completely fill in for what
all he could do, but Chaz has a lot of ability.” — Calhoun
coach Hal Lamb
2. BRANDON SMITH
BLEDSOE COUNTY RUNNING BACK
Last year’s stats: One of the most
versatile players in the area, he
had 1,428 yards and 21 TDs
rushing as well as 709 yards
and eight TDs receiving. He also
provided key plays as the strong
safety on defense.
Time to shine: Senior Jeremiah
Gilbert (6-1, 175) has been one
of the Warriors’ best receivers for
two years and still will be counted
on heavily in that role. However,
his experience and versatility
likely mean he also will get some
carries out of the backfield, and
Brandon Smith
he is expected to be a defensive
leader at safety.
Quote: “Brandon’s a very explosive kid who could avoid
defenders and make it look easy for us. He’s one of the
better backs this school has had in a while. We don’t have

3. MALEEK ROOKS
BRAINERD RECEIVER
Last year’s stats: He totaled more than 2,200 all-purpose
yards and had 17 touchdowns and was the Panthers’
region’s player of the year. He also intercepted four passes.
Time to shine: Senior Jacoby Ramsey will play running back,
quarterback, receiver, linebacker and free safety this season.
He moves well and has particularly good hands.
Quote: “The only thing we can do is play together as a team.
No one man is going to fill [Rooks’] role.” — Brainerd coach
Stanley Jackson.
4. JUSTIN HOUSTON
BAYLOR OFFENSIVE LINE
Last year’s stats: The 6-foot-5, 285-pound Vanderbilt signee
became the fourth Baylor player to win the state’s Division
II Mr. Football award. A three-year starter on the offensive
line, where the Red Raiders ran much of their attack behind
his blocks, he also played on the defensive line during key
games, including throughout the playoffs.
Time to shine: Derek Green (6-0, 315), a senior two-year
starter, was the right guard but moved to left tackle. His
experience, size and athletic footwork can protect the
quarterback’s back side.
Quote: “Not only was [Gouger] a consistent player on the
line, but he was a leader in the huddle. He did some twoway playing for us when we needed him. When it was
crunch time, he was the guy we counted on to run behind
for the tough yards.” — Baylor coach Phil Massey
THE BLITZ IS BACK
The Associated Press
ATLANTA — Eric Stults
combined with two relievers
on a five-hitter, Chase Headley
homered and drove in two runs
and the San Diego Padres beat
the Atlanta Braves 4-1 on Monday night.
Stults (3-2) gave up five hits
2
and one run in 7 ⁄3 innings — his
longest start in three years. While
with the Dodgers, Stults beat the
Giants 8-0 on May 9, 2009, his
last complete game.
The Padres, who had a sixgame winning streak snapped on
Sunday, have won eight of 10 for
the first time this season.

San Diego’s Carlos Quentin in the first inning Monday.

There are schools still interested in
Reese Phillips, but the Signal Mountain
High School quarterback has tuned out.
Ranked No. 3 on the Times Free Press
Dynamite Dozen, Phillips committed on
June 6 while on an unofficial visit to Kentucky’s Wildcats.
His summer was most enjoyable.
“Summer was good. I haven’t had a lot
to do since I committed,” he said. “Now
spring was hectic, but I actually had a normal teenager’s summer — working out but
also spending time with my friends and
doing some swimming. I relaxed, which
was nice.”
Recruiters were in and out of Signal
Mountain during the spring, often tripping
over each other as Phillips threw and at
least waving to each other as they passed
going up and down the mountain.
A pair of mid-major school recruiters
tendered scholarship offers before they
left the campus and one knew it was a lost
cause.
“He’s the best I’ve seen and I’ve been
all the way to Texas, but we’ll never get a
chance to sign him,” one of them said.
He was most prophetic. Less than a
week later Kentucky quarterback coach
Randy Sanders stopped by. He also wanted
to offer on the spot but had to wait because
Wildcats coach Joker Phillips was out of
the country.
“My mom and I went up there to look
over the campus — the dorms, the facilities and the academic support for athletes,”
■ San Diego’s starter limits
Yonder Alonso had three hits
and Chris Denorfia had two hits
and scored two runs for the
Padres.
Stults lost his bid for a shutout in the eighth when Michael
Bourn singled and scored on
Martin Prado’s triple into the
right-field corner. Luke Gregerson struck out Jason Heyward to
end the inning.

BRADLEY CENTRAL ATHLETE
Last year’s stats: He ran for more than 1,100 yards,
averaging 11 per carry, and had 13 touchdowns. He also
had more than 500 receiving yards, averaging 20 per catch,
and five reception TDs. He set the table for the offense as a
kick and punt returner, and he returned an interception for a
score in a two-point win over Ooltewah.
Time to shine: It will take the combination of juniors Baylor
Terrell (5-8, 150) and Dee Crisp (6-2, 190) to give the Bears
the big-play capability that Houston brought.
Quote: “The biggest thing was Justin’s speed. At any
moment he could change the game for us.” — Bradley coach

ELIZABETHTON, Tenn. — The
University of Tennessee’s defense doesn’t
know who its star will be this season.
The Volunteers have a pretty good idea
who their “Star” will be, though.
It’s essentially the nickelback position
in coordinator Sal Sunseri’s scheme, and
Eric Gordon has had his sights set on the
position since the offseason began.
His time at the nickelback position last
season certainly has helped.
“I just feel I’ve locked down on my technique a little better, but everything I feel
like is going pretty well,” the Nashville
native said Monday morning after Tennessee finished the first of two practices on
the team’s fourth day at Milligan College.
“I’m very comfortable at the Star position.
I’ve been playing it for a while, so it’s a
comfortable fit for me.”
The 5-foot-9, 190-pound third-year junior
had just one tackle in Saturday’s scrimmage
at Science Hill High School, but he made a
handful of plays from the spot in 2011. The
most memorable one was the game-winning interception return for a score against
Vanderbilt. Yet it’s always seemed to be
feast-or-famine for a noted risk-taker.
For every moment he showed up last season — an interception against Middle Tennessee State or a big hit against tailback Isaiah Crowell against Georgia for lost yardage
— there were just as many moments he was
nowhere to be seen. Gordon had no tackles

BASKETBALL
■ Tennessee Temple University has signed
a legitimate big man for its first basketball
season under coach Brac Brady: 6-foot-9
John Jones from Chattahoochee Tech. Jones grew
up in Louisiana but moved to
Cobb County, Ga., in time to
play three years of basketball
for Campbell High School in
Smyrna, interrupted by his
junior season at Wheeler High
in Marietta. He averaged about
10 points and eight rebounds
John Jones a game as a Campbell senior,
graduating in 2008, and about 10 points and
seven rebounds two years later as a Chattahoochee Tech freshman, when he was limited
by injury but played most of the second half
of the season. He played only seven games
for the two-year school last season. “First of
all he’s a nice kid. We might have to work to
get the nasty out of him on the court,” Brady
said. “He’s big and athletic. He jumps well
and moves well for a guy his size. I think he’s
the kind of kid who can have an immediate
impact.” Jones had discussions with some
NCAA Division I schools, including Florida
A&M and South Carolina State, as well as
Columbus State in Division II and NAIAgoing-NCAA Lee University. His recruiting
process was hampered, he said, because he
has been helping his twin sister raise her three
children, and Lee assistant coach Ezell Dodd
said it was a “pleasant surprise” to learn Jones
“was still available.”

Ex-WBA champ
Dokes, 54, dies
AKRON, Ohio — Michael Dokes, a former World Boxing Association heavyweight
champion, died Saturday, according to the
Rhoden Memorial Home in Akron. He was
54. The Akron Beacon Journal reported that
the boxer died in an Akron hospice from
liver cancer. Dokes won the heavyweight
title at 24 in December 1982, when referee
Joey Curtis made a controversial decision
to stop his fight against champion Mike
Weaver. Dokes dominated the first round
over Weaver, prompting the decision. An
admitted problem with cocaine helped him
lose the WBA title only nine months later to
Gerrie Coetzee, however, and Dokes never
held the heavyweight crown again. Known
as “Dynamite” Dokes because he packed a
powerful punch, he had a career record of 536-2. He last fought in November 1997, when
he weighed 280 pounds.
MIXED MARTIAL ARTS
■ CHARLESTON, S.C. — Authorities say
more tests will be needed to determine what
caused the death of a 30-year-old mixed martial
arts fighter from Georgia who collapsed after
a weekend bout in Mount Pleasant. Charleston
County Coroner Rae Wooten said Monday’s
autopsy was not conclusive and a microscopic
exam of heart and brain tissue will be needed. Those tests could take up to two months.
Authorities say Tyrone Mims of Augusta, Ga.,
collapsed after the fight and was pronounced
dead about 9:30 p.m. Saturday. The mixed
martial arts event at Omar Shrine Temple at
Patriots Point was called “Fight Night at the
Point 6.”

