County’s master gardeners cultivate educated planters By Betsy Pickle At the most recent gathering of the Knox County Master Gardeners, the gardeners were more interested in the plants they were eating than the ones beautifying the yard around them. But that didn’t stop them from breaking into shoptalk as they enjoyed the pleasant spring weather and each other’s company at a potluck at the Farragut home of gardener Joyce Montgomery and her husband, Tucker. Knox County has around 75 active master gardeners, about onefourth of whom live in Farragut. They volunteer through the Knox County Extension Office to help the public with horticulture-related information. “We’re not supposed to be laborers, per se,” says Montgomery. “We’re supposed to be educators.” The MGs set up an “Ask a Master Gardener” booth at local farmers’ markets and plant sales. They speak to garden clubs. They answer phones at the extension office and help with community gardens. “Not everybody’s an expert in everything, but everybody has an interest in something,” says Ellen Morar, a Farragut resident and the group’s treasurer. “I like native plants and wildflowers, but … I mostly have volunteered with community gardens, which has been kind of interesting because it’s a sunny project, and I have a shady interest!” Community gardens are popular these days. “Lots of churches have them,” says Morar. “I also work with the Davis YMCA, and they have a huge one that they’re just getting going.” “A lot of the community gardens are growing vegetables so that they can give them to food banks,” says Barbra Bunting, a Hardin Valley resident whose expertise is organic vegetable gardening.

Bill McReynolds, who has lived in Farragut nearly all of his 74 years, became a master gardener in 2000. “I used to teach the vegetable class through the master gardeners,” says McReynolds. “Barbra was in my class. Now she’s taken the reins, and she’s doing the organic.” McReynolds, who is retired from East Tennessee Natural Gas Co., raises garlic, tomatoes and eggplant and sells them at the Tuesday farmers’ market at Ebenezer United Methodist Church. McReynolds started farming as a teenager, helping his grandfather, who was the manager of the Admiral Farragut Farm on Northshore Drive. After his stint in the Navy, he returned to farming and gardening as a hobby. He began selling produce to create an education fund for his granddaughter, Olivia DeAngelo, who’s now a student at To page A-5

Who polices homeowners associations? By Betty Bean Disputes within homeowners groups can get ugly, particularly in condominium developments where neighbors live cheek by jowl. Last Tuesday evening a group of Devanshire subdivision homeowners were set to meet with a reporter at Tracey Gross’scondo to air complaints against their homeowners association. That afternoon, Gross was rushed to the emergency room at Parkwest Medical Center with chest pains and spiking blood pressure. She was stabilized and returned home to host the meeting. Still wearing her hospital bracelet, she pointed to water stains on her living room ceiling.

Condo owners pay monthly dues and annual special assessment fees to fund the external repairs that are the responsibility of the HOA. Gross says the stress of dealing with Devanshire’s unaddressed maintenance issues and financial problems, plus the ongoing tension in the neighborhood, is ruining her health.

She received a reply from MPC director Mark Donaldson, who addressed the question of whether MPC could remove an HOA board for misconduct. “The answer to that is a definitive no. The planning commission does not require the creation of an HOA, so it stands to reason that it has no authority to intervene in the actions of an HOA. I do not foresee a situation in which the MPC would require an HOA or forbid the creation of an HOA” Donaldson wrote. Devanshire Homeowners Association president Ed Johnson declined to comment on the complaints, citing ongoing legal battles, but issued a warning: “If they are talking to the media

Sherri Gardner Howell FARRAGUT FACES Cardiac Kids (Coronary Artery Risk Detection in Appalachian Communities) is a nonprofit with programs to help identify, educate and treat children and their parents who have abnormal cholesterol levels as well as other cardiovascular disease risk factors. To help fund the programs, Cardiac Kids leaders teamed with West Bicycles, 11531 Kingston Pike, for a bike ride with benefits on May 25. The ride offered three routes – 64- and 38-mile rides, or a 4- to 15-mile family ride. Ending where it began at the store in Village Green Shopping Center, the ride went from Farragut to Loudon to Paint Rock Ferry to Loudon through Lawnville. There was a bonus climb over Doug Ridge then home to the bike shop.
Condo wars: about this, they are violating a court order.” The court order Johnson cites is a temporary injunction forbidding Hedden, Gross, Carla Faughnan and four others from acting as Devanshire HOA board members. Members of the dissident group were elected in June 2012 after Johnson and several other sitting board members walked out of an annual meeting. Chancellor Mike Moyers ruled that the election was invalid for lack of a quorum.

Faughnan, Gross, Hedden and others stand by the complaint they swore on the civil summons they filed last May, when they said the HOA had breached its contract to collect dues because its actions were “not in accordance with (HOA) bylaws” and it had failed to provide services and denied the right to speak and vote.

From page A-1 Faughnan, who remains as a board member, finds herself in the peculiar position of being both a named defendant and a member of the plaintiff board. She has lived there for 17 years and bought into an 88-unit condo development with amenities appropriate to a community of that size. Over the years, however, she says she watched with alarm as three other “phases” were added to the subdivision, swelling its population to more than 320 units, all of which have

She says that roof and other repairs, which are the responsibility of the HOA, go unaddressed while money is poured into projects, like installing speed bumps and repaving the swimming pool parking lot. “I told them we should be fiduciaries of our condos, and we should take care of them first,” she said. “My shingles were so brittle that when they bent them back, they popped. I gave them three years’ notice, and then I wrote a letter telling them I would like for this to be
addressed by April 3. After that, I went to the courthouse and sued. I gave them ample warning.” After much wrangling, Faughnan got her new roof, but says others haven’t been as successful. “My neighbor, who pays his assessment fees every month, says it’s no use fighting them. His roof still is not done.

