Richard Pickens gets a surprise I’ll say this in a soft voice: There isn’t enough happiness in Richard Pickens’ life. The Ol’ Vol has an assortment of problems. Some, estrangement from family, for example, he brought on himself. Some descended on him like a dark cloud.

McMillan alleges violations at school construction site By Sandra Clark Shannondale farmer James McMillan has documented stormwater violations at the Shannondale School construction site, and he’s asking officials to correct them. Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre said he is reviewing McMillan’s concerns with contractors and “will take appropriate action.” Mayor Madeline Rogero said she would ask staff to review his complaints and respond. Knox County Schools is adding 22 classrooms and renovating the school. Designed by McCarty Holsaple McCarty, the $2.6 million project has K and F Construction as its contractor. McMillan said the project violates “decades-old laws” while setting a “horrible example” for children. He’s asking Rogero and state water-quality inspectors to enforce appropriate regulations.

Open House March . Enrollment specials all day.


This view shows raw land by the construction road at the Shannondale School construction site. Specific complaints include: ■ Sediment from the site tracked a half-mile away ■ Bare areas not stabilized below the construction road (violates the city’s 15-day stabilization rule, McMillan says) ■ Silt fence not installed correctly, joints not rolled and wrapped together to form solid barrier ■ Silt fence installed without a

toe behind it (flat area to let muddy water pool up allowing time for sediment to settle out) ■ Silt fence not installed level with the slope, allowing stormwater to flow in concentrated flow across silt fence and overwhelm and undercut it at the lowest point ■ No repair of silt fence where it was undercut, allowing untreated and non-filtered stormwater to escape under it ■ Not maintaining construction entrance to prevent sediment being tracked off-site on public roads McMillan says each offense is serious and leaves the school system open to fines per day, per offense as high as $5,000 from the city or county, $10,000 from the Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation and over $30,000 from the EPA.

He asked Rogero why the city’s stormwater department had not found and corrected these problems long ago. He suggested that instead of fines, the school system arrange field trips to the site to show students proper ways to manage stormwater so that “something good and positive could come out of this.” On Friday, Brent Johnson, the city’s engineering planning chief, chastised McMillan for not reporting the potential violations sooner. “Based on your email, it appeared that you knew about this condition for at least a month before contacting us,” he wrote. “If you would have contacted us then, we could have begun the process of correcting this issue much earlier.” Johnson also said Knox County is not required to get city permits for construction projects.

He met with some of Fountain City’s finest, including Gib Galyon and Ben Easterday, and talked football. Rosser is fulfilling his contract at Hackensack High School and will be in Knoxville for good on April 1. “This is a wonderful chance for me and definitely a blessing,” Rosser told the group. “I can’t stay away, and I’m ready to be here full time.” Rosser’s CORE values on and off the field include character, optimism and opportunity, resilience and enthusiasm. He is a multisport athlete and proudly wears a state-championship ring from his first coaching job. He knows how to motivate and encourage his players. “I believe in doing small things to make big things happen.” He also understands the

Field of dreams

Softball season kicks off this week, and Halls High has a lot of which to be proud. If you haven’t stopped by the softball field lately, renovations are under way to take this former baseball field to a top-notch softball facility. Once this second phase is complete, the team will have new dugouts, a three-foot brick wall with netting at the backstop and a great facility. Ground was broken on the new dugouts and backstop in January, and coach Kevin Julian said the work should be done by the first home game against Campbell County on Tuesday, March 25. “The parents have worked hard to get donations and make this project happen,” said Julian, whose mother was a softball coach at the school for one year

The team won the district last season and will be led by a solid senior class. Senior members include four-year starter at second base Katie Scott; pitcher Lexi Helm, who won 27 ballgames last year; centerfielder Samantha Warwick; catcher Kelsey Whited; and Alyssa Mabe on first base.

Each started every game last season. Rounding out the senior class is Vada Major in right field. Julian called her “a great team player.” Thanks to donations of money, materials and services, the project will become a reality. If anyone can help make the team’s dreams come true, they can contact Julian at the school, 922-7757. ■

ACS helps hold on to hope

I had the privilege of photographing a sweet friend last week before she goes to have a double mastectomy. The photos were shot downtown in an alley filled with graffiti for an edgy look. I wanted to portray her strength and courage through her battle with breast cancer and show that she hasn’t let the disease get the best of her. With that said, I wanted to shed a little light on a

resource for breast-cancer survivors. Sue Spicer, the physicians’ liaison for the American Cancer Society, let me know about a wonderful resource for women. Located inside Tennova North is an office area filled with resources on nutrition, chemotherapy, every different type of cancer and how to talk with your doctor. The brochures are available to individuals, and being a patient at Tennova is not a requirement. ACS also offers a program called “Look Good, Feel Better” that meets the first Monday of the month from 10 a.m. to 11:30 a.m. The program is a makeover for a woman’s spirit and helps women with cancer. Women can register for the program at 1-800-2272345. Information equals hope. Stop by Tennova North’s cancer center to gather more information on cancer and know that there is hope.

government Catching up with Chris Woodhull Former City Council member Chris Woodhull has moved to the Chattanooga area, where he lives in Lookout Mountain, Ga., although he maintains his domicile here in Knoxville.

