➤ Add your voice If you want to complain later about the “rules” the town has for architectural design, get thyself to Farragut Town Hall on June 5. The town is creating a comprehensive set of architectural-design guidelines, and they are asking for input. The guidelines, “to enhance community image and help implement the objectives of the 2012 Comprehensive Land Use Plan update,” are intended to promote consistency and quality design in the town’s commercial, mixed-use and multifamily districts. At the workshop, the guidelines will be available for study and illustrated for ease of understanding for the nonarchitects and engineers among us. Participants at the meeting will be asked for feedback on design objectives and discuss issues. The workshop is at 6 p.m. Info: Ashley Miller, amiller@ or 6752384.

Michael Messing will return to entertain with his magic show as part of the Summer Library Club special events. He will be at the Farragut Branch at 11:30 a.m. and 2 p.m. Wednesday, July 9.

Will fill kids’ summer with books, prizes By Sherri Gardner Howell No-school summers don’t mean the brain needs to completely veg out. Reading is one way to keep children engaged in learning during the summer, and the Knox County Library system wants to make it fun. Back for the 10th year, Summer Library Club kicked off last weekend with Children’s Festival of Reading at World’s Fair Park. On hand to encourage reading, a love of books and signing up for the Summer Library Club were a host of dignitaries – from the Sisters Grimm and Mr. Lemoncello (and their authors, Michael Buckley and Chris Grabenstein), Dolly’s Penguin Players and a host of children’s authors and storytellers. The fun begins today as children signed up for the program start counting their hours of reading or number of books being read to them. The payoff for Fizz…Boom…READ!, this year’s club motto, is a prize and a coupon book worth more than $200 in free eats and treats and admission to area attractions, including the Knoxville Zoo and Titanic. Each of the branch libraries is participating in Summer Library Club, and the Farragut branch always makes a great showing. Marilyn Jones, Farragut branch

manager, says they have more than 2,000 children who typically sign up for the program in Farragut. “We are usually one of the higher ones in numbers,” says Jones. “With the option to sign up online as well as in the library, it’s easier for busy parents.” There are no required books, although the website and library have suggested books for each age group if parents or children need helping selecting a good book to read. To complete the program, “listeners” must listen to 40 books being read to them and “readers” under age 12 must read for 20 hours. Teens must read five books, which can include any books on their school’s summer reading lists. “As soon as they finish, they can come in the library and get their prizes,” says Jones, “which I encourage them to do so we don’t run out. At first, 20 hours sounds like a lot, but we recommend reading 20 minutes a day, so that’s certainly doable.” With good book choices, the 20 minutes easily stretches into more, says Jones, and some children will finish in a month. The Farragut library will also have special programs to encourage a love of books and reading that are free and geared to complement the Summer Library Club. “We always have our weekly Storytime and Bookworm programs and our Wednesday craft programs, which are good reasons to come back to the library,” says

government Gloria Johnson: Glide path to reelection If anyone is on a glide path to easy re-election it seems to be state Rep. Gloria Johnson, who squeaked out a 299-vote win 18 months ago to win a seat in the House of Representatives. It was a district Mitt Romney carried by 1,100 votes, but several Romney voters pushed the button for Johnson, who has become one of the most popular legislators among Democrats and least popular among Republicans (who control the House by a 71 to 28 margin.)

Victor Ashe

The district is located mostly inside the city of Knoxville, stretching from Alice Bell to Sequoyah to South Knox County. Johnson has an uncanny sense of public relations and has made herself the poster child for those who dislike Common Core, Knox Schools Superintendent Jim McIntyre and the current GOP leadership. Team Rogero is strongly behind Johnson with its political operatives. In 2012, she made headlines and gave TV interviews against the closure of Belle Morris School as a voting precinct. She received huge publicity while her GOP opponent remained silent. This established her as a public-relations pro. As for Belle Morris, it is still not a voting place. Johnson has been criticized for not voting at all on some legislation, such as the constitutional amendment to ban a state income tax that will be on the ballot this November. She hosted a fund-raising event May 10 in Knoxville for Nashvillian Brandon Puttbrese, who is opposing incumbent state Sen. Thelma Harper, one of only two African-American Democratic women in the state Senate. Puttbrese is white. Harper has served since 1990. ■ The two Republicans who seek to replace her have not laid a glove on her to date while they are fighting each other. They are Jason Emert and Eddie Smith. Emert recently emailed this writer that, “It is unfortunate that (Smith) was terminated from his position at Sevier Heights (Baptist

Church) for cause.” When asked, Smith denied it and secured a statement from the senior pastor, Dr. Hollie Miller, that said, “Eddie Smith served at Sevier Heights Baptist Church for over 13 years and was ALWAYS one of the most faithful and effective staff members I’ve ever known. Eddie resigned his position simply because God placed a desire in his heart to make a positive difference in the government of Tennessee. The report that Eddie Smith was fired from Sevier Heights is a lie of the ugliest sort.” Score one for Smith in his battle with Emert in the August GOP primary. He faces a much tougher contest with Johnson in November. Johnson could stumble, but don’t count on it. ■ Republican Martin Daniel, who is opposing Rep. Steve Hall in the August GOP primary, is making the Rogero tax hike an issue on his campaign Facebook page. “Just remember those automatic pay raises for city employees that the City Council left intact. ...” In fairness to Hall, he has opposed tax hikes, but it is telling that Daniel feels it helps him in a Republican legislative primary to go after Rogero and her spending policies. Daniel is running in a west and northwest Knox district. He feels Hall will only say “me too” on opposing Rogero and taxes. Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett is holding the line on any tax increase, as is Gov. Bill Haslam. ■ Attending the April 24 fund-raiser for Chief Justice Gary Wade’s campaign to win retention on the Supreme Court at the Pete and Cindi DeBusk home was a who’s who of Republican leaders with a few Democrats. ■ Wade is a Democrat with strong Republican ties. Jim Haslam II, father of Gov. Haslam, U.S. Rep. Jimmy and Lynn Duncan, former UT coach Phil Fulmer, former Gov. Don and Martha Sundquist, former Rep. Bill Jenkins, state Sen. Doug Overbey, along with Democratic judges Harold Wimberly and Daryl Fansler, were there. ■ The state Supreme Court will choose the next state attorney general in September for an eight-year term. Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey wants a Republican to be chosen.

