Sparks of Life By Reneé Kesler Sports play a pivotal role throughout all of history, including African American history. The Beck Cultural Exchange Center, “the place where African American history and culture are Joe Fishback preserved,” has in its archives a plethora of sports icons Knoxville has produced. World heavyweight boxing champion “Big John” Tate, professional basketball player and NBA coach Elston Turner, general manager of the Oakland Raiders and former NFL linebacker Reggie McKenzie, college scout and former NFL guard Raleigh McKenzie, and former NFL running back LeRoy Thompson are just a few of the sports figures who have called Knoxville home. Yet indisputably, my personal all-time favorite athlete was a member of the state championship football team and graduate of Austin East High School Class of 1986, my brother, Joe Fishback. Fishback was inducted into the Greater Knoxville Sports Hall of Fame in 2016 after completing a highly decorated National Football League career. During his professional career, he excelled with the Atlanta Falcons and was a member of the Dallas Cowboys’ Super Bowl XXVIII team. Prior to his NFL career, Fishback was a collegiate athlete at Carson-Newman University under the leadership of coach Ken Sparks. The accomplishments that Fishback, a fouryear starter, achieved while at Carson-Newman under Sparks include NAIA All-American who participated in four consecutive national championship contests 1986-1989, bringing the title home in ’86, ’88 and ’89. In 1989, he was runner-up for the NAIA National Player of the Year award, was named South Atlantic Conference Defensive Player of the Year, was recipient of the title Carson Newman Male Athlete of the Year, and in 2013, was inducted into Carson-Newman’s Athletic Hall of Fame. While Fishback played with some of the greatest names in NFL history, he has also had the opportunity to be coached by the best. Positively, Coach Sparks, along with other outstanding coaches, have had a profound influence on his life and career. To page A-3

Turpin honored as Haslam Scholar Gibbs High senior Blake Turpin received a phone call of a lifetime when Jim Haslam personally called to let him know that he is one of 15 students nationwide who were awarded the Haslam Scholarship. The Haslam scholarship is the most prestigious scholars program at the University of Tennessee and will allow Blake to attend college on a full ride. Following his sophomore year, he will have the opportunity to Blake Turpin

spend half of a semester in Scotland studying with other students. The scholarship is community service-based, and Blake spends time at Pond Gap and Inskip elementary schools sharing his time and talents with staff members and students and volunteer-

ing 15 hours each semester. Blake was one of 360 students who qualified for the scholarship. Through the application/interview, the numbers were narrowed to 30 finalists. The finalists went through a weekend-long interview before begin notified of the honor. Principal Jason Webster called Blake an “awesome student academically” and was very proud of him for this award.

‘They walked down the aisle singing’ The Blue family’s early Knoxville days remembered

By Betty Bean A couple of days before Chris Blue headed out to Los Angeles to take the next step toward his future, he stopped by Peace and Goodwill Missionary Baptist Church to say thank you. Nobody was there, but he stood in front of the church and posted a video to Facebook with the following message: “Earlier today I had the privilege of going to where it all started when me and my family moved to Tennessee!! You’ll hear me say it till I can’t say it no more!!.... Thank you ALL SO much for all of your prayers Love and support!!!! GOD BLESS YOU ALL!! I love you!!!” Diane Jordan, whose husband, John W. Jordan, is pastor at Peace and Goodwill, remembers the first time she saw Chris and his family. Her brother Kevin had been raving about some talented kids. The eldest boy, PJ, went to Bearden High School with Kevin’s son. The family was new to Knoxville, and Kevin wanted the Jordans to invite them to sing at Peace and Goodwill. The next Sunday, the Blue Brothers walked into the church

and into the Jordans’ hearts. “They were like the Jackson Five, but they were singing gospel. Chris, the baby, was Michael. He was only 10 years old and he was this big,” she said, measuring out about 4 feet from the floor. “We immediately adopted them as our godchildren – those five boys and the two girls, too.” From then until now, Diane Jordan has relentlessly promoted the Blue Brothers. Chris would preach his first sermon at Peace and Goodwill when he was 12. He was ordained at 13. “The whole Peace and Goodwill family embraced us with so much love,” PJ Blue said. Today, Chris is 26, and poised on the brink of stardom. He’s the crowd favorite on NBC’s popular talent show “The Voice,” and after his first appearance, celebrity judge Blake Shelton predicted he’d win it all. The Blue family moved here from Florida in August 2000, after their mother, Janice, made a prayerful decision to make a new life in a new place.

