No way to know “Ten years ago, when Doug Dickey was finishing up as athletic director at Tennessee, dear friend Nancy Siler and I had an interesting conversation about potential replacements,” Marvin West writes. “Her candidate was Bill Schmidt. “Nancy said he met all requirements. He had been an Olympic athlete and a Tennessee coach, a Chuck Rohe assistant. He had a Master’s degree in business with emphasis on accounting.”

Della Volpe advocates for smaller sign for Chick-fil-A By Sandra Clark Chick-fil-A scored points with its Fountain City neighbors when it tore down the giant billboard on its Broadway property. Now the Atlanta-based chicken sandwich store wants to install a 40-foot high pole sign at its location under construction. Nick Della Volpe, who represents District 4 on City Council, said he watched with interest as the new building got started.

By Betty Bean Not so fast, Mr. Moncier. That’s the message Herb Moncier received from U.S. District Court after a newspaper article announced that he is once again practicing law in federal court after serving a five-year suspension for contempt of court for disobeying a judge who ordered him to shut up. He says he doesn’t know exactly what he must do to be reinstated. “Evidently there’s a glitch,” he said. “Now I’m being told there’s something more I have to do. I did not expect to be in the position that I’m in today after 43 years of practicing law – at the center of this controversy. “I’ve cancelled three appointments this week with

It was “another exciting redevelopment of a vibrant older community.” Then he began to hear complaints about the sign. He wrote to Chick-fil-A: “Please don’t turn this historic part of our city into a truck-stop style venue. ... Work with us.” Della Volpe asked Chick-fil-A to consider a 14-foot monument sign (pictured at right) similar to the one installed on Kingston

Pike in Bearden. Joyce Feld, president of Scenic Knoxville, also has contacted the company in support of a monument sign. “Our position is pro-business because we know that people want to live and shop in an attractive area and at attractive businesses. Because of this, good signage is a win-win situation for both the community and the business.”

new clients who wanted to hire me to be their attorney in federal court.” Actually, Moncier’s pretty much always been in the center of controversy, whether for representing a Group W Bench full of infamous criminals or for forcing the local political establishment to comply with laws that they’d just as soon ignore, and doing it with a frequency, bluster and degree of success that members of the political establishment have found maddening. His highs are stratospheric, his lows tragic. And they’re almost always public. As one friend says, “Good or bad, things happen big to Herb.” Herb’s father, James C. Moncier, was a successful entrepreneur who founded

a chain of 17 Easy Way Five & Ten Cent Stores and acquired three cattle farms where he raised registered Aberdeen Angus. Every spring, Herb, a lifelong animal lover, would adopt a calf to raise and show at the fair in the fall. And every year it was the same – the trauma of selling the calf to the highest bidder, always the White Stores, inevitably followed the triumph of winning a blue ribbon. “I knew where the calf that I slept with at night in the barn (at the fair) was going to end up, and as long as the White Stores were in business, I would never eat beef from there. I wouldn’t even walk by the counter,” he said.

Winds of change stand. It is amazing how quickly a federal judge’s ruling can alter attitudes. TVA also has to know that this issue going to trial is but another loser for TVA in terms of hours spent on the case.

The May 2 conference between TVA attorneys and plaintiff attorneys at the Howard Baker Courthouse arguing over TVA’s dress code for public hearings produced a trial date of Oct. 29. Magistrate Clifford Shirley presided at the conference following Judge Tena Campbell’s decision to allow the issue to go to trial.

The Tennessee Bureau of Investigation is a joke. And that’s the kindest description of the bungling bureaucrats who have botched political corruption investigations for years. If not inept, try overly political or even corrupt as a descriptor. The biggest joke may be the slogan atop the TBI website: “Truth. Bravery. Integrity. That guilt shall not escape nor innocence suffer.” Say what? We’re still waiting for those Ragsdaleera indictments. And now folks are asking about Trustee John Duncan. ■ On March 18 at the Halls Republican Club, Duncan said he could not comment on legal difficulties in his office because of an ongoing TBI probe. ■ In April at the Democratic Club in Karns, Attorney General Randy Nichols said he could not proceed until the TBI investigation of the Trustee’s Office wrapped up. ■ Last week, TBI spokesperson Kristin Helm told this newspaper, “at this time I am not able to confirm nor deny” that an investigation is ongoing.

Not back yet

By December, however, he’d stepped in a mess of trouble when he handed out $3,000 bonuses to employees who were not entitled to them, including himself. These “incentive payments” rewarded employees who had completed the County Officials Certificate Training Program to become certified public administrators. The following October, he handed out even more bonuses. The bonuses were given to people who didn’t complete the course. The news broke in 2012 when investigators seized longtime Duncan friend and employee Zach Brezina’s computer to see whether he’d taken the test for others. As the year wore on, “insiders” kept saying that the pieces were about to fall into place, but deadline after deadline passed without action. On Dec. 12, Burnett and Tindell resigned and entered pleas. Since then, nothing. And now Duncan is making the rounds of Republican clubs giving every indication of running for reelection next summer.

