Help for Broadway congestion By Sandra Clark A plan to relieve traffic congestion on Broadway at I-640 by improving interstate access from both Broadway and Tazewell Pike was unveiled last Thursday to an undersized crowd at Smithwood Baptist Church. Meeting notification must have been by carrier pigeon. Or perhaps the invites got caught in traffic. “This project is very necessary and will make a huge difference to traffic flow in Fountain City,” said consulting engineer Bob Bowers. Bowers and Kassie Holmes of CDM Smith drafted the preliminary design. Michael Russell is TDOT’s project manager. TDOT Region I Director of Operations Steve Borden attended the forum, along with state Rep. Bill Dunn, who drove in from Nashville, and County Commissioner R. Larry Smith. Borden, Russell, Bowers, Dunn and Smith live in North Knox and are acquainted with the interchange, which has produced 460 accidents in three years. The project will address these problems: Traffic from Tazewell Pike and southbound Broadway now merge into a single lane in a short space to access I-640 westbound. The plan provides two longer lanes onto I-640 and separates Tazewell Pike and Broadway traffic with a wall. Traffic exiting I-640 from the east (Knoxville Center area) to go north on Broadway or Tazewell Pike will have a longer ramp to avoid congestion at Greenway Road. Northbound Broadway traffic to I-640 west will have a big loop for no-stop access. This traffic currently stacks on Broadway to turn left at a traffic signal. Bowers says this left-turn signal contributes to a morning rush hour backup for Broadway traffic heading downtown or to West Knoxville. “Traffic coming south just creeps along. It might back up for an hour, all the way to Panera Bread.” Another resident said the backup is to Fountain City Lake, while another

said McDonald’s. The loop will eliminate the need for signalization, allowing stop-free access to I-640 west for both northbound and southbound Broadway traffic. Smith questioned improvements to the one-lane railroad underpass on Old Broadway. Russell said that’s “outside the scope of this project.” Ron Welch, who owns Greenway Insurance Agency and also lives on Greenway Road, sees no improvement for his neighborhood, saying residents still must turn north on Broadway and find someplace to turn around to come back to I-640. Right-of-way acquisition will come on the Greenway Road side of Broadway, leaving businesses and a blueline stream on Old Broadway untouched. This is Phase II of a project that began in 1996 and included improvements to the I-640 exit ramp to Broadway. Russell estimated the cost of this current improvement at $15 million to $20 million. Dr. Donna Bueckman, a Fountain City resident and UT econom-

She asked engineers to consider the First Creek Greenway Plan and “at least leave space” to prevent I-640 from blocking foot and bike access from Fountain City to downtown. Bueckman supports the improvements, calling the existing road scheme “a disaster waiting to happen,” but she also understands marginal costs and believes making design plans now for pedestrians is important. “Don’t limit our

future choices,” she said. Russell said the plans are not detailed now, but the public forum was intended to take comment. “We will pull the stakeholders together and get in there and work with them.” Russell expects a project website to be up this week, and it will be updated frequently when construction starts. Meanwhile, anyone with concerns or comments should get those on record. Contact TDOT at or phone Mike Russell at 594-2642.

Mabe and Shane to sing at senior center

The Shopper-News’ own Jake Mabe and Emily Shane will be singing at the Super Seniors Luncheon at the Halls Senior Center on Crippen Road at noon Tuesday, April 24. This is only Jake’s third public singing appearance since his halcyon “Elvis days” in the mid-1990s and he needs all the help he can get. He and Emily are promising to sing some gospel, classic country, ballads and, yep, a little “Blue Suede Shoes.” Photo by Ruth White


Second grade students and staff members at Brickey-McCloud Elementary took time from their regular schedule to remember one of their classmates and friends, Josie Fine. Josie was killed in an accident on March 14 and community members showed an outpouring of love for a little girl whose motto was “Live in love.” “Josie planted seeds of love and happiness,” said principal Robbie Norman, “and because of that we wanted to plant seeds to grow in her honor.” Flowers have been placed in the garden – pink flowers which was one of Josie’s favorite colors – and which spell out her name. Through the hard work of committee members Karen Trivette, Cara Marshburn, Jim Dingus and John Dingus, a garden was created at the outdoor classroom on the school grounds. Hallsdale Powell Utility District worked with the school to create the garden and donated the stone to enclose the area. “This garden is a peaceful spot that Josie’s parents and friends can come to think about her and remember her smile,” said Jim Dingus. Dingus’ son Andrew is in the 4th grade at BrickeyMcCloud with Josie’s brother, Corey. He remembers the outpouring of love and support when his own brother died at a young age and wanted to show the same kindness to the Fine family. The Fines were presented with special gifts from their Brickey-McCloud family, including framed pieces of Josie’s artwork, a butterfly

