MUS, C’ville seniors honored Two area seniors earn Presidential Scholars By Lela Garlington 901-529-2349


The Tennessee Girls Lacrosse Association state championship game last Saturday at Hutchison came down to a matchup of two local teams — Hutchison, the 3-time defending state champ and upstart Houston. The Sting struggled early, but pulled away for a 17-2 victory and their fourth straight state title.

Schools to split $52.2M for upgrades By Kyle Veazey 901-529-2799

The County Commission on Monday approved a capital spending plan for Shelby County Schools that carved out an additional $4.8 million for schools that will soon be part of the new municipal districts. By a vote of 8-3, the commission approved a proposal from Commissioner Mike Ritz in which a total of $52.2 million will be spent on capital requests out of the current iscal year budget. That’s $47.4 million for current and future SCS

schools — almost all that the system asked for in its original $51.6 million request. Ritz, Steve Basar, Walter Bailey, Terry Roland, Henri Brooks, Melvin Burgess, Mark Billingsley and Chris Thomas voted for the plan. Justin Ford, James Harvey and Sidney Chism voted against it. Heidi Shafer abstained and Steve Mulroy was not present. Ritz’s proposal includes 10 projects in all of the future suburban districts except for Millington, where a roof replacement for Millington High was already planned.

In brief


LACROSSE Smith, Gearhardt, Chloe Duke (Johns Hopkins), Lauren Atkins, Parker Tenet, Shelton Wittenberg and Carolyn Kelley formed a senior class that went 83-3 over their four years. “I’m excited, but I’m sad,” said Sting coach Sam Ziegler. “These seniors have contributed so much and I’m already thinking about next year and how much we’re going to miss them.” But while the seniors played huge roles in Hutchison’s run to the title, the Sting’s prodigious underclass talent was on display as well. Eighth-grader Elizabeth Farnsworth scored four goals and assisted on two, while freshman Griffin Gearhardt had three goals. Sophomore Jennie Davis had an excellent game in goal, especially early on when Hutchison was having trouble putting shots on target. “Wasn’t she amazing?,” said Loring Gearhardt of Davis. “We’re lucky to have her for the next two years.” Hutchison was leading only 1-0 deep into the irst half. But they closed with ive goals in the last six minutes to lead 6-0 at halftime and continued to pour it on after the break. After their slow start, the Sting made 16 of its last 23 shots. “It think it was more what we weren’t doing,” said Ziegler. “We weren’t catching or connecting but once we started getting downield, the diference was night and day.” Houston, which ends the year 17-6, didn’t score until Abigail Fuller got one with 10:40 left in the game. Olivia Flynn scored late and goaltender Lauren Lazure made several key stops to give Houston its chances in the irst half. “My gosh, I’m just so proud of the way we pulled together,” said Houston coach Paige Michael, whose team battled through a variety of injury problems to reach that championship game for the irst time in school history. “When it was still 1-0 (in the irst half) I thought if we could have gotten a goal it would have given us a boost.”

The vote marked an end to a bumpy path for SCS’ capital-improvement requests. SCS had originally sought $51.6 million, but Shelby County Mayor Mark Luttrell’s administration proposed funding $13.9 million, saying the rest of the requests should be evaluated further and funded based on a study of priorities. SCS Supt. Dorsey Hopson praised the “spirit of collaboration” between school and municipal interests and the commission, but said there was much work to go. “We have so many needs — even with the vote today, we still have so many more,” he said.



Two schools get new principals

Mike Brown/The CoMMerCial appeal

Dana Schillawski helps her mother, Joyce Aliperti, 85, at Page Robbins Adult Day Care Services in Collierville. Schillawski has been the primary caregiver for her mother since she developed signs of dementia 3½ years ago. She takes her mother to Page Robbins four days a week, which eases her own stress.

Care of caregiver Adult day services aid patients, families By Lela Garlington 901-529-2349

Dana Schillawski of Germantown felt guilty about putting her mother in an adult day care center for those with dementia and Alzheimer’s. “It was like sending a child of to day care,” she said. “Are you ready to let go?” But she quickly found on the two days her mother, Joyce Aliperti, was at Page Robbins Adult Day Services in Collierville, that Aliperti enjoyed making new friends. And over time Schillawski’s own health improved when she didn’t feel as much stress from being a round-the-clock caregiver. For the past 18 months, Aliperti has been going to the center four days a week from about 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. “If we didn’t have Page Robbins, we would have probably put my mother in a nursing home. It’s been a godsend,” said Schillawski, 51, who worked in sales for 20 years before becoming a full-time caregiver 3½ years ago to her mother and her two teenage stepsons.

