MPC staff gives nod to Emory Church project Staff of the Metropolitan Planning Commission is recommending that MPC approve rezoning and a site plan for John Huber’s proposed apartments and marina off Emory Church Road, subject to 20 conditions. The matter will be heard at this week’s MPC meeting, which starts at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 14, at the City County Building. Huber’s proposal calls for up to 312 apartments and 75 dock slips on 111.86 acres. Meanwhile, the Flournoy Development Co. has requested postponement until Feb. 13 for its plan to build up to 24.4 dwelling units per acre on 10.24 acres near the Northshore Town Center. Developers said they need time to “refine the design.”

South Waterfront ready to boom It’s not the biggest redevelopment project in the city’s history, but the South Waterfront project, which will eventually stretch from the planned River’s Edge Apartments, a 134 luxury unit building on the east side of Suttree Landing Park behind South Knoxville Elementary School on Sevier Avenue, to a student apartment complex on a connecting greenway that ends at the Ft. Dickerson recreation area to the west, is plenty big enough.

The end of war At the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, in the year 1918, World War I – the “war to end all wars” – officially ended. It was only two years ago that the last U. S. veteran of that war died: Frank Buckles, of West Virginia. Twenty-nine years after the “war to end all wars,” World War II began.

The flying Robinsons By Wendy Smith h Sam Robinson and Judy Wayman Robinson both loved airplanes as children, but neither could have imagined that they would one day build an airplane in their garage. Like most kids, Sam, a retired mechanical engineer, built his first airplane out of paper. He moved on to balsa wood and radio-controlled planes. He started flying lessons at 15 and took his first solo flight soon after his 16th birthday. “I don’t know what my parents were thinking,” he says. Judy fantasized about being a skywriter as a young child and pored over the chapter on flight in her 8th grade science book. She considered going to school to be a stewardess, but under the advisement of her parents, studied medical technology instead. Sam gave up flying when he went to college but resumed the hobby in his 30s. After meeting Judy at church, they flew together. Judy enjoyed the flights so much that when Sam temporarily let his credentials slip, she decided to become a pilot herself. Sam gave her lessons for her birthday. After flying 40 hours, Judy still

Sam recommended that she join the local flying club – Knoxville Flyers. After flying with a club member for an hour, she mastered landing. Sam became interested in building an airplane after seeing

a photo of a kit plane on the cover of an aviation magazine. They discussed it for a year until Judy told him to order a kit or quit talking about it. He chose a four-seat RV-10 kit from Van’s Aircraft. Kits are purchased and assembled one piece at

a time, which makes them significantly more affordable than purchasing a new airplane, he says. He began the project in 2003, and it took eight years. Judy served as the hired hand, To page A-3

Historic photograph is part of Knoxville’s heritage By Wendy Smith The ethereal photo depicting the Virgin Mary and her son is more than a holiday vignette to David Baker. It’s an important part of his family history. The photo is part of Knoxville’s history, too. The photographer is Joseph Knaffl, the son of Austrian court physician Dr. Rudolph Knaffl, who came to East Tennessee after fleeing the revolutions of 1848. Joseph Knaffl and his brother, Charles, opened a Knoxville photography studio called Knaffl & Bro. in 1884, and the business eventually moved to 522 Gay Street. In 1899, Joseph was in-

spired to create a Madonna and Child portrait from looking at the full moon, says Baker, who is the grandson of Joseph Knaffl. The photographer chose 18-year-old Emma Fanz, the daughter of his friend, Knoxville sausage magnate Ignaz Fanz, as his Madonna. His daughter, Josephine, was given the lofty role of baby Jesus. The infant, Baker’s mother, was frightened by the noise of the clanging trolley during the first photo shoot. To accommodate the tearful baby, the portrait was shot on a quiet Sunday afternoon, he says. The photo was a huge com-

mercial success. Thousands of sepia-toned prints were sold in the U.S. and Europe, and a few were hand-tinted, says Baker. Some questioned the authenticity of the color version, which highlighted Josephine’s blue eyes. According to Baker, the Madonna and Child portrait was Knaffl’s masterpiece. Exhibited in Chatauqua, New York, it was written up in a national arts magazine called Pen & Brush. The critic called the photo “a signal success.” One hundred years after the portrait debuted, Hallmark used the image on two Christmas cards, along with the text from Isaiah 9:

Mid-term report card: By Betty Bean Last week, Gloria Johnson put both her jobs on the block by inviting her fellow teachers to speak out about their grievances with Knox County Schools. As a state representative, she was handing her political opponents a potential opportunity to brand her ineffective, a troublemaker. As a lifelong educator, she was risking the ire of those who sign her paycheck. But her colleagues answered the call. Dozens of teachers attended a Monday night planning session. Most had never spoken publicly about their grievances, and many – but not all – were apprehensive about speaking out. Some asked a reporter not to use their names. But Johnson helped them screw up their courage and hone messages to present at the Wednesday night school board meeting. Some had gathered solid data; others presented first-hand accounts of how the system’s emphasis on endless high-stakes testing was impacting their students.

Gloria Johnson rallies the troops All spoke with conviction. The atmosphere was creative and collegial. They vowed to have one another’s backs, and they decided to wear red to symbolize their resolve. As good as the Monday meeting felt, Wednesday night would tell the tale. The 60 teachers at the planning session would be swallowed up in the large assembly room at the City County Building, which seats 310 people on the floor and another 136 in the balcony. If the teachers didn’t turn out in numbers, their concerns would be

dismissed and Johnson would become a statewide laughingstock. Tension rose that afternoon. But by the time board chair Lynne Fugate opened Wednesday’s meeting, almost every seat on the main floor and some 35 in the balcony were occupied, and almost everybody wore red. One by one, they presented their concerns, complaints and demands: A Spanish teacher talked about being asked to speak less Spanish during her evaluation because her evaluator didn’t speak the language. An elementary school teacher said her classroom is distracted so often by outsiders that students have asked why so many adult “stalkers” are in the room. A special education teacher said that forcing reading-disabled students to take written tests dooms them to failure (and probably violates federal law). Others spoke out about: ■ An unfair evaluation which includes 61 indicators on a rubric. ■ Students being taken out of


“For unto us a child is born, unto us a son is given ...” Fanz has her own place in the city’s history. She married Will Price, and they were one of the first families in the area to own an automobile. She became Knoxville’s first car-wreck widow when Price blew a tire and plummeted into a ravine.

