Man in custody after alleged bank robbery By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer GATLINBURG —Police apprehended a local man Monday after an alleged robbery at the Citizens National Bank at 906 East Parkway. According to information from the Gatlinburg Police Department, 34-yearold Chad E. Smith, of 210 Rattlesnake Hollow Road in Gatlinburg, “was taken into custody inside the bank.” The release from GPD categorizes Smith as a suspect, but does not state he has been charged with a crime. The warrant states that at about 2:26 p.m. Monday, the department received a bank alarm call from the bank and shortly after that, dispatchers got a call from a bank employee saying there was a robbery in progress. “Officers of the Gatlinburg Police Department arrived a short time later and the suspect was taken into custody” the release stated. It later states he was apprehended inside the bank. GPD and the FBI are investigating the incident.

OSHA begins probe of death Medical examiner yet to confirm ID of body found Sunday By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer PIGEON FORGE — The medical examiner has not yet verified the identity of remains found in a digester Sunday at the county’s compost plant, but the Tennessee Occupational Safety and Health Administration has opened an investigation into the incident.

Bobby Reagan, 50, disappeared shortly after 9 a.m. Thursday while working as a tipping floor truck spotter at the facility. His disappearance led to a massive search at the facility and other property owned by Sevier Solid Waste, totaling about 200 acres. That ended Sunday when searchers found a body inside one of the digesters at the composting plant.

The remains were taken Monday for an autopsy and identification, but Monday evening Pigeon Forge Police Chief Jack Baldwin said he hadn’t received confirmation of the identity. TOSHA officials in Nashville, however, confirmed they were looking into the incident; it is standard procedure for the agency to investigate a fatality at any work place.

Personnel entering the digesters of the composting plant during the search for Bobby Reagan had to wear protective suits that offered little ventilation while they worked in temperatures that exceeded 100 degrees.

Sevierville man, 61, faces multiple charges after pointing gun at deputy By JEFF FARRELL Staff writer SEVIERVILLE — A routine traffic stop turned into an armed confrontation Monday before Sevier County Sheriff’s deputies were able to disarm a man who pointed a handgun at one of their deputies.

PIGEON FORGE — Searchers worked through 100 degree temperatures inside and out, but they weren’t going to leave the Sevier County landfill until they located Bobby Reagan. The remains they found in a digester Sunday after three days of searching have not been officially identified, but the search has been called off and Sevier Solid Waste Director Tom Leonard issued a statement saying the staff is “saddened by the loss of Bobby Reagan.” Pigeon Forge Training Officer Chris Knutsen oversaw the search, which involved personnel from a multitude of agencies. “We weren’t going to leave that facility until we searched every possible place we could search, including those digester tubes,” Knutsen said. “If he was still there we were going to find him before we left, which meant we were going to look in every place we could.” That required a lot of manpower, he said, because there were about 180 acres of property to search at the landfill in addition to the closed in spaces of the digesters. While there was speculation from the start that Reagan had fallen into a digester, they planned their search as though he could be anywhere on the grounds. He disappeared while working on the tipping floor Thursday, and his car remained at the landfill. Family members said they hadn’t

SEVIERVILLE — Lt. Gov. and Republican gubernatorial candidate Ron Ramsey visited the Sevierville Chamber of Commerce on Monday during a swing through East Tennessee to share his views with local officials on the importance of tourism, the county’s Ramsey primary industry. Last week, a new report from the Tourism Institute indicated that about half the jobs in Sevier County are related to tourism, so it was a natural focus for Ramsey

as he visited during the closing days of his campaign. “I grew up knowing about tourism very well, living about two mines from Bristol Motor Speedway,” he said, speaking to some local hoteliers as well as representatives of the Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce, Sevierville Chamber of Commerce and Pigeon Forge Department of Tourism. Local officials had to fight during the past state budget cycle to retain tourism funds, especially dollars used to pay for an advertising campaign that lets cities add their own tourism spots to state ads broadcast regionally. Ramsey said he helped fight to keep those funds in the budget. “I’ve always See ramsey, Page A4

Appeals court reverses TVA emissions ruling

Sinkhole affecting ‘66’ traffic

RICHMOND, Va. (AP) — A federal appeals court on Monday reversed a judge’s ruling requiring prompt installation of upgraded emission controls at three coalfired power plants in Tennessee and one in Alabama. A three-judge panel of the 4th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals unanimously overturned a decision by U.S. District Judge Lacy H. Thornburg of Asheville, N.C., who had declared the plants

a “public nuisance� because of their effect on air quality in North Carolina’s scenic western mountains. Thornburg had ordered the Tennessee Valley Authority to accelerate its planned emission control improvements at the four plants — a demand that TVA said would cost an additional $1 billion. But it was the ruling’s impact on utility regulation, not the cost, that prompted the appeals court to reverse the decision.

