Tim-berrrr Complaints about TVA’s tree cutting go statewide

By Betty Bean Donna Sherwood feels good about standing up and telling the TVA board of directors how she feels about their tree cutting policies. Last week she spoke to the board about the agency’s aggressive policy, which mandates clear-cutting swaths up to 200 feet wide along high voltage easements. Sherwood and a neighbor, Jerome Pinn, filed suit against TVA in April after contractors came through Westminster Place subdivision and started marking more than 120 trees along the utility right of way for removal. She had moved to Westminster Place from States View subdivision six years ago after developers started cutting down trees and said the looming threat of losing her trees has caused her to move into a rental home. Now, she says she has had to move again.

“We’re living in Plantation Springs now because we just don’t know what’s going to happen,” she said. “They’re going take two trees from every household and our afternoon shade will be gone. “They’re even taking out saplings that were planted to replace mature trees that were at least 50 years old. This is going to happen all over TVA’s seven state area.” As of last week, Sherwood and Pinn had been joined by nine more plaintiffs, and that number could grow in the coming weeks, based on the number of people from across the state who turned out for last week’s meeting. Many of them have been in contact with tree advocate Larry Silverstein, who has battled TVA and the Knoxville Utilities Board clear-cutting policies for years. Gayle and Ben Cherry, who lost a swimming pool and a bedroom to a mudslide after TVA clear-

Coffee Break with

My grandfather. I never did really get to know him because he died in 1936, the year I was born.

Other than your parents, who has had the biggest influence on your life and why? I have a friend down the road, Lester Gann, who has a lot of influence on me. I like him real well.

I still can’t quite get the hang of…

Bill Bolinger

Bill Bolinger is known as “Karns Mayor.” He says, “They just joke around calling me that. I’m not really a mayor. It may be because we have lived here so long, and everybody knows me.” His wife, Peggy, says her sister, Tammy Crone, may have been the first one to call him “mayor.” Granddaughter Sarah Bolinger Brooks says that it is because he is so involved in the community. He always participates in the Karns Fair, drives his John Deere tractor or antique car in community parades, is active with the Karns Community Center, farms with neighbors and is an active member at Grace Baptist Church. Plus, he loves Karns! Bill was born in Madisonville then lived in Lake City. He moved to Karns at age 5 when his family’s place and others were flooded out when Norris Lake was built. He and Peggy live in the same house his parents and grandparents lived in. Their two sons, Wayne and Von, live in homes behind theirs with their families. Wayne and wife Sherry have two children, Sarah and Will. Will lives in Nashville and is married to Cali Crabtree. Von and wife Earlene have two children, Doug and Ashley. Ashley has a son, M.J. “M.J. will be our fourth generation going to Karns (schools),” Peggy said. The Bolingers had a dairy farm for many years until 1973, with about 20 to 25 cows. They also grew tobacco and corn. Bill now grows hay. He owns 40 acres (formerly 93 acres), but he farms about 200 acres including farms of neighbors such as the Butlers and Connors. He stays busy, usually working from after breakfast until dark, stopping only for meals. “He works like he’s 30, but he’s 75 years old,” Peggy said. It is harvest season, and he does a lot of hay bailing including for others. One neighbor, the Carters, donates rolled hay to Horse Haven. Sit and have a Coffee Break as you get to know Bill Bolinger:

What is your favorite quote from TV or a movie? I like cowboy (programs) like “Gunsmoke.” I can’t think of a particular quote.

Technology, computers.

What is the best present you ever received in a box? My grandfather gave me 1936 silver dollars, the year I was born, that I still have.

What are you guilty of?

What is the best advice your mother ever gave you?

Nothing. “Hard work,” son Wayne said. “He would work any 20 year old in the ground. He makes me tired just watching him.”

She taught me the importance of family. When she had a get-together, you better be there.

What is your favorite material possession? I like my John Deere tractor, and my red and white 1956 Ford. We don’t get to use the old car much, except we sometimes drive it in parades and places like that.

