Mayor outlines scope of road work By yR Ruth uth ut th White Whit Wh ite e

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett visited Halls early last week to discuss the future of the Andersonville Pike/Emory Road intersection. The press conference marked the official start of the work that is scheduled to be complete in 90 days per Knox County inspector Steve Elliott. A traffic signal will replace the four-way stop, and each side of the intersection will have a left turn lane. This should alleviate congestion during school drop-off and pick-up at Halls Elementary and the after-work traffic on that portion of Emory Road. “(County Commissioner) Larry Smith has been on my back about this for some time,” said Burchett. “It got to where I didn’t take his calls because I knew what he wanted.” As school begins, construction will be limited to 9 a.m. through 3 p.m. Halls Elementary School principal Chris Henderson is working with the Sheriff’s Office and school security to keep traffic flowing as smoothly as possible. “We will have many extra staff on duty during the morning dropoff and afternoon pick-up times to ensure that the traffic moves as safely and quickly in and out of our campus as possible,” he said. Halls Elementary School parents are encouraged to carpool or use bus transportation, when available, as much as possible. The building opens at 7 a.m. and there is seldom a traffic line before 7:25 a.m. “The timing of the project is what it is. We are just focusing on doing everything we can as a school to get our kids on and off campus safely and in a timely manner,” said Henderson.

School leadership is key McIntyre outlines selection process By Jake Mabe Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre said selecting school administrators is “the most important thing I do” and “I take the job of putting the right school leaders in the right place seriously.” McIntyre said he personally interviews each one. “It’s that important. It’s not something I take lightly and I make the decision based on what’s in the best interest of the school and particularly of the children.” Responding to recent Shopper-News stories in which we questioned personnel decisions at Shannondale Elementary and Halls High, McIntyre said there are times when he has to make difficult decisions. He says principal Jack Nealy “brings to Shannondale what it needs to be a continuing success. “Jack has a great way in terms of working with teachers, parents and stu-

dents to feel great pride and to ensure that the school is focused on student learning. I think the Shannondale community will be pleased with his leadership.” McIntyre called former Halls High assistant principal Jason Webster “excellent” and says he was “not involuntarily moved,” adding that Webster’s “initial reaction” was to say no to Jon Rysewyk, supervisor of secondary education, when he first approached Webster about the open assistant principal position at the L&N STEM Academy. Webster was asked to consider it and to talk with McIntyre who says, “I was very clear that I would not involuntarily transfer him. He’s doing great work.” Mike Wise, a teacher at Hardin Valley Academy, has replaced Webster at Halls High. McIntyre said Wise did excellent work in the Great School Partnership’s Summer Bridge Program and was recom-

I talked a little more hiring decisions are based about myself personally on “what’s best for kids and and got some positive feedthe educational program.” back.” Photo by Ruth White This was confirmed by a teacher who said, “It was mended by Halls High the best job I’ve ever seen Dr. McIntyre do with this principal Mark Duff.

administration. Many retired or quit, two went to the Leadership Academy, but some were reassigned to the classroom. That process was brutal. A veteran administrator told us: “I was called to Dr. McIntyre’s office and placed at a conference table. He came into the room (along with two others) and said, ‘You’re a nice (person), but not a good fit. I’m placing you back in the classroom.’ “He got up and left and that was it. I gave my heart and soul to (my school) and didn’t even get a handshake for the trouble.” Instead, this administrator will take a multithousand dollar pay cut. Seeking legal recourse, the educator discovered that Tennessee is a rightto-work state, which in part means a superintendent is not required to give a reason for personnel changes.

Joan will miss her job and co-workers, but looks forward to many more things. “I have enjoyed working at the Register of Deeds office,” she said. “No one could ask for a better workplace. I will miss the staff and the many friendships I have made through the years.” Joan and her husband, Ronnie, live in the Halls community. They have two children, Keith and Angie, and three grandchildren, Dylan, Logan and Gracie. We wish Joan and her family all the best in the coming years.

For the month ending July 31, there were 843 property transfers recorded in Knox County, 200 more than last July. This is the third consecutive month that has produced more than 800 transfers. Property sales have outperformed those of 2011 for five straight months. The total dollar amount of the real estate sold here in July was $186.5 million, ahead of both May and June, and some $40 million more than last July. May and June combined were about $40 million ahead of the same period last year. There was also a noticeable jump in mortgage lending. More than $315 million was loaned against property in Knox County. Compare that to approximately $278 million loaned against real estate in June, and just $184 million in July of 2011.

‘All shook up’ about ‘blue suede’ jackpot Call it a treasure hunt, if you will, one that made me “All Shook Up” when I found the “blue suede” jackpot.

