Just as the new school year begins, County Mayor Tim Burchett celebrates his first year in office. What “marks” has the mayor earned since last September? Geography: Burchett may be the most peripatetic mayor in Knox County history. His community conferences regularly take him around the county on listening tours. He has been criticized for sometimes forgetting that the city of Knoxville is part of the county, at least during budget preparation, and some would say he’s more familiar with Carter than Farragut. But those are largely political issues rather than intellectual shortcomings. C+ Math: A good teacher is essential to excelling in this subject. John Troyer is a first rate financial guru, and Troyer guided the mayor through an inaugural budget that included a plan to shave the county’s debt by $100 million over five years. Give the mayor a B. Communication Skills: The mayor excels in one-on-one situations. He’s personable and given to plain talk. Early on there was some serious miscommunication about the severance package deal former Mayor Mike

Tim Burchett File Photo Ragsdale engineered for three departing senior staff members. That faux pas hurt Burchett’s credibility out of the gate and lowers his grade to a C. Civics: This is a tough one. The mayor’s stand on Carter Elementary School is not one you would expect a veteran politician to take. Investing loads of political capital in a project to help one community when other parts of the county need help could come back to haunt the mayor in a few years. But Burchett will tell you he has a soft spot for the underdog, and while that may not be characteristic of an ambitious politician, it isn’t a trait to be scorned. BIt’s only fair to ask the mayor for his take on his

first year in office. We posed several questions. Q: Would you do anything differently? A: “I never even think about stuff that way. … Lots of times it’s not how you start but how you finish.” Q: What’s the most surprising thing you’ve learned since taking office? A: “I really didn’t have that many surprises.” Burchett added he had to be careful not to get too insulated from his constituents. Q: What’s been your greatest challenge? A: “This Carter thing has been a real challenge. … We’ve had so many roadblocks. … But I don’t have time to sit and feel sorry for myself.” Q; What’s the most enjoyable aspect of the job? A: “I enjoy just getting out and meeting folks. (When you’re talking to someone) right then, that’s the most important thing in that person’s life.” Burchett gave himself a “solid C” for his first year in office and said he tries to do “a little better every day.” He said he spends time every morning in his office thinking and praying about the work ahead. Despite the challenges, he confesses his life could be worse: “Nearly every day is gravy on all-biscuit wheels.”

Welcome back, Goody’s! By Ruth White More than 100 people stood outside eagerly awaiting the opening of Goody’s clothing store in Halls last week.

Godspeed, Ed It was with a heavy heart that I learned last week of the death of George Edwin “Ed” Byer, Greatest Generation hero, great human being.

Jake Mabe Somehow, though, I don’t think Ed would want us to shed too many tears. He died at age 96 and said when we sat down for an interview last year, “I have led a very eventful life.” Mr. Byer, a Fountain City resident, died Aug. 24 after a brief illness. Funeral services were held last Tuesday. He served in the U.S. Army’s 95th Division during World War II and helped liberate the city of Metz, France, in a dramatic but

Mr. Byer grew up in Park City before eventually going to work for the National Life and Accident Insurance Company, a job he held from 1938 until his retirement in 1974. He and his wife, Ina Mae, raised a family in Fountain City and traveled extensively after his retirement. He wrote a memoir about his life and his and Ina Mae’s romance, “And Then I Met That Girl,” which was released in 2009. He is survived by a son, James E.

Roy Hembree going for 75 on 75th By Betty Bean Broadway Barbershop owner Roy Hembree has been cutting hair in Fountain City since 1961. He turned 75 on Sept. 1 and had been trying to think of an appropriate way to celebrate the occasion when he came up with an idea that he figured would allow him to give back to the community he adopted so long ago. He’s holding his own personal walkathon at 8:30 a.m. on Sept. 11. He’ll walk 75 laps around Fountain City Park, and he’s been soliciting donations that he will contribute to the Fountain City Lions Club’s annual White Cane Day fund drive. As a member of the Lion’s Club board of directors (“I missed a meeting and they elected me”), he says this is a way he can contribute. “I was sitting back there thinking, ‘What am I going to do for my 75th birthday?’ Then it came to me: I’m going to walk 75 laps around the Fountain City Park trail. I’m going to get some donations and pledges. I don’t have a lot of time to go down there and work in the park like the rest of them do, but this I can do.” Hembree, a dedicated walker who did a 10-mile walk on a trail in Townsend in three hours the last weekend in August, has no fear of failure.

Emerald Youth receives $25K grant The Messer Construction Company Foundation awarded a $25,000 grant to Emerald Youth Foundation to help renovate the former Mechanicsville Medical Clinic.

