Marilyn Johnson draws door prize winners from a box held by son Doug, while Bob Johnson looks on.

By Sandra Clark The number 50 was everywhere as Bob Johnson, founder of Bob Johnson Insurance Agency, came home to celebrate the 50th anniversary of the company. He and Marilyn moved to Crossville following his retirement in 1995. Son Ben said Bob retired slowly. “He showed up for two hours a week to see what’s in the refrigerator!� Bob is talking slower now, but he continues to recall the good old days while making bad old jokes. After serving in the Army, he said, he enrolled at UT and took two terms of English – Roosevelt’s and Truman’s. But back to those 50s.

Doug and Ben Johnson have grown the agency since buying it from Bob. “We’ve been so blessed in Halls that we wanted to bless the community,� said Doug. Here are their gifts: ■$5,000 to Halls Elementary School ■ $5,000 to Halls Middle School ■ $5,000 to Halls High School ■ $5,000 to the Halls Crossroads Women’s League ■ $5,000 to Knox Crusade Ministries In addition, the agency awarded a 50-inch television grand prize; the winner was police officer Brian Dow.

city can do for the lake. He talked with a stormwater engineer and wrote back: “It sounds like the biggest effort will be to fi x a leak in a berm on the North Broadway side of the lake. Fixing the leak will allow the water level to rise, which will help combat the algae growth. As you know, the shallow water is a contributing factor to the lake’s problems.

“There’s also been talk of designing and installing a pump/ aerator/circulation system, or possibly a fountain, to keep water moving better. “And there will be (manual) removal of undesirable vegetation.� He said the cleanup is not tied to the mayor’s budget request, as the work has been done in the past by Sheriff’s Office prisoners doing community service.

Momentum swings detected by early voting By Sandra Clark There’s not much to be said for early voting. It’s expensive for both taxpayers and candidates. Last week’s primary brought out about 10 percent of registered voters. It’s amazing that elections that mean so much draw so little interest.

Analysis Early voting distorts the normal campaign rhythm. All the handbooks say to build a campaign calendar backward, designing advertising and general momentum to peak on Election Day. It’s hard to sustain any level of enthusiasm over 20 days.

But early voting does enable political junkies to detect momentum swings. In the Republican Primary for sheriff, Jimmy “J.J.� Jones won handily, but early voting shows him ahead of Bobby Waggoner 60 to 32 percent. That lead slimmed to 54 to 38 percent on Election Day, indicating that Waggoner’s campaign was gaining momentum. Contrast that with the race for Criminal Court clerk where the percentages stayed virtually identical for winner Mike Hammond, Jason Hunnicutt and Steve Williams. In the close race to replace retiring Judge Bill Swann, early voting made the difference. Patti Jane Lay actually won on Election Day (50.82

to 49.18 percent), but Greg McMillan topped her in early voting. He won overall, 10,489 to 10,276. In the South Knox school board race, the numbers were consistent. But in West Knox, board chair Lynne Fugate was leaking momentum. Sally Absher gained four points, from 32 to 36 percent from early voting to Election Day, while Fugate dropped from 56 to 52.8 percent. Fugate still won, but Absher was gaining. In West Knox County, frontrunner Terry Hill stayed flat with 46 percent. But second-place finisher Sandra Rowcliffe was gaining rapidly, going from 20.8 percent in early voting to 25.5 percent on Election Day. Reckon

stopped by the celebration cookout. Other door prizes were $50 to Marco’s Pizza, $50 to Kobe’s Restaurant, and $50 to Fountain City Chick-fil-A. “We want to support and bless other local businesses,� said Doug Johnson. Ben Johnson carried on Bob’s joke tradition by announcing “iPads for everyone!� Yikes! That got everybody’s attention, so Ben brought out a package of gauze, shook loose a pad and said, “See, you hold it over one eye like this – an eye pad.� In a statement, Bob Johnson reported to the community that he loves so much: “It all began with my uncle

T.R. Harrington 60 years ago who wrote me while I was in Iceland serving in the Army. He wanted me to work with him. I told him to sign me up.� Bob worked with T.R. in Fountain City for 10 years before moving to Halls and starting a new agency. T.R.’s sons, Tommy and Charles, attended the anniversary party. “I want to thank Safeco Insurance Company. I wrote my first policy with them. Two of my friends are still with Safeco today, Fred Graves and Tommy Basler. I wrote their policy 60 years ago. “My first employee was Wilma Waggoner. She joined me in 1964 and stayed with the agency until she retired. Rhoda Whaley, the office manager, and Leeann, our underwriter, were also with me when I retired. “These three did and are doing a great job.

it was the (www.facebook.com/ sandrarowcliffe?fref=ts) song? Her gains came at the expense of third-place finisher Bradley Buchanan, who dropped from 21 percent in early voting to only 16 percent on Election Day. By Tennessee law, early voting begins 20 days before and stops five days before each election. That could easily be halved, but who’s got the political will to propose it? After all, it’s your money they’re spending, and no politician wants to be seen as anti-voting. My old friend Scott Frith says it best: “That change would save money, but it probably won’t happen. That’s the trouble with elections. They’re so darn political!�

Breakfast club salutes Johnsons

Each month the Halls Business and Professional Association meets for fellowship, networking and breakfast. This month the group stopped by Bob Johnson Insurance and got to talk with state Rep. Bill Dunn. The club honored the

agency, which is celebrating its 50th anniversary. Founder Bob Johnson was an active member of the Halls B&P, quite possibly a charter member, and was frequently master of ceremonies or main speaker at the group’s annual banquet. He pioneered the tradition of the monkey calendar, a gift for everyone at the banquet, a tradition that his sons have carried forward. Club president Bob Crye shared stories of Dunn’s sister from years ago and the laughs got louder as the tales got larger. The next Breakfast Club meeting will be at 7:30 a.m. Tuesday, June 3, place to be announced.

