‘Inasmuch’ boosts Gresham grounds Community members from area churches worked together to clean up the grounds at Gresham Middle School as part of Operation Inasmuch. The idea of the program, founded by then-pastor of Central Baptist Fountain City David Crocker, is to move congregants out of their seats and into the streets and is based on Jesus’ saying that “inasmuch as you did it for the least of these, you did it for me.” Ruth White has pictures and more inside.

Halls has cars! By Ruth White The annual car show hosted by the Halls High band grows bigger every year. This year 117 vehicles were registered. Band director Eric Baumgardner called it the biggest show to date. The Best of Show was the 1936 Ford Coupe driven by George Hacket. The Band Director’s Award went to Judy Hamrick, who entered a 1946 wrecker in memory of her husband, Bill. Other winners included top club, Muscle Car Ministries; top motorcycle, Joe Wilkinson’s 1997 Harley Springer; top truck, John Crismon’s 1998 GMC Sonoma; top import, Carol Hall’s 1965 red VW bug; Top modified winner was Tom

Band director Eric Baumgardner selects the vehicle to receive the Band Director’s Award. This year, for Baumgardner, the story behind the vehicle made his decision easy. He awarded the trophy to Judy Hamrick, who entered her late husband’s 1946 wrecker in the show. When the name was called, Hamrick was speechless and hugged Baumgardner tightly.

New middle schools inch forward By Betty Bean

For months, groups from Gibbs and Hardin Valley have been making the case for new middle schools in their communities. Hardin Valley residents cite their community’s booming population. Gibbs supporters talk about the unfairness of three-hour school bus rides over to Holston. Superintendent James McIntyre addressed those concerns in his 2015 Capital Budget and Planning Priorities memo earlier this month but said that middle school issues cannot be discussed individually and recommended a long, thorough study: “… I am recommending we designate a modest level of resources ($75,000) for a complete review of our middle school infrastructure

and analysis of student population growth/enrollment patterns during FY15. Such a study will provide important data and insights that will inform our future decisions regarding capital resources, enrollment planning and zoning strategies. “In light of recent public discourse, we have estimated potential expenditures in the capital improvement plan for construction of a new Hardin Valley Middle School and a new Gibbs Middle School should the study recommend this course of action.” The school board approved the recommendation, and the internal study will be conducted. But on “Inside Tennessee,” when John Becker asked board chair Lynne Fugate how people can find out where their school project ranks

on the capital plan, she said there is “no per year list.” It’s a “falsehood,” she said, that there is a ranking somewhere. “Needs change.” Reactions from the communities most affected are guardedly optimistic. Lisa Starbuck has been a consistent and vocal booster for a Gibbs Middle School: “I am encouraged that Dr. McIntyre is listening to community concerns about the middle school need in Gibbs and delighted to see a Gibbs Middle School on the five-year capital plan. “I understand his reasoning for doing a system-wide middle school study because factors such as feeder patterns, transportation costs and impacts to

other middle schools should be evaluated. I am confident that there are sufficient numbers of students ... to fill a middle school in Gibbs and that building a new school will solve overcrowding and transportation issues, among others.” If Starbuck sees the glass as half-full, boosters on the Hardin Valley Supports a Middle School Facebook page are more guarded than optimistic: “Turns out that the board does not specifically vote on the next five years so the HVMS and Gibbs Middle are a ‘blueprint’ but weren’t specifically approved or rejected tonight. But the results of the study will help drive the actions taken by the board in the near future.”

Pellissippi prepares for Tennessee Promise By Betsy Pickle Now that Gov. Bill Haslam’s free higher-education plan, Tennessee Promise, has earned legislative approval, the state’s community colleges are facing the possibility of significantly increased enrollment, which could put a burden on teachers and classrooms. Pellissippi State Community College, with 10,600 students on five campuses in the Knoxville area, is the largest local school affected by the legislation, but the mood there is preparation, not panic. President Anthony Wise says

Pellissippi State should be able to accommodate any influx beginning with the registration for the 2015-16 school year. “We are starting to look at it and to think about it,” says Wise. “It’s really built on the modAnthony Wise el of Tennessee Achieves, which started here in Knox County and Blount County.

Wise says generally 60 percent to 65 percent of students have to take some type of remediation course at Pellissippi State. “That’s among the best at community colleges within the state,� he says. “Some places it’s significantly higher. Most students generally have one area of remediation, and more often than not it’s mathematics.� Tennessee Promise students are likely to mirror those numbers, he says. “One of the conversations we’re having is, how do we deal with the fact that perhaps in the fall of 2015, not only do we see this increase but we see an increase in students who really need additional assistance and support academically in order to be successful?� Statistics show that students coming in through Tennessee Achieves are more likely to stay in school and graduate – and do so more quickly – than the general student population, Wise

says, and he thinks the same thing may happen with the Tennessee Promise. “I think there are a couple of things that have made Tennessee Achieves successful and I think have the possibility of making the Tennessee Promise successful,� he says. “They have strict requirements on the obligations that the students have to meet – they have to attend meetings at their high school, they have to complete their financial aid form by a certain time, they have to register at community college by a certain time, they have to work with a mentor, and they have to give a day of service back each semester to the community.�

Tennessee Promise Gov. Bill Haslam’s signature initiative was developed in part by South Knox native Randy Boyd. It was adopted 87-8 in the state House and 30-1 in the Senate. All members of the Knox County legislative delegation voted yes, including Democrats Gloria Johnson and Joe Armstrong; and Republicans Becky Massey, Stacey Campfield, Harry Brooks, Bill Dunn, Roger Kane and Steve Hall. The bill was revenue neutral, redirecting proceeds from the state lottery.