Roy Hembree prepares to give longtime customer Manny Ilagan a trim. Photo by B. Bean So far, his only publicity has been word-of-mouth, but he says the response has been overwhelming. “It’s been phenomenal. I don’t know how much I’ve got in pledges, but I tell everybody the reason they’re making pledges is they figure this is going to kill me and they won’t have to pay.” Hembree and his wife, Vivian, live in Rockford,

but he’s made the 32-mile round trip to Fountain City every work day for so long (50 years) and supported Fountain City traditions like Central High School football so wholeheartedly that he feels like a bona fide Fountain Citian himself, despite his Blount County home address. In 1965, he moved to Smithwood Barbershop and

stayed there until 1997, when Ray Wallace (who hired Hembree in 1961) closed down the Fountain City Barbershop and went to the house. He sold Hembree his equipment, and two of his barbers, Karen Worley and Mary Cannon, went to work at Hembree’s new Broadway Barbershop. They’ve since been joined by Kyla Monroe. Hembree has cut back his hours just a bit and works 5:30 a.m. to 5:30 p.m. Thursday through Saturday. “I had somebody banging on the door when I got here today,” he said. The barbershop is at 3814 Broadway, on the

West Woodrow side of Big Lots. There’s a barber pole and an Ivan Harmon sign out front. Hembree says Harmon has been a friend and customer of his for years, and that he cuts former county executive Tommy Schumpert’s hair, too. He says he doesn’t force his political views on anybody but isn’t afraid to say who he’s for. Hembree and his wife have a son, Randy, who is a program director in the radiology department at UT Medical Center. Their granddaughter, Katie, is in nursing school in Washington, D.C.

Mayor is boxed in on Carter Let’s be clear. This take on the Carter school issue has nothing to do with whether building a new school or renovating the old one is the best choice. The topic is the cold calculus of politics. Mayor Tim Burchett’s push to build a new elementary school for Carter has puzzled observers outside that community from the beginning. It’s been billed as the fulfillment of a promise made well before Burchett took office. The mayor, for reasons he best understands, undertook to make good the pledge of a predecessor. It’s worth noting the “pledge” was made before the economy fell off a cliff. It was made before Burchett decided to trim the county’s debt by $100 million over five years. It was made before the county passed the decade mark without a property tax increase. And it was made before the mayor decided the only way to fund a new school for one community was to sell assets that presumably belong to and benefit the entire county. It was also made in the face of undeniable evidence that many of the county’s schools are in dire need. Selling off county assets may raise the $14-$16 million dollars needed to build the new Carter school, but what does the mayor do for an encore when other communities come calling? Burchett’s plan for Carter is ad hoc, a self-limiting strategy. Let’s consider the crux of the mayor’s dilemma. By a wide margin, those other communities outstrip Carter in two areas of interest to any officeholder who seeks reelection: voters and money. Recently, in an off the record conversation, a current county official who has held elected office for some time confessed to being baffled. Why would the mayor expend so much political capital on an issue that – at best – is of no interest to the majority of Knox County residents? Burchett’s sympathy for the children and parents in the community seems genuine, but sympathy hasn’t carried an election recently. This official agreed that a Burchett opponent in 2014 might use Carter as a cudgel if a new school is built at the expense of renovating other deteriorating schools. It’s a numbers game, and the mayor’s supporters on Carter will be outnumbered. The Devon Group’s sudden about face brought the problem into sharp relief. The school board fi xed a deadline of Oct. 17 for all plans to be in place in order to move forward. But that deadline was based on the Devon Group’s proposal, and school board counsel Michael Kelly has opined that the board can rescind its approval. Now to the cold political calculation. The Carter community needs relief; the mayor will need votes. From the latter perspective, the best political outcome for Burchett is to bring the proposal back to the school board and have it rejected. The mayor can say he gave it his best, but the school board stymied him. To those who say this makes pawns of the children and parents in Carter, welcome to reality. Contact Larry Van Guilder at

Tom Jensen and wife Carolyn, former Gov. of American Samoa Frank Barnett and wife Carolyn, as well as former Knoxville Journal reporter Ralph Griffith, and Dunn’s Commissioner of Finance Lewis Donelson, now 94, from Memphis. Dunn is in remarkably good health as is his wife, Betty, and living in Nashville. He is chairing the Mitt Romney for President campaign in Tennessee. Mayor Brown: Mayor Daniel Brown got married Aug. 27 and became the first

Knoxville mayor in more than a century to marry while in office. Knoxville also now has a new first lady, his wife, Cathy, after going almost eight months without a first lady. When my wife, Joan, was first lady, she used to say it was “work for two and pay for one.” She also did an incredibly good job, even if I say so. Barbara Pelot: If you have been wondering why there have not been photos of former Council member Barbara Pelot in the Shopper at Long’s Drug Store the last few weeks, it is because she has been ill which included a hospital stay.

