The school board must vote, but that’s a formality. Look for the new school previously known as the “southwest sector elementary school” to become Northshore Elementary. Principal Susan Davis and a committee of 13 unanimously recommended the name from more than 700 suggestions. “We decided a name that students, parents and the community can immediately identify with will help build culture and community for the school,” Davis said. Committee members were Davis; Susan Turner, elementary supervisor; Stephanie Settlemyre, Blue Grass; Lana Hsieh, Hardin Valley; Cindy Smith and Ruth Lindsey, A.L. Lotts; Carrie Sweet, Farragut Primary; Callie Painter, Farragut Intermediate; Jami Welden, Cedar Bluff; and parents Olga Marlar, Beth Duncan, Tonya Alsobrooks, Jason Hayes and Lisa Cole.

Area schools selected for technology grant Bearden High and West Valley Middle schools were among 11 selected to participate in Knox County Schools’ technology grant challenge. A total of 28 schools applied to have 1:1 technology (one iPad or tablet for each student and teacher). Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre announced the winners Friday, saying instructional technology in selected schools will give everyone a chance to see the initiative work “right in their own neighborhood.” The program will launch this fall. The application from West Valley Middle School said: “This opportunity meets students where they are and allows them to move forward at an individualized pace. It will create experiences that appeal to each student’s interests.” While Bearden’s read: “The future is now. Students must be able to find, understand, create and communicate information. Technology is a valuable tool to excite and energize the next generation of learners.” Others chosen are SouthDoyle High School; Vine and Holston middle schools; and Bonny Kate, Corryton, Halls, Mooreland Heights, Norwood and Sterchi elementary schools.

Duncan praises community schools By Wendy Smith The U.S. Secretary of Education came to town last week, and he said a lot of nice things about Tennessee’s education reform efforts. We’ve come a long way, he said, and he’d like to see us continue that growth.

Analysis Arne Duncan’s specific recommendations for the state included expanding high-quality early learning and reversing steep cuts to higher education. He also said he’d like for teacher salaries to be radically increased. These suggestions were met with applause from those who can imagine that such big ticket items will get funded anytime soon. Duncan also praised a more affordable initiative that Knox County has already embraced – community schools. Community schools typically remain open long after the bell rings so students can get extra help in subjects like

math and reading, participate in enrichment classes and eat dinner. Parents and other community members can enroll in GED or ESL classes, and some schools even offer health clinics, laundry facilities or help with taxes. Community schools, in essence, become community centers. Duncan served as Chief

Executive Officer of Chicago Public Schools, and witnessed the profound impact of converting 150 Chicago schools to community schools. While academic enrichment for students was at the heart of the effort, parents flocked to the schools to take advantage of learning opportunities.

“I promise you, where families are learning together, and schools truly become the heart of the neighborhood, those children will be very, very successful,” Duncan said. Pond Gap Elementary School’s University-Assisted Community School program is currently in its third year. It has served as a pilot program for the county. Randy Boyd, founder of Radio Systems Corp. and special advisor for higher education to Gov. Bill Haslam, provided the bulk of funding for the Pond Gap program. After Duncan spoke, Boyd participated in a panel discussion where he reflected on increased parental involvement at Pond Gap. Among other things, the school now has a PTA. After some quick math, he estimated how much it would cost each Knox County resident to fund 15-20 more community schools – $14. The price is low because the concept relies heavily on nonprofits and volunteers. It’s an inexpensive solu-

tion to the conundrum of how to get parents physically into the school building. As Duncan said, parents of the most challenged students often failed academically themselves, and don’t have warm, fuzzy feelings about schools. It’s also a compassionate response to struggling families. Dr. Bob Kronick of UT’s College of Education, Health and Human Sciences has been working on the community school concept for 14 years. When asked to comment during the panel discussion, he said that students can’t learn if their basic needs – food, clothing and shelter – aren’t met. Community schools provide support to students and families that is lacking in these areas. Last year, Knox County Commission provided an additional $500,000 to expand the community school program into Lonsdale, Green and Norwood elementary schools. Check back next week to learn more about these programs.

prepare students for a culinary career rather than a cooking hobby. Before beginning the program in January, Megan Walker of Chattanooga studied engineering. “It was not fun at all,” she says. She chose the UT program because it is short, and inexpensive, compared to a culinary degree. She begins her career at a new Chattanooga eatery this week. While Eisele hoped to recruit at least 15 executive chefs to work with students in the program, he was surprised, and pleased, to have 28 offer their expertise. “They were banging down the door,” he says.

government Dunns plan Knox visit Attending the dedication of the Ann Baker Furrow Boulevard at Sorority Village on the UT campus (next to Neyland Drive) this coming Saturday, April 13, at 1 p.m. will be the person who appointed Furrow to the UT Board of Trustees. That is former Gov. Winfield Dunn, 85, and his wife, Betty Dunn, who are coming from Nashville where they now live. Chancellor Jimmy Cheek will preside at a UT-sponsored, invitation-only luncheon preceding the event. Furrow was the first woman to serve on the UT board. The public is invited and sorority houses will be open for viewing after the dedication. ■ Anthony Hancock, who unsuccessfully opposed state Rep. Steve Hall, has picked up a petition to oppose City Council member Duane Grieve (West Knoxville). What had been a sleepy election may become more interesting, but Hancock will have to wage a more active campaign this year than he did against Hall to be a serious contender. Picking up a petition does not mean he will actually qualify, but it does mean he is thinking about it. Several city precincts were in the House district he contested last fall. His loss to Hall was not close. ■ Duane Grieve is popular, well-liked and an independent voice on the council. He opposed Mayor Rogero’s pension reform plan as not going far enough to resolve fiscal issues. He is a strong advocate for greenways and additional trees. Rogero backed Democratic nominee Hancock over Hall with a financial donation last year. She is not expected to support Hancock over Grieve this time around and is appearing at an April 13 neighborhood meeting for Grieve. (This writer was a donor to Grieve in his 2009 campaign and he was a donor to all my mayoral campaigns.) ■ Alice Sellew, 91, longtime Farragut resident, recently died. She was a dedicated Republican who did the floral arrangements at countless Lincoln Day dinners and other GOP events for more than 20 years. ■ State Rep. Gloria Johnson has recommended Knoxville attorney Tammy Kaousias as predicted by this writer a few weeks ago to replace another attorney, Dennis Francis, on the Knox County Election Commission.

