Grant targets Civil War battleground town’s capital investment plan budget. Stuhl says the town has had success in the past getting the grants and she hopes to hear a decision sometime in the spring. Most of the needed land is already owned by the town. A small section is presently open space for Vista subdivision but will become greenway once the board is able to fund this link, which will end at the current greenway by the bridge into Sheffield subdivision. The town will then be responsible for maintaining the property. Stuhl says there will be signage detailing the historic significance of the site both at the trailhead parking and on the greenway. “Our goal is to keep connecting all the links and filling in the gaps,” she says. “Each time we can do that through grant money that’s matched or capital funds, we want to do that. Once done, all the trails will be interconnected.” Stuhl says it will be nice to have a middle point where someone could come in and get started down one of several greenway links at this location because they run off in different directions. “There are lots of greenway links we’d like to work on. We’re planning McFee Road to Wentworth subdivision across the creek. We have to figure out the plans and hope it will be constructed in next year or so.”

By Suzanne Foree Neal Farragut has a history of making the most of grants to fund its greenways, but Civil War history is behind the latest effort to add another link. Sue Stuhl, parks and leisure services director, has received approval from the Board of Mayor and Aldermen to apply for a Recreation Trails Program grant from the state. If granted, matching funds will be used for the development of the Virtue Road Greenway and Trailhead. Local historians surmise that area is the location of the bloodiest fighting during the Battle of Campbell Station on Nov. 16, 1863. Skirmishes between Union and Confederate troops started in Loudon County and continued as they marched toward Knoxville. Fighting cut through farmland in the heart of what is now Farragut. Town Hall sits on that battleground today. It was near Virtue Road that Maj. Frederick Swift of the 17th Michigan Infantry assumed responsibility for gathering his faltering troops to charge up the ridge with the command “form on me.” Swift was later awarded the Medal of Honor for his actions. Farragut is already a designated stop on the state’s Civil War Tour and Sthuh told board members she wanted to continue to make it a tourist stop with the newest proposed link to the town’s greenways. This link will allow access to the bridge over the creek and better view of the battle site on the ridge. The trailhead, with four parking spaces, will serve as an observation/educational area for visitors interested in Civil War history, Stuhl says. “It also gives someone who wants to use the greenway connections a place to park.” The town is asking for a matching grant of $63,750 with $51,000 to be provided by the state and $12,750 from the

Community service reaps rewards By Suzanne Foree Neal When it comes to summer vacations, four Farragut High School students did a lot more than kick back, chill and have fun. They spent their time serving others and have been awarded the school’s Community Service Awards for their efforts. The Community Service Outstanding Achiever award is an application process. Students who have 20 or more hours of community service fill out an application with a description of their community service projects and contact information for their “supervisors,” explains guidance counselor Rachel Bast. They also respond to the question, “What motivates you to be involved in the community?” Selection is made by a committee. “The Outstanding Achievers are students who reflect the ‘spirit’ of service to the community, students who go out of their way to serve and help others, and students who are intrinsically motivated to better the community,” Bast adds. This year’s group totaled 589 hours of community service. To page A-9

‘I didn’t take the job to go through the motions’ “Being on time, working hard, maximize your time during a threehour practice. You do that, then you put together a good week, and then you become a good ball player. Then you become a good team when you have four or five guys doing that.” Martin says the next phase for his team is to learn how to battle and compete against one another. He tells them they will get to sort out who becomes the starting five by how they compete and practice. He says he didn’t take the job to go through the motions. “My goal is for us to be the last team standing. We’ve got a tough schedule but it’s a great schedule. “You put your head down and work ’til the sun sets.”

last week that his team will be focused on effort, team togetherness, team toughness and, yep, discipline. “But when you explain it (discipline), they respond better to that.” Martin says he and his staff stress doing the right things off the court, stuff like getting up early and making an 8 a.m. class on time. He says it’s all about building long-term relationships. Team togetherness might mean a night at the bowling alley or eating dinner together. Often, he says, they don’t even talk about basketball. Team toughness isn’t just the physical “train like a boxer” mindset that Martin says is his approach, but “also the mental part.”

FARRAGUT SHOPPER-NEWS • OCTOBER 24, 2011 • A-3

Site plan comes together for car wash It took the Farragut Municipal Planning Commission somewhat longer than three minutes to discuss a site plan for a new Three Minute Magic Car Wash, but by the end of the discussion everyone was happily on the same page. The car wash is moving into the location vacated by Caliber Car Wash on Kingston Pike. There were two entrance/exit sites when that business was operating, but town staff was leaning toward requiring that the east location be closed. Owner Jim Rooney requested that both entrance/exit sites remain in use. “We have a complex traffic flow and need to keep cars moving forward,” he told the board. Sometimes vehicles show up towing things behind them, get in line, then find out they can’t take that boat, trailer, etc., through the car wash and have to leave. Other times, customers may decide they don’t want to wait and need to exit the line, he explained. Rooney said there isn’t enough room behind the building for customers to use that as a way out, so they would have to use that east entrance/exit as a way to get out without causing a disruption to traffic on Kingston Pike or other

