Designing for stage Marianne Custer speaks to audiences through fabrics By Betsy Pickle

Marianne Custer has become a fan of Tom Stoppard’s play “On the Razzle.” She’s just not sure that Stoppard would return the admiration. “We’ve decided that Tom Stoppard hates costume designers and hates prop people,” says Custer, resident costume designer for the Clarence Brown Theatre, which launches a run of “On the Razzle” at 7:30 p.m. Friday, April 26. “This show is a costume and prop nightmare.” “On the Razzle” is based on the Austrian play that inspired Thornton Wilder’s “The Matchmaker,” which was adapted into “Hello, Dolly!” “It’s a wonderful story, this time without Dolly Levi,” says Custer, who also heads the master of fine arts design program in the UT Theater Department. She wasn’t familiar with the play before, but when she read it, she says, “I liked it right away. It was hilarious.” The show is set in Vienna in the late 19th century, when horses were still the mainstay of local transportation. “He has two of the leading men going off to Vienna on a horse, and then later on in the play, he has a coachman character who is picking up several of the characters in a coach drawn by horses,” says Custer. “So these are the kinds of challenges that Stoppard has provided us so kindly.” From a costume perspective, Custer wanted to come up with styles that would “enhance the humor without being the humor,” she says. “I didn’t want the clothes per se to be funny.” She does expect some costumes to get laughs. In the play, Viennese society is obsessed with Verdi’s opera “Macbeth,” and the town has gone bonkers over tartans. “You have all of these Austrian society people wandering around in their tartan finest – in their kilts, in their Balmorals, every

Budget talk What to expect from Burchett, Rogero By Betty Bean

The theme won’t be “We’re in the Money” for fiscal year 201314, but it won’t be “Buddy, Can You Spare a Dime,” either. And for that, local officials are grateful. “It’s a tight budget,” said Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero, who is expected to unveil a proposal on Friday that looks a lot like last year’s $180 million budget.

scribed the budget figure that is expected to nudge a little higher than last year’s $710 million, primarily due to an increase in education funding (BEP) from the state. The first thing that both mayors want people to know is that in spite of expensive problems like insufficiently funded pensions, there won’t be a property tax increase in the coming year. “We’re delivering the services they need and not charging them any more for it – and these days that’s a pretty good deal,” Burchett said. County Finance Director Chris Caldwell said the county has seen modest growth – 2.5 percent in sales tax growth, 1.5 percent in property tax growth – and expects a $7 million increase in state educational funding. “Nothing to write home about,” he said. “But growth, nevertheless. The mayor wants to pay down the debt by $100 million by the end of 2016, and we are still on pace to do that.” Meanwhile, the city has found a

way to start getting a handle on its unfunded pension liability. “This required taking $10 million out of our budget last year, and we applied it to this year to buffer the impact on the operating budget. That buys time and helps us meet Rogero those obligations while waiting for the economy to come back,” said Rogero. Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis, who represents South Knoxville and the University of Tennessee area, is cautiously happy. “There’s no pot of gold,” said Pavlis. “But I had Burchett some large capital projects already in last year’s budget, and those are in the pipeline.”

He is speaking of Suttree Landing Park on the south waterfront, the realignment of Woodlawn and Ft. Dickerson at Chapman Highway, the redesign of Cumberland Avenue and his favorite project, the Urban Wilderness. “That’s what I’ve pushed more than anything and I want to stay very focused on that,” Pavlis said. Rogero will host the annual budget luncheon at noon Friday, April 26, at Ijams Nature Center, Mead’s Quarry, spotlighting the first phase of the South Loop Trail, which connects Ijams Nature Center, Forks of the River Wildlife Management Area, William Hastie Natural Area and Marie Myers Park and is part of the Urban Wilderness project. Burchett will roll the county budget out May 1, but says there won’t be any refreshments. “We’ll just be going around to the districts, giving presentations.

popular at all when it was first produced in 1862. “No one cared much for it until someone dragged it out of the closet in about 1932 in the United States and started producing it again,” she says. “So this whole Verdi-mania aspect of the play is entirely Tom Stoppard’s fiction.” Custer, who lives in The Village at Roefield, isn’t afraid of challenges. The Minneapolis native came to UT in 1974 after earning her bachelor’s degree from the University of Minnesota, teaching for a year, earning her master’s from the University of Wisconsin-Madison and then working for a year in Colorado. She was invited to apply at UT after then-department head Ralph Allen put out feelers to her professors.

FARRAGUT NOTES “There were some really tough years here, especially politically,” she says. “Also, in the beginning, the work hours were just hideous because there was really no one to do the work – one other person and me and a couple of students. It was really kind of awful, and even in school it was awful. “This is a business that eats people up and spits them out if they can’t do the work. So you just kind of plow through.” As time passed and an endowment from Knoxville native Clarence Brown brought in much-needed funds, Custer realized that it would be hard to find another college position where she would be able to work with a professional company and have the budget to buy high-quality fabrics. She also realized how fond she’d grown of Knoxville. “I was offered a job at the University of Illinois, Champaign-Urbana, and as I flew in for my interview, all I could see was corn,” she recalls. “I just thought,

Not in my town If you live in the Farragut community, you are used to living with misconceptions. Oh, Farragut… where’s your BMW? Farragut? You people are just a bunch of rich snobs. Your kids went to Farragut? You have good schools because your schools get everything! I do not live within the boundaries of the town of Farragut. However, like many of us who live in West Knoxville, I consider myself a Farragut resident because my children graduated from Farragut High School. We shop in Farragut, pull for the Admirals and against the Bulldogs, enjoy the parks and neighborhoods. For the most part, the misconceptions don’t bother me, because I see them as rooted in good things about my community. Education is a priority. Churches are welcoming. Housing values give you an opportunity to save for your future. Neighborhood streets are well-maintained, people are friendly, options for shopping, eating and playing are plentiful. So, my first reaction to hearing Bill Johns’ proposal that Farragut pass an ordinance requiring every homeowner to own a gun and ammunition was: What? Did he say Farragut? My second response was a prayer. Please, oh please, oh please – don’t let this hit the national news. The ordinance that Johns proposes would have no teeth, no enforcement properties. It is what he calls a Symbolic/Marketing Ordinance. He maintains that the benefits to the town would be an instant real estate property value bump, a decrease in crime and a beacon to companies leaving other cities that are enacting stronger gun legislation to come to Farragut. I respectfully disagree. I believe that this ordinance has no value except to make this wonderful community look like something it is not. We are not a bunch of gun-brandishing, irresponsible yahoos.

The Haneys were motorcycle enthusiasts who rode from their home in Florida to attend Honda Wing Dings here. They fell in love with East Tennessee, and when they decided to leave Florida after Hurricane Andrew in 1993, it didn’t take them long to figure out where they wanted to go. They’d started a highly portable momand-pop business selling protective eyewear to motorcyclists and didn’t want to endure the punishing winters in Linda’s native Illinois. So they became “half backs.” “We thought, ‘What a perfect place to live. We can go to motorcycle rallies and

I took advice from a lot of people who had been candidates. I went to every meeting and every club that was related to anything having to do with the party. A friend made a video and we made and distributed flyers. “People came out and saw me and supported me, so I was very pleased with that.” Haney’s election was a rejection of her opposition’s suggestion that the party needed to “move away” from Johnson, who was elected state representative last year and represented one of Tennessee Democrats’ few success stories.

be closer to home.’ That’s really what brought us here,” Linda Haney said. They eased into local politics after going to a Democratic Party meet-up and talking to party chair Jim Gray. “He invited us to get involved, and Dan jumped right in. I helped him.