At Southeastern Retina Associates the focus is all on the eyes By Anne Hart November is Diabetes Awareness Month, which brings a reminder of the devastating role the disease can play in damaging or even destroying eyesight, and of the importance of good ophthalmologic care. Diabetes is the leading cause of blindness for people under 50. Diabetes affects the eyes by causing deterioration of blood vessels in the retina. The retina is the nerve tissue in the eye which functions similar to the film in a camera. The breakdown of retinal blood vessels may result in fluid leaking into the center of the retina (macular edema) or abnormal blood vessels that grow on the surface of the retina (neovascularization), which can bleed and scar. This can lead to permanent loss of vision. The physicians at Southeastern Retina Associates (SERA) have been caring for patients with diabetic retinopathy for over 30 years. The physicians at SERA are the only retina specialists in the Knoxville region who are board-certified in ophthalmology by the American Board of Ophthalmology. As retina specialists, the physicians at SERA specialize in treating diseases of the retina. That specialization and experience has led SERA to become the most trusted retina practice in the region. Almost all of the patients seen at SERA have been referred by other eye care providers who trust the physicians of SERA to provide the highest

level of care to their patients with diabetic retinopathy, macular degeneration, retinal detachment, and other retinal conditions. “We are proud of the care we have provided to the East Tennessee community over the last 30 years and appreciate the trust our patients and their physicians have placed in us,” says Dr. John Hoskins, the founder of SERA. Diabetic retinopathy can cause permanent vision loss if not identified early. Dr. James Miller notes “It is important to remember that diabetic retinopathy may not cause any symptoms in its early stages, so it is critical that people with diabetes mellitus undergo at least an annual eye exam, even if there are no apparent vision symptoms.” All patients with diabetes are urged to have an annual eye exam. “Prevention is the key to maintaining your vision because all too often the nerve damage that results from diabetic retinopathy cannot be reversed,” says Dr. Miller. Similarly, good blood sugar control is a critical aspect of preventing and managing diabetic retinopathy. Patients with diabetic retinopathy are often treated with medication, lasers, and surgery if necessary. All of the physicians at SERA completed four years of medical school, a one-year internship in medicine and surgery, a three-year ophthalmology residency, and a two-year fellowship in medical and surgical retina care, so they are well-trained to provide a full spectrum of care to diabetic patients.

They are the only specialists in the area who provide both medical and surgical care to their patients. “We are the only retina specialists in the area who are trained to manage all aspects of diabetic retinopathy,” notes Dr. Tod McMillan. SERA is a nationally-recognized retina practice with a very active clinical trial and research program. SERA has been a leader in multiple nationally known clinical research studies for diabetic retinopathy, age-related macular degeneration, retinal vascular occlusion, and other diseases of the retina. “By collaborating with the National Eye Institute and leading clinical research studies, our practice is able to provide cutting-edge treatment to patients in East Tennessee that they cannot obtain anywhere else,” notes Dr. Joseph Googe. With offices in the Knoxville, Chattanooga and Tri-cities areas, the physicians with SERA have the confidence of patients and their referring physicians from Wytheville, VA. to Dalton, GA and from Crossville, TN to North Carolina. SERA’s retina specialists utilize the most advanced therapies and surgical approaches, combined with unfailing attention to consistency and detail, to provide the best treatment available, including surgery when necessary.

Knox students practice making healthy choices First, the teens were invited to the party tent, where they were offered drinks and pills. The choices they made there determined whether they moved on to the education center, rehab or a visit to the health center for STD counseling. Ultimately, their choices could land them in a homeless camp, in jail or even in a coffin. Fortunately, the maze was entirely make-believe. But the middle and high school students who attended the Knox County Health Department’s Healthy SWAG (Students Working to Attend Greatness), titled “Life’s Amazing,” learned how decisions made at the party had very real consequences. This year’s event was held at Bearden High School, and students from across the county attended, including Caroline Bradley, a senior at Central High School. During her trip through the maze, she “overdosed” on ADHD medication, which she began using while trying to get off methamphetamines. In the real world, Caroline is a sensible student who doesn’t use drugs. But she was surprised to learn that, once you start, you will be dependent on drugs for a long time. “This puts it in a real-life

perspective,” she said. In addition to the maze, the event provided entertaining education about physical fitness, nutrition and safe driving. Don Lindsay of AAA of East Tennessee trained students about the dangers of driving distractions like phones and food. The biggest distraction for drivers young and old is “our own brains,” he said. Good habits, like keeping a safe following distance, allow drivers to be human and still survive. Numerous community partners volunteered their time to make the event a success, said TENNderCARE Program Director Charlayne Frazier. “They were here to help teens.” ■

Old neighborhood; new name

The neighborhood just west of West Town Mall was built in the 1950s, but it didn’t have a name until a month ago. A recent Neighborhood Advisory produced by the city’s Office of Neighbor-

hoods reports that the 107 homes bordered by Ray Mears Blvd., Montvue Road, Gleason Drive and Downtown West are now part of a subdivision called West Hills at Montvue. The naming process began when a new resident expressed interest in creating signage for the subdivision’s five entrances. Having no name made this problematic. Deeds in theneighborhood refer to it as West Hills subdivision (Unit 10), which doesn’t exactly roll off the tongue. It was so named because the homes were built by the same developer at the same time as the better-known subdivision on the other side of the interstate. A more recent neighborhood watch group called themselves West Hills South, but since there has never been a neighborhood association, residents have never agreed on a name. In order to address the problem, a neighborhood meeting was held. Residents were challenged to come up with a name that expressed the character and location of the subdivision while being catchy and marketable. They unanimously agreed to keep “West Hills,” but make it geographically specific. Glad to know you, West Hills at Montvue!

Flying Robinsons

Sam Robinson, Marlene Viravec, Joe Viravec, Bill Cook, Kathy Huelsemann and Steve Long install wings on Sam and Judy Robinson’s airplane. Neighbors in Farrington subdivision frequently offered to pitch in when they saw Sam working on the airplane. Photos submitted and sometimes the cheerleader, while the plane was constructed in the garage of their West Knox home. There were times when Sam wanted to quit, and living in a home strewn with airplane parts was challenging, she says. The project was made easier with the help of friends. Neighbor Joe Viravec, a retired Boeing employee, helped with assembly, and others pitched in when the work moved out to the driveway. Another neighbor, Billy Vaughn, moved the airplane to Knoxville Island Downtown Airport when it was

completed. The Robinsons took their first flight in October of 2011 after the plane was inspected by the FAA. Friends on the ground had a radio so they could let the couple know if the plane caught on fire or something fell off, Sam jokes. Since spending 3,200 hours building the airplane, the Robinsons now devote their time to sharing their love of flying with the next generation of pilots. Sam is the president of the Experimental Aircraft Association’s local Young Eagles chapter. The organization,

operated by volunteer pilots, gives children ages 8 to 18 the opportunity to fly. Judy is a member of the Ni nety-Nines, the international organization of women pilots. The Ninety-Nines promote aviation through education and scholarships and provide an opportunity for women to share their love of flying. “When we get together and start talking about airplanes, it’s magic,” she says. The Robinsons recommend that prospective pilots visit the Knoxville Flyers website:

She is visible in solving issues such as the initial foolish decision to change the camera lights at the entrance to Turkey Creek shopping which developer John Turley highlighted. She corrected the error. What has gone unmentioned is that her old job as senior director has gone unfilled. The Rogero Administration has not made an official announcement, but it is evident it is not going to be filled which will save city taxpayers over $160,000 a year since the two jobs of Mannis and Branscom have effectively been combined without any public acknowledgement. Frankly, both positions were not needed and Branscom doing both jobs with only a $500 annual pay hike proves it. More efficiency and cost cutting in city government is to be admired and applauded. Meanwhile the Rogero administration is being tight-lipped about life after Angela Starke, communications director, who departs in December for Florida where her husband has a new job. Discussion ranges from simply filling the position with someone new, elevating Jesse Mayshark who makes $40,000 a year less than Starke or re-arranging the whole operation by merging it into a new department. Mayshark has been the go-to person for city information. The next person may not make the same salary which Starke has had. Stay tuned. Complicating matters is that Starke’s departure leaves the Rogero Administration without an African-American leading an operating department.

Betty Bean OK, then. Meanwhile, staunch Haslam supporters like the Tennessee Medical Association and the hospital lobbyists, who evidently haven’t found tort reform to be the solution to their financial problems, are ramping up the pressure to get him to sign on to the Medicaid deal so they can get reimbursed for treating the poor and the sick. Vanderbilt Medical Center is getting ready to lay off 1,000 workers; rural hospitals are threatening to close, leaving Haslam to take the fall when communities end up without access to medical care. This is devil and the deep blue sea territory, and surely not what Haslam anticipated when he rolled over

Ramsey in the 2010 GOP primary with 47 percent of the vote. Ramsey’s 22 percent couldn’t even beat Zach Wamp’s 29 percent. Should he have realized that Ramsey would be holding him hostage before he’d finished his first term? Probably, given the makeup of the upper house of the General Assembly, which is dominated by what John McCain calls the “wacko-bird” faction. Think maybe Haslam wishes he were back in Knoxville where he could count on a collegial, nonpartisan City Council to pretty much endorse his every wish – Knoxville, the running of which he could delegate to trusted deputies Larry Martin and Bill Lyons while he spent two years shaking hands from Memphis to Mountain City trying to be governor – Knoxville, where reporters were friendly, their bosses

deferential and there was no problem a phone call from his daddy couldn’t go a long way toward solving? Heck yes. He had a sweet ride over here. Maybe he’s been thinking about that since last March, when, after months of deliberation, internal debate and just plain dithering, he announced what everybody already pretty much knew – that he was turning down $1.4 billion the federal government stood ready to fork over to expand Medicaid under the Affordable Care Act. No healthcare for you, 300,000 uninsured Tennesseans. And if you’re waiting on that Tennessee Plan, which is supposed to leverage those federal dollars to buy private health insurance for poor people, don’t hold your breath. It’s a will o’ the wisp. Bill Haslam is not the most powerful guy in Nashville.

Tennessee basketball? Myth or maybe? says Tennessee is No. 23 until further notice. His analysis was powerful: “Stokes will be a key up front. A healthy Maymon will help.” I had no idea. Here are the unspoken keys to this being a good team: Antonio Barton, fifthyear senior imported from Memphis as a surplus Tiger, must move the ball at a faster pace, get out on the break, feed the big bullies inside. Stokes really needs a short jump shot. Has he developed one? We’ll see. Here’s one of the mythor-maybe parts: Can Tennessee guard guards? Perhaps Barton or freshman Darius Thompson or multitalented Josh Richardson or somebody deeper on the bench can make critical stops. The previous two teams boosted several opposing guards toward fame and fortune. Trae Golden, since departed with only rumored explanation, was at the forefront of that problem. He lacked quick, nimble feet. But he could hit clutch free throws. Replacing poise at

the foul line is another unspoken key. In theory, there will be more free-throwing. Officials have been told to remove some of the toughness from defense. If it really happens, that is bad news. Defensive toughness, not yet developed, was supposedly one of Cuonzo’s hallmarks. Here is the other unspoken key to significant improvement, another myth-or-maybe segment: Has Tennessee developed an offensive strategy for attacking zones? If it remains the same, bombs away, can highly regarded newcomer Robert Hubbs or McRae or Richardson hit the required percentage of threes? Martin thinks Tennessee will be a pretty good team. “I think the most important thing is not to get caught up in what other people are saying…we know what we need to do to be successful.” Coach wasn’t talking about me. I hadn’t said anything at the time. There are encouraging signs of success – more talent, more experience, more

depth, more matchup flexibility. Leadership is strengthened with Maymon’s return. He tried during his sit-out season but there is a significant difference in talking a good game and playing one. Maymon can play. Stokes has lost a few pounds and appears a bit quicker. He got that message last spring when NBA evaluators shocked him with several reasons he should remain in college. At heart, Jarnell is a gladiator who goes hard to the boards. He generally maintained effort last season even when he didn’t get the ball. Stokes is a winner if the refs will let him breathe. McRae is one of the better developmental stories in the country. As Vitale likes to say, he has come a long way, baby. He may actually be an NBA scorer. Hubbs, top new talent, is also a shooter. Alas and alas, Tennessee must play with just one ball at a time. That probably means more games will be won or lost on defense.

■ The News Sentinel is risking a “timmy” on McCroskey. Those around in 1994 remember when then-editor Harry Moskos took off after Sheriff Tim Hutchison, accusing him of misconduct. The criticism was so excessive that Hutchison caught a backlash

wave, which elected him over Rudy Bradley by 5,000 votes and even propelled Bill Frist over Bob Corker in the GOP primary for U.S. Senate. (The Sentinel endorsed Corker.)

