Sign task force looks for consensus By Betty Bean The push to make Knoxville a more beautiful city and the pushback from businesses that rely on signage to drive customers to their doors have made the work of City Council’s Sign Ordinance Task Force a challenging enterprise. They went to work in February 2012 and hope to finish soon.

Analysis Can both Joyce Feld and Bill Weigel walk away happy? (Feld chairs Scenic Knoxville, which opposes big signs. Weigel is CEO of the local chain of convenience stores that has 80 outlets bearing his name and has a longestablished brand, promoted via signage and distinctive façade.) “That was a challenge, but they’ve both been great,” said task force chair Duane Grieve, who represents the beautification-conscious Bearden area on City Council. “This task force has been dedicated, sincere and a good cross-representation. I’ll bet there’s been less than 10 percent absenteeism.” He said the assistance of MPC

director Mark Donaldson has been invaluable. Grieve started the task force’s work by putting everyone on a bus and touring the city. He said one impression was shared by almost everyone, whatever their point of view: “Hey, there are a lot of abandoned signs out there.” Grieve said there is a lot of agreement that lowering sign height will be a good thing, and he’s hoping the county will follow the city’s lead in these matters. Feld says aesthetics are good for business, especially in thriving business districts where regulations are the most stringent. “A wonderful example is the revitalization of downtown and Market Square. Signage is highly regulated there, but the economy in that area is thriving and has pulled new businesses and residents. And look at Turkey Creek – when they developed it, they removed six to eight billboards that were already there. They have no signs taller than six feet and they’re all monument signs, other than the primary directory signs on the interstate. It has been a resounding success.”

City Council member George Wallace co-chairs the task force. He is a Realtor and advocates a more cautious approach. He says most of the comments he’s heard during public forums boil down to three things: “First, people are asking us to be reasonable and fair. Second, special consideration should be given to interstate interchanges – hotels, fast food. These are not in neighborhoods and it’s all about trying to drive traffic. Third, keep in mind that we’re still Knoxville. This is a community that has a certain style, a certain feel. Let’s don’t overstep our bounds.” Knoxville’s Sign Ordinance Task Force will hold its final meeting at 4 p.m. Wednesday, May 22, at the KCDC building, 901 N. Broadway, before handing the new ordinance over to the Metropolitan Planning Commission, where it must be approved on two readings before being returned to City Council for deliberation – and two more readings. Written comments will be accepted until Wednesday.

Town Hall wants monument sign for Chick-fil-A Fountain City Town Hall president Ken Cloninger is still waiting for a response to the April 24 letter he sent to Chick-fil-A’s corporate headquarters regarding the 40-foot pole-mounted sign planned for the new store on Broadway at Rennoc Road. Earlier in the month, town hall’s general membership voted to ask Chickfil-A to install a 12-foot monument sign instead. “The newer commercial development located in the (Broadway) corridor approaching the lake and park has developed with lower, monument signs, rather than tall pole signs. The monument design and lower height is a more effective and more pleasing sign, especially in this sensitive historic area, far from any interstate,” the letter said. Cloninger said he is optimistic that the Atlanta-based fast food chain will be willing to accommodate the community and lower the sign height, as it did in Bearden recently. “I don’t think it would benefit them to have a sign that tall. As small as Fountain City is, everybody’s going to know where they are.” – B. Bean 2704 Mineral Springs Ave. Knoxville, TN 37917 Ph. (865) 687-4537

Mr. Perry goes to Washington Turns out the rent is higher in the Washington, D.C. suburbs than it is in Kailua, Hawaii.

Asked what it’s like to be leaving paradise for a concrete jungle, he just grins. “I’ll be able to fit the car into a parking space.” Perry, a 1996 Halls High graduate, joined the U.S. Army Reserves that February, was later called to fulltime duty, and has made it a career.

I’ve seen lots of folks who start racing in their teens, then they get busy raising a family and run out of time and money. But once the kids are gone, they come back to it,” says Chuck Varner, long-time owner of the dragway, and owner still of The Hot Rod Barn on Broadway in Fountain City. Varner’s always been in tune with the hot rod crowd, selling high performance parts to racers for decades. He’s a 1964 graduate of Halls High, and now lives in an historic log home in White Pine with his wife of 40-plus years, Carol. “The downturn in the economy didn’t kill us here at the parts shop. People are gonna have their toys,” said Varner. Knoxville Dragstrip didn’t start out as a straight track. Back in the mid-’60s, Eddie Harvey bought a big tract with a long flat piece of bottom land between Bull Run Creek and Maynardville Pike, on a curve that was soon to be bypassed when the new highway opened. That curve, now connected at both ends to the new highway, was renamed

Raceway Drive. “Daddy waited until the new highway was finished before he started excavating for a half-mile oval track. He designed it all himself, built it – with just about perfect banks – promoted the business, and ran it,” says Brian Harvey, Eddie’s youngest kid. Eddie, now 90, is retired on the family farm in the Ritta community where Brian and his late mother raised and trained Tennessee walking horses. The barns have been converted to garages, and Brian continues his father’s tradition of fixing things. “There are so many stories about my Daddy, we could write a book. He was into everything. As a teenager, he was such a good mechanic and welder, the Army used him stateside to work on

