Bolze begins appeals process


Convicted Ponzi schemer faces 327 months in prison By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer

KNOXVILLE — Anyone who thought the saga of convicted Ponzi schemer Dennis Bolze could finally be put to rest with his lateAugust sentencing is in for a rude awakening. Kim Tollison, the public defender appointed to represent Bolze,

has filed notice in U.S. District Court that Bolze is appealing the 327-month prison sentence handed down by Judge Thomas Varlan. Bolze The move means the criminal actions against Bolze will get new

life in the U.S. Court of Appeals for the Sixth Circuit. Since Bolze has already pleaded guilty to the three counts each of wire fraud and money laundering the government brought against him, the appeal is only an effort to have the sentence reduced. The action isn’t exactly unexpected since Tollison hinted it might be coming during the last

When, where to vote

SEVIERVILLE — With Wednesday’s start of early voting, local residents will get their first chance to weigh in on state and national races to be decided during the Nov. 2 general election. The last of 2010’s trio of votes, the balloting is likely to draw considerable interest given a hardfought race for the governor’s seat being vacated by the term-limited Gov. Phil Bredesen. While there are several other contests set to local residents, that’s the one election officials say they’ve heard the most interest in. “It’s always a wait-andsee sort of thing when you’re talking about predicting early voting numbers, but we’ve had a lot of inquiries about when early voting starts,” Election Commission staffer Ed Kuncitis says. “I think the governor’s race is driving people to vote this year, but we just don’t know yet how many of them are going to turn out to vote

Early voting will operate from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays at the Voting Machine Warehouse on Dolly Parton Parkway from Wednesday through Oct. 28. In Seymour, ballots can be cast at the public library on West Macon Lane from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays Oct. 14-16 and 21-23.

early or at all.” That continues a trend that has carried throughout the year. Before the Aug. 5 balloting, Administrator of Elections Ronée Flynn said the primary battle over who would be the Republican nominee for the post was yielding the only calls to the office. Now that Knoxville Mayor Bill Haslam has handily claimed that race, the decision is between him and Democrat Mike McWherter, son of former Gov. Ned McWherter. See voting, Page A4

Downtown improvement plan to be redesigned By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — Plans for improvements to downtown are finally heading back to the drawing board. The Public Building Authority had originally planned to build a new parking garage on Bruce Street property the city had long leased downtown. The PBA purchased the property as well as

some adjacent land, and leveled some stores to add more room, but the plans for a garage were scrapped amid concerns over the cost. The new concept for the parking area calls for additional spaces landscaping and other improvements. It had been sitting idle for some time, but City Administrator Steve Hendrix told the PBA on Monday that he believed it was time to get the

project back on track. “We need to move forward with this project and I wanted to bring it up one more time before we started over,” Hendrix said. The PBA approved his request to send the project back to the firm of Barge, Waggoner, Sumner & Cannon for a redesign. The project should be finished next summer, Hendrix said. Also Monday, Hendrix told the PBA a search committee has

identified a finalist for the vacant marketing coordinator position at the Events Center. The job has been open since Mike Wilds announced his departure early this year. Hendrix said the candidates were reviewed by a committee that included himself, assistant city administrator Tracy Baker, the city’s director of human See improvement, Page A4

Fall fertilizing applications can be appealing to state producers


Doris Mager will conduct a birds of prey program at Sugarlands Visitor Center from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday.

‘Eagle Lady’ will present program Saturday at park Submitted Report Great Smoky Mountains National Park officials invite the public to attend several special fall programs at the Mountain Farm Museum, adjacent to the Oconaluftee Visitor Center near Cherokee, N.C., and the Sugarlands Visitor Center near Gatlinburg. A birds of prey program will be conducted twice by naturalist Doris Mager. The first program will be at the Mountain Farm Museum from 11 a.m.-noon Wednesday. She will do another one at the Sugarlands Visitor

Center from 10:30-11:30 a.m. Saturday. Mager, also known as the “Eagle Lady,” has been working with raptors for more than 35 years. During the two programs, she will have four birds with her, including an American Kestrel, a screech owl and a great horned owl. The public will have an opportunity to get close to these birds. At age 84, Mager still travels the eastern United States giving educational programs. She has cared for over 80 injured eagles and hundreds of other raptors, and has housed up to 36 birds of prey

in her backyard at one time. “An Evening on the Farm” is scheduled at the Mountain Farm Museum on Thursday from 5-6:30 p.m. During the event, Park staff and volunteers will provide a variety of demonstrations, including hearth cooking and broom making. The century-old Davis/ Queen farmhouse will also be open for visitors to walk through for a look at life in the past. During the event, hot cider also will be served. For more information contact the Oconaluftee Visitor Center at (828) 497-1904.