There’s no place like home ‌ ‘Toto’ watches as Warner opens shop in Knoxville By Sherri Gardner Howell Princess was quiet, but she kept her eye on the door at the new Diana Warner shop in the Gallery Shopping Center, 7420 Kingston Pike in Bearden. Used to fame and adoration, Princess, a cairn terrier who belongs to designer Diana Warner, had an eight-year stint on the stage in New York, playing Toto in “The Wizard of Oz.â€? Now retired, the 14-yearold dog is there to encourage her owner as she opens her first retail store outside the Big Apple to see if it is true that, “There’s no place like home.â€? Warner, 32, a Farragut High School and University of Tennessee graduate, began her career in 2005 with Diana Warner Studio as a jewelry designer. She started with beading, then semiprecious, then precious gemstones, creating pieces

that “reflect my Tennessee childhood.â€? Her studio is now located in Gramercy Park in Manhattan and services more than 700 stores worldwide. Her jewelry is handcrafted in a workshop on 21st Street, right off Park Avenue. Warner’s designed have caught the eye of many celebrities and have been on the red carpet at many major award shows, on television shows such as “Gossip Girlâ€? and featured in highend fashion magazines like Marie Claire and Lucky. She created a jewelry line for the rock band Styx and country music stars Tim McGraw and Faith Hill in 2012. The opening of the store in Bearden also heralds an expansion of the Diana Warner brand, says the owner. The collection already features accessories, specialty items and home dĂŠcor and will now include a shoe line and a line of denim. “The shoe collection is here now and features everything from boots to high heels,â€? says Warner. “They are designed for comfort and

The denim should be in next week.� Her parents, Bob and Ellen Bundy, are helping with the new store. Warner says she has a complete staff at the Knoxville store and will split her time between Knoxville and New York. Warner says she hopes the store will be the first of many. “My focus has always been to build the very first of what I hope will become many concept stores in my own hometown.� The store has been developed in conjunction with Be-Styled,

Knoxville’s first blow dry bar, which is next door to her store and is a division of Salon Visage. Philanthropy has been part of Warner’s career since the beginning, when she spent two months in South Africa. The company supports Many Hopes, a child advocacy organization that works for children and orphans in Kenya. Locally, the store’s soft opening last week held benefits for Christian Academy of Knoxville and other charities. The boutique’s hours are

The Battle of Fort Sanders In November, 1863, two battle-scarred generals – Union Gen. Ambrose Burnside and Confederate Gen. James Longstreet – faced one another in the Knoxville Campaign.

Jim Tumblin

To buy time for his engineers to put the final touches on fortifications in Knoxville, Burnside planned an orderly withdrawal of about 5,000 troops to Loudon, southwest of the city. They were to march to Lenoir Station (now Lenoir City), through a crucial road crossing at Campbell’s Station, and into the protection of his positions in Knoxville. Longstreet, with about 12,000 combined infantry and artillery, advanced northward from Chattanooga on a parallel route. The race was on, made more difficult by heavy rain and the resulting mud. The Federal troops won the race to the crossing by some 15 minutes. The sharp contest that occurred at Campbell’s Station on Nov. 16, 1863, resulted in 338 Union casualties to 174 for the Confederates. After delay for reconnaissance and because of the terrible weather, Longstreet finally scheduled the assault on Fort Sanders, where he thought Burnside was most vulnerable. Fort Sanders was constructed on an eminence near downtown Knoxville, at present-day 17th St. and Laurel Ave. The staging area for the Confederate attack was northwest of the fort, near present-day Forest Ave. and the Norfolk and Southern Railroad tracks. Both sides lacked food, adequate clothing and shoes. After 17 days of siege, Burnside’s army had been reduced to quarter rations. The fort was surrounded by a ditch 6-8 feet deep but appearing only 3-4 feet deep. From distant Confederate observation posts, troops were observed crossing easily but they were walking on planks. Longstreet had been warned he would need scaling ladders, but he was deceived by the apparent shallow depth of the ditch and did not prepare them. For perhaps 30 to 80 yards in front of the northwest bastion that was selected for the assault, there

were 18-inch tree stumps between which engineers had stretched telegraph wire to trip and delay the attackers. Gen. Porter Alexander, Confederate artillery commander, had 34 guns in Knoxville. Burnside had 51. Inside the fort, 1st Lt. Samuel Benjamin had 335 Union riflemen and 105 artillery working 12 cannons. Longstreet commanded 4,000 Confederate veterans of Robert E. Lee’s campaigns in the East (almost a 10-to-1 ratio). His first as-

sault troops crouched low and approached the fort at dawn on Nov. 29, 1863. Says author D. G. Seymour: “With a rush and a yell the surging gray column advanced up the hill toward Ft. Sanders. As they neared the fort the leading lines crashed through brush barriers and bowled them aside like tenpins, but in the darkness the men tripped and stumbled over the telegraph wires stretched between the stumps. As the lead troops began tearing

and kicking at the wires, they were knocked over by the sheer weight of numbers of the rest of the onrushing troops. At the moment of delay and confusion, one cannon ... in the fort fired two quick rounds of canister into the storming party, but quickly closing their ranks the Confederates reached the ditch and chased away the gunners exposed on the platform. “The rapid advance in almost complete darkness over terrain filled with ob-

They expected to get a toe hold on the berm and scale the parapet with one leap. But as they surged into the ditch they discovered to their horror that in places it was more than 11 feet deep, the embankment was slippery and icy, the berm had been cut away and the parapet

had been built up very high with cotton bales.� In 20 minutes the battle was finished. There was nothing for the men in the ditch to do but surrender. Longstreet suffered some 800 casualties, Burnside only 13. Longstreet took a few days to assemble his wounded and retreated through Strawberry Plains and Mossy Creek to Russellville. The Union controlled Knoxville for the remainder of the war. Both armies had stripped the area of its foodstuff and livestock. Guerrilla warfare, hunger and deprivation marked the period.

Crafters give back at Holiday Market

The end of war

By Wendy Smith Messiah Lutheran Church recently held its third annual WELCA (Women of the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America) Holiday Market. Shopping was brisk, in spite of the many events that are scheduled on weekends of the University of Tennessee’s away games, says Mary Ellen Whitson, who coordinated the event. This year, funds raised by WELCA’s craft booth, bake sale and booth rental benefited Beardsley Community Farm. Returning crafters included Nancy Larson, who uses an antique sock-knitting machine to produce socks, scarves, baby hats and dolls, and clay artist Sandy Booher, who added terrariums to her booth this year. Cris Miramontes and Judy Lewis of Better Than New had a booth at the market for the first time. They, along with partner Debbie Gustafson, shop at thrift and bargain stores for jewelry, which they dissemble and rework to create new, one-of-a-kind pieces. A

faith When he was sitting on the Mount of Olives, the disciples came to him privately, saying, “Tell us, when will this be, and what will be the sign of your coming and of the end of the age? Jesus answered them, “Beware that no one leads you astray. For many will come in my name, saying, ‘I am the Messiah!’ and they will lead many astray. And you will hear of wars and rumors of wars; see that you are not alarmed; for this must take place, but the end is not yet. (Matthew 24: 3-6 NRSV)