A recent study published online in the American Journal of Geriatric Psychiatry found that family caregivers show an increase in the beneicial stress hormone DHEAS on days when they use an adult day care service for their relatives with dementia. Researchers at Pennsylvania State University and the University of Texas at Austin found that DHEA-S is associated with better long-term health. “This is one of the irst studies to show that DHEA-S can be modiied by an intervention, which, in our case, was the use of an adult day care service,” said Steven Zarit, professor of human development and family studies at Penn State. “We know that caregivers are at increased risk of illness, because of the long hours of care they provide and the high levels of stress,” Zarit explained. “These indings suggest that use of adult day care services may protect caregivers against the harmful efects of stress associated with giving care to someone with dementia.” DHEA-S he said, “helps calm the stress response down, pre-

vents tissue damage, and leads to a positive mood. In chronic stress situations, DHEA-S is depleted and cannot do this protective job.” Schillawski, who didn’t participate in the study, said the time away from her mother “gives me a break during the day. It deinitely helps. I’m not worried about her.” Because her mother has chronic bronchitis, she said, “If she starts coughing, her coughing can turn into choking. That irst and second week (of her being at Page Robbins), I was constantly listening for her cough even though she wasn’t here.” Schillawski also found the constant stress was jeopardizing her own health: “My whole body ached. I felt like I had the lu.” When her doctor ran blood tests on her hormones, he told her, “I can’t believe you can walk or even function.” Schillawski had a dormant thyroid disorder that she had kept at bay by eating healthy and exercising. Herbie Krisle, executive director of Page Robbins is not surprised by the study’s results. “We have long known that caregivers beneit from their loved ones attending an adult day service program,” he said.

Collierville school oicials recently announced new principals to head Collierville High and Collierville Elementary. Chip Blanchard, who has worked for the past year as the Collierville Middle School principal, will be moving up to take over at Collierville High after Russell Dyer left to become the Collierville School District’s human resources director. Melissa McConnell has been selected to head Collierville Elementary, whose previous principal, Louise Claney, is now the director of curriculum and accountability. Blanchard, 35, and McConnell, 39, have worked their way up in the ranks within the Shelby County Schools system. Both will start their new jobs at the end of this school year.

Library expansion, courier service OK’d

Collierville has plans for a library expansion, renewing the private contract and adding extra work for couriers to deliver books and materials to teachers at the eight municipal schools in Collierville. The Collierville Board of Mayor and Aldermen unanimously approved a $75,000 contract Monday night with Haizlip Studio and up to $3,000 in expenses. Friends of the Collierville Burch Library pledged $25,000 toward the design contract with the town picking up the remaining $50,000 cost. Town oicials want Haizlip Studio to seek community input and analyze the library’s needs and lay the groundwork for a $4 million expansion. Since Collierville Burch Library opened in March 2001, the town’s population has jumped by 47 percent. Collierville library director Deanna Britton said teachers are excited: “It’s not for their personal reading,” she stressed. “It’s to support them in their classrooms.”


WEEKLY would love to know each one of them.” Hannah, a seventhgrader at White Station Middle School, attended Camp Good Grief last fall. During the three-day camp, she talked openly about her feelings with others experiencing the same loss she had. “I can’t usually do that with my friends,” she said. While wanting to maintain the camp contacts she made, she can’t wait to attend the next Camp Good Grief as a junior counselor. our government is a humbling experience for a high school student,” Lamb said. Brian K. Smith, director of MUS college counseling, noted Lamb’s tenacity and accomplishments: “Having battled a serious heart condition throughout most of his high school career, William remained on top of his academic work despite what others might consider insurmountable circumstances.” “We’re excited and happy,” said Lamb’s mother, Micki Lamb, a former

“We know what it’s like to lose someone at a younger age,” she explained. “I think it’s cool that we’re going to be helping younger kids who have lost their parents. It helps us to help them.” Angela Hamblen, the center’s director, is overseeing the new “1520” group in which members must be at least 13, have attended Camp Good Grief in the past and are in a good place with their own grief and making smart choices in their lives. teacher. During the past four years when her son would miss weeks of school, she said, “There were times when he’d have eight hours of homework at night to make up his work.” Heart surgery was the solution to his ordeal, but the operation convinced the student — whose father, John Lamb, is a pharmacist — that he didn’t want to be a doctor. “Getting stuck over 70 times with needles convinced me medicine is probably out,” he joked.

All aboard! Collierville Elementary students ‘cruise’ to Panama, ‘navigate’ canal By Lela Garlington 901-529-2349

With the beat of Calypso music playing, students at Collierville Elementary traipsed past crisscrossed oars, an old trunk and a short gangplank before boarding a “cruise ship” on May 5 inside the school’s gym for a daylong trip to Memphis in May’s honored country, Panama. Since August, teachers and a band of 35 PTA volunteers with a budget of $2,000 planned how to make the skinny Central American country come alive for 850 students from kindergarten through fifth grade. Like other schools throughout Shelby County, Collierville Elementary has celebrated each of the honored MIM countries for at least 30 years.

With their passports stamped at each station, students visited a rain forest with three live goldfish swimming in a tub, sailed toy boats down a simplified working model of a canal, sampled plantain chips and coconut rice, made music with maracas, claves, guiros or drums, and designed paper molas, an indigenous art form of turtles, dogs, sunfish, birds and other animals. Each student wore red, white and blue headbands symbolizing the colors of the Panamanian flag. “They may not ever visit Panama, but this will give them a glimpse of what the country is like and what you would see and hear,” said first-grade teacher and social studies leader Michele Greene. The apparent biggest hits involved food as students tasted coconut rice

and plantain chips. “If you crumble it up together it was like cottage cheese and bacon bits,” said fifthgrader Taryn Miskowiec, 11. Volunteers played short videos or slideshow presentations at some of the stations. Overseeing the Panama Canal, PTA volunteer Angie Evers wore a traditional Panamanian gauzy skirt and top that she bought while living there when she was an Air Force pilot. “It is hotter in Panama than it is here in July,” she told the students. “Can you believe that?” Fifth-grader Ben Stroud, liked the canal: “It’s interesting how the locks work and raise up the ships,” he said. As the day came to end, Greene said, “It made me smile to see kids dancing down the hallway just enjoying the day learning about Panama. This is good for them to see all the pieces of the culture.”