Catching up with the ‘real’ governor Ever hear of Arthur Copeland? You will. He’s about to become the poster boy of Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey’s campaign to unseat three Tennessee Supreme Court justices who are up for a “retention” election (supreme court justices are not elected outright, but the voters are given the opportunity to say whether they should get another eight-year term). Chief Justice Gary Wade, plus justices Sharon Lee and Cornelia Clark all received high marks from the panels empowered to evaluate them, with Wade and Lee receiving perfect scores and Clark getting one “no” vote. If there’s a Democrat Republicans like, it’s Wade, a respected Sevier County lawyer who managed to get himself elected mayor of Sevierville six times despite that county’s bedrock GOP leanings. He’s a personal friend of (and former coowner of the Smokies baseball team with) Gov. Bill Haslam and was appointed to the state Court of Criminal Appeals by Gov. Ned McWherter in 1988 and elevated to the state Supreme

Betty Bean Court by Gov. Phil Bredesen in 2006. (He was also Dolly Parton’s first boyfriend, as per DP herself during an appearance on Johnny Carson’s “Tonight Show” in the mid-’80s, during which she mentioned tomfoolery in the back of a pickup truck at the Midway Drive-In Theater, which doesn’t have a thing to do with jurisprudence but sure couldn’t hurt him any.) But back to Arthur Copeland: Think Willie Horton, the one-man crime wave who, while serving a life sentence without the possibility of parole for first-degree murder, somehow got eligible for Massachusetts’ prison furlough program and committed rape, armed robbery and assault while enjoying his short-lived freedom, thus becoming the only issue anybody remembers from the 1988 presidential election campaign when Democrat Michael Dukakis

took on George H.W. Bush. Bush’s man Lee Atwater orchestrated a barrage of attack ads featured scarylooking-black-man mug shots. Copeland’s got scarylooking-black-man mug shots, too, from when he was convicted of a 1998 contract killing in Maryville and sentenced to death. Death penalty conviction appeals cases are mandatory (the high court must decide whether the crime was “proportionate” to the penalty), but meanwhile, Copeland’s alleged accomplice’s lawyer Herb Moncier unearthed proof that the state had withheld evidence that its only eyewitness had named a different shooter when first questioned. In 2007, the high court addressed the “proportionality” issue (ruling that the death penalty was warranted), but by the time it got back to Blount County the case was bollixed beyond repair by Moncier’s discovery of the withheld evidence. A special prosecutor came in and cut a deal with Copeland for a seconddegree murder plea and a 14-year sentence. He was

released in 2011 and rearrested in 2013 for the alleged rape of his girlfriend. This charge was dismissed three months later in Knox County. Meanwhile, Ramsey, who likes it when people call him the “real” governor, is running around the state presenting his case against the sitting justices, which not only fits perfectly with the state GOP’s “Red to the Roots” campaign to rid Tennessee of Democratic officeholders but serves as bait to entice big-money 501 (c) (4) “social welfare” organizations like the Koch brothers’ “Americans for Prosperity” into Tennessee, where they have heretofore declined to spread the wealth on the “why buy the cow if the milk is free” principle. It also gives Ramsey an opportunity to screw with a friend of the guy who’s where Ramsey thinks he ought to be – conveniently dismissing the inconvenient fact he got only 22 percent of the primary vote and finished a distant third when he ran for governor. Free advice for Gary Wade: Call Dolly. Ramsey’ll die of envy.

as the ball drifted. The referee signaled wide right. “It was just a chip shot,” said Wright years later. “I should have kicked it right through. As it was, I thought the ball went straight over the right upright. It became a judgment call.” Warren thought the kick was good and got in the referee’s face. Assistant coach Vince Gibson landed facedown on the ground, beating the grass with his fists. Wright went to the sidelines where the big rolled-up tarpaulins were parked. “I wished I could crawl inside one and stay until the next week. I cried a lot. That’s the worst thing I’ve ever been through. I wore

my roommate’s monogrammed sweater so people would think I was somebody else.” Two years later, Tennessee lost the Orange Bowl to Oklahoma, 26-24. Karl Kremser thought the Vols should have won. His 44yard field-goal attempt in the closing moments also drifted right. This was a snapshot of the fine line between victory and defeat, the awful difference in agony and ecstasy. Kremser felt he had let down those who had fought so hard to get so close. He was certain his heart was broken. At 4 in the morning, he was still in a remote corner of the hotel lobby, face in

Getting ready for school Since our retirement several years ago, I have to admit that I have become rather lazy when it comes to getting up in the morning. But I am usually awake when the school bus passes our home around 7 a.m., and it reminds me how early parents and children must get up to get ready for school. In reflecting on those “good old days,” I often consider how times have changed since the 1950s in rural Farragut. And I doubt that many school kids today would understand the challenges we had to deal with in a rural community. First, most households today have central heat and air that can be adjusted by simply touching a thermostat, so getting the house warm before taking a bath is easy. But in rural Far-