Mannis and Lyons said plans have not been finalized for the use of the historic main administrative building beyond its not being demolished or neglected. Both said the city plans to work closely with Lakeshore Park LLC, the board which oversees much of the current park and includes members such as attorney Thomas McAdams, Pilot Oil CEO Jimmy Haslam and Margaret Ritchie, along with the mayor. A Memorandum of Understanding between the state and city will have to go to City Council for approval to become effective. This transfer will be a major step in the development of the city park system and represents the fulfillment of dreams when over half of the land was first transferred to the city in the early 1990s under the late Gov. McWherter and Mayor Ashe. The park will only attract further use and attention as its significance grows. There will be a cost to its acquisition which City Council should

fully inform itself about as it votes to accept the property. There will be public hearings on updating the master plan for the enlarged park. ■ Democratic state Rep. Gloria Johnson skipped the vote April 8 on the constitutional amendment to prohibit a state income tax in Tennessee. In fact, she was in the House Chamber when it came to a vote and declined to vote yes, no or present and not voting. When asked about it, she emailed, “This amendment is just Republicans wasting time and money to score political points. They need to learn how to govern and quit playing politics. I do not intend to play their games.” Johnson, in my view, erred in not voting one way or the other. She will find it difficult to explain why she sat in her chair and could not lift her finger to push one of the three buttons. She was not elected to skip votes whatever she thinks the motives are. Republicans are not alone

in playing games as Democrats have been known to do it too. Persons opposed to a state income tax will tell you it is only a 45-year-old state Supreme Court decision which bars an income tax. A future Supreme Court could rule differently, which was what Gov. Sundquist and many Democrats hoped 13 years ago when they pushed a state income tax. Johnson failed to state whether she favors or opposes such a tax. Gov. Bredesen, a Democrat, opposed it. Also, Johnson would be wise, in a district which voted by over 1,000 votes for Mitt Romney last year, to soften her attacks on Republicans when she won by less than 300 votes and will be a target in 2014. If she wants a second term she needs to offer herself as a Schumpert, Bredesen, Ritchie type Democrat who have all won here. Refusing to vote on a Republican bill will not help her if she faces a credible GOP candidate in 2014.

More changes for Farragut’s first four-story building Noah Myers, a principal with Myers Bros. Holdings, has fought hard to have the town’s first four-story building as close to Kingston Pike as possible to preserve the aesthetics of the development. But, while Myers Bros. is developing the project, the company doesn’t own the building. Myers said the owner feared he had “stirred a hornets’ nest” by pushing the building only 100 feet from Kingston Pike. “He doesn’t want to do that,” Myers said, adding that the owner was concerned about reaction to something so different for Farragut. The issue was up for revision last week at the Farragut Municipal Planning Commission meeting. “He’s actually spending

more to push the building back and will upgrade the sewer system on the property,” Myers said, explaining that the change puts the building over sewer lines that have to be relocated. “We’ve got some neat ways to screen the entrance with landscaping similar to Turkey Creek to de-emphasize the parking lot and emphasize the architecture of the building.” Commissioners approved a change in the site plans to move the build-

Raising irises By Libby Morgan “Tom Parkhill is a premier iris hybridizer,” says Ruth Ennenga, secretary of the East Tennessee Iris Society. Well said. Parkhill’s finest iris yet, “Chief John Jolly,” is in the running for the most prestigious award in the world of American irises. He’s been cross-pollinating irises for over 60 years and, since 1956, has been developing his craft in his sunny backyard just up the road from Ijams Nature Center in Island Home. Chief John Jolly has often made the cut in the American Iris Society’s judging with an Honorable Mention in 2005, the Award of Merit in 2008, and the Wister Medal last year. Parkhill’s gorgeous variety with buff yellow “standards,” the top part of the bloom, and reddishbrown-edged white “falls,” the petals below, with “rays” and “dots,” is his best yet, and, according to comments he says he has received from AIS panel

members, one of the three best ever in the history of the 93-year-old national organization. It is eligible for consideration for three years for the coveted Dykes Award, a distinction given only once each year. Parkhill will find out in August whether Chief John Jolly takes him to the pinnacle this time. Parkhill carefully crosspollinates between two promising varieties, collects and grows the seeds,

Stephen Prince owns residential property in Old Stage Hills adjacent to the new office building. He has had several discussions with Myers Bros. about buffering between his property and the building. He came before the commission to request a zoning change on part of his property from Residential-1 to Buffer-1. Ruth Hawk, community development director, said approval would be “a precedent setting action.” At issue was rezoning a portion of a single-family parcel to benefit a commercial entity. “It’s a philosophical issue,” Hawk said.

Commissioner Ed St. Clair worried about “unintended consequences” if approved. “I’m very, very concerned about the generic implications of this,” St. Clair said. Myers said Prince has a large lot and that even with part of it being zoned Buffer, the rest of the lot is still large enough to be a regular-sized lot. “This protects the creek which right now has no protections,” Myers said. In the end, the commissioners approved the zoning change. Another lengthy discussion concerned what may become the first rezoning request involving the Comprehensive Land Use Plan. Kay and David Wellons have been working with assistant town administrator Gary Palmer on possible

and waits to see the distinctive bloom. “I’ve got one out there now that’s a goner. I’m not impressed with it at all,” says Parkhill. “I’m gonna dig it up and make room for something else. “I won’t have to think of a name for it. It’s difficult to come up with names when there are two to three thousand iris variety names registered every year. “My other award winner is Miah Jane. It’s all one color, known as a ‘self,’ and is a soft vibrant blue.” Miah Jane won the AIS Award of Merit in 2007. Parkhill sure isn’t in it for the money. “I sell about enough to pay for about half of my new stock,” he says, referring to purchases of other promising varieties from other hybridizers like him. Geraldine Couturier, longtime daylily and iris grower, says society members will buy the newest and the best varieties, grow them, and then share with other members, gaining new color, form and size traits to put into the mix. The East Tennessee Iris Society is open to new members, says Ennenga,

and meets most non-winter second Mondays at Bethel United Methodist Church at 5955 W. Emory Road. Call Ruth Ennenga at 803-6338 to confirm the date and time if you’d like to join them. Irises are just now coming into bloom here in Knoxville. “Bloom time is the absolute worst time to transplant irises from the plant’s point of view, but it’s also when people can see the blooms and it makes them want to buy them,” says Parkhill. “So I’ll be digging a lot next week.” Parkhill and his fellow iris society members will be at their annual show and sale next Saturday at Knoxville Center Mall and at Bloomsdays at the UT Gardens on May 11-12.

future development of their property at 820 Campbell Station Road, where they live on her family’s farm. With improvements to Campbell Station Road at the Interstate 40/75 exit, the Wellons are considering developing part of the property. While they said they have not decided what they want to do, they favor rezoning it from the current Residential-2 to a more marketable category. Currently it’s considered Open Space Cluster Residential. They would like a zoning more along the lines of Mixed Use. Changing the zoning under the Land Use Plan is a two-step process. First the property owner has to get the usage changed and then decide what zoning they want. Palmer suggested all

involved do more research and come back at the next meeting, perhaps with a plan. Commissioners were also given an overview of the FY2014 budget, and they discussed Everett Road improvements. Fox Run resident Louise Povlin pleaded her case again to do something with Everett Road. With the opening of Hardin Valley Academy, teens from subdivisions on Everett have to drive the road to get to school. As a mother of a soon-to-be teen driver, Povlin says she worries about the road. Commissioner Ed Whiting countered, “Union has deteriorated to the point where it’s almost a cow trail, and the bridge is in bad shape.”