Victor Ashe

The other Democrat is Cassandra McGee Stuart, recommended by Rep. Joe Armstrong. This will mark the first time in Knox history that two women have served at the same time on the Election Commission. Kaousias, who is an avid political supporter of Johnson, is the first Greek American to serve on the Commission. Johnson criticized the Commission in her campaign for closing Belle Morris school as a voting precinct and holding its meetings at 8 a.m. It will be interesting to see if Kaousias and Stuart raise these issues during their 2-year term, although the GOP majority will likely vote down any requested change. Each commissioner is paid $4,017 a year and Chris Heagerty receives $998 a year more since he is the chair, for a total of $5,015. However, the most significant benefit these five persons receive is free participation in the county health insurance plan which is valued at $10,000 a year – double their salary. In effect the salary is $14,000 a year with the chair making $15,000. It is unclear why this part-time job merits tax paid health insurance. In 2012 the Commission met nine times and this year they have met once in March and plan an April meeting to swear in the members and rehire Cliff Rodgers as administrator. ■ Barbara Monty, 81, is retiring from the CACmanaged Mobile Meals program which delivers, primarily through volunteers, countless meals to the needy. She and her husband, Ken Monty, moved here 45 years ago and went to work for CAC. She became director of the Office on Aging in 1977, which today runs more than 20 programs with a $10.5 million budget. She will be honored from 4-6 p.m. Tuesday, April 16, at a reception at the Ross Building which is open to all her friends. She prefers any gifts be made to Mobile Meals. Monty has been a tireless and dedicated advocate for the less fortunate her entire life. She will be missed by many.


Driving Mr. Ramsey The tasty roast beef dinner the Union County Republicans served up in the high school for Lincoln Day didn’t lure the driver out of the big, black SUV that sat idling in the parking lot. Presumably, he was maintaining a controlled climate while awaiting the return of the Senate Speaker/Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey and his ride-along guest, state Sen. Frank Niceley, whom Ramsey had picked up in Strawberry Plains, making for a 260-mile round trip from Ramsey’s home in Bluff City (in Sullivan County) to Maynardville. The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security provides security to both the Senate and the House speakers. Ramsey’s driver, Bill Taliaferro, is paid $38.71 per hour, while House Speaker

ers are paid per diem rates for lodging and meals when overnighting away from home. Taliaferro figured prominently in a 2007 Memphis Flyer story by Jackson Baker about the changes that accompanied the overthrow of longtime Democratic Speaker John Wilder. “The old order was changing, all right – from Democratic to Republican and from west to east. The phenomenon had been underscored earlier in the week, on the night after Ramsey’s election, when Bill Taliaferro, the state trooper who had been Wilder’s plainclothes driver for well over a decade, sat down with Ramsey to discuss the matter of continuing in that role. “As Speaker (Jimmy) Naifeh would note in reporting on the matter to a couple

Betty Bean Beth Harwell’s driver makes $26.65 an hour. Both drivers are eligible for overtime and retirement benefits. Both speakers have 2011 Suburbans, but Nashville resident Harwell’s expenses are considerably less than Ramsey’s – $3,392 in gas and maintenance so far this year to Harwell’s $1,249 – because of his long commute. “The Lieutenant Governor and Speaker retain their responsibilities and title throughout the year and each is assigned security (state trooper) for protective services,” said Department of Safety spokesperson Kevin Crawford. The troop-

of his House colleagues, that probably meant that Taliaferro would have to shift his own residence eastward to accommodate the new Speaker’s needs.” Sure enough, an Internet search shows William E. Taliaferro with a Blountville address. The most common justification for such practices involves pointing out that it’s nothing new. But Republicans used to rail against Democrats’ profligate spending when they were running the show in Nashville, so more than a touch of irony sets in at the sight of members of the tough-talking, budget-slashing new majority happily settled into the practices that they once deplored. And the sight of state employees driving state vehicles to tote politicians like Mr. Speaker around the state to purely partisan events is almost as disconcerting as realizing that they don’t give a damn what we think.

Understanding the Nashville GOP The headliner at last week’s Lincoln Day Dinner in Union County was U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, but Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey stole the show. Ramsey exuded power and confidence, and he was home from Nashville with a message to tell.

Sandra Clark

“Frank and I are kindred spirits,” he said of state Sen. Frank Niceley. “Every time I sit by Frank I learn something. For instance, you either get it or you don’t get it. And if you have to ask, well, you don’t get it.” Ramsey talked about the Republican Party’s rise to power. From the state’s founding in 1796, Tennessee’s top three posts were not

held by Republicans until 2012 when Gov. Bill Haslam joined Ramsey and House Speaker Beth Harwell. For most of those 216 years, the Democratic Party controlled all three positions. In that context, it’s easy to see why the GOP is out to mess with the status quo. “You don’t want to elect Republicans and have them start acting like Democrats,” Ramsey said. Niceley, for instance, wants citizens to vote for the school superintendent but not for nominees for U.S. Senate. Ramsey said the Republicans have “cut the food tax (although he thinks far enough since it’s ‘a tax everyone pays’), cut the death tax and passed two balanced budgets, each less than the year before.” Republicans have eliminated collective bargaining in education, made tenure something to be “earned, not automatic” and are pushing for school choice. Ramsey said today

Clark “400,000 law-abiding citizens can carry and keep a firearm in a locked car.” He called for a reduction of unemployment benefits saying, “Unemployment has become a lifestyle.” After a couple of jabs at Obamacare, it was easy to see why Haslam opted not to

fight Ramsey on expanding Medicaid. Shut out of power for 200 years and believing things are headed in the wrong direction, Republicans in Nashville are not just braking the bus. They’re standing on the brakes and singing “Dixie.”

A Shopper pop quiz Shopper-News presents a pop quiz when: 1. There’s nothing else to write about. 2. There’s so much to say we can’t fit it all in. 3. We just don’t feel like being preachy. Lt. Gov.