Gary Nicklaus finally gets chance at Cherry Hill
The Associated Press
AURORA, Colo. — After missing the 1990 U.S. Amateur at Cherry
Hills because of a heart ailment,
Gary Nicklaus, the son of the legendary golfer, was back Monday in
Colorado as a 43-year-old competing with 311 other golfers in this
year’s edition of the amateur.
A small gallery that included his
father and mother, Jack and Barbara Nicklaus, watched the younger
Nicklaus tee off at the 7,378-yard,
par-70 CommonGround Golf
Course, which along with Cherry
Hills is being used over two days of
stroke-play qualifying. Gary Nicklaus finished the opening round 1
over par and is tied for 64th.
The top 64 finishers will advance
CLOSER TO HOME
MTSU golfer Brett Patterson
from McMinnville shot
a 1-over-par 71 at the
CommonGround course in
the opening round of the
U.S. Amateur. On the par-71
Cherry Hills Course, UTC
senior Steven Fox opened
with a 72, while former Baylor
School and current University
of Georgia golfer Keith
Mitchell shot a 76.
to match play, which begins
Wednesday and will be played on
the 7,409-yard, par-71 course at
Cherry Hills Country Club. Any ties
will be resolved by a playoff prior
to the commencement of match
play, which concludes Sunday.
On the first day of qualifying,
Bobby Wyatt, 20, of Mobile, Ala.,
was in the lead after shooting a
7-under 64 at the Cherry Hills
course. He’ll conclude qualifying
play today on the CommonGround
course.
Twenty-two years ago, Gary
Nicklaus was an up-and-coming
golfer who inspired comparisons
to his father, a four-time U.S. Open
and two-time U.S. amateur champion. But Gary Nicklaus fell ill on
the eve of the ‘90 tournament and
spent a week in the hospital undergoing treatment for pericarditis, or
inflammation of the heart.
He turned pro a year later but
never managed to duplicate the
success he had as an amateur, losing his PGA Tour card nine years
ago. The younger Nicklaus, who
resides in Jupiter, Fla., gave up pro
golf in favor of joining the family’s
golf course design and apparel
business.
He kept playing the game,
though, and in 2007 he was reinstated as an amateur. He qualified
for this year’s amateur during sectional play in Wellington, Fla.
Wyatt, who plays for the University of Alabama, birdied four of
the first five holes en route to his
front-running status on the first day
of qualifying.
“Hopefully, I can play a good
round [today],” Wyatt said. “I am
feeling really good about my game
right now. Hopefully, I can carry it
along all week.”
Wyatt’s teammate at Alabama,
Justin Thomas of Goshen, Ky., was
among five players tied for second
at 5 under.
Thomas, the Jack Nicklaus award
winner as the top collegiate golfer a
year ago, shot a 65 at the CommonGround course. He did not miss a
green during a bogey-free round
that also included three birdies and
an eagle.
“I hit it pretty well,” Thomas
said. “I just took advantage of my
scoring opportunities. I’m obviously going to be pleased anytime
I shoot a 65.”
Serena goes for
Cincinnati title
The Associated Press
By George Henry
The Associated Press
FLOWERY BRANCH, Ga. — As
he prepares for his fifth season as starting quarterback of the Atlanta Falcons,
Matt Ryan is grateful for all the rest he
can get.
The Falcons’ coaching staff films
each pass Ryan throws in practice
before and during the season to give
the team an exact number of the wear
and tear on his right arm.
It’s an approach Atlanta started in
2008 when general manager Thomas
Dimitroff and coach Mike Smith were
hired and Ryan was drafted with the
NFL’s third overall pick.
Ryan has missed just two games in
his career, and none since Week 14 of
the 2009 season.
“I feel great,” Ryan said Monday. “My
body feels really, really good, but we’re
just trying to stay on top of it.
Ryan had a “day off ” earlier this
month, still throwing passes in light
drills, but leaving the bulk of the firstteam offense work to backups Chris
Redman, John Parker Wilson and rookie
Dominique Davis.
Every little bit of rest helps Ryan,
who passed for a franchise single-season high 4,177 yards last season. His
arm was far more affected, however,
by the 24 sacks and 84 hits he absorbed
from opponents.
“Smitty was kind enough to give me
a day to rest [10 days ago], which was
good and it helps out,” Ryan said. “We
put it on a date after a day off so it was
back to back days where I got two days
of rest. Just kind of monitoring it.”
As is the custom with most NFL
teams’ starting quarterback, Ryan is
unlikely to play past the first quarter
of Atlanta’s second preseason game on
Thursday when the Falcons host Cincinnati.
In last week’s home loss to Baltimore, Ryan completed 9 of 13 passes
for 155 yards, one touchdown and
one interception. His night ended
after Jacquizz Rodgers ran for a short
touchdown that gave the Falcons a 140 lead on the first play of the second
quarter.
“It was a great start, and that’s all it
was because it was one quarter, but I
thought he was very efficient,” Smith
said. “I think it’s something you’ve seen
as a trend throughout training camp.
I thought in our work [in practice at
Coahulla Creek High School early last
week] against the [Tennessee] Titans
he was very efficient and going to the
right place for the most part. You saw
the same thing on Thursday night in
that first quarter. He thought he moved
the ball around well.”
Julio Jones and Roddy White caught
all of Ryan’s completions against Baltimore, and the only other receiver he
targeted was rookie Drew Davis on a
deep incompletion early in the first.
Jones put on an acrobatic show,
catching six passes for 109 yards. The
second-receiver beat right cornerback
Cary Williams for a 7-yard touchdown
catch on the left sideline of the end zone
and later beat left cornerback Lardarius
Webb for a 36-yard grab down the right
sideline.
“Some of the reads told him to go to
Julio, but I think he distributed it very
well,” Smith said. “I think he’s not only
getting a good chemistry with Julio, but
with all of our receivers.”
Because he has continued the same
positive rapport he had last year with
Jones and White, Ryan is likely to incorporate No. 3 receiver Harry Douglas
more this week. Douglas missed the
Ravens game with a rib injury.
“One thing I like about preseason
games is it gives you an opportunity
to see how things shake out, because
you’re not really game-planning for
somebody else,” Ryan said. “You’re kind
of just adjusting to things on the fly. It’s
a good indicator of what guys really
know. It’s encouraging to see some of
the positive things and some of the
negative things.”
Cowboys clip Raiders in exhibition opener
“We kind of want to see
him with some of the other
players for a longer period of
time,” Munchak said.
The Associated Press
OAKLAND, Calif. —
Darren McFadden picked
up where he left off before
a foot injury cut last season
short by gaining 38 yards on
Oakland’s first three plays
of the exhibition season and
the Raiders went on to lose
to the Dallas Cowboys 3-0
Monday night.
McFadden, who missed
the last nine games of 2011
with a Lisfranc injury to his
right foot, opened with a 4yard run, an 18-yard reception and a 16-yard run to the
delight of the Raiders fans.
But Carson Palmer threw
an interception to Gerald
Sensabaugh on the next play
for Oakland.
Dan Bailey’s 33-yard field
goal on the opening drive of
the second half for Dallas
provided the only scoring.
Former Red Bank and Tennessee Tech standout Tim
Benford saw his first NFL
action with the Cowboys on
Monday, catching a 9-yard pass
from Stephen McGee near the
end of the third quarter.
Titans to start Locker
At Nashville, Jake Locker
will get his first start of the
preseason on Friday night
against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Jaguars get Bussey
The Associated Press
Oakland running back Lonyae Miller runs against the
Dallas Cowboys during the second quarter the Cowboys’ 3-0 win in NFL preseason action.
Coach Mike Munchak
made the announcement after
Monday’s practice that the
2011 first-round pick would
start after Matt Hasselbeck
started Saturday night’s 27-17
loss in Seattle.
“We’ll start Jake on Friday. It gives him an opportunity to start the game
from the beginning. Then,
Matt will come in and we’ll
go from there,” Munchak
said.
The plan calls for both
quarterbacks to play longer
than they did in the opener,
with Locker going about 20
to 25 plays with the offense.
“You want to give them
enough to where you can
get some drives going. You
hope you’re out there longer. You want to get them
in the 20s as far as plays,”
Munchak said. “It’s a position he hasn’t been in yet.
Obviously we started Matt
last week and we’ll do the
opposite this weekend.”
Locker played only one
series off the bench with
the first team against the
Seahawks.
At Jacksonville, Fla., the
Jacksonville Jaguars claimed
second-year linebacker Nate
Bussey off waivers from New
Orleans on Monday.
The Jaguars also waived
undrafted rookie wide receiver Charles Gilbert.
Bussey was a seventhround pick in the 2011 draft.
He spent the season on the
Saints practice squad before
playing in New Orleans’ playoff win over Detroit.
Fairley’s trial delayed
Detroit Lions defensive
tackle Nick Fairley’s court
hearing on charges including driving under the influence and attempting to elude
police has been pushed back
to Sept. 26.
Mobile, Ala., County District Judge George Hardesty
Jr. granted defense attorney Sid Harrell’s request
for a delay on Friday. Fairley earlier had a hearing on
a misdemeanor marijuana
possession charge in Mobile
Municipal Court continued
until Nov. 27.
with doubles on my mind,
so singles was the ultimate
goal for me.”
And those gold medals
are safely tucked away.
“My gold medals are
in a location I probably
shouldn’t say, in case someone wants to go and take
them,” she said. “They’re
not with me.”
Williams now can turn
her attention to closing out
her hardcourt season, which
ends with the U.S. Open
starting Aug. 27 in New York.
She said her recent success
on grass does not have her
wishing to play on it more.
Kvitova tops Li Na
At Montreal, Petra Kvitova outlasted China’s Li Na
7-5, 2-6, 6-3 to take the Rogers Cup title.
The 22-year-old Czech
earned her first tournament
win of the year after taking
six titles last year, including
Wimbledon.
It was the first of Kvitova’s eight career victories to
be won in North America.
The match featured two
Grand Slam champions from
2011, as Li took the French
Open. Li is 0-3 in tournament finals this year.
Kvitova, seeded fifth,
struggled at the start, hitting several balls long. She
fell behind 3-1 before she
found the range with her
forehand and charged back
to take the lead.
Even then, she needed to
save three break points to
take a 6-5 lead, then won the
set on her fifth break point
against the 10th-seeded Li.
Belarus shot putter
stripped of gold
By Stephen Wilson
The Associated Press
LONDON — Just hours
after the close of the Olympics, a female shot putter
from Belarus was stripped
of her gold Monday in the
first case of an athlete losing a medal for doping at
the London Games.
With the disqualification
of Nadzeya Ostapchuk, the
gold medal was awarded
to Valerie Adams of New
Zealand — who winds up as
Olympic champion for the
second time in a row.
The International Olympic
Committee said Ostapchuk,
a former world champion,
tested positive for steroids
both before and after winning the shot put last week
for her first Olympic gold.
After an IOC hearing,
she was formally expelled
from the games and had her
victory and medal removed
from the records. She was
the eighth athlete, and first
medalist, caught during the
IOC’s London drug-testing
program.
“Catching cheats like
this sends a message to all
those who dope that we will
catch them,” IOC spokesman Mark Adams told The
Associated Press.
Track and field’s governing body, the IAAF, will consider further action against
Ostapchuk, who could face
a two-year ban from the
SUN SPA
Missing Olympians
A U.N.-run radio station
in Congo says four members
from the country’s Olympic
delegation have gone missing in London.
The station reported
Monday that judo athlete
Cedric Mandembo disappeared after the closing
ceremony, and has not been
reachable on his mobile
phone. He lost his match
after 49 seconds.
Authorities tell the radio
station that the Congolese
athlete left the Olympic village with his baggage without saying where he was
going.
The others who have
gone missing are two officials with the boxing and
judo teams, and a national
athletic official.
Already at least seven
Cameroonian athletes have
failed to return home after
the games.
Congo has suffered
decades of dictatorship and
war and remains mired in
poverty despite its mineral
riches.