Teachers recognized with special program By Meena Viswanathan Special to The Weekly

Mahatma Gandhi once said: “I have always felt that the true textbook for the pupil is his teacher.” Taking this message to heart, Hindu Swayamsevak Sangh Memphis hosted the Guru Vandana (Salutations to the Teacher) program May 3 at the Collierville Burch Library to coincide with the Teacher Appreciation Week. The children of HSS Memphis Balagokulam sent invitations to their respective school teachers requesting them to join the celebration. Those invited included teachers from Grahamwood Elementary, Tara Oaks Elementary, Germantown Middle, Schilling Farms Middle, and Briarcrest Christian School.

After the welcome speech by emcee Manoj Bhaskaran, the program oicially started with the lighting of the lamp. One of the students explained the signiicance of how this ritual removes darkness of ignorance and brings light of knowledge into our lives. This was followed by students singing prayer songs under the guidance of music teacher Shankari Manoj. HSS Mid-South Regional Secretary Ravi Sahasrabudhe gave an overview of HSS, a voluntary, nonproit, social and cultural organization and its activities across the country. He went on to introduce Balagokulam, a weekly program where families come together to participate in yoga, games, songs, stories, and discussion relating to Hindu heritage

and culture. HSS volunteer Ravi Yarramsetty touched upon the time-honored “Guru-Shishya Parampara” (teacher-student tradition) and talked about the importance of recognizing teacher contributions at every opportunity. He then invited the teachers to share their thoughts on the occasion. “It’s like a two-way street when you get to know children from other cultures,” said Theresa Case, a second-grade teacher at Grahamwood Elementary. She also pointed out that having such a diverse group of children in class gives her the opportunity to learn about their diferent cultures and also allows students to learn from each other as well.

Health Science Center College of Dentistry talked about the challenges in teaching young children and appreciated the immense efort put by school teachers in raising a whole new generation.

The children then honored their teachers with a rose and a memento. The cultural segment featured a yoga demonstration by Collierville Yoga instructors, Troy Taylor and Jaisree Pudukotai.

School partners with Barnes & Noble to hold book fair By Katherine Perry Special to The Weekly

Students, pa rents, teachers, grandparents and friends all gathered for a wonderful evening of “Reading Under the Stars” at the Bailey Station Elementary book fair held at Barnes & Noble. BSE librarian, Jennifer Boren, coordinated the event with Barnes & Noble education specialist Lisa Stachowski, who said the event was one of the best she’s ever seen. The event was held to kick of the school’s Summer Reading Challenge.

“Our main goal is to foster a love of reading that will carry the students through the summer as we all work together to accumulate one million minutes of reading by September,” says Boren. Students and parents took the opportunity to select books that were on the school’s suggested summer reading list as well as titles that appealed to them personally. Throughout the evening, teachers read their favorite stories to children and the Bailey Station Choruses performed special musical selections.

Fifth grade students engaged in a Poetry Slam in the café, where the Bear Claw, a unique BSEthemed beverage, was served. Drawings were held for door prizes and students were encouraged to “catch a teacher reading” as they shopped throughout the store. Once caught, teachers rewarded the students with prizes. In addition, students enjoyed having their faces painted and creating special bookmarks to use over the summer. Katherine Perry teaches at Bailey Station.

Heavy hitter From college to the Big League in 6 years By Lesley Young Special to The Commercial Appeal

Steven Reed picked up a side job helping friends and family move while he attended the University of Memphis. Word kept spreading, and upon graduation, Reed, 29, who is from the Germantown area, saw an opportunity. He knew he could leverage his employment of responsible workers, his reputation, and his understanding of just what it took to move a family’s house full of goods. So he pooled his savings and formed Big League Movers. Since the company opened in Memphis in 2008, Big League sales have grown an average of 40 percent each year. The company has expanded to Atlanta. Now, Reed plans to add three trucks to his fleet of 19. One key to growth: He posts short biographies of

The Outback is the country’s largest off-leash dog park, nestled away on a 120acre plot in the northeastern end of Shelby Farms Park. Dog lovers are familiar with it, but staf members at the Shelby Farms Park Conservancy want to introduce others to the site. That’s why they created the Dog-A-Roo Festival, sponsored by Memphis Veterinary Specialists, held last Saturday. “There are plenty of park users that this is the only area of the park that they use, so it’ll be a new and exciting way for them to engage with the area,” said Rebecca Dailey, communications coordinator for the conservancy. “But there are people that deinitely haven’t

Conservancy event manager Natalie Wilson is hoping the Dog-A-Roo Festival will become an annual event. “What’s unique about the Dog-A-Roo is it’s for the everyday dog,” Wilson said. “It’s for the everyday owner.

