Traffic light on city agenda


By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer

5Heartbreaker for the Vols Penalty keeps UT from upset win over LSU Sports, Page A8

SEVIERVILLE — The muchdiscussed plan for a traffic light at the Food City on Dolly Parton Parkway is on the agenda again for the Board of Mayor and Aldermen’s regular meeting Monday. Food City has requested the new signal to alleviate traffic jams at the shopping center where it’s located. The company has dis-

cussed the proposal with the city before, and has taken it before the Tennessee Department of Transportation. Monday, the board will review the plans for the new signal at the request of TDOT, as well as consider paying $50,000 toward the project to see to it that the light is synchronized with other traffic lights on the road. The board’s regular meetings are held at 7 p.m. in the Civic Center.

The board will also consider a request to refinance loans to Sevier County Electric System, which is actually owned by the city. SCES is asking the city to refinance two loans totaling $22.2 million, using a variable rate loan secured by a letter of credit in lieu of auction rate bonds secured by insurance that has been downgraded. Also Monday, the board will consider: n Final reading of rezoning property near Mount Road and

Winfield Dunn Parkway from low density residential to intermediate commercial use n Final reading of abandonment of a right of way on Middle Creek Road n Second reading of rezoning of property on Mechanics Way from arterial commercial to low density residential use n Closure of city facilities for the start of Winterfest n

By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer As they mark 90 years of serving youngsters in need, the folks at Smoky Mountain Children’s Home are rededicating themselves to “giving children a chance.” The organization has seen many changes in its nearly a century of work, from its start as an orphanage in southeastern Tennessee to its current unofficial name change, adopting the more colloquial title of “The Home.” Through it all, though, the mission has remained the same. “The Smoky Mountain Children’s Home provides hope and healing for abused, neglected and abandoned children,” Public Relations Coordinator Beth Nuckles Durham says. “We strive to give each child on our campus a chance for a real home, a parent’s love, warm meals, a safe place to live, and all of the opportunities necessary for growth and success.” According to the official history kept by See Home, Page A3

House parents giving children a chance By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer It takes a special kind of person with a special kind of purpose to do what Mike and Cindy Morris have done for the last two years. “It definitely has to be a calling,” Mike says. “You weed out the ones who maybe just want to work with kids or, let’s face it, just want a job really quickly from the ones who have a calling. They don’t stay long.” It was definitely a calling that brought the pair to Smoky Mountain Children’s Home to serve as house parents. They say they could sense, after a number of job changes for both of them over the years, that their lives were about to change. They just weren’t sure how. “One day in church — we worked as youth pastors — I just felt a leading to inquire about this,” Mike says of working at the home. “I went online and found an opening for house parents. We applied and

The Home, that mission started in 1920, when four young children were given a home with Lillian Kinsey in Cleveland, Tenn. The small frame house eventually became known as Orphanage Number One as the Church of God in the state created its ministry to homeless children. Two more homes were added before a large facility capable of housing several hundred children was built on land south of Cleveland. That site became known as the Church of God Orphanage, with its mission to provide shelter mostly for homeless and orphaned children. The Home’s history lists “poverty, illness and death of one or both parents� as the “primary reasons children needed care.� As the years passed, that focus started to shift away from mainly those youngsters whose caretakers had died to many whose homes weren’t a safe place to be. The facility started taking in what were then called “orphans of the living,� those children who were victims of neglect and abuse at home. As the number of youth served by the organization continued to grow into the middle of the century, officials started looking for a new place to locate the orphanage. With the Church of God Bible Training School recently closing its doors in Sevierville, it was decided that the sprawling campus on the banks of the Little Pigeon River would be a great new site for the operation. When that facility opened to the children in 1949, the focus was still very much on dormitory style care, but, just as the type of youngsters being served had shifted over the years, so too had the idea of how they should be treated evolved. Like institutions in its line of work across the country, the orphanage began to switch to focus more on foster family care and residential treatment centers. To go along with the transition, the name of the facility was officially changed in 1962


fritters and kettle corn; honey making, bee keeping, basket weaving, sheep shearing and spinning wool; antique tractors and engines on display; mule wagon rides and pony rides; and old-fashioned kids’ games. Mollie Zigelnik, Tennessee State Bank director of public relations, said plenty of people always arrive early to snag a straw cowboy/cow-


The orphanage grew over the years to accept more children in need of a home. Beginning in one small frame house, two more houses were added before a larger facility was built in Cleveland on 119 acres to house several hundred children. to Church of God Home for Children. The same year, social work and counseling services were added to more effectively address the needs of the children served at the home. Shortly thereafter, cottage-type homes for the children began to spring up on land surrounding the old dormitories like so many mushrooms. In that setting, officials with the Church of God believed, the children could be better served, particularly those who needed, because of neglect or abuse, more personal attention. “The next couple of decades saw even more changes with emphasis on specialized care for abused and emotionally disturbed children,� the history on the organization’s Web site reads. “Intensive training for the primary care givers was begun to better prepare them for the needs of children coming into care.� Program Director John Sweet remembers some of those intense changes, particularly those of the last few decades. “Things really began to change in the 1980s and 90s,� Sweet says. “That’s when things changed because we were seeing more violence against children and even seeing more children perpetrate violence against other children.� Today, The Home relies on an army of house mothers and fathers, who

literally live with the children in the cottages, helping provide not just for their physical needs but also caring for them emotionally. At-risk children and teens are cared for through the Residential Care and Foster Care programs, and the center offers family counseling, individual therapy, educational opportunities and structured group living. In a conclusion filled with hope, the history states that The Home exists now for, “Creating a safe and supportive environment for each resident to discover their talents and build on their strengths, and through the care of a trained staff each resident has the opportunity to overcome the circumstances of their past while exploring a world of opportunity for

their future.� As they work to ensure that mission will be continued into the future, supporters of The Home are planning a considerable fundraising effort, including a banquet on December 9, just eight days before the official 90th anniversary. They’ve also expressed dedication to the slogan they’ve adopted for the celebration year, “Give a child a chance.� “We really believe in giving the children we serve a chance,� Durham says. “Some of our children come in and they’ve never slept in a bed. They just think it’s so great.� As an illustration, Durham recalls an experience she had at this year’s Patriot Festival in Pigeon Forge. She went to the event hoping to

girl hat the bank provides each year. “All we have left is kids’ hats,� she said at around 11:30 a.m. Saturday. Kids’ activities include a Kids’ Workshop, sponsored by The Home Depot, and art classes. “We’ve been pretty full all morning,� said volunteer Nikki Hurst, who greeted budding artists. “This is the first year I’ve volunteered — my daughter is on the Sevierville Teen Board and volunteers, so I decided to join her. We go to church with

the Tinos, and we’ve been coming to the festival for years. It’s just really neat; you get to see everyone you know, and they offer so much here for everybody.� Entry to the homecoming is free, although donations and small fees are required for some of the activities to benefit the Boys and Girls Club of the Smoky Mountains and East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. Kim Loveday, director of the Sevier County Family Resource Center,

usually attends the festivities after church on Sunday, but decided to go a day early because of the beautiful weather. “We graduated high school together — he worked on our yearbook our senior year,� Loveday said of Tino. “He always gives back to the community.�

pass information about The Home to members of the band Diamond Rio, who are known for their philanthropy. As she waited to talk to the men, she noticed a little boy watching her carefully, though she didn’t know why until he approached her with a question. “He asked me, ‘Don’t you work at the children’s home,’� Durham recalls. “It turned out he was one of our children who had recently been sent back home. He told me things were really rough at home and he

really wanted to come back. He asked me, ‘Is there any way you could get me back in there?’� The boy is now transitioning back to The Home and Durham says she believes she’s made a difference by taking him out of the abusive situation he was in. “God had different plans for me that night,� she says, pointing out she was just an assistant at The Home at the time. “I was there to meet that child.� n