The carnies of Gold Medal Shows have moved on, but Knox North Lions Club members are still riding high. With the success of the spring carnival presented on the Yow property on Emory Road, president Rick Long says the club plans for this fundraiser to become an annual event. “The carnival raised more money than any other fundraiser we’ve done,” said Long. “It was a good start. With better weather and more promotion, we should double that total next year.” Locals and many folks from out of town took time to play April 30 through May 4 by visiting the event, which was reminiscent of old-time, small-town carnivals – complete with a merry-go-round, Ferris wheel, funnel cakes, corn dogs and cotton candy. A rock-climbing wall allowed children and adults to test their stamina. Guys took the opportunity to show off their strength and finesse with carnival games – all in the name of winning a stuffed toy or goldfish for their best girl. More than $2,500 was raised to enable the club to Savanah Carnes, granddaughter of Rick Carnes of Powell, apcontinue its work in pro- pears to tiptoe on the rooftops at the Knox North Lions Spring Carnival – with a little help from a bungee cord. moting healthy vision.

government City budget lacks greenway specificity As City Council reviews Mayor Rogero’s proposed 34-cent property-tax increase, several proposals merit a closer look as specifics are missing. They include the $1 million for greenway corridors and $500,000 for historic preservation. Both are laudable topics but blank checks for now.

Victor Ashe

Both are also areas where the Rogero administration has been weak if not AWOL. When I asked city spokesperson Eric Vreeland to detail the greenways that would be built, he could not answer. He said the mayor and parks director, along with the greenway commission, would decide. In other words, $1 million for yet-to-bedetermined projects in an election year. Parks Director Joe Walsh said the Mike Fowler firm had been paid $200,000 to do an assessment of greenway needs and make recommendations. He indicated conceptually that the greenways might turn out to be from the U.S. Post Office on Weisgarber Road to the Jean Teague greenway in West Hills, extending the Third Creek greenway that ends at Bearden Elementary School to Papermill and/or to Lakeshore Park and possibly from Ned McWherter Park to Ijams Nature Center. But nothing was definite. Anyone with a greenway map could figure out where new greenways should go. It is not rocket science. When asked, Walsh could not name a greenway that had been built under Mayor Rogero. The last ribbon-cutting for a citybuilt greenway was under Mayor Brown in 2011 at Papermill Road. This is a dismal record for a mayor who says she is “green.” If a greenway corridor fund is created with $1 million, at the very least it should be established by ordinance with mission and duties clearly spelled out and not left to whim and mischief. ■ Council member Nick Della Volpe got Loves Creek greenway built with help from the public service department. The half-mile trail is not paved. Walsh said construction will start within weeks on the two-mile greenway

from Buck Karnes Bridge to the Naval Station on Alcoa Highway. He acknowledged that the much-discussed First Creek greenway along Broadway has not been bid. It was announced in April 2012 and two years later has seen no visible progress. It may be the end of 2016 before it is finished. It is hard to take this $1 million greenway request very seriously when Rogero’s current greenway construction is so tardy. By not naming specific projects for greenways or historic preservation, Rogero will be given a blank check to fill in the year she is running for re-election, a campaign war chest funded by taxpayers. Della Volpe, who opposes the tax hike, should not expect any new greenways in his district. I am personally passionate about greenways. It pains me to write this column, but it pains me even more that so little has happened. It is hard to understand why the “green” mayor would not build them with enthusiasm as they routinely receive 80-plus percent approval. It could only help her re-election. ■ Knox Heritage’s city grant was cut from $21,000 to $5,000 without explanation in the mayor’s budget. Team Rogero says they are putting $850,000 into various historicpreservation projects so all should be happy if a mere $16,000 is cut. Spokesperson Jesse Mayshark says the city has a wonderful review process. Knox Heritage was not consulted on this. ■ Dave Hill, controversial and highly paid ($140,000) former city waterfront staffer (who was fired by Rogero), has been hired as Dave Hill comprehensive planning manager at MPC by his longtime golfing friend Mark Donaldson. He replaces Mike Carberry. Donaldson said Hill, who once held his job, will be paid $100,000. It is unclear if minorities or even existing staff had a chance to apply. ■ House Speaker John Boehner will attend a reception 5-7 p.m. Saturday, May 24, for U.S. Rep. Jimmy Duncan at the home of Pete and Cindi DeBusk on Cunningham Road in Halls. Boehner is third in line to the presidency.

Mike McMillan’s lonely days are over

Were the school board primary elections a referendum on Superintendent James McIntyre? Probably. And it was sort of a draw, right? Probably not. McIntyre gets to keep his school board chair, and the only challenger who supported him squeaked out a second-place finish good enough to get her into the general election, but he lost his most vocal ally, and his vice-chair failed to win an outright majority, throwing her into a general-election runoff. South Knox board member Pam Trainor lost big to school librarian Amber Rountree, despite McIntyre’s scheduling a raft of good-news announcements and events in her district. Rountree, who is smart and outspoken and won 58 percent of the vote, will quit her teaching job to become one of McIntyre’s bosses. Board chair Lynne Fugate won convincingly in the 4th District – as she should have, because this was her race to lose. Challenger Sally Absher showed herself to be a worthy campaigner, tirelessly door-knocking and deeply informed about issues. The second challenger, J. Scott Clark, stayed pretty much a cypher throughout the campaign. Both said they would not have voted to approve McIntyre’s controversial contract extension, but it would be wrong to attribute Fugate’s victory to voters’ opinion of the superintendent. Here’s why:

Betty Bean If the superintendent is popular anywhere, it’s in the upper-middle-class 4th District, and Fugate, a reliable McIntyre supporter who was active in Beardenarea schools before she ran for office, fits the establishment profile. On the other hand, Absher doesn’t. Her only past political involvement was as a member of the Tea Party, and videos of her “Agenda 21” presentations are available at computer screens near you. Maybe this wouldn’t have hurt her in a different district, and maybe given more time she can put it behind her, but for now, as one veteran pol puts it, “She couldn’t outrun her past.” The 6th District was a mixed bag for JMac. On the plus side, his two most adamant detractors, Brad Buchanan and Tamara Shepherd, didn’t make it into the runoff, and his most adamant supporter, Sandra Rowcliffe, did. She’ll take her talents into the general election against the frontrunner, Terry Hill, a former school social worker who has been milder in her criticism of the superintendent but says that things need to change. If money could buy this race, Rowcliffe would win (the pro-McIntyre businesstypes have kicked in heavily). However, Hill almost doubled Rowcliffe’s vote total, and that gap that will

Bart and Amber Rountree celebrate her election to the Board of Education with an announcement: Their first child is due Sept. 8, just a week after she is sworn in. be hard to close. Both candidates are vocal supporters of a new Hardin Valley Middle School, a tribute to the power of the Hardin Valley vote in that district. In the 1st District, vice chair Gloria Deathridge, who ticked teachers off by reminding them who they “work for” (that would be McIntyre), won a big victory, percentage-wise (46-27 percent). But in terms of raw numbers, she beat Marshall Walker by only 265 votes. That could make for a sweaty summer for both candidates. The school board has tra-

ditionally been dominated by ex-administrators and PTA moms who generally toe the administration line. This election could mark a sea change. Retired teacher Patti Lou Bounds ran unopposed, so she and Rountree were elected outright. They will join former teacher and lonely guy Mike McMillan, who is routinely on the short end of 8-1 votes. If Hill and Walker prevail, McMillan will find himself in the unaccustomed position of being the senior member of the majority.

