Residents voice concerns about posting rezoning By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer

5Having a ball

SEVIERVILLE — The debate over how planning officials should notify neighbors if a nearby property is set to be rezoned was rekindled this week as one county official complained not enough is done currently, saying she only found out about one such petition near her home a short time before the County Commission meeting. Commissioner Judy Godfrey said she wasn’t the only one on Seymour’s Pearl Road who hadn’t heard land accessed by the narrow two-lane road was up for commercial consideration. She opposed the move from residential for the former farm plot and suggested others in the area would have come out to do the same if they had more notice about the proposed switch. This isn’t the first time the question of how far the county’s planning staff should go in trying to inform neighbors has been raised at a County Commission meeting, with the results of the last such discussion the introduction of a sign placed on properties set for rezoning votes. However, it appears there may have been some confusion about even that measure in the case of the request for a new designation for the land that fronts Maryville Highway in the 200 block and Pearl Road. “We did not have knowledge this was going to be rezoned,” Godfrey said, complaining there was only one sign put up for the five lots set to be rezoned, all of which are owned by one family. “We could probably have every neighbor out here. Nobody wants it to be rezoned.” Specifically, Godfrey worried any commercial development on the land might use Pearl Road to access the site, something she believes the road isn’t capable of handling. Though other commissioners assured her any site plan would have to be approved by the Planning Commission

By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer The Sevier County Humane Society is hosting an Appreciation Day for the community from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday at Kroger on Highway 66. “This is something we started last year,” said Jayne Vaughan, executive director of the humane society. “It’s our way of thanking the community for their support.” Free hot dogs and chips will be served, and information about animals eligible for adoption and upcoming humane society events will be available as well. “It’s also an opportunity to shop for items at Kroger to donate to the shelter,” Vaughan said. “We will have a list of needed items. Of course, that isn’t necessary — this event is to thank our supporters.” Vaughan said spring and summer — breeding season — is a challenging time for the animal shelter. “We’re still getting a lot of animals. One thing people can do to help us out is to have their animals spayed and neutered. Also, please take extreme measures to protect your animals against the heat. “We are just so thankful for all of our support.” n

UW Shark Race preparation begins to flow By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer GATLINBURG — United Way of Sevier County is gearing up for its seventh annual Great Gatlinburg Shark Race, set for 3 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 25 at Ripley’s Aquarium of the Smokies.

tributing the event’s $10 tickets at Ripley’s Aquarium, Food City, Gatlinburg Welcome Centers and other participating area businesses.

Each ticket purchased will be represented by a rubber shark racing down the river — with the winner awarded $10,000 in cash. “It’s a fun event to watch, and it’s fun to think, ‘I could actually win’ — with no more than 15,000 sharks floating down the river, your odds are better than the lottery,” Newman said.

Along with preparing for the race, Newman has been busy doing “a lot of foundation work” since he started his position with the United Way in May. Having worked with the Boy Scouts of America, one of the many nonprofits that United Way serves, he was very familiar with the organization. “I was used to being a comSee shark race, Page A4

PF Commission will maintain ties with the United Kingdom By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer PIGEON FORGE — People all across the United Kingdom will have the opportunity to dream about a Smoky Mountain vacation thanks to a Monday vote by the City Commission. The group opted to continue a partnership with the state’s Department of Tourist Development that allows it to pay a relatively small amount to get a huge presence in England and its neighboring Northern Ireland territory. For several years, the city has worked through the state to contract with Lofthouse Enterprises, a travel trade representative in England. That company in turn places advertisements in publications across the kingdom, from newspapers to hundreds of travel magazines. They also pitch story ideas to reporters that relate to Pigeon Forge and, of course, the much-loved namesake of Dollywood, Dolly Parton. City tourism officials report impressive results from the effort. “When Pigeon Forge began participating in the UK Co-op Marketing Program 15 years ago, there was little to no awareness of Pigeon Forge as a vacation destination in the UK,� Department of Tourism Director Leon Downey told the commissioners. “I am happy to report that is no longer the case.� The metrics provided by the company show the investment is providing results, with 48 tour operators using their catalogues to promote the city now. Additionally, the city has received a host of media coverage that it otherwise would not have gotten, Downey said. “The growth has been incredible,� Department of Tourism Marketing Manager Sue Carr said. The city’s dollar is extended through the cooperation with the state, which pays the lion’s share of the bill for the advertising, Carr said. State officials view the partnership not only as a way to promote the state as a destination but to recruit new tax dollars by marketing its cities and attractions. From the money the city pays, $10,000 goes to pay for participation in the program, while $10,000 goes

directly to the marketing company to pay for its part of the advertising. Each participant — with the cities of Nashville, Memphis and Chattanooga also part of the effort — pays into the pool that funds the program, Carr said. Pigeon Forge is the only city in the county that takes part in the initiative, a fact that pleased members of the audience and the board during Monday’s meeting. “I think it’s a great way to promote and market the city around the world,� Vice Mayor Kevin McClure said. During the session, the group also voted to approve: n Ordinance 910 amending Ordinance 894 Annual Appropriations for Fiscal Year 2009-2010 (second reading) n Ordinance 911 amending Section 407.3.1 “Planned Unit Development — General Requirements — Minimum Site� of the Zoning Ordinance (second reading) n Ordinance 912 amending Sections 20-404 and 20-405 of the Municipal Code on the Citizens Advisory Board of Directors and the functions of that group n A request from the Fire Department to trade fire hose couplings for new fire hoses n Accepting a grant from the U.S. Department of the Interior in the amount of $18,244 for rural fire assistance to purchase reflective vests and fire shelters for the Fire Department n Purchase of a lane maintenance machine for the bowling center from Bowling Supply Company for $22,995 with the trade-in of a Phoenix Lane Machine n Purchase of salt for the Street Department at a price of $71.71 per ton from North American Salt Company n Purchase of uniforms for Public Works from Whole Armor Uniform at a piece-meal rate n A request from Sherwood Forest Resort for the acceptance of the development into the city’s water system n Reappointing Ray Ogle, Ken Bell, Leslie Thomas and Laurie Faulkner to the Tourism Advisory Board n Contributing $5,000 to the school system in support of the 2nd Annual Smoky Mountain Football Jamboree. n

Garden Inn joins Chamber in picking up trash on Spur Submitted Report GATLINBURG — The Gatlinburg Chamber of Commerce Foundation is helping to keep the Spur between Gatlinburg and Pigeon Forge clean and litter-free through its Adopt-A-Spur efforts. Due to the construction and repaving on the Spur throughout 2008, this program was halted, but restarted through the Gatlinburg Goes Green program. Businesses are sending volunteers to help Chamber staff to pick up litter along the Spur once a month. “We are so excited that our business community has stepped up to the plate to help us reinstitute such an important program. It is through this program that we are able to see tangible results to our concerns for the national park and its well being,� said Chamber Executive Director Vicki Simms.

Logan Coykendall, Kris Reagan and Tony Jovee of Hilton Garden Inn joined Chamber staff for the second time recently to clean the portion of the Spur that stretches from the Gatlinburg Welcome Center to the beginning of town. More volunteers are needed for the second Tuesday of the month through 2010. The Gatlinburg Goes Green program is in its third year. In 2009, the Chamber reached its goal of having 75 percent of its membership enrolled, and Gatlinburg Goes Green has been making huge strides in 2010 with more than 10 percent actively enrolled at the Bronze level or higher. For more information about Gatlinburg Goes Green or to volunteer for an Adopt-A-Spur shift, contact Erin Moran at the Chamber of Commerce at 436-4178, or e-mail to erin@gatlinburg. com.