equipment during World War II. He was an accomplished artist, a racecar builder, a business owner, the list goes on. In the late ’40s, he built the swing sets at Fountain City Park,” says Brian. A few years after Eddie opened the racetrack, he changed it to do double duty as a figure-eight track, upping the excitement with racers balancing speed with avoiding T-bone collisions. A short while later, he wiped out the oval and redesigned it into an eighth-mile dragstrip. The only problem was, there wasn’t always enough room for stopping past the finish line. “We had a few end up in the creek,” says Varner. “When I bought the business, I backed up the start to get more length at the far end. That, and putting in barriers above the creek bank, pretty much solved the problem.” Eddie shut down the raceway in the ’70s, and Varner and a partner resurrected it in 1985. Varner sold out in 2000, when he says he just couldn’t keep the schedule any longer. “I was working six days a week at the Hot Rod Barn, running the race track a lot of weekends ’til late at night, and spending Sundays mowing at home. A body can’t

take it forever,” he says. The business has held its own through various owners since Varner, and, a couple of years ago, got two enthusiastic owners, Madisonville brothers T. J. and Tommy Harrill. “We’re seeing a lot of action and excitement, and we just love having the families here. We’ve got juniors with mini long cars, grandparents and parents backing young drivers, husbands and wives teaming up, older guys, clubs, you name it,” says Tommy. He mirrors Varner’s take on owning the dragstrip: “It’s a whole lot of work, so we have to love it to keep doing it.” It’s a nice place for some weekend fun. T. J. and Tommy have renovated the service facility, where the concession stand serves hot fresh food (including fried bologna sandwiches) and the bathrooms are clean and handy. The upper floor serves as offices and the

graduate during the school’s centennial year. “We first thought there was a graduating class that year (1913), but there wasn’t,” Hill says. “The first graduating class was in 1915.” He says the steering committee considered holding a special event at the Tennessee Theatre, the Knoxville Expo Center or at one of the churches in Corryton. But in the end, they chose the most logical place for the party. “Everybody wanted to be here, at Gibbs High.” Johnson played on the Gibbs High basketball team that beat Oak Ridge in March 1962 to prevent the Wildcats from advancing to the state tournament. “That was a big deal. And Gibbs went on a run there in the mid-1960s in which it had some great basketball teams.” Longmire is the granddaughter of alums Joe and Rebecca Longmire, whose community roots run deep. Rebecca was also the

school’s longtime librarian. Hill is going to share some personal memories, but mainly focus on the experience of a current high school student. He says he found a newspaper article stating that the school was built in 1913 for $12,000, which is less than the campus’ average monthly utility bill. Hill’s mother, Betty Byerly, and grandmother Bonnie Sharp both attended Gibbs High. He says by happenstance, he noticed that their photos (“Mom in 1949 as a cheerleader (and) my grandmother on the 1927 girls basketball team”) made it into this year’s Gibbs High annual without anyone knowing their identities. “And we have two graduates who are 100 and 103 years old who are planning on being here Friday night. “It’s been rewarding to speak with alumni, to sing with alumni and I’m just honored to be able to be the speaker for the present.”

The track is sanctioned by the International Hot Rod Association, and qualifying winners earn points toward championships and, hopefully, big sponsorships. County coffers receive thousands of dollars in sales tax from Knoxville Dragway’s revenue, the ambulance service is hired to stand by during every event, and sales of food, fuel and lodging to out of town racers benefit businesses all through the area. “Asphalt Assault,” was held yesterday (May 19). Smoky Mountain Harley Davidson sponsored the motorcycle event, a fundraiser for the Boys and Girls Club of

government Briggs and Mannis and more Knox County Commissioner Richard Briggs, a medical doctor, will have a fundraiser Thursday, May 23, at the Sequoyah Hills home of two other doctors, Penny Lynch and Kimbro Maguire. Briggs is challenging state Sen. Stacey Campfield, and the Republican primary is still a year away in August 2014. It promises to be a high profile race. State Rep. Steve Hall will be active for Campfield. ■ The resignation of Eddie Mannis as deputy mayor to Mayor Rogero after only 18 months has raised many eyebrows as to why his tenure was so brief. Some have speculated that Mannis, owner of Prestige Cleaners, did not adjust well to the slower pace of decision-making at city hall with lengthy consultations and committees slowing down decisions as opposed to quick action at his successful business. Others speculated that Prestige Cleaners needed Mannis back full-time. Whatever the real reasons may be, Mannis’s tenure was so short that his time may not be remembered for long. Additionally, Mannis may have experienced enough of governmental ways to abandon running for mayor in 2019 when Rogero is term-limited from seeking a third term. However, there will be no lack of mayoral contenders then, including at least two current members of city council. Mannis’s former home on Kingston Pike has now sold and he lives downtown. Many people did not feel Mannis was entirely happy with the pace of city government. ■ Christy Branscom, who is moving into Mannis’ office in a few weeks, is only $400 short of what Mannis makes in salary. Mannis is at $146,944 while Branscom is at $146,508. She will get the 2.5 percent pay raise on July 1, but city spokesperson Jesse Mayshark did not know if her salary will also bump to the Mannis level as well. The 2.5 percent will give her another $3,650 a year which will move her past $150,000. Mayor Rogero is set at $130,000 and cannot be changed except by council passing a separate ordi-

