Man alleged to have killed son-in-law appears in court

SEVIERVILLE — A man accused of killing his son-in-law was in and out of court quickly Monday for his first public appearance after his arrest. Jimmy Robinson, 66, of Sevier County is charged with firstdegree murder in the death of James Jason Hicks. He is being held without bond at the Sevier County Jail. Robinson’s arrest on a sealed presentment came almost a year after Hicks’ body was found

by his parents April 19, 2009. Knoxville media have reported Hicks died of a gunshot wound, but local authorities have not confirmed the cause of death. District Attorney General Jimmy Dunn requested a special meeting of the grand jury April 1 to present evidence. He took the unusual step because investigators gained new information after the last regular session of the grand jury. “It was a first-degree murder case, and it was a very serious case and it was a case that needed to be handled quickly,” Dunn said.

Hicks reportedly was going through a divorce and a bitter custody dispute at the time of his murder. His wife, Wendi Leann Hicks, had alleged that he molested one of his three children and she allegedly had prevented him from seeing any of the children for almost a year prior to the murder. Sources close to the investigation say those molestation charges had been investigated and Hicks was cleared. Hicks saw two of his chilSee COURT, Page A4

Jimmy Robinson, charged with first-degree murder in the death of his son-in-law last year, is led from court after a hearing Monday.

NATIONAL PARK — From ballads to bluegrass, the melodies of the hills were on display throughout the weekend as Great Smoky Mountains National Park officials put on their sixth Music of the Mountains event. The sounds of the banjo and bass filled the Sugarlands Visitors Center on Saturday, while the strains of a Celtic echoed through the hollers from the Heritage Center in Townsend on Friday evening. The local celebration of clawhammer picking and fiddle sawing was the biggest one yet, organizer and park ranger Kent Cave said. “We were fortunate

ological progression of music. Last night, we had the Irish reels and things that really formed the basis for a lot of the mountain music. Today people are getting that old-time music sound of the mountains.” Promoting the melodic traditions of the folks who used to call what is now the national park home is an important part of the rangers’ job. Though many people think of national parks merely as places to see nature’s splendor on display, the federal lands also have an obligation to preserve the culture heritage of those areas, Cave said. “Music was such an important part of mountain people’s lives,” he explained. “Certainly it is ingrained in our culture. This is a way for us to give our visitors an opportunity to get in Se MUSIC, Page A5

Local businessman Larry Hill dead at 65 By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — Less than a week after sustaining what authorities are calling self-inflicted gunshot wounds, local businessman Larry Hill has died. Though University of Tennessee Medical Center

officials weren’t releasing information Monday on Hill, Sevierville spokesman Bob Stahlke confirmed Hill died over the weekend. Hill, 65, apparently died Sunday, just five days after he was found suffering from wounds at the Sevierville car dealership that bears his name.

Doctors at the Knoxville hospital performed surgery on Hill after he was brought there Hill by helicopter, but his condition never improved beyond critical.

Though Sevierville officials originally estimated their investigation into the incident would be closed by Monday, Stahlke said it would likely be today or Wednesday before that actually happens. In the meantime, Stahlke isn’t releasing any new information related to the incident, except to say the evi-

dence still points to selfinflicted wounds. Sevierville officers were called to Larry Hill GMC on Dolly Parton Parkway about 7:30 a.m. Wednesday after employees at the dealership found Hill. Though speculation has swirled, Stahlke See HILL, Page A4

For all voters, this will be the first time they’ll cast votes in races for individual seats on the County Commission. In the past, ballots included only a contest for the two or three seats in a given district, with all candidates lumped together in one race. This year, each position in each district will have its own race, with as many as four people running for individual seats.

KNOXVILLE (AP) — A third straight monthly increase in the Tennessee Valley Authority’s monthly fuel rate means residential bills will go up by an average of $1, starting in May. The utility’s fuel cost adjustment for billing periods starting May 1 means residential monthly bills will increase between 50 cents and $1.50, depending on usage levels. The 1 percent increase follows a 5.9 percent increase in April after a 5.3 percent increase for March.

