Valera and Svetlana met with me and my general contractor, and we were immediately impressed with their thoroughness and assessment of the work to be done. Their contract was explicit and accurate. Valera promised a nearly dustless installation, and that is what was definitely delivered. I would absolutely recommend them. My floors are gorgeous!” – Janis Smith, Sequoyah Hills

’M WRITING this outside in the

beautiful spring sunshine while it is still not too cool and not too hot. Since these perfect weather days only come around every so often, I was determined to spend some time outside rather than inside - albeit still in front of a computer screen - with the scent of Photo by Mirtography flowers and a mild breeze. Although the many petals from the flowering trees loosed by that breeze do resemble falling snow at times! I have been reminded lately that success is not just measured in a lifetime or a career, it can also be enjoyed in small doses along the way. Did you cook something new that you hadn’t tried before? Hear one of your favorite songs on the radio? Find the “justright” home or garden accessory? Finally figure out a TV show that both you and your spouse like? Those

definitely count as wins! Counting your (sometimes small) daily or weekly successes can add up to a much better outlook in general. And who doesn’t want to feel successful? Our daughter just ran her first 5K. Our son and his wife are purchasing their first home. Our friends were able to cross SXSW (South by Southwest Festival) off their Bucket List after a Spring Break trip to Austin. Our feature story homeowner, Cheryl, got her “perfect for her family” dream kitchen with Cabry Design & Cabinetry. Feel free to thrive on the success of others, too! Personally, our main success claim, as this busy week of production ends before Everything Knoxville goes to the printer, is that we managed to not eat fast food for a couple of days in a row. Take a win where you can get it!

Welcome to the Cabry Design Difference DESIGN – BUILD – ENJOY

C

A B RY D E S I G N has been designing and remodeling kitchens in the Knoxville area for more than 17 years. Whether they are providing cabinetry and know-how for a homeowner that is already using a local interior designer (inset, read Cheryl’s story) or acting as a complete Design-Build company, Cabry Design is able to help make dream kitchens a reality. From their complimentary design consultation through the stunning end result, Todd Thomas and his team at Cabry Design strive to create a functional, wellorganized space to enhance their clients’ every day lives. Everything Knoxville spoke to Todd about his business outlook and the holistic approach that encompasses every Cabry project. EK: What can potential clients expect at your initial design consultation? Todd: We typically meet with a client in our studio or their home, listen to what their goals are for the space, and talk over some preliminary ideas and budget. We really try to envision the clients’ end result and to make sure we are the right fit for each other. A good working relationship is

EVERYTHING KNOXVILLE

April 2022

a must to make everything go smoothly. If it looks like a great fit, we move ahead with a Design and Planning Agreement to get their project on our schedule. EK: And then? Todd: Our process revolves around the client. We take a team approach to helping our clients create the space they want and envision. Think of it as a story with a Hero and a Guide. We like to make the client the Hero of their project, with our team acting as the Guides. We feel this gives us a different perspective than most firms in town. So first and foremost, we listen to your wants and needs for your specific space.

With four interior designers on staff, we are able to help our clients make choices on everything from tile and flooring to paint colors. Each project and each client is different. We bring our design perspective, experience, ideas, and knowledge, but we are careful not to impose a “style.” We strive to create individual answers every time that are custom-tailored to each client while respecting their budget and personal preferences. Our Design Team then works closely with our Construction Team to evaluate construction costs and coordinate all aspects of the project installation, including lighting and hardware. EK: There are so many products to choose from when remodeling. How does Cabry make that easier? Todd: We have already done the research and currently carry four lines of distinctive, well-made American cabinetry. Cabry Design has made sure to carry lines that will work with most anyone’s budget. We are also able to offer tile from three of the largest local tile distributors, plumbing fixtures from Kraus and Dakota Plumbing, eight Photos by Alex Sattler


different cabinet hardware lines, Jura coffee systems, and LED lighting. Our custom designs are what make the difference to create a show-stopping space that you will want to share with all of your friends and family. EK: What are the best reasons to choose the Cabry Design Team? Todd: Cabry’s Design-Build is a method of project delivery in which one entity - the Cabry Team - works to provide complete design and construction services, allowing us to be by our clients’ side from the start to the finish of the entire remodel. We provide comprehensive plans that act as a “roadmap” for our construction and install teams to ensure that your dream kitchen or bathroom becomes a reality whether we are working directly with the homeowner or with an interior designer outside of our company. By offering all of these services in one place, it takes the stress off of the homeowner - no more having to find their own capable designer, source cabinetry, employ a contractor, or making the (literally) hundreds of selections and decisions that are involved in a kitchen renovation. This process also minimizes the surprises and miscommunication throughout the course of the project because we, as a team, are solely focused on that one client and that one project as a whole. Each member of the Cabry Design Team - from the designers to the installers - knows that their role is essential, and they take that responsibility seriously for each and every client. We strive to be the best at what we do and welcome your call to take the first step in making your dream space into a reality.

CHERYL’S CLEAN AND SIMPLE (BUT NOT BASIC!) DREAM KITCHEN These photos are from a recent Cabry Design cabinetry project for homeowner, Cheryl, who worked with a local interior designer on the design. Cheryl shares her experience: “We purchased our home about two years ago and always knew that we would need to remodel the kitchen, as it wasn’t our style or taste in color. We started exploring our options for the kitchen renovation, starting with the possibility of simply painting the original cabinets and then updating the countertops and backsplash like we had done at our previous home before we put it on the market. After our family lived in the space and used the kitchen for several months, it became apparent that we also needed to upgrade the cabinets in order to have the kitchen match the ‘level’ and functionality of the rest of our home. We envisioned a kitchen and living area where all of our family and friends could gather to mingle and hang out. As a family of six, including four kids ages 9-14, we needed a space where the kids and their friends would be welcomed by a simple, clean, functional kitchen. We began our lengthy design process and looked at three different cabinet companies. The moment I walked into Cabry Design - without even talking finances! - I knew we would go with this company. In my personal experience, they were so welcoming every time I walked into the studio. After speaking with Cabry Design and hearing all the cabinetry upgrades and options they had to offer, we committed to working with them on our project. We love our lighted walnut interior cabinets and drawer boxes. An all-time favorite of the whole family (and the best investment!) would be the nugget ice maker. When the Installation Team came to install the cabinetry, they went above and beyond to make everything absolutely perfect. They were always on time and cleaned up behind themselves throughout the process. When a few issues came up, they immediately addressed it, informed me along the way, and always ended with ‘We have already taken care of it though.’ We continue to be happy with our decision of going with Cabry Design cabinetry for our kitchen remodel. Working with them was a great experience! They gave us the kitchen we have always wanted in a way we could have never asked for - our dream kitchen! We are excited to begin the process again with Todd and the Cabry Design Team to create a basement kitchen design also.” April 202 2

New West Hills Dogwood Trail!

