Water’s on the way for McMillans By Betty Bean

More than three years after the well on the McMillan family farm was contaminated by excavation work on a construction project next door, Alicia McMillan sees relief on the horizon. “We’ve hauled water in gallon jugs for cooking and drinking and brushing our teeth. We’ve been showering and doing our laundry at my in-laws’ house. It’s been really hard,” she said. The water went bad on the morning of May 5, 2009. Her father-inlaw, Charles McMillan, discovered the problem when he turned on the spigot in the lower pasture to water the cattle and found that it was running bright orange. He called Alicia’s brother-in-law James McMillan and told him to bring his camera. They were convinced from the beginning that excavation work on the development next door was the cause of their problems. Alicia is relieved that construction has begun on a waterline to the rambling farmhouse (parts of which are more than 200 years old) where she, husband Mike and their sons Jay and Jesse live. Mike runs McMillan Wildlife Damage Control and specializes in removing and relocating wildlife from business and residential areas. Charles and Betty McMillan and James McMillan have homes on the north side of the 179 acres that the family has worked for seven generations. The McMillans are old school. They have three acres of ambrosia corn divided into three plantings, 3,000 heirloom tomato plants (six

bins,” – smaller ears that aren’t up to Alicia’s exacting standards – to friends and neighbors, particularly to those he thinks might be in need. Charles spends most of his time caring for Betty, who is in ill health. Jay is studying engineering at UT and Jesse is a student at Central High School. The waterline work is being financed with the proceeds of a lawsuit the McMillan family filed against Babelay Farms LLC, Clear Creek Construction LLC, Sharp Contracting Inc, Legends at Oak Grove LLC and Hathaway Construction Inc. The original developer, Victor Jernigan, ran into financial trouble and was no longer involved in the project by the time construction began, but the McMillans, who have seen their farm encircled by residential development, had battled his plan for years in court and at County Commission, to no avail. The Legends of Oak Grove’s website describes the development as a luxury apartment complex whose amenities include a saltwater pool, a dog park, maple cabinetry and faux granite countertops.

When ‘RAGE’ ruled A tribute to Kevin Purdy

In 1992 the Halls High School football team surged to a 12-2 season after posting an average 5-5 record the year before. The difference was a guy named Kevin Purdy and a program called RAGE (Responsible Athletes Getting Education). Kevin passed away July 11 at age 60, and at his celebration of life – an East Tennessee Irish wake in a

Methodist Church – three players from that ’92 team stood to address his family and friends. Ryan Nichols, Brent Shaw and Justin Teague each said Kevin’s influence continues today. Nichols was especially eloquent (paraphrasing here) saying, “Kevin brought unity to our team. He respected us and taught us to respect each other. We are brothers today because of Kevin.” Shaw, now an assistant principal in Georgia with kids of his

own, said, “There’s no telling what might have happened to some of us if Kevin hadn’t been there.” Nichols told Kevin’s kids, twins Sean and Jenna, that they will always have friends in Halls. “We are just a phone call away.” Jenna and Sean, now in their early twenties, were blessed with two good parents. Their mom, Melissa, passed away in 2002. Kevin threw his tremendous energy and passion into raising them as best he could. They stood at his service

as strong witnesses to his success. Sean read from the scripture and told a really funny story about his dad deciding to cut a tree that was growing too close to their home. “Of course, the tree fell wrong and landed on our roof. He had me up there with him and Jenna on a ladder, and he was yelling, ‘Help me here!’ We were maybe 14. I’m still not sure what he wanted us to do.” Jenna read an Irish blessing which ended, “My life’s been full, I’ve savoured much; good times, good friends, a loved one’s touch. Perhaps my time seemed all too brief, don’t shorten yours with undue grief. Be not burdened with tears of sorrow, enjoy the sunshine of the morrow.” Kevin’s sister, Kerry Fitzgerald, came in from Maine for the service. “Kevin always had a personality that was bigger than life,” she said. “He was able to make close connections with people.” Melissa’s mother, Betty Barry, said she and husband Ed were concerned when their quiet, studious daughter brought home the brash and lively Kevin. “They seemed to be complete opposites. As it turned out, we were wrong. No man could have loved her more. And when Ed got sick, Kevin showed his love for us, too. … .” Wait! Did some saint pass by? Hardly.

Forming the SAP Kevin Purdy was at least a “heck-raiser” who lived a rough and tumble life before he met Melissa. Perhaps that’s why he related so well with teenagers – those in trouble and those who loved them. To page A-4



News from Rural/Metro

Weathering the storm By Rob Webb When deadly storms rocked parts of East Tennessee a few weeks ago, Rural/Metro was prepared. I was extremely proud of our Rural/Metro EMS and Fire Department teams that immediately powered into action. Bystanders and a Rural/Metro firefighter saved the life of a child who nearly drowned in a creek in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. A Rural/Metro crew transported the Webb child out of the national park. In another area of the park, 20 individuals were trapped by a large rock slide. Blount and Knox rescue squads, National Park Service and Townsend Fire Department carved a path to the trapped and injured patients using chainsaws. Five patients were transported out of the park. Severe thunderstorms can produce lightning, flash floods, hail and damaging winds, which can be a deadly combination. Americans deal with 10,000 thunderstorms, 1,500 floods and 1,000 tornadoes each year, and we’ve been getting our fair share in East Tennessee this summer. We can’t always predict when severe weather will strike, but you and your family can be prepared when it does. Here are a few tips to stay safe during the storm: ■ Listen and pay attention to weather alerts on radio or television. A severe weather watch alerts you to a potential situation. A severe weather warning signals you to take cover from an imminent storm. ■ Prepare a three-day emergency weather kit for your family. The kit should include nonperishable food and water for three days, a first aid kit, battery operated radio and flashlights, extra batteries, and important telephone numbers and documents. ■ If you can hear thunder, you are also close enough to be struck by lightning. Seek shelter indoors. ■ Avoid taking a bath or shower during a thunderstorm. ■ Unplug electrical appliances and avoid using the telephone during a thunderstorm. ■ Draw blinds and shades over the windows to prevent glass from shattering into the home in case strong winds blow objects into the windows. ■ If caught outside in a severe storm, get to a low-lying, open place that won’t be a danger for flash floods. Get low to the ground, making yourself as small as possible and placing your head between your knees. Do not lie flat on the ground. ■ During a flash flood, do not drive through flooded areas, even if it looks shallow.