Restaurant booms with smaller sign Eddie Halliday stood next to the monument sign in front of his Chick-fil-A restaurant on Kingston Pike in Bearden Village and said he’s still not entirely sure what the fuss over signage is about. He is an upbeat guy with a wall-to-wall smile whose voicemail message wishes his callers a blessed day and sounds like he means it.
Betty Bean “I mean, look at Kingston Pike,” he said, pointing to the tavern across the street. “There’s a guy over there with a hot dog painted on his front window.” All in all, Eddie’s got a lot to smile about. He has just finished up his first year as operator of the Chick-fil-A on Kingston Pike. It’s been a smashing success, exceeding all its projections. The meeting room is reserved three or four times a day, except,
of course for Sundays, when Chick-fil-A is closed. Did the goodwill generated by his willingness to back off the initial plan to plant a towering pole-mounted sign out front play into that success? He says he doesn’t know, since he hasn’t tried it the other way. He also says he didn’t have much say in the matter, because the decision was made higher on the corporate food chain, where the deciding factor was the serendipitous timing of having another new store in the works that could use the costly pole sign. “The local guy doesn’t have any say,” he said. “That decision comes from design and construction and was made long ago. I was surprised when (City Council member) Duane Grieve came and talked to me about my sign.” The city’s present sign ordinance allows signs up to 50 feet high, and Halliday said it’s the city’s responsibility to enact signage laws it can live with (something that’s in the works with a taskforce that
will be delivering its work product to the Metropolitan Planning Commission later this summer). He says he feels sorry for Greg and Stacy Harb, operators of the soon-to-be opened Fountain City Chick-fil-A, where a 40- tall pole sign has been extremely controversial. “I know that Greg is really excited about opening,
and will be a real asset to the community,” Halliday said. Chick-fil-A’s willingness to switch out the signage to help its West Knox neighbors reduce the visual clutter on Kingston Pike was commendable, but makes its actions even more frustrating to those who had hoped to receive the same consideration in Fountain City.

Kuhlman, Knox GOP aim high in 2014 There will be 34 open elective offices in Knox County in 2014, and GOP chair Ruthie Kuhlman believes Republicans can fill every one of them. It’s no surprise that a primary target for Republicans next year will be the District 13 state legislative seat now held by former county Democratic chair Gloria Johnson. “We’re really working hard to find the right person to run against Johnson,” Kuhlman says. “We know it’s going to take a very strong candidate because of the make-up of the 13th. It’s not impossible for a Republican to win there. It just has to be the right Republican. We very much want to take that seat.” Being party chair is very much a full time job for Kuhlman, and she stays en-

ergized and excited about the party’s prospects. Since her election in January, she has been meeting with community movers and shakers and with Republican leadership top to bottom. “When I was first elected I heard from so many people that they were called on only every two years – when there was an election – and that they never heard from our party between election cycles. They said they would like to be more involved. That was all the motivation I needed.”
Kuhlman set out on a “listening tour,” determined to find ways to build the party. “We have had great leadership for a long time, from the top down through the precinct level, and if more people want to be more involved we need to find ways to accommodate that.” She has met with most former party chairs. She says it’s not surprising that they are a wealth of good information and advice and have been incredibly supportive of getting greater involvement by a larger number of people. Precinct chairs from all across the county gathered for a meeting last week – a first in the history of the party, Kuhlman says she has been told. Those sessions will continue quarterly. Presidents of GOP clubs from across the county
gathered a couple of weeks ago. They will continue to meet bimonthly. A series of dutch-treat luncheons Kuhlman with elected officials will begin this week, Kuhlman said, and will continue until all have met and had an opportunity to have their ideas discussed. As Kuhlman says: “I’m meeting with everybody you can think of. It’s important to what we’re trying to accomplish that we all find ways to work together to achieve our goal of winning in 2014 with the very best candidates. We want every single one of those offices.” Heads up, Democrats. Time to get your game on…

Growing with the ‘masters’ East Tennessee State University. Even with years of farming behind him, McReynolds saw value in becoming a master gardener. “I’ve always been interested in raising plants, and I wanted to get a little bit more knowledge,” he says. “I ended up teaching things.” His MG experience has taken him all over the county. “I’ve raised heirloom tomato plants for the Botanical Garden sale,” he says. “I’ve done work at Ball Camp school and Inskip school. I’ve done some programs for some of the gardening clubs, most recently
in South Knoxville.” McReynolds says there are master gardeners who’ve been in the group longer than he has, and he’s glad to see new ones coming in. “It’s really growing,” he says. “We’re getting a lot of young people, and that’s good.” Montgomery says that when she took the master gardener class in 2002, she thought it would teach her about plants. She soon realized her misconception, but she stuck with it anyway. “It was compatible with one of my purposes of educating people in health and well-being, and I think gardening is a huge part of
From page A-1 well-being,” she says. The master gardeners are a diverse group, Montgomery says. “A lot of these people have advanced degrees in all kinds of stuff – environmental sciences, engineering, chemistry – and they bring that information, and it all is pertinent to what we’re doing,” she says. Montgomery says there’s always a need for more MGs. “Oh yeah,” she says. “Because people are getting greener and greener.” To get help from a Knox County master gardener, call 865-215-2340. Please see related story on Montgomery Trail.
The gardeners enjoyed a beautiful setting for their meeting – the Farragut home of Joyce and Tucker Montgomery.

Joyce and her husband, Tucker, donated a strip of their 50ish-acre farm to the town of Farragut for the trail in memory of Tucker’s father, a longtime physician. Joyce, a Knox County master gardener, has put in countless hours on the beds, but she can’t do it alone. So far, two families have volunteered to adopt a bed this year. Montgomery, an energetic retiree whose time is also taken up by 11 llamas and several horses, pigs and dogs, had a crazy dream about getting help, one that involved the town coming to her rescue. “I thought that by ignoring the trail, letting the weeds grow, that they would get enough complaints that they would say, ‘Hey Joyce, come on, we need to do
something. I’ll send you a crew,’” she says, chuckling. “That didn’t happen.” Montgomery and the town are hoping community volunteers will step up and help with the maintenance of the garden beds. Volunteers can be an individual, family, garden club, civic organization, scout group, church group or neighborhood. Each bed requires about four hours of maintenance a month. The Montgomery Trail, completed in 2010, was landscaped by Knox County Master Gardener volunteers using all native plants, which helps with the maintenance needed. Montgomery will meet with volunteer groups to discuss specific plant identification and requirements. Individuals, families or groups interested in adopting a garden bed should contact Montgomery at wholefoodforhealth@gmail. com.

