School board will ‘buy local’ By Scott Frith The Knox County Board of Education is picking a new superintendent, and some are surprised that both finalists are from East Tennessee. Don’t be. Political trends swing like a penduScott Frith lum. When looking for new leadership, folks often go in the opposite direction. Not convinced? The best local example may be in the county mayor’s office. Remember those feuds between Dwight Kessel and Victor Ashe? By 1994, voters grew tired of the bickering and elected Tommy Schumpert on the promise of peace. For the most part, Schumpert succeeded. Yet, as he finished a second term, some viewed his “getting along” and calm demeanor as not aggressive enough in promoting economic development. They looked to then-County Commissioner Mike Ragsdale, who possessed enough charisma and sound bites to fill the entire City County Building. Ragsdale was elected in 2002 and re-elected in 2006. But then, voters elected Tim Burchett, who couldn’t be more different. Think Lexus sedan vs. beat-up Jeep Cherokee; tailored suits vs. a brown Carhartt jacket. You get the idea. The same pattern emerges with the superintendent of schools. State law changed in 1992 to require school board appointment of superintendents. In 1999, our board picked Charles Q. Lindsay, a Mississippi native best remembered for relocating principals and getting directly involved in the messy politics of school board campaigns. Lindsay left in 2007. The next year, the board hired Jim McIntyre, an education technocrat, whose roots in Boston (and lack of political skill) couldn’t have been more different from Lindsay’s southern drawl and political brawling. McIntyre left last year. And now the school board appears to be buying local. Finalists are Bob Thomas (assistant superintendent since 1990) and Dale Lynch (superintendent of Hamblen County Schools since 2001). Thomas is the favorite to win. Do not be surprised. Both are the opposite of McIntyre. Scott Frith is a local attorney. You can visit his website at pleadthefrith.com

Celebrating the centennial in style By Ruth White
When Halls throws a party, it throws a party. It’s not every day, after all, you turn 100. Halls Elementary and Halls Middle schools held a centennial gala Feb. 25 at The Foundry. It is part of an ongoing seHenderson ries of centennial events this school year. “Turning 100, that’s a unique thing for the school,” Halls Elementary principal Dr. Chris Henderson said. “We wanted to celMaland ebrate it.” Halls School (now divided into elementary, middle and high schools) opened during the 1916-17 school year. An estimated 100 attended. Former teachOliver ers, students and principals chatted throughout the room. Halls native and local radio personality Kim Hansard was the master of ceremonies. “It turned out better than anyWormsley one had hoped. Kim did a marvelous job, and we
Heather Cardwell chats with Rhonda Vineyard at the Halls centennial gala, held by and for Halls Elementary and Halls Middle schools, at The Foundry on Feb. 25. Cardwell was on the Halls Elementary PTO committee that organized the gala. Vineyard is a Halls native and a longtime booster of Halls Elementary, as well as the gala’s Gold Sponsor. Photos by Ruth White heard a lot of good stories and positive feedback,” Henderson said. Elementary PTO members Heather Cardwell, Gina Hodges, Holly Sewell, Amanda Van De Griff and Lori Wroblewski helped coordinate the event.
Halls Middle School assistant principal Jay Wormsley said fellow assistant principal Joy Sherrod coordinated the middle school’s part of the gala with its PTA. Wormsley was chatting with former Halls Middle principal Doug Oliver near the entrance be-

Will rezoning bring resegregation? By Betty Bean While some worry that the proposed middle school rezoning plan will undo years of desegregation efforts and land Knox County Schools in federal court, the two players most likely to be on opposite sides of the courtroom look at the issue from very different perspectives, but do not seem overly concerned about that possibility – for now. “This (plan) is a good first step, as far as it goes,” said NAACP president John Butler, who filed a civil rights complaint with the U.S. Department of Education’s Office for Civil Rights after the agreement to build a new Gibbs Middle School was unveiled.
Quality personal training sessions.
Knox County Law Director Bud Armstrong said desegregation was not the primary purpose of the 1991 rezoning plan that closed schools and bused inner city kids to distant parts of the county. He cited a 1991 opinion by U.S. District Court Judge Leon Jordan that found no evidence of intentional discrimination by Knox County Schools. Jordan said the only question the court could ask was “whether the motivation in adopting the plan was invidious discrimination on the basis of race, and the Court finds that there was not.” Armstrong said: “They did not close Gibbs and move them to Holston Middle School because

