Zlobec may consider plea deal


Charged in multicar Labor Day accident that injured 18 By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer

SEVIERVILLE — With his trial date weeks away, a South Carolina man is once again considering a plea agreement on charges he caused a multicar wreck last Labor Day that caused several injuries. Randy D. Zlobec, of Myrtle Beach, S.C., is scheduled to face a Sevier County jury Aug. 25 on charges including DUI, vehicu-

lar assault, failure to stop and render aid, reckless driving, criminal impersonation, failure to wear a seat belt and four counts of aggravated assault. Zlobec Last month, Public Defender Amber Haas told Rex Henry Ogle that Zlobec was standing by his not guilty plea and was

set to move to trial. Thursday, Zlobec was back in court, asking Ogle to assign him a new attorney. His basis: He said he didn’t have enough time to consider the plea agreement before the plea date. However, the district attorney prosecuting the case told Ogle that he was not able to provide the plea agreement to Haas until shortly before the plea date, because he found new information showing

Zlobec should be sentenced as a Range II offender based on earlier convictions. That would mean he could face longer sentences if he pleads guilty or is convicted. After hearing that, Ogle left Haas on the case, and scheduled another plea date for July 27, giving Zlobec another opportunity to consider an agreement with prosecutors. He reminded Zlobec that Haas couldn’t necSee Zlobec, Page A5

MARYVILLE — More than 50 members of the 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment — many from Sevier County — have returned to East Tennessee. Members of the unit arrived at the National Guard Armory in Maryville on Thursday afternoon after flying into Smyrna on Wednesday. Their return came nearly six months early after completing a year’s worth of work ahead of schedule. Many more members of the Pigeon Forge unit are still in Iraq, but are expected to return by Sept. 1. “It’s amazing,” Guardsman Joshua McClain said of See 278th, Page A5

Full VHA hospital unlikely for former medical center Committee discusses Fort Sanders Sevier fate By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — Some county officials got a look at what the future might hold for the old Fort Sanders Sevier Medical Center, which is likely in for a major slimming-down and a

makeover now that it’s no longer taking patients after more than half a century. The County Commission’s Intergovernmental Committee has been given the charge of making a recommendation about what will happen to the 141,000-square-foot facility. The option it seems to be favoring calls for the demolition of 69,770 of those feet, while leaving 71,636.

Despite a push by a local group to have the entire space used for a veterans hospital or a post traumatic stress disorder treatment center, it seems there’s no chance the space will host anything more than a clinic. That’s a decision being made by the Veterans Health Administration (VHA), not county officials. “We started off talking about a full hospital here for the VHA

and we were told absolutely they were not interested,” County Mayor Larry Waters said. “They told us there is not another VHA hospital planned for Tennessee. We’ve offered them every scenario we could think of and they weren’t interested.” Everything from giving the full hospital to the VHA to tearSee vha, Page A4

PF commissioners get good, bad sewer news By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer PIGEON FORGE — For member of the City Commission, Monday evening’s work session brought good news and bad news, with the surprise twist that the pleasant report came out of a sewer pipe. The good news is they may be able to eliminate five pump stations — two private and three public, including some that are near the end of their lives — with a plan to install a new sewer line in the Dry Fork and Kings Hills areas. The bad, and likely more momentous, news is that they may be forced to delay by several months improvements on Birds Creek Road thanks to an apparent oversight by the Tennessee Department of Transportation. During the session, Public Works Director Mark Miller presented a plan for the new Dry Fork pipe that city officials agree could be a boon for the area off Wears Valley Road. It calls for laying a new line that would flow downhill from Kings Hills through a valley that leads right to a main. Because the system would now be losing elevation all the way to the main, it could rely on gravity to get the wastewater out of the area, eliminating the need for those pump stations. Those facilities use machinery to force the sewage through the lines in areas where gravity can’t do the work. The possibility of completing the project was broached last year by Commissioner Randal Robinson during another board work session. Robinson told the group he has spoken to property owners in Kings Hills who have committed to allowing the line to cross their properties if it means eliminating an offending pump station in their area. That facility has backed up so many times in the last year that it’s pushed the area near a development moratorium.

While Robinson may be confident there’s access for the pipe in Kings Hills, Miller isn’t so sure they’ll find it farther down in the Dry Fork area. “We may have some problems getting the signatures down there,� he warned the board. The city is required to get permission from property owners whose land will be crossed before laying the line. Miller said he thinks many will sign off on the proposal, but he isn’t certain all of them will agree. Early discussions with residents in the area have shown some resistance, he said. If the signatures can’t be acquired, the city might have to resort to condemning land to move ahead with the project, money for which was included in the budget for the coming fiscal year. “To me this Dry Fork think is the best thing I’ve seen since I started on here,� Robinson said. Unfortunately, not all the sewer news came up smelling like roses Monday. Miller told the group the city will have to pay for moving an 8-inch water line it owns that runs down Upper Middle Creek to Birds Creek and on to Catons Chapel Elementary School. State law requires the owner of such a utility to cover its relocation if improvement work is done on the road. With a surge of cash from the federal stimulus bill, state leaders, after years of pleading from local officials, finally moved forward with a plan to improve Birds Creek that includes straightening out and widening some sections. Those efforts will put the asphalt directly over Pigeon Forge’s water line in a few areas, something that can’t happen because a rupture in the pipe could run the new road. As a result, the city has been told it will have to move the line, though that notification apparently didn’t come until after work had already started on the road.

