The ghost upstairs Hauntings at the Baker-Peters house By Wendy Smith

Bulldog Band brings home the Everett Music Award from Georgia. See page A-2

Confederate soldier Abner Baker came home from the war looking for trouble, and he found it. According to those who frequent his former home, the Baker-Peters house at the corner of Peters Road and Kingston Pike, Abner continues to make mischief today.

bner Baker was the son of Dr. Harvey Baker, who built the antebellum home on a large farm in 1840. Dr. Baker was murdered by Union troops in 1863, and the most reliable account of his death appeared in the Knoxville Daily Register. The story reports that Dr. Baker, who was rumored to be sympathetic to the Confederate cause, was confronted in his yard by a Union soldier, who threatened him with a gun. Baker went into the house and locked the doors, but it was soon surrounded by troops who demanded that the men of the house surrender. Mrs. Baker told the soldiers repeatedly that her husband was the only man in the house, and he would surrender if they stopped firing. But the soldiers continued to shoot through windows, and eventually broke into the house and made their way up the stairs. Baker was shot and killed when he opened the door to confront his assailants. But that wasn’t the end of the bloodshed. Steve Cotham, historian and manager of the McClung Historical Collection, confirms the story that Abner Baker returned to town in 1864, possibly seeking revenge for his father’s

death. He killed a Union officer, thought to be a man named William Hall, near the Knox County courthouse. Later that day, he was forcibly removed from the jail and hanged by a mob. The Baker-Peters house is now owned by Larry Tragresser, who runs a dental practice out of the first floor. A door in his office with two holes is supposedly the same door Union troops shot through when they confronted Dr. Baker. Some of the customers at Baker Peters restaurant, which occupies the second floor, think that Abner’s unsettled spirit has never left the old house. Events Coordinator

David Poe says most employees, as well as a number of customers, have had strange experiences in the restaurant. Eric and Johnna Dangle recall a time when they were sitting at the bar in the early evening with two other customers when Eric happened to look up at the exact moTo page A-3

By Wendy Smith Property owners who attend the annual Orchid Awards, presented by Keep Knoxville Beautiful, are hoping for a flower. But those who neglect their property may walk away with an onion, instead. The 30th annual awards dinner was held last week at The Foundry. Bruce Wheeler, director emeritus of the Chancellor’s Honors Program at UT, was the keynote speaker. He explained how Knoxville’s industrial boom in the late 19th century came with a price. “We sacrificed beauty for profit.” In 1947, a newspaper reporter declared Knoxville the ugliest city in America. The comment resulted in a push to improve the city’s aesthetics during the 1950s. The Dogwood Arts Festival was established as part of the effort. Wheeler used racing terminology to characterize how far the city has come. “Knoxville is ‘winning in the turns’ as the place is turning around, from the edge of the city, to the very center of the city.” The East Tennessee Community

Whittington Creek art show is lively fun The Whittington Creek Art Show, held at the neighborhood clubhouse last weekend, was made more festive by perfect weather and live music performances. Lisa Kurtz used to host the event at her home but has turned the clubhouse into a gallery for two years now. There was plenty of room for the show’s 24 artists, who were chosen through an application process.

West Knoxville artist Mike Taylor visits with customer Caroline Hanson, owner of Mojoe’s Trailside Coffee House on Sutherland Avenue, at the Whittington Creek Art Show.

“Not everybody is professional,” she says. “I like to give those people something, to mentor them a little bit.” Kurtz, who is a potter herself, wants the show to be different each year, and only a handful of artists were repeats. West Knoxvillian Mike Taylor, who paints whimsical cartoons of dogs, was a new participant. Taylor started his own graphic design business in 1995. A few years later, he combined two loves – cartooning and painting – and created his whimsical “doodlewags.” The decision to focus on dogs was a nobrainer for him. “They’re great. They make you feel good.” Taylor also does pet portraits. To see his work, check

Lee calls herself a “slack-jaw” cook, but says she spent hours in the kitchen testing each of the recipes. She spent even more time editing the book and says that was the most

difficult part of the publishing process. She has tips for those who want to grow their own figs. She recommends brown turkey figs, which are available at local home improvement stores, and says the plants need full sun. “They’re like tomatoes. You have a few, then, all of a sudden, you have hundreds.” The book is available at Amazon and Barnes and Noble. The Knoxville Writer’s Group meets at 11:30 a.m. on fourth Wednesdays at Naples. ■

Lewis Cosby joins PBA By Larry Van Guilder County Commission has confirmed Mayor Tim Burchett’s appointment of Lewis Cosby to the Public Building Authority’s board of directors. Burchett could not have made a better choice.

Analysis Years from now, thousands of local politicos will claim “they were there” in August 2007 when an ill-advised remark by former Knox County Mayor Mike Ragsdale transformed a retired CPA and business owner from con-

cerned citizen to the county’s premier political watchdog. As Cosby concluded his presentation to County Commission about the problems with the mayor’s accounting practices that afternoon, Ragsdale – sotto voce – muttered “showboat.” It was Knox County’s version of the shot heard ’round the world. And while those of us sitting on press row were among the few to actually hear the mayor and witness Cosby’s justifiably indignant reaction, Ragsdale’s mouthing of the word was replayed (in slow motion, no less) to thousands on the local news later that evening. Ragsdale gave Cosby

ment two wineglasses shot off a rack above the bar and smashed into the wall. No one, including the bartender, was near the glasses, he says. There are several pendant light fi xtures in the restaurant, and occasionally, one will swing. Some attribute the movement to nearby air vents. But all of the fi xtures are near vents, and only one moves. Strange events are common enough that restaurant regulars no longer try to explain them. “Everybody just looks at each other and says, ‘Abner,’ ” Eric Dangle says. Robert Smith says similar phenomena occurred when the building was home to Hawkeye’s II in the 1980s. He recalls hearing loud, unexplained sounds coming from the attic. Cus-

tomers also reported getting locked in a bathroom that, at the time, had no lock on the door. “Do things happen every night? No. But I’ve seen things I cannot explain. It doesn’t really scare me – it intrigues me.” Smith plans to be in attendance at a séance that will be held in the restaurant at midnight on Oct. 31. Medium Steve Bishop will conduct the event. Poe says anyone can attend, but Bishop reserves the right to exclude anyone he deems disrespectful. While he appreciates the publicity the restaurant receives from having a resident ghost, Poe says it’s a double-edged sword. “I’d rather be known for our great steaks than our ghost.”


