STAR shines for kids East Tennessee Foundation helps therapeutic riding academy

Finding Davy Retiree spends week with Crockett

By Natalie Lester A recent $2,500 grant from the East Tennessee Foundation will cover the annual expenses of two students at the Shangri-La Therapeutic Academy of Riding (STAR). The grant is part of the foundation’s initiative to celebrate its 25th anniversary by giving $2,500 to a nonprofit in each of the 25 counties it serves. “We are giving gifts on our birthday,� said president and CEO Michael McClamroch. “A lot of nonprofits are doing great things but not many are greater than STAR.� STAR teaches individuals with disabilities to ride horses, which builds motor skills and self-esteem. Students pay for a third of the lessons’ cost, but the academy covers the rest. “It is up to us to make up the differ-

county. The proposal ignited a debate that lingered until the lease was extended in February 2009 under the same financial terms with Grace Healthcare taking over management of the facilities. Now, Mayor Tim Burchett’s office has included the nursing homes in a list of properties that could be sold to raise cash for a new elementary school in Carter. But is the mayor serious? Ragsdale’s offer to sell the properties to Hillcrest for $6 million quickly drew fire. Former Commissioner Paul Pinkston countered with a proposal to solicit bids with a minimum asking price of $22 million. The issue divided County Com-

mission. Mike Hammond said he’d received calls and emails asking the county not to balance the budget on “the backs of our sick and elderly.� Early in 2010, the debate flared again when Hillcrest West lost its Medicare and Medicaid certification, and questions about the county’s $1 per year lease resurfaced. One veteran of the nursing home industry said Hillcrest West might bring as much as $6 million in an outright sale, and a lease arrangement under a new provider could generate annual revenue of $700,000 or more for the county. Grace weathered that storm, but including the nursing homes on a list of potential property sales reopens the issue. When commission extended the lease in 2009, it approved an amendment that allows for early termination only “for cause.� The lease runs until 2016. What “cause� could the mayor cite at this date for terminating the lease? The school board’s attitude must also be considered. The vote to approve Burchett’s plan for Carter is likely to be close, and its members won’t look favorably on a plan that could put seniors at risk.

Burchett’s communications manager, Michael Grider, says the list of properties was compiled to show that the county could raise the money needed for the new school. To our specific question, Grider replied that (to his knowledge) “no one in the administration has discussed the possibility of selling the Hillcrest properties with Grace.� He added that the school board must approve the mayor’s plan for Carter, that County Commission must sign off on any proposed sale, and that no properties are currently for sale. Thus, the question: why include the nursing homes on a list that sooner or later will be made public

But the pastor’s 161 signatures on a petition opposing the applicant and the nerve-wracking sound effects were drowned out by a PSC representative’s statement that the company provided $8 million in wages and purchased $55 million in scrap metal in Knox County last year. And, said the applicant, you can trust us not to be like the noisy neighbor you’re dealing with now. Commissioner Rachel Craig picked out the fly in the ointment, saying she was concerned that – in effect – MPC was saying that because current uses conflict with the sector plan the sector plan must be wrong. Only Stan Johnson agreed with her reasoning, and the applicant prevailed 11-2.

lot will be “screened, no fumes and little noise.� White’s sound effects were of the fingernails on the blackboard variety, but Brabson made the most impassioned pleas to keep PSC out. “Our church is a seven day a week church,� he said, adding that he’d like to see compliance with what the current zoning requires in order to restore “peace and tranquility in our neighborhood.� His point: the current metal recycling operation is operating in violation of the existing zoning. Brabson later argued that, “in layperson terms,� if a person is driving 75 mph in a 50 mph zone, the fi x is not to raise the speed limit to 75.

unless the facilities are serious candidates for sale to the highest bidder? One reason could be to inflate the total value of properties on the list. Hillcrest North was appraised for $8.5 million in 2007, a substantial piece of the $19.3 million total for which the mayor’s office provided appraised values. But the most likely explanation is that someone was asleep. Just putting the facilities on the list might cook up a stew the mayor would choke on. Burchett isn’t seriously considering selling the nursing homes to build an elementary school. But somebody on the sixth floor needs to get serious about the details.

Rotary talks fundraising

As another financial year begins, the Farragut Rotary received free advice from fundraising coach Sandy Rees, who has helped area nonprofits raise income and also authored the book “Fundraising Buffet.” “Fundraising is one of those things everyone cringes at,” she said. “Most people would rather have their fingernails pulled out than talk about money with anyone.” She encouraged Rotarians to utilize transformational fundraising, which would build relationships with donors, rather than asking for a one-time gift. “When you create those types of bonds, you have a group of people to pull from for all types of support,” she said. “Find people who care about your cause and keep your passion. When we are

Her recommendations included focusing on the donor, publicity and maintaining connection with givers through newsletters and “thank you” notes.