Coming around again I’m happy to say the reports of my demise were greatly exaggerated. That’s not to say there weren’t days I thought I was dead, but it turns out I was just in Eighty Four, Pa.

Larry Van Guilder

Eighty Four is a suburb of Pittsburgh about 20 miles southwest of the home of the stalwart (though not so much lately) Steelers. Populated chiefly by deer and my ex-wife, each of whom is a strong advocate for gun control, Eighty Four is also the home of the eponymous lumber company. Despite their dislike for firearms violence, the community’s deer are a peculiarly suicidal lot. Scarcely a day passes without some

despondent deer stepping into the path of an innocent motor vehicle, leaving its family to wonder why. So, this prodigal returns to the land of more cautious deer and sometimes incautious politicians. Surveying the landscape, I can cheerfully echo Morgan Freeman’s words to Miss Daisy: ‘Things ain’t changed all that much.” Examples? Stacey Campfield adding to his lunatic legacy by drawing a parallel between Obamacare and Holocaust victims; familiar names engaging in Knox County’s tradition of musical elected offices (Hammond, Shouse, Leuthold, Briggs); the unqualified appealing to the uncaring (Michele “Placeholder” Carringer); the county where, according to Mayor Tim “Fist Bump” Burchett, less is always more. If, despite my association with known miscreants like Republicans, Democrats

and Independents, Scripps gives the thumbs up to my background investigation, I’m coming around again. There’s plenty of fodder in these parts for a political reporter, and I hold firm to Mencken’s dictum that the function of journalism is to comfort the afflicted and afflict the comfortable. That said, it’s good to be back where people bleed orange and not rust. Where else would you find 36,000 people willing to sign a petition asking for the dismissal of a college basketball coach? (I’d wager that several hundred of them may even have voted in the last election and signed their names without resorting to an “X.”) In what other municipality does the phrase “term limits” mean one thing for the voter and something entirely different for judges and officeholders? (See Jones, Witt, Jordan, et al.) Who knew the English language was rife with such

ambiguity? Where else among the vast reaches of our spacious skies and amber waves of grain would a former county executive compare the problems of a felonious senior subordinate to the sufferings of Jesus Christ? (For those with mercifully short memories, Google Ragsdale and Finch.) Yet, Knox County’s political and social ills are not so very different from those of the nation at large. We whine about tax increases to fund schools but utter nary a whimper when jails expand and police forces balloon to incarcerate the poorly educated. We want smaller government, and when governments shrink throwing more out of work we blame the government for the unemployment rate and the stagnant economy. Walt Kelly was right: “We have met the enemy, and he is us.” Yes, there’s no place like home.

The Battle of Champion Hill (May 16, 1863) HISTORY AND MYSTERIES | Dr. Jim Tumblin

S

tudents of the Civil War have debated the “What ifs?” of that war for many years and in many forums. A favorite “What if?” asks whether the South could have won the Battle of Gettysburg (7/1-3/1863) if Gen. Jeb Stuart’s Cavalry, Gen. Robert E. Lee’s “Eyes and Ears,” had been present from the first day. Historian Richard McMurry’s “What if?” asks: If Gen. Joseph Johnston and his 50,000 Confederates had properly fortified the gap at the Battle of Snake Creek Gap in North

Georgia (5/7-12/1864), could they have stymied Gen. William T. Sherman’s 100,000 Union troops early in the campaign for Atlanta and forestalled Sherman’s “March to the Sea” and his eventual capture of Savannah? Another important “What if?” occurred 151 years ago this month when Confederate Gen. John C. Pemberton was defeated by Gen. Ulysses Grant at Champion Hill, Mississippi, a prelude to the Siege of Vicksburg. Holding Vicksburg was

critical for the Confederates. Jefferson Davis said, “Vicksburg is the nail head that holds the South’s two halves together.” It blocked Union navigation of the Mississippi, controlled the mouth of the Red River and protected vital Port Hudson. It allowed Confederate access to the states west of the river upon which they depended for cattle, horses and reinforcements for their armies. Considered “The Gibraltar of the Confederacy,” Vicksburg’s natural defenses on a high bluff overlook-

ing a horseshoe-shaped bend in the river made it impossible to attack from the water. Pemberton had a garrison of 30,000 Confederate troops and mounted 172 big guns to defend his bastion. On its north and east, the Yazoo Delta, an area of 200 miles north to south and 50 miles wide, was a complex network of waterways. That untamed wilderness was difficult enough on foot but effectively impassable on horseback or for the wheeled vehicles necessary to supply an army. And, of

How will Cuonzo be remembered? I suppose Cuonzo Martin has been gone long enough to raise the question, how will he be remembered?

Marvin West

Cuonzo is a remarkable man in many ways but was never a match for Tennessee basketball needs. He was an excellent role model but calm as an undertaker, no used-car sales skills, certainly not a circus barker. He could not have escaped Bruce Pearl’s shadow. The way it all went down,

Tennessee gets paid for the fractured contract instead of having to pay for eventual termination. Cuonzo gets a nice, fresh start under more favorable circumstances – four returning starters instead of four starters gone. He now has a chance at happiness. He has found a pleasant environment in a place of enlightenment. The University of CaliforniaBerkeley sounds a little like Al Gore when it lays claims to the invention of the atomic bomb, free speech and fruit cocktail. Cal basketball is more of a social gathering, wine and cheese and smoked salmon (with PETA approval). Tennessee is far more passionate, sometimes overcooked.