Victor Ashe

nance which would take effect when the mayor elected in 2015 takes office that December. At least five city employees now make more than Rogero, and the county mayor makes more than the city mayor. Don’t be surprised if Rogero leaves Branscom’s current job vacant and saves the city $154,000. With Branscom now deputy mayor, her soon-to-beformer position becomes much less important to be filled. ■ Pam Reeves appears to be on a glide path to a lifetime federal judgeship following Judge Tom Phillips who is resigning this summer. Both Sens. Alexander and Corker seem comfortable with her, and the state Democratic establishment led by U.S. Rep. Jim Cooper is for her. The White House has done extensive vetting before announcing the replacement so it can go to the U.S. Senate, where confirmations for federal district judges in the best of circumstances take at least 100 days from the day the paperwork goes to the Senate Judiciary Committee to a vote on the Senate floor. If that timetable holds, Reeves could be confirmed by early November. However, there are nominees for district judgeships in Georgia and Arizona where the wait has exceeded 500 days, according to the Wall Street Journal. That is not expected to be the case here. Reeves will likely be unable to hear any cases involving the city of Knoxville as her husband, Charles Swanson, is the city law director who would represent the city. The other federal judge, Thomas Varlan, who would be assigned many of those cases, is a former Knoxville city law director. Reeves will be the first woman to serve as a federal judge in the eastern district and is also highly popular and respected in the area.

McIntyre touts schools budget By Sandra Clark Dr. Jim McIntyre got so folksy that he actually said “y’all” when speaking about his budget goals last week in Powell. Everyone seemed happy. That’s a long way from last year when folks battled over McIntyre’s request for $35 million in new dollars which would have required a tax increase. McIntyre has not abandoned his goals, but he has become more realistic about the political climate of Knox County. This year’s budget calls for a increase of $13.39 million, which Mayor Tim Burchett says can be funded within available tax revenues. Big ticket items are: ■ $2.5 million for raises for non-certified school staff ■ $7.59 million for teacher pay increases (a blend of merit pay and 2.5 percent

Clark across-the-boards) ■ 1.72 million for enhanced school security (including the addition of 58 armed security guards, putting at least one in every school)

McIntyre said the budget allows Knox County Schools to sustain the gains made last year, including the reading initiative in grades 1-3 funded by $3 million of Burchett-found money.

KCS retains the instructional coaches put in place to help teachers and the community schools that joined Pond Gap at Norwood, Lonsdale and Green Magnet Academy. Knox County teacher pay ranks 35th in the state, he said, and that’s not good enough. Technology gains are included. McIntyre spoke of the 11 schools that were selected from the 28 that competed for 1:1 technology. That means extensive computer labs in elementary schools and a personal tablet or iPad in the hands of each middle and high school student. “We can put this technology in place (at 11 schools) and demonstrate success,” he said. “Technology will not replace teachers, but it will help them differentiate education for individual students.”

Sheriff’s Office online with dangerous dogs By Sandra Clark The Knox County Sheriff’s Office gets “a couple of calls a week” about serious dog bites, says Captain Bobby Hubbs. “And the trend is growing.” Hubbs and Animal Control officer Frankie Byrne spoke Friday to the Norwood Kiwanis Club at Puleo’s Grille on Merchants Drive. Byrne said 5,477 animal control calls came in during 2010. Examples include a young boy bitten by a neighbor’s dog, requiring five stitches to his hand. A woman required 50 stitches to her mouth after being attacked by her friend’s dog. Also common are animal-on-animal attacks. Animal Control includes livestock care, animal cruelty and neglect, owner education and rabies control. Byrne noticed an injured bird outside the restaurant before the meeting. “She picked it up and put it in her

Knox County ordinance Sec. 6-32 requires that all pets stay on their property at all times, unless being walked on a leash. Ordinance Sec. 6-72 cover the dangerous dog classifications.

‘Odd Couple’ draws interesting cast By Betty Bean One of Nita Buell Black’s major worries while preparing for “The Odd Couple” was casting the Pigeon Sisters. Specifically, the Powell Playhouse founder/ director feared that she wouldn’t find actors who could pull off playing the silly, giggly, flirtatious English sisters without lapsing into Americanese in unguarded moments. But when Lorna Pace and Diane Jones showed up to audition for the roles of Gwendolyn and Cecily, they were pitch perfect. Black was delighted.

The Pigeon Sisters, played by Lorna Pace and Diane Jones Photo by Nancy Anderson

Nita Buell Black, founding director of the Powell Playhouse “The time was coming to an end for auditions, and I really was getting concerned,” Black said. “But they showed up and tried out and I almost fell out of my seat. Afterward, I walked by them and they were still in that British mode, and I told them, ‘You really don’t have to do that.’” Everybody laughed. Because of course they do have to do that. They’re the real deal. While they’re not sisters, they’re as English as a good cup of tea. Pace is from northern England, near Manchester, Jones from St Albans, Hertfordshire, not far from London. And although it’s undetectable to the American ear, they say their accents are quite different. “She has a long A and I have a short A,” Pace said. “She says ‘gloss,’ and I say ‘glass.’” They are close friends and neighbors and naturalized citizens who have lived in the USA for 30plus years. They live in the same Farragut neighborhood and are both members of a philanthropic group called Daughters of the British Empire. Jones is a vice president of Pinnacle Financial Partners. Pace works at SES Group in Oak Ridge, where she does marketing and writes proposals. She heard about the play from colleagues Gina Jones (no relation) and Jeff Carter, who are also affiliated with Powell Playhouse and enlisted Diane Jones to come along for the audition. Gina conspired with Pace and Jones to surprise Black at the audition. And the Pigeon sisters aren’t the only cast members who are having a good time preparing for the play. Others are having fun, too. Some of Oscar and Felix’s four poker buddies – like Craig Taylor Brown (Murray the cop) and Scott Smith (Speed, the irritable perfectionist) and Steven Miller (Vinnie the lucky guy) – are experienced actors. The fourth, John Small (Roy the accountant), is a newbie. Smith, who plays the part of the Angel Gabriel in the Knoxville Nativity Pageant, says a big part of The Odd Couple’s appeal is because it is reminiscent of a simpler time. “It’s back when life wasn’t complicated,” he said. “Guys could spend time together, love each

