PIGEON FORGE — Just a few weeks ago Commissioner Randal Robinson demanded city attorney Jim Gass give an opinion on a pair of contracts. Now, Gass has issued his opinions, but Robinson says they are “absolutely wrong.” Robinson wants to save the city money on unbid contracts, which he says total more than $15 million annually. His fellow officials say Robinson is seeing something wrong in legal actions and undermining the work of people paid to handle these matters. On the contracts, Robinson contends they’re bad business and mostly illegal. In fact, the state does permit them. While cities are required to bid most things, exceptions include “professional services” in which the lowest price may not produce the best work. The latest fight over the matter came in June dur-

If Scott Hughes is unsuccessful in his bid to be elected to the Tennessee House, it won’t be for lack of effort. The Seymour resident says he’s seen at least 5,000 people, knocked on hundreds and hundreds of doors and canvassed neighborhoods from west Sevier County to Maryville. “We’ve had good success raising money,” Hughes said, “but our best success has been in our volunteer and grassroots effort. While other candidates may spend money on consultant fees and paid staffers, Hughes says he has more than 100 volunteers helping him. Hughes is a Republican candidate for the District 8 House seat being vacated by Maryville’s Joe McCord. His GOP opponents are Joe McCully, Geoff King and Art Swann. All four live in Blount County; only

about 25 percent of the district is in Sevier County, mostly the Seymour a n d Gatlinburg Hughes areas. Hughes lives in the Blount County portion of what is considered the Seymour community. In his travels and campaigning, Hughes says voters are concerned about two things: wanting a House member who truly represents their interests and who favors a limited role for government. Lately he’s heard a lot of talk about immigration and a need for tougher laws to regulate it. He likes Arizona’s new immigration law. Hughes says his background in pro-life and family values issues disSee hughes, Page A4

Second Harvest key local food source By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer Although Second Harvest Food Bank has been helping Sevier County Food Ministries feed its citizens for 15 years, the Knoxvillebased nonprofit wants to connect even more with the community. “The issue has always been, ‘How do we reach our surrounding counties?’” said spokeswoman Donna Hottinger. “We serve 18 counties in East Tennessee, but because of our location, nobody really knows about us.” Second Harvest distributes food to roughly 155,000 people each month through a network of partners throughout East Tennessee, including Sevier County Food Ministries, First Baptist Church of Sevierville, the Salvation Army and others. It is part of a national network of food banks called Feeding America, which covers every county in the United States.

much they do,” said Kelly Fletcher, who has served on the organization’s board for five years. “A new hunger study has just been completed, and the need is all around.” Hottinger reported that 80 percent of the families Second Harvest serves are working families. In Sevier County, 526,099 meals were distributed last year. Fourteen of the county’s schools participate in Second Harvest’s Food for Kids program, which provides backpacks filled with nutritious food that can be easily prepared by a child. Second Harvest’s other programs include the Abundant Life Kitchen, Kids’ Cafe, Knoxville Harvest, Mobile Pantry/ Curt Habraken/The Mountain Press/File Rural Routes, Hunger The bagging room at the Sevier County Food Ministries contains 101 and food drives.

Pittman Center earns state award Submitted report Pittman Center is not afraid to tackle the big issues to be a wellrun, top-notch community. Town officials have made significant progress with municipal projects that showcase the community’s natural resources and mountain heritage, while enhancing the safety and welfare of its citizens through grant-funded improvements to the police department. Pittman Center was recognized with a 2010 Tennessee Municipal League Achievement Award for Excellence in Governance which was presented during the league’s 71st annual conference at the Gatlinburg Convention

Center. Just minutes from downtown Gatlinburg and a designated “pristine waterway� for the middle prong of the Little Pigeon River, outdoor recreation is a big part of life in Pittman Center. A web site and Facebook page make information accessible. For history buffs, the new heritage museum inside Pittman Center Elementary includes artifacts about the community. As members of the state’s Sunnyside Trail Project, Pittman Center’s sites along the trail include Emerts Cove Covered Bridge, the Greenbrier entrance to Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Noisy Falls, the Bent

Creek Golf Course and Town Hall, which is on the register of historic places. With the assistance of UT Forestry Department interns, the town is currently developing 50 acres into the Spring Branch Walking Trail, and a state grant will bring a $500,000 bridge to Golf Creek. “The town has developed a board and staff team that work together seamlessly,� said Pat Hardy, municipal management consultant with the University of Tennessee Municipal Technical Advisory Service. “They employ a part-time city manager who is the absolute epitome of what a professional manager is all about. The town

is also fortunate to have a wonderful, upbeat, smart, and caring mayor.� Hardy, who works with municipalities in the Upper East Tennessee region, nominated Pittman Center for the award. With public safety a strong focus of town leaders, quarterly Safety Department meetings are held and the community has been receiving grants for the past five years. The town’s police department developed a Standard Operating Procedure manual and a $5,000 grant has helped update police vehicles with mobile and portable radios. Each year the Tennessee Municipal League honors cities.