“If allowed to stand, the injunction would encourage courts to use vague public nuisance standards to scuttle the nation’s carefully created system for accommodating the need for energy production and the need for clean air,� appeals court Judge J. Harvie Wilkinson III wrote. “The result would be a balkanization of clean air regulations and a confused patchwork of standards, to the detriment of industry and the environment alike.�

Department of Transportation maintenance crews started work Monday to repair a sinkhole discovered on Highway 66/Winfield Dunn Parkway south of Huffaker Road. The sinkhole was discovered Monday morning in a northbound turn lane which would allow motorists to turn right onto Huffaker Road. TDOT engineers believe there is a sinkhole under the pavement that has caused the cracking and depression on the surface. The right-hand lane will remain closed while crews dig up the pavement to reveal the size and source of the sinkhole.

Minor business additions on PF planners’ agenda By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer PIGEON FORGE — With a very light agenda, city Planning Commission members will be called on to offer votes on two minor additions to a pair of businesses when they meet at 3 p.m. today in City Hall. On the slate for that session are proposals for expansion at Mountain Manny’s, a gift and sportswear shop, and Smith Family Theater, which has added on in several phases since changing over to a dinner theater. This request seeks an OK for covering over part of the sidewalk at that popular attraction for use as a new entryway. Things had to be rearranged at the facility when food was added last year, meaning the existing lobby was squeezed some. “This is a very small addition and it looks like they intend to just extend the entrance a bit,� Assistant City Planner Karl Kreis said Thursday while reviewing a map of the proposal. Just down the Parkway at Mountain Manny’s, the air brush operation is set to get a considerable expansion if the request from that business is approved. “They are doubling the size of their airbrush T-shirt operation,� Kreis explained. Kreis conceded both

projects are so small they generally wouldn’t even come before the commission, with the planning staff offering approval for those little changes. However, with the number of items on the group’s agenda consistently declining since the recession began and slowed development, this type of project can now be given that attention. “Both site plans are pretty minor,� Kreis said. “This is the kind of thing we could usually handle in-house but since the agenda is so small they were added on there.� Also set to come before the group are: Special Events n King of the Smokies triathlon/athletic event Oct. 16-17 at the Pigeon Forge Community Center, 170 Community Center Drive n American Cancer Society Relay For Life May 20-21, 2011, at Patriot Park n Wilcoxon Ventures

The city’s Board of Zoning Appeals, which is composed of the same membership as the Planning Commission, will meet following the conclusion of the 3 p.m. session. On the agenda for that group is a request for an additional variance of the frontyard setback requirement to allow a structure at 523 Royal Coachman Drive to be just 12.72 feet from the road, rather than the 15 feet it was previously granted a variance to be. n dhodges@themountainpress.com

sequent searches, he said, and they used helicopters with infrared equipment to scan the area as well. Knutsen also had personnel on the ground performing a grid search in which they would go over the ground while staying in a row looking for Reagan. It was hard work during days where the heat index was well over 100 degrees for much of the time and there was little shade and no shelter. They were going over waste or working through overgrown brush for much of that time as well, he said. Conditions were no better for personnel working inside, especially those who went inside the digesters. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s no heating or shredding equipment inside the tubes, he explained, but tempera-

tures reach 150 degrees during the process just as part of the chemical reactions that break down the waste. Temperatures stayed over 100 degrees even after they opened the tubes and emptied much of the waste before working their way through the tubes. The process leaves the tubes filled with a lot of carbon dioxide and little oxygen, meaning personnel had to use oxygen tanks or tubes connected to tanks while working in the digesters. They also had to wear protective suits that made it even hotter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The personal protection they were offers no ventilation,â&#x20AC;? he said. In those conditions, he said, teams could only work for a few minutes at a time before they had to come

back out. After all those efforts, they found a body in the digester Sunday. While the remains are believed to be Reagan, they were sent to a medical examiner for official identification and for an autopsy and the results were not available Monday. In the meantime, Knutsen praised the efforts of all the personnel who took part in the search. Counseling was being offered Monday for the searchers as well as for employees at the landfill. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Words could not describe how hard those emergency service personnel worked those last four days,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They went above and beyond any expectation.â&#x20AC;?

YELLOWSTONE NATIONAL PARK, Wyo. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Vice President Joe Biden says the hundreds of stimulus projects now under way in national parks across the U.S. are long-overdue upgrades to what he calls the countryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s neglected national jewels. The vice president is on a two-day tour highlighting Recovery Act projects in Yellowstone and Grand Canyon national parks. Biden spoke Monday to about 100 Yellowstone National Park employees after surveying the progress of one of the projects, the $4.7 million replacement of the Madison Wastewater Treatment Plant. Biden says some $750 million in stimulus money has gone to 800 national park projects. He says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re beginning to polish once again these national jewels.â&#x20AC;?

heard from him, and both they and his coworkers said it would have been out of character for him to randomly leave the job heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d held for more than 10 years. So during the entire search, personnel were combing over the landfill property as well as the interior of the digesters in the composting facility. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have any clues if he was hurt, if he was there, if he did just get up and leave, so we worked in the area where he was last seen and we worked the whole facility,â&#x20AC;? Knutsen said. They called in tracking dogs and cadaver dogs the first day and during sub-

They were not using the digesters in the area where Reagan was working during the search, he said. Reagan worked for the landfill for 10 years, and had received safety training, Leonard said. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s too early at this point to determine if the incident will lead to any new safety measures. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Since we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;tâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; know what happened, I