Bible training center offering course on ‘The Book of James’ Submitted Report SEYMOUR — Harrison-Chilhowee Baptist Academy’s Bible Training Center will be offering its second course of the 2010-2011 school year beginning Saturday. Mark Martin, who is the BTC coordinator, will teach “The Book of James.” Martin cites the relevance of this study in the context of what he calls an “epidemic of massive proportions that’s infecting the Christian community. “We constantly hear of people who say they believe one thing but they don’t act in ways that support their belief. Whether it is in politics, a New Year’s resolution, or a simple commitment to God at the end of a worship service, many ‘Christians’ do not seem to take their pledge to follow the Lord seriously. “This is what makes James such an important New Testament epistle,”

Martin said. “It deals with this problem. James helps sort out the disconnect between Christian faith and Christian living.” Classes will meet Saturdays from 8 a.m.-noon, in the Hasson Building at The King’s Academy. The class ends Dec. 11. Tuition is $145 plus books. Admission and financial aid forms for returning and new students will be available the first day of class. The Bible Training Center is a program designed with bivocational ministers in mind. The BTC offers the Diploma in Biblical Studies from the Seminary Extension office of the Southern Baptist Convention in Nashville. Harrison-Chilhowee is the non-profit corporation that operates The King’s Academy. Persons wanting more information on classes, cost or registration may contact the academy at 573-8321 or Martin at 984-5101.

One of the key components of a successful forage production program is a solid fertilization plan. Gary Bates, forage specialist with University of Tennessee Extension Department of Plant Sciences, says to produce the forage required for grazing or hay, it is essential that the nutrients needed by the plants are provided in adequate quantities. “Typically, fertilization is considered a springtime procedure,” he said. “However, many reasons make fertilizer applications in the fall appealing for Tennessee producers. Bates lists these explanations: 1. Stockpiling of tall fescue. Applying fall nitrogen to tall fescue can increase the growth for grazing during the winter, reducing hay feeding by one or two months. 2. Fertilizer can be less expensive during fall. Often the price for fertilizer is cheaper during this time of the year compared to spring. Also, since it is not the busy season, it may be easier to get it done. 3. Only one application is needed if clovers are used. If clovers are utilized in a tall fescue, no nitrogen is needed during the spring. Since all the potash and phosphate required for a year can be applied at one time, applying all of these two, plus the nitrogen for stockpiling, can mean that only one fertilizer application is needed each year. 4. Improve cold tolerance of Bermuda grass. Since Tennessee is on the northern border

Mountain Press has been unable to reach Tollison. The federal attorney did tell Varlan his client may contest the judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling based on â&#x20AC;&#x153;proceduralâ&#x20AC;? concerns. After he admitted to running a pair of fraudulent investment firms out of his Sevier County home, essentially the only hope the 61-year-old Bolze had of not spending the rest of his life behind bars was convincing Varlan he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t deserve a lengthy prison stay. He tried a number of routes to help the judge reach that conclusion, with Tollison arguing Bolze shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be held responsible for folks in Europe who were victimized by his scam and that his victims shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be considered â&#x20AC;&#x153;particularly vulnerable.â&#x20AC;? Most of that effort didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stick, though, with the judge dismissing the pleas and the prosecutors so incensed by Bolzeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s apparently not accepting full responsibility for his crimes that they asked for the maximum sentence, an actual life term. During the sentencing hearings, Bolze also attempted to convince Varlan he should be released to allow him to begin working to make restitution to his victims as the court ordered him to do. Claiming he only wants to make things right with people he hopes will one day be his friends again, Bolze said he would like to be given the opportunity to move to Chicago to sell a computer program heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s developed to stock traders in that city. He vowed to remit all the money he made to a blind trust for the victims, with the exception of a considerable stipend to pay for his living expenses. The push infuriated Bolzeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victims, some of whom shook their heads in disbelief as they listened to his plea for freedom, believing what he was pitching is just another scam, rather than anything meant to help them. Apparently bolstered by the revelation of

Man guilty in six Memphis murders MEMPHIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jurors took less than two hours Monday to convict a man of murdering his brother and five others, including two children, in a bloody rampage in a Memphis home two years ago. Jessie Dotson, 35, faces the death penalty for one of the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worst mass slayings. He showed no emotion, looking straight ahead as the verdict was announced. Jurors concluded that Dotson shot and killed

his brother, Cecil Dotson, during a 2008 argument and then went after everyone else in the house with his gun and a knife to eliminate witnesses. Three other children were stabbed but survived. One of them, Cecil Dotson Jr., now 11, was found in a bathtub with a 4 1/2-inch knife blade embedded in his skull. He was a key prosecution witness against his uncle. Also killed were Jessie Dotsonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nephews, 4-yearold Cemario Dotson and