That is essentially what Dave Hart said as he patted himself on the back for hiring Butch Jones. He said these Vols are now capable of overachieving. If it happens, blame it on Butch. He brought a believable plan, brick by brick he calls it, with an emphasis on accountability. He hired good help, people he knew and could count on without wasting time double-checking to determine which assignments were completed. Jonesâ€™ assistants may, in fact, turn out to be among the most functional units. There are recruiting maniacs in the group. Tireless. Relentless. Going only on what I hear, I am impressed. Go-
ing on what he has seen and heard, so is the athletic director. Hart says what Jones has done is gratifying, even exciting. His first choice of words to describe the coach is â€œpassionate.â€? Thatâ€™s good enough. Passion had to be part of Jonesâ€™ previous success. He has never had overwhelming talent in great numbers. He still doesnâ€™t. After what weâ€™ve been through, even guarded optimism is refreshing in Big Orange Country. I have decided to join the movement. Iâ€™m in â€“ with one out clause. How long I stay will eventually be determined by wins and losses.

were all but overwhelming. However, to truly walk in the way of the Cross is to follow Jesus, day by day. It is to be obedient to His way, to be willing to give up oneâ€™s own will and way, and to become, step by step, like Him. It is to follow, to give, to obey, to suffer, and to die if need be. One who walks with Christ is never alone. Walking with Christ, we learn about him. We also learn things about ourselves we wish we did not have to know. The Crossway is a crossroads. It is where we are called upon to make choices, to turn our faces in one direction or another, and to hold steady. Standing in the Crossway calls us to be true wit-
nesses to Christ. It is an opportunity for growth and for blessing. It is also a risk. Standing in the Crossway can be lonely, confusing, dangerous and sad. Standing in the Crossway may mean standing alone, being faithful even when Christ seems very far away. Standing in the Crossway means bearing the criticisms of those who do not understand, those who disagree, those who scoff. It is the Way of the Cross. It is a path our Lord has walked. It is a place He took a stand on our behalf. It is the very least we can do. We each have to find our own way, our own place, our own Golgotha. Where will you stand in the Crossway?
OK, Iâ€™m in Among very valuable readers are those who, from time to time, offer guidance and coaching tips on how to write these tales of Tennessee. Email address at the bottom invites commentary. I appreciate assistance. I sometimes disagree, but I try to remember to be polite and say thank you. In early December, one reader in particular scoffed at Butch Jonesâ€™ â€œdream jobâ€? comment. He is still scoffing. He says UT may have been â€œaâ€? dream job, considering where the coach had been, but not â€œtheâ€? dream job.
His argument has merit: If Alabama, Florida, Michigan and Notre Dame had extended simultaneous job offers and the pay was comparable, Tennessee would have finished fifth in Jonesâ€™ dream. Another reader had a lot to say about Butch bringing the â€œbestâ€? coaching staff in America. Much of it came
down I-75 from Cincinnati. This reader had never heard of Mike Bajakian and couldnâ€™t pronounce his name. He had heard of Willie Martinez and John Jancek and remembered how bad was their Georgia defense and the exact date they were fired. I acknowledged the messages and moved on. To tell you the truth, blind optimists are more fun than skeptical realists. In winning his first six months at Tennessee, Butch Jones has performed as if this really is his chance of a lifetime. I do believe he is pleased to be the coach at Tennessee. That is heartwarming. If the man was being paid by the hour, he would

Joy in a name Tarr family welcomes Brielle By Ashley Baker Tears of joy streamed down Devon Tarr’s face as she finally held her Ethiopian daughter, Brielle. After 15 months of waiting, filling out paperwork and longing to be together, Devon and her husband, Nathan, were overcome with happiness when they were united with their new daughter in Ethiopia. Nathan and Devon said they knew from the beginning of their time together that they wanted to adopt a child. Just a few days after their engagement in December 2000, the couple began to dream about what their family might look like one day. “Both coming from large families, we were excited about having lots of children,” said Devon. “And we knew that adoption would be one of the ways that the Lord would grow our family in His perfect timing.” Nathan, pastor of Christ Church Knoxville, experienced the blessing of adoption firsthand when his mother and father adopted a 5-year-old Vietnamese boy into their family. In January 2009, the Tarrs said they felt led by God to begin the adoption process. After much research and prayer, they were accepted to America World’s Ethiopia program in April of 2009, where they indicated their wish to adopt a baby girl from 0 to 18 months old. For the Tarr family, adoption was a step of faith financially. The type of adoption they were pursuing carried a final price tag that would
Devon Tarr is overcome with emotion as she and her husband, Nathan, meet the 18-month-old Ethiopian child, Brielle, for the first time. Then, 15 months later, the Tarrs were able to welcome Brielle into their family as their daughter. Photo submitted equal the pastor’s salary for a whole year. Moving ahead on faith, the Tarrs said they found what was needed at every turn. “The Lord really provided through the church and through people who would hear about the adoption process,” Devon said. “The money always came when we needed it.” The Tarrs also received a grant from ShowHope, a Christian organization founded by Mary Beth and Steven Curtis Chapman. Its purpose is to help orphans find homes. “Shortly after we began the process, we decided on
the name ‘Brielle’ for our daughter. We loved that it means ‘God is my strength’ and began praying for our daughter by name every day,” Devon continued. The name proved to be prophetic. The couple received a referral call a year later on May 20, 2010, for a 15-month-old baby girl named “Bire” (pronounced Brie). “We were truly in awe of our God, and the fact that we had been praying for our daughter literally by name for over a year – even before she was orphaned!” Devon said. Devon recalled how some earlier experiences shaped her desire for adoption. “I
had traveled to Kenya and experienced the Lord’s heart for the children there. I had also taken several classes at Wheaton College regarding Third World issues and the plight of the world’s orphans.” Her college studies became a reality in 2010. “Little did I know that on July 20, 2010 – our ninth wedding anniversary and exactly 10 years to the date of my trip to Kenya – we would be in Ethiopia in a little court room listening with joy as a judge pronounced that our precious Bire (Brielle) was now officially our daughter, becoming our fourth child.” The Tarrs were required