ers. Cosby’s tireless probing alerted the public to such questionable practices as the mayor’s “hospitality fund” and pricey outings on the taxpayers’ dime. But no one should mistake Cosby’s expertise as an independent investigator as a sign that he lacks the skills and the spirit to cooperate with others. His service on the county’s Ethics Committee demonstrated clearly enough that he is a team player, a trait that he’ll bring to the Lewis Cosby PBA’s board. He also unselfishly shared his time and his knowledge with this reporter fame which he had neither and other media representasought nor coveted, and in tives as we struggled to unthe process created a relent- tangle the skeins of the forless critic of the adminis- mer administration’s books. tration. But what was bad “Lewis brings a wealth for the mayor was a boon of experience to the table, for Knox County taxpay- including an extensive pri-

vate-sector business background that will inform his actions on the PBA board. Without a doubt, he was the right choice for this most recent appointment,” Burchett said. “In recent years, he has shown his willingness to hold government accountable, and I am confident that he will continue to do just that.” Cosby is the right man at the right moment. The PBA has grown exponentially since its establishment, and inevitably questions about its role and its reach have multiplied. As a member of the board, Cosby’s expertise will prove invaluable in answering those questions and helping to guide the organization in a direction that provides the greatest benefit to Knox County taxpayers.

Things that go ‘Huh?’ in the night Welcome to a special Halloween edition of Mr. Answer Man’s answers to the questions that keep you up at night. Young children and people with heart conditions should avoid today’s session. Q: Mr. Answer Man, I hear the school system is spending $750,000 to supply students with something called “isotonic water.” What is that? Could this be a Marxist plot to corrupt our children’s precious bodily fluids? Sign me, “Scared.” A: Dear Scared: You have every right to be frightened. Fittingly, “isotonic” is an English transliteration of Egyptian hieroglyphics discovered on the tomb of King Tut: iso, “costs a lot;” and tonic, “water with stuff added to it.” It’s fitting because water was a scarce commodity in the Egyptian desert, and isotonic water was reserved for the Pharoahs. Commissioner Tony Norman, who pursues Egyptology as a sideline, noted last week that, “Kids want a whole lot of things.” Norman added: “Just because they demand it doesn’t mean we have to supply it.” School officials countered that they want to provide “attractive items students are interested in.” Besides, the markup is 250 percent, better than double the profit realized by Egyptian traders during Tut’s reign. But what will students “demand” next? Free bus rides? No school on Christmas Day? Who knows where this will end. Q: Mr. Answer Man, maybe it’s just because Halloween is approaching, but I’m having a recurring nightmare about the county going back into business with a vendor some say owes taxpayers hundreds of thousands of dollars. Am I losing my mind? A: You seem perfectly normal to me – it’s the county’s sanity that’s in question. Recently, Commissioner “Our” Larry Smith summed up his fears about the county’s contract with Nature’s Best Organics LLC, also known as “the same guys who operated Natural Resources Recovery and got sued by Brad Mayes.” Smith said, “Guys, if we vote for this we have our heads in the sand. They screwed us once (and) they’ll try to do it again.” With a nod to the supernatural, Norman described the situation as “a lawyer’s heaven (but) … our purgatory,” and said there was no recourse other than letting the courts sort it out. “They’re tainted, and we shouldn’t be doing business with them,” Norman added, before voting for the contract. Mr. Answer Man’s assessment: “The horror … the horror.” (Thank you, Marlon Brando.) Q: Last week Commissioner Sam McKenzie said he had a hard time justifying a 1.5 percent pay increase over a period of four years for county employees. What’s your take? A: Mr. Answer Man’s sources tell us that County Mayor Tim Burchett and his staff, ever mindful of the Halloween season, arrived at the percentage by bobbing for apples. Chief of staff Dean Rice grabbed 1 1/2 Granny Smiths, and the rest is history. There is no truth to the scurrilous rumor that Commissioner Amy Broyles tried to slip a poisoned apple into the tub, which, by the way, was fi lled with isotonic water. Anyway, if McKenzie worked for a print newspaper he wouldn’t have made such a silly observation. Contact Larry Van Guilder at


City election generates yawn A week from tomorrow night and it is over, this mayoral contest which started last summer (2010, not 2011) when Marilyn Roddy hosted fundraisers only to switch races once Jamie Woodson resigned as state senator. Last week I was asked during a talk at the Farragut Rotary Club if Roddy had stayed in the race would it be a different set of candidates in the current run off. This is a “what if” question to which the answer is only a speculation. However, I think it is certainly possible that would have been the case. There is no doubt Madeline Rogero was going to have a spot in the runoff or win it outright (only 16 votes short as it was). She has always been the person to beat and still is. Mark Padgett was only a few votes ahead of Ivan Harmon. Roddy would have taken some Republican votes from Harmon and perhaps gotten some Padgett votes as well. Padgett and Harmon were neck and neck. Certain-

Victor Ashe

ly it is plausible that Roddy could have been in the same close mix. She had ample funding which she returned once she switched races. She had been running for more than a year. Padgett and Harmon got 23 percent each so all Roddy had to do was win 24 percent and she would have been in the runoff. Now whether she would have defeated Rogero is another matter and my guess is not. However, I think that runoff would have been less negative than the current contest. The more interesting question is what would have happened had interim Mayor Daniel Brown decided to run for mayor. I am convinced he would have won a place in the runoff and probably faced

Rogero although his candidacy would have taken votes off Rogero in the African-American community. It also would have taken votes all across the city from people who have been impressed with the calm and deliberate manner in which he has led the city. A runoff between Rogero and Brown could have been close. If early voting averages 700 to 800 voters a day, about 9,000 people will vote early, which means the total city vote may reach 18,000, a few thousand more than the Sept. 27 primary. This is half the 33,000 who voted in 1987 when Randy Tyree and I faced off in a similar runoff. It is a shame so few people are voting and it argues strongly for changing the city elections to coincide with the state elections where turnout is much higher. This election is generating a yawn from 80 percent of the registered voters. ■ The nasty, unsigned letter attacking Rogero may

backfire. People do not appreciate such tactics and are more informed than the author of the mailer may think. It certainly will fire up the Rogero base. ■ Mayor Brown has indicated he will make office space available to the mayorelect to run his/her transition office between Nov. 8 and Dec. 17 when the new mayor takes office. The winner will be invited to a seminar at the John F. Kennedy School of Government at Harvard to be held Nov. 30 to Dec. 2 for newly elected mayors of cities over 90,000. It is sponsored by the U.S. Conference of Mayors and the JFK Institute of Politics and is a valuable source of information. ■ Vice Mayor Joe Bailey and his family have moved recently from his home on Hillvale Turn West (previously occupied by former County Commissioner Bee DeSelm) two blocks away to the corner of Kingston Pike and Oakhurst. His term on City Council ends Dec. 17.

