SEVIERVILLE — A local attorney whose license was recently suspended is now facing legal woes of his own after he allegedly threatened a restaurant employee who wouldn’t accept his check, and then struck the

man as he tried to leave. William Lee Wheatley is also facing charges for allegedly passing bad checks. The Tennessee Supreme Court suspended Wheatley’s license Sept. 10. He cannot currently represent clients. Wheatley’s actions at El Primo restaurant led to his arrest, and to a lockdown at Pigeon Forge Primary School, where his daughter is a student. “It was strictly precautionary,” Director of Schools Jack Parton

said concerning the lockdown. “Our resource officer in the city of Pigeon Forge took into account the situation, (and) they did a very commendable job. I’m extremely pleased with the contingency plan they have in place there.” Wheatley was later arrested without incident at a residence in Sevier County. The search started at about noon Wednesday, when an employee at El Primo called dispatchers. The employee said Wheatley had

tried to pass a check at the restaurant, and was refused. Records show he is accused of having passed two bad checks at the restaurant. Wheatley allegedly threatened the man at some point during the confrontation, before striking him as he tired to leave. “The suspect allegedly brandished a wooden nightstick and threatened the complainant,” said Bob Stahlke, public information See wheatley, Page A4

Lesson learned as Lindsey Vaught runs into the back of Kelsey Spangler during a texting while driving exercise by selected Pigeon Forge High School students. The program, “The Great Hang Up,” gave students a chance to see and feel the consequences of taking your eyes off the road.

PIGEON FORGE — Thirteen Pigeon Forge High School students had the opportunity on Wednesday to learn just how dangerous texting while driving can be. It was an activity that Pigeon Forge firefighters Kevin Nunn and Matt Lovitt coordinated at The Track, after Nunn had seen an anti-texting program featured on the news. “This program came out of Canada — I saw it on CNN one day. They had kids drive around in go-carts, once while texting and once while not texting, and timed them. It hit me that we could do this here — Pigeon Forge is a haven for go-karts,” Nunn said with a laugh. And so Nunn and Lovitt enlisted the aid of the Pigeon Forge Police Department and AAA East Tennessee and invited a PFHS government class to make it happen. “It was a good joint venture,” Nunn said. “We told (the students), ‘You’re going to text just a simple phrase — like ‘Row, row your boat’ — to another driver, and they’ll text the same thing back to you.’ “We also had policemen and firemen out there trying to throw things off course by driving and suddenly coming to a stop. We timed them going around without texting, and then timed them while they were texting. The second time around, they were 30 seconds slower.” And even though the students were driving only 14 miles per hour (the fastest the go-karts would allow them to go), it still wasn’t slow enough to prevent collisions. “The guys were great — they already had so much planned,” Stephanie Shipley Milani, AAA East Tennessee See driving, Page A4

PF commissioners skeptical of treatment plant By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer PIGEON FORGE — City officials may have been impressed with wastewater technology in use in Murfreesboro during a recent visit to the Middle Tennessee city, but that doesn’t mean they’re all convinced it could work here. During a work session Wednesday, four City Commission members expressed reservations about a proposal to locate such a plant here, while only one admitted to being completely sold on the idea. Concerns ranged from cost to the potential for bad publicity, while Commissioner David

If the plant remains in the municipal limits, the treated water would make the whole 12-mile trip to the river. If the property on Chapman hosts the facility, raw sewage would be pumped through force mains to the treatment center, then the conditioned water would be sent to the river from there.

PIGEON FORGE — Tom Newman talks excitedly standing below a lazily spinning ceiling fan in a back room of Mama’s Farmhouse. He’s battling platters of fried chicken and bowls of beans to keep his audience’s attention as he stresses the importance of United Way of Sevier County having a better year in 2010. “The last few years have not been pretty. We all know that,” Newman concedes. “A lot of nonprofits are taking serious hits. When we’re asking people to give money, we better have a compelling reason because a lot of

folks are struggling.” Newman, United Way of Sevier County’s executive director, describes the effort to stem that tide of tough years as a “challenge. A big challenge.” But he’s telling groups like this one, made up mostly of people who have never been involved with United Way, it can be done. “We’ve got our house in order. We know exactly where we want to go and how to get there,” Newman insists. “I have no doubts about the years to come because, whatever we do this year, we’re going to build upon that every year ahead.” See united way, Page A4

10th national park superintendent Dave Beal dies in Oregon at age 84 Submitted Report NATIONAL PARK — Great Smoky Mountains National Park’s 10th superintendent, Merrill D. (Dave) Beal, 84, died at home in Eugene, Ore. Beal’s final National Park Service (NPS) assignment was as Smokies superintendent from December 1978 to 1983. He also served as assistant superintendent from 1969-1972. “One of Dave’s major accomplishments during his tenure at the Smokies was his involvement in completing the park’s general management plan, a core planning document that continues to guide Park managers in balancing visitor use and facility development with preservation,� said Park Superintendent Dale Ditmanson. The document described the future operations of the Park after the major work was done in completing construction of the park’s facilities, i.e., roads, trails, picnic areas, campgrounds, for visitor use. A draft of the document, which took several years under previous administrations to develop, was released to the public for comment one year after he took the park’s top job. A major undertaking in its time, the planning initiative received intensive public comments on a number of controversial issues and was finalized and released in 1982, setting the park’s direction. Beal was also known for work that he did to

improve the park’s u t i l ity infrastructure, r o a d s , t r a i l s , backcountry use, Beal and development of new interpretive guides, handbooks, and exhibits to serve park visitors. In addition, he worked with neighboring tourism communities on regional planning for the 1982 Knoxville World’s Fair and felt the pressures to provide improved services to accommodate the predictions of higher park use due to the influx of national and international tourists to the area. Beal believed strongly in cooperative relationships with surrounding communities. In a News Record & Press article dated June 15, 1981, he was quoted as saying, “We do need to work together—all of us—to provide visitors to this region a satisfying and rewarding experience,� stressing the statistically proven fact that tourism here is a ‘regional’ thing.

“They don’t come in ever increasing numbers just to visit the park or to see Gatlinburg and explore the varied attractions in Pigeon Forge ... They come to do all these things.� A biographical sketch filed in Park archives stated that Beal began his association with NPS at age 17 as a seasonal employee at Yellowstone National Park, Wyo. While holding the chief naturalist position at Grand Canyon National Park, Ariz., he wrote a popular book entitled, “Story Behind the Scenery.� During his 34 year career, he served in several top management positions that included Deputy Regional Director and Regional Director of the NPS’s Midwest Region. “Dave will be remembered for his effective leadership skills and his positive approach in dealing with Park neighbors and stakeholders,� said Ditmanson.

PIGEON FORGE — There may be a bushel of theaters in Pigeon Forge, but the folks behind the one that’s opening today say theirs is one of a kind in the area and even in rarefied company nationwide. The first shows at The Forge Cinemas will start at 11:15 a.m. today after years of planning and months of construction. Those who take them in will be among the first to enjoy the $3.8 million addition to Waldens Landing that introduces all-digital projection and sound, as well as 3-D capabilities to the area. The management of Holrob Investments, which owns the center, and Phoenix Big Cinemas, which is managing the theater, literally rolled out the red carpet Thursday night at a celebration of the premiere of Forge Cinemas that drew local officials and plenty of curious onlookers. Phoenix Big Cinemas President Phil Zacheretti told the crowd he’s excited to finally be to the point of turning on the popcorn makers and projectors. “We’re awfully glad to be here,� Zacheretti said. “We’ve wanted to build in Sevier County and we’ve finally accomplished it.� Phoenix has looked at other opportunities to build in the area, but none of those worked out, he told The Mountain Press on Thursday. That the partnership with Vickers has produced the state-of-the-art facility that is among only a handful in the nation like it is a testament to Vickers’ perseverance. The developer says he has dreamed of opening a theater at the center

for about five years, but was really pushed into it when the economy took its downturn and the shops at Waldens Landing started to feel the effects. That’s when he knew the time was right to remake some of the facade at the complex for the five-screen, 623-seat cinema. “I’m excited to be able to open this great new theater,� Vickers said Thursday. “We always felt like this would be a good addition here. It makes Waldens Landing now just an ideal place to spend the evening.� With candy and nearing 100 types of popcorn, Crowley believes he’s found it. He’s betting on the theater driving traffic through the complex and, while they can’t take his offerings to the shows, he’s hoping at least some of the movie-goers find themselves hungry for more than one flavor of popcorn. It seems likely Crowley made a good decision locating in Waldens Landing. Though the theater wasn’t event open yet, countless browsers at the center paused to check out the new addition over recent weeks. Among those are Roger and Carol Oram, a pair of Michiganders who say they come to the area often. While they conceded they don’t go to a lot of movies, they said the the-

ater might be an option on future visits. “If it’s raining or something outside, we might check it out,� Carol Oram said. While that’s less than a ringing endorsement, that’s OK for Vickers and Zacheretti. They’re betting on locals to drive the business at the theater, where matinee tickets will be $7, admission after 6 p.m. will be $9 and almost every show will be $6 each Tuesday. Like Crowley, it seems they’ve made a good wager. Theater staff, who were involved in last-minute preparations like training and setting up balloon replicas of the Oscars, had to frequently step into the ticket booth to sell passes for today’s shows to folks like Sevierville resident Bob McMillon. “I got two tickets to see ‘Red’ at 5:30,� McMillon said. “We’re really looking forward to it.� McMillon has apparently been anticipating the opening for quite some time and believes plenty of other local residents have been, too. “I think everyone is really looking forward to a new, modern theater,� he said. “I think it’s very good for Pigeon Forge and the area here. It’s a really nice addition.� n

State wants bike ridersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; input Submitted Report NASHVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As bicyclists across Tennessee prepare to hit the roads to enjoy the fall scenery, the Tennessee Department of Transportation is asking bike riders to rate their experiences peddling on the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highways. The new online survey will be used as TDOT officials work to update the state bike route network. Input from the survey will help guide the department in developing a comprehensive bicycling network, assess state routes with respect to bicycle suitability, and determine future action items relevant to furthering the goals of TDOTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Bicycle and Pedestrian plan. In order to provide con-

nections to cyclistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; destinations, TDOT invites the public to participate in the online survey by Oct. 30. The survey is available at bikeped/default.htm. In 2005 TDOTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 25-year plan recommended a statewide bicycle system. Since that time, the department recognized that changes call for an update to the existing bicycle route network. The state has made major improvements since that time. This year, Tennessee jumped 19 positions in the annual ranking of Bicycle Friendly States by the League of American Cyclists, from 43rd to 24th.