What are you reading currently? I like to read farm magazines. I’ve also been reading Foxfire books. The books are written by kids who talked with farmers and found out how they do things like killing hogs, making moonshine, making hominy and all kinds of things.

What was your most embarrassing moment? I don’t know on that one. Hmmm … Get this hay up for one thing. And I have to wash this house. Wayne explained what a bucket list is. Bill says he’s done just about everything. He has travelled many places with his wife, Peggy.

What is one word others often use to describe you and why? Hard-worker. His wife, Peggy, tells of how he works from sunup to sundown.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? What is your passion? Farming, but I like to fish too, when I get a chance.

With whom, living or dead, would you most like to have a long lunch?

Tues-Thurs 10am - 7pm • Fri & Sat 10am - 4pm

What is the worst job you have ever had? Working around that mud in the winter time was hard, trying to milk those cows, wading around in that mud. Man, it was awful; you could lose a boot in that mud.

What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon and why? I normally didn’t have much time to watch cartoons. I watched the Roadrunner and Wyle E. Coyote. I liked the Roadrunner because he was so fast. When things don’t work, I get irritated; when things get torn up just when it’s a bad time for that to happen.

What’s one place in Karns or Hardin Valley everyone should visit?

It used to be Roger Yarnell’s barber shop. I went to school with him, and we ran around together. He’s retired now.

What is your greatest fear? Yellow jackets. I was weed-eating the other day and got into a nest. I got stung two or three times before I could get away from them.

If you could do one impulsive thing, what would it be? I would like to travel more right here in Tennessee. There’s so much in Tennessee I’ve never seen, like to tour Memphis. One thing we’ve wanted to go to for a long time is Mule Day in Columbia, Tenn. It lasts about five days.

Nothing.

of the heavy machinery going up the hill. It ruined our neighborhood,” Gayle Cherry said. Dr. Roger Jackson, a retired Nashville physician who lives in the Green Hills area, urged the board to abandon clear-cutting and return to the less-draconian policy of selective tree management in urban areas. “Two Realtors told me my house has decreased in value $50,000 in the last two weeks,” he said, mentioning a tiny sapling TVA contractors marked for removal because

there were power lines some 80 feet above it. When he tried to persuade them to leave it there, his pleas were ignored, he said. “They told me it’s cheaper to cut it now rather than wait until it’s grown…. That little tree in 100 years couldn’t have damaged the power line.” “This is not coming from FERC (the Federal Energy Regulation Commission). This is coming from this boardroom. You people are issuing the marching orders.”

at grooming people to do the task in the way it needed to be done.” Ed was forever proud that he saw the classic mid1950s clash between UT and Georgia Tech. He told me about the time he met Elvis Presley at the Southern Railway station. He ate dinner at Ramsey’s Restaurant just about every week for a lot of years. He loved politics and always worked hard for his longtime pal Wanda Moody. He served as treasurer for a lot of candidates because he knew the rules better than anyone else. He was loyal to his friends, loved his cats and never met a stranger. After we sat down for an interview in 2004, I quoted Wormsley as saying Mr. House was a legend who didn’t know he was a legend.

When I turned my paperwork in, they told me, ‘This is in Dr. Murphy’s handwriting and it stands approved.’ I always felt like I owed Mr. House for that. “And I sat with him at UT football games for five years.” Mr. House also inspired him, “because of the way he taught his classes and the way he could relate to people.” “He was a great guy and a great teacher,” says Nathan Henry, a 1978 graduate who also served as yearbook editor. “But he was also a good friend to the students as well. There’s a fine line between being a teacher and a friend and he knew where it was.” Henry’s brother and sister had also been yearbook editors at Gibbs. “It wasn’t because it was a family thing or anything.