Free advice for the candidates Pray for rain on Tuesday, May 6, if you’re about changing the status quo. A low turnout helps school board challengers, for instance, while a huge turnout will probably aid incumbents. Bobby Waggoner can win if: ■ He reminds GOP primary voters that Jimmy “J.J.” Jones ran against Sheriff Tim Hutchison and lost. Jones endorsed the Democrat and lost again. Then Jones went to work for the Democratic attorney general. ■ He talks pensions. Hutchison has one; Jones will have one; Waggoner does not/will not. ■ It rains. Ed Shouse will carry commission District 4 by 3-1; and Craig Leuthold will carry commission District 5 by the same margin, said a political pundit. The winner will be determined in Gibbs and Halls and Carter and South of the River. The Trustee’s Office is overstaffed, and it pays that staff in part by robbing Knox County Schools of more than $1 million a year in the “trustee’s commission.” Yes, state law permits it, but a serious-minded trustee would just stop taking it. Who’s more likely to reduce the staff: Shouse, who comes from the private sector, or Leuthold, who has worked in one office or another for 20 years? Mike Hammond needs to stay calm while his News Sentinel-endorsed opponent self-destructs. Hey, Mike. Make sure you paid your doctor. Try not to faint before public speakings. And remember, you decided to run for Criminal Court clerk a year ago. Your opponent dropped in after the incumbent dropped out. Who’s more likely to sweep clean? New broom. Patti Bounds, you got lucky, and now you’re heading to the school board. Take your seat proudly and stay true to what you know – your former colleagues in the classrooms across Knox County and the kids who are our future. Jim McIntyre, we know you’re not on the ballot, but in your next job try not to outshine the elected officials, especially the mayor. Spend more time with your troops. For what good is a general without an army?

Betty Bean at SPEAK’s success. “SPEAK is kind of an organic reaction to create a focal point for teacher and parent discontent. We’re looking at how we can direct that in a positive way. It’s exciting to be part of a movement, but it’s scary if it’s all focused on anger.” He believes SPEAK has become a conduit for information for parents and citizens, generally.

“We aim to be a place where parents can ask questions and learn about things. That’s one of the things I’m proud about – the exchange of information. We knew we had some really talented, driven people who had access to information – people like Joan Grim, now at UT, who was a special ed teacher in Knox County. One of the things we have tried to do is put the information that’s behind the emotion where people can get to it,” Gorman said, observing that while emotion is a good catalyst, there’s no substitute for facts. “That’s one of the things I’m proud about – the exchange of information. Your child’s second grade teacher might not be comfortable sharing information over the phone with you specifically about tests your child is taking, although we have discovered that some of the surveys that are being done are not necessary. On the SPEAK page, you can get those answers. I’m really

proud of that because that’s the purpose of SPEAK.” Lauren Hopson, who was one of the first teachers to speak out, said the group began with a number of teachers who started seeing one another at school board meetings and decided they had a lot in common. She credits teacher Amy Cate with doing the early legwork. The group really got going with a boot camp in January (assisted by Jobs with Justice) and has met monthly since then. Its endorsements of school board candidates have been hotly debated and widely sought. “I hope to see a public engaged with their legislators to help protect public education,” Hopson said. “I hope to see SPEAK members engaged with their school board and having a voice in how things are run – a voice in how best to help our children.” Check out SPEAK’s endorsements here: http://

Henry’s retirement is ‘end of an era’

GOSSIP AND LIES Marilyn Toppins went to Nashville to lobby for teachers. Of course, she was wearing the button of the Tennessee Education Association (TEA). A fellow she didn’t know approached her, all smiles. After greeting her like a long-lost friend, he said, “I didn’t know the Tea Party had an emblem like that.” A candidate said he’s for the three Ts: teachers, technology and textbooks. Toppins said, “Why not? We’ve pretty much worn out the three Rs.”

tor. Henry, a Democrat, served 44 years in the Senate, which ties him with Lt. Gov. John Wilder, but when his two years in the House are added to make 46 years total he becomes the longest-serving Tennessean in the General Assembly. His retirement truly marks the end of an era. At age 87, his major contribution has been a consistent voice for financial responsibility. He believes in states’ rights without the stigma of segregation. He feels our U.S. senators are Tennessee’s ambassadors to the federal government. His integrity was beyond reproach and his

Victor Ashe

courtly ways represented a (regrettably) bygone era. He served with eight governors going back to Frank Clement. He said Alexander and McWherter “were the easiest to work with.” ■ Mark Hazelwood, company president of Pilot Flying J, certainly has wide-ranging tastes when it comes to the U.S. Senate. Just two years ago he was hosting a reception for the re-election of conservative Republican Sen. Bob Corker at his elaborate Sequoyah Hills home attended by Gov. Bill Haslam and some 300-plus backers. Last week, Hazelwood hosted an event for local Democratic U.S. Senate candidate Gordon Ball (along with Auburn basketball coach Bruce Pearl). Ball hopes to oppose Sen. Lamar Alexander in November. Ball’s first vote if elected to the U.S. Senate would be to make a liberal Democrat the majority leader and most likely would thereafter cancel out Corker’s vote on any issue of significance. Ball and Corker could be reasonably described as ideological opposites. However, it seems Hazelwood and Ball often play golf together and Ball is

Hazelwood’s attorney on some issues. Ball is a colorful figure, having previously run for Congress against the late Jimmy Quillen in 1978. Now he is a wealthy attorney who has had financial success with several class-action lawsuits. One $17 million fee he received was litigated in his divorce lawsuit, which went to the state Supreme Court in 2010. His opponent, Knoxville attorney Terry Adams, is running a low-key campaign. ■ Martin Daniel plans an aggressive campaign in the remaining 100 days to the August primary where he opposes incumbent state Rep. Steve Hall, one of the quietest members of the Legislature. Daniel, in an interview, says Hall is “not talking because he doesn’t have anything to say. He is in over his head.” The district lies in West and northwest Knoxville and Knox County. Daniel seeks debates with Hall and did visit Hall a few weeks ago to advise him he would be running. He said he opposed Hall’s bill to sell Lakeshore Park, which Stacey Campfield pushed in the Senate. Daniel calls Campfield and Hall “two peas in a pod.” Daniel adds that Hall has proposed 18 bills in four years and none has anything to do with reducing red tape in state government. Daniel says he is “fine with the job Gov. Haslam has done to date.”