Blowback: Republicans for Rogero Tennessee Conservative Union chair Lloyd Daugherty lives in Karns and doesn’t usually mess in city politics, but the anonymous letter trashing mayoral candidate Madeline Rogero and several prominent Republican supporters sucked him

Betty Bean into the maelstrom when he reported that eight of 15 TCU members who received the letter have decided to vote for Rogero. When TV reporters called, he said that he disagrees with Rogero on many philosophical issues, but has always liked her personally. That pulled him even deeper into the battle between Rogero and Mark Padgett, who, like Rogero, is a Democrat, but who enjoys the support of several well-known Republicans, most notably losing mayoral candidate Ivan Harmon and Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones. Later, Daugherty was in the doctor’s office and was approached by one of the nurses. “She said ‘Because you’ve endorsed Madeline, my friend and I have decided to vote for her. …’ I told her that I hadn’t really endorsed anybody, but I said Madeline’s honest and she’s smart and that’s who I’d be for if I were in the city. The lady said, ‘That’s good

enough for me.’ ” Daughterty said his friends are furious over the attack on Rogero supporter Eddie Mannis, who is responsible for the HonorAir flights that take World War II veterans to Washington, D.C., to see the monument to their service. “That went over like a tofu turkey at a Baptist homecoming. One fellow told me that Mr. Mannis helped his older brother go to Washington before he died. He said that letter made him sick. So if you talk to Madeline, tell her she didn’t know it and I didn’t know it but I’ve endorsed her.” County Mayor Tim Burchett says he doesn’t get involved in city politics when asked if he has a favorite in the Rogero-Padgett race. “But I’ll say this: We disagree about a lot of things, but she’s never lied to me. That’s more than I can say about a lot of people I know. And that letter? It’s just the death rattle of the old courthouse crowd.” Republican Executive Committee member Lynn Redmon is an unapologetic Rogero supporter: “I care about neighborhoods. That’s why I’m for Rogero.” Attorney Richard Beeler, who served as county law director when Rogero was a county commissioner, has GOP credentials that go back to Ronald Reagan’s 1980 campaign in the New Hampshire primary.

“This is a nonpartisan race, and I am a conservative Republican who thinks Madeline is the only candidate who is actually prepared to be a really great mayor. “I’ve actually worked with her, and the first thing I look for in a candidate is

a mind. She’s brilliant, and she’s solid on policy discussions. She’s prepared.” He said that the letter made him so mad he did something he rarely does in a city race: “I wrote her one of the biggest checks I’ve ever written a political candidate.”

Pay to play, says Pension Board Board wants $13K from Lobetti By Betty Bean County pension board member Ed Shouse was taken by surprisewhen politico Robert M. “Mose” Lobetti showed Lobetti up on the board’s September agenda to talk about his status under the Uniformed Officers Pension Plan. Lobetti has been asked to repay some $13,000 that was distributed to him before he switched from the county’s Asset Accumulation Plan to the UOPP in 2007. The UOPP is a defined benefits plan that was passed by referendum in 2007 and was sold to the public as a way to provide a decent retirement for law enforcement officers who risk their lives to ensure public safety. Lobetti, 82, is best known for his high profile involvement in local political campaigns – most recently that of mayoral candidate Mark Padgett – and his connections to the family of John J. Duncan Sr., Jr. and III. “When item No. 6 concerning Mose Lobetti came up, I said that I had known Mose for a long time and realized that he had been employed at the courthouse for many years, but I had always thought that he worked for the attorney general in the grand jury area and therefore was actually employed by the state. I then asked how could he be a participant of the UOPP. The response was that he was a ‘Court Officer’ and was on the payroll of the sheriff.

I asked if this was similar to a bailiff’s position and the answer was yes. As you know, bailiffs qualify for the UOPP,” Shouse said. Lobetti’s attorney, Steve Sharp, did not return a telephone call when contacted for comment on this story, but pension board minutes for the September meeting reflect that Sharp asked for a postponement and requested that the board provide Lobetti with calculations “based on where he would stand if he had not transferred to the Uniformed Officers’ Pension Plan.” Pension Board executive director Kim Bennett told the board that Lobetti received payments (due to his age) from the Asset Accumulation Plan in 2003, 2004, 2005 and 2006 in the amount of $11,171.81. She said that Lobetti should have been given the option of repaying that money with interest or taking a reduced benefit at that time. Instead, she said, “He fell through the cracks.” “Either he needs to pay it back or his benefit will be reduced,” Bennett said. She explained that anyone receiving the UOPP must have 25 years service and be at least 50 years old to draw the pension. Pension board attorney Richard Beeler confirmed Bennett’s take on the Lobetti matter: “If he buys back that lost time, he will receive an increased benefit when he officially retires under the UOPP.” The matter was postponed again in October and has been rescheduled for the November meeting.

Discerning the Arab Spring It’s hard to write history when you’re in the middle of it. That’s why we have newspapers.

Sandra Clark

So, I drifted by the Democratic Club that meets on Bearden Hill last week to hear retired UT professor Bob Cunningham talk about the Arab Spring. You know the Arab Spring. We just finished it, although one could argue it’s the Arab Era and we’re not done yet. Cunningham discussed the populist uprisings in the Middle East in terms of the economy and what he called “old men and their families.” Every country was impacted by the bad economy, even the oil producers, he said. Production was cut and workers were laid off. Even college educated young people could not find work. “There is a feeling that the system doesn’t work and an enthusiasm, especially by young people, to change it,” he said. Cunningham traced family or military control back to the 1960s for most Middle Eastern countries and back to the 1920s for Jordan. There is pentup pressure for regime change. “Religious and ethnic minorities often do better with authoritarian rule. They get by because they are no threat.” Cunningham, who lived and taught in Syria for three years, said minorities

Dr. Bob Cunningham

have reason for concern as dictators are overthrown, especially those minorities such as the Sunnis in Iraq that have ruled over the majority Shiites. Then he asked: Is Islam a threat to the United States’ way of life? He called Turkey a “real hero in the Middle East” as an example of a secular Islamic country.