I’ve been to Berkeley. Knoxville is different. How will Martin be remembered? Perhaps vaguely, with minimum emotion. His sudden departure caused no bonfires. No streets will be renamed. Without meaning to be, he was interim coach between the exciting but reckless Pearl and the enthusiastic Donnie Basketball. One of my favorite reader-writers agreed with the “no hard feelings” rhetoric but identified a potential pattern I had missed. Cuonzo did the same thing at Missouri State, three and out, depleted leftovers. The move to Tennessee was a big-league opportunity under difficult con-

ditions for four times the previous pay. The move to California, a slight downshift, might be an escape from a hot kitchen and another roster with holes. Some preachers move around to recycle sermons instead of writing new ones. Some coaches have similar tendencies. Cuonzo said the infamous BBB petition was a non-factor. That can’t be the whole truth. Even though he is tough as a coconut shell, the illogical push for Pearl had to hurt. I do believe he used criticism from fans to fuel the Vols’ late fire. I asked around, what about memories? To generalize and summarize responses, “honorable man”

course, the river itself made transporting thousands of men across its wide expanse a very imposing task. Grant made several attempts to flank Vicksburg’s defenses and to build canals to facilitate movement of troops and supplies. He was blocked by Pemberton’s counter moves and by

the pernicious terrain surrounding the city. Finally, on the dark, moonless night of April 16, 1863, Adm. David D. Porter dared to run the batteries with a fleet of 12 Union ships, losing only one of them. Now Grant had the ships south of Vicksburg

was prevalent. As coach, not much warm praise or harsh rebukes, sort of dullsville, middle-of-the-road, never connected with fans, not as bad as Alan Houston’s dad or Michael Jordan’s roommate, what was his name? A one-word answer – apathetic – said too much. Another terse response, stubborn, may be a leftover link to zones or tempo. Zo obviously taught responsibility and principles of manhood. Payback was loyalty. His players played. Upon his departure, freshmen and recruits fled the scene. Fans offered lukewarm appreciation for dignity and mild criticism of recruiting effort and miscalculations. No way to miss slow starts and better finishes. NIT flops are a threat to linger. The rout of Kentucky was a landmark. The loss to Aus-

tin Peay may never go all the way away. Based on what he stands for, I like the former coach OK and do not hold him totally responsible for what didn’t develop. He is what he was. Cuonzo LaMar Martin was precisely what Dr. Jimmy G. Cheek wanted at the time, honest. Diversity was a bonus. The chancellor, dedicated to putting the best face possible on the university, decreed there shall be no more embarrassments. Athletic director Mike Hamilton found this squeaky-clean good guy out in the valley, offered more than necessary to bring him to Rocky Top and presented him for approval. Nobody noticed that he was bland.

Come and get ’em Step down, Nobel Prize. Stand aside, Oscar. Make way for The Biscuit Sunsphere. It’s the tastiest prize worth winning, and this coming Thursday through Sunday, you’re invited to see who gets to take it home. The fifth annual International Biscuit Festival, “a celebration of that most perfect of foods – the biscuit,” is coming to downtown Knoxville. It’s a testament to the popularity of this most Southern of delicacies that the festival has expanded from its usual three days to four. The Food Network is on board, and one of its brightest stars – Tyler Florence, host of “Tyler’s Ultimate” and “The Great Food Truck Race” – will make an appearance. John Craig, a real-estate developer who has been involved in the renovation of

Champion Hill and could plan and launch the largest amphibious operation in American history up to that time. Grant’s 22,000 infantrymen laid corduroy roads and built bridges down the west side of the river as they slogged their way south through Louisiana. He would move 17,000 of those troops across the river at Bruinsburg, 40 miles south of Vicksburg, from April 20 to May 1. The 200-mile inland campaign then moved with lightning-like rapidity, reminiscent of Gen. Stonewall Jackson’s Shenandoah Valley Campaign in 1862.

Carol Zinavage

Carol’s Corner Market Square, is the “Biscuit Boss.” “One of the perks of helping to start a festival is that you get to pick your own title!” he says. “We love alliteration in naming things like ‘Biscuit Boulevard’ and ‘Biscuit Bazaar,’ so ‘Biscuit Boss’ just came naturally.” He’s especially happy because this year, beyond the food and entertainment, the event will have the added element of paying it forward. “An Evening with Tyler Florence” will not only bring the popular chef to a Knoxville

From page A-5 Grant prevailed against stiff resistance at Port Gibson (May 1) and Raymond (May 11-12) and then successfully blocked Gen. Joseph Johnston’s troops from joining Pemberton when he was defeated at Jackson (May 12-14). Proper coordination between Pemberton and Johnston could have placed Grant’s forces in a vise. Johnston could have had 15,000 defenders at his disposal but, instead, allowed Grant to burn part of the town, destroy numerous factories and cut the railroad lines connecting Jackson and Vicksburg. Grant

audience, it will also help to feed hungry kids. “As a sponsor of the Biscuit Festival, Food Network is donating $10 for every ticket sold for Tyler Florence’s show to Second Harvest’s Food for Kids program,” Craig says. “For kids who rely on school meals for their primary nutrition, summer can be a time of uncertainty and even despair,” says Jim Clayton, executive vice president of corporate social responsibility at Scripps Networks Interactive, the parent company of Food Network. Lindsey Spindle, chief brand officer for Share Our Strength, a nonprofit organization dedicated to ending childhood hunger, agrees. “The Biscuit Festival truly has become one of the best regional food festivals in the country, so we couldn’t be more pleased to be connected in this very meaningful

way,” she says on the festival’s website. A sold-out show will result in a $15,000 contribution from the Food Network. That’s more than 45,000 meals for about 600 vulnerable kids in an 18-county area. What began as a fun gathering for biscuit-loving friends and family has grown into a nationally recognized food festival. In 2012, the Southern Food Writing Conference got involved, bringing together authors, chefs, publishers, publicists and others who love Southern food and those who write about it. The event attracts around 25,000 people to the area each spring. There will be demonstrations of biscuit-making on Saturday, May 17, culminating in a biscuit-baking contest. All kinds of biscuits, “from basic to fancy,” according to Craig, will be available for sampling at the