Falcons’ Ryan ‘feels great’ so far
34816354
The Associated Press
Atlanta coaches are keeping a close eye on how much preseason work quarterback Matt Ryan is doing to make
sure he is rested for the regular season.
CINCINNATI — Serena Williams arrived at the
Western & Southern Open
with an Olympic gold medal
and a chance to win another
tournament she had never
won before.
Really, Serena, you
haven’t won here before.
During a pre-tournament
news conference Monday,
Williams was confused
about whether she had
taken a title in Cincinnati.
“I did win this tournament, didn’t I?” she said.
“Maybe I didn’t. I can’t keep
up. I don’t think I did. OK.
Whoops.”
She has played the Cincinnati tournament three
times, her best showing a
semifinal loss in 2006.
Williams followed-up
her Wimbledon championship in July by overwhelming Maria Sharapova 6-0, 6-1
to win the Olympics singles
title.
The 31-year-old, ranked No.
4 in the world and seeded second at the $5.7 million event,
spent a week training in Paris
before arriving in Cincinnati.
She still was basking in the
glow of winning both the
singles and, with older sister
Venus, the Olympic doubles
championship.
“It was really awesome
to win both medals at the
Olympics,” she said. “I really wanted to win doubles.
I know everyone was like,
‘You haven’t won the singles gold, and that’s the only
thing big career-wise move
that you haven’t won.’ I was
like trying to put that out of
my mind. I went there really

Atlanta catcher Brian McCann throws to first after fielding a bunt during the Braves’ 4-1 loss to the San Diego
Padres on Monday.
Braves
• Continued from Page D1
Stults was dominant early,
allowing only one hit in the
first five innings. That was
nothing new; in his first six
starts with the White Sox
and Padres, he had a 0.75
ERA in the first four innings.
Stults’ problems had come
after the fourth, when he
had a 6.94 ERA.
This time, Stults retained
his edge longer into the
game.
The Braves’ first threat
came in the fourth, when
Heyward reached on first
baseman Alonso’s fielding
error with two outs and
moved to third on Chipper
Jones’ single to left. Freddie
Freeman’s groundout ended
the inning.
Atlanta’s Prado and
Heyward had consecutive
singles with two outs in the
sixth before Jones ended
the inning with a fly ball to
center.
Denorfia led off the second with a double and later
scored on Cameron Maybin’s
sacrifice fly. Denorfia led off
the sixth with a triple and
scored on Alonso’s single.
Stults singled in the sixth
and scored on a single by
Headley, who was thrown
out as he tried to advance to
second. Headley hit his 19th
homer off Chad Durbin in
the seventh.

NEW YORK — Two
weeks ago, Derek Lowe
thought his season might
be over. He was that disgusted with the way he
was pitching.
Now, he is a New York
Yankees reliever.
Lowe signed a contract
with the Yankees on Monday, two weeks after being
designated for assignment
by the Cleveland Indians.
“I was honest with
myself,” said Lowe. “I said,
‘I’m not going to go back
if I can’t figure out what I
have to change.”’
A self-professed careerlong “tinkerer,” the 39year-old Lowe spent his
brief time out of baseball
working on his delivery
in Fort Myers, Fla., getting
back to the place where he
felt he could
contribute.
When he
was released
by Cleveland
on Friday
he had been
talking to
Baltimore,
Philadelphia,
Derek
San FrancisLowe
co and Boston, the team he helped to
win the 2004 World Series
championship.
Lowe started the season
6-1 with a 2.05 ERA, but
finished his stint with the
Indians in a 2-9 slide. By
the end of his time with
Cleveland, his slider was
coming out like “mashed
potatoes.”
Orioles get veteran
Romero from Indians
BALTIMORE — The
Baltimore Orioles have
acquired left-hander J.C.
Romero from the Cleveland Indians for minor
league infielder Carlos
Rojas.
Romero began the season with St. Louis, going
0-0 with a 10.13 ERA in
11 games before being
released May 14. He was
signed to a minor league
contract by the Orioles
and went 1-0 with a 2.51
ERA in 17 appearances
for Triple-A Norfolk. He
was then signed by the
Indians to a minor-league
deal July 21 and pitched in
eight games for Triple-A
Columbus.
Romero’s contract will
be purchased today, and
he will be added to the 25man roster, according to
the Orioles.
He is 34-28 with a 4.15
ERA over a 14-year career.
Konerko passes
post-concussion tests
TORONTO — Chicago
White Sox first baseman
Paul Konerko has cleared
a battery of post-concussion tests and will resume
physical activity today.
Konerko did not accompany the AL Central leaders to Toronto for a series
that opened Monday night.
Konerko was placed on
the 7-day disabled list last
Friday, three days after
being accidentally elbowed
in the head by Kansas
City’s Jarrod Dyson during
a close play.
Manager Robin Ventura
said Konerko checked out
fine after a thorough concussion-related exam at
Rush University Medical
Center in Chicago. Ventura
said Konerko will likely
ride an exercise bike and
play catch today. If he’s
OK, he would move on to
hitting, running and fielding grounders.
Konerko is batting .316
with 18 homers and 54
RBIs. He can return Aug.
17 at Kansas City.