That’s the key it seems. Don’t mix government and religion. Good advice for us all. The Q-and-A was all over the map, reflecting both the audience’s engagement in the topic and the individuals’ need to have Cunningham hear their point of view. “Technology is an irresistible force,” said one. With computers and cellphones, dissidents can organize. What happens in Iraq when we leave? “They can’t blame the Americans any more,” said Cunningham. “The younger generation wants to participate, and that leads to optimism. … The military wants stability and often will trade growth for stability. “It’s all mixed up with pieces that don’t fit. It’s impossible to predict (the outcome).”

Timeline Since January, revolutions have occurred in Tunisia and Egypt; a civil war in Libya; civil uprisings in Bahrain, Syria and Yemen; major protests in Algeria, Iraq, Jordan, Morocco and Oman; and minor protests in Kuwait, Lebanon, Mauritania, Saudi Arabia, Sudan and Western Sahara. Three heads of state were overthrown: Tunisian President Zine El Abidine Ben Ali fled to Saudi Arabia on Jan. 14. In Egypt, President Hosni Mubarak resigned on Feb. 11, ending his 30year presidency. Libyan leader Muammar Gaddafi was overthrown on Aug. 23, killed on Oct. 20 and buried in a “secret location.” – Wikipedia

Norman to be inducted to Central High Wall of Fame Educator founded UT’s religious studies department By Courtney Shea Ralph V. Norman Jr., Ph.D., a Central High School graduate of the Class of 1951, is being inducted into the school’s Wall of Fame at the annual breakfast ceremony 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 12, at the school. Dr. Norman is being recognized for his career of scholarly accomplishments, especially as the founding head of the Department of Religious Studies at UT. As an educator and scholar, his activities and writings brought together themes and ideas from diverse disciplines. Ralph V. Norman Jr. was 9 when his family moved to Fountain City. In 1942, Ralph V. Norman Sr., a sales manager for the tobacco firm of Brown and Williamson, received a promotion and moved his family – wife Anna Lee, daughter Sara Jane and son Ralph Jr. – from Johnson City to Fulton Road. Ralph liked the area, remembering Fountain City as somewhat different from the rest of the community. It was a harder for his sister, six years older, to make the transition from Johnson City at a time when many of the young men of her age were leaving school for the military. Ralph recalls Fountain City as an interesting crossroads, having a diverse professional class with new families brought in by Oak Ridge and TVA as well as international visitors observing the results of the TVA social experiment. He attended first Fountain City Elementary then traveled one block over to Central High. Ralph enjoyed both academics and activities at Central. He played in the band and was an enthusiastic member of the debate club. His junior year, the debate team reached the state finals, placing second.

university, he was unable to persuade former athletic director Doug Dickey to include croquet as a university sport. Among his honors are the Chancellor’s Citation for Extraordinary Service to the University (2003) and the University Studies Award for Distinguished Service (2002). Dr. Norman’s interests in humanities and the arts extend beyond academics. He chaired the Tennessee Committee for the Humanities and served on the board of the Knoxville Opera Guild. He has combined his love of croquet with community service through croquet tournaments benefitting the Opera Guild and the High Country Women’s Fund in Avery County, N.C. He has been involved in arts councils for the city of Knoxville and the state of Tennessee. Connie and Ralph raised two children, son Stephen and daughter Emily. Knoxville is home to Emily and her husband, David Cox, and children, Jonathan and Caroline. Son Stephen passed away in 2000. Connie passed away in 2007. Now retired, Ralph Norman divides his time between Knoxville, Blowing Rock, N.C., and Key Largo, Fla. He met his new wife, Linda, in Blowing Rock and has enjoyed introducing her to competition croquet. A native of Albany, N.Y., Linda Lillo Norman has also enjoyed being introduced to Knoxville’s version of Southern culture.

Breakfast is Nov. 12 The 10th annual Central High School Wall of Fame breakfast is 9 a.m. Saturday, Nov. 12, at the Central High commons. Other inductees include Charlotte Davis, Eddie Mannis and the Rev. Billy Wallace. Tickets are available at the school office or by calling 922-5433.

I was meant to be an October baby, a fact no one pointed out to me while I lay curled up, warm and cozy and protected in my mother’s tummy. For three weeks past her due date, I lazed around, getting fat, quite unconcerned with calendars. Then, on Halloween night, I decided it was time to make my debut, and Daddy drove Mother to the hospital. (I have never until this

rity of the womb, I procrastinated further and did not draw my first breath in this world until late afternoon, the next day. So I missed October altogether that year. But nowadays when I see the blue October skies, the air so clear I can see every leaf, and the leaves themselves a riot of color, my heart sings, and I know it is true. I am a child of October. Years later, when I was a student at UT, my sophomore English professor was of English descent. I think of him every year at this time, not because of all the wonderful things he taught me, nor his dry British humor, or the twinkle in his eyes, but because he spoke of Keats’ “Ode to Autumn” with such reverence. Every October I take out my textbook, “World Masterpieces,” and reread not only Keats’ poem, but also

the notes I wrote in the margins of the page. I can still hear Dr. Sanders saying, “This is the perfect poem. This poem doesn’t say something; it is what it says.” He went through the poem word by word, helping us appreciate the imagery, the sensuous sound and pace of the words, the arrangement of the letters. He pointed out the perfection of the brief moment captured in the poem, a moment that is balanced in perfect maturity: ripeness, suspended between growth and decay. He waxed eloquent also about the perfection of the arrangement of words: the three stanzas (three being a perfect number: beginning, middle, end), and the fact that all the senses get drawn into play. The first stanza,

he noted, is all about taste, touch and smell. The second deals with sight, and the third is devoted to sounds. Rereading that poem reminds me to taste and touch and smell autumn in all its glory, as well as to see it. Keats nudges me: turns my face to look, to savor, to listen, to breathe. I am so grateful to live here, in this place, with four distinct seasons, with the turning of the year painted in gold and amber and scarlet, with the quiet brook lying at the back of my meadow, and the sky so blue it hurts my heart. I am so blessed to have eyes to see, ears to hear, a mind to wonder, and a soul to give thanks. Happy autumn!