Even editors have friends It’s said there are cat people and there are dog people. I ran with the canine crowd until 15 years ago when my wife – one of the cat people – “adopted” Hobbes from a family in Karns. At first I wasn’t impressed. Not long past weaning, Hobbes was more fur than substance, and as he matured his black hair grew so long you weren’t sure there was a cat under there until you saw his eyes. For more than 15 years Hobbes claimed his small territory in our neighborhood, making friends just about everywhere he visited. He was a genuine “people cat,” and if you were human you were a potential buddy. Several summers ago we took pity on him under all that fur in the sweltering Hobbes heat and decided he might appreciate a haircut. Hobbes emerged from the vet’s office with the neighborhood’s only feline poodle cut, definitely a cooler cat, but perhaps a little embarrassed about showing all that naked skin. After that we decided to let nature take its course. Hobbes was a bird chaser, not so much of a bird catcher, for which we were grateful. One day he came to the front door with a dove sandwiched precariously between his jaws. As he opened his mouth to brag about his catch, the dove flew away to share the tale of his harrowing escape with his dove pals. Hobbes began slowing down several months ago. As much as he loved the outdoors, he restricted his wandering to a leisurely stroll to our neighbor’s yard. There he would scoot under her deck and wait out the heat of the day before coming in for the evening. Always a hearty eater, Hobbes began refusing food last week and holed up in our bedroom closet, coming out occasionally for water and the call of nature. Last Monday evening I carried him into our backyard where we sat and communed in the shade of the big maple tree he knew so well. Tuesday morning the vet gently assisted him into that long sleep. I miss Hobbes. Even crusty old editors have friends. Contact Larry Van Guilder at

Last week Powell Auction handled the sale of Ol’ Stinky, and county officials said the company got a 3 percent buyer’s premium ($60,000) paid by NRR. For this it absorbed expenses associated with the auction (about $7,000) and risked a loss if the sale does not close. ■ Not a bad “Return on Bologna,” Howard! ■ Julia Hurley carved on her desk during a lull in the legislative session, but what did the freshman state rep say?

greenwaste facility on Joe Daniels Road will soon have a new owner. Sid Brian’s company, Natural Resources Recovery, bid $2 million for the 159-acre tract in a brief but spirited auction last week. The sale kills two birds for Knox County. The proceeds will probably be the first to go toward the $13.8 million cost of a new elementary school in Carter. Selling to NRR, the current tenant, is also the last step in getting the county out of the mulch business, a move many feel is overdue. A mix of about 30 spectators, bidders and media types showed up for the auction. Afterwards, PR guy Mike Cohen issued a statement on behalf of NRR. Besides noting that the company was “delighted” to win the auction, it read: “We also look forward to a new era where we operate in a totally free enterprise environment.” That’s a mouthful. NRR’s relationship with Knox County was criticized early on for stifl ing free enterprise. The critic, Brad Mayes, was on hand and

who inherited a nightmare of questionable management practices from his predecessor. The Mayes-Salter clash has taken on comic opera dimensions with allegations and counter allegations that include spying, character assassination and (seriously) the use of voodoo dolls. Severing the solid waste department’s connection to NRR may not put an end to the lawsuits, but it should curtail adding fuel to the fire. Mayor Tim Burchett read the sale as a sign that “despite the economy, businesses are willing to invest in Knox County,” adding that it reduces the “the footprint of government.” But you wonder how things might have turned out differently.

Haslam family backs Padgett The city mayoral campaign financial disclosures are a treasure trove of information which generates all sorts of speculation and comment.

the mayor’s race, he has a great future as a private fundraiser for virtually any worthwhile cause. He has raised $270,000 and has $170,000 on hand while Madeline Rogero has raised $160,000 and has roughly $87,000 (or half of Padgett’s total) on hand. Ivan Harmon lags far behind, while the final two mayoral candidates are almost penniless when it comes to campaign funds. The one-day media attention focused on the Governor’s brother and sister donating $3,000 total to Padgett, a Democrat, while Rogero, also a Democrat,

responded by publicly stating in a Georgiana Vines column on July 9 that Jimmy Haslam had promised to remain neutral but then donated to her rival. Without directly using the “L” word, she effectively accused Haslam of going back on his word. Why she attacked the Governor’s brother mystifies me. Even if he said what she claims, he is a city resident who has every right to support whomever he wants and to change his mind. The entire Haslam family are city voters. Attacks like this may only cause Jimmy Haslam to redouble efforts to raise even more money for Padgett. Perhaps Rogero felt that almost four years working for Mayor Bill Haslam should have earned her some points with other members of the family. At the time of the appointment it was

widely praised as an example of former opponents reconciling and Haslam bringing diverse elements into his administration. Rogero is generally credited with performing well as a city director. Harmon was also working for the city at the same time. However, the current disclosure makes it clear that much of the Haslam family is in the Padgett camp. On the other side of the ledger, Larry Martin, retired banker and a favorite of the business community who runs the dayto-day operations of the city, has donated $500 to Rogero, as did Bill Lyons, who assists Martin in running the city. So while the bulk of the business community which writes campaign checks are sending them to Padgett, two close Haslam confidants from his days as mayor are backing Rogero. One assumes they feel

her record merits promotion to mayor over Padgett who has met with both Martin and Lyons. It is intriguing that the two Democrats in the mayoral race are the leading campaign donation recipients while Harmon, the Republican running, is a distant third. However, the Harmon strategy is based in part on the two Democrats fighting it out with each other while he gathers Republican Party voters to his column to secure a spot in the city runoff with either Padgett or Rogero. Then he assumes the Democrat who does not make the runoff is sufficiently unhappy with the winning Democrat to remain neutral in the Nov. 8 runoff. This scenario is certainly possible as Harmon is a very likeable, hard working, door-todoor candidate. The state Senate Republican primary held also Sept. 27 will bring extra Republican voters into the city nonpartisan primary which could benefit Harmon.