Knoxville was named a Bicycle Friendly Community at the Bronze level by the League of American Bicyclists, joining Chattanooga.

Vice President Kenny Diehl noted. “There are some risks involved in pumping untreated waste that far,” Diehl said. Those stem from the fact the lines to carry the sewage would run across a host of private properties on its way to the plant. Any issues with the line would require involved procedures to shut off the flow to ensure there is no spillage. Additionally, if a breakage should occur, not completely unlikely with a pipe of that length, the line would be spewing untreated wastewater, Diehl pointed out. Additionally, the project is expected to cost $45 million without land acquisition, a good deal more than the projected $31.6 million bill for the alternative. That option calls for the construction of stateof-the-art technology that would virtually eliminate odor from the new facility and produce effluent so clean it could actually be reused for everything from irrigating medians to washing cars. “In most instances, what this system produces is as good as the water in the creek,” Diehl told the group. However, there are concerns with that proposal, as well. For instance, the plan would have the city construct a plant that likely could process 5 million gallons of waste a day (MGD). While there is the potential to build a larger facility, the current proposal is only 1 MGD larger than the existing plant, which is already near capacity. The other option would result in an 8 MGD plant. Additionally, some officials worried the city couldn’t use as much water as the plant could process and feared potential visitors would be turned off by the new technology. “I don’t like the idea of the reuse. I don’t like it at all,” Commissioner Randal Robinson said. “If word gets around that we’re spraying sewer water all over town, think how that would hurt us. I even had someone already tell me they heard we’re going to be drinking this water.” Wear, who was the

Newman and other United Way supporters are a flurry of activity these days, rushing from one gathering like this to the next, planning a cadré of special events and organizing employee donation campaigns. They got a late start on this year’s fundraising effort, a drive that provides funding to 17 local community service organizations, and they know they’re facing, as Newman says, a challenge. But Newman, the former director of the regional Boy Scout organization, seems ready for the fight. “I would love to be finished by the holiday season,” he asserts, drawing surprised looks from some in the crowd. Part of Newman’s pitch to this group is working to battle misconceptions about the group. Newman himself admits he had his own when he came to work at the agency. “When I first came on board, I had to figure out why United Way is important,” Newman admits sheepishly. What he determined is that the agency, through the annual fundraising efforts, saves the other organizations it serves the time and money of having to raise all their operating money themselves. “We want our community partners to focus on what they do best and leave the money raising to us,”

The Mountain Press ◆ Friday, October 15, 2010 only commissioner who didn’t express concerns about the potential for a repurified water plant here, was happy to take on the misgivings with Diehl’s help. The two men pointed out the plant’s capacity would actually be higher than the 5 MGD it would likely be rated. That’s because it would have storage tanks where water could be held until lower-demand times if the plant is overwhelmed. Diehl said that could mean the actual capacity is “two to two-and-a-half times” more than what it’s rated. Wear reminded the group they learned Murfreesboro is using its repurified water to irrigate hundreds of acres in an effort to get rid of millions of gallons that regularly flow into its plant. However, that wouldn’t be required here because wastewater levels here regularly fluctuate, with the full capacity only needed during the busiest days of the tourism season. That would mean the irrigation needs would be low and the rest of the water could still be released into the Little Pigeon. Additionally, Wear told his fellow commissioners, while calling himself a “geek” who had done considerable reading on the subject, Pigeon Forge at most would have to get rid of 1 MGD. That feat could easily be accomplished by irrigating a 116-acre farm that appears to be at the top of the running for location of that type of facility. Finally, the two men teamed up again to dispel Robinson’s publicity concerns. Diehl pointed out communities in Florida are already required to find creative ways to use most of their treated wastewater to the point where all the irrigation at Walt Disney World is done with repurified water. Certainly that fact has not hurt that tourist destination, Diehl said. Beyond not just being a detriment, Wear envisioned the chance for the technology to serve as an asset in the city’s publicity. “In today’s world, going green is the thing to do,” he said. “I am a strong advocate for the reuse. I think it’s where everybody is headed.” n

Newman says, taking a sip from a Coke sweating in a Mason jar nearby. “We try to be the experts on fundraising. We want them to be able to help those children or help those senior citizens without having to spend all their time raising money.” Another important thing he learned is that all the decisions about how the cash United Way brings in is distributed. “What makes United Way different is that volunteers just like you and just like every person who gives to us serve on the Allocations Committee that determines what level of support is given to each agency,” Newman explains. “This is your United Way.

officer for Sevierville Police Department.” As he drove out, he struck the complainant with an open car door, and then left the business.” Sevierville police alerted other jurisdiction about the incident, including Pigeon Forge, when they put out a bulletin asking officers to stop Wheately. That led to the lockdown at Pigeon Forge, as officers were concerned that Wheatley might try to pick up his daughter. He was charged with aggravated assault in relation to the incident at El Primo. He also faces allegations that he passed bad checks at least two other local businesses. While Wheatley has allegedly been passing bad checks the last few weeks, some of his clients have been in court wondering who is supposed to represent them and whether they can recover funds they paid him. Depending on their financial situation, clients facing criminal charges could get a public defender assigned to their case. Those who don’t’ meet the requirements will need to hire a new attorney, and will need to do so as quickly as possible — as will any clients in civil cases, said attorney Scott Hall, president of the Sevier County Bar Association. “It’s important that they have legal representation,” Hall said. “There are too many issues for a lay person to try to understand and grasp and try to manage properly.” He encouraged people to use the Yellow Pages or search the internet to find attorneys who specialize in the correct areas of law, and recommended they find two or three attorneys and talk to them about their situation and how they would handle it before making a selection, if possible. With that said, he cau-

public affairs specialist, said of the Pigeon Forge firemen. “They told me I had the chance to come and talk to a captive audience, which was great. You could definitely tell the mood before (they texted and drove) was different than after. No one was somber, but you could tell it had affected them. We told them, ‘If you learned anything from this, tell your friends.’” Milani also wants drivers to know that it’s not just

the agency, new ones confront him. In this lunchtime gathering, one man raises his hand and asks Newman how much money the agency sends out of the area. Newman insists all the contributed cash stays in the county, funding either agencies here or ones in Knoxville that provide services to local residents. Those organizations include programs for youth, disease-battling groups, help for people with special needs, local volunteer fire departments and activities to care for senior citizens. Newman isn’t the only one making the pitch. He’s joined by an army of supporters who are more than willing to stand up and give their own testimonies about why they support the agency. “We’ve had a rough few years, but we’re going to build it back up,” Honorary Campaign Chair Danny DeVaney says, echoing

tioned that people shouldn’t just stay out of court if they have a motion or trial date before they can hire a new attorney. The judges and other attorneys are aware of Wheatley’s situation and will try to make adjustments, he said, but the clients still need to be present for their court dates. As for how to recover their money, if Wheatley is unable to reimburse them that might require hiring a separate attorney or filing a lawsuit for breach of contract, he said. The Tennessee Lawyers’ Fund for Client Protection could be another resource for clients, depending on the outcome of Wheatley’s situation. The fund was created by the Tennessee Supreme Court and is maintained through dues paid by attorneys in the state. It is administered through a board composed of attorneys and other parties. It can be reached by calling (615) 741-3097 or mailing information to 511 Union St., Ste. 630; Nashville, TN. 37219. Clients can also file complaints with the Board of Professional Responsibility, which investigates complaints by clients concerning violations of the Code of Professional Responsibility for attorneys licensed to practice in the state. Complaints can be sent by mail to 10 Cadillac Drive, Suite 220 Bentwood, Tennessee 37027 or by calling (800) 486-5714. Information on filing a complaint, and a copy of a complaint form, can be obtained online at http:// FilingAComplaint.aspx The Tennessee Bar Association provides advice on finding attorneys, as well as on how to change attorneys and what to do if you’re unhappy with an attorney, online at http://www.tba. org/LawBytes/findalawyer. html. n

texting that provides a distraction — and it’s not just teenagers committing the offense. “It’s not one distraction and it’s not one age group. It may not even have anything to do with technology.” “Distracted driving takes away your edge,” Lovitt said. “We plan on doing this (activity) again with the same basic layout, but hopefully more interesting with more obstacles for the kids.

Newman’s comments. “We’re going to help even more people this year, and then more and more from now on. There are so many people in this community who really need our help. We’re going to give it to them.” As bowls of banana pudding and peach cobbler are delivered to the tables, Newman knows his time to pitch the group is running short. He finishes with one last plea. “We really need help,” he says. “If you or people you know can volunteer with us, give us more boots on the ground, we would really appreciate it. “Our dream is to see all of Sevier County investing in United Way because it’s our community. We can’t get there without help, though.” For more information on United Way, visit the Web site n

Poll: Tennesseans tolerant of Muslims

Wrongly convicted inmate is hoping for a settlement CROSSVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Former Tennessee death row inmate Paul House served more than two decades in prison before his murder conviction was dismissed over DNA tests that raised doubts about his guilt. Now House, 48, who lives with his mother and uses a wheelchair after developing multiple sclerosis in prison, may not get any money from the state that incarcerated him. He wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be alone. There are 23 states that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have laws allowing compensation for those wrongly convicted of crimes and released from prison. In Tennessee, House could get up to $1 million under state law, but he must be exonerated by the governor first. House is among 138 people on death row in the U.S. who had their convictions and sentences thrown out since 1973, according to the Death Penalty Information Center in Washington, which opposes capital punishment. In 17 of those cases, DNA testing played a substantial role in establishing reasonable doubt. Death penalty opponents say those who are compensated often donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t receive enough money, and social services supporting them in post-prison life fall short. Exonerees also can wait years to receive money and may lack income to tide them over. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be happy with a million, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not even close to what they should pay me,â&#x20AC;? House told The Associated Press in a recent interview at his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home in Crossville, about 100 miles east of Nashville. House has always maintained he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t kill Carolyn Muncey, whose raped and beaten body was found near her rural Union County home northeast of Knoxville in 1985. On parole for a Utah rape and new to the area, he was arrested just days later, convicted the next year of the murder and sentenced to death. However, the U.S. Supreme Court concluded in 2006 that jurors would have had reasonable doubt about Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s guilt if they had seen what DNA tests revealed in the late 1990s â&#x20AC;&#x201D; namely that semen found on Munceyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s clothing didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t match Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. In 2008, a federal judge ordered House get a new trial or be set free. Not viewed as a flight risk, House was released into his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s care that same year while prosecutors in Union County prepared to retry him. They later withdrew charges, however, and dropped retrial plans after more testing revealed Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s DNA was not on other key evidence. Houseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attorney Michael Pemberton said the state parole board is expected to recommend to Gov. Phil