Knox County has built new schools in recent years only in predominantly white communities. “Now that you are zoning (minority students) back in, we need to Armstrong have facilities and staffs looked at and steps taken to eliminate inequity,” said Butler. He wants new, state-of-the-art middle and high schools staffed with faculties who understand the needs of minority students. He will not withdraw the complaint, even after Buzz Thomas, interim superintendent, asked him to do so.

those schools were segregated. Conversely, if they reopen Gibbs, it won’t be to resegregate those schools.” Whether intended or not, the rezoning will result in some schools having a higher percentage of African-Americans while others have lower. To paraphrase former school board chair Sam Anderson: We can be sure black kids are treated fairly when they are sitting next to a white kid and both are treated the same. That’s what the U.S. Supreme Court decided in 1954 (Brown vs. The Board of Education): “separate educational facilities are inherently unequal.” Are we entering the post-Brown era?

Tennova Health & Fitness Center’s Elite Kids program: good for parents, great for kids By Carol Z. Shane In this age of video games and must-see TV, children need fun, enjoyable options for keeping their bodies fit and their motor skills sharp. Fortunately, Tennova Health & Fitness has more good things for kids than Nintendo has explosions. Kids whose parents are Tennova members can enjoy a wide array of fun, silly, strenuous, exciting, watery, stretchy, laugh-outloud activities that will keep them hopping and happy for the entire length of mom and dad’s workouts. And the best news is – it’s all included with adult membership. Known for its family-friendly atmosphere, Tennova Health & Fitness Center has always welcomed the youngsters, but with its restructured Elite Kids setup, “It’s not just kids coming in here playing games, watching TV and coloring – now, for the whole
up-to-two-hours they’re here, they’re active,” says Kelly Novarro, Elite Kids Coordinator, herself the mother of one. “We offer a class schedule for the kids just like we do for the adults.” Those activities run the gamut from obstacle courses to “Simon Says” to climbing the rock wall to swim lessons and much, much more. The age range for Elite Kids is 3 (must be potty-trained) to 12. And there’s a bonus, says Casey Fitzpatrick, Programs Representative: “The kids enjoy it so much that they ask to come back. So the parents are more consistent because the kids are asking to come to the program!” See? Everybody wins. Why not check out the variety of options available to your kids at Tennova Health & Fitness Center? Swim lessons and birthday parties are also available to nonmembers.
What if your birthday’s in the winter and you want a pool party? Tennova Health & Fitness Center’s got you covered – literally. Take your pick of a two- or three-hour party with fun in the party room, on the rock wall and in the indoor pool. You provide the food and cake; you can even order pizzas to be delivered! Kids’ parties at Tennova Health & Fitness Center are scheduled separately, and are not part of the Elite Kids package. They’re hugely popular. “I’ve got four this weekend,” says Casey Fitzpatrick, Programs Representative.
Kids have a ball not only running the obstacle courses, but setting them up. This tyke has arrived early to make sure all his favorite activities are included.
Group fitness activities for kids at Tennova include Bootcamp, Yoga, Field Day and Minute to Win It, where kids engage in silly fun that gets them exercising whether they realize it or not.
Your kids can conquer Everest – or whatever their imaginations cook up – safely at Tennova Health & Fitness Center. With a trained staff always present to help belay your young mountain climber on the rock wall, you can do your own workout with peace of mind at no extra charge.
With both group and individual options, kids’ swimming lessons are a great way for youngsters to get wet, have fun and gain strength and ability at the same time. Infants as young as 6 months can learn those oh-so-important water skills. At least two adults are always present, and classes are kept small – both for individual attention and safety.
Got little ones? No sweat! Got kids under 3? How about a fitness class for parents that provides child care at the same time? Tennova Health & Fitness Center offers a Parent/Tot class on Wednesdays and Fridays. It’s the best of both worlds.

Antwon Harris works with Lion Dick McMillan.
Chili sellout for Lions By Sandra Clark
The Fountain City Lions Club had so many folks eating dinner at the annual chili supper that members had to dash to Food City for additional meat and chips. Lions Club president Dick McMillan presided over the kitchen, assisted by football players from Central High School. J.D. Lambert, assistant principal and athletic director, said the players gave 1,929 hours of community service last year. He’s not calculated the service this year, but the room was full of Bobcats busing tables. Freshman Carter Graven was one who stopped to examine County Commissioner Michele Carringer’s T-shirt.