Malcolm Shell

ragut, most homes were heated with coal. And on cold mornings we had to fill the coal hamper, which was outside the house. That was usually a chore done by the school kids. Likewise, I am sure most homes in our area today have indoor baths with clean, hot water, but taking a bath before school in our household was a challenge. We were fortunate to have had an indoor bathroom, but a utility district was a decade away. However, we were more

fortunate than most in that we had dug a well, and everything was great as long as there were no long periods of rain. After periods of rain, the water was often muddy. Many families without wells had to heat water on the stove to take a bath. It was always a treat to visit my brothers and sisters in Knoxville and enjoy a hot shower with clean water. I am not sure how students today eat breakfast, but breakfast at our home was a family-participation event. My mother always cooked a full breakfast every morning – country ham, sausage or bacon along with eggs and hot homemade biscuits. And the family enjoyed breakfast together. My father always helped with the cooking, and his specialty was making gravy

to the perfect consistency. Indeed, the Cracker Barrel could have taken a lesson from him in making gravy. We ate breakfast early because that gave me time to wash the dishes. A few days ago, I had occasion to meet a couple of my friends at the local McDonald’s to discuss a business matter over breakfast. McDonald’s is located almost adjacent to the present-day Farragut High School, and I was amazed at the number of young students who were enjoying breakfast there. I asked a couple of them if they ever ate breakfast at home. One said: “Yeah, we have Pop-Tarts sometimes.” That is not surprising since the societal environment has changed so much over the past 50 to 60 years.

his hands, stomach in knots, real tears in his red eyes. Do not miss kicks and sit in a corner, face in hands, stomach in knots. Go to kicking camp. Ah yes, a kick to remember … Jacksonville, 1957 Gator Bowl. Tennessee beat Texas A&M, 3-0, on Sammy Burklow’s fourth-quarter field goal. It was a pretty little thing of 17 yards, just enough to spoil Paul “Bear” Bryant’s final appearance with the Aggies. All that evening was happy hour for the Tennessee family. Eventually, those gathered in Gen. Robert R. Neyland’s hotel suite persuaded him to demonstrate the winning kick. The game ball just happened to be at the athletic director’s fingertips. Neyland gave the ball a swift kick and smashed the

dresser mirror. Oh my, that made quite a mess. More normal festivities resumed, and after two more glasses of iced tea with lemon, kicking technique came up for more discussion. Scrappy Moore, Chattanooga coach, stepped up to prove a point. His kick broke a window. Weeks later, the bill for damages landed on the general’s desk. He paged Gus Manning, then business manager, and asked in no uncertain terms who had torn up a room in Jacksonville. “General, that was the famous kicking exhibition,” said Manning, trying to keep a straight face. “Oh that,” said Neyland. “Well, don’t just stand there, pay the bill.”

Today it’s common for both parents to work, and that doesn’t leave much time to prepare breakfast. My mother never worked outside of the home, so cooking breakfast was not something she was rushed to do. Also, fast-food restaurants that served breakfast such as Hardee’s or McDonald’s were still years in the future, so eating breakfast out before school was not an option even if we could have afforded to do so. And finally, the unpardonable sin was missing the school bus. That meant a two-mile walk to school and the hope that someone would pick me up. As I look back on it now, I think the challenges we faced in getting ready for school, and particularly the many chores we had to do before and after school, created a sense of responsibility and helped develop a positive work ethic. Almost all the kids in

Old Concord grew up to be successful citizens who had careers in a variety of fields. And I am sure we never felt economically disadvantaged, even though by today’s standards we probably would fit that category. It was just the way things were, and since all families in the Village lived under similar conditions, the thought of being poor never came to mind. And even those kids who never had the opportunity to go to college were, through drive and ambition, gainfully employed, and several excelled. For example, one became the general manager of a large Home Depot after starting as a sales associate. Others became successful building contractors and small business owners. Did the challenges faced in growing up in a small, rural community contribute to their success? I tend to think that it did.

Filling needs, giving voice By Sherri Gardner Howell

Christos Papakastos dances with Maria Siopsis, leader of the St. George Greek Orthodox Church dancers, during a workshop held last week at the church.

Greek dance expert visits St. George By Wendy Smith The moves may be different, but traditional dance is alive and well in Greece, says Christos Papakastos. The expert in dance, music, folklore and anthropology teaches at the University of Athens. He taught a dance workshop at St. George Greek Orthodox Church last week as part of a whirlwind tour of the U.S. St. George dancers were joined by members of the Oak Ridge Folk Dancers at the workshop.

During a break, Papakastos demonstrated his expertise with musical instruments and discussed how traditional dance and music varies from country to country. Time signatures and scales differ with region, he said. Dancing continues to play an important role in Greek culture. Some dances are related to a particular season, like one that is performed this time of year to bring rain. Youth between the ages of 12 and 14 adorn themselves with leaves and dance from villa to villa while observers

douse them with water. Another celebrates the coming together of people from all nationalities who consider Greece their home – like a Greek homecoming. That happens in mid-August, he said. While young people still dance, it’s a small part of their lives, and the moves are different. His son is learning to dance, but it’s hard to teach your own kid, he says. The teen has joined a friend’s dance group, rather than his father’s. “My life now is much more easy,” Papakastos laughs.

