Economy cuts into Norton Creek

INSIDE

By DEREK HODGES Staff Writer

5Dear Santa Letters to Santa in today’s issue of The Mountain Press Inside

GATLINBURG — Parts of one of Sevier County’s most well-known high-end subdivisions are headed to the foreclosure auction block after its developers found themselves cutting their loses with the real estate market crash. Two parcels in the Norton Creek community, which is located off the Spur between Pigeon Forge and Gatlinburg, valued at more than

$4.8 million are set to be sold to the highest bidder after the developers went into default on loans from Silly Creek Investments LLC. Robin Turner, one of the owners of Norton Creek and its main overseer, admits the real estate market crash blindsided the ritzy neighborhood, sending new home sales crashing just as things at Norton Creek were really taking off. Especially hard hit in the current recession have been sales of highend homes, further adding to the

woes at the local development. “It has not performed as well as we had hoped it would,” Turner concedes. “In the last two years that’s definitely a true statement. We’re having to protect what we can.” Turner is quick to point out the sale does not mean the end of Norton Creek, just something of a change in direction. The existing development is part of Phase 1 of the overall plan for the community, and Turner says work there will

continue as expected. However, Norton Creek LLC will lose control of property that was slated to be part of a future stage of construction. “We’re going to continue with our plans on Phase 1; we still have the same goals. We’re focusing on our current development,” Turner says. “We’re just having to protect what we can.” That means, he explains, regretSee Norton Creek, Page A4

PIGEON FORGE — Planning Commission members Tuesday voted unanimously to override city staff’s opinion in approving an item in their monthly meeting, at the same time offering a ruling on a city ordinance that seems to contradict a previous board ruling. At the center of the debate is a rather simple site plan presented by Ross Ogle Jr., who wants to build a ticket sales and orientation facility for his zip line business on property he leases on the Parkway. The only problem is that part of the building encroaches on an adjacent lot Ogle also leases, making city staff believe it violates a city ordinance. That regulation stipulates that only one principal building may be located on any given lot. City staffers read that to mean that only one business may operate on a property, pointing to an April 2008 Planning Commission vote that follows that guideline. About two or three feet of the proposed 500square foot sales office would be built over the property line, encroaching on land filled by Fantasy Golf, another Ogle business.

Dorseys provide big boost to Santa Fund

A $4,000 gift from Tommy and Denise Dorsey of Sevierville has boosted The Santa Fund. The drive now stands at $15,084. Tommy Dorsey said he and his wife made the contribution in memory of their fathers, Stanley Dorsey and Gordon “Bud” Ireland. The Dorseys also appreciate that The Santa Fund benefits senior citizens as well as children. “I understand children are the future, but Denise and I believe not enough attention and effort is given to our seniors,” Tommy Dorsey said in making the donation. He said he hopes Sevier County will step up in the final days of the drive to support The Santa Fund.

THP on lookout for drunk drivers Submitted reports

Drunken driving is one of America’s deadliest crimes. Last year 327 people died in highway crashes in Tennessee involving a driver or motorcycle rider with a blood alcohol concentration (BAC) of .08 or higher. As part of National Drunk & Drugged Driving Prevention Month, the Tennessee Highway Patrol will be stepping up its enforcement crackdown to find and remove impaired drivers from Tennessee roadways. Troopers will be conducting more than 100 sobriety and driver license checkpoints now

through the New Year’s holiday to get drunken drivers off the road. In Sevier County there will be a checkpoint the afternoon of Dec. 23 on State Road 338, and again the evening of Dec. 26 at the intersection of White School Road and Sugarloaf Road. “Ensuring the safety and general welfare of the public isn’t just a cliché, but a mission the Department of Safety takes seriously,” said Safety Commissioner Dave Mitchell. The holiday season is one of the deadliest and most dangerous times of the year due to an increase in impaired driv-

ing. According to the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration, last December 888 people were killed nationwide in crashes that involved a drunken driver with a blood alcohol concentration of .08 or higher. In Tennessee last December 2008, eight people were killed in crashes that involved a drunken driver with a known BAC of .08 or higher, compared to 12 people in December 2007. The 2009 Christmas holiday period begins Dec. 24 at 6 p.m. and runs through Dec. 27 at 11:59 p.m. During the 2008 Christmas holiday period, nine people were killed in traffic

crashes on Tennessee roadways. Alcohol was involved in nearly 29 percent of those crashes, and four of the seven motorists killed were not wearing safety restraints. The New Year’s holiday period begins at 6 p.m. Dec. 31 and will end at 11:59 p.m. Jan. 3. Last year 12 people were killed during the New Year’s holiday period, and 42 percent of the fatalities occurred in alcoholrelated crashes. During the past decade, research shows the number of drunken female drivers involved in fatal crashes has increased in 10 states, including Tennessee.

