SEVIERVILLE — County Clerk Joe Keener is taking an unpaid leave of absence as an investigation into the finances of his courthouse office proceeds. County Mayor Larry Waters announced the move Thursday, saying a note was hand-delivered — though not by Keener — to his office Wednesday. Despite some questions

about whether an elected official legally can take a leave of absence without pay, Waters said Keener has been on leave since the beginning of the week. “Sevier County Clerk Joe Keener informed the county mayor’s office he is taking a leave of absence,” Waters said in a prepared statement. “While on leave, he will remain county clerk. As the state audit continues, Chief Deputy Clerk

Karen Cotter is handling day-to-day operations of the Sevier County Clerk’s office.” Courthouse staffers said Keener handed the key over to Cotter several days ago as a thorough investigation was launched by the state’s Division of County Audit. During the county’s regular annual financial audit, the inspectors apparently found something in the books for Keener’s office that

raised red flags. They subsequently called in four investigators, in addition to the two who were already here, and they have been checking records in the department. The Mountain Press obtained a copy of the letter Keener submitted to the mayor’s office. Dated Aug. 25, the document is brief, to the point and not printed on official letterSee keener, Page A5

Ponzi-schemer: ‘It was the hugest mistake I ever made’

Alzheimer’s kicks off drive for 18th annual Memory Walk By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — The East Tennessee Alzheimer’s Association held its 2010 Memory Walk Kick-off Thursday at the Wilderness of the Smokies’ Stone Hill Lodge Hotel, where association supporters from Sevier, Cocke, Jefferson and Hamblen Counties gathered. “This is our 18th Memory Walk in the Smoky Mountains,” said Janice Wade Whitehead, Alzheimer’s Association executive director. “I want to remind you how successful we were last year — we raised $136,589 with 846 walkers. We had 54 teams, and 26 of those were new teams.”

KNOXVILLE — Despite a last-minute effort to get a break in his potential punishment, admitted swindler Dennis Bolze was given the maximum term of 27 years and 3 months by a Bolze U.S. District Court judge Thursday. Bolze sat still and silent as the ruling was announced by Judge Thomas Varlan, though several of his victims vigorously nodded agreement with the decision. Attorneys for both Bolze and the government pointed out the jail time, which must be served in full since there is no parole in the federal sys-

tem, amounts to a life sentence for the man who will turn 62 in November. The hearing stretched through the entire day as the lawyers wrangled over how serious Bolze’s crimes should be considered to be, with both sides winning victories at various times. The prosecution was denied a push to bump Bolze’s sentencing guidelines up two levels on claims the scammer wasn’t taking full responsibility for his actions, while the defense lost a bid to have Bolze released early to try to make restitution to his victims. “I’m responsible. It’s all me. It’s all here,” Bolze said as he claimed the scam that took $21 million from local and international investors. He previously pleaded guilty to three felony counts each of wire fraud and money

This year’s goal is $147,500 with 914 walkers. The walk is set for Saturday, Oct. 16 at Pigeon Forge High School, with registration beginning at 9 a.m. Carolyn Jensen, the association’s director of development, announced that the Memory Walk’s 41 sponsors have already raised $45,135.

Lindsay White, last year’s top youth fundraiser, has another head start with $1,050 raised. She’s been saving aluminum cans since early June, and she has made notebooks to sell for $5 at Walgreens.

KNOXVILLE — For the first time in the nearly twoyear saga of the collapse of Gatlinburg resident Dennis Bolze’s Ponzi scheme, Bolze himself spoke out Thursday during his sentencing hearing on how the whole nasty business came to be. Though he said he takes full responsibility for the scam that robbed more than 100 people of tens of millions of dollars, Bolze took the opportunity to blame everyone from an unnamed man at a conference to a dead Spaniard to his own ego for pushing him to the crime. Bolze said he knew he was doing something wrong and called it “the hugest mistake (he) ever made.” The admitted swindler seemed to have recurring fits of emotion on the stand, at

the Small Business Paperwork Mandate Elimination Act, legislation that repeals a section of the new health care law that would impose tedious and costly reporting requirement on small business owners. Starting in 2012, Section 9006 of the Patient Protection and Affordable Health Care Act mandates that small business owners file a 1099-MISC to the Internal Revenue Service for every business-tobusiness transaction totaling $600 or more in a tax year. Hallmark added that the U.S. Chamber of Commerce has collectively raised strong concerns about the Clean Air Act, “which was not created to regulate greenhouse emissions,� and the negative impact the Environmental Protection Agency’s endangerment findings would have on jobs and local economies. “We do support climate legislation — we have for a number of years. But we support an international, global effort. Major greenhouse emitters like China must be included — we cannot fix the problem with the United States alone.�

They include doubling U.S. exports in five years; rebuilding America’s infrastructure; investing in energy and pursuing breakthrough technologies; promoting healthy credit marks; removing uncertainty regarding tax, health, environmental, labor, legal and fiscal policies; and educating and training American workers. There are many things that individuals can do to help, Hallmark said, including educating them-

selves on the issues and advocating their positions, supporting political candidates who are pro-business and joining the U.S. Chamber of Commerce in campaigning for a free enterprise ( It was advice that Peggy Lilley, executive director of Sevierville’s MountainBrook Village, has already carried through: In February, she visited Washington to share her concerns over the health care bill with Congressman Phil Roe. “I learned that Congress is actually eager to hear from us,� Lilley said.

