Growth plan presented to county By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — Even as a few local governments continue their consideration of recommendations for new hillside development regulation, another group has come out with proposals for new rules on area construction. City and county officials agreed last year to enter into a partnership with the Tennessee

Valley Authority (TVA) to complete a growth readiness study that would chiefly address water quality issues related to development. The federal agency paid for and organized the process, holding a series of workshops with local residents, developers and officials, and providing some stock regulation proposals to get the ball rolling. That months-long effort has finally concluded and it result-

ed in a full-color, 26-page book of recommendations for new regulations. That document was presented to city and county officials this week by staff members from the local planning offices. “These recommendations are really aimed at mitigating water quality issues in the future and at least easing to some extent flooding problems in these new developments,” Sevierville Planning Director Jim Bryant

told the group, which included the county mayor and top administrators from each city. Bryant pointed out the group took pains to ensure the report doesn’t unfairly target builders, who may have to foot some higher initial costs for using things like impervious pavement but could see a reduction in their bills in other areas under the recommendations. “This can be a benefit to the See plan, Page A3

There’s never been a better time to be a vampire. Just ask the crowd of teens and young adults who attended a celebration of the movie “New Moon” at the Kodak Branch of the Sevier County Public Library on Thursday, the eve before the film’s opening day. “We have a lot of kids who come in and love anything to do with vampires,” said Kodak library branch manager Kelly Hamilton. “When they get to middle

school and high school, they tend to stop coming to the library. This is to let them know we have things that are for them, too.” “New Moon” is the second book in the hugely popular “Twilight” series by Stephanie Meyer. The stories focus on the love triangle between a young girl, a vampire and a werewolf. “We love ‘Twilight’,” said 13-year-old Ashley New, a student at Northview Middle School. “I like vampires, but in this (book/movie) I’m all about the werewolf — Jacob is hot.” Yes, Jacob would be

Fund created for elk By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — What do you take to an elk memorial? As it turns out, donations are accepted in lieu of flowers. After the illegal poaching of an elk in the Cataloochee Valley on the North Carolina side of Great Smoky Mountains National Park, fans of the antlered creatures began searching for a way to pay tribute to the animal. That’s where Friends of the Smokies came up with the idea of starting

SEVIERVILLE — One of the original alleged victims in rape charges against local physician Rodney Carter was dropped from the case against him in a new indictment issued by the grand jury, even as two new alleged victims were added to the list. Carter now faces four counts of rape and three Carter counts of sexual battery involving four male patients at his clinic. That essentially means the new charges added one more count of rape to the amount he was already facing. Prosecutor Steve Hawkins said the victim whose charges were dropped changed his testimony after talking to defense attorney Bryan Delius or representatives of the defense team. He didn’t follow up with what he told the police,” Hawkins said. “We didn’t think we could prove it beyond a reasonable doubt,” The alleged victims are named in the indictment, but The Mountain Press does not typically identify alleged victims of sex crimes.

Countywide speed limit idea dies By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer SEVIERVILLE — A group of county officials got through a debate on setting a countywide speed limit faster than a driver flying down an unmarked highway. The County Commission’s Transportation Committee took up the issue during its monthly session at the request of Highway Superintendent Jonas Smelcer, who said several commissioners not on that group asked that the matter be discussed. As it happens, dis-

cussion is as far as it got. “I have had three or four commissioners talk to me about it and they wanted us to bring it up,� Smelcer told the committee, which he works with during its regular sessions. Those folks pushing the issue are apparently motivated by two things: Fear of speeders and a desire to clear up the agendas the Transportation Committee faces. As it stands now, the maximum on all local roads that don’t have posted speed limits is 55, which is the statewide rule.

A rre s t s Editor’s Note: The following information was taken from the intake reports at the Sevier County Jail. All people listed within this report are presumed innocent unless proven guilty in a court of law. u Teresa Nadine Branham, 37, of 601 George Davis in Sevierville, was charged Nov. 18 with misdemeanor filing a false report to an officer. She was released on $500 bond. u Larry Thomas Cochran, 18, of Dover, Del., was charged Nov. 18 with aggravated burglary, criminal impersonation and resisting arrest.

She was being held. u Sarah Nicole Deturris, 21, of 3730 Sims Road in Sevierville, was charged Nov. 18 with violation of probation. She was released on $3,500 bond. u Lex Alan Dienst, 34, of Newport, was charged Nov. 18 with a second count of violation of probation. He was being held in lieu of $1,000 bond. u Kate May Dolezal, 28, of 500 Ownby Drive in Sevierville ,was charged Nov. 18 with theft of property worth $1,000 to $10,000. She was released on $3,500 bond. u Brittany Maria Gibson, 20, of 384 East Parkway Apt. 326 in Gatlinburg, was charged Nov. 19 with possession of a schedule II substance. She was being held in lieu of $3,500 bond. u Brian Linback, 22, of 320 Wye Drive in Seymour, was charged Nov. 19 with possession of drug paraphernalia and possession of a schedule IV substance. He was being held in lieu of $2,500 bond. u Hermino Cruz Lopez, 28, of 1837 Bertie St. in Sevierville, was charged Nov. 18 with violation of probation. He was being held in lieu of $1,500 bond. u Joseph Arthur Makisky, 57, of 4025 Parkway #167 in Pigeon Forge, was charged Nov. 19 with domestic violence assault. He was being held in lieu of $2,000 bond. u James Cecil Maples,

40, of 540 Nicole Lane in Seymour, was charged Nov. 19 with eight counts of worthless checks. He was being held in lieu o $2,450 bond. u Shannin Marie Moore, 32, of Knoxville, was charged Nov. 19 with two counts of violation of probation. She was being held. u Kenneth Wilton Owens, 50, of 2020 Ridge Road #6 in Pigeon Forge, was charged Nov. 18 with domestic violence assault. He was being held in lieu of $2,500 bond. u Jack Brandon Price, 18, of 117 S. Rocky Flats Road in Sevierville, was charged Nov. 18 with two counts of aggravated burglary. He was being held. u Melissa Kaye Ramsey, 31, of Newport, was charged Nov. 18 with two misdemeanor warrants from general sessions court. She was being held in lieu of $7,500 bond. u Jeremy Lee Ray, 28, of Knoxville, was charged Nov. 19 with a second count of violation of probation. He was being held. u Bryan Dale Reddin, 44, of 1030 Little Alpine Road in Seymour, was charged Nov. 18 with violation of probation. He was being held. u Matthew Harrison Smith, 26, of 913 River Road in Kodak, was charged Nov. 18 with DUI. He was being held in lieu of $1,000 bond. u Robert Edward Sweet Jr., 28, of 166 Red Bud Lane in Sevierville, was charged Nov. 18 with violation of probation. He was released.

However, Smelcer said he has been approached about setting that number at 35, a figure that seemed too low to the members of the committee. “Countywide 35?� Commissioner Kent Woods asked rhetorically. “I don’t buy that. Are there problems somewhere somebody’s running too fast?� Smelcer said there have been no specific instances in which the issue has seemed to become a problem, pointing out the group takes action almost every month to set speed limits on roads where residents think

there is an issue. “This is just something that’s been thrown out there, because every time we meet we have to set speed limits,� Smelcer said. “That gives us something to do,� Woods joked. Commissioner Jim Keener also spoke out against action on the matter, saying the group shouldn’t act before at least getting an opinion from Sheriff Ron Seals, whose department would have to enforce the new rule. Beyond that, Keener worried the change would mean some additional administrative work for both the sheriff’s and highway

departments. Smelcer expressed his own concerns about the idea, pointing out he’s not sure about the legality of such a move, though he acknowledged other areas, including most recently the city of Newport, have such laws. “What we do is probably the most legal way to do it,� Smelcer said. “If we put the signs up, it could be challenged in court.� It took no more discussion for the idea to die without so much as a motion to consider it proposed. n dhodges@themountainpress.com