Iris show and sale is Saturday Local iris enthusiasts, members of the East Tennessee Iris Society, will host their annual show and sale Saturday, April 27, at Knoxville Center Mall near the Trout Court. Show chair Geraldine Couturier of the Strawberry Plains area says anyone is welcome to bring cut iris by 8:30 a.m. for the competition, but the entry must be a named variety. Other unnamed irises can be displayed, and iris experts will be on hand. Arrangements featuring irises is also a category in the show. There are several categories, including “novice,” for those who have never won an award be-

fore for their arrangements. These also must be brought to the show early before the judging begins. After the judging, iris starts, called rhizomes, will be for sale from 1-4 p.m. “We raise a right smart amount of money for the society at this sale, but we don’t charge near enough for the varieties. Some of them sell for $40 other places. We usually charge four dollars. I think we’re going to go up to five this year,” says Tom Parkhill. The iris society will also be selling at Bloomsdays at the UT Gardens May 11 and 12.

Chancellor awards, Vandy coach, other tidbits Sometimes there is no way to win. Jimmy Cheek, chancellor of the University of Tennessee, might not win a popularity vote from football fans. Innocent though he may be, Jimmy is perceived as part of the problem. His goal of academic excellence, making UT one of the top research schools in the country, is thought to be a stumbling block, even a blockade to football success. One of my favorite fans has made a study of Dr. Cheek. That he consorted with Florida Gators for 34 years is apparently a serious offense. That he had trouble deciding whether Bruce Pearl was right or wrong was waffling at its worst. That he was slow to stop milking the athletic department for funds indicated a lack of understanding. Cheek got his latest X as host for the awards banquet recognizing outstanding

achievement. Nineteen athletes were honored for awesome academics. They represented basketball, softball, tennis, golf, swimming, track, volleyball, even rowing. Alas, Dr. Cheek searched everywhere, high and low, but could not find super football scholars.


ber pole but there is an urge to “tweak” Tennessee football uniforms. The correct color of orange shirts and white pants is just so old-fashioned. Some argue that change is a marketing plus. Some say “give the kids whatever they want.” Some just want anything different, like Oregon. Some loved the Halloween black jerseys of 2009. They found that coach oh, so exciting. Some are researching camouflage and progressive color combinations Butch Jones used in Cincinnati. They do believe change is in the air. OK, I am old-fashioned but I can tolerate subtle alteration. Just don’t mess with the basics, orange, white, checkerboards and power T. What say you?

A segment of the population is uncomfortable without constant change. Tradition doesn’t mean much. Anything older than last Tuesday is out of date. *** The restless bunch may I try to avoid it but I not want to paint the Washington Monument like a bar- thought of Lane Kiffin 2009

acter who was “freezing to death in front of a roaring fire.” I think that – on one occasion or another – most of us are guilty of that particular sin. He meant that we humans sometimes refuse the comfort, the joy, the peace, the love that is offered to us free for the taking. Call The phrase was coined by a Knoxville author whose it stubbornness, or stupidname I have long since forgotten. He wrote about a char- ity or blindness. Call it beWho sent you to bring me in from the cold? Logic points to the dark prince of flame, but when did reason ever explain resurrection? A gift so painfully given comes only from the One who understands all hurts, all joys, whose hands we fall into, who raises us on the wings of eagles. (“How Are You Fallen?” from “Guardians,” Laura Still)

and that triggered another invasive thought: Vanderbilt coach James Franklin, 41, sometimes acts like Lane. Franklin, man of the year according to the Tennessee Sports Hall of Fame, is very popular among Vandy fans. They are so happy to have experienced back-to-back bowl games, even if one was in Nashville. Vanderbilt is still celebrating the historic ninewin season, even though the schedule was soft. Vanderbilt really liked that 41-18 rip job on the Volunteers. Imagine taking a knee to avoid running up the score. Hey, hey, hey. Beating Tennessee is serious business. Taunting Tennessee fans must be fun. It so happens the Tennessee power T was upside down in a Vandy video about recruiting results. It could have been passed off as a typographical error except it was twice upside down. Franklin went into the Vandy stands during a spring scrimmage and presented a black sweatshirt to a boy wearing an orange shirt. The coach suggested a cover-up. Franklin denies disdain for all things orange. He says

ing crippled, or fearful or broken. Whatever one calls it, sometimes it is true. We allow ourselves to freeze to death in front of a roaring fire. We are unable – for whatever reason – to believe that someone (or Someone!) has loved us, loves us now and will love us in the future. Forever, steadfastly, extravagantly. The alternative, of course, is to do that which we are so fearful of doing: taking a chance. Permit love to sneak up on us, to take us by surprise and to give ourselves over to it wholeheartedly. The same can be said for a life in Christ. We can run from him, or hold him at arm’s length

His latest recruiting line is “Make a decision based on the big picture and not the shiny things that people get excited about: weight room, size of stadium and things like that.” Nothing personal, mind you.

*** Tennessee and Alabama conducted football coaching clinics on the same weekend. We had trouble counting but the Vols attracted somewhere between 500 and 1,000 high school coaches. The Tide drew maybe 1,600. Tennessee offered Peyton Manning as star attraction. Alabama also had an NFL look, Sean Payton, Dick Vermeil, Chuck Pagano and Herm Edwards. Butch Jones was prominent at the UT clinic. Some guy named Saban spoke in Tuscaloosa. Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is westwest6@netzero.com.

or actively push him away. But if we are willing to be in relationship with Christ, we can come to know peace and joy. We can learn fulfillment and usefulness. We can figure out what it means to trust, to grow, to give, to love. That means, of course, that we will have to allow ourselves to be brought “in from the cold.” There is risk involved, and uncertainty, to be sure. But love is a fire that will warm and protect and heal, a gift that will nurture and encourage and tend. Love is a hand that we fall into, and a home that will abide.

News from SOS Common Core is the internationally competitive academic standards that prepare students for college or entry-level jobs. In 2010, Tennessee joined 47 other states in creating standards in math and English that hold all K-12 students to the same quality educational level. If students move from one state to another, they will face the same expectations and approach. Knox County began applying new math standards this year and will add English next year. Skills students learn are needed for success in today’s workforce: teamwork, critical thinking and problemsolving. In math, they don’t just learn 3x3=9 but consider different ways this problem could be solved. They must also explain how they reached the answer. In English, students are urged to think critically. They interpret what is written and justify the reasoning behind their interpretation. Close reading and interpretation skills apply in all disciplines. Common core standards are more rigorous; students learn important concepts at an earlier age. They place more emphasis on real understanding than on memorization. They are coordinated within each grade level so that concepts are built on each year. More information about the new standards and examples of tests can be found at www. tncore.org.