With these simple tips, you and your family can safely weather the storms.

Celebrating the rain! By Ruth White Forget the old childhood song that begged the rain to go away and come back another day. Rain is being celebrated in Knoxville and for good reason. Mayor Madeline Rogero stopped by the construction site of a new home that will use rainwater as the primary source of water. Rogero captures rainwater on a smaller

scale and uses it to water her yard and garden at her home. This new home will capture rainwater in three 1,700 gallon tanks and use it on a much larger scale. Denis Rochat with Rainwater Resources showed the harvesting system and commented on the good quality rainwater in the Knoxville area. “We need just two filters (sediment and carbon)

Rainwater Resources president Denis Rochat shows the filter system for rainwater harvesting in a residential setting.

and UV light to make it useable/drinkable.” The home will have a backup source of water (the area utility district) available in case of emergency. Homebuilders Association of Greater Knoxville president Randy Heiden stressed the motto of the HBA as “help,” as in helping community members and helping things get better for the future. “This harvesting system will help with good stormwater management and help with resources.” Rainwater is distilled as it falls from the sky and is

naturally soft, oxygenated and a high quality source of water. Rainwater harvesting can help preserve the water supply. Uses in the residential setting can include household cleaning, toilet flushing, potable water, pool filling and irrigation. There are many commercial uses for rainwater harvesting, including pools, livestock, irrigation, car washes and cooling towers. To learn more about the benefits of rainwater harvesting, visit and begin celebrating the rain.

Sewer rehab project ends By Sandra Clark Hallsdale Powell Utility District commissioners met for about 10 minutes last week. It was a routine meeting. President/CEO Darren Cardwell said several big projects “are wrapping up right now,” including Phase 2B of the Sanitary Sewer Rehab project handled by Insituform Technologies. Commissioners OK’d final payments totaling $769,783 to the company. Cardwell said 26 water meters were set in June and 13 sewer hookups were inspected. HPUD treated 242.7 million gallons of water and 160 million gallons of wastewater. Commissioners appointed Cardwell, Sandy Liford and Kevin Julian to examine nominations for the commission post held by chair Jim Hill. The committee will submit three names to commissioners at the Aug. 13 meeting. Shannon Carey contributed to this report.

Republicans staffing up at new headquarters Local Republicans will tell you they’re more fired up about this year’s elections than any in a long time. From the national level on down to the state legislative races, they say victory is within reach. Leading the pack is Joe Bailey, who heads the Romney for President campaign regionally and, despite very long days and a lot of travel, is having a great time doing it. Bailey tells a story about being over in Sevier County a week or two ago to speak to a Republican club. “I asked if anyone there could tell me how long it was until the end of ‘hope and change.’ This fellow on the front row raised his hand. He knew exactly how many days (until the presidential swearing in ceremony). I couldn’t believe it. Folks are really excited about this election.” Late last week local GOP officials inked a deal on new campaign headquarters at 5410 Kingston Pike in Bearden. Located on the triangle of land across from the Orangery and next to

Anne Hart

the old Cleveland Interiors, the spot is also just west of Ben Atchley Drive, named for the revered Republican legislator. Bailey says the space is perfect for the headquarters. There’s a lobby, lots of office space, room to store candidate materials for volunteers to pick up and of critical importance: plenty of parking space. There will be a grand opening soon at the new headquarters, with candidates and elected officials on hand to meet and greet voters. Candidates will rotate volunteers to staff the office, and in addition, there’s a whole flock of up and coming young Republicans who will be on hand to help. That group is headed by Alexander Waters, who is

People who lived here 20 years ago remember that football team, the Halls guys who liked their beer and fast cars. One night a car flipped with two players inside. No one was hurt, but then-coach Larry Kerr said it was a wake-up call. The coach asked the players if alcohol was a problem. Hands went up. He asked if they wanted help. Every hand was raised. Kerr contacted St. Mary’s, and the hospital sent out a member of its Employee Assistance team, a counselor named Kevin Purdy. Denny Koontz was a senior on that team. “Now don’t go telling people I was taking drugs. I’ve never taken drugs in my life,” he said Friday. “Kevin came in at a time when there were issues at the high school. He had been through it. He had lived the rough life and had come out on the other side.” Koontz said Kevin kept up with the players through college and even afterward. “I talked to him just the other day.” Denny’s dad, Realtor Gary Koontz, headed the committee that raised money to fund a Student Assistance Program at Halls High School. Purdy took a year’s leave of ab-

