Great year planned for Halls B&P By Jake Mabe 2012 is shaping up to be a big year for the Halls B&P. Shopper-News general manager Shannon Carey, who is the B&P president for 2012, says the organization is gearing up to celebrate its 60th anniversary. “We’re inviting past presidents and past Halls men and women of the year to come to our meetings and be recognized,” Carey says. “If you know any, get them in touch with me (922-4136 or Shannon@ ShopperNew sNow.c om). Right now they are going to be recognized through-
out the year, but we are in the planning stages for an after hours event which will probably be held in the spring at which we’ll recognize these folks.” Carey says the B&P is looking for volunteers. “You don’t have to be on the board to serve on or chair a committee.” Committees include the annual prayer breakfast on Good Friday (which Kathy Duggan is chairing this year), as well as the Partners in Education event that takes breakfast to the faculty and staff at all Halls schools and Halls feeder
mas Parade, both of which are in December. “We had a great parade (Dec. 3) but we do need help to keep that going.” Other standing committees include the website committee (www.hallsbusiness. com), the programming committee and the membership committee. Carey says that in lieu of the old litter commitShopper-News general man- tee, Knox County Sheriff Jimager Shannon Carey is the my “J.J.” Jones has agreed to Halls B&P president for 2012. continue to mow the medians through Halls this year using Photo by S.

“We have a great time. I think when people hear ‘Halls B&P,’ they get the wrong idea. We are not a networking group. We are business leaders who care about the community. Networking happens in that context. Our main focus is to promote Halls businesses and help the community. “The money we raise goes straight back into the community when it’s needed. For example, when Second Harvest Food Bank flooded last year, we were able to give them a donation, which
sions are appealable to City Council, and then to Chancery Court. One basis for the challenge is the city’s denial of a permit at Highland Memorial Funeral Home in Bearden, which was leased by Rose Mortuary, owner of the former Mann Chapel in Bearden as well as its main funeral home on Broadway. Rose president Kent Marcum confirmed that the city nixed a request to relocate and renovate a small, singlebay existing crematory from a work area in the cemetery to Highland Memorial’s main building on Kingston Pike. “It was there when we got there, and we operated it for several years. The equipment got old and we looked into getting a permit to move it, but the city said it had to
be in an industrial zone,” Marcum said. “So we just shut it down.” A group of funeral directors then started East Tennessee Cremation Services in Blount County, Marcum said, and the cooperative arrangement works well. He said he would not consider adding a crematorium to the Broadway funeral home, which is surrounded by the revitalized Old North Knoxville and Fourth & Gill neighborhoods. “I’m not going to try and stick one in a neighborhood.” Community Awareness Network spokesperson Nan Scott said that she and others plan to attend this week’s MPC meeting and will present research they have done on the issue of locating crematoria.

Happy trails, Larry The New Year is a time of new beginnings. Thus it is for us at the Shopper. Our longtime colleague Larry Van Guilder is leaving us. He’s taken a job as an accountant for Knox County Trustee John Duncan. He’ll be missed. Larry showed up on our doorstep back in 2005. He’d left the corporate world behind to chase his dream of becoming a writer. Some might think making a career change in your 50s is a bit akin to Don Quixote tilting windmills. But Larry

When I got sick in May 2010, Larry stepped up to the editor’s desk and was a natural. After running his humor didn’t look back. But, more than all of this, columns for a few months, we quickly decided Larry we’ll miss Larry because he was an untapped resource. was that rare and wonderful He was soon hustling out in commodity: a true friend.

He and I early on discovered we share a passion for American history. We’d even had a couple of the same professors at UT despite our age difference. Oftentimes, our “news conferences” would eventually evolve into a book review or historical lecture. One day – I don’t even remember now how this happened – we also discovered that Larry has a sweet and soaring tenor voice. Sandra Clark recruited Larry, Emily Schoen and me to sing at a Halls Has It! Day in 2007. It worked out well enough that we did it again at the Fountain City Art Center’s Arta-palooza in October 2009. Somebody even slapped us with a name – The Word Herders. Get it? I’ve always hated the word goodbye, so I’ll use a French phrase instead, Larry. Au revoir. We’ll see you again. Meanwhile, things head onward and upward here at the Shopper. Sandra’s already got a ton of ideas for 2012. Ruth and I will still be out there swapping stories about your friends and neighbors. If you find yourself driving on Doris Circle one weekday afternoon, pop on by here. I’d love to sit a spell and say hello.