Photo by Ashley Baker to take two trips to Africa in order to adopt Brielle. “On the first trip, we had to go through the court system and become her legal parents. On the second trip, we got our visas to bring her home,” Nathan explained. “And as much anticipation and excitement as there was before we met her for the first time,
there was even more as we looked forward to her being part of our family not only legally, but in the flesh!” That day came on Aug. 20, 2010, when the Tarrs came home with Brielle. The family has now been blessed with a fifth child, Gavin, who joins his siblings Kendra, Bryan, Carson and Brielle.

The club meets each Monday 5 p.m. for weigh-in and exercise followed by an informative and motivational speaker at 6, talking on various topics related to nutrition, exercise and healthy living habits. “This group has been very helpful,” Fortune said. “Stepping on that scale each week keeps me accountable to the
group plus they support and encourage me.” Fortune says he did what the doctors recommend: eating more healthy food with less calories and exercising. He goes to the gym regularly, running on the treadmill for cardio and working out on weight machines. Fortune is an inspiration to others on the weight-loss journey. Info: www.mariettacpc.org/.

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers
Trent paints it red and black Prepares to leave Central High after four years By Sandra Clark “Grab your pad,” said Danny Trent. The man who is leaving as principal of Central High School tore out for a campus tour, this reporter jogging to keep pace. Like a politician, he worked the crowd. Spotting a maintenance staffer from the central office, he said, “Yes, those bathrooms are the same as the day they were fixed.” He referred to a refurbishing of the men’s and women’s rooms in the commons area, as elegant as any in town. The maintenance guy just grinned. “You’ve gotta have faith in (the students),” said Trent. “And keep the doors locked,” said the maintenance man.
*** Danny Trent will be the principal at Farragut Middle School this fall, replacing Heather Karnes who retired. He denies asking for the transfer, but says he’s looking forward to the challenge. Until Central, his background was in middle schools, and he was mentored by principals Jim Ivey, Bobby Gratz and Paul Williams. He says the four years at Central will make him a better middle school principal because he now understands what his students need to be successful in high school. “Changes are coming by the second (in education),” he said. All schools will implement the Common Core next year – another challenge for teachers. And another challenge for Trent will be his wardrobe. His closet is filled with red, black and white. He said his mom liked the change from Karns blue because the bolder colors “make your gray hair look good.” Now he needs new clothes in Admiral blue and gray.
*** Back to the tour. Wow! Things look different at Central High School. There’s an explosion of red and black. And no graffiti. The old nets that former principal Pat Mashburn had installed to combat roosting pigeons are gone, replaced by a wall and a banner in red and black that reads: “Dream, Believe, Achieve.” In the commons you’ll find those new restrooms with tile and wallpaper, new tables, a cyber café where kids can access a dozen computers while eating, a television dialed to ESPN and picnic tables outside. There’s new energy at Central and “you can feel it,” says Trent.
One of four new computer labs.

One of 24 student-drawn posters.
Scholarship boards like this one cover exterior walls at Central High School.
Posters and displays are a part. CHS staff have installed exterior signs with the names of scholarship winners. Up by the library, a poster proclaims students who earned all As in the most recent semester. There are students of the month and teachers of the month. “Paint is cheap,” says Trent. Hallways and the library boast 24 huge posters, hand-drawn by students copying artists from the old masters to Georgia O’Keeffe. And there are quotes and slogans everywhere, ranging from Walt Disney to Lil Wayne. “Yes, I know who he is,” says Trent. He asked both teachers and students to recommend quotes, and painted those suggested by teachers outside their classroom. Even classrooms are different at Central, especially in the vocational building out back. The old cosmetology lab has been converted to a health sciences room with hands-on training in CPR and patient care. Graduates get certificates and a head-start in college classes, Trent said. The old storage room is now a “home living” class for special needs
students who learn life skills including job skills at school. And a new culinary arts program to prepare students to work in the food industry will be launched this fall in what was the old woodshop classroom. “We’ve got 100 kids interested and the construction should be done by December,” he said. He patterned the program after a successful one at South-Doyle High School. Thanks to Title One funding, Trent has added four computer labs at Central. He says when testing goes online next year, Central is ready. There’s a professional development room where teachers can meet for planning. Outside, security fences have been installed at either side of the open building, and Trent says the entire campus will be fenced this summer. The building is being rekeyed for better security. The school office and guidance offices have been redone for better workflow. An assistant principal and counselor are now housed upstairs in the freshman wing so students can just drop in.
Knox County Council PTA
So have these changes boosted academic outcomes? Trent says yes, but stresses that it’s all about timing. The standards were changed the year before he came to Central. Under the old standards, Central students were cruising with 60 to 70 percent proficiency. With the tougher standards, the percentages plummeted. In an apples-to-apples comparison over the past four years: ■ Graduation rate was 70 percent. Now it’s 87.5 percent. ■ Biology proficiency was 39 percent. Now it’s 72 percent. ■ Algebra I proficiency was 25 percent. Now it’s 57 percent. ■ ACT scores are up from 19 to 21.5. ■ Enrollment has grown from about 1,050 to 1,125. Trent uses sports terminology to explain his style. “I’m a recruiter. I hired teachers here that I’d want my own kids to have. … Sometimes you have good teams that don’t win,” he said, explaining his staff turnover. “Sometimes you can go stale.” He invited former principal Jon Miller back to the first graduation. “It was a healing point,” he said. When Trent was sent to Central he decided, “If I can love this school just half as much as Jon does, then I’ll be OK.” He encountered a frosty reception from a staff that strongly supported Miller. He just plunged in, attending every student event possible. “We set goals. I told (the faculty) I didn’t want to hear about schools out west or in Halls. We brought in instructional coaches (to help teachers). We kept working harder and started working a little smarter.” His after-hours efforts at Central robbed him of about 15 hours a week to spend with his own family, Trent estimates. “I’m fine with that and I didn’t ask for this transfer. I’m a team player, but it will be tough when I walk out this door for the last time.” Trent’s family includes wife Karen, a veteran kindergarten teacher at Farragut Primary School; and daughters Danyelle, a senior at UT; Lauren, a junior at Maryville College; and Maddie, a recent graduate of Hardin Valley Academy and now a freshman at UT. What’s he walking into? Trent says Farragut is a strong community with a good school. Heather Karnes has been his colleague for 20 years and he’s already walked the campus with her. Trent says he will always be grateful for the support he received from parents, staff and students at Central. “It’s been a good run. “We can measure scores and achievement, but we cannot measure the heart,” he says. “But now it’s time for a new venture.”