Senate panel extends life of space shuttle


ing budget discussions. Robinson questioned Gass on two contracts, one with a company that helps keep the city’s wastewater system running and the other with a service that answers potential visitors’ calls after hours. Robinson confronted Gass in the last City Commission meeting, demanding the attorney’s opinion several times. Gass repeatedly said he believes the deals are legal. “If you want me to give my opinion in written form, I’ll do that, Commissioner,� Gass said. And he did, handing it out during their meeting Monday. He said both contracts are legal and appropriately not bid out. Even with that, Robinson says he believes Gass is wrong. He’s vowed to continue pushing the matter. “Right now I’m just taking it one day at a time,� he said when contacted the next day. “Jim Gass isn’t the judge. His is just the opinion of one attorney. I believe he’s absolutely wrong on this.� Robinson’s doubting of city staffers and Gass has irked his fellow officials.

conservative side than some other candidates.� Hughes says he is strongly against a state income tax and would deal with a billion dollar budget shortfall by attacking spending. “Any true conservative looks first at the spending side,� he said. “We need to take a solid look at what we are spending and look at ways to be able to cut those things that are nonessential to running the state.� Hughes promised to resist any effort to weaken or eliminate the Premier Resort status of Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, that enables both cities to keep more of their state taxes. Hughes doesn’t live in Sevier County, but he has connections. Mike Wyatt, his campaign treasurer, lives in the Waldens Creek area.

They say heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s trying to create problems where there are none and making it hard for employees to do their jobs. Robinson has often bolstered his arguments by saying he contacted officials in Nashville to pose his questions to them. He insisted the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s comptroller agrees with him the city should eliminate its insurance broker and get bids for property coverage on its own. He insisted such a move could save the city $20,000. Mayor Keith Whaley fired back. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have a problem with any commissioner going outside management (and) contacting the comptroller,â&#x20AC;? Whaley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He can answer to whatever you tell him.â&#x20AC;? Whaley suggested Robinson is â&#x20AC;&#x153;overstepping his boundsâ&#x20AC;? in his calls to Nashville, worrying Robinson may be painting an incomplete or incorrect picture for state officials. And the mayor isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only one expressing frustration with Robinson; every commissioner criticized Robinson durng the meeting. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got the same option to call,â&#x20AC;? Robinson said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a shame they donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t do this work. When I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t agree, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll work it until Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m satisfied. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll find the right opinion.â&#x20AC;?

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; President Barack Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan to redirect U.S. astronauts to near-Earth asteroids and eventually to Mars received a boost Thursday from a Senate panel that also agreed to extend the life of the space shuttle program for a year. The Senate Commerce Committee unanimously approved a three-year spending plan for NASA that represented a compromise between Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s efforts to change course from the Bush administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s goal of returning astronauts to the moon and congressional concerns that the presidentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s blueprint would undermine NASAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role in space exploration and result in job losses. The panel agreed that the space agency should move more quickly to develop and operate a heavylift rocket. Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s plan relies on commercial space development in the near future and puts off an immediate decision on a future heavy-lift rocket program that would carry astronauts to asteroids and beyond.

Tenn. counties face tough heat

MEMPHIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The National Weather Service has increased the urgency of its hot weather statement for Tennessee counties along the Mississippi River. The NWS office in Memphis issued an excessive heat warning, cautioning that temperatures in the upper 90s coupled with high humidity will produce heat indexes of 110 degrees. Forecasters point out that heat causes the most weather-related deaths and urged caution for people working outside or without air conditioning. A heat advisory covered the remainder of West Tennessee and extended through the Nashville area.

Swiss wanted to see Polanski file

LOS ANGELES (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Swiss government asked the U.S. Justice Department to release sealed transcripts in the Roman Polanski case just days before a Los Angeles judge was told that the Swiss did not request that information, according to a letter from Swiss officials that points to apparent miscommunication in the case. The officials said that the denial of access to the information was the key factor in the refusal to extradite the filmmaker to the United States, according to the letter to the U.S. Embassy in Bern, Switzerland. A district attorneyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spokeswoman said their office was never notified of the Swiss request.

Vatican revises sex abuse rules

VATICAN CITY (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Vatican issued a revised set of in-house rules Thursday to respond to clerical sex abuse, targeting priests who molest the mentally disabled as well as children and priests who use child pornography, but making few substantive changes to existing practice. The new rules make no mention of the need for bishops to report clerical sex abuse to police, provide no canonical sanctions for bishops who cover up for abusers and do not include any â&#x20AC;&#x153;one-strike and youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re outâ&#x20AC;? policy for pedophile priests as demanded by some victims.

Iraq takes over U.S. prison camp

BAGHDAD (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Iraq assumed control of the last U.S.-run prison camp in the country on Thursday, a milestone that casts a spotlight on the Iraqi governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s troubled record of caring for inmates amid allegations of torture and overcrowding at Iraqi-run facilities. The change in command at Camp Cropper marks the end of a troubling chapter in the U.S. presence in the country, which was marred in the early years by soldiers abusing inmates. It also raised questions about how well prepared the Iraqis are to handle the detainees.

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Apple Inc. will hold a press conference on Friday to discuss the latest iPhone model amid complaints about its antenna and Consumer Reports magazineâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refusal to endorse it until the problems get fixed.

People began lining up for wristbands outside early Thursday morning. By 9 a.m., supervising producer Patrick Lynn estimated there were upward of 10,000 people waiting in the nearly 90-degree heat.

