Miracle Maker As the Knoxville Zoo’s outreach and outdoor science coordinator, Steve McGaffin has carted furry, scaly and feathery friends all over East Tennessee in the Zoomobile. But for the past two years, McGaffin has been attracting another sort of friend – the six-legged kind. It’s all part of the zoo’s educational outreach program.

Crippled Mule Point? I have always been fascinated by street names and their origin. For the most part, developers often name streets after their families or after street names they have seen in other areas. Some use the name of the former owner if it has historical significance (i.e. Smithfield subdivision). All the streets in our neighborhood are named after famous golf courses. But one street, Crippled Mule Point, has no relation to the others. That aroused my curiosity.

Raising a racquet Tennis group believes in saying, and playing, ‘Never’ By Betsy Pickle Judging by the looks of some Farragut participants, getting involved in the “Never-Ever” Senior Novice Tennis Program is almost like living in Never Land. Sandy Bradshaw, Bea Davis and Marjorie Raby are grown-ups, to be sure, but they appear to be much younger than their actual years. At the Frank R. Strang Senior Center to talk about “Never-Ever” along with program coordinators Lynne Keener and Bob Roney, most of the group seems to be right around retirement age. The “official” numbers span from 71 to 91, but even a midway carny would likely miss his guess. “Tennis is good for you,” says Keener, who is retired from the Department of Energy in Oak Ridge. “It keeps you young.” The 2013 edition of “NeverEver” launched last Tuesday and welcomed 30 participants. It continues from 6 to 7:30 p.m. on Tuesdays and Thursdays for the next two weeks at the Tyson Park Family Tennis Center, 2351 Kingston Pike. The Knoxville Parks and Recreation program is designed to teach people age 50 and older who have never played – or who haven’t picked up a racquet in years – how to play tennis. “When we start, we talk about how to stand, how to hold the racquet, how to move,” says Roney, a retired teacher and college administrator. “A lot of people who take this haven’t moved – except to go from the couch to the refrigerator and bathroom – in years, and so we have to deal with footwork. A lot of times, that’s one of the hardest things for people to get done.”

A few of the “Never-Ever” Senior Novice Tennis Program participants pose for a group shot. From left are Sandy Bradshaw, Bea Davis, Lynne Keener, Marjorie Raby and Bob Roney.

“Footwork wasn’t my problem as much as my eyes,” says Raby, a retired schoolteacher. “I have astigmatism really bad. My biggest problem was keeping my eye on the ball – always looking where I wanted it to go instead of where it was.” Raby, Bradshaw and Davis all got into “Never-Ever” years ago, but Raby and Bradshaw are going through the program again, mostly for the fellowship, and Davis is helping to teach Sandy Bradshaw gets ready to hit the tennis ball. the 30 novices. “It’s good to have seniors

Taking a stand After community forum, FBA opposes hotel tax By Sherri Gardner Howell Nobody said, “Oops,” and perhaps it will be a case of “all’s well that ends well.” While the second reading vote on the proposed hotel-motel tax for Farragut is yet to come, the Farragut Business Alliance voted to oppose the proposed 3 percent tax in a closed executive session Thursday, following a lively community forum on the subject. The FBA has submitted its recommendation to the town of Farragut in a letter in which they also offer to serve as a facilitating body for “continued dialogue” with the hotels and business community. Town administrator David Smoak says Mayor Ralph McGill, who sits on the FBA board but recused himself from the vote, will probably move to table the second reading at Thursday’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting. Still, after two to three years of discussion, there should be

sion on a new tax on … hotels and motels. And a bit of blame on the businesses’ side, too, for not keeping up with a topic that has been discussed for such a long time. As one forum participant, who asked to remain anonymous, said after the meeting, “How hard could it have been to spread the word that the vote was imminent? There are only seven hotels in Farragut.” Reaction spread fast after the vote for the tax passed on first reading by a vote of 4 to 1 during the April 25 BOMA meeting. The Farragut Business Alliance, which had taken no position on the proposal previously, quickly put together the community forum and called an executive session to follow. The Farragut hotel businesses attending the forum said the tax would not only hurt their businesses, but also local shops. Greg Adkins with the Tennessee Hospitality Association said

teaching seniors because they understand,” says Keener. The “Never-Ever” program was created in 1990 by Jack Murphy, now deceased, and Clare Maisel, now living out of state. “One of the things that Clare and Jack built into the program was that people who’ve gone through it are supposed to come back and help the next bunch,” says Roney. “And that also gets them involved in playing, and we try to encourage them to keep on playing.” “The first year I was in it, which was ’98, Clare Maisel pushed me to More on A-3

the timing for an additional tax was terrible. “This is a game-changer for future investments in the community and could impede future growth,” said Adkins. “The lodging industry still hasn’t recovered from the recession. Occupancy rates have risen, but many of our hotels are just now beginning to break even or starting to make a little money again.” Nationally, Adkins said that studies show a negative impact when new taxes are added to hotels. “With a 2 percent increase in taxes, we see at 2.4 percent reduction in occupancy,” he said. The intention was for the money to be used to promote Farragut and increase tourism, Smoak said. “We have been looking for three years for ways to promote our town, and, with our revenue structure the way it is, it is a slow process to find new money to put toward that. We have to have cash on hand to pay for any programs we propose or improvements we want to make to existing facilities,” he said. Amit Patel with Comfort Suites said he would have to lower his rates to compete if a new tax was added. “We have to compete with hotels just one More on A-3

FARRAGUT Shopper news • MAY 20, 2013 • A-3

Splashing toward summer It is pint-size nature: Have water, will splash. The families who were taking advantage of a beautiful May afternoon at Farragut’s McFee Park had soggy but happy children to load back into the car, as the park’s Splash Pad was a lure too great to fight. Some came prepared with bathing suits. Others just jumped to the center of the pad in shorts, jeans and T-shirts The Splash Pad, which opened in 2011, turned on the jets for the season on April 26 and is seeing a steady increase in visitors as the weather gets warmer. Hours are 10 a.m. to 8 p.m. daily. New this year is a shade structure adjacent to the pad. McFee Park, one of the crown jewels of the Farragut parks, is a 26-acre, multi-use facility that also features two athletic fields,

Sherri Gardner Howell FARRAGUT FACES paved and lighted walking trails, two picnic pavilions and McFee Fort playground. The park, which opened in 2008, is green both aesthetically and environmentally, with solar panels, permeable pavers, LED lighting, rain gardens and natural lighting in the restrooms. The McFee Road Greenway parallels McFee Road and is a starting place for many area bicycle rides. The park is on land that was once part of the 131acre Seal family dairy farm.

Pierson Russell, 19 months, wasn’t quite sure he wanted to get wet at the Splash Pad when his mom, Arrington Russell, brought him for his first visit this year.

become a team captain,” says Davis, a retired schoolteacher. “Not even knowing how to score very well, I formed a team, and we started playing in the clubs. And then the next year, in 1999, I started a Wednesday league, and it’s still going after all these years.” “The friendships that I’ve made are the most important thing,” says Raby, “When I retired – I taught in Fountain City, and I lived out here, so all my social life was in Fountain City. I’ve made new friends.” There are also health benefits. Davis says she’s lost 40 pounds thanks to the program. “I think it’s probably lowered my blood pressure

a little bit,” says Raby. “I feel better when I’m out playing. You sleep better after you exercise.” Bradshaw says she’s enjoyed “the friendships and camaraderie” – and the good health, to an extent. “Except for when I shattered my wrist on the tennis court,” she says referring to a mishap about nine years ago. It hasn’t slowed her down; she stays busy with volunteer work at the Strang Center and Farragut Town Hall. Playing tennis wasn’t an option when they were younger, the five seniors say. Even though they grew up all over the map – Davis and Keener in different towns in Connecticut,

Bradshaw in Kansas City, Mo., Raby in Nashville and Roney in Union City in West Tennessee – one thing they had in common was that none of their schools offered it in PE classes. They all came to tennis after retirement, and they say there’s no excuse for any senior to shy away. Davis has stuck with it despite breast cancer, a shattered ankle and double hernia surgery. Roney has arthritis and wears braces on his hands and knees when he plays. “A lot of people will call me,” says Keener, “and they’ll say, ‘I don’t know if I can play. I’ve got bad knees.’ I say, ‘You should come. It’s like an orthopedic convention out there – braces everywhere. You will not be out of place, believe me.’”

