National park sees June boon

NATIONAL PARK — Visitors to Great Smoky Mountains National Park in June jumped 15 percent over the same period last year, park spokesman Bob Miller said Monday, but there is something skewed about the numbers.

Sports, Page A8

Year-to-date entries are now up by 3.3 percent through June. “The large increase was driven primarily by a 46.6 percent jump in June entries at the 13 outlying entrances,” Miller said. Gatlinburg was up 4.9 percent and Townsend 4.5 percent, but Cherokee was down by 3.6 percent. So where did people enter the park in big numbers? Try Cherokee Orchard Road outside Gatlinburg. At least if you can believe the numbers, and

on that count Miller isn’t so sure. According to Miller, the jump in park visitation at the 13 entrances was driven by a 1,100 percent increase at the Cherokee Orchard Road counter just outside of Gatlinburg. He questions that figure. “That road and the connecting Roaring Fork Motor Nature Trail were under construction, and I suspect the counter may have been damaged and that big influx may be an error — or it may be working and it could be

just a lot of loads of asphalt and building materials that added up,” he said. “Either way the 15 percent jump does not indicate that we saw a double-digit jump in the actual park recreational visitor count.” Even so, Miller does feel there were more visitors to the park in June than there were a year ago. Since two of the three main entrances saw a positive trend upward, he said, “we certainly had some growth, albeit only 3-4 percent,” he said.

Clarification Saturday’s story about two men charged with attempted felony theft contained an error. Sheriff Ron Seals did not say Korey and Keith Brandenburg were charged with breaking into rental cabins. He said their indictments stemmed from an ongoing investigation into the burglary of rental cabins and the thefts of flat screen televisions. The Mountain Press is glad to set the record straight.

Lumberjack Sports International CEO Rob Scheer, pictured, plans to build an attraction in Pigeon Forge called Great Smoky Mountain Lumberjack Feud.

Friendly ‘food fight’ develops on Saturdays at Sevier Farmers Co-op By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — The suggestion that the folks behind the loaded tables are “getting fresh” with their customers is a high compliment when it comes to the little market that springs up on Saturday mornings throughout the summer at the Sevier Farmers Co-op. The gathering draws a small crowd of growers, proudly offering the products of months of labor at pennies a pound, and a steady stream of people, both locals and travelers, looking for some of the freshest produce available anywhere. “This stuff was just on the vine yesterday,” Donna Williams said as she pointed to a basket full of tomatoes, the famous type of Grainger County lineage. “I’ve lived in Grainger County all my live. My whole family has grown these tomatoes and now my husband does it. There’s just something about them that makes them different. There’s something special about the taste.” With the same seeds, water and weather as

a farmer could find in any other part of East Tennessee, Williams isn’t sure what makes the difference. She just knows it’s there. Across the parking lot populated by temporary canopies, it would be charitable to say Candace DeLozier sees nothing so remarkable about the ruby fruits of Grainger. She’ll take the Sevier County variety grown in her own fiveacre garden, thank you very much. “We’ve had a good year with them,” she said as she waved her hand over her own baskets of maters, which she grows in cherry, roma and several other varieties. “Everything’s coming in really good. I’ve been doing the garden since I was little. I love doing it. It’s a great job. I like it because I can make my own schedule, I get a tan and look good, and I’m active.” Of course, raising your own produce isn’t always a peachy — yep, those are available at the market, too — proposition. “Don’t get me wrong, it’s hard work,” DeLozier said as she wiped away sweat on a See co-op, Page A4

PIGEON FORGE — Break out your red and black plaid flannels and your suspenders: The newest attraction coming to Pigeon Forge is touted to give a “full immersion” in the logging culture that once dominated the Smoky Mountains. The developers hope to open the multimillion dollar Great Smoky Mountain Lumberjack Feud by June 1 on a parcel that stretches from the Parkway to the Little Pigeon River and say they have plans to film competitions. What Rob Scheer, who is leading the development, is proposing is something of a cross between a stage show, a hands-on activity center and a cultural exhibit focusing on those somewhat legendary creatures, lumberjacks. He’s already built one such attraction in Ketchikan, Alaska, into the second most-visited site in the state and one that has been recommended by the Travel Channel as a “must see.” That success is likely attributable to the fact Scheer has the type of specialized experience and connections that it would take to run such a unique attraction. He won the title of world champion speed climber, an event that sends participants up See lumberjack, Page A4

Foundation releases rehabilitated eaglet Submitted Report BRISTOL — The American Eagle Foundation at Dollywood recently released a rehabilitated immature bald eaglet on South Holston Lake near Bristol. The eaglet had been found by 17-year-old Joe Slagle near the South Holston dam tangled in fishing line and with a hook in its wing. It had first been transported by Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency officer Jeff Brater to the University of Tennessee Veterinary College in Knoxville and then later transferred to the American Eagle Foundation at Dollywood for further care and rehabilitation, where it had been in a flight enclosure for several months. The fishing line had caused lacerations and folicle damage in the area of the bird’s primary (wing tip) feathers Slagle, whose parents own Lake View Dock near Laurel Marina in Bristol, had spotted the eaglet tangled in a limb line used for catching catfish. He reported that the bird had a dead bluegill in its talons that was hooked to the fishing line, and also that the young bird was pretty hungry and fairly motionless when he found it. After the young man had caught the eaglet up, he placed it in a Rubbermaid container and immediately called TWRA. Foundation founder and president Al Cecere released the eaglet back to the wild close to where it had been found. Slagle, TWRA officers Bryan Kegley and David Carpenter, and foundation staff members Kellie Morrison and Tanya Rentz were present to witness the birds’ flight to freedom. Submitted

Martin Mallette of Sevier County with some of the children he serves in Romania as part of a Christian mission effort.