Biscuit Boulevard Tasting Area. Tickets are $10 for five samples. Participants get to vote for their favorite. Many lighthearted competitions are scheduled, including a Biscuit Songwriting Contest and a “Miss or

had successfully divided the two Confederate armies. Pemberton’s 22,000 Confederates felt the full force of the Federal attack just two days later at Champion Hill. He held a council of war and decided to march southeast and attack the Union supply train and arriving reinforcements. The army moved out on May 15, slowed by delays for which Pemberton was responsible. By nightfall the column had moved only five miles. Grant moved to intercept Pemberton, employing the corps of Gens. James B. McPherson and John A. McClernand, while Sherman’s corps remained in Jackson. Three divisions were near Bolton on the Jackson Road,

two on the Middle Road and two on the Raymond Road when Union troops bivouacked on the 15th. Pemberton pickets clashed with Grant’s approaching columns on the morning of May 16, and Pemberton issued orders to countermarch through Edwards and out the Brownsville Road, but he was too late. McPherson had advanced from Bolton and was nearing Champion Hill, which stood at an elevation of 75 feet above the flatlands surrounding it. To meet this threat, Pemberton deployed the three brigades of Gens. Stevenson, Bowen and Loring fronted to the southeast. Grant mounted his attack

at 10:30 a.m. During the intense fighting, Champion Hill and the crossroads changed hands three times. The Confederates were outgeneraled, and by 5 p.m. they were fleeing across Baker’s Creek, leaving 27 cannons and hundreds of prisoners on the field. They attempted a stand at Big Black River the next day but were again defeated and fled into the defenses of Vicksburg, where a 47-day siege resulted in Pemberton’s surrender to Grant on the nation’s birthday, July 4, 1863. Many months would pass and many more lives would be lost between that fateful day at Champion Hill, the fall of Richmond and the final surrender at Appomat-

Mr. Biscuit Pageant,” in which “only the most poised, most talented, the most Biscuity can earn the coveted title of Miss and Mr. Biscuit,” says the website. The entrants will be judged on “Biscuit Making Fashion, Poise and a Biscuit-related Talent.” Mast General Store sponsors this grin-inducing event.

“An Evening with Tyler Florence,” scheduled for 8 p.m. Sunday, May 18, at the Tennessee Theatre, will cap off four days of biscuit-related fun. A free and open-tothe-public event, The Great Food Truck Extravaganza, will precede the show from 6 to 8 p.m. Some of the best food trucks in the state will be there selling their scrumptious wares.

tox (4/12/1865). The eminent historian J.F.C. Fuller would say, “The drums of Champion Hill sounded the doom of Richmond.” “What if?” Grant had lost at Champion Hill and thus failed to capture Vicksburg? Would President Lincoln have called a losing general east to become general-inchief of the Union armies and to eventually defeat Gen. Robert E. Lee, a task in which several preceding commanding generals had failed? In his landmark speech in 1858, Lincoln had stated, “A house divided against itself cannot stand.” Could a divided nation have become the leader of the free world?

Randy White talks with children gathered during a mission trip to Salinas Grande.

Investing in people By Ruth White While Tim Parker sat on the front porch of his Strawberry Plains home, God spoke to him in a big way. Parker, now pastor at CrossPoint Church, has a heart for people. He knew that he wanted to invest in the lives of others but wasn’t sure where he was being led until that day on

his porch. “I was reading an article on missions in Central America and the challenges for them,” he said. “As I removed the band from a cigar I was smoking, I noticed that it was handmade in Nicaragua.” He had been praying about missions and felt at peace as he sat on his porch that

In the land of Moab In the days when the judges ruled, there was a famine in the land, and a certain man of Bethlehem in Judah went to live in the country of Moab, he and his wife and two sons. The name of the man was Elimelech and the name of his wife Naomi, and the names of his two sons were Mahlon and Chilion; they were Ephrathites from Bethlehem in Judah. They went into the country of Moab and remained there. But Elimelech, the husband of Naomi, died, and she was left with her two sons. These took Moabite wives; the name of the one was Orpah and the name of the other Ruth. When they had lived there about 10 years, both Mahlon and Chilion also died, so that the woman was left without her two sons and her husband. (Ruth 1: 1-5 NRSV) It is not often in Scripture that a woman’s story is told. The book of Ruth in the Old Testament is an exception: It is the story of two women who became family by marriage, and who became im-

mortal in the annals of family by faithfulness. This story has been much on my mind because I recently visited Moab, Utah. To the best of my knowledge, it is the only other Moab in

of time in Salinas Grande, Nicaragua, organizing feeding programs, working with women through a sewing ministry and helping to construct stable living areas. This ministry was exactly what Parker wanted to become involved with – working in the trenches to support churches that were there doing good works. Four years ago, the first mission team from CrossPoint Church headed to Nicaragua. The team included just three members, Parker, Lambdin and Randy White. The trio served meals to children, began construction on a home for a local pastor and preached the Gospel. Each year a team returns to Nicaragua, and the ministry grows in many ways. Church members sewed dresses that were sent to the girls in the area. A sewing ministry has been established, and women in the community make dresses for the children and to sell. The group has participated in Vacation Bible School during the week and this coming summer will participate in a food box ministry that will allow them to meet families, help with needs

and minister. When asked why they travel across the country to minister, Parker replied, “We are called to go and share the Gospel. We start where we are and move from there.” The church is involved lo-

cally with Angelic Ministries. CrossPoint Church is hosting a rummage sale to help send a mission team to Nicaragua this summer. The event will be held 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. Friday and Saturday, May 16-17, at the church, 2000 Loves Creek Road.

rugged way, with a harsh, unforgiving climate. Such a landscape can be intimidating, and, at the same time, inspiring. Moab, Utah, has been inhabited for thousands of years, dating back to the Paleo-Indians, who hunted and survived on mastodons and mammoths. They were followed by the Anasazi and the Fremont, who lived in widespread areas but overlapped at Moab. I was trying hard not to blink as we drove through this landscape. I saw a red rock cliff off to the east and stared at it, trying to determine if what I was seeing was shadow or painting. I ultimately realized that it was painting: what appeared to be 20-foot-tall symbols or letters painted

onto the red rock. Being a citizen of the 21st century, my first thought was, “Graffiti! How obnoxious!” I looked again and knew that the figures I saw were foreign to me – letters from a lost people, a lost culture, a lost world – but a fragment of history inscribed by people who, like me, had appreciated the wonder of that valley, and left their mark behind. What it communicated? I have no idea. It could be the Anasazi version of “Kilroy was here!” Or it could have been a deeply religious symbol. I don’t know. What I do know is that the Anasazi (or perhaps the Fremont) reached out to me across the millennia and touched my heart. They – those fathers

and mothers of another age, another world – learned how to live in this world, and left their mark on it. They kept records, they created art, they wrote! They left something that has remained to remind me, and all of us, that the world is full of wonder and that the past is never over. In fact, it isn’t even past. And, like Naomi and Ruth, the story of their existence – the existence of those mothers and fathers, sons and daughters – helps inform and shape who we are today. I am reminded of the smallness of each of us, and yet, at the same time, we are all sisters and brothers in this vast family of God, who is both Father and Mother to us.

