Halls Senior Center welcomed new center coordinator Rebecca Quarles in high style with a weeklong celebration in honor of Derby Days. Quarles will replace Darrell Gooding, who is preparing to open the new senior center in Karns at the first of June. She has been with Knox County for five years and has been at the centers in South Knoxville and Carter. Rebecca is thrilled to be closer to home (her husband is a 1989 graduate of Halls High). Gooding has been coordinator for eight years in Halls but is thrilled to know that he is leaving his “family” in good hands. “Rebecca will bring a lot to Halls,” he said. “She is very creative, and I have enjoyed learning from her in the past few weeks.” She is busy getting to know the people in Halls and loves that something different happens each day. “This job is very fulfilling, At the Halls Senior Center’s Derby Days are (front) Kim Olen (East TN Personal), new center coordinator Rebecca and we grow to be like family and Quarles; (back) Teresa Gregory (NHC Homecare), Remona Jessee (Heartland Apothecary), Lora Patterson (Smoky friends.” Stop by the Halls Senior Mountain Hospice) and Dava Snyder (Courtyards Senior Living).

Edward Terry Sanford (1865-1930)



is early academic achievements had forecast success in life. Fulfilling that prophecy, he would become an influential Tennessee attorney, a civic leader, an orator who could persuade an audience, a judge and a U.S. Supreme Court justice. He was the only Knoxville native and the only University of Tennessee graduate to ascend to that high office. Edward Terry Sanford was born in Knoxville on July 23, 1865, just months after the Civil War ended. He was the oldest of six surviving children of Edward Jackson Sanford (1831-1902) and Emma Chavannes Sanford (1841-1895). His father was a Connecticut native who had come to Knoxville in 1853 to work as a carpenter. He fell in love with the city and soon achieved success and became a partner in a lumber company. When many fled the city during the cholera epidemic in 1854, he stayed behind to care for the sick and help bury the dead at great risk to his health. In 1860, he met and married Emma Chavannes, the daughter of Charles Adrian and Anna Chavannes. Charles was the leader of the Swiss colonists who left Europe in 1849 to settle in Knox County. His son Albert would produce the first sociological journal in the U.S., and Albert’s son Adrian L. Chavannes would

found the Chavannes Lumber Co. and become one of the leading mill operators and lumber dealers in the county. His grandson Ed Chavannes would later become mayor of Knoxville. The young Sanford couple had been married only one year when the Confederate Army seized Knoxville and Edward fled to Kentucky to join the Union Army. When he contracted pneumonia and Judge Edward T.

ments (“age 14, able to read, write and spell well, grounded in arithmetic, English, grammar and geography”). When offered the option of pursuing either the Agricultural, Mechanical or Classical course, he chose the Classical course. His evaluation at the end of the first of his three years read, “He was a conscientious student, neither absent nor tardy, accumulated no demerits and earned a perfect or near perfect score in all academic subjects.” The next two years proceeded well also. The U.S. Congress had passed the Morrill Act in 1862 when Tennessee was a Confederate state, but Congress passed a special act in 1867 enabling Tennessee to become eligible. The East Tennessee University received the Land Grant designation in 1869, and the state Legislature renamed it the University of Tennessee in 1879 just in time for Edward T. Sanford to matriculate. Again he had to obtain a waiver as he was only 14 and the requirement was age 16. The Morrill Act required instruction in military tactics adding to his course load. However, he achieved an exemplary record and was awarded the Class Certifi-

cate of Distinction and an Honorary Scholarship in his freshman year. He achieved the rank of 3rd Sergeant and became a Distinguished Undergraduate in his sophomore year. As a junior he became a 2nd Lieutenant and attained a Certificate of Distinction in Mathematics, Surveying, Chemistry, Physiology, Zoology and Philology. He was certified in Pure Mathematics and Ancient Languages and was promoted to Captain and Adjutant of the Corps of Cadets. His senior year ended with another Certificate of Distinction, this time in Mechanics, Astronomy, Political Economy, Mental and Moral Science, History, Biology and Geology. He was a member of the Delta Literary Society, served as manager of the DLS publication, The Monthly Crescent, and graduated in 1883 with both the A.B. and Ph.B. degrees. Knowing he wanted to make a career in the law and, knowing that he “wanted to carry his mind and career beyond the contemporary Knoxville Lawyers,” he chose a different path than most at that time who “read law” in the office of a practicing attorney. His father had wanted him to at-

tend Harvard, and Edward enrolled there as a junior in the Literary Department. Mirroring his success at UT, he graduated from Harvard in 1885 with a B.A. degree in political science, magna cum laude, and was selected Class Day Orator. He returned to Harvard Law School, but only after studying languages and economics in Germany and France for a year. Still only 21 years old, he led his class at the end of the first year and at the end of the course. The Harvard Law Review was founded during his first year and, when its fourth number was published, Edward T. Sanford was its editor. He graduated from Harvard Law School in 1889 and received an M.A. and an LL.B. cum laude. He now had five earned degrees. When he was appointed to the U.S. Supreme Court by President Warren G. Harding in 1923, someone would observe, “Sanford is the most educated justice ever appointed to the Supreme Court.” Next month’s Part II will explore his community service and his professional career in the law that provided the additional credentials that fitted him for that high office.