“They never included us on a pre-construction conference or anything,� City Manager Earlene Teaster said. “This really should have been handled on the front-end, but they didn’t even draw up a plan for relocating the utilities before they started.� The city’s public works staff can’t handle the project, meaning an outside contractor will have to be brought in. With state law requiring the city to bid the work to get the best price, following that directive could mean pushing the work back several months. “We’re going to delay this project three or four months if we do that,� Miller worried. “One problem we have with bidding this thing out is the state doesn’t even have a plan for relocating the utilities. If we bid it, we’ll have to pay engineers to draw up a plan before we can send it to the contractors.� To avoid that potential delay, state transportation officials have recommended the city use the contractor completing the road work, Sevierville-based Charles Blalock & Sons Construction. They have promised to provide the city a letter to give to the state’s auditors if they question the lack of bids explaining the situation. Still, city officials aren’t convinced the move is the right one and don’t like being forced by the state to not seek the cheapest price quote. “I don’t want to hold anybody up, but we need to make sure it’s done right and done in the best interests of our taxpayers,� Mayor Keith Whaley said. For now, the commissioners agreed to simply bide their time. Miller said he will check with the state on other potential solutions to the problem and bring those back to the board during another upcoming meeting to get its final decision on how he should proceed. n

Sumeriski was cited for “his outstanding leadership in planning and execution of America’s Reinvestment and Recovery Act (ARRA) projects, the 75th Anniversary of Great Smoky Mountains National Park and his exceptional contributions to the National Park Service.� Sumeriski developed an asset management program for the park and realigned park repair, rehabilitation and construction priorities. With the approval of stimulus money, 11 of the projects were funded, totaling $78 million — about 10 times the amount of funding

that the park receives in an average year. Losson was recognized for “outstanding leadership of the administrative program ‌ and her efforts in planning and executionâ€? of the federal stimulus money. Losson worked with park staff, superintendents and others to complete documents which resulted in the park exceeding Servicewide goals for project contract obligations in the first 100 days. Park Superintendent Dale Ditmanson said, “I could not be more pleased and proud that these fine employees have received this well-deserved recognition. Between the 75th Anniversary and the ARRA Program, we have asked a great deal of our staff at every level in the last two years.

Gas leak closes ‘66’ for half an hour By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — Traffic was completely stopped in both directions on Sevierville’s busy Highway 66 for more than half an hour Thursday as emergency crews worked to get a leak in a major gas line controlled after it was ruptured by workers from Charles Blalock & Sons Construction. The situation was reported to the Sevierville Fire Department at 10:18 and the first trucks arrived on the scene at 10:24. They immediately secured the area, shutting down both the road and the nearby Flea

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich helps his wife Patti traverse a puddle as they enter the Federal Court building in Chicago during his federal corruption trial.

Traders Paradise until Sevier County Utility District could stop the flow through the line, Fire Department Captain Lynn Rawlings said. The pipe, which Sevierville Police Department Detective Kevin Bush described as a “major gas line,� was broken by crews from the local contracting firm, which is working on improvements to Highway 66. “The construction company dug into the large line the gas company has running out there to serve that whole area,� Rawlings said. “We were called to help control the hazmat situation until the gas company could switch the valve that

cuts it off.� That process was completed just before 11 a.m. and the area was safe enough for the road to be reopened at that time. State law requires that contractors know the location of such lines and avoid hitting them while doing underground work or face a fine. There was no word Thursday afternoon if Blalock’s will incur a penalty for the rupture. A company spokesman was not available to comment on the situation. n

Blagojevich trial Great Outpost hosts campout next weekend witness admits pressuring firm Submitted Report

By MICHAEL TARM Associated Press Writer CHICAGO — A Chicago attorney told Rod Blagojevich’s corruption trial Thursday that he warned an asset management firm it had to hire a consultant recommended by one of the former governor’s top fundraisers or lose $80 million in business with a state pension board. In his second day on the witness stand, Joseph Cari testified that he delivered the warning to the Virginiabased JER Partners under pressure from disgraced attorney Stuart Levine. In one wiretap tape played in court, a highly agitated Levine was heard talking to Cari about yanking the $80 million commitment of state pension funds to JER because it hadn’t hired the consultant recommended by the fundraiser, now-convicted political fixer Tony Rezko. “I can change that, but I don’t like to do things like that,� Levine says about pulling the money, adding that the “political powers that be� would be upset if the consultant were not hired. Cari testified he took that as a reference to Blagojevich and his inner circle. Federal prosecutor Reid Schar asked Cari what Levine had been saying. “Clearly, that if they didn’t hire the consultant they wouldn’t get the money,� he said. Cari, a former national finance chairman of the Democratic National Committee, has pleaded guilty to attempted extortion in connection with the threat to JER and is hoping for a lenient sentence as a reward for his testimony at both the Blagojevich and Rezko trials. He said he made the call to the asset management firm only because he was afraid that if he did not

COSBY — NOC’s Great Outpost will host a campout at Cosby Campground June 25–26, as part of the National Wildlife Federation’s Great American Backyard Campout. The campout encourages families to create an outdoor experience,

Levine would pull his law business from Cari’s firm and freeze Cari’s own asset management firm out of the state pension money. He said Blagojevich sent him a similar message on a plane ride to a New York fundraiser, which he said he understood as so: That if you got state work, you would have to make political contributions — and if you made political contributions, you would get state work. An attentive Blagojevich sat forward during Cari’s testimony, his eyes fixed on the witness stand — sometimes nodding his head as his attorney cross-examined Cari. As with previous government witnesses, the defense endeavored to portray Cari as untrustworthy, and he admitted that he initially lied to prosecutors. Under cross-examination by Blagojevich attorney Michael Gillespie, Cari acknowledged that he had never been pressured or threatened by Blagojevich. The former governor looked pleased. The usually talkative Blagojevich refused to comment Thursday when he arrived in court, grinning at reporters but drawing his index finger across his mouth in the zipped-lip sign.