2-year-old Cecil Dotson II; his brotherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s girlfriend, Marissa Williams; and friends Hollis Seals and Shindri Robinson. Jessie Dotson, in his testimony, blamed the attack on gang members. He said he was at the house on Lester Street, a poor and crime-ridden part of Memphis, and hid under a bed during the slayings. He said he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t report them to police because he feared for his life. However, prosecutors

put Dotson Jr. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; who was 9 at the time of the attack â&#x20AC;&#x201D; on the stand last week. He testified that â&#x20AC;&#x153;Uncle Juniorâ&#x20AC;? shot his father and then attacked him with a knife. Another survivor, 8-year-old Cedric Dotson, also testified against his uncle. The trial has provided a glimpse into the world of Memphis gangs, with explanations of gang hierarchies and discussions of death violations â&#x20AC;&#x201D; actions that result in killing as punishment.

but Hendrix indicated he would invite the candidate to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;meet and greetâ&#x20AC;? with PBA members and local restaurant and hotel owners after the PBA indicated they felt it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know enough about the person. PBA member Al Blanton said Hendrix should have done more to keep the board informed of the process, although Hendrix is responsible for marking the hire.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;People will look at us like (weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re) .... idiots if we donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know how weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hiring,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s got to be a comfort level with this hire.â&#x20AC;? Hendrix acknowledged the prospective coordinator and the PBA and businesspeople need to be comfortable with each other. If they eventually decide against hiring the finalist from the first set of candidates, the committeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recommenda-

tion is that they advertise again and restart the process, he said. Also Monday, Hendrix said the clubhouse for the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refurbished golf club is still being worked on.

surveys that also showed Haslam leading by 20 or more points. Outside that battle, there doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appear to be much else drawing interest on the upcoming ballot. Voters will also have the opportunity to weigh in on contests for U.S. Congress, as well as the state House and Senate, but given Sevier Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dedication to the Republican Party, few doubt the outcome of those races. Early voting is quickly headed toward becoming the regular favorite way for a majority of local residents to have their say, with thousands having turned out in advance of

election day for both the May and August balloting this year. Many like its convenience, given there are several weeksâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; worth of days in which a vote can be cast, rather than just one day, Kuncitis says. The optionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s popularity has also been bolstered in recent years with the addition of a voting site in Seymour, with that new tradition continuing for this election. Early voting will oper-

ate from 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on weekdays and 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. on Saturdays at the Voting Machine Warehouse on Dolly Parton Parkway from Wednesday through Oct. 28. In Seymour, ballots can be cast at the public library on West Macon Lane from 11:30 a.m. to 6 p.m. weekdays and 11:30 a.m. to 2:30 p.m. on Saturdays Oct. 14-16 and 21-23.

Bolzeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s previous criminal record, which includes convictions for several other financial crimes, Varlan also rejected that effort. Instead, he sentenced Bolze to 240 months in jail for each of the wire fraud charges and 87 months for each of the money laundering offenses. With the sentences for several of those running concurrently, the actual sentence comes out to 327 months, or just over 27 years, followed by monitored release. Bolze has admitted he took in more than $20 million from investors in Tennessee, Hawaii, California and even across Europe through the scheme, in which he used money from new investors to pay off existing clients. All that began to unravel when the economy tanked and some of his patrons, suspicious when their dividend checks either stopped coming or started bouncing, demanded their money back. Those folks launched an investigation with a private detective in November 2008, but they never had a chance to really determine what was going on before Bolze fled Sevier County in mid-December 2008. He was found in March 2009 in Jersey Shores, Pa., not far from where he grew up. An IRS special agent who investigated Bolzeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s actions told the court Bolze had already borrowed a laptop from a friend in the area and was attempting to recruit new investors in hopes he could pay off the angry ones he left behind. Bolze claims he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t set out to run a fraud, telling the court he simply told some people about his ideas for daytrading and they asked if they could get involved. From there, he maintains he saw the effort as a way to win new friends, with plenty of folks ready to attend swanky parties at his massive Gatlinburg estate when he was giving them the returns he was. However, he told the judge all along he knew what he was doing was wrong, though he insisted it escalated to that point and that he did not set out to run a criminal enterprise.

