Dogwood Arts Festival spotlights

Fountain City

Dogwood trails in Knoxville are beginning to bloom for the annual Dogwood Arts Festival. Fountain City is the featured trail for 2017.

By Jake Mabe Fountain City will take center stage during this year’s Dogwood Arts Festival, which runs through April 30. The community will host this year’s featured trail, which dates back to 1957. It includes 16 miles

of 3,200 blooming dogwoods and many flowering azaleas. The Historic North Hills Trail is highlighted in North Knox too, as well as the Timberline Estates trail in Halls, designed with dogwoods in mind. More than 100 other dogwoods have been planted in recent years as

part of the Bazillion Blooms project. A full list of open gardens, camera sites and other events can be found at The Fountain City trail is presented by Gentry-Griffey Funeral Home and Crematory. Fountain City business sponsors are R. Larry

The East Tennessee Community Design Center is drawing plans for public access points to connect Beaver Creek from Halls to Powell under the direction of the Legacy Parks Foundation. Wayne Blasius, executive director of the Design Center, spoke to the Halls Business & Professional Association last week about the work underway. A portion of the cost was contributed by the business associations of Halls and Powell, HBPA and PBPA.

By Sandra Clark Last week’s story about legislation introduced by state Rep. Rick Staples implied a problem with drinking water in public schools since Staples wants to require school systems to test it. His bill (HB0631) was scheduled to be heard by the House Education & Administrative Planning subcommittee on Tuesday, March 28. Meanwhile, we checked with state and local agencies to clarify the current status of school water, especially in schools built before June 19, 1986, when the federal lead ban took effect. Tennessee Department of Health spokesperson Shelley Walker refused to comment on pending legislation. Russ Oaks, chief operating officer for Knox County Schools, said the local system has been proactive in testing water.

The project’s technical volunteer is landscape architect Trey Benefield, a principal with Benefield Richters - Design + Build Company, with offices on Union Avenue downtown. Blasius could not define a timeline, but said afterward, “It is neat how all the north Knox projects are like dots being connected.” The ET Community Design Center is also working on low-impact development plans for Collier Preserve, adjacent to the Powell Branch Library on Emory Road, and for façade im-

provements for Historic Powell Station. Founded in 1970 by architect Bruce McCarty, the design center is a nonprofit membership organization that matches volunteer professionals with community groups to help design and plan community projects. These rough designs are then used by the community groups to raise funds to implement the plans. The center serves Knox and the other 16 counties of the East Tennessee Development District.

Beaver Creek: Connecting the dots

“Working with Knoxville Utilities Board in 2007, we surveyed all schools and remediated as required.” KUB tested water samples from schools in its service area and KCS hired a private lab to test samples from other water districts. “Some marginal readings came back,”

but nothing involving pipes. Remediation included replacing a faucet or water cooler. “Recognizing this isn’t static, we can have deterioration over time, (KCS) decided to test water regularly,” Oaks said. Twenty percent of schools are tested annually, meaning every school will

be tested every five years. Oaks said school staff pull 10 samples at each school, focusing on drinking water. So is the water safe? “Our (testing) actions are proactive and prudent. Everywhere we check, we ensure that it’s safe. KUB has been great working with us,” Oaks said.

Buzz Thomas will return to his role as director of Great Schools Partnership. Bob Thomas is a longtime Fountain City resident whose wife, Beckye Justice Thomas, was choral director at Central High School. Their son, Brandon, graduated from Central High School and UT.

Volunteers, many from Corryton Church, raise the walls of Shannon Perry’s new home.