Catchin’ up with Kyle By Anne Hart Kyle Testerman calls the four years of his first term in office as Knoxville’s mayor “the best years of my life,” and adds with emphasis, as if anyone would doubt him, “I really mean it. Those were great years – for me, for my family and for the city. “We had a lot of fun and we got a lot done for the good of this entire community for generations on down the road,” he says. Relaxed and reflective at age 78, Testerman looks back on the years 1972-75 with a great deal of pride and satisfaction, mixed with a fair degree of amazement at all that was accomplished in such a short time. Among highlights he points to are the passage of a liquor by the drink referendum, the appointment of the committee that brought the World’s Fair to the city in 1982, the creation of the Beck Cultural Center, and a trip to the White House to watch President Gerald Ford sign the Housing and Community Development Act of 1974, which gave municipalities decisionmaking power over a number of previously federallycontrolled programs.
The first term Testerman doesn’t take all the credit for the successes of those four years. “I had a lot of good people working for me at City Hall that first term, I had a pretty good relationship with City Council and there was also good support in the community for what we were doing.” First elected to the office in 1971 at age 36, the brash, upstart young mayor had already served on City

Council, and was known for being outspoken and even outright defiant when he thought the situation called for it. On other occasions, his genteel Southern up-bringing would carry the day. He was skilled at knowing which tactic would best work to his advantage. Knoxville didn’t have liquor by the drink when Testerman took office. His predecessor, Leonard Rogers, had opposed the voter referendum required to bring it about, but Testerman felt strongly that the change was necessary to attract new business and bring needed dollars to city coffers. To make certain the vote went his way, the mayor sent police officers all over town to shut down the numerous small bars operating as “private clubs” where liquor was being served surreptitiously – and illegally. Testerman says that after that was done he didn’t think it was quite fair that the members of the three country clubs in town – Cherokee, Deane Hill and Holston Hills – could imbibe in those facilities,
but “working stiffs” had no place to get a drink. He leaned on his friends to shut down the bars at the country clubs, and the referendum passed by a margin of almost two to one. Skilled in financial matters, Testerman set about finding other ways to bring cash to the city. The potential for tourist dollars that a zoological park would bring came to mind. The joke around town at the time was that the Knoxville Zoo consisted of a couple of cows and a monkey or two. That wasn’t much of a stretch. Testerman hired Guy L. Smith III and told him to build a real zoo. Money was appropriated, land was purchased, plans were drawn, facilities were built for animals, and a few years later, Knoxville had a modern zoo that brought in tourists and their dollars. That expansion and growth has continued. Today the zoo is a world-class attraction expected to generate some $25 million in revenue this year. Testerman was also determined to stop any waste he could find in city government. When he heard that a lot of employees driving
Kyle Testerman: a short bio Kyle Testerman was born in Knoxville in 1935 and grew up in the Ft. Sanders area. He graduated from The McCallie School in Chattanooga and received undergraduate and law degrees from UT. A businessman and attorney, he was serving on City Council when elected mayor of Knoxville in 1971. Sworn into office in 1972, he served until 1976. He held the office a second time from 1984 to 1987. Testerman is retired and spends time at his homes in North Carolina and Knoxville. His children – Muffet Testerman Buckner, Ben Testerman and Janet Testerman – all live in Knoxville.
city vehicles weren’t putting in a full day’s work, he had city cars painted in what can best be termed “Easter egg colors,” – bright robin’s egg blue, neon yellow and other hues easy for the mayor to spot as he drove around town. After all, no automobile manufacturer was selling vehicles in such horrendous shades. The mayor can laugh about it now, recalling that he found more than a few of those cars parked at bars around town. But at the time he was dead serious. Imagine the shock when the mayor walked in to surprise the drivers and take away their car keys.
one day after hours, poked a finger in the mayor’s chest, and angrily told him, “Blood is going to run in the streets of Knoxville because of you.” Testerman says he poked the man right back and suggested he turn around and take a look at the two very large and heavily armed Knoxville police officers who had quietly arrived in the outer office. “I told him ‘you had better get out of town fast or it’s going to be your blood running in the streets.’” Testerman chuckles, recalling that he later heard the fellow called federal officials to ask for protection – and quickly left town.