Chris Blue is the crowd favorite on NBC’s “The Voice.” “It was a faith move,” she said. “God had been speaking to me, and I knew that with God on my side, I could make it.” She researched different cities and narrowed her choices to Charlotte, Atlanta, Nashville, Chattanooga and Knoxville, but wasn’t certain where she was supposed to go until she encountered a prophet at a church conference in Dublin, Ga. “There was a man of God, ministering prophetically, and he called me out. He didn’t know my situation, but I’d asked God before I went

to the conference – ‘School is about to start. Where would you have us to go? Which city? And when?’ “The Prophet said, ‘I see you and your children moving to the state of Tennessee.’ I said, ‘OK, but which city? I need to be sure.’ The man of God said, ‘I see you and your family established in the city of Knoxville.’ But he didn’t say when.” After the Sunday service, he told her she’d be leaving within a few days. By Wednesday, the Blues had their U-Haul and everything they needed for the journey. PJ, whose given name is Earnest, was a surrogate father to his younger siblings (his email handle is IMFirstof7). Today, he is an assistant minister at Trinity Tabernacle Church of God in Christ. His deep, resonant voice gives him away as the basso profundo in the family choir. Next is Julius – nicknamed Maestro (he plays multiple instruments, has earned a degree in music from the University of Tennessee and is minister of music at Peace and Goodwill). Michael To page A-3

News from Tennova Health & Fitness

Josephine Wiegers: healthy and fit in the triple digits By Carol Z. Shane On a recent Wednesday morning, Josephine Wiegers – you can call her “Jo” – rides the recumbent bicycle on Tennova Health & Fitness Center’s second f loor. Surrounded by other exercisers on other fitness machines, she is in a bright and chatty mood. “I meet with friends here,” she says. Jo is particularly happy to talk about her recent birthday party. About 90 people, including her greatgrandson, gathered to celebrate and wish her another happy, healthy year. Jo was born in 1917. She’s 100 years old. The whole time she’s on the bike – answering questions, talking in detail about her career as a teacher more than 80 years ago – she never stops cycling. Dedicated to exercise, she says, “I’m trying to stay on my feet, and I know this is what I should be doing. I want to keep being able to walk.” According to Tennova’s fitness director Katie DePersio, she’s exactly right. “It’s so important as people age to keep moving. “Everybody gets old. Everybody loses the ability to do some things that they did at a younger age. But an exercise program of cardio and stretching helps blood circulation and joint mobility. Weights help with bone density – even just light hand weights. People have a misconception that weight-lifting is going to bulk you up like Arnold Schwarzenegger. That’s just not true! Weights are an indispensable part of staying fit as we age.” As difficult as the physical part of aging is, DePersio says the psychological toll is the hardest part. “Once you lose mobility in the joints and strength in the legs, you lose the ability to react to uneven surfaces. You lose bone density and muscle, everything tightens up, your body shuts down. Eventually you fall, and then it becomes fear. You’re afraid that you’ll fall again. Once you start letting fear take over, you lose independence. And once you start asking for help, your family and friends think you need help all the time – it’s a vicious cycle.” DePersio says that exercise can help seniors negotiate all kinds of everyday situations, like getting objects off a high shelf and bending down to pick something up. Then, when help is actually needed, family members are likelier to see a strong, capable person who simply needs an extra hand at the moment, like anyone would. Tennova offers many options for older folks, including their “Stretch & Flex” and “Get Movin’ ” group classes and even warm water classes for the relief of pain from arthritis and fibromyalgia. Sedentary seniors can start with chair exercises. Up on the fitness f loor, Jo has finished her routine. Her two daughters, Gayle Wiegers and Cheryl Dykes, are there to take her home. “Family support is so important,” say DePersio. Gayle remarks on her mom’s mental agility. “She does a crossword puzzle every day. She knows Latin roots, and picks words apart.” Cheryl agrees, saying, “She loves words and At her most recent birthday party, word games.” Josephine poses with her great-grandWalking out the door with Jo and her son Eli Dykes, who celebrated his first daughters, I check my cell phone and then birthday three days before her 100th. look for my car key.

Katie Thorpe performed a beautiful ballet piece as the Snow Dancer in the poppy field scene. Students from Gresham Middle and Shannondale Elementary schools joined the cast and were delightful as the Munchkins, poppies and dancers. Chuck Sayne coordinated the live orchestra, which added to the drama of the play. Theatre director Erin J.

Dental Answers Dr. Steven C. Crippen Question: “I have recently noticed that my gums bleed when I brush my teeth. Could this be a sign of serious health problems?”

Come Ride with us!