Bristol, Va., paper wins Pulitzer Prize NEW YORK (AP) — The Bristol Herald Courier, a small paper in the coalfields of Appalachia, beat out journalism’s powerhouses to win the Pulitzer Prize for public service Monday for uncovering a scandal in which Virginia landowners were deprived of millions in natural gas royalties. The seven-reporter daily was honored for what many regard as an endangered form of journalism in this age of wrenching newspaper cutbacks — aggressive reporting on local issues. The Washington Post received four Pulitzers — for international reporting on Iraq, feature writing, commentary and criticism. The 33,000-circulation Bristol Herald Courier won for reporter Daniel Gilbert’s computer analysis that showed how a state board allowed the energy industry to funnel into an unaudited escrow fund tens of millions of dollars in royalties owed to people in one of the poorest regions of Virginia. Gilbert, 28, called the award “a hell of an honor” and said it underscores the importance of public service reporting in rural areas. With its small staff, two bottles of cheap champagne were all the newsroom needed to mark the occasion. Editor J. Todd Foster said the story required “a lot of shoe leather” and a tenacious reporter. “It’s why newspapers will continue to survive in some form,” Foster said of Gilbert’s reporting.

NEW YORK (AP) — The Dow Jones industrial average closed above 11,000 for the first time in a year and a half on investors’ rising hopes about the economy. The Dow edged up about 9 points Monday to almost 11,006. The Standard & Poor’s 500 index came within a point of hitting its own milestone of 1,200 during trading but closed just short of that mark. Analysts said the Dow’s move above 11,000 could provide a psychological boost and perhaps draw more investors to the market. “There is a huge stockpile of cash on the sidelines earning virtually nothing,” said Jack Ablin, chief investment officer at Harris Private Bank in Chicago. “Maybe this can help shake a few people into the market.” Stocks have been rising this year on growing expectations that the economy will shake off job market weakness and housing problems. A test of whether the Dow can hold the 11,000 mark will come in the next three weeks when companies report earnings. Investors also will want to see

On Monday, a loan agreement for Greece allowed U.S. investors to focus on domestic economic and corporate news, including announcements of two big deals. European Union leaders

agreed over the weekend to make loans available to Greece to help the country lower its public debt burden. The 16 countries that use the euro agreed to provide $40.5 billion to Greece if needed. The International Monetary Fund could contribute another $13.5 billion. Investors have been concerned that mounting debt in

Greece and other European nations including Spain and Portugal would stunt a global recovery. “This is clearly a positive development that the EU is identifying and dealing with what has really been it’s first real challenge,” said Alan Gayle, senior investment strategist for RidgeWorth Investments.

Alcoa narrows 1Q loss; sees improving demand DENVER (AP) — Alcoa Inc. said Monday that it narrowed its first-quarter loss as demand for some aluminum products picked up and prices improved. For the quarter that ended March 31, Alcoa reported a net loss of $201 million or 20 cents per share. That compared with a net loss of $497 million, or 61 cents a share, a year ago, when the company was struggling with the impact of the recession. Alcoa’s most recent

results include $295 million, or 29 cents a share, in one-time charges related to the health care reform law and the closing of two smelters. Revenue rose nearly 20 percent to $4.9 billion. The aluminum manufacturing giant said it expects sales to improve with the growing popularity of fuelefficient vehicles and sustainable products made with aluminum. “Our markets are gradually improving and both policy trends and consum-

er sentiment bode well for aluminum demand,” said Klaus Kleinfeld, Alcoa President and CEO. Alcoa is the first company in the Dow Jones Industrial average to issue earnings results, and its performance can reflect economic trends because of its diverse customer Chapter 7 •

base, which ranges from aerospace and construction to electronics and beverage cans. Analysts surveyed by Thomson Reuters forecast, on average, earnings of 10 cents a share on revenue of $5.24 billion. They typically exclude one-time items.