Betty Bean “Surviving,” he says, thinking back to Christmas Eve 2009 in Kingsport when he was so desperate for a place to get out of the cold that he went out and got himself arrested. Earlier that year, he’d walked all the way there from Atlanta to stay with relatives after his 20-year job with a carnival faded away. By the holidays, relationships had gone sour, and he found himself out on the street again. “I got arrested for disorderly conduct just to have three hots and a cot inside a warm building,” Moore said. “I got a measly 15 days with time served.” In September 2010, Moore, 41, drifted on down to Knoxville. A member of the cross-country team when he was in high school back in Indiana, he says

walking long distances isn’t difficult for him, plus he’d been here before. “I like a town that has nice people,” he said. He pays $32 per month for a tiny one-bedroom apartment on the Fifth Avenue side of the Minvilla complex that he keeps immaculately clean. He makes $100 a month setting up the sound system at All-Souls Church, picks up some pocket change selling “The Amplifier,” a homeless newspaper published by Redeeming Hope Ministries, and is hoping to pick

Hultquist lags as election nears This Wednesday (Sept. 7) voters will start the first round in determining Knoxville’s leadership for the next four years. If past practice is a guide, half of those who vote in the Sept. 27 primary will do so in early voting. On the ballot are: mayor, city judge and four City Council seats. Two of the five candidates for mayor are former council members, Ivan Harmon and Joe Hultquist. This is Harmon’s second run for mayor. In 1995, he won 36 percent of the vote. Harmon (or Mark Padgett) might be in a runoff election with Madeline Rogero. She is close to winning it

up a little more cleaning up around Minvilla. His walls are decorated with his artwork, which he’s been able to work on since he got a place of his own. His friend Thomas Jackson is still working on finding a place to live. Jackson, who is from northern Michigan, was a truck driver before the economy tanked. Like Moore, he’s ended up in Knoxville after a difficult cross-country journey that included stops in Odessa, Texas, and Oneida, Tenn. His legal difficulties have

to do with getting thrown in jail over delinquent child support payments, which were as much as $500 per month when he was making good money. Recently, he’s acquired a part-time job working for a tree-cutting service. “It’s not like I’m completely without a job. I’ll just walk up to the foreman and say ‘Hey, can you guys use any help?’ I’ve got to pay that back child support, so I’m going to try and live down here for a while and see how it goes.” Moore and Jackson met at a Lost Sheep Ministries giveaway “under the bridge” and discovered that they had a lot in common. Jackson loves visiting Moore at Minvilla but wouldn’t want to live there himself because permanent supportive housing is too restrictive. (Residents must put visitors’ names on an approved list and visitors must surrender a picture ID to get in.) He and his case manager are working on finding a place of his own before the weather turns cold.

What was John Moore doing before he got his apartment in Minvilla Manor?

August KUB board meeting was designed to take advantage of unhappiness with KUB in general as well as specific rate increases, tree cutting practices, structure, response time to power outrage restoration and a perception by some that KUB is heavy handed. Hultquist’s remarks can be found at www. Joe is the first candidate for mayor to try to make KUB the centerpiece of his campaign. The others have ignored KUB even though it is an issue for some citizens. Hultquist scored a coup of sorts when

one KUB commissioner verbally attacked him after the meeting by terming his remarks “offensive” which got Hultquist prominent mention in the News Sentinel. Hultquist would abolish the KUB board and merge the utility back into a city department. It is hard to see how this resolves the four KUB issues Hultquist raises. The city does not have a good track record in managing utilities. Dunn Reunion: Former Gov. Winfield Dunn, who left office 36 years ago as Tennessee’s first Republican governor in 50 years,

PULL UP A CHAIR ‌ | Jake Mabe

Ten years ago‌ T

en years ago I took my first trip to New York City. That Saturday morning dawned bright and clear. It was a beautiful late summer day. Labor Day weekend. Not a cloud in the sky. You could just feel the chill of an early fall. We hopped a train near my high school friend Drew Weaver’s home in Branford, Conn., and set out for the big city. This was also my first time on an honest-to-God passenger train. Danged if the conductor didn’t come by for tickets wearing a spiffy uniform and a cool hat, just like in the movies! We arrived at Grand Central Station and followed the crowd up the stairs and out into Manhattan. I tried not to look like a tourist, but I couldn’t keep from gazing skyward. I’d never seen such a sight. This was a city. You know what they say. If you can make it there, you’ll make it anywhere. First things first, though. I made a beeline for the newsstand and bought a copy of The New York Times. (What can I say? My blood is filled with newsprint.) We had some time to kill before the matinee performance of Herb Gardner’s “A Thousand Clowns,� so we walked down to the Empire State Building. Up on the observation deck, I just knew I’d see Cary Grant and Deborah Kerr. So much for “An Affair to Remember.� Off we looked into lower Manhattan, gazing toward the grand ol’ Statue of Liberty, yes, but especially toward those magnificent twin towers. The World Trade Center. The center of the world’s financial market. “The Center of the World,� as one TV show put it. By lunchtime we made our way

toward Times Square. Being the adventuresome Halls kids that we were, we ate at McDonald’s. Authentic New York cuisine, right? Never having been to a Broadway play before, we didn’t know exactly what to expect or when to arrive. So, we got to the Longacre Theatre about an hour and a half before show time. They didn’t let us in. Standing around outside with about 15 or 20 others, we passed the time by watching the people and the traffic go by. After awhile, up pulled an SUV with tinted windows. A tall, good-looking man who looked vaguely familiar got out of the car. “I know him from somewhere,� I told my two companions. “That’s Tom Selleck!� one of them said. “He just doesn’t have his mustache.�

through my head. I was going to tell Selleck how much I admired him, how much I’d enjoyed his TV westerns, how I loved “Magnum� so much so that I had every episode on tape. I got up there to him, stuck out my hand, opened my mouth, smiled and couldn’t think of one word to say. Speechless. So, I just looked up at him, my mouth hanging open like an idiot. I managed to croak out, “Hello, Mr. Selleck.� Tom Selleck! “Magnum, p.i.� He shook my hand, nodded, waitMy hero! ed for me to get over my star-struck Selleck was gracious enough to state then finally turned to talk to stop and sign autographs or have the person beside me.