Splash County named a Must-See at IAAPA awards From Submitted Reports PIGEON FORGE — Dollywood’s Splash Country won the Must-See Waterpark Award at the International Association of Amusement Parks and Attractions Expo 2009 in Las Vegas. The program recognizes waterparks that provide visitors with a unique and memorable experience, top guest service, operations and safety. “IAAPA’s Must-See Waterpark award truly is an honor for our entire Dollywood’s Splash Country team and all of Herschend Family Entertainment, which is dedicated to providing a one-ofa-kind guest experience in a wholesome family setting,” Gene Scherrer, Splash Country vice president and general manager, said. The attraction twice has been recognized by the Travel Channel as one of the country’s top 10 water parks. In 2001,

Splash Country was named the World Waterpark Association’s Best New Water Park in America. In August, Splash Country announced the addition of Slick Rock Racer, a multilane mat slide, for the 2010 season. Slick Rock Racer spans 300 feet and features four water-drenched lanes, each side by side. Positioned belly down on mats, each rider travels head first on a channel which includes an initial dip to build speed. Multiple bumps along the length of the slide allow riders to gain additional momentum which propels them to the finish. The new attraction can accommodate approximately 600 guests an hour. Slick Rock Racer joins Dollywood’s Splash Country’s more than 30 water adventure slides. Splash Country is a 35-acre water adventure park located adjacent to Dollywood.

Gates Foundation gives $335M for teacher quality SEATTLE (AP) — Three school districts and a coalition of charter schools have agreed to be test kitchens for some radical ideas for improving teacher quality — from paying new teachers to spend another year practicing before getting their own class to letting student test scores affect teacher pay. In exchange, the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation is handing them the biggest pile of cash it has spent on education reform in about a decade. The foundation announced $290 million in grants to the four groups on Thursday, plus another $45 million for education research aimed at uncovering what exactly is an effective teacher. The grants include $100 million to Hillsborough County Public Schools in Tampa, Fla., $90 million to Memphis City Schools, $60 million to a coalition of charter school organizations in Los Angeles, and $40 million to Pittsburgh Public Schools. Vicki Phillips, director of the foundation’s K-12 education program, said the investment is big, the ideas are bold and she hopes the impact could rock every school and every district in the nation.

pires,” said Lauren Rohl, 14, also a student at Northview Middle School. “They’re romantic and sexy — they’re much better than human boys.” Hamilton arranged to have a DVD showing of the first movie, “Twilight,” as well as word puzzles, board games and other activities based on the series at Thursday’s event. There was also plenty of food — and gossiping about what the new movie would be like. “We bought our tickets last Monday,” said Rachael Reece, 24. “I think it’s going to be really good. I’ve seen the first movie a thousand times.” Even Hamilton admits to being a big fan of the vampire saga. “I love the movie, and I love the books,” she said. “I even got to meet

Foundation co-chair Melinda Gates said she and her husband, Microsoft cofounder Bill Gates, consider education reform one of the toughest issues the foundation has taken on. The foundation is best known for its work fighting diseases like AIDS and malaria worldwide. “Any time you’re trying to change a system and really have some innovative approaches, it’s going to take some long-term work,” Melinda Gates said. The foundation purposely picked four diverse organizations to work with: from the four corners of the U.S., of a variety of sizes and ethnic mixes, all with existing problems and some successes meeting the educational needs of their students. A fifth district was in line to join the others, but Omaha Public Schools dropped out at the last minute after decided it could not meet the matching requirement of the grant during these tough economic times. Smaller grants to other districts will be announced later, Phillips said. The various reform projects have a number of central themes.

community and developers,” Bryant said. “It’s not a matter of someone being hurt by something.” With the report finished, the planners conceded the next step is somewhat up in the air, though they’re hopeful each government will follow a process similar to the one used to review recommendations for regulating steep-slope development made by engineering firm Saratoga Associates. “Where do we go with it?” Gatlinburg Planner David Ball asked rhetorically. “As a group, we think, with the differences in terrain, probably the most effective process would be to go back to the communities and go through these to find which of them are appropriate or most appropriate in each area.” The officials in the meeting praised the effort. “This is a good report,” Pigeon Forge City Manager Earlene Teaster said. “It was a lot of hard work.” Engineer Gary McGill said, though he pointed out there is still much work to be done. “Overall I think it’s very good stuff,” McGill said. “You just have to rate some of this out.” Sevierville City Administrator Steve Hendrix also recommended that the fleshing out of the report include the drafting of a document that will help explain the new rules to developers. “Rather than just to lay that on them, to be able to point them on the right direction would be an important step,” Hendrix said. Through a series of four workshops, the group came up with three main areas to address. n Residential streets and parking With the greatest potential for land disturbance and stormwater runoff in a new development coming from the construction of roads, the group took on the task of making suggestions that could

help limit those effects. Among the recommendations made to that end are that there be vegetated open channels along residential roads that can handle runoff, and that parking areas for both residential and commercial endeavors be built at least partly of permeable pavement. Such materials allow precipitation to percolate through the surface to the earth below. Off the topic of water issues, the group also addressed concerns about residential road building. The recommendations include requiring such streets to be at least 16-feet wide, be designed to reduce their total length by serving as many homes as possible and that cul-de-sacs be limited by using one-way loop roads. n Lot development There are at least a couple areas in which the Growth Readiness Plan seemingly comes into conflict with the Saratoga Associates report the county and the cities have been reviewing and implementing. While that latter document advocates requiring construction on steeply-sloped land to be done on larger lots, the Growth Readiness Plan actually advocates the exact opposite where practical. The idea being that the smaller lots will allow more space – the recommendation is at least 40 percent of a development’s total area – to be preserved in a natural state. If that happens, local watersheds will see

the benefits. The recommendations, rather than proposing new rules, also directly disagree with existing local laws, as well. Among the suggestions is that the current rules on yard setbacks and frontages be relaxed to decrease driveway lengths and reduce the overall lot imperviousness. n Conservation of natural areas The report encourages the implementation of buffer systems to catch runoff and reduction of clearing and grading done on development tracts. It also encourages local governments to set up incentive systems to reward developers who use practices that can reduce the impact construction has. Among the benefits suggested is offering a reduction in property taxes and awarding stormwater credits that builders could use to offset impacts from other developments. The group also suggests finding ways to limit light pollution and encouraging the use of Firewise building techniques, an international system of guidelines that seeks to reduce the risk of wildfires. n dhodges@themountainpress.com

Bolstered by an immediate $1,000 gift from the operators of the blog yoursmokies.blogspot.com, the collection had grown to more than $1,500 by Thursday morning. “The response has been amazing,� Scott said. “We sent out an e-mail blast yesterday and we got $425 overnight. We’ve had donors from as far away as New York.� Perhaps more incredible about that quick response is that the Wednesday afternoon e-mail provided a standard donation level of $10 for those looking to contribute, meaning it would have taken quite a few donors to get to the level the fund is at now, Scott said. The money raised in the collection will be used to fund the Elk Bugle Corps, a volunteer group that helps watch out for the elk and will likely be stepping up its efforts in the wake of Friday’s incident. The Corps will likely get uniforms, flashlights, equipment and educational supplies from the fund. A Granville County, N.C., man has been arrested and

One of the new allegations dates back to August 2005; previously the earliest incident dated to June 2007. Delius had previously said the defense quickly found evidence that would exonerate Carter. The new indictment is a superseding indictment, meaning it included the previous charges and added new ones. With new allegations added to the mix, it isn’t clear whether the criminal trial against Carter will be rescheduled from Dec. 9. Carter is free on $200,000 bond. A grand jury first indicted Carter in March. The Tennessee Board of Medical Examiners suspended his license soon

reportedly confessed to shooting the elk, which was one of the most dominant and photogenic of the males in the park. The 13-year-old animal was among the first moved to the park during a project that started in 2001, an effort that has cost more than $1 million so far. The elk’s body was found beside the road in the valley and investigators are completing a necropsy on the animal. The man accused of killing him was quickly tracked down Friday evening and charged with poaching an animal in a national park, which could net him up to a $5,000 fine and 6 months in jail. “The suspect was quickly identified and a strong case developed because of the willingness of members of the community to come forward and talk to rangers and state wildlife officers,� Acting Chief Ranger Steve Kloster said. “The many visitors and volunteers who come to Cataloochee expressly to watch the elk constitute a very effective surveillance network which has undoubtedly prevented elk poaching from occurring earlier.� As park officials and the district attorney work to build their case, he could reportedly face additional charges including carrying a loaded weapon into a national park. n dhodges@themountainpress.com