The next individual who Nearly 40 years later, Testerman now reveals that gave it a try was a manager during the strike a union at Cherokee Country Club organizer out of Memphis who tried to block entry to swaggered into his office an invited guest when Tes-
terman, a long time club member, hosted a Christmas party there for his City Hall staff. Bob Booker, local civil rights leader, former state legislator and well-respected historian, was the staffer. He was the mayor’s legislative liaison. At that time no black person had ever been admitted as a guest at the club. Testerman stood his ground and Booker made history. The mayor’s next challenge was, as he said at the time, “to bring Knoxville kicking and screaming into the 20th century.” West Town Mall had opened, suburban shopping centers were going up from one end of the county to the other, and downtown was suffering mightily. Stewart Evans of the Downtown Knoxville Association appealed to the mayor to take steps to try to save downtown merchants. That was when Testerman named the committee to explore the possibility of bringing a World’s Fair to Knoxville. He appointed 19 members to the group and named as chair another brash young man – banker Jake Butcher. Testerman served another term as mayor from 1984 to 1987. In a strange twist of fate, his major challenge then was untangling the financial mess and looming city debt left after the World’s Fair closed and the Butcher banking empire collapsed. When asked about highlights of that second term, which included the merger of city and county schools, he says only, “It wasn’t nearly as much fun.” (Note: Writer Anne Hart covered Testerman’s first term as a reporter for the Knoxville News Sentinel. She later worked on his staff.)

Each Elmcroft West resident who is a veteran of military service has had their portrait, years of service, military branch and the location where they were stationed printed on a canvas in the hall of the facility. Crawford will be 93 in July. Photos by S. Barrett
Vietnam veteran Ed Langston volunteered to play the piano following the unveiling of Elmcroft West’s Gallery of Honor. “There are too many vets that are unknown,” said Langston. “Any honors are good.” Langston said he came back from war to an angry America where people were upset with those who served. “Times have changed,” he said. “I remember having bricks thrown at me back then.”
Elmcroft resident and Navy veteran Alvin Williams visited with his son, Vietnam veteran Alvin “Willie” Williams Jr., and his sister, Linda Scimonelli, after the unveiling of the facility’s Gallery of Honor.

Elmcroft West Healthy Lifestyles director Lindsay Wolburg created each memorial by hand for the Gallery of Honor after collecting photos from residents and their families. Each veteran was given a pair of scissors to help cut the ribbon to officially open the display. Afterward, each was given a piece of the ribbon. Elmcroft West resident Linda Clarke stands with the memorial that honors her service as an officer in the Navy.

Networking with U.S. Cellular U.S. Cellular has Knoxville roots, and the Turkey Creek store celebrated those roots with a Farragut West Knox Chamber networking morning on May 30. The parking lot was full, and a large crowd enjoyed the bagels, fruit and juice offered for the 8 a.m. chamber event. Chamber executive assistant Julie Predny stood in for CEO Bettye Sisco, who was not able to attend due to illness. Melanie Lawson, sales manager for the Turkey Creek store, told the group that Knoxville was U.S. Cellularâ€™s first market in 1983. The Turkey Creek store has been open since 2004. Lawson also promoted the companyâ€™s small business package and told the group of the corporationâ€™s commitment to the community and to education. The Calling All Communities program has

focus on excellent customer service.â€? Mannis said every big business started off small. He quoted the late Steve Jobs: â€œYou need a lot of passion for what youâ€™re doing because itâ€™s so hard. Without passion, any rational person would give up.â€? Mannis started his dry cleaning business in 1985 with one store and preowned equipment. He studied accounting in night and weekend classes at Maryville College. â€œI had no idea what I was doing and remember so many nights going home and thinking, â€˜I just physically canâ€™t do this anymore.â€™ Like every new business owner I also faced financial challenges. But I really had no choice but to go forward.â€? Today, Prestige operates 11 locations in Knox and Anderson counties with more than 140 employees, five delivery routes, a shoe repair division, and disaster restoration operations in
Knoxville and Nashville. Small businesses contribute mightily to the economy, he said. Nationally, 28 million small businesses (those with 500 or fewer employees) employ 57 percent of the countryâ€™s private workforce and pay 44 percent of the countryâ€™s payroll. Mannis has returned to Prestige Cleaners, which is poised to make a major acquisition, he said. His advice to small business owners: â€œWork hard, provide excellent customer service, take care of your employees, always be ethical and make a difference in the community.â€? Most know of Mannisâ€™s work to bring HonorAir to Knoxville. He also sponsors Project Classroom, which has donated $90,000 to schools locally. So long, Eddie. Keep up the good work. I wish we could find a place for you in government. Knoxville and Knox County would be better for it.

Pizza, partners and the Maddio girls FHS alums open new restaurant By Sherri Gardner Howell The promise of a free dinner, the chance at free pizza for a year, door prizes and all the excitement of a grand opening were all in play on May 24 when Tennessee’s first Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint opened in Northshore Town Center. But one of the biggest thrills was getting to meet the soon-to-be famous Maddio girls! Four partners – all Farragut High School and University of Tennessee graduates – have joined to open the first franchise for Maddio’s in the state. Bryan Begbie, Ryan Griffith, Glen Lax and Lane Griffith did considerable promotion prior to their opening in the press and on Facebook, featuring three little girls they dubbed the Maddio Girls. Everyone was wondering – just who were the Maddio Girls? “They are my nieces, Lane’s daughters,” said Begbie, with a laugh. “The Maddio girls are Reagan, Brooklyn and Landry Griffith.” All the promotions must have worked, as customers were lined up along the sidewalk at Northshore Town Center for the grand opening. Everyone in line when the doors opened was entered to win a coupon for free pizza for a year. “The coupons are good for 52 pizzas,” said Begbie, “and we don’t put any restrictions on how and when they are used. One winner
was a 4-year-old who has a family of eight. They use several coupons when they come it and have a free meal for the family.” Other winners may want to use several for a pizza party at school or for friends, said Begbie. “They have 52 pizzas and a year to use them.” Begbie said he knew what was special about Uncle Maddio’s pizzas, but has still learned a lot in these first weeks. “What sets us apart is that we specialize. We build your pizza right in front of you to your specifications. You are watching us, and, if you want a little more cheese, just say so. “We make the dough upfront, cook the meats right there. “And our pizzas have a six minute cook time, thanks to our high temperature conveyer-belt oven.” Begbie describes the Maddio crust as “Neapolitan, New York style – medium crispy and puffy around the edges.” They offer regular, gluten-free and whole wheat crusts, six sauces, seven cheeses, 27 vegetables and 15 meats. Sizes for the pizzas are kids’ size, adult individual, medium and extra large. The gluten-free crust has really been a surprise in its popularity, said Begbie. “It has already been a great seller and created some very loyal customers who have been back several times. I have had to quadruple our order for ingredients to make the gluten-free crust since we opened.”
Enjoying the excitement of Uncle Maddio’s Pizza Joint’s grand opening is partner and chef Bryan Begbie.
The pizza joint also has salads, paninis and sandwiches. “Try the chicken salad,” suggested Begbie. Community involvement is important and has already begun, said Begbie. On June 1, the restaurant donated 50 percent of the day’s profits to the Northshore Elementary School playground campaign. Uncle Maddio’s is located at 2052 Town Center Boulevard in the new Northshore Town Center at the intersection of Northshore Drive and Pellissippi Parkway.