Emory Place and Central Market HISTORY AND MYSTERIES | Dr. Jim Tumblin My fond memories of attending Sunday school at First Christian Church on the periphery of Emory Place include that interval between Sunday school and the church service, when William G. Fox (1861-1936) reached in his suit coat pocket, retrieved a stick of Walla Walla chewing gum and delivered a tasty treat to each of the children lined up before him. Fox was a senior elder of the church and treasurer of the building campaign. But through the week he was treasurer of the Walla Walla Chewing Gum Company. The company was the anchor business in the Central Market, later to be called Emory Place. According to the American Journal of Commerce (1903), W.D. Biddle established the firm on March 2, 1897, in small quarters with only five employees. Surely even William Wrigley, Chicago’s chewing gum king, would have been proud of the growth of the company, which at its height had 4050 employees producing 1,200 sticks of chewing gum each minute, some two tons each day. Until 1915, Walla Walla occupied Nos. 8 and 10 Central Market, with each 25x100-foot building consisting of four floors, equipped with steam power and up-to-date machinery. Walla Walla became the largest company of its kind in the South, and its product was marketed in 42 states by eight traveling salespeople. The company moved to 511-14 State St. and in 1950, prominent former UT athlete and business owner Herman D. “Breezy” Wynn bought the company, planning to expand it to 60 employees. Central Market first appears in the 1889 city directory, when there were 33 stalls housed in a frame structure on a wide spur of Fourth Avenue, with the City Scales on the west end and Fire Engine House No. 1 in a brick building on the east end. Old Gray Cemetery, founded in 1850, was just across Broadway from the market on the southwest corner of Holston Street (now Tyson). The downtown terminal for the Fountain Head Railway Company (“The Dummy Line”) was located on the northwest corner of that street. Early tenants in the Central Market included Thomas Owens’ fish market, Jacob Croissant’s meat market and Austin Plummer’s produce company. Others like the Knox Candy Company would come and go, with Ebenezer Kelley and Strother Lynn, Grocers, lasting for several years. The original Market House, located a mile away on Market Square, had been built in 1854 and expanded in 1897. Perhaps that expansion was the impetus for Central Market’s transition about the turn of the last century from small markets to larger factory-like businesses and more substantial brick buildings. When “Market” no longer described its mission, the powers that be sought another name. The New Market Train Wreck of Sept. 24, 1904, was on everyone’s mind. Two Southern Railway passenger trains traveling at high speeds had collided head-on in the worst transportation disaster in area history. It was first announced that there were 56 killed and 106 injured but the toll grew as some of the

injured died and as more facts emerged. Perhaps the best-known casualty was 74-year old the Rev. Isaac Emory who, after funeral services at Second Presbyterian Church, was interred in Old Gray Cemetery with a footstone reading “The Children’s Friend.” Born in 1830, the Rev. Emory, a native of Fulton, N.Y., graduated from Lane Theological Seminary in Cincinnati and became a missionary for the American

Sunday School Union. He arrived in Knoxville in 1865 at the end of the Civil War. Knoxville had a population of 7,000 at the time and only a few of its churches had Sunday schools. The Rev. Emory soon succeeded in establishing 26 of them locally, from which several churches grew. Traveling by buggy, train and steamboat, he canvassed Chattanooga and Nashville, and established many more. But, over the years, his major progress was in “backwoods” areas where he started Sunday schools in which the membership eventually totaled more than 50,000. Along the way he influenced many to enter the ministry and a short while before the tragedy was elected moderator of the Knoxville Presbytery. After his death, the name change just seemed a logical choice and the Central Market became Emory Place. The Rev. Emory’s farm was in the Arlington community of north Knoxville. His son, Charles M. Emory, established Arlington Gardens there after his father’s death. He sold vegetable plants grown in beds or in some of the first hothouses in Knoxville.

named its two boulevards Fairmont and Emoriland, again honoring his father. The 1903 Sanborn’s Fire Map shows the WhittleSpence Trunk and Bag Company, with R.D. Whittle as president, occupying a large building in the elbow-shaped center of Emory Place. R.D. was the younger brother of James M. Whittle, who established Whittle Springs Hotel. Walla Walla Chewing Gum Co. occupied lots 8 and 10, but there were few other occupants. In 1910 St. John’s Lutheran Church acquired two lots at the southwest entrance to Emory Place and completed their historic sanctuary in 1913.

Its changed character from a market with stalls to free-standing buildings was shown on the 1917 Sanborn’s Fire Map. The church, the Crescent Steam Laundry and the O.J. Smith Cabinet Co. were on the right side. On the left were the Hinton Laundry and Dry Cleaning Co., the U.S. Post Office and the Walla Walla Chewing Gum Company. Emory Place has experienced a renaissance thanks to the efforts of architect and city council member L. Duane Grieve. He purchased Nos. 8, 10 and 12 Emory Place in 1982, gutted the buildings, replaced the wiring and plumbing,

installed sprinklers and updated the historic façade. Commendably, only after that considerable expense did he apply for and win a federal block grant that transformed a surface parking lot into an attractive pocket park and enhanced all the properties in Emory Place, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places on Nov. 10, 1994.

Record audience for Peyton I predict record attendance for Tennessee’s football coaching clinic this weekend. For $40, high school coaches can get three square meals, a souvenir gift bag and a batch of helpful stuff to take home. They’ll be treated to a Butch Jones pep talk, presentations plus Q&A opportunities with UT assistant coaches and a few words of wisdom from some of their own, prep coaches with championship credentials. I predict the clinic highlight (I want to say this gently to not offend the host) will be the keynote address by Peyton Manning. The legendary quarterback, almost always busy studying opponents’ defenses and shooting commercials, doesn’t make this kind of appearance very often. He did it for Phillip Fulmer in 2002. That Jones could get him on his first try says something significant about the new coach establishing relations with former Tennessee players.

Marvin West

Manning, in the top level of old Volunteers and an astounding success in the NFL, has kept Tennessee football in his heart. Some of his money is in the almost lavish Peyton Manning dressing room under the north end of Neyland Stadium. Some more of his money funds Peyton Manning scholarships, $7,000 per year for four years, minimum eligibility 3.7 GPA. Macy Harrison from Frisco, Texas, and Chris Barnes from Hardin Valley Academy were 2012 recipients. The part I like best is Manning shows up to present the scholarships. This is for real. Manning did his fair share as a football Vol – 33 school records, eight Southeastern Conference records and two

NCAA records. He produced 11,020 yards and 89 touchdown passes. He ran for 12 scores. No kidding. He graduated early – with honors – and stayed for his senior season. Getting drafted No. 1 did not change him into an egotistical monster. Winning and millions may have added another degree of confidence and a second or two to his colorful checkoffs and animated adjustments at the line of scrimmage but that’s just show biz. In fact, from my distance, he appears to be much as he always was. As famous athletes go, Manning does it about as well as you could ask. He sometimes yells at receivers but picks up the check when they go out to dinner. He still puts in the hours to maintain his level of play. He loves life but lives with dignity. He is rich beyond reason but generous beyond belief. Peyton and wife Ashley established the PeyBack Foundation in 1999 “to promote success of disadvantaged youth by assisting programs

Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. (Hebrews 13: 1-2 NRSV) They aren’t strangers at all, but they do regularly qualify as angels. My friends John and Anne called unexpectedly today. Earlier, I had been talking to a colleague when my cell phone buzzed. I checked it and saw that it was Anne, and thought, “I will call her back later, after work.” Then things got busy, and

I was consumed by reports and trying to figure out where in the world check number 1240 had gotten to. (Bank accounts have been the bane of my existence recently, but that is a column for another day. Trust me when I tell you I am nothing if not stubborn when it comes to balancing my personal checkbook. However,

this was a business check, and I have to figure out its disappearance, sometime between now and soon!) My phone rang again, later in the afternoon, and it was Anne. She said, “We are about an hour and a half from Knoxville.” I had no idea they were anywhere south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

that provide leadership and growth opportunities.” Some in Knoxville have been recipients. He tried to do as much for Indianapolis as it did for him. Example: In 2007, St. Vincent Hospital renamed its child care segment “Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent.” Some kids want to go there even when they aren’t sick or hurt. I don’t have a scorecard but youth organizations in Indiana, Tennessee and Louisiana, from whence he came, have received more than $4 million from PeyBack. Hundreds of needy families in Denver got free Thanksgiving dinners. Peyton’s NFL accomplishments are many – 12 Pro Bowls, four MVPs, six all-pro awards, the individual trophy from Super Bowl XLI. You might have missed the Whizzer White Humanitarian Award and the John Wooden Award from Athletes for a Better World. Manning has been named the most caring athlete. He has been honored as the Walter Payton man of the year. He received the Good Guy award from the SportThese are the friends who (22 years ago) helped us pack up our lives in New Jersey, preparatory to moving back to Tennessee. We had been here less than two weeks, striving mightily to renovate a neglected farmhouse, when they showed up, tools in hand, and helped clean and paint and actually unpack. That is no exaggeration! Anne unpacked the very boxes she had packed for me in New Jersey and put my kitchen together for me in Tennessee. Like I said: angels they are! I remember standing in the driveway at the end of

His I do believe he’ll draw address is that two weeks, and watching them drive away. I didn’t know when I would see them again. The awful thought struck me: What have I done? Two years after that summer, they spent a month with us exploring the American West: two vans filled to the brim with camping equipment, six kids ranging in age from five to 17, four adults, as well as various and assorted forms of entertainment for the teenagers who eventually were bored by mountains and scenic vistas. Since that time, we have managed a visit at least once

a year, sometimes twice. We have shared in family weddings, and have advised, encouraged and supported each other. We have listened, and cared, and sometimes disagreed. So here they were driving into town, and I was still at work, trying to find the errant check. But because it was John and Anne, I knew they would find their way to me, and we would have a great evening, and it would all be comfortable and easy, and we would pick up right where we left off. Because that is the way it is with “chosen family:” they are angels, and they are always welcome.

Food in the Fort Redeeming Hope offers food justice By Wendy Smith

Redeeming Hope Ministries provides groceries, legal help and assistance from social workers during Food in the Fort, held on first and third Wednesdays at Redeemer Church of Knoxville. Eddie Young, president of Redeeming Hope and a minister at Redeemer Church, offers something else, as well. “They come see me because they need spiritual care, or somebody to love on them a little to reaffirm their worth and dignity,” he says. Between 100 and 120 people attend Food in the Fort. Fifty to 70 come on second and fourth Wednesdays for Café Days, where they receive a free, healthy meal. But the two events are about more than filling bellies. They’re also an effort to provide food justice – access to high quality food for everyone, Young says. Most of the food distributed during Food in the Fort comes from Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee, but the nonprofit is partnering with Beardsley Community Farm to grow its own produce. Two weeks ago, Redeeming Hope had its first planting at Beardsley, and Food in the Fort patrons

Butch Eddins and Ainsley Huddy assist Bill Every, center, at Food in the Fort, a project of Redeeming Hope Ministries. Photo by Wendy Smith were able to help out because Knoxville Area Transit donated bus tickets. A second planting is scheduled for this week. The nonprofit has seen a rise in the number of homeless who attend Food in the Fort. That changes the type of food that can be distributed, Young says. The homeless typically have dental issues that keep them from eating hard foods, like carrots. And they don’t have a way to keep food refrigerated.

He plans to ask a handful of the ministry’s homeless friends to keep a food diary to see what they ingest daily. “So much of what happens in the gut is tied to emotional and psychological well-being.” Redeeming Hope also publishes “The Amplifier,” a newspaper that educates the public about the issue of homelessness and provides an economic opportunity to the needy. Those who sell the newspa-

per are licensed to solicit and pay for the papers out of donations they collect. “The whole purpose is to give them a voice and deconstruct the myths that some have about homelessness.” Young says he’s encouraged by Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero, who has shown a renewed commitment to end homelessness. “She feels a sense of urgency about this that we’ve not had in the past.”

Bearden High’s bridges receive high point trophy Bearden High School was awarded the high point trophy from the East Tennessee Model Bridge Building contest. The school had the most bridges with the highest structural efficiency ratio. Senior Dalton Chaffee earned second place and $100, and senior Hayes Griffin earned third place and $50. Chaffee will advance to the International Bridge Building contest Friday, April 26, in Chicago. The objective of the contest is to build a model bridge, according to prescribed size and weight specifications, that is capable of supporting the greatest load per unit of mass. Engineers check the model bridges for specific weight and dimension guidelines before the bridges are tested. Pictured at the East Tennessee competition held at the American Museum of Science and Energy are Hayes Griffin, physics teacher William Schult and students Jack Li, J.J.

Shopper-News Presents Miracle Makers

‘The hardest fun you’ll ever have’ By Betty Bean The Farragut High School Robotics Team Jane Skinner and Jill Hudson with the Farragut is an extracurricular High Robotics Team’s robot. Photo by Betty Bean activity for which the students receive no extra credit and the sponsors receive no extra pay. So what is it that keeps Jill Hudson and Jane Skinner volunteering to work 30-40 additional hours per week while keeping up with their day jobs? They both grin. Hudson: “It’s not the money.” Skinner: “I guess if it were easy, we wouldn’t keep coming back. We wouldn’t be challenged.” Hudson: “If it were easy, everybody would do it.” Skinner: “And they just don’t know how much fun we’re having.” Hudson, who is from the Nashville area, teaches technology and engineering in Farragut’s Career and Technical Education department. Skinner, who is from Indiana, teaches science and is the lab and technology coordinator for Farragut’s science department. Back in 2009, Hudson had been looking at a variety of robotics programs and was feeling overwhelmed. “I decided there was no way one person could do it,” she said.