West Knox Republicans take the cake


By Wendy Smith The primaries are only a little more than two months away, but it wasn’t the heat of the races that threatened to melt the desserts donated to the West Knox Republican Club cake auction. The high temperatures came courtesy of broken air conditioning at the Deane Hill Recreation Center, where the annual event was held last week. But checkbooks were brought out in spite of stifling heat to support the club and its candidates. The auction typically raises around $1,000, said club president John Gabriel. The community was invited to attend the event and partake of free barbecue catered by Rothchild, and candidates were encouraged to donate baked goods to the auction. Some busy office-seekers chose to purchase their donations rather than spend time in the kitchen. Mayoral candidate Mark Padgett opted to bring a five-layer pound cake from Ham and Goody’s. His decision was based on concern for the health of voters, he said. He left the auction early in order to spend some time knocking on doors and didn’t purchase a cake himself. “I’m a fiscal conservative,” he explained. Gary Loe wasn’t bothered by the fact that the dessert

West Knox Republican Club president John Gabriel bids on the dessert he’s holding while John Griess serves as auctioneer during the club’s annual cake auction. Photo by Wendy Smith he purchased, a chocolate cake donated by General Sessions Judge Geoff Emery, bore a Food City label. The judge has promised to get back to him with the recipe, Loe says. State Senate candidate Becky Duncan Massey, on the other hand, thinks cakes made from scratch are more meaningful. She made an Italian cream cake, which was snatched off the auction block by club treasurer Christy Gabriel. Massey’s opponent, Marilyn Roddy, donated a cake baked by an enthusiastic supporter. Her daughter, McKenzie, baked a cake with layers that resemble the American flag when cut. Ron Leadbetter, who was

focused on his campaign for state Senate last year, was free to peruse the assortment of sweets at this year’s event. He had his eye on a chocolate raspberry layer cake baked by City Council candidate Ron Peabody. John Gabriel set his sights on the same dessert, and bidding was back and forth between the two until attorney Chad Tindell stole the prize with a $45 bid. (Tindell admitted later that he didn’t even know which cake he was bidding on.) Leadbetter consoled himself by purchasing elephantshaped cookies baked by Allison Burchett. Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones and Register of Deeds Sherry Witt were thinking only of others when they

each purchased two desserts. Jones said he’d take the items to the office but wouldn’t indulge himself. Witt said she would also share her bounty with coworkers – unless she decided to keep one for herself. The city of Knoxville primary is Sept. 27. The general election is Nov. 8.

Actor Fess Parker, who played Davy Crockett in the famous “Disneyland” TV show episodes from 1954-55, made a stop at the old Princess Theatre in Morristown on May 29, 1955, to promote the theatrical version of the TV series.

In the footsteps of Davy Crockett Retiree spends week hunting historic sites


ORRISTOWN – One week removed from retirement, Jack Ferguson was free as a bird. Jack is a history buff. (He says he and his wife met at a Civil War reenactment.) And he likes to camp. So, when the Salem, Va., native shed the shackles of labor for good, his wife said, “Go follow Davy Crockett for a week.” And it was here I found him, camera dangling around his neck, talking to site director Sally Baker at the Crockett Tavern in Morristown. You gotta understand one thing up front. This is not the real tavern in which Crockett grew up. Sally, who has worked here for 18 years, was telling Jack that the original burned years ago, although it did serve as a field hospital during the Civil War. No one is even sure when Davy Crockett’s

parents, John and Rebecca, left the place. John is lost to history; Rebecca met her final days at Davy’s last home, in Rutherford, Tenn. But it sat just behind the present location of the tavern. When the city of Morristown had money left over from its centennial celebration in 1955, it was earmarked to reconstruct the tavern as a Crockett museum. The current incarnation of the Crockett Tavern opened in April 1958. John and Rebecca Crockett opened the tavern around 1792. It was located on the road that had been laid out from James White’s Fort in Knoxville to Abingdon, Va. Breakfast and supper cost 9 cents. Dinner was 10 cents. Lodging was 6 cents, as were a variety of spirits, corn and oats, and hay and fodder for one’s horse. “So you could stay here and

have your horse taken care of for about a quarter, which was a lot of money then,” Sally says. The tavern was a lifesaver for John Crockett, who’d been in debt for some time. “They were destitute when they arrived here,” Sally says. One of young Davy’s duties was to hunt and kill game for the dinner table. The museum is quite a bit larger than the original tavern is believed to have been. Sally says it was basically as big as the current tavern’s entrance room and that a ladder would have stretched upstairs to the lodgers’ loft. Women travelers would have been a rare sight in the late 1700s and early 1800s. But, if they were present, male lodgers would sleep on the floor. Hanging on the wall of the modern-day tavern is an autographed

ing out at it in the early morning sun, reveling in the shadows that stretch westward from each row. I study it in the moonlight from a window in my bedroom, the stars wheeling above it. That is usually when I start humming the English folk song quoted above. It is one I learned when I taught grade school music for two years in an inner city school in Knoxville. It was in the 3rd grade music book, and I am pretty sure that most of the children who sang it with me had never seen a hayfield, or a meadow, and, what’s more, wouldn’t be much impressed if they did. That simple song stuck with me, perhaps because of its gentle lilt (it is in 6/8 time, so it dances a bit), and because it is a “cumulative song,” like “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” You can keep adding to the number of men working in the song (“Three

