FIRST WORDS Homey stay or animal house next door? By Nick Della Volpe The hot zoning topic these days is about the potential benefits and problems of Short Term Rentals (STR), more commonly referred to as AirBNBs. These include stays at a residence for a Della Volpe short weekend up to a 30-day rental. To judge by comments at the city’s April 4 neighborhood meeting to discuss the draft regulations, this is all the rage among new homesteaders interested in owning and rehabbing older neighborhood homes for such business. They argue that short-term rentals can help raise funds needed for the rehab, or to support a more leisurely lifestyle in semi-retirement. Tough questions need to be explored before Knoxville will have answers and a workable set of STR regulations. First among them is: What will this do to established single-family neighborhoods? Will this introduce a business element into bedroom communities, where residents count on quiet streets and the welcome nosiness of neighbors to keep tabs on strangers in the area and the potential for criminal activity brewing down the block? Does such commercial conduct portend the gradual breakdown of traditional zoning that separates business activity from residential – sort of mixed-use activity gone riot? Administration officials conducting the meeting also expressed concern that STR conversions may exacerbate the shortage of affordable longterm rental housing. The issues are more than theoretical. According to Deputy Mayor Bill Lyons and Codes Director Peter Ahrens, there are already over 200 AirBNBs operating in Knoxville ... an illegal use in single-family residential districts. Like Uber in the taxi/ride-share world, this idea is spreading. The administration is proposing a permit system to add a modicum of control to the present laissez-faire situation. The proposal currently requires homeowners to live in the home they are attempting to rent on a short-term basis (Type 1 permit). They would apply for a permit, pay a modest $70 fee, collect hotel and sales taxes, and be responsible to have someone on call within To page A-2

Three selected for Halls Hall of Fame Induction, special centennial dinner is April 29
By Jake Mabe Scientist/scholar Randall “Randy” Mynatt, architect Greg Rutledge and retired Knox County Schools vocational teacher and wrestling pioneer Chris Vandergriff have been selected to be the 2017 inductees into the Halls High School Alumni Hall of Fame. The trio will be inducted as part of special concluding events for the Halls Schools Centennial at the annual alumni banquet Saturday, April 29, at Halls High School. Dr. Randall “Randy” Mynatt has spent more than 20 years researching obesity and diabetes. He graduated from Halls High in 1980 and earned a bachelor’s degree in cellular biology/
biochemistry in 1985, a master’s degree in nutrition sciences/biochemistry in 1989 and a doctorate in nutrition sciences/biochemistry in 1991, all from the University of Tennessee. Mynatt has worked at UT-Memphis, the Oak Ridge National Lab and Louisiana State University in Baton Rouge, La., where he currently holds the Douglas L. Manship Sr. Endowed Professorship in Diabetes and is Director of Transgenics at Pennington Biomedical Research Center. Greg Rutledge is an architect and principal at Hanbury Evans Wright Vlattas + Company, which bills itself as “a leader in historic preservation.” Graduating from Halls High in 1977, Rutledge
earned a bachelor’s degree from UT in 1984. He has won a number of personal and project awards in historic preservation. Recent project awards include the Design Honor Award for Preservation: AIA Hampton Roads (Va.), Freemason Baptist Church renovation and addition in 2011, and the Mayor’s Civic Improvement Award for the city of Hampton, Va.’s American Theatre in 2010. Chris Vandergriff coached and taught at Halls High School for 31 years before retiring in 2012. A 1977 Halls High graduate, he was the school’s first Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association (TSSAA) state wrestling champion in 1976 and a repeat
state champion in 1977. He was captain of the 1976 Halls High football team and was a four-year wrestling letterman at UT. After returning to teach at Halls High in 1981, Vandergriff helped pioneer wrestling as a high school sport at Halls High, in Knox County Schools and throughout East Tennessee youth athletics. He coached three TSSAA state champions – Shannon Sayne (1996 and 1998), Cody Humphrey (2002) and son John Vandergriff (2006). He was inducted into the Tennessee chapter of the National Wrestling Hall of Fame in 2007 and is an active member of the Halls Alumni Association. To page A-2

