With the beautiful Fox Den entrance as a backdrop, Dogwood Arts Festival volunteers get ready for the official ribbon-cutting that opened the Farragut trail on April 10. Farragut is the featured trail for the 2013 festival, which continues through April. The Farragut trail begins at Fox Den, continues through Country Manor and ends in Village Green. The trail features public gardens and camera sites. Holding the ribbon are Shirley Fogarty, committee member for the Farragut trail; Nancy Schmitz, chair of the Farragut trail; and Ann Graf, overall trails chair for the festival.

Cuckoo for clocks By Suzanne Foree Neal Time seldom stands still when J.D. Miller and Joanie LaTorre are on the job. It is their job to get time moving again, no matter if that progress is measured by a Rolex or a cuckoo clock. Miller has moved his longtime watch repair business on Magnolia Avenue to Farragut. LaTorre, a longtime clock appraiser for the television show “Antiques Roadshow,” and her husband, L.J., moved their second-generation clock/watch repair business from Florida to Tennessee two years ago and set up shop at Black Bear Clock Repair in Sevierville. L.J. fixes clocks there. Miller and LaTorre have been consulting on clocks for years. “It seemed right to get together,” she said. They brought in Terri Anderson, who designs and makes custom jewelry, to add the jewelry component of the business. Concord Watch, Clock & Jewelry Center is at 11130 Kingston Pike, around the corner from the former Food City location. Most of the antique clocks in the store are at least 100 years old. When Miller was a teenager, he wanted to know how a watch worked, so he took one apart and put it back together. That began a fascination with clocks and watches that has stayed with him for 50
years. He worked as a petroleum and natural gas engineer for Sun Oil Co. for many years, fixing timepieces as a hobby. “I decided the corporate world wasn’t for me,” he said. “I started fixing clocks and watches full time. I’ll work on anything that ticks except bombs.” In addition to fixing timepieces, he’s also a collector, with a personal passion for pocket watches. The oldest, and a favorite, is a doctor’s watch in a round sharkskin case that dates to 1795. It was made by a company that made pocket watches for five generations of kings. The business draws customers from nearby states as well as locals. LaTorre goes to Florida once a month to pick up clocks from people in her old business neighborhood. “I had customers who were mad at me for closing,” she says of the Florida store. “They said I couldn’t leave because I was the only one they trusted with their family heirlooms. Clocks are made to last for generations.” Their biggest problem is trying to repair someone else’s repairs. “People think if they can fix a car, they can fix a clock,” LaTorre says. “But they can’t, because it is very delicate work.” Miller says sometimes timepieces are so damaged that it costs more to fix them than they are worth.
Joanie LaTorre and J.D. Miller always have an eye on the clock – or sometimes the watch. The duo have set up shop at Concord Watch, Clock & Jewelry Center. Photo by Suzanne F. Neal Those may find a new home in his parts drawer. LaTorre’s reputation as an appraiser has her number on many folks’ speed dial. She gets calls and photos from people at flea markets, garage sales and antique stores, asking if they should buy a certain timepiece and wondering what might be wrong with the clock and how much it might cost to fi x it. When it comes to timepieces, they take all brands. In one day, they took in a Mickey Mouse watch and a woman’s Rolex. LaTorre’s favorite is the Seth Thomas Sonora
chime clock with four, five or eight bells, because she loves the sound. When her cellphone rings, it is to the sound of clock chimes. Miller’s ringtone is clock bells. While Miller also works on clocks, he prefers watches. “You enjoy doing what you appreciate more and what you do well. There aren’t many people who will touch watches,” he said, resulting in the store getting a lot of sub-contractor work. Sometimes that means digging deep to find an old part or making it. “Discontinued is a favorite word,” he said, with a laugh.
Community school coordinators reflect on first year By Wendy Smith There are still kinks to work out at Knox County’s three new community schools. But site resource coordinators at Green Magnet, Lonsdale and Norwood elementary schools see favorable results from
Analysis afterschool programs that benefit students and their families. All are optimistic that the programs will be even better next year. The coordinators have been surprised and pleased by the organizations that have offered after-
school programming to students. Liz Thacker coordinates the program at Norwood, which serves approximately 100 students five days a week. For example, Thacker contacted the Northwest Middle School step team to see Liz Thacker if they would be willing to perform for her students. The coach asked if, instead, the middle school students could put on a mini-camp. The camp,
held last week, was fun for all. Adam Fritts, coordinator of Lonsdale’s community school, is amazed by how the need for programming often dovetails perfectly with an organization’s need to provide it. The Joy of Music School receives grants that require it to provide education, and the 90 kids who participate in Lonsdale’s Monday through Thursday community school program are a perfect match. Erika Long coordinates programming for the 60 students who attend Green Magnet community school five days a week. She’s en-

Photo by S. Clark enough hours in the day. “You’re sort of a jackof-all-trades in this job, especially during the pilot year,” she says. Fritts would like to have more volunteers who can develop relationships with students and families. “My job is to put people in the same room,” he said, citing the school’s involvement with Big Brothers Big Sisters. Green Magnet’s biggest challenge came from a late start at the end of October after kids were already involved in other programs, Long says. While the school has offered workshops on truancy and test-taking, it hasn’t yet been able to offer creative programming for adults. She is also concerned because many of her volunteers are college students who will finish their semester in early May. In spite of the problems, Long can tell that community school participants have become more engaged. “The kids come in excited to see the volunteers. They show me excitement about what’s going on in school, and they’re interested.” The Great Schools Partnership operates the new community schools. (Pond Gap’s program is run by UT.)
It subcontracts with Project Grad at Lonsdale and with the YMCA at Green Magnet. Those programs had been in place for several years, says Great Schools president Buzz Thomas, and aligning existing community resources is part of the nonprofit’s strategy for managing community schools. Since there was no program in place at Norwood, Great Schools manages it directly. Thomas says this has been a learning year, with coordinators “making it up as we went. This summer, we’ll be better prepared to train new coordinators.” He anticipates adding four more community schools in the fall. The initiative received $500,000 from Knox County Schools last year, and the same amount is included in this year’s budget. Those funds cover transportation, security officers and afterschool tutoring provided by Knox County teachers. Thomas hopes community schools will also be added to the city budget. “This is not just about kids doing better is school. It’s also a development initiative. It’s about healthy families and safer neighborhoods, things the city of Knoxville is very interested in.”
Hallerin Hilton Hill presented the keynote address, entertaining guests with a message to “bloom” and “bark.” Blooming, said Hill, is showing up and creating activity and light while barking is creating community.
‘Bloom and bark’ Keynote speaker for the Dogwood Arts Festival Opening Day Luncheon Hallerin Hilton Hill probably knew there were examples already present when he presented his charge to the guests to “bloom and bark.” One was a gentleman and his daughter sitting at the back table. Hill entertained guests at the luncheon, held this year on April 10 at Campbell Station Park, with a challenge to show up for festival events to create excitement and light (“bloom”) and to then gather and enjoy others participating to create community (“bark”). Sitting in the audience were Oscar Wise and his daughter, Lea Wise. Oscar Wise was co-chair of the Dogwood Arts Festival in 1986 and was involved on committees and the board prior to and after that honor. He came to the luncheon, he said, just to enjoy the day and the dogwoods and to encourage his daughter to become even more involved in the annual event. Wise remembers well his “panic moment” at the 1986 festival. It happened at the Dogwood Prayer Breakfast.

