Well-suited efort Memphis Suit Project dresses men for success By Barbara Bradley Special to the Commercial appeal

Just a few years ago Hakim Israel, 51, was living under a bridge and so covered in hair and dirt his own family wouldn’t have known him. The native Memphian and youngest of 13 children didn’t drink and was addicted to only one substance, crack cocaine, but, “It was a hell of a one to pick,” he said. Earlier this month, Israel was picking out a suit; neat, vivacious, a long way from the homeless drug addict he was before. And when he found out that he would be able to keep the suit, he threw up his hands, burst into a smile and became too emotional to speak.

Hakim Israel, a student at Southwest Tennessee Community College, said he hopes to someday wear the suit to a job interview.

Israel was among the irst groups of men to beneit from the Memphis Suit Project, a nonproit organization that collects new and gently worn suits, many from Memphis

professionals, to give to men who need them for job and college interviews, for returning veterans getting back into the workplace, and others. Each suit is custom-itted to the individual and, to further boost his selfconidence, his name is embroidered on the inside of the jacket. Israel and 11 other men, most of them younger, came via HopeWorks and the Leadership Empowerment Center to the oices of custom clothier Tom James of Memphis recently, where they were measured for suits selected from a collection of about 150 in conservative pinstripes, checks and solids. Memphis Suit Project was founded by Justin K. Thomas, a family lawyer; Jay Lawler, branch manager of Tom James Memphis; and Will Moore, a certiied inancial planner.

In the News GERMANTOWN

City’s red-light camera study gets green light By Jennifer Pignolet pignolet@commercialappeal.com 901-529-2372

Germantown is spending $30,100 on an engineering study to determine if the city’s redlight cameras should be reactivated, moved to other locations or removed altogether. City Administrator Patrick Lawton said the city’s contract with the vendor expired in 2012, and it was not renewed while heavy construction was being done at Poplar Avenue and

Germantown Road and Germantown and Wolf River Boulevard, two of the three intersections with cameras. The other is Poplar and West Farmington Boulevard. Lawton said the state requires an engineering study be done before the installation of a new system to determine if cameras are necessary at an intersection to lower accident rates. The criteria for where cameras can be installed has changed since Germantown’s went up 12 years ago.

Police report

The money for the study will come from previous revenues from red-light camera tickets. For iscal year 2012, Lawton said, the city brought in about $255,000, and that was during a year when all three intersections’ cameras were not always running at the same time. At $50 a ticket, Lawton said projections are for $250,000 to $300,000 in revenue. The program costs about $113,000 for the vendor, plus personnel time. The city also pays a police

oicer to review the footage from each red-light ticket to determine if it really warrants a citation. Lawton said the city has invited people to come to City Hall to see the footage of their incidents when they argue against the ticket. The funds generated from the program go back into paying for itself or to educational purposes. The money pays for the city’s Alive at 25 program that teaches ninth-grade students at Germantown and Houston High Schools about driver safety and the

consequences of accidents and breaking the law. “We’ve always tried to have a model program in place that is designed to correct driver behavior,” Lawton said. “That’s why the dollars that are generated go right back into the fund.” Police Chief Richard Hall said if the cameras are reactivated, it would be several months before the program is up and running. The engineering study alone will take months as it will examine up to 35 intersections in the city.

Feeling good about whatever you did Friday to express your Valentine’s love for a loved one? Whatever you did, Bob Cannon did more. “It’s a busy time of year for me, but I love it,” said Bob, 77, who worked in the business oice of Memphis City Schools for the better part of 30 years. Bob spent the better part of the two days delivering valentines to 13 women. That’s not including his wife, daughters and daughter-inlaw, who also got Bob’s valentines. They all ind out about each other eventually. None of them minds. Even Bob’s wife Karen knows. She has objected only once. “Initially, Bob bought his candy gifts all from Dinstuhl’s, until his frugal wife noticed a $300 candy charge on the credit card statement,” Karen Cannon said. “I told Bob, ‘You’re got to love your little Valentine’s ladies a little cheaper.’” Karen buys the candy now. She also buys the balloons and assembles each package. Bob writes his own love notes and makes the deliveries. “This is Bob’s ministry, but I’m happy to help,” Karen said. “The candy isn’t the gift they love the

from 1 grown in its six years and has earned more sponsorships from around the city. The race brings out a diverse crowd of genders, races and people of diferent ages and itness levels. Some people walk, some run and others do a combination of both. Some participate alone, others with friends or co-workers. And still, some go as a family. Don McGrew, 45, ran with wife Melissa McGrew, 33, and father-inlaw Doug Goslin, 65. The McGrews live in Bartlett and have run the race for ive years and Goslin has run the race for three years. They all decided to take up running when they gave up smoking. “We had to do something for ourselves,” Don McGrew said. He likes 5k races because, “they’re short, it’s over with quick and there’s always a cold beer at the inish line.” Goslin, who won second

most. It’s Bob’s visits. He has all the time in the world. He sits and talks with them about their lives and their late husbands. He wants them to feel like their husbands are there with them.” Bob’s Valentine’s ladies are widows — all friends or neighbors or fellow Lindenwood Christian Church members who otherwise would be alone on Valentine’s Day. “When Bob showed up at my door the irst time, oh, Lord, it was the cutest thing I’ve ever seen,” said Dorthy Bruce, a Lindenwood member who’s been on Bob’s list since 2012. Her husband Leroy, who worked at the U.S. Defense Depot, died in 2011 at age 87. “It was the sweetest gesture. And when he gave me the valentine and said it was from him and from Leroy, I almost cried.” Bob signs all of his cards that way. The husband’s name goes irst, then Bob’s. Gloria Love, a neighbor, has been on Bob’s list since her husband Charles, once the sports editor for The Commercial Appeal, died in 2004 at age 76. “Every day with Charlie was Valentine’s Day,” Gloria said. “I miss him so. It’s very thoughtful for Bob to do this for widows like me who might be a bit lonely on that day.” Jane Eveland has been on Bob’s list since 2005. Her husband, Ro-

place in his age group, said he chose the healthier lifestyle because he wants to be around for his grandchildren, who attended the race Saturday but are expected to join in a few years. The irst-place male 5k runner was Paul Hill, 24, with a time of 16 minutes and 51 seconds. The female 5k winner was 13-year-old Ella Baran, of Germantown, with a time of 20 minutes and 13 seconds. The irst-place male 10k runner was 36-year-old Olaf Schulz, of Lakeland, with a time of 35 minutes and 42 seconds. The female 10k winner was 34-year-old Jamie Turner, with a time of 42 minutes and seven seconds. Each received $150 in addition to their awards. Dawn Weber, a Blue Cross Blue Shield employee who volunteered to hand water to participants, said she enjoys rooting for all the participants because it’s a feat “just for someone to get out and tackle something like this.”