Daniel, 57, is an attorney and works in outdoor advertising. He is married and has two children. Hall has a sizable campaign fund, which he will use to defend himself. He does not personally campaign door-to-door but will send out family members and friends. Hall served eight years on the Knoxville City Council and rarely spoke or influenced decisions. It is too early to tell how competitive this race will become, but Daniel is credible as a candidate who shows confident determination. Hall has always prevailed in the past although his race against Ellen Adcock in 2005 was won by fewer than 200 votes citywide. ■ Supreme Court Justice Sharon Lee says the selection process for state Attorney General “should be transparent.” The State Constitution mandates the Supreme Court to choose the AG for an eight-year term, which will happen in September this year with the choice serving to 2022. The process has never been transparent in the past. The court meets in private and issues a statement announcing whom the five justices choose. It will be interesting to see if Justice Lee can persuade her colleagues to make it “transparent” and how the court defines “transparency.” She is a candidate for another term, which will be voted on this August.

Vols who didn’t play in NFL The approaching pro football draft has the attention of forum children playing in the sandbox. They asked each other a very heavy question. Who was the greatest Volunteer who did not play in the NFL? Easy answer: John Majors, all-American tailback, leader of the great 1956 team, rooked out of the Heisman Trophy by the Notre Dame mimeograph machine. Majors was a genuine college football player, maybe the best in America that year (Jim Brown of Syracuse might have been; Paul Hornung wasn’t). The multitalented Vol was No. 1 in the Southeastern Conference but not a match for pro requirements.

Marvin West

I remember him in geography class as just one of the boys, 5-11 and maybe 170 with a letter sweater, crew cut and skinny legs. On the gridiron, he was all-around amazing, fast enough, smart, balanced and shifty. Would-be tacklers took dead aim, but a surprising few landed direct hits. Some would have missed if they had been playing tag. Majors was an actual tri-

ple threat or maybe quadruple. As a senior, he completed 61 percent of his passes, followed blockers smartly for more than five yards per carry and punted for a 43yard average. When asked to play defense, he was a very capable safety. In addition to all that, he could think on the job. His coach, Bowden Wyatt, called him a coach on the field. Majors played briefly for the Montreal Alouettes in the Canadian League ($1,000 signing bonus, $10,000 salary). A shoulder injury encouraged him to seek other employment. Condredge Holloway, exciting quarterback, the Artful Dodger, was a 12thround choice of the New

England Patriots. They projected him as a defensive back. He chose the wideopen Canadian game, Ottawa and Toronto, and became a legend. Larry Seivers, wide receiver, was a Tennessee allAmerican who caught everything he could reach. Some receptions defied description. Seattle drafted him in the fourth round but bad things happened. A shoulder injury cost vital practice time. The Seahawks gave up. Tampa Bay took a little look and sent him packing. Next stop was Philadelphia – almost but not quite. NFL people never forget great hands, even if great speed is missing. The next summer, Larry was in-

vited to Green Bay’s training camp. Coach Bart Starr promised an opportunity. All Larry got was mileage. He didn’t drop a single pass in drills and never had one thrown toward him in a game. He was on the field for five plays during the entire exhibition season. Jackie Walker was a brilliant linebacker, a fierce hitter, intuitive and very quick. He returned five interceptions for touchdowns. By college and NFL standards, he was undersized at 188. There was talk that he might switch to strong safety. Nothing happened. Many other great Volunteers didn’t make it. Chip Kell, one of the most powerful blockers ever in orange, was a 17th-round pick of the San Diego Chargers. The all-American center played a few minutes for the

Patti Jane Lay wants to give back By Betsy Pickle A Knoxville native, Patti Jane Lay earned her bachelor’s degree from Emory University in Atlanta. She graduated from the University of Tennessee College of Law in 1979 and has 34 years of trial experience. She also has been a mediator in family law and general civil cases since 1996 and a special master in the 4th Circuit Court for about 12 years. Lay has earned the endorsement of current 4th Circuit Judge Bill Swann, who is retiring after 32 years on the bench. Lay respects Swann, whom she describes as “a brilliant man,” and says he benefited Knox County by creating his “special master” program, in which volunteer attorneys were vetted to take on some duties of the court. “It did not cost the taxpayers a penny because the

attorneys were asked to volunteer, which I did for 12 years,” she says. “It kept the high volume of cases moving without delay.” The caseload in 4th Circuit is staggering. Last year, the 1st Circuit Court heard 785 cases. By comparison, “Judge Swann disposed of 4,400 cases.” She says there is a misconception that Knox County has a higher number of orders of protection issued than other major cities in the state. “The reality is, Nashville and Memphis have as many as or more than Knox County, it’s just the recordkeeping is not as good because the majority of their orders of protection go through a non-court of records,” she says. Lay has her own ideas about making the 4th Circuit Court more dexterous in serving Knox County. They include:

■ Improving the screening process for orders of pr ote c t ion “on the front end.” She says she has talked with the Family Justice Center about coPatti Jane Lay ord i nat i ng that effort. ■ Changing the court’s schedule so that there’s not such a crush on Thursdays. “Attorneys think it’s a circus atmosphere. It’s just too many unhappy people in the same spot at one time. My proposal would be to have a morning and an afternoon docket and also hear orders of protection on motion day (currently Wednesday). ■ Making use of the compliance-review officer funded by the sheriff’s office. “That would free up

some court time.” ■ Redesigning mediation and parenting-course schedules. Swann requires four mediations. Lay would reduce that to two in noncontested custody cases. Lay says she’s running for judge because she’s at a time in her life when she can “focus on giving back” to the community. “An effective leader is a good listener. I am a good listener and want to take ideas from all people that come before the court before making final decisions.” Greg McMillan, an attorney in private practice, is also a candidate in the GOP primary. He has taken issue with Swann on several matters, as outlined in a previous story about this race. Early voting runs through Thursday, May 1, with the primary election on Tuesday, May 6.

