Bush to visit Sevier County

INSIDE

Former president to speak at conference 5Hornets chasing Chase? Pigeon Forge looks to stun district rival Carter Sports, Page B1

By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — Former President George W. Bush couldn’t make it to Sevier County during his two terms in office, but he’s scheduled to be here Wednesday as part of a Christian conference. Bush will speak at the Sevierville Events Center Wednesday evening as a guest speaker for

the “Celebrate America!” day in the Celebrators conference. Literature on their event calls Celebrators “the leading Christian conference for Bush older adults and mature believers.” It is an outreach of Phi Waldrep Ministries. The event is sold out and will be closed to the news media, said Sam McElroy, executive director of Phil Waldrep Ministries. “The event’s been sold out for months,” he said. “People really responded well to it.”

Bush spokesman David Sherzer confirmed the president is scheduled to make the trip. “He’ll offer some reflecting from his presidency as well as lessons he learned about leadership and decision making, and I’m sure he’ll talk about the impact of his faith on his decision to run for the presidency and on his decisions as president,” Sherzer said. Bush was scheduled to visit the Great Smoky Mountains National Park for Earth Day in 2005, but canceled the visit due to bad weather. He spoke at the Knoxville airport instead. The Celebrators conference has been coming to Sevier County for

many years. “It’s a Christian conference that we have annually,” McElroy said. “We used to have it in Gatlinburg.” Next week’s conference runs from Monday through Thursday. In addition to the address from Bush, it will feature a concert by singer Sandi Patty, music from worship leader Charles Billingsley and daily addresses by David Jeremiah. Celebrators will host a second event here Oct. 19 to 22 at the Smoky Mountain Convention Center in Pigeon Forge. n jfarrell@themountainpress.com

SMARM celebrates miracles at banquet By DEREK HODGES Staff writer SEVIERVILLE — It’s been a year of challenges for the supporters of Smoky Mountain Area Rescue Ministries, just as it has been for the local residents the agency serves. Like social service organizations across the nation, the ministry has seen demand for its offerings skyrocket as the recession drags on. Summer has turned into holidays, and the holidays have turned into something entirely new. That means SMARM has seen as many requests for help during the sum-

mers — the traditional slower time — as it usually sees during the busy winter months. It also means the staff members and volunteers have found themselves running on fumes. Still, boundless optimism ran over Thursday evening as they held their eighth annual Streams of Mercy banquet at the Events Center. “Our cup is never halfempty; it’s always halffull,” SMARM Executive Director Dick Wellons said. “We’re thankful that we’re able to minister to these folks. This is just a great community to work in. We are so blessed to be able to serve the people of

Memory Walk

Mary Evelyn “Bo” Trotter, the member of a pioneer Gatlinburg hotel family and a prominent Sevier County Realtor, died Thursday at the age of 84. She was the daughter of Steve and Pearl Whaley, who built the Riverside Hotel in the 1920s, a decade before the coming of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The Whaley family operated the Riverside for five decades as the park and Gatlinburg became the tourist mecca that it is today. Trotter’s brother, Austin “Dick” Whaley, was the first mayor of Gatlinburg when the town incorporated in 1945. She and her husband, James T. “Big Jim” Trotter, and her brother, Bruce J. Whaley, developed the River Terrace motel across the Little Pigeon River from the Riverside in downtown Gatlinburg, beginning in 1958. The Trotters were active in state and national hotel association circles. After Mr. Trotter’s death in 1985, she became See Trotter, Page A4

Home receives recognition as ’09 ‘Angel’ U.S. Dep. Phil Roe, R-Johnson City, nominated the Smoky Mountain Children’s Home as a 2009 Angel in Adoption for its advocacy of adoption issues. The Congressional Coalition on Adoption Institute, which runs the Angels in Adoption program, honored the home, along with more than 190 agencies and individuals nationwide, at an awards ceremony in Washington. The children’s home was honored for its service as a residential care center and adoption placement agency. Its philosophy comes from

TVA ships coal ash at swift pace By JAY REEVES Associated Press Writer BIRMINGHAM, Ala. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Tennessee Valley Authority is shipping coal ash from a huge spill to an Alabama landfill at a faster pace than first announced, a change the federal utility said Friday was aimed at cleaning up the environmental mess earlier than planned. An increase in dredging operations at the Emory River in Kingston, Tenn., has allowed TVA to increase shipments to the Arrowhead Landfill in Perry County from 85 rail cars each day to 110 daily, said utility spokeswoman Barbara Martocci.

Because of the quickened pace, Martocci said, TVA hopes to complete the dredging by spring, months ahead of schedule. The Environmental Protection Agency, which approved TVAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disposal plans, is aware of the change, said spokeswoman Laura Niles. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The main concern is that the rail cars are properly lined and covered while transporting the coal ash and that the landfill is able to continue to manage large quantities of waste (which it is), as per the approved plan,â&#x20AC;? she wrote in an e-mail. A spokesman with the Alabama Department of Environmental Management, Scott Hughes, said the

landfill remained within its permitted daily disposal limit of 15,000 tons of waste after the increase in shipments. About 5.4 million cubic yards of coal ash laced with toxic substances spilled out of a holding pond at TVAâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Kingston Fossil Plant on Dec. 22. Ash that spilled into a nearby waterway is being dredged and shipped by railroad to the Alabama landfill. The trains travel from Tennessee through Birmingham to the landfill in Uniontown in western Alabama. Critics have accused the utility of dumping on a poor, mostly black Alabama county, but elected officials say they need the revenue from landfill dumping fees.