other and like each other and just go off and be together and be friends.” “Except Vinnie,” Small said. “His wife’s always telling him what to do.” Brian Murphy, who owns the Gold Exchange and a gun store in Powell, plays the leering, lovable slob Oscar. Felix the neat freak is played by Flash Black, who is government relations chair of JDRF East Tennessee (the country’s leading Type 1 Diabetes research organization). Mur-

phy played Lt. Rooney in the playhouse production of Arsenic and Old Lace.

Celebration of life: Stokely Center Stokely Center is going, going … Nobody asked me to do the official eulogy. Considering the shortage of institutional memory, perhaps nobody realized I was there more than anybody not on the university payroll. I didn’t see it all but I was at courtside, in the offices and dressing room almost every day during the Ray Mears era and some before and after – a thousand practices, hundreds of games, a parade of special players, friends and foes, many who truly earned their historical niche. When the building was the UT Armory Fieldhouse and the godfathers wanted to name it for Robert R. Neyland, the General politely said thanks but no thanks. Being an engineer, he did not approve of the design or maybe he knew there would be a better offer. I recall the first game, 7271 over Wyoming, Dec. 2, 1958. I also remember 1962 and the last game of coach

John Sines’ 4-19 season. Attorney G. Edwin Friar was the only person seated in the big bleacher section behind the south goal. Attendance was 515. I suggested listing fans as survivors in the newspaper story. Sports editor Tom Siler vetoed that bright idea. Mears made a magical difference. He raised the bar, in winning and entertainment. Tennessee basketball was forever changed. William B. Stokely’s gift of $500,000 inspired arena expansion and provided the name. So many memories, so many smiles … A photo of Kentucky coach Adolph Rupp was once the dart board in Mears’ private dressing room.

There was a little wooden stepstool so associate coach Stu Aberdeen could see in the mirror to shave. Orange chairs were in perfect lines in the players’ meeting room. The captain had a white chair. Everything was in its appointed place in Big Orange Country. A.W. Davis was the Rutledge Rifle. Howard Bayne was chairman of the boards. Danny Schultz was the great shooter before Jimmy England. Bill Justus was the classic competitor. Ron Widby refused to lose. He once put 50 on LSU. Rodney Woods was a coach on the floor. Mike Edwards could hit from outer spaces. Memories … Tom Boerwinkle was a sensational success story, in part because of Stu’s coaching broom. How about the Volunteer Classic when Temple held the ball and Tennessee won, 11-6? The Orange Tie Club was faithful even in foul weather. Ernie Grunfeld and

Strong enough to bend The descendants of those who oppressed you Shall come bending low to you, and all who despised you shall bow down at your feet; they shall call you the City of the Lord, the Zion of the Holy One of Israel. (Isaiah 60: 14 NRSV) There’s a tree out in the backyard, That never has been broken by the wind. And the reason it’s still standin’ It was strong enough to bend. (recorded by Tanya Tucker, 1988) Sometimes the truth comes at me from the most unexpected places. I have to admit that country music is not my native tongue, but occasionally I am struck by the wisdom im-

parted through its homespun words. I remember when I spent a few days in the hospital while I was in college, and my roommate loved to cry along with her country tunes. I thought

that she was torturing herself, but in actuality, it seemed to make her feel better. In fact, I am irreverent enough about country music to laugh at the old joke: What happens if you play a country song backwards? The guy gets his wife back, his car back and his house back! On a recent dark and rainy night, I heard Tanya Tuck-

Bernard King made the mid-1970s spectacular. Aberdeen did it, luring the allAmericans from New York City. Tenacity? Yes. Cheat? I don’t think so. Unforgettable was the night David Moss marched out as best he could, on his artificial leg, to say goodbye – March 8, 1977. He died three years later. Good times … Globetrotter warm-ups, “Sweet Georgia Brown,” John Pascual wrestling the bear, Roger Peltz juggling three balls while riding a unicycle, happy evenings heckling coaches Dale Brown and Joe B. Hall. “Sit down, Joe, sit down.” Kentucky defeated the Vols five times at Stokely. Tennessee wins included the one over Rupp’s Runts that spoiled a 23-0 season and a 76-57 romp in the championship race of ’67 and the terrific 103-98 victory in ’75 when nobody mentioned that Mears preferred a deliberate pace.

We all know that there are people in this world who are stubborn. I am one of them. A friend said to me recently, “Maybe determined would be a better description of you.” I appreciated her effort to be kind, and I would like to think she is right, but I am not at all sure. When I was a child, we had a Lombardy poplar in the back yard. It was tall and slender and pliable, and in a fierce wind, it would bow nearly to the ground, but it would not break. I also have seen large, sturdy oaks felled by the wind, because they could not bend.