Blessed work For God is not unjust; he will not overlook your work and the love that you showed for his sake in serving the saints, as you still do. And we want each one of you to show the same diligence so as to realize the full assurance of hope to the very end, so that you may not become sluggish, but imitators of those who through faith and patience inherit the promises. (Hebrews 6: 10-12 NRSV) The things, good Lord, that we pray for, give us the grace to labor for. (Sir Thomas More, 16th century England)

Operation Inasmuch serves Gresham Middle

First Baptist Church of Fountain City pastor Donny Wadley (center) works to help clean the grounds at Gresham Middle School, assisted by Berkley King. Photos submitted

By Ruth White Community members from area churches worked together to clean up the grounds at Gresham Middle School as part of Operation Inasmuch. The idea of the program is to move congregants out of their seats and into the streets and is based on Jesus’ saying that “inasmuch as you did it for the least of these, you did it for me.” More than 60 individuals, representing First Baptist Fountain City, Fountain City Methodist and Life Church, volunteered time to pick up litter, mow, pull weeds, rake, mulch, plant flowers and pressure-wash areas of the campus. The group also cleaned and revitalized the Gresham Gardens, which includes a walking trail, gazebo and outdoor classroom. Funding was provided by the newly formed Gresham Middle School Foundation. The Gresham PTSA helped coordinate volunteers and

required tools/supplies so the Operation Inasmuch volunteers could work. When they arrived back to school after the weekend, Gresham Middle School staff and students expressed appreciation for the work done.

Work started out as God’s second choice for His children. According to Scripture, God’s original intent was Eden: beauty and plenty and leisure. Work came as the direct result of human disobedience. Some folks still perceive work as punishment. It is true that slavery exists in the world, and that inhumane workplaces still abound. There are others, though, who find achievement, growth and meaning as they serve a purpose larger than themselves. There are all kinds of workers: those who would rather be a large cog in a small wheel, and conversely, those who want to be a small cog in a huge wheel. There are those, sadly, who don’t want to be part of any wheel, and, even though they are able, choose not to work at all. I have the feeling, however, that Sir Thomas More was not talking about laboring just for wages. Knowing something about the man – who is one of my heroes – leads me to believe that he was willing to labor for values. All of which begs the question: What are we willing to labor for? Certainly, I would hope, we are willing to labor for our living. This, however, is a question that reaches far beyond the workplace. It is a life

question, and the answer to it says much about who we are and what we treasure. What about issues? Justice? Fairness? Equality? Peace? Are we willing to stand for those, much less labor for them? Or do we just talk about them? This is where talk is certainly all too cheap. Sir Thomas gave up his life rather than compromise his convictions. He was beheaded because he refused to “go along” with something he believed to be wrong. He was later canonized for his stance and became Saint Thomas More. We most likely will never be asked to take such a stand, for which I am cravenly grateful. Even so, we are fortunate to have a long line of saints and martyrs to challenge us to be more faithful, to be more courageous, and to be more than we think we can be. Even if our only contribution is the patient, faithful, unrecognized, unheralded, quiet work we have done, we, too, can inherit the promises. It is blessed work. It is enough.

Bariatric Surgery

Gives Oak Ridge woman new lease on life For Gretchen Longcoy of Oak Ridge, life has begun anew at 50. Longcoy is embracing passing the half-century mark and enjoying a transformation in her body and health. The catalyst for her new vitality? Bariatric surgery. Since undergoing surgical weight loss surgery in 2012 with Dr. Stephen Boyce of New Life Center for Bariatric Surgery, Longcoy has shed more than 100 pounds and changed her life. “This was a life-saving procedure for me,” says Longcoy, a Realtor Dr. Stephen with Realty Executives. Boyce, Bariatric “After years and years Surgeon of struggling with my weight and other health problems, I have a new lease on life, after 50.” Longcoy says she has always been heavy, attending her first Weight Watchers meeting when she was in the fifth grade. But, she wasn’t obese until she got pregnant with her first child. “I gained 40 pounds, then nine months later I got pregnant again. With the second baby I gained 60 more pounds,” explains Longcoy. Over the next several years, subsequent back and foot surgeries compounded her weight gain and limited Longcoy’s mobility. “Even walking up stairs was difficult. I had high blood pressure, high cholesterol, sleep apnea and was pre-diabetic,” she remembers. Longcoy considered bariatric surgery. Although many insurance companies cover the procedure, Longcoy’s did not, so she dismissed the idea. But a trip to Dollywood with her sister changed her mind. “At Dollywood I had trouble fitting on a ride. It was so embarrassing,” remembers Longcoy. “That night my sister expressed concern about my health and encouraged me to undergo bariatric surgery. She said, ‘You’re worth it. This will extend your life.’” Longcoy’s husband agreed. She selected Dr. Stephen Boyce of New Life Center for Bariatric Surgery to perform Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, which reroutes the intestine into a new, smaller stomach pouch. “It was important to me to go to a Center

of Excellence that specialized in bariatric surgeries,” says Longcoy. “I chose Dr. Boyce because of his experience. He was a Godsend!” In the 2 years since the surgery, Longcoy has shed over 100 pounds, but more importantly, has changed the way she eats and lives. “People who think weight loss surgery is an easy way out are wrong. It’s a tool to help you change your life, but you have to be committed to making better choices for your body,” states Longcoy. Longcoy now bikes and swims, and is healthier than ever. “It’s a new beginning. It’s transformed my relationship with my husband and myself,” smiles Longcoy. “I tell people ‘If you’re considering bariatric surgery, don’t let anything stop you. You deserve it, your life and health are worth it!’” For more information about surgical weight loss options, visit

