say Hello! to our new neighbors..... Hello Morristown, my name is Jana Bunsic and I’d like to introduce myself and my family... We are “Team Bunsic”. My husband, Tim and I are the heads of the team. I lightheartedly refer to us as “Team Bunsic” at times in reference to our wedding ceremony in which our officiant, Judge Susie Lebow, referred to our union as such. Anxious to expand the “Team” we adopted almost immediately. Java Bunsic, now approximately four and one half years old, was rescued out of a dumpster in Tampa, FL emaciated and unable to walk on her four legs. As she naps on her (actually our) Swedish memory foam mattress it is clear her dumpster diving days are a distant memory. For a second anniversary present, our oldest, Aviah Kay (now 3) was born, followed up two seasons later by Briony Leigh (1). They are truly God’s gifts to us, as my husband says they are “daddy’s miracles.” As is the case with every new parent, they brought us to rethink our lives. Although we were both stable in our jobs, Tim as a partner in a civil litigation law firm and myself as a clinic medical director, we didn’t feel fulfilled. As the co-captains of the team, Tim and I, after much deliberation made the decision to move our family from Pembroke Pines, FL to Morristown,TN. continued...

c i s n u B e y Th l i m a F

I was born and raised in South Florida but spent all my vacations in areas with water or mountains, whereasTim was born and bread in upstate NewYork. His was an outdoor-enthusiast type of childhood, whereas mine you could say revolved a ro u n d shopping, dining and every type of lesson imaginable. Desiring a more wholesome upbringing De D fo our children and a different pace and for ffocus of life for ourselves, we began discussing our options. We agreed my thin Florida skin might not survive the harsh NY winter, nor was Tim looking forward to a daily regimen of shoveling for 5 months of winter. He wanted lakes, I wanted mountains, and we agreed the east coast was the most conducive to visiting friends and family. In our search we interviewed in Mississippi, North Carolina and Knoxville. Although we liked Knoxville, it just didn’t feel like home. Remembering one of about 500 phone calls Tim and I had received from physician recruiters, some small voice inside told us to reconsider a place called Morristown. The next week

we flew up to meet with everyone at Healtstar Physicians and were sold on this corner of the world as the new Team Bunsic headquarters. We have been here for two months now and we love it. We love our kid-friendly neighborhood, and Aviah enjoys naming off all her new friends with pride. Briony celebrated her first birthday here and the neighborhood kids had fun guessing how many handfuls of cake she would consume in the first minute. (The winner guessed 6!) Tim is hard at work establishing his new law firm w la here in Morristown where he’ll be handling a wide variety of cases. I am enthusiastic to begin to practice Family Medicine in a well-organized, d, forward-thinking group such as Healthstar. Having a diverse array of medical education and experience, I am excited to offer my expertise in adult and pediatric medicine, clinical nutrition including weight loss, preventative medicine including smoking cessation and osteopathic manipulative medicine including cranial osteopathy. I hope to contribute to the medical community in Morristown by improving health outcomes in east Tennessee one patient at a time. continued...

Regardless of what the media, your family or the neighbors say, if your home is not selling you want to know why. Traditionally there are 5 factors that affect the selling of a home: 1.) Seller Motivation: are you really motivated to sell? If you are relocating you probably are, but if you are willing to sit on the house for a few months buyers will be willing to wait you out. 2.) Lending Rates and Financing: are interest rates favorable? states that mortgage rates are likely to close 2008 at 6%, which is a favorable mortgage rate. This rate may change a quarter of a point or two, but generally remain around 6% (according to experts currently studying trends). 3.) Location: as the saying goes, “location, location, location.” If your property is not located in a favorable place it will be difficult to sell in any market. 4.) Condition: have you painted the walls? Is the house clean? Are there any glaring damages that need to be repaired? If your property is not in good condition when you put it on the market, buyers will walk in the door and walk back out. You have to present your house in its best light on a daily basis. 5.) Pricing: in today’s market, this is the most important factor. With the market flush with homes, you HAVE TO PRICE CORRECTLY.

When buyers are looking for property the first factor they consider is the price. If your house is not priced correctly, buyers will walk to the next house. So, if you’re still saying to yourself: “I’ve done all those things!! I have a great house, it’s clean, shows great, is in a good location, and it’s priced as low as I can price it. What do I do now?” Believe me, I know how you feel. There are quite a few frustrated sellers on the market today. My first words of advice would be that if you do not have your home currently listed with a REALTOR, do so as soon as possible. Although it may seem like marketing and selling your own home is well within your skill set, a REALTOR can offer you access to the multiple listing service, more online access, knowledge of required forms, and many other options you may not have considered. Also, almost 90% of “for sale by owner” homes eventually end up being sold by REALTORS. If you have your home listed with a REALTOR, consider your pricing. Since the beginning of 2008 more and more homes are sitting on the market mainly due to inappropriate pricing. If you are a buyer, you may have noticed that you are looking at more vacant homes than you are owner occupied homes. Pricing has become very competitive and if you are not a motivated seller, buyers will not be sending you offers. Homes that are priced right and priced to sell will sell.