Cross Currents

Lynn Pitts

seem to get over those seven deadly sins: wrath, greed, sloth, pride, lust, envy and gluttony, all of which (it seems to me) boil down to selfishness. So when a man gives his life for a cause larger than himself – say, the salvation of the world – it is an act of total heroic unselfishness. We all need heroes. At times, history provides an opportunity for men and women to do heroic things. Sometimes God provides such an opportunity for us – you and me: a chance to stand up and be counted, to take a stand, to perform a service, to do a task, to be a hero. There are heroes among us – quiet heroes we don’t notice – who are faithfully doing the right things, the necessary things, the difficult things. It is my prayer that we will watch for them, study them and emulate them. And if we are called on to be a hero, even for a moment, we will hear that call, answer the summons and faithfully do our best.

At the eleventh hour, on the eleventh day of the eleventh month, in the year 1918, World War I – the “war to end all wars” – officially ended. It was only two years ago that the last U. S. veteran of that war died: Frank Buckles, of West Virginia. Twenty-nine years after the “war to end all wars,” World War II began. Ironically enough, Mr. Buckles would become a prisoner of war in that conflict. After his service in World War I, he took up a career as a ship’s officer on merchant vessels. He was captured by the Japanese in the Philippines during World War II, and held prisoner of war for more than three years before he was freed by U. S. troops. So far, wars have not ended war, nor have they been accurate predictors of the end of the world. Jesus was right: “the end is not yet.” So the end of the world is somewhere in the future. Tomorrow? Next week? A millennium from now? Two millennia? If this little blue planet is home, and we are unable, so far, to escape its environs en masse, why can’t we stop killing each other?

By Cindy Taylor Women at Trinity UMC have knitted so many shawls, baby blankets and hats they can’t really remember how many they’ve finished or given away – and the ministry keeps going.

They don’t always know who receives them but occasionally word comes back. “I have a friend with breast cancer who helps out at Powell Playhouse,” said Pam Cunningham. “We gave her a prayer shawl and she had it at work with her. When she told everyone what the shawl was for, a group prayed around her right before a performance.” The lap robes, prayer shawls and other handmade items are distributed at no cost to the recipients. Helmet liners and fingerless gloves have been sent to members of the armed forces in Afghanistan and Iraq. The women have been working in the ministry since 2005.

Shopper-News Presents Miracle Makers

Teachers get fired up By Betsy Pickle Teachers from throughout the area got a lift last Tuesday night at Reach Them To Teach Them at the Tennessee Theatre. From a Petros supper and gift bags to a program featuring sports broadcaster Roy Firestone and radio host Hallerin Hilton Hill, the evening was all about celebrating and reinvigorating educators, and it appeared to be a huge success. “It was great,” Jackie Jacobsen, ELL teacher at Belle Morris Elementary School, said of Firestone’s presentation. “I thought it was very entertaining. I really appreciated it and the inspiration that it gives us all.” Hill drew on humorous and poignant remembrances from his childhood to illustrate the impact teachers can have on students. Firestone, a seven-time Emmy Award winner, used video clips of sports triumphs and bloopers, along with some impressive singing and mimicry chops, to drive home the “Field of Dreams”inspired message, “If you build it, they will become.” Buzz Thomas, president of the Great Schools Partnership, served as MC. Scotty Hicks, 8th grade social studies teacher at Maryville Middle School, performed his poem “I Am a Teacher,” and the FreshWind Youth Mass Choir, directed by John Jackson, sang two songs for the audience. Amy Crawford, a 7th grade English teacher at West Valley Middle School and founder of Reach Them To Teach Them, was exhausted but elated at the end of the evening. “Our very first event about eight years ago, we had about 500 people,” said Crawford. “Tonight, we had in the neighborhood of 1,600.” The program drew teachers from Blount, Cocke, Hamblen, Jefferson, Knox and Roane counties. “We had 1,100 teachers from Knox County preregistered,” Crawford said. “Every single Knox County school was represented here tonight, so we’re really excited. We think that what we’re doing is going to have an impact on the lives of the kids that we teach every day.” Crawford said she thought that they had achieved all three of their stated goals. “The first goal is to appreciate – that every teacher who comes to a Reach Them To Teach Them event feels appreciated. The second goal is that they feel inspired, that they find something that they can take with them back into their classrooms and use with their students or their sports teams or their youth groups. “And the third component of

By Shana Raley-Lusk For Knoxville area athletes, Provision is now offering unparalleled tness and training services. As the area’s premier source for sports medicine, tness testing, biomechanical analysis and sports performance advice, the Performance Lab is truly one of a kind. According to Provision’s Dr. Kevin Sprouse, there is no time like the present to get started with testing to plan for upcoming training. “There is no need to wait until you are tter,” he says. “In fact, if you want your training to be as efcient as possible and realize the greatest gains, don’t wait to start your journey.” Sprouse, a Knoxville native, received his degree in exercise science from Wake Forest University. After attending medical school and completing a residency in emergency

medicine, Sprouse also completed a sports medicine fellowship at the esteemed Steadman Hawkins Clinic in Greenville, S.C. Since then, he has served as a race doctor for running competitions, triathlons and cycling races across the country. He currently serves as team physician for Garmin-Sharp Pro Cycling. In the course of his career, he has also cared for professional and Olympic athletes around the world. He brings this vast experience to Provision Performance Lab. He reminds endurance athletes that the off-season is the perfect time to reassess progress and goals for the future. The Provision Performance Lab offers physiologic testing such as VO2 max and lactate testing as well as biochemical evaluation including bike t, gait analysis,

and functional movement screening. “I started with the lactate threshold testing and VO2 max testing. These gave me a baseline to let me know how to improve my athletic performance,” said triathlete Rebekah Roberts. “I am now competing in some group runs with the Performance Lab. It’s a great way to connect with other athletes.” The experts at the Provision Performance Lab share the common goal of enabling athletes to optimize training while decreasing the likelihood

of injury. Sprouse will personally review the results of all testing with each athlete. Then, he will either report the ndings to your coach or provide a list of coaches that he can recommend for further training. Sprouse and the professionals at Provision Performance Lab are an invaluable resource for Knoxville’s endurance athletes.

Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett talks with Autumn Care owner Peter Falk at the grand opening. With baby boomers aging, facilities that offer choices and custom designs are hitting the mark with today’s population. West Knoxville welcomed a new facility when Autumn Care Assisted Living Community officially opened with a ribbon-cutting and grand opening on Nov. 5. The community at 136 Canton Hollow Road is lo-

cated off Kingston Pike and Lovell Road. It features custom designs with a variety of apartment types, restaurant-style dining, and multi-purpose recreational and social areas.

South Waterfront ready to boom By Betty Bean It’s not the biggest redevelopment project in the city’s history – the convention center and World’s Fair Park were bigger and so was the realignment of Neyland Drive – but the South Waterfront project, which will eventually stretch from the planned River’s Edge Apartments, a 134 luxury unit building on the east side of Suttree Landing Park behind South Knoxville Elementary School on Sevier Avenue, to a student apartment complex on a connecting greenway that ends at the Ft. Dickerson recreation area to the west, is plenty big enough. Knox County Commission and the Knoxville Community Development Corporation board have approved a $22 million, 30-year tax increment financing deal requested by developer Blanchard & Calhoun, which has an option to purchase the Baptist Hospital property from Tennova Healthcare. This will give developers a tax break for twice as long as the usual TIF, but city officials say the results will be well worth the wait because it will tie components of the waterfront project together.

Redevelopment director Bob Whetsel and deputy director Dawn Michelle Foster Photo by Betty Bean

“If you take most of the investment that’s gone on downtown in the past five years, this is as big as we’ve done,” said Knoxville’s Director of Redevelopment Bob Whetsel. It’s going to be Deputy Redevelopment Director Dawn Michelle Foster’s job to shepherd the South Waterfront project. Whetsel is an old redevelopment hand, having been

with the city since 1993, when he was hired by former Mayor Victor Ashe. Foster, who has an undergraduate degree in civil engineering from Western Kentucky and a master’s in planning from the University of Tennessee, has been with the city for a year and a half and has lived in Knoxville since 1988. Foster said the first thing Knoxvillians can expect to see is work on the former

News from two moms

Baptist Hospital medical office building at the corner of Blount Avenue and the south end of the Gay St. Bridge. This is the newest, most modern piece of the former hospital complex, and work could begin there by early next year, if all goes well. The medical office building will be rehabbed, turning the lower levels into a hotel, with luxury apartments on the upper level above that,’ she said. “Refacing of the Baptist Eye Institute buildings (on the south side of Blount Avenue) will begin, and there are three buildings altogether to be remodeled. The ones on the other side of the street will be office/retail, and the main part of the hospital will be demolished.” The old hotel on the corner of Blount and Chapman is to be demolished, as well. And although the city’s not exactly counting on it, there’s even a futuristic conceptual plan for a true pedestrian bridge that would connect the Southside to the upper concourse of Thompson-Bowling Area, if somebody can come up with the $20 million price tag and figure out how to meet state’s environmental requirements.

Two moms fueled by helping others By Sandra Clark Lisa Wolf and Juli Urevick have teamed up to share “the best nutrition for on-the-go moms.” Juli explains: “Lisa and I are at different points in our parenting lives. My kids are now 22, 20, 18 and 14 and Lisa is just beginning her journey with a two-year-old and a 4-month-old. We are friends in different places, with similar goals.” Both Lisa and Juli have worked in the health and wellness field for several years and are passionate about two things: their families and their health. “I feel so blessed to have an opportunity to help people get healthier while working from home and raising my kids,” says Lisa. “It’s the best of both worlds!” An endurance athlete who has competed in marathons and triathlons, Lisa says, “We teach people how to get a grip on their overall health. The nutritional products we share are the very best on the market and are part of a system that floods the body with incredible nutrients and rids the body of harmful toxins. The result is weight loss, better sleep, more energy and better performance in the gym.” Lisa discovered the products while looking for something to fuel her body during pre- and post-workouts. It was a game-changer, when she talked with her mom,

who had lost 50 pounds through this program. “When I saw what these products did to help my mom get healthier, I realized the potential that the products had to change lives. I haven’t stopped telling people about them since!” Lisa’s mother lost more than 50 pounds, while posting a reduction in her cholesterol and blood pressure. “It’s not just about the weight loss for my mom,” says Lisa, “It’s amazing to see her with more energy and confidence than I have seen in her in a long time. I love knowing that she has taken control of her health and will be around to watch my kids grow up. I’m so proud of her! “People get this nutrition in their body, see amazing results and never want to live without it. We help them along the way to improve their health and also show them how they can earn additional income by simply sharing with others. This is a very real business for us and is allowing us to stay home and raise our kids while earning money. It is truly a team effort,” said Juli. “The business is fun. The results are real. We’re just excited to meet the next person who will benefit from this.” Info: 865-548-4707 or or

with 850 property transfers in Knox County. The market outperformed last October’s number of 774 sales, and was only 20 off the pace set in September. The total value of land sold in October was just over $165 million. While that was about $20 million short of the September total, it was ahead of October 2012 by about $25 million. Historically, real estate ac-

tivity slows down somewhat during the last quarter of the year as cooler weather and shorter days make construction more challenging. Mortgage lending markets trended slower in October as around $256 million was loaned against real estate, $13 million less than September. Last October more than $336 million was loaned against real property. Mortgage lending

tends to fluctuate, and it appears that the latest refinancing surge may have reached a saturation point as national interest rates have inched upward. The largest real estate transfer of the month was a deed for property at 5032 Lyons View Pike which sold for $4,675,000. The largest mortgage transaction was a Trust Deed by Sachchidanand Hotel Papermill financing property on Papermill Road in the amount of $9.4 million.

Classical Christian educator and best-selling author N. D. Wilson will be the special guest speaker at Paideia A c a d e m y ’s tenth anniversary celebration later this month. N.D. Wilson Wilson was formerly the managing editor for Credenda/Agenda magazine and has authored a number of books in a variety of genres. His two young adult fiction trilogies – 100 Cupboards and The Ashtown Burials – have been met with rave reviews. Kirkus Review says 100 Cupboards is “a highly imaginative tale that successfully balances

its hero’s inner and outer struggles. Wilson’s writing is fantastical, but works with clever sentences and turns of phrase that render it more than just another rote fantasy.” Wilson is a graduate of New Saint Andrew’s College and holds a master’s degree in liberal arts from Saint John’s College. He currently serves as a professor of classical rhetoric at New Saint Andrew’s. He recently spoke at Desiring God 2013 National Conference on the work of C. S. Lewis and is always a favorite speaker at the Association of Classical and Christian Schools Conferences. Paideia Academy looks forward to hosting him as the keynote speaker for their commemorative event.