Cindy Taylor “Where you’re standing was originally the Land of

Franklin, part of North Carolina,” he said. So I had to travel back to North Carolina to do an interview today in Tennessee? Taylor has collected memorabilia to rival an historical museum; but just as much history lives in his memories. From the early days of Tennessee, Knoxville and surrounding counties to today, Taylor can answer pretty much any question. But it isn’t only Tennessee history, and Tay-

Howard house tion of the Howard house. “At this point, the owner could go to plans review, ask for a demolition permit and tear it down pretty quickly,” Massey said. “But the problem with that is, if they don’t get the rezoning, they could be left with an empty lot.” May 5 was the deadline to apply to MPC for a rezoning, so the question will not be on this month’s agenda for review and recommendation. Massey said City Council would discuss adopting an ordinance to protect historic structures on Broadway at its May 12 meeting. Multiple sources have reported that Arthur Seymour Jr., Knoxville’s prominent land-use attorney, has been hired, but it is unclear whom

From page A-1 he will represent. Seymour declined to comment when asked whether he is representing the Howard family or the developer.

MCS Services: Collateral damage Last Thursday morning, the slogan on the MCS Services Inc. website said, “Providing Apple Computer solutions since 1978 – 13,488 days, 12 hours, 52 minutes and 54 seconds!” It is one of the oldest independent Apple stores in the USA. If Walmart is the ultimate in big-box development, MCS Services is its antithesis. The modest, 1,200-square-foot Apple shop at 2831 N. Broadway could become collateral damage if the plan to build a

Taylor can talk about it and show you original photos, movies, records (78 rpm) or articles. Taylor claims to know everything there is to know about Roy Acuff and owns

He has met most of them, has gone to school with others or his kids went to school with them. To say his Tennessee roots run deep doesn’t even

Walmart grocery store next door goes through. MCS rents from Centerpointe Church, its neighbor to the north. The church also owned a parcel on the south side of the MCS parking lot that has already been sold. The new tenant will be a 24-hour check-cashing/ short-term loan company, sources say. Allen Tallent, who went to work at MCS 27 years ago and bought it in 2001 from the original owners, is facing an uncertain future. He and employee Jonathan Thawley say they weren’t surprised when they started hearing rumors around Christmastime because the church had already sold the property next door. The Walmart rumors started sometime thereafter. MCS no longer sells computers but carries a wide array of Apple accessories,

does in-store and on-site service with a concentration on Apple products, data recovery and some PC repairs. If Tallent loses his lease, he says he’d like to stay in North Knoxville but that the decision may not be entirely up to him. “We have a contract with Apple, tied to our location, and I could possibly lose my contract if I have to move.” What would he do if that happened? “Make a living without it.”

Eric Satz has modest record for TVA board Mayor Rogero appropriately issued a statement of condolence and concern for the tragic stabbing that occurred May 3 on the Third Creek Greenway and pledged to increase police presence on greenways.

Victor Ashe

The questions that need to be asked are how many additional officers will be deployed and what is their schedule in general terms? Secondly, how long will this increase in police activity on the greenways last? No one asked that of our mayor’s communications office. Greenways are an important part of what makes Knoxville special. Users must feel they are safe. Chief David Rausch is an able police officer who deserves to have regular weekly meetings with our mayor. ■ President Obama has slighted East Tennessee by nominating Nashville resident Eric Satz to the TVA board to replace Neil McBride, whose term expired two years ago. East Tennessee now has no one serving on the nine-member board while Middle and West Tennessee have four members. It is very important with the TVA headquarters being in Knoxville that at least one member be from Knoxville or the surrounding area. If Satz is confirmed it may be two or more years before Knoxville and our region sees a board member. Satz merits scrutiny by our two senators given his modest record for serving on the board. His own U.S. Rep., Jim Cooper, a Democrat and Obama supporter in 2008, does not know him and was not consulted

by the Obama White House on this appointment. Satz is also considered difficult to work with and high maintenance for staff. He is not good at returning phone calls. Is he a nice guy? My inquiries tell me he is the recommendation of Democratic fundraiser Bill Freeman, who is now running for Nashville mayor. Freeman is a mega-bundler for the Obama campaigns, which apparently counts for more than what our congressional delegation thinks. The good news is that the U.S. Senate is under new management and must confirm the Satz choice if he is to go on the board. He is a venture capitalist with at least one failure on his record. That was Plumgood Food, a grocery delivery service in Davidson County for organic and natural foods. It folded in 2008, which Satz blames on the economy and not on the work of him and his wife, Kate. Forty people lost their jobs. There should be extensive research into his qualifications. Hopefully Sens. Corker and Alexander will hold out for an East Tennessee appointment. They have the power to halt this nomination from going forward. ■ Bob Gilbertson, owner of Bob’s Liquor and Wine Stores on North Winston Road, has sold his store to a Nashville firm effective in July. Gilbertson achieved international attention last year when he refused to sell Russian vodka in protest of Putin’s invasion of Crimea. It’s unclear if the new owner will maintain the same policy. He has owned the popular store for 43 years. ■ House Speaker Beth Harwell, a potential GOP candidate for governor in 2018, will be at a fundraiser for state Rep. Roger Kane from 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. tomorrow (May 14) at Don Gallo Mexican Grill on Hardin Valley Road off Pellissippi Parkway.

