SEVIERVILLE — Criminal charges were dismissed Thursday against the teenage driver of a car that crashed on Allensville Road last year, leaving one person dead and the other three occupants injured. Corey Robinson, now 18, was charged with reckless homicide and

reckless endangerment. He was driving car the night of May 2, 2 0 0 9 , Robinson when it crashed into a tree. The wreck killed his best friend, Matthew Gentry, who was seated next to him

in the front seat, and injured two friends in the back seat, Josh Lethco and Corey Tibbs. Judge Jon Kerry Blackwood of Somerville in western Tennessee heard the case in juvenile court after local judges Dwight Stokes and Jeff Rader recused themselves. Robinson was 17 when the accident occurred, which is why the case was heard

in juvenile court. Juvenile court cases typically are not open to the public, but Robinson’s attorney, Charles Poole, reported the outcome to The Mountain Press. Speeding was not the issue, Poole said. All parties agreed Robinson was driving over the speed limit, though the two sides didn’t agree on how much over. Poole said the case came down

Campaign chair says $500,000 goal ‘doable’ By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer PIGEON FORGE — United Way honorary campaign chairman Danny Devaney — also known as “Scraps” in Hoot N’ Holler’s dinner show — was clearly in good spirits at United Way of Sevier County’s 2010 Campaign Kickoff on Thursday at The Inn at The Christmas Place. He drew plenty of laughs from attendees as he encouraged new United Way board member (and good sport) Roger McFalls to fit him into a “straight jacket” with several belts, then attempted to get out of the jacket in record time. “I’m all fired up!” Devaney told the crowd. “We’re not going to just meet our goal, we’re going to beat our goal. If everyone can convince five people to come out and help, think what kind of a difference it would make. We’re going to raise a whole lot of money and help a whole lot of people.” United Way 2010 Campaign Chairwoman Amy Pangelinan of BB&T announced that the organization had set a campaign goal of $500,000. “I think it’s doable,” Pangelinan said. “One of the things I love about East Tennessee is the way the community comes together. We get behind things that See campaign, Page A4

There will not be an election in November to choose a new county clerk. Relying on opinions from several officials, County Mayor Larry Waters said Thursday voters will not elect a new county clerk until 2012. Why? The resignation of County Clerk Joe Keener II is not official until it is accepted by the full County Commission, several state officials say. Waters accepted Keener’s letter of resignation on Monday, which would have been more than 60 days from the November election — time to get the clerk election on the ballot. However, opinions from the Tennessee attorney general, the comptroller’s attorney and the state coordinator of elections were all in agreement that the resignation won’t be official until the entire County Commission accepts that. That will be done at a special meeting of the commission next Thursday. At that meeting, the commission is expected to name Chief Deputy Clerk Karen Cotter as interim clerk — she is now serving in a temporary role. At some point the commission will set up a process for appointing someone to serve as clerk until the 2012 election. See election, Page A4

D.C. rally reassures local man ‘Our country is not gone yet ...’ By ELLEN BROWN Staff Writer Fox News pundit Glenn Beck reported that 500,000 people attended his “Restoring Honor” rally in Washington on Saturday — a crowd that included Sevierville businessman Bill Burke. “I decided about two months ago that I was going,” said Burke, owner of Wild Bill’s Army Navy Store. “I went by myself, and my wife stayed here to run the store. The crowd over there was unbelievable — it was one of the best things I’ve ever seen.” Burke had a purpose for going, and he did not come away disappointed. “This was something I had to do for myself and my country,” he said. “It reassured me that our country is not gone yet.” Held on the 47th anniversary of Martin Luther King’s “I Have a Dream” speech in front of the Lincoln Memorial, the rally was intended to “restore honor to America,” Beck had said. Former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin was one of the event’s

headliners, stating she was there as “the mother of a soldier.” Religious themes, charity and national service were the topics at the forefront. Beck had urged parents to bring their children, and Burke said that he saw many of them there. “It was all ages, lots of kids,” he said. “They had members of the military on stage, and Martin Luther King Jr.’s niece was even there — she delivered a beautiful speech. “The rally was associated with the Tea Party — we all knew that — but they didn’t talk about politics. It was very peaceful. Everyone was there for the American people.” Burke, a New York native who has had his Sevierville store for around three-and-a-half years, said that he is “a patriot all the way.” “I was telling some folks from Long Island the other day about it, that there were 500,000 people out there just like them,” he said. “That said to the Submitted government, ‘Open your eyes — there Sevierville businessman Bill Burke attended the recent are people out there who really care.’” “Restoring Honor” Rally in Washington, which was held in front of the Lincoln Memorial. n

TDOT halting highway lane closures for holiday weekend Submitted Report The Tennessee Department of Transportation is once again halting all lane closure activity on interstates and state highways for the Labor Day holiday travel period. More than 600,000 Tennesseans are expected to travel by car this holiday. Construction crews will stop

all lane closure activity beginning at noon on Friday through 6 a.m. Tuesday. “The Labor Day holiday is one of the busiest travel periods of the year,” said TDOT Commissioner Gerald Nicely. “As thousands of people hit the road in Tennessee, we want to ensure they get to their destinations quickly and safely without road construction delays.”

While lane closure activity will be stopped, workers will still be on site in many construction zones. Drivers convicted of speeding in work zones where workers are present face a fine of $250 to $500, plus court fees and possible increased insurance premiums. The summer travel season is expected to close with almost 10 percent more travelers dur-

ing the Labor Day weekend than during the same period in 2009.

MARYVILLE — Roxana Saberi, an IranianAmerican journalist who was falsely accused of espionage and imprisoned for 100 days in Iran, will speak on Sept. 15 at the Clayton Saberi Center for the Arts on the Maryville College campus. Her lecture, titled “On the Streets of Tehran,” will focus on the six years she lived in Iran as a journalist and witnessed the developments leading up to the 2009 disputed Iranian election, which resulted in hundreds of thousands of Iranians calling for freedom and fighting for free and fair elections. The Iranian regime reacted by using deadly violence to stop to the protests, which sparked outrage among its citizens, as well as the international community. During her lecture, Saberi will discuss the political, cultural and historical significance of those events as they continue to develop and explain what it means for human rights and democracy, the Middle East and the world.

Along with medicine, rest and other parts of your treatment program, regular exercise can keep your joints in working order so you can continue your daily activities. It may also prevent further joint damage. Almost everyone can do some form of exercise, and exercise is beneficial because it keeps your muscles, bones and joints healthy. The stronger the muscles are around your joints, the better they will be able to support and protect those joints — even those that are weak and damaged from arthritis. Exercise also helps keep your joints as flexible as possible, allowing you to maintain your independence and quality of life. The Arthritis Foundation recommends the following tips for encouraging movement: n Control your weight: Lose one pound, and that’s four pounds of pressure off each knee. Losing as little as 11 pounds may reduce joint pain and help prevent knee arthritis. n Don’t do too much too fast. Building endurance should be a gradual