while reliving the tradition of pitching a tent, telling stories around the campfire and spending an evening outside. At the Cosby Campground, there will be free clinics for campers, including fly-casting instruction, guided hikes, birding, gear demonstrations, crafts, campfire storytelling and more. At the same time,

money will be raised to support the National Wildlife Federation in its “Be Out There� program, which provides education and encouragement for young people to get active in the outdoors. The event is free to participate (with the exception of the campsite fee at Cosby Campground). Call 436-1158. The National Wildlife

Federation’s “Be Out There� program provides initiatives for children and raises awareness about the lack of healthy physical activity outside among young people. Research connects the lack of outdoor time to increased obesity, depression, stress, diabetes, ADD and poor performance in the classroom.

Man admits killing former homecoming queen KNOXVILLE (AP) — A young man police believe used a master key to enter the motel room of an Alabama woman admitted killing her and accepted a plea deal Thursday that requires him to spend 51 years in prison. It was reported that Valentino Vasquez Miranda, a 20-year-old Mexican who is in the U.S. illegally and does not speak English, signed the deal and is awaiting a judge’s approval. The agreement also requires Miranda to identify any accomplices, according to Assistant District Attorney General Kevin Allen. He said DNA on Jennifer Hampton’s pants suggest at least one other man may have been involved in raping her. Miranda had been

reluctant to accept the deal earlier Thursday because he did not want to face Hampton’s family in open court, according to her mother. Cynthia Senn said she was summoned to Knox County Criminal Court Thursday morning and was told that prosecutors had offered Miranda a deal in which he would be sentenced to life with the possibility of parole after 51 years and that Miranda had accepted. Family members will be allowed to address him directly before the judge accepts the plea agreement.

Miranda was working at a Knoxville Days Inn in Sept. 2008 when Hampton of Waterloo, Ala., disappeared. Police believe Miranda used the master key to enter her room. The 21-year-old former homecoming queen was beaten, raped and strangled and her nude body was found in a lake several days later.

Miranda’s wife, who worked in housekeeping at the motel, cooperated with police after finding blood on Miranda’s clothes.

The facilityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s age will also present other problems for its renovation, including adding costs for the removal of old lighting fixtures and leadbased paint.

Already requests are being considered from organizations ranging from Safe Harbor Child Advocacy Center to the Health Department to local military clubs. At this point it seems the only one of those that could likely count on finding a new home in the old hospital is the Health Department, which has outgrown its current location, ironically in the old Yarberry Hospital. If that move, which Waters called a â&#x20AC;&#x153;top priority,â&#x20AC;? is made, it seems likely the county will transfer several offices, including planning and environmental health, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s currently running out of houses on Prince Street into Yarberry. The county also seems likely to at least give serious consideration to building its own morgue in the facility. Currently there is no such space, although the county pays to use a freezer space at a local funeral home. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really need a morgue,â&#x20AC;?

Lawmakers pound BP chief executive By CALVIN WOODWARD Associated Press Writer

Photo by Curt Habraken/The Mountain Press

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Channeling the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s anger, lawmakers pilloried BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s boss in a withering day of judgment Thursday for the oil company at the center of the Gulf calamity. Unflinching, BP chief executive Tony Hayward said he was out of the loop on decisions at the well and coolly asserted, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not stonewalling.â&#x20AC;? That infuriated members of Congress even more, Democrats and Republicans alike. Testifying as oil still surged into the Gulf of Mexico and coated ever more coastal land and marshes, Hayward declared â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am so devastated with this accident,â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;deeply sorryâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;so distraught.â&#x20AC;? Yet the oil man disclaimed knowledge of any of the myriad problems on and under the Deepwater Horizon rig before the deadly explosion, telling a congressional hearing he had only heard about the well earlier in April, the month of the accident, when the BP drilling team told him it had found oil. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With respect, sir, we drill hundreds of wells a year around the world,â&#x20AC;? Hayward told Republican Rep. Michael Burgess of Texas. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, I know,â&#x20AC;? Burgess shot back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what scaring me right now.â&#x20AC;?

essarily change the terms of his sentence if he does accept one. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make the state offer you a more advantageous plea agreement,â&#x20AC;? Ogle said. He also took time to praise Haasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; work, assuring Zlobec that she would look over every option in his case. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s only one of her and if I could Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d clone 10 to 15 of her I would,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She works harder than anybody I know.â&#x20AC;? Zlobecâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s request doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s set to plead guilty, only that he wishes to better understand the terms if he should accept an agreement and felt like he was rushed into making the decision the first time. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s accused of causing a massive wreck on Highway 66 when he was driving south and came to an area where traffic was backed up and stopped due to the holiday. Police said it appeared Zlobec failed to stop or even to slow down. He struck one car and caused a sixcar chain reaction that sent 18 people to area hospitals, according to police reports. He then allegedly fled the scene as police arrived, crossing the Little Pigeon River on foot before officers caught him. After that, he sent a letter to The Mountain Press from the Sevier County Jail, jail claiming he was innocent. He said he wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drunk at the time of the wreck, but had fallen asleep after taking a prescribed anti-anxiety pill the previous night. He claimed to have fled after being assaulted by law enforcement officers. Police noted he used several fake names before they identified him; they also said they had no contact with him at all before arresting him after he crossed the river. Another driver involved in he wreck contradicted his story that he was beaten by officers. Brooke Rios told The Mountain Press that Zlobec ran before any law enforcement officers arrived. Her daughter, Karina, also suffered serious injuries in the wreck. The case record includes

medical records on all the injuries to all the patients from the wreck; Haas told Ogle that there are 1,500 pages of medical records in the file. Officials with the district attorney generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office will contact the victims to let them know Zlobec is considering an agreement and to consult with them if those discussions move forward. Additional investigation after his arrest showed Zlobec had a number of convictions in South Carolina, including drug and traffic charges. Those charges were apparently included in the list that led prosecutors to conclude he should be sentenced as a Range II offender. Zlobec told Ogle Thursday that his prior charges were from 1994. Ogle told him that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make a difference for his status. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What you do stays with you,â&#x20AC;? he said. n

An unknown couple reunite and then quickly hit the road.