Tai chi classes offered Submitted reports Arthritis affects 1.5 million Tennesseans and is the leading cause of disability in the United States. It is a chronic disease that targets the joints of the body. Common symptoms include joint pain, aching, stiffness and swelling. Though arthritis tends to be debilitating, it can be effectively managed through a variety of methods. There is growing evidence that low-impact, slow motion exercise is an essential tool in relieving arthritic pain and fatigue. On Jan. 21, Sevier County Extension will be offering an Arthritis Foundation tai chi program. The seven-session program is designed for people with arthritis to reduce pain and stiffness, help maintain or improve mobility, muscle strength, memory and balance. Individuals of all ages and mobility levels may benefit from the low-impact course. Classes will be held every Thursday, Jan. 21 through Feb. 25, with one additional class on Feb. 23. Each class will be from 6 to 7 p.m. and be held at the UT Extension Office near the Fairgrounds. The cost of the seven sessions is $40. The Harvard Medical School referred to tai chi as “medication in motion” because of its overall health benefits. For more information or to sign up for the program, contact Linda Hyder, Sevier County UT Extension, at 453-3695 or e-mail to lhyder@utk.edu. Registration is needed by Jan. 15.

In Memoriam

Stewart “Sy” Brent Chandler

Stewart “Sy” Brent Chandler, age 55, of Sevierville passed away Tuesday, December 15, 2009.

Survivors: brothers, Richard and Mary Chandler, Charles and Gwendolyn Chandler; sister, Ruby and Dr. Henry Lindsey; brother-in-law, Walt Branner; aunt and uncle, Frank and Martha Bowden; several nieces, nephews, friends and relatives.

fully having to let the property in default go to ensure money is available for completing the first phase. That will result in a loss of more than 125 acres in auctions set for 10 and 11 a.m. Dec. 29, according to classified advertisements that ran in The Mountain Press this week. It seems likely, as is usually the case, the group holding the note will buy the property. If that’s the case, Turner believes the group could continue work there itself or sell it to a likeminded organization. “They have the same goals for the property we do,” Turner says.

the future of the development, he is forthcoming about concerns he shares with most everyone in the real estate industry. “There is great concern out there,” Turner says. “With real estate, no one knows what the future will hold. If I was to tell you I wasn’t concerned, I think you’d have a reason to suggest I be locked up in an insane asylum.” Still, he says other holdings he has a stake in are doing well, boiling the issue down to just finding ways to survive the slump. “WonderWorks and the other attractions we have here and in other locations are doing well,” Turner says. “We’re just focusing on what we can do now and waiting it out.”

sales facility for that operation wouldn’t be sharing a lot with the proposed building, city staffers still felt the plan would violate the ordinance and, therefore, recommended it be denied. “Our recommendation is that it not be approved based on those reasons,” Chief Planner David Taylor said. The ensuing discussion wended its way through a number of possible solutions to the concerns, from resubdividing the properties to subleasing the space to submitting a new plan that shows all the Ogles’ businesses in the area as one planned unit development, which would avoid the problem entirely. At one point Ogle even suggested that he build the facility as part of Fantasy Golf and operate it as the zip line sales center, an idea city attorney Jim Gass said would not be a proper or legal solution. Taylor also pointed out the building could be moved a few feet over to be entirely on one lot that does not have another business on it. Ogle dismissed the suggestion. “I just don’t think it would be as appealing to the public,” he said. After much debate, it seemed commission member Bill Howell was ready to move. “Guys, I’ve looked at it,” he told the group. “The only thing that’s encroaching is some landscaping. I understand this is a gray area, but I think we can approve this.” Howell made a motion to do just that and it got unanimous support. That meant the group later had to offer its opinion as the Board of Zoning Appeals, which is made up of the same membership, that a reading of the ordinance actually does

show it says two buildings, rather than businesses. That also got a thumbs-up from the full board. On one of its lightest agendas ever, the Planning Commission also voted to approve a request from MF Billboards LLC to relocate and consolidate a billboard on the Parkway in front of the Belle Island site to the parking lot in front of Alf’s at 1965 Parkway. A planned unit development for Lots 1-5 of Brookstone Village wasn’t so lucky, though. The group last month rejected the proposal, with no one there to represent it because of a breakdown in communications between the planning staff and the developer. This time, though engineer David Hurst was at the meeting to defend the plan, the group once again voted unanimously to reject it on concerns about possible side effects of the proposal. The plan calls for locating five new 24-foot by 24-foot units on Brookstone Way in an area that the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation has identified as a wet weather conveyance area — in layman’s terms, a ditch that drains the development when it rains. The idea of filling that in to build the units has worried several planning officials. “The front of these cabins is going to be in that ditch,” Howell said. “I can understand their plight, but this lot is just not suitable for

any more development.” Beyond the drainage issues, city planning staff point out the construction would require cutting into a steep bank behind the properties that supports several other units. Though the developer plans to build a retaining wall, Taylor still worried the work could compromise the foundations of those structures. Hurst defended the plan, pointing out it has all the needed signatures, including from stormwater officials, and meets all city requirements. “We meet all the subdivision regulations and all the criteria the Planning Commission has set forth for this type of development,” Hurst said. “It’s not anything that’s going to be done haphazardly.” Hurst pointed out the plan calls for putting in underground detention basins to deal with the runoff issue, while a civil engineer has said nothing in the plan would cause problems for the existing structures. The group wasn’t convinced, though, and this time went with the staff’s recommendation in their denial. Also denied was a variance request before the Board of Zoning Appeals that would have allowed vehicles at a multi-family dwelling to back onto a public road, something that’s not allowed under city codes.