Once upon a time, Tennessee defeated Chattanooga and ETSU in the same evening. Gary Carter picked off an inbounds pass and prevented a humbling loss to American U. Tony White scored 51 on Valentine’s Day 1987. Dale Ellis hit some very long jumpers. Remember the experimental game with 12-feet goals? Don DeVoe made his mark in Stokely. Pat Summitt won more games. Her teams took many giant steps toward national championships. Elvis and others appeared in Stokely concerts. John Tate lost the biggest fight of his boxing life. Louisville defeated Kentucky in a tournament matchup they called the dream game. Pistol Pete Maravich endured frustration in the persona of guard Billy Hann. Charles Barkley, round mound of rebounds, got a pizza delivery he didn’t expect. Bobby Knight waved his arm too frantically and lost his watch. Only the building is going. Memories remain. Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is

So what can we learn from trees and country music? That it is important to be strong enough to bend. But there is more. My favorite movie of all time is “A Man for All Seasons,” the story of Sir Thomas More, who was willing to go to his death rather than compromise his principles. He knew who he was, and where he began and ended, and how far he could bend. He was beheaded by the decree of King Henry VIII on a charge of treason because he would not condone the divorce and remarriage of the king. It is important to be strong enough to bend. It is equally important to be strong enough to refuse to bend when circumstances call for standing tall.

News from SOS While still in a pilot phase, Knox County has moved aggressively from the founding of the first community school at Pond Gap Elementary to the launch of three more community schools last fall. More will open this fall. Government officials, business leaders, and social service agencies are publicly on board with the community school concept which, broadly defined, is the gradual conversion of traditional schools to multiple-use community centers that support children, families and neighborhoods. Community engagement is critical to their success. Taxpayers who have invested in school construction could have access to school buildings as meeting places and benefit from expanded services and training opportunities. City Mayor Madeline Rogero in a recent television interview said, “We do community development and we tend to focus on the bricks and mortar, the affordable housing, energy efficiency and such. In reality, community development is also about strengthening the social fabric, the socioeconomic issues related to families and the children.” Rogero has included $100,000 in the proposed city budget for community schools. A new five-year school plan is being written and community schools are expected to be a major component.

Smith to leave Fountain City UMC By Cindy Taylor After serving 12 years at Fountain City UMC, associate pastor Melissa Smith is ready to take on a new “challenge.” As an ordained elder in the United Methodist Church, Smith is no stranger to a challenge. She has studied at a Baptist seminary, served in inner-city ministries and has piloted contemporary worship and youth programs. Smith will be moving from a congregation of more than 1,000 to become lead pastor at Riverstone UMC. The membership there is just above 50. “Fountain City UMC

took a chance by giving a woman with a Baptist seminary degree a position,” said Smith. “I just knew I was supposed to be at another church but God placed me here.” Smith began at the church in 2001 as youth director and transitioned into a pastoral role six years later. She says leaving is bittersweet. Both the position and the people will be hard to leave. “Things are moving in a great direction here so it is a good time to leave. I have incredibly close friends here who have been with me during some of the highest and lowest points of my life and

I will miss them.” Smith says she will be transitioning to one of the most nontraditional Methodist churches she has heard of. That is exactly what she had been praying for. She hopes to reach those who would not normally step foot in a traditional church. “I am so grateful for the people and the love and support I have received here both in coming and now in going. It has been a wonderful place to be but as a friend recently said to me, ‘You can’t stay in Disneyland forever.’” The church will hold a toast and roast for Smith

The Beebes are back By Cindy Taylor Last June, a family of seven sold their belongings to spend at least two years as missionaries in Ghana. They are back for a sixweek furlough to tell their story at various churches and other ministries. Reid and Robin Beebe and their five boys moved to Ghana with the intention of sharing the gospel while ministering to the needs of the Ghanaian people. “The whole reason we have come home at this time is to witness Mathiang graduate from college,” said Robin. “When I met this young man is when my world grew. This is when I began to understand that the world I was living in wasn’t the world many oth-

ers were living in.” Mathiang Gutnyin was one of the 3,800 Lost Boys of Sudan who were given refuge in the U.S. in 2001 after the second Sudanese Civil War displaced and orphaned them. In Sudan he had one pencil and one composition book for an entire year of school. While in a refugee camp he survived on one cup of sugar, five kilos of corn and a cup of oil every two weeks for 13 years. Mathiang became a son in the hearts of the Beebes in 2001. He was the family’s introduction to Africa and the beginning of a ministry that is now winding its way across more than one country. A year of living in Ghana has brought positive change to the lives of many

of the people the Beebes have encountered, including food and clean water. But the Beebes say they have been changed as well. “The Christians in Ghana are so active and alive in their worship,” said Reid. “So much of how we lived life here in the U.S. seems trivial now. People in Ghana are trusting God and there is nothing else to fall back on.” Many churches across Knoxville have members who are actively supporting the Beebes.

Brookstone Ridge offers homes, building lots near Norris Lake The lack of demand for new homes during the past five years has been a serious deterrent to new home starts and new subdivisions. While homebuyers are now entering the marketplace to take advantage of low interest rates, they are discovering a limited choice of new homes and building lots. One new home community, Brookstone Ridge, has more than 30 building sites, all with water, sewer and underground electric, ready for construction. Located on Norris Freeway, just south of Mountain Road and only a short drive north of Halls, this

neighborhood is within minutes of Norris Lake and the 2,300acre Norris Watershed, with its hiking and biking trails. Homes here are close to shopping ar-

eas in Norris, Clinton and Halls and just a short 30-minute drive to downtown Knoxville via I-75. For anyone working in Oak Ridge, the commute is rela-

tively easy and uncongested. Lynn Leach, owner of Double L Construction, LLC, and one of the developers of Brookstone, says that he has seen an increase in buyer interest in Brookstone’s lots and homes. He notes that a number of new prospects are being referred by current residents who express satisfaction with the family atmosphere and peace and quiet of the neighborhood. “Since there is only one access in and out of the subdivision, our owners see Brookstone as a very safe, secure community,” said Leach.