Family’s loss becomes a cause
By Betsy Pickle
Elizabeth Psar’s daughter, Julia, has been gone almost a year, but her short life is still an inspiration. “I have derived strength from her,” says Psar, a child-advocacy lawyer whose career and personal life are primarily focused on helping children. Psar and her husband, Rado, had a “perfect” life until December 2015, when their 2½ -year-old daughter, Julia Barbara, suddenly started having balance problems. “I thought she had an inner-ear infection,” says the attorney. “It never occurred to me that she had a brain tumor.” Psar was at Juvenile Court when her husband took their daughter to the pediatrician. She remembers thinking that Julia would have to have tubes put in her ears. “That was going to be the worst thing that we were going to have to do,” she says. “That was that Monday morning, and by the evening
they’re saying she has a brainstem tumor. And then the next day they’re saying she’s going to die.” The Psars learned that their little girl had DIPG – Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma – a brainstem tumor that is inoperable and incurable. The tumor usually strikes between the ages of 5 and 7, but it can be found in younger children and teenagers. The Psar family, including son Vasil William, now 5, went to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital just before Christmas 2015 to have a port put in for the medications she would have to have. They returned home for the holiday because the doctor said that it would probably be Julia’s last Christmas. The four returned to St. Jude in January 2016. Julia had to endure a grueling regimen of radiation, chemotherapy and experimental drugs. Steroids were part of her treatment and, Psar says, had a horrific effect. Julia bore it all
bravely, but: “She just never smiled anymore, and she was a child who smiled all the time. The steroids just altered her so dramatically.” There were times when Julia seemed slightly better. But during a Make-a-Wish trip to Slovakia to visit Rado’s family, she started experiencing nausea again. Julia died in her sleep on May 17, 2016, exactly one month short of her third birthday. A few months later, Elizabeth and Rado started the Julia Barbara Foundation to raise awareness of DIPG and raise funds for research. Last month, state Sen. Doug Overbey of Maryville and state Rep. Jason Zachary of Knoxville sponsored a resolution to make May 17 DIPG Awareness Day in Tennessee. The Julia Barbara Foundation is hosting a Gala Celebrating DIPG Children at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 20, at the Women’s Basketball
Hall of Fame, 700 Hall of Fame Drive. Tickets, $60, are available on eventbrite.com. The Chillbillies, whose lineup includes Juvenile Court Judge Tim Irwin, will perform. Psar says the entire Juvenile Court team has been very supportive of her family and the foundation. It’s appropriate that the event is taking place at the Hall of Fame. One of the most high-profile DIPG victims is the late college basketball player Lauren Hill, who was inducted into the hall. Hill passed away in April 2015, but her foundation has raised millions for DIPG research and awareness. Psar says the incidence of DIPG is low – about 400 children are living with the diagnosis right now – but “that doesn’t include the children that die from it that nobody catches. It’s a very invasive tumor. It’s like a weed in your garden – it grows so quickly.” To page A-2 2704 Mineral Springs Ave. Knoxville, TN 37917 Ph. (865) 687-4537

CHS students Also, says Reynolds, “we can teach the kids English; we can’t teach their parents English.” Parental involvement and support is crucial, and many of the parents don’t understand the value of education in securing higher-paying jobs after graduation. They need to be brought into the dialogue. Then too, there’s the current volatile, sometimes hostile national dialogue concerning immigrants. Some people just want them to go away. But with so many fleeing intolerable situations in their own homelands, that’s not likely to happen. The solution for everyone, says Turner, is inclusion. “When you exclude a growing population, the kids become hopeless and disenfranchised. And that’s where gangs come in – they offer a sense of belonging.

money for the position ran out. Other options, such as bringing in one of the CHS language teachers to translate, say, for a parent-teacher conference, hobbles the system and deprives others of scheduled class time. And the translator for the district has 89 schools to serve.
An ‘us versus them’ mentality takes root.” Reynolds, Turner, Ramsey and their colleagues at CHS want do everything in their power to give these students a chance to live up to their potential and become productive citizens. And the thing that would help them most right now, in every situation where language poses a barrier, is an on-site, on-call, dedicated school translator. Up until last October, they had one.