laundering in relation to his operation in which he conceded he took money from new investors to pay off existing ones without ever using those funds to trade stocks as he promised to do. Much of the time Thursday was spent talking about that plan, which Bolze himself presented a PowerPoint slideshow outlining. He told the court he has developed software that guarantees returns, even demonstrating in a video how the system works. His proposal for early release called for him to be allowed sell the program to brokerage firms in Chicago, with the royalties mostly going to a blind trust for his victims, though a small footnote pointed out he would also claim part of the cash to pay his living expenses. He also said he would have to be allowed to live in the Windy City for the plan to work because he would have to be able to maintain the program. Bolze also proposed to do community service, saying he would go on the lecture circuit, and use television, radio and the Internet to warn people how to avoid the type of scam he ran. He also offered to set up a Web site that could aggregate news stories and collect legal information on investors to inform people if they are legitimate. Prosecutor Trey Hamilton argued Bolze’s proposal was flawed from the start, pointing out the two days’ worth of trading he showed the court he had done from inside the Blount County jail using the system actually resulted in a net loss of $12.50, far from the returns he promised. Additionally, Hamilton said releasing Bolze to work in the same business he has admitted to using to defraud international victims didn’t make sense, saying such a move would amount to the court’s sanctioning Bolze conning a new group of people. “Snake oil is snake oil, and at the end of the day that’s all this is — snake oil,� Hamilton said. Before the judge recessed the court to make his decision on the sentence, Bolze made one final plea for forgiveness from his victims and lenience from Varlan. “It was never my intent to defraud you or for things to turn out the way they did,� he said. “I spent my entire life being the person people could look to for help. I’m just asking for this one opportunity — one last one — ton earn back your trust and show you the person I truly am. I’m truly, truly sorry. “Punish me any way you like, but don’t punish the victims. To me, they’ve already been punished,� Bolze continued, turning to face Varlan. “I’m just asking that you allow me the chance to help them. Think of them and do what’s right for them. This thing will work. And, if it doesn’t work, Chapter 7 ,

you should throw me under the bus.� Bolze’s victims clearly didn’t buy the plea, with several shaking their heads as he produced what one of them later called, “contrived tears.� Apparently the judge didn’t either, dismissing the effort while likening it to someone addicted to pills asking that the court send him to work in a pharmacy as punishment. Varlan pointed to several factors that pushed him to give Bolze the maximum sentence allowed under federal guidelines for the level of crime he stood convicted of. Among those were the fact Bolze used charities to recruit new investors, and took advantage of the elderly and those close to retirement. The judge also indicated Bolze’s previous criminal record was a player in the decision. He read off the man’s convictions, which started when he was just 24 with bank fraud and embezzlement in his native Pennsylvania. Three years later he was found guilty of theft and added another similar charge just two years after that, with a theft by exception conviction. After a 21-year hiatus, Bolze was back in the criminal system after not paying sales taxes for a pair of businesses he owned in Gatlinburg, then two years later he also admitted guilt to failing to file tax returns. He remained on probation for those crimes when he started his scheme, Varlan said. With high blood pressure and a heart condition, and 61 years and one heart attack already under his belt, the sentence may well mean Bolze is never again a free man. Incidentally, because of those health issues, Bolze’s attorney Kim Tollison asked that the government consider sending him to the Butner Federal Correctional Complex in North Carolina. That just happens to be where fellow admitted Ponzi schemer Bernie Madoff was sent to spend his sentence. While Bolze didn’t react to the decision and Tollison quickly left the courthouse, Hamilton was ready to talk about the ruling and the more than a year it took to get it. “We hope that the sentence imposed today will bring (the victims) a sense of justice and will make it clear, certainly, this defendant won’t be able to hurt anyone else,� the prosecutor said. Bolze victim Carol Muszik said she does believe justice was served in Thursday’s hearing and dismissed Bolze’s apologies. “I think it was contrived,� she said. “I’m very happy that Judge Varlan gave the highest end of the sentence. I hope that will become the norm across the country in this type of case. I’m also very pleased the judge said he sees what Dennis did as a violent crime. I hope that spreads, too.� Bolze has two weeks to appeal the sentence. n

BANKRUPTCY , Chapter 13

recounted the entire situation from its start in 2005 and 2006, a time when he said he got out of a pair of retail businesses he owned in Gatlinburg — noticeably omitting the fact he was convicted of not paying taxes on them — because he wanted to get back into trading stocks. He said he worked in that industry as a young man and believed he had a fool-proof system for making money in it. Bolze testified he started with only his own money and that of one friend, with no thought of recruiting other investors. That changed when he went to lead a seminar on some daytrading software in Florida and was convinced by a man there to recruit others to what he was doing. Bolze said his first lie was telling the man he had some clients, a rather small untruth — but his second was a doozy. “I started telling people I was starting a fund that we hoped would have a 15- to 18-percent annual return,� Bolze said. “That was the second lie. The next thing I knew, people wanted in.� Bolze seemed almost surprised folks would want a piece of that pie, saying he quickly became overwhelmed when he suddenly found himself managing investments for 50 people. He told the court he was told by a mental health expert he was good at planning, but not at execution. He testified he was constantly stressed about handling others’ money and didn’t know what to do. He recalled a moment when he realized there was a way out, saying he considered withdrawing the maximum amount on his credit cards, mortgaging the house and giving people all their money back. “I knew what was right and wrong. To say that I’m sorry that I didn’t take that chance ...,� Bolze said, trailing off. “It was the hugest mistake I ever made. Once Pandora’s box gets open, it’s just impossible to get it shut.� Though he was already in over his head, Bolze said it wasn’t until 2006 when things “really exploded.� That’s when he started working with a man in Mallorca, Spain, by the name of Denys Dobbie. Bolze testified Dobbie recruited new investors there, though he never intended to expand outside East Tennessee. He also said he told Dobbie on several occasions he was ready to get out but that Dobbie prodded him on. “Mr. Dobbie knew