New home for Perrys honors Temple By Sandra Clark First you see cars lining both sides of the street for two blocks in either direction; then you hear hammers, striking nails in rhythm; then you smell new wood and feel excitement in the air. It’s spring. Time for another Habitat for Humanity house in Knoxville. On Saturday, volunteers and Habitat staff raised the walls for a new home for Shannon Perry and her three kids: Ethan, 15; Leland, 9; and Adelynn, 18 months. “You’ve got to be careful where you swing your hammer on opening day,” said Bob Temple. The House of Hope at 2823 Tecoma Ave. is being built in his honor by HopeBuilders, Corryton Church and Perry. Temple is a developer/


home builder and longtime supporter of Habitat. His son, Rob, was with his dad on Saturday. Perry was wielding a hammer with other volunteers. She expects to move into the four-bedroom, twobath home in mid-June. “It will be the first time Leland and Adelynn have had a room of their own,” she said. The family stops by most evenings, doing cleanup. Their excitement is growing. Perry grew up in South Knoxville, graduating from South-Doyle High School. For the past seven years, she’s lived in Corryton and is a member of Corryton Church. She’s employed at Gastrointestinal Associates. Son Ethan had transferred to Fulton High School to participate in its commu-


nications magnet program before she learned their new home would be in the Whittle Springs and Fulton zones. “Corryton Church is my family,” she said. “We’ll still be going to church there.” Perry has taken personal finance classes as a part of the Habitat program. She’s learned so much that she’s giving tips to friends at work. “You’ll be on the radio like Dave Ramsey,” we joked. Tecoma is a quiet street that dead ends at Whittle Springs Golf Course. It’s an established area with deep lots and mature trees. The Perry family is ready to join the neighborhood. They are thankful to the HopeBuilders and Corryton Church for making their dream possible.

Community service is Food City tradition Travis Woody speaks to Halls B&P It’s a proud tradition going back to the days when the local trading post was the community center. You’ve got options now, which is cool, but Travis Woody had that in mind when he arrived at the Halls Food City a decade ago. It’s part of his company’s mission. Woody, the Halls store’s manager, was the business spotlight speaker March 21 at the Halls Business and Professional Association. “Every time we go to (corporate headquarters in) Abingdon, Va., we start the meetings just like we did here today – with the pledge of allegiance and a prayer.” Food City has a fun history. Jack Smith, father of company president Steven Smith, opened an 8,000-square-foot store in Grundy, Va., in 1955 after waiting in line for 45 minutes to buy groceries at the one store around. His motto: “Run the best store in town.” That hasn’t changed. Woody said the company grew to 11 stores, and by 1984 bought the Food City chain and adopted its name. The company moved into the Knoxville market in

1989 with the acquisition of local White Stores. In 1999, it bought six Winn-Dixie locations, including the one in Halls. Food City moved from Halls Shopping Center (where Hammers and Elder’s Ace Hardware are today) to Halls Plaza. Two years later, Food City bought eight Bi-Lo stores, not including the former Halls store. It has recently expanded into Chattanooga and North Georgia by purchasing 29 more Bi-Lo stores. Woody says the Halls store has 105 associates. It was remodeled in 2006, a year after he became manager. “I enjoy being part of the Halls community.” Food City supports several Halls projects, particularly the Halls High School band, hosting an annual instore concert and the Band Boosters car show, which is

Beth Wolfe is this year’s Dogwood Trails committee chair and Connie Wallace is the Open Garden committee chair. John Fugate says that Commercial Bank in Fountain City will host a fundraising reception 5:30 to 7:30 p.m. Thursday, March 30. Tickets are $15, which includes one beverage ticket and a silent auction. A ribbon cutting will be held at GentryGriffey 11 a.m. Friday, March 31. The public is invited. A private lunch will follow at Beaver Brook Country Club. A highlight event, the Rhythm and Blooms Music Festival, will be held Friday to Sunday, April 7-9. According to the festival’s website, it was founded in 1955 by Betsey Creekmore, Martha Ashe, Betsy Goodson, the Knoxville Garden Club and a group of citizens after a comment by John Gunther, a New York writer who became a national figure on the popular radio quiz program “Information Please.” Gunther declared Knoxville “the ugliest city I have ever seen in America” in 1947’s “Inside USA.” Comedian Bob Hope was the headliner in

1970, and Elvis Presley made his first concert appearance in Knoxville as the headliner for the festival on April 8, 1972, at Stokely Athletics Center. Footage was filmed for the MGM documentary “Elvis on Tour.” The late radio personality Paul Harvey attended the event and offered this commentary in 1995: “There’s something about Knoxville that makes dogwood trees grow taller. Blossoms are giant-sized. Pink hybrids are a translucent pink. On shady slopes, you’ll see wild dogwood, pliant branches creating a fountain from the top of a limbless trunk and then drooping gracefully down in the waterfall of white blossoms. And, in residential streets, the nurtured dogwoods are resplendent by day and moonlighted by night.” Come on out to Fountain City and see these resplendent dogwoods, and much more, this spring.