The Point,” Poole said of his client. Robinson’s actions did not rise to the legal definition of reckless, Poole said. That’s not the way parents of two others in the car saw it. Zayne McPeek and Phyllis Gentry, parents of Matthew Gentry, were upset over the judge’s ruling. “We’re both so angry and disappointed at the whole system,” McPeek said after the trial ended. “We’ve got to be able to tell these kids something. We just told these kids that if you can prove it’s an accident and have enough money to hire the right people, you can get out of it.” McPeek said he wanted Robinson to testify in court that he was “sorry for what he did. All I wanted was for him to stand up and be accountable.” Corey Robinson did not testify. Phyllis Gentry said, “I am irate at this while the whole justice system in this screwed up county gets by with taking a life with no punishment at all. It’s like my son’s life meant nothing.” Both were critical of the Tennessee Highway Patrol’s investigation of the accident. McPeek said THP “totally botched this case.” Poole indicated the highway patrol mishandled the investigation to determine car speed. Poole’s own experts found the car had been traveling in excess of the 35 mph speed limit, but not as fast as the 60 mph claimed by troopers in their evaluation of the scene. Poole said the judge believed his expert witnesses

more than the prosecution’s. Chrissty Tibbs is the mother of Corey Tibbs, who was seriously injured in the wreck and has permanent disability. She called the dismissal of charges “an injustice. “It’s like we told all kids and teenagers that it’s OK to drive reckless. The Tennessee (Highway Patrol) screwed up everything, and this kid walks free. It was an injustice to my son,” she said. Corey Tibbs’ testimony was a key part of the case, Poole said. Poole pointed out conflicts in separate statements Tibbs gave authorities. Tibbs’ mother said his medication causes memory lapses. Poole said he and the Robinson family asked that the Tibbs and Gentry families be allowed in the courtroom for the trial, something he said is not usually permitted in juvenile court cases. Poole said the Robinson family wanted the other two families to hear the testimony and evidence. Poole said Judge Blackwood, in dismissing the charges, ruled the incident was “an unfortunate teenage accident.” “There was no joy on either side,” Poole said. “Nobody was smiling and laughing on our side. It was a tragic accident. We all realize that. Corey Robinson lost his best friend and will forever feel that loss. Accidents happen, and that is what this was.” Phyllis Gentry said she and the other parents should have been allowed to testify. A civil suit filed against Robinson and his family by some of the other families is still pending. n

State, Alabama complain about EPA ash hearings CHATTANOOGA (AP) — The Environmental Protection Agency is hearing gripes from Tennessee and Alabama officials who feel left out as the agency goes across the country asking if coal ash should be federally regulated as a hazardous material. Those are the two states most affected by the December 2008 spill in East Tennessee that sent a wave of toxic-laden coal ash and sludge into the Emory River and covered 300 acres, damaging homes, burying roads and raising health concerns. Some residents near a garbage landfill in rural west Alabama are not happy about trainloads of the ash being shipped to their neighborhood for disposal. The EPA is holding public hearings in Virginia, Colorado, Texas, North Carolina, Illinois, Pennsylvania and Kentucky before deciding if coal ash will be regulated for the first time as a “special” hazardous material. EPA officials aren’t saying why the agency won’t put Tennessee on the hearing schedule. EPA e-mails say the agency has held public hearings in Tennessee since the spill at the Tennessee Valley Authority’s Kingston Plant and anyone who wants to comment can send an e-mail message or letter until the comment period ends Nov. 19. EPA officials did not answer an Associated Press e-mail asking if they might add Tennessee and Alabama to the schedule of public hearings that continue through September. One Tennessee politician, Republican U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, wants a public hearing in Tennessee.

We’ll deal with it on that level.” The special commission meeting will be at 6 p.m. Thursday on the third floor of the courthouse. On Wednesday, a representative of the Tennessee Election Commission said he believed the county may actually be required to begin plans for a special election from the moment

a resignation letter is tendered. That would mean the clerk’s job opened up Monday, well before the 60-day window. Sevier County Commissioner Bryan Delius, an attorney, pointed out during the group’s meeting Wednesday that there is a State Supreme Court ruling that supports the idea of an immediate vacancy. But those opinions were overwhelmed by others that convinced Waters not to have an election in November. Officials with the

Tennessee Bureau of Investigation have launched a “theft and embezzlement investigation” into the Sevier County clerk’s office, apparently focused on Keener. The TBI probe was requested after auditors discovered some financial discrepancies and called in more auditors to go over the books. Keener, who had served as clerk since 1992, at first took a leave of absence, then resigned on Monday in the letter to Waters. In his letter he made reference to paying back money to the office.

Bernanke: Shut down banks if they threaten the system By MARCY GORDON AP Business Writer WASHINGTON — Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke told a panel investigating the financial crisis that regulators must be ready to shutter the largest institutions if they threaten to bring down the financial system. “If the crisis has a single lesson, it is that the toobig-to-fail problem must be solved,� Bernanke said Thursday while testifying before the Financial Crisis Inquiry Commission. Bernanke also said it was impossible for the Fed to rescue Lehman Brothers from bankruptcy in 2008 because the Wall Street firm lacked sufficient collateral to secure a loan. Lehman’s former chief executive told the panel a day earlier that the firm could have been saved, but regulators refused to provide help. The Fed chief is presenting his analysis of the crisis and views on potential systemwide risks as the panel approaches the end of its yearlong investigation into the Wall Street meltdown. The financial overhaul law enacted this summer gives regulators the authority to shut down firms when their collapse poses a broader threat to the system. The process resembles the one used by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corp. to close failing banks. FDIC Chairman Sheila Bair told the panel “the stakes are high� for regulators to effectively exercise their new powers. If not, “we will have forfeited this historic chance to put our financial system on a sounder and safer path in the future,� Bair said. Bernanke said that bailing out these institutions is not a healthy solution and great improvement will

come from the new law. “Too-big-to-fail financial institutions were both a source ... of the crisis and among the primary impediments to policymakers’ efforts to contain it,� Bernanke said. “We should not imagine ... that it is possible to prevent all crises,� he said. “To achieve both sustained growth and stability, we need to provide a framework which promotes the appropriate mix of prudence, risk-taking and innovation in our financial system.� Bernanke led the economy through the financial crisis and the worst recession since the 1930s. The Federal Reserve took extraordinary measures to inject hundreds of billions into the battered financial system. Last week he said the central bank is prepared to make a major new investment in government debt or mortgage securities if the economy worsened significantly.

Members of the congressionally appointed panel have questioned the government’s decision to let Lehman fall while injecting billions of dollars into other big financial institutions during the crisis. Former Lehman CEO Richard S. Fuld Jr. testified Wednesday that the firm could have been rescued. But the regulators refused to help — even though they later bailed out other big banks. Bernanke disagreed. He said bailing out Lehman would have saddled the taxpayers with billions of dollars in losses. “It was with great reluctance and sadness that I conceded there was no other option� than allowing Lehman to fail, he said. Asked how the Lehman case differed from that of American International Group Inc., which received $182 billion in taxpayer aid, Bernanke said there was a fundamental difference.

More Democrats buck plan to let taxes increase for rich By STEPHEN OHLEMACHER Associated Press Writer

would face an average increase of $1,126, according to estimates by the nonpartisan Joint Committee on Taxation. Obama wants to make the tax cuts permanent for middle- and lowincome families while allowing them to expire for individuals making more than $200,000 and married couples making more than $250,000. Republicans want to make all the tax cuts permanent, adding nearly $4 trillion to the national debt over the next decade. Most Democrats in Congress support Obama’s plan, but a growing number have come out in favor of extending all the reductions for a year or two, leaving the outcome very much in doubt. “It’s going to be hard to resist a one-year extension for everybody, given the state of the economy,� said Clint Stretch, a tax expert at the consulting firm Deloitte Tax LLP. “That’s where I think the ball is moving.� The tax cuts were enacted in 2001 and 2003 under President George W. Bush. They provided help for both rich and poor, reducing the lowest marginal rates as well as the top ones and several in between. They also provided a wide range of income tax breaks for education, families with children and married couples. Taxes on capital gains and dividends were reduced, while the fed-

eral estate tax was gradually repealed, though only through this year. Connolly said the nation cannot afford to make all the tax cuts permanent, which would add about $3.9 trillion to the national debt over the next decade according to updated estimates from the nonpartisan Congressional Budget Office. “I would say certainly a year, until we feel more confident about the economic growth of this economy,� he said. Another freshman Democrat, Rep. Bobby Bright of Alabama, said he would like to see all the tax cuts extended for two or three years, if lawmakers cannot agree on a more permanent plan. “Party leaders are not my directors or my boss,� Bright said. “My boss is my constituents, and I’ve heard from a vast majority of my constituents that they don’t believe in tax increases on anybody at this point in time.� Bright is high on the re-election endangered list, one of roughly four dozen Democrats in districts won by Republican presidential nominee John McCain in 2008. In the Senate, where Democrats need unity and at least one Republican vote to overcome filibusters, at least three Democrats and independent Joe Lieberman of Connecticut have said they want to extend all the tax cuts temporarily.