UT campuses face 8.5% tuition hike KNOXVILLE (AP) — The University of Tennessee’s Board of Trustees is considering tuition increases of 8.5 percent for students at the Knoxville, Chattanooga and Martin campuses this fall. The proposal, which the board is scheduled to vote on next week, is expected to generate nearly $20 million in additional revenue for the schools. It follows a 7 percent increase at the Chattanooga and Martin campuses last fall and a 9 percent increase at the Knoxville campus. In

addition, certain students at the College of Business, College of Engineering and College of Nursing on the Knoxville campus will pay $45 to $90 extra per credit hour beginning this fall, in a move approved by the board earlier this year. Tuition and fees have made up a greater and greater portion of the UT system’s budget over the last decade as state funding has declined. Tuition has more than doubled since 2000 at the Knoxville campus. Since 2002, state appro-

priations as a percentage of UT’s total revenues have declined from 53 percent to 49 percent. At the same time, tuition and fees have gone from making up 28 percent of the budget to 39 percent. In addition to declining state contributions, UT also faces the loss of federal stimulus money, which will run out in July 2011. The money is being used to pay for hundreds of UT jobs statewide, and the system faces an estimated $112 million budget shortfall next year. “Jobs are on the line, and

classes on the line,” said Hank Dye, a spokesman for the UT system. “We’re doing everything we can to minimize that.” UT Knoxville Vice Chancellor of Finance and Administration Chris Cimino said the tuition increase is expected generate $14.1 million in revenue for that campus. Most of that will be used to make up for the $10.1 million in state cuts there. It will also help Knoxville prepare for next year, when officials expect the campus to loose more than $100 million — about 20 percent of its funding.

Drivers on Highway 66 may see work starting on widening the busy road within the month. The state has been working to secure right of way to add one additional lane in each direction on the road. The work is expected to ease congestion which regularly experiences traffic jams several miles long as tourists come into and leave the area. Today’s highlight:

Miley Cyrus

LOS ANGELES — Miley Cyrus has proven she “Can’t Be Tamed,” and when she arrived at Los Angeles I n t e r national Airport Cyrus on Wednesday, she appeared to be sporting a new tattoo. The word “LOVE” is inscribed on her right ear, although she has not confirmed if it’s real or not. Perhaps it is a permanent dedication to her 20-yearold Australian boyfriend, Liam Hemsworth? If the tattoo is real, Billy Ray and Tish Cyrus would have had to sign-off on it because Miley is only 17 — in the U.S., it is illegal for anyone under the age of 18 to get a tattoo without parental permission.

Answers on Afghanistan tantalizing Last Saturday morning, Mike Allen’s Politico Playbook, the early-morning blog Washington whisperers wake up to, began this way: “IF YOU READ ONLY ONE STORY -- N.Y. Times 2-col. lead, ‘Karzai Is Said to Doubt West Can Defeat Taliban,’ by Dexter Filkins, in Kabul: President Hamid Karzai ‘has been pressing to strike his own deal with the Taliban and the country’s archrival, Pakistan ... Mr. Karzai’s maneuverings involve secret negotiations with the Taliban outside the purview of American and NATO officials. ... People close to the president say he began to lose confidence in the Americans last summer. ...’” The pre-dawn sound you heard here was hammering ... as in nails in the coffin of our doomed war in Afghanistan. Filkins is as good as we get, one of the great reporters of his generation. And here he is writing that our boy Karzai — the Ngo Dinh Diem of his generation — was privately dismissing evidence that the Taliban was behind a devastating rocket attack earlier this month on a national peace conference. “The president (Karzai),” said a named intelligence official, “did not show any interest in the evidence — none — he treated it like a piece of dirt.” No, it seemed Karzai thought his patrons, the Americans, were probably behind the attack. (Remember that word “dirt.”) When you actually got the Times in your ink-stained hands, you saw Filkins was reporting that Karzai has been secretly trying to cut his own deal with the Taliban and with Pakistan, a rival neighbor that is something of a patron of the same Taliban. Well, that is hardly a surprise. That’s the way the great game has always been played out there. The surprise is that Filkins and the Times felt sure enough about it to lead the paper with the story. We have, of course, been there before, historically if not geographically. The principal reason the Central Intelligence Agency and various high-ranking United States diplomats — Averell Harriman and Henry Cabot Lodge, to be specific — were so anxious to see Diem overthrown (and assassinated) in South Vietnam in 1963 was that they believed the Americanfinanced president and his brother were trying to cut a secret deal with communist North Vietnam. In both secret deals, 47 years apart, the United States would have been pushed out of the fight over control of those far places. Actually, not a great shame, if you think about it. Some of this stuff, of course, is the grist of conspiracy theories. People like me often reject our own suspicions, or at least, put them on hold for a while. Wait and see what happens next. This time what happened next was just two days later, on Monday. And again it was the lead story of The New York Times under this extraordinary headline: U.S. IDENTIFIES MINERAL RICHES IN AFGHANISTAN This story, by James Risen in Washington, reported that for almost 30 years, some geologists have known that Afghanistan has at least a trillion dollars’ worth — “huge veins,” say secret Pentagon surveys — of iron ore, copper, cobalt, lithium and other good stuff. That is certainly plausible to anyone who has spent time going from range to range in the dirt and rock mountains of the Hindu Kush. It’s actually more plausible than the old conspiracy theory that the war in Vietnam was actually about huge reservoirs of offshore oil under the South China Sea. There we are. You don’t have to be Henry Kissinger to figure out what is happening and just how anxious someone in Washington is to stay in Afghanistan, no matter how badly the war is going. There are two possibilities: The mineral reports are true, and we are determined to keep the stuff from China and other interested parties. Or, the reports may not be true, but they are tantalizing enough to provide an answer to the question getting louder and louder — Why are we in Afghanistan? — Richard Reeves, a presidential scholar and expert on six presidents, is the author of several books, including profiles of Richard Nixon and John Kennedy.

