Smith not running Knox County Commissioner R. Larry Smith says he’s not a candidate for trustee, not now or in 2014. “I was outspoken during the time the trustee (John Duncan) was under investigation, but not because I wanted his job,” said Smith. “I think it’s absurd that county employees could get $3,000 every year for eight hours of continuing education, and it’s even more so when they have someone else take their tests.” Duncan III resigned last week after pleading guilty to official misconduct. Smith runs an insurance agency and owns commercial rental property in Halls and Fountain City. – S. Clark

Crawford urges museum at Lakeshore Park By W By Wendy end en dy Smith dy Smi mith ith As a former employee of Eastern State Psychiatric Hospital, Claud Crawford thinks a museum dedicated to the history of the facility should be a part of Lakeshore Park. He fears that much of the hospital’s history has already been lost. He remembers reading a 19th-century description of the superintendent’s job that was written when the facility was named East Tennessee Asylum for the Insane. At the time, the hospital’s maximum capacity was 250, and the superintendent was required to wish everyone a “pleasant good night,” he says. Crawford doesn’t recall what happened to the job description, but he thinks it may be gone forever. Another important document that has been lost is the record of those interred at the hospital’s cemetery, which is located behind the East Tennessee State Veterans Cemetery on Lyon’s View Drive. Crawford toured the cemetery, which dates back to the late 1880s, with the Shopper News. A few hundred graves are simply marked with numbers. A dozen or so have headstones that were installed by family members.
Claud Crawford, a former employee of Eastern State Psychiatric Hospital, counts marked graves at a cemetery where former patients are buried. While there are only a few hundred marked graves, there may be as many as 6,000 buried in the cemetery. Photo by Wendy Smith According to Knox County cemetery historian Robert McGinnis, there may be as many as 6,000 former patients buried in the cemetery. Before last year, family members could request information about where their loved ones were buried, he says, but when the hospital closed, all records were destroyed.
The history of Eastern State isn’t all pretty, according to Crawford. He had a doctorate in counseling when he began working at the hospital in 1970, but he didn’t have the opportunity to do much counseling. He was in charge of Lonas Hall and the Jane Keller Building. At the time, there were over 400 patients in Lonas Hall and only nine
staff members spent the night. It was a hell hole, he says. The only way the staff could manage so many patients was to sedate them. Crawford remembers when state legislators and reporters paid a surprise midnight visit to the hospital in 1971 to investigate allegations of overcrowding and unTo page A-3
Kroger boosts Second Harvest By Nancy Anderson To celebrate the first anniversary of the Cedar Bluff Kroger, the company presented $32,000 to Second Harvest Food Bank. The money was raised through Kroger’s “Bringing Hope to the Table” promotion, a 2-week campaign in which customers and associates contributed by buying selected items. The Kroger Company and Second Harvest have a long partnership, both locally and across the country. Second Harvest of East Tennessee feeds one million people monthly, with 64 percent of them living in Knox County. Since $1 provides three meals, $32,000 is going to come in handy.

We like to pay things forward even at work.” District manager Tim Coggins agreed, adding, “We see this more and more in the leadership Elaine Streno, executive director of Second Harvest Food Bank, accepts of our company.

No business like jail business By Betty Bean County Commissioner Amy Broyles walked a fine line while moderating a meeting with Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones and some 100 supporters of Knoxville’s immigrant community. The topic was the U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) 287 (g) program, which Jones could decide to adopt this month. Jones and Captain Terry Wilshire, who directs the intake center and Jimmy “J.J.” Jones
will supervise 287(g), said only corrections officers and an ICE supervisor will participate in the program. Both said it will benefit all concerned, because suspects will be allowed to post bond while awaiting deportation hearings in Louisiana or Memphis, rather than waiting out the time in jail. Jones also promised that his officers will not “profile” people on the street. Broyles, one of two Democrats on the commis-

sion, said she was there to be a neutral moderator and to allow an open exchange of ideas. She had many supporters in the audience, all of whom oppose 287 (g), described as “One of ICE’s top partnership initiatives, (which) allows a state and local law enforcement entity to enter into a partnership with ICE, under a joint Memorandum of Agreement (MOA). The state or local entity receives delegated authority for immigration enforce-
ment within their jurisdiction.” Members of the audience were unconvinced that deputizing jailers as ICE officers is a good idea.

Pond Gap art exhibit at UT It’s summer vacation for most Knox County students, but learning goes on at Pond Gap Elementary, where 65 students are enrolled in the University-Assisted Community School.
A dozen UT art education majors taught art classes at Pond Gap this summer, and the lessons culminated with an art show that will hang in the first floor of the Jane and David Bailey Education Complex at UT through July. Fourth and 5th-grade students from Pond Gap attended the opening of the exhibit and discussed their work in front of an audience. The experience affirmed the children, which is the whole point of the UACS, says director Bob Kronick, a professor in educational psychology and counseling in UT’s College of Education, Health and Human Sciences. It also gave them a method to express their emotions concretely. “When you put a piece of
art up there, that’s your guts,” Kronick says. The UT students used an interdisciplinary approach that combined art with other subjects, like watercolor with a history lesson on the Harlem Renaissance. He thinks the experience affirmed their decision to become teachers. “It was one of the most beautiful and rewarding days I’ve experienced in a long time,” a future teacher wrote after the exhibit.

Museum for Lakeshore Park sanitary conditions. When he was subpoenaed to testify at subsequent hearings, Crawford said he thought that patients were receiving far too many drugs. The scandal led to several improvements, including the appointment of Dr. John Marshall as superintendent at Eastern State. Crawford liked Marshall for his stance against overmedication of patients. When the East Tennes-
see Asylum for the Insane opened in 1873, it was modeled after the Hartford Retreat, which was founded in 1823 in Hartford, Conn., Crawford says. Hartford Retreat was modeled after York Retreat, which was founded in England in 1796. Both mental health centers focused on the humane and moral treatment of patients. Things changed when insanity was declared to
From page A-1 be incurable, he says. That meant that families of mental patients were given no hope that their loved ones would improve, and were encouraged to write obituaries for patients when they were admitted. Crawford left Eastern State in 1974, but he continues to speak up against the over-prescription of drugs for mental patients. “The definition of mental health (care) is integrity.”

Safety Center task force formed U.S. District Judge Tom Phillips has asked city and county officials to form a task force to study ways to relieve jail overcrowding, and the long-simmering plan to build a safety center to handle nonviolent mentally ill inmates could be the solution. One tough issue is whether city taxpayers should contribute financially to the project in addition to the county taxes they already pay. “The concept has some appeal to us as something to pursue, but it’s not fleshed out enough yet,” said Bill Lyons, policy director for