Taking a stand exit down that do not have the tax,” he said. “It takes away one of our competitive edges.” Patel also said he believed it was unfair to target a single industry with a tax. Jill Thompson, executive director of the Greater Knoxville Hospitality Association, said Farragut’s soon-to-be eight hotels, with the opening of Fairfield Inn, are in a small pocket that allows the limited service hotels to be competitive with full service hotels nearby. “The hotels in Farragut are in a small pocket of hotels along I-75 that only have the county’s 14.25 percent tax,” she said. “Mainly because of Knoxville’s pre-

From page A-1 vious finger-annexations, it is somewhat of a unique position for them and for some of the hotels just an exit down the road on North Peters. Visitors are savvy shoppers. They check rates.” Smoak said the community forum brought a lot of information to the forefront. “We just had not had a lot of feedback from any of the businesses in town, although we have talked about this option quite a bit at various times,” said Smoak. “When you don’t receive any negative feedback, you just kind of move forward. The mayor has now been able to hear all those options and has said he will ask the board to table the motion.”

Shelving the tax won’t negatively impact the 2014 budget for promoting tourism, Smoak said. “We suggest doubling what we spent this year to $115,000, which will be used to begin the process of seeing where our tourism efforts need to be and what the most efficient way to promote the town is. “There is a level of marketing we haven’t even looked at yet, and we want to continue to promote businesses here as much as possible. It will be most prudent to get a game plan together to determine if the board of aldermen wants to move forward and where they want the funds to come from.”

government Briggs and Mannis and more Knox County Commissioner Richard Briggs, a medical doctor, will have a fundraiser Thursday, May 23, at the Sequoyah Hills home of two other doctors, Penny Lynch and Kimbro Maguire. Briggs is challenging state Sen. Stacey Campfield, and the Republican primary is still a year away in August 2014. It promises to be a high profile race. State Rep. Steve Hall will be active for Campfield. ■ The resignation of Eddie Mannis as deputy mayor to Mayor Rogero after only 18 months has raised many eyebrows as to why his tenure was so brief. Some have speculated that Mannis, owner of Prestige Cleaners, did not adjust well to the slower pace of decision-making at city hall with lengthy consultations and committees slowing down decisions as opposed to quick action at his successful business. Others speculated that Prestige Cleaners needed Mannis back full-time. Whatever the real reasons may be, Mannis’s tenure was so short that his time may not be remembered for long. Additionally, Mannis may have experienced enough of governmental ways to abandon running for mayor in 2019 when Rogero is term-limited from seeking a third term. However, there will be no lack of mayoral contenders then, including at least two current members of city council. Mannis’s former home on Kingston Pike has now sold and he lives downtown. Many people did not feel Mannis was entirely happy with the pace of city government. ■ Christy Branscom, who is moving into Mannis’ office in a few weeks, is only $400 short of what Mannis makes in salary. Mannis is at $146,944 while Branscom is at $146,508. She will get the 2.5 percent pay raise on July 1, but city spokesperson Jesse Mayshark did not know if her salary will also bump to the Mannis level as well. The 2.5 percent will give her another $3,650 a year which will move her past $150,000. Mayor Rogero is set at $130,000 and cannot be changed except by council passing a separate ordi-

nance which would take effect when the mayor elected in 2015 takes office that December. At least five city employees now make more than Rogero, and the county mayor makes more than the city mayor. Don’t be surprised if Rogero leaves Branscom’s current job vacant and saves the city $154,000. With Branscom now deputy mayor, her soon-to-beformer position becomes much less important to be filled. ■ Pam Reeves appears to be on a glide path to a lifetime federal judgeship following Judge Tom Phillips who is resigning this summer. Both Sens. Alexander and Corker seem comfortable with her, and the state Democratic establishment led by U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper is for her. The White House has done extensive vetting before announcing the replacement so it can go to the U.S. Senate, where confirmations for federal district judges in the best of circumstances take at least 100 days from the day the paperwork goes to the Senate Judiciary Committee to a vote on the Senate floor. If that timetable holds, Reeves could be confirmed by early November. However, there are nominees for district judgeships in Georgia and Arizona where the wait has exceeded 500 days, according to the Wall Street Journal. That is not expected to be the case here. Reeves will likely be unable to hear any cases involving the city of Knoxville as her husband, Charles Swanson, is the city law director who would represent the city. The other federal judge, Thomas Varlan, who would be assigned many of those cases, is a former Knoxville city law director. Reeves will be the first woman to serve as a federal judge in the eastern district and is also highly popular and respected in the area.

That’s a long way from last year when folks battled over McIntyre’s request for $35 million in new dollars which would have required a tax increase. McIntyre has not abandoned his goals, but he has become more realistic about the political climate of Knox County. This year’s budget calls for a increase of $13.39 million, which Mayor Tim Burchett says can be funded within available tax revenues.

Byrne said 5,477 animal control calls came in during 2010. Examples include a young boy bitten by a neighbor’s dog, requiring five stitches to his hand. A woman required 50 stitches to her mouth after being attacked by her friend’s dog. Also common are animal-on-animal attacks. Animal Control includes livestock care, animal cruelty and neglect, owner education and rabies control. Byrne noticed an injured bird outside the restaurant before the meeting. “She picked it up and put it in her

Farragut revamps flood plain ordinance Forget preparations for a 100-year flood. Farragut is basing its latest flood policies on a 500-year flood. Some residents and business owners may have thought they were seeing a 500-year flood Feb. 28, 2011, when a frog-strangler of a rainstorm caused flooding in places that usually stayed dry. An amendment to the current zoning ordinance dealing with flood damage prevention came about due to a new flood study of Turkey Creek and North Fork Turkey Creek. The Farragut Municipal Planning Commission tweaked the ordinance to comply with the National Flood Insurance Program at its May 16 meeting. NFIP works closely with private insurance companies to offer insurance if a community joins the NFIP and agrees to enforce sound

We have to participate.” As the town has developed so have flood plain issues. Staff recommended going from the current 3 feet to 4 feet above the base line flood stage for future development. In Tennessee flooding is the most costly natural disaster and the most preventable, Hawk noted. “We’re seeing more

large amounts of rain in a short time,” she said. “You have to look at the cost of elevating structures versus the cost of years of paying for flood insurance and flood damage.” Assistant town administrator Gary Palmer brought the commission up to speed on the latest talks with Kay Wellons and her family regarding development of their land on Campbell Station Road north of Interstate 40/75. Currently zoned R-2, under the town’s newly adopted Comprehensive Land Use Plan it would be categorized as OS-Cluster Residential. “We looked at the implication of change to the surrounding property and the town,” said Palmer, adding he considered what was best for the town, the owners and surrounding properties. Topography is an issue,

along with sensitive environmental issues. A number of sinkholes help manage runoff. “The best use is medium to low residential on the front and recreation in the back,” he told commissioners. Palmer said there are a number of vacant commercial properties in town that need to be redeveloped before adding new ones. Wellons said they want to preserve some of the natural area, but “we still have a dream of some commercial use on the property. I can imagine a quaint little ice cream parlor or a shoe store for me.” Her husband, David, manager of the Cracker Barrel, envisions travelers from nearby motels out for a stroll stopping in some small shops. Some commissioners would like to see something worked out to make her dream come true, perhaps

with apartments behind a small cluster of shops and the remainder of the property left in its natural state. While Wellons said they’re in no hurry, they would like to proceed to find a developer. Palmer said he and Wellons would discuss options presented at the meeting

and come back next month with an update. Commissioners approved a site plan for Thornton Professional Building at 10904 Kingston Pike at the corner of Thornton Drive and a renewal of concept plans for Bridgemore subdivision on McFee Road.