How long are your arms? What good is it, my brothers and sisters, if you say you have faith but do not have works? Can faith save you? If a brother or sister is naked and lacks daily food, and one of you says to them, “Go in peace; keep warm and eat your fill,” and yet you do not supply their bodily needs, what is the good of that? So faith by itself, if it has no works, is dead. (James 2:14-17 NRSV) The faith/works discussion is 2,000 years old, but we still struggle with it. The problem is that having faith is fairly easy. We believe in God, trust in Jesus, and worship regularly and devoutly. However, when the going gets tougher, when we actually have to do something about our faith, take a stand, whether it is popular or not, face opposition or even real danger, what do we do? Pass the buck? Think someone else will fix it? There are children dying now in sub-Saharan Africa, for lack of food. The pictures of these babies will break your heart: Their eyes are large because their cheeks are sunken, their mothers’ eyes are hopeless because they have no food for themselves and precious little for their

OneLife settles into unusual new home By Carol Z. Shane “We have all this glass,” says the Rev. Dylan Martin of OneLife Church. “I like to sit there and look out – that’s one of my favorite parts.” When you build a church in a former Just For Feet building, “lots of glass” and a beautiful view of the blue sky are some of the perks. The church began in Powell community living rooms in 2008 under the leadership of the Rev. Rodney Arnold. Named for Arnold’s oft-stated belief that “one life can make a difference,” the congregation has had several homes due to continued growth. “We very quickly grew,” says Martin. “We want to give God the credit for that.” When the Just For Feet building at Knoxville Center mall became available, OneLife had expanded to two campuses – one in Powell, one in Halls. Interestingly Martin, who graduated from Central High School in 2003, had noticed the vacant retail space years before, while he was studying at UT and later online at Liberty University.

What if George Washington were on Twitter? By Kip Oswald

Just about every person I know has a Twitter account. Even our school has one, so I began wonder i ng about the pre sident s of the United States and TwitKip ter. President Obama was the first president to have a Twitter account, but since he rarely used it, President Trump is actually being called the “Twitter President” due to his daily multiple tweets. So I began thinking what would it have been like if the other 43 presidents had been on Twitter. So let’s pretend that all our presidents had a Twitter account or the media were tweeting about them. When I asked several people what they knew about George Washington, I got little accurate information. Most said he was our first president, but no one knew he was the only president ever to be unanimously elected president. Also, a few said he was called the Father of Our Country, but no one knew that the people tried to call him “His Highness, the President of the United States of America, and Protector of their Liberties,” and that it was Washington who named himself “Mr. President.” Everyone knew we celebrate Washington’s birthday in February, but no one knew that it became a holiday while he was still president. There were some fun facts no one knew. For instance, Washington was homeschooled by his father and

brother until he quit school altogether to be a surveyor at 15. His favorite foods were cream of peanut soup, mashed sweet potatoes with coconut, string beans with mushrooms and pineapples. When Washington became president, he did not have enough money to get to his own inauguration so he had to borrow $600 from a neighbor. However, when he was president, he turned down his salary of $25,000, which was two percent of the U.S. budget, and even had a job running a ferry service across the Potomac River during his first year as president. By the way, if the president made two percent of the U.S. budget now, he would make $80 billion instead of the current $400,000 presidential salary. There were some big misunderstandings by all the people I talked to. They thought George Washington lived in Washington, D.C., had wooden teeth and chopped down a cherry tree! For these mistakes, I made three tweets from President Washington! George Washington @ FatherofOurCountry I was the first president and the only president to never live in Washington, D.C., the capital town named for me! George Washington @ FatherofOurCountry At 57, I had all my teeth pulled and I wore a set of ivory teeth and human false teeth from then on! George Washington @ FatherofOurCountry I never chopped down that cherry tree! Parson Weems made up that fake news story! Next week: John Adams on Twitter! Send comments to oswaldsworldtn@gmail. com

