Expansion at Titanic under way

INSIDE

PIGEON FORGE — Work has apparently begun to expand the offerings at the Titanic Museum Attraction just months after the facility open, with a project to finish out the third floor of the structure under way. Developer Jon Joslyn says

contractors have begun to rough-in the space that will soon serve as an events and meeting space, complete with a serving area for caterers. The area seems likely to be open in time for Christmas gatherings, with Joslyn hoping it will become a popular offering for both local and out-of-the-area businesses to hold events.

Word of the plans for the popular, ship-shaped diversion first came out over the summer as the Pigeon Forge Planning Commission considered a request to make a small addition on the back of the building. That space would have held an elevator to access the third floor, though work on it has not begun, Joslyn says.

Instead, those who use the facility will be taken to it by an elevator inside the exhibit that goes to the third floor, which is not part of the regular tour offerings at Titanic. The building was constructed with the unfinished space to allow for future expansion, Joslyn explains. However, offiSee TITANIC, Page A5

The first responders to the scene check for signs of life after an afternoon wreck on Chapman Highway southbound, about 100 yards from the Sevierville city limits. The 1999 Oldsmobile Delta 88 left the road in a straight away and went into the ditch hitting a culvert and flipping. The elderly couple inside died instantly. The vehicle had Knox County tags and the victims were wearing seat belts. Tennessee Highway Patrol, Sevier County Sheriff’s Department. rescue squad, Sevier County VFD., and ambulance service responded. As of press time Tuesday, officials had not released names of the victims.

SEVIERVILLE — The second day of Dr. Rodney Carter’s hearing before an administrative law judge was reminiscent of his criminal trial, with former patients testifying about alleged inappropriate contact by the doctor and staff members from his clinic contradicting the patients. A jury acquitted Carter earlier this year of charges of rape and sexual assault involving male patients at his clinic, but his license to practice medicine remains suspended until the Board of Medical Examiners resolves his status. While he has been cleared of criminal wrongdoing, the board is examining whether his actions violated guidelines for doctors. See CARTER, Page A5

Robinson continues to question WSCC donation City finances worry Forge commissioner By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer PIGEON FORGE — The battle lines were already clearly drawn coming into the City Commission meeting, but that didn’t stop discussion of a gift to Walters State

Community College exploding into a debate that ranged from pending lawsuits to funding a new wastewater plant. Though four of the board’s members already expressed support for giving $200,000 to the school to obtain an $8 million grant from the state, that did nothing to shorten the debate led by Commissioner Randal Robinson, the only official to

question the move. Reading from a story in Monday’s Mountain Press, Robinson dismissed assurances from other officials that the city is on solid ground. He contends the city is $260 million in debt and cannot afford to make the contribution. “I’m 100 percent for giving money to Walters State of any other worthy organization,”

Robinson said. “But I don’t see how we can just give away $200,000 if we can’t pay our debts.” Robinson contends the city owes $260 million, but only has $32 million in reserves. He’s used the same argument in past fights; the other officials say he’s wrong. See ROBINSON, Page A5

National Samoyed championship

By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — A local car dealership is apparently closing within the next few days, though one person in its management hints the business may get new life. Just about six months ago the business’ namesake died, and now his son confirms Larry Hill GMC is closing. “We are only going to be open through the end of the month,” Jeff Hill said Tuesday. “There is a bit more going on behind the scenes, though.” Hill said he couldn’t discuss details, citing a confidentiality agreement. However, he did say there would be a “joint announcement” made between Larry Hill’s owners and another group before the end of the week. A salesman was telling customers at the site Tuesday that there is an “acquisition” in the works. Larry Hill piloted the dealership from 1982 See DEALDERSHIP, Page A4

Cocke County bridge reopens Submitted Report COCKE COUNTY — Tennessee Department of Transportation has formally opened and re-dedicated the Major J.T. Huff Bridge on U.S. Highway 25/70 (State Route 9) in the Bridgeport community. The new concrete bridge replaces the original fourspan steel-through truss structure built in 1933. The old bridge was only 20 feet wide, was classified as structurally deficient and was posted with a weight limit, so in 2007 TDOT started work to replace the aging structure. The new bridge is more than twice the width with two 12-foot lanes and two 10-foot shoulders.

‘Army’ gears up for holidays; call goes out for bell-ringers By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer The Salvation Army is gearing up for the annual red kettle campaign that is crucial to its ability to serve thousands of Sevier County residents in need each year. As it does, the nonprofit is looking for local folks and groups who would be willing to pick up the ubiquitous bells that call people to help out their neighbors through most of November and December. The effort of ringing those bells to draw donations in the red kettles starts Nov. 15 and runs from 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. every day through Christmas Eve. Even just the contribution of an hour one of those days can go a long way toward helping the agency provide a plethora of social services, the Sevierville Corps commander Lt. Justin Caldwell says. “We can’t do what we do without these volunteers,” he explains. “Volunteers are the army that keeps the Army going. For every hour we have volunteers ringing, that’s more money we have to serve people.” The Army, the national organization of which is year after year recognized by Money magazine as the best charity because it uses more of its contributions for actual social services than any other agency, will have kettles and ringers stationed at 21 spots around the county this year. Those include grocery stores, Walmart and even the Belz outlet mall in Pigeon Forge. The numbers the local Army organization has seen throughout the past few years are staggering, and only reinforce the need for a successful kettle campaign. It gave out 550 baskets of food at Thanksgiving to folks in

need last year, a significant increase over previous years. Likewise, the group served an astounding 700 children through its angel tree program in 2009, a program that provides two new outfits and a couple toys to children who might pass the holidays without a single present otherwise. Even that pales in comparison to what Caldwell expects the agency will be called on to do this year, though. “We’ve had so many calls it’s almost frightening. I’m expecting we’re going to have 700 or 800 families sign up for Thanksgiving baskets and I have no idea how many children we’ll serve at Christmas,” he says. “I say it’s almost frightening, but I’m not worried because I truly believe, once people hear about the need, they’ll step up and help.” In addition to those two seasonal programs, the Army works throughout the year to help people who find themselves in desperate situations. Through donations from the kettles and the community, the group helps people keep the heat

and lights on through the Smoky Mountain winter, provides character-building programs for children, and assists communities when disaster strikes, among a lengthy list of other programs. This year, the local group also added a baby pantry that provides supplies to parents who find themselves unable to provide for their children, filling in gaps left by government programs. It did so thanks to the generosity of local people during last year’s kettle campaign. “The funding we get from the kettles gets us through the whole year,” Caldwell says. “For some of the bigger corps like Knoxville it’s not as big a deal. It may be something like 20 or 30 percent of their budgets. For us, it’s about half of everything we’ll raise in the year and without it we would have to cut so much. It’s crucial.” For more information on the campaign or to volunteer, call the Salvation Army’s office at 908-4014. n dhodges@themountainpress.com