Google tests cars that can steer without drivers WASHINGTON (AP) — Google Inc. is road-testing cars that steer, stop and start without a human driver, the company says. The goal is to “help prevent traffic accidents, free up people’s time and reduce carbon emissions” through ride sharing and “the new ’highway trains of tomorrow,”’ project leader Sebastian Thrun wrote Saturday on Google’s corporate blog. The cars are never unmanned, Thrun wrote. He said a backup driver is always behind the wheel to monitor the software. It’s not the first signal that Google wants to change how people get from place to place. In a speech Sept. 29 at the TechCrunch “Disrupt” conference, Google CEO Eric Schmidt said “your car should drive itself. It just makes sense.” “It’s a bug that cars were invented before computers,” Schmidt said. The cars have traveled a total of 140,000 miles on major California roads without much human intervention, according to Google’s corporate blog. The Mountain View, Calif.-based technology giant has sent seven test cars a total of 1,000 miles without a human touching the controls at all, the New York Times

reported. The newspaper published a report on the cars earlier Sunday. The cars know speed limits, traffic patterns and road maps, Thrun’s posting says. They use video cameras, radar sensors and lasers to detect other cars. Driving between Northern California and Southern California, the cars have navigated San Francisco’s curvy Lombard Street, Los Angeles’ Hollywood Boulevard and the cliff-hugging Pacific Coast Highway, the blog says. Engineers consider the cars safer because they react more quickly than humans, the New York Times said. It said Google has not revealed how it hopes to profit from the research. The company is flush with cash, though, and pushing numerous projects such as the cars that are unrelated to its core business, said Rob Enderle, principal analyst with the Enderle Group in San Jose, Calif. “The word ’focus’ is a word Google has never learned,” Enderle said, pointing to projects involving electricity distribution, vehicle design and artificial intelligence. He said cars that can drive themselves would allow commuters more time to surf the web, something Google would encourage.

Diplomat Hillary Clinton must watch election from sidelines WASHINGTON (AP) — Hillary Rodham Clinton never met a political battle she didn’t like. Until now. Amid frenzied insideWashington speculation about her political ambitions, the secretary of state is staying firmly on the sidelines. As Democrats and Republicans fight for control of Congress in next month’s midterms, the former first lady and senator will be sitting it out, literally half a world away. Clinton ran staff and reporters ragged during her 2008 Democratic presidential campaign. Now, barred by convention and tradition from partisan political activity as America’s top diplomat, she is spending the weeks ahead of the Nov. 2 balloting doing administration business in Europe and Asia. “I am not in any way involved in any of the political campaigns that are going on up to this midterm election,” Clinton said last week. Politicking isn’t a problem for her husband, former President Bill Clinton. On Monday he was in Kentucky bringing attention to Democratic Senate candidate Jack Conway, who is facing a strong run by Republican Rand Paul, and then heading to West Virginia to help Democratic Gov. Joe Manchin’s bid against Republican John Raese. The next day the former president is expected to join a rally in Las Vegas to boost Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid, who is running hard for re-election against Republican Sharron Angle. In Colorado, ahead of early voting in the state, Bill Clinton is scheduled

to rally voters in Denver on Oct. 18 on behalf of Democratic Sen. Michael Bennet. That visit comes in spite of Clinton’s endorsement of Bennet’s primary challenger, Andrew Romanoff. Fast-paced campaign appearances amid political twists and turns have been a part of Hillary Clinton’s life for decades. Not any more, she maintains, though her absence from the midterms campaign scene has done nothing to quell rumors that she might swap jobs with Vice President Joe Biden for the 2012 presidential race. Also whispered: That she harbors a desire to run for the White House again in 2016. Those rumors persist despite denials from Clinton and her staff as well as the White House. Keeping the chatter alive are polls showing that the public sees Clinton more

favorably than either Obama or Biden. A recent Associated Press-GfK poll showed Clinton with a 62 percent favorable rating and a 36 percent unfavorable rating. Obama’s numbers in a recent poll are 57 percent favorable and 42 percent unfavorable while Biden’s, from last August, are 50 percent favorable versus 43 percent unfavorable. When asked recently about the Biden swap scenario, she replied, “I have absolutely no interest and no reason for doing anything other than just dismissing these stories and moving on.” One of Clinton’s predecessors and the first woman to serve as secretary of state, Madeleine Albright, famously boasted that she had her political instincts “surgically removed” when she took the job. Clinton hasn’t gone that far, but she has come close.

NASHVILLE (AP) — A Tennessee teacher who was caught on video yelling at students and throwing furniture in a classroom has been placed on administrative leave. According to a statement from Metropolitan Nashville Public Schools, Donald Brian Wood, a teacher at McGavock High School, was removed from school and placed on leave after the incident during class on Friday. Leanne Smith, Wood’s sister, said Monday her brother is being treated at Vanderbilt University Medical Center after what she called a nervous breakdown. She said he acted “irrationally” and that he regrets the incident. A video posted on YouTube titled “Crazy Teacher goes off at mcgavock” shows a teacher telling the students to “shut up,” then flipping over furniture in the room.

BRISTOL (AP) — The Remote Area Medical Clinic in Bristol this weekend provided free medical care to about 1,370 people, but still more people had hoped to get help and were turned away. People waited for hours for their chance to receive care at the clinic, held at the Bristol Motor Speedway. A total of 865 volunteers from 18 states turned out to provide the free medical, dental and optical care, but RAM founder Stan Brock said that still was not enough to meet the demand. According to the Bristol Herald Courier, Brock said the clinic needs more doctor volunteers and about three times as many dentists as it had this weekend. RAM officials say 90 percent of the people they see need dental work. About 50 percent need glasses.