Answer: Sometimes bleeding gums can indeed be a sign of health problems in the mouth or other parts of the body. Most often such, bleeding is indicative of some degree of gum disease (gingivitis or Periodontitis), which can usually be treated successfully in the dental office. Periodontitis, the more severe type of gum disease, can lead to loss of some or all of the teeth if dental care is not started soon enough. Gum disease also has been found

News from EyeXcel

40-year eye care legacy continues with a new name There is a personal touch to everything about the long-standing optometry practice of Dr. David A. Patton, O.D., including the sign in front of which he proudly stands. Dr. Patton built the frame of the new sign in his woodworking shop, a hobby he enjoys when not caring for his patients. Over the last few decades, Dr. Patton has provided care and has helped countless eyes see better, but now he is also focused on ensuring that his patients and friends are still being cared for many decades from now. Most people know Dr. Patton as the founding partner of Drs. Rhyne & Patton Optometrists, and along with Dr. M.W. Rhyne Jr., he started in 1978 with just a dream and a desire to help people. “Back in the early days when we were just

starting out, we didn’t have enough patients, so we were truck farmers growing and selling vegetables on the side. I’m glad my wife stuck around because she was definitely not happy about helping,” Dr. Patton says jokingly. A lot has changed in the nearly 40 years in practice. “We have so much better technology, medicines, diagnostic machines and treatment methods today that just didn’t exist when we first started. We can treat so many things now, and it’s exciting to see all the changes and to be a part of it; not only in eye care, but all of medicine.” The most recent change to the practice, though, has not been an advancement in medicine, but some new faces and a new name. “I knew I didn’t want the practice to just shut its doors one

day,” says Dr. Patton. His first order of business was to bring in new doctors, but was very selective in picking the partners to continue his legacy. The practice is all about relationships, and he wanted to see that it remained that way. “It’s a family atmosphere. I love seeing the same patients year after year. I like getting to know my patients. I enjoy meeting their vision needs, but oftentimes my staff gets mad at me for talking too long about fishing or about what’s new with their children or grandchildren,” he says with a laugh. In 2015, Dr. Bruce D. Gilliland was added to the practice. He is the only low-vision specialist in East Tennessee, and loves people and meeting their needs. Dr. Patton grew the practice again in 2016 when he added Frank A. Carusone, a young optometrist who specializes in vision therapy and binocular disorders of the eyes relating to the brain. “Instead of adding more locations, we are growing our practice to involve more specialties so we can treat more people” says Dr. Patton.

Together with the new partners, Dr. Patton decided it was time for a name change. Instead of sticking with the old name that includes the last names of the original doctors, Dr. Patton thought it was the right time for a new identity that will carry the practice forward for the new doctors and next generation. “When I step down one day, I’ll know that this is a premier and thriving practice with a great name and reputation in the community that offers all aspects of vision care.”

Wes Lunsford and Laurel Wright, known as The Young Fables, provided musical entertainment for the night at Central High. Thanks to the community members who bought tickets for supper, the companies and individuals who donated auction items and the Young Fables for providing music, the Emma Walker Scholarship Foundation raised close to $15,000 to establish (and continue for years to come) a scholarship to a senior in memory of slain student Emma Walker. Louis’ Restaurant provided a delicious spaghetti dinner and sold 300 tickets to the event. Guests were able to bid on auction

items, including autographed athlete photos and memorabilia, gift baskets, a beautiful Paula Deen chair, guitar signed by Richard Marx, Chris Stapleton tour poster and more.

Gibbs High senior Leah Sohm signed to play softball at Carson-Newman University next season. Leah has been a member of the Eagles softball team for four years and credits coach Carol Mitchell for helping her become the caliber ballplayer she is today. “She taught us to always give 120 percent,” said Leah. “I love and respect the game.” Mitchell called Leah a “phenomenal athlete and hard worker” and appreciates how Leah doesn’t take her talents for granted. She selected CNC because it is close to Leah Sohm home and that is her coach’s alma mater. She plans to major in physical education while in college. Attending the signing were Leah’s parents, Jeff and Erin Sohm, sisters Kala and Cody, grandparents Steve and Beverly McMahan and Wayne and Brenda Sohm, friends and teammates.

I asked my brothers, sisters and cousins if they studied the presidents in their social studies or government classes. All of us study about some of our presidents who served at different times during our country’s history, but I decided that maybe all the presidents really don’t get studied by the time we get out of school. That makes Kip sense, because I am finding that when I ask really smart adults what they know about some presidents, I am getting a stunned look. This week, I asked what they knew about our second president, John Adams, and they thought I meant John Adams, the News Sentinel sportswriter! So, I had to rephrase that I meant President John Adams! Then, I found they knew nothing about him, which at least meant I didn’t have to correct any misunderstandings about this president like I did about George Washington. Actually, if there had been Twitter, there could have been many great tweets during his presidency. John Adams was the first president to live in the White House, even though his wife called it her “chilly castle” because they moved in before most of the rooms were finished. She even hung her clothes to dry in some of the unfinished rooms.