government TVA board needs members TVA’s board of directors, already short by three, is about to lose two more members and, on last Thursday, learned of the resignation of CEO Tom Kilgore. It’s enough to make one ask, “Who’s in charge?” By law, the board has nine directors but only six now serve. On May 18, the terms of directors Bishop William Graves of Memphis and Marilyn Brown of Atlanta expired. By law, they can continue on the board only to the end of the current session of Congress, likely to go on to December with October off for campaigning. If Graves and Brown leave the board, only four directors will remain. That’s not enough to make a quorum to conduct TVA business. The law states the board can exercise those powers necessary to assure continuity of operations along the lines established when a quorum existed, but may not direct TVA into new areas, embark on new programs or change TVA’s existing direction, according to Travis Brickey, TVA spokesperson. President Obama nominated Peter Mahurin of Bowling Green, Ky., in February 2012 for a term expiring May 18, 2016, but the Senate has not scheduled hearings on his nomination. With the national election less than 80 days off and the Senate likely to meet for only four or five weeks starting Sept. 10, it becomes much less likely that anyone would be confirmed unless action occurs in the lameduck session of Congress in November or December. Mahurin comes from the same Kentucky city as conservative Sen. Rand Paul. He heads up the Hilliard Lyons brokerage office there and is a consistent donor to Democratic candidates and causes. Very little else is known about him. If Obama wins reelection, then his nominees may have a reasonable chance of being confirmed before the end of this year. If Romney wins, then Republican senators may wish to delay any confirmations until Romney takes office on Jan. 20, 2013, and nominates his own people to the TVA board. However, it might be several months before a President Romney would get around to filling vacancies on the TVA board when he has higher profile

Victor Ashe

positions to fill first. Either Obama or Romney will have five vacancies to fill. Current board members who continue are Bill Sansom of Knoxville, the board chair whose term goes to May 18, 2014; Barbara Haskew of Chattanooga also serves until May 18, 2014. Richard Howorth, a former mayor of Oxford, Miss., serves until May 18, 2015, while Neil McBride of Oak Ridge serves until May 18, 2013. ■ The current controversy in Knox county government over the mayor’s financial disclosures and one commissioner’s arrest on Sharp’s Ridge has been a break for city government, which has escaped any serious scrutiny as the media concentrates on more current and polemical issues in the county. City government is going almost unnoticed in the current climate. The same happened when Mike Ragsdale was county mayor and controversy developed over expenses and personnel. ■ Tie vote: The City Council on Aug. 7 had one of its rare tie votes with an amendment to the proposed city charter pension changes, and Mayor Rogero cast her first vote in favor of the amendment which passed 5-4. With Mark Campen absent, the remaining council members split 4-4 with Stair, Grieve, Wallace and Della Volpe on one side and Saunders, Palmer, Brown and Pavlis on the other. Rogero voted with Saunders as she broke the tie vote. In 16 years presiding over council, I only got to vote twice to break a tie vote. It seldom happens. Otherwise, the mayor does not vote but presides at council. ■ Today (Aug. 20) at 10 a.m., Mayor Rogero will cut the ribbon on the new fence at Blount Mansion which the city built for $40,000. Constructed under the able leadership of David Brace, the fence really dresses up the historic site and rids the area of the previous ugly chain-link fence. ■ Anita Cash retires from the city after 32 years. More on her next week.

Anders or Norman for top job Two guys I like are about to tangle. It’s not a death match, but there could be sprinkles of blood on the floor. Mike Hammond is stepping down as chair of Knox County Commission, termlimiting himself in the chair, although he will continue to serve as an at-large commissioner. Vice chair Brad Anders wants to step up, but others are pushing Tony Norman. As often happens at commission, the vote could be close going into the meeting and unanimous at the end. Commissioners can sense the wind’s direction, and nobody wants to be on the losing side. Anders told me he’s running. And he sunshined a dinner meeting with Sam McKenzie to discuss the Beck Center. Hmmm. Norman said Friday he’s “available if that is the will of the commission.” He said he’s not meeting with people or lobbying. So who will win? Let’s look at the public record to detect differences and then predict how colleagues will line up.

Sandra Clark

Anders usually votes with the Chamber, the school board, the Sheriff’s Office and developers. From Karns, he’s considered “a county guy.” Norman vigorously opposed the school board’s budget. He championed restrictions on hillside development. He’s currently bugging the Chamber about how it spends its county appropriation, and he’s considered “a city guy.” “You know where I stand,” said Norman, “and I think my views represent the majority of Knox County. Others, well, may represent special interests.” Ouch! Just a few years ago, nobody would take on the Sheriff’s Office, much less when it was allied with the real estate industry and the Chamber.