Suzanne Foree Neal customers in line. “We could have traffic issues on Kingston Pike,” he said. Community Development Director Ruth Hawk noted the potential for head-on accidents with cars leaving the east entrance and turning east onto Kingston Pike with traffic from a nearby road and businesses using the same center turn lane within a short distance to go west on Kingston Pike. Another concern is no deceleration lane leaving westbound drivers making a 180-degree turn into the business at that east entrance. That situation causes concerns for rear end collisions. Rooney said there have been significant problems with only one entrance to the Three Minute Magic Car Wash on Lovell Road and that same situation at the Farragut location would create a problem on Kingston Pike with cars stacked up trying to get into the car wash. “I anticipated the challenge with cars turning left and causing collisions and I

could live with a right turn out only,” Rooney said of the east entrance/exit. He discussed that option with representatives of the Tennessee Department of Transportation who had the same concerns voiced by Hawk. Presented with a new plan that makes the east entrance/exit a right turn exit only with signs clearly marking it as such, Hawk said that would solve staff concerns. The planning commission was also pleased with the solution and voted unanimously to approve the revised site plan. They had only one more question for Rooney: When are you going to open? Seems commission members have a few dirty cars in need of a bath. The commission approved a request by Mark Senn with Blanchard and Calhoun Commercial to remove a letter of credit required for the walking trail improvements in greenway easement for property in the Campbell Station Exchange. The area is presently being used as a horse farm and the parties involved have not come to an agreement on development of the property. Senn said “things changed” and his company doesn’t have ownership of

Farragut wins Four Star Award The town of Farragut recently received a New Facility Four Star Award for McFee Park Phase 2 from the Tennessee Recreation and Parks Association (TRPA). Sue Stuhl, Parks and Leisure Services director, on Oct. 5 accepted the award at the 60th annual TRPA State Conference at Paris Landing State Park.

“The town of Farragut is thrilled to have received this award,” said Stuhl. “Staff from all town departments worked hard to plan and execute the design.” McFee Park encompasses 50 acres and is located in the town’s southwest quadrant. Phase 2, which opened last December, offers a playground, splash pad, pavil-

ions and walk trail, and includes 10 different “green” products or techniques including solar panels, LED lighting, permeable pavers, bioswales, drip irrigation, sun tunnels, rubber mulch made from recycled tires, recirculating splash pad, grass overflow parking and the exclusive use of native plants.

Recycler is recycled Smith, Briggs only ‘no’ votes By Larry Van Guilder Love, goes the song, is better the second time around. But what’s true for affairs of the heart may not apply to business affairs, so it was fitting that a heart surgeon pointed this out at the recent County Commission work session. With admirable restraint, Commissioner Richard Briggs questioned the wisdom of going back into the greenwaste recycling business with Natural Resources Recovery, reborn, for these purposes, as Nature’s Best Organics of Tennessee. “Do we really want to go back in business with a company that didn’t live up to its (former) contract obligations?” Briggs asked. The good doctor answered the quesBriggs tion to his own satisfaction with a far less diplomatic addendum, noting that “(NRR was) a company that – in my opinion – defrauded us of hundreds and hundreds of thousands of dollars.” The issue of fraud is a matter for the courts to decide. Local business owner Brad Mayes’ false claims suit is still active, even after the county in a 2008 mediated settlement with NRR in essence Smith declared “no harm, no foul” and renewed the company’s contract for three years. Commissioner Amy Broyles volunteered that, “A lot of what happened before was Knox County’s own fault.” Broyles is not Brad Mayes’ biggest fan, and her opinion leaves much unsaid. Certainly the maverick behavior of John Evans, the late solid waste director, can’t be disregarded. Without authority, Evans relieved NRR of its contractual revenue sharing obligation. But Chancellor John Weaver notably opined that the county’s reasons for dismissing Mayes’ lawsuit (the county initially joined the suit) were “disingenuous” and “spurious.” And Weaver’s 2009 ruling that the suit could go forward left little doubt that he was troubled by the evidence presented at the hearing. Is Nature’s Best Organics the best choice for the new contract? Public Works and Engineering Director Dwight Van de Vate is satisfied. “Purchasing has really taken this and put copious amounts of time into (the process) and we have confidence in the work done,” he said. Law Director Joe Jarret was careful not to express an opinion on the choice of vendors, only saying the contract contains provisions to protect the county’s interests. Specifically, the vendor must keep books and records and allow inspections of the same. The cynically minded among us would say that begs the question: Didn’t the contract which has generated lawsuits and enough acrimony to keep the larder stocked for years to come contain the same provisions? How did that work out for Knox County? The county needs a better outcome this time around; we’re running out of recyclers to recycle. Perhaps Briggs was thinking of Proverbs 26:11: “As a dog returneth to his vomit, so a fool returneth to his folly.” He cast his vote as if he was, joining R. Larry Smith as the only other commissioner to vote against the resolution. In absentia, Brad Mayes cast a resounding “nay.” Contact Larry Van Guilder at lvgknox@mindspring.com.

A-4 • OCTOBER 24, 2011 • WEST SIDE SHOPPER-NEWS

The gloves are off The mayoral campaign has entered a new, hard hitting phrase. The gloves are off and Mark Padgett is waging all out war. Padgett is determined to win, and he has Rogero responding to his charges. Padgett’s recent attack piece on Rogero hits tax votes from County Commission going back 20 years in one case. Rogero responded that her votes kept Austin-East and Fulton high schools open. She points out that Padgett has no record of public service. No doubt she worries that if she does respond, it gives his attacks more circulation. But if she ignores them the charges may stick. Either way is a political risk. However, remaining silent would be the greater risk. Rogero can count on several more attack pieces before Nov. 8. She will need to motivate her base to vote in droves to win. The first Padgett piece to