land, former Treadwell High principal, died in 2004 at age 75. “He still sometimes surprises me,” Eveland said. “I forget what day it is, then I see Bob’s car pull up in the back of my house and I remember it’s Valentine’s Day.” Bob’s list changes almost every year. Some women get remarried or pass on. Others are added. Betty and Tammy are new this year. Mattie ‘Mac’ Hury was the irst woman on the list. Her husband, Rev. Henry Hury, who was pastor of Central Christian Church, died about a month before Valentine’s Day in 1995. They had been married for 55 years. “No couple was more in love than they were,” Karen said. “When Henry died, Bob decided to take Mackie — that’s what we call her — a valentine signed from Henry. It was so sweet.” Bob delivered Mackie’s valentine on Feb. 10. She’s always irst. “For sentimental reasons,” Bob explained. “It’s a fun day. Well, a fun week really,” said Bob. “I get a lot of smiles and a lot of big old hugs.” Does Karen ever get jealous? “No,” Karen said with a laugh. “We’ve been married for 40 years. No one else would put up with this mess.” “I’ve got ’em waiting in line, baby,” Bob tells his true valentine.

their condition. Generally they must shop thrift stores for items of varying quality that usually don’t it. Thomas, a customer of Lawler’s at Tom James, and Lawler hatched the idea, which is modeled after the successful St. Louis Suit Project, which Lawler’s brother, who also works for Tom James, helped create. “The suits we are getting are high end,” said Thomas, many collected from lawyers, Tom James customers, and people in the inancial industry. A judge in Virginia heard about the project and mailed a suit and two ties. Among the irst to be outitted were two young men from the Boys & Girls Club of Memphis, one in college and another a high school graduate seeking a job, he said. Thomas appeared with them on the November cover of Memphis Lawyer Magazine “and they looked better than I did,” he said. “It was neat when they got the suits,” he said. “You could see the pride coming across them. They were beaming and poking their chests out. A suit makes you feel like a million dollars.” Justin said the Suit Project collects suits, blazers and pants, shirts and ties. Monetary donations are needed to pay for the tailoring, and occasionally to buy new suits. The organizers take no money, he said. People may e-mail the organization at memphissuitproject.com and arrange to drop of a donation. Among those being fitted on this day was Kenneth Douglas, 20, a sophomore at Lane College in Jackson, Tenn. He is studying business management but hopes one day to work with kids perhaps as a counselor at the same place that helped him: the Leadership Empowerment Center, a faith-based organization serving youths in the Frayser area. Jerome Oliver, 27, came to HopeWorks formerly incarcerated, with no job experience, barely speaking to anyone. HopeWorks offers a 13-week, faith-based, holistic program aimed at the chronically unemployed. He earned his GED and got a job with a pest control company where he has been for a year.

Robots simply part of scenery with school’s AP, honor classes By Erinn Figg Special to The Commercial Appeal

On Feb. 13, a massive meeting of the minds took place in the Collierville High School gym. Amid more than two dozen tables showcasing sophisticated academic projects, people of all ages gathered to share ideas and discuss the future. On one table, a skeleton grinned at visitors; on another, a miniature roller-coaster waited for someone to set it in motion. Meanwhile, a live orchestra played classical music in the background. Occasionally, a robot cruised the room. Although the setting may sound slightly surreal, particularly for a high school gym, it’s a very normal occurrence for the students and teachers at CHS. For at least a decade, CHS has hosted this annual AP and Honors Fair, an opportunity to introduce local incoming freshmen and existing CHS students to available Advanced Placement and honor courses. “It’s unbelievably impressive. It’s refreshing and encouraging to see the involvement of these students and the teachers who are so supportive of them,”

said Collierville Schools Supt. John Aitken. “When students are riding robots around and showing of all their diferent exhibits and performing their music for you, it’s what high school and education should be all about: just seeing kids succeeding.” AP courses are designed to prepare students to take the College Boardsponsored Advanced Placement exam. Honor courses are developed locally by teachers to meet the educational needs of accelerated students. Currently, CHS ofers 34 honor classes and 25 AP classes, most of which were represented at the fair’s 27 tables. During the 3 to 6 p.m. event, attendees had the opportunity to stop at the tables that interested them and interact with the teachers and students involved in those courses. “It’s fun to see students promoting the classes they’re taking and talking with other students about what they’ve learned and what to expect in the course,” said Carolyn Comella, director of college advising. Comella said the AP and honor classes have evolved signiicantly since she started working at the school in the early 1990s,

Collierville and Germantown school oicials on Feb. 11 entered into another round of negotiations about nonresident students, but no agreement was announced at a meeting of Collierville’s school board. Germantown wants either parents or the Collierville school district to pay “a nonresident fee” for the 1,050 Collierville students who are in Germantown schools now. About 65 parents, teachers and students attended Collierville’s school board meeting hoping for a resolution to the issue. “We are working behind

the scenes. We’ve heard you. We’re listening. Just be patient with us,” school board chairman Mark Hansen told them. Hansen said Germantown hadn’t set a fee amount, but has indicated it would consider waiving the fee for the irst year of an agreement. “They haven’t quantiied or justiied what the nonresident fee would be,” Hansen said, adding that $400 per student was one amount he had heard. Collierville wants to work out a trade of sorts, ofering to allow Germantown to house buses on a lot that can hold up to 90 vehicles and to use its taxfree fuel pumps behind Collierville Elementary. “We’re going to work

becoming more hands-on and multidimensional. “Mainly it’s evolved because our students have evolved. They’re becoming brighter and brighter. They’re competitive among themselves. They’re motivated,” Comella said. “When you have willing students and excellent faculty members and a supportive community, those three things together are a winning combination. And on the same hand, we have many excellent activities for students who aren’t at the AP and honors level, and we have one of the best special education departments in the county.”

it out,” Collierville Supt. John Aitken said after the meeting. Aitken expects a decision will soon be reached between the two new municipal school districts. Regarding possible nonresident fees, one another Collierville parent, mom, Linda McNeil, said she wants to know what such a fee would cover. “We are all just waiting for answers,” said Collierville parent Beth Kobasic, who has a daughter at Houston High and two sons who had planned to go to Houston Middle. A l ready, Yola nda Mathews said, her daughter drives past Collierville High to get to Houston High. “We need to know,” she said.