I just had to wing it.” Guests at the luncheon had to wing it if they were looking for blooming dogwoods, but Campbell Station Park was still colorful and beautiful. Flowers welcomed guests and swayed in the warm breeze, inviting the luncheon dignitaries and volunteers to come back in a few days to see the park’s full spectrum of color. Dogwoods, redbuds and azaleas in the park and on this year’s featured trail that begins at Fox Den aren’t far behind the already blooming flowers.

government Off to Dallas The formal dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library will occur Thursday, April 25, in Dallas with President Obama, President Clinton and President Bush (43) attending. Among those going from Knoxville will be U.S. District Court judge Thomas Varlan and wife Danni, Knoxville attorney Bruce Anderson and wife Monique, and this writer.
Varlan was appointed to the federal judgeship by President Bush (45) and confirmed by the Senate in 2003. ■ Former Mayor Daniel Brown will hold a fundraiser for his councilmanic re-election campaign from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, May 2, at the Beck Cultural Center on Dandridge Avenue. Brown is considered an easy winner in his re-election effort and is the second city incumbent running to host a fundraiser this election cycle. Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis held a fundraiser a few weeks ago at which Mayor Rogero endorsed his re-election. ■ It is somewhat surprising that legislation to eliminate our right to vote in the Democratic and Republican primaries for U.S. Senate got out of standing committees in both Houses of the Legislature. It actually got to the floor of the Senate last week where it was deferred to the last day of the 2013 session. It is sponsored by Sen. Frank Niceley and state Rep. Harry Brooks from Knox County. It would eliminate the party primaries for U.S. Senate candidates and have the Republican and Democratic members of the Legislature select each party’s nominees. How would this work in reality? Well, the legislation (which is still not dead) is vague. It says the lawmakers would meet in open session to select the nomi-
nees. It does not say if the voting would be by secret ballot or open voice vote. It does not say if the nominee would have to receive a majority of all the votes cast or just a plurality in case there were three or more candidates. It does not provide for any background checks or vetting which occur in a real campaign. The current Republican caucus is 70 House members and 26 senators for a total of 96. The Democratic caucus is 35 members. There is also Ken Williams, the sole independent who might not be allowed to vote in either caucus. For the Republican, 49 votes would be a majority, and 18 would be a majority for the Democrats. In both cases the House members outnumber the Senators by a margin of 3 to 1 and a nominee could easily win with no Senator of either party backing him/her. Each party would be denied the chance to assess candidates in the course of the primary campaign from Mountain City to Memphis. It would be ready-made for an unknown House member to piece together 49 or 18 votes (depending on party) to oust the incumbent Senator as their nominee and choose someone else. This bill has to rank as one of the more poorly conceived ideas put before the Legislature in recent years. Fortunately, it is on life support. Disconnecting the tubes is a good idea. ■ While the Rogero Administration has not annexed properties, it still inherits property coming into the city each year from annexations of 12 or more years back. As ownership changes on property for which lawsuits were filed, those lawsuits are dismissed. This is managed now by the city law department led by Charles Swanson. There are more than 150 lawsuits still pending so the city will continue to grow, but at a slow pace. Chattanooga could outpace Knoxville in the next few years and become the state’s third largest city.
Property Assessor Phil Ballard will speak to the Halls Republican Club, which meets Monday, April 15, at the Boys & Girls Club of Halls/Powell, 1819 Dry Gap Pike near Brickey-McCloud School. Fellowship and snacks from 6-7 p.m. with meeting at 7. Reappraisal notices will be sent out April 17. The Property Assessor’s Office will hold informal appeals hearings for two weeks beginn ing April 22.

More roads, less money
Prepare for a head-on collision as Tennessee runs out of money to maintain and improve the state’s system of roads and highways. The problem is obvious; the solution is not so clear. Mike Edwards, president of the K nox v ille C h a mb e r, will appear on a panel this week at the Baker Center (see sidebar). He calls it “a Edwards chance to let everybody talk.” Higher gas prices, coupled with increased fuel efficiency, point to decreased gasoline consumption. Yet the state’s transportation agency (TDOT) is funded by a per-gallon tax on gasoline. “We have more people
Sandra Clark driving more miles and the cost of oil-based asphalt has increased,” Edwards said in an interview last week. “Bridges are in bad repair and big trucks on the interstates aren’t helping. The state gasoline tax was last adjusted in 1989 and the federal gasoline tax in 1994.” Yet Tennessee is ahead of many states because of a discipline maintained over years of both Democratic and Republican legislative majorities. Tennessee does not borrow money to build roads. Edwards called the programs in many states “a Ponzi scheme” in which cur-
rent revenue goes to pay debt for previous road projects. “Our bridges must be maintained,” he said. “And a road has a fi xed life, based on slope (how well it drains) and usage. Say that’s 12 years. Then we would need to surface 1/12 of our roads every year.” Edwards said he’s no expert and was probably added to the panel to speak for businesses. He reflected: “Ike (President Dwight D. Eisenhower) raised gas taxes by 1/3 to build the interstates. And look what that did for commerce.” “Yeah,” I laughed. “Especially since the interstate system was presented as a national defense program – a way to move troops.” Reckon anyone has thought of fixing bridges and roads through the Department of Homeland Security?
Baker Center forum A forum ominously called “Taxes, Green Vehicles and the Death of Tennessee Transportation” is set for 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, in the Toyota Auditorium of the Baker Center at UT. Baker Scholars Eric Dixon and Caleb Williford will moderate the panel, with members: Kevin Bakewell, AAA; Mark
Burton, UT Transportation Research Center; Mike Edwards, Knoxville Chamber; John Schroer, TDOT commissioner; Kent Starwalt, TN Road Builders; Dave Huneryager, TN Trucking Association; Matt Murray, UT Baker Center and Center for Business & Economic Research.
Stacey’s world On April 2, Jay Leno got his biggest laugh line of the night at the expense of the Tennessee General Assembly: “Tennessee lawmakers have proposed a new piece of legislation that will penalize low income families by reducing their welfare benefits if their children perform poorly in school, as opposed to what happens to children of wealthy families who perform poorly in school – they become Tennessee lawmakers.” Maybe somebody in Nashville was embarrassed, but not Stacey Campfield, who had embedded the Leno monolog on his blog, Camp4U, by midday April 3. Any publicity is good publicity in Stacey’s world, and in its service, he’s been hitting hot button issues and blogging about them since his earliest days in the General Assembly, starting with his attempt to join the Black Caucus his rookie year in the state House and quickly moving into fathers’ rights, abortion, gun rights, birtherism, nullification, heterosexual sex, homosexual sex, sex education and Sex Week. Now a senator, Campfield’s carried more sexrelated bills than Bubba Gump’s got shrimp. But nothing except his misinformed ramblings about the origin of AIDS has gotten him more attention than the “Oliver Twist Bill,”
Betty Bean which would cut off Temporary Assistance to Families payments for recipients whose children fail to maintain satisfactory progress in school. He rolled it through committee despite impassioned pleas from clergy and children’s advocates who say it’s inhumane. Last week he deferred it to summer study after opposition from Gov. Bill Haslam and others including staunchly conservative Rep. Todd Gardenhire of Chattanooga. Campfield says he wants to end the cycle of generational poverty. And of course he’s blogged about it: “There is a solution for this “grave indignity” perpetrated against them. Don’t apply for the money. There are plenty of others who would be happy to do what it takes to take their place.” A prudent lawmaker might have shut down the blog after getting sued for libel after falsely accusing a 2008 Democratic House candidate of being a convicted felon. But not the intrepid Stacey, who launched Camp4U on a computer issued to him shortly after being elected. In a deposition given in
the office of former candidate Roger Byrge’s lawyer David Dunaway, Campfield said the purpose of Camp4U is to inform constituents of what’s really going on in Nashville. Under close questioning, he admitted that he has collected campaign contributions via a Camp4U PayPal link. That link is no longer there. Neither is the innuendo about Byrge, which he took down but never apologized for or retracted (he blames his source, House GOP Caucus chair Glen Casada).
Knox projects Knox County Commission will consider in April contracts for: ■ Schaad Road: resurfacing from Pleasant Ridge Road to Knoxville city limits, estimated cost $122,900 with 75 percent funding from TDOT ■ West Beaver Creek Drive: resurfacing from Clinton Highway to Central Avenue Pike, estimated cost $329,900 with 75 percent funding from TDOT ■ Hendrons Chapel Road: from Chapman Highway to Kimberlin Heights Road, an estimated cost $263,325 with 75 percent funding from TDOT ■ Solway Road: resurfacing from Hardin Valley Road to Oak Ridge Highway, estimated cost $317,600 with 75 percent funding from TDOT ■ Roundabouts: at Bob Gray and Mabry Hood/ Hickey; at Bob Gray and Bob Kirby; and at Northshore Drive and Choto Road, construction contract with the Rogers Group for $1,776,782.28 of which $416,491.49 will be reimbursed to Knox County for utility line relocation.
When Dunaway pressed him about using state property to defame Byrge, Campfield had trouble differentiating between his personal property and that which is government owned: Q: “So the taxpayers have been furnishing you with a computer since 2005 for Camp4U?” A: “No.” Q: “Who pays for that computer?” A: “The state.” So, if Byrge prevails, is the state of Tennessee an accomplice, or merely an enabler?