Loveday: Home ‘literally a lifesaver’ By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer It may have been 47 years ago, but Ronnie Loveday remembers very well the day his parents died. A 14-year-old boy in 1963, he had just returned from a Saturday hunting trip when an aunt came to the house to get him, his older brother and four younger sisters. “She told us there had been an accident,� Loveday recalls. “We found out later the car had gone off an embankment. They said my dad was killed instantly, but my mother was trapped in the car. She survived until about 10:30 that night. She was eight and a half months pregnant, so really there were three of them killed.� The children, ranging in age from 16 to 5, were devastated. Loveday says he felt like a boy lost, wandering in a world that could offer him no home. His chief concern was losing the only “home� he had left — his siblings. “Who in the world would keep six children?� he wondered as the youngsters’ future was debated. “I just knew we were never going to see each other again.� As it turned out the brothers and sisters found a home with their grandmother, though that would only prove temporary. The 75-yearold found she had passed her childrearing days. “She kept us as long as she could, but it was just more than she could handle,� Loveday says. “I ended up going to work with an uncle and aunt. It was a mistake and I should have known better, but you don’t learn something like that until you have the experience.� Loveday had the experience and found himself even more miserable. He was alone and in a situation that seemed to get worse daily. He remembered how a woman from Smoky Mountain Children’s Home had come to talk to him and his sisters, trying to convince them they could have a better life and stay together if they would give the ministry a chance.

friends who were house parents who opened their home to the couple 12 years ago, just after they moved to the area. As it turned out, their new job would put them in the very same cottage again. “I didn’t know what I was getting into,� Mike admits with a chuckle. “I didn’t know how much effect these children would have on me. Just being able to fulfill their needs is really what being Christ-like is all about.� The couple began work at The Home a short time later and soon after that started the first of what’s called “step down cottages,� a transitional place for kids who have moved out of their initial introduction to the ministry. They’ve provided a home, in lower case, to a host of boys since then who were sent to the campus by the state for various reasons. “They’re in situations of abuse or neglect, some of them have gotten into trouble, and some of them just don’t have families,� Mike says. The children have come to the couple from a myriad of troubling situations, almost universally eventually volunteering at least some of the details of their home lives with

“Had the Home not been there, there’s no telling where we would have ended up. When you’re a kid who has lost his parents, it makes a big difference just to be together with your siblings and to have each other. I don’t know how you would make it without that.� — Ronnie Loveday

What he found there was a struc- n

the Morrises. Mike uses the slogan The Home has adopted as the theme for its 90th anniversary celebrations, “Give a child a chance,� as he explains the transformations the couple has seen in the children. “That’s what it boils down to, to give them a chance. If you open that window just a little bit, they’ll amaze you. They’ll open up to you,� he says. “Each one has a story. That’s what’s unique — the story.� Working about 17.5 hours a day for eight days between four day breaks and living in the same house as the boys, the couple has heard some stories that have amazed, angered and saddened them. Children who have been abused, neglected, abandoned have come through their doors. “They feel the need. They’re lost,� Cindy says. “When they say you’re like their mom, it breaks your heart. You know these children need you.� What the children also need, they say, is consistency, structure and love. Sometimes that’s tough love. As they talk, the couple motions around the spotless living room in the cottage they ran together. (Cindy and the couple’s son-in-law have taken over the house parent

duties since Mike was moved up to serve as an overseer for all the house parents, though he still helps out at the cottage.) They point out the home is maintained not by their work, but by the boys. “They all have a chore list,� Cindy says. “Sometimes they don’t want to do their part, but we tell them, ‘We’re putting these things in place because we love you and we want to take care of you.’� The life there isn’t exactly regimented, but it does stick to a firm schedule and there are unbending rules. Children who exhibit unacceptable behaviors, like violence or swearing, are punished. The Morisses say they know they have to ensure the rules are followed, but that can be a tough task when they’re dealing with a child who has come from a situation where they have never had that kind of structure or where the treatment they were given leaves them feeling no choice but to lash out. “It makes it difficult at times when they’re exhibiting behaviors that are not allowed but you

know their stories,� Mike explains. “It can be hard to hold them accountable.� The couple sticks to the structure, though, wellaware that it’s what the kids need, no matter how much they might fight it. “Slowly you can see them breaking. You can see them opening up,� Cindy says. “When they leave here, they’re completely different.� The life, and it is more a life than a job since the couple actually lives in the house, can be a challenge, that’s certain. But for the Morrises and the other house parents, it all comes back to that calling. They believe they’re fulfilling the Biblical command to care for orphans and, hopefully, helping to shape some young lives. “Those rough kids that you see on the street, no matter how hard they look, are broken on the inside,� Mike says. “They’re still kids, but we don’t see them that way because all we can see is the behavior. We just know you have to love them through those behaviors.�

Dems, GOP recalibrate strategy a month to election WASHINGTON (AP) — Democrats have all but written off at least three Senate seats — in North Dakota, Indiana and Arkansas — and at least six House seats in Tennessee, Louisiana, New York and elsewhere as they embark on a final-weeks advertising push to minimize congressional election losses. Emboldened by their prospects, Republicans are throwing $3.4 million into West Virginia in hopes of winning a Senate seat that was long thought out of reach.

West Virginia U.S. Senate Republican candidate John Raese speaks with the media Aug. 28 at the Hotel Morgan in Morgantown, W.Va. to Election Day, both parties are zeroing in on races they have the best chances of winning, recalibrating strategies and shifting

advertising money by the day. The state of play could change repeatedly between now and Nov. 2. Democrats are especially

worried about House districts in the economically troubled Midwest, and their chances of picking up GOP-held Senate seats have dwindled. In the final stretch, the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee has reserved at least $52 million to run TV ads in more than 60 districts, nearly all held by their own party. The National Republican Campaign Committee has set aside $35 million in airtime in 55 races, and officials say more is on the way. The disparity is misleading. Democrats consistently have had a cash advan-

U.S. may tell its citizens to be vigilant WASHINGTON (AP) — The Obama administration is considering telling U.S. citizens to be vigilant as they travel in Europe, updated guidance prompted by fresh al-Qaida threats, American and European officials told The Associated Press on Saturday. Such a move could have negative implications for European tourism if travelers fear there’s a possibility of terror attacks. The State Department may issue a travel alert as early as Sunday advising Americans to stay vigilant as they travel through Europe because of fresh threat information, U.S. officials told the AP. “We are considering issuing an ’alert’ tomorrow,� a senior State Department official said following an inter-agency meeting to assess the threat and discuss the language of the advisory. “The bottom line is travel, but be vigilant.� State Department spokesman P.J. Crowley declined to comment on the matter. But he said the administration remains focused on al-Qaida threats to U.S. interests and will take appropriate steps to protect Americans. A European official briefed on the talks said the language in the U.S. alert is expected to be vague. It won’t address a specific country or specific landmarks, the official said. European and U.S. officials have not identified any specific targets that terrorists might be considering, the official said. Officials have called the threat credible but not specific. Officials have been concerned that terrorists may be plotting attacks in Europe with assault weapons on public places, similar to the deadly 2008 shooting spree in Mumbai, India. On Friday, Sweden announced it has raised its threat alert to the highest level ever because of an increased threat of terror attacks. But Swedish security officials said there did not appear to be an immediate threat, nor did they cite any possible targets. The U.S. has told European leaders that the State Department alert would be intended to raise the guidance to match the information about the would-be attack that surfaced last week, the European official said.

House races are competitive, mostly for seats now held by Democrats. Republicans need to win 40 to take control. Of the 37 Senate races, about a dozen are close. The magic number for the GOP is 10. No one doubts that Democrats will lose seats in both chambers. The question is how many. “The political environment is positive for us. I think our candidates are strong. And really it’s going to be a resource issue now on how we can maximize the use of limited resources,� said Sen. John Cornyn of Texas, chairman of the Senate GOP’s campaign efforts.