The Smoky Mountain Regional FIRST Robotics competition kickoff party was on the first Saturday in January, when this year’s game – Ultimate Ascent, the objective of which was to shoot Frisbees into goals, culminating in robots climbing to the top of tri-level towers – was announced at a party on the UT campus, where the kits were processed and distributed. And it’s not just about building robots. “There are lots of other things

They’ll have a robotics camp for rising 7th through 9th graders in June, a pancake breakfast in October and a Boy Scouts merit badge event in November. Skinner described the competition’s atmosphere as “gracious professionalism,” and said there’s a new word to describe the atmosphere – “cooperation” “It’s not cutthroat – it’s not us against them. It’s how can we help them,” Hudson said. “In the first game, there’s no competition at all; just running around asking other teams, “How can I help you?” In later rounds, teams will be chosen for alliances, but in the early rounds, nobody knows who their competitors will be. Halls, Hardin Valley and Oak Ridge’s alliance took first place at the Smoky Mountain Regionals on March 28-30. “It’s so much better when everybody works together,” Hudson said. “That’s one of the things we like about this and is something our mentors notice.” It all adds up to a new and unique learning experience. “Everybody works together and we all get better. It’s competitive, but you’re raising the bar for everyone.” “It’s not winner takes all,” Hudson said. “And ‘winner’ is a very vague word. You can have a great robot and not go to the finals. We win every year. We may not always bring home trophies, but we win every year. You’re not going to see a sign on the road that says ‘Home of 2013 Regional Robotics Champions,’ but we win through so many other routes. A lot of people call it the hardest fun you’ll ever have.” “That’s the big hook,” Skinner said. “They like learning and so do we. We’re lifelong learners.”

Find the right flush for your bathroom with my toilet tips. A one piece toilet is sleeker, easier to clean and has fewer places for yuck to live. Two piece toilets are economical, easy to install and the bowl or tank can be replaced. Toilet height is measured from floor to rim. Standard is 14-inches; chair height is 16 to 17-inches and ADA compliant. There’s even a 10-inch model perfect for potty training. Round, compact elongated or elongated … oh my! Small powder rooms may only have space for a round or compact model that extends about 27 ½-inches. Elongated are the most popular extending 29 ½-inches. The EPA WaterSense folks say older toilets use 3.5 to 7 gallons per flush (gpf). Geez! That’s a lot! The government says the max flush can’t be more than 1.6 gpf. A WaterSense labeled toilet uses 1.28 gpf and can save a family of four more than $90 a year on their water bill. There’s also a dual flusher with a partial and full flush that uses as little as 1.0 gpf. Other stuff that divas typically don’t care about … The flush valve is inside the tank. A large opening allows the water to pass through faster for a quick flush. Valve sizes are 2-inch, 3-inch or the mack-daddy, 4-inch.

Raising the standard of living for people almost half a world away is being made possible by one of the companies with whom Knoxville’s Modern Supply works to provide consistently high-quality products to its customers. American Standard, a leading manufacturer of a wide range of building products, including faucets, fixtures, vitreous china fixtures and other wellness items for both kitchen and bath, recently turned its attention to Bangladesh and to the lack of adequate toilet facilities in much of the country. It is a region of the world where water is scarce and sewer infrastructure doesn’t exist. Open pit latrines allow disease to spread through direct and indirect contact with human waste. Observing the situation, engineers noted that even though residents using the pits dump water on the waste, flying insects still carry disease to the outside. As a result, engineers from American Standard developed SaTo (derived from “Safe Toilet”), a cost-effective and hygienic latrine pan that uses an ingeniously simple mechanical seal and water seal to reduce disease transmission by closing off pit latrines to the open air.

American Standard teams also visited manufacturing facilities to assess existing capabilities and cost structures in order to develop a solution that could be economically mass produced in Southeast Asia.

Trip bridges generation gap Members of Friendship Force of Knoxville typically use international travel to build global goodwill through friendship. But members Ron and Jean Mayer used a trip last summer to strengthen ties with family – and the past. They spoke at last week’s meeting. Jean’s grandmother, Julia Kantor, emigrated to the U.S. from the tiny village of Revleanyvar, Hungary, in 1910. Her father died and her mother remarried, and after Julia lost two brothers to the war, she was ready for a new start. She departed in steerage aboard the RMS Carpathia, which would later rescue Titanic survivors and be torpedoed by the Germans. She lost her suitcase on the trip, so she arrived in the U.S. with nothing. But she found a home with a brother in New Jersey, and made a living cleaning floors in a cigar factory, though she spoke no English. The Mayers took two teenage grandchildren on

the 18-day trip to Eastern Europe, and spent a day in Revleanyvar. They also visited Prague, Budapest and Vienna, and toured Auschwitz concentration camp near Krakow, Poland, where they saw shoes and personal items left behind by those who were exterminated. Ron learned that millions of Poles were executed along with the Jews. “This is something you can’t read about, but you can experience it,” he said. Ron wasn’t sure the teens were appreciating what they saw – until he read his granddaughter’s blog. “They took everything in.” Upcoming Friendship Force events include hosting members from Saskatoon,

Both women tried climbing for the first time last week during the Climbing Center’s Ladies’ Night, which happens on the first Monday of every month. The event gives beginners the opportunity to learn with additional support from two experienced climbers – Laura Duncan and Kim Nielson. Climbing can be scary initially because it’s something new, said Duncan. “But it’s awesome because they realize they can do it.” Olivia Cecil is the center’s sole female employee. She picked up the skill when she participated in Webb School’s climbing team. The sport is addictive, she says, and she enjoys encouraging young climbers. Climbing instructor Mark Large was also on hand to offer his expertise. Women are sometimes better climbers than men because they are generally more graceful and flexible. “It’s almost a feeling of dancing,” he said.

Spring break service

Twelve members of the UT Habitat for Humanity Campus Chapter spent their spring break working on houses rather than suntans in Lakeland, Fla. The group worked on both a new build as well as a house in Habitat for Humanity’s new repair program. Sean Smith, a biochemistry and anthropology major, is president of the student group. The trip was rewarding and fun, he says, though fun wasn’t the primary goal. “We went to the beach once, but it was pretty cold.” The student organization is now getting ready for a fundraiser – the Deep Well Farm Mud Run on April 20 in Lenoir City. The group hopes to raise $20,000 so it can be a Covenant Sponsor on a new Habitat for Humanity home. Info: http://dwfmudrun.

