Junior Vol Training (ages 10-12) is Thursday, May 25, from 5-7 p.m. Lesson Vol Training (ages 13+) is Saturday, June 3, from 9 a.m.-1 p.m. Horse experience is not necessary, closed toed shoes are a must.

Dobbs spoke briefly with the group, reminding them of the importance of taking pride in their education, continuing to learn over the summer and surrounding themselves with good friends. After the assembly, he posed for photos with each class at the school, putting smiles on the faces of many students and staff members. Before Dobbs stepped on stage, principal Holt informed the group that the school was named an Imagine Nation World-Class School for 2015-2016. They were in the top 40 schools out of thousands across the nation. With that good news and the ending of testing for thirdthrough fifth-graders, Holt and assistant Renee Rupeka broke out in a dance party with each grade to get the assembly started.

Senior baseball players at Halls were recognized in front of the home crowd last week before the final regular season home game. Pictured are Bryson Brantley, Sam Beeler, Matthew Brooks, Bryce Hodge, Cooper Sparks and manager Tyler Polston.

By Ruth White Fountain City Elementary invited former UT quarterback Josh Dobbs to read to students during Dr. Seuss Month in March. Dobbs’ schedule wouldn’t allow for the visit but he kept the school that is tucked away in the heart of Fountain City on his mind. “Josh hated that he missed reading to the students and called us to see if he could stop by before he leaves to begin his career with the Pittsburgh Steelers,” said principal Tina Holt. She was touched that Dobbs didn’t forget the school and wanted to come out and see the students.

UT professor is firsttime Carnegie winner For the first time, a University of Tennessee, Knoxville, professor has received a major Carnegie fellowship. Nicknamed “the brainy award,” the fellowship is one of the most prestigious awards for scholars in the social sciences and humanities. Nathan J. Kelly, associate professor of political science, has been named a 2017 Andrew Carnegie Research Fellow. The recognition comes for his work studying how economic inequality reinforces itself through politics. Kelly is one of 35 scholars nationwide who will receive up to $200,000 from the Carnegie Corporation of New York to complete a book or major study. Kelly will use the award to complete his book, “America’s Inequality Trap.” Kelly’s research shows that rising economic inequality reduces the prospect of major reforms and policy changes within U.S. political institutions. Economic inequality reinforces itself through politics, public opinion, elections, policy stagnation and policy making. Kelly was chosen out of a pool of 200 proposals from Carnegie candidates.

News from EyeXcel

Dr. Carusone provides pediatric and sports care, vision therapy By Kelly Norrell Dr. Frank Carusone, EyeXcel’s newest partner, provides a fresh perspective on general eye care plus excellent specialty care in his areas of passion: pediatric care, sports vision and vision rehabilitation. An honors graduate of both Kent State University and Southern College of Optometry, Dr. Carusone is excited about the role of optometry in today’s healthcare landscape. Dr. Carusone’s career as an eye care specialist began with his own family optometrist back in northeast Ohio. “I looked forward to every appointment. He was friendly and took time to get to know me and my family,” Dr. Carusone said. “I was nearsighted as a child and never realized it. When he fitted me for glasses as a teenager, I saw things I’d never seen. Later, he got me into my first pair of contact lenses.” Dr. Carusone

said the relationship sparked his own interest in vision and eyes. “I always had a passion and curiosity about how the body works.” Today, Dr. Carusone is at home in the family optometrist’s role. “Optometry is moving more into the medical space that allows us to treat and manage a number of eye health conditions. With the changing landscape of health care, we are always looking to the most effective way to treat patients and obtain an ideal outcome. Often, that means going to your family optometrist rather than to an eye surgeon.” In any given day, Dr. Carusone may be providing routine eye care such as fitting glasses and contact lenses. Or, he may be performing specialty care such as pediatric vision. “A child’s vision guides the rest of their development. If they have a problem that makes their vision blurry,

they may not be able to see their parents’ mouths moving and learn how to form words. If they are not able to see colors and shapes, they are missing the basic building blocks of development,” he said. Simple glasses and, when a child is older, contact lenses, correct many problems. But Dr. Carusone makes use of other methods of vision therapy to train the eye and brain to work together that are not commonly offered elsewhere. The partners of EyeXcel feel so strongly about the importance of early eye care that the practice now offers free, comprehensive eye exams for babies between six and 12 months of age. Parents can call the office at 865-6871232 to make an appointment. Dr. Carusone’s specialty in sports vision helps sharpen athletes’ visual skills through focused therapy. “We work with skills like peripheral awareness, depth perception, visual reaction time and eye-hand or eye-foot coordination. Developing these skills to a high level can separate the average athlete from a more elite athlete,” Dr. Carusone said. “Right now, we are developing the sports vision program. Often if the child is already here for general vision care, we can incorporate sports based therapy to make it more engaging as well as develop skills they are using in athletic events,” he said.