STUDENT SPOTLIGHT

After the catered dinner, the 40th anniversary celebration at Briarcrest continued in the school’s new Dr. Willard R. Sparks Chapel and Performing Arts Center.

Students, teachers, staf celebrate 40 years at Briarcrest By Beth Rooks Special to The Weekly

On Feb. 1, Briarcrest Christian School celebrated its 40th anniversary in the Sparks Chapel at the Houston Levee campus. More than 550 alumni, parents, students, current and former faculty and board members attended the celebration. The entertainment during the catered dinner in the high school was pro-

vided by SoundScape, the high school jazz and commercial music ensemble. Following dinner, a program was held in the recently opened state-of-the-art Dr. Willard R.

Home & Garden

Experts share their ‘happy places’ for hunkering down, relaxing It’s been a cold couple of months in Memphis, and I don’t know about you, but all I really want to do at the end of a long day is snuggle up in a warm spot and relax. To me, relaxing means curling up with a good book and time on my hands, and my favorite place to do it is an overstufed chair in the corner of my living room, beneath a reading lamp, beside the fireplace with a snugly blanket that’s always waiting for me. Everybody should have a spot in his or her own home to hunker down when the outside world seems harsh.

STACEY WIEDOWER INSIDE DESIGN

For some people it’s a studio to paint in, for others a comfy spot to watch movies, for others a quiet room with a yoga mat. I think spaces like this are important to quality of life for every family member, at every age. When space is an issue, a corner of a room can suice — as my 7-year-old son could say

about the basketball goal that hangs over a door in our kitchen. It’s in the hub of the house where chaos abounds, but to him, it’s 5 feet of dribbling, shooting bliss. And it’s all his. If you haven’t put thought into your own home’s relaxation areas, do it. Think about how you or your family members use the space, what’s good about it and what’s lacking, and how you can make it as functional and satisfying as possible. I’ve talked to some local design experts to ind out about their “happy places,” and their responses not only inspire me — they

As a bonus, it gives me an excuse to shop

Mayeaux, who attended the Kitchen and Bath Industry Show last week in Las Vegas, said manufacturers today are touting products and appliances that are energy-eicient, spacesaving and low-maintenance. Mayeaux, too, is seeing an increase in the popularity of quartz and solid-surface countertop materials. But, she said, homeowners still want the look of natural stone. “The biggest thing I noticed

at the (Kitchen and Bath Industry Show) were how many of the solid surfaces had more of an organic look,” she said. “Instead of conservative patterns, they’re bringing in very bold, swirly patterns — almost an artwork feel in the countertops. Many of them mimic natural stones, granite.” Granite remains popular in Mid-South kitchens, Miles Russell said. But she’s also seen an increase in requests for white marble. “People love the look of white

GARDEN TIPS

This kitchen, designed by Lisa Miles Russell of LM Designs, illustrates several hot trends in kitchen design: crisp painted cabinetry, contrast in colors and finishes, and a statement light fixture above the center island.

Victoria Saig, owner of Interiors by Victoria: “I

BOOKER LEIGH

Light, bright, white are latest buzzwords in kitchen design or years — decades, even — Pat Krause hated her kitchen. “I had a paneled kitchen and paneled walls in the den,” said Krause, whose Germantown house was built in 1970. “And I wanted a light kitchen. I wanted everything fresh.” She’s not alone. Today’s hottest kitchens are light, clean and open, with ample lighting and painted cabinetry in crisp whites, creams and grays. It’s a big change from the dark stains and dim ixtures that characterized this room in decades past. “Now it’s just so clean, and it’s a much diferent feeling,” said Lisa Miles Russell, a certiied kitchen designer with LM Designs. “It’s a lighter, happier feeling. Even if you’re not increasing your square footage, it feels bigger and brighter when you renovate and do all these things.” Krause worked with Carol Jameson, a certified master kitchen and bath designer with Premier Countertops and More in Olive Branch, to turn her kitchen from 1970s brown and avocado to 2010s white and bright. “It was so dated and so nonfunctional — and it was so dark,” Jameson said of Krause’s space. “She wanted to open it up, to make it more user-friendly. So that’s what we did. Soits came down, wallpaper came down, and we got rid of all the contrasting elements.” In their place, Krause chose white-painted cabinetry that extends to the ceiling, maximizing storage space. She also installed new lighting, new appliances, Cambria quartz countertops, a mosaic tile backsplash, ceramic tile looring and fresh paint. Along with lighter colors and an open, airy feel, homeowners these days want kitchens that are low-maintenance. “People are so tired of having to worry about bacteria and staining in their countertops, and so they’re going toward quartz,” Jameson said. “Quartz is already big, it’s already got a lot of momentum, but it’s going to be even bigger in the next year.” Eiciency, in general, is a big buzzword in kitchens, added Maureen Mayeaux, an inte-

marble,” she said. “But practically speaking, it’s not the best for a kitchen. I’ve done several baths and kitchens where we’ve used a quartz that looks like Carrara marble, but you get the durability of quartz, which is far better than a marble.” White and light countertops follow one of two major trends Miles Russell is seeing in kitchen color palettes. Homeowners these days either want “all soft neutrals, tone on tone,” or they want high contrast, she said. Style-wise, homeowners are embracing a blend of traditional and contemporary elements. Think traditional cabinets and a farmhouse sink blended with industrial lighting and stainless steel. As for lighting, recessed, undercabinet and pendant lighting are all popular picks among consumers. However, Mayeaux has encountered more homeowners who are willing to make a bold statement with kitchen lighting. “I think people are inally gravitating to adorning spaces with lighting, because there are so many choices,” she said. “Instead of lining up can lights, now it’s being done with one really unique piece that becomes a conversation piece in the space. You can really transform a space just by changing the color and changing a light ixture.”