Paideia Academy’s halls host fundraisers Nicene Hall March Madness Mark Baker receives a pass while Ken Tanner and Bruce Hairston press in.

Paideia Academy parents and teachers, outfitted in gray and gold jerseys, warmed up on the basketball court in the Cedar Springs church gymnasium last Friday night. They were hoping to make good passes, hit crucial free throws and shots and, most importantly, raise money for Paideia Academy’s Nicene Hall. The stands were packed with students, parents and faculty ready to cheer on their favorite teams, and the line for concessions stayed busy most of the night. Before and after the players took the court, students had some free play shooting on the goals. Parents and teachers from Nicene and Apostles Halls faced off in a lively basketball game. The game was close and had lots of stars making big plays. Team Nicene started off strong and led the first half. Jim Norris and Greg Kenny were top scorers for the gray, with Hall Dean Ryan Garner putting up a few baskets. Kenny

was taken out with a torn Achilles tendon just before the half, giving the rest of the game up to Team Apostles. Ken Franse came away with 16 points for the gold, hitting a couple of three-pointers in the second half. Chris Meystrik took several good rebounds for Team Apostles, shutting down Nicene for a 30-22 win. Halftime was full of action with the moment that had been the teaser for the whole event: seeing math teacher Jonathan Kenigson dunk the ball. He competed against the two hall deans, Garner and Mark Baker, in a dunk contest. They were helped along a bit with lowered goals. Garner’s fancy spin moves earned him the win. Students also participated in various halftime free throw contests. Quint Badgett and Bryson McClurkin were the three-point challenge winners for cash prizes, and several others won free hotdogs with half-court shots.

Scott Campen (right) goes for a layup through a block by Chris Meystrik. “This highly anticipated event really delivered. I’m sure that Nicene Hall will be hoping to take back the trophy at next year’s game. Either way, our students are the real winners,” said James Cowart, Paideia Academy headmaster.

Playground completed First grader Cameron Kim accepts the award for Best Overall Performance for her violin solo from Apostles Hall Dean Mark Baker.

Apostles Hall Talent Show Apostles Hall held their Talent Show fundraiser earlier in the year. Students auditioned for 16 spots in the show. Judges were teachers Ryan Garner and Jonathan Kenigson, and piano teacher Joy Cowart. “Mrs. Cowart is the expert on the panel,” said Garner. “We’re just the color commentators.” Apostles Hall Dean Mark Baker emceed the event. Students brought pillows, bean bags and camp chairs to line the floor of the lunchroom in front of the stage. Parents filled in behind for a full house. The atmosphere was one of genuine support for the performers.

Entertainers from 1st through 9th grades took to the stage, primarily presenting musical solos and duets. All of the acts were of age-appropriate quality and well-rehearsed, although everyone seemed to agree on the specialness of the winners’ pieces. First grader Cameron Kim was the overall winner with her violin solo “Gavotte” by F.J. Gossec. Sixth graders Ellie Platillero and Kensi Gray took Best Vocals with their duet. Sixth grader Andrew Campen was awarded Most Creative with the only non-musical performance: his gymnastics routine on a pommel horse. Third grader Nathan Thompson received

Paideia Academy’s new playground is complete and open for play. “We are grateful to all of our Playground Partners who donated nearly $80,000 over the past few months to provide this exciting addition to our campus,” said Steve Bethel, Development Director. Throughout the first day after its completed installation, students took turns writing prayers and posting them on the play structure to be collected and prayed over by other classes. This day of dedication concluded with the School of Rhetoric students and staff gathering for prayer and song.

the People’s Choice Award for his entertaining harmonica piece, and 9th graders Salem Spicka (bass guitar), Kimberly Tanner (keyboard), John Sadler (guitar) and Matthew Menard (vocals) brought down the house with their finale of “In Christ Alone” by Getty and Townend, winning Best Instrumentation. “The entire evening was really special,” said Paideia parent Caroline Badgett. “All of the performances were wonderful, but I especially treasured the judges’ comments. They were so uplifting and sought to remind the students that their talents are gifts from God to be used for His glory.”

Each event raised a few hundred dollars for its respective hall through sales of admissions tickets and refreshments. The halls use this money for various items throughout the year, like athletic jerseys and materials for their school auction projects. The events also give students the opportunity to build leadership skills through planning and service. Students are responsible for developing the itinerary, promoting the event, stocking the concession stand, organizing volunteers, setting up and cleaning up afterward. “The events are a lot of work, but they’re also lots of fun,” said student Ayden Case.

Fort Sanders caters to unique needs of older adults Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center has been designated as a Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders (NICHE) hospital by the New York University College of Nursing. Fort Sanders joins a distinguished network of hospitals that demonstrate dedication to improving the quality of care provided to older adults. NICHE is a nationwide effort to better meet the unique health care needs of aging adults across America. Covenant Health is the first health care system in the state, and the only one in East Tennessee, to implement the specialized services that NICHE offers at Fort Sanders Regional. “As a NICHE hospital, our patients experience a geriatric standard of care by staff trained to recognize geriatric syndromes,” explains Stan Boling, Covenant Health’s Vice President of Senior Services. Fort Sanders Regional has been identified as one of the top

10 hospitals in the country that has performed exceptionally in disseminating knowledge and incorporating validated protocols for geriatric care into nursing practice. Fort Sanders has also participated in research projects sponsored by NICHE. “We’re involved in validating research that looks at the differences between adults and seniors when it comes to hospitalization,” says Boling. Older adult patients often have multiple chronic illnesses and reduced function that may be both physical and cognitive. These issues can affect that patient’s success after they’re discharged from the hospital. “The care of the older adult presents a different set of challenges that all health care team members should be aware of, and should assess on admission, during the acute care stay and all the way through to the discharge setting,” explains Boling.

“The care of the older adult presents a different set of challenges that all health care team members should be aware of.” – Stan Boling, Covenant Health VP of Senior Services

NICHE provides nurses with specialized training related to common health problems of older adults. These include issues such as skin breakdown, falls/injuries, confusion or loss of strength/mobility. NICHEcertified gerontological nurses offer patients and families a high standard of care and resources while promoting patients’ independence and facilitating a comfortable transition home. The NICHE program recognizes that patient and family-centered care is imperative to creating a positive experience for the older adult patient “With NICHE there are training and resources available for the family as well as senior spousal caregivers,” says Boling. “We are excited about the effort we’re making with NICHE.” For more information about the NICHE program and resources for older patients and their families, visit

Preventing falls important for seniors As you age, your risk for falling increases. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) more than one-third of people ages 65 and older fall each year. Although most falls cause only minor injuries, the CDC estimates that up to 30 percent of the people who fall experience injuries that severely limit their independence. Falls can happen anywhere, but most occur in the home. Here are some tips to help keep you safe: ■ Get your hearing and vision checked regularly before you notice problems. ■ Talk with your doctor about whether your medications can make you feel dizzy. ■ Tell your physician or health care provider if you are experiencing balance problems. ■ Try not to stand up quickly. Before standing, wiggle your toes and feet, and swing your legs, if possible. Move enough to increase your heart rate and blood pressure, then stand up.