From page A-1 Mayor Madeline Rogero. “What happens if somebody is dropped off and is there a couple of days with addiction problems? A couple of days stay isn’t going to do much. Are we really helping anything by doing that? We just need to flesh out exactly what the model is and how it would work.” County Mayor Tim Burchett has reservations, as well: “We put a million bucks in the budget for it, if it’s feasible. I just want to make sure it’s not just a drunk tank. I want it for segregating the mentally ill population, to get an early diagnosis and not put them in jail.”
government Schumpert for interim trustee Former Knoxville mayor and city council member Daniel Brown and wife Cathy as well as city council member Finbarr Saunders and wife Ellen have returned from a week in Turkey where they were the guests of the Turkish Cultural Center.
They visited Istanbul and Izmir. Former council member Rob Frost (now council attorney) made a similar trip a few years ago. City taxpayers did not pay for the travel. ■ The remaining state-owned land at Lakeshore Park still has not been transferred to the city of Knoxville which must approve the transfer by council action. While a well-attended public hearing has been held on the park’s future, the land is not in city hands although it had been expected to be transferred two months ago. The good news is that it will happen and with former deputy mayor Larry Martin now interim commissioner of finance for Gov. Bill Haslam, there is a person there to birddog it to reality. The city cannot spend money on needed actions until the city owns it. Eventually the transfer will happen. It will be a great milestone in the development of city parks. ■ Council member Nick Della Volpe is excited that the Loves Creek greenway will formally open on Thursday, Aug. 1, with Mayor Rogero in attendance at 10 a.m. This is an effort of the city, county and neighborhood activists. This new greenway is a credit to East Knoxville and a nice addition to the slowly growing city greenway system. ■ With the resignation of John Duncan III as county trustee, attention switches to whom county commission may choose as the interim trustee and then who will seek the position in the August 2014 county election. Two members of the current Knox County Commission are mentioned. They are Ed Shouse and Larry Smith. Mike Hammond is a possibility as well. Most suspect they will not seek
the interim appointment but may seek the full 4-year term when it is up next year. However, both will have a vote among the 11 commissioners on who will fill the position in a few weeks. Commission is likely to choose a caretaker who will not seek the position. One name which would be well received and a good choice would be former trustee and county mayor Tommy Schumpert. He probably would not want it and would need to be drafted, but he has held the position before with no issues against him. In fact, he did such a good job with it that he was able to win the county mayor’s position over a longtime incumbent. Schumpert has been elected to countywide office three times and is highly regarded by Democrats and Republicans alike. As a Democrat, he falls in the Phil Bredesen-Wayne Ritchie wing of the party which makes him acceptable to many Republicans. Schumpert would not need training to do the job and his integrity and judgment are beyond question. ■ The Republican primary could be a freefor-all with not only Smith and Shouse running but also Craig Leuthold. Shouse is the only one of those three to have been nominated and elected countywide as well as being elected several times to city office. If Hammond enters then he could claim winning countywide as well. Others may line up for this open seat as well. Once three or four candidates get in, others may be attracted knowing a plurality will nominate and a clear majority is not required to win the primary. In fact, in such a race 30 percent could nominate an individual. ■ The task force named by the governor to consider construction of a new state museum will meet Wednesday, July 10, in Nashville. It is chaired by Tom Smith of Nashville. The current museum is located in the basement of the James K. Polk Building in Nashville. ■ Abbie Hudgens, who worked for the city of Knoxville while I was mayor and with former city law director Tom Varlan, has been named director of the workers compensation system by Gov. Haslam for a six-year term which will take her to the end of his second term as governor.

The swim What do you do when you find out your grandmother has cancer?
Jake Mabe MY TWO CENTS Well, I took a swim. When I heard the news, I was standing in the front yard of the cabin my greatuncle Ted Mabe built on the banks of Norris Lake in the 1950s. Ironic, given that I had spent happy afternoons of youth there with Lydia (pronounced LIE-dah) Beeler Mabe. What a remarkable woman is my paternal grandmother. Forced to leave her Sharps Chapel home when TVA created Norris Lake, she moved to Knox County with her family and attended Gibbs High School. Somewhere along the way she met
Lydia Mabe and married my grandfather Kenneth Mabe. When he died in 1988, Mamaw didn’t miss a beat. She learned to drive. She mowed the yard. She lived by herself for 25 years, watching television, working crossword puzzles, doing everything but wasting away. Nearly 89 years young, her memory is often better than mine. She is a night owl, so I’ll call her after 11 p.m. We talk family history, Halls gossip,
catch up on relatives and generally stay away from politics. My grandmother, you see, is an FDR Democrat. It’s OK. She saw the New Deal help others firsthand. And she doesn’t much care for Obama. It’s funny the things you remember. Singing gospel music for my grandparents and my late Aunt Mossie. Sunday dinners that would make – dare I say it? – Paula Deen green with envy. Homemade apple butter so good the memory makes my mouth moisten. The sounds of “Guiding Light” wafting into the bedroom in the early afternoon. Oh, where does the time go? All this, and heaven too, flashed through my mind as I took my swim. I had wanted to make that journey for more than 20 years, swimming from one bank to another and back. I did it. Don’t ask me why, but swimming in that blue-green water, for about 30 minutes as the sun set on a Sunday afternoon was like being dipped into magic waters. As I returned to the cabin and scratched mosquito bites, wiping the wet away,
I glanced over to the DVDs I had brought for my vacation. With heartbreaking irony, one of them was “The Shootist,” John Wayne’s final film, in which he plays an aging gunfighter dying of cancer. I didn’t have the heart to watch it. But the line I can quote from memory is spoken by Jimmy Stewart, when he tells the Duke he’s going to die. “Every few days I have to tell a man or a woman something I don’t want to. I’ve been practicing medicine for 29 years, and I still don’t know how to do it well.” And though I’m crowding in on middle age now, I still don’t know how to take it well. So, I cut my vacation short and came to work. Because that’s what I figure someone should do. When hard news hits, hit the plow. My grandmother may live another two months or another 20 years. I don’t know. But I do know this. I love Lydia Beeler Mabe with all of my heart. And I’m glad I took that swim. Visit Jake Mabe online at jakemabe. blogspot.com.
Yet more change for Knox County Schools How much change will $1.2 million buy? And how much more change can Knox County Schools stand?
Today Dr. Jim McIntyre will announce a $1.2 million grant from the Bill and
Melinda Gates Foundation (Monday, July 8, 4 p.m. at the AJ Building). He will ask the school board for a 30 percent match to hire a Boston-based firm, The Parthenon Group, to study resource allocation in the school system. “Resource allocation?” you ask. For those of us who don’t get the big words, McIntyre will simplify: We want to do more of what works, and stop what’s not working. The contract and supporting documents are
on the KCS website. But you’ve gotta drill. A line that jumped out: “To develop a process that continuously re-evaluates the highest and best use of resources.” Hmmm. Doesn’t sound very pedagogic. Can you make a case for athletics? For band, art or drama? If your technology is right, can you even make a case for a teacher with 25 kids all day in a classroom? I don’t know the answers, but I’m starting to figure out the questions. Come on
along. This week’s meetings: Monday, 4 p.m., announcement of grant; 5 p.m., board workshop; Wednesday, 5 p.m., school board meeting for grant approval. Meanwhile, principals like Ken Dunlap (Powell), Lynn Hill (Gibbs) and Kathy Duggan (Adrian Burnett) have been sent to other schools. We cannot measure and manage our way to success. Creativity is our strength. Microsoft was not built by bean counters –even Boston baked bean counters.
How about a mulligan on the ‘08 referendum There’s a blank space on Knox County’s website in the spot that used to be occupied by the county’s banker. Soon, Knox County Commission will begin the process of appointing a new trustee to serve in place of John J. Duncan III (“Triple Sticks” to his friends), the first-term elected trustee who last week entered a guilty plea to official misconduct and resigned while his anguished parents watched. The trustee is entrusted with collecting and depositing property tax revenues as well as state and federal funds allotted to the county. Integrity is high on the list of job requirements, and the young trustee made a great initial impression by hiring an in-house attorney to collect delinquent taxes instead of awarding the job as a fat political plum to a supporter in private practice.
Betty Bean Despite the humiliation visited on the proud Duncan family, JDIII’s adjudicated misdeeds involve relatively small sums of money and lying to investigators, for which he is unlikely to serve jail time and could become eligible for judicial diversion when he completes his probation (reports of poor job performance and absenteeism are not subject to criminal penalty). Despite the embarrassment, Duncan is better off than his predecessor Mike Lowe and three of Lowe’s employees who are awaiting trial on multiple counts of felony theft after a lengthy investigation uncovered evidence of phantom employees and improper purchas-
es. A grand jury investigated Lowe’s office for more than a year before handing down indictments. The judge who will preside over the case labeled it extremely complex and set trial dates for mid2014. In 2010, Knox County Law Director Bill Lockett resigned from office and pleaded guilty to bilking his former law firm out of more than $60,000 in client fees. He admitted failing to report this money to the Internal Revenue Service and asking former clients for loans which he had not repaid. The state Board of Professional Responsibility suspended his law license in October 2010. Meanwhile, the Knoxville law director, Charles Swanson, enjoys a high degree of respect and the city’s finance director, Jim York, has managed to collect and invest tax money while not only remaining scandal-
free, but receiving state Certificates of Achievement for Excellence in Financial Reporting every year since 1986 and the Distinguished Budget Presentation Award every year since 1989. York (known by city employees as “Dr. No”) runs his department like clockwork. Both Swanson and York are appointed by the city’s mayor. In 2008, at a time when the popularity of county Mayor Mike “Lobster to go” Ragsdale was lower than the Mariana Trench, voters turned down a proposition to allow the mayor to appoint the trustee, county clerk, register of deeds and law director. Opponents of the measure got a boost from the ballot summary, which asked voters if they wanted to “take away from the people the ability to vote” and was written by Bill Lockett. Do-over, anybody?