Sandra Clark

So is there a TBI investigation or not? Will it be concluded before the expiration of the statute of limitations? Why is this hard? Duncan admitted taking money for educational coursework which he had not completed. He even paid it back. Duncan’s chief of staff, Josh Burnett, and delinquent tax attorney, Chad Tindell, resigned and entered guilty pleas to the misdemeanor of facilitation of official misconduct last December. Does the buck stop there? Background: Duncan got elected without opposition after the mere mention of his name cleared the field. He took office Sept.1, 2010, in what many believed was the first step toward succeeding his father, U.S. Rep. John “Jimmy” Duncan Jr.

His mother, Frances, passed on her relentless drive to her youngest son – “Saying no to my mother was just an invitation to do it another way.” When he was 10, his big sister Marty was killed in a traffic accident. His mother salved her grief by throwing herself into starting the Knoxville Teen Center, a safe place where young people had fun and did community service. A couple of generations of Knoxville youth came to know her as “Mama Mon.” Herb married Rachel Hufstedler, finished UT law school in 1970, was commissioned into the Army as a captain in the Judge Advocate General Corps and stationed near Washington, D.C. He served as prosecutor before deciding to switch sides. “The brass liked me as a

prosecutor but not so much as a defense attorney.” They liked him even less when he took the case of Robert K. Preston, a disgruntled soldier who stole a helicopter and flew it onto Richard Nixon’s White House lawn, getting himself shot five times in the process. He faced 105 years imprisonment and a dishonorable discharge, and Moncier made “60 Minutes” by accusing the Joint Chiefs of Staff of command influence, a criminal violation of the Code of Uniform Justice. Then he made Preston his clerk and rode him around in his Army car. Preston got off with a couple of months retraining and an honorable discharge. A military judge at Ft.

A cockatiel named Tippy occupies the office next to Moncier’s. Rachel returned to Knoxville. He went to work in the attorney general’s office, teaming up with Ralph Harwell as a fearsome duo that never lost a case. Rachel taught school. Their son Adam was born in 1977. In 1980, their newborn son Nicholas was diagnosed with cerebral palsy. Rachel was stricken with post-partum depression that deepened when her doctor said Nick was allergic to her breast milk. Herb took her to her parents’ home so they could look after her, but she found her father’s gun and ended her life, leaving Herb with a toddler and a severely disabled 5-month-old. He doesn’t know if he would have made it without the help of Harwell and quiet moments spent in the sanctuary of Church Street Methodist Church that deepened his faith and his resolve. His sons became the focus of his life. Nicholas lives with him and is his “best buddy.” Adam finished law school and started a practice focused on juvenile law. “Wish I could bottle

GOSSIP AND LIES ■ Gus Paidousis is a great guy, we’re sure, but hiring him for $90,000 to hire and supervise 58 other retired cops under the guise of school security is a huge boondoggle. It’s tough enough to fund public education without this empire-building. ■ Tim Burchett, we recall, said education funding should be directed toward the classroom. The expanded school security budget is an

additional $2 million directed toward guys watching locked front doors while possibly eating doughnuts. ■ Dr. Heather West, a graduate of Halls High School and Carson-Newman University Class of 2005, takes issue with Brianna Rader’s slam at UT, writing: “Obviously, the chancellors and trustees of UT felt the material being presented during this “Sex Week” was unsuitable to endorse and/

■ Betty Bean, who previously wrote a feature on West, says Rader was right. “The UT administration was fully informed and on board with everything Rader was doing all through the planning stage, so it wasn’t the content they had a problem with. It was only when Stacey Campfield and Fox News started in that they buckled.”

Adam. I’d have a formula for other young people. All those years of pain as a single father, then to see him get over the curve and all of a sudden … it’s just wonderful.” Moncier said. “And the best thing he’s done is marry Paige Christenberry and have Khaki – my granddaughter Katherine Rachel. And I’m Papa Herb to her and her brother, William, who is 10.” Meanwhile, he’s hoping to get his practice back on track, 70 percent of which was in federal court. His financial situation is complicated by years of unpaid public interest work that pretty much reshaped county government. “There was a complete political regime opposed to what Wanda Moody and later Bee DeSelm (his plaintiffs in the lawsuits that stopped the justice center and enforced term limits) were doing; and Lord, did they pay the price for it. And I became tainted – maybe justly so because I was crazy enough to do it. “But I did it because it was right and because the people needed somebody to stand up and help them take their government back.”

Here’s what our sources say: ■ That the TBI investigation, headed by agent Jerry Spoon, was completed last September. ■ That Tindell and Burnett have agreements that their cases will be dropped if no one else is charged. The statute of limitations on such offenses is two years, meaning that time would have been up on the 2010 offenses in December. But Tindell, Burnett and Duncan waived the statute. The deadline to prosecute 2011 offenses is October. ■ That the investigation was stymied when the U.S. Attorney’s office became involved, entangling the trustee’s issues with other matters. ■ That it’s looking like Duncan is going to walk. Conclusion: The TBI should finish its investigation and turn over its information to Randy Nichols. Let him or a substitute DA decide whether to prosecute. Otherwise, we suggest a more apt slogan for the top of that TBI website: “Justice delayed is justice denied.”

