Crematorium at City Council Opponents of a crematorium slated to open in Fountain City are gearing up to challenge Gentry-Griffey Funeral Chapel’s building permit at City Council on Tuesday. Last month, the Board of Zoning Appeals turned down an appeal of Gentry-Griffey’s permit to build an on-site crematorium. In doing so, the zoning board affi rmed the city building official’s ruling that the crematorium is an accessory use to the funeral home.

It’s real, it’s here Bids opened for Emory Road By Sandra Clark The Powell leg of Emory Road improvements has been funded and bids opened with the apparent low bidder Potter South East LLC of Huntsville, Tenn. “After 40 years of talk, it’s finally here,” said state Rep. Bill Dunn. Potter’s bid is $1 5 ,66 0,65 3 .11, Bill Dunn Dunn said. “We expect to break ground in mid- to late-March and the completion date is Oct. 31, 2013.” The project will complete the five-laning of Emory Road from Norris Freeway in Halls to Clinton Highway, coming out at Walgreens. It will bridge over the railroad tracks and extend south of Beaver Creek with five lanes and sidewalks, Dunn said.

“I’m happy and I hope the folks in BRINK are happy, too. I know Rep. Harry Brooks and Sen. Randy McNally (who also represent Powell) are pleased with this.” BRINK (Better Roads in North Knox), is a citizens group founded in 1994 to promote road improvements in north, northwest and northeast Knox County. Members including Clark Hamilton, Carl Tindell and David Lambert have met with TDOT commissioners over the years to promote an agenda which included widening Emory Road from Halls to Powell and Western Avenue/Oak Ridge Highway from Knoxville to Karns. When Gov. Bill Haslam came into office, he dispatched TDOT Commissioner John Schroer on a road trip to visit projects underway. Dunn virtually hijacked Schroer in Knox County, taking him to the unfinished stretch of Emory Road. “When he drove on Emory and

By Sandra Clark Dr. Jim McIntyre is recommending a major building project at Shannondale Elementary School and improvements for Adrian Burnett. The north area schools were targeted in the superintendent’s capital planning priorities, but there is no timeline for completion. The school board must adopt the recommendations which were discussed at last week’s workshop. Three board members questioned the absence of middle school improvements on the list. At Shannondale, McIntyre would build as many as 14 class-

rooms, eliminating the need for portables at the school. “Shannondale has both a relatively low square foot per student ratio and relatively high proportion of its existing square footage in portable classrooms,” he said. Tracie Sanger spoke for Shannondale at the workshop. “We’re requesting renovation or an addition in the near future,” she said. Shannondale was built in 1955 for 250 students. The school now has 435 students with more than one-third housed in portable classrooms. “We have 17 people per toilet. All three 5th grades, all three 4th

grades, art, music, special education, speech and guidance are in portables – 145 kids of 435 or 33.6 percent,” she said. “And the quality of those portables has been questioned this year.” An addition at Adrian Burnett Elementary School could accommodate growth in what McIntyre calls the “north central corridor” where he expects “modest enrollment growth” and buildings are at capacity. Since Adrian Burnett, located on Brown Gap Road in Halls, was built for a much smaller enrollment, its core amenities – cafeteria, library,

administrative space and restrooms – are inadequate and would be addressed, he said. “Additional capital work at Brickey-McCloud, Powell Elementary or Copper Ridge may be needed to complement the project at Adrian Burnett.” McIntyre’s other three priorities are: support for magnet schools, deferred maintenance at Farragut and Powell high schools and construction, probably at Pond Gap Elementary, to accommodate anticipated growth in the area served by Norwood, Inskip, West Haven and Pond Gap elementary schools. 2707 Mineral Springs Ave. Knoxville, TN 37917 Ph.

‘Murder in Harrill Hills’ at Open Door Book Review

Retired crime investigator Bob Allen will review his book “Murder in Harrill Hills” 10:30 a.m. Thursday, Feb. 23, at the Fountain City Branch Library for the Open Door Book Review. Dr. Jim Tumblin reports that in 1951, Mary Tabler Hankins, a young Knoxville housewife, was mysteriously slain while alone in her new Harrill Hills home, the victim of a senseless murder with no apparent motive. The crime was never solved.

Crematorium fight moves to City Council decision was not in conformity with provisions of the zoning code that don’t speak specifically to crematoriums, but do speak of incinerators and limit them to industrial zones requiring use-on-review.” At last month’s BZA meeting, she cited sections of the city code that limit related uses – like distillation of bones and incineration of organic matter – to I-4 industrial zones. Gen-

try-Griffey, located on the hill above Fountain City Lake, is zoned O-1. This, Scott said, supports Rose Mortuary CEO Kent Marcum’s written statement that city officials told him not to bother asking when Rose wanted to add a crematory to a facility it was leasing in Bearden. Marcum said he was told that such uses are permissible only in I-4 industrial zones.