I hated to admit it, but the young actor Nicholas King, who played the other main role in the story, was so good he stole the show, even from Magnum. The play ended as late afternoon shadows began to blanket the city. We made our way back to Grand Central, back to Connecticut, back to reality. The date was Sept. 1, 2001. You know what happened 10 days later. I went back to Manhattan the following February to pay my respects. We took the subway down to what used to be the World Trade Center on a cold and gray Tuesday afternoon. The sky was spitting snow like frozen teardrops. New York is a busy and loud city, full of cacophony – honking taxi cab horns, screeching brakes,

In this June 23, 1999, file photo, an aerial view shows the twin towers of the World Trade Center in New York. Since the 9/11 attacks that brought down the buildings in 2001, much has changed at skyscrapers around the country, but experts say obvious precautions still leave thousands of buildings vulnerable because the costs to retrofit existing structures may be too costly, and cities and states may be slow to adopt newer, tougher building codes for new construction like those recommended after the deadliest terror attack on U.S. soil.

barking yells from street vendors. But Ground Zero was silent. No traffic. No talk. It reminded me of the awkward silence one encounters while standing in a receiving line at a funeral. Workers were still uncovering remains. The Times listed each one in the paper. I think they found five people while we were there. You could still see the handpainted signs that families had left near the wreckage. “Have you seen me? Please call XXX,� one read underneath the photograph of somebody too young to die. Another sign was a little more to the point. “Osama: Kiss my ass.� I thought then that the world would change forever. I figured our national discourse would become nicer, calmer, more caring, more thoughtful. It didn’t. Ten years have rolled by and Sept. 11, 2001, seems but a memory, something in the history books. A high school teacher friend of mine says his 9th graders don’t even remember it. They were 4 years old. We lost friends, family members and acquaintances that day. Tony Karnes, who used to go to church at Clear Springs Baptist with me and my family years and years ago, was one. We can’t ever forget them. We can’t ever forget. “9/11, how can you possibly use it for good purpose?� asked former New York Gov. Mario Cuomo in a PBS special after the attacks. “Look, what this reminds you of is the importance of your own life, and making the most of it, because you can lose it in a flash. And if that’s all you learned from 9/11, if that’s all you remembered, that, my God, you could extinguish life so suddenly, so unexpectedly, and it could happen to me, and therefore I should think harder about the way I spend my life instead of just wasting it. “Now, it’s not going to teach you what to do with your life, but it will teach you to do with your life, and to do it more and quicker and better.� Words worth remembering, lest we forget.

I am honored to be the 2011 Campaign Chair for United Way of Greater Knoxville. United Way’s goal is to create long-lasting changes by addressing problems’ underlying causes. It takes everyone in the community working together to create a brighter future. The work of the United Way is based on the belief that everyone deserves a quality education that leads to a stable job, enough income to support a family through retirement and good health. After 89 years of providing funding for many groups that serve children, the local United Way has changed the way it awards grants to agencies providing educational services. The new process, developed by the Community Engagement & Mobilization committee, chaired by Dr. Randy Curnow of Summit Medical, allows new organizations to be funded by United Way while giving traditional partners the opportunity to expand. The competitive outcomebased process was designed to better align with goals; to encourage collaboration, innovation and inclusiveness; and to create permanent change in the community. Three-year grants will be awarded to innovative programs that target Knox

firstforward County Schools’ long term education goals and offer measurable outcomes. The process has several phases. The first was to invite Letters of Intent. Following review of those, invitations for Requests for Investment will go to agencies identified as strong candidates. Oral hearings will follow review of documents and field trips to agencies. The board will vote on funding in March; funding begins in April. We all win when a child succeeds in school, when families are financially stable, when people are healthy. The changes in the educational grants program will pay dividends in next year’s classrooms as well as the next generation’s workplaces and neighborhoods. Ultimately, United Way isn’t about the number of individuals served or how many programs are funded, but how lives are changed and improved. Please join me in supporting United Way.