Painting the Word Jill Stone puts Bible verses to canvas By Ashley Baker Jill Stone, decorative artisan and muralist, uses her God-given gift to inspire others. Stone fosters creativity by teaching a “Painting with Scripture� class. For Stone, ambiance is key. Christian music plays softly as Stone instructs students in the basics of color selection, blending and surface preparation. Stone also teaches faux finishing techniques that can be applied to other projects in her students’ homes. Stone encourages her students to paint a creative rendition of the word of God. During each class, students work on 16 x 20 gallery-wrapped canvases. After seven hours of art instruction and working, stu-

dents will have a completed painting to take home, inspired by a verse from the New Testament. Each painting contains images and words, such as the passage from Mark 12:30: “Thou shall love the Lord thy God with all of thy heart, and with all of thy soul, and with all of thy mind, and with all of thy strength.� Stone advertises her class as one where no previous art instruction is required. The amazement of the students as they follow Stone’s stepby-step instructions and watch their painting take shape shows on each face. “My second career began after seven years on management teams at General Electric and Texas Instruments in Human Resources

and corporate recruitment.� Stone said. “After being asked many times at shows where I had my work, I realized there was a demand, but I was not able to make the time to offer classes to the public until now.� Stone’s secret is simple. She has a passion for God’s word, and she shares that passion with others. “Ephesians 2:10 is why I am giving painting classes,� Stone said. “For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, which God prepared beforehand, that we should walk in them.� “When I am painting,� Stone continued, “I am allowing God to feed my soul. And as I listen to the Bible and my favorite pastors and speakers on audio as I work, I feel the Lord’s presence as he pours his love into my spirit and heart.� Stone also works alongside Steve Humphreys, Executive Director of FOCUS Group Ministries, helping teach inmates of Morgan County Correctional Facility the joy of artistic expression. This ministry hosts a program called “Unique Creations by the Least of These� that helps make the inmates’ art available for purchase. Proceeds from the program supplement the income of inmates’ families. Stone will also be open-

Shopper-News Presents Miracle Makers

Acknowledging the

Children of today

By Sandra Clark

Cindy Bosse is proud of her staff and students at Sterchi Elementary School. A Farragut resident and veteran educator, Bosse would be first to say a great school is a team effort. She, like many others, feels slightly uncomfortable with the moniker “Miracle Maker.” Yet when Knox County Schools asked for proposals for a technology grant, a 9-member team (three teachers, two parents, librarian, GT coach, principal and assistant principal) at Sterchi made the very best presentation. That’s the opinion of this writer who trekked to the central office to review all 28 requests. (Ironically, for technology proposals, all are on paper and stored in a cardboard box on the 14th floor.) Read Sterchi’s summary: “What makes Sterchi stand above the rest is acknowledging the difference between the children of yesterday and those of today. “Jackson and Sydney (kids used as examples) are Digital Natives. They are engaged through technology. “We are primed to take the next steps to seamlessly integrate further technology into the daily learning process. We would welcome the opportunity to be a pilot school for Knox County Schools’ new comprehensive, instructional technology initiative to support personalized student learning for all our students and then to readily share our experience.”

Tech-rich world Bosse says the integration of technology throughout her school will support a personalized learning environment. That’s good for teachers and great for kids. “Our goal is to enable students to develop the necessary skills to thrive in a fast-paced, continuously evolving, technology-rich world,” she wrote. “Teachers are growing daily in their understanding, vision and readiness to implement a comprehensive, instructional technology initiative as a next step in their journey to ensure success for every child.” Bosse then outlined a day in the lives of two fictional students – 4th grader Jackson and his 1st grade sister, Sydney, in the spring of 2014 after Sterchi has implemented the technology grant. Those scenarios use words that I don’t know. For instance, I can’t help but see a Promethean ActivBoard bursting into flames. Maybe that’s the

Sterchi’s technology coach Lou Jones, students Max Tsetsakis and Megha Patel, and principal Cindy Bosse spend time in the school’s library. The school was one of 11 selected for Knox County Schools’ technology grant. Photos by Ruth White

reason for its name. At any rate, the method of instruction is very, very different from the way previous generations learned. Sterchi is truly preparing for the children of today.

Current practice Bosse says the Sterchi staff already uses many tools of technology. “Our teachers currently differentiate instruction through small groups, Fast Math, Voyager, Ticket to Read, Accelerated Reader, novel studies, and web quests.” This year Sterchi started two new after-school programs: All Star Tutoring is for students in grades 3-5 who were identified based on standardized test scores and teacher recommendations. The goal is to increase achievement and shrink the gap between the economically disadvantaged and non-economically disadvantaged students. The All SySTEMs Go afterschool program challenges the highest achieving 4th and 5th graders. Students meet with the media

Sterchi School got a $200 boost last week from the Fountain City Business and Professional Association. President Andrew Hartung and board member John Fugate met with assistant principal Jessica Schaefer (standing) and Family Fun Night co-chairs Stacey Cox and Stephanie Riffey in the school’s media center. Family Fun Night raised $8,000 which will be used to purchase school technology. “We enjoy being able to put money back in to this community,” said Fugate. specialist and GT coach for science, technology, engineering and math projects. Sterchi is not a struggling school. The school report card shows an A in academic achievement in all subjects. And even though 44 percent of the students receive free or reduced price meals, Sterchi ranked fifth among all Knox County elementary schools in percent of students proficient or advanced in reading, science and social studies, and sixth in the county in math. The Value Added state report card grades are an A in math, reading and social studies and a B in science. “Our school has developed a powerful, collaborative culture that capitalizes on everyone’s strengths,” Bosse wrote.

Knox County Council PTA

Implementation Bosse said the technology will not be rolled out by grade level or subject. No, at Sterchi the implementation plan is called “all hold hands and jump in together.” She threw in some more verbiage to impress the committee (It worked!), but isn’t that a wonderful statement? “All hold hands and jump in together.” And that, my friends the politicians, must be the theme for funding the technology component of this year’s school board budget. Let’s acknowledge the difference between the children of yesterday and those of today. And give these kids the tools to learn.