2022 SPRING EVENTS

Dogwood Arts is excited to announce the addition of the first new Dogwood Trail to be added to the Historic Dogwood Trails & Gardens program in more than 20 years! The West Hills Dogwood Trail, with more than eight miles of blooming landscapes, will make its official debut during Knoxville’s favorite springtime celebration! West Hills is one of the most established, largest, and most cherished Knoxville neighborhoods. Developed in the 1950s, West Hills was the city’s first major post-World War II subdivision to consist primarily of modern ranch-style houses. West Hills has managed to retain its residential character, due in large part to “its aggressive neighborhood advocacy group,” the West Hills Community Association. We recognize the early efforts of the West Hills Garden Club and Beautification Committee, along with the foresight of original homeowners who planted dogwoods, maintained gorgeous yards, and nurtured blooming gardens throughout the 60+ years of West Hills’ history.

The City of Knoxville uses roughly 100 gallon of custom-blended paint each year to make sure the trails stay bright pink throughout the spring season. Take a drive, a walk, or a bike ride and enjoy the scenic natural beauty of our region!

we love, clients we enjoy working with, and a great community to

work in. We wanted to share our blessings by donating a full day of service on Thursday, April 28, to anyone that needs to meet with a financial professional. Obstacles like lack of childcare, a work schedule that is either difficult/impossible to change, not having a certain level of net worth, or having debt are just a few things that can stand in the way of meeting with a financial professional. We want to remove as many obstacles as we can, so we have extended our hours, shortened the appointment time, and we will have snacks all day in case someone has missed a meal. (No obstacles here when it comes to children! Your kids and grandkids are always welcome in our office.) For Community Day to be a success, we really need your help! If you can think of anyone that would benefit from a no fee, no strings attached 30-minute meeting with a financial advisor, estate attorney, tax preparer, or financial coach, we would really appreciate it if you would help us spread the word to as many people as possible. Let us know if we can send information to your school, church, workplace, etc.

Nick & J’s Cafe: Your Hometown Diner

W

ITH INTENSE ambition and a lot of hard work, Najwan Natour has truly lived the American dream. His family emigrated to the U.S. from Palestine after the 1967 war when Najwan was only five years old. “My parents realized it was not a good situation and we had to leave,” Najwan remembers. His father came here first and eventually was able to have his wife and children join him. Like most newly arrived immigrants, his father, Naji, took whatever jobs he could get in order to support his family. Naji initially worked as a server at the Mayflower Hotel in Washington, D.C. with his siblings. He learned English along the way, and after moving south to Knoxville, he opened and operated The Copper Kettle restaurant with his brothers, Samir and Sami. It was this endeavor that gave Najwan his first “taste” of the restaurant business and decided his destiny. Throughout the following years, Najwan has owned and co-owned four eating establishments, including the popular Froggy’s and Time Out Deli with his cousin, Maurice, before striking out on his own 12 years ago with Nick & J’s Cafe off Lovell Road. He named his fifth restaurant for his beloved sons, Nick and Jordan. Najwan made the

conscious decision to put his family first. “I wanted to have more time to spend with my family, my sons, as they were growing up.” And he was able to do just that by attending their school and sports activities until both sons graduated from Knoxville Catholic High School. His older son, Nick, went on to earn a University of Tennessee degree in neuroscience and is currently back at UT for a second bachelor’s degree and to complete a master’s degree. Jordan, now a junior at UT majoring in sports management, had an internship with ESPN and has already been offered a job at the Arkansas State Football Program. Najwan is very proud that they are both honor students and made sure to never push his sons to follow him in the restaurant business, saying, “I wanted them to find their own ways in life.”

Najwan’s wife, Linda, now works with him at the restaurant after leaving a long career in banking. And just as Najwan helped his father at The Copper Kettle, Sedo (Arabic for grandfather) Naji, along with his mother, Abla, come in every morning to lend a hand getting the restaurant ready for the day truly a Natour family affair! At Nick & J’s Cafe, everything is made fresh daily - from locally sourced ground beef, chicken, and eggs to fresh locally marketed produce. Their delicious ice cream comes from It’s All So Yummy Cafe, and scrumptious baked goods are made from scratch by Tee Dedrick of Special Tee Cookies. To date, Nick & J’s Cafe has been featured on the Food Network, CNN, Fox News/Fox & Friends, and the USA Today newspaper. TripAdvisor has bestowed their Travelers’ Choice Award for 2021 on Nick & J’s Cafe and also has them ranked as the “3rd Best Restaurant to Visit” in all of Knox, Loudon, Sevier, and Blount counties. And there are honestly just too many 5-star reviews on Yelp, TripAdvisor, and Google to count! Nick & J’s Cafe just celebrated its 12-year anniversary serving all your breakfast favorites - from traditional omelets and pancakes to legendary breakfast bowls. At lunch, they serve the best burgers (nationally recognized!), sandwiches, salads, and daily specials, including vegetarian options. Stop in for a taste of their gyros, pastrami brisket, or reubens - you won’t be disappointed! Najwan is thankful for everything he has achieved, saying, “I give all the glory to God, my parents, my wife, Linda, and our employees. It would not have been possible without them.” With his decades of experience, Najwan now helps others wanting to begin or improve their own restaurants - offering his expertise on everything from start-up locations, to expanding menu items, to food service management. Be sure to contact him for a truly knowledgeable consultation of the restaurant business. Visit your local hometown diner from 7 am to 4 pm Monday through Friday and 8 am to 2 pm on Saturdays. Weekday breakfast is served from 7 to 10:30 am and from 8 to 11:30 am on Saturdays. Nick & J’s is respectfully closed on Sundays. You’ll find their menu, location, and additional information at www.nickandjscafe.com or call 865-766-5453. Stop by soon - you’re sure to love it!!

Custom Closet Systems Keep the Family Organized and Happy

M

OST FAMILIES have both organized and messy individuals, and they don’t always live in sweet harmony. Constantly tripping over someone’s shoes in the middle of the floor gets old and frustrating. Organization is not a natural inclination for everyone, but it is essential for a less stressful life. And when you live with others, it’s also a courtesy to maintain your own stuff and space. Tailored Living of Knoxville can help get life under control for all your family members with custom closet systems to meet the specific needs of each person. Kids’ Closets that Grow with Them It’s never too early to start introducing the habit of organization into your child’s world. Starting with a closet they can manage on their own or with a little help; this encourages them to be organized and responsible. There is no such thing as a “one-size-fitsall” kid’s closet, but a basic design includes: Preschool and Grade School • Low-level bins and shelves for toys and shoes they can put away themselves

Discovering Manteo A RT I C L E A N D P H OTO S BY K R I S T I PA R S O N S

Mountains to the Sea OR AS long as I can remember, I had heard stories of the Outer Banks, the oceanside end of North Carolina, a state that begins with mountains and ends at the sea. I was intrigued by the fact that though the islands are consistently shifting, they still have roots that run as deep as Appalachia. Whispers of pirates that once used the OBX as their honey hole for treasures, due to the high number of shipwrecks, drifted in from time to time. Images of the Milky Way spreading across the sky over beautiful beacons of light often popped up online. The lighthouses are symbols of beauty and hope today, but in years past, they guided seamen to safety and back home to their families. I knew that this place of beaches, beacons, and beauty, where the red wolves and wild horses run free, was a place that I needed to see. So, I packed my bags and headed east to the sandy shores of the Atlantic. The Spirit of the Outer Banks My first visit to the Outer Banks led to me finding a place that feels like a second home but is also still a dreamland. I unplugged from the world for a week in February 2020 and immersed myself in connecting with the spirit of the Outer Banks. During that week, I had the honor of being shown the best spots around by my friend and fellow photographer, Mark VanDyke. Mark leads private and group workshops in the area, and I couldn’t have asked for a better experience. I quickly found that the Outer Banks is a place where even strangers are welcomed as friends, time stands still, opportunities for adventures are limitless, and there is far

more to discover than just one stay in Avon would allow. So, I have returned time and time again. I have spent time in the shopping and luxurious relaxing area of Duck, NC, at one of the stunning Bees Nees Getaways properties. I have stayed in the wonderfully charming Saltwood Cottage, a tiny beach house in Kitty Hawk. I called Hatteras home for a week, and I took a spur of the moment trip for just a few days to Buxton. However, my most favorite town of all so far has been Manteo - a coastal gem that awaits just before crossing over the Roanoke Sound that leads to Nags Head and the entrance to Cape Hatteras National Seashore.