Josie’s 2nd grade teacher Susan Merryman shared memories of their time together. “Remember the little girl always twirling and dancing and that toothless grin, the girl with the vivid imagination who always lived in love.” Merryman’s walk down memory lane brought tears to the eyes of many, followed by laughter and smiles as they remembered a special little girl. To end the celebration, the 2nd grade students sang “Chatter with the Angels,” a song they learned on the day they heard that they had lost a friend. Josie’s father, Kevin, choked back tears as he thanked the school and community for the love

Amber Fine added, “We are blown away by the incredible outpouring of love.” The community that calls Brickey-McCloud Elementary home should know a lot about love. They had the pleasure of knowing a young girl who believed in living her life every day with love and she walked the walk. “Josie was a very special, goodhearted girl,” said Norman. “She was just good.”

Forget cruel, April is the best month Ah, springtime. Yes, it’s my favorite time of the year. And, no, not just because baseball is back. The greens, the blues, the vivid hues … you can have summer, winter or fall. Spring is my season. It’s also a busy time. Last Thursday night alone, I juggled two meetings. First, I spoke to the Halls Middle School National Junior Honor Society. I gave ’em my best pep talk, telling them to master their moment, that their generation will one day have its rendezvous with destiny. I said one of them might discover the cure for cancer or an alternative energy source or become the best darn tuba player in the KSO – or the New York Philharmonic. I told them to find their passion, pursue it and perfect it. I told them to never be afraid to be different and, to use the cliché, think outside the box. And I reminded them of the old saying, “If you get paid for your passion, you’ll never work a

‘Mildred Doyle Remembered’

You may have heard about the book by now, but I just finished reading “Mildred Doyle Remembered,” Benna F.J. van Vuuren’s collection of memories about “Miss Doyle.” Longtime Knox folks will remember Miss Doyle, who served as Knox County’s superintendent of schools from 1946-76. Yes, you read that correctly. Thirty years. I wish I could’ve met her. Everybody

says she was one heck of a woman. Van Vuuren worked for both Miss Doyle and for Doyle’s successor, Halls/ Powell guy Earl Hoffmeister. (As an aside, we hear Earl is recovering from an injury and we wish him well. He’s one-of-a-kind, too, and a longtime family friend.) Van Vuuren says to overlook the mistakes an editor missed. And, you can do that, because the stories are so good. Pay attention to memories from sisters Faye Cox and Doris June Large, Halls’s own Edythe McNabb, Emma Jean Huddleston and Sam Venable. After Miss Doyle died on May 6, 1989, Sandra Clark wrote in the Shopper that Miss Doyle summoned Clark to her office when Clark was running for reelection to the state House. The state had just issued bonds to build several new schools over a three-year period. “While I watched,” Clark wrote, “she dialed someone in Nashville and said, ‘Let’s build Knoxville’s first three vocational schools at Halls, Central and Karns. Yes, that’s where we need them.’ “That’s where we got them.”

Help sought for city projects

Raided by ‘a bunch of thugs’ Retired KPD detective Don Wiser is a veteran of the local political wars. Sometimes he’s up – like the summer of 2010 when he campaigned nonstop for his longtime friend Tim Burchett – and sometimes he’s down, as was mostly the case when he was still a cop and Phil Keith was police chief. But he’s never been quite as down as he’s been since 12:20 p.m. Saturday, April 14, when a bunch of deputies burst Don Wiser through the door of his Halls office and disrupted a DUI/ driver’s safety class he was conducting. They proceeded to confiscate his receipt book, files, composition book, laptop, notebooks, fax machine, folders and a wad of cash and checks while detaining him for an indeterminate period of time. “They came in waving guns and flashing badges hollering ‘Get out! Get out!’ ” Wiser said. “When I started to leave, one of them hollered, ‘Where are you going?’ Then they sat me down in a chair and wouldn’t let me get up. They acted like I was John Dillinger.” Wiser said he started telling people he plans to run for sheriff a few weeks before the raid. Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones’ spokesperson Martha Dooley said there is no incident report on the raid (which could account for no story by any other media). When asked for a response from Jones, she said, “I can neither confirm nor deny that this is under investigation.” Wiser rents space from Commissioner R. Larry Smith in the Birch Tree Plaza. Smith confirmed the raid and said he was contacted by other tenants including the beauty shop next door. “Looks like I’ve lost a tenant,” he said. The warrant indicates that Wiser is accused of giving clients credit for completing more hours of his class than they actually sat through. Wiser says he suspects it has more to do with him spreading the word that he plans to run for sheriff. The warrant alleges he has violated TCA 39-14-