The day the Civil War came to Knoxville HISTORY AND MYSTERIES | Dr. Jim Tumblin I recall a day of great excitement when we learned that the enemy was coming sure enough. â€Ś There were but few soldiers about as almost all had been sent to Murfreesboro. Hastily, on the summit, where the Catholic church now stands, we made some slight breastworks of a few cotton bales, and brought a small gun, a four or six pounder, there. There were no houses on the summit then. The infantry, at â€œdouble quick,â€? hurried through the streets to form a line of battle on â€œreservoir hill,â€? out of town then. And thus we waited but a short while, when from the two hills could be seen a small body of the enemyâ€™s cavalry over the face of the hill where Fifth Avenue is now located, moving among the trees. There were no houses then, but some timber, which partially concealed the troops. Capt. McClung had charge of the gun on the summit. Soon we saw that the enemy had a gun, which they brought out into an open space and turned upon us. Capt. McClung replied with good effect. Only a few shots were fired, and the enemy hurried on at a gallop, leaving a dead horse or two. If any of their men were killed or wounded, they carried them away. One of their shots, perhaps the first, passed

(1910). The Confederates had occupied Knoxville since early in the war but Gen. Simon B. Buckner had weakened his defenses by sending troops to assist in Middle Tennessee. Gen. u m n Pleasant M. McClung (1824-1863).

He that spanned the Tennessend his 8,000-strong chose the young, Ken- see River. He was aided Ninth Corps to assist in tucky-born West Point by a diversionary detach-
ment 25 miles to the east of his approach route. The diversion worked and compelled Buckner to focus attention to the north of Knoxville as Sanders approached from the south. Sanders found the railroad bridge at Loudon too well guarded and rode to Lenoirâ€™s Station (later Lenoir City), where he quickly burned the depot, captured horses and mules, and destroyed ordnance supplies, the telegraph line and the tracks in the area. That same evening, June 19, he set out for Knoxville, tearing up track along the way. With Bucknerâ€™s troops concentrated north of Knoxville near Clinton, Col. R.C. Trigg, who was temporarily in command, called for citizen volunteers. About 200 â€œpersons, citizens and convalescent soldiersâ€? reported for duty. Half a dozen smoothbore 6-pounder guns were distributed on the hills just outside town â€“ Summit Hill, McGeeâ€™s Hill and Temperance Hill. He deployed the men and the guns on modest rapidly constructed parapets and behind cotton bales. At dawn on the 20th, Sanders approached from the north along the Tazewell Road, having left one regiment west of town to skirmish and distract the Confederates. Heavy skirmishing accompanied Sanders cautious approach and he stopped his advance when he noticed barricaded streets and stiff resistance. Among those Confederates at the barricade near the Church of the Immaculate Conception on Summit Hill was 38-year-old Capt. Pleasant Miller McClung, a member of the home guard. He was born to Charles Jr. and Malvina McClung on Aug. 19, 1824, in Knoxville, the great-
grandson of both William Blount, the governor of the Southwest Territory during Tennesseeâ€™s prestatehood years, and of James White, the founder of Knoxville. At an early age Pleasant was deprived of both of his parents and went to live in Blount Mansion with the family of his uncle, Col. Matt McClung. On that fateful June 20, 1863, Capt. Pleasant M. McClung, leading a company of citizen volunteers, saw his men duck for cover at the f lash of the Union guns and cried out, â€œDonâ€™t be afraid â€“ thereâ€™s no danger!â€? He was instantly hit. As he lay dying, he prayed for â€œforgiveness for those who killed me.â€? Pleasant McClung was survived by his wife, the former Mary A.C. McClung, whom he had married on April 15, 1846. They were parents to four daughters: Maria, Eliza, Mary and Sallie. He was interred in Old Gray Cemetery. After about an hour and a half, the Knoxville skirmish ended and Sanders departed for Strawberry Plains, where he burned the 1,600-foot-long bridge and, later, the 300-foot railroad bridge at Mossy Creek (Jefferson City). After an arduous return march north to Kentucky, Sanders reported to Gen. Burnside. He had traveled 250 miles in 10 days, destroyed 50 miles of railroad track and 3,000 feet of bridges, captured 15 artillery pieces and 2,500 small arms, destroyed a gun factory and captured and paroled 461 Confederates. His casualties were two killed, four wounded and 13 missing. He had made Civil War history having, according to Burnside, completed â€œone of the boldest raids of the war.â€?