Pilot injured when ultralight craft falls

JEFFERSON CITY. (AP) — An ultralight aircraft has come down hard behind a school in Jefferson City, injuring the pilot. The pilot was taken to University of Tennessee Medical Center in Knoxville after the crash Monday morning behind Jefferson Middle School. No one on the ground was hurt and officials didn’t immediately release the pilot’s name.

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama is pushing a $50 billion plan to upgrade the nation’s transportation networks and create jobs, bringing governors and mayors to the White House to help him make the case. Obama said Monday that clogged roads and crumbling infrastructure are costing American lives, eroding productivity and hindering economic growth. He spoke from the Rose Garden after meeting with state and local officials and Cabinet officials, who stood behind him for his comments. The timing of his announcement comes as the public sector slashed 159,000 jobs in September, including the largest cuts by local governments in 28 years. Obama is eager to show constant attention to the hurting economy, especially ahead of the Nov. 2 congressional elections.

SAN JOSE MINE, Chile (AP) — The engineer leading Chilean rescue efforts says his team has successfully tested a rescue capsule nearly all the way down to where the miners are trapped. Andres Sougarett says the empty capsule descended 2,000 feet, just 46 feet short of the chamber where 33 miners have been trapped since an Aug. 5 collapse. He said all would be in place at midnight tonight to begin the rescue. Mining Minister Laurence Golborne told reporters Monday that the capsule performed very well in the hole — that it didn’t even loosen any dust. He did not say why the capsule did not go to the bottom. The steel capsule was lowered by winch into the hole after its top 295 feet (90 meters) were encased in tubing.

The document filed Monday didn’t indicate that police found any remains in their search, which was conducted the previous night. Ten-year-old Zahra Clare Baker was reported missing over the weekend, but police say they’re not sure if anyone outside her home has seen her in weeks.

Lottery Numbers

Haslam to report $2.8M from self NASHVILLE (AP) — Gubernatorial candidate Bill Haslam will report third quarter contributions of $3.15 million plus an injection of $2.8 million of his own money, the Republican’s campaign told The Associated Press on Sunday. The reporting period straddles the Aug. 5 primary. The campaign didn’t immediately have a breakdown of how much of the money was contributed before or since Haslam won the GOP nomination, and didn’t

have a final figure on how much cash remained on hand. Haslam captured 47 percent of the vote in the spirited GOP primary, compared with U.S. Rep. Zach Wamp’s 29 percent and state Senate Speaker Ron Ramsey’s 22 percent. Spokesman David Smith said Haslam wasn’t hesitant about tapping his personal wealth. “We had a contentious primary, and Bill always maintained that he would put in what he deemed necessary to get his mes-



sage out,” Smith said. Haslam had given $1.45 million to his bid through earlier reports, meaning his total personal contributions have reached about $4.25 million. The campaign has since paid back about $760,000, said Smith. Haslam was president of the family-founded Pilot truck stop chain before he was elected Knoxville mayor in 2003. His rivals charged that that they could never match Haslam’s personal wealth, and that he was

trying to buy the election. Smith noted that the third quarter contributions bring Haslam’s totals to $12.5 million from 10,500 outside donors since he joined the race in January 2009 — considerably more than any other candidate seeking to succeed termlimited Democratic Gov. Phil Bredesen. A spokesman for Democratic nominee Mike McWherter did not immediately return a message seeking comment on Sunday afternoon.

state/nation quote roundup “We recognize an institution is not going to be perfect on graduation and completion rates. But at the same time, we know they can do better than they’re doing. And if you place the financial rewards around completion, then you will motivate that.” — Eric Fingerhut, chancellor of the Ohio Board of Regents, on a report that students who drop out of college after one year are costing taxpayers billions of dollars annually

“They wear these little Speedos and they grind against each other and it’s just a terrible thing. Why would you bring your children to that?” — New York Republican gubernatorial candidate Carl Paladino, saying that he does not discriminate against gays but thinks young children shouldn’t be exposed to gay culture

“We had a contentious primary, and Bill always maintained that he would put in what he deemed necessary to get his message out.” — David Smith, a spokesman for Tennessee Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Haslam

Joan Sutherland

GENEVA (AP) — Joan Sutherland, a former small town secretarial school student whose mastery of tone, astonishing range and vocal control vaulted her into the top echelons of opera, has died at 83 after a fourSutherland decade career that won her praise as the successor to legend Maria Callas. Nicknamed “La Stupenda” — the Stupendous One — by her fans after a fantastic 1960 performance of Handel’s Alcina and lauded by Luciano Pavarotti as “the voice of the century,” she died Sunday at her home near Geneva, after what her family described as a long illness. And it was not only Italian fans who were entranced. For Germans, she was the “Koloraturawunder.” English-speaking operagoers called her “The Incomparable” for her mastery of the coloratura — the vocal ability to effortlessly sing difficult trills and rapid passages in high registers.