New building codes go ‘green’ Farragut’s fire and building codes are getting an update to get in step with national trends. Aldermen Ron Honken, Jeff Elliott and Bob Markli attended a workshop by the town staff prior to Thursday’s meeting where new ordinances were passed on first reading. New energy code standards are the biggest change, and some builders have found that their structures aren’t as energy efficient as they thought.
Suzanne Foree Neal
Codes official John Householder presented a couple of energy tests. The blower door test involves a device that fits a door opening and, when turned on, can test the pres-
sure outside and inside. A leak will show up. Householder said leaky duct work is another energy waster, with one of the biggest culprits being duct work that is not properly sealed. “You can run post-construction tests to see if a system is leaking. Duct systems are designed to put air where you want it. A duct blaster can test to find leaks,” said Householder. While these tests will be
required and phased in over a three-year period for new construction, they can be done on older homes. Community Development Director Ruth Hawk said the requirements may add $8,000 to $10,000 or more to new construction, depending on square footage. The payback in savings takes seven to eight years. “I have done lots to my house with insulation, doors and windows and would have liked to have had that
$8,000 investment on the front end. I’ve spent more than that on my house.” Energy Star builders are already building to higher standards which makes for a quieter house, cuts down on allergies and offers other bonuses for homebuyers, Householder said. Fire Marshal Dan Johnson said the biggest change in fire codes has to do with fire walls. This becomes more critical as the town approves more multi-story commercial buildings. Fire walls must be enhanced between units and, in the case of multi-story
buildings, in the ceilings. While the International Building Code has a section dealing with sprinklers in townhouses and single-family dwellings, the town will substitute its own wording. Johnson said new products are coming on the market that will make sprinklers in homes easier to install at a lower cost. The ordinances will be on the agenda at the next Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting for a final reading. BOMA meets the second and fourth Thursday of each month at 7 p.m. at Town Hall.
Honken wants town support of Innovation Valley By Suzanne Foree Neal Green Mountain Coffee Roasters Inc. has done more than give folks a jolt of joe in the morning. It has brought 1,000 employees and a capital investment of millions of dollars to Knox County, and it continues to grow.
Doug Lawyer, vice president of economic development for the Knoxville Chamber, presented an update on the Knoxville Oak Ridge Innovation Valley to the Farragut town administrator and three aldermen prior to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting April 11. Photos by Suzanne F. Neal That’s the kind of results the Knoxville Oak Ridge Innovation Valley, a program supported by the Knoxville Chamber, likes to brag about. Rhonda Rice, executive vice president of the Chamber, and Doug Lawyer, vice president of economic development, gave Farragut town administrator David Smoak and aldermen Ron Honken, Bob Markli and Jeff Elliott an overview of the progress the program has made. Their PowerPoint presentation preceded the April 11 meeting of the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen. Rice said the Innovation Valley program has brought 10,266 net new fulltime jobs to the region. Rice also reminded the town officials that the program was launched in 2008, about three weeks before the economy tanked. The count doesn’t include retail or fast-food jobs. Innovation Valley includes Knox County, Blount Partnership, Loudon County Economic Development Agency, Tellico Reservoir Development Agency, The Roane Alliance and Oak Ridge Economic Partnership. Rice said the program is working on its five-year plan and Innovation Valley 2.0. Honken said he would like to see Farragut included in Innovation Valley in some way. “We need our name on the list and a place at the table,” said Honken. “The town of Farragut is foolish not to be involved.” He said the town could contribute around $10,000 to make that happen. With a lot of undeveloped land on the town’s north side of Interstate 40/75, Farragut might have something to offer, said Honken. Lawyer and Rice also pointed out another success story in Del Conca, an Italian tile manufacturer that has pumped $75 million into the regional economy after locating in Loudon County.
“Even when companies locate in surrounding counties, everyone benefits,” Lawyer said. “We sometimes compete with cities twice as big,” Rice said. “We go all over the country to make sure people know about us. We’re getting more brand recognition nationally than locally, and that’s a very nice compliment.” When a company calls to express an interest in the region, Rice says staff may have as little as two hours to put together a presentation. “If they contact you, they have already done their preliminary research,” she said, adding that it is key to have possible locations identified and ready to promote. She added that keeping existing businesses happy is also important. “Never forget that your businesses are being recruited,” Rice said. “You

asked why Knox County didn’t get the Volkswagen plant instead of Chattanooga. “It would take about 28 West Town malls with parking lots lined up to equal the
Volkswagen site,” he said. “We don’t have that kind of land here, and not flat land, but Volkswagen is building a distributing center next to Roane County.”

