There was little fanfare when the Hatch Act was signed in to law in the waning days of George W. Bush’s presidency in 2009, but the federal law has since created some waves among local governments across Tennessee. Lawsuits related to the legislation, which mandates those who work jobs funded by federal dollars not hold elective office, are pending in several counties, including Sevier and Knox. Those lawsuits have candidates possible affected by the law in limbo with early voting already started. The local lawsuit calls for 15 candidates who are employees of the county and another the plaintiffs claim works on county contracts be removed from the ballot for the May 4 primaries, for which voting started Wednesday. Additionally, the suit calls for the firing of several of those candidates from their county jobs. For some reason, the suit names three commissioners who have retired from their county jobs and leaves off two challengers who are employees of local government. According to the Web site of the Office of the Special Counsel of the United States, “The Hatch Act restricts the political activity of individuals principally employed by state or local executive agencies and who work in connection with programs financed See QUESTION, Page A5

March For Babies raises more than $50K for MOD By JEFF FARRELL Staff writer

PIGEON FORGE — The drizzly weather didn’t stop dozens of people from completing circuits of Patriot Park Saturday morning for the March For Babies. The event is a fundraiser for the Sevier County March of Dimes. The organization, which is famous for its efforts to eradicate polio, gives money for care of newborns and neonatal care and research into addressing health risks for infants. Laurel Roberts, communications director for the group, said the fundraiser was a success. “We had about 40 peo-

While there is no specific prohibition in local, state or federal law — though the federal Hatch Act has created some questions — of county employees holding elected positions that oversee their departments, there seems to be plenty of suspicion locally about the high number of County Commissioners with county jobs. Some have equated the situation to asking the fox to watch the henhouse, pointing out commissioners vote on everything from salaries in their departments to who leads those offices. The officials, meanwhile, defend holding their elected posts, pointing out the voters know the situation and still have elected them. Of the 25 current county commissioners, at least eight of them work directly for the county at least parttime, and two are retired from county jobs, according to information filed with state elections officials. Additionally, five of the challengers in the primary are county employees. That has some local folks concerned. “Since county commissioners are supposed to be answerable to the citizens they serve rather than their county bosses, we need to know which commissioners running for reelection work for the counSee OPINIONS, Page A5

ple, so we’re every pleased,” Roberts said. “After it’s all said and done, this should raise about $55,000 today.” Local contributors will see a good return on their investment. The state overall gets more money back from March of Dimes than it gives to the national organization, she said, and East Tennessee drew more grant money last year than the other parts of the state. John Parker took a seat in the shelter but was watching his grandson, Parker, run around the track with his sonin-law, Phillip Troutman. Jeff Farrell/The Mountain Press John Parker explained his Walkers at the March For Babies Saturday showed they knew daughter, Amy, and Phillip what thee event was all about.

PF accepts higher bids for services Officials: Lower offers didn’t meet city’s needs By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer PIGEON FORGE — City officials twice opted not to take the lowest price offered for needed services at its meeting last Monday, both times explaining that the bidder with the cheapest prices did not meet the city’s needs. The actions came on items presented by the Fire Department and concerned design of the unit’s new station on Veterans Boulevard and the purchase of a tanker truck. The City Commission was asked to consider hiring a firm to complete a federally required environmental assessment on the property, which is located adjacent to Dollywood’s Splash Country. There were three bids from companies hoping to get the job, including from S&ME, an engineering firm that has a long relationship of completing Pigeon Forge projects. In its base bid, Louisville-based S&ME was well below the other two companies with an estimated cost of $7,104, compared to the $9,300 bid from Altamont Environmental of Asheville and California-based UPS Corp.’s $29,109. However, S&ME was the only company to include a contingency fund — money that would only be used if the engineers ran into anything on the property that complicated the job.

With that addition, the S&ME bid was $10,119, more than the one from Altamont. SRA Architects partner Mike Smelcer acknowledged that, but said the city has a “history” of working with S&ME. “S&ME has performed services for the city of Pigeon Forge on other projects and we are familiar with their work,” a letter from SRA read. “The other firms, we are not familiar with their work.” The S&ME bid was approved unanimously. The fire department already owns a tanker truck. Ten companies submitted bids, with the commission approving Chief Tony Waston’s recommendation to buy the truck from 4 Guys Inc. The company’s $199,973 estimate includes a 2011 Freightliner Tanker pump and a 1,800-gallon tank. Additionally, 4 Guys included several pieces of equipment — such as stainless steel doors and scene lights — that will help firefighters, but were not included in the request for bids. Having evaluated the offerings from each company, a committee assembled to consider the matter opted to recommend the 4 Guys bid to the commissioners, despite the fact there were three trucks offered cheaper. Watson pointed out several of those less expensive trucks weren’t up to the standards asked for by the department, and information he presented to the commission indicated only two of the companies’ offers would fall in line with require-

ments set forth under a federal grant that will pay 95 percent of the total cost. Of those two, the truck specified by 4 Guys met the department’s demands, while the one submitted by Midwest Fire Equipment had a smaller engine than was requested. During the session, the group also voted to approve: n A rezoning request for property between Pine Mountain and McMahan Hollow roads owned by Fairtenn LLC from R-1 (low-density residential) to C-4 (planned unit commercial) (second reading) n Property tax adjustments for 2006, 2007, 2008 and 2009 n A request to donate excess books to the Friends of the Pigeon Forge Public Library for their annual sale n An agreement with The Nature Conservancy to purchase wetland mitigation credits from Shady Valley Wetland Mitigation Bank for the construction of the new trolley depot n An agreement with Allison Pelham Interiors for interior design services for the new fire station at a cost of $8,800 n An agreement with Allison Pelham Interiors for furniture and fixture services for the new fire station at a cost of $6,700 n Purchase of fire hoses n Purchase of wildland fire equipment n Purchase of a breathing air compressor from Breathing Air Systems at a cost of $40,000.