The Beebes are back By Cindy Taylor Last June, a family of seven sold their belongings to spend at least two years as missionaries in Ghana. They are back for a sixweek furlough to tell their story at various churches and other ministries. Reid and Robin Beebe and their five boys moved to Ghana with the intention of sharing the gospel while ministering to the needs of the Ghanaian people. “The whole reason we have come home at this time is to witness Mathiang graduate from college,” said Robin. “When I met this young man is when my world grew. This is when I began to understand that the world I was living in wasn’t the world many others were living in.” Mathiang Gutnyin was one of the 3,800 Lost Boys of Sudan who were given refuge in the U.S. in 2001 after the second Sudanese Civil War displaced and orphaned them. In Sudan he had one pencil and one composition book for an entire year of school. While in a refugee camp he survived on one cup of sugar, five kilos of corn and a cup of oil every two weeks for 13 years. Mathiang became a son in the hearts of the Beebes in 2001. He was the family’s introduction to Africa and the beginning of a ministry that is now winding its way across more than one country. A year of living in Ghana has brought positive change to the lives of many of the people the Beebes have encountered, includ-

Hayward, who holds a joint faculty position with Oak Ridge National Laboratory, was selected for his research to improve the resolution and cost of instrumentation for neutron imaging. He will receive $750,000 over five years starting in July. ■ Joel Reeves, who has served as interim assistant vice chancellor for information technology and chief information officer since 2011, has been named permanently to the position, effective immediately.

ing food and clean water. But the Beebes say they have been changed as well. “The Christians in Ghana are so active and alive in their worship,” said Reid. “So much of how we lived life here in the U.S. seems trivial now. People in Ghana are trusting God and there is nothing else to fall back on.” Many churches across Knoxville have members who are actively supporting the Beebes. One person had little to give but felt compelled to help. He recently passed

away but his wife continued to support the ministry. The Beebes will be speaking at many of those churches as well as at Water Angels Ministry before heading back for a second year in Ghana. “Many people get the impression that our family is special because of where we live,” said Reid. “We are just people doing what God has called us to do.” For more info or to support the Beebes and their ministry in Ghana, visit their blog beebebits.blogspot.com.

Celebration of life: Stokely Center Stokely Center is going, going … Nobody asked me to do the official eulogy. Considering the shortage of institutional memory, perhaps nobody realized I was there more than anybody not on the university payroll. I didn’t see it all but I was at courtside, in the offices and dressing room almost every day during the Ray Mears era and some before and after – a thousand practices, hundreds of games, a parade of special players, friends and foes, many who truly earned their historical niche. When the building was the UT Armory Fieldhouse and the godfathers wanted to name it for Robert R. Neyland, the General politely said thanks but no thanks. Being an engineer, he did not approve of the design or maybe he knew there would be a better offer. I recall the first game, 7271 over Wyoming, Dec. 2, 1958. I also remember 1962 and the last game of coach

John Sines’ 4-19 season. Attorney G. Edwin Friar was the only person seated in the big bleacher section behind the south goal. Attendance was 515. I suggested listing fans as survivors in the newspaper story. Sports editor Tom Siler vetoed that bright idea. Mears made a magical difference. He raised the bar, in winning and entertainment. Tennessee basketball was forever changed. William B. Stokely’s gift of $500,000 inspired arena expansion and provided the name. So many memories, so many smiles … A photo of Kentucky coach Adolph Rupp was once the dart board in Mears’ private dressing room.

There was a little wooden stepstool so associate coach Stu Aberdeen could see in the mirror to shave. Orange chairs were in perfect lines in the players’ meeting room. The captain had a white chair. Everything was in its appointed place in Big Orange Country. A.W. Davis was the Rutledge Rifle. Howard Bayne was chairman of the boards. Danny Schultz was the great shooter before Jimmy England. Bill Justus was the classic competitor. Ron Widby refused to lose. He once put 50 on LSU. Rodney Woods was a coach on the floor. Mike Edwards could hit from outer spaces. Memories … Tom Boerwinkle was a sensational success story, in part because of Stu’s coaching broom. How about the Volunteer Classic when Temple held the ball and Tennessee won, 11-6? The Orange Tie Club was faithful even in foul weather. Ernie Grunfeld and

Strong enough to bend The descendants of those who oppressed you Shall come bending low to you, and all who despised you shall bow down at your feet; they shall call you the City of the Lord, the Zion of the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 60: 14 NRSV) There’s a tree out in the backyard, That never has been broken by the wind. And the reason it’s still standin’ It was strong enough to bend. (recorded by Tanya Tucker, 1988) Sometimes the truth comes at me from the most unexpected places. I have to admit that country music is not my native tongue, but occasionally I am struck by the wisdom im-

parted through its homespun words. I remember when I spent a few days in the hospital while I was in college, and my roommate loved to cry along with her country tunes. I thought

that she was torturing herself, but in actuality, it seemed to make her feel better. In fact, I am irreverent enough about country music to laugh at the old joke: What happens if you play a country song backwards? The guy gets his wife back, his car back and his house back! On a recent dark and rainy night, I heard Tanya Tuck-

Bernard King made the mid-1970s spectacular. Aberdeen did it, luring the allAmericans from New York City. Tenacity? Yes. Cheat? I don’t think so. Unforgettable was the night David Moss marched out as best he could, on his artificial leg, to say goodbye – March 8, 1977. He died three years later. Good times … Globetrotter warm-ups, “Sweet Georgia Brown,” John Pascual wrestling the bear, Roger Peltz juggling three balls while riding a unicycle, happy evenings heckling coaches Dale Brown and Joe B. Hall. “Sit down, Joe, sit down.” Kentucky defeated the Vols five times at Stokely. Tennessee wins included the one over Rupp’s Runts that spoiled a 23-0 season and a 76-57 romp in the championship race of ’67 and the terrific 103-98 victory in ’75 when nobody mentioned that Mears preferred a deliberate pace.

er’s song “Strong Enough to Bend,” and began to consider the wisdom in country music. I also began to think about what strength looks like. We all know that there are people in this world who are stubborn. I am one of them. A friend said to me recently, “Maybe determined would be a better description of you.” I appreciated her effort to be kind, and I would like to think she is right, but I am not at all sure. When I was a child, we had a Lombardy poplar in the back yard. It was tall and slender and pliable, and in a fierce wind, it would bow nearly to the ground, but it would not break. I also have seen large, sturdy oaks felled by the wind, because they could not bend.

Once upon a time, Tennessee defeated Chattanooga and ETSU in the same evening. Gary Carter picked off an inbounds pass and prevented a humbling loss to American U. Tony White scored 51 on Valentine’s Day 1987. Dale Ellis hit some very long jumpers. Remember the experimental game with 12-feet goals? Don DeVoe made his mark in Stokely. Pat Summitt won more games. Her teams took many giant steps toward national championships. Elvis and others appeared in Stokely concerts. John Tate lost the biggest fight of his boxing life. Louisville defeated Kentucky in a tournament matchup they called the dream game. Pistol Pete Maravich endured frustration in the persona of guard Billy Hann. Charles Barkley, round mound of rebounds, got a pizza delivery he didn’t expect. Bobby Knight waved his arm too frantically and lost his watch. Only the building is going. Memories remain. Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is westwest6@netzero.com.

So what can we learn from trees and country music? That it is important to be strong enough to bend. But there is more. My favorite movie of all time is “A Man for All Seasons,” the story of Sir Thomas More, who was willing to go to his death rather than compromise his principles. He knew who he was, and where he began and ended, and how far he could bend. He was beheaded by the decree of King Henry VIII on a charge of treason because he would not condone the divorce and remarriage of the king. It is important to be strong enough to bend. It is equally important to be strong enough to refuse to bend when circumstances call for standing tall.

