this week that no one had been charged and they were not ready to name a suspect. Dunn told The Mountain Press Thursday that he’d asked the state law enforcement agency to be involved in the case. “I did ask for a TBI investigation,” he said. The case is being investigated as a potential homicide; no other

details have been released. A caller to The Mountain Press who didn’t provide a name but appeared to be familiar with the case said the shooting was an accident. It is typical for authorities to pursue deaths by gunshot wound as homicides until the evidence shows whether or not they were. n jfarrell@themountainpress

GATLINBURG — On a night when Gatlinburg got a new mayor, the City Commission approved a $508,000 grant with the state for the next phase of the downtown undergrounding project. M i k e H e l t o n was elected mayor and Mike Werner vice mayor to start the Helton meeting; each will serve through June 2011. Helton was elevated from vice mayor. He replaces Jerry Hays, who ended his term at Tuesday night’s meeting. Both Helton and Werner praised Hays for his leadership over the past 12 months. “It’s a trying job sometimes,” Helton said of being mayor. Gatlinburg voters don’t elect a mayor; the five commissioners choose a mayor from among themselves, just as Pigeon Forge does. During the meeting the commission approved the grant with the Tennessee Department of Transportation for phase 6 of the undergrounding project, which involves moving electrical lines below the ground throughout the downtown area. Work on the next phase won’t begin until November 2011, consulting engineer Steve Fritts of Barge Waggoner Sumner & Cannon Inc. said. The commission also See grant, Page A4

Man faces petty charges in park bear incident By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer NATIONAL PARK — The man whose interaction with a bear on Laurel Falls Trail last month led to the animal being euthanized has been charged with a minor offense in the incident. Sean Konover, 26, of Wilton, Conn., is facing a petty charge of disturbing an animal, filed

in federal court, where charges related to the park, which is federal land, are handled. Konover is likely to have his first chance to face the charge in August, a court official reported. Until news of the charge came out, Konover was the only one of the two involved in the May 12 whose name was not publicly known. After his encounter with the juvenile female bear, the

creature was given the name Laurel by concerned animal lovers who started a campaign to save her life. According to national park spokeswoman Nancy Gray, visitors to Laurel Falls had been feeding the bear for some time, to the point where the animal was known to come regularly to the trail to eat. Having received reports of what park officials

call a “food-conditioned bear,” that is one that is comfortable with humans because it has learned they can provide its meals, rangers began patrolling the area in an effort to stop the interactions. Unfortunately, those efforts were unsuccessful, mainly because the rangers couldn’t be on the trail all day every See bear, Page A4

MARYVILLE — Board members of the Gatlinburg Scottish Festival and Games Inc., will move their annual event from Mills Park in Gatlinburg to the Maryville College campus in 2011. The event, scheduled for May 20-22, will be hosted jointly by the college and the City of Maryville. “The Maryville College facilities, location and the school’s Scottish ties, as well as the support promised to the games by all parties, made this a perfect fit for us,� said Clifford Fitzsimmons, president of the non-profit organization. “From a crowd capacity standpoint, our games had simply outgrown the space available in Mills Park.� Fitzsimmons added that his board also voted to change the name of the event to the Smoky Mountain Highland Games and the non-profit’s name to reflect the change in location. Last month, the Gatlinburg Scottish Festival and Games hosted its 29th celebration, which was attended by more than 3,000 paid attendees, according to the president. The schedule for the three-day event typically includes a banquet, athletics, pipe and drum band competitions, dance competitions, Scottish entertainers and children’s activities. Celtic-themed vendors sell a variety of Scottish items, including clothing, jewelry, music and food. Fitzsimmons said several games in the South have been affected by the economy, but not the one held in Gatlinburg. “We have been fortunate to have been able to hold firm and expand what we offer,� he said. “Hopes are high, however, that the added space and convenience of Maryville will help these Games grow even larger.� The facilities committed by the college include the varsity soccer field, the football practice field, intramural fields and adjacent green spaces, the McArthur Pavilion and the House in the Woods. “The College has an established relationship with the games’ board,� said Gerald W. Gibson, president of Maryville College. “Members use our facilities for meetings, and they have joined with us in planning Scottish-themed celebrations. When discussions turned to hosting their big annual event here on campus, we were extremely interested. “Given the college’s founding by Scots-Irish Presbyterians and our strong Scottish heritage, we believe our hosting will be a win-win for the college, the games’ organization, the City of Maryville and the wider Blount County community,� he said.

Make sure home canned foods safe Would you like to enjoy nature’s bounty from the summer garden all year long? If you are planning to preserve foods at home this summer, there are a few questions you might have about the safety of home canned foods. Q. Can jars of food spoil after being sealed for several weeks or months? A. If you follow the instructions given in Extension and USDA tested recipes for processing canned foods and they seal correctly, they should not spoil. The processing times provided in these recipes should be long enough to kill disease-causing and spoilage microorganisms. However, it is important to store your canned foods in a cool, dry place. The ideal temperature is 50 to 70 degrees. High temperatures cause canned food to lose quality. Low temperatures may cause your food to freeze, which can crack your jars or break the seals. If your storage area becomes too cold, wrap your jars in paper or cover them with a

immersed in water for 30 minutes, if the seals are broken. Throw the jars of food in the trash after they have cooled. If the jars are still sealed, throw them in the trash.

State promoting moonshine-NASCAR trail By BILL POOVEY Associated Press Writer

Knoxvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Market Square and Old City and the Museum of Appalachia between Clinton and Norris. There are also historic homes, antique and crafts stores, restaurants and natural attractions, some of which overlook the Cumberland Gap. Along the way thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a motel owner who might be persuaded to tell the sad tale of how he saw his moonshiner daddy shot dead in a long-ago raid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Visitors will travel some of the same routes ... bootleggers used to transport moonshine, a distilled corn whiskey also known as â&#x20AC;&#x2122;white lightning,â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; according to a statement promoting the event. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To outrun tax collectors, bootleggers altered their cars from the original factory design so they could reach much higher speeds.â&#x20AC;? Tennessee Department of Tourist Development Assistant Commissioner Jennifer Spence said she knows of no other such government-sponsored tourism attraction based on moonshine and

CHATTANOOGA â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tennessee tourism officials see gold in them there hills where moonshine stills once bubbled and bootleggers hauled illegal whiskey in fast cars. They are trying to lure free-spending visitors to retrace the mountain roads where â&#x20AC;&#x153;white lightningâ&#x20AC;? helped give birth to NASCAR. The newly dubbed White Lightning Trail traverses a network of roadways that span hundreds of miles across nine counties in northeast Tennessee. Tourism officials who launched the promotion Friday in Knoxville were quick â&#x20AC;&#x201D; even a bit defensive â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in saying the trail name is â&#x20AC;&#x153;not about promoting moonshine.â&#x20AC;? The trailâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s notorious name helps highlight a regional heritage that includes the hometowns of famous country musicians such as â&#x20AC;&#x153;King of Country Musicâ&#x20AC;? Roy Acuff at Maynardville and Chet Atkins at Luttrell. There is

The White Lightning Trail is one of 16 self-guided driving trails that have opened or are being developed and is intended to be a â&#x20AC;&#x153;fun attraction ride.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is a culture of that area,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Part of that was to come up with a fun name like that.â&#x20AC;? The stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s promotional material also notes that moonshine running gave birth to stock car racing, which grew into the popular NASCAR. One stop includes a visit with a self-described teetotaler who recounts that he saw his moonshiner daddy shot dead in a raid in upper East Tennessee in 1943. Seventy-four-year-old Hack Ayers owns motels along the trail in Caryville and hopes to cash in on the new tourist venture. He will display the jacket his father was wearing when shot by a state patrolman. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think they are trying to copy off â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thunder Road,â&#x20AC;? Ayers said in a telephone interview, referring to a 1958 movie about moonshining.