Victor Ashe

arrive at my mail box was a most unusual. First, it has potential Mayor Padgett on the waterfront in front of the closed Baptist Hospital. The mailer does not mention one thing Padgett plans to do to reopen or convert Baptist Hospital to another use. It is a symbol of failure with little current hope for revival. Most candidates liked to be pictured in front of successes. Padgett’s flyer cites “job creation” as point one. “Support businesses which already call Knoxville home.” But the bulk rate permit on the same mailer shows a Memphis permit (#4622) which suggests he is taking his business to Memphis,

not Knoxville. Padgett’s pledge does not match his practice in the same mailer. Several longtime businesses in Knoxville could have printed and mailed this item but he placed his campaign money elsewhere. Metro Pulse has jumped into the fray by questioning the number of employees Padgett has with a surprise visit to Padgett’s office which is featured in the current issue. My best guess is that Rogero still wins but by a closer margin than previously thought. Rogero will need to step forward with more publicity on the endorsements she has won such as the FOP and Firefighters plus neighborhood leaders from across the city to counter the Padgett endorsement announcements. Rogero also will need to send out mailers to offset the Padgett mailers. To date (Oct. 20), Padgett has sent out three mailers in four days while Rogero mailers have not arrived. Presumably, they are on the way. Rogero needs to be more

visible in these final weeks on TV and in the mail to have the convincing win she seeks. ■ KUB is sending Mayor Brown five or more names to replace attorney Tom Jones who is leaving the KUB board after two terms (14 years). Mayor Brown will choose one name to submit to City Council for a vote. More on this process in a later column. ■ Larry Martin, who has been a key player in the Haslam and Brown administrations, emailed me in response to an inquiry that he plans to leave city government before the new mayor takes office in mid-December. Martin has been the “go-to” person in the city for the past six years serving ably and effectively. Some observers had thought he would stay if Rogero wins. ■ Former County Commissioner Bee DeSelm has moved from Hamilton House in Sequoyah Hills to Shannondale Retirement Center in West Hills. She is recovering from a recent fall but doing well.

Campaign aides reflect their boss Last Monday night, Mark Padgett’s campaign manager Tony Coppola filled in for his candidate at the Alice Bell Spring Hill Neighborhood Association while Padgett

Betty Bean hit the West Hills homeowner’s group. He got a polite, if somewhat subdued reception, possibly because his candidate got endorsed by Realtors and homebuilders’ groups earlier in the day. On Tuesday morning, his counterpart, Chip Barry, campaign manager for Madeline Rogero, was covered up with infrastructure work in his candidate’s Sutherland Avenue headquarters. Scheduling, planning, coordinating fundraising activities and dealing with volunteers made for an appointment-filled day.

Now 27, he is a hired gun who has been involved with eight Democratic candidates, starting with an entry-level staff position with the John Edwards campaign in Iowa. He has been working in the Padgett campaign since late May, when he came here from Florida where he managed a congressional campaign for Lori Edwards, a Democratic woman in a

heavily Republican district. She was an underdog from the get-go and it was no surprise that she lost. Barry came to Knoxville from Nashville 27 years ago to attend the University of Tennessee and has never left. He has long been active in neighborhood issues – he is past president of the Colonial Village Neighborhood Association, treasurer of the South Knoxville Neighborhood and Business Coalition, and a board member of the South Knoxville Foundation – and is making his first foray into politics. The bulk of his work experience has been in operations management of mental health centers and nonprof-

its, but more recently he has been a Realtor because having flexible work hours has given him the time to make extended Nashville visits to care for his aging parents. He says he has never been particularly partisan. “I went to work for Madeline as campaign manager in January after being recommended by some other neighborhood people who advocated on my behalf because they saw me as someone actively involved in community issues and as someone with operations experience,” he said. “I’ve really enjoyed it. Every day’s a different experience.” Coppola’s history, on the other hand, is that of a yellow dog Democrat who isn’t shy about mixing it up if need be. When asked if he is comfortable accompanying Padgett to Republican strongholds to woo GOP support in this nonpartisan race, he stayed on message: “I don’t think Mark views politics through a partisan lens. Creating jobs is his No. 1 goal and the issue I care about most is jobs and the economy. We’re going to get this economy going.”

more worthy dad than Victor. At the Farragut Rotary last week, the former mayor told of his appointment as ambassador to Poland. The idea of an ambassadorship was first suggested by President George W. Bush, who was a classmate of Ashe at Yale University. George and Laura Bush attended the Knoxville wedding of Victor and Joan and went whitewater rafting with them. So Victor was interested in an ambassadorship and had talked a couple of times with a White House representative. It was approaching Christmas and the Ashes The next Martha Ashe opted to send Martha, then It’s said that parents 10, along with Victor to the get the kids they deserve, White House Christmas Victor Ashe speaks at the Far- so certainly Martha Ashe, Party.

But the food and decorations are great, said Victor. He and Martha inched along the line and up to the president. “So have you decided to take that job in Poland?� asked Bush. Victor had not mentioned the possibility to his kids, and Martha is not dumb. “Are we moving to Poland?� she asked as they headed upstairs to dinner. “I do not want to go. “I don’t know anyone in Poland. All of my friends are here. If I go to Poland, they’ll find other friends and I’ll never see them again. “How could you do this to us? I don’t want to go and I’ll just tell you, J. Victor won’t want to go either!� She fussed in this vein all through dinner. “You don’t get a vote,� Victor told her. So off to Poland went the Ashes, and last year, the day after Christmas, Martha was on a plane to Poland to visit her friends there.