Republicans blast ‘bait and switch’ health bill

Pentagon looking for lapses WASHINGTON (AP) — The Pentagon said Thursday it will scour its procedures for identifying volatile soldiers hidden in the ranks following the Fort Hood shooting rampage and lapses that might allow others to slip through bureaucratic cracks. “It is prudent to determine immediately whether there are internal weaknesses or procedural shortcomings in the department that could make us vulnerable in the future,” Defense Secretary Robert Gates said. A 45-day emergency investigation will examine personnel, medical, mental health, discharge and other policies in all corners of the vast Defense Department. It will also look at ways to improve security and emergency response at Defense Department facilities. “The shootings at Fort Hood raise a number of troubling questions that demand complete but prompt answers,” Gates told a Pentagon news conference.

Winfrey to announce end of show CHICAGO (AP) — Oprah Winfrey’s production company says Winfrey will announce today that her talk show will end in 2011 after its 25th season on the air. Chicago-based Harpo Productions Inc. said Thursday night that the talk show host will give more details live on the “The Oprah Winfrey Show” broadcast Friday. Winfrey started her broadcasting career in Nashville, Tenn., and Baltimore, Md., before relocating to Chicago in 1984 to host WLS-TV’s morning talk show “A.M. Chicago.” That show was renamed “The Oprah Winfrey Show” in 1985. A year later, Winfrey established Harpo and her talk show went into syndication. In 1990, Winfrey opened Harpo Studios in Chicago’s West Loop neighborhood.

Jacob Shaffer enters a courtroom for a preliminary hearing in Fayetteville, Thursday, followed by attorney Jack Dearing. Shaffer is charged with fatally stabbing and beating six people in Tennessee and Alabama.

Suspect asked to hug daughter By LUCAS L. JOHNSON II Associated Press Writer FAYETTEVILLE — A man charged with fatally stabbing and beating six people in Tennessee and Alabama asked a responding deputy to let him hug his 4-year-old daughter — the only person spared in the attack, the deputy testified Thursday. Testifying at a preliminary hearing, Bob Jones of the Lincoln County Sheriff’s Department said that when he reached the crime scene, suspect Jacob Shaffer was seated on the porch with his 4-year-old daughter. The 28-year-old Shaffer then stood up, turned around and put his hands behind his back and said, “You need to cuff me ... but I need to hug my daughter first,” Jones told the court. Shaffer’s estranged wife, Tracie, her teenage son, her father and brother and a 16-year-old neighbor were found killed in two homes in rural Fayetteville on July 18. A man who was described as an acquaintance of Shaffer’s was found beaten to death at a Huntsville, Ala., business, about 30 miles south. Shaffer said at that time that his wife had been cheating on him, Jones testified. He said he heard the little girl say “he hurt,” but that she didn’t finish the sentence. Jones said the child was crying, so he didn’t want to press her for information. After Shaffer was placed in Jones’ patrol car, the deputy asked him what was going on. “They’re all dead,” said Jones. When he went inside the home, Jones said he discovered three bloody bodies. “There was a tremendous amount of blood,” Jones recalled. Minutes later, Jones said Shaffer told him there were two bodies in a home across the street and a dead body in a barrel in Huntsville. Authorities there were notified and they found the body exactly where Shaffer said it would be. “He knew things that only the killer could have known,” District Attorney Charles Crawford told reporters after the hearing.

WASHINGTON — Digging in for a long struggle, Republican senators and governors assailed the Democrats’ newly minted health care legislation Thursday as a collection of tax increases, Medicare cuts and heavy new burdens for deficitridden states. Despite the criticism, there were growing indications Democrats would prevail on an initial Senate showdown set for Saturday night, and Majority Leader Harry Reid crisply rebutted the Republican charges. The bill “will save lives, save money and save Medicare,” he said. The legislation is designed to answer President Barack Obama’s call to expand coverage, end industry practices such as denying coverage on the basis of pre-existing medical conditions, and restrain the growth of health care spending. Republicans saw little to like. “It makes no sense at all and affronts common sense,” said Sen. Judd Gregg of New Hampshire, one of several Republicans to criticize the measure. He added that a plan to expand Medicaid, the state-federal program for the poor, was a “bait and switch” with states as the victims. GOP governors, meeting in Texas, agreed. “We all know a sucker play when we see one,” said Mitch Daniels of Indiana. The bill would expand the Medicaid program, which provides health care for the poor, and leave the states with part of the additional cost begin-

ning after three years. In the Capitol, Reid answered Republican delaying tactics with an initial test vote set for Saturday evening. A 60-vote majority is required to advance the bill toward full debate, expected to begin after Thanksgiving. Counting two independents, Democrats control 60 Senate seats. Three moderate Democrats have been cagey about their intentions, although none of them has announced a plan to defect. Officials disclosed during the day that Reid had included

in the bill a political sweetener for one of the three, Mary Landrieu of Louisiana, in the form of $100 million to help her state cover health care costs for the poor. While the struggle was forming, there were limits. Sen. Tom Coburn, R-Okla., backed off his threat to force the 2,074page bill to be read aloud in the Senate chamber, a move that would have eaten into the Senate’s Thanksgiving-week vacation. Given the political stakes, there was disagreement even about the bill’s cost.

No TVA executive bonuses this year By DUNCAN MANSFIELD Associated Press Writer KNOXVILLE — Tennessee Valley Authority’s top executives were told Thursday during a meeting in Kentucky not to expect performance bonuses this year because of a drop in electricity sales due to the poor economy and the massive coal ash spill at the Kingston plant in Tennessee. The executives and some 3,300 other managers and specialists at the nation’s largest public utility also will see no pay raises in fiscal 2010, which began Oct. 1. “It was a year overshadowed by Kingston and the economic down-

turn,” said TVA President and Chief Executive Tom Kilgore, who will take the biggest hit of all. Kilgore received more than $1 million in bonuses for fiscal 2008 and the nine executives who report to him received $1.2 million. They will not get a bonus or pay raise this year unless they are promoted. The rest of TVA’s nearly 12,000 employees will be eligible for raises. The Dec. 22 spill of 5.4 million cubic yards of coal ash at the Kingston Fossil Plant has been an unparalled environmental disaster. The cleanup is expected to cost $1 billion, which TVA plans to

pay off over several years, and is continuing. About half the ash, or about a quarter that spilled overall, has become recovered from the Emory River. TVA expects to have the rest out of the river by spring, but federal lawsuits against the agency are still looming and residents continue to worry about health impacts. “You see a lot of really substantial progress being made on many fronts in TVA,” TVA director Dennis Bottorff said. “It is unfortunate that we see an event which overshadows that performance or an economy that we all live in that detracts from that performance.”