Discovering Manteo In 2021, I had the privilege of spending almost a full month in the heart of downtown Manteo, NC. The cottage where I stayed was a short walk from wonderful locally owned spots like OBX On the Fly, Downtown Books, Charis Coffee Company, Vineyards On the Scuppernong, Wanchese Pottery, Poor Richard’s Sandwich Shop, Outer Banks Distilling, and more. An early morning walk on the boardwalk to watch the sunrise at the Roanoke Marshes Lighthouse and then over to Roanoke Island Festival Park


became a daily ritual. Downtown was quiet and peaceful; a random local cat would stroll by from time to time, or spontaneous conversation would be sparked by someone blessed to call Manteo home. Summer days bring a heavier flow of folks, holidays are celebrated with an indescribable essence, autumn brings some of the best bluegrass artists to town with the annual Bluegrass Island Festival, and there is always both something new and something old to discover in Manteo. One interesting piece of Manteo that many miss is The Mother Vine, the oldest grape vine in North America that is believed to be 400 years old. Another piece of history there is Freedmen’s Colony of Roanoke Island, which leads to

a story of both heartbreak and hope. It’s the lesser-known lost colony that was a place of safety for those formerly enslaved during the Civil War. The history that lies within Manteo adds to the spirit of a place that few have truly experienced. Home Away from Home Calling Manteo your home away from home when in the Outer Banks allows you to not only see firsthand a coastal gem, but it supports the locals that run highly rated inns, bed and breakfast spots, locally owned hotels, vacation rentals, and all of the small business owners that work daily to thrive in their communities. Staying in Manteo also puts you in a central location to explore all of the OBX towns, the Cape

Always a Good Time to Expand Your Knowledge BY J E F F G OTC H E R

M

Y B E L OV E D essentially travels for a living, so I have spare time to do things like yard work and watching movies. I can actually sit down with a nice glass of wine and unplug. One of my favorite movies is Bottle Shock. It’s about the 1976 “Judgment of Paris” and stars Alan Rickman. This competition put Californian wine on the map. The sentiment at the time was that American wine wasn’t in the same ballpark as French wines. Steven Spurrier, a name loathed by most Vol fans, was played by Rickman, who organized a contest where the judges would “blind taste” various wines and score their quality. In that competition, a California Chardonnay would beat out some of the top producers in Burgundy, which is the equivalent of the “Miracle on Ice.” The Court of Master Sommeliers requires individuals to “blind taste” wines and correctly identify the varietal, origin, and vintage to be a sommelier. It requires

extensive knowledge of “wine theory” and lots of practice. So how do you break down wine like a pro? You break it down by sight, smell, and taste. When you look at your favorite wine, you see a glass of your favorite wine. When I see a glass of wine, whether it is my favorite or a blind pour, I see a pale lemon or a medium ruby. I’m looking at how old the wine is or whether or not there are any faults. When you smell your wine, you are seeking to identify fruits and maybe some oak. You don’t care because you like the wine. When I smell a wine, I’m sensing different levels of aromas that can hint at what kind of grape, the climate, the altitude, and the winemaking techniques I know might be particular to a specific region. There is so much more to wine than the taste itself. If I’m doing a blind taste, I make sure that the aromas match up with the flavors on the palate. If it’s red, does it have big tannins? How is the acidity? Is

it balanced? What is the intensity? Is the wine complex or simple? The answer to all these questions, with some detective work, allows one to identify the possible varietals, possible countries and climates, and the age range of the wine. Here is where wine theory comes into play. Once you get good enough to do that consistently, you can get into the realm of judging for quality. Blind tasting is a unique parlor trick. Like everything else in the wine world, it takes practice. I’d encourage you to not only practice, but read up on a particular region and try its wines... starting with California. Cheers!

Success for Trigeminal Neuralgia Sufferers! Sometimes the pain was so bad that it felt like a hot knife was stabbing my face.

P

ERRY HAS SUFFERED with severe pain in his jaw for almost three years. The pain starts from around his right ear and radiates down the side of his jaw to his chin. He always has a constant, low grade pain, but a few times a month he gets the unbearable stabbing pain. His doctor diagnosed him with Trigeminal Neuralgia and put him on Gabapentin, which helps some but doesn’t relieve the daily constant pain or the unbearable stabbing pain. Not having any other options, Perry found out about West Knox Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine off Cedar Bluff and gave them a call. He scheduled an initial consultation to see if they could help. During his consultation, they reviewed his medical history and performed an exam while he told them all about his problem. The good news was that they told him they thought they could help because they have seen hundreds of patients just like him throughout about 20 years working in clinics and hospitals, in addition to their private practices. Perry was thrilled that someone thought they could actually help him!

I have now been able to reduce my medications from every day to only two to three per week!

They laid out a customized treatment plan that he should follow in order to have the best chance of success. He decided to start treatment right away. He’s only about halfway through his recommended treatment plan, and already he has noticed significant relief. The constant, low grade pain isn’t as bad, and he hasn’t had an episode of the unbearable stabbing pains since his treatment began. Perry has also been able to reduce his medications from taking them every day to now only taking about two to three per week because he is feeling that much better.

The pain is not completely gone, but he didn’t expect a miracle overnight. He still has about a month of treatment left before they evaluate him again, but if he is doing this well already, his chances of success are very good. If you or someone you know suffer from pain and don’t know where else to turn, call 865-275-2444 today to set up an appointment at West Knox Acupuncture and Integrative Medicine.

Clear the GARAGE CLUTTER

N

O, IT’S NOT just you. Some of the mess and mounds of stuff in your garage is often just the busyness of life. However, without efficient storage and organization solutions, clutter and chaos will continue to plague you. If your garage looks chaotic, you can quickly gain control with custom garage storage cabinets from PremierGarage. PremierGarage, serving the Knoxville area for more than 15 years, will help you find storage space for just about everything. One of the biggest advantages of custom garage cabinets is they are tailored to your specific space so you can maximize the available storage space. Cabinets are designed to fit around water heaters, electrical panels, doorways, and windows. You’ll get a clean, uniform look throughout your garage without having to piece together ready-made, do-it-yourself storage pieces. Styles include traditional cabinet doors or siding doors for enclosed cabinets in narrow spaces. Cabinets can be integrated with countertops, drawers, and wall-hanging storage systems to maximize your storage space. Sturdy one-inch-thick adjustable shelves inside the cabinets are 25% thicker than the industry standard and have a load-bearing capacity of 100 pounds.