SEVIERVILLE — The Alzheimer’s Association Caregiver Workshop is set for 8:45 a.m. to 4 p.m. on Monday at First United Methodist Church. The training workshop is to educate professional and family caregivers on Alzheimer’s disease and give useful information concerning dementia care. After completing the training, participants should have a better understanding of the disease, its process and available treatments; practical tips for caring for the individual with dementia; and insight into maintaining a healthy spiritual life. “The workshops are beneficial,” said Sevierville resident Alma Curtis, who was a caregiver for her sister before she entered an assisted living home. “You can get a lot of questions answered. Support groups are also a big help — people can really relate to one another.” Curtis, the youngest of three siblings, said her sister was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s around four years ago. “I had a brother who also had symptoms, but I wasn’t caring for him on a day-today basis,” she said. “My sister lived next door to me, and there was a lady who stayed with her during the day. I would put her medicine out and monitor if she took it or not. “I made sure she ate, because she wouldn’t get hungry and would forget to eat. I also helped her with her financial matters.” Her sister’s husband, a retired ophthalmologist, died in 2006. She was diagnosed with Alzheimer’s disease shortly afterward.

“She was confused, forgetful and hid things, like her purse. I suppose in her mind, she thought someone would get it,” Curtis said. “She started hiding it in the same place, but then she got smart and hid it different places, so it was harder to find. “She was in denial (about her disease). She would tell me, ‘Well, you forget things, too!’” Curtis said with a laugh. “I said, ‘Well, yes, I do.’” She took her sister’s car away, concerned that she would drive out somewhere and forget where she was. “That was tough. She was really depressed about that and the loss of her husband.” After she suffered a stroke, she received therapy. At that time Curtis began looking into assisted living homes. Her sister moved to a new community in April. “She was still in denial when she had her stroke, but now I think she’s happier — I think she forgot about a lot of things (that depressed her),” Curtis said. When she first began caring for her sister, Curtis started attending an Alzheimer’s Caregiver support group, one of the first formed in Sevier County at the old hospital. “You get something different out of the workshop and the support group. The workshop is more technical — you have doctors and social workers who come and speak. The support group is more personal, people sharing their experiences.” Topics for Monday’s Caregiver workshop include Alzheimer’s Disease overview and research highlights; legal issues, such as power of attor-

ney, Medicaid update and Medicare frauds; caregiver stress and burnout; and “Family Dynamics: Birth Order and Caregiving.” Keynote speaker is Lee Wilson, who has more than 18 years of experience in directing clinical services and community education. He is known for developing and facilitating family caregiver support groups for the community. Other speakers include George Doebler, special adviser to University of Tennessee Medical Center Pastoral Care Services; Dr. John Dougherty, director of the UT Medical Center Cole Neuroscience Center; Kelly Frere, certified elder law attorney; and Evelyn Taylor-McNamara, Chandler House spiritual and grief counselor. General registration is $40 for healthcare professionals and $20 for family caregivers. Advanced registration is required and seating is limited. The fee includes materials, refreshments and lunch. Registration and fees will be accepted by mail, fax or online at www.alz.org/tn. Curtis’ sister will be 86 years old in December. Curtis believes the medicine she is on is helping to slow down progress of Alzheimer’s. Most importantly, her sister seems happy. “She still likes to sing, and she remembers some things from when we were young.” To other caregivers and loved ones of Alzheimer’s patients, she offers this advice: “Seek education — learn all you can about the disease. The know you more about something, the more you can help.” n ebrown@themountainpress.com

DEALERSHIP 3From Page A1

until his death in early April. A woman who answered the phone for the repair shop Tuesday told a caller who sought an appointment next week that the shop was closed for the day to complete an inventory, and no one could schedule that appointment. When asked if the mechanics would be back on the job the next day, she said she’s not sure if the project would be done by then and suggested the customer call Volunteer Chevrolet. Volunteer apparently purchased a considerable amount of the equipment from the Larry Hill dealership shop. There were employees in the service department at Larry Hill GMC on Tuesday. Jeff Hill’s comments were the first formal confirmation the business is closing, though there had been other signs. Over the last few days, hauler trucks have taken both new and used vehicles off the lot. The lot was nearly empty Tuesday morning. There was

no indication where the inventory has gone, though reports suggest the cars have been taken to other General Motors dealers. Additionally, the business’ Web site has been taken down, leaving in its place the simple statement, “This URL is not setup within our system.” There are indications some of the employees at the dealership were let go late last week. The land the business sits on is owned by J.S. Eledge Properties, which leases property to several commercial enterprises along Dolly Parton Parkway. When contacted by The Mountain Press Tuesday, a spokeswoman for the group said she doesn’t know anything about changes in the lease agreement with the car dealership. n dhodges@themountainpress.com

ROBINSON 3From Page A1

That’s because, for one thing, they have an issue with Robinson’s math. “That’s fuzzy math,� Commissioner David Wear told him at Monday’s meeting. Robinson is adding the cost of a planned new wastewater plant to existing debt, and the cost of what he says is a $150 million court judgment against the city and a $10 million lawsuit related to that earlier case. However, city attorney Jim Gass pointed out the details of that first suit are still being debated and the latter hasn’t been settled yet, so there’s no guarantee the city will owe anything. Further, others on the commission say Robinson’s contention is absurd because he views debt as something that must be paid now, rather than something that can be spread out over years or decades to help the city afford major projects. “When I went to build my house, I didn’t have all the money to pay for it right away. I had to borrow it,� Mayor Keith Whaley said. Wear asked City Recorder Dennis Clabo to list the credits to the

city’s financial situation, including that $32 million reserve and better-thanexpected tax receipts so far this year, before railing against Robinson’s argument. “I can’t imagine why anybody would have to defend helping (Walters State) and helping our local kids have access to cheap higher education right in our own backyard,� Wear said. “I did my homework on this. I called the counselors down at the high school. They said 40 percent of the kids from there go to Walters State after they graduate, and that’s not counting the single moms and dads who have the chance to go there and better their lives.� Wear argued the city does have the money to make the gift and, in fact, can’t afford not to make what he calls “our investment� in the school. “The purpose of a community is to enhance the quality of life for those in it,� Wear said. “This speaks directly to quality of life. I think it’s our obligation to do it.� In the end, the group voted 4-1 to support the move, with Robinson voting no. During the session, the commissioners also approved: n A bid for fire shelters