Hayward leaving BP; Russia job in the works LONDON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; BP is jettisoning CEO Tony Hayward, whose verbal blunders made the oil giantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s image even worse as it struggled to contain the Gulf oil spill, and will assign him to a key job in Russia, a person familiar with the matter said Monday. Hayward is set to take a post at TNK-BP, the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s joint venture in Russia, according to the person, who spoke on condition of anonymity because an official announcement had not been made by the British companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board. The move was being made more than three months after an oil rig explosion set off the spill and less than two weeks after a temporary cap finally stopped the oil from leaking. The governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s oil spill chief, retired Coast Guard Adm. Thad Allen, said in Washington on Monday that efforts to solidly seal BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s busted deepsea well are set to begin in a week. Moving Hayward gives BP a chance to make a fresh start. BP executive Robert Dudley, an American who has been overseeing oil spill recovery efforts, is likely to be his successor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sooner Bob Dudley is empowered to act as CEO, especially with regard to the U.S., the better it will prove to be for BP,â&#x20AC;? said Stephen Pope, the chief global equity strategist at Cantor Fitzgerald in London. The board met Monday but it was unclear whether it had made the demotion official. A statement was expected early Tuesday, at the same time the company files its second quarter results. Hayward left BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s headquarters after the board meeting without speaking to reporters. The Britonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

silver Lexus was mobbed by photographers, who chased the car down the tony street in central London. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not yet clear what Haywardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role will be with TNK-BP, but the job suggests BP still holds more faith in Hayward than much of the U.S. public and political establishment do. Analysts consider the Russian venture one of BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s crown jewels; it accounts for a quarter of the companyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s production. TNK-BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s challenges are well known to Haywardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s likely successor as CEO, who used to run it. Dudley was forced to flee Russia in 2008 and ran BPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interests there in absentia until that became untenable after a dispute with Russian shareholders. Repeated calls to TNKBPâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s offices in Moscow went unanswered Monday. BP owns half of the oil firm, which is Russiaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s third-largest. Moving Hayward gives insiders who believed he was scapegoated for his offthe-cuff remarks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; rather than his performance â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a chance to keep a highly trained professional in the company. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They still think highly of Tony Hayward but they have to get him away from this situation,â&#x20AC;? said Phil Weiss, an oil analyst with Argus Research in New York. â&#x20AC;&#x153;TNK-BP is an important part of BP.â&#x20AC;?

CHICAGO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A lawyer for Rod Blagojevich clashed with the judge in the former Illinois governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s corruption trial over what he could say in his closing arguments, pledging Monday that he was ready to go to jail for contempt if the judge did not change his mind. Judge James B. Zagel sent the jury home for the day after Blagojevichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney Sam Adam Jr. complained the judge was gutting his closing arguments by not allowing the defense to mention witnesses that prosecutors did not call. Prosecutors had mentioned some of those witnesses, including convicted fundraiser Antoin â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tonyâ&#x20AC;? Rezko, in their closing argument, and Adam argued the defense should be able to do the same. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your honor, I have a man here that is fighting for his life,â&#x20AC;? Adam said, turning red and raising his hands. Zagel responded: â&#x20AC;&#x153;You will follow that order because if you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t follow that order you will be in contempt of court.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m willing to go to jail on this,â&#x20AC;? Adam shot back. Zagel said he was giving Adam the night to rework his closing arguments, given his â&#x20AC;&#x153;profound misunderstanding of legal rules.â&#x20AC;? He said Adam could designate another defense attorney to give the closing if he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t follow the rules. After court adjourned, Adam told reporters that prosecutors didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t call dozens of potential witnesses, and â&#x20AC;&#x153;the jury should know that.â&#x20AC;? He said he doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know if he will deliver closing arguments on Tuesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My job as a lawyer is to do everything I can for my client and if (going to jail) is what it takes, if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s necessary, in a heartbeat,â&#x20AC;? Adam said. The prosecution had wrapped up its closing arguments earlier, as did an attorney for Blagojevichâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, Robert Blagojevich. Both men have pleaded not guilty to an alleged scheme to sell the Senate seat that Barack Obama gave up when he was elected president, and to plot-

ting to illegally pressure people for campaign contributions. Assistant U.S. Attorney Chris Niewoehner started his closing Monday by citing the most famous comment on FBI wiretap tapes played in court â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Blagojevich calling the Senate seat â&#x20AC;&#x153;(expletive) goldenâ&#x20AC;? and saying he wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give it up for nothing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He did his absolute best to turn (his) newfound power into something golden for himself,â&#x20AC;? Niewoehner told jurors. He said Blagojevich was â&#x20AC;&#x153;at the center of corrupt individuals.â&#x20AC;? Niewoehner told jurors that Rod Blagojevich need not have made money nor gotten a high-profile job in order for his alleged schemes to be illegal. He also said they shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be concerned whether Blagojevich actually managed to trade the appointment to Obamaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seat for an ambassadorship or a Cabinet post or any money â&#x20AC;&#x201D; only that he made the effort. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be a successful criminal to be a criminal,â&#x20AC;? he said.