Changes in Georgia Class A
By Lindsey Young
Staff Writer
Welcome to March Madness
— Georgia high school football
Class A style.
While teams in Georgia’s top
five classes go about the traditional way of making the playoffs,
teams in Class A this season will
be using calculators, slide rules,
soothsayers and maybe a rabbit’s
foot or two to keep up with their
playoff hopes.
When the GHSA agreed to
split public and private Class A
schools for the postseason, the
major concern was determining
how teams would qualify for the
playoffs. The final solution is a
system much like the NCAA’s RPI
rating, where teams like Gordon
Lee and Trio — Region 6’s only
public schools among its 14 total
teams — will earn points based
on regular season wins and how
well their opponents fare.
Needless to say, very little will
be decided until the final two
weeks.
“You can’t map it out before
because you won’t really know
until the final weeks where you
stand,” Gordon Lee coach Charlie Wiggins said. “It’s interesting.
Supposedly they are going to put
out an update every week that
will show you where you stand,
but I want to see it first.”
Region champions will automatically qualify. After that, the
point system will determine the
rest of the 16-team public and
private fields and, just like the
NCAA basketball tournament, a
team’s strength of schedule and
its opponent’s record is very
important.
Here are the basics:
■ A team receives 10 points
for a win against a Class A opponent and an additional two points
against a team a class up. Those
bonus points go up two points
per class.
■ A team receives two points
for a loss against a team a class
up and goes up by two points
per class.
■ The final power rating number is the opponents’ strength,
which is the team’s number of
wins divided by 10.
For example, if Trion were to
defeat Class AAAA foe LaFay-
PLAYOFF POTENTIAL
1. Calhoun: The Yellow Jackets have the
offense, led by returning Best of Preps
Offensive Player of the Year and Max Preps
All-American quarterback Taylor Lamb, to put
up video game numbers. They may have to,
though, as only cornerback Donnell Anthony
returns on defense for the defending Class
AA champions.
2. Ridgeland: The Panthers will rely heavily on the power running of senior Darrell
Bridges and the overall playmaking of elite
prospect Vonn Bell as they move up to Class
AAAA. Staying healthy up front is a key for a
revamped set of lines, but the talent is there
to more than hold their own against anyone
on their schedule.
3. Dalton: The Catamounts also move up to
7-AAAA with high hopes after a tumultous
season in which they had to forfeit four games.
A strong offensive line and veteran quarterback Cole Calfee return as do top defenders
Robert Hardaway, Zack Reed and Eder Mora.
4. Ringgold: The Tigers are a favorite to
make the playoffs in new-look Region 5-AAA,
which features only one team — Adairsville
— that won a playoff game a year ago. Ringgold has elite playmakers in quarterback
Slade Dale and sophomore Kile Sholl, but
the defense, which has leading tackler
Dakota Baer returning, has to improve for the
team to make a long run.

1. Ridgeland at Calhoun, Aug. 31:
When the two top teams in northwest Georgia over the past five
years get together, it’s worth watching. Pay particular attention when
the Calhoun offense and Ridgeland
defense are on the field as the reigning overall Best of Preps player,
Ridgeland safety Vonn Bell, and the
BOP top offensive player, Calhoun
quarterback Taylor Lamb, square off.
2. Northwest Whitfield at Dalton,
Oct. 12: This game was marked the
minute the GHSA reclassiciation

1. Vonn Bell, Ridgeland: The returning Best
of Preps Player of the Year is one of the top
five recruits in Georgia and among the top
half-dozen safety prospects in the country
according to scouting services. He’s being
recruited for his hard-hitting, ball-hawking
defense, but he’s just as dangerous offensively and on special teams.
2. Taylor Lamb, Calhoun: The returning
Class AA all-state quarterback and Best of
Preps Offensive Player of the Year set area
records for yards and touchdowns in leading
the Yellow Jackets to the Class AA championship. Though his top three leading receivers graduated, Lamb says the offense won’t
miss a beat this season.
3. Tyshaun Clemmons, Gordon Central:
The 6-foot, 200-pounder is a physical, fast
receiver who has a half-dozen college offers.
With quarterback M.J. Reynolds and tight
end Dre Prather returning, Clemmons should
be a part of a strong offense as they Warriors
move up to Class AAA.
4. Josh Barnes, Calhoun: The 6-foot-3
receiver will be Taylor Lamb’s top target
this season in the powerful Yellow Jackets’
offense and combines his good size with 4.6
speed and great hands.
5. Jacob Mays, North Murray: The 6-foot-3,
215-pounder has gone from relative unknown
to getting college looks from the likes of Tennessee, UTC and Georgia Southern after
standing out at several summer camps. The
new Mountaineer coaching staff will feature
him prominently at running back, though his
future in college likely lies in the secondary.
McClain chooses Yale for baseball
McClain currently carries a 3.93
gpa and scored a 32 out of a possible
36 points on the ACT.
“He’s really raw but he has the
frame [6-foot-4, 205], and he’s a
hard worker,” Ooltewah coach Brian
Hitchcox said. “He has been throwing
about 87 [mph] but I see that going
up. He’s one of those who could be
a mid-90s guy.”
McClain had a 7-1 record with a
2.80 era for Ooltewah last spring and
during the summer he played for the
Chattanooga Cyclones.
“Jackson has made some improvements, especially since he started
working with David Mead. David is
the same type build and he helped
Jackson with some mechanical
issues,” Hitchcox said.
Staff reports
Though he may be preparing
for his senior football season at the
moment, Ooltewah’s Jackson McClain
knows his future is in baseball.
The senior left-handed pitcher,
a 6-foot-4, 205-pounder, recently
committed to Yale University to play
baseball.
“I had been traveling to all the
Ivy league schools since the winter
and the last camp I went to was in
Palo Alto, Calif. at Stanford’s all-star
camp,” McClain said.
Yale was among those with representatives watching the games.
“It was about a month-long process before they called on Aug. 1
and told me what it takes to be a
pitcher at an Ivy League school and
then made the offer over the phone
for the first pitching slot class of Georgia softball rankings

Title games staying put
By Maurice Patton
The Tennessean
MURFREESBORO,
Tenn. — After voting last
month to extend the current
football playoff format for
four more seasons, the Tennessee Secondary School
Athletic Association’s Board
of Control voted Monday
to keep the championship
games in their current site.
Tennessee Tech’s Tucker
Stadium will continue to
host the BlueCross Bowl
title games through 2016.
The contract with the
Cookeville-Putnam County
Chamber of Commerce was
scheduled to expire following this season’s playoffs.
“It’s a good position to
be in, to know you’re wanted and to feel comfortable
where you’re going,” TSSAA
executive director Bernard
Childress said of the decision to stay in Cookeville.
There was a 17-member
contingent representing
Cookeville and Tennessee
Tech at the meeting. Cookeville has hosted the football
championships since 2009.
“The TSSAA told us they
needed to get through clas-

discussing an extension],”
said George Halford, president/CEO of the CookevillePutnam County Chamber of
Commerce. “But we were
nearing the end of the contract and we wanted to get
this done before it ended.”
The board also voted
Monday to keep the Division I boys and girls basketball championships and
Spring Fling in Murfreesboro through 2017.
“This is extremely impor-
tant to Rutherford County,”
said Mona Herring, who is
set to retire in April as vice
president of the Rutherford
County Convention and Visitors Bureau. “To know we
have these for the next four
years allows us to do some
planning for the future, some
preparation.
“It’s gratifying to me to
know it’s in place for another
four years and that my successor doesn’t have to worry
about preparing a bid.”
The board also voted
to look for a venue other
than Chattanooga for the
girls’ soccer championships
which have been held here
since 1997. After this season
the soccer tournament will
move elsewhere, ending a
long relationship between
the Greater Chattanooga
Sports Committee and the
TSSAA. The Spring Fling
got its start in Chattanooga
and the state wrestling tournament was held at Maclellan Gym or McKenzie Arena
for years.

basketball contract.
“You don’t want the
appearance that we’re giving any one area of the state
a monopoly,” Chauncy said.
“Not that they don’t do a
good job, but I just think
there may be other venues
we should look at.”
Spring Fling was first
held in Murfreesboro in
2006. The girls basketball
tournament has been at
MTSU’s Murphy Center
since 1975. The boys tournament has been there since
1989.
“It’s huge for us,” Childress said. “Our goal all
along was to get in a situation we felt was a ‘win/win’
for both partners. If we’re in
that situation, it only makes
sense to give those cities an
opportunity to extend the
contracts.”

Phillips said. “When I sat
down with Coach Phillips
we visited for a while and
then he said, ‘I really like
you, and that’s why I want
to offer you a scholarship.’ He said they were
going to close the book
on [recruiting] quarterbacks and that I was the
guy they wanted. I told
him this is where I want
to be.”
Phillips threw for 1,895
yards and 21 TDs with
just four interceptions
while completing 71 percent of his passes. He is
the first Signal Mountain
football player to commit
to a Southeastern Conference school and will be
the first Chattanooga area
quarterback to join a SEC
program since McCallie’s
B.J. Coleman went to Tennessee 2007.

schools that would still

Price said.
“I am as proud as a father of
what he has accomplished
to date. Kentucky is getting
a young man that’s going to
excel on the football field,
in the classroom and also
in the school.”
Price believes that a
combination of things
would make Phillips a
dream recruit.
“Beyond his personal
attributes — character
and leadership skills — he
has the size (6-foot-3, 225)
and the arm strength. The
kid has great leadership
skills. He has confidence.
He is a much better quarterback when compared
to last year and he’s only
been in the system a little
more than a year — 10
games last season — as a
quarterback.”