There’s no word on the evil oxbow. Does it still lurk beneath Broadway, awaiting the next big rain? Or was it straightened out? Best wishes to Brent Johnson. Managing storm water is a thankless task, and he’s done it well. – S. Clark

began accepting applications at 8 a.m. May 12 and will continue to do so until 1 p.m. Thursday, May 21. The federal Section 8 Housing Choice Voucher program provides qualified applicants with money to rent an appropriate place to live from private property owners. “Last year we had 1,700 people apply, but only 700 were actually eligible to receive Section 8 support,” said Deborah Taylor-Allen, KCDC’s housing director. The waiting list gives preference first to displaced people, then to homeless people and finally to people with a disability, she said. Taylor-Allen said that applications are time-anddate stamped, with preference given to the people who apply the earliest. “Not all who apply will qualify to be on the list,” Taylor-Allen said. She said

that families who are “rentburdened” – have too high a rent for their income level – will not qualify unless they have been displaced from housing through no fault of their own, are homeless or have a disability. KCDC encourages people to apply online using their own computers or public computers at libraries and social agencies. The Section 8 office at 400 Harriet Tubman St. will have six computers available to applicants and will provide help to those who are not able to use a computer. The hours for the Harriet Tubman site are 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. daily until the process shuts down. Taylor-Allen said people on the list will be asked to fill out an in-depth questionnaire when their names come up. The Section 8 staff expects that it will take a year to go through the list. “This process is a lot bet-

ter than it used to be,” she said. “We had people on the list for four years between 2010 and 2014. People would move or lose their qualifications to be on the list.” The shorter application window means the process will be much more manageable and the wait will be much shorter, she said. KCDC has the capability to issue up to 4,000 vouchers. Currently the office is overseeing about 3,700 Section 8 leases between property owners and tenants. Taylor-Allen expects between 500 and 600 to apply in the office. “We will shut down and do nothing but applications for two days solid,” she said. “Last year 588 people came here to this office to apply. “We’re here to help people get into homes. We’re trying to get the homeless off the streets.”

Wimberly recalls Monkey Trial Last week, on May 5, 90 years to the day after Rhea County High School teacher John Scopes agreed to get himself indicted for teaching evolution, former Circuit Judge Harold Wimberly led a conversation at an event called the Southern Railway Stump S p e e c h about the Trial of the 20th Century, demWimberly on s t r at i ng the chops that made him a hometown hero as a member of the University of Tennessee’s 1962 G.E.

After the book got ditched, the UT president fired a bunch of professors who had participated in the protest, and Neal, who had been only peripherally involved, got the boot as well. The following March, the state Legislature ratified the university’s position by passing the Butler Act, which prohibited teaching human evolution and became the basis for prosecuting Scopes, who

Bob Woodruff remembered, finally Thirty years after Bob Woodruff retired and 13 years and six months after he died, the Greater Knoxville Sports Hall of Fame has found him worthy of enshrinement. If he were alive, Bob would be speechless. He often was. Woodruff did some very interesting things as Tennessee athletic director, 1963-1985. Before he even got the job, he had Doug Dickey penciled in as the new football coach. Without realizing it, Bob hired geniuses to coach track and swimming. All he really knew about Chuck Rohe and Ray Bussard was they didn’t cost much. Far over my head was Woodruff’s concept of encapsulation, a seasonal bubble over part of Neyland Stadium to house a basket-

ball arena. As you know, more conventional wisdom prevailed. I admired the way Woodruff outmaneuvered Joe Paterno and arranged back-toback football games against Penn State in Knoxville. Woodruff generated many and large donations and greatly improved Tennessee’s athletic facilities. He wasn’t much for patting himself on the back, and because he never ran for public office, many never heard of his accomplishments. Privately, Woodruff was

known for long pauses in what others thought was conversation. I was once the young sportswriter who asked penetrating questions that still haven’t been answered. I never knew if extended silence meant he was shaping thoughts or just waiting until I went away. “Bob was the oratorical equivalent of a blocked punt” was the single most descriptive sentence about the former Volunteer tackle. Woodruff, dumb like a fox, never debated the subject. Woodruff was born in Athens, Ga., went to high school in Savannah and was a better student than athlete at Tennessee. Robert R. Neyland asked him to stay on after graduation. He was an assistant coach for three seasons.