commentary

Get out of Afghanistan right now Most of what you read, see and hear about Afghanistan is not meant for you. The words, optimistic and pessimistic, right and wrong, all the leaks, all the numbers of troop estimates, costs and polls are aimed at an audience of one: the president. It is very hard to get to chat with any president. But any president has to know what is in the big three of American newspapers (or their Web sites): The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Wall Street Journal. And those papers right now are filled with shouting and whispering to President Obama. The latest shout, a big one, is the leaking to the Times of cables to the State Department from the U.S. ambassador to Afghanistan, who also happens to be a former military commander of American troops in the country. That would be ambassador and former general Karl Eikenberry, who told the president that there might be no point in sending more young men and women in uniform to win an unwinnable war in a vast country largely ungoverned or governed by unfathomable corruption. Eikenberry’s “classified” words were obviously meant as a countermove designed to check the “classified” request for 40,000 more American troops by the current military commander, Gen. Stanley McChrystal, leaked to The Washington Post last month. That is the way the game is played and always has been in Washington. I once asked President Bill Clinton whether he got more critical information from daily Central Intelligence Agency reports and briefings or from reading the Times. “From the Times,” he answered. “Although occasionally the CIA and the other intelligence agencies are ahead on timing.” For people like me, who believe we should get out of Afghanistan ASAP, the Eikenberry report surfaced in the nick of time — just as Obama appears ready to make longterm strategy decisions about our military involvement in Afghanistan. What is going on there is a civil war, a political war, and we have learned time and again that all the firepower in the world cannot stop people who want to destroy each other on their home territory. The Afghans have been in those unforgiving mountains for thousands of years, and they will be there for thousands more after we leave. So it does not really matter when we go. Besides, our own people at home want us to get out, even if the war is being fought by a volunteer army, and to most Americans that means it is like another National Football League game. Our soldiers are professionals putting on a television show, same as the warriors of the NFL. “All the polling I’ve ever seen,” said William Schneider of CNN, “tells me one thing: Americans hate political wars. They want to win or get out.” Schneider and I were together at a forum called “Obama’s Afghanistan: The Media and the War,” sponsored by the Center on Communication Leadership at the Annenberg School for Communication and Journalism at the University of Southern California. He went on to say: “We’re talking now about persuading the population rather than destroying the enemy. That is the definition of a political war. We are taking sides in another country’s civil war.” That message should have gotten through to presidents who ran the war in Vietnam, or it got through too late. Another panelist, retired Gen. Wesley Clark, the former NATO commander, put it this way: “More troops mean more casualties, which means less public support.” Morton Abramowitz, who was director of the State Department’s intelligence bureau in the 1980s when we were training and supplying the mujahedeen fighting and defeating Soviet occupiers in Afghanistan, offered more than a little insight into what is happening now in the same place and sometimes with the same people: “First, we would not be there or in Iraq if we had a draft and people were worried about their children. Second, can anyone tell me why it takes so long to train Afghan soldiers. The Taliban seems to have no trouble training them in a few weeks.” I hope the audience of one is listening to words like that and has the political courage to break his own campaign promises about saving Afghanistan. Save them from what, themselves? — Richard Reeves, a presidential scholar and expert on six presidents, is the author of several books, including profiles of Richard Nixon and John Kennedy.

Editorial

Tough road ahead Decision on what to do about traffic at Exit 407 critical to county One thing is certain: Something needs to be done about the traffic that enters and exits Sevier County via Exit 407 on Interstate 40, especially at two critical times of the week. The first is the traffic coming into the county from I-40 starting Friday morning; the second is vehicles exiting via Highway 66 on Sunday morning into the afternoon. (And don’t even get started about how bad things are on rod run weeks.) Another thing that is certain: Although there are ideas on the table, there doesn’t appear to be a expedient fix. There has been talk of adding exits at mile marker 406 or 408, but the Tennessee Department of Transportation told Sevierville’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen on Monday night that more work on 407 would not address the problem. Furthermore, even if a decision were reached immediately, it would be at least seven years

before a new interchange could be built. It is important to note that the problem may abut, but does not overlap, the situation with the first phase of widening of Highway 66, which is now under way and will help more with the traffic flow closer to Sevierville. Remember, it took seven or eight years of political wrangling for that project to get the go-ahead, so it stands to reason this new proposed project would face the same type adversity. Discussed by city leaders before is the idea of having an interchange at mile marker 408 at Bryan Road. While it would be the route that would most benefit developer John Turley’s Dumplin Creek project, it must be noted that the project would have to handle the traffic and the public, not just the development. The exit would also have to serve the other direc-

tion, not just the direction toward Sevierville. The second option is to build the exit a mile west of Exit 407, connecting it directly to Douglas Dam Road/ Highway 139. It already meets the requirement of being a state highway, but would still need some improvements to bring it up to specifications. Motorists — tourists and locals — find it horribly frustrating to sit in traffic coming into the city on Fridays or trying to leave on Sundays. Without the proper infrastructure, how long will it take for the tourists — the lifeblood of our community — to start drifting to other getaway destinations? BOMA has asked city personnel to gather more information on the proposals and present it at a January workshop. While it is critical that something be done, it is equally important that the right decision is made.

Public forum Fee demands from attorney prompt a lot of questions

Editor: I recently made an appointment with a local attorney to go over some legal material. I first had to give him $200 for his supposedly “legal advice.” He would not talk to me without this consultant fee. After discussing my issues, he informed me that his retainer fee was $5,000, nonnegotiable. He also told me that this $5,000 did not go into his personal account, but to a trust fund. He said that my case could take up to three years before it could be settled. What’s wrong with this picture? 1. He never told me if I had a case. 2. Why would I take 5K out of my high yield money market account to put in his trust fund and tie up the money for three years?

3. Who would get the interest while it is in “his trust fund”? 4. Do you approve of where the interest money goes, if you knew? What if it goes to Russia for nuke bombs or Hare Krishna? 5. Last but not least, if an attorney charges $200 an hour, why would a case that he doesn’t know if it is a case, warrant 250 billing hours? Question everything. If doesn’t sound right, it probably isn’t right. Lisa Acuff Sevierville

Neither President Obama nor I (a Democrat) had any hand in these murders. By my observation, The Mountain Press allowed an apparent, accusing or libelous letter to be published recently. Any suggestion “the Obama Administration” or I as a Democrat had any hand, or fault in these murders is absurd. The Mountain Press’s rules for publication of letter to the editor” says, “Statements of fact must be attributed to a source for verification,” “no libel” or “personal attacks.” I used my dictionary (Webster, copyrighted 1956) to check the definitions of all Obama, Dems had nothing these words, libel, fact, verification, etc. The Mountain Press has an obligation to to do with Fort Hood incident follow their own rules.

Mixed Martial Arts event set for Saturday at SCHS By JASON DAVIS Sports Editor SEVIERVILLE — For years martial arts instructor and personal trainer Gene Click has had a dream of bringing a high-quality, family-friendly mixed martial arts event to Sevier County. As the promoter of Saturday night’s Fit Factory Fighting Championships MMA show at Sevier County High School, Click hopes he’s accomplished

just that. “This is a family-based show,” Click said. “None of my fighters are going to come out to vulgar music, there’s not going to be any half-naked chicks running around, no alcohol, nothing like that. I want people to feel like they can bring their kids out and enjoy the sport. A lot of dads sit home watching the UFC with their 10-year-old sons, I want them to be able to get something local and it’ll be better

than watching it on TV.” Click said he’s gone to great lengths to give the Saturday show the fit and finish of a bigtime MMA production. “A lot of amateur events are guilty of sticking a cage in the middle of a broke down place, and trying to cut corners,” Click said. “Because I am a fighter, I understand things from a promotional standpoint that a lot of promoters overlook. “For a lot of these fighters it’s

their biggest day ever. They’re just as nervous walking into my cage this Saturday as the guys walking into the cage at UFC on Saturday night in Vegas. It’s competition, you’re getting out there and putting yourself on the line. You train so hard, put everything into it and get to the event and it’s subpar. What I’ve done is turned around and put every dime I could possibly See MMA, Page A9