What you don’t know
can hurt you
Last week I had the privilege of speaking to a group of senior adults at Grace Lutheran Church. The audience members were attentive and inquisitive, and I thoroughly enjoyed the time I spent with them. Because my time with the Shopper-News is coming to a close, some wanted to know what would become of Mr. Answer Man, that pundit of all things political with a heart of gold lurking behind a barbed pen. Right now I can only say that while Mr. Answer Man will soon be gone from these pages, he will not be forgotten – especially by this writer, because he still owes me a sawbuck. (Mr. Answer Man should stop betting on the Tennessee Titans.) Had Mr. Answer Man been on the scene last week, there’s no doubt he would have been saddened by one thing that occurred. When asked how many knew their County Commission or City Council representatives, no more than a half dozen folks raised their hands. About the same number knew the commission or council district they lived in. Keep in mind these are mature, intelligent local residents, some of whom clearly expressed their dissatisfaction with government in general, particularly at the federal and state levels. But apparently most have forgotten the time honored maxim that all politics is local, and it doesn’t get any more local than the lawmaker in your backyard. “Lawmaker” is not a word to be casually dismissed. Month in and month out, the Knox County Commission, the Knoxville City Council and the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen consider measures that in many cases become ordinances – new laws on the books. Every new law restricts individual freedom in some way, an aspect usually overlooked until one’s own behavior is circumscribed by the law. In fairness, outside of purely political club meetings, I’d guess that most audiences at social or church gatherings would probably respond about like the folks at Grace Lutheran if asked who represents them on their local legislative bodies. Most don’t know, and if you don’t know, your voice will probably go unheard when commissioners and council members deliberate. Other voices are coming through loud and clear, however. It’s a sure bet that attorneys representing special interests know which lawmakers to talk to, and the wishes of those interests don’t necessarily mesh with the common weal. You may not think much of your local government forking over millions in abated property taxes to help a developer build another strip mall, but that developer knows the telephone number and email address of every representative who’ll vote on the request. You may know nothing about it until the morning the first 100-year-old oak comes crashing down across the street from your home. Get to know your commissioner or your council representative. Check the county and city websites regularly (www.knoxcounty.org and www.ci.knoxville.tn.us) for the County Commission and City Council agendas. Be one of the “99 percent” whose voice is heard. What you don’t know can hurt you. Contact Larry Van Guilder at firstname.lastname@example.org.

Greenways advocates pin hopes on Rogero So what’s the deal with greenways? At the recent Greenways Coalition meeting, Knoxville’s two most prominent greenways supporters talked about the future. Both Donna Young and Will Skelton said they believe the new mayor will be more pro-active about greenways than was the last mayor. (Note, they meant Bill Haslam, not interim Mayor Daniel Brown.) A couple of weeks later, Skelton, the most influential citizen greenways activist since the days when Victor Ashe kick-started the movement by increasing the greenways stock from 3 miles to more than 30 miles, told a reporter that he is hopeful that Mayor Madeline Rogero will “… get the greenway program started again,” and predicted that this will happen. So what’s the deal? The city’s website says Knoxville has around 50 miles of paved greenways plus another 15 or so miles of unpaved trails in its inventory. So did Haslam, who is well known as a runner/biker, somehow drop the ball? Donna Young, who pushed the cause with nearmessianic zeal during her 16 years as city greenways
Betty Bean coordinator, is a recent retiree, but joins Skelton as a citizen advocate. She says she will be watching with great interest to see who her replacement will be. (Mayoral advisor Bill Lyons says Rogero will be moving on this appointment very soon). Here’s the deal with Haslam, from Young’s point of view. His greenways philosophy was too conservative because he wanted projects funded upfront. Toward the end of the Ashe adminisration, Young said the city was moving toward writing a requirement for 5 miles of greenway to be included in annual road contracts. “That was Victor’s initiative, and I just don’t think it was ever brought up again. I thought it was one of the most creative things ever, but it never happened. It would have changed the structure of how we did things. I’m always thinking if you’ve got a plan, somebody will be along to fund it,” she said. Preplanning is important, Young added. “The reason
Donna Young sells daffodils for Knox Green. File photo by S. Clark we got Papermill Bluff (the greenway that runs parallel to I-40, behind the Pilot corporate headquarters at Weisgarber Road) for free is because we had a plan. It was shovel-ready and eligible for that Obama stimulus money.” Young, like Rogero, has a background in planning. She thinks the new mayor’s views will more in line with her own than were Haslam’s. “You inspire somebody with a plan. If you don’t do the plan, you can’t get the
funding. Haslam preferred to have everything fully funded first. The difference going forward will be that Madeline will have a more visionary attitude,” she said. And what’s she hearing about her replacement? Not a thing, Young said, but she trusts Rogero to make a good choice: “The most important thing about the job is to find somebody who loves to do the work. Sixteen years is the longest I ever had a job.”
Republicans scramble for new House seats The upcoming Legislature will redraw state and congressional legislative districts. State Rep. Ryan Haynes, who is the new vice chair of the State and Local Government Committee and is close to House Speaker Beth Harwell, will play an active role in the design of districts both locally and statewide. Hayes is a comer within the Legislature. Farragut is fortunate to have him as their representative due to his energy and integrity. His own district will become smaller as all districts need to equivalent in population size. Knox County will have seven whole districts and will lose Jefferson County’s Frank Niceley as a state representative. The new House district without an incumbent will be located in northwest Knox County in the Solway and Karns area. That will trigger a free for all as numerous Republicans will see the primary winner prevailing in November. Rep. Joe Armstrong’s district will take on more people, including some of those Democrats now in