McNair to suicidal youths: Live to see better days NASHVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Shortly before former NFL quarterback Steve McNairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mistress killed him and then herself, he recorded a public service announcement that urges young people thinking about suicide to call a hotline and â&#x20AC;&#x153;live to see better days.â&#x20AC;? The Tennessee Department of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities shelved the announcement after McNairâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s July 4 death, and it never aired. The state released three versions of it to The Associated Press this week in response to a public records request. In them, McNair says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Each year too many young people are taking their own lives. So if youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re feeling really down and have even thought about suicide, call 1-800-273-TALK, and live to see better

Among those, Wellons pointed out Thursday evening, are two families heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seen recently: one that rents a home with no heater; another lost everything when the home they were renting burned down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Those are just a couple of the stories we hear every day,â&#x20AC;? Wellons said. To help inspire the crowd, the group called in former WBIR-TV anchor Bill Williams, who created

Walkers who pre-register by Monday and raise $50 qualify get a free long-sleeve T-shirt. Those who raise $100 earn an aluminum water bottle in addition to other incentives. Those who turn in $200 on or before the day of the walk will receive a soft-sided cooler and other

days.â&#x20AC;? McNair donated his time to film the announcement in April on a sports field at Goodpasture Christian School in the Nashville suburb of Goodlettsville, where he had held summer youth football camps, then-department spokeswoman Jill Hudson said in July. Post-production work was under way on 10-, 15-, and 30-second versions when McNair died. Last year, Tennessee received a $1.5 million federal grant to help prevent suicide among young people. The Tennessee Suicide Prevention Network reports that suicide is the third leading cause of death for those ages 15 to 24, and about a third of Tennessee counties have suicide rates that exceed the national average.

S t a te brie f s Jury seated for carjack-killing trial

KNOXVILLE (AP) — A jury has been seated in Knoxville to hear the murder trial of a man accused in the carjack-killings of a young couple. The Knoxville News Sentinel reported the jury seated early Friday afternoon includes seven women and five men. The panel will hear the trial of Lemaricus Davidson, who prosecutors contend was the ringleader among four people charged in the kidnapping, rape and slayings of 21-year-old Channon Christian and 23-year-old Christopher Newsom in January 2007. Seating of six alternates continues for the trial now scheduled to begin Oct. 19.

Jury deliberates triple slaying case

CLEVELAND (AP) — An East Tennessee jury is deliberating a second day at the trial of a woman charged in the 1999 fatal shootings of a cousin and two acquaintances as they knelt with their hands bound behind their backs. The jury at Cleveland is trying to reach a verdict in the triple slaying case against Twanna “Tart” Blair. A co-defendant, Maurice Johnson, was convicted in August on three counts of first-degree murder and one count of especially aggravated robbery. He has been sentenced to life without parole.

UT professor compiles book on grass

KNOXVILLE (AP) — Henry Fribourg spent 53 years watching grass grow. Now the professor emeritus at the University of Tennessee College of Agricultural Sciences has compiled a book on the subject. “Tall Fescue for the Twenty-First Century” is the story of the rise in popularity of tall fescue as a turf and forage grass as well as the efforts to solve a mystery: Why did some cattle consuming the grass fail to thrive and some mares give birth to dead foals? Fribourg, his coeditors and 59 contributors describe the complicated series of scientific investigations that involved researchers from around the world and ultimately placed the blame on a fungus.

Bible verses banned from football field By DORIE TURNER Associated Press Writer FORT OGLETHORPE, Ga. (AP) — When the Warriors of LakeviewFort Oglethorpe High take the field Friday night, the football team won’t be running through the cheerleaders’ usual banner bearing a Bible verse. The school district banned the banners last week over concerns they were unconstitutional and could provoke a lawsuit, angering many in the deeply religious north Georgia town of Fort Oglethorpe. “I’m just kind of unnerved about it,” said 18-year-old Cassandra Cooksey, a recent graduate who often prayed with her fellow marching band members before football games. “It seems like the majority of people in our community want this and they don’t have a problem with it, so I think they should be allowed to have the signs if they want to.” The move has galvanized the community. Hundreds of people attended a rally this week supporting the signs, which

included messages such as: “Commit to the Lord, whatever you do, and your plans will succeed.” Many students attended class Friday wearing shirts with Bible verses and painted their cars with messages that read: “Warriors for Christ.” “When you get a whole bunch of teenagers mad, this is what happens. We stand up for what believe in,” 16-year-old Shelby Rouse said over the roar of a pre-game pep rally. The 900-student school began running through the Biblical banners shortly after the Sept. 11 terror attacks, and school Principal Jerry Ransom said he enthusiastically supported it then. But Catoosa County schools Superintendent Denia Reese banned the practice after a parent complained. Reese said the school board’s attorney advised her the signs violated federal law because they were being displayed by the cheerleaders during a school-sponsored event. “I regret that the cheerleaders cannot display their signs in the football

Woman charged in helicopter jailbreak plot NASHVILLE (AP) — Federal agents arrested a Nashville woman in a creative jailbreak plot that involved a convicted gang leader directing his underlings to build a small helicopter and learn how to fly it. The Tennessean reported Friday that a judge Thursday bound the case against 35-year-old Faith Readus over to a grand jury and ordered her detained. She is accused in a criminal complaint of conspiring to aid in an attempt to spring Jamal Shakir from federal custody. Court records show Shakir’s

planned escape was part of a plot to renew his criminal enterprise known as the Rollin’ 90 Crips. “Even jail bars don’t necessarily stop communication and plots” between gang members, federal prosecutor Sunny A.M. Koshy told the newspaper. The woman’s appointed attorney, Jennifer Thompson of Nashville, said at the hearing that such a plot was ridiculous. Thompson said it was “really outrageous she’s being charged when the plan is to get a homemade helicopter kit and learn

to drive the helicopter by taking a couple of classes.” The defense attorney could not be reached by telephone for comment Friday. Shakir faces multiple life sentences for arranging drug deals and murders, executing power over a gang enterprise that stretched from Los Angeles to Nashville. Shakir, of Los Angeles, was convicted in May 2008 of orchestrating a nationwide drug ring from a house he owned in East Nashville, laundering money and killing nine people between 1994 and 1997.