‘I wanted to get better.’ Retired nurse catches her breath at Parkwest rehab program Mary Eubanks says it was an effort just to get up and get dressed in the morning. Sitting with this retired nurse who is so perfectly put together, it’s difficult to imagine that she’s ever struggled with anything. Only the oxygen tank belies her medical struggles. And she wears it like a purse. Energetic and joyful, Mary tells the story of how she descended into dark days of fighting to breathe and fighting to have some semblance of quality of life. “I had gotten downhearted and discouraged,” Mary says. “Things like making the bed, cleaning the house and going to church – you take those things for granted until you can’t do them anymore.” In December of 2012, Mary was diagnosed as having multiple blood clots in her lungs. She had dealt with emphysema for five years and had been an asthmatic her entire life. So the simple act of breathing had always been especially important to her. She quit smoking 12 years ago. That simple act had become more and more difficult as time progressed. “It was a chore to do anything,” Mary says. “You’re just completely fatigued from struggling to breathe.” Her physician prescribed nighttime oxygen and referred her to pulmonologist Dr. Bruce Henschen, who sent her to Parkwest Medical Center and ordered a CT scan. While medication and monitoring got her to a therapeutic level, and portable oxygen kept her alive, Mary wanted to do more than just exist. “I couldn’t do anything,” she says, “and I wanted to get better.” That’s when Mary was referred to Parkwest Cardiopulmonary Wellness and Rehabilitation Center. Pulmonary rehabilitation helps people who have chronic lung disease to live well and manage their symptoms. Parkwest Pulmonary Rehabilitation was one of the first programs to receive national certification by the American Association

of Cardiovascular and Pulmonary Rehabilitation for consistent clinical outcomes with lung patients. The nurses, respiratory therapists, exercise physiologists, dietitians, counselors and pharmacists at Parkwest Pulmonary Rehabilitation work as a team, along with physicians, to provide an intensive lifestyle modification approach for lung disease symptom management. Each session lasts two hours, with one hour for medically supervised and monitored exercise and one for group education. Individual counseling is also part of the program, including topics like home oxygen use, breathing retraining, stress management, home exercise and diet. Mary’s lung condition was not covered by her insurance, but a patient education grant from the Will Rogers Foundation made it possible for her to receive outpatient pulmonary rehab services at Parkwest. At her initial appointment, she received an overview of the pro-

session, which Mary says “wore me out,” she experienced a variety of exercises in the following weeks, progressing along with her improvement. A treadmill, a stationary bike, stairs and weights for curls and lifts all became part of the routine that guided her body back to breathing more easily. She began to see a difference, feel a difference and live again. “I can do things around the house I couldn’t do before,” Mary says with joy. “I can do all kinds of things I couldn’t do before.” But Mary will tell you pulmonary rehab didn’t just “fix” her.

I just hope if there are people out there, if they’re in my type of situation, that they’ll know they can get the best help right here. – Mary Eubanks

Over the past 14 years, the Will Rogers Institute has granted almost $2 million to the hospitals of Covenant Health and Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center. These grant funds support a variety of cardiopulmonary rehabilitation and health improvement initiatives, including a strong focus on smoking cessation. Covenant Health patients are qualified for funding from the Will Rogers Institute through Covenant’s cardiopulmonary rehabilitation programs. Each summer, movie theatres across the country participate in a fundraising campaign for the institute. Knoxville-based Regal Entertainment Group participates in the campaign, and because of their philanthropic leadership in the Patricia Neal Golf Classic, Regal helped develop the relationship between the Will Rogers Institute and Covenant Health. Now, thousands of cardiac and pulmonary patients have been impacted by their generosity.

keep herself out of the hospital for a very long time. Mary loved the way the experts at Parkwest Cardiopulmonary Wellness and Rehabilitation Center covered everything from proper diet to stress management and, of course, exercise. “You think if you get up and go to work it’s enough,” Mary says, “but it’s not. You have to exercise 30 minutes a day.” It’s just one of the many nuggets of wisdom Mary takes away from rehab. “I’ve learned so much,” Mary says. “Now I know what I need to do to keep myself healthy and stay out of the hospital.” But Mary says it wasn’t just the expertise of the medial professionals that helped her. It was the atmosphere and attitude. She describes the staff as making a difference by just being so “friendly and jovial,” and says there’s a camaraderie among patients that promotes a better outlook on life and hope for life after rehab. “I’m just so thankful to Parkwest, my physician, to Dr. Henschen, the Parkwest Cardio Pulmonary Wellness and Rehabilitation Center and the Will Rogers Institute,” says Mary. “I just hope if there are people out there, if they’re in my type of situation, that they’ll know they can get the best help right here,” Mary says emphatically. “I couldn’t have asked for better care – and coming from a retired nurse, that means something!” Individuals who have lung disease and are referred by their attending physician are eligible for this Phase II program. Phase II includes two sessions each week for 12-18 weeks. Most insurance companies cover cardiopulmonary rehab and nurse case managers help with insurance approval and billing concerns. If you think it might be right for you, talk to your doctor about a referral. For questions about Parkwest Cardiopulmonary Wellness and Rehabilitation Center, call 865-531-5570 or send an email to

What is COPD? Chronic Obstructive Pulmonary Disease (COPD) is the name for a group of progressive lung diseases, including bronchitis and emphysema, that make it difficult to breathe. It develops slowly and the symptoms can limit your activity, even to the point of making everyday things like walking hard to do. COPD usually includes emphysema and chronic bronchitis. The leading cause of COPD is smoking cigarettes, and the majority of people who have COPD either smoke or used to smoke. There are other contributing factors like longterm exposure to lung irritants such as pollution, chemical fumes or dust. When a person has COPD, it can mean several things are going on inside the lungs. Airways may have lost their elasticity, walls between air sacs may have been destroyed, the walls of the airways could be inflamed and too thick or there may be an abnormal amount of mucus, which can clog the airways. COPD brings on “flare-ups,” or ex-

acerbations. Coughing, wheezing, shortness of breath and chest tightness are all symptoms. COPD is currently the third leading cause of death in the United States. It’s also a major cause of disability and millions of people have been diagnosed with it.