Speaking of his current crew, he enthuses, “I have fantastic players who keep coming back for every show – I’m so grateful to work with them.� For this production, there are 14 musicians, three of them being keyboard/synthesizer players who must produce a variety of sounds through a system of numerous “patches,� or electronic samplings, that can convey anything from classic orches-

tral instruments to animal noises and sound effects. “I missed the Big Ears Festival because I spent the whole weekend setting up the three keyboards for ‘Spamalot!’� laughs Michael Ponder, 16-year veteran sound supervisor for CBT. Acoustic instruments include trumpets, French horn, trombone, violin, string bass, guitar, drums and a variety of woodwinds – the latter played by only two performers. One of them is Sheryl Howard, widely known in the area as a multi-instrumentalist who can do it all – composing, arranging, singing, playing, directing. Howard, who is music director at Trinity United Methodist Church, is greatly

enjoying this production and especially likes “The Song That Goes Like This,� which is a satirical (and hysterically funny) take on the typical Broadway power ballad. Another widely known “Spamalot� musician is Melony Dodson, whom you can hear weekdays as host/producer of WUOT’s “Morning Concert.� She’s also a choral accompanist for the UT music department, and pianist at Faith United Methodist Church on Dry Gap Pike. “This is one of the ‘funnest’ shows I’ve ever seen or played. It’s truly hilarious, and it has really great music. And this band is totally nailing it! “My favorite song to play is probably ‘Find Your Grail.’ It’s just fun!� Silver-Alford likes “Knights of the Round Table,� the first big splashy production number in the show. The song is familiar to any Monty Python fan who’s seen the movie “Monty Py-

thon and the Holy Grail,� but “Spamalot� kicks it up quite a few notches. “And of course there’s the great ‘soft shoe’ number, ‘Always Look on the Bright Side of Life,’� he says. “It sounds like a song we’ve all known forever – like an old vaudeville song from the 1920s.� The song was written for the 1979 movie “Life of Brian� and did indeed instantly have that “where have I heard it before?� quality. Dodson allows that, for such an outrageous show, the rehearsal process has been fairly smooth and typical. “Except I get to make cow sounds with the keyboard,� she grins. “That’s pretty fun!� Clarence Brown Theatre’s production of “Monty Python’s Spamalot� runs through Sunday, May 11.

Lula Mae Winegar parties for 90th Lula Mae Myers Winegar, born April 12, 1924, in Knoxville, turned 90, and I had the privilege of being invited to her birthday party held at Church of the Good Shepherd on Jacksboro Pike. Lula Mae spent most of her adult life in Fountain City on Eldridge Road and then on Fulton Drive. Quite a crowd showed up – young and old – for the birthday supper topped off with a big birthday cake, the center of which featured a picture of Lula at age 5. Lula Mae met Bob Winegar as a teenager and married him several years later.

Bonnie Peters

Birthday cake shows picture of Lula Mae at age 5.

The children are Judy Winegar Goans and Elizabeth Winegar Hardin. Judy and her husband, Dr. Ronald Goans, are parents of two sons, Ron Jr. and Robert Goans of Clinton. Elizabeth and husband Dave Hardin are parents of 13-year-old Luke Hardin. Elizabeth and her family live at Midlothian, Va.,

Lula Mae still lives on her own with minor assistance from her family. Daughter Judy, who now lives next door in Clinton and is an internationally known patent attorney, spoke about the events of 1924 – the year of Lula Mae’s birth. She noted that her mother shared the feast day of one pope and the birthday of two monks, two bishops and a serial killer. President Roosevelt

where Dave teaches historical geography at Longwood University and Elizabeth chairs the local Democratic committee. Candi Rinehart brought her mother, Carla Fitch from Frankfort, Ky., for the party. Lula Mae and Carla became friends when their late husbands worked for Job Corps at Pine Knot, Ky. The families have remained friends for many years.

Mary Winegar Petree and Lula Mae Myers Winegar, who share the same birthday. died April 12, 1945. Beside Lula Mae at the head table was Mary Winegar Petree, who shares the same birth year as her sister-in-law. She was also joined by many longtime members of her Fountain City United Methodist Christian Fellowship Sunday school class, which was formed shortly after WWII for young married couples. Their teacher, the Rev. Dan Kelly, shared some funny memories of her. Born to John C. and Lula Crane Myers, she grew up in the Mechanicsville area of Knoxville, within walking distance of the Southern Railway Depot, where her father was a flagman and later a conductor. Lula Mae attended Moses School and Boyd Junior High School. She and her parents moved to the outskirts of Lenoir City where Lula Mae attended Lenoir City High School and the girl from the city joined 4H and raised chickens. She also taught a children’s Sunday School class at Martel Methodist Church. When Lula Mae was 16, she and her parents moved to 3rd Avenue, now Midlake Drive, in Fountain City, where she enrolled at Central High School and joined Fountain City Methodist, where the Rev. T. Paul Simms was minister. She was very industrious and worked in the high school cafeteria and held part-time jobs as a sales clerk at Kress on Gay Street and waited tables at Kay’s Ice Cream in Fountain City, always contributing to the family income. This move brought her in contact with another industrious Fountain Citian, recent CHS graduate Bob Winegar, the son of Franklin “Weenie� and Beulah Winegar, who were building a house next door to the Myers family. Lula Mae graduated from CHS in 1943 and immediately went to work for Southern Bell as a telephone