Expert: Ploy in abduction used before By KRISTIN M. HALL Associated Press Writer NASHVILLE — The search for a Tennessee newborn whose mom says he was kidnapped by a woman posing as an immigration agent entered its fourth day Friday, and a missing child expert said similar ploys have been used in other abductions. Yair Anthony Carillo was taken from his home Tuesday, just four days after he was born to 30-year-old Maria Gurrolla. She says a heavyset white woman with blonde hair arrived at her home posing as an immigration agent,

attacked her with a knife, then took the boy. On Friday, investigators released a sketch of the suspect developed with Gurrolla’s help and said it will be posted on billboards in Tennessee and other Southeastern states. Tennessee Bureau of Investigation spokeswoman Kristin Helm said leads in the case have begun to diminish and the billboard is intended to spur more tips from the public. Cathy Nahirny, a senior analyst for infant abduction cases at the National Center for Missing & Exploited Children, said there have been at least two other recent cases where an abductor used the

same ploy. “We need to get the word out to our immigrant communities,” Nahirny said. “Anybody that claims they are from federal law enforcement agencies, you have the right and you should ask for photo identification.” In March, Amalia Tabata Pereira was accused of taking a 2-monthold girl from a woman at a health clinic in Plant City, Fla., east of Tampa. Police said she told the baby’s parents she was an immigration official and that they were going to be deported. She was arrested a day later and turned the baby over to authorities.

NEW YORK (AP) — A CBS News employee pleaded not guilty Friday to trying to blackmail David Letterman for $2 million in a plot that spurred the TV host to acknowle d g e sexual relationships with Letterman women w h o worked on his show. Robert J. “Joe” Halderman, a producer for the true-crime show “48 Hours,” entered the plea in a Manhattan court as he was arraigned on one count of attempted first-degree grand larceny, punishable by five to 15 years upon conviction. Bail was set at $200,000. Assistant District Attorney Judy Salwen told the judge Halderman was in debt, but did not elaborate. “The evidence is compelling,” she said. “It shows the defendant is desperate, and he is capable of doing anything.”

Three Cheers Local officials earn praise for awards won for events

Obama can’t be listening to far left You’ve got to love Michael Moore. He’s running around promoting his new film that says capitalism is a terrible system, a rotten to the core philosophy. But hold it. Didn’t Moore have to raise money to make the movie through capitalistic vehicles? Or did his dad give him the dough? In one of his many interviews, Moore began lecturing President Obama: “You are one of us. ... This is not the time to be the representative of the private health insurance industry. We need you to stand up. ... And we want universal health care for every single American, and we want it controlled in a single payer system...” Wow, anything else, Mike? I’d love to know how President Obama feels about being told what to do by the likes of Michael Moore, a man who admires the Cuban political system. I’d like to believe the president tunes out radical stuff, but there is growing evidence that he does not. When asked about the ACORN scandal, Obama said he wasn’t paying much attention to it. Hard to believe, but possible. He also said he had more important things to worry about. True, but you can walk and chew gum at the same time. The president should have condemned the corruption at ACORN, a group that fervently supports him. But the president did not. The far left also wants out of Afghanistan, continuing to believe that al-Qaida and other terrorists can be contained by simply ignoring their presence. At first, Obama labeled Afghanistan a “war of necessity.” Now, he can’t decide whether to honor his commanding general’s request for more troops there. Is Obama listening to the radical left on the issue? And then there’s the loopy Center for American Progress run by Obama adviser John Podesta. They want a huge value-added tax dumped on consumers in order to pay for entitlements. A VAT would pick your pocket when you buy things. That would hurt working Americans big-time. Didn’t Obama promise not to raise taxes on working people? I believe he did. But the far left doesn’t seem to care about that and is pushing the president to hike taxes. So the picture is pretty clear. The president remains under pressure from the far left to radically change the country. But all the polls say that most Americans don’t want radical change. They don’t believe in it, to use an Obama platitude. President Clinton faced the same pressure in the early 1990s but manned up. He disappointed the radical left with welfare reform and a number of other moderate/right positions. He was easily re-elected in 1996. But I’ll make a prediction: Barack Obama will not be reelected if he continues dancing on the far left side of the floor. Michael Moore and his crew speak for a very few Americans.

The only way Sevier County can remain a top tourist destination is to have local officials produce quality, entertaining and interesting events to bring them here. That is certainly the case for Gatlinburg, Sevierville and Pigeon Forge. All three cities earned awards during the recent convention and expo of the International Festivals and Events Association. Each year more than 1,000 events held around the world are entered in the group’s contest, and each year local activities earn awards. When you live here it’s hard to appreciate the caliber of events and programs put on by the three cities, but in fact they are really something special. From the midnight parade in Gatlinburg to Barbeque & Bluegrass in Sevierville to Wilderness Wildlife Week in Pigeon Forge, officials come up with great events and activities year-round to delight our visitors — and our locals as well. Residents of Sevier County are always encouraged to attend any of the events held in our tourist destinations.