And there you have it, a goal so obvious an 18-yearold from another land can grasp it and feel it and wonder how long it will take to get there from here. It wasn’t so long ago that Tennessee faithful were fretting and fussing when Phillip Fulmer teams won only nine or 10 a year and almost Marvin always went bowling. West Losses to the big boys and no championships for much too long led to serious aggravation or perhaps “They’re trying to get depression and that led to the program back to what it a decline in popcorn sales used to be … they’re trying and empty seats at Neyland to bring back the winning Stadium. Well, now we know Dr. tradition.”
Mike Hamilton’s cure was worse than the sickness. Lane Kiffin and Derek Dooley. Spare me. The young visitor was no doubt told that energetic and exciting Butch Jones has charted a remedial course in the correct direction. The uphill trip will be in segments. First, the Volunteers must regain respectability. You do recall Southeastern Conference coaches complaining that Tennessee is a marshmallow on the Alabama schedule, a tasty, toasted treat for each October. They said the game is better than an open date
because a victory over the Vols still sounds fairly good to the uninformed and is good for a minor boost in the polls and an easy step toward another national crown. Indeed, it is embarrassing to be anybody’s Akron or Troy, a breather between challenges, a date to relish instead of dread. Here is the problem nobody mentioned to C.J. Hampton: Assuming teams out front do not shift into neutral and try to coast home, catching them requires more, lots more, of the things they already have. Recruiting better than
Alabama, Georgia, Florida, LSU and Vanderbilt would be a start. Working harder might help. Playing smarter (11 at a time) could be a factor. On the drawing board, the current Volunteers are several notches short of championship contention. Here it is July and we don’t know who will be the quarterback. Logic says Justin Worley because he has had his feet wet. That there are other choices sends a different message. Oregon may not even care. Does Tennessee have one dependable receiver? It needs four. Is there a lockdown corner? Can the linebackers run fast enough? At this moment, there are more
tea, for example. Iced tea has sugar in it. And Southern cornbread never, never, ever has sugar in it. Never. Soul food is aptly named, and it has nothing to do with the color of one’s skin. Soul food is food with meaning. That meaning derives from many aspects of cooking. The story lives in legend and song of the woman who, every Easter, cut off the end of the ham before she put in the pot to bake. Her husband asked her why, and she replied, “Because that’s how my mother does it.” So the husband went to the source, and asked his mother-in-law, “Why do you
cut off the end of the Easter ham before you put it in the pot?” “Because my pot is too small for the ham,” she responded. Sounds reasonable to me. I like square cornbread. Even though I have a small, round cast iron skillet that is perfect for cornbread for two, I frequently make it in my square pan. There is a perfectly good reason for that habit. When I was a little girl, my grandfather saw to it that I got the corner piece of the cornbread. In fact, Papa saw to it that I got the first corner piece. M-mmm. I can still taste that cornbread. Bread of heaven, indeed! Nanny
never measured anything. She put some baking powder into the palm of her hand. The same with salt and soda. No sugar. She said cornbread with sugar in it was “Yankee cornbread.” Enough said. End of discussion. There are recipes in my Mother’s head that I can’t retrieve anymore, because she doesn’t remember. I have searched through her cookbooks, because I know that hidden somewhere in there is the recipe for Apple Pudding. (Nanny was the source of that one too!) I can’t find it. And let me tell you, my world is a sadder place
without Apple Pudding! When my husband and I lived and worked at “The Home,” a residential treatment center for teenagers in Gettysburg, we were told never, ever to withhold food from the boys. You can (or maybe you can’t) imagine how much food 13-year-old boys can put away. However, our executive director said frequently, “Food is love. That is something you learn at your mother’s breast. Don’t deny food to these boys who have known so little love!” So you see, even with manna in the wilderness, it is not the food, but the love behind it, that makes it soul food.

Back to what it used to be Meridian, Miss., defensive back C.J. Hampton visited Tennessee as a prospective recruit and went away with an interesting first impression.
Then the Lord said to Moses, “I am going to rain bread from heaven for you, and each day the people shall go out and gather enough for that day. (Exodus 16: 4 NRSV) Is not life more than food, and the body more than clothing? Look at the birds of the air; they neither sow nor reap nor gather into barns, and yet your heavenly Father feeds them.

questions than answers. I do believe these Volunteers have recaptured the spirit of winning football. The labor report is very encouraging. Jones’ vision for greatness is contagious. I am guessing the team will give what it has, such as it is. That will be a baby step toward improvement. It gets tougher when you go on the road and line up against men who are also wellcoached and believe they are significantly better. The only neutralizer is to knock hell out of ’em so they begin to wonder. After that, sometime in the future, it will be possible for Tennessee to take a couple of additional steps back toward the good, old days. (Marvin West invites reader reaction.

Heart and art Teenager uses talents to brighten life of child By Ashley Baker
With the needed funds in hand, Garrett was then ready to design. “The first thing we did was meet with Avery and ask her what she wanted,” said Garrett. The answer? A pink princess room. “What made it difficult was that we wanted to make everything ourselves, because we wanted to make her room as original as possible.” Soon a crew of 15 set out to create the pink princess room. Before the day ended, the walls were painted, and the carpet was replaced. Zebra pillows lined the new princess-style bed. Garrett’s crew also installed light fi xtures and added a desk and a closet organizing system. In less than 24 hours, the room was transformed.

When 7-year-old Avery and her family were asked by Morri Garrett to leave their house and not come back for 24 hours, they rejoiced. Garrett, a recent graduate of Christian Academy of Knoxville, had a plan. Garrett, 18, wanted to use her gifts and ability to benefit others. The Capstone Project that CAK requires of all students as part of their junior and senior classes provided Garrett the motivation, knowledge and support she needed to reach out to others. She chose to serve children with serious illnesses by raising the money needed to design and refurbish the bedrooms of two children. The CAK Capstone Project is designed to help students figure out a little bit about themselves while serving others. Under the supervision of teacher Jamie Petrick, students are required to log 40 hours of service and give a presentation about their experience. Garrett immediately began researching how she could make her 40 hours count. Garrett’s first researched This bear and the outfit herself.

With the help of Special Spaces, Garrett met Avery, who has leukemia. The goal was to provide a happy, exciting and nurturing place for healing and recovery.

Week five with the Shopper interns By Sara Barrett The Shopper News interns were sent through security checks at the City/County Building last week before a lighthearted conversation with Knox County Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones and his “number two” guy, Chief Deputy Eddie Biggs. Former Trustee John Duncan had walked through the lobby just minutes before to be booked. He pled guilty to official misconduct and resigned while we visited the courthouse. Afterward, the interns headed upstairs for
a meet and greet with Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero and a quick photo of Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett. Conversation during lunch at Chesapeake’s took a somber turn when Sonja DuBois told the group about her experiences as a Hidden Child during the Holocaust. After hiking up to Market Square to see the Women’s Suffrage Memorial, the interns met family law attorney Wanda Sobieski, one of the folks responsible for the monument. It was a good day.
Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero explains her vision for the South Knox waterfront to the Shopper interns.
Politics, history and law
Meeting the mayors Madeline to Madeline By Madeline Lonas
Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero had a sit-down chat with the interns after meeting each individually and shaking their hand. Topics ranged from her first campaign standing on the roadside asking for votes to what she does in her spare time. A special moment Rogero shared was when she walked the interns to the large window of her office and explained her vision for the now vacant Baptist Hospital and the rest of the South Knox waterfront.
Interns also learned about the new “urban wilderness” comprised of 1,000 acres of forest that include the South Loop and the Battlefield Loop. Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett posed for a quick picture with a few of the interns after holding a press conference regarding the purchase of property by Hillcrest Healthcare. “We were not able to ask him questions, but he did offer us some cold sodas and we accepted,” said intern Paul Brooks.
Many people only know Madeline Rogero as the first female mayor of Knoxville, but I got to sit down and have a Madeline-to-Madeline talk with this very wellknown local celebrity. Mayor Rogero isn’t a Knoxville native. Born in Jacksonville, Fla., in 1952, her parents, Gerald Rogero, a plumber, and Anita Ghioto, a former nun, moved to Kettering, Ohio. Rogero graduated from Archbishop Alter High School and then attended Temple University, Ohio State University, and graduated from Furman with a degree
in political science. In 1980, Rogero moved to Knoxville where she attended the UT Graduate School of Planning and received her master’s degree. After living in Knoxville for 10 years, she ran for the 2nd District County Commission seat against a 24year incumbent, Jesse Cawood. Knoxville wanted a fresh mind with fresh ideas, and Rogero won an upset. She introduced a new way of campaigning, which is now called human billboarding. Rogero and her volunteers (including her kids and her mom) stood on Broadway at Cecil Avenue each morning for a week, wearing campaign T-shirts and waving at motorists as they drove to work. “It grew each day and finally we even had a clown,” Rogero said. After winning and celebrating into the night, Rogero woke up the next morning and hustled her crew out to the intersection to hold ‘Thank You’ signs. She said this helped her win
Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero and Shopper News intern Madeline Lonas Photos by Laura Beeler re-election and people still talk about it. She served two terms and did not seek reelection. In 2003, she decided to run against our current governor, Bill Haslam, for the open seat as Knoxville mayor. Haslam won a closerthan-expected election, and Rogero decided not to run the next term cycle. After Haslam resigned in 2011, Rogero decided to give it another try. She defeated Democrat Mark Padgett with 58.6 percent of the vote. Rogero is in the 2nd
year of her first term and is planning to run for a second term. Although Rogero loves her job, she also likes relaxing and spending time with her family. Her hobbies include kayaking, dancing and playing softball with her husband, kids and grandchildren. She is also a beekeeper, and while there is only one beehive now, she usually collects the honey. Altogether, Rogero is a wonderful woman who is always ready with a smile.
Knox County Sheriff’s Office
Jacob Green introduces himself to Knoxville Chamber president Mike Edwards as Sandra Clark, Sarah Dixon and Madeline Lonas look on. As Edwards slowed his SUV near Market Square, Clark called to the interns, saying, “Hey, want to meet an important man?” Edwards smiled and joked, “Sandra can find you one somewhere around here!”
Shopper interns were surprised to find out how many inmates local jails can hold. “We can house anywhere from 1200-1250 inmates a day,” said Chief Deputy Eddie Biggs. The county’s three jails hold criminals from all 508 square miles of Knox County. In addition to patrol cars, there is also an aviation unit and a marine unit. Support services from the Sheriff’s office include Knox County Sheriff’s Office Life Services (previously the Chief Deputy Eddie Biggs DARE program for students), and Senior Citizens Awareness Network (SCAN), which ened criminals, but we also is used to visit and help track do another job,” said Biggs. Alzheimer’s patients who “We take care of our citizens.” may get lost. The Sheriff’s Office has “We take care of the hard- around 1,100 employees and
last year alone, more than 600,000 miles were driven on patrol. One intern asked if that was one car. “No,” said Biggs. It was the entire fleet. After wrapping up with Biggs, the interns (literally) ran into Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones in the hallway. The sheriff told the group he plans to run for office again in 2014. Jones said at the end of his next term as sheriff, he will have served in law enforcement for 38 years. “And that’s long enough for one person to serve in any job,” he said. He invited the interns to join him in Panama City, Fla., for a round of golf in 2019. Several made a note.