Blago jurors agree on 2 counts By MICHAEL TARM Associated Press Writer CHICAGO — Jurors in the corruption trial of former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich said Thursday that they have reached agreement on just two of 24 counts against him, and haven’t even begun discussing 11 of the counts. The judge quickly said he would tell them to go back and deliberate more. The exchange once again left the courtroom in a state of uncertainty, with lawyers and legal experts saying there is no way to know for sure how long the deliberations may go on — but some saying the apparent deadlocks on some counts were a good sign for Blagojevich and his co-defendant brother, Robert. The 11 counts the jury has yet to discuss involve wire fraud. Most of them deal with FBI wiretap recordings and the allegation that Blagojevich tried to sell or trade President Barack Obama’s old Senate seat. The jurors did not say which two of the 24 counts they had agreed on, nor what their decision was. Former state appellate Judge David Erickson said the jury’s apparent deadlock on 11 counts looks good for the defense. He said if a panel of 12 jurors can’t come to an agreement, it shows some have

Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich and wife Patti left, leave their house to go to Federal Court in Chicago on Thursday. doubts that prosecutors made their case. “To this point, if we were keeping score, I think the defense strategy worked spectacularly,” said Erickson, now a law professor in Chicago. The defense did not call a single witness, including the former governor himself, and argued that Blagojevich was a big talker, but never committed a crime. Erickson said when judges tell jurors to deliberate more, they often return quickly with a verdict. Others believe the jury may need some time to work through the remain-

ing counts. “It’s impossible to decide what it is the jury is saying,” Richard Kling, a professor at ChicagoKent College of Law, told WLS-TV. “If they haven’t addressed the wire fraud counts, we’re going to be here until next week.” Joel Levin, a former federal prosecutor, said one major question is why the jury has not even discussed any of the wire fraud counts. He said jurors may feel they can’t discuss that until they decide on other charges. But he said it could just as easily be one or two jurors are “really digging

their heels in” on other counts and the jury has just not gotten to the wire fraud counts. He said what is particularly baffling is that there have been no notes of substance to the judge throughout deliberations. “Given they’ve accomplished virtually nothing you would have thought we’d heard something,” he said. Blagojevich did not comment after the hearing. But asked as he felt it was good news for his client, Blagojevich attorney Sam Adam Sr. responded, “I don’t know. I’ve learned a long time ago not to guess

nation/world briefs Governor debate set for Oct. 7

KNOXVILLE (AP) — The University of Tennessee’s Howard H. Baker Center for Public Policy has announced it will host a gubernatorial debate Oct. 7. The center said Wednesday that Republican nominee Bill Haslam and Democratic nominee Mike McWherter have accepted invitations. WBIR-TV in Knoxville will be a partner in the debate, which will originate from Cox Auditorium in Alumni Memorial Hall. According to a news release from the Baker Center, several stations across the state will join in a simulcast. The election is Nov. 2.

Gay marriages put on hold

SAN FRANCISCO (AP) — A federal judge on Thursday put gay marriages on hold for at least another six days in California, raising hopes among same-sex couples that they soon will be able to tie the knot after years of agonizing delays. Judge Vaughn Walker gave opponents of samesex weddings until Aug. 18 at 5 p.m. to get a ruling from the 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals on whether gay marriage should resume. Gay marriages could happen at that point or be put off indefinitely depending on how the court rules. Walker struck down the state’s voter-approved gay marriage ban last week in a case many believe is destined for the Supreme Court.

Gitmo inmate ‘proud’ of slaying

GUANTANAMO BAY NAVAL BASE, Cuba (AP) — A Canadian former child soldier told jailers he comforted himself in his first days at Guantanamo by thinking about killing an American soldier, military prosecutors said Thursday in opening arguments at the war-crimes trial of the youngest inmate at the detention center. Toronto-born Omar

Khadr, who was 15 when he was captured in 2002, is accused of throwing a grenade that killed a Delta Force medic after a firefight in Afghanistan. “Omar Khadr is a terrorist, trained by al-Qaida to murder Sgt. 1st Class Christopher Speer,” prosecutor Jeff Groharing told a jury of U.S. military officers inside a hilltop courthouse at this U.S. Navy base in southeast Cuba. “He said when he first arrived at Guantanamo, thinking about killing an American would make him feel better,” Groharing said. “When asked what he was most proud of in his life, he said conducting the operations against the Americans.”

Serial stabbing suspect nabbed

ATLANTA (AP) — A suspect in a string of 18 stabbings that terrorized people across three states and left five dead was arrested in front of startled passengers at an airport gate as he tried to board a plane for Israel, officials said Thursday.

A judge in Flint, Mich., where the attacks began in late May, signed a warrant Thursday charging Elias Abuelazam, 33, with assault with intent to murder in connection with a July 27 stabbing. Antwione Marshall, 26, of Flint, the victim of that attack, told The Associated Press that the FBI visited him at 3 a.m. to show him a picture of the man arrested in Atlanta, and he identified him as the assailant.

Tobacco shipments to resume to soldiers overseas NASHVILLE (AP) — The U.S. Postal Service said Thursday that it plans to resume shipping care packages with cigarettes and other tobacco to soldiers serving in Iraq and Afghanistan. A law aimed at preventing smuggling had unintentionally banned families from sending tobacco to military members serving overseas. Spokesman Greg Frey said the postal service is

and the group could require access off Maryville Highway rather than the residential road, Godfrey still rejected the plan, saying commercial development wouldn’t fit in the area. Her questions may have been spurred in part by the fact it’s not really clear what’s planned for the 14.53-acre site. Realtor Marty Loveday, who is set to be sworn in as a commissioner at the start of next month, told the group he’s representing potential buyers for the property who have not made their hopes for it clear to him. Loveday also pushed back against Godfrey, saying worries about the road weren’t the commission’s concern Monday. “The issue tonight is just the zoning,� he insisted. Apparently the problem arose because neighbors saw the one sign and did not realize all five lots were set to rezoned. Beyond that, the notice was posted on Maryville Highway, a route residents of Pearl Road don’t use to access their properties. Even with those concerns, it seemed the county’s planning staff was being punished for going beyond what is required of them. State law only mandates that the office advertise such requests in a paper of general local circulation. In Sevier County that means a legal notice that includes a map of the site set for consideration printed in

planning to issue new instructions that could allow shipments to resume possibly as soon as Aug. 27. The Prevent All Cigarette Trafficking Act of 2009 quietly took effect June 29 and was created to prevent minors from ordering cigarettes through the mail. It allowed for small shipments of tobacco but required a way to verify the recipient was old enough — meaning the only way to ship the pack-

The Mountain Press at least a month before the meeting. That didn’t fill the need for notice according to the Seymour commissioners, though. “NoteverybodyinSeymour subscribes to The Mountain Press,� Commissioner Bill Oakes said. The newspaper makes legal ads available on its free Web site and copies of the hardcopy edition are available at the Seymour Public Library each day. Despite having done more than he’s directed to by law, County Planner Jeff Ownby conceded a sign should have been posted on the Pearl Road lot in addition to along Maryville Highway. “It’s our mistake, we should have put a sign on the back property,� Ownby said. “It won’t happen again. I think we’re doing as much as we can to make people aware, though.� Even that promise didn’t go far enough, it seems, with Seymour Commissioner Buster Norton asking if the staff could send out a notice to the representatives for the district when a property is set to be rezoned there. In the end, Ownby agreed to a suggestion from County Mayor Larry Waters that he provide a copy of the Planning Commission’s agenda to each commissioner. “It’s not a problem at all if that’s what you direct us to do,� Ownby said. “I would like that,� Godfrey said. Commissioner Kenneth Whaley made a motion that