Corn Maze crazy! By Cindy Taylor For 10 years, folks have been coming to pick their pumpkins and walk the maze at Oakes Farm. The 2011 event has broadened to include visitors from Kentucky, Alabama and beyond. Ken Oakes and his brother-in-law David Black are managers of the Corn Maze at Oakes Farm while founder Stewart Oakes now works primarily as manager of Oakes Daylilies. “Our most popular attraction is the rest rooms,� said Ken Oakes. “People never liked the port-a-potties, so we replaced them a couple of years ago. This event has become a family tradition with a lot of folks who spend half a day or all day. One of our most popular photo op is the sign post ‘How Tall This Fall’ so families can see how much children have grown from the previous visit.� The primary maze covers nine acres and is a tribute to Daytona 500 winner Trevor Bayne, who will visit

ill Willis has a way of turning up. “I get into situations I don’t deserve,” he puts it. Bill was in Fountain City Park a couple of weeks ago when Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey and legislative committee chairs endorsed Becky Duncan Massey for state senator. “Are those folks politicians?” he asked. Well, yes, Bill. Where have you been? Turns out Bill marched with Martin Luther King Jr., drove for Bobby Kennedy and has met people the rest of us have only read about. The retired preacher now lives in Knox County with wife Lynn to be near their only grandson. What stories he tells. Lynn gigged him to tell “coal pile,” a story he says makes him seem closer to Dr. King than he was. Seems King and his confidantes were at somebody’s home in Selma when some kids were arrested. As Bill tells it, the kids were released and then arrested again before they got home.

He was incensed. “I was mad as hell. I stormed out and slammed the door and said, ‘I’m about ready to burn it down!’” Standing by a coal pile, he heard the door close again and footsteps. Dr. King spoke softly, “I think you’re involved (in the Civil Rights movement) out of concern for social justice. I don’t think it grows out of your Christian faith. Mine does and I hope you learn this.” Although a preacher then, Bill said it was years later before a “Christian experience” deepened his faith. Back at the coal pile, another fellow later asked what King had said. “Oh, just some black preacher talk,” Bill replied. William Willis Jr. and Lynn have been married for 33 years. Lynn says, “God matched us,” and Bill agrees, but adds, “How often God is confused with our imaginations.” Bill is complex. He holds a doctorate but not from Harvard which he attended for three years. Smart enough

to be admitted, he never graduated from the Ivy League university. “A professor told me I was a rare one who didn’t do well enough to flunk out,” he says. Andrew Young: UN Ambassador for Jimmy Carter and later mayor of Atlanta. Bill was with Young, then mayor, when a little girl approached, crying she was lost. “Honey, you’re not lost, you’re with me!” said Young, taking her to the dais. Another time Bill was with Young in the Chicago airport

Abernathy rose to introduce him. “Now Ralph McGill (crusading editor and publisher of the Atlanta Constitution) has referred to Billy Willis as Dr. King’s white lieutenant, but this ain’t no lie. Billy is a five-star general!” The crowd cheered. Stolen sermon: My favorite thing is preaching, says Bill, and once King sent him to Brooklyn to fill in. A young intern went along. “It was an upscale black church; people were wearing minks and furs,” Bill says. When they returned, the intern raved. “You oughtta heard him. He was great. He had that crowd in his hands.” “But what did he say?” asked King. “He took his text from Acts 27, ‘and they made it in on broken pieces,’ not on white horses or with a grand army.” King said, “I’m quite familiar with that sermon. Billy stole it from me.” Bobby Kennedy: He called me “The Reverend,” Bill said. “And I did not call him Bobby.” Willis met Robert Kennedy in Detroit following the riots of 1967. Kennedy was running for president and Willis was there to help calm the community. Bill volunteered to help in Kennedy’s campaign and later was tasked with driving the candidate to an event.

Just believe the gospel. Jesus never said that.” While Bill’s lifestyle has mellowed, his idealism burns brightly and he’s a joy to know. One never knows who will turn up in Fountain City Park.

His training is in counseling, which Lynn calls “creative listening.” Bill says a counselor must be objective, ask questions and get the patient to talk. “Most people know the answer without knowing the question.” He and Lynn have done couples counseling. “One of the nice things about the Christian faith is it’s adaptable. … New Testa-

We also like to cherrypick our firmly held tenets of faith. I know lots of upstanding Methodists who want to quibble over certain of the Articles of Faith they claim to believe. For that matter, I know lots of upstanding members of many denominations who will say, when pushed, “Well, no, I don’t exactly agree with that one tenet of what my church says.” My point is this: it is OK to be not quite so concerned about every jot and tittle, and to pay way more attention to the overarching sweep of the story of God’s creation of, activity in and abiding love for the world. That is the story contained in The Book. It all counts; it all matters; it all brings its own witness to bear on the grand arc that is God’s love and concern and mercy showered upon Creation.

Speaking up for East Tennessee’s poor By Wendy Smith The Rev. Ragan Schriver, executive director of Catholic Charities of East Tennessee (CCET), is a bundle of positive energy. In fact, a highlight of his recent trip to Washington, D.C., was an early morning run past the national monuments. It shows in the way he tells stories, too, such as the one about the nun who got busted for taking a picture at the White House with her cell phone. But it’s most obvious in his passion for helping the poor. Schriver grew up in West Knoxville and graduated from Catholic High School. His office is one of several sprinkled among the rooms of those who live in Samaritan Place, a homeless shelter for seniors located off Middlebrook Pike. He has been a tireless advocate for the homeless and served as president of the East Tennessee Coalition for the Homeless. Catholic Charities USA