Jake Mabe MY TWO CENTS After I wrote a series of articles in the spring highlighting Elvis Presley’s first concert appearance in Knoxville on April 8, 1972, I got wind that an individual had recorded and kept 8mm “bootleg” film footage of three Elvis concerts at Stokely Athletic Center – the 1972 evening show, the March 15, 1974, evening show and Elvis’ last appearance here on May 20, 1977, three months before his death. Presley died 35 years ago this Thursday (Aug. 16) at age 42. Sure enough, I found him, and the film, which had been stored in a bank vault for more than 30 years. Fountain City resident John Stansberry, a retired sheet metal worker who also drove buses, bought his first 8mm movie camera after

his mother-in-law bought one in the 1960s. They were expensive, but John was “a union man,” as he said, and earned good wages. He could afford it. His first camera was an Argus and John says, “every time a new movie camera came out, I’d get it. Some of them cost $400 or $500, which was a fortune then.” He used it as a time capsule to film his family on holidays and vacations. And he used it to film Elvis when The King came to Knoxville. “Elvis was a showman. Those tickets cost $10. That was a fortune then, but he still filled the house.” Stansberry shot six minutes at each show. One reel of 8mm film could capture three minutes. The cameras at that time did not have sound. You see Presley in his prime in ’72, looking like a prince. You see him in ’74, just before the decline, introducing gospel singer J.D. Sumner, swiveling his hips to “Polk Salad Annie,” kicking bodyguard Sonny West off the stage. And you see him in ’77, sick and sweaty, but still singing from his soul. “He never lost his voice,” John says.

On one of them, Stansberry chats with Elvis’ father, Vernon, who was leaning out of one of Graceland’s windows near the swimming pool. “I said, ‘We sure hate all this about Elvis’ death.’ “He said, ‘Yeah, we still haven’t gotten over it.’ He talked just like a normal guy.” Stansberry says Elvis Presley Enterprises, which he phoned, and his children and grandchildren have no interest in the film. He is willing to entertain offers to sell them. “What I’ve got is one-ofa-kind.” Serious offers can be sent to (865) 771-9595.

School leadership is key County Schools, 11 of which were fi led by staff on personnel issues, according to Law Director Joe Jarret. Others include personal injury cases as teachers are not eligible for workers’ compensation. A Nashville law firm has been hired by the Tennessee Education Association to handle lawsuits on behalf of its members. Courtney Wilbert, a partner in that firm, said no cases are currently set, although five cases were consolidated and heard in April by Chancellor Daryl Fansler.

Leadership Academy Development of effective school leaders is a major component of the school system’s strategic plan. McIntyre is tasked to “create strong leadership at each school.” Three years ago he recommended and the school board created the Leadership Academy, a program to which aspiring principals apply.

His pension, based on time served, will be over $2,850 a month or $34,500 a year which substantially exceeds his income as a representative. Few outside his Memphis district knew Kernell. He seldom sponsored a bill which was enacted or advocated significant issues. He was probably best known as the father of David Kernell, a UT student who was convicted in federal district court for hacking into the email of former vice presidential candidate Sarah Palin. On the other hand, Mike was personally a very nice and friendly person to all. ■ Mayor Madeline Rogero is meeting individually with each of the nine city council members over the next several weeks to discuss their priorities as well as to become better acquainted. This is a wise move as a strong personal relationship with council members is important to the success of her agenda. Even when an individual council member disagrees on a specific issue, there will be other issues on which they will agree and the mayor needs backing. These meetings are generally one-on-one wherever the council member wishes to meet. Since only one council member is involved in each meeting, there is not a violation of the state’s open meetings law. ■ Council member Nick Della Volpe has advised this writer that he has not decided whether to seek a second term in 2013. He says “it is too soon” to decide. Meanwhile, he is working to complete the greenway near Love’s Creek, a priority of his for many years.

Kizer’s father served as a Circuit Court judge in Gibson County in West Tennessee where Kizer grew up before moving to Knoxville to go to the University of Tennessee Law School. Kizer is a hiker and served on the Knoxville Community Development Corporation as a member and chair by appointment of this writer. ■ The special justices will consider the challenge of former Democratic gubernatorial candidate John Jay Hooker to Tennessee’s plan for judicial selection of judges. This issue has been around since the early 1970s when the plan was enacted by the Legislature with supporters saying it keeps money out of the judicial selection process and opponents arguing that it denies the people a direct vote on choosing judges. Hooker came close to being elected governor in 1970 but was defeated by Winfield Dunn, then a Memphis dentist, who became the first Republican Governor in over 50 years. Hooker today is 80 and has had a long and varied political and business career. Dunn is 84 and in good health living in Nashville with his wife, Betty. ■ Council member Marshall Stair, who is an avid canoeist, is also a dedicated backpacker having spent a week in July in Montana with his younger brother Morgan hiking the western backwoods.