25 years for sex trafficking

MEMPHIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Memphis man who pleaded guilty to child prostitution charges as part of a nationwide investigation has been sentenced to 25 years in federal prison. Leonard Fox also received 10 years probation at sentencing in U.S. District Court on Wednesday. Fox pleaded guilty in February 2009 to sex trafficking of minors. The 43-year-old Fox acknowledged recruiting and obtaining underage girls to engage in commercial sex acts for his financial benefit.

Vegas benefits from Nashville woes

NASHVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Gaylord Entertainment CEO Colin Reed says Las Vegas has been a major beneficiary of the convention businesses the Gaylord Opryland Resort and Convention Center had to cancel because of last monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s floods. The hotel had 320,000 room nights booked between the beginning of May and the end of October. Some of those guests went to other Nashville hotels or to Gaylord hotels in other cities, but the majority did neither. Speaking at a Thursday news conference, Reed said he was not concerned about losing business to Las Vegas over the long term.

to have approached the bear to get a picture of it. Gray said witness reports indicate Konover actually stopped some distance from the animal, which then approached him and eventually struck his left foot, leaving only minor injuries. Contrary to those statements from other Laurel Falls hikers that day, the federal citation reportedly alleges Konover approached to within a foot of the bear, which then turned on him.

Either way, the fact Konover and the others were too close and the fact he could have moved away from the bear as it approached are good reason to file charges, Gray said. Far from just being a means to punish Konover for the incident, which led to the bearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being put down a week later according to park service policies, the charge is also an attempt to educate the public about the fact approaching wild animals in

the park is illegal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When someone is cited for an activity that is illegal, hopefully people will learn from that incident,â&#x20AC;?

Paul Weyman Brown Sr.

A belated Fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Day Memorial for a man who exceeded what being a father is all about. The love and compassion he could show at times; and yet discipline too. Pop, you would do things for others without any thought of future rewards. You just cared. Your two hands held more talent than anyone could possibly believe. Your art speaks for itself. I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t count how many times you took care of me in the worst situations. Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll never know how much I love you. I miss you being around. Lucky and I miss your smiling face. He sends you a lick in heaven. I can honestly say that I had the best father God could give a son. Thank you for everything. Your legacy will live on! Love, Your son, Dennis C Brown

Judge refuses to delay ruling on drilling ban in the Gulf of Mexico NEW ORLEANS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A federal judge who overturned a six-month moratorium on deepwater drilling imposed after the Gulf oil spill refused Thursday to put his ruling on hold while the government appeals. The Justice Department had asked U.S. District Judge Martin Feldman to delay his ruling until the 5th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals in New Orleans can review it. Feldman rejected that request Thursday. On Tuesday, he struck down the Interior Departmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moratorium that halted approval of new permits for deepwater projects and suspended drilling on 33 exploratory wells. Feldman concluded the government simply assumed that because one deepwater rig went up in flames, others were dangerous too. The moratorium was imposed after the offshore oil rig Deepwater Horizon exploded April 20, killing 11 workers. Oil has been gushing from the blownout well ever since. The Justice Department said in court papers that Interior Secretary Ken Salazar has instructed all employees not to enforce the moratorium. Rig operators are getting letters that say suspension notices they received have no legal effect right now. But the Justice Department argues that delaying Feldmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling would eliminate the risk of another drilling accident while new safety equipment standards and procedures are considered. Feldman had agreed to hold an emergency hearing by phone Thursday on a motion filed by several oilfield service companies

who say the Obama administration is ignoring his ruling. But the judge informed attorneys only minutes before the call that he would rule without hearing oral arguments. The hearing would not have been open to the public. Separately, a number of environmental groups asked the court to release additional information about Feldmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial interests. The judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s financial disclosure report for 2008, the most recent available, shows holdings in at least eight petroleum companies or funds that invest in them, including Transocean Ltd., which owned the Deepwater Horizon. The report shows most of his holdings were valued at less than $15,000; it did not provide specific amounts. The environmental groups want to know whether Feldman has a financial interest that could be substantially affected by the outcome of the proceeding. If so, he could be forced to disqualify himself from the case.

Some potential Apple customers wait in double lines formed on the second floor at Lenox Mall on Thursday in Atlanta.

Appleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s iPhone4 flying off shelves By JESSICA MINTZ AP Technology Writer SEATTLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The iPhone 4 has arrived, but for some people the wait continues as Apple sprints to keep up with fierce demand for its latest gadget. From Tokyo to San Francisco, some stores started selling out of Apple Inc.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s newest iPhone just hours after it went on sale Thursday. Some would-be buyers walked away disappointed; tensions grew at Apple stores that hadnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run out. In Aventura, Fla., Loren and Veronica McHenry held out hope, even after miscommunications landed them at the back of the line. They were told Wednesday that no one

even people who reserved a phone waited in line for eight hours or more. Outside New Yorkâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fifth Avenue store, Jasmine Cordova, 25, said that given the hype and advertisements surrounding the launch, â&#x20AC;&#x153;they should make sure to stock enough.â&#x20AC;? It seems even Apple was surprised by the number of people who wanted to snap up the fourth version of the iPhone. More than 600,000 had rushed to pre-order iPhones on the first day they were available, prompting Apple and its exclusive wireless partner in the U.S., AT&T Inc., to stop taking orders for pickup or shipment by Thursdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s launch. On Appleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s website, new orders werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t promised for delivery until July 14.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Thankfulâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; message from Obama aide irked Blag CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rod Blagojevich became bitter when told that he would receive thanks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but nothing else â&#x20AC;&#x201D; from Barack Obama in return for naming a friend of the newly elected president to the Senate, according to an FBI tape played Thursday at the former governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s corruption trial. Blagojevichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trial proceeded after Judge James B. Zagel turned down a defense request for a delay following a new Supreme Court decision in a different case limiting the use of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;honest servicesâ&#x20AC;? law â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the basis for some charges against Blagojevich.

was allowed on mall property overnight, but returned the next day to learn 120 people had camped out at a nearby parking lot. As the crowd pushed closer to the store, Apple employees started yelling that the fire marshal was going to shut the store down unless people moved back. The McHenrys were shoved out of place and behind a large group of people who refused to budge from their spots. Loren McHenry, 42, said two men in front of them threatened to fight each other rather than move, and guards sent a handful of people home for cutting in line. After 11 hours, the couple finally had iPhones, but Veronica McHenry vowed to pre-order to avoid such a scene in the future. At other stores,

With former Blagojevich chief of staff John Harris on the stand, prosecutors played an FBI tape on which Harris is heard telling the governor that the Obama camp sent word that it would be â&#x20AC;&#x153;thankful and appreciativeâ&#x20AC;? if Valerie Jarrett were appointed to the Senate seat. Jarrett, a Chicago busi-

nesswoman and former aide to Mayor Richard M. Daley, was a longtime Obama family friend and the presidentelect wanted her to have the Senate seat he was leaving. Blagojevich had allegedly sent word through a labor union official that he would appoint Jarrett if Obama agreed to appoint him as secretary of health and

human services. Blagojevich apparently took the words â&#x20AC;&#x153;thankful and appreciativeâ&#x20AC;? as a sign that the Obama camp didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want such a deal. Jarrett later withdrew her name and is now a White House adviser, and Blagojevich named former Illinois Attorney General Roland Burris to the Senate.

26 alleged Bloods affiliates indicted NASHVILLE (AP) — A federal grand jury has indicted 26 alleged members and associates of an infamous street gang on various charges, including conspiracies to participate in a racketeering enterprise and to commit murder in aid of racketeering. Jerry Martin, the top federal prosecutor for Middle Tennessee, was joined Thursday by federal, state and local authorities in announcing the indictments. He said 21 of those indicted have been arrested.