Fugate feeling
better at LB
Staff Writer
E L I Z A B E T H TO N,
Tenn. — Tennessee football coach Derek Dooley
says the Volunteers have
contingency plans in case
one of their starting inside
linebackers goes down.
Former fullback Channing
Fugate is trying to become
one of those alternatives.
The junior, a six-game
starter at fullback the past
two seasons, believes he’s
settled in at linebacker after
an offseason switch, and his
six-tackle, one-sack performance in Saturday’s scrimmage perhaps showed some
signs of progress.
“I’m a lot more settled in
than in the spring,” Fugate
said Monday morning after
Tennessee finished the first
of two practices at Milligan
College. “I was just getting
used to it, and now I’ve been
studying the playbook, been
out here practicing and I’m
just a lot more used to it.
“It felt pretty good to go
out there and make some
plays. There’s a lot of things
to work on.”
After losing his starting
position on offense to Ben
Bartholomew last season,
Fugate felt he could benefit
from moving to defense.
He’s back up to 235 pounds
after dropping nearly 30
to prepare himself for his
move. It’s all new for Fugate,
who played safety at Breathitt County High School
in Kentucky when he wasn’t
rushing for more than 5,000
yards in three seasons.
“In high school, I always
kind of wanted to be a linebacker,” he said, “but they
moved me to safety as one of
the fastest guys on the team.
Now that’s not the case. I’m
inside, and I like it.”
Fugate still has work to
do to make the Vols like him
more as a backup at what
might be the thinnest position on the team. Redshirt
freshman Christian Harris
continues to rehab his torn
ACL on the side during practices, but freshman Kenny
Bynum is likely headed for a
redshirt after having his torn
meniscus repaired over the
weekend. Most of the other
options are too small to hold
up inside.
With better options at
outside linebacker in Willie
Bohannon and Jordan Williams, Tennessee would likely slide Curt Maggitt inside
if anything happened to Herman Lathers or A.J. Johnson,
but Dooley declined to say
that Monday.
“Channing’s doing good,
but we’re really short there,”
the coach said. “We need to
get Christian Harris back, so
it’s a concern. We’ve got a lot
of contingency plans, but right
now, it’s Herman and A.J. We
do that at every position.”
out, Maurice Couch and
Darrington Sentimore were
at defensive end with 6-foot6, 377-pound junior-college
transfer Daniel McCullers
at nose tackle for the firstteam defense.
Couch has earned praise
for what he’s done in training camp, so his move to
end suggests McCullers is
making strides in transitioning to this level. Daniel
Hood went back from end
to nose tackle with the second-team defense.
“Again, organizational
chart,” Dooley said. “This
is the week where we keep
moving guys around for a
lot of reasons, either evaluation purposes or contingency plans. We’ll see how
[Couch] does there.
“I think he’s got a body
type that has a lot of flexibility. He’s not a tall guy, so
he doesn’t have the range,
but he’s got a lot of good
quick-twitch and power. It
allows him to play a lot of
positions.”
Off-day fun
Tennessee didn’t practice Sunday following Saturday’s scrimmage in which
the Vols’ ground game performed “very efficiently,”
Dooley said. The coach
again noted the administrative mistakes and penalties
as primary corrections and
explained that his younger
players needed to “elevate
their play.” After meetings,
the team walked through to
correct those mistakes on
Sunday.
Then the Vols had some
fun on their first off day of
training camp.
“The coaches have been
doing a good job of letting
us relax at night during
the meetings,” right tackle
Ja’Wuan James said. “We’ve
been doing talent shows;
last night we had karaoke,
and the night before we
played ‘Name That Vol,’ like
some trivia and stuff.”
Status updates
Dooley said the Vols gave
star receiver Justin Hunter a ‘maintenance day’ as
sort of a precaution. After
working mostly on the side
in the morning, the junior
practiced fully during the
evening. Like linebacker
Herman Lathers, Tennessee
is managing one of its offensive stars carefully. … Tight
end Mychal Rivera (knee
sprain) and receiver Cordarrelle Patterson (shoulder sprain) wore red noncontact jerseys during both
practices, and linebacker
Curt Maggitt and safety
LaDarrell McNeil wore red

Georgia redshirt sophomore tailback Ken Malcome played in six games last season
and earned two starts.
Malcome matures
By David Paschall
Staff Writer
Although Georgia football
fans are eager to watch freshman tailbacks Keith Marshall
and Todd Gurley in the Sept.
1 opener against Buffalo, they
may like what they see in
Ken Malcome.
The redshirt sophomore
started two of the final three
games last season and beat
out Isaiah Crowell in getting
the first carries during April’s
G-Day game, but he has not
received much attention in
preseason camp. Malcome
had an impressive 32 yards
on five carries during last
Wednesday’s scrimmage, but
it was overshadowed by Gurley’s 58 yards on six rushes.
“Ken is doing very well,”
Bulldogs coach Mark Richt
said after Monday’s two-hour
practice in helmets, shoulder
pads and shorts. “He’s being
diligent in making sure he
understands every little thing
about his job.”
Malcome had a very interesting 2011 season, quitting
the team in September before
being allowed to return the
next day. The 6-foot, 226pounder from Decatur, Ga.,
played in just one of the first
nine games, but he improved
enough to get in the last five
games and earned starts at

Mocs seek stable secondary
By John Frierson
Staff Writer
For more than a week University of Tennessee at Chattanooga cornerback Chaz
Moore was limited only to
running his mouth because
of a bad hamstring. He’s a
talker, one with an unusual
Memphis twang, and that
was about all he could do in
practice.
The speedy and fearless
junior, who plays bigger
than his 5-foot-10, 170-pound
frame, started four games
in 2011 and played plenty in
the Mocs’ nickel and dime
packages. During the Mocs’
Monday morning practice at
Scrappy Moore Field, Moore
was finally on the field in full
pads and made his share of
plays.
“The hamstring’s getting
looser day by day, and today
was the first day of me being
live,” Moore said. “It felt good
out there today.”
Redshirt freshman
Sema’je Kendall had been
working in Moore’s place on
the first-team defense. Kendall practiced at safety last
season before being moved
to cornerback during spring
practice.
The 6-foot, 175-pound
Kendall played well enough
at corner during the first
10 days of practice that he
earned the chance to keep
playing with the starters following Moore’s return. That
meant returning him to free
safety, ahead of Zach McCarter on the depth chart.
“Sema’je has been playing
so well — he’s a ballplayer
and he’s been playing so well
— and we’re trying to find
ways to get the best 11 on the
field, however it occurs,” Mocs
coach Russ Huesman said.
“Right now I think Sema’je’s
among the best 11. For him
to play behind Chaz doesn’t
make a whole lot of sense.”
Kendall said moving back
to safety didn’t require much
of an adjustment, and like
former Moc defensive back
Chris Lewis-Harris last season, Kendall could see action
at both positions during the
season. Going through his
second preseason hasn’t been
quite as physically demanding as last August, Kendall
said, but mentally the challenges are still there.
“Physically last year I was
sore, and it was hard to just
walk down to the practice
field,” he said. “Now I can
run around, but I’m learning
so much that it’s almost like
I’m catching brain cramps.”
Safety Dean Haynes, the
North Carolina State transfer
who has been out with a foot
injury since the third practice, is still in a cast. Haynes
is expected to challenge for
the starting job when he
returns, but that may not be
until September.
tackled whenever I cross the
50,” he said.
Wideout Tommy Hudson
will replace Joel Bradford
as the Mocs’ punt returner,
Huesman said, with Moore
possibly serving as the backup. UTC ranked No. 116, out
of 120, in punt returns last
season with an average of
3.08 yards a return.
Huesman said the Mocs
need to do better, but not
at the expense of making a
mistake and giving the ball
away.
Extra points
Defensive tackle Derrick
Lott (shoulder) left the field
near the end of practice and
did not return. ... Cornerback
Will Johnson (head) returned
after missing a few days with
concussion-like symptoms,
while fullback Taharin Tyson
and safety Keith Mayes are
still sidelined. ... The Mocs
will conduct their last twoa-day today.

North Carolina is investigating how what appears
to be a transcript for former football star Julius
Peppers surfaced on the
university’s website.
In a statement Monday, the school said it has
removed the link and that
it couldn’t discuss confidential student information covered by federal
privacy laws. The school
didn’t confirm the authenticity of the partial grade
summary, which lists Peppers’ name at the top.
“Student academic
records should never be
accessible to the public, and
the university is investigating reports of what appears
to be a former student transcript on the university’s
website,” the school said.
The link, which surfaced
late Sunday, showed Peppers received some of his
highest grades in classes
in the Department of African and Afro-American
Studies (AFAM). A school
investigation has since
found fraud and poor oversight in 54 AFAM classes
between summer 2007 and
summer 2011, with football
players making up more
than a third of the enrollments and student-athletes
making up 58 percent of
the overall enrollments in
those suspect classes.
Nine of the 10 classes
in which Peppers earned
a B-plus, B or B-minus that
could’ve helped ensure
his eligibility came in the
AFAM department, according to the possible transcript. Three were listed as
independent study classes,
another problem area cited
in the school’s probe for a
lack of supervision of work
performed by students.
The possible transcript
lists a 1.824 GPA, beginning with classes during
the summer of 1998 and
finishing in the fall of 2001
during Peppers’ last year
on the football field for the
Tar Heels under first-year
coach John Bunting. The
link lacked grades for five
classes in summer and fall
2001 terms.
If authentic, the transcript would raise the
possibility that the AFAM
troubles go back much
further than the four-year
focus of the investigation.
Carl Carey, Peppers’
agent, didn’t immediately
return a call for comment
Monday afternoon.
The link surfaced a day
after The News & Observer
of Raleigh published a story
citing what the university
called a “test transcript” used
to help students and advisers
with a computer program for
determining courses needed
for graduation. School officials told the newspaper it
wasn’t a real transcript for
an actual student.
But the “test transcript”
— which also dates to 2001
— mirrors the possible Peppers transcript and matches
34 of 36 classes, the newspaper reported Monday.
Peppers also played
two seasons for the men’s
basketball team under Bill
Guthridge and Matt Doherty,
serving as a reserve on the
team that reached the Final
Four in 2000.
Peppers was the No. 2
pick of the Carolina Panthers in the 2002 NFL
Draft and spent eight seasons there. He signed with
the Chicago Bears in 2010
and is a six-time Pro Bowl
defensive end.
The school’s investigation of the AFAM department began as an offshoot
of the NCAA investigation
into improper benefits and
academic misconduct in
the football program.