Last weekend we were privileged to take elementary children for a retreat at Camp Ta-Pa-Win-Go in Watauga, Tenn. It was a meaningful time, and I am grateful for the leadership of our staff and volunteers who made the weekend so special. I encourage you to read more about all the fun they had and how the camp theme, “Unreal Love,” communicated how “Unreal” God’s love is for us. Spring is a special time in our community – not only because of the Steve Diggs blooming flowers and opportunity to help people encounter Jesus through the unique atmosphere at camp, but also because warmer temperatures and longer days provide us additional opportunities to connect with young people and be in relationship with them. Spring also brings with it additional opportunities to be with so many in our community and share the Good News story that is happening at Emerald Youth. Our prayer and fundraising breakfast will be Friday, May 5, and we’d love to have you join us in celebration of our 25th anniversary and envision the future. This event is completely free, and if you’re even remotely curious about the work we do with children in our city, there isn’t a better way to get a taste of it than at this event. I invite you to host a table by bringing nine of your friends, family members, co-workers or neighbors. Or, simply register to attend as a guest. To do either, please visit our website at We’d love to have you! Your dedication to every child, in every neighborhood, will help us ensure each young person has the opportunity for a full life.

last words

New beginning for Butch Jones This is an exciting time in Tennessee football. Can you see the sparks and feel the thrill? It is the new beginning of Butch Jones’ coaching career. He has a new boss. He has five new primary assistants. He will have a new quarterback. This is Butch’s secondbest chance to become one of the truly famous leaders in the game. His first was when Dave Hart coaxed him away from Cincinnati as the replacement for Derek Dooley. He received a motivational boost in pay and inherited great facilities and the rich Tennessee tradition. Even with roster deficiencies, some degree of success seemed certain. There was almost no way Jones could do worse than his predecessor. Butch, indeed, built brick by brick and made considerable progress but did not set the proverbial woods on fire. His recruiting classes were better than his 3021 record. He lost a couple he should have won. Some pearls of wisdom were misconstrued. Critics sneered. Timing wasn’t too good but “champions of life” and “five-star hearts” sounded noble enough to me.

Marvin West

Last season was a double disappointment. The Vols managed to miss out on the SEC East championship in that inexplicable setback at South Carolina. At Vanderbilt, the Vols played themselves out of the Sugar Bowl. Just guessing, but there may have been some unrest in the ranks. Fans certainly fretted. This is almost like starting over. New deck of cards. The youth movement is complete. The depth problem has been reduced. In theory, 32 of 44 from the two-deep chart are returning. That sounds really good until you notice that many of the best players are gone. There is now more ordinary optimism where wild and wonderful expectations once lived. There is talent and better odds on development. Some who were injured have healed. Competition at several positions is already obvi-

Shelby County to Knox: Stop Harry Brooks’ Opportunity Scholarship Pilot Program was drafted to provide private school scholarships to students in public school districts that have at least 30 schools performing in the state’s bottom 5 percent. In other words, Memphis. And although they didn’t exactly tell him to take his bill and shove it, droves of Memphians traveled to Nashville last week to attend the Education Administration & Planning Committee meetings so they could let Brooks know what they think of his Memphisonly voucher plan: “Our community has to suffer the consequences of your decisions,” one parent said. “We have the highest poverty rate in any county of this size in the state of Tennessee. That’s real and with that comes challenges. When you take dollars out, you’re taking resources.” Democratic Rep. Johnnie Turner, a retired educator who represents an innercity Memphis district, said the voucher bill will siphon $19 million from the resources of the schools she represents. “Leave Shelby County alone,” Turner said. “Go pick somebody else’s schools to be your whipping dog. Why do we always have to be the dumping ground?” Brooks responded that