The idea of extending Murphy Road from Washington Pike to Millertown Pike isn’t new, but hasn’t been talked about much in recent years. Last week, City Council member Nick Della Volpe informed his constituents that it’s back on the agenda. “There will likely be public meetings with the east Knox community to discuss this,” led by the county’s team, Della Volpe said after meeting with the mayors of Knoxville and Knox County to discuss the idea. Kevin Murphy, who has restored his historic family home at the corner of Murphy Road and Washington Pike, said he would like to hear more from both governments. “Did they present a plan for keeping the community in the loop? I don’t think anybody from the community has heard from the city since we proactively reached out to Mayor Rogero in late May.” Della Volpe said that he and Mayor Madeline Rogero will meet with Metropolitan Planning Commission chief Mark Donaldson

Betty Bean later this month to discuss developing a small area plan to coordinate planning and encourage public participation. Meanwhile, the plan to add a lane to Millertown Pike from Kinzel Way to Loves Creek Road is proceeding, and will accommodate three lanes, one of them a two-way left turn lane. The project will include a sidewalk and improvements to the existing bridge. Della Volpe said he has asked city engineers to coordinate with greenway planners to resurrect another long-dormant plan that would create a greenway trail from the Knoxville Center area southward along Love’s Creek to Holston Hills and Riverside Drive, tying into the trail at the Ned McWherter Bridge. ■ City planning guru Bill Lyons says he wasn’t taking a shot at the News

Sentinel for running a headline saying “KimberlyClark wants $200,000 incentive to stay in Knoxville city limits,” when he reminded City Council members that the News Sentinel got a PILOT deal (payment in lieu of taxes) similar to the one Kimberly-Clark was requesting when it moved from downtown to Mechanicsville. Lyons said KimberlyClark will be moving to the former Goody’s headquarters for similar reasons as those cited by the News Sentinel – essentially because the downtown location didn’t suit the company’s needs. Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis is enthusiastic about the project, pointing out that the city will be helping a Fortune 500 business establish itself in a highvisibility interstate location and that Kimberly-Clark isn’t asking to be excused from paying real estate taxes on property valued at $10 million. ■ Knoxville City Council again demonstrated its willingness to work with citizens who live outside the city limits when

it approved a sector plan amendment and rezoning for a project on Bridgewater Road. Danny Harb of HarbWhite Properties said he had been working with Sue Mauer of Crestwood Hills to get the property rezoned from Medium Density Residential to Medium Density Residential/Office. “We have addressed the neighborhood’s concerns about signage and lighting,” Harb said, explaining that the lighting will be bright enough to address security concerns without leaking onto surrounding properties. Harb-White has also agreed to have monument-style signage instead of a pole-mounted sign. Council member Duane Grieve had compliments for both sides: “This is a really good example of a project in the city and neighbors in the county working together.” “They’ve been mostly a pleasure to work with,” Harb said. “I’m sure they probably say the same thing about you,” quipped Mayor Madeline Rogero.

Lane Kiffin revisited (again) TALES OF TENNESSEE | Marvin West


bout the time Lane Kiffin landed in Los Angeles and used mattress fires were going out in Knoxville, I told myself not to waste any more words on the boy coach who wanted to be Steve Spurrier. Kiffin cooperated. He stopped throwing verbal hand grenades. In the two years and several months that followed, he seemed almost subdued on TV. There were rumors that Kiffin was growing up. He loved his dream job. No more far-out behavior, no more wrecked courtesy cars, no more wild and crazy risks. All was quiet on the western front. Southern Cal went on serious probation. God was watching. New athletic di-

rector Pat Haden was all business. Be careful. Be nice. Alas and alas, the NCAAhandicapped team won 10 games last season at the exact time Tennessee was losing seven. Kiffin was exalted for his ability to manage the penalty. Southern Cal killed UCLA, 50-0, on the same Saturday Derek Dooley was trying to explain the Kentucky disaster. The question was obviously poetic: Wonder where the Vols would be If Kiffin had stayed at Tennessee? The first answer was “on probation.� The second was “Kiffin didn’t belong here. He was

never one of us.� Tennessee people who cheered his arrival jeered his departure. Lane was lame, decent as an offensive coach but suspect as a human being. Zero loyalty, questionable character. And his righthand man, Ed Orgeron, was worse. They actually tried to steal early enrollees. Blatant bandits! What’s more, daddy Kiffin had no clue how to defend the wildcat formation. Good riddance. Critics piled on. Of all the complaints I heard, my favorite was “Lane was always living on the edge.� Irresponsible. Wrong. Cocky, confrontational, controversial, perhaps contrived.