Fountain City’s oldest business HISTORY AND MYSTERIES | Dr. Jim Tumblin Fountain City Town Hall is honoring Fountain City’s businesses at this year’s Honor Fountain City Day in the Park on Memorial Day (Monday, May 27). As usual, the annual tshirt design features some image relevant to the emphasis for the year. In reaching the decision about which image to use, one Fountain City Town Hall board member said, “Let’s feature our oldest continual business.” “Which business is that?” someone asked. The board thought of Babelay and Stormer’s Fountain City Florist and Greenhouse (established 1939), Hardy Johnson’s Custom Shoe Rebuilders (established 1953) and Louis’ Restaurant (established 1958). Then someone asked, “How old is Pratt’s Country Market?” Eureka! It all came back in a flash. When the Tumblin family moved from Fairmont Boulevard to Adair Gardens in 1939, my mother quickly established a charge account at Pratt’s. Ralph Pratt recently refreshed my memory about the large metal rack with mousetrap-type springs that held the myriad of charge books, one for each customer. He regrets it was later stolen when someone broke into his storage barn. We recalled how customers were rewarded with a bag of loose candy when the bill was paid each month, not with green stamps or a reduced-price tank of gas. Precious memories! Actually the store was already 17 years old at the time. Ralph remembers that two brothers, W.H. “Will” and C.L. “Charlie” Pratt, moved from their farm home on the Anderson/Union county line and opened the grocery store at the junction of Tazewell and Jacksboro pikes and Sanders Lane in 1922. In 1959, Charles (1892-1946) and Opal Nelson Pratt (18981982) bought out Will and assumed full ownership. East on Tazewell Pike, just a few hundred yards from the store, stood the Pratt’s large two-story frame house. Here Opal cared for and cooked for the Pratt’s 11 children, plus grandmother Elizabeth Leach and Cleve, an orphaned and handicapped boy who came to live with them and later worked in the store. Much like Jim Ted Collins and Bobby Sandman did in future years, Cleve captured the hearts of all who knew him. But that wasn’t all. Opal Pratt also had eight boarders at one time and managed to attend any and all services at her beloved Smithwood Baptist Church. If any Fountain Citian ever qualified as one of Wilma Dykeman Stokely’s “Tall Women,” it was Opal Pratt. A stained-glass window in the Smithwood sanctuary recognizes her dedication to the church. Not long after Charley Pratt became full owner, he constructed a new building and Pratt Brothers became Pratt’s Market. At that time the store was a full-service grocery and meat market, and offered home delivery and credit. On the opposite corner of the Smithwood intersection, Hill’s Market was their friendly competition. For a time, as the three Tumblin boys were growing up, “Doc” Harry D. Stewart at Smithwood Drug Store gave Smithwood a trifecta. If a meager allowance would not allow a half-pound of chocolate drops at Hill’s or Pratt’s, maybe it would buy an ice cream soda at Doc’s soda counter.

No way to know Ten years ago, when Doug Dickey was finishing up as athletic director at Tennessee, dear friend Nancy Siler and I had an interesting conversation about potential replacements. Her candidate was Bill Schmidt. Nancy said he met all requirements. He had been an Olympic athlete and a Tennessee coach, a Chuck Rohe assistant. He had a Master’s degree in business with emphasis on accounting. He had served honorably in the military. He was a borderline genius. As director of sports at the 1982 World’s Fair, he produced a $300,000 profit while the whole show was doing a deficit. Nancy had followed Schmidt’s career closely from the time her husband, Tom Siler, had said he would be a star. She recalled when

ness and lead the Volunteers to even greater success. UT president John Shumaker either didn’t ask Nancy or didn’t take her assessment seriously. He interviewed Schmidt but promoted Mike Hamilton, Dickey’s key assisMarvin tant and a brilliant fund-raiser. West “We did a thorough and exhaustive national search,” said Shumaker. His next line was something about the right man at the right time. We’ll never know how Bill Stokely Van Camp hired Bill as director of development Schmidt would have done. and loaned him to the Los You can guess UT athletics Angeles Olympics. He served would never have been $223 Peter Ueberroth as a vice million in debt. Schmidt oversaw Gatorade president, responsible for growth from $80 million to eight sports. Back at Stokely, or maybe $1.8 billion. Signing Michael it was Quaker Oats by then, Jordan to pitch the product Schmidt was named vice may have helped sales. I remember when Bill president of worldwide marketing of Gatorade. You know said: “Foreign countries what happened to Gatorade. didn’t know sports drinks, Nancy thought Bill but they knew Michael JorSchmidt was a natural – dan. We couldn’t afford him smarts, background, person- but we did a 10-year endorseality, contacts, skill set – to ment deal not knowing how direct UT athletics as a busi- good he would be.”