City attorney Angela Rauber said she has found no evidence that Marcum ever applied for a permit to build a crematory. Marcum, however, said he decided not to apply for a permit when he was told it had to be in an industrial zone. Instead, he and other local funeral directors founded East Tennessee Cremation Services in Blount County. Gentry-Griffey lawyer Arthur Seymour Jr. cited

legal precedent to support his case at BZA. “The disposition of dead human bodies includes the right of a funeral establishment to operate a crematory. That’s the last word from the appellate courts,” he said. Formerly family-owned, Gentry-Griffey is now part of a corporation called Evergreen, whose principals are Jim Clayton, Richard Ray and Tim Williams.

Farm grants available By Roy Arthur Almost 100 landowners along Beaver Creek from Gibbs to Solway braved the cold morning of Feb. 11 to gather at the Jubilee Banquet Hall on Callahan Road for breakfast and the opportunity to hear Matt Ledford, Knox County soil conservationist, speak about farm enhancements that also benefit wildlife. This Farmers’ Breakfast event is part of a series sponsored by the Beaver Creek Task Force and organized by the Knox County Soil Conservation District. Ledford discussed the benefit of incorporating native warm season grasses on a portion of a farm for improved pasture and hay during the summer months when fescue becomes dormant. These grasses not only save a farmer money, but benefit deer and rabbits by providing cover from predatory animals. The grasses also provide habitat for

quail, a bird species that has almost disappeared from the East Tennessee landscape. Matt also discussed managing trees bordering fields to improve row crop and pasture production. Tree borders can be managed to provide habitat corridors for game species and birds. Charles Thompkins, who farms 75 acres in the Halls community, was presented with a Beaver Creek Conservation Farm sign. Charles has taken advantage of many of the cost sharing programs provided by the Knox County Soil Conserva-

tion District to install fencing, improve pasture and provide watering systems for his cattle. For the remainder of 2012, landowners in the Beaver Creek Watershed can take advantage of a Tennessee Department of Agriculture 319 grant that will pay 75 percent of the cost of improvements on their property. Contact Matt Ledford or Amy Mann with the Knox County Soil Conservation District Office at 523-3338, Ext. 3 for details.

After years of steep rate hikes, the Hallsdale Powell Utility District management has proposed two different rate structures for the fiscal year which starts April 1. The board of commissioners will vote on a budget and the rate to fund it on March 12. A draft version of the budget is on the Shopper’s website at www.ShopperNewsNow.com/. HPUD could retain the minimum bill structure which has usage charges after 1,500 gallons per month. For this model, management recommends water rates would be increased by 3.5 percent and wastewater rates by 3.75 percent. Option two is a flat base charge per customer and a per gallon charge from zero. This model would be cheaper for customers who use 1,000 gallons or less. Commissioner Bob Crye said that the base rate method helps those who use less water which may include the elderly and low income customers. The budget anticipates revenues of $29.2 million and operating expenses of $22.4 million including $7.7 million of depreciation. Interest on debt will be $4.6 million. Also at last Monday’s meeting, CEO Darren Cardwell reported that the district held its AA rating with Standard & Poor’s in a report released Jan. 31. In the past 12 years, HPUD has invested $155 million to upgrade and ex-

pand the water and wastewater systems. Water loss has been reduced from 40 percent to 26 percent, according to the S&P report. “Liquidity is very strong” with cash on hand during 2011 to cover 441 days of operations. Some of that cash will be used to fund $66 million in anticipated expenses to complete the upgrades. HPUD might have to issue an additional $18 million to $20 million in bonds to complete the rehab projects, the report states. ■ HPUD set nine water meters in January and inspected 19 sewer connections. The district treated 219.8 million gallons of water and 337.8 million gallons of wastewater. ■ The board adopted a proposed settlement of a dispute with Siemens over equipment problems at the Melton Hill water plant. Engineer Nick Jackson said the settlement (adding two treatment cells to the existing four) will “give us 50 percent more capacity for one-tenth of the cost we paid in 2004” and the additional membranes will extend the life of the plant. ■ Consulting engineer Robert Campbell said the Maynardville Pike water line relocation and expansion project is 85 percent complete. This will link Halls to the new water plant on Norris Lake. ■ James Smith, chief financial officer, is proposing an alternate rate model with a flat fee and a bill