‘Network’ most sexist movie ever I just saw “The Social Network,” which debuted in first place over the weekend. Well, gee, who would have thought that Aaron Sorkin would create the most sexist movie ever? The brainiac political screenwriter, who developed “The West Wing” TV series, even beats out Mel Gibson as creator of the most womanfree character zone in film history. Let’s admit it, for all his talents, Mel has a problem seeing women except through the eyes of a man. But the women of, say, “Apocalypto” are feminist icons compared to the way the women of Harvard are depicted in “The Social Network.” “The Social Network” is the story of Mark Zuckerberg, who founded Facebook with his college buddy, Eduardo Saverin. It is based on an unauthorized biography, “The Accidental Billionaires.” In the movie, Mark founded Facebook in order to get the attention of a girl who dumps him, and to get back at Harvard bluebloods who insult him and also because, well, he wants to be cool. In the movie Mark has just one real friend, and in the end he betrays that friend, cheating him out of his share of the company they founded together, under the tutelage of hipster nerd-boy genius, Sean Parker (founder of Napster), played by Justin Timberlake. Mark’s realization of his own wrongdoing is grippingly and subtly portrayed by Sorkin and colleagues. In the end, bluntly told that no jury is going to like him, recognizing that Eduardo did indeed help found the company, and that ultimately the payout of gazillions is “just a speeding ticket” to the world’s youngest billionaire, the movie Mark settles the lawsuit and restores Eduardo’s title as Facebook co-founder. He is last shown, aching to “friend” the young woman who dumped him. The real-life Mark, just 26 this year, seems touchy about his reputation, especially around the subject of women. Just a few days before the movie opening, he suddenly donated $100 million to Newark, N.J., schools. His official biographer, David Kirkpatrick, hastens to assure us that far from being a loner pining for the first girl who dumped him, in real life Mark has been living for the last five years or so with a woman named Priscilla Chan. (Apparently the movie’s portrayal of Zuckerberg and Saverin having a “thing” for Asian girls isn’t totally off the mark. At the Jewish fraternity at Harvard, the movie Eduardo and Mark oogle a group of Asian coeds, and Eduardo exclaims that it’s no wonder they both like Asian girls: “They’re hot, they’re smart, and they’re not Jewish!” Self-hating anti-semitic misogyny. Cool hat trick, right?) The women at Harvard in “The Social Network,” Asian as well as other abundantly represented ethnic groups, do nothing but drink, strip off their clothes, and kiss each other in a desperate attempt to get the men to notice they are alive. With sex ratios at American colleges trending 60 percent female, I’m told this is not far off the mark for how many college women behave, but surely not this desperately and with an utter lack of any sense of their sexual value? Surely there are some women around Harvard doing something of interest other than dropping their bras for men and giggling drunkenly. It would have been nice to have a glimpse. In Sorkin’s movie there are fathers, but no mothers. Male professors, administrators, entrepreneurs and angel investors, but no women in these roles. While the men code, underage girls giggle and flirt and drink and snort and vomit and strip. This is hardly Mark Zuckerberg’s fault, but what is Aaron Sorkin’s excuse? — Maggie Gallagher, president of the National Organization for Marriage, is known for her conservative social policy analysis of social trends and conditions.

Grand, old, magical Opry’s 85th birthday a chance to salute a legendary place in musical history It was fitting to have Dolly Parton on hand over the weekend as the Grand Ole Opry celebrated its 85th birthday. Parton’s rendition of “I Will Always Love You” was an appropriate tribute to a place that has become a musical and cultural legend, a touchstone for what country music has come to mean to so many people. The party on Saturday night featured performances by Parton, Taylor Swift and Trace Adkins. It started Friday, when Crystal Gayle, Jimmy Wayne and Roy Clark performed. On Saturday there was a picnic on the plaza of the Opry House with free live music. It’s important to remember that all this came just a few months after the Opry

building was flooded. The stage sat under four feet of water in early May. A restoration project cleaned the building and replaced the stage, dressing rooms and audience seating. “They’ve done a wonderful job revamping it, and it’s even better than it was,” Parton said. She sang three songs, including “Jolene,” “9 to 5” and “I Will Always Love You.” The Opry began on the night of Nov. 28, 1925, when an announcer on WSM introduced fiddle player Uncle Jimmy Thompson as the first performer on a new show called “The WSM Barn Dance.” The show is still going strong. It has launched many careers and led Nashville to become Music City. Early Opry

performers such as Roy Acuff, Minnie Pearl, Ernest Tubb and Bill Monroe became legends at Ryman Auditorium. The Opry left the Ryman on March 15, 1974. The next night, President Nixon joined Acuff at the Grand Ole Opry House. An eight-foot circle of hardwood was taken from the Ryman and placed center stage at the Opry House. Thousands of people attend shows every year, while millions tune in to 650 WSM, Sirius XM Satellite Radio, syndicated radio, or Sevier County is proud of its association with the Grand Ole Opry and its contribution to the mystique with our own Dolly Parton. Let’s hope we’re all around for the centennial celebration in 2025.