In the last week, we had several calls from homeowners concerned about their azaleas and this cold weather. Azaleas are a relatively low maintenance lowering shrub that produces a beautiful show of color each spring. But if they are not planted right or planted in the wrong location, they can be afected by the cold weather. Cold weather can damage the lower buds, the outer layer of the bark and could cause the stem to split just above the ground. The damage normally shows up in the spring when the weather begins to warm up. The roots are more sensitive to cold weather, because they are shallow root plants, just under the soil. Here are some ways to help protect your azaleas from cold weather: ■ Adding mulch around your azaleas can protect the roots from cold weather. ■ Make sure your azaleas have good drainage; standing water can damage the roots and cause the plant to die. ■ Make sure they are planted at the right depth. If your azaleas are healthier, they will have a better chance to make it through the winter. Regarding other small shrubs, it’s too early to tell whether the recent cold weather injured them. Healthy plants are better able to tolerate low temperatures than those under stress from disease and insects. Cold injury most often occurs when the temperature drops from warm to freezing within 24 hours. Wait until spring before you try to remedy any cold-induced problem, particularly when it comes to pruning, unless the limbs are in danger of falling. Booker T.

Memphis fitness group harnesses power of social media to gain followers, shed thousands of pounds

Specialist helps fight childhood obesity By Sara P. Shirley patterson@commercialappeal.com 901-529-6513

Toye Bogard leads a workout at the McFarland Community Center. Driven by Memphis’ high obesity numbers, Bogard created a Facebook group called Biggest Loser Memphis two years ago. The group now has 6,400 members.

FIT NATION By Sara P. Shirley patterson@commercialappeal.com 901-529-6513

Two years ago, Toye Bogard was sitting in the barber’s chair when the news lashed on the screen. Memphis had been proclaimed the fattest city in the nation. “This is my city, and I’m sitting here thinking, ‘What can I do to help?’” Bogard recalled. Driven by Memphis’ high obesity numbers, Bogard took to Facebook and asked everyone he knew if they’d like to begin working out together. He created a Facebook group called Biggest Loser Memphis (no ailiation to the show) and fans began joining the group in droves. Bogard started teaching classes to members, and as the numbers escalated, he divided members into teams. The teams were based on where each person lived. Each team had a registered nurse as a captain, and the members began meeting in their own neighborhoods to workout, weigh in and motivate one another. Some 6,000 members later, Bogard is preparing the group for the ilming of a itness DVD that will be distributed in Walmart stores. “My idea was to build a support network, to help people build relationships,” said Bogard. “And it just took of. We have 6,400 members now. It’s crazy.” Around 150 people showed up to a itness class Bogard held at the McFarland Community Center on a recent Wednesday night. Bogard had just launched a new “90-day” challenge for members, asking them to push themselves to the limit in order to reap the rewards in time for ilming. Bogard’s group is free to join, as are the classes he teaches. New members mix with Fit Na-

tion veterans in the group classes, and everyone wears their “team” colors when they come together for a group workout. Bogard’s class is an upbeat aerobic session. Members bring yoga mats and use free weights, but that is the only equipment needed. Hip-hop jams blare through gymnasium speakers during the hourlong workout and many of Bogard’s moves look as though they were lifted straight from the nightclub. The group has members of all ages and itness levels. They turn to Facebook between classes to brag on one another and show support for their teammates. The group’s Biggest Loser program has yielded hundreds of major weight loss winners. Take Angela Brown, 35, who joined Fit Nation after discovering she had Type 2 diabetes. In two years, Brown has lost 73 pounds. She shares her story with other members via social media.

Then there’s Clara Easley, 48, who was one of the irst Fit Nation team captains. Since September 2011, the Horn Lake resident has lost 90 pounds. Her current weight is 175, the smallest that Easley says she has ever been. “My kids are so proud of me, they’re jealous,” Easley said. “My team holds me accountable and I don’t think they even know it. Being put in a leadership role meant I had to show my team that I could do this.” Taurus Turner, 35, lost 85 pounds after joining. He dropped from 320 pounds to 235. He credits his team captain, Jackie Hardy, for his success. “Once I got to college, weight just jumped on me,” Turner said. “This was the kick start I needed. I want to lose another 20 pounds, and I’ll keep at it until I get there. Then, I’ll work on toning up. You learn to just keep challenging yourself, so it never ends.”

Good Health Memphis

Obesity has more than doubled in children and tripled in adolescents in the last 30 years, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention. The health problems associated with childhood obesity are wide-ranging, from high cholesterol and blood pressure to prediabetes to bone and joint problems to sleep apnea. Long-term effects include an in- Joan creased risk Han for heart disease, Type 2 diabetes, osteoarthritis and several types of cancer. “Childhood obesity has been a rising problem in the U.S. for the last two decades,” said Dr. Joan Han, a pediatric endocrinologist who studies rare disorders associated with childhood obesity at the National Institutes of Health. “The good news is that the numbers are starting to level of. The bad news is that we’re at a plateau — not trending down — and among the very seriously obese, those numbers are rising.” Han, a Harvard Medical School graduate, is moving to Memphis this summer to tackle the problem head on. She’ll join a team at LeBonheur Children’s Hospital dedicated to treating obesity with multi-pronged, evidence-and researchbased approaches. In a study conducted in Memphis among a collection of patients who received free health screenings, 27 percent of the children screened met the criteria for obesity. The national average is 17 percent, said Han. “This study may suggest that in pockets of Memphis, there is a really high rate of childhood obesity,” said Han. “LeBonheur is very interested in establishing a state of the art, multidisciplinary clinic.” The clinic would include specialized treatment from physicians, psychologists, cardiologists, dietitians, social workers when needed, exercise physiologists, and other sub-specialists. “We’re seeing more and more that genetics is playing a role in obesity,” said Han. “If you can understand what is wrong, then you can have prevention and treatment strategized around that. Perhaps obesity treatment isn’t one size its all.”