Hot air balloons ascend during the annual Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta in Albuquerque, N.M., on Saturday. About 500 balloons were registered for the annual event.

Missing pilots cast pall over balloon fiesta in U.S. ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — Hundreds of balloonists in New Mexico lifted off Saturday at dawn amid a somber mood, opening the Albuquerque International Balloon Fiesta while search crews on the other side of the globe scoured the seas for two of the sport’s most acclaimed pilots. Richard Abruzzo of Albuquerque and Carol Rymer Davis of Denver were participating in the 54th Gordon Bennett Gas Balloon Race when contact was lost Wednesday morning over the Adriatic Sea. Scuba divers joined in the search efforts Saturday, but race organizers said the two plunged toward the water at 50 mph (80 kph) and likely didn’t survive. Kevin Knapp, a pilot and deputy director of the America’s Challenge gas balloon race scheduled to begin Tuesday in Albuquerque, acknowledged that the mood is

more serious this year, but he said friends and colleagues of the pair are holding onto any hope. “To survive a descent like that is challenging. I know people who have, I know people who haven’t, but all we know now is that it was a fast descent. We know they’re still missing, we know the search is still on and we all still have hope,� said Knapp, who described the pair as mentors to many in the ballooning community. The Italian Coast Guard said a group of eight divers equipped with underwater cameras searched in the Adriatic on Saturday. But spokesman Lt. Massimo Maccheroni said “hopes of finding them alive after four days at sea are close to zero.� Maccheroni did not say when the search would be called off, but said “we are close to the limit.� The fiesta draws hun-

dreds of pilots from around the world and more than 800,000 spectators each year.

Civil courts lack interpreter funds NASHVILLE (AP) — The legal needs of non-English speakers and other vulnerable populations in Tennessee are vastly underserved, in violation of federal law. The Tennessee Supreme Court’s Access to Justice Commission, which is working to fix inequities in the civil courts, has created a committee tasked with improving the system for people with language barriers and those with disabilities. According to The Tennessean newspaper, a shortage of interpreters in the state and money to pay them is one of the most pronounced problems and one of the hardest to fix.

While no hard data exist, judges, lawyers and advocates know anecdotally there are not nearly enough interpreters to go around for Tennessee’s burgeoning immigrant population. For example, there is only one state-certified Arabic interpreter in Tennessee. The shortage can lead to months long delays for people or force them to participate in legal proceedings they can’t fully understand. The state is particularly short on Korean, Vietnamese, Chinese, Arabic and Somali language interpreters. The state’s inability to adequately serve foreign-language speak-

Langley hopes film festival finds audience Duane Langley’s love of movies goes back a long time, but his passion for them can be traced to just one. “People who know me know I’m not just saying this,” the Gatlinburg resident said. “It sounds cliche, but my all-time favorite film is ‘Citizen Kane.’ I am a huge Orson Welles fan. In fact, people have drawn comparisons to me. They say I bear a resemblance to him. I watch ‘Citizen Kane’ at least once a month. I could watch Orson Welles films all day long.” Langley is hoping his love of movies can translate into a successful film festival he has scheduled this week at Mills Conference Center in Gatlinburg. Mountain Madness Film Festival will feature short movies, documentaries, works of fiction, nature tales — a wide variety of movies made by independent filmmakers. Langley makes films and is a fan of film festivals. He’s been to Cannes, Aspen, Toronto, Sundance and countless others. Film festivals attract movies either due to be released or whose producers are seeking a distribution deal. Those who attend often get to see small movies that are destined for greatness, or filmmakers just getting started. He thinks he has a lineup for Mountain Madness that will rival even those better known festivals. The list includes “Miracle Fish,” an Academy Award-nominated short film (short films are generally 40 minutes or less in length); “Ari Gold’s Adventures of Power,” starring Michael McKean, Adrian Grenier (“Entourage”) and Jane Lynch (“Glee”); and “Dear Zachary,” a documentary by director Kurt Kuenne about the murder of his friend Andrew Bagley. This is the first Mountain Madness, and Langley really wants it to be successful. To that end you can see any and all films for whatever you want to pay; there is no set ticket or admission price. All proceeds will go to food banks in New Orleans and Knoxville. Langley moved to Gatlinburg about two and a half years ago to be with his girlfriend, Kimberly Bylo, whose family also lives here. Bylo opened Love Life Live Life, a shop in The Glades. Langley saw a chance to create something new for his adopted city and decided to start the film festival. He’s a filmmaker as well. “Six Tulips,” a short film he made, will be among the movies screened at the festival. So how can a film festival in tiny Gatlinburg hope to compete for product and audience with the better known festivals in Cannes and Sundance? “We actually have a better chance of attracting an audience in October in Gatlinburg than in most large cities,” he said, referring to the increase in tourists enjoying leaf season. Langley admitted he thought he’d have trouble getting filmmakers to show their works at his fledgling festival, but turns out he got good response when he put the word out. He has contracts in the film industry, and when he told filmmakers there would be no entry fee, that got him a good selection of movies. “I believe it’s one of the best lineups I’ve ever seen,” he said. “We have local filmmakers, national filmmakers, foreign films, Native American films. It’s quite a spectrum.” Langley urges people to see as many films as they can and attend the Saturday morning satellite discussion of movie making by some of the people whose works are entered as well as Saturday afternoon live panel discussions. Don’t think of the movies at film festivals as just artsy, difficult to understand works, he says. “You always remember every film you ever liked or ever saw, whether it’s on TV or in theaters. All of them began at film festivals, whether they needed a film festival to succeed or not. It doesn’t just mean artsy films.” Langley is financing this first one out of his own pocket, but he hopes future Mountain Madness festivals will be selfsustaining. He would like to attract sponsors and eventually charge for entries and viewings. But for now, he just wants people to show up and see the films. The festival starts Thursday night and continues through Sunday. To see a schedule and find out more, visit www. — Stan Voit is editor of The Mountain Press. His column appears each Sunday.

Pills-bury Drug Take-back Day a success, if only to educate the public So what do you do with prescription drugs you no longer need? You can throw them in the garbage. Many people flushed them down the toilet. That’s a bad idea. Flushed medications can get into our lakes, rivers and streams. Research cited by government environmental groups has shown that continuous exposure to low levels of medications has altered fish and aquatic organisms. Drugs enter our wastewater from a variety of sources, including flushing them down the toilets of our homes. A nationwide study done in 1999 and 2000 by the United States Geological Survey found low levels of drugs such as antibiotics, hormones, contraceptives and steroids in 80 percent of the rivers and streams tested. A number of studies have shown an impact on aquatic life. For example, male fish have produced eggs when exposed to birth control pills. Other drugs, such as anti-depressants and beta-blockers, reduce fertility or affect spawning.

Those are the dangers of tossing your unwanted or outdated pills in to the sewer system. A water treatment plan can only do so much. Besides, the drugs can seep into groundwater and even water wells used by homes. The Sevierville and Pigeon Forge police departments recently participated in a national Prescription Drug Take-Back Day, coordinated by the U.S. Drug Enforcement Administration. Under the program drop-off points were established in communities all across the country. People could bring their prescription drugs by and turn them in for disposal — no questions asked. It was a success. In Pigeon Forge people dropped off their drugs at Walgreens. In Sevierville they could take them to the police station. Sevierville police reported receiving five pounds of pills and medicines for disposal. Pigeon Forge reported a successful day as well. Of course there is a lot more product that could and should have been

turned in for disposal. The Drug TakeBack Day served not just as a way to dispose of unwanted and outdated prescriptions, but also a chance to educate the public about the dangers of flushing them down the toilet. If you can’t wait for another special day, then throw the drugs in the garbage, but do it carefully. Here are some guidelines: n To avoid accidental or intentional misuse of drugs, treat medications (liquids and pills) by adding water and then salt, ashes, dirt, cat litter, coffee grounds, or another undesirable substance. n Hide all medications in an outer container, such as sealable bag, box or plastic tub, to prevent discovery and removal from the trash. Seal the container with strong tape. n Dispose of drugs as close to your trash collection day as possible to avoid misuse and/or misdirection. n Do not conceal discarded drugs in food to prevent consumption by scavenging humans, pets or wildlife.