Madelon Brillante and the Rev. Ragan Schriver of Catholic Charities of East Tennessee stand in front of the Eisenhower Executive Office Building next door to the White House. Catholic Charities agency leaders from across the country were invited to Washington, D.C., for a roundtable discussion and White House policy briefing. Photo submitted

awarded CCET $25,000 for its transitional housing program, Elizabeth’s Homes, which serves 31 economically disadvantaged families in scattered sites in Knoxville, Harriman and the Tri-Cities area. The program works because families are given the support they need, then moved toward self-sufficiency, Schriver says. He had the opportunity to share his energy and insight into the lives of the poor in East Tennessee when he joined other Catholic Charities agency leaders at a roundtable discussion and White House policy briefing on Oct. 13-14. Events included dinner at the National Press Club and a tour of the White House. It was an opportunity to meet with others who share his passion. There were 130 agency leaders in attendance, counting Schriver and Madelon Brillante, human resources and facilities director at CCET. “Everybody was excited to be there. They all had different stories to tell.” Members of the Obama administration were listening. The White House Office of Public Engagement was

sincerely interested in hearing about the work of those “on the ground,” he says. White House staff expressed gratitude to agency leaders, and it was obvious to Schriver that their concern for the poor was more than just political rhetoric. Meeting with counterparts from across the country was helpful, he says, because the agencies face similar challenges and were able to share best practices. But it was also sobering to realize that the number of people in poverty is growing, in spite of all the work. He came away from the weekend filled with hope, despite Chief of Staff Bill Daley’s position that Americans are too entrenched in their thinking for real social change to happen. Schriver disagrees. “Things can change, there just has to be political will, and citizens have to speak out about caring for people who are vulnerable,” he says. Catholic Charities provides food, shelter, counseling and education to the region without regard to race, religion or ability to pay. It has offices in Knoxville, Chattanooga and Jonesborough.

From 7-11 p.m. Friday, Oct. 28, James White’s Fort will become the stage for the first Hearth Scares Ball. Executive Director Sam Maynard describes the Hearth Scares Ball as “a frighteningly fun way to showcase James White’s Fort as a premiere location for events including tailgating parties, weddings and many other gatherings.” The event will feature Lori Tucker as the master of ceremonies, dancing to the sounds of the Chillbillies, appetizers provided by Rothschild Catering, a costume party, silent auction and other adult treats as the evening unfolds on the back lawn of the Fort. Tickets are $75 per person and can be purchased by sending payment to JWF Association, 205 E. Hill Ave., Knoxville,TN 37915 or by visiting the website at www. jameswhitefort.org. All proceeds from the event will benefit urgent preservation needs at the Fort, a 501(c)(3) nonprofit. Info: 525-6514.

George has been photographing for years. He has taken after-school art classes since he was in the 2nd grade and has been working with Don Dudenbostel, a local professional photographer and artist, for four years. “I’ve always had an interest for photography. I had the option to work with Don and I took it, and I’ve since fallen in love with it,” George says. George’s work has shown in several shows and competitions. He has done a show called “Side by Side” with the Community School of the Arts for the past four years. He also has done several Knoxville Museum of Art school shows. He is entering a Scholastic show for the third time this year. George has won several competitions. He has won gold and silver keys in photography from Scholastic shows and first place in his grade at last year’s Knox County Fair as well as honorable mention and best digital photography in past years. He has also won at the KMA and, from

George Niceley last year’s show, George received a full-ride scholarship to attend a summer program at the Maryland Institute College of Art for four weeks. He is constantly perfecting his craft, trying to take several pictures a week. “I just find things to take pictures of, things that look interesting. I try to take pictures of stuff other people don’t. … It kind of gives me a niche.” As for his future plans, George says, “At this point I’m not 100 percent positive, but I will probably end up doing photography as a pastime. But that could very well change.” George has a passion for photography. He says, “I really just enjoy taking pictures. I like spending time just going around and searching for a good picture. Some of them turn out and some don’t, but it’s still fun. … It’s nice having a hobby that no one else really has. It’s made me understand and appreciate my surroundings.”

Start the week off right.

Figuring it’s never too late to get started on the annual October canned food drive for Second Harvest Food Bank, Helen kicked off Boone the effort during the summer. The vice president of the Student Government Association organized volunteers to go door-to-door handing out bags and notes about the food drive on Mondays and returning on Saturdays to collect donations. Students repeated the process all summer. What most impressed her about the can drive was the generosity of people. “Many of those who donated left nice notes and a lot of goods,” she says. “Some of the less affluent neighborhoods gave the most. It really touched me that people cared so much.” She spent 78 hours over the summer working on her Girl Scout Gold Award, the equivalent of the Boy Scout’s Eagle Award. Her project was organizing the music library for the Joy of Music School in Knoxville. It provides musical instruments and lessons for free to disadvantaged youth. Helen has played piano since she was 8 and flute since 8th grade. She also participates in the Knoxville Youth Symphony Orchestra where she plays flute and piccolo. “The Joy of Music is really close to my heart because music has been an influence on me,” she says. “It teaches discipline and is so rewarding to see how much you’ve progressed.”

The school gets lots of donated sheet music but had no real system for filing it, she says. Helen bought two filing cabinets and created a color-coded system so both students and teachers could find music they wanted. She also spoke at several schools about the Joy of Music School and the services it provides. She hopes other students will get involved as volunteers teaching music to younger children. As if this wasn’t enough, Helen, daughter of Michael and Aileen Boone, also attended the Governor’s School for Engineering at UT. She hopes to major in biomedical engineering. During her six weeks in the program Helen says he learned a lot and made some really good friends. ■

Jake Bruce, junior It’s

not

often someone from around here gets to play an extra in a movie, but Jake did. His mother, Kristy Bruce, was in charge Bruce of props for the movie “Laughing at the Moon” that was filmed in Knoxville back in the summer. He was her No. 1 assistant helping her get props together for the movie. Being an extra was “awesome and fun to see how it all works,” he says. His mother worked for HGTV here in Knoxville for 15 years, so for him it was somewhat like the “take your child to work” experience. He says it was interesting to see how she worked and went about organizing things. “It’s pretty cool,” he says, adding he might look into TV and movie produc-

tion in college. Also on his calendar was a mission trip to Nicaragua. He went with a group from Christian Academy of Knoxville. “We helped build a house for a family, passed out food and conducted church services,” he says. “Everything was amazing. I learned I shouldn’t take for granted what I have. I did miss the comforts of home, but it’s not that big of a deal for me.” He also found time to help his father, Brian Bruce, a football announcer for Farragut middle and high school teams. Jake served as a spotter on the field to relay information about plays to his father. Some of the games Jake assisted with were the Jamboree matchups. ■