In struggle with obesity, many choose weight-loss surgery as best option By Erinn Figg Special to The Commercial Appeal

In the gym, on the streets or at the salad bar, it’s common to meet people on a mission to lose those 10 to 15 extra pounds. But for more than one-third of Americans, ighting the battle of the bulge can equate to ighting the battle of a lifetime. When that war against the epidemic of obesity begins, many Americans choose bariatric surgery as their weapon of choice. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, about 78 million or 34.9 percent of U.S. adults sufer from obesity, which is categorized as having a Body Mass Index of 30 or more. Closer to home, a 2013 Gallup-Healthways report showed that Tennessee had the seventh highest obesity rate in the nation last year, with 29.6 percent of the state’s residents weighing in as obese. When most people hear the word “obese,” they immediately think “large,” or worse, “fat,” but the issue extends far beyond appearance. More than 40 diseases, known as comorbidities, are linked to obesity, including Type 2 diabetes, heart disease, stroke and several kinds of cancer. In 2006, Julia Mills of Cordova, then 51, learned about comorbidities irsthand when she was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes related to excess weight. “Over the years, I had tried all sorts of diferent things to lose weight, but diabetes was the kicker for me in the decision to have surgery,” she said. While 99 percent of weight-loss surgery patients choose one of three American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgeryapproved surgeries — an adjustable gastric band, a sleeve gastrectomy or a gastric bypass — the remaining one percent, including Mills, opt for an alternative method. After much research, Mills chose to have a patented procedure called a mini gastric bypass at an out-of-state clinic and was extremely satisied with the results. “Two weeks after surgery, my blood sugar was normal and it’s been normal ever since,” said Mills, who lost 75 pounds and has kept it of after having the surgery in 2008. In March, new results from a threeyear study spearheaded by the Cleveland

Clinic’s Bariatric and Metabolic Institute showed that either gastric bypass surgery or sleeve gastrectomy did more to improve the symptoms of diabetes, high blood pressure and high cholesterol in overweight and obese participants than intensive treatment with drugs alone. In addition, study participants who had one of the two surgeries lost more weight, had better kidney function and saw greater improvements in quality of life than those who did not have surgery. Dr. George Woodman of Baptist Weight Loss Center at Baptist Memorial Health Care is on a mission to educate area primary care physicians on the importance of recognizing and referring weight loss surgery candidates before comorbid conditions occur. According to the most recent statistics from ASMBS, in 2010 there were 150,000 to 160,000 bariatric surgeries, which relected just one percent of the population eligible for them. In most areas, to qualify for bariatric surgery, patients must either have a BMI of 40 or greater or have a BMI of 35 and at least two obesity-related comorbidities. (A BMI calculator is available online at Many insurance plans cover at least some bariatric surgery costs. “About half the people primary care doctors see every day are candidates for surgery,” Woodman said. “We would much rather see somebody when they’re younger and before they’ve developed the comorbid conditions that come with obesity. Why wait to develop diabetes? Why wait to develop high blood pressure? Why wait until you need a knee replacement? Let’s start seeing these patients earlier.” Bronwyn Morgan, 43, a principal scientist at Merck Consumer Care in Memphis, is one such patient who saw comorbid complications on her horizon and decided to prevent them. “I had gotten to where I was considered morbidly obese,” she said. “I couldn’t do some of the things I wanted to do with my kids. I was lucky I didn’t have any serious comorbidities like high blood pressure or diabetes, but they were a real possibility in my future.” Morgan had weight-loss surgery at St. Francis Center for Surgical Weight Loss

There are three primary types of bariatric surgery procedures approved by the American Society for Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery. Adjustable Gastric Band: An inflatable band is placed around the upper portion of the stomach, creating a small stomach pouch above the band, reducing the amount of food the stomach can hold and creating a feeling of fullness. Induces excess weight loss of 40 to 50 percent. Sleeve Gastrectomy: More than 80 percent of the stomach is removed, leaving a tubular pouch that holds a smaller volume of food. Causes favorable changes in gut hormones that suppress hunger and improve satiety. Induces excess weight loss of 50 percent or greater. Gastric Bypass: Stomach is reduced to the size of a walnut and attached to the middle of the small intestine. Restricts the amount of food that can be consumed; produces favorable changes in gut hormones that reduce appetite. Induces excess weight loss of 60 to 80 percent.

last June. She had planned on getting an adjustable gastric band, but after attending one of the center’s free educational seminars, she decided to get gastric bypass surgery instead. “In our seminars, we teach that in order to see long-term success with any weightloss surgery, you have to change your mind and your whole life,” said Leslie Albers, the center’s bariatric program manager. “What we do is not a magic bullet. Some people think this surgery is all they’re going to need, but that’s not the case. What our doctors say is the surgery is a tool to get you where you need to be. Our patients are required to go through two education classes about nutrition and post-operation lifestyle changes.” Since her surgery, Morgan has lost 120 pounds. She pays attention to what she eats and exercises, something she couldn’t do comfortably before her surgery. “There are so many things I can do now,” she said. “Little things you never think of, like having the seatbelt in my car it me better. Or I can pop down on the loor and play a game with my kids without being uncomfortable. It makes all the difference in the world.”