“We believe the individuals named in the indictment have been responsible for multiple attempted murder conspiracies and numerous violent crimes in the Nashville area,” Martin said. According to the indictment, the defendants were part of the Bloods, a violent street gang that originated in Los Angeles in the 1970s and ultimately migrated to other cities, including Nashville. From 2006 to this month, the gang members conspired to commit crimes including



attempted murders and murders, robberies, narcotics trafficking, bribery and extortion, the indictment said. The indictment also alleges that a local nonprofit organization — Galaxy Star Drug Awareness and Gang Prevention Center — was used to conduct gang meetings and provide some gang members with “fraudulent certification” of community service. In February, Bloods gang members met and discussed retaliating against a rival Crips gang for rob-

bing one of their own. “At approximately 4:27 p.m., an individual was assaulted by numerous Bloods gang members. Shortly thereafter, several Bloods gang members ... shot and wounded two known individuals who were sitting in a vehicle” in Nashville, the indictment said. Authorities would only refer to the indictment when pressed by reporters on whether the community should be concerned about such a public facility being used for gang activity.

Brit backing of war effort seems fragile The 300th British soldier was killed in Afghanistan last week, which means that, proportionately, Great Britain is paying a higher price in manpower and money out there. That’s 300 dead in a 10,000-troop commitment compared with the United States’ 1,126 deaths with a commitment of more than 94,000 troops right now. The debate in London — “Why are we in Afghanistan?” — seems more heated over there, but the essentials of the arguments are about the same. The new British prime minister, David Cameron, marked the death of the Royal Marine in a place called Sangin by saying: “It is a moment, I think, for the whole country to reflect on the incredible service and sacrifice and dedication that our armed services give on our behalf. “We are paying a high price for keeping our country safe, for making our world a safer place, and we should keep asking why we are there and how long we must be there. “The truth is that we are there because the Afghans are not yet ready to keep their own country safe and to keep terrorists and terrorist training camps out of their country. That’s why we have to be there. But as soon as they are able to take care of security for their own country, that is when we can leave.” So the Brits are still on board. Cameron and Obama are saying about the same thing these days. The important difference is the new prime minister emphasized that his people should keep asking, “Why? Why? Why?” They are a tough people; it has always seemed to me that their virtues and vices add up to the same things: stubborn, determined, obstinate, pig-headed. I have always been a bit of an Anglophobe, perhaps because I lived in France for years, but I developed a tremendous admiration for them over the last three years, working on a book about the Berlin Blockade and Airlift of 1948-49. The impossible adventure of feeding and maintaining more than 2 million desperate people, enemies but three years before, by air for 11 months was actually a British idea, seized on with American determination and courage by President Truman. When it was over, one-third of the 2.5 million tons of food, fuel, medicine and raw materials that kept West Berlin alive and working was delivered by British planes and pilots, even though they had far fewer resources than we did. More than that, there were times when food rationing in London (which only ended in 1952) was stricter than for West Berliners. This is how rough it has been for Britain in this new, doomed adventure. In Sangin, a poppy-growing town of perhaps 15,000 people in Helmand province, more than 10 percent of all NATO casualties are being suffered by the Royal Army’s 3 Rifles Battle Group — even though that group represents less than 1 percent of NATO strength in the country. In other words, the group is taking 12 times the casualties of all other NATO units. Of the 300 British soldiers killed in Afghanistan, 96 died in Sangin, mostly victims of improvised explosive devices. “Sangingrad” soldiers are calling it, comparing it to the German siege of Stalingrad. Actually, the first time British rifles came to Sangin was in 1878; it was the scene of one of the first battles of what the British call the Second Anglo-Afghan War. They came back this time as early as the summer of 2006 to beseige the town, which has always been a Taliban stronghold. Always determined. Always brave. Always stubborn. But for how long this time? The conservative journal The Economist said this last week: “It is hard to escape the conclusion that the war is now mainly an American show, with the British playing a side role. To British critics of the war, this is the time to start withdrawing British forces. ... The Dutch and Canadians are already preparing to leave, and America itself has promised to start drawing down troops from July 2011.” That seems to mean the British will always stand by us — until or as we leave. — Richard Reeves, a presidential scholar and expert on six presidents, is the author of several books, including profiles of Richard Nixon and John Kennedy.

Tell it on the mountain Junior Rangers good example of park programs To experience the magnificence of the Great Smoky Mountains, all one must do is find a spot in the valley that offers an unimpeded view and look to the east. There, rising to a height of 6,593 feet above sea level is Mount LeConte, the highest point in eastern Tennessee, its majesty ever so breathtaking when snow caps its peaks during the late fall, winter and early spring. But there is much more to the Smokies. There are so many natural wonders and ways to enjoy the park — whether it is hiking along the hundreds of trails, the miracle of the fall foliage, seeing the waterfalls, picnicking or just communing with nature. For example, through Aug. 14 the park is offering dozens of free handson activities for children ages 5-12 through its Junior Ranger program. Children can make their own dinner bell in a 19th century blacksmith shop, create a piece of Cherokee pot-

tery or wade in streams to find salamanders. Upon completing the series of activities, children are sworn in as Junior Rangers, receiving a badge and a certificate. There are many more activities assisted by park personnel. They range from lectures and group discussions to watching sunrises and sunsets to demonstrations of everything from blacksmithing to quiliting. A sample: n Wild by Design — A 30-minute talk and hands-on demonstration about the wild things in the park. n Cades Cove Early Bird and Evening hayrides — Join a ranger for two-hour open-air hayride in the Cove. n Heritage Hunt — A ranger gives a one-hour program meant to discover the stories, mysteries and provide insight cemeteries tell about community life in the Cove. n Cades Cove Mill Area Walk — A 30-minute, ranger-led walk through

several of the historic structures. n Mingus Mill Demonstration — Chat with a miller and feel the rumble of this historic grist mill in action. n Mountain Farm Museum, adjacent to the Oconaluftee Visitor Center, allows people to walk down to the open air museum for a glimpse into the past. n Fishy Facts — What kinds of fish are native to the Appalachian streams? A ranger leads a short walk near the Oconaluftee River. There are many other activities offered for youngsters and adults. They vary in physical difficulty. Some are free, while some have modest fees. It has been said that people often ignore the wonderful things in their home areas that others travel hours and hours and hundreds of miles to see. With the extra mile the national park staff goes to make it user-friendly, it would be a shame to not take advantage.

Political view

Public forum Many of our churches have become entertainment centers

Editor: How saddened God must be when He looks down from heaven and sees what a mess man has made of His beautiful creation. Never before has there been a time when people need to turn to God for guidance. The devil knows his time is limited here; he is doing all he can to plant seeds of doubt and confusion in our churches. Since Satan cannot keep salvation from anyone who believes or wants to believe, he tries to ensure that people will either be too emotionally handicapped to be an effective witness, or too broken to avoid falling into some sort of scandalous sin. Satan’s hope for Christians is that we will either be so ineffective we will have no testimony or we’ll ruin the one we have. I believe we are seeing that today, In many churches there is much quarreling, jealously, outbursts of anger, selfishness,

back-stabbing, gossip and conceit, and when the outside world sees this among churchgoing people, it’s hard to be a witness. When we are saved, we forsake the sinful life for a new way of life. We replace that sinful, hardened heart for a humble, loving, caring heart. When we can become grieved by the ungodly things around us, we will know that Christ is working in us through the Holy Spirit. We do not do insult to repay an insult; neither do we do wrong to repay wrong. The way we treat other people says a lot about who we are. Many people are quick to point a finger at someone else or say God told them to do it; we need to take responsibility for our actions. God is not the author of confusion. The Apostle Paul wrote about difficult times that would come in the last days. Anyone can follow a form of religion, but only those who put faith and trust in Jesus Christ, and not man, will have a daily relationship with Him and truly know that lifechanging spiritual power.