Local man takes Gospel to Romania Editor’s note: Martin Mallette of Sevier County has been in Romania for 19 years as a Christian missionary. He sent along this report, which has been shortened for length: I was blessed when The Lord called me to Romania on Jan. 18, 1991, to preach the Gospel of Jesus Christ and plant New Testament Bible churches there. Just like the first Bible church I planted was in Sighisoara — Dracula’s place. Every time we go into an area and evangelize it, everything changes in the whole community. I can take you to different Gypsy towns and villages where The Word of God is preached, then people get saved. After a church is borne, the mayors tell me the same thing: “Mr. Martin, that Evangelical Bible church has cleaned the whole town up. Drunk men, criminals, that used to steal, kill, rob, beat their wives. But now they have completely changed, like new people.� That is the Power of the Gospel. Why don’t we here in the U.S. do this on the borders of Mexico. We don’t need thousands of new police. We need the Gospel. People that get born again stop using and selling drugs, and they stop killing too. I read in The Mountain Press about Ron Herrod, who has been elected to a key Southern Baptist leadership position. One time, Dr. Herrod stayed with me in Bucuresti, Romania. He came in the middle of winter, and that is a no no. Dr. Herrod told me that Bucuresti was the coldest place on Earth. My wife Daniela, son Elijah and I now live in Bucharest, the capital, where the population is about 3 million people. I

have just started a Bible school to teach and train the workers and Bible students there. Most of these are from the churches that I work with all over the country. Romanian Orthodox is the state religion there, and they are much like the Roman Catholics in many ways. I think that there is to much Gospel around the Great Smoky Mountains, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg for Dracula to feel comfortable here, but there are many tourists and Sevier County residents that need to be born again. Will you win them to the Lord? This part of the U.S. has some of the most beautiful attractions in the world, but its real beauty resides in its hometown people, especially God’s people. They are the ones that have kept this Sevier County blessed. I also come back to the Smokies once a year. I don’t consider myself a “turron� (a name given) to all the tourists that cause all the traffic jams on the streets. My family roots start here: Martin and Philip Shultz, doctors that settled here many years ago from Germany. I can trace my immediate family back to Elkmont. Back in the 1900s there were little groups of people in those mountains, with names like Whaley, Brackins, Ogle, Maples, Shultz. You will even find the name Parton, and Parton’s Store in Elkmont. On May the 2, 1950, Alice (Ogle) Shultz walk

across the mountain to the cabin of Daniel and Rebecca Ogle in Sugarland. Their cabin home was located right across the street from the Sugarlands Welcome Center. My grandmother, Alice Ogle, married James Shultz at Roaring Fork Baptist Church in Gatlinburg in the 1930s. My first-cousin Eddie Shultz works at the Galtinburg Community Center. I want to thank the wonderful people of Sevier County for making my trip so good. First I want to thank Brenda Karr, the branch manager at SunTrust in Pigeon Forge, and Robin Patrick for their kindness and service, and for making it possible for me to draw money out at the ATM machine in Bucharest on my debit card. My heart is so grateful to Volunteer Chevrolet and Frank Bohanon and Gary Helton, for your gift of the loaner car. Thank you, Pastor Kim McCroskey and your congregation at Roaring Fork, for your love gift and for letting me sing, preach and share the Romania mission with you. Thank you, Pastor Mitch Ayers and Carter Town Baptist Church in Gatlinburg, for your visit to Romania with some from your church mission team. God bless you, Pastor Ronnie Reagan and Gum Stand Baptist Church in Pigeon Forge. I think your dear wife Sandy. Thank you, Brother Tom

We love it.� The couple — it’s Donna and husband Tim, who is the farmer in the family and grows dairy cows along with the produce — bring their own offerings and the fruits of the field from a fellow resident of Grainger.

Smokies until tragedy strikes and a wedge is driven between them. The climax of the show will be a contest between the two sides to determine who gets to stay on in the mountains and who must leave. Contacted Monday, Scheer said the attraction won’t be unlike the popular Dixie Stampede in that it will feature families driven apart by tragedy and a liveaction competition that will likely have different results each day. The show in Ketchikan regularly sells out months in advance, he said. With the help of Knoxville-based Realtor Keith Widmer, Scheer recently purchased a total of 4.3 acres for $2.5 million, with about a half acre of frontage on the Parkway between Citizens National Bank and the Michaels souvenir and clothing shop. The rest of the land runs from Smoky Drive to the Little Pigeon River, with the yet-unfinished Belle Island Village in the water directly across from there. “We’re hopeful Belle Island will get started back up,� Widmer said Monday. “We think that

area will be a really exciting, new epicenter for the city of Pigeon Forge.� Scheer paid previous owner Kenneth Seaton $2.5 million for the lots, on which he plans to build a 30,000-squarefoot attraction. That will include a 25,000-squarefoot arena for the show, and an additional 5,000 feet for offices, ticket sales, a lobby and possibly the lumberjack hall of fame, something Scheer says he’s in talk to develop. He also hopes to construct an outdoor pool where visitors can try their hand at log rolling, a competition in which two people stand on a floating piece of wood and roll it until one falls off, against professionals and children will have the opportunity to go to camps to learn the skill. The construction as a whole will likely run up a tab of about $4 million or $5 million, Scheer said. He plans to open an office at the site to oversee the project in the next couple months. “We’re very happy with our site and we’re looking forward to breaking ground very soon,� he said. “This is a perfect location for us because

