Local man faces federal charges

‘Beau’ Johnson alleged to have filed false claims against U.S., defrauded government By STAN VOIT Editor

5Bears getting timing down Sevier County looks sharp in 7-on-7 drills vs. CAK SPORTS, Page A8

A Tennessee grand jury has indicted Walter Allen “Beau” Johnson of Sevierville for filing false claims against the United States as well as conspiring to defraud the government.

The announcement was made Friday by the Justice Department and Internal Revenue Service. The indictment alleges that Johnson, while an inmate in a state prison, conspired to defraud the U.S. by submitting false tax returns claiming refunds on behalf of inmates from February

2006 through January 2007. The indictment says Johnson collected social security numbers from inmates and recruited other inmates to collect social security numbers for him. According to the indictment, Johnson used those Social Security numbers to file false income tax forms with

the IRS in the names of inmates, claiming refunds to which the inmates were not entitled. The indictment alleges that Johnson and his co-conspirators collected approximately 88 U.S. Treasury checks as a result of the See CHARGES, Page A4

Adam Dooley. “Even if I wasn’t his pastor I’d be voting for Zach Wamp,” Dooley said at the rally that started and ended with prayers, included entertainment by a band and a fly-over by a small plane towing a Wamp banner.

Improving 66 a year later: Some good, some not By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer

DETAILS, Page A4

primary voting is under way in Tennessee and election officials expect more than half of all voters who will cast ballots this summer to take advantage of the head start. The Aug. 5 primary vote will decide the Republican gubernatorial nominee from among Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam, state Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey and U.S. Rep. Zach Wamp. Haslam and Ramsey kicked off their day of campaign in Memphis. About 30 people attended a morning Haslam rally that also served as the start of his statewide bus tour. “We have 20 days — 20 days — until election day,” Haslam said. “It is critically important that we sprint to the finish line.” Ken Hall listened to a short speech from Haslam and took photos of the candidate at a later event at the Hard Rock Cafe on Beale Street. He said he planned to vote for Haslam early next week at a community center. “I like to avoid the big long lines. What if I had

Clevenger earns scholarship for E. Tennessee History Day By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer When Hannah Clevenger found out she was the recipient of the $3,000 East Tennessee History Day Scholarship, she couldn’t quite believe it. “You filled out an application and explained how your project was related East Tennessee,” said Hannah, who presented “Foxfire: Preserving the Past, Changing the Future” at the district, state and national competitions. “I didn’t think I would get it, but my regional director encouraged me to use my powers of persuasion since it

was Appalachian history.” Sure enough, Hannah recently received a letter saying she was selected as the winner. “We were both kind of dancing around, saying, ‘Is this real?’” mother Gail Clevenger added with a laugh. This is the first year the scholarship, sponsored by Knoxville philanthropists Randy and Jenny Boyd, was offered.

gling for funds. While the state had pledged to pay for the $38 million project, it was eventually paid for using money from the federal stimulus package. That package was intended to create and save jobs, and in this case, that’s just what it has done, said Doug Blalock of local contractor Charles Blalock & Sons. “This was not a bailout, this

was a rescue of jobs,” he said. If they hadn’t gotten the contract, his company would have had to lay off 100 employees, he said. After winning it, they hired 17 new employees and rehired eight. In the long run, he said, he hopes it will help other businesses See improving 66, Page A4

district 10, seat b

District 10, Seat B candidates respond to questions Candidates for the Sevier County Commission, 10th District, Seat B, in the Aug. 5 general election are Republican incumbent Jim Keener, who won the May primary; and independent candidates Steven Brenner and David DeArmond. The same set of questions was sent to each candidate. District 10 is in the western part of the county around Seymour.

Steve Brenner n Address: 2693 Boyds Creek Highway, Sevierville n Age: 55 n

Occupation: Sales representative, Appalachia Business Brenner Communications Corp. for 32 years n Family: Wife Sharon Reagan Brenner; daughter and son-in-law Robin and Travis Loveday; grandchildren Jake, 9; Matt, 6; and Reagan, 2 n Education: Bachelor of science education, University of Tennessee, 1976 n Community/civic involvement: None listed

1. What do you think the biggest issues facing the county will be in the next four years? STEVE BRENNER: I believe the most important issues facing Sevier County include delivering services to our county residents while maintaining a balanced budget; accommodating the increasing population of the county with new schools; with the 2010 Census completed, we will be faced with redrawing the district lines of many elected officials, so reapportionment will be a big issue; and the need to implement rules for residential or commercial development that protect the home owner, the property owners near proposed developments, and the mountains. DAVID DeARMOND: Budget and spending. JIM KEENER: The biggest issue to face us in the next four years will probably be how we will fund services in this economic downturn we are all facing. Roads, schools, police, ambulance service, fire protection, solid waste collection and the county’s obligation to public health that must be provided. There are also many other issues such as traffic congestion and funding of our new library that will have to be addressed. In the past we have always been able to provide services primarily from revenues received from sales tax and a low property tax rate. We will have to reassess our current funding priorities if the financial situation continues. There will probably have to be cuts made in some expenditures in order to fund essential services. It will take a county commission that understands the situation and one that can work together with other elected officials to make sure waste is eliminated and all essential services remain funded.

benefit from the deflated real estate market by acquiring land that can be developed, with some level of certainty, into a source of new jobs, then it should be considered. DAVID DeARMOND: If it’s a profitable investment with business interested. JIM KEENER: It just makes good sense that if the right type of property became available, and if we had good companies willing to come to Sevier County that would bring good jobs for our citizens, then yes, I would support buying property suitable for these types of companies to purchase from the county. However, we should also look at situations similar to the recent cooperation with the Lisega Company where our Economic Development Council could work with the potential company to locate property already for sale in the county and assist in any way we can to bring about such a company’s location to Sevier County.