If we have a problem with someone in the church, we had better fix it while we are still able, because if we are lucky enough to get to heaven, I don’t believe God has reserved a “time-out” corner for us to go and pout. There are far too many preachers, deacons and teachers today that need to refresh their memory by reading 1st Timothy, Chapter 3 and see what it says about the qualifications for elders and deacons. Many of our churches have become an entertainment center, and what used to be a place where we could go and worship God in love and peace, has become more like a war zone. I don’t understand why people in churches today can’t get along and love one another. We Christians need to come together in one accord, expressing love for one another, being strong in the Lord. When one door closes, God opens a better one. We need to dwell on God’s promises of hope and victory. Mary E. Patterson Sevierville

Murphy: baseball numbers becoming more realistic By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer SEVIERVILLE — Atlanta Braves baseball legend Dale Murphy has never been one to shy away from the steroid problem in Major League Baseball, but Thursday afternoon the former two-time MLB League MVP said the game is beginning to get back on the right track, though it still has a ways to go. Nearing the halfway point of the current MLB season, “20 homers is leading the league,” said Murphy, who returned to Smokies Park for the second consecutive year to meet, greet and eat with fans and the media. “So the numbers are starting to become a little more realistic, and that’s a good thing. “Baseball doesn’t need the home run to survive. It’s a great game without it. People appreciate defensive plays, stolen bases, bunts ... it’s all part of the game. It shouldn’t be about sitting around like a softball game on the weekend when everybody is trying to hit home runs.” Murphy eluded to the great St. Louis Cardinals teams he played against throughout his career. Those Redbirds were loaded with speed from top to bottom, including the likes of Vince Coleman, Willie McGee and Ozzie Smith. “They had six or seven guys that stole at least 50 bases a year,” said Murphy. “We used to say that by the time the

National Anthem was finished playing, the Cardinals will have the bases loaded with Pedro Guerrero coming to the plate. I mean, they were

that fast. Back in the ‘80s (and early ‘90s), when one of them hit a ball that should be a double, the thought was to hold them to a triple. If you

they were going to play football because they run a four-something 40. There’s opportunities in baseball, especially if it’s not all about home-run hitters.” Murphy said there have been enough skeletons removed from the MLB closet already, and getting past the “steroid era” is what needs to be done now. “There’s a lot of blame that can be placed around, but I don’t place blame,” said Murphy. “I’m more interested in solving the problem. “We know guys were taking (steroids). So what? Should we go back ... and find out somebody who pitched six games in the Majors took steroids. So what? This is a waste. Let’s figure out what the problem is and address it. Let’s just solve the problem.” Murphy said he supports lifetime bans for steroid use, much like how the game of baseball has banned one of its greatest players — Pete Rose — for gambling. “If they had that for steroids, I guarantee that a lot of guys wouldn’t risk taking them,” said Murphy, who suggests a three-strikes policy for the league. “Now we have 50-game suspensions (for a first offense) and then a 100-game suspension ... it wouldn’t be a bad thing to kick them out of the league after three strikes. “At least that would send a strong message to the league and to young See MURPHY, Page A12


Give U.S. soccer a shot this Saturday By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor

Hamish Blair/AP

John Isner, left, of the US walks with opponent France’s Nicolas Mahut off the court following their epic men’s singles match at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships at Wimbledon, Thursday, June 24.

70-68 in 5th! Isner beats Mahut at Wimbledon American wins longest match in Grand Slam history By HOWARD FENDRICH AP Tennis Writer WIMBLEDON, England — When The Match That Would Not End finally did, at 70-68 in the fifth set, after a record 11 hours, 5 minutes spread over three days, the customary handshake between opponents simply would not suffice. So when John Isner of

the United States won the longest match in tennis history and went to the net to greet Nicolas Mahut of France, who — for lack of a better word — lost Thursday at Wimbledon, Isner pulled Mahut in for a hug. “You know,” Isner told the crowd moments later, “it stinks someone had to lose.” Quite true. There were 980 points overall, and Mahut won more, 502-478. There were 711 points in the fifth set, and Mahut won more, 365-346.

But Isner (IHZ-ner) won the most important point of all: the last one, which happened to be a rather nondescript backhand winner down the line. It allowed Isner to break Mahut’s serve for only the second time all match. That also was the only service break of the seemingly interminable fifth set, ending a run of 168 consecutive holds that began in the second set, all the way back on Tuesday. Essentially, the match lasted as long as it did for two reasons: Neither man could break the other’s

serve, and Wimbledon does not employ a tiebreaker in the fifth set. “Especially once the match got past, you know, 25-all, I wasn’t really thinking,” said Isner, who led the University of Georgia to the 2007 NCAA team tennis championship. “Hitting a serve and trying to hit a forehand winner is the only thing I was doing.” When it did conclude, Isner dropped down to the court, rolled on his See MARATHON MATCH, Page A10

I can remember as kid the taboo connected to four-letter words. Cursing, more commonly referred to as cussin’ where I’m from, was the quickest way for a young thug to gain street credibility with his trashmouthed buddies as well as the quickest way to draw the ire of most parents, mine included. Over the past couple of decades movies and pop culture have unfortunately made cursing a more accepted practice — just listen to the words blaring out of your local neighbor low-rider. But there are still words that can make many folks around here cringe. Over the past few weeks, I’ve found out that soccer is one of those words. For every person I meet who, like me, is enjoying the athleticism and artistry of the World Cup, I meet at least three or four that loath “the beautiful game.” At least they think they hate it. One thing I’ve found to be mostly true over the past few weeks is that “I hate soccer — it’s so boring,” is really synonymous with “I don’t understand soccer, and I don’t care to learn.” I, too, at one point in my life probably would have said the same thing. Once upon a time

I was a kid in a place called Campbell County, about 70 miles away from Sevierville and as far from the center of the soccer universe as philosophically possible. When I was growing up there were zero soccer leagues for kids — none. In fact, the one soccer ball I remember seeing back then was a neon orange one we used for kickball on the fields of Jacksboro Elementary. I do remember in high school a group of my buddies, relocated from Florida, tried to get the administration to let them start a soccer team. If I remember correctly, they were encouraged to go out for football. My first real experience with soccer came in college, watching my fraternity’s team pummel our opponents for two straight intramural championships. Unversed in the rules, I was content to essentially stand on the sidelines and ridicule opponents. But in one game with a comfortable 4-0 lead, I was in playing defense. I quickly had a newfound respect for that “boring” game. Slowly, I started watching some matches, beginning with the ‘98 World Cup. See SOCCER, Page A10

and kicked his legs in the air. After the players briefly spoke, Mahut sat in his changeover chair, stared blankly ahead, then draped a purple-and-yellow Wimbledon towel over his head. “It’s really painful,” Mahut said. The 23rd seeded Isner’s 6-4, 3-6, 6-7 (7), 7-6 (3), 70-68 victory — yes, that’s 70-68, not 7-6; sure reads like a typo, huh? — was merely a first-round match between two relatively unheralded players. Yet it will be remembered far more distinctly, and discussed far more frequently, than many a Grand Slam final, not because of the stakes, certainly, or the quality of play, necessarily, but because of all the math involved. “The numbers,” Mahut said, “speak for themselves.” To wit: The 183 games and total time, both far beyond the existing records of 112 and 6:33. The 138 games and 8:11 in the fifth set alone, also records. Isner’s 112 aces in the match, and Mahut’s 103, both much higher than the old mark of 78. The combined 490 winners (Isner had more, 246-244) and only 91 unforced errors (Isner had more, 52-39). “We played the greatest match ever, in the greatest place to play tennis,” said Mahut, who is ranked 148th and went through qualifying. “I thought he would make a mistake. I waited for that moment, and it never came.” Instead, Mahut faltered — 46 hours, 39 minutes after the first point was played — and later acknowledged his abdominal muscles were aching Thursday. Both men showed remarkable resilience, even if they moved increasingly slowly. They began at 6:09 p.m. Tuesday, but action was suspended after the fourth set because of darkness. And following 7 hours, 6 minutes of play Wednesday, the match was suspended again at 59-59 in the final set. At some juncture as daylight was turning to dusk Wednesday, Isner said, “I was completely delirious. ... Even though it was dark, and no one could see, I wanted a final verdict, win or lose. I didn’t want to have to sleep on it. But it wasn’t to be.” Indeed, they had to come back Thursday afternoon, when another 20 games — the equivalent of at least two sets — and another 1 hour, 5 minutes, were required to wrap things up at 4:48 p.m. “I’m tired watching this,” kidded three-time Wimbledon champion John McEnroe, who took it in from a third-row seat. “It’s Herculean what they’re doing. ... I had to come pay my respects.” While Mahut remained mostly straightfaced and silent Thursday, Isner was constantly muttering to himself after missing shots. His coach, Craig Boynton, kept imploring Isner, yelling, “That’s the right stuff, kid!” or “You’ll get your look, kid!” Eventually, Isner did. Coming out of a change-