Hank Cochran dead at 74 NASHVILLE (AP) — Hank Cochran, a consummate songwriter who composed a string of country hits including “Make the World Go Away” for Eddy Arnold, has died. He was 74. Martha E. Moore, his publicist, said Cochran died Thursday morning at his home in Hendersonville north of Nashville. He had been in declining health in recent years, and suffered an aortic aneurysm in March. He was diagnosed with pancreatic cancer two years ago. He co-wrote the following No. 1 hits: Patsy Cline’s “I Fall to Pieces”; George Strait’s “Ocean



Front Property”; and “Set ’em Up Joe” by Vern Gosdin. He also wrote the No. 1 hits: “Don’t You Ever Get Tired of Hurting Me” by Ronnie Milsap; “He’s Got You” by Cline and Loretta Lynn; “I Want to Go With You” by Arnold; and “That’s All That Matters to Me” by Mickey Gilley. This pleading sentiment was expressed in 1965 in “Make the World Go Away”: “Make the world go away. “And get it off my shoulders. “Say the things you used to say “And make the world go away.”


More from 278th arriving in state

More units from the Tennessee National Guard’s 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment are returning home this week. About 250 soldiers from Rockwood, Huntingdon and Waynesboro were due to arrive Thursday and today. More than 1,000 Guardsmen from the 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment have returned from Iraq since mid-June.

Moore said Cochran’s close friends Billy Ray Cyrus, Jamey Johnson and Buddy Cannon visited him Wednesday night and they sang songs together. Survivors include his wife, three sons and a daughter. A private memorial service will be held later. His ex-wife is Grand Ole Opry singer Jeannie Seely. Cochran was born in Isola, Miss., and worked the New Mexico oilfields as a young man. He was a member of the Nashville Songwriters Association International Hall of Fame and the Mississippi Musicians Hall of Fame.

Democrat not afraid of audience

Rep. Brad Sherman, a Democrat from the 27th District of California in the San Fernando Valley of Los Angeles, is a congressman who is obviously not afraid of his constituents. Many are these days, but Sherman takes out advertisements in local newspapers urging people to come and reason with (or yell at) him at “Town Hall” meetings. Several hundred, maybe a thousand, did just that last Sunday afternoon in the auditorium of Reseda High School. He is good at this. He has done 140 of them. There are cookies and punch outside the hall. He introduces his mother, who baked some of the cookies, he leads the Pledge of Allegiance — some of the Tea Party types lining the wall shout out “UNDER GOD” at the appropriate moment — and a young woman sings “The StarSpangled Banner.” Then he tells parents that he can appoint young people to West Point, Annapolis, the Air Force Academy — and the Merchant Marine Academy. He presents an award to a local high school artist whose photos he has arranged to be hung in the Capitol. He turns to American Legion members and says: “We are the land of the free because we are the home of the brave.” Then the yelling starts. Sherman, a lawyer and accountant by training, is unflappable, until the shouters begin to say he should be arrested for supporting Israel in the matter of foreign ships trying to break the blockade of Gaza to deliver humanitarian assistance. A man of many years with a long gray ponytail — there are an amazing number of gray ponytails out here — jiggles a sign that says: “Brad Sherman Helps Israelis Kill Americans!” Sherman says Israel is acting within the law because the Hamas government of Gaza is, legally, a terrorist organization. “There is no other country in the world,” he says passionately, “that faces daily threats from people wanting to kill all its citizens. ... If I went to Gaza they would probably kill me.” He repeatedly refers to Palestinians as law-breakers, until a woman yells, “Did you feel that way about civil rights demonstrators sitting at lunch counters?” “That was different,” said Sherman. “They were protected by federal law.” A bit of a fib there. He finally dealt with the shouting problem by turning off one of the two microphones for questioners, saying Los Angeles police were coming. Then he turned to the other aisle where the questions were generally on domestic issues. My personal applause meter on the congressman’s answers: “You can now sign up for health insurance without regard to pre-existing conditions.” A hundred percent cheers. “I want to extend unemployment benefits.” Ninety percent cheers. “I voted against the TARP bill.” Another 90 percent. “I voted for the stimulus bill.” Boos and cheers. Fifty-fifty. The audience began to shout again to both boos and cheers. “Stop the wars!” someone said. Ninety percent cheers. “You took an oath to enforce the laws. So enforce the laws on illegal immigrants,” said someone else. That got almost 100 percent applause. But when Sherman said he was against “the Arizona approach,” the crowd was about 50-50. (Although the Hispanic population of the 27th District is above 30 percent, my personal racial profiling indicated there were no Hispanics in the crowd.) Someone asked if Sherman would debate his opponent. He said he had no opponent. The guy sitting in front of me, in a business suit and with a tightly tied pigtail to the small of his back, stood up and said that was a lie. “I’m Mark Reed, and I’m your Republican opponent,” he said. “I want four debates.” “Not until you file the proper financial papers,” said Sherman. “Until then I have no opponent.” Reed, who says he is part Comanche, said he was not required to file until July 15. People looked dazed. Someone shouted “Chicken!” “I’m no chicken,” said the congressman. “Anyone who faces this audience is no chicken.” — Richard Reeves, a presidential scholar and expert on six presidents, is the author of several books, including profiles of Richard Nixon and John Kennedy.