WASHINGTON (AP) — Congress seems increasingly reluctant to let taxes go up, even on wealthier Americans. Worried about the fragile economy and their own upcoming elections, a growing number of Democrats are joining the rock-solid Republican opposition to President Barack Obama’s plans to let some of the Bush administration’s tax cuts expire. Democratic leaders in Congress still back Obama, but the willingness to raise taxes is waning among the rank and file as the stagnant economy threatens the party’s majority in the House and Senate. “In my view this is no time to do anything that could be jarring to a fragile recovery,â€? said Rep. Gerry Connolly of Virginia, a first-term Democrat. The most sweeping tax cuts in a generation are due to expire in January, and that’s setting up a showdown when lawmakers return from their summer vacations this month. By waiting to act on the tax cuts until just before congressional elections in November, Democratic leaders have raised the stakes, politically and for taxpayers. If Congress fails to act — a possibility given the gridlock that has gripped the Senate — workers at every income level would face significant tax increases next year.

Agency considers sandhill crane hunt NASHVILLE (AP) — A bird that was once near extinction may soon be a target for hunters in Tennessee. Once nearly wiped out along the eastern United States, sandhill cranes now flock in the thousands to Tennessee wildlife spots during the winter. The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency has a plan that if approved would allow Tennessee to join other states such as Texas that have a season on san-

dhill cranes. The plan would require approval from the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service and a council that oversees the migratory waterfowl flyway. However birders question the need for a hunting season for the 4-foot-tall cranes, which draw thousands of people to Sandhill Crane Viewing Days at the Hiwassee Refuge northeast of Chattanooga. The state estimates 48,000 cranes stopped to rest or stay over the winter

in the refuge last year. “Our big concern is the precedent of taking a non-game species and making it a game species,” said Dick Preston, president of the Tennessee Ornithological Society. The Tennessee Wildlife Federation asked for the opportunity to hunt. “Regulated hunting has never been responsible for the decline of a species in the United States,” said Mike Butler, CEO of the conservation, hunting and

fishing advocacy group. “By definition, it’s regulated.” The TWRA plans to put more information about a possible hunt online and ask for public input. Hunting would not be permitted in the refuge but would be allowed on surrounding private lands. Some neighbors to the refuge who complained about the cranes eating their crops were allowed by special permit to shoot up to 25 cranes on their property last year.

Park concerned with road smoke

Firefighters are keeping watch over a slowburning fire in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, but the main concern is smoke along roadways. According to information from the park, the fire was sparked by lightning on Aug. 17 and began to flare up. It is being contained on three sides by Chilhowee Lake and on the fourth by U.S. Highway 129. Park spokesman Bob Miller said the main concern is smoke along a section of the road called the Dragon that is popular with motorcyclists.

Beck merely first-class rabble-rouser Glenn Beck does not like to be compared with Father Charles Coughlin, the radio priest from Detroit. Coughlin, whose weekly show was listened to by as many as 40 million Americans in the 1930s, began as a Roosevelt New Dealer and ended up a raving anti-Semite. The radio priest was finally pulled out of politics by the Vatican as Nazi Germany began to march through Europe, demonstrating where antiSemitism could lead. Beck is no anti-Semite, as far as I can tell, but he sure as hell is a first-class rabble-rouser with a magnetic hatred of the sitting president. Worst of all, in Beck’s words: “Nobody even knows who Father Coughlin was. ... First he stood with (Roosevelt), but then they had a disagreement. FDR’s people sent people from the administration to Father Coughlin and said, please, you’ve got to come back to FDR; you’ve got to help us out with the New Deal. Toward the end of the New Deal, (Coughlin) said this is a sham, this is a total and complete sham.” Beck wants people to remember him. He wants them to remember he could bring hundreds of thousands of people to the Lincoln Memorial in the year 2010 to cheer him and his almost unintelligible anti-politics, anti-progressive and pro-God ravings. You could defend him, as his Fox News colleague Bill O’Reilly did, only by saying, “Hey, he’s funny!” “He is everyman sitting on a bar stool. Why shouldn’t every man have a show?” said the Irish ranter the other day. For me, that comparison bit. I have always thought of O’Reilly sitting alone at the end of the bar, waiting for someone to sit next to him and demonstrate, so he can tell them how smart he is, trapping them with his theories about how the world works. Easy for O’Reilly to say. Beck makes him look like Socrates. I’m not sure what Beck was trying to prove last Saturday, other than the fact he is a great entertainer and apparently has a one-on-one relationship with God. I particularly liked the line when he said his “Restoring Honor” was originally going to be a political rally of the Tea Party type. But then, divine intervention. “I kind of feel like God dropped a giant sandbag on my head.” That explains a lot. Let’s hear it for God! Politically, Beck kind of defined himself last February, when he told the 2010 Conservative Political Action Conference: “What’s the difference between a communist or socialist and a progressive? Revolution or evolution? One requires a gun and the other eats away slowly.” “Progressivism, this is the disease. This is the disease in America,” he continued. “Progressivism is the cancer in America and it is eating our Constitution!” He also sees it as a great conspiracy, pushed forward by remembered folks like John Dewey, Walter Lippmann, Woodrow Wilson on to Frances Fox Piven, George Soros and John Podesta. And, of course, Barack Obama. “Progressivism,” he has said, “has less to do with the parties and more to do with individuals who seek to redefine, reshape and rebuild America into a country where individual liberties and personal property mean nothing if they conflict with the plans and goals of the State.” Then the call to battle: “This is a day that we can start the heart of America again. It has nothing to do with politics. It has everything to do with God ... turning our faces back to the values and the principles that made us great.” The night before the rally, he expanded on that, telling a friendly audience: “My message to you tonight is stand where He wants you to stand and trust in the Lord. If He tells you to do it, do it. If you can’t figure it out, He will. Just do it.” Do what? I can’t figure it out. All I trust is that decades from now in another summer of our discontent, another frazzled demagogue will deny he is anything like Glenn Beck — and anyway, people won’t even know who Glenn Beck was. — Richard Reeves, a presidential scholar and expert on six presidents, is the author of several books, including profiles of Richard Nixon and John Kennedy.

