MEMPHIS, Tenn. -

The Great Smoky Mountains National Park re-opened Wednesday. The bad news, it will close again on Sunday. That's the agreement Governor Bill Haslam says he made with the National Park Service. Earlier this week, Sevier County, where the park's headquarters is located, sent the NPS $300,000 to reopen for the next five days, but then the money runs out. This is the park's business time of year.