Lunch with Sonja DuBois By Mitchell Zavadil “It is my wish to tell students from middle school and up that the holocaust did happen, and it was awful,” said Sonja DuBois, a holocaust survivor who met our group for lunch at Chesapeake’s. DuBois was born in the Netherlands. Her country was invaded May 5, 1940, and her city was bombed for three straight days, leaving nothing standing. She told us how records had to be kept on all Jews, and at the end of 1940 it was rare for Jewish people to have jobs. In a policy known as The Final Solution, Hitler’s military was told to annihilate all Jewish
people. DuBois’ parents sent her to live with a close family friend, and in August of 1942 he found a husband and wife who had secretly offered to care for a Jewish child in need. This is when DuBois became a Hidden Child. No one knew DuBois’ real name or birthday. A local doctor broke the law by examining her and estimated her age to be about two years old. “We would celebrate my birthday every August, since that’s when my life started with them,” said DuBois. Most of DuBois’ family were killed in concentration camps. She said her prayer
Sonja DuBois, one of the Holocaust’s Hidden Children, stands with Shopper News intern Laura Beeler. Photo by Madeline Lonas was for the prisoners in the camps to be given mercy and a quick death. She explained how Jewish people were not allowed to own technology
such as a radio, but how the lack of communication may have helped her by not allowing the Nazis to track her whereabouts. Also, her “foster family”
made sure she got food at least once a day. Upon immigrating to the United States at the age of 12 with her foster parents, she had to sign her passport and it was in that moment that her parents told her Clara was her real name, and that she was not to ask questions about what happened. Fast forward to the 1970s when she received a copy of a newspaper from Rotterdam. The friend of her birth parents who had given her to her foster parents was interviewed with the hope that DuBois would see the article and let him know if she was a “successful save.” DuBois then traveled to Europe to meet this man who helped her birth parents save her life.
DuBois also reconnected with a cousin around 2000 who told her a few more things about her birth parents. She was finally able to obtain a still photo of them from a film her cousin had of a wedding taped in Holland before the war. “I’ll never know my mother’s favorite color, or her hobbies,” said DuBois, tearing up at the thought. Many of the Shopper interns (and staff in attendance) cried with her. DuBois’ words of advice to the group were to not be indifferent. “Be very aware,” she said. “One person can’t do it all, but we can all do something.” If you’d like Sonja DuBois to speak to your group, she can be reached by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org.

Women’s history with Wanda Sobieski Along with being known as an attorney of family law, Wanda Sobieski is extremely knowledgeable of women’s history and the suffrage movement. Sobieski told the Shopper interns about a time in America when women not
only didn’t have a say in their country’s future, but they didn’t even have a say in their own children’s futures. “Your husband could literally give your children away without your input,” said Sobieski. “And often, they did.”
The movement for women’s suffrage formally started with the Seneca Falls Convention in New York July 19-20, 1848. Leaders were Lucretia Mott, a Quaker, and Elizabeth Cady Stanton. Sobieski shared stories of women being imprisoned for fighting for the change. “A lot of women gave their entire effort and fortune so you can vote,” Sobieski told the females in the group. Use the opportunity wisely.” After rallying for 72 years, the U.S. Constitution was amended thanks to Tennessean Harry Burn, a member of the state’s general assembly. His mother, Febb, wrote him at the last minute and said he should “be a good boy” and vote for the amendment to pass. He took his mother’s advice, knowing at age 24 he would never do anything so important during the balance of his life. Sobieski fundraised for 11 years before reaching the goal of $375,000 for a statue that currently stands in Market Square in memory of the women who helped change history. Another $60,000 was raised for its upkeep and maintenance. A second statue is being planned to honor Febb and Harry Burn. It will be erected in Krutch Park. Sobieski said to use the work of those who fought for women’s suffrage as an Family law attorney Wanda Sobieski stands next to a rendering example. “If something’s of the Women’s Suffrage Memorial. She led fundraising in worth doing, you have to The first rendering of a statue honoring Febb Burn and her son, Harry Burn excess of $400,000 to have the statue made and installed. keep after it.”

American Water Heaters Monthly energy costs are an important consideration for homeowners selecting new appliances, and as always, Knoxville’s Modern Supply has taken the lead in looking out for the best interests of its customers. In a home energy audit, you might not be surprised to note that heating and air conditioning units lead the list for energy consumption. The water heater comes in a close second, accounting for 14 to 25 percent of the total energy consumed in your home. The experts at Modern Supply tell us that the energy efﬁciency of a water heater is measured in the percentage of energy that actually goes into heating the water, as compared to the energy wasted in the heating process. The most common water heater, called a conventional unit, is typically a glass-lined tank-type product in sizes ranging from 30 to 120 gallons and is powered by electricity, natural gas or propane. A conventional tank-type water heater can operate at anywhere from 75 to 80 percent efﬁciency, depending on the energy source. In other words, 75 to 80 cents of your heating dollar goes into heating the water, and as much as 25 cents is lost. With energy costs on the rise, manufacturers like Modern Sup-
for cost-saving and energy efficient results
ply’s partner, American Water Heater Company, are introducing technologies like hybrid or solar water heaters with increased energy efﬁciencies and better performance than ever before. Another alternative, the American Polaris® product line, represents the ultimate in high efﬁciency gas water heating. It is ENERGY STAR® certiﬁed, operating well above the average gas water heater at 95+ percent

thermal efﬁciency, which means that almost all of the money spent is going toward heating the water. Choosing an energy efﬁcient water heater for your home and regularly maintaining it can help reduce your energy costs. And right now, homeowners can save serious money on top of that with federal and local incentives. The Polaris, like many American products, qualiﬁes for a federal tax credit of up to $300.