Dawn of Dooley Coach debuts Saturday, but legacy will take years to write In less than 48 hours, Derek Dooley begins laying the foundation for his legacy as the University of Tennessee football coach, when the Vols host UT-Martin on Saturday night. Even in what the most faithful expect to be a rebuilding year, Dooley should have little trouble notching his first W against the Division 1-AA Skyhawks. Unless the unfathomable happens and Tennessee loses, this weekend’s game will have little effect on how Dooley will be judged. Most would likely be happy with a 7-5 record and minor bowl — that on the heels of a 7-6 season that included a thumping by Virginia Tech in the Chick-fil-A Bowl during Lane Kiffin’s one-year reign. Dooley was not the first choice of Athletic Director Mike Hamilton when Kiffin bolted for Southern California last spring. That would have been Texas defensive coordinator and coach-in-waiting Will Muschamp, followed by former Vol offensive coordinator/now Duke head coach David Cutcliffe and perhaps one or two others. In the end, Hamilton chose Dooley,

a bright, energetic 42-year-old with a solid pedigree. His father is legendary Georgia coach Vince Dooley. He was a wide receiver at Virginia and later practiced law in Atlanta for two years before deciding to get back into the game. He served five years under Nick Saban at LSU, and was the recruiting coordinator on the staff that won the 2003 national championship. When Saban went to the NFL in 2006, Dooley became head coach and athletic director at Louisiana Tech, going 17-20 with an Independence Bowl win in three years. Certainly there are skeptics. A 17-20 record at Louisiana Tech? Not overwhelming to be sure, but better than Kiffin’s 5-15 record with the Oakland Raiders — not to mention Kiffin’s acrimonious divorce from owner Al Davis. Kiffin might have been hired for the coaching staff he could bring; Dooley might have been hired at least in part because of his pedigree. When Kiffin departed, so did some players from his one recruiting class. Phil Fulmer-holdover All-America safety Eric Berry was the fifth player

taken in the NFL draft. Quarterback Jonathan Crompton and leadingrusher Montario Hardesty, among others, are on NFL rosters. Other teams will not take pity because Kiffin left the cupboard bare. The world doesn’t want to hear about the labor pains; it just wants to see the baby — and the infancy of the Dooley era will be interesting to see. It has been 12 years since the Vols last won an SEC championship, which was also a national championship season. Since then, Tennessee has made it to the conference title game three times, losing to LSU in 2001, Auburn in 2004 and LSU again in 2007. Tennessee fans are hungry to regain the glory that dates to Gen. Neyland’s days. Ultimately, what Dooley will be judged on is not what happens Saturday night or this season. If the Vols have a mediocre season, as expected, it will be tolerated. However, if Tennessee isn’t challenging Florida and Alabama for dominance by his third or fourth season, the leash may get much shorter. Until then, the Orange Nation must be patient.

Pigeon Forge, Seymour win golf titles

Young Tigers are a hit at county tournament By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor

Jason Davis/The Mountain Press

The Pigeon Forge golf team (front row, left to right) Ryan Evans, Chase McCown, Tyler Watts, (back row) Cody Vaught, Chad Ownby Jordan Thomas, coach Chad Ownby and Tyler Watts won the county championship Thursday at their home course.

PIGEON FORGE — For the first time in school history, Pigeon Forge High School can say their boys are county champs. Led by three juniors and two freshmen, the Tigers two-straight good days of team effort to overcome an early one-shot Seymour lead and earn an 11-stroke win in the McNellyWhaley Sevier County Prep Golf Championship on Thursday. “The first day we shot 176, and that is not good. It’s sort of where we’ve been,” coach Chad Ownby said. In fact, his team’s improved play kind of surprised him. “I didn’t think this team was ready to break 160, and we went to Creekside and shot 155,” Ownby said. Led by Chase McCown’s 35 and freshman Tyler Watts’ 37, the Tigers played inspired golf. Jordan Thomas, See TIGERS, Page A9

Lady Eagles topple Forge to take county title By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEYMOUR — For the Seymour Lady Eagles, there’s no place like home. After a bad opening round at Eagle’s Landing Tuesday, Seymour’s team of Megan Gamble and Kreistyn Baldridge caught fire Wednesday at home at Creekside Plantation and rode that momentum Thursday at Gatlinburg Country Club, cruising to a 17-stoke win of the McNelly-Whaley Sevier County Prep Golf Championship. Coming back from a 15-stroke deficit Tuesday to lead by eight going into the final round, the Lady Eagles continued their ascension Thursday, outshooting their nearest opponents by nine strokes en route to the title. “(Tuesday’s) the best combined round they’ve had,” coach Gary Householder said after the tournament win. “We’ve had a lot of days when one of them’s played a fine round and the other hasn’t played so good, but they both put it together yesterday, and they both played pretty good up here today.” Gamble finished in second place in the tournament’s individual rankings, while See LADY EAGLES, Page A9

Brewer on Jeff County: Anticipate a battle By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer SEVIERVILLE — Don’t take anything for granted. That’s the message the Sevier County High School Smoky Bears (2-0) football team has heard all week. The Purple and White are riding high after two straight wins over William Blount and Halls by a combined 73-14 margin to start the 2010 season. And tonight, the Smoky Bears will get their first shot at a District 2-AAA win when they travel to rival Jefferson County Patriots (0-2 by a combined 21-83 margin). But Sevier County refuses to believe its third win is a

guaranteed happening until the final horn sounds and the scoreboard shows it to be a done deal. “Last year, the situation was about the same,” said SCHS coach Steve Brewer. “We were 2-0, and they were 0-2. And going into the fourth quarter last year, we were up just 26-21, and they hadn’t even scored a touchdown before they’d played us. “Jeff County has played two really good football teams. Greeneville is good, and they’re ranked what, No.1 in the state? And Bearden is ranked No.4 in the state. I mean, they’ve played two very good football teams.

“I anticipate a hard-fought game, and we usually have those with Jeff County.” When these two teams meet, records can be thrown out. “I remember 2005, when Jeff (County) had a lot of turmoil and their squad was down to 35 players,” said Brewer. “They came over here at 2-6 and we were 6-2, and we beat them 14-6. And they were driving for the goahead score, but we managed to intercept the ball and return it back to their 1. “I asked our players how a 2-6 team almost beats a 6-2 team? A 2-6 team that’s having all kinds of problems? The players admitted, they said, ‘coach, we just didn’t

think they’d show up.’ “Our players (on this year’s squad) have heard that story, and we definitely don’t want to show up and take Jefferson County lightly. If we do that, we’re asking for a big surprise.” Despite putting a 31-0 hurting on Halls last week, the Bears made a number of mental mistakes that cost them 156 yards of penalties on 13 flags. Brewer said his team has performed well in every facet — offensively, defensively and special teams — but stupid penalties will end up costing the team at some point if they don’t get that part of their game cleaned up.

But the key is to remain aggressive, even in games that they’re heavily favored to win, while avoiding those stupid penalties. “One of the keys of high school football is being consistent,” said Brewer. “If you can play consistently week in and week out, you have a chance. “It’s when you don’t show up that you come away disappointed. And if we don’t show up Friday (against Jefferson County), we’ll come away disappointed. It’s going to be a good ball game. “We just have to weather their attacks and keep playing hard ... maybe just a little smarter.”

Eagles and Smoky Bears should roll in tonight’s games Sometimes picking isn’t fun. There are times you don’t want to hurt feelings, but you know you’ve got to be true to your instincts. This is one of those weeks. I don’t see any of the games tonight being too close, and, in one case, I’m hoping I’m dead wrong.

Freshman Ryan Evans’ shot a very respectable 43, which wasn’t even needed. “They were just shooting lights out,� Ownby said. That round put the team up by seven strokes over Seymour. Thursday it was more of the same. “I thought if we could break 170 we’d have a good chance at winning, and they broke 160 again, shot 159,� Ownby said. “That’s just a bunch of young kids deciding ‘let’s go out and win this.’ And they did.� McCown won his secondstraight county individual championship, winning by seven strokes over second-place finisher Shade Treadway of G-P. A third-round score of 33 sealed the deal for McCown. “Today, man, four-under,� Ownby said. “I practice with him, and four-under is pretty common. But to do it under the pressure that’s just stepping it up.�


Baldridge took third place, not bad for a pair of girls that have only been playing competitively for two seasons.

