Forge group targets hillsides

PIGEON FORGE — It appears there is at least one advantage to coming in last: borrowing. Though they’re really only one work session into their process, the Pigeon Forge Hillsides Committee seems poised to benefit from what’s already been done in the other cities and the county. In its brief existence, the group

has several times referenced similar efforts done by other committees, with a few members having served on those boards, including Chief Planner David Taylor. He served on the county’s Hillsides Taskforce. The various groups have studied recommendations from New Yorkbased engineering firm Saratoga Associates. That agency was hired by the cities and the county to conduct a study on local devel-

opment on hillsides and ridges, and to submit suggestions for new regulations. The proposed rules aren’t meant to stop development on those lands, but rather to ensure it is done in the best way. The Pigeon Forge group hasn’t yet voted on any of the recommendations. It seems likely the committee will suggest stricter rules apply to land at a lesser slope than was approved by Gatlinburg, where

most of the land is steep. Pigeon Forge’s committee has plenty of unique challenges. Though the city isn’t really thought of as having a lot of sloped property to regulate, Taylor showed the group a map that surprised many by suggesting that 30-40 percent of the city is on land at steeper than a 20 percent grade. The Saratoga engineers suggested See hillsides, Page A4

Vietnam vets gather here to reminisce By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer PIGEON FORGE — Vietnam veterans didn’t exactly get a hero’s welcome when they first came back home. And they went through a lot of things they generally don’t like to talk about with people who weren’t there. That’s part of the importance of gatherings like this weekend’s reunion of the Tan Son Nhut Association, a group of veterans who served at Tan Son Nhut air base during the war. They gathered at the MainStay Suites in Pigeon Forge. “We weren’t welcomed back like most other soldiers who served in a war,” President Robert Gale said. “There’s this not-quite-subconscious effort to make our comrades feel appreciated.” Members offer seminars on topics from Post Traumatic Stress Disorder to recollections of their encounters and overviews of battles fought at and around the base.

Vietnam veterans Richard Carvell, Robert Gales, Dale Bryan and George Plunkett reminisce over some photographs during the reunion of the Tan Son Nhut Association held in Pigeon Forge. Members served at different times during the Vietnam war at the Tan Son Nhut airbase. It’s a chance to remember what it was like when they were young, but for many it’s also a chance to remember what it was like to be in harm’s way, too. And that’s something they don’t talk about easily to outsiders. Discussing the horrors of any war is difficult, and members said for many Vietnam vets it’s more difficult to talk to outsiders because of the way they were treated when they first returned. “We know what we went through,” Gale said. “It’s a

Nearly 700 participate in annual Memory walk By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer PIGEON FORGE — Neither the rain nor the down economy could dampen the spirits at the Smoky Mountain Memory Walk, held at Pigeon Forge High School.

State School of Beauty recognizes Valentine From Submitted Reports Pat Valentine has been inducted into Tennessee School of Beauty’s Hall of Fame. Valentine, a long-time resident of Sevier County, becomes the seventh person in the school’s 79-year existence to receive the honor. The award, presented at the school’s graduation ceremony, goes to an individual who has had a significant impact on the cosmetology profession,

specifically education. According to Adam Brown, president of the school, “For the past 18 years, there has not been a single student, graduate, teacher, or salon owner who has walked through our doors that has not been helped, touched and positively affected by Ms. V. She has overseen the growth of TSB from 80 students to its current enrollment of more than 250 students, making the school one of the five larg-

est cosmetology schools in the Southeast. “She continues to put the best interests of the school and the students at the front of every decision and curriculum change she makes. This school would not be what it is today without Ms. V.� Valentine is the wife of the late Jimmy Valentine and the mother of Rick Valentine of Sevier County. Her picture will be permanently displayed at the school.

