‘Educator at sea’ Noelle Turner says she “lucked into” teaching marine ecology at Bearden High School. And she “lucked into” two summer stints working on the E/V Nautilus, a ship of exploration that took her to the Mediterranean Sea in 2012 and the Gulf of Mexico in 2013. But at some point, luck had to be superseded by Turner’s personal qualities – her passion for educating and her drive to learn. And her students are the lucky beneficiaries of her adventures.

New technology for the classroom Summer’s officially over for the teachers at Stanford Eisenberg Knoxville Jewish Day School as they embark on learning about the school’s newest device – a Promethean ActivTable. Students took the touchscreen table for a test run before summer break and approved of the device, says Head of School Miriam Esther Wilhelm. The beauty of the table design is that it allows for several students to work together on learning games.

Morgan Brown, sophomore at Bearden High, takes center stage as the Tennessee Children’s Dance Ensemble performs for the Knox County Commission.

By Wendy Smith After the bad news that the cost of insuring Knox County’s new trustee will triple, Knox County commissioners were treated to some good news, and a moving performance, from the Tennessee Children’s Dance Ensemble. The company, made up of dancers ages 10 to 17, performed at last week’s chair’s lunch. TCDE is an official Tennessee Ambassador of Goodwill. This summer, as part of its mission of “children helping children,” 22 dancers performed for residents of Newtown, Conn., where 26 people were killed in a school shooting on Dec. 14. “As soon as it happened, we knew we needed to go there,” says company member Lexi Rebmann,

a rising freshman at Bearden High School. Reaching out to a community that was overwhelmed by grief, and the media, wasn’t easy. But through the nonprofit Healing Newtown, which provides healing through the arts, the Knoxville dance company was able to offer a performance six months after the tragedy. The concert was held at Newtown High School, the site of Barack Obama’s address to the country following the shooting. After the concert, the dancers were asked to perform at the Lighthouse Festival, a fundraiser for Ben’s Lighthouse, a nonprofit named for shooting victim Ben Wheeler. They also performed at two church services. Rebmann says the dancers were surprised by the openness

of the community, given all it has endured. “Everyone was just so nice, so welcoming. We didn’t expect that.” Since Newtown has been flooded with donations from across the country, the community provided teddy bears for the children of Union Beach, N.J., which was devastated by Hurricane Sandy on Oct. 29. The dancers delivered the bears to students at Memorial School, a kindergarten through 8th grade school that was badly damaged by the storm. Tags attached to the bears read: “With love, from Newtown, via TCDE.” Memorial students, who had been farmed out to four different schools, returned to the rebuilt school just days before the dancers arrived. The youngsters were de-

lighted by the bears – even the boys. “You might think boys don’t like teddy bears, but you’d be wrong,” says TCDE director Irena Linn. The dancers performed twice in Union Beach, and taught eight classes for Memorial students. TCDE artistic director Amy Wilson presented a slide show of the trip at the chair’s lunch. The company receives a grant from Knox County each year, and the performance, as well as speeches from four company members, demonstrated the level of professionalism exhibited by the dancers in remote locations. Wilson says that the dancers like helping others and teaching even more than performing. “More than anything else, they really enjoy interacting with other children.”

Beauty, glamour headed to The Gallery By Anne Hart The Gallery shopping center on Kingston Pike is getting a big makeover, but it doesn’t have anything to do with new construction. Instead, it has to do with two major new tenants, leaders in the beauty and fashion business, who will be opening locations in the center in the fall. And it also has to do with friendship. The well-known players are Belinda and Frank Gambuzza and Diana Warner. The Gambuzzas are bringing to town the BeStyled hair lounge so wildly popular in major East Coast cities. Warner, a Knoxville native who owns a fashionable women’s boutique in New York City, is opening a Knoxville version of her store. The two businesses will be

opening next door to each other at The Gallery and at the same time by agreement. The story really starts back in 2011, when the Gambuzzas, who knew Warner was headlining Knoxville Fashion Week just a couple of days later, stopped by her New York shop to introduce themselves. The next day Warner was in Knoxville having her hair colored by Belinda and cut by Frank. Since then, the three have become fast friends, and so when they were all looking for a new venture, discussion led to becoming business neighbors. The Gallery looked like a good place to settle. Frank Gambuzza calls it “the perfect location.” BeStyled won’t require appointments, and will offer an Frank Gambuzza with Tracie Wofford, a partner with the Gambuzzas in a To page A-3 new concept hair lounge in The Gallery shopping center.

Technology brings teachers back to the classroom Summer’s officially over for the teachers at Stanford Eisenberg Knoxville Jewish Day School as they embark on learning about the school’s newest device – a Promethean ActivTable.

Wendy Smith

Students took the touchscreen table for a test run before summer break and approved of the device, says Head of School Miriam Es-

ther Wilhelm. The beauty of the table design is that it allows for several students to work together on learning games. But they all have to agree with any changes made during play. The collaborative nature of the device is what sold the KJDS staff on it, Wilhelm says. Because there are just 30 students and handful of teachers, the school is like a mini technology lab. In addition to the ActivTable, the school is equipped with 10 iPads, 10 laptop computers and smart boards in each classroom. The teachers had several ideas for a schoolwide technology goal for the

summer, but they ultimately decided to follow the example of Google and implement an 80/20 approach: 20 percent of each teacher’s time will be devoted to a technology project of her choosing. “The focus is on the experience,” Wilhelm says. “Because we are offering the freedom to ‘work on whatever you want,’ we are also offering the freedom to fail. Without failure, there can be no innovation or true experimentation.” The Shopper-News will follow up on this mini technology lab as teachers try out their projects.

Beauty, glamour affordable wash with blow out styling along with a complimentary Mimosa, a movie and a little bag of candy for each client.