PREP FOOTBALL

Local gridiron stars Heatherly and Smith tabbed for East-West All-Star Game Heatherly listed as O-lineman, Smith is an alternate at defensive tackle By COBEY HITCHCOCK Sports Writer Two senior prep football players from Sevier County have been selected for the third-annual Toyota East versus West Tennessee All-Star Classic, the Tennessee Athletic Coaches Association announced Thursday. Sevier County Smoky Bears offensive lineman Ross Heatherly and Seymour Eagles defensive tackle Nick Smith were the lone Sevier County gridiron players to make the All-Star team this season. The 6-foot-3, 285-pound Heatherly is one of eight linemen on the East AllStar roster, while 6-foot-3, 275-pound Smith is listed as one of two alternate — and one of five overall — defensive linemen on the East squad. “It’s a great thing for Ross,” said SCHS coach Steve Brewer. “Any time you get to play in an AllStar game, you develop friendships with people

across the state. It’s really a great experience, one that he won’t forget, and he’s worked hard to get there.” Heatherly recorded a Smoky Bears team record this season with 70 roaches, commonly referred to as pancake blocks. “He’s just the kind of guy that gets after it,” said Brewer. “He’s one of those guys you have to get on because they want to keep going after the whistle. “But you’d rather have to slow somebody down, instead of trying to get somebody started. You don’t have to try to get Ross started. He plays very hard, through the whistle and he had a really good year for us.” Although Smith is listed as an alternate and won’t actually get to play unless

one of the top three defensive linemen spots opens up for some reason, it’s still a rare achievement to be one of just 58 prep gridiron athletes named on the East team’s roster. “It’s a great honor,” said Seymour coach Jim Moore. “I mean when you think statewide, it’s a great honor to be on that list.” Smith transferred to Seymour from Knoxville Carter for his senior year, and he was a godsend to the Eagles football squad. Smith led the team with 111 tackles, which is an impressive accomplishment from the defensive tackle position. Middle linebackers typically lead teams in tackling numbers, but Eagles MLB Keegan Newport finished

In the Sevier County-Seymour game this season, both Ross Heatherly (above, 71, coming at the ball-carrier) and Nick Smith (below, 66, tackling Bears’ running back Dakota Cogdill) were factors for their team.

MAJOR LEAGUE BASEBALL

Back-to-back Cy Youngs for Lincecum By JAY COHEN AP Sports Writer

Jeff Roberson/AP

San Francisco Giants pitcher Tim Lincecum pitches against the Cardinals this season. Lincecum won the NL Cy Young Award on Thursday becoming the first repeat winner in the major leagues since Randy Johnson was voted the prize four straight times from 1999-2002.

NEW YORK — Talk about a freak — Tim Lincecum needed just 15 wins to bag another NL Cy Young Award. Yup, throw out those old baseball cards. Wins and losses don’t mean much anymore when it comes time for voters to pick baseball’s best pitchers. It’s all about WHIP, FIP, BABIP and other lines of alphabet soup. “It’s turned into a game of complete numbers and statistics and what people do with that,” Lincecum said. Lincecum won the Cy Young Award on Thursday for the second straight year, emerging from one of the tightest votes in the history of the honor to become the first repeat winner since Randy Johnson. Only 10 points separated the top three vote-getters. Chris Carpenter was second and St. Louis teammate Adam Wainwright finished third despite getting the most firstplace votes. Lincecum, nicknamed “The Freak” for his giant stride, led the NL with 261 strikeouts and tied for

the league lead with four complete games and two shutouts. The wiry right-hander attracts plenty of attention on the mound with his shoulder-length brown hair and twisting delivery. But it was his 15 victories — the fewest for a Cy Young starter over a nonshortened season — that were really noticeable for the award winner. The 2009 honors for Lincecum and Kansas City Royals ace Zack Greinke reflect a recent shift in how pitchers are evaluated. The focus has changed to more developed statistics, including some that even take into account team defense. Greinke equaled the previous low of 16 wins for a non-shortened season when he won the AL award on Tuesday. Afterward, he talked all about FIP, a mathematician’s dream that stands for Fielding Independent Pitching. Lincecum has his own favorite indicator. “To say which one I look to the most, I would just say WHIP,” he said, referring to walks plus hits allowed per inning, “just because you just limit the amount of baserunners that can hurt you.” Lincecum is facing misdemean-

or marijuana charges stemming from a traffic stop in his home state of Washington on Oct. 30. No questions were allowed about the incident in his conference call, but he acknowledged making a mistake and apologized in a prepared statement. “I know that as a professional athlete I have a responsibility to conduct myself appropriately both on and off the field,” he said. “I certainly have learned a valuable lesson through all of this and I promise to do better in the future. “I hope and expect that the matter will be resolved soon. In the meantime I am focused on preparing for the 2010 season.” Lincecum received 11 first-place votes, 12 seconds and nine thirds for 100 points in balloting released by the Baseball Writers’ Association of America. Carpenter had nine firsts, 14 seconds and seven thirds to take second with 94. Wainwright, who led the NL with 19 wins and 233 innings, had 12 first-place votes, five seconds and 15 thirds for 90 points. Trevor Hoffman, who finished behind Tom Glavine in 1998, is the only other player to get the most firsts and not win the award.

NATIONAL FOOTBALL LEAGUE

Bullock’s words may stir up rivalry with Texans By TERESA M. WALKER AP Sports Writer NASHVILLE — The fans in Houston always have hated the Titans as the team that left town without looking back. Now Tennessee linebacker Keith Bulluck may have stirred up things between the players. Bulluck said Thursday the Texans treated their 34-31 win over Tennessee like the AFC championship game than Week 2 of the regular season. He also pointed out Houston has never sniffed the playoffs so that must be why any win over a fellow AFC South team is treated like a postseason victory. The Texans (5-4) are thinking playoffs. The Titans? Well, they stuck at 3-6 after an 0-6 start, and their visit Monday night to Houston offers up a huge stage, according to Bulluck. “We’re a 3-6 team with nothing to lose. I know they have playoff aspirations and everything, so we’re really looking forward to come down to Houston and destroying all playoff thoughts and aspirations they have. Thank you. Because my season is not going the way that I intended it to,� Bulluck said. Tennessee leads this series 11-4. But the Texans have won two straight and have the chance for their second season sweep since 2004 in a rivalry finally

showing some intensity on the field. That last win on Sept. 20 featured a scuffle on the Texans’ sideline that left three players fined as Houston receiver Andre Johnson was tagged $7,500 for taking Tennessee cornerback Cortland Finnegan to the ground by the face mask after a play in which he wasn’t flagged. Houston receiver Jacoby Jones was fined $5,000 for entering the fight. Officials ejected Tennessee defensive tackle Jason Jones for throwing a punch, which the lineman denied. Still, Jones was fined $5,000 as well. Houston quarterback Matt Schaub dismissed the scuffle as just the heat of competition during a conference call Thursday with Tennessee reporters. “Obviously, it’s unfortunate how things went down with everything, but it’s a hard fought game and things like that sometimes happen,� Schaub said. Now two straight wins? Schaub said that does help build a rivalry. “It makes everything more interesting especially within the division because you know the team extremely well and the faces stay the same for a few years,� he said. “You get to know how each other plays, and then it’s just about going out and executing your plan.� Plays are one thing. Bulluck had to stop

gather into making the best show I could. I got all the lights, I got the nicest belts and I got trophies for every fighter. We’ve got the weigh in, everything to blow them up and treat them like a rock star. That’s what it’s all about. You take all their training and showcase them and they’re going to fight hard.� The event will feature 13 matches — 10 straightup MMA fights and three kick-boxing and grappling matchups. Some of the local fighters may be recognizable to area