against Buffalo and just one
stop in four other games. He
never played against Alabama and Kentucky.
Even in a new defense,
Gordon’s position and challenge remain the same.
“Eric’s doing good,”
coach Derek Dooley said.
“He’s playing that “Star,” the
nick spot. He’s on all of our
special teams.
“He’s the same guy: he’s
active, he’s disruptive, he
makes plays and of course
his challenge is consistency.”
Tennessee’s secondary
is looking for reliable playmakers. Corner Prentiss
Waggner and safety Brian
Randolph have shown that
ability in the past, and corner Marsalis Teague showed
it in Saturday’s scrimmage.
The senior was burned on
deep passes on more than
one or two occasions last
season, but he broke up four
passes in the Vols’ scrimmage.
“Marsalis had a really
good scrimmage,” Dooley
said “It was probably his
best scrimmage since he’s
been here, and I’m proud
of him for that. He started making some plays in
the deep part of the field
that historically he hadn’t
made.
“He’s doing it because
he’s playing with a little
more confidence and he’s
trusting his technique. It
showed on the field, and I
hope it continues. We need
him to.”
The Vols also need Gordon, but they need the consistent one who uses his
aggressive tendencies in
the right spots. Sunseri’s
defense is built to stop the
run and play aggressively
in the secondary. Gordon
believes his skills match
those aspects, and Dooley
said the defense should help
him “create disruptiveness”
against offenses.
“I love that physical style
of play,” Gordon said. “The
“Star” position is a very versatile position. You’re filling
in [against] the run, covering a few guys — I think it
fits me perfectly.
“They pretty much want
me to know when to take
the risks. That’s the biggest
thing, knowing when I can
do stuff, when I can jump
routes. Other than that, they
want me aligned right and
following the scheme.”

What is the difference between
a modern and traditional
brushwork style?
The modern style is a spontaneous
brushstroke style. That started in
the early Ming dynasty by scholars.
(This older) style primarily was done
for emperors. It traces way back in
the Tang dynasty. That’s where all the
rich color comes from. They discovered the most beautiful, rich colors.
At the same time, they came up with
the most detailed, lavish paintings. It’s
almost like European, like the Rococo
era. There’s not much spontaneous
brushstroke. Everything is done to
extreme detail.

Tabitha Fowler’s first stage
was the sanctuary of a small
church in Rossville, Ga., but with
the energy she brought to the
performance, it might as well
have been the Gershwin Theatre
on Broadway.
Decked out in a red hat, red
boa and glitzy costume jewelry, then-3-year-old Tabitha
squeezed every ounce of celebrity out of her performance of
the song “Santa Baby.” “She took
off with it and walked through
the crowd and walked across the
stage,” said her mother, Becky
Fowler. “Everyone said she was a
ham, and she’s been a ham ever
since.”
After five years appearing
in other church productions,
including a turn as the baby
Jesus in a Nativity play, Tabitha
caught the eye of Ridgeland
High School choral and drama
director Dr. Anthony Goss.
As part of a countywide casting call for participants in a
production of the musical “Willy
Wonka,” Goss called Tabitha
back for the role of Matilda, a
schoolmate of lead character
Charlie. Having just seen the
film, however, she opted instead
to wear the yellow overalls
and crazy up do of an oompa
loompa.
A self-described drama queen
with eyes on eventually becoming a Broadway star, Tabitha said
she wanted to be one of Wonka’s
diminutive assistants because of
the requirement to sing, dance
and wear garish costumes.
By the time she had finished
seven sold-out performances in
the high school’s 300-seat theater, she said, she was hooked.
“I don’t belong many places,
and people tell me that all the
time, but being onstage is the
one place I belong,” she said.
“I just love the thrill of being
onstage and getting to perform
in front of an audience.
“It makes me feel happy.
You’re putting a smile on someone’s face, and that can be the
hardest thing to do.”
Now 12, Tabitha has been
in about a dozen shows with
numerous local production

scary notes from people
who had suffered severe
consequences from bites.
One was a horror story
where a parent waded
around in medical purgatory for six years before
even getting a diagnosis.
In particular, I think I
should share a letter from
Mack McCord, who got
so sick after a bite that he
says, “I texted friends and
relatives and told them I
was going to die. I don’t
even remember sending the text messages. I
couldn’t even get out of
bed.”
Strangely, these severe
symptoms don’t always
appear for two to three
years when Lyme disease
is in full bloom. It seems
to depend on how well the
early antibiotics work at
the beginning of the disease cycle. But even if they
work well, you may not
have some of these symptoms for a couple of years.
Mack is adamant that
“after any tick bite you
should see your doctor
immediately to be started
on a 30-day treatment of
doxycycline.” He says,
“This is the only antibiotic that can counter the
effects of a tick-borne
virus.”
Since it often takes a
while for Lyme disease to
manifest, it is important
to know what the symptoms are. The first one is
a bull’s-eye ring around
the site of the tick bite.
But the ring does not
always appear.

Look at the South hand
in the diagram. West, on his
left, opens one spade, North
overcalls two diamonds,
and East passes. What
should South do?
When you know partner
has a long minor and some
points, you should always
wonder about three notrump. But it is nice to have
some fit for partner’s suit.
This hand has the high-card
power for game. The only
minus is the singleton
diamond.
South should jump to
three no-trump.
Here, that game makes
easily. West would lead the
spade six, fourth-highest
from his longest and strongest. South will win with
his jack, play off dummy’s
heart winners, cash his four
club tricks, and take the
heart ace, bringing everyone down to five cards.
Then a diamond toward
dummy’s king produces an
overtrick. If West wins and
leads the spade king, declarer just ducks the trick.
At the table, South
advanced with two hearts.
If this were forcing by partnership agreement, it would
have been acceptable. But
North believed it was nonforcing and passed. Yes,
that contract made with an
overtrick, but a game bonus
had been missed.
If three no-trump is a
possible bid, make it.

FAITH
Don’t hide commitment to Christ
Q: My family doesn’t believe in God and is very
opposed to religion. Well, last month I met some
Christians at my school and I ended up giving my
life to Jesus. I’m afraid to tell my parents because I
know they’ll be upset. What should I do? — S.S.
A: I’m grateful you have
given your life to Jesus
Christ, in
spite of your
background.
I’m thankful, too, for
your friends,
who cared
Billy Graham e n o u g h
about you to share Christ
with you. God can break
through every barrier
people raise against him
because he is stronger than
all who oppose him. The
most important thing I can
tell you is that God knows
all about the pressures you’ll
be facing, and he loves you
and has promised to be with
you every moment of the
day. Even if your family forbids you to associate with
other believers, never forget
that Jesus will be with you.
The Bible’s promise is true
(and I urge you to memorize
it): “If God is for us, who can
be against us?... (nothing)
will be able to separate us
from the love of God that
is in Christ Jesus our Lord”
(Romans 8:31,39). Don’t conceal your commitment from
your parents; in time they’ll
find out anyway. But pray
that they won’t think you are
rejecting them. Pray instead
that God will make them
open to what’s happening
in your life. Ask your friends
to pray for them also.
Pray, too, for yourself,
that even if they resist your
commitment, they’ll see
that Christ has made a difference in your life. Often
our strongest witness is the
evidence of a changed life.
Jesus said, “You are the light
of the world. ... Let your light
shine before men, that they
may see your good deeds
and praise your Father in
heaven” (Matthew 5:14,16).