How to follow a legend Following a legendary coach is a daring high-wire act. History says there are far more missteps, slips, falls and crashes than happy landings. Robert R. Neyland? Harvey Robinson didn’t want to be head coach of Tennessee football in 1953 but accepted the call and tried to pick up where the General left off. He lasted two seasons. Paul “Bear” Bryant? Ray Perkins might have made it but that dreadful 5-6 season told Alabama boosters what they already feared, that the replacement was a mere mortal. The Crimson Tide could not tolerate human mediocrity. Perkins recovered but was never appreciated. An attractive offer from the Tampa Bay Bucs caused him to leave his alma mater.
John Wooden? Gene Bartow never accomplished perfection but had a very good record in two seasons at UCLA. He did not enjoy his work. Gene discovered unreasonable expectations and unsavory happenings behind the scenes, packed his bags and moved to Alabama-Birmingham. Bobby Knight? I didn’t even remember who was next after Indiana ﬁred Knight. I had to look it up. The answer is Mike Davis. Tough act to follow.
Pat Summitt? Replacing one of the greatest coaches ever, historic ambassador of women’s basketball, was a monumental challenge compounded by the departure of ﬁve Tennessee regulars. Holly Warlick, 54, jumped at the opportunity. Pat passed the torch and handed Holly her whistle. The transition was not uncomfortable. The two had been partners almost forever. In the beginning, Holly was a track star at Bearden High. She came to UT on a track scholarship and walked on for baskets. She became Summit’s threetime all-American guard (1977-80). Holly went away for a few minutes, came back when called and was a very capable and totally loyal Summitt
The harder half They sent some Pharisees and followers of Herod to bait him, hoping to catch him saying something incriminating. They came up and said, “Tell us:… Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar or not?” He knew it was a trick question, and said, “Why are you playing these games with me? Bring me a coin and let me look at it.” They handed him one. “This engraving who does it look like? And whose name is on it?” “Caesar,” they said. Jesus said, “Give Caesar what is his, and give God what is his.” Their mouths hung open, speechless. (Mark 12: 13-17 “The Message”)
We complain about paying taxes; it’s right there in the Bill of Rights: “Americans have the right to complain about sending part of their hard-earned money to Washington.” Well, maybe it isn’t there in so many words, but still…. The fact that we surrender some of every
paycheck throughout the year, then take the time (and effort) to cope with a Form 1040, and actually sit down and write the check for what we owe (even if we grumble as we do so!) is a testament to the American spirit of patriotism. I love this country, and I pay my taxes. It is how we
Americans keep a government in place. I know that the system isn’t perfect, but a government is a whole heap better than anarchy. The Jews knew that, too. They may have hated Rome and despised Caesar, but there was peace throughout the Mediterranean at the time, and although the Jews had to pay taxes (sometimes exorbitant taxes!), they were allowed to live and worship as they saw fit. We read this passage and think, “Yeah, OK, so I’ll pay my taxes already and make Caesar happy! And I’ll go to church, too, so that God gets God’s por-
the boat. That isn’t right. There was a lot of yelling and jumping around and running up and down the sidelines to get her message across. All this was punctuated with shrill whistling. It sounded like shift change at the factory. A few other bad days encroached but Holly Warlick walked that high wire and led her team to the SEC championship. It reached the Elite Eight in the big tournament. Some of us were disappointed with the ending. Guard Meighan Simmons summed up the hurt of falling short of the Final Four. “Holly deserved it.” Hart got it right. The coach has justiﬁed her promotion. Tennessee has recruited boldly. The future is bright. Holly and the legend are forever linked.
assistant for 27 seasons. All that made her part owner of eight NCAA championships. Tennessee hung Holly’s No. 22 from the arena rafters. The Women’s Hall of Fame bestowed full honors. God gave her a star for doing her best as acting coach for “Season Impossible,” last season when Pat was ill but still on the bench. About this time last April, Dave Hart rewarded Holly with the ofﬁcial assignment and a salary of $485,000. She assembled an excellent staff and generated some excitement but there were doubts. Southeastern Conference coaches, asked to vote in a preseason poll, smiled and picked Tennessee to ﬁnish ﬁfth. Holly did not ﬂee. Tennessee lost the opener at Chattanooga. Holly was shocked but hung in there. Injuries hit hard but the new coach stayed steady in

tion as well.” But there is the rub. What exactly is God’s portion? A lot of people flinch at the notion of tithing. And maybe Jesus was talking about money in that portion of his statement too: “Give Caesar his taxes and God His tithe.” Except for one thing. The words of C. S. Lewis keep running through my head. Possibly the most breathtaking, frightening description of what it really means to become God’s man or God’s woman is described in this paragraph from Lewis’ “Mere Christianity:” “Christ says ‘Give me All. I don’t want so much of your time and so much of your money and so much of your work: I want You. I have not come to torment your natural self, but to kill it. No half-measures are any good. I don’t want to
cut off a branch here and a branch there. I want to have the whole tree down….The moment you put yourself in My hands, that is what you are in for. Nothing less, or other, than that. You have free will, and if you choose, you can push Me away. But if you do not push Me away, understand that I am going to see this job through. Whatever suffering it may cost you in your earthly life, whatever inconceivable purification it may cost you after death, whatever it costs Me, I will never rest, nor let you rest, until you are literally perfect — until my Father can say without reservation that He is well pleased with you, as He said He was well pleased with me. This I can do and will do. But I will not do anything less.’” That is the harder half. Makes paying taxes look like child’s play, doesn’t it?
News from SOS More than 75 percent of the proposed $419.86 million Knox County Schools budget will be spent on “instruction and instructional support,” primarily to compensate teachers and specialized staff. Enhancing educator compensation to attract and retain talented teachers requires competitive pay. In the 2011-12 Tennessee Education Association proﬁle, average classroom teacher pay in Knox County ranked 35th among the state’s 136 school districts, more than $10,000 less than top-ranked Oak Ridge. Nearby high-paying systems are Alcoa (second) and Maryville (ﬁfth) . To address this pay gap, $7.59 million of the $13.2 million increase will go to educator compensation, with $5.2 million to raise teachers’ base pay by 2.5 percent. The remaining $7.59 million of the increase will cover: moving middle and high school principals to 12-month contracts, raising nonteaching (“classiﬁed”) staff salaries by 1 percent, sustaining Advance-PerformEXcel, the strategic compensation system that rewards teachers for meeting speciﬁed performance goals, and increasing stafﬁng for the new Northshore Elementary, schools that acquired more students in rezoning and during the Vine Middle redesign. The one decrease from last year is $300,000 in central administration staff.

Art for God’s house By Suzanne Foree Neal Stitch-by-stitch a group of women will add beauty to their church by marrying art and function. Pew kneelers at St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church in Farragut have seen better days, so member and needlepoint enthusiast Lois Threlkeld decided it was time for an update. During a trip to England last summer she photographed a number of needlepoint kneelers in the churches she visited. That sparked her mission to do the same for her church. As Threlkeld put colored pencils to paper to design the patterns, she also sent out a call for volunteers to help. That call was answered by several volunteers, some who are experienced needlepointers, while others are trying needlepoint for the first time. Threlkeld shared sample stitches on framed canvas with the Rev. Donna Brown, Audrey McKelvey, Marcia Williams, Debra Meade and Jenny Dyer at a recent planning session. The church was built in 1987 in a very traditional Anglican style, Threlkeld said. “It’s very plain, and we need some church icons to enhance the worship and bring in some symbolism,” she said, adding that needlepoint pieces will help accomplish that goal. “I like something other than all basic weave stitches. There are several different stitches you can use. Wear has to be taken into consideration, because I’m

Debra Meade, the Rev. Donna Brown and Marcia Williams are studies in concentration as Lois Threlkeld, right, explains the pros and cons of a particular stitch considered for use in needlepoint kneelers.

Neal not sure we’ll be here to repair these in 25 years.” “Order extra yarn for repairs later,” said Brown, a retired minister who considers herself a novice needlepointer. She is the official “kneeler tester,” telling the group that if her knee implants don’t hurt when she kneels, the kneelers will pass inspection. Threlkeld searched far and wide for the best supplier of wool thread, and the group debated color options, stitches, which canvas would be easiest for all to use, how many stitches per inch and how plush they wanted the kneelers to be. The right color was one that both fit the design and took into account symbolism. “Sarum blue is a very historic color and is seen in a lot of the cathedrals in Europe,” Threlkeld said.