He always speaks up for the people and not just for his own interests. We need his leadership.” – Charlie Hipsher “Conley Underwood thinks like I do – he wants to improve education in the 8th District. When you ask for his help, he’s not asking, ‘what’s in it for me?’. He’ll do what he can to help you.” – C.H. McMillan “Conley Underwood is a man who stands for integrity and honesty...a family man with the same concerns of other parents. He wants what is best for all OUR children. I urge you to vote for him.” – Mrs. Monty (Becky) Howell “Conley Underwood has worked for the community all his life. I was impressed that he kept up the fight for a new elementary school even though his children are already in middle school. He wants what is best for all the kids in the 8th District.” – Jim Williams “I’ve got a favorite in this race...Conley Underwood. I like his coach’s slogan: ‘Team First,’ and his operating strategy of being ‘positive, polite and respectful.’ Most of all, I like his persistence and optimism. If elected, he will do a good job.” – Sandra Clark, Halls Shopper-News Facebook: Conley Underwood for Knox County Board of Education-8th District conleyunderwood@comcast.net 388-4482 Paid for by the committee to Elect Conley Underwood; Brad Cannon, Treasurer.

based on actual usage. ■ The annual state maintenance fee will be added to customers’ next bill. It is a one-time $1.29 for water customers and 60 cents for sewer customers for a total $1.89, Smith said. That’s a reduction from last year’s fees of $1.43 and 61 cents. ■ HPUD is operating at 2003 levels of water usage,” Smith said. He attributed that to “people becoming more environmentally conscious” and the use of more efficient household appliances. Jim Hill said it’s a reflection of recent rainy seasons. People use more water during a drought. And it could be HPUD’s rates have caused people to use less water. ■ Smith anticipates the district will sell 40 million gallons less water for fiscal year 2012 as compared to fiscal year 2011.

How Bob Booker made Bill Jenkins Speaker Last Tuesday, Feb. 14, was a trip down memory lane for me as Bill Vaughan, retired journalist and press aide to Gov. Winfield Dunn, and I drove up to Rogersville to have lunch with former U.S. Rep. Bill Jenkins at the historic Hale Springs Inn. Jenkins, 75, is in good health and still the gentleman farmer.

Victor Ashe

Along with Knoxville attorney Dick Krieg (another former state representative) and Tom Jensen, I had voted in January 1969 to elect Jenkins the first Republican Speaker of the Tennessee House of Representatives in decades. It would take 40 years before another Republican would be Speaker. But in 1969, the House was split 49-49 between Democrats and Republicans with one independent, J. P. Kimbrell from Lawrence County, for a total of 99 members. It was uncertain whether Jenkins, the GOP nominee, or Pat Lynch, the Democratic nominee, would be chosen Speaker. When the House convened that day it was full of excitement and uncertainty, as the lone independent, Mr. Kimbrell, had not declared his intentions. It was assumed his vote would determine the outcome, so when the roll was called everyone waited for the clerk to reach the names beginning with “K” to find out what Kimbrell would do. However, the result became clear much earlier in the roll call when those names beginning with “B” were called. Bob Booker, an African-American Democrat from Knoxville, announced his vote for Jenkins to the shock of the 48 other Democrats and the happy surprise of Republicans. Then, Jenkins had his 50 votes and the Kimbrell vote, which made it 51, was not decisive. I asked Jenkins last week how he was able to secure Booker’s support some 44 years ago. He said he had met with Booker a few days before the vote and told him he would be fair in appointments and presiding. Booker, he said, told him he would support him and Booker delivered. Jenkins said he and Booker still stay in touch to this day. Jenkins was also a fellow East Tennessean. Jenkins has had one of the most diverse public service careers of any Tennessean, having served as a state representative for eight years, Commissioner of Conservation for Gov. Dunn (in fact the only commissioner in the Dunn Cabinet still living),