Many thanks to volunteers who picked up trash, litter

It wasn’t the best Saturday to be picking up trash from roadways and stream banks, but dozens braved rain last weekend for the annual Roads & Rivers Day, put on by keep Sevier Beautiful. Each year we have this event to get volunteers together to do what citizens ought to be doing anyway: Keeping our roads, streams and countryside free of debris and trash. The people who turned out were young and old, male and female, but all dedicated to maintaining the beauty that is Sevier County. From one end of the county to the other, armies of people with gloves, sacks and a will to do good fanned out over the roadways and streams. They collected litter and trash discarded thoughtlessly by uncaring and insensitive individuals who think of the whole world as their garbage dump. It could be discouraging, but it isn’t to the many people who work hard to clean up the mess. All of Sevier County should be grateful to those who came out last weekend to do their part.

New Gatlinburg attraction deserves a visit from locals

When Christus Gardens departed Gatlinburg last year, it was a significant loss. Now others have opened Christ in the Smokies Museum & Gardens, showing confidence in the community that a new and faith-based attraction will succeed. Mark Pedro, creative director for Christus Gardens, has joined with developer Billy Proffitt to open the business. The owner of the land had planned to construct condos and a hotel on the property, but the sour economy got in the way. Now this new attraction has risen, and it deserves a visit and support. Christ in the Smokies has all new pieces, including wax figurines of 11 scenes that follow Jesus’ life from birth to Ascension. Auctions and sales produced many of the items in the attraction, and others have been duplicated from what was seen in Christus Gardens. There is a video about the Old testament, a theater and much more. Christ in the Smokies is located at 510 River Road. It’s open daily from 9 a.m. to 9 p.m. Give this new attraction a look-see.

Political view

Gatlinburg police due credit for rescue during mudslide

Public forum

Editor: We would like to tell our story ourselves about the rescue at 1183 Ski Mountain Road on Sept. 26. Our electricity went off for just a few minutes at around 3 p.m. We thought it was due to the weather, but it was not. We came to the middle floor where one of us looked out the window to see that we had a mudslide at our chalet. We called 911 and told them we were trapped and that the mud had slid down in the driveway up against our vehicles and we had no way out. The police were the first ones to get to us. Then the firemen came. After hours of trying to decide how to get us out, the officers called out to us to run to the back of the chalet due to a second slide

coming down to the chalet. By that time we were tired of waiting on the firemen to decide a way out and waiting on ropes, etc. We decided to hike out on the mountain beside of our chalet, which led us to another chalet. The police officers went with us. They are our heroes. It was told earlier by someone that a ladder from the firemen rescued us. We never saw a ladder and were certainly not rescued by them. We all heard one of them say they needed to get in dry clothes and get their men off the mountain to safety. The police officers walked every step with us through the mountain. dripping wet. Officer Jerry Merica had recently had ankle surgery and never one time complained. Two of the eight women were a 67-year-old and a 75-year-old. Without the police officers, they would have never made it. The police officers were Lt. Bennett. Jerry Merica, Lucas Walker and Sgt. Farmer and officer

Justice. If we have forgotten to mention any officer, we apologize. Once we reached the top of the mountain, they had a van waiting to take us to another chalet. The police officers continued to check on us throughout the evening. Officer Justice, along with officers Walker and Merica, came by the new chalet on Sunday to check and see if we needed anything. They took all of us and dropped us off at a local pancake house so we could get something to eat. Gatlinburg has a great police department. We finally were able to get our vehicles on Wednesday night. It took them that long to dig them out. I hope Timber Tops will be able to make better decisions in the event this should ever happen again. This will be a learning experience for them, I’m sure. It truly was for the eight of us.

Gate splits border community, unites it in disdain By JOHN CURRAN Associated Press Writer DERBY LINE, Vt. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For decades, the towns of Derby Line, Vt., and Stanstead, Quebec, have functioned as one community. Located on either side of the border, they share a sewer system, emergency services, snowplowing duties and the borderstraddling Haskell Free Library and Opera House, where a skinny black line across the hardwood floor of the reading room marks the international border running through the property. Work began Thursday, though, to erect of a pair of 5-foot-tall steel gates across two previously unguarded residential streets â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a project that is dividing the towns physically but uniting them in displeasure. Border authorities call the gates a necessary evil to stem smuggling and illegal alien crossings. Locals say thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s enough security â&#x20AC;&#x201D; surveillance cameras and patrols by U.S. Customs and Border Protection â&#x20AC;&#x201D; as it is. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always considered Derby and Stanstead like brother and sister,â&#x20AC;? said Mary Oâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;Donnell, 57, of Stanstead, walking into the library to use a computer Friday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always been on friendly terms.

A truck drives past Pelow Hill Road near where posts for the new gates will be installed across the U.S.-Canadian border in Derby Line, Vt., on Friday. Now, suddenly, 9/11 hits and everybody in the U.S. freaks out. So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re now going to get some really ugly things at the end of the streets that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think is going to serve much of a purpose.â&#x20AC;? The remote-controlled steel gates, which are in the process of being installed, will open for emergency vehicles, border agents and snow plows, but they will cut off automotive access by civilians on Phelps and Lee streets, which run perpendicular to the border. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Over the years, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve noted that criminal smuggling organizations are bringing people in from all over the world to use those

roads in the Derby Line area to smuggle people into the U.S. from Canada,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Henry, operations officer for the U.S. Border Patrol. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People are also using those roads to smuggle people into Canada from the U.S.â&#x20AC;?