Stress impacts all of us. How you deal with that stress can ultimately make or break your health. You may be experiencing a physical stress such as a muscle or bone injury or even getting ready for a surgical procedure. Even if you’re not feeling physical stress, that doesn’t mean you’re immune. You may be facing emotional stressors like job issues, inancial worries or depression. The bottom line is that regardless of its origin, stress is cumulative, and it can manifest itself physically. No matter where your stress comes from, fueling your body in healthful way can help. So often we allow our busy (stressful) lives to trump getting to the grocery store, cooking, exercising or spending our hard-earned cash on high-quality foods. By taking the time and efort to feed your body well, you can improve your overall well-being and your ability to ight physical and emotional stress. Let’s focus on adding proteinrich foods to your diet. When you have times of physical stress like injury or a surgery, your overall protein needs to increase due to muscle tissue damage, the need for muscle tissue repair and recovery. During the acute stages of injury, our protein needs can increase dramatically. Depending on the amount of damage sustained and healing that may need to occur, your protein needs can almost double. So, if you’re in an acute stage of injury, surgery, or healing it’s important to focus on this key ingredient. Believe it or not, your protein intake can impact your emotional stress as well. Studies suggest that increased protein at meals leads to increased satiety. When we’re more satisied physically, we’re less likely to use food for comfort or emotional reasons. I don’t know about you, but most everyone I encounter (including myself from time to time) uses food for things other than fuel. Planning a satisfying diet with protein-rich meals may be your next step in stress management. Try protein-rich foods like eggs, cheese or Greek yogurt to pump up your breakfast. Add leftover meats to salads or sandwiches for a satisfying lunch. Throw a couple cheese sticks or almonds into your afternoon snack for staying power until dinner. And, last but not least, plan your meals ahead so you’ll have time to prepare a tasty evening meal. Some of our favorite dinner-time protein sources include lat-iron steak, grilled chicken, baked salmon and pork tenderloin. What are your favorite protein sources? Write them down now and include them in your plan for a lower-stress week.

Millington 4-year-old to be honored during 2014 Walk to Cure Arthritis By Sara P. Shirley 901-529-6513

Bradyn Lorimer, 4, is the face of arthritis. Last February, while the Lorimer family was at church, Bradyn’s mother, Michelle, noticed her daughter limping. Some six weeks later, after multiple visits to diferent hospitals and specialists, the Millington family received an oicial diagnosis. Bradyn, who was 3 at the time, had juvenile idiopathic arthritis. “There have been many mornings where (Bradyn) has been unable to stand, let alone walk,” the Lorimer family shared in a media

statement. “Long baths and medicine each day provide some relief.” Bradyn’s story is one Bradyn of many Lorimer that will be shared during the Memphis Walk to Cure Arthritis on June 7. Bradyn has been named the 2014 Junior Honoree. Arthritis is a crippling disease that impacts more than 50 million adults and 300,000 children — or approximately 22 percent of the U.S. population. In Tennessee, 1.5 million adults and nearly 6,000 children have some form

of arthritis. The disease costs the U.S. economy $128 billion dollars a year, and is a more frequent cause of activity limitation than heart disease, cancer or diabetes. Funds raised through the Memphis Walk to Cure Arthritis will go toward programs, research and advocacy initiatives to help people today while inding a cure for tomorrow.

Artfully arranged Collection of art brings personal meaning to room I’ve always kept a stash of images that speak to me from magazines and blogs. If I see a photo of a room or a vignette I think is awesome, I’ll clip it out or print it and stick it in a folder or pin it to a board (real or virtual), just so I can glance at it from time to time when I need inspiration. A few years back, I started collecting pictures of gallery walls. I didn’t even realize I was doing it until I looked up one day and noticed that the grouping of images on my bulletin board had a deining theme. It was around that time that I also started collecting random pieces of artwork I found in random places. I’m not talking solely about ine art, though I buy that too, when I ind a piece I love that I can aford. I’m talking about truly quirky inds — dusty lea market art, local works from pop-up shops, thrift shop paint-by-numbers and vintage store treasures. And I came to realize that all of it has meaning, and that building an art collection is more than walking into a gallery and taking home a piece that its in your space. Memphis artist Hillary Butler collects art along with creating it, and she treats her prized pieces as she would any other type of collection. That means that along with scattering art throughout her house, she creates groupings of artwork, layering it to develop an interesting tapestry of images, colors and designs. “I personally like bookshelves,” said Butler, whose bold abstract landscapes are available on her website ( and in gallery shops in Memphis and New York. “I like to take the extra shelves out to create larger bookshelf areas to display art

— to create an ‘art scene.’ I use pieces of art as a backdrop and style it with books and accessories.” To create vignettes like this, or to create a gallery wall like the images I gathered on my own bulletin board, Butler recommends collecting works in varying sizes and styles. “Mix types of art — a painting with a piece of typography with a black-and-white photograph,” she said. “The more genres you can mix, the more interesting a collection you can have.” Also, carefully consider framing. Placing difering styles of artwork in the same or similar frames can add cohesion to a

collection — but framing pieces diferently can add interest. Figure out what works best for the pieces you’ve collected. To create a gallery wall, irst gather the pieces you’d like to display, and arrange them on a lat surface — a large table or the loor. Aim for balance and harmony, though not necessarily symmetry, and play with negative space. Once you’ve arranged the works in your collection to your liking, measure its outer dimensions, and take a photo so you remember the spacing and arrangement as you transfer it to your wall. Another, simpler way to display a grouping of art is to layer it on a shelf, a mantel or even on the loor — it’s a stylish look that’s less structured, more casual and easier to achieve than a wall collage. Said Butler: “Stack pieces of varying heights, and layer them so they overlap. You can start with a larger poster print; those are chic right now.” Here are more tips from But-

ler on starting and displaying your collection: ■ Buy what you like. I can’t say that enough, because you’ll look at it every day. ■ Decorate around your art; don’t buy your art around your décor. You want pieces that are timeless that you’ll always love. Also, don’t necessarily let color drive your art purchases. Find a way to work it into your home because good art stands alone. ■ If you don’t have a lot of money to start your collection, start with what you can aford, and present it well, and then start building on it. How you frame a piece is very important — you can take a $5 print and turn it into a piece of ine art. ■ Your home should be a unique collection that you can’t ind anywhere else. Art is a wonderful way to tell your life story. Stacey Wiedower is a Memphis-based freelance interior design writer. Contact her at