A-8 • MAY 12, 2014 • HALLS/FOUNTAIN CITY Shopper news Jacob Anderson was presented the Leadership Award for his display of a high degree of leadership and his commitment to the JROTC program. He was given the award for being the top basic cadet the spring semester.

Gibbs High honors JROTC members By Ruth White Gibbs High School’s Junior ROTC program honored cadets in a ceremony last week. Dr. Richard Briggs was guest speaker at the event. Briggs graduated from the University of Kentucky College of Medicine with highest honors and immediately entered active military service with the U.S. Army. The Cadet of the Semester is an honor bestowed upon a basic and advanced cadet for each semester. Recipients were recognized for academic and leadership development of cadets. Receiving the award were basic cadet Cailey Griffin (fall), advanced cadet Ashley Weaver (fall), basic cadet Ezekiel Flatford (spring) and advanced cadet Serina Long (spring). Joey Deaver was presented the Reserve Enlisted Association Award. The award is given to an enlisted cadet in good standing, of high moral character and who shows evidence of a high order of loyalty to the unit. Brad Sumpter received the Reserve Officers Association Award, which complements the Reserve Enlisted award. The Sons of the American Revolution presented Jared Burkhart an award for his commitment and courage, as well as willingness to excel and develop potential. The Academic Excellence Award is presented each semester to a basic and an advanced cadet for scholastic excellence in both JROTC grades and academ-

ics overall. Receiving the award were David Feier and Reese Bunch (basic) and Chris Hammonds and Ryan Knauss (advanced). Receiving the Leadership Award for cadets showing a high degree of leadership were Jordan Hood and Jacob Anderson (basic) and Kelli Bailey and Adriana Knisley (advanced).

Other award recipients included General Military Excellence to Samantha Owens; Academic Excellence to Robbie Kincaid; the Military Order of the World Wars to Ryan Kopp; and the Association of United States Army award to Jordan Webb. The highest award Gibbs High can bestow upon a cadet is the Distinguished Cadet award. It is given for service above and beyond and entails service to school and community, leadership, academics and initiative. This year’s recipient was Allie Traylor. Traylor also received the Clinard Loveday trophy for Outstanding Cadet, given each year to honor a single cadet who has done the most for the school. To be selected for the award the recipient must be held in high esteem by fellow cadets, be nominated by peer and selected by the JROTC department.

Shelby Griffin was given the Superior Cadet award for learning education training (LET) level IV. The selected cadet must be in the top 25% of the JROTC class and top 50% of the academic class. Adriana Knisley was given the Leadership Award for being the advanced cadet for the spring semester. Dr. Richard Briggs presents Allie Traylor with the Distinguished Cadet Award. This is the highest award bestowed and is given for service above and beyond what may be normally expected of JROTC cadets. It entails service to school and community, leadership, academics, extracurricular activities and initiative. Traylor also received the Clinard Loveday Trophy given to one outstanding cadet. The trophy honors a single cadet who has done the most for Gibbs High and is placed in the JROTC area to remind all cadets of the value of leadership, duty, respect, selfless service, honor, integrity and personal courage.

dents give up on themselves too quickly. ... I try to figure out what they are not understanding.� Students and teachers describe the program as a community success story. Nelson, an Algebra I student, said, “At first, it was hard. Ms. Young would explain the concept, and then I would do the work. And then, I had to wait for her to get to everyone else before I could ask my question. “When Clay came and could explain it, it made it easy to understand,� Nelson said. Wayne, another student, added: “It is a good thing to have more people helping, especially in a big class.� Lawyer said the tutors have increased students’ confidence by building relationships and modeling persistence, even if you make a mistake. Algebra 1 teacher Joshua Fields said the tutors have been very helpful. “The tutors put another voice in the classroom from the teacher’s perspective to help students grasp the concepts. They bring another set of hands to help when one student is asking about one thing and another student asks about something else.�

Farewell to

Fontinalis By Ruth White

In true Fontinalis fashion, the women’s club hosted its last meeting with a spring luncheon at Beaver Brook Country Club. As the meeting opened, the group recited the Collect, whose final paragraph states, “May we strive to touch and to know the great common human heart of us all, and, Oh Lord God, let us forget not to be kind.” Mrs. John C.

It gave $500 to the Fountain City Elementary School art department to go toward the purchase of a kiln and gave $5,000 to establish a music scholar-

ship at Central High School to be awarded each year to a senior, beginning in 2015. Central High School choral director Beckye Thomas was given the Honor Award for outstanding leadership in music. The Tellico Tappers provided entertainment for the group prior to lunch and amazed the crowd with their energetic performances. Several members shared favorite memories of their time with the Fontinalis, and members who passed recently were fondly remembered. Past president Eleanor Thurman told me how the club donated $1,000 to the then-new North Side YMCA in 1980. “It wasn’t always work,” said Thurman. “We shared

a lot of good times.” The group enjoyed trips to Opryland to catch a show or to an area dinner theatre. “It was a wonderful club since 1956, and the founders had the foresight to see what the organization could do for the community.” Thurman and her husband, Jack, were named

Fountain City Man and Woman of the Year in 1984. Past president Gail Jackson reminded the group to “remember this day, our goodbye day.” As the Fontinalis says goodbye to Fountain City, their good works and good name will live on for many years to come.