By Jake Mabe The Rev. Robert Cook doesn’t like to talk about himself. He says his church, Cross Roads Presbyterian, is the story, not him. “It’s a treasure in the Halls community,” he says. Cook has served as the church’s pastor since Jan. 1, 2002. He also works as an education officer for the Knox County Sheriff’s Office. Originally from Scotland, he has been in the United States since 1988. He says that Cross Roads welcomed him and his family with open arms. “When we left Scotland to come to the U.S., all of my family was still in Scotland. The church has been an important part of our lives. If you’re looking for family,

involved (in Inasmuch). We probably had 30 or 40 people involved and percentage wise that’s probably half or two-thirds of our congregation. Percentage-wise, we have a lot of active people doing a lot of things.” Cook says the church is currently discussing a growth program. Depending on the results of its outreach efforts and the upcoming Back to Church event, that could mean building a new sanctuary. “But we’re still investigating what we might do.” Cook says the Back to Church service will be “a little bit different than what we have done in the past. “We plan to share the journey of faith and introduce people to Jesus. They won’t see how wonderful we are, they’ll see how wonderful God is.” Cross Roads Presbyterian Church is located at 4329 East Emory Road at the intersection of Emory Road and Maynardville Highway in front of the Halls Middle/ Halls High campus.

Hear my cry, O God, From the end of the earth will I cry unto Thee, When my heart is overwhelmed: Lead me to the rock that is higher than I; For Thou hast been a shelter for me, And a strong tower from the enemy. I will trust in the covert of Thy wings. Alleluia. (Psalm 61: 1-3 KJV) I have it in me so much nearer home To scare myself with my own desert places. (“Desert Places,” Robert Frost) As is so often the case, I know this Psalm text because I sang it, long ago, in high school. Since then, I have played it as service music, directed a hand-selected chorale in it and hummed it to console myself during my own desert days. Alan Hovhaness’ setting of it is a haunting melody, in a minor key. I have often wondered what sort of tune David the shepherd boy sang with these words. I would wager it was minor, or even more probably, modal. There are times in our lives that are straight out of the wilderness. Days when we are lost and directionless, days when the path is steep and rocky. There are days when we wander in circles, and days when we sit down on the nearest ledge because we can go no farther. The desert serves as backdrop for some of the Bible’s greatest stories: Moses crossing the desert after being exiled from Egypt; the Israelites’ years of wandering in the Sinai Peninsula; Elijah fleeing the wrath of Jezebel to sit under a broom tree in the wilderness; John the Baptizer preaching scathing sermons in the wilderness of Judea; and Jesus fasting in the wilderness after his baptism. These stories are dramatic and vivid. The desert is an instrument used by God to sear and purify God’s own, whether they be nations or

Cross Currents

prophets or saviors. So to say that we have our own desert days may be overly dramatic. Still, there are times when the sand gets in our teeth, and the bread dries out before we can spread the olive oil on it, and our eyes are too tired to continue searching the horizon for water. The aloneness is too much, and there are buzzards circling overhead. It is in those days when we learn who we really are, what kind of stuff we are made of and just how much we are good for. In the desert days, we discover exactly what we believe about God, and it may not be the stuff of Sunday school lessons. But it will be real, and it will be our own. I am persuaded that God does not cause our pain and trials. I believe with all my heart that God’s will is always toward health and wholeness. But when desert days come, God will not waste them. God will use them, if we will but allow it, to forge us into something – someone – who is usable, unique and utterly God’s own.

A place to start fresh and a place of new beginnings. My belief is that (judging others) is not my job.” The church will host a Back to Church service at 10:45 a.m. Sunday, Sept. 18. Cook says he hopes people come to church, whether it’s at Cross Roads or somewhere else and hopes that people, “find a place that you can call home.” Cook says that Cross Roads Presbyterian is “a small church that reaches out and touches a lot of people.” The Halls Food Pantry, which is supported by several churches and businesses in the area, is housed at the church. And Cross Roads also partners with Fountain City United Methodist Church to support Family Promise of Knoxville, a nonprofit organization that partners with area churches to help homeless people become self-sufficient. The church has also participated in Operation: Inasmuch, a community service and outreach program, in the past. “What amazes me is the number of church people

Oh, the places you will go TALES OF TENNESSEE | Marvin West With her famous stare, Pat Summitt looked the early stages of dementia in the eye and absolutely refused to back down. A few weeks earlier and not far away, Joan Cronan moved from the relative comfort of women’s fun and games to become interim vice chancellor and director of all University of Tennessee athletics – and promptly impressed all concerned. The two happenings, at opposite ends of the emotional scale, are enough to

make some of us blot our eye makeup and stand up and applaud. After my heart hurt subsided, I realized I would have expected no less from Pat – but it undoubtedly takes raw courage to live life in a glass house. Of course Joan is a smart manager, rich in experience, tough but tactful, capable of doing whatever it takes. Instead of following the yellow brick road into retirement, she accepted the challenge of a tense situation and imme-

diately restored order. Dearly beloved Dr. Jimmy breathed a great sigh of relief and went on vacation. Several NCAA dragons smiled and sat down. Troubled fans who had feared the world was nearing an end said “Wow!” All of a sudden, the desperate search for a real athletic director wasn’t such a big deal. We got Joan. God knows the committee wasn’t likely to do better. The spotlight is old hat to Pat. She has had a headline career, eight big cham-


Joseph Edward Stafford will celebrate his sixth birthday Sept. 8 with a party with family and friends. He is the son of Charles and Geraldine Stafford and has four sisters and three brothers: Savannah, Karen, Lora, Tammy, Jerry, Mike and Kevin. Grandfather is Loren “Bud” McDowell.