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers
Here come the ’pads, ’pods and ’pros Principals, teachers get technology training
By Betsy Pickle When Tim Berry took over as principal of South-Doyle High School two years ago, he knew the school didn’t have the best reputation in the county. He’d heard the test scores weren’t great and that apathy and discipline were issues. But once the students walked through the doors and he started getting to know them, Berry felt that the bad publicity was undeserved. “A lot of the things that I’d heard about the school just weren’t true,” he says. “I had a lot of kids who just wanted somebody to believe in them.” Berry and his leadership team made that a priority, and then they began working on getting the students to believe in themselves. Earning a spot as one of 11 Knox County schools to participate in the 1:1 Technology Challenge was a major part of that. “Just to see the kids and the pride they had was pretty cool,” says Berry. “They didn’t know what we won; they just knew we had won. I thought that was a unique perspective. “I sat back and really learned a little bit about our school that day, that they felt like they’d been pushed down for so long, and to win something that maybe some other prominent schools hadn’t gotten” was a thrill. Each one of South-Doyle’s 1,200-plus students will receive a MacBook Pro this fall as part of the 1:1 Technology Challenge. Berry is confident that the kids will adapt easily because today’s technology is second nature to them. When the students were polled about how they used technology, “I learned that more kids listen to me when I tweet than they do when I read the morning announcements,” Berry says. Taking a break from his own training with the new laptop at the Sarah Simpson Professional Development Center, Berry makes it clear that he’s a fan of his students and faculty. He talks about the theme – “Reveal Your Greatness” or #ryg – that the school adopted last year

to combat the second-banana mindset that had arisen over the past several years. Berry’s own high-school experience was one of winning, albeit more in athletics than in academics. The Loudon County native was an All-State basketball player; his sister and father were both All Americans. Berry is the first to admit he was a long shot to become an educator, much less work in administration. “I wasn’t a bad student, and I wasn’t a great student,” says Berry, who spent 21 years as a teacher and administrator in Loudon County before diving into Knox County’s school system two years ago. “I just did what I needed to do to get my grades.” After a year at Hiwassee Col-
lege, where he played basketball, he went to UT and studied business, but he “hated the classes.” His advisor, the late Bill Butefish, asked him what he did like – “science, chemistry and biology.” “We just started talking about things that you could do with that,” says Berry. “He said, ‘I think you’d make a great teacher.’ So I got into the program. I did some field experiences, and I fell in love with it.” He was a little more hesitant about going after his advanced degrees in education and becoming an administrator. “I liked the idea of making decisions beyond the four walls of the classroom and felt like I could make a difference where I was at the time,” he says. “But I had to be convinced that you could make a difference because I felt like the closer you were to kids, the more positive impact you could have.”
Knox County Council PTA
After losing out on the school superintendent’s position in Loudon County, Berry decided it was time to look farther afield. “I had been keeping track of Dr. Jim McIntyre and the progress he was making in Knox County, and I was looking to work for someone who was a visionary and had great leadership,” he says. Berry talked to some Knox County administrators he knew, and he began interviewing for an opening at one high school, but he ended up with the South-Doyle assignment. “When I decided to leave Loudon County, I prayed that God would put me where I was needed,” says Berry. “And from day one, I knew that he wanted me at South-Doyle. “Every single day that I’m there, I’m reminded why I’m at SouthDoyle.”

business News from First Tennessee
Vol for Life By Pam Fansler First Tennessee Bank is proud to support the Vol for Life program offered by the Un iver sit y of Tennessee Athletics Department. Quite Fansler a few First Tennessee staff members volunteer their services for training sessions in budgeting and financial literacy, skills students need not only during their time on campus but for the rest of their lives. While these financial skills are important, the program covers much more. Itâ€™s a complete character building program. The Vol for Life program is a four-year comprehensive player support program intended to help student athletes make good decisions and understand the consequences that come with poor decisions. The four-year VFL curriculum focuses on the often-overlooked personal growth of the student athlete. Itâ€™s an acknowledgment that sports is not life; itâ€™s a part of life. The program includes life skills training for players such as dealing with credit cards and checking accounts and handling themselves in formal social situations. It also includes career development topics
such as networking, interviewing skills and job placement. Participants are encouraged in their spiritual growth and advised about community service opportunities. Topics range from the dangers of promiscuity and alcohol and drug abuse to anger management. The program also includes training in mental conditioning, personal branding and navigating the social media landscape, issues crucial in the 21st century. The ultimate goal of the VFL program is to produce not only great players and teams, but men and women who try to do the right thing on and off the field â€“ while in college and throughout a lifetime. Itâ€™s easy to focus on sensational stories about a few athletes behaving badly. This program focuses on the positives and helps create success stories. The college years can be a tumultuous time for many, but few college students have the unique pressures and opportunities as student athletes who often enter this highly visible arena without the skills needed to succeed in it and afterwards. The VFL program gives those students a much-needed helping hand. The Vol for Life program provides essential training in character building and life skills that will have an impact long after the strains of â€œRocky Topâ€? fade away. Pam Fansler is president of First Tennessee Bankâ€™s East Tennessee region.

News from Office of Register of Deeds
Summer surge continues By Sherry Witt The first five months of 2013 have shown a strengthening real estate market in Knox Count y, and June has continued the Witt trend. For the month ending June 28, there were 1,039 property transfers recorded in Knox County. That was 100 more sales than were processed in May, and over 200 more than those from last June. The $196 million worth of land sold during the month was slightly below Mayâ€™s figure of $212 million; however, the May totals were somewhat inflated by the sale of the Riverview Tower downtown. Last June saw $170.6 million worth of property transferred in the county.
The mortgage lending data were strong as well, although off from Mayâ€™s total by about $12 million. Some $324 million was loaned against real estate in Knox County during June, compared to about $336 million in May. Both figures well outpaced last June when $278 million was loaned in mortgages and refinances. While there were no particularly notable commercial transactions in June, the largest sale of the month was for a 54-acre tract of land off Shirecliff Lane in west Knox County. The property sold for just over $2.5 million. On the mortgage lending side, the largest loan recorded was for $11 million by Pinnacle Bank to Pleasant Baine Properties for financing of three separate developments on Washington Pike, Asheville Highway and McBride Lane.