the Harry Tindell district. Tindell’s district will then take on new precincts including Sequoyah, Deane Hill Recreation Center and Rocky Hill. The district will become decidedly Republican. Tindell is a knowledgeable lawmaker who is low key and almost invisible in Knoxville. He may retire if the district is lopsidedly Republican to avoid defeat in November. There is surely going to be a Republican primary there whether Tindell runs or not. Already being mentioned are County Commissioner Ed Shouse (who has sought the seat previously); former City Council members Rob Frost and Marilyn Roddy (Roddy and Frost are not close); Republican activist Ruthie Kuhlmann; former school board chair Dan Murphy; Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis (if the new district includes his South
Knoxville precinct); attorney Greg Hall; former city public affairs director Craig Griffith (chair of GOP committee at Deane Hill); Marsha Grieve (wife of Council member Duane Grieve); and Jim Bletner, Sequoyah Hills neighborhood leader who has run previously. County Commissioner Jeff Ownby is mentioned too as he is making opposition to closing Lakeshore Mental Health Institute his signature issue. Former Vice Mayor Joe Bailey told me he would not run. UT law student Alexander Waters (son of well known John and Beth Waters) is being urged to consider it but has declined to date. He is candidate for delegate in the Republican Presidential Primary for Jon Huntsman. Roddy has just come off a losing state Senate race and will need to make her next campaign a winning one to avoid being considered a perennial candidate. She was weak in her home precinct of Sequoyah in the state Senate contest. On election day, Roddy tied Becky Massey in Sequoyah 219 to 219.
■ Rob Frost is applying to be City Council attorney and would not run if he is chosen for that position. He was openly for Massey over Roddy and active for Marshall Stair for Council. Pavlis and Bailey were for Massey, too, in the recent GOP senate primary. Pay and duties for new council attorney have not been determined. ■ Chip Berry, campaign manager for Madeline Rogero, will work for her at city hall but uncertain in precisely what role. He has a very pleasant manner and makes friends easily. He comes from the nonprofit world. ■ Marshall Stair spent much of the Sunday (Dec. 18) after his swearing in delivering poinsettias to numerous supporters across the city. This trait of thanking key supporters will hold him in good stead in future endeavors. Knoxville florists are no doubt pleased as well. ■ The new Knoxville City Council meets for the second time at 7 p.m. Tuesday, Jan. 10.