Victor Ashe

Over coffee recently, Woodhull, 54, told this writer that he continues to host “Improvisations” on Friday nights for WUOT; he started doing it before he left council in December 2011. “I grew up with jazz,” he says. He comes to Knoxville weekly to tape the show on the UT campus. He also does consulting work with Richmont Graduate University, which has sites in both Atlanta and Chattanooga. He is the director of Build Me a World, which can be found at and is in a partnership with Fancy Rhino productions. He’s glad he served on City Council as an at-large member for eight years but calls his performance “underwhelming.” “I could have been better prepared for the life of a politician. Meetings often seemed artificial.” He described colleagues Mark Brown and Bob Becker as “good friends.” He said he would not have run for a third term even if the City Charter had permitted it, but after eight years on council he thinks the mayor should be allowed to seek a third term because it is difficult to accomplish much in only eight years. Woodhull said he was “glad to have been the deciding vote in choosing Knoxville’s first AfricanAmerican mayor (Daniel Brown).” The other four were Marilyn Roddy, Daniel Brown, Becker and Joe Bailey. Each was the deciding vote on a 5-4 vote on a

nine-member council. ■ The “Ed and Bob Show,” which used to be on WNOX, may appear on Knox County Commission starting Sept. 1 if Bob Thomas and Ed Brantley are elected to the commission’s two at-large seats. Brantley is opposed by Michelle Carringer, and Thomas is unopposed. Brantley says he and Thomas did not always agree on the “Ed and Bob Show.” Thomas is seen as a person (one of several) who may run for county mayor in 2018 when Tim Burchett’s second and final term ends. ■ The contest between Ed Shouse and Craig Leuthold for the GOP nomination for county trustee will be hard fought. It revives memories of Black Wednesday, when County Commission disgraced itself with backroom deals naming each other and family members to various county positions. Leuthold named his father, Frank, to his own seat. He also voted to install Fred Sisk as county trustee. Sisk then turned around a few weeks later and increased Leuthold’s salary by 44 percent (according to NS editor Jack McElroy’s column), making it an expensive thank-you for county taxpayers. ■ Events in Ukraine change daily, and the ultimate outcome is uncertain. Having lived in Poland from 2004 to 2009, I had a front-row seat observing how Ukraine freed itself from the former Soviet Union and moved haltingly toward democracy and economic vitality. The Putin-inspired occupation of Crimea is another major setback to Ukraine. Poland, rightfully, remains deeply concerned about developments there and wonders how steadfast the United States will be over the long term in restoring Ukraine’s territorial integrity.

Barnes Barbershop is Duncan family tradition By Sara Barrett When Rep. John J. Duncan Jr. stepped off a plane in Knoxville from Washington, D.C., he went straight to Barnes Barbershop in East Knoxville for important business. His grandson, Zane Jr., was getting his first haircut. “You can solve the problems of this country better here than in Congress,” said Duncan of the barbershop on Martin Luther King Jr. Avenue. He took off his suit jacket before settling down in the barber chair with Zane Jr. on his lap. “The tradition of Barnes Barbershop has been go-

ing on for a long time in our family,” said Duncan. A young Jimmy Duncan was taken there by his dad, the late John Duncan Sr., in the late 1940s for his first haircut. He became a regular and took his son Zane there for his first trim. Barnes opened in the 1920s and is still operated by the same family. Barber Debbie Barnes kept the shop’s basket of lollipops handy as she snipped the split ends from Zane Jr.’s mane. The haircut lasted about seven minutes and his mom, Hallie, saved some locks in an envelope as a souvenir.

Will money buy love? Fourth District incumbent Lynne Fugate is one of schools superintendent James McIntyre’s strongest allies. She is in her second year as school board chair and is seeking to be elected to a second term.

Betty Bean Fugate is sitting pretty, money-wise, reporting a balance-on-hand of nearly $18,000 at the end of the last reporting period, on Jan. 31. Her list of financial supporters is long and impressive, studded with the names of some of Knoxville’s most powerful citizens. She raised much of her war chest at a January fundraiser at the home of Ann Haslam Bailey, including a $1,000 contribution from James Haslam II, also a strong McIntyre supporter. This is not a staggering

sum by national standards but is enormous compared with opponents Sally Absher and Jeffrey Scott Clark, who were exempt from filing detailed financial disclosures because they received and spent less than $1,000. Fugate is local market executive for SmartBank and served as executive director of Nine Counties, One Vision, a regional planning initiative launched in January 2000. Her two sons attended West High School, and she has served as president of the West High School Foundation. When teachers showed up to air their complaints about McIntyre’s methods at the January County Commission meeting, clad in red for solidarity, Fugate chose a seat between McIntyre and his chief of staff, Russ Oaks. She did not wear red. Clark is a first-time candidate and a political unknown – at least to this reporter. He has not returned phone calls, and there is