And there are good reasons why you should wish to keep up with these Joneses, as karate is an excellent form of exercise that trains both body and mind. At the same time, its practical nature allows parents to punch through their lame justiications like “I don’t have time to exercise.” I’ve read numerous surveys of the reasons people provide for not exercising, and “I don’t have time” always takes the No. 1 spot. Karate chops that excuse in two, because it’s something that can be done as a family. Parents often complain they want to spend more time with their children. At the same time, I hear them complain about having to regularly engage in taxi duty to take said children to their various lessons and games. You’re probably not allowed to join your kids’ Pee Wee football or ield hockey team. Instead, you’re in the stands watching practice, and possibly consuming some unhealthy junk food. But karate, a millennia-old martial art, is increasingly catering to families so you can all exercise together. Beyond the time-management aspect, it gives you that quality time you’ve been seeking. “The demographics have changed,” said Jones, who has been a karate instructor for 35 years. “What used to be a young, maleoriented activity is now far more

When an area in which they’ve been playing needs to be picked up and straightened, the 8-yearold always ends up doing all the work. The other two continue to play or just pretend to be helping. The oldest complains that it’s not fair and he’s right. What can I do to insure that they all do their share? very common A This problem is the reCANDICE WARD/CHICAGO TRIBUNE

inclusive. I have so many families training with me. Usually it’s the children who’ve started irst, and they loved it, and then the parents get involved.” And sometimes, even grandparents. “We had always planned for our kids doing a sport of some sort,” said 46-year-old Craig Fallis. “We tried soccer and baseball, and there wasn’t much interest there, so we tried karate and it stuck.” Fallis, a project manager who has been practicing karate for almost seven years, joined his dojo just a few months after he put his son in it (and his daughter joined not long after). He said having an organized, scheduled regimen was a powerful motivator for him. “It gives you a personal commitment to go; there are no excuses.” Fallis is just one level away from achieving his black belt. “It’s been great for bringing our family together,” he told me. “We’ve deinitely bonded over karate and working on goals together, like preparing for tournaments

and belt gradings.” Beyond that, Fallis said that the increase in core strength has done wonders for his back problems, and he’s noticed rapidly improved hand-eye coordination. Jones explained that you can have a class with a wide range of individuals who all work at their own pace and gain a variety of beneits from it. And the beneits go beyond what you may realize. “It’s certainly going to make you stronger,” Jones told me. “It is good for lexibility and range of motion, as well as great for balance. It’s all very functional movement. You’re able to use your body in a much more eicient manner, and you develop great core strength.” Karate does have a lot of staying power, and working toward a higher belt level is only part of the motivation. “One motivation is because of the people you’re practicing with,” Jones said. “My whole social life is geared around the people I’ve met in karate.”

sult of parents who think children are adults. One aspect of emotional adulthood (not to be confused with chronological adulthood), is the understanding that cooperation with others is usually necessary to accomplishing anything of value and, furthermore, that cooperation results in short- and long-term beneit to all concerned. Children are not adults. When siblings are assigned to the same task, it’s typical that one or two siblings will do as little as possible while one — usually the oldest — does all the work. That’s human nature, which is fundamentally irresponsible and always looking for the easy way out. The solution to this problem is to rotate tasks among the kids. Picking up the playroom is a good example. The irst time it needs to be picked up, assign it to the oldest child. Send the other two kids elsewhere. The second time, assign it to the middle child. The youngest performs the next clean-

ing and then it’s back to the oldest. Voilà! The job gets done and none of them complains that “it’s not fair!” Or, they all complain, which, after all, is only fair.

I have a follow-up quesQ tion. Let’s say it’s the

middle child’s turn and he holds everyone up by dawdling. What should I do?

an equally simA Iplehavesolution; further-

more, I’ve never heard of it failing. If a child plods through a task, taking, say, 30 minutes to do what can easily be done in ive or 10 minutes, simply go in, pleasantly dismiss him (as if nothing is wrong), and do the job yourself. Then, that evening, send him to bed immediately after dinner. It’s important that you not warn him of this in advance or threaten him with it; simply do it. When he gets over his shock and awe and asks why he has to go to bed so early, tell him that his inability to do the earlier task in a timely fashion tells you he’s not getting enough sleep, so, you’re going to help him with his sleep problem. Then next time the playroom needs picking up, assign it to him again. When he points out that it’s a sibling’s turn, tell him that it is his turn until he does it quickly and properly. When he cries out that it’s not fair, simply say, “I completely agree,” and walk away. My experience has been that two doses of that will cure the problem.

A GOOD CALL

Houston girls pull upset, win district By Pete Wickham

Collierville native Hensley on field with U.S. Paralympic National Soccer Team

Special to The Weekly

By Marlon W. Morgan morgan@commercialappeal.com 901-529-2792

Kevin Hensley heard someone from U.S. Soccer was trying to get in touch with him. While at a local grocery store last month with a friend, Hensley got a call on his cellphone from Stuart Sharp, who was recently named head coach of the U.S. Paralympic National Soccer Team. Sharp told the Collierville native that he wanted him to come to California to train with the national team, which is preparing to participate in the 2016 Paralympics in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. “I missed playing so much and then out of the blue, I get a call from the national team,� said Hensley, 21, who is an assistant coach with the Mid-South Football Club. “That’s pretty incredible.� To participate on the U.S. Paralympic team, players must be ambulatory and have a physical challenge from diagnosis of cerebral palsy or from having a stroke or traumatic brain injury. The game features seven players and is played on a shorter ield. Sharp had been scouring the Internet looking for players to ill out his roster when he came across an old ESPN article on Hensley. Hensley was a 14-year-old rising soccer player in 2006. On Dec. 23 that year, he went to a Collierville park with his girlfriend, and her parents dropped him of afterward at home. When he walked into the house, Hensley collapsed on the loor. He remained there, in and out of consciousness, until his parents returned from Christmas shopping. Hensley was known as a jokester, so they initially thought he was pulling a prank. When they realized he wasn’t, they rushed him to the hospital. He had already sufered right-side paralysis. Hensley spent two days in the intensive care unit. After several days of tests, his neurologist saw something on a CT scan that appeared to be a hemorrhage in his neck that broke of and clogged an artery, which led to a stroke. Remarkably, Hensley was back in school after