Bible study with the beasts at Christ UMC By Shannon Carey Christ United Methodist’s Wednesday night children’s program is going to the dogs. And cats. And horses. And even hamsters! It’s all an effort to make Bible study come alive for elementary school-age kids, said Christ United Methodist children’s director Sarah Beth Day. She found a pre-made Bible study curriculum involving pets and “took it to the next level by bringing the pets into the environment while we’re talking about it.” “It’s added a great deal of excitement, and they’re paying better attention,” Day said. Day is no stranger to the teaching power of pets. Her family raises golden retriever dogs, and she is getting one of her dogs certified as a therapy dog with the HABIT program. “Our pets are like a lifeline in crisis or grief,” she
said. “They offer comfort, understanding and unconditional love.” The series started just after Christmas break with small pets like goldfish, turtles, hamsters and guinea pigs. Cats were the headliners Feb. 22. After a hiatus March 1 for Ash Wednesday, the program will be back with a vengeance with parrots March 8, dogs March 15, and horses March 22. On Wednesday, March 29, the kids get to bring their own pets to be the stars of the show with a pet parade that Day says “will be like a blessing of the animals but a lot sillier.” But the lessons themselves aren’t silly, even though they’re delivered in a fun way. “The overall theme is ‘Growing Closer to God,’ and learning through your animals’ personalities how to grow closer to God,” said Day. “For example, the parrot is a mimic, and we want
new families every week.” She also thanked the pastoral staff at Christ United Methodist for their support of the program. “I said, ‘Hey, I’ve got this crazy idea and I want to bring real animals in,’ and they didn’t fire me immediately,” she said. “We have really cool pastors, and that makes what I do awesome.” After the Pet Parade March 29, the Christ United Methodist children’s program will start a series on the foundations of faith in the weeks preceding Easter. On Palm Sunday, the church will host a free communitywide Easter egg hunt immediately following the SunCricket the cat and owner Maggie Meyers visit with students in the Christ United Methodist day service.

A new home for Old North Abbey By Carol Z. Shane “Let’s see,” says the Rev. Aaron Wright of Old North Abbey, “there was the house behind Fourth Presby terian. Then there was F o u r t h Aaron Wright P r e s b y t e rian. Then there were other houses, then we were above the KARM store, then we were at First Presbyterian.” Wright ticks off all the locations that Old North Abbey, part of the Anglican Church in North America, has in-
habited in its seven years in Knoxville. Those days of wandering are over, however, with the congregation’s arrival this month at their permanent home on Fairmont Boulevard, where they held their first service on Feb. 19. “We don’t know what we’re going to do with all this space!” says Wright. “We’ve always been pretty nomadic.” Already in the closeto -10,0 0 0 - s qu a r e -fe e t building there are brightly painted, neatly planned children’s rooms. The sanctuary has been stripped of carpet and the window shutters are gone, flooding the room with light. Wright
points out some changes that will occur in the altar area; steps and partitions will be removed in order to create a more open space with better flow for formal observances throughout the liturgical year. He’s thrilled to be able at last to create a space for the ritual-filled Anglican services from which he and his parishioners derive great comfort and strength in their beliefs. “There’s a discipline and a rhythm that gives us the freedom to live into our faith,” he says. “We follow the story of Jesus. We practice communion and feet-washing; it allows people to step into
MAKE YOUR MARK Giving Back, 20,000 Hours of Community Service for 20th Anniversary
Jesus’ world for a little bit. And I think to participate in that story is good for us as humans – it’s a story that’s bigger than us.” Wright grew up in Knoxville and attended Karns High School but then left for seminary in Indiana. He met his wife, Brenna, when he was pastoring a church in Kansas and returned to
Knoxville in 2010 as a cofounder of the church he now serves. The Wrights have two children – Phoebe, 4, and Shepherd, 1. When Old North bought the building last November, it also inherited three upright pianos, a full kitchen and hundreds of coat hooks. “Sometimes we think just coats came to church here,”

Copper Ridge Elementary staff member Sheryl Andrews was named the school’s Teacher of the Year. Photo by Ruth White
Andrews honored at Copper Ridge By Ruth White Meeting Copper Ridge Elementary fourth-grade teacher Sheryl Andrews for the first time, it was easy to understand why her coworkers voted her as the Teacher of the Year. Her bubbly personality overflows and she has a smile that is big enough to share with others. Andrews wasn’t always a teacher. She went to school to study banking and finance (and minor in economics) in her first life. She worked in outside sales for a while but her love for working with young children grew stronger each time she subbed in a classroom or read books in her son’s class. “I truly enjoyed working with kids and love the idea that I can positively impact a child’s learning.” She enjoys working with fourth-graders because they have some independence and maturity but they