Run, Harry, run Next week, state Rep. Harry Tindell will announce whether or not he will run for re-election. He’s promised a decision by Jan. 19. We hope he runs.
Sandra Clark Tindell has represented District 13, a North Knox city district, since 1990. But this year he will face a radically different district and a small herd of opponents. Republicans control both House and Senate during redistricting. Democrats, beware. Tindell’s district has shed Democratic voters into Rep. Joe Armstrong’s 15th District, and the 13th is being stretched to the Sevier County line. It’s also gaining Sequoyah Hills, Deane Hill and Rocky Hill. Yikes! People with business in Nashville aren’t eager to see Tindell leave. Register of Deeds Sherry Witt says Knox County could not have a better legislator. “Harry sees the big picture and has learned to work with both parties. He just doesn’t have a partisan attitude. I’m 100 percent Republican, and I’ve always worked well with Harry. He’s strong in Nashville and that’s what we need.” County Mayor Tim Burchett, a fiscal conservative who served with Tindell in the House, agrees: “There’s one person I went to in the House who knew more about the budget than anybody else and that was Harry Tindell. He’s the go-to man on the House
Harry Tindell File photo by B. Bean side like Randy McNally on the Senate side. “Harry understands where the money comes from and where it’s going. He understands the importance of our bond rating and is very knowledgeable. He’s easygoing, and when everybody else was being emotional, he was always calm and level headed. He never got caught up in all the games, and he didn’t look for publicity. “You’ve got your show ponies and your workhorses, and Harry is a workhorse.” Former state Sen. Jamie Woodson, now president and CEO of the State Collaborative on Reforming Education, says she couldn’t have said it better. She also has some experience with redistricting. As a junior House member in 2002, she was forced to run for re-election in a district that got stretched all the way to White Pine. She prevailed and says Tindell would have a chance to do so as well. “Harry was a very thoughtful colleague and is respected on both sides of the aisle as a leader on many issues,” Woodson said. She recalls his work during the planning phases of the lottery scholarship program and says he was an
invaluable member of the team. “We had to build a program from the ground up, assuring that we protected the fiscal stability of the state while building in transparency. Harry was very engaged in constructing that balance between best business practices and the transparency that is needed in government. He is a very thoughtful legislator and his work with the budget and on the finance committee has been significant.” Tindell has a plan for deciding whether to run. He will look at how the new district has changed from the old and the political makeup of the new district. He will also assess “my ability to devote the necessary time and resources to a campaign in the new district. “Once we pass a plan, I will make a quick decision.” We hope he runs. His record of service is strong and voters always benefit from a choice. Knox County’s legislative delegation runs the gamut from thoughtful and wise to nuttier than a bowl of almond crunch. Tindell falls toward the Downtown Knoxville from “across the river” at the new Urban Wilderness Photo by Jack Rose smart side.
Legacy Parks sets 2012 goals By Sandra Clark Turn up your hearing aid to learn a new vocabulary in 2012. Words like: ■ Urban Wilderness ■ Battlefield Loop ■ Sawdust Trail Carol Evans, executive director of Legacy Parks Foundation, says her group has raised nearly $3 million in five years to acquire 300 acres of new park land and protect another 1,000 acres of forest and farms.
As 2011 wound down, the final parcels to complete the Civil War forts trail were acquired, through efforts of the Aslan Foundation. “All three forts are protected,” said Evans. Fort Dickerson already is a city park. Dickerson, along with Fort Higley, Fort Stanley and Fort Armstrong comprise the “Battlefield Loop,” where Legacy Parks hopes to help build 30 miles of trail on which to walk, hike and bicycle in South Knox-
ville, just across the Tennessee River from downtown. “What fun. You go for a hike and run into a Civil War fort,” said Evans. It’s important to have the historic parts of the Battlefield Loop interpreted. Signage is huge. “The Community Design Center has looked at the Loop and we know (a trail) is quite doable,” said Evans. “We don’t know whether it will be paved or sawdust.”

So what’s next? “Our focus this year is on making it easier to get outdoors, to create a system of trails in Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness,” said Evans. Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis is a driver, keying on his South Knox council district. It probably doesn’t hurt that Mayor Madeline Rogero calls South Knox home as well. “(Recreation) is an economic driver,” says Evans.