Director of TVA when directors still ran the agency, Circuit Court judge, and U.S. Representative. Jenkins has been in the legislative, judicial and executive branches of state government and the executive and legislative branches of the federal government. He also served a term on the Board of Trustees for Carson-Newman College. He says being Speaker of the Tennessee House was the most interesting “as it was a period of transition” for Tennessee politics to a two-party system. Buford Ellington was governor and the notion of a Republicancontrolled House was considered fantasy. However, in 1968, Richard Nixon carried Tennessee and Hubert Humphrey ran poorly. Tennessee had elected Howard Baker to the U.S. Senate in 1966, Bill Brock to the U.S. House from Chattanooga in 1962, and in 1970, Winfield Dunn was elected governor and Brock to the U.S. Senate. Two-party politics for Tennessee had arrived. Today it seems almost reversed in that the GOP is now the dominant party, which the Democrats were in the early 1960s and also in the 1980s. Both Houses of the Legislature are Republican as is the Governor and seven of nine congressional seats. Jenkins attributes the growth of the Republican Party in the Legislature to the Supreme Court decision of Baker v. Carr which required equal populations in districts for legislatures across the United States and assured a growth in Republican seats. Jenkins never overstayed his time in any position he has held. His integrity is well-established and his story telling is legendary. ■ Ray Building: It seems another matter the Knoxville Tourism and Sports Corporation never voted on was naming their building on Gay Street for Gloria Ray. It was done by an agreement between former county Mayor Mike Ragsdale and Ray with the concurrence of former KTSC board chair David Duncan according to Kim Bumpas, interim KTSC president. There is no record of the board voting to do this. Bumpas is making a concerted effort to reach out to groups which Ray had ignored in the arts and cultural community. Don’t be surprised if the sign quietly disappears one day. ■ Attorney Ward Phillips is being paid $275 an hour which may be the best money KTSC has spent as he unearths past misdeeds and outlines a legal path to restoring trust. Had he been around earlier he might have been able to keep the board focused on the business of being real board members.

WDVX is nation’s top bluegrass station – again By Betty Bean Two minutes before noon on a cold, gray Monday, the crowd at the Blue Plate Special was a little sparse and kind of quiet. Then Red Hickey picked up the microphone and asked them to make some extra noise and promised that stragglers would arrive to fill up the room by the time the opening act, Ryan Kralik, a singer/songwriter who’d come all the way from Kent, Ohio, plugged in his ukulele.

Betty Bean WDVX general manager Linda Billman (center) and interns David Cohen and Samantha Amick get ready for another “Blue Plate Special.” Photo by Betty Bean She was right. Five minutes later, the room was nearly full. And by the time the four singing sisters from Atlanta who make up the string band von Grey took the stage, it was standing room only. Their high lonesome harmonies couldn’t help but remind old-timers of the “Midday Merry-Go-Round” that was the hottest lunch hour ticket on Gay Street 60 years ago. The “Blue Plate Special” is a daily production of the radio station that The Oxford American magazine named the Best In America. Past performers there include locals, up-andcoming new national faces and occasionally, bona fide celebrities like Bela Fleck, Marty Stuart and David Grisman. The show broadcasts from a studio at the Knoxville Visitors Center, on the corner of Gay Street and Summit Hill. This month, WDVX was named Bluegrass Station of the Year by the Society for the Preservation of Bluegrass Music of America. For the eighth time. The WDVX studios share the ground floor of the Gloria Ray building with Nancy Kendrick’s Coop Café (known for its many tasty variations on chicken salad) and Uniquely Knoxville, a gift shop featuring hand-made local products from paintings and pottery to jewelry, books and recorded music. On Saturday mornings at 10, there’s a chil-

dren’s show called “Kids’ Stuff,” hosted by Sean McCollough. Upstairs are the plush offices of the embattled Knoxville Tourism and Sports Corporation, which is in the midst of a forced reorganization over questions about its financial structure. WDVX, which operates on an annual budget of just more than $600,000, relies on numerous volunteers, some part-timers and five full-time employees who are crammed into a space that is windowless and small, lit with fluorescent bulbs and provided by KTSC in exchange for promotional exposure on the air. Expansion plans have been put on hold by the turmoil on the top floor. Whatever the problems, Linda Billman, who served on the board of directors for six years before she was hired as general manager two years ago, says WDVX is happy to be downtown. “We are lucky to be here. It keeps us visible and we can do the ‘Blue Plate.’ We think we make a great contribution to the community – arts every day for free in downtown Knoxville. We have become a tourist destination,” she said. WDVX founder Tony Lawson, now the program director, incorporated the station in 1991 and guided it to its first FCC license in 1997 when it was broadcasting from a transmitter on Cross Mountain, near Briceville. Even-

tually, Lawson bought a used camper for $500 that became the station’s first permanent studio. Around that time, he got a financial boost from Don Burggraf, who put up his house as collateral on a $25,000 loan. “It’s just been a good soulful journey,” Lawson said, who treasures memories of people he has met over the years – like bluegrass prodigy Alex Leach, who started working on air when he was 9 years old. Leach is 22 now, and plays guitar, mandolin and banjo all over the Western Hemisphere. He still does a Tuesday night show with Lawson when he’s in town. And is the resemblance to the “Midday Merry-Go-Round” intentional? “Absolutely,” Lawson said. “It’s where we started, with one foot in the past and one foot in the future. And this is where we’re standing right now.” Billman is working on ways to translate the station’s prestige and popularity into economic stability. “That’s the challenge of nonprofits,” she said. “I’d like to figure out a way to make listeners into supporters. One of our challenges is that we are a radio station and a lot of people think of broadcasting as free. That’s fine and a lot of people can’t afford to contribute, but for people who can, it would be nice to have their support.”