News from SOS While still in a pilot phase, Knox County has moved aggressively from the founding of the first community school at Pond Gap Elementary to the launch of three more community schools last fall. More will open this fall. Government officials, business leaders, and social service agencies are publicly on board with the community school concept which, broadly defined, is the gradual conversion of traditional schools to multiple-use community centers that support children, families and neighborhoods. Community engagement is critical to their success. Taxpayers who have invested in school construction could have access to school buildings as meeting places and benefit from expanded services and training opportunities. City Mayor Madeline Rogero in a recent television interview said, “We do community development and we tend to focus on the bricks and mortar, the affordable housing, energy efficiency and such. In reality, community development is also about strengthening the social fabric, the socioeconomic issues related to families and the children.” Rogero has included $100,000 in the proposed city budget for community schools. A new five-year school plan is being written and community schools are expected to be a major component.

Digging a little deeper Paideia students learn with community involvement By Ashley Baker Every month, 30 students at Paideia Academy put down their books, leave their classroom and step outside to serve the Knoxville community. Paideia Academy is a private Christian school located on Yarnell Road. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission is to offer students â&#x20AC;&#x153;a classical curriculum, a Christ-centered worldview and a university schedule.â&#x20AC;? Open since the fall of 2004, Paideia Academy now has 134 students enrolled in kindergarten through 10th grade. Headmaster at Paideia is James Cowart. Service to the community is a big part of the schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s mission. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We do service projects because we want to be a visible presence in the community, and we want to show Christâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s love to our neighbors,â&#x20AC;? said Mark Baker, dean of Apostlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hall and teaching fellow in humanities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At Paideia, we treasure

the gospel that Christ laid down His life for us, so we, in turn, want to lay down our lives for others.â&#x20AC;? The upper school at Paideia is known as the School of Rhetoric and is comprised of grades seven and above, said Baker. Within the School of Rhetoric are two halls: Apostlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hall and Nicene Hall. Each hall goes off campus once a month for service. Projects this year have included local elementary schools, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sports ministries, area food banks and working on farms. In April, Apostlesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Hall students helped the Knoxville Botanical Garden and Arboretum. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Serving at the botanical gardens was a good experience,â&#x20AC;? said 8th grade student Samuel Sadler. The upper school students were joined for this project by the 6th graders. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was nice to get our hands dirty and help out,â&#x20AC;? said Kelby Cox. At the gardens, Paid-

eia teachers and students cleared a field to prepare it for planting. They weeded the planting ground and sifted through compost piles to collect worms. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want to educate our students in how to serve in this capacity,â&#x20AC;? said Baker. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Planting food is a strong element of community service. The Knoxville Botanical Garden donates its produce to KARM, a local food bank that feeds the hungry in our city.â&#x20AC;? Wendy Prothro Howard, botanical garden program coordinator, said there is always excitement when students come to help out. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My favorite part of working with children in the garden is being able to enjoy their excitement about learning, gardening and being one with nature.â&#x20AC;? The garden is staffed by the University of Tennessee Human Dimensions Research Lab and funded under a grant from the state Department of Health Project Diabetes. The Paideia students worked in the ECO Garden. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The goal of the ECO Garden is to share the many benefits of gardening with children in order for them to make informed choices about eating and physical activities,â&#x20AC;? said Howard. Learning both the joy of service and the benefit of gardening, Paideia students enjoyed two and a half hours in their outdoor classroom. â&#x20AC;&#x153;My friend and I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t stop smiling as we hacked at one immense weed,â&#x20AC;? said 6th grade student Sarah Badgett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;By the time we had to go, the whole group had transformed a considerable amount of weeds and other hazardous materials into a clean, convenient area.â&#x20AC;? As Paideia students loaded up to leave, the garden was ready for planting. The field had been completely cleared. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It was really fun, spiritually and physically,â&#x20AC;? said 6th grader Allie Seaman.

Coffee Break with

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I would like to be able to stop dwelling on the details and learn to let things roll off my shoulders more.

What is your passion? Ice skating.

With whom, living or dead, would you most like to have a long lunch? My faith is very important to me, so this is an easy question: Jesus!

Other than your parents, who has had the biggest influence on your life and why?

Nadia Kogeler

Nadia Kogeler stumbled onto a blessing six years ago and now wants to make sure others take a more direct route. Nadia, general manager at Cool Sports and Icearium, grew up ice skating in Parma, Ohio, where she skated competitively in synchronized ice skating. When husband Alex’s job as an airline pilot offered the newlywed couple the choice of three places to locate, they chose Knoxville. And that was before she stumbled on the Icearium. “We were looking for a house shortly after we moved here, and Alex saw the sign for Cool Sports,” says Nadia. “We pulled in immediately so I could check it out. It has been such a great blessing for us.” Her passion for ice skating has guided her life more than once. While in school at Ohio University, Nadia ran the OU recreational program that included ice skating and hockey as a big component. “We had an ice skating rink and recreational program that was run by the university but open to the community,” Nadia says. “I ran the ice skating program and then began to get more into the facility side. When I started my master’s program, I decided to switch from community health to recreation management.” The Icearium was approaching 4 years old when Nadia joined the staff as an assistant. “The Icearium is 10 years old, and I have been here six years,” she says. “I came just after the soccer side was built.” This is her third year as general manager and increasing visibility for the facility is a high priority for her. She is aggressive with her marketing and branding and has jumped into community service and involvement. “We have so much to offer and so many programs that are growing by leaps and bounds,” she says. “The growth we have seen in hockey and youth soccer has been exponential. Olympic years are always good, and we have seen fairly good retention from that year. Even through the recession, people have really stayed committed to keeping their children in the programs.” The cool thing about Cool Sports, says Nadia, is the staff. “Everyone who works here has a connection to what they do,” she says. “You don’t just have someone ‘running a program.’ You have someone who has grown up with the sport or activity and is really invested in the program. Our staff is excellent and committed to what we are doing.”

My husband, Alex. He really is my best friend and partner in life. We laugh, argue and raise our children together. I honestly couldn’t think of anyone better to live my life with.

I still can’t quite get the hang of … Being 100 percent organized. It seems like every step I take closer to that organization goal, there is something else to pull me back to chaos. I guess that is what we call “Life.”

What is the best present you ever received in a box? My engagement ring. I wear it every day.

What is the best advice your mother ever gave you? After a hard experience or situation, pick yourself back up and keep moving.

What is your social media of choice? Sometime around the first weeks of June, the Kogeler family will increase. Son Calvin is 19 months old, and Nadia is due June 8 with a second son. She says she and Alex are so happy to be raising their family in Knoxville. “It is very difficult to go from some place you have lived all your life to somewhere brand new, but my husband and I have really built a community here,” she says. “We love it.” Sit and have a Coffee Break as you get to know Nadia Kogeler:

Facebook

What is the worst job you have ever had? I have really liked most of the jobs I have had, but there have been certain aspects of jobs that I dislike. For example, have you ever cleaned a fryer?

What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon and why? “Tom & Jerry.” It was the only one I would watch.

What irritates you?

What are you guilty of?

There are a lot of things that irritate me, but the biggest one is people who are not honest.

Couponing!

What is your favorite material possession? My Car. It is a Volkswagen GTI.

What are you reading currently? The Bible and “America’s Cheapest Family.”

What was your most embarrassing moment? “I really don’t embarrass easily.”

What are the top three things on your bucket list? I would like to live in another country for a little while. Second is to learn to play the banjo. And I would like to visit the Middle East.

What is one word others often use to describe you and why? I think maybe it would be “blunt.” I don’t like to beat around the bush. There is no time for that.

What’s one place in Farragut everyone should visit? Cool Sports: Home of the Icearium. Of course I am going to say that, but it isn’t just because I spend most of my days there, but because we really do offer great programs and have an honestly amazing staff.