operator. Bob and Lula Mae corresponded during the war, and when he returned from active duty, they began dating. They were married Sept. 11, 1948. Daughter Judy arrived a little over a year later. Bob was called up for active duty during the Korean War, and the family moved several times during the ’50s with postings in Fort Sill, Okla., Fort Polk, La., and Fort Hood, Texas. Lula Mae continued to work as a telephone operator. Lula Mae always wanted to get her college education, and she began attending UT in the late ’50s. The birth of daughter Elizabeth in 1961 put that on hold. She began taking noncredit photography classes at UT in the mid ’70s and became accomplished as a photographer and skilled in darkroom techniques. She then re-enrolled at UT and completed her degree in elementary education in 1978. She did her student teaching at Shannondale Elementary under the late Myona Winget. She taught briefly in a private school and worked many years as a substitute teacher with the Knoxville and Knox County schools. Although Lula Mae now lives in Clinton, she still maintains her Fountain City ties as well as keeping up with her three grandsons. Party guests included: Mary Lou Jones, the Rev. Dr. Charles Fels, the Rev. Dr. Susan Sgarlat, Clifford and Ruby Hsieh, the Rev. Dr. Hen Swann and Sharon Swann, Fred Harrel and Dr. Elizabeth Harrel, Wanda and Jim Pinkerton, June Goforth, Lucy Eldridge, David Smith, Lee Ann Johnson, Ron Webster, Dr. Ruthie McCleod and her mother, Ruth Sloan, Roslyn Yentze, the Rev. Dan Kelly, Melinda Davis, Polly Kelly, Mac English, Charles and Kathy Harrington and family, and Armitage and Eileen Smith.

Dean Roslyn Tillman gets award

Come to the opening reception of a new fine art exhibit – “Impressions of Color from Paris, Italy and the Loire Valley” – premiering original oil paintings by Aleex Conner, local Impressionist, 5-9 p.m. Friday, May 2, at the Plum Gallery. Conner’s work is in private collections throughout the U.S. and Europe, and her original oils have been exhibited in Giverny, France (home of Monet’s Gardens), Northern Italy and Tuscany. One of her limited-edition prints, “Suffrage on Market Square,” is part of the historical exhibit of art and artifacts at the General Federation of Women’s Clubs History and Resource Center in Washington, D.C. With Monet as inspiration, Conner fills her oil paintings with the effect of dancing lights. Says Conner, “I want to awaken the inner feelings and emotions of those viewing my paintings, bringing picturesque scenes to life with color and movement.” The Plum Gallery, 5609 Kingston Pike in Bearden, offers a wide diversity of fine art such as jewelry, tex-

News from Angelic Ministries

By Bonny C. Millard

William Cutshall describes his job as â&#x20AC;&#x153;whatever is needed.â&#x20AC;? Photo by Nancy Whittaker

Angelic Ministries changes lives By Nancy Whittaker Angelic Ministries and the people who make this ministry so special never cease to amaze me. Recently, I spoke with William Cutshall. William is the assistant to Pastor Tony Earl. He hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t always been a fulltime volunteer. William was with the Knox County Sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Office for years and thought this would continue to be his lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s career. All of that changed one day in his garage. He just felt something was missing in his life and started praying. William says he had no idea his life would change so drastically. Cutshall and his family lived â&#x20AC;&#x153;out in the countryâ&#x20AC;? and thought that is where they belonged. His wife was a school teacher. But then he says, â&#x20AC;&#x153;God had a different path he wanted me to take.â&#x20AC;? William quit his job and started setting up small events where he could minister to the homeless. This is when he first saw the COW bus. Angelic Ministries sends out a â&#x20AC;&#x153;Church on Wheelsâ&#x20AC;? bus to provide transportation to people who want to attend their ministryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s services. It didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t take long for William to k now that Angelic

Ministries was his calling. Now William, his wife and kids live in the innercity, he is a full-time volunteer and his wife tutors â&#x20AC;&#x201C; and he says they have never been happier. When asked if he has any regrets, he couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t say â&#x20AC;&#x153;NOâ&#x20AC;? fast enough. He says Angelic is where he belongs. He beams as he talks about the people he is helping. Angelic provides all basic items needed by people who are in crisis. The people who come to Angelic are described as â&#x20AC;&#x153;the working poorâ&#x20AC;? and are referred by other agencies in town. Donations can be dropped off at their headquarters â&#x20AC;&#x201C; the former Merita Bread building at 1218 N. Central â&#x20AC;&#x201C; or large items can be picked up. To volunteer or donate, contact Angelic Ministries at 523-8884 or check out the website at

Storied University of Tennessee former football head coach and player Johnny Majors credits his father with teaching him the fundamentals of playing the game, which led to his success on the field. Majors spoke recently to the Rotary Club of Farragut about his time both as a player and coach. He also reminisced about his father, Shirley Inman Majors, and his brother, Joe. Former UT linebacker Keith DeLong, who went on to play for the San Francisco 49ers, was there to listen to his former coach. DeLong played in the midto-late 1980s, and the pair have been friends since that time. Majors, head football coach at UT from 1977-1992, also served as head coach at

the University of Pittsburgh and Iowa State University during his lengthy career. His list of accolades include 1985 SEC Coach of the Year, a 1976 national championship at Pitt where he was twice named National Coach of the Year and Big 8 Coach of the Year. While a player at UT in the 1950s, Majors was named All-SEC football tailback, SEC Player of the Year and Heisman Trophy runner up in 1956. Majors talked about his early years of growing up in Lynchburg, where his father started coaching football at the county high school in 1944. While Majors was in high school, his father was hired to start the football program at Huntland High School. Majors said he and his brothers had to earn a

spot on the team, and their father expected them to do their best. Majors said he always played football with pride and enthusiasm and an attitude of never giving up. His father taught Majors â&#x20AC;&#x153;how to play the game right.â&#x20AC;? As a coach, Majors again took lessons from his father and incorporated those into his own coaching style. Majors said he always remained committed to his players and preached â&#x20AC;&#x153;character above all else.â&#x20AC;? The more character his players possessed, the better they played, he said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Character is what weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re made of; reputation is what people think we are,â&#x20AC;? he said, adding that he liked to recruit character. Majors opened his talk with memories of his fam-

Johnny Majors ily, especially his brother Joe. Majors, the oldest child of five boys and one girl, said Joe, the second oldest, was born on Christmas Day in 1936. Joe Majors died seven years ago, and Majors told the group he still misses his best friend for life and â&#x20AC;&#x153;greatest Christmas gift.â&#x20AC;?