Passive persistence When he had spent everything, a severe famine took place throughout that country, and he began to be in need. So he went and hired himself out to one of the citizens of that country, who sent him to his fields to feed the pigs. He would gladly have filled himself with the pods that the pigs were eating; and no one gave him anything. But when he came to himself he said, “How many of my father’s hired hands have bread enough and to spare, but here I am dying of hunger! I will get up and go to my father, and I will say to him, ‘Father, I have been led astray against heaven and before you. I am no longer worthy to be called your son; treat me like one of your hired hands.’ ” So he set off and went to his father. But while he was still far off, his father saw him and was filled with compassion; he ran and put his arms around him and kissed him. (Luke 15: 14-20 NRSV) Of all the parables Jesus told, this one is the most beloved. Perhaps that is because at one time or another we can identify with all the characters in this little drama. It tells us volumes about

ourselves: our own rebellion and selfishness, our heedlessness of the hurt we cause others; our need for love. It also tells us about ourselves as parents: the jumbled emotions of love and frustra-

tion, the joys and sorrows of watching our children go through the stages of adolescence, the sense of arrival when they are finally grownups. It tells us, too, about ourselves as siblings: children raised by the same parents, in the same home, who turn out to be very different, very distinct individuals. I wonder what it also tells us about the storyteller: Jesus. He would have been the elder brother in his family: Mary’s first-born. Did he know of family anguish firsthand? Did he have a ne’erdo-well younger sibling who broke Joseph’s heart?

It took Schmidt a few minutes to catch up with the New York Giants’ postgame ritual of dumping Gatorade on coach Bill Parcells. When he saw it on replay, he said it was advertising better than money could buy. At the end of that season, he spent some and sent Parcells a letter. “We at The Quaker Oats Company, makers of Gatorade Thirst Quencher, realize that due to the yearlong ‘Gatorade dunking’ you have been receiving, your wardrobe has probably taken a beating. “The enclosed check should help remedy the problem; after all, we do feel somewhat responsible for your cleaning bill.” In the sports marketing world, Bill Schmidt was first considered a pioneer. He became a giant. The Sporting News twice listed Schmidt among the most powerful people in sports. He knew everybody. He could get tickets to any event.

Schmidt left Gatorade to become CEO of Oakley sunglasses and apparel. Good old Michael Jordan arranged that deal. Schmidt eventually came back to Knoxville and started his own sports marketing and consulting firm, Pegasus. He served as an adjunct professor at UT. He dabbled in real estate. He played golf. He rode Harley-Davidson motorcycles. His hometown of Canonsburg, Pa., put up a historical marker commemorating his world status among javelin throwers. He won the bronze at the Munich Olympics, the only American to medal in that event in 61 years and counting. This summer Bill Schmidt will be inducted into the Greater Knoxville Sports Hall of Fame. It will be a brief celebration of excellence. No way to know what might have been.

This story resonates with me, not because of my own family history, but because of the families I have encountered in various forms of ministry throughout my career. I have listened to stories of children who were abandoned (or worse), of parents whose children rebelled, of brothers and sisters who no longer speak to each other; of children who have no idea where their parents are now. It is sad, but true: families can fall apart. Even so, it is clear that Jesus told this story to demonstrate the patience and the forgiving nature of God. But the most fascinating part of it (for me at least) is the father’s standing at the gate, watching, waiting. He didn’t saddle up and ride off in all directions searching for the boy. He didn’t go drag the prodigal home by the scruff of the neck. He did not abandon his wife and other son, or his responsibilities as head of household.

But on that day when the prodigal’s familiar form came over the hill, the father was at the gate, looking for his boy. Imagine the patience, the forbearance, the self-discipline it had required of the father! Imagine, too, the restraint that was required to keep the father from ranting about the worry, the heartbreak, the hurt. There was no “well¸ it’s about time!” Or “where in the world have you been?” His passive persistence had paid off: his boy had come home of his own free will and his own recognition of his folly. The faithful father had been standing at the gate to welcome him. Jesus didn’t say they all lived happily ever after. But they were a family again, and that, after all, was the point of the parable. It also was God’s intent in sending Jesus into this world: to welcome home all the prodigals. Thanks be to God!

News from SOS Green Community School opened in mid-October with 60 students and an average daily attendance of 35. Many students had committed to other programs, but the school expects to be at full capacity of 65 students next year. Green principals, a guidance counselor, a social worker, and a psychologist selected participants based on grades, standardized test scores and home environment. The YMCA is the program’s primary sponsor. Project Grad is a partner and Helen Ross McNabb provides a case manager two days a week. The Girl Scouts has given scholarships to 50 girls active in its programs. The student program is a series of enrichment experiences to supplement the school day. Two afternoons weekly are focused on academic tutoring in small groups. During the other three afternoons students participate in art, led by a teacher provided by the Knoxville Museum of Art; fitness with a volunteer trainer; golf, with lessons from a YMCA sports director; and gardening (4th and 5th graders) with volunteers from UT Agricultural Extension and ECO Garden. All students participate in a reading and technology course with help from the UT Veterinary School Human-Animal Bond in Tennessee program.