His uses of vision therapy and vision rehabilitation techniques are often life changing. “Vision therapy can help children with lazy eye or who have an eye tracking problem. We are also able to rehabilitate or remediate vision problems that result from disease, a stroke, traumatic brain injuries or concussions. Severe vision problems can result from these events. Rehabilitating these problems can have a life-changing impact on a person’s recovery,” he said. Dr. Carusone, his wife, Mallory, who is a kindergarten teacher at Ball Camp Elementary, and their dog, Ellie, love Knoxville. “I am excited about EyeXcel. We look forward to expanding our ability to care for more patients in this area in order to meet the needs of those in our community,” he said.

Dreams do come true By Ruth White

Thanks to Elmcroft Assisted Living, dreams do come true. Well, Second Wind dreams that is. Ginny Sheddan was the most recent recipient of a Second Wind Dream and was given the opportunity to relive an important time in her life. Sheddan loved to golf, and back in the early 1960s she would go to Beaver Brook Country Club with her friends for a round of golf. It was during one of those outings that Sheddan caught the eye of club manager Ernie Pyles. He wooed her and eventually won her hand in marriage in 1965. Being on the course brought back fond memories for Ginny (who will turn 91 on May 17) and she was able to relive more memories as club members Dale Rutherford and Danny Gaylor stopped by the green to reminisce with her. After her time on the green, Ginny enjoyed lunch on the patio of the club with members of a women’s league group. Ginny Sheddan sinks a putt in one stroke on the green at Beaver Brook Country Club as part of her Second Wind Dream, thanks to Elmcroft Assisted Living. Photo by Ruth White

The ultimate Transformer Humans are obsessed with change. The concept of one object or person transforming into something radically different is a fascinating one. I think it’s the reason why as a kid I was so fascinated by toys like Transformers because there was just something about seeing a little car turn into a giant fighting robot that seemed really cool. In the same way, I think that’s why many people enjoy makeover television shows because the person the audience meets at the beginning of the program is not the same one we see an hour later, at least not on the outside. Perhaps we’re drawn to things that change because in reality it seems that we have accepted the fact that most people or things just stay the same. I dare to say that many of us probably don’t believe that real change is even possible. People are who they are and that’s it. But that’s not the way God sees it. One of the beautiful

things I love about the Lord is the fact that anyone that comes into contact with God can’t leave that encounter the same way that he came. God by His very nature is transformative, and He desires so much for His children that He refuses to allow us to remain the same. He wants to mold us, shape us, polish us and use us. And not just for His glory but also because it blesses us in the process. I am so thankful that I’m not the same person I was when God captured my heart in a very real way as a freshman at the University of Tennessee in the fall of 2007. And I’m also grateful I’m not the same person I was last week. The change that occurs in your life as a follower of Jesus is continual, thorough, and even hard

at times, but always worthwhile. So I invite you to reflect on the ways you have changed in the past few years, whether they be good or bad. What were the lessons the Lord taught you to shape you into a person who looks more like Him? Or what were the hard things you tried to avoid that left you hurting and disappointed? Just think about what He may be calling you to deal with now. I find it to be a blessing that we always have room to grow in our lives. How boring would it be if we ever perfected everything? But it’s doubly encouraging to me that we’re not left on our own to do the fixing, learning, and maturing. God is the greatest agent of change there is. And molding us to be the best version of us always has been and always will be a priority for Him.

Program provides game-changing skills By Ruth White Students in the workbased learning program through Union County High School are learning skills that are considered gamechangers for many. Through the program, several special education students go out into the community and are placed in participating businesses. The skills often learned include customer service (which is big because many of the students are quiet or reserved); following a schedule, basic banking skills and interviewing. At the beginning of the program, instructors often model good work behavior for the students in the job environment. By the end of the year, the teachers serve as transportation drivers to and from work and as facilitators. T.J. Nix works at the Food

City in Union County in the produce department. He has learned customer service skills such as communicating, making eye contact when talking to people and where items are in the store. “When the students leave the program, they walk out with a suitcase of skills,” said Leanne Friebel, the countywide work-based learning coordinator. Zachary Kitts and Bradley Noll work at Fred’s in Union County. They follow a schedule each day of specific tasks to complete, such as cleaning windows and sweeping, restocking items on shelves, fronting shelves, breaking down empty boxes and assisting customers with items. Many job tasks require the students to work together and problem solve when a situation may arise. Bridgett Foster works at

Sophomore students selected are Austin Zachary and Britney Ferrell. Austin is known for being on time to class and prepared to learn. He is always willing to help other students. Britney has a smile that is ever-present in class. She is willing to share her ideas and works hard to do her best in class. Junior picks include Jonathan Gladwell and Josiee Keck. Jonathan has been called a “hard working student” and polite student. He is known for being courteous and helpful. Josiee is a leader, helper and allaround good student at Gibbs. She