little information to be gleaned about him online. His wife is his campaign treasurer and several people who signed his qualifying petition share his last name. Absher was an early member of the Tea Party but says she is no longer involved with that group. She was elected to the Republican State Executive Committee in 2010 and is not seeking re-election. She is critical of Common Core State Standards and says she would not have voted to extend McIntyre’s contract. She has a degree in geology and is a technical writer. Her husband, Steve, teaches chemistry at Halls High School, and she has been a regular at school board meetings in recent months, wearing red and sitting with the teachers, many of whom strongly support her candidacy. Her Facebook campaign page describes her as “… an issues-oriented individual

Tradin’ Claude’s remarkable life

Lynnhurst-Resthaven Cemetery was established in 1922, but Col. Claude S. Reeder (left) became president in 1929 and expanded it.

HISTORY AND MYSTERIES | Dr. Jim Tumblin He earned a law degree, played a large role in building the framework for the Tennessee Valley Fair, might have helped found the Great Smoky Mountains National Park and became a local household name selling cars, once taking a cow as partial payment for a Studebaker. Meet Claude S. Reeder, who was born on July 14, 1886, in Knoxville, the son of Columbus Alexander and Adelia Hodges Reeder. Columbus Reeder was a prominent Knox County farmer and held several political offices in the county, including sheriff from 1876 to ’80. Claude graduated from old Girls High School, the predecessor of Knoxville High School, and enrolled at UT, where he played halfback on the football team and also lettered in basketball and track. He received his bachelor’s degree in electrical engineering in 1908 and promptly enrolled in the College of Law. Although he never practiced, he felt the knowledge enhanced his skills in business. On June 10, 1909, Claude married Ella McKee Durham (1886-1982). They had four children: Claude S. Jr., John Alexander, Richard Durham and Betty McKee (Houston). Col. Reeder first worked as a clerk in the Knox County Tax Assessor’s office but

later resigned to found the Cherokee Motor Co., the local seller of Studebakers. He earned his nickname “Tradin’ Claude” when he advertised, “We trade for anything but a rattlesnake.” His photograph with the cow taken as partial payment made the local papers and was picked up by the national NEA news service. A promoter of the Appalachian Exposition in 1910 – the forerunner of the Tennessee Valley Agricultural and Industrial Fair – Reeder remained interested in the fair throughout his life. There were many good years and some very lean ones, but eventually that fair became the “father” of the Tennessee Valley Fair. An apocryphal story, to which many lend credence, credits Reeder for influencing Gov. Austin Peay to take an interest in efforts to establish the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. As the two sat on the porch of Reeder’s summer home in Kinzel Springs, Claude said, “Governor, these mountains would make the finest scenic park in the world. Why don’t you ask the legislature to acquire the land?” Coincidence or not, in 1925 the legislature enacted the Little River Lumber Co. Purchase Act, one of the first moves toward establishing the park.

Late in life, Reeder calculated that he had served on 47 corporate boards over the years including: chair of Reeder Chevrolet Co.; chair of Cherokee Oil Co., which he founded in 1928; director of White Star Bus Lines; chair of several Seven-Up bottling companies (Washington, D.C., Rochester, N.Y., Richmond, Va., and Winston-Salem, Asheville and Charlotte, N.C.); president of Morris Plan Bank; president of the East Tennessee Fair Association; and president of LynnhurstResthaven Cemetery Co. Lynnhurst Cemetery had been established in 1922, when its first president, James Lyle Humphrey (1870-1925), bought the initial acreage west of First Creek near Greenway. Soon, the property north of Adair Drive was purchased from the Sanders estate, heirs to a portion of the original Adair land grant. Later, with Claude Reeder as president, the corporation bought the old mill property near the cemetery entrance from O.W. Sweat. Reeder presided over the corporation from 1929 until 1938, when he was succeeded by W.B. Hatcher. Reeder also owned Park Amusement Company, which operated rides and concessions at Chilhowee Park. His real-estate holdings included several U.S.