John Isner of the US reacts as he defeats France’s Nicolas Mahut, in their epic men’s singles match at the All England Lawn Tennis Championships at Wimbledon, Thursday, June 24. over ahead 69-68, he got to 15-all when Mahut pushed a forehand long. On the next point, Mahut hit a poor drop shot that hit the net, then yanked at his hair and grimaced, the score now 15-30. His volley winner made it 30-all, but Mahut would not win another point. Isner smacked a forehand passing winner down the line to earn his fifth match point of the fifth set — he had wasted four such chances Wednesday — and shook his fists, while Mahut rolled his eyes. And then, in a blink, it was over, thanks to Isner’s last backhand. “It was the will to win. Not that I outwilled him; I mean, obviously, he gave it his all,” Isner said. “I just kind of was a little bit more fortunate than he was.” As he basked in the crowd’s standing ovation, Isner made sure to point in Mahut’s direction and applaud, too. There were moments the night before when Isner wasn’t sure he’d be standing at the end. Mom wasn’t so sure, either. “At the end of yesterday, I was worried,” Isner’s mother, Karen, who sat in the stands, said Thursday. “He was kind of stumbling around, and I was kind of worried. My friends had to sort of hold me back, because I was kind of inclined to go on the court and go, ’OK. That’s it. We’re done here.”’ Understandably, both men

were wiped out Wednesday night. Isner “was incoherent” for 20 minutes, according to Boynton. Isner and Mahut tried to recover as best they could, with ice baths and massages, by drinking and eating plenty. Andy Roddick, the 2003 U.S. Open champion who played earlier Wednesday, went out and got an assortment of takeout food for Isner and his coach, including pizzas, chicken and mashed potatoes. The 25-year-old Isner, of Tampa, Fla., was heretofore best known — if known at all — for upsetting fellow American Roddick in the U.S. Open’s third round last year, and never before had won a match at the All England Club. The 28-yearold Mahut’s biggest accomplishment probably was his Wimbledon junior title in 2000; as a pro, he’s only once been to the third round at any Grand Slam tournament. So it was understandable that neither managed more than about three or four hours of sleep Wednesday night, anxious about getting back out there. After all, cozy Court 18 might have only 782 seats, but it had become their big stage. “Not often do I steal the show from a guy like Federer, but I think I did,” Isner said.

the fellow pros gushing about the enormity of this match. “I knew it was probably a big deal around the tennis world, because this is Wimbledon, so anybody that follows tennis, all eyes are on this tournament,” Isner said. “It was when I got back to the locker room that I realized, you know, how big of a story it was, really, worldwide.” And there’s no rest for the weary now. Isner is due at Court 5 on Friday at noon (7 a.m. EDT) to face 49thranked Thiemo de Bakker of the Netherlands, whose own first-round victory normally would be considered something extraordinary, because it went to 16-14 in the fifth set. Ha! 16-14! How mundane. Whatever else Isner or Mahut may accomplish in tennis, however many matches or titles each may win, they forever will be associated with these three days at the All England Club and one particular score: 70-68. Isner recognizes that. He also is intent on adding to his resume. “This one’s obviously going to stick with me probably the rest of my life, really. But I hope it doesn’t define my career.”

Ruling in drug case could clear two Vikes to play MINNEAPOLIS (AP) — The Minnesota Court of Appeals has rejected the NFL’s request to expedite its handling of the case of Minnesota Vikings Kevin Williams and Pat Williams, which means the defensive tackles may get to play the entire upcoming season. The players are fighting a closely watched legal battle that so far has blocked the NFL from suspending them for four games apiece

for testing positive for a banned diuretic in 2008. The Williamses, who are not related, were in training camp when they took a weight loss supplement called StarCaps, which contained the diuretic bumetanide but did not list it on the label. The NFL bans bumetanide because it can mask the presence of steroids, though it never accused the two players of taking steroids.

Kentucky’s Wall is No. 1

Slovakia ready for more upsets after beating Italy

Point guard is first Wildcat to be selected with NBA’s top pick

By ROB HARRIS AP Sports Writer

By BRIAN MAHONEY AP Basketball Writer

NEW YORK (AP) — The Washington Wizards selected John Wall with the No. 1 pick in the NBA draft Thursday as they quickly began rebuilding their backcourt. The SEC player of the year is the first Kentucky player ever chosen first overall. He goes to a Washington team hoping to quickly bounce back after a disastrous season that included Gilbert Arenas’ season-ending suspension for bringing guns into the team locker room. Wall could replace Arenas as the Wizards’ point guard, or perhaps play alongside him in a potential high-scoring backcourt. The pick came shortly after a person familiar with the deal told The Associated Press that the Chicago Bulls had agreed to trade veteran guard Kirk Hinrich and the 17th pick in the draft to the Wizards. Hinrich is a solid veteran defensive guard who could help with Wall’s transition to the NBA. After his name was announced to begin the draft, Wall hugged family members and donned a blue Wizards cap before climbing onto the stage to shake commissioner David Stern’s hand. The Philadelphia 76ers took national player of the year Evan Turner from Ohio State at No. 2. The notoriously tough Philadelphia fans at Madison Square Garden liked the choice, loudly cheering and chanting “Evan Turner! Evan Turner!” Derrick Favors became the second freshman taken in the first three picks when the New Jersey Nets chose the Georgia Tech forward. Patrick Semansky/AP The Minnesota Timberwolves then Kentucky guard John Wall(11) raises his hand during the second grabbed Syracuse forward Wesley Johnson, whom the Nets also had half of an NCAA second-round college basketball game against Wake Forest in New Orleans, Saturday, March 20. Wall was considered. picked first in the NBA Draft by Washington on Thursday.

JOHANNESBURG — Robert Vittek and his Slovakian team were in last place in the group and had to get past defending champion Italy to reach the second round of the World Cup. So calling them long shots was overstating their chances of advancing. Two goals from Vittek stunned the Italians at Ellis Park and helped Slovakia to a 3-2 victory Thursday that turned the soccer world upside down. The Italians were eliminated, finishing last in Group F, and Slovakia — 17 years after splitting from Czechoslovakia — moved to the round of 16 for the first time as an independent country. “We came here as newcomers and outsiders,” Vittek said. “But we have already surprised once and we want to do it again. We really have moved the limits of Slovak football somewhere else. “We couldn’t have dreamed about this ... we showed everybody we are capable of achieving this.” What surprised the players was just how comfortable they were against Italy, a four-time World Cup winner. The only threats from the Azzurri came in the last 15 minutes, by which time Vittek had given the Slovaks a two-goal cushion. Most of the late Italian challenges were repelled by solid defending. Kamil Kopunek added a third for Slovakia after Antonio Di Natale pulled one back for Italy. The Slovaks clung on despite Fabio Quagliarella’s second goal for the holders. “Of course we didn’t expect such domination — maybe I shouldn’t say dom-

ination — but we had the game under our control,” said Vittek. “We played better and we played with our hearts. That decided the match.” Pessimism, though, had been predominant entering the last Group F match. Slovakia had one point after a draw against New Zealand and a loss to Paraguay. Coach Vladimir Weiss had to apologize for directing an expletive-laced outburst at his media critics. “Before the match we were under great pressure,” Weiss acknowledged. “It was not so easy to prepare; in my mind I had many questions about the starting 11.” And Weiss had a simple message for supporters back home: “Enjoy football — let’s celebrate. This is a present to all our fans.” There was no cheery embrace for the media, though. While tensions still simmer — the players largely snubbed reporters despite their elation at conquering Italy — the Slovakian Football Association hopes for unity as the team’s South Africa campaign continues. “I told the Slovak media that it’s time to make a clear line and start again together,” association president Frantisek Laurinec said. “I will push to Mr. Weiss and the players to normalize relations.” Now it’s time to savior the win over Italy, he said. “It’s an extraordinary moment for Slovakian football,” Laurinec said. “It’s something from heaven, it’s like a dream ... we are also ambitious.” Those ambitions extend to strengthening Slovakia’s domestic league — all 23 members of the World Cup squad play away from home.