Medical director named Provision Center for Proton Therapy has named Marcio Fagundes, M.D., as medical director. A board-certified radiation oncologist, he comes to Knoxville from the ProCure Proton Therapy Center in Oklahoma City where he has practiced proton therapy and conducted significant research. He will start Fagundes his new role on July 15. “The addition of Dr. Fagundes as medical director is an important step in building our team of proton therapy experts,” said Mary Lou DuBois, president of Provision Center for Proton Therapy. Dr. Fagundes will be joining Provision Medical Group, led by Allen
Meek, M.D., radiation oncologist. “One of the most rewarding aspects of being a proton therapy radiation oncologist is seeing patients who have been able to resume normal, active lives as cancer survivors. The opportunity to relocate to Knoxville and to provide proton therapy to this area is a privilege,” said Dr. Fagundes. The Provision Center for Proton Therapy will begin treating patients in early 2014. The Provision Center for Proton Therapy is part of Provision Health Alliance’s comprehensive outpatient cancer treatment campus located just off Middlebrook Pike at Dowell Springs. Dr. Fagundes will be the featured speaker at the Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce breakfast at 7:30 a.m. on July 23 at Fox Den Country Club.

HEALTH & LIFESTYLES NEWS FROM PARKWEST, WEST KNOXVILLE’S HEALTHCARE LEADER • TREATEDWELL.COM • 374-PARK
TAVR procedure saves vacation for woman vexed by valve trouble Many heart murmurs are harmless, but sometimes an unusual sound signals a more serious problem. Jean Spach had been faithful about going to her cardiologist, Dr. Mukesh Sharma, for a checkup every year. “I had a routine echocardiogram every year because I knew I had a heart murmur,” she said. But in February 2012, the doctor grew concerned. “This time when he did the test, Dr. Sharma said it was severe,” said Spach. “Well I almost fell out of the chair! I said, ‘What are you talking about?’ I had no symptoms.” Spach had developed aortic valve stenosis, a narrowing of the valve from the buildup of calcium on the valve’s ﬂaps. This requires the heart to work harder to pump blood. Aortic valve stenosis most often occurs in people over 80. It tends to get worse over time and can lead to heart failure. Many patients with aortic valve stenosis must have open-heart surgery to replace the valve, which involves cutting open the chest and months of recovery time. “I told them, no, I was looking forward to a trip to Paris in April with my daughter! I didn’t want to interrupt that trip,” said Spach. Spach did postpone the trip, however, and her doctor referred her to Parkwest Medical Center for a minimally-invasive procedure to replace the aortic valve, without cutting open the chest. The procedure is called TAVR,
or transcatheter aortic valve replacement. So far, TAVR is only approved for people who would not tolerate traditional open-heart surgery and who meet a strict set of criteria. On June 25, 2012, Spach became only the ﬁfth person in East Tennessee to undergo TAVR, performed Dr. Chadwick W. Stouffer of the East Tennessee

Cagle will also have primary responsibility across the continuum for compliance with regulatory agencies including The Joint Commission as well as serving as a liaison for the Schools of Nursing and their Advisory Boards. “Lynn has demonstrated loyalty and a commitment to clinical excellence and service excellence during her employment,” said senior vice president Janice McKinley. “She has embraced change and has led initiatives such as the development and implementation of hourly patient rounding for Parkwest and was instrumental in helping her nursing unit win a National Gold Achievement Award from Professional Research Consultants.” McKinley said Cagle will also lead professional development and coaching for department
controlling the ﬂow of blood through the heart. After the procedure, Spach spent only three nights at Parkwest Medical Center. “The care at Parkwest could not have been better,” she said. “I woke up in intensive care, and there was this beautiful young nurse at the foot of my bed with a table and a laptop, and she never moved, she was right there. She was lovely, everyone was lovely to me.” And what about that trip to France? Spach and her daughter, Evelyn Tolin, of Morro Bay, Calif., rescheduled their adventure and left on April 1, 2013. They spent two weeks exploring Paris, Versailles and Normandy. Spach said she was especially moved by the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial. “What an emotional experience that was for me,” said Spach, who was in high school during World War II. Jean Spach of Oak Ridge, 84, had her aortic valve replaced with “It was such a huge part of our lives and shaped everything we did.” a minimally invasive technique at Parkwest Medical Center. And today Spach said she is grateful to have done the TAVR procedure and have a healthy The TAVR procedure enabled Spach to go on a twoheart again. week tour of France that included a meaningful visit to “I’m feeling well and have felt the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial. well since last June,” she said. “I am very grateful to anybody who had anything to do with it. “I am so glad I did not spend Cardiovascular Surgery Group. the groin and up to the heart. “Dr. Stouffer said I was in the A prosthetic valve is then last summer recovering from ﬁrst group of about six patients, and threaded through the catheter.