Study: Energy cuts could bring jobs CHATTANOOGA (AP) — An energy efficiency study shows that reducing Tennessee’s projected 15 percent increase in residential, commercial and industrial power demand in the next two decades can create 21,500 jobs. The study co-authored by Tennessee Valley Authority board appointee Marilyn A. Brown includes a Tennessee profile that shows the state has high residential demand compared to other states. “Tennessee consumes proportionately more coal

and nuclear energy than other states in the South,” according to the Tennessee profile. Stricter building codes, improved appliance standards and expanding the Weatherization Assistance Program are among the power-saving residential policies. Improving energy-savings features in commercial buildings, plant utility upgrades and improved combined heat and power policies are also on the to-do list. Brown, Tennessee Business Leaders for a

Voting machine inspections set

The Sevier County Election Commission will inspect the machines today prior to early voting and Election Day. The inspection for the additional early vote machines will be held at 4:30 p.m. at the Voting Machine Warehouse, 1145 Dolly Parton Parkway. The inspection for all the Election Day voting machines is still scheduled for April 27 at 4:30. There will be a zero tape available for inspection for every machine.

Clean Energy Economy cofounder Susan Richardson Williams and Applied Energy Conservation Systems President Steve O’Neil of Chattanooga discussed the Tennessee profile in a Monday conference call. Williams said the Tennessee Valley has enjoyed below average power costs and there was “not a real need for consumers to become energy efficient.” She said that is going to change due to population growth and increased demand.

Forecast for Tuesday, April 13

The report says existing energy demand in Tennessee can be reduced by about 6 percent by 2020 and by about 12 percent in 2030, which would be equal to seven power plants. Increasing energy efficiency would create 15,600 jobs by 2020 and another 5,900 jobs by 2030. “It is also really important to look at the numbers of jobs,” said Williams, a former Tennessee Valley Authority board member. “Look at what a clean energy economy can do for Tennessee.”

ATLANTA — Conan O’Brien will make his highly anticipated return to television on TBS, TVGuide.com reports. Y e s , you read that right. It had long been speculated that the redhaired funnyO’Brien m a n would land on FOX, but he has struck an agreement with the cable network for an 11 PM show that will run Monday through Thursday.

commentary

Pornography social costs staggering Are there social costs to pornography? Libertarians rush to avoid the question by preemptively declaring that the law should not regulate pornography. OK, let’s take the question of outlawing porn off the table and ask again: Does porn hurt people? The Witherspoon Institute recently gathered a groundbreaking conference of social scientists, psychiatrists, philosophers, neuroscientists and legal scholars to discuss that question, and the results have been released in a new book, “The Social Costs of Pornography” (available at socialcostsofpornography.org). Professor Mary Anne Layden, director of the Sexual Trauma and Psychopathology Program at the University of Pennsylvania, submitted a paper for this conference reviewing the scientific evidence on porn use and sexual violence. The vast majority of men who use porn are not sex offenders. Yet, men viewing sexually violent porn are more likely to say that a “rape victim suffered less and that she enjoyed it, and that women in general enjoy rape. ... Those reporting higher exposure to violent pornography are six times more likely to report having raped than those reporting low exposure,” writes Layden. Ordinary men after viewing violent porn, urged sentences for rapists only half those of men shown other kinds of images. Layden further states: “The large body of research on pornography reveals that it functions as a teacher of, a permission-giver for, and a trigger of many negative behaviors and attitudes that can severely damage not only the users but many others, including strangers.” But to me the most important potential cost of porn is its effects on ordinary men and their ordinary relationships. According to Layden: “Exposure to pornography leads men to rate their female partners as less attractive than they would have had they not been exposed and to be less satisfied with their partners’ attractiveness, sexual performance, and level of affection, and expressed a greater desire for sex without emotional involvement.” She concludes: “For males, more pornography use was associated with greater acceptance of sex outside of marriage for married individuals, greater acceptance of sex before marriage and less child-centeredness during marriage. The reduced desire for children is especially pronounced in a reduced desire for female children.” Men who use porn do not want daughters. What does that tell you about the social costs of porn? Over at National Review, one young man testified: “As a 20-year-old male college student, I am familiar with, first, the very high use of Internet pornography within my demographic (even on fairly conservative campuses), and, second, porn’s powerful effects after even light exposure.” One husband added: “Since I gave up porn my sex life with my wife has improved greatly. ... To make a long story short, I found myself working harder to woo my wife, and the result is we’ve been together more, and the times have been better, than (in) quite some time. I think she feels more loved, and that is what has translated into more physical loving. I wonder why I was never told this before. I’ve read a great deal about the harms of porn, but little about the benefits of giving it up.” Indeed. Porn disconnects the reward system of the male sex drive from the drive to master reality. Porn is nowhere near as satisfying as a real relationship with a woman, but it is a lot easier and much less fraught with the possibility of failure or humiliation. Porn use thus is an aid to sexual failure in men, and a contributor to our ongoing failure to create a culture that connects men and women, parents and children, sex and love. — Maggie Gallagher, president of the National Organization for Marriage, is known for her conservative social policy analysis of social trends and conditions.

