Local man’s innocence claimed Attorney says DNA doesn’t match in 1985 Ohio kidnap, rape, murder By JEFF FARRELL Staff Writer The attorney representing a local man who was arrested this summer and charged in a 1985 murder says his DNA does not match DNA taken from the crime scene. Walter Edward Zimbeck, who was living on Navaho Lane, was arrested in July and charged with the kidnapping, rape and murder of a 14-year-old girl in Swanton, Ohio. Zimbeck had been living

in this area for some time; Sevier County Sheriff Ron Seals said Ohio law enforcement offiZimbeck cials contacted him last year to say there was a person of interest in regard to one of their investigations living in Sevier County. Officers from Ohio came to the area several times

to interview Zimbeck and collect evidence, including DNA, Seals said. Zimbeck’s defense attorney told an Ohio television station this week that DNA from her client did not match evidence from the crime scene. “I’ve never been more convinced in my 10 years of law practice that this man is innocent. He should be released from jail based on the evidence that has finally come forth,” attorney Amber VanGunten told WNWO,

an NBC affiliate in Toledo, Ohio. Zimbeck had dated the victim, and authorities focused on him as a suspect early in the investigation, according to the station. VanGunten told The Knoxville NewsSentinel that interest waned after he cooperated with investigators and passed a polygraph test. She told the Sentinel police began looking at him again after a tip from his estranged wife; the couple is in the middle of a divorce

and contesting custody of their 2-year-old daughter. She told WNWO she believes the charges against Zimbeck should be dropped immediately. “I’ve never been more convinced in my 10 years of law practice that this man is innocent. He should be released from jail based on the evidence that has finally come forth.” For the time being, however, Zimbeck remains in an Ohio jail. n

Future Sevier County industry puts ‘I’ in I-40 Newton: New industry should be near interstate By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer The director of the Sevier County Economic Development Council said Wednesday the effort to find new sites for future industrial growth has

zeroed in on two potential areas, both with access to Interstate 40. County leaders have determined in recent months they need to find new areas for such development after the deal to bring Lisega Inc. here nearly collapsed while the company struggled to find a workable site. Even before that, though, there remained only about 35 acres of buildable land in the county’s existing

industrial parks. “For all intents and purposes we are out of industrial property,” Allen Newton told the group’s board of directors during their monthly meeting. “It is important for us to be by the interstate. It’s very, very important.” The push forward on finding a suitable site comes at a time when Newton has begun seeing a renewed interest from businesses looking to

locate in Sevier County. “We now have two manufacturing prospects that are talking to me,” Newton said. “Things are starting to pick up a little bit. We’ve been pleased.” Both the sites now being eyed by council officials are near the property Lisega eventually settled on east of Exit 407 and both are near the interstate. They also include several parcels and may add up to as much as 170 acres of new

Newton has scoped out the properties with the help of Ed Cooper, a staffer with the Tennessee Valley Authority (TVA), which provides free assistance to communities looking to purchase new industrial sites. Cooper said he has looked at both the properties being considered and believes See I-40, Page A5

His son said people still talk about things his father did for them, whether it was helping a veteran to get benefits or other accomplishments. “That was his life, was a life of service,� Bryan said. Harold Atchley — brother to Bill Atchley — was longtime director of Atchley Funeral Home, served in county government and helped start the county hospital. His daughter, Patsy Wallace, said he believed in giving back to the community he loved. “My father and my mother felt like they were the most blessed people to be Sevier Countians,� she said. Cantwell was a founding member of the board of directors for Citizens National Bank. He helped to start the Boys and Girls Club of the Great Smoky Mountains and the Robert F.

Dolly joining Tony Blair for BBC series on faith

LONDON (AP) — Former Prime Minister Tony Blair and country music singer Dolly Parton will be featured in a new BBC series exploring how faith shapes lives. Nobel Peace Prize winner Archbishop Desmond Tutu also will be interviewed on the program, which explores the role religious belief plays in the lives of high-profile figures. Blair will talk about his conversion to Catholicism, while Parton will explain how she balances her faith with her flirtatious stage image. Tutu, who has long campaigned against injustice in South Africa, jokes in his segment that he would like to ask God, “whose side are you on?� “All the interviewees come from very different backgrounds, but what binds them together is the fact that, although their faith has been challenged, they’ve emerged with strong spiritual beliefs,� said Fern Britton, the show’s presenter.

Members of the Duggar familty from TV’s “18 Kids and Counting� will be part of Cowboy Church services Sunday at Country Tonite.

Duggars to attend Cowboy Church From Submitted Reports PIGEON FORGE — Smoky Mountain Cowboy Church will host the Duggar family from Springdale, Ark., at the 10 a.m. service on Sunday at Country Tonite theater. The 20-member family group is in Pigeon Forge to help the city kick off the 20th annual Winterfest.

The family is probably best known for its TLC channel reality show “18 Kids and Counting.� The Duggars’ lives are chronicled on the popular program. The Duggars have appeared on on numerous TV programs and in various magazine and newspapers. The Duggars are Christians who believe children are a blessing from

God. Jim Bob and Michelle Duggar were married July 21, 1984. Their first child was born four years later. Smoky Mountain Cowboy Church is held each Sunday at Country Tonite. There is no admission charge. Through the Internet and satellite radio, the service is beamed around the world.

‘Be a Santa to a Senior’ program under way From Submitted Reports An annual program to deliver Christmas gifts to needy seniors is under way. Area retailers, along with agencies that serve older adults, have partnered with a senior-care service to make sure that isolated seniors receive gifts and companionship through the Be a Santa to a Senior program. The local office of Home Instead Senior Care sponsors this program. The program will run through Nov. 23. Local nonprofit organizations and health care companies identify needy and isolated seniors in the community and provide those names to Home Instead Senior Care. Ornaments with the seniors’ gift wishes then go up on Christmas trees at various locations.