Raggin’ on ObamaCare Dr. Richard Briggs doesn’t like the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act, commonly called ObamaCare. The heart surgeon who also serves on Knox County Commission spoke last week to the West Knox Republican Club. He called the health reform law “the flagship of the

Obama Administration” and said few issues in our lifetime will be as important. Briggs recently ate dinSandra ner with U.S. Rep.

First preview of 2012 football

So good to hear that the worst is over, that Tennessee football is no longer in disarray, that progress, like cherry blossoms, is budding and will soon break out for all to see. This is your first official preview of football 2012. Cody Blanc said Jim Chaney said, “If we don’t win eight or nine ball games – well, seven or eight – that’s when we’ll know something’s not right.” I already know. I’m counting on the head coach, offensive coordinator Chaney, the new running back coach, the new line coach, the reassigned receivers coach and other close associates to fix it. I look forward to an attitude adjustment, led by the new defensive coordinator. I am hopeful that the coach of size, strength and speed will do something to help. When I am in charge of this operation, we will add a gate guard or grassgrower or other guru who knows how to kick and will stand very near a certain kicker, in lunch lines, during practice and at all games. He will whisper tips and tidbits. There will be no more kicks that hit helmets. There was a time, back in the Phillip Fulmer era, when seven or eight victories wouldn’t have been enough. Expectations have

been beaten down, hammered over the head with a two-by-four. Almost anything imaginable would be better than the 1-7 SEC record and some of those gosh-awful scores. The schedule is encouraging. There I go, becoming openly optimistic about Georgia State, Akron and Troy. Overconfidence is a dangerous error. Blanc, multitalented recruit from Knoxville Central, has his own reasons for positive thinking, good group of returnees, good group of new guys. Here’s the hitch: Georgia is still ahead. Are the Vols now even with Florida, South Carolina and Mississippi State? Are they better than anybody? Dare I mention Vanderbilt and Kentucky? No question about Alabama. Good thing the coach there is a friend of the coach here. That may be enough to save the rivalry. The biggest game of Derek Dooley’s coaching life is the opener, North Carolina State in Atlanta. The Wolfpack has yo-yo

tendencies. We don’t know which group will show up. We are almost certain which pack of wolves will be howling if the Volunteers limp home emptyhanded. Spare us that experience. This is the season Tennessee runs out of excuses. The squad has scars earned in combat. There is some depth. The quarterback will be a junior in eligibility if not maturity. If the talent level is not improved, that will be Dooley’s fault. He will have three recruiting classes on the field. If they aren’t good enough, this will be a tragic time to make the discovery. On my depth chart, two seniors and seven juniors are penciled in as offensive starters. Two seniors and six juniors are my defensive guesses. Sophomores on both sides of the ball have star potential. Tyler Bray is the key. I honestly don’t know if he is a pipe dream or a future NFL prize. He has the arm. For some, he is the pied piper. For some, he is a pain. Contracts be damned, the coach and his new helpers are strung out on the fence. I sure hope they come down on the side of success, longevity and bowl bonuses. The other side is so messy.

Briggs. Popular parts include disallowing insurance caps on maximum lifetime coverage and forbidding insurance companies from “throwing people off.” Children can stay on their parents’ policy until age 26 under certain conditions. But the rub comes from the requirement that everyone buy health insurance. And opponents believe the premiums won’t be adequate, pushing increased

costs down to states. In fact, Gov. Bill Haslam says, “The Obama administration’s approach is an unaffordable healthcare mandate that is a significant overstep of the federal government’s authority. Forcing mandates on states and individuals is the wrong approach, and if Obamacare is implemented, healthcare costs will rise significantly, putting a seri- Richard Briggs speaks at the ous strain on state budgets West Knox Republican Club Photo by S.

Ag class lives high on the hog Cindy Taylor When does a Bull kill a hog? According to Earl Bull, not until temperatures drop into the 20s for two or three days in a row. While most of us have been enjoying the spring-like temperatures and sunny weather that have prevailed in Tennessee this winter, Bull has been biding his time. “You can’t kill a hog until the weather gets cold enough,” said Bull. “We’ve waited all winter, because if it’s too warm your

meat will sour.” As soon as those temps got here, John Fugate and his agriculture class from Union County High School made the trek to the Bull farm to learn what it takes to kill and dress a hog. They not only learned, they jumped right in to help. “I wanted them to learn and experience this process,” said Fugate. “It isn’t often we can go out in the field and see this anymore.”