Political view

Public forum Republicans quick to criticize, but offer few genuine solutions

Editor: On Thursday, Sept. 23, more of the Affordable Health Care for America Act provisions took effect and became law. This is the Patient’s Bill of Rights and includes: children with pre-existing conditions cannot be denied coverage; insurance companies can no longer put a lifetime limit on coverage; young adults can stay on their parent’s policy until age 26; if you join or purchase a new plan, insurance companies will have to provide preventive care procedures without any out of pocket costs; freedom to choose your own doctor in insurer’s network and insurance companies cannot charge you more for out of network emergency services. Those adults with preexisting conditions that were uninsurable

can now be insured through the Pre-existing Condition Insurance Plan. The sky hasn’t fallen nor death panels convened. Real people are being helped and faces are appearing with stories of how these changes have impacted their situation in a positive way. The face comparing those with pre-existing conditions to a fire damaged house or wrecked car insinuating that none should be entitled to insurance coverage is Mike Huckabee. Mr. Huckabee made these comments at the Values Voter Summit in Washington on Sept. 17. On Sept. 23, outside of a small business in a suburb of Washington, “A Pledge to America” plan was announced by Republicans. Once again, repeal of healthcare reform tops the list, but it goes on to include: stop out-of-control spending; create jobs and end economic uncertainty; to reform Congress

and restore trust and to keep the nation secure. Hours later. Republicans voted against a bill on the House floor that would provide tax breaks and government backed loans to small businesses. They are unrelenting in their support of continued tax breaks for those with yearly personal income of more than $250,000. A plan to fix the country in 21 pages (27 pages of the 48 are pictures, graphs and cover sheets) — these are elementary school proposals to college level problems. Anger is certainly the theme of this upcoming election. Mine is directed toward those that feel they should be rewarded for obstructionism. They are quick to criticize yet offer only a few political talking points as solutions to problems facing this nation and world. Bill Dayton Sevierville

Emotional roller coaster as Vols win, then lose to LSU “We’re a talented football team not playing very smart right now. I like the outcome. I don’t like the way we got there.”

By BRETT MARTEL AP Sports Writer BATON ROUGE, La. (AP) — No. 12 LSU squandered what looked like its last chance to pull out a victory. A Tennessee mistake on the same frantic sequence gave the Tigers one more shot. The Tigers remained unbeaten with a 16-14 victory on Saturday after a Volunteers penalty for too many players on the field rescued LSU from a botched final play. LSU (5-0, 3-0 SEC) was confused on thirdand-goal from the 1 and allowed the clock to run nearly to zero before a mishandled snap seemingly ended the game and sent Tennessee players streaming onto the field in jubilation. The celebration was cut short when officials ruled the Volunteers (2-3, 0-2) had 13 defensive players on the field when the ball was snapped. Stevan Ridley then bulled into the end zone from a yard out for the wild win. Ridley finished with 123 yards rushing. Jordan Jefferson had an 83-yard TD run on LSU’s first offensive play, but his game went downhill after that. Jefferson came up just short when he kept the ball on the option on second-and-goal from the 1. There were 28 seconds still remaining, but suddenly LSU’s offense appeared to have no idea what to do. With the Tiger Stadium crowd screaming frantically for LSU to run a play, Jefferson hustled to the line of

scrimmage in the shotgun formation. He then mishandled the snap and fell on it as Tennessee players piled on top of him. Several LSU players threw their helmets in disgust and dejected fans started filing out when officials announced that the game was not in fact over. “We’re a talented football team not playing very smart right now,” LSU coach Les Miles said on the field after the game. “I like the outcome. I don’t like the way we got there.” With LSU averaging only 110 yards passing coming in, Miles decided on a two-quarterback system with Jefferson and backup Jarrett Lee getting meaningful snaps. Lee passed for 185 yards and led most of the 16-play, 69-yard game-winning drive, completing critical passes to Terrence Toliver on third-and-13 and fourth-and-14.

Vandy can’t get past Huskies

Ole Miss downs Kentucky By DAVID BRANDT AP Sports Writer OXFORD, Miss. — Quarterback Jeremiah Masoli threw for three touchdowns and rushed for another as Mississippi beat Kentucky 42-35 on Saturday. Masoli, who helped the Rebels take advantage of good field position throughout the game, accounted for his four touchdowns despite otherwise pedestrian stats. He completed 9 of 17 passes for 90 yards and rushed for 43 yards. Ole Miss (3-2, 1-1 Southeastern Conference) has won seven of its past nine games against the Wildcats. Kentucky (3-2, 0-2) hasn’t won in Oxford since 1978 — a streak spanning five games. Kentucky opened the game with an impressive 8-play, 60-yard touchdown drive, capped by a 7-yard touchdown run by Derrick Locke. The Wildcats had little trouble moving the ball all afternoon, outgaining the Rebels 424 yards to 301. But every time they tried to gain further momentum, there would be a crucial error. Ole Miss scored all three of its first-half touchdowns on drives immediately following Kentucky turnovers. The Wildcats turned the ball over on the first play of backto-back drives during the second quarter — once on a Mike Hartline interception and once on a Chris Matthews fumble — See OLE MISS, Page A9

Lady Highlanders show potential at SCHS Invitational soccer tourney Young G-P squad plays well with big schools By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — Coming out of an invitational tournament with a 1-2-1 record would usually not be much call for

celebration. But when you’re a young, relatively inexperienced squad from the smallest school in the group, and you beat the host school — your county’s largest — the positives certainly outweigh the negatives. The Gatlinburg-Pittman Lady Highlanders lost both Saturday games after tying Clinton Friday and toppling

Sevier County High School, but coach Whit Helton isn’t complaining. “I think we did phenomenal,” the first-year head coach said. “This was our sixth game in five days. We had district games Tuesday and Thursday, and then to come out against Clinton yesterday afternoon See G-P Soccer, Page A9

EAST HARTFORD, Conn. (AP) — Jordan Todman ran for 190 yards and two touchdowns to lead Connecticut to a 40-21 win over Vanderbilt on Saturday, just the second win for the Big East over a BCS conference team this season. Todman, who carried the ball 37 times, has now rushed for over 100 yards in seven of his last eight games. The Huskies (3-2) outscored the Commodores 19-0 in the second half, after holding a 21-21 halftime lead. Cornerback Blidi Wreh-Wilson put the game away when he stepped in front of receiver Akeem Dunham, returning the interception 44 yards for a touchdown midway through the fourth quarter to put the Huskies up 38-21. Larry Smith threw for 157 yards and two touchdowns and ran for 64 yards to lead Vanderbilt (1-3). Running back Warren Norman had just 27 yards rushing, but over 162 yards on kick returns. UConn’s Nick Williams took the opening kick of the second half 54 yards, setting up a touchdown pass from quarterback Cody Endres to reserve tight end Corey Manning that gave the Huskies a 28-21 lead. A 25-yard field goal put UConn up by 10 with just under 6 minutes left in the third quarter. Connecticut played for field position the rest of the game, content to run Todman, look for short passes and pin Vanderbilt deep when drives stalled.