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers

Helping schools is priority at Shoney’s By Jake Mabe Ask Knox County Schools supervisor of business partnerships Scott Bacon to recommend a business that has long been involved with Knox County Schools’ Partners in Education, and he doesn’t hesitate. “Shoney’s.” Makes perfect sense. The restaurant has long marketed itself as a familyfriendly restaurant. Shoney’s of Knoxville president/CEO Bill Baugh says that mind-set includes helping schools. “We’ve always at Shoney’s, even back when we were the Big Boy, helped education. It’s good community service and we are interested in promoting youth, putting something back into the community.” Shoney’s opened its first Knoxville franchise in 1962. Baugh says the local franchises’ previous owners, brothers Wade, Hillard and Leon Travis, emphasized helping schools. He continued and expanded it after becoming president/CEO when Shoney’s of Knoxville, Inc. was established as an Employee Stock Ownership Plan in 1995. Its list of school partnerships is long – and impressive. Shoney’s has participated in Knox County Schools’ popular school coupon book program since 1998. “That’s a win-win for everybody,” says marketing director Annie LaLonde. “Shoney’s doesn’t do a lot of couponing, but when we do, we want to make sure it’s something that (goes) back to the community.” Shoney’s participates in A Very Special Art Fest, an event for students with special needs held at West High School during the Dogwood Arts Festival. Mascot Shoney Bear entertains at the event, as well as at other school-related events and activities throughout the county, including walks, student fairs and reward events. Over the last five years, Shoney’s has donated more than $5,000 to Knox County Schools through the popular Dine Out for Education fundraiser, a day in which 10 percent of proceeds at par ticipating restaurants are earmarked for the school system. Eighteen years ago, Shoney’s began the KidCare ID program, at which parents can receive a free information kit that is readily available in case their child is ever reported missing. The IDs include a color photograph, fin-

gerprints, vital information (height, weight, date of birth), a medical profile, info on the “Seven Rules of Safety” and a 24-hour National Center for Missing and Exploited Children hotline number. Participants also receive fun safety items for their family and get to meet Shoney Bear. The event will be held Aug. 23-25 this year at Safety City, Cedar Bluff Elementary School and Foothills Mall in Maryville. Shoney’s six Knox County locations partner with nearby schools: Sunnyview Primary, Mooreland Heights Elementary, Dogwood Elementary, East Knox County Elementary, Pond Gap Elementary, Bearden Elementary, West Haven Elementary, Norwood Elementary and Copper Ridge Elementary. LaLonde says these schools and others that do not have an official partnership with Shoney’s regularly receive food donations for events, reward certificates, and coupons for students and teachers. In partnership with WOKI News-

Talk 98.7 and radio personality Phil Williams, Shoney’s also recognizes the Shoney’s Super Kid, identifying a student at four schools who “has been in a tough situation and risen above it,” LaLonde says. The student is picked up at school in a limousine along with three friends, gets to talk with Williams on the radio and is given dinner at the Shoney’s location closest to the student’s school before returning. “It’s just a fun way to promote school spirit and tell (children) that you don’t have to be the best at everything to be recognized for good work,” LaLonde says. Shoney’s also partners with WIVK radio and disc jockey Gunner to recognize a Teacher of the Month, who is nominated by students or parents and chosen by WIVK for exceptional work. 2013 Knox County Schools winners were Joan DeDominick at Ritta Elementary, Ara Langford at Shannondale Elementary and Trudy Sturgill at Christenberry Elementary. In past years, Shoney’s has also worked with East Tennessee Children’s Hospital on Eating and Living Healthy, conducting two programs at Moore-

Knox County Council PTA

land Heights Elementary. Shoney’s of Knoxville Inc. was the first non-municipal building constructed at Safety City, which annually provides 2nd grade students with a safety program on how to safely navigate city streets. “It went from a group talking to next thing you know they’re down there constructing the building,” Baugh says. And Shoney’s has helped further the education of its employees in the most basic way: “We’ve had a lot of servers who worked their way through college while working at Shoney’s and they also put their children through college.” Shoney’s also sponsors a Kids Zone – family friendly sections – at Knoxville Ice Bears and Tennessee Smokies games. Since 2011, LaLonde has been a member of Partners in Education’s board of directors. “And we don’t do any of this for a gain,” Baugh says. “We do it because that’s what we are.” For more information on Knox County Schools’ Partners in Education, visit or call Scott Bacon at 594-1909.

Dental Answers

On sale this month only.

Answer: Research has confirmed that periodontal disease (gum disease) has at least a partial hereditary factor and some degree of familial tendency. Even so, periodontal disease is preventable with proper oral hygiene and regular professional care by one's dentist and dental hygienist. Those who have greater susceptibility to gum disease must be very diligent in using necessary oral hygiene methods at home in the manner demonstrated in the dental office. Although puffy and bleeding gums are often

symptoms of periodontal disease, some patients will have few symptoms while significant bone destruction is occurring below the surface of the gums. A fact that is surprising to many is that more adults in our population today suffer loss of teeth due to periodontal disease than to tooth decay. A visit to one's dentist for examination every six months is highly recommended. Questions for “Dental Answers” are welcomed and should be sent to our address at 7409 Temple Acres Drive, Knoxville, TN, 37938.

Bull Run Community By Bonnie Peters The Bull Run Community in Union County is so named because of Bull Run Creek. Bull Run Creek runs from the Grainger County line near Fairview to the Knox County line in the Hansard community. This creek is a significant water source with wetlands and at some places some pretty decent fishing. A few weeks ago I visited my friends, Carson “Eddie” and Amy Thompson, who live on Bull Run Road.

intact, even though they died some years ago. Freed was Union County sheriff from 1908 through 1910 and again in 1924. It is said that he never carried a gun and felt that he didn’t need one to do his job. He was a tall, strong man with a convincing presence that probably enabled him to do this. Perhaps the best known resident of the upper Bull Run area was Pharaoh Chesney, a slave purchased by prominent land owner John Chesney for $421 on Nov. 25, 1841. After the slaves were freed, John Chesney deeded Pharaoh, “Uncle Ferry,” a homeplace which is just off Highway 370 in the vicinity of the Union County Waste Treatment facility near the intersections of Highway 370 with Kitts and Ridgeview roads at Luttrell. The original deed has been passed down and remains in the Chesney family. Pharaoh Chesney’s log home is pictured in “Our Union County Families.” He is buried in Wyrick Cemetery.