Leonard’s rarelyknown legacy MALCOLM’S CORNER | Malcolm Shell Former Farragut Mayor Bob Leonard left many legacies, including a park that bears his name. But one legacy he left is known by only a few. Leonard was responsible for the creation of the Farragut Folklife Museum. Without his vision, the town would probably not have one of its prime assets. But his vision for the future has resulted in one of the premier small museums in the Southeast. The story begins in 1986, when then-Gov. Lamar Alexander challenged all towns and small hamlets to come up with something
unique in celebration of Homecoming ’86, the 190th birthday of our state. The Folklife Museum was Farragut’s answer. Leonard, who was then the town’s mayor, initially thought that the project would be temporary, lasting perhaps several months. But the town’s positive response to the museum was overwhelming, and it became a permanent attraction. Leonard appointed Mary Nell McFee as museum director and Doris Woods Owens, who had recently returned from a teaching career in Florida, as assistant
director. Mary Nell retired from the project after a year and Doris assumed the helm and guided it through its fledgling years. Today, two of the museum’s galleries are named in honor of Mary Nell and Doris. To get the project off the ground, citizens were asked to donate anything of historical value to the museum, and as a result, a diversity of artifacts became the base of the museum’s inventory. But the going was slow, and the facilities in the old building behind the Campbell’s Station Inn were quite
inadequate. In fact, it was a former garage where the Russell family parked their dairy trucks. After several months, Leonard and Owens learned that a large collection of Admiral David Farragut memorabilia might be available for purchase. The seller was contacted and subsequently offered the collection at a price of $80,000. Led by Mayor Leonard, the town solicited funds from citizens and was able to collect about $10,000, far short of the amount needed. Part of the collection was purchased – items determined to be of greatest value – and organizers tried to get the seller to reserve the remainder of the collection until additional funds could be raised. The seller agreed, but after several months, asked that the rest of the collection be purchased. At that point, Leonard was able to get a line item in the town’s budget to purchase the entire collection.
sulted in today’s beautiful museum. I have a passion for museums, and when traveling I always try to visit all the local ones. And as I exit each, I realize how fortunate we are to have a museum of the professional quality that is seldom found in other small museums. Leonard served on the Farragut Folklife Museum guidance committee from its inception and was awarded an honorary life membership for his service. As a committee member, he offered insight and guidance that was important in shaping the museum’s policies and procedures. After his retirement, he regularly served as a docent, entertaining visitors with his knowledge. His wife, Marie, carries on the tradition as museum docent, and through her, the museum’s founding family is still a part of the Farragut Folklife Museum.
Bob Leonard Then-Vice Mayor Eddy Ford, and his wife Linda, drove a rental truck to Washington to pick up the rest of the collection. Eddy later recalled that, although they were exhausted, they were hesitant to stop at a motel because they were fearful someone might steal the items. Without Leonard’s vision, the Farragut Folklife Museum might have been a temporary attraction. But that line item ultimately re-
Leadership for the future By Sandra Clark Jim McIntyre’s legacy as superintendent of schools will be the people he recruited, mentored and promoted to leadership positions in the system. Graduates of the Leadership Academy are already making a difference. Expect more impact in years to come. Dr. Autumn Cyprès leads the program at UT, assisted by principal-in-residence Betty Sue Sparks, a retired administrator with KCS. Cyprès introduced 10 new fellows to the school board last week. Fellows will work with a mentor principal four days each week and will attend classes at UT on the fifth day during the 15-month program.
McIntyre called the program “our pipeline to continued great leadership.” Meet this year’s cohort: Brad Corum has worked as an assistant principal at West Valley Middle School for four years. Previously, he served as an assistant principal with both Karns and Powell middle schools. Tara Howell-Spikes has been a lead teacher at Mount Olive Elementary School and is a district-wide first grade mentor teacher. Christopher James is a special ed teacher at Fulton High School. Shelly McGill works as an assistant principal at Carter Elementary School. She has been with the Knox County Schools since 2006
where she began at BrickeyMcCloud Elementary School. Dexter Murphy has been at Pond Gap Elementary School since 2009 where he is a fifth grade teacher and mentor teacher. Megan O’Dell is an assistant principal at BrickeyMcCloud Elementary. She holds a Master of Arts degree in Teaching from Tusculum College and has served in various roles with the Knox County Schools since 2004. J. Scott Reed works as a lead teacher for Knox County Schools. Previously, he worked in special education at Richard Yoakley Alternative School. Melissa Stowers works as a graduation coach at Carter High School. She
has been with Knox County Schools since 2004 when she began as an English instructor at West High School. Janene Ward works with South College in its
School of Education as an instructor. She holds a master’s degree from the University of California, Los Angeles. Steven York has been with West Valley Middle
School since 2008. He is a sixth grade science teacher and team leader. Previously, he worked at a middle school in South Carolina for five years.

NEWS FROM CHRISTIAN ACADEMY OF KNOXVILLE
Murals with a message Returning from spring break, Christian Academy of Knoxville elementary school students walked into a very different-looking building. In fact, muralist Gale Hinton worked tirelessly over a nine-day stretch to transform the building from its plain, white cinder block walls to an artistic representation of the elementary school’s curriculum. “I think Gale’s work has completely transformed this building,” elementary principal David McFalls said. “Our teachers generated ideas based on our curricular themes, I put pencil to paper, and she really breathed life into it. I couldn’t be happier with the end result.”
Muralist Gale Hinton stands with CAK elementary school principal David McFalls in the newly-painted halls of the elementary school.
■ CAK’s Spring Block Party will be held 4:30 to 6:30 p.m. Thursday, April 18, in the parking lot between the soccer and baseball fields. All are invited to enjoy an afternoon of fun as we dunk, pie and joust our favorite coaches and administrators. The event is followed by two sports events: CAK softball versus Grace Christian Academy at 6 p.m., and CAK boys soccer versus Webb at 7 p.m. Thanks go to Steve Denny, Donald Snider, Ried Estus, Rusty Bradley, Jamie Petrik, Eddy Powers and others who are participating to make this a fantastic and fun event! ■ CAK’s High School Musical Theater program will present “The Wizard of Oz” by L. Frank Baum. Performances are scheduled for 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Friday and Saturday, April 25, 26 and 27; and 11 a.m. Saturday, April 27. Reserved floor seating is $15 or $10, and stadium seating is $5. Info or for tickets: cakshowseating@ yahoo.com or 690-4721 ext. 136.
Johnny Appleseed is just one figure from American history to grace CAK’s elementary school halls.
When viewing the murals, look for these highlights: ■ Warrior Frog serves as your guide through the building. ■ Hinton said she will always remember when “One nation, under God” was added to the Pledge of Allegiance, so she wanted to make that come alive at CAK. ■ A few phrases are written backwards so they can be read in the mirror, “God Loves You!” ■ Hinton said she painted the scene of Jesus walking on water from Jesus’ perspective. “I thought it would be better to see it through His eyes.” ■ Hinton thought that as parents sat in the lobby they could be reminded of the reason why they sent their children to CAK, so she painted the column in the lobby pictured here. The address on the mailbox is 4316 God is Love Lane (John 3:16). Info: www.galehinton.com
Hinton said she worked nine 12-hour days on the project, which utilized all the interior hallway walls of the building. Once she was involved, Hinton said she couldn’t resist painting on a few of the exterior hallway walls as well. She used wall paint and did everything freehand. “I love what I do,” said Hinton, who has painted murals for more than 40 years. “And especially with this job, it was almost like therapy for me. I am a Christian, I have a very strong faith, and to be able to put on the walls what you believe has been amazing. I’ve painted thousands of schools but you’re not always at liberty to paint what you believe.” Because it was such a labor of love and testimony of Hinton’s faith, she joked that she maybe should have signed God’s name to the ﬁnished project instead of her own. “There is not a day that I go into a project that I do not pray all the way to the job,” Hinton said, “and I always say a prayer before I start. I believe it works!”
Scenes from Bible stories, like Moses receiving the Ten Commandments, bedeck the halls of CAK’s elementary school.
■ CAK’s Early Learning Program will offer “Bugs and Butterflies: We have new life in Jesus Christ” 9 to 10:30 a.m. Friday, April 26. The program is open to preschool-age children and their parents. Activities include making edible “dirt cups,” bugs and butterfly crafts, story time and a bounce house. RSVP to mmiller@ cakmail.org by Monday, April 22.

National author visits Concord Christian School By Sara Barrett
Concord Christian School 5th grader William Mason holds a poster signed by one of his favorite authors, Jenny L. Cote. William said he would highly recommend the authorâ€™s book â€œThe Arc, the Reed and the Fire Cloud.â€?
Award-winning author Jenny L. Cote visited students at Concord Christian School recently, not only for a meet and greet, but also to talk about finding inspiration for her stories. Cote is currently working on a documentary about researching her books. Instead of sitting in a room with a computer, she goes out into the world. She said she considers research the most important part of writing. A favorite experience she shared is spending two nights in C.S. Lewisâ€™ house. Cote offered words of encouragement for students considering writing as a career. â€œIf you want to be an author and you get rejected (by a publisher), they are not rejecting you,â€? said Cote. â€œIt is God rejecting them,â€? because the situation is not right.â€? Cote has ties to East Tennessee. After leaving Concord Christian School, she traveled to Morristown to celebrate her grandmotherâ€™s 99th birthday.

