Despite losing their leading scorer to fouls early in the fourth period, the Dickson County Lady Cougars beat what many polls list as the top team in Class AAA by 25 points Friday in the semifinal of the Smoky Mountain Classic Christmas Tournament in Gatlinburg. Dickson County handed White County its first loss of the season 78-53. The Lady Cougars improve to 11-0 and will play in the blue bracket championship game Saturday at 6 pm Central. All five Lady Cougar starters finished in double digits and LeaLea Carter recorded a double-double with a game-high 19 points and 14 rebounds as DCHS controlled the boards 38-26. Dickson County lost Emily Beard, the only player to score in double figures every game this season, to fouls with over six minutes left in the game. Despite playing without their leading scorer, the Lady Cougars finished on a 14-2 run and shot just under 50 percent from the floor while hitting 26 of 31 free throws. The Warriorettes lost four players to fouls before the final buzzer. Dickson County was in control from the beginning leading 17-9 after the first period and 37-24 at intermission as six players had four points or more. A Beard steal and layup late in the third period pushed the margin past 20 points at 49-28. White County cut the difference to 13 points before Dickson County went on the 14-2 run to close the 25-point win. Behind Carter’s 19, Beard had 15 despite her early exit. Lainey Reed finished with 12, Carlee Wilson had 11 and Payton Grove added 10. Dickson County will play for the championship of the blue bracket at 6 pm Central Saturday at Gatlinburg-Pittman High School. They will face the winner of Friday night’s semfinal between Sycamore and the host Lady Highlanders. Coverage on the RFC Sports Network begins at 5:45.

A Dickson County judge is considering whether to allow an extra appeal for a woman convicted of forcing her stepchildren to participate in the murder of their mother. After a hearing in Charlotte Thursday, Circuit Court Judge Larry Wallace took under advisement a petition for post-conviction relief by 50-year-old Kimberly Mangrum, who is serving a life sentence for the 2002 kidnapping and murder of LeeAnn Mangrum. Attorney Rebecca Stevens argued that Kimberly Mangrum did not get effective representation during her appeal of her conviction, which was rejected by the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals in 2011 and the Tennessee Supreme Court in 2013. Following a 2005 trial, Kimberly Mangrum was convicted of felony murder, especially aggravated kidnapping and aggravated burglary. In an appeal, Public Defender Jake Lockert cited four factors, including insufficient evidence for a conviction, court error in allowing Kimberly Mangrum’s stepdaughter to testify twice before the grand jury, court error by not allowing a homemade dummy to be used as “demonstrative evidence,” and court error in allowing a neighbor to testify about the relationship between Kimberly Mangrum, her husband, Terry Mangrum Sr., and his son and daughter from his marriage to LeeAnn Mangrum. On the stand Thursday, Lockert admitted that he was unable to properly find and cite any case law for the last two points of the appeal. Because it did not meet the requirements for an appeal, the Tennessee Court of Criminal Appeals did not address those issues in rejecting Mangrum’s petition and the Tennessee Supreme Court subsequently upheld her convictions and life sentence. Stevens argued Thursday that Kimberly Mangrum has the same Constitutional right to effective counsel in the appellate process that she does at trial. She told Wallace that Mangrum is not asking him to set aside her convictions but to grant her a delayed appeal so she can properly argue the unaddressed factors of her previous appeal. Wallace said he would review the arguments and rule as soon as possible. Alicia and Terry Mangrum Jr., LeeAnn Mangrum’s children who were 11 and 15 years old, respectively, at the time of her murder, testified during the trial that their stepmother threatened them and forced them to help her kidnap and kill their mother Sept. 8, 2002. Kimberly Mangrum confronted LeeAnn Mangrum at her Dickson County home in the early morning hours and beat her unconscious with a baseball bat. She then forced Alicia Mangrum to help her tie her mother up and Terry Mangrum Jr. to place her in a vehicle and drive her to Turnbull Creek. Kimberly Mangrum then forced Terry Jr. to hold his mother’s head under the water until she drowned. Her body was found by a fisherman later that day. The children testified Kimberly Mangrum forced them to break into and ransack their mother’s home to make it look like a burglary. In the appeal, Lockert claimed that Kimberly Mangrum’s DNA on cigarette butts found at the crime scenes was not enough evidence to corroborate the children’s testimony; that the district attorney used the grand jury process as an investigative tool by granting Alicia Mangrum immunity in changing her testimony during two appearances on the same day; that a canvas and sand dummy made by the defense to match LeeAnn Mangrum’s height and weight should have been allowed in the trial to demonstrate the difficulty in carrying her body; and that a neighbor should not have been allowed to provide testimony portraying Kimberly Mangrum as controlling in her relationship with her husband and stepchildren. Mangrum is serving a life sentence for her felony murder conviction, 25 years for aggravated kidnapping and six years for aggravated burglary.

Dickson County Sheriff’s Office detectives were able to make an arrest quickly Wednesday following a report of a home burglary in the White Bluff area. According to a statement from the sheriff’s office, 26-year-old Thomas Daniel Williams was arrested soon after a reported burglary on Craun Hollow Road after an officer spotted a vehicle matching a description supplied by a witness. The statement says the burglary was reported at 11:30 am Wednesday and deputies quickly obtained information on a possible suspect and a vehicle description. As officers from the sheriff’s office’s patrol, criminal investigations and warrants divisions saturated the area for a search, they received more information about a possible location of the suspect vehicle. A deputy spotted the vehicle and Williams was arrested. The report says detectives were able to recover property believed to have been taken in the burglary as well as other related evidence. Williams is charged with aggravated burglary, theft, possession of burglary tools, possession of a schedule II narcotic and possession of drug paraphernalia. He is being held in the Dickson County Jail on $30,000 bond with an appearance in Dickson County General Sessions Court set for today.