in a crowd The black and white crane is the rare hooded crane from Asia.
NATURE NOTES | Dr. Bob Collier
year ago, my December column titled “Cranes for Supper?” addressed the plans by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency to create an open season on sandhill cranes in southeast Tennessee. On the brink of extinction, there were only 30 breeding pairs of the eastern population of sandhills left, back in the 1930s. Federal protection, wildlife refuges and wetland management led to a remarkable rebound in their numbers. They reproduce slowly, starting at ages 5-7, and have only one chick per year; only a percentage of those survive to adulthood. In spite of that, over the last five years we have averaged around 20,000 sandhill cranes wintering yearly down at the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge in Meigs County. Reflecting what a large majority of East Tennesseans thought, the Tennessee Ornithological Society had taken the position that “the fall arrival and overwintering of tens of thousands of sandhill cranes in Tennessee should be celebrated as a wildlife spectacle and a watchable wildlife opportunity.” In January of 2011, after extensive public input showing 72 percent of responses opposed to shooting the cranes to 28 percent in favor, the TWRA decided to delay the decision on the matter for two years, citing “insufficient data.” My column and other writers and opinions agreed that some areas of our country do indeed consider the cranes to be a wildlife spectacle, encourage and publicize watching the birds, and rake in millions
of tourist dollars in the process. I have a “Crane Watch” brochure from Kearny, Neb., with ads for motels, inns, restaurants and other opportunities for tourists to spend their money as they enjoy seeing the sky filled with as many as 500,000 sandhill cranes arriving along the Platte River in March and April. And another concern about shooting at the big majestic birds was that someone would mistakenly shoot one of the endangered whooping cranes that often fly along with the sandhills. After all, people and cows get shot every year, and they look a lot less like deer than the whoopers look like sandhills. Well, the thoughts of all those issues of last year came rushing back this last Monday, when we had the amazing good fortune to take part in a real, rare, wildlife event. Here is the story: On Dec. 3 a couple of knowledgeable women from the Crane Foundation stopped by the Hiwassee Refuge to admire the 10,000 sandhill cranes arriving for the winter. And among the crowd of huge, tall gray birds they spotted someone different. Hanging out with all the other cranes, this one was a bit shorter and had a slaty-gray body, black wings, tail and legs, and a striking white head and neck. The ladies called their headquarters in Wisconsin for backup, and the stranger was quickly confirmed to be a very rare bird from Asia, a hooded crane. Just like gossip in a neighborhood, the word swept through the birding community with the speed of an iPod, and peo-
There are more than 10,000 sandhill cranes at the refuge.
ple began showing up from all over the country to see the bird. We thought we’d give it a try on the way home from Christmas at our son’s home in north Alabama. Thanks to immobile traffic on I-26 south of Chattanooga, we didn’t arrive at Hiwassee Refuge till 4:15 the afternoon of the 26th. There stood 20 or 30 eager birders with scopes and cameras, including birder and author Stephen Lyn Bales from Ijams Nature Center, and birders from Maine, Oregon, Missouri and Florida. After a while, a bald eagle flew across the scene, stirring things up a bit. And as the hundreds of cranes settled down again, the lady from Missouri, eye glued to her scope, announced “there’s our bird!” Out it walked, a black-and-white figure in a crowd of gray. And we all stood and stared at a creature that had flown over the bogs of Siberia, standing in a field in Tennessee. It’s the kind of happening that birders love to sit back and recount for
months and years afterward. Hooded cranes nest in a remote area of Russia north of Mongolia, in a cool, wet, northern world of peat bogs and stunted larch trees. The species was first described in 1834, but because they breed in such a remote area, the first hooded crane nest wasn’t discovered until 1974, 140 years later! They are best known from their usual wintering grounds, where some 3,000 of them stay on the Japanese island of Kyushu, feeding in harvested grain fields and rice paddies. And how rare is our Hiwassee bird? It may be the first one of its kind ever recorded in North America. A hooded crane was seen 18 months ago in Idaho; another last spring in Nebraska; and now, here. If it’s the same bird, it’s the first. In the unlikely event that there are three different ones on tour, then it’s the third. Either way, very rare and very exciting, for the birders and for the crane refuge in East Tennessee. The hooded crane is here because
all those other cranes are here, safe to just hang out and do their thing. We saw an immature whooping crane hanging out at the refuge as well, hopefully to grow to adulthood and add one more chance for us to keep that species on the Earth. A wildlife spectacle, and watchable wildlife opportunity, indeed. And people have come from 27 states and Canada, so far, to share it, and maybe like what else they see here in East Tennessee. The 21st annual Crane Festival at the Hiwassee Wildlife Refuge will be Jan. 14-15 this year, with headquarters at the Birchwood School. The Refuge is off Route 60, about 20 miles northwest of Cleveland, or about 10 miles south of Dayton, near the old Blythe Ferry. Their website is www.tncranefestival. org. If you’ve never seen several thousand of something hanging out together at one time, you should go on down and see how nature was really intended to look. You might see the rare crane.

