Remembering Jenkins & Jenkins For them, the demise of the Jenkins & Jenkins name is one more marker of the end of an era. The firm that was founded in 1933 by the unrelated Ray H. Jenkins and Erby Jenkins (Erby’s brother Aubrey didn’t join up until 10 years later), has become Quist, Cone & Fisher. The legendary firm hasn’t dissolved, says J&J managing partner Michael Fitzpatrick, who has been a partner with the firm since 1980. “It’s just changing names.”

at Red Gate

By Jake Mabe

The 10th annual Red Gate Festival and Rodeo was a big hit July 12-13 at Red Gate Farm in Maynardville. Organizer Butch Butcher says the good weather helped bring big crowds on Friday and Saturday, with an estimated 4,000 attending the second night. “It being outside, it all depends on the weather,” Butcher said. “But it’s good family entertainment for the people of Union County and other surrounding areas.” Spur ’N S Rodeo Company of Blaine (Mike Stalans) spearheads the rodeo and Butcher says the outfit does David Cunningham and his son, Cooper, 4, get ready to enjoy the 10th annual Red a great job. “He hires No. 1 rodeo Gate Festival and Rodeo. people.

Community mourns Bud Coomer By Sandra Clark Bud Coomer was such a Fountain City fi xture that we all expected him to be there forever, sitting with his buddies at Litton’s round table, telling tales and knowing everybody who walked by. That tie to Fountain City’s past ended July 17 when Walter E. “Bud” Coomer Sr. passed away at Tennova Residential Hospice. He was 84.

Ronald Hill worked with Mr. Coomer at Mynatt Funeral Home since 1961. “We spent a lot of days together,” he said. “He and Bill Payne helped me get my start.” Hill was part of the Mynatt lunch bunch, men in suits who ate together, always at a Fountain City restaurant. “We started going to the Blue Circle. Bud’s wife was a part of the Blue Circle family and she worked there in the office until they sold out. “Then we went to Stevens Drug Store, and then Ray Acuff’s and then the Amber. Lately, since

Mary died, the only place Bud wanted to eat was Litton’s. We ate there every day,” Hill said. Bud was president of Mynatt Funeral Home, where he had worked since 1948. His son, Buddy, continues to work there. Services were held over the weekend, and Mr. Mynatt was buried at Greenwood Cemetery. He was a member of Salem Baptist Church. Survivors include his son, Walter E. “Buddy” Coomer Jr.; grandchildren Ashley and Andrea Coomer; sister-in-law Ruth Coomer.

He was preceded in death by his wife of 52 years, Mary; parents, Walter C. and Clara Mynatt Coomer; sister and her husband, Helen and Charles Kem; and brother, Charlie Coomer. Mynatt Funeral Home was established in 1900 in Halls by Earnest Mynatt. His son, Kyle Mynatt, moved the business to Fountain City in 1929. In 2005, a second location was opened at 4131 E. Emory Road, very near the first site at the original Halls Crossroads. Over 113 years, Mynatt Funeral Home has touched every family in these parts. “Bud was good at funeral work,” said Ronald Hill. “He knew how to do things and he liked to work with the common people. We still try to do that.”



A committee of four – Commissioners Kevin Julian and Todd Cook and two staff members selected by CEO Darren Cardwell – will interview the applicants and recommend three to the board. The board will then submit three names to Burchett who can select one or reject all, throwing the process back to HPUD for three more nominees. On a motion by Cook, the interviews will be open to the public. Also, at a somewhat raucous meeting Thursday, three citizens voiced concerns and HPUD attorney John Valliant fired back at one. Robert Hammond of Halls asked if HPUD leaders had served in the military. Valliant told him that was not relevant. Hammond then challenged Cardwell on his salary and benefits. “I make $154,000, and bought my own car and pay for my gas,” said Cardwell. State law says board

Tibet comes to Fountain City

A realistically costumed character, the endangered Giant Panda of Tibet, asks everyone to help save him.

The Tibetans celebrate their “celestial animal,” the Snow Lion. It symbolizes fearlessness and unconditional cheerfulness.

The Tibetans demonstrate the process of debate in the monasteries, important as a way to learn Buddhist philosophy. “Ignorance is the root cause of suffering, and wisdom is the antidote to ignorance,” the monks explain. The lively exchange contains highly symbolic movements, such as the upraised arm representing a sword of knowledge, cutting through ignorance. A peek inside the culture of Tibet and the life of monks was shared when the Fountain City United Methodist Church Sunday school class, Twenty-first Century Christians, hosted a contingent of monks at the church last week.