Adams was not only the first lawyer to become president of the United States, he was also the first vice president to be elected president. Adams and Thomas Jefferson were in the White House together as Jefferson served as Adams’ vice president, and ran against him for president. When Jefferson won the election, though, Adams became one of only 10 presidents to lose reelection. He and Jefferson then became enemies and joined different political parties, and Adams refused to attend Jefferson’s inauguration. Adams and Jefferson died on the same day, July 4, 1826, exactly 50 years after the Declaration of Independence. Tweets from President Adams could be: John Adams @FoundingFather So proud that one of three buildings at the Library of Congress in Washington, D.C., is named the John Adams Building. John Adams @FoundingFather In 1798, I signed an act of Congress for the creation of the United States Marine Band, the oldest active professional musical organization in our country. John Adams @FoundingFather I pray Heaven to bestow the best of Blessings on this House and all that shall hereafter inhabit it. May none but honest and wise Men ever rule under this roof.

Mobile Meals delivers more than food By Margie Hagen Well, bless his heart! When Mick Mulvaney, director of the U.S. Office of Management and Budget, stated two weeks ago that programs like Meals on Wheels are “just not showing any results,” he obviously had not been on a ridealong delivery. Farragut Mayor Ralph McGill makes it his business to participate in Mobile Meals, Knox County’s Meals on Wheels program, and he sees the benefits firsthand. During a delivery last week, McGill accompanied volunteer driver Ruben Hernandez to Farragut resident George Mandrus’ apartment. “The program provides an important service for some of our most valued citizens,” says McGill. “Inhome meal delivery enables them to continue living at home. Daily contact with volunteers like Ruben (Hernandez) provides much needed personal interaction. This organization delivers 900 meals each weekday and deserves our sincere thanks and support.” States receive funding for these programs through

According to CAC Aging Services Manager Angela Grant, “If the budget is cut, it would cause hardship to a vulnerable segment of society.” Volunteer driver Ruben Hernandez doesn’t think about budgets when he delivers meals.

smile or pleasant greeting; for some it’s the only outside interaction they have. For 89-year-old George Mandrus, Mobile Meals allows him to keep living independently. “Seniors don’t want to go to nursing homes; they want to stay at home.” Physically, it’s hard for him to get around, so he relies on nearby family to take him to medical appointments. “The mind is still going but the body is not,” he says. A self-described “computer rat,” Mandrus runs a bond trading program for one of his sons. Right now it’s unclear how funding for Mobile Meals will be affected, but one thing is evident: the value the program provides to seniors. It’s more than just a meal. Seniors benefit from daily interaction, wellness checks and the ability to stay in their own homes longer. “These seniors are your neighbors and they should not be forgotten,” says Grant, adding, “We couldn’t do it without our volunteers.” To learn more about how you can help, visit k html or call 865-524-2786.

Clusters of joy The living, the living, they thank you, as I do this day; fathers make known to children your faithfulness. The Lord will save me, and we will sing to stringed instruments all the days of our lives, at the house of the Lord. (Isaiah 38:19-20 NRSV) Time was, in my family, that births took place in January. Mother and two of her three siblings were January babies. Daddy was also born in January, as were his father and mother. There were jokes that floated around the family about how unfair it was to have so many birthday celebrations in the same month. That pattern has shifted now, to April. My brother Warren and his wife, Libby, are April babies, as are my daughter Eden and my husband, Lewis. My daughter Jordan is a March baby, and her husband, Justin, was born in October. Like them, I am an outlier in the April pattern, because although I was due in October, I dilly-dallied around until the first wee hours of November. I am especially fond of birthdays because of their power to make what would be an otherwise ordinary day into a spe-

cial occasion. Birthdays bring back memories, tend to bring out old pictures and stories, and celebrate the life of one person. Sometimes when I am considering the joy of birthdays, I remember the birthday of our Lord, which we celebrate with all manner of food and gifts and partying, but too easily forget the birthday Boy and the difference He made in our world and in our lives. So, let’s celebrate the gift of life, not just on birthdays, but every day, and give thanks that we are here, alive, able to enjoy this beautiful world, with all its wonders and joys and challenges!

It’s spring! But – what’s green?



APRIL 21 - MAY 13


e f Ca


THE LONGEST RUNNING MUSICAL REVUE IN BROADWAY HISTORY! FEATURING nearly 40 of the GREATEST SONGS EVER RECORDED with such hits as On Broadway, Hound Dog, Poison Ivy, Stand by Me, Jailhouse Rock, Yakety Yak and I Am Woman.