Blake Jones closes in on title with win at Lonesome Pine SEVIERVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Blake Jones got one step closer to being able to call himself a track champion this past weekend at Lonesome Pine Raceway in Coeburn, Va., as he once again pulled his Mountain Dew/ Amp No. 80 Chevrolet into victory lane in Late Model Stock competition. With four races remaining in the season at Lonesome Pine and a fairly healthy points lead on his side, Jones knew he could just relax and worry about racing the race instead of racing for points, and that proved to be helpful as he took home another trophy and further padded his current points lead. Jones started the day off in fine fashion by winning the pole and getting out to a very early lead with Brian Blevins and Keith Stiltner not far behind running second and third, respectively. Those two would always be within striking distance of Jones until the caution came out at around the halfway mark. On the restart the cars of Belvins and Stiltner made contact allowing Jones to put some separation between himself and his top competitors. Jones would lead the way for the rest of the race to claim the win in dominant fashion â&#x20AC;&#x201D; flag to flag. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s definitely awesome to be able to run like we have and get these wins,â&#x20AC;?

and tie 0-0, Clintonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great team. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Then last night (against the Bearettes) we were just on, it was one of those magical sporting moments,â&#x20AC;? Helton continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Even though we lost 1-0 to Central (Saturday morning) it feels good,

â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which helped the Rebels turn a 14-7 deficit into a 21-14 lead. Charles Sawyerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interception was the first for Ole Miss this season. The Rebels were one of only three teams in the nation that didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have an interception going into Saturdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s games. Kentuckyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Craig McIntosh kicked a 50-yard field goal just before halftime to pull the Wildcats within 21-17. Ole Miss pulled away in the second half, putting together drives of 75 and 60 yards, respectively, to take a 35-20 lead by the

Jones said post-race. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If we can keep running this way we should be able to take home the championship which would mean a lot to everyone on this team. (I) canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t thank my parents, Wade Day and everyone else on this team enough for what theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done for me and the position theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put me in this season.â&#x20AC;? Lonesome Pine Raceway will not be racing this weekend as the Late Model community makes itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yearly migration over to Martinsville for the Virginia Is For Racing Lovers 300 Late Model Stock event. Jones and his Mountain Dew / Amp number 80 Chevrolet will be back in action on October 9 as he

continues his pursuit of his first ever track championship. Jones and the competitors at Lonesome Pine only have two regular races and a 100-lap special event on October 30 to round out the season. Blake, who drives for his fatherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Teddy Jones Racing team, is supported by Mountain Dew and Amp Energy Drink as well as Bakers Wrecker Service, Breeden Paving, Chambers Market and Grill, PowerMax Transmissions, Colonial Loans and WD Performance.

because they beat us 5-0 early in the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s evidence of how much weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve grown as a team and improved on working together and working as one cohesive unit â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which is how you win soccer games.â&#x20AC;? The Lady Highlanders, obviously worn down, then fell 2-0 to David Crockett to end the Invitation, but Helton still wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deterred.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re the only AA team playing against all AAAs, and we held our own,â&#x20AC;? he said. The team will play against next Thursday at Morristown East and then at home Oct. 14 versus William Blount before moving into the District 3A/AA Tournament later in the month.

end of the third quarter. The Rebels added another touchdown early in the fourth quarter on an 4-yard pass from Masoli to Ferbia Allen for a 42-20 lead. But the Rebels have had trouble holding secondhalf leads this season and Saturday was no different. Kentucky scored 15 unanswered points to pull within 42-35 with 1:34 remaining in the game, but the Wildcatsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; ensuing onside kick bounced off several pairs of hands

before going out of bounds as Ole Miss hung on for its second straight victory. Hartline completed 27 of 46 passes for 300 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. Locke caught eight passes for 108 yards and rushed for 68 yards and two touchdowns. Ole Missâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Brandon Bolden rushed for 108 yards and a touchdown on 23 carries. It was his first 100-yard rushing game against an SEC opponent.

Norwood pleased with 1st SCHS tournament, not pleased with SCHSâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; results JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Coach Bobby Norwood seemed happy with the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first girlsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; invitational soccer tournament Saturday afternoon â&#x20AC;&#x201D; he just wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pleased with how the tournament went for his Bearettes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I thoguht the tournament itself was a success,â&#x20AC;? Norwood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We had eight teams come and all the coaches and everybody gave me good feedback.â&#x20AC;? The team tied David Crockett 2-2 in their 11 a.m. matchup Saturday and then

lost to Knox Central 1-0 in their 4 p.m. tilt to finish the tournament 1-2-1, making the team 3-12-1 overall on the season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve jsut got to keep our head up,â&#x20AC;? the coach said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just not got the results weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve wanted. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having trouble with finishing, and sometimes weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re having issues with effort. Its just been a tough season.â&#x20AC;? But for his team their is a silver lining. The girls are 2-1 in District 2-AAA, with games left to play against Jefferson County, Cocke County and South-Doyle in the coming

weeks. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to be alright,â&#x20AC;? Norwood said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve just got to take care of business.â&#x20AC;? One issue the girls are facing, however, is senior center-mid Idaly Gonzalez recent injury. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s probably torn her ACL and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s huge for us from a leadership standpoint,â&#x20AC;? Norwood said. The Invitationalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final games are slated for tomorrow, though no local teams are participating in the Sunday contests. SCHS next plays next Thursday at Jefferson County.

Highlanders have some work to do before facing Fulton GATLINBURG â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Friday night the GatlinburgPittman Highlanders rolled up more points in the first quarter than the Union County Patriots managed to gain in the entire game as Coach Benny Hammonds notched his fifth win of the season 42-18. While itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s good to have a solid win like this one to build on there is still a lot of room for improvement on this Highlander squad. The team was plagued by mistakes and miscues throughout the game. On the Highlandersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; first play from scrimmage, senior quarterback Tye Marshall connected with Ron Durbin on a 50-yard pass play that set G-P up for 1st-and-goal only to see the play wiped out by an illegal procedure penalty. The very next play, the Highlanders jumped off sides, so instead of first and goal inside the 5-yard line, the Highlanders were faced with 1st-and-20 on their own 44. In the second quarter, the Highlander offense fumbled the ball away once and allowed three sacks, and Marshall was hit with a penalty for intentional grounding. There were several bad

snaps, another fumble lost, and more penalties in the second half, as well as some confusion with personnel as the Highlanders played a play or two with only 10 players on the field. On the positive side, the Highlanders were able to play through their mistakes and come away with a dominant win. The explosive offense picked up over 400 yards, and was able to score almost at will on the Patriots, and the defense kept Union County bottled up for most of the night, allowing only nine first downs. Coach Hammonds was upbeat as he told his boys after the game that while they played well in the first quarter, got sloppy in the second, and gave up too many yards in the second half. He told them that Fulton was a very good team and to be ready to work hard at practice come Monday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Fultonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got a very good team,â&#x20AC;? he said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;but thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s alright. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got to come to our place. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll get everything pieced together and give them our best shot.â&#x20AC;?

The LeConte Breast Center is offering extended hours for Mammography Services, with evening appointments available from 5 p.m. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; 7:30 p.m.

  !" Mammography continues to be the most important tool in the early detection of breast cancer.