Packing, senior moving company helps make everything Good to Go By Emily Adams Keplinger Special to The Commercial Appeal

Everyone knows that packing up personal items, whether for a move, remodeling or home repairs, can be an overwhelming experience. Enter Janine Willis, president of Good to Go Home Packing and Senior Moves. She has made a business out of being in other people’s business. And her presence is welcomed. Armed with a team of up to 10 people available to work on a single move, Good To Go takes pride in attention to detail. “Good to Go ofers their services turn-key and a la carte,” Willis explained. “We allow homeowners the choice of how much or how little they would like to have done for them. Because the company has 10 people available on the team, we require little ad-

vance notice, and can accommodate most requests. Unlike traditional moving companies, we pack with the ‘unpack’ in mind. For instance, we group and label items to make the unpacking process much smoother. We even take pictures of how items were originally arranged to make it easier to set them up again. Items like the contents in china cabinets, bedside tables and desks can be put away quickly with the use of these visual guides.” If the situation involves a move, Good to Go will help the homeowner determine what to take and what to donate or pass on to others. Once that step is completed, Good to Go then begins carefully sorting and packing all items that are making the move. Tricks of the trade include color-coded labels to facilitate the sort and sift

process. Homeowners are given a set of labels to indicate which items are going to be moved and which are not. The company not only provides the labor but also brings its own packing supplies and boxes. An average job requires packing in one day, moving on the second day, and unpacking on the third day. Willis and her team will handle all of the steps, leaving the homeowners free to deal with other moving details, like reconnecting utilities and cable. “Our moving coordinators assist with unpacking on the arrival day at the new location,” Willis said. “And more than just unpacking boxes, we try to help the clients re-

ally get settled. We’re like their personal welcoming committee We ind the cofee pot and get the coffee brewing, set up lamps and lighting, and set up the bathroom and kitchen essentials. Everything right down to making the beds for the homeowners. We try to do whatever it takes to make it a comfortable irst night for the homeowners in their new abode.” And if the homeowners are moving out of town, Good to Go can still help. As a founding member of the national Association of Senior Move Managers, Willis has colleagues to partner with in various cities. When the company was founded over 13 years, it

Turkish delights

A cluster of small cafes in the Istanbul neighborhood of Karakoy lies near a small church and galleries. Istanbul ofers interesting neighborhoods to explore, like Karakoy, an up-and-coming area hemming the Bosporus Strait.

Stroll the culture of Istanbul’s many neighborhoods By Sisi Tang Associated Press


STANBUL — Istanbul, the noisy metropolis on the Bosporus Strait lauded by many a travel ranking, has much more to ofer than grand mosques and bazaars. Away from the din of typical tourist haunts, a walk around the neighborhoods of Karakoy, Balat and Kuzguncuk will peel back the surface to reveal the city’s multilayered history, and the lifestyles of those who’ve lived it. And while headlines persist on Turkey’s uneasy political situation, which included a recent government shutdown of Twitter to silence critics, protests have dwindled for now. For tourism, it’s business as usual, with the government counting 35 million people visiting last year, a 10 percent increase over the previous year. As proof of Turkey’s popularity among travelers, TripAdvisor just named the country the world’s top destination, based on the website’s ratings and user reviews. KARAKOY Descending from the Galata Tower in the Beyoglu district, often regarded as the “pulse of Istanbul,” one of the city’s steepest hills will lead to Karakoy, an up-and-coming area hemming the Bosporus Strait. This one-time industrial neighborhood is still home to a number of shops where anything from ishing equipment to Bunsen burners can be procured. But the hardware stores and workshops must now negotiate their space with new galleries and cafes that have created a hub for young hipsters. Past the Karakoy ferry terminal, one street over from the water, look for Namli Gurme, a restaurant and small marketplace ofering a large selection of “mezes,” or cold appetizers. Also served here is a cut of meat called “lokum,” which means Turkish delight and is the term for anything wildly tasty and juicy (unlike the narrower meaning of the term Turkish delight outside the country, referring only to chewy sugary candies). One of Istanbul’s busiest baklava shops is next door, known for “sutlu Nuriye” or milky Nuriye, a puier and creamier version of baklava. Farther north along the road parallel to the Bosporus, past a few deserted buildings and construction sites, a green iron gate opens into the Franciz Gecidi Is Merkezi, a small collection of cafes and restaurants. Around an easily missed corner toward the Mother Mary Turkish Orthodox church nearby is another hidden nook for cafes that are usually full on the weekends. You can wander through galleries and boutique shops punctuating rows of nondescript buildings before reaching the luxurious renovated Kilic Ali Pasha Hamam and the more widely known Istanbul Museum of Modern Art. BALAT The Balat district is a quiet historic area by the Golden Horn, the narrowest stretch of the Bosporus. Its twisting streets and weathered houses, like antiques in an open museum, echo a past occupied by waves of Jewish, Greek, Bulgarian and Armenian residents. These ethnic groups were forced out or chose to move in response to political events or socioeconomic conditions at various points in the 20th century, and the area is now home mainly to workingclass Turks from Black Sea towns and Central Anatolia. Adventurous tourists who can ind the beauty in the decaying buildings and who are willing to forgo the reliability of a map or deinitive street names, will enjoy wandering the hilly streets. Walking from the Galata Bridge by the seaside toward the end of the Golden Horn, the Gul Mosque is not to be missed. Formerly known as Saint Theodosia church, the crossin-square orthodox church was converted into a mosque by Ottomans. Farther along the spine of the horn, the Church of St. Mary of the Mongols, which has not been converted to a mosque, and St. Stephen’s Bul-


Historical Greek Orthodox high school (left) is next to a mosque in Istanbul’s Fener neighborhood. Istanbul has a number of interesting neighborhoods worth exploring, with attractions ranging from well-known landmarks like this to small shops, galleries and cafes.