State threatened by severe weather most of the day Combined Reports Strong windstorms have raced across Tennessee, spawning funnel clouds and bringing high winds. No tornado touchdowns were reported by late afternoon Tuesday as the storms in some super cells passed through Middle Tennessee and into East Tennessee. Some home videos showed

To that end, the board ordered an administrative law hearing held here before Judge Steve Darnell. Darnell will make findings of fact in the case, and the board will review those in deciding whether Carter violated any of its standards. After that, the board will decide whether he should be reinstated or face other punishment, which could include permanent loss of his license. The hearings are being held in Sevierville so that witnesses won’t have to travel to Nashville. Prosecutor Shiva Bozarth called six of Carter’s former patients to testify about exams given by Carter in which they said they believed he acted inappropriately while performing genital or rectal exams. The patients’ testimony was similar to what they previously said during the criminal trial — that Carter touched them inappropriately with a bare hand during genital exams, or asked them to stimulate themselves while he was preforming a rectal exam or “milking their prostate,� or that he attempted to

what appeared to be funnel clouds. There was no immediate word of any damage in Sevier County. At the height of the storm, nearly 2000 customers were without power in Knox County. Other areas hit with power outages include the Meadowbrook neighborhood of Alcoa, where

400 utility customers were affected, and the White Oak area of LaFollette. Much of Middle Tennessee and parts of East Tennessee were under tornado warnings or watches during the day. Temperatures dropped from the 80s into the 60s or lower as a cold front moved quickly across the state.

stimulate them sexually himself. The patients said there was not a medical assistant or other member of Carter’s staff in the room when the alleged incidents took place. As they did in the criminal trial, members of his staff took the stand to contradict that testimony. Two staff members testified Tuesday, saying they were present for some of the exams and that they didn’t witness any inappropriate behavior by Carter. More staff members are expected to testify for the defense today, along with an expert called by the defense and, possibly, Carter himself. If Carter does testify, it would be his first time speaking publicly about the accusations that surfaced last year, when a

grand jury indicted him on rape and sexual assault charges. His defense has been that the patients mistook normal exams for inappropriate behavior, especially in exams where the patient can be uncomfortable despite the efforts of a professional. n jfarrell@themountainpress.com

Labor outlook grim for coming year NASHVILLE (AP) — The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce predicts the state will lose thousands of jobs in its goods producing sector over the coming year, and that a post-secondary education will be vital to earn a decent wage. The department’s annual work force report released this week assesses the state of employment opportunity throughout Tennessee’s work force. It shows the state is projected to lose about 15,000 jobs in that area

over the next year because of the poor economy. It also projects an expected loss of more than 14,000 jobs in trade, transportation and utilities. However, the report said the service-providing industry may grow more than 18,000 jobs, the bulk of that expected in the education and health sectors. The report also examined Tennessee’s green energy sector and showed the state has attracted more than $5 billion in investments related to clean energy.

About 6,000 jobs are expected to be created because of those investments. As for wages, the report points out that they are directly related to educational attainment. According to the report, 13 of the 15 highest paying jobs statewide are in health care fields and all of them require college degrees or more. Those with bachelor’s degrees will have a tough time finding work, as well as those with just some postsecondary education,

commentary

Gates gives top speech of campaign As we, mercifully, approach the end of this depressing campaign season that has done about as much for serious public debate as the Boston Strangler did for door-to-door salesmen, a campaign year when to call one’s opponent an “incumbent“ was grounds for libel, when we’ve been reminded again that apparently the only president who resisted pinning all his problems on the previous administration was George Washington, we should take note of the one memorable speech of this relentlessly dismal political year. This speech was not given by any elected officeholder or candidate. It was that rare speech that did not seek to comfort the comfortable or pander by promising listeners an ouchless, painless future of endless tax cuts and balanced budgets. Nor did this speech blame all the nation’s and the listeners’ pains and trouble on an unpopular “them.” This speaker actually dared to do what neither President George W. Bush nor President Barack Obama has ever done since the U.S. invasion of Iraq: He explicitly urged the young men and women at an elite American university to join the U.S. military. These were the words of Defense Secretary Robert Gates to Duke University students, late last month: “So I would encourage you and all young Americans, especially those at the most selective universities who may not have considered the military, to do so. To go outside your comfort zone and take a risk in every sense of the word. To expand what you were capable of doing when it comes to leadership, responsibility, agility, selflessness and, above all, courage.” Gates offered more than a call to arms. He spoke directly of an avoided undemocratic reality -- that most Americans have grown detached from the wars in Iraq and Afghanistan, that the great civilian majority has come to view military service as “something for other people to do.” Those “other people,” as Gates reminded us, come overwhelmingly from a “tiny sliver of America” concentrated in the South and the Rocky Mountain West, in rural areas and small towns. There is the distinct possibility that eventually the U.S. military and its leaders will be estranged -- culturally and geographically -- from the civilian population it is defending. As of this writing, there are more than 310,534,000 of us living in the United States, and we are defended by roughly 2.4 million of our fellow citizens now on active military duty. This means that all the fighting, sacrificing and dying is being done by considerably less than 1 percent of all Americans and their loved ones. While emphatically praising the professionalism and the competence of those now serving, Gates spoke of the service members’ repeated deployments and the extended separations from their families, as well as the unforgiving pressure and emotional scars. Suicides have increased in every branch of the U.S. military, and the divorce rate has almost doubled. Every politician in shoe leather pays predictable, lip-service praise to those serving in uniform. But Gates told his audience, in and outside the hall, that while most Americans do respect and honor those who have volunteered to serve, the U.S. wars and enormous sacrifices in Iraq and Afghanistan are “a distant and unpleasant series of news items that do not affect them personally.” Absolutely and tragically true. Nobody understood this as well as the late military scholar and ex-GI, Charles Moskos, who told me that the U.S. “national interest is determined not so much by the cause, itself, but instead by who is willing to die for that cause.” Moskos continued: “Only when the privileged do military service, only when the elite youth are under fire does the nation define the cause as worth the blood of our young people.” He added that, in both World Wars, the British nobility had higher casualty rates than did the British working class. Bob Gates, unlike either of the commander in chiefs under whom he has served, has challenged the nation’s gifted and advantaged youth to acknowledge the unearned gift of freedom, to accept the challenge of full citizenship and to shoulder the burdens of defending the nation. The best speech, indeed, of campaign 2010. — Mark Shields is a veteran political campaign manager and frequent television talk show commentator. Column distributed by Creators Syndicate.

