Walden’s center to get cinema

INSIDE

Work on 5-screen theater could begin next month, open in May By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer

PIGEON FORGE — It looks like local residents will have a new option for going to the movies come spring after Pigeon Forge Planning Commission members unanimously approved a site plan that will change the face of Walden’s Landing. The proposal calls for locating a movie theater in the Parkway shopping center.

Developer Ned Vickers, who could not attend Tuesday’s Planning Commission session because he was at a trade show for cinema owners, told The Mountain Press he plans to open five screens by May with construction possibly starting next month. There is a potential for expansion to nine screens. “This theater’s meant to draw a couple hundred thousand people each year, and we’ve had a feasibility study done

that shows we can expect that,” Vickers said by phone. “We’ve had a great response so far. I’ve never had a project that was so positively received.” At the beginning of the year, things weren’t looking so good for the idea. At one time Vickers, who works for Holrob Investments, was in talks with a company that hoped to open a dinner theater in the middle of the complex where a miniature golf

course now sits. Several tenants protested the idea and one even filed suit, saying the construction would block views of their businesses. Since then, Vickers has settled the lawsuit and revamped the plans. The current proposal calls for locating the movie theater at the back of the shopping center in six suites that have traditionally been hard to fill. See cinema, Page A5

Corrections James Lee Parton had not just been released from an alcohol treatment program the day he was involved in an accident that took the life of Ray Reynolds, Parton’s daughter said Tuesday in response to a guest column by Ray Reynolds’ widow that was published in the Tuesday edition. He was scheduled to begin a treatment program the day after the accident. Parton was convicted of vehicular manslaughter in connection with the 2000 fatality and is due to be paroled this year. The Mountain Press is glad to set the record straight.

By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer Around 80 students at Boyds Creek Elementary School honored the memory of search and rescue dog Cherokee on Monday morning, which was just more than a year after his death. The students, who gathered around a red maple tree planted in remembrance of Cherokee, had read to the dog every week as second-graders in Mary Clark’s class. It was part of the HABIT program — “Human Animal Bond in Tennessee” — in which the school had participated for five years. “I can’t tell you how much I appreciate your teachers letting you come today,” Clark told the children. “I have learned that an animal’s presence can truly change the way you feel. When Cherokee entered the classroom, everyone calmed down.

Boyds Creek Elementary School second-grade teacher Mary Clark, holding red folder, talks about the impact of having Cherokee visit the school had on the students. He cheered us up when we were feeling sad.” HABIT volunteer Anne Hayward had noticed the program was being done in schools throughout the country before she helped bring HABIT to Sevier County. “We thought, ‘Why

can’t we do this?’” she said. “The dogs are always thoroughly evaluated for the HABIT program, but they’re even further evaluated for the reading program. They have to be good with children. “Cherokee was one of

the first dogs we put into the classroom. One of the reasons he was so memorable is because he knew exactly what to do. He would put his head in your lap while you read to him. This dog was remarkable in every way.”

Raised as a leader dog for the blind, Cherokee was diagnosed with a potential problem with one elbow, so he was redirected to serve in the HABIT program. “He was wonderful See dog, Page A4

Traffic stop leads to multiple charges By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — A Gatlinburg man who allegedly ran a red light Friday reportedly had a lot more to worry about when police stopped him. Officer Bryan Shiver stopped a 1992

Oldsmobile Cutlass on Friday after the car failed to stop for the light. When the driver, 26-year-old Robert S. Potter II, pulled over, Shiver found that he had a suspended driver’s license and an active warrant from Knox County for failing to appear in court regarding a theft

charge. When Shiver took Potter into custody, he found 75 grams of what appeared to be marijuana, four oxycontin prescription pills and two pipes. Potter was arrested and charged with distribution of a controlled substance, possession of a synthet-

ic narcotic, possession of drug paraphernalia, driving on a suspended license, failure to appear and failure to obey a traffic control device. He was being held at Sevier County Jail in lieu of $10,000 bond. n jfarrell@themountainpress.com

Public’s help sought in solving 2008 robbery By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — Police here area asking for the public’s help in identifying the suspect in a robbery from more than a year ago.

ing oxycontin pills. He left with an undisclosed number of pills. Officers searched the area shortly after the crime, but never located the suspect. Witnesses said he was a white man in his late 20s or early 30s. He was about 6 feet tall and weighed 170 to 180 pounds, with close cut blond or brown hair. “More than likely, there is a person