Parkwest earns an ‘A’ in patient safety
Lynn Cagle BSN leaders, working with the Senior Leadership Team and staff to promote higher quality patient care. Cagle has two decades of progressively responsible nursing experience, with the majority of those years at Parkwest. She has served Parkwest as Director of Medicine since 2008. Prior to that, Cagle was Nurse Manager on the Parkwest Cardiac Observation Unit from 2000-2008, also having served as a staff RN on the Critical Care Unit from 1998-2000.
Parkwest was one of 780 hospitals to receive an “A” score. Of the 2,514 general hospitals issued a Hospital Safety Score, 780 earned an “A,” 638 earned a “B,” 932 earned a “C,” 148 earned a “D” and 16 earned an “F.”
Parkwest Medical Center was recognized with an “A” Hospital Safety Score by The Leapfrog Group, an independent national nonproﬁt run by employers and other large purchasers of health beneﬁts. The A score was awarded in the latest update to the Hospital Safety ScoreSM, the A, B, C, D or F scores assigned to U.S. hospitals based on preventable medical errors, injuries accidents and infections. The Hospital Safety Score was compiled under the guidance of the nation’s leading experts on patient safety. The ﬁrst and only hospital safety rating to be peerreviewed in the Journal of Patient Safety (April 2013), Hospital Safety Score is designed to give the public information they can use to protect themselves and their families. Calculated under the guidance of The Leapfrog Group’s eight-member Blue Ribbon Expert Panel, the Hospital Safety Score uses 26 measures of publicly available hospital safety data to produce a single score representing a hospital’s overall capacity to keep patients safe from infections, injuries, and medical and medication errors. To see Parkwest’s scores as they compare nationally and locally, visit the Hospital Safety Score website at www. hospitalsafetyscore.org.
Parkwest Medical Center remains on the forefront of diagnosing and treating disease with the most advanced technology available…those who entrust their healthcare to us demand nothing less. But technology alone isn’t enough to bring healing and comfort to patients and families. True healthcare begins with something less expensive, non-invasive and pain free. It’s called listening.
At Parkwest…listening is state-of-the-art.

the sight of that big white beauty heading straight toward you for the first time! Before you get in the water, you go through a short educational program, starting with a video. The trainers tell you more about the whales and answer any questions. One of the most important things to learn is that this activity is planned for the whales’ benefit. Because they’re captive, they must occasionally submit to veterinary care. Therefore, they need to be comfortable with the presence and touch of humans. Captive belugas are found in only nine aquariums nationwide. The care of these animals, and the observation that goes with it, helps all beluga populations. As you’ve probably heard, they’re quite smart. They get bored just like humans do, and they need stimulation and activity. The trainers and

will have much to see and do. They (and maybe you?) can even crawl right into the middle of a penguin habitat and pop their heads up to see what’s going on! And don’t miss “Dolphin Tales,” a live show that will take your breath away. For those who want a more intensive experience, there is a rich variety of interactive programs (ticketed and purchased in advance) for all ages and abilities, including “Beluga and Friends.” Trained scuba divers can access the Ocean Voyage exhibit, home of the whale sharks, earth’s biggest fish. It takes a big tank to hold them; in fact, it’s the largest indoor exhibit of fish in the world, holding 6.3 million gallons. The whale sharks are so big (up to 35 feet long) that your jaw will hit the floor the first time you see one, yet they’re gentle plant eaters with a gullet the size of a dime! If you’re looking for a vacation option a little closer to home this year, you can’t beat The Georgia Aquarium. For more information or to purchase tickets for the Aquarium or any of its interactive programs, visit www. georgiaaquarium.org.

Massage Menu of Services ■ Relaxation - For stress relief or pampering ■ Sports and Rehabilitation - with the goal of promoting tissue repair in addition to relaxation.
New massage therapist
joins the Provision team
■ Deep Tissue - Targets the deeper layers of muscle and connective tissue. ■ Lymphatic Drainage Massage - Lymph massage, also known in variations as Manual Lymphatic Drainage (MLD) or Lymph Drainage Therapy (LDT), is a gentle, relaxing form of massage that helps the body’s lymphatic system get moving again while reinforcing immune function. It aids in the flow of lymphatic fluid to aid in immune system function. Often sought after surgery, it can assist in the healing process and ensure that lymphatic fluid doesn’t stop flowing. ■ Myofascial - Works on the connective tissue, ironing it out, releasing the tension and promoting flexibility. ■ Aromatherapy Massage - We use nine organic, medical-grade essential oils on the spine and feet. This promotes improvement of the immune system and spinal health. ■ Trigger/NMT - A tender spot is found in the belly of the muscle. It is seen as an on/off switch and is released by applying pressure to the point. Not always a comfortable process but definitely a therapeutic modality that promotes healing and flexibility. Info: 232-1414.

Common reasons for seeking out a Licensed Massage Therapist ■ Helps to relieve muscular spasms and tension ■ Raises and improves immune system efficiency
Massage is a time-tested method for healing injuries, relieving pain and preventing illness. It also helps to reduce stress and produce deep relaxation. The newest member of the Provision Health and Wellness staff, Malynda A. Barakadyn, makes this her focus by
providing highly specialized massage services. “Massage can improve your life, free your body from pain, promote ﬂexibility, refresh your mind and uplift your soul,” says Malynda. One method Malynda uses is reflexology, which involves applying pressure to the hands, feet or ears
using specific thumb, finger and hand techniques. The nervous system begins at the brain and travels out to the extremities of the body, specifically the feet, hands, ears and scalp. Along the way, the nerves come in contact with organs, glands and other systems of the body.
Reflexology clears those nerve pathways through specific touch techniques. “Some issues can be relieved in a single session, but most often it takes time to reverse what it took time to create,” Malynda says. “Ultimately, it is relaxing and refreshing every time,” she adds.
■ Improves blood and lymph circulation ■ Promotes tissue healing ■ Increases the healthy functioning of skin ■ Engenders profound relaxation ■ Offers emotional reassurance ■ Improves appearance ■ Sports and work-related injuries and post-illness and surgery support