The marble king
Cotton had once been king and the railroads had dominated for a time but, by the late 1880s, another industry had assumed a major role in East Tennessee’s economy. Knoxville became a leader in the marble industry, and the industry was so big that Knoxville became known as Marble City. Although the first extensive developments were in Hawkins County, shipments from Knoxville via the East Tennessee, Virginia and Georgia Railroad were three times as great by 1881. There were 11 quarries operating in Knox County by 1882, and 300 workers were employed. By 1906, it was estimated that the county’s marble industry generated $1 million annually. The pioneer marble company in East Tennessee was in Rogersville (Hawkins County). Founded in 1838 by S.D. Mitchell and Orville Rice and operating as the Rogersville Marble Co., its quarry provided marble for interior furnishings such as floors, doors and mantelpieces. By 1850, its water-powered finishing machinery was used to produce monuments and tombstones. In 1873, William Patrick founded the Knoxville Marble Co. near the Forks of the River and became its president, with George W. Ross as secretary-treasurer. Ross’s son, John M. Ross, succeeded Patrick in 1886 but eventually sold to the
W.H. Evans Co. Perhaps the most interesting of all the companies was established in 1878 by John J. Craig (1820-1892). Over the years it eventually morphed into John J. Craig Co. and its subsidiary Candoro Marble Works, where the marble was finished and artists such as the Italianborn sculptor Albert Milani (1892–1977) created elegant monuments. The patriarch of the family was succeeded in the business by his son John J. Craig Jr. (1860-1904) and then by his grandson John J. Craig III (1885-1944). With quarries near Friendsville and Concord, as well as in South Knoxville, the company became the foremost producer of pink Tennessee marble by the early 1900s. Born in Lauderdale County, Ala., on Sept. 20, 1820, John James Craig came to Knoxville in 1839. He married Mary C. Lyon, whose home was on what became Lyons View Pike. Craig began his career as cashier of the Union Bank and, in 1858, began construction of an impressive mansion on 11 acres that now are a part of the Uni-

versity of Tennessee campus. He called it Lucknow, but it eventually became Melrose. The house was almost completed when the Civil War broke out, and Craig sold out and moved to Cincinnati. The family, including the three children who grew to maturity, W.L., John J. Jr. and Mary, returned to Knoxville in 1869. Many more generations of John J. Craigs have continued to make the company a strong presence in the industry for over 125 years. John J. Craig IV and John J. Craig V continued until recent times to serve as officers in the business. In 1926, John J. Craig III, like his grandfather, built an elegant mansion. His was called Craiglen and was located on Westland Drive, featuring Tennessee marble throughout. It has been called the most elaborate and beautifully detailed of all the Barberdesigned homes. Patterned after a palazzo in Florence,
Italy, it has two wings connected by a loggia with six sets of Palladian doors. Several terraces provide views of two acres of gardens and woodlands with exedra, ponds and herb gardens. The marble columns, walls, ceilings and floors provide a museum-like example of the beauty of Tennessee marble. Locally, the Craigs provided marble for the U.S. Post Office on Main, the State Office Building on Cumberland, the Criminal Court Building on Gay and interior marble for some of UT’s buildings. Several Washington, D.C., buildings were also constructed with marble from the Craig quarries: Smithsonian Museum of History and Technology, AFL-CIO Headquarters, Australian Chancery and, most notably, some of the stone for the National Gallery of Art, at one time the largest marble building in the world. (Dr. Tumblin’s latest book, Fountain City: Those Who Made a Difference, is available at Page’s Fountain City Pharmacy, Pratt’s Country Store, Long’s Pharmacy, the East Tennessee History Center, Union Avenue Books and online

Rock of Ages
East Tennessee’s Marble Industry Through May 14, 2017 East Tennessee marble is prized the world over. There are only two months left to visit the exhibit that describes the industry that launched the stone’s fame and crowned Knoxville as the Marble City! The marble industry was once an important sector of East Tennessee’s economy. Beginning in the mid-1800s, demand for East Tennessee marble increased, it being sourced for the interiors and exteriors of homes, businesses and government buildings in Tennessee and across the country. Occurring in a vein in what is called the Holston Formation, Tennessee marble is actually a type of crystalline limestone. It resembles marble when polished, and architects and builders cherish its pinkishgray color. It also occurs in gray, dark burgundy (“cedar”) and some variegated shades. Visit the exhibit at the East Tennessee Historical Society Museum at 601 S. Gay St. (across from the Tennessee Theatre). M-F: 9 a.m. - 4 p.m. • Sat: 10 a.m. - 4 p.m. • Sun: 1 p.m. - 5 p.m., 865-215-8830. Exhibit closes Sunday, May 14, 2017.