Summers celebrates 80 years Mary Anna Summers celebrated her 80th birthday Aug. 30 with a tree planting party and dinner in her honor. Twelve family members gathered at Summers’ home and planted three Dynamite Crape Myrtle trees. This was a special birthday for Summers, and the family had reason to be thankful. Summers was diagnosed in June with kidney cancer and had surgery to remove her right kidney. She is now cancer free and

pionships, 1,071 victories against all-comers – except UConn. Going back to the autumn of ’74, what she has accomplished seems highly improbable if not downright impossible. Pat did it her way, win with honor, far more fundamentals than fancy. There are other key words: intensity, iron will, doggedly determined, a rare gladiator able to fit in high society. The affliction triggered other words: shock, anger, sadness. I kept wondering why Pat? She does so much good. I know about mind fade. Bad stuff. Took out our next-door neighbor. Depressing. After Pat said no pity parties, even I got the message. If Alzheimer’s was looking for a fight, it has one. Sound the gong and let’s get it on! Forced focus on Pat and celebration of Joan takes

me back to the beginning, to what I thought was the dreadful Title IX legislation and how to trim sports for men so there would be funding for women. Oh no, women would never make their own way. Who would pay to see them play? Just divide up the scholarships and send the bill to whatever is left of football. I still don’t like parts of Title IX or government dabbling in sports or political correctness in general. But I love results, hundreds of teams we wouldn’t have and thousands of players who would otherwise be stuck as cheerleaders. Without the law, we might not have Pat or Joan or their examples or the lessons they have taught. Without the law, we might not have cut down the nets or enjoyed that 39-0 or Candace Parker or Chamique Holdsclaw or a

basketball floor named The Summitt. A coaching woman earning $1.5 million? No way. Well, in this one case, she might be worth it in residuals. Joan and Pat are blessings. When so much else was dim or dark, they were bright lights. Consider the impact of their philosophy: “There is a winner inside each of you.” I recall Summitt saying, perhaps in one of her books, that she loves being around positive attitudes. Contagious. She speaks in favor of work. She calls it starting your engine each morning. She has always expressed concern about how people treat each other. It gets close to the Golden Rule. And the punch line about just rewards, borrowed from Dr. Seuss, “Oh! The Places You Will Go.”

Benedictions Never say goodbye because goodbye means going away and going away means forgetting. – From “Peter Pan” by J.M. Barrie

Zac and I are going on a trip soon, and our son, Daniel, will be staying with my parents. Daniel is already pumped about it, because Gran and Bear have a fun-filled weekend planned, complete with pony rides and a visit to a real fire station.

Shannon Carey

moms101 I asked Daniel this morning to tell me what he was going to do with Gran and Bear, and he recited the whole agenda with excitement. “You’re not even going to miss me, then, are you?” I said. Daniel looked at me for a moment, threw his arms around my neck and said, “No, Mommy. I miss you.” Well, gentle reader, I’m going to miss you, too. It’s been a wonderful, wacky journey. In this column each week for more than three years, I’ve covered every parenting jubilation, freak-out and goof, every burp, tooth and potty incident in Daniel’s first years. I’m sorry to say, it’s time to bring the tale to a close. It’s not just that times are tough, and the Shopper is looking at ways to trim costs, one of those being paper. It’s also the very real concern that Daniel is getting to be old enough to know what I’m doing. Soon, he’ll be old enough to be embarrassed by it. I’m not writing an anonymous blog here. My name and face are right up there. The poor little guy is still going to have to endure some “I read all about your potty training” trauma, just like the Shopper’s Jake Mabe is still haunted by ghosts of Elvis performances past.

I started writing this column in the winter of 2008. I was very pregnant, very idealistic and very scared. I wrote about “mom” issues, and once Daniel arrived, these columns became more and more about his life and mine. And, whenever I was sure I was just quacking into the void, one of you would see me and Daniel at the park or at the grocery story and talk about how much you enjoyed reading about him. From my heart, thank you. In the six years that I’ve been a professional journalist, I’ve gotten more positive responses about this column than I have for anything else I’ve done. Just as Daniel has changed over the years, growing from an infant to a little man with opinions and personality, I’ve changed. We’ve worked on each other like a trickle of water works on a mountain. Over time, the trickle is a stream and its path is a valley. Daniel has taught me patience. He’s taught me to accept life as it comes. He’s taught me to let go of my plans. Most of all, he’s taught me about love. I can say with certainty that there’s no love on Earth like a mother’s love for her child. It’s even a little scary sometimes when I realize that there’s nothing I wouldn’t do for my son. It’s overpowering and humbling, like riding an ocean wave. While there were weeks when I thought I’d never come up with a column, I will miss this writing. I think the forced reflection made me a better, more thoughtful mother. If you’d like to keep up with me and my little family, feel free to make me a friend on Facebook (shannon.b.carey) or follow me on Twitter (@Shannon_Carey). Or, just stop by the Shopper office, and we’ll chat the old-fashioned way. Until then, farewell, and thanks for everything. Contact Shannon Carey at shannon@