Mountain Life ■ The Mountain Press ■ B Section ■ Sunday, October 3, 2010

Joining the Mommy Club I recently became a member of a club that I have long envied, admired and respected — and at the same time, feared. I’m finally a proud new member of the “Mommy Club.” When my husband and I found out we were expecting, we were thrilled, to say the least. We had both always wanted to be called “Mommy” and “Daddy.” Even though we won’t hold our little one in our arms until March, we’re already experiencing the great transition from carefree and confident newlyweds to harried and anxious parents. Women, how wild is it that we are able to carry this little miracle in our bellies for nine months? I don’t know about you, but this has been my life’s greatest achievement. Who cares if I’m never CEO of a Fortune 500 company or finish first place in a marathon? That’s small potatoes to being able to produce a life. I’m walking around feeling like Superwoman these days. Other mothers have been very encouraging, warm and welcoming during my induction. They love to share their words of wisdom on morning sickness, maternity clothes shopping and the best bottles for baby. They recount all of the details of their own labor and delivery, which makes me feel comforted and terrified at the same time. Every move I make is now weighed with extra caution. I’m holding onto the railing when I walk down stairs, I’m driving like an old woman in the slow lane on Chapman Highway. I’m walking a little slower on the treadmill and lifting less weight, careful not to put any extra strain on my body. Once women learn they are becoming mothers, do they live in a constant state of worry for their child the rest of their lives? Does it get easier or harder during the journey — or both? I know I can’t keep Little One in a bubble forever — nor do I want to. But if there was some way, any way I could ensure my child a full and happy life — without him or her ever getting hurt — you’d better believe I would do it. Just go ahead and call me an overprotective mama, but cut me some slack — I’m new at this, after all. I was watching a movie last week that had a scene with an expectant father and a father of three chatting on a playground. As the expectant father pointed out to the other that his child was eating sand, the father of three just replied, “Oh, yeah. You don’t really worry about that stuff once you get to the third one.” I laughed, knowing I’ll be forever grateful to my fellow “Mommy Club” members for the advice they’ll no doubt offer. I’ll be relying on them, my sense of humor and most of all, my faith in God while carrying out my most challenging and rewarding role in life. I’ve heard it’s gonna be one crazy ride. — Ellen Brown is a reporter for The Mountain Press. Call 428-0748, ext. 205 or e-mail to

Harvest time

Dollywood festival reaps rewards for 25 years By GAIL CRUTCHFIELD Community Editor

PIGEON FORGE — Thousands of people filed into Dollywood, anxious to see and hear some of their favorite gospel music artists — and the park’s namesake herself — during the opening day of the month-long celebration of the 100-year-old musical genre. The National Southern Gospel and Harvest Celebration kicked off this week and will last through Oct. 30, with almost 65 different musical acts and more than 35 crafters, all showcasing their God-given talents. “For the last 25 years, I’ve been blessed to have been a part of Dollywood and be the host southern gospel group here at Dollywood,” said Steve French of the park’s own Kingdom Heirs. “It’s a joy and it’s an absolute thrill that the whole month … is Southern Gospel music month here at Dollywood and groups form all around the country are going to be right here at Dollywood.” Charlie Waller, executive director of the Southern Gospel Music Association Hall of Fame, said Southern Gospel music got its start a century ago. “It was on May the 19th, at 11 a.m. in Dixon, Tennessee, 100 years ago, when the Vaughn Quartet sang their first song,” Waller said, before presenting Dolly Parton with an award named for the quartet’s founder and “father of Southern Gospel music,” James D. Vaughn. “It’s honor to be here,” Waller added. “From opening day 25 years ago, Dollywood has had gospel music, so it’s evident that Dollywood loves gospel music.” Parton, whose grandfather was a Pentacostal preacher, said her roots in gospel music run deep and that they always play a role in her writing, no matter what type of song she may be writing. “It’s just all part of me,” she said when asked how she gets in the mindset to write gospel songs as compared to more mainstream music. “I think when you grow up in the church God just lives inside you all the time, so I always ask him to help me write “Romeo” or anything else. I say, ‘Well, let may say something that will be fun and

uplifting and touch people in whatever it is that I’m writing about.’ But there’s always that place in me that is more prominent than anything else and that is that God place. So anytime I plug into that, it just naturally comes.” She said singing gospel is especially meaningful to her. “It just touches a God chord inside of me,” she said. It’s that feeling that she thinks is one of the things that has made Southern Gospel music persevere for so many years. “First of all it’s very high energy for the most part and it really talks about wonderful things and we all feel better about ourselves when we’re really singing and have a good message inside us,” she said. “I know anytime I’m singing gospel music, no matter what else I sing, I get a feeling inside and I just feel like I’m doing something good. I feel like God is closer to me and I just feel better about myself and feel better about other things. It’s just a really wonderful feeling and I think everybody loves getting involved and feeling like we’re raising our voices.” Curt Habraken/The Mountain Press One of those Larry Stock carves out a spoon at his booth in the who has been raisCraftsman’s Valley area of Dollywood.

The Clinton, Tenn.,-based gosep group has been coming to perform at Dollywood for more years than she can remember. “We’re excited to be a part of gospel music and Southern Gospel music,” she said. “I’m proud to go around the world and tell folks that we sing at Dollywood, because they sing gospel music all the month of October.” The McKameys, which Curt Habraken/The Mountain Press includes three Peg McKamey Bean generations will perform with her of her family, family’s gospel group, will perform The McKameys, Saturday and Saturday and Sunday Sunday at at Dollywood.

Bean said she’s been asked before when she’s going to retire, but always answers with a question of her own. “Well why retire?” she said. “People retire to do what they want to do, so I don’t need to retire. I’m doing what I want to do.” That same sentiment was expressed by another artist at Dollywood, but this time See Harvest, Page B5

upl and chronicles

Rindy Bailey known for her rambling By Carroll McMahan On a cold February morning in 1894, Boliver Douglas discovered a dead woman lying in a shed beneath a cluster of white oak trees on the John Underwood farm located in the Kodak community near the road now known as Douglas Dam Road or Highway 139. Boliver Douglas was the son-in-law of John Underwood. The remains were immediately identified as Clarinda Miller Bailey, a homeless woman about 50 years old, who for several years had wandered aimlessly throughout the area north of the French Broad River in Sevier County and several surrounding counties as well. Her tattered clothes were frozen to the ground. At her side, all her possessions were wrapped in a sack and tied to a stick. Sevier County marriage records indicate John Bailey and Clarinda Miller applied for a marriage license on Aug. 18, 1861. However, Justice of the Peace Samuel Mount recorded the wedding date as Aug. 22. Clarinda, known as Rindy, was a daughter of John and Temperance Miller. Little is known about her childhood. The 1870 U.S. Census recorded John Bailey living with two children, Sarah E., age 4 and Lucy, 1. Rindy, however, was not mentioned. Apparently, she had left her family and begun rambling. No one knows for sure why Rindy abandoned her husband and children. Some thought she lost her senses after suffering the loss of a child; others believed the Miller and Bailey families chose opposite sides in the Civil War creating a marital discord. The possibility of domestic abuse has also been queried. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Do you have a nickel or copper for me?â&#x20AC;? was the question Rindy often called out when she stopped in a yard. Covered in layers of clothing, she was known to sleep in barns and stables, in woodsheds, fence corners and straw stacks. Residents in farm communities were suspicious of the vagrant and never invited her to spend the night. Once, a young man named Bruce Underwood was riding through an area called Dug Hollow, near the Sevier-Knox County line, when a storm with heavy rain and lightning caught him. Dug Hollow was said to be haunted due to the shapes of the rocky outcrops and the silhouettes they cast in the dark. He rode fast as possible to nearby Bethel Methodist Church to get out of the downpour. He climbed in through a window and then closed it on the reins of his horse to tether him there. As the lightning lit the inside of the church, an alarmed Bruce observed a scary looking, ragged figure ambling toward him. As she came closer, to his great relief, he recognized Rindy Bailey. The church was probably the most elegant accommodations Rindy ever found to pass an inclement night. Several years hence, Rindy stopped at the home of Bill Hickman and ate what was probably her last hot meal and slept on an unheated porch. The next day, she warmed herself by the stove in Elihue Shepherdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Store at Henryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crossroads. As usual, Elihue gave her a box of snuff as she left. That was the last time Rindy Bailey was seen alive. John Underwood provided the place for her to be buried in the Underwood Cemetery. Enoch Huffaker made her coffin while Jess Romines and another man dug the grave which was marked by a simple field stone. Years later, a well dressed stranger came looking for Rindyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grave. He did not identify himself but said he wanted to purchase a monument to mark her burialplace. Sadly, he could not find the grave because the crude stone was missing and no one could remember the exact location. Much like the circumstances of her life, Rindy Baileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s final resting place remains a mystery. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Carroll McMahan is the special projects facilitator for the Sevierville Chamber of Commerce.