If players want black jerseys, we’ll have black jerseys. Recruit, always recruit. Indeed, Lane recruited boldly but half the four- and five-stars he brought in were overloaded with bad baggage. It was embarrassing. Make-believe armed robbery in a Pilot parking lot?

since my friend introduced me to stonecrop, and I have since lost touch with him and his wife. (It is a sad fact that friends get divided up in a divorce, much like the linens and the pets.) But whenever I think of stonecrop, I think of Paul. Paul had grown up around flowers. His parents owned a nursery CROSS CURRENTS | Lynn Hutton in the small West Virginia town where we lived. He knew them by name – both their common The wilderness and the dry land shall be glad, the desert shall and scientific names – much as rejoice and blossom; like the crocus it shall blossom abundantly, and he knew the names of his friends. rejoice with joy and singing.

Stones that bloom


How dumb can football players be? OK, Kiffin did sign Tyler Bray. That was then. There is a current problem. Kiffin is back, luring the No. 1 prep star in Tennessee. Blue-chip prospects have flocked to him. Matt Barkley smiled at NFL draft talk and chose a

of the sedum family and they are varied and many and large and robust and flowering. The amazing thing about the little river rock-looking stonecrop I first met is this: as it grows, it divides (much like cells), right in the middle and becomes like two stones, squished up against each other. (Imagine two lumps of bread dough formed into balls and allowed to rise and meet.) And eventually, out of those two “stones� – out of the dividing line between them – will sprout a flower. I realize that even as I try to describe it, you can’t imagine it unless you have seen it: it is a miracle, one of God’s countless tiny miracles in this world, and a parable for life. A stone that blooms is a sign of hope in hard times.

better deal, remaining Kiffin’s quarterback. Trojan vultures got Penn State’s best player. Southern Cal projects as a contender, maybe the cofavorite with LSU, for the national championship. Oh my, that means comparisons between Kiffin and Dooley will continue. They are unfair. Southern Cal had talent when Lane arrived. Dooley inherited whatever it was Lane left behind. It was no treasure chest. Kiffin has undergone a philosophical transformation. At 37, he is now new and improved. What the late Al Davis said about him is almost forgotten. He is building credibility. He is actually diplomatic. People like him. He smiles instead of smirks. He even laughs about the old days when he was voted most despised coach in college football. Here in Tennessee, rejection still hurts but too many fans can’t decide whether it is good or bad that Kiffin is gone. That is sad. Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is

Like the desert blossoming, a flower growing out of a rock is one of God’s little Hallmark cards to us: A “Hang in there� message, or a “Surprise ahead� promise, or a “Love you; don’t forget� note in your lunchbox. There are hard days when the present is bleak and the tomorrows look a lot like the yesterdays. In the midst of the ups and downs of life, it helps to remember that God made flowers spring forth out of rocks to make us smile. A God who cares about us enough to surprise us with flowers, like any lover sending a bouquet, is a God who will be with us, in the deserts and in the springtimes of life. That is a God who makes me want to offer God my worship, my service, my obedience, my praise, my love, my all.

The geniuses behind Gibbs Drive HISTORY AND MYSTERIES | Dr. Jim Tumblin In nominating the Gibbs Drive Historic District for the National Register of Historic Places, Cathryn Irwin, then program director for Knox Heritage, said, “The Gibbs Drive Historic District is a neighborhood of 52 residences and associated outbuildings that reflect the characteristics of the streetcar and automobile suburb in Knoxville. The district has a linear street pattern, broad sidewalks, spacious façade lawns and sidewalks. “Beginning in the era of streetcar suburbs, the neighborhood development continued throughout the period when automobile usage and ownership became prolific in Knoxville. The predominant building styles and forms are the bungalow, Craftsman, Minimal Traditional and four squares. Overall, the district is an outstanding example of the early twentieth century trend away from the elaborate Victorian era styles, to a more simplified floor plan and appearance.” Early on, excellent transportation to Fountain City was provided by “The Dummy Line,” the Fountain Head Railroad (18901905), which surrendered its standard gauge tracks to electric streetcars from 1905 to 1934, when gasoline buses replaced them. Through those eras Woodward Station remained a stop for the tran-

sit system. That station, one of the 23 stops between Central Park (Emory Place) and Fountain City, was named for Col. J.C. Woodward, owner of the elegant mansion Park Place, which stood directly across the tracks from the entrance to Jackson Boulevard (later Gibbs Drive). Many longtime Fountain citians will remember one of Gibbs Drive more famous residents, Carlos C. Campbell, author of “Birth of a National Park” (1960), with his briefcase and his umbrella boarding the bus at Woodward Station to go to his office downtown. Many other prominent Knox Countians have lived on the street, including Hop Bailey, former school board chair; George Dempster, inventor, industrialist and former Knoxville mayor; Daniel Orndorff, owner of Knoxville Music Co.; G.P. Pavlis, restaurant owner; Dr. Fred Tallent, pharmacist; J.A. Tindell, coal company executive and president of Fountain City Bank; Campbell Wallace, prominent civil engineer; and Judge W.L. Welcker. Now, 100 years after the Gibbs-Maloney Addition was developed, the residential integrity of the community has been preserved due to the foresight of Charles Gibbs and Frank Maloney. Several years ago, a professor in the UT School of Law prophetically described the duo’s