how to stroke my ego,� Bolze said. “I had an ego.� Throughout the proceedings, Bolze has several times been attacked by his victims as a monster, in part because they considered him a friend and he betrayed that. The man returned to that theme several times as he spoke, again saying his ego wouldn’t let him stop. “These were friends of mine. I just didn’t want to let them down,� he said. “They’ve lost a friend now, but you can find new friends. They lost money, but money can be replaced. One thing they lost is trust, and that’s just something you can’t get back.� Bolze talked about how important those friendships were to him, largely because they provided him validation in that if someone likes him, he must be the good person he liked to think he is. He testified losing those relationships has been the hardest part of his ordeal. “I can say I’m sorry until whenever, but there are just not enough words that could ever make things right,� he said. “I’d just like to dedicate the rest of my life to making it right for them. I’d like to show everyone that I’m not the monster they think I am. I’d like to show them I am the man they though I was. They may never be my friend again and they may never trust me again, but I need to do what I can do.� That statement sent Bolze sobbing into his hand, as did his recounting of the last 17 months he’s spent in the Blount County jail. “You think you’ve hit a new low and a few days last you find out that wasn’t the low,� said Bolze, who admitted during the hearing his wife has recently divorced him. “When you’re sitting there, you’d be amazed at what you think of. It’s about who you are. It’s about who you really are. You’re the only one who knows who you really are down deep. At least I found myself.� As he spoke to his attorney, Bolze clearly emoted misery, but that tone changed drastically as he was questioned by prosecutor Trey Hamilton. He was argumentative with the government’s lawyer and seemed to be figuring out the best way to answer each questions, making Hamilton restate each query several times. After a few minutes of Hamilton pushing to show Bolze was trying to dodge admitting to some of his crime, Bolze became obviously frustrated. “I’m accepting full responsibility, so whatever it takes to do that, fine,� Bolze thundered.

head. “Because of the ongoing audit, I believe that it is in the best interest of Sevier County for me to take a leave of absence as county court clerk without pay and effective immediately,� Keener said in a letter dated Aug. 25 and addressed to Waters. “I will cooperate fully in the audit process to make sure that all county funds are accounted for and protected.� Keener added he is looking “forward to a prompt resolution to these issues.� The move is less than the resignation some officials had said they expected. It also raises a host of questions and concerns. For instance, Keener is set to be sworn in again, along with other county officials, on Sept. 1. With the audit unlikely to be completed, it’s unclear if there will be resolution to the matter before Keener is supposed to start the new term he was elected to Aug. 5. Additionally, it remains unclear if an elected official in Tennessee can take such a leave, with no apparent provision for it in

state law. Waters said he met early Thursday with several lawyers who eventually came to the conclusion the move should be allowed, because of no direct prohibition of it in the law. Keener took over the post in 1992 after the death of County Clerk Paul Atchley. He has since served 18 years in the job, winning re-election unopposed and often with the highest vote totals of any official in the county. Waters said he has

spoken to Keener several times by phone over the last few days, including on Thursday, and described Keener’s mood as “somber.� Incidentally, that’s the same word courthouse staffers have used to describe the atmosphere in and around the clerk’s office over the last few days. Several said the situation has created a feeling like there has been a death in the county’s family. n

FLINT, Mich. (AP) — Elias Abuelazam arrived back in Michigan on Thursday shackled, surrounded by a more than a dozen police and wrapped — for his own safety — in a bulletproof vest to face the first of what likely will be numerous charges related to more than a dozen stabbing attacks. So far, Abuelazam, an Israeli citizen who was living in the U.S. at the time of the attacks, is charged only with assault with intent to murder in connection to a July 27 stabbing of a 26-yearold Flint man. But prosecutors say they plan to bring more charges. The 33-year-old, who was arrested Aug. 11 at Hartsfield-Jackson Atlanta International Airport as he was about to board a plane for Tel

Fed aid hoped for after flooding NASHVILLE (AP) — State and local officials who are drafting a damage assessment from last week’s flash flooding in Tennessee hope to reach a $7.3 million statewide threshold to apply for federal aid, the governor says. Gov. Phil Bredesen met Thursday with state lawmakers and emergency management officials about the damage from the sudden, drenching rains and said he hopes the assessment will allow him to request a presi-

dential disaster declaration. Teams this week began examining damage to private property and public infrastructure and will complete those visits next week, said Tennessee Emergency Management Agency director Jim Bassham. Bassham said he doesn’t know yet whether the damage total is high enough to apply for federal aid. In order to get federal aid, each of the affected counties has



to show a certain level of damage based on population as well as the state, which in this case amounts to about $7.3 million statewide in damages. The teams are visiting Jackson, Overton, Putnam, Clay, Hardin, Macon, Cocke, Smith and Wayne counties looking for damage. Bredesen said five counties have met their local requirement, but “where we are short is the total size of the event in the state.”

Roads and bridges washed away or were damaged in the flooding and the heavy rains stranded people in cars and filled homes and businesses with mud and water. The damage is not nearly as bad as historic flooding in early May that affected a wide swath of Tennessee, including some of the same areas affected this month. The flooding in May caused more than $2 billion in damage in Nashville alone and killed 22 people.