Last November he had the opportunity to participate in the NAfME (National Association for Music Education) All-National Honor Ensemble in Grapevine, Texas. The event was by audition only for students who had previously participated in their respective All-State band clinics.

Spencer flew to New York City and participated in Macy’s 90th Thanksgiving Day Parade as a member of the Great American Marching Band. He was selected after submitting an audition application and video. Although preparation for the event required many hours of practice, the group was able to tour NYC, see a Broadway show and tour the 9/11 memorial. Early this year, Spencer auditioned for a chair in the All-East band and was selected as first chair in the Blue Band on tenor sax, which earned him a spot in the All-State band as well. The All-East band members recently attended a workshop and performed a concert in Gatlinburg.

Camp dismantled in Halls By Ruth White Lt. Jim Wright and a crew of workers from the Knox County Sheriff’s Office have cleaned up a camp in Halls suspected to be used by one or more homeless individuals. County Commissioner Charles Busler was contacted by a community member who had seen a vagrant coming from the woods behind Walgreens. Busler did a little investigating and found what appeared to be a camp set up behind the store. He never saw anyone
there, but the area was littered with beer cans. Wright, who was recently put in charge of the North Precinct, investigated and then organized a workday to clean trash from behind the Walgreens and inside the wooded area between it and Ace Hardware. Wright said during the workday that when officers come across homeless individuals, they provide information on obtaining assistance and services through the Community Action Committee (CAC).

Books for eight schools By Tom King Public school libraries in Knox County and elsewhere are given very small budgets to replenish their collections and buy Tom King new books. Knowing that, the North Knox Rotary Club, Rotarian Larry May and Wordsworth Classics joined to give $4,000 worth of books to eight schools in the North Knoxville area. The elementary school libraries that received $500 in new books include Fountain City, Halls, Inskip, Sterchi, Belle Morris and Shannondale as well as Gresham Middle and Halls Middle. Each school added approximately 100 books to its collection. May, a Rotarian for 25 years, owns L.B. May & Associates, which he began in 1991 as a wholesale book company. Today, he is the sole distributor in the U.S., Canada and Mexico for the very popular British-owned Wordsworth Classics children’s books. He distributes more 250,000 of these books annually. “I was principal for a day at Halls Elementary and I asked how I could help and they said they needed books for the library,” he said. “That’s easy. I can do this. I knew for a little bit of money we could get a lot of children’s classics for the
libraries.” Attention other Rotary clubs: May said he would be delighted if the other Rotary clubs in K nox v ille would adopt schools Larry May and that he could provide the books for $1.50 per book. May, who was president of the North Knox club in 2001-02, also served as president of what was then West Knox Rotary (now Bearden Rotary) in 1990-91. May also owns Mayco, which sells and distributes calendars to the bargain industry, and Freight Management System, a full-service logistics company that provides transportation for skidded weight, truckload, intermodal and international shipments. ■■ May 6: Time for

Mixed results in February By Sherry Witt On the heels of a redhot start to 2017, local real estate and lending markets cooled off a bit in February. For the month that Witt ended Feb. 28, there were 774 property transfers recorded in Knox County. While that number bested both January and last February’s totals, there was a substantial decrease in the value of properties sold. The aggregate value of land transferred during the month was $155.6 million, which was about $73 million less than January’s total, and nearly $25 million behind the pace set during February 2016. With only 19 business days on the calendar, February suffered from a lack of sizeable commercial transactions. Coming in the middle of winter, February is traditionally the

slowest month of the year for real estate activity. Increases in federal rates had an effect on mortgage lending, as only about $221.9 million was borrowed against real estate in Knox County, compared to almost $280 million in February of last year. Last month’s total also fell well short of the $314 million loaned in January. The largest real estate sale recorded in February involved multiple lots in the Hardin Valley community in a development known as Hayden Hill subdivision. The properties sold for $4.24 million. The largest mortgage loan of record was a construction Deed of Trust in the amount of $7 million filed on real estate in a commercial development off Merchants Road on Merchants Center Boulevard. It remains to be seen whether February’s activity will be a trend or just a brief aberration in what has been a stellar 12-18 months for the local markets.