Baptist leadership Congratulations to Ron Herrod on his election to key Southern Baptist post Sevier County is making its mark among Southern Baptists. Earlier this summer the Rev. Randy Davis, pastor of First Baptist Sevierville, was elected executive director of the Tennessee Baptist Convention, putting him as the point man for 3,200 Tennessee congregations. Now we also can celebrate the election of Sevierville’s Dr. Ron Herrod as first vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention, with its 16 million members and 42,000 U.S. churches. Herrod is believed to be the first Sevier County resident ever elected to such a high position in the Southern Baptist Convention. While Davis was elected unanimously, Herrod had to best a challenger during the convention gathering in Orlando. He won by 500

votes out of nearly 2,800 votes cast. Herrod points to his election as a boost to evangelism. He started and heads up Ron Herrod Evangelism Ministries Association, which includes national television, crusades and mission projects in more than 30 countries throughout the world, as well as an international tape ministry. Herrod is a strong believer in the power and influence full-time evangelists can have on local Baptist churches. They can be influential in special events such as revivals and vacation Bible schools, but also in helping churches understand the role Baptists can play in reaching nonbelievers and the unchurched. It’s rare for an evangelist, as opposed to a pulpit pastor, to be elected to such a high ranking post within

the Southern Baptist Convention, and Herrod believes it signals a new way of thinking within the faith for the importance evangelism can and should play. Herrod praised Davis and First Baptist Sevierville for embracing fulltime evangelism in its ministry and programs. He shares more in common with Davis. Both are from the Mobile, Ala. area, both earned degrees from William Carey College in Hattiesburg, Miss., and both love University of Alabama athletics. They also share a passion and abiding belief in Southern Baptist thinking and theology. Congratulations to Ron Herrod on his election as first vice president of the Southern Baptist Convention. Having him as our neighbor makes it even sweeter.

Public forum Care from everyone praised by family of stroke victim

Editor: I am writing to thank several people and entities that took care of my father over the July 4 weekend. These include Chad McClure and EMS squad in Gatlinburg; Midtown Lodge office staff in Gatlinburg; University of Tennessee Medical Center at Knoxville; Dr. Anthony Cabrera and Dr. William Paulsen at UT; The Hilton, downtown Knoxville; Hilton Garden Inn, Knoxville; and an unnamed priest in the Baxter Avenue area of Knoxville. Our family has always vacationed in Gatlinburg. The last few years we have visited over July 4. This year we arrived at the Midtown Lodge on July 1, and the morning of July 2 we woke up to my father having a stroke. I called 911 and Chad McClure and another fellow arrived in 7-8 minutes. Dad was transferred to UT where he

received prompt and excellent care from Drs. Cabrera and Paulsen. Every nurse and staff member we encountered was outstanding. We had to check out of the Midtown Lodge, fearing holiday traffic. The Midtown Lodge folks were so kind to us. When I called to tell them what had happened, a lady at the front desk said, “Tell him we are praying for him.” That was awesome. When I went over to check out, the couple at the front desk were also kind and sympathetic and wished us the best. Between leaving the Midtown and finding the Hilton Garden Inn, I got lost three times. The gentlemen and valet working the front at Hilton downtown gave us directions. A priest on the parking lot of a Baxter Avenue area church also gave us directions and said he would pray for my dad. The folks at the front desk of the Hilton Garden Inn were also kind and extremely helpful to me and my family. We believe that God worked it out so that

what happened occurred in a wonderful place with kind people and excellent care. My dad is truly a miracle. At age 90, his stroke symptoms have completely resolved except for weakness in his legs. I believe it’s because of the excellent care he received and because so many people in Ohio, Kentucky, West Virginia and Tennessee were praying for him. When the ordeal began, I was afraid it would turn out badly and we would always have a sad feeling thinking about Gatlinburg and the Smokies. On the contrary, I have good memories when I think of all the fun we have had in the past, and I have only positive feelings when I think of all the friendly, caring and professional people we met and of whom God placed in our path. To all the persons mentioned herein, my family and I are truly grateful. Thank you all so much, and God bless. Anna E. Davis West Portsmouth, Ohio

Young Forge golfers have work ahead County champ returns, but squad has no seniors players

“My expectations are not low, but I understand what I’ve got. I really think that I’ve got a good team, and it’ll just take a while to build them.”

By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — In high school sports, sometimes being a “young” team is a bad thing. It often means a lack of varsity inexperience and more often than not equates to a losing season. The Pigeon Forge Tigers golf team is a young squad, and while there are some drawbacks tied to that youth, there are also some distinct advantages for coach Chad Owenby’s crew. For one, the girls team made up of sophomore Sunni McAlister and freshmen Mikayla Trombley and Hali Combs will be able to participate in team matches. Last season, due to an injury to McAlister, the Lady Tigers were left with one golfer, which isn’t enough for TSSAA team play. Now the team has three girls — enough to field a team plus one. “This is probably the first time (in a few years) that I’ve had three girls that could fill the two scores (required),” Owenby said Thursday at the Gatlinburg Country Club. “And I feel like any of the three may be the number one player that day. Going in Sunni’s

PF coach Chad Owenby

definitely the number one, she hits it further and she’s playing well, but the other two have a good chance to score on days. Right now I feel like I have a team.” The way TSSAA scores girls golf matches allows three players to play while only counting the top two scores. “I’d rather have three in the 40s in than a 35 and waiting to see ‘oh Lord, what’s this going to be?’” Owenby said. “They’re young and it may not be this year, but in the future if they stick with it they’ll be a very good team.” Owenby said McAlister played the best he’d ever seen her play this past Monday, and added that both of the freshmen have good potential. And, while the Tigers boys team is also young, junior Chase McCown can be a great leader for the three incoming freshman that will join he and fellow juniors Jordan Thomas, Cody Vaught, Jason Owens and sophomore Justin Owens. McCown is the returning region, district and county champion, and, Owenby said, can lead by example.