Clark sence from St. Mary’s and former Superintendent Earl Hoffmeister (whose grandson, Jason, played on the football team) lobbied the school board to allow the program at Halls. “It was easy raising money,” Gary recalled. “Businesses and players’ parents supported it once they knew what was going on. “Denny was a player, but all those boys were like my own,” he said. “The year we went 12-2 we lost to Clinton twice and they went on to play for the state championship. They ran all over us the first game, but we almost had them in the playoffs. Then they ran a reverse and beat us. I still ain’t over that game.” Koontz said Purdy was “very calm and non-judg-

chairing the Romney campaign in Knox County. Waters’ Republican roots go pretty deep in these parts. He’s the grandson of former TVA chair John B. Waters, a staunch Republican. His parents are Beth and John B. Waters III, an attorney. Alexander, a UT law student, has recruited a dynamic group of other UT law students to help. They are Leandra Varney of Johnson City, Sarah Davis and Nigel Vorbrich. “Since we’re all in law school together, we get together and talk about politics. It’s great that we’ll all be working on this campaign,” Waters says. The very articulate young Waters has been making the rounds of Republican groups locally. He was at West Knox Republican Club’s meeting last month and met with the Young Republicans Club last week. He says that over the next few weeks his group will be meeting with volunteers on college and university campuses throughout the region.

“Do we have a problem?” “The SAP program works because it is controlled by students. It’s created a proud new tradition at Halls High School,” Keteyian said. Koontz remembers too. He and Kevin wrote a grant which was approved to start a similar program in every Knox County high school. Sadly, the school board rejected it. SAP folded at Halls High. Coach Kerr moved to Anderson County. The RAGE dissolved and Kevin Purdy went off to join a real estate appraisal firm. On Feb. 5, 1996, this writer wrote to an administrator of Knox County Schools: “If you guys hadn’t killed the federal grant for a real SAP program, (then Superintendent) Allen (Morgan) would be on ‘Good Morning, America’ telling how one school system made a difference for kids, instead of being on Page One of the News Sentinel saying there’s just no way to do it …” Gary Koontz said, “We had this program. It worked. We wanted to put it in all the schools. We got a grant subject to school board approval. And we lost it. “But don’t make this story about politics. It’s about Kevin and what he did for our boys. “I’m proud of every one of them. They’ve all turned out good.”

“We’re going to be recruiting and mentoring young people and building an organization,” he says. There’s no doubt that county GOP Chair Ray Hal Jenkins is fired up. He told a group of voters last week, “In a time of extreme stress and distress generated by the Democratic leadership at the top, it’s gratifying to see Republicans from the top down pull together to reverse the lack of leadership over the last three years at the national level and to further the good leadership we have had in our state. “It is our goal to increase the Republican majority in Nashville, to retain the majority in the U.S. House and to use whatever influence we can to regain the Senate and retake the White House.” Jenkins adds: “I know that’s a mouthful, but I believe we can do it.” Coming up: Ryan Haynes, state representative from the 14th District, will officially kick off his re-election campaign with a reception 6-8 p.m. this Thursday at The Pavilion at Hunter Valley Farm. Mark your calendar for the 44th annual Duncan Family Barbecue. It will be at the Civic Coliseum on Oct. 23.

Today at County Commission By Sandra Clark Commission chair Mike Hammond has invited interim finance director Chris Caldwell to discuss year end numbers at 11:30 a.m. today (July 23) in the Small Assembly Room. The meeting will not be televised. This writer will be there, expecting our story from July 16 to be attacked. Commissioner R. Larry Smith already has said we lack “financial savvy.” We can talk definitions and “cash vs. accrual” all day, but the numbers are what we said. Knox County ended the fiscal year with $17.3 million more revenue collected than was budgeted to spend. Best quote from last week’s commission workshop: Commissioner Mike Brown, apparently firing back at our story “Trainor speaks” from July 16: “I’m fed up with being told we have no right to question where 2/3 of this county’s budget goes. If we’re stepping on somebody’s toes, then they’ve got a problem.” And the thoughtful Dave Wright piped up: “Reading the newspaper this morning, it looks like the school board is calling us out. ... I sat through 19 months of meetings (trying to get Carter Elementary). ... Now the paper is asking why we can’t throw another $17 million at (the school board). That does not set well with me.”

Remembering Concord Boat Dock MALCOLM’S CORNER | Malcolm Shell Concord Marina, as it is now called, offers some great services for sports enthusiasts. Indeed, it probably has more boat slips than Hilton Head’s Harbor Town and South Beach marinas combined. And the size of some of the luxury crafts docked there is impressive. But 60 years ago it was simply known as Concord Boat Dock, and the services provided were small compared to today. There were a few boathouses on the south bank that housed cabin cruisers, but there were never more

than a half dozen. The size of the crafts was much smaller than those moored there today. The largest craft I can remember was the Marta III owned by the Sterchi family, and I can remember thinking how exciting it would be to cruise the lake in such a magnificent boat. Knox County owned the dock and leased it to Bob Burch who was an outdoor enthusiast of some renown. Bob wrote an outdoor column for the Knoxville News Sentinel called “Birchbark,” which always included stories about his

outdoor adventures and offered advice on good fishing spots and current lures and bait that were bringing in the big ones. He knew every person who docked their boat there including those who rented boats daily. He always had time to converse with his paying customers, including a 14-year-old kid who only had 50 cents in his pocket. Another icon on the property was “Red” Moore. Red worked as Bob’s assistant and where Bob’s stories left off, Red’s continued in an embellished version. I never knew Red’s