Renovation for The Birth Place The Women’s Pavilion at Physicians Regional Medical Center is getting an $800,000 makeover which should be complete in September. The Birth Place is home to 22 private birthing suites for labor, delivery and postpartum care; two state-of-the-art surgical suites for Caesarean deliveries; and a 15-bed special care nursery staffed and equipped to care for infants who are premature or ill at birth. When all renovations are complete, The Birth Place will feature rooms furnished with warm and relaxing design elements, and equipped with a flat-

screen TV and a comfortable sofa bed for the mother’s designated support person. All rooms have private bathrooms. In addition to patient care areas, the renovation project includes modern nursing stations, new flooring and wall coverings, and remodeled family waiting areas. “Our facility has an 80year history of delivering babies in a caring, familycentered environment that is supportive of the expectant mother while involving the rest of the family,” said Leonard A.

Property sales continue to climb By Sherry Witt After a strong first quarter, the month of April continued to bring signs of encouragement to the local real estate and Witt lending markets. For the month that ended on Tuesday, April 30, there were 850

property transfers recorded in Knox County. That’s nearly 150 more than those recorded in March, and also bests last April’s total by more than 100. The aggregate value of land sold during the month also continued its upward trend, as $159.6 million worth of property was transferred. Both this March and last April produced just over $137 million in land sales. Mortgage lending also ex-

perienced a surge, jumping nearly $60 million past the March totals to $342.4 million. In April of 2012, about $287 million was loaned against real estate in Knox County. Perhaps most significant is the fact that the vast majority of April’s land transfers were residential. The largest commercial transaction of the month, the transfer of two parcels off Pellissippi Parkway, brought $2.6 million. An-

Rose Paving boosts Joy of Music Every day, the Joy of Music School parking lot sees dozens of cars picking up and dropping off kids of all ages toting guitars, violins, music books and more. While the wear and tear on the parking lot was visible, the available funding to refurbish it was not. That’s when a member of the school’s board of directors, Tim Purcell of Pilot Flying J, made a phone call to Rose Paving Company. “Not only was Rose Paving happy to help, they offered to donate their services completely,” Purcell said. “I was extremely grateful but not surprised. The Joy of Music School is a terrific organization, and companies like Rose Paving and other community partners are eager to lend a hand.


“Rose Paving jumped at the opportunity to help the school as it works to provide unique opportunities to at-risk kids through music.” In April, Rose Paving donated nearly $5,000 worth of labor and materials to sealcoat the parking lot and mark the car stalls. Sealcoating protects the asphalt, prolonging the usable life of the lot. Frank Graffeo, executive director of the school, said, “We are so grateful to Rose Paving for the donation of services and to Pilot Flying J for helping us make the connection. With the help of community partners like these, our dollars stretch further so that we can continue to make the greatest impact on the lives of financially disadvantaged children.”

CARE365 launches FormalCARE An opportunity was born out of tragedy to show the community love and care. Coach Dave Moore was deeply touched by the 1999 Columbine shootings and knew that he needed to do something inside Knox County schools. Moore didn’t sleep much in the days following the shootings. He began to sketch ideas for a program. His then 3-year-old daughter Allie woke up from a horrible nightmare one night and Moore went to comfort her. He asked her, “Do you know how much I love you?” and she responded, “I know how much you care about it.” The idea of a program focused on caring was born. Moore knows that God led him to be a teacher and a coach. He calls himself an Average Joe, just a coach. “I may not be the smartest, but I care.” His philosophy is simple:

Ruth White

“You can’t reach people unless you accept them unconditionally.” To him, it’s all about caring unconditionally for students and members of the community. Moore, known as “Coach,” always tries to look for the good in people. “Maybe a certain student needed someone to support them and their interests. Had this happened, they might have felt accepted.” It doesn’t cost money to do this, it just takes time. The program, CARE365, focuses on caring more and complaining less, about truly caring for other individuals regardless of their back-

ground, circumstances or what they do in life. “You cannot have character if you don’t care.” Out of CARE365 was born FormalCARE, a formalwear “closet” that loans dresses to individuals who may not be able to attend their high school prom or formal dance because they cannot afford to purchase a formal dress. The program is targeted for special needs students, but is not limited to them. “We want to loan a dress to someone down on their luck that needs a nice dress to wear to a dance, wedding or other formal event. Theresa McKenrick is a teacher at Harriman High School and is “CARE-nected” to the program. She joined with Moore and his family to provide tuxedos, accessories and shoes for men to wear. Prom season is the target season for the ministry, but is offered year-round.