kids.” Murphy said the enforcement of a non-steroid policy should also be strong in the Minor Leagues, because as the system currently stands, the risk-reward ratio for players hoping to crack a Big League lineup is nowhere close to where it needs to be. “The incentives (to make the Majors) is huge,” said Murphy. “We’ve got to make the consequences of getting caught as big as the incentives to take steroids. “The consequences should be the ending of your career.” But steroids weren’t the only thing Murphy spent time talking about: ——— Murphy eluded to a possible coaching position with the Atlanta Braves sometime in the future. “I’ve been to spring training the past couple of years,” said Murphy. “And I told the Braves if something comes up, I’m a lot more available. “But I’m not really interested in being a Major League manager, to be honest. But I’m interested in helping. It’s fun to work with young kids. “You never get (the game of baseball) out of your system. I don’t know if I’m a full-time guy, but I’m willing to help out when I can and stay involved.” ——— Why hasn’t Murphy been inducted into the MLB Hall of Fame despite 398 career homers, 1,266 RBIs, five Gold Gloves and a consecutive games played streak of 740 playing center field for Atlanta? The answer: three career postseason games. “I’m only getting 10 percent of the vote, and you need 75 percent,” said Murphy. “I’m a long ways away. “I think the postseason is a chance for players to sort of cement their legacy, and I just played in three games. I think that’s the main thing. I

Dale Murphy understand it, but I do have some people who are very supportive, so we’ll see... maybe one of these days.” ——— What does Murphy miss the most about being in the MLB spotlight? “I think like most occupations, you miss being with the guys you work with,” said Murphy. “Of course, you miss the competition, and you miss the good performances. You don’t miss the bad ones. “But mostly you miss being around the guys in the locker room and making fun of somebody’s hair cut or something. The goofy stuff you do, you know, everybody’s a comedian. “I think mostly that’s because everybody is so nervous, you’re just trying to relax. In that atmosphere, your adrenaline goes crazy being out in front of all those people. That’s something that’s hard to replace, and you never really get it out of your system.” ——— Murphy said he owns stock in Apple and he encouraged people to rush out and buy the new iPhone 4 released by the company on Thursday morning, although he personally won’t be making an upgrade from his old iPhone for awhile. “I invested in Apple, so get a new iPhone so the stock will go up,” joked Murphy. “I don’t have a new one yet, because I’m not eligible for an upgrade until January. I’m living on that retirement money, so I can’t just go out and get a new iPhone.”

Century-old shipwreck found intact

nation/world Gore sex allegations dismissed

PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Portland police say they investigated allegations that former Vice President Al Gore had â&#x20AC;&#x153;unwanted sexual contactâ&#x20AC;? with a massage therapist during an October 2006 visit, but they found insufficient evidence to support the womanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s claims. Multnomah County District Attorney Michael Schrunk said Wednesday an attorney representing the woman contacted police in late 2006. Schrunk said the woman refused to be interviewed by detectives and didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want the investigation to continue. But the woman contacted police in January 2009 and gave a statement, saying Gore tried to have sex with her during a massage appointment at the upscale downtown Hotel Lucia. Gore reportedly was registered at the hotel as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mr. Stone.â&#x20AC;?

Geologist survives attacks by grizzly

ANCHORAGE, Alaska (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The first time the bear charged, Robert Miller had just enough time to get out his gun, squeeze off a shot and play dead before the grizzly attacked. The first attack lasted 10 or 15 seconds and the bear wandered off, but not far enough. Miller was trying to stand up when the bear attacked, again. The 54-year-old geologist got two more shots off, then turned back onto his stomach and played dead again, as the bear chewed on.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Angry womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; detain store peeper

CHURCH HILL, Tenn. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Police say 10 â&#x20AC;&#x153;angry womenâ&#x20AC;? detained an accused changing room peeper at a thrift store in East Tennessee until officers arrived. Twenty-year-old Bradley J. Wallen of Rogersville has been charged with two misdemeanors, observation without consent and photographing in violation of privacy. Church Hill police chief Mark Johnson said that a small hole between the menâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and womenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s changing rooms at the Flashbacks and Reruns thrift store was allegedly discovered by a woman who dropped something on the floor. Johnson said â&#x20AC;&#x153;10 angry womenâ&#x20AC;? prevented Wallen from leaving by blocking a rear door.

Lohan ordered to answer questions

BEVERLY HILLS, Calif. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Lindsay Lohan will have to answer more questions about a 2007 car chase that landed her in jail, including inquiries about drug use at the time, a judge ruled Thursday. Lohanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s answers will be used in a civil lawsuit filed against the actress by a woman who claims she suffered emotional distress after the incident, which prompted a criminal case that still haunts the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mean Girlsâ&#x20AC;? star. Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Richard A. Stone ordered Lohan to sit for a two-hour deposition next month.

Attacks in Iraq kill at least 10

BAGHDAD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A spate of attacks targeting Iraqi security forces and their allies killed at least 10 people on Thursday, half in suicide bombings in the northern city of Mosul, officials said. The ability of insurgents to strike against Iraqi police and soldiers has raised worries about their competence as Iraq takes over its own security ahead of the planned U.S. withdrawal of combat troops by the end of August.

By DINESH RAMDE Associated Press Writer MILWAUKEE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A great wooden steamship that sank more than a century ago in a violent Lake Michigan storm has been found off the Milwaukeearea shoreline, and divers say the intact vessel appears to have been perfectly preserved by the cold fresh waters. Finding the 300-footlong L.R. Doty was important because it was the largest wooden ship that remained unaccounted for, said Brendon Baillod, the president of the Wisconsin Underwater Archaeology Association. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the biggest one Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been involved with,â&#x20AC;? said Baillod, who has taken part in about a dozen such finds. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really exhilarating.â&#x20AC;? The Doty was carrying a cargo of corn from South Chicago to Ontario, Canada in October 1898 when it sailed into a terrible storm, Baillod said. Along with snow and sleet, there were heavy winds that whipped up waves of up to 30 feet. The Doty should have been able to handle the weather. The ship was only five years old, and the 300foot wooden behemothâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hull was reinforced with

steel arches. But it was towing a small schooner, the Olive Jeanette, which began to founder in the storm after the tow line apparently snapped, Baillod said. The Doty probably sank when it came to the schoonerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s aid. All 17 of its crew members died, along with the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cats, Dewey and Watson. As a maritime historian Baillod spent more than 20 years researching the shipwreck. He knew that swaths of debris had washed up afterward in Kenosha, about 40 miles south of Milwaukee. But he

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obama declared Thursday that he and Russian President Dmitry Medvedev have â&#x20AC;&#x153;succeeded in resettingâ&#x20AC;? the relationship between the former Cold War adversaries that had dipped to a dangerous low in recent years. Obama directly acknowledged differences in some areas, such as Moscowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tensions with neighboring Georgia, but said â&#x20AC;&#x153;we addressed those differences candidly.â&#x20AC;? And he announced that the U.S. and Russia had agreed to expand cooperation on intelligence and the counterterror fight and worked on strengthening economic ties between the

nations. Obama gave Russia perhaps the biggest gift it could have wanted from the meetings: an unqualified, hearty plug for Moscowâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ascension to the World Trade Organization. Russia has long wanted membership but U.S. support in the past has come with conditions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Russia belongs in the WTO,â&#x20AC;? Obama said as the two leaders stood side-by-side in the East Room after several hours of meetings â&#x20AC;&#x201D; including an impromptu trip to a nearby burger joint for lunch. The leaders faced questions about the U.S.led Afghanistan war, and

Divers waited until last week to descend, when the weather was just right. As soon as they got to the lake floor they knew they had found the Doty. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It felt so good to solve this,â&#x20AC;? said Jitka Hanakova, 33, a diver and captain of the charter boat that led the exploration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This ship has been missing for so many years and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the biggest out there.â&#x20AC;? Divers found the ship upright and intact, settled into the clay at the lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bottom. Even the shipâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cargo of corn was still in its hold.