Holiday shoppers can pick up an ornament, buy items on the list and return them unwrapped to the tree location, along with the ornament attached. Home Instead Senior Care then enlists volunteers to collect, wrap and deliver the gifts. Trees are up at CVS Pharmacy in Sevierville and Fort Sanders Sevier County Senior Center in Sevierville. For more information call (423) 587-5800 or 453-4488. “There is a tremendous need right here in our own communities. No senior should be alone through the Thanksgiving and Christmas season. Sadly, that’s how it is year after year for many seniors. Be a Santa to a Senior is just a small way to reach out to these lonely and financially challenged seniors, to show them that people

really do care about them,� said Reed O’Brien, owner of the Home Instead Senior Care franchise serving Hamblen, Sevier, Jefferson, Cocke and Grainger counties. Last year, the Be a Santa to a Senior program delivered Christmas gifts to about 400 seniors throughout the five counties. “It’s quite humbling when you receive a list of gift needs for things like food, soap and toilet paper. But it’s incredibly rewarding to see how the

community responds so generously,� O’Brien said. “Most people purchase more than what the seniors are requesting. Many knit hats, gloves, scarves and blankets and donate them as gifts. Teachers involve their students who help purchase gifts and make cards. One child wrote, ‘Even though we don’t know you, we love you very much.’ It was a very moving moment to find that and realize how this child was going to touch a senior’s life.�

Judge wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t act in voting machine case NASHVILLE (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A Nashville judge is giving the state time to implement a state law requiring paper trails for voting machines for next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s elections but said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sensitive to issues raised by plaintiffs who sought a temporary injunction in the case. Chancellor Russell Perkins ruled Thursday in a suit brought by advocacy group Common Cause against Secretary of State Tre Hargett over Hargettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s refusal to immediately implement the Tennessee Voter Confidence Act. The lawsuit filed in Nashville in October asked the judge to order Hargett and election officials to begin putting the optical scan voting machines into operation. Perkins refused to issue the injunction, saying â&#x20AC;&#x153;the relief sought is sweeping and extraordinaryâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;would really be out of bounds.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;But that doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t excuse the defendants from complying with the statute,â&#x20AC;? Perkins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The court is concerned about some of the slow progress that appears to be associated with this particular Act.â&#x20AC;? Hargett has argued that no machines meet 2005 standards envisioned by the law. But the Common Cause lawsuit claimed that the law would allow voting machines meeting the most recent federal standards from 2002. Plaintiff attorney Gerard Stranch said he was disappointed the judge didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t grant the injunction, but said heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pleased that the court noted the law does not require use of the 2005 standards alone, but that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the 2002 standards are available and could be implemented prior to the November 2010 election.â&#x20AC;?

Also present was Jim Bobâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mother Mary, who moved in with the family after the February death of her husband J.L. Thursday would have been the coupleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 49th wedding anniversary and the family presented Mary with a vase of roses to mark the day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This is kind of a day for us to remember him and honor him,â&#x20AC;?

The couple said the family has fallen in love with the area because it caters to folks like them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Pigeon Forge is a very family- and faith-oriented destination,â&#x20AC;?

each could work, despite concerns about hills, the need to extend infrastructure and a lack of appropriate road access at each site. The Mountain Press has opted not to disclose the locations of the two sites at this time since there are no firm plans for purchasing either one. Meanwhile, as that discussion progresses, Lisega has begun moving forward on getting ready to move to its new site, something company officials hope to be able to do as early as next year, Newton said. County leaders have secured state grants to help in bringing East Dumplin Valley Road up to the standards required for industrial access and extending infrastructure like water, sewer and electricity to the site. Knoxville engineering firm Barge, Waggoner, Sumner & Canon is currently doing engineering on the road, which will have to be widened to 12-foot lanes with 4-foot gravel shoulders on each side. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s taking a long time, but it is going,â&#x20AC;?

Legislators pan $70M biofuels project NASHVILLE (AP) — Some state lawmakers say they were misled in approving $70 million for an initiative to turn switchgrass into ethanol and have delayed approval on part of the project. The Fiscal Review Committee, a joint House-Senate panel, on Wednesday heard a report on the University of Tennessee’s Biofuels Initiative that said the project cannot be selfsufficient as originally promised. The committee delayed its approval of an

amendment to a contract on operation of the facility that involves about $11 million of the funding. Sen. Bill Ketron, a Murfreesboro Republican who chairs the committee, said the project was approved at a time when the state was “flush with cash.” Now, the state faces major revenue shortfalls with prospects of state employee layoffs and more budget cuts coming next year. “This program may need re-evaluation,” Ketron said. “We’re going

to have to turn over every rock to balance this next budget.” The report was presented by Jim White, the executive director of the committee’s staff, and included videos of officials describing the plan in 2007, when it was approved at the urging of Gov. Phil Bredesen. Those statements were contrasted to the status of the project now, which has undergone changes including a new developer and a scaling down of the expected production.

The pilot project refinery in rural Vonore, in East Tennessee, is scheduled to open next month. The original projection of a facility producing 5 million gallons of ethanol per year was based on Department of Energy estimates for the size needed to be commercially viable. Under the current plan, the research refinery will produce about 250,000 gallons of ethanol, enough to determine whether the processes will work for a full-size refinery.