136 (falsifying educational and academic records), a Class A misdemeanor. Nearly two weeks later he hasn’t been charged. His attorney, Bob Jolley, a former lead prosecutor with the district attorney general’s office who before that worked for the state attorney general, says a full-scale raid over a misdemeanor charge is unusual. He smells politics. “I’m not sure this statute is something they can charge him on. What you are talking about is a major police raid on a legitimate business in Knox County where a large amount of money was expended. They closed down a business because of what was seized. Eighteen to 20 officers, some of them narcotics people, plus an assistant district attorney conducting a raid over a misdemeanor?” In recent years, Wiser, who has a bachelor’s degree in criminal justice and a master’s in health and safety education from UT, plus a couple of years at the Nashville night law school and has taught criminal justice at Walters State, has been the sole proprietor of Concepts in Safety. Its website describes its business thusly: “Our sole mission is to provide a much needed service following state law guidelines which states in TCA 55-10-301, C(4), “Each county clerk shall provide a list of approved entities in the county to any person ordered to attend a driver education or improvement course.” Wiser concedes that that he’s not perfect. “Being an ex-policeman, I love policemen. Real policemen. If I’m wrong, I need to answer to the proper authorities, not to a bunch of thugs.”

Budd Cullom wants a $10 million reduction in property taxes for 25 years to develop the old Fulton Bellows site near UT.

Amy Broyles is not sure how she will vote on Cullom’s proposal, saying, “I love brownfield development but hate Walmart.”

Today’s meeting of the Knox County Commission will be about money, and Mayor Tim Burchett hasn’t even presented his budget yet. Expect discussion on the school board’s budget, starting with public forum at 1:45 p.m. and continued discussion (from last week’s workshop) of proposals by two developers to get tax relief in exchange for tackling tough “brownfield” developments inside the city. My prediction is that most public comment will support the school board budget (including remarks by this writer) and both redevelopment requests will pass, although the $10 million TIF for University Commons is a huge frog to swallow. First, you’ve gotta believe that a Walmart will stay in one spot for 25 years (or its empty nest will be taken up by other worthy sales tax generators). Then you’ve got to move county-based commissioners toward supporting a project in the university area. And finally, you’ve got to motivate city-based commissioners such as Amy Broyles to look past the anchor tenants to the overall community benefit. Budd Cullom, developer of University Commons, said neither Publix nor Walmart will get a property

Sandra Clark

tax break. “They will pay property taxes from Day One, but the money will go toward paying back the $10 million TIF. “This site is a tremendous eyesore,” said Commissioner Tony Norman. And Commissioner Dave Wright asked if Cullom plans to “keep the smokestack.” He said yes. Burchett endorsed both projects, a huge boost to obtaining the commission’s OK. Burchett said he and Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero are working together on the University Commons project, estimated to generate 600 construction jobs and 1,100 permanent jobs in retail. Cullom said the project is impossible without the TIF, which will be used to redo two intersections (Kingston Pike and Joe Johnson Blvd.) encapsulate the ground, and build elevated, open air parking to prevent damage from vapors. Cullom said the project would cost his group $25 million less if developed in a greenfield.

The Oakwood School project may pass unanimously. Developers Wayne Blasius and Rick Dover are asking for $712,100 to “get the property back to zero,” as Blasius explained to the commission. He was met with universal praise last week including Burchett’s endorsement. Family Pride Corporation, which operates a similar assisted living project in a former school in Lenoir City, would create 58 assisted living units in the old school to serve the aging community nearby. “It will be cheaper for Knox County to save this building than to tear it down,” Burchett said. Developers will make a $4.5 million investment, Blasius said, creating 35 permanent jobs and a $750,000 annual payroll. “It will be good for the community and good for the taxpayers.” Commissioner Broyles, who represents the district, said she and her husband had discussed moving there later. “They’re taking deposits now,” Burchett joked. Upcoming: The 4th District Democratic Club will host Dr. Joanne Logan, an applied climatologist at UT, at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 24, at the Bearden Branch Library. Info: Lorraine Hart, 637 3293 or 850-6858.