Picks for the top Emmy races

■ Kathryn Joosten,
“Desperate Housewives”

Jackie”
■ Kristen Wiig, “Saturday
Night Live”
Should win: Wiig
Will win: Joosten
Analysis: Sentiment figures here. Lung cancer claimed

contenders, and four-time
nominee Wiig just wrapped
her tenure on “SNL,” but we

By Glenn Whipp
Los Angeles Times
LOS ANGELES — The
Emmys are so predictable ... so
boring ... so uninspired... unless,
of course, voters are rewarding
your favorite show yet again,
and then it’s wildly on-target, a
well-deserved honor bestowed
by perceptive and discriminating industry authorities. Expect
a great many predictable (and
well-deserved) honors come
September.
Here’s an early set of predictions to start the conversation:
DRAMA SERIES
■ “Boardwalk Empire”
(HBO)
■ “Breaking Bad” (AMC)
■ “Downton Abbey” (PBS)
■ “Game of Thrones” (HBO)
■ “Homeland” (Showtime)
■ “Mad Men” (AMC)
Should win: “Mad Men”
Will win: “Mad Men”
Analysis: “Mad Men” won
the series Emmy for its first
four seasons and, arguably,
just completed its finest year.
A fifth Emmy here would be
unprecedented — and a proper
reward. But AMC stable mate
“Breaking Bad” poses a serious threat to its chances, particularly since it’s currently
airing an ambitious string of
new episodes, just as votes are
being cast.
LEAD ACTOR, DRAMA
■ Hugh Bonneville,
“Downton Abbey”
■ Steve Buscemi,
“Boardwalk Empire”
■ Bryan Cranston,
“Breaking Bad”
■ Michael C. Hall, “Dexter”
■ Jon Hamm, “Mad Men”
■ Damian Lewis,
“Homeland”
Should win: Cranston
Will win: Cranston
Analysis: After sitting out
last year’s race, Cranston faces
little competition for a fourth
Emmy, which would tie him
with Dennis Franz for most
wins in the category. If someone would only give the man a
role in a decent movie ...
LEAD ACTRESS, DRAMA
■ Kathy Bates, “Harry’s
Law”
■ Glenn Close, “Damages”
■ Claire Danes, “Homeland”
■ Michelle Dockery,
“Downton Abbey”
■ Julianna Margulies, “The
■ Good Wife”
■ Elisabeth Moss, “Mad
Men”
Should win: Danes
Will win: Danes
Analysis: Close’s camp
can’t run on the “this-is-heryear” platform that “Albert
Nobbs” campaigners used in
the last Oscar race since Close
has already won here twice.
Margulies won last year, but
her show’s exclusion for series
doesn’t bode well. Danes wins,
and it’s a slam-dunk.
COMEDY SERIES
■ “30 Rock” (NBC)
■ “The Big Bang Theory”
(CBS)
■ “Curb Your Enthusiasm”
(HBO)
“Girls” (HBO)
■ “Modern Family” (ABC)
■ “Veep” (HBO)
McClatchy Newspapers
Kevin Costner is nominated for Best Actor in a Miniseries or Movie for his role in “Hatfields & McCoys,’’ which
is a nominee for Best Miniseries or Movie.
Should win: “Girls”
Will win: “Modern Family”
Analysis: “Modern Family”
has been an Emmy juggernaut
in its two eligible seasons. The
legal battle between the cast
and 20th Century Fox would
have needed to venture into
“Hatfields & McCoys” territory for the show to lose here.
LEAD ACTOR, COMEDY
■ Louis C.K., “Louie”
■ Alec Baldwin, “30 Rock”
■ Don Cheadle, “House of
Lies”
■ Jon Cryer, “Two and a
Half Men”
■ Larry David, “Curb Your
Enthusiasm”
■ Jim Parsons, “The Big
Bang Theory”
Should win: Louis C.K.
Will win: Louis C.K.
Analysis: C.K. received
seven Emmy nominations
— three (writing, directing,
acting) for his FX series and
four for his Beacon Theatre
stand-up special. So, yes, this
is his moment. Plus, even with
all the love, “Louie” somehow
failed to earn a series nod, an
oversight that brought even
more attention to C.K. via
assorted cries of outrage and
puzzlement. Admittedly, C.K.’s
skewed humor isn’t going to
play to everyone in the room,
but a Parsons three-peat seems
both unlikely and kind of
wrong. Unless, of course, that’s
your favorite show and then it’s
perfectly acceptable.
LEAD ACTRESS, COMEDY
■ Zooey Deschanel, “New
Girl”
■ Lena Dunham, “Girls”
■ Edie Falco, “Nurse
Jackie”
■ Tina Fey, “30 Rock”
■ Julia Louis-Dreyfus,
“Veep”
■ Melissa McCarthy, “Mike
& Molly”
■ Amy Poehler, “Parks and
Recreation”
Should win: Poehler
Will win: Louis-Dreyfus
EMMYS ON TV
The 64th Primetime
Emmy Awards will be
held Sept. 23 at the
Nokia Theatre in Los
Angeles and telecast live
at 8 p.m. EDT on ABC.
The show will be hosted
by Jimmy Kimmel.
Analysis: A tie takes the
recent expansion of nominees
a step further, making for a jampacked group of seven. With
this many options, we’ll steer
toward the safety of LouisDreyfus, a 12-time nominee
and two-time winner. If she
owns an Emmy for “The New
Adventures of Old Christine,”
she could certainly take one
for the sharply observed satire
of “Veep.”
SUPPORTING ACTOR, COMEDY
■ Ty Burrell, “Modern
Family”
■ Jesse Tyler Ferguson,
“Modern Family”
■ Max Greenfield, “New
Girl”
■ Bill Hader, “Saturday
Night Live”
■ Ed O’Neill, “Modern
Family”
■ Eric Stonestreet, “Modern
Family”
Should win: Burrell
Will win: Ferguson
Analysis: We like both
Hader and Greenfield, but
we’re guessing this category
will again go to one of the
“Modern Family” quartet.
Stonestreet won for the first
season; Burrell took it last year,
and we’d give it to him again
for the way he has refined and
enlivened the Clueless Dad
TV archetype. But the game
of musical chairs will probably
mean an Emmy for O’Neill or
Ferguson. Flip a coin.
SUPPORTING ACTRESS,
COMEDY
■ Mayim Bialik, “The Big
Bang Theory”
■ Julie Bowen, “Modern
MINISERIES OR MOVIE
■ “American Horror Story”
(FX)
■ “Game Change” (HBO)
■ “Hatfields & McCoys”
(History)
■ “Hemingway & Gellhorn”
(HBO)
■ “Luther” (BBC America)
■ “Sherlock: A Scandal in
Belgravia” (PBS)
Should win: “Sherlock: A
Scandal in Belgravia”
Will win: “Game Change”
Analysis: “Horror Story”
made headlines with its 17
nominations, but its freaky latex
ghost sex might not be the universal turn-on that such numbers imply. “Game Change” fits
the profile of past winners, and
its election-year setting might
boost its relevancy in voters’
minds. “Sherlock” stands as the
category’s sleeper. As the good
detective would remind you,
“when you have eliminated the
impossible, whatever remains,
however improbable, becomes
the truth.” Or, the Emmy winner.
LEAD ACTRESS, MINISERIES
OR MOVIE
■ Connie Britton, “American
Horror Story”
■ Ashley Judd, “Missing”
■ Nicole Kidman,
“Hemingway & Gellhorn”
■ Julianne Moore, “Game
Change”
■ Emma Thompson, “The
Song of Lunch”
Should win: Moore
Will win: Moore
Analysis: Moore made
even die-hard liberals feel
a measure of empathy for
Sarah Palin. Forget an Emmy.
The woman deserves the
Nobel Peace Prize.
LEAD ACTOR, MINISERIES
OR MOVIE
■ Kevin Costner, “Hatfields
& McCoys”
■ Benedict Cumberbatch,
■ “Sherlock: A Scandal in
Belgravia“
■ Idris Elba, “Luther”
■ Woody Harrelson, “Game
Change”
■ Clive Owen, “Hemingway
& Gellhorn”
■ Bill Paxton, “Hatfields &
McCoys”
Should win: Harrelson
Will win: Owen
Analysis: If voters decide a
“Game Change” sweep might
be a bit much, look for them
to still hew to the party line
(HBO! HBO!) and recognize
Owen’s proud Papa.

Exemptions, rules for Do Not Call registry
Akron Beacon Journal
A reader’s inquiry prompted a new look at a familiar
subject: unsolicited telephone calls from marketers,
researchers and politicians.
The caller believed she
had received annoying calls
too late in the evening.
There are Do Not Call
rules but there is also confusion because of many exemptions.

and polls, is difficult, said

of the Center for Marketing Opinion and Research in
Akron, Ohio. “Some people
Weighing options
Jason Sudeikis might bolt ‘Saturday Night Live’
“
By Rebecca Keegan
Los Angeles Times
LOS ANGELES — Just
weeks before the national
political conventions get
underway, a crucial figure
has yet to commit to the
presidential race.
Jason Sudeikis, who plays
“Saturday Night Live’s” Mitt
Romney as a cheerfully button-down, out-of-touch,
Ward Cleaver-like figure,
said he has not yet decided whether to return to
the sketch show when it
resumes this fall.
After nine years at
“SNL” — the last few
as the show’s most
valuable straight man
— Sudeikis has been
s p e n d i n g re ce n t
months focusing on
his movie career. He
plays the long-suffering aide to Will Ferrell’s blundering congressman in the political spoof “The Campaign,” which opened
Friday, and is currently
filming the road comedy
“We’re the Millers” opposite Jennifer Aniston.
Stepping away from
“SNL” entirely would be a
risky decision for Sudeikis
— for every alumnus of
the show who successfully
transitions to film or other
TV work, there’s a cautionary tale who flames out.
And playing an election
year contender on “SNL” is
a high-profile, potentially
career-boosting gig — Tina
Fey won an Emmy Award for
her portrayal of Sarah Palin
during the 2008 race.
A chance to ride the zeitgeist, however, doesn’t seem
to be enough of an enticement for the 36-year-old
actor to stick around. Sudeikis said he wants to take on
more responsibility at “SNL”
but maintain the flexibility
to pursue other projects, a
tricky balance to strike on a