Grace Baek, sophomore

She had such a good time volu nte e r ing at Arbor Terrace Assisted Living Facility on Cross Park Drive last year that Grace returned this Baek summer and spent most of her community service time there. “I know all their coffee orders,” she says, laughing. “Wanda likes hers black and decaff and Judy wants one packet of Sweet & Low and caffeinated. I love to sit and listen to all their stories. They have lived a different lifestyle. Their sense of humor is different and they are really kind.” As a volunteer she went with them on picnics and field trips to places like the Dollar Store, a big event for them. They also turned the

teen into a Fast Track and Bingo fanatic. “They get really competitive at Bingo and when they win, they really jump out of those walkers!” she says, laughing. Fast Track, which she compares to the board game Sorry, isn’t made anymore. She got so wrapped up playing with three elderly women Grace didn’t notice they had been at it for three hours. Grace went from working with the elderly to working with youngsters as she taught liturgy classes to children from preschool to 2nd grade at Sacred Heart Cathedral. “I interpreted the readings for them so they could understand on a child’s level,” she explains. Unlike having to sit still in church, in her class the students were free to move around, color their work sheets and solve a puzzle relevant to the reading. “It puts it in much simpler terms when you read the teachers’ handbook,” Grace says, adding she learned a few things herself. “I love working with children and the elderly. They have such unconditional love.” She also worked four hours a week folding silverware into napkins in the kitchen at Mercy West, now Tennova. “I saw how tedious manual labor is and how hard you have to work,” said the daughter of Hae and Seung Baek.

Tanay Mankad, freshman

He spent part of his summer volu nte e r ing at the endoscopic ultrasound department and internal medicine wing at the UT Medical Mankad Center. It was his job to be a calming presence for patients who were uneasy about procedures. “You learn to create a positive work environment for yourself and other volunteers,” he says. “When someone was in pain, it was our job to be there for them.” Another volunteer project for him was working with the Autism Society of America. He took autistic patients from ages 4 to 19 on field trips to movies and pool parties. “My mom is an occupational therapist and works with special

needs people,” he says. His parents are Mohit and Sujata Mankad. “Our job was not to get overloaded with pity for them, but play with them and show them life will be better for them,” he says. Their tenacity to do well with any given task is what most impressed Tanay about his charges. It was important, he says, to keep them trying harder to complete tasks. He learned some things along the way, too. “There was one kid, Fritz, probably 8 years old, an elementary school student. When he tries, he succeeds. He’s good at athletics and academics and you wonder how he can have autism, but he has no concept of strangers.” Tanay also tried his hand at being a soccer ref. A friend told him about a referee program for people his age. It was his job to watch play action from the sidelines and decide if a ball was in or out. “I love soccer and wanted to do it,” he says.

NEWS FROM PREMIER VEIN CLINICS

Rotarians celebrate birthday of ‘Mr. Rotary’ Those of us who were children in the 1940s and ’50s remember our parents’ fear at the mere mention of the word “polio.” In those days, thousands of children across the globe died or were paralyzed by the dread disease every year. It was an epidemic. And it was scary.

Anne Hart

Summertime was the season when the disease was most contagious. In those days there were no visits by children to neighborhood pools or movie theatres, at least not in Chattanooga, where I grew up. Crowds were just too dangerous. The risk of infection was too high. Instead, summer meant quick trips to the library to check out books for quiet reading at home. And then, in the mid-50s, Dr. Jonas Salk’s years of research finally paid off. On one summer day, more than a million of us kids were marched into makeshift clinics set up all across the country to get “a polio shot” as part of a human trial to test Dr. Salk’s vaccine. My clearest memory of that day, as the oldest of four siblings, was my mother’s stern warning: “If it hurts, don’t you dare cry. You’ll scare your sister and brothers.” They had to get the shots right after I did. I can’t remember if the shot hurt. But it worked. Summer belonged to kids again, and parents all across America could stop worrying about polio. But that wasn’t the case in the rest of the world, particularly in under-developed countries where there was no polio vaccine. Efforts to bring change to those areas had been fragmented and ineffective. Then Rotary International got involved and joined with the World Health Organization, the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and UNICEF to try

West Knox Rotarians, family members and friends gathered with balloons and flowers at downtown’s Krutch Park last week at the statue that depicts Bill Sergeant administering oral polio vaccine to a child. It would have been the 92nd birthday of the man known around the world as “Mr. Rotary.” From left are West Knox Rotary members Tom Daughtrey, Sergeant’s son-inlaw; Barbara Hood, Sergeant’s daughter; Larry Sheumaker, District 6780 assistant governor coordinator; club president Lucy Gibson and past district governor Art Pickle. Photo by Fred Heitman to change things, to bring about the same results this country had seen – to eradicate polio altogether. Knoxville resident Bill Sergeant, an Army veteran of World War II and the Korean War, who spent his working life in Oak Ridge and was a member of the Oak Ridge Rotary from 1947 until his death in February of this year at the age of 91, agreed to chair the organization’s International PolioPlus Committee (IPPC) for 12 years, developing strategies and policies for ending the disease. His unwavering dedication to the task, and the success he was able to achieve, is an incredible success story and earned him the sobriquet “Mr. Rotary.” That became the name by which he was known and admired worldwide. At one of the many ceremonies where Sergeant was paid tribute, a speaker noted, “Bill, when you began your job there were approximately 1,000 children every single day being paralyzed by polio. Today there are approximately 1,000 children