U.S. reforms unlike those in Canada

AUSTIN, Texas — A guy walks up to you in a bar here and asks, “Are you a Republican, conservative or independent?” You can’t tell if he’s kidding. After all, this is the most liberal place in the state. It’s also where I first heard about Shona Holmes, the Canadian lady. Holmes, a 45-year-old citizen of a place called Waterdown in Ontario, has become the Joan of Arc of the battle against health care reform in the United States. As she tells it, OHIP, the acronym for the “free” (taxes pay for it) Canadian health care system, sentenced her to burn at the stake by putting her on a waiting list for analysis and treatment of what she calls a “brain tumor.” Actually, it was a benign cyst near the brain. The technical name is Rathke’s cleft cyst, a fluid-filled sac that grows near the pituitary gland. It can be painful and affect vision, but it is not life-threatening. A group called Patients United Now — “people just like you,” says its Web site — is sponsoring television commercials featuring Shona Holmes in all 50 states. (I don’t know if he is just like me, but an industrialist named David Koch is the principal financier of the Holmes campaign.) She is traveling our country making speeches and television appearances comparing the Canadian system to the Inquisition, saying she would have died waiting to see a doctor in her country. Instead, she says, she mortgaged her house, borrowed from neighbors, crossed the border and had the cyst removed at the Mayo Clinic in Arizona. Cost: $95,000. She seems to be, right now, the most hated woman in Canada. Newspapers are defending OHIP; bloggers are saying if she doesn’t like Canada she can (and should) get out. A few voices are calling for Holmes to be deported. The Ottawa Citizen called her “disgusting.” Canadians apparently love their system. A columnist for the Calgary Sun, Stephen Lautens, attended a conservative forum in Florida and sent back this report: “When hearing the horrors of the Canadian health-care system being described last weekend, all I could do was wince. ... ‘Would (you) like to speak to a real, live Canadian about our health care,’ I asked (two ladies in a bar)? “’Can you pick your own doctor?’ was the first question. ‘Because we hear the government assigns you a doctor in Canada.’ “You indeed pick your own doctor, I assured them. ... It was also not true, I said, that it takes months to see your doctor. Mine complains she doesn’t see me enough. There are gaps in our system, I confessed, where there are unacceptable wait lists for some kinds of surgery -- hips and knees and other things in demand. “’What’s your health-care premium?’ they wanted to know. They quoted theirs as being a couple thousand dollars a month. Their jaws dropped when I told them there really isn’t one and everyone is covered from birth. “At this point, a small crowd had gathered around me at the bar to hear the Canadian tell his magical tale of health-care coverage. I told the story of breaking my shoulder in a fall, having one of the best shoulder specialists in Canada put it back together, a few days at the hospital and nine months of physiotherapy. The cost? “Thirty-five dollars, because the sling I went home in wasn’t covered.” The “disgusting” thing from an American perspective is the low level of the health-care debate. Or is it the gullibility of millions of Americans? The Senate Republican leader, Mitch McConnell, along with Fox News, has used the Shona Holmes story to attack health-care reform. True or not, it is interesting stuff, except for one thing: The American reforms being discussed are not at all like the Canadian singlepayer system. So, Canadians, with longer, healthier lives, are yelling at Shona Holmes and laughing at us. — Richard Reeves, a presidential scholar and expert on six presidents, is the author of several books, including profiles of Richard Nixon and John Kennedy.

Standing tall Our national park has major economic impact on community The figures released last week by a researcher at Michigan State University are as impressive as the Great Smoky Mountains themselves. A survey of economic information from getaway communities around 391 national park units showed that our park puts all of the others to shame. Last year, the figures show, more than nine million visited the Great Smoky Mountain National Park, generating some $800 million in revenue for communities from Sevier County to Cherokee, N.C. Here’s what makes those figures so staggering: Grand Canyon National Park, perhaps even more famous than our park, was next highest, with little more than half the revenue at $423 million. Yellowstone generated $345 million, Blue Ridge Parkway $342 million and Yosemite $292 million. You like apples? Well, how do you like them apples? Pretty sweet, huh? How much of that $800 million is spent in Sevier isn’t clear, but the national park clearly is one of the top economic

drivers in the area. Who knows how many tourists come to visit the national park, then make a side trip to Dollywood, Cirque de Chine, the outlet malls or one of the many theaters or other attractions? Conversely, how many folks come for one or more of those attractions and take a side trip to the national park? According to, the national park is located within a twoday drive of half the nation’s population — making it accessible to roughly 150 million people. It’s certainly an advantage the western parks such as Grand Canyon, Yellowstone and Yosemite cannot boast. University of Tennessee Tourism Institute Director Steve Morse said that tourism, other attractions and the park bring about $1.5 billion in revenue to the area annually. And, he said, more that there are 14,500 jobs in the tourism industry in the getaway communities that otherwise wouldn’t exist. The popularity of Great Smoky Mountains National Park isn’t a prod-

uct soley of its location, although that certainly helps. Park Superintendent Dale Ditmanson has a first-rate staff that does a great job with its programs and is aggressive in procuring money for projects such as the $44 million in stimulus funds that will be used to improve roads, trailheads and campgrounds next spring, thus making its infrastructure modern and second to none. It also doesn’t hurt having an icon such as Dolly Parton as an ambassador for the park and an actor the magnitude of Knoxville’s David Keith, who was willing to volunteer his time to play President Franklin Roosevelt during the Gatlinburg Fourth of July Parade this year. That the national park produced $800 million in revenue for the region and is nearly twice the amount of its nearest peer is an amazing figure bordering on staggering. What is more important, however, is the impact it has on the local economy, not only in tourism dollars but also in the support jobs created.