During World War II, Woodruff was an Army officer in the corps of engineers. Highlight was two years as an assistant coach under Earl Blaik at West Point. Bob concluded military service as a major. Woodruff coached for ex-Vol Bobby Dobb at Georgia Tech, exceeded expectations as head coach at Baylor and hit a jackpot at Florida. The Gators wanted him so badly, the Florida Board of Control approved a ridiculous offer, a sevenyear guaranteed contract at $17,000 per year, far more than the university president was receiving. Woodruff was 34. Frank Broyles of later Arkansas fame became Woodruff’s offensive coordinator. Unexpected developments forced Dickey, a reserve defensive back, into a quarter-

government was found guilty and fined $100 but subsequently had his conviction overturned. Wimberly turned cryptic when Clay Crownover, a public relations guy who represents the Blue Slip Winery and the Historic Southern Railway Station and is the organizer of the Southern Railway Stump Speech, asked him to draw parallels between the Monkey Trial and modern-day educational controversies. “Anything is possible,” Wimberly said, with the faintest of smiles on his face. Wimberly declined to directly address the bill making the Bible Tennessee’s official state book –

which passed, but wasn’t signed into law because of constitutional problems – or any of the other legislative forays into textbook censorship or the promotion of creationism. But it was easy to connect the historical dots. Crownover, who labels himself “a Joe Biden Democrat,” said he envisions the Stump Speeches as a way to air issues that don’t get talked about enough, particularly issues that pertain to the history of Knoxville. “I’d like for people to say what they think regardless of consequences and take the heat from the people in the audience.”

back vacancy. Doug saved a season. Woodruff coached Florida from 1950 through 1959. His teams won a few more than they lost. Two played in bowls. One Gator, talking out of school, told of a Woodruff pre-game exhortation, an adjusted version of a Neyland maxim: “Remember, the team that makes the fewest mistakes makes the fewest mistakes.” All-American tackle Charlie LaPradd said his coach’s long periods of silence “would make you wonder if he was 30 minutes ahead of you or 30 minutes behind.” Eventually, Woodruff wore out his Gator welcome. He dabbled in the oil and gas business, then returned to Tennessee as line coach for Bowden Wyatt. When Wyatt was fired, Woodruff and Jim McDonald locked up in a death

struggle for the job. Players favored McDonald. He became interim coach. Consolation prize? Woodruff became interim athletic director. McDonald’s team went 5-5. Woodruff, expert at reading tea leaves, kept his eyes on Dickey, assistant at Arkansas. The moment of truth came on the evening of Nov. 30, 1963, after the Tennessee-Vanderbilt game. In a bitter three-hour argument, one faction of the UT athletic board wanted to bring home Murray Warmath, Minnesota coach. Andy Holt, UT president, favored those who supported Woodruff’s leadership. Stormy meeting, close call, feelings forever fractured, but a legend was born. I say the forthcoming Hall of Fame recognition is richly deserved.

In the world of veterinary medicine, women far outnumber men pursuing a career in this field, if the University of Tennessee C olThompson lege of Veterinary Medicine is any indication. Women make up 80 percent of the students coming into the school, Dean Jim Thompson said. “The number of women applying to veterinary school is increasing yearly.” Thompson spoke to the Rotary Club of Knoxville, providing an overview of the school and its history. The school has more than doubled the number of students accepted into the program since its first group of 40 students in 1976. The program, which has a graduation rate of about 90 percent, has graduated 35 classes and produced 2,200 veterinarians. “Across the nation, there are only 86,000 veterinarians. So there aren’t very many,” said Thompson,

whose discussion was laced with humor. “You could take every veterinarian in the United States, and they could all watch the Volunteers play football on Saturday.” The college has several areas of focus including teaching students to become excellent veterinarians, serving as a resource to practicing veterinarians, treating patients with quality care and researching new ways to treat animals and people, he said. In addition, the college has four different hospitals: equine, farm, small and exotic animals. “There was a time when we brought the lions and tigers into the large animal hospital. If you were a horse,” he said, pausing, drawing loud laughter from the audience. “Even though you would have the cage, just the smell of a big cat would stress out the horse population. So we recognized a need to build a bay and exotic animal hospital that was away from the horses so we could separate the populations.” Thompson encouraged audience members to visit the school during its annual open house, usually in April.

After a very healthy surge in March, local real estate and lending markets returned to a more modest level of activity in April. There Witt were 918 property transfers recorded in Knox County. While that figure was more than 100 short of the March recordings, it easily bested last April’s total of 821 sales. The total value of property sold during April fell some $45 million short of the March aggregate, as around $176 million worth of real estate changed hands. The value of property sold in April of last year was just over $205 million. Mortgage lending continued

at a healthy pace in April. About $317.2 million was loaned against real estate in Knox County, some $65 million more than the lending data from April 2014. The largest real estate transfer recorded in April involved multiple parcels on Midpark Drive in the Middlebrook Pike area. The total sale price listed for the transaction was $4,383,750. The largest loan recorded in April was a Deed of Trust in the amount of $13 million secured by property known as Windover Apartments located in the Deane Hill community. Thus far in 2015, both lending and property sales continue to run ahead of 2014 levels. The total number of transfers recorded through April 30 is nearly 400 more than the number recorded during the first four months of 2014.