Coffee Break with

Farragut store. While not the first Shrimp Dock, it was his first. In addition to the Bearden store, there is also a store now in Alcoa. “We depend on the people of Farragut,” said Phil, “and they are good to us. It is a great community to live in and to do business in. We truly love our customers.” Sit and have a Coffee Break as you get to know Phil Dangel:

Phil Dangel

Like the rest of the world, Boston has been on Phil Dangel’s mind this past week. The owner of The Shrimp Dock seafood markets grew up in the city, is a big Boston Red Sox fan and has been watching the news with concern for his hometown. Phil is thinking a lot about the past these days. Farragut’s Shrimp Dock will be 5 years old on April 25, a realization of a dream of owning his own business for Phil, who is a partner in the business with his wife, Becky. Phil moved south as a retailer, working with Macy’s department store in Atlanta and then coming to Knoxville to be a vice president with Goody’s. He has been in Knoxville for almost 20 years, and his youngest child, Boomer, now a freshman at Syracuse, graduated from Webb School of Knoxville. Son Keith lives in Chapel Hill, N.C., and son Paul lives in Birmingham. He and Becky have two grandchildren. Moving from clothing to a seafood market came about because of a belief in the quality and need for the business, said Phil. “I was a loyal customer of the original Shrimp Dock in Bearden. I was constantly telling the owner, Capt. Paul (Willis), that Farragut would be a good place for The Shrimp Dock.” The stars aligned when Goody’s closed, and Phil and Becky decided to follow the dream of owning their own business. Becky does the books and financials for the stores, which now number three. A year after Phil bought the naming rights and opened the Farragut store, “Capt. Paul decided he wanted to fish fulltime,” said Phil. “We still run trucks to him in New Orleans, and he still supplies us with a lot of our food.” Being a small business owner can be a tough road, said Phil. “There are a lot of challenges. No. 1 is that we fight a lot of competition out there. In the last five years, we have withstood a re-do of Ingles, re-do of Kroger, two new Publix and an Earth Fare. All of them sell fish.” But not Shrimp Dock fish, Phil is quick to point out. “Our fish is guaranteed fresh to the customer,” he said. “It is not three, four or five days out of the ocean, and it is never frozen. We guarantee our customers fresh, and we know exactly where the fish came from. We sell no products from Asia, and 99 percent of our fish is from the U.S.” His three best-sellers are shrimp, shrimp poor-boy sandwiches and salmon. The Dock offers catering and is becoming known for their shrimp boils. Phil is especially enjoying this anniversary week for the

“If you put your effort and concentration into playing to your potential, to be the best that you can be, I don’t care what the scoreboard says at the end of the game. In my book, we’re gonna be winners.” From the movie “Hoosiers.”

What are you guilty of? Not listening well and interrupting people as they speak. Sometimes I turn off in the middle of a paragraph, and you lose me. I once took a class where before you spoke, you had to tell the person to whom you were talking what it was they said. I need to retake the class.

My dad was the victim of a random murder many years ago, so I never had an opportunity to say goodbye to him or let him know how much he meant to me.

Other than your parents, who has had the biggest influence on your life and why? No question about this one: My wife. I know it is trite to say, but in my case, it is true: I married way up! Becky is easily the best person I know, plus she’s so cute!

I still can’t quite get the hang of … Anything in the cyber world: computers, smartphones, cable TV setup.

What is the best present you ever received in a box? My first baseball glove. I still own it.

What is the best advice your mother ever gave you? She told me many, many things. Some favorites: First, do not waste your time on people who do not like you. Spend time with people you like. Second, blood is thicker than water. Third, life is like a roller coaster: Enjoy the ups, because you sure as heck are coming down.

What is your social media of choice? I guess it is Facebook. My entire family mocks me because I own a 5-year-old Blackberry. I am afraid to change, because it took me four years to learn how to use it.

What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon?

An authentic autographed photo of Larry Bird, Ted Williams and Bobby Orr.

“Superman,” because he could fly and see through people.

What are you reading currently?

What irritates you?

I am reading three books: “Between Their World and Ours: Breakthrough with Autistic Children;” Ken Follett’s “Winter of the World;” and “Francona: Bio of Terry Francona.”

No. 1 is people who say to me, “You must be from New York!” (An untrue assumption, by the way.) The best part is that they say it as if it was an insult! I have lived in the South for more than 30 years and in Knoxville for 20 years. Trust me, I have met many rude Southerners. Not all rude people are from up North!

What was your most embarrassing moment? I once said a very bad word about someone, and, unfortunately, the microphone was still on. There was just no going back on it, as 200 people were in the room.

What are the top three things on your bucket list? Visiting Switzerland/Lake Cuomo; coaching a high school, middle school or little league baseball team; and opening a Shrimp Dock Raw Bar with oysters, shrimp, lobster rolls, beer and wine. It would be a small place that would become a gathering spot in Farragut. One day it will happen!

What’s one place in Farragut everyone should visit? The Shrimp Dock, of course. For the last five years we have maintained our mission to offer fresh fish, and we keep changing to meet customer demands. If you tried us five years ago, you need to come back.

What is your greatest fear? That my grandchildren will not know me well. They live in Raleigh and Birmingham. My grandparents were always around and played a big part in my life.

What is one word others often use to describe you?

If you could do one impulsive thing, what would it be?

Impatient or direct (blunt). Let’s just say I get to the point and do not sugar coat it.

If money were no object, first I would buy a professional baseball team and drive the manager and GM completely nuts! Second, I would open 50 Shrimp Dock Markets all over the Southeast and bring fresh shrimp and fresh seafood to all those cities. – Sherri Gardner Howell

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? Physically, I would be 6 feet tall. Emotionally, I would be more empathetic and more patient.

What is your passion?

By Sherri Gardner Howell When you can put your arms around those who are benefiting from your passion, your life changes. That was the message shared by Brenda Thornburgh, Polio Plus Chair for Rotary District 6780, with members of the Rotary Club of Farragut. Thornburgh spoke at the April 17 meeting at Fox Den Country Club. Her message was twofold: The goal of eradicating polio is not done, and, Rotary involvement on the local club level is making a difference. “We can’t stop now,� Thornburgh told the group. “In 1985, when the campaign began, there were 300,000 cases of polio worldwide each year, and more than

Brenda Thornburgh, Polio Plus Chair for Rotary District 6780, brought an update on the fight to eradicate polio and shared experiences from her trip to India at the Rotary Club of Farragut meeting. Photo by Sherri Gardner Howell

125 countries were polioendemic. Today, there are only three countries that are polio-endemic: Afghani-

stan, Nigeria and Pakistan. India has had no cases of polio for one year, and it takes three years with no cases to be considered polio-free. “But if we were to stop today, in 11 years, we would be back up to 300,000 cases.� Thornburgh spent 14 days in India in 2012 as part of a vaccination team. “When you come face-toface with a ‘crawler,’ who is a beggar whose body has been locked by polio, it changes your life. When you meet a 9 or 10-year-old little boy who weighs 45 pounds and has his legs locked by polio, and you learn that he is waiting for surgery so that he will have some kind of life other than becoming a crawler, you see what your donations are doing.�

Thornburgh shared the conditions of the country and the process the teams have to go through to administer the vaccine drops to the children. She left the group with this message: “Kids are the same wherever you go. They just want to be happy, healthy and able to play. Polio exists not because we don’t have the science and the ability to prevent it, but because of politics, violence and accessibility in the countries where it is still present. Rotary is making a difference. We cannot stop.� Rotary Club of Farragut meets on Wednesdays at noon at Fox Den Country Club. For more information, visit www.farragutrotary. org.