Visiting Nashville Nashville was the scene of some interesting discussions on July 19. In the early afternoon, the state Supreme Court assembled to hear the third challenge to the current retention selection method of appellate judges in Tennessee. Two lawsuits have been brought by John J. Hooker Jr., 83, Nashville attorney and former Democratic nominee for governor and U.S. senator. Since the entire Supreme Court recused themselves, Gov. Bill Haslam appointed five special justices including two from Knoxville, Russ Dedrick, former U.S. attorney; and Morris Kizer, former city law director. It was a diverse group, with two women and one AfricanAmerican. While one hour had been scheduled for the hearing, it actually lasted almost two hours with only a 10 minute break. In addition to the judges, present in the Supreme Court chambers was former Gov. Winfield Dunn who had defeated Hooker for governor in 1970. Also present was Herbert Slatery, counsel to the governor (also a Knoxville attorney), John Seigenthaler, former editor of the Tennessean and Joe Sweat, former director of the Tennessee Municipal League. The courtroom was full. The major issue seems to revolve around whether the retention style vote of â&#x20AC;&#x153;yesâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;noâ&#x20AC;? on retaining a judge equals an election where a candidate is chosen as outlined in the state Constitution. Special Justice Kizer asked the most questions, as well as the most probing ones, with most directed to the attorneys for the state. Hooker as the plaintiff received very few questions. While it is dangerous to attach much significance to questions asked by the judges, it did appear that the outcome may be a split decision whichever way it goes. However, it is hard to imagine the special court will overturn the current judicial selection method, although Gov. Dunn publicly endorsed the Hooker position and told the media he regretted having signed this retention method into law. Nevertheless, the two justices asking questions seemed to be struggling with the issue. It is interesting to recall that this current system was enacted by Democrats who were concerned that the rise of the Republican Party would lead to a Republican Supreme Court which, in turn, would elect a Republican attorney general.

To date, no woman, no African-American and no Republican has ever held the state attorney generalâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office in Tennessee. Later in the day, Seigenthaler hosted a panel discussion on the new book â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coupâ&#x20AC;? by Keel Hunt which details the behind-the-scenes story of Lamar Alexander being sworn into office as governor three days earlier than planned to usher Ray Blanton out of office to prevent more pardons and commutations of state prisoners. This event, which occurred 34 years ago in 1979, is unparalleled in American history. While a few governors have been removed by impeachment, this is the only time a governor was removed by the incoming governor taking the oath of office early with the support of the two speakers, who were both Democrats. Former U.S. Attorney Hal Hardin was on the panel as well. It was his urging that caused Alexander, with the backing of then-Speaker Ned McWherter and Lt. Gov. John Wilder, along with then-Attorney General Bill Leech and Chief Justice Joe Henry, to support and participate in the decision for Alexander to advance the oath-taking by three days. Hardin told the audience that he had credible information from the FBI that Blanton was likely to pardon or commute the sentences of more than 30 inmates on top of the 52 pardons and commutations he had already issued that week. In order to halt it, Blanton had to be removed from office. The quickest way to do that was for Alexander to quietly but quickly take the oath early without Blanton knowing it, which is exactly what happened. This book, published by Vanderbilt University Press, is well-written and hard to put down once you open the first pages. Attending the panel discussion were Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, former Alexander aides Lewis Lavine and Molly Pratt, retired federal Judge Bob Echols, Donna Leech (widow of Bill Leech), Honey Alexander, and Nashville Democratic attorneys George Barrett and Charles Bone. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Coupâ&#x20AC;? should be available soon in Knoxville, but is available now online.

Who needs Tom Ingram? Last week, Knox County Commission selected a trustee. Craig Leuthold got the job, but the winners were Ed Shouse and Stacey Campfield. By taking his name out of consideration to be appointed trustee, Shouse can make the case that he is no courthouse insider when he runs for trustee next year. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to say that he not only listened to constituents who thought it unseemly for a sitting commissioner to ask his colleagues for votes, but also to those who wanted a â&#x20AC;&#x153;caretakerâ&#x20AC;? who wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use the appointment as a stepping stone to frontrunner status in next yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s election. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t nominate me,â&#x20AC;? Shouse said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I will take my name out of contention.â&#x20AC;? He called the action â&#x20AC;&#x153;regrettable, because I think I would do a good job,â&#x20AC;? and all but announced his candidacy with a reminder that next

Craig Leuthold is a former county commissioner and former trusteeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office employee who was working for the property assessorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office when he was appointed trustee. No matter what kind of job he does, he will wear the label of courthouse insider. Which brings us to Campfield. Richard Briggs, who is running hard for Campfieldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s state Senate seat, nominated Leuthold. Briggs comes into the senate race with many built-

Drivers Ed: Declining elective By Sandra Clark Half of Knox Countyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s high schools offer drivers education, while half do not. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solely at the discretion of the pr incipa l, Severance

said school board member Kim Sepesi Severance. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one of those things where the communities and families will have to step up,â&#x20AC;? she said in response to our query. Austin-East, Central, Farragut, Fulton, Gibbs, Halls, Hardin Valley Academy and the L&N STEM Academy offer

in advantages: Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a pillar of his community. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s happily married. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a respected cardiac surgeon. Heâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a veteran and, indeed, a war hero. He has given his time to work in disaster areas and among the medically underserved. He has been a responsive, responsible member of County Commission who has served with far more distinction than controversy. And he is demonstrating considerable fundraising prowess in his senate run. Campfield, on the other hand, is a fame-seeking, serial embarrassment to mainstream Republicans. When Briggs announced early this year, he seemed a cinch to take Campfield out. But so far, Briggs has stumbled over an embarrassing series of piddly gaffes that have given Campfield enough â&#x20AC;&#x153;freeâ&#x20AC;? media to cancel out his lack of cash: a silly robo-call glitch by

the program as a student elective, according to supervisor Steve Huettel. Bearden, Carter, Karns, Kelley Academy, Powell, South-Doyle and West do not. Actually, this could change before school starts as principals decide whether to reinstate or drop the program. Knox County will have (at last count) six new high

an independent pollster associated with Briggs, taking money from former Mayor Mike â&#x20AC;&#x153;lobster-to-goâ&#x20AC;? Ragsdale, engaging the services of uber-insider Tom Ingram. All of this handed the controversial incumbent enough ammunition to stand his ground against an opponent who should be wiping the floor with him. And the hits just keep on coming. Craig Leutholdâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s father, Frank Leuthold, a longtime and highly-respected former county commissioner, is also Briggsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; campaign treasurer. Perhaps out of loyalty to Frank, Briggs did himself no favors last week when he nominated and voted for Craig for trustee. This is not to say that the younger Leuthold is a bad person, or even a bad choice. But it just looks bad. And Campfield doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t need Tom Ingram to tell him exactly what to do with it.

school principals: Central, Gibbs, Carter, Karns, Kelley Academy and Powell. Severance said the school board approves electives, but the principals decide which are offered. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Drivers education is a good resource to the students, and Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve got one who turns 16 on Aug. 7. But communities know what they need.â&#x20AC;?