Outreach can help people regain dreams By JOANN JORDAN Guest columnist She came with expectations to the beautiful mountains, rushing waters that flow into quiet, calming streams. She saw the glorious valleys where the great mountains dip and rise again to touch the halos of blue smoke that comes and goes like the breath that she breathes. She had joy in being in a place where she could feed her children, clothe and house them decently. There must be good paying jobs in this place where millions of visitors come each year, enjoying their vacations, spending, sightseeing and enjoying the same mountains she came to. She did find a job, cleaning cabins, motel rooms, waiting tables in the restaurants where the visitors came and stayed for a little while. She didn’t come and stay for a little while; she just stayed. Her money was never enough and the places to live were not to be found — not the decent places. Each day she worked from early morning until her shift was done and she counted her money and hoped that she had made enough to pay the rent that week. She had dreamed great dreams, she had seen her children in a decent home — nothing fancy, she didn’t need fancy, but she did want clean. No bugs to fight off her children’s food or their faces as they slept, but she couldn’t find decent housing and her choices became very limited. As she looked and inquired, what she found was what was called “weekly rentals,” her only hope for affordable housing on her wages, so with her two small children she moved into this place at the bottom of the beautiful mountains. Cement drives now bring her and her children to their front door of the single room with two beds. Some old curtains left behind by the person before her or the owner who must think that she and her children aren’t worth better, hang at the dirty windows. This has now become her nightmare. The cement drive has now become her children’s playground; no trees or grass for them to climb or lay in. She rises each morning and leaves to work another day for this shabby place she calls home. Carrying her laundry to wash for the children and herself to try to give them hope. Food she cooks on a hotplate she has been allowed to buy and use. The small amount of food she can put into a refrigerator that was made for a dorm room now holds food for her children. She is now existing. She no longer dreams or hopes. Life is like that here at the bottom of the mountains. Tired and lonely, she watches her children play and she prays. Despair is an ugly word and not to be used around children. Hope, love, kindness and help are words of encouragement. In the great mountains are people who love and hope and help, but they didn’t know or understand that the mother and child needed them. Now as they see the despair and realize they can help, they will — they are that kind of people. She didn’t ask because she had lost hope, but together we can all make a difference, helping her regain her hope in this mountain arena. There is an outreach called “Grace’s Place” in Gatlinburg, on East Parkway or Highway 321. Come and join with us as we help the working mothers and their children regain new hopes and dreams. Giving of time and prayer or financially. It is all needed. Garlands of Grace will have a conference called “Women of Hope” Sept. 24-25 at the Civic Center in Sevierville. The tickets are $25 and will go to Grace’s Place. Won’t you join us and be a part of this event, making a difference in someone’s life? Grace’s Place” is a non-profit 501(c)(3) organization. Donations or requests for tickets may be sent to Garlands of Grace for Grace’s Place, 1081 Ski View Drive, Gatlinburg, TN 37738. For further information call 4360313.

Bittersweet justice Bolze gets deserving sentence, but victims still hung out to dry At long last, a landmark point in the Dennis Bolze case has been reached. Thursday morning in U.S. District Court, a judge sentenced the admitted Gatlinburg Ponzi-like schemer to 27 years in prison. For Bolze, who is in his early 60s, it is tantamount to a life sentence. The punishment seems fair and just for a man who posed as a community civic leader and bilked people that he had conned into trusting him out of more than $21 million. Bolze knowingly took the life savings of people who thought of him as a friend with no intentions of reinvesting it as he had promised. Whether it was $5,000 or $50,000, Bolze ruined the retirement plans of dozens of people who had worked a lifetime to accrue their nest eggs and lived an opulent lifestyle he could never otherwise have afforded. He had a 16,000-square-foot-home in Gatlinburg that would be the envy of many a Hollywood celebrity, and a fleet

of automobiles, even one of which most people could never dream of being able to afford. Yet Bolze wasn’t happy to just defraud his so-called friends. As word of his heretofore undetected scheme spread, investors from other parts of the country bought in. He even traveled to Europe to pitch the scheme, according to court records. Eventually, when the economy turned south, Bolze headed north. He disappeared in December 2008 and was captured in his native Pennsylvania in March 2009. Shortly thereafter, Bolze was extradited to East Tennessee, where he has lived in a jail cell that is probably no larger than a walk-in closet in his one-time mansion. Since then, parties representing the estate and angry investors wanting to reclaim at least a portion of their investments have tried to maneuver through a labyrinth of legal channels. Attempts to auction the multimillion-dollar mansion have run into repeated obstacles. The

question of what would become of the money gained from such an auction has seemingly been tied into an analogous legal knot from which Harry Houdini himself could not escape. Even from behind bars, Bolze, the Ponzi schemer, has continued to scheme. He and his legal counsel have submitted — without success — a plan that would enable Bolze to leave jail in order to have access to the Internet to raise money to repay his clients. The judge had zero interest in investing in that Bolze scam. Today, Dennis Bolze knows he will almost certainly live out his days in prison — and rightfully so. Unfortunately, the sentencing will not bring closure to the dozens of people who once thought of him as a friend, who entrusted their life savings and thus their futures with him, and who may have to work into their golden years just to make ends meet. Thursday was a bittersweet victory for justice.

P u b l i c f or u m Common courtesy and decency should prevent mosque project

Editor: Now my dander is up. I am writing in response to a recent letter defending the mnosque construction in New York. I completely agree freedom is for everyone in this country. I hold no grudge against people exercising his/her rights. This is not an issue of freedom. This is an issue of common courtesy and decency that has me fired up. If Muslim people want a mosque in New York — how about moving across town and buying a building. Move downtown at Times Square, for all I care. Stay away from the World Trade Center site. This is a symbol of our country being wrongfully attacked. People died. Americans died — does it matter what religion they were, they were Americans. My point is that out of common courtesy

or even just respect for what was done to our country and to our people, how about just staying away. You have the right, but that doesn’t make it right. Nobody wants a Timothy McVeigh marker next door to the Oklahoma City building after it was rebuilt. Nobody wants a public reminder of other people’s faults and failures less than 200 yards from the actual buildings that collapsed. As I understand it, this building was only made available after a landing gear and part of the fuselage (body) of one of the planes that brought down one of the Towers crashed through the roof and damaged the building. This building is close enough to be destroyed by falling parts of the plane and it is not part of ground zero? I am telling you, nobody wants this. This Muslim congregation may have the right, but that doesn’t make it right. That is

just common courtesy and decency. David Carver Sevierville

Tale of Sevierville golf course reminder of story of watermelons

Editor: Building the golf course bigger and adding 18 more holes reminds me of the story of two men selling watermelons. The two men were buying watermelons in Kentucky for a dollar each. Then they trucked them back to Tennessee and sold them for a dollar each. One man said to the other, “We’re not making any money!” The other man said, “Maybe we need a bigger truck!” or “Change the name of our company.” Herman Ownby Sevierville