Bredesen whether House should be exonerated. To get compensation in Tennessee, House must first be exonerated by the governor, and he canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t appeal the decision if denied exoneration, Pemberton said. A hearing date before the parole board has not yet been set. The stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Board of Claims would decide any compensation. Tennessee pays a maximum of $1 million for the entirety of a wrongful incarceration. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think it should be considerably more (than $1 million),â&#x20AC;? Pemberton said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have to deal within the context of the law in which it is written. Letâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s just be thankful Tennessee is not one of the states that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even have that.â&#x20AC;? Richard Dieter, executive director of the Death Penalty Information Center, said former inmates can file a civil lawsuit to try to get money if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re in a state that does not have any mechanism for compensation. If prisoners were wrongly convicted in federal court, compensation avenues are available at the federal level as well. Dieter said states that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offer the wrongly convicted any sort of compensation often have the attitude of â&#x20AC;&#x153;we did everything we could at the time,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Their approach or theory is that you may still be guilty. Their attitude sometimes is, â&#x20AC;&#x2122;We didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t make any mistakes.â&#x20AC;?â&#x20AC;&#x2122; Compensation amounts can vary greatly in states that do award the wrongly convicted, according to a 2009 report by the

Innocence Project, a New York legal center specializing in wrongful convictions. California has a maximum of $100 per day, or $36,500 per year, of wrongful incarceration. Florida provides $50,000 annually with a maximum of $2 million, the group reports. Mississippi allows $50,000 for each year of wrongful incarceration with a maximum of $500,000. Oklahoma provides $175,000 for the entirety of the wrongful conviction. In New York, whose Court of Claims decides the amount, there is no maximum amount. The report also notes the wrongly convicted can wait years to get paid and often lack means to support themselves, health insurance, transportation and a stable home. Dieter said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to settle on what is a fair amount but said Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s $1 million maximum isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t too much. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you think about it, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s about $40,000 a year for each year he served. Few people would accept that much for losing a year of their life,â&#x20AC;? Dieter said. House spends most of his days watching television in his motherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s modest home, nestled in the rolling green hills of East Tennessee. When itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not too hot, he enjoys going outside and looking at the trees and listening to birds. He says heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s gained about 30 pounds since leaving prison, thanks to his mother Joyceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cooking. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had major dental work to replace decayed or missing teeth.

DRESDEN (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A bronze statue honoring former Gov. Ned Ray McWherter will be unveiled today at 11 a.m. CDT in Dresden. The likeness will stand on the south lawn of the Weakley County Courthouse and its dedication comes on McWherterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 80th birthday.

Pictsweet recalls okra over label omission

BELLS, Tenn. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Tennessee food company is recalling eight lots of breaded okra because it contains milk not shown on the label. Pictsweet in Bells, Tenn., is calling back specific lots of 32-ounce breaded okra: Those beginning with the product codes 1400B, 1550B, 1660B, 1730B, 1870B, 2030B, 2350B and 2500B. The company initiated the recall after finding the dairy information was left out when packaging was redesigned. People who are allergic or severely sensitive to dairy products could risk allergic reaction if they consume the product. The company says no illnesses or allergic reactions have been reported to date.

Toilet paper tossed from plane at school

WESTWOOD, N.J. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Authorities say a man tossed wet toilet paper from a small plane onto a New Jersey athletic field, but his intent wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t nefarious: He was making a test run for a streamer drop at an upcoming high school football game. Westwood Police Chief Frank Regino told The Record of Woodland Park on Thursday that the pilot will be charged with violating a law that prohibits lowflying stunts over densely inhabited areas or public gatherings. Regino said the man was practicing for a planned flight Saturday to drop streamers in school colors before Westwood High Schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s football game.

MURFREESBORO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A new poll finds a majority of Tennesseans are not opposed to a mosque in Murfreesboro and would not oppose one near their homes, but a majority does oppose a planned mosque in New York City near ground zero. The telephone poll of 614 randomly selected Tennesseans aged 18 and over found that 42 percent neither support nor oppose the planned construction of an Islamic community center near Murfreesboro and 24 percent either â&#x20AC;&#x153;supportâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;strongly supportâ&#x20AC;? the centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s construction.

Rockslide closes road into ‘Cove’

A rockslide Thursday closed Laurel Creek Road, the main access in and out of Cades Cove in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The road was originally expected to be closed until about 6 p.m. Thursday, but park spokesman Bob Miller later revised that and said it would be closed until about noon today. Officials were still working late Thursday afternoon to clear the way, Miller said. The slide is about 2 1/2 miles east of the entrance into the cove. Rocks completely blocked one lane. However, both lanes are closed so equipment operators have room to remove the material. n

UT completes initial interviews KNOXVILLE (AP) — The chairman of a committee interviewing candidates to become the next president of the University of Tennessee said there were no front runners. But Jim Murphy also said West Virginia higher education official Brian Noland probably comes closest to committee members’ ideal candidate. Noland, who was interviewed on Wednesday, lobbies the Legislature and works on state policy for 11 of West Virginia’s universities. He also was an

architect of Tennessee’s HOPE Scholarship program as a former associate executive director of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission. It was reported that search committee members said Noland’s biggest weakness was his lack of fundraising experience and his limited time working directly on a campus. Also interviewed Wednesday was Battelle Memorial Institute consultant Robert McGrath, who advocated securing more federal funding for



research at the university system, which includes campuses in Knoxville, Chattanooga and Martin; the Health Science Center in Memphis; state Institutes of Agriculture and Public Service; and the Space Institute in Tullahoma. McGrath said Tennesseans would increase their support for the university once they saw that research beginning to be applied in businesses and industries. The other three finalists for the position were interviewed on Tuesday.


Farmer’s market event scheduled

The Gatlinburg Farmer’s Market Harvestfest will be Saturday from 8 a.m. to noon at Alamo Steakhouse parking lot on Highway 321. There will be demonstrations, music by Kirk Fleta, a costume contest for dogs, pumpkin painting, fall activities for children and local seasonal foods. Also included will be a loom weaving demonstration, local painter demonstration, prizes and local foods and products.

They are UT Institute of Agriculture Chancellor Joe DiPietro, Mercy Health Partners Vice President Jerry Askew and state Rep. Craig Fitzhugh — a Democrat from Ripley. Noland and DiPietro are the two finalists who were chosen unanimously by the committee. In discussing the candidates on Wednesday, the group praised DiPietro, whom most said they had worked with, and said he would be a capable leader who understood the issues facing the university.

Court records in Los Angeles show the “Beautiful” singer filed Thursday Aguilera to end her nearly five-year marriage to music executive Jordan Bratman. The 29-year-old singer cited irreconcilable differences for the breakup. She is seeking joint custody of the couple’s 2-yearold son.

Nation was built by immigrants Illegal immigration has become an issue, perhaps briefly, in the California gubernatorial election because it turns out the Republican candidate employed a Mexican lady as a nanny-housekeeper for nine years. Then, going into politics, Meg Whitman fired Nicandra Diaz Santillan. Ms. Diaz put it this way: “She threw me away like a piece of garbage.” Ms. Whitman, who has been saying employers should be punished for hiring the undocumented, says she never knew Ms. Diaz had no papers. There can’t be many Californians who believe Whitman. Nine years in your house? During that time, said Whitman, Diaz was like a member of the family. Right! These are two things you need to remember about illegal immigration in the Golden State: — Even in hard times, Californians, especially Southern Californians, are the only middle- and upper-middle-class Americans with servants. Housekeepers, nannies, gardeners, cooks, drivers. And then there are contractors, plumbers, housepainters and mechanics, willing to work for a fraction of what “real Americans” get for the same jobs. — The “legals” and “illegals” from Mexico, Central America and the Philippines are related. They are truly family. A threat to an undocumented Mexican is a threat to his lawabiding sister or cousin, who is an American citizen with voting rights. Illegal immigration is obviously becoming an issue in many parts of the country. But those days are long gone in California. The debate here is over law-abiding immigrants, documented or undocumented. (Criminals, particularly those in the drug trade, are another story.) There are an estimated 3 million undocumented workers in the state, most of them decent people with a work ethic that would put the hardest working old Protestants to shame. Californians, except possibly Whitman, know exactly what is going on and are generally comfortable or at least accepting that this is the way of life in 21st-century California. The economy here would collapse without immigration. The problem, if it is a problem, has no political solution because it is not a political problem. The problem is economic. A rich country, the United States, shares a long border with a relatively poor country, Mexico, which borders even poorer countries in Central America. As long as illegal border-crossers can make more money here, they will come. Fences and guards cannot stop them all. Much of the money they make here is sent back to their villages and cities in their home countries. You could say illegal immigration is actually a form of foreign aid. So, at best, Meg Whitman and Nickie Diaz and millions of other Californians were living different versions of the California Dream. At worst, Whitman is not a nice lady. Diaz said she is owed back pay and was sometimes forced to work around the clock. There may have been some of that; illegals are routinely exploited but don’t call the cops. And the undocumented and documented workers here are as diverse as any other group in America. Some are seasonal farm workers who want to go back to Mexico or farther south after the picking season. Some, with undocumented parents, were born here, are American citizens, going to school at a state college, UCLA or USC. The test of whether multi-ethnic, comfortably hypocritical California is a stable and sustainable way of life is what people do as their servants grow old. It is the idea of throwing out Nickie Diaz that upsets many Californians, Anglos and Hispanics alike. Most people I know here realize early on that the people serving them so well have to be rewarded in decent and civilized ways. There comes a day when solid citizens begin to work hard to get documentation for their “illegal” employees. There is good reason for this: When retirement comes they want their workers covered by Social Security and Medicare. Many go beyond that and, if they can afford it, set up what amounts to buyouts or pension plans for the people who have been “members of the family” for 30 or 40 years. I don’t know how this will all end, but I would bet that as California goes, so goes the nation. We were built by immigrants and most of them still like what they find here in the United States. — Richard Reeves, a presidential scholar and expert on six presidents, is the author of several books, including profiles of Richard Nixon and John Kennedy.