Tyler Bray didn’t notice the Tar Heel linebacker. If going to Nashville leaves something to be desired, there are several other potential destinations with exciting settings. Boise. Mobile. Albuquerque. Shreveport. Any one would be a genuine adventure for Dave Hart, new athletic director. The bulk of his experience has been in tandem with the big boys. At about this stage of the discussion, some dull cynic will ask, “Why bother?” There are valid reasons to covet minor bowl invitations. Some donors don’t want to go which reduces university losses on the guest list.

Bearden High School’s musical theater department will produce the musical “Pippin” on Nov. 10-13. This will be the 15th show under BHS’s musical theater teacher Leann Dickson. “ ‘Pippin’ is a coming-ofage story about the heir to the throne of Charlemagne,” says Dickson. “It follows the life of the young prince as he searches for meaning and significance in the world. The leading player and troupe of actors lead the audience through Pippin’s life journey.” Music and lyrics from “Pippin” are by Stephen Schwatrz, who also composed “Wicked” and “Godspell.” The show originally ran on Broadway in the early 1970s, winning numerous Tony Awards including Best Actor in a Musical (Ben Vereen), as well as Best Choreographer (Bob Fosse). This year’s show has several cast members who appeared in last year’s sold out

America,” at 8 p.m. Nov. 12 at the Tennessee Theatre. The event is sponsored by the Tennessee Arts Commission, a city of Knoxville Community Agency Grant, WUOT 91.9 FM and the Clayton Foundation.

The Knoxville Choral Society and the East Tennessee Concert Band will combine forces in Howard Hanson’s “Song of Democracy,” “Salute to the Armed Forces,” the “Battle Hymn of the Republic” and other patriotic favorites.

Tickets are $20 and may be purchased at www. or at the door. All veterans will receive a 25 percent discount. WWII Veterans and spouses will be admitted free. Info: www.

Coaches are in favor of all bowl invitations. They receive extra pay. Bonus is a key word in all Mike Hamilton contracts. Players like bowl bids. They receive funds for individual travel, then pool or hitch rides and pocket profits. They also receive bowl gifts, watches, cameras, iPods. Some work. Fans, richly blessed, applaud bowl opportunities. Bowl trips make memories. Good neighbor Carl was never able to forget the Garden State Bowl, 28-21 over Wisconsin on Dec. 13, 1981. Steve Alatorre was MVP. Even minor bowls are important. They are status symbols. Well, sort of. They are rewards for not losing seven or more games. They supposedly create good feelings about the future. We will definitely get ’em next year. Young players who are now just watching get ex-

tra practice opportunities. No doubt you noticed widespread improvement generated by the additional workouts of last December. Bowl bids are recruiting tools. If prospects feed on history lessons, we can offer a thick book. Tennessee has been bowling 49 times. In the official 2011 brochure, it says the Volunteers traditionally provide an exciting bowl spectacle with high-powered offense and grudging defense. How about that! It is a splendid idea for Tennessee fans to look ahead boldly to bowl eligibility. Soon and very soon, let us cheer that accomplishment, no matter where it leads. The alternative, missing out, is simply not acceptable. Staying home by the fireside, no matter how large is your TV screen, is absolutely awful during bowl season.

showing of “Hairspray.” Like last year’s production, “Pippin” has been a big undertaking for the class of auditioned students. Students and their families have been working to create the sets and costumes for the show. Bearden High School’s musical theater department has a history of graduating students who have taken up careers in the industry. From students who have performed in “Broadway on Tour” series and commercials for major brands, to those who are in careers behind the scenes in production, lighting and costume design and also playwrights have come through the program. Several of this year’s graduating seniors plan to continue as part of their collegiate studies. The program is co-taught by Mary Sexton, choral instructor at BHS. Show times for “Pippin” are 7:30 p.m. Nov. 10 and Nov. 12 and 2:30 p.m. Nov. 13. Tickets will be on sale at the school during the week of the show or can be purchased at the door. Prices are $10 for adults and $8 for students.

Time to focus on bowl eligibility Optimism is linked to good health. Encouragement is wherever you find it. Fortunes are rooted in the power of positive thinking. Sometime soon those still wearing orange sunglasses will stop looking back at the wreckage of what might have been and switch their focus to bowl eligibility. Six victories open the door to one of the many minor bowls. Go Vols! Give us six! Nipping Middle Tennessee State will be a giant step forward. After that comes an inconvenient trip to Arkansas and then the old faithfuls, Vandy and Kentucky. Push hard, men. End this season with a bang! Ah yes, Johnny Majors had it right, people remember what you do in November. And December. Last year, Tennessee and the officials found a way for North Carolina to prevail in the lovely Music City Bowl. OK, so it required overtime. And

NEWS FROM CHRISTIAN ACADEMY OF KNOXVILLE Madeline Mixner as Jasmine and Nolan Howell as Aladdin take a ride on the magic carpet in the Christian Academy of Knoxville Middle School production of “Aladdin Jr.” Photos by S. Carey

CAK NOTES The evil Jafar, played by Weston Sullivan, and bird Iago, played by Maggie Murchison, plot Aladdin’s downfall.

‘A whole new world’ Middle school presents ‘Aladdin Jr.’ By Shannon Carey


agic lamps, flying carpets, genies, wishes and sorcerers took over the stage at Christian Academy of Knoxville, as middle school choral music and musical theatre students presented “Aladdin Jr.” According to director Peggy Filyaw, the production was the Broadway version of the Disney movie, but with music scaled for middle school voices. Hence the “Jr.” in the title. The musical still packs all the magic and fun of the full version, though. Filyaw said this is the 12th middle school musical at CAK, and she is glad to see the program grow. “I think it gives students confidence to be in front of an audience,” she said. “It’s just great to be able to give them

that opportunity.” With 48 students in the “Aladdin Jr.” cast and crew, the production offered ample opportunities for student participation. As Filyaw said, “There are no benchwarmers in musical theatre.” The clever street urchin Aladdin is played by 8th grader Nolan Howell, who is gracing the CAK stage for the first time. His performance is paired with Jasmine played by Madeline Mixner in her third CAK performance. The wisecracking genie is played by 8th grader Jane Ann Foncea, and the evil Jafar is portrayed by 7th grader Weston Sullivan, another rookie to the CAK stage. This production is also special because a student director is taking part for the first time. CAK senior Travis Blackwell is serving as assistant director.