“Chase is a quiet type person,” Owenby said. “He’ll never be a vocal leader, and that’s fine. His example is really better than anything you can say. “Not only the way he plays, but the way he conducts himself and the way he works. Chase is a hard worker, he puts a lot of time in on the golf course, and he acts like a gentleman on the course when he’s playing — even though he may have just turned 16.” Owenby said Thomas and Vaught would likely be in the team’s top five boys players, while the two Owens and freshmen Tyler Watts, Ryan Evans and Nathaniel Burke will compete for the other top slots. So far, the freshmen are making a good impression on Owenby. “I look for (Watts) to probably crack the top five quick,” Owenby said. “Maybe even two of three (freshmen) will make the top five. We’ve got a few weeks to figure out how the lineup’s going to look.” See TIGERS, Page A9

G-P, Forge competing at 7-on-7 passing league By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer

Cobey Hitchcock/The Mountain Press

G-P rising senior Walter Barber (22) catches a pass from senior QB Tye Marshall during Thursday’s passing league action against Pigeon Forge at Heritage High School.

MARYVILLE — The Pigeon Forge Tigers and GatlinburgPittman Highlanders traveled to Heritage High School on Thursday evening to partake in some passing league action and linemen competitions. “I think this is one of the most enjoyable times of the year,” said 39th-year G-P coach Benny Hammonds. “The boys really enjoy this 7-on-7 passing.” Fourth-year Tigers coach Lee Hammonds said the new linemen competitions have generated some excitement among the bigger players on football teams. “I think this linemen challenge has been awesome, really good,” said Lee. “Getting those guys involved and letting them compete in this is a good thing. “And this 7-on-7, it’s good for us as a team. Our goal is to come out here and compete, and that’s what we’re after in this. It’s about 1-on-1 battles in this, and we’re just trying to get our timing better, and the boys are having a lot of fun with it too.” Besides the Tigers and Highlanders, teams from the host school, Cocke County, Jackson County, Austin-East and Loudon were represented at the event. Both teams remain relatively healthy with Pigeon Forge missing just Cody Davis (knee) and G-P missing D.J. Ball (foot) and Clay England (stomach) to injuries suffered earlier this offseason.

The Highlanders welcomed a new face to their team, rising senior Walter Barber, the brother of G-P basketball player Morrease Barber. Walter moved to town this year from Alabama with his mother, reportedly so the family could be together for the athletes’ senior campaigns. Walter Barber lined up at running back and receiver positions during Thursday’s passing league action. “Officially, Walter isn’t on our team until Monday,” said Benny. “He’s moved up here with his mom, and he said he wants to play some football, and we’re giving him the opportunity to do that. “He’s still got a lot of adjusting to do, but it looks like our boys have accepted him and I think he’ll fit right in with us. “We know that we have to opportunity to move the ball around a lot with the skill positions, and we’ll try to keep everybody happy as best we can and keep everybody involved. “We’ve got some boys that want their hands on the football every play, which is a good thing, but we’ll do the best job coaching and utilizing our talent that we have. “I think our players will understand that their role is to do the best that they can, go hard on every play and get along with each other, encouraging each other and supporting each other. “I think they understand their roles.”

Smokies get 5-0 win to open homestand

McIlroy rips through a defenseless Old Course

Archer yet to give up an earned run in 17 innings for Tennessee SEVIERVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The jump to Double-A ball has not been a problem at all for Chris Archer. The righty continued his impressive start with the Tennessee Smokies with five scoreless innings Wednesday night, propelling the Smokies to a 5-0 win over the Chattanooga Lookouts. The win, in front of 3,621 at Smokies Park, evens Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second half record to 10-10, 52-37 overall. Coming into Wednesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s series opener, Archer had improved on a 7-1 record and 2.86 ERA in High-A Daytona by not allowing an earned run in two previous road starts for the Smokies. His streak continued as he held Chattanooga to only three hits and two walks, while striking out four. Archer (2-1) was the recipient of some great defense early on. After getting out of a jam in the first, he was faced with a runner on second and one out one inning later. Chattanoogaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jessie Mier lined a single to Smokies RF Brandon Guyer, look-

ing to score teammate Jaime Pedroza from second. Catcher Robinson Chirinos applied the tag though to Pedroza on a perfect strike from Guyer to prevent the Lookouts from scoring, however. The Smokies offense also helped Archer out. Tony Thomasâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; triple in the second off Lookouts starter Brent Leach (4-2) brought Russ Canzler and Brandon Guyer around to give the Smokies an early 2-0 lead. Thomas crossed home on a throwing error by the Lookoutsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Corey Smith to increase the Smokiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; lead to 3-0. Canzler was in the middle of another Smokies rally in the fifth, as his double brought home Brett Jackson to give the Smokies a 4-0 lead. Robinson Chirinos followed with a single to center, bringing home Canzler to pad Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lead to 5-0. On the night, Canzler and Thomas each went 2-for-4, driving in three of the Smokiesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; five runs. The lead was more than enough for Archer and the Smokies bullpen. Relievers Jake Muyco and Marcos Mateo each threw two scoreless innings, allowing only one walk and one hit apiece, while striking out a combined five Lookouts.

point winners included Lauren Jenkins, Kaiya Walker and Tristian Lewis. The final meet of the season will be this coming Tuesday at the Oak Ridge Civic Center.