Knob Circle was slated to be a single-family home, but the builder has since decided to put a pair of apartments in the basement. He also constructed the parking with only the option for backing onto the street despite not having the needed permission. As it turns out, the property owner may have done more harm for his plans than good by bringing them before the commission. During the discussion, board member Jay Ogle pointed out the lot the structure sits on is only 9,900-square-feet, but city ordinances require a 10,000-square-foot lot for duplexes. It’s unclear if that will net the owner a citation. n dhodges@themountainpress.com

Nation/World Briefs 50 needles found in body of child

BRASILIA, Brazil (AP) — A 2-year-old Brazilian boy has as many as 50 metal sewing needles inside his body and a doctor treating the boy said Wednesday they were apparently stuck there one by one. Dr. Luiz Cesar Soltoski told The Associated Press that surgeons hope to remove most of the needles — some as long as 2 inches (5 centimeters)— but because some are stuck in his lungs, they have to wait until the child’s breathing improves. Some cannot be removed.

Executive pay info required

WASHINGTON (AP) — Federal regulators voted Wednesday to require companies to reveal more information about how they pay their top executives amid a public outcry over compensation. The Securities and Exchange Commission voted 4-to-1 to expand the disclosure requirements for public companies. Company policies that encouraged excessive risk-taking and rewarded executives for delivering short-term profits were blamed for fueling the financial crisis. The SEC also changed a formula that critics say allowed companies to understate how much their senior executives are paid.

Stewardess call alerted pilots

WASHINGTON (AP) — A single call from a flight attendant to the pilots of the Northwest Airlines plane that overshot Minneapolis catapulted the cockpit crew from complacency to chaos. Interviews with the flight crew and other documents released Wednesday by the National Transportation Safety Board indicate the pilots were completely unaware of their predicament until the moment the intercom rang. They were unaware that they had flown their Airbus A320 with 144 passenger more than 100 miles past their destination, that air traffic controllers and their airline’s dispatchers had been struggling to reach them for more than an hour, or that the military was at that moment readying fighter jets for an intercept mission.

Home building rises in November

WASHINGTON (AP) — The economy is weak enough to keep inflation in check but strong enough to increase the pace of home construction and raise hopes for a sustained recovery. That was the picture sketched Wednesday by government data showing an economy growing, however slowly. Higher energy prices sent overall consumer prices higher in November. But after stripping out volatile energy and food prices, inflation disappeared last month.

Electrolux eyes move to Charlotte

CHARLOTTE, N.C. (AP) — Swedish appliance maker Electrolux will move its North American headquarters from Georgia and consolidate hundreds of white-collar jobs in North Carolina’s largest city, the company and Gov. Beverly Perdue said Wednesday. The move would bring about 740 jobs to Charlotte. In return, the company could receive tax breaks and direct grants worth up to $26 million from the state, and could receive more from local governments.

Rock slide said factor in death

CHATTANOOGA (AP) — A county emergency official said the rock slide blocking U.S. Highway 64 is not just an inconvenience but is costing lives. Owen Hensley said at a meeting at Copper Hill that his brother died from a heart attack and was not able to use Highway 64 to get to the hospital

in Chattanooga. Hensley said the blocked highway in Polk County probably wasn’t a factor but it could be for someone else who has a medical emergency.

Academy: Religious tolerance improved AIR FORCE ACADEMY, Colo. (AP) — The Air Force Academy says religious tolerance has improved dramati-

cally since allegations five years ago that evangelical Christians harassed cadets who didn’t share their faith. Academy superintendent Michael Gould says the changes are the result of a topdown campaign to foster respect and accommodate even nonbelievers. A task force concluded in 2005 there was no overt discrimination by evangelicals but said the

academy didn’t accommodate the religious needs of some cadets and staff.

Study: Sea level rise accelerated

NEW YORK (AP) — Global warming in this century might raise sea levels more than expected in future centuries, says a study that looked at what happened at a time when

Neanderthals roamed Europe. Unless global warming is curbed or expensive measures are taken to hold back rising water, the projected sea level rise could submerge about one-third of Florida, southern Manhattan, much of Bangladesh and almost all the Netherlands, for example, researchers said.

Lawsuit claims hiring bias NASHVILLE (AP) — A LaVergne man is suing Wilson County, claiming officials regularly discriminate against blacks when hiring. The suit, which asks for class action status, was filed Friday in federal court in Nashville. It claims that when Karl Tartt, an African American, applied for a job with Wilson County as an animal control officer his application was thrown in the trash and his calls were ignored for a month. When someone finally spoke with him he was told there had not been any open position for six or seven months. This was despite the job

having been advertised within that period. The suit alleges such treatment is commonplace and that most jobs in Wilson County are never advertised but simply filled through word-ofmouth. Wilson County attorney Mike Jennings said on Tuesday he had not yet been served with the suit, although he has seen a copy of it. “I can tell you that Wilson County has an anti-discrimination policy and we do not believe any acts of discrimination in hiring have occurred,” he said. The suit states that a search of

public records found only 10 job openings were advertised in newspapers in the five-and-a-half-year period between 2003 to June 2, 2009. Nine of those positions were advertised exclusively within Wilson County. The suit further claims some of those 10 advertisements were not placed until after the jobs had been filled and others were placed only very shortly before that. Reports filed by the county show 145 people were hired between June 2004 and June 2007, the suit states, which means at least 135 positions were likely filled by word-of-mouth during that period.