the rules settle on property at 15 percent or greater, though so far no one has followed that guide. Developments on some of the city’s steepest land have prompted previous modifications of development rules. With concerns about infrastructure problems, landslides and emergency access increasing with the slope of the land, city leaders have made changes like forbidding planned unit developments that rely on septic systems and lessening the allowed grade of roads. In recent years building has crept up local hillsides. SRA Architects engineer Mike Smelcer said during a recent session that the city’s hillsides remain largely undeveloped. Planning staffer Karl Kreis suggested that’s quickly changing. “Historically, but (developments are) getting pushed up the hillsides,� Kries said. As the group works its way through the Saratoga suggestions, it seems likely it will find some ordinances to change as well. After viewing a slide of a hillside development that was abandoned by its developers, City Commissioner David Wear suggested there be a requirement developers secure bonds that will pay to mitigate their work if they give up on a project. Meanwhile, Smelcer proposed the city consider setting an expiration date for site plans. Now, approvals given to proposals last forever. It seems likely the final product will be an attempt to balance Saratoga’s strict suggestions with the East Tennessee dedication to property rights. “I would much rather us be more restrictive than too loose,� Wear said. “It’s about finding that balance,� Smelcer said. It appears the group will have to work to find that balance. Proposals for the grade at which the rules should kick in range from Saratoga’s 15 percent to 20 percent suggested by Smelcer and Planning Commission Chairman Bill Bradley; to 25 percent backed by firefighter Roger Price. The group is expected to take action on that matter during its next session at 2:30 p.m. Nov. 10.

nation briefs Sheriff: Balloon incident a hoax

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) — A Colorado sheriff says it was hoax when parents reported that their 6-year-old son was in a flying saucer-like helium balloon hurtling away from their home. Sheriff Jim Alderden says no charges have been filed yet, and the parents aren’t under arrest. He says he expects to recommend charges of conspiracy, contributing to the delinquency of a minor, making a false report to authorities and attempting to influence a public servant. He says all three children knew of the Thursday hoax, but likely won’t face charges because of their ages.

‘WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama will not commit more U.S. troops to Afghanistan until he is convinced that the central government can be a credible and effective U.S. partner, a senior White House aide said Sunday. But it was unclear whether Obama intends to accept the recommendation by Gen. Stanley McChrystal for thousands more troops and other resources in the 8-year-struggle to stabilize Afghanistan. The central ques-

tion, chief of staff Rahm Emanuel said, is “not how much troops you have, but whether in fact there’s an Afghan partner.�

Public option not Obama demand

WASHINGTON (AP) — President Barack Obama isn’t demanding that health care legislation include a government-run insurance option even though he believes it would best meet his reform goals, White House advisers said Sunday. The White House and lawmakers are trying to blend five House and Senate committee versions of health care legislation into a bill that will pass both houses, where near unanimous Republican opposition was expected. House Democrats are insisting that there be a public option.

Gates seeks allies for Afghan battle

WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon’s chief is undertaking the tricky task of trying to persuade allies to remain committed to the war in Afghanistan even as the Obama administration debates whether to send more troops to fight. Defense Secretary Robert Gates is undecided — at least publicly — on whether to order more forces to fight the Taliban in Afghanistan, as his top commander there has requested, or to focus more narrowly on al-Qaida terrorists believed to be hiding in Pakistan. Gates departed Sunday on a weeklong mission to Japan, Korea and Slovakia.

Third person dies from sweat lodge

The 49-year-old suffered multiple organ damage during the Oct. 8 ceremony at a resort near Sedona, a resort town 115 miles north of Phoenix that draws many in the New Age spiritual movement.

Def Leppard ends American tour

ST. PAUL, Minn. (AP) — Rock band Def Leppard has canceled the final leg of its North American tour. The band said in a statement on its Web site that it canceled 23 shows in the U.S. and Canada “due to unforeseen personal matters.� The last leg of the tour was to start Oct. 22 in Reno, Nevada, and wrap up Nov. 28 in Beaumont, Texas. The band said it “agonized over this decision.�

From Submitted Reports

State Sen. Doug Overbey, R-Maryville, has been appointed to the Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities Statewide Planning and Policy Council. The appointment was made by Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey. “I am very pleased to be appointed to this Council,� said Overbey, who serves on the Health and Human Resources Committee in the Senate. That committee oversees matters involving mental health and developmental disability issues. “I look forward to being a part of working with my colleagues on the council to improve opportunities for these citizens,� said Overbey, whose district includes all of Sevier and Blount counties. Overbey has introduced numerous bills related to mental health services, including a law passed this year that would ensure that crisis services continue to be available. That new law requires the Department of Mental Health and Developmental Disabilities to coordinate with other departments and agencies of state government to make sure that services for persons in psychiatric emergencies include a 24-hour, seven-day-a-week toll free telephone number, and walk-in triage screening, assessment, intervention and follow-up care. It also calls for access to inhouse crisis care. Overbey represents District 8 in the State Senate.