Paper roses Newspaper carriers deserve bouquets for jobs well done The next time you see the person who delivers the newspaper to your home, be sure to give them a big smile, a pat on the back and a hardy thank-you. Last Saturday, you see, was “National Newspaper Carriers Day,” and it’s better late than never to salute these under-appreciated workers. To borrow an unofficial motto from postal workers, “neither rain, nor sleet, nor gloom of night” shall keep these newspaper carriers from their appointed rounds. In Sevier County, those who deliver The Mountain Press face extreme heat during the summer; extreme cold often coupled with ice or snow during the winter; and pockets that are prone to flooding after hard rains. Wears Valley, Cosby and English Mountain are particularly difficult during icy weather but, as Mountain Press Circulation Director Will Sing points out, anywhere in Sevier County

can be difficult because this is not a flat area. There are hills, steep inclines and treacherous roads from Kodak and Seymour to Gatlinburg and Pittman Center. Consider this: These folks rarely get a day off. They work seven days a week, 52 weeks a year, 365 days a year. They don’t take off on Thanksgiving, Christmas, birthdays or anniversaries. They don’t get a paid vacation, don’t go to the beach for a long weekend. Most haven’t had a day off in years. They get their newspapers each day between 10:30 p.m. and 2:30 a.m. and set out to every nook and cranny. Our carriers drive about 1,800 miles per day and more than 12,000 per week to get you the newspaper. The shortest Mountain Press route is 22 miles up and down the streets of downtown Sevierville. One of our carriers drives between

four miles and six miles roundtrip just to deliver one paper to a customer — continuing that service after others in that area no longer had subscriptions. Another was hospitalized by his family one afternoon, but he checked himself out later in the day to deliver his route. Most of the carriers these days put the newspapers in tubes at the end of driveways or throw them into folks’ yards, but they will go out of their way to get out of their vehicles and carry it to the porch or door if a person is disabled. Service is always first. Joe Lafollette has carried The Mountain Press for nearly 30 years. Tommy Arwood has delivered the paper for more than 20, and eight other carriers for more than 10 years. That’s day after day, week after week, year after year in sometimes difficult conditions. That’s dedication. So, the next time you see your carrier, don’t forget to say thanks.

Public forum New Center community lost wonderful asset due to fire

Editor: The New Center area lost a very valuable asset to our community Tuesday morning. I’m speaking of the fire that razed Clint’s Restaurant and the Homes R’ Us realty office.

Clint’s was a favorite place to eat among our family members. I can’t count the number of family celebrations that we had there. My husband and I, being empty nesters, would often have a lunch date there. Many times I would go by there just to pick up slices of the wonderful cakes that Elaine made. My husband and I have known Clint

and Elaine for a long time and they are great people. All of Sevier County needs to get behind this wonderful couple and offer our assistance in whatever way we can to help them rebuild. Clint and Elaine: We love you and we are sorry for your loss. Rebecca Thomas New Center

Bears’ final regular season home game is tonight By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — With an eye on a spot at the TSSAA playoffs, the Sevier County Smoky Bears play tonight for the final time in front of their home crowd at Burchfield Stadium. The Smoky Bears (5-2, 3-1 in 2-AAA) will face the Cherokee Chiefs (3-4, 1-3 in 2-AAA) in hopes of continuing their three-game IMAC winning streak to remain in the conference’s second playoff slot. The Purple and White defense has SCHS linebacker/running back Brad Mason

been especially stingy since the team suffered a 28-14 loss to Dobyns-Bennett on Sept. 10. In the three games since, Sevier County has pitched one shutout and allowed an average of just over six points per game. Defensive linemen Jake Reppert, Ronnie Homerding, Thomas Hamilton and John Berry have led the way for the defense, while the linebackers have cleaned up almost all of the leftovers. “We want our defense to be unrelenting,” SCHS coach Steve Brewer said following the team’s 35-0 win over Seymour. “And I think that describes them right now, I think if they can just

keep that up for the next 12 quarters we’ll be in every ball game we play.” In fact, coach Brewer pointed out the lack of action for the Sevier County secondary in recent weeks thanks to the gusto of the team’s front seven. In the meantime the Smoky Bears offense has begun to click, scoring over 36 per contest. Using several options at receiver, including primary target Bryant Gilson, Sevier County’s Danny Chastain has begun to pass more and scramble less. But Chastian did scramble one play too See BEARS, Page A10


Rematch of last year’s playoff loss gives G-P shot at redemption By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer GATLINBURG — The Gatlinburg-Pittman Highlanders’ mettle will be tested again tonight. Just a week after hosting District 3-AA rival Fulton Falcons for a 22-14 loss that helped the football Highlanders regain some face after an early season 52-14 Tye Marshall embarrassment against the 3-AA Gibbs Eagles, the Blueand-Gold team will hit the road tonight for match-up at 3-AA rival Austin-East Roadrunners, who dealt G-P a 64-0 season-ending playoff loss last November. That’s 64-0 in case you’ve forgotten, which no one on the Highlanders football team has done. “We’ve kindly had that up on our board all week, 64-0,” said 39th-year G-P Ron Durbin head football coach Benny Hammonds, moments before Thursday’s practice began. “We know what the score was last year. “I don’t know if we can use that as motivation, but for a game like this, we need as much motivation and as much gas in our tank and as much desire and want-to and hustle, and hopefully we play as hard as we possibly Walter Barber can, because that’s what it’s going to take to beat them.” Beat them? That’s something G-P has never done against A-E. In fact, the three times the programs have met since 1987, the Highlanders are 0-3 and lost those games by a combined 91-15 margin. So does G-P actually believe it can come out with a big W tonight, which would be the second district win of Hunter Meier the season for the Blue and Gold. “We can’t be intimidated by them,” said Hammonds. “They’re a good team ..., so we’re going to have to be emotionally on top of our game and have a burning desire to perform as well as we can and hopefully get some momentum early in the game.” They’ll also need their big-play threats to come up big, especially with the continued absence of injured tight end Ryan Taylor, along with Turner Merritt, Terry Phillips and Spencer Brien. G-P senior QB Tye Marshall continues to put up big numbers with limited opportunities. Through seven games, he’s completed 43-of-73 passes for 726 yards with 22 touchdown passes against just three interceptions. Despite throwing the ball just 10 times per game, Marshall is averaging over 100 yards passing per contest and his stats translate to an astounding 233.7 NCAA quarterback rating. Senior receiver Ron Durbin has been Marshall’s favorite target with 314 yards on 22 catches with nine TD receptions. Senior running back Walter Barber continues to lead the offense with 726 rushing yards on just 83 carries for an 8.75-yard average with 13 rushing scores. And junior Hunter Meier has been a tackling machine for the Blue and Gold this year with 64 stops, 16 more than the second-leading tackler on the team.

Ole Miss tabs black bear new mascot Bear will replace controversial Colonel Reb By SHELIA BYRD and DAVID BRANDT Associated Press Writers OXFORD, Miss. — The new mascot of the University of Mississippi Rebels will be a black bear, officially replacing the goateed Southern gentleman “Colonel Reb” who was banished from the sidelines almost seven years ago. Thursday’s unveiling of the “Rebel Black Bear” is the latest move in the school’s effort to distance itself from symbols of the old South. The announcement came after a campuswide vote in February and months of polling. The bear beat out two other finalists, the Rebel Land Shark and something called the

“I think the fans of Ole Miss still want Colonel Reb. We have a petition with 3,500 signatures of “Hotty Toddy,” an attempt students who still want Colonel Reb as their masto personify the school cot and that’s the way it should be.” cheer. The bear received 62 percent of the vote in the final poll. “I know there was a lot of people emotionally invested in Colonel Reb and everybody might not completely agree with the bear, but I think everyone can be proud of how our students went about the process,” said Sparky Reardon, the university’s dean of students. Margaret Ann Porter, a co-chairman of the student mascot selection committee, said the bear was recommended because it had a Mississippi connection, would appeal to children and would be unique to the Southeastern Conference. Ty New, the other committee chairman, said

Brian Ferguson, 2007 Ole Miss graduate and member of the Colonel Reb Foundation

everyone in the university’s community — including faculty, students, alumni and season ticketholders — had a voice in the selection. “The fact that we were completely transparent through the process makes this a credible choice,” New said in a news release. That doesn’t mean there wasn’t griping along the way. In 1997, Ole Miss ended the waving of Confederate flags at sporting events. Last year, the band stopped playing the fight song, “From Dixie With Love,” to discourage

the fan chant, “The South will rise again.” And some of the colonel’s faithful sought to derail the search for a new mascot by staging protests earlier this year and in the last few weeks by gathering signatures to make Colonel Reb one of the choices. “I think it’s hypocrisy. I think the fans of Ole Miss still want Colonel Reb. We have a petition with 3,500 signatures of students who still want Colonel Reb as their mascot and that’s the way it should See OLE MISS, Page A9


Seymour Eagles hope to break scoreless streak against south Knox rival Cherokees By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor

Seymour quarterback Dustin Fain

SEYMOUR — What better time to snap out of a funk than at Homecoming? That’s just what the Seymour Eagles will be looking to do tonight as they face IMAC and down-the-road rival South-Doyle. “(The players) are very excited about it,” Seymour head coach Jim Moore said about the game. “Most of the kids know each other, and a

lot of them have played baseball and football and everything down at the little league park. “It’s never been a big rivalry, generally because we’ve never played each other that much before. But now, since it’s a district game, I’m sure it’s going to develop into one.” Last year the Eagles trounced the Cherokees 35-0, but this is a different Eagles team — one that hasn’t scored in 14 quarters. And they’re playing a team that just broke

a 17-game losing streak with a win over Cocke County. “They won last week, and they’ve been the media darlings for the whole week — you can’t turn on the TV or the radio or open a newspaper without seeing or listening to South-Doyle,” Moore said. “It ought to be a good game.” Seymour showed some skill last week against Morristown East, despite losing 7-0.

Two local squads should earn IMAC victories tonight Three home games and a forecast for clear weather means that local football fans will flock out to support the Bears, Tigers and Eagles tonight. Tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s contest is the last home game for the Smoky Bears and the next-to-last home game for Seymour. Pigeon Forge, however, will have two more games to perform in front of a home crowd. Without further ado, hereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s an explanation for my picks in tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high school football action:

Cogdill and Bubba Floyd, Sevier County should have an easy way to go â&#x20AC;&#x201D; especially if QB Danny Chastain and his wide receivers are clicking on top of that. Jasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pick: Sevier County 35, Cherokee 14

Seymour (1-6) hosts South-Doyle (1-6)

Sevier County (5-2) Seymour is about to hosts Cherokee (3-4) break out of their scor-

Jason Davis/The Mountain Press

Seymourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Cory Clark (1, above) makes a nice run at Morristown after making a catch on a Dustin Fain pass in the second half against the Hurricanes. Below Clark becomes a defender as a ball intended for him is off target and headed for a East defensive back. The pass was intercepted.