TOY story Congratulations to Teacher of Year Cheryl Deaton, finalist Karen Kelley What a terrific honor Cheryl Deaton has brought to Sevier County with her selection as Tennessee Teacher of the Year (TOY). And how nice it was that two of the nine finalists for the honor came from this school system: Deaton, a fourth-grade teacher at Pigeon Forge Primary; and Karen Kelley, a history teacher at Pigeon Forge High. Deaton was announced as Teacher of the Year last Thursday night during a banquet in Nashville. She is the first state TOY from Sevier County since Edna Loveday won the honor some 20 years ago. Deaton’s 34-year career in education has seen her be a classroom teacher as well as a principal. She returned to the classroom nine years ago after she and her husband Bill retired to Wears Valley. Pigeon Forge Primary is sure glad she chose to get back to work. She has proven to be an asset to the school, her students and other faculty members. Her experience as both teacher and administrator has come in handy many times in assisting Principal Nancye Williams with special tasks.

Deaton’s selection is especially poignant, considering she lost her husband Bill unexpectedly in June. He never knew she was chosen a state finalist. Deaton’s acceptance speech included calling her two children, William and Celia, to the stage as she spoke of her husband’s influence and support. There were few dry eyes among the people at the banquet. Karen Kelley didn’t lose. She was one of the nine best teachers in Tennessee. Inspiring high school students to be interested in history can be a challenge. She does it by making the subject interesting and relevant. Deaton now competes for the national teacher of the year honor. She’ll attend a convention in Dallas early next year. Local school officials think she has an excellent chance to win there too. No matter the outcome, she will bring a favorable national spotlight on the Sevier County school system, just as she and Kelley did at the state level. Having a Tennessee teacher of the

year in a school doesn’t necessarily mean you have a superior school system. No school system can rightfully claim to be superior and without room for improvement. What it does show is that at least at Pigeon Forge Primary and High schools, quality, innovation and proven results matter and are supported. It can’t be easy serving as a public school teacher anywhere these days. The Sevier County system has its share of non-English speaking children, homeless kids, troubled children and indifferent parents. Each child comes to school daily with a different set of problems and personal expectations. We demand that our teachers to stand before this disparate group of youngsters and reach them all. Try it some time. Deaton and Kelley succeed in a profession in which success is not assured or, in some cases, appreciated. Congratulations to Cheryl Deaton for her honor and to Karen Kelley for being a finalist. Your students and our school system are richer for having you as teachers.

PREP GRIDIRON: COMMENTARY AND OPINION

G-P, Pigeon Forge still alive for playoffs By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer Okay, this should be fun. I’m going to try to explain the new playoff picture for the two local teams playing football in District 3-AA. The two teams that ironically happen to be playing each other on a special Thursday night televised edition of prep football this week for the regular-season finale. Of course, I’m talking about the GatlinburgPittman Highlanders (6-3) at the Pigeon Forge Tigers (4-5) — Hammonds Bowl IV, which is scheduled for a 7 p.m. kickoff at Jim Whaley Field. Once again, the Blue

there is an abstract concept you need to understand when it comes to determining wildcard spots, which is the best both G-P and Pigeon Forge can obtain this season. and Gold look to be in The number of availexcellent shape to claim able wildcard spots can, their 18th-consecutive and did from last week, playoff berth, while the change on a weekly Tigers are currently on basis. the outside, looking in, If the season ended and hoping for their first last week, there would playoff berth since 2005. have been 16 guaranteed Because this is the (that’s a funny word first season under the when it comes to this newest TSSAA playsystem) Class 3A playoff off rules (which have spots and 16 Class 3A become the alternative wildcard spots. after last year’s new sysIf the season were over tem was scrapped after today, however, there TSSAA was embarrassed would be just 14 guarby releasing playoff anteed Class 3A playoff brackets that then were spots and 18 Class 3A recalled and re-released wildcard spots. And with several changes),

that’s good news for teams in Pigeon Forge’s position. The numbers can and do fluctuate because the 16 districts of Class AA regular-season split into Class 3A and Class 4A at playoff time and are put into separate brackets. Yet, under the new, new TSSAA playoff system, only the top two teams from each of the 16 Class AA regular-season districts earn “guaranteed” playoff berths. It’s because of that rule that the number of guaranteed and wildcard spots changes from week to week. I hope I connected the dots enough there. If not, oh well, let’s move on, please. There are really so

many mathematical possibilities, it’s impossible to discuss them all. But I’ll attempt to look at some of the strongest possibilities. If the season were over today, GatlinburgPittman would hold the No. 10 wildcard position and Pigeon Forge would be two spots out at No. 20. If G-P wins against Pigeon Forge, it will be in the playoffs. I guarantee it, even though theoretically it could be proved mathematically that the Highlanders could be locked out of the postseason even with a 7-3 record. But realistically, that’s not gonna happen. If G-P wins, it will be in. If G-P loses, however,

everything hits the fan for the Blue-and-Gold team and it’ll suddenly be neck deep in TSSAA tie-breakers with potentially as many as 16 other six-win teams, depending on Week 10 results from across the state. With the top five wildcard hopefuls already with seven wins or more, currently that leaves 13 playoff spots available for potentially 16 six-win teams to fight for. But by the end of this week, there may not even be that many wildcard spots available. So, for G-P it’s simple. If the Highlanders beat Pigeon Forge, they’ll save a lot of nail-biting.