45 minutes to address complaints. Type 2 permits (no owner presence required) would be available in nonresidential zones. STRs are different from long-term rentals, which bring new residents into the community. By definition, STRs bring strangers next door. Often these rentals are for weekend stays, especially during football season and festival days. Tourists and friends get to stay in a
home-like setting. A nightmare vision, however, might include a half-dozen twenty-something guys drinking beer on the back porch ’til 2 a.m. amid loud talk and music ... a college dorm redux.

or motel lobby. In its best form, an AirBNB might introduce newcomers to the hospitality of Knoxville, possibly acting as an informal recruiting service for our hometown. My guess is it will produce both types of scenarios. How equipped is our city codes group to enforce reasonable rules scattered around the town? At the April 4 meeting, some pro-STR renters argued they should not be limited to one owner- occupied home (under a Type 1 permit). Some already owned or were contemplating buying several homes to use as AirBNBs. “I’m semi-retired and want the added income
...” (note: a Type 2 permit does not require owner occupation.) The bigger question is: when does an occasional short-term rental become a full blown hotel business, operating in your singlefamily neighborhood? When does the “operator’s” claim to property rights clash with the neighbors’ right to quiet enjoyment of their home? These are open questions. The city law department is revising the draft rules aired in April. MPC will tackle the proposal in May, followed by City Council review in June. Neighborhoods need to stay involved to help balance and shape the proposal.

The Lamb who lives The next day John [the Baptist] again was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, “Look, here is the Lamb of God!” (John 1: 35-36 NRSV) The Easter story never gets old. It is as amazing and startling and breathtaking today as when the stone was first rolled away from the tomb. Christians the world over rejoice again, celebrate anew, proclaim with wonder, “He is alive!” This season is the most joyous and celebrative season of the Christian year. Even the readings that take us through the weeks between Easter and Pentecost are taken from the Acts of the Apostles rather than the Old Testament, because the early church, empowered by the Holy Spirit, is the best witness to the Resurrection. There are those who say that when Christmas is over, it is really over, because of the let-down from celebration, as well as the cleaning and putting away of decorations and carol books and the temptations of finishing off the Christmas cookies. (I know who you are!) But the Resurrection of Jesus is a whole ’nother

thing. Even the resurrection of Lazarus was only a temporary reprieve. Jesus, however, was resurrected to live forever! We can’t explain it. We can only believe it. The disciples (that bunch of craven cowards who deserted Jesus when the going got tough) rallied eventually (except, of course, Judas, who repented by committing suicide) and went all over most of the (then) known world telling the amazing story.

dip experienced in February. In March, about $300 million was loaned against real estate in Knox County, up from $221 million in February, and about $9 million above March 2016 levels. The largest real estate sale of the month was a purchase by Lincoln Memorial University of the Pellissippi Office Center on Cogdill Road. The complex sold for $7.5 million. The largest mortgage loan filed was a Deed of Trust in the amount of $6.42 million financing property at the intersection of Chapman Highway and Woodlawn Pike known as Chapman Commons. Analysis of the first quarter’s data indicates that 2017 is running moderately ahead of 2016 in both real estate sales and mortgage lending. As of March 31, around $624 million worth of property has been sold in Knox County, compared to $530 million during the first quarter of 2016. Mortgage lending is also outpacing last year’s first-quarter activity, with approximately $837 million loaned so far this year, compared with $791 million last year.

Virginia Mulrooney, Mrs. Tennessee America, stopped by Commercial Bank last week and helped out with a fundraising project. The bank hosted a jelly bean counting contest, where guests paid $1 for Relay for Life and were able to guess the number of jelly beans in a jar. Four prizes – a picnic basket, stuffed rabbit, stuffed duck and plaques – were given out to the four guesses closest to the total. Mulrooney is a member of the community and of Commercial Bank, so when asked to participate, she was more than happy to assist. As Mrs. Tennessee America, Mulrooney will compete at
the Mrs. America pageant in Las Vegas in August. Her platform is raising awareness to lupus. In 2006, after the birth of her seventh child, she received a diagnosis of lupus, which left her bedridden for four years. As she worked her way out of bed, to using a wheelchair and later a cane, Mulrooney knew that she needed to do something to bring her out of the valley.