Budget address, y’all come! This Friday, April 27, will mark the 24th annual mayor’s budget message when Mayor Madeline Rogero delivers her first budget address. The first was in 1988. Prior to that, Knoxville mayors simply handed off their budget to a city council workshop. It was a limited audience with minimum notice. When I became mayor in January 1988 I changed that outdated system and converted the budget announcement (which the charter requires the mayor to present to council by May 1) to an address and a State of the City speech. Subsequent mayors have maintained this tradition and the county mayors have now copied it but hold a breakfast meeting. My first budget address was in the Community Room of the Candy Factory at the World’s Fair Park to a much smaller audience than we have today. In fact, the then City Council did not know quite what to make of it as it had never happened before. More than 3,000 invitations to Rogero’s budget address went out. If you are not on the list and want to go, just call the mayor’s of-

fice at 215-2040 as you will be more than welcome. It is, after all, a public event. Eighty tables have been ordered for the event to be held at Victor Ashe Park. There will likely be more than 800 persons in attendance, fewer than the Rogero inaugural but more than the normal budget message. Plan on early arrival by 11:30 for parking and visiting with others. It will be a place to see and be seen. Communications Director Angela Starke tells me that Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis will be the MC and Rabbi Beth Schwartz, the retiring rabbi of Temple Beth El, will give the invocation. Fire Department Captain Scott Warwick will sing the National Anthem, which he did at the American Embassy in Warsaw for two July 4 celebrations when I was Ambassador to Poland. The Knoxville Community Band will perform and the Police De-

partment will provide the honor guard for the flag presentation with Northwest Middle students leading the pledge of allegiance. Each council member will host a table. So if you want to sit with a particular council member look for their table and lock down a seat. If you want a seat close to the podium you need to get there early, too. Judith Foltz, city special events chief, has planned a red, white and blue color theme in gingham. During a 4 year mayoral term, there are really only five speeches a mayor gives which are guaranteed to attract citywide attention. These are the inaugural address and the four budget messages. Rogero gave a well-received inaugural address and now it is time for her first budget given in a very scenic and well -used park. Hopefully, her address will contain substantially more money for trees which have been destroyed on city property as well as greenway expansion as an integral part of a green city. If you have time after the event, you will en-

joy walking the greenway which goes to Northwest Middle School or checking out the lake or frisbee golf course.

In and out of order Some wide receivers are sane Shelley Breeding eligibility case goes to court By Betty Bean The most dramatic moment at Thursday’s Election Commission meeting wasn’t when the Republican-dominated board, on a straight party line vote, moved to ask a judge to determine Democrat Shelley Breeding’s right to run for office in Knox County because her property is bisected by the Knox-Anderson county line and Anderson County collects her property taxes. It came later, during public forum, when former County Commissioner Mark Harmon, a Democrat, asked the commissioners to reopen the vote and do it again without Commissioner Rob McNutt, who has admitted voting illegally on seven occasions. “Your failure to do that harkens back to those horrific days (during County Commission’s notorious ‘Black Wednesday’ era) and stains this county and stains this board,” Harmon said. Board chair Chris Heagerty, an attorney, took offense. “You are completely out of order,” Heagerty said. “(As a citizen speaking to a public body), my comments by definition cannot be out of order,” Harmon snapped back. Commissioner Dennis Francis, a Democrat, echoed Harmon’s request, but Commissioner Bob Bowman, a Republican, said someone on the prevailing side would have to make the motion to recon-

Shelley Breeding is flanked by her attorneys, Jon Cope (left) and Billy Stokes. Photo by Betty Bean sider – “And I’m certainly not going to do that.” “Do I hear a motion from Mr. McNutt?” Harmon asked. “No,” McNutt said. “Then you’ve validated my point,” Harmon said. Election Administrator Cliff Rodgers started the meeting with an explanation of how Breeding’s eligibility came to be questioned. He said that an employee noticed an irregularity in Breeding’s husband’s address when she was verifying the signatures on Breeding’s qualifying petition. He said he “began to gather facts,” and used the KGIS mapping system to determine that Breeding’s house is across the Anderson County line, but said he never told Breeding that she is ineligible to run in Knox County (although he did say he wanted to conclude the matter so she could run in Anderson County, if she wanted to). He recommended that the commission follow state Election Coordinator Mark Goins’ advice and ask for a declaratory judgment to decide the issue, since it is likely to end up in court whatever is decided.

Breeding’s attorney Billy J. Stokes said he believes his client will win in court and cited a 1994 Tennessee annexation case – Committee to Oppose the Annexation of Topside and Louisville Road v. City of Alcoa – which held that “curtilage” (the immediate, enclosed area surrounding a house or dwelling) is the primary factor to be considered in determining jurisdiction. This, he said, is the prevailing law on this issue (Goins relied on a 1931 case). Stokes pointed out that Chief Deputy Law Director David Buuck was the prevailing attorney in this case, and he read from a disclaimer atop the KGIS website warning users not to rely on it for accuracy in determining property boundaries “or placement or location of any map features thereon.” Commissioner Dennis Francis, a Democrat, urged his colleagues to vote on Breeding’s eligibility: “I don’t know why everybody’s passing the buck. Mark Goins didn’t do his job. Let’s vote on it. Why do we have this commission if we’re not going to make any decisions?”