MLB HARDBALL: WORLD SERIES

Ross, Giants ready for Lee in World Series By BEN WALKER AP Baseball Writer SAN FRANCISCO — Buster Posey, Pablo Sandoval and the rest of the San Francisco Giants can study the scouting reports and videotape all they want, trying to find the secret to getting a hit against Cliff Lee. Or, they can just ask Cody Ross. Because many years ago, before he blossomed into the MVP of the NL championship series, Ross was a struggling rookie with the Detroit Tigers. Who happened to hit his first major league home run off Lee. A grand slam, at that. Of course, Lee was early in his career, too. He hardly had become Mr. Perfect in the postseason, the left-hander who will pose a giant challenge for San Francisco when it faces the Texas Rangers in Game 1 of the World Series on Wednesday night. “Cliff Lee, superhero,” summed up Sandoval. Watch Lee from the center-field camera and it’s difficult to tell exactly what makes him so dominant. David Price brings more heat. Andy Pettitte brought more October experience. But Lee beat them in the playoffs. Maybe it’s the way he throws any of his pitches for strikes on any count. At any speed, too. A reallife version of a video game — try to duplicate that in “Major League Baseball 2K10.” Lee is 7-0 with a 1.26 ERA in eight lifetime postseason starts heading into his matchup with two-time NL Cy Young winner Tim Lincecum in the opener. Lee went 3-0 this year in the AL playoffs, striking out 34 and walking just one. Lincecum and Lee pose an intriguing matchup of opposite artisans. The Giants’ lanky ace’s pitches have dizzying movement, while Lee is able to adjust his pinpoint control for an umpire’s strike zone. Lee’s severe strikeout-to-walk ratio has

Pigeon Forge’s season came to a close, however, after CAK’s dominant performance led to a 7-1 Lady Warriors victory. CAK will advance to the region tournament championship and have already earned a berth into the sectional tournament with the victory over Pigeon Forge. PREP SOCCER

Tim Lincecum prompted many to suggest the best strategy is to hit the first strike he throws, rather than risk falling behind in the count. A win over the Giants will tie Lee for the best start in postseason history — Orlando “El Duque” Hernandez, with all his quirky gyrations and deliveries, won his first eight decisions. To Lee, it’s all rather routine. In fact, there was a neat picture of him during the playoffs, yawning in the dugout at Yankee Stadium. Sure doesn’t look like someone pitching in huge games. “I don’t really look at it like that,” Lee said a few days ago. “Some people might, I don’t feel any more pressure.” Lee has been equally perfect against the Giants — three starts, three wins and a 1.13 ERA. He last faced them in 2009 in his first start after being traded from Cleveland to Philadelphia, and breezed at AT&T Park. See WORLD SERIES, Page A10

Lady Tigers season comes to a close By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer

KNOXVILLE — Once again, the Pigeon Forge Lady Tigers soccer team saw its season come to a close against the Christian Academy of Knoxville Lady Warriors, this time by a 7-1 final in a first-round region tournament match in Knoxville on Tuesday night. “I thought my girls played really hard, and my seniors and everybody stepped up,” said Pigeon Forge coach Billy Moseley, following Tuesday’s loss. “But it’s hard when you don’t have a feeder program at your school to come in and play teams like (CAK), especially these private schools. “(The private schools) can pick up talent from anywhere, and that makes it really tough. They get some of the best players around, and it’s hard to compete against them. “I’ve played against CAK ever since I started coaching in ‘99, and they’ve put me out of many sub-states, and now they’re putting me out of the region. It’s just hard to get past them ..., and they have an excellent program. They beat us, and I wish them the best of luck. “But it’s getting really hard for a public school to play against private schools.”

The Lady Tigers hung tough with the well-oiled CAK machine for the first 20 minutes of the contest, outshooting the Lady Warriors in that span but coming up empty. CAK scored a goal about halfway through the first half and added two more in the closing moments to take a commanding 3-0 lead at intermission. CAK continued to wear down the Lady Tigers and ran the score up to

7-0 in the second half. But Pigeon Forge senior Kelsey Brooks scored her final high school goal on a breakaway with 3:03 in regulation to make it the final. The shot came on a sweet play that saw Cassie Privett pass to Autumn Wilkinson, who then fed Brooks for the score. chitchcock@themountainpress.com

SCHS freshman QB Luke Manning (10) returns an interception for a score against the Seymour Eagles earlier this season. FRESHMAN GRIDIRON

SCHS freshmen finish perfect KNOXVILLE — The Sevier County High School Smoky Bears freshman football team finished its perfect season with another high-octane performance Tuesday night in a 48-28 shoot-out win over the South-Doyle Cherokees freshmen team. The Bears finished the season with an unblemished 9-0 record, and once again it was quarterback Luke Manning who led the Purple and White to victory, scoring six touchdowns in the win. He threw for three, rushed for two and returned an interception for another score. The game was a battle for the first two quarters of play, but Sevier County pulled away from the Cherokees in the second half. Manning got things going with a 20-yard TD pass to Logan Brett, who

If they lose, however, things will get dicey for them because G-P is weak on the top TSSAA tiebreaker, which is games against teams with overall winning records. G-P currently has three such games. Currently, Pigeon Forge is in a battle for a wildcard spot with 11 other teams that could potentially finish the season with five wins. And based on this week’s total of 18 wildcard spots, there are currently seven playoff spots available for potential five-win teams to fight for. For Pigeon Forge, it’s lose against G-P and go home, or win and hope the cards fall right. The good news for Pigeon Forge is that of the six teams currently with four wins, four of them this week are playing opponents with winning records and another is also playing a four-win team from a different classification. That

South-Doyle responded immediately, however, and returned the ensuing kickoff for a score. The two-point try failed, but SCHS’s lead had been cut to 7-6. Manning got the Bears back in front late in the first when he took an option keeper four yards to the end zone. The kick failed, but Sevier County led 13-6. The Cherokees got their first lead of the night early in the second quarter with a 25-yard aerial score and a successful two-point try, making 14-13 S-D. Manning answered immediately for See SCHS FRESHMEN, Page A10

bodes well for the Tigers in that group. However, the bad news for Pigeon Forge is that of the six teams currently with five wins, four of them are playing teams with losing records. That’s not so good news for the Orange and Black, because most likely those four five-win teams will pick up their sixth win of the season, knocking the current number of potential wildcard spots down to just three to fight for. Another good piece of news for the Tigers is that they have a strong first tie breaker. Of the 12 teams that can potentially finish the season with five wins, just three of those teams have played more winning teams than the Tigers, who currently have five and will add another to their total when they play G-P on Thursday. Good luck to both teams, and here’s to a clean, hardhitting contest. Thursday night should be fun in Pigeon Forge.