Tennessee track stuck in reverse Speaking of athletics directors, did you spot Dave Hart at the bus stop, waiting for Tennessee’s one-man track team to come home from the Southeastern Conference indoor championships? It is understandable if the departing director was busy elsewhere. His reconstruction plan for the once famous Volunteer program isn’t going very well. But for Christian Coleman, it wouldn’t be going at all. The junior sprinter scored 18.25 points, about the same as all other UT track and field athletes, men and women, combined. Coleman, relay reserve at the Rio Olympics, won the SEC 60, was second in the 200 and ran a leg on an eighth-place relay team. Others boosted the scoring total to 23.5 points, bad enough for 10th place, far, far behind real track teams. Tennessee women were worse. They scored 13.5 points and finished 12th. Hart’s choice to rebuild the track program, Beth Alford-Sullivan, is in her third year as director. Her results are much like her predecessor’s, the honorable J.J. Clark. He got fired – after his people recruited Coleman.
Coleman was virtually hidden at Our Lady of Mercy, a small Catholic school on Evander Holyfield Highway outside Fayetteville, Ga. At 5-9 and 159, he considered himself a very fast defensive back and wide receiver with an invitation to continue football at 1-AA Valparaiso University. Life-changing events occurred in the spring of his senior year. In the Georgia Olympics, he set records in the 100 and 200, won the long jump and anchored Mercy to a gold medal in the 4x100 relay. He ran fifth in the 100 and 11th in the 200 at the New Balance Nationals and was suddenly sought as a big-time track talent. “My life could be a lot different,” said Coleman. He realizes he could be grinding away in spring football practice where the game doesn’t matter all that much. “I thought track was a
good opportunity for me. I took a leap of faith, and this is where God wanted me to be.” Why Coleman chose Tennessee remains a mystery. There is one clue. In 2007, at age 11, he won an AAU national title in the boys’ long jump – at Tom Black Track. Things were some better back then. The Vols notched another SEC title. There has been a dropoff and it is still dropping. The recent SEC meet represented an uncomfortable decline from last year – which wasn’t very good. These Vols scored about half as many points as the 2015 joint effort. Tennessee cross-country results fit the pattern. Last October, male distance runners were a distant ninth in the SEC meet, 250 points behind champion Arkansas. UT women finished 14th (last). Coach Alford-Sullivan still sounds optimistic. She talks about how young is her team. She emphasizes improvement and personal bests, even when they are far behind scoring minimums. Beth isn’t getting a lot of help from the athletics department. Poorly managed restoration of Tom Black Track ran past the deadline and the facility was inoper-
able last outdoor season. The school doesn’t have an indoor track. It does have track history. Several coaches were responsible. Chuck Rohe put track in the headlines and won an astonishing 15 consecutive SEC titles. Stan Huntsman built on that. Back in the era of dual meets, he led the Vols to a 93-26-3 record, 20 SEC titles and Tennessee’s first NCAA championship. Ex-Vol Doug Brown lasted long enough to go 53-8 and win four SEC titles and another NCAA crown. Bill Webb did rather well – 521, four SEC and two NCAA titles. Terry Crawford and Clark were big winners with the women. Clark got promoted with the merger. You don’t really want to know what happened after that. Right now, the Vols do not have a competitive track team. They have one of the finest sprinters in the world and others in similar colors who don’t accomplish all that much when it is time to run, jump or throw. Coach and athletes remain hopeful. Maybe the new AD will fix it. Marvin West invites reader reactions. His address is firstname.lastname@example.org
Currie selected on split vote Newly designated University of Tennessee Athletic Director John Currie was not the unanimous choice of the six-member search committee, this writer has learned from sources who declined to be named. Peyton Manning and t r u ste e Charlie Anderson voted for former coach Phil Fulmer, while Currie was John Currie the choice of the remaining four members. None are talking on the record. The hire was a strong surprise. Manning did attend the Currie news conference Thursday in a show of unity. Interestingly, Chancellor Beverly Davenport, who was not a committee member, participated in some of the closed interviews, which increased the number of women involved from one to two – but still there were no African-Americans. Davenport, who nominally named the committee, announced the list before she even arrived in Knoxville to become chancellor. She also flew to Kansas to interview Currie after interviewing Fulmer and perhaps others. It is felt Davenport want-
ed someone who had spent a significant part of their career outside Tennessee. Currie meets that standard. When Currie last lived in Knoxville, he lived on Hillvale Turn and his family attended Sequoyah Hills Presbyterian Church. They were active in the community, but the majority of his life has been removed from Knoxville. If Currie, who will become 46 on April 1, restores the Lady Vols name after his April arrival, it will go a long way to winning over people who have misgivings over this surprise choice. However, the people who in reality picked him may not allow him to do this. It remains to be seen whether he will have the freedom Dave Hart has had to do whatever he wanted as athletic director. The search was trusteedriven and owned. Davenport was the conduit by which it all occurred, but her main role was to approve the choice from her employers (trustees). It will be interesting to see how