Breakfast Rotary’s annual wildflower sale Is April 29 By Tom King Rotarians in Knoxville do a lot of things … things like working to eradicate polio, reading to kids at schools, prov iding new library Tom King books for elementary schools, working alongside The News Sentinel at Free Flu Shot Saturday, supporting the Cerebral Palsy Center’s group home, delivering meals to seniors, and backing the important work done by many nonprofit organizations. One of our clubs – the Knoxville Breakfast Rotary Club – sells wildflowers to raise money for the community projects it supports. If you are needing a few new wildflowers for your yard or home, the Breakfast Rotarians are about to have their popular major fundraiser – its 25th Annual Wildflower Sale. It will be on Saturday, April 29, from 8 a.m. to 3 p.m. at the Rocky Hill Shopping Center on Northshore Drive at Morrell Road. The club will have spring flowers ready to plant, and

The real Andy Holt Maybe the early Seventies weren’t the best of times to be a student at the University of Tennessee, but anybody with a functioning brain knew that the rattiest booth at the Roman Room was infinitely preferable to the accommodations at Fort Polk, Louisiana – AKA Fort Puke, next stop Vietnam. Protesters and selfproclaimed freaks faced off against YAFFers (Young Americans for Freedom) and the specter of war shadowed us everywhere. Nevertheless, lots of students liked Andy Holt, even though many weren’t crazy about some of the UT president’s old-school, paternalistic ways, particularly the time he invited Billy Graham to preach in Neyland Stadium and bring noted theologian Richard Nixon along, too. A World War II veteran born in 1904 (which means
Betty Bean he enlisted even though he was well past draft age), he’d lived through two world wars and had a different perspective on life than did most Boomers. There were things about him that gave conservatives the willies, too. He’d been executive director of the Tennessee Education Association, president of the National Education Association and had chaired the U.S. Delegation to the World Organization of the Teaching Profession in Switzerland. Think that resume would get anybody appointed UT president nowadays? The Real Andy Holt advocated ending segregation and
defended one of my old history professors who came under fire for his association with the Highlander Center, which also entertained Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks. Later, students walking along Cumberland Avenue waved at him when he’d come chugging by in the orange Volkswagen UT alumni gave him when he retired (his wife got a white Mercedes). Often as not he’d stop and give somebody a lift to class. Storied acts of kindness too habitual to be random circulated widely. In those days, the president of Real Andy Holt Photo courtesy of UT was the the University of Tennessee
most popular person in Knoxville, probably in the state. Imagine that. So when a West Tennessee pig farmer/state legislator named Andy Holt started
Four new state senators? Possibly When state Sen. Mark Green is confirmed as the new Secretary of the Army (probably this summer) he must resign his state Senate seat, which triggers a special election to fill it until his term ends in 2020. Montgomery County Commission will appoint an interim senator for four months. State Sen. Mark Norris, current majority leader, is widely mentioned as a new federal judge in Memphis, which would remove him from the governor’s race. He is 62 – older than what the Trump administration is looking for in new federal judges – but he has influential backers and could be tapped. State Sen. Doug Overbey, 62, who had been mentioned as a candidate for gov-
ernor, appears to have shifted his interest to the U.S. attorney position here in East Tennessee, while Jeff Hagood, who had previously expressed interest, appears to have considered the cut in pay he would incur if he were appointed. He may be interested in a position on the TVA board, which has three openings at present and two more in 2018. Should state Sen. Ken Yager be appointed to the TVA board, there is unsettled opinion on whether he can hold both offices. Yager
seems committed to staying in the state Senate if forced to make a choice. All are very able senators who have made their mark. So it is possible that there are four Senate vacancies this year (clearly one) triggering four special elections for the Senate and four new Senators by 2018. This comes on top of the November 2016 statewide election, in which there was only one change in the Senate. The only sure election will be for the Green seat once he is confirmed. House Speaker Beth Harwell is giving Gov. Bill Haslam fits over the gas tax with her endorsement of an alternative that does not raise taxes. She has decided that Haslam will not back her for governor next year