There haven’t been any recent developments in the case, said Pubic Information Officer Both Stahlke. They asked that anyone with information on the alleged incident call 453-5507. n jfarrell@themountainpress.com

Big brewers battling it out with calorie-cutting brands By EMILY FREDRIX AP Food Industry Writer MILWAUKEE — How low can beer makers go? Having conquered the beerbelly set, some of the nation’s biggest brewers are trying to win over the sixpack-ab crowd with ultra-low-calorie suds. The question is: Are drinkers willing to sacrifice flavor and a bit of the buzz? And: How long before beer gets turned back into water? Most regular American beers, such as Budweiser, have about 150 calories and 5 percent alcohol, while most light beers contain around 100 calories and 4 percent alcohol. The new brews, MillerCoors’ Miller Genuine Draft 64 and Anheuser-Busch InBev’s Select 55, are well below that. Their calorie counts are in their names, and they both contain less than 3 percent alcohol. Guzzling a whole MGD 64

or Select 55 is like taking a few swigs of a Bud. Mindy Rotellini, a 25-year-old graphic designer from St. Louis who watches her calories, reaches for MGD 64 from time to time, even though the brew is “kind of watery� and it’s tough to feel the alcohol. “I just have to drink more, and then it’s going to equal the amount of calories in a regular beer, so why not just drink a regular beer?� she says. Chris Bethel switched to Select 55 because it is low-cal. He says he likes the light taste and doesn’t mind the reduced alcohol. “I’m not a college kid trying to get wasted,� says the 36-yearold network engineer in the Columbus, Ohio, area. Both drinkers speak to an unavoidable tradeoff: To cut calories, beer companies reduce the amount of malted barley and other grains that are fermented during the brewing process.

Gas prices up for 2 straight weeks Associated Press Consumers for the first time this year are paying more on average for a gallon of gasoline than they did 12 months ago, according to data released Tuesday. There is a good chance that this week, retail gasoline will surpass peak summer prices reached just over four months ago during the driving season when prices are usually at their highest. Pump prices are following crude higher and refiners are now cutting back on production because the cost of the crude that they convert to fuel has been rising so fast. Crude futures rose again Tuesday and for the 14th straight day, so

did retail gasoline prices. A gallon of gas climbed 0.4 cents higher overnight to $2.675 a gallon, according to auto club AAA, Wright Express and Oil Price Information Service. Prices a year ago were $2.668 a gallon. At this time last year, however, gasoline prices were falling fast as the financial crisis on Wall Street spread to Main Street. That means the gap between last year’s prices and prices now is going to grow. By December 2008, pump prices had tumbled

all the way to $1.61. Just six months before, prices hit a record $4.11 which had millions of motorists cutting back on driving. Gasoline prices are rising as shoppers begin to think about the holidays ahead, and the latest data suggests it won’t take much to knock them out of stride. If consumers are spending more on energy, that may be deducted from the holiday shopping budget even though energy prices have been a relative bargain all year long.

Torture slaying case goes to jury KNOXVILLE (AP) — The case against the alleged leader in the torture slaying of a young Knoxville couple went to the jury Tuesday with the defense trying to poke holes in a mountain of circumstantial evidence. Lemaricus Davidson, 28, faced 46 counts including kidnapping, theft, rape and murder in the January 2007 carjacking deaths of University of Tennessee student Channon Christian, 21, and her

boyfriend Christopher Newsom, 23. The state intends to seek the death penalty if he is convicted. The case has touched a racial nerve because the defendants are black and the victims were white. Davidson’s lawyer David Eldridge acknowledged in closing arguments that his client was a drug dealer, that he lied to police after his arrest and that he had sex with Christian. Eldridge suggested the clean-cut couple may

have come to Davidson to buy drugs, while prosecutors say they were random victims ambushed by gun-wielding men in an apartment parking lot while on a date. Eldridge said there’s reasonable doubt Davidson committed a crime, blaming instead Davidson’s three codefendants, whom he called “the gang from Kentucky.” He claimed the prosecution offered a “made up story” to link Davidson to the rapes, beatings and killings that

occurred within hours or days of the carjacking. “This is real life. So we can’t tell you a story like you would find on a ‘Law & Order’ episode ... (that) happened in a nice little package,” prosecutor Leland Price acknowledged. The only ones who could say for certain what happened are Christian and Newsom, and “Davidson made sure they were silenced forever, that they would never talk again,” Price said.