News from Office of Register of Deeds

Real estate sales steady By Sherry Witt After a good beginning to the spring season, the local real estate market maintained status quo in April. For the month that ended Witt April 30, there were 821 property transfers recorded in Knox County, just nine more than the total recorded in March, and slightly less than the 850 sales logged last April. Despite the somewhat flat recorded numbers, there was a substantial increase in the aggregate value of land sold. In April, just over $205 million worth of property was transferred in Knox County, which was about $57 million ahead of the March pace. April 2013 produced around $160 million in total land sales. So far property sales in 2014 are outperforming last year by more than $100 million. Mortgage lending was a different story. Although

the April figures did offer some encouraging signs, mortgage markets continue to lag well behind their 2013 numbers. In April, just over $252 million was loaned against real estate in Knox County, some $40 million more than the amount loaned in March. But the April surge still leaves 2014 running $300 million behind last year’s pace. The most notable land transfer of the month was for the property containing the Lowe’s Home Improvement Center at 3100 South Mall Road, adjacent to Knoxville Center. The parcel sold for $19 million. On the mortgage side, the largest loan recorded was for $15,489,000 financing The Preserve at Hardin Valley.

Mission-oriented globetrotting

with Hammond

By Betsy Pickle County Commissioner Mike Hammond stepped away from politics to talk about some of his other passions to the Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce. As speaker for the chamber’s breakfast series last Tuesday, Election Day,

Hammond might have been expected to make a lastminute appeal for votes, since he was running for Criminal Court clerk, but his only plea for the day was to encourage people to go and vote, period. Hammond put local government in a sobering nut-

shell: There are 11 county commissioners and nine school board representatives, meaning that a majority of six on the former and five on the latter – 11 people total – decide what happens with our county tax dollars. Gulp. The bulk of the presenta-

tion by Hammond (who won his race, by the way) at Rothchild Conference Center was on things he’s done beyond Knox County. Way beyond. The veteran radio broadcaster started with glitz and patriotism – talking about touring U.S. military bases in Kuwait and Iraq with country star Craig Morgan in 2011. Hammond warmed up the crowds and served as emcee for Morgan’s shows, which – judging by the photos he showed – were met with enthusiasm by the servicemen and servicewomen. Hammond had plenty of pictures of Morgan and the troops – and of the lav-

ish palaces built by the late Saddam Hussein. He kept his narration upbeat for the most part – getting in an amusing dig at Hussein’s French collaborators – but he brought on a chill talking about a park Hussein built for his grandchildren after executing their father and about a stage still covered with bloodstains. The second part of Hammond’s slideshow covered his trip to Ethiopia on behalf of Bethany Christian Services. The numbers of orphans in Ethiopia (and other African countries) are staggering, but what makes the situation even worse is

that so many of the children are living on their own, with no families and no shelter. Bethany is trying to introduce and encourage a fostercare system in Ethiopia, and Hammond got to spend time with the first foster family in Ethiopia. He compared the quality of life in Ethiopia to that of the United States – there is no comparison. The humblest shack in the U.S. would be a middle-class home in Ethiopia. Hammond was visibly moved by his experience and did a great job conveying the need for help for the fostering program to his listeners.

News from Pellissippi State - Magnolia Campus

By Bonny Millard Two Knox County teachers who were chosen as Outstanding Teacher of the Year by the Rotary Club of Knoxville share a similar teaching philosophy. They believe all students can learn despite daily challenges they may face. Haley Kesler, a first-grade teacher at Lonsdale Elementary School, and Romy Reed, a special-education teacher at Halls Middle School, received the award during Teacher Appreciation Week at a Rotary Club meeting. Both women said they were honored by the selection and thanked the organization. Rotarian Mary Lynne Derrington said the teachers were selected from applicants across the Knox County school system. The club’s Education Recognition Committee sent letters in January to all principals asking them to nominate a teacher for the award. The committee reviewed and evaluated the nominations based on categories that included professional development, excellence in the classroom, school and community services and how the teachers enhanced teaching and learning within the school community, said Derrington, committee chairman. One teacher is selected from an elementary school and one from either a middle or a high school. Kesler, who taught at Inskip Elementary School for four years before coming to Lonsdale last year, said she loves teaching the first grade because she teaches students how to learn, how to love learning and how

to read. There is no greater gift than learning to read, she said. Lonsdale Principal Amy Brace introduced Kesler, saying she is the “kind of teacher you’d want your child to have.” Brace also said Kesler builds positive, caring relationships with both her students and her students’ families. “Lonsdale is a better place because of Haley,” Brace said. Reed has been at Halls for the past five years and taught at another school for seven years prior to that. She teaches special education. “I’ve learned to appreciate each day,” Reed said. “I believe everyone can learn.” Although she is the teacher, Reed said she learned some of her most valuable lessons from her students. Working with special-needs students requires patience and flexibility, she said. Her principal, Tim Wiegenstein, said that as a special-ed teacher, Reed works with the most fragile population of students. Reed provides a caring and inclusive atmosphere while creating a great learning environment, he said. Knox County School Superintendent Jim McIntyre thanked the Rotary and said these two teachers reflect skill and “incredible dedication” in serving their students. The teachers each received a $500 check and a $250 gift card for A&W Supply, donated by Rotarians Rob Johnson and Joe Johnson. Derrington also presented them with a plaque. Rotary Club of Knoxville meets at noon Tuesdays at the Marriott downtown.

STEM emphasis at Summer Institute This year’s Summer Institute at Pellissippi State Community College will get a boost to include a new STEM – science, technology, engineering and mathematics – emphasis, thanks to a $46,760 grant from the American Honda Foundation. “This grant will help fund academic programs for urban high school students that will provide rigorous exposure to relevant STEM career fields,” said L. Anthony Wise Jr., Pellissippi State president. “This exposure will broaden the educational opportunities for these students and allow them to consider new fields of study for college and career.” The grant was awarded through the Pellissippi State Foundation. Summer Institute takes place at Pellissippi State’s Hardin Valley Campus each summer and is open to rising sophomores from Austin-East and Fulton high

schools. The program is affiliated with Project GRAD Knoxville, which seeks to boost excellence in education, particularly in the city’s urban schools. The American Honda Foundation grant will fund enhancements to four STEM programs at the 2014 Summer Institute: alternative energy, robotics, aquabiotics and photographic science. The grant also will support professional development, a new instructor, field trips and equipment. “Through grant giving, the American Honda Foundation seeks to develop youth in the areas of math, science, engineering, technology and literacy,” said Alexandra Warnier, foundation manager. “We are proud to partner with Pellissippi State on its important contribution in this area and look forward to the impact and results

Since 2005, 946 students who participated in the Summer Institute have gone on to graduate from high school and earn a college scholarship for up to four years.