Mexican workers for TDOT contractor claim being abused SMYRNA (AP) — A Mexican guest worker says a landscaping company with Tennessee state contracts and a federal stimulus loan guarantee held him and fellow workers like indentured servants, confiscating their passports and subjecting them to constant surveillance by managers who were often armed. Hilario Razura Jimenez said in an interview that he was rescued from Vanderbilt Landscaping’s company housing Wednesday night by staff from the Alliance of Guestworkers for Dignity. He waited until everyone else was asleep before sneaking out at about midnight, he said. Staff with the New Orleans-based nonprofit were in touch with him by text message and drove out to pick him up. Alliance executive director Saket Soni said company officials last week put another worker on a bus back to Mexico when they learned that he had been talking with their group. A person who answered the phone at the company on Thursday said he would not comment on the allegations and refused to give his name. The company, which has $2.4 million in state Transportation Department contracts and a $900,000 a stimulus loan guarantee from the U.S. Department of Agriculture, has offices in Smyrna and Mason.

Jimenez said he has come to the U.S. on an H2B guestworker visa twice before. Both times the pay and conditions were exploitative, but he came again because he was desperate. The 35-year-old comes from the town of Ruiz in Nayarit, Mexico, and supports his wife and three children on what he can earn picking tobacco and beans. “I’m suffering here, but (my family) in Mexico, they’re OK. The little I send keeps them from going without,” he said in Spanish. “But there comes a point where you get fed up and say, ’Enough!”’ At the company housing in Smyrna, 13 or 14 people are lodged in a small house with one bathroom and no beds, Jimenez said. Workers built their own beds, he said. They each pay $100 a month rent, which is deducted from their pay. They routinely were driven to the office at 6 a.m. and sometimes did not return until 8 p.m., but were not paid for any of the time spent waiting for assignments, going between the office and worksites or cleaning and maintaining the equipment, Jimenez said. Paychecks were often for only about 25 hours of work a week. Jimenez said he had to borrow money to come to the U.S. and last year he did not earn enough to pay back what he had borrowed.

Slow and steady wins the race.” The United Way of Sevier County’s fundraising campaign kick-off is set for Aug. 26. “People still wonder, ‘What does United Way do?’ My challenge is to sum up what its 20-plus charities and organizations do. It’s important to keep them funded — every one of these nonprofits has a story,” he said. “With $10 tickets for the Shark Race, probably anyone could afford to help out. The overall mission of United Way is to mobilize the caring power of community.” Along with $10,000 cash, participants have a chance to win five other “fabulous prizes:”

The first runner-up will receive a seven-day, six night Smoky Mountain vacation package; second runner-up, 35-carat amethyst; third runnerup, $350 Walmart gift card; and fourth runner-up, VIP amusement package for six people to Sevierville, Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg area attractions. All proceeds of the Shark Race benefit United Way of Sevier County. Participants must be 18 years old but do not have to be present to win. Tickets can also be ordered online at www.

As a result of the inves- able on the Internet at tigation, the company agreed to correct the errors, make back payments and institute new record-keeping procedures to ensure employees now are paid correctly according to federal law. The Fair Labor Standards Act requires that covered employees be paid at least the federal minimum wage of $7.25 for all hours worked, plus time and one-half their regular rates of pay, including commissions, bonuses and incentive pay, for hours worked beyond 40 per week. Employers must also maintain accurate time and payroll records. For more information about this investigation, call the Wage and Hour Division’s Jacksonville District Office at 904-

police department, fire station and rescue crew in the county was merely a drill, meant to hone their skills in the unlikely event they encounter such circumstances. Officials overseeing the effort weren’t giving out too many details about the exact nature of the scenario, preferring to keep that information close to their reflector-studded vests. Still, they feel confident they’re now ready to deal with an emergency that requires a response from every angle, fire to law enforcement. “A lot of different emergency response assets are up here working on different tactical assignments,” Pigeon Forge Fire Department Chief Tony Watson said. “We’re getting some really good reviews on how our teams are doing. This has been a very good learning process. I’m really proud of all the folks involved.” Watson chaired the committee that planned the event, which started at 6:30 a.m. and wrapped up around lunchtime. He said staging that kind of fake emergency takes months of planning and coordination that included checking to ensure the work would take place at a time when all those police cars and fire trucks wouldn’t cause too much distraction. They did that by scheduling the training for the week when the Community Center is closed for regular maintenance, which also happened to mean the nearby Pigeon Forge High School would be available for them to

hold an early-morning information session in. Of course, it happens that summer vacation for local students happens to come at the same time for others, which meant hotels that face the Community Center were full of visitors. To prepare them for what was coming, officers with the Pigeon Forge Police Department alerted the front desk staff about the training and papered the walls with fliers announcing it to keep people from panicking, Watson said. To keep the drill authentic, the officers even went through the motions of evacuating the buildings, though none of the sleeping visitors had any idea the work had already started. The day started as the emergency itself played out, responders rushing to secure the scene and track down the perpetrator. Hazardous materials, fire and rescue crews quickly followed, working to treat the wounded and keep the situation from getting out of hand. Since the incident exposed the possibility of wastewater and other materials getting into the nearby Little Pigeon River, they called in officials from both the county’s and city’s stormwater management departments to help manage the response. Finally, the patients were taken to LeConte Medical Center, where emergency department staffers were also completing their own required annual training. In the midst of it all, a mobile command unit, a trailer fitted with special equipment that allows emergency responders to coordi-

nate their efforts from one central point, sat throughout the exercises. For the day, though, part of the little structure was filled with 911 dispatchers who were radioing out calls for the scenario on a special line. That move was made so that those who listen to police scanners, from curious citizens to members of the media, didn’t hear the scenario play out and panic the town into thinking a real emergency was underway. Representatives of police and fire departments in each of the county’s cities took part in the activities, as did members of the Sevier County, Waldens Creek and Wears Valley volunteer fire departments, the Sevier County Rescue Squad, Tennessee Emergency Management, Sevier County Emergency Management, Tennessee Highway Patrol and Sevier County Ambulance Service. Officials who oversaw the event think it served its purpose. “The goal is that everyone will come out of this with something their department can improve on and with some new knowledge about dealing with these situations, and I think that’s been accomplished,” Sevier County Emergency Management Agency Director John Mathews said. n

Lottery Numbers

Elvis Week hits stride in Memphis MEMPHIS (AP) — Elvis Presley is in play. CKx Inc., owner of the “American Idol” television program and 85 percent of Elvis Presley Enterprises, is mulling at least two offers to buy the company. At the same time, thousands of Elvis fans have descended on Memphis for Elvis Week, the annual commemoration of the American music icon’s life and death. CKx owns rights to the name, image and likeness of Elvis Presley and the operations of Graceland,

Presley’s Memphis mansion. While the “American Idol” franchise is the company’s main money maker, the Elvis brand is still an earner. Elvis, who died in 1977, generated more than $60 million last year in revenue from royalties, licensing and Graceland’s operations. Two faces familiar to CKx have offered to buy it: Robert Sillerman, the company’s former CEO, and Simon Fuller, the British media mogul who created the “Idol” franchise before selling his company, 19




Youth, 15, killed; companion hurt

Police in Knoxville are investigating a shooting that killed one teen and wounded another. Knoxville Police Capt. Gary Holliday said Thursday that 15-year-old Demonte Bledsoe was killed and 17-year-old Jerrell Davis had a bullet wound to the arm in the shooting Wednesday night in a parking lot. Both teens went to West High School where Bledsoe had been on the football team until he was dismissed for missing practices in the spring.