nation/world briefs White House: Afghan leaks â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;alarmingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The monumental leak of classified Afghan war documents threatened Monday to create new conflict with Pakistan, whose spy agency was a focus of much of the material, and raised questions about Washingtonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s own ability to protect military secrets. The White House called the disclosures â&#x20AC;&#x153;alarmingâ&#x20AC;? and scrambled to assess the damage. The documents are described as battlefield reports compiled by various military units that provide an unvarnished look at combat in the past six years, including U.S. frustration over reports Pakistan secretly aided insurgents and civilian casualties at the hand of U.S. troops. WikiLeaks.org, a self-described whistleblower organization, posted 76,000 of the reports to its website Sunday night. The group said it is vetting another 15,000 documents for future release. Col. Dave Lapan, a Defense Department spokesman, said the military would probably need â&#x20AC;&#x153;days, if not weeksâ&#x20AC;? to review all the documents and determine â&#x20AC;&#x153;the potential damage to the lives of our service members and coalition partners.â&#x20AC;?

Baghdad, said 68 people were injured in the attacks. The pilgrims were on their way to Karbala to take part in an important religious holiday, known as Shabaniyah, that attracts devout Shiites from around the country. There was no immediate claim of responsibility for the Monday bombings, but the method is the hallmark of Sunni extremists. While violence has dropped dramatically in the past years in Iraq, suspected Sunni insurgents regularly target Shiite religious ceremonies and holy places in an attempt to re-ignite sectarian tensions that brought Iraq to the brink of civil war in 2005 and 2007.

Ramsey backs closed state primaries MILAN (AP) — Republican Ron Ramsey is alone among the state’s gubernatorial candidates in calling for closed primaries in Tennessee after a woman was blocked from casting a GOP ballot because she had previously voted Democratic. Tennessee voters aren’t registered by party and voters often participate in different primaries depending on developments in a given campaign. But poll watchers can challenge voters if they are “not a bona fide member of political party” they are seeking to vote in.

Ramsey, a Blountville auctioneer and speaker of the state Senate, said there could be disingenuous votes cast in the Republican primary because the Democratic gubernatorial nomination is uncontested. “You ought to be voting for who you think is the best person for that position, not who you think your party wants to face that fall,” he said at a campaign stop in Milan last week. “That is kind of rigging the election.” His fellow Republican candidates, U.S. Rep.

The candidates’ comments came after a Crossville woman was barred from voting in the Republican primary last week when a poll worker identified her as having previously voted in Democratic contests. The Crossville Chronicle reports that Gail Hubbard, one of three elections judges who originally upheld the challenge against voter Mickey Eldridge, later had a change of heart.

commentary

Social Security privatization to hurt GOP Vice President Biden was absurdly optimistic about the 2010 congressional elections in an interview with ABC: “I don’t think the (Democratic) losses are going to be bad at all. I think we’re going to shock the heck out of everybody.” I think Joe Biden is wrong. But if there is a dark cloud gathering on the GOP’s cheery electoral prospects it is this: the GOP’s support of privatizing Social Security. Item: Sharron Angle is in some trouble. The latest poll has Harry Reid ahead 44 to 37 percent. Of course, Reid is in even bigger trouble. Only 44 percent of voters say they will hold their noses and vote for him. The upside for Reid is hard to find. But he is already banking, among other things, on Angle’s statements that she wants to get rid of Social Security by totally privatizing it. Reid’s “What’s Next?” TV ads highlight for seniors the emotional uncertainty of dramatic reform. Traditionally, when conservative candidates fail because voters found them “out of the mainstream,” pundits blame social issues. In a country where the two marquee conservativesocial issues -- abortion and gay marriage -- each now garner majority opposition, this is difficult to credit. It is hard for me to understand why some GOP pundits push Social Security privatization as a pathway to victory. Lest we forget, President Bush, fresh from beating John Kerry, decided to spend his political capital pushing partial privatization. He stressed that current beneficiaries would keep all their benefits, and that only younger Americans would get the privatization option. Yet polls showed the more he talked, the less Americans liked it. “Three months after President Bush launched his drive to restructure Social Security by creating private investment accounts, public support for his program remains weak, with only 35 percent of Americans now saying they approve of his handling of the issue, according to a new Washington Post-ABC News poll,” The Washington Post reported on March 15, 2005. “Moreover, 58 percent of those polled this time said the more they hear about Bush’s plan, the less they like it.” And this was before the stock market crashed, and ordinary people at or nearing the age of retirement lost huge chunks of their investment portfolios. Yet in 2010, one of the GOP’s bright young stars, Paul Ryan of Wisconsin, pulled together a deficit reduction plan that called once again for the partial privatization of Social Security, and leading conservatives piled on the praise. In the July 12 Weekly Standard, Fred Barnes wrote: “For Republicans, the road map authored by Rep. Paul Ryan of Wisconsin is the most important proposal in domestic policy since Ronald Reagan embraced supply-side economics in the 1980 presidential campaign.” He predicts it will be the pathway to power, a landslide election in 2010 and victory in 2012, and he praises in particular the Social Security “choice” proposal. I hope he’s right, but I don’t think so. The influential Talking Points Memo website, smelling blood, is now circulating a television interview from the 1990s in which Rand Paul endorsed privatizing Social Security. I hope both Sharron Angle and Rand Paul pull out their Senate races. But I also hope Republicans learn the true lessons from Obama. Americans do not like politicians who use genuine crises to push unrelated ideological agendas, right or left. You can get a chunk of Americans to say they support privatization. But the people who vote on Social Security are going to be the people who depend on it, and they do not favor dramatic change. The underlying trends are bad for privatization. An April 2010 Gallup Poll shows a new high of non-retired Americans (34 percent) expect Social Security to be a major source of retirement income, as equity in homes and IRA investment portfolios drop. Meanwhile the number of non-retirees in a July Gallup Poll who believe Social Security won’t be there when they retire has soared to 60 percent. Seventy-eight percent of Americans believe Social Security is either “in crisis” or has a “major problem.” Joe Biden is licking his chops. I hope I’m wrong on this. But watch out. — Maggie Gallagher, president of the National Organization for Marriage, is known for her conservative social policy analysis of social trends and conditions.