Recruiting near and far Derek Dooley is trapped between a rock and a hard place. If a Tennessee prep star (think Jalen Ramsey) escapes the recruiting net and flies afar, fans wonder how in the world a coach, with so many home-court advantages, could lose such a great talent. Dooley is obviously asleep at the wheel. He should own the state. This is Tennessee! Youngsters, following fathers and grandfathers, uncles and more than a few aunts, grow up rooting for the Vols. They get little orange 18 jerseys as

birthday gifts. They may not carry a tune but they know the words to “Rocky Top.” They fantasize about checkerboards and “give him six!” As long-ago coach Ray Trail once told Winchester linebacker Phillip Fulmer, “You are a Tennessee boy. If you go to Alabama, you are still from Tennessee. If

anything good is ever going to happen to you in football, it is going to happen at the University of Tennessee.” Amen, brother Ray, right on. Alas and alas, if Dooley awards too many scholarships to in-state prep stars who may have Southeastern Conference potential, fans say he is taking the easy way out. He should be seeking and signing the best in America, not the kid next door to save travel time and costs. Who the heck did Dooley beat to get Cody Blanc or Devrin Young? But, but, but you say,

real name and I doubt many of the customers did either, but his reputation for entertaining the clientele with his tall tales was legendary. As part of the facility’s rustic décor, a large boa’s skin was displayed over the stone fireplace. I once overheard a conversation Red was having with a customer who inquired about the skin. Red informed him that he was there when the reptile was killed. When the customer told Reed that boas were only found in tropical climates, Red said, “Well, this one crawled a long way. You can tell by how its underside was worn.” On Saturday nights, there was often entertainment provided by a local rock band, and teenagers would dance to live music. Beer was not served in the park, and even if it had been, Bob would not have allowed the kids to drink on the premises. So, par-

ents felt secure in allowing their kids to attend the events. One particular band was the Guy Brothers, talented musicians and vocalists. I never followed their career, but their talent with the proper promotion was sufficient to propel them into national prominence. Today, the hill just east of the marina is the site of the fine restaurant Lakeside Tavern, which is not only a purveyor of fine food but also offers panoramic views of historic Concord Village. But 60 years ago, it was the site of a large picnic pavilion with a stone fireplace and several stone grills. It was the preferred site for family gatherings, church picnics and civic club events. Reservations often had to be made several months in advance. The park closed at 9 p.m., and since the lights went off, most people vacated the pavilion shortly

thereafter. Then it became the favorite site for lovers, who waited patiently nearby until the last car left. The park was patrolled by county officers who were charged with keeping the sites cleared after closing, but the law was not strictly enforced. Perhaps these officers remembered their youth when they were more amorous and also looked for such smooching spots. I still visit the boat dock occasionally, not to rent a boat or pay a slip fee, but just to stare at a certain spot where a band once performed, where kids laughed and where the stresses of life in the 21st century were not yet experienced or even envisioned. It’s not that I don’t enjoy the new, modern facilities, it’s just that I look at them with a different perspective, one that someone who was there 60 years ago would understand.

home-grown boys love the Vols and will give their all for Tennessee. Dick Williams from Greeneville and Hal Wantland from Columbia and Bill Young from Knoxville South were great captains because they really, really cared. Al Wilson from Jackson? He still bleeds orange. Three named Majors from Huntland or Sewanee? They gave a lot. Curt Watson, Crossville? Fearless, absolutely fearless. Bill Bates from Farragut? Heart and soul. Lester McClain from Nashville? Courage of a champion. Bowden Wyatt, Kingston? Forever a Vol. Hmmm, we’ll think about that. I have thought.

Condredge Holloway came from Huntsville, Ala. He cared, did he ever! Gordon Polofsky somehow found Tennessee from Cranston, R.I. He was blood and guts. Richmond Flowers? Montgomery, Ala., heart of a lion. Stanley Morgan, Easley, S.C.? Any challenge, no limits, lay it on the line. John Michels, Philadelphia, whatever it takes. Steve Kiner, Tampa, oh my. George Cafego, Scarbro, W.Va. Steve DeLong, Norfolk, Va. You get the idea? The numbers game, quality and quantity, dictates that Dooley must recruit near and far. Near is better if other aspects are equal. It is best if Tennessee can attract top talent from

within a 200-mile radius. Makes life easier and less expensive for interested relatives and girlfriends. What really matters is recruiting players who can play, blockers, runners, throwers, catchers, hitters, speed, strength, smarts, good people who don’t cause nightmares, Vols you want to keep for life. It doesn’t matter too much who they are or where they come from … Ackermann from Chamblee, Ga., Mills from Elizabethton, Reynolds from Cincinnati, Henderson from Nashville, Warren from Savannah, Stratton from Tellico Plains, Haslam from St. Pete.

Don’t mess with Detroit DETROIT – The best vacation I have ever taken was to Detroit. Wait a minute, now. Before you start laughing or thinking I have misplaced my marbles, hear me out. I have been vacationing in Motown for 13 years, give or take a summer or two. Friends David and Jennifer, employees at Wayne State University, live in nearby Ferndale. I first went to Detroit to see the baseball team play the year Tiger Stadium closed. (By the way, I don’t care how cool Comerica Park, the new field, may be – and it is cool – it will never match the magic of the long-gone cathedral at The Corner, the intersection of Michigan and Trumbull where Tiger Stadium once stood.) My favorite trip was in August 2007. We had hit a streak of 100-degree days in Knox Vegas, not unlike last month. When I left Knoxville early that Sunday, the temperature was already 97 degrees. When I landed at the Detroit airport, it was 73. It was a perfect getaway because the Tigers won and the temperature was temperate and Maryville’s own Robinella sang like an angel at The Ark in Ann Arbor. Wife Jennifer and I were in Michigan a few days ago. We went to the 13th annual Michigan ElvisFest in Ypsilanti, near Ann Arbor. OK, I gotta be honest. Even though I am a huge Elvis fan, I didn’t want to go to the festival. I was afraid it was going to be kitschy and tacky, a freak-show parade of Elvis impersonators sweating too much and singing with too much vibrato. Nope. Class affair. Top talent. Great time.