With more than 70 homes already occupied, Brookstone, with its well-maintained lawns and professionally-landscaped entrance, looks like a stable and growing community. Loy Johnson of Loy Johnson Real Estate, the sales and marketing firm for Brookstone, noted that the prices for new homes will range from the mid-$150’s to just a little above $200,000. Building lots are also available.

Garden Party nets $12K Losing a Fountain City icon Fountain City Art Center benefits The weather held to light sprinkles and sunny interludes for Fountain City Art Center’s ninth annual Garden Party, held at Ginger and Bill Baxter’s estate atop Black Oak Ridge.

Libby Morgan

The new iris bed bloomed on cue for the party with huge colorful blooms, and the dianthus (“pinks”) were full-out gorgeous, carpeting borders all through the gardens with bright pink. The “full tent” event had fine art surrounding the crowd with items for auction and decorated tables. The Alice in Wonderlandthemed table, created by art center board member Sue Lane and her daughter Cheri Compton, was voted best by the partygoers. Place settings included small bottles of champagne and parcels of candy with tags saying “Eat Me,” “Open Me,” “Take Me” or “Drink Me,” with polka dots, checks and ric rac in a color scheme of red, black and white, and Alice in Wonderland props such as mushrooms and teacups. Art center vice president Ken Clayton decorated two tables in honor of his aunt, a member of the Order of Fifinella, female pilots in action during WWII. He displayed her leather helmet and official documents along with dishes depicting WWII-era airplanes. After lunch, Clayton and

wife and two daughters, Pauline, 10, and Evelyn, 5, to a house on Park Street (now Magnolia Avenue), which was then near the Coca-Cola plant. By 1914, the family had relocated to Fountain City, where Evelyn would live in the same house for almost 90 years. When Joyce Sterling encouraged Evelyn to collect and publish her recollections of growing up in Fountain City, Kirby’s book, “Early Fountain City Memories,” became a part of Fountain City history. It was published by Fountain City United Methodist Church in 2000 and chronicles her early school days, her teen years and her marriage to W.A. “Buddie” Kirby. She started school in Fountain City Grammar School, which was then located on the first floor of the Odd Fellows Hall on Hotel Avenue in easy walking distance of the Goddard home. Evelyn’s vivid memories of her teacher and schoolmates are recorded there and provide a rare look into that era. Her recollection of most of the families living on Campus Lane, Gresham Road, Hotel Avenue and Broadway, with the children’s names and often with their later career choices, adds an important chapter to our

Sylvia Williams, art center director, tallies up auction purchases at the end of the event, which garnered over $12,000 for operating expenses of the Fountain City Art Center.

Charles Williams led the live auction where attendees hotly competed for items. The art center benefited to the tune of more than $12,000, according to art center director Sylvia Williams. “The weather surprised

us and cooperated beautifully,” she said. The Baxters’ gardens were absolutely exquisite. Since last year’s garden party, they’ve added new features like the iris garden, and the elaborate bamboo fencing and gate to the lotus pond area.

When Evelyn Goddard Kirby passed away, Fountain City lost another icon. She was a noted local writer, genealogist and historian. Evelyn was born in Johnson City, Tenn., on Dec. 30, 1907, the daug hter of Harvey O. and Dama G odda rd. The reason her parents Evelyn Kirby were living in Johnson City was historic in and of itself. Her father was a partner with J. Patrick Roddy in the early days of Coca-Cola. The Coca-Cola Bottling Works of Johnson City was incorporated on Feb. 6, 1906, but some evidence indicates that it was actually established in 1905. It was a branch of the Roddy Manufacturing Company in Knoxville, which was granted the franchise for northeast Tennessee in 1902. They originally received bottled Coca-Cola shipped by rail until they were able to open the branch plant with H. O. Goddard as the manager. By about 1912, H.O. had been transferred back to Knoxville and moved his

local history. As a 1925 graduate of Central High School, Evelyn was a classmate and friend to many of the older families, the Gentrys, Harringtons, Shetterlys, Bondurants and many others. One fellow student, Roy Acuff, would later become important in her life when B. Ray Kirby (Bashful Brother Oswald), a longtime member of Acuff’s band, the Smoky Mountain Boys, and himself a legend in country music, became her brother-in-law. Buddie Kirby (19041983), owner of a Fountain City barber shop, raised bird dogs and participated in field trials over the state, and he and Evelyn made many friends through that hobby. Evelyn Goddard Kirby was the oldest member of Fountain City United Methodist Church, a longtime patron of the East Tennessee Historical Society and a member of the First Families of Tennessee through her Webb-McNutt ancestry. She is survived by several cousins, nieces and nephews. With her burial in the Anderson-Gouffon Cemetery on Tazewell Pike, another chapter of Fountain City history comes to an end. She will be missed.