This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s event, with cook-off teams from across the country competing for $10,000 in prize money,

â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;Candy Ladyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; finds help for swallowing problems When Dorothy Robbins of Sevierville visits Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, she usually brings a box of fresh peanut brittle or assorted ďŹ&#x201A;avors of tafďŹ es with her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They call me the Candy Lady,â&#x20AC;? said Robbins, 73. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve worked 40 years at the candy shop (Ole Smokey Candy Kitchen) in Gatlinburg. So I make a variety and take it to them. Dr. Jackson loves peanut brittle, so I always take him some.â&#x20AC;? Robbins tells a funny but harrowing story about the time in October 2011 when a 200-pound bear broke into the shop at night. Robbins and a coworker found him in the morning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There was a hole in the glass door and pecans everywhere,â&#x20AC;? Robbins recalled. The women called the police, who chased the bear out of the shop and right past Robbins. Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency ofďŹ cials tried to trap him in the days

following, with no success. The incident made the news and can still be seen on YouTube. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I said we have the sweetest bear in town!â&#x20AC;? said Robbins. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He was the smartest, too â&#x20AC;&#x201C; he picked our candy shop! And they never did catch him.â&#x20AC;? But that wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the ďŹ rst frightening experience for Robbins. In 1989, she successfully battled Hodgkinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lymphoma, undergoing 40 radiation treatments at Fort Sanders Regional. The treatments eliminated the cancer, but subsequent scarring from chest radiation narrowed her esophagus to the point where she couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t eat without food getting caught. A narrowed esophagus can also be the result of acid reďŹ&#x201A;ux disease, a common ailment. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s very frightening,â&#x20AC;? Robbins said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People who have not had it happen to them donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know.â&#x20AC;?

Any food could get stuck in Robbinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; esophagus for days, especially foods like chicken or beef, she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I couldnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t swallow anything else either, even saliva,â&#x20AC;? she added. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a scary thought when nothing will go down.â&#x20AC;? Robbins lived with the condition for many years. But about ďŹ ve years ago, she was referred to Dr. Mark Jackson, a gastroenterologist with Fort Sanders Regional. Jackson told Robbins he could â&#x20AC;&#x153;stretchâ&#x20AC;? her esophagus to help her swallow better. With Robbins under anesthesia, Jackson inserted an endoscope â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a tiny lighted video camera â&#x20AC;&#x201C; down her throat. He then used slender instruments to expand and stretch the narrow places. The procedure made a difference immediately, Robbins said, and she now has the treatment on a regular

Bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s digestive train can be derailed When your co-worker phones the ofďŹ ce saying he or she has â&#x20AC;&#x153;stomach ďŹ&#x201A;u,â&#x20AC;? donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t believe it. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s because the vomiting and diarrhea associated with the condition probably has nothing to do with the ďŹ&#x201A;u â&#x20AC;&#x201C; itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more likely to be gastroenteritis, one of the more common ailments that can go wrong with the super-sophisticated human plumbing we call the digestive system. Dr. Muhammed The mouth, Iqbal, Gastroenteresophagus, stomach, ologist large and small intestines, and anus are all part of the digestive system, with the tongue, salivary glands, pancreas, liver and gallbladder also pitching in. Even nerves and blood play a major role in the digestive process. With so many body parts working together just to process that sausage biscuit you had for breakfast, it isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t surprising that sometimes things go wrong. In fact, an estimated 60 to 70 million Americans are affected by one digestive disease or another each year, resulting in 48.3 million visits to the doctor, 21.7 million hospitalizations and almost a quarter million deaths. Here are a few common conditions: â&#x2013; Gastroenteritis â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Often called â&#x20AC;&#x153;stomach ďŹ&#x201A;u,â&#x20AC;? itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s inďŹ&#x201A;ammation of the small intestine caused by viruses, bacteria or parasites. â&#x2013;  Gastroesophageal ReďŹ&#x201A;ux Disease (GERD) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; More commonly known as heartburn, symptoms occur when the stomach contents back up into the esophagus. Occasional GERD doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually indicate a problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s persistent, if you have difďŹ culty or if you have weight loss, it needs to be evaluated,â&#x20AC;? said Dr. Mu-

hammed Iqbal, gastroenterologist with Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center. GERD can sometimes be a symptom of other conditions such as asthma, esophageal cancer or a precancerous condition called Barrettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s esophagus. â&#x2013; Constipation â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Americans spend $725 million a year on laxatives, trying to facilitate a bowel movement. â&#x2013;  Diarrhea â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Constipationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s â&#x20AC;&#x153;evil twinâ&#x20AC;? causes repeated trips to the bathroom. Usually diarrhea is brought on by mild infections of the colon or small intestine. â&#x2013;  Irritable Bowel Syndrome (IBS) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; IBS is an intestinal disorder that causes abdominal pain, cramping or bloating and diarrhea or constipation. â&#x2013;  InďŹ&#x201A;ammatory Bowel Disease (IBD) â&#x20AC;&#x201C; Another name for either Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease or ulcertative colitis. The disease stems from inďŹ&#x201A;ammation of the colon. â&#x2013;  Diverticular disease â&#x20AC;&#x201C;The colon becomes weakened and pouches form along its surface. The pouches can collect food and become infected, resulting in pain and tenderness in the lower abdomen. â&#x2013;  Colorectal cancer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; The digestive system is home to more cancers and causes more cancer mortalities than any other organ system in the body. Colon cancer affects more than 100,000 Americans each year. The good news is that most colon cancer is preventable through regular screening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Colon cancer deaths have decreased because there is effective screening and better treatments. Pre-cancerous polyps (growths that can be precursors to colon cancer) can be completely and safely removed during colonoscopy,â&#x20AC;? Iqbal says, adding that the most important thing to remember is that â&#x20AC;&#x153;colonoscopy saves lives.â&#x20AC;? If you have digestive discomfort or difďŹ culties, or symptoms that may be caused by the conditions listed above, call 865-541-4280 or go to