she handles the search for a new provost and communications vice chancellor. ■■ Meanwhile, the state Senate Education Committee has added $450,000 for an “intellectual diversity office,” which UT President Joe DiPietro is less than happy about. He had no clue it was coming. Davenport needs to start getting to know local lawmakers so she can be a player. Unfortunately, UT’s credibility is weak among lawmakers in Nashville, and Davenport has not been prompt in responding to inquiries. ■■ Karl Dean, former Nashville mayor, has announced as a Democratic candidate for governor next year. If elected, he would be the third consecutive mayor to become governor, following Phil Bredesen of Nashville and Bill Haslam. Interestingly, Dean declined to criticize Haslam and called him a “very good governor.” This contrasts with several GOP candidates seeking to replace Haslam who oppose Haslam’s gas tax proposal, helped to defeat his Insure Tennessee proposal or separated themselves from Haslam’s disavowal of Donald Trump in the recent presidential campaign. It also contrasts with the state Democratic Party chair, who often criticizes
Haslam. Dean is already running a general election campaign (but he may face state Rep. Craig Fitzhugh in the primary). Appealing to Haslam Republicans, who may not be happy with the eventual GOP nominee, may be a bright strategy. The current GOP candidate most closely identified with Haslam is Knoxville’s Randy Boyd, former Economic and Community Development commissioner, who filed his campaign papers on Monday. ■■ Kelsey Finch, former city director, is considering a race for city council to replace former mayor and council member Daniel Brown, who is term limited. ■■ State Rep. Rick Staples turns 47 on March 12, and former Gov. Don Sundquist turns 81 on March 15. ■■ Doug Harris, former school board chair, and his wife, Carla, are back after 3½ months circling the world and visiting over 24 countries. They especially liked Bolivia, Peru and Chile. They were in Wellington, New Zealand, on the 10th floor of a building during a 7.8 earthquake, which was a challenging experience. They felt New Zealand was one of the most beautiful countries in the world.
last words Sickness or sin?
Neighbors battle over mental health facility Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett and Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones want to divert nonviolent, misdemeanor offenders with mental health issues to a 24-bed urgent care center for psychiatric treatment rather than take them to jail. Burchett has patched together a funding package through partnerships with Helen Ross McNabb Center, the state and the city of Knoxville. Officials, starting with then-Atty. Gen. Randy Nichols, have worked eight years on this, and now it’s at risk of blowing apart. A crucial use-on-review vote comes before MPC on Thursday. I’ve written more on this for the Karns edition, which you can read online, but last week’s public meet-
Sandra Clark ing was mind-bending. After a mother told of her son’s adult-onset schizophrenia, a man stood to say, “It’s not a ‘sick’ problem, it’s a ‘sin’ problem.” He said offenders should go to jail and added that we’re just becoming too soft. It’s probably the first time Tim Burchett has been called “soft.” Neighbors have legitimate concerns about the location of such a facility, but surely no one in 2017 can question the need and the moral imperative for it. Let’s build this center.
John Butler to run for City Council Knoxville NAACP president Dr. John A. Butler will be a candidate for City Council in this year’s elections. Butler is presiding elder of the Knoxville District, AME Zion Church, and pastor of Clinton Chapel AME Zion Church in Mechanicsville. He will contend for the district seat now held by Daniel Brown, one of five termlimited incumbents who will step aside in December. John Butler In 2015, Butler filed a civil rights complaint with the U.S. Department of Education against Knox County Schools demanding better facilities and more representative faculties in inner city schools. “I am offering myself to serve as the advocate for District 6,” said Butler. “I want to advocate for District 6 and for other parts of the city.” Butler, who served on the Asheboro, N.C., school board before coming to Knoxville with his wife, Donna, and their three children in 2007, was a captain in the U.S. Army National Guard/Army Reserve and holds three earned degrees. He chairs the FAITH Coalition (which aims to reduce HIV and AIDS) and volunteers with Knoxville Save Our Sons Advisory Committee, Beck Cultural Exchange Center, Great Schools Part-
Betty Bean nership, KCS Disparities in Educational Outcomes steering committee, Knoxville Smarter Cities Partnership and TVA stakeholder group “Energy EfficiencyInformation Exchange.” He is the past president of the Knoxville Interdenominational Christian Ministerial Alliance (KICMA) and served seven years as a member of the Knoxville Police Advisory and Review Committee (PARC). If elected, Butler said his goal will be to boost community engagement, economic development and small business development with the aim of growing living-wage jobs. He will have the enthusiastic support of former county commissioner Diane Jordan, who said she is excited that Butler plans to run. “He’s our hero,” she said. “Nobody took us seriously until he filed that complaint, and we would have lost Vine Middle School if he hadn’t done it. He has earned our support and I’m going to do everything I can to help him get elected.” Butler will join a crowded field of candidates in the Aug. 29 primary, which will be decided by Sixth District voters only. The top two vote getters in each district will run citywide in the Nov. 8 General Election.