“I’d like the opportunity
to use creative muscles that
... haven’t been asked of me
for the first nine years that
I’ve worked there,” Sudeikis
said in a recent reflective
interview at a Sunset Strip
hotel. “It could be some sort
of title change. The least of
the concerns is anything

Assess
and lessen •
your risk A
for disease
Continued from Page E1
The Dallas Morning News
Want to know your likelihood of getting major diseases that strike millions in
the United States?
The Siteman Cancer Center’s website, Your Disease
Risk (www.yourdiseaserisk.
wustl.edu), has quizzes you
can take on stroke, heart disease, 12 types of cancer, diabetes and osteoporosis.
The center is at BarnesJewish Hospital and the Washington University School of
Medicine in St. Louis. The
site, developed by the Harvard
Center for Cancer Prevention,
expanded to include other diseases, and then moved to the
Siteman Cancer Center.
After you answer personal
health history and lifestyle
questions at the secure site,
your general risk factor is
calculated.
While the assessments
don’t substitute for seeing a
physician, they do identify
factors within your control
and areas for improvement.
You start with calligraphy. To be able to
execute a beautiful line, you
need to know how to use a
brush, how to freely maneuver the brush. In China, the
painting and the calligraphy
are hand in hand. The calligraphy is the bone of a good
painting.
How does learning
Chinese brushwork
help artists working in
Western styles?
Basically ... it helps them
be more controlled
of their line work. Going
through the process will
help them mentally be more
focused.
What fulfillment
does painting give
you?
I’m happy that myself,
my daughter and my
son-in-law are all artists.
We’re having our own critique all the time. This is my
ideal kind of life.
What are your feelings on how art has
changed over the years?
I have no prejudice
toward modern art. As
long as it’s from the bottom
of (the artist’s) heart and it’s
truthful to what they really
want to express, that’s the

pair of gleaming white Nikes,

actress Olivia Wilde. His
face has a splash of freckles,
normally hidden by makeup
when he’s on screen.
Sudeikis’ Romney drops
phrases like “jiminy cricket” and “whoopsie daisies,”
and shamelessly panders to
groups as diverse as pet own-
only thing that’s important. For me, the art has no
nationality. As long as it’s
good and truthful.
What is the most
important thing you
learned from Pu Ru about
teaching?
Pu Ru never taught
how to paint a painting. He taught that the No.
1 discipline is to be honest. Start with the classical
books. Practice calligraphy.
Those are the three major
points I always carry with
me. Two important things
about making a good piece
of art, according to Pu Ru:
First, it has to come from
the inside. The inside cannot be empty. You have to
be absorbing all kinds of
philosophy, classical books,
literature, music, so you
can have a full bucket to
pull out.
What is in your bucket?
I started as a figure
painter. Then I started
to see enough people and
started getting into flowers. Now my vision is much
wider. I am inspired by the
landscapes, especially in the
morning with the fog. In a
city like this, I can expand
my vision. I’d like to express
the mystery of the landscapes.
What are your favorite parts of the Chattanooga landscape?

ers, Dungeons & Dragons
fans and piercing enthusiasts. Nailing down the character has been challenging,
he said, because Romney has
revealed so little of himself
on the campaign trail.
Unlike “SNL’s” gifted
President Clinton impressionist, Darrell Hammond,
Sudeikis doesn’t devote hours
of study to create an uncanny
resemblance but relies more
on an instinctual sense to
create a character. “I usually
just watch something for a
couple minutes,” he said.
“I’ll be more inclined to read
something about someone
and figure out what external
influences make him who he
is or what he is than poring
over tapes.
“It’s a weird time in the
world. You say one wrong
thing and lose points. We’re
probably just watching a guy
who’s scared to screw up. So
my Mitt is a little square, a
little boring, a little disconnected from the human
experience.”
A bipartisan skewering
of the modern electoral process, “The Campaign” sees
Sudeikis as Mitch, the most
high-functioning clown in a
political circus. It also stars
Ferrell as Cam Brady, an airhead Democratic congressman from North Carolina
who is running for reelection against bumpkinlike
Republican big-money pawn
Marty Huggins (Zach Galifianakis).
“I think ‘The Campaign’ is
right on time,” Sudeikis said.
“People are getting cynical
about the news. It doesn’t
seem like there’s one place
to watch where you get the
straight dope. You watch the
channel that proves your
point. I would argue that
comedy has taken on the
role that folk singers had in
the ’60s and ’70s in the sense
that people come to us for
the truth.”
I can see the mountains in the distance. So
many times, I can see the fog
start to break and the water
behind it. It’s very classical.
Af ter 38 years of
living here, what is
your favorite and least
favo r i te t h i n g a b o ut
America?
My least favorite thing is
that it is too mechanical.
My favorite thing is I like
seeing Americans walking
their dogs. I hear Americans
are protecting the animals.
That means there is kindness.
Do you have any philosophies by which
you live?
Go with God — it doesn’t
matter what God. For
me, it’s just a force. Go with
God means doing things
with good intention. Do
your best, work something
as truthfully as you can, as
hard as you can. The rest, let
it fall. Don’t force anything
to happen. Trust. Be natural.
Things will open up. Follow
your own routine, and you
do the best you can, and see
what happens. You feel more
fulfilled that way.

don’t like to be called at dinner, others don’t like to be
called during prime-time TV
and still others don’t like to
be called while putting the
kids to bed or after 9, when
they may be taking a few
minutes after a busy day to
relax,” she said.
Henry said for survey and
polling calls in particular,
it’s an important part of the
democratic process.
“This isn’t all bad. Being
asked to give your opinion
without debate, judgment
or disapproval is uncommon and gives us a chance
to share what we think about
important topics and allows
us to take part in public dis-
Teen
cussions about those issues
that shape the future of our
communities and the country,” she said.
With that said, Henry has
some tips for consumers. If
you don’t want to participate
in the survey, don’t just hang
up or tell them you are not
interested.
Since it’s important for
the quality of the data for
different perspectives to be
collected, if you don’t specifically tell the person not
to call you again, you should
expect to get called again,
Henry said. If you want to
participate, but it’s a bad
time, give the caller a better
time to call back.

Musketeers,” Closed Door
Entertainment’s “Treasure Island” and Kim Parrish Productions’ “Aesop’s
Fables.”
On Sunday, she ended
her most recent role in
Back Alley Productions’
four-show run of “Sherlock
Holmes: The Final Adventure” at Barking Legs Theater. Tabitha portrayed one
of a troupe of ragamuffins
charged with interacting
with and engaging the audience before the production
as well as aiding the notorious detective during the
show.
With just hours to go
until the curtain rose on
opening night, Tabitha
said she wasn’t nervous,
having served a similar
function last year during a six-month stint as
one of the youngest cast
members in the Vaudeville Cafe murder mystery
dinner theater.
“Normally, I feel nervous, but when the curtain
opens, you know you’ve got
it down,” she said. “There
are still a few nerves in
opening night, but it’s still
a lot of fun.”
After her debut in “Willy
Wonka,” Tabitha continued
to work with Dr. Goss on
other musicals, including “Annie,” “Aladdin” and
Roberts

“Cinderella.”
The director said he was
initially drawn to Tabitha
by her innate vocal talents. Over time, however,
he also has come to appreciate the exuberance with
which she approached her
roles.
“She has that confidence
level that many little kids
don’t who are intimidated
by performing,” Goss said.
“She just goes for it and just
enjoys it.
“Her preparation
impresses me. She comes
in and knows everyone’s
lines. She’s the kind of kid
who you wish you could

about Lyme disease, but
you need to be aware that
ticks can also cause: anaplasmosis, babessiosis (or
parasites), ehrlichiosis,
Rocky Mountain spotted
fever, Southern tick-associated rash illness, tickborne relapsing fever,
tularemia and powassan
encephalitis.
As one reader pointed out, “There are some
things one can do to prevent tick bites, like showering when you have been
outside — using a handheld or full-length mirror
to view all parts of the
body. Treat boots, clothing and camping gear with
permethrin.”
If you have pets, be sure
to regularly consult your
veterinarian about preventing your pets from bringing
ticks into the home.
This has scared me well
enough that I have placed
“tick management” near
the top of my health goals.
The next symptom is an
illness similar to the flu.
The next stage is Bell’s palsy
episodes with a drooping of
face muscles. Full seizures
can follow, but remember
that all the symptoms may
not occur.
In writing the original
column on tick bites, my
primary concern was the
lackadaisical attitude of so
many people about getting
the ticks to turn loose and
back out of the body. “Just
put a glob of petroleum
jelly on it, and it will turn
loose” or one of the other
simplistic solutions.
I did not know how dangerous most of them are
due to the tick’s tendency
to regurgitate its poisons
while turning loose. I think
I listed the safest ways to
get the tick out (Tic-off and

tick tweezers).