2. Do you support purchasing more industrial property, even in a slow economy? STEVE BRENNER: Sevier County should always be looking to add good jobs. If we can

3. What do you think Sevier County should do to give itself a more year-round economy? STEVE BRENNER: By combining a search for new industry and expanding the various

seasonal events sponsored by the county, cities, Dollywood and other attractions, we are on the right track towards a more year-round economy. DAVID DeARMOND: Bring in more industry. JIM KEENER: Our efforts should focus on finding companies that will bring good paying, year round jobs with good benefits and working conditions for our citizens. Industry has been reluctant to locate here because of limited access to ship products. Because we have no rail service in Sevier County, industries are forced to move their products by truck and traffic is always an issue. That is why several years ago, I suggested to County Mayor Waters and the Development Council that we locate an industrial park near the interstate. Consequently, they purchased property in Northview. Several other companies have located and are planning to locate near the 407 exit. This is an example of how we have to work with prospective employers to make Sevier County attractive to them to locate here.

cuts. What is your assessment of Sevier County’s financial situation? STEVE BRENNER: Sevier County is fortunate to have a local economy that benefits from the tourist industry. We need to protect this revenue source by making Sevier County a more popular destination. By improving our infrastructure and protecting the natural beauty of the Great Smoky Mountains, we insure that people will continue to visit here. DAVID DeARMOND: If cuts are needed, then they should be considered. JIM KEENER: See answer number one.

5. The county has no nepotism policy or a policy that limits county employees from holding office. Should there be a policy that addresses this issue? STEVE BRENNER: I am running partly in response to the concerns that the majority of our County Commission is made up of people who work for the county or are closely related to county employees. I believe this contributes to conflicts of interest and the possibil-

Tennessee gubernatorial candidate Bill Haslam speaks in front of his campaign bus during a tour of Shelby County on Friday onthe first day of early voting. The Republican was speaking to a small crowd gathered outside a Hard Rock Café on Beale Street in Memphis. “Tennessee, don’t let the Haslams buy it,” he said. Dairy equipment retiree Bob Doremus of Chattanooga stood in the sweltering sunshine holding a homemade Wamp campaign sign. “I believe he is telling the truth,” Doremus, 78, said afterward. “He brings out the truth in everything, like the religion in it.” Later Friday, Ramsey received the endorsement of a handful of state legislators at his Memphis campaign office. “My campaign has peaked at exactly the right time,” Ramsey said. “People are just now starting to examine the candidates.”

Ramsey said early voting has made campaigns more expensive because it requires getting the message out earlier. “It’s made billionaires like Bill Haslam be more likely to be elected because he has an unlimited amount of funds,” Ramsey said. Gov. Phil Bredesen can’t run again because of term limits. Jackson businessman Mike McWherter, son of former Gov. Ned McWherter, is the only Democrat running to succeed him. McWherter voted Friday in Jackson with his wife Mary Jane and their 18-year-old son

Walker, who was casting his first ballot. The primary will also determine which candidates will matchups for three open congressional seats. Democratic Reps. John Tanner of Union City and Bart Gordon of Murfreesboro are retiring and Wamp is giving up his East Tennessee seat to run for governor. Another contentious primary is between Democratic Rep. Steve Cohen and former Memphis Mayor Willie Herenton in the 9th District. Both candidates have early voting rallies planned for today.

from some businesses, especially from those in the Sevierville Commons, where work on the outer section of the road has limited access to stores and restaurants. Mayor Bryan Atchley complimented Blalock and TDOT officials for working with those business owners as much as they could during the project. They’ve made several efforts to keep communications open, he said. Blalock noted his company has made extra efforts to try and improve access to the mall, including paving work that could have been completed more efficiently and at less cost

if they’d waited. “That cost us money but we chose to work with the businesses,” he said. Officials also confirmed that work on the median and the center lanes will require some lane closures and shifts in traffic at some point. The contract calls for work on the first phase to end by November 2011. In the meantime, TDOT has advertised bids for the next phase of Improving 66, which will run from Douglas Dam Road to Interstate 40. The bids will be opened in August. Steve Borden, region director for TDOT, said funds for that project are

already included in the state budget and most of the right of way acquisition is finished. The project will also include a third phase that will run from Douglas Dam ton Nichols Street, crossing the bridge over the French Broad River. Officials have said work on the bridge will be the costliest and most difficult part of the project. Until it’s completed, however, the unfinished third phase of the project will create a bottleneck along Highway 66 — something officials had hoped to avoid.

gasp in the auditorium. “A lot of people were disappointed because they didn’t know (about the scholarship),” Hannah said. “Hopefully, this will encourage other students to participate in History Day.” Hannah’s history project examined Foxfire Magazine, which was developed in an effort to document the lifestyle, culture and skills of people in Southern Appalachia. With the East Tennessee History Day Scholarship,

she will receive $1,500 her first semester in college and the remaining $1,500 her second semester as long as she keeps a “B” grade point average. “I was kind of disappointed I didn’t place at National History Day — but this has made me feel a lot better,” she said with a grin. Entering her junior year at Gatlinburg Pittman High School in the fall, Hannah is looking at possible colleges, including Sewanee (The University of the South) and Warren Wilson College in North Carolina. Before the summer ends, she’ll attend the Tennessee 4-H Roundup at The

University of Tennessee at Martin to present a project on clothing and textiles. “I did a short documentary and examined how fabric and fashion changed during World War II.” The historical society is “thrilled” about the new scholarship that has been offered in its name, Gail said. “It’s so nice that they upped the ante. It gets kids working on their own...”

“And it gets them excited about learning,” Hannah added. For more information on the East Tennessee Historical Society, visit www.easttnhistory.org. For more information on National History Day, visit www.nationalhistoryday.org.

”I’m just sick of my surroundings and need some outside stimulation. I sincerely feel like I no longer fit in or belong in this place (prison). So I’ve made it a goal to get out soon and move forward in life.” If convicted, Johnson

and “the Scripture says that where there is no vision people perish.” that where there is no vision people perish.” “We need vision in American politics today,” he said. Wamp said he was undeterred by the fundraising efforts of Haslam, whose $9.1 million total is more than Wamp and Ramsey combined. Wamp said $5 million “for a good candidate, that’s all it’s going to take.”

Two arrested for flat-screen thievery Staff Report SEVIERVILLE — The sheriff’s department arrested two men Thursday on sealed indictments for attempted felony theft. Korey V. Brandenburg, 22, of 808 Boyds Creek Highway in Seymour, and Keith V. Brandenburg, 45, of 3113 Lewelling Court in Kodak, were arrested without incident. The indictments stemmed from what Sheriff Ron Seals said is an ongoing investigation that started in April. The two are charged with breaking in to rental cabins to steal flat screen televisions, Seals said. They were both released from the Sevier County Jail.