We have robins NATURE NOTES | Dr. Bob Collier


e have a lot of robins. They are all over the place. Three or four of them meet me in the driveway every time I pull in. Six or eight are foraging for worms out in the side yard most any time of day, and a couple of them are still singing to me even in this hot weather. I guess we shouldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t be surprised, if you do the numbers. Theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had three months now, since they arrived in the spring, to pair up, nest, and raise a couple of broods, usually of four youngsters each. So for every couple of robins you started with in April, there should be around 10 of them now, in that one single family. That can add up to a lot of robins. The American robin is likely our most familiar songbird, known by nearly everyone who ever looked out their windows. They are instantly recognizable by their red breast, upright stance and their typical stop-look-nab foraging technique. Their loud â&#x20AC;&#x153;cheerily, cheer-up, cheer-up, cheerily, cheerilyâ&#x20AC;? song begins at dawn or before and can last on into the evening hours. They continue to sing for us now, and thankfully, will go into the fall. Their name â&#x20AC;&#x153;robin,â&#x20AC;? originally being a reference to a familiar family member, was given to them by the earliest settlers because the robinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reddish-brown breast reminded them of the European robins, a similar but smaller and unrelated bird of their homelands. Robins are also one of our most widely-distributed songbirds, nesting from Alaska, across Canada, and all across the United States and into Mexico. They do

migrate. The whole continent full of them shifts southward in the fall, becoming more concentrated in the southern half of the United States, so we have a lot of northern robins that winter here. Although they have fared much better than most species of birds since humans moved in and took over, robins havenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always had smooth sailing. Back before they became protected by the Migratory Bird Conservation Act of 1929, they were trapped and kept as caged songbirds, like canaries. And, much worse than that, untold thousands of them were shot by southern market hunters. Our most famous observer and painter of birds, John James Audubon, painted a nest of robins as his Plate # 131. In the corresponding commentary about robins in his â&#x20AC;&#x153;Ornithological Biography, Volume 2,â&#x20AC;? he says â&#x20AC;&#x153;from the middle of November until March, in the southern states, every gunner brings them home by the bagful, and the markets are supplied with them at a very cheap rate.â&#x20AC;? As to how the wintering robins rated as table fare, Audubon comments that â&#x20AC;&#x153;they are then fat and juicy, and afford excellent eating.â&#x20AC;? The robins took another big hit when DDT came out. Back when DDT was being sprayed abundantly on trees, crops, ditches and children at play, the large chemical companies were assuring everyone that their products were harmless to everything except their target insects. But then strange things began to happen. In 1954, the city of East Lansing, Mich., home of Michigan State University, began a program

American robin

of spraying DDT on their stately elm trees, under attack by the Dutch elm disease. A year later, when spring returned to the Michigan State campus, people noticed robins everywhere, on the ground, having seizures, dying, dead. And the biologists from Michigan State found out why. They were killed by neurotoxins. The robins had, as usual, been eating their favorite food, earthworms. But the earthworms, after having fed over the previous fall and winter on fallen DDT-laced elm leaves, had become toxic. Only 10 or 12 worms could kill a robin. The city of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., put out a call for anyone who found a dead robin they suspected of having been poisoned to bring it in for study. They had to cut off their request when, after a week, their freezers overflowed with 1,000 dead robins. Whole towns were calling the experts for help, asking why there werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t any songbirds anymore. And so, in her monumental 1962 book, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Silent Spring,â&#x20AC;? Rachel Carson wrote that â&#x20AC;&#x153;the story of

the robin might serve as the tragic symbol of the fate of all the birdsâ&#x20AC;? in our chemical-soaked world. Her book, plus the growing public alarm at all the dead and missing birds, turned the tide, at least to the extent that, in 1972, DDT was finally banned in the United States and Canada. But back to our robins: they are alive and well and as familiar a part of our daily lives as kinfolks. They serve as a standard for bird study: other birds are â&#x20AC;&#x153;about the size of a robinâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;a little smaller than a robin.â&#x20AC;? Birds sing songs â&#x20AC;&#x153;like a robin with a sore throatâ&#x20AC;? (scarlet tanager) or â&#x20AC;&#x153;like a robin with voice lessonsâ&#x20AC;? (rose-breasted grosbeak). You know them at a glance by their robin-red breast; they lay robinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s-egg-blue eggs. And they are nothing if not industrious. Over the two-week span that the young birds are in the nest, the two parent robins will make more than 300 feeding visits to the nest a day, ultimately feeding more than three pounds of worms and caterpillars to those hungry mouths. One studious bi-

ologist has noted that on its last day in the nest, a single young robin, by then the same size as its parents, will eat 14 feet of earthworms! Earthworms? They love them. And just so that you know, some serious study has gone into resolving the debate as to how the robins find the worms. It turns out that they find them by sight, peering closely with that cocked eye, rather than hearing them, smelling them, feeling vibrations, or whatever. Then, in late summer, the robins do an unusual thing: over a couple of months, they switch their diet from almost all meat (worms and caterpillars) to almost all fruit. They eat fruits and berries most of the winter. They go for tree fruits, like apples, serviceberries, hackberries and mulberries, as well as grapes, blackberries and pokeberries. But a few of those is a small price to pay for having our faithful, familiar, friendly kinfolks, the robins, living with us day by day. Cheer up!