A variety of tests are available to help gastroenterologists (specialists in digestive disorders) diagnose and treat the cause of â&#x20AC;&#x153;GI blues.â&#x20AC;? The Fort Sanders Center for Digestive Health has gastroenterologists Richard Cohn, MD; Jeffrey Brown, MD; Mark Jackson, MD; Muhammed Iqbal, MD; and Robert Pollack, MD, who offer a variety of diagnostic procedures, inDr. Mark Jackson, Gastroenterologist cluding the following:

Colonoscopy Colonoscopy is the examination of the entire colon (large intestine) to look for early signs of colon cancer (polyps). Usually an outpatient procedure, colonoscopy is performed by inserting a ďŹ&#x201A;exible lighted tube into the rectum. It requires intravenous sedation and adequate preparation to clean the colon. The exam will take about 20 minutes but can save your life. Colonoscopy screening is recommended for everyone at age 50 and every 10 years after that if the test is normal. People with a family history of colon cancer, inďŹ&#x201A;ammatory bowel disease or ulcerative colitis need to have the procedure at a younger age and more frequently. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Colon cancer can be managed, treated and cured if found early,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Jackson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The thing Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve learned over the past 25 years is the importance of getting people past the fear and embarrassment of having to go through colonoscopy. The more people we can get screened the better.â&#x20AC;?

Capsule endoscopy (â&#x20AC;&#x153;PillCamâ&#x20AC;?) This high-tech procedure uses a pill-sized video camera to view images of the small intestine, which cannot be viewed with traditional upper endoscopy or colonoscopy. The camera

takes multiple pictures of the small intestine as it passes through the bowel. The most common use is to search for causes of bleeding from the small intestine. It can also be used to test for Crohnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s disease and small bowel tumors. On the day prior to the procedure a laxative solution is given to cleanse the small intestine. The PillCam is then swallowed and passes through the digestive tract while transmitting video images to a recorder worn on the patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s belt. The test takes about eight hours.

Esophagogastroduodenoscopy (EGD) Upper GI endoscopy, sometimes called EGD, helps in diagnosing and treating esophagitis, heartburn, ulcers and bleeding. The procedure is the visual examination of the upper gastrointestinal tract using a lighted ďŹ&#x201A;exible endoscope. It is performed in an outpatient setting and utilizes intravenous sedation to relax the patient. The endoscope is inserted through the mouth into the esophagus, stomach, and upper part of the small intestine. The exam takes about 5-10 minutes.

Endoscopic Retrograde Cholangiopancreatography (ERCP) ERCP enables the physician to diagnose problems that involve the liver, gallbladder, bile ducts and pancreas. In this procedure a ďŹ&#x201A;exible lighted tube is passed through the mouth and into the stomach and upper intestine to visualize the opening to ducts from the liver and pancreas. Once identiďŹ ed, a narrow plastic tube is passed through the scope into the duct, where a dye is injected and X-rays are taken. If the exam shows a gallstone or narrowing of the ducts, specialized equipment can be used to remove the stones or relieve the obstruction. The exam takes 30-60 minutes. For more information about gastroenterology services at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center or assistance in ďŹ nding a physician, call 865-541-4280.

Here are some tips for successful showing & selling of your home. As your list agent, we can’t get you the price you want for your home unless it is in pristine move-in condition. That may mean no sticking drawers in the kitchen. No leaning fences. No rust-stained plumbing fixtures. The list can go on because buyers can get instantly turned off. 5 BIGGEST TURN-OFFS FOR HOMEBUYERS* OVERPRICING FOR THE MARKET: Overpricing your home is like trying to crash the country club without a membership. You'll be found out. If you ignored your agent's advice & listed at a higher price than recommended, you're going to get some negative feedback from buyers. The worse feedback is silence. That could include no showings & no offers. The problem with overpricing your home is that the buyers qualified for your home won't see it because they are shopping in a lower price range. The buyers who do will quickly realize that there are other homes in the same price range that offer more value. SMELLS: Smells can come from a number of sources: pets, lack of cleanliness, stale air, water damage and much more. You may not even notice it, but your agent may have hinted that something needs to be done. There's not a buyer in the world that will buy a home that smells unless they are an investor looking for a bargain. CLUTTER: Too much furniture confuses the eye; it makes it really difficult for buyers to see the actual room sizes. If the buyers can't see what they need to know, they will move on to another home, one that will allow them to walk through while focusing on their items in the home & not on just trying not to break any of yours. DEFERRED MAINTENANCE: Just like people age due to the effects of sun, wind and gravity, so do structures like your home. Your buyers want a home that has been wellmaintained. They don't want to wonder what needs to

be fixed next or how much it will cost. Many buyers will look at those obvious repairs & wonder what else needs work but is hidden to them until they would move in. DATED DÉCOR: The reason people are looking at your home instead of buying brand new is because of cost & location. Just like they want a home in good repair, they want a home that is updated. If you are leaving the updating to your buyer, they will look at calculating the costs needed to bring the house into the modern era & want to reduce what they are willing to pay you for it. In addition, many buyers can't afford to make those updates immediately & will look for a home that is already updated, meaning your home will sit on the market longer. There begins a difficult cycle. The longer it’s on the market, the less a buyer wants to offer, so your investment doesn’t profit as you had hoped. You end up stuck with an asset that isn't selling. In conclusion, the market can be a brutal mirror. Anyone who has gone through the preparations for showing a home can tell you that the less that has to happen the better. Making sure the home you are selling is in readyto-go shape only makes the whole process much more pleasant for all. *Taken from an article by Blanche Evans in Realty Times.