Obamas get away for Maine weekend By MARK S. SMITH Associated Press Writer ACADIA NATIONAL PARK, Maine — Cheered by a key victory in Congress and good news from the Gulf oil spill zone, a relaxed President Barack Obama began a weekend holiday Friday on a sundappled mountain peak overlooking the rocky Atlantic coast. Within hours of landing at the Bar Harbor airport in a smaller version of Air Force One, Obama, his wife Michelle and daughters Malia and Sasha were clambering over the granite outcrops at the summit of Cadillac Mountain in Acadia National Park. At 1,530 feet, it’s the tallest peak along the East Coast, according to the National Park Service. The family also went cycling for an hour on a secluded bike trail along a nearby lake. Their visit was scheduled to end Sunday morning; no public events were planned. The brief vacation quickly yielded plenty of photos of a president who knew he’s had a good week. Before leaving Washington, Obama went before TV cameras in the White House Rose Garden to bask in the latest news from the Gulf — that for the first time in 12 weeks no oil was flowing from the ruptured underwater well. Obama, clearly relieved, called it “good news” but stressed that the cap in place was at best a temporary measure, pending the permanent cementing of the well. That is expected to happen sometime next month. Still, the news was hugely welcome after weeks of rising public frustration that often forced Team Obama on the defensive.

Associated Press

President Barack Obama, first lady Michelle Obama, daughters Sasha and Malia, and senior adviser Valerie Jarrett return to the harbor after they took a boat tour of Frenchman Bay in Bar Harbor, Maine, on Friday. It also came a day after the Senate sent him a package of new financial market rules that Obama insisted are crucial to the economic recovery and necessary to prevent a repeat of the severe financial collapse of 2008. But in Maine, for a couple of days, Obama seemed happy to leave the politics behind and concentrate on his family. After leaving the mountain, they stopped at Mount Desert Island Ice Cream for cones. “I went with coconut,” Obama said as he walked out of the shop. Licking his cone, he said: “This stuff is terrific. Excellent. I strongly recommend it.” He shook hands and posed for photos with some German exchange students, telling them “Guten tag” or “Hello.” The area around Bar Harbor is a scenic retreat favored by the rich and famous, from Rockefellers

and Vanderbilts to movie stars. Aides said the Obamas planned to spend much of their time in the 47,000-acre national park. Their first stop was Witch Hole Pond and a bike trail cleared of users by rangers and the Secret Service. The Obamas rode in private as an ocean wind ruffled the trees, aides said. An hour later, they were back in the motorcade of SUVs and driving a switchback road to the mountain summit. From there, the Obamas surveyed a spectacular stretch of Maine’s rocky coast — Frenchman Bay and Somes Sound, bright blue in the sunlight, hugging the outlines of Mount Desert Island and partially obscured by scattered cloud banks below. Sasha, 9, balanced on a granite boulder with her arms in the air, and Malia, 12, had her arms around her mother’s back as the park superintendent pointed out features to

the president. Obama shook hands with tourists in a parking lot before leaving. “You brought the sunshine,” shouted one. “At the control center of the White House, we move the clouds around,” Obama deadpanned. Later, a boat tour of Frenchman Bay was cut short by 20 minutes when it became cloudy, fog rolled in and it began to rain. After the boat docked at the edge of Bar Harbor, the Obamas went to dinner at a harborside restaurant. Obama’s vacation time as president has been relatively spare. He’s spent some or all of just 65 days on vacation, including at Camp David, according to Mark Knoller, a CBS News reporter the White House recognizes for his record-keeping. By contrast, George W. Bush’s total after 18 months in office was 120 vacation days.

N A T I O N / W or l d B R I E F S WASHINGTON (AP) — The 73-year-old great grandson of Alexander Graham Bell was sentenced Friday to life in prison without parole for quietly spying for Cuba for nearly a third of a century from inside the State Department. His wife was sentenced to 5 1/2 years. Retired intelligence analyst Kendall Myers said he meant his country no harm and stole secrets only to help Cuba’s people who “have good reason to feel threatened” by U.S. intentions of ousting the communist Castro government. But U.S. District Judge Reggie Walton said Myers and his 72-year-old wife, Gwendolyn, had betrayed America and should receive heavy punishment. “You never know what the effect will be” from stealing classified information, said the judge. Someone “could be killed.” Justice Department prosecutor Michael Harvey said the couple received medals from Cuban intelligence and were flown to the island nation for a visit with Fidel Castro in 1995. They pleaded guilty last November.

3-story parking garage collapses

HACKENSACK, N.J. (AP) — A glass canopy attached to a high-rise condominium building fell onto a parking garage two stories below on Friday, partially collapsing the underground structure and trapping at least one person, authorities said. Using a remote-controlled camera, rescuers could see the victim in a car on the first level down but couldn’t get to the person because they were concerned about the possibility of another collapse at the three-story garage, Hackensack fire Lt. Stephen Lindner said. They could not determine the victim’s condition. Crews were clearing debris and shoring up the structure before they could attempt to rescue the victim.

A secret of da Vinci portraits cracked

PARIS (AP) — The enigmatic smile remains a mystery, but French scientists say they have cracked a few secrets of the “Mona Lisa.” French researchers studied seven of the Louvre Museum’s Leonardo da Vinci paintings, including the “Mona Lisa,” to analyze the master’s use of successive ultrathin layers of paint and glaze - a technique that gave his works their dreamy quality. Specialists from the Center for Research and Restoration of the Museums of France found that da Vinci painted up to 30 layers of paint on his works to meet his standards of subtlety. Added up, all the layers are less than 40 micrometers, or about half the thickness of a human hair, researcher Philippe Walter said Friday. The technique, called “sfumato,” allowed da Vinci to give outlines and contours a hazy quality and create an illusion of depth and shadow. His use of the technique is well-known, but scientific study on it has been limited because tests often required samples from the paintings. The French researchers used a noninvasive technique called X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy to study the paint layers and their chemical composition. They brought their specially developed high-tech

Sale of Lucy Ball memorabilia blocked

LOS ANGELES (AP) — Some of Lucille Ball’s love letters and awards will be sold at auction after a judge ruled to block the sale but imposed a hurdle that the comedienne’s daughter cannot overcome. While Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Robert O’Brien agreed to block the sale Friday, he imposed a $250,000 bond that Lucie Arnaz Luckinbill would have to pay to get a restraining order issued. Her attorney, Ronald Palmieri, said the amount is too high and can’t be met. “We won on a legal basis, and the judge took it away from us on an economic basis,” Palmieri said. “That is very sad.” Luckinbill is the daughter of Ball and first husband Desi Arnaz. She sought the return of some of the items after Susie Morton, the widow of Ball’s second husband, Gary Morton, offered them for sale. Ball and Gary Morton were married until the time of the actress’ death in 1989. He later married Susie Morton. She consigned several items to Heritage Auction Galleries, including a Rolls-Royce, some of the couple’s love letters, photos and Ball’s personal items. The items are scheduled to go on sale Saturday at an auction being conducted online and in Beverly Hills, Calif. QUALITY EYEWEAR AT AMAZINGLY LOW PRICES!