Teachable moments Lately I’ve been “felled” by the same thing that’s got a lot of Knox Countians in its pernicious grasp – a bad cold of the sort that makes leaving one’s bed a bad idea for all concerned. While I haven’t been able to interview any interesting folks this week, I have been keeping up with the current school controversy. By now everyone knows about the recent school board meeting in which Knox County teachers voiced their frustrations and concerns. Here at the ShopperNews, Sandra Clark and Jake Mabe have been consistently supporting those educators for months now. I was particularly struck by the recent article, “Tenured and Tired,” in which Mabe spoke with a teacher who noticed her students’ lingering confusion about the correct use of apostrophes. God knows we need some clarification in that area. Where’s the millionaire who’ll give me a dollar for every sign I can find that uses an apostrophe incorrectly? The teacher, who spoke

Carol Zinavage

Carol’s Corner anonymously, said that she spotted “a teachable moment” and in other circumstances would have taken the time to veer off course a little in order to re-teach the difference between contractions and possessive nouns. But she’s bound by the new, rigid rules and was given, in Mabe’s words, “no wiggle room.” No wonder some of these capable veterans say that they sometimes come home in tears at the end of the day. It got me to thinking about my own teaching. In addition to writing a Shopper-News column, I also teach piano at The Community School of the Arts.

dents in her class can afford to follow the whims of each one (and I’d have no earthly idea how to manage and teach that many kids at once). Obviously there must be standards set and schedules observed. But it seems to me that there must be a happy medium. It seems to me that no “teachable moment” should be wasted. And the seasoned teachers – the ones with the education degrees, the experience and the know-how, who’ve given their lives to public education – are the ones who can spot them best.

So we spent the first part of his lesson doing just that. It wasn’t part of my original lesson plan, but it was the right thing to do. After 15 minutes or so, it was obvious that he understood those chords better than he ever had, and he’d contributed to the process himself. I thought of the teacher with no wiggle room. Of course, we’re talking about two different types of schools here. There’s no way a teacher with 30 stu-

health & lifestyles

Veterans take on new challenges later in life After Curby Thomas of Powell had a heart attack in 2002, he was referred to the Fort Sanders Cardiac Rehabilitation Outpatient Program for 13 weeks of exercise and nutrition classes under the watchful eye of nurses, dieticians and exercise specialists. Working out three times a week, Thomas regained his strength. Then he decided to keep going with exercise. Thomas joined Fort Sanders Cardiac Rehab on a monthly basis, like a health club. Now at 71, he visits several days each week to use the treadmill, weights and other equipment. “I’ve kept up a routine of walking and exercising, and it’s made a tremendous difference in the quality of my life. If you exercise you can live life. Or, you can just sit around and wait to croak, I guess!” Thomas said with a laugh. Like many cardiac patients, Thomas is a veteran. He served in the Army in 1959 to 1960. His heart problems were not related to his service, he said. However, many veterans do have heart and lung problems stemming from military service. “Many men in World War II were exposed to dangerous levels of asbestos. And during the Vietnam War, it was Agent Orange that may have affected their lungs,” said Rick Smith, a cardiovascular technologist at Fort Sanders. Smith is himself a former Army combat medic and National Guardsman.

Cardiovascular technologist Rick Smith talks to Zijad Dvzanic during his rehab session at Fort Sanders Cardiac Rehabilitation Outpatient Program. Smith said he sees military service related heart and lung diseases regularly. Asbestos was rampant in old Navy ships and shipyards. Agent Orange and other chemicals were used in Southeast Asia. And throughout the military, cigarette smoking was an encouraged habit (it is now discouraged). “Cigarettes used to come in the meal ration packs,” said Smith.

“The old adage was, ‘If you’ve got ’em, light ’em.’ ” For example, Harold Pruitt of Knoxville, 79 and a Navy veteran, exercises regularly at Fort Sanders. “I was exposed to asbestos, but I also smoked for 52 years,” he said. “I had a little trace of CPOD (chronic pulmonary obstructive disorder), and restless leg syndrome.”

Exercising at Fort Sanders has made a big difference in his health, Pruitt said. “It’s helped me quite a bit. I can walk better, breathe better and the doctor says my lungs are clear and free,” said Pruitt. Veterans and other patients often say they enjoy having nurses, physical therapists and dieticians nearby while they exercise, in case of emergency. “We exercise the patients, take

their blood pressure and watch them on heart monitors while exercising, taking them through different stations like the treadmill, the bicycles and weights for their upper body,” said Smith. Chuck Doherty of Knoxville, 86, said he’s glad Fort Sanders staff members are nearby while he exercises. “I think they’re doing a great job. I fell once on the treadmill, and they were there in a nanosecond. I’ve got to learn to keep awake on the treadmill,” he joked. Doherty said he was likely exposed to asbestos in the Navy years ago; however, his main heart issue is an irregular heartbeat. He began attending Fort Sanders Cardiac Rehab about four years ago. “I use the arm machines, the treadmills, the steps, weights, bicycles, everything. My wife tells me it’s keeping me alive,” Doherty said. “Whether you’re a veteran or not, you’ll get the most excellent care you could ever get at Fort Sanders,” said Smith. “Exercise helps stave off old age issues, arthritis and things like that. “Your mobility is better, your lung issues get better. You’re being watched by all these people, and we send reports to physicians. “We like to say we have smart, happy hearts and happy patients. Exercising at Fort Sanders helps our patients recognize what’s going on with their bodies. It also gives them a way to improve their health,” said Smith.

Exercise your heart at Fort Sanders Cardiac Rehab Center

Leaving the hospital is just the first step in recovering from a heart attack, heart surgery or angioplasty. Cardiac patients often need to strengthen weakened heart muscles and learn heart-healthy practices. Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center heart patients are referred to the hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Outpatient Program. The three-month program offers exercise sessions and health classes to establish lifestyle changes that help reduce the patient’s risk of further heart disease. “Cardiac Rehabilitation is a multidisciplinary treatment plan which involves medication, nursing, exercise physiology, nutrition and psychology. We know it’s difficult to make lifestyle changes, so we try to provide people support so they can change,” explains cardiac rehab nurse case manager Brenda Leuthold. Patients exercise three times each week while hooked to a heart monitor. They also attend different classes on nutrition, stress management and medications. “It’s long enough to help form healthy habits,” says Leuthold. After completing the rehab program, patients are invited back to the center to continue exercising. The center has exercise bikes, step machines, treadmills and free weights. “It’s a wonderful support group for anybody that’s had heart disease or heart procedures,” says Leuthold. “We have a lot of great outcomes.”

Get heart healthy! Physical exercise and a heart-healthy diet are keys to preventing and recovering from heart disease, according to the American Heart Association. Some more heart healthy recommendations: ■ ■ ■ ■

Don’t smoke Maintain a healthy weight Get daily moderate exercise Eat a healthy diet, low in saturated fats, processed sugar and sodium, and high in fiber ■ Eat five fruits and vegetables each day ■ Know your numbers for blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar, and manage high levels with medication if necessary