Fathers knew best Be sure to remember your dad on his special day this weekend “When I was a boy of fourteen, my father was so ignorant I could hardly stand to have the old man around. But when I got to be twenty-one, I was astonished at how much he had learned in seven years.” — Mark Twain, 1874 On Sunday, what is widely accepted as the 100th anniversary of the first Father’s Day in the United States will be celebrated. It was, according to legend, the idea of a young woman named Sonora Smart Dodd who, after hearing a sermon in a Spokane, Wash., church about the newly implemented Mother’s Day, thought there should be a celebration for fathers such as her own. Her father was a Civil War veteran left to raise his family alone after his wife died giving birth to their sixth child. Statistically, Father’s Day lags behind Mother’s Day in the number of greeting cards sent and the number of long dis-

tance phone calls made. If it’s any consolation to dear old dads everywhere, it can be noted that most long distance collect calls are made on Father’s Day, making it the heaviest day of the year for long distance collect calls. Numbers notwithstanding, it doesn’t make Father’s Day any less of a venerable observance. Although so many families these days are governed by working mothers, the father remains the traditional head of the household. It hasn’t been so long ago that a large percentage of moms stayed at home while the father worked and was considered the bread-winner. Times have changed, but fatherhood hasn’t. Everybody knows the traditional father-son activities: playing catch, coaching sports teams, leading Boy Scout troops, camping and teaching how to hunt or fish. But don’t underestimate the bond between fathers and daughters —

there’s an awful lot of love and tenderness in the “daddy’s little girl” relationship. Dads have tea parties with their little girls, go to their recitals, take them to the movies or skating, are there to lend a shoulder or give a word of advice during what can be traumatic teenage years. And don’t forget about the smile on the father’s face and the tears in the daughter’s eyes when he walks his “little girl” down the aisle. Incongruently, it can be one of a father’s happiest and saddest moments tied into one knot when he gives her away. Fathers, perhaps, get unfairly stereotyped because, as jazz musician Joe Williams recorded in 1958, “A man ain’t supposed to cry.” Maybe not, but be sure to give your dad a call on Sunday. Tell him how much you love him and how much he means to you. It’s a good bet he’ll be pulling out his hankie to dab at the corner of his eyes.

Political view

Public forum Photo of puppy doesn’t belong in want ads under ‘merchandise’

Editor: I have only recently begun reading The Mountain Press. Overall, I’ve really enjoyed the local news and find it a good way to keep up with what’s going on in this area. However, I was appalled to see the picture of a puppy in the header of your “merchandise for sale” want ad category. Right now there is a nationwide campaign to eradicate puppy mills — the usual source for puppies sold in pet shops.

One of the largest campaigns, conducted by Best Friends Animal Sanctuary (the largest no-kill sanctuary in the United States) is to convince people to adopt rather than buy. The title of their campaign is “Puppies Are Not Merchandise.” I can’t imagine that anyone has not seen at least one news report on the deplorable conditions in puppy mills (a huge business right here in Tennessee). Female dogs kept in cages so small that they often cannot stand up or turn around. Bred on every heat cycle, ill fed, no veterinary care, no grooming, no human contact, just bred until they can no longer produce puppies — at

which time they are usually killed. Some of these dogs, when rescued, have to be taught to not be afraid of grass — they lived their entire life in a cage and have never felt grass under their feet. Changing people’s behavior is a series of small steps that will gradually change their perception of things. This is a small thing, but I wish you would substitute that picture with one of real merchandise — furniture, tubas, spittoons — whatever — just not a puppy. Diantha Currier Sevierville

Bears’ Flynn commits to D-1 Tennessee Tech By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — Limited exposure to travel ball and summer leagues due to football commitments may have kept Zach Flynn off the radar for many college coaches, but his late season performance snapped a few to attention, and the senior slugger is now reaping the rewards. After back-to-back seasons hitting over .500 with 24 home runs at SCHS, Flynn committed to Division 1 Tennessee Technological University earlier this week. The school, which first saw Flynn in a private try-out three days after his high school career was over, offered the 5-11, 160-pound outfielder a spot on the team last Wednesday during a visit to Cookeville. “We lost that Monday (May 17) to Davey Crockett, and they came that Thursday to watch me tryout and stuff and talk,” Flynn said. “I hit (batting practice), I threw some balls to second and third and took a round of infield and then ran some (60-yard sprints). (TTU assistant coach Larry Bragga) filmed me the whole time, and I guess he took it back to the head coach and let him watch it. “I feel like I hit it really good, I hit a couple out and I felt like my swing was pretty good that day and I threw the ball pretty well,”