Nolan Howell as Aladdin rubs the magic lamp and summons the genie, played by Jane Ann Foncea. “He’s brought a whole lot to this show,” said Filyaw. Set design was provided by CAK parent and professional artist Cheryl Nehls. Parent volunteers helped with costuming. Janet McLean arranged the choreography and helped in other ways, too. “We couldn’t do this without Janet,” said Filyaw. Filyaw also thanked CAK Middle School Principal Debbie Moye for her support of the musical theatre program.

Students raise $1,000 for Ridgedale School

Girls volleyball team make state tournament The CAK girls volleyball team went all the way to the state tournament with wins in the district and regional tournaments. Holly Staabe and Lauren Peterson were named to the Regional Tournament Team. Teresa Slade was named Tournament MVP for the region and the district and district Player of the Year. Maggie Morgan and Taylor Call were chosen for the All District Tournament Team. Lauren Petersen was named district Server of the Year. Cheyenne Hooper was named district Rookie of the Year, and coach Jamie Petrick was named district Coach of the Year. Taylor Call, Courtney Shields and Maggie Morgan received honorable mentions for the All-District Team for the regular season. Photo submitted

CAK students Chris Harpending and Jeff Braswell sold Knox County school coupon books to help the Ridgedale Alternative School, raising more than $1,000 for the program. They will be honored at 3:15 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 1, at Ridgedale. “I was shocked,” said longtime coupon books coordinator Mary Kerr. “In 23 years I’ve never had a call like this.” Initially, Kerr thought they wanted to sell coupon books to benefit their school. “We do that with private schools, but only after the Knox County Schools kids have finished selling. I told the boys they could start selling after Sept. 26, but they said they wanted to help a school that didn’t typically sell many books.” With $7.90 from each $10 book remaining at the school, Ridgedale gained $940.10 from the 119 books sold by Jeff and Chris. Additionally, First Tennessee Bank offers a $1 incentive per book sold over the previous year. Since Ridgedale sold only

Chris Harpending and Jeff Braswell four books last year, First Tennessee kicked in $115, bringing the total to $1055.10. Kerr is so excited. She’s printing a “big check” for the boys to present to administrators at Ridgedale at Tuesday’s ceremony. “They turned in their money and books matching to the penny. Actually, they did better than some of our schools,” she said. “These are great young men. One wants to go to college at Baylor and the other at Vandy.”

Helbig is new tennis coach Christian Academy of Knoxville has hired David Helbig as the new head coach for men’s and women’s tennis. Helbig comes to CAK after recent stints at Cedar Bluff Racquet Club, where he was a professional tennis instructor, and Webb School, where he was an assistant coach. Helbig says he is committed to the spiritual nurturing of young athletes as well as the instruction necessary to secure a winning program. The CAK tennis program has established a tradition of winning at the high school level. Between the girls and boys teams, the Warriors have 26 district championships, 19 regional championships, three state championships and several individual championships. When longtime coach Betsy Sparks announced her intent to step away from the program, it became imperative to find a coach who would continue her tradition of excellence. With new tennis facilities in place, it is a unique opportunity to hire a coach who will train CAK’s athletes and extend his professional training to CAK families and the community. In fact, Helbig will offer lessons for the extended CAK family and community. This will help create a culture of excitement for tennis on campus and increase involvement from year to year. Also, Helbig will work closely with the middle school players to add tennis to the list of sports on campus that are comprehensive from 6th through 12th grade.

Hebert is known for her brightly colored and highly textured paintings. Her signature impastostyle of applying layer upon layer of acrylic paint, and ďŹ nishing with a high gloss UV-protectant varnish is a technique that she developed by trial and error. Hebert uses both palette knife and brush to achieve a distinctive look that is one-of-a-kind. Her paintings evolve within each stage, resulting in a wonder of texture and color. Bright, fun and energetic, Hebertâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s personality is a part of every piece she creates. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My paintings are deďŹ nitely a style all their own,â&#x20AC;?

The subjects are not abstract, but very impressionistic in style. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I try not to get caught up in the rules and regulations of art, but rather just paint as I feel,â&#x20AC;? Hebert said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My work reďŹ&#x201A;ects a little bit of who I am â&#x20AC;Ś I enjoy what I do for a living, and hopefully that shows through in the paintings.â&#x20AC;?

She went on to work as a graphic designer for Word Publishing in Nashville, Tenn., and then joined Broadman & Holman Publishers where she designed book jackets and worked on major ad campaigns.

A proliďŹ c painter, you can catch her most days working in her studio located in the historic Factory at Franklin. Hebert also studied fine art at The Chelsea School of Art and Design and Central St. Martins School of Art in London, England where she took many different art classes.

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Art of Healingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; calendar features local and regional artwork Peninsula, the areaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leading provider of mental health services, has produced a beautiful, fullcolor wall calendar that showcases artwork from renowned local and regional artists.

The calendar pages highlight a different Artsclamation! artist for each month in 2012. Calendars are $10 each, and make wonderful gifts. The name of the calendar, â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Art of Healing,â&#x20AC;? has a double meaning. The first is direct: proceeds from the calendar benefit Peninsula programs and services.

Woman’s heart blockage treated with procedure thru wrist Judith Hodge sees people with heart disease every day. As a staff member of the Fort Sanders Heart Center, she well knows the signs and symptoms of a heart attack. But, when Judith herself began experiencing chest pains off and on, she dismissed the warning signs. “It’s called denial,” Judith admits now. “I figured it was just indigestion. I’m pretty healthy, so I didn’t think I could be having heart problems.” Judith ignored her chest pain for several weeks until one Thursday afternoon, she suddenly felt unable to walk to her car after work. “I asked one of our nurses to take my blood pressure, and it was very high,” remembers Judith. “When my EKG was also abnormal, Dr. Todd said, ‘You’re going straight to the ER.’ ” She spent the night in the hospital and in the morning interventional cardiologist Dr. Joshua Todd performed a transradial cardiac catheterization. Judith learned that one of the arteries at the back of her heart was 95 percent blocked. Dr. Todd placed a stent to open the

Judith Hodge shows the tiny “battle scar” on her wrist from her recent transradial heart catheterization procedure.

