______________________________________________________ An INTERNATIONAL BONEHEAD AWARD has been earned by William Riley Gaul, 18, Maryville, Tennessee Former Tennessee college student allegedly stalked teen cheerleader before fatally shooting her. A former college football player stalked a high school cheerleader for weeks before fatally shooting her as she slept inside her east Tennessee home, newly filed charges claim. William Riley Gaul, 18, was charged Monday with first-degree murder, aggravated stalking, theft, tampering with evidence, reckless endangerment, employing a firearm during a dangerous felony, and felony murder, WVLT-TV reported. Gaul has been behind bars since November when 16-year-old Emma Walker was found fatally wounded in her Knoxville home. Authorities said the two had been in a relationship and that Walker had broken up with the former Maryville College student before she was killed. The indictment against Gaul says the teen was deeply distraught over her decision, Maryville’s The Daily Times reported. "She had chosen to move on," Walker’s aunt, Jenny Weldon, told The Knoxville News Sentinel in December of her niece’s decision. "He refused to accept it. He chose not to accept her wishes." Gaul allegedly proceeded to stalk Walker throughout October and November before he hid outside her home and fired a gun – one that he reportedly took from his grandfather into her bedroom on the morning of Nov. 23, The Daily Times reported citing a copy of the indictment. Walker was pronounced dead at the scene, authorities said. “He knew where she was when he shot through the house," Maj. Michael K. MacLean, of the Knox County Sheriff’s Office, previously told the News Sentinel. In a dark twist, in the hours after Walker’s death, Gaul took to social media to profess his love for the slain teen. He was arrested one day later when authorities said he tried to hide evidence in the shooting. The District Attorney’s office did not respond to a request for comment Wednesday. Gaul’s bond has been set at $1 million. His next court date is scheduled for Jan. 30, online records show. ______________________________________________________ Tech Support Pits From: Dolores Re: Spam with my address as sender Dear Webby Lately I have been getting more and more spam with my address forged in as the sender. How can I stop that? I sometimes send mail to myself, so I can't just filter for the sender address. Help! Dolores Dear Dolores If you don't have a home network set up, set one up. Just use the Network Wizard. Give your machine a very colorful name, for example MORKY1. You don't really need any other machines, just set up your machine as first machine of a network. Then send an email to yourself and look at the header. In there you will now see the name that you have given your machine. With MailWasher it's easy to make a filter for that. If the FROM address CONTAINS dolores@.... AND the ENTIRE HEADER DOESN'T CONTAIN MORKY1 then delete the mail, automatically, without showing it in the list. After that, you will never again be bothered with spam that has your address forged in, but you can send memos to yourself all you want, and those will come through reliably. Sneaky, but it works! Have FUN! DearWebby
The CIA loses track of one of its operatives, and so calls in one of their top spy hunters. The CIA boss says, "All I can tell you is that his name is Murphy and that he's somewhere in Ireland. If you think you've located him, tell him the code words, 'The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning.' If it's really him, he'll answer, 'Yes, and for mist at noon as well.'" So the spy hunter goes to Ireland and stops in a pub in Dublin. He says to the bartender, "Maybe you can help me. I'm looking for a guy named Murphy." The bartender replies, "You're going to have to be more specific because, around here, there are lots of guys named Murphy. There's Murphy the Baker, who runs the pastry shop on the next block. There's Murphy the Banker, who's president of our local savings bank. There's Murphy the Blacksmith, who works at the stables. And, as a matter of fact, my name is Murphy, too." Hearing this, the spy hunter figures he might as well try the code words on bartender, so he says, "The weather forecast calls for mist in the morning." The bartender replies, "Oh, you're looking for Murphy the Spy. He lives three villages right down the river, but he occasionally comes in here around 6 PM. I'll page you if he shows up."

Awesome metal and river rock sculptures.
I was waiting to talk to the pharmacist at the local drug store about his web site when a sweet young lady from the neighborhood came in. She had just recently gotten married. She was looking at the men's toiletries. and the clerk asked her if she needed any assistance. I heard her say, "Well, I'm looking for some deodorant for my new husband , but I don't know what kind he uses." The clerk asked, "Is it the ball type?" I almost lost it when she responded, "Oh No ...It's for his under his arms."