“Sutlu Nuriye,” a puier and creamier version of baklava, can be found in a shop in the neighborhood of Karakoy.

Classic wood-framed mansions called “yali,” line the waterfront along the Bosporus Strait in Istanbul.

garian Church, made entirely of iron, are among the markers of the neighborhood’s mixed history. The former seat of the Ecumenical Patriarchate of Constantinople, the Church of St. George, can also be found here. A walk uphill toward the Fener quarter will reveal the Rum Lisesi (Greek Boys School), which features prominently on the Golden Horn skyline, perched at the top of a hill, drawing spectators with its lacquered, bloody red hue. Near the foot of the structure is a famous street corner, which appears in many Turkish TV series and ilms. During Ottoman times, Fener was the residential neighborhood for the dragoman, multilingual Greeks who often served as diplomatic linkages between the Ottoman Empire and its European neighbors. It was also the seat of the Greek patriarchate, and a refuge for Bulgarians, Armenians and Jews.

Restoration projects have risen up in recent years to address some of the dilapidation, seeking to turn the district into a cafe-illed boutique neighborhood of ateliers. The municipality for instance, converted a historic building into a gallery space and workshop for glass art, now called Camhane. Like many neighborhoods in Istanbul, Balat deserves a stroll before bulldozers and property developers have their way.

KUZGUNCUK On the Asia side of this continental crossroads of a city, the quiet, pictorial village of Kuzguncuk is minutes away from the Uskudar ferry terminal by “dolmus,” one of the city’s many minibuses. Kuzguncuk is not a village in the traditional sense, but a leafy residential district lined with shops and restaurants, lauded as a quieter, perhaps less jaded version of upscale Ortakoy on the European

side. It is another well-known Jewish quarter, home to two synagogues. Among the seaside ish restaurants bearing views of the Bosporus Bridge, Ismet Baba generates the most fanfare. Uryanizade Sokak, running perpendicularly from Ismet Baba and the seaside, is a restored street lined with Ottoman houses and studios for artists. Farther north, the waterside showcases a string of Istanbul’s famous classic wooden-framed mansions, known as “yali.” A bit beyond the Bosporus Bridge is Cengelkoy district, with its part of the shoreline caving in for about half a mile, showing few signs of strain. Among the most conspicuous structures of this village is the red yali named after Sa’dullah Pasha, a literary igure during the mid-1800s. Another notable feature of the waterfront, Sumahan on the Water is a boutique hotel converted from a distillery for raki, Turkey’s muchloved aperitif. Both Kuzguncuk and Cengelkoy cater to a nostalgia common among Istanbulites for a bygone era of neighborhood camaraderie and chivalry, when ine street manners were the norm against a backdrop of local shops, tea gardens and ish restaurants

Germantown brothers capture region doubles title By Pete Wickham Special to The Commercial Appeal

The boys doubles tennis inal at Monday’s AAA Sectionals at the Eldon Roark Tennis Center in Whitehaven was a taut, emotional afair as senior Thomas George and his sophomore brother Joe of Germantown High School had to rally for a 5-7, 6-2, 6-3 win over Houston High seniors Michael Hof and Robert Frederick. The decision reversed a loss to the Mustang duo in the district inals. “I had to take the middle and start attacking and take whatever happened,” Thomas George said. “We didn’t want to lose again.” The girls doubles inal will be decided today between two Houston teams at Windyke. Julia Hostetter and Hanna Wolford will play Darby Laschober and Megan Mars, who needed

a third-set tiebreaker to eliminate Austin Todd and Mallissa Sirimoungkhons of White Station. “We thought it would be fair if the girls would play fresh for the title,” Houston coach Tony Benzing said. Efficiency was the watchword for White Station standouts Kenya Jones and Sairam Gudiseva as the two Spartans easily clinched a return trip to Murfreesboro for next week’s state Class AAA tournament with sectional singles wins. Sophomore Jones, the defending state champion and the USTA Southern Region’s No. 1-ranked Girls 18s player, pitched two 6-0, 6-0 shutouts, the second against Collierville junior Claire DeGeorge in the inals. “It’s about getting through as quickly as possible,” said Jones, a 16-year-old who after

A trail camera in Texas captured this picture of a small buck that obviously objects to sharing a feeder with a gray fox.