But I think the reason I love it so, and sing it again whenever I see harvest taking place, is that the song acknowledges the worth of the land, the value of the farmer’s labor, the goodness of the “gold” that is being gathered together. It speaks of the camaraderie of shared effort, the value of work and sweat, and the gifts that the earth gives to us in exchange for our labor. The boundless grace of God never ceases to amaze me. Even though the Genesis story tells us that work is our punishment for that mess that took place in the Garden of Eden, I am grateful that God allows us to enjoy the beauty of this world, to understand the meaning of our work and to participate in the ongoing creation of God’s bounty.

Kelley comes to play | Sandra Clark


hat possesses a person to give up everything to follow a dream? Not sure? This question is easier. Why does the spouse hand over his business to a buddy and come along? Let’s call it love. Kelley McRae and Matt Castelein were in Knoxville this month. They played at the WDVX Blue Plate Special on a Friday and then spent Saturday evening playing at the Cove in Concord Park. It’s a Kelley McRae free concert sponsored by Knox County Parks and Recreation. Kelley, 31, and Matt, 34, are touring the country in a VW Camper Van named Proc Ne, Czech for “Why Not?” During an intermission, Matt said he’s singing backup only because “Kelley couldn’t afford to bring her band.” But hey, he’s really pretty good. The VW was parked nearby, decorated with posters for tour sponsor True Lemon, a natural citrus product crystallized for easy storage and used for water, teas and recipes. Matt operated a metal shop in Brooklyn, producing props for Broadway and off-Broadway shows. It’s a “turbulent business” that slows during the summer, he

said. So he felt OK to leave it with a friend. He left New York with ambivalence, not sure whether he and Kelley will return. “It’s fun to work hard at your own things,” he said. They’re headed for the West Coast and, hopefully, a solid music career for Kelley McRae. Before they left, a friend gave them a flip camera and they’re blogging their journey. A typical comment: (Holy crap, I’ve been living in a van for four months!) Kelley’s Knoxville connection is that her dad, John McRae, is the Dean of the College of Architecture at UT. Both parents were present at the Cove concert and her mom, Sharon, even requested a song: “Break Us (By the Power of your Grace).” Kelley said requests from her mom are not to be ignored.

Kelley grew up in Mississippi and has spent her life in music, Matt said.

players (including Jack Stroud) from the ’50 squad but the returnees knew the feeling of greatness, what it took to get there and what it would take to stay. Blocking and tackling were the basics. Think Jim Haslam and Pug Pearman. Neyland, borderline genius in psychology, told the players they should ignore preseason praise, throw away press clippings, and duck and run when fans tried to pat them on the back. As was his custom, he mentioned the maxims and probably went over them again if anybody yawned. The schedule was neatly arranged. Chattanooga was in front of Alabama and Tennessee Tech behind the Tide. Washington and Lee was the setup game before Ole Miss. Keep in mind that I, as a university freshman, saw the home games and the maxims in action. Mississippi State mistakes led to two Tennessee touchdowns in the first quarter. The next three were neareven. Blocking back Jimmy Hahn (Jacobs Trophy as best blocker in the SEC) explained that the General never wanted to run up the score. Duke shot itself in the foot. Duke fumbled. Duke didn’t pick up a kickoff. Duke fumbled again and lost two interceptions. Duke lost the game by four touchdowns.

Thank You! 30 years!

Many missed Chattanooga and Tennessee Polytechnic Institute. I didn’t. As for not running up the score, TPI lost by 68. This reunion will undoubtedly concentrate on the victory over Alabama, how Gordon Polofsky knocked the ball loose and recovered, how Lauricella quick-kicked to the Tide 4, how ironic it was that Lauricella ran for 108 yards and passed for 108 yards. The 28-0 triumph at Kentucky is worth several replays. The Wildcats were good but this was the 16th consecutive year without a blue victory in what was supposed to be a border rivalry. It was the third consecutive shutout over All-American QB Babe Parilli. Coach Paul Bryant said darn. For some strange reason, Lexington was the mountaintop. The ’51 Vols gave up 251 passing yards and narrowly nipped Vanderbilt in Knoxville. The perfect year ended in an upset loss to Maryland in the Sugar Bowl. Ex-Vol Denver Crawford helped scheme the Terps’ decisive defense, an overload to the strong side. The game was not as close as 28-13 indicated. The Vols gained only 81 yards. They’ll do much better at the reunion. Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is

Touring the

Knoxville Zoo And eating ice cream with the turkeys … er, interns By Sara Barrett One of the best things about touring the Knoxville Zoo last week was the

complete indifference of the creatures we visited to the scorching heat surrounding them. Tina Rolen graciously took us through several animal habitats and reptile exhibits, and showed us cool places when the heat became too much. After stretching our legs

around the park, we kicked back at the snack stand near the beavers to have ice cream and soft drinks, right next to a pen of turkeys enjoying the afternoon shade. Many thanks to those at the zoo who made our day great … Patches, Lucy, Buttercup, Tallulah and the gang.