ST. ANDREWS, Scotland â&#x20AC;&#x201D; In the 137 years since the British Open first came to St. Andrews, the Old Course rarely has been such a pushover. Rarer still was the score Rory McIlroy delivered. Whether it was the luck of the draw or his tantalizing talent really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter. In conditions so calm that not a hair on his considerable mop was out of place, McIlroy set off on an incredible run into the record book Thursday with a 9-under 63 that gave him a two-shot lead. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Going out there this morning with no wind, youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re never going to get St. Andrews playing any easier,â&#x20AC;? McIlroy said. It was just as easy for John Daly, a former champion at St. Andrews and now the ultimate long shot. He first energized the gallery by bashing tee shots and making enough birdies for a 66, matching his best score in the British Open. And it was just as easy for Tiger Woods, who ran off three straight birdies late in his round for a 67. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The old lady had no clothes on today,â&#x20AC;? Tom Watson said after a 73. There were 45 rounds in the 60s, 73 players broke par and the average score was under par â&#x20AC;&#x201D; 71.75. No one took advantage like McIlroy, a 21-year-old from Northern Ireland with a game beyond his years. His 63 tied the lowest score in any major, and it was only the second such score at St. Andrews in golfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oldest championship. Of the eight players who have shot 63 in the British Open, McIlroy is the only

one to do it in the first round. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very happy that I was able to take advantage of those conditions,â&#x20AC;? said McIlroy, who had a two-shot lead over Louis Oosthuizen of South Africa. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And it gives me a little bit of a buffer going into the next three days, whatever weather comes our way.â&#x20AC;? It sure didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t feel easy in the afternoon. Not long after McIlroy finished his round, the leaden skies over St. Andrews Bay brought showers to the Old Course and a breeze that picked up strength the rest of the afternoon. Of the 16 players atop the leaderboard, only Peter Hanson (66), Bradley Dredge (66), Lee Westwood (67) and Y.E. Yang (67) teed off after the wind showed up at noon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The difference for the early and late starters was huge,â&#x20AC;? Westwood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You could have kicked it round in a low score this morning. The course was defenseless, and I actually expected somebody to post a 62. I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think I have ever known St. Andrews as calm. Hopefully, we might get a break with the weather tomorrow morning, but you never know.â&#x20AC;? Retief Goosen turned on his television just before 10 a.m. and saw Daly at 7-under par through 11 holes. The wind already was whipping flags when he teed off, and the two-time U.S. Open champion equated his 69 to a 66 had he played in the morning. He bore no grudges. Such is the fickle nature of links golf. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve still got to make a score,â&#x20AC;? Goosen said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t matter how easy it is.â&#x20AC;?

Owenby had hoped this year’s squad would be a little more experienced, but a top-five player from last year’s team, Hilton Pullen, moved out of state. “We were young last year and I thought we’d be older (this year), but we’re actually younger,” Owenby said. “We lost Logan (Baker) to graduation and lost Hilton Pullen who transferred to South Carolina. “I think we’ll do OK. We’ve got a fairly tough district again. The teams that were ahead of us last year didn’t really lose anybody. So we’ve got our hands full. We’ve got a tough schedule. “Last year we luckily

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Jensen Projectâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; marriage of 2 large companies NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; If you watch NBCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Jensen Projectâ&#x20AC;? on Friday, you probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize how much the science fiction movie owes to toothpaste and diapers. The movie is part of a broader narrative being written by the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest retailer and the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s largest consumer products company. It is produced and bankrolled by WalMart Stores Inc. and the Procter & Gamble Co. as the second of what the companies hope is a longrunning series of family friendly programs they will bring to television. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Jensen Projectâ&#x20AC;? features LeVar Burton of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rootsâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Reading Rainbow,â&#x20AC;? with Patricia Richardson of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Home Improvement.â&#x20AC;? The â&#x20AC;&#x153;projectâ&#x20AC;? is a secret community of geniuses formed to solve some of the worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s problems, and they must fight to keep a new technology from falling into evil hands. The companies consider it a perfect movie for parents to watch with their children â&#x20AC;&#x201D; without bad language or questionable content. It is material company executives say isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t often available. NBC welcomes the relationship and acknowledges that it â&#x20AC;&#x153;truly is programming that the entire family can enjoy together.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re trying to increase the supply,â&#x20AC;? Stephen Quinn, chief marketing officer at Wal-Mart, said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our belief was that the demand was there but the supply was short.â&#x20AC;? Their first project, the

movie â&#x20AC;&#x153;Secrets of the Mountain,â&#x20AC;? aired on NBC in April and was seen by a healthy audience of 7.5 million people. It was subsequently packaged by Wal-Mart to sell in its stores as a DVD and has sold more there than any other television movie, Quinn said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Jensen Projectâ&#x20AC;? will get similar treatment, and the DVD will be paired with a soundtrack produced by Randy Jackson with music from Jordin Sparks and others. The companies say their own research shows their customers want more family material. What is more important is that consumers have a more favorable view of their products, and a stronger inclination to buy them, if advertisements are associated with family friendly material. And the shows counter an opposing trend: Some consumers notice if a companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ads are seen in racy programming, and advertisers are often targeted when boycott campaigns are launched. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard of being judged by the company you keep?â&#x20AC;? said Marc Pritchard, global marketing and brand-building officer at Procter & Gamble, which makes products such as Tide laundry detergent, Crest toothpaste and Pampers disposable diapers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re judged by the company we keep.â&#x20AC;? The companies insist theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not trying to use their muscle to force out more adult-oriented fare.