commentary

Ex-lawmaker sees GOP ’10 rebound Some of my more disapproving colleagues in the press corps regularly remind the rest of us that there is only one way to look at any politician: down! I disagree. Let me state at the outset: I like a lot of politicians and few of them more than I like Tom Davis, the shrewd and savvy Republican who chose, last year, to voluntarily leave the U.S. House after seven terms of representing his suburban Northern Virginia district. In addition to being good company and even capable of laughing at himself, Davis knows as much about American politics as anybody I talk to. For example, over a recent lunch, he offered as proof that his GOP has lost “the inner suburbs” and increasingly “become a rural party, a Southern Party” the facts that Democrat Barack Obama carried 78 of the 100 U.S. counties with the highest education levels, while Republican John McCain had carried 88 of the nation’s 100 counties with the lowest education levels. While most political coverage in this off-year centers on the New Jersey and Virginia governor’s races, Davis devotes his attention and efforts to a Nov. 3 special House election in the 23rd district in northern New York, way up near the U.S.-Canada border. This district has sent only Republicans to Washington for the last 137 years, but Obama handily defeated McCain here. The GOP House nominee, state Assemblywoman Dede Scozzafava, a moderate on gay rights and pro-choice on abortion, has become the target of the national anti-tax group the Club for Growth and prominent social conservatives, including 2008 vice presidential nominee Sarah Palin. They are backing Conservative Party candidate Doug Hoffman. This nasty GOP civil war benefits Democrat Bill Owens, for whom President Obama is raising funds. Davis is strongly supporting centrist Republican Scozzafava. He knows that a Democratic win would leave the Republicans even less competitive in the Northeastern United States, with only two House members in New York and all six New England states. Davis does not conceal his argument with those “on the far right like (the Family Research Council’s) Tony Perkins and Rush Limbaugh (who) want a private club with an admissions test. They don’t want a political party which is, by definition, a coalition.” By Davis’ lights, 2010 ought to be a good Republican year. There is a natural cycle when after a change-of-party presidential election, the president’s congressional party is often punished in the first midterm election for the sins of the new president, whose name is not on the ballot. Ronald Reagan — two years before he would win re-election carrying 49 states — saw his GOP lose 26 House seats. In 1994, Bill Clinton — two years before he would become the first Democrat since FDR to win a second White House term — was powerless to stop the loss of 52 Democratic House seats. Davis lists the Democrats’ other problems: In 2006 and 2008, Democrats “overperformed” by winning traditionally Republican House seats where GOP voters were discouraged by party scandals and the Bush presidency. “The energy source the Democrats twice used to plug into — George W. Bush — is gone.” And midterm reaction votes, he points out, are always stronger against the party “when that same party controls both the Congress and the White House.” Witness the Democratic defeats in 1978 and 1994, and the Republicans’ thumping in 2006. But what concerns Davis is “the real disconnect between the Republican Party and the nation,” as reflected in the blood feud in the New York special election. Davis knows the country is changing and believes passionately that his party must change, as well, because, in the final analysis, politics is a matter of addition, not of subtraction. — Mark Shields is a veteran political campaign manager and frequent television talk show commentator.

Editorial

Rock solid

Closing of I-40 disruptive and untimely, but we have to make the best of it A rock slide the size of the one that has closed Interstate 40 just across the Tennessee line in North Carolina should have caused massive pile-ups and injuries. The fact it didn’t is just short of a miracle. The closing of I-40 for as long as three months shows just how dependent we have become on the interstate highway system. Getting to Asheville and east of Asheville or to our area and beyond will be more difficult and time-consuming in the weeks ahead. I-40 through western North Carolina is a treacherous stretch of road. A rock slide in 1997 shut down the interstate for several weeks. This one may hurt even more than that one because it disrupts the holiday season and affects the close of the fall tourist season. There is no good time to close a major highway, but the holidays may be the worst time. There is some thought this incident might even help Sevier County.

Those who don’t want to drive 90 miles out of the way using the route preferred by transportation officials might settle instead for a longer stay in our area. Misfortune for Asheville could be fortune for Sevier County, even if the reason for the uptick is something as unexpected as a rock slide closing the interstate. Of course those from east of Sevier County in North Carolina who wanted to come here for the fall and winter may choose someplace else, but more people visit us from the north, west and south, and those areas are largely unaffected by the interstate closure. Clean-up crews will be under intense pressure to get the road open as quickly as possible. A financial incentive wouldn’t hurt. It’s not just removing the boulders; it’s stabilizing the walls that caused the rock slide in the first place. That’s what will take up most of the time.