Editorial

Unsung heroes Many thanks due officers who worked so hard in search/recovery of landfill worker Sometimes all you have to go on is hope and faith. For three and a half gut-wrenching days, local officials and the family of Bobby Reagan agonized over his disappearance, hoping and praying he hadn’t met his death while working at the Sevier County landfill. On Sunday afternoon everyone’s fears were realized. A body was found in the landfill digester. A positive ID has yet to be made, but it appears it was Mr. Reagan. What happened and why are questions yet to be answered, but for now a family is grieving, even as they finally have some closure. Thoughts and prayers deserve to be with the family of Mr. Reagan. But let’s not forget the dedication and determination of dozens of firefighters and rescue personnel who looked diligently and thoroughly for Mr. Reagan

hour after hour, day after day. The temperatures have been brutal, and the heat at the landfill was even more intense. Temperatures inside the digester reached 120 degrees or more. Rescue workers could spend only 10 minutes or so inside before they had to be pulled out and others sent in. The personnel of the Pigeon Forge Fire Department and other agencies never gave up hope. They wanted closure for the Reagan family as well. Along the way lots of businesses and individuals offered assistance. Shoney’s in Pigeon Forge sent over breakfast Sunday morning. Kroger provided food. Knox County Rescue Squad sent in a technical confinedspace team with experience at such rescue and recovery operations. Workshop Tools provided knives the

workers needed. Churches throughout the community prayed collectively and individually for the Reagan family and the workers. Many of the Pigeon Forge firefighters were inside the air-conditioned comfort of the offices at the station Sunday evening, gathering their thoughts and trying to recover from a difficult and emotional three days. They were tired and spent, but relieved to have helped the Reagan family, even if the outcome was not what everyone had hoped for. We don’t often think of the service provided by firefighters and emergency personnel, until we call on them. The officers from Pigeon Forge the other departments that assisted are owed thanks and appreciation for what was a hard and arduous assignment.

Public forum Support for keeping Arrowmont needed before it’s too late

Editor: Can you imagine Gatlinburg without Arrowmont School of Arts and Crafts? In just about a month the Board of Governors of Arrowmont will announce their decision to keep the school in Gatlinburg or to move it to Greeneville, Tenn. Suppose that the decision is made to move the school to Greeneville. The Arrowmont sign on the Parkway at the campus entrance would be gone. Community classes for children and adults would not be held; there would be no free gallery visits and the Artist Outfitters Supply store that carries art supplies and the most recently published books on art and craft would be closed. Gone would be the selection of handmade ceramics, jewelry and stationery that are perfect

for gifts. There would be no art auctions and or annual meetings of art organizations. The summer and autumn workshops with nationallyknown art instructors would end, with their discounts for local residents. Arrowmont would be located one and one half hours — 58 miles — to the east of Gatlinburg. Perhaps worst of all, over half of the 23 fulltime and parttime highly skilled and experienced employees who work on the Gatlinburg campus would be without jobs, and the large team of local and very loyal volunteers who give so much time and energy to the school would be decreased to only those who could spend the time and money it takes to travel that distance regularly. If you want Arrowmont to remain in Gatlinburg, you should take the time now to stop in at 556 Parkway or drop them a note and let the staff know how you feel. Visit the school Web site at www.arrowmont.org or pick

up a catalog and sign up for a workshop. Take a stroll through the Sandra J. Blain Gallery and see the 2010 Instructor Exhibit — it’s free to the public Monday through Friday from 8:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Shop for a handthrown mug or an Arrowmont T-shirt or a recently-published art book at the Artist Outfitters Supply store. And while you’re looking around the campus, perhaps donate a few dollars to the non-profit organization that has served Gatlinburg and the surrounding counties for so many years. Let the administrators and staff members of Arrowmont know this week that you want the school to stay in Sevier County, not only for the historic value of the school but for a future of fine arts education. Put off speaking up for a couple of weeks and it will be too late for your opinion to make a difference. Susan Kunze Sandersville, Ga.