Justin Kelly, left, Brady Smith and Kellie Martin in a scene from â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Jensen Project.â&#x20AC;? Instead, they want more alternatives for their brands. Wal-Mart says it has recently started advertising more on the Hallmark Channel, known for its family movies and reruns of such series as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Little House on the Prairie.â&#x20AC;? Procter & Gamble traditionally buys more television advertising than any other single company. Wal-Mart is using many ways to get the word out to its customers about â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Jensen Project,â&#x20AC;? including promotion on its Facebook page and several blogs aimed at mothers, Quinn said. Many of those customers are looking for alternatives. Family viewing is key to televisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most popular show, â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Idol.â&#x20AC;? But with scripted material, many Hollywood producers and network executives consider family friendly a synonym for dull, particularly when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re most intent on seeking young adult viewers.

Beekeeping can be risky and difficult, but also lots of fun, as Tommy Adams and his daughter Kandis Byxbe have discovered.

Beekeeping can be a honey of a job By GAIL CRUTCHFIELD Community Editor As worker bees skip from one bunch of clover to another in the yard at Jeff and Kandis Byxbe’s Sevierville home, Kandis and her father Tommy Adams suit up to check on the bees working in a hive set up last spring. For both, the practice is old hat now, with Adams having kept hives at his mountaintop home in Pigeon Forge for about eight years and Byxbe helping her dad out while he recovered from cancer two years ago. This hive, however, is the first she’s kept at her own home. “And this dadblasted thing is doing better than all three of mine,” Adams said as they prep their gear for the short trek across Byxbe’s yard to tend the bees. “Makes me so durn mad. Of course, she’s over here in farm country.” Father and daughter enjoy ribbing each other about the success and even the characteristics of their bees. Adams is happy to see another generation take an interest in what he sees as an endangered practice whose demise can have far reaching effects on the world’s ecology. Adams started beekeeping as a hobby, but that quickly turned into an obsession. “It just started out like men do fishing,” he said. “It was just a hobby, and I started out with it and it just kind of possessed me. I love it, and if you ever watch those little critters in there, those bees, what they can do at the size they are, it’s just amazing to watch them and watch that queen get up in there and lay those eggs. “But it’s not a cheap

covered by a long-sleeve shirt and her hands covered in gloves. “I’ve got three and I got her to buy this one,” Adams said, Byxbe learned how to tend to the bees while her father was recovering from cancer treatments. “She helped me through thick and then,” Adams said. “In other words she learned it and she’s doing good. And she’s not like my wife and not scared of ’em.” Gail Adams said she was glad to hand over the beekeeper assistant duties to her youngest of six children. Byxbe said she didn’t start out with the intention of getting her own hive. “I was just doing it because I didn’t want him to be out there,” she said. “He didn’t have the strength after all that chemo. So I thought, OK, we’ll get through it, but then I just kept on.” That first harvest, she said, was the turning point. “When you harvest it, you don’t realize how much you’re getting,” she said. “I was excited when I harvested the first time, really excited.” The hives yield about 30 to 40 pint- to quart-size jars. Curt Habraken/The Mountain Press Adams estimates Byxbe Byxbe and Adams take precautions when dealing could get two to four gallons with the bees, but the rewards — honey and money — of honey out of her one hive make it worthwhile. and possibly a bit more if the weather cooperates enough hobby,” he added, “But it’s give away; looks like my baby for a second harvest in the something fulfilling.” girl is going to have some, fall. Adams doesn’t sell the too.” There are plans in the honey he gets from his hives.

Blood drives hope to fill critical need Medic Regional Blood Center, like most other community blood banks across the county, is experiencing a decline in donations. “Summer months are extremely difficult for us— the need quickly outpaces the collections this time of year,” said Medic spokeswoman Christi Fightmaster.

but are critically short on O-Negative, the universal blood type most often needed during emergency situations when blood type is not known.

Missionaries spend time in other states PIGEON FORGE — John and Sharon Sutton, who form Missionaries for Christ, have been busy for several months with mission trips to such places as South Dakota, Virginia, Oklahoma, Colorado, Kansas, Wyoming and Nebraska. They were in Bristol, Va., to distribute free Bibles and toys at Scenic View Baptist Church. The Suttons played guitar and handed out the supplies. They drove back to Pigeon Forge after Sunday worship services. They also gathered items for a mission trip to the Oklahoma Indian Mission and then other work in several other states. They traveled 9,000 miles and were gone for 53 days on that trip. Each of the 21 children at the Oklahoma mission received a hat with their name on it and a sun visor. Along the way they were invited to take their aging van to South Carolina for free transmission work and a set of tires. On their trip to the Cherokee Indian Mission each child received a new watch along with T-shirts, hats and toys. In Colorado they faced snow but still performed a gospel concert at a senior center. They ministered through music and testimony at a church in Greeley, Col. Churches the Suttons visited and spoke at also donated socks for them to take to Sioux Indians in South Dakota. Toys were provided by Buckhorn Presbyterian Church in Masonville, Col. The Suttons gave away hundreds of Bibles, tracks and toys to children in Atwood, Kan. Their visit to the Pine Ridge Indian reservations, part of the Sioux Nation, featured a gospel concert, free food and free Bibles and toys. They visited the Cheyenne River Reservation in South Dakota, handing out T-shirts, books, caps, toiletry items, toys and Bibles. A mission team from Sevier Heights Baptist Church in Knox County arrived to teach a Sunday School class, while the Suttons performed during the worship service. Missionaries for Christ is a tax-deductible organization. To support the mission, send checks to Solid Rock Ministries Inc., P.O. Box 829, Pigeon Forge 37868. Write Missionaries for Christ on the check.