Entertainment, to CKx in 2005. Sillerman’s offer, made public Wednesday, values the company at between $512 million and $535 million. In an SEC filing, Sillerman said he plans to offer between $5.50 and $5.75 per share for at least another 30 percent worth of CKx on top of the 21 percent he already holds. A sale is not expected to significantly affect the Elvis business, which grew 10 percent in 2009 compared with the year

before. “There is upside and growth to Elvis, and I think anybody who would buy it is someone who’s going to come in and believe they can take it to the next level,” CKx CEO Michael G. Ferrel said. Elvis Presley Enterprises currently has 260 licensees, including SiriusXM, American Greetings and Mattel. Last year’s revenue from licensing and royalties rose 34 percent compared with 2008.

Pat Tillman

NEW YORK (AP) — Pat Tillman’s mother doesn’t want any more congressional hearings or official inquiries. M a r y Tillman still doesn’t believe she’s been given anything close to satisfactory answers as Tillman to how her son died, or why the circumstances of his death were reported incorrectly for so long. But she knows it’s unhealthy to keep pushing, and Pat wouldn’t have wanted that for his family. If new information were to come out because of the documentary being released this month, the Tillmans would take up the cause again. They just hope the film spreads the message of who Pat really was.

Right teacher for children to be treasured By Harvey Brown Jr. Guest columnist Besides my own mother, the most important “other woman” in my life before age 12 was Mrs. Sorrells. I had seen her on the first day of school and immediately was attracted to her. Mrs. Sorrells taught fourth grade at Pearl Stephens Elementary School in my hometown. My older sister had been in her class, and I knew that I wanted to be in her class too when I grew up. My dreams came true when I received notice of my room assignment for fourth grade. And my heart leaped just a little bit when, upon leaving school that first hot day in September, Mrs. Sorrells leaned over and gave me a hug as I walked out the door. That year was probably the best in my life. Mrs. Sorrells had a marvelous way of making the world around us interesting. She challenged us to find answers for ourselves and planted within our young minds the desire to learn even more. There was something special about Mrs. Sorrells. Not only did she have beautiful silver hair and eyes that sparkled like little lights in a crystal chandelier, but I think she genuinely loved every child in that school. That even included kids like Speedy Cramer and me. Although there were times when, as an active, wiggly, and somewhat squirrelly 9-year-old, I would take her patience to the limit, there was never any doubt that I was a person of special worth. And I always received from her maximum caring and the best preparation and teaching effort possible. In watching the hundreds of youngsters march off to school again this year, I find myself offering a prayer for them. I pray that every little boy and girl will discover a Mrs. (or Mr.) Sorrells in their classroom. These will be dedicated professional educators who combine the very best in teaching methodology with massive doses of love. Little folks may not have Ph.Ds in psychology, but they certainly can tell who really cares. All the competence in the world can be erased by negativity or aloofness towards these kids. I have four grown children who have logged a total of 51 years in public schools. In that time I have found faculties and administrations that were superb. Sure, there have been some rough spots; yet I am convinced that educators genuinely try to put the kids’ best interests first. But the teachers need our help and support. I encourage you to do some things to see that your children’s teachers know that you are behind them. Get to know the teachers. Don’t wait until there is a problem or an issue to make yourself known. Volunteer to go on field trips or assist in the classroom on a special project. Parents may find it well worthwhile to spend a day of vacation or annual leave to go with little Billy Bob’s class to the museum. It’s great parentchild time. Be sure to attend open house, PTA or PTO, improvement committee meetings and teacher conferences. This shows that you care about your kids — and the school. And finally, pray for your children, the school and their teachers. There’s probably nothing more important that you could do. And it has lasting effects for all involved. School is back in session with great kids, great teachers, and great opportunities to shape young lives. All of us have an important part to play. I think Mrs. Sorrells would probably agree. — Dr. Harvey Brown Jr. is president of Impact Ministries Inc. in Pigeon Forge. E-mail to hbrown@


A day to be wary Millions of people still live in fear of Friday the 13th Avoid the temptation for risky behavior today, if you believe the legend of Friday the 13th. Some people probably do, while others just regard the whole phobia as amusing and silly. So why do so many people face such a day with a little bit of dread and fear? Theories abound. According to Wikipedia, there is no written evidence of a “Friday the 13th” superstition before the 19th century. The earliest known documented reference in English occurs in an 1869 biography of Gioachino Rossini; he regarded Friday as an unlucky day, and 13 as an unlucky number. He died on Friday, the 13th of November. One theory states that it is a combination of two older superstitions: that 13 is an unlucky number and that Friday is an unlucky day. In numerology, the number 12 is

considered the number of completeness, as reflected in the 12 months of the year, 12 signs of the zodiac, 12 hours of the clock, 12 tribes of Israel, 12 Apostles of Jesus, 12 gods of Olympus, etc., whereas the number 13 was considered irregular. There is also a superstition, thought by some to derive from the Last Supper or a Norse myth, that having 13 people seated at a table will result in the death of one of the diners. Friday has been considered an unlucky day at least since the 14th century’s “The Canterbury Tales.” Black Friday has been associated with stock market crashes and other disasters since the 1800s. It has also been suggested that Friday is an unlucky day because the Bible says Jesus was crucified on a Friday. Jesus died on a Friday and there were 13 people at the last

supper. According to the Stress Management Center and Phobia Institute in Asheville, N.C., an estimated 17 million to 21 million people in the United States are affected by a fear of this day, called friggatriskaidekaphobia and triskaidekaphobia. Some people are so paralyzed by fear that they avoid their normal routines in doing business, taking flights or even getting out of bed. It can affect business transactions, travel plans and decision-making. The fear is real in many people, even if the reality doesn’t match it. Our advice: Do what you usually do today. Don’t let the myths and superstitions associated with Friday the 13th scare you or thwart your plans. But just to be safe, don’t walk under ladders and do avoid black cats, Tempting fate, you know. ...

Public forum Odd names of places, things encountered when traveling

Editor: My husband John and I get quite a few laughs over the names and titles people give to places and things, many of which we see on our travels with Missionaries for Christ. Some of our favorite in Tennessee: Boogertown, Frog Alley, SeeWee and we find a lot of humor in our home church being named Gum Stand, and our pastor being named Ronald Reagan, and that he lives on Lost Branch Road. Rest assured, he is not lost and the branch is definitely attached to the vine. In Florida, there’s Kissimmee and Yee Haw Junction, and somewhere there’s a Stinkin’ Creek. In Georgia, there’s a Dug Down Baptist Church on Dug Down Road. Arkansas has Yellsville and Toadsuck, a town named Fourty Six and Fifty Six. John wanted to take me to Crazy Woman

Cafe in Wyoming. He thought that was my kind of place. I suggested he take a flying leap into Crazy Woman Creek. There’s Hangman’s Draw in Arizona and the town. No Name, in Colorado. Our list of names is long and still growing. Smyrna is our latest addition. A pastor friend of ours was telling us he was going to be preaching at Smyrna Baptist Church. “Smyrna, I said. “What an unusual sounding name. Is it named after a town?” This preacher friend looked at me in an odd way so I thought I needed to explain myself. “It does sound strange to me,” I said, and I sounded out the name slowly, “Suh-mmr-na. I think it sounds like a town the Smurfs would come from.” Now that preacher was really looking at me strangely. I asked, “You know what Smurfs are, don’t you? Those little cartoon people.” “I know what Smurfs are, but Smyrna is the second church out of the seven churches in the Book of Revelation,” he said.