deeds. Feel the passion. Pass catchers have long thought of Tennessee as Wide Receiver U. The hitters think linebackers are the body and soul of Big Orange tradition. Coach Jones, surprisingly aware of the past, could drop a few clues and cause Dillon Bates to wonder if or where he will fit among the all-time greats. The linebackers video has Al Wilson on the front cover. That is appropriate. He was a big-time winner, highly motivated, exciting leader, vicious tackler. Wilson, asked what it takes to be a linebacker, said, “You got to be a little bit crazy.” Frank Emanuel, all-SEC,

all-American, Hall of Fame, talks about the pride in having played at Tennessee, the thrill in running through the T, the importance of 1965 in the Doug Dickey restoration. Emanuel said UCLA in Memphis and the dogfights with Alabama were his favorite games. Paul Naumoff contributes a vivid description of one of most memorable hits in Tennessee football history, the head-on collision with Larry Csonka, fourth quarter near the 1966 Gator Bowl goal. Naumoff won that one. He said Csonka more than got even in the NFL. Kiner, twice SEC defensive player of the year, provides perspective on the

however, which wander off into imagination and supposition. It was a huge undertaking, and quite well done, produced by Roma Downey (of “Touched by an Angel” fame). Some of it was hard to watch; there are harsh stories in the Bible, but some of it was delightful. I particularly liked the actor who played Jesus. It is one of the few portrayals of our Lord which made him seem equally human and divine. This Jesus smiled and laughed! There was one particular scene, however, that caught my fancy. The dialogue was not biblical, but it struck a chord with me. It reverber-

ates in my head: a challenge, a call, a command. Simon bar-Jonah (later to be known as Peter) was pushing off from the shoreline in his fishing boat. Jesus wades into the water, catches up to the little boat, and climbs in. Simon is nonplussed when Jesus says, “Come, Simon, and follow me.” “What are we going to do?” Peter asks, obviously thinking in the immediate short-term. Jesus looks at him intently, with a thoughtful expression in his eyes, and smiles. “Change the world,” he answers levelly. Simon looks at him – confused, interested, intrigued, bewildered. And that is exactly what

they did. All the world-changing work did not get done in the three years the little band of disciples spent together. But what Jesus and his followers started continues today. I saw it every day I worked at the Volunteer Ministry Center in Knoxville. I saw it in action just the other night at Vacation Bible School. I hear it (and feel its continuing call upon my life) every Sunday in worship. I see it in the kindness of strangers, in the laughter of children, in the enthusiasm of youth, in the calm, patient eyes of the aged. Sometimes we think there is no way we can change the

world; there is no way we can make a difference. But I assure you that someone is always watching you, and you are making a difference – for good or ill. Jesus the Christ calls each of us to do or to be something. Most likely something beyond what we think we can manage. Or what we know how to be or do. Or what we have the impetus to do, or the energy to do, or the expertise to do. Jesus calls us anyhow. He calls us to do something in our own little arena, or in some place we haven’t even heard of yet, half a world away. He calls us to do something. Something like changing the world!

Is Bates a replica of Kiner? When Dillon Bates committed to play 2014 Tennessee football, I thought of Steve Kiner. Rangy linebacker from Florida. Hitter with a big heart. Sideline to sideline speed. Exceptional coverage skills. Bright future. Kiner was about all you could ask of a Volunteer linebacker, tough on Alabama, all-Southeastern Conference, all-American, College Football Hall of Fame. Bates is one of the best prep prospects in the country. He may grow up to be awesome. That he chose the Vols was no surprise. His dad, Bill, was a Tennessee safety. His mom, Denise, was a

Marvin West

Tennessee cheerleader. He has relatives in Farragut. That is roots. Recruiting Dillon was a personal project of Butch Jones. That young Bates earned the attention of the boss should tell you all you need to know. The Vol Network was a factor. The linebackers video in the Leaders series is a powerful recruiting tool. Hear the words. See the

The call Once while Jesus was standing beside the lake of Gennesaret…he saw two boats there at the shore of the lake; the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets. He got into one of the boats, the one belonging to Simon, and asked him to put out a little way from the shore. Then he sat down and taught the crowds from the boat.

He talked about the blitz package used against Vinny Testaverde. He said it was an incredible experience to play for Tennessee. It is entirely possible that Coach Jones told Dillon Bates about some of this linebacker stuff. It’s a great sales pitch.

Tennessee-Alabama rivalry. “Beating Bear Bryant was like winning the national championship.” Raynoch Thompson shares insight regarding the coaching of defensive coordinator John Chavis. Keith DeLong, Kelly Ziegler and Nick Reviez are great at explaining what it takes and what it means to excel in the SEC. Ziegler’s eyes danced as he recalled the 1985 Sugar Vols, Ken Donahue’s game plan and the overwhelming upset of Miami. Ziegler grew up in Miami. There is no interview with the reclusive Jack Reynolds but there are hits you can hear. There is great video of the late Tom Fisher in action against Auburn (1964), 28 tackles in one afternoon. Greg Jones makes a splash with 25 hits against

Budik finds inspiration in Israel By Wendy Smith Israel is enriched by Jews who emigrate from other countries because they bring different talents and perspectives, says Ilya Budik. In the same way, Alzheimer’s research benefits from many countries working together to find a cure. Budik is CEO of NeuroQuest, an Israeli biomedical company that’s developing a low-cost test to diagnose Alzheimer’s Disease (AD) and Lou Gehrig’s disease (ALS) in early stages. He grew up in Knoxville, where he attended West High School and was active in the Jewish community. “A lot of people in this community nurtured and guided me along the way,” he said during a Knoxville Jewish Alliance program held last week at the Arnstein Jewish Community Center. Budik studied finance and biochemistry at Miami University of Ohio, and after graduation, attended Rabinowitz Institute for Jewish Heritage in Jerusalem. When he finished the two-year program, he decided to look for career opportunities in Israel.

The job hunt paid off with a government-funded research project headed by Michal Schwartz. Her research showed that ALS was rolled back in mice by boosting specific parts of the immune system, but the study was too small to win further funding. The work of the startup NeuroQuest is based upon Schwartz’s research. The prevalence of AD makes finding a low-cost test for the disease a priority.