A particular coffee club, fortified by senior discounts, learned to endure mornings without Da’Rick drama. It was a test of patience. One vocal member, fighting off frustration, took remedial action. He broadened the Tennessee discussion considerably by declaring all wide receivers are quirky, spoiled or just plain nuts. He didn’t blame God. He said fans cause it with wild applause. He gave some credit to linebackers and other headhunters who pretend to be nice, little cornerbacks. A good target runs a crisp route, looks back for the ball and somebody drills him in the ribs and tries to break him in half. Or, even worse, he leaps and stretches for an overthrow and comes down with feet up and head stuck in the turf. The hits and threats and celebrations are enough to confuse basic values. The speaker’s point of reference was Terrell Owens. Oh no, said I, please, not T.O. or Randy Moss. There is no Volunteer connection. Going back to when ends were not even split, I said receivers don’t have to be goofy or selfish or even egotistical. Take Lester McClain for example, model citizen, a naturally quiet man who just ran down the field, caught the ball and ran some more. And Larry Seivers, best hands of my lifetime,

catch it if he could touch it, and present it to the nearest official in the end zone. If Larry had been a flamboyant self-promoter, he would be in the Hall of Fame. Johnny Mills was a wee bit different. He thought he was always open and told Dewey Warren as much. He was really open one Saturday against Auburn. Caught 11. Burned Kentucky for 225 yards. Sent a letter to Bill Battle reminding the coach to never take receivers for granted. “We are the ones who made you rich and famous.” Willie Gault was always on the edge of show biz. Stanley Morgan could fly. Donte’ Stallworth averaged 17.6 yards per catch which was borderline spectacular. Kelley Washington developed a cocky reputation. He was older and confident and dubbed himself “The Future” and irritated some teammates by working harder. His numbers were hot, one great season, 64 receptions, 1,010 yards, 256 against LSU. Kippy Brown joined Johnny Majors’s staff in

’83 and helped Tennessee become “Wide Receiver U.” Tim McGee, Alvin Harper and Carl Pickens helped, too. Pickens was different. He had big-game flair – as in 13 catches against Notre Dame. Dearly beloved Peyton Manning and not-tooshabby Tee Martin had a little something to do with creating fortunate wide receivers. Joey Kent: very productive, career 183 receptions for 2,814 yards and 25 touchdowns. Peerless Price: great name, 147 receptions, 2,298 yards, 19 touchdowns, MVP in the national championship game. Marcus Nash: 177 receptions, 2,447 yards, 20 touchdowns. Defining moment was short catch and long run against Auburn for ’97 SEC title. The list of winners is long. Robert Meachem? Two splendid seasons. Cedrick Wilson? Twenty-four touchdowns. Jeremaine Copeland? Everything except blazing speed. I don’t remember any of them being much of a distraction or parlaying a suspension into missed winter workouts as did Da’Rick Rogers. Terrible punishment, something like throwing a bad-boy rabbit into a briar patch. Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is

Malcolm’s Dairyland was a hangout for the Powell High Class of ’62 and others. Photo


Remembering Malcolm’s By Betty Bean For 25 years, Malcolm’s Dairyland served up burgers and fries and hospitality to the Powell community. Malcolm “Mack” Grigsby opened his drive-in restaurant in 1956 in a space on Clinton Highway that he leased from Carl Strange, who had bought it from Red Johnson. Mack nearly worked himself to a nub that first year, but Maxine Grigsby Shirk (Powell High School Class of 1962) says her daddy jumped at the opportunity to have his own place. “We always just called it the Dairyland. A lot of people called it Malcolm’s,” she said. “And far as I know, all he ever did was work in a restaurant. He had the opportunity to open up his own place and the first year he had it, he worked 12-14 hours a day, seven days a week.” After that first hard year, things started going so well that Mack Grigsby opened up two more restaurants – one in the Claxton area, another in Solway. But after awhile it got to be too much and he cut back to just the original Malcolm’s location. Maxine always knew that the restaurant was popular, obviously,

and she figures people were drawn in by the good, well-prepared food (she’s been told that Cardin’s on Asheville Highway is the closest thing to a modern-day Malcolm’s). “They’d be parked there three and four deep after football and basketball games. After a ballgame – it was mayhem. People would drive in there and we would have orders stacked on top of orders – I worked it a little bit – and it would absolutely wear you out. Those kids would come in there and they’d be starved to death, wanting their hamburgers. People would come in with their families, too. On ballgame nights we’d have four curb people trying to get the orders out.” Over the years, however, Maxine has realized that memories of Malcolm’s Dairyland are shared by just about everybody who lived in or visited Powell during that time. “I still have people tell me, ‘I sure would like to have one of those deluxe hamburgers,’ or ‘I sure would love to have one of those hot dogs.’ ” Eventually, a Krystal and a Blue Circle opened up in the neighborhood, and then a Burger King set up shop right across the street. They didn’t cost Mack