Christmas and went on to play soccer for four years at Collierville. But the stroke afected his memory. Hensley was in Memphis this week after playing some exhibition games with the national team. For his parents, Randy and Donna, it was the irst time they missed one of Kevin’s irsts in soccer. “We saw his irst college game,� Randy said. “We saw his irst high school game. We saw his irst club game. It was kind of hard sitting at home watching the results come across Twitter.� Should the U.S. team qualify for the Paralympics, the Hensleys are already making plans to be there. In the meantime, Kevin is enjoying his unexpected opportunity. “It’s been a blast,� he said.

Will Hudgins igured he was just along for the ride. What a ride it was. With girls basketball coach/athletic director Chad Becker away because of a family illness, Houston’s football coach illed in and helped guide the Mustangs to a District 15AAA tournament title run, capped by a 43-42 upset over Ridgeway last Saturday night at Wooddale. “I had the easiest job of all. Just had to make sure the girls got there on time, and were wearing the right uniforms,� said Hudgins after Houston bettered its record to 21-3. They reversed two close regularseason losses to the Roadrunners (26-2), and did so with grinding defense. Houston allowed Kirby, Germantown and Ridgeway just 42 points a game during the tournament, and in the inal quarter of the championship game outscored Ridgeway 12-4 for the victory. Senior Marisa Knox hit a game-tying layup with 50 seconds to play, and after a Ridgeway miss senior Cheridan Burroughs was fouled and hit a pair of free throws to make it a 43-41 game. The Roadrunners, ranked second in The Commercial Appeal’s Dandy Dozen and seventh in the state Class AAA rankings, could only answer with one free throw. “We were down but we just kept plugging,�

Hudgins said. “The seniors were poised and in the moment. They accepted the challenged and took full advantage. You could get a little sense of urgency on their part. This was their last opportunity to win a championship and they took full advantage.� Sophomore Jaida Roper, who averaged a team-leading 16.3 points per game in the tournament, had 14 in the inale while Providence signee Aysha Harris added nine. Region 8 play begins Friday night. Houston will be at home against the loser of Tuesday’s CentralOverton consolation game. The regional semiinals and inals will be at Central. Germantown (15-12) edged Collierville 55-53 in the third place game behind 18 points from Brittany Cowens. The two teams will be on the road Friday against White Station or Hamilton, who played Wednesday for the District 16 title. In the District 15-AAA boys consolation game Saturday, Germantown (19-8) scored a 70-66 win over Houston (23-8), with four Red Devils in double igures, led by sophomore Darrell Brown’s 15 points. Houston senior Jerry Johnson Jr. led the Mustangs with 26. Both will be on the road for Region 8 quarterinal games on Friday. In the championship, defending state Class AAA champion Southwind handled Ridgeway, 60-46.

St. George’s Independent School senior, Mia Bargiacchi, celebrated her intent to compete in gymnastics for the University of Arkansas Razorbacks next year in a celebration on Jan. 23, which was attended by family, friends and school administrators. During the celebration, Mia’s coach, Melissa Smith, referenced the many achievements Mia has accomplished over the years. “Mia is the most determined, aggressive and overall team oriented athlete that I have ever had the privilege to coach,” Smith said. “I am so proud of how she overcame hardships and conquered her goals to make her dream

come true, becoming an Arkansas Razorback gymnast!” “What I ind most remarkable about Mia, aside from her incomparable work ethic, is her sense of self. It is rare for an 18 year old to have the strength of character that Mia does. To sacriice football games and school events and movies with friends, knowing that you’re working toward an ultimate goal, takes a special kind of young woman,” said Mia’s adviser Beverly Brooks, associate director of college guidance. Mia is looking forward to joining the Razorbacks team as this has been a dream for her since elementary school. “I’m very excited to compete on the collegiate level and work in such a

schoolwork can be daunting, but not for Mia. “St. George’s has prepared me academically

and mentally for a collegelevel workload at Arkansas,” she said. “Over the years I have learned how

to balance my training with the classes I take at St. George’s, and I know that I will be prepared to do so when I get to Arkansas.” Last year Mia placed sixth on the vault, eighth on the loor and 10th all around at Level 10 Regionals. With such impressive scores she quickly advanced to Nationals. At Nationals, Mia placed ifth on the beam and ninth all around. This year, Mia is already of to a great start. She has only had two competitions so far and has already earned three individual event titles, one second place all around inish and one irst place all around inish. Sarah Cowan is the director of communications for St. George’s Independent School.

After a year in which he was dogged by injuries, it was a sweet ending for Elijah Oliver. The Christian Brothers junior added the third state championship of his career Saturday in Franklin, scoring a 22-7 technical fall victory over Ethan Dendy of Chattanooga McCallie in the Division 2 120-pound inal. Oliver’s win adds to the 106- and 113-pound titles he won as a freshman and sophomore. “This one was better,� he said. “The irst two years I was more nervous going into the inal, but this year I went in more relaxed and my ofense was better.� Oliver sufered a concussion during a tournament in Kansas City in late December that kept him out for about a month. And no sooner did he return than he sprained an ankle. But all that was forgotten Saturday as he easily handled Dendy to end the year with a 32-0 record. He was also named the tournament’s most outstanding wrestler.

Christian Brothers also claimed the championship in the 285-pound class as seElijah nior D.J. PalOliver more edged Madison Malone of Briarcrest, 3-2, in an all-Memphis inal. “I don’t think it’s really hit me yet,� said Palmore, who will play football at Navy next year.