The Sevier CountyCherokee series is a relatively new one, without much historical record. In fact, I can only find one instance where the two teams have played â&#x20AC;&#x201D; last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 36-19 victory by the Smoky Bears. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chiefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; team appears somewhat more formidable than last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s group, sporting at 3-4 record at this point compared to last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2-5 mark heading into play with the Bears. Although that 3-4 record is somewhat misleading. Cherokeeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s victories have come over three teams that have combined for just four wins between them. In addition, the Chiefs were dealt a three TD defeat by a Morristown West team that the Bears handled without much trouble last month. Sevier County, in the meanwhile, is battling to stay ensconced in second place in the IMAC standings. Should the Bears handle Cherokee, SouthDoyle and Morristown East, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll guarantee themselves a berth in the TSSAA Playoffs. Last week Cherokee was stifled 48-7 against Jefferson County. In that game the Patriotsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense used their running attack to go for over 250 yards on the ground while limiting Cherokee to just 13 yards on 16 carries. With Sevier Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defensive line, led by Jake Reppert, Ronnie Homerding, Thomas Hamilton and John Berry, comined with SCHS runners Dakota

ing drought, and you can take that to the bank. South-Doyle hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shut out anyone since the 2007 season, and hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t shutout anyone not named Gibbs or Heritage in the 21st Century. Last week the Cherokees broke their 17-game losing streak, beating Cocke County 30-14. Still, South-Doyle is giving up 33 points per game this season, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a great time for the Seymour Eagles offense to finally come together for a big performance. I think the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense, which shows their mettle last week at Morristown East, will limit South-Doyle to minimal offense, while the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offensive weapons will find holes in the S-D defense most of the night. Jasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pick: Seymour 24, South-Doyle 7

Pigeon Forge (3-4) hosts Union (1-6)

Forge offensive coaches salivating. With Pigeon Forgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s defense playing fairly well of late, and the offense gridning out the rushing yards, I think the Tigers will control the ever-important time of possession battle and slug out a big win to move to .500 on the season. Jasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pick: Pigeon Forge 28, Union 21

Gatlinburg-Pittman (5-2) travels to Austin-East (4-3)

The Roadrunners have been the proverbial thorn in the side of GatlinburgPittman since the two teams first played in 1987. Since then Austin-East has run up a 5-0 record against the Highlanders, including two wins last year by a combined score of 78-7. While the Highlanders hung in with the Roadrunners 14-7 early last season, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the 64-0 rout in the playoffs that will stick in the minds of most people familiar with the series. While Austin-East seems to be a different team than last year, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve still had some good performances this year, including wins over Fulton, Brainerd, Carter and Union. The teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three losses were all of the narrow variety, just losing to Knox Catholic, Ooltewah and Morristown West. While I can imagine the Highlanders pulling off the upset in Knoxville, I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t bet on it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t in good conscience pick them to win â&#x20AC;&#x201D; although a win would be huge for the Blue and Gold nation.

Pigeon Forge holds a 6-3 all-time series lead over the Patriots, and I fully expect that trend to Jasonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Pick: Austin-East continue. 29, Gatlinburg-Pittman But the task wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be 20 easy for the Tigers, as Union has shown a propensity for offense, averaging 20 points per game despite their tough-luck record. Union also scored an upset win over districtrival Carter earlier this season 36-28, so they can be a dangerous opponent. Still, the Pats are giving up a whopping 34 points per game, something that get the full story everyday! should have the Pigeon

Sevier Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Jessica Dixon puts up a shot against G-P earlier this season at Sevier County High School. Trojans secured a region tournament berth and a spot in the district championship game Thursday night, and Friday if necessary. The Bearettes dropped down to the loserâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s bracket semi-final contest against Morristown East set for Thursday night. The winner of that contest earns a region tournament berth and advances to play for the district tournament title against West in late Thursday night action. West needs to be defeated twice in order

to miss out on the tournament championship, while needing just one win over either SCHS or East to claim the district title. In Wednesday action against West, Caroline Miller led the Bearettes with 18 blocks, 11 points and eight kills. Hailey Tackett added 15 digs and 10 kills, Sydney Duncan had 10 points and 10 blocks, Kaycee Dixon had 19 assists and Jessica Dixon had 11 digs in the loss.

This season the Chiefsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; record looks a little better than last year at 3-4, but the teamâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s three wins have come against teams that have combined for just four wins. Prior to tonightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s game, the Sevier County High School Quarterback Club will be hosting a benefit dinner before Friday nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s home football game

In addition, the Sevier County Booster Club will be accepting non-perishable food items and monetary donations at all gate entrances. All items will be donated to the local food bank.

Their defense played sharp, limiting Eastâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s potent offense. Our defense played extremely well last week. They shutdown what East does best. It was a very good defensive effort. Senior linebacker Colton Flynn played an incredible game â&#x20AC;&#x201D; perhaps the defensive game of the year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; recording a monster stat line: 26 tackles and two sacks.

Friday, October 15, 2010 â&#x2014;&#x2020; The Mountain Press TENNESSEE VOLUNTEERS FOOTBALL

Vols using off week to try and improve With no game looming Saturday, the Tennessee football team put in another solid day of practice Wednesday at Haslam Field. The Vols worked on finetuning all facets of their performance before turning attention Thursday to their Oct. 23 opponent, No. 8 Alabama. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We got a little better and thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what our objective was,â&#x20AC;? head coach Derek Dooley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think every player got a little better in some fashion and tomorrow weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll turn our attention to our next opponent and start working on them a little bit.â&#x20AC;? The Vols have had a motivated mentality despite not preparing for a Saturday game for the first time since the final week of August. With the amount of youth UT has, its only focus is to get better. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was good,â&#x20AC;? Dooley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;To get what we got out of them two days on an open week, open dates are tough on every team. Who wants to practice when you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t play? Not many guys. I think it was a little easier for our team because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re young and they know they need a lot of work, so the



attitude was great.â&#x20AC;?

Seniors stand out While Dooley spoke on the impact of the freshmen classâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; spirit following Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s practice, he emphasized the importance of senior leadership Wednesday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re critical,â&#x20AC;? Dooley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We need the seniors. We have some good players in the senior class. Some of them are playing really well and some of them need to play a little better. They all worked hard this week. They were great (for the) open date. They were upbeat and we need them to be.â&#x20AC;?

Week by Week With 16 true freshmen that have seen action for the Vols this season, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to point to the future with a class that has shown flashes of potential. Dooley maintains that he is focused on putting the players on the field that give the Vols their best chance to win while taking it game-by-game. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to go out and try to win the next game,â&#x20AC;? Dooley said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not into this big-picture thinking that everybody else is. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not here to win the championship. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re here to win the next game.

National Football League

Elway invests $15M with alleged Ponzi schemer DENVER (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Former Denver Broncos quarterback John Elway and his business partner gave $15 million to a hedge-fund manager now accused of running a Ponzi scheme. The Denver Post reported Thursday that Elway and Mitchell Pierce filed a motion saying they wired the money to Sean Michael Mueller in March. They said Mueller agreed to hold the money in trust until they

agreed on where it would be invested. A state investigator says 65 people invested $71 million with Muellerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s company over 10 years and it only had $9.5 million in assets in April and $45 million in liabilities. Elwayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s filing asks that the court put their claims ahead of others so they can collect their money first. His lawyer declined to comment.

Gibson, who did not start because of a strained left knee, limped around the bases as the Dodgers won one of the most dramatic games in series history. 1997 — The Cleveland Indians survived another brilliant effort by Mike Mussina and claimed their second pennant in three years, defeating the Baltimore Orioles 1-0 on an 11th-inning homer by Tony Fernandez to win the AL championship series 4-2. 2003 — The Florida Marlins took their third game in a row, winning the NLCS with a 9-6 victory over Chicago in Game 7. Florida became just the ninth team to overcome a 3-1 deficit in a best-of-seven series. 2007 — With their 21st win in 22 games, the Colorado Rockies beat the Arizona Diamondbacks 6-4 to sweep the NL championship series and advance to the World Series for the first time in franchise history. The wildcard Rockies joined the 1976 Cincinnati Reds as the only teams to start a postseason with seven straight wins. Matt Holliday’s three-run homer highlighted a six-run fourth inning for Colorado. 2008 — Jimmy Rollins homered in the first inning, Cole Hamels pitched his third gem of the playoffs and the Philadelphia Phillies beat the bumbling Los Angeles Dodgers 5-1 to win the NL championship series 4-1 for their first pennant since 1993.

Pentagonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in limbo on gays-military court order By ROBERT BURNS AP National Security Writer

Associated Press

Darius Rucker has spent the last few years reinventing himself as a country star. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had a platinum debut, No. 1 hits and his follow-up, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Charleston, SC 1966,â&#x20AC;? debuted this week with high expectations.

After 25 years with Hootie, Darius Rucker turns country By CHRIS TALBOTT AP Entertainment Writer NASHVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Darius Rucker has spent the last few years reinventing himself as a country star. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s had a platinum debut, No. 1 hits and his follow-up, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Charleston, SC 1966,â&#x20AC;? debuted this week with high expectations. Rucker hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forgotten what made him one of musicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most bankable voices, though. You know, a certain laid-back rock band that turned out to be the melodic antidote to grunge and one of the biggest acts of the 1990s. Hootie & the Blowfish celebrates its 25th anniversary this year, and Rucker says the band will record another album and tour at some point. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This country thing is what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing,â&#x20AC;? Rucker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is my career change. This is what Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m doing â&#x20AC;&#x2122;til I retire. But I know for a fact that â&#x20AC;&#x201D; I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to put a time on it â&#x20AC;&#x201D; but soon thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be another Hootie record, another Hootie tour because I love the guys and I think we will always be a band.â&#x20AC;? Rucker said the band never really broke up â&#x20AC;&#x201D; though they havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t recorded together since releasing â&#x20AC;&#x153;Looking For Luckyâ&#x20AC;? in 2005. They play together occasionally, including four dates this year, and bandmates see each other often. Rucker says the chemistry that helped them sell more than 25 million records remains strong. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We could get together right now and have an album for you in three months,â&#x20AC;? Rucker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re all writing all the time. I was sitting down writing songs (recently) and I wrote a country song and then a song came out that sounded like Hootie, so I saved it for that.â&#x20AC;?