MIAMI (AP) — Federal authorities said Friday they are conducting the largest Medicare fraud bust ever in five different states and arrested dozens of suspects accused in scams totaling $251 million. Several doctors and nurses were among those arrested in Miami, New York City, Detroit, Houston and Baton Rouge, La., accused of billing Medicare for unnecessary equipment, physical therapy and HIV treatments that patients typically never received. Ninety-four suspects were indicted, and authorities said 36 people had been arrested as of Friday morning. More than 360 agents participated in Friday’s raids, announced by Attorney General Eric Holder and Health and Human Services Secretary Kathleen Sebelius at a health care fraud prevention summit in Miami. Officials said they chose Miami because it is ground zero for Medicare fraud. Authorities indicted 33 suspects in the Miami area, accused of charging Medicare for about $140 million in various scams. “With today’s arrests we’re putting would-be crimi-

nals on notice: health care fraud is no longer a safe bet,” Holder said Friday.

Judge rebuked for hiring daughter NASHVILLE (AP) — A Nashville judge has been publicly reprimanded for hiring her daughter as her court officer. A Friday letter from the Tennessee Court of the Judiciary to Davidson County General Sessions Judge Gloria Dumas states that the hiring violated judicial ethics, which require a judge to make appointments based on merit. The letter says the judge’s actions undermine public confidence in the administration of justice. The court filed formal misconduct charges against Dumas last October.

TODAY’S FORECAST

LOCAL:

In its Friday order, the court agreed to retire a charge of persistent tardiness in 90 days on the condition that Dumas convenes court in a timely manner and regularly conducts her own docket. She had also been charged with using too many substitute judges. That count was dismissed.

Lawmaker complains about illegal immigrants

NASHVILLE (AP) — State Rep. Mike Turner of Old Hickory has complained to Tennessee labor officials that illegal immigrants

are working at the construction site of Nashville’s convention center. A spokesman for the construction contractor said the matter has been investigated and no evidence was found of illegal immigrants at the project. Turner, a longtime labor union leader, said he was told that such immigrants were on site. According to The Tennessean newspaper, he also said he had visited the location as a firefighter and saw workers there speaking Spanish. A spokesman for the Tennessee Department of Labor declined comment until a state investigation is finished.

CHICAGO (AP) —Erin Andrews says hotels should pay — more than $1 million — for making her the easy target of a stalker. T h e 32-yearold ESPN sportscaster is suing Radisson Hotels I n t e r national Inc. and Andrews Marriott International Inc. for alleged negligence. She charges they gave out private information, such as her room number, allowing a man obsessed with her to secretly video her naked through a hotel keyhole. She is seeking $1.2 million from the hotels. She is also suing Michael David Barrett, who pleaded guilty to stalking Andrews last year, for invasion of privacy and inflicting emotional distress. In 2008, Barrett rented rooms across the hall from Andrews, videoed her while she was undressed and then uploaded the images to the Internet.

commentary

three cheers Veta King’s new book tribute to Pigeon Forge

NAACP off base in claims According to NAACP President Ben Jealous, the tea party is chock full of racist people bent on harming African-Americans. Speaking at the organization’s annual convention this week, Jealous let loose on the tea folks: “Here comes the genetic descendent of the White Citizens Council, burst from its coffin, carrying signs and slogans like ‘Lynch Barack Hussein Obama’...” An exhaustive search of media reportage on the tea parties turns up no mention of signs like that. And even if they existed, is it fair to demonize an entire movement because a few nuts are associated with it? Does the NAACP want to be evaluated on that basis? From the beginning of its ascent, the tea party has been targeted by the far left in America. They fear the populist movement because of its small-government philosophy and its successful activism. The cheapest, easiest way to attack any political opponent is to level accusations of bigotry. Almost every conservative broadcaster and columnist in America has been subjected to that. The NAACP picked a bad time to brand the tea party with the racist label. Recently, the New Black Panther Party has been in the news because the Justice Department declined to prosecute a case in which three of its members apparently intimidated voters at a Philadelphia polling place. One DOJ lawyer even quit his job, saying he was ordered not to pursue the case because it involved race. In response to the story, a number of New Black Panthers have been shown on TV saying incredibly bigoted things. NBPP member King Samir Shabazz even suggested that black Americans kill white babies. This is on tape. Obviously, racial bigotry cuts both ways. It is true that there’s a big difference between the tea party and the NBPP. The tea people have quickly become a potent political force in America, while the NBPP is few in number and brain cells. If it were just about the Panthers, the story would be meaningless. But because Attorney General Eric Holder is involved in the dismissal of the criminal charges, the situation takes on some importance. One of the weaknesses of the NAACP is that it has rarely acknowledged black racism. The organization is silent on the Rev. Jeremiah Wright and Louis Farrakhan. Yet, it is outraged about the tea party. There might be something hypocritical about that. It is long past time for all Americans to drop the skin color deal. President Obama was smart and correct when he ran as an American, not as an AfricanAmerican. The president made one misstep — involving himself in the Cambridge police-Harvard professor controversy — but otherwise has steered clear of racial politics. The NAACP, however, is obviously not as astute as Obama. By saying the tea party members are sympathetic to racism when proof of that is scant, the organization has defined itself as irresponsible. America’s motto continues to be: Out of many, one. Don’t tread on that. — Veteran TV news anchor Bill O Reilly is host of the Fox News show “The O Reilly Factor” and author of the book “Who’s Looking Out For You? Distributed by Creators Syndicate. (C)2009 Bill O’Reilly.

Veta King’s love of history and all things Pigeon Forge came together in a nice and positive way. She has published “Images of America — Pigeon Forge,” a book of mostly photos showing the history, structures and people who paved the way for this Sevier County city. It wasn’t always such an attraction, of course. The city was a sleepy crossroads for decades, dominated by the Old Mill and farming. King spent weeks calling, following up on leads and combing through personal archives to find the right mix of photos to make the book entertaining and informative. It is a must-read and a must-have. The book comes out in time for the observance of the 50th anniversary of Pigeon Forge’s incorporation. This effort by King dovetails well with that observance. Thanks, Veta King, for the time and effort to put together this most worthwhile project.