Many who are caught smuggling aliens across the border using the streets have been found to be in possession of maps â&#x20AC;&#x201D; downloaded from the Internet â&#x20AC;&#x201D; showing the layout, officials say. Last month, an alleged

Craft Show

con man who had confounded authorities all over the world was caught here. Juan GuzmanBetancourt told the Border Patrol he had unknowingly walked across the border into Vermont from Canada after his car broke down. But by then, plans were already in the works for the gates, which will hang from two granite-faced steel posts on either side of the roadways. One gate is being paid for by the Royal Canadian Mounted Police, the other by the U.S. Department of Homeland Security. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be maintained by both countries. Locals donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t question the need for border security. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The USA has the right to take the measures, as a sovereign state has the right to take the measures it deems necessary to protect its borders and its people,â&#x20AC;? said Andrew Preston, 70, of nearby Baldwinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Mills, Quebec. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But some of the fallout Chapter 7 â&#x20AC;˘

from that, unfortunately, is that it harms communities like these,â&#x20AC;? said Preston, who was using the library Friday. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the psychological impact of tightened security that bothers some. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t consider the border a border,â&#x20AC;? said drugstore owner Roland Roy, who sits on the threemember board of trustees for the Village of Derby Line. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We consider the village as all one. These gates split the community.â&#x20AC;? Two existing border crossings â&#x20AC;&#x201D; one on Route 5 in Derby Line, another along Interstate 91 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; handle most of the international traffic. The unguarded streets are used primarily by locals, many of them familiar faces to the border authorities. For now, Church Street â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which runs parallel to the others and leads to the front door of the Haskell Free Library â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will remain unguarded, and with no gate.

Rio wins right to host the 2016 Olympics COPENHAGEN (AP) — Like sweet, sultry samba music, Rio hit all the right notes. Chicago had Barack Obama. Tokyo had $4 billion in the bank. Madrid had powerful friends. But none of that mattered. Rio de Janeiro had the enchanting story — of about 400 million sports-mad people on a giant untapped and vibrant continent yearning, hoping, that the Olympics finally might come to them. And the International Olympic Committee was hooked. Olympians, we’ll see you on Copacabana beach in 2016. Let Carnival begin. On a chilly Danish evening of high drama, the IOC on Friday sent the games of the 31st Olympiad to Brazil’s bustling, fun-loving but crime-ridden city

of beaches and mountains, romance and slums. The IOC closed its eyes to the risks — the huge projected costs of the Rio Games, the concerns about how athletes will get around and where people will sleep — to focus on the reward of lighting the Olympic cauldron in one of the last corners of the globe yet to be bathed by its light. “It is Brazil’s time,” said the country’s charismatic president, Luiz Inacio Lula da Silva. Chicago was knocked out in the first round — in one of the most shocking defeats ever handed down by the committee of former Olympians, sports administrators, royals and other VIPs. While blues legend Buddy Guy twanged “Sweet Home Chicago” in a promotional video the city played to the

IOC, bad blood between the committee and its U.S. branch — they’ve had flareups over revenue sharing and lucrative broadcasting rights — proved to be a note of discord. IOC members said the slap to Chicago was more directed at the U.S. Olympic Committee than to the Windy City itself. The win was decisive: Rio beat Madrid by 66 votes to 32. Chicago got just 18 votes in the first round, with Tokyo squeezing into the second round with 22. Madrid was leading after the first round with 28 votes, while Rio had 26. In the second round, Tokyo was eliminated with just 20 votes. Madrid got 29, qualifying it for the final round face-off with Rio, which by then already had a strong lead with 46 votes.

A Barack Obama impersonator poses next to a cardboard cutout image of Michelle Obama as Rio residents celebrate the nomination to host the 2016 Olympic Games at the Copacabana beach, in Rio de Janeiro, Friday. The indignity suffered by Chicago — long considered a front-runner — was such that some IOC members squirmed. Obama flew overnight from Washington to sell his adoptive hometown and its plans for Olympic competition on Lake Michigan’s windy shores to the IOC.

First lady Michelle Obama, with talk show host Oprah Winfrey and sports stars in tow, jetted in first and spent two days buttering up IOC members, an essential part of the secretive and unpredictable selection process. IOC members seemed wowed, posing for photos with her and taking souve-

nir shots of the president with their cell phones. But, in the vote, Chicago was shunned. Obama called Silva to congratulate him, but the nature of the loss still rang as a stinging anti-American rebuke. Close to half of the IOC’s 106 members are Europeans.

Stocks fall following jobs report NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Stocks posted modest losses Friday after a disappointing monthly jobs report brought fresh concerns that a recovery in the troubled labor market may be a long way off. The Dow Jones industrial average fell for a fourth straight day, losing 22 points a day after tumbling 203 points following weak reports on manufacturing and weekly claims for jobless benefits. The latest poor report came from the Labor Department, which said employers cut 263,000 jobs last month. That was more than the 201,000 cut in August and worse than the 180,000 economists were expecting. The unemployment rate rose to 9.8 per-

cent, in line with forecasts. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been a lot of talk particularly in the last couple of months that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing a turnaround in unemployment, and obviously thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not the case,â&#x20AC;? said Dan Cook, senior market analyst at IG Markets in Chicago. Meanwhile, a surprise drop in factory orders extended the recent string of disappointing economic readings. The Commerce Department said factory orders fell 0.8 percent in August following a 1.4 percent gain in July. Analysts had been expecting a 0.7 percent increase. The marketâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s optimism has been tested this week by a number of economic indicators that have either weakened or fallen short

of expectations, a disappointment after several months of hopeful signs on key industries like housing and manufacturing. That has led investors to question whether the 50 percent surge in stocks over the past six months can be sustained. With nerves running high, stocks have fallen in seven of the last eight days. The Dow Jones industrials have pulled back about 4.3 percent since coming within 82 points of the 10,000 level last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have had a long, hard week,â&#x20AC;? said Bruce Shalett, managing partner at Wynston Hill Capital in New York. Many found the relatively calm response to the jobs report encouraging, taking

it as a sign that there are still investors willing to use the dips to pick up stocks they consider cheap. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pullbacks are going to constantly be used as opportunities to get into the market,â&#x20AC;? said Hank Smith, chief investment officer of equity at Haverford Investments in Radnor, Pa. According to preliminary calculations, the Dow fell 21.61, or 0.2 percent, to 9,487.67, after falling as much as 79 points. The Standard & Poorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 500 index fell 4.64, or 0.5 percent, to 1,025.21, and the Nasdaq composite index fell 9.37, or 0.5 percent, to 2,048.11. For the week, the Dow and the S&P 500 index each lost 1.8 percent, while the Nasdaq fell 2 percent.