LOCAL RACING

Gatlinburg businessman buys 411 Motor Speedway By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEYMOUR — Gatlinburg businessman Mitch McCarter has been involved with racing since he was just a boy. With his purchase of 411 Motor Speedway in Seymour late last week, it looks like racing will play a primary role in his future. With two sons beginning their racing careers, the 42-year-old McCarter, whose father Pershing McCarter started McCarter Lumber Company, believes he’s making a

long-term investment in the purchase of 411. As a friend of 411 General Manager and promoter Chris Corum, McCarter said he learned of the track’s availability through Corum’s interest in buying the track last year. When that didn’t happen, McCarter stepped in and bought the complex, which includes the 1/3rd mile track, the drag strip and the other facilities on the 50-acre property. “It was a pretty quick deal, probably from me first thinking about it seriously until we closed on it

was less than a month’s time,” McCarter said. McCarter said with the season half-over he’s not planning on making many immediate changes to 411 Motor Speedway. For one, his friend Chris Corum will remain in the GM/promoter position at the track.

Some cosmetic changes will be happening at track, however. “We’re going to do a lot of cleaning up, just powerwashing and cleaning up,” McCarter said. “One thing my wife said is that we’ve got to make it a little more women-friendly.” “We want to take care

of the customers that we already have, and of course gain new customers.” McCarter also stressed that with his family’s roots in racing, the drivers should only see positives from the new ownership. “We’re racers, so we’re seeing it from both sides. I’m seeing from the perspective of a father of two race car drivers and as the owner of the track. So it’s a different perspective than most people have.” They’re already planning a special event for after the track’s regular season, which concludes

October 30. While he couldn’t reveal the special event, McCarter seemed excited about it. As for racing this week, the McCarters and everyone at 411 welcome fans to Tuesday Night Tango tonight. “It’s a special race, this is round three, it’s a $1,000 a win in the late model class, and there will be three other divisions running — crate late models, classic cars and the pure minis.” Gates open at 5 p.m. and racing begins 7 p.m. mpsports@themountainpress.com

G-P’s Barber, Agosto shine at Orlando tourney

Eagles’ kicking game goes to the Butter Bean

By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer ORLANDO, Fla. — Rising GatlinburgPittman Highlanders basketball seniors Jose Agosto and Morrease Barber have continued to excel in AAU summer hoops action, most recently at a huge tournament in Orlando, Fla., last week. Agosto and Barber traveled with the Knoxville Panthers, coached by Seymour’s Don Brown, to the Super Showcase tournament and both hoopsters turned in some standout performances in five games. The 220-pound Agosto had 18 points and 12 boards in one contest, while Barber put up a whopping 27 points to go along with seven rebounds in the tourney finale against Team Truth of Kentucky.

“I would just like to thank Don Brown for treating our players so well this summer,” said G-P basketball coach Raul Placeres. “I know that Morrease and Jose both appreciated the opportunity to play for him and the Knoxville Panthers this summer. “Both (players) had a very good experience.” According to Placeres, both Agosto and Barber have increased their position with college scouts this summer. “Their stock with these coaches has gotten bigger,” said Placeres. “They are going to have a lot of options for the future. “Hopefully, God willing, they can both sign in the early signing period in October or November, instead of dragging it out.” At another hoops tourney earlier this summer in Louisville, Ky., Barber

Archer earns pitching honor

Cobey Hitchcock/The Mountain Press

Smokies pitcher Chris Archer has been phenomenal since joining the Smokies on June 28, winning four of his five starts with the team.

SEVIERVILLE — For the fifth time in 2010, the Tennessee Smokies’ pitching staff has been recognized by the Southern League. Starter Chris Archer was named Monday by the Southern League as its “Pitcher of the Week,” for the week of July 19-25. The award is the first for Archer this season and eighth league award overall for the Smokies in 2010. Since being called up to Tennessee on June 28, Archer has won in four of his first five starts with the team. He gave the Smokies a muchneeded 4-2 win last Monday versus Montgomery, striking out six in 5 1/3 innings of work. Archer then followed that up with a dominating performance Saturday in Mississippi, allowing only one hit in six innings in Tennessee’s 4-0 Game 2 win over the M-Braves. Archer is quickly making a name for himself with the Smokies, having yet to give up an earned run in 28 1/3 innings thrown. The Raleigh, N.C. native was originally selected by the Cleveland Indians in the fifth round of the 2006 MLB First-Year Player Draft. Archer was then acquired by Chicago in the Mark DeRosa trade in 2009. From submitted reports

SEYMOUR — The Seymour Eagles high school football team is used to having stronglegged kickers on their Blue-and-Gold squad with Carlos Lopez and Stephen Martin handling the kicking duties the past few seasons. But this year, the job will be handed over to a rising junior with a hungry name ... Jonathan “Butter Bean” Hurst. “I don’t even know where that name came from, it’s just what everybody calls him,” laughed second-year Seymour head football coach Jim Moore. “I don’t what it’s for, but it fits him.” Although Lopez and Martin were both standouts, Moore said he feels comfortable handing the reigns of the kicking

Jonathan “Butter Bean” Hurst game over to Hurst this season. “He’s a really good kid, and he’s really worked hard,” said Moore. “Butter Bean has really improved a lot from last year, and I think he’ll do just fine.” chitchcock@themountainpress.com

Tennesseans have another reason to hate former coach Titans sue Lane Kiffin, USC for poaching assistant By TERESA M. WALKER AP Sports Writer

Southern California football coach Lane Kiffin watches during NCAA college football practice in Los Angeles, Tuesday, March 30.