■ If you feel unsteady on your feet, use a cane or walker. Wear shoes with non-slip soles. ■ Exercise regularly. Exercise helps strengthen your muscles and improve your agility. ■ Limit your consumption of alcohol. ■ Keep your home free of clutter. ■ Eliminate slippery floors and throw rugs. ■ Add handrails and supports in your home. Grab bars in the shower and on either side of the toilet can prevent falls. ■ Improve the lighting in dark areas and use a nightlight if you get out of bed at night.

For more information, check out the CDC’s Fall Prevention resources at

NICHE, which stands for “Nurses Improving Care for Healthsystem Elders,” is an innovative program designed to help hospitals improve the care of older adults. The goal of NICHE is for every patient age 65 and over to be given sensitive and exemplary care. The mission of NICHE is to provide the tools and principles to change the culture of health care facilities to achieve patientcentered for seniors. The NICHE program, based at the Hartford Institute for Geriatric Nursing at New York University College of Nursing, consists of more than 350 hospitals and health care facilities throughout North America. NICHE hospitals recognize that

older adult patients have special needs and that patient and familycentered care is important to creating a positive experience for the senior patient. Families provide a vital link between the patient and hospital staff. Hospital nurses are in a unique position to work with families as partners to provide quality care to hospitalized older adult patients. It is also important to have informed, involved patients who understand and participate in their care. The NICHE program is committed to creating a hospital culture where the main focus is on patients and their families. As a result, NICHE hospitals have a higher patient, family and staff satisfaction overall.

No place like home It’s spring, and, as in June, things are “bustin’ out all over.” Everything’s blooming. It’s a beautiful sight.

Carol Zinavage

Carol’s Critter Corner Sadly, however, it’s not a beautiful sight over at YoungWilliams Animal Center. Because along with the daffodils and dogwoods comes another symptom of the season: unwanted animals. “Starting in the spring, the shelter usually receives an influx of puppies in need of homes,” says Young-Williams CEO Jeff Ashin. “It’s the start of mating season for dogs and cats, and unfortunately, many people have not spayed or neutered their pets and end up with litters of animals that they cannot care for.” The shelter is currently filled to capacity.


Zura and Zina are best friends who would like to find a forever home together. Photo submitted

In order to encourage adoptions and clear space desperately needed for the daily intake of unwanted animals, Young-Williams is reducing fees for all dog adoptions. Now through April 14, it’s offering $50 off the adoption fee for all puppies and $25 off the adoption fee for all adult dogs. That brings the fees down to $100 and $50 respectively. It’s a steal. That fee includes more than $600 worth of veterinary care: a physical exam, spay/neuter

Parkview resident Vivian Baker enjoys spending most of her time with her roommate, 8-year-old miniature poodle Maggie Mae. The pair has been inseparable since Baker’s husband passed away eight years ago. Baker got the miniature poodle as a puppy “when she was just fluff,” said the Clinton native. She missed having a companion and Maggie – named after the Rod Stewart pop hit – filled the void. If Baker plays cards in the afternoon, Maggie is right by her side. Baker rarely leaves her furry

happened to me before. And of course, puppies are new to the world and haven’t had any problems yet. But my little guy needed some help. Now, as I watch him sleeping peacefully on the rug with his favorite stuffed toy, I’m reminded that the rewards of owning a shelter dog – of literally saving a life – are immeasurable.

surgery, DAPP and Kennel Cough vaccinations, heartworm test, and one month of heartworm prevention, standard deworming, one month of flea prevention, nail trim and ear cleaning, and microchipping with registration. On Feb. 3 of this year, I adopted a shelter dog. He’s a Corgi/Shepherd mix, and I named him Barney Fife because he’s small, he’s full of bravado and he howls off-key. Barney had already been surrendered back to the shelter by one adoptive family. Like most dogs, he’s intelligent and sensitive; after so many hard knocks, he wasn’t sure he could trust his new home and situation. He was fearful, clingy and needy – a “velcro dog” – and he needed constant reassurance. I did a little reading about Barney’s various problems. Turns out they’re quite common, and not only in shelter dogs. With just a little effort on my part, Barney began to turn around. A Gentle Leader leash helped him learn to heel on our walks. A crate helped him to feel safe. He easily learned some simple commands. He’s become

much happier and calmer. He’s developed an affectionate friendship with my four (shelter) cats. I’m telling you this because you may have reservations about shelter pets. Yes, they’ve been through some stuff. Yes, they may have behavioral problems at first. On the other hand, you may luck out and get one who settles right in; it’s

SHOPPER-NEWS • APRIL 8, 2013 • B-3


Provision member achieves outstanding results By Shana Raley-Lusk When it comes to the impact that Provision Health and Wellness has had on her life, Mindy Schultz-Fee cannot contain her excitement.

Mindy Schultz-Fee before losing 30 pounds.

“I cannot even begin to tell you what a fabulous place Provision is,” she says. A Provision member since 2010, Mindy counts her decision to join as one of the best she has ever made. The professionals at Provision give Mindy all the tools she needs to reach her goals and embrace her healthy new lifestyle. “The staff was so welcoming and encouraging,” she says. “I did feel at first intimidated, but the staff was so supportive that the intimidation went away quickly.”

Provision will be hosting a Spin-A-Thon fundraiser to benefit the American Cancer Society’s Relay for Life 6 a.m. to 7 p.m. Friday, April 19. Participants may ride as long as they wish and as hard as their hearts desire! Pledge your own time or sponsor a friend with a minimum $5 donation for each 30-minute ride. All proceeds benefit the American Cancer Society. Call 232-1414 to sign up for your time slot!