What is your greatest fear? That the things in scary movies might be real. I saw “Poltergeist” as a child, and I do not like monsters. I don’t watch scary movies.

If you could do one impulsive thing, what would it be? Pierce my nose. – Sherri Gardner Howell It can be your neighbor, club leader, bridge partner, boss, father, teacher – anyone you think would be interesting to Farragut Shopper-News readers.

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers

Knoxville Zoo fosters learning By Wendy Smith As the Knoxville Zoo’s outreach and outdoor science coordinator, Steve McGaffin has carted furry, scaly and feathery friends all over East Tennessee in the Zoomobile. But for the past two years, McGaffin has been attracting another sort of friend – the six-legged kind. Last year, the zoo was awarded a grant from Dow Chemical for the installation of pollination gardens at Green, West View, Beaumont and Dogwood elementary schools. This year, a grant from the East Tennessee Foundation funded a fifth garden at Sarah Moore Greene Elementary School. The Pollinator Garden Project allows students to see an entire ecosystem within a 250-square-foot area, McGaffin says. Native flowering plants, like bee balm, blackeyed susans and purple coneflowers attract herbivores, omnivores and parasites, and birds come to feast on the crawling and buzzing insects. All of those critters do valuable work. The bees, flies and beetles will help pollinate Sarah Moore Greene Elementary’s Jeffersonian Gardens, three raised beds that were recently planted with peas, Thomas Jefferson’s favorite food. Assistant principal Tanna Nicely, who planted raised beds at Dogwood Elementary before coming to Sarah Moore Greene last year, spearheaded the project. The heirloom garden is one of the reasons five Sarah Moore Greene students were chosen to travel to Washington, D.C., in April to help plant Michelle Obama’s kitchen garden. The students will return to the White House at the end of May. The pollinator garden will also provide opportunities for students to become citizen scientists. For example, students might collect data on the lifecycle of butterfly weed, says McGaffin. After documenting when the plant emerges, forms leaves, flowers, produces seeds and dries up, students can submit the information to the National Phrenology Network, which will use the data to study climate change. “By studying these changes, students understand what’s happening with the climate.” An additional benefit of studying a garden is simply being outside. Studies have shown that getting kids outdoors helps them focus better in the classroom, he says. Plus, it’s good, messy fun. Last spring, after they had been kept indoors for several days due to a

downtown mulch fire, students were in the process of planting flowers in a pollinator garden when the teacher announced it was time for recess. About half of them elected to keep working in the garden, McGaffin says. “They don’t consider this work,” laughs Nicely. Education is what the Knoxville Zoo is all about, says the zoo’s public relations director, Tina Rolen. “It’s disguised as fun, but the goal is to help students connect with the animals so they will help with conservation and understand their part in saving some of these creatures.” One of the biggest ways the zoo helps students is through the Zoofund for Kids. The fund allows students to visit the zoo for half-price on field trips, and Title I-eligible students visit for free. In 2012, the Knoxville Zoo offered reduced or free admission to more

‘And your little dog, too!’ ‘Toto’ performs in Knoxville after Broadway career In CAK’s recent “Wizard of Oz” production, the role of Toto was played by a dog named Princess, who performed in the national tour of “The Wizard of Oz” in 2008. Princess is a rescue dog of Bill Berloni, professional animal handler for Broadway, off-Broadway, national tours, regional theaters, special events, the New York City Ballet, motion pictures, television and commercials. When animals’ careers are over, the animals usually return to Bill’s Connecticut farm, but this was not the case for Princess.

CAK students Clay McCammon, Cassidy Belk, Aaron Waldrupe, Michael Jarvis and Bennett Miller portray the Scarecrow, Dorothy, the Wizard of Oz, the Tinman and the Cowardly Lion respectively. Belk holds Toto, played by Princess, a dog with a long professional performance history.

When Princess was ready to retire at the end of 2009, Diana Warner was asked if she would like to consider applying to be Princess’s mother due to the fact that their special bond had become more than obvious. Since Princess needs to be the only dog in the home, the loving staff of Bill Berloni wanted to make sure Princess had a special home with a family that could take her everywhere and diligently administer her medicine three times a day; medicine that keeps her from having dramatic hallucinations caused by a slow-growing brain tumor.

Calling all alumni!

Since June of 2009, Princess and Diana have traveled everywhere together. Princess happily lives full time in her home in the heart of New York City, and makes the extremely long daily commute to work with her mom at the Diana Warner flagship store, a mere four doors down.

CAK alumni, we want to reconnect with you! Please visit www.cakwarriors.com/ alumniupdate to let us know what you’ve been up to.

The High School Musical Theater Department presented “The Wizard of Oz” on the CAK Stage April 25-27. The performance marked the 24th musical production directed by CAK’s Musical Director Peggy Filyaw, who is also the director of the Middle School Singers, High School Concert Choir and High School Spirit of Praise Ensemble.

CAK’s newest 2nd grader By Sarah Warren, elementary school teacher At the end of the 2011-12 school year, David McFalls, CAK elementary school principal, asked me, “How are you fulfilling the mission and vision of CAK?” I began to wrestle with this question. I felt like what I was doing as an educator was more focused on the “what” and “why,” not the “how.” I began to question. God calls us to help people, witness, love others, not be judgmental. So, what would that look like at CAK? How do I teach students to be content with what God has provided? How do I teach them to just “be” where God has called them? How do I teach them to rely on God? How do I teach them not to worry? Frederick Buechner said, “The place where God calls you is the place where your deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet.” I know that God has called me here to CAK, so

how do my deep gladness and the world’s deep hunger meet? For me, the answer is HABIT. HABIT (Human Animal Bonds in Tennessee) is a community group of volunteers working together to explore the circumstances and consequences of the human-animal bonds. HABIT is comprised of representatives from the UT College of Veterinary Medicine, volunteers from the community and private veterinary practitioners. I started thinking of students at CAK who have struggled spiritually, emotionally, socially and academically. I thought of students who have a love of animals, as I do. How could I meet their needs through HABIT? Meet Oliver, the 19th member of our classroom. Weekly, students anticipate Oliver’s arrival. They each spend several minutes reading to him. Through this exercise, they are able to practice

HABIT dog Oliver meets his classmates: (front) Addison Rittenhouse, Zoie Bourgoyne, Emery Benfield, Sarah Engle, Jenneh Day, Anna Lynn Harms, Amelia Frazier, Abigail Barnes, Paul Clute; (back) teacher Sarah Warren, Tessa Krokowski, Dario Love, Walker Beavers, Thomas Simpson, Ethan Harpending, Samuel Brophy, Ian Johnson, Adam Howard, Kaylin Ritchie. reading without the pressure of reading in front of others, which helps improve fluency. Oliver does not judge when a mistake is made; he just listens. Students are able to spend time loving on him

and petting him, which is very therapeutic and acts as a stress reliever. John 15:5 says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. Whoever abides in me and I in him, he is that bears

much fruit, for apart from me you can do nothing.” What better way to be the branches than by investing in our children and community? Let’s begin to bear fruit together!

Congratulations to CAK’s Class of 2013!

Shangri-La accepting volunteers If you know someone 10 or older who would like something fun and helpful to do this summer, they may want to volunteer at the ShangriLa Therapeutic Academy of Riding in Lenoir City.