The highlight of the festival was Robert Washington. Robert is a former Marine and lifelong Elvis fan. He got the news about The King’s death while in boot camp. Robert has one of the best Elvis voices I’ve ever heard. Maybe the best I’ve ever heard. He came in second place for three years at the Images of Elvis World Championship, sort of a World Series for Elvis impersonators, in Memphis. Guess why he didn’t win? He happens to be African American. Never mind that when Dewey Phillips started playing Elvis’ recording of “That’s All Right” on Memphis radio in 1954 most listeners thought he was black. Never mind that Washington blew away his competition. He came in second. Three times. He has finally won, I am proud to report. Look him up on YouTube. After the Elvis insanity, we drove to downtown Detroit. We went to see “Ernie” at The City Theatre. It is a hit play written by popular author/columnist Mitch Albom about longtime Detroit Tigers broadcaster Ernie Harwell. Ernie died in 2010. He left behind a hole the size of his huge heart. Ernie is the only broadcaster in baseball history traded from one baseball team to another for a player. His velvet voice became the summer soundtrack for millions of Michiganders (and a few Detroit Tigers refugees elsewhere in America). When I tell this tale, people ask all the time if I am scared to hang out in downtown Detroit after dark. I say no. It’s like any

The City Theatre’s marquee in downtown Detroit advertises “Ernie,” a play based on the life of the popular Detroit Tigers broadcaster Ernie Harwell, who died in 2010. The play was written by popular author and columnist Mitch Albom.

other city in America. You don’t go to certain sections at night. (And for the record, the most frightening experience I ever had involving an exchange with a disreputable character happened not in Detroit, but at the Walgreens in Fountain City.) Does Motown have problems? Absolutely. But, it is as American as, oh, say, the Ford and General Motors plants I passed on the interstate. Let’s lose the stereotype. Don’t mess with Detroit.

Parent’s Day Out NOW


AGES TODDLER TO 4 YEARS Tuesday and Thursday


Prayer before praying He was praying in a certain place, and after he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Lord, teach us to pray, as John taught his disciples.” - Luke 11: 1 NRSV The Father who created me With eye benign beholdeth me; The Son who dearly purchased me With eye divine enfoldeth me; The Spirit who so altered me With eye refining holdeth me; In friendliness and love the Three Behold me when I bend the knee. “Before Prayer,” Poems of the Western Highlanders, G.R.D. McLean Prayer is a mystery in and of itself. What it means, how it works, how it varies from circumstance to circumstance (not to mention voice to voice)—all of these factors are as many and varied as the words that are used. Prayer varies from country to country (and from dinner table to dinner table). There lives in my family’s lore a prayer that was used by a distant relative, whose name, I promise you, was Gideon. There are other stories about him that were colorful and oft-quoted, but he was best remembered for his prayer (and his fondness for the bottle). If Uncle Giddy (as he was known) was present at table, he was always asked to return thanks, because he was, as they say, a “jake-leg” preacher, which meant that he had no formal training: he just “took up” preaching. And he always prayed the same prayer. Always. Word for word. The. Same. Prayer. Reports are that it was beautiful, eloquent, and covered all the necessary elements of a prayer. There were family members who could quote it verbatim; Uncle Giddy liked to eat at my grandmother’s table, so they heard it often. By the time I was old enough to hear and truly appreciate the story, all those who could quote the whole thing were gone. The only part of it that I still remember is a perfectly lovely phrase: “Pardon and pass by our many sins.”

CROSS CURRENTS Nothing wrong with that at all. The rub came the time my uncle, who had grown up hearing his Uncle Giddy’s prayers, was asked to return thanks at a rather fashionable dinner party. He went absolutely blank—except for Uncle Giddy’s prayer. It was all he could think of, and so he launched into it, utterly terrified that he was going to burst into hysterical laughter at any moment. I remember another time everyone actually did burst into laughter. I was a young mother, living in New Jersey, and had flown here with my little ones for a visit with family. I was scurrying around helping with dinner, getting the girls cleaned up from their afternoon of play before the other guests arrived for the meal. Two minutes before we were ready to be seated around the table, there was a need for a diaper change. Mission accomplished, hands washed, I sat back down at the table, took a deep breath, and Mother called on me to return thanks over the meal. I bowed my head and offered, “Lord, thank you for times we are not bored.” There were snickers, but no one actually guffawed until after the “Amen.”