PICTURE THIS! When using trail cameras, expect to capture the unexpected By Bryan Brasher 901-529-2343

For as little as $50, landowners and leaseholders can purchase an infrared trail camera that will snap digital pictures around the clock of anything that walks within range on their property. People use them for everything from monitoring trespassers to learning more about the big deer that might be roaming their land — and they certainly work well on both fronts. But with so many cameras hanging on trees and fence posts across the country, people often see pictures of things they really weren’t looking for. From deer ighting with raccoons, to bears, mountain lions and other critters they never knew were there, trail-camera surprises have become a common thing. “There is actually a study being conducted right now to determine just how much of the country is being monitored by trail cameras,” said Mike Whittlin of Nontypical Inc., the company that produces the popular Cuddeback Scouting Camera. “You’re talking about millions of cameras taking pictures of everything that moves. It seems kind of inevitable that people are going to get some really interesting shots from time to time.” Those who aren’t familiar with the history of trail cameras would likely be surprised to learn the irst cameras were invented during the late 1880s. National Geographic magazine published the irst trail camera photo in 1906, showing deer that had activated the camera by tripping a wire as they entered a baited trap. The irst cameras, which would take only one picture, eventually evolved to make use of motion-sensing technology that eliminated the need for primitive elements like the trip wire. By the middle of the 20th Century, cameras were using 35-milimeter ilm to snap as many as 36 photos without maintenance — and today, digital trail cameras are available that can take thousands of photos on a single data card.

WILDLIFE BEING WILD Whittlin said one thing that makes oddball trail-camera photos so common is the cameras’ ability to snap shots of unsuspecting animals in their natural environment. His company invites trailcamera owners to post their best photos online at, and site visitors are allowed to vote for their favorites each week. The winner usually has a picture of an animal doing something rarely seen with the naked eye. “Things like a hawk coming down and grabbing a squirrel from a corn pile or a deer standing with one foot on a raccoon

A Cuddeback trail camera captured this picture of a bobcat trying to get into the basket that rests on the bottom of a corn feeder. The cat is attempting to nab the squirrel hiding inside the basket.

SHOW US YOUR PHOTOS if you have a trail-camera pic that goes a little (or a lot) beyond the norm, we’d love to see it. E-mail your wild photos to brasher@commercialappeal. com or share them at facebook. com/commercialappeal. outdoors.

An Arkansas hunter arrived at his feeder to find it toppled over and immediately suspected wild hogs were to blame. But he checked his trail camera to find this buck had somehow gotten his antlers tangled in the structure and pulled it over trying to free himself.

— those are the kinds of things that seem to always win our contest,” Whittlin said. “You could sit outside for hours and hours holding a regular camera and probably never get that kind of shot. The trail camera does all of the waiting for you.” Tom Matthews and Allen Hughes, Jr., the co-owners of Memphis-based Avery Outdoors, are also dedicated land managers who use dozens of trail cameras to monitor the deer on their property. They use the cameras to identify mature bucks that are ready for harvest, even going so far as naming the deer and charting their antler growth from one year to the next. Matthews has sifted through thousands of trail-camera pics, and he has a special ile on his laptop for the weird and the wild. “I don’t know which photo is the weirdest, but I have some pretty cool stuf for sure,” Matthews said. “I have a coyote with a dead fawn in its mouth walking past several does and yearlings that are only a few yards away. I have a coyote standing right in the middle

of a bunch of turkeys at a corn feeder, and several of the turkeys are strutting.” Trail camera photos have also helped Matthews see the most interesting phases of antler evolution. “I have two photos of the same buck taken 24 hours apart showing his antlers in full velvet in the irst photo and no velvet in the second photo,” Matthews said. “Those are pretty cool, especially since he is in the exact same place and posture in both photos.”

THE WEIRD, THE WILD AND THE OUT OF THIS WORLD In addition to National Geographic-worthy wildlife photos, trail-camera owners sometimes present pics that range from disturbing to downright ridiculous. In April, Jackson County, Mississippi, residents Rainer and Edith Shattles shared a trail camera photo with local media that they believed showed a UFO shining its lights toward a deer on their property. But trail-camera experts later revealed it to be nothing more than a distorted photo of

a deer with its own glowing eyes loating above its head. Back in 2010, a Louisiana hunter made national waves with a photo of a creepy-looking igure he labeled “Hillbilly Willi” prowling near his tree stand. But the supposed “swamp monster” was debunked as Photoshop work when another of the hunter’s photos — a normal photo of a deer — was shown to have the exact same snap time, right down to the second. “You hear and see a lot of weird stuf,” Whittlin said. “I had a guy call me a little while back who said he was going to use our cameras to ind Bigfoot. You just never know what it’s going to be.” Whittlin believes the lack of trail-camera photos actually disproves the existence of certain critters, For example, thousands of sightings of large, black, predatory cats are reported in Tennessee each year. But despite the multitude of cameras being used in the state, no trailcamera photo of the infamous “black panther” has ever been veriied. “You never say never,” Whittlin said. “But you’d think with all of those cameras covering so much ground, if there were many of them running around, a good picture would eventually turn up.”

1. Batteries, plugs and wires: All of these components give the spark to your vehicle and work extra hard in the cold months. Winter stress can compromise the performance, so make sure to have these parts tested as we move into spring. 2. Brakes: It is always advisable to inspect the entire brake system after a season of snow and ice. 3. Fluid Levels: There are lots of levels to check, so make sure you don’t skip over any of them- engine oil, transmission luid, brake luid, antifreeze/coolant and windshield washer luid. 4. Suspension and Wheel Alignment: Deep potholes aren’t friendly to shocks and struts. An inspection to determine wear or leaks can help alleviate bigger issues down the road. Questions? Come to Sunrise. We’ll scan your check engine light for free!

Petrina’s parents, Jim and Joyce, still live in Germantown. His brother, Anthony Petrina, has been The Peabody’s duckmaster since 2012.