PremierGarage uses the latest concrete coating technology, making them the toughest in the industry.

Other cabinet and storage options: • Utilize unused garage ceiling space by having overhead racks installed. The heavy duty ceiling storage is perfect for seasonal or occasional use items. Overhead racks help keep wall and floor space clear so cars, bicycles, and gardening tools don’t have to compete for space. • Adding locks to doors or drawers provides additional safety precautions to keep tools or toxic products like paint thinner, radiator coolant, and fertilizer out of reach of children. • Slatwall, with its various hooks and baskets, is ideal for sports equipment and

large tools like rakes, shovels, and hoses. Slatwall helps keep everything off the floor and close to the wall for easy accessibility. • A wide range of styles, finishes, and colors let you coordinate your garage cabinets with your home’s existing décor, or you can create a whole new look for the garage. The perfect foundation for your garage cabinets is a durable custom garage floor. PremierGarage can transform an oil-stained, pitted, or peeling epoxy-coated garage floor into a showroom quality look. PremierGarage uses a proprietary hybrid polymer technology with their extensive industry knowledge and experience to provide a high-quality finish that is chemical, stain, and slip resistant. The warranted coating comes in multiple colors that coordinate with your cabinets. Never dread going into the garage again. Call PremierGarage of Knoxville to schedule a free, in-home consultation to help clear the clutter.

Is Your House S Ready to Sell? I

urface Doc also offers “Soft Washing” of siding and roofs for both businesses and homeowners, including stucco, cedar, vinyl, aluminum, stone, brick, slate, clay, asphalt, etc. We will safely clean your siding and roof without the use of high pressure. Get rid of the green and black algae on your home.

F YOUR HOME is for sale, you probably know that the first impression you give to potential buyers is priceless. To get top dollar, your home must sparkle inside and out. In particular, bathrooms and kitchens must be immaculate. Exterior hardscapes (pool decks, walkways, etc.) need to look like the backdrop for future memories, and the siding to your home needs to look like it has 20 more years of service before maintenance is needed. Even if your home is in decent shape and repair, going the extra mile to make it sparkle will boost your sale price and attract more buyers. You only get one chance to make a first impression, so make sure it’s one they won’t forget. Surface Doc specializes in getting sellers top dollar for their property. Owners John and Christina Fitzwilliam and their crew can deep clean almost any surface, inside and out. One particular client, Kimberly Thomas, was especially thankful for the job Surface Doc did in her previous home. “Our home was for sale for 16 months, with little interest from buyers,” said Kimberly. “Once we hired Surface Doc to come in and deep clean, we sold our property in just a few weeks!” What makes Surface Doc unique is their ability to clean most hard surfaces AND carpet, so you don’t need to call a separate specialist for each area. Unlike their competitor’s use of traditional carpet shampoo that simply drives dirt and bacteria into the carpet, Surface Doc has an entirely different process that uses eco-friendly emulsifiers, purified steam, and powerful suction - guaranteeing that your entire carpet structure is both cleaned and sanitized. “John and his crew cleaned my carpet, linoleum, walkways, bathrooms, kitchen, and the oil stains in the driveway,” said Kimberly. “I thought my carpet was fairly clean, although I knew there were some problem stains. I was very surprised to see how dirty it really was and the difference a restoration cleaning made. And my back patio and walkways literally glowed white after they were cleaned.” Kimberly was thrilled with the results and credits Surface Doc for the quick sale of her home. By offering cleaning and sealing of all tiled surfaces and cleaning and sealing of all exterior hardscapes and concrete, as well as soft washing siding and roofs, Surface Doc really does do it all! If your house is on the market or soon will be, call Surface Doc to deep clean your interior and exterior surfaces to give buyers an overall great first impression. Their four-step restoration process and attention to detail that John personally provides ensures amazing results every time!

Have You Heard of These Tax Saving Ideas? BY Y VO N N E M A R S H , C F P ® , C PA

A

RE YOU STARING

at your t ax return, wondering how you could pay less tax? Sometimes you have more control over your tax bill than you realize, especially if you’re retired. Yvonne Marsh, CFP®, CPA Here are a few key concepts that could help you keep more and pay less. For brokerage accounts that report taxable investment income each year on a 1099, keep an eye not just on the investment returns, but on the taxable nature of the holdings. After all, it’s not just what you earn that matters, it’s what you keep. For example, ordinary dividends are taxed at a higher rate than qualified dividends, and short-term gains are taxed at a higher rate than long-term gains. Some mutual funds generate capital gain distributions that you don’t even know about until very late in the tax year, compared to tax-managed mutual funds that are tasked with NOT adversely impacting your tax return. So choose to hold tax-inefficient, ordinary income assets in your tax-deferred retirement accounts and hold tax-efficient qualified dividend investments and tax-managed mutual funds in your brokerage accounts. Additionally, your advisor should be working with you to avoid short-term sales and wait for the preferential long-term tax treatment. Here’s a tip if you’re taking annual IRA Required Minimum Distributions and give money to charities during the year. Tell your IRA custodian to make a Qualified Charitable Distribution (QCD) and they will disburse the gift straight to your charity on your behalf. Now, you can reduce the amount of your taxable RMD by the amount of the gift - plus take the full standard deduction. A winning strategy! Beyond the direct tax savings these ideas bring, it helps in other ways: (1) How much of your Social Security that is subject to tax (from 0% to 85%) depends on how much taxable income you have. The lower your taxable income, the greater the chance that not all 85% of your SS is taxed. (2) How much you pay for Medicare Part B and Part D is determined by your adjusted gross income. Being tax-smart can keep you under the threshold of paying the dreaded IRMAA – Medicare income adjustment – every year. These strategies work year after year to save you taxes. As always, let me know if you have questions – because I have answers.

OLD GRAY CEMETERY BY S H A R A C A S E Y, K N OX H E R I TA G E I N T E R N

L

OCATED ACROSS FROM St. John’s Lutheran Church, on the corner of Tyson Street and North Broadway, Old Gray Cemetery is a beautiful example of the rural cemetery movement that was at the forefront of public design when it was dedicated in June 1852. The cemetery is named for 18th century English poet Thomas Gray, and that connection is evident in the early spring flowers that create the ambiance of a park under a canopy of the more than 40 arboretum-registered trees. This quiet downtown oasis was founded by a board of seven trustees led by William B. Reese, then president of East Tennessee University (today, University of Tennessee), with its original eight acres of land a mile northwest of the city proper bought at just $500. Though the first burial was of a Knoxville native named William Martin, who died after an accident during the city’s Fourth of July festivities in 1851, a design for the property as a whole wasn’t adopted until 1853, when local architect Frederick Douglass (not the abolitionist) proposed a layout that incorporated the natural topography of the area and allowed for walking and carriage paths that ran by each gravesite. Many of these paths were removed over the years to make space for additional graves, but the main paths still allow for cars, and all graves are accessible to pedestrians willing to stray just a little ways into the grass. While Confederate troops were stations in Knoxville, the cemetery’s board of trustees attempted to gain funds from military authorities for a fence to protect plots from camping soldiers, and while a fence was ultimately constructed, no military funds were assigned for the project. Also problematic was the use of Confederate minted currency to purchase plots, in one case $1,765 was paid only to have the board members refuse the money due to the circumstances of the war. Maintenance issues did not start or end with the advent of the Civil War. As early as 1854, the board decided to limit carriage traffic in the cemetery to prevent horses from damaging vegetation. By 1870, the cemetery had become such a popular gathering place that a police presence was requested and bylaws put in place stating that “all persons visiting the cemetery shall conduct themselves soberly and gravely.” The nature of many of the tombstones themselves also contributed to upkeep issues. While most markers were and are carved from granite, the majority of those in Old