Computer glitch gives customers headaches CHERRY HILL, N.J. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Computer problems have been causing headaches this week for customers of the financial institution that calls itself â&#x20AC;&#x153;Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Most Convenient Bank.â&#x20AC;? TD Bank officials say there have been delays in getting transactions to show up in the customersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; accounts. They say the problems sprung from complications integrating the computer systems and Web sites last weekend of the old TD Banknorth and Commerce Bank.

In the days just a few years ago before online banking was widespread, most customers would not have noticed. But now, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re so aware that theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve overwhelmed the phone lines at the bankâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s call center, filled branch lobbies and have made their gripes public on Twitter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We recognized the frustration level was increasing during the week,â&#x20AC;? said Fred Graziano, an executive vice president who oversees retail banking for TD, who was con-

trite about the problems. The lingering problem was compounded by the timing.

Highlanders struggle, still win big, 42-18 By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer GATLINBURG ­­— The Gatlinburg-Pittman Highlanders got more than they ever imagined from visiting District 3-AA rival Union County Patriots, at least for a half. G-P, the No.7-ranked AAA team in the state according to this week’s AP prep poll, were just a junior Ryan Taylor interception away from leading struggling district rival Union County Patriots (1-5, 0-2) by merely a point or two at the half. But thanks to Taylor’s pick with 11.5 seconds in the second quarter, the Highlanders (6-0, 2-0) managed to hold onto their 21-12 edge. G-P coach Benny Hammonds wasn’t pleased with his team’s uncharacteristic first-half performance Friday night, and a spirited halftime seemed to refocus the Blue and Gold for the second half, leading to a 42-18 Highlander win. Although Hammonds insisted it really didn’t have to do with anything he said during intermission. “It really wasn’t anything I said,” said Hammonds. “We just kindly regrouped and refocused.” Whatever it was, it seemed to work. The Highlanders looked like an intent squad for the first time Friday night, and the G-P defense once again led the way to victory for

G-P senior Elijah Casey (58) hits Union sophomore QB Emmitt Turner (15) forcing an incompletion and a Patriot punt from just outside of the Union goal line. The punt traveled a net four yards, setting up the first G-P score of the third quarter Friday night. the Blue-and-Gold. Pinned at their own 1, the Patriots narrowly avoided a safety on three consecutive plays early in the third quarter, until they were forced to punt from about six inches outside the goal line with their punter in a short drop due to the backline of the end zone.

Fearing a block, the Union punter shanked it directly to the left, striking a light pole, and G-P assumed possession at the Patriot 5 after the four-yard net kick. G-P junior RB Dillon Reagan pounded it in for the score on first down, and the expected rout was final-

ly on with 6:49 in the third quarter. After sophomore kicker Brandon Merritt’s PAT kick, G-P led 28-12. Another strong defensive effort set up the Highlanders in great field position, and Reagan pounded it in again, this time from eight yards out with 4:35 in the third, mak-

ing it 35-12. Moments later, the Highlander offense got in gear with a nice scoring drive ended when junior QB Tye Marshall scrambled right and dropped a beautiful floater on the run to junior WR Ron Durbin, who beat three Union defenders to the back right

corner of the end zone with 21.4 seconds in the third, giving G-P a 42-12 edge after another Merritt kick. Union added a meaningless late score with the subs on the field to make it the final. In a shocker, Union actually led after scoring on a short 14-yard drive on its first possession, set up by a Marshall fumble after suffering a backside hit while attempting a pass. The PAT kick failed, but Union led 6-0. Durbin got the Highlanders back in front for good with 5:50 in the first quarter when he broke a 79-yard punt return down the right sideline, following a wall of Blue-and-Gold blockers. Merritt’s PAT kick made it 7-6. Marshall connected with senior WR Colin Meier on a seven-yard aerial TD with 1:51 in the first, making it 14-6 G-P. Union answered with a 25-yard interception return TD with 11:10 in the half to cut it to 14-12 after a twopoint PAT pass fell incomplete. Sophomore RB Terry Phillips made it the halftime score with 6:11 in the second, pounding it up the gut and through several Union arm tackles for a nine-yard TD. G-P next travels to district rival Fulton next Friday night for its toughest test of the season to date. chitchcock@themountainpress.com

Young Tigers hand tough for a half, fall to Carter 21-0 By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor PIGEON FORGE — Fresh off a confidence-boosting 42-26 win over Grainger last week, the young Pigeon Forge Tigers (2-4, 0-3), led by a slew of underclassmen, looked ready to take on the world during the first half of Friday night’s game against the bigger, more experienced Carter Hornets (4-3, 2-1). Unfortunately for Pigeon Forge, the steam wore out in the second half, and Carter rode its backfield to a 21-0 win. “We came out the first half and executed our game plan well,” coach Lee Hammonds said following the game. “We worked extremely hard this week on defense, and I think that showed up.” Time and again the fledging Forge defense held the Carter offense, and, in the meantime, the Tiger offense was moving the ball, making progress on the ground and with the play-action pass. “I think our kids hung in there the first half, and we had some opportunities. We were knocking on the door, and we just didn’t get it in the end zone,” Hammonds said.