Old Vol R.A. Dickey is different This correction in The New York Times offers two clues about what is an R.A. Dickey: â€œExtra Bases baseball notebook last Sunday misidentified, in some editions, the origin of the name Orcrist the Goblin Cleaver, which Mets pitcher R.A. Dickey gave one of his bats. â€œOrcrist was not, as Dickey had said, the name of the sword used by Bilbo Baggins in the Misty Mountains in â€œThe Hobbitâ€?; Orcrist was the sword used by the dwarf Thorin Oakenshield.â€? 1. What that tells us is the former scholar-athlete at the University of Tennessee honors his bats with exotic names. 2. Dickey got his mythology all tangled up. Everybody knows Bilbo Bagginsâ€™ sword was called Sting. Robert Alan Dickey, 37, born-again Christian, ex-Vol, English lit major, 3.52 grade
point average, husband, father of three, knuckleball pitcher, author, adventurer, â€œStar Warsâ€? nerd, avid reader, budding cyclist and mountain-climber, is one versatile, quirky dude. And that is just the capsule description of this very talented, humorous and decent man. Even as we speak, Dickey is attempting to climb Mount Kilimanjaro to raise funds and awareness for two of his 17 favorite causes. Assuming he gets back alive, he will be inducted into the Tennessee baseball hall of fame and honored at the Thurman Munson
awards dinner in New York for baseball success and philanthropic works. Dickey does good deeds. He helps operate Honoring the Father Ministries which provides medical supplies, powdered milk and baseball equipment to the poor in Latin America. He visits schools and hospitals. Because Dickey understood the situation, the Mets picked him on 9/11/11 to present an American flag to a remarkable soldier who returned from war in Afghanistan. Before the baseball opener, Dickeyâ€™s memoirs, â€œWherever I Wind Up,â€? are due out. The book supposedly has enough stuff to become a movie. R.A. Dickey on the mound has more fierce competitiveness than fastball. Maybe you have seen his intense expressions on TV. Off the mound, he is calm, peaceful, polite. Few in baseball are as articulate. None have clubhouse lockers loaded with heavier reading material. Dickey can also communicate in numbers. From his midseason 2010 call-up through the end of 2011, he pitched 383 innings with a 3.08 ERA. Roy Halladay,
Jered Weaver and Justin Verlander were better. C.C. Sabathia was not. There are other numbers: After long laboring at toonear-minimum pay, he has a guaranteed contract worth more than $4 million. His goal is to be baseballâ€™s best bargain. OK, if you really must know, his career record is 41-50. Dickey, no relation to Doug, was great at Tennessee and won two games in the 1996 Olympics but missed the early money. Texas drafted him in the first round and agreed to $850,000 as a signing bonus. In the standard physical exam, the Rangers discovered his right elbow was missing the infamous Tommy John ligament. R.A. had no idea he had been born handicapped. He took a terrible pay cut â€“ to $75,000. For most of thereafter, he wandered on the fringes. He is finally famous. And still refined. And even more interesting. The knuckleball fits his personality. Alas, he is not as funny quirky as he might be if left-handed. Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is email@example.com.

News from Office of Register Deeds
Commercial transfers fuel real estate market By Sherry Witt The calendar year of 2011 closed with a flurry of real estate activity in Knox County. For the month ending on Friday, Dec. 30, some 603 parcels changed hands, representing a property value of a whopping $249 million. Thatâ€™s more than $100 million ahead of last Decemberâ€™s pace. The total also represents more than twice the value of the total property sold during November, when around Witt $105 million was transferred. While there was no appreciable increase in the number of residential properties sold, activity in the commercial sector was largely responsible for the surge. There was also a noticeable bump in the amount of money loaned against property. During December, real estate lending saw more than $433 million borrowed in Knox County. This number represented about $160 million more than the amount loaned during November. Leading the train of commercial deals was a transaction between Parkside Drive LLC and Hart TC 1-III LLC for property in the Turkey Creek complex. The sale brought more than $130 million. The largest mortgage transaction was for $94.5 million for financing the Turkey Creek sale. The second largest loan document recorded was for $38.3 million on the Proton Therapy Center. Initial analysis of the recording data from 2011 indicates that the year outpaced 2010 in terms of the total value of property sold. For the year 2011, the total value of property sold in the county was $1.87 billion, compared to $1.52 billion in 2010. Hereâ€™s hoping that we all enjoy a blessed, prosperous and happy New Year in 2012. Sherry Witt is Knox County Register of Deeds. Info: 215-2330 or sherry@ knoxrod.org/.