Zach Flynn

Flynn said. The Golden Eagle coaches must have liked what that saw from Flynn, because it didn’t take long for the staff to invite him to their campus for a tour. “I really liked the smaller campus and how it’s all together,” Flynn said. “And the coaches there were pretty awesome. They treated me like I was one of their own, and I wasn’t even committed yet, so I really liked that.” WIth an offer to join the team, Flynn returned home to ponder the decision. In the meantime, one of Tech’s outfielders, junior first-team All-American Chad Oberacker, was picked by the St. Louis Cardinals in the Major League Baseball draft. “He hasn’t decided if he’s going to go or not,” Flynn said. “If he goes, then I get his (scholarship). If he stays then I’ve got to be a recruited walk-on my first year.” Flynn chose to accept

Zach Flynn smiles as he’s congratulated by Sevier County coach Lance Traywick following his second home run of the first inning in the District 2-AAA championship on May 12. Flynn will play his college career at Tennessee Technological University in Cookeville. the offer. “With how they treated me and how successful their baseball team has been over the past few years, I feel like they have a chance to be pretty good in the future,” Flynn said.

Flynn also considered attending ETSU and King College before settling on TTU. He said his time at SCHS prepared him for college, no matter where he chose. “It was just an awesome

experience. I couldn’t have been blessed more with what all I got while I was there and all the things I’ll take away from it — from the coaches to the teachers to everybody. It was just a great experience,” Flynn

said. “Coach Brewer with football was one of the best men I’ve every known and Coach (Traywick) was fiery and just one of the coolest coaches.”



Utah Utes accept invite to join Pac-10

Cannon ready for pros as UVA career ends By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer

By DOUG ALDEN AP Sports Writer SALT LAKE CITY — The University of Utah accepted an invitation to become the 12th member of the newly expanded Pac-10 Conference on Thursday. “Today is an absolutely great day to be a Ute,” athletic director Chris Hill said before he was interrupted by applause during a news conference. The room was packed with Utah dignitaries, boosters and dozens of red and white balloon bouquets. University president Michael Young made it official by signing the agreement, bringing another extended round of applause. The announcement was held at Rice-Eccles Stadium, where the Utes enjoyed two undefeated seasons in the past six years. The Utes received invitations to the Bowl Championship Series in 2004 and 2008, but both were at-large bids. Utah is the first team from a nonBCS conference to reach the premier bowls twice. “I don’t really know if you can compare the two, but there’s a lot of the same feelings and a lot of the same excitement going on right now,” football coach Kyle Whittingham said. By joining the Pac-10, the Utes’ BCS-busting days are ending. After playing one final season in the Mountain West, Utah will join the Pac-10 — or whatever the expanded league’s name will become — in 2011. There is a guaranteed BCS spot for the Pac-10 winner, but that will mean getting through a schedule of one of college football’s most prominent conferences.

Atlanta Braves pinch hitter Chipper Jones puts the Braves ahead with an RBI single as Pittsburgh Pirates catcher Jason Jaramillo looks on in the eighth inning of a baseball game in Atlanta Sunday, May 30. Atlanta went on the win 5-2. MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL

Chipper puts off retirement talk By PAUL NEWBERRY AP Sports Writer ATLANTA — After seeming on the verge of announcing his retirement, Chipper Jones changed course Thursday and said he won’t make a decision until after the season. The Braves third baseman called the media to his locker before the final game of an interleague series against Tampa Bay, looking to put a halt to the speculation about his future. “Any more talk of the r-word will be reserved until the end of the season,” Jones said. “Somehow the cork got taken out. Well, I’m putting it back in right now.’ For two days, Jones had

appeared ready to call it a career. He told The Associated Press he merely needed to work out some “red-tape issues” — including the $28 million he is owed for the final two years of his contract — and indicated he would make an announcement before the end of the homestand on Sunday. Now, the 38-year-old Jones is taking a different path. “Honestly, I have not made a decision either way. Let’s face it, we all know, sort of, which way I’m leaning,” he said, presumably indicating he’s still seriously considering retirement after struggling for the second year in a row and battling numerous injuries. “But I think it’s best that we

put this all behind us.” When the season is over, Jones said he’ll meet with family, friends and other members of his support group to gather their input before he decides whether to return in 2011. Jones said he’s been meeting periodically with team president John Schuerholz and general manager Frank Wren over the last six months to discuss his future. There was another such meeting on Tuesday that also included manager Bobby Cox. “As best as I can gather right now, he’s thinking about retiring after this year,” Cox said following the meeting. “But I can’t give a definitive answer.”

CHARLOTTESVILLE, Va. — For former Pigeon Forge Tigers baseball star Tyler Cannon, this week was bittersweet. Although Cannon saw his college playing career for the University of Virginia Cavaliers come to a sudden and disappointing end in Monday’s 11-0 loss to Oklahoma in the Super Regional finale, he is set to embark Tyler Cannon on his professional baseball career with the Cleveland Indians organization, which drafted Cannon as the 360th overall pick in the 12th round of this month’s Major League Baseball FirstYear Player Draft. “It’s been a dream of mine for awhile to try to play professional baseball,” said the short stop Cannon. “I’m definitely excited.” Cannon finished his Virginia career as the school’s all-time leader in games played and as the third all-time hitter with 274 knocks, trailing just Bill Narleski’s 281 and David Stone’s 276 rips. Cannon batted over .300 in his college career, including a .351 mark last year as a junior followed by this year’s .330 average. “It’s just great to be mentioned in the same sentence as some of the greatest Virginia players ever to play the game,” said Cannon. The No.5 Cavs (51-14) missed out on what would have been their secondconsecutive and second-ever trip to the College World Series by losing Game 3 of the best-of-three Super Regional series against visiting Oklahoma (49-16) on Monday. Virginia got off to a good start in the series with a 3-2 win on Saturday before losing 10-7 Sunday. Monday’s loss marked the first time the Cavs have lost back-to-back games this season.