Editorial

Miles to go... Marathon march an endurance test, and a worthy cause There are a number of ways for people to support worthy causes. But some of the ROTC cadets at the University of Tennessee literally go the extra mile to show their compassion and support for a fallen comrade. Saturday’s third annual Mountain Man March in Gatlinburg will draw between 300 and 400 participants. Many of them will be wearing full combat gear and carrying 35 to 40 pounds in their backpacks. With combat boots, a canteen of water and a lot of guts and determination, they’ll attempt to complete a 26.2-mile marathon hike through hilly terrain. It will take them six to seven hours to finish. Why do it? It’s a good endurance

test, for one. It builds character. It makes them have to work hard to pass the military’s physical training test. And it supports the late 1st Lt. Frank Walkup, a graduate of the UT program who was killed in Iraq on June 16, 2007. Walkup was serving as a platoon leader in Rashaad, Iraq, when an improvised explosive device detonated near his position. The cadets decided three years ago to honor Walkup with a memorial marathon march, and they chose Gatlinburg because it guaranteed a rugged, challenging course. There are three lengths participants may choose: 6.2 miles, 13.1 miles and the marathon 26.2 miles. Just finishing the 26.2-mile course takes enormous fortitude and character. Depending

upon the weather, marchers could be overcome by dehydration, blisters, twisted ankles and sheer fatigue. To finish — well, that’s a remarkable personal victory. On Friday, the area Gold Star Mothers — mothers of soldiers who died serving their country — will be honored during a ceremony at the aquarium plaza. The marathon starts Saturday morning, and that night there will be a parking lot party for the participants. Congratulations to all who will take part in the marathon, whether actually walking the course or helping to put it on. Many of those walking the marathon will be leading our military in the years to come. They deserve our support and our gratitude.

Political view

Public forum Opponents of opening prayer try to keep God out of everything

Editor: In response to the furor of allowing prayer at government meetings, these people who oppose prayer to open meetings contradict themselves. The separation of church and state was established so that government could not squash the freedom of religion. Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion. This in fact means government cannot tell people how to wor-

ship because the next line says, “or prohibiting the free exercise thereof.” Our forefathers came to this country because the governments in other countries were trying to tell them how they could worship. The first Thanksgiving they had a feast together and thanked God for the bounty of their harvest. All these people trying to keep God out of everything need to read their Bible, if they have one. They took prayer and any mention of God out of schools and now there is more violence in schools than at any time in history,

When I went to school we had the freedom of prayer and meetings where they were not afraid to mention God. These people trying to keep God out of everything, I would label them as devil’s disciples. Every one of them should get on their knees and beg God for forgiveness. I say enough! This Washington group should have no say as to how County Commission conducts their meetings. More power to Larry Waters and Sevier County Commission. Roy Cole Sevierville

Freshman Cate gives West first IMAC loss Good defense lifts Bears to 9-3 win over West Trojans By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — A great performance on the mound, complimented by a sparkling defensive performance helped the Sevier County Smoky Bears to a 9-3 win over the Morristown West Trojans Monday evening at Cliff Davis Field. The Trojans, previously unbeaten in District 2-AAA, were plagued by horrendous defense throughout the game, allowing the Bears (15-8, 7-2) the comfortable margin of victory. “That is was not (the real) Morristown West. That’s about as bad as they can play,” SCHS coach Lance Traywick said. “They will be a much better team tomorrow night. They’ll be a totally different club. If our boys aren’t ready for that it could be a really long ride home.”