At Grace Baptist Church and Grace Christian Academy, a cry for help went out for members and students to be a “Voice for the Voiceless.” The response was overwhelming. Through the church’s Charis (Greek word for “grace”) program, the needs of children in foster care were examined, with volunteers learning that children of all ages often enter the fostercare system in emergency situations, bringing nothing from home. A duffel bag with age-appropriate clothing and personal items for each child is a serious need for the foster-care system. Taking on the challenge were co-coordinators Heather Dyer, Amy Bryant, Shannon Ray and Rachael Robbins. Pink and blue duffel bags with the Charis logo were ordered, lists of needed items were distributed and four Sundays in May were set aside to collect the items and fill the bags. The group set a goal of supplying 200 bags to children in foster care. “Some kids come into custody with nothing more

than the clothes on their backs,” said Bryant. “Some come with a few belongings thrown into a trash bag. We want to give them a duffel bag filled with some personal and comfort items of their own, something that will give them hope and dignity.” The goal of 200 bags was exceeded the first Sunday, May 4, of the drive. A new goal of 350 was set, and the students at Grace Academy got involved. With still one Sunday to go, the second goal was exceeded, and a new goal of 700 – the number of children currently in foster care in Knox County – looks to be within reach, said the excited coordinators. Work sessions to coordinate the needs, sign up volunteers and collect the bags brought out all ages, from grandparents to preschoolers. Each bag contains age-appropriate items such as socks; underwear, pull-ups or diapers; sweat pants and Tshirts; a summer and a winter outfit; a “You Are Special” book; toy; pillow; and Bible. The Voice for the Voiceless drive will conclude on Sunday, May 25.

So many volunteers! The project to fill duffle bags to give to foster children gets a great response at Grace Baptist Church.

Capstone Projects build leadership

Students presenting their Capstone Projects are Aaron Waldrupe, Jacquie Downey, Grant Bruer, Heather Grubbs and Chris Patti.

Three join CAK staff Christian Academy of Knoxville is pleased to announce the addition of three excellent educators to its team of faculty, staff and administration.

Elementary School Principal Kelly Kennedy Kelly Kennedy will start as principal of CAK’s elementary school July 1. “I so thoroughly enjoyed getting to know Kelly through the search process. Kelly is a committed believer and an outstanding educator,” Neu said. Kennedy, originally from Birmingham, Ala., has spent the last six years at the Episcopal Collegiate School in Little Rock, Ark., where she is the founding Head of the Lower School. “I was a part of the building process and opening of the school, so that definitely makes it very difficult to leave here,” Kennedy said. “At the same time, I’m fully aware that there are good things and positive aspects of change. I’m a firm believer in personal and professional growth and development. There’s something to be said about someone new coming in, picking up and continuing the great things already hap-

pening while fostering further forward momentum. I think that’s going to happen here (at Episcopal) and I’m hopeful that will happen at CAK.” Kennedy received her bachelor’s degree in elementary education and special education from Baylor University and her masters in educational technology from Texas A&M. “I do feel like I have a strong educational background particularly in curriculum development and elementary education,” Kennedy said. “I’ve also done a lot of work around integrating 21st century skills into an elementary division of a school.” Kennedy describes herself as a warm and caring person and hopes to quickly get to know all of CAK’s elementary students and families. “If you know children well, you can serve them well,” she said. “One of the things I believe in strongly is working to ensure that every decision is centered around what is best for the child.” As Kennedy prepares to pack up and relocate to Knoxville in the next few months, she did admit to some nerves about the initial transition. “There’s always a little fear with the unkown and change,” Kennedy said, “as it’s a late time of year to be making a

Elementary School Principal Kelly Kennedy with husband, Mike.

Five seniors presented their Capstone Projects this month in front of the entire high school. The Capstone Project is a two-year project in which students explore their passions and put them to work to make a local or global impact. “We highlighted five, but we very easily could have done more,” said Jamie Petrik, CAK Leadership Coordinator. “The effort that these students put into their projects this year was phenomenal. It was not just about a presentation, but about the

glory of God. We have many gifts here at CAK and praise God for everything these students did and will continue to do through their capstones.” The five student presenters were Aaron Waldrupe, Jacquie Downey, Grant Bruer, Heather Grubbs and Chris Patti. Waldrupe’s project focused on his passion for music, composing part of a symphony and putting together a concert of six pieces. Downey wrote a novel as she participated in a two-week writing workshop at Duke University.

Bruer programmed a video game. Grubbs organized and coached a cheerleading squad of 14 special needs girls, The Lemon Sharks. Patti climbed Mount Rainier in Washington to raise funds for a friend in need. “This is really designed to find what God has gifted you with so you can learn more about it and use it,” Waldrupe said. “This was very enjoyable for me because I was able to explore what it means to be a composer and what music means to me.”

ities and the people (at CAK).” While at Whitefield, East worked with Neu and while at Savannah Country Day School, East got to know CAK Assistant Head of School Donald Snider, who was at a rival school. “I absolutely look forward to working with them again,” East said. “Mr. Neu and I had a great working relationship and even though Donald and I were at rival schools, we worked together and it was very genuine. So I’m excited about that.” East has visited a few times and is well aware of the athletic program at CAK. “It’s a highly competitive program that represents the school in the way that you want it to,” East said. “I wouldn’t say my goal is to take it to the next level, because I think it’s already at the next level. I’m a builder; I want to be someone who will be there to help the coaches to continue to climb.” East mentioned that his philosophy is to work closely with coaches and to look at five facets of each program: students, facilities, budget, schedule and coaching staff. Through that analysis, the goals are: To better serve the

Lord, to improve, to have fun and to try to win championships. “I’m someone who loves to be at school events,” East said. “These are our students. I want to watch them in the musical, on the playing field and at choir. That’s why I love what I get to do, and I’m overwhelmed that I actually get to do it.” East will move to Knoxville with his wife of 37 years, Jeanne. They have three children, Emily (30), Jack (24) and Thomas (20).