Political view

Public forum Denying patients pain medication may force them to commit crimes

Editor: For most of my 66 years, I have shown major interest in the law; from a legal aide to an emergency services officer on NYPD and an EMT. I have never encountered morphine as a street drug until Sept. 24. The main headline of that day’s Mountain Press reported the arrests of nine people in a major county sweep by the Sheriff’s Office of drug suspects, three of whom dealt in morphine. While taking Murfreesboro Police Department’s Citizen Police Academy three years ago, I asked one senior officer about morphine because I was taking 100mg twice a day for a back injury. Even he had not encountered morphine on the street, stating the more popular drugs as far overshadowing. So why has morphine suddenly become so popular? Simply because our local doctors apparently are boycotting the drug. Two pain doctors have told me to undergo a “procedure” or get lost. When you have no faith in a doctor and don’t even know the person, it is very stupid to allow any invasion of the spine, by scalpel or needle.

When that same doctor tells you to do it his way or the highway, any trust must go out the door. I have not been able to get any pain medicine for my injured spine since 38 pills on July 27 at 80mg, just about one-third my 11-year dosage. When a doctor forces a patient to suffer immobilizing pain when a viable alternative (morphine) is available, that is a clear violation of his Hippocratic oath: “First do no harm.” Today, I am faced with violating the law for the first time in my life or suffering the pain of withdrawal and a damaged spine; damage that forced me to collect my Medicare far too early. I fell 16 feet onto a sharp rock in 1991 and slowly grew to the 100mg level of morphine in 2000. With a legal dosage of 200mg a day, two local doctors and two so-called pain clinics have forced me into one Satanic corner without the slightest known reason. I don’t know about you, but I consider that harmful. I can’t help but wonder how much of your tax money is supporting prisoners who were forced to violate the law when their legal drugs were not available, and where the street dealers got their morphine. Iran, maybe? Dave Darcy Sevierville

SCHS sweeps county CC meet By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — The Sevier County Cross Country Championships featured some great displays of athletic ability and also some first-class sportsmanship Monday afternoon at City Park in Sevierville. While the Bears and Bearettes swept the team competitions, it wasn’t an all Purple and White finish in the individual honors. Seymour senior Luke Hall, who’s also one of the top wrestlers in the state, earned the title of county boys individual champion, after an intense backand-forth battle with Sevier County sophomore Patrick Hanlon. Hall credited his top competitor’s integrity post-race, however, in helping him earn the victory. The course, which featured a somewhat complicated route, caused some issues for a few competitors. “Your teammate did a good act,” Hall told another of the Smoky Bears following the race. “We were right there next to each other, and I didn’t know (the course), so I started going off this way, because I didn’t know. (Once I got corrected) he slowed down a little bit until we got even again — that was all sportsmanship on his part — all sportsmanship.”

With Hall graduating after this season, Hanlon will be the odds-on favorite for the 2011 county race. In girls action, Bearette Hannah Pelham ran away from the field to capture her individual championship. See CROSS COUNTRY, Page A12 Jason Davis/The Mountain Press

The dream is still alive for the SCHS Bearettes volleyball team By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer

Sevier County’s Sydney Duncan (15), right, goes up for a block against the visiting Cherokee Lady Chiefs on Monday.

SEVIERVILLE — The dream is still alive. The Sevier County High School Smoky Bearettes volleyball team’s goal of earning their first-ever region tournament berth and possibly a district tournament championship remains achievable after SCHS (24-9) swept visiting District 2-AAA rival Cherokee Lady Chiefs 25-13, 25-19 and 25-12 on the opening round of the District 2-AAA Tournament on Monday night in Sevierville. Monday’s win advances Sevier County past the single-elimination round of the tournament, and the Purple-and-White ladies are now guaranteed at least two more matches this season. The Bearettes are shooting for a top-two finish in the district tournament in order to achieve the programs’ first region tournament contest. They would rather earn the outright district title, however, in order to get one more home game this season. Sevier County is 14-0 at home this year. “We’d like to have another home match,” said SCHS coach Billy Ward, following Monday’s win. But in order to achieve the dream, the SCHS ladies must stay as aggressive as they have been all year. “When we stay aggressive, aggressive mistakes I can live with,” said Ward. “The soft mistakes, the mental mistakes, that’s what we have to avoid in order to win at this time of the year. You’ve got to be able to take your chances and not worry about what the other team does so much.” The Bearettes will play the winner of either Morristown East or Jefferson County 6:45 p.m. tonight at Morristown West High School, the No. 1 overall team in