Jason Davis/The Mountain Press

Sevier County freshman Dillon Cate fires a pitch homeward in the sixth inning against IMAC rival Morristown West. The freshman gave up just three runs in seven innings to earn the win for the Smoky Bears. The team travels to West today to try for the sweep of the Trojans. The Smoky Bears manufactured a run in the bottom of the first to take an early lead. Senior Michael Farragut found his way to first by way of an error, then stole second and advanced to third on a throwing error.

Seconds later Zach Flynn drove him in with a sacrifice fly to make it 1-0. The third inning saw three more Bears’ runs cross the plate. One came by way of a Brandon Houser RBI single, and the others came

on a Farragut flyball to left field, which was botched, allowing two Bears to score and make the tally 4-0. West struck for two in the top of the third on a two-run double, but Sevier County exploded for four more in the bottom of the

frame to give their freshman pitcher Dillon Cate some breathing room. That rally was spurred by a Cate RBI single on a nice hit-and-run call with Zach Flynn on second. Moments later catcher Kyle Pope delivered an

RBI base knock, and two more runs scored in the inning on a passed ball and an infield error to make it 8-2. Sevier County’s last run of the game came in the bottom of the fourth when Flynn connected for his fifth home run of the season. The opposite field shot cleared the 340 sign in right-center, much to the delight of the Smoky Bears’ bench. Morristown was able to add another run in the sixth, but Cate stayed calm and closed out the game for the win. “How about freshman Dillon Cate coming in and just dominating on the mound?” Traywick asked. “He did a great job. You can’t say enough about him, and the guys behind him did what they were supposed to do.” Among the highlight plays from the defense were a Charlie Fields’ running catch in center with his back to the infield and some great plays at second base from sophomore Kelby Carr. The Bears will try to complete the sweep of West Tuesday on the road. mpsports@themountainpress.com

SEVIERVILLE — First-year District 2-AAA foes Sevier County and Seymour split their first regular season match Monday at City Park, as the Bears won the boys’ overall match and Seymour’s Lady Eagles topped the Bearettes. Seymour’s girls ran through a young Sevier County squad, dropping just one match in an 8-1 win. The Lady Eagles’ one through five seeds — Andrea Markowitz, Ty Wallen, Kelsey Fleming, Karla Carodeguas and Alexis Pierce each won fairly convincingly over Sevier County, but the Bearette six-seed Grace Huskey was able to salvage one singles win for the Purple and White.

SC softballers take two against Austin-East By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — The Sevier County Smoky Bears softball team got the monkey off their backs Monday afternoon at SCHS. After losing their first 10 ballgames of the season, the team dominated a double-header with the Lady Roadrunners of Austin East, winning 10-0 and 6-3. “It feels good (getting the first wins),” SC coach Jill Kroll said. “And hopefully we can build on it the rest of the week. “We’re a young team with just one senior. If we keep with it and keep building on things, we’re going to get better.” The ladies got off to an early start in game one, as Jessica Hurst drilled a 2-run double early, and two more runners found the plate after costly passed balls to make the tally 4-0.

“We’re a young team with just one senior. If we keep with it and keep building on things, we’re going to get better.”