This section of I-40 was carved out through mountains and solid rock. An occasional loosening of the rocks will happen. It’s probably not possible to permanently fix this problem. In the meantime we can rejoice that nobody got hurt and that the clean-up and repairs have begun. There are alternative routes you can take to get to the Asheville area and beyond. State officials recommend taking I-81 to Johnson City, then connecting to I-26 south to Asheville. You also can take 25/70 through Newport to connect to I-26. Be patient and understanding as this clean-up proceeds. Nobody planned this and nobody wanted this. It is what it is, and it’s up to us to make the best of it. The interstate system first proposed by President Eisenhower has been a wonderful thing. And when it shuts down, we all suffer. Hey, it’s only a little time out of your day.

Political view

Public forum Bugs in county jail not being treated in right way

Editor: My grandson did wrong and is in the Sevier County jail annex. We have learned that he has been infected with the little bugs that sometimes show up in this type environment. My concern is not that the problem came up, but that the inmates treated for the problem approximately three to four weeks ago at their own expense, at what I believe to be excessive cost due to them being a captive audience, still have the problem. Why hasn’t the cause been taken care of. Clean the areas from top to bottom, use Lysol usually, then follow up on the cleaning. Now they sell the ointment for a one-

time use evidently, then send them back to get infected again. I personally call this cruel and unusual punishment. If they don’t eliminate the cause, how do they expect to eliminate the problem? My grandson had been incarcerated several months before the little bugs got to him, so he did not bring the problem into the facility. I would like to know if Sheriff Seals knows about the problem, and if he does, why hasn’t he done something about it? I tried to talk to the sheriff, but can never get him when I call. I did talk to the lieutenant over the annex when the problem started and got nowhere. About a week ago I called the Sevier County Health Department and was told by a nurse there that she would talk to the nurse at the annex about it and notify the CDC. As of Oct. 25, there doesn’t seem to

be any action taken. The cost by the way, according to my grandson, for enough ointment to treat the affected area is $10. Yes, if they did the crime they should do the time, but doesn’t this come under cruel and unusual punishment? The bites lead to excessive scratching which leads to broken skin which leads to infections which causes staph infections. Yes, they gave up their freedom when they committed the crimes, but should they be subjected to this inhumane treatment? I want this letter to get somebody’s attention. My wife and I love our grandson and he has to learn his lesson, but we don’t want to see his health put at risk nor do we want to see any of the other inmates not be protected from or treated for any condition.

Seymour season over with Report: Adams wants Young starting against Jags loss to Dobyns-Bennett NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) — Jeff Fisher has stayed away from a quarterback controversy all through the Tennessee Titans’ dreadful start. Now, team owner Bud Adams reportedly wants a change. Adams informed Fisher he wants Vince Young to start over Kerry Collins this weekend against Jacksonville, according to the Tennessean. The Nashville newspaper cited sources Tuesday that Adams apparently told Fisher his preference after the Titans lost to New England 59-0 on Oct. 18 and became more insistent during the bye week. A call to Adams’ Houston office was referred to the team’s media relations department in Nashville. A message was not immediately returned Tuesday. Fisher declined Monday to say who his starter will be Sunday for “competitive reasons.” He had stuck with Collins throughout the 0-6 start as the best chance to win. The Titans practiced Tuesday and had their first team meetings since returning from their bye. Collins had not been told of any change when the Titans last spoke with reporters nearly a week ago. But the Titans are one of three remaining winless teams in the league — St. Louis and Tampa Bay are both 0-7. Fisher wants to shake up things for a team that has lost eight straight games since last season, when Tennessee sprinted out to a 10-0 start en route to the NFL’s

The Seymour Lady Eagles soccer team traveled to Kingsport DobynsBennett for a regional semi-final contest against and fell by a disappointing 8-2 final. It started out bad and just kept getting worse. By intermission, the Lady Eagles trailed 5-0 to the Lady Indians. Dobyns-Bennett’s lead grew to 8-0 in the second half, until a couple of late Seymour goals ended a possible Lady Eagle shutout. Seymour senior Courtney Suttles cracked the egg on the scoreboard, making it 8-1 on a penalty kick with 2:00 on the regulation clock. A few moments later, junior Jodie Wood powered in a 40-yard shot with just seconds remaining, cutting it to the final off a sophomore Kirstie Bridges assist. “Dobyns-Bennett is a very good team with good coaching, and that’s a recipe for disaster for everybody else,” said first-year Seymour coach Drew Payne. “They just whooped us.” But despite the lopsided season-ending loss, the Lady Eagles have reason to be proud of their 2009 campaign. “These girls have really adjusted to a new system really well, and I’m proud of them for that,” said

Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pursuers must make move at Talladega After the resent race in Charlotte Jimmie Johnson surged out to a 90 point lead in the Sprint Cup standings. That race was the fifth of the ten race NASCAR playoff. With a fairly comfortable lead and five races remaining Johnson faced two potentially serious stumbling blocks on his way to a fourth consecutive title. The first of those was on the half-mile bullring at Martinsville, Virginia. On that flat track a driver can find himself in the middle of a problem that he had nothing to do with the making of. A

good day can turn disastrous in the blink of an eye and large numbers of points can be lost. As it turned out, Johnson got through the event in Martinsville unscathed. For that matter, he left the Virginia track in better shape than when he got there. A solid second place run pushed his lead out

to a commanding 118 points over his Hendrick Motorsports teammate, Mark Martin. Now, Johnson and his 48 crew will face the second of those stumbling blocks this Sunday on the Talladega Superspeedway. NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s longest track is known for massive crashes called â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Big Oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; which can occur seemingly without notice and in an instant. Because of the carburetor restrictor plates mandated on this track cars tend to run in large packs. Cars packed in tight bunches while racing at high speeds

provides a recipe for disaster. Should Johnson be involved in one of these wrecks and his closest pursuers not then he could lose most or even all of his points advantage. And there is at least some reason for optimism among Johnsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rivals. Statistically speaking, Talladega is not one of his better tracks. He does have one win there but he also has had numerous finishes outside the top-10 which has led to an average finish of only 17th position. If there is to be any

place for those pursuers to make up ground, this is it. Beyond this weeks race, there are not nearly so many opportunities to stumble. There will be only three races remaining in the 2009 season and those will be held at Texas, Phoenix and Homestead. Johnson has solid statistics on those tracks. Any hopes of making up ground on this driver and team who have displayed an incredible knack for getting the job done during the stretch run will he greatly reduced if the margin remains the

same or increases after Talladega. The bottom line is that if anyone is to prevent Jimmie Johnson from winning an unprecedented and historic fourth consecutive championship they had better hope they can weave their way through â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;The Big Oneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; this weekend and finish well ahead of car 48. If not, they might as well prepare to watch yet another repeat of an all too familiar trophy presentation in Homestead. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Contact me by going to my website at RacingWithRich.com.

TKA four-year football-playing seniors are William Lakatosh, Matt Turner, David Kirkpatrick, Jon Rose, Jon Ogle and Dane Hoffmeister. These senior players are part of a core group that helped lead TKA to a school-first three-consecutive winning seasons, finishing this year with a 6-3 mark. These seniors have a four-year record of 22-17, which is the best four-years in Lions history.

TKA Lions pull off trifecta of winning seasons By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer SEYMOUR â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Academy Lions have done something no other team in the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 129-year history has been able to do ... put together three-consecutive winning seasons. After holding off a 20-point fourth-quarter rally by Riverside Christian this past Friday night to preserve a 39-27 victory, the TKA Lions (6-3) officially completed a three-year run of consecutive winning seasons. The Lions won six games each of the past three years, although the 2009 edition accomplished the feat in one less ball game. TKA had just nine games on its nonconference schedule this season after the Midsouth Conference dismantled following the 2008 campaign. Friday night against Riverside Christian, the Lions roared out to a huge 32-0 lead by intermission. TKA senior RB Jon Rose had TD runs of 30, 13 and 10 yards in the first half.