“Alzheimer’s is a tough disease,” Budik said. “It’s a slower decline, but that doesn’t mean it’s any less painful.” While there are currently no early indicators of AD, beta-amyloid plaque is always present in AD patients. Presence of the plaque can be determined with a PET scan, but the cost of the scan, $3,000 to $6,000, is prohibitive, he said. NeuroQuest is working to develop a blood test that would indicate the presence of the plaque. Budik took the opportunity to visit family and friends in Knoxville while in the U.S. to attend the Alzheimer’s Association International Conference in Boston. His parents are Boris and Bella Budik. Ilya Budik considers himself lucky to be able to devote his mornings to religious studies. Work, of all kinds, should inspire you, he said. He also feels fortunate to be surrounded by people who are smarter than he is. Part of his recipe for success is daily acknowledgement that he doesn’t know enough. Israel is a growing place,

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers

An ‘Educator at Sea’

By Betsy Pickle

Noelle Turner says she “lucked into” teaching marine ecology at Bearden High School. And she “lucked into” two summer stints working on the E/V Nautilus, a ship of exploration that took her to the Mediterranean Sea in 2012 and the Gulf of Mexico in 2013. But at some point, luck had to be superseded by Turner’s personal qualities – her passion for educating and her drive to learn. And her students are the lucky beneficiaries of her adventures. “It’s a fantastic experience, and it’s so usable in the classroom,” says Turner. From June 10 through July 4, Turner was an Educator at Sea on the Nautilus Exploration Program’s first two legs in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. The expedition’s purpose is mapping hydrocarbons and studying the impacts of the BP oil spill on deep-water corals. Last year she learned about mud volcanoes in the Mediterranean. The 20 educators selected for this year’s program serve as communicators, sharing information from project scientists and engineers with student audiences of varying ages at select aquariums and planetariums via the Internet. “We can’t see them, but we hear them through a headset,” says Turner. “They can see and hear us. They ask us questions, and we answer them.” The educators spend eight hours a day, four hours at a time, “on watch” in “the Van,” a small building on the deck of the ship where panels and screens display what’s going on deep below the ocean’s surface with the two ROVs – remotely operated vehicles – Argus and Hercules. During missions, the educators answer questions posted through “Your job is to try to communicate the science from the operators without interfering with delicate operations,” says Turner, who as a returnee was selected to be a lead educator. Another duty is to examine photos and video taken during dives and select ones to post on the website. “I can show my kids these clips and these scientists,” she says. The Exploration Vessel Nautilus is the ship of Robert Ballard, oceanography professor at the University of Rhode Island, discoverer of the wreckage of the RMS Titanic and founder of the Center for Ocean Exploration and Archaeological Oceanography. Turner found out about the Nautilus’ educator program when she attended

Noelle Turner works in the “Van” during a shift on the E/V Nautilus. Photos submitted the National Marine Educators Association’s 2010 annual meeting, which was in Gatlinburg. She had taught biology and other science classes at Bearden since 1999 and had taught at Halls High School for a year before that, but she was relatively new to teaching marine ecology and wanted to get more familiar with it. “On a whim, I applied for this Educator at Sea thing,” she says. “It’s a good thing I didn’t know the kind of people who were applying for it because there were some really great people that applied. Bechtel’s one of the sponsors and is down the road in Oak Ridge, and I think they wanted people from this area as well. I was lucky enough to interview and get to go.” Turner was born in Knoxville and lived here until the start of 9th grade, when her family moved to Blount County. After graduating from William Blount High School, she went to the University of Tennessee, where she earned her bachelor of science in biology and her master’s in education. She had been tempted to become a veterinarian but decided to be a biology teacher instead. “I love to learn,” she says. “And

Noelle Turner stands in front of the ROV Argus, a vehicle that can document discoveries deep below the ocean’s surface. I wanted to do something – this sounds dorky – where I felt like maybe I could help somebody. “I’m kind of an introvert, but if there’s something that is important to me, it’s education: teaching people how to learn, helping people, caring for people. I feel like education improves life, whether it improves your understanding or whether it helps you with job skills. I think both job skills and understanding other people are important.” Turner teaches biology to 9th and 10th graders and marine ecology primarily to 11th and 12th graders. “I’ve had classes where half of the kids wanted to be marine biologists, and then I’ve had classes where none of them were interested in marine biology.” One of the great things about the

Knox County Council PTA

Educator at Sea program, Turner says, is that she works with people who do all kinds of jobs that she can talk about with her students, opening their eyes to all kinds of possibilities. “Understanding our world, even if it’s not our particular interest, makes a difference. I might have expected to be doing biology in the Smoky Mountains with a scientist looking at salamanders, but I never in my whole life would have expected that I would live on a ship with a crew and be going to the training sessions, sitting there talking to Dr. Ballard, who was one of the people that helped discover the Titanic. “Not in a million years would I ever even have dreamed that that was a possibility for me. You just never know what wonderful thing is going to happen to you.”

Charlie Smith: architect to the world By Anne Hart The stunning, hightech, fast-motion film Charlie Smith uses to market his company to clients worldwide held West Knox Rotarians at rapt attention when the architect who helped design the 1982 World’s Fair showed it at last week’s meeting. The film illustrates the step-by-step construction of the huge structures that made up the 2012 London Olympics, for which Smith was a lead architect. Smith was introduced at the meeting by his longtime friend and former partner, Bob Holsaple, who told his fellow Rotarians that as a result of the work he did on

the international exposition here, Smith developed “ World’s Fa i r - i t i s ,” and soon quit the firm of McCarty Holsaple McCarty to work worldwide for other huge Smith venues, including the London Olympics. Smith explained that in the field of architecture, “some are generalists and some are specialists.” He chose to specialize in fairs – both state fairs and world’s fairs – and in large venues of other types, including

Olympics and rodeos. He said an architect “can design a home and make a couple happy or design a fair and make a million people happy.” Smith and his firm, Populous, are now working on plans and proposals for the Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro in 2016, the 2024 Winter Olympics in Brisbane, Australia, and the 2026 Winter Olympics to be held in Denver. Smith said at the London Olympics, most activities took place in the center of the centuries-old city, including an equestrian facility built on the lawn in front of Buckingham Palace. “Buildings in that kind

Harris receives Service above Self award Knox County school board member Doug Harris received the first Service above Self award from West Knox Rotary. Harris was honored for his volunteer work locally and in other countries. He is president and co-founder of World Water Project, which has developed a new water filter ( that has been placed in more than 6,000 homes in Uganda and is providing clean water for more than 40,000 people. Taking part in the presentation ceremony were, from left, John Heins, Harris, Gary Ricciardi and Tommy Wolf. Photo by Charles Garvey of setting must relate to the surroundings, and must also enhance any historic buildings.” Smith said many of the structures were not perma-

nent and were removed after the Olympics ended or were designed specifically to be repurposed for a different use. He said Populous has completed $20 billion in

construction in 34 countries across the world, including 105 arenas, 250 Fairs, 109 exposition halls and 10 Olympics.