“Really? Smyrna?” I asked, a little bit embarrassed. “I don’t remember seeing it? How do you spell it?” I was hoping it was one of those tough Biblical names that was pronounced easy enough after you heard it a time or two. He spelled it and then informed me I could find it in the second book of Revelation. Boy, was I feeling dumber by the minute. Smurfs, of all the crazy things I could say. I bet that preacher figured I needed a lot of help and was praying for me all the way home. I got my Bible out and, sure enough, there Smyrna was. How many times have I read over it? How many sermons have I heard that were based on those Seven Churches? The name just never registered in the memory bank. Well, it’s there now, and I doubt I’ll ever forget it. (Smurfs, this has to be added to the top of my “Dumbest Things I Ever Said” list.) Sharon Sutton Pigeon Forge

Are you ready for some football? Local teams show their stuff tonight in annual high school jamboree at SCHS SEVIERVILLE — Are you ready for some football? If you’re an American, surely you are. For a lot of us in this country the sport of football is like a natural antidepressant, especially during times such as these with a continuing national economic crisis such as ours. Tonight will surely prove that to be true locally when four county programs — and all of their fans — converge upon Burchfield Stadium at Sevier County High School at 7 p.m. for the second-annual Smoky Mountain Kickoff Jamboree. My advice, get there early because the parking lot may turn into a madhouse late with so many fans of so many teams in

attendance. The Gatlinburg-Pittman Highlanders, Pigeon Forge Tigers, Seymour Eagles and the hosting Smoky Bears will be represented at the event, along with the freshmen squads from Seymour and SCHS, and the junior varsity squads from all four county high schools. When the local teams decided to start a local football jamboree last season, we in the sports department at The Mountain Press thought it was a great idea. Not only does holding

the event locally allow for old county rivalries to be renewed for at least a quarter of play, but also helps the school system pay for catastrophic insurance coverage for all county athletic programs throughout the school year. It’s a winwin situation, and it saves a lot of gas money for local football fans versus driving to places like Alcoa and Heritage high schools. And that’s money those fans may use to purchase official jamboree T-shirts to show support for their favorite team, as well as help pay for the local athletes’ always-rising insurance costs. And what would football be without cheerleaders? So no worries in that See FOOTBALL, Page A11

Consistency a must for Brewer’s Smoky Bears Young squad still working out the kinks By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor

Tiger Woods hits a drive on the sixth hole during the first round of the PGA Championship golf tournament Thursday, Aug. 12, 2010, at Whistling Straits in Haven, Wis.

After hot start, Tiger back with the pack at PGA Championship By NANCY ARMOUR AP National Writer SHEBOYGAN, Wis. — With a quick return to the top of the leaderboard, Tiger Woods seemed to be restoring some order to the golf world. By the end of the afternoon, Woods was sliding down that board and the PGA Championship was a free-for-all — like everything else in golf these days. Bubba Watson and Francesco Molinari took the early lead at the PGA on Thursday, shooting 4-under 68s after the tournament finally got under way following a three-hour fog delay. Jason Day and Ryan Moore are a stroke back. Woods, who had birdies on three of his first four holes, is at 1 under

after closing with a birdie on the final hole. Phil Mickelson, who could take the world No. 1 ranking from Woods this week, teed off late Thursday afternoon and birdied his first hole. The four-time major winner is unlikely to finish his round Thursday after tee times were pushed back 3 hours and 10 minutes because of fog that shrouded Whistling Straits. “I played too good not to shoot under par, and it would have been very disappointing and frustrating to end up at even par as well as I played today,” Woods said. “To shoot under par just feels like less than I should have shot for the way I played today, and that’s a good feeling.” Seeing Woods atop the

leaderboard so early at a tournament, even a major, wouldn’t ordinarily count as big news. But there is nothing ordinary about Woods these days. His personal life has started to “normalize” after months of tawdry details about his rampant infidelities. But he arrived at Whistling Straits fresh off the worst performance of his career, shooting a whopping 18-over 298 and beating only one player in the 80-man field at Firestone — a course where he’s won seven times. He’s broken par in only four of his last 20 rounds, and is in danger of losing the No. 1 ranking he’s held for a record 270 weeks in a row. See TIGER, Page A11

SEVIERVILLE — Coach Steve Brewer constantly stresses consistency with his football teams. This past Tuesday night, the coach saw what could be this year’s biggest hurdle — achieving it. “At times we looked good, at times bad,” the coach said of his team’s scrimmage with Knox West. On one hand, the Bears offense flashed moments of deadly efficiency — drilling receivers in stride for big gains, quarterback scrambles for first downs and running backs gashing the opposing offense — but, at other times, the Bears offense looked off — with QB pressure, penalties and interceptions resulting. “It’s the thing that we’ve been harping on — we’ve got to be consistent,” Brewer said in the Bears’ field house Friday. “That’s what we’re lacking right now. Sometimes on both sides of the ball we do things well, and then — it could be next series, we don’t have a clue.” It’s something the young squad has been battling all camp, according to the coach. “We’d play very well (at camp at McCallie School), and then we’d hit stretches where I didn’t know if I recognized that bunch,” Brewer said. The biggest reason for the inconsistency is that this team had a lot of turnover from last year’s squad. “We’ve got a lot of positions to fill from last year,” Brewer said. “And the preseason’s quickly coming to an end.” Seven of the Bears’ 11 offensive starters gradu-

“Sometimes on both sides of the ball we do things well, and then — it could be next series, we don’t have a clue.” Steve Brewer, SCHS head coach

ated, leaving only running back Dakota Cogdill, wide receivers Bryant Gilson and Brett Pippin and center Dustin McGill with any starting experience. “I think the biggest challenge this team has is playing together,” Brewer said. “That team last year, those guys had played together for so long. We’ve got a different mixture this year, they’re going to have to play together and their mindset has to be there. “Last year’s bunch did not like to lose. And I think that’s one thing that carried us through some of the close games that we had, that they didn’t want to lose. And that mindset can propel you in tight situations.” The coach said he sees the potential for this year’s team to develop that never-say-die attitude. “I think this group has got enough kids that have the same kind of mindset, but we’ve got to have everybody doing that. “I think that’s the two

biggest challenges we face — playing together, with people stepping up and making contributions and good role-players that come through when they’re called on, and we’ve got to come ready to play. We can’t come out there and just be halfway. We’ve got to come ready to play.” One big positive for the Bears heading into next week’s opening game against the William Blount Governors is that the team is mostly healthy. “We’ve got some people this time of year, having gone through the scrimmages, that are bruised and banged up,” Brewer said. “But we’ve really come through the preseason really fortunate.” Cogdill, who also plays a big role on the Bears’ defense at linebacker has a rib injury, and will sit out the jamboree tonight. He is expected to be ready for the opener.