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers

Knoxville Zoo fosters learning By Wendy Smith As the Knoxville Zoo’s outreach and outdoor science coordinator, Steve McGaffin has carted furry, scaly and feathery friends all over East Tennessee in the Zoomobile. But for the past two years, McGaffin has been attracting another sort of friend – the six-legged kind. Last year, the zoo was awarded a grant from Dow Chemical for the installation of pollination gardens at Green, West View, Beaumont and Dogwood elementary schools. This year, a grant from the East Tennessee Foundation funded a fifth garden at Sarah Moore Greene Elementary School. The Pollinator Garden Project allows students to see an entire ecosystem within a 250-square-foot area, McGaffin says. Native flowering plants, like bee balm, blackeyed susans and purple coneflowers attract herbivores, omnivores and parasites, and birds come to feast on the crawling and buzzing insects. All of those critters do valuable work. The bees, flies and beetles will help pollinate Sarah Moore Greene Elementary’s Jeffersonian Gardens, three raised beds that were recently planted with peas, Thomas Jefferson’s favorite food. Assistant principal Tanna Nicely, who planted raised beds at Dogwood Elementary before coming to Sarah Moore Greene last year, spearheaded the project. The heirloom garden is one of the reasons five Sarah Moore Greene students were chosen to travel to Washington, D.C., in April to help plant Michelle Obama’s kitchen garden. The students will return to the White House at the end of May. The pollinator garden will also provide opportunities for students to become citizen scientists. For example, students might collect data on the lifecycle of butterfly weed, says McGaffin. After documenting when the plant emerges, forms leaves, flowers, produces seeds and dries up, students can submit the information to the National Phrenology Network, which will use the data to study climate change. “By studying these changes, students understand what’s happening with the climate.” An additional benefit of studying a garden is simply being outside. Studies have shown that getting kids outdoors helps them focus better in the classroom, he says. Plus, it’s good, messy fun. Last spring, after they had been kept indoors for several days due to a

downtown mulch fire, students were in the process of planting flowers in a pollinator garden when the teacher announced it was time for recess. About half of them elected to keep working in the garden, McGaffin says. “They don’t consider this work,” laughs Nicely. Education is what the Knoxville Zoo is all about, says the zoo’s public relations director, Tina Rolen. “It’s disguised as fun, but the goal is to help students connect with the animals so they will help with conservation and understand their part in saving some of these creatures.” One of the biggest ways the zoo helps students is through the Zoofund for Kids. The fund allows students to visit the zoo for half-price on field trips, and Title I-eligible students visit for free. In 2012, the Knoxville Zoo offered reduced or free admission to more

The great egg drop

Ben Skatzes used foam tubing to protect his egg from breaking.

Kinley Whittington created a container using a milk jug and accents to make her project resemble a chicken.

Anderson signs with King University Each year, students at Halls Elementary participate in the egg drop project, at which a raw egg is packaged creatively and dropped from high above the ground. The experiment encourages students to think outside the box. Brinkley Galyon uses an umbrella to slow the descent of her egg to the ground.

Halls High senior Nick Anderson signed to play baseball at King University (formerly King College) next season. Anderson missed his entire junior year for the Red Devils due to illness but came back strong his senior year. “He had a good year,” said coach Doug Polston. “He played every inning and hit well.” Anderson will play infield at King and plans to study physical therapy. Attending the signing were his parents Dan and Janie Anderson, Polston and mentor Chad Thompson.

Coworkers and friends gathered to share memories and send her off to retirement with a smile. Said Donna Reynolds, “Miller was always gracious, always a leader and a great listener. (She) will enjoy retirement!” Teacher David McMahon has known Miller since he was five years old. “She was like a second mom to me. To work with her was a blessing and I will miss seeing her every day.” Miller taught at Adrian Burnett for 18 of her 23-year career. She plans to spend time with her family and travel.

No damper on the Dimes By Cindy Taylor

HPUD sets evening meeting Hallsdale Powell Utility District commissioners will meet Thursday, June 20, at 6 p.m. at the office on Cunningham Road. This is the second evening meeting, and customers who are monitoring the district hope for a large attendance. Bonnie Holloway asked Shopper News to heavily publicize the meeting. “I’ve learned more than I thought possible by attending these meetings,” she said. Holloway is so committed to getting information about the utility district out to consumers that she printed flyers and stuffed them into paper boxes before the last evening meeting. The commissioners met last Monday in regular session. CEO Darren Cardwell reported 26 meters and 17 sewer hookups came online in April. The district treated 218.4 million gallons of water and 304.1 million gallons of wastewater. Randall French, who lives on Rifle Range Road, asked for credits during the summer when customers are watering gardens. “You try to save money one way (by growing food) and spend it another (by higher sewer bills).” French said KUB gives credits and he believes HPUD should as well. We checked with KUB and learned that their program has two rules: 1. Residential customers must have received service since the previous Oct. 1 at the same address.

Kmart has always been a large contributor to the March of Dimes. Employees at the Halls location hosted a car wash and lunch May 11 to promote the cause. “We have been doing something every week,” said Barbara Kidwell. “Employees have funded a lot of Sandra what we are selling today.” Clark While the weather put a damper on the car wash, volunteers were in high spirits selling hot dogs, popcorn and other goodies. 2.

Kindergarten graduation at Temple On May 13, Temple Baptist Academy hosted the 2013 kindergarten graduation program and ceremony. The program is a yearly highlight for students, teachers and parents. This year’s program featured students demonstrating their mastery of academic and Bible subjects, serenading the audience with their favorite songs, and displaying the diversity of their personalities. They truly were a “cast of characters” that not only stole the show, but also stole the hearts of those who watched. The students put on the play “Little Bo Peep,” which creatively incorporated characters from a variety of children’s stories, poems and rhymes, including Humpty Dumpty, Little Boy Blue, Jack and Jill, and Peter Peter Pumpkin-eater, among others. Kindergarten teacher Paulette

Temple Academy kindergartner Laynee Farris portrays Little Bo Peep in the kindergarten graduation play. Deeringer matched each role to the colorful personalities of the students.