Thursday to remember Schaub’s name and called it a very distant relationship. “We did have a relationship like in the sense that this organization used to be in Houston. We’re more like cousins. They’re like our fourthor fifth-cousin. We don’t really acknowledge them,� Bulluck said. The linebacker was on a roll, but did admit he respects the Texans’ progress from their start as an

expansion franchise that debuted in 2002 — two years after he was a firstround draft pick. “I’ve been here since they’ve been in existence, so that’s like less than 10 years that they’ve been in existence,� he said. “The last couple years they’ve been playing good football. For them to be a young expansion team, they’re making strides in the right direction. I don’t know when it comes to a rivalry.�

behind Smith on the Seymour squad with 101 stops. “Nick had an immediate impact on our team,� said Moore. “He’s very strong and explosive, and he moves very well for someone his size. “He’s very quick, athletic, and I don’t know of anybody handling him one-on-one.� The East versus West game is slated for a 12:07 p.m. kickoff on Saturday, Dec. 12, at Burke-Tarr Stadium at Carson-Newman College in Jefferson City. Several Division-I commitments will be participating in the contest, allowing uncommitted seniors the opportunity to showcase their abilities in front of college coaches and a statewide television audience. Heatherly is the third Smoky Bears player to represent SCHS in the East

sports fans. Kelby Atchley played football for Seymour, while Chris Wolf is a senior wrestler for SCHS. Austin Moore, who also attends SCHS, isn’t old enough to compete in a sanctioned MMA bout, so he’s in a grappling exhibition match. While the action at SCHS starts Saturday at 6 p.m., fans of MMA can attend the live weigh-in for the event Friday at 5 p.m. at TGI Friday’s at Governor’s Crossing. “There’s never been a show of this level put on in Sevier County,� Click said. “Locals can go right down the road and watch awesome MMA live.�

versus West game. Patrick Miller — a freshman on the Carson-Newman football team this year — played in the East/West game last season, and Will Hewitt — a sophomore on the University of Tennessee Chattanooga football team — played in the first East/West game three years ago. Smith is the second Eagles gridiron stud to be listed on the East team’s roster. Last year, Brandon Dockery — a freshman linebacker at Pikeville College in Kentucky — played for the East squad. The East/West game is scheduled on an SAT testing day, so players will be allowed to take the SAT test at Carson-Newman in the morning before the noon All-Star game. The SCHS band will be the primary band at the game, and this year’s contest will feature cheerleading squads for the first time, although lists for that squad were not made available on Thursday.

Wallace to field Toyotas next season

HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Rusty Wallace Racing is moving its Nationwide Series team from Chevrolet to Toyota next season. Wallace, who is a NASCAR analyst for ESPN, also will represent the Toyota brand on a national basis. His team will field cars for Steve Wallace and Brendan Gaughan. RWR had used Chevrolets the past two seasons. Wallace says he toured Toyotaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s racing facility in North Carolina and became convinced that the manufacturer has the best products for the Nationwide Series. The three American manufacturers in NASCAR have had to reduce their support for Nationwide teams during their financial restructuring.

Button takes pay cut to join McLaren

LONDON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Formula One champion Jenson Button admitted Thursday he took a pay cut to join McLaren and team with 2008 winner Lewis Hamilton. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am actually earning less than I would have been at Brawn, so itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not about the money and everybody involved knows that is not the case. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s something new,â&#x20AC;? Button told BBC Radio. Button said he was sad to leave the team but happy to join fellow British driver Hamilton, even though they will remain rivals. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I knew it would be a challenge to go up against Lewis in his environment and my goal since I was eight years old was to win the world championship,â&#x20AC;? Button said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve done that now and I feel in need of something else, a new challenge.â&#x20AC;? Button had won only one grand prix before capturing the 2009 title in a Brawn car. He finished 11 points ahead of Red Bullâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Sebastien Vettel of Germany.

Penske gives Power full-time ride

INDIANAPOLIS (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Penske Racing has hired Will Power to drive full time next year after giving the Indy Racing League driver a part-time gig last season. Penske made the announcement Thursday, saying it is a key element of a multiyear program with Verizon Wireless that began this year. Power joins a Penske team that features three-time Indianapolis 500 winner Helio Castroneves and Ryan Briscoe. The 28-year-old Australian will drive the No. 12 Verizon Wireless Dallara/Honda. Power drove for Penske last season while Castroneves dealt with legal issues. After Castroneves returned, Power stayed on temporarily and finished fifth at the Indianapolis 500. Penske eventually brought him back before he suffered a season-ending back injury.

Raikkonen confirms sabbatical year, 2010

LONDON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Former world champion Kimi Raikkonen, 29, confirms he will take a one-year sabbatical from Formula One next season and says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s uncertain whether he will return in 2011. The Finnish driver was replaced by Fernando Alonso at Ferrari and says he prefers to take a year off and wait for a spot with a competitive team after failing to reach a deal with McLaren. McLaren opted to sign current champion Jenson Button to partner with Lewis Hamilton. Raikkonen, the 2007 champion, said Thursday that he will â&#x20AC;&#x153;only return in 2011 if I can drive a competitive car.â&#x20AC;? He says he will look at competing in rally racing next year.

Hendrick Motorsports NASCAR drivers, from left, Jimmie Johnson, Jeff Gordon, and Mark Martin pose for photos during the ceremonies to mark the Rick Hendrick Motorsportsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; 25 anniversary of auto racing. For Hendrick Motorsports, this season has been easy as 1-2-3. OK, maybe not easy. But NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s dominant garage enters Sundayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Chase finale on the cusp of taking the top three spots in the owner standings, something it has never done.

For Hendrick, a 1-2-3 finish might make history By TIM REYNOLDS AP Sports Writer

enter the finale 1-2-3 in the standings. If they finish in those spots, Hendrick Motorsports would become the first team in NASCAR history to truly pull off that feat. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I hate to be greedy when you think about really wanting to be 1-2-3, but weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re sitting there right now with one race to go,â&#x20AC;? Hendrick said Thursday. â&#x20AC;&#x153;That would be so good for the organization. If it happens, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be just icing on the cake. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all thought about it. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve all talked about it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s our goal.â&#x20AC;? Has it happened before? Depends on perspective, really. Buck Baker, Herb Thomas and Speedy Thompson finished in the top three spots in the 1956 standings after a 56-race schedule. Baker and Thompson both raced for Carl Kiekhaefer, as did Thomas for much of

CORAL GABLES, Fla. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; For Hendrick Motorsports, this NASCAR season might seem easy as 1-2-3. OK, maybe it only looked easy. No matter if Jimmie Johnson or Mark Martin leaves Homestead-Miami on Sunday with the Chase for the Sprint Cup championship, Hendrick Motorsports â&#x20AC;&#x201D; which owns both cars â&#x20AC;&#x201D; will have plenty to celebrate. The title, whomever delivers it, will be Rick Hendrickâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ninth in NASCAR, tying him with Petty Enterprises for the most. And it will be his record-setting 12th overall, joining three truck titles. But thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a piece of history still out there for Hendrick to chase. Johnson, Martin and Jeff Gordon, all of whom race under the Hendrick flag,

that season. But NASCAR records show Thomas started that season listed as his carâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner-driver, plus also spent some time that year

with Smokey Yunick as his team owner. So technically, if Hendrick pulls this off Sunday, he would stand alone.

Ganassi hires McMurray to drive No. 1

HOMESTEAD, Fla. (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Jamie McMurray has been hired to drive the No. 1 Chevrolet for Earnhardt Ganassi Racing. The hiring has long been in the works, and gives one of the last remaining open seats for 2010 to McMurray. It also reunites McMurray with car owner Chip Ganassi, who gave the driver his first Cup ride in 2002. McMurray drove 114 races for Ganassi, but left after the 2005 season to join Roush Fenway Racing. He is losing that ride because Roush must drop one team to meet NASCARâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s four-car limit that begins next season. McMurray has three career Cup wins, including his victory at Talladega earlier this month. He set a NASCAR record by winning in his second Cup race while driving for Ganassi in 2002.

RALEIGH, N.C. (AP) — The U.S. Army plans to prevent media from covering Sarah Palin’s appearance at Fort Bragg, fearing the event will turn into political grandstanding against President Barack Obama, officials said Thursday. Fort Bragg spokesman Tom McCollum told The Associated Press that the military post’s garrison commander and other Army officials had decided to keep media away from Palin’s book signing, which will not include a speech. He said the Army did not want the Monday event to become a platform to express political opinions “directed against the commander in chief.” “The main reason is to stop this from turning into a political platform,” he said. “There are Army

regulations that basically prohibit military reservations from becoming political platforms by politicians.” He said only one politician can use that platform, “and that person does it as our commander in chief.” Palin, the former Alaska governor and 2008 Republican vice presidential nominee, has already agreed not to give a speech at Fort Bragg, McCollum said. Officials said Palin will only sign her books at the event and will not stop to pose for photographs or personalize the books. But McCollum worried that Palin’s supporters might use the media to express political opinions from the sprawling military installation that serves as a base for some 35,000 soldiers. “This will stop someone from

grandstanding,” he said. Other members of the public would be permitted to attend. Fort Bragg does not hold many promotional events, especially not with political figures, McCollum said. He added that politicians do come onto Fort Bragg in their official capacity to meet with troops or do private events, but not to hold forums or give speeches. He said the Army was fine allowing Palin to do her event, so long as it didn’t become a stage for a public political discussion via the media. Palin’s spokeswoman didn’t immediately return an e-mail message seeking comment and a spokeswoman for Palin’s publisher, HarperCollins, did not immediately return a call.