Post Office buildings, which he leased to the government. In addition, he served in many civic and fraternal organizations: the Knoxville Kiwanis Club, Elks Lodge (life member), the Masons (32nd Degree), Kerbela Temple, Chamber of Commerce (director), the Wonderland Park Club and Cherokee Country Club. He and Ella were also active at Church Street Methodist Church. He loved the outdoors and particularly enjoyed hunting and fishing with his friend W.R. Kennerly. They often went to South Dakota for pheasant and to Canada for moose and deer hunting and muskellunge fishing. In addition to the summer home in Kinzel Springs, where the community considered him the honorary mayor, the Reeders later enjoyed a winter home in Fort Myers, Fla. When Norris Dam was built and the lake impounded,

Reeder built a lodge on the lakeshore, where his personal friend, Army Gen. Mark Clark, was a guest. But, most of all, he enjoyed his old family home place, 316 W. Hill Ave., currently the site of the City County Building. The picture window in his den overlooked the Tennessee River (Fort Loudoun Lake). A mounted buffalo head hung over the great stone fireplace, while other trophies of pheasant, elk, Rocky Mountain sheep and game fish were hung around the room. Col. Reeder suffered a fatal heart attack while attending a reception in honor of Sen. Herbert S. “Hub” Walters in Morristown on Oct. 17, 1964. Knoxville Mayor John Duncan had asked him to read a procla-

mation and present the keys to the city of Knoxville to Walters. After services at Mann’s Mortuary, he was interred in the Reeder Mausoleum in Lynnhurst Cemetery.

Pickens is a Vol for life I’ll say this in a soft voice: There isn’t enough happiness in Richard Pickens’ life. The Ol’ Vol has an assortment of problems. Some, estrangement from family, for example, he brought on himself. Some descended on him like a dark cloud. Since retiring as a railroad executive, he’s been in the fourth quarter for what seems like a long time. It could be he is in overtime. He has supposedly been diagnosed with “amyotrophic lateral sclerosis and secondary frontal temporal dementia with pseudobulbar palsy.” Since my medical expertise is in bruises and abrasions, this is out of my pay grade. Some old teammates are convinced the affliction goes back to too many hits with the helmet, too many concussions treated with smelling salts. Pickens was a Tennessee fullback in 1966-68, part battering ram, part bowling ball, leading rusher in the Southeastern Conference as

Marvin West

a senior, 736 tough yards, then the most by a Vol since Hank Lauricella in 1951. Going back to Young High School, Pick was never a tiptoe runner. He was nimble and quick but did not rely on fancy moves. He butted people who got in his way, broke many tackles and probably created some running lanes with intimidation. Pickens still “plays” football with his wonderful collection of friends who (occasionally) stop by his home at Clarity Pointe in Farragut. Sometimes they just talk about big plays, magic moments, precious memories that need to be refreshed. Sometimes they watch old games on Vol Network DVDs. Sometimes they and Richard

go places, to lunch or to see things, and talk some more, going and coming. Mike Miller, Mike Marchant, Larry Brown, Randy Webb, Van Fillingim, Sam Venable and Bobby Waggoner have been part of this support system. Dick Williams, Charlie Rosenfelder and Dewey Warren are in the informal group. There may be a dozen others. Jim McDonald, a teammate at Young High and UT, is a mainstay. He manages Pickens’ pensions and financial matters. McDonald and Pickens go back to the beginning. Their competition to see which was best probably made both better. That their relationship has lasted so long provides a peek into something called “Vol for Life.” That smart term was created as a recruiting tool to help convince prep prospects that Tennessee players are all in this together, once a Vol always a Vol, forever and ever, amen.

Photo by Sara Barrett Several fans embrace the idea. Alas, their lasting commitments sometimes fluctuate, depending on Saturday scores. With former players, it tends to be real. Ol’ Vols hang in there. There is a genuine bond. Former tackle Jerry Holloway has a mailing list of hundreds who share the ups and downs, fishing tales, obituaries, anniversaries, accomplishments by children and grandchildren, news of knee replacements, and other hard-earned aches and pains.

They remain bound together by fellowship, loyalty and the color orange. Pickens was the focal point of such love last week. Distinguished artist Alexander Dumas initiated it. As the story goes, Pickens commissioned a painting 15 or 20 years ago of a favorite play. When he came to claim the finished product, it wouldn’t fit inside his Volkswagen. “Later” was somehow forgotten and Dumas filed his handiwork in a stack of other treasures. He found it

in time for the current art exhibition at Clarity Pointe. Of course it was a delightful surprise for Pickens. Ol’ Vols and several others shared in the celebration. A fun time was had by all. Blessings on the good man Dumas, an unexpected ray of sunshine in Richard Pickens’ life. Full disclosure: Alexander Dumas once gave me a print of his very best snow leopard. I thought it was Smithsonian quality. Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is

Feeling God’s spirit at Fairview By Ruth White Fairview Baptist Church is experiencing growth that has created a need for two Sunday morning and two Sunday evening worship services. Member Heather Haley eagerly shared her passion for the church; she believes that the growth is directly related to senior pastor Bryan Wright and his teaching from the Word of God. She also believes that each worship experience is led by the spirit of God. “Once you walk into our sanctuary, you can feel God’s spirit,� she said. “Lives are being changed. Adding services is a good problem to face.� The church offers many