Chapter 7 ,

we have space on the Parkway and we’re also on the river, which is good because rivers played a very important role in the logging industry.� Scheer said he started looking at buying into the area more than two decades ago, with discussions on a site then falling through. Though he since developed the two other attractions up north, he said he never gave up on building in Pigeon Forge, believing the area’s high tourist volume and history with logging will help make his venture successful. “We’re really looking forward to being there,� he said. “We’ve had plans to be in that area for so long that it’s almost hard to believe it’s actually happening now.� For more information about the Ketchikan show or Scheer’s Lumberjack Sports International, visit the Web site www.lumberjacksports.com. n dhodges@themountainpress.com

Bill Clinton, Gates: Fight AIDS more efficiently By VERONIKA OLEKSYN Associated Press Writer VIENNA — Two heavyhitters on the world health stage — Bill Clinton and Bill Gates — called Monday for a more efficient fight worldwide against the AIDS virus. In separate speeches at an international AIDS conference in the Austrian capital, the former American president railed against spending too much money on reports that just sit on shelves and urged that funds directly target AIDS sufferers. Gates, the founder of Microsoft Corp., said health groups must adopt better business practices that deliver more bang for the buck. Clinton said many countries are misspending foreign aid. He said funding should go directly to local organizations, because developing countries can deliver health services at a lower cost and less overhead than established organizations. “In too many countries too much money goes to pay for too many people to go to too many meetings, get on too many airplanes,� Clinton said. “Keep in mind that every dollar we waste today puts a life at risk.� The number of people taking crucial AIDS drugs climbed by a record 1.2 million last year to 5.2 million overall, the World Health Organization said Monday. Between 2003 and 2010, the number of patients receiving lifesaving antiretroviral treatment increased twelve-fold, according to the Genevabased body. “We are very encouraged by this increase. It is

Bill Gates speaks during a session at the International AIDS Conference Austria, on Monday. indeed the biggest increase that we have seen in any single year,� said Gottfried Hirnschall, director of the WHO’s HIV/AIDS department. Clinton also called on aid groups to remember that the world was “awash in trouble� due to the impact of the financial crisis. “It is easy to rail at a government and say why doesn’t the government give us more money if they’re giving somebody else money,� he said. “But the government gets its money ... from taxpayers who have lower incomes today than they did two years ago.� Gates said although finding new funding was critical, more could be done with the resources that were

Study: Poverty, more than race, link to HIV ATLANTA (AP) — Poverty is perhaps the most important factor in whether inner-city heterosexuals are infected with the AIDS virus, according to the first government study of its kind. The study, released Monday, suggests that HIV is epidemic in certain poverty-stricken urban neighborhoods. And, more significantly, poor heterosexuals in those neighborhoods were twice as likely to be infected as heterosexuals who lived in the same community but had more money. Federal scientists found that race was not a factor — there were no significant differences between blacks, whites or Hispanics. Health officials have long believed poverty drives HIV epidemics, but there have been few studies to back that up. Some research actually contradicts that belief: Studies in Tanzania, Kenya and some other African countries actually found that wealthy people were more likely to be infected than the poor. “In the United States, we haven’t have a history of looking in depth at the association between poverty and HIV,� said Dr. Jonathan Mermin, director of HIV/AIDS Prevention for the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. Mermin oversees the CDC team that did the new study. More often, studies have focused on the race of HIV patients, their sexual orientation, or whether or not they use intravenous drugs. The CDC report was released at the international AIDS conference in Vienna. The study involved a survey in 2006 and 2007 of 9,000 heterosexual adults, ages 18 to 50. They answered questions on a computer about their income, condom use and other details and were given HIV tests. The research was done

in high-poverty neighborhoods in 23 U.S. cities. It focused on heterosexuals who don’t use intravenous drugs; that group accounts for about 28 percent of Americans living with HIV. It did not involve gay or bisexual men, who have the highest rates of HIV in the United States. The results: HIV was detected in 2.4 percent of the people who were living below the federal poverty line, which in 2007 was an annual income of roughly $10,000 or less for an individual. The 2.4 percent translates to roughly 1 in 42 people. In contrast, infections were found in 1.2 percent of people in the same neighborhoods who made more money than the federal poverty guideline. That’s 1 in 83 people. Both rates were higher than the national average, which is 0.45 percent, or 1 in 222 people. The results suggest that people in low-income neighborhoods are more likely to be infected because they live among more people who are infected. Perhaps more people in such neighborhoods have used illegal drugs or had other experiences that put them at higher risk, Mermin

said. “It’s epidemiological bad luck,� he said. He described the situation: “I’m in a community where when I meet a new (sexual) partner, the chance that they would have HIV is much higher than if I were wealthy and living in another geographical area.� Officials need to start looking at the AIDS epidemic in a different light, said Dr. Carlos del Rio, who chairs global health studies at Emory University’s school of public health. “You talk about ’Can we decrease the HIV burden in the United States?’ I would say, ’What can we do to decrease poverty in the United States?�’ del Rio said. He noted there are diseases that are more prevalent in certain racial groups, for genetic reasons. Sickle cell disease, which is most prevalent in blacks, is one example. But there’s no clear biological reason why the infection rate is eight times higher in blacks than whites, and three times higher in Hispanics than whites. But understanding that blacks are disproportionately poor probably does explain why the rates are higher,

del Rio said. He was an author of a smaller, recent study that found that 60 percent of Atlanta’s HIV cases were located in a downtown area of the city with high proportions of blacks, IV drug users and people living in poverty. An estimated 1 in 272 Americans is infected with HIV, according to 2006 estimates. In other terms, more than 1.1 million Americans are living with the AIDS virus. The number has grown since 2006, CDC officials believe. Officials believe the annual number of new HIV infections has been hovering around 55,000 a year since the late 1990s.