News from Knoxville’s Community Dreamy results will Development Corporation (KCDC) follow Chamber auction Progress for Five Points Bettye Sisco likes to dream. This year, the CEO of the Farragut chamber has transformed her love of dreaming into a powerful theme for the annual Farragut West Knoxville Chamber of Commerce Auction and Dinner. “Turning Dreams into Reality” is the theme for the 26th annual event. Dreamers (businesses and individuals who sponsor tables) are encouraged to turn their dreams into table decorations, showing off a little of their own personalities and hopes. Sisco tells the sponsoring businesses – whose tabletops will compete for bragging rights as Best Dressed Table – to finish the thought: I just want to … Whether filling in that blank is “dance a jig” or “take a trip” or “eat some pie,” a world of possibilities is open to the creators. That, says Sisco, should make for some very lively and entertaining table dec-

orations in what has become a popular part of the annual dinner and auction. The dreams take on a more substantive meaning, however, when Sisco reveals this year’s benefactors for the fundraiser. The Dream Connection, an organization that helps children who are terminally ill live out one of their dreams, will receive 15 percent of the ticket sales proceeds. A portion of ticket sales will also go to the Chamber’s Continuing Education Scholarships, which are awarded three times each year – one on the night of the dinner/auction. The live and silent auctions always keep the crowd dreaming, as well, as dinners at restaurants,

jewelry, a full set of tires, mattresses and more will be available at the silent auction tables. When auctioneer Bear Stephenson takes the floor, the table decorations hit the auction block for the live auction. Guests are encouraged to look closely at the tables – they may be hiding some surprises! “Turning Dreams into Reality” will be at 6 p.m. Friday, April 26, at Rothchild Catering and Conference Center, 8807 Kingston Pike. Tickets for chamber members are $55 each or $100 per couple. Nonmembers are $65 ($120 per couple). Tables of 10 are $500. Reservations are required and may be made by calling the chamber office at 675-7057 or registering on-line at www.farragutchamber.com. The event is usually a sell-out, so Sisco encourages anyone with a happy dream to get tickets now.

By Alvin Nance Through the hard work of KCDC employees, the city of Knoxville and our partner organizations, many of Knoxville’s neighborhoods are Nance ex per ienc ing transformations, and during National Community Development Week April 1-5, we gathered to celebrate this progress. On April 1, KCDC joined with the city of Knoxville to celebrate a project that has been a priority for both agencies for many years: Five Points Revitalization. We invited approximately 50 elected officials and community leaders to Paul Hogue Park in the heart of Five Points to share our vision of a revitalized neighborhood. Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero and our KCDC board of commissioners chair Culver Schmid detailed what has already been accomplished and our plans for future development. “Cities are great if they have great neighborhoods,” said Mayor Rogero. “The city of Knoxville remains committed to the revitalization of Five Points and is partnering with KCDC in this effort.” “With the help of our community partners, we have made significant steps

Officials inspect the Five Points development. Photo submitted towards breathing new life into Five Points,” Schmid said. “We have a vision for its future as a vibrant part of Knoxville.” Much has already been done in this area to improve affordable housing and to identify community needs and resources available to residents. ■ In 2011, KCDC opened the Residences at Eastport, an 85-unit, LEED Platinumcertified senior housing development in Five Points. ■ Senior housing duplexes were also constructed in 2011 adding 20 housing units to the community. ■ In August, 183 units of Walter P. Taylor were demolished as part of a first phase to replace older public housing in Five Points with new units. As part of the second phase of redevelopment in

the area, KCDC is currently constructing 20 family-style, in-fill housing units in vacant or blighted lots that will fit in with the architectural character of the neighborhood. At the Five Points celebration event, we cut the ribbon on a brand new single-family residence on the corner of Chestnut and Wilson streets. KCDC also recently opened up a new duplex that has already been leased to two families, and plans call for a total of three duplexes, two single-family residences and two six-plex residences, which will be managed by KCDC. Our residents want more for their families and their neighborhood. Through our strategic plan and help from our residents and community partners, we will create a better future for Five Points.

Working-class hero LAW DOGS | Betty Bean Billy Stokes was playing quarter tonk with a guy named Moses when he had a sudden flash of clarity. A 1970 Rule High School graduate, Billy had gotten a job tending bar at Sam & Andy’s after the University of Tennessee had invited him to take a quarter off, and somehow that quarter stretched out into a year and a half as he whiled away slow afternoons between lunch and happy hour with his friends. “It dawned on me that in 18 months, none of us had moved an inch. So I went back to school and got my degree,” he said. Forty-plus years later, he’s a lawyer with a reputation for being aggressive, competent, thorough, and for winning some huge settlements. A politically active Republican who doesn’t mind occasionally going off the reservation – like when he supported Madeline Rogero for mayor in a nonpartisan city race – he’s got a Rule High School baseball cap on one side of the shelf behind his desk and a Jellico cap on the other side. In his desk drawer sits a picture, soon to be framed, of the tiny shotgun house in Lonsdale where he grew up. He’s also got a picture of the Howard Johnson’s where his mother waited tables and the ET&WNC truck his father drove for a living. On another wall there are pictures of him with presidents, senators and governors, including several from his stints as state commissioner of employment security and as special assistant

to the governor during the Don Sundquist administration, including one of him dressed in full Santa Claus drag sitting on the back of his Harley-Davidson. “I’m an old school dude. I like to ride motorcycles, go fishing and am pretty much true to my southern Appalachian roots. I’m probably a typical Scots-Irish male. Whether you got money or I got money, we’re all even. Doesn’t matter who you are. “Redneck? That’s all right with me. Pretentious is probably not something anybody calls me – I hope. RINO (Republican In Name Only)? I don’t care. Madeline Rogero was by far the best candidate in that field of three. A chief executive needs to be a competent manager.”

Growing up His family originally came from Saxton, Ky., just across the state line from Jellico, before they moved to Knoxville. His mother, Thelma, is 89 and still living independently. His father, J.P., died in 1999 and was a truck driver for a company called East Tennessee/ Western North Carolina – ET-WNC. “We called it ‘Eat Taters and Wear No Clothes.’ ” When he was little, he spent weekends in Jellico with his grandparents while his mother waited tables in the D&M, which formally stood for Davenport and Miller, but was popularly called the Devil’s Mansion. He’s the youngest of three children, and Stokes says his family was faring much

better financially by the time he hit adolescence. “Jimmy Hoffa negotiated a national contract for the Teamsters, and I was the only kid at home, so I had it a lot easier than my brother and sister. I grew up working-class, and that’s what we need more of today.” So how did this son of a Teamster become a Republican? “You’ll have to remember – Hoffa didn’t have much use for the Kennedys. A lot of Teamsters were Republicans at that time.” After he finished up at Rule, Stokes enrolled in Maryville College to play football, but injured his “good” shoulder. He’d already had surgery on his left shoulder after his senior season. That forced a decision: “Being short and slow, I decided to quit football and go to UT.”