Marian Oates’ legacy lives Trail program in park great on through UT scholarship way to show volunteer spirit

The late Marian Oates was second to none when it came to support for her community. She was a big supporter of the Boys & Girls Clubs, Mountain Hope Good Shepherd Clinic, land preservation and the library. She also knew that education was the ticket to a life of fulfillment and pleasure. Oates established a Teacher Enrichment Scholarship for the University of Tennessee College of Arts and Sciences. The scholarship was to be given annually to an East Tennessee middle school science teacher. This year’s winner is April Meyers, an eight-grade teacher at Norris Middle School in Anderson County. Let’s hope Meyers appreciates not just the benefits of the scholarship, but the person behind it. Oates knew that encouraging classroom teachers made for better instruction and thus better students. The scholarship will be used for Meyers’ professional development. Marian Oates’ legacy of support lives on.

Great Smoky Mountains National Park is recruiting volunteers to participate in the Adopt-a-Trail program that helps to maintain the park’s 800mile trail system. This is a great way to enjoy the outdoors and make a positive impact on our national park. The Volunteers in Parks program has integrated volunteerism into many of its operations, including trail maintenance that covers everything from picking up litter to removing treefalls and reporting trail problems. Because the park doesn’t change admission and has few ways to generate income, volunteers make or break so many efforts and programs. Maintaining the trails is one way people can make a positive contribution while doing something enjoyable. A mandatory training program is scheduled July 31 in the North Carolina area of the park for those who are interested in participating. Contact Christine Hoyer, trails and facilities volunteer coordinator (828-497-1949 or e-mail to Christine_Hoyer@nps.gov).

Political view

Public forum Signage usually doesn’t work because most ignore the message

Editor: I am writing in response to the July 13 letter, in which the author suggests there be more signs in place to help ease the weekend outbound traffic through Sevierville. While I applaud the author’s idea and would personally love to see this succeed to eliminate some of the traffic congestion, I fear this would be a lost cause. Simply put, signs do not work. I have lived in this beautiful area for close

to a decade now. But one thing I’ve noticed is how signs, regardless of how blunt they may be, do not get messages across. This is not limited to traffic signs alone. Anyone who has worked in an establishment with a “No Public Restroom” or “Guest Parking Only” sign can agree that many clearly posted signs are highly ineffective. In Gatlinburg we have signs clearly showing incoming traffic on the Parkway which lanes go straight and which lanes turn onto River Road. Yet on any given Saturday afternoon, go stand on the corner at traffic light #6 and simply observe how well this is getting the point across.

Dollywood has been trying for years to get cars headed to their newer parking entrance adjacent to Splash Country. The National Park has emphasized with signs the dangers of feeding wildlife. Yet the black bear Laurel, as well as anyone else involved with the fiasco, could agree that those failed. So in theory, the author of the July 13 letter had an excellent idea. But I’m afraid the results, if any, would be too few and far between to justify the costs to implement them. Erik Mauldin Gatlinburg

SC Bears outshine CAK in 7-on-7 passing drills By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — Sevier County coach Steve Brewer is beginning to like what he’s seeing. After a tough start to the week in 7-on-7 drills in Dorman, S.C., his Bears are finally starting to get their timing down, and it’s showing on the field. Friday at home against visiting Christian Academy of Knoxville, the Smoky Bears played well on both sides of the ball, scoring almost at will with their starters and limiting the Warriors to only occasional touchdowns in the scoring-friendly passing drills. SC quarterbacks Danny Chastain and Cullen Lavoi both had multiple touchdown passes, and were connecting well with receivers Bryant Gilson, Brett Pippin, Josh Johnson and Dillon Cate. “I thought (the quarterbacks) looked good,” Brewer said. “I think we’re going to be OK at that position.” On defense the Bears’ secondary were ballhawks. Tyler Wischer had an early interception and had several more sterling pass breakups, and sophomore Logan McCarter added a pair of interceptions on back-toback CAK possessions. “I thought we were breakSee SMOKY BEARS, Page A9

G-P’s Hammonds pleased with skill positions so far By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer MARYVILLE — The Gatlinburg-Pittman Highlanders looked sharp in 7-on-7 passing league competition Thursday evening at Heritage High School, with both starting quarterback Tye Marshall and backup Ryan Myers connecting with several G-P receivers for long TD strikes. Rising senior receiver Ron Durbin stood out with several nice scoring grabs on long passes from both QBs to go along with several defensive

interceptions playing in the Blue-and-Gold secondary. But Jeremy Hibbard, Ryan Taylor, Dillon Reagan and Ty Smith also showed G-P some good things out of the skill positions. Also, newcoming Alabama transfer Walter Barber joined the mix of action, making some nice plays out of the running back and receiver positions. “You can tell that the skill positions are kindly a bright spot for us,” said 39th-year G-P coach Benny Hammonds. “This is really the first time we’ve got to work (since spring). You

can tell that we’ve got some experience coming back, and that’s being good to us, but at the same time we’re not as sharp as far as our timing goes. “This gives us the opportunity to work on that, and it gives us an opportunity to look at some of our freshmen and sophomores, some of those younger kids and see how they’ve matured and grown. “But these older skill boys have really worked a lot on their own together, and they’ve stayed pretty sharp.” chitchcock@themountainpress.com

Longballs propel Smokies to 15-5 win over Lookouts Canzler, Chirinos, Spencer and Vitters homer KODAK – It was “Home Run Derby” at Smokies Park Thursday night between the Tennessee Smokies and Chattanooga Lookouts. While only coming out ahead 4-to-3 in the long ball tally, Tennessee came out way ahead in a 15-5 win over the Lookouts in front of 3,354 fans. The win is the team’s third in a row and puts the Smokies at 11-10 in the season’s second half, 53-37 overall. The Smokies answered a leadoff home run by Chattanooga’s Trayvon Robinson in the first with

a run of their own in the bottom of the first. Tony Campana’s third triple of the year was followed by an RBI double by Brett Jackson, tying the game at one. Tennessee jumped all over Chattanooga starter Mario Alvarez in the second to open up a 4-1 lead. Tony Thomas, Nate Samson led off the frame with consecutive hits, with ThomasscoringonSamson’s double to give the Smokies their first lead of the game. Starter Rafael Dolis helped his own cause with a double of his own, scoring Samson to put Tennessee up 3-1. Campana would cross home on a hit by pitch by Alvarez (5-5) to make it 4-1 Smokies. Alvarez would be chased in the fourth as the Smokies erupted for four runs in the frame, three of which came on a Matt Spencer home run to right to put the Smokies

up 8-1. RBI singles by Spencer and Russ Canzler in the fifth, coupled with a Robinson Chirinos sacrifice fly, offset a Chattanooga in the top of the frame and gave the Smokies an insurmountable 11-2 lead. Canzler and Chirinos would hit solo home runs in the seventh for Tennessee, while Josh Vitters joined the party with a solo shot of his own in the eighth to put the game away for Tennessee. On the night, Chirinos (3-for-3, five RBIs), Spencer (2-for-5, four RBIs) and Canzler (2-for-4, three runs scored) led the way. Campana (3-for-5, three runs scored) was a home run short of hitting for the cycle. Not to be outdone, Dolis (1-2) shined in his Smokies Park debut. The righty allowed only two runs on three hits in five innings.