Goodwill in town and enjoys working in retail. She said that she was shy when she started the program but has learned great customer service skills. She hopes to work in retail in the future and knows that the program has given her skills to do her job well. She went through an interview process with the manager at Goodwill and used those skills learned in the classroom and through practice sessions during the process. Cheyenne Wise has worked in the kitchen at

Willowridge Nursing Home. Her plans include becoming a dietary aide after graduation from UCHS, and the skills she has learned under the guidance of instructors and staff members will help her achieve her goal. The program not only provides students with needed skills to succeed in the work world after graduation, but also gives potential employers an opportunity to work beside these students and to see what they can accomplish in a work setting and in life.

Faith and Justice Legal Advice Clinic upcoming

Property sales steady in April By Sherry Witt The first full month of spring was somewhat lackluster for local real estate and lending markets. The month ending on Friday, April 28, produced 1,029 property sales in Knox County, down from 1,138 in March and 84 short of the total recorded during April 2016. While the number of Sherry Witt transfers lagged, the aggregate value of property sold during the month held remarkably steady at $240.9 million – nearly identical to both March and last April’s figures. In March, the total real estate sold in Knox County was $240.1 million, while April 2016 produced $240.8 million in transfers. Mortgage lending experienced a slight dip in April as $295 million was borrowed against real property in the county, which

UT official gets $80,000 raise Ryan Robinson, the new vice chancellor for communications for UT Chancellor Beverly Davenport, receives a significant pay boost moving from assistant spokesman for the Athletics Department to the Chancellor’s office on May 17. He jumps $80,000 from his current $145,000 a year to $225,000. This is more than double what the communications directors for Knoxville and Knox County make. It far exceeds the going rate for media people in the East Tennessee area. Why is UT doing this? The answer will be it is consistent with comparable positions in other universities. Many do not agree with that argument. ■■ Knoxville lost

He made Knoxville safer and had the respect of the men and women of the Knoxville Police Department. He was a policeman’s policeman. ■■ Former City Council member Raleigh Wynn Sr. died April 30 at age 93. He served briefly on City Council following the death of council member Danny

Harry Brooks, who is retiring. He sat on the House floor during the session. Wright is a likely candidate next year. Wright said Haslam was “supportive” of his possible candidacy during a 15-minute meeting last week. While Wright has not officially  announced, this trip is a very strong indication he is running. Wright said he would wait until his term as chair of commission expires in August before making it official.

Wright’s term on County Commission runs to Aug. 31, 2020. If elected, Wright would resign his commission seat in November or December 2018 and commission would choose his successor, who would serve without election until August 2020. Wright is actually one year older than Brooks, who has served 15 years. Wright turns 72 this September. Brooks is 71 the same month. If elected next year, Wright would be 73, and probably not serve more than six or eight years. Other candidates for the seat may emerge. State Rep. Roger Kane is also leaving the House next year to run for County Court Clerk. ■■ Randy Boyd had a

stellar turnout for his major fundraiser at the Mill & Mine in downtown Knoxville with over 400 raising $1.5 million for the governor’s race. Attendees include U.S. Rep. John Duncan, Knox County Trustee Ed Shouse, Lenoir City Mayor Tony Aikens, UT vice chair Raja Jubran and UT President Joe DiPietro. Boyd has been a very generous supporter of UTK as well as other groups in Knoxville. It is rare for public university presidents to attend political campaign events. Haslam hosted a $1,000-a-person fundraiser last Monday, May 8, at the Governor’s Residence in Nashville for Ed Gillespie, who is a Republican running for governor of Virginia this fall.

He wrote “Divided Loyalties,” which is considered the book on the Civil War in Knoxville. He was the uncle of well known attorney Arthur Seymour Jr. His late wife, Lois, was active in local GOP politics in the 1960s and 1970s.

HealtH & lifestyles News From Fort saNders regioNal medical ceNter

A wise choice

New parents are grateful for team approach at Fort Sanders Regional Wesley Minton sat in the waiting room at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center wondering if he would go home as part of a family, as a single parent, or all alone. His wife was 36 weeks pregnant, hospitalized, and unconscious following a seizure. There was nothing he could do but wait and pray.

Thanks to the teamwork between Fort Sanders Regional and East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, the entire Minton family is happy and healthy.

Making a choice When Wesley and Emily Minton decided to start a family, there were plenty of great hospital choices for the delivery of their first baby. Emily, who is a nurse practitioner, says the partnership between Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center and East Tennessee Children’s Hospital was a major factor in the decision-making process. The two hospitals are located next door to each other and connected by a tunnel, so pediatric specialists have the fastest access to the littlest of patients. The Mintons’ hospital choice turned out to be more important than they ever could have imagined when Emily was airlifted to Fort Sanders Regional from their home in Claiborne County on a Saturday night in October.

