Mount Everest Avalanche  
 Kills Sherpa Guides

Mount Everest is a dangerous place. The first recorded deaths on the mountain were the seven porters who perished in an avalanche in the 1922 British Mount Everest Expedition. Another one has killed at least 12 more Sherpa guides.

Rescuer have recovered 12 bodies from under the snow and ice. Two more Sherpas were injured and have been transpored by helicopter to hospitals. Three more men are missing.

Hundreds of climbers, guides and support crews are in in base camps, to preparing to climb the world`s highest mountain. Most will set out early next month when weather conditions are most favorable. Other camps at higher altitudes are being set up while guides, like those who died, are scouting routes and setting up climbing ropes. The spring climbing season ends in May.

An estimated 200 have died trying to climb Everest. Friday`s deaths are the worst disaster to ever strike the mountain. Most deaths have been attributed to avalanche, injury from falls or ice collapses, exposure or health problems related to conditions on the mountain. Not all bodies have been located, so the number of fatalities remains an estimate.

The first ascent of Mount Everest, over 60 years ago, sparked a tourism boom that draws more than 20,000 visitors each year to the world’s tallest peaks. Strong, congenial, and adept at business, Sherpas play a big role in the tourist economy. They serve not only as high-altitude guides, like those who died, but also as guides for the larger number of visitors who hike at altitudes under 18,000 feet. Sherpas own most of the 300-plus lodges and hotels and many of the companies that organize the visits.

Nepal is home to eight of the 14 tallest mountains in the world. On the other hand, it is one of the world`s poorest countries, so tourism is vital, contributing about 4% of the country`s gross national product. Tourists spend about a half a billion dollars a year.

In the Mind of - Tony Potts
I just love college football spring games. If you know me then you know I took the first opportunity to take my newborn daughter, Georgia, to her first experience `between the hedges` last Saturday. Talk about a surreal moment for this old man. I had always wondered what it would be like to take my baby to Sanford to bask in the sunshine, and it didn`t disappoint. Watching her face as she saw the colors and heard the excitement of the band was absolutely worth a million dollars. It also made this old man smile when almost every single one of the cheerleaders stopped what they were doing to come over and check out my precious little girl.

So what did we learn about the Dawgs during their last `practice` before things start to get real. Hutson Mason looks ready. With the SEC`s top teams pretty much all replacing their starting QB`s this could be Georgia`s chance. The senior QB waited his turn and with the two games he started last year should be more than ready for Clemson on August 30. Defensive Coordinator Jeremy Pruitt didn`t show off much of his playbook, but the d-backs looked prepared. It was nice to see a coach doing more than calling the plays. No knock, well, ok, a big knock on Todd Grantham, while he was a good coach, he stunk as a teacher. Pruitt is out there teaching these kids about the `why`s` not just calling in a play. It shows.

What have we learned after the first month of baseball season? The Braves, like always, start off like a lion. If only the World Series was decided in April. The Brewers are looking really good, but it`s hard to see them keeping up the pace. The Nationals Stephen Strausburg can throw the ball, REALLY throw the ball, but he can`t seem to find a place to put it. If he ever learns a pitch beside the fastball he could be an all-time great. If he doesn`t then he will have to purchase a ticket when he goes to Cooperstown.

Oakland, well, they just keep winning and the Angels keep spending… and losing. The AL Central should be an adventure this year unless Detroit can find a power hitter that is not 40 years-old. Boston is off to a slow start, but with a revamped lineup I`m not worried just yet.

Did you know that the Atlanta Hawks have the longest current playoff streak in the Eastern Division? That`s right this makes the 7th straight season Atlanta has reached the playoffs. The only team in all of basketball with more is the San Antonio Spurs out of the West with 17 straight. I do think that this year was the best job by Atlanta in that run. The team completely dropped its payroll for a chance to go out after this season to sign a few big names. They will have the Pacers, who they beat by 20 last week, in the first round. Wouldn`t it be something if they can pull off an 8 over 1 seed upset!?! I do not put it past this team.

Until next week! Follow me on Twitter @TheTonyPotts