Gray are made of softer local marble, which allows for more intricate Victorian style statue carving but also deteriorates more quickly. In 1897, a Gothic Revival porter’s lodge was added just inside the Broadway entrance. Also constructed of Tennessee marble, it has a sloping roof covered in blue and green tiles that contributes to the late 19th century fairy-tale atmosphere. Under the watchful eyes of classically inspired Victorian angels and many stately white obelisks are interred some of Knoxville’s most prominent citizens. Famous pro-unionist and post-war Tennessee governor William G. “Parson” Brownlow’s obelisk rivals the height of the trees around it. Several members of the pioneering McClung family are buried under a variety of grand monuments, and the Crozier family, including Lizzie Crozier French, makes itself known as well. Among many, many other Knoxville notables, artist Lloyd Branson, WWI pilot Charles McGhee Tyson, and Joseph Alexander Mabry, Jr., who helped establish Market Square, are also buried at Old Gray. Today, occasional burials take place in older family plots, but the yard is otherwise closed to additional interments. Old Gray Cemetery remains open throughout the week to the public and offers an interesting alternative jogging or picnic area to other, busier locations in the center of Knoxville, whilst also offering periodic community events. Knox Heritage preserves structures and places of historic or cultural significance for our community. Established in 1974 as a non-profit educational corporation, our organization works to protect and raise awareness of what is beautiful and irreplaceable in East Tennessee.



It’s in the DNA BY R A N DY PAT T E R S O N , B O O M E R O C I T Y.C O M

J

ACKSON. WHEN one hears that name, greatness, Motown, talent, and a musical dynasty all come to mind. The name and those synonyms are still relevant today. Baby boomers will remember watching the Jackson 5 (later called The Jacksons) on TV shows and even Saturday morning cartoons. Kids could rattle off the names of the entire family: Jackie, Tito, Jermain, Marlon, and Michael. Throughout the years, we’ve all followed the family through thick and thin, triumph and tragedy. Their lives have been lived in a fishbowl that most of us wouldn’t survive in. Today, there are a couple of Jacksons who are no longer with us. Michael, of course, passed away in 2009, and his father, Joe, died almost exactly nine years later. The Jacksons have all pursued their own careers. Perhaps the quietest one of the family is Tito. Though an accomplished musician (especially guitar), Tito has focused on his son’s group, 3T. He also put out a solo album in 2016 (Tito Time) and recently, a phenomenal blues album titled Under Your Spell. Tito is joined on his new album with an amazing list of artists, including Stevie Wonder, Bobby Rush, George Benson, Joe Bonamassa, Kenny Neal, and Tito's brother, Marlon. This is in addition to Tito’s abilities as a singer, songwriter, guitarist, producer, and arranger that must be part of the Jackson DNA. I reached Tito by Zoom at his studio in California to talk about the new album and a little family history. Tito shared with me the story of how he came to learn the guitar. “My father played the guitar, and it was his pride and joy. He’d put it away and tell his three oldest sons not to mess with it when he’s at work. Of course, I did. I played it for months and months. My mother would let me do it. She would tell me, ‘Your father will be home soon, so why don’t you put the guitar away before he finds out.’ I’d put it away. Do the same thing the next day or whatever. “Then like two, three months later, I broke a string. I was scared to death. My mom said, ‘Just put it away and I’ll talk to him.’ That made me feel better. It didn’t work though. It didn’t help. He punished me. Afterwards, he sits me down in a chair. He puts the guitar in my lap. He says, ‘Show me what you know.’ So I’m playing and crying. He looks at my mom and

says, ‘He’s really playing this guitar.’ She said, ‘Joe, I’ve been trying to tell you. He’s not playing with the guitar. He really wants to play it.’ My father said, ‘I’ll tell you what. You can have this guitar. I’ll just get myself another one. But I want you to learn all the songs you like on the radio.’” Tito figures that he was 10 or 11 at the time. Joe went out and bought a PA system with microphones. With daily practice after school, the Jackson 5 was born. A homebody at heart, Tito recorded much of this current album during the Covid lockdown. He explained how the legendary George Benson got involved with the album project. “I had started the recording with George Benson before we even knew anything about Covid here in America. I had met George many years back. We did a show together in Vegas and I said, ‘Say, let’s do something together one day.’ Of course, all musicians say that: ‘Let’s get together and do something one day.’ You know, that one day never came. “Then I started being featured in the B.B. King Blues Band act. I was a featured artist. The production manager was a great friend of George Benson. He wanted us all to stop by George’s house to say hi. “We stopped by his place, and we decided to record. We wanted to do something for B.B. King - some sort of tribute to B.B. That’s where ‘Rock Me Baby’ came in. We were already traveling with his (B.B.’s) daughter and his band. So that was the easiest part. That’s

how George Benson happened.” Tito’s major coup, however, was getting Stevie Wonder’s participation on the song “Love One Another.” Along with being the debut single off the album, “Love One Another” is the perfect antidote for today’s times of doubt and trepidation, as Tito’s vocals - along with Marlon Jackson, Michael K. Jackson, and others - soar above the musical bed of melodies that feature the sweet sound of Stevie Wonder’s signature harmonic style. “Now Stevie Wonder, that was a no brainer because that whole song, “Love One Another.” He’s related to my mom. He goes and visits my mom all the time and plays her the song ‘I Just Called to Say I Love You.’ So anyhow, I needed a harmonica on that song.” What is family for, after all? Watch this fun, fascinating - you’ll be surprised at who the main influence was in the Jackson brothers harmonizing - and fact-filled video interview in its entirety on Boomerocity.com.

Randy’s first interview was at the tender age of 13 with none other than Col. Tom Parker. Thirty-six years later he founded the webzine, Boomerocity. com, and has conducted close to 200 interviews with some of the most interesting people in music.