Also coming up at the Playhouse...

If you’re reading this column on Wednesday, April 5, then you’ve already enjoyed two weeks of official springtime. And it’s been nice – after three nights of hard freezes, we’ve been having warm days, cool nights, occasional rain showers. The redbuds have rebounded from the cold snap into their usual luscious spring glory, and the cedars and elms are making pollen (Achoo!). Most of the trees, though, are still a little skeptical of it all; the buckeyes and wild cherries are barely starting to peek out with some leaves. The wily walnut trees know better. They’re waiting, as the seed packets say, until “all danger of frost has passed.” Nevertheless, as we drive around in our part of the world here in Knox County and nearby environs, we are seeing a lot of bright, spring-fresh new green leaves. But notice – uh-oh – they seem to be growing on only a couple of kinds of plants. Tall bright green trees, shorter bright green undergrowth bushes. We may be having some problems here, Houston. Look at the edges of the woods along I-75 or Highway 33. Those early green trees? They’re out way ahead of the usual early trees such as the poplars and the maples, serious competition for sunlight and nutrients. They aren’t from around here, as we say in East Tennessee. Actually, they are from across the water, brought to us from China by none other than the U.S. Department of Agriculture back around 1965. The Bradford Pear. To make matters worse, all that exuberant understory shrubbery that has been up and growing for weeks now, completely filling some areas under the trees and lining our highways, is another foreign invader, native to China, Japan, and Korea, brought to us compliments of the New York Botanical Garden in 1898 – the dreaded Amur bush honeysuckle. Now we know that there are at least two sides to every story, staunch differences of opinion – normal human behavior. Just look at politics – and religion! It’s that way with Bradford Pears. Lady Bird Johnson

Dr. Bob Collier

called them “the perfect tree.” The Tennessee Department of Environment and Conservation, in its publication The Tennessee Conservationist, calls them “evil dressed in white.” Perfect tree? Well, yes, in a number of ways. The people who love them point out that they grow very fast – a great feature for contractors, useful for quickly transforming a brand-new subdivision onto a tree-lined neighborhood. The trees are a uniform, lollipop shape, they bloom profusely early in the spring, and have lovely redto-maroon foliage in the fall. And they are disease and insect resistant; not even Japanese beetles will eat them. But the dark side to the perfect tree is as follows: The Bradford Pear’s rapid growth also makes it vulnerable to a short life, average 20 years or less, because it is so subject to wind damage – broken limbs, split trunks. The monotonous, uniform, stamped-from-apattern lollipop shape of the trees is disagreeable to a lot of folks, who prefer to see their accustomed variety in the shapes of their trees. The flowers of Bradford Pears are notoriously malodorous, a smell described by some as resembling that of rotting flesh. The fruits, eaten mostly by starlings, drop in yards and onto cars as they deteriorate, and smell unpleasant as well. And yet, the worst part is this: When those seeds that are eaten by birds are dispersed far and wide, and germinate and grow, they revert back to their ancestral Callery Pear, growing in dense thickets and bearing fierce, strong thorns that can penetrate a tractor tire or work boot. They aggressively crowd out our native trees and shrubs – a classic alien invasive species! Those widespread bush honeysuckles? Well, they don’t sprout thorns, probably the nicest thing a person could say about them.

Watercolors and Wine

But like many of the other invasives, they come out earlier in the spring, go dormant later in the fall, are disease and insect resistant, and out-compete the native shrubs, ground covers and wildflowers, spreading and growing fast and aggressively. Their bright red berries, a selling point for them as an ornamental planting early on, are attractive to many bird species, and get dispersed by them, far and wide, often for miles from the mother plant. They can grow in full sun and deep shade, in wet or dry locations, and are lining the roadsides all over the eastern United States except for arctic Maine and tropical Florida. They have been banned in Connecticut and Massachusetts (believed to attract deer and bring an increase in Lyme disease), labelled a “noxious weed” in Vermont, and are on Tennessee’s, and others’, invasive species list. These two bad actors are the ones that stand out at this time of the year, but there are many others. Think Japanese honeysuckle, Chinese privet, mimosas, kudzu, and the tree-strangling Oriental bittersweet. Garden escapees become serious invasives, too: winterberry, English ivy, burning bush, nandina. So, what to do besides wringing our hands and grumbling? Mostly, I would say, read up, be informed, remove exotics from your corner of the earth, and above all– shop wisely for whatever you plant and grow. The Tennessee Native Plant Society and the Tennessee Exotic Pest Plant Council both have websites with lots of useful information. In checking the web, I found nurseries that are still offering both Bradford Pears and bush honeysuckles for sale! Find a good, reputable plant nursery to do business with, and let them know that you’re aware of the problems with alien invasives and don’t want them on your place! Enjoy the native plants, try some you haven’t used before. Hooray for the redbuds, dogwoods, wild plums, serviceberries, sugar maples and black cherries, silverbells, witchhazels and sourwoods!