Lonesome Valley Road relocation again tops agenda for BOMA By JEFF FARRELL Staff writer

SEVIERVILLE — The possible relocation of Lonesome Valley Road is once again the main topic for the Board of Mayor and Aldermen. The board approved the measure on two readings at its last meeting, despite an ongoing conflict between the developers asking to move the road and residents who live nearby. It has asked the parties to meet and seek a resolution, but the matter is up for its final vote Monday. If it’s approved, the developers would have the go-ahead to begin building a new section of road on property they own, moving the route away from the Little Pigeon River so they can build along the water. The board has table the matter briefly in the hopes of seeing the groups reach a resolution before it makes a decision. All of the road that would be relocated is surrounded on both sides by property owned by the development group. If the measure is approved, the existing route would remain open until work on the new one is completed. It would have to meet all current city regulations. Also Monday, the board will consider on first reading the annexation of property on Country Meadows Drive. n jfarrell@themountainpress.com

Obama predicts fresh crisis without new financial rules By DARLENE SUPERVILLE Associated Press Writer

Associated Press

The volcano in southern Iceland’s Eyjafjallajokull glacier sends ash into the air Saturday. The Icelandic volcano that has kept much of Europe land-bound is far from finished spitting out its grit.

Ash may hover for days over uncertain Europe By ANGELA CHARLTON Associated Press Writer PARIS — The Icelandic volcano that has kept much of Europe land-bound is far from finished spitting out its grit, and offered up new mini-eruptions Saturday that raise concerns about longer-term damage to world air travel and trade. Facing days to come under the volcano’s unpredictable, ashy plume, Europeans are looking at temporary airport layoffs and getting creative with flight patterns to try to weather this extraordinary event. Modern Europe has never seen such a travel disruption. Air space across a swath from Britain to Ukraine was closed and set to stay that way until Sunday or Monday in some countries, affecting airports from New Zealand to San Francisco. Millions of passengers have had plans foiled or delayed. Activity in the volcano at the heart of this increased early Saturday, and showed no sign of abating. “There doesn’t seem to be an end in sight,” Icelandic geologist Magnus

Tumi Gudmundsson told The Associated Press on Saturday. “The activity has been quite vigorous overnight, causing the eruption column to grow.” Scientists say that because the volcano is situated below a glacial ice cap, the magma is being cooled quickly, causing explosions and plumes of grit that can be catastrophic to plane engines, depending on prevailing winds. In Iceland, winds dragged the ashes over new farmland, to the southwest of the glacier, causing farmers to scramble to secure their cattle and board up windows. With the sky blackened out and the wind driving a fine, sticky dust, dairy farmer Berglind Hilmarsdottir teamed up with neighbors to round her animals and get them to shelter. The ash is toxic — the fluoride causes longterm bone damage that makes teeth fall out and bones break. “This is bad. There are no words for it,” said Hilmarsdottir, whose pastures near the town of Skogar were already covered in a gray paste of ash. Forecasters say light

prevailing winds in Europe — and large amounts of unmelted glacial ice above the volcano — mean that the situation is unlikely to change quickly. “Currently the U.K. and much of Europe is under the influence of high pressure, which means winds are relatively light and the dispersal of the cloud is slow,” said Graeme Leitch, a meteorologist at Britain’s National Weather Service. “We don’t expect a great deal of change over the next few days.” A Dutch geologist who is in Iceland observing the volcano, Edwin Zanen, described it to Dutch state broadcaster NOS: “We’re at 25 kilometers (16 miles) distance from the crater now. We’re looking at a sun-soaked ice shelf, and above it is looming a cloud of ashes of oh, 4 to 5 kilometers (2.5 to 3 miles) high. There are lightening flashes in it. It’s a real inferno we’re looking at. “There’s absolutely no sign that the thing is calming down. On the contrary, we can see that at this moment it’s extraordinarily active,” he said.

Obama cancels trip to Poland WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama scrapped plans to travel to Poland on Saturday for the funeral of Poland’s president because of hazardous flying conditions caused by the volcanic ash cloud over Europe. Obama said the U.S. ambassador to Poland, Lee Feinstein, would represent the United States at the service Sunday in Krakow for Lech Kaczynski. The White House announcement came about six hours before Obama was scheduled to depart on the overnight flight. Obama called Poland’s acting president, Bronislaw Komorowski, with the news that the trip was off, citing fallout from the volcano in Iceland.

ril s Ap

Kaczynski and 95 others, including numerous lawmakers, the central bank governor, the commanders of the country’s armed forces and the head of its Olympic committee, died in a plane crash April 10 near Russia’s Katyn forest, site of a World War II massacre of Polish officers. Obama said in a state-

ment that he would support the Polish people in any way he can as they recover from the loss of so many leaders and officials. He said the late president and others who died were close friends of the United States. “The American people will never forget the lives they led,” Obama said.