teacher was to make math a fun thing to learn. Lots of kids are afraid of it and think it’s nothing but a bunch of memorization, and don’t see it as a fun thing. It’s like a disease to some kids. You have to bring in a lot of activities and let them discover things on their own, and you really have to try to find a way to connect with the ones who hate it so they can find out it’s not the big bear every body thinks it is.” Is high school too late to start this process? “With the technology that we have now, I wouldn’t say it’s ever too late. I think any time you can get kids to connect to it you can make progress with them. You don’t ever want to give up on anybody who’s willing to learn. That’s the key. They have to be willing. If they trust you and know you have their best interests at heart, they’ll bust it to learn for you. “Math is just so essential for every day. If you don’t have a good background, there are so many ways you can be taken advantage of.” She is married to Sid Harrel and has three sons and a daughter, none of whom hated math. Her youngest daughter is majoring in chemical engineering at the University of Tennessee.

Settling into her new job as assistant principal hasn’t been difficult for Karen Harrel, even though she’s only been at Central High School since July. That’s probably because she knew a lot about the school coming in. She’d already worked for principal Danny Trent at Carter Middle School, and her son, Andrew Brown, taught Biology I and coached football at Central for five years. “I look forward to a great year as a Bobcat,” she said. “Danny Trent is an amazing principal to work for and the assistant principals have been very helpful. I think we have a strong team.” Harrel’s responsibilities include sophomores, special education and working with the mathematics department curriculum. She came to Central from South-Doyle Middle School, where she was principal for four years. Before that she was at Farragut Middle School. “Most of my experience has been at the middle school level, but I love the high school environment – or at least I love this one,” she said. Her first impressions, now that the school year has begun? “It’s a very friendly campus with friendly students and welcoming teachers, plus the administration has been great to work with.” Before she went into administration, Harrel was a math teacher, mostly at the 7th and 8th grade level. She met Danny Trent when she was teaching 6th grade math at Carter. “I love math,” she said. “And I love working with kids and helping them learn to enjoy math. My goal as a

Halls High band presents ‘From Dusk till Dawn’ By Jake Mabe You may want to hold off going for a Coke and hot dog during halftime at Halls High football games this season. At least until after the band plays. Band director Eric Baumgardner says that this year’s show, “From Dusk till Dawn,” features the music of Clair de lune (French for moonlight) and is inspired by the famous piano work by Claude Debussy. The music may be familiar to filmgoers as the musical score that plays during the climatic waterfall sequence in “Ocean’s 11.” “We take that music, twist it and conform it,” Baumgardner says. “Eventually we’ll have a moon on the football field. The moon will be folded in half to represent the sun setting then we’ll open the moon in the second segment and then close the moon to repre-

sent the sunrise, as part of (the theme) ‘From Dusk till Dawn.’ “The kids are doing great and we had great crowd response at the ball game the other night. It was a good first run of our show. The kids are ahead of the game and we try to add Baumgardner more body and guard work each week.” The band features 136 members this year. Baumgardner says the group’s collective GPA is high, “which means they are taking care of business in the classroom while managing the (amount of) time this class takes.” This year’s leadership is: junior Erica Massengill (drum major), junior Clay Leach (assistant drum major), senior Andy Cummings

(band captain), senior Justin Splane (brass captain), senior Alan Sharpe (woodwind captain), junior Daniel Del Moro (drum captain), senior Chasity Hobby (color guard cocaptain), senior Taylor Carr (color guard co-captain) and senior Stephanie Hill (majorette captain). Baumgardner says the band is gearing up for contest season, which begins Saturday, Sept. 24, at the Karns Marching Invitational. Other contests include the Volunteer Classic at Heritage High School in Blount County on Saturday, Oct. 8; the Knox County Exhibition, in which every high school band will perform its fall show, Tuesday, Oct. 11, at Farragut High School; the Contest of Champions at Middle Tennessee State University on Saturday, Oct. 22; and the Band Beat Marching Band Championship at Gardner-Webb University on Saturday, Nov. 5.

Gibbs High student Mackenzie Hucklebee chats with Drama Club sponsor Crystal Braeuner at a recent meeting. Photo by Ruth White

Oh, the drama! Students at Gibbs High School are getting a little dramatic – at least in the area of theatre. Drama Club sponsors Crystal Braeuner and Allison Varnes met with students interested in theatre and got right to work making plans for the upcoming year. One project the group

participated in last year was working at the Oakes Farm corn maze, bringing a new element of fright to the event. During the school’s Night of the Arts, the drama club portrayed the game of “Clue.” “This is a great outlet for those students who are not able to be in theatre,”

said Brauener. “It’s a support system for the theatre program and gives students an opportunity to become active through community service.” Anyone interested in the Drama Club should see Braeuner in room 204. The club will meet at 3:35 p.m. on Mondays.