already available. The Global Fund to Fight HIV, Tuberculosis and Malaria, one of the biggest funders of AIDS programs, has in the past found evidence of fraud in countries’ health programs — like Uganda and Zambia — and suspended their programs or tried to get the money back. “Even if we advocate for more funding, we can do more to get the most benefit from each dollar,� Gates told delegates. “If we push for a new focus on efficiency in both treatment and prevention and we continue ... to create new tools, we can drive down the number of infections dramatically and start writing the story of the end of AIDS.� Some countries — such as Russia — are not using data to make funding decisions that target the right populations because those groups make politicians uncomfortable, Gates added. “If you’re afraid to match your prevention efforts to the right populations, then you’re wasting money and that costs lives,� he said. Clinton said in order to have the “moral standing� to ask for more funding, organizations should prove to governments that “we’re doing our job faster, better and cheaper.� He also defended President Barack Obama’s efforts on AIDS. “You can demonstrate and call the president names or we can go get some more votes in Congress to get some more money,� Clinton said. “My experience is that the second choice is the better one.� On Sunday, the head of the conference said world leaders lack the political will to ensure that everyone infected with HIV and AIDS gets treatment.

Knoxville murderer gets execution date

The state Supreme Court has set a Dec. 7 execution date for Billy Ray Irick. Irick was convicted of raping and killing a 7-year-old Knoxville girl he had been baby-sitting in 1985. The court rejected an appeal from Irick’s attorneys to issue a certificate of commutation. They had argued he was insane at the time of the crime. In support, they introduced affidavits from the victim’s stepfamily recounting Irick’s bizarre behavior in the days before the slaying. That includes Irick chasing a girl he did not know down the street with a machete because he “didn’t like her looks” and telling people he was “taking instructions from the devil.” While setting an execution date, the court also ordered a hearing in the Knox County Criminal Court to determine whether Irick is competent to be executed. Those proceedings must conclude within 55 days. n

Oak Ridge Police say a man who officers fatally shot as he wielded a knife at them had earlier driven into a lake, but was rescued. The Oak Ridger identified the man as 48-year-old Rodney Eugene Harris of Oak Ridge. Police Chief David H. Beams said officers were investigating a man walking in a road, waving his arms Sunday afternoon when the man pulled a knife from a scarf around his leg and came at officers after stabbing a police dog. Beams said a Taser didn’t stop the man and officers shot him. The newspaper reported Harris drove his truck into Melton Hill Lake in January, but was rescued by bystanders.

Monroe official found dead in burning car By BILL POOVEY Associated Press Writer MADISONVILLE — Friends of the Monroe County election official whose body was discovered in the trunk of a burning car described him as a generous man loved by everyone who knew him. County Election Administrator James R. Brown said the body of Jim Miller was discovered by firefighters after they extinguished a burning car Saturday night. Sheriff’s officials in Madisonville declined to

offer details on the investigation. They are awaiting preliminary autopsy results. An incident report from the sheriff’s office said an officer on patrol spotted the burning car on a rural road just after 8:00 p.m. and called firefighters. Karen Thomas, a school teacher who was at a Republican Party tent across the street from an early voting precinct in Madisonville, said Miller liked helping kids. “Every year at Christmas he would always check to see if any child needed anything.

Betty Latham, chairwoman of the Monroe County Republican Party, was also at the early voting tent. “He was a friend to everybody in this county,” she said. “He was like the father of the county.” Next door neighbor Leslie Johnson said he would pay bills for local residents struggling. “It’s just senseless,” she said of his death. Miller, a Republican, became chairman of the local election commission in April 2009.