stringent deed restrictions as a model that would stand the test of time. The pertinent provisions in deeds for property in the Gibbs-Maloney Addition are that said premises shall be used for residential purposes only and that the house erected on said premises shall face on Jackson Boulevard (later Gibbs Drive); that they shall not be erected less that 50 feet from said Boulevard, and not more than one house at a time, not including outhouses, shall be on said lot; that the parties of the first part retain all privileges for street car, or other car tracks, gas, water and sewer pipes in and under the streets and alleys of said Addition, and no rights in said streets and alleys are here conveyed or conceded except for the purposes of ordinary travel; and that all these covenants and restrictions shall run with the land. Charles Russell Gibbs was born on Sept. 21, 1885. His parents were Professor William Carroll Gibbs (1839-1917), a direct descendent of Nicholas Gibbs, and Martha S. Bell (1848-1891). The family lived on Washington Pike near Belle Morris School. Professor Gibbs was an educator for most of his life and served as superintendent of the Knox County Schools from 1882-1883. The professor was exceedingly well-educated for

Carlos Campbell House (built 1926). This typical Gibbs Drive bungalow with a Craftsman influence was home to Carlos C. Campbell. Campbell and Frank Maloney were members of the board of the Great Smoky Mountains Conservation Association and key proponents of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park.

The Canary Cottage (Daniel Orndorff House) circa 1913. Among the first three houses built on Jackson Boulevard, later Gibbs Drive, was Daniel and Maude (Burkhart) Orndorff’s. Daniel owned the Victor Talking Machine Co. on Market Square, later called the Knoxville Music Co. Photos submitted

his time, having attended Emory and Henry College in Virginia and graduating from UT in 1876. Gibbs and Maloney Real Estate Co. began when Charles Gibbs was only 23 years old. He must have been a very enterprising young man as the book “Greater Knoxville Illustrated (1910),” states: “The real estate business, which is an accurate barometer of prosperity, shows a vigorous activity, especially in the offices of Gibbs and Maloney at Rooms 600 and 601, Bank and Trust Building. The firm commenced business two years ago and is composed of Chas. R. Gibbs and G.E. Maloney, both of whom are natives of Tennessee and have a large and influential connection through which they are well known for their energy and reliability. They do a general real estate business in city and county property.”

While the 1908 City Directory lists G. Edgar Maloney and C.R. Gibbs as owners of Gibbs and Maloney Co., the 1909 directory shows that Frank Maloney had become a partner in that year. It was pointed out in last month’s article that George Edgar Maloney (1875-1955) and Frank D. Maloney (1879-1952) were brothers and that Gen. Frank Maloney, in addition to his military career, was long associated with the movement to establish the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. Most of the houses on Gibbs Drive were built before 1930 but infill houses were built as late as 1950. Unfortunately, Charles R. Gibbs did not live to see the completion of the project. He passed away at his home in Bearden on April 11, 1918, at age 32, survived by his wife, Lula Haynes Gibbs, and three children. Lula Gibbs maintained

an interest in the GibbsMaloney Co. for some time, but then liquidated and moved to San Antonio, Texas, to live with her son. She passed away there on April 7, 1964, and her body was returned to be buried with her husband in Greenwood Cemetery. The historic Gibbs-Maloney Addition remains as a stellar example of a real estate development conducive to living the American dream in a compatible neighborhood. (Author’s Note: Information for this article was obtained from the Knox County Register of Deeds, the Knox County Archives, the C.M. McClung Historical Collection and Knox Heritage. These persons were especially helpful: Jenny Ball, Bill Bright, Vicky Bills, Hollie Cook, Rebecca Crawford, Eric Head, Bill Irwin, Tracy Long and Savannah Rouse.)


Christian artist Mary Burke

With HealthSpring,

Local artist Burke releases new CD By Cindy Taylor Mary Burke’s voice surrounds the listener like a favorite quilt in her debut release “Jesus Take My Hand.� The eight songs on this CD contain music for praise and adoration and create a perfect background for times of reflection and contemplation. Burke and her family, who hail from Michigan, have made Anderson County their home. She has been singing since an early age and, at 34 years old, has seen her share of hardships. Burke has three sons with

husband David, who was severely injured in a motorcycle accident in 2007 from which he is still recovering. David has only recently begun walking again and only with assistance. Burke said that coping with this devastating situation required constant prayer and sacrificing but God brought the family through it. Through her music, Burke now shares her wisdom with others who may be in the midst of hardto-bear situations. Burke and her husband founded Walk With Jesus

I now have the advantage of going just a little bit further.

Ministries and take their testimony on the road to churches wherever they are invited. “I sing for the Lord and David walks for Jesus,� said Burke. Sons David Jr., 12; Daniel, 9; and Dawson, 7, play guitar, fiddle and piano and have come alongside their parents to participate in the ministry. Burke wrote the music and lyrics for every song on her debut CD which is available for purchase on iTunes, Amazon and at

Graveyard to green pasture Tom Brown excels at Holston Middle By Betty Bean Holston Middle School was a principal’s graveyard when Tom Brown arrived in the summer of 2000. Test scores lagged, the building was outdated, resentments lingered over closing Gibbs Middle School and negative stories about the school were standard fare in local media. “Holston was nine years old and I was the fifth principal,” said Brown, who was recently named a finalist for Tennessee Principal of the Year. “What does that tell you about establishing expectations and routine? There were just a few things lacking Today, Holston’s come a long way.” And that’s not just Brown’s opinion. The school got national recognition two years ago when the Milken Foundation selected Holston as one of three Ambassador Award winners, given to schools that participate and excel in TAP, a system for teacher and student advancement developed in 1999 by Lowell Milken. Brown was singled out for some powerful praise on Milken’s TAP System website: “With TAP, princi-

Tom Brown at the school board pal Tom Brown and his team have transformed Holston Middle from one of the lowest performing middle schools to one of the highest,” said Gary Stark, president and CEO of the National Institute for Excellence in Teaching (NIET) – the organization that runs TAP and funds the Ambassador Award. “Holston Middle School – now a destination of choice for top teachers – is advancing and eager to share its recipe of success.” Holston’s students are drawn from a school zone that Brown describes as resembling a slice of pizza. “Our school is in the tip of the slice. Our students come from up near the Union and

Grainger County lines, from Ritta and Spring Hill and all over East Knox County to this urban area where we’re located. We have a wonderful school that always makes progress on student achievement. “Students are happy here, and the parents? I wish they

dents last year, making it a medium-sized middle school by Knox County standards. (Karns is the largest, with a population of some 1,400.) And thanks to a faculty that had the foresight to recognize the looming federal mandates, the school got ready for the 21st century demands in fine fashion, Brown said. “We have become a model school. About eight years ago, we started getting really serious about what we needed to do differently. We knew with No Child Left Behind, we were going to hit the wall. To be 100 percent proficient? That’s an impossible task.” So Brown and a group of teachers got together and brainstormed ideas. “We came up with some basic premises about what we needed to be as teachers, and how we needed to stretch ourselves. We started working on plans, and we stumbled across the TAP program. The Great Schools Partnership was looking at new ideas and programs and there were opportunities for people who were willing to roll the dice. We had the opportunity to do it, with no risk

were more excited, because we’re doing things that are exciting. Those from the outer zones would certainly like to have a school closer to their communities, but we can’t do anything about that but offer them a great school right here, and that’s what we’ve always intended.” Holston has produced a raft of instructional leaders, especially since instituting TAP. “TAP is based on best practices and on a metaanalysis of what works in teaching and learning. It brings in focused accountability and we use a robust evaluation model, expanded across the state of Tennessee. We know it backwards and forwards. We teach it to our teachers. “We imbed the professional development of our teachers into every week with the expectation that they take what they learn and apply it. Master and mentor teachers are in classrooms every day to reinforce those strategies, those highly effective teacher skills, and the results are absolutely amazing,” Brown said, pointing out that 87 percent of Holston’s 62 teachers scored at least 3 on a 5-level student achievement assessment. “Thirty nine of our teachers were level 5 and we lost nine teachers to promotion this summer. Last year was even more devastating – we lost 13.” Holston had 880 stu-

involved other than getting the faculty on board.” Thus, TAP started at Holston seven years ago. Brown comes by his passion for education naturally. His wife, Janet, retired this summer as assistant principal at Powell Middle School. His father, the late Willard Brown, coached at South High School, was assistant principal at Gresham Middle School and was principal at Rule High School when it was named one of the top four high schools in the country. “Seventeen years later, as the assistant principal at Gresham, I got to sit in his chair,” Brown said. “Except for the birth of my children, it was the proudest day of my life.” He says he’s been approached about transferring to other schools and pursued by other school districts dangling betterpaying offers. But Holston, he says, is where he needs to be. “We’ve persevered because we know a secret here, and we’ve proven it time and time again – we know how to grow great teachers. There is no greener pasture.”

Dental Answers Dr. Steven C. Crippen Question: “What is the purpose of

placing sealants on teeth?” Answer: Sealants for teeth are

plastic-like coatings that are "painted" into the cracks and crevices of primarily molar teeth. These coatings are placed on teeth to help prevent decay that often starts in these areas during the cavity prone years of childhood and adolescence. The first permanent

molar teeth are usually erupting ("coming in") in a child's mouth by age six, and sealants can be placed on them soon after the "gum" recedes away from the chewing surface of each tooth.

Ritta’s new driveway eases congestion By Ruth White At Ritta Elementary School, the new year brings a long-awaited improvement to the traffic flow. The improvements to the student morning drop-off and afternoon pick-up not only benefit the school, but also the Ritta community by easing daily traffic congestion on Washington Pike. A map of the new traffic pattern will be distributed at a Meet Your Teacher event 4-6 p.m. Monday, Aug. 13, (tonight) at the school. When approaching the school from

I-640, all entrances/exits are on the right side. Car rider parents will turn in the first entrance, travel the loop and stop at the pick-up positions. Note the original entrance drive to the school is now blocked off. Car rider families will need to sign up for their Car Rider Verification card the first few days of school. This card is to be displayed in the front windshield during pick up. “We appreciate the parents and community for being patient as the school

works to make traffic flow as quick and efficient as possible,” said Dowell. “We have increased students from 375 when I started here seven years ago to approximately 620 at the close of school.” Bus procedures will not be affected by the new traffic route and the crossing guard will still be utilized to assist in guiding parents and students. Morning drop-off at the school begins at 7:15 and pick up begins at approximately 2:40 p.m.

Mile-high dreams By Betty Bean Island Home Airport is at the end of Spence Lane, and Spencer McDonald thinks that’s pretty cool. Actually, 13-year-old Spencer thinks everything about Island Home Airport is pretty cool, especially the flying lessons he has just started. And something he thinks is extra cool is that he’s going to turn 14 in November, a significant milestone for the personable Gresham Middle School 8th grade honor student who knows he can’t solo until he is 16 nor get a pilot’s license until he is 17. “You can solo a glider at 14,” Spencer said, grinning broadly. “And that’s what I’m going to do.” His passion for flying is obvious as he sits at the airport watching someone else’s flying lesson. He can name the plane (a Cessna 172 Skyhawk) and the maneuver (“touch-and-goes”). He is a member of the Aircraft Owners and Pilots Association (AOPA) and the Knox County Radio Control Association (KCRCA). During his first lesson, his flight instructor James Cathers let him fly over his house in Fountain City. He says his neighborhood and the nearby soccer fields looked impressive from the air. “You could see how big the soccer fields were – they’d be a good place to land,” he said. His mom, Diana McDonald, says his bedroom is full of aviation-related books and movies and game simulators. She thinks he probably inherited his love of flying from her father, Fred Gibson, whose hobby of building and

Do you remember how much fun it was to get new school supplies when you were a child?

2012 BACK-TO-SCHOOL Spencer McDonald checks out a Cessna 172 Skyhawk while he waits for his next flying lesson. Photo by Ruth White flying rockets Fred passed down to his grandchildren. On a recent trip to Las Vegas and points west with his grandparents, Spencer was the only member of the traveling party who enjoyed an extended layover in the Las Vegas airport. “They had a complete window wall and I could see all of the runway. I just sat and watched planes the whole 10 hours,” he said. Spencer has two younger sisters, Amanda, 10, and Megan, 6, who are students at Fountain City Elementary School. His older brother Josh, 18, a Central High School senior, recently built a rocket to earn his Level 1 certification with the Rocketry Association. Soon thereafter, Spencer started researching flying, and with the help of his father, Tim McDonald, built a radio controlled plane with a sixfoot wingspan that took up his whole bedroom. “There were sheets and


sheets of wood all over his room,” Diana McDonald said. “You put so much money and effort into that thing and then you crash and it’s gone.” Spencer excels in math and science, is a member of the Beta Club and the school soccer team. He has been active in AYSO soccer most of his life and has served as a volunteer youth referee. He’s been cutting lawns and pet-sitting this summer to save money to help pay for his admittedly expensive hobby (a 30-minute flying lesson is $80). He’s working on getting his mother to allow him to ride his bicycle to Island Home (so far, without any luck). He loves military aircraft – his favorite plane is the F-15 – and he is absolutely undaunted by the dangers of flying: “There’s more of a chance you’re going to die in a car getting over here (to the airport) than in a plane,” he said.

We Need Your Help! This Year More Than Ever A donation of $10 will provide a new backpack and supplies to a very deserving Student.

Parents want their children to have everything they need for a good education, but in rural Appalachia; this privilege is sometimes an impossibility. In 1998, the Mission of Hope took on the yearly ministry of helping to provide school supplies to children living in poverty-stricken areas of rural Appalachia. Working through Elementary Schools with very high Free Lunch percentages; the Mission of Hope gathers together backpacks, glue, scissors, crayons, rulers, protractors, spiral notebooks, pens and pencils; so needy children can start the new school year with the necessary supplies. The Mission of Hope needs your help with its 2012 Back-to-School Campaign. We hope to assist over 10,500 Appalachian Children this year. Will you please help us help those in need?