When she joined Provision, Mindy could not do more than five sit-ups. “I was reminded by the staff that that was five more than what I could do the week before,” she remembers. “It was the positivity that kept me pushing to improve week by week.” Mindy’s original goal was to lose 30 pounds before her trip to Ibiza in September 2011. “I knew I was going to be miserable if I could not get into a bathing suit,” she says. By January 2011, she was ready for the next step. At Provision, she was able to get the help of a personal trainer who was also a registered dietitian. “I realized that losing weight is not just about cardio, it is about the food I eat. I did not go on a diet, but started really looking at what my food was made of.” Her new trainer made her feel more confident in using weights and suggested new types of exercise that would help her see improvements in the areas she needed most. After reaching her initial goal of losing 30 pounds, Mindy has stayed with Provision and has been able to keep that weight off. “I have new goals for trying to tone better and incorporate yoga into my life,” she says.

Provision make the experience even more enjoyable for Mindy. “We love seeing new people in our class. We all know how they feel,” she says. “No one cares what you look like. We are just glad you are there.”

Her favorite of all the classes offered at Provision is the spin class. Mindy encourages others who are looking to make a lifestyle change to visit Provision. “If you listen to the staff, you will see changes

and you will get the results you want,” she says. “They are there for you every step of the way. This place has really changed the way I feel about myself.” Info: 865-232-1414 or www.livewellknoxville. com

Duathlon/Triathlon Training Program

This eight-week program focuses on the physical conditioning needed to complete a sprint to Olympic distance triathlon/ duathlon. Class will include pre- and post-biometric reading and heart rate training information and weekly training plans for biking, running and swimming workouts. Race day simulation training and nutrition for training will also be explored. Training starts April 9, 5:30 to 7 p.m.

Yoga for Athletes Beginning on April 17, Provision will offer a six-week yoga program, ideal for athletes as well as anyone looking to increase balance and range of motion. The practice of yoga will bring your body into balance and open areas of tightness

that are constantly strengthened through training. Yoga’s internal focus centers your attention on your body’s movements rather than an external outcome. This is a great yoga series for anyone.

Join us for our Healthy Living Series! “Eat right, your way, every day.” The professionals at Provision are offering a two-part healthy living series this month. It will focus on incorporating balance and moderation for optimal nutrition and longterm success. This series will provide an overview of how to include smart nutritional choices in any lifestyle. It is free to Provision members. Non-members are welcome and may participate for a small fee. The next session is at noon and 5:30 p.m. Thursday, April 18.

Cape-less crusader

Buscetta Award winner followed dream into nursing The white uniform and pointy hat were pretty neat stuff, but it was the long blue cape that won Liz Clary over to nursing. Of course, she was only 6 but her parents had unknowingly set their daughter on a path to nursing by giving her an English book with a picture of nurses wearing white uniforms and blue capes. “I was so impressed with their uniform that, I must confess, I was more interested in getting that cape than I was with the functions of a nurse,” Clary said with a laugh recently. “However, as I matured, I began to realize the potential impact that a nurse has to improve a patient’s healing process. It sounds corny, but it is the nurse’s wisdom of health and her power of spreading kindness, humor and gentleness that promotes healing. That still excites me!” That much is evident as Clary, director of patient care services at Peninsula Hospital, was recently presented Covenant Health’s 2013 Buscetta Award, given to outstanding managers who personify leadership excellence. It is named for Samuel R. Buscetta, retired executive vice president for human resources, who was instrumental in launching Covenant Health’s Journey to Excellence initiative. Nominations for the award were submitted by Covenant Health’s senior leaders, and Clary was selected from among seven finalists who were evaluated in areas such as quality, service, growth, finance/cost management and developing people, along with achievements related to systemwide alignment and innovation. Upon receiving the award from Covenant CEO Tony Spezia, Clary said that “working for Covenant Health has been the greatest journey of my life.” It has, indeed, been quite a journey. Clary has worked for Covenant Health organizations for 30 years, having begun at Fort Sanders Regional between her junior and senior years at Tennessee Tech. After graduating in 1981 with a Bachelor of Science in nursing, she became a staff nurse at Methodist Medical Center in 1982. “I was extremely nervous,” she recounts of her first year in nursing. “But I found everyone to be friendly and supportive. It took me about a year to finally feel competent. I was much more polished in my clinical skills and critical-thinking skills but knew that every day was new with different clinical situations and opportunities to learn. That is the beauty of nursing – you learn something new each day, both clinically and from the standpoint of human behavior and reactions to illness.”

Liz Clary of Peninsula Hospital is 2013 Buscetta Award winner.

She eventually became nurse manager over MMC’s cardiac unit. By 2008, however, she was looking for new challenges and accepted a post as risk manager at Peninsula Hospital, a 155-bed treatment center for the mentally ill and those addicted to drugs and/or alcohol. “I wanted to learn a new function of healthcare in a completely different environment,” said Clary, who had never worked with the mentally ill in all her years of nursing. She also thought she wanted to “move away from management,” but eight weeks after becoming risk manager, she was given the opportunity to become manager of patient care. Surprising herself, she quickly accepted because she felt she could “make a difference – not through my psychiatric knowledge but through my nursing knowledge in how to keep people safe.” It was her solution-oriented approach to problems that caught the attention of Jeff Dice, vice-president of Peninsula Behavioral Health. “My first impression of Liz was that of a very patient- and staff-centered leader,” said Dice. “She looks for what’s the right thing to do for patients and how to make that solution work. She’s a very good listener, is always seeking input from all the participants of an issue. Her attitude has

done a great deal in improving the morale at Peninsula, and that improves patient care.” Clary, however, confesses that her knowledge of mental health was limited in the beginning. “When I interviewed for the Risk Management position, I was struck by how little I knew about mental health and the important role that these employees were serving to help their patients,” said Clary. “I was embarrassed that I never bothered to try to understand mental health better and that in all of my opportunities to learn in my nursing career that it was the one thing I had ignored.” “If any of my cardiac patients were depressed, I would just give them the ‘cheerleading theme’ of how lucky they were to have a second chance in life, and I never thought to just listen,” she added. “I have since learned that you cannot separate mental health from physical health. I love the concept of treating the patient from a holistic point of view, which I think mental health providers do well. Mental health providers are wonderfully patient and kind people who give their patients hope.” Today, Clary is regarded as one of East Tennessee’s greatest mental health advocates. Not only did she smooth the transition following the closure of the state men-

She says a lack of funding remains one of the greatest challenges for mental health in East Tennessee, but believes that is no excuse. “It is our responsibility to think outside the box for different approaches to the delivery of care,” she says. “We in the mental health community need to do a better job of partnering with each other and the State to develop the best model to provide mental health coverage. … It takes an entire community to care for people with mental illness.” A blue cape, however, is not needed.
