Rear rotor won't come off

I've got a passenger side rear e-break that is sticking. I'm trying to get the rear rotor off. Took the caliper bracket off and can't get it free for anything. Made sure the e-break is off and have used heat. I've taken to banging it with a steel hammer on the drum part - not the rotor. Any suggestions?!!?

I kind of sounds like the e-brake has already wore a groove into the inside of the rotor and won't let it slide off. Can you pry on the e brake making it smaller and see if it pops over the groove/lip?

Lots of heat and a couple of whacks with a 3lb hammer and it finally popped off. Now I can't figure out how to get the parking break pads off. My Chilton's manual says to take off the two springs, but I guess I need a spring hook or something to do that? Stumped again.