Halls is always up for Smoky Bears

Seymour facing tough foe in CAK

By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor

By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor

SEVIERVILLE — Traditionally, the Sevier (1-0) County versus Halls (0-1) matchup is a good one. “(And) I don’t expect any different,” Smoky Bears coach Steve Brewer said Thursday night. “I told our players all they have to do is look at the history with them and they’ll see really quick that it’s always been a terrific ballgame.” In fact, in the teams’ previous 11 meetings, Sevier County holds just a one game advantage — six wins to five. And not only are the win totals close, so are the scores. Averaging those 11 matchups reveals Sevier County with a six-point edge, 22-16. “Last year we escaped Halls with a 3-point win, and in 1999 when we won the state championship we lost at Halls,” Brewer said. “Our coaches — we don’t need to be reminded, but we hope our players have picked up that message.” Brewer said Halls is traditionally a well-coached, disciplined team that competes on every play. “And in high school football, if you get your team to compete, you’re going to be successful,” Brewer said. Following the Bears’ big win at William Blount last Friday, the coach said his team has practiced fairly well this week. “I think they saw what they were capable of,” Brewer said of his Bears. Now the team just needs to continue last Friday’s mentality against the Red Devils. If they don’t, it could be trouble. Halls lost a heartbreaker to Clinton last week 28-27, and they’ll undoubtedly be fighting hard to get back on the right track. “(Halls) believes in what they do and they will come ready to play us,” Brewer said.

After East rebuilt a 14-9 edge, SCHS junior Caroline Miller knocked down four straight serves to knot it at 14s. The Bearettes got their first lead of the game when senior Hailey Tackett hit two-straight serves for an 18-17 edge. But the lead didn’t last long as the Lady Hurricanes knotted it at 21s, 22s, 23s and 24s. Sevier County senior Kaycee Dixon served the final two points of the match, and Duncan came through with a game-winning spike that evened the Bearettes record to .500 in the young season. The Bearettes next travel to Gibbs 6 p.m. Monday for a threeway against the host school and Powell.

SEYMOUR — Tonight the Seymour Eagles have their work cut out for them as the powerhouse Christian Academy of Knoxville Warriors come to town. “We’ve got a very good football team coming in here,” coach Jim Moore said. “I think they’re ranked fourth in the state in their classification.” Last season the Warri0rs played an unkind host to the Eagles, besting Seymour 35-6 in West Knoxville. The loss was Seymour’s worst of the regular season and coach Moore’s players undoubtedly remember it. But they’re excited for a chance to compete. “They’re excited about playing,” Moore said. “We’re just a very young football team, and they’re just excited about playing on Friday nights and having fun. That’s why they’re out here lifting weights and running in the summer. “ Last week the Eagles showed they play a good team close, as a comeback attempt against Daniel Boone fell short 26-14. The big comeback effort must have spurred something with the team, because Moore said this week’s practices were great. “This is probably the best week of practice we’ve had this year,” the second-year coach said. This week the Warriors will probably provide as much, if not more of a challenge for the Eagles. CAK returns 14 of the 22 starters from last year’s team, including senior quarterback Quinn Epperly, who passed for 21 scores last season. In their season opener last week, CAK earned a one-sided win over Grace Christian, another good private school from Knoxville, by a 28-6 margin.

Big night for Bearettes SCHS earns big win over IMAC rival By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer SEVIERVILLE — After a slow start to the 2010 season, the Sevier County High School Smoky Bearettes bounced back with two big match wins at home Thursday night. First, the ladies dressed in purple and black made short work of the visiting Gibbs Lady Eagles with 25-8 and 25-11 game wins to take it in two. The late match was a bit more

work, but after a big come-frombehind win in a third-game rubber match over traditionally tough District 2-AAA rival Morristown East Lady Hurricanes, the Sevier County girls (2-2) finished the night on an upbeat note. “Our serves improved tonight, we limited their points on their serves, and we averaged just five unforced errors per game,” said a happy seventh-year Bearettes coach Billy Ward. After dropping the first game against East 25-20, the Bearettes came back with two straight game wins to take the match, the first a 25-7 domination and the last a 26-24 nailbiter. East jumped out to a huge 7-1 lead in Game 3, but SCHS freshman Sydney Duncan reeled off several nice serves to pull the Bearettes to within a point, 7-6.


SCHS cross country girls finish 3rd at Panther Creek Invitational

Sevier County cross country girls (from left to right) Skylar Trent, Lisa Burke, Courtney Kirby, Hannah Pelham, Callie Hill and Makayla May show their third place trophy from the Panther Creek Invitational in Morristown.

MORRISTOWN — The Sevier County High School cross country team opened its season against some of the toughest competition in the region earlier this week at Panther Creek State Park, including last years’ state champions Morristown West. “Considering our youth, the competition and the early season I thought our team performed very well,” said head coach Dan Hanlon. The girls team finished in third place overall among a field of 13 teams entered in the Panther Creek Invitational. Sophomore Hannah Pelham led the girls squad finishing eighth among nearly 100 runners. With that effort Hannah was named to the all-invitational team. Also scoring for Sevier County and rounding out the girls team were runners Makayla May, Courtney Kirby, Lisa Burke and Skyler Trent. Two first-year female runners Callie Hill and Meagan Tippet also competed. The boys squad led by

sophomore Patrick Hanlon finished in sixth place. Corey Ramsey, Arnaud Cavaletto, Cody Kesterson and Parker Maples scored for the male runners. Rounding out the boys team were Adam Davis, William Winborn, John Burke, Austin Greenlee, Jake Moore and Tyler Stinnett. “This is a very young team learning to race on some very tough courses,” said coach Hanlon. Sevier County’s next meet is September 4 at the Cherokee Classic, part of the Knox Metro series. From submitted reports

Knox Catholic Irish deal Bearettes 8-0 soccer blowout By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — The promising start to the Bearettes season last week took a big step back backward Thursday night at the Sevier County High School Soccer Complex. The visiting Knox

Catholic Irish needed just eight minutes in the first half to get the game out of reach at 3-0, and by halftime the visitors led 4-0. The Bearettes’ halftime speech didn’t help, as Catholic added three more goals in the first 10 minutes of the second half.