NEWS FROM CONSTRUCTION PLUS
Looking ahead after 25 years By Sandra Clark Sandy Loy is wrapping up the 25th anniversary celebration for Construction Plus Inc. by looking toward the future. “I’ve ﬁnally ﬁgured it out,” he says from his high-tech ofﬁce at 601 Reliability Circle in the Koontz-Loy-Taylor ofﬁce complex.
Construction Plus Inc. has earned ■ The 2010 National Small Business of the Year Blue Ribbon Award at the Small Business Summit of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce ■ The Pinnacle Award for Business Excellence from the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce
Sandy Loy CCM Twenty-five years might not seem long to an entrepreneur who started a business out of high school. But Sandy earned a bachelor’s degree (with honors) in architecture from UT in 1976. He followed that with a master’s degree in civil engineering, also from UT, in 1982. Starting as a structural engineer, by age 29 he was director of engineering services for TVA. He served as regional engineer for the American Institute of Steel Construction as well as project manager for a top 100 construction firm. He advanced to director of development and construction for Belz Enterprises in Memphis before returning home to found Construction Plus in 1988. “The business has evolved, but I’ve found the right balance,” he says. Starting as a general contractor, Construction Plus Inc. boomed during the 2003-05 period as the company practiced designbuild and later construction management. “I’ve had partners and as many as 40 employees,” he says. “Water finds its own level and so have I.”
■ Three School of the Year awards from the Tennessee School Boards Association ■ The Enterpriser Award for innovation ■ The EXCEL Award as one of the 25 fastest growing companies in East Tennessee
Construction Plus is smaller now and more focused with a core of key employees and Sandy Loy’s personal involvement in every project. Glenda Tipton, director of accounting and purchasing, has worked at Construction Plus Inc. for 15 years. Dan Guidali has been a project manager with CPI for 10 years. And Eddie Elder has been a job superintendent with CPI for 12 years. “The team is strong because we’ve worked together for so long,” says Loy. “We have a strong network of subcontractors. I treat everybody as a partner.”
Panther Sark Office Building built for Dr. Jerry Fussell in 1991 and 1998. Construction Plus Inc. is now restoring the building back to “as-built” quality with new infrastructure technology for energy management and security.
Advice for a young person starting out in commercial construction? “Get as much technical education as you can,” says Loy. “And also take business courses. That’s critical to success. It’s not enough to know the task. You must have business acumen. “Learn how important customer service is.” Loy’s website features him explaining that many contractors can make a good presentation, but “nobody will outperform Construction Plus when it comes to providing service to our clients.” Finally, Sandy says construction management is the future. “Over the next 15 years, construction management, done right, will be the predominant delivery mechanism (for new construction).” Construction management is a 30-year-old industry and Sandy Loy got an early start. He holds Certiﬁed Construction Manager (CCM) certiﬁcation number 1432 nationally and was the ﬁrst building contractor in East Tennessee to earn the CCM designation. Put simply, the process pairs a contractor and client in a collaborative relationship to save money while ensuring client satisfaction. Clients no longer worry about a contractor cutting corners to satisfy a low bid. The
KLT Office Complex
construction manager works with subcontractors to get the best results for the best price. Loy said the key is professionalism. “You don’t want a contractor to put construction management at the top of a contract simply to avoid a competitive bid. The selection should be based on real professional qualiﬁcations. Eventually construction managers will be licensed separately. “I’ve taken both and the CCM exam is 100 times harder than the general contractor licensing exam,” says Loy. The future is bright and the “R” word (retirement) is not in the picture – for both professional and personal reasons. “The 2008 crash extended my career,” he says with a smile. Loy is raising a granddaughter, and his face lights up when he talks about her. Additionally, Sandy Loy simply likes what he does. He enjoys the relationships he’s built with the people he works with and with his clients. “When you work for a com-
pany, you’ve got one boss. When you work for yourself, you’ve got a lot of bosses and you’ve got to like them. My clients are my bosses and I love the relationships I have with them. That’s what I do best.” Technology has changed the construction business. Loy expects to go paperless this year. “We’re all on iPads, and we’ve probably saved our clients $60,000 in printing costs,” he says. “Everybody (on the job) does not need a full set of drawings.” He uses SharePoint software to post drawings for subcontractors. He sends a text when a drawing changes and the sub uses a password to access the new drawing. “Now it takes a millisecond to transmit (and document receipt of) data that used to take days,” he says. “This means I can be out in the ﬁeld more and can manage more projects simultaneously.” Kudos to Sandy Loy and the folks at Construction Plus Inc. for a successful 25 years.

Where are the big banks?
Rotary speaker offers a look at the players By Suzanne Foree Neal Tony Carasso, president of the Knoxville region for Jefferson Federal Bank, gave a reality check on banking for members of the Rotary Club of Farragut as he spoke to the membership on April 10. Today’s banks aren’t your parents’ banks, he said, and some might say your grandparents’ banks have disappeared like rabbit ears on a television. Banks are making money, he continued, but your CDs are earning a puny return. The federal government is dictating those CD rates as it tries to stimulate the economy. “That’s good news for borrowers, bad news for savers,” Carasso explained. “The Federal Reserve adjusts rates with economic ups and downs. When there’s worry
about the economy and it’s anemic, rates stay low. When inflation flips in and the economy gets better, rates will go up.” And while banks may be making money, many didn’t survive the economic turmoil. In 1985, there were 18,000 banks in the U.S., said Carasso. In 2011, about 7,000. “The government let smaller banks close, but the big banks can’t fail. In my opinion, the government is letting the numbers fall because it’s easier to control.” The U.S. has four trillion-dollar players: Bank of America (with 2.3 trillion), Chase Morgan (2.1), Citi Group (2) and Wells Fargo (1.8). The top nine banks in the country control 50 percent of the money compared to 17 percent in 1970.
In the East Tennessee region, Carasso said the five largest banks are Bank of America, US Bank (with 282 billion), SunTrust (171 billion), BB&T (163 billion) and Regions (167 billion). While the recent recession hit hard in some parts of the country, Tennessee fared better. Only BankEast failed in East Tennessee. “As bankers, we never want to see this happen,” Carasso said. “It’s bad for business.” While Tennessee doesn’t have any trillion-dollar banks headquartered here, it does have five banks headquartered in the state in the billion-dollar range: First Tennessee BankMemphis (with 25 billion), Pinnacle Bank-Nashville (4.8 billion), First Bank-