Now, though, Norman has a clear shot at winning. Here’s how. The winner needs six votes. Norman and Larry Smith recently spoke fondly of Jeff Ownby while others were silent. If Norman adds Smith and Ownby to his own vote, along with Dave Wright, Amy Broyles and Sam McKenzie, then Norman wins. Anders needs to hold the “county guys” like Wright and Smith to add to his own vote and the likely votes of Richard Briggs and Hammond. This leaves Mike Brown in his usual role of “swing” vote. Anders could win without Smith and Wright if he gained Brown, Broyles and McKenzie – hence, his sudden interest in the Beck Center, which was stripped of its county funding by Mayor Burchett. Oh, yeah. Do not overlook the Burchett factor. The mayor might dust off his robo-call machine and start campaigning for Tony. He might stay neutral, but I don’t see him for Anders.

GOSSIP AND LIES ■ Richard Briggs may run against state Sen. Stacey Campfield in 2014, and the retired Army colonel, heart surgeon and county commissioner could win. ■ His candidacy will certainly boost the real estate market out west as sane citizens move into the district to oust Campfield.

Gibson promoted Nine-year Knox County Community Development employee Rebecca Gibson has been appointed director of the department by Mayor Tim Burchett. The former comm u n i t y development director, Grant Gibson Rosenberg, recently left Knox County government. The Community Development Department oversees and coordinates grants and grant-related projects ranging from defined services contracts to Homeland Security and Housing and Urban Development.

Rogero is bright spot for state Democrats Here’s the good news for Democrats: Truman Day was not held in a phone booth.

Betty Bean But they probably already know that, since a crowd of more than 300 showed up at The Foundry on a rainy night to support their party and their candidates, and to celebrate the most impressive triumph the party has had lately – Mayor Madeline Rogero. Nobody noticed that Knoxville city elections are nonpartisan, which was fair, since Rogero not only fended off a full-frontal Republican attack in the primary from candidate Ivan Harmon (complete with allegations that she was a United Nations plant intent on subjecting the city to the evil goals of Agenda 21), but also a big money runoff challenge from sort-of Democrat Mark Padgett (to whom the Agenda 21-ers migrated after the primary and who was last seen supporting Zach Wamp’s kid for Congress). Lawyer Anne McKinney got the crowd going by reprising her Front Page Follies solo “I am Mayor” (a parody of Helen Reddy’s feminist anthem “I am Woman”). Rogero stood and owned the room. It didn’t hurt that she’s shown an

Madeline Rogero at the Truman Day Dinner, with Knox County Democratic Party chair Gloria Johnson and state party chair Chip Forrester. Photo by Betty Bean abundance of muscle and moxie her first year in office by actions like tackling the city’s pension problem – something her predecessor advocated but never attempted. She was confident, funny and in charge. She was followed by state party chair Chip Forrester, who was, unfortunately, none of the above. And no wonder – he’s taken a whipping across the state since a guy named Mark Clayton snagged the party’s nomination for U.S. Senate because he got top billing on a ticket of little-known candidates listed in alphabetical order in the primary. The fourth place finisher rubbed salt into Forrester’s wounds by suing him in federal court for letting Clayton – who posed for a campaign video with a bunch of gunslingers

who looked like they were fi xing to rob the mail train and who runs around Nashville with Stacey Campfield talking about gay people – onto the ballot. The plaintiff is Larry Crim, and he figures he would have had the top spot but for the poseur Clayton. Crim accused Forrester of allowing Clayton to stay in the catbird seat to siphon votes off the other candidates and boost the chances of TV performer Park Overall, who evidently didn’t have a chance because her last name starts with an O. Before Forrester introduced the row of Democratic candidates who were patiently waiting on the sidelines, he did a Scarlett O’Hara-esque speech blasting Clayton for being into hate and conspiracy theo-

ries and pledging, “We will never put you in this position again.” It was an uncomfortable moment, but nobody threw anything. After the candidates were introduced, Rogero stood up and took over again. “If we don’t fund them, they can’t run a campaign that is credible,” said the voice of experience. “You all need to dig deep. As Democrats, if we don’t fund campaigns, we can’t win campaigns. It’s a night and day difference.” Checkbooks came out all over the room. If national Democrats are looking for a tonic for their downtrodden Red State faithful, they could do a lot worse than invite Madeline Rogero to Charlotte and let her show them how it’s done.