ous in spring drills. If what we hear from players is fact instead of fiction, Rock Gullickson lit the fire that is supposed to warm up the future. He was an all-NFL strength and conditioning coach who just happened to be unemployed when Butch called. I can still hear Jones’ enthusiastic endorsement … “We are ecstatic to welcome Rock … I know what he stands for as a coach and a person … he fits the culture we are continuing to build at UT … he has a comprehensive plan that I truly believe our players will greatly benefit from … he is passionate about his work, tireless, detail-oriented, and has a tremendous track record of developing and motivating players … he will provide the type of training needed to compete at the highest level.” That sounded to me like Butch had a need and Rock had a chance to meet it. No question about defensive backs coach Charlton Warren. He got a very large pay increase to come from North Carolina to fill a void. If he teaches corners to look back for the football, he will be worth all $450,000 a year.

For another half a million, Butch purchased extensive experience and credibility in Brady Hoke. The former head coach at Michigan has a giant reputation among defensive line coaches. He does face a challenge. The Tennessee head coach changed the offensive staff without changing the offense. Tight end coach Larry Scott made the big jump, to coordinator, and undoubtedly influenced the selection of quarterbacks coach Mike Canales and wide receivers coach Kevin Beard. All three have south Florida ties. Walt Wells’ Middle Tennessee recruiting connections helped him become offensive line coach. What all this says is Butch Jones has improved his chances of moving on up in the world. Contract extension? Five million instead of four? Joy, joy, strike up the band. All we need now are defensive tackles, outside linebackers, secondary solidity and results. Nine more wins might satisfy John Currie until Butch can get to 10.

He Roberto is a single parent who shares custody of his two daughters, Kylie and Hannah, with their mother. He is the only candidate in this district who currently has a website at www.

messing with Memphis Betty Bean

his bill is about giving families the choice of removing their children from failing schools and sending them to private schools. His cosponsor John DeBerry (a Democrat and a staunch supporter of charter and voucher bills) was pretty much Brooks’ only Memphis ally. DeBerry accused the crowd of “acting as though the zombies are going to come out and the moon is going to turn to blood if we pass vouchers.” Raumesh Akbari, another Memphis Democrat, challenged Brooks to show consistent proof that vouchers work. “You’re stepping into an area that is not your area, and you’re coming into my county and you’re telling us how we’re going to handle it. … If you want vouchers, include your county in it.” Another big stumbling block is end of term testing. Children receiving vouchers will be required to take the TNReady test. Non-voucher students won’t. Republican Ron Lollar, from Bartlett, was no kinder to Brooks than the rest of the Shelby County delegation.

“Everybody should have to take the same test. … There’s words for what you do to one child that you don’t do to all of them, and I think the courts will have something to say about that.” Knox County school board member Jennifer Owen makes a weekly trip to Nashville to observe educational issues being debated.

Witt embarks on race for clerk By Sandra Clark Sherry Witt is a wellliked, respected county officeholder who will find herself out of work in late 2018. So the register of deeds for 10 years is seeking to become Knox County clerk. “There’s an opening in the clerk’s office and I’m applying,” she says. Term limits will kick in next year for Mayor Tim Burchett, Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones, Witt and Clerk Foster Arnett. In addition, Cathy Quist Shanks has said she will not run for re-election as clerk of Circuit and Sessions courts. Witt, 58, has worked in the register’s office since she graduated from UT. She was chief deputy to Steve Hall before taking the top job. Now her deputy, Nick Mc-

Bride, is seeking to move up. A potential primary opponent has emerged. State Rep. Roger Kane is eyeing a courthouse post. He’s already announced he won’t seek re-election to the Legislature. Foster Arnett has been an anomaly among officeholders. He’s tough to work for, has sued the county for an unhealthy work environment (mold), and forgot that collecting hotel/motel taxes is part of his job. Yet he beat well-known Republicans Mike McMillan and Scott Moore in the 2010 primary and handily defeated former clerk Mike Padgett in 2014. Witt won’t commit on Arnett’s tenure, but she sees similarities between the duties of register and clerk.