Mad Greek: International flavor with a down home vibe By Esther Roberts Two decades ago, Cyprus native Georgia Schnell opened the first “Mad Greek” restaurant in Bristol with a vision. “She wanted to offer folks a place where they can come and enjoy international cuisine and feel like they’re family.” So says Travis Blevins, general manager of the latest manifestation of Schnell’s vision, Travis Blevins the Mad Greek restaurant in East Knox County, just off I-40 at the Strawberry Plains exit. Entering the Mad Greek is like walking into a Greek family’s dining room, scaled up to accommodate lots of friends. The atmosphere is lively and welcoming. “Come in! Sit down!” Smiling faces abound, from the hostess to bartender Emily Bailey to the haute-cuisine-but-not-haughty head chef, Shaun Cayce. Indeed, one suspects weekends and game days may find guests and staff enjoying some impromptu Greek dancing. And that’s just fine. “We want everyone to feel like family when they’re here,” Blevins explains. “Come for a meal, come for a drink, sit and visit without feeling rushed – whatever each guest is seeking in a great dining experience, that’s what we want to provide.” “We especially want to make sure each guest enjoys the best food possible,” chef Cayce adds. “I and my staff create weekly specials so there’s always a new entrée to savor. Along with our signature Greek dishes, we also feature other international foods. Recently our weekend special was pork schnitzel on a pretzel bun with all the trimmings.” The restaurant features tables for large


groups as well as booths for more intimate dining. Al fresco dining is available on the patio. The bar sports a large-screen television and offers a full array of libations. Brightly colored pages from children’s coloring books have been taped along one wall. “We keep coloring books and crayons on hand for our youngest guests,” explains Blevins, “and we tape up their finShaun Cayce ished artwork so, next time they come to visit, they get to see it, just like they would at home. It’s fun to watch a child walk in and be excited to see their artwork on the wall. They feel validated, and I love that.” Blevins served as general manager of the Johnson City Mad Greek before coming to Knoxville to open the newest installment in this burgeoning chain. “We offer catering services, takeout service, and also many gluten-free, vegetarian and vegan menu items,” Blevins says. “We also believe in supporting our community.” Mad Greek participated in the “Dine Out for Education” initiative to support Knox County Schools. On April 4, 10 percent of all food sales was donated to local schools. Mad Greek may expand to other areas of Knoxville in the future, but, for now, if you want to enjoy some great international food in a festive atmosphere, Blevins and his colleagues will be happy to welcome you into the Mad Greek family. Mad Greek is at 750 Brakebill Road, just off I-40 at exit 398. Open weekdays 11 a.m.9 p.m.; weekends 11 a.m.-10 p.m. For takeout call 865-200-8486.

To participate in the Circle of Champions, students must maintain a minimum 3.0 GPA; enroll in at least one advanced placement, honors or dual enrollment class; and perform a certain number of hours of community service.

News from Emily McKinney/Keller-Williams

T & T Real Estate Investments, LLC: Quality comes first By Carol Z. Shane Walking through a recently renovated 1970s-era home with Travis McKinney and Tanner Davis, owner-operators of T & T Real Estate Investments, LLC, two things are immediately apparent: they have a passion for what they do, and unwavering dedication to providing firstrate design, materials and workmanship for the properties they rejuvenate. The single-story-with-basement structure boasts a living room with vaulted ceiling and clerestory windows. Spacious and light-filled, its open plan creates a feeling of flow, and its deep deck takes advantage of the beautiful woodland setting. McKinney continually points out upgrades and design choices that enhance the space. The neutral color palette features high-end materials such as granite, marble, wood flooring, subway tile and interior shiplap siding that blend into the whole, creating a welcoming atmosphere that’s integrated and sophisticated. No one thing shouts for attention or fights with another material, and the superior quality and workmanship is immediately evident upon walking through the front door. That’s the way McKinney and Davis like it. “The master bath has high-end tile, top of the line quartz, a frameless shower door and all modern high-end fixtures,” says McKinney. “And we didn’t have to put in this built-in double wall oven, but we’re glad we did. When you’re buying a house in this price range, you expect these kinds of things.” Friends since “just before ninth grade,” the two started T & T in Tennessee’s Tri-Cities area in 2008 and