After the play concluded, Dr. Clarence Sexton, pastor of Temple Baptist Church, spoke to the audience. He emphasized the opportunity that families and teachers alike have to influence the next generation by giving students an academic and spiritual foundation. Sexton congratulated each graduate as they received their kindergarten diplomas. Family and friends came from near and far to see the many rehearsed and not-so-rehearsed moments at the annual program. The students began preparing for their special endof-year event in January. Deeringer, a veteran teacher, directs the kindergarten program at Temple Baptist Academy. Deeringer has been teaching for more than 30 years, 21 of which have been at Temple. “Mrs. Deeringer is fa-

mous here. A large number of our students, including high school students, have had Mrs. Deeringer as a teacher,” said Temple Academy principal David Whitaker. Reflecting on the year, Deeringer said, “What a wonderful time we’ve had this year, working hard, learning, growing, laughing and enjoying each other. We have made some sweet friendships. I always learn as I teach. God always blesses hard work, and these students have worked hard and have been blessed and are a blessing to me. They performed their special parts in such a way as to bring delight to all who watched. ” Several of the Temple High School seniors graduating this year had Deeringer as their kindergarten teacher. All of them, without exception, have said that she made

Happiness is a fit puppy Summer’s coming, and pet owners are looking forward to getting outside with their furry friends. It’s a good time to assess your pet’s general health and fitness level.

Carol Zinavage

Carol’s Critter Corner Dr. Marti Drum, assistant professor at the UT vet school and an expert in pet fitness, offers some guidelines to help you determine whether your animal companion might need a little shapeup. View your pet from above. You should see a curved indentation just behind the rib cage. A straight line from head to tail could mean that your pet is overweight. If his middle is wider than his shoulders and hips, he’s probably obese. View your pet from the side. There should be a nice “tuck” behind the rib

cage, before the hind legs. A straight line or sag in the belly area likely means your pet is overweight or obese. Cats are especially prone to belly fat. Gently run your fingers along your pet’s rib cage. The ribs should be felt easily with very little pressure. Check for extra padding and folds at the base of the tail. Except in some rare breeds like Shar-Pei, an extra roll of skin in that area indicates obesity. If you’re feeding your pet table scraps, reconsider. Dr. Drum says, “Table scraps are very calorically dense. A visibly small

amount of food to a person is a large amount for a pet. One ounce of cheese eaten by a 20-pound dog is equivalent to two and a half hamburgers eaten by a person. A cup of milk for a cat equals five Hershey bars for a human.” Scraps can cause vomiting and diarrhea, and may contain potentially toxic ingredients not recognized by the average pet owner. So as much as you want to indulge the little beggar at your feet, resist the urge and stick to food and treats made just for pets. Pets are built for daily exercise.

your dog, that dog needs activity during the week. Just a 10- to 30-minute walk twice a day will help condition your pal for weekend activities. And you benefit, too! A fenced yard doesn’t automatically guarantee exercise for your pet; napping in the springtime sun is too tempting. Get out there and throw the ball! And taking your dog with you to the mailbox or out in the yard while you’re weeding are easy ways to build in exercise. As with humans, the consequences of pet obesity are dire. Arthritis, ACL tears and other orthopedic problems, diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, chronic skin infections – overweight pets are susceptible to all of these. And those vet bills add up. So do your pet, yourself and your pocketbook a favor – shape up and be happier and healthier for summer!

Stephanie Doyal and Hannah Crawford have teamed up to help the Corryton community. Through the Girl Scouts, the duo is working toward earning the Gold Award, the Girl Scouts’ highest award. Their projects, though separate, provide fresh vegetables through the Rutherford United Methodist food pantry. Doyal’s project is called “Glorious Gardening” and the initial stages include planting, weeding and general care of the garden, which is located on the Rutherford United Methodist Church grounds. Several community members helped plant green beans, tomatoes, cucumbers, and squash, and Doyal will help maintain the garden and monitor its growth. Crawford’s project is called “Hometown Harvest” and will deal with the harvesting and distribution of the fresh produce. Community members will have an opportunity to have ownership in the project as they assist in the process of maintaining and harvesting the vegetables. The pair is thankful for the Union County High School agriculture department, Holden Nursery and community donations to help make the project a success. Long after Hannah Crawford helps put plants in the ground as part of her the girls receive their Girl Scout Gold Awards, the fruits of Girl Scout Gold Award project. their labor will continue to grow.

Auditable courses By Sara Barrett For folks age 60 and older, going back to school can often be a daunting task. But the University of Tennessee and Pellissippi State Community College offer opportunities to attend classes free of charge as long as there is room. At Pellissippi State, auditing a course allows the student to do everything paying students do except earn credit toward a degree. There is no tuition or additional fees for campus access or the student recreation center. UT offers a reduced course fee of $7 per graduate and undergraduate credit hour to a maximum of $75. Both colleges offer online courses as well, but attending a class or enrichment program

in person allows the participant to be active in the community and meet new people. For more information on UT’s courses, visit www.utk. edu or visit finance/cashier/waiver.php to look at Pellissippi’s classes. ■

Classes at Strang

In addition to classes at local colleges, the Frank R. Strang Senior Center has several educational opportunities for adults age 50 and over, including classes on Spanish, watercolor, advanced cardio and Tai Chi.