3-4 defense is fool’s gold TALES OF TENNESSEE | Marvin West

A

coach who might know says the Tennessee switch to a 3-4 base defense is fool’s gold. It is not magic. It may or may not pressure quarterbacks, disrupt offenses, nail runners for losses, lead to multiple turnovers and dictate the flow of games. The coach, in perfect step with fan forums and call-in radio shows, asked to remain anonymous. The coach said of course defensive alignments matter, but how you line up is no more than third in the formula for winning. First is talent. Second is execution. “If history books are correct, the gentleman who made Tennessee football famous, Neyland or Nayland, beat a lot of butts with an antiquated offensive alignment,� said the coach. “I have heard that his teams

ran the single-wing with absolute precision. He could have told opponents he was coming off tackle, pointed to the point of attack, and they couldn’t have stopped it.� This coach, not that coach, finds no fault with the three-man defensive front. Jolly good idea if you have the players to play it. Big man in the middle is critical. Smart reads necessary in gap control. Several really good linebackers make a major difference. Cover corners can save your job. Think in terms of speed, size, strength, intelligence, action, reaction and effort. Then, blitz or do whatever you do without too many big, bad blunders. Derek Dooley’s decision to bring in Sal Sunseri and copy at least some of Alabama’s 3-4 scheme was the giant move to

A note from God CROSS CURRENTS | Lynn Hutton Come to me, all you who are weary and burdened, and I will give you rest. Take my yoke upon you and learn from me, for I am gentle and humble in heart, and you will find rest for your souls. For my yoke is easy, and my burden is light. (Matthew 11:28-30 NIV) When in doubt, tell the truth. (“Hazel’s Law,� Hazel Sherwood)

half-correct Tennessee’s losing trend. There was also a need for Jay Graham. The 3-4 will go down as a great move if it works. It will also make news if it doesn’t. I am reminded of the time Phillip Fulmer bet the farm on a new offensive coordinator. That good doctor had the proper license, looked sharp, spoke wisely of modern medicine but did not produce desired results. The cure simply did not take. The patient regressed. The patient died. Friends still mourn. Sunseri is qualified. He knows plenty about the 3-4 after coaching linebackers for Nick Saban. He also knows the 4-3 from seven years of NFL defensive line work. He seems to understand young people. He appears to be a natural motivator. Good bet. Best of all, Sal is a flame-thrower who believes in the aggressive defensive philosophy Dooley decided he wants. It starts with trying to strangle quarterbacks and pressing receivers at the line of scrimmage. That does involve risks. Believe the outside perspective. What happens against North Carolina State on Aug. 31 in Atlanta and against Florida on Sept. 15

is not an unusual circumstance. Yesterday, however, I came across a small sticky note with seven words written on it. I remembered that conversation, knew that it had been taken care of, and I started to throw the paper away. But then I saw eight words, written at a different angle, up the side. “Never take the burden I can help you,� it said. No punctuation. None. (If any of my former English teachers are reading this, let me assure you that I know a semi-colon or a period should be there to separate those two main clauses. I know that.)

UT defensive coordinator Sal Sunseri talks to reporters at the indoor practice facility. Photo by Associated Press at Neyland Stadium will depend more on how the Vols compare in talent, effort and execution than on alignment. Hope the offense, aided by the new running attack, can carry both occasions. Do not expect defensive performance to be flawless. Everybody is still learning. No matter how many times coaches explain assignments, no matter how much video linebackers study, there is still the minor matter of doing it under duress.