Hootie guitarist Mark Bryan says he has an albumâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s worth of songs alone. But with Ruckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s new album fresh on the streets, he knows it will be some time until the singer is free of his country commitments to record with the band: â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m probably not looking at another Hootie album for another year or two at the very least so I might as well make another album.â&#x20AC;? Ruckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solo country turn has turned in to quite a run. His first country album, 2008â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;Learn To Liveâ&#x20AC;? spawned three No. 1 songs, sold about 1.5 million copies and earned him a Country Music Association Award for best new artist. Expectations are even higher for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Charleston.â&#x20AC;? Ruckerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second act as a country music star is no surprise to Bryan. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s been listening to his friend belt out country tunes since they met in 1985 when Bryan heard Rucker singing in the shower of their University of South Carolina dorm hall.

â&#x20AC;&#x153;The very first show Darius and I did together at Pappyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s with an acoustic guitar, we did â&#x20AC;&#x2122;Family Traditionâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; by Hank Williams Jr., which heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still doing in his solo country set,â&#x20AC;? Bryan said. After a few months, Rucker and Bryan decided to go for it and enlisted bassist Dean Felber and a drummer. Felber, who had played in a band with Bryan during high school, didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really want to join but he said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d fill in till they could find a permanent bassist. They played at Pappyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in February 1986, adding drummer Jim Sonefeld four years later after their first drummer quit to pursue a religious ministry following graduation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When we started this we said we wanted to be one of those bands that played for a long time,â&#x20AC;? Rucker said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s amazing 25 years after asking Dean to play with us, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still looking for a bass player and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re still in a band. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pretty awesome.â&#x20AC;?

WASHINGTON â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Some officers and service members say they are uncertain how to react while the law banning gays from serving openly in the military is in limbo. The Pentagon said Wednesday it had not issued written guidance on a judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s order throwing out the ban, and commanders in the field said they did not know how to proceed on sensitive questions like pursuing existing investigations against gay service members. The Obama administration is considering whether to appeal the judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling, issued Tuesday in California. Defense Secretary Robert Gates warned of â&#x20AC;&#x153;enormous consequencesâ&#x20AC;? for troops if the court order is allowed to stand, saying the decision on repeal of the law known as â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tellâ&#x20AC;? should be decided by Congress and not the courts. He has said he wants more time to prepare for a circumstance in which, for the first time, gay members of the military could declare their sexual orientation without fear of dismissal. The Justice Department worked into the night Wednesday on its response to the judgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling but gave no indication when there would be an announcement. Its first move may be to seek a stay, or temporary freeze, of the order. If that request is rejected, the department probably would turn to the federal appeals court in California. If the government does appeal, it would put the Obama administration in the position of continuing to defend a law it opposes. White House press secretary Robert Gibbs said time is running out for the ban on gays serving openly. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is a policy that is going to end,â&#x20AC;? he said. On Wednesday, Gates told reporters traveling with him in Europe that repeal of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tellâ&#x20AC;? law should be considered only after the Pentagon completes a study of the impact of lifting the ban, including an assessment of service membersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attitudes toward the change. The study is due Dec. 1. Allowing gays to serve openly â&#x20AC;&#x153;is an action that requires careful preparation and a lot of training,â&#x20AC;? Gates said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It has

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can I come out right now and be OK? And if I made a statement would it be held against me?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D;Officer â&#x20AC;&#x153;JD Smith,â&#x20AC;? an Air Force Academy graduate

enormous consequences for our troops.â&#x20AC;? In Tuesdayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ruling, U.S. District Judge Virginia Phillips in Riverside, Calif., ordered the military â&#x20AC;&#x153;immediately to suspend and discontinue any investigationâ&#x20AC;? or other proceeding to dismiss gay service members. The 1993 â&#x20AC;&#x153;donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t ask, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tellâ&#x20AC;? law says gays may serve in the military but only if they keep secret their sexual orientation. Phillips wrote that the law â&#x20AC;&#x153;infringes the fundamental rightsâ&#x20AC;? of current and prospective service members. Gay rights advocates cautioned gay service members to avoid revealing their sexuality for fear that the Phillips ruling could be tossed out on appeal and they would be left open to being discharged. Defense Department officials would not say what was happening to current discharge cases, or even confirm how many pending cases there might be. A Pentagon spokesman, Col. David Lapan, said no written guidance had been issued to commanders on how to deal with the court order. An Air Force officer and co-founder of a gay service member support group called OutServe said he will continue using a pseudonym out of concern that he still could be discharged. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can I come out right now and be OK? And if I made a statement would it be held against me?â&#x20AC;? asked the officer, who calls himself JD Smith and said he is an Air Force Academy graduate. He said service members are hoping the Pentagon will clarify the meaning of the court ruling. Warren Arbury of Savannah, Ga., said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d love to re-enlist in the Army two years after being discharged in the middle of a tour in Iraq. But heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s being cautious and patient. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s still way too soon,â&#x20AC;? said 28-year-old Arbury, now a university student. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I was to hear news that automatically everything would be reinstated, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d be the first one in the door.â&#x20AC;?

Chile’s textbook mine rescue brings global respect By FRANK BAJAK Associated Press Writer SAN JOSE MINE, Chile — Chile’s 33 rescued miners posed with the president and were poked by doctors on Thursday, itching to reunite with families and sleep in their own beds for the first time since a cave-in nearly killed them on Aug. 5. Relatives were organizing welcome-home parties and trying to hold off an onslaught of demands by those seeking to share in the glory of the amazing rescue that entranced people around the world and set off horn-blowing celebrations across this South American nation. President Sebastian Pinera posed with the miners, most of whom were wearing bathrobes and slippers, for a group photo, and then celebrated the rescue as an achievement that will bring Chile a new level of respect around the world. The miners and the country will never be the same, Pinera said. “They have experienced a new life, a rebirth,” he said, and so has Chile: “We aren’t the same that we were before the collapse on Aug. 5. Today Chile is a country much more unified, stronger and much more respected and loved in the entire world.” The billionaire businessman-turned-politician also promised “radical” changes and tougher safety laws to improve how businesses treat their workers. “Never again in our country will we permit people to work in conditions so unsafe and inhuman as they worked in the San Jose Mine, and in many other places in our country,” said Pinera, who took office in

Taliban may be amenable to talks KABUL, Afghanistan (AP) — A former Afghan president who heads a new peace council said Thursday that he’s convinced the Taliban are ready to negotiate peace. Burhanuddin Rabbani told reporters in Kabul the Taliban have not completely rejected the idea of negotiating a nonmilitary resolution of the war. “They have some conditions to start the negotiations process. It gives us hope that they want to talk and negotiate,” Rabbani said. “We are taking our first steps,” he said. “I believe there are people among the Taliban that have a message that they want to talk. They are ready.” The Afghan government has acknowledged that it has been involved in reconciliation talks with the Taliban, but discussions between the two sides have been described as mostly informal and indirect message exchanges relying on mediators. U.S. Secretary of Defense Robert Gates said any reconciliation between the Afghan government and the Taliban insurgents has to be led by Afghans. But he told a press conference in Brussels Thursday that the U.S. is offering advice and has kept an ear on the initial talks. Gates said reconciliation efforts may not bear fruit anytime soon, but he says the effort is worth making. NATO SecretaryGeneral Anders Fogh Rasmussen said that the military alliance is helping the Taliban meet with the Afghan government. Rasmussen said that when there are practical ways that the alliance can help, it will.

Chile’s President Sebastian Pinera, right, greets miner Juan Carlos Aguilar after he was rescued from the collapsed San Jose gold and copper mine where he had been trapped with 32 other miners for over two months near Copiapo, Chile. March as Chile’s first elected right-wing president in a half-century. Dr. Jorge Montes, deputy director of the Copiapo Regional Hospital, said that some miners will be able to leave the hospital later Thursday despite the physical and emotional impact of 69 days trapped underground. “Not a single miner has been in a state of shock,” he said, and all should be able to leave soon once they go through a battery of medical and psychological exams. All the miners are remain tense, he said, which is only natural given what they’ve been through, and what they face as they begin their new lives. “They’ve all been placed under a high degree of stress, most have put up with it in a very notable

way. Some have some kind of minor complications, but nothing to worry about.” After weeks of fear, desperation and finally hope, the miners were pulled out one by one in a capsule that carried them through a narrow tube of solid rock — a dizzying 23-hour marathon of rescues. The men, their eyes hidden behind sunglasses to protect from the sun and glare of lights, emerged to tears and embraces from relatives, and cheers and patriotic chants, as tens of millions of people watched on television around the world to see a joyful end to the longest known ordeal of men trapped underground. They were restless to begin their new life, but for many, that life may be incomprehensible at first. Honors and offers of jobs and even vacations poured

in from around the world for men who walked into a mine on Aug. 5 as workers doing a dirty job to support their children or buy a house. They were lifted out weeks later to find themselves international symbols of perseverance — as well as icons of patriotism at home. Spain’s Real Madrid football team invited the 33 to attend a game in their stadium. Chile’s football federation said it would offer a job with its youth teams to Franklin Lobos, a former national team player who had later found himself driving a taxi to make ends meet before he was caught in the mine collapse. It also said it was organizing a “Copa 33” tournament in their honor. The internationally popular Spanish language variety show “Sabado Gigante”

announced it would dedicate a show to “The 33” and invited fans to suggest questions for them. And a Greek mining company offered to fly each one, with a companion, for a week’s vacation in the Mediterranean. Pinera, meanwhile, vowed that those responsible for the mine collapse “will not go unpunished. Those who are responsible will have to assume their responsibility.” The rescue will end up costing “somewhere between $10 (million) and $20 million,” a third covered by private donations with the rest coming from state-owned miner Codelco — the country’s largest company— and the government itself, Pinera said. Mining accounts for 40 percent of the Chilean state’s earnings and the rescue’s details were run by its operations manager, Andre Sougarett. The Aug. 5 collapse brought the 125-year-old San Jose mine’s checkered safety record into focus and put Chile’s top industry under close scrutiny. Many believe the collapse occurred because the mine was overworked and violated safety codes. The families of 27 of the 33 rescued miners have

sued its owners for negligence and compensatory damages. Also suing the San Esteban company is Gino Cortez, a 40-year-old miner who lost his left leg from the knee down a month before the accident as he was leaving the mine after his shift and a rock fell on him. He contends he was hurt because the mine was short on the metallic screens that protect miners from such collapses. After the collapse, Pinera fired top regulators and created a commission to investigate both the accident and the industry’s Sernageomin regulatory agency. Some action was swift: the agency shut down at least 18 small mines for safety violations. “The mine has been proven dangerous, but what’s worse are the mine owners who don’t offer any protection to men who work in mining,” said Patricio Aguilar, 60, of nearby Copiapo, during celebrations of the meticulously executed rescue. Advances in technology notwithstanding, mining remains a dangerous profession in the smaller mines here in northern Chile, which employ about 10,000 people.