and she should move to the right to win enough backing to win a four-way primary contest. Also complicating the issue are the outnumbered Democrats who will decide whether this passes the House or not, since GOP members are badly split. If 20 Democrats withhold their votes, the gas tax hike will fail in the House. The Democrats will have a shopping list they want satisfied before they vote for the tax hike. Local state Rep. Rick Staples recently voted not to send the bill to the House floor. ■■ Federal district Judge Tom Varlan, who is chief judge, had a full house on April 7 when his portrait was unveiled.

Knox County At-Large Commissioners Ed Brantley and Bob Thomas will host their next Ed & Bob Night Out in Knox County 5-7 p.m. Thursday, April 20, at Chandler’s Deli, 3101 Magnolia Ave. They plan to meet with the people of east Knox County and listen to their concerns. Ed and Bob feel that going out to the citizens eases the strain on those who, because of work, commitments, financial situation or the distance to the City-County Building, cannot attend regular commission meetings. All elected officials, media and public are welcome.

HealtH & lifestyles News From Fort saNders regioNal medical ceNter
Subtle signs, safe hands There was nothing unusual about that Wednesday in March. It was a typical workday for Karen Russell. There was no indication that anything extraordinary was about to happen, and certainly no indication that she was about to have a stroke. Russell, 62, processes data at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, with the end goal of using the results to ensure quality care and patient safety. As she wrapped up her duties at the end of her day, she had no idea that she would soon be on the receiving end of that quality care. On the drive home from work that Wednesday in March, Russell began to experience numbness in her mouth. The possibility of a stroke never entered her mind, and her first thought was that it must have been the result of something she ate. “I thought I was having an allergic reaction, Russell says. “It was so subtle I could explain it away.” Later in the evening she fell asleep in the recliner, and woke to discover her arm and hand had gone numb. “You know how sometimes your hand and arm will get numb while you’re asleep,” Russell says. “I just decided that’s what it was, and so I explained it away, again.” It wasn’t until early the next
morning in the shower that Russell began to realize something could be so wrong that it would require medical attention. “It dawned on me that I couldn’t feel anything on my right side,” Russell says. “I couldn’t feel my toes, my leg was numb, and I decided I might b e
having a stroke.” She informed her husband that she was going to stop by the emergency department at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center on her way to the office. Her husband wisely insisted that he take the wheel. Russell also called her boss to explain what was going on. “I might be a little late,” Russell told her, “ I
“This is not only my choice of employment,” Karen Russell says. “This is my choice of health care, too.”
Stroke When it comes to stroke, time lost is brain lost, so it’s important to understand the warning signs of stroke and how to reduce your risk. If you or a loved one experience any of these symptoms, call 911.
Sudden severe headache with no known cause Sudden confusion, trouble speaking or understanding Sudden trouble walking, dizziness, loss of balance or coordination Sudden numbness or weakness, especially on one side of the body Sudden trouble seeing in one or both eyes All nine Covenant Health hospitals are part of our stroke network, so when seconds count, you can trust that our elite teams can provide the comprehensive stroke care you need.