Bearettes sweep in 2 By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer SEVIERVILLE — The Sevier County High School Smoky Bearettes volleyball team continued its recent strong play with two bestof-five match wins against visiting county rival Pigeon Forge Lady Tigers and the Knoxville Carter Lady Green Hornets on Friday. The Purple-and-White girls (7-3) left no doubt in either match, sweeping both contests in three games. The match against Pigeon Forge (1-2) had some electricity when the entire gym was packed full of prep students for the in-school match. The girls from both squads put on a show in the first game, but despite some excellent Lady Tigers

defense, the Bearettes pulled it out down the stretch after Caroline Miller took serve knotted and 21s and then hit for four straight points en route to a 25-21 win. It was as if Sevier County had broken the Lady Tigers’ will, and the Bearettes cruised the rest of the match with 25-14 and 25-8 wins. Sevier County’s Bailey Miles had a standout performance with eight points, six digs, one kill and an assist. Hailey Tackett added her typical performance with 18 digs, 17 points, 11 kills, two blocks and an assist. Pigeon Forge’s Ashley “Wojo” Wojnowski led her team with six kills and four blocks. Later Friday night, the Bearettes defeated Carter 25-18, 25-12 and 25-8.

Tigers gridiron needs to win By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer PIGEON FORGE — The Pigeon Forge Tigers gridiron team has grown tired of moral victories, and they know it’s time to start putting some real ones up on the scoreboard. This may be a tough week for the program to turn over that new winning leaf, however, as the Orange-and-Black ballers hit the road to No.7 state-ranked District 3-AA rival Gibbs Eagles for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff tonight. “Gibbs has a very good football team,” said Tigers coach Lee Hammonds. “They

bend, but they don’t break. “But we feel like we can move the ball on them, but we can’t be satisfied with just getting first downs. We’re not going to be satisfied until we get into the end zone. “We feel like now ... it’s time to find a way inside ourselves to play better football and play to win. “I’m a positive coach, and I always will be, but now we need to figure out why we’re not winning and what broke down during a ball game.” There were plenty of those breakdowns to chose from after last week’s seasonopening 35-21 loss to visiting No.4 state-

Pigeon Forge’s Autumn Wilkinson (6) fires off a successful shot through Berean Christian traffic for a first-half goal Friday evening.

Tigers tie Berean 5-5 By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer PIGEON FORGE — The Pigeon Forge Lady Tigers soccer team nearly had its first win of the season against visiting district rival Berean Christian on Friday evening, but two late Lady Eagles goals ended the match in a 5-5 tie. After Berean knotted it at 3s early in the second half, Pigeon Forge’s Kelsey Brooks scored two by the

63-minute mark, coming on an assist from Autumn Wilkinson and on a breakaway unassisted to make it 5-3 Lady Tigers. The Lady Eagles cut it to 5-4 at the 72 minute mark before making it the final with less than two minutes in the contest, however. Pigeon Forge’s Cassie Privett got the Tigers onto the board first at the 7:20 mark, but Berean Christian answered with two goals by the 28-minute mark to take a 2-1 lead over the

home team. Wilkinson knotted it at 2s at the 30-minute mark after running down a high bouncing ball sent up the middle of the field by Caitlin McGinnis. Pigeon Forge’s Callie Clabo gave the Lady Tigers a 3-2 lead heading into the half after Brooks battled with traffic in the middle of the field and sent a sweet pass left to Clabo, who was wide open in front of the Lady Eagles’ goal at the 33-minute mark.

American teen Capra upsets Rezai

NEW YORK (AP) — American teenager Beatrice Capra upset 18th-seeded Aravane Rezai of France 7-5, 2-6, 6-3 Thursday to reach the third round of the U.S. Open in her Grand Slam debut. The 18-year-old Capra is the youngest player left in the women’s field and the lowest-ranked, at 371st. She is from Ellicott City, Md., and trains at the Evert Academy in Delray Beach, Fla. This is the first tourlevel, main-draw event of Capra’s career. She knocked off 95th-ranked Karolina Sprem in the opening round. Capra could face Maria Sharapova next. Capra is even more of an outsider than Melanie Oudin was last year at the U.S. Open when, at age 17, Oudin beat Sharapova en route to the quarterfinals. Rezai twice has reached the fourth round at major tournaments.

Tide’s Dareus ineligible for 2 games

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. (AP) — The NCAA has declared Alabama defensive end Marcell Dareus ineligible for two games for accepting improper benefits. The ruling Thursday also ordered Dareus to repay $1,787 dollars to a charity of his choice before regaining eligibility. The Crimson Tide opens Saturday night against San Jose State and then hosts No. 19 Penn State. Dareus was ruled ineligible for receiving preferential treatment and agent benefits, including airfare, lodging, meals and transportation during two trips to Miami, Fla. Alabama compliance director Mike Ward said Dareus didn’t intentionally violate rules or knowingly accept benefits from an agent. He says the university is considering an appeal.

It’s got to be all 11 of us on offense, defense and special teams. “I think our kids see that now, and I think it’s time in this program that we understand what it’s going to take to turn it around and what it’s going to take to win. “As coaches, we’ve got to stay on them, but at the same time keep our heads up too. We’ve just got to play better. We need a big win in this program. We need to beat somebody we’re really not supposed to beat.�

Federer beats Beck, moves into 3rd round

NEW YORK (AP) — Five-time champion Roger Federer has breezed into the third round at the U.S. Open, serving 15 aces in beating 104th-ranked Andreas Beck of Germany 6-3, 6-4, 6-3. Beck double-faulted 11 times on Thursday, Federer zero. Federer has won 42 of his past 43 matches at Flushing Meadows, the only loss coming in last year’s final. With Andy Roddick’s exit in the second round, and Lleyton Hewitt’s loss in the first, Federer is the only previous winner of the U.S. Open left in the men’s field. Federer is trying to become the first man in the Open era, which began in 1968, to win this tournament six times. Beck has lost in the second round in New York the last four years. He has yet to reach the third round at the Open.

Smokies lose 2nd straight JACKSONVILLE – Seeking to even up the season series against Jacksonville, the Tennessee Smokies were unable to match the Suns hit parade, suffering their second loss of the series, 6-2. The loss gave the Suns the season series win, edging the Smokies seven games to five, and puts the Smokies at 41-25 for the second half (83-52 overall). Jacksonville improved to 38-28 (78-58 overall). Tennessee wasted no time getting on the scoreboard. Tony Campana led off the game with an infield single and then stole second base. Blake Lalli singled to left field, scoring Campana and giving the Smokies the early 1-0 lead. Smokies’ starter Rafael Dolis came out on fire, getting the Suns out in order in the first inning. The Suns got to Dolis the next two innings, however, scoring twice on five hits and putting the Suns ahead 2-1. Brandon Guyer walked to lead off the fourth inning and got to third by stealing his 26th and 27th base of the year. After a Russ Canzler walk, Tony Thomas singled through the left side, evening the score at 2s. The Suns touched Dolis for two more again in the sixth. Jeff Corsaletti hit a two-RBI single in the sixth giving the Suns a 4-2 lead, and that was all they would need for the victory. Dolis (5-4), who took the loss, went 5-2/3 innings, allowing four runs on eight hits and striking out four. Suns’ starter Brad Hand (1-0), making his Double-A debut, scattered three hits over six innings, striking out four. Suns relievers Jay Buente and Jose Ceda kept the Smokies hitless over the final three innings and closed the door on the Smokies. The Smokies will next travel to Zebulon, N.C., to take on the Carolina Mudcats in a four-game series, the final regular season series for the Smokies. Trey McNutt (0-1, 6.52) will be looking for his first win with the Smokies and face off against the Mudcats’ Scott Carroll (3-9, 3.64). The game begins at 7:15 p.m. tonight, and fans can listen to the broadcast on the Smokies Radio Network.