Cheers for the Eagles Jim Byrge It’s been a while since our last visit and a lot has happened over the last few weeks. Much more is on the horizon for our local Scouts. Prior to the holidays, the Troop 506 Gryphon Patrol assisted our neighbors from Regal Entertainment and the Variety Children’s Charity with their annual Christmas party for local nonprofit groups. The assistance at the event was part of an ongoing effort on the part of our Scouts to give back to the community and community-related

organizations through their service. A lot of their merit badges and rank advancements rely on “service hours” and service-related activities to the community, and our young men and women in Troop 506 and Crew 506 have a strong history of working in our community. What we actually tend to see is more volunteers than we sometimes have the need for. Isn’t that a great problem to have? If you were out and about in the area over the last couple of

Union County High School agriculture class members had no problem grabbing a knife to help Earl Bull scrape the hair off the hog. Earl Bull (left) instructs students Nathan Civay, Nicole Bailey and Chris Elliott in the proper way to remove the hair from the hog while other class members watched. Teacher John Fugate (right) also showed the class where different cuts of meat are located on the hog. Photo by C. Taylor

weekends, it is quite likely that you saw Scouts at area stores or in neighborhoods helping gather food for local food banks through the Scouting for Food drive. A big thanks to Wes Hayes for leading a series of weekend hikes for the Cub Scouts and younger Boy Scouts over the last few weeks. Wes and his “merry band of hikers” have been going each weekend for short hikes to help the younger Scouts get into the swing of outdoor activities. The boys are having a great time, but none so much as Wes. Big congratulations to our recent Eagle Scout recipients for their accomplishments. Dylan Ensor, Matt Swindle, Andrew McMahan, Robert Buck and Luke Lee all completed the requirements and a service project in which they are responsible for planning, fund raising and completing. Each passed their respective Eagle Review Boards and have been awarded the BSA’s highest Scout achievement. A lot of hard work by these

Scouts and support from friends and family made these achievements possible. I am always proud of our Scouts when they make Eagle, but one of these young men is extra special to me. Luke Lee was the first of my former Cub Scouts to make Eagle. It is rare for me to be held somewhat speechless or even emotional about such things and even rarer for Luke’s father to be at a loss for words, but I can assure you words were tough to come by at Luke’s Eagle Court of Honor for both of us. I know Luke is the first of many more of my former Cubs to become Eagle Scouts, and I’m sure the words and emotions will come easier, but I hope not. Speaking of Eagle projects, another of my former Cubs is working on an impressive project for his Eagle requirements. J.T. Thomas has a project that will benefit two separate areas of our community. With assistance from the Tennessee Wildlife Resources

Agency, J.T. is building and positioning fish beds along the banks of Fort Loudoun Lake in the downtown and UT area. The material he is going to use for this project is coming from the brush that he and a group of 506 Scouts and Scouters are removing from the Clayton Park just off Norris Freeway. This is just a brief glimpse of the things that these young men have been doing, and I apologize up front to anyone I may have missed or an event that I have not mentioned in this article. I hope to be able to visit with you on a much more frequent basis in the future. Anyone interested in Scouting can contact me at troop506@ tds.net and I will help direct you to the proper person to get you started. Thanks for all the nice comments and even more for the “where have you been?” comments about these visits, and I promise to do a better job of keeping you up to date on our Scouts.

W

hen a first-class letter or package is mailed from anywhere in East Tennessee (376-379 ZIP CODE) to anywhere else in East Tennessee, it has been expected to be delivered the next day, except on Sunday. However, the Postal Service recently announced the easement of service standards for first-class mail and periodicals (newspapers and magazines). If no action is taken by Congress to stop this action by the end of May, local firstclass mail and periodicals will take a minimum of two days to be delivered. Congress caused the financial problems of the Postal Service by forcing it to pay $5.5 Billion annually to prefund 75 years of retiree health benefits in a 10-year period, including benefits for future retirees not even born yet! This unreasonable burden, passed by Congress in 2006 before the Great Recession, has caused billions of dollars in losses annually for the Postal Service (without that burden, the Postal Service would have earned over $600 Million in profits over the past 4 years). Over 120,000 jobs have been cut, thousands of post offices are targeted for closure, and 6-day mail delivery is threatened. The U.S. Senate is soon expecting to debate bill S. 1789, a proposal that would provide some short-term financial relief for the Postal Service, but does nothing to stop the degradation of service standards and the end of over-night local delivery of first-class mail and periodicals (newspapers and magazines). It does not adequately resolve the prefunding burden of the $5.5 Billion payments, which is the overwhelming cause of the financial problems in the first place. Without addressing this burden, any other actions to cut costs will only be destructive and will further reduce mail service for all Americans. Only Congress can prevent the degradation of our mail service and preserve the Postal Service for many years to come. Contact your U. S. Senators, Lamar Alexander and Bob Corker, and ask them to oppose S. 1789 unless it is amended to maintain current service standards and to correct the prefunding burden. Contact them today and let them know you value your mail service! Senator Lamar Alexander 800 Market St., Suite 112 Knoxville, TN 37902 865-545-4253