Smokies win 8th End of an era? Braves 3B Jones likely out for year with knee woes straight 2-0 Dolis and Co. combine for 6-hitter SEVIERVILLE — Having outscored the Huntsville Stars 45-12 through the first four games of this week’s series at Smokies Park, the Tennessee Smokies proved they could also win a close one. Rafael Dolis and two relievers combined on a six-hitter to shutout the Stars 2-0 Wednesday night, the Smokies’s eighth win in a row, putting them to 29-16 in the season’s second half (72-43 overall) and six games ahead of the Stars in the Southern League North Division’s second-half race. Dolis came into Wednesday’s series finale having allowed just one earned run the past two starts and 10 innings of work. He carried that momentum Wednesday, scattering five hits over five innings of work, striking out five and walking two. Tennessee struck quickly in the second inning to give Dolis a one-run lead. After Blake Lalli started off the frame with a double off Huntsville starter Wily Peralta (0-1), he scored on a throwing error by Huntsville 3B Taylor

Green. Green’s throw to first on Robinson Chirinos was off target, allowing Lalli to score from second. Dolis gave way to reliever Marco Carrillo in the sixth, and the pitcher was brilliant in two innings of relief work, holding Huntsville hitless and striking out three to preserve Tennessee’s slim lead. Another Huntsville error in the bottom of the seventh led to the Smokies’ second run of the game. With Chirinos on first, Matt Spencer reached on a force attempt at second by Huntsville second baseman Brett Lawrie. Lawrie’s throw to second went awry, however, advancing Spencer and Chirinos to second and third respectively. The Stars got Chirinos out on a steal attempt at home, but Spencer scored on a Marwin Gonzalez RBI single to put Tennessee up 2-0. The two-run lead was more than enough for Blake Parker (S, 1), who struck out four batters over the final two frames to pick up his first save of the year. On the night, Dolis (3-2), Carrillo and Parker struck out 12 Stars hitters and walked just three. From submitted reports

By PAUL NEWBERRY AP Sports Writer ATLANTA — Chipper Jones may have played his last game in the major leagues after tearing up his left knee while fielding a ground ball. The Atlanta Braves said Thursday that the 38-yearold third baseman tore his anterior cruciate ligament and will need surgery. The estimated recovery time is six months — if Jones decides to return in 2011. He had already said he would consider retirement after a season that’s now ended sooner than expected. Jones was hurt in Tuesday night’s game at Houston. He fielded a routine grounder by Hunter Pence, jumped in the air while making the throw to first, then collapsed to the ground for several minutes. After an MRI exam, Jones met Thursday with the team doctor, Marvin Royster, who delivered the bad news — and a major setback for the NL East leaders. “Obviously, he’s very, very disappointed. I would almost describe it as numb,� his agent, BB Abbott, told The Associated Press. “He knows this will be a big blow to the team. Obviously, he has been going very well recently and felt like he was really contributing to the team’s success. This is real disappointing for him.� Jones feared something

Chipper Jones crushes a pitch in this stock photo from the 2009 season. was seriously wrong after he walked off the field gingerly under his own power. “I heard a distinct pop,� he said in Houston. “It sounded like the whole stadium could hear it pop.� Jones had bounced back from a slow start and was hitting .265 with 10 homers and 46 RBIs for a team that had a 2 1/2-game lead in the NL East on two-time defending league champion Philadelphia. The Braves will have to carry on with Omar Infante and Brooks Conrad sharing third base, though neither has


Jones’ power. Coming off a poor 2009 season, Jones got off to a miserable start this year and said in June that he was considering retirement. A few days later, he backed off and said he would wait until after the season to make a decision. He had been playing much better since then, raising his average some 30 points and showing more power in the middle of the lineup. Now, Jones has another issue to think about — coming back from the second major knee injury of his career. He missed all of 1994, expected to be his

rookie season, after sustaining the same injury to the same knee. Jones returned to become one of the greatest players in Atlanta history, a six-time All-Star who won the NL MVP award in 1999 and the NL batting title in 2008. Recovering from a major injury late in his career would be much tougher, perhaps the biggest factor of all when Jones considers whether he wants to keep playing. He would also have to work out a settlement with the Braves, who owe him about $28 million in guaranteed money for the next two seasons. “I’m sure as the next couple of days go by, those are things we’ll discuss and he’ll discuss with his family,� Abbott said. “It’s not something he’ll decide immediately. He’s going to need to hear everything about the injury and rehabilitative process. He’ll probably make his decision from there. I can assure you it’s not something that’s going to be a knee-jerk decision.� He won’t be around to help the Braves try to hold off Philadelphia for their first playoff appearance since 2005 in the final season for longtime manager Bobby Cox, who’s definitely retiring at the end of the year. “There’s certainly a part of him that feels like he’s let Bobby down, and let his teammates down,� Abbott said. “He’s really distraught about it.�

SPORTS BRIEFS Cueto gets 7-game brawl suspension

NEW YORK (AP) — Cincinnati Reds pitcher Johnny Cueto has been suspended for seven games for his actions during a brawl with the St. Louis Cardinals, and both managers were suspended for two games. Major League Baseball said Thursday that Cueto, Cardinals manager Tony La Russa and Reds manager Dusty Baker also were fined undisclosed amounts. Four other players were fined but not suspended — Cardinals pitcher Chris Carpenter and catcher Yadier Molina, and Reds second baseman Brandon Phillips and relief pitcher Russ Springer. A fight broke out in the first inning of Tuesday’s game in Cincinnati. The Cardinals won the game and swept a three-game series to move into first place in the NL Central. It wasn’t immediately clear if appeals were planned.

NEW YORK (AP) — Mets closer Francisco Rodriguez has been suspended for two days by the team after he was charged with assaulting his father-in-law at a Citi Field family lounge following a game. The suspension is without pay and was announced by the Mets before Thursday’s game against Colorado. Police say Rodriguez was arrested and held at the ballpark and charged with third-degree assault after Wednesday night’s game. His father-in-law was in a hospital with a scraped face and bump on his head. Mets spokesman Jay Horwitz says Rodriguez was questioned by police and the pitcher has been placed on the restricted list for two days. He will not be with the team during that time.

76ers hire Rod Thorn as president

PHILADELPHIA (AP) — The Philadelphia 76ers have hired Rod Thorn as team president. The Sixers also said Thursday that Ed Stefanski will stay as general manager. Stefanski had held both roles since replacing Billy King in December 2007. King succeeded Thorn as New Jersey’s GM last month. Thorn was president and general manager of the Nets for 10 years before leaving in early July. Thorn and Stefanski worked together in New Jersey and helped lead the franchise to consecutive trips to the NBA finals. The Nets lost both times. Sixers chairman Ed Snider says the organization was excited to add one of the NBA’s “top executives.” The Sixers went 27-55 last year and missed the playoffs for the first time in three seasons.

Tennessee Flight Select 9th at national tourney ORLANDO, Fla. — While most 10- and 11-year-old girls take their summers lightly with thoughts of swimming, camping and family vacations on their minds, others work their tails off to achieve national notoriety. The Tennessee Flight Select 10U girls’ AAU basketball team is a group of the latter, and they recently competed to a ninth-place finish at the National Amateur Athletic Union Basketball Tournament in Orlando, Fla., which was the team’s reward for qualifying as sub-state champions in May. The trip to nationals was the final leg in a long summer of tournament play

for the girls, of which three team members are from Sevier County. Upon arrival in Orlando, this first-year team was considered just the third-best from Tennessee, a team with too little experience at such national events to really compete. However, under the helm of head coach Brent Stallings, assistant coaches Andrea Coomer and Katie Parton, and organization director Brandi Stallings, the Select team reached and exceeded their goal of a national top10 finish. “Constant improvement and a willingness to learn,” said coach Stallings, crediting the girls for their 8-1

record at the national tourney. “These young ladies have sacrificed, worked hard and committed themselves to the team in order to bring a national ranking back to East Tennessee.” Local players include Dru Dawson, Ellie Rader and Destiny Wolfe, all of whom attend school at New Center. The Select thanked their sponsors for making the season a reality, including Blalock Companies, Bob and Becky Barnes, BurchfielOverbay & Associates, The Cherokee Group and Citadel Construction, Teddy and Christie Jones, Bill and Lori Moore, and Ron and Jane Rader.

a glimpse of the old Woods. Starting on the back nine, he birdied three of his first four holes and found himself in a share of the lead. But he missed three birdie chances before he made the turn and started spraying shots around the course on his back nine. “It felt good to be a little bit more steady today,” Woods said. But he’s still chasing players he used to beat routinely on his way to 14 major titles, four shy of Jack Nicklaus’ record. The PGA has a history of producing some unexpected winners — this, after all, is where John Daly went from alternate to major champion — but everything seems to be wide open these days. Five of the last six major were won by first-timers, including the U.S. Open (Graeme McDowell) and British Open (Louis Oosthuizen). And, of course, last year’s PGA, where Y.E.

department either, because the spirited girls from all four squads will also be in attendance, cheering on their respective teams and selling souvenir football programs.