“It was so quick,” says Judith. “I didn’t have to lie still for hours and not move my legs. It was very easy on me.” Judith is amazed at how quickly she recovered from the procedure. “I was back at work on Monday, with just a tiny battle scar on my wrist,” she says, proudly displaying her arm. “If you have to have a heart cath, this is the way to go!” Judith is continuing her reJudith Hodge is back at work at the Fort Sanders Heart Center shortly after covery by adopting a new healthy undergoing a heart catheterization procedure through her wrist. lifestyle and attending classes in artery and restore blood flow to tient’s wrist instead of the groin, the Fort Sanders Cardiac Rehaher heart.

and eating what I’m supposed to,” explains Judith. “I’ve already lost weight and now am building muscle.” Judith knows that her heart blockage could have been diagnosed much sooner if she hadn’t ignored her symptoms. “Don’t ignore chest pains like I did. Get it checked out immediately,” she advises. “I almost waited too long. It was way too close.” For more information about transradial catheterization and other cardiac procedures available at Fort Sanders Regional, call (865) 673-FORT (3678).

A quick flick of the wrist? A new way to open blocked heart vessels Heart catheterization procedures can save lives. Commonly called “balloon” angioplasty and stenting, these minimally invasive procedures use tiny, balloon-like catheters inserted through a patient’s artery to reach the heart, where they facilitate a number of procedures to prevent and treat heart artery blockages. Currently, the maJoshua W. Todd, jority of those cathM.D. eters are inserted Interventional through the femoral Cardiologist artery, which is in the groin. But at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, a number of heart catheterization procedures are being performed through an artery in the wrist, a process called transradial cardiac catheterization. This new technique can benefit patients with special health concerns. “It can be more comfortable for people who are morbidly obese, those who have chronic back pain, or patients who are on blood thinners have a higher risk of bleeding,” explains Dr. Joshua Todd, an Interventional Cardiologist with Knoxville Heart Group at Fort Sanders Regional. “With the wrist procedure, patients are sitting up immediately afterward with only a

But, with comparable patient outcomes for both methods, using the wrist does give physicians another option for catheter insertion. “There are clear benefits for many patients with a transradial access catheterization, not just for heart procedures, but for any place in the body that needs a stent to open a blocked artery.” says Dr. Todd. Although the transradial catheterization procedure may not be suitable for everyone, it is a new cardiac approach available at Fort Sanders Regional that offers benefits for those who do qualify. For more information about the cardiac catheterization procedures available at Fort Sanders Regional, please call (865) 673-FORT (3678).

small wrist bandage in place.” While only five percent of cardiologists in the United States do transradial catheterization versus the traditional femoral approach, the use of this technique is growing and evolving. “European countries perform fifty to ninety percent of their catheterizations through the wrist,” says Dr. Todd. “I think it will become more popular here and possibly become a standard of care

in the U.S. Transradial access has also been shown to reduce hospital length of stay and lower health care costs.” One drawback to the transradial access is that in some patients (around 10-15%) the procedure may take a little longer than transfemoral access. Also, a quick, non-invasive bedside test must be done first on the wrist to make sure the artery has a dual blood supply in order to safely perform the procedure.

Benefits of transradial cardiac catheterization: N Less bleeding N Less pain N Quicker recovery N Earlier return to work N Low complication rate N Lower cost N Improved quality of life

An ounce of prevention ... Your life may depend upon it


s we inch upwards of age 50, one piece of advice we too often try to ignore is “Get your colonoscopy.” Dr. Bergein Overholt of Gastrointestinal Associates (GIA) says, “Don’t put this off! Your life may depend upon it.” He and his group feel so strongly about the importance of the exam, they have made a day of it: GIA Screening Colonoscopy Day. The program, now in its third year, provides free colonoscopy exams to a group of people preselected by Interfaith Health Clinic and the Free Medical Clinic of America. GIA has partnered with providers such as Anesthesia Associates of Knoxville, Tennova, Premier Surgical Associates, The Endoscopy Center, Boston Scientific, Interactive Optics, the American Cancer Society and Salix Pharmaceuticals to enable folks who might not otherwise be screened to have this potentially life-saving procedure. But perhaps just as important, GIA Screening Colonoscopy Day helps build awareness throughout the community of the importance of this preventative measure.

“Colon cancer is the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the U.S. and one of the most curable if caught early,” said Overholt. “Screening colonoscopy is the only test that allows us to find and remove abnormal cell growths called polyps from the entire colon.” He ought to know. Overholt pioneered flexible fiberoptic sigmoidoscopy, devel-

oping the instrument which led to modern colonoscopy. As founding partner at GIA, he has fostered a commitment to research for providing the best and most advanced care in gastroenterology. GIA is a national leader in technology for the treatment and diagnosis of gastrointestinal diseases. GIA was the first private practice in the country to develop a state licensed,

Medicare certified, endoscopic ambulatory surgery center (ASC), making gastrointestinal health care more convenient and affordable for patients. Now with three ASC locations in Knoxville, GIA serves as a model for practices around the country. Currently, GIA is pioneering new technologies and procedures for the treatment of Barrett’s esophagus. During the latest GIA Screening Colonoscopy Day, more than half of the 46 patients screened had polyps removed. Though typically benign, some polyps contain a small area of cancer or will develop into cancer over time. Studies have shown that polyp removal has been associated with a 60- to 90-percent reduction in colorectal cancer. These exams are essential to preventing colon cancer for anyone age 50 or older. It is even more important for people with a family history of colon cancer to be screened regularly. “I can’t stress enough just how important this screening is,” said Overholt. “This year, 32 percent of the patients screened during the event had at least one cancerous polyp, and one patient was diagnosed with cancer that arose from a polyp. When we find these polyps early, we can very likely prevent or cure this cancer. And early diagnosis gives those with cancer a fighting chance.” So don’t put it off any longer. In the case of a screening colonoscopy, an ounce of prevention could truly mean a cure.

If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re new to Medicare, itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important to know that both parts of original Medicare (A and B) have deductibles. And, the Part A deductibles are not tied to a calendar year like they are with traditional health insurance. Instead, theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re

New Benefit: Starting in 2011, health care reform requires all Medicare Advantage plans to have a maximum limit of $6,700 on how much a customer can pay out of their own pocket for medical services, excluding the cost of prescription drugs. Each type of supplemen-

tal coverage has different guidelines for when you can enroll, change and cancel your coverage.