paralyzed in a single year. You truly represent Rotary International’s motto of ‘Service above Self.’ ” Bill Sergeant’s tireless efforts to eradicate polio epitomize everything good about Rotary, whose members to date have raised more than half a billion dollars in the fight against polio and whose every chapter is involved in the work in some way. West Knox Rotary president Lucy Gibson said last week, “We are 99 percent of the way toward our goal of completely eliminating polio, largely thanks to the work of Bill Sergeant. Whenever we talk to people about Rotary, we always mention him and his accomplishments and his impact on the global community. It is a real source of pride to all of us.” No one seems to know who first dubbed Bill Sergeant “Mr. Rotary,” but no one would ever question that he deserved the title – or that angels walk among us every day.

The truth about varicose veins Facelifts, tummy tucks, treatment of varicose veins… Far too often people lump these procedures together, mistakenly assuming that all are done exclusively for cosmetic reasons and that they are targeted to women. The truth is, treating varicose veins is medically necessary, and the condition affects both men and women. Premier Vein Clinics patient James Craine is a good example. “The varicose veins created painful knots in my legs,” said Craine. “I was in pain driving. I was in pain standing up. Then I was told that if I didn’t do something about the veins, I might eventually have to have my leg amputated. My personal physician referred me to Dr. Hugh Hyatt at Premier Vein Clinics, and I couldn’t be happier with the results.” The board-certified surgeons at Premier are trained in the treatment of spider and varicose veins and venous disease, and can use that clinical experience to determine the best treatment option. Thanks to advancements in medical technology, most procedures require only a local anesthetic, take an hour or less, and have little or no side effects or down time. Seeking treatment sooner rather than later is important. “James came to us in time to treat his varicose veins with simple, effective procedures,” said Dr. Hyatt. “We were able to attack the root of the problem rather than James having to later use a drastic pro-

NEWS FROM WEBB SCHOOL OF KNOXVILLE

The Middle School Experience By David Nelson Middle School Head Webb School of Knoxville

T

he Webb Middle School experience is designed to be both inspirational and aspirational. The halls buzz each day as students and teachers work in partnership to achieve individual and collective goals in the context of joyful and David Nelson respectful relationships. Together, learners of all ages, young and old, navigate the daily opportunities to grow and develop. The sixth through eighth grade format provides for a developmentally appropriate transition from the traditional elementary setting and has as its ultimate goal preparation for a rigorous college preparatory high

school program. Webb School’s main entry point is sixth grade. The typical sixth grade class includes approximately 50 students new to the campus. These students matriculate from more than 15 different elementary schools in the greater Knoxville area, and join approximately 46 students who have just completed their fifth grade year in Webb’s Lower

The typical sixth grade class includes approximately 50 students new to the campus. These students matriculate from more than 15 different elementary schools in the greater Knoxville area.

Webb aspires to develop the salient skills of the 21st century student: communications, collaboration, innovation, creativity, and problem solving.

School. This large entry point is part of a strategic philosophy that allows the school to broaden student diversity. Webb seeks to attract and retain students from diverse backgrounds who possess intellectual curiosity, solid academic potential, special talents and interests, and strong character. Webb’s Middle School offers an inspiring and engaging program that supports the overall growth of each student. The developmentally responsive program is strategically designed to meet the needs of early adolescents. It puts the student at the center of learning and recognizes that intellectual growth is only one of the primary objectives during the middle grade years. As early adolescents enter into a critical stage of selfexploration, they deserve a program with a broad and diverse array of classes and activities. Webb’s extensive offerings in both curricular and extracurricular areas help to ensure that we are growing well-rounded young leaders and allowing students to investigate areas of great passion. Students take daily classes in math, science, world language, social stud-

ies, literature, and composition. Additionally, students are enrolled in music, art and physical education classes. This daily schedule allows students to gain an understanding of and appreciation for various disciplines, while acquiring key core knowledge and skills. It is through these classes that Webb aspires to develop the salient skills of the 21st century student: communications, collaboration, innovation, creativity,

iPads and Exchange Programs In anticipation of a rapidly changing world, Webb School continues to research and implement programs that will enable our students to succeed in a global society. Two Middle School programs, among many on our campus, stand as strong examples to this commitment. The one-to-one iPad initiative allows each student and teacher to take learning mobile. Our students use video and audio components to capture key activities in class and review them at a later time. They enter into real-time chats with their classmates about topics such as the Articles of Confederation. They write essays that are assessed electronically by an application that provides instant feedback and tutorials. Beyond using the iPads for learning,

Webb Middle School students welcome visiting students from El Salvador at McGhee Tyson Airport as part of Webb’s student exchange program with La Escuela Americana/ The American School. the one-to-one program gives us an almost hourly platform to teach digital literacy and citizenship. It provides the opportunity to explore digital etiquette, rights and responsibilities, laws, and

security. We understand clearly that simply placing an iPad in the hands of an early adolescent will not prepare him/her for the tech world they will inherit as adults.

Webb

and problem solving. These critical skills will allow students to tackle more rigorous content in future study as well as prepare them for an everchanging world. Outside the classroom, school-sponsored activities help students in their pursuit of self-exploration and self-definition. Our athletic program provides students with 17 sports and at least one “no-cut” team in each of the three seasons. Our goal of developing worldly citizens can be seen daily in our commitment to service learning. Students often investigate community or world issues in an effort to be leaders in serving others. Their investment from start to finish in service projects fosters leadership skills that prove foundational in later life. Key to the success of most middle school students is a faculty that clearly understands the developmental characteristics of this age group. Our veteran faculty recognizes that being an adolescent is hard work. The teachers are as dedicated to their roles as advisors as they are to teaching in their chosen subject areas. The commitment to overall student development is critical at a time when these young people are changing at a rapid pace. Webb teachers nurture, support, mentor, challenge, and celebrate our students.