Making a Silk Purse … “We’re going to make a Silk Purse out of a sow’s ear,” states the enthusiastic email shop owners Judy and Mort Gardner sent out last week to friends, family, clients and just about everyone they could think of. Their excitement about their new home is contagious as they announce a move for the Silk Purse shop from cramped space in Western Plaza to the cute and spacious yellow cottage on Kingston Pike directly across from the Food City in Bearden. The property has been vacant for a while, and was purchased just a few months ago by developer Tony Cappiello. Judy Gardner says, “Tony is the person who is breathing so much life into this neighborhood. He is a visionary and his goal is to make Bearden the best shopping area in Knoxville. We intend to be a vital part of that goal.” The Gardners say that in their new home they will once again have space to

offer workshops, fashion shows, teas, seminars, classes “and fabulous fashion finds at affordable prices, as always.” Judy and Mort have been in New York shopping for new fall inventory to fill the cottage. Look for a grand opening sometime in the next month or so. ■

Malone Dental expands

Dr. Stephen Malone of Malone Dental, 264 S. Peters Rd., is expanding his practice and also extending office hours. New to the staff is Dr. Denver Eslinger, a California native who graduated with a degree in Spanish from Pacific Union College

and a DDS degree from Loma Linda University. Dr. Eslinger and his wife, Tara, met in dental school and were married shortly after graduation in 2010. They moved to Knoxville to be closer to Tara’s parents, who live in Asheville, N.C. While in school, Dr. Eslinger and his wife served on mission trips overseas, and in the U.S. to provide dental work to people who had no access to a dentist or who lived in under-served areas.

Moms: You Don’t Have to Live with Pregnancy Hemorrhoids Kimberley Thomas calls it the “bad surprise of childbirth” that her mother never told her about. “I didn’t know anything about hemorrhoids until I had my first baby eighteen years ago,” explains Thomas. “I pushed wrong during labor, and immediately afterwards, the nurse noticed a cluster of hemorrhoids. It was a surprise –a BAD surprise.” Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the anal canal, caused by too much pressure on the veins in the pelvic and rectal area. About half of Americans suffer from hemorrhoids by age 50. They are especially common during pregnancy and childbirth. Thomas treated the hemorrhoids with over-the-counter medications, but they never completely went away.

“They didn’t always hurt, but they were always there,” she remembers. “I thought it was just something I had to live with because I’d had a baby.” After witnessing a friend’s painful experience with hemorrhoid surgery, Thomas was reluctant to consider surgery. “My friend was out of work for six weeks. I watched her suffer,” says Thomas. It was Thomas’ OB/GYN who finally convinced her to seek treatment. She referred her to surgeon Dr. C. Stone Mitchell at the Premier Hemorrhoid Treatment Center. “She said, “I’m Dr. Mitchell

“I thought [hemorrhoids were] just something I had to live with because I’d had a baby.” –Kimberley Thomas, Hemorrhoid Patient going to send you to someone who will take care of you,” remembers Thomas. “And Dr. Mitchell and his staff were wonderful.” During several office visits over

the next six months, Dr. Mitchell used Infrared Coagulation to shrink Thomas’ hemorrhoids. “It’s a quick, non-surgical treatment that uses a small probe with short bursts of warm light,” explains Dr. Mitchell. “This method doesn’t require any cutting or stitches and is used to treat the majority of patients we see here at the Premier Hemorrhoid Treatment Center.” Although initially nervous about the procedure, Thomas was surprised about how fast and painless the treatment was. “It doesn’t hurt at all, it was just a little warm,” she says. “It took a week or so to heal afterwards, but I feel so much better now!” And Thomas says Dr. Mitchell and his staff put her at ease.

“They were super nice and very discreet. The nurse held my hand and we told jokes during treatments.” Since her treatment, Thomas has sent several girlfriends to Dr. Mitchell. “I tell other moms, you shouldn’t be embarrassed or scared to have your hemorrhoids treated. There IS help, you don’t have to suffer!” Hemorrhoids affect nearly 10 million American men and women. Don’t suffer in silence. Call the Premier Hemorrhoid Treatment Center at (865) 588-9952 or visit for information about your treatment options.

Provision staff member Rae Ann Guinn before and after her weight loss. Photo submitted

By Shana Raley-Lusk Rae Ann Guinn had been a stay-at-home mom for 16 years when she found a cyst on her chest in October 2009. “As a full-time mom, I found that it was hard to make time for myself. I had really let myself get out of shape because of always putting others first and myself last,” she said. After finding the cyst, Guinn was forced to confront her weight. “I ended up going to the breast center which is adjacent to Provision Health and Wellness. This was the first time I had stepped on a scale in years,” she said. At an all-time high of 231 pounds, she knew that she had to make a major lifestyle change in order to avoid serious health problems.

“I started doing research online and walking every day,” she said. She started at just half a mile each day and increased the times and distances as her endurance increased. “I always referred to this as ‘kicking it up,’” Guinn said. By the beginning of 2010, she had already lost 40 pounds. “My next step was to try Zumba,” she said. “I tried it and just loved it.” After two years as a participant, she went on to become a certified instructor of Zumba. “Then I started running. Now, I have done full marathons, half marathons, and more.” Two years into her weight loss journey, Guinn applied for the front desk position

at Provision Health and Wellness. This eventually led to her teaching Zumba classes there. “I fell in love with the members and other instructors here at Provision,” Guinn said. “They truly allowed me to spread my wings and blossom. It is my mission now to help others who are in the situation I was in.” “Losing the weight has allowed me to do things in life that I never thought I would be able to do,” she said. For instance, Guinn recently took up paddle boarding and hopes to try yoga on the stand-up paddle board this summer. Her other goals include participating in a triathlon in the future. “For my daughters to see their mom meet these goals

has given them a sense of adventure and the knowledge that you can do anything that you set your mind to,” Guinn said. She has been able to keep the weight off for almost five years now. “I use the resources at Provision to help maintain this weight loss,” she said. “Being around other fitminded people makes a huge difference.” Rae Ann says that the classes offered at Provision are a great place to start for those looking to make a lifestyle change. “All of our classes can be modified for beginners, so there is no reason to be intimidated,” she said. “The great care that the staff gives is the best part.” Call Provision for more information at 865-232-1414.