brought the business to Knoxville in 2011. Having developed a valued network of contractors, they have a capable, dependable go-to crew. “We have floor guys, HVAC guys, plumbers. Our interior designer, Liza Dewald, is amazing. We’re so fortunate that she’s part of the T & T team. She plays a major role in the designs of these homes.” McKinney and Davis value relationships, and say that most of their highly successful business has been done by word of mouth. Specializing in high-end properties, they’ve rehabbed and sold 100 houses in East Tennessee so far. It helps that they started out as real estate appraisers; McKinney is statecertified. With their solid appraisal knowledge, they greatly understand value and know the types of upgrades that add value to homes. “We don’t try to ‘cheap out,’” says McKinney. “Our clients can be very exacting – they know what they want, and they know quality when they see it.” He gazes out of one of the house’s many windows to the verdant, early-spring landscape, visible from virtually every room. The home is in a neighborhood off Lyons Bend but, says Davis, “when the trees fill out, you won’t know there’s anyone else here.” “This is what we like to do,” says McKinney. “We like to transform.” You can find T & T Real Estate Investments, LLC, online on Facebook and Twitter.

Digging up bones:

Regulations are a good thing I heard from the cemetery woman again this week. This time she called me. Her English was better than my Spanish, but that didn’t get us anywhere, so she got my email address and sent me a bill. Best I can make out, if I don’t pay up, she’s going to dig up my grandmother. My grandmother, my Mamita, lived in San Juan, Puerto Rico. Her name was Luci Gonzales and she laughed a lot. She was deeply religious and was always making deals with God.

Betty Bean Once, when my mother had diphtheria and almost died, Mamita told God she’d beg money and give it to the church in exchange for her baby’s life. Mama got well, and Mamita hit the streets with a tin cup. At a time and in a place when educating women wasn’t a big priority,

she made sure her girls went to college. She saw ghosts in odd places, and once demanded to be moved to a different room in a Venezuelan hotel because there was a ghost under her bed. She sent me sparkly jewelry and big fancy dresses for my birthday and Christmas and Easter, and visited us in the winter because she loved to play in the snow (we’d go to the Smokies to find it). I loved her. She died in 1982, the year the World’s Fair came

done. But as time passed and money dwindled, I started culling them. Then a bill to town. My mother, who from the cemetery arrived. Turned out that she was brought Mamita to Knoxville to care for her when paying annual maintenance she got sick, took it hard, on Mamita’s grave. This one truly bumfuzand arranged to fly Mamita’s body home to the island zled me. I’d covered the long, so she could be buried in a sad story of Halls Memory pretty cemetery in Carolina, Gardens (now Fort Sumter Community Cemetery), just outside San Juan.

I followed tireless and political causes she sup- crusader Bobbie Woodall ported. At first, I paid them around, and she educated all, just as she would have me about Tennessee laws

regulating cemeteries. Like every other state, we have mandatory trust funds set up for perpetual care. That’s part of the built-in cost of buying a cemetery plot. Not so in Puerto Rico, where problems are compounded by an economic crisis that has bankrupted the island. There are no laws requiring up-front payment of perpetual care. I’ve been paying the annual fee because that’s what Mama did. But let’s face it. None of us are here forever. I’ll think about this the next time I hear a rant about government regulations.

Roane lawmaker could become lone ET voice on TVA board Another name being mentioned for the TVA board of directors is state Sen. Ken Yager from neighboring Roane County, who chairs the legislature’s Fiscal Review Committee. He is a former county mayor and would be an interesting choice given the massive TVA spill several years ago in Roane County. However, if nominated and confirmed he would have to resign his state Senate seat to serve. He cannot do both at the same time. At present, there is no one from East Tennessee serving on the TVA board for the first time in recent memory. It appears TVA has caved on the citizens’ lawsuit over the program for treecutting under power lines. This lawsuit has been twice to the federal court of appeals under attorney Don Vowell’s direction, where his arguments have prevailed. TVA attorneys are finally acknowledging they

have not complied with all aspects of the law. ■■ The death of former state Sen. Doug Henry marks the end of an era. He was a true Southern Democrat from the old school. He served 40 years in the state Senate. He truly believed that the two U.S. senators from each state were ambassadors to the U.S. Capitol as we are a union of 50 sovereign states. He chaired the Senate Finance Committee for many years. He and the late speaker John Wilder were close allies. When the Senate Democrats dropped Wilder, Henry joined the Republicans to keep Wilder in office. When the Democrats

dropped Bill Snodgrass as comptroller for Floyd Kephart in 1972, Henry and a few other Democrats sided with the Re- Joe Bailey publicans to keep Snodgrass in office. Henry’s integrity was unquestioned. His devotion to Tennessee history was remarkable. ■■ Former vice mayor Joe Bailey, 59, says several people have urged him to look at running for Knoxville mayor in 2019, and he plans on doing just that. Interestingly, one other person seriously eyeing the mayor’s office lives almost directly across the street from Bailey on Kingston Pike. This is Eddie Mannis, 58, former deputy to Mayor Madeline Rogero. Bailey served eight years on council. The two other potential candidates now are council