ing on the ball better and I thought we caught the ball well today,” Brewer said. McCarter’s first pick came when he jumped a route in the flats and dove to intercept the pass. His second INT came on a bullet pass across the middle that he read and snatched before it reached its intended target. “He’s athletic, there’s no question,” coach Brewer said

about the young defender. “And he’s one of those young guys that’s got to be ready.” The Bears were first able to work with their skill players this Monday, and they took a trip to Dorman, S.C., where they faced a slew of Division 1 athletes. “They’ve got two receivers that have already committed to Clemson and (another team had) another receiver that has committed to Cal,” Brewer said. Behind the South Carolina teams in terms of practice

time so far this summer, the Bears struggled the first day. “You could tell we hadn’t thrown the ball around much, our timing wasn’t there,” Brewer said. But the second day the team came around. “Our timing got better and we played much better,” Brewer said. “Counting today this is probably our 13th 7-on-7 this week, so we should be seeing some improvement.” mpsports@themountainpress.com

Brewer’s key to success: ‘Take one game at a time’ By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer KNOXVILLE — Following last year’s perfect 10-0 regular season, the Sevier County High School Smoky Bears are approaching the 2010 fall campaign much the way they approach each regular-season game in the 18-year Purple-and-White career of head coach Steve Brewer. “We just literally take one game at a time,� Brewer said at Friday morning’s KFOA Media Day at Three Ridges Golf Course in Knoxville. “The secret to high school football, and any football really, is that you look at your next opponent, and as soon as that’s over — good

or bad — you forget it and go on to the next one.� The same formula holds true from season to season. “I don’t think there’s any pressure (from 10-0 last season),� said Brewer. “If you look at it as a whole, there’s pressure. But if you look at it just one game at a time, it’s different.� Despite the perfect 2009 regular season, the Bears’ season came to a disappointing end with a onepoint loss to Bearden after Sevier County went for the win with a two-point conversion attempt near the end of regulation that came up one-yard short of victory. “I told our football team, ‘last year’s team, as well as they did, they still left

room for us to do things,’� said Brewer. “So we not only need to get back to the playoffs, we need to advance in the playoffs.� Brewer said he’s not discounting last year’s accomplishments, he’s just not reveling in the past. “It was a special season, no doubt,� said Brewer. “We’ll miss those guys, and they meant a lot to our program. “But this is a new group. I think they’ve been given a great example to follow. They learned from those guys last year, and that was a group that did not like to lose. They set a good example, and I hope we’ll follow that part of it.� chitchcock@themountainpress.com

Though their numbers are down, TKA expects to win Lions only have 20 returning players By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer KNOXVILLE — The King’s Academy Lions football squad has set a school standard with three-consecutive winning seasons, and despite a drop of about 10 players at the varsity level, the Purple and Gold expect nothing less from themselves than another victorious campaign in 2010. “I think the guys have tasted a little taste of victory,� said 14th-year TKA coach Larry Watson. “They’ve gotten on board with a vision of what we

can accomplish.� Despite losing several key players to graduation, including David Kirkpatrick, Jon Rose, Dane Hoffmeister and William Lakatosh, the Lions hope to overcome with the heart of the returning squad combined with the efforts of the younger rising players. “We have a lot of inexperienced players right now, and we potentially have some freshmen that will start,� said Watson. “We’ve only got about 20 players right now, but I think with what we’ve got coming back, we’ll be hard to defend. “I think we’re pretty solid.

season, but I think we’re capable of winning all of our ball games. “The players will attest to that, and we’re all in agreement.� In order to achieve that expected success, the Lions will depend on their usual formula of tough defense, a heavy dose of the ground game and a developing passing attack that will primarily utilize the backs out of the backfield. TKA will continue to grow in its aerial game today, when the Lions travel to Maryville College for some 7-on-7 passing league action at a 40-plus team event.

BRITISH OPEN GOLF

Fierce wind makes for brutal day at St. Andrews By PAUL NEWBERRY AP National Writer ST. ANDREWS, Scotland — Fierce wind wreaked more havoc than any player Friday at the British Open, even causing a rare weather delay. South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen surged to a fivestroke lead in the morning, then watched from the comfort of his hotel as first-round leader Rory McIlroy and plenty of others stumbled in the blustery conditions. The flags flapped wildly, caps blew down the fairways and there were 80s all over the scoreboard, including one by McIlroy’s name. The 21-year-old hotshot from Northern Ireland went from the lowest score ever in a major championship to an 8-over 80. No other player has ever taken a bigger tumble after shooting 63 in one of golf’s biggest events. It left him with an 11-shot deficit heading to the weekend. Despite sunny skies mixed with puffy white clouds, officials decided the Old Course was unplayable because the wind was gusting to 41 mph, causing balls to wobble on some of the exposed greens, especially those along St. Andrews Bay. Second-round play was suspended 1 hour, 5 minutes at midafternoon, shortly after Phil Mickelson finished his round in brutally tough conditions and Tiger Woods had teed off. The last 10 groups failed to finish, meaning 30 players — including England’s Steven Tiley, tied for third at 6 under — will have to come back at 6:30 a.m. local