There are new Medicare annual enrollment dates Most beneficiaries can change a Medicare Advantage plan or stand-alone Medicare prescription drug plan once per year during Medicareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual enrollment period (AEP). The dates for AEP changed this year, and run from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7 in 2011. Medicare Supplement plans have an initial enrollment period, which occurs in the first six months after you enroll in Medicare Part B and are 65 or older. During that time, you can enroll in a Medicare Supplement plan and not be declined. But, if you try to enroll after the initial enrollment period, your application could be declined based on a review of your medical history. But, if you want to switch

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s critical to compare drug coverage every year, an Internet company that allows people to compare Medicare plans side-by-side and research benefits, drug prices and different coverage options, looked at 25,000 user sessions on its website during the 2011 AEP (between Nov. 15, 2010, and Dec. 31, 2010). Customers entered their ZIP code; their existing Medicare prescription drug plan or Medicare Advantage drug plan; and the names, dosages and frequency of any prescription drugs they were taking, if any. The siteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s prescription drug plan comparison tool found that, on average, a user could save more than $500 per year â&#x20AC;&#x201D; more than $40 per month â&#x20AC;&#x201D; by reviewing their options and changing their prescription drug plan. But, averages donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t tell the full story. In a recent news article, a MarketWatch reporter compared the cost differences for a single drug in one Georgia ZIP code and found that annual expenses could range from $2,661 to $9,032, depending on which Medicare Advantage plan is chosen. If you want to review and research the different Medicare products available in your ZIP code, www. is a great place to start.

Get star power in 2012 The Affordable Care Act, (health care reform) requires a star rating system to be used for Medicare Advantage plans, beginning in 2012. Plans get a rating of 1 to 5, with a 5-star rating equating to an â&#x20AC;&#x153;Excellent Performance,â&#x20AC;? and a 1-star rating equating to a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Poor Performance.â&#x20AC;?

This year, baby boomers begin turning 65, which means more people will be enrolling in the basic benefit than ever before, putting more stress and time constraints on enrollment experts.


Tuesday â&#x20AC;&#x201D; Saturday 10am - 6pm

New to Medicare? According to the Kaiser Family Foundation, out of 523 plans nationwide in 2011, only three received an overall rating of 5, and 74 received an overall rating 4 or 4.5 stars. Heading into 2012 the hope is that more plans will achieve this high 5-star rating. If youâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re lucky enough to have access to a 5-star plan, consider it as an option for your coverage. One benefit of a 5-star plan is that you can enroll at any time, even outside of Medicareâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual enrollment period.

Make way for baby boomers qualifying for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Original Medicareâ&#x20AC;? at age 65 That, plus the new dates, means people who wait until the last minute could be putting themselves at risk. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a good idea to make a plan and review your coverage for 2012 early. A great place to review and research the different Medicare products available in your ZIP code is www. 2012 Medicare annual enrollment period runs from Oct. 15 to Dec. 7, 2011.

Many people who are new to Medicare may have to deal with the complexity of the program. Here are some basics: â&#x2013; Medicare is comprised of four major programs: Part A, Part B, Part C, and Part D. Medicare Part A and Part B are often referred to as â&#x20AC;&#x153;Original Medicare.â&#x20AC;? There are also Medicare Supplement plans, which are designed as an alternative to Part C to fill gaps in Parts A and B. â&#x2013;  Generally speaking, Part A covers in-patient hospitalization while Part B covers outpatient services and other medical care. â&#x2013;  Part C denotes the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Medicare Advantageâ&#x20AC;? program where private insurance companies deliver Medicare Part A, Part B and, in most cases, Part D benefits to plan enrollees. â&#x2013;  Part D is the Medicare prescription drug benefit that provides insurance coverage for medications. â&#x2013;  Your circumstances determine when you can enroll in or change Part D and C plans. â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Family Features

Keeping your muscles healthy as you age Take control of how you age


id you know you have more than 600 muscles in your body, including your tongue, heart and stomach? When exerted, your muscles pull against your skeleton, causing your bones to become strong and durable. But a lack of exercise and nutrition can compromise your muscle strength, especially as you age. “The average person can lose 8 percent of muscle tissue every 10 years after the age of 40,” says Dr. Vonda Wright, orthopedic surgeon, medical researcher and author of “Fitness After 40.” “When

it comes to muscle, if you don’t use it, you’ll lose it.” In addition to age, a sedentary lifestyle and poor nutrition can lead to loss of muscle. Many people are surprised to learn that a sedentary person may have 40 to 50 percent body fat. On the flip side, muscle burns more calories than fat during daily activities,

including sitting. A serious, temporary illness or injury or a diet lacking proper nutrition, especially protein, can also cause a loss in muscle mass. So muscle loss is not just a concern of the middle-aged or inactive, but for anyone who wants to stay healthy and active. To find out if your muscles are

in good shape, try the push-up test. Men of any age should be able to do 11 and women should be able to complete eight. If you fall short of your goal, don’t despair. You still have time to build muscle strength with these tips: • Feed your muscle. Proteins are the building blocks of muscle. Get your protein daily from meat, poultry, fish, nuts, eggs and beans. You can also augment your diet with healthful protein and nutrition shakes, such as Ensure Muscle Health shakes, which contain Revigor (a source of HMB, an amino-acid metabolite), and 13 grams of protein to help rebuild muscle and strength naturally lost over time. They are perfect for a snack on the go. • Get aerobic exercise. Try to get between 30 to 60 minutes of blood-pumping exercise daily to build muscle endurance. And stretch your muscles before and after to prevent injury.

Parkview Senior Living INDEPENDENT SERVICE

• Carry a load. Resistance training is also essential to keeping your muscles strong and limber and retaining bone density. Use weights or the resistance of your own body weight to build your strength. “We live in an amazing time when we really are able to have some control over how we age,” says Dr. Wright. “In fact, there’s new evidence that boomers and seniors who exercise three to five times a week are able to retain lean muscle like younger athletes. So don’t let your age discourage you from living a healthier, active life today!” For more information about maintaining healthy muscles and to read more of Dr. Wright’s tips, visit Then get started rebuilding your muscle strength. After all, this is the only body you have. – StatePoint