gaining possession in the shadow of their own goal post. A Chris Ellison interception and another long run for Travis got the team into Carter territory again before the half, but time ran out on the drive. In the second half the punishing running of Carter QB Dwayne Troutman and Shannon Meady, combined with short rest on the sidelines thanks to a stepped up effort from the Hornet defense, seemed to wear down the Tiger defenders. Troutman scored Carter’s first TD on the opening drive of the third quarter, capping a 8-play, 53-yard drive. Meady got into the end zone on a six-yard sweep on the Hornets’ next possession, moving the score to 14-0. Running back Tim Hayes punched in Carter’s last score in the final minutes of play, making Jason Davis/The Mountain Press the score 21-0 after the PAT. Chase Travis finished the game PF junior defender Coty Young (81) tackles Carter’s Dwayne Troutman in the backfield with 129 yards, which pushed him for a loss in first half action.

Lady Highlanders, Pigeon Forge soccer get quality wins By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor Two local soccer programs picked up some big wins during the past week. The Gatlinburg-Pittman Lady Highlanders won two in a row with victories over Alcoa and Berean Christian, while Pigeon Forge handled Heritage Thursday night. Coach Dean Hogan’s G-P squad started their two-game run with a 2-1 win over a tough Alcoa team on Tuesday in the

Senior Chloe Donley netted a pair of scores, while Schofield added two PF’s Cheyenne Montgomery assists. Also scoring goals for the Lady Highlanders Tornados own back yard. were Hansen and freshSophomore Ariana man Kasey Sumeriski. Hansen scored a big goal Karsen Sims, another

About 15 miles away, the coach Billy Mosely-led Pigeon Forge Lady Tigers were toppling Heritage 4-1 on their home field. The team ran out to a 2-0 halftime lead thanks to two goals from senior G-P’s Chloe Donley Cheyenne Montgomery.

Joy Lyon led the Lady Lions with 17 points and three aces, Brooke Greene added 12 points and Madison McDaniel had three kills in the win. Kayla Brooks led TSD with 10 points in the losing effort, and teammate Brenda Carico added eight points. The Lady Lions next play Tuesday at Berean Christian.

Seymour volleyball SEYMOUR â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Seymour Lady Eagles (9-14, 5-7) volleyball team start-

ed out as a gracious host to visiting South-Doyle on Thursday evening by getting off to a sluggish start, allowing the Lady Cherokees to take the first set of the match 25-21. But in the end it was Seymour that came out on top of the District 2-AAA rivals, taking the match in four games with the final three going the Lady Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; way 29-27, 25-21, 25-16. The second set was a back-and-forth struggle with Seymour finally coming out on top. South-Doyle jumped out to a 13-3 lead in the third set, before some divine intervention led the Lady Eagles to a great comeback. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At that particular juncture (down by 10 points), I felt we needed a time-out/ prayer meeting,â&#x20AC;? said coach

Ed Irvin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was tired of watching us self-destruct and needed to express to our players my feelings concerning the situation.â&#x20AC;? The â&#x20AC;&#x153;prayer meetingâ&#x20AC;? produced more spirited play from the Lady Eagles, and they clawed back for a fourpoint win. The fourth and final set was no contest as Seymour had apparently broken the will of South-Doyle, jumping out to a 11-3 lead en route to a comfortable nine-point win. Nicole Warner led the Lady Eagles with 18 points and nine digs. JoJo Godsey had 13 digs and seven points. Andrea Markowitz had 96 sets, 19 assists and 13 points in the win. Earlier in the week the Lady Eagles faced the Jefferson

County Lady Patriots for a district disappointment for the second time this season, falling in four games 24-26, 25-19, 20-25, 22-25. The result was a carbon copy of their first meeting earlier this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One difference between the two matches, though, was that we kept these games closer,â&#x20AC;? said Irvin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our bad spurts still outnumbered our good spurts, and as long as that continues we will have a hard time winning matches.â&#x20AC;? Warner led Seymour with 22 digs and 15 points. Hannah Moore added 12 spikes and six kills, and Madison Coker had 14 blocks. Last Thursday the Lady Eagles volleyball team bus broke down on the way to

Cherokee, and after the team arrived at the gym one carload at a time, the team began their play as if they were not functioning on all cylinders. But Seymour showed some character by rallying back for a five-game match win 18-25, 25-20, 25-22, 21-25, 15-12. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It got ugly early,â&#x20AC;? said Irvin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got behind 4-7 quickly and then we continued to deteriorate and fell back 11-17, finally losing 18-25 in the first set. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were playing like we were still on the bus, not in a gym for a match.â&#x20AC;? The Lady Chiefs continued to ride their momentum, jumping out to an 11-5 lead in the second set. But the Lady Eagles had had enough and came storming

back to knot it at 13s. Seymour kept the momentum, setting the pace in the third set to lead 13-7 and holding on for a secondstraight game win. The fourth set went to Cherokee 25-21, with the Lady Eagles dropping behind early and unable to overcome the deficit, but once again, Seymour responded with a fifth-set victory behind clutch serving from freshmen Sarah Stoffle and Kasey Norman. Markowitz led the winning effort with 58 sets, 18 assists and 11 points. Kasey Norman had 27 spikes, 17 points, 15 digs, 13 kills and seven aces in the win.