By the game’s end, the final was 8-0. “We started out flat as flat can be,� coach Bobby Norwood said. “We weren’t mentally prepared. We’re a better team than that.� Just 15 minutes into the game, Sevier C0unty had benched their starters.

Tigers’ RB Travis will play vs. Greenback By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer PIGEON FORGE — Unlike most prep football teams across the state of Tennessee, the Pigeon Forge Tigers took their off week on Week 0 last Friday night, making tonight’s Week 1 contest the Orange and Black season opener against the visiting Greenback Cherokees. As a result, the Tigers are hungry to hit someone in a different-colored uniform. And as of Wednesday, Pigeon Forge will be doing that hitting with a full roster. Standout junior RB Chase Travis has missed the past few weeks of practice with a high ankle sprain suffered in a preseason scrimmage against

Sweetwater, but he was medically cleared on Wednesday and intends to play in tonight’s seasonopener. “Chase is getting better, and he felt better (Thursday) than he did (Wednesday),� said Hammonds, hoping it’s a good sign that his star runner’s ankle is holding up. “He will dress (Friday) night, and he will play (tonight). He’s excited about that.� Travis’ presence could be a huge factor in tonight’s contest against the Cherokees, who defeated Meigs County 35-12 in Week Zero. The Tigers also opened their 2009 season against Greenback and lost 24-13 in a contest Pigeon Forge led 13-12 at the half. Travis was injured in last year’s

season opener and missed the second half, which aided a big Cherokee comeback. Pigeon Forge hopes Travis is ready to go, but it’s certain that the coaching staff will be keeping a close eye on how the player responds to contact. “We’re just taking it dayby-day,� said Hammonds. Also back in pads is junior RB Cody Davis, who also missed significant preseason action after an injury from wrestling season set him back. Davis has been limited to non-contact drills the past two weeks, but he was also cleared to play on Wednesday. Both Travis and Davis participated fully in Thursday’s practice. “We’re going to be 100 percent healthy (enter-

ing the season),� said Hammonds. “And we’re excited about that.� The Tigers embark on this season with unfamiliar feelings of expectations, both from themselves and from the community. The stands are expected to be filled with Orange-andBlack supporters 7:30 p.m. tonight, because there’s an electricity in the Pigeon Forge air. “But we play against some very good teams in our district,� warned Hammonds. “We’ve just got to keep working hard, take care of ourselves and do everything we can to overcome the adversity that we’ll face and learn how to win on Friday nights, one week at a time.�

Sevier Aquatic Club makes splash at City Meet in spite of small numbers Sevier Aquatic Club finished ninth out of 35 total teams at the Greater Knoxville Area Interclub Swim Association city meet at the Allan Jones Intercollegiate Aquatic Center earlier this month. The ninth place finish is impressive considering the team ranked 22nd of the 35 teams in number of swimmers entered in the meet. SAC’s city meet individual champions included: Thomas Horne, an 8-and-under boy, who won the 25 butterfly, 50 free, and 100 IM and Natalie Burnett, who won the 50 backstroke and Connor Rytz who won the 50 butterfly.  The team’s relay champions included the 10-and-under boys  medley relay (Brady Cusick, Colin Russell, Samuel Knight and Charles Blalock); the 11 and 12 boys, who won the 200 free relay in meet record setting time of 1:47.25

(Sterling Burnett, Cannon Claiborne, Connor Rytz and Matthew McFalls), and lastly the 15-18 year old girls medley, relay which won in meet record setting time of 1:54.10 (Natalie Burnett, Danielle Gibson, Sarah Nowack, Emily Rytz). The Sevier Aquatic team looks as though they have a very talented younger team and will continue to improve their performance at the city meet. The Stingrays are led by coaches Ryan Buechner, Scott Wherry, Rebecca Nowack and Tracy Kalina. Sarah Nowack also won one of the  $1,000 annual senior  scholarships from the Greater Knoxville Area InterClub Swim Association as well as another $1000 scholarship given annually by the team.

nation briefs Toyota recalls 1.1M Corollas, Matrixes

NEW YORK (AP) — Toyota recalled 1.13 million Corolla sedans and Matrix hatchbacks Thursday because their engines may stall, the latest in a string of quality problems at the Japanese automaker. The recall covers vehicles from the 20052008 model years sold in North America. Three accidents and one minor injury have been reported, though Toyota said a link to the engine issue has not been confirmed. The automaker said vehicles with 1ZZFE engines may contain a defective engine control module, the computer that regulates the performance of the engine. In some cases, a crack may develop on the module’s circuit board, which could prevent the engine from starting, harsh shifting or an engine stall.

Blagojevich headed for retrial in early ’11

CHICAGO (AP) — Former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is set to go back on trial in early January, but he will stand alone as a defendant this time after prosecutors dismissed all corruption charges against his brother on Thursday. U.S. District Court Judge James Zagel said Rod Blagojevich’s retrial will start the week of Jan. 4, but he did not set a specific date. Jurors deadlocked last week on all but one of 23 charges against the former governor and four charges against his brother. The lawyer for Robert Blagojevich delivered the surprise news about the charges being dismissed to his client in a brief phone call moments after the hearing. The attorney, Michael Ettinger, told the Nashville businessman, “You’re free.” He said Robert Blagojevich responded “Oh my god, you’re kidding!”

Alabama teens killed when log truck hits car

ARDMORE, Ala. (AP) — Two high school juniors, including one who had just turned 17, died in north Alabama when the vehicle they were traveling in collided with a log truck. Authorities said Jordan Christopher Blake Young of Toney and John Michael McCown of Ardmore, both 17, died in the wreck around 5 p.m. Tuesday. It was Young’s birthday. Troopers said the teens were traveling in a car that failed to stop at a stop sign. A log truck hit the car’s passenger side and tipped over, spilling logs. The truck’s driver, 61-year-old Clifton Stubblefield of

Petersburg, Tenn., wasn’t injured. The teens were both wearing their seat belts, but the impact from the truck crumpled their car. The crash was under investigation.

