DOLLY's SPLASH COUNTRY

Dolly Parton left it up to her fans when it came to naming her brand-new, $20-million water park in East Tennessee. The singer picked "Dolly's Splash Country" after sifting through 16,000 suggestions from fans around the country.

John Torres of Ronkonkoma, N.Y., was one of several people who suggested that name, so Dolly selected his entry at random. Torres will receive an autographed canoe, a "splash party" for 10 guests and a special photo session with Dolly at the park's grand opening.