Police arrested a man on charges of hitting a college professor after she discovered him seated at her office desk. Campus spokesman Chuck Cantrell said William Charles Moore II has been charged with simple assault and aggravated assault in the Tuesday incident at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Moore is not a student.

commentary

Government often pain in the neck I just got a free golf cart. Actually, it cost me $6,490 — but the dealer, Colin Riley of Tucson, Ariz., points out that there’s a $6,480 federal tax credit on such vehicles. Riley runs ads that say: “FREE ELECTRIC CAR … ! (freeelectriccar.com)” Some consumers probably assume it’s a car-dealer scam, but it’s not. It’s an Uncle Sam scam. The tax code is outrageously complex and damaging in many ways, but it is made especially complex and damaging when congressmen use it “creatively” to manipulate us into doing things they deem “socially constructive.” These are things that always bestow advantages on some politically connected manufacturers at the expense of others. After all, you were either planning to buy a golf cart or you weren’t. If you were, the policy is unnecessary. If you weren’t, you were induced to spend money on that product rather than something else. The unseen victim is whoever would have sold you the alternative product. Such manipulation is at the heart of the entire “green” strategy. The Wall Street Journal reports that business is busy taking advantage of the tax credit. “Is that about the coolest thing you’ve ever heard?” Roger Gaddis of Ada Electric Cars in Oklahoma said. I thought “free” golf carts were outrageous enough that the publicity would embarrass Congress into killing the tax credit. I thought the media would be all over it. But even though Riley has received thousands of calls for cars — and sold hundreds — he hasn’t seen much media attention. The Journal commented, “You can’t blame a guy for exploiting loopholes that Congress offers.” In Florida, Tony Colangelo also sells subsidized cars. He said the golf-cart credit is — good for politicians: “It’s all (about) going green. They want all those gas vehicles off the street. They’d rather have the electric than anything.” The golf-cart boom follows an IRS ruling that many golf carts qualify for the electriccar credit. A credit is better than a subsidy since you keep money the IRS would have taken. Still, it is an insidious form of manipulation used to benefit some forms of industry at the expense of others. Colangelo says: “I never, in my entire life, got anything back from the government, and I’ve always paid taxes. Why shouldn’t the people who worked hard for their money get something back?” Because government shouldn’t be in the business of taking money and giving it back! That just gives the venal cretins more power over our lives. After I drove the car onto my first show last week, viewers wrote in asking how they could get one. But others got the concept. Sirsickofit writes: “People, please stop asking for information on the golf carts. ... Stossel is trying to make a point!! If you purchase these carts you will be adding to the problems.” True. I’d like my taxes (and government spending) cut, too, but I don’t want a manipulative favor from government — I’ll give my cart to charity. The electric-vehicle subsidy is ludicrous not just because it is a form of industrial policy — which almost always picks losers — it’s also destructive because it creates more pollution, not less. That’s because much of the electricity needed for their operation comes from burning coal. As the National Research Council puts it (http://tinyurl.com/yegouhu): “Although they produce no emissions during operation, they rely on electricity powered largely by fossil fuels for their fuel and energy intensive battery manufacturing.” In addition, check out the complexity of the credit (http://tinyurl.com/ycsdkqu): “(1) $2,500, plus (2) $417 for each kilowatt hour of traction battery capacity in excess of 4 kilowatt hours. Section 30D(b)(1) limits the amount of the credit allowed for a vehicle to amounts ranging from $7,500 to $15,000, depending on the gross vehicle weight rating of the vehicle.” How many hours will accountants and tax lawyers waste over that? Congress makes life worse every time it meets, and green hysteria sucks so many good things from the country. Government is a meddling presumptuous pain in the neck. The sooner we get it to stop manipulating us through tax laws, the better. — John Stossel hosts a show on the Fox Business Channel and is the author of “Myth, Lies, and Downright Stupidity: Get Out the Shovel — Why Everything You Know is Wrong.” (C)2009 JFS Productions Inc.

Editorial

The doctor is in

Hospital campus taking shape and leading us into a bright health care future If you haven’t driven down Middle Creek Road lately and seen the new hospital campus, you really ought to squeeze it into your holiday schedule. It’s quite something to see. Doctors are already situated in the Dr. Robert F. Thomas Professional Building. Construction on the main hospital building and the Thompson Cancer Center continues. By spring we should have everything up and running throughout the new campus, although weather could still delay the expected completion date. When we talk about all of the assets Sevier County has, we sometimes forget about our health care system. Many specialists based in Knoxville keep office hours in Sevierville, saving a trip out of town for many seeking specialized care. With a new hospital campus about to open, you can expect many more specialists and general practice physicians to find a home in Sevier County. Having

a brand new facility is inviting to many doctors looking to relocate or expand their practices. The new campus also will be home to Sevier County Ambulance Service, which will move across the street into improved quarters. It’s important to remember that the new Fort Sanders Sevier Medical Center, which will be named LeConte Medical Center when it officially opens, is not just a project of owner Covenant Health. This is a true collaborative effort involving local citizens, local government and one Dolly Parton. The land on which the new hospital is being built was a gift from the city of Sevierville and county government. The Thomas Foundation has been raising money to pay for items that won’t be included automatically with the new campus. And Parton performed a benefit concert in 2007 at Smokies Park that generated around $500,000, matching it with a personal gift of her own. She

also has been generous through the years donating items for the Thomas Ball auction. Many people and businesses in this community have made substantial contributions to the Thomas Foundation drive. Even if you haven’t forked over cash, you have helped make this new hospital possible simply by using our local doctors and medical center. Not everyone can write a check and make a contribution to a worthy cause, but everyone needs health care. As our county grows and our new hospital campus proceeds, we’ll have fewer reasons to drive out of town for medical care. That saves time and money, and still ensures you get quality medical care and attention. Drive down Middle Creek. Look to one side and see what we have now, then glance over at what is rising from the dirt of what once was a textile mill. Look at the future of health care in Sevier County.