my mind around was the Incarnation. God, who created this world, and loved it in spite of the mess we made of things, decided to make God’s heart as our hearts. God became human in order to be one of us: to love, to laugh, to be weary, or tired, or angry, to hurt, to grieve, to hope, to dream. To share our experiences. To understand. Because when God – in Christ – experienced what it was like to be human, God could forgive us our sinfulness. Not condoning it, yet understanding. And understanding makes forgiveness possible. There is, however, another side to that transaction. In Jesus, a forgiving God made his own heart as ours, breakable and subject to temptation. Jesus paid the price of all of our broken hearts, so that our hearts ultimately may be made like his: pure, sinless and full of God’s own love. This week Christians all over the world will observe Ash Wednesday, a day to consider and repent of our sinfulness, to seek forgiveness and to give thanks for God’s heart of mercy. May God make our hearts as His heart. portation: 688-1073.

Make my heart as yours

It was given to me so long ago I can’t remember who gave it to me, or why. It is a wooden plaque with a French proverb – quoted above – lettered beautifully on parchment and edged on three sides with delicate flowers. My French is slim to nonexistent but “comprendre” and “pardoner” are cognates that are pretty recognizable: comprehend and pardon. It translates roughly: “All you can understand, you can forgive.” Tolstoy quoted Mme. de Stael’s proverb in his prologue to “War and Peace” and is sometimes mistakenly given credit for its authorship. My daughter Eden brought all this to mind recently when she told me about something Ray Deaderick of South of Halls.

Dental Answers Dr. Steven C. Crippen Question: “I've recently noticed that my gums bleed when I brush my teeth. Could this be a sign of serious health problems?” Answer: “Sometimes bleeding gums can indeed be a sign of health problems in the mouth or other parts of the body. Most often such bleeding is indicative of some degree of gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis), which can usually be treated successfully in the dental office. Periodontitis, the more severe type of gum disease, can lead to loss of some

or all of the teeth if dental care is not started soon enough. Gum disease also has been found recently to be associated with a greater incidence of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. I would strongly recommend a dental visit soon for an examination of your teeth and gums.” Questions for “Dental Answers” are welcomed and should be sent to our address at 7409 Temple Acres Drive, Knoxville, TN, 37938.

NEWS FROM WEAVER HEARING AID CENTER

Expanded product line benefits patients By Sandra Clark Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a reason people from a four-state area travel to Knoxville for hearing aid advice and instruments. Gary and Belinda Weaver are all about customer service. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are a provider to the hearing impaired 24/7,â&#x20AC;? said Gary. So Weaving Hearing Aid Center has forged relationships with wholesalers to bring an array of products to its office in Franklin Square. A major manufacturer is Oticon, which offers ConnectLine. These devices link wirelessly to hearing aids,

connecting the patients to their cell or landline phone, to music, the computer or the television. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With ConnectLine, your hearing instruments become a personal wireless headset,â&#x20AC;? said Gary. And he wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t just send the device home with a patient who has no clue how to use it. He will program it and demonstrate it until each patient is comfortable. Because the sound is transmitted directly to your ear, the speakerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s voice is not amplified to create disturbance for others in the

room. With a range up to 30 feet, the patient can listen to programs at his preferred volume while the family listens at theirs. Safety is a factor as well. Gary Weaver asks what happens when a patient goes home. What happens when the hearing aid comes out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Can she hear the smoke detector at night? Can she hear the phone ring? The dog bark? The door bell? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Getting a hearing aid is not the end of the story,â&#x20AC;? he says. Auxiliary devices in-

Freedom Alert is an exclusive new product with a programmable 2-way voice emergency pendant and no monthly fees. Gary can program numbers for four emergency contacts: family, friend, neighbor, nurse or E-911. Worn around the neck,

the pendantâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s range includes both house and yard. Families buy the system with no further financial obligation. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you move, take it with you. Take it on vacation,â&#x20AC;? said Gary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s yours.â&#x20AC;? Intiga is a super small Oticon product designed to help new wearers acclimate to a hearing aid. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The process of learning to use the aid is quicker and more comfortable,â&#x20AC;? said Gary. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s so tiny when it goes

behind the ear youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d have to have a flashlight to find it.â&#x20AC;? Intiga aids are water repellent and offer remote control over sound and programming. With customers already from East Tennessee, Georgia, North Carolina and Kentucky, Gary said Weaver Hearing Aid Center is a one-stop shop for hearing devices. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We carry all the brands. We offer a 30-day trial period with 100 percent guarantee. And weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll do what it takes, even make a home visit, to ensure that your equipment works for you.â&#x20AC;?