Sevier County second baseman Melissa Finazzo makes the flip to first base for an out during her team’s 10-0 win over Austin-East on Monday. Kaitlyn Reilly and Kaitlyn Harris added RBI singles in the third, and more passed balls plauged A-E, pushing SCHS out to a 9-0 lead. The game ended one

frame later thanks the the mercy rule, 10-0. “It felt good (to keep A-E off the scoreboard) — first shutout, you know,” Kroll said. The second game was

closer, 6-3, but a big game from Reilly, including two RBIs, and a Jaden McClure RBI-double helped spur the team on to the win. Brittany Ramsey pitched

both games, striking out a total of 11 strikeouts over nine innings pitched. “(A-E) has got a couple kids that can swing, and they can move around the bases. They were aggressive and we were lackadaisical, so that took advantage of it,” Kroll said. The team will take the diamond again today against Morristown East. Then they’ll face Jefferson County Wednesday and host a double-header with Cosby on Thursday. mpsports@themountainpress.com

District 3-AA foe Gibbs down the Highlanders 14-1 By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer GATLINBURG - The Gatlinburg-Pittman Highlanders baseball team entered Monday’s showdown against Gibbs riding a hot streak with four victories in five recent contests. But a 14-1 five-inning loss to the District 3-AA top dog Eagles cooled off the homestanding Blueand-Gold squad. G-P starting pitcher Dusty Bilbrey suffered the loss, giving up 14 runs on 18 hits in four innings of work, striking out three and walking three. Reliever Daniel Roberts pitched the top of the fifth and retired the Gibbs side in order with two Ks and a pop out. Trailing 9-0 in the bottom of the third inning, the Highlanders (5-8) avoided a shutout when senior catcher Drew Barton drove an RBI shot down the right field line, scoring Boone Bryant from second base on the play to cut the Eagles edge to 9-1. That’s as good as it would get for G-P the rest of the night. The Highlanders had five hits in the game, but no G-P slugger could manage a multi-hit night. Gibbs (14-4) jumped out 2-0 in the top of the first inning, added four more runs in the top of the second, two more in the top of

About the Data: Most of the data presented in this table is from testing done between January 1, and December 31, 2009. We monitor for some contaminants less than once a year, and for these contaminants, the date of the last sample is shown in the table. * Total Coliform Bacteria = If MCL in CCR Units is greater than 1, results would be positive. ** Turbidity = To comply with the TT, 95% of turbidity samples must be less than 03 N.T.U. Our filter plant met this standard in 99.9% of samples taken during 2009. 100% Did not exceed 0.3 N.T.U. *** TOC (Total Organic Carbon) = During calendar year 2009, our system was required to achieve a 35% reduction in TOC (Total Organic Carbon). We met the treatment technique requirement for Total Organic Carbon. ***** Trihalomethanes = While our drinking water meets EPA’s standard for trihalomethanes, it does contain low levels. Some people who drink water containing trihalomethanes in excess of the MCL over many years may experience problems with their liver, kidneys, or central nervous systems, and may have an increased risk of getting cancer.

Advice

Parents can only hope pot-smoking, college-dropout son can see the light

Zits

Blondie

Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: Our 20-year-old son, “Kevin,” worries us terribly. He was kicked out of college because of marijuana use and for the past year has couch-surfed, backpacked and hitchhiked. He visited over the holidays, and although he didn’t smoke pot in our home, he did take a couple of hour-long walks to smoke a joint while talking to friends on his cell phone. He claims it is normal behavior among collegeaged people and politely told us we should get used to it. Kevin doesn’t see returning to college as particularly useful, since recent graduates have lots of debt and haven’t been able to find work. Obtaining any sort of job has been very difficult in our area. He insists companies that hire based on a college degree are behind the times, and that life experience is more important because everything you need to know is on the Internet. He says no one cares about learning in college. Being college-educated parents, we are concerned for Kevin’s future. He is an avid reader and watches online seminars from such places as MIT and Stanford on all sorts of subjects. Should we just ignore his occasional marijuana use? Is there any way to convince him to go back to school before all his savings are used up and he ends up homeless? -- Frustrated Parents of a Former High-Achiever Dear Frustrated: So Kevin is a smart kid, but pot has turned him into a slacker, and he justifies his irresponsibility by saying “everybody does it.” This is not an uncom-