At 92, 50th TAVR patient is grateful for more time He listened to the family’s Grebe radio as Herbert Hoover pulled off a landslide victory over Al Smith in the 1928 presidential election. He learned to drive on his father’s 1924 Model T Ford and was stationed at Elmendorf Field in Anchorage, Alaska, when word came that Japan had bombed Pearl Harbor. At 92, Robert Channell has seen and done plenty. But the highlight of the retired construction electrician’s life, he says, came May 13, 2013, when he awakened in the intensive care unit at Parkwest Medical Center with “perfect breath,” thanks to an artificial valve implanted in his heart during a revolutionary procedure known as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (TAVR). “TAVR was the highlight of my life because it was a matter of life or death,” Channell said without hesitation a month later as he sat with Myrtle, his wife of 67 years, in their apartment at Morning Pointe assisted living in Lenoir City. Channell was the 50th patient to undergo a TAVR procedure at Parkwest which recently marked the one-year anniversary of its first TAVR surgery with a cake in honor of all TAVR patients, including the first, Roy Ogle of Knoxville. Ogle’s surgery on June 6, 2012, came five days after his 88th birthday. The procedure, most often reserved for elderly patients like Ogle and Channell, involves replacing the diseased aortic valve with a collapsible prosthetic fashioned from the valve of a cow. The valve, designed by California-based Edwards Lifesciences, can collapse to the diameter of a pencil. It is guided to the heart through a long flexible tube (or catheter) inserted into either the femoral artery through a small incision in the groin or via a small incision between the ribs. Although performed in Europe for a decade, TAVR is still so rare in the United States (less than 10 percent of aortic valve replacements) it’s available at only about 150 hospitals nationwide. Parkwest was the first Knoxville hospital to offer it. For patients deemed inoperable or too risky for traditional open-heart surgery, TAVR is their only option.

felt the rush of the cold arctic wind when the doors to the bomb bay opened. And he had seen the “puffs of smoke” from the enemy’s anti-aircraft guns aimed at them as they bombed Kiska and Attu in the Aleutian Islands chain. “I was young,” he said. “I thought it was an adventure. It was like watching Fourth of July fireworks.” But TAVR surgery? An older, wiser Channell knew that was serious business. “I knew that TAVR was new and that there were risks with any surgery regardless of how good the doctors are and that anything could happen,” Channell said. “I think at the time they said the mortality rate was 7 percent. And I thought, ‘I’ll take that 93 percent.’ But I felt there really wasn’t any other thing I could do if I wanted to live. If the surgery was good, I’d live a little longer and have more time with my wife and family. If not, then I’d be with my Lord and Savior. Either way I’m a winner.” Instead of going through the femoral artery, doctors made a small incision between Channell’s ribs and guided the catheter to the heart where they deployed Two years ago, Robert Channell was told by his priand expanded the artificial valve. mary care doctor that he was not a candidate for “It apparently worked all right,” said open heart surgery, but might qualify for TAVR.

Parkwest is a ‘Best’

U.S. News & World Report ranks three Covenant Health hospitals in state’s Top 10 Parkwest Medical Center has been named among the top 10 Best Hospitals in Tennessee in U.S. News & World Report’s 2013-14 ranking. The annual U.S. News Best Hospitals ranking recognizes hospitals that excel in treating the most challenging patients. Parkwest is ranked eighth in the state, and is also ranked among the Best Hospitals in Eastern Tennessee and among Best Hospitals in Knoxville Metro area. “A hospital that emerges from our analysis as one of the best has much to be proud of,” said Avery Comarow, U.S. News Health Rankings Editor. “Only about 15 percent of hospitals are recognized for their high performance as among their region’s best. Just 3 percent of all hospitals earn a national ranking in any specialty.” Parkwest CAO Rick Lassiter echoed that sentiment. “We are proud to be a member of such a high-performing system as Covenant Health which has three of the top 10 rated

Additonally, Parkwest received “high performing” scores in: ■ Gastroenterology and Gastrointestinal Surgery ■ Gynecology and ■ Pulmonology. U.S. News evaluates hospitals in 16 adult specialties. In most specialties, it ranks the nation’s top 50 hospitals and recognizes other high-performing hospitals that provide care at nearly the level of their nationally ranked peers. “We are very proud of our physicians, nurses and employees who work diligently to provide excellent care for our patients, who are ultimately the true beneficiaries of the awards,” said Covenant Health President and CEO Tony Spezia. “We are committed to providing excellent care for every patient, every time.” U.S. News publishes Best Hospitals to help guide patients who need a Parkwest CAO Rick Lassiter high level of care because they face hospitals in Tennessee,” Lassiter said. particularly difficult surgery, a “It is also an honor for Parkwest to be challenging condition, or added risk recognized by U.S. News & World Report.” because of other health problems or

age. Objective measures such as patient survival and safety data, the adequacy of nurse staffing levels and other data largely determined the rankings in most specialties. Covenant Health’s Fort Sanders Regional and Methodist medical centers join Parkwest in being recognized in the top 10 list of Best Hospitals. For the past several years Covenant Health has been named among the top health systems in the country, and its hospitals and medical facilities are known for quality and award-winning care. Detailed rankings have been published at best-hospitals and will appear in print in the U.S. News Best Hospitals 2014 guidebook, available in bookstores and on newsstands Aug. 27. The specialty rankings and data were produced for U.S. News by RTI International, a leading research organization based in Research Triangle Park, N.C. Using the same data, U.S. News produced the state and metro rankings.

of the palette knife When Ruth Koh first puts paint on a new canvas, she rarely knows what the finished product will be.