Organizers of the Three Days for FIN event are, from left, Jane Taylor, Keith Donnelly and Buie Hancock. The event will be held Oct. 28-30 at Buie’s Landing in Gatlinburg. The event is a fundraiser for FIN, with donations of food and cash being accepted for the program.

A Novel Approach Author, artist join forces to help Friends in Need By GAIL CRUTCHFIELD Community Editor GATLINBURG ­— A local author and a well-known artisan are joining forces again this year to help raise funds and awareness for a church-based community outreach program. Keith Donnelly is releasing his third book in his Donald Youngblood series, and he and potter Buie Hancock are using the occasion to once again collect food and money for Friends In Need (FIN). The second Three Days for FIN event will be held Oct. 28-30 at Buie’s Landing. The event is a deliberate play on words to allude to Donnelly’s mystery series with titles that always include the number 3 followed by two words starting with the letter D. The first 3DD book was “Three Deuces Down,” and the second was “Three Days Dead.” This third book is “Three Devils Dancing,” and the Three Days for FIN will be the official launch for sales of the book. “My book will actually be ready at the end of next week, but I’m holding it until the FIN event so that will be the kickoff for the book,” said Donnelly, who is giving a portion of the proceeds from the sale of all three books to FIN. Those who come out to support FIN are asked to bring food donations (at least four cans or boxes) or a cash donation of at least $10. The big winner, of course, will be FIN. Jane Taylor, pastor of Gatlinburg’s First United Methodist Church, works with other churches and organizations in Sevier County to provide everything from food and shelter to counseling services to individuals and families dealing with crises. “The need is increasing really on a daily basis,” said Taylor. “We are giving out about 100 bags of food a week through our Bread of Life ministry, which is kind of the entry point for us to be introduced to folks who can be helped by FIN.” From that entry point, they can continue to provide assistance in all man-

ner of cases, including housing. The funds from last year’s Three Days for FIN enabled them to start a program for recovering addicts. “Last year we raised enough money through this event to open Oxford House for men, which is a halfway house for men who are coming out of rehab,” Taylor said. “It’s a self-sustaining project where that once they get in — you have to have the initial money up front to get in — but then they work and pay the rent.” For this year, FIN hopes to use the proceeds to start a mentoring program that will help people learn how to budget their money.

GATLINBURG — Though he is buried in the process of writing his fourth book in the Donald Youngblood mystery series, Keith Donnelly will be backspacing a bit to introduce the third. “Three Devils Dancing” will be introduced during the Three Days for FIN event planned Oct. 28-30 at Buie’s Landing in Gatlinburg. It is the follow-up to the first two books in the series, “Three Deuces Down” and “Three Days Dead.” Donnelly, who retired from the publishing industry to write fulltime, said he had the title for “Three Devils Submitted Dancing” The cover photobefore he graph on Keith worked out Donnelly’s third the plot for Donald Youngblood the book. mystery series “I never shows the knew how Sugarlands Nature Three Devils Trail. was going to work into it,” he said. “I had the title before I had any idea how it was going to play out. When I write, it unfolds in front of me.” He said that’s usually how it works out when he writes his books. “It’s like I’ve created this little world and if I don’t write about it, I don’t find out what happens. It just happens on the screen right in front of me and I look at it and say, ‘What is this?’ I can’t explain how weird it is.” Donnelly said this third book is darker than the previous two. It begins with the discovery of a dead body on the Sugarlands Nature Trail in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. The author said he chose that trail for a specific reason. “One of the characters in the book is in a motorized wheelchair, and so I picked that trail because he could be on the trail,” Donnelly said. A photograph of the trail serves as the art for the cover of the book. The devil turns up in a tattoo found on the body and makes other appearances throughout the book. “Actually, I did a little research on tattoos and, I don’t want to give away too much of the story, but this tattoo happens to be a transfer tattoo. The tattoo does play a significant role in the story.” Given his limited exposure, Donnelly said his books have been doing pretty well in regards to sales. “‘Three Deuces Down’ continues to sell because when people first discover me, usually they want to start with the first book,” Donnelly said. “I think the third book may be the best out of the three. The second book is a little better crafted (than the first) from my standpoint, because I learned so much going from book one to book two, but book three is darker. “I don’t want to give away too much of that, but there’s been a lot going on with our teenagers lately all across the country, and book three brings a little of that in.” He added that book four won’t be nearly as dark as book three and won’t start off where book three ended. “There’s going to be a little gap in between book three and book four,” he said. “In the other books, one led right into the other, so that’s different.” All three of Donnelly’s books will be available at the Three Days for FIN event planned for Oct. 28-30 at Buie’s Landing in Gatlinburg.

Stay committed to the task at hand Regardless of what your job may be, sometimes it is hard to stay committed to the task at hand. Whether you are a CEO, office manager or frontline worker â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a school superintendent, teacher or student â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a publisher, editor or reporter â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a mayor, sheriff or parent â&#x20AC;&#x201D; sometimes you may want to run away and hide. Sometimes you may begin to understand completely why people become hermits or recluses. Starting a business, career or job can be rather easy when compared to sustaining it. Keeping on keeping on can be downright hard, especially when things are not going well. Many of us are familiar with the quotes: â&#x20AC;&#x153;When the going gets tough, the tough get goingâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tough times never last, but tough people do.â&#x20AC;? But what can you do to breathe life into these quotes for you, right now, right where you are? Anna, who experienced culture shock when she moved with her mother and father from Italy (Rome) to South Carolina (Myrtle Beach) to open a restaurant, told me the last thing her â&#x20AC;&#x153;Papaâ&#x20AC;? said before he died and left her in charge was, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Anna, keep-aâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; daâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eye on daâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; business.â&#x20AC;? To adhere to his advice, Anna knew she had to set and work toward realistic, measurable goals. If she did not, she knew she could not cope with the challenge. She couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t allow daily mundane tasks to rob her of her vision. She discovered she had to be flexible and adaptable â&#x20AC;&#x201D; that time, technology, interests, perceptions and other variants may cause a need to alter some goals. But she knew that lack of determination or focus should never cause her to drift from her vision. She promised herself to do something every day to help her progress and gain a feeling of success. Anna said she would always keep her job and her life interesting and fun. She said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I get to where things are not interesting and fun, it

is my fault. If I become a party-pooper at work, home or anywhere, I am not going to blame someone else. I mean, after all, this is LIFE we are talking about â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and I am not going to let someone else control it. Anna went on to say it is much easier to stay committed to something when you have good people around you. She declared, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Again, life is too short. I make it a point to hire and keep good people. If people are slackers, sourpusses, complainers or blamers, they are out of here. Together, it is amazing what good people can accomplish. Apart, it is disgusting what negative people can mess up.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;And I am never afraid to ask for help,â&#x20AC;? Anna said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew when Papa turned things over to me I was going to need help. I have sought advice, kept some and used it, disregarded some, filed some for future reference. I am always looking at how we can expand in some way and give things a little twist in order to improve.â&#x20AC;? Anna said when things are going badly or she feels like she is not getting anywhere, she takes time to review her accomplishments. She said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;I keep a record â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a list, some photos, some clippings of things I have accomplished. This helps lift me up. It helps me keep a positive attitude, which goes further than anything else. It helps me treat each disappointment as an opportunity to learn and grow in order to do it better next time. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Š 2010 by Carl Mays, speaker and author whose mentoring site,, is based on his book and program, â&#x20AC;&#x153;A Strategy For Winning.â&#x20AC;?

UT professor offers parents information about bullying Submitted Report KNOXVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Florida father storms a school bus after hearing that his handicapped daughter was being bullied by classmates. A 15-year-old Massachusetts girl hangs herself after months of hallway and online tormenting from classmates. A 13-year-old Texas boy hangs himself in his familyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s barn after being stuck in a trash can because he was small. These stories, unfortunately, are just the tip of the iceberg. U.S. Bureau of Justice statistics say one in three children in grades 6-10 are either bullies or the victims of bullying. Professor David Dupper of the College of Social Work at the University of Tennessee, Knoxville, spent nearly 15 years working as a social worker in middle and high schools in Florida before his work in higher education. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s written two books, numerous book chapters and many papers on topics including school violence, bullying, school discipline and at-risk students. Dupper, also the father of three girls â&#x20AC;&#x201D; a recent college graduate, a college sophomore and a high school junior â&#x20AC;&#x201D; said parents and teachers must be proactive to prevent bullying and to intervene when their children are the victims of bullying. Here are five things parents and teachers need to know about bullying: Understand the difference between teasing and bullying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Teasing takes place between peers who are comparable in status,â&#x20AC;? Dupper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In bullying, someone has power over another individual because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re physically bigger or belong to a bigger group.â&#x20AC;? Bullying is often chronic. It occurs in places with little adult supervision, such as buses or bathrooms. Bullying tends to peak in the late-elementary and middle school years.â&#x20AC;? Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when parents really have to be tuned in and encourage their children to tell them if anything is going on,â&#x20AC;? Dupper said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Probe. Explore. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be afraid to talk to your kids. They probably wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

speak up first; they think they can handle it themselves, or theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re afraid of making things worse if they tell an adult.â&#x20AC;? Understand the difference between genders when it comes to bullying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Girls are usually emotionally bullied; boys get it both ways, physically and emotionally,â&#x20AC;? Dupper said. Girl bullies tend to gossip, make fun of their victims or exclude them from the group. Boy bullies verbally abuse, but often resort to physical assaults, too. While anyone can fall prey to a bully, kids most at risk are those who are loners or different in the way they dress, look or act. Teach kids the difference between standing up for themselves and dealing with a bully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Never expect a victim of bullying to deal with the bully themselves,â&#x20AC;? Dupper said. Parents and school officials must intervene. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The only way a child is going to feel safe saying something to an adult is to know that the adult will take the bullying situation seriously and protect them.â&#x20AC;? Be informed about â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and be an advocate for â&#x20AC;&#x201D; school policies and laws concerning bullying. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Bullying is peer child abuse,â&#x20AC;? Dupper said. Parents should find out if their school district has a specific policy against bullying and, if it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t, try to get one enacted. Parents also can encourage their childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s schools to mount anti-bullying campaigns with posters and discussions that provide examples of bullying behavior. Heightened awareness means â&#x20AC;&#x153;itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s much less likely a bully is going to get away with it,â&#x20AC;? he said. Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be a bully. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Kids model the behavior that they observe in their immediate environments and in the society at large. Kids learn by watching the behavior of adults. They can learn to intimidate and overpower others or they can learn to deal with others in respectful ways. The bottom line is â&#x20AC;&#x201D; adults need to model the behavior that they want kids to exhibit,â&#x20AC;? Dupper said.