After the Sylvania 300 at the New Hampshire Motor Speedway, Clint Bowyer’s car was found to be outside the allowable measurements. As a result, NASCAR levied a heavy fine and suspension against the team’s crew chief and car chief and they hammered the driver and car owner Richard Childress with points reductions. However, when the results for that race are found, Bowyer is still listed as the winner. On the opposite end of the spectrum, this past Saturday night at the 411 Motor Speedway in Seymour, Tennessee there was a somewhat similar situation. At the end of the O’Reilly’s Steel-Head Nationals, driver Bobby Giffin crossed the finish line first. However, second place finisher Ryan King put up the necessary money and protested the winning car. When Giffin refused to have his car inspected, King was declared the winner. Giffin was denied the win and all prize money. The results of the race made it look as if he was never there. So, which solution is the best way to deal with cars found outside the rules? Is it best to allow the driver who crosses the finish line first to keep a win but hammer him after the fact with penalties? Or, is it best to simply pretend as though

So which is more important, the fans knowing who won the race before they leave or making sure the race winner was within the rules?

SEC GRIDIRON

SC focused on Vols, not SEC East By JEFFREY COLLINS Associated Press COLUMBIA, S.C. — South Carolina keeps creeping closer to a first division title since joining the Southeastern Conference 18 years ago, but Gamecocks coach Steve Spurrier isn’t ready to focus on that yet. If South Carolina beats Tennessee this weekend and a few other things fall into place, including a Georgia win over Florida, the Gamecocks could play for a spot in the SEC title game the next week at home against Arkansas and not have everything hinge on the trip the following week to take on the Gators in Gainesville, a place they’ve never won. But Spurrier and South Carolina fans have seen things fall apart before. In the past three years, the Gamecocks have gone 4-11 in their final five games of the regular season. “We’ve been 5-2 a bunch of times, as we all know,”

Spurrier said. “Whether or not we can finish strongly remains to be seen.” The Gamecocks should get a critical piece of their offense back Saturday. Spurrier said leading rusher freshman Marcus Lattimore’s sprained ankle should be healed enough for him to get significant playing time, if not the start. Fitting a topsy-turvy year for the SEC East, the teams in this year’s Tennessee-South Carolina game are coming from different directions in the standings. These aren’t the typical Vols, trying to stay in the SEC East race. Instead, they are 0-4 in the SEC, coming off a pair of 41-14 losses to Georgia and Alabama. The Gamecocks are on top of the division at 3-2 and are a couple of fourth quarter meltdowns away from even bigger things. But Tennessee has the team’s full attention this week. After all, it was less than two weeks ago the

Gamecocks followed up a win over than No.1 Alabama with their first loss in more than a decade to Kentucky. “Just thinking about that Kentucky game puts a bitter taste in our mouths and we don’t want to experience that again,” wide receiver Tori Gurley said. “We’re supposed to beat a team, then we need to go out there and steamroll them.” And while Spurrier is repeating warnings about collapses in seasons before, he also thinks this year’s team is a little different. “I don’t sense we’ve got as many goof-off type guys as we used to have around here. We don’t have too many,” Spurrier said. “I think our players understand that, if we can improve, there’s some things that we can achieve that haven’t been done before.” South Carolina also had solid offensive weapons. Along with Lattimore, the Gamecocks also have quarterback Stephen Garcia, who

is completing an SEC-best 72.1 percent of his passes, and Alshon Jeffery, who leads the league at seven catches and 121 yards receiving per game. “The formula on any good offense is great runner, great receivers and a quarterback who’s playing really well,” Tennessee coach Derek Dooley said. “And they’ve got all three.” With only a month left in the season, the SEC East is starting to shake out. South Carolina and Florida are the only teams left that control their own destiny. The Gators play Georgia this weekend, and if the Bulldogs win and Vanderbilt loses to Arkansas, then the Gamecocks could clinch the SEC East with a win Nov. 6 against the Razorbacks. Otherwise, it could come down to South Carolina’s game Nov. 13 at Florida. The Gamecocks are 1-17 against the Gators since joining the SEC and are 0-12 all time in Gainesville.

“Weather and clubhouse and the bullpens” are different, he said. “Once you get on the mound, it’s 60 feet, 6 inches and you’ve still got a professional hitter in there trying to do damage off of you. To me, that doesn’t really matter that much.” Several of the Giants have faced Lee many times. Juan Uribe is 11 for 37 (.297) with two homers against him. Jose Guillen is 9 for 25 (.360) with two homers. Aaron Rowand is 7 for 25 (.280) with four doubles and a home run. Aubrey Huff is 5 for 19 (.263). Rowand is willing to give any advice he can. “You can watch video. You can talk to them about what his out pitches are, what he likes to do when he’s ahead, and with runners on,” he said. Then there’s Ross. Ross had played a handful of games in the majors and had only two career hits when he faced Lee on Sept. 2, 2003. Ross struck out looking his first time up, but got more than even in his next at-bat, launching the first grand slam ever allowed by the young Cleveland lefty. The game was memorable for Ross because of something else. In the late innings, he tripped over first base beating out a bunt, tore his knee, was carted off the field and done for the season. Both Ross and Lee have come quite a way since then. They haven’t faced each other since the slam, either. Ross promises his team will be ready for baseball’s No. 1 postseason ace, having already solved the supposedly unbeatable Roy Halladay in the NLCS opener. “It was the Halladay show a week ago after he threw the no-hitter against the Reds,” Ross said. “We’re not surprising anybody, believe me. Everybody knows how good our pitching staff is. But I think we prefer for everyone to talk about everybody else.”