An unexpected emergency Wesley says he walked into their bathroom to find Emily sick, suffering a seizure caused by eclampsia, a life-threatening condition brought on by high blood pressure. He held her close and called her name repeatedly, but instead of responding she began to go into another seizure that was even worse, driving her whole body into convulsions. He called 911 and an ambulance quickly arrived, but before it could leave the driveway Emily was overtaken by a third seizure, and paramedics determined she needed to be flown to Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center for immediate care. Her blood pressure was 262 over 175. “I knew the severity of the situaCurtis Elam, MD tion,” Wesley says. “I was just hoping

one or both of them would make it.” Obstetrician Curtis Elam, MD, was on call and waiting when the helicopter landed. Dr. Elam carefully explained to Wesley and extended family members what was happening and reassured the father-to-be that Emily was being well cared for. “He told me that the baby was alive, and they had to do some extensive tests on Emily,” Wesley says. “She was in very critical condition and they had to get her stabilized.” There was an MRI, more medication was administered to bring Emily’s blood pressure down, and preparations were made for an emergency C-section. Wesley was re-

A special partnership Emily Minton had worked at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital as a nurse and nurse practitioner, so she had firsthand knowledge of the partnership between Fort Sanders Regional and East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. The two facilities have an open door policy, so there’s nothing to slow down the effort to provide immediate, specialized care to newborns who need it. When the decision was made to perform Emily’s emergency C-section, a team from Children’s quickly assembled and moved through the tunnel connecting the two hospitals, standing nearby as the procedure was performed at Fort Sanders Regional. Baby Amelia was immediately assessed by pediatric specialists and whisked away through the tunnel to the neonatal intensive care unit at Children’s.

While medical staff at Fort Sanders worked to stabilize Emily’s blood pressure, Wesley Minton was able to see his newborn daughter without traveling too far from where his wife was being treated. Later, the day after Amelia was born, Emily was able to travel the short distance indoors through the tunnel to meet her baby. “The whole team was extremely compassionate, and very attentive to our needs the whole time we were there,” Wesley says. “We couldn’t ask for a group of people to be any better to us.” Emily agrees, saying she would definitely choose the Fort Sanders Regional and Children’s teams, if she had to do it all over again.

lieved when he learned his daughter had been safely delivered. He waited and prayed for his wife, who still lay unconscious in a hospital bed. Friends and relatives sat with him in the waiting room as the minutes and hours crept by. There were also private moments when he waited at his wife’s bedside in the intensive care unit. Emily’s blood pressure began to lower, and she was eventually removed from a ventilator. Shortly afterward, she opened her eyes. “I knew I was in a hospital,” Emily says, “but I had no idea what had happened.” She was also aware that she was no longer pregnant, so the first question she asked was about her baby. She was flooded with relief to hear that her child was safe and sound on the other side of the tunnel, just across the street at East Tennessee Children’s Hospital. The mother and daughter had to remain hospitalized for a time, but while Emily was still a patient at Fort Sanders Regional, she was able to travel through the tunnel to hold her baby. Little Amelia stayed under the watchful care of Children’s Hospital for about a week, and then the Mintons were finally able to start life as a family together at home. Wesley says that through the care of doctors, nurses and specialists, his family has experienced a miracle. “Dr. Elam has a special place in our hearts,” he says. “And the team at Fort Sanders and Children’s went over and above in how accommodating they were. We’re so grateful and thankful and couldn’t have asked for anyone better than Dr. Elam and the whole staff at Fort Sanders Regional and Children’s.”

National Safe Sleep Hospital Certification Progam recognizes Fort Sanders Regional FSRMC was recently recognized by the National safe Sleep Hospital Certification Program for its commitment to best practices and education on infant safe sleep. The National Safe Sleep Hospital Certification Program was created by Cribs for Kids®, a Pittsburghbased organization dedicated to preventing infant sleep-related deaths due to accidental suffocation. In addition to being Cribs for Kids® partners, Fort Sanders Regional was recognized for following the safe sleep guidelines recommended by the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP), and providing training programs for parents and hospital staff. “Sleep-Related Death (SRD) results in the loss of more than 3,500 infants every year in the U.S.,” said Michael H. Goodstein, M.D., neonatologist and medical director of research at Cribs

for Kids®. “We know that consistent education can have a profound effect on infant mortality, and this program is designed to encourage safe sleep education and to recognize those hospitals that are taking an active role in reducing these preventable deaths.” FSR Director of Women’s Services Cathy Fry recognizes the importance of community education in preventable deaths. “The nursery begins the discussion upon a baby’s admission and continues their education throughout the stay, prompting new parents to continue these practices when they go home.” For more information on the Cribs for Kids® National Safe Sleep Hospital Certification program visit www.cribsforkids. org/safesleephospitalcertification/.