“I have extensive experience in how a fee office works. Voters can have conf idence in my ability to operate a fiscally responsible clerk’s ofSherry Witt fice without compromising the level of service they deserve.” Witt has served as president of the state registers association and was voted Tennessee’s Outstanding Register in 2015. She is proud of her record in the register’s office. “We have reduced staff and budget over 10 years,” she says. Her office is totally paperless, with records stored electronically, saving

about a million copies per year. She has reduced staff through attrition as technology has made recordkeeping more efficient. The office currently has 22 fulltime and six part-time seasonal positions. Witt’s family includes daughters Shay and Chelsey; son-in-law Shane Gordon; and grandsons Grelyn and Seth. The life of an officeholder is busy, she says. Office hours are 8-4:30 weekdays. Some days start with a pre-work breakfast meeting. Many evenings are committed to nonprofits or Republican clubs. She is not worried about a primary opponent. “I grew up with seven brothers and sisters,” she says. “I’ve had to fight for everything I’ve got.”

HealtH & lifestyles News From Fort saNders regioNal medical ceNter

The woman in the mirror After bariatric surgery at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, sometimes the simplest things bring the greatest pleasure to those who have the procedure. “I can paint my toenails, girlfriend!” Tiara-Lady Wilson says with a laugh as she pulls her feet up into the chair to sit crosslegged. “And look what I can do now!” Wilson is an energetic woman with an infectious laugh and a positive attitude. It’s the same attitude that has helped her succeed in life, even winning the title of Miss Tennessee State University in 1998. It’s also the same attitude that has sustained her through years of medical problems that caused her to gain 100 pounds. Wilson began taking medications for pain and weakness from musculoskeletal issues and after receiving a diagnosis as bipolar when she was in graduate school. Later, she was found to have gestational diabetes during both of her pregnancies, but her blood sugar went back to normal until she was prescribed steroids for some fresh issues with pain. Steroids raised her blood sugar level, and diabetes reared its ugly head. Additional thyroid problems made a perfect storm for significant weight gain. “The weight just ballooned,”

she says. “I watched my body literally morph in front of me.” The woman in the mirror, once confident in her skin and comfortable with her size, became someone Wilson hardly recognized. “I describe it as ‘that other woman,’ and I didn’t like what I saw,” Wilson says. It was particularly frustrating because Wilson was eating natural and healthy foods. Sure, she had occasional snacks, but she wasn’t one to overdo. “I didn’t get it, because I wasn’t eating doughnuts, I wasn’t eating (chips), I wasn’t doing these things that you normally think people are doing when they’re gaining weight,” Wilson says. In October of 2013 she stepped on the scales and weighed in at 313 pounds. She was mortified. “I was miserable, and when I looked in the mirror I wasn’t seeing who I knew God created me to be,” Wilson says. On the inside, she could feel diabetes shutting her body

down. “I was sticking myself 10 times a day to give myself insulin or to check my blood sugar,” Wilson says. “Being a diabetic was a job. I was over that.” Wilson describes it as “dying a slow death,” with her children serving as witnesses. She decided she had to take action. “I want to be an active mother,” Wilson says, “I want to dance in the rain; I want to live!” With behavioral therapy classes, a focus on clean eating, and positive thinking, Wilson began to feel better, but she was still morbidly obese and diabetes was still a problem. When Wilson decided to attend a weight loss seminar and heard from bariatric surgeon Jonathan Ray, MD, she had a great feeling about it. She learned the procedure was less expensive than she had previously thought, and the bonus was that the surgery would be performed at Fort Sanders Regional. “I trust Covenant Health, and it made me comfortable that Tiara-Lady Wilson got I was going to be her groove back after at a hospital that weight loss surgery at I trust,” Wilson Fort Sanders Regional says, “and that and even participatthey had partnered ed in a fashion show with doctors who for post-bariatric would be of the patients.