Bears fans prepare for white out tonight Team faces big challenge against 8-seed BHS Bulldogs By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer SEVIERVILLE — The Sevier County High School Smoky Bears are ranked No.2 in the state, flying high with a 10-0 record, but in order to keep their season alive for another week, they’ll again have to do something they’ve done all year ... prove themselves. In an unusually hard first-round match-up for a No.1-seeded team, the Smoky Bears will have to avoid the bite of the Bearden Bulldogs (8-2) this Friday night at Lon C. Birchfield stadium. Powering an offense on a team that lost just two games this season — to No.1 Maryville and No.7 Farragut — is RB Devrin Young, an All-State stud who rushed for 1,208 yards and 12 TDs this season to go along with 137 receiving yards. “When you look at Bearden, you obviously hear and see Devrin

There are other capable Bearden players, with QB Kyle Riemer passing for more than 1,200 yards and nine TDs this season, but even if Sevier County’s defense limits the potent Bulldog offense, the Smoky Bears offense has got to play its part by scoring some points against the tough Bearden defense, which has allowed an average of just eight points in its eight wins. In regards to the Smoky Bear offense, Brewer hopes to see a repeat performance from last week’s Morristown East battle. “Last week, offensively we had zero three-andouts, and I thought that was terrific,” said the coach. “That’s the kind of performance we need again (tonight). “We’ve got to be able to possess the ball and put points on the board.” Although the Smoky Photo submitted Bears accomplished the Sevier County High School’s Chucky McDaniel, Alex Byrd and Jordan Whaley prepare shirts for 10-0 regular season — a the white out for Friday night’s game at SCHS.

Eagles’ excited about playing state’s top team By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor Seymour — The Seymour Eagles (4-6, 3-4 in District 2-AAA) know they have their work cut out for them tonight against the state’s No.1-ranked Tennessee High School Vikings. And that’s just the way the Eagles like it. “(The team’s mentality) has been great, just like all year,” coach Jim Moore said Thursday evening. “I guess for other teams in other situations it might mean something to be playing the No.1 team in the state, but heck, all year long we’ve been playing ranked teams in the state. This just happens to be the No.1-ranked.” Coach Moore has confidence in his squad and their ability to play with the big boys. “Sevier County, CAK, Morristown East, Morristown West, all those teams have been ranked in the state, so this is just another one.” In all of those contests except CAK, the Eagles were within 11 points, and two — Sevier County and Morristown West — could have gone Seymour’s way had just one play gone differently in the game. Last week against Morristown West, the Eagles played their always-stingy defense, allowing just eight points, but scored just three themselves. “Defensively we played really well,” Moore said. “We gave up one touchdown on a pick route, and we had a snapped punt that gave them two points and that was it. Offensively we weren’t consistent, but four of our bigger plays of the night were called back because of penalties.” Should the Eagles play the same sort of ball game on defense, they may stand

They run the ball well, they throw it well, they block well. Good play selection. They mix it up good. They’re just a well-coached football team that’s got some really good athletes. They’ve got a fullback/linebacker that may be the best we’ve seen this year.” The Vikings are also very good behind center. “Their quarterback has a very good arm, and it seems like he sits back

there and has 10 seconds to throw every ball he throws,” Moore said. “We’ve watched film after film and there’s no pressure on him, and somebody eventually comes open.” Should the defense get pressure, perhaps the Eagles’ defensive backs — with 12 picks already this year — can add to that total and set up a short field for the offense. Field position and keeping their vaunted defense off the field for as large chunks of time as possible will be keys to staying with a Tennessee High team that hasn’t allowed an opponent to finish within 15 points of them all season.

Sevier County High School’s Erin McMullen and Alex McCandless.

SCHS athletes tabbed finalists for High School Heisman Citizenship, charity top priorities for two of Bears’ best By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — Honoring scholarship, athletics and citizenship, the Wendy’s High School Heisman is one of the premier high school awards

that can be bestowed on a senior prep athlete. This year Sevier County High School has two of the 20 finalists for the state award. Senior cross country and track athlete Alex McCandless and senior soccer goalie and track runner Erin McMullen were both chosen as state finalists thanks to their dedication on the playing field, in the classroom and

in the community. Both are members of Beta Club and have leadership roles in the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and Teen Board at SCHS. Both make great grades in their classes, and both also strive to make Sevier County a better place. Between participating in food drives, coat drives and sponsoring needy See HEISMAN, Page A10

Local teams have interesting matchups in first round The regular season has finally passed, and, to be honest, all of our local teams did better than Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d originally expected. Sevier County rose to new heights with a perfect 10-0 regular season, GatlinburgPittman continued their streak of great teams, finishing 9-1 in a new, tougher district. Add to that Seymourâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s making the playoffs in their first-ever season playing in the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s highest regular-season classification, Pigeon Forgeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s surprise four-win season and The Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Academyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s continued success, and we were blessed with a lot of good football in Sevier County this year. But now itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to get down to business. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re talking about the playoffs. Two local teams get to host first-round games this week, while one team â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the Seymour Eagles â&#x20AC;&#x201D; has to hit the road. Sevier County hosts Bearden The Sevier County Smoky Bears, a No.1 seed in the 6A classification, drew perhaps the toughest first-round matchup of any 1-seed in the state football playoffs. The Bears will face the 8-2 Bearden Bulldogs and their all-state running back

Hopefully that advantage, coupled with G-Pâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s talent edge, will push the Highlanders to a comfortable victory. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Highlanders win 27-14

Sands, they have combined for 12 interceptions this season. The Seymour front seven also applies good pressure to opposing QBs, having combined for 33 sacks this year led by Cody Watson and Nick Smith with seven each, Keegan Newport with six, Hunter Crain with five and Wes White with four. Also, the Vikingsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; defense, while good, can definitely be scored on. Daniel Boone, a team Seymour held to 12, scored 26 on Tennessee. Four other schools scored at lead 17 against the undefeated Vikings. Still, the Eaglesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; offense has been inconsistent this season, and I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t see them getting right against the stateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top team. An upset here would be truly historical for the Seymour community, though. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Tennessee High wins 28-14 COUPON REQUIRED