commentary

New voices in defense of marriage

President Obama’s Justice Department colluded with gay marriage advocates to make sure the 1996 Defense of Marriage Act was overturned by the courts. That’s not just my view — it’s pretty close to the searing conclusion drawn by professor Richard Epstein in a piece for Forbes: “This controversial case might well go up on appeal. But if so, it looks almost like collusive litigation, unless some true defender of DOMA is allowed, as an intervener, to defend the statute on the merits.” Epstein is referring to recent twin rulings by U.S. District Court Judge Joseph Tauro that strike down key portions of DOMA. “As a supporter of gay marriage, I still think that the DOJ’s faint-hearted advocacy is no way to run a legal system,” Epstein continures.” Nor is it wise for courts to use the equal protection clause as a club against conventional morality, deeply felt.” Richard Epstein, a brilliant libertarian constitutional law scholar, opposes DOMA as policy, not only because it prevents the federal recognition of gay marriages but because it excludes polygamous marriages, as well. But he is nonetheless standing up for core principles. Just because you favor gay marriage doesn’t make it a constitutional right. Take that, Ted Olsen! Jonathan Rauch, who makes the best conservative case for gay marriage possible, is a gay man, the author of “Gay Marriage: Why It Is Good for Gays, Good for Straights and Good for America,” and another man of great principle. In The New York Times he called on Supreme Court nominee Elena Kagan and the other Supreme Court justices to uphold Proposition 8. “The argument for upholding California’s gay marriage ban has merit — not because the policy is fair or wise (it isn’t), but because it represents a reasonable judgment that the people of California are entitled to make.” He goes on to say: “Whatever the activists on both sides say, nothing in the Constitution requires the Supreme Court to short-circuit the country’s search for a new consensus, either by imposing gay marriage nationwide or by slamming the door on it with an aggressively dismissive ruling. Sometimes the right answer for the courts is to step aside and let politics do its job.” Slowly new voices are emerging in defense of our constitutional system of government. In the Daily Caller, my colleague Brian Brown (president of the National Organization for Marriage) points to the same underhanded collusion to which Richard Epstein alludes. “But if there is any excuse for Judge Tauro’s ruling, it lies in this fact: No one in that courtroom in front of him tried to defend the law. President Obama’s Justice Department (with Elena Kagan’s participation as solicitor general) pretended to defend DOMA, while actually sabotaging the law and ensuring its overthrow by the courts.” How did President Obama’s Justice Department, with Elena Kagan as solicitor general, sabotage DOMA? As Brian Brown says, “Let me count the ways.” First there is the strange hole in Judge Tauro’s opinion. In the 19th century, the federal government intervened repeatedly to ban polygamy, and the Supreme Court upheld the federal government’s right to do so. The reason Judge Tauro doesn’t deal with these precedents is that President Obama’s brief never mentions them. But, as Brian Brown points out, “It gets worse than that.” Congress, when it passed DOMA, laid out in very clear terms that “responsible procreation” is a key reason for DOMA’s existence. As Judge Tauro’s ruling notes: “The House Report identifies four interests which Congress sought to advance through the enactment of DOMA: (1) encouraging responsible procreation and childbearing, (2) defending and nurturing the institution of traditional heterosexual marriage, (3) defending traditional notions of morality, and (4) preserving scarce resources.” But in its briefs, allegedly defending DOMA, Obama’s Justice Department explicitly repudiated “responsible procreation” as a reason for DOMA. “How can Justice’s lawyers strip a law of its clearly stated purpose?” Brown asks. “Well, the DOJ brief claims ‘expert consensus’ now exists that children don’t need moms and dads.” There you have it. As Brown writes, “Rule by out-of-touch, anonymous experts, backed by activist judges. Brought to you by President Obama.” Politics makes strange bedfellows. But principle, done right, can make even stranger ones. — Maggie Gallagher, president of the National Organization for Marriage, is known for her conservative social policy analysis of social trends and conditions.

Editorial

English speaking Pigeon Forge community giant English McCarter will be missed Behind every great and popular American city are people who were there in the early days, whose foresight and ideas were so instrumental in seeing progress made. They were there when key decisions — not always popular — had to be made. They invested time, money and research to make the right decisions. They neither sought nor received a lot of credit for what they did, at least not at the time. English McCarter was one of the pioneers in bringing Pigeon Forge from a sleepy mountain community to one of the most visited destinations in all of the country. When he and others were in positions to influence decisions and invest in the future, they did it not knowing for sure the outcome. Their ideas and ingenuity were untested, and the results of their actions would not

be known for some time. English McCarter, who died Saturday at 86, returned from World War II a young man with vision and a desire to stay in the community where he was raised. He served as police chief and volunteer fire department chief before being elected to the City Commission in 1969 — just eight years after he and others successfully supported incorporation of Pigeon Forge. He served with distinction and honor on the City Commission for the next 36 years, paving the way for the city to become a leading tourist destination, filled with theaters, attractions and roads that carry people from one destination to another. Along the way McCarter counseled others, including a younger generation he knew and understood would lead the city long after he departed

from the scene. He supported needed infrastructure improvements and road projects when they had to be built. And he did it with a dedication for and to the future, knowing that unless Pigeon Forge kept current and changed with the times, it would be left to breathe in the dust of other tourist destinations soliciting the same people. When McCarter decided not to seek re-election in 2005, ending his long career in public service, he was in his 80s, but saw the need to step aside and let others take the baton and run with it. When he died last Saturday, it marked the loss of a community giant and an important link to the city’s less hectic past. He’ll be missed, but when you drive through the city and experience its pace and focus on tourism, he should be among those thanked for it.

Political view

Public forum United States can survive only if we stay one nation under God

Editor: When I watch the news I can see why so many people are depressed and on stress medication — it seems like the country is splitting down the middle (not unlike the Civil War, only in this case the Republicans against the Democrats or visa versa depending on what side you’re on. We sure don’t need enemies when we are our own worst ones. If only we could see what we are doing when we indulge in all this infighting. When we start suing one of our own states for any reason, is that not like

shooting our self in the foot? With so many people in our country, it would be impossible to make everyone happy all the time, but surely there must be some form of middle ground that the majority of us can agree on. Our country is fast becoming a house divided against itself, and the enemy knows that to win any battles with us they must first divide and then conquer. I’m not sure who is behind it all, but our real enemy is the one out there trying to steal our souls. Believe me when I say this, he is able to work through anyone not of the Spirit. His tools are hatred, fear, selfishness, envy, anger, greed, false pride (that’s only my list; I’m sure you all could come up with

your own additions). Of course we — being so sophisticated with our college knowledge and our vast understanding of the universe — are way too intelligent to believe there could be anything beyond our knowing. Like lambs to the slaughter, we will march behind the one who speaks to our selfish wants or twisted versions of morality and we’ll use our freedom of speech to undo the freedoms that our country has bled and died for over the centuries. America, we are better than this, but only if we humble down and stay one nation under God. Sandra Burch Sevierville