Conversation builds faith and friendship

The temple tax

By Wendy Smith Recently, nine native Mandarin speakers gathered around a table with Robin Nelson, an ESL (English as a Second Language) teacher at Northwest Middle School. They played Apples to Apples, a word game she uses to teach English vocabulary. Try as she might, Nelson couldn’t convey the meaning of one word − Cheetos − even with the help of hand gestures. She solved the problem by pulling up a picture of a Cheetos bag on her phone. “Ohhhh. Cheetos,” they said, in a chorus, as she passed the phone around. Nelson, a member of the Laurel Church of Christ, 3457 Kingston Pike, teaches at the church’s FriendSpeak conversational English program. The program began after students at the Christian Student Center, the church’s UT campus ministry headquarters, began hosting Thanksgiving dinners for students from the nearby International House. Church member Danny Brewer recalls that seven students attended the first class on Jan. 16, 1991 − the day of the first air attacks in the Gulf War. Initially, the program offered formal classes on a variety of subjects, from geology to American culture. But the students preferred one-onone time with church members in order to practice

faith Jesus spoke of it first, asking, “What do you think, Simon? From whom do kings of the earth take toll or tribute? From their children or from others?” When Peter said, “From others,” Jesus said to him, “Then the children are free. However, so that we do not give offense to them, go to the sea and cast a hook; take the first fish that comes up, and when you open its mouth, you will find a coin; take that and give it to them for you and me.” (Matthew 17: 25b-27 NRSV)

Mandarin teacher Yun Liu participates in the Laurel Church of Christ FriendSpeak English conversation program with Norris Cline. Photo by Wendy Smith English and develop relationships. While Brewer, a founding member of Brewer Ingram Fuller Architects, enjoys his career, the role he’s played in the FriendSpeak program has been even more rewarding, he says. “It’s the greatest thing I’ve ever done.” Dozens of internationals now attend the class, held at 7 p.m. on Wednesdays at the church building. Internationals are also invited to a congregational dinner before the class, free of charge. Participants can choose to use a FriendSpeak workbook based on Bible stories or focus on conversation. The program began with international students in mind, but it now serves a growing number of refugees, immigrants and workers from foreign coun-

tries, says Doug Woodall, a FriendSpeak coordinator. He calls the program “friendship evangelism.” He’s found that conversation partners are more open to learning about the Bible once they’ve gotten to know their American partners and seen how they live their lives. Most are curious to learn about Christianity because they know it plays an important role in American culture, he says. “The program gives the opportunity to do just what Jesus told us to do − make disciples of all nations. Only here, we don’t have to go anywhere. They come to us.” Conversation partners can become lifelong friends. Norris Cline has been meeting with Yun Liu, who goes by Vickie, since February of last year. Vickie teaches Mandarin through a Con-

fucius Institute exchange program, and her son, William, a 7th-grader at Farragut Middle School, lives in Knoxville with her. Not only have Vickie and William spent time at the home of Norris and his wife, Salli, but the Clines have visited them at their permanent home in Hangzhou in the Zhejiang province of China. The Clines make regular trips to China and plan to return in May. Salli is surprised by how quickly a bond develops between partners. She recently planned to take a break from the program, but agreed to meet with a grandmother from Iran. By the end of the evening, they were good friends. She has given up on taking a break. “By the end of the session, I can’t wait for the next one,” she says.

Money is a delicate subject, especially in church circles. A preacher who preaches about money is considered greedy. A preacher who preaches about tithing is branded as money-hungry, and possibly over-reaching. However, Jesus had more to say about money than almost any other subject in the Gospels. He knew the human heart; he knew the pull of the world. He knew money was a necessary tool in society, but a dangerous one to mere mortals. Just before April 15, I had to go to the bank to transfer some money from savings to checking to pay my taxes. I laughingly said something to the teller about having “to render unto Caesar.” She looked at me blankly, and said, “Excuse me?” I translated for her, ex-

plaining it was a quote from the Bible. “Oh,” she said, still confused. I wondered if she knew what the Bible was, but decided not to ask. There are those people who derive their self-esteem from money. There are those who love money. There are those who claim to need no money. There are those who have no money at all, but desperately need it. The ultimate money question is “Do you own your money, or does it own you?”

Sewing sisters of Salem By Cindy Taylor A group of more than 15 industrious believers at Salem Baptist Church are sisters in more than just worship. These women currently meet weekly to sew but plan to double that time to finish a major project. Mabel Harrell, Salem member since 2002, leads the group. “In the past we worked mostly filling shoeboxes,” said Harrell “This year I felt the Lord leading me to do a mission for needy children in Appalachia.” The women are sewing fleece blankets for children of one school in Bell County, Ky. They are also making dresses for the girls, pants for the boys and backpacks for all the children. Children three years old to 8th grade are being helped. All materials are donated by the members themselves. Harrell says any available jobs in the area of the school are more than 25

miles away, pay only minimum wage and barely pay for the gas for parents to get to work. She has been told that 82 percent of the families fall below the federal poverty level. “We hope to attend an awards ceremony at the school and take them award shirts,” said Harrell. “This school has students who are

winning state competitions.” The connection came through local resident Jimmie Hodges who has worked with 18 different missions in the past 17 years. He travels for various ministries located in Appalachia, Canada and Michigan. Hodges shares a heart-wrenching story about what got him started in missions.