Becoming a cop After his Sam & Andy’s epiphany, he went back to school full-time, supporting himself by working at the General Products warehouse. He graduated in 1975 with a major in psychology and minors in political science and sociology, and started thinking about what to do next. Like so many Lonsdale boys before him, he became a cop. Theondrad “Sarge” Jackson, a retired sergeant from both the U.S. Army and the Knoxville Police Department and proprietor of Sarge’s BBQ on Texas Avenue (famous for its C’mon

Back Smoke) helped him get hired under a federal program at KPD. He was there for less than two years when the new safety director decided to eliminate the program. “I got laid off in June of ’76, and started law school in September of ’76. That’s when I met Richard Bean.” He counts the director of the Richard Bean Juvenile Detention Center as one of the three most influential men in his life, along with his father and longtime Republican political boss Loy Smith. Two old police officers, Rass Scruggs and Calvin Housewright, recommended that Bean hire Stokes while he was in law school. “I benefitted from the good ol’ boy system. I worked 3-11 and Juvenile Judge Richard Douglass gave me the key to his office with his law library and I’d sneak over to the court side to study. During finals, Richard would go home and eat supper and then come in and work for me while I’d go sit in the judge’s office and study. We were on the quarter system, so we’d go through this every two or three months, and Richard would take care of me because he wanted me to get through law school. We were kindred spirits. I brag about working full-time through law school, but if Richard hadn’t helped me, I never could have done it.” Stokes got his law degree in 1979 and joined the Army JAG Corps, where he served three years. Another thing Bean did for him was to introduce him to Bay Crawford, a schoolteacher from Roanoke who worked at Shannondale Elementary School. They’ve been married for 33 years, have two daughters, three granddaughters and a grandson on the way. They are also active mem-

or the better part of their waking hours every day, children between the ages of five and eighteen are in school or involved in school-related activities. That

is simply a fact. And because these thirteen formative years are so critical to the fullest development of children, parental and societal expectations for the role of a school partner during those years should be extremely high. After all, a child will only experience these school-age years once in his/her lifetime. In that context, at the very least, the school partnership should provide children with three important gifts. The first gift is to inspire and nurture highly literate young people in important and relevant matters particular to the evolving world in which we all live. For children to succeed and be fulfilled in their adult lives beyond high school and college, they are going to need to know a certain body of information and, more importantly, be able to access and harness that information to answer new challenges and solve new problems. Plain and simple: those who will succeed and be fulfilled in tomorrow’s world with the best jobs will be highly educated and expansive thinkers in relevant areas. The second gift that a school should offer a child is immersion in a culture where core habits and values that are universally recognized as foundational are prized. Being an honorable person, one who always does the right thing regardless of the circumstances, is a core value learned during these formative years. Cultivating the discipline to manage one’s day so that one can lead a productive and contributing life is another core habit that is also most often and best learned and reinforced in these school-age years. The third gift that a school partner should provide is a broad network of opportunities for young people to discover new passions and areas of interest. Whether it is an elementary student learning Mandarin Chinese or modern dance, a middle school student building a robot, or an eleventh grader taking a forensic or anatomy course; school partners should, through their course offerings and extracurricular activities, encourage and inspire students to stretch and discover new passions. Webb School of Knoxville prides itself in being a superior school partner. We take very seriously the challenge to provide all three of these gifts to each and every student; and we spend considerable time, energy, thought, and resources to ensure that those gifts are delivered. To learn more about the opportunities available at Webb School of Knoxville, we invite you to peruse our website at www.webbschool.org.

A deacon’s heart

TAVR gives Cumberland Gap man new life Atrial defibrillation. Congestive heart failure. Pulmonary hypertension. Chronic obstructive pulmonary disorder. Mitral valve stenosis. Severe aortic stenosis. Ray Rogers of Cumberland Gap had it all. “Multiple comorbidities” is what doctors called it. But in plain English, it simply meant that so many things had gone wrong with Rogers’ 74-year-old body that his future was on the bleaker side of bleak. “It makes you feel like it’s about over,” Rogers recounted. “You say, ‘Well, I’m a short-timer,’ which I could be anyway … doesn’t really matter to me because I’m a winner either way because I know where I’m going when I leave here. That’s the main thing. Still, it dampens your spirit, like you might as well hang it up and not be worrying about anything. But then, there’s always hope.” So, it was hope -- and what Rogers called “one of the prettiest prayers he ever heard” by cardiologist Dr. Clint Doiron -- that sent the long-time Baptist deacon to Parkwest Medical Center where the doctor hoped his patient could qualify for a much-needed lifesaving procedure known as transcatheter aortic valve replacement (or TAVR). In TAVR, the diseased aortic valve is replaced with a prosthetic fashioned from the valve of a cow delivered via a catheter inserted either through the femoral artery or the rib cage. It’s available at only 150 hospitals nationwide because it requires a high-tech surgical suite staffed by a team of specially trained surgeons. Parkwest was the first Knoxville hospital to offer it, performing its first TAVR last June on an 88-year-old Knoxville man. Since then, Parkwest’s TAVR team of Dr. Chadwick Stouffer, Dr. Thomas Pollard, Dr. Nicholaos Xenopoulos, Dr. Lee Collins and Dr. Mike Ayres have performed more than 40 TAVR procedures. Even so, TAVR isn’t for everyone. Only patients deemed inoperable for open-heart surgery are eligible for the procedure. So when Rogers – on a walker and carrying a portable oxygen tank along with all of his “multiple comorbidities” – plodded into the Parkwest Valve Center, the TAVR doctors weren’t sure he could be helped. Although deemed inoperable for the traditional open-heart surgery, Rogers had so many other heart and lung issues it was unclear whether TAVR would benefit him. “When we initially saw Mr. Rogers, he had critical and very symptomatic aortic stenosis with recent admissions for heart failure,” said Sheilah Vartan, the Valve Center’s nurse navigator. “Complicating his situation was that he had significant disease in his mitral valve and severe pulmonary hypertension. The TAVR

“God has given me some extra time,” Rogers testifies. “I don’t know why, but He has.”

A Baptist deacon, Rogers credits Parkwest surgeons – and the Great Physician – with giving him ‘extra time.’

team decided that he would not be a candidate for TAVR, and his condition appeared terminal.” There was, however, a way to make Rogers more comfortable – a balloon valvuloplasty, a procedure in which a tube with a deflated balloon on its tip is inserted through the groin and then guided into a narrowed heart valve where the balloon is inflated to open up the valve. Two weeks later, a like-new Rogers returned for a follow-up appointment – no longer on home oxygen, no longer on a walker and less short of breath. “It was apparent that his aortic valve was the primary source of his symptoms and heart failure,” said Vartan. Rogers’ dramatic improvement led the TAVR team to believe that he could benefit from TAVR after all. So, when the balloon valvuloplasty began to falter three months later, the team sprang into action. On Oct. 22, 2012, they im-

planted the new valve into Rogers’ heart. Of course, the diseased mitral valve remained unchanged, but the new valve replacement so improved Rogers’ heart function that he spent two hours shopping with his wife, Opal, at the mall the day after Christmas. “I was able to do that by the grace of the good Lord – let’s not forget Him,” said Rogers, a modern-day Lazarus wearing a cap emblazoned with the words “Jesus Did It.” “You won’t find better heart surgeons anywhere than you will at Parkwest,” he declares. “But I know who the Great Physician is, and we always have Him to thank first.” He also hails Parkwest’s nursing staff as “the best.” “The reason I know that is because I’ve been to all of ’em,” he said. “Now that’s not taking anything away from any of the other

Rogers plans to spend this summer working in his garden and orchard.