I am sure the Department of Tourism is managed by competent people, but as a taxpayer, I expect my elected representatives, at all levels, to be very judicious with taxpayer money. I would hope they carefully would scrutinize payments by all departments. Mr. Robinson appears to be challenging a practice that has plagued our community far too long — the abdication of responsibility to one or two people in city government. of the city budget, expenditures Pigeon Forge’s Robinson earns Discussion and contracts should be engaged in by all the commissioners. Once again I say, good for praise for stand on spending you, Commissioner Robinson. Editor: Kathleen L. Manscill This letter is in support of Pigeon Forge Pigeon Forge City Commissioner Randal Robinson and his Gatlinburg, Knoxville TVA Employees Credit Union, Food City, Sam’s Club, Hank’s Pizza and Oak Tree Lodge.

ATHLETE OF THE YEAR

Woods voted top athlete of decade By DOUG FERGUSON AP Golf Writer Even after a shocking sex scandal that tarnished Tiger Woods, it was tough to ignore what he achieved on the golf course. He won 64 times around the world, including 12 majors, and hoisted a trophy on every continent golf is played. He lost only one time with the lead going into the final round. His 56 PGA Tour victories in one incomparable decade were more than anyone except four of golf’s greatest players won in their careers. Woods was selected Wednesday as the Athlete of the Decade by members of The Associated Press in a vote that was more about 10 years of performance than nearly three weeks of salacious headlines. Just like so many of his victories, it wasn’t much of a contest. Woods received 56 of the 142 votes cast since last month by editors at U.S. newspapers that are members of the AP. More than half of the ballots were returned after the Nov. 27 car accident outside his Florida home that set off sensational tales of infidelity. Lance Armstrong, a cancer survivor who won the Tour de France six times this decade, finished second with 33 votes. He was followed by Roger Federer, who won more Grand Slam

singles titles than any other man, with 25 votes. Record-setting Olympic swimmer Michael Phelps came in fourth with 13 votes, followed by New England quarterback Tom Brady (6) and sprinter Usain Bolt (4). Five other athletes received one vote apiece. Woods, who has not been seen since the accident and has issued only three statements on his Web site, was not made available to comment about the award. Few other athletes have changed their sport quite like Woods. His influence has been so powerful that TV ratings spiked whenever he played, even more when he has been in contention. Prize money has quadrupled since he joined the PGA Tour because of his broad appeal. A new image emerged quickly in the days following his middle-of-the-night accident, when he ran his SUV over a fire hydrant and into a tree. He became the butt of late-night TV jokes, eventually confessed that he “let my family down” with “transgressions” and lost a major sponsorship from Accenture. Even so, AP members found his work on the golf course over the last 10 years without much of a blemish. Woods took an early lead in balloting, and continued to receive roughly the same percentage of votes throughout the process. “Despite the tsunami of negative publicity that will

Rob Carr/AP file

This is an Aug. 20, 2006, file photo showing Tiger Woods celebrating after winning 88th PGA Championship golf tournament at Medinah Country Club Sunday, in Medinah, Ill. likely tarnish his image, there’s no denying that Woods’ on-the-course accomplishments set a new standard of dominance within his sport while making golf more accessible to the masses,” wrote Stu Whitney, sports editor of the Sioux Falls (S.D.) Argus Leader. “The only proof needed are the television ratings when Tiger plays in a golf tournament, compared to those events when others

have to carry the load.” Woods tumbled from the pinnacle of his sport in just about three weeks. The 10 years that preceded that fall, however, represented perhaps the greatest decade in golf history. He won the career Grand Slam three times over, including one U.S. Open by a record 15 shots at Pebble Beach and another U.S. Open on a mangled leg in a playoff at Torrey Pines. He

twice won the British Open at St. Andrews, the home of golf, by a combined 13 shots. Woods won 56 times on the PGA Tour this decade, a rate of 30 percent that is unprecedented in golf. Nine of those victories were by at least eight shots. He was No. 1 in the world ranking for all but 32 weeks in the decade, that when he was revamping his swing. He did his best work in

the biggest events. Along with his 12 majors this decade — he has 14 overall, four short of the record held by Jack Nicklaus — Woods was runner-up in six other majors. He won 14 times out of 27 appearances in the World Golf Championships. Woods finished the decade with $81,547,410 in earnings from his PGA Tour events, an average of $482,529 per tournament.