Francesco Molinari, first round leader at the PGA Championship

Yang became the first player to beat Woods when he held the 54-hole lead at a major. “You just look at the leaderboard, there’s a lot of different flavor up there,” Day said. Watson, who picked up his first PGA Tour win earlier this year at the Travelers Championship, is one of the tour’s longest hitters. But it was his scrambling ability that paid off on the long, links-style course. “It just keeps the momentum,” Watson said. “If I don’t get upand-down and up-anddown a couple of times today, my momentum could shift. It might not, but it could shift and not go the right direction and I could be made the rest of the day. So I just held it together. I made some key putts that I needed to make, and now I’m

here.” Molinari was stuck around 2 under for most of the afternoon, leaving him tied with brother Edoardo in the battle for high Molinari. But a bogey on No. 4 — his 13th hole — gave him a spark, and he made three birdies over his final five holes. Molinari said McDowell and Oosthuizen’s wins have been an inspiration for the European tour players. It’s a lot easier to imagine himself winning a major championship when he’s seen a couple of his buddies do it. “But still, it’s really, really hard to win a tournament like this,” he said. “I think obviously Tiger is going to get back to his standards and Phil is going to win more majors. So you just need to play really well and try to grab the occasion when you have it.”

Winners of the 2009 Backwoods Barbie-Q pose with Dolly Parton during their night of festivities at Parton’s Sevier County home. Parton is donating the same item for bid at Saturday’s Evening of Elegance for the Dr. Robert F. Thomas Foundation.

Having a ball

Plans set for 21st annual Evening of Elegance By GAIL CRUTCHFIELD Community Editor Supporters of the Robert F. Thomas Foundation will be decked out to the nines as they make their way to Mills Auditorium in Gatlinburg and take part in Saturday’s Evening of Elegance. The annual fundraiser marks its 21st year hoping at least to meet if not exceed the amount raised the previous year. It features the return of the highly successful auction item donated by Dolly Parton along with a number of other unique offerings from your choice of any concert anywhere or the chance to be a fighter pilot for a day. Parton’s Backwoods Barbie-Q II auction item affords the winning bidder and a guest an overnight stay at the guest cottage next to the singer’s mountain home in Sevierville, with a countrystyle breakfast prepared by the star. The winner can also invite 10 additional guests for a private tour of the home and a seat at the table for a barbecue on the grounds with bluegrass entertainment, all hosted by Parton. Last year, Tabitha Hall and Sabrina Taylor turned in the record-breaking $75,000 bid, pooling their money with a group of friends to claim the prize. Amy Kingery, development specialist for the foundation, said the foundation was pleasantly surprised when Parton offered the prize a second time. “We did not think that we would get it again,” Kingery said. “I was telling someone the other day that it blows my mind that she does that. People are constantly wanting things from her and (her home) is her reprieve. This is her space. Last year 12 fans to got to go there. So far they are the only 12 fans to go.” She added the Parton auction item is a very private affair, with only the 12 guests, Parton and the minimum number of staff necessary for the evening meal and entertainment. There are no media or foundation members at the event. “When they came back, they said they’d never seen anything like it,” Kinger said. “They said it was like sitting on a front porch with a friend.” Kingery said Hall and Taylor are among those who have placed early bids on the auction item, hoping for a repeat experience. Those who can’t make it to the event on Saturday can still bid on the prize by contacting event

auctioneer Dale Carr at 712-7653. While it’s the headline auction item, it’s not the only unusual one on the list. “We’ve got some great ones,” Kingery said of the live auction items. “We’re real tickled with the stuff we’ve got because it’s different. It’s not all the same stuff.” For example, it’s not every day you can buy the chance to be a fighter pilot for a day. Kingery said the package gets the winning bidder a day on a military base where they will go through debriefing procedures before and after boarding a military aircraft set to per-

form rolls and encounter a dog fight. All will be filmed. Other live auction items: n A golf cart n A package for 20 and 50 to Splash Country and Reel Theaters, respectively n A Robert Tino original of Sunset on Douglas Lake n A firepit n A concert of your choice anywhere n A week’s stay in Captiva Island, Fla., home that sleeps 10 n Spa treatment at The Spa at RiverStone Resort, lunch at The Pottery House Cafe and dinner at the Peddler n Two-week RV rental and $1,000 gift card, n Trip for two to weekend rounds of the 2011 Master Golf Tournament n Four hours of morning drive-time on air with radio personalities Steve Hartford and Jay Adams Numerous silent auction items will also be available, including cabin rentals, golf memberships, free food certificates, ATV rides and an overnight stay for five at Wilderness of the Smokies.

ings, and in live performance venues throughout her career. Parton plans to appear in person to accept the honor on Sept. 29 at the Hall of Fame Induction Parton Ceremony and Singing News Fan Awards.

Gain some positive control in a negative situation â&#x20AC;&#x153;Got Milk?â&#x20AC;? is an advertising campaign that began in 1993 and is still running, though not as frequently. I think of this ad and of the many people I have seen in print and TV media with milk rings around their mouths as I ask another question, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Got stress?â&#x20AC;? Numerous people can say, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, I got milk.â&#x20AC;? But far more people can truthfully answer, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, I got stress.â&#x20AC;? Daily, we see media stories about how to deal with stress, and we see stories of resultant tragic episodes when people have not been able to cope. It is one thing to see a story titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Job stress is becoming a worldwide epidemic,â&#x20AC;? and still another thing to see a story titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Man shoots and kills pregnant wife, mother, seven-year-old son and two other children.â&#x20AC;? This media story goes on to tell about a man breaking under the stress he just could no longer handle. A feeling of not having control over anything is probably the major reason people break under stress. The break-up may explode at work, at home, in a school or church, or in some other place in the community. People who get a feeling of helplessness and uncertainty often go to extreme means to bring something to conclusion. One thing that can assist people in feeling more control over situations is to realize that stress is usually based on perceptions of the things that threaten us â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and one thing we do have control over is how we perceive something. If you can step back and look at a certain thing, and then ask what it is about the situation that threatens you and how you can look at it differently, you may discover you can find something in the situation you can control â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and then begin working to do so. Employers can help employees by leading them to grow to the point to where they can earn the right to make more decisions at work. Employees can earn this right by developing a greater commitment to their jobs and continuing to strengthen current skills and build new skills. This earning and receiving of greater decision-making opportunities adds value of the employee to the company and leads to greater self-esteem for

the employee. Whether at work, in the home or in the community, if you can gain a feeling of control of some things, you can better deal with stress, which is an inevitable part of life. The good news is that stress is a driving force that actually helps us to accomplish things. The late Dr. Norman Vincent Peale said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I realize that embracing problems isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a popular notion. We often encounter the idea that the best thing we could do for people is to free them from all their problems so that they never again have any pain, any difficulty, any hardship and any struggle in this life on earth. Well, no proper-thinking person would adhere to such an idea as that. People who learn to tussle with difficulty and grow tough in their minds and in their spirits are people who can help change their lives and change the world in a positive way.â&#x20AC;? What can you do to gain some positive control in a negative situation? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Š 2010 by Carl Mays, speaker and author whose mentoring site,, is based on his book and program, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Strategy For Winning.â&#x20AC;?