Fort Sanders Cardiac Rehab gets dancer back on her toes If you see 79-year-old Jin Gaston in a South Knoxville supermarket speeding along with a buggy, she may be doing more than grocery store shopping. “When I walk, I get a buggy and go up and down the aisles as fast as I can go,” she explains with a laugh. Gaston regularly exercises her heart since undergoing quintuple bypass surgery last year at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center. She’s working to prevent a heart attack. “I’m not an outside person, so I walk with the buggy,” she says. “You just go up and down the aisles.” Before coming up with her walking routine, Gaston attended Fort Sanders Cardiac Rehabilitation Outpatient Program for 12 weeks after her surgery. The program instructors taught her the importance of exercising to recover from the heart surgery that likely saved her life. “My doctors say I was a walking heart time bomb,” she explains. “I didn’t even know that I had a heart problem. I didn’t feel good all summer, and then last July I had a tightness in my chest and pain in my shoulder.” When she experienced the tightness in her chest, her husband, Jack, took her to the Emergency Department at Fort Sanders Regional. Physicians at Fort Sanders used a heart catheter procedure to diagnose five near-blockages in her heart. She was scheduled right away for emergency bypass surgery. It took nine weeks for her to recover from the surgery. Gaston then entered the Cardiac Rehabilitation program at Fort Jin Gaston and husband Jack take a spin on the Sanders to regain her strength. dance floor after her heart surgery and cardiac “I started therapy there three days a rehabilitation at Fort Sanders Regional.

week,” she says. “At first, I was using a walker.” Now, Gaston and husband Jack are back to their ballroom dancing events at the O’Connor Senior Center twice a week, enjoying the fox trot, waltz, rumba, cha-cha and swing. “It is fun and really good exercise,” smiles Gaston, who has also returned to teaching dancing classes. Patients at Fort Sanders Cardiac Rehabilitation program attend workout sessions and lectures several days a week. Nutritionists, exercise therapists and nurses instruct patients on the importance of a healthy diet, how to manage pain and exercises to strengthen the heart. “The therapists are so attentive,” says Gaston. “They make sure that you’re OK during the time you’re there, with a heart monitor while you exercise. It really makes you feel good to get therapy.” Gaston says she and her husband are continuing the diet tips they learned at Fort Sanders. “I’ve lost at least 35 pounds, but I am not as strict on my diet as I should be, of course,” she says. “I do eat some sweets from time to time.” Gaston recommends the Fort Sanders Cardiac Rehabilitation Center to anyone who needs help recovering from surgery or a heart attack. “I had excellent care,” she smiles. “I highly recommend it. The good Lord has blessed me. I would just say anybody that has heart problems or surgery, they really need to go to Fort Sanders Rehab. They are just wonderful.” To discover how the Cardiac Rehabilitation Outpatient Program at Fort Sanders Regional could help you, call (865) 541-1250.

Build up your heart muscle with Fort Sanders Cardiac Rehab Center Leaving the hospital is just the first step in recovering from a heart attack, heart surgery or angioplasty. Cardiac patients often need to strengthen weakened heart muscles and learn heart-healthy practices. Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center heart patients are referred to the hospital’s Cardiac Rehabilitation Outpatient Program. The three-month program offers exercise sessions and health classes to establish lifestyle changes that help reduce the patient’s risk of further heart disease. “Cardiac Rehabilitation is a multidisciplinary treatment plan which involves medication, nursing, exercise physiology, nutrition and psychology. We know it’s difficult to make lifestyle change, so we try to provide people support so they can change,” explains Cardiac Rehab nurse case manager Brenda Leuthold. Patients exercise three times each week while hooked to a heart monitor. They also attend 16 different classes on nutrition, stress management and medications. “That’s long enough to help get habits formed,” says Leuthold. After completing the rehab program, patients are invited back to the center to continue exercising. The center has exercise bikes, step machines, treadmills and free weights. “It’s a wonderful support group for anybody that’s had heart disease or heart procedures,” says Leuthold. “We have a lot of great outcomes.” For information about the Cardiac Rehabilitation Outpatient Program at Fort Sanders Regional, call (865) 541-1250.

After all, we can’t change the world one dog at a time if we turn everyone against us by forgetting our manners. Imagine if someone brought their child to your house and let them poop in your yard, casually walking away afterward. In my opinion, letting your pet relieve him- or herself on someone else’s property and failing to clean it up is the same thing.

Ivan Harmon enjoys the fifth annual Mayor’s Picnic for senior adults with his granddaughter, Sydney Harmon.

Linda Breeden receives a recipe for a healthy entrée from Atria Weston Place. A health fair was set up at the mayor’s picnic and offered information on health topics and services for senior adults.

After I wrote recently about Knoxville being named the most dog-friendly city in the Southeast, I received a call from Ruby in Fountain City who had additional insight into the matter. “People take their dogs for a walk at night and let them poop in your yard, and don’t clean it up,” she complained. My fellow pet lovers of Ktown, please remember your manners when walking your furry friends. If Knoxville is going to continue to be a topdog city in America, pet owners must do their part as well. If you are walking your dog anywhere other than your own property – whether in the street, in the park or in your neighbor’s yard – remember to bring some potty supplies along to clean up the mess. A simple plastic grocery bag and gardening shovel should do the trick.