NASHVILLE — The Tennessee Titans are suing Southern California and coach Lane Kiffin for “maliciously” luring away assistant running backs coach Kennedy Pola a week before training camp opens. Tennessee Football Inc., the company that owns the Titans, filed the lawsuit Monday in Davidson County Chancery Court against both the university and Kiffin. The lawsuit accuses Southern California and Kiffin of violating Pola’s contract that required him to have written permission to discuss a job with anyone other than the Titans. Tennessee signed Pola on Feb. 1. Kiffin hired Pola on Saturday as his offensive coordinator and running backs coach at Southern California.

Southern League debut. The Smokies broke a scoreless tie in the top of the fifth, as Marwin Gonzalez hit an RBI single to score Matt Spencer to give Tennessee a 1-0 lead. The Smokies added another run in the inning when Brett Jackson earned a bases-loaded walk to score Tony Thomas from third, giving Tennessee a 2-0 edge. Steve Clevenger continued his hot hitting with an RBI single in the top of the sixth to put Tennessee’s lead at 3-0. And in the top of the seventh, Thomas hit a solo homer to make it the eventual final. Smokies reliever Marcos Mateo pitched a scoreless ninth inning, preserving the shutout over the Braves. In early action, the Smokies saw their fourgame winning streak come

to an end, losing 7-6 to the Braves in the first seven inning game of a doubleheader on Sunday evening. The loss was Tennessee’s first since last Sunday’s game against Montgomery. Mississippi’s win was their first over Tennessee in the five game series. The Braves built a 1-0 lead in the bottom of the second on a Donnell Linares solo homer. Tennessee retaliated with a pair of runs in the third, thanks to an RBI single for Russ Canzler that allowed Tony Campana to score, and Marwin Gonzalez scored on an error on the play to give Tennessee a 2-1 lead. Mississippi tied the game in the bottom of the third with Willie Cabrera’s RBI single, before scoring two runs in the fourth to go ahead 4-2. The Braves also tacked

on runs in the bottom of the sixth on an error by Tennessee second baseman Nate Samson to put the Braves lead at 6-2. Tennessee loaded the bases with two outs in the top of the seventh, when Robinson Chirinos hit a grand slam that tied the game at 6s for the Smokies. The blast was Chirinos’ 14th this season for Tennessee, and his first grand slam of the season. The Braves rallied in the bottom of the seventh inning against Smokies reliever Aaron Shafer, however. Antoan Richardson hit an RBI double for the game winner. Despite giving up the grand slam to Chirinos, Braves reliever Juan Abreu took the victory for Mississippi to improve to 4-1 in 2010. Shafer took the loss for the Smokies to fall to 1-2.

Bulluck moving to the middle with Giants Former Titans backer not nervous about new position By TOM CANAVAN AP Sports Writer EAST RUTHERFORD, N.J. — Keith Bulluck isn’t worried about adjusting to his new surroundings with the New York Giants. The Meadowlands is a lot closer to his home in New Jersey than Tennessee, and playing middle linebacker for the Giants is just a slight variation of what he did with the Titans in latter part of his 10-year stint. “I don’t think it’ll be any different here, and I haven’t really even thought twice about it,” Bulluck said Monday, just two days after signing a one-year, $2.5 million contract with the Giants. “It was not a matter of me getting confidence to play the middle,” said the 33-year-old who spent most of his time as a weakside linebacker with the Titans. “Confidence has never been an issue with me when it comes to this game. I think that it’s just going to be fun

better this summer,” said Placeres. Both players have received interest from schools such as Jacksonville, ETSU, UT Martin, Eastern Kentucky, Lincoln Memorial, Tusculum and Charleston Southern to name a few. Besides some impressive work on the court, Agosto has been hitting the gym this offseason as well. He’s added 15 pounds of muscle to last year’s playing weight

and I’m planning on making a lot of plays.” The Giants have had question marks about their middle linebacker position since releasing Antonio Pierce in February because of concerns about a neck injury that sidelined him for the second half of last season. For most of the offseason, it appeared that either Jonathan Goff or rookie Phillip Dillard would fight for the starting job. Now Bullock seems destined to get it, although he won’t claim it. “In this league, nothing is given to you,” Bulluck said. “So, one thing that I have always loved about this league is that every year you have to come prove yourself.” Bulluck does have to prove himself. He tore the anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee late last season and had major surgery. The former Syracuse star says his knee is about 90 percent and all he needs to do is get himself in football shape for camp, which opens on Sunday at the University at Albany. “Me and my family could have easily just rode off into the sunset and leave it at that,” he said. “I still have that burning desire to come and play, and prove myself and that I’m one of the best linebackers in the league.