“I had a woman call me from Michigan, I have no idea how she got my number, but she told me about three children who died from exposure while waiting on a school bus,” said Hodges. “So I started collecting coats and taking them there.” Salem Sewing Sisters plan

to travel to Kentucky to deliver the items before school is out this spring. They have another trip planned for December. The women are looking for donations of used sewing machines, fabric and any sewing notions. To donate call the church office at 922-3490. Anyone who would like to join the group is always welcome.

“When I see new people come into the church I introduce myself and the first thing I ask is if they can sew. Our class is growing and they look forward to going to Kentucky to meet the families we are helping,” said Harrell. “Anything you do for these children they have probably never had done before.”

A fond farewell to By Carol Shane This week marks maestro Lucas Richman’s final concerts with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra. The busy composer/conductor is on to new adventures in Maine, where he’s now maestro of the Bangor Symphony Orchestra, and elsewhere. He’s eagerly anticipating CD releases of three of his compositions, including his spectacular piano concerto, premiered here in Knoxville during the 2013-2014 season. He’s launching his own website, www.lucasrichman. com, and looking forward to another world premiere of one of his compositions in June, a music festival in July, and a workshop – BMI’s “Conducting for the Film Composer” – in Los Angeles in August. The man never stops. But Richman is in town this week and feeling reflective about his time in Knoxville. What moments and performances stand out for him during the past 12 years? He says, “It would be very difficult to make a short list. However, I would have to include our ‘Amadeus’ and ‘Sweeney Todd’ collaborations with the Clarence Brown Theatre; conducting Aaron Copland’s ‘A Lincoln Portrait’ with my father, Peter Mark Richman, serving as the narrator; ‘Peter and the Wolf’ with Ed Grimley (Martin Short) as the narrator; recording [his original] song, ‘We Share a Bond,’ for breast cancer awareness.” He also names among his fondest memories “each time we hired a new member to the orchestra’s roster.” Richman’s most lasting legacy will no doubt be his “Music and Wellness” initiative. “There is no question

that the power of music can extend beyond the concert hall and touch our daily lives in whatever we do, providing multiple benefits as a source of healing and therapy,” he says. “I knew from my experiences in ‘Music and Wellness’ in Los Angeles and Pittsburgh that it was important for us to introduce it to the Knoxville community.” At first there was much uncertainty among KSO staff members about how the program might be developed locally. “But,” Richman says, “after we had had a meeting that brought our symphony musicians together with health-care professionals, we were able to begin shaping a collaborative program that could serve the needs of the patients, caregivers, visitors and musicians alike.” Richman says that the response over the past 10 years “has been incredibly positive on the part of all the participants.” He hopes the program will expand and that other communities might consider incorporating some of the ideas into

Photo by Carol Shane their own health-care institutions. “If our artistic mission is to embrace the central idea of touching the entire community inside and outside of the concert hall through the power of music, the ‘Music and Wellness’ program is clearly helping to fulfill that goal.” And then there’s Picardy Penguin. Even if you don’t know who he is, there’s a good chance your elementaryschool-age children might. The big bright cartoon character is the star of Richman’s “Very Young People’s Concerts” and is responsible for introducing thousands of area youngsters to the basics of music. Projected on a screen above the orchestra, he sings, he dances, he takes pratfalls – all that good stuff. Kids howl so much at his antics that they don’t even realize they’re learning. “When children are exposed to music in early childhood they feel more comfortable express-

ing themselves in artistic modes or even non-artistic modes,” Richman says. He believes that when children learn to express themselves through the arts, they are more likely to grow up to be well-adjusted adults. “It is imperative,” he stresses, “that we devote an ever-increasing amount of energy into educating children and adults, pressing home the point that art and music are needed, in fact, as a fundamental basic in life.” After this week he’ll return to Maine, where wife Debbie and son Max are happily settled in a big, airy house in the woods. Next season, the KSO will perform under an array of impressive conductors, and musicians and board members will choose the next maestro. But for now they’re bidding a fond farewell to Lucas Richman. “A life without music,” he says, “is a life devoid of color and interest.” Send story suggestions to news@

Ham ’n Goody’s

By Mystery Diner


time Mystery Diner sets foot in the bakery. The best specialty sandwiches at Ham ’n Goody’s build on the bakery’s strengths: wonderfully baked ham and turkey and fresh, soft homemade bread. There’s a good Reuben and a vegetarian, but we chose the Cisco. The best thing about the Cisco is that it takes away the hardest part of eating at the bakery: deciding between ham and turkey. The soft wheat bread is piled with honey ham, basted turkey breast, melted smoked cheddar and Swiss cheeses, mayo, lettuce and tomato and has a dill pickle on the side. The cranberry salad is the perfect accompaniment, but you can pick the pasta salad or fresh fruit cup if you want. Desserts will drive you crazy, and there isn’t a bad one in the case. Choose whatever dessert strikes your fancy to eat there and get a few lemon cookies to go. Don’t leave without a lemon cookie. I’m serious. Just don’t.