When giving hurts By Wendy Smith Bob Lupton was enjoying his first Christmas as a resident of inner-city Atlanta when he witnessed something that changed his ministry. When members of a suburban church brought Christmas presents to a poor, urban family, the kids were ecstatic, the mom was embarrassed, and the dad vanished out the back door. The charitable gift exposed the dad’s inability to provide, he said. After that Christmas, Lupton examined the ministry’s charity programs and noticed a pattern. If someone received something once, they were appreciative. If they received it twice, there was some anticipation. When they received it a third time, it created expectation, and

after the fourth time, it created entitlement. If someone received something five times, the result was pure dependence. That, he says, is toxic charity. From then on, he adopted the position that charity is helpful only in a crisis situation. After the crisis has passed, it’s time to rebuild. Hunger, he said, is not a crisis. “In 42 years of living in the city, I’ve never seen a starving person. I’ve seen food insecurity, but not starvation.� Lupton’s response to the chronic needs of his neighbors was to build healthy relationships, something that isn’t accomplished through one-way giving. He began to see both the needs and the resources in his neighborhood, and utilize the resources. Nobody is so poor

they don’t have something to contribute, he said. Even the homebound elderly can serve as the neighborhood watch. His golden rule is “Never do for others when they have the capacity to do for themselves.� The ministry’s programs evolved into neighbor-run organizations that meet needs and empower. A free clothing closet became a business when customers were required to purchase items. The new business provides employment, and customers feel appreciated rather than demeaned. A food pantry became a food co-op when neighbors pooled resources to have more purchasing power at a local food bank. The arrangement led to a weekly potluck lunch where neighbors show off their cooking skills.

Sewing ministry at Wallace Memorial By Cindy Taylor The women’s ministry at Wallace Memorial Baptist Church holds a quarterly sewing event to support local, regional and world missions. The group “Fabric Quarters� has sewn clothes for an orphanage in Haiti, cut patterns for shoes through the organization Sole Hope, and made items for Angelic Ministries. Members also stuff stockings with goodies at Christmas for local centers such as Western Heights Baptist Center. Their most recent get-together was to create items to benefit single moms.

“We know that single moms are a large and growing population, and they are in need of so much support,� said volunteer Heather Testerman. “The bags are just a small gift of love for these moms.� The group sewed small bags and purses and stuffed them with pampering items donated by the women at Wallace. “Our mission is to pray continually, serve, connect and grow with those in our community and around the world,� said Testerman. Volunteers included Katrina Reiling, Jordan and Stacey Evans and Bethany Summers.

Christmas has changed, too. Generous church members still purchase items, but the unwrapped gifts are placed in a store where parents can shop for their children at reduced prices. “What kids need more than toys is effective parents,� Lupton said.

A capable wife who can find? She is far more precious than jewels. Strength and dignity are her clothing ‌ Her children rise up and call her happy; her husband too, and he praises her‌ Many women have done excellently, but you surpass them all. Charm is deceitful, and beauty is vain, but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Give her a share in the fruit of her hands, and let her works praise her in the city gates. (Proverbs 31, selected verses) I have always taken a dim view of people who use euphemisms for death: passing away, gone to glory, gone to his reward, etc. I was of the opinion that it was an attempt to avoid the truth, which is bluntly and unavoidably, “She died.â€? I thought people should just say so. When the phone call came, at an hour on a Saturday morning when no one makes a phone call for a friendly chat, I knew what it was. I was already up and getting dressed to go see my mother in the nursing home. We had known for several days that the end of her journey was near. The last time I had seen her, just days before, I knew that it was a matter of weeks, possibly days. I answered the phone and the gentle voice on the other end of the line said, “Lynn, your mother passed this morning.â€? There it was, the euphemism. She “passed.â€? No, I thought, sadly. She died. I called my daughters, both of whom had made travel plans to get here in time. Jordan was on the road already, and Eden had plane tickets for later in the week. In the next few hours, there was much to be done: people to notify, arrangements to set in motion, decisions to make. It wasn’t until we were on the road that it hit me. She passed. How apt for someone who had been a teacher! It is true: she passed. She has graduated into heaven. Do not misunderstand me: I still believe that we are saved by grace and no one of us can earn our way into heaven. But maybe, just maybe, God grades on the curve. As I write this, we are in that short and, at the same

time, interminable limbo between a death and a burial. Nothing else can go forward, no future plans can be made, no other work is so important as the mourning the loss of my mother and my children’s grandmother. Mother was known for her love of red. She wore red well and often, and after she entered the nursing home, exclusively! It was Eden who, about an hour after I notified her of Mother’s death, called me back and said, “I have an idea. I think we should all wear red at the service.� I laughed out loud, in spite of my grief, and said, “What a great idea! Mother would love it!� And so, spurning any sign of mourning – no black allowed – we will send her to eternity, all of us dressed in red. For the past 40 years, a framed motto hung in Mother’s house. It sums up her approach to life perfectly. I have to live with myself, and so I want to be fit for myself to know. I want to be able, as days go by, Always to look myself in the eye. I don’t want to stand in the setting sun And hate myself for things I’ve done. I want to go out with my head erect; I want to deserve my own respect. I feel sure the Lord has already told her, “Well done, thou good and faithful servant. “And, by the way, love the red!�

Kilby gets ABES honor

Adrian Burnett Elementary 5th-grade teacher Eddie Kilby was named Teacher of the Year (an honor s h a r e d with Kelly Fawver). Kilby has been at the Eddie Kilby school for 24 years, having taught one year at Karns High before then-principal Jim Prince brought him to the Halls area. He once stated that he would never teach at the elementary level, but Kilby is thankful to Prince for believing in his abilities. Kilby enjoys working with 5th-grade students because they are old enough to work independently and are learning to branch out. The staff at the school is special to him. “They have always cared about one another through good times and bad,â€? he said. “I consider myself very blessed knowing that if something bad was to happen, my coworkers will be here with support.â€? He considers every staff member at the school as a Teacher of the Year. “There isn’t a teacher here that I wouldn’t let my own children be in their class.â€? Kilby is a Knoxville guy, having attended Pleasant Ridge Elementary, Northwest Middle and West High schools. He attended UT where he received his bachelor’s degree and returned to school in 2006 to earn his master’s in education curriculum and instruction from LMU. When he isn’t busy in the classroom, Kilby loves spending time in the garden, at the mountains or on Norris Lake. â–

business News from Pellissippi State - Magnolia Campus

Fulton grad explores art at PSCC By Heather Beck When most people think theatre masks, the ancient Greek masks of comedy and tragedy come to mind. Alexia Murriel, a student at Pellissippi State Community College’s Magnolia Avenue Campus, recently put her own slant on a final project in a theatre class by creating African-inspired religious masks. A Fulton High School graduate, Murriel is in her fourth semester at Pellissippi State, pursuing a general associate of arts degree. Once finished, she plans to attend a four-year university and earn a bachelor’s degree in mechanical engineering. “Rituals were one of the early forms of theatre,” Murriel said. The masks were modeled after those used in Nigeria and Zimbabwe. For Murriel, her love of art and her career pursuits are drawn from the same well of interest. “I’m very much a handson and experimental person,” she said. “Anything I can make with my hands that’s my own idea is what interests me. “Art was something that found me in elementaryschool art class – I found that I was pretty good at drawing. At first it was just pencil and paper, but now I use mostly acrylic paint on canvas boards. Then, in high school, I found I was

Alexia Murriel really good at math, so I became interested in mechanical engineering.” Murriel is inspired by nature, but also by graffiti, three-dimensional chalk drawings and aerosol art on canvas. “I draw or paint just about anything that’s appealing to the eye.” In addition to attending college, Murriel also has considered joining the U.S. Air Force or Air Force Reserve as well. “I’m still exploring my options. I came to Pellissippi before going to a university to just get a feel for the college life.” The Magnolia Avenue Campus is at 1610 E. Magnolia Ave. Info: www.pstcc. edu/magnolia or 865-3293100.

Property sales steady

Bridging the digital divide in Lonsdale

By Sherry Witt February is traditionally the slowest month of the year for real-estate activity and mortgage lending, and last month was certainly no exception. While property Sherry Witt sales held their own, mortgages were down from both January and last February’s totals. In February, 551 total property sales were processed in Knox County. While that was slightly more than the number of transfers in January, it was well short of the 639 parcels that sold in February of 2013. The aggregate value of land transferred was off about $14 million from last February but was substantially short of the $143 million worth of property sold in January.

The first month of 2014 was some $60 million ahead of last year’s pace. Mortgage lending continued to trend downward. About $158 million was loaned against real estate in Knox County compared with $202 million in January and $278 million in February 2013. The past six months have shown a consistent decrease in overall mortgage lending. The largest land transfer was for residential property on Scenic Drive in the Sequoyah Hills community, which sold for $1.8 million. There were no large sales of commercial property. Topping the list on the lending side was a mortgage securing property off Gleason Drive known as the Raintree apartment complex. The loan was recorded in the amount of $6,289,100. With the cold winter of 2014 mostly behind us, the first day of spring is only a couple of weeks away. As the warmth returns, hopefully it will bring with it good times for the real-estate markets.

Plans call for locating the center in the on-site resident association office. In addition, neighboring steel recycler Gerdau has pledged financial support toward outfitting the center with computers. A team from the current Leadership Knoxville class has adopted the project also. We have consulted with Amy Brace, principal at Lonsdale Elementary, on student needs. We plan to start with students in the younger grades. When kids are not at the technology center, the neighborhood’s senior residents can also increase their computer skills.