Audit reveals flaws in TBI work NASHVILLE (AP) — A state audit of the Tennessee Bureau of Investigation has found the agency that runs background checks on teachers and gun buyers often lacks information about criminal convictions. The Tennessean reports a state comptroller’s report released recently found problems with court clerks forwarding the results of criminal cases. The problem stems from a long-standing argument about whether the courts

or police and sheriffs departments are responsible for informing the TBI about convictions. “Without accurate and up-to-date arrest disposition information, bureau activities such as background checks for law enforcement agencies and routine civil applicant and gun purchase background checks can be unnecessarily delayed or come to an erroneous conclusion,” the audit states. “Federal and local law enforcement agencies are also impeded in their

She said the process is burdensome but the agency is confident it has not made mistakes that could result in felons purchasing guns or convicted child molesters teaching children. The agency is aware of all arrests in the

The state Administrative Office of the Courts claims that, by law, the responsibility for informing the TBI of criminal convictions falls to law enforcement. But the audit places the responsibility on the courts. “This is a repeat finding, an ongoing issue,” said auditor Dean Agouridis. “Levying fines is a possibility.”

commentary

Sale tax issue needs quick fix There has been some concern about the local sales tax increase that was voted for a few months back. The increase was .25 percent, or 25 cents on a $100 purchase. This money is to be used by the school board for capital expenditures only. Since my job is to give you some food for thought, here is my view of this situation. Someone from the State Department of Revenue has said that the cities of Pigeon Forge and Sevierville cannot earmark these funds for schools because of the formation of the TDZ in Pigeon Forge and the CBID in Sevierville. The Tourism Development Zone and the Central Business Improvement District — really the same thing — were established for the cities to be able to raise money, by issuing bonds, so that additional projects could be developed to attract more people, bringing more revenue to the area. The monies have been used to build the Events Center in Sevierville and improve the infrastructure to accommodate the additional traffic and other needs that development requires. In Pigeon Forge, the monies have been used to develop the infrastructure necessary to support Belle Island. That project is almost complete and at this point it is in bankruptcy. The national downturn in our economy has made it impossible to secure permanent financing, and no one really knows what will happen to the project. The hope is that it will be completed in the near future. Pigeon Forge is also required to build an events center, and the location and all the specifics are still under consideration. In the meantime, that money has not been used. When the tax increase was passed by the voters, resolutions were approved in Pigeon Forge and Sevierville that said the additional revenue would be given to the school board. At present all of that tax money is being paid as agreed. The state comptroller has said this is in compliance with the law. Charles Cagle, legal counsel for the school board, said that the increase was passed by the people and resolutions were then written to concur with the vote. State Sen. Doug Overbey and State Rep. Montgomery are working diligently to be sure that this matter is resolved, as it was intended, when the Legislature reconvenes. The Events Center in Sevierville is recognized nationally as one of the best in the country, and the number of weeks that have been booked in two years that it has been open is incredible. The Events Center is administered by the Public Building Authority. The establishment of these districts means that a substantial amount of the tax revenue sent to the state is returned to the cities to pay off the bonds. The monies to pay the bonds are put in a separate escrow account in each municipality. Here is the bottom line. Approximately $7 million will be raised by the sales tax increase this year, which is being paid by everyone that visits the county. The money that is in question is less than 1.5 percent of that amount, or about $100,000. The cities and the school board are working together to reconcile this matter. Could it be that one person, or one department in government, is, as Shakepeare would say, making “much ado about nothing?” Another issue that has reared its ugly head is the fact that the county is threatening to sue the cities over money that is owed to the water department. No one has said that some money is not owed; the controversy is over the amount, interest and penalties. Experience has proven that cooperation works better than controversy. We need to create a win/win situation, or everyone loses. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen made a great decision by appointing Steve Hendrix as city manager. He brings a great deal of experience, intelligence and integrity to the position. Our new hospital is looking great and Drs. Littleton, Huskey and Cole have moved in to the new Professional Office Building. The leaves are changing, traffic is increasing, and God’s beauty is all around us. We need to “rejoice and be glad in it.” — Dave Gorden of Sevierville is a member of the Speakers Hall of Fame, past president of the National Speakers Association and one of the Authors of “Chicken Soup For the Adopted Soul.” E-mail Dave@davegorden.com.