Vols QB Matt Simms being treated for knee sprain KNOXVILLE — Tennessee starting quarterback Matt Simms says he will play against South Carolina, even after spraining his left knee. The junior says he hurt his knee on a run during

the second quarter of the Volunteers’ 41-10 loss to Alabama. He returned during the third quarter but was eventually replaced by Tyler Bray after taking another hit. Simms has been receiv-

ing extra treatment this week and likely will wear a brace on Saturday but is still fully participating in practice with the Vols. Coach Derek Dooley says he does not know yet if he will have Bray

take snaps against the Gamecocks. Bray earned playing time against the Crimson Tide even before Simms was hurt because of strong performances in practice.

er long kickoff return for six point. The two-point try failed, but the Bears lead was trimmed to 21-20. But that’s as close as it would get the rest of the night. Manning scored three-unanswered touchdowns before the half. The first was a 50-yard post pattern to Whaley, the second was a 60-yard quarterback

scramble, and the third was a 55-yard interception return. Sutton made 2-of-3 PAT kicks, making it 41-20 at the break. The Bears picked up their final score of the night when Manning connected again with Whaley in the third quarter, this time 25 yards to paydirt. Sutton’s kick made it 48-20 SCHS. The Cherokees made it the

eventual final with a 35-yard TD pass coming on a reverse pass play. S-D scored the twopoint try to cut the SCHS edge to 20 points, too little, too late for the Cherokees. Sevier County’s Patrick Trentham had a big fourthquarter fumble recovery, and Joseph Hayes had a fourthquarter interception to kill two potential S-D scoring drives.

TWRC to set new fishing rules NASHVILLE — The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission will set the 2011 sport fish regulations during its meeting Oct. 27-28 at Pickwick Landing State Park. The TWRC was presented the 2011 sport fish proposals at its August and September meetings by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. Among the proposed changes this year are the removal of special trout regulations in Dale Hollow Reservoir with the proposals to be the same as statewide regulations. Changes to trout fishing on the Hiwassee River include the removal of the 14 inch length limit on brown trout and eliminate the Quality Trout Fishing Area from the entire trout zone (from the Apalachia Powerhouse downstream to the L&N railroad bridge at Reliance). Other changes would include the implementation of a delayed harvest regulation for Hiwassee (from Apalachia Powerhouse downstream to the L&N railroad bridge at Relianceentire trout zone) and a no harvest, artificial lures only from Oct. 1-Feb. 28 and March 1-Sept. 30. The trout creel limit is seven trout (all species combined) only two may be brown trout. Changes proposed on South Holston Reservoir are being made to match Virginia regulations for the reciprocal agreement. They include no harvest of white bass, changing the catfish creel limit to 20 per day; only one of which may be over 34 inches, reduce bluegill creel limit to 50 per day and reduce the number of limb lines from 25 to 15. The agency will present a pair of rule amendments to establish a $10 non-refundable application fee for computerized quota hunts for deer, turkey and Wildlife Management Areas. Currently, TWRA already requires a non-refundable fee of $10 for the Elk Quota

Hunt and the Waterfowl Quota Hunt. This rule amendment will not affect Sportsman License holders, (including Annual and Lifetime Sportsman License holders, and persons possessing an Annual Senior Citizen Permit, Type 167), who will not be charged an application fee. In other agenda items, the agency will present a resolution for TWRC consideration that will emphasize the future status of wild hogs and give guidance to the TWRA in the control of this species. Also, a presentation will be made on the public dove field program. The annual awards for

Advice

Mother fears daughter could be at risk due to bad hygiene

Zits

Blondie

Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: My 19-year-old daughter came home for the summer after her first year of college. When I did her laundry, I couldn’t help noticing there were no panties. I was stunned when my daughter told me that she and many other girls at school had stopped wearing panties altogether. I asked if her clothes weren’t getting ruined by staining from natural secretions, and she said they wear tampons. Annie, I recall a lot of news reports about toxic shock syndrome. Women were getting it from wearing tampons without changing them frequently enough. Could my daughter be endangering herself? -- Worried Mom of Britney Spears Wannabe Dear Worried: We contacted J. Douglas Van Arsdale, M.D., Associate Clinical Professor, Dept. of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Northwestern Memorial Hospital. Here is his response: Dear Worried Mom: The abrasive nature of pants, particularly if they are tight, would not make this a comfortable endeavor. However, chronically wearing a tampon may increase the risk of minor vaginal wall abrasions, and thereby increase the risk of HIV infection. Also, the absorbent nature of tampons would decrease lubrication. A more dramatic concern is toxic shock syndrome. This is a rare event most often associated with superabsorbent tampons that have been left in place for extended periods of time. But one can never absolutely rule out this possi-

bility. So I would recommend the following: Have an exam by a gynecologist to be sure that she is healthy and has no sexually transmitted diseases. Make sure she knows how to use a condom and uses one every time she has sex. She may also need a lubricant. Be certain that she has been vaccinated for HPV. If she must go commando, she should use a low-absorbent tampon, and even then there may be a very low risk of toxic shock. And most importantly, stay away from the paparazzi. Dear Annie: I’ve been married to “Bob” for three years. I love him dearly and get along with my in-laws. The problem is, he insists we spend every holiday with his family, which is stressful for me. I don’t handle large crowds well, and at these holiday functions, there are at least 30 people crammed into a house with three bedrooms and two bathrooms. We always stay at his folks’ place for several days, and I am constantly uncomfortable. I asked Bob if he would consider celebrating at least one holiday by ourselves, but he won’t hear of it. He says his parents would be hurt. Thanksgiving will be here shortly, and I am already dreading it. Can you help? -- Holiday Blues Dear Holiday: Putting up with the inlaws at family gather-

ings is part of marriage. Although you shouldn’t have to spend every holiday with Bob’s family, if it is only a few days in November and December, please try to do your best. Having young children often provides an excuse not to travel so much. Right now, start with a compromise. If you can afford it, insist on staying at a hotel instead of at his parents’ home, at least part of the time. This will give you some privacy and may provide you with the equanimity to tolerate the rest. Dear Annie: Thank you for telling “Peg” that not all sex offenders are a threat to others. In our small town, there is one person on the sex offender registry. During a party at his house, he stepped outside to urinate in the backyard. It was dark, but there was a child in the yard next door who apparently saw him and told his parents. The young man was convicted of being a sex offender, even though he was unaware of the child’s presence. So not all registered sex offenders have sexually molested anyone, nor will they. -Small Town Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