Athletic Director John East

Athletic Director John East John East will start as CAK’s new athletic director June 1. “We are very blessed to be welcoming John East to our team at CAK,” said Head of School Bob Neu. “He is one of the most Godly people I know, and he brings a lot to the table both professionally and personally.” East comes to CAK from The Walker School in Marietta, Ga., where he served as Assistant Athletic Director and Head Football Coach for the past two years. Prior to his time at The Walker School, East served as Director of Athletics at Whitefield Academy (2004-2011), The Lovett School (1995-2004), Savannah Country Day School (1993-1995) and Metairie Park Country Day (1980-1993). “It’s really God’s blessing,” East said of the move to CAK. “I had no idea this would happen, but we feel the Lord leading us and we are very excited. I’ve been at a lot of different schools, and I very much like the size of the school, the facil-

Caitlin Hollifield Caitlin Hollifield has been hired as the new head coach of the girls basketball program. She will also serve as Assistant Athletic Director and will teach a couple of science classes in CAK’s high school. “We are very excited to welcome Caitlin Hollifield to the CAK community,” Neu said. “Her commitment to excellence in everything she does is very impressive. She is committed to the Lord and developing deep relationships with her students and players.”

Readers’ Café at A.L. Lotts Kindergartners in teacher Angie Johns’ class served up quite a selection last week during Readers’ Café, held in the cafeteria at A.L. Lotts Elementary. Each student wore a personalized chef hat made from a recycled grocery bag and entered the “café” with their book on a silver platter. Johns said they had been practicing reading their book in their “storytelling voice” for some time. Students read aloud for family and

friends. Guests were encouraged to listen to as many individual readers as possible after hearing their own child read. This helps the students become more comfortable speaking in public. “It’s just a good way for them to show off their reading skills,” said Johns. The annual event is also a combined celebration of Father’s Day and Mother’s Day, and parents receive a potted plant made by the student.

Farm direct and local items on the app include options as varied as local fruits and vegetables, wineries, greenhouses and

The website also posts directories of the state’s county fairs, equine trails and services, local meats and dairies, and agritourism farms and activities of all kinds. Going live in 1995, the Pick Tennessee Products site was the state of Tennessee’s first consumer Web presence. A completely free service, the site currently features close to 2,000 participating farms, processors and other ag and farm businesses, listing about 10,000 individual items.

Fresh and local are trademarks of Just Ripe By Bonny C. Millard The aroma of baking goods and simmering soup greets customers as they enter Just Ripe, a food store in downtown Knoxville that offers local and regional products as well as in-house treats such as biscuits, scones, vegetable tarts and quiche. The store, which recently celebrated its three-year anniversary, caters to those who are looking for locallygrown and produced food products. Co-owner Charlotte Tolley describes it as a healthy convenience store for those who work and live in the downtown area and others who make downtown Knoxville a destination. Prior to opening Just Ripe in the Daylight Building on Union Avenue, the downtown area didn’t have a convenient, ongoing option for buying fresh foods or other needed food items, she says. Tolley’s and coowner Kristen Faerber’s relationship with the Market Square Farmers’ Market made the store a natural fit. Tolley, who is a founder and long-time director of the market, and Faerber have both volunteered their time to make the farmers’ market a success. They also had a cart where they sold

The Oreo matrix You can figure how the economy’s doing by counting customers in the cookie aisle. That’s the gospel according to Steven C. Smith, president/CEO of Food City, who said, “Unemployed or underutilized people don’t go down the snack aisle or the cookie aisle.” And although the economy is coming back, there are slightly fewer people working today than in 2007, Smith said. Food City hosted lunch for media types last week in Sevierville. Speaking without notes, Smith gave a sharp analysis of the economy and the ways government interferes. He sounded, for a minute, like a fellow who is running for office. “Median income has declined in nine of the last 13 years,” he said, leaving grocers “chasing fewer dollars.” Smith said Food City has captured 52 percent of the

Sandra Clark

market against traditional food stores. But that drops to 26 percent when you factor in big-box stores, drug chains and others. Food City started in 1955 with Steve’s dad, the late Jack Smith, and one Piggly Wiggly store. The chain now has 107 stores, 77 pharmacies, 81 fuel centers, 13,000 associates and annual sales of $2.2 billion. “Thirteen percent of our company is owned by 8,000 of our employees through an ESOP,” he said. Food City serves 2.5 million customers in 980,000 households, he said. “We’re No. 1 or No. 2 in every market.”

Political challenges include the requirement that the company offer health insurance to associates working 30 hours or more per week. That’s a challenge for businesses that must staff for peak shopping times. Cutbacks in SNAP (supplemental nutritional assistance program, formerly known as food stamps) have hurt grocery sales. “One in five kids lives in poverty,” he said. “The poverty rate was 14.2 percent when we declared war (on it) in 1964. It’s 15 percent today.” Until this year, the Tennessee Legislature has forbidden wine sales in grocery stores, and the stores still must get petitions signed and a positive referendum before such sales can become effective in July 2016 (and then only in counties that now have package liquor or beer sales), he said. Food City will join other grocers to support this reform. Finally, families lose income when the breadwinner

roasted vegetable tarts and seasonal quiche, the store has a variety of choices for take-out lunch or breakfast. The Dixie Biscuit, a buttermilk biscuit made from scratch and stuffed with the pimento cheese, Applegate

bacon and house-made pepper jelly, is a popular item, she says. Faerber bakes the inhouse items using organic butter and other local, fresh ingredients. She also makes seasonal jams. Tolley says vegetable and fruit juice drinks are made to order but are based on what the store can get locally and seasonally. Apples and kale are available most of the time. The most popular juice is Lemonade Green, which is made of kale, celery, apple and ginger. The store is not far from the Lindsay Young Downtown YMCA, and people visit Just Ripe for a healthy drink af-