Editorial

Kruse control

Auction company should pay its obligations to city, car owners The city of Sevierville’s action against Kruse International may all turn out to be a big misunderstanding, but it sure doesn’t look like it. Kruse is a well-known brand in the auto auction world, whose sales are often featured on TV programs. The company held an auction at the Events Center on June 20 and still hasn’t paid the $12,500 rent it owes for using the facility. It issued an $8,500 check to the city for partial payment that didn’t clear the bank. The city has been forced to file a court claim against the company. That’s not all. The city is investigating complaints that some of the people whose cars were auctioned here haven’t been paid yet. The company, based in Auburn, Ind., said through a spokesman that everything will be OK and the company

is making good on its debt to the city. The spokesman says he’s not aware of any people not paid for car sales. Kruse, like so many businesses, has suffered through the recession, Vice President Fred Gittins told The Mountain Press. Because so many dealerships have closed, kruse has had fewer buyers for the autos its auctions. That makes sense. But that is no excuse for spreading bad paper, not paying your bills and not telling your creditors what’s going on. Sevierville spokesman Bob Stahlke apparently told some media outlets in Indiana that the U.S. Secret Service is conducting a fraud investigation into Kruse, though he didn’t repeat that to this newspaper. If true, it suggests the company has been ducking its obligations in more than just Sevieriville.

The Better Business Bureau of Northern Indiana has given the company an “F,” its lowest rating. It cited 36 complaints against the company, 21 of which went unanswered. Several message boards concerning collectible car auctions also have posts complaining that Kruse International has been slow in repaying consignors. This looks bad, but may all turn out to be OK. Slow payments are better than no payments. However, if this is all a symptom of the company’s status and business practices, then Kruse had better not book the Events Center for an auction next year, as Gittins says it wants to do. The city wants all the business it can generate for the Events Center, but not if those who use it don’t pay their bills.

Political view

Public forum Waldrep praises community for support of recent visit by Bush Editor: On behalf of the staff of Phil Waldrep Ministries, I wish to express my appreciation to the Sevierville community for their support during the recent visit by former President George W. Bush.

Special thanks goes to the men and women of the Sevierville Police Department, Sevier County Sheriff’s Department, Tennessee Highway Patrol and the United States Secret Service. In particular, I wish to express my gratitude to Capt. Terry Bryan of the Sevierville Police Department for coordinating with the federal authorities. The attendees enjoyed their time in

Sevierville and surrounding areas. It was refreshing to see the hotels, restaurants and shopping areas full during our time. The citizens of Sevierville and Sevier County can be proud of the Events Center at Bridgemont and their staff. Their hard work is bringing conventions and tourism to the area. Phil Waldrep Trinity, Ala.

Vols to face No. 1 team NEW YORK (AP) — After a steady climb, Alabama has reached the top of the AP poll. The Crimson Tide, which hosts Tennessee at 3:30 p.m. Saturday in Tuscaloosa, jumped Florida and landed at No. 1 in The Associated Press Top 25 on Sunday. The unbeaten Gators had been in the top spot since the preseason, but the Crimson Tide has been gaining ground for weeks by winning more convincingly than the Gators. The final surge came after Alabama beat South Carolina 20-6 and Florida needed a field goal in the waning seconds to beat Arkansas 23-20 at home. The Crimson Tide, which received 10 first-place votes last week, got 39 out of 59 from the media panel. Florida received the other 20 firstplace votes. Texas is No. 3, followed by Southern California, Cincinnati and Boise State

at No. 6. The Broncos dropped a spot. Unbeaten Iowa moved up four places after beating Wisconsin 20-10 on the road. Miami, LSU and TCU round out the top 10. Alabama started the season ranked fifth, then immediately moved up a spot to fourth after beating Virginia Tech to start the season. After two weeks at No. 4, the Crimson Tide moved up another spot to No. 3. After three weeks behind Florida and Texas, Alabama jumped the Longhorns last week and finished the climb to No. 1 on Sunday. Alabama was No. 1 for five weeks in the second half of last season, including two weeks when SEC rival Florida was No. 2. The Gators, the defending national champions, came into the season as an overwhelming No. 1, receiving the highest of percentage of first-place

votes ever in the preseason poll. But Tim Tebow and the Gators have sputtered offensively and had trouble putting away the better teams on their schedule. They had 10-point victories against Tennessee and LSU before beating Arkansas on a field goal with 9 seconds left. Alabama’s four SEC victories have been by an average of 19 points, with the closest margin being 14 against South Carolina. Florida’s four SEC wins have been by an average of 14 points, but that was padded by a 34-point victory against Kentucky. Alabama also has a nonconference victory against No. 15 Virginia Tech. Florida has played only one ranked team, LSU. Georgia Tech made the biggest jump in the rankings this week, moving up eight spots to No. 11 after beating Virginia Tech 28-23.