n a t i o n / w o rl d brie f s Police: Mom killed 4 newborns

READING, Pa. (AP) — A woman who secretly conceived several children through an extramarital affair killed at least four of her newborns, then kept their remains in coolers or encased in concrete in her closet until family members found them this year, authorities said Monday. Michele Kalina, 44, of Reading, hid at least six pregnancies from her husband and longtime boyfriend, according to officials in Berks County, where a homicide charge was filed against the home-health aide. DNA tests show the bones found in a locked closet came from five babies, at least four of whom were born alive, authorities said. The boyfriend fathered three and possibly four of the victims. Tests on the fifth baby were inconclusive.

Former Hussein aide to hang

BAGHDAD (AP) — The international face of Saddam Hussein’s regime, Tariq Aziz, was sentenced to death by hanging Tuesday for persecuting Shiites just over three months after the Americans transferred him to Iraqi government custody. Iraqi High Tribunal spokesman Mohammed AbdulSahib did not say when the 74-year-old former foreign minister would go to the gallows. Aziz has 30 days to launch an appeal. Aziz, the only Christian in Saddam’s mainly Sunni inner circle, was wearing a blue suit and sat alone in the court. He bowed his head and frequently grasped the handrail in front of him, as the judge read out the verdict.

Indonesian volcano erupts

MOUNT MERAPI, Indonesia (AP) — Indonesia’s most volatile volcano erupted Tuesday, after scientists warned that pressure building beneath its dome could trigger the most powerful eruption in years. A 2-month old baby reportedly died as panicked villagers fled the area. Up to 20 people were injured by hot ash spewed from Mount Merapi, said an AP reporter who witnessed them being taken away for treatment. Some 11,400 villagers who live on the 9,737-foot -high mountain were urged to evacuate, but only those within four miles of the crater were forced by authorities to do so. Most of those who fled were the elderly and children. Some adults said they decided to stay to tend to homes and farms on the fertile slopes. There are fears that the current activity could foreshadow a much more destructive explosion in the coming weeks or months, though it is possible, too, that the volcano will settle back down after a slow, long period of letting off steam.

Indonesia tsunami kills 113

PADANG, Indonesia (AP) — Rescuers battled rough seas Tuesday to reach remote Indonesian islands pounded by a 10-foot tsunami that swept away homes, killing at least 113 people. Scores more were missing and information was only beginning to trickle in from the sparsely populated surfing destination, so casualties were expected to rise.

Home sales up in September

WASHINGTON (AP) — Sales of previously occupied homes rose last month after the worst summer for the housing market in more than a decade. And fears over flawed foreclosure documents could keep buyers on the sidelines in the final months of the year. Sales grew 10 percent in September to a seasonally adjusted annual rate of 4.53 million, the National Association of Realtors said Monday. Home sales have declined 37.5 percent from their peak annual rate of 7.25 million in September 2005. They have risen from July’s rate of 3.84 million, which was the lowest in 15 years.

Haslam company bans firearms in lots By ERIK SCHELZIG Associated Press NASHVILLE — Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Haslam’s support for requiring businesses to allow their workers to store guns in vehicles parked on company property conflicts with the policy in place for the 20,000 employees at a chain of truck stops his family owns. Company spokeswoman Cynthia Moxley told The Associated Press on Tuesday that Knoxvillebased Pilot Flying J prohibits workers from storing firearms in their vehicles at both its travel centers and corporate offices. Haslam said after a speech in Nashville on Tuesday that he was unaware of the policy. “The leadership of that company made a decision on that,� he said. “I never had a role in even talking to them about it. I didn’t even know what the rule was.� Haslam was president of Pilot until he was elected Knoxville mayor in 2003. The company was founded by his father Jim Haslam and is now run by his brother Jimmy Haslam. The candidate maintains an unspecified stake in the company with annual revenues of $20 billion, but won’t detail how much he earns from Pilot. Efforts to repeal a state law that lets companies decide whether to forbid employees from keeping guns in their cars while they work has pitted advocates like the National Rifle Association and Tennessee Firearms Association against business interests like the Tennessee Chamber of Commerce and Memphis-based Fedex Corp., whose lobbyists in committee hearings have argued that the gun ban is a workplace safety issue. Haslam caused some confusion on the campaign trail Monday when he first said it should be

Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Haslam talks with Patty Wise during a campaign stop on Monday in Springfield. up to employers to decide about gun policies on their property, but later clarified that business owners’ rights shouldn’t extend to firearms stored in locked cars. Haslam’s gun positions have come under closer scrutiny since he told the Tennessee Firearms Association last week he would sign into law efforts to end a requirement for people to obtain state-issued permits in order to carry handguns in public. The Republican said his personal preference is to maintain the current requirements for the state’s about 300,000 permit holders, but that he would defer to the will of the Legislature on the matter. Haslam, who does not own a gun, said he also supports a new state law allowing handgun carry permit holders to be armed in bars and restaurants that serve alcohol. The measure has been subject of two overrides of gubernatorial vetos in the last two years. Democrat Mike McWherter has seized on Haslam’s positions on guns, calling it “irresponsible� because it will

Rapper ordered to prison

ATLANTA (AP) — Federal authorities have ordered the rapper T.I. to report directly to a federal prison in Arkansas by Nov. 1 to start serving his 11 month prison sentence. U.S. Marshal Beverly Harvard on Tuesday ordered T.I., whose real name is Clifford Harris Jr., to report to the Forrest City low-security prison where he served parts of an earlier 10 month stint on federal weapons charges. A federal judge in Atlanta sentenced the rapper this month to serve another 11 months in prison for breaking his federal probation after he was arrested on Sept. 1 in Los Angeles on drug charges.

ises, but he wants to leave it up to each business to decide for itself. “Bill Haslam is for letting anyone bring a gun to work unless they work for his oil company, in which case they can’t,� McWherter spokesman Shelby White said in an e-mail. “He’s all over the map on a fundamental public safety issue.�
