‘Fun Fest’ at Hillside Baptist Church

Lane Kiffin revisited (again) “About the time Lane Kiffin landed in Los Angeles and used mattresses were going out in Knoxville,” Marvin West writes, “I told myself not to waste any more words on the boy coach who wanted to be Steve Spurrier.” But, Marvin says, a question was obviously poetic: Wonder where the Vols would be if Kiffin had stayed at Tennessee?

Coffee break The word that describes Kelley Grabill best is “volunteer,” not only because she loves the Vols football team, but because she is always volunteering in the Karns community. She has volunteered since her son, Rob, began playing sports at age 5, helping coach his Little League team. She was the team mom, statistician and the league secretary for several years. She organized the first ever opening day at the ball field. “You can say that got me hooked with organizing events,” she said. “I am very involved in my children’s activities.

By Theresa Edwards Hillside Baptist Church invited the community to its annual two-day “Fun Fest” Aug. 2-3 before back-to-school time. The parking lot turned into a festival, with inflatable slides and bounce house, merry-go-round,

dunking booth, basketball and sno-cones. Inside, the church provided a pizza party after Sunday service. One highlight was the chance to dunk pastor Terry Richard, at $1 donation per shot for the activity fund. “Ooh, that wa-

ter’s cold!” he said, saying that as soon as the sun warmed him up, he would get dunked again. Everyone was thankful for the sunny weather and had fun, especially Chelsey Goddard and Drake Hesseling who won bikes.

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.” Mike Wise, a special education teacher at Hardin Valley Academy, has replaced Jason Webster as assistant principal at Halls High. McIntyre said Wise did excellent work in the Great School Partnership’s Summer Bridge Program and was recommended by Halls High principal Mark Duff. McIntyre acknowledged different philosophies about leadership. “I believe it’s good to keep a principal in place for plenty of time but I also think it’s valuable for assistant principals to have a variety of experiences and broad leadership.” McIntyre praised the Charting the CourSE sessions held the week of July 30, saying it gave him a chance to talk to 4,000 Knox County educators about the new common core curriculum “and how that impacts what we’re

Coffee Break with

Kelley Grabill

The word that describes Kelley Grabill best is “volunteer,” not only because she loves the Vols football team, but because she is always volunteering in the Karns community. She has volunteered since her son, Rob, began playing sports at age 5, helping coach his Little League team. She was the team mom, statistician and the league secretary for several years. She organized the first ever opening day at the ball field. “You can say that got me hooked with organizing events,” she said. “I am very involved in my children’s activities. Kelley is married to Joe, her high school sweetheart. Rob, now 21, works in sales at Comcast. Their daughter Kerri, 15, is a sophomore at Karns High. She is the 2012 Knoxville Teen Princess and was in the Karns and Hardin Valley parades. Kerri also was first runner-up in the Karns Fairest of the Fair Miss Teen pageant. Kelley has directed Fairest of the Fair for seven years, helping it grow from two divisions to four pageants, now the biggest fundraiser for the Karns Fair and the Karns Business Association. This year, Kelley volunteered to be the Karns Fair president, since Roger Kane stepped down to take on his new duties representing the 89th District in Nashville. Erica Copeland will be the new Karns pageant director, while Kelley oversees it as executive director. “She (Erica) has a lot of talent, and I am very excited for her,” said Kelley. Kelley was also the Karns Business Association president for nearly two terms and saw attendance nearly quadruple. “It’s all about getting involved,” she said. After 9/11, she “learned to fight fires and run EMS calls with the guys.” She took over the database management for donations in 2003. And just last year she came on full time with the Karns Fire Department as the administrative assistant. Sit and have a Coffee Break as you get to know Kelley Grabill:

How long have you lived in Karns? “My family moved to Knoxville in December of 2004 when Rob was just 3 years old. I absolutely love our community and love being involved for a better community!”

What is your favorite thing about the Karns pageant? “I love the girls and the confidence they possess! They sometimes are a bit shy; but after the first pageant, they always want to come back!”

Besides the pageant, what is your favorite part of the Karns Fair?

and Order, SVU’ ... Love the intensity of ‘who did it?’ ”

“I love the dunking booth! I always ‘hit’ the button to have someone fall into the tank! I just love seeing everyone having a fabulous time; smiles everywhere!”

“Someone once told me that you can choose your path in which to live your life. One way is the wrong way . … You choose! I grew up in foster care from the age of 9. My sisters and I were thankfully together until I was 13 years old. Then we were split up. One sister chose to become a drug/social counselor, one chose not so good and I chose to not duplicate my life before 9. It worked out very well!”

Where is your favorite place for lunch? “You’d think I would say one of these great restaurants in Karns/Hardin Valley. I’m thankful we have them, but my desk is my favorite place, honestly. As much running around as I do with this or that, I appreciate the quiet time.”

What was your most fun vacation?

What advice has meant a lot in your life?

What advice do you often give others? “Chin up – be grateful, tomorrow is another day.”

“I have never been on a real vacation, ever!”

How do others describe you?

What is your favorite book and why?

“As a person who knows everyone; as a person who is involved in everything; and as a person who cannot say ‘no.’ ”

“I really enjoy the V.C. Andrews books. I get into the “family” quite easily; they become a part of my life for a bit!”

If you could have any vehicle, what would it be, including color? “I love the look of the 2004 Dodge Ram with the Hemi engine! Favorite color? That orangey-cinnamon color ... wow o wow!”

If you could have one wish come true, what would it be? “To have my diabetes go away for good!”

Who is your favorite historical character and why? “Hmmm ... I love Elvis! Is he historical?”

What irks you the most? “People who are so ‘fake.’ ”

How do you relax? “I love to crochet. I have completed two afghans this year and am working on my third. I also love to decorate and paint.”

What makes you happy?

What is your favorite television show and why?

It can be your neighbor, club leader, bridge partner, boss, father, teacher – anyone you think would be interesting to Karns/Hardin Valley Shopper-News readers. Email suggestions to Theresa Edwards, tephotos@tds.net. Include contact info if you can.

Cheers for DeeDee Trotter Former UT women’s track star and Knoxville resident DeeDee Trotter won the 2012 Olympic bronze medal in the 400-meter race.

Theresa Edwards

This was the first individual medal in her career. In 2004, she won an Olympic gold medal as part of the 4x400 relay team. She is the founder of “Test me, I’m clean,” an organization now known worldwide. ■

Cherokee Caverns hosts 300

Cherokee Caverns’ “Cool Down in the Cave” event was popular with more than 300 visitors. “We only open it to the public a few days a year,” said cave historian Jim Whidby. “It is open one Saturday in February, one Saturday in May and one Saturday in August.” This year, Cherokee Caverns will present a familyfriendly “Trick or Treating in the Cave.” Whidby says it will be different this year. “It won’t be as dark or scary.” Local businesses and “cave creepies” will

greet guests along the way and hand out candy to the kids. The path through the cave is safe, well-lit, and stroller and wheelchair friendly. Throughout the year, private group tours are arranged by appointment, preferably for 12 or more people. It is a popular place for Scouts, church groups and birthday parties. There have also been five weddings in the cave. There are 171 caves in Knox County. “This cave is the most historical and most beautiful,” said Whidby. “It is unusual to find this many pretty formations in this type of cave.” It has Copper Ridge dolomite, which is harder than the limestone often found in caves. ■

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. Those selected are paid for a year as an assistant principal, working with an experienced mentor principal (one day a week is spent in coursework with experienced practitioners). It’s all under the leadership of former HR director Betty Sue Sparks. The first two years saw 19 individuals complete the training. Of those, eight are already head principals, McIntyre said, obviously proud of these new leaders. The path to school leadership is clear. No longer is the assistant principal’s chair a pre-retirement spot for aging coaches. What’s not so clear is by what criteria the superintendent decides which principals to remove. And how fairly are these individuals treated?

government Catching up Mike Kernell, a Democrat who lost his campaign for renomination due to redistricting, retires Nov. 6 after 38 years as a state representative. 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. This will be a significant contribution to the city greenway system when completed. ■ Former City Law Director W. Morris Kizer has been appointed a special state Supreme Court justice by Gov. Bill Haslam along with four other Tennesseans. They include former Justices Mickey Barger and George Brown, retired federal district

Victor Ashe

Judge Robert Echols and Nashville attorney Andree Blumstein. Kizer was Haslam’s law director during his first term as mayor. 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. Two weekends ago he went paddling down the Watauga in Carter County one day and the Hiwassee in Polk County the next day. ■ Council member Duane Grieve is recovering well from surgery last week to repair his hernia. He plans on seeking re-election in 2013. He was a landslide winner in 2009 and a strong proponent of parks, neighborhood values and sound fiscal practices.

Miller time Running to make a difference Volunteering comes naturally to Jerome Miller, who started coaching youth sports years ago at Cedar Bluff Farragut Optimist Club events – football and basketball – and served on the board of directors.

Betty Bean Even after his children grew up, he stayed involved, drawing on his experience running track in high school and college to volunteer with the Knoxville Track Club and to become track coach at Farragut Middle School. When a ruptured Achilles tendon slowed him physically, he chaired the town of Farragut’s Community Center Search Committee and has now been nominated to serve on the Knox County Library Advisory Board.

Becoming the Democratic nominee for the 14th District state House of Representatives seat is another way of continuing that involvement, Miller said. He will face Republican nominee and incumbent state Rep. Ryan Haynes in November. “My emphasis is on the economy, education and the environment,” he said. “Gov. Haslam recently met with university officials around the state. What I would like to suggest is that if you had an internship required in every major, employers would say, ‘Hmmmmmm. They’ve got experience, and that’s a potential hire.’ “That’s what I look at in terms of why I’m running. You can use education to create the right environment to build up the economy. I want to see this district prosper. “Environment is one of the areas of focus in my campaign – I’m also talking about quality of life. That’s where I can make a difference. I think it’s important to have a broad background.

Jerome Miller Photo by K.R. Redmond I’ve got knowledge, but it’s not just the knowledge, I have the experience, and I’ve always had a desire to serve and to make a difference in my community,” Miller said. “That started with getting involved in the community when my kids started school. I wanted to be involved in my kids’ experiences, as well as to support them as needed. When somebody would say, ‘Who wants to volunteer?’ My hand would go up. I was always saying ‘What can I do to help?’ ” It’s not like he had nothing else to do. A mechanical engineer by training (he worked his

Grassroots campaigning My first experience with grassroots politics came in the 1970s at the hands of some wonderful and inspiring women who have since passed away. Mickey Childress, Hazel Showalter, Joann Clark, Lois Seymour and Katherine Shook pretty much ran Republican Party politics in the suburbs west of downtown. Politics seemed much nicer then. Nowadays it feels as if we have lost our way. Or maybe it’s just our civility we’ve lost. It’s hard to believe, but the women actually put on their pearls and nibbled little sandwiches and sipped punch at afternoon “meet the candidate” events then called “teas.” I don’t recall ever seeing any actual tea, but we went to so many of these events that sometimes we would wager on what color the punch would be at the next one. It probably looked simplistic, but these volunteers also worked like dogs to get their candidates elected. They were anything but naïve. That bunch of women was uppity before most folks could spell uppity, and proud of it.

Anne Hart

They organized every voting precinct in their districts to the extent that they could pretty much predict the turnout within a few votes. They knew how just about everyone would vote. In those days, people told the truth when asked who they favored. The women divided up neighborhoods so that each had an overall chair. And then they named a captain for each block. The job of the block captain was to personally contact every person on her block – sorry, fellas, but I just don’t recall any men being involved in any of this – to encourage votes for the chosen candidates. If the contact gave the right answer, they were encouraged to contact five (or 10, depending on their level of enthusiasm) to ask for their votes and ask each of those to contact that many more.

All of this was carefully tracked and followed up with phone calls, invitations to meet the candidate and offers of rides to the polls on election day. It worked. And it’s apparently pretty much the way things were done in the new 89th House District race that resulted in the win by relative political newcomer Roger Kane over former sheriff and political powerhouse Tim Hutchison. All of the polls showed Hutchison winning – those taken months before election day and those taken just a couple of days before. All of the “street talk” was that he would win. The pundits agreed. Despite that, Hutchison didn’t slack off. He worked hard, but Kane ran what is now being called a “stealth campaign,” with volunteers meeting at his house weekly for six months to plan strategy and then cover the district on Saturdays to knock on doors, make phone calls and ask for votes. No stealth about it. It was nothing but an old-fashioned grassroots political campaign.

way through North Carolina A&T State University to become the first college graduate in his family), Miller, who grew up in Asheville, N.C., and his wife, Cynthia, came to Knoxville in 1978 after he accepted a job at Union Carbide (now the B&W Y-12 plant) in Oak Ridge. Today, he oversees liquid waste operations there and is responsible for treatment of industrial wastewater to ensure that discharge limits are met and that the facilities are maintained and operated correctly. He has a private consulting business on the side, and received the B&W Small Business Advocate of the Year award in 2010. But he thinks he can do more: “I can make a difference in the way the Legislature is being run. It’s divided. I have experience with large businesses and small corporations. I can work with the right side of the aisle and left side of aisle. That’s why I got that small business award. I can work with people to solve common problems, which is not what we are seeing now. You don’t hear the emphasis on jobs. I believe I can make that difference.”

Her $77,000 salMarilyn Roddy ary is funded through the Race to the Top grant and she will be based at the L&N STEM Academy. Since Knox County is the lead agency for the regional STEM project, Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre approved the appointment last week, saying it is a role that fits well with Roddy’s skills.

The KARST hub is a regional partnership of educational, business, scientific, and research institutions and groups organized to promote and support high quality STEM education in the region. It includes 19 school districts and 11 counties that surround Knox County. KARST is part of the Tennessee STEM Innovation Network, designed with “platform schools” that connect the region and establish best practices for STEM. The L&N STEM Academy is one of six platform schools across the state.

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.

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.

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.

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.

‘Mommy’s Little Princess’ tea party By Theresa Edwards “Mommy’s Little Princess” fourth annual motherdaughter tea party coordinated and hosted by Karns resident Andrika Langham was held at Gettysvue Country Club on Aug. 4. It all started when a group of moms and their daughters in dance class thought it would be a fun luncheon, getting dressed up wearing dresses, hats and gloves. Their first tea was at the Apple Cake Tea Room. The event moved to Gettysvue the second year when the group expanded. Anyone who knows Andrika Langham stands with daughters Landyn and Lennox.

With HealthSpring,

Blake McCoy shows his family – wife, Candy, and son, Kyan – the display for Independent Insurance Consultants at the Caregivers Expo. IIC was one of the major sponsors for the event.

Caring for the caregivers By Sherri Gardner Howell There were no “off limits� topics at the inaugural Caregivers Expo on Saturday, Aug. 4, at Cokesbury Center. A panel of experts took questions from the 160-170 participants that ranged from how to set up a power of attorney to how to battle losing faith in God. It is a group with a lot on their hearts, says organizer Bob Coyne. Coyne, who has a non-profit business as a caregiver facilitator, partnered with a committee headed by Carol Hollar, Kim Owen and Veronica Gibson to bring the expo to fruition. “It was a roaring success,� says Coyne. “We had a good crowd of approximately 170 people and had 40 vendors with great displays. From the keynote address by Edward Harper to the questions for the panel to the final presentation and remarks by Bob Kesling, everyone was engaged and learning.�

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

Friends Vivian Akins-Borge, admissions director at NHC Place Assisted Living, and Carolyn Neil, who is with Elder Advocates, talk during a lunch break at the Caregivers Expo at Cokesbury Center on Saturday, Aug. 4. Coyne’s involvement in conducting seminars came from his own personal experience of caring for his wife for six years. “Everyone involved has a story to tell,� says Coyne, “so everyone has their hearts in helping caregivers.� Kesling was presented an award honoring his role as a caregiver in his own family as well as his work to bring

community attention to Alzheimer’s and other diseases that affect the elderly. Coyne says there are plans to make the Caregiver Expo an annual event. “There is such a need for support and information on caring for our loved ones,� he says. “We need a big way to get the message out, and this looks to be a good vehicle.�

From Tots to Teens Home products designed for kids Modern’s Millie Modern Supply's design consultant + remodeling expert

Storage products for everything! Sometimes it’s the little extras that simplify life and free up more fun time. Sounds crazy, but adding convenient storage features to existing cabinets—pull-out shelves, drawer organizers and appliance lifts—saves time, maximizes storage, and saves your knees. No more diggin’ through a bottom cabinet. Here a few of my faves! Blind corner cabinets are the worst organized in the kitchen. You know, they’re the cave-like cabinet where you store the juicer you never use. Now, there’s a variety of swing-out shelving units made just for blind cabinets. Useful space…how smart is that? Where do you hang your damp kitchen towels? Oh no, don’t say over the stove or dishwasher handle! A pull-out towel hanger mounted in a base cabinet is easy to install and looks sooo much more upscale! Make recycling handy with a base cabinet slide-out that holds one to four bins. They’re also really cool germ-resistant microfiber pull-out bags with handles—just lift and you’re off to the recycling center. For those of us who are antiwrinkle ironing freaks, a wallmounted ironing board is the berries! It quickly drops down and even swivels! Presto, you’re looking snazzy and on your way in a snap. Ever had a water leak under your sink? OMG! It can turn costly in an instant. Under-sink drip trays are designed to protect the bottom of your cabinet by holding water. This is an inexpensive way to potentially save big bucks! Finally, drum roll please… the ultimate storage accessory… the beverage cooler! Everyone deserves a little luxury…and a cool glass of vino!

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

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

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.”

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.

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

2012 BACK-TO-SCHOOL

We Need Your Help!

Judy Hubbs, owner of The Adorable Child in Farragut. Photo by S. Carey

From her family to yours By Shannon Carey Judy Hubbs is a selfdescribed nurturer. In her first career, she served as a NICU nurse, helping premature babies make it through those first months. Six years ago, she decided to take a chance and make her dream of owning a children’s boutique come true. Now, she owns and operates The Adorable Child consignment boutique in Farragut. To say that Hubbs loves children would be an understatement. When her three adult children – Angelique, Christian and Brendan – started leaving the nest, Hubbs and her husband, Brad, adopted two little girls from Viet-

nam, Caroline and Victoria. Hubbs decorated the two Adorable Child dressing rooms in tribute to the girls. Hubbs enjoys dressing children, and that love is reflected at The Adorable Child. The high-end consignment items are neat, clean and organized. The new and custom items are hand-picked by Hubbs at market each season. Hubbs and her staff are friendly and willing to help. “I get to know my customers well,” she said. “My main thing is building the relationships. They’re like a family to me, and they keep coming back.” In fact, in six years Hubbs has seen her cus-

tomers all the way from infancy to back-to-school. Hubbs finds other ways to nurture people. She takes the time to give back to the community, donating clothing and backto-school items to local ministries and families in need. When reflecting on the leap of faith it took to open The Adorable Child, Hubbs says, “I thought, ‘I’ll never know if I don’t try.’ ” Turns out her leap of faith was a good one. One and a half years ago, Hubbs expanded the store. The Adorable Child has grown into the largest children’s consignment boutique in East Tennessee. Info: 671-6698.

Clarification In last week’s story on Julia JonesBarham, we stated that Jones-Barham was the first coordinator of the Farragut Folklife Museum. She is the first paid professional museum coordinator. Mary Nell McFee was the first volunteer curator, and Doris Woods Owens was volunteer director.

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:

NEWS FROM PAIDEIA ACADEMY OF KNOXVILLE

Paideia welcomes new teachers

Lea Kelly

Timothy Enloe

Amy Reed

David Denison

Paideia Academy is excited to announce four new additions to its faculty. Lea Kelly will be joining the grammar school faculty as the new 4th grade teacher. She and her husband, Damon, have been in Christian ministry for over 22 years. Currently they serve at Cedar Springs Presbyterian Church where Damon is on the pastoral staff, and Lea has worked in the weekday school as well as women’s ministries. A graduate of Bryan College and a long-time Paideia parent, she is well-grounded in the Christian worldview training that is foundational to Paideia’s program. “God is inviting me to take on the incredible treasure of bringing my teaching gifts to pour into the hearts of 4th grade students,� Kelly said.

Timothy Enloe joins Paideia Academy as the Latin instructor. Paideia Academy students study Latin from 3rd grade to 10th grade, so the school desires teachers that are not only skilled in the mechanics of the language but who also possess a passion for its use in classical education. Enloe has been involved in classical education in various capacities, chiey Latin instruction, for eight years. He received his B.A. in Liberal Arts and Culture from New Saint Andrews College, and his M.A. in Humanities from the University of Dallas. In both degree programs he focused on Classical and Medieval History & Literature and Rhetoric. Having recently arrived in the Knoxville area from California, he and his family are quickly

becoming part of the school community where he can pursue his love of Latin and also serve as a fellow in Paideia’s Nicene Hall. Amy Reed will be teaching and developing the school’s art program. After graduating from Karns High School and completing a B.A. in Art Education from Carson-Newman College, she went on to earn an M.S. in Art Education from the University of Tennessee. As a Knoxville native, Reed has followed Paideia Academy’s growth while teaching art in various local schools for over ten years. Her service to the art community has also involved serving on the Knoxville Museum of Art Educator’s Committee and participating in regional art competitions.

David Denison will be heading Paideia Academy’s music program. Mr. Denison holds a B.A. and B.S. from Lee University and M.S. from the University of Tennessee. From the moment he ďŹ rst came into contact with Paideia Academy, Denison knew that he wanted to teach at this school. He will be building a comprehensive music program including music theory, vocal training, exposure to various instruments, and music history and appreciation. Denison desires to impart a solid understanding and appreciation of the gift of music and its role in Western Civilization. He says he believes in “the value of studying music, particularly the heritage and history of Western music and the value of teaching it.â€?

HEALTH & LIFESTYLES NEWS FROM PARKWEST, WEST KNOXVILLE’S HEALTHCARE LEADER • TREATEDWELL.COM • 374-PARK

Coping with ‘senseless tragedy’ hardest on children Long after the final shots rang out from the assault weapons of an orange-haired James E. Holmes inside the Century 16 movie theater in Aurora, Colo., the echo of that deadly act will long linger in the ears, hearts and minds of the terrified moviegoers inside. The cost of what Holmes took at that midnight premiere of a “Batman” movie goes far beyond his deadly toll of 12 fatalities and 58 injured. In addition to lives taken, Holmes also snatched away the innocence, security and dreams of those left behind. Just as it was in April 2011 when a mentally disturbed gunman shot and killed two innocent people outside the discharge door at Parkwest Medical Center, the July 20 shootings in Colorado will wreak havoc in the lives of those left behind for years to come. Whenever tragedies occur – whether man-made or natural – making sense of it all borders on impossible; children and teens, in particular, are the most vulnerable. Feelings of fear, confusion and insecurity manifest themselves in myriad ways as they struggle to cope. “Whether a child has personally exper ienced trauma, has seen the event on television or merely heard it discussed by adults, it is important for parents and educators to be informed Dr. John Kupfner and ready to help if stress reactions begin to occur,” said Dr. John Kupfner, a psychiatrist at Peninsula Outpatient Center. “Children respond to trauma in many different ways. Some may have reactions very soon after the event; others may do fine for weeks or months and then begin to show troubling behavior. Knowing the signs that are common at different ages can help parents and teachers recognize problems and respond appropriately.” Among preschoolers, children ages 1-5 find it particularly hard to adjust to change and loss, Kupfner said. These youngsters have not yet developed their own coping skills, so they must depend on parents, family members and teachers to help them through difficult times. Changes in eating and sleeping habits are common, as are unex-

Traumatic events, regardless of the cause, can have long-lasting affect on young children. plainable aches and pains. Other symptoms to watch for are disobedience, hyperactivity, speech difficulties and aggressive or withdrawn behavior. Preschoolers may tell exaggerated stories about the traumatic event or may refer to it repeatedly. “Very young children may regress to an earlier behavioral stage after a violent or traumatic event,” said Kupfner. “Preschoolers may resume thumb sucking or bedwetting, or may become afraid of strangers, animals, darkness or ‘monsters.’ They may cling to a parent or teacher, or become very attached to a place where they feel safest.” Children ages 5-11 may have some of the same reactions that younger children have. They also may withdraw from playgroups and friends, compete more for the attention of parents, fear going to school, allow school performance to drop, become aggressive or find it hard to concentrate. These children also may return to more childish behaviors, such as asking to be fed or dressed. Children age 12-14 are likely to have vague physical complaints when under stress and may abandon chores, school work or other responsibilities they previously handled. Though they may compete vigorously for attention from parents and teachers, they also may withdraw, resist authority, become disruptive at home or in the classroom, or begin to experiment with high-risk behaviors such as alcohol or drugs.

Medic Blood Drive scheduled Tuesday in the Bistro The need for blood never takes a vacation or holiday. Why not do your part and donate blood? Just visit the Medic Blood Drive 7 a.m. to 4 p.m. Tuesday at Parkwest Medical Center’s Boulevard Bistro, 9352 Park West Boulevard, and share the gift of life. Fasting is not required, and all donors receive a free T-shirt and cholesterol evaluation. For more information, call 524-3074 or visit www.medicblood.org.

“These young people are at a developmental stage in which the opinions of others are very important,” said Kupfner. “They need to be thought of as ‘normal’ by their friends and are less concerned about relating well with adults or participating in family activities they once enjoyed.” In later adolescence, teens may experience feelings of helplessness and guilt because they are unable to assume full adult responsibilities as the community responds to the traumatic event. Older teens may deny the extent of their reactions to the traumatic event. “Reassurance is the key to helping children through a traumatic time,” said Kupfner. “Very young children need a lot of cuddling, as well as verbal support. Answer questions about the event honestly but do not dwell on frightening details or allow the subject to dominate family or classroom time indefinitely. Encourage children of all ages to express emotions through conversation, writing or artwork and to find a way to help others who were affected by this event.” Kupfner also urges parents to try to maintain a normal household or classroom routine and encourage children to participate in recreational activity. “Temporarily reduce your expectations about performance in school or at home, perhaps by substituting less demanding responsibilities for normal chores,” he said. “Acknowledge that you, too, may have reactions associated with the traumatic

event and take steps to promote your own physical and emotional healing.” For some children, more active interventions may be required, particularly if they were more directly affected by the traumatic event. The family, as a unit, might consider counseling. Traumatic events often reawaken a child’s fear of loss of parents (frequently a child’s greatest fear) at a time when parents may be preoccupied with their own practical and emotional difficulties. Families may choose to permit temporary regressive behavior. Several arrangements may help children separate gradually after the agreed-upon time limit: spending extra time with parents immediately before bedtime, leaving the child’s bedroom door slightly ajar and using a nightlight. Conversely, many parents have their own fears – fears of leaving a child alone after a traumatic event or other fears they may be unable to acknowledge. “Parents often are more able to seek help on the children’s behalf and may, in fact, use the children’s problems as a way of asking for help themselves and other family members,” said Kupfner. “It’s important to recognize the need for help in both our children and in ourselves. It’s the first step in reclaiming some of the life we knew before the tragedy.” For more information or to schedule an appointment, call 865-970-9800.

Tips for talking to children after a traumatic event After a traumatic event, it’s important that parents and other caregivers recognize any difficulties children may be going through. The best way to do that is by talking to them. Here are some tips from Peninsula psychiatrist Dr. John Kupfner for talking with children after a traumatic event: ■ Provide children with opportunities to talk about what they are seeing on television and to ask questions. ■ Do not be afraid to admit when you cannot answer all of their questions. ■ Answer questions on a level the child can understand. ■ Provide ongoing opportunities for children to talk. They probably will have more questions as time goes on. ■ Use this as an opportunity to establish a family emergency plan. Feeling that there is something you can do may be very comforting to both children and adults. ■ Allow children to discuss other fears and concerns about unrelated issues. This is a good opportunity to explore these ideas also. ■ Monitor children’s television watching. Some parents may wish to limit their child’s exposure to graphic or troubling scenes. To the extent possible, be present when your child is watching news coverage of the event. It is at these times questions might arise. ■ Help children understand that there are no bad emotions and that a wide range of reactions is normal. Encourage children to express their feelings to adults (including teachers and parents) who can help them understand their sometimes strong and troubling emotions. ■ Be careful not to scapegoat or generalize about any particular cultural or ethnic group. Try not to focus on blame. ■ In addition to the tragic things they see, help children identify good things, such as heroic actions, family who unite and share support, and the assistance offered by people throughout the community.