Game speed is frightening if you must pause to ponder. Don’t just wait and watch. Contribute something. Cross your fingers and repeat after me, 3-4, 3-4, 3-4. Find three and four-leaf clovers. Throw three-fourths of a pinch of salt over your left shoulder in the general direction of Raleigh. Derek, Sal and several of us need this defensive stuff to turn into real gold, heavy, rock solid.

Just those eight words. In my handwriting. I am being absolutely honest when I say this: I have no memory of writing those words, no idea when or why I wrote them, or what they meant to me in that moment. Was it something a friend had said to me? A colleague? My supervisor? No clue. I only know that when I read them, it felt as if God were speaking directly to my heart. It was a message from the universe. It was oddly reassuring on a day that had its ups and downs. As I pondered it through the

day, I considered the fact that the note’s advice seems to run counter to Jesus’ admonition to take his yoke onto our own shoulders. It was then, and only then, that I realized the cryptic words on the paper were simply another rendering of that same idea. Jesus tells us in Matthew’s Gospel to take his yoke upon ourselves, and at the same time tells me (in my own handwriting!) to let him help me carry my burden. When we are yoked with him, he is there beside us, to share the work, to lighten the load, to “take the burden.�

Wilderness trail connects people to parks By Ruth White Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness South Loop trail was opened with a formal press conference and ribbon-cutting last week. The 35-mile, natural surface trail connects five parks and natural areas to create an outdoor biking, hiking and running venue unique to Knoxville. “Thirty-five miles of trail is such a big deal,” said Legacy Parks Foundation executive director Carol Evans. “This is a true collaborative effort between Appalachian Mountain Bike Club, Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency, Ijams Nature Center, the city of Knoxville, Knox County, Robin Easter De-

sign and Benefield-Richters,” she said, “in addition to private donors and land owners.” The Appalachian Mountain Bike Club played a huge part in developing the trails and created an 11.5 mile South Loop that is moderately easy. “We want a great first time experience on the trails so people will return,” said Evans. Trail markers along the route will be color-coded to identify the South Loop and all secondary loops. Trails will also be identified by name and difficulty rating. “There is a great variety of trail difficulty.” The Urban Wilderness is envisioned as three key sections with parks, his-

toric areas and amenities. The South Loop will connect Ijams Nature Center, William Hastie Natural Area, Marie Myers Park, The Forks of the River Wildlife Management Area and other land to feature unique rock features, mature forests, working farmland and views of the Tennessee River. Parking and trailheads for the South Loop include Ijams Nature Center, 2915 Island Home Avenue; Mead’s Quarry entrance, 3518 Island Home Pike; William Hastie Natural Area, end of Margaret Road; Anderson SchoolHead Start, 4808 Prospect Lane; Forks of the River WMA, 3140 McClure Lane;

On hand to untie the strings on bandanas and officially open the bike trail are Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, Knoxville Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis, Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero, former mayor and ambassador Victor Ashe and Legacy Parks board chair Chad Youngblood. Photos by Ruth White

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers

Making great leaders By Sandra Clark

It’s funny to hear the Leadership Academy Fellows referred to as “McIntyre’s pets,” as in “pretty soon all the principals will be McIntyre’s pets.” Appointing principals is the superintendent’s prerogative, and Knox County has had some mighty good principals and some others. Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre identified leadership development as a priority upon his arrival here. He worked with Cornerstone Foundation to secure funding for the Leadership Academy, now in its third year. Cyprès said the fellows are selected in a “very rigorous process over two months.” She calls the selection process “truly fair,” without regard to gender, ethnicity or ability to pay. All fellows are paid as assistant principals and are assigned to a mentor principal in a local school where they work four days a week. Additionally, they attend classes and develop a project at their school in which each identifies a problem and implements a solution. “We’re offering a program for prac-

I’ve helped 12 kids get scholarships and had 16 kids who went on to become teachers themselves.” This woman knows how to be a principal. At UT for three years as founding director of the Center for Educational Leadership, her comrade, colleague and sister-in-arms is Betty Sue Sparks, longtime educator who retired as supervisor of human resources for Knox County Schools. Together, Cyprès and Sparks oversee the Leadership Academy, charged with developing outstanding principals for Knox County Schools.