The ‘How?’ and ‘Why?’ of bariatric surgery Obesity has become a significant national health issue. Our society is overweight. The foods we eat are often poor choices and can lead to obesity. Morbid obesity, defined as having a BMI over 35 and being at risk for obesity-related health issues, is closely correlated with serious medical conditions including heart disease, high blood pressure and diabetes. The Fort Sanders Center for Bariatric Surgery is the answer to the prayers of many who battle obesity and its accompanying issues. Bariatric surgeons Mark Colquitt, MD, and Jonathan Ray, MD, have helped more than 2,200 patients lose close to 200,000 pounds through a combination of

surgical, spiritual and emotional support. The atmosphere at the Center for Bariatric Surgery is one of support and encouragement. Many of our staff members have undergone bariatric surgery and use their experience to help others be successful on their journey. The surgeons offer two main options for their patients: laparoscopic gastric bypass (usually done as a robotic procedure), in which a smaller stomach pouch is created and a portion of the small intestine is rerouted to the pouch; and sleeve gastrectomy, which removes a portion of the stomach and creates a narrower digestive tube. “The safety of bariatric surgery has improved greatly,” Dr.

Colquitt said. “Today, the surgical risk of the procedure is comparable to having a gallbladder removed.” He said in most instances, the patient goes home within 24 hours after surgery. “But in order for bariatric surgery to succeed, people have to commit to making the lifestyle changes to support the choice,” Dr. Colquitt said. Dr. Ray added, “Our team will be there for the patient before and after the procedure. We can get them to the door, but they have to walk through it.” “Our goal is to promote health and wellness and support an obesity-free lifestyle,” they say, “and to help our patients become more productive – and fully engaged in life.”

same standard as the doctors I was used to in the Covenant system.” By the day of her surgery, she had lost a total of 56 pounds on her own. While it was an accomplishment to be proud of, she still needed to lose more weight, and she still hadn’t conquered her diabetes. Her surgery was performed in late 2015, and today Wilson has lost about an additional 100 pounds. And she’s most interested in living life and spreading positivity. Wilson has been commissioned as a Stephen Minister at Fort Sanders Regional, providing spiritual care to patients, families and staff at the hospital where she was born, where she was once an employee, and where she had the surgery that changed her life. She’s also created a video blog to share her experiences, and encourage women to be their best and happiest. “For me, this was such a blessing,” Wilson says. “I thank God for Dr. Ray because he gave me the opportunity to live again.” To learn more about bariatric surgery at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, visit or call 865-331-BAR1 (2217).

Get to know bariatric surgeon Jonathan Ray, MD Q Where are you from and where did you attend medical school? A I am from Thibodaux, Louisiana, and I attended LSU Medical

School in New Orleans.

Q What types of bariatric surgery do you offer to patients? A At Fort Sanders Regional, we perform Sleeve Gastrectomy, Roux-en-Y Gastric Bypass, Lap Band and the Loop Duodenal Switch surgeries.

Jonathan Ray, MD

Q How long have you been doing bariatric surgery? A I started performing bariatric surgery 14 years

ago in Blount County. In 2013, Dr. Mark Colquitt and I joined with Covenant Health to practice at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center in Knoxville.

Q What sort of comprehensive programs does Fort Sanders Regional offer for bariatric patients? A The hospital has the Fort Sanders Center for Bariatric Surgery, which is accredited as a Comprehensive Center under the Metabolic and Bariatric Surgery Accreditation and Quality Improvement. We offer regular education, dietary information, exercise programs, psychological support and support groups with lifelong follow up to help focus on long-term success. Q What is the most rewarding part of being a bariatric surgeon? A I love witnessing the dramatic improvement and resolution of ma-

jor medical issues like diabetes, hypertension and hyperlipidemia, and overall improvement in the patients’ well-being as well as the weight loss. Seeing patients get excited about life again is very rewarding.

Q How can those interested in making a life change through bariatric surgery learn more? A We offer free bariatric seminars led by a physician two to three times per month at various locations in East Tennessee. More information is also available at

Regional excellence. Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center is the referral hospital where other facilities send their most complex patients.