Ho-hum: Johnson wins another NASCAR race

AP Photo/Terry Renna

Jimmie Johnson celebrates in victory lane after winning the NASCAR Banking 500 Sprint Cup Series auto race at Lowe’s Motor Speedway in Concord, N.C., Saturday night.

CONCORD, N.C. (AP) — Jimmie Johnson has a commanding lead in the race for the Sprint Cup title. He’s practically on cruise control to a NASCARrecord fourth consecutive championship. Yet he refuses to claim this title, even after a “perfect weekend” at Lowe’s Motor Speedway gave Johnson his third win in five Chase for the championship races this season. He has a 90-point lead over Hendrick Motorsports teammate Mark Martin at the halfway point of the 10-race Chase. “I think it’s a nice points lead, but there’s no need for anybody to get too excited yet,” Johnson said. “We’re excited and optimistic, but at the same time, there’s a lot of danger out there. One flat tire, one mechanical (problem), Talladega ... I’m not trying to downplay where we’re at, but there’s five races left. “There’s a lot of races left.” But on a night where most of the championship contenders struggled to stay out of trouble, Johnson was ran another flawless race. He grabbed yet another impressive career milestone Saturday night by closing out a weekend in which he led every practice session and started from the pole with his sixth career victory at Lowe’s. “This was a personal goal of mine, we’ve been close twice,” said crew chief Chad Knaus, who got the Lowe’s-sponsored No. 48 back to Victory Lane at Charlotte for the first time since 2005. The win, Johnson’s sixth of the sea-

son and 46th overall, moved the Lowe’ssponsored driver into a tie with Buck Baker for 13th on the career victory list. More importantly, it extended his lead in the standings to 90 points over teammate Mark Martin at the halfway point in the 10-race Chase. And in more bad news for the competition? They head next to Martinsville Speedway, where Johnson has won five of the last six races. “It’s definitely not over,” third-place finisher Kasey Kahne said. “I mean, anything can happen the rest of the year. But if it doesn’t, I think Jimmie is the guy to beat.” So does everyone else. Matt Kenseth was second, followed by Kahne and Jeff Gordon, Johnson’s teammate at Hendrick Motorsports. Martin, who started the race 12 points behind his teammate in the standings, finished 17th in part because of front-end damage received when he ran into the back of Juan Pablo Montoya on an early restart. It was that kind of night for several title contenders, as eight of the 12 finished outside the top 10 in a rare off night for the Chase drivers. Montoya, who was third in the standings and just 58 points out of the lead at the start of the race, dropped to sixth and is now 195 points out. He damaged the front and back ends of his car on the restart problem with Martin and Clint Bowyer, and fell two laps down trying to get pit road for repairs.

A-Rod finds self as Yankees take 2-0 series lead NEW YORK (AP) — Alex Rodriguez is putting all those playoff failures behind him. The Los Angeles Angels are turning the AL championship series into a defensive debacle. Coming through under pressure once again, Rodriguez hit a tying homer in the 11th inning and the New York Yankees edged Los Angeles 4-3 Saturday night on Maicer Izturis’ error in the 13th for a 2-0 lead in the bestof-seven series. “Wow, what a game,” Rodriguez said. After the rain came and went on another chilly night, New York pulled out its latest late-inning thriller and remained unbeaten in this year’s playoffs. The game ended at 1:07 a.m. when Izturis threw away Melky Cabrera’s grounder to second base. “Izzy just tried to do too much,” Angels manager Mike Scioscia said. “You’re

not going to turn two.” Pinch-hitter Jerry Hairston Jr. opened the 13th with a single off losing pitcher Ervin Santana in his first postseason at-bat. Brett Gardner sacrificed and Robinson Cano was intentionally walked as the crowd chanted “Melky! Melky!” Cabrera hit a bouncer in the hole between first and second, and Izturis made an ill-advised attempt to throw back across his body for a force at second. The low toss skipped past shortstop Erick Aybar and rolled behind third, where Chone Figgins tried to pick it up. Figgins fumbled the ball and Hairston, who had slowed up, sped home and slid in with the winning run. “It hit my glove and kind of kicked off,” Figgins said.” It’s one of those crazy things that I was backing up but the ball slipped out of my hands.”