HEALTH & LIFESTYLES NEWS FROM FORT SANDERS REGIONAL MEDICAL CENTER

Delivering an experience a new mom expects As a nurse practitioner herself, Shana Beach of Knoxville, 31, wanted state-ofthe-art technology near her when she delivered her own first child. She chose Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center because of its relationship to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital across the street. “I had experience in a children’s hospital in Boston, and I wanted to be at a hospital that had easy access to a NICU (neonatal intensive care unit) just in case something went wrong,” Beach said. But everything went smoothly on April 2, when Beach and her husband, Alex, welcomed Gabriella Marian. After about 13 hours of labor, Gabriella weighed 7 pounds, 1.8 ounces and was delivered in a normal, low-risk birth in a Fort Sanders LDRP (labor, delivery, recovery room and postpartum). The spacious rooms allow the mother and her family to stay in one location for the entire hospital stay. “That was great,” Beach said. “We didn’t have to move anything and the room we were in was large. When I had a couple of visitors, there was plenty of room. My husband slept in a recliner chair and he was very comfortable.” The first six hours of labor were not painful, Beach said. “I thought, ‘If this is labor I can do this,’ ” she said. “But at 8 o’clock I was starting to feel contractions in my back, and over the next two hours they got so severe.” Beach had an epidural anesthetic and

Alex and Shana Beach welcomed their first child, Gabriella Marian, on April 2 of this year at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center. was able to rest for a while, and then her baby was born at 5:50 p.m. “She came out pink and screaming,” Beach said. Throughout the birth experience, Beach said she was surrounded by many helpful hands at Fort Sanders. “My husband was a great coach, he was

rubbing my back the whole time,” she said. “The nurse who helped deliver was incredible; she kind of coached me through everything. She knew her stuff and was very encouraging and professional. Dr. (Caroline) Haney-Weaver is very smart and very encouraging. I felt very comfortable with her.”

Finding the right time to deliver Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center has been recognized by the Tennessee Hospital Association for reducing the number of babies born electively between 37 and 39 weeks, thereby increasing their chances for better lifelong health. Fort Sanders Regional received the recognition from the THA’s Tennessee Center for Patient Safety, along with fellow Covenant Health facilities Parkwest Medical Center, LeConte Medical Center, Methodist Medical Center and MorristownHamblen Healthcare System. Fort Sanders Regional met the goal of decreasing the number of babies delivered electively between 37 and 39 weeks gestation to 5 percent or less, and maintained the goal level for a minimum of six consecutive months. The hospital was awarded a congratulatory banner to recognize their teams’ outstanding effort. “This is vital for our patients and the quality of care we provide,” Bernie Hurst, director of women’s services at Fort Sanders Regional, said. “We’ve had these standards in place at Regional for several years, Bernie Hurst so this highlights the hard work of many.” The two-week wait dramatically increases the chances for good

physical and developmental health of babies. It also allows for better health and safety of the mother. There is a greater risk of complications associated with births prior to 39 weeks, and waiting until then allows for better growth and development of vital organs such as the brain, lungs and liver. “Babies born too early are at risk for respiratory distress, jaundice, hypoglycemia and other conditions that require more medical care and put them at greater risk for death before their first birthday,” said Craig Becker, THA president. “That is why the work being done at these hospitals is so vitally important to all Tennesseans. Results like these represent the combined efforts of every single professional at these hospitals, from the physicians and nursing staff to the board of trustees.” Fort Sanders Regional is part of a statewide Healthy Tennessee Babies Are Worth the Wait initiative launched less than two years ago to increase awareness of the benefits of full-term delivery. In May 2012, nearly 16 percent of all Tennessee deliveries that occurred prior to 39 weeks gestation were considered elective. Today, that number has been reduced by almost 85 percent. Among other activities, the Covenant obstetrics departments adopted a strict policy that prohibits early elective deliveries before 39 weeks unless

After the birth, even the housekeeping staff impressed her, Beach said. “They came in periodically to mop the floor,” she said. “Everything always felt clean, open and bright. Our room had a beautiful view of the Smoky Mountains.” During her pregnancy, Beach took advantage of several classes at the “Teddy Bear University” at Fort Sanders, which offers dozens of courses to help get new parents ready for labor, delivery and newborn care. Beach also had a lactation consultant visit her during her two days in the hospital. “Twice, I had questions and they came quickly and answered them. Plus, I took a breast-feeding class and that was really helpful. My husband took it, too.” After two nights at Fort Sanders, the new Beach family was ready to go home. “A pediatrician came and talked to us, and a discharge nurse came in to talk to us about basic baby care,” she said. And even though she’s an experienced nurse herself, Beach said the information was helpful. “I know how babies happen in textbooks and on paper, and I had (studied) labor and delivery. But as a patient, it’s a whole new, scary, wonderful experience that I could not have prepared for at all.” Beach said she would recommend Fort Sanders to anyone expecting a new baby. “I couldn’t have asked for a better team,” she said.

Wha makes What a pr pregnancy high hig risk?

there is a clear medical risk to the mother or the baby. For Fort Sanders Regional, as a high-risk pregnancy center, the recognition is further proof of the excellent care patients and newborn babies receive. At the hospital, mothers have the option of LDRP (labor, delivery, recovery and postpartum) rooms or a fullystaffed level II nursery for newborns, which allows mothers to recuperate post-delivery and puts the baby in fully capable hands. Also, with neonatologists, perinatologists, obstetricians, a highlycertified nursing staff and the ability to transfer extreme cases to East Tennessee Children’s Hospital within minutes, Regional is able to accommodate any type of pregnancy. “We have any and everything a new mother would want or need when delivering a baby,” Hurst said. “This recognition is just a small indication of the wonderful things going on here.” “A healthy, full-term baby is always worth the wait, and Covenant Health is proud to lead this effort to decrease the number of infants delivered electively before 39 weeks,” said Jim VanderSteeg, Covenant Health executive vice presidenthospital operations. “Two additional weeks may not seem like much time, but for an infant, it can mean the difference between complications leading to lifelong health issues and a healthy and robust start.”