KABUL (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Eight American troops were killed in two separate bomb attacks Tuesday in southern Afghanistan, making October the deadliest month of the war for U.S. forces since the 2001 invasion to oust the Taliban. In one of the insurgent assaults, seven Americans were killed while patrolling in armored vehicles, U.S. forces spokesman Lt. Col. Todd Vician said. He said an Afghan civilian died in the same attack. The eighth American was killed in a separate bombing else-

where in the south, also while patrolling in a military vehicle, he said. The military issued a statement saying the deaths occurred during â&#x20AC;&#x153;multiple, complexâ&#x20AC;? bomb strikes. It said several troops were wounded and evacuated to a nearby medical facility, but gave no other details. Capt. Adam Weece, a spokesman for American forces in the south, said both attacks occurred in Kandahar province. In Washington, a U.S. defense official said at least one was followed by an

intense firefight with insurgents who attacked after an initial bomb went off. The official spoke on condition of anonymity because he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t authorized to release the information. The deaths bring to 55 the total number of American troops killed in October in Afghanistan. The previous high occurred in August, when 51 U.S. soldiers died and the troubled nation held the first round of its presidential election amid a wave of Taliban insurgent attacks.

BEASLEY PEST CONTROL

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Senators tussled over the cost of climate legislation Tuesday with the leading author of the bill maintaining that while energy prices will increase, inaction on global warming would cause even worse economic and security problems. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Are there some costs? Yes sir, there are some costs,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. John Kerry, D-Mass. But of the array of studies that show restricting greenhouse gases will lead to higher energy prices, he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;none of them factor in the cost of doing nothing.â&#x20AC;? Kerry was the leadoff witness as the Senate Environment and Public Works Committee began a series of marathon hearings this week on a bill that would cap greenhouse gas pollution from power plants and large industrial facilities. The bill aims to reduce emissions 80 percent by mid-century. Kerry is an author of the legislation.

Advice

Bad decision eating away at longtime preschool director

Dear Annie: I am a good person. I always try to do the right thing. But I did something stupid, and it could cost me my job and the respect I have earned. For 10 years, I have been the director of a preschool. Every member of the staff has to take 18 hours of learning inservice. One of my staff members was absent during one of the in-service exams, so I took the test for her and signed her name. I could get fired and probably should be. I am sick about it. I knew it was a mistake as soon as I mailed it in. Please tell me what to do. Should I tell my boss upfront and resign? Or do I live with the stress and pray I don’t get caught? I will never do it again, but I doubt anyone will care about that. -- This Is Not Me Dear Not You: We don’t think you will be able to live with the stress. It’s already eating you up inside, and you will forever anticipate the truth coming out. Did the absentee woman ask you to take the test for her? If so, she could lose her job, as well. You made a terrible mistake and will have to face the consequences, but there is a possibility that if you are forthcoming and sincerely sorry, you will be given another chance. You might also wish to talk this over with your clergyperson or counselor and ask for guidance. Dear Annie: Can you settle a dispute between my husband and me? “Lenny” is retired and does the majority of the housework and taking care of our cats. On weekends, I like to get up early

while Lenny sleeps in. One cat prefers to be fed at the crack of dawn, but the other two sleep late and aren’t hungry. I usually feed the one cat but not the others. I also pick up the caked-on dirty cat dishes and put them in the kitchen sink to soak. I always intend to wash them, but often get busy doing other things. When Lenny gets up and goes into the kitchen, he sees the dirty bowls in the sink and has a cow. I think he should be glad I’m getting a head start on the cleaning, but he thinks I don’t appreciate him because I leave the bowls in the sink for him to wash. That is not the case. I was taught to soak dirty dishes because it helps in the washing. Who is right? -- Dirty Debbie Dear Debbie: Soaking dishes is always a good way to remove crusted-on food, but your husband interprets it to mean you want HIM to wash them. And since he inevitably ends up doing so, we can’t argue with his logic. This could easily be resolved if you soaked the cat bowls before going to bed and washed them when you got up in the morning. Or, when your husband sees them, he simply tells you that the dishes have soaked long enough and then YOU jump right in and take care of it. This is a minor dispute, and we’re certain you can

find a way to make it less annoying. Too bad you can’t teach the cats to clean their own dishes. Dear Annie: Like “Loyal Reader in Florida,” I also think it is extremely important for everyone to find out about their extended family’s medical history. Alas, I can’t even get the most basic information, as I am adopted. I stand a better chance of receiving top secret military information from the Pentagon. I’m in my 50s, and this incomplete knowledge has had a negative impact on my medical care. May I suggest that medical records be given to adoptive parents and a way established to automatically keep these parents (and the adopted child) informed as to later developments in the biological parents’ health? For example, if the father has a heart attack when he’s older, or the mother develops breast cancer or Alzheimer’s disease decades after giving up the child, or either parent later has a genetically handicapped child, there needs to be a way to get this information to the adoptee. Our health depends upon it. -- Baby Girl Born in 1955 Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