Alastair Grant/AP

South Africa’s Louis Oosthuizen plays a shot from the 14th tee during the second round of the British Open Golf Championship on the Old Course at St. Andrews, Scotland, Friday, July 16. time Saturday to finish their rounds. The last wind delay at the British Open was at Royal Birkdale in 1998, when gusts reached 40 mph, forcing a 38-minute stoppage during the second round. No one seemed more hurt by it than McIlroy, who had parred the first three holes. After the delay, he bogeyed No. 4 — and three of the next four holes, as well. “It was just very, very difficult out there,” McIlroy said. “I just let it get away from me a little bit.” During the break, players returned to their lounge near the first tee to wait for conditions to calm. Caddies

sprawled on a grassy knoll, munching on sandwiches and bananas. Some fans claimed a patch of ground and caught a nap. Oosthuizen (WUHST’hy-zen), a 27-year-old from Mossel Bay whose given name is Lodewicus Theodorus, shot a 5-under 67 for a 12-under 132 at the midway point of the tournament. He was done before McIlroy teed off, hoping to put up another solid round after tying the major-championship record with a 63 on Thursday. Not in these conditions. Mark Calcavecchia, trying to strike another blow for the senior circuit, was closest to

“When I first played here, I didn’t like it,” Watson said. “But I learned to like it and, eventually, to love it.” The weather made it a typical British Open rollercoaster of a day. The early starters found blue skies when they arrived, but heavy rains rolled in shortly after the start of the round. The sun peeked through the clouds again, then more showers struck just before noon. “I got up this morning and it wasn’t looking real pretty at 4:30,” said Calcavecchia, who played in the first group. “It was actually beautiful when we teed off. Then we saw a little bit of everything.” Oosthuizen wasn’t worried about any of that, and he was already done when the wind started to blow around lunchtime. “I’m very confident with the way I’m playing,” he said. “It’s probably the position anyone wants to be in playing a major on the weekend, and I think it’s what we work to achieve, and I’m just very happy with the two rounds I put together.” There was nothing to indicate he might contend at golf’s oldest major championship. He missed the cut this year at the Masters and the U.S. Open, and did the same at last week’s Scottish Open. This is only the second time he’ll make the cut in nine major appearances. The other time, at the 2008 PGA Championship at Oakland Hills, he finished last among those playing on the weekend. But he did claim his first win on the European

Oosthuizen among those in the clubhouse. The 50-yearold American shot a 67 that left him at 137, with Lee Westwood and Paul Casey another shot behind. Woods held on in wind that was gusting more than 30 mph even after play resumed. He bogeyed the first two holes, but a fortunate break at the par-5 fifth helped him pick up his first birdie of the day. His second shot was sailing right, toward the treacherous rough, but the ball struck a golf cart loaded with television equipment and stopped in the short grass. Woods was able to get up and down from there, leaving him 4 under for the tournament as he approached the midway point of his round. Woods nearly finished with a flourish, driving the green — the ball skidding about a foot wide of the flag — on the par-4 18th hole. He missed the 20-footer for eagle but tapped in for birdie at a 73 that kept him in contention for the weekend, though eight strokes behind Oosthuizen. “I’m not exactly where I want to be,” Woods said. “I’m not at 12-under par.” Woods is trying to win his third straight Open at St. Andrews, having romped to victories in 2000 and 2005. Before he putted out, Tom Watson made what was likely his final walk over Swilcan Bridge. The 60-year-old who nearly won last year at Turnberry was likely to miss the cut after shooting 75, but he paused to kiss the famous stone walkway and posed atop it long enough for everyone to get a picture.

Tour this year, earning a spot at Augusta National. With the wind at his back, Oosthuizen went with shorter clubs off the tee to keep the dreaded pot bunkers out of play. He got a bit wild on the back nine, starting out birdie-bogey-birdie-bogeybirdie before he settled down with a couple of pars and a 15-foot birdie at the final hole to leave him with a good feeling going to a weekend that will be like none he’s ever experienced before. Oosthuizen strung together three birdies in a row beginning at the par-5 fifth, where a driver and a 4-iron left him with a chip that he left 5 feet from the flag. Maybe if he’s walking up the 18th fairway with the claret jug in his grasp come Sunday, someone will break out the vuvuzelas, those South African horns that made the World Cup sound as though it was under attack from swarming bees. Until then, he said, leave ’em at home. “On the golf course? No, not on the golf course,” Oosthuizen said. Westwood gave no indication that he’s bothered by a ruptured muscle in his right calf. The world’s No. 3 player, generally recognized as the best player without a major title, followed an opening 67 with a solid 71. Casey managed a 69 despite a triple-bogey at No. 17, the famed “Road Hole.” A drive into the thick rough left of the fairway led to big trouble; even aiming sideways, he needed two whacks to get out, then he came up short on the approach and two putted for a 7.

16-year-old struggles with feelings for parents who’ve never been there for her

Zits

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: I am 16 years old. Right now, I am living with my aunt (my father’s sister). My mother and father have never really been in my life, although I did live briefly with my mom. My father is in jail for manslaughter and will be out in two years. He and my mother have been writing each other and have developed a close relationship. Recently, my father proposed, and Mom accepted. She asked me how I felt about it, and I didn’t say anything. Annie, I don’t know how I feel about it. I’m angry with my parents for not being in my life when I needed them, and now they decide to get married when it no longer matters to my welfare. Please tell me what to do and say to my mother. How can I get rid of the resentment so I can be happy for them? -- Left Out Daughter Dear Left Out: You sound wise beyond your years. You understand the importance of putting aside your anger and resentment, not only for your parents’ sake, but for your own. Try to forgive them for not being the parents you deserved and should have grown up with. If you can accept them as they are, warts and all, it will help you feel less cheated. After all, you seem to have turned out OK in spite of their shortcomings. It might help to talk about this with an unbiased third party -- a school or camp counselor, favorite teacher, friend, adult neighbor or clergyperson. Dear Annie: My husband and I recently had to move in with my mother, and I discovered she does something really disturbing. Mom does

not think it is necessary to wash her hands after using the bathroom. She will go right into the kitchen and start cooking. Occasionally, she will rinse them at the kitchen sink, using only cold water. She told me that cold water kills germs. Am I being overly concerned? I am always the one who catches every virus and infection that comes to town. How can I convince her that this is not healthy? She likes your column, so maybe reading this will help. -Cringing Violet Dear Violet: We hope so. Your mother is misinformed. Washing your hands with soap and water is the best way to prevent infection and illness. Rinsing her hands under cold water does nothing. Here are some guidelines from the Mayo Clinic: Always wash your hands AFTER using the toilet, changing a diaper, preparing food (especially raw meat or poultry), touching an animal, blowing your nose, coughing or sneezing, treating wounds, touching a sick or injured person, or handling garbage or anything that could be contaminated. You also should be sure to wash your hands BEFORE preparing food, eating, treating wounds or giving medicine, touching a sick or injured person, and inserting or removing contact lenses. If Mom doesn’t like to use soap, perhaps she

would be willing to try an alcohol-based hand sanitizer that doesn’t require water. (Please, Mom, do this to keep your family healthy.) Dear Annie: Like “Help,” I, too, have a husband who refuses to close things. He leaves the house and car doors wide open, and often, I find the refrigerator and freezer doors left ajar. Any bottle or package sits without the top on. Bagged lettuce spills all over the fridge, pills scatter all over the vanity, and more shampoo has fallen down the drain than you can imagine. He also refuses to hang up his clothes. Instead, his shirts are stuffed on shelves, and his pants hang on decorative hooks. It doesn’t matter if it costs him money, injures him or forces him to clean up spills. My pleas fall on deaf ears, and if I say too much, he accuses me of being overly critical. I am open to all suggestions. -- The Closer Dear Closer: Leaving the car and house doors open is an extreme version of this problem. Suggest that your husband see his doctor.