G-P, SCHS have tough playoff roads ahead By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer Although the Sevier County High School Smoky Bears completed a perfect 10-0 season and the Gatlinburg-Pittman Highlanders were just one fourth-quarter kickoff return from accomplishing the same thing, excellent regular seasons did nothing to make things any easier in the playoffs for either squad. The Smoky Bears, playing in the 6A playoff bracket, have the top seven teams in the state â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and eight of the top 10 programs â&#x20AC;&#x201D; in their 16-team half of the playoff bracket. Five of the top nine teams in the state are in the Bearsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; eight-team bracket quadrant. The story is nearly the same for G-P, playing in the 3A playoff bracket. The Highlanders have six of the top eight teams in their 16-team half of the playoff bracket. Three of the top eight teams are in the Blue and Goldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s eight-team quadrant. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lord, yes, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tough half of the

children for Christmas, both SCHS seniors are heavily involved in charity and community service. Both residents of Sevierville, the two young adults have also served outside of the local area by participating in fourstraight summers of mission work with their church â&#x20AC;&#x201D; First Baptist Church of Sevierville. From spreading the Gospel in impoverished areas of Mississippi and New Mexico to pounding the pavement with door-to-door evangelism in the rough streets of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, the pair really light up talking about their work with their church youth group. McMullen and McCandless both credit their parents with pointing them in the right direction as children. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve grown up together and our families have always been involved doing stuff,â&#x20AC;? McCandless said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They always encouraged us to do extra things. And also, our youth group, we always take a mission trip every year, and Scott Carter, our youth pastor always encourages us to do community service things. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We realize that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really lucky,â&#x20AC;? McCandless continued. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have stable houses, stable environments at home, and how lucky we were to both have our biological parents. Something theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve taught us is that we need to give back and help people that donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have all those privileges.â&#x20AC;? The children of Eddie and Libby McCandless and Brian and Irene McMullen, Alex and Erin are now getting recognition for their diligent service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Erin called me and told me the results were online. I was really surprised, not only that I had gotten it, but that Erin and I both had, being from the same school,â&#x20AC;? McCandless said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That was really cool.â&#x20AC;? The state winners of the award will be selected this Saturday, and one male and one female from Tennessee will go on to compete to be the national title winner in New York City on Dec. 11. National finalists will be featured during a televised ceremony on ESPN2, and will receive a gold medal and $2,000 award for their high schools. From there one male and one female national winner will receive a Wendyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s High School Heisman trophy and Wendyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s will donate $10,000 to each winnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s respective high school. Additionally, the winners will be recognized during the collegiate Heisman Trophy broadcast on ESPN, Dec.12. Even if the two from SCHS donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t advance past the state finalist round, both have bright futures ahead as they prepare for college and their lives beyond. With a goal set on being a math teacher, McMullen is undecided where sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll attend college. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m still really unsure where I want to go to school,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I wanted to play soccer, Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to play at a very small college. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve visited some colleges like that, and those schools just arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the ones that would be right for

bracket,â&#x20AC;? said 38th-year G-P head football coach Benny Hammonds, referring to the Blue and Goldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s road to the 3A state championship hopes. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The two best teams may be on the same side of Nashville, because TSSAA has got the playoffs drawn up geographically, because theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re afraid theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll lose a penny if teams are too far apart when they play each other.â&#x20AC;? Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard to find anyone really in favor of the new TSSAA playoff system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Football coaches are going to play with whatever situation theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re faced with,â&#x20AC;? said 18th-year SCHS head football coach Steve Brewer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll tell you that (the state of Tennessee) had a perfect football playoff system as far as knowing who you were going to play and where you were going to play at, the match-ups. It was an excellent system. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m opposed to what we have now. I think itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very subjective in the hands of people, and we see the

me. I really like GardenerWebb University in North Carolina, thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the one Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m really looking at right now.â&#x20AC;? McCandless is also unsure of his future alma mater. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure where I want to go to college yet,â&#x20AC;? he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wherever I go I want to compete in track and cross country. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve visited a few different schools and applied to several, but I havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t really decided yet. I really donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t want to go too far away from home.â&#x20AC;? One thing he is certain of is his future career field. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year I accepted a call to ministry at our youth conference,â&#x20AC;? McCandless said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure what area of ministry thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be, but I know itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s some kind of full-time Christian service. You donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have to be behind the pulpit to be part of the ministry. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll just see where God leads me.â&#x20AC;?

confused results we got this past weekend. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Having said that, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the law of the land, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re going to line up and do our best. But certainly, I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t think this system compares to the system weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been under problem-free the past 28 to 30 years.â&#x20AC;? This new playoff system has eliminated a lot of easy first- and second-round playoff match-ups, at least in East Tennessee ... arguably the SEC of Tennessee prep football. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m sure people from different parts of the state would argue that,â&#x20AC;? Brewer said diplomatically. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But we play good football over here, and itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s obviously a challenge.â&#x20AC;? No.7 G-P will have to face potential match-ups against No.1 Alcoa, No.3 Polk County, No.4 CAK, No.5 Austin-East and No.8 Elizabethton just to get to the 3A state finals. The Blue and Gold will have to go through A-E and Elizabethton just to make the semi-finals. No.2 SCHS will have potential match-ups against No.1 Maryville,

No.3 Blackman, No.4 Oakland, No.5 Ooltewah, No.6 Riverdale, No.7 Farragut and No.9 McMinn County to reach the 6A championship ... and through Maryville, Ooltewah, Farragut and McMinn County just to reach the semis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Certainly, when you put teams of this caliber in a quadrant, anything can happen,â&#x20AC;? said Brewer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I think there will be some competitive football, and weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re looking forward to it. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited about finishing the regular season ranked No.2, because weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never finished that high. But the reason you cut your summer short and work out and prepare is to get to the playoffs, and when you get there, try to do something. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now there are 32 teams in the state vying for the top spot. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a really tough road, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll see if our kids are up to it. I believe they are.â&#x20AC;?