Life and Health Insurance Plans My name is Gary Gilleran. I have lived in the Knoxville area for over 36 years. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve been married to my wife Kim since 1973 and have 5 children and 5 grandchildren. Since 1992 I have met the insurance needs of thousands of clients with life and health insurance products in the East Tennessee area.

Fort Sanders Regional: Knoxvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Primary Stroke Center Stroke is the third leading cause of death in the United States and the top cause of disability in adults. Strokes affect more than 600,000 Americans every year. A stroke is basically a â&#x20AC;&#x153;brain attack.â&#x20AC;? It happens when the blood flow to an area of the brain is interrupted by a blocked or broken blood vessel. When a stroke occurs, it kills brain cells in the immediate area and endangers cells in surrounding brain tissue. Without immediate medical treatment, a larger area of your brain can die. As a result, you may suffer permanent brain damage, paralysis, speech impairment or even death. Symptoms of stroke

may include: weakness of the face or arm on one side of the body, loss of vision and a sudden severe headache. As a Primary Stroke Center, Fort Sanders Regional is equipped to handle stroke from the initial diagnosis, to the treat-

ment and through the rehabilitation process. The nationally-recognized rehabilitation programs at Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center (located inside Fort Sanders) help stroke patients restore abilities and regain lost capacity. When a patient suspected of having a stroke comes to Fort Sanders Regional, he or she receives a CT scan within 45 minutes. If they arrive within three hours of the onset of the stroke, the patient will receive powerful clot-busting drugs (called thrombolytics) that can open blocked arteries and reduce the effects of stroke. For stroke patients who ar-

rive in the emergency room after eter to remove a clot to restore three hours, thrombolytics can normal blood flow to large arterbe administered directly into the ies in the brain. Fort Sanders Regional is one of the few facilities in Tennessee to hold a Primary Stroke Center certification from the Joint Commission, as well as three separate stroke accreditations for our Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center from the Center for the Accreditation of Rehabilitation Facilities (CARF).

The group enjoyed a delicious supper, flowers, fun seniors. This group of seand fellowship and it wasn’t niors meets for lunch at hard to feel the love for the Wesley House on Fridays in the fall and spring. “Many of these ladies are widowed or have no one close who can give them special attention on Valentine’s Day so we decided to create something special just for them,” said Sharon Earl, senior program coordinator at Wesley House. Years ago Earl contacted her friend Jackie Kelley, who is a member at Fountain City United Methodist Church, about getting some help in this effort. The ladies of the No. 10

Circle have been putting on this event for six years, and the special night out includes the group’s favorite activity, bingo. The senior ladies love to play for household items and fun things that will make their lives a little easier. “This is a fun group of se-

niors that range in age from 64 to 94. Being around them brightens my day as much as these activities brighten the lives of the seniors,” said Earl. Wesley House Community Center is the second oldest nonprofit organization in Knoxville. It currently provides after-school educational enrichment and cultural arts for 53 students, summer day camp and a program for seniors. Wesley House is a Christian ministry, called by God to nurture wholeness and hope by empowering children and families through service and education.

Nose fungus harms area bats The U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service is trying to spread the word about white-nose syndrome, an aggressive fungus that has killed more than 5 million bats in North America since 2006.

Critter Tales Although WNS is not harmful to humans, it is currently harming our eco-

system and could therefore harm us in the future. Fish and Wildlife service director Dan Ashe says bats “provide tremendous value to the U.S. economy as natural pest control for American farms and forests.” Bats also play an essential role in helping to control insects which can spread disease to people, he said. Once a bat is infected, it displays unusual behavior such as sleeping or hunting in daylight and roosting on outside structures such as a house or barn. The fungus spreads quickly through a colony and has been known to wipe out the entire popu-

lation of bats in many areas. So far, WNS has infected bat colonies in 16 states and certain parts of Canada. If you are a caver or spelunker, help prevent the spread of WNS by avoiding

caves where bats may be hibernating. You could take the fungus from the area on your clothing and spread it to other bat colonies. Info: www.fws.gov/ whitenosesyndrome