Hope is vital to our being Miracles still happen. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what my wife Jean said when I told her three morning glories were in full bloom and two more were close to blooming when I walked down the driveway today. There, of course, is a story behind this â&#x20AC;&#x153;miracle.â&#x20AC;? In March, Jean planted morning glory seeds in a couple of places, watered and cared for them, and the vines began to flourish. Earlier than expected, a couple of morning glories appeared and Jean was thrilled. But then one day she looked out the window at some of the vines â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and saw a rabbit chomping away. Jean loves rabbits. She created a sign years ago titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Rabbit Hillâ&#x20AC;? to place on our property. We do have a lot of rabbits and she likes to watch them eat grass. But now, chewing on her morning glory vines? As Queen Victoria would say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are not amused.â&#x20AC;? We later discovered a rabbit (or rabbits) had also been chewing on the vines down the driveway. And, on top of this, insect holes had begun appearing in the leaves. Best I recall, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve only had one morning glory bloom on the vine that can be viewed from the window. On the vine down the driveway, a single morning glory has appeared every now and then. At the bottom, this chewed-on vine is holey in places and withered in others. But, nevertheless, today the multiple blooms were present.

Wife at odds with husband over constant differing opinions



Baby Blues

Dear Annie: I’ve never seen my problem in your column before. Whenever my husband is confronted with an opinion that is not to his liking, he sticks his fingers in his ears to block out the sound. He also will not discuss anything if you don’t agree with his point of view. He doesn’t listen to counter-arguments. Nor does he consider that he may be hurting someone’s feelings. He used to talk over anyone who expressed a different opinion, but the ear plugging is really annoying and frustrating. I have lived with both of these “afflictions” for more than 20 years and have just about had it. I need help. -- Way Down Yonder Dear Way: How very mature of him. Plugging your ears is what 5-yearolds do. Write your husband a note. Say that his behavior has become increasingly childish, and you are worried that it is a neurological problem or a sign of incipient dementia. Ask him to see his doctor for a complete checkup. Beyond that, we recommend you stop having such discussions with him, since it is irritating and frustrating for you and accomplishes nothing. Say, “Yes, Dear,” and change the subject. Dear Annie: In the past three years, my husband and I have become friends with another couple, “Lynn and Bob.” Lynn and I have become quite close. Bob is more introverted. My husband isn’t crazy about him. We’ve recently

learned that he suffers from depression and has received extensive therapy. Last week, we spent a pleasant evening with them. After my husband and Lynn had already gone out the front door, Bob proceeded to give me a hug, pulling me very tightly into his chest, with his hand on my posterior. He didn’t release me until I managed to push him away. I was totally startled. He laughed and said, “I just wanted to see what you would do.” He then went out the door as if nothing had happened, while I regained my composure. Bob and Lynn left the next morning for a threeweek vacation, so I said nothing. Annie, I really enjoy my friendship with Lynn, but if I divulge this information to my husband, it will mean the end of the friendship. He’d become totally unglued. I’ve thought about confronting Bob privately, but I’m not sure that’s a good idea, either. How should I handle this? -In a Quandary Dear Quandary: The next time you see Bob, inform him that if he so much as touches you, you will tell his wife and your husband about the prior incident. Then make sure you follow through. In the meantime, try to see Lynn when Bob is not present.

Tina’s Groove

It sounds as if your husband wouldn’t mind too much if he stopped socializing with them. Dear Annie: I wanted to comment on the letter from “Disgusted in Pennsylvania,” whose stepdaughter smokes in the car while the children are present. In Arkansas, this is a misdemeanor. Parents smoking in vehicles with small children present may be stopped and ticketed and may face a visit from child welfare authorities. Obviously, our lawmakers view this as a form of child abuse. The mother should reconsider reporting the stepdaughter. -- Don’t Do That in Arkansas Dear Arkansas: Actually, four states (Arkansas, Louisiana, California and Maine), as well as several communities, Puerto Rico and large swaths of Canada now have laws prohibiting adults from smoking in cars with young children in tow, and more are pending. Seven states currently prohibit smoking in cars that transport foster children. We are certain this is just the beginning.

SEYMOUR â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Members of Oak City Baptist Church responded to the needs of Seymourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s local food ministry, Christians Reaching Out Serving Seymour (CROSS). At the invitation of CROSS volunteer Brenda Manis, the agency president, Dottie Sollman, spoke at a meeting of Oak City Baptist Women and Men of Missions last spring. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I merely educated them on the many needs and ways in which their church could help serve the community through CROSS,â&#x20AC;? Sollman said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I could not have fathomed how one little speaking engagement could or would move the hearts of so many people to respond.â&#x20AC;? Several church members started volunteering at the CROSS office after the talk, and others have followed since. Within a week, another member committed to keeping the lawn mowed and trimmed whenever needed. More recently, the Oak City Baptist Men of Missions group tore down the termite-rid-

dled out buildings that were in the way of the agencyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s loading dock and paid the costs to get rid of the construction waste. Even Pastor Bryan Creswell was out there in the heat working with that group of men. Another member is taking care of electrical wiring and hanging light fixtures in the warehouse. CROSS needed ramps at three uneven door thresholds to make it easier to roll the food cart through the building. That job done was done as well, although the agency doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who did it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just awesome to see such an all-out effort made by just one small, country church,â&#x20AC;? Sollman said.