St. Benedict also had several medalists, led by third-place inishes from Ronson Marsh at 132 and Logan Reid at 195. In the team competition, CBHS, which became the irst West Tennessee team to win the championship in 2013, placed ifth with 137 points.

Many French people may have forgotten sacriices for their freedom, but scenes and memorials remember By Beverly Cruthirds Special to The Commercial Appeal

M

yth: French people are especially fond of Americans, remembering with gratitude the role we played in liberating them from the Germans not once, but twice. Many World War II memorials, in fact, end their grateful narratives with the words “We will not forget!” Fact: They have forgotten. But by very unscientiic observation, I have concluded it’s not just Americans that the French don’t like — it’s pretty much all foreigners.

Despite that, a trip to France is a worthwhile and enjoyable way to spend several weeks soaking up its incredibly rich history and culture. And we did encounter natives who were charming, helpful and welcoming, so the notion that ALL French people are rude and unfriendly is also a myth. My husband, William Fones, and I are both history nerds and are especially fascinated by the World War II era, so we had long looked forward to immersing ourselves in the history that is around every corner in Normandy. After spending several days sampling the châteaux and wines of the Loire Valley and a whole day in the otherworldly wonder that is Mont Saint-Michel, we at last arrived in Bayeux, which would serve as our base of touring Normandy. We had planned in advance for a combination of a guided tour with time spent on our own to roam. On our irst full day there, we drove to the coastal town of Arromanches, which is notable as the site of the “impossible” temporary harbor built in less than two weeks by the Allies immediately after the D-Day landing. Most of it is gone now, some 70 years after the war, but a few of the harbor structures are still visible. Knowing that the Allies would have to have a means of supplying an invasion force, the Germans had focused their attention on the existing harbors closer to the English coast as the most likely place for the anticipated landings. This logistical problem certainly gave the Allies pause, and it took them a while to igure out a way to circumvent it: they would create a new, entirely artiicial harbor, built in a matter of days strictly for the purpose of delivering reinforcements, food, ammunition, vehicles and other needed supplies to the American, Canadian and British forces that swarmed ashore on D-Day. This plan essentially meant the landing could be planned for anywhere along the Normandy coast, thereby taking the Germans by surprise. The building of the artiicial harbor was accomplished in an amazing feat of engineering, with scrapped ships scuttled on the perimeter to establish the foundation, followed by huge structures nicknamed “mulberries,”

which were constructed in England, then towed across the channel and fastened into place atop the sunken ships to form the harbor breakwater. Inside the shelter of the mulberries, a network of roadways attached to pontoons, stretching from the landing docks to the shore. Operational through the end of the war, the harbor at Arromanches landed 2.5 million men, 500,000 vehicles and 4 million tons of supplies, and it is considered a key component in the Allies’ ultimate victory. Our next stop was the Battle of Normandy Museum in Bayeux. In retrospect it might have been better to start there, since it gives an excellent overview of the events of June 6, 1944, and immediately thereafter, with a very well-done and comprehensive presentation of artifacts, exhibits and audiovisuals. On to Utah Beach, the more distant and perhaps marginally less-visited of the American targets of the D-Day invasion. On an overcast Friday afternoon, there were few people about, so we wandered the wide low-tide beach pretty much alone, marveling at the prospect of having to run across such an open, unprotected expanse with

guns shooting at you from the high ground just beyond the beach. Early the next morning we were picked up right next to our hotel for our prescheduled “Band of Brothers” group tour. Our highly knowledgeable guide, Oliver, came equipped with large books of charts, maps and photos. Stops on the tour included a line of huge German bunkers, some with the massive guns still in place; Omaha beach, one of the two main American landing spots on D-Day; Pointe du Hoc, where the U.S. Rangers had to climb high clifs in an almost suicidal efort to destroy German guns that were thought to be shooting at the D-Day landings on the beach below; Sainte-Mere-Eglise, the irst French town liberated on D-Day and now the

site of a small museum explaining the role of C-47 transport planes and gliders (and don’t miss the “paratrooper” dangling from his parachute caught on the church steeple, which actually happened); the American military cemetery, a somber and heartbreaking multitude of white crosses and Stars of David, laid out in a green, peaceful expanse overlooking the beaches where so many died; and Marmion’s Farm and Brecourt Manor, two key sites in the Band of Brothers story where the general public is not usually allowed.

MEMPHIS IN MAY

Striking a balance a priority for new economic director By Jennifer Pignolet pignolet@commercialappeal.com 901-529-2372

PHOTOS BY KAREN PULFER FOCHT/THE COMMERCIAL APPEAL

Collierville resident Lyman Aldrich was living downtown in the late 1970s when he founded the Memphis in May festival. “It wasn’t to plan a party,” he said. “It was to create economic development.” He saw the event as a way “to introduce people back to downtown again.”

In the late 1970s, downtown Memphis was dying. The Peabody was shuttered. The century-old A. Schwab dry goods store was the only place open on Beale Street. Still, a few people — most prominently, a current resident of Collierville — decided the city of Memphis should celebrate. Call it Memphis in May. Have the Memphis Symphony play at sunset on the banks of the Mississippi. Hold a Beale Street Music Festival. Honor a country. It looked like a party, but it was a vehicle to revitalize downtown, says the founder of the event and a local historian. Dr. Wayne Dowdy with the Memphis and Shelby County Room of the Benjamin L. Hooks Central Library is collecting documents and photos about how Memphis in May events helped change the face of downtown. “Lyman Aldrich and Memphis in May were very important in the redevelopment of downtown,” Dowdy said. Before MIM, Dowdy said, “Downtown was something of a ghost town. People worked downtown. But at 5 o’clock it was totally depopulated. Memphis had, in es-

sence, abandoned downtown.” Aldrich, who now lives just a few blocks from Town Square in Collierville, was the organization’s founder and its irst president in 1977. Aldrich, who lived downtown in the late 1970s in a converted cotton warehouse he developed into a 24-unit condo, said most people don’t know the story behind MIM. “It wasn’t to plan a party,” he said. “It was to create economic development.” There was a precursor Memphis in May event at the Memphis Cook Convention Center in 1973 under the Chamber of Commerce umbrella. Aldrich was treasurer in 1974 of what was then called Memphis in May International Festival Society. With no activities for three years, a Chamber staf member told Aldrich in mid-1976: “It’s your turn to be president. We don’t

have any money or suggestions. You could tank it (MIM) and nobody is going to care.” Instead, Aldrich took on the challenge. He dropped the “society” moniker. He was 32 and single. He found a host of young people to help. “We wanted to introduce people back to downtown again,” Aldrich said. “Dr. (Martin Luther) King had been killed just nine years before. We knew it couldn’t be a white event. If we were going to grow as a community, it had to include everybody.” Aldrich decided Japan would be the ideal country to honor at a irst festival because there was a trade deicit between Japan and the U.S. He sought and gained the help of Datsun Forklift President Kochi Iwata. The irst Beale Street Music Festival, with B.B. King playing at midnight, drew a crowd of 6,500.