mon adolescent attitude. Right now, it would be a waste of your money and the college’s resources for him to return to school, although he may be more willing in a year or two. Seeing the world is a time-honored tradition for young adults who don’t know what to do with their lives, and it’s possible Kevin will gain the maturity and perspective he needs. Ask him to keep in touch, and let’s hope he doesn’t get arrested. Dear Annie: My husband, children and I enjoy taking “one tank” car trips and spending a few nights at a hotel and exploring the area. We do not live close to family, so how do we handle it when my husband’s family members invite themselves on one of our trips? The last time we were out of town, my husband’s sister asked where we went, and he told her. She then said, “We would love to go next time. Wouldn’t it be fun for the cousins? When’s the next trip so we can come along?” She put us on the spot and made it impossible to say no without hurting her feelings. These trips are special times for us to get away and be with our children. -- Out of Gas Dear Out of Gas: Your husband should be the one to tell his sister that these trips are for his children to have “family time,” although he’d be happy to give them point-

ers on how to do it on their own. And once in a while, you might consider inviting them to come along. Who knows? It could be fun. But be sure they travel in their own car and get their own hotel room. Dear Annie: This is in response to “Refuse To Be an Enabler,” whose parents are upset because she won’t loan money to her “mean, lying drunk” of a sister. Bravo for her. Unfortunately, her parents’ disapproval is taking a toll on her physical health, as well as her mental and spiritual wellbeing. She can learn to take care of all three of these in Al-Anon. While counseling is helpful for one on one, to hear the experience, strength and hope from others who have walked the walk is invaluable. The support offered through Al-Anon is priceless. For more information, readers can visit the website, al-anon.alateen. org, where you can hear members share through podcasts. -- Al-Anon Public Outreach Coordinator, Connecticut Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Hitler book, weapons uncovered in raids DETROIT (AP) — Federal agents investigating what they describe as a Christian militia bent on violence against police seized suspected crack cocaine and steroids, weapons, gas masks and a book of Adolf Hitler’s speeches during raids of members’ homes last month, according to search warrant records. The raids were conducted over a 4 1/2-hour span in Michigan, Ohio and Indiana on the night of March 27. Authorities recovered hand grenade instructions and schematics, a container of potassium chlorate and other items during a raid that night at the southern Michigan home of David Stone, the suspected leader of the Hutaree. Federal prosecutors say Stone and eight other members of the militia plotted the mass killings of police officers in the hope of sparking an anti-government revolution. They are charged with seditious conspiracy, or plotting to levy war against the U.S., and attempting to use weapons of mass destruction. The Associated Press on Monday reviewed dozens of pages of search warrant records that were filed last week in federal court. They items seized include: — Several cardboard tubes including two “with green/cannon fuse;” a 6-by3/4-inch-gallon nipple with end caps; a two-page document about a “funnel shape charge;” a 2005 daily planner book; a grenade holder; a Hutaree flag; three DVDs labeled “Waco”; a notebook detailing the doctrine and ranks of the Hutaree; and gas masks; at Stone’s trailer home in Lenawee County’s Dover Township. — Substances believed to be crack cocaine and steroids and a lock pick set at the mobile home of suspected Hutaree member Kristopher Sickles in Sandusky, Ohio. — A copy of “My New Order” by Hitler; audio of “The Turner Diaries,” a novel that is popular with white supremacists; a samurai sword; a jeweled dagger; a ballistic helmet; an intrusion detection machine; and a CD titled “Explosives, Ordnance and Demolition;” at the twostory home of suspected Hutaree member Thomas Piatek in Whiting, Ind. The search warrant records did not explain why some of the items had been seized. At a March 31 detention hearing, Assistant U.S. Attorney Ronald Waterstreet said Stone had 20 cardboard tubes that could be used to make improvised explosive devices.