Dickson County school system Maintenance and Transportation Director Gary Kimmons is retiring at the end of the month. Kimmons has been with the school system 17 years. Board Chairman Tim Potter read a letter from Kimmons at Thursday night’s school board meeting. Director of Schools Dr. Danny Weeks said he is already moving to address the position. Weeks said he posted an opening for a maintenance coordinator position and received 17 applications. “We have interviewed, completed first-round interviews today. We’ll be having some call-back interviews first part of next week and hopefully have some decisions to make before the start of the year,” Weeks said. Asked by board member Phil Buckner about the dual responsibilities of maintenance and transportation, Weeks said he is “looking at how the operations of our system are structured.” Kimmons took over the transportation department duties when Jesse Roberts retired three years ago. Potter said the selection of a new maintenance director comes at a critical time as the school system is about to embark on a $6 million first stage of its facilities improvement plan. “I think that whoever the maintenance director is, that’s going to be an important hire, especially in light of the capital improvements that we’re going to be making over the next several months and years. So, someone who’s knowledgeable and loves Dickson County schools,” Potter said. Brittany Dean, the school board’s student representative from Creek Wood High School, reported Thursday that more than 50 applications were received for the football head coaching position at the school. Chuck Daniel resigned last month after leading the Red Hawks for 11 seasons. Dean said interviews with candidates will start in January.

TriStar Bank will host its annual Christmas concert featuring the choirs from Creek Wood and Dickson County high schools today. The free performance will be at 1:30 pm in the lobby of the main branch on East College Street. Creek Wood’s Choral Department is directed by Lisa Zimdars while Dickson County is directed by Cindy Freeman and Judge Michael Meise. The performance will feature both schools’ concert choirs as well as groups such as Chamber Singers, Beautyshop Revue and Barbershop Revue and conclude with a joint performance. Because of the Lady Cougars playing in the Smoky Mountain Classic Christmas Tournament in Gatlinburg today, WDKN and The One FM will not be able to broadcast the choir performance live as it has for the past four years, but it will be recorded for rebroadcast multiple times over the holidays.

Dickson County High School’s Lady Cougars won a shootout over Smith County 72-68 in Thursday’s first round of the Smoky Mountain Classic Christmas Tournament in Gatlinburg. The victory over the state’s 8th-ranked team in Class AA advances the Lady Cougars to Friday’s noon Central semifinal showdown of unbeaten teams. 10-0 Dickson County will play 12-0 White County, a Thursday winner over Northwest Whitfield of Georgia. “This is what’s preparing us to play in March,” Coach Eve Hamilton said after the game. “We’re going to be a better team because of this tournament.” The Lady Cougars remained undefeated at 10-0 while the Lady Owls fall to 8-3. Dickson County shot better than 50 percent from the floor and 6 of 16 in three pointers as the 72 points is the team’s top point total so far this season. Smith County hit just under half of its shots, and took 19 three-pointers, connecting on nine. Sophomore Emily Beard led Dickson County with 24 points, hitting double figures for every game this season. Senior Payton Grove finished with 20, including the final two to secure the win on an inbound play in the closing seconds. Returning after missing a game with the flu, Lainey Reed contributed 12 points and played tight defense on Smith County’s best shooter. Dickson County will face White County at noon today at Gatlinburg-Pittman High School. Pregame coverage on the RFC Sports Network starts at 11:45 with the A-1 Signs Pregame Show.

Dickson Middle School’s basketball teams wrapped up the 2014 portion of their schedules with 12-1 records by sweeping Harpeth on the road Thursday night. The Lady Dragons overcame foul trouble and an injury to hold off the Lady Indians 39-26. Missing a leader due to illness, the Dragons got off to a slow start before pulling away for the 42-28 victory. The Lady Dragons battled through a tight first half that saw Dickson slowed when Caty Roberts went to the bench with early foul trouble and Ryann Roberts left the game with an injury following a hard fall in the first half. K.K. Curtis stepped up with nine points in the first half, including five in the second period, to help Dickson build a 24-9 edge at intermission. The Lady Dragon offense struggled in the second half despite the return of the Roberts cousins but the defense allowed the 15-point halftime lead to withstand the Lady Indians assault and hold on for the 13-point win. Despite missing playing time following her fall, Ryann Roberts led Dickson with 14 points. In a game that turned testy and featured numerous whistles, including technical fouls on both sides, the Dragons overcame a tight first-half battle to pull away in the second half. Dickson was playing without leader Darian Burns due to illness. Kody Pardue led the early attack with six points in the first period but a Harpeth three-pointer at the buzzer trimmed Dickson’s lead to one at 8-7. The teams battled evenly as the fouls began to mount in the second period and Dickson’s one-point edge held at halftime 16-15. But new starter Max Sensing sparked the Dragons with five points in the third period and Dickson pulled ahead 26-21. Pardue finished strong with nine points in the fourth as the Dragons pulled away to the 14-point win. Pardue led all scorers with 17. Dickson Middle School returns to the court Jan. 13 hosting West Wilson. William James will host Sycamore Jan. 5 then join Charlotte in the Middle Tennessee Athletic Conference Tournament starting Jan. 10 in Waverly.