Johnson says Ginn a no-show for race

Tigers take a trip

DAVIE, Fla. (AP) — NFL rushing leader Chris Johnson says speedy Miami Dolphins receiver Ted Ginn Jr. became a noshow when they arranged a foot race during a pool party on Miami Beach. “We were going to race down Ocean Drive,” Johnson said Wednesday. “I walked down to the street, and he never showed up.” The subject arose during a conference call with South Florida media. Johnson and his Tennessee Titans play the Dolphins on Sunday. Johnson said the race was arranged at a party last offseason attended by Ginn, Dolphins teammate Joey Porter and other NFL

ORLANDO, Fla. — The Pigeon Forge Tigers boys’ basketball team headed out of school early Wednesday morning and hopped a 9 a.m. bus to catch a flight out of Knoxville for the final destination of Orlando, Fla., for four days filled with fun and games with weather forecasts in the mid-70s. The Tigers will be playing in the KSA Holiday Classic hoops tournament, but the trip most certainly won’t be all business for the Pigeon Forge bunch, who paid for the jaunt through many dedicated hours of fundraising efforts. The entire team arrived at its destination in Orlando at 2 p.m Wednesday, and the group hit the ground running. After checking into their accommodations and then organizing a trip to some Disney food complex, the team was on another bus at about 6 p.m. Wednesday to go to an Orlando Magics basketball game. “We’ve been kind of rushed, we really haven’t had time to relax, but it’s been fun and we’re having a good time,” said Tigers coach Jonathan Shultz. “The trip down here went well.” The Tigers will get some rest before tonight’s 5 p.m. contest against the Episcopal School of Acadiana Falcons out of Louisiana.

players. “Him and Joey Porter were talking about how he could beat me,” Johnson said. “When it came down to it, he was a no-show.” Johnson has rushed for 1,626 yards this season and could become the sixth player to reach the 2,000 milestone. He had a time of 4.24 in the 40-yard dash at the NFL Combine last year and considers himself the league’s fastest player. So he’s faster than Ginn? “That’s not even a legitimate question,” Johnson said. Is he faster than Olympic champion Usain Bolt? “That’s a better question,” Johnson said. “I think I would beat him like

Bulluck named AFC defensive player of week By TERESA M. WALKER AP Sports Writer NASHVILLE — Titans linebacker Keith Bulluck has been named the AFC defensive player of the week for picking off two passes and turning in 10 tackles. Bulluck’s two interceptions in last week’s 47-7 win over St. Louis was the second multi-interception game of his career. Bulluck also tied for the team-lead in tackles as the defense held the NFL’s second-leading

rusher Steven Jackson to a season-low 47 yards on 19 carries. It was the fifth time this season Bulluck has tied or led the team in tackles. This makes the second AFC defensive player of the week award for Bulluck in his career with Tennessee, his first since Week 3 of the 2007 season. The 10-year veteran will be a free agent after this season. He was Tennessee’s first-round choice in 2000.

Make an effort to get to know rude mother-in-law

Dear Annie: My husband, “Kevin,” and I have been together 25 years. Our relationship is as wonderful today as on our first date. My mother-in-law, however, hates me. She says I wrecked her only son’s life because I can’t have children. This same woman called her son two days before our wedding and told him to “choose.” Kevin told her, “I’m going to spend the rest of my life with the woman I love. I have nothing more to say to you.” And he hung up. Now, all these years later, she still treats me like some stranger passing her on the street. When she calls, my husband goes into another room to talk to her, like everything has to be a big secret. Once, I answered his phone, and as soon as I said, “Hello,” she said, “Where is my son?” What do I do? This affects my husband, I’m sure. We moved across the country to get away from the drama, but it comes back every time she calls. — Troubled Dear Troubled: Mom continues to behave rudely because she gets away with it. Although your husband is supportive, he takes the path of least resistance when it comes to his mother. With some hard work, you could change this dynamic. Call her often just to chat. Ask about her activities, her friends, her family members. Be solicitous and cheery for 10 minutes, and then say how nice it was to talk to her and goodbye. Do it again within the week. If you keep at it, regardless of her response, she will get used to talking to you and may even look forward to your calls. Otherwise, be grateful you live so far

away. Dear Annie: I have a good friend who constantly corrects everyone for mispronouncing words or using them incorrectly. Her grammatical oversight sometimes causes embarrassment to the person she is correcting, as she does this out loud and in front of whoever is around. My friend may feel she is doing her part to rid the world of improper grammar, but it really hurts to be constantly judged. It makes us hesitant to speak freely for fear of reprimand. Should we say anything? Or remain — Timid in Connecticut Dear Timid: By all means, speak up. It is rude to correct the grammar of anyone who is not your child or your student. Take your friend aside and nicely explain that correcting an adult, especially in public, is condescending. Tell her it makes her friends reluctant to have a conversation with her, and because you know it is not her intent to insult people, you are certain she will make an effort to stop. Dear Annie: I am a 50ish, single (by choice) woman and am sick to death of the whiny wives who can’t fathom why their husbands stray. Here are a few suggestions for them to make sure he isn’t looking elsewhere: 1. Tell him out loud

every day that you love him. 2. Respect him and his opinions — he is not always wrong. Be his partner, not his adversary. 3. If you’re lucky enough to be a stay-athome wife, clean the house once in a while. 4. Get a sitter and go out on a “date” with him at least once a month. 5. Do something special for him. Fix him his favorite meal. When you’re out shopping for yourself or the kids, buy him a little gift. 6. Update your hairstyle, lose those 10 pounds, and stop wearing sweats and old T-shirts. If you don’t care about your appearance, he certainly won’t, either. 7. On your list of priorities, he should be No. 1, before your children, your parents, your career, etc. If he’s not the most important person in your life, your marriage can’t be very important to you. Your kids will grow up and move away, and then what? If you’ve tried all these things and still feel your marriage is not working, run to the nearest qualified marriage counselor — together, if possible. — Thought You’d Like to Know Annie’s Mailbox is written by Kathy Mitchell and Marcy Sugar, longtime editors of the Ann Landers column.