You know, that’s my challenge. To play for this organization that still has a lot to prove can Keith Bulluck and win, that’s another big reason to come here.” Bulluck knows the Giants. He grew up in Rockland County in New York, a roughly 40-minute drive from the Giants’ headquarters in the Meadowlands sports complex. During the offseason, he occasionally bumps into players near his home in Edgewater, which is just north of the New Meadowlands Stadium, the new home of the Giants and Jets. However, he admitted on Monday that he has yet to discuss the team’s defense with new coordinator Perry Fewell. He also knows that it is going to take a little time for him to develop chemistry with his new teammates. The Giants (8-8) struggled defensively last season, giving up 427 points in missing the playoffs for the first time since 2004. In the offseason, the team signed safeties Antrel Rolle and Deon Grant, drafted heavily on the defensive side of the ball and got some people healthy in the offseason.

“I know this team as a whole has something to prove,” Bulluck said. “For everyone to be talking about Dallas, Washington, and Philadelphia and not talking about Big Blue is absurd.” The Giants are expecting a lot from Bulluck, who was second on the Titans with 118 tackles in 14 games. They gave him No. 53, which is the number worn by Hall of Fame middle linebacker Harry Carson in the Giants’ run to their first Super Bowl title. “No pressure,” Bulluck said. “I know the great Harry Carson wore it. I’m not a pressure type person. I’ll be fine, I’ll be all right. That’s the least of my concerns. I won’t disrespect the jersey.” Bulluck said that the Giants asked him to work out about two weeks ago. His final decision came down to the Giants and Arizona Cardinals, and he chose New York after a long talk with retired Giants defensive end Michael Strahan. “I’m here to win football games,” Bulluck said. “I’m here to bring some people along with me, and maybe my mentality and attitude will rub off. I’m sure these guys’ attitudes and mentalities will rub off on me. I’m a New York Giant, so I need to get acclimated to them. I’ll just fit in where I fit in.”

of 205-pounds. But, reportedly, the most pleasant surprise of the summer for G-P was the AAU play of rising senior Jon McCroskey, who hooped it up for Team Hustle of Knoxville, a team sponsored by Adidas. “Jon has been a big surprise this summer,” said Placeres. “He’s improved his game tremendously.” McCroskey’s biggest tournament of this offseason was the Hoosier Shootout in Indianapolis, where the G-P player scored double digits in 3-of-4 games, including a 16 point night with four

three-point shots in one contest. McCroskey has drawn some attention from Division I American University Washington D.C., along with

some Division III schools known for their academics, including Emory and Henry College in Va.

Advice

Daughter tired of hiding smoking habit from parents

Zits

Blondie

Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: I am 18 years old and have been hiding a dirty secret from my parents for two years. When I started dating my current boyfriend, I developed the nasty habit of smoking. At first, it was easy hiding it from my parents, but it’s getting a lot harder and riskier now. My father wouldn’t understand, and it would absolutely break his heart if he knew. My mother is beginning to ask why my boyfriend and I so often say we’re going out to get a cup of coffee. We’re really going out so I can smoke. My boyfriend is also tired of the lies, but doesn’t want my parents to think it’s his fault I started smoking. I am not ready to quit yet, so that would make confessing even harder. What should I do? -- Bad Habit Dear Bad: Your parents probably can smell the smoke on your hair and clothes, and over time, smokers can develop yellowing teeth and fingers, so you might not be hiding as much as you think. And quitting will become more difficult the longer you wait. That said, you are 18 years old and an adult. Your choices, even bad ones, belong to you. Hiding your addiction has obviously become too stressful, so confessing will allow you to get the deception off your chest, even if it disappoints your parents. It’s time to face the music, honey. Good luck. Dear Annie: When I was 16, the school nurse noticed I had high blood pressure, so my doctor proceeded to run some tests. He explained that

high blood pressure can damage the kidneys and informed me that mine were only working at about 50 percent capacity. He told me a transplant would be necessary in the future. His words didn’t hit home until 13 years later, when my kidneys actually failed and I ended up on dialysis. Life as I knew it came to a halt. Luckily for me, my cousin Darlene came to my rescue and donated her kidney in March of 2000. Since then, I have a new appreciation for life. I don’t take anything for granted. I’ve run marathons and played volleyball. And I learned about the biennial National Kidney Foundation U.S. Transplant Games -- an Olympic-style event for transplant recipients of all ages. I became determined to participate so I could show the world what organ donation makes possible. I won medals in track and field and helped lead my team to gold in volleyball in the past two Transplant Games events. This summer, I will travel to Madison, Wis., for the 2010 National Kidney Foundation U.S. Transplant Games, July 30-August 4, where I will once again compete in track and field, racquetball and volleyball. Please tell your readers about the Games. For more information,

and to learn about organ donation, they can contact the National Kidney Foundation at 1-800622-9010 or visit transplantgames.org -- Holly Miyagawa, California Dear Holly: We are happy to tell our readers about the transplant games and hope they will contact the National Kidney Foundation. We wish you the best of luck breaking your record from last year. Dear Annie: This is for “Still Miss Him,” who didn’t want her mother to remarry after Dad died. I had been married for 41 years when my husband passed away after a long illness. Eighteen months later, I met a widower who had been married 46 years. We were together for five years. I do not regret this relationship, as he gave me everything my first husband couldn’t. He was a loving and devoted man and filled every corner of my life with great memories. I will miss him forever. Please tell that daughter to be happy for her mother. A second chance at life doesn’t always come around. -- Life Is for the Living Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