Apple tree grafting: There’s an app(le) for that Agriculture teachers at Union County High School – Linda Baxter, John Fugate and Matt McGinnis –sponsored a series of apple tree grafting demonstrations throughout the school day on Feb. 25. Actually, this has been occurring every year for 17 years, but this is the first year the class has been opened up to the community. A lesson in grafting has been on my to-do list for years, but this was my first real opportunity to participate. I joined Rick King, Ike Stooksbury and Ron Hatmaker for our session. The next class was buzzing with students, both boys and girls. I know (Linda) Baxter is a great role model for these girls interested in agriculture. She told me she’s been teaching 24 years, 17 of those years in Union County. Joe McNew, who is now a young 84, has been coming down from his farm, Echo Acres in the Cave Springs Community in Claiborne County, to teach this class. Echo Acres is a fifth generation farm on the South-

Bonnie Peters

erland family line that has come to the McNews through his wife. They have 200 apple trees including 80 varieties including a number of heritage apples. This is what I took away from the grafting lesson: One must have “root stock” from some type of apple tree. McNew had ordered crab apple root stock from Washington State. Until recently he could order these for less than a dollar each, but this year the price exceeded $1, and the shipping has become pretty horrific. When the root stock arrives, place in damp sawdust until grafting day. While the sap is down in December or early January, cut scion wood (water sprouts) from the apple tree variety that you wish to graft. These pieces were cut in about 6-inch lengths and

about 1/4- to 1/2- inch in diameter. Place these pieces in zip lock bags by variety – McIntosh, Winesap, Wolf River, Cheese Apple or whatever and place in the refrigerator. When you are ready to graft, place your hand just above the roots as a measurement for where to cut. Take a sharp knife and cut the rootstock at an angle. Then take a piece of the scion wood with the buds facing upward and cut a matching angle. Slide the two together and tape. McNew uses paraffin film which is self-healing. However, any type tape can be used. Healing takes about two weeks. If these substitute tapes are used, slit the tape after two weeks in order not to choke your new tree. If the roots on the root stock were really long, he trimmed those back to about 4 inches. When choosing a piece of scion wood, make sure it has at least two or three buds. Each student in the class was given a grafted tree to take home and plant. To keep damp until you pot the

Plant in a 6-inch pot until about Easter, then transplant in your yard or orchard. McNew concluded the class by cautioning us not to take our food supply for granted and stressed the importance of pollination. Much has been said and written about the concern

for our bees and the disastrous effects of lack of pollination. McNew stressed our need to preserve our honey bees as well as the little black bee that superseded the honey bee in America. McNew, who is so knowledgeable about growing fruit trees, gave us a couple of other valuable tips: As

an insect repellant, pour 1 cup vinegar and 1 cup sugar into a gallon jug and place a banana peel into the jug as well. Fill with water and hang in your fruit tree. For fire blight, he mixes a five to one solution of Clorox and water and sprays his trees. Again, this opportunity for continuing education is greatly appreciated.

Lighting up the canvas By Libby Morgan “Makin’ Molasses,” an oil painting by Aurora Harrison-Bull, brought home an honorable mention at the Fountain City Art Center’s themed open show, “Illumination.” The show was judged by Ann Birdwell, a former Cen-

tral High School art teacher who now teaches at the John T. O’Connor Senior Center in Knoxville. Art center director Sylvia Williams says, “We had really good participation at this show with 88 entries, and had several new artists submit their work.”

Harrison-Bull’s painting depicts her husband, Earl Bull, and friends skimming molasses at their farm in Hickory Valley. She teaches several weekly classes at her home and at Fountain City Art Center. Info: Fountain City Art Center 865-357-2787.

Brain tumors take many forms, cause differing outlooks There are more than 120 types of brain tumors. A diagnosis of any of them is very specific and individual to the patient. It’s also life-changing, life-threatening and often a shock. “Brain tumors can be insidious,” said Dr. Paul Peterson, a neurosurgeon at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center. “Initially, many people think their symptoms Paul Peterson, MD are a stroke. There can be Neurosurgery headaches, and subtle personality changes can occur even before the headaches occur. “But unlike stroke symptoms, which are sudden, brain tumors can enlarge silently for a long time,” Peterson added. Each year, an estimated 200,000 people are diagnosed in the United States with some type of brain tumor, according to research by the National Cancer Institute. Most tumors, about 160,000 of them, are spread from cancers in other parts of the body. These are called “metastatic” tumors. Cancers of the lung, breast, kidney and melanoma skin can-

cer are the most likely types of cancer to spread to the brain. Working with Thompson Cancer Survival Center, physicians at Fort Sanders use a combination of surgery, radiation and chemotherapy to treat metastatic tumors. “We customize a treatment program for each patient,” said Peterson. “It just depends on what they need.”