BP, scientists try to make sense of well puzzle By VICKI SMITH Associated Press Writer NEW ORLEANS — In a nail-biting day across the Gulf Coast, engineers struggled to make sense of puzzling pressure readings from the bottom of the sea Friday to determine whether BP’s capped oil well was holding tight. Halfway through a critical 48-hour window, the signs were promising but far from conclusive. Kent Wells, a BP PLC vice president, said on an evening conference call that engineers had found no indication that the well has started leaking underground. “No news is good news, I guess that’s how I’d say it,” Wells said. Engineers are keeping watch over the well for a two-day period in a scientific, round-the-clock vigil to see if the well’s temporary cap is strong enough to hold back the oil, or if there are leaks either in the well itself or the sea floor. One mysterious development was that the pressure readings were not rising as high as expected, said retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, the government’s point man on the crisis. Allen said two possible reasons were being debated by scientists: The reservoir that is the source of the oil could be running lower three months into the spill. Or there could be an undiscovered leak somewhere down in the well. Allen ordered further study but remained confident. “This is generally good news,” he said. But he cautioned, “We need to be careful not to do any harm or create a situation that cannot be reversed.” He said the testing would go on into the night, at which point BP may decide whether to reopen the cap and allow some oil to spill into the sea again.

Associated Press

Drilling rigs and workboats operate at the site of the Deepwater Horizon incident in the Gulf of Mexico on Friday. Throughout the day, no one was declaring victory — or failure. President Barack Obama cautioned the public “not to get too far ahead of ourselves,” warning of the danger of new leaks “that could be even more catastrophic.” Even if the cap passes the test, more uncertainties lie ahead: Where will the oil already spilled go? How long will it take to clean up the coast? What will happen to the region’s fishermen? And will life on the Gulf Coast ever be the same again? “I’m happy the well is shut off, that there’s a light at the end of the tunnel,” said Tony Kennon, mayor of hard-hit Orange Beach, Ala. But “I’m watching people moving away, people losing their jobs, everything they’ve got. How can I be that happy when that’s happening to my neighbor?” On Thursday, BP closed the vents on the new, tight-

fitting cap and finally stopped crude from spewing into the Gulf of Mexico for the first time since the April 20 oil-rig explosion that killed 11 workers and unleashed the spill 5,000 feet down. With the cap working like a giant cork to keep the oil inside the well, scientists kept watch on screens at sea and at BP’s Houston headquarters, in case the buildup of pressure underground caused new leaks in the well pipe and in the surrounding bedrock that could make the disaster even worse. Pressure readings after 24 hours were about 6,700 pounds per square inch and rising slowly, Allen said, below the 7,500 psi that would clearly show the well was not leaking. He said pressure continued to rise between 2 and 10 psi per hour. A low pressure reading, or a falling one, could mean the oil is escaping. But Allen he said a seismic

bad.” The cap is designed to prevent oil from spilling into the Gulf, either by keeping it bottled up in the well, or by capturing it and piping it to ships on the surface. It is not yet clear which way the cap will be used if it passes the pressure test. Either way, the cap is a temporary measure until a relief well can be completed and mud and cement can be pumped into the broken well deep underground to seal it more securely than the cap. The first of the two relief wells being drilled could be done by late July or August. In a positive sign, work on the relief wells resumed Friday. The project had been suspended earlier this week for fear that the capping of the well could interfere with it. There was no end in sight to the cleanup in the water and on shore. Somewhere between 94 million and 184 million gallons have spilled

probe of the surrounding sea floor found no sign of a leak in the ground. Benton F. Baugh, president of Radoil Inc. in Houston and a National Academy of Engineering member who specializes in underwater oil operations, warned that the pressure readings could mean that an underground blowout could occur. He said the oil coming up the well may be leaking out underground and entering a geological pocket that might not be able to hold it. But Roger N. Anderson, a professor of marine geology and geophysics at Columbia University, said the oil pressure might be rising slowly not because of a leak, but because of some kind of blockage in the well. “If it’s rising slowly, that means the pipe’s integrity’s still there. It’s just getting around obstacles,” he said. He added that “any increase in pressure is good, not

into the Gulf, according to government estimates. In Orange Beach, Ala., long strands of white absorbent boom strung along the shore were stained chocolate brown after a fresh wave of BB-size tar balls washed up. Charter boat captains who can’t fish because of the spill patrolled the shore, looking for oil slicks. Fishing guides spent their time ferrying Coast Guard personnel. A flotilla of fishing boats operating as skimmers plied the waters across the Gulf. Large sections of the Gulf Coast have been closed to fishing and shellfish harvesting. Many fishermen have been hired out by BP to do cleanup work. Cade Thomas, a 38-yearold fishing guide from Pine, La., said the whole mentality of the place is different. “It’s all changed dramatically. The fishing stories aren’t there,” he said. “There’s no stories to tell except where we went to today and how much oil we saw.” In Grand Isle, La., most of the summer rental cottages are vacant, tables at the single high-end seafood restaurant are empty, and souvenir shops are barely doing enough business to pay the bills. A handpainted sign along the main road rechristens the tourist town “Grand Oil.” Folks are grateful the gusher has been stopped, but many say it is too late to save this summer. Thousands of tourists have gone elsewhere. Scientists cannot say for certain what the long-term environmental effect will be. But long after the well is finally plugged, oil could still be washing up in marshes and on beaches as tar balls or patties. There is also fear that months from now, those tar balls could move west to Corpus Christi, Texas, or travel up and around Florida to Miami or North Carolina’s Outer Banks.