A student exchange program with La Escuela Americana/The American School in El Salvador exposes all of our students to adolescents from another country. For 15 years the program has allowed our students to meet and learn about the physical geography, people and culture of El Salvador. Each fall, a group of 15-20 students visit Webb for approximately 12 days. In addition to attending classes, La Escuela Americana students host a cultural fair for their friends at Webb. This exchange program benefits all of our students as they learn from their visiting classmates and develop lasting friendships along the way. Webb sends a similar delegation to La Escuela Americana each February. The Middle School’s partnership with La Escuela Americana is part of the global initiative at Webb and supports our commitment to promoting global understanding and citizenship, fostering a deep appreciation for the languages and cultures of the world, and an understanding of how the United States fits into a global context.

Active mom advocates for ‘life-saving’ breast exams following cancer diagnosis During a breast self exam, Susan Horn, 39, noticed something wasn’t normal. Her physician was also concerned and recommended a mammogram. Horn’s worst fear was confirmed: she had breast cancer. The diagnosis surprised Horn because she leads a healthy lifestyle, eats well and exercises often. Three of her friends had already faced breast cancer, so Horn and her family were familiar with many of the emotions and choices that she would face on her journey to recovery. Horn says the hardest time was the uncertainty during the beginning of her diagnosis. She wanted to know how invasive her cancer was to determine her odds for survival. Fortunately, tests revealed that her breast cancer was detected early during Stage 2, and it wasn’t an aggressive type which is more common in younger women. “My husband was by my side through diagnoses, surgery and chemotherapy,� said Horn. “We decided that it would benefit me

good man, and I trust his clinical judgment,� Horn said. Genetic counseling revealed that Horn’s breast cancer wasn’t genetically tied – something she is very thankful for since she has two daughters. To decrease the odds of having her cancer recur, Horn elected to have a bilateral mastectomy with surgeon Lytle Brown and plastic surgeon Jay Lucas at Parkwest Medical Center. To eradicate the cancer, Horn completed four rounds of chemotherapy. She credits the experience for enlightening her with empathy for others who face health challenges. “It has been incredible. I’ve felt the supportive arms of God around me through the kindness of my friends and family,� said Horn. “They offer me kind words of encouragement and secretly Breast cancer survivor Susan Horn dedicates much of herself to helping others.

father’s old world secrets of baking. His father’s recipes and Buddy’s innovative decorating and sugar art techniques have taken the business, Carlo’s Bakery, above and beyond his father’s wildest dreams. Today, Valastro is an accomplished master baker and cake decorator and star of the hit TLC reality show “Cake Boss.� Valastro and the staff at Carlo’s Bakery have created thousands of beautiful works of art and some that are quite unusual. Some of the most recent designs include a toilet bowl cake, a cake for a new car dealership and the replica of a baseball stadium compete with working scoreboard. The most popular cake at the bakery is a classic, simple floral design known as the “groovy girl� cake.

In search of signature win If all goes well, some day we will look back and say THAT was the Derek Dooley signature victory. It is not easy to score a sizzling upset or just win a meaningful run-of-the-mill thriller when you are fighting with a short stick – but it has happened. Robert R. Neyland did it early in his career, third Saturday in October, 1928, edge of Tuscaloosa town, young Vols against the vaunted Alabama Crimson Tide. The then Army captain fed enemy overconfidence by suggesting they let the clock run if the home team got too far ahead.

Dodd. The second half was a pointless war. Tennessee won 15-13. On that day were born the Flamin’ Sophomores, the stuff of legends. They grew up to go undefeated for 33 games. Believe me, Neyland had other signature wins. Hall of fame coach Bowden Wyatt got his in Atlanta, Nov. 10, 1956, third-ranked Volunteers against No. 2 Georgia Tech. This was a classic in Bobby Gordon punting, defensive fundamentals and field position. It pivoted on two Johnny Majors passes to Buddy Cruze. Tommy

Tech threatened in the first quarter, got as close as the UT 28 and PUNTED on fourth and four. Why would Dodd do that? Said Wyatt: “Because he knew he couldn’t make it.” Tennessee ran a play and quick-kicked, 68 yards to the other end of Grant Field, a safer place to play. The Vols scored in the third quarter.

possession, Tech standing by helpless, UT fans counting down the seconds, 14, 13, 12, 11. What a delightful day! Doug Dickey had a signature tie with Alabama and three great victories but the unforgettable game was the Rosebonnet Bowl, 37-34 over UCLA in Memphis. Dewey Warren did it. The Swamp Rat ran so long to complete a 1-yard run, officials considered delay of game. Bill Battle’s big win was the amazing rout of Air Force in the 1971 Sugar Bowl. Praise be to Bobby Scott. You have a choice in Majors’ dramatic coaching career, the Miracle at South

Bend, terrific comeback victory over Notre Dame, or the 35-7 mauling of Miami in the 1986 Sugar Bowl. That one remains a memorial to defensive strategist Ken Donahue. The signature victory for Phillip Fulmer was the 1998 national championship, 2316 over Florida State. The ending against Arkansas was better. This next thought is tricky. Read at your own risk. There were two signatures in ’92, Georgia and Florida, back to back, while Fulmer was fi ll-in coach. Great victories. Careful about going there. Might start a riot.