NEWS FROM PAIDEIA ACADEMY OF KNOXVILLE
Paideia Academy at a glance By Headmaster James A. Cowart Finding the right educational experience for your child is one of the most important decisions that parents face. Our mission at Paideia Academy is to assist Christian parents James Cowart in bringing up their children in the “paideia” (training and admonition) of the Lord by utilizing a classical Christian education. What is classical Christian education? According to the Association of Classical & Christian Schools (ACCS), classical Christian education is simply “a historic, biblical education.” Paideia Academy is one of the association’s 280 members and part of a quickly growing nationwide movement in education. These schools are marked by their use of timeproven content and methods, age-appropriate learning, an integrated Christian worldview, academically challenging coursework, and a nurturing community. Time-proven content and methods Paideia Academy uses classical curriculum and methods to equip students with the ability to think and learn for themselves. Students are guided through three stages of learning – the grammar stage, focused on imparting core knowledge; the logic stage, focused on the analysis and understanding of previously learned facts and gures; and the rhetoric stage, focused on the eloquence and wisdom of expression.
Integrated Christian worldview Education shapes children’s hearts, not just their minds. Paideia Academy is a place where Christian students can receive challenging, comprehensive academics built on a foundation of biblical truth. All subjects at Paideia Academy are taught as part of an integrated whole, with Christ and the Scriptures at the center. We don’t view the Bible as another subject; rather, it is the lens through which all subjects are viewed. Biblical standards are applied in all areas of school life as students are taught to love the Lord and serve one another.
Age-appropriate learning Each learning stage corresponds with the students’ natural development. Young children enjoy memorizing facts, particularly through the use of chants, songs, and rhythmic verse. Early adolescents are argumentative and increasingly able to draw conclusions. Maturing students transitioning into adulthood become more conscious of how others perceive them, desiring to communicate more effectively and to apply the knowledge and understanding they have gained. We seek to recognize this natural progression and employ methods that teach with the grain.
Academically challenging coursework In grades Pre-K through sixth, the focus is on core knowledge. In addition to reading, writing, math, science, history, and language arts, students also study
Latin and participate in ne arts classes. Seventh through twelfth grade students embark on a “great books” curriculum covering history, theology, and literature in a single comprehensive study. Their classes also include college-preparatory math and science courses, logic, rhetoric, apologetics, Latin, and biblical Greek. Paideia Academy sets high expectations for student learning. Average students quickly rise to the standard and enjoy the sense of achievement that comes from mastering a difcult goal. Nurturing Community A child’s school community plays an essential role in forming his or her core values. Paideia Academy students have the blessing of growing up in a nurturing and challenging environment where they will establish lifelong relationships and friends. Parents and teachers share a commitment

to equip children to love learning and grow in godliness. Small class sizes, dedicated teachers, and engaged families ensure quality instruction, personal attention, and Christian mentoring.

planning and support resources to parents. Homeschool umbrella students have access to Paideia’s classes, eld trips, athletics, and activities.

Parkwest Imaging offers patients ACR-recognized ‘Gold Standard’ services Imaging Department features experienced staff with advanced clinical registries and top-of-the-line diagnostic equipment If you are like most people, at some point in your life you may experience symptoms of an undetermined medical problem or have a health issue at which your doctor wants a closer look. Depending on your individual needs, your doctor may order an X-ray, an MRI, a CT scan, an ultrasound, mammography, nuclear medicine or interventional radiology. In this situation, it’s important to know the signiﬁcance of The American College of Radiology (ACR) accreditation and the role it should play in helping you choose an imaging facility. The ACR is the nation’s leading imaging accrediting body and largest organization of radiologists; therefore, the ACR accreditation is recognized as the gold standard for excellent radiology services. Facilities that have earned the ACR gold seal have gone through a rigorous review process to ensure that they meet ACR’s high standards of care, including qualiﬁed, highly-trained

Now a ‘picture of health’
Local woman credits Parkwest imaging scan for revealing important diagnosis One might call Kathy Evans of Oak Ridge a “frequent ﬂyer” in Parkwest’s Imaging Services department. Since 2011, she’s been seen three times by technologists who specialize in nuclear medicine and ultrasounds to make sure her kidneys and ureter stay healthy and function properly. Today she Kathy Evans is grateful to have made a full recovery and is a “picture of health,” thanks to the care and treatment she received at Parkwest. However, the anxiety and fear she felt at the beginning of her journey remain in her mind. In June 2011, Evans became very ill. Doctors concluded that her symptoms were caused by an ovarian tumor pushing against her ureter, the muscular tubes that connect the kidneys to the bladder. Doctors immediately scheduled surgery at Parkwest to remove the large, but benign, tumor. Parkwest urologist Dr. Walter Chiles, implanted a stent to reopen the ureter, which had collapsed because of pressure applied by the tumor. Evans was sent home to recover, thinking that the worst was over. Within two months, she once again began experiencing symptoms. Her doctor determined that, although the tumor and the ﬁrst stent were removed successfully, her kidneys were not functioning at full capacity. In fact, for a while, one of Evans’ kidneys functioned at only 20 percent. “Finding out such an important part of your body isn’t working is terrifying,” conﬁded Evans. Imaging Services at Parkwest performed further tests in order for the doctor to determine the problem and best course of action. Evans underwent a dual screening, consisting of an ultrasound and a MAG3 nuclear medicine scan, to allow doctors to view her kidneys. The ultrasound uses ultra-high-frequency sound waves, which reﬂect off the kidneys to produce images. The MAG-3 scan is a diagnostic procedure that allows a radiologist to examine the kidneys and how they func-
tion in greater detail. Before undergoing the scan, a radioisotope solution was administered to Evans intravenously. The kidneys excrete the compound and its progress is tracked by a gamma camera. During the test, technologists administered a diuretic medication called Lasix in order to study how effectively Evans’s kidneys were ﬂushing. “I was so anxious laying there when testing began,” said Evans. “But the technologists were so good about keeping me informed about what was going on. If I asked to see the screen, they would turn it around so I could view it. If I had questions, they would answer them. I felt that they were going out of their way to take care of my needs and make me as comfortable as possible because they understood how nervous I was. It really made a difference.” The scan concluded that Evans’ ureter had collapsed once again after the removal of her first stent. She needed a second surgery to insert yet another stent into her ureter in order to improve kidney function. The surgery was performed at Parkwest in September 2011. “As always, I received excellent post-operative care and felt the nurses were friendly and very attentive. They frequently checked on me after I was transported to my room. That is one of the best things about Parkwest. You are never neglected, no matter how busy the staff is,” said Evans. It wasn’t long before the second stent was removed and Evans was back in Imaging Services to receive another ultrasound and MAG-3 scan. The screenings revealed that both kidneys and ureter were healthy. Just a few weeks ago, Evans returned to Imaging Services to undergo one ﬁnal ultrasound and MAG-3 screening. She was relieved when the results showed no abnormalities. “I’m happy I chose Parkwest for my imaging and surgery needs,” Evans said. “These tests and procedures ease your mind when you are conﬁdent in your doctors’ abilities and you’re surrounded by a kind and caring staff from diagnosis to discharge.”
personnel and advanced equipment. Every aspect of the accreditation is overseen by board-certiﬁed, expert radiologists and medical physicists in advanced diagnostic imaging. “Parkwest Imaging Department is accredited by the ACR. All modalities (types of imaging equipment) and processes in the department meet the stringent quality measures of the ACR,” said Jason Raiford-Davis, MPH, CHES, ACR, and administrative manager of Radiology at Parkwest. “The main reason we sought ACR accreditation is quality. The ACR gives peer-reviewed, education-focused validation of the top radiology practices. Most importantly, it instills patient conﬁdence that they are receiving the best possible images and care.”
Raiford-Davis is also quick to point out that all Parkwest advanced modality radiologic technologists (Interventional Radiology, CT, Nuclear Medicine, Ultrasound, MRI and Mammography) have advanced registries for their specialty area. To obtain this advanced registry, the employees must demonstrate their skill in the specialty, complete a speciﬁc list of clinical procedures, prove their competency through a registry exam and maintain continuing education requirements. “We’re committed to providing the highest quality images and care to every patient,” said RaifordDavis. “And we hope that our employees’ advanced registries and our ACR accreditation reafﬁrm that commitment.”
The acronyms of radiology: A primer for Parkwest Imaging Services There are several types of diagnostic scans, and each is used for different purposes. Here’s an overview of how different services are commonly used. ■ CT (Computed Tomography) A CT (or CAT) scan combines the power of X-ray technology and computerized imagery to take layered pictures of hard and soft tissues, including organs and bones. CTs typically take just minutes to complete, and in emergency cases, they can reveal internal injuries and bleeding quickly enough to help save lives. CT imaging is sometimes compared to looking into a loaf of bread by cutting the loaf into thin slices. When the image slices are reassembled by computer software, the result is a very detailed multidimensional view of the body’s interior. Approximately 2,300 scans are performed monthly at Parkwest by technologists who are ARRT registered with advanced registry. Parkwest has three scanners: two GE 16-slice Lightspeed scanners and a GE 64-slice VCT (Volume Computed Tomography). ■ Diagnostic Imaging (X-Ray) X-rays are a form of electromagnetic radiation. In the hospital setting, X-rays are emitted by a machine as individual particles that pass through the body and are interpreted by a computer to display the images. Solid structures such as bones appear white, areas that contain air (such as lungs) appear black and soft tissues appear as shades of gray. All technologists are ARRT registered, and radiation protection and minimization of patient exposure is always considered for patient safety. ■ MRI (Magnetic Resonance Imaging) MRI uses powerful magnets and radio waves to non-invasively produce detailed images of the body. MRI is capable of showing very ﬁne detail in tissue and organs. Unlike conventional radiography and CT, no radiation is used. Parkwest MRI has also added a new software tool called Inhance, which provides the ability to image renal arteries without the use of contrast. All technologists are ARRT registered with advanced registry. MRI at Parkwest is an American College of Radiology Accredited (ACR) facility and
features a GE 3-tesla magnet and a GE 1.5 tesla magnet. ■ Nuclear Medicine Nuclear Medicine is an exam that requires an IV line through which a radioactive isotope is injected into the body. The patient lies on a table under a camera which specializes in the imaging of the organs metabolic functions. Unlike other areas of radiology nuclear medicine assesses how an organ functions instead of the anatomy of the organ. Parkwest Nuclear Medicine has also added a new test for Parkinson’s disease called DaTscan. Parkwest is the only hospital in the Knoxville area to offer this exam. Four cameras are available for patient exams at Parkwest. All technologists are NMTCB certiﬁed. ■ Special Procedures (Interventional Radiology) Parkwest Imaging Services offers a full spectrum of diagnostic and interventional procedures, including, but not limited to: angioplasty/stent placement; central venous access (Permacath, Portacath); uterine ﬁbroid embolization; TIPS (shunting of liver vessels); and vertebroplasty. All technologists are ARRT registered with advanced registries and RNs are ACLS certiﬁed. ■ Ultrasound Ultrasound uses ultra high-frequency sound waves which are reflected off of the body organs, vessels and other structures to produce images. Unlike other areas of radiology, no radiation is used in Ultrasound imaging. A waterbased gel is placed on the patient’s skin over the area of interest to help conduct the sound waves. The technologist then scans with a probe called the transducer, which emits sound waves and listens for the “echo” as the sound is either absorbed or bounces off anatomic structures. Parkwest has ultrasound Scan Assist technology, which increases efficiency, ensures quality and standardizes protocols. All Parkwest sonographers are RDMS (Registered Diagnotic Medical Sonographers.)