Intel faces antitrust lawsuit from FTC NEW YORK (AP) — The Federal Trade Commission sued Intel Corp. on Wednesday, looking to block tactics it says the world’s biggest chip maker has used to snuff out competition. The FTC said Intel, which makes the microprocessors that run personal computers, has shut rivals out of the market-

place. In the process, the FTC says Intel has deprived consumers of choice and stifled innovation in the chip industry. In a statement, the agency said it is asking for an order that would bar Intel from using “threats, bundled prices, or other offers to encourage exclusive deals, hamper competition, or unfairly manip-

ulate the prices of its” chips. Intel has faced similar charges for years and has denied any wrongdoing. The lawsuit comes after a recent $1.25 billion settlement with rival Advanced Micro Devices Inc. over similar claims. Intel, which is based in Santa Clara, Calif., is also appealing a record $1.45

Deceased rodents, starving snakes found in Texas raid ARLINGTON, Texas (AP) — A raid on an exotic animal delivery company in Texas found starving snakes, hundreds of reptiles packed in shipping crates and rodents that had killed and eaten each other, officials said. Dozens of people with the city of Arlington and animal welfare groups took inventory Tuesday of the animals — estimated at 20,000 — and removed them from the U.S. Global Exotics during the raid. The Arlington-based company, which advertises that it delivers exotic animals worldwide, did not respond to a telephone message seeking comment and it’s Web site was down on Wednesday. “Sometimes animals die, but the amount of animals dead far exceeded what you would normally see at any company like this,” said Jay Sabatucci, manager of animal services with the city of Arlington. “Animals were not fed, not fed properly, overcrowded and attacking each other. Some were in an environment not proper for them, such as snakes in a 72-degree room with a lamp over them, which is not enough heat and could cause them to die.” The company’s ware-

house held mostly reptiles and rodents and also spiders, sloths and hedgehogs, but it was unclear how many were dead, said Maura Davies, a spokeswoman with the SPCA of Texas. Veterinarians treated the most severely malnourished animals, she said. Hundreds of rodents were crammed in small containers covered with wire, and many had killed and eaten each other, Davies said. Other animals were kept in feeding troughs, and there were numerous stacked shipping containers still holding turtles and other rep-

tiles that had been sent to the company, Davies said. About 200 iguanas were in one small room, she said. A hearing will be held within 10 days to determine if the animals will be returned to the company or stay in the care of the animal welfare groups, Sabatucci said. The city is considering filing criminal charges against the owner, he said. The city was tipped off recently by federal officials who had executed a warrant for another violation and reported concerns about the animals’ conditions, Sabatucci said.

billion antitrust fine leveled by European regulators. In its complaint Wednesday, the FTC said Intel has used both threats and rewards to keep some of the biggest computer makers from buying other companies’ chips or marketing computers that carried them. The complaint names Dell Inc., Hewlett-

Packard Co., and IBM Corp. as Intel’s targets. The FTC also says Intel has secretly redesigned critical computer software to hinder the performance of other companies’ microprocessors, or CPUs. In addition, the agency said Intel is looking to extend its dominance into chips that are used to processes graphics, com-

monly known as GPUs. “Intel has engaged in a deliberate campaign to hamstring competitive threats to its monopoly,” said Richard A. Feinstein, director of the FTC’s Bureau of Competition. “It’s been running roughshod over the principles of fair play and the laws protecting competition on the merits.”

‘Glee’ cast gleeful over nominations LOS ANGELES (AP) — The mood on the set was appropriately gleeful. The musical-dramedy “Glee” got some serious Golden Globe love, with more nominations than any show. Among the Fox series’ four nominations: best television series — comedy or musical. On the Paramount Studios lot, where “Glee” is filmed, the show’s cast could be found Tuesday hugging and laughing after hearing the news. “Amazing,” said Corey Monteith, who plays football hunk Finn Hudson. “It is kind of like it is like Christmas morning.”

“The four best presents ever,” added actor Kevin McHale. Besides the nod to the series, “Glee” received nominations for Matthew Morrison and Lea Michele, two Broadway veterans who are TV newcomers. Veteran stage and screen actress Jane Lynch also earned a bid for best supporting actress in a series, miniseries or movie. “I slept through (the nominations announcement),” Lynch said. “But, I got up to six messages and went, ’Ah! I wonder if there is some good news for us?’ And there was.”