Lexington (2.2 billion), Home Federal-Knoxville (2 billion) and FSG BankChattanooga (1.1 billion). Banks headquartered here include Home Federal and million-dollar banks Clayton (716 million) and American Trust Bank (128 million).
School board salutes contributor The school board has recognized efforts of the Knoxville TVA Employees Credit Union to support Knox County Schools. Scott Bacon, supervisor of Partners in Education told the board that the credit union has been helping since 1987 when it adopted Ball Camp Elementary School. “Since those early days at Ball Camp, the credit union has expanded its presence with the PIE program across the county to also include partnerships with Beaumont, East Knox County and Sterchi elementary schools,” he said. Contributions include: ■ Incentives to reward
student achievement. ■ Support for school staff, including supplies and feeding staff members on an in-service day. ■ Display of student art in branches and invitations to student choral groups to perform at annual meetings. ■ Volunteers for countywide school events including Smokies Safe Kids Day on May 8. ■ Personal finance information for high school students across the county, coordinated by marketing specialist Kristina Howard. ■ Donation of “large ticket items” as top prizes for 8th graders who attend Career Day.
Carasso said the inflated housing market was the source of the recession. “Home values increased 5 to 10 percent annually, and people felt wealthier. Everyone, even bankers, thought it wouldn’t end. “Prices would escalate with smaller down payments required, and banks would accept riskier loans. The government was pushing banks to make loans. Home values were 70 percent over-valued in some places. “When the market started to fall, everyone got scared, and banks stopped making loans. It was a hard fall.” Today’s climate is a return to the old days when banks looked at assets and your ability to repay a loan. “Banks want to verify information,” said Carasso. “Trust, but verify. Equity is important.” ■ The Rotary Club of Farragut is joining in presenting Cancer Screening 2013 at 7 p.m., Monday,
April 22, in the visitor’s conference room just outside the main entrance to UTMedical Center. Admission and parking are free. Noted cancer authority Dr. Rudy Navari will discuss screenings for breast, prostate, colon, ovarian and lung cancer in otherwise healthy adults. He will cover recommendations and controversies and offer guidance to help patients and their physicians reach a decision. A question and answer session will follow his presentation. The program is the latest in a series offered by the local Notre Dame Club. Other co-sponsors include the UT Cancer Institute and the Blessed John XXIII University Catholic Center at UT. Navari is clinical director of the Harper Cancer Institute and holds joint appointments with Indiana University School of Medicine and the University of Notre Dame.

■ Howard has also served on the PIE Advisory Board and is currently the vice president of the board. “She has been a valuable member of that group and its work to support the Knox County Schools,” Bacon said.
Rodney A. Fields has been named the managing partner of the law firm Lewis, King, Krieg & Fields Waldrop in Knoxville. Fields joined the firm in 1991 following graduation from UT College of Law, and he became a shareholder in 1997. He serves on the firm’s board of directors and manages its business practice group. Lisa Ramsay Cole is the firm’s president and managing shareholder. She became managing partner of the firm’s Nashville office in 2011 and will retain that
position. A Nashville resident, she graduated from Bethel College in 1987 and from UT College of Law in 1993. Cole Fields is active in professional organizations. He and wife Lea Ann Fields have two children, Kelsey and Kristin. They reside in West Knoxville. Deborah C. Stevens resigned as the firm’s president and managing partner when she was appointed by Gov. Bill Haslam in March as a Circuit Court judge, replacing Judge Wheeler A. Rosenbalm who retired.

Road projects are the winners in Farragut’s capital investment plans By Suzanne Foree Neal Priorities have been listed and numbers crunched. Now it’s up to the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen to decide how the town’s money will be spent for the 2014 Capital Investment Plan (CIP). Road projects and greenways lead the way. Park improvements bring up the rear. The biggest item on the budget is putting $1 million into the land acquisition fund. Although improvements on Campbell Station Road from Parkside Drive to Jamestowne Boulevard have long been finished, town administrator David Smoak told board members at a workshop before the April 11 meeting that $200,000 is being
held in case TDOT asks for money to tie up loose ends. The Watt Road/Kingston Pike intersection gets $35,000 this year but will get $100,000 in 2015. That’s for design work and construction on a sidewalk connection. The town will spend $40,000 for right-of-way acquisition on Everett Road, but improvements on the Everett Road section from Union to Smith roads come up empty. Union Road, however, is slated for $350,000 for planning and design; $450,000 in 2015 for right-of-way and easement acquisition and finally road construction to include bike lanes, curbs, sidewalks and pedestrian trails at a cost of
$2.5 million in the 2016 CIP budget. The board has already approved $135,000 toward an outdoor classroom adjacent to Farragut High School. Campbell Station Road won’t be widened north of Interstate 40/75 or see improvements at the intersection with Kingston Pike. The town will spend $160,000 for traffic signal enhancements to include intersection striping, preemptive devices for police and fire and devices that allow pedestrians to stop traffic flow so they can safely cross busy intersections. TDOT will supervise construction of the Kingston Pike/Willow Creek greenway at a cost to the town of $462,500. Part of
Journey to Guatemala By Anne Hart The work of Knoxville’s Interfaith Health Clinic has spread all the way to Guatemala through the efforts of its volunteer staff nurse and patient education coordinator, Carole Metz. Metz recently returned from the Central American country, which she told West Knox Rotarians is about the size of Tennessee, with much of the country at elevations of 7,000 to 10,000 feet, “so they don’t have much of a mosquito problem.” For health care professionals that is a good thing. It means that residents don’t contract mosquito-borne illnesses. The Guatemalan people do have many other prob-
Carole Metz lems, though, and one is a lack of medical care and other basic services and goods in much of the rural countryside. One surprising example Metz related is a lack of sunglasses to provide protection from
the very bright environment. Guatemala is a country steeped in the Mayan culture, where 23 dialects of the Mayan language are still spoken. Joining a group of volunteers sponsored by a Methodist Church in Maine, Metz traveled to several rural villages to visit and work in clinics. One clinic, established by a doctor from Texas, boasts an adjacent school, so residents “can be both educated and treated,” Metz said. The cost of staffing a clinic with a full-time doctor and nurse practitioner is about $13,000 a year, Metz said, adding that only about 11 percent of Guatemalans have quick access to health care.
that trail could become a boardwalk over a section of wetlands. An additional $100,000 will be spent on pedestrian/greenway connectors as the town continues its plan to connect the whole system. For now there will be no lighting, decorative or otherwise, for Concord Road, but long-range projections set aside $800,000 for that project. Smoak said TDOT is paying for the road improvements, but lighting will be the town’s responsibility. “We’ll have to have lighting, and it will be new, decorative lighting,” he noted, alluding to last year’s controversy over replacing fairly new lights on Campbell Station Road with decorative ones at what many considered a

whopping price. The only park improvement is replacing fencing at Mayor Bob Leonard Park and Anchor Park at a cost of $75,000. Total funding for all the capital projects is $2.639 million, leaving the town a cushion of $81,500. Some projects that won’t be included in the capital investment plan are: Everett Road Phase II from Smith Road to Split Rail Farm subdivision ($2 million); Evans Road improvements ($2 million); South Hobbs Road/Kingston Pike intersection ($500,000); McFee Park Phase IIIB ($3 million); McFee Park Phase IV ($1.375 million); purchase of the Russell House ($2 million) and nothing set aside for a
community center. Aldermen Jeff Elliott and Ron Honken expressed concern over McFee Park expansion projects not moving forward faster. “The cost will only go up,” Elliott said. “It would be nice if we could work out something to get it done in more bite-size pieces and get it rolling.” Honken said he would like to see some funds shifted from land acquisition to McFee Park. “It’s frustrating and disappointing to folks if they have to wait a long time for these,” said Honken. “But I think people don’t realize that the cost of some of these projects could equal our whole annual budget.” The numbers presented at the workshop can be changed and tweaked by the aldermen and mayor, with a final CIP budget being rolled into the overall town budget for 2014. The BOMA votes on the overall budget on two readings in June, with budget approval completed by June 30.