Obama promised that the U.S. will â&#x20AC;&#x153;not miss a beatâ&#x20AC;? because of the change in military command that he ordered on Wednesday. Obama accepted Gen. Stanley McChrystalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s resignation and replaced him with his direct boss, Gen. David Petraeus. Petraeus â&#x20AC;&#x153;understands the strategy because he helped shape it,â&#x20AC;? Obama said. Medvedev seemed reluctant to wade into the topic, recalling the ultimately disastrous Soviet

invasion of Afghanistan in 1979. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I try not to give pieces of advice that cannot be fulfilled,â&#x20AC;? Medvedev said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a very hard topic, a very difficult one.â&#x20AC;? Yet he said that Russia supports the U.S. effort if it can result in Afghanistan emerging from extreme poverty and dysfunction to have â&#x20AC;&#x153;an effective state and a modern economy.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is the path to guarantee that the gravest scenarios of the last time will not repeat,â&#x20AC;? he said.

found news accounts that it had last been seen closer to Milwaukee, near Oak Creek. Meanwhile, a Milwaukee fisherman in 1991 reported snagging his nets on an obstruction about 300 feet under water. The observation was largely forgotten for decades until diving technology improved enough to enable exploration at that depth. A number of explorers did some preliminary scouting on the lakeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surface in recent months, using deepsea technology to find a massive submerged object.

Only last month she said she was more likely to become a football star than replace her boss. But in a brutally efficient move driven by bad opinion polls and the approach of a general election, the Labor party dumped Prime Minister Kevin Rudd for his 48-year-old deputy. On Thursday Gillard was sworn in.

The ‘Energizer general’ soon back running a war ANNE FLAHERTY Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON — Army Gen. David Petraeus has already turned around a struggling U.S. war once. President Barack Obama is betting he can do it again. The professorial four-star general with an outsized reputation hasn’t been chosen as Afghanistan war commander to bring a bold new strategy to the effort. Instead, he is seen as the officer best able to make the current strategy work — and to end the squabbling between diplomats and military leaders that broke into the open and consumed Gen. Stanley McChrystal’s career. If McChrystal’s staff resembled a locker roomstyle boy’s club, Petraeus, a Princeton Ph.D., is known for running his team more like a graduate seminar. But he can set a ferocious pace. “He is the Energizer general,” says retired U.S. Army Col. Peter Mansoor, who was Petraeus’ executive officer in Iraq in 2007 and 2008. “But what he’ll need is someone on his staff to make him pace himself. That was my job.” Mansoor said: “His natural instinct is to run himself into the ground.” Petraeus, 57, rises early for long runs, outgunning officers half his age, and responds to e-mails in the middle of the night. The intensity has sometimes shown. Petraeus briefly collapsed during Senate testimony last week, apparently from dehydration. He is seen as ablest to pick up the counterinsurgency battle plan exactly where McChrystal is leaving off. Petraeus was McChrystal’s boss as head of U.S. Central Command in Tampa, Fla., where he was already keeping tabs on the campaign, with frequent visits to Afghanistan, neighboring Pakistan and Washington. “He’s already completely up to date on the intelligence, knows the political and military actors, and understands the region,” says John Nagl, president of the Center for the New American Security. “He’ll have the support of the troops,” says Mansoor. “He can just roll up his sleeves and get right to work.” Over the past two years at Central Command, Petraeus has fostered what’s been described as a good working relationship with Afghan President Hamid Karzai. He knows Afghanistan’s U.S. ambassador, former Gen. Karl Eikenberry, from their years together in the army. Also important, Petraeus has established a solid relationship with the White House as one who took part in strategy reviews of Afghanistan, Iraq and Iran policies, says Michael O’Hanlon of the Brookings Institution. “He and the president know each other pretty well right now,” he said, a personal relationship that was notably lacking between Obama and McChrystal. The Afghanistan job is technically a demotion from Petraeus’ current post, where he oversees U.S. military involvement across the Middle East, including Iraq and Iran, as well as Afghanistan and Pakistan and several Central Asian nations. Yet no one who has worked with him thinks that’s how he’ll see it. “He’s getting another opportunity to step into a war at a critical inflection point,” said Nagl, a retired Army officer who worked for Petraeus in drafting the Army’s counterinsurgency manual. “So this is by no means a step down.” Response to his nomination on Capitol Hill has been widely positive, and he is expected to be confirmed quickly by the

said. Petraeus is expected to continue McChrystal’s strategy in Afghanistan in large part because it is based on Petreaus’ own ideas about beating an insurgency.

Flynn keeps slim lead to win contest

Editor’s Note: This is the last in a three-part series that follows the efforts of participants in a “Biggest Loser” type weight loss contest. By GAIL CRUTCHFIELD Community Editor After 16 weeks and the shedding of almost 500 pounds, a winner was declared in the first “Biggest Loser” type weight loss contest held by a local business. Kevin Flynn of Sevier County Utility District was declared the Biggest Loser, but only by a slim margin; fellow competitor and co-worker Nikki Hurst finished second. Flynn lost about 37 pounds, or 15.82 percent of his starting weight, while Hurst pared 27 pounds from her frame, or 15.55 percent. Flynn was the one to beat from early in the competition and was in the lead at the halfway point. Hurst, however, was close on his heels by the end of the competition after she recovered from a broken foot. Both Flynn and Hurst joined the competition to improve their health. “I wanted to lose some weight and be healthy for the summer,” Hurst said. Her initial goal was to lose 15 pounds. “Then I thought, well maybe I’ll lose a little bit more, and then it got to be competitive,” she said. A member of her high school’s color guard and cheerleading squads, Hurst didn’t play team sports, but said she’s always had something of a competitive streak. “Anything I’d do for fun with my friends, I always wanted to win,” she said. Her competitive spirit really kicked in after she recovered from an injury. “The first six to eight weeks (of the competition) I had a broken foot,” she said. So she watched what she ate at first and then began walking after the boot came off. She would walk 30 minutes with co-worker Sandy Lane during their lunch break and another 30 minutes on a treadmill. Flynn’s exercise of choice was running every morning, picking up an exercise schedule he left behind from his days as a high school quarterback. That’s not to say they didn’t indulge in junk food every now and then, something their co-workers noticed. “They really gave us a hard time,” Hurst said of one indulgence during Sevierville’s Bloomin’ BBQ & Bluegrass Festival, when she and Flynn worked the SCUD booth. “They had deep fried Oreos,” Hurst said of one of the vendors. Flynn purchased a basket for them to share, each eating two. “But I wouldn’t eat mine until he ate his,” Hurst said, her competitive spirit still alive and well. “He still beat me, though.” “Another week and you would have had me,” Flynn told her. Hurst lost 5.4 pounds the last week of the competition. Flynn lost some weight too. “If I hadn’t lost (weight) you would

She even took the extra step of not eating lunch before the 3 p.m. weigh-in. But Flynn stilled edged her out by 4.6 ounces. Flynn took that weigh-in day off to take his son to Morristown for baseball tryouts at Walters State. “I had to rush back to get to the weigh-in,” Flynn said. “Too bad he wasn’t stuck in traffic,” Hurst joked. Since the contest concluded, both Flynn and Hurst said they are still exercising and watching what they eat,

although they may indulge a bit more than before. They’re not going to compete in the next round of competitions, which Luke Michaluk of Healthy Balance has started up after the success of the first. There is no charge to enter the competition, nor is there a commitment to purchase Healthy Balance meals. For more information on the competition, contact Michaluk at 286-5394. Other big “losers” in the contest include Amber Adams at TVA Credit Union, who lost 10.77 percent of her body weight; Tammy McGaha at The Mountain Press, 11.4 percent; and Penny Donnell at Dr. Steven Morton’s office, 8.04 percent. In all, Michaluk said 493.6 pounds were lost among all the participants. n