Tigers’ QBs developing timing in 7-on-7 leagues By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer MARYVILLE — With the start of the 7-on-7 passing league season, the Pigeon Forge Tigers gridiron gang is using the opportunity to develop timing and hold open starting-spot competitions. With three emerging quarterbacks — Cory Fox, Shane Sharp and Caleb Black — on their roster, fourth-year Tigers coach Lee Hammonds feels there’s some reason for optimism. “Right now, Cory is our No.1 quarterback, but that doesn’t necessarily mean that come (the start of the season) he’s going to be,” said Hammonds, in between 7-on-7 contests late last week at Heritage High School. “We’re try-

ing to open up competition every single day in practice and see who is going to emerge as our starter. “Right now, Cory is a little ahead, but Shane is getting better too. And we’ve got Caleb, who started nine games for us last year, we can put back there too. That’s why I think we’re a little better at the quarterback position than we have been, because we’ve got some experience back there at least. “Our quarterback situation right now, we’ve got two or three guys, so we feel like we might be a little ahead of where we ever have been at the quarterback position since I’ve been here.” Pigeon Forge isn’t exactly known as a pass-first type of offensive team, so the Tigers don’t try to get

too fancy with things in 7-on-7 passing league contests. “With the type of offense we run on Friday nights, we try to focus on our same routes we run on Fridays,” said Hammonds. “We’re just trying to get some timing down with our quarterbacks and receivers, and we’re fortunate enough to have a lot of those guys back from last year. “A lot of those guys have worked together for at least a year now, so we’re enjoying this, this is good for us.” Black, last year’s Orangeand-Black starter, got a lot of work at slot receiver and running back on Thursday, along with a little time under center. “We’re trying to let Caleb See TIGERS, Page A9

Lady Tigers’ Oliver is All-State

Tigers duo make TSWA All-State By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor

By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor PIGEON FORGE — On the softball field, Makenzie Oliver does a little bit of everything for the Pigeon Forge Lady Tigers. As one of the team’s top two pitchers she routinely takes the mound in big games, and her control and veloc- Makenzie Oliver ity often help lead her team to victory. When she’s not on the mound, Oliver’s stellar play at shortstop also helps the team. Add to that Oliver’s .440 batting average, and it’s easy to see why she made the Tennessee Sports Writers Association’s AA All-State team. “Makenzie has that fire about her,” Pigeon Forge coach Jessica Sterling said. “She’s one of the most completive girls we’ve got, and she fires everybody else up with her competitiveness.” Oliver said she was “extremely surprised” at being selected for the All-State team. “I’m really looking for our team to make it to substate, if not state, next year,” Oliver added.

Sevier County ace Brandon Houser delivers a fastball during a game earlier this year. PREP BASEBALL

Sevier County lefty Houser inks pact with King College baseball By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — With school starting in about a month, former Sevier County High School pitching ace Brandon Houser has signed to continue his career playing baseball for King College. The lefty emerged as a staple of the Bears pitching staff his junior season with some big-game victories. A year later he was the staff’s ace and helped pitch the Bears to their first district championship in recent memory.

“Brandon Houser has been the rock that we built the rotation around the last couple of years,” SCHS coach Lance Traywick said. “You can sum him up in one word — competitor.” “He competes like nobody’s business,” Traywick continued. “If he’s got his best stuff or if he doesn’t have his best stuff, for better or worse, he’s giving effort. If we gave him the ball, we knew he was keeping us in the ball game and giving us his best effort. He’ll be sorely missed by the Smoky Bears.” Looking back at his Bears’ career,

Houser said he’s made some great memories. “Freshman year I came in and I was the smallest kid and the slowest, but that didn’t get me down,” Houser said. “I pitched my first (varsity) game against Farragut (as a freshman) and that was the scariest game of my life. I went and threw it where they couldn’t hit it and went three up and three down for three innings.” That helped the then-scrawny little lefty and his confidence, and See HOUSER, Page A9

PIGEON FORGE — And the hits just keep on coming. After an offseason full of accolades for Justin Carter and Wil Crowe, the pair added another to their growing list of recognition late last week Justin Carter as the pair was named to the Tennessee Sports Writers Association AA All-State team. Crowe, who was named to the coach’s second team all-state list Wil Crowe earlier this month, made quite a name for himself as a freshman at PF. The rising sophomore led the team in hitting at a .476 clip and smashed five homers while driving in 49 runs. As the team’s third starter on the mound went 7-1 with a 1.15 ERA. Not too shabby. Carter, who’s been one of the Tigers top pitchers since he was a sophomore, was 9-1 on the mound with a 1.43 ERA for the Tigers , while serving as their offensive sparkplug at the top of the lineup.

Ninth-inning rally falls short in Smokies’ 7-6 loss to Biscuits SEVIERVILLE — Another back-and-forth contest with the Montgomery Biscuits Sunday evening went against the Tennessee Smokies in a 7-6 loss. A last-minute rally fell just short for the Smokies, moving Tennessee (12-12) back to .500 for the season’s second half, 54-39 overall. The Smokies jumped on the Biscuits in the first inning for a 4-0 lead. Singles by Tony Campana and Josh Vitters put runners on first and third for Robinson Chirinos,

who belted a two-out homer to center. Brandon Guyer then made it a four-run game with an RBI double later in the same inning, scoring Russ Canzler on the play. Although Smokies starter Jeremy Papelbon gave up a solo home run to Cody Cipriano in the top of the second, he kept the Biscuits in check through the first four innings, retiring the side in the first, third and fourth innings. The Biscuits eventually got to Papelbon, however, and the pitcher left the game after surrendering