If you would like to sponsor one or more children, make your tax-deductible check to Mission of Hope and send it to:

You CAN learn to manage your diabetes If you’ve been diagnosed with diabetes or pre-diabetes, you may be overwhelmed with information. Taking care of your diabetes does make a difference! You will not only feel better, but good blood sugar control can help delay and even prevent the risk of diabetes complications such as heart disease, kidney failure, blindness and nerve damage. “We give people the tools to manage their diabetes,â€? says Laurie Plachinski, supervisor of the Fort Sanders Diabetes Center. “That’s our goal.â€? Diabetes is a group of diseases characterized by high blood glucose levels that result from defects in the body’s ability to produce and/or use insulin. Diabetes affects 25.8 million Americans, or 8.3 percent of the population. Most people with diabetes, about 90 to 95 percent, have Type 2. Obesity and lack of physical exercise are two of the most common causes of Type 2 diabetes, although not everyone with the disease is overweight. At the Fort Sanders Diabetes Center, a team of certiďŹ ed diabetes educators work with each client to develop a lifestyle plan. “We provide the patient with an individualized meal plan, considering their daily schedule, food preferences and weight goal,â€? explains Plachinski.

A series of classes that contain useful, practical information is offered monthly. Meal planning is demonstrated with food models, so patients can visualize appropriate portion sizes and practice reading actual food labels. “Counting carbohydrates is always the No. 1

Activity can help control diabetes and after exercise. If your blood sugar level is either too low or too high before you begin to exercise, it is best to wait until your level improves. It is also very important to monitor your blood glucose when you exercise in unusually hot or cold conditions, since temperature changes affect how your body absorbs insulin. Hypoglycemia, or low blood sugar, usually occurs slowly, so when you exercise, it’s important to pay attention to how you are feeling. If you feel shaky, anxious, sweat more than usual or have a change in your heartbeat, you should stop exercising and do what your health provider advises to treat low blood sugar. It is a good idea to Ask your physician eat a small snack, such what types of exercise are safe ibility, such as gentle stretching as a piece of fruit, before exercisfor you.

Being active is a great way to help control diabetes. Exercise helps lower your blood sugar. During physical activity, your body uses insulin much more efďŹ ciently than it does at rest. Exercise also helps you lose weight. Being overweight makes it harder for your cells to use insulin and can lead to a condition called insulin resistance. Shedding extra pounds can help you control your glucose levels and avoid other health problems, such as heart disease, osteoarthritis and hypertension.

What kind of activity is best for me?

Should I take any safety measures?

Know your type: Diabetes differs Type 1 diabetes is a disorder in which the body does not produce insulin (a hormone that aids in moving sugar from the blood to the cells). People with Type 1 diabetes must take insulin injections to move sugar from the bloodstream. This type of diabetes is not preventable and is usually diagnosed before age 40. Type 2 diabetes occurs when the body isn’t producing enough insulin or the insulin is not efďŹ ciently moving sugar out of the bloodstream. This type of diabetes is associated with physical inactivity and obesity. Diet, exercise, weight loss and sometimes medications are the treatment for Type 2 diabetes. Approximately 85 percent of all diabetes patients have Type 2. Gestational diabetes occurs in about 4 percent of pregnancies. It usually disappears after childbirth. Gestational diabetes can often be contr trolled with dietary changes, but may require glucoseb moderating medications or insulin. If untreated, gestational diabetes can harm both mother and baby. Talk with your doctor to learn more about your diale betes type and what treatment bete is best for f you.

By Theresa Edwards The Zebra Swallowtail, which is Tennessee’s official state butterfly as of 1994, is on the almost endangered “watch list” according to Amanda Suenkel, butterfly specialist at the Knoxville Zoo. The zoo has a unique one in their butterfly habitat, a “late bloomer.” Normally, it takes 2-4 weeks for a butterfly to emerge from its chrysalis. So, when a chrysalis remained motionless for 12 weeks at the zoo, workers thought it was dead. “Randomly, one day (July 20) he popped out and surprised us—very much so,” butterfly caretaker Casey Milligan exclaimed. “He’s doing good

so far,” she said on Aug. 1. He has a bent wing preventing flight, and there are different theories of the cause. When a butterfly emerges from its chrysalis, it must hang upside down usually an hour or two, pumping up and drying its wings. Suenkel believes he did not hang upside down long enough for his wings to dry completely. A theory by Milligan is that since the butterfly remained inside the chrysalis for an extended period of time, he was unable to straighten his wing completely. This special butterfly is in a protected area of the butterfly habitat, where workers move him around as necessary to make sure his needs are met such as food.