Tom Hardy and Charlize Theron join forces in “Mad Max: Fury Road.”

Anna Kendrick and Rebel Wilson, front, face new obstacles in “Pitch Perfect 2.”

‘Mad Max’ reboots; ‘Pitch Perfect 2’ resounds By Betsy Pickle ’Tis the season for sequels and remakes, and we get one of each this week. OK, so technically, “Mad Max: Fury Road” isn’t a remake of either the original “Mad Max” (1979) or its sequel, “The Road Warrior” (1981). Instead, director George Miller describes it as a reboot. But fans of the original trilogy (which also includes 1985’s “Mad Max Beyond Thunderdome”) have some high standards for this new version to attempt to match. Tom Hardy stars as Max Rockatansky, a man of action and few words driving the bleak post-apocalyptic landscape in search of peace of mind after losing his wife and child. Charlize Theron plays Imperator Furiosa, a woman of action trying to reach the peace of her childhood homeland. Together, they may be able to restore some order to the chaos of their times. The cast also includes Nicholas Hoult and Zoe Kravitz. “Pitch Perfect 2” reunites the Barden Bellas in a comic story of redemption. After a disastrous performance at Lincoln Center, the a cappella group enters an international

competition never won before by an American group. They hope to restore their reputation and standing, but their mission has multiple obstacles. The sequel marks the full-lengthfeature-directing debut of Elizabeth Banks. If she’s as good at directing comedies as she is acting in them (“Zack and Miri Make a Porno”), “Pitch Perfect 2” could be a hoot. The film stars Anna Kendrick, Rebel Wilson, Hailee Steinfeld, Alexis Knapp, Brittany Snow, Katey Sagal and Banks. Also opening this week is “Where Hope Grows,” a feel-good movie about faith and ability. Kristoffer Polaha plays a baseball player whose career fell victim to his personal problems. He gets a new perspective on life when he meets an upbeat grocery-store worker with Down syndrome. Also starring are David DeSanctis, Danica McKellar, William Zabka, Kerr Smith and Brooke Burns. Chris Dowling (“Rock Slyde”) directed. David DeSanctis (front) and Kristoffer Polaha find their groove in “Where Hope Grows.”

Greaux, Mazzara recognized in ‘Who’s Who’ The Tennessee Health Care Association (THCA)/ Tennessee Center for Assisted Living (TNCAL) has named Idalia Greaux and Katharina Mazzara, residents at Beverly Park Place Health and Rehab, to its annual “Who’s Who in Tennessee Long-term Care.” Honorees in this year’s recognition program include military heroes, educators, entertainers and other elders living in THCA/ TNCAL member nursing homes and assisted living communities statewide. Greaux was born in Puerto Rico in 1930 and speaks three languages, English, French and Spanish. She met her husband at a salsa dance, and they had 10 children. She worked with her husband on their farm and on the tour bus that he drove. She also developed a French perfume. Mazzara was born in Germany and raised in a convent in Italy. She speaks both German and Italian and says she makes the best spaghetti. She enjoys cooking, knitting and crocheting, and often makes quilts and jewelry for other residents. Last Christmas she made all of the decorations for her floor’s Christmas tree, which won the award for best tree. “This year’s theme is ‘This is your Life,’ ” THCA executive director Jesse Samples said. “Ninety-four nursing homes and assisted care living facilities shared their residents’ fascinating life stories, and it is a privilege to recognize these men and women for their achievements.” Greaux and Mazzara will each receive a Who’s Who certificate of achievement during National Nursing Home Week and their profiles will be featured on THCA’s website,

Therapy helps stroke patient recover with style Jane Everett, 70, a hair stylist in Lenoir City, calls herself a stroke survivor. “I like that word, because I survived,” said Everett, who attends the monthly Stroke Support Group at the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center. “It doesn’t mean you don’t have frustration. But you want that in the past tense, and you want to move on. And I feel like we are (survivors), I really do.” On the morning of April 21, 2014, Everett collapsed in her garage after buckling one of her granddaughters, 4-year-old C.J., into her car seat. Her husband, Charlie Everett, called 911, while C.J. held her grandmother’s hand. Unable to talk or move, Jane Everett had one thought. “I thought, I am not leaving these babies and my daughter and husband,” she said. “I didn’t know you could make a decision like that, but at that moment I did.” The Everetts are no strangers to medical emergencies. In 1981 Charlie Everett had a diving accident and broke his C6 vertebra. He is paralyzed from the chest down, although he has use of his hands and arms. He learned to use a wheelchair for mobility at the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center, which had opened only three years before his accident. “He just had such courage, he really did,” said Jane Everett of her husband of 52 years. “We have adjusted, although the first 10 years were tough, because he was such an athletic man. Now I’m glad we’ve made it.” After her stroke, Everett received emergency medical care at Parkwest Medical Center, which stabilized her and gave her the clot-busting drug tPA. Doctors then sent her to Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center to have the blood clot removed, a highly specialized treatment. After a week in the hospital, there was no question about

Jane and Charlie Everett at their Lenoir City home. Both have been patients at the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center.