a two-run homer to Montgomery’s John Matulia in the top of the fifth, cutting the Smokies edge to 4-3 at the time. Tennessee reliever Oswaldo Martinez (1-1) was tagged for a run in the sixth and two more in the seventh, allowing the Biscuits to take a 6-4 lead. Smokies reliever Marco Carrillo allowed another Montgomery run that put Tennessee in a three-run hole heading into the bottom of the ninth. The Smokies never surrendered,

however, and the home team made a furious comeback attempt that fell just short. After Brandon Guyer reached base on a leadoff bunt, Tony Thomas tripled down the leftfield line to score Guyer and cut Montgomery’s lead to 7-5. Thomas later scored on a Nate Samson ground out to bring the Smokies to within a run with just one out. After Montgomery reliever Ryan Reid (S, 1) struck out Campana for the second out, Brett Jackson

kept Tennessee’s hopes alive with a single to right. But Reid got Vitters to ground out on a high chopper to second to pick up his first save of the year and end the Smokies’ comeback bid. Reid’s save gave the win to Biscuits starter Alex Torres (9-3), who struck out seven in 7-2/3 innings. Papelbon took a no decision, allowing three runs in five inning of work, walking one and striking out two.

Advice

Husband uncomfortable in filthy home of wife’s sister

Zits

Blondie

Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: My wife and I enjoy a great marriage, but from time to time, her sister invites us over for parties. Her house is filthy and absolutely disgusting. We don’t know how to handle the situation. I have an 8-year-old son and don’t really want him spending time in that nauseating house. My wife can put up with it in order to be with her sister, but I don’t want to go there. Should we be honest about why, or do we continue to make excuses for my absence? -- Indiana Dad Dear Indiana: We’re surprised the other party guests continue to show up if the house is such a pigsty. Are we talking dirty dishes in the sink (minor) or rotting food in the living room and rats scurrying about (call the health department)? If their home is a health hazard to small children who live there, your wife should speak to her sister and explain the need to be more conscientious. Otherwise, this falls under the MYOB category. If you can’t tolerate the mess, don’t go. But let your wife be your guide when it comes to how best to handle her sister. Dear Annie: I have been married to “Sam” for two years. Before we were together, Sam was in a relationship with “Sara,” who became pregnant. She claimed the baby was his, and he believed her. He took care of this child and loved him. But Sara started seeing her exboyfriend when he was released from prison. That made Sam question whether the child was his. After we married, Sam

demanded a paternity test. Sara said she needed to ask her boyfriend because he was raising this child. The boyfriend refused. Sara waffled back and forth, saying both men were the father of her baby. Recently, the child was removed from her home because of abuse accusations. Even though this boy now looks a great deal like Sam, the authorities will not turn him over to us because Sara claims her boyfriend is the father. If this child is Sam’s, he wants to take responsibility. He asked again for a paternity test, and Sara refused. Now she claims the child is not his and the only reason she originally said so was for support money. But, Annie, the time frame doesn’t match up. As far as we can determine, her boyfriend was in prison when she became pregnant. I think she refuses a paternity test because she doesn’t want Sam to get custody. Is there anything else my husband can do other than getting a court-ordered paternity test? -- Baby Mama Drama Dear Drama: Does Sam want custody of this child? If so, he needs to pursue it before the child’s attachments become stronger. That means a court-ordered paternity test, because obviously, Sara is never going to acquiesce on her own. It will also clear up the question

of whose child it is and settle the matter once and for all. Dear Annie: I read the letter from “Not Over the Hill,” whose grandson’s teenage friends run around naked all day. Her husband thinks it’s fine and says it was common when he was a boy. Granddad and I are from the same era. When we were kids, group nudity wasn’t unusual -- but only when there was a reason for it. However, today most teenage boys are more modest and quick to accuse others of being gay. They also read a sexual context into any nudity that involves more than one person. Grandpa should try a nonjudgmental approach and ask his grandson why the boys do this. It would be a good opportunity to open some dialogue and offer support if there are any issues. I do not suspect anything objectionable is happening, but there may be a hidden element that more conservative parents would find not to their liking. -- Member of IECA Pittsburgh Dear Pittsburgh: You’ve made a good point, and we hope Granddad will follow your suggestion.

nation/world briefs Trucker charged with dumping body

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — An Ohio trucker has been charged with dumping a Tennessee woman’s body at a closed rest stop along a U.S. highway. Police arrested the 33-year-old Derenberger, of Bucyrus, on Saturday. He’s charged with abusing a corpse and was ordered held on $250,000 bond Monday in Circleville Municipal Court. Police say the driver, Trenton Derenberger, said he was giving 36-year-old Kim Vaughn of Memphis a ride in Knoxville when she died in the truck’s cab. The Pickaway County Sheriff says Derenberger drove 16 hours to Ohio and dumped the body along U.S. route 23 on July 8. The partially clothed body was found the next morning by state transportation workers. An autopsy didn’t determine Vaughn’s cause of death. Police say a toxicology report is pending.

W. Kentucky cockfighting ring raided BOWLING GREEN, Ky. (AP) — State police say 63 people were arrested or cited from six states when authorities raided a cockfighting ring in western Kentucky. The Daily News of Bowling Green reported state police executed a search warrant Saturday in Brownsville. Police say they found weapons, $35,000 in cash, a marijuana growing operation and a caged arena. Police say those arrested or cited were from Kentucky, Illinois, Tennessee, Alabama, Georgia and Ohio.