Grigsby a minute’s sleep. “None of that seemed to hurt his business,” Maxine said. “He always said the best thing for business was competition. He welcomed competition because he knew his food was better.” There wasn’t much that hurt business at Malcolm’s Dairyland, not even the car bomb that went off there in the mid-60s, blowing up a Lonsdale couple who had just returned from visiting their son in Ohio and stopped in for a bite to eat. “They were pulling out when their car blew up. It killed the woman, but her husband survived and so did their dog. We lived on

Inskip Road then, and it rattled our windows. It was a wonder it didn’t hurt the curb boy who had just taken their tray away,” Maxine said. “The son did it. He was wanting money, and they wouldn’t give it to him.” But finally, it all came to an abrupt end when Mack closed down the restaurant. Closed the store on his and wife Dot’s wedding anniversary – Aug. 3, 1981. “It was a spur of the moment thing,” Maxine said. “He couldn’t get his help to work and he just got tired and closed it up. Mother didn’t even know what was going on.” “He asked a boy to work later that night – he’d cut his fingers – and the boy said he didn’t want to work, so Mack just said ‘I’ll close the doors,’ ” Dot Grigsby said. “Daddy was very independent,” Maxine said. Malcolm Grigsby died in February 2005, after a retirement spent doing things he wanted to do, like taking long walks, going out to dinner with Dot, and baking cakes and decorating them, particularly for family birthdays. Maxine says he’d love what’s happening at the Class of ’62’s 50th reunion, where her classmates will re-create Malcolm’s Dairyland. On Friday, April 27, at Dante Baptist Church, her husband of 51 years, Bill Shirk (who cooked at the restaurant for several years) and Bob York will be fixing hot dogs and hamburgers “As close as they can get to what Daddy served.” (This, of course, will require

getting fresh-ground, never frozen beef just like Mack Grigsby used to get every morning from Norwood Meat Market). Mack Grigsby would be tickled, Maxine said. “He was kind of a private person, didn’t like a lot of attention, but he would be very pleased and honored. And I just never realized that the restaurant would have that big an impact on people who grew up around there. It’s an icon, and for them to honor it at our class reunion is just touching.”

Golden grads plan parties The Powell High Class of 1962 will hold its 50th reunion April 27-28. Festivities begin Friday with a 2 p.m. tour of Powell High School. The group will continue to Dante Baptist Church, 314 Brown Road, for Malcolm’s Dairyland hamburgers with all the fi xings. Saturday’s event will be held at Jubilee Banquet Hall, 1506 Callahan Road, with social hour and class photo at 6 p.m. with dinner and program to follow. Organizers expect 80 to 90 classmates and spouses to attend. Info or to register: Joe Prueitt, 922-9865; Meryl Ann Linkous Houston, 2783326; or Joan Frazier Barker, 938-1269.

Locked doors A week later his disciples were again in the house, and Thomas was with them. Although the doors were shut, Jesus came and stood among them, and said, “Peace be with you.” (John 20: 26 NRSV) Listen! I am standing at the door, knocking; if you hear my voice and open the door, I will come in to you and eat with you, and you with me. (Revelation 3: 20 NRSV) I try really hard to listen to the sermon, for several reasons. First, my pastor’s sermons are worthy: well-prepared, honest, with memorable illustrations. They make me think; they challenge me; they call me out of myself. Second, I sit up front, facing the congregation. If I am not attentive, it is quite evident and sets a bad example. But sometimes, something that is said in a sermon triggers an idea, and my mind is off and running, putting two and two together and coming up with 150! Last Sunday’s sermon (about Jesus’ post-resurrection appearance to the disciples a week after the Resurrection) triggered a new thought. What is it with Jesus and locked doors? John’s Gospel tells us about several post-Resurrection appearances of Jesus: to Mary Magdalene in the garden and then to the disciples (except for Judas who was dead by then, and Thomas