screen with an SPF 15 or greater, even on cloudy days, and reapply it every two hours, or after swimming or sweating. Always keep plenty of water on hand when you’re playing or exercising outside. Unless kids are exercising vigorously for extended periods, plain water – not sports drinks – is the best way to rehydrate.
Keep kids healthy and safe this summer (StatePoint) It’s summer, and for kids that means it’s time for sports, swimming, biking and picnics. And while active outdoor time is healthy and fun, experts say it’s crucial for parents and kids to brush up on some seasonal safety tips. According to the experts at the American Academy
of Pediatrics (AAP), the summer poses its own set of risks. In order to help parents keep kids happy, healthy and safe all summer long, they are offering these timely tips:
Sun Safety Sunburns are not only unpleasant, they are
damaging to skin health. Minimize your family’s exposure to harmful ultraviolet radiation by dressing your children (and yourself for that matter) in cotton clothing with a tight weave, sunglasses and hats with a brim or bill. Stay in the shade whenever possible and use a sun-
Drowning is a leading cause of death among children, including infants and toddlers, but parents can make swimming safer for kids with the right safety equipment, instruction and supervision. “While swimming lessons are helpful, they are not a foolproof plan. Parents should never – even for a moment – leave children alone near open bodies of water,” says Dr. Thomas K. McInerny, the 2013 president of the AAP. Home swimming pools should be surrounded by a four-foot-high, nonclimbable, four-sided
injured on trampolines annually. Encourage your child to get exercise in safer ways.
Bike Safety fence with a self-closing, self- latching gate. Parents, caregivers, and pool owners should learn CPR and keep equipment approved by the U.S. Coast Guard, such as life preservers and life jackets, at poolside.
Trampolines Even with netting, padding and adult supervision, experts say that home trampolines are dangerous. “Trampoline injuries are common, and can be potentially catastrophic,” says Dr. McInerny. “From temporarily debilitating sprains, strains and contusions to cervical spine injuries with lasting consequences, the risks associated with recreational trampoline use are easily avoided.” Thousands of people are
Children should wear a helmet on every bike ride. Accidents can happen anywhere, anytime. Get your child a helmet specific for biking. Football helmets, for example, are made to protect the head from other types of injuries. Teach your children traffic and bike safety before allowing them to bike in the street. For example, they should always ride with traffic and use hand signals. If your child doesn’t have the skills necessary to use hand signals without swerving, he or she shouldn’t be riding in the street. For more summer safety tips, visit the AAP’s website for parents, www. HealthyChildren.org. By taking proper precautions, you can maximize the fun this summer by keeping kids healthy, safe and sound.

HEALTH & LIFESTYLES NEWS FROM PARKWEST, WEST KNOXVILLE’S HEALTHCARE LEADER • TREATEDWELL.COM • 374-PARK
Single bout of diverticulitis leads to colon resection for 37-year-old Colds and ﬂu run rampant during the winter season, so when Travis Beers started feeling unwell in January, he assumed it was the same stuff his 9-year-old daughter was dealing with. As the director of materials management for Parkwest, he was helping to open Covenant Health’s new hospital in Roane County and had been working some extra long days. Although it was unusual for him to do, Beers called in sick that Friday and ﬁgured maybe resting through a three-day weekend would have him feeling good as new by Monday. But Beers didn’t make it to work as planned on Monday. By Sunday night, he was feeling so badly and had such severe lower abdominal pain that he decided to go to the ER to get it checked out. At 37 years old and generally in good health, the last thing Beers expected to hear was that he had diverticulitis; however, a CT scan conﬁrmed the diagnosis. Not only was he was surprised to ﬁnd out he had the disease, he was classiﬁed as a level three on the Hinchey scale, a commonly accepted rating scale for
and recommended colon resection surgery once the infection was under control. “Given his young age, the severity of his condition, and its containment to a relatively small section of his colon, Travis was an excellent candidate for surgery,” said Gibson. “The diseased section of his colon could be surgically removed and hopefully prevent any future problems.” After spending a week in the hospital on antibiotics to get the current episode under control, Beers returned home. “I was feeling better and I really wanted to get the new Roane hospital opened before having surgery,” said Beers. “I went back to Beers is re-stocking equipment work that following Monday since used for laparoscopic surgeries. we were only about three weeks This is the same type of device his away from the grand opening. I staff gathered in preparation for his knew I’d have to have the surgery, surgery. but it was really nice to be able to take the time for the ﬁrst episode to clear and get the new hospital colon diseases.

Given hospital in Roane County, Beers Parkwest surgeon Dr. William the level of infection, Gibson put was back at Parkwest. Gibson with Premier Surgical Beers on a course of antibiotics “Dr. Gibson told me he could
see the outside of my colon in the CT report, but he’d like to see the inside before we did the surgery,” said Beers. To minimize the inconvenience of having to do a colon prep more than once, Dr. Juan Benitez, Parkwest gastroenterologist, and Gibson coordinated schedules to perform his colonoscopy on Feb. 21 and the surgery on the morning of Feb. 22. The colonoscopy conﬁrmed the CT results and showed that the previous episode had subsided. After one and a half hours in surgery, Beers awoke with six inches removed from his colon. “They think they got all of the affected portion of the colon out,” said Beers. “Hopefully I’ll never have another episode and the surgery will have been well worth it.” Beers was up and walking the day after surgery and felt well enough to return to work after ﬁve days. “You can count on the partnership between Parkwest and Premier for the best care and excellent results,” he said.

Shopper-News sales rep Brandi Davis has embarked on an interesting animal adventure lately. She’s become a “donkey mama.”
Carol Zin avage
Carol’s Critter Corner Her husband and fatherin-law are the owners of “Davis Charolais” in New Tazewell. Charolais are a white breed of beef cattle, and the Davises had become very concerned for their safety. Seems some local marauders – coyotes – had begun to threaten the population. A solution was needed. Donkeys to the rescue! Did you know that donkeys will keep coyotes away? A quick search on the internet turns up many vendors in “guard donkeys,” sold just for that very purpose. Actually, they don’t seem to like dogs of any sort – wild or domesticated. In Brandi’s case, she ended up with a couple of mini-
mules. (Since mules are the result of a romantic encounter between a female horse and a male donkey, she figured that was close enough.) A friend was able to hook the Davises up with a jack named Harley and a jenny named Precious. So far, Harley and Precious seem a bit cowed (ouch), not by the cattle, but by the space. They’d come from a small farm, and now they have five acres and their own barn. Brandi, meanwhile, is learning the ins and outs of mule ownership. She’s been plying them with horse treats from Tractor Supply, and they’re warming up to her. Harley has taken to braying when he spots Brandi coming. (All power to the woman with the treats.) They both enjoy a friendly pat on the head. Everyone is settling in. And the coyotes are staying away. Stay tuned to this column for news about many interesting upcoming events, including Take Your Dog to Work Day and the Walk and Wag Dog Walk, a special fundraiser given by a mother in memory of her animalloving daughter.

The barns at ESK
Two beautiful barns can be seen as you drive along Gilbert Road. They have become a signature of The Episcopal School of Knoxville.
Barnyard Tales Kathryn Woycik ESK headmaster Jay Secor shared some of the barns’ known history. Prior to the school’s purchase, the property was a farm. The general utility barn was built in the 1930s and served the farm’s needs. The tobacco barn was added sometime in the 1960s. The farmhouse was replaced with what is now the Bishop’s building. The 100 acre property on Gilbert Road was purchased for the school in 2000. Secor recalls having a series of parties that year to sponsor the school. In its early years, the 4-H school had a chicken and pig program. Two pigs, Wagner and Petuna, lived in the former tobacco barn. Pigs were among the contes-

Both were painted by the 7th grade students. tants entered at the Tennessee Valley Fair. After the winter break this past January, three beautiful quilt squares were added to the barns. ESK communications director Melissa Anderson wanted to share their story along with art teacher Philip Hoffman. The idea of adding the quilt squares came from Debbie Martin, treasurer of the Parents Association. She thought it would be a fun project for the students.
She presented the idea to Hoffman. He agreed after mulling it over. The project was funded by the Parent’s Association. Hoffman involved his three 7th grade classes. He decided to have three separate quilts made by each class. Each class, comprised of 16 students, researched many patterns and selected several of their favorites. Hoffman picked the top three.
He wanted students to come up with their own designs; choose the patterns within the main pattern, the colors and the amount of colors being used. The 8x8 wooden structures were primed and sealed front and back. The project took approximately 10 weeks to complete and has brought much excitement and pride to the school. Anyone wanting to share the story of their barn can email woycikK@ShopperNewsNow.com.