April in the Garden P

EOPLE KEEP ASKING me if we’ve had the last freeze and frost. If I knew how to predict the weather, I’d be laying on a beach in the Caribbean right now, so I’ll just tell you the averages. Our average last freeze is March 24, and the average last frost is April 13. If you’ve lived here for very long, you know that we can be well on either side of that average. In other words, don’t rush Mother Nature. She likes to make people think it’s spring and then dump 6” of snow on them. Then she laughs. With that being said, April is generally the month when gardening kicks off with a bang. Everyone that has been waiting to start gardening emerges from their homes en masse and begins to plant. I’m going to join them, but I’m also going to keep all my plant covers handy! What can you do this month? There’s a big list! • After our snow-pocalypse, the first thing to do is take a good hard look at your plants to see what damage has been done. What has freeze damage? What has weight damage from the heaviness of the snow? Please wait before you start ripping plants out or doing severe pruning. Some things that look dead are not. Give them at least a month to see if new growth emerges. Broken branches should be removed with sharp tools, but if it looks dead and is still flexible, it isn’t dead. Patience is a gardener’s best tool. • While you’re out there, look for other problems. What has insect damage? What has fungal spots from last year? What needs to be pruned, divided, moved, or composted? What has changed in the area that will have an impact on your gardening? There’s so much construction going on that some of you now have empty spots where there was once woods. Do your shade plants need to move? Do you have new neighbors that you would like to not see quite so much of? Make a list and make a plan. Big changes can seem overwhelming, so think about chopping your project into smaller pieces. It’s often a little easier on your budget, your sanity, and your family. • Let’s talk about bugs. Notice above that I said look for insect damage; I didn’t say look for insects. Many bugs are either benign or helpful, so don’t think that you must start drenching your plants in insecticide at the first sign of movement. If you see damage, however, it’s best to start treating before you have an infestation. Call if you have questions. • If you saw fungal damage during your checkup, make sure you get any diseased leaves cleaned up and away. That will go a long way in preventing problems this year. Do not put them in your compost! Some plants are prone to fungal problems, however, so be prepared to start treating them as soon as the spots appear.

BY L I S A G R U G I N

• If you’re putting new plants in, get your planting beds ready. Work in compost or aged manure to add nutrients. Get weeds out, but do not apply a pre-emergent if you’re going to plant seeds. If you’re going to plant seedlings instead, go ahead and apply a pre-emergent to make your life easier. • Get your containers ready for spring. If they’re small, dump the soil out and rinse the pot. If the plants had any fungal problems, mix a tablespoon of bleach into a gallon of water and pour it into the pot, then rinse it out. Refill the container with fresh, good quality soil. Remember to NEVER use garden soil in containers. Potting soil is for pots, garden soil is for gardens. You cannot substitute one for the other! • If your containers are large or have permanent occupants (shrubs, perennials, etc.), top dress them with a couple inches of compost or fresh soil. One-fourth inch of worm castings will also help. After 3-5 years, you really need to take everything out and start all over. • Flower beds can be planted this month, but some plants are more tolerant of cool temperatures than others. Petunias, geraniums, lantana, and some other annuals will handle a light frost. Begonias

and impatiens will turn to mush. Ask us if you have questions. • You are safe planting any of the cool season vegetables, but wait until mid-month for tomatoes, peppers, and corn. Super sweet varieties of corn should wait until the soil is around 70 degrees, which is usually early May. • Prune spring blooming shrubs within a couple of weeks after they finish blooming. Please educate yourself! Permanent damage can be done by careless whacking. • Don’t cut bulbs back until after the foliage has yellowed so they can store up nutrients for next year. BulbTone or Bone meal will help. • I encourage all of you to plant at least some of your yard in pollinator friendly plants. I also ask that you use the least toxic chemicals possible. We are stewards of the earth, and we are failing. Stop by and see all the new stuff we have, or join us for a workshop. We have been helping customers have beautiful yards for 25 years now!

UT Gardens’ Plant of the Month

Versatile, Varied, and Shade-loving Epimedium

ISHOP’S HAT and fairy wings are charming common names for Epimedium, and if you look at the flowers and newly unfurling leaves in early spring, it is clear how they came by them. As the tiny, wing-like leaves emerge from underground rhizomes in March and April, they are accompanied by clusters of delicate, dangling flowers which, with a bit of imagination, could be reminiscent of certain ecclesiastical headwear. During the past two decades, Epimedium have become increasingly popular with gardeners for their tough constitution and long season of interest in the shade garden. New selections and cultivars from enterprising plant explorers and hybridizers have expanded the offerings from just a handful 20 years ago to a smorgasbord of enticing leaf forms and flower colors that offer nearly year-round beauty. Among the many species - more than 60 at present count the foliage can range from tiny and delicate (hence, the common name fairy wings) with soft, eyelash-like edges to long, leathery, and sharply spined architectural forms. In many selections, new leaves emerge painted in red, copper, or pink shades, and those that remain partly to completely evergreen may take on tones of red to deep maroon-purple in winter. The flowers are equally diverse, appearing from very early spring to early summer in a veritable rainbow of colors, including white to red, pink, yellow, orange, copper, and deep, dusky purples. Often they are bicolored, with the outer sepals being one color and the longer, sometimes “spidery” inner petals a contrasting shade, and they can range in size from the tiny, quarter-inch white stars of E. stellulatum to the dangling, two-inch yellow “spiders” of E. ‘The Giant.’ Plants can range in size from just a few inches tall to nearly two feet and in habit from strictly clumping, with little to no spreading, to slowly spreading groundcovers that will eventually form nice stands in and around other shade-loving plants. Epimedium are best suited to bright, dappled shade in an open woodland garden, where they will put on their greatest display but have proven quite adaptable in locations ranging from morning sun to fairly deep shade. Once established, they are drought tolerant and deer are largely uninterested in their tough and unpalatable leaves. For maintenance, all that really is needed is a quick tidying up of old foliage in February, before flowers and new leaves begin emerging in March and April. Of the many varieties now on the market, a few have been standouts in my own

garden and gardens I have visited. At the top of my personal list is ‘Domino,’ a vigorous clump former that bears clouds of creamy white flowers tipped in deep rose from early spring to early summer. It is one of the longest-blooming varieties available. Also outstanding are ‘Amber Queen,’ ‘Pink Champagne,’ ‘Caramel,’ and the species E. membranaceum with its large, yellow spring blooms and ruby red winter leaf color. If you garden in shade, give these tough, adaptable, deer-resistant plants a try. You’ll be glad you did! A variety of Epimedium species and

cultivars can be found at the UT Gardens, Jackson and Knoxville. The UT Gardens includes plant collections located in Knoxville, Crossville, and Jackson. Designated as the official botanical garden for the State of Tennessee, the collections are part of the UT Institute of Agriculture. The Gardens’ mission is to foster appreciation, education, and stewardship of plants through garden displays, educational programs, and research trials. The Gardens are open during all seasons and free to the public. Visit utia.tennessee.edu/state-botanical-garden for more information.


A Few of the Many Reasons to Support Your Local Farmers Market! BY E A S T T E N N E S S E E FA R M M A R K E T S

F

ROM SAVORING produce at the peak of freshness to meeting the people who grow your food, there are countless reasons to support farmers markets. Here are just a few!

TASTE REAL FLAVORS

The fruits and vegetables you buy at the farmers market are the freshest and tastiest available. Fruits are allowed to ripen fully in the field and are brought directly to you—no long-distance shipping, no gassing to simulate the ripening process, no sitting for weeks in storage. This food is as real as it gets—fresh from the farm.