have to run by the ED (emergency department) and make sure I’m not having a stroke.” At the time she was half joking, but the minute she came into the emergency department and explained she was there because of stroke symptoms, things got serious, and the team went into action. “As soon as I said it, there was a wheelchair behind me, and then everything happened so fast,” Russell says. “I just put myself in their hands, and I felt safe.” She was asked many questions, and while she never lost her ability to speak, it frightened her that she wasn’t able to answer the doctor correctly when he asked her what month it was. “I ought to be able to remember March,” Russell says, “because that’s my birthday month.” Screenings and tests were conducted, revealing high blood pressure and evidence of a stroke. It had been 16 hours since Russell’s first symptoms, so she had already passed the window for standard emergency stroke treatment. But in the limited period of time she was there, Russell felt well informed and completely cared for as a stroke patient. “They told me what it was, where it was, and I had a plan of care,” Rus-
sell says. That plan of care got Russell on the road to recovery, and she was able to return to work the following Monday, in the place where she says she’s most happy in life. “This is my hospital, and I love it,” Russell says. “I’ve been here 33 years, and I feel like I own part of it.” Russell laughs when she shares her grandchildren’s response to her treatment at Fort Sanders Regional. “They said, ‘Gosh, Mamaw, that place is the bomb diggity!’” Russell says. She is inclined to agree. “This is not only my choice of employment,” Russell says, “this is my choice of health care, too.” Fort Sanders Regional has been certified as a Comprehensive Stroke Center by The Joint Commission and the American Heart/ Stroke Association, the largest independent health care evaluation system in the nation. The certification recognizes hospitals that meet high standards in treating the most complex stroke cases with advanced imaging, personnel trained in vascular neurology, neurosurgery and endovascular procedures, availability of personnel and facilities around the clock, and both experience and expertise treating stroke patients. To learn more about Fort Sanders Regional’s certification as a Comprehensive Stroke Center, signs of a stroke, and an online checklist to find out your level of stroke risk, visit www. fsregional.com/stroke.
The first Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center in East Tennessee Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center serves as the hub of Covenant Health’s stroke hospital network, and offers advanced care and rehabilitation services to patients who experience a stroke. Fort Sanders Regional was the first in the Knoxville area to earn an Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Center Certification by The Joint Commission, a nonprofit organization that accredits and certifies more than 20,500 health care programs in the United States. This “gold-seal” advanced certification means that Fort Sanders is recognized as having the most advanced and effective treatments available for stroke today. Certification through The Joint Commission involves extensive training for the staff, documentation of effectiveness and inspection of the hospital by The Joint Commission. Part of certification is having a team of “neurohospitalists” on staff. These physicians treat only stroke and neurological cases in the hospital, 24 hours a day, 7 days per week. Instead of waiting for a doctor to have time from his or her private practice, Fort Sanders Re-
gional has neurologists on hand. “It makes access to specialized neurologists easier,” said James Hora, MD, one of the neurohospitalists at Fort Sanders. “We have 24/7 coverage, and this provides rapid access to a neurologist for acute neurologic problems.” Arthur Moore, MD, was hired in July 2014 as medical director for the center. “With our Advanced Comprehensive Stroke Certification, we offer the highest level of care for all patients. Whether they’re able to have surgery or not, we’re there to give their bodies the
best chance to heal and recover,” he explained. Most stroke patients need followup care after the initial event, and patients at Fort Sanders have access to the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center, an award winning rehabilitation center. About one-third of the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center’s patients are stroke patients, according to the center’s medical director, Mary E. Dillon, MD. “Our specialists begin determining as soon as possible what level of care the patient will need,” said Dillon. “Patients have access
to rehab services from the time they arrive in the emergency department, throughout their care here and through all the postacute levels of care.” Having everything – speedy emergency care, advanced surgical techniques and the best in rehabilitation – makes Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center the smart choice for stroke care. “We’re equipped to handle all stroke cases, from the most complex to the least,” said Dillon. “Our patients don’t have to go anywhere else to find help.”

No comprehensive stroke and rehabilitation center in our region does more to reverse stroke’s devastating effects than Fort Sanders Regional Medical Fort Sanders performs Center. That’s why hospitals clinical trials and procedures for stroke not available across East Tennessee refer their most complex stroke patients to anywhere else in our region. us. And only Fort Sanders Regional is home to the Patricia Neal Rehabilitation Center, East Tennessee’s elite rehabilitation hospital for stroke, spinal cord and brain injury patients.

Angela Floyd received a big “thank you” hug from Luttrell Elementary teacher Cheryl Bowman. Thanks to Cash for Classrooms, Bowman was able to purchase a color printer and toner cartridges for her classroom.
Shopper news is proud to co-sponsor the 2017 Cash for Classrooms with the help of the Great Schools Partnership. Thanks to our sponsors, we put $5,000 directly into classrooms ($250 each to 20 classes). And we helped Angela Floyd celebrate 20 years in business.