The facility is located just over the Loudon County line from Farragut on Highway 11. Since 1987, STAR has been the “go to” place for everyone from 4-year-olds to senior citizens to receive therapeutic horseback riding lessons. The lessons help with everything from physical and mental disabilities to neurological problems. Depending on the age of the volunteer, he or she will spend about 1 1/2 hours a week for eight weeks preparing tack and supplies for sessions, assisting the rider

with their horse or even guiding the horse during a session with a rider. Volunteers under age 13 are not directly involved with the horses. “Our riders receive therapeutic benefits in a fun atmosphere,” said volunteer coordinator Melissa Suadi. “It is not a sterile atmosphere like a doctor’s office, but they are still receiving the same benefits as regular therapy while building a relationship with their horse.” Both the volunteer and the rider benefit by working as a team throughout the session “so there is consistency,” said Suadi. Training for lesson volunteers (ages 13 and up) will be held 1:30-5:30 p.m. Saturday, June 1, and junior volunteer training (ages 10-12) will be held 5-7 p.m. Monday, June 3. No experience with horses is necessary to volunteer. Info: Melissa, 9884711 or www.rideatstar. org.

Fourth grader Bailey Keen learned “Amazing Grace” on the guitar just two days before performing it for her audition during the school’s talent show tryouts.

Fourth graders Turner Hutchinson and Clara Castleberry performed “The Cup Song” with plastic cups after Turner saw it in the film “Pitch Perfect” and Clara learned it from her cousin.

Fourth grader Alexis Kochenderfer performed a scene from a silent movie for her talent show audition. Her grandmother came up with the idea and made Alexis’ costume.

Seasons third restaurant to open June 3 Seven years after the first Seasons Café opened in Renaissance Farragut, Deron Little will add another of his signature restaurants to the community. Seasons Café at 11605 Parkside Drive in Turkey Creek is set to open June 3. This restaurant will be the third Seasons for Little, who is owner and executive chef. When he opened his first in 2006, he already brought a wealth of restaurant experience to the table. Little began his career with the Red Lion Corporation and was chef with Wyndham, Stouffers, Omni and Marriott Hotels. After the sale of his restaurant in Greenville, S.C., Little came to Knoxville to be executive chef and food/beverage director at

Gettysvue Polo, Golf and Country Club. When the club was sold, Little went to Fox Den Golf and Country Club, where he stayed until opening Seasons in 2006. The second restaurant opened in Bearden in November. At the end of the day, all three restaurants will be the same, says Little, but this new Seasons is sparking some change. “We are going through an analysis, looking at the menu, at menu style, at the bar

menu and making sure we are doing the right thing everywhere,” says Little. “It is very intense but will be very exciting for all three restaurants.” For this third venture, Little has two partners, Mike Gibson and Michael Parisi. Gibson owns Gibson Hotels with 18 properties. Parisi works with Gibson’s management company and has a restaurant background. “They are the reasons I did the Turkey Creek restaurant and did it so quickly,” says Little. “They both really like the concept of Seasons and see the potential of it.” As to whether that potential means more Seasons down the road, Little laughs and says, “As my partner says, ‘We’ve got

This HABIT is a good thing By Anne Hart Ever wonder what happened to Little Brown Dog? You remember her from news accounts a few years ago. She was the adorable little puppy whose story of being intentionally dragged behind a moving vehicle until she was almost dead broke our hearts. The magicians at UT Veterinary Hospital who pose as doctors managed to save her and a great outpouring of love and support from the public paid most of her medical bills, and then … she got a job. It’s true. All healed now, the beloved Little Brown Dog found a way to “pay it forward” by becoming a HABIT volunteer. HABIT stands for Human Animal Bond In Tennessee, and Karen Armsey, program administrator of HABIT at the UT College of Veterinary Medicine, told West Knox Rotary members all about it at a recent meeting. She said HABIT is a nonprofit organization which uses medically and behaviorally approved animals who are more than a year old in animal assisted therapy and animal assisted activities.

Karen Armsey The dogs (and even some cats and rabbits) and their owners visit hospitals, nursing homes, adult day care programs, shelter workshops for the mentally disabled, rehabilitation centers, hospice centers and elementary and middle school classrooms, including those for special education students. Armsey said two of the most popular places to visit are Children’s Hospital and the Ben Atchley Veterans’ Home. The program’s 350 volunteer teams in 14 counties made more than 200,000 contacts last year, but more volunteers and their special animals are always needed. To learn more about volunteering, call 974-5633.

Mannis talks politics – and business – at Rotary meeting By Sherri Gardner Howell The main difference in how the wheels of business turn in government as compared to the private sector really has to do with pace, Eddie Mannis, deputy to Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero and chief operating officer for the city, told the Rotary Club of Farragut. Mannis, who will leave public service on June 1 to resume his previous position as president of Prestige Cleaners, a company he founded in 1985, has now seen business work from both sides. “I have certainly enjoyed and learned from my time with the city,” Mannis said. “I knew there were differences in the way a private company does business and the way a government does business, and my experiences have shown that to be true. I now have a better understanding of why.” Mannis, who will continue as an unpaid senior advisor to Mayor Rogero, said that in business, if you take a long time to make a decision, you are considered slow or possi-

bly bankrupt. “In government, you are considered thorough,” he said. “Governments do things more slowly, and there are reasons for that. Public participation, especially for this mayor, is important. Every citizen has a stake in the de-

cisions being made, and good government leaders take the stewardship of the citizens’ money very seriously.” The lessons weren’t always easy. “I had been in my position for two months when I started working on a way to try to get a low-cost regional airline to Knoxville,” Mannis said. “I feel strongly about its importance because I hear over and over from businesses that coming to Knoxville is less attractive because it costs so much to fly out. I started gathering key stakeholders in February of 2012. “Now, in May of 2013, there is a budget item to invest $170,000 into promoting efforts to get a low-fare airline to Knoxville, and we hope it passes City Council.” Another difference is that the city is part of a team that needs to work in concert, said Mannis. “With every idea, you must consider what the reaction will be from the county, from surrounding counties, from the schools and most of all, from the taxpayers.” One of the overlapping

business practices that Mannis said he brought with him to city government was the importance of customer service. “At Prestige, we work hard to give great customer service. When you look at a city government, that is what you want as well – to be able to give exemplary customer service. “We are rolling out a customer service initiative that I guess is my ‘swan song.’ When you break it down, government is a public service organization, so we need to be good at customer service.” When asked if his exit ends his time in politics or if he will consider running for public office, Mannis did not shut the door. “I will not rule that out,” he said. “Mayor Rogero has done and continues to do a great job. That is a conversation we will have after her second term.” Also at the meeting, the Rotary Club of Farragut presented a $1,500 scholarship to Patrick Doucette, a Farragut High School graduated Doucette senior. Patrick will attend VMI where he will play football.

News from Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation (KCDC)

Stroll down Juanita Cannon Street By Alvin Nance In August, one of our longe s tserving K C D C c om m i s sioners stepped d o w n from the board. I am very Nance grateful for Juanita Cannon’s service to KCDC. Her tenure on the board saw many positive changes for this city. Today (May 20), she is being honored by the city of Knoxville for her service. “Juanita Cannon Street,” a street in the soon-to-be revitalized Five Points neighborhood, will be unveiled at a ceremony in Paul Hogue Park. Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero and other city officials will present Cannon with a ceremonial street sign, and she is welcome to visit the real sign posted in the Five Points neighborhood at any time. The street runs behind Paul Hogue Park and connects Wilson and Selma avenues. During her 18-year tenure on the KCDC board, Cannon helped bring about many changes in Knoxville public housing and saw many neighborhoods restored. Five Points has been a focus of both KCDC and the city for the past several years. Cannon and her colleagues on the KCDC board approved plans

for a new senior housing complex, the Residences at Eastport, and recently, for family-style duplex housing to replace blighted properties. More than 180 old units in Walter P. Taylor Homes were demolished during this time to decrease the density of the neighborhood. Today, with the help of dedicated volunteers like Cannon, Five Points is a different place than it was five years ago; and in 10 years, we hope to see it reinvigorated in the same way as Mechanicsville. During her years on the board, Cannon also oversaw the successful HOPE VI project, which restored the Mechanicsville neighborhood that has been set up as a model project for the Department of Housing and Urban Development across the region. Cannon has a passion for improving public housing because of her personal experience. She grew up in Austin Homes, which she characterized as a close-knit community. In addition to her work at KCDC, Cannon was a Knox County school teacher for 40 years. We at KCDC have come to see her in the same way as her former students – as a guiding force, a mentor and leader. We’re proud to dedicate this street today in honor of Juanita Cannon’s excellent service to this community.