B-2 • JULY 8, 2013 • BEARDEN Shopper news
Little Kennedi of Norris enjoys a thrilling wet ride!
Old-fashioned Fourth of July fun This year’s Norris Day celebration in the town of Norris was a big success, and full of the kind of fun you’d expect to find in a simpler, older America.
William Pointer, a Korean War Army vet, shakes hands with Kelly Hughes, both of Norris. Hughes says, “Every one of us got lucky to be born right here in America.”
There were rubber duck races (winners got a watermelon), a Slip ‘n’ Slide, a quilt show, face painting, ice cream and bake sales. Many of the attractions benefitted local charities, including the Lions Club. Kids whizzed by on scooters and bikes, and the grownups visited and enjoyed a relaxing holiday time.

Sometimes a Wildcat and a Blue Devil can drive toward the same goal surgery by Art to remove his prostate gland. Art used the da Vinci Surgical System at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center. The ďŹ rst of its kind in Knoxville, the da Vinci is a state-of-the-art robotic surgery system that allows removal of the prostate with only a few small cuts. This in turn means less blood, less post-operative pain and a shorter hospital stay. â€œDr. Art explained everything to me,â€? said Eubanks. â€œAnd as usual, he was very detailed. Along with my Christian faith, prayer and Dr. Artâ€™s conďŹ dence and our informative discussions, I was to the point of not being too worried about the actual surgery. I was more worried about telling my family of my diagnosis and needing surgery.â€? The robotic surgery went smoothly, and Eubanks was home within two days. â€œMy care at Fort Sanders was very good; I had no problems,â€? he said. â€œThe nurses were all very friendly. You could ask them questions and they were very attentive. â€œI had almost no pain. I did not even take any pain medications,â€? said Eubanks. Within three months, Eubanks was back to normal, doing sit-ups, lifting weights and playing tennis. When the weather warmed, he was back on his motorcycle as well. â€œIt has now been almost nine months since the surgery and I do everything now that I did before, maybe more because I seem to want to make up for the three months lost during recovery,â€? said Eubanks. â€œI attribute my great outcome to my age, my health before the surgery and especially Dr. Art and the da Vinci robot at Fort Sanders. My only issue with Dr. Art is that he is a Kentucky basketball fan,â€? Eubanks said with a laugh. â€œI recommend all men begin having prostate cancer screening. I did, and it may have saved my life.â€?
Richard Eubanks of Knoxville, 50, a diehard Duke basketball fan, was diagnosed with prostate cancer in the spring of 2012, after routine screening by urologist Dr. Kevin Art of Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center. At the time, however, Eubanks didnâ€™t realize that Art was a devoted University of Kentucky fan. â€œWhen I saw he had a UK pin on his lapel, I said, â€˜Iâ€™m not sure this is going to work,â€™ â€? said Eubanks with a laugh. â€œEver since then, we always talk basketball.â€? After the diagnosis of cancer â€“ prostate cancer is the most common type of cancer in men â€“ the two men set aside any basketball differences to ďŹ nd a slam-dunk treatment. Since Eubanks was only 49 years old, on the young side for prostate cancer, Art ďŹ rst recommended surgery to remove the gland. However, since it was at such an early stage and slow growing, Art pointed out that there was no need to rush. â€œMy ďŹ rst instinct was â€˜Cancer, get it out, I donâ€™t want to take any chances,â€™ â€? said Eubanks. â€œBut Dr. Art said there was no rush; it was likely to be slow growing and early. He explained all of my options, but he put no pressure on me to have the surgery. He said the second option would be radiation treatment, and he recommended I get other opinions.â€? Eubanks did receive a second opinion from a radiologist, who also recommended surgery. â€œThat made me feel reassured,â€? said Eubanks. But still, Eubanks decided to wait for a few months before the surgery, to enjoy a summer motorcycle trip to Utah with his father and another trip with his wife to Hawaii. All the while, Eubanks had extra blood tests to check the cancer, which remained unchanged over the summer. Finally in November 2012, Eubanks had Richard Eubanks with his wife, Joana
Robotic surgery at Fort Sanders Originally developed by the military for use in tele-surgery, robotic surgery has become the gold standard for prostate removal surgery today. Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center acquired the first robotic da Vinci Surgical System in the Knoxville area in 2004. It has become very popular among physicians with 90 to 95 percent of all prostate surgeries, and many Dr. Kevin Art other abdominal procedures as well, being done by the robot. â€œThe robotic system allows us to perform a less invasive procedure, compared to traditional open surgery,â€? explained Dr. Kevin Art, a board certified urologist at Fort Sanders. â€œThe robot has replaced open surgery in most cases, although in some patients the robot may not be possible due to prior surgeries.â€? Using a computer console, the