The store also offers a selection of cheeses and other dairy products from area farms such as Sweetwater Valley Farm and milk from Cruze Farm. Just Ripe offers locally-roasted coffee from Three Bears Coffee Company. The coffee can be purchased by the cup or by the pound. In addition to purchasing items from the menu, Just Ripe offers a pickup catering service. Info:

A country-filled experience excites Rotary student After arriving last July, Wenzl said she immediately discovered some of the seasonal activities of East Tennessee. Her first family, Dawn and Terry Moore, took her boating, skiing and tubing, which she had never done before. Wenzl laughed, and said, “I still have scars on my elbows.” They also introduced her to the beaches of North Carolina. “And then I experienced Knoxville’s greatest – UT football,” she said. The atmosphere in the stadium was great, and she enjoyed watching the game, although she admitted that she still doesn’t understand many of the rules. She explored the Gateway Arch in St. Louis and then stopped in Nashville for visit to the famed

By Bonny C. Millard An enthusiastic Jette Wenzl, a high school exchange student from Germany, shared her adventures of the past year in Knoxville and beyond with the Rotary Club of Farragut, which sponsored her trip. Wenzl, who participated in the Rotary Youth Exchange, fully immersed herself in local and national culture from country music and cowboy boots to University of Tennessee football to Orlando’s Disney World, New York’s treasures and Asheville’s Biltmore Estate. The exchange student from Uelzen, about an hour from Hamburg, spent the year as a student at Webb School and stayed with three different Webb families.

Jette Wenzl, a Rotary Youth Exchange student from Germany, spoke to the Rotary Club of Farragut about her adventures this past year. The club sponsored Wenzl’s trip.

Before she heads home in July, the 16-year-old will take a western trip and visit Yellowstone National Park and San Francisco along the way. She thanked the Rotary Club for sponsoring her, particularly Rotarians Bill Nichols and Nancy Welch, saying all helped make her year such a success. “It was an amazing time. The best year of my life…so far,” she added, generating laughter from the crowd. Members of her surrogate families and Webb School Multicultural Coordinator Elizabeth Gregor were on hand to hear Wenzl’s presentation.

Throughout her visit this past year, she has been able to participant in her host families’ celebrations at Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter and other gatherings. In December, she moved in with the Cate and Jim Biggs family. During the Christmas holidays, she traveled to New York City where she visited the Rockefeller Center and discovered her love for musicals when she saw “Matilda” on Broadway.

The Concord Christian School Class of 2014 includes (front) Emily Conner, Ayla LeCoultre, Heather Beal, Trysten Kienzl, Audreylee Hall, Brooke Stowell, Peyton Wakham; (back) Tristan Hightower, Tyler Goldberg, Jane Francis Nowell, Holden Hensley and Jessica Mitchum.

Congratulations, Class of 2014! Concord Christian School will celebrate Commencement at 7 p.m. Friday, May 23, in the First Baptist Concord Worship Center. We look forward to celebrating the achievements of our graduating seniors, and we welcome friends and family to campus for this exciting event. “We are proud of our second graduating class. They have risen to the challenges of academic excellence and spiritual maturity. We are excited to see God’s will come to fruition in each life,” said high school principal Amanda Lane. The 12 students in the class of 2014 represent the second CCS graduating class. As they prepare to receive their diplomas and celebrate their time as students at CCS, seniors took time to share memories and offer advice to future high school students. Jessica Mitchum, one of three students when have

attended since kindergarten, stated “Some of my fondest memories were from the school trips like Jamaica in 9th grade, Nicaragua in 11th grade and New York City in 12th grade. I have made memories that will last forever!” When asked what advice she would give to future CCS high school students, Heather Beal challenged them with, “Life is a thousand times better when you step out of your comfort zone and allow God to work through you.” CCS graduates are poised to do even more incredible things in the future. The graduates will be attending a variety of universities including: the University of Tennessee Chancellor’s Honors Program, Lee University, Maryville College, North Greenville University, Roanoke College, University of TN at Chattanooga, and Pellissippi State Community College. Their majors range

from bio-chemistry and political science to exercise science, sports management, education, psychology, business and communications. The seniors have been offered $1.4 million in scholarships. Concord Christian School is thrilled to announce that William Stokely III, chair of the Stokely Company, will be the 2014 Commencement Speaker. Stokely, a graduate of UT and former member of the UT football team, has held a variety of positions including president of his family’s Indiana-based food processing company, StokelyVan Camp, Inc. Stokely’s strong legacy of volunteer service to UT and the community continues with his active role serving on many boards as well as civic and cultural organizations. It’s an exciting time for the CCS Class of 2014. Regardless of where their journeys take them next, they’ll always be CCS Lions!

Up on the roof

Headmaster Pierce helps raise funds Headmaster Ruston Pierce recently spent the night up on the roof of Concord Christian School. This was on the heels of having his head shaved by a 4th grader and weathering a dousing of green slime, all in the name of fun. Students at CCS sold cookies and cheesecake to earn the right to slime school staff. Fourth grader C.J. Newton had the highest sales and gave Pierce a new, cooler haircut with some barber shears. Finally, Pierce promised to spend the night on the roof if the school met a sales goal. The students were thrilled to learn their results, and Pierce climbed up on the roof to enjoy a warm night in Farragut under the stars. “It was a great opportunity to inject fun into the school week,” Pierce said. “I would do it a hundred times more if it energized and supported our students.”