Trish Burgess is the CAREordinator of the FormalCARE program. Formal attire is loaned to individuals who cannot afford to purchase a dress for prom, a wedding, a formal dance or another special occasion. Photo by Ruth White FormalCARE has a nice selection of dresses in various sizes and colors, thanks in large part to Bella Boutique’s donations and those from community members. The dresses are viewed by appointment and loaned to individuals to wear. Once returned, they are dry cleaned and stored for the next big event.

East Tennessee ElderWatch chose to take a different approach to the conference this year, in an attempt to raise awareness and educate prospective attendees about current trends in the area of elder care. This year’s topics are intended to challenge participants about what they know regarding some of the lesser known, but emerging, trends related to elder care and abuse. Presenters aim to educate about the importance, prevalence, appropriate response, and available resources related to hoarding, bullying, food insecurity, and how the country can protect its seniors from predatory sexual offenders in residential facilities. There will also be an update concerning the prescription drug problem in Tennessee. Don Dare, WATE-TV investigative reporter, will moderate this one-day event. Speakers are professionals with upto-date information relevant to the senior population. Info: or John Bender at 691-2551, extension 4234.

A rocky start to a wonderful life Even when you do everything right, pregnancy can be full of uncertainty. “This was my second child, and I had a perfectly normal pregnancy with the ďŹ rst one,â€? said Mary Greene of Knoxville. She was surprised to learn, that at 20 weeks into her second pregnancy, her baby boy, Ryan, had developed anemia. Anemia is a lack of red blood cells. It can lead to a condition called hydropsfetalis, which is when uid accumulates in two or more areas of the baby’s body, a life-threatening condition. The anemia developed because Greene’s own body had an immune system reaction to the baby. His blood contained an antigen called Kell1, inherited from his father, Adam Greene. Mary Greene’s blood did not have the antigen, so she developed antiKell1 antibodies, and her immune system began killing off the baby’s red blood cells. Only about 9 percent of the population has the Kell1 antigen, making this a much more rare condition than Rh factor disease. “It’s very similar to Rh factor disease, but with Rh you can just get a shot. With anti-Kell1, they haven’t ďŹ gured out a way to do that yet,â€? said Greene. “It usually shows up in second pregnancies.â€? Greene’s physician detected the condition during routine blood work. “They did all those screenings blood tests, and they found out I have it, but they just didn’t know severity,â€? she said. “At around 22 to 23 weeks, it started to get a little more severe.â€? Greene’s obstetrician referred her to high-risk pregnancy

“Ten to 15 years ago, my child would not even have made it. We thank Dr. Stephens every day.� – Mary Greene

Mary Greene enjoys a recent beach trip with husband Adam and sons Jacob (left) and Ryan. specialist Gary Stephens, D.O., who practices at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center’s Perinatal Center. Stephens said Greene’s baby would need blood transfusions in the womb. That’s right ‌ in the womb. “Well, at ďŹ rst I was freaked out,â€? said Greene. “But Dr. Stephens was great; he kept me very calm and made sure all my questions were answered.â€?

What makes a pregnancy high risk? Multiple miscarriages – women who have lost previous pregnancies Pre-term labor – when the mother goes into labor prematurely Gestational diabetes – when the blood sugar level of the mother elevates during pregnancy Hypertension in pregnancy – the mother’s blood pressure rises to abnormally high levels Multiple fetuses – multiples place an added strain on the mother and babies, and require special skills to manage a pregnancy to term. Previous pregnancies with complications Health problems and/or a family history of genetic disorders in the mother

Using a long needle guided by ultrasound, Stephens inserted it through Greene’s abdomen and into the baby’s umbilical cord. Once in place, Stephens began infusing the cord with new blood, a process that took a total of about an hour, Greene said. “Dr. Stephens explained the whole process, and even during the procedure he kept talking to me,� she said. “He kept the ultrasound on the whole time, so I watched

most of the transfusions.� Greene also stayed overnight at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center for monitoring. “The procedure can often induce contractions, so I had to stay overnight to be monitored,� she said. “It really wasn’t very painful, except for the contractions. It was important for me to stay calm, and the nursing staff was wonderful helping me do that.� In the following weeks, Stephens

continued to monitor Greene’s baby by ultrasound, looking for signs of anemia. In the course of the pregnancy, little Ryan had a total of four blood transfusions, every three weeks or so. “I had the same nursing team every time,â€? said Greene. “I felt like Fort Sanders was my second home in some ways. I spent more time there than with my husband and son!â€? But all that time paid off. Ryan was born in September 2011, at 36 weeks gestation, and required only one more blood transfusion after birth. He weighed 6 pounds, 7 ounces. Today, Ryan is 19 months old, very healthy and almost as big as his brother Jacob, 3. “He’s large and in charge,â€? said Greene. “And he’s a ďŹ reball.â€? Greene said she still has a few marks on her stomach where the needles went in. “They remind me how blessed I am to have my son here. I realize we are very blessed to have children in the ďŹ rst place and I looked at this as a blessing and miracle,â€? she said. “Ten to 15 years ago, my child would not even have made it. We thank Dr. Stephens every day.â€?