Giraffes and snakes and alligators … oh my! By Madeline Lonas What do you get when you combine a giraffe, a snake, an alligator and the Shopper-News interns? You get a hot, H-O-T summer day at the Knoxville Zoo! After arming us with water bottles, Tina Rolen led us to our first stop at the giraffe house. Everyone knows that a giraffe is tall, but just imagine standing beside one looking straight up. If you think a teenager’s mouth never stops moving, you should hang out with a giraffe. They are not talking, but eating, drinking and just moving their mouths. The pattern of a giraffe’s coat is called “reticulated.” No two giraffes have the same markings. We also found out it’s rough being a newborn giraffe calf. Their mothers give birth standing up. Imagine the sound of a 6-foot tall calf weighing 150 pounds dropping from its mother. Zoo

After seeing Buttercup and Tallulah, the interns headed to other popular sights in the zoo, including the petting zoo, turtle and bird exhibits, and the nocturnal animal center. Tina Rolen explained that

Intern Jacob Mullins’ favorite quote came from the zoo’s executive director of marketing, Tina Rolen. “When people call in looking for a job at the zoo they say, ‘I’ll even scoop poop.’ Well, that is the job,” she said. Photo by Jenna Kalmon

‘Money quotes’ Jacob Mullins: “When people call in looking for a job at the zoo they say ‘I’ll even scoop poop.’ Well, that is your job,” Tina Rolen said. Tallulah, the albino American alligator, basks on a rock. “Many people will ask if she’s fake, but she’s not,” said Brad Moxley, because of the reptile’s unusual appearance. Photo by Owen Sanders keeper Bill Garrison said it’s “like a wet bag of cement.” After visiting giraffes Lucy and Patches, Rolen took us to the other side of the zoo to meet Buttercup, the python currently on exhibit. Buttercup is 23 feet long and weighs 200 pounds. Like the giraffe, she also has reticulated markings. Finally, off to meet Tallulah, the albino American alligator. Tallulah looked as if

she was made out of plastic or even wax. Her eyes were my favorite color, pink. We were very lucky to see this reptile – being albino in the wild is very dangerous. There is no camouflage, so living in the zoo keeps her safe. Buttercup and Tallulah will be at the zoo through Labor Day. (With an assist from Tia Kalmon and S. Barrett)

‘Monkey-ing’ around By Elizabeth Longmire

Reticulated python Buttercup greets the group at the reptile exhibit, showing immediately who’s boss (as if there were any doubt in our minds). The money quote comes from intern Leo Coppock-Seal, who heard zoo keeper Brad Moxley say, “Buttercup is as big as a basketball.”

the Knoxville Zoo has more than 800 animal residents. What an interesting experience we had. Most people wouldn’t have had the opportunity to hang out with the giraffes or be up close and personal with the largest snake in captivity.

Though the day was scorching hot and we interns were swimming in sweat, (gross, I know) it turned out to be a day filled with exploration and “monkey-ing” around. (With an assist from Tia Kalmon and S. Barrett)

Helpful Hints For Internet Use For Pet Parents The internet can be a great tool to get a lot of information for your pet but be very cautious about what sites you use to get your information. Not all sites have correct information and most do not have a veterinarian to check what information is posted to the website. Just because they have a television show or breed dogs or have an internet site, doesn’t make them an animal health expert. Many websites have another agenda which can lead you astray; many are trying to sell you a product. Here are a few websites that are supervised by veterinarians but are geared toward providing information for the pet owner: These websites contain information for most any questions or conditions your pet may have, such as: behavior, drugs and drug interactions, diseases and their complications, and informative videos on how to give oral medications or injections. Many times we all look to the internet for information. Whether it be because you just got your new kitten or puppy and haven’t established a relationship with your vet yet or received a devastating diagnosis from your pet’s doctor and are too upset to think straight to ask the right questions until you are at home and trying to explain it to your non-furry loved ones, but the internet isn’t the only place to look for the help you need. The most important thing you can do for your pet is to establish a good relationship with their veterinarian. We can help you weed out the incorrect or useless information and can give you the correct information or guide you to useful websites that will give you more information. ALWAYS talk to your vet prior to starting any new regiment. We are happy to help you understand all aspects of your pet’s health or sickness because the more you know, the better care you are able to give your pet and a healthy, happy pet is everybody’s goal. Veterinarians are the animal health experts for everything from routine wellness exam and vaccines to behavior to cancer; if your vet doesn’t know the answer, he/she will be able to direct you to another expert that can. Use the internet but use it cautiously and always discuss the information you found with your veterinarian prior to deviating from his/her recommendation. We are always willing to work with you to find the best plan for both you and your furry family. Kristy Greene, DVM and staff.

The Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen discussed overcrowding at the Knox Area Transit Park and Ride Lot on Campbell Station Road during its workshop last Thursday but, in the absence of Mayor Ralph McGill, didn’t reach a conclusion. The lot is used for both the KAT program and carpoolers. According to bus riders, the lot is overcrowded on a daily basis. “I think those who are using it for the KAT service are seeing an issue with the congestion, but those who are utilizing it for the carpooling do not see that problem,� associate town administrator Gary Palmer said. “In the past we have talked about expanding it and got

Now that prices are back up, we’re seeing it become an issue again.� Mark Calvert, who lives in Farragut but works downtown, rides the bus every day. However, he and his fellow riders struggle to find a spot to park. He said he has seen several potential riders leave because they cannot find a place to park. The bus riders developed a list of possible solutions, including signs designating which spaces are for the KAT service and which can be used by carpoolers. “It would be hard to monitor, because you would be depending on the good faith of people to follow the signs,� Calvert said. He also suggested moving one group to an alternate location, and some Board members agreed that was the best solution. “I’d like to see the town look for alternate spots,� said Alderman Ron Honken. “It’s not like we’re hurting for spots, we just don’t have them in the right space.� “There are a lot of spots in a prime location,� added Al-

derman Bob Markli. “There are lots of people who may jump at the opportunity to have their vacant property used.â€? In their workshop session, the Board also discussed the town’s entrance to the federal Social Security system. Town administrator David Smoak explained two ways to enter the system: through the majority referendum process or the divided referendum process. The majority process would require a secret ballot survey of the staff, and the majority vote would determine if all positions joined or stayed out. In the divided process, employees would be able to decide individually whether they enter the program. Smoak encouraged the Board to recommend which the town should use so he could draft a resolution to be sent to the Social Security Administration. The Board agreed the majority process seems best. “Either we’re in or we’re not,â€? Markli said. “It’s going to be a real headache if we don’t have everyone in.â€? In other action, the Board approved a request to close Herron Road adjacent to Buddy Gregg Motor Homes. It also amended the Farragut Zoning Ordinance on first reading to allow a motorized wakeboard cable system on the pond at Wild Wings CafĂŠ.

Inky's book signing

Chuck Jones honored with road naming

Former Tennessee Volunteer football player and current Kansas City Chiefs safety Eric Berry will join former Tennessee Volunteer football player Inky Johnson 5-7 p.m. Monday, July 18, at the Kroger in Farragut for a signing of Johnson’s book “Inky Johnson: An Amazing Story of Faith and Perserverance�.

Chuck Jones, 82, (at right) longtime veteran services officer for Knox County, was honored Friday as the former Dade Drive was renamed for him. The street in northwest Knox County is located near the Ben Atchley State Veteran’s Home. Mayor Tim Burchett said, “Over the years, Chuck has worked hard to see that Knox County’s veterans and their families have access to the benefits they have earned by serving to protect our freedom.� Jones enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1944, near the end of World War II, and was pressed into service as a cook when he was just 16. He served during both WWII and the Korean War, and he spent time aboard Navy submarines. He retired from the Navy in 1965 as a chief petty officer. “I chose to serve this country because I value freedom, not to get a pat on the back. It is a pleasure to continue serving Knox County’s veterans as long as I can,� Jones said.

Two new degrees King College launches programs for adults By Sandra Clark King College is adding two new bachelor’s degrees to the program offered at the Knox County campus, 10950 Spring Bluff Way across Hardin Valley Road from PellisCrews sippi State Community College. Degrees in communications and psychology were introduced last Thursday at an open house. Both will be offered this fall with classes starting Monday, Aug. 29. Micah Crews, associate vice president of enrollment management, said the college’s Graduate and Professional Studies (GPS)

program is an excellent way for those with an associate degree to transition to a bachelor’s degree. “Wherever you are, we’ll meet you there,� is more than a slogan, Crews said. “Time and access are often barriers for students to finish their degrees. By offering classes in convenient locations, one night per week, the working adult may obtain a degree in as little as 16 months and open the door for professional advancement.� Mona Salyer, director of recruitment for the GPS program, said King is making it easier for working adults to obtain their degree. Crews is himself a graduate of King College (Class of ’98). “I wanted a place where I could be taught and treated as an individual, not a number,� he said. The Atlanta native felt at home on the Bristol campus of King College where he studied “oneon-one with highly intelligent