Student C.J. Newton shaves headmaster Ruston Pierce’s head with assistance from elementary principal Leigh Ledet.

Dr. Jesse Doers (far left) and Amanda Underwood, Critical Care manager (far right), presented the Janet Heffern Awards to CCU nurses Sara Dunham (left) and Regena Hughes (right). Dunham was given the New Graduate award, while Hughes earned the Clinical Coach award.

More than just a slogan

‘Nursing Excellence’ honored during National Nurses Week

Not all Clinical Excellence winners were in attendance, but those who were included, from left: Jeanette Converse, Endoscopy; Vicki Haidri, PACU; Shannon Pearson, Surgery; Roslyn Robinson, Senior Behavioral Health; Kellye Stone, CCU; Tristyn Schnelle, Case Management; Margaret Chambers, Infection Prevention; Lisa Greene, Float Pool; Seth Chaffins, Cath Lab; Karen Adkison, Utilization Management/Peninsula; Glenda Thomas, 4R; Lisa McGhee, Imaging; Debby Brenneman, PAT; Dana Stakely, ASU; Renee Satterfield, CTSU; and Cheryl Lewelling, 2M. west since 2009, was nominated by Michelle Dennis, Clinical Educator. In the nomination form, Dennis wrote of Price, “On a daily basis, Crystal assists staff, providing updates on processes important to the safety of the patient. She always goes above and beyond to make herself available to assist with staff education, working various shifts to ensure that her fellow nurses are aware of process improvements.” Price was presented with the award for Clinical Practice. The May 8 awards reception in Parkwest’s Boulevard Bistro not only recognized Baker Award recipients, but also excellence throughout the nursing staff of Parkwest and Peninsula. Dr. Jesse Doers of Stat Care Medical Group joined Amanda Underwood, Parkwest’s critical care nurse manager, to present the Janet Heffern Critical Care Scholarships. Established in 2011 by Stat Care Medical Group in honor of the long-time Parkwest critical care nurse who

passed away with cancer, the award annually recognizes new graduates and clinical coaches. “(Janet) had a motto: that she was a ‘life-long learner,’ ” said Underwood. “That is so important in our Critical Care environment. You have to have someone who wants to teach and is always willing to learn.” This year, the Janet Heffern New Graduate award was presented to Sara Dunham and the Clinical Coach award went to Regena Hughes. The Susan Foster Professional Development Award honors “Sue” Foster, a dedicated and respected registered nurse who served her profession in a variety of areas at Parkwest for more than 20 years. In recognition of her professionalism, clinical ability, mentoring and excellent customer service, the award is specifically designed to honor someone in pursuit of a nursing degree. Foster’s husband, Carl; daughters, Lauren and Alison; and grandchildren, Solomon and Izzy, attended

the award ceremony and took photos with this year’s Susan Foster Award winner, Stephanie O’Dell, RN in Parkwest’s Cath Lab. In 2000, Parkwest’s medical staff established a Clinical Excellence Award Scholarship to provide financial assistance for one nurse from each unit during National Nurses Week to use for educational funding. Since its inception, this award has been given to more than 280 nurses who have been able to attend national conferences in their specialty area. They then share their acquired knowledge with their peers to further cultivate best practices. The winners of this year’s Clini-

Wayne Heatherly 10-Foot Award Volunteer Appreciation Week Parkwest volunteers contributed more than 40,000 total hours in 2013. That translates to a whopping $914,293 value of hours volunteered! Each year, Parkwest recognizes its volunteers’ selfless dedication to serving visitors and patients at the Volunteer Appreciation Luncheon. If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a Parkwest Volunteer, contact Becky Boyd, Volunteer Services manager, at 373-1556. Morning volunteers are especially needed at this time.

This honor is given annually to one employee who daily demonstrates the Standards and Behaviors of Parkwest Medical Center. The award commemorates a hallmark of former Parkwest CAO Wayne Heatherly’s administration in that no employee should be within 10 feet of another employee, patient, visitor or volunteer without acknowledging this person in a pleasant manner. This year, the recognition went to Margaret Chambers, a well-known and loved charter employee.

We will never be able to thank our nurses enough, but we hope that this recognition ceremony is rewarding and lets them know that we appreciate all they do for our community, our hospital, our physicians and, most importantly, our patients.”

Doctors Day In March, Parkwest and Peninsula honored all of their talented physicians with a complimentary lunch in honor of National Doctors Day. Thank you to our committed physicians for serving our patients and our communities. (L to R) Drs. Jeff Robinson, Sommer Williams and Jennifer Mosley pose for a photo at Parkwest’s Doctors’ Day lunch.