In that instance, John says that “… the doors of the house where the disciples had met were locked for fear of the Jews.” Yet, “Jesus came and stood among them and said, ‘Peace be with you.’ ” (John 20:19-21) He did the same thing again a week later, with Thomas present this time. “Although the doors were shut, Jesus came and stood among them and said, “Peace be with you.” Luke’s account (in Chapter 24) of the encounter on the road to Emmaus ends with the two who had shared a meal with Jesus running back to Jerusalem to share ■ Fountain City UMC, 212 Hotel Road, will have a churchwide rummage sale 8:30 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, May 5, rain or shine.

the good news. Even while they were recounting their amazing experience, Luke says, “Jesus himself stood among them. …” Jesus, who apparently just appeared in the room, later asked, “ ‘Have you anything here to eat?’ They gave him a piece of broiled fish, and he took it and ate in their presence.” (vss. 41b-42) This man, whose death the women and John, at least, had watched, made a point of eating: a very human, very physical, very alive thing to do! And, equally astounding, this very physical Jesus was neither deterred, nor slowed down by locked doors!

Precious daughter, sister, wife, mother and friend. Sadly missed by all. She started the path home many years ago, when Jesus saved her soul. There have been ups and downs along the way, but Jesus has always shown her the right path to go, but now that she’s come to the end of her path, she is standing at the crossing where Jesus has come to take her across to the other side. We know she didn’t want us to cry for her, she is where she longed to be. Her pain and suffering is gone and she has a new body just like Jesus. She tried to tell all her family and friends goodbye for now, and said she’d be waiting on the other side to welcome us when we get there. Until then, we miss her and will forever hold her in our hearts.

Dental Answers Dr. Steven C. Crippen Question: “Often when I first get out of bed in the mornings, my back teeth are very sore, but later in the morning the soreness goes away. Is this unusual and should I be concerned about it?” Answer: The symptoms you have described are very likely a result of what is referred to as “Night Bruxing.” This means, in other words, that you are clenching and gritting your teeth together subconsciously while you sleep. As a result the teeth become hyper-

sensitive and sore. Usually in the early stages, the condition is temporary during the day, lasting usually only a few hours. It is important to have your condition checked by a dentist, since it can develop into more serious problems involving the joints (Temporomandibular Joint) of the lower jaw. Frequently a device called a “Night Guard” can be made for your teeth for wear at night, and many times this will alleviate the problem.

News from Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation (KCDC)

Seniors show green thumbs By Alvin Nance The seniors at Love Tower s have alr e a d y broken out their gardening tools, just in time for Earth Day on April Nance 22. Through a partnership with the Knoxville-Knox County Community Action Committee (CAC) Green Thumb program, many KCDC residents are being provided with their own garden plot, free seeds and fertilizer – a gift that can reap an estimated $350 to $650 worth of produce. Jim Cunningham, CAC community gardens manager, oversees 23 such gardens located throughout Knoxville, more than a dozen of them at KCDC housing sites. Cunningham has been supporting community gardens for more than 20 years. He says the Love Towers residents always do a good job of growing and maintaining their garden. Resident Lenoir Davis said last year she harvested green beans, okra, squash and butter beans, a nutritious supplement to her diet. She’s already harvested some onions this year. The seniors at Love Towers have staked out their plots and prepped the soil for the garden. Now they eagerly await

Jim Cunningham’s delivery of tomato and pepper plants for each community gardener. The tomato plants are a favorite with all the residents. Last year, Brenda Wolfe made fried green tomatoes from her harvest and shared with the other residents and friends at a picnic in the Love Towers courtyard. The community gardens are a beautiful addition to our properties

and provide a healthy social outlet for our residents. I am grateful to Jim Cunningham and CAC for this partnership that helps our residents put nutritious food on the table and enjoy healthy outside activity. Since tomato plants always produce more fruit than the planter expects, I look forward to a lot of free tomatoes this year. Alvin Nance is executive director of KCDC.

cally ironclad business plan. “I think the business environment by itself is so competitive now that you really have to have all your ducks in a row,” he said. But persistence pays off and so does having a trustworthy partner at your side. “(David and I) had every reason to go under multiple times,” Roger said. “I’m a true believer that successes are built on failures.” Roger said that in the face of failure, he and David would put their heads together and work out a plan. Often, the diverse nature of their various businesses was what kept them afloat. It is this diverse expertise that Roger hopes Visionary Horizons can pass along to its customers. “Between the five advisors here, there’s not much that comes up that we haven’t seen in the past,” he said. “But I think our clients rely on us for that.”