Shortage of pumpkins imperils Thanksgiving PORTLAND, Ore. (AP) — The holidays may not be so sweet this year. Nestle — which sells nearly all the canned pumpkin in the U.S. — says poor weather hurt its harvest, creating a potential shortage of its Libby’s pumpkin pie products through the holidays. In a statement to customers this week, Nestle said heavy rains made it nearly impossible to pick its pumpkins during this year’s harvest. The longer the pumpkins sit in the muddy fields, the more they deteriorate. As a result, Nestle said this week that it would not pack any more pumpkins this year, which means it may be hard to find its canned pumpkin and pumpkin pie filling product until next year’s harvest. “Mother nature had other plans for us,” the company said in an open apology to customers online. Nestle is the largest

national brand for canned pumpkin products, with 80 to 90 percent of the market, the company said. It plants a special strain of pumpkin at a farm in Morton, Ill., which provides nearly all its products. If you turned all the pumpkins on its farm to pie, it would total 90 million pies, Nestle spokeswoman Roz O’Hearn said. The company had a wet harvest last year, too, which meant it didn’t have a surplus to carry over into this year and led to spotty shortages in late summer and early fall. The harvest started in August and it began getting products on its shelves soon after, but it won’t be able to meet its normal demand. Nestle said it has seen the popularity of pumpkin grow recently as more people have become aware of its health benefits, but Thanksgiving is the company’s peak season.

The Food and Drug Administrationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s panel of lung specialists voted 11-1 in favor of new labeling about the benefits of Boehringer Ingelheimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Spiriva Handihaler, which is approved to treat lung disease. The FDA is not required to follow the groupâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s advice though it usually does. The German company submitted studies to the FDA showing Spiriva reduces specific side effects of chronic obstructive pulmonary disease.

LaShay Ogle gets brownie points for promoting 4-H on her gingerbread house.

SEVIERVILLE — In between licking their fingers clean of royal icing, sneaking bites of candy and exclaiming over fallen walls and roofs, about 80 4-H students managed to create their own gingerbread house. The group of excited children and some of their parents spent about two hours recently at Walters State Community College during the annual gingerbread house workshop hosted by the Rel Maples Institute for Culinary Arts. The college provided the walls, roof and glue (royal icing in three different colors) to piece the houses together. The students brought their own decorations. Leftover Halloween candy was used by many students, while other treats came directly from the store with bags of newly purchased edible decorations. Held each year, the workshop is one of the most popular among Sevier County 4-H’ers. “This is a hot ticket,” said extension agent Glenn Turner of the popularity of the event, and the students agree. “It’s kind of a big deal I got to do it,” said Hanna Wilbourn, 11, of Boyds Creek Elementary, as she unpacked bags of gummy LifeSavers and spice drops. “I was president this year and last and tried to get in,” she said, but wasn’t able to get in until this year.” Rachel Jenkins, 11, of Pigeon Forge Middle School shared a table with Hanna and 11-year-old Dawn Pecen of Sevierville Middle. Rachel was able to attend in 2008 and wanted to come again. “It was a lot of fun last year,” she said. The hardest part of putting the house together, she admits, is getting the walls to stay up, an opinion shared by many of the youngsters. The children did have some help. Students from Walters State were on hand to lend support and give instruction. A few children had their parents to assist. Some of the students didn’t need much instruction because they were old hands at it, having attended several times before. Audrey Love, 13, an eight-grader at New Center, was attending her third or fourth workshops. “It’s fun. I have to do one workshop for the gold leaf award and I like this one,” she said. Audrey brought a bag full of leftover Halloween candy to share with See workshop, Page B5

Networking important in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s society As I was sitting in an airport recently, I saw a little boy reading the Dr. Seuss classic, â&#x20AC;&#x153;And To Think That I Saw It on Mulberry Street.â&#x20AC;? In this day and age of electronic games and constantly-changing new-fangled products, it was interesting to see the little guy intrigued in the creative, imaginative adventures of Marco as described in Dr. Seussâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first book, published in 1937. And the incident also caused me to think about a statement made by Christine Fountain at the American Sociological Association Annual Convention. Fountain, assistant professor in the University of South Carolina Department of Sociology, said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;To a certain extent the Internet has changed things, but when it comes to finding a job in todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s tight market, it still matters who you know. Personal recommendations are crucial as a way to distinguish between potential employees.â&#x20AC;? Mark Granovetter, a sociology professor at Stanford University and author of â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Strength Of Weak Ties,â&#x20AC;? found that half of the time people locate a job or make a sale through a personal contact. And, over 80 percent of the time people get jobs or business not through close contacts but through someone they vaguely know. So what do these sociologistsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; findings have to do with Dr. Seuss? Well, before I explain, let me toss in the fact that todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job market is being flooded by wellqualified unemployed people. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, as of September the unemployment rate reached 9.8 percent, and is expected to grow well into 2010. Few companies are hiring and there are many applicants for every job opening. The wealth of candidates for each position means the balance of power in the employment marketplace has shifted back to employers. As the number of applications increase, the more employers have to rely on recommendations from people who know the applicants. Thus, the Dr. Seuss connection... In a letter to a publishing executive, Dr. Seuss (Theodor S. Geisel) explained how his first childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book came to be published. e said that after the 23rd rejection, he found himself lugging the manuscript up Madison Avenue, headed for his apartment, where he was going to dump the thing in the incinerator. According to Seuss, â&#x20AC;&#x153;If I had been going up the east side of Madison Avenue, I would probably never have become a published author. But I happened to be lugging it up the west side of Madison Avenue where I bumped into a longunseen college friend, Mike McClintock.â&#x20AC;? McClintock asked, â&#x20AC;&#x153;What are you doing these days?â&#x20AC;? Dr. Seuss replied, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an unsuccessful author of childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books. What are you doing these days?â&#x20AC;? McClintock said, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m an editor of childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s books. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re standing right in front of my office. Why donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t we step inside?â&#x20AC;? Dr. Seuss wrote in

Submitted

the letter, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Twenty minutes later I became a legitimate author with a contract, and since that day I have always made it a point to walk up the west side of Madison Avenue.â&#x20AC;? Networking, even though it was probably not even a highlyrecognized term in 1937, is what kicked-off the career of Dr. Seuss. Today, according to Dave Sherman in his Networking Central newsletter, â&#x20AC;&#x153;People have a love/hate relationship with networking. They know that it can help in every aspect of their lives; but they arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t very comfortable doing it. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s easy to learn, however, and it can actually be fun. However, with the number of highly-qualified and experienced individuals out of work today, networking needs to be taken seriously. For the applicants, it could make the difference in getting the job. For the employers, networking is the most reliable way of finding todayâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;cream of the cropâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;.â&#x20AC;?  â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Š Carl Mays, author and speaker.