From â€˜the holeâ€™ to the hardwood By Wendy Smith Marco Harris is the student-athlete welfare coordinator for the UT menâ€™s basketball team. He checks attendance by showing up at playersâ€™ classes in a golf cart and has character-building meetings with the team every Sunday. He also teaches the players life skills, like how to tie a tie and balance a checkbook. Heâ€™s good at what he does because heâ€™s passionate about helping kids. He knows how tough it is for young athletes to transition from high-school stardom to college and how important it is for them to be prepared for a life that most likely wonâ€™t include professional sports. â€œThat ball will quit bouncing. After the fourth year, theyâ€™re out into the real world,â€? he says. He also knows what itâ€™s like to navigate the road from an inner-city housing project to a successful career. Harris and his childhood friend coach Cuonzo Martin grew up together on the streets of East St. Louis, Ill. â€œI tell everybody I raised him, but heâ€™d probably tell a different story,â€? he laughs. Without the love of his family, and the mentoring of a teacher, Harris thinks he might have ended up like most of his other friends â€“ on drugs, in jail or dead. Thatâ€™s why heâ€™s willing to share his story to help recruit mentors for Amachi Knoxville, a Knoxville Leadership Foundation program that matches mentors with children whose
parents are in jail. Harris and Martin were raised in â€œthe hole,â€? a nickname for the Norman E. Owens housing project. It was a neighborhood infested with gangs and drugs, yet Harris says he loves it, because it made him who he is today. He was the third child of a single mother, and, at one time, there were 13 family members sharing his threebedroom home. The neighborhood was like a village, he says, and if he did something wrong, he might get a spanking from Martinâ€™s mom and another from his own mother when he got home. Like most of his peers, Harris eventually joined a gang. He made some mistakes, he says, but he didnâ€™t want to let his family down, and that kept him out of serious trouble. He was also influenced by an art teacher, Homer Simmons, who took the time
to see the good in him. The teacher was one of only a few who were willing to tell Harris when he was wrong, in spite of the fact that he was a star on the Lincoln High School basketball team, which won three state titles in a row. Simmons also served as a role model for his students. â€œHe had a house and a Benz, and he was doing everything legal.â€?
It took Harris years to fully realize Simmonsâ€™ impact on his life, but when he did, he gave his former teacher a call. â€œIâ€™m very appreciative of what I have now,â€? he says. â€œIf I could do it all again, Iâ€™d take the same path. Iâ€™ve learned to treat everybody the same and respect everybody.â€? Wendy Smith is Bearden community reporter for Shopper-News.

HEALTH & LIFESTYLES NEWS FROM FORT SANDERS REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER
Injured principal turns tragedy into triumph Knoxville elementary school principal Elisa Luna has launched a fundraising effort to support the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center, where she is receiving outpatient therapy for a spinal cord injury. Luna was critically injured in a February 2010 shooting incident that left her wheelchair bound. She recently shared her amazing progress with local news media and invited the community to help others recover from similar traumatic injuries. â€œI want to give back to the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center. They taught me to drive again and to push my body as far as I could,â€? explains Luna. â€œThey gave me back my life and my independence.â€? Luna is working to raise funds for several pieces of high-tech equipment that could provide additional beneďŹ t to spinal cord injury patients, and others working to overcome debilitating conditions. The equipment being considered includes several new robotic and computerized devices designed to assist patients with movement patterns and facilitateneurologic recovery. SpeciďŹ cally, the equipment includes a robotic gait orthosis with treadmill, an arm exoskeleton orthosis with computerized real-time feedback and a lower extremity functional electrical stimulation device. Her
efforts are appreciated by those at the Center. â€œElisaâ€™s fundraising effort is an inspiring example of turning tragedy to triumph,â€? says Dr. Mary Dillon, director of Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center. â€œWe appreciate her taking the initiative to lead this fundraising effort on our behalf.â€? Since the shooting, Luna has endured multiple surgeries and months of intense physical therapy. She says she was initially told she would never walk again, but, with the help of a Patricia Neal therapist, is now walking with leg braces. â€œI feel extremely fortunate to be where I am today, and I credit a lot of my recovery to the outstanding care delivered by Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center,â€? says Luna. â€œWhen I learned about specialized equipment that could beneďŹ t others facing struggles similar to mine, it seemed only natural to lead an initiative to bring that equipment to Patricia Neal.â€? Named for the late actress Patricia Neal, a Knoxville native and stroke survivor, the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center is a 73-bed facility nationally recognized for its treatment of stroke, spinal cord injuries, traumatic brain injuries, multiple trauma, orthopedics and other neurological conditions. Since its beginning in 1978, more than 30,000 inpatients have come to the Center to begin their recov-