Powell Playhouse kicks off new season


Gospel concert is Aug. 11 By Betty Bean Nita Buell Black loves discovering new talent. A l w a y s has, really, which is a big part of the reason she was a teacher. Now that she’s retired, and Black talent is no longer delivered to her classroom, sometimes she has to go looking for it. And sometimes it appears unbidden, when she’s looking for something else. That’s what happened last year when she was out selling advertising for her Powell Playhouse playbill. She was cold calling on Clinton Highway businesses and stopped at Backyard Creations, a locally-owned business where they sell custom-made gazebos, play sets and such, owned by Stacy and David Douglas. “I thought they might want to take an ad and while we were selling it to him, David said he liked gospel music. I said ‘We’ll call on you sometime.’ ” As she talked to them, Black was surprised to learn that not only does David Douglas like gospel music, he and Stacy write, arrange and perform it, too, and play a variety of instruments at Carroll Hollow Baptist Church in Clinton. “They sing some of the very old traditional songs accompanied by fiddle, mandolin and a bass backup.” Black has a special interest in gospel music and for the second year in a row is reserving an evening in the Powell Playhouse schedule for a gospel show called “Singing in the Neighbor-

hood.” Last year’s show was scheduled for December, and the lineup was set when she met the Douglases, but she kept them in mind for this year’s show. The gospel show is set for 7:30 Saturday, Aug. 11, at Jubilee Banquet Facility on Callahan Road. Tickets are $10 and may be purchased at the door. Other outstanding singers on the program will be Grateful Heart, a quartet from Sharon Baptist Church; soloists Gerald Satterfield, Diane Oliver and Bryan Yow; and the men’s quartet from Powell United Methodist Church. Later in the season, Black will collaborate with one of her former students, Halls High School drama teacher Kim Hurst, who will cast and direct her students in “Puss and

Boots,” and next April they will bring the production to the Powell Playhouse. “We will help them any way we can,” Black said. The rest of the schedule will include “Arsenic and Old Lace” in October, an arts and crafts show in November, a comedy night in January, “Are We Listening – the Diary of Adam and Eve; I Can’t Hear You” and “The Odd Couple” in June. Black, a 1955 Powell High School graduate, founded the Powell Playhouse in 1972 when a group of her best students wanted to do a summer play. She revived it after her retirement in 2005. She says it still inspires her. “I love finding talent. It just blows my mind. Thrills me to death.”

Hallsdale-Powell Utility District (HPUD) is now accepting applications for possible nomination as a member of the HPUD Board of Commissioners. HPUD’s Board of Commissioners is comprised of three commissioners, who are each appointed by the Knox County Mayor for a staggered four-year term from a list of three nominees selected by the current HPUD Board of Commissioners. HPUD’s Board of Commissioners is vested with the general power and authority over the utility district, which is managed and operated on a day-to-day basis by the utility district’s president/chief executive officer and who has responsibility and oversight for the utility district’s employees and operations. Besides selecting the utility district’s president/chief executive officer, duties of the HPUD Board of Commissioners include attending all regular monthly meetings and, when called, special meetings of the HPUD Board of Commissioners, adopting an annual budget for the utility district’s operations, setting all rates for water and wastewater services provided by the utility district, and establishing and approving all rules, regulations, policies and procedures necessary for the utility district’s operations. An HPUD Commissioner must also attend a minimum number of certified training hours during his or her appointed term as required by state law. HPUD is one of Tennessee’s largest utility districts, which are treated as governmental entities under state law. HPUD serves water and wastewater service to over 29,075 customers in the north Knox County area (including portions of Union County and Anderson County) with an operating budget in excess of $29.1 million for its most recent fiscal year and a current capital budget in excess of $12.8 million. To apply for possible nomination to the HPUD Board of Commissioners, you must be at least 25 years old and either an HPUD customer within the district’s boundaries or reside within the utility district’s boundaries. Applications for possible nomination to the HPUD Board of Commissioners may be obtained at HPUD’s main office at 3745 Cunningham Rd Knoxville, Tennessee 37918; by calling HPUD at 865-922-7547; on HPUD’s web site; or by fax request at 865-922-8428.

Our government at work By Elizabeth Longmire Last week the interns went on a very special adventure and met some very special people. The first stop was the City County Building to watch Judge Dale Workman in the courtroom. We saw the whole trial process with the jury, judge and attorneys. (Editor’s note: An attorney from the law firm with the slogan “We’ll turn your wreck into a check” represented the plaintiff. On Friday, we learned the trial lasted until 4:30 and the female plaintiff was awarded $8,000; the man zero.) After leaving the courtroom, we ventured upstairs. Little did we know that County Mayor Tim Burchett would invite us into his office to chat and ask questions. What an opportunity! Burchett was hilarious and such a normal guy. He made sure we were all comfortable and having a good time. (Editor’s note: Burchett showed us some shrapnel he had found with his metal detector, a mayoral hobby. “It’s cheaper than a psychiatrist,” he said.) After pictures with the mayor we headed out for lunch at The Lunchbox where we met up with Judge Workman and Judge Wheeler Rosenbalm to talk about the tricks of the courtroom trade



and studying the law. It was great to get insight from two men who know so much and are so passionate about their jobs. (Editor’s note: Judge Workman gestured around The Lunchbox, booming, “This place is packed with lawyers! Over there are the medical malpractice ones, and over by the door are some business lawyers, and back here are some criminal defense lawyers.” Everyone discretely ignored the judge except one of the malpractice guys. When Workman pointed to his group, the attorney grinned and waved to the interns.) Saying goodbye to the judges, we headed down to the Richard L. Bean Juvenile Detention Center for a tour from Richard Bean himself. Before the tour began, we met with Judge Tim Irwin in the Juvenile Courtroom adjacent to the Detention Center. He explained his job and the statistics about the cen-

ter. The Detention Center holds on average 120 kids from the ages of 12-17. During a usual two- to three-day stay, the judge said, “The goal is to straighten out kids by the age of 18.” Fewer kids have been coming in to the detention center over the years, which is a thrill. Irwin is so passionate about his job he said, “I even like it better than my 14 years in the NFL.” (Editor’s note: Judge Irwin told intern Mitchell Kolinsky he knew his grandfather, Frank Kolinsky, a former UT Vol tackle who passed away in 2011.) Every time a kid comes into court, the Judge asks, “Have you been treated OK?” He hasn’t heard the answer “no” in his six years on the bench. He says, “I promise you, you are going to see the nicest kiddy-jail in the land.” His final, encouraging words were, “This is the ultimate court for second chances.” After pictures with the judge, we headed on the tour with Bean, a man equally passionate about his job. He arrives at work at 5 a.m. and stays until 5 p.m. almost every day. We have wonderful people running Knox County. From the judges to the mayor, Knox County is run by people who just can’t be beat.