Specialized care for high-risk pregnancies The Fort Sanders Perinatal Center, located at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, focuses on providing comprehensive pregnancy care to high-risk mothers in complicated pregnancies. Staffed by perinatologists Gary Stephens, D.O., and Perry Roussis, M.D., the center is equipped with the latest in high-resolution ultrasound for prenatal diagnostic testing. It also has four nurse practitioners, a certiďŹ ed nurse-midwife and two genetic counselors on staff. “We have specialized training in highrisk pregnancies and have a lot of experience with complications,â€? said Stephens. “We’ve both been doing this over 20 years.â€? Most women are referred to the center by their obstetricians when complications arise in pregnancy – discovering twins or triplets, for example. Others come to the center because they’ve had previous pregnancy problems or underlying health problems. “Any woman with high blood pressure, diabetes or some genetic disorders would be considered high-risk,â€? explained Stephens.

“Or, if she’s had a previous complicated pregnancy, she’s considered high risk during another one.� After delivery, babies born at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center have East Tennessee Children’s Hospital just across the street and connected by an underground tunnel, if extra care is needed. “If there’s a problem with the baby, we have all the resources of Children’s Hospital to help take care of and stabilized those babies,� said Stephens. But Stephens added that it’s best for a high-risk woman to come to the Perinatal Center before she gets pregnant. “If someone’s not sure, or they think they Drs. Gary Stephens (left) and Perry Roussis spemay be likely to have a high risk pregnancy, cialize in high-risk pregnancy care at the Fort one of the best things we can do for them Sanders Perinatal Center. is to see them before they get pregnant,� Stephens said. “We can develop a plan of care to optimize their outcome,� he said. “We can For more information on the change their medications, or have them Fort Sanders Perinatal Center meet with a genetic counselor.

The kids are alright Dr. Cheryl Greenacre, associate professor of avian and zoological medicine at the UT Veterinary Medical Center, wants you to know something about that baby bird that you saw flopping on your lawn.

Carol Zinavage

Carol’s Critter Corner “It’s perfectly normal,” she says. “It’s trying to develop muscle tone, and its parents are nearby. Leave it alone.” Dr. Greenacre compares wildlife babies to human teenagers. “They’re learning how to live life, but they’re making lots of mistakes. One of their mistakes is being out in the open.” There are a lot of Good Samaritans out there who see a baby animal all alone and pick it up, assuming that it’s in distress. This phenomenon even has a name: “spring kidnapping.” It not only applies to birds, but to rabbits, squirrels, deer and other types of wildlife. But the best course of action is simply none. It’s all part of nature’s plan. Particularly vulnerable to well-meaning “rescuers” are animals such as rabbits and fawns that have been taught by their mothers to stay still, blend in with the environment and wait for a parent’s return. When the animal doesn’t flee from an approaching human, many people assume it’s injured and needs help.

Get ready to be entertained by Powell Playhouse’s own “odd couple,” Flash Black as Felix and Brian Murphy as Oscar. Here Oscar listens with incredulity and some sympathy as Felix tells of being kicked out of the house by his wife, Frances. Photo by Nancy Anderson

Felix and Oscar at Powell In Playhouse’s ‘The Odd Couple’

“People bring in fawns all the time,” says Greenacre. “There’s a lot of hard work, time and money that goes into saving lives. If we have people bringing in healthy young animals, it takes time and attention away from the ones who really do need help, and greatly taxes our resources.” And it puts a serious kink in nature’s system, which is intended to teach the baby how to live in the wild. In cases of injured wildlife, Greenacre and her colleagues mostly focus on triage. The animal is then handed over to be treated off site by specialists licensed by the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency. Everything possible is done to get the animal back to the wild with 100 percent of its athletic ability. Right now we’re smack in the middle of baby bird season, and fledglings are

everywhere. Once they leave the nest, they’re on their own. They can’t fly very well, which is why the parents stick around for a few weeks. If you feel you absolutely have to do something to get a baby bird out of harm’s way, put it far back in shrubbery nearby, and lock your cats and dogs inside the house. On a related note, the good doctor has recently operated on two magnificent birds of prey: a bald eagle and a red-tailed hawk. Both had been shot. The bald eagle made it. The hawk didn’t. All hawks, owls, and golden and bald eagles are protected by federal law. If you see someone trying to shoot one of these birds, report them. And leave that baby animal alone, because the kids really are alright. Send your interesting animal stories to


Powell Playhouse is presenting Neil Simon’s “The Odd Couple” on June 6, 7, 8 and 9 at the Jubilee Banquet Facility. Cast in the main roles are Flash Black and Brian Murphy. Murphy comes to the stage as Oscar, the divorced, messy, disorganized funloving sportswriter. In this zany comedy he befriends Felix, his poker buddy who is going through a divorce from his wife of 12 years.

Stunned and heartbroken, Felix is the original obsessive-compulsive clean freak. Put two opposite personalities together for a few days and watch mayhem ensue. Who is more repulsive? Pity the wives, Blanche and Frances. Murphy appears in his second role for the Playhouse; the first was as Lieutenant Rooney in “Arsenic and Old Lace.” Flash

Black is making his stage debut with the Playhouse. Advanced dinner (6 p.m.) and play (7:30) tickets for June 6, 7 and 8 may be reserved through Mona at 256-9428 or 9477428.