Blago brother: Fundraising offer ‘joke’ CHICAGO (AP) — Rod Blagojevich’s brother says a businessman claimed he could raise millions in campaign funds if Jesse Jackson Jr. were named to the Senate — but that he and the Illinois governor considered it “a joke.” Robert Blagojevich testified Monday at the ousted governor’s corruption trial. He said businessman Raghuveer Nayak told him that he could raise $1 million if the congressman was appointed to the seat Barack Obama was leaving to move to the White House. Robert Blagojevich said Nayak said he could raise another $5 million eventually. But Robert Blagojevich said neither he nor his brother took the offer seriously. He said he told Nayak that Jackson was not going to be appointed. Both Blagojevich brothers have pleaded not guilty to taking part in a scheme to sell the Senate seat.

Texas teen raises $1M for hospital

MCKINNEY, Texas (AP) — A teenager has reached his goal of raising $1 million for the free Dallas children’s hospital that treated him as a child. Ben Sater had vowed to raise the money for Texas Scottish Rite Hospital for Children before he went to college. The 18-year-old soon-to-be Austin College freshman has done so, with nearly $19,000 to spare. Organizers announced Monday that they’ve raised $1,018,842 for the hospital that treats children free of charge. They did it through golf tournaments for children ages 7 to 18 over the last eight years. Sater was treated at Texas Scottish Rite for a condition called trigger finger, in which fingers lock or catch in a bent position. He had his first operation at age 3.

Oil cleanup workers skim for oil from the Deepwater Horizon oil spill in the Perdido Pass in Orange Beach, Ala.

Cap kept shut despite leaks, seepage NEW ORLEANS (AP) — The federal government Monday allowed BP to keep the cap shut tight on its ruptured Gulf of Mexico oil well for another day despite news the well is leaking at the top and something is seeping from the sea floor nearby. The Obama administration’s point man for the spill, retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, said early Monday that the company promised to watch closely for signs of new leaks around the mile-deep well, which has stopped gushing oil into the water since the experimental cap was closed Thursday. Late Sunday, Allen said something was detected seeping near the broken oil well and demanded in a sharply worded letter that BP step up monitoring of the ocean floor. Allen didn’t say what was seeping. White House spokesman Robert Gibbs said Monday afternoon the seepage was about two miles from the well head. He also said the well head is leaking. The concern all along — since pressure readings on the cap weren’t as high as expected — was a leak elsewhere in the well bore, meaning the cap may have to be reopened to prevent

1,000 plastic ducks float to freedom

FORT WAYNE, Ind. (AP) — A child advocacy agency is hoping to get all its ducks in a row after more than 1,000 plastic entrants in a charity duck race floated to freedom in northeast Indiana. Stop Child Abuse & Neglect says 17,000 plastic ducks were dropped into the St. Joseph River in Fort Wayne during the June 19 fundraiser but that only 15,000 were retrieved that day. Spokeswoman Jennifer Boen says about 1,000 of the rogue ducks have since been recovered, and that some of the others have been spotted as far away as Ohio. The group says it is working with the Fort Wayne Water Department to catch the remaining ducks and that it wouldn’t do anything to jeopardize the beauty of the river.

monitor for any signs that this test could worsen the overall situation. Browner said Allen’s extension went until Monday afternoon. “Clearly we want this to end. But we don’t want to enter into a situation where we have uncontrolled leaks all over the Gulf floor,” Browner said Monday ABC’s “Good Morning America” BP PLC said Monday that the cost of dealing with the oil spill has now reached nearly $4 billion. The company said it has made payments totaling $207 million to settle individual claims for damages from the spill along the southern coast of the United States. Almost 116,000 claims have been submitted and more than 67,500 payments have been made, totaling $207

million. With the newly installed cap keeping oil from BP’s fractured well out of the Gulf during a trial run, this weekend offered a chance for the oil company and government to gloat over their shared success — the first real victory in fighting the spill. Instead, the two sides have spent the past two days disagreeing over what to with the undersea machinery holding back the gusher. The apparent disagreement began to sprout Saturday when Allen said the cap would eventually be hooked up to a milelong pipe to pump the crude to ships on the surface. But early the next day, BP chief operating officer Doug Suttles said the cap should stay clamped shut to keep in the oil until a permanent fix.

61 people killed in India train wreck

SAINTHIA, India (AP) — A powerful crash between two express trains at a station in eastern India early Monday morning killed 61 people and injured scores more. The force of the crash was so intense the roof of one car was thrust onto an overpass above the tracks. It was the second major train crash in West Bengal state in two months. On May 28, a passenger train derailed and was hit by an cargo train, killing 145 people. Authorities blamed sabotage by Maoist rebels for that crash. Railway Minister Mamata Banerjee rushed to the site of Monday’s crash and raised the possibility it was another case of sabotage. But there no immediate indication that rebels were to blame, and railway officials said the cause of the crash was unclear.

the environmental disaster from becoming even worse and harder to fix. An underground leak could let oil and gas escape uncontrolled through bedrock and mud. “When seeps are detected, you are directed to marshal resources, quickly investigate, and report findings to the government in no more than four hours. I direct you to provide me a written procedure for opening the choke valve as quickly as possible without damaging the well should hydrocarbon seepage near the well head be confirmed,” Allen said in a letter to BP Managing Director Bob Dudley. When asked about the seepage and the monitoring, BP spokesman Mark Salt would only say that “we continue to work very closely with all government scientists on this.” Shares of BP PLC were down slightly Monday as investors worried about the seepage and an apparent rift between the oil giant and the U.S. officials in charge of the spill. Allen said BP could continue testing the cap, meaning keeping it shut, only if the company continues to meet their obligations to rigorously