The ultimate court of second chances By Madeline Lonas Eight kids walk into Juvenile Court, how many walk out? Hopefully, if it’s the Shopper-News interns, all of them do. Last week the interns went to Juvenile Court and met Judge Tim Irwin and Richard Bean, superintendent at the Richard L. Bean Juvenile Detention Facility. The facility is a nice place A view of the rooms (pods) inside the juvenile detention center. The pods are separated into to visit and it’s very well four areas and feature a common area for television viewing. kept, but I would never want to be sent there. Judge Irwin, assisted by seven magistrates, presides over the hearings for accused juvenile offenders and determines their fate. Judge Tim Irwin presides Children can be sent to over cases in the juvenile the detention center if they court and tries to give each commit a petty crime, such defendant a second chance. as shoplifting or unruly behavior, or huge crimes like murder or rape. The state of Tennessee requires children from ages 6-18 to attend school. If a child has a high absentee rate or if the parents are neglectful about the child’s attendance, both will be sent to court. The state will take custody if the parents fail

to deliver their children to school. The judge said about 750 children are in state custody for various reasons. The prescription drug epidemic is keeping the juvenile court busy and accounts for the majority of new cases, he said. Judge Irwin cares deeply about children. He wants kids to know he is there to help them, not hurt them. (Editor’s note: We once spotted Judge Irwin wearing jeans at graduation of the Paul Kelley Volunteer Academy in Knoxville Center mall, another place for second chances. He said “one of mine is graduating.”) Richard Bean gave us a tour of the detention facility. He told us that 80 boys and 40 girls are housed currently in separate parts of the facility. Usually children stay for two or three days, but Bean had one stay almost three years. She left with “boxes of crafts,” he said. When kids are admitted, they get a shower and a change of clothes (boys wear orange, girls wear blue). The child also gets a

health check. A nurse works at the facility daily and a physician visits each Friday. The day begins at 6 a.m. with reveille. Everyone attends school for seven hours. The kids can watch one hour of television, but only if they behave. Surprisingly, there is a variety of choices of TV channels from which to choose. Weekend activities include books from a wellstocked library. Like the detention center for adults, this juvenile center has animals: goats for the boys and rabbits for the girls. Animals provide companionship and are very good listeners. And the goats have the added benefit of eating grass. Employees are dedicated to the kids. The facility is not a place full of criminals, but a place full of children who deserve second chances. They are kids and kids make mistakes; that is what makes them human. This is why Judge Irwin calls this detention center the ultimate court of second chances.

Chill Zavadil pets a goat at the juvenile detention center. The goats provide stress relief and a listening ear when residents at the center have a problem or just need to talk.

Dental Answers Dr. Steven C. Crippen Question: “Do all wisdom teeth have to be removed at some time, and does everyone have wisdom teeth?” Answer: There are many problems that can develop in regard to an individual's "wisdom teeth" or third molar teeth. Most often problems result due to a lack of space for the "wisdom teeth to erupt through the gums. If adequate space is present for the teeth to move into proper position, there is usually no need for removal.

All four of the "wisdom teeth" do not develop in some people, and one, two, three, or none may be present. If you are concerned about your "wisdom teeth", we can determine by x-rays and clinical examination if any treatment is necessary. Questions for “Dental Answers” are welcomed and should be sent to our address at 7409 Temple Acres Drive, Knoxville, TN, 37938.

Rodeo at Red Gate

By Cindy Taylor Thank goodness it wasn’t quite the “mud-stomping” experience it has been in some of the past years, which helped make the Red Gate Festival and Rodeo one of the best yet. Rodeo goers in the stands could watch experts in bull riding, bronco riding, calf roping, team roping, bareback riding and barrel racing in a carnival-like atmosphere. If you weren’t up for watching the living, breathing animals, there was a mechanical bull available for riding, but that wasn’t neces-

sarily any easier. Butch and Terri Butcher did an excellent job of bringing family fun to Union County for the ninth run while giving cowboys and cowgirls an opportunity to vie for the big prize. The rain held off for the most part so contestants and visitors had a great opportunity to enjoy both nights of the rodeo. Musician Greylan James headlined the event and there were nightly live musical performances featuring talented regional artists. A talent search contest con-

Lee Elsworth is first up for the calf roping. cluded on Saturday night with prizes awarded to the top four finalists. Katelyn Parker won the talent show, followed by Autumn Arsenault, second; Piper Smith, third; and Victoria Welker, fourth. Carnival rides were available along with pony rides and numerous food vendors. The Red Gate Rodeo is an annual festival that draws folks from Union and many surrounding counties.