A smaller portion of brain tumors, about 40,000 per year in the U.S., originate within the brain. These are called “primary” tumors. Of those, less than half are cancerous, although they still may be life-threatening because the tumor presses on the brain. “Not all brain tumors are cancerous,” explained Peterson. “But benign tumors still need to

be followed and may need to be removed because of pressure on the brain.” After removal, most benign tumors do not grow back or spread further, but serial followup with a neurosurgeon may be needed to watch for potential recurrence. Under a microscope, benign tumor cells usually have distinct borders and almost a normal appearance, according

to the American Brain Tumor Association. “We do a CT scan and an MRI and these may provide good clues, but sometimes you need a piece of the tumor before you know it’s truly benign or cancerous. You can tell something’s going on but not the specifics about what it is,” said Peterson. “Some benign tumors are classic looking, others we’re not sure. Sometimes tumors can look benign but they turn out to be metastatic cancer.” A malignant primary tumor is one that is cancerous. These tend to be fast-growing and send out tentacle-like tissue into the rest of the brain, or shed cells that travel throughout the brain. No one really knows what causes primary brain tumors, although excessive radiation exposure does increase the risk, as do a few rare genetic conditions, according to the National Cancer Institute. “Some speculate head trauma can cause certain benign tumors, but how many times do you hit your head over a lifetime? One thing we can say is that there’s no association with cell phones or living near power lines,” said Peterson. “Really the term is multifactorial, because there is no one thing associated with brain tumors,” he added.

Symptoms and treatment of brain tumors Symptoms of brain tumors can be subtle at first, but they increase as the tumor grows larger. “The symptoms of brain tumors are weakness; headache, especially one that’s worse in morning; nausea; and vomiting, if the tumor is big enough,” said Dr. Paul Peterson, neurosurgeon with Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center and Fort Sanders Neurosurgery and Spine. There are four main types of treatment for brain tumors, and most patients receive a combination of therapies, depending on their specific needs. ■ Surgery – The goal of surgery is to remove as much of the tumor as possible without damaging the surrounding brain tissue. At the very least, the surgeon will get a sample of the tumor for a biopsy, but in many cases the tumor can be removed. The biopsy reveals whether the tumor is cancerous or not. ■ Radiation therapy – Using X-rays, gamma rays or pro-

ton beams, radiation therapy either is used to shrink tumors before surgery or as a follow up to surgery to get rid of any residual cancer cells left. Some types of radiation are used on non-cancerous tumors as well. ■ Chemotherapy – Medications that kill cancer cells are often used after surgery to reduce the chance the tumor will grow and spread. ■ Targeted therapy – New medicines being tested in clinical trials work differently than standard chemotherapy. Instead of killing all cells, they target certain types of cells in an effort to stop tumors. ■ Watchful waiting – For slow-growing tumors, this approach involves regular monitoring of the tumor without actively removing it. For more information about treatment options for brain tumors at Fort Sanders Regional, call 865-673-3678 or visit

Gamma Knife – a treatment option Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center and Thompson Cancer Survival Center work together to offer the latest in surgical and nonsurgical brain tumor treatment options. “Thompson is just across the street from Fort Sanders, so we work together for radiation treatment and chemotherapy,” said Dr. Paul Peterson, a neurosurgeon at Fort Sanders. “Plus, we treat with the Gamma Knife, we do biopsies

and brain tumor removal.” Fort Sanders has the region’s only Leksell Gamma Knife Perfexion unit, the most advanced and widely used radiosurgery treatment in the world, which uses focused radiation to target cancerous tumors precisely, without damaging nearby tissue. This technology is most often used on metastatic brain tumors and to supplement traditional brain surgery or in cases where

traditional surgery is not possible. Other advantages to Gamma Knife treatment include: ■ Typically the procedure is done in a one-day session. ■ Gamma Knife is non-invasive, minimizing surgical complications. ■ Recovery time is minimal allowing patients to return to their normal activities and lifestyle. ■ Multiple sites can be treated during one session.

CENTER OF EXCELLENCE: ONCOLOGY Fort Sanders Regional and Thompson Cancer Survival Center provide the region’s most comprehensive cancer care. From diagnosis to treatment to rehabilitation, we offer care options not available anywhere else in our region. Working together to provide the best patient care that’s Regional Excellence!

HALLS/FOUNTAIN CITY Shopper news • MARCH 10, 2014 • B-3

Everybody loves Nita By Cindy By Cindy Taylorr The Powell Playhouse production of “Everybody Loves Opal” played to sold-out audiences at every performance. Some patrons came to honor playhouse founder Nita Buell Black, who passed away Feb. 27 – opening day. Others who attended didn’t know Black but had heard of the comedy and brilliant acting and were excited to see the play. No one was disappointed. “We will always miss Nita,” said stage manager Carly Johnson. “But this is not our last performance. The Powell Playhouse will go on in her memory.” The cast and crew dedicated the play to Black. A single white slipcovered chair sat stage left during performances in memory of the one who had touched the lives of so many, including the performers in the last play she cast.

Sol (Grant McMahan) gets a talking-to from Officer Joe (Brian Murphy) just before the curtain goes up.

Elizabeth Eaker preps backstage for her role as Gloria. Eaker took on the role of director as well when Nita Buell Black became too ill to continue.