Immunize cattle for fall program As you formulate plans for the fall health program, it is important to include steps that will ensure that cattle are immunized, not just vaccinated. It may seem somewhat confusing to differentiate between vaccinating and immunizing. Producers spend a lot of money and time injecting vaccines into their animals. That is vaccinating. Immunizing is being sure that the animal responds to the vaccine and will build immunity to a disease. Too many times animals are just vaccinated. There are many factors that determine if a vaccine actually works after it is injected. First, let’s take a look at the vaccine. To get a good immune response the vaccine must have as high a potency as possible. The way that a vaccine is handled from the time of manufacture until use can determine effectiveness. When purchasing vaccine, always ask the retailer if the refrigeration unit used to store the vaccine is working properly and has maintained it in the recommended range of 35 to 45 degrees. Also, ask how the vaccine was delivered and if it was maintained at the proper temperature during delivery. Check the expiration date, and do not purchase vaccines that will expire before you will use them. Next, be sure that you take proper care of the vaccine. Bring a cooler to transport the vaccine as well as something to place in the cooler to keep the vaccine from coming in direct contact with ice. Make sure the refrigerator works properly. A study in Arkansas showed that only 27 percent of refrigerators used to store vaccines on farms stayed between 35 degrees and 45

degrees for 95 percent of the time. Handle vaccines carefully the day they are to be used. Keep them in a cooler and do not allow the bottle of vaccine to come in contact with the ice. Only remove the vaccine bottle from the cooler when filling the syringe and return it to the cooler immediately after. Place the filled syringe in the cooler if you are not ready to use it. Only mix the amount of modified live vaccine that can be used within 30 minutes. Other factors can determine if a vaccine actually immunizes an animal. Animals that have a compromised immune system cannot make effective use of vaccines. Also, be sure to handle animals as calmly as possible, not only when working them, but when gathering them. Do not use a “hot stick” unless it is the only option available. Increased stress causes vaccines to work poorly. Use clean syringes and needles, administer the proper dosage, and do not inject into dirty animals and try to work cattle when they are dry. Some things mentioned may seem very elementary; however, it is extremely important that vaccines administered to animals cause an immune response. Animals must have a good level of immunity developed if they are to resist diseases for which they are exposed. — Alan Bruhin is the Sevier County agricultural extension service director.

NEW ORLEANS, La. (AP) — Another oil rig exploded and caught fire Thursday off the Louisiana coast, spreading a mile-long oil sheen in the Gulf of Mexico west of the site of BP’s massive spill. All 13 crew members were rescued. Coast Guard Petty Officer Bill Coklough said the sheen, about 100 feet wide, was spotted near the platform. Firefighting vessels were battling the flames. The company that owns the rig, Houston-based Mariner Energy, did not know what caused the blast, which was reported by a helicopter flying over the area. Crew members were found floating in the water, huddled together in survival outfits called “gumby suits.” “These guys had the presence of mind, used their training to get into those gumby suits before they entered the water. It speaks volumes to safety training and the importance of it because, beyond getting off the rig, there’s all the hazards of the water such as hypothermia,” Coast Guard spokesman Chief Petty Officer John Edwards said. The crew was being flown to a hospital in Houma. Coast Guard Cmdr. Cheri Ben-Iesau said one person was injured, but the company said there were no injuries. Seven Coast Guard helicopters, two airplanes and three cutters were dispatched to the scene. The platform is in about 340 feet of water and about 100 miles south of Louisiana’s Vermilion Bay. It’s location is considered shallow water, much less than the approximately 5,000 feet where BP’s well spewed oil and gas for three months after the April rig explosion. Responding to any oil spill in shallow water would be much easier than in deep water, where crews depend on remote-operated vehicles access equipment on the sea floor. The rig is a fixed platform that was in production at the time of the fire, according to a homeland security operational update obtained by The Associated Press. The update said the platform was producing 58,800 gallons of oil and 900,000 cubic feet of gas per day. The platform can store 4,200 gallons of oil. Louisiana Gov. Bobby Jindal said Mariner Energy officials told him there were seven active production wells on the platform, and they were shut down shortly after the fire broke out. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said President Barack Obama was in a national security meeting at the time of the accident. “We obviously have response assets ready for deployment should we receive reports of pollution in the water,” Gibbs said. The platform is about 200 miles west of BP’s blown-out well. A company report said the well was drilled in the third quarter of 2008.

Chicago gangs to top cop: ‘You’re not playing fair’ By MICHAEL TARM Associated Press Writer CHICAGO — Several current and ex-gang members lashed out at Chicago’s police chief on Thursday, calling his socalled “gang summit” initiative to crack down on crime a wasted effort that will have little effect on the streets of the county’s third largest city. After calling a news conference outside a park district building, gang members complained to assembled TV cameras about the ultimatum police Superintendent Jody Weis gave them at a recent meeting — that if gangs resort to violence, police will go after their leaders. In response, they offered their own message to police: You’re not playing fair. “Is it possible for one person to micromanage a group?” Vice Lords gang member Jim Allen asked reporters, wearing a black baseball cap with the words, “Mess with the Best, Die like the Rest.” “We will not be responsible for anyone’s actions but our own.” Weis is facing mounting criticism for holding the unpublicized Aug. 17 meeting with reputed gang leaders, even though several police departments across the country have relied on similar approaches for decades to help reduce crime. Some reputed members of gangs like the Four Corner Hustlers and the Traveling Vice Lords said they were surprised to see Weis there after being told by their parole officers to show up. Many were visibly angry, with some even leaving the meeting, which was first reported by the Chicago Sun-Times.

The police chief has defended the initiative with the support of Mayor Richard M. Daley and U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald, who likened the tactic to his office holding parolee forums to warn people leaving prison that they’ll be watched. Weis told The Associated Press on Wednesday that his message was simple: “If you should resort to violence, we’ll sharpen our focus on you and really, really make your lives uncomfortable. You have the ability to influence

people within your sphere. You guys are in the position to stop the killing.” Weis said prosecutors at the Aug. 17 meeting threatened attendees that they could be charged under the Racketeering Influenced and Corrupt Organizations Act if killings were traced back to gangs with members attending the meeting. The federal law, commonly known as RICO, provides stiffer penalties for acts performed as part of a criminal organization such as the Mafia.

Israel, Palestinians agree to more talks ROBERT BURNS Associated Press Writer WASHINGTON — Israeli and Palestinian leaders agreed Thursday to keep talking and produce a framework for a permanent peace deal, modest achievements reached amid deep skepticism about success at their first such session in two years. Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu and Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas will meet again on Sept. 14 and 15 in the Middle East, likely at the Egyptian Red Sea resort of Sharm el-Sheik, with an eye toward forging the outline of a pact. They will also meet roughly every two weeks after that. Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton, who hosted the talks at the State Department, will attend the next round. In a public plea for both sides to compromise in the name of peace, Clinton said the Obama administration has no illusions about reaching a quick breakthrough. “We’ve been here before and we know how difficult the road ahead will be,” she said. “There undoubtedly will be obstacles and setbacks. Those who oppose the cause of peace will try in every way possible to sabotage this process, as we have already seen this week.” She was referring to Palestinian attacks on Israelis in the disputed West Bank on Tuesday and Wednesday. The United States’ special Mideast envoy George Mitchell announced the developments after several hours of talks between Netanyahu and Abbas at which the two leaders pledged to work through the region’s deeply ingrained mutual hostility and suspicion to resolve the long-running conflict

LAFAYETTE (AP) — A Macon County family is mourning the loss of a 3-year-old girl who died less than a day after being bitten by a brown recluse spider. Pam White said her great granddaughter, Kaylee Davis, was bitten on her chest by the spider on Tuesday evening. The girl was taken to the Lafayette Hospital, but was allowed to return home that night. The next morning, she was taken to Vanderbilt Children’s Hospital in Nashville where she was given a blood transfusion. She died at the hospital on Wednesday afternoon. An autopsy is being performed to determine the cause of death.

Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton looks on as Palestinian President Mahmoud Abbas, right, and Israeli Prime Minister Benjamin Netanyahu shake hands as she hosts the relaunch of direct negotiations Thursday at the State Department in Washington. in a year’s time. Mitchell refused to discuss specifics of what the framework agreement would entail but said it would lay out the “fundamental compromises” needed for a final settlement. He was unclear about whether the oneyear deadline applied to the framework agreement or a final peace treaty, only saying the goal was to “resolve all of the core issues within one year.” Though “less than a fullfledged treaty,” Mitchell said the framework would “establish the fundamental compromises necessary to enable the parties to then flesh out and complete a comprehensive agreement that will end the conflict and establish a lasting peace.” The compromises will involve the thorniest issues that have dogged the parties for decades: the borders of an eventual Palestinian state, the political status of Jerusalem, the fate of Palestinian refugees and security. Clinton opened the talks with an appeal for the two

leaders to overcome a long history of failed attempts to resolve the conflict and make the difficult compromises needed for peace. “I know the decision to sit at this table was not easy,” said Clinton, who with Mitchell has been working to relaunch talks stalled for 20 months. “We understand the suspicion and skepticism that so many feel borne out of years of conflict and frustrated hopes.” “But, by being here today, you each have taken an important step toward freeing your peoples from the shackles of a history we cannot change and moving toward a future of peace and dignity that only you can create,” she said. Flanked by Abbas and Netanyahu at the head of a U-shaped table in the State Department’s ornate Benjamin Franklin room, Clinton said the Obama administration was committed to a settlement. She stressed, though, that the heavy lifting must be done by Netanyahu and Abbas

with support from the international community, particularly the Arab and Israeli publics. Netanyahu and Abbas vowed to work together but each outlined concessions required from the other. “I see in you a partner for peace,” Netanyahu told Abbas. “Together we can lead our people to a historic future that can put an end to claims and to conflict. Now this will not be easy. A true peace, a lasting peace would be achieved only with mutual and painful concessions from both sides.” Abbas called on Israel to end Jewish settlements in the West Bank and other areas that the Palestinians want to be part off their own state. Netanyahu insisted that any agreement must assure Israel’s security as a Jewish state. “We do know how hard are the hurdles and obstacles we face during these negotiations — negotiations that within a year should result in an agreement that will bring peace,” Abbas said.

BETHEL, Ohio (AP) — For a second time, an Ohio woman has given birth to a baby who couldn’t wait and arrived on the drive to the hospital. Christina Schuler’s 8-pound, 11-ounce son was born Tuesday in the front seat of the family’s pickup truck. Her husband pulled over less than a mile from their hospital in southwest Ohio’s Clermont County. The woman from Bethel says her labor was even shorter than it was in December 2006, when she gave birth to her son, Ethan, in a car. The Schulers also have one other child. The father, Nathan Schuler, says if the couple has any more children, they’ll have to leave for the hospital a lot earlier.

Human ashes found in traffic stop

FARSON, Wyo. (AP) — The powdery substance that Wyoming Highway Patrol troopers found in a zip-close bag during a recent traffic stop didn’t turn out to be drugs after all. Sgt. Stephen Townsend of the patrol says then when troopers pulled over two men in a car Wednesday, they found small amounts of marijuana and drug paraphernalia and thought the bag might hold illegal drugs. Troopers contacted the car’s owner — the girlfriend of one of the men — and asked her.

By VETA KING When 4-H began in the early 1900s, the University of Tennessee’s county extension agent was encouraging young girls to use tin cans for canning. “Owing to the ruggedness of the roads,” the agent said that the girls could “never get glass jars away from here in safety.” These early clubs, the girls’ canning clubs and the boys’ corn clubs were 4-H’s predecessors.

When a team wins, View stars with astronomical society individuals win Submitted Report

I made a mistake in last week’s column. It was a typo. I was thinking one word and keyed in another word. And I still didn’t catch it with my proofreading. I should have written “four� when I wrote “eight.� So the paragraph should have read: “Recent surveys have reported that approximately 50 percent of a worker’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 eighthour workday results in about four hours of actual work.� And then, just in case you did not see last week’s column, I followed the above with, “The current situation for many organizations validates an emphasis from one of my past columns, ‘Water the flowers and eliminate the weeds if you want your garden to grow and flourish.’� This, of course, means that leaders should make a point to appreciate and take care of the people who are producing. At the same time, leaders should either “fire up or fire out� the people who are not producing. Firing people up can include several things. It is helping them to see that individuals make the plays; teams win the championships. It is helping them to see that they have an opportunity to improve as individuals as they help the organization improve. It is about helping them to realize that what is good for the organization can be good for them as individuals. As the business or any organization succeeds and is rewarded, the individuals can succeed and be rewarded. In his book, Fast Food Nation, Eric Schlosser quotes McDonald’s founder Ray Kroc when Kroc was upset that some of his franchisees were not following the guidelines that had made McDonald’s successful. Kroc said, “We cannot trust some people who are nonconformists. We will make conformists out of them in a hurry. The organization cannot trust the individual; the individual must trust the organization.� I think we can understand what Kroc was say-

ing. Sure, good leaders want the best for individuals, but the business is not there primarily to make the individuals successful; the individuals are there to make the business successful. And, if the business is successful, the individuals can share in the success. A good example of this is found in college sports. Look at the historically successful college teams and then look at the successful paths of many of the teams’ players. On the other hand, often when the teams fail, the paths of the players fall short. We learn a lot when we learn how to contribute our individual talents, abilities and strengths for the good of the team. We learn a lot when we realize that every person in an organization is always contributing to the team either in a positive way or detracting from the team in a negative way. No one is ever just “there.� When leaders think about firing people up or firing them out, a philosophy I have emphasized for years is, “Motivation without education leads to frustration.� And recently, I ran across an anonymous quote that parallels this thinking: “If someone is going in the wrong direction, the person doesn’t need motivation to speed up. The person needs education to turn around.� — Š 2010 by Carl Mays, speaker and author whose mentoring site, www., is based on his book and program, “A Strategy For Winning.� E-mail to, call 436-7478 or visit

TOWNSEND — The Smoky Mountain Astronomical Society will host a star party to view the heavens Sept. 11.

In fact, the donations made last Thursday were ready to be put to use within 24 hours. The summer and winter months, Prowell said, are when the need is most critical; that is when donations tend to go down as people go on vacations and observe holidays. To fully meet the needs of area hospitals, Prowell said they need 300 to 500 donations every day, with 350 the minimum. On average, however, they only get about 275 daily. With a required waiting period of 56 days between donations, Prowell said a person could give blood five or six times a year. He’s pleased when he hears about repeat donors like Newton and Perkins. “That’s a great testament for donating blood,� he said. “They are the real heroes of the community.� Aside from knowing they’ve helped their fellow man, there are a few more benefits. The free T-shirt and occasional treats — not including the juice and crackers provided after donating — are the least. The major benefit is the membership donors receive. For only one blood donation they receive a 12-month membership to Medic, which they can use to

Mountain Astronomical Society. “The summer ‘Milky Way’ is perfectly placed this time of year.� Persons will gather in the parking area of the Townsend Visitors Center. A short walk through a grassy field will be required to access the telescopes. Visitors are advised to bring a chair or blanket, wear comfortable shoes and clothing and, if interested, bring binoculars and telescopes. The Smoky Mountain Astronomical Society holds

monthly meetings at Pellissippi State Technical Community College in Knoxville. The society chooses the locations for its star parties based on sky darkness and access. The star party is free and lasts as late as 11 p.m. In the event of rain or overcast skies, it will be cancelled.

waive blood processing fees at any hospital, Prowell said. That’s a savings of about $160 for doing something that only took a few minutes. Because not everyone can donate, Medic also provides options for churches and schools where coverage for members and other family members can be obtained through the donations of others. Substitute donations

can also be made in the name of others. In all the years she’s

donated blood, Newton said she hasn’t ever needed a transfusion, but that hasn’t kept her from giving. “You never know when you might need it,� she said. One upcoming blood drive can let you show your support for the Tennessee Volunteers during the Vols vs. Gators blood drive the week of Sept. 13. “Gator Hater� T-shirts will be provided for all donors at all sites.