A legacy of art By Cindy Taylor Many artists are born, but ask Union County native Rocky Loy about his talent and he will tell you that working wood into art was not something he ever intended to do with his life. “My dad started a woodworking shop and he had me and my brothers helping him,” said Loy. “It always just seemed boring to me as a teenager.” But boring or not, when Loy’s father passed away he left his wood shop to Loy. Loy says his wife, Brenda, has been instrumental in helping him achieve his art. “My wife encouraged me

DOWN-home UPdate and none of this would have happened without her. Since my dad left me the shop, I just went down there one day and started playing around,” said Loy. “I found out it was a great stress reliever.” Loy says that he has fallen in love with his craft and when he is working in wood the world goes away. Loy often works large pieces from

Snakes in the library

new wood and then distresses and paints them to look aged. He likes to say that he is a maker of brand new antiques. His first piece was a china hutch, but his favorite piece, and one that has sold very well, is his original interpretation of the American flag. Loy fashioned the flag in honor of his son who joined the Army, and every portion of the piece symbolizes a part of America. The flag is made of roughcut lumber to represent that America was cut out of the wilderness. The red and white stripes have waves to represent the ups and downs America has endured as a nation. The blue square is made from barn wood to show that although America is worn and torn we are still viable,

useful and still standing, just like our old barns. Loy has painted three stars in the blue square to represent the Trinity of the Father, the Son and the Holy Ghost – the freedom of religion principles on which America was founded. “I put a nail in each star to represent what Christ did for us on the cross,” said Loy. Loy also builds rollback swings, Adirondack chairs and picnic tables. Much of his work is available for purchase at the Union County Arts Cooperative. Loy has named his shop Bishop Taylor Mountain Crafts after his dad, Bishop Taylor Loy, from whom Loy says he inherited all of his talent. So like it or not he must admit, he was born to it.

By Cindy Taylor First it was snakes on a plane that gave people the creepy crawlies. Now it’s snakes in the library. But the more than 70 kids who saw the snakes didn’t seem at all unhappy to be close to them. Seasonal Interpretive Ranger Kristin Moore from Norris Dam State Park brought two of her “pets” from the park office to meet the kids at Maynardville Public Library on July 13. Fortunately bad luck did not prevail and Friday the 13th was proven to be just like any other day. Well, except that there were snakes in the library. Kids who chose to could pet a snake named Sappy, a northern pine snake, who stayed in the arms of Ranger Kristin. Charlie,

Ranger Kristin brings Charlie the Corn Snake out of his sack. a corn snake, was happier not being touched. Kids learned about the venomous snakes we have in our neck of the woods (the timber rattler and

the copperhead) and how snakes live and eat. Snake day proved to be the most popular library fun day so far with no child wanting to go home.

Sappy, a northern pine snake, loves to crawl around on Ranger Kristin’s shoulders.

Advances in sleep treatment can help YOU stop snoring There’s never been a better time to get a good night’s rest, according to Scott Vogt, director of the Fort Sanders Sleep Disorders Center. With the latest in sleep disorder treatments, your sleep problems – especially loud snoring – can be cured, says Vogt. “Snoring is not normal,” he explains. “Snoring happens because there’s something obstructing your airway at night.” Loud snoring is often caused by a common condition called obstructive sleep apnea. This is when a person’s airway relaxes during sleep and narrows. As the person tries to breathe, the air must squeeze through the narrow opening, causing the snoring rattle. If the airway closes completely, the patient will stop breathing for a second and gasp for air. This can happen hundreds of times each night, preventing the person from getting into a deep state of sleep. During the day, the sleep apnea sufferer often has headaches, mental distraction and fatigue.

Lighter tubing helps reduce the pull of the tube on the sleeper’s face. “It’s easier than ever to find one that’s comfortable for you, and that makes you want to use it more. If a patient won’t use the CPAP, it’s not doing them any good,” states Vogt. “It’s like having a bottle of medication and not taking them.” Some people need to try several masks before they find the one that works for them, Vogt says. “It might take a few days to get the right one.

Insomnia is a common condition in which a person has trouble falling asleep or staying asleep. It affects 1 in 3 adults occasionally, and 1 in 10 adults frequently, according to the National Heart, Lung and Blood Institute. Odd work hours, long distance travel, stress, depression, certain medical conditions or medications and a lack of exercise can all increase your risk for insomnia. Here are some tips to help you fall and stay asleep: ■ Avoid caffeine, tobacco and other stimulants at least eight hours before bedtime. Avoid alcohol z as well. While it may make you sleepy, it tends to trigger light sleep. ■ Avoid medications that can disrupt sleep (some cold and allergy medications, for example). ■ Maintain good bedtime habits. Read a book, listen to soothing music or wind down by taking a warm bath. ■ Exercise early in the day, at least five or six hours before going to bed. z ■ Don’t eat or drink before bed. ■ Don’t watch TV or work on a computer right before bedtime. ■ Make sure your bed is comfortable and the room is dark and quiet. ■ Have pets and children sleep elsewhere. If insomnia persists, talk to your doctor about having a sleep study. An accurate diagnosis of your sleep problems can lead to proper treatment and a good night’s sleep.





National Moth Week is July 23-29 With HealthSpring,

I now have the advantage of going just a little bit further.

Why moths? With more than 10,000 species in North American alone, moths offer endless options for study, education, photography and fun. Moths can be found everywhere, and their diverse sizes and patterns are very interesting.

Theresa Edwards

Finding moths can be as easy as turning on the porch light after dark, since most moths are nocturnal. “Moth nights� are often held by nature groups, providing an opportunity for an introduction to the creatures or a venue for more serious pursuits. National Moth Week brings together those interested in moths to celebrate these amazing insects. Groups from across the country will gather looking for moths and sharing their findings. Getting involved is easy. If there is not a local event to attend, start one with neighbors and friends. Set up a light in your own backyard and see what you find.