Brewer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the players may have dressed out for a playoff game as freshmen ..., but none of them have played a playoff game.â&#x20AC;? Because this group of players continues to do something theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve never done before, thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not much danger of an emotional fall off after completing the 10-0 campaign last week. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe this team is excited about being in the playoffs,â&#x20AC;? said Brewer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I believe our guys will show up and play. And if we show up, play hard and compete, the game really has a way of taking care if itself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not hungry, it will definitely show (tonight), because it will be our last four quarters of the season. But if our players keep competing the way they have been competing â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and I believe they will â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and if Bearden does the same, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have one great ball game.â&#x20AC;? Although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s win or go home this time of the year, the Smoky Bears are dealing with the pressure the way theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done all season. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We started the season with the goal of just trying to win the next game,â&#x20AC;? said Brewer. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our goal wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t to go undefeated. We just wanted to take each game at a time. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Right now, our goal is to be 11-0. We hope thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got a tall mountain to climb. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll have to get used to it, because thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the way itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going to be from here on out.â&#x20AC;?

FORT HOOD, Texas (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; A soldier opened fire at a U.S. Army base in Fort Hood, Texas on Thursday, unleashing a stream of gunfire that left 12 people dead and 31 wounded. Authorities killed the gunman, and apprehended two other soldiers suspected in the attack. The shooting began around 1:30 p.m., Lt. Gen. Bob Cone said at a news conference. He said all the casualties took place at the baseâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Soldier Readiness Center, where soldiers who are about to be deployed or who are returning undergo medical screening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a terrible tragedy. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s stunning,â&#x20AC;? Cone said. Little was known about the three

soldiers suspected of taking part in the attack. The soldier used two handguns, Cone said. It was not clear if the gunman had stopped to reload. A graduation ceremony for soldiers who finished college courses while deployed was going on in an auditorium at the Readiness Center at the time of the shooting, said Sgt. Rebekah Lampam, a Fort Hood spokeswoman. Greg Schanepp, U.S. Rep. John Carterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s regional director in Texas, was representing Carter at the graduation, said John Stone, a spokesman for Carter, whose district includes the Army post. Schanepp was at the ceremony

LONDON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The World Health Organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s flu chief said the swine flu virus has now become the predominant flu strain worldwide. In some countries, swine flu accounts for up to 70 percent of the flu viruses being sampled, said Dr. Keiji Fukuda, WHOâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top flu official. While most people recover from the illness without needing medical treatment, officials are also continuing to see severe cases in people under 65 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; people who are not usually at risk during regular flu seasons. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We remain quite concerned about the patterns that weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re seeing,â&#x20AC;? Fukuda said during a press briefing Thursday. He said the swine flu virus appeared to be fairly stable, and that samples from around the world remained very similar to when the virus was first identified in April. Regarding the recent surge of cases in the Ukraine â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which has reported more than 250,000 cases and 70 deaths of people with flu-like illness in recent weeks â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Fukuda said the virus appeared no different there than anywhere else.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The second-ranking House Democrat predicted that historic health care legislation will be passed Saturday as the AARP, the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s premier lobbying group for the elderly, announced it was signing on to the bill. Rep. Steny Hoyer said House leaders expect to have the 218 votes needed to pass the sweeping bill, which would extend coverage to tens of millions of uninsured people and ban insurance companies from turning people away. President Barack Obama has the health care overhaul the defining social goal of his young administration. Hoyer acknowledged that the vote could be tight, and he said his prediction of passage is predicated on the expectation that a couple remaining obstacles can be surmounted. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t refer to it as

when a soldier who had been shot in the back came running toward him and alerted him of the shooting, Stone said. The soldier told Schanepp not to go in the direction of the shooter, he said. Stone said he believes Schanepp was in the theater. The base was locked down after the shootings. The wounded were dispersed among hospitals in central Texas, Cone said. In Washington, President Barack Obama called the shooting â&#x20AC;&#x153;a horrific outburst of violence.â&#x20AC;? He said itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a tragedy to lose a soldier overseas and even more horrifying when they come under fire at an Army base on American soil.

Christmas traditions Favorite shows returning to Dollywood festival By GAIL CRUTCHFIELD Community Editor PIGEON FORGE — Tradition is important at Dollywood, and it’s even more important during the Christmas holidays. Dollywood will kick off its Smoky Mountain Christmas festival on Saturday. The award-winning event has become a tradition for many as a way to get their holiday celebrations off on the right foot. And like many traditions, once they are set, not very much changes about them. Dollywood will be bringing back its most popular shows, including Babes in Toyland, Christmas in the Smokies, O’ Holy Night and the Carol of the Trees. Although, there is something new about Carol of the Trees. The tree itself is new, and this will be the first year all of the lights in the synchronized display are LED lights, said Dollywood spokesman Pete Owens. The 15-minute production is repeated several times nightly. Other than that, there are very few changes to the festival’s traditional lineup. “When it comes to Christmas at Dollywood, things returning are a big deal,” said Paul Couch, the park’s entertainment director. “We don’t let go lightly.” And it seems to be working. The Christmas festival was named the No. 1 Christmas event for the second year in a row by Amusement Today magazine. “Collectively, Dollywood won the Golden Ticket award for best shows in the industry,” Couch added. “For us, bringing the shows back helps develop our reputation and helps achieve our status.” The longest running production during the Smoky Mountain Christmas Festival is the always-popular Christmas in the Smokies. The 45-minute production in Showplace Theater is original to the festival, and has been entertaining crowds with holiday tunes for 20 years. “It wouldn’t be Christmas at Dollywood without Christmas in the Smokies,” Couch said. “There are people who don’t feel like their Christmas has begun until they see Christmas in the Smokies. On of the things people like about it is, it’s a very clear, celebration statement that Christmas is about the birth of Jesus.” The production centers around a cabin where family and friends gather to hear holiday tales and traditions. Introduced in Curt Habraken/The Mountain Press 2008 was a special effect with snow falling on the audience at the front of the the- The Carol of the Trees display at Dollywood receives an upgrade this year, with a new tree and all LED lights. ater. But they don’t walk out shaking snow from their hair; this chemical snow dissipates before it reaches the ground. Babes In Toyland has become another favorite after its introduction in 2006. The onehour production includes a cast of 20 and a fully-orchestrated musical score. Before this year’s “Sha-Kon-O-Hey!” it was the most elaborate show the park had ever produced, Couch said. “We really raised the bar,” Couch said of their The cast of Babes in Toyland, above, performs in the Celebrity Theater, while one of the rovversion of the ing characters, below-right, strolls around Dollywood.