Chaplain Bob East receives a volunteer spirit award from Bob Crane, area coordinator for East Regional Tennessee Emergency Management Agency. Photo by T. Edwards of TEPHOTOS.com

Bob East, 60-year volunteer By Theresa Edwards East Regional Tennessee Emergency Management Agency awarded Chaplain Bob East for his lifetime of dedication serving as a volunteer for more than six decades. The award was signed by director William S. Worth and area coordinator Bob Crane. Crane shared East’s favorite quote: “If not you, who? If not now, when? If not here, where?” East served in the U.S. Navy four years, where he received the nickname “Baker Bob.” He helped test the atomic bomb at the end of World War II. Afterward, he graduated from the Southern Missionary College in 1954. From 1954 to 1989, East worked on administering education for the Seventh Day Adventist Church. In 1960, at age 30, he was diagnosed with multiple sclerosis. He referred to it as “the great crippler.” East started the “Begin Again” organization to help others with MS. In addition, he wrote two books, created a CD of his experiences and developed therapies to aid others with MS. His philosophy is that health is wealth. He now has videos on YouTube teaching healthy eating and how to juice vegetables. “It is impressive what he has done,” said Crane. Angie Minor commended East for his accomplishments. “In my opinion, Bob East is the reason we have a Northeast Chapter of VOAD (Voluntary Organizations Active in Disasters). Bob’s passion, dedication, persistence and guidance led the way to ensure there is a system in place in our end of the state to be better prepared for a disaster situation. “His tireless efforts and unending passion for serving people make Bob stand tall and strong among us. A simple thank you is not enough. We owe this man,” said Minor.

Watch this! 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. A feeder resembling a birdbath contains watermelon, bananas and orange Gatorade. The other food source is the flowering butterfly bush providing sweet nectar. Interestingly, butterflies sense taste through their feet. The other Zebra Swallowtails are gone from the zoo, as they usually live only 2-6 weeks, according to Suenkel. So, if you want to see this one, hurry on over to the Knoxville Zoo.

NEWS FROM PROVISION HEALTH & WELLNESS

Mike Wigger

Personalize your program Stop me if you have heard this before… “I know I should be getting regular exercise, but there are so many different programs out there with specific guidelines and protocols… I don’t know what they mean. “Are they going to benefit me? Will they hurt me if I don’t do them right? “I’m overwhelmed; I guess I will just stick to my regular old routine.” This may be something you have not only heard, it could be something you have said yourself! While we are constantly taking advice about our fitness routines from magazines and talk show hosts, when is the last time you took some advice from yourself? Be honest, do you really enjoy your fitness routine? We work hardest for the things we enjoy and your fitness program should be no exception. After all, you get out what you put in; if your daily exercise is lackluster and haphazard, then so are the results. No two people are exactly alike. Therefore, no two fitness programs should be the same. The best resource for developing a fitness program that is unique to your goals, skills, abilities and even limitations is you! Take the time to try new things in your fitness routine. Have you ever taken a Zumba class? Yoga? Pilates? Spin? Have you ever tried resistance training? You can’t say you don’t like something until you have given it a fair chance. Who knows, you may find a new niche that will keep you motivated to work harder than ever, and the results to prove it! Keeping your fitness program fresh is beneficial not only to your body but it also provides a new avenue to show some creativity; your body and mind will thank you.

No more aches and pains! Free information (and great snacks, too) By Sandra Clark Provision Health & Wellness is sponsoring a free half-day event Wednesday, Aug. 22, to introduce a way to battle back against the aches and pains that come with aging.

Feeling overwhelmed by all the mixed messages out there about food? Frustrated and just wanting to figure out what works for you? Every person’s body is unique. Each of us have a different biochemistry that determines how our bodies use food and what food we like and don’t like. Ultimately, our bodies are communicating with us all the time, and our job is to listen, identify what they’re asking for, and respond appropriately. We work with people who are sick and tired of feeling sick and tired - be that chronic headaches, digestive upset, low energy levels, extra weight, or generally not feeling good. Together, we’ll unravel the complexity around food, listen to your body’s signals, and give it what it needs to heal itself, shed pounds, and truly thrive!

Come meet the folks you’ve read about here. Meet Chief Dietitian Casey Peer who will talk about good nutrition (and share some great, healthy snacks). Meet Mike Wigger, wellness coordinator and exercise specialist,

who will talk about ways to reduce chronic inflammation with diet and exercise. And from 11 a.m. until noon, participants can exercise with a choice of low- or no-impact classes including Chair Yoga or a Functional

Fitness and Zumba Gold combo. The event is designed for Baby Boomers, although you can bring your mom or dad. Definitely bring a friend and call now to reserve a spot. 232-1414.