Area teens give back, explore healthcare by volunteering at Parkwest Fourteen area high school students have traded sleeping in this summer to help others by volunteering at Parkwest Medical Center. “Our junior volunteer program provides students a ďŹ rst-hand experience in healthcare – a profession that interests many of them as a possible career path,â€? said Volunteer Services Coordinator Becky Boyd. “Their energy, enthusiasm and willingness to learn are simply contagious.â€? While many teens spend summer days at camp or by the pool, Parkwest’s Junior Volunteers are united by a sense of service. “When they came to get their name badges, I could feel how full of life they are,â€? said Kimberly Mialback-Houk who works in Human Resources. “They have such great potential with their whole lives in front of them. I enjoy being a part of their journey.â€? Alexis Hamilton, a rising senior at Catholic High School, is volunteering at Parkwest for her third consecutive summer. “I enjoy it because I like helping others,â€? said Hamilton, whose father is a physician. “It also helps me learn more about myself and what professions I may want to pursue.â€? Hamilton was able to attend a professional luncheon on crisis communications, a non-clinical job that is important in the healthcare industry but not one that typically comes to mind. In addition to the patient-focused jobs, Parkwest also has approximately 200 employees working in support services such as admissions, accounting, human resources, materials management and marketing. Basma Ouddi will be a sophomore at Bearden High School. This is her ďŹ rst year volunteering at Parkwest, and she already knows that she wants to pursue the ďŹ eld of healthcare. “Everyone I have met has been so nice and patient with me,â€? said Ouddi. “I’m glad I have had the opportunity to explore it ďŹ rst-hand.â€? Sam DeFord is a rising junior at Lenoir City High School and runs cross-country when he’s not in the classroom. Shortly into his volunteer role, a patient called him “Prince Harry,â€? pointing out his resemblances to a member of the Royal Family. Now, it’s a nickname that others throughout the hospital know him by. “I’ve really enjoyed meeting new people and getting a chance to learn while doing it,â€? said DeFord. “I assisted in patient rooms on my ďŹ rst day.â€? Although DeFord is not a prince, he is president of his student body and a member of Health Occupational Students of America (HOSA), a national career and technical student organization endorsed by the U.S. Department of Education which works as a resource to students looking to pursue the health ďŹ eld professionally. At 15, Jessica Burnette has already experienced more health-

She credits the junior volunteer program for teaching her how to communicate professionally. “My experience has ignited a passion in me to make a difference,� said Burnette. Tony Metheny, a rising junior from Roane County High School,

has the longest commute to volunteer at Parkwest; however, he gets to carpool with family members who work at Parkwest. One Tony Metheny helping Tom Pappas - the oldest volunteer at Parkwest in Maof Metheny’s first assignments terials Management. was working materials management where he had the opportunity to work with Parkwest’s oldest volunteer, 89-year-old Tom Pappas. Junior volunteers help in a wide variety of jobs throughout the hospital, including escorting patients and family members, delivering owers, assembling information packets and helping out in the gift shop. You can also ďŹ nd them conducting surveys and assisting in patient rooms by making beds or reďŹ lling ice buckets. “I’m glad that we are able to make an impact on another generation in hopes of growing the healthcare industry that is so close Sam DeFord and Basma Ouddi with Parkwest Risk Manager Linda Tillman. to our hearts,â€? said Boyd.

       Parkwest Medical Center is seeking people who enjoy helping others to join its current network of more than 150 volunteers.

Babaji Spina from the Kashi Center for Advanced Spiritual Studies in Florida will be returning to the Knoxville area for the fourth consecutive year. Migun TN and Integrative Synergy, LLC are pleased to host him this year. In January 2011 Babaji felt intense pressure and pain in his chest. Realizing he was having a heart attack, Babaji prayed and did what he does best… started breathing. He attributes his breathing practice as one of the key factors in surviving that experience. After a quadruple bypass in January and a carotid surgery last May, he is even more passionate about sharing his breathwork practices to those with health issues, especially those with breathing and heart concerns. His new DVD, filmed last year in Knoxville, will be released this August. He wanted it to be available to his students in Tennessee, as a way of showing his appreciation and gratitude to them.

Cityscape on Gallaher View When the Plantation Manor apartments on North Gallaher View Road came under new ownership last April, the complex was re-named Manor View Apartments. For years a 9-foot high, 85foot long concrete retaining wall with the apartment name on it had marked the entrance. It wasn’t a very pretty sight. Actually, it was just plain ugly. The complex itself is attractive. It sits on a heavily wooded hillside and is nicely landscaped throughout. But the wall was blight both for residents and for the thousands of passersby who travel Gallaher View daily. The new owners, Chartwell Management, decided to do something about that, and Manor View manager Cory George set about

Her

paintings were on display in Regas restaurant, and she has painted murals in churches, doctors’ offices and private homes. She also does commission work on canvas of people, pets and houses, but best loves painting landscapes, seascapes and skylines. The mural she is working on now, a collage of the skyline of downtown Knoxville, is far from complete, as the accompanying photograph indicates. At the far right end, she has started painting mountains, and will add some dogwood trees and a glimpse of UT’s Neyland Stadium. She is also going to incorporate the Tennessee Theatre sign, and still has to add windows to the many buildings shown here and

Dawn says working in such a public setting as the Gallaher Road location has its rewards. “People stop and ask questions and tell me how much they like the mural.” It also has had some surprises, like the fellow who showed up ready to paint. She had to talk him out of that idea. She does have a couple of helpers, but Kristen Bowman and Karlee Contois are also mural artists. Artistic talent apparently runs in the family.