Friday, November 6, 2009 â&#x2014;&#x2020; The Mountain Press

Take the time to thank a veteran Victor Hugo, author of many notable works, including â&#x20AC;&#x153;Les Miserablesâ&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Hunchback of Notre Dame,â&#x20AC;? wrote, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Adversity makes real men and women...â&#x20AC;? Washington Irving, known for such contributions as Rip Van Winkle and The Legend of Sleepy Hollow, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Little minds are tamed and subdued by misfortune, but great minds rise above them.â&#x20AC;? No doubt, adversity does make us either stronger or weaker. It never leaves us the same. In the midst of adversities now facing our nation and, thus, facing many individuals, and as we approach the Nov. 11 Veterans Day observance, I think back to Sept. 11, 2001. Following the atrocious terroristsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; attacks that day, American patriotism rose to new heights. That is when my wife Jean, always extremely patriotic, began to pen her thoughts of what it means to be an American â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and what the men and women who have served and defended our country should mean to all of us. One of her writings was a poem titled â&#x20AC;&#x153;Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Real Heroes.â&#x20AC;? In 2002, Jean contacted George Hawkins, Special Events Manager of the Gatlinburg Department of Tourism, and suggested the city host a very special Veterans Day program. She volunteered that I serve as Master of Ceremonies as I had done for Veterans Day programs in various venues, and she offered to present her Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Real Heroes recitation. George responded and said he had been considering the possibility of having such a program. He proposed it to the city and, as they say, the rest is history. Staged on the attractive, high-profile plaza of Ripleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Aquarium of the Smokies, this special Gatlinburg Veterans Day Celebration began at 11 a.m. on 11-11-2003. We were overwhelmed by the response and support of locals and country-wide visitors who attended that event â&#x20AC;&#x201D; and it has continued to grow. Earlier this year, the Veterans Day National Committee designated the Gatlinburg Veterans Day Celebration as an official Regional Site for the

Observance of Veterans Day. The 2009 program on Wednesday, Nov. 11, beginning at 11 a.m., will again be hosted at Ripleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s in downtown Gatlinburg. We anticipate another full house, which makes the special event even more exciting for those who attend and for those who view the taped program later on TV and DVD. In Mallard Fillmore, Bruce Tinsleyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s syndicated editorial cartoon panel, Mallard receives a letter from a reader who asks the question, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What is the difference between â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Veterans Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; and â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Memorial Dayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;?â&#x20AC;? Mallard answers, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Some of the heroes we honor on Veterans Day we can still thank in person.â&#x20AC;? Wherever you may be on Nov. 11, take time to thank â&#x20AC;&#x153;in personâ&#x20AC;? a veteran or someone who is currently serving our country. In Jeanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s poem, in contrast to entertainers, athletes and other highly-paid celebrities in the media spotlight, Jean termed the defenders of our country as Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Real Heroes. In his Gettysburg Address of Nov. 19, 1863, President Abraham Lincoln appealed to Americans to make sure: â&#x20AC;&#x153;...that these dead shall not have died in vain; that this nation under God shall have a new birth of freedom; and that government of the people, by the people, for the people, shall not perish from the earth.â&#x20AC;? Today, we have a double challenge of (1) never forgetting the men and women who have served and are currently serving our nation in military capacities and (2) renewing our civilian efforts to assure our American government remains a government â&#x20AC;&#x153;of the people, by the people, for the people.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Š 2009.

H e a lt h D e pa r t m e n t I n s p e c t i o n R e p o r t s The Department of Health is responsible for regulation of food service establishments in Tennessee The law requires that restaurants have an unannounced inspection at least once every six months to determine if they are in compliance with applicable rules and regulations at the time of inspection. In addition to routine inspections, unannounced inspections are conducted in response to individual complaints. Tennessee uses a 44-item inspection sheet with a maximum of 100 points. Thirteen of the items are considered critical. Critical items, found out of compliance, must be corrected within 10 days. Inspections since Oct. 27:

Young wife should build reputation beyond husband’s


The Mountain Press has chosen not to publish today’s Zits cartoon panel because of what the newspaper feels is objectionable content. Blondie

Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: My husband is an amazing man. He is selfless and has uncompromising integrity. He is well-known and well-respected in our small community. I am proud to be his wife. I am 19 years my husband’s junior, and this, along with his well-deserved reputation, casts a huge shadow over me. I understand some of this can’t be helped, but why must people treat me as though I am some kind of accessory? I am a fairly intelligent woman, and although I am attractive, I don’t present myself as a bimbo. The real problem, however, is that my husband not only doesn’t seem to notice or care when his “fans” treat me rudely, it’s almost as if he goes out of his way to be extra nice to these very same people. I have accused him of building his ego by making me feel inferior. Am I crazy? He claims I am overreacting. His own brother said to me, “You were a nobody until you married my brother.” How do you think my husband should react to these situations? — Mrs. Nobody Dear Mrs.: He should make it clear that he is also proud of his wife. There is often an assumption when Mr. Big Shot marries a much younger woman that she is simply a trophy wife. Your husband either agrees or likes to give that impression. Women in these marriages have to work quite hard to establish an independent identity. People don’t know you. So get on the boards of some charitable foundations. Volunteer at your church. Start a literacy program or a food drive. If you want to develop a reputation as a smart,