The Firstfruits

Public pulpit

Bible has the road map for living God’s truth By ALTA RAPER As I sit here in my study, it is still dark outside and I can hear the soft patter of rain. It is also my favorite time of day. This is my time to be alone with God, and we connect, collide and commune. I can tell by the way I hurt inside when He is disappointed with me and when He approves my heart begins to sing. I’m not a perfect “child” (none of us are) but He always bestows the perfect blessing at the very moment the last amen escapes my lips. I lean back, relax a bit and think of things of the world and things of heaven and how everything seems to mesh. It’s good to have time alone, time to think, time to wonder, time to love on God and let Him love on me. And time to ponder…. Looking around my study, laughter bubbles up from deep within and I laugh out loud. They say if you laugh at yourself, the world laughs with you, and this morning we can both have a good one. Sitting precariously on the edge of my desk is my new digital camera. I have had it almost a year. Finally took it out of the box a couple of months ago, made a few pictures, put it back on my desk, discouraged because there are just too many things I don’t know about it. The newfangled fax machine the church thought I needed sits to my right. It’s plugged in and I sent a couple of faxes. The recipient said she received four blank pages. I still don’t know what I did to make it work the third time. My children gave me a great laptop a few years ago upon my graduation from five years of the Course of Study. It won’t let me do all the things I can do with my PC ~ the buttons are not in the

same place and the mouse is missing for goodness sake. In the middle of my desk sits a new computer program called “Naturally Speaking.” This is speech recognition software which types while I talk. I sent in the receipt for the $50 rebate, but I’m still not sure when I will load the program. What if I talk too fast or want to change what I said or — well you know. And I laugh even more. Because I know why I’m not proficient using any of these fine electronic devices. I haven’t taken time to read the book. One day soon, I’m going to pick a day and designate it “Read the Book Day.” These are things of the world which remind me of things of heaven. How can we expect to learn about God and secure our place in heaven if we just can’t find the time to read the Book? Many are led to Christ and left standing there without the Book or even knowing how to use it. How many times are we guilty of never opening the Scriptures from one Sunday to the next, and then wonder why we don’t have answers for the difficult situations of life? Perhaps we fail to consult God’s road map for living and strike out on our own taking wrong turns all along the way and having to back up and start over. We have a vague idea of where we want to go but we haven’t a clue how to get there. Folks, we need to read the Book! It has very Good News. — Alta Raper is pastor of Pittman Center Circuit of the United Methodist Church: Burnett Memorial UMC in Pittman Center, Webb’s Creek UMC just off 321 in Gatlinburg, and Shults Grove UMC in Cosby.

But each in his own order: Christ the firstfruits; then they that are Christ’s, at his coming (1 Corinthians 15:23). Despair turned to excitement on that first day of the week so long ago when Jesus arose from the dead (John 20:1-31, etc.). In the midst of all the excitement, however, there was one theological conundrum that needed to be addressed. The idea of resurrection was not foreign to the Jews; the Pharisees believed in the resurrection (Acts 23:8), and no doubt many other Jews did also. But “the resurrection” in which they believed was the resurrection on the last day. That is what Daniel 12:2 seemed to indicate. It certainly was the expectation of Martha when Lazarus died (cf. John 11:24). But someone rising from the dead in the resurrection before the end? This was not something you would automatically take away from a reading of the Old Testament, nor was it something immediately obvious to Pharisees and others. Perhaps this was part of the challenge the disciples faced in not understanding Jesus’ predictions of the event (Mark 9:30-32, etc.). How could it be that One could rise from the dead before everyone was raised from the dead? The Holy Spirit, through Paul, would make this understandable. Jesus was the firstfruits of the resurrection! The idea of the firstfruits comes from passages like Deuteronomy 18:4: The first-fruits of thy grain, of thy new wine, and of thine oil, and the first of the fleece of thy sheep, shalt thou give him. The firstfruits were the first part of a harvest-- the first wheat or barley harvested, the first wine processed, the first of the fleece shorn, and so on and so forth. The Israelites were to devote the firstfruits to God (Exodus 23:19), and God gave them to the Levites for sustenance (Deuteronomy 18:4). After the firstfruits had been offered, the rest of the harvest belonged to the people for their own consumption and use. The firstfruits image, therefore, helps us understand the relationship between Jesus’ resurrection and the resurrection on the final day. Jesus is the firstfruits-- the first to rise from the dead, never to die again (1 Corinthians 15:20). He had been given as an offering to God to atone for the people (2 Corinthians 5:21, Hebrews 9:1-15). He paves the way for the resurrection to come, the resurrection of which we all take part (John 5:28-29, 1 Corinthians 15:12-57)! There is something obvious about the firstfruits that is important for the resurrection. The firstfruits are not different in kind or type from the harvest that comes later. The firstfruits of wheat are wheat just as the “second fruits” or “third fruits” would be; the same goes for barley, wine, fleece, and the like. So it is with the resurrection: we should not believe that our resurrection will be something different from Christ’s resurrection (1 Corinthians 15:23). The difference involves time, not type or kind. As Jesus died in the flesh but remained alive in the spirit (1 Peter 3:18), and was then raised bodily from the dead, the tomb being empty, and His flesh being transformed for immortality (Luke 24:1-49), so it goes with those who serve Him. All who have died, and those who will be dead before His coming, remain alive in the spirit, but will then be raised bodily and transformed for immortality (1 Corinthians 15:35-57, Philippians 1:21-23, 1 Thessalonians 4:13-18)! In reality, the resurrection is a challenging concept, for one of the few “guarantees” in the physical realm is that once one dies, one is always dead. We do not see people rising from the dead, never to die again. Yet that is precisely the hope by which the Christian must live (cf. Romans 8:20-25). And we have confidence in that hope because of Jesus the firstfruits. We do not have to wonder whether God can or will raise the dead, for we know He raised Jesus from the dead. If He is able to raise Jesus from the dead, He is able to raise us from the dead also, and He has promised to do so (Romans 8:11)! The last enemy, indeed, is death (1 Corinthians 15:26). Through Jesus’ life, death, resurrection, and lordship, believers now can have confidence in their spiritual regeneration in this life (Romans 6:1-23, 8:1-9). The believer is able to be a new creature in Christ (2 Corinthians 5:17), yet we are all still cursed with physical death. But death will be abolished. The day will dawn when we all will have the victory over not just sin but also death through Jesus Christ our Lord, and on that day the rest of the harvest will be brought in to the praise and glory of God in Christ (1 Corinthians 15:53-57, 1 Peter 1:67). We can have complete confidence in this because Jesus gained the victory over sin on the cross and over death in the resurrection, and He is the firstfruits! Let us all serve God so that we may attain to the resurrection of life (cf. Philippians 3:11-13)!

Cleo Stock discusses her craft of wool rug hooking with visitors at Dollywood.