On May 8, Parkwest held its Nurses Week reception to recognize nurses who go above and beyond in their mission to provide excellent care to each patient. This annual celebration is held in honor of National Nurses Week, an observation supported by the American Nurses Association to coincide with the birthday of Florence Nightingale, the founder of modern nursing. This year, National Nurses Week was May 6-12. Wendy Shock, Capacity Flow manager at Parkwest, and Crystal Price, Educator at Parkwest, were named winners of the 2014 Leanne Baker Professional Nurse Award, the most prestigious honor given to nurses of Parkwest and Peninsula Hospital. The award has two distinctions, one for Leadership and one for Clinical Practice. “Leanne Baker epitomized what a professional nurse looked like,” said Lynn Cagle, Chief Nursing Officer at Parkwest, speaking of the award’s namesake. “Her compassion for the patient, professional demeanor and steady leadership truly set the standard to which we hold all our nurses. That’s why it was such an honor to recognize these two deserving individuals who embody the spirit of this award.” Shock, a registered nurse since 1998, was nominated by Darrell Brackett, Director of Patient Care – Emergency department. In the nomination form, Brackett wrote of Shock, “She is committed to delivering excellent customer service and always does what is right for those we serve. She is also a problem-solver, assessing obstacles and offering solutions that positively affect patients, peers and physicians.” Shock was recognized for Leadership. Price, a BSN and educator at Park-

Coffee Break with

tunate to be able to go to some really neat places: Paris and London are probably at the top of the list. Most recently, I attended the Summer Olympics in London. I’d love to go to the Middle East; that’s problematic at this point. If I won the lottery tomorrow, I would travel.

What is one word others often use to describe you and why? Dynamo, because I am full of energy.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I would be a little taller!

What is your passion? Music – no question. And teaching – the most noble profession.

Angela Batey

With whom, living or dead, would you most like to have a long lunch? Johann Sebastian Bach

You see Angela Batey’s name in the newspaper a lot, especially around the holidays when she’s conducting one choral ensemble or another. That’s just the tip of the iceberg. Since 1995, Batey has been at the University of Tennessee, where she is one of the associate deans in the College of Arts and Sciences; director of choral activities, administrating the entire choral program; and associate head of the School of Music, overseeing the school’s graduate program. She directs UT’s Chamber Singers – she’s taking them to London and Canterbury next summer. And she’s in charge of the graduate choral conducting program. For nearly 16 years, she also has been the director of music at Farragut Presbyterian Church. She oversees the entire music ministry and directs the Chancel Choir and hand-bell choir, as well as the seasonal Farragut Singers and occasional instrumental ensembles. Just reading about all she does will wear out the average human, but she acts as though it’s no big deal. “The clue to it is just being organized,” says Batey. “I’m extremely organized. I always have been. That’s how I’m able to do that. I work very much in advance. I’ve already planned Christmas music for the end of this year.” Batey made time to talk at the end of a long day that included driving back from Louisville, where she was an adjudicator for Kentucky’s high school choral festival. Oh yeah, that’s something else she does for about six weeks each spring – travel to various festivals to serve as judge. “It’s really interesting,” she says, “and I love hearing the choirs.” Batey somehow will make room in her schedule for the 2014-15 UTK Leadership Class. About the only thing she doesn’t have time to do is read for pleasure; her reading tends to be for work. She squeezes a little bit into her summers, when she doesn’t teach full time. She’s a huge Harry Potter fan and says she’s “guilty” of re-reading the entire series in a week on occasion. She also enjoys historical fiction. Batey grew up during the time before home computers, when families had sets of the World Book encyclopedia to help the kids with homework. “I would frequently be guilty of going to look something up and while on the way to finding my subject get distracted and start reading about something else,” she says.

Other than your parents, who has had the biggest influence on your life and why? Batey was brought up in “a very small town” in Alabama and was raised in a Southern Baptist church. During her undergraduate years, she started working in church music ministries, beginning with a Presbyterian church. By the time she finished graduate school, she had also worked in Methodist, Episcopal and Baptist churches, developing a “wide ecumenical portfolio.” While doing her doctoral studies in North Carolina she was at a Presbyterian church and “began to soak in the theology, which matched my personal convictions.” Chief among those is accepting people as they are. “I was raised in the civil–rights era, and my parents raised me to be color blind,” she says. “That was very different from what was around me. I was raised that you treat people the same way regardless of color, creed or conviction. That’s what I firmly believe.” Sit back and have a Coffee Break as you get to know Angela Batey.

What is your favorite quote from TV or a movie? I’m not much of a television watcher, but I do love this line from “Harry Potter and the Philosopher’s Stone”: “Ah, music! A magic beyond all we do here!”

My aforementioned grandmother, Rubye Hamric, who passed away in 2012. I come from three generations of educators. She, and my parents, raised me to believe I could be and do anything.

I still can’t quite get the hang of … Excel spreadsheet formulas!

What is the best present you ever received in a box? A puppy!

What is the best advice your mother ever gave you? You can do anything you set your mind to doing!

What is your social media of choice? Facebook. I love how it allows you to make connections with friends from your past you would have never found otherwise.

What is the worst job you have ever had? I am really lucky in that I have been fortunate to have wonderful jobs throughout my career. My first one was a part-time summer job as a book binder repairer in a nonair-conditioned building.

What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon and why? I do love Roadrunner and how he always outsmarts Wile E. Coyote!

What are you guilty of? Being too intense!

What irritates you?

What is your favorite material possession?

People who do not follow through on commitments.

I don’t get hung up on material possessions, but I am extremely sentimental. There is a little book my grandmother had that is very special to me. In it, she wrote about her life; things and people that were important to her.

Farragut Presbyterian Church on Jamestowne Boulevard behind Fresh Market

What are you reading currently?

What is your greatest fear?

I am studying the score to Mozart’s Krönungsmesse (Mass No. 15 in C major, KV 317). The English translation is Coronation Mass. I’m considering doing that next spring with the students.

What are the top three things on your bucket list? I’ve always enjoyed traveling, and I’ve been really for-

What’s one place in Farragut everyone should visit?

Being submerged.

If you could do one impulsive thing, what would it be? Fly to Paris. It can be your neighbor, club leader, bridge partner, boss, teacher – anyone you think would be interesting to Shopper News readers. Email suggestions to Betsy Pickle, Include contact information if you can.