News From Fort saNders regioNal medical ceNter
Surviving spring allergies While the sunshine is refreshing, one thing that the spring season brings is not welcomed. Allergies are perhaps one of the most underdiagnosed problems in America today, and in East Tennessee in particular. When looking at yearly published lists of the worst allergy cities in the United States, many cities in East Tennessee are at the top of the list. Even though allergies in our area are common, appropriate diagnosis and treatment of them is no easy task. It is important to identify what is causing an allergic reaction to develop effective allergy management. In many cases, patients are not receiving the best treatment. “There are many people who have been tested and treated with shot therapy for 10 to 15 years who are still suffering from symptoms,” says Fort Sanders Regional ear,
nose and throat physician Mark Gurley. He assures that using different types of testing results in forming the best treatment plan for allergy sufferers.

SPRING SPRING ALLERGIES! ALLERGIES! 10 Tips to Help You Combat Sniffles this Season
hot cycle to wash your bedding and, if you are severely allergic, buy special allergen-proof pillows, mattresses and box springs that have tight fabric weaves to keep out dust mites.
Wash towels and linens in hot water.
Use the air conditioner when you’re in a car. Riding with the windows down lets allergens blow into the vehicle.
Don’t smoke, and insist that smokers in your household smoke outside the house and car. If you or someone you know wants to quit smoking, visit covenanthealth.com/stopsmoking
Consider designating certain rooms in your house as “pet-free” areas where you can breathe easily.
Buy throw rugs even if you have carpeted rooms. Throw rugs will help the carpet stay allergen free.
Minimize clutter in order to minimize the dust in your house.
Buy a dehumidifier. Dust mites don’t do well in humidity below 45 percent.
Mark your calendars for the 2017 Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon events – and lace up your running shoes! The races are set for Saturday, April 1 (5K race and the popular Covenant Kids Run) and Sunday, April 2 (half-marathon, two- and fourperson relays and full marathon). The Covenant Health Knoxville Marathon has grown to become the largest competitive road race in East Tennessee. As in previous years, all races will have an exciting finish on the 50-yard line inside Neyland Stadium. For many, it is the thrill of seeing themselves on the JumboTron as they cross the finish line that
inspires them to participate in the events. But the best reward may be what runners gain by the entire experience. Proceeds from the marathon benefit the Knoxville Track Club’s youth athletic program and Covenant’s Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center Innovative Recreation Cooperative (IRC), which encourages people with disabilities to pursue leisure and sports activities. To learn more or to register, go to www.knoxvillemarathon .com. Covenant Health employees may get 50 percent off the registration fee by using the entry code COVENANT2017.

Wokie and Stephen Wicks. Stephen is curator at Knoxville Museum of Art.
For the love of wine and art By Sherri Gardner Howell DeLena Feliciano, who is with KMA Visitor Services, and her friend and volunteer Leslie Chang Jantz helped pass out souvenir wine glasses to the guests.
KMA Guild members Wendy Ellis and Sandi Burdick were on hand to greet guests.
L’Amour du Vin Wine Auction and Dinner finished a fundraising week for the Knoxville Museum of Art in style. The annual event has grown tremendously since five friends – Lee and Susan Hyde, Pete and Jan Peter and Carolyn Browning – pulled together a wine dinner and auction in 2000. The signature dinner is now preceded earlier in the week with a Sponsor Dinner and Artists Luncheon at Blackberry Farm. For many Knoxvillians, L’Amour du Vin goes on calendars first. Quick conversations Saturday night, however, also found several first-time attendees. With enthusiasm already running high – and the dinner bell not yet sounded – there is little doubt they will look with anticipation to next year.
Randy and Melissa Burleson of the Aubrey’s family of restaurants were chairs of the 2017 L’Amour du Vin. Longtime supporter Blackberry Farm and Lexus of Knoxville were back to make the evening special. Experts from Napa Valley wineries were on hand to guide patrons through the wines at dinner and to make considerable donations to the auctions. Several Knoxvillians had much more impressive wine cellars at evening’s end. KMA executive director David Butler has special memories of L’Amour du Vin. This was the 12th time he attended the event. “The weekend I came to Knoxville to interview at KMA for the first time was the weekend of L’Amour du Vin,” said Butler. What a great introduction to Knoxville’s art community!