N.Y. governor could face criminal charges

ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — A special investigation concludes New York Gov. David Paterson’s testimony about his plans to pay for World Series tickets last year was “inaccurate and misleading” and warrants consideration of criminal charges by a prosecutor. In a report Thursday, former state Chief Judge Judith Kaye notes four of five tickets to the World Series opening game between the New York Yankees and the Philadelphia Phillies were paid for later. She says there’s a question whether Paterson gave “intentionally false testimony” to the State Public Integrity Commission about having written an $850 check in advance for two tickets.

Car smashed by camera falling from police chopper

COLUMBUS, Ohio (AP) — A camera mounted to a police helicopter in Ohio fell off mid-flight, striking at least three vehicles in a parking lot. No one on the ground was hurt when the infrared camera valued at roughly $100,000 came crashing down around noon Wednesday in Columbus. One vehicle was heavily damaged. At the time the chopper dropped its accidental bomb, the helicopter was being used in the search for a missing woman. Police Sgt. Richard Weiner says the camera had been reinstalled on the chopper before it took off.

Jobless claims drop first time in 4 weeks

WASHINGTON (AP) — New requests for unemployment benefits fell sharply last week, the first decline in a month and a hopeful sign after a raft of negative economic reports. New claims for jobless aid dropped by 31,000 to a seasonally adjusted 473,000, the Labor Department said Thursday. Still, claims remain much higher than they would be in a healthy economy. Employers are reluctant to hire as economic growth appears to be slowing. The drop comes after a steep rise the previous three weeks that sent claims to their highest level in nine months. Those increases raised fears that businesses were starting to layoff more workers.

Man on the run (or walk) Atchley participating in Man Run less than year after cancer diagnosis By GAIL CRUTCHFIELD Community Editor When Sevierville Mayor Bryan Atchley heard about the Man Run for Prostate Cancer Awareness last year, he didn’t give it too much thought. After a year in which he was diagnosed and treated for a disease that is expected to kill more than 27,000 men this year, he’s taking a more active role in the third annual event. “About this time last year I was on my way back from Nashville and listening to a Knoxville radio station,” Atchley said, sitting in his office at Sevier County Health Care Center. “Phil Williams, the DJ, had a gentleman on there talking about the Man Run and talking about prostate cancer and I didn’t think anything more about it until I got diagnosed.” Atchley, 58, was diagnosed in February, after a spike in levels of prostate-specific antigen (PSA) was found in his blood. “Fortunately, I had high cholesterol,” Atchley said. “That’s the reason I was going to the doctor, and the reason I had high cholesterol was because I hadn’t been taking my medicine.” He said he just stopped taking the medication and couldn’t feel any difference in his health when he took it. “Typical male, you know,” he said. “I can’t tell any difference when I take my cholesterol medicine, but it does things internally like clean out your arteries and keeps everything going.” While it wasn’t the best choice he could have made for his health — he now takes his medicine as it’s prescribed — it proved helpful in the long run. After resuming his medications, his doctor had him come back a couple more times for blood tests. One taken about 10 months later showed an improvement in his cholesterol, but was worrisome when it came to his PSA count. “I’ll never forget when Dr. (Eric) Littleton called me back in February he said, ‘Well, Bryan, your cholesterol is great.’ But he says, ‘We may have another problem. Your PSA is really elevated since July.’” Atchley’s PSA count was 4.3, slightly above the 4.0 minimum that is considered standard for healthy men. “But the fact that it had come from almost nothing to 4.3 in six months, it’s the rate of escalation,” he said that worried his doctors. He and Littleton went over a list of urologists and chose one for Atchley to see for treatment. Within a week that doctor had him scheduled for a biopsy on Feb. 23 — the birthday of one of his younger brothers. The results came back a few days later. “I’ll never forget, I got the call from Dr. (Edward) Kim after the biopsy,”

he said. “It was a Friday. He called me about 12 Curt Habraken/The Mountain Press o’clock and said it’s Mayor Bryan Atchley will take part in the cancerous.

The Kings have two children, Laren and Marcus. Laren

works with her parents in ministry. King says she was moved to write a book on prayer concerning the things she had learned in her own study of the scriptures and prayer life. The book is built on 30 principles, such as being able to bring worries, fears, troubles and anxieties to God. King has deep roots in the Smoky Mountains. Her greatgreat-great-grandfather was Middleton Whaley II. Her great-greatgrandparents were Aaron

Whaley and Sarah Ownby Whaley. Their son George Whaley married Ellen Clark and they had 10 children. King is named after her grandmother, Nora Whaley Ramsey, who is one of the 10 children of George and Ellen Whaley. Back when doctors still made housecalls, Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandmother traveled

with a local mountain doctor helping to treat patients who were in need of medical attention. They worked extensively in the Smoky Mountains.

as well. The money raised through the Man Run benefits the University of Tennessee Medical Center Cancer Institute, which provides free prostate cancer screenings and outreach programs. The $30 registration fee will pay for two free screenings. Those free screenings are especially helpful now, Atchley said, when unemployment is so high. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s laid off, somebodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s out of a job, the last thing theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to think about is going to have lab work done,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But they provide like eight different free clinics all over East Tennessee where you can go and have the PSA and physical exam free of charge.â&#x20AC;? Just such a clinic is scheduled for Sept. 8 at UT Family Physicians, 657 Middle Creek Road in Sevierville. The screenings will be offered to males 50 and older and those 45 and

Bryan Jr., that he will need to tested when he turns 40 in a couple of years. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You better believe heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have his tested,â&#x20AC;? Atchley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t care if I have to draw the blood myself.â&#x20AC;? Early detection, he said, is truly the key. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve known two or three people who said they lost a father or a brother or an uncle to prostate cancer simply because they caught it when it was way too late,â&#x20AC;? Atchley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The more I can help somebody through a situation like this â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I think thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of the reasons maybe the good Lord has let me do as well as I am â&#x20AC;&#x201D; if it makes people aware first to get tested, and then if you get tested and it turns up cancer, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the end of the world.â&#x20AC;? The Man Run will start at 8 a.m. Saturday at UT Medical Center. Registration begins at 7 a.m. and is $30. For more information, call 305-8577 or visit www.