ENJOY The food you buy at the farmers market is seasonal. Shopping and THE cooking from the farmers market helps you to reconnect with the SEASON cycles of nature in our region. As you look forward to asparagus in spring, savor sweet corn in summer, or bake pumpkins in autumn, you reconnect with the earth, the weather, and the turning of the year. SUPPORT Family farmers need FAMILY your support, now FARMERS that large agribusiness dominates food production in the U. S . Sm a l l fa m i l y farms have a hard time competing in the food marketplace. Buying directly from farmers gives them a better return for their produce and gives them a fighting chance in today’s globalized economy. PROMOTE HUMANE TREATMENT OF ANIMALS

At the farmers market, you can find meats, cheeses, and eggs from animals that have been raised without hormones or antibiotics, who have grazed on green grass and eaten natural diets, and who have been spared the cramped and unnatural living conditions of feedlots and cages that are typical of animal agriculture.

KNOW WHERE YOUR FOOD COMES FROM

A regular trip to a farmers market is one of the best ways to connect with where your food comes from. Meeting and talking to farmers and food artisans is a great opportunity to learn more about how and where food is produced.

NOURISH YOURSELF

Much food found in grocery stores is highly processed and grown using pesticides, hormones, antibiotics, and genetic modification. Some of it has been irradiated, waxed, or gassed in transit. These practices may have negative effects on human health. In contrast, most food found at the farmers market is minimally processed, and many of our farmers go to great lengths to grow the most nutritious produce possible by using sustainable techniques, picking produce right before the market, and growing heirloom varieties.

CONNECT WITH YOUR COMMUNITY

Wouldn’t you rather stroll amidst outdoor stalls of fresh produce on a sunny day than roll your cart around a grocery store with artificial lights and piped in music? Coming to the farmers market makes shopping a pleasure rather than a chore!

T’S TIME to move your family’s events back outdoors, and the professionals at Undercover Systems can provide you, your family, and friends with the option to spend unlimited time out-of-doors all year-round. This spring is the perfect time to install Undercover Systems’ totally unique underdeck ceiling system under your home’s existing raised decks.

Underdeck ceilings are available in a variety of colors and textures - even bead board! - to perfectly complement your existing architecture and landscaping plans. “It’s great time to weatherproof all of your future out-of-door events,” said Jim Conn, owner of Undercover Systems. “Throughout the entire process, our skilled craftsmen work with you, each step of the way, from consultation until your project is completed to your satisfaction.

New “‟ Summer Camp” for Adults at Tremont Institute

G

REAT SMOKY MOUNTAINS

Institute at Tremont has announced their new Naturalist Week, a summer program just for adults taking place June 20-24. Naturalist Week is a five-day, four-night residential experience for adults who want to learn about and explore the natural world. Like all Tremont summer camps, Naturalist Week will take place at Tremont’s campus inside Great Smoky Mountains National Park. “Our summer camps are known for providing fun and educational experiences for kids inside the national park,” said Erin Rosolina, marketing manager at Tremont. “Naturalist Week is our way to extend the summer fun to our adult participants, as well as meet the demand for more adult field programs.” Tremont is a residential environmental education center based in Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Each summer, they host camps for youth ages four to 17. Throughout the year, they also host adult field programs, such as photography workshops and their Southern Appalachian Naturalist Certification Program, an eight-course program that provides fundamental and specialty skills in Southern Appalachian ecology and interpretive techniques; participants who

Naturalist Week - Bill Griffin

complete the program receive a certificate from the University of Tennessee. “Our adult programs are incredibly popular,” said Rosolina. She reported that of the 12 naturalist courses Tremont is offering in 2022, nine have sold out already. “A couple sold out within the first 24 hours that registration was open.” Naturalist Week will offer a unique opportunity for adults to disconnect, unwind, and discover the wonders of the Smoky Mountains with activities and adventures guided by Tremont’s experienced on-staff naturalists. The week is designed for all levels of experience, from casual nature-lovers to seasoned explorers. Activities will include

animal tracking, birding, exploring cultural history, identifying plants, stargazing, and storytelling around the campfire. “At Tremont, we believe that everybody has the innate ability to be curious, ask questions, and experience wonder,” said Rosolina. “We’re excited to be able to facilitate these child-like experiences for our older learners in this new way.” Registration for Naturalist Week is available at gsmit.org/naturalist-week. Registration includes food, lodging, instruction, and materials inside the national park.

Center New Exhibitions Opening Emporium April 1

T

HE ARTS & Culture Alliance is pleased to present five new exhibitions at The Emporium Center in downtown Knoxville from April 1-30. Most of the works will be for sale and may be purchased through the close of the exhibition by visiting in person or the online shop at KnoxAlliance.store. In addition to the First Friday reception on April 1 from 5 to 9 pm, the Emporium will debut its newest expansion, The Arrowmont Gallery, from 5 to 8:30 pm at 110 S. Gay Street. Arrowmont’s Board of Governors and staff host this grand opening of their first permanent space off-campus: a new gallery in the Arts District of downtown Knoxville. Richardson & Marilyn Avery Turner: Recent Work in the Lower Gallery Richardson Turner presents an autobiographical series of prints using images he has created during the last three years. They represent memories of the pursuit of a certain muse from 1964 to 1974. The works are made with a black lithograph key drawing, followed by screen printed color layers. Artist statement excerpt: I wrote text to accompany this work, Richardson Turner which was an integral part of creating the compositions and remembering dream-like details. Originally from New York City, Marilyn Avery Turner has exhibited work in more than one-third of the states in the U.S. and has received many awards in national exhibitions. Artist statement excerpt: These works are metaphors for time and its forward thrust. The designs and images from Pre-Colombian cultures have been an important source of inspiration for me, as have the Western motifs. All of the pictorial elements are derived from monotypes, which I then collage to create the monotype/chine Marilyn Avery Turner colle works in this exhibit. Fritz Massaquoi (1926-2022): In Memoriam in the Upper Gallery This exhibit pays tribute to the long and prolific career of a multi-media artist. Fritz was a self-taught painter who also worked in batik, tie-dye, weaving, printmaking, and papermaking. A longtime Emporium resident artist, his works have been collected and exhibited internationally. He was also an active art teacher, inspiring his students wherever he taught. The son of West African royalty, Fritz relocated to the U.S. due to civil war in his home country of Liberia. He created nearly all the works in this exhibition after his arrival in Knoxville in 1990. Sale proceeds from Fritz’s paintings will go toward supporting a school he helped build in his ancestral village of N’Jabacca, Liberia.