What’s in a name? MALCOLM’S CORNER | Malcolm Shell I have always been fascinated by street names and their origin. For the most part, developers often name streets after their families or after street names they have seen in other areas. Some use the name of the former owner if it has historical significance (i.e. Smithfield subdivision). One upscale builder told me his favorite TV program was “Murder, She Wrote.” The fictional setting was Cabot Cove. He said he liked the name so much he named his development Cabot Ridge. Well, we might say that’s one mystery solved. But the

real mystery was a street in my subdivision. All the streets in our neighborhood are named after famous golf courses. But one street, Crippled Mule Point, has no relation to the others. That aroused my curiosity. The answer was found in an unpublished manuscript written by the late Fox Den members Bob Fraim and Tom Foree, our first golf professional. It seems that when the developer, Chester Massey, was acquiring the property from 11 different owners, he thought he had enough land to build the course. But the golf course architect, Wil-

lard Byrd, discovered at the last moment that additional land was needed to complete the 12th hole. The property was owned by Spencer Smith, the former owner of the Smithfield subdivision property. Massey had purchased property from Smith before and didn’t foresee any problem in purchasing the additional property. He approached Smith in an unassuming way, but quickly found it wasn’t going to be easy. Smith was adamant about not selling any additional land and ended the conversation quite abruptly. Massey recalls that he

went down to what is now the 1st fairway and shot some quail. He dressed and took them to Smith, who thanked him but said he still was not going to sell. At that point, Massey told the architect to make the 12th hole a par 3. Massey had started publishing a Fox Den newsletter and was always looking for possible items for the publication. That led him to once again visit Spencer in hopes of finding a possible story that might be of interest to the new residents. Mrs. Smith answered the door and told him that Spencer was sick but that he could visit with him a few minutes. When he entered the bedroom, he assured Smith that he had not come to talk about purchasing any additional property. He told him that he simply was trying to find some good material to include in his newsletter. At that point, Smith rose up from his bed, threw his feet over the edge and sat up as Mrs. Smith started to spin a

tale that fascinated Massey. She said that when the Civil War was nearing an end, stragglers from both North and South would often pass by the property and ask to be fed. On one particular morning, three Confederate soldiers knocked on the door and asked if she could serve them breakfast. She did so and they sat down on the front porch to eat. While they were eating, seven or eight Union soldiers rode by and spotted the three Confederates. A gun battle ensued and Mrs. Smith grabbed what she could carry and ran out the back door. She eventually made her way through the woods to Campbell’s Station, where she spent the night with friends. The next day she returned home to find the three Confederate soldiers lying dead in the front yard. The house had also been looted. She immediately ran to the spring house to see if they had found her perishable

items. She discovered that all the milk and fresh meat were gone and the only thing left was an old crippled mule. Massey asked the Smiths if he could publish that story in his newsletter, and Spencer said, “Would you really publish that?” Massey assured him that he would and at that point Spencer said: “Son, if you will publish that, I’ll just give you the property.” At that point, Massey assured Smith that the road leading down to the spring would always be called Crippled Mule Point. Massey published the story in his newsletter. It was picked up by legendary former Knoxville News Sentinel sports editor Tom Siler. And that story was picked up by the wire services. So today the 12th hole is a beautiful par 4, just as it was intended to be, and the street that runs parallel to the hole on the east side is called Crippled Mule Point, just as Massey had promised.

NEWS FROM TEMPLE BAPTIST ACADEMY

Kindergarten graduation at Temple On May 13, Temple Baptist Academy hosted the 2013 kindergarten graduation program and ceremony. The program is a yearly highlight for students, teachers and parents. This year’s program featured students demonstrating their mastery of academic and Bible subjects, serenading the audience with their favorite songs, and displaying the diversity of their personalities. They truly were a “cast of characters” that not only stole the show, but also stole the hearts of those who watched. The students put on the play “Little Bo Peep,” which creatively incorporated characters from a variety of children’s stories, poems and rhymes, including Humpty Dumpty, Little Boy Blue, Jack and Jill, and Peter Peter Pumpkin-eater, among others. Kindergarten teacher Paulette

Temple Academy kindergartner Laynee Farris portrays Little Bo Peep in the kindergarten graduation play. Deeringer matched each role to the colorful personalities of the students.

After the play concluded, Dr. Clarence Sexton, pastor of Temple Baptist Church, spoke to the audience. He emphasized the opportunity that families and teachers alike have to influence the next generation by giving students an academic and spiritual foundation. Sexton congratulated each graduate as they received their kindergarten diplomas. Family and friends came from near and far to see the many rehearsed and not-so-rehearsed moments at the annual program. The students began preparing for their special endof-year event in January. Deeringer, a veteran teacher, directs the kindergarten program at Temple Baptist Academy. Deeringer has been teaching for more than 30 years, 21 of which have been at Temple. “Mrs. Deeringer is fa-

mous here. A large number of our students, including high school students, have had Mrs. Deeringer as a teacher,” said Temple Academy principal David Whitaker. Reflecting on the year, Deeringer said, “What a wonderful time we’ve had this year, working hard, learning, growing, laughing and enjoying each other. We have made some sweet friendships. I always learn as I teach. God always blesses hard work, and these students have worked hard and have been blessed and are a blessing to me. They performed their special parts in such a way as to bring delight to all who watched. ” Several of the Temple High School seniors graduating this year had Deeringer as their kindergarten teacher. All of them, without exception, have said that she made

Nursing excellence Parkwest, Peninsula honor best during Nurses Week A pair of veteran nurses – one a certified wound and ostomy care nurse and the other known for enhancing the intravenous skills of the nursing staff – recently took the top award at Parkwest Medical Center’s annual National Nurses Week reception to recognize nursing excellence. Scott Barnett of Parkwest’s Enterostomal Therapy department and Sandy Irons of its Special Procedures department were named winners of the 2013 Leanne Baker Professional Nurse Award, the most prestigious honor given to nurses of Parkwest and Peninsula Hospital. “The Leanne Baker Award is really special to me,” said Janice McKinley, Covenant Health’s senior vice president and chief nursing officer who presented the Baker awards. “As we talked about the individuals who epitomize what a professional nurse looked like, it was Leanne Baker. What would Leanne Baker do? How would she manage the care of our patients? She set that professional standard. She had compassion for every patient and she was a true leader and a clinical expert.” The award, presented annually in memory of the award’s namesake, recognizes the best of the best of those who help set the standard for professional nursing at Parkwest. Baker contributed to the standard for nursing care through her compassion for the patient, professional demeanor and unwavering leadership. Traditionally presented to

recipients in two areas – Professional Practice and Nursing Leadership, both winners of this year’s award were nominated in the area of Professional Practice.

She embraces her role and Lassiter

This award honors an employee of Parkwest Medical Center who best exemplifies:

■ the ability to relate to fellow employees, patients and visitors in a compassionate manner ■ a positive attitude in times of stress or daily challenge ■ a commitment to excellence in thoughts, words and deeds ■ daily demonstrates the Standards and Behaviors of Parkwest Medical Center. Nagle has worked at Parkwest since 2002, having served in both Critical Care Unit and the Child Birth Center prior to moving into Ambulatory Staging.

Valerie Nagle isn’t a nurse, but she does make people feel better. That’s because Nagle, a health unit coordinator in the Ambulatory Staging Unit of Parkwest Medical Center, smiles. A lot. To everyone. So it’s little wonder that Nagle was presented Parkwest’s 10-Foot Award – an award that commemorates a hallmark of former Parkwest Chief Administrative Officer Wayne Heatherly’s administration that no employee should be within 10 feet of another employee, volunteer, patient or visitor without ac-

Happiness is a fit puppy Summer’s coming, and pet owners are looking forward to getting outside with their furry friends. It’s a good time to assess your pet’s general health and fitness level.