One of the responses I received from last weekâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s column titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do the best you can with what you have where you areâ&#x20AC;? was from a reader who wrote: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Your article reminded me of something I have thought and said many times, â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;No matter where I go, there I am.â&#x20AC;&#x2122; This means I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t run away from any problems that are INSIDE OF ME! I take all â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;my stuffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201D; good or bad â&#x20AC;&#x201D; with me wherever I go; so I better make SURE Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m constantly â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;re-packingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x201D; throwing out the BAD stuff and bringing on the GOOD stuff.â&#x20AC;? As I thought about the readerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s words, I thought of how sometimes we play games with ourselves by rationalizing and making the bad appear good in our minds â&#x20AC;&#x201C; sort of like Liz, a widow who resided in a senior adult retirement community. She and her friend Ruth grew curious about a new resident, a quiet, nice-looking man who kept to himself. As the two elderly women sat by the pool one day, they noticed the man sit down across the way. Ruth said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Liz, you know how shy I am. Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t you go over and find out a little about him. He looks so lonely.â&#x20AC;? Liz agreed, walked to the other side of the pool and said to the man, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Excuse me, sir. I hope Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not prying, but my friend and I were wondering if you might be lonely.â&#x20AC;? He replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Yes, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m lonely. I spent the past 20 years in prison.â&#x20AC;? With eyes wide, Liz said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re kidding! What for?â&#x20AC;? He responded, â&#x20AC;&#x153;For killing my third wife. I strangled her in self-defense.â&#x20AC;? Rather unfazed, Liz asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What happened to your second wife?â&#x20AC;? He answered, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I accidentally shot her.â&#x20AC;? Clearing her throat, Liz queried, â&#x20AC;&#x153;And, if I may ask... your first wife?â&#x20AC;? Again, the man replied without hesitation, â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were having an argument and she stumbled off a balcony.â&#x20AC;? Liz uttered, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Oh,

my!â&#x20AC;? She then turned and yelled across the pool, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ruth, Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single!â&#x20AC;? I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hesitate to say that Liz, in her â&#x20AC;&#x153;re-packing,â&#x20AC;? was bringing in the BAD stuff. Another response I received to the column regarded my writing, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What really irks me is when people who are a part of any organization just sort of coast along, doing far below what they are capable of doing and expecting others to take up the slack.â&#x20AC;? This responder wrote to me, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Recent surveys have reported that in American business approximately 50 percent of a workerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s day is spent doing nothing that leads to the productivity of the company for whom he or she works. This means that for many, the eight-hour workday results in about eight hours of actual work.â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve seen some reported figures comparable to that supplied to me by the respondent. The current situation for many organizations validates an emphasis from one of my past columns, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Water the flowers and eliminate the weeds if you want your garden to grow and flourish.â&#x20AC;? Or, as the first respondent expressed: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Throw out the BAD stuff and bring on the GOOD stuff.â&#x20AC;? 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;?

Couple with cold feet should try premarital counseling



Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: My boyfriend and I met each other at a military school. A month later, we moved in together. My 12-yearold daughter and I moved 900 miles to be with him. Six weeks later, he asked me to marry him. Soon after, we both began getting cold feet. For no reason, I became enraged with jealousy and started to smother him. The truth is, we both have behaved foolishly. Three times, he questioned our commitment. Now we have officially called off the engagement and are considering selling the ring to pay off our debts. We have a lot of financial difficulties right now. Can this be fixed? If I love him, why don’t I trust him? Why am I so jealous? We both have had bad relationships in the past, but we are smart enough to understand the need to put those behind us. So why can’t we move on? Is there any way to get back the feelings we had for each other in school? I am so confused. — Love at First Sight Dear Love: That initial powerful attraction at first sight is not love. It is infatuation. It can become love over time, but the passion and excitement of being with someone new does not last forever. There must be more underneath for a relationship to succeed. Both you and your boyfriend seem to realize that you rushed things, and now you are afraid it won’t last, so you are sabotaging your chances. You don’t want to wreck a good thing, but neither do you want to stay

in a bad relationship. Because there is a child involved, we recommend premarital counseling to determine what you have and whether it is worth saving. Dear Annie: A neighbor recently asked me to join her health club. We have been good friends for about six months. She goes to the club daily, but I’m not much for exercising in public. However, she offered me her free guest pass, so I decided to go and check it out. “Lori” picked me up after work, and we both needed to change into our sweats. The locker room had no individual stalls except in the bathroom, so that’s where I went to change. When I came out to put my things in the locker, Lori was stripped naked and stood there talking to me in the buff. I was mortified. I do not feel it was necessary to be stark naked while having a conversation, yet Lori acted as if there was nothing strange about it. I am not used to seeing other adult women naked. She has since asked if I will go back to the gym, but I do not want to find myself in such an uncomfortable situation again. I enjoyed the workout, but I don’t want to lie to her about my reasons for staying away. What should I tell her? — Modest Mary

For Better Or Worse

Tina’s Groove

Dear Mary: We hate to break it to you, but that is normal behavior for a gym locker room. You can thank Lori and tell her you prefer to exercise at home, but since you enjoyed the workout, we think you should give it another try. Change into your sweats before leaving work, or find a way to go directly from home. When you arrive at the gym, you can simply toss your stuff in a locker and head for the equipment. And if you become a member, you can go on your own. Dear Annie: My husband and I planned our funerals years ago. He built my casket for me. Our daughter made the interior. He used to tell people he made the casket as a Christmas gift, but I didn’t use it, so he wasn’t going to give me any more Christmas presents. We raised eight children, and he died two months before our 55th wedding anniversary. He had to use my casket since his hadn’t been completed. — Death Is Natural Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