Tibet has since been rebuilt, but the monks are in India near their beloved leader, the Dalai Lama. The monks offered songs, prayers and offerings to “enhance positive energy and to purify negative influences,” and also demonstrated dances. One of the dances is the Tashi Shoelpa, to bring good luck and good omens. It is Libby performed with the dancers Morgan in white-bearded masks to symbolize long life and good health. The Giant Panda cudThe seven monks, several dled up to the crowd by of whom have traveled to the crawling between rows, alU.S. before, came here from lowing everyone to delight their monastery in India, in the remarkably realistic Labrang Tashi Kyil, where costume.

The original monastery in satile monk, Tenpa Phuntsok.

Yaks are native to the Himalayan mountains, and have been domesticated for 5,000 years. Phuntsok exhibited his incredible talent at “throat chanting,” an impossibly low register of sound, at the mandala ceremony at Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church. While all of the visiting monks spoke some English, Phuntsok acts as the official translator for the group. The Fountain City guests were treated to a traditional Buddhist debate, with a few of the debate-specific words translated on paper for the audience to listen for. Gestures are important, with the use of the left hand representing wisdom, the right hand representing method, and the clap a union of the two. Many guests took home Tibetan-made items of jewel-

ry, silks, bowls and, of course, prayer flags. The monks’ Fountain City visit was during the fourday creation of a mandala at TVUUC. They used colored sand to “paint” a circular design depicting the unity of all religions and humanity. And to represent the impermanence of all phenomena, the intricate art was ceremoniously swept up, carried to the creek behind the church and poured into the moving water. The event was a benefit for the monastery, where there is a need for structural repair, expansion and better facilities.

‘Like a child at Christmas’ It was just what the doctor ordered. If you’ll forgive a quick personal note, the past few weeks haven’t been the greatest in the world. My grandmother passed away July 6. And, last weekend, I began to experience some of the worst lower back pain I’ve ever had in my life. Turns out I have sciatica. Go ahead and insert an old man joke here if you want. Anyway, the interns wrapped up their summer stay at the Shopper last week. Sara Barrett called to tell me the last stop on the tour was going to be Ciderville Music Barn on Clinton Highway. David West was going to pick a little and tell stories about Cas Walker. Sammy “Barney Fife” Sawyer and Bo “Briscoe Darling” Pierce were stopping by with the Mayberry squad car. “You’ll love it!” Sara said. So I hobbled over to Ciderville. And, boy howdy, did we have a good time. Sammy did his pitchperfect Barney Fife. We re-enacted the scene from the Griffith Show’s “Barney and the Choir” episode, in which Andy tells Barney he’ll be singing solo during “good ol’ 14-A” from a highpowered microphone and needs to sing really quietly. (What Barney doesn’t know, of course, is that Andy has recruited a bass singer to stand behind the curtain to do the actual singing for tone-deaf Barney.) As you may know, David West played in Cas Walker’s band for years. He told Cas stories, the kind of stuff even the most imaginative writer couldn’t make up. David pulled out his banjo and led us in a singalong to the “Cas Walker Farm

Jake Mabe MY TWO CENTS and Home Hour” theme. I jumped into Cas’ routine about security in his supermarkets’ parking lots. (Look it up on YouTube.) Then David rattled off some of the famous names who got their start on Cas’ show: Dolly Parton, The Everly Brothers, others. “Hey,” I asked, “did Carl Butler ever sing on Cas’ show?” “Oh, yeah,” David said. “Well, why don’t we sing a little bit of ‘Don’t Let Me Cross Over’ then?” Guess who got all excited and sang lead? I got to worrying the interns (who are all of highschool age) might have thought they had landed on Mars, but they seemed to like the music. As we were pickin’ and grinnin,’ I looked around the room. Sammy was tapping his leg, just like Barney used to do. Bo Pierce was blowing into his jug. David was playing that banjo like only he can. I grinned from ear to ear. “You were like a child at Christmas,” somebody said later. Just what the doctor ordered. ■

Teeters, the executive director of Keep Knoxville Beautiful, didn’t do it to embarrass anyone, but to show the Halls Business and Professional Association that litter is a problem everywhere. “Eighty percent of litter starts on the roadway and ends up in our water,” Teeters said. “Last year, the United States spent $11.5 billion on litter and the state of Tennessee spent $11 million.” She praised organizations and community groups like the Halls Crossroads Women’s League, which regularly holds litter pick-ups. She encouraged individuals and businesses to get involved. “I want Knoxville to be the most beautiful city in America. Once you’ve picked it up, you’ll never litter again, even accidentally.” For more info about Keep Knoxville Beautiful, visit www. or call 521-6957. Visit Jake Mabe online at jakemabe.