Lamar offers help on health insurance U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander has drafted a plan to help Tennessee residents who lack options on health care. Sen. Bob Corker joined Alexander to sponsor the legislation. Alexander said 34,000 Knoxville area residents rely on an Affordable Care Act subsidy to purchase health insurance. Currently, he said, they will have “zero options on the exchanges for the 2018 plan year. After the one remaining insurer pulled out of the exchange for 2018, these subsidies are

worth as much as bus tickets in a town with no buses running. There is also a real prospect that all 230,000 Tennesseans who buy insurance on the exchange – approximately 195,000 with a subsidy – won’t have any plans to buy next year either.” Alexander’s bill would allow those in Knoxville and across the country who receive a subsidy and have no option next year to use that subsidy to buy any state-approved individual insurance plan off the exchange.

To help someone else

Clinical trials participant hopes to help future cancer patients During a breast self-exam, Wanda Blackburn detected a lump. She wasn’t shocked or afraid, her heart didn’t skip a beat and she didn’t cry. There was no strong family history of breast cancer and Blackburn felt OK. She went on about her life without giving it much thought until she realized that the lump was growing. “I knew something was wrong,” Blackburn says. After a mammogram confirmed that the lump had grown to five centimeters in size, Blackburn called her doctor. When asked where she would like to go for follow-up, Blackburn remembered that a family member had recently received excellent treatment at Thompson Cancer Survival Center. At Thompson, leading cancer specialists use the most advanced technolo-

Prevention and Early Detection is Key American Cancer Socitey (ACS) Guidelines for the Early Detection of Cancer: • Women should have yearly mammograms and clinical breast exams starting at age 40. • Women in their 20s and 30s should have a clinical breast exam every three years. • Women in their 20s should start performing breast self exams.

Know Your Risk Learn about your family health history & talk to your health care provider about your personal risk of breast cancer.

By participating in clinical trials at Thompson Cancer Survival Center, Wanda Blackburn not only treated her illness, but helped others by contributing to the future of cancer care.

team at Thompson Cancer Survival Center for their professional and compassionate care. She wants to use her story to help other women. “If I hadn’t waited as long as I did, the lump in my breast wouldn’t have gotten as big as it did, and it wouldn’t have gotten into my lymph nodes,” Blackburn says. “If you find a lump in your breast, definitely go and get it checked out.”

Clinical Trials: Research for the future of cancer treatment At Thompson Cancer Survival Center, oncologists and the clinical trials department work together to find suitable trials that could benefit patients here in East Tennessee. Clinical trials manager Jennifer England says patients are sometimes recommended by doctors and sometimes selected from research of medical files. “We then meet with eligible patients to discuss the trial,” England says. “This often takes place in the exam room on the day of an appointment with the doctor, but sometimes we will call them at home and schedule them to come and meet with us.” Patients are given ample information about the process, and an opportunity to ask questions. “A very important aspect of this meeting is reiterating that participation is completely voluntary,” England says. “We describe what will be required

of them, and if we know what the possible treatment is, we will discuss side effects.” When the patient decides to participate, the clinical trials nurse and the doctor have to perform an assessment within a month to verify eligibility. The process may include blood work, heart tests, and various medical scans. While the patient is undergoing treatment, a nurse coordinates all appointments, including any required blood work, follow-up scans and doctor visits. The coordinating nurse attends every appointment with the patient, and asks a series of questions about physical and mental well-being to help determine whether the medication has more, fewer or the same side effects as traditional treatment. Sometimes patients are asked to fill out questionnaires about their day-to-day lives and how they are feel-

ing, and those questionnaires are submitted to the study. The process is clinical and scientific, but it’s also personal. “Sometimes we may see a patient once or twice a month for years,” England says. “One of the best parts about clinical trials nursing is the bond we form with our patients and being able to offer them the service of their very own nurse, who is only a phone call away during their cancer treatment.” Whether a patient gets the trial treatment or the standard treatment, participation in these clinical trials helps bring a complete cure for cancer a little closer to reality. “Participating in a clinical trial can not only provide access to cutting edge cancer therapies, it also directly impacts the future of cancer care,” England says.