Birdies hard to find at Pebble Beach By EDDIE PELLS AP National Writer

PEBBLE BEACH, Calif. — Mike Weir popped the ball out of the tangled rough, then watched it hit the green and fall in the hole for a birdie on No. 16 and sole possession of the U.S. Open lead. Too bad momentum at Pebble Beach on Thursday lasted about as long as the trip to the next tee box. The 2003 Masters champion followed his great shot with a bogey-bogey finish to wind up at 1-under 70. He was tied for the clubhouse lead with K.J. Choi, Ian Poulter and Rafael CabreraBello after a good opening round that, at times, seemed as if it could have been better. “You don’t want to finish a round like that. It’s never a good thing,” Weir said. “But it wasn’t because I was looking at the scoreboard and looking at where I am in the tournament. Because it’s Thursday, and I just happened to hit a couple of poor shots.” He wasn’t alone. The sun was shining and the wind was blowing on one of America’s

great courses for the opening round. That led to a brittle course and dry, unreceptive greens for Tiger Woods, Lee Westwood, Tom Watson and the rest with afternoon tee times. “There are areas on a few greens which are very soft and there are areas where I couldn’t get a tee peg in to repair a pitch mark,” Poulter said. Woods, who won by a record 15 strokes at Pebble Beach in 2000, got a nice round of applause on the first tee box, then opened play by nearly running his approach shot on No. 1 into the hole. It slithered 12 feet past, though, and he two-putted for one of eight straight pars to open his round. Not bad, even if it didn’t figure to get much easier. The stretch of No. 1 through 7 contained six of the seven easiest-ranked holes during the first round. Phil Mickelson played in the morning and ran into trouble almost everywhere he went. He hit one ball onto the beach on No. 17, another off the rocks and careening into the ocean on 18. He left a ball in a bunker on No. 4 and

missed a four-foot birdie putt on No. 6. All part of a frustrating day that left this year’s Masters winner at 4-over 75. “I don’t believe I should haveshotoverpar,”Mickelson said. “I putted horrific. You’re going to make some bogeys, going to hit a couple of bad shots here and there. But I gave myself plenty of opportunities and just couldn’t get the ball in the hole.” He probably did not do enough damage to take himself out of the tournament. This, after all, was a day in which getting below par wasn’t impossible, but staying there was more difficult. Only two of the afternoon players, Brendon de Jonge and Matthew Richardson, were at 2 under. And only four more, including Paul Casey, were at 1 under. Watson was at 2 over after his first seven holes. “This course, it looks like it’s wide-open fairway, but in the teeing ground, in the mindset, you look right, look left, either way is very tough,” Choi said. “And you can’t stop in the bouncing, so you’re very scared on the tee shot.”

HOUSTON (AP) — About two dozen Texas lawmakers are supporting efforts to get the University of Houston admitted to the Big 12 Conference. State Reps. Garnet Coleman and Bill Callegari, both from the Houston area, co-wrote a letter Thursday asking Big 12 officials to consider adding the university to the conference. “UH is the third largest university in Texas, and is on track to rank among the top research universities in this state,” the letter says. “Despite UH’s local and statewide prominence, the university does not belong to a strong BCS conference such as the Big 12. The Cougars, the city of Houston, and the state of Texas deserve better.” Houston is a member of

Conference USA and was a member of the Southwest Conference until 1995. Conference USA officials did not immediately respond Thursday to messages left by The Associated Press. Big 12 officials said commissioner Dan Beebe was not available to comment. The Big 12 is set to lose two schools after Nebraska committed to the Big Ten and Colorado to the Pac-10. Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe has said the league has no plans to add any teams from within its fivestate area, which includes Texas. Coleman said he is not deterred by Beebe’s stance. “I don’t quit,” Coleman told the Houston Chronicle. “I don’t start something I’m not going to finish. If I didn’t think this was a wor-

thy endeavor, I wouldn’t have started it. This is the beginning of this effort, not the end.” Earlier this week, Oklahoma State athletic director Mike Holder said he believed any new member of the Big 12 would have to bring $15 million in value. “I don’t really think right now that there’s anybody that brings that kind of value, and then it would complicate matters if you had 11 schools,” he said. “I think 10’s a good number. I really believe that it gives our conference champion a better chance to advance to the BCS championship game.” ——— AP Sports Writer Jeff Latzke in Oklahoma City contributed to this report.

Get crafty for Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day The first celebration of a special day for fathers was on June 19, 1910 in Spokane, Wash. Sonora Smart Dodd wanted a way to honor fathers much as Motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day does mothers. Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day was slow to become popular and was not made an official national holiday in the United States until 1972. Gifts and cards have become the main way to honor dad. With a little imagination, give a gift that is more personal than a tie and lets the giver have fun as well. Here is an idea that is fun, easy, and uses household items or things found at the local craft shop. Does dad have a desk with pens and pencils rolling around? Does he have trouble finding something to write with when heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s on the phone? Make a neat pencil holder with a four-inchtall can from soup, juice or vegetables, yarn, craft sticks, craft acrylic paints, and maybe stickers. Clean the can well, making sure that there are no sharp edges on the rim. Remove the label. If you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get the label off you can paint the can and let dry. Cut four pieces of yarn each 24 inches long. Tie two pieces together approximately four inches from one end. Lay the yarn on a level surface (like a table top) and put one craft stick between the pieces of yarn.