Please feel free to call or email me at any time if you are interested in buying, selling, or just to get an idea of today’s market. And best of luck!!

Guide where





The Smith’s and Kentucky Fried Chicken together 43 years and counting!

new location opening soon in front of East High School Clifford Smith took his wife and 4 small children and left his hometown of Morristown, TN to pursue a career change, due to some health problems, in DeLand, Florida in August of 1964. While he was in Florida, he discovered a new restaurant called Kentucky Fried Chicken. He liked the chicken so much that he inquired for the owner, who was not there at the time. He was told that this restaurant was actually doing well in a location where nothing had ever done well before. Clifford said he would be back. When he went back and talked to the owner, he asked how the business was and was told that he could make more than just a living. This was all Clifford needed to hear. In March 1965, Clifford returned to his hometown of Morristown and pursued the franchise for KFC, which he got in May of 1965 right after Colonel Sanders had sold the KFC business to Jack Massey and John Y. Brown for $2 million. At this time, Clifford owns four KFC restaurants: Morristown West opened first in November 1965 and moved to it’s current location in the Spring of 1969, Jefferson City opened in July 1971 and relocated to it’s current location in October 1986, Morristown East opened in January 1984 and will be relocating to 521 East Morris Boulevard (across the street from Morristown Hamblen High School East) in October 2008, and Rogersville opened June 1986. Although Clifford has retired from the actual operations of the business, his son, Michael has been running the business since January 1981. At one to time or another, Clifford’s three daughters, Debbie, Pamela, and Linda have all worked in the business. His son-in-law, Carroll Dotson, and daughter-in-law,

Karen Smith, and granddaughter,April Mills, are presently working in the business also. “KFC has truly been a blessing to our family throughout the years and we feel fortunate to have been a part of its beginnings and growth” says Michael Smith. One favorite memory of Clifford’s about the Colonel was when Clifford invited the Colonel to be in the local Morristown Christmas parade. A local businessman mentioned to Clifford that he would really be impressed if Clifford was able to get “his Colonel worth 2 Million Dollars” to ride on his Christmas float down Main Street. Not only did the Colonel ride the Christmas float down Main Street that year, but the Colonel was the talk of the town for months afterwards.

Cosmetic Acupuncture for Beauty Faci ergy give gives one a “natural glow”, a relaxed facial expression, increa face stim flow to the facial tissue. Without a dou Facia Acupuncture rejuvenates facial tissue and gives the Facial face a bright and alert appearance. It lifts the face through mus muscle rejuvenation and its tightening action on pores and facia facial tissue. The face literally “glows”! Bodily systems an ly tion are enhanced and there is an increase in oxygenation helping to transport new nutrients and remove toxins away from the facial skin, resulting in a more radiant and glowing complexion. Fine lines may be entirely erased. Deeper lines are reduced an firmed up. Facial points and the entire body are simultaneously being stimulated. Traditionally, Acupuncture is a preventive form of healthcare and is effective for the prevention of and the treatment of acute and chronic conditions, for the relief of pain, pain management, sports injuries, trauma and more. Now a popular use for Acupuncture is FACIAL ACUPUNCTURE. The New York Times Sunday edition, September 5, 2004, ran an article on Facial Acupuncture for the removal of wrinkles as the choice of many Hollywood stars. You’ve most likely heard of the saying “Beauty is more than just skin deep.” There are two meanings to that famous phase. ONE- Beauty is not simply about how a person looks, but the personality and characteristics of the person. TWO – External beauty is related to the internal workings of the body. The inner body’s condition will be reflected externally on the complexion and from Chinese medicine’s point of view, both of these meanings certainly hold true.

Most of the meridians (which are the channels that your body energy or Qi flows) either starts or finishes on the face, and there are also plenty of acupuncture points on the face. Since each meridian relates to a specific organ in our body, and the health and wellbeing of those organs are reflected through the meridian systems, it is easy to understand how our face can be a reflection of what’s going on internally in our body. If a person is unhappy, or stressed or worried all the time, this obviously will have a detrimental effect on their beauty.

Are you ready for a more glowing and exuberant complexion? Call us today... Kirk & Kirk Health Clinic 1539 W Andrew Johnson Hwy Morristown, TN 37814 (423) 585-5556 www.

Breast cancer didn’t catch her by surprise. Because we caught it first.

Screening mammograms are important for early detection of breast cancer. They can, in some cases, detect a lump in the breast before you can feel it with your fingers. That’s why the American Cancer Society recommends a baseline mammogram screening at age 35 and then every year for all women age 40 and over. For more information, call 423-318-9128 or visit