NEW YORK (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The subjects of this yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s National Book Award nominees were better known than the authors. Biographies about tycoons Henry Ford and Cornelius Vanderbilt were among the finalists announced Wednesday, along with two books relating to Charles Darwin. But judges also omitted such widely publicized releases as Lorrie Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;At the Gate of the Stairs,â&#x20AC;? Richard Powersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; â&#x20AC;&#x153;Generosityâ&#x20AC;? and Blake Baileyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biography of John Cheever. Five books from university presses were among the 20 chosen in four competitive categories. Fiction judges picked Bonnie Jo Campbellâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s story collection, â&#x20AC;&#x153;American Salvage,â&#x20AC;? a paperback original released by Wayne State University Press, the publisherâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first National Book Award nomination in its more than 60 year history. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re very pleasantly surprised. We nominate some of our best books each year and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve finally made it,â&#x20AC;? said Wayne State Press director Jane Hoehner. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think awards should just go to the big guns. There needs to be a combination, a willingness to look around and find talent.â&#x20AC;? Winners, each of whom receive $10,000, will be announced at a Nov. 18 ceremony in New York.

Advice

Wife’s jealousy leads to suicide attempt

Zits

Blondie

Baby Blues

Dear Annie: My husband and I have been together for 23 years. I love him more than life itself, and he says the same. We have two boys, 19 and 20. Here is my problem. “Don” is a self-employed contractor, and last year, he did a job for a woman and they became friends. I told him I was not comfortable with this friendship. A year ago, I caught him sending her a very personal e-mail. I was so hurt I tried to kill myself, but he stopped me and promised he would not talk to her again. But he did it again in May. He lies to me all the time about her. He keeps promising to stop, but I just found out he is still calling her and has gone to her house twice to do small jobs. I am so hurt. Don insists there’s no affair, but the only way I can believe him is if he swears to God he hasn’t kissed her, and he won’t. This is consuming my entire life. I am afraid to go to work, the store or anyplace without Don, because I worry he’s going to call her in my absence. I want her out of our lives. I cannot live without Don. I am so consumed with grief that I have started to write letters to my boys explaining why I feel suicide is best. Annie, please tell me how to make my husband understand this is literally killing me. -- Hurting in Troy, Mich. Dear Troy: Your letter is a cry for help. We hope you can find the strength to get through this for your sons’ sake if not your own. They will never recover if you suc-

ceed in killing yourself. Please get into counseling immediately, with or without Don. Ask your doctor or clergyperson to refer you. A counselor will not only help you deal with your husband, but also with your fears. Suicide is not the way to resolve this. You deserve better. Dear Annie: I have never been married, but would love to be. I have been with my boyfriend for nine years, and we have two children. We live together, share finances, bills, everything. We separated for nearly a year because he refused to marry me. When we got back together, he told me to give him time and maybe he’d come around. I do love him and want to spend the rest of my life with him. He says it’s just a piece of paper, but it is important to me to have that legal title. He knew this from the beginning. He says he wants to be with me forever, so why won’t he make it legal? Is it me? Should I give up? -Not Marriage Material Dear Marriage: We don’t know why your boyfriend refuses to marry you after all this time, but some men find marriage too ideologically confining. Unless you are willing to leave him, the situation is not likely to change. However, in some states, living

together for nine years would constitute a common-law marriage with certain legal protections. You should check into it. Dear Annie: “Desperate in Pennsylvania” asked about a clicking noise when she swallows. If the sound is originating from the neck, this could represent contact between her thyroid cartilage and hyoid bone, or between her hyoid bone and styloid process. If the sound is originating in her ear, it could be coming from the cartilage portion of the eustachian tube when the attached muscles contract during swallowing. She should be able to have the source diagnosed by an otolaryngologist (ear, nose and throat specialist). -- Douglas Hetzler, M.D., FACS, Department of Otolaryngology, Palo Alto Medical Foundation, Santa Cruz, Calif. Dear Dr. Hetzler: Thank you. Some of our readers have complained that we are printing too much on this subject, so they’ll be happy to know this is the last one. We appreciate all the expert opinions and hope they prove helpful. Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.