The dream of driving comes true thanks to Comprehensive Driving Program at Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center We started slowly, driving in parking lots.â&#x20AC;? Since Jessicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s leg muscles arenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t strong enough to operate the foot pedals in a car, instructor Jenny Pugh taught Jessica to drive using hand controls. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jenny knew exactly what I needed,â&#x20AC;? smiles Jessica. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She wrote a driving â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;prescription,â&#x20AC;&#x2122; if you will, of the kind of hand controls that are right for me. So, now Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m driving.â&#x20AC;? Working with Phoenix Conversion in Knoxville, Jessicaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s van was adapted with hand controls. After completing the driving program, Jessica now has a learnerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s permit and is looking forward to getting her driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even know if I would Jessica Szczygiel is looking forward to getting her driverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license after be able to drive. Oh, my gosh, learning to drive at the Comprehensive Driving Program at Patricia Neal it was exciting to get out on the Rehabilitation Center.

Comprehensive Driving Program at Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center: Gain independence in driving Driving is a joy to millions of Americans. But if a personâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s physical or mental skills have declined with age, illness or disability, driving may not be safe. Before you assume that Mom or Dad needs to hang up the keys, an evaluation at the Comprehensive Driving Program at the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center can help determine whether they should be behind the wheel. The centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s director, Jenny Pugh, is the only Adaptive Driving Rehabilitation Specialist in the Knoxville area and one of just 600 nationwide. Pugh works with about 200 people every year at the Patricia Neal Center. They include those who have had strokes or injuries, seniors whose families are concerned about their driving skills and people with physical or mental disabilities. She begins by evaluating the individualâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vision, hearing, physical strength and range of motion. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re mainly looking at response time visually, physically and cognitively,â&#x20AC;? explains Pugh. She evaluates clients on the road and is honest with them about her ďŹ ndings. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It is sometimes difďŹ cult to tell people they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t drive,â&#x20AC;? says Pugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But on the other hand, if there isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a deďŹ cit, we can show the family theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re ďŹ ne. Just because someoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting older doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t mean they canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t

road! Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s great!â&#x20AC;? exclaims Jessica. Jessica recommends the Comprehensive Driving Program at Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center for anyone who is disabled and wants to learn to drive or someone who has had an accident and stopped driving. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jenny is such a patient, understanding driving instructor,â&#x20AC;? says Jessica. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She helps you reach your full potential.â&#x20AC;? Jessica loves the independence that driving gives her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m deďŹ nitely comfortable driving now, thanks to Jenny,â&#x20AC;? says Jessica. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Once you learn, you donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget it!â&#x20AC;?

When is it time to stop driving? As coordination, eyesight and other skills decline in old age, there may be a time for an elderly person to quit driving. The National Highway TrafďŹ c Safety Administration mentions these warning signs that seniors may no longer be able to drive safely: â&#x2013; Becoming lost when taking a familiar route. â&#x2013;  Appearance of new scratches and dents on the car. â&#x2013;  Getting ticketed for a driving violation. â&#x2013;  Getting into a car accident or having a near-miss. â&#x2013;  Driving too fast or too slowly for no apparent reason. â&#x2013;  Finding that signs and road markings are suddenly overwhelming. â&#x2013;  Having health problems or taking medications that affect driving. â&#x2013;  Receiving a recommendation from a doctor to stop or reduce driving.

drive. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had 93-year-olds pass the tests.â&#x20AC;? After an initial evaluation with the Comprehensive Driving Program, if additional driving rehabilitation therapy is needed to learn to use special equipment, clients pay an hourly rate for individual instruction. There are many types of adaptive driving equipment available to people with physical disabilities, says Pugh. A left foot accelerator, for example, can help a person who canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t use his or her right foot. Hand controls, spinner knobs for one-handed steering, blinker crossovers, mobility ramps, electrical swivel seats and wheelchair mounting systems are

all available to drivers with various disabilities. Pugh can demonstrate the equipment in the Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s sedan and wheelchair-equipped van. She works with clients to determine which equipment is best for each person. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Most equipment is interchangeable in most vehicles,â&#x20AC;? says Pugh. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want people to get the right equipment that is best for their budget and will last. Our clients are excited to get back on the road.â&#x20AC;? For more information about the Comprehensive Driving Program at Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center, call 865-541-2493 or visit

â&#x20AC;&#x153;I deďŹ nitely want my independence, and learning to drive has been a dream of mine,â&#x20AC;? says Jessica Szczygiel of Kingston. Born with spina biďŹ da and bound to a wheelchair, the 25-yearold college student has longed to learn to drive on her own. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I researched how to get a license and was excited to ďŹ nd information online about the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center driving program,â&#x20AC;? explains Jessica. At the Comprehensive Driving Program at Patricia Neal, Jessica was given an evaluation that included cognitive, visual and physical assessments, as well as an onthe-road test. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They tested my vision and knowledge of road signs,â&#x20AC;? remembers Jessica. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When I took my ďŹ rst lesson, I was extremely nervous.