destroyed the home Riley was living in with her previous family. “They wouldn’t allow pets at her family’s new apartment, so they had to give her up,” he said. Hiler just happened to be looking for a dog and stopped by the shelter. The rest is history. When asked what the other employees think about her, assistant manager Eddie Hines said “We all buy her treats. Everybody has to buy her biscuits ’cause she goes through ’em.” Apparently, she helps keep everyone busy during any downtime they may have. Riley’s favorite toys are cardboard boxes and the wooden sticks used to mix paint. “She also cleans every freight truck that comes in,” said Hiler. “She carries pieces of wood out of the trailers from the wooden flats. We’re not talking about small pieces, either. Two-by-fours … you name it.” The next time you see what appears to be a bunch of tough guys running a paint shop, just think about Riley and her friends at Sherwin-Williams. After playing in the warehouse and getting her picture taken for the paper, Riley ran to the door. “Do you need to go potty?” said Hiler, just like any good dad would. If you have a question or comment for Sara, call her at 218-9378 or email her at email@example.com.

Where is Lucy Lou? Grieving dog owner holds onto hope By Betty Bean Nine days before Christmas, Jesi Goodman was getting ready to head up to Scott County to visit her mother. She dropped off her Irish wolfhound, Lucy Lou, at a friend’s home in Karns. Irish wolfhounds are the world’s tallest breed, and Lucy is just too big to fit comfortably in the back seat of Jesi’s car. What happened next has been a waking nightmare for Jesi, who has been confined to a wheelchair since she broke her back in a horrific car accident that killed her 5-year-old daughter, Julian, in April 2010. Lucy, who stands taller than Jesi’s wheelchair and weighs around 120 pounds, has been her constant companion and bodyguard as she has struggled to learn to walk again. “Lucy is just too big to transport in my car, so I left her with a friend, and they didn’t follow my instructions not to open the door without her leash on. Somebody opened the door and she darted out. She was wearing an orange Tennessee collar with a tag and she is microchipped,” Goodman said. “Lucy is my baby and my best friend. Lucy, who turned 3 last week, is blonde with black tips on her fur, shy with

strangers but warms up to women more easily than men and would probably be quick to befriend a child. “She follows every move I make,” Jesi said. “But she was really closer to my daughter than she was to me. She was very protective. She looked for Julian for a long time before she accepted that she wasn’t coming back. … Last year was my first Christmas without Julian, and now this was my first Christmas without both of them. I’m hoping that somebody has her and will understand how important she is to me.” Jesi got Lucy from a Middle Tennessee breeder – one of only two wolfhound breeders in the state – when Lucy was 8 weeks old. “That’s one of the things that worries me – that probably most people won’t even know what kind of dog she

is,” Jesi said. The house from which Lucy escaped is behind the Weigel’s on Oak Ridge Highway in Karns. She was last seen crossing Oak Ridge Highway on Dec. 18. Jesi has distributed flyers, checked the animal shelter and contacted everybody she knows, but hasn’t had any news of Lucy in weeks. She knows that a dog Lucy’s size can cover a lot of ground, so it’s difficult to know where to look for her. But she keeps on hoping. “She’s the highlight of my day, and keeps me happy when I’m in a down mood. And besides that, she’s my guard dog. It’s been really hard without her.” Jesi is offering a $500 reward for Lucy’s return, no questions asked.

Lori Meighan, Aaron’s trainer, encouraged him throughout the process and helped the program’s registered dietitian teach him how to make healthier food choices. Aaron cut his sodium intake in half and lost eight pounds during the same week. Along with the exercise and nutritional sessions included in the program, Aaron also credits a big part of his success to the program’s small group format. “Before, I was never able to motivate myself,” he said. “I had taken classes and walked out after 20 minutes. I could never break a sweat and didn’t know how to go about doing it myself.” As a result of his commitment to achieving his wellness goals, Aaron lost 39 pounds and more than 20 inches from his body measurements during the 12-week program. Aaron also reduced his body mass index, an important formula showing height-to-weight ratio, by almost 20 percent. “We spend so much money on diet pills and magazines,