Taking liberty with a Sherlock Holmesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; phrase, I must surmise, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The dogs are afoot!â&#x20AC;? News released at the American Medical Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual meeting in Chicago this week reports physicians are losing $15 billion a year due to inaccurate handling of insurance claims. And the federal governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 21.3 percent cut on physician reimbursements for Medicare patients that went into effect on June 1 is still pending, which is holding up Medicare claims processing while Congress decides whether or not to approve, alter or delay the cut again. And these are just some of the issues in the current healthcare debacle. Physicians do not comprise the majority of my readers, but I dare say that every reader has visited or will visit a physician. And everything that is occurring in healthcare affects all of us. According to a Chicago Tribune article, the AMA report not only spotlights physiciansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lost money but also emphasizes, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Improving claims processing could save patients money and improve medical care service.â&#x20AC;? According to journalistic wire reports, if you or a family member is a Medicare patient, you may have to find another physician. For example, Dr. Gregory Thomas, cardiologist at Mission Internal Medical Group in Mission Viejo, Calif., said his practice has enough cash flow to handle a monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s delay in billing. But if the cut goes through, the practice may have to withdraw from Medicare and become a concierge service, charging patients a retainer for access to physician care. Larry Epstein, manager of Pulmonary and Allergy Associates in Summit, N.J., said the practice would lose as much as $1 million a year if the cut goes into effect. Medicare comprises about 40 percent of the practiceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $14 million in revenue. He said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no way in a pulmonary practice that we could cut Medicare patients.â&#x20AC;? Dr. Jen Brull, family physician in Plainville, Kan., said when the government withheld payments briefly in April, the last time Congress delayed a fee fix, she saw a $10,000 drop in revenue. If the cut actually went into effect, she would have to work harder and longer but couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drop out of Medicare, which accounts for 22 percent of her patients and 35-40 percent of her income.

Submitted Report

Dr. Jason Marker, family physician in Wyatt, Ind., said dropping Medicare patients is not an option, but the pending cuts make him nervous about paying back a loan for remodeling his office and for his plans to take on a partner. A Sevier County physician told me that with staff and other overhead expenses, he had to see 36 patients a day to break even. He also said that as far as he knew no family practitioner in the county was accepting new Medicare patients. My interest in healthcare has peaked primarily because my son Carl II is co-founder/CEO of ClaimCare, Inc., a large medical billing company. I have led in several seminars for ClaimCareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff of approximately 75, and am aware of rumblings in healthcare. It has been my goal to help ClaimCare help physicians. A couple of blogs this week on www. deal with the Medicare reimbursement dilemma and with what Carl II titled: July 6 PECOS catastrophe fast approaching.

Ultimatum OK, but be prepared to walk away if he won’t commit



Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: I am 26 and have been seriously dating “Bryan” for four years. We have lived together most of that time and love each other deeply. Last year, Bryan was offered a promotion in another city and said he wouldn’t go unless I came along. I agreed, quit my job, depleted my savings and moved. Our relationship is strong. The problem is, Bryan refuses to talk about marriage. Every time I bring it up, he gets upset. The last time, I told Bryan I would not wait forever and gave him an ultimatum — he has until the end of this year to propose, or he will lose me. I am not eager to leave, and I’m not desperate to marry, but I would like to know marriage is in the near future so I can plan. My biological clock is ticking, and I feel that if I don’t speak up, nothing will ever happen. Do you agree? — Tired of Waiting Dear Tired: If you want marriage, you will have to push Bryan into it or get out of the relationship and find someone else. So yes, your ultimatum makes sense. But you must be prepared to walk if he doesn’t come through. You have been with this man for four years and are entitled to know his intentions. But if he is incapable of discussing marriage without becoming upset, we don’t hold out a lot of hope. Dear Annie: I am 14 years old and get along great with my parents, except for one thing. I don’t want to play football anymore. Every time I bring up the possibility of not playing next year, my parents say I need

structure and exercise. Right now, my team is having non-mandatory workouts twice a week. I go because they make me, and I try my hardest, but honestly, I hate it. During the actual season, it’s hard for me to finish school projects and homework, especially on game nights when we don’t get home until late. Please help me out. — No More Football Dear NMF: Sometimes parents don’t realize how much pressure they put on a child when one of the parents has an idealized version of what their child should be. If your folks want you to be physically active and aren’t particular about the sport, perhaps you can find something else that you enjoy more. If it is specifically football, talk to your coach and also the school counselor, and ask them to intercede on your behalf. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Bummed Out in Bradenton, Fla.,” whose son served time on drug charges and, although he appeared eager to change his life, has not found work or done anything since his release. I hope Dad won’t give up on him. Our son was arrested 18 months ago on drug charges and fought his addiction. But after his release, the depression set in. His doctor and psychologist explained that the depression would last

longer than the addiction. I actually prayed for the morning when our son would get up and shower without being told to do so. He showers now and brushes his teeth and gets to work on time. Last week, he handed me a little money to help with groceries, and I almost cried. He’s not entirely OK, but he’s moving steadily forward. In order to succeed and stay clean, your son has to leave behind the crowd he hung out with. Our son’s network of friends is slim now, which means he needs our support more than ever. Attending self-help meetings has been a struggle, so he has private sessions with doctors who are willing to work with us on payments. Please, Dad, stay involved with your son. You can’t imagine how much he needs you. And don’t hesitate to get some help for yourself. — Burned Out, Too Dear Burned Out: Your son is extremely lucky to have parents who stand by his side and work with his doctors. We hope he will win this battle. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