Sevier County farm producers have until Sept. 30 to submit an application for payments under the 2008 Supplemental Revenue Assistance Payments (SURE) Program, according to Terry Chaney, chairman of Sevier County FSA Committee. The SURE Program provides payments to eligible producers that have crop production or crop quality losses. Producers must have obtained Federal Crop Insurance or NAP coverage for all economically significant crops, according to Chaney. Eligible farms considered socially disadvantaged, limited resource or beginning farmers do not have to have crop insurance or NAP on all crops. Producers are encouraged to file an application for payments. An electronic SURE program payment calculator and additional information is located at http://www., or producers may contact the Sevier County Farm Service Agency at 517 E Bruce St. Sevierville, or call 453-4664, ext. 2.


The staffs of the Gatlinburg and Sevierville Chambers of Commerce participate in the 2009 ELF Mini Golf Tournament.

Third E.L.F. Miniature Golf Tournament set for Dec. 2 Submitted Report SEVIERVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Gatlinburg and Sevierville Chambers of Commerce will hold the third annual E.L.F. Miniature Golf Tournament on Dec. 2 at Ripleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Old MacDonald Farm Mini-Golf in Sevierville. The Chambers presented a check for over $11,000 in April to the Sevier County School Board, all of which was generated by 2008 and 2009 tournaments. The money will be used for dual-enrollment scholarships and an emergency fund for high school students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ELFâ&#x20AC;? stands for Education and Leadership for the Future, and every dollar raised through the holiday-themed event goes to local students. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Sevierville Chamber of Commerce is proud to put this event on in coordination with the Gatlinburg Chamber

Maryville College student interning at ORNL Submitted report MARYVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Katherine Nadler, a student at Maryville College, is spending the summer at Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) conducting research that could aid the U.S. Department of Homeland Security in detecting vaporized explosives. Nadler, a rising junior from Greensboro, N.C., who is majoring in chemical physics and mathematics, is completing a 10-week internship in ORNLâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Biosciences Division. Funded by the Department of Homeland Security, Nadlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s internship allows her to work on a project that uses sensors to detect vaporized explosives.

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just a salute to our families.â&#x20AC;? Deborah Dowling, executive director of the foundation, said supporters of the ball have given a great response this year, as they have in the past, and she is seeing that second generation help out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is sort of an event that most people in Sevier County look forward to,â&#x20AC;? she said. Dowling said she likes to stay near the entrance to see everyone come in. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re happy, excited and all dressed up,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been at the foundation for 10 years now and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like these

Now sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also seeing the next generation following in the footsteps of their parents. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That is so rewarding to know that,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I hope that parents are encouraged when they see their sons and daughters picking up that torch and carrying it own and be supportive. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s is learned behavior and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very rewarding thing to see.â&#x20AC;? Tickets are $200 per person and can be purchased through today by contacting Kingery at 446-9628. The event includes a catered dinner and dancing, with a choice of two dance floors. The event begins at 6 p.m. Saturday and lasts until midnight. Established in 1983, the not-for-profit Dr. Robert F. Thomas Foundation continues the legacy of the man who came to Sevier County in 1926 to serve in the dual role of minister and family physician.

Science and Devices research staff and a research professor in the University of Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Department of Physics. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Due to their small size, these tiny devices can be extremely sensitive to very small quantities of chemicals in the air.â&#x20AC;? Nadlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s team is developing a sensor that can detect dimethyl methylphosphonate (DMMP) molecules. DMMP can be used as a chemical weap-

on or used to produce the nerve gas sarin, Passian said. If successful, the DMMP sensors can be placed at ports of entry into the United States, including airports and cargo docks. Mary Turner, Nadlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advisor, said she is pleased with Nadlerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s placement at ORNL. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Katherine is just a fantastic student,â&#x20AC;? said Turner, an associate professor of chemistry at Maryville. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She was placed at ORNL after only two years of college â&#x20AC;&#x201D; most students usually do an internship after their junior year.â&#x20AC;? Nadler, who also plays volleyball for the college, said her chemistry, physics and computer science courses at Maryville College have prepared her for the internship, but she also found that her speech class was extremely helpful â&#x20AC;&#x201C; especially when she had to give a presentation in front of a small group of scientists.

College student confused about dealing with two female friends



Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: I am going to be in college soon, and I have two problems, both centered around my love life. While acting as a service volunteer in a foreign country, I met “Anna” and became close to her and her family. Anna has kept in contact, writing me every day. But twice she has gotten upset when she thought I had a girlfriend. (I did not then and don’t now.) I am not trying to lead her on. I never made any promises. I do have feelings for her, but I don’t know that I can do anything about bringing her to the States. Then there is “Mia,” a close friend from high school. After I returned from my volunteer service, we met up again. I care for her a lot, but she seems stuck in a rut with school and with a previous boyfriend who keeps her dangling and makes her unhappy. Mia knows how I feel and is OK dating and spending time with me, but there’s no commitment. I want to help her find herself. If she chooses to be with me, great. If not, at least she’ll be happier than she is now. So what can I do to help without hurting either of these two girls or causing their lives to be needlessly complicated? They deserve the best. — Concerned Admirer Dear Prince Charming: You seem to think it is your responsibility to protect these women from themselves. It is not. Instead of being their hero, they treat you as a convenient way to get what they need. Tell Anna you cherish your friendship with her, but the distance makes

any closer relationship impossible. Then wish Mia the best, and let her know you’ll be available if she ever gets over her old boyfriend. Please stop being the consolation prize. You can do better. Dear Annie: Our home is five feet away from our neighbor’s fence. They have two dogs that use the cement pavement as their bathroom. There is a strong smell of urine coming from their property. Is there a tactful way of asking them to hose off the cement walkway so that we do not have to smell these unpleasant odors? — Bothered in California Dear California: First try talking to your neighbors. Say nicely, “I’m sure you don’t realize that the pungent odor from your dogs penetrates my entire home. Would it be possible for you to hose down the walkway after they use it?” If they are considerate neighbors, they will be happy to do this. You also could check to see whether your county or state has a community mediation or dispute resolution center that handles such disagreements between neighbors. Dear Annie: I was quite amused by the letter from “Dirty Dishes Not Dirty Hands,” who objected to a friend washing up in his kitchen sink after playing golf. I am curious: Before

Tina’s Groove

this family prepares food, do they go to the bathroom to wash their hands? After they prepare the hamburger patties for grilling, do they go back to the bathroom to clean up? And after they rinse off the raw chicken, do they go back to the bathroom to wash their hands? After they clean the counter to prepare the salad, do they go into the bathroom to rinse the cleanser off their fingers? Do you see where I’m going with this? Raw chicken residue and the miniscule bits of food left around the kitchen drain harbor as many if not more bacteria than grubby golf hands. And don’t even get me started on the germs one might find in a garbage disposal. If one is really worried about a clean preparation area, I suggest using an antibacterial cleanser or some good old-fashioned bleach. — Clean Hands Dear Clean: How you choose to wash up in your own house is your business. But one needs to be cautious about germs, particularly those tracked in from outdoors, in areas where food is prepared. Enough said.