Start to finish in

49 Days Final

By Sandra Clark

‘A true design/build/fast track project’ “This crisis stabilization unit was built in 49 days. The architect and engineers worked with our subcontractors in the truest sense of fast tracking. Almost every element was prefabricated to some degree to allow the project to move Sandy Loy forward without delays. Working 16 hour days and seven day weeks, the project was 100 percent complete with all inspections passed on July 27 after starting on June 8. “The facility was built fast, but still has all the bells and whistles the client needs including VRF HVAC systems allowing each patient room to have total control of the temperature. “The site was surrounded by existing health facilities which meant interaction of electrical and storm water systems. Permeable concrete was used to allow the project to pass storm water requirements.” – Sandy Loy

When the state announced the closure of Lakeshore Mental Health Institute, law enforcement personnel across East Tennessee were perplexed. Where would they take those individuals who required short-term housing but did not need to go to jail? Among other options, the state contracted with Cherokee Health Systems to build a 16-bed facility in Morristown. And Cherokee called Sandy Loy at Construction Plus. “We needed to get the facility built in two months,” said Loy. “I worked a best case schedule that came out to 49 days. … I used every single construction management trick I know on this one project. The subcontractors were outstanding and we were thrilled to finish in 49 days.”

He said subcontractors worked closely in the 4,500 square feet space. Some of the work, such as wall panels, was done offsite and installed. “We had a plumber putting together pipes out in the parking lot. “Everyone had input into the original schedule, and I told them, ‘If you’re going to be on the team, help us get to the end zone.’ We had people crawling over each other. It was fun, really.” The key was the master schedule. Sandy designed a comprehensive list of jobs that had to be finished before another could start. He updated the schedule every 48 hours and shared it with subcontractors, so each knew when to show up. There was little wasted time. The building was constructed so that a second

floor can be added. Permeable concrete was used to reduce run-off. Individual heat and air systems reduced ductwork. The project was built within the requirements of the city’s anti-noise ordinance and was inspected by both local and state officials. All within 49 days. Best of all, the client was pleased with the result. Jeff Howard of Cherokee Health Systems, said, “Sandy and his team were great. They worked well with our staff, architects and sub-contractors to build a high-quality building at a reasonable cost. “In addition to the value received by this experienced and personable

team, we got great, timely results and CPI’s integrity and creativity were never in question. I highly recommend CPI.” And Sandy Loy summed it up: “Bricks and mortar don’t know the difference. (Meeting customer expectations) is about getting people in a flow that works. It’s about getting the players lined up in the right order. “Commercial construction companies can’t afford to keep a large staff on the payroll. Everybody has slimmed down, and most use subcontractors. Hiring a construction manager is the only way that works in today’s economy. This project really spoke to that.”

KCDC receives platinum for going green By Alvin Nance At KCDC, we are committed to protecting the environment and the health of our residents through green iniNance tiatives. With every new KCDC property and renovation, affordable housing in Knoxville and Knox County is “going green.” All five buildings of the Eastport project, includ-

ing the historic Eastport Elementary School, were certified Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Platinum by the U.S. Green Building Council (USGBC). LEED Platinum certification is the highest level given by the USGBC to housing initiatives that excel in green homebuilding and design. Green building includes the use of renewable building materials; energy-efficient lighting and appliances; water conservation; high-efficiency HVAC,

plumbing and irrigation systems; surface water management; and construction waste management. Though this project is not the first time KCDC has placed an emphasis on sustainability and efficiency, this is the first time we’ve achieved LEED certification status. Along with our project partners, Partners Development, BarberMcMurry Architects, Sanders Pace Architecture and Denark Construction, we completed the rigorous qualification progress, which began in the conceptual

designs for the property and carried through to the completion of the project with a thorough site evaluation. Our teamwork paid off with spectacular results. We have not only created a healthier living environment for our residents, we will decrease our longterm maintenance costs and provide cost savings through energy and water conservation. Our commitment to green building is ongoing, and this award truly showcases that dedication.
