Ms. kaley carpenter helped them understand and cope.

One parent describes her as an 'angel in disguise'.

Ms. carpenter is more than deserving of tonight's.... golden apple award.

Natural sound: miss kaley on behalf of food city and news channel .12 i would like to present you with this weeks golden apple award.

Thank you kaley: i'm a teacher here at meigs south.

I go to church.

I am a wife, recently.

I have lots of different roles so just as myself i am very ambitious.

I like to take charge and do all those different roles while also being down home.

Just being a person you can connect to and really get to know.

Braille: we learn a lot and plus she is one of the nicest teachers i have had.

Tripp: she is fun.

She lets us do stuff.

She is nice and sweet.

Kaley: i am a kid at heart.

I love to play and i love to be with kids.

I connect with them.

I can talk to them and they can come right up to me.

Natural sound: it's not all about how fast you can read but how fast you can read correctly.

Rachel: what kaylee endured the first semester of her teaching from covid to the bus accident most teachers never endure anything like that in their entire career.

And for her to and for her to go through that within the first few months of her teaching career, and for her to be so strong for kids in our school and our community again it's such a testament to the person she is, her faith.

Kaley: as a person i've always thought so low of myself and i guess that's just something lots of people do.

They have these big goals and dreams but they never think it could happen.

It was very very challenging to get through this last semester.

But i knew i needed to be here for my kids.

It was hard for me to come in during those last several months and just come in, and come in with a smile on my face.

But that is what my kids needed.

And so to hear those words it means a whole lot to know that not only do other people see me working and trying to be here for these kids.

But they also know i'm doing the work too.

Tiger woods golf career is once again on hold.

And an s-e-c football coach is not surprised by what happened on rocky top.

Here's rick nyman from the gatorade sports desk.

Plus, former dalton state basketball coach tony ingle has passed away.

And the mocs are looking to improve their defense.

"now from the news 12 sports desk."

If the mocs are going to make a run at the socon title, they need to pick it up on defense.

In their last two conference losses, chattanooga has seen their opponent light'em up, especially in the second half.

Chattanooga enjoyed a 13 point halftime lead against wofford on saturday when the defense collapsed right out of the gate in the second half.

Paris:"so i thought our defense at the point of attack.

Right from the get go.

The very first possession.

You had a blatant defesive error on the very first defensive possession."

When you play bad on defense, the other team usually starts playing good offense.

Wofford scored 55 points in teh second half to rally for the win.

Paris:"if my math is right.

55 in the second half.

What are we doing.

We're not serious about winning."

The mocs are 2-3 in the socon, and they're at the bottom of many defensive stats in the league.

They're last in field goal percentage defense and blocked shots.

And perhaps most troubling, they're last in rebounding margin.

The lack of boards was killer in the loss to wofford.

Smith:"you look at the rebounds.

That out-rebounded us by 21 in the second half.

So that's just competing and playing harder."

More hustle may not be the answer on the boards, but it wouldn't hurt.

Paris:"one team is really aggressie and one team was passive.

And aggressie wins.

There's being good at basketball, and there's being good at competing.

Being good at competing is better."

Missing front line players to injury like k-c hankton doesn't help the defensive effort either.

Paris:"where depth really hurts you is that if a guy is not playing well or a guy can't get a stop, you have a difficult time subbing out.

All right.

You have a difficult time subbing out.

That's where the lack of depth gets you more than anything."

Sad news from dalton.

Former dalton state head basketball coach tony ingle has died.

According to his son, he passed away at the age of 68 from complications due to covid.

Ingle helped resurrect the road runners basketball program in 20-13 after the program was dormant for 35 years.

And in his second season, ingle led dalton state to the n-a-i-a national title.

Ingle also won a national championship in 2004 as the head coach at kennessaw state.

It's also a sad day for braves fans as don sutton has died.

Sutton was a hall of fame pitcher, who joined the atlanta braves broadcasting crew in 1989.

Sutton was 75 years old.

Jeremy pruitt's firing at tennessee resonated across the s-e-c yesterday, but it didn's surprise kentucky coach mark stoops.

He said on rado tuesday, "i gotta be careful in my response here," did i see it coming?

Yes, i'm grateful it came.

Does it surprise me?

Not one bit."

Surprising news from tiger woods today.
