Don Knotts too sick to attend his own festival

(Posted August 3, 2005 by Leah Yoakum)

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Don Knotts' failing health has forced his hometown to indefinitely postpone a parade and film festival in his honor that had been scheduled for Aug. 12-14.

A doctor for the 81-year-old Emmy-winning actor advised him not to travel from Beverly Hills, Calif., said Stacey Brodak, executive director of the Greater Morgantown Convention and Visitors Bureau.

"He had hoped to be here for the celebration, but escalating health issues have made it unwise for him to make the cross-country trip at this time," she said Tuesday.

This fall, he'll be the voice of Turkey Mayor in the animated film "Chicken Little."