Curt Habraken/The Mountain Press

from one of the 37 crafters on the park for this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s celebration. Larry Stock said he thinks of his time at Dollywood as a â&#x20AC;&#x153;paid vacation.â&#x20AC;? Stock and his wife Cleo are side-by-side in separate booths in the Craftsmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Valley area of the park where he carves wooden spoons and dippers while his wife hooks wool rugs. Cleo Stock said she and her husband have made a lot of friends over the years theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been coming to Dollywood, both park visitors and employees. Meeting and visiting with those who pass by their booth is one of the perks of the job, according to Larry Stock. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Half the fun is talking,â&#x20AC;? he said of those who ask questions about his work. Parton, he added, has been one of his best customers, purchasing more than 225 spoons to give as gifts. The Illinois manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uten-

sils arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t your normal wooden stirring spoons. They come in all sizes and some have deep bowls to use for dipping. Others, like the walking plate, are flat with rimmed edges and a long handle. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s even an old-fashioned stirring stick for things like apple butter that looks more like a rudder for a boat than a cooking utensil. While he carves out spoons using his homemade mallet, Cleo Stock pulls strips of wool through a piece of burlap to create a hooked rug. A sunflower design is marked out on the burlap to help guide her in the process. She said it will take her about 300 hours to complete the rug, so sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not sure if sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll complete the rug before the end of the month. By the end of the month, she admits sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s telling herself sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not coming back next year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But by around June Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m already planning on it,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The best people in the world are here.â&#x20AC;?

Track team donation made


The Pigeon Forge High School track team has been given $830 by the Knoxville Track Club, sponsor of of the Midnight Run, an event held recently in the city. The gift represents 10 percent of the proceeds from the run. From left are Leon Downey of the city tourism department; David Morris of the midight run; track students Rebekah Teaster, Briley Shinlever and Honre LeBar; Jimi Rowland, track coach; and Jessica Doppelt. Rowland says the money will be used to purchase new equipment, including starting blocks and a new net for the discus ring.

Scrabble Club members shine in meet Three members of the Smoky Mountain division of the Tennessee Valley Anagrammers Scrabble Club No. 553 traveled to Lexington, Ky. to participate in a local â&#x20AC;&#x153;members onlyâ&#x20AC;? competition, and came home with most of the prize money. Dave Moersdorf finished the tournament in a tie for first place in the upper division, but lost the tiebreaker and settled for second place. Frank Schin, who had finished in second in the previous monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tourney, finished fifth in Lexington. Dick McHugh won his division in a high-scoring playoff that went to the final few words.

The host Bluegrass division graciously invited the visitors back and encouraged them to bring other players in an effort to develop an interstate competition, possibly a monthly home-and-home series. The Tennessee Valley Anagrammers Scrabble Club meets at 6 p.m. Mondays at Books-A-Million in Governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Crossing in Sevierville, and at 6 p.m. Thursdays at Books-A-Million on Kingston Pike in Knoxville.

Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t let anger, hurt take control of your life Every spring I plant baskets of impatiens. They are flowers that grow and bloom in the shade. I spend several days planting these colorful and beautiful flowers. Then I enjoy them all summer from my back porch. They get leafy and hang out of their baskets with pink blooms everywhere. In August they reach their peak, and I cut them down. It is one of the most difficult things for me to do. If I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, they will become leggy and splotchy till frost. If I cut them down they will remain full and green till frost. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve put this off now for two weeks. I just canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t hardly bear to desecrate those baskets of flowers.

What do you need to prune in your life? Is their a bit of jealousy or bitterness that you nurture and pet? How long have you held onto anger over an in justice that happened to you? Did you know that constant anger or bitterness causes stress to reside in you continuously? This stress causes an elevation of blood pressure as well as stomach upset, headaches, and sleeplessness. How you think affects you physically?

Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked with children going through the divorce of their parents that are under a physicianâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s care. They suffer from ulcers, headaches, and even heart arrhythmia. I am amazed at the consequences of worry and strife in people. Letting go of hurts is a very difficult action. People become comfortable in the constant state of stress. Some people get their identity from their hurts. They receive attention from others as they constantly relate their trials to others. The longterm consequence of this is physical and emotional illness. I urge you to prune out the worry and constant strife from your life. Find

someone that you trust and talk it through. Can you change the situation? Can you go back in time and do it differently? No, you cannot. You can create more sorrow for your future by refusing to let it go. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How can I forget what he did to me?â&#x20AC;? Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had clients ask. You have to will yourself to consciously put it aside. I doubt we are able to forget these deep wounds, however, we can actually choose to not ruminate over them. The next time you find yourself brewing and stewing over something that you cannot change, do this: picture a box. Open the box and place the memory inside. Then picture yourself placing

the box on a high shelf or at the feet of God if you are a believer, and then watch yourself walk away from it. I do this activity with children and we use big colored plastic eggs that are called â&#x20AC;&#x153;worry eggs.â&#x20AC;? Each week we examine the worries and realize most of them never happen and also that there are some we cannot do anything about. There have been issues in my life that I literally laid down a dozen times a day. Eventually this practice becomes easier. I have found great freedom in doing this. It is amazing the lightness that comes to my soul as I refuse to carry the hurt any longer. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had some say that

this was an irresponsible behavior. I think not. I believe that it is more damning to constantly obsess over things. Some have said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not fair.â&#x20AC;? Life truly is not fair and there are some things that have no answer. I have grieved as people clench their anger and hurt to their chest. They have no peace and their joy is usually sapped. Choose to let go. Choose to walk away. Choose to not give the anger and hurt control over your life. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rhonda M. Pemberton is a licensed clinical social worker with a masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s from the University of Tennessee. She has a private counseling practice that focuses on families and children/adolescents.

Dunn of Sevierville are eligible to join the rosters of law enforcement agencies with their recent graduation from the latest Basic Law Enforcement Academy class at Walters State Community College.

Grant Fisher accepts the Howard Bruer Award from John Skinner of the University of Tennessee.

G-Pâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Grant Fisher honored Submitted Report For the past eight summers, Grant Fisher, a sophomore at GatlinburgPittman High School, has been completing studies related to insect activity at night and light attraction. His interest has garnered him many awards. Most recently, Fisher was honored by the Tennessee Entomological Society with the Howard Bruer Award. He was recognized at the annual meeting of the Tennessee Entomological Society in Nashville for his work in entomology. Fisher received a plaque from John Skinner from the University of Tennessee

and was recognized at Gatlinburg-Pittmanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Academic Awards Day. In addition, he has been named a finalist in the 2010 Young Naturalist Competition sponsored by the American Museum of Natural History in New York. For this competition, Fisher entered a paper and photographs that detailed his project from last summer which involved counting insects at an ultraviolet light to determine which order of insects is attracted to light in the greatest numbers. Over 900 entries from across the nation were submitted, and Fisher was one of 12 finalists.

He received $50. He credits many individuals with encouraging his interest in insects, including Adriean Mayor, curator of collections for Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and many of his science teachers. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel so fortunate to live near the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and I feel very honored to have my work recognized. I am grateful to the Tennessee Entomological Society, Great Smoky Mountains National Park, and the American Museum of Natural History for all their encouragement and their support of my interest in entomology,â&#x20AC;? he said.

New adventure book for kids takes place in Smoky Mountains


Submitted Report Author Carole Marsh has written book No. 38 in Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Mystery Book Series: â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Mystery in the Smoky Mountains.â&#x20AC;? Geared to boys and girls ages 7-14, the mystery features the Blue Ridge Parkway, Appalachian folklore and Smoky Mountain locales. Marshâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mysteries are popular in schools and libraries because they are on the Accelerated Reader Program, feature SAT words, and have an online book club. Marsh also has written more than 60 non-fiction books for children about North Carolina, Tennessee and surrounding states. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s my passion to prove to any child that they love to read,â&#x20AC;? said Marsh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I get letters and e-mails and even phone calls and visits from parents, teachers and librarians who say kids canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get enough of my mysteries. But who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to read about the Smoky Mountains, one of the most fascinating places on earth, and who wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to have a chance to join Christina and Grant on a future adventure?â&#x20AC;? Marsh and her husband have spent a lot of time in the Smoky Mountains, especially during the fall season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My grandmother was Cherokee, so I grew up listening to her and reading Foxfire books,â&#x20AC;? she said. Her most recent book was â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Mystery at Biltmore House.â&#x20AC;? Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Mystery Book Series can be found in most bookstores, school supply and teacher stores, and national park sites in Tennessee, North Carolina and surrounding states.