Auburn, Tennessee teams look for proof of progress By BETH RUCKER Associated Press Writer KNOXVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The Auburn Tigers have conquered a few obstacles already this season. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve won four straight under a new coaching staff, embraced a revamped spread offense and won their first Southeastern Conference game. Now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to see how the Tigers (4-0, 1-0 SEC) handle their first road test and major venue when they travel to Tennessee (2-2, 0-1) on Saturday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you play well and win the game, then I think it definitely catapults you over another hurdle,â&#x20AC;? Auburn coach Gene Chizik said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you can go to a place like Tennessee and get a win, then it reveals more about your team and helps us into the month of October in a very good way.â&#x20AC;? Tennessee is looking to clear its own hurdle of grabbing its first conference win and surviving a month that includes games against No. 18 Georgia, No. 3 Alabama and South Carolina. Coach Lane Kiffin knows a win wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t come easy over Auburn, which is averaging 45 points and 526 yards per game and has the Football Bowl Subdivisionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s thirdranked offense. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You know looking at the rankings this week, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m very surprised that this opponentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not in the

Tennessee running back Montario Hardesty is rushing for an SEC-best 121.2 yards per game this season. Top 25,â&#x20AC;? Kiffin said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Two weeks ago at the time we played the most explosive offense in college football (in Florida), and here we go again with one of the top three.â&#x20AC;? When the Tigers beat the Vols 14-12 a year ago, both teams struggled. Auburn gained 226 yards to Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 191, and Jake Ricks scored the winning touchdown by merely falling on a ball fumbled in the end zone on a handoff between Jonathan Crompton and Arian Foster. Things never got better for either team. Both finished the season 5-7 and fired longtime coaches Phillip Fulmer and Tommy Tuberville and a

host of assistants. After Tubervilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s experiment with the spread offense under coordinator Tony Franklin, Auburn is faring much better under Gus Malzahn. Chris Todd, who could only manage 93 yards passing against Tennessee last season, is averaging 253 yards passing per game this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really working well for them this year,â&#x20AC;? Vols defensive tackle Wes Brown said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The new coaching staff has come in and really given them some confidence, and their quarterbackâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s really whipping it around. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re running the ball well, and their offensive line is blocking well.â&#x20AC;? The Vols are looking for

When the two teams take the field at Neyland Stadium, there will be plenty of familiar faces. Chizik and Kiffin faced each other in the 200506 national championship game at the Rose Bowl as Texas defensive coordinator and Southern California offensive coordinator. Chizikâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Longhorns won the 41-38 shootout. Tennessee running backs and special teams coach Eddie Gran was hired by Kiffin after 10 seasons at Auburn under Tuberville.

Taylor has long been known for his excitement on the sideline, and Saturday will be no different. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s at the level where you just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t crank it up anymore,â&#x20AC;?

Seek out support groups for free help with depression

Zits

Dear Annie: I am a 50-year-old woman who has struggled with depression for nearly 30 years. I’ve almost destroyed my career because I lack the motivation to seek out new tasks. I have spent many years as a virtual prisoner in my home because I see no reason to go out. I’ve become estranged from family and old friends. Those few people who are still around often worry because I am so pessimistic and angry. I can’t say I’ve tried every method imaginable to dig myself out of depression, but I have been in therapy three times and on prescription antidepressants without any noticeable success. I cannot seem to lift my mood for more than a couple of weeks at a time. Many days I resolve to keep a positive attitude, but it rarely lasts past midday. I have heard of those who successfully cured their depression, so I know it can be accomplished, but it’s beyond my reach. I do not have a primary care physician. I cannot afford the time or money to see a therapist regularly. My income is too high to qualify for any free or income-based programs. In-patient rehab is completely out of the question. With the current rise in unemployment and greater numbers of people without health care coverage, what does someone like me do? — Depressed and Overwhelmed Dear Depressed: The fact that you are writing us indicates you have not given up, and this is a good sign. Medication often is a trial-and-error process

to find the best individual treatment. There are self-help groups that can offer emotional support, as well as information and resources, and they are free. Here are three to get you started: the National Alliance on Mental Illness (nami. org) at 1-800-950-NAMI (1-800-950-6264); the Depression and Bipolar Support Alliance (dbsalliance.org) at 1-800826-3632; and Recovery International (recoveryinc.org) at 1-866-2210302. Dear Annie: In the past few years, I have observed three different families learn the hard, sad truth about three different upscale retirement communities that promised “continuing care” for residents. I say “caveat emptor.” In all three cases, everything was great: designer facilities, lovely food in lush dining rooms, fabulous activities and fine attention to the residents’ needs. However, in all three cases, the family member became ill and was hospitalized and then released to the skilled nursing facility of their retirement home. Each family immediately learned that the facility didn’t offer “that degree” of skilled nursing and they would have to find another place. Of course, the information was in the fine print of the contract but glossed over by eager marketing direc-

tors. Annie, please urge potential residents and families to ask hard questions about exactly what is included and have an attorney review the contract. If told a nursing facility covers “everything,” insist that statement be in there. — Lafayette, Ind. Dear Lafayette: Some facilities do indeed cover every type of care, but all contracts should be read closely and scrutinized by an attorney. Thanks for warning our readers to pay close attention when they are looking at retirement communities. Dear Annie: Your response to “Pregnant and Confused,” the married woman who slept with “Pete” and is now pregnant with twins, was good, but didn’t go far enough. She absolutely has to tell her husband so he can decide whether he wants to stay married and keep those twins if they are not his. And if he does, he should go after Pete for child support. Pete needs to learn not to fish in another man’s pond and is responsible for any damage he causes. And I’d dump that untrustworthy wife. —Bob in Virginia Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