Several vital elements lead to individual and group success Continuing to recognize June as Effective Communication Month, I share the story about a business woman named Donsa who received a promotion and her boss phoned the bakery to order a cake to celebrate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two questions,â&#x20AC;? said the baker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Is Donsa a man or a woman? And what do you want the cake to say?â&#x20AC;? The boss replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The cake should simply read, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Congratulations.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; After a pause, the boss added, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh, and Donsaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a woman.â&#x20AC;? The next day, the office celebrated the promotion with a cake inscribed â&#x20AC;&#x153;Congratulations â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Donsaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a woman.â&#x20AC;? Mentioning celebration cakes causes me to think about cake candles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which leads me to think about a short verse by Helen Steiner Rice (1900-1981). Known as Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inspirational poet laureate, she wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;You canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t light a candle to show others the way, without feeling the warmth of that bright, little ray.â&#x20AC;? And one of the best means of lighting a candle in business, sports, family or any type of group is to do what you can to help yourself and others work together to grow individually and to accomplish the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission. In a business group, for example, whether you are a frontline worker, supervisor, manager or president, it is important to know that individual growth and group accomplishment can be attained when team members combine efforts to create an atmosphere that promotes several vital elements. One of the elements is that everyone in the organization has a great understanding of what his or her duties are and exactly what is expected of him or her. A closely-related element to this is to make sure members have the talent, ability, tools and training needed in order to accomplish the expectations. If the right people have been recruited into the group and if the tools and training are provided, then people will continually find an opportunity to excel in what they are capable of doing. When this happens, you will find that members are commended by leaders and co-workers for their achievements and their continued progress, which in turn can help every individual in the organization and, therefore, help the organization. Such an atmosphere increases how much



people in the organization encourage one another. As encouragement among group members grows, members show more personal concern for one another. Group members will also see an increase in how others want to support them and help them improve in their tasks. As with sports teams, for example, I have found that as these described elements multiply, more people with whom you work pay more attention to doing the best jobs they can possibly do. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like a football player once told me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I find that the harder I go the harder the guys around me go.â&#x20AC;? As all these elements come together, team members continue to buy into the organization more. Members feel the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission has elevated meaning and value, and their excitement to be a part of the organization and working toward the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission increases. Members increasingly discuss their development and the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s development with one another. They look at how people have had a chance over the past weeks and months to gain new skills and improve overall performance. I have just described about a dozen elements that lead a sports team to win a championship â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and lead a business organization or any group to achieve excellence.

Gradys recall visit on submarine


Capt. McDonald and Alice Grady aboard the Naval sub.


The USS L. Mendel Rivers Nuclear Submarine in which Don and Alice Grady took a 14-hour voyage in 1996.

We both “qualified” as an honorary submariner, and some of the crew joked that they wished it were that easy for them to earn their Dolphins.

Some highlights of the trip were seeing our son navigate the sub and sitting at the captain’s table in the Officers’ Mess. We were impressed and pleased that Capt. McDonald gave thanks to God before the meal. Another highlight for Don was actually being allowed to take the boat 600 feet under the ocean and bring it back to 300

feet. In the torpedo room, Don fired a “water slug”: 400 pounds of water forced through the torpedo tube which simulates the firing of an actual torpedo. We were told that the Navy Seals sleep in the torpedo room. One of the goals of this “family cruise” was to gain knowledge of the purpose and role of today’s submarine force. As a result, we got a small idea of what these men experience when they are gone for up to six months at sea, what very small sleeping quarters they have, their great


This was an incredible and unforgettable experience, and we thank God for these highly skilled and dedicated men who are defending our nation on and under the sea.

By DON and ALICE GRADY In light of Editor Stan Voit’s column on June 13, about Stan Mize and the Smoky Mountain Submarine Vets, we thought readers of The Mountain Press might be interested in a submarine voyage taken by us about 14 years ago. Our son, Donald E. Grady Jr., is a 1988 graduate of the U.S. Naval Academy and, after graduation, he prepared for submarine service. He served on the USS Portsmouth (SSN 707) and the USS L. Mendel Rivers (SSN 686) until his retirement from active duty in 1999. He then went into the Naval Reserves. He was called up in September 2006, and sent in early 2007 to the American Embassy in Yemen under the auspices of the U.S. State Department. Our visit with him in Sana’a, Yemen, was the subject of an article in The Mountain Press on Jan. 29. In August 1996, we had the fascinating experience of taking a 14-hour trip on the USS L. Mendel Rivers Nuclear Submarine. We arrived at the dock in Norfolk, Va., a little before 5 a.m. when our son reported for duty. At 6 a.m., family members and friends of the crew boarded the sub, and in a few minutes we were on our way into the Atlantic Ocean. We had to travel for six hours on the surface before the water was deep enough to submerge. In talking with our son, we mentioned that probably very few civilians ever get under way on a sub, and he said that very few Navy people get to ride on one. Each of the civilians that day was given a check-off list to qualify in various areas of submarine opera-

Be advocate for teenagers ridiculed for their size



Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: My widowed uncle has two sons, ages 11 and 13. My uncle is as skinny as a rail, but the boys are quite fat. They eat healthy food — my uncle is a great cook — but their portions are large, and their father makes no effort to control how much goes into their mouths. When we were with the extended family over the holidays, there were nonstop comments about the boys’ weight, none of which was constructive and all of which included ridicule. Yet, these same relatives filled the boys’ Christmas stockings with chocolate and candy and fed them a huge meal with all the fat-laden trimmings, plus desserts. The boys were encouraged to serve themselves as much as they wanted. Later, when they grabbed a snack, they were asked, “You’re eating again?” Not once did anyone say “no candy before lunch,” yet I heard plenty of comments like “you’re well-marbled.” This really bothered me, as I’m sure it affects the boys’ selfesteem. It happened again when we were together for Mother’s Day. I don’t feel it is my place to comment on how the boys are raised, but I can’t handle another family event like this. I feel terrible for those kids. I love my family, Annie, but they are clueless and unsympathetic. — Don’t Make Fun of Fat Children Dear Don’t: It’s possible some of the weight will drop off as the boys go through puberty and gain some height, as well as an interest in looking good. But in the meantime, please be their advocate. Talk to the family members who are the worst behaved.

Say you are certain they don’t intend to harm these children by mocking them, but their comments are hurtful and undoubtedly contribute to the boys’ overeating. Ask those responsible for the food to present more healthful alternatives — for everyone’s sake. Offer to bring dessert to the next gathering. Stand up for those kids as often as you can. Dear Annie: I am a 21-year-old female and am depressed. I recently started seeing a therapist and have come to the realization that the majority of this depression is due to the emotionally abusive relationship I have with my parents. The therapist suggested I move out of their home, but I’m scared I won’t be able to support myself. Is it possible to stay in the house for another eight months to complete school and ensure that my tuition is paid? — Stuck in Watertown, N.Y. Dear Stuck: Your therapist gave you good advice, but it is a suggestion, not an order. If you need to stay with Mom and Dad in order to finish your education, it’s OK, although it will not be easy. Ask your therapist to help you work on ways to cope while focusing on your future. Find a job, start saving your money, and scout around for roommates and rentals.

For Better Or Worse

Tina’s Groove

Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Help,” whose husband doesn’t close any cabinet doors. My mother left her cabinet door open and stood up quickly, hitting her head smack into the corner. Nothing happened right away, but a month later, she bent over to pick up a book and felt nauseated and got a severe headache. Thankfully, my father was home and took her to the hospital. The neurosurgeon said this blunt trauma to her head caused a cerebral hemorrhage that left her left side temporarily paralyzed. If she had been alone, it could have been fatal. Her rehab took more than a year. Thankfully, Mom has made a complete recovery, but should she bump her head in the same spot, she is at risk of dying. I hope this helps someone else understand the seriousness of not closing cabinet doors. — Laurie B. Dear Laurie: And for those who believe it can’t happen to them, please consider the other people who live in your home, not to mention guests who know lawyers.