Boyle video most popular on YouTube SAN FRANCISCO (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s biggest hits on the Internetâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top video channel were anchored by an improbable singing sensation, a groggy boy nursing a sore mouth, a bride and groom dancing down the wedding aisle, supernatural heartthrobs and roller-skating babies. The eclectic cast of characters starring in YouTubeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most-watched videos of 2009 served as a reminder of the quirky appeal of a Web site that accepts about 20 hours of new video every minute. The list released Wednesday marks the first time that YouTube has ranked its most-watched videos in any year since its 2005 inception. YouTubeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 2009 star was Susan Boyle, the frumpy Scottish woman who mesmerized the world with a heartwarming rendition of â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Dreamed A Dreamâ&#x20AC;? on a British talent show in April. Boyle, now 48, ended up taking second place in that competition, but no one came close to outshining her on YouTube. Her

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Britainâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Got Talentâ&#x20AC;? videos attracted more than 120 million views worldwide. That was more than the next three most-watched videos combined, according to YouTube. The second spot, with more than 37 million views, was held by â&#x20AC;&#x153;David After Dentist,â&#x20AC;? which featured a 7-year-old boy recovering from some dental work that left him feeling disoriented and wondering if he would ever feel normal again. Third place went to â&#x20AC;&#x153;JK Wedding Entrance Dance,â&#x20AC;? which captured an elaborate routine orchestrated by Jill Peterson and Kevin Heinz â&#x20AC;&#x201D; flanked by their bridesmaids and groomsmen â&#x20AC;&#x201D; just before their July marriage. It attracted more than 33 million views and turned into a prime example of YouTubeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s moneymaking potential after Sony claimed its rights to a Chris Brown song, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forever,â&#x20AC;? that provided the danceâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s soundtrack. A link placed by the video helped drive more sales of the song. Sony also shared

Susan Boyle sings â&#x20AC;&#x153;I Dreamed A Dreamâ&#x20AC;? with the London West End cast of â&#x20AC;&#x153;Les Miserables.â&#x20AC;? The video of her singing that song was the most viewed of the year on YouTube. in revenue from ads shown by the video. YouTube itself hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t said whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s profitable yet. The site, acquired by Google for $1.76 billion in 2006, now shows ads alongside about 1 billion videos per week. Commercials rounded out YouTubeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s top five videos

for the year. A movie trailer for â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Twilight Saga: New Moonâ&#x20AC;? attracted 31 million views, helped by co-stars, Robert Pattinson and Taylor Lautner, who have had teen girls swooning over them. Pattinson plays a vampire and Lautner takes a turn as a werewolf involved in a love triangle.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; The estimated time when whites will no longer make up the majority of Americans has been pushed back eight years â&#x20AC;&#x201D; to 2050 â&#x20AC;&#x201D; because the recession and stricter immigration policies have slowed the flow of foreigners into the U.S. Census Bureau projections released Wednesday update last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prediction that white children would become a minority in 2023 and the overall white population would follow in 2042. The earlier estimate did not take into account a drop in the number of people moving into the U.S. because of the economic crisis and the immigration policies imposed after the Sept. 11, 2001, terror attacks. The United States has 308 million people today; two-thirds are non-Hispanic whites. The total population should climb to 399 million by 2050, under the new projections, with whites making up 49.9 percent of the population. Blacks

will make up 12.2 percent, virtually unchanged from today. Hispanics, currently 15 percent of the population, will rise to 28 percent in 2050. Asians are expected to increase from 4.4 percent of the population to 6 percent. The projections are based on rates for births and deaths and a scenario in which immigration continues its more recent, slower pace of adding nearly 1 million new foreigners each year. The point when minority children become the majority is expected to have a similar delay of roughly eight years, moving from 2023 to 2031. The population 85 and older is projected to more than triple by 2050, to 18.6 million. The actual shift in demographics will be influenced by a host of factors that canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be accurately forecast â&#x20AC;&#x201D; the pace of the economic recovery, cultural changes, natural or manmade disasters, as well as an overhaul of immigration law.

Dems keep pushing health care despite setbacks â&#x20AC;&#x153;But why spurn a victory in hand?â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was frustration and angst,â&#x20AC;? Sen. Jay Rockefeller, D-W.Va., a leading liberal, said after the meeting at the White House. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody has things they want, and they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t all get what they want and that includes me, big-time.â&#x20AC;?

Rockefeller said. Sen. Mary Landrieu, D-La., a moderate who had been on the fence, said Tuesday night itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to pass the bill. But Majority Leader Harry Reid, D-Nev., was still scrambling to secure

the 60 votes he needs to overcome a Republican filibuster. One holdout â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Connecticut independent Sen. Joe Lieberman â&#x20AC;&#x201D; was coming around fast. Another â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Nebraska moderate Sen.

WASHINGTON (AP) â&#x20AC;&#x201D; History may be calling but timeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s running out to act by Christmas, so Senate Democrats are trying to come to terms with the idea they wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t get everything they want from a health care overhaul. Should they listen to former Democratic Party chairman Howard Dean, slamming the Senate bill as an insurance industry bailout? Or should they pay attention to President Barack Obama, saying the legislation achieves most of what he wants? With each day that senators churn on, the publicâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s doubts about the legislation only seem to grow, polls indicate. Obama cajoled restive Democrats on Tuesday, urging them not to lose perspective amid intense intraparty battles over governmentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s role and reach in health care. The public plan liberals hoped for appeared dead in the Senate, as did a Medicare buy-in scheme offered as a fallback. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The president and vice president pointed out that you take your victories when you can and nothing prevents you from fighting on for the things you believe should have been achieved,â&#x20AC;? said Sen. Sheldon Whitehouse, D-R.I.