Black walnut season means good taste ahead Get your taste buds ready, because itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s black walnut season. Black walnuts are often found in delicious goodies such as pies, brownies and cookies, and fall is the perfect time to prepare such treats. Black walnuts are not only tasty â&#x20AC;&#x201D; theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re healthy as well. Black walnuts help to promote weight loss and are rich in Omega-3 fatty acids. Omega-3 is missing from most Americansâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; diets because we consume a large number of processed foods. Even though black walnuts are enjoyable to consume, few still know how to harvest them and get them ready to be the delicious ingredient in a pie. If this is your first time working with black walnuts, donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be worried, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not only easy â&#x20AC;&#x201D; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fun! There are four parts to preparing walnuts: harvesting, curing, cracking and storing. Black walnuts are typically harvested in Tennessee in October. You can tell if a walnut is ripe by pressing your thumb on to the skin. If your thumb makes an indention, then the black walnut is ready to be picked. For optimal quality in the nut meats, the nuts should be picked up and hulled as soon as possible. Delaying this process can result in the meats developing a dark color and strong flavor. After harvesting the black walnuts, removing the hulls is the next step. Inventive methods of removing hulls from black wal-

nuts have ranged from spreading them out and driving over them with a car to hammering them through a hole in a board. However, you can also husk them by walking on them or by just tapping the nuts lightly with a hammer. No matter which method you may chose, make sure to wear rubber gloves while hulling since the juice from the hulls will stain your hands. Keep your rubber gloves on after you finish hulling, as you will also need them when washing excess juice and debris from the black walnuts. A neat trick to ensure quality nuts is to place the nuts in a bucket of water. Unfilled nuts will float in water, whereas nuts having a good kernel will sink, After hulling and washing the nuts, you spread them out in thin layers in a shady area to cure them. Make sure to

choose a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight. Leave to dry for two weeks. When dried, put the nuts in wire or mesh containers and store them in a cool, humid area â&#x20AC;&#x201D; perhaps a garage or basement â&#x20AC;&#x201D; until you are ready to crack them. Curing the nuts in this manner improves their flavor and lessens the bitterness or astringency of the meats. Before cracking, place the nuts in hot water and let them stand for about 24 hours. Drain and cover with fresh hot water. After a minute, drain this water and let the surface of the nuts dry. This allows the nut meats to pick up enough moisture to reduce shattering. A vise, hammer and anvil, rock or block of wood may be used to crack the nuts. Handoperated mechanical crackers offer the advantage of speed, easier cracking, along with less crushed nut meats and more kernel. A pick may also be used to get more kernel out of a nut. â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Alan Bruhin is the Sevier County agricultural extension service director. Call him at 4533695.

Advice

Woman’s trust issues cause downfall of relationship

Zits

Blondie

Baby Blues

Beetle Bailey

Dear Annie: I was with “Barry” for two years. After the first eight months of an amazing relationship, things started going downhill. Out of the blue, I felt I couldn’t trust him. He didn’t do anything in particular. For no reason, I just started checking his phone and becoming clingy and controlling. We fought over stupid things because of me. Eventually, Barry couldn’t take the questioning and accusations anymore, and I couldn’t stand myself for treating him this way, so we broke up. We love each other and have a hard time staying apart, so we keep going back and forth trying to work it out. But I still have a problem with trust. Barry is a good man, and I know he wouldn’t cheat. Why can’t I let this damaging, insecure behavior go? We have great times hanging out together but always end up fighting. Then we split for a couple of days and then try again. It’s an endless cycle. What do I do about this relationship? And how do I stop worrying about what he’s doing, why he is on the phone or who he’s talking to? -Insecure Girlfriend Dear Girlfriend: Either Barry is subtly behaving in a way that makes you distrust him, or you are so insecure that you are subconsciously sabotaging your relationship. In order to change the dynamic between the two of you, please get some couples counseling and work on ways to modify your behavior so the relationship has a chance to move forward.

Dear Annie: My son is marrying a very sweet girl next June, and I am very happy for them. The problem is, the bride’s mother does not want me to have anything to do with the wedding and has thrown a fit about my involvement. My son and his girlfriend caved and did not defend me. At first, the bride asked me to address the invitations and handle the photographs. However, when her mom found out, I was no longer welcome to help in any way. She says as the groom’s mother, it is not my place. Yet her older son recently married, and she played a huge part in that event. Why is she depriving me of the same pleasure? So far, I have not said a word. However, I was going to help pay for the wedding, and now I don’t intend to contribute one red cent. I have not been kept informed of the progress of the wedding plans and have lost all my joy for the big day. I’m also hurt that my son and his bride won’t stand up for me. What should I do? -- Deeply Depressed Texas Mom Dear Texas Mom: We feel sorry for your son, who is going to have a barracuda for a mother-in-law and a bride who is too intimidated to speak up. Please don’t turn this into a grudge match. Step back graciously, relax and allow

yourself to be a guest at the wedding. If you have promised to contribute toward the cost and have changed your mind, be sure to tell your son so he can plan accordingly. The way you handle this disappointment will set the tone for your future relationship with your son and his wife. Tread carefully. Dear Annie: I had a good laugh at your answer to “Sad Wife,” whose husband was “wonderful,” but only wanted sex once a month. You told her he could be depressed or need to have his testosterone checked. My husband only wanted sex once a month. I discovered he was having an affair with the mother of my daughter’s best friend. I, too, thought he was a workaholic, but the business trips and overtime stopped as soon as his affair was exposed. Maybe instead of having his testosterone checked, that wife should check out where he really is when he is “never home.” -- Took the Money and Got Even in Texas Dear Texas: That is, unfortunately, always a possibility. We hope it’s not the case for “Sad.” Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Donna Hicks and Ginny Huxtable are in the craft room at the Widows Ministry Center on Park Road, where the sale of their crafts provides funds for charity.

‘Widow’s Mite’ helps mission SEVIERVILLE — The “Widow’s Mite” was demonstrated as Donna Hicks and Ginny Huxtable presented a check for $8,000 to Dr. Andrew Dev of Jesus Mission to be used for a building in Chennai, India. The facility will provide free medical help for patients that cannot afford it. Dev and his wife, Dr. Jeyarani Dev, lost their clinic when, they say, Islamic owners found out they were Christians. The widows at the center — located on the campus of Smoky Mountain Children’s Home — began craft projects (needle-

Sales mounted up. The women realized the culmination of their efforts as they presented the check to Dev and the Jesus Mission, which was established to give healing to the street and slum dwellers of India. This global outreach is an ongoing project for the residents of the Iris Vest Widows Ministry Center. Groups are welcome to tour the facility and participate in craft sales of handmade items by the

Actor Kirk Cameron will speak Sunday at both morning worship services of First Baptist Church of Sevierville, a day after he headlines the 23rd annual Hearts On Fire gathering in Gatlinburg. The former child star, who has dedicated his adult life to Christian causes, will speak at the church at the invitation of associate pastor of youth Scott Carter, who founded and presides over Hearts On Fire ministry and got Cameron to speak at that event. Cameron will deliver the message at the 8:15 and 10:45 a.m. services at First Baptist. Carter started Hearts On Fire soon after he returned to Sevierville to become the youth minister at First Baptist. “We’re really growing,” Carter said of Hearts On

Fire, which is aimed at students in middle and high schools. “We have kids coming from nine states and we expect over 7,000 to attend this weekend. We actually had to shut off registration because we were going to outgrow our facilities.” Cameron will speak during the 2 p.m. program Saturday at the Gatlinburg Convention Center. “The purpose of Hearts On Fire is to introduce kids to Christ who do not know Christ,” Carter said, “and for those who do, to encourage them in their spiritual walk. We have a lot of great things for the teenagers.” The event will be held Friday and Saturday and feature, in addition to Cameron, Christian musical artists such as Charlie Hall, Steve Fee and his band and Aaron Shust. Cameron was in

Sevierville in May to give his testimony at Women of Joy, a conference presented by Phil Waldrep Ministries that was held at the Events Center. He has also spoken at Christian gatherings in Pigeon Forge. Cameron starred in the 1980s hit show “Growing Pains,” which made him a teen idol. He recently starred in the Christian film “Fireproof.” The father of six currently produces and cohosts the TV program “The Way of the Master,” which explores how to share Christianity effectively. Before “Fireproof” hit theaters last fall, he had appeared in movies based on the “Left Behind” series of Christian novels. He and his wife Chelsea Noble, whom he met on “Growing Pains,” founded Camp Firefly for seriously ill children and their families 20 years ago.