Knoxville Opera: Giacomo Puccini Exhibition in the Display Case This unique exhibition includes music, photographs, and memorabilia of composer Giacomo Puccini from the private collection of Brian Salesky. Highlights include 1st edition 19th and 20th century piano/vocal scores, librettos, and photographs, some autographed by legendary opera singers. This display is presented in conjunction with Knoxville Opera performances of Puccini’s music on Sunday, April 24, at Sacred Heart Cathedral and Friday, April 29, at the Bijou Theatre. For more information, visit KnoxvilleOpera.com. Booder Barnes - All the “ic”s on the North Wall Artist statement: As a suffix, “ic” means having the character of, having the form of, or the nature of. Also, “ic” suggests what something is similar to, caused by, or made of. Sometimes the “ic” word compels what I should paint. Other times, what’s painted suggests an adjective or adverb that describes the painting. None of these paintings are really representational but rather my interpretation or abstraction of the “ic.” Barnes moved from New York state to Tennessee 26 years ago. Nicholas Cockrell: Covenant of Time in the Atrium Time is fundamental to all of life. In every aspect, time is considered as the duration, cycles, periods, changes, and/or transitions that mark one’s existence. From the rising of the sun, the phases of the moon, climate seasons, birth, death, and everything in between, time is present and passing. Similarly, God’s love is tantamount with time. God’s love is present. Since time is fundamental to all life, and God’s love is interwoven with time, God’s love is fundamental to life. Therefore, God has a Covenant of Time. In all moments of time, God’s love is inseparable. Cockrell started painting at the onset of Covid-19’s debut in the U.S., and painting allowed him to express himself in newer ways that photography had yet to satiate. When one of his roommates passed away tragically in April 2020, Nicholas grieved through painting: It gave him the space to cry, scream, be undone, feel, and heal. The grief journey is far from over, but painting is forever inseparable from that piece of his story. As he continues to paint, he finds himself exploring past wounds and trauma, philosophical thoughts, and faith through the emotional range of colors. The exhibitions will be on display at the Emporium Center, located at 100 S. Gay Street in downtown Knoxville. The Emporium is open to the public Monday through Friday from 9 am to 5 pm and Saturday from 10 am to 1 pm. Please note, the Emporium will be closed on Saturday, April 9 (but open on Sunday, April 10), and closed on Friday, April 15. For more information, call 865-523-7543 or visit KnoxAlliance.com.

SUCCESS

We receive more comments from Everything Knoxville readers than any other form of advertising. Homeowners pull out the articles and keep them! I just had a customer tell me she had 14 years-worth, so she could take them with her if she moved! Fewer people are reading newspapers, radio and TV advertising are very expensive, and as small business owners it’s hard to target specific demographics. Even when times were lean, our participation in Everything Knoxville was the one thing I refused to cut in our budget because we knew how much it helped our business grow. We have been advertising in Everything Knoxville since 2007, and it continues to be the best way to get our information in the hands of the people we want to reach.

You’re not just asking yourself about the things you want for today or tomorrow; you’re asking about what you want to be true about you when you are 65 years old (or 10 years from now if you’re already there or older). Begin by writing down the answers to the questions above. It may take a while, AND those questions may not be enough. You may want to add to them by defining what you want in specific aspects of your life. The point of the exercise is to help you start defining what kind of life you want to have so you can move purposefully toward it, rather than letting your daily circumstances determine your direction. Defining your “More” is a first step toward establishing the targets you want to move toward in your life. On my website, I’ll talk about how we establish the mindset and actions that help us reach those targets. Establishing a vision for your life is just one of the ways I help Career and Business coaching clients take steps toward the work-life they want. Dr. Jim Bailey, an East Tennessee native, has a passion for helping others maximize their lives and make positive impacts through career, business, and leadership coaching and in mentoring and serving in local youth and UT ministries.

EvolveX L

NON-INVASIVE CONTOURING TREATMENT

OOKING FOR a non-invasive way to tighten loose skin, enhance muscle tone, smooth cellulite, and contour your body? If so, it’s time to Evolve. EvolveX by Inmode is here to help you tone and tighten - all without an invasive procedure and with minimal downtime. EvolveX offers non-surgical body contouring through its three different procedures: Evolve Tite, Evolve Transform, and Evolve Tone. All three Evolve procedures are available at Southeastern Dermatology. What is EvolveX Technology? EvolveX technology, used to shape and tone your body, relies on radio frequency (RF) energy to deliver heat and results. When applied by skilled medical professionals - like Dr. Doppelt and his staff - the RF energy in EvolveX can deliver target fat reduction, skin tightening, and cellulite reduction. EvolveX can be used in many areas of the body. In fact, you might be able to target multiple body areas during a single session. Areas of the body that respond well to EvolveX technology include the arms, hips, thighs, waist, and love handles. EvolveX comes in three different treatments: Evolve Tite, Evolve Tone, and Evolve Transform. While Evolve Tite relies on RF technology, Evolve Tone uses electromagnetic technology. Evolve Transform uses both. Evolve Tite Evolve Tite remodels the skin by tightening loose or sagging areas. It is a non-invasive procedure that can be done in Dr. Doppelt’s office during a lunch break. This quick and easy procedure can be customized to meet your specific concerns. It can treat loose skin on the tummy after pregnancy or weight loss, loose skin on the upper arms, and other trouble spots. The Evolve Tite treatment is delivered via a hands-free applicator. Applicators can be applied to multiple body areas at once. The Evolve Tite procedure was developed under very strict medical guidelines and has been optimized to provide maximum results, even when multiple areas are targeted. Evolve Tite works by using radiofrequency technology to apply volumetric heat to the skin’s subdermal layers. The radiofrequency technology ensures the heat is delivered uniformly, so no area of the application area is over or under treated. Evolve Tite is recommended for anyone who seeks natural-looking skin remodeling. It can give skin a tighter, more youthful appearance. There is no downtime or recovery period. The procedure is quick and painless, and you can return to

regular activities immediately. Dr. Doppelt and his staff can tell you how many Evolve Tite treatments you’ll need to achieve your aesthetic goals. Evolve Tone Sometimes you don’t get the results you want no matter how many reps you do in the gym or miles you log running on the road. If you’re seeking to tighten and tone your body and muscles, Evolve Tone might be the answer. Evolve Tone can add definition and enhance your natural physique. It is a non-invasive treatment that requires no downtime and won’t leave you with unsightly scars. Evolve Tone can increase muscle strength and tone. Evolve Tone relies on a different technology than Evolve Tite. Evolve Tone uses electromagnetic energy to stimulate the muscles and cause involuntary contractions. Your muscles contract in a way that replicates a workout - sweat not required. The treatment can be used on many areas of the body, including the abdomen, flanks, and buttocks. Like other Evolve treatments, Evolve Tone is painless and involves no downtime. The number of sessions required depends on your goals and can be determined by Dr. Doppelt. Evolve Transform While Evolve Tite targets loose and sagging skin and Evolve Tone increases muscle strength and tone, Evolve Transform uses two kinds of technology in one innovative procedure that builds and strengthens muscles while enhancing the appearance of your skin and treating fat using both electrical muscle stimulation to strengthen and tone while radio frequency provides deep heating of tissue and fat. The end result is a sculpted, leaner appearance with tighter skin. Evolve Transform is delivered by a medical professional with a hands-free applicator. Multiple body areas can be targeted at once. Evolve Transform can be used to provide a slimmer, smoother appearance to the back, and, arms, thighs, and other areas of the body. Are you ready to take a step toward a more youthful appearance? Tighten up, smooth it out, and tone it up with EvolveX treatments at Southeastern Dermatology. No matter whether you choose Evolve Tite, Tone, or Transform, we can provide a customized treatment plan to help you reach your aesthetic goals. Contact us today at 865-474-8800 to schedule a consultation and Evolve into your best body yet.