Cobey Hitchcock/The Mountain Press

Sevier County’s Kaycee Dixon (14) goes down for a dig. District 2-AAA. “We’ve seen all these teams (in the district) a lot this year, seen them all twice,” said Ward. “Jefferson County and Morristown East are both playing hot right at the end (of the regular season), and that’s the time of the year you want to be playing your best. “So, hopefully, we’ll come out and take care of what Sevier County does. Our girls have played consistent ..., and hopefully that can transfer from all year long into the tournament.” Sevier County’s Hailey Tackett led the Bearettes to victory on Monday night, finishing the match with 22 digs, 16 points, 15 kills and five aces. Kaycee Dixon also came up huge in the win with 24 assists, eight digs and three aces. “We had a couple of shady spots, but we were able to regroup and take a deep breath,” said Ward about Monday’s match with Cherokee. “I thought the difference was that we outserved them, and our girls did a good

job of being aggressive with their serves.” SCHS assistant coach Jill Kroll was in charge of calling the Bearettes serves on Monday night, and she decided to turn Hailey Tackett loose for seven-straight points coming on powerful jump serves, running the final match to 24-10 before the Cherokee team could answer with a defensive stop. The move not only allowed the Bearettes to finish the opening round in a flash, it also offered a source of intimidation for the other district programs in the stands watching the match. “When the score is going your way, you feel a little more energized,” said Ward. “Coach Kroll calls all our serves for us, and she did a great job for us. (Coach Kroll) gave (Hailey) a chance to let the good crowd here see what we’re capable of. Hopefully they took notice that we can bring a lot of different types of serves, and that can keep them off balance.”

Girlfriend concerned with boyfriend’s odd fantasies



Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: My wonderful boyfriend of two years recently told me he has rape fantasies -- both of being the rapist and of being raped. He said that, for obvious reasons, it’s not something he talks about. But things are getting really serious between us, and he doesn’t want to keep any secrets hidden from me. I am fairly openminded, but this seems strange, and I’m not comfortable discussing it with my friends or family. I am part of several Internet communities, however, and asked my chat buddies what they thought. Many of them said it was a perfectly normal “kink,” and that fantasy isn’t the same as reality. It doesn’t mean he would ever do it. Is that true? My boyfriend is a wonderful guy, and I love him, but I’d be lying if I said this revelation didn’t set me on edge a bit. When he first told me, I actually checked the national sex offender registry, but he wasn’t on it. Annie, I just need some reassurance. Should I be worried about this, or has my life been more sheltered than I thought? -- Can’t Help Being Concerned Dear Can’t Help: Try not to overreact. Rape fantasies are fairly common, even among men, and they are actually about dominance and submission. Your boyfriend doesn’t want to hurt you. He may simply get turned on by being totally in charge or being completely overtaken. He should not force you into anything, but if you are

willing to role-play with him, it could add excitement to your love life. The choice is yours. Dear Annie: I have a situation that has me up a tree. Whenever my wife and I have a family get-together, one of our grown sons will show up with extra kids. I have begged him to call first, but he just shows up. When they do ask if their child can bring a friend, we usually say OK. We have a large family, and it’s a lot of cooking. The last time we had the family over, our oldest son came with one of his kid’s friends, and when I said he should have asked, he got angry and took his family and walked out. Now he says I need to apologize. I think I have the right to have only family over if that is what my wife and I want. It’s still our home. I have tried to talk to him, but he won’t return my calls. If you say I need to apologize, I will. -Lost for Words Dear Lost: You don’t need to apologize. This is your home, and your son should ask before bringing extra people over, even children. Now decide how important it is to you, because your son sounds too stubborn and selfish to admit he’s wrong. Sometimes, it helps maintain a good relationship to say you are sorry even when you are not

at fault. We recommend doing that and explaining to your son how much you would appreciate it if he would let you know in advance when he is planning to bring a guest. And ask your wife to back you up. Dear Annie: I did not agree with your answer to “Choking in S.W. Washington,” whose neighbors smoke on their porch and it blows into their home. Why does she have the right to tell someone where they can smoke on their own property? I cannot believe anyone would have the nerve to approach a neighbor about this. If the smoke is so bad, they should stop letting their children play with the neighbors’ kids. -- Upset in Florida Dear Florida: Although people are entitled to smoke on their own property, when it starts infiltrating their neighbors’ homes, it becomes secondhand smoke, which is linked to allergies, asthma and cancer. It is not unreasonable to request that they blow in another direction. But we also recommend fans.