NATION/WORLD BRIEFS

Ukraine to give up nuke material

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama optimistically opened a 47-nation nuclear summit Monday, boosted by Ukraine’s announcement that it will give up its weapons-grade uranium. More sobering: Obama’s counterterrorism chief pointedly warned that al-Qaida is vigorously pursuing material and expertise for a bomb. Ukraine’s decision dovetailed with Obama’s goal of securing all vulnerable nuclear materials worldwide within four years — an objective that the White House hopes will be endorsed by all summit countries at a closing session Tuesday, even if the means to accomplish it are unclear. Before formally opening the summit with a reception and working dinner, Obama held a series of one-on-one meetings with leaders from China, Jordan, Ukraine, Armenia and Malaysia. Presidential aides billed the summit as the largest gathering of world leaders hosted by an American president since the 1945 conference in San Francisco that founded the United Nations. Associated Press

A roadside memorial to the 29 miners who died in the explosion at Massey Energy Co.’s Upper Big Branch mine in Montcoal, W.Va., a week ago Monday stands along Coal River Road in Dry Creek, W.Va. on Monday.

Crews re-enter W.Va. mine to recover nine more bodies By TIM HUBER Associated Press Writer CHARLESTON, W.Va. — Searchers went back inside a wrecked West Virginia coal mine Monday to pull out more bodies as federal investigators prepared to launch their probe of the explosion that killed 29 men in the worst U.S. coal mining disaster since 1970. While some of the dead have been laid to rest, nine bodies remained in Massey Energy Co.’s Upper Big Branch mine in Montcoal. Efforts to recover them were stalled when high levels of volatile methane gas forced crews out of the mine Sunday. After the tunnels were ventilated, one team entered around midnight Sunday and another went in about 5 a.m. Monday, state mine office spokeswoman Jama Jarrett said. A team of federal investigators is expected to arrive Monday to start trying to figure out what caused the explosion. Richmond, Va.-based Massey has been under scrutiny for a string of safety violations at the mine, though CEO

Don Blankenship has defended the company’s record and disputed accusations that he puts profits ahead of safety. Authorities have said high methane levels may have played a role in the disaster. Massey has been repeatedly cited and fined for problems with the system that vents methane and for allowing combustible dust to build up. Hours after the blast, the company flew Gov. Joe Manchin back from a Florida vacation on one of its planes, Manchin’s office said Monday. The governor’s top lawyer said use of the company’s plane was acceptable because it was an emergency situation and a flight on a state plane couldn’t immediately be arranged. Mourning continued Monday, exactly a week after the explosion, with

a wreath-laying ceremony at the state Capitol and a moment of silence planned for 3:30 p.m. President Barack Obama on Monday ordered all U.S. flags in the state flown at half-staff until sunset Sunday. The magnitude of the tragedy is also prompting the state panel that writes mining safety rules to seek a greater role in the investigation. Typically, the state Board of Coal Mine Health and Safety reviews state and federal mine inspectors’ reports after they complete an investigation of a fatality. This time, the group of union and industry officials wants to join the inspectors underground during the probe, and it’s holding an emergency meeting Tuesday to map out its role, administrator Joel Watts said.

U.S. troops kill 4 Afghans on bus

KANDAHAR, Afghanistan (AP) — Afghans burned tires and chanted “Death to America” after U.S. troops fired Monday on a civilian bus near Kandahar, killing four people and wounding more than a dozen. Afghanistan’s president accused NATO of violating its commitment to safeguard civilian lives. The attack enraged Afghan officials and the public in Kandahar, the Taliban’s birthplace, and dealt a blow to U.S. and NATO efforts to win popular support for a coming offensive to drive the insurgents from the biggest city in the south. NATO expressed regret for the loss of civilian lives and said it was investigating. Nearly 200 Afghans blocked highway where the shooting occurred, burning tires, firing weapons and chanting “Death to America” and other slogans.

Russia: Human error in fatal crash

WARSAW, Poland (AP) — Russian investigators suggested human error may have been to blame in the plane crash that killed the Polish president and 95 others, saying Monday were no technical problems with the Soviet-made plane. The Tu-154 went down Saturday while trying to land in dense fog near Smolensk airport in western Russia. All aboard were killed, including President Lech Kaczynski and dozens of Polish political, military and religious leaders. They had been traveling in the Polish government-owned plane to attend a memorial at nearby Katyn forest for thousands of Polish military officers executed 70 years ago by Josef Stalin’s secret police.