Jane Everett, right, in her beauty salon, Hair Originals & Wigs in Lenoir City, with her assistant Donna Hartline. Everett lost part of her hair after her stroke. Today she helps other women with medical hair loss find beautiful wigs for their recovery. She also sells fashion clip-in extensions and weaves. “I think wigs are on the verge of making a huge comeback,” she said.

where Everett would go for therapy: Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center. “When I got there my left side was completely paralyzed. I couldn’t walk, couldn’t move my left arm at all, or my left hand. It was drawn up to my chest,” said Everett. “The first morning out, they got me up and into the shower,” said Everett. “They start teaching you how to take care of yourself immediately. “At Patricia Neal, you have therapy five hours a day, and it’s

all parts of your body and your mind and emotions, and your attitude,” said Everett. “Those therapists were phenomenal. They encouraged you, no matter what.” With Jane Everett being so sick, Charlie Everett stepped into the caregiver role. “My daughter and Charlie both have been so compassionate and caring and helpful. He took it for

granted I would always be here to take care of him, and so did I.” Having a husband in a wheelchair put things in perspective, she said. “I’d look at my husband and think I’m so upset because my arm isn’t working, but what’s it like to wake up and nothing works from the neck down? It’s given me a lot more compassion for his situation.”

After three weeks at Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center and a year of continuing outpatient therapy at Parkwest Therapy Center closer to her home, Everett has begun to do some hair styling work again. Her salon, Hair Originals, is in her basement. Everett’s assistant and a friend who is a retired hair stylist kept the business going while she recovered. “I have loved every moment of my career. I love doing hair,” said Everett. “It lets me create, and I have relationships with these people. A lot of my clients were with me when I moved here 35 years ago. I miss that camaraderie, that hands-on designing.” While still working to regain full dexterity in her hand, Everett has found a new way of working in the field. For reasons she doesn’t know, Everett’s hair fell out in clumps after her stroke. It’s beginning to grow back, but she bought and wears a wig. Today she helps other women with medical hair loss find wigs that look good on them. She also sells fun clip-on extensions, bangs and clip-in colored streaks as well. “I feel like it’s a way for me to be able to carry on in my career without as much physical stress to the body,” she said. “I also think there’s something about wanting to give back to people. I have felt a lot of frustration and fear, and I think if you’ve been there you have more of an understanding. “I’m not sure something good comes out of everything, but I do believe that what we classify as bad or tragic can sometimes be the best challenges of our lives. I think we have that choice,” said Everett. “We are so fortunate in Knoxville to have the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center. They are so professional, all the way. That’s what gets you to where I am today,” she said.

Customized therapy for local rehabilitation patients There is no “one-size-fits-all” therapy program at the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center. “Each patient has their own therapy program designed just for them,” said Ashley Hamilton, senior recreational therapist. From doctors and nurses to therapists of every specialty, a team of experts works together to find what each patient needs. “The first day or two a patient is here, we’ll spend time doing evaluations so that the therapists and doctors will get a baseline of where the patient is functionally,” said Hamilton. “Physical therapy works on mobility, like walking up stairs and using a wheelchair. Speech

therapists assess the patient’s cognitive level, memory, auditory comprehension, verbal expression and problem solving skills,” she said. “Recreational therapy evaluates quality of life and leisure interests prior to the stroke. What

Ashley Hamilton, senior recreational therapist at PNRC, spent time in Guatemala, where she worked with the Wheels for the World program.

were their hobbies and how can we help them get back to that? And occupational therapy helps them with things like eating, bathing, dressing and using the restroom.” Together the team and the patient set short- and long-term goals. “The patient’s long-term goal might be to reel a fishing pole again. So our goal is to strengthen the muscles necessary to do that,” Hamilton said. “Most people say I want to walk again. Or I want to be able to stand up, or I just want to get better and go home. “The therapists customize a treatment program for that patient based on the goals, and the

next several weeks of therapy are spent trying to attain those goals,” she said. “If the patient’s goal is to stand up but they’re not ready, they’ll work on muscles necessary to stand. They’ll do leg exercise and stretching first.” The Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center helps patients with a wide variety of medical needs, from stroke and cancer patients to brain and spinal cord injuries and amputations. “We have people coming in with all different abilities,” said Hamilton. “Everybody’s goals are different. Therapy will be difficult for all, but it’ll be worth it.”