Sevier County Agricultural Extension Agents – 1914 to 1998

Submitted by County Extension Office

This photograph appeared in County Agent Walter O. Sharp’s 1918 annual report of his activities in Sevier County. Sharp was instrumental in organizing early boys’ corn clubs which later became 4-H clubs. to exhibit products and offered separate prizes for their entries. Members contributed to the war effort in the 1940s by collecting scrap materials, assisting in food production through “victory gardens�, and working in the food supply programs. They distributed a variety of seeds to communities including the new vegetable, garden soybean, according to the history. For the first time, in 1943, 4-H boys’ clubs and girls’ clubs were combined. This helped in streamlining the war drives in scrap metals, bonds, silk hose and others. Under the direction of County Agent Joe Woods in the 1960s, the Sevier County Extension Office hired a third fulltime agent to work with 4-H, creating a growth in the number of clubs. Mike Sharp was the first fulltime 4-H Agent in Sevier County assigned totally to the development of the 4-H program. Livestock shows were increasing, and 4-H camps and judging teams were becoming more popular, according to the history. Faye (Idol) Hochnedel came to Sevier County in 1969 with an assignment of 50 percent 4-H work and 50 percent Home Demonstration work. In the late 1970’s, the state 4-H Office began looking for ways to involve non-farm youth in the local 4-H program. New projects, such as economics, conservation, wildlife, fashion revue and photography were introduced to offer a wider 4-H curriculum. In the 1960s, the Sevier County Extension Office hired a third fulltime agent to work with 4-H, creating a growth in the number of clubs. Livestock shows were increasing, and 4-H camps and judging teams were becoming more popular, according to the history. The county began placing in state 4-H competitions, and members were increasingly becoming more involved in leadership activities. Today, according to current

Extension Agent Glenn Turner, Sevier County 4-H is recognized as one of the strongest county programs in Tennessee due to member participation and community support. Current 4-H Program Educators Samantha Franklin and Suzie Thead, along with many 4-H volunteer leaders continue the strong 4-H traditions, offering a multitude of learning experiences for the nearly 4,000 4-H members. Even though times have changed, boys and girls continue to learn basic life skills necessary for any generation, Turner stresses. As Sevier County 4-H Club members look to the past and prepare for the

future, they have a history depicting rural life here. Early girls’ club members were taught how to raise good laying hens and how to patch clothes. One girl failed to enter the patch competition telling that her patch was in the field on her father’s overalls. Early clubs worked with the rolling stores to carry seeds, increasing vegetable production during the war. Boys worked with families to produce cane for molasses that replaced sugar in wartime, and girls aided in the start of hot lunches in schools. Turner wishes to encourage participation in the Sevier County Fair’s 4-H Recognition Day. He is searching

Extension’s Centennial Celebration this year. One hundred years ago, according to University Extension research, the nation’s industrial revolution was in full swing, and these new urban families working in factories were relying on the remaining farmers for food and clothing. “By the end of 1911, the first six county Extension agents had been hired and were teaching farm families to make the best use of their resources,� the research states. These agents (cooperatively between UT, United States Department of Agriculture, and the counties) soon included boys and girls in their farm and homemaker training. They taught better methods for greater farm yield and about labor-saving devices like the fireless cooker. Here in Sevier County Miss Mabel Moore, county agent, was attending educational rallies and area schools to organize the first girls’ canning clubs in 1915. County Agent Charles L. Doughty organized the first “corn club� for boys in 1916 with 41 members. Twenty-five of these boys rode the Knoxville, Sevierville and Eastern Railroad train to Knoxville for a day at the East Tennessee Farmer’s Convention in May. One summer day that year, they presented a program for the Teacher’s Institute at Sevierville in July followed by dinner at the Central Hotel and a swim in the Pigeon River. These early clubs worked with area community fairs before there was a county fair. Boys and girls of the early 1900s were learning about corn, poultry, canning and sewing with some corn club boys producing as much as 70 bushels of corn in 1918. A sign of these times was a program teaching girls about the sanitation of outdoor toilets in 1919, a program by Home Demonstration Agent Miss Annie L. Whittle. Much of the county’s 4-H history was detailed in 1986 by then Extension Agent Alan Bruhin, 4-H leader Janet King and her daughter and 4-H member Diana King. Their report detailed some of the club’s activities from 1914 through 1985, telling stories of those who promoted the four ‘H’s — head, heart, hands and health. School age boys and girls were participating in such programs as a clothing contest, strawberry project, a rally day and achievement day. There was a farm pest eradication program in the 1940s in which members were encouraged to eliminate rats, crows, moles, mice and sparrows. In 1942 the Sevier County Fair Association encouraged 4-H Clubs

Wife may want to talk to lawyer, change locks while husband away

For Better Or Worse

Tina’s Groove

Dear Annie: Last May, my 56-year-old husband met a woman on Facebook and quickly became infatuated. She lives in Germany. We live in Kansas. My husband thinks he knows everything about her and believes she is completely on the up and up. In October, the two of them plan to meet in Boston and drive up to Maine for a week’s vacation. I was informed of this plan and was specifically told I was not invited. My husband sees nothing wrong with this little excursion. He says he loves me and doesn’t think he needs to be bound by the “conventions of marriage.” If I get upset, he accuses me of not wanting him to be happy. I’m sure he’ll buy me a souvenir. We’ve been married for 11 years and had a pretty solid relationship until this. Now I feel humiliated and bitter. Am I wrong? — Mrs. Jerk Dear Mrs.: Married people who say they don’t want to be bound by the conventions of marriage are trying to justify an affair. Unless you also want an open marriage, this only benefits him. It’s time to talk to a lawyer. Then tell him to have a good time, and let him know you’ll be changing the locks. What nerve. Dear Annie: My grown children found out their grandmother had died by reading it in the local paper. We were never close. At one time, my husband was having an affair, and my motherin-law would call to give my husband messages

from his girlfriend. After that, I hardly spoke to her, and she never came to visit again. My husband and I worked out our problems and stayed married. But at his funeral, my mother-in-law sat next to me, displacing my children, in order to ask me to return several items she had given my husband years before. Obviously, my relationship with her was not good, but my children kept in touch. They used to call her often. So when Grandma passed and no one told us, my children were very hurt. My children and I went to the viewing, and my sisterin-law would not even look at us. My son was so upset about the entire mess that he walked out. None of us attended the funeral. My daughter and I made a donation to her favorite charity and never received a thank-you note. Even my husband’s aunt, with whom we used to exchange Christmas cards, has stopped contact. It has been a year, but I am still hurt and angry, and so are my children. They don’t have a lot of family left. I would like to contact my sister-in-law, but don’t want to get into an argument. Any suggestions? — C. Dear C.: Your in-laws

t o d ay ’ s p u z z l e

are not interested in a relationship with you, but we hope they are willing to stay in touch with your children. If the kids can put aside their anger, suggest they contact their aunt to say hello and see how everyone is doing — no recriminations or lectures. Her response should give them an idea of whether or not things can improve. Dear Annie: I am 79 and remember home viewings of the deceased. To me, it is easier to accept death after seeing the body laid out. It is so obviously not the person I knew and loved that it makes it easier to accept the death. I am comforted to think they are in a better place. A dear friend died at 29, and since I could not attend the funeral, I have not really come to terms with it. Sometimes it seems she’s still alive. However, I hate the idea of taking pictures. It freaks me out. It is certainly not the way I want to be remembered. — Minnesota Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