Scenic byways in Tennessee among the best in the region Submitted Report NASHVILLE â&#x20AC;&#x201D; As people across the United States make plans for autumn road trips, the Tennessee Department of Transportation is reminding motorists that Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s award-winning Scenic Byways offer some of the best views in the South. Tennessee has five nationally designated scenic byways: Cherohala Skyway, East Tennessee Crossing, Natchez Trace Parkway, Woodlands Trace and Great River Road. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s scenic byways travel through some of the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most unique and beautiful locations,â&#x20AC;? said TDOT spokesman Joe Carpenter. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are pleased to partner with local communities and byways groups to give travelers the opportunity to explore Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s natural beauty through our five National Scenic Byways.â&#x20AC;? According to a new national survey from The Goodyear Tire and Rubber Co. on Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Byways, 70 percent of Americans are planning on taking at least one road trip this autumn. The Cherohala Skyway and East Tennessee Crossing offer views of the Appalachian Mountains. In Middle Tennessee, visitors can travel the Natchez Trace Parkway and take in the fall foliage and learn the history of this vital trail through the South or visit the Woodlands Trace which runs along a ridge of land known as the Land Between the Lakes and take in the views of Lake Barkley and Kentucky Lake. In west Tennessee, the Great River Road follows the Mississippi River as it travels along Tennesseeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s western border. The Great River Road in Tennessee was recently awarded

the Mississippi River Parkway Commission Pilotâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Award. The award is presented annually to one of the 10 Mississippi River states based on their accomplishments and work along the Mississippi River Corridor. John Sheahan, the Tennessee chairman to the MRPC Board of Directors and MRCT chairman emeritus, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;After working just under the radar for so many years, we are thrilled to

receive this great honor and Pilot Award from such a highly regarded organization like the MRPC. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very rewarding national achievement and we are sincerely grateful for their recognition of Tennessee and our work on the Mississippi River.â&#x20AC;?

â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we really want to do is provide some significant mentoring, one-on-one mentoring â&#x20AC;Ś hoping to offer some financial budgeting classes, things like that. Everybody, no matter how much money they make, needs to know the best way to manage to pay the bills.â&#x20AC;? The event raised $6,000 last year and brought in multiple truckloads of food. Taylor said theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve set a goal of $5,000 this year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;What we really need to do is hire a staff person to kind of overseeâ&#x20AC;? the mentoring program, Taylor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to do mentor training, bring somebody in who could train folks to be

Taylor agreed. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because it goes to such a good cause,â&#x20AC;? Taylor said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I was talking to somebody the other day in the community that we have a friendship with, and he said he thinks that this is going to be a much harder winter in terms of employment, housing needs and food needs.

the work we do more critical.â&#x20AC;? The event will be held in a vacant store front in Buieâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Landing.

Study up on good oral health for children Submitted Report


Paul and Kati Jane Murray of the Paul Murray Galleries presented Smoky Mountain Children’s Home with a contribution of $750. The Murrays, on the right, are pictured with Bob Maggard, left, director of operations at SMCH, and John Sweet, program director.

Paul Murray Galleries donates to Smoky Mountain Children’s Home Submitted Report Paul and Kati Jane Murray of the Paul Murray Galleries in Gatlinburg began an affiliation with The Church of God Smoky Mountain Children’s Home in Sevierville several months ago by giving permission to the home to use one of Murray’s images, “Hideaway,” as part of the home’s logo and 90th anniversary celebration. “It has been a wonderful and beneficial partnership,” according to John Sweet, the children’s home’s program director. During the Murrays’ fall art show at their Gatlinburg hallery, they presented the home with an additional contribution, and Sweet presented the Murrays with the home’s Eagle Award, the highest honor given to those who make a significant impact on the ministry through their support. During the presentation Sweet gave a list of children who had been given a chance at the home. These children had gone on to be

‘Tailgate for Teens’ event set Submitted Report SEVIERVILLE — The Department of Children’s Services will be conducting a “Tailgate for Teens” event to promote foster parenting from 1-6:30 p.m. Oct. 22 in the Home Depot parking lot (behind the Sevier County DCS office). Persons are encouraged to attend and wear their favorite team colors. The event is open to the community to raise awareness of Sevier County’s need for resource families, with specific focus on fostering teens. Sevier County resource parents, foster children in their care, and others in the community will be giving personal testimonies of success stories and even challenging experiences. The event is sponsored by Home Depot, New York Life and AmeriChoice. There will be food, the “Days Gone By” children’s game area, face painting, activity and community agency booths for all ages, child ID fingerprinting, giveaways and more.

With school routines firmly in place, year parents should be thinking about more than just school supplies and carpool. An unhealthy diet can result in painful tooth decay, disease and poor oral development. In fact, students miss more than 51 million school hours per year because of dental problems or related conditions. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends the following for parents: n Pack good lunches. Children need a balanced diet. Protein, vitamins and minerals, such as calcium and phosphorous, build strong teeth and help children’s mouths to fight tooth decay and gum disease. A diet high in certain kinds of carbohydrates may place a child at risk for tooth decay. n Schedule a pediatric dental visit. Preventive dentistry can result in less extensive —and less expensive — treatment for children as they grow and develop. Children’s first visit to the pediatric dentist should take place as soon as the first baby tooth appears and no

later than children’s first birthdays. Studies have found that children who have their first dental visit before age one have 40 percent lower dental costs in their first five years than children who do not. n Remember fluoride and flossing. Fluoride has been shown to reduce tooth decay by as much as 50 percent, and flossing prevents gum disease and tooth decay on the sides of the teeth. Teach your children to floss once a day and brush twice daily. n Take inventory of dental supplies. The academy recommends using only soft-bristled toothbrushes and suggests replacing the brush or brush head every three months. Purchase new toothbrushes sooner if bristles start fraying.

What is an ENERGY STAR Qualified Home? An ENERGY STAR Qualified home (as certified by a qualified rating professional) is at least 15 percent more energy efficient than a home built to the 2004 International Residential Code. These homes offer additional energy saving features and use a variety of energy efficient techniques - ENERGY STAR Qualified appliances and lighting, effective insulation, high performance low-e windows, tight construction and sealed ductwork. Now, Schaad is only building ENERGY STAR Qualified homes. These new homes meet, and often exceed, the ENERGY STAR efficiency standards.

What is a HERS rating? The Home Energy Rating System (HERS) measures the amount of energy a home consumes. Older homes typically use more energy. For instance, a home built 10 years ago often receives a HERS score of 150. An average new home built to code receives a HERS score of 100. The lower the HERS rating, the more energy efficient the home. ENERGY STAR Qualified homes require a minimum HERS rating of 85.

Advantages for a homeowner include: Lower energy bills are achieved through new energy efficient construction methods, building materials, equipment, appliances and lighting. Resale distinction is attained because the ENERGY STAR rating is documented proof of the homeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s superior efficiency compared to homes constructed only to meet building codes.

Savannah Glen in Sevierville NOW Schaad has new ENERGY STAR Qualified homes in Savannah Glen, a classic townhome community, ideally located in Sevierville. Open daily from 1 p.m. to 4 p.m., except Friday and Saturday. Contact Lynda Meeks, Sevierville Real Estate and Rentals, phone 865.429.0002 for more information.

Getting to know daughter’s boyfriend may be best way to avoid estrangement



Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: I have been fighting a lot with my 16-year-old daughter, “Rebecca.” It has escalated to the point where she moved into an apartment with her 19-year-old boyfriend, “Rick.” I am not comfortable with the age difference and have tried to talk to her, but she just won’t listen. I don’t know Rick very well, and I am worried about my daughter. Rebecca comes home only to ask for money, do laundry or get a few personal items. When I try talking to her during those times, she throws a tantrum and storms out. I saw a therapist about it, but that led nowhere. Taking away her car keys, phone and credit card has done nothing. What can I do? — Desperately Confused Mom Dear Mom: Is Rebecca considered a legal adult in your state? If not, you can report the situation to the police. It is a drastic step that may get her away from Rick, but it will likely estrange you completely. Your second option is to get to know her boyfriend. Part of the problem is that Rebecca is in fullblown rebellion, and your disapproval of Rick is a compelling reason for her to stay with him. Stop railing against the situation. Instead, invite Rick and Rebecca over for dinner. You need to find out whether he’s a good guy, and if not, help Rebecca see that for herself. Dear Annie: I have known “Georgiana” since grade school. She’s a good- hearted, loyal, trustworthy person, but is quite difficult to be around, and I can only take her in small doses. My mother reviewed an autism website and dis-

covered that Georgiana displays many of the traits and characteristics of someone with autism. However, she grew up at a time when learning disabilities were not commonly diagnosed, and she never got the help she needed. Both of her parents died when she was in her early 20s, and although she’s in contact with her extended family, they provide minimal support. Now things seem to be piling up. In four years, Georgiana has had five different jobs. She’s currently unemployed and owes thousands of dollars in credit card debt. She is barely making it. We want to help by directing her to the support she needs, but she is very stubborn and defensive, so we are reluctant to approach her. If she does have autism, how do we convince Georgiana to be evaluated by a specialist? — Bedford, Mass. Dear Bedford: It is possible that Georgiana suffers from Asperger’s, which is a high-functioning form of autism. She may also have an underlying mental illness or simply lack social skills. In order to influence her, you will have to spend more time in her company and perhaps enlist the help of her extended family. Ask if she’s seen her doctor lately, and whether she would allow you (or one of her relatives) to accompany

her to her next visit. Whoever goes with her can mention these concerns to the doctor. Dear Annie: “With a Grateful Heart” is exactly right: Placing a child for adoption takes courage. I am thankful for my loving and devoted parents, siblings and large extended family. My dad was my coach, my mother baked cookies, and my sibs and I rode bikes and built forts. I attended excellent schools and earned college scholarships. I am educated, well-employed and married to a wonderful man with whom I have four children. I am adopted and am living the American dream. I have met my birth parents and half-siblings. They are amazing people, but encountered hardships and tragedies I never had to deal with. My birthmother gave me an immeasurable gift by putting my needs before her own. My husband and I have already agreed that if one of our children should accidentally become pregnant, we will guide her to choose adoption. — The Luckiest Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