By Sandra Clark Businesses have a tangible, low-cost way to help Knox County Schools. The Knox County Schools/PTA Teacher Supply Depot will open soon after school resumes, dispersing supplies to teachers. The Depot has boomed after moving to the former Cedar Bluff Intermediate School. But after three successful openings last year, resources are low. So Scott Bacon, Cindy Britton and the folks at the Depot have issued a call for help. Items needed include art sup- Cindy Britton sorts through bulletin plies, bulletin board materials, cal- board donations at the Teacher Supculators, writing utensils, erasers, ply Depot. Photo by N. Lester

children’s games, holiday decorations, fi le folders, markers, poster board, tape, rulers, staples, copy paper and a variety of other classroom supplies and materials. The Depot also needs items that are often thrown away, such as baby food jars, Pringles cans, coffee cans, T-shirts (all sizes) and old toys in good condition. Since its opening in January 2001, more than 6,000 Knox County educators have received an estimated $2.2 million worth of materials that were made possible through the support of businesses and community members. The Depot accepts donations

year-round, but opens on limited dates throughout the school year. Teachers come and get materials without charge. This year’s first opening is set for Saturday, Aug. 13. Donations can be dropped off 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Monday through Friday or by calling 470-0750. Pick-up for larger donations can be arranged by calling Scott Bacon, Knox County Schools Supervisor of Business Partnerships, at 594-1909. So look around. If you’ve got outof-date letterhead or surplus promotional materials, give a call. All donations are used for the benefit of Knox County students. Info: www.

Campaigning in ‘the hills’ Ivan Harmon and his volunteer coordinator, McCalla Kuhlman, left, greet Barbara Pelot at Long’s Drug Store before attending a mayoral candidate forum at the Baptist Community Center. Harmon says elections are decided by the “silent majority,” so it’s hard to know how people will vote. But he’s actively campaigning in “the hills” – Rocky Hill, Deane Hill, Sequoyah Hills and West Hills. “I’ve won seven times in city elections, and a lot of people know me. I just need to take that group and add to it,” he says.

She will soon move to Mount Carmel in upper East Tennessee to live with her daughter, but her friend and fellow bowler Melba Morrison couldn’t let her leave town without breakfast at Long’s. Morton, who is 78, has a bowling average of 161. “It’s excellent exercise for seniors,” says Morrison. Photos by Wendy Smith

A faithful ‘Long and Short’ fan Barbara Pelot says hello to Ella Snavely, who looked after Pelot’s four children at Concord United Methodist Church when they were youngsters. Snavely is an avid reader of Long & Short. “I always look at that page first to see who’s in there.”

I’m always glad when I have the opportunity to share good news, and today I’m happy to share some excellent news about KCDC resident and Fulton High School graduate Taylor Andrea Holdren. Taylor is Holdren one of only seven students statewide – and the only student from East Tennessee – to receive a Tennessee Association of Housing and Redevelopment Authorities (TAHRA) scholarship. Each year, TAHRA awards seven scholarships statewide to residents in good standing in public housing or Section 8 housing. I understand that the competition for this scholarship is intense, and earning the award is no small feat. The scholarship provides $2,500 annually as long as the recipient maintains his or her grades. Considering Taylor’s work ethic, I have every confidence that she will maintain her grades and keep the scholarship. Taylor graduated third in her class of 240 with a GPA of 3.8. Even more impressive, she did so while participating in many extracurricular activities. She was yearbook editor, a varsity cheerleader and a member of Health Occupations Students of America (HOSA). She was inducted into the National Honor Society and honored as a News Sentinel Academic Achiever. Terreka HollowaySmith, college access coordinator for Project GRAD Knoxville, says that Taylor was one of the easiest students she ever had the pleasure of working with. Speaking of her prized pupil, Holloway said, “She stays on top of it. She has a twin brother who is also very bright, and she helped me keep after him, too.” Taylor will go to UT Knoxville, where she plans to major in psychology. My KCDC colleagues and I are very proud of Taylor and her dedication that led to this award. We wish her the best in her future academic endeavors.

By Sandra Clark The professional staff at Wellness Center at Dowell Springs will unveil details today (July 18) of a comprehensive program called LiveWELL. Free informational sessions are set for 10 a.m. and 5:30 p.m. LiveWELL combines ďŹ tness, nutrition and stress management to help participants achieve a balanced, healthy lifestyle. The program will launch in August. “What is our goal?â€? asked exercise specialist Mike Wigger. “Simple. Our goal is to help you meet yours. “We’ll help you develop your goals through your own ‘why are you here?’ statement. You’ll learn to forecast obstacles, identify triggers and develop action plans to meet your goals.â€? It’s a long-term approach, said chief dietitian Casey Peer. “Once we know your goals, we introduce tools to help you reach them.â€? With weight loss, for instance, LiveWELL takes the emphasis off the scale and focuses instead on dayto-day choices that lead to a healthy weight. “Your health is more than the time you spend in the gym (or don’t),â€? said

INFORMATION SESSIONS MONDAY, JULY 18 10 to 11 a.m. or 5:30 to 6:30 p.m. These sessions are completely free with no obligation. Call 232-1414 to sign up for a session that ďŹ ts your schedule!

Casey. “Finally taking control of your stress, eating habits, exercise habits and even relationships with others will lead to better health and an increased quality of life. “You will learn how to simplify your life while developing life-long, healthy habits.â€? The program takes time, said Mike. It’s a 12-week program that meets 3 times weekly for 1.5 hours each. “This time commitment reects the life commitment that our participants will be making to develop healthy behaviors,â€? he said. “The content is simple, but the work is great; thus, a large time commitment is required.â€? What do you need to succeed? “Again, it is simple,â€? said Casey. “You need a practical system for food selection; a sensible ďŹ tness routine that revs up your metabolism so that you can burn more fat; and skill power, not will power, routine habits for life. “We must get rid of the quick-ďŹ x mentality and look at making healthy changes for life.â€?