capable woman, you must do something to promote it instead of relying on your unsupportive husband to do it for you. Dear Annie: Why is it that whenever my husband and I have a get-together at our home, hardly anyone shows up? Tonight we contacted several friends to come over for drinks and to listen to music and kick back. Absolutely no one showed up. This is not unusual. It doesn’t matter whether it’s a planned event or a last-minute thing, the turnout is minimal or nonexistent. Yet, if someone else has a get-together, there are people everywhere. I don’t get it. We’re fun people. We have a comfy home and many friends, so I thought. And when people do come, we all have a blast. By the way, this goes for our families, too. My oldest son just graduated high school and is the first in either family to attend college. I went all out for his open house and even reminded everyone to come. Once again, hardly anyone showed up. Not only was I disappointed, my son was crushed. Life should be filled with family and friends. Why is this happening? — Indiana Dear Indiana: We have no idea. You could be issuing unclear invitations or having so many get-togethers that people feel they’ve been there before and can afford to

miss some. Invite fewer people less often and see if your invitations become more valued. As for your family, we suggest asking them point-blank what’s going on and telling them how disappointed you and your son were that they didn’t bother to celebrate his graduation. An honest explanation would be helpful. Dear Annie: Every year you print a letter from someone complaining about glowing Christmas newsletters. Tell people to read between the lines. I didn’t put in the newsletter that my son dropped out of school and spent time in the hospital for depression. I also left out the years when I considered divorce and the time my other son was arrested for possession of marijuana. I’d rather sift through the events of the year in order to bring to light the few blessings that did occur. — Focusing on the Blessings Dear Blessings: That is a lovely idea for others to keep in mind, but it is also important that these newsletters not become brag sheets regardless of the reason.

McAllister winner of VFW essay contest VFW Post 10025 Voice of Democracy Chairman Bill Voight announces this year’s essay winner is Micah McAllister of Gatlinburg. He won $25 from the local VFW Post and will be entered in the District 2 competition. This year’s contest theme: “Does America Still Have Heroes?” By MICAH MCALLISTER On Nov. 9, 1967, Captain Lance Sijan was shot down in his “F-47 Bomber” over a jungle in North Vietnam. He lay at the base of a cliff for a day and a half; (with a broken leg, skull fracture, and concussion) before he was able to begin the journey to the nearest American military station. He evaded the Vietnamese for forty-six days. After his capture, he was beaten for his escape attempt. He was tortured daily for information, but refused to give away any except that which the Navy’s Code of Conduct permitted — his name, rank, service number and date of birth.

After several months, the Vietnamese killed him. He was posthumously awarded the Congressional Medal of Honor, Purple Heart and Prisoner of War Medal. Because of his bravery in Vietnam, Lance Sijan is remembered as a hero. But if he had not decided to become a Navy pilot, he would not have been chosen to fly a mission over Hanoi, Vietnam, he would not have received the honors that he did, and he would be remembered only by his friends and family. Without the circumstances that he was placed under, he would not have become a hero. Many popular movies and comic strips are about superheroes. People enjoy the idea of someone capable of extraordinary deeds. Though they are fictional, it seems that superheroes have almost replaced the actual meaning of the word “hero.” The “American Heritage Dictionary of the English Language” defines a hero as, “a person of distinguished ability, admired

for his brave deeds and noble qualities.” Of course heroes are brave, and noble, but often their abilities are no more remarkable than any other person’s. Sometimes it is hard not to confuse a hero with a superhero. This does not mean that our nation’s military veterans are worthy of any less admiration. They deserve more honor than can be fit into one lifetime. However, we honor them not because of some remarkable skill, or talent, that they possess, but for their courage under terrible circumstances. Lance Sijan was the son of a poor farmer from Wisconsin. His education was barely adequate to allow him to go to college. He did not enter the military for fame, or fortune, but for the opportunity to serve his country. He probably did not expect to spend the last few months of his life in a Vietnamese POW camp. But he did. And because of this, not because of his abilities, he became a hero. “People” like Superman

are considered heroes because of their supernatural abilities, which allow them to accomplish heroic deeds; abilities obtained by chance, not by their own doing. Even if they did exist, they would not actually be heroes — They cheat. A real hero is a natural human being, with natural limitations to his or her abilities. As General George Patton put it, “Courage is fear holding on a minute longer.” Though every hero must possess an exceptional amount of courage, the challenging situations that a hero experiences are more significant than many people think. Courage is basically the only essential part of heroism that actually is a character trait. But if this is true, who qualifies as a hero? What is the difference between a soldier fighting overseas, who jumps onto a grenade to save his comrades, and a friendly neighbor who climbs a tree to rescue a cat? After all, they both require courage. Perhaps the term “hero”

military veterans have given to us. Half a million Americans died fighting in Europe, during World War II. Most of these people died before their twenty-fifth birthday. Future presidents, generals, scientists and authors sacrificed their lives in order to protect their country. An honorary piece of medal might serve to thank them, but it cannot repay them. Unless we can return every brother, sister, son and daughter to their families, thanking them is all we can do. No American deserves more gratitude than our soldiers, our heroes.

is too broadly used. Many people would say that anyone who has the guts to enter the military is a hero. If this is true, there must be some other word used to describe the millions of people who died fighting for their country, who were not able to return to receive the title of “hero.” Maybe the real heroes are the people who never came back. As long as America has brave citizens, she will always have heroes. But this is difficult to understand with a skewed definition of die word “hero.” Heroism is courage, and courage is fear holding on a minute longer. Heroes are people who accept a difficult situation (one that demands loyalty to their country) and handle it as best they can. Some people are not able to handle very trying circumstances, and some people, like Lance Sijan, are able lo remain loyal to their country until death. No matter how hard we try, no matter how many titles and awards we give, we cannot return even a portion of all that our