WASHINGTON — The U.S. is destined to endure a new economic crisis that sticks taxpayers with the bill unless Congress tightens oversight of the financial industry, President Barack Obama said Saturday. The overhaul is the next major piece of legislation that Obama wants to sign into law this year, but solid GOP opposition in the Senate is jeopardizing that goal. “Every day we don’t act, the same system that led to bailouts remains in place, with the exact same loopholes and the exact same liabilities,” Obama said in his weekly radio and Internet address. “And if we don’t change what led to the crisis, we’ll doom ourselves to repeat it. “Opposing reform will leave taxpayers on the hook if a crisis like this ever happens again,” the president said. A proposal that Senate Democrats are readying for debate creates a mechanism for liquidating large financial companies to avoid a meltdown. For the first time, the government would regulate derivatives, those financial instruments whose value depends on

an underlying asset, such as mortgages or stocks. Derivatives can help hedge risks. But derivatives can produce steep losses, or huge profits, if the value of their underlying asset sinks. The proposal also would create a council to detect threats to the financial system and set up a consumer protection agency to police people’s dealings with financial institutions. On Friday, Obama promised to veto the bill if it doesn’t regulate the market for derivatives, which contributed to the nation’s economic problems after their value plummeted during the housing crisis. But Democrats haven’t agreed on how far such regulation should go, and all Senate Republicans are united against the bill. That opposition complicates Democratic efforts to get the 60 votes necessary to overcome likely GOP procedural roadblocks. Republicans contend that a provision creating a $50 billion fund for dismantling banks considered “too big to fail” would continue government bailouts of Wall Street. Obama administration officials say such a fund is unnecessary and they want Senate Democrats to remove it.

able. The timetable calls for the Arrowmont task force, chaired by May and including mostly board members, to make its report to the full Arrowmont board in May. The Arrowmont board will make a decision on the three proposals by August or September, and the report from the Pi Beta Phi land study group won’t factor into what Arrowmont decides, board chairwoman Mary Ann Hruska said. Hruska, a Pi Beta Phi member for 30 years, talked candidly about the strained relationship between the school and the fraternity. “The leadership of Pi Beta Phi sees this land as dollars,” she said. Leadership in the fraternity is ignoring the long history connecting the two, she said. Pi Beta Phi has made it clear the land is for sale, that it is moving its main philanthropic focus from Arrowmont to literacy. One possibility for the property would call for some income-producing activity on the Parkway frontage, either private business or maybe a heritage museum. The frontage includes Arrowcraft. Waters thinks there should be a strong effort made to get the fraternity to extend the lease past 2012. A long-term lease would cost $100,000 a year in rent, the fraternity has made clear. A lease extension

would buy time for the local partnership to be firmed up, appraisals completed and negotiations to go forward, Waters said. Waters, Cindy Ogle and others were part of a conference call a few weeks ago with mMry Tatum, Grand Council president of Pi Beta Phi. In it she made clear all proposals and ideas for the land would be open for discussion, Waters said. One idea put forward would be for the community task force to have the right of first refusal on any offer for the land. Other points made during the Wednesday meeting: n Arrowmont has to do a better job marketing itself to the community and to visitors. Ideas included making it a destination, making it attractive to conventions and retreats (there is lodging on the campus), a museum and partnerships with schools and colleges. n A capital campaign must be done in the next few years, if the school remains where it is. n The Sevier school system is raising $150,000 to start a pilot arts magnet school next April, a 10-week program with 30 or so students. n A drive to seek national corporate donors and partners need to be made. n svoit@themountainpress.com

Allen, who works in the That’s particularly true in Sevier County Highway the Sheriff’s Department, Department, is named as which claims the majority a defendant in the suit. of the candidates in the suit. However, the special coun-

sel’s observation doesn’t seem to hold locally. “The road department does not receive any federal funding whatsoever,� Superintendent Jonas Smelcer told The Mountain Press. “We received one grant for striping back in the 1980s, but that was administered by the state.� The suit also names several candidates who are or were employed by the school system. The special counsel’s interpretation of the law stipulates that those employed by “educational institutions� are not covered by its provisions. It remains to be seen if the legal opinion will include county school systems. Another defendant who might get a pass is Commissioner Kent Woods, who runs a private contracting firm that the plaintiffs claim gets enough county

work to disqualify him from seeking elected office. The Hatch Act, however, does not describe independent contractors as those who fall under its purview, and the County Commission doesn’t vote on any contracts Woods receives from the county. Additionally, it seems likely County Mayor Larry Waters, who is named in the suit, will also not be affected. Knoxville attorney Herb Moncier argues Waters can’t run because he oversees all county government, including all the federal grants administered locally. The Hatch Act specifically exempts “an individual holding public elective office ... when the elective office is the position which would otherwise subject the employee to the restriction of the Hatch Act.�

OPINIONS

a county employee should not matter.� Commissioner Tommy McGaha, an instructor at the Hardin Alternative Learning Center, emphasized that the voters have the opportunity to vote against county employees such as himself. “As for elections, we should let everyone who meets the state requirements for that office run and let you, the people, decide who you want to serve you in that office,� McGaha wrote. Those county employees and retirees were joined by eight others who worry such a policy could restrict the best government. “I believe that every citizen has the right to run for an elected office,� Seat 4C candidate Roger Radel said. “It is up to the voters to decide whom they want in office. Where they are employed is not the issue; it’s what kind of a leader

they are that is important.� Other candidates hold to the “If it ain’t broke, don’t fix it� axiom. “I don’t think there has been a real problem,� Seat 8A challenger Troy Sellars wrote. “Most people know when they vote for someone that they are employed by the county. If they took issue with it they would not vote for that person.� Greg Haggard, Seat 6A candidate and Seymour High School assistant principal, is the lone county employee/candidate not outright opposed to a poli-

cy, instead offering his call for a vote on the issue. “I believe this is a question that the people of Sevier County should answer,� he said. “It is their government and they should be able to decide that issue.� On the other side, Commissioner Gene Byrd worries not having a policy could lead to trouble. “Nepotism and limitation of county employees from holding office policies are needed to limit the perception for conflict of interests,� Byrd said. Seat 1B candidate Greg

Bullock agreed. “I think that guidelines should be set and enforced regarding county employees holding a public office where he or she will be in a sense their own bosses and be unbiased when making crucial decisions,� Bullock said. “For instance, a school teacher would not be allowed to run for School Board. Why should a county employee be allowed to run for County Commission and get two paychecks from the same employer?� n dhodges@themountainpress.com

ty and which have immediate family members working for the county,� Seymour resident Lois Thomas wrote in a recent letter to The Mountain Press. “We also need to know whether they and their relatives received their employment before or after they were elected.� While questions about how the federal Hatch Act might affect county races await answers, one thing appears certain: Both state and local law will be of little help if county employees hold elected office and, if they do, how they must act. As was discovered during a debate about the issue within the last two years, state law dictates that those folks should be certain to vote not in their own best interests but those of their constituents. Even when county employees are asked to consider the budgets that include their own salaries, state law dictates that they can vote provided they read a brief statement promising to consider what’s best for the county, not themselves. There are no local regulations. Other governments in East Tennessee, including Knox County last year, have adopted ordinances that restrict county employees from holding elected post. That’s not the case in Sevier County; such a policy hasn’t even been considered. Officials have insisted it’s not needed, arguing citizens should have the opportunity to elect whomever they think will best serve them. Excluding county employees simply because of their jobs could eliminate some of the best public servants available, they maintain. That opinion seems to win out among the 30 County Commission candidates who responded to a Mountain Press questionnaire, which included a question about a policy that would address county employees holding office. The responses were over-

whelmingly against such a policy, with 20 of the candidates indicating they would likely oppose such a change. Only nine supported it and one said citizens should vote on the matter, something others who were for or against the move also said. Not surprisingly, all but one of the current or former county employees who responded oppose such a rule, with the other one saying he wants a countywide vote. The 12 against present varied explanations. “If the County Commission voted in a nepotism policy, it would only affect a few departments, because elected officials choose to run their departments by their own rules,� Commissioner and Sheriff’s Department employee Phil King wrote. “I feel like everyone has a right to run for office if they so choose; being

Corker calls AARP damaging NASHVILLE(AP) — Tennessee Republican Sen. Bob Corker said Friday he will never join the AARP because of the group’s role earlier this year in helping defeat a bipartisan task force to tackle the federal deficit. The task force proposal backed by Democratic President Barack Obama failed in the Senate in January because antitax Republicans joined in opposition with Democrats wary of being railroaded into cutting Social Security and Medicare.

But in a speech at a Davidson County Republican Party event in Nashville, Corker saved his most fiery rhetoric for AARP, the nation’s largest advocate for seniors. “I think AARP has done as much to hurt our country for the long-term as any organization I know, because they will not allow us as a country to deal with things head on that we need to deal with.” “I will never be a member of AARP,” Corker said to sustained applause from the Republican crowd.

Corker said the future of both programs is contingent on changes to make them more affordable. “We have to change MedicareandSocialSecurity because otherwise there will be no more Medicare or Social Security,” he said. Corker, who is not up for re-election until 2012, said he doesn’t consider his critical comments about the AARP to apply to seniors as a whole. “I don’t think you can say AARP and seniors are monolithic,” Corker told reporters after the speech.

“They’re a group that many seniors are a part of because of the benefits.” The special deficit commission would have attempted to produce a plan combining tax increases and spending curbs to be voted on after the November elections. “I was shocked that (AARP) would be calling senators on the other side of the aisle, getting them to vote against something that would create longterm stability for programs that people count on,” he said.

commentary

Calls ahead don’t serve public well If you’ve ever been to a Sevier County school board meeting, you are aware the members get through with their business usually in less than a half-hour. There often is little discussion of the agenda items, and nearly always a unanimous vote to approve whatever is before them. How can this be? Do all the board members have their questions and concerns answered before the meeting? Well, yeah. But the same is true for other governing boards here and throughout the state. Elected officials get a packet of materials related to the meeting, and if they have questions, most call the person in charge — superintendent, city manager, mayor, etc. — and ask away. When they are satisfied they have the information, they can go to the meeting and vote to approve the items on the agenda. This is not right, you say. This denies the public a chance for spirited, informed debate. That’s all true. But it appears to be perfectly legal. As long as two or more members of a governing board don’t gather to discuss the public’s business, a single member can discuss any issue with a full-time director and avoid such questions and discussions before the public and press. I asked a school board member the other day about why there was so little discussion during meetings and whether members were gathering prior to the meeting to discuss things. That’s when I learned that school board members do what so many other elected officials do: They ask questions outside of a public arena. Ever tried to squirrel-proof a bird feeder? In the lawn and garden section of a store you’ll find the latest contraptions for letting birds eat while denying squirrels the same chance. Smaller feeding holes, overhangs, suspension from trees — you name it, somebody is making money on a device to keep the squirrels out of the birdseed. Yet squirrels, ever resourceful, always figure out a way to beat the system. Looks like the same is true with public officials. They have found a way to circumvent the wording and intent of open-meetings laws and avoid a public discussion on critical issues. Of course, some of the agenda items at a meeting of a governing body can and should be disposed of quickly, such as minutes or paying of certain bills. I’m not sure we want city councils, school boards and county commissions meeting for four or five hours going over the minutiae of routine government business. However, when you are meeting once a month, at least talk about issues in a public session so the people whose taxes pay to run things have the benefit of critical thinking and analysis. I served on a public housing authority in one of my former hometowns. Never did we meet outside of the regular meeting to hash out controversial items. I wouldn’t have allowed it, owing to my career choice, but it would have been wrong under any definition of proper conduct. If we had a personnel issue, we voted openly to go into executive session, discussed it, then came out and voted publicly on the matter we talked about in private — usually the character or good name of an individual. Some of our meetings lasted two or three hours, and they got tedious. That’s just the way it has to be sometimes. To be fair, we rarely had any members of the public attending those housing authority meetings. But that would have been no excuse to circumvent the intent of the law. I don’t think elected officials here are trying to duck public discussion because they don’t want the people to know what they’re thinking. I think they resolve issues ahead of time because it’s convenient, avoids any embarrassment, shortens the meetings and leads to unity among the members. It’s easy, when we disagree, to find fault with those who sacrifice some of their privacy and family time to serve in public. The goal here is not to point fingers, but to encourage strict adherence to the spirit of the open-meetings law and the service to the general public. It may be OK for a school board member or city council member or county commissioner to call the leader of that government agency and resolve issues and concerns ahead of a meeting, but it’s not right.

Editorial

Staying put Local officials make a strong case for keeping Arrowmont right where it is So why should tax dollars and private contributions be used to keep Arrowmont School of Arts & Crafts in Gatlinburg? After all, it’s not exactly a tourist attraction, and we’re a tourist area. It contributes little to the revenue that comes to government. Many of the people who visit Arrowmont for weeklong classes seldom venture into town. The campus is tucked away off the Parkway, little seen by our visitors. Do we really care if Arrowmont stays or leaves? We should. If we look at things only in terms of the jobs they create or the tax revenue they generate, we’d have little support for a lot of what we hold dear in this community. We value our churches, and they are tax-exempt. We value our schools, and they drain millions of dollars from our tax rolls. We value our municipal parks, but they cost money, not generate money. Arrowmont is a link to our history. It was started some 100 years ago when the Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women first established a settlement school in Gatlinburg to educate mountain people who, in many cases, had never attended school. It is a cultural and artistic icon, one of the most

renown schools of its kind anywhere in the country. Frankly, it provides a sharp and necessary contrast to much of what you see throughout Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg. It makes us a diverse community, one that values and embraces its cultural past and rich heritage. And it specializes in the arts, and where else but Sevier County can you find the arts celebrated and so ingrained in our society? Last week the three entities interested in providing a home for Arrowmont made their presentations to a task force the school established to consider the offers from three finalists. Gatlinburg, Knoxville and Greeneville made their case. The Gatlinburg offer is unique among the three, because it involves a strategy to keep Arrowmont here, not relocate it 40 or 50 miles away. It’s fair to say almost everyone wants Arrowmont to stay, from the community leaders who form the local task force to the Arrowmont task force to members of the community. The problem is that Pi Beta Phi Fraternity for Women, which owns the land, apparently wants to sell it

and reap millions in return. Its charity focus has shifted from Arrowmont to literacy. Arrowmont just doesn’t figure into these plans. If Arrowmont is to stay, a way needs to be found to buy the land from the fraternity. We’re looking at as much as $10 million to $20 million — that is, if the fraternity’s leadership understands the real value of the property. The school system sees Arrowmont as a way to enhance its planned arts magnet school, maybe even locating it on the Arrowmont property. The city of Gatlinburg and the county seem willing to contribute because they realize the value of the school and how important it can continue to be in so many areas. Before this year is out, maybe as soon as August or September, we’ll know the future of the school — whether it will remain here where it’s been for a century, or elsewhere. If there is justice in all this, it will mean Arrowmont stays put, where it belongs and where its mission began. But justice can be an elusive animal. In the meantime, thanks to all those who have stepped up in an effort to retain this important and valued entity.

TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS FOOTBALL

Fans get glimpse of the future at Neyland Bray-led White team bests Orange 16-7 By BETH RUCKER AP Sports Writer

KNOXVILLE — Tennessee quarterback Tyler Bray is young enough to still be a high school senior. In Saturday’s spring scrimmage, the freshman played with the poise of someone with much more experience. Bray, who graduated high school a semester early and enrolled at Tennessee in January, threw a 3-yard touchdown pass to Denarius Moore to lead the white team to a 16-7 win in the Orange and White game. Bray finished 18-for-40 for 200 yards to lead all quarterbacks. “I was real pleased with his presence out there,” first-year coach Derek Dooley said. “He’s really a high school senior (but) wasn’t nervous, nothing jittery and performed the way he’d been performing all spring. I think that says a lot about him.” Bray was at his best during the Volunteers’ hurryup drill just before halftime that led to the touchdown. He completed six of Jason Davis/The Mountain Press nine pass attempts in that drive, hitting Tauren Poole Tennessee White team’s Denarius Moore beats Tennessee Orange team defensive back C.J. Fleming on the receiving end of a Tyler Bray touchdown pass in the second quarter of the Orange and White game on Saturday afternoon at Neyland See Spring game, Page A11 Stadium.

Oliver fires 4-hit shutout at Lady Tigers top Carter 2-0 By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor PIGEON FORGE — Makenzie Oliver pitched a gem Thursday night for the Pigeon Forge Lady Tigers, and her offense provided just enough punch for the Orange and Black to pick

up a needed district win over Carter 2-0. Allowing only four hits and walks through seven innings pitched, Oliver fired her way through the Hornets lineup, piling up strikeout after strikeout on her way to 10 Ks. Offensively, junior

Ashley Wojnowski provided a spark for the Lady Tigers, going 2-for-3 at the dish with a double. Oliver was 1-for-3 at the plate, but stole two bases after her single, setting her one run scored. See SoFTBALL, Page A9

SEVIERVILLE — Less than a week after a depressing 12-1 loss to Morristown West this past Tuesday, the Sevier County Smoky Bears have found a simple cure for the blues. Winning big. The Smoky Bears (17-8) rolled off two-straight mercy rule victories over Clinton and Greeneville. Nobody was a bigger part of either of those wins than red-hot shortstop Michael Farragut, who went 8-for-8 over the two games. Thursday he went 4-for-4 and scored four runs in support of starting pitcher Charlie Gavaghan, who pitched a complete game four-hitter in the 13-2 five inning win. Adding to the Bears’ hit parade were Kelby Carr (3-4, one RBI), Brandon Houser (two hits, two RBIs) and Dillon Cate (double, triple, two runs, two RBIs). Providing the power were sophomore catcher Kyle Pope and returning All-State left fielder Zach Flynn. Flynn hit a three-run homer to the opposite field, his sixth bomb of the season. In the meantime, Pope launched his third moonshot of the year, a two-run job. “We had 11 hits to the opposite field tonight,” coach Lance Traywick said. “I’m really proud of the boys being able to stay inside the baseball and hit the other way. Even though we had

a big lead they didn’t give away at-bats, I’m really proud of their plate discipline. But it’s just one game, and we’ve got to be able to build on it. “After our performance on Tuesday night brought us back down to Earth, the boys realized we play better with a chip on our shoulder, and that loss put a chip on there about the size of Mt. Everest,” coach Lance Traywick said. “And if we want to keep playing better it better stay there.”

The chip was evidently in tact Friday night, as the Bears went out and pounded Clinton 15-0 in five. Again Farragut was 4-for-4, leading a Bears’ feast on Greene Devils’ pitching, as SCHS knocked out 18 base hits in the game.

LeBron, Shaq lead Cavs over Bulls By TOM WITHERS AP Sports Writer CLEVELAND — LeBron James and Shaquille O’Neal have only one goal, and they moved one step closer to their objective on Saturday. Cleveland’s superstars, separated for a large chunk of the regular season, combined for 36 points and seven blocks as the Cavaliers opened the Eastern Conference playoffs with a 96-83 win over the Chicago Bulls. James had 24 points and

four blocks and a slimmeddown O’Neal, playing for the first time since Feb. 25, scored 12 in 24 minutes as the top-seeded Cavs won a testy opener between two teams that obviously don’t care for each other.

But James converted a three-point play with 2:29

ATLANTA — The Atlanta Hawks are off to a good start in the playoffs, even though they barely showed up for the second half. The Milwaukee Bucks are short-handed but at least showed a little fight. Led by Joe Johnson and getting production from all their key players, the Hawks blitzed the Bucks early, survived a lackluster showing after halftime and held off Milwaukee 102-92 in Game 1 of the Eastern Conference series Saturday. The Hawks had mismatches all over the court, taking advantage of the gruesome injury that took out Milwaukee center Andrew Bogut late in the season. The home team never trailed, building a 20-point lead in the first quarter and going to halftime with a 62-40 edge. The Bucks made a game of it led by Brandon Jennings, who scored 34 points in his playoff debut. But the rookie didn’t have nearly enough help against the No. 3-seeded Hawks, making their third straight playoff appearance and hoping to break up the expected ClevelandOrlando duel in the Eastern Conference.

Mountain Life ■ The Mountain Press ■ B Section ■ Sunday, April 18, 2010

Evolution of print media and Internet It’s hard not to wonder what the news is going to look like 10 years from now. The notion of the evening news seems as antiquated these days as rotary phones. We in the newspaper business hear constantly that we’re like the dinosaurs. Things are changing. How much, remains to be seen. Twenty-four-hour news channels have changed the game for broadcast news. Maybe there’s a talking head as trusted and comforting as Walter Cronkite was to me. But I don’t think we have that type of person any more. Maybe I’m too cynical to have that kind of trust, too. It’s not just CNN that’s taking on your local newspaper. It is the Internet. In addition to waiting for the evening news, there was a time when people had to wait until the paperboy rode by to read all about it. Or find a newsstand. Heck, you even had to wait a week or a month to read articles in magazines. You can still wait. But, if you’re feeling the slightest bit impatient, and you have access, you can read most stories for free online. And they aren’t waiting for the print editions. Honestly, I cannot imagine how things have changed for freelancers or magazine writers writing well-researched, thoughtful analysis in a periodical. Newspaper writers are somewhat used to getting things done now. For some (me), it’s the best way to get them to accomplish anything. Broadcast news folks were always used to running with “breaking news” if the story were big enough. Just look at Google news. If a national story is big enough, you’re likely to find hundreds of stories linked within an hour of the event. Some of those are copies of the same stories after they buzzed along the wire. But, you can compare the AP coverage with the New York Times, Washington Post, Time magazine, Newsweek and others. And in a few minutes, you might also even be able to compare it to what hundreds of bloggers are saying. It’s a whole new world. And the question is, how are we going to compete? The answer: We will evolve. All of us. There isn’t a business model yet that newspapers or TV news are happy with for using the Web. People have gotten spoiled on the notion that content should be free. In fact, chances are strong that they’re either using a Web browser that blocks “pop-up” ads or have separate software to do it. For news agencies to continue doing their jobs, some combination of those factors must change. I love writing for a newspaper. I consider it a calling. I still have bills to pay, and so do the folks who sign my checks. I also love reading the news. Even online, I prefer it to “watching” news. When I check on a TV story, I don’t typically look for the video feed, unless there is raw footage. I’d rather read it. I’m not sure where that puts me in relation to most consumers, but there’s still a market for the printed ... er, typed, word. If you follow college sports — mainly football and basketball — you’re likely aware of Web sites on your favorite team. They charge subscription fees, along with having a few ads. You may have picked up on another phenomenon: Users are as interested in the forums, the message boards, as they are in staff content. Some users say that’s why they’re willing to pay the fee. One site that covers the Vols appears to have a staff of less than a half-dozen. It’s part of a network, which reduces the need for some staff. They’re depending on subscriptions of about $10 a month to cover costs. I wonder if that’s part of the future for news media in general. But in addition to providing content for a subscription, those sites also provide another model of the future: bloggers and professional journalists. Parts of that model are a nightmare to me as a journalist. Rumors get spread at the speed of light. If you call the paper and offer a rumor, the reporter often checks on it. If it can’t be substantiated, it doesn’t become a story. On a Web site, if you put the rumor on the forum, it’s there for everyone to read — unchecked, unsubstantiated. I still believe papers like The Mountain Press have a leg up on the national and regional media in cites the size of Knoxville, due to lack of serious competition. If you want to know what the board of education or city commission decided, you’ll find it here. But, handling that mix of message board or unfiltered rumors along with ordinary content may be in the future for those of us who stay in the news business. A lot of us in the business shudder at that thought. But it beats the shudder that went through a T. Rex when its food supply was gone. One way or another, the media will evolve. Those that don’t will just fade away. — Jeff Farrell is a reporter for The Mountain Press. Call 428-0748, ext. 216, or e-mail to jfarrell@themountainpress.com.

The Mi’kMaq culture is celebrated during a performance of “Drum!” at Dollywood. Around 100 percussion instruments are used during the show. ute performance. For the performers, that’s music to their ears. “The reason it’s called “Drum!” is because it features on the rhythm of each culture,” musical director Doris Mason said. “And that’s something that connects. “There’s been a lot of history, a lot of hardship in all the cultures, but we feel like this is a good time to say, OK, we know our history, we addressed it, know the problems. Let’s start fresh.” For the most part, the performance follows a chronological history, beginning with the aboriginal Mi’kMaq tribe which was there when the French Acadians began to settle on the land in the

early 17th Century. The Irish and Scottish people came about the same time, though exactly when is debated. “There was a battle; six or seven times it went back and forth between the English and the French,” Mason said of the ruling factions. The English won out in 1755 when the British pushed the French Acadians out of the area. Many of them wound up migrating to Louisiana. Black settlers who were loyal to the Queen, those seeking escape from slavery, and others migrating from the Caribbean and searching for new a new home round out the four See drum, Page B7

May we all live lives so our colors shine brightly By ALTA RAPER Have you ever stopped to think what a dull place this world would be if there were no color? Color plays such an important part in our lives!! It brings us as much joy and beauty as sunshine brings warmth and contentment. Spring’s garden of color is in full bloom here in Pittman Center. You should see the yellow forsythia and the white Bradford pear trees in bloom. Magnificent! Morning always finds smoke on the mountains, as soft white clouds nestle themselves down into the misty green of the trees. The red buds, the soft pink and white of the dogwoods and other flowering trees gracing the landscape are now beginning to splash the mountainside with every shade of green imaginable, spring green, leaf green, apple green, lime green, brilliant

and shimmering shades, glorious in their beauty. The early changing trees, especially the weeping willows by the creek, are already wearing new spring coats; awesome in the ever changing colors of the mountains. I am doing my best to get out and enjoy these glorious brush strokes of color painted by the hand of God. I want them imprinted indelibly into my heart, mind and soul; these colors warm me, brighten me, and lift me up as nothing else can. An important lesson is here in these changing colors; it doesn’t matter how long your colors last in this world, but how brightly they shine while they are here. Souls are beautiful, too, and just as each season has its own unique colors so does each soul possess colors of its own. We have the capacity to be bright, joyous and a pleasure to be around or dull, lifeless

and dreary. I have known some truly beautiful souls and many are still with me today. The colors of their lives make me smile and my own life shines brighter because of their presence. May we all live as beautifully as we can and let our colors shine as brightly as possible with boundless love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness and absolute delight. And we shall live, love and laugh … to the fullest. “Blessed is the man who trusts in the Lord … He is like a tree planted along a riverbank … its leaves stay green and it goes right on producing all its luscious fruit.” Jeremiah 17:7-8 The Living Bible. — Alta Raper is pastor of Pittman Center Circuit of the United Methodist Church: Burnett Memorial UMC in Pittman Center, Webb’s Creek UMC just off 321 in Gatlinburg, and Shults Grove UMC in Cosby.

Smoky Mountain Bible Institute Lesson #10 Welcome to class. Please take out your Bibles and prepare to take copious notes as the information that follows is of great value…. Let’s break out our brush again and knock some dust off more interesting archeological artifacts. This veritable mountain of ancient treasures all makes perfect sense in light of God’s truth. But I will try to give a more abbreviated list or we will never get out of the field of archeology. Cities: here is a small list of Middle Eastern cities or towns that either have or have had archeological digs that validate biblical chronologies with regard to those places: Gezer, Shiloh, Ashdod, Beth Shemesh, the pool at Gibia, Gibeah, Beth Shean, Jerusalem, Beersheba, Samaria, Hazor, Carchemish, Babylon, Suza, Nazereth, Bethsaida, Cana, Capernaum, Gergesa, Sychar, Jericho, Bethany, Tiberias, Ceasarea Philippi, Megiddo, Sepphoris, the ten cities of the Decapolis, Damascus, Areopagus, Corinth, Ephesus, multiple Antioch’s, Thessalonica, Smyrna, Pergamum, and Sardis, this is really only a very small sampling of a very large list of such places. House of David: is the inscription found on a piece of stone at Tel Dan, this is the first extra biblical mention of King David. Ivory: decorative ivory ornaments, and other objects with Hebrew inscriptions have been found in several sites in Palestine dating to the time of King Solomon. They may not come from his ivory and gold covered throne but they do give evidence of a unique craft in use at the time and place of the biblical Solomon. Ancient donation receipt: ostracon, the word for pieces of pottery used for notes, messages and receipts. Because they are made of pottery they can be dated very accurately. There is a 2800 year old ostracon that is a receipt for a donation of 3 shekels to the house of Yahweh. Hmmmm Solomon’s Temple anyone??? Royal Seals: a number of royals seals carved out of precious stone have been discovered. These seals bear the names of Uzziah, Hoshea, Hezekiah and Solomon. They went to a lot of trouble to carve these stones for kings that many skeptics say never existed and are the stuff of cultural legend not history. Things carved in Stone: there are many things carved in stone that are a real problem for those who seek to dismiss biblical history. On a Moabite stone King Mesha brags of fighting off the king of the Israel and even uses that phrase “house of David” on the stone. Shalmaneser’s black obelisk brags of conquering the Israelites. Lachish has a 62 foot long relief boasting of defeat of Israel and Sennacherib had a 15 inch tall 6 sided prism carved claiming to have vanquished Israel. Pharaoh Shishak describes on the walls of the temple of Karnack about invading Judah around 925 BC. A lot of kings had a lot of carving done to brag of their defeat of Israel that just happens to jive chronologically with scripture. And for those who would argue that the Israelites were just a small band of nomads. Consider this, do kings brag about destroying a large and powerful nation or do they brag about defeating a small band of shepherds. When you put it that way the stone seems to speak for itself. I think we will have done a pretty through summary of the field of archeology in a few more sessions so that we can them move on to the realm of general science by this summer sometime. Thanks for attending S.M.B.I. …class dismissed.

Wildflower Pilgrimage has rich 60-year history Submitted Report GATLINBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The 60th Spring Wildflower Pilgrimage began with botanists from the University of Tennessee. It now involves as many as 1,000 participants. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pilgrimage â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a five-day exploration of plant and animal life â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will be April 21-25. Online registration is open at www.springwildflowerpilgrimage.org. Tickets are $75 per person for two or more days. Single-day tickets are available for $40. Student tickets are $10. For more information, call 436-7318, ext. 222, from 9 a.m. to 4 p.m. weekdays or visit www. springwildflowerpilgrimage.org. The first brochure was printed in two colors. During the first pilgrimage, some of leaders were local people, including Dick Burns, Dorothy MacLean, Mrs. George E. Brown, Mrs. Ernest Ogle and H.P. Strum. The event was housed at the Greystone Lodge. Here is a history as gleaned from an event publication at the time: â&#x20AC;&#x153;In January 1951, Bart Leiper, General Manager of Gatlinburgâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chamber of Commerce, wrote a letter to Samuel L. Meyer, Head of the University of Tennessee Botany Department, to ask, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Would it be feasible to promote some sort of a Spring flower jubilee among the botany classes of nearby areas, headed, perhaps, by your own department.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Fred Norris and   Royal Shanks, from the Botany Department, worked with Arthur Stupka from Great Smoky Mountains National Park put together the first â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Annual Wildflower Pilgrimageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; held  April 27,28, 29 of 1951.  â&#x20AC;&#x153;It consisted of 10 hikes and 11 leaders and was an instant success. From then to now the Botany and now the UT Ecology and Evolutionary Biology Departments have been an integral part in directing this program to its current 152 programs over five days with 115 leaders. Over the past 60 years, many of the hike leaders have been UTK faculty and their graduate students, and the graduate students of these graduate students.â&#x20AC;?   For this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pilgrimage kickoff luncheon, Univerity of Tennessee interim president Jan Simek will speak at 7:30

This 1951 letter from the Gatlinburg Chamber to the university asks for some pilgrimage participation.

A page from the first brochure promoting the pilgrimage. p.m. April 23 at Mills Conference Center. His talk, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Prehistoric Art in Tennessee,â&#x20AC;? will explore how prehistoric people in this area decorated their landscape with religious symbols. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebration will also include a welcoming luncheon and salute to Theodore Roosevelt in honor of his role in founding Great Smoky Mountains National Park, which is celebrating its 76th anniversary this year. The pilgrimageâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roots sprang from professors Fred Norris and Royal Shanks, who worked closely with the park naturalist Art Stupka and

the city of Gatlinburg to provide an educational component. The first pilgrimage included a hundred participants. Within 30 years, it grew to include more than a thousand participants from over 30 states, explained Ken McFarland of UT Knoxvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ecology and evolutionary biology department. â&#x20AC;&#x153;From the beginning, the botany and now the ecology and evolutionary biology departments, have been an integral part in directing this event to its current 152 programs over five days with 115 leaders,â&#x20AC;? said McFarland, chairman of the pilgrimage organiz-

The Irish and the Scottish influence and how they all got moved out,” Anderson

Their run will conclude with the ending of the Festival of Nations on April 26.

puter equipment are recycled through Dellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s product recycling programs, by certified environmental partners. Even though Goodwill will not be reselling computers