Carol Zinavage

Carol’s Corner “I don’t do a lot of thinking when I’m working,” she says. “Then a painting looks contrived.” She is a wizard of the palette knife, the same technique used by Bob Ross in his popular PBS series “Joy of Painting.” But Koh’s masterful paintings are a far cry from “happy little trees.” In her cozy, comfortable studio – a former kitchen in her New Market, Tenn. home – Koh paints landscapes, waterscapes, cloud-

Quiet Reflections


scapes and abstract works that take the viewer’s breath away, while at the same time evoking a sense of serenity. “For as long as I can remember,” she says, “I have collected scenes that influence my mood and give me comfort.” She started collecting such scenes growing up in a small West Virginia town. She went on to receive a degree in art education at Eastern Kentucky University, but was frustrated with her classes there, finding that they offered little in the way of artistic creativity. While she did enjoy design classes and subtractive sculpture, she went on to a career in sales and marketing in Chicago. Life changes brought her to East Tennessee, where she worked as director of development for Saint Joseph School off Cedar Lane. In 1990 she met Jit Koh, a neighbor in her Fourth and Gill neighborhood, and the couple married in 1993.

They soon moved to a small 19th century tenant farmer’s cabin in New Market. While they were renovating, restoring and adding on, Ruth began to notice the beauty around her new home. Gradually she discovered the inspiration that she’d missed in college, and in 1998, she began painting seriously. Her paintings have been featured in numerous juried exhibitions, and can be found in galleries from Louisville to Atlanta, including The District Gallery on Kingston Pike in Knoxville. She’s also exhibited and sold work at the Knoxville Museum of Art’s Artscape Auctions. “Here on our farm, I am fascinated with moments when a cloud is just so, and then shape shifts before my eyes,” she muses. “If I take the time to look, I see the interplay of light on water, distant views of neighbors’ farms and the primordial quality of the woods. “My art is about preserving moments in time. Clearly, living here in this environment influences my painting. Every day is different. Every moment is fleeting.” Ruth and Jit treasure their rural home and are eager tour guides, taking guests to visit their chickens, grape arbor, pond and old barn. (They’re often accompanied by their dog Fred, an exuberant shepherd mix who wags his tail with his entire body.) The main room of their house features floor-to-ceiling windows, giving them the opportunity to drink in the views every day. Jit, who teaches math at The Webb School of Knoxville, admits he has a long commute, but it’s worth it for all the beauty and quiet. When asked how she

starts a painting, Ruth replies, “I really don’t know. Sometimes I mix up some paint and I just start! I don’t know where it’s going to end up. It’s all intuitive. “If I force it,” she continues, “it’s a bad painting.” She likes it best when she just goes with the flow. “Sometimes you just know when you’ve nailed it. You know it’s time to stop.” Ruth doesn’t tailor her art to what she thinks people might buy. “The hardest thing for me,” she says, “is to not paint what other people are painting. I’m looking for a market that wants my work.” Currently helping to care for her 95-year-old mother, she’s channeling her feelings into a new series of abstracts. One is called “Finding Balance.” They’re sure to be seen on a gallery wall soon. To view Ruth Koh’s paintings and learn more about her and her art, visit

Irresistible Milo Milo is a 1-year-old pug mix who was rescued from a backyard breeder, so he started out with little human contact. He has since come out of his shell. He is very sweet and enjoys being held. The folks currently caring for him at the Humane Society of the Tennessee Valley think he has an “old” soul. Milo can be adopted for $150, which will include a neuter and update on vaccinations. Info: 5739675 or email info@

Recognize the signs of a stroke FAST! The early symptoms of stroke are often overlooked or ignored. If you suspect that you or a loved one is having a stroke, think FAST:

F – FACE: Look at your face. Is one side sagging? A – ARMS: Hold out your arms. Is one arm lower than the other or harder to hold in place? S – SPEECH: Is your speech slurred or garbled? T – TIME: Time is critical when trying to minimize the effects of stroke.

Call 911 and get to a hospital as quickly as possible. And be sure your hospital is a stroke-ready, Comprehensive Stroke Center, like Fort Sanders Regional.

Comprehensive stroke care at Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center As the leading rehabilitation center in East Tennessee, the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center treats about 1,000 patients every year who are recovering from illnesses like cancer, orthopedic injuries and injuries to the spinal cord or brain. But among them all, about 80 percent of the center’s patients per year are there because of the effects of stroke. A stroke is a clot or bleed in the brain, robbing the brain of oxygen. Strokes are the fourth-leading cause of death in the United States and a leading cause of disability. “Patricia Neal is well known Wendy Callahan, PNRC Stroke for stroke rehabilitation,” said Program Coordinator Wendy Callahan, a speech Patricia Neal is located at therapist and the center’s stroke Fort Sanders Regional Medical program coordinator.

Center, which has state-of-theart capabilities for treating and preventing strokes. The hospital has been named a Comprehensive Stroke Center, a prestigious accreditation by The Joint Commission and the American Heart Association/ American Stroke Association. Few hospitals nationwide have received this recognition, and no other hospital in East Tennessee offers better comprehensive care from stroke diagnosis to discharge. “We have a complete continuum of care with Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center,” said Callahan. “Patients can come through the best hospital for stroke and then continue at the best center for rehabilitation.”

In addition to stroke care, Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center also treats cancer patients, people with amputations, those who have endured traumatic brain or spinal cord injuries, people with balance problems and even those with Parkinson’s disease. The center offers specialists in assistive technology for wheelchairs, communication, driving and even sports. “We treat all ages, from children to older adults,” said Callahan. But beyond the excellent medical therapy offered, Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center also pays attention to the emotional needs of patients as well. A team of psychologists and peer volunteers offer emotional

support, encouraging patients and their families. “Stroke and brain injuries change your life. It’s very hard,” said Callahan, herself a stroke survivor. “All of a sudden your ability to work and live has changed within a day. It can really bring you down, and it’s hard for family members too,” she said. “Our counselors and peer volunteers offer a light at the end of a tunnel,” Callahan added. “It’s a person that shows them that yes, you can work though this, and life goes on.”