Cameron Ross knows good leadership is about balance. It was an obvious irst lesson when he was a white water rafting guide in college, literally balancing the raft and the entertainment of tourists. The concept is more metaphorical in his new role in Germantown. As the new director of economic and community development services, Ross is tasked with balancing economic and neighborhood growth with preserving the character of Germantown. “You’re never going to make everyone happy, but as long as you’re balanced, I think there’s success in that,” Ross said. City Administrator Patrick Lawton hired Ross to replace Andy Pouncey, who retired at the end of last year. Ross, 34, started work Monday and will be paid $100,000 a year. Lawton said Ross’ duties include implementing the city’s Economic Development Strategic Plan. The city hired a consulting irm last year to create the plan. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen last week approved extending the company’s contract ive months until the end of the iscal year to help transition Ross to take over the project. The company, Rose & Associates Southeast Inc., will be on retainer at least through June for up to 18 hours per week at a cost of $37,500 plus up to $2,500 in expenses per month. Between the economic strategic plan and the city’s Smart Growth strategy, Ross will focus on combining all the goals and create a road map for

accomplishing them. He will oversee a department of people in roles like planing, neighborhood services and code compliance. Recruiting new businesses isn’t his main focus, but he is always willing to be a point of contact for potential business owners thinking of coming to the city. “I think that Germantown is one of those places where businesses want to come,” Ross said. “They can pretty easily look at the demographics of the community and see that there’s a signiicant amount of buying power here.” Ross, a native of Madison, Miss., attended the University of Southern Mississippi, where he met his wife, Andrea, a food safety specialist. They moved to Cincinnati, Ohio, where Ross worked for the Environmental Protection Agency and then the city of Cincinnati. He most recently spent six years as a planner in charge of several projects focusing on neighborhoods. He managed a $2.4 million federal grant to create land development codes. “It was all about making places more livable,” Ross said. Ross said he is a community guy at his core and is looking forward to meeting people in Germantown and “trying to igure out what they love and how to keep people loving it.” Ross said his irst priority, though, is listening to the community about what they want their city to look like. “Germantown has been successful without me,” he said. “I’ve got to observe and igure out how they’ve been successful and igure out what should be augmented and what should just continue to work.”

“I think that Germantown is one of those places where businesses want to come,” said Cameron Ross, 34. He was recently hired as the city’s director of economic and community development services. As part of a team building exercise, the 2014 Germantown Chamber Ambassadors went to Cordova Bowling Center.

GIVING BACK

My brother and I were blessed to grow up in a household with an opendoor policy, where we saw our parents constantly helping others. Being involved in organizations, like the Boy Scouts of America, where our parents volunteered and served as leaders, further modeled the importance of community service. Those experiences led and continually guide my focus on giving back and my brother’s proud service to our country as a Marine. For our community to thrive, we need more servant leaders. Teaching our children to give back can also be a powerful source of inding happiness, for you and them. Recently we started sharing easy ways to teach children how to give back. Another favorite is neighborhood service projects. Walking around your neighborhood presents opportunities to help others, like raking leaves or picking up trash. Trash pickups are quick to organize, easy

for kids of all ages, and powerful learning lessons. Host a “Beneficial Birthday Jeremy C. Party.” Sit Park down with your child before time to learn about nonproits and let them select one to tie into the event. It can be simple, like promoting the organization at the party, but once your child starts to take ownership, over time they will ask for all presents to be items that can be donated, like teddy bears to the Memphis Child Advocacy Center. Deliver a meal together. MIFA has an easy platform with Meals On Wheels, which you can do throughout the week and during holidays. Their healthy meals are made and packaged each morning and, as a volunteer, you are given a route of senior citizens to help. For many seniors, this is their one hot meal and personal contact for the day, so the experience is full of smiles.

Collierville residents volunteer their time to serve on various town boards to provide guidance to town leaders. The Parks Advisory Board, established in 1984, is a support and information commission formed to provide citizen representation from the town, to partner with the Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts Department. Volunteer board members, as with other boards and commissions, apply to the Mayor and Board of Aldermen annually, expressing an interest to serve. Appointments are one year at a time, and the group selects their own chairman. Members must be Collierville residents and cannot

be town employees. Working with Collierville Parks, Recreation and Cultural Arts personnel, the board is charged with promoting, understanding, appreciation, participation and support for open spaces, parks, recreational opportunities, cultural activities, programs and facilities. The Planning Commission of the Town of Collierville, like the other 14 boards and commissions, is comprised of volunteer residents. Jaime Groce, Town Planner with Collierville Planning Division, is the staf liaison and coordinates meetings. Agenda content may include site developments for upcoming projects like subdivisions, planned developments, or proposed site plans. Other duties of

the Planning Commission include recommendations to the BMA on re-zonings or changes to the zoning ordinance. The Historic District Commission is a group of volunteers appointed by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen to serve on the commission and interact with Town of Collierville employees and other advisory board members. Serving up to a ive-year term, the seven members strive to preserve historic and/or architectural value of the district. The commission also considers the appropriateness of any new alteration, additions, demolition or exterior changes visible to public right of way and compatibility and how the design its with the Historic District.

The Humane Society, 935 Farm Road, is open 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. Tuesday-Friday, 10 a.m. to 5 p.m. Saturday and 1-5 p.m. Sunday.