Carol Zinavage

Carol’s Critter Corner Dr. Marti Drum, assistant professor at the UT vet school and an expert in pet fitness, offers some guidelines to help you determine whether your animal companion might need a little shapeup. View your pet from above. You should see a curved indentation just behind the rib cage. A straight line from head to tail could mean that your pet is overweight. If his middle is wider than his shoulders and hips, he’s probably obese. View your pet from the side. There should be a nice “tuck” behind the rib

cage, before the hind legs. A straight line or sag in the belly area likely means your pet is overweight or obese. Cats are especially prone to belly fat. Gently run your fingers along your pet’s rib cage. The ribs should be felt easily with very little pressure. Check for extra padding and folds at the base of the tail. Except in some rare breeds like Shar-Pei, an extra roll of skin in that area indicates obesity. If you’re feeding your pet table scraps, reconsider. Dr. Drum says, “Table scraps are very calorically dense. A visibly small

amount of food to a person is a large amount for a pet. One ounce of cheese eaten by a 20-pound dog is equivalent to two and a half hamburgers eaten by a person. A cup of milk for a cat equals five Hershey bars for a human.” Scraps can cause vomiting and diarrhea, and may contain potentially toxic ingredients not recognized by the average pet owner. So as much as you want to indulge the little beggar at your feet, resist the urge and stick to food and treats made just for pets. Pets are built for daily exercise. If you’re a “weekend warrior” who hikes with

your dog, that dog needs activity during the week. Just a 10- to 30-minute walk twice a day will help condition your pal for weekend activities. And you benefit, too! A fenced yard doesn’t automatically guarantee exercise for your pet; napping in the springtime sun is too tempting. Get out there and throw the ball! And taking your dog with you to the mailbox or out in the yard while you’re weeding are easy ways to build in exercise. As with humans, the consequences of pet obesity are dire. Arthritis, ACL tears and other orthopedic problems, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, chronic skin infections – overweight pets are susceptible to all of these. And those vet bills add up. So do your pet, yourself and your pocketbook a favor – shape up and be happier and healthier for summer! Last week’s column mentioned that the shooting of any bald or golden eagle, or hawk of any type, is a federal offense and should be reported.

NEWS FROM PROVISION HEALTH & WELLNESS

Casey Peer Managing Director, Chief Dietitian

SSummer ummer reci recipes ipes As summer arrives, it brings a variety of wonderful fruits and vegetables. It is recommended that we include 7-10 servings into our diet each day. Here are some tips that will help you reach this goal.

Provision raises the bar for health clubs

Grilled vegetables 6 servings (25 calories, 5g carbs, 0.5g protein) 10 spears asparagus, 2 cups mushrooms, 1 cup onions, 1 cup cabbage. Place on oil-brushed foil. Then brush vegetables with olive oil, sprinkle with herbs and close foil. Cook on grill for 20-25 minutes or until tender.

Grilled beets in rosemary vinegar 6 servings (27 calories, 6.2g carbs, 0.7g protein) 1/3 cup balsamic vinegar, 1 teaspoon chopped fresh rosemary, 1 clove garlic (peeled and crushed), ½ teaspoon herbes de Provence, 3 medium beets (sliced into rounds). Mix vinegar, rosemary, garlic, and herbes de Provence. Marinate beets in mixture for 20 minutes. Preheat grill to high heat and lightly oil grate. Place beets and marinade mixture on foil and wrap. Cook on grill 25 minutes or until beets are tender. Remove from foil, place directly on grill grate for two to five minutes. Serve hot.

Peach and berry salad 4 servings (171 calories) 3 fresh peaches, 1 ½ pint blackberries, 1 pint strawberries (hulled and sliced), ¼ cup honey, ½ teaspoon ground cardamom. Bring medium pot of water to boil. Add peaches and blanch for 30 seconds. Drain and transfer to medium bowl. Cover with cold water and cool. Drain, peel, and slice. In medium bowl, combine peaches, blackberries, strawberries, honey and cardamom. Toss together and refrigerate.

By Shana Raley-Lusk Provision Health and Wellness is not your average fitness club. Provision’s unique way of providing support for members is what sets it apart from the rest. “Yes, we’ve got the latest equipment and technology,” says managing director and chief dietitian Casey Peer. “But that doesn’t get you anywhere without learning how to make healthy habits stick.” Casey talked about the supportive sense of community that has developed over the last two and half years since Provision opened in the Dowell Springs medical

complex off Middlebrook Pike. “We see it especially in our Functional Fitness classes. Participants have a buddy system. They know each other and check on someone who misses a class,” says Casey. That particular class has even started a monthly luncheon. “Everyone brings a healthy dish and spends time together outside of the class. We are a resource to help people reach their goals,” says Casey. This type of buddy system works to create accountability. “You’re around people

who want good things for each other. It’s a very real place and we’re proud of that. People compete with themselves, and when they have questions about how to perform better, they know we have the information. We provide credible answers,” Casey says. Regardless of the participant’s goals, the folks at Provision have programs and staff to guide them in their activity. “We feel a connection to our members,” Casey says. “I have belonged to a variety of facilities and have taught classes in a variety of settings. You really feel the

support when you are here.” Casey also emphasizes the fact that Provision uses a different approach by promoting comprehensive wellness rather than simply fitness. “It takes more time and staff, but it’s what sets us apart,” she says. The difference can be seen in Provision’s work with diabetes, oncology and everything from Functional Fitness to Yoga for Endurance Athletes. “This is a destination; people want to spend time here,” says Casey. “We are a resource to help people reach their goals.”

Upcoming classes The Yoga and Hoops Series fuses the physical and mental benefits of yoga with the playfulness and selfexpression of hoop dance. It is perfect for those new to hooping or anyone looking to spice up their yoga practice. Class begins with gentle stretches to warm the body and still the mind, then f lows into a fun hooping skills series designed to foster creative expression and raise the heart rate. Next, you will be skillfully guided through a yogahoop fusion f low sequence, allowing you to explore your

yoga practice from inside your hoop. Class will close with yoga stretches and a blissful savasana to promote relaxation and renewal. Practitioners of all backgrounds and skill levels are welcome.

NEWS FROM LOY JOHNSON REAL ESTATE

Brookstone Ridge offers homes, building lots near Norris Lake The lack of demand for new homes during the past five years has been a serious deterrent to new home starts and new subdivisions. While homebuyers are now entering the marketplace to take advantage of low interest rates, they are discovering a limited choice of new homes and building lots. One new home community, Brookstone Ridge, has more than 30 building sites, all with water, sewer and underground electric, ready for construction. Located on Norris Freeway, just south of Mountain Road and only a short drive north of Halls, this

neighborhood is within minutes of Norris Lake and the 2,300acre Norris Watershed, with its hiking and biking trails. Homes here are close to shopping ar-

eas in Norris, Clinton and Halls and just a short 30-minute drive to downtown Knoxville via I-75. For anyone working in Oak Ridge, the commute is rela-

tively easy and uncongested. Lynn Leach, owner of Double L Construction, LLC, and one of the developers of Brookstone, says that he has seen an increase in buyer interest in Brookstone’s lots and homes. He notes that a number of new prospects are being referred by current residents who express satisfaction with the family atmosphere and peace and quiet of the neighborhood. “Since there is only one access in and out of the subdivision, our owners see Brookstone as a very safe, secure community,” said Leach.

With more than 70 homes already occupied, Brookstone, with its well-maintained lawns and professionally-landscaped entrance, looks like a stable and growing community. Loy Johnson of Loy Johnson Real Estate, the sales and marketing firm for Brookstone, noted that the prices for new homes will range from the mid-$150’s to just a little above $200,000. Building lots are also available.