hospitals because they were great to me when I was there, but Parkwest was the best.” Months after the TAVR, Rogers’ wife says that commitment continues. “Sheilah doesn’t go more than two weeks without calling this house to see how Ray is doing,” she said. “They check on you. They want to make sure you’re doing OK. They are awesome!” Opal Rogers is likewise amazed at the difference she sees in her husband’s health. He hasn’t had to use the home oxygen since a week after the TAVR surgery, and he’s already planted this year’s garden – onions, lettuce, cabbage, green beans and tomatoes are in the offing this summer. She laughs about the visits Ray used to make – before the TAVR surgery – to Lincoln Memorial University where their family physician and friend, Dr. Chris Yonts, an assistant professor of family medicine, would let aspiring

medical students listen to her husband’s heart. “They were hearing a heart that they’ve never heard before – one that would beat normal for three or four seconds and then go bbbbrrrrrrrrrrrrrr,” said Rogers. Yonts, meanwhile, says the once “whooshing murmur” of Rogers’ heart doesn’t sound quite the same now. “He’s an amazing man,” said Yonts. “God has given me some extra time,” Rogers testifies. “I don’t know why, but He has. I’m not really supposed to be here. I’ve had two or three of those doctors tell me, ‘Man, you amaze me!’ And I wondered, ‘Why? I’m no different than anybody else.’ But evidently, I was supposed to have left here. I guess the good Lord kept me around to keep these doctors in a good mood.” For more information, call 373-PARK (7275) or visit TreatedWell.com.

‘Never-Ever’ senior tennis For seniors in the Knoxville area who are interested in having fun while staying healthy, look no further than the NeverEver Senior Novice Tennis Program. Folks over age 50 can participate and receive basic instruction.

Kids and dogs Penny Williams, publicity coordinator for Humans and Animals Learning Together (HALT), knows a few things about kids and dogs.

Carol Zinavage

Sara Barrett

“We don’t check birth certificates, though,” said program representative Bob Roney. Which means if you’re 48, you can still play. “The ‘never-ever’ part means seniors who have never, ever played before can learn how to play,” said Roney. He learned to play 18 years ago and continues to play at age 78. More than 1,000 people have learned to play the game since the program began in 1990. It has received both national and state recognition. Seniors will teach seniors under the direction of Knoxville’s city tennis director, Diedra Dunn. “There won’t be some young buck trying to impress you by how good he is. In fact, many of the seniors who have graduated from past programs have

Never-Ever senior tennis participants Betty Campbell and Ruth Fox Photo submitted come back to help teach. No experience is required. You don’t even have to have your own equipment because loaner racquets are available. A $15 fee covers nine hours of lessons. Lessons will be held 6-7:30 p.m. Tuesdays and

Thursdays, May 14-30, at Tyson Family Tennis Center. Registration forms are available at Knox County senior citizen centers and at Tyson and West Hill tennis centers. Info: Lynne Keener, 6937287 or Bob Roney, 9715896.

Senior service directory

In 2011, the city of Knoxville and Knox County’s Office on Aging printed 50,000 senior service directories that list everything in the area from home repair and legal services to pet services and support groups. The center ran out of copies last month and is now ready for the release of its 18th edition. A launch party will be held 2-4 p.m. Tuesday, April 23, at the John T. O’Connor Senior Center, 611 Winona St. Copies will be available for the public, and sponsors of the book will be on hand for a meet and greet. Info: 524-2786.

Today (Monday, April 22), the first of four groups of teens – five in each group – will begin training with the dogs for seven days, one dog to one teen. Then another group will come, and so on, each week for four weeks. And here’s a delightful surprise: the young folks don’t know it’s a therapeutic program.

“They’re not that different,” she says. “They want to know three things: Who’s in charge? What are the rules? Where do I fit in?” Williams and others work with troubled teens in order to help them find the answers to these questions. And they use some unlikely teachers in doing so. Shelter dogs. Yep, good ol’ mutts. Since 1987, HALT, which is affiliated with the UT College of Veterinary Medicine, has been providing dogtraining programs for youth in the state’s custody. The kids have landed there for various reasons: substance abuse, family issues, alienation from society. The dogs, of course, have landed in the shelter for various reasons, too. Twice a year, five lucky pups are chosen, usually from Young-Williams

that they can be adopted. But miracles can happen in a week. “You should see the change in the kids from day one to the day they leave. They’ve not only learned to work with the dogs, they’ve learned a great deal about themselves.” Graduation day, according to Williams, is “very emotional.” Predictably, many of the kids want to take “their” dog home. The rules prohibit this, but adoption is very much a priority, and HALT boasts a 100 percent success rate in that area, appearing with the dogs at PetCo in advance of each four-week program, so that each dog can go right into a loving home afterwards. Part of the program is dedicated to education about pet ownership: the importance of spay/neutering, proper medical care and nutrition, necessary expenses involved in pet care. It’s clearly a life-changing event for many of the kids. “They discover strengths that they didn’t know they had.” Chances are good that the lessons the kids learn at HALT will spread to other areas of their lives. And five formerly unwanted dogs get new homes. Everyone wins! For more info about HALT, or to adopt a HALT dog, visit www.vet.utk.edu/halt/.

Provision success story

gives advice for making a lifestyle change By Shana Raley-Lusk As one of Provision’s biggest success stories, Mindy Schutz-Fee knows what it takes to make dreams of a healthy lifestyle become a reality. Through her involvement at Provision, Mindy has made a healthy diet and regular exercise part of her everyday routine. Provision’s unique classes and one-on-one approach have made all the difference for her. “The class that I feel helped me the most in reaching my goal is spin class,” Mindy says. “The first time I took it, I loved how it made me feel powerful.” The energy of the group dynamic added to Mindy’s overall experience and kept her coming back to spin class time and time again. “The next day, my thighs and rear end hurt so badly, I did not know if I could do it again,” she says. “I reminded myself how good I felt spinning, so I decided not to give up. Eventually my body got used to it.” Provision’s nutrition classes have helped Mindy make smart dietary choices. “I started looking at the labels and seeing what my food

was actually made of,” she says. “I learned from my dietitian what foods I needed to be eating for the goal I wanted to reach. She helped me to make healthier food choices that were more conducive to the new lifestyle I wanted.” Because the nutrition classes required accountability from Mindy, they enabled her to see a true picture of what she was eating on a dayto-day basis. “I found it was easier for me to lie to myself but not my dietitian. In my mind, things did not seem as bad until I said it out loud,” she says. When it comes to advice for others looking to make a change, Mindy says patience is key. “I also think nowadays people think things should happen quickly and without effort,” Mindy says. “Changing your lifestyle takes time. It is a gradual change. It is work.” The first step, in Mindy’s opinion, to making a lasting change is to go to Provision and enlist the help of a professional dietitian. Secondly, it is crucial to get the help of a professional trainer, which is always available through Provision.

As for Mindy, she is still making changes and improving her lifestyle one day at a time. “I am still working out and keeping with eating healthier foods,” she says. “I want to push my workouts to another level and tone my body more. I am working with (Provision chief dietitian Casey Peer) in changing and adding foods to help me with this.” Mindy credits the staff at Provision for changing her outlook on being fit and healthy. “I feel that the main difference between Provision and other gyms is that Provision has highly trained people that genuinely care for their members,” she says. “They know it is not just about the workouts, it is about changing your ideas about the food you eat. They are there to help and guide you in this journey.”