Bob Temple spoke against construction of wastewater storage tanks, arguing that money would be better spent to repair leaking lines. Bonnie Holloway asked how the summer sewer credits are working. Cardwell said some customers have saved money, but the heavy rains have meant less water usage. He said June had 9.3 inches of rain against a June average of .31 inches.

On July 12, Gov. Bill Haslam signed the paperwork necessary to transfer the remaining state-owned portion of Lakeshore Park to the city of Knoxville.

Cas Walker, Knoxville Madam Hazel Davidson and Ray H. Jenkins were three of Knoxville’s best-known 20th Century citizens, so it should surprise no one that both Walker and Davidson chose Jenkins to represent them when they had need of a lawyer.

Betty Bean In 1961, the Internal Revenue Service got Walker indicted in federal court for tax evasion, and he hired Jenkins and Clyde Key to defend him. Jenkins wrote about it in his memoir, “The Terror of Tellico Plains.” “What he lacked in erudition he made up for in imagination. “For instance, he sent out statements of account to a previous owner’s customers which he knew had been paid, and when the irate customer came in to protest, Cas would apologize,

hoping they would see he had an honest face. He then marked the old accounts paid in full, thus making new friends.” Jenkins’ trial strategy was to play Walker’s popularity with common folks against the unpopularity of the IRS, which had sent a fancy prosecutor down from Washington. Jenkins portrayed Walker’s tax problems as understandable bookkeeping errors unwittingly committed by a naive, humble man. “With the unwitting help of the government we made a martyr out of him,” Jenkins said. “We were careful to select a jury of the common people, Cas’s peers, who saw the farm boy, the coal miner, the benefactor of children and needy families ridiculed and reviled as no other man within our recollection had ever been. The jury resented it.” They found Walker not guilty. Jenkins conceded that the feds had some powerful evidence, “But the govern-

ment didn’t have a chance against the ex-coal miner, merchant, politician and benefactor. For our services he paid us $100,000 without batting an eye.” The payday wasn’t as good on one of the occasions when he represented Davidson, whom he described as his “most glamorous client beyond compare.” She was being sued by a wealthy former suitor, who wanted her to repay nearly $60,000, which he claimed was a loan. Davidson said it was for services rendered. The boyfriend won in Chancery Court, but Davidson prevailed in the Court of Appeals, where the judges didn’t buy his claim. The next chapter wasn’t in his book, however. Former law partner Jim MacDonald remembers that the cash-strapped Davidson gave Jenkins a diamond ring in lieu of payment, which he kept in a safe until she was able to settle up. One weekend, she asked Jenkins if she could borrow back her ring to wear to a party. He

agreed, and she returned it promptly. Much later, when it became apparent that she wasn’t going to pay, he had the ring appraised. It was a hunk of worthless cubic zirconia. She’d pulled a classic bait and switch. He was nevertheless gracious in his assessment of her in his memoir, calling her “fundamentally and essentially, and to the core of her heart, body and soul, a good woman,” proving that the Terror of Tellico Plains had a forgiving nature.

Some things don’t make sense On my list of things that make no sense: Commissioner Dave Wright voted no on three education consent items, which by court decree must be passed by County Commission. The votes were at last Monday’s workshop, but surely will be replicated at today’s meeting. Actually, I agree with Wright on two of the three votes. He said “no” to giving the Boston-based Parthenon Group $1.2 million to study the school system’s resources alignment; and “no” to a $350,000 or so local match to a $850,000 grant from the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation to support the Parthenon contract. Call those votes “wright on!” Baffling though is Dave’s no vote on the proposed Career and Technical Education high school at the Strawberry Plains campus

Sandra Clark

of Pellissippi State Community College. It’s in his district, and seems to be a wonderful opportunity for certain high school students to gain college credit while studying careers of the future. Wright said he was blindsided by the CTE proposal, thinking that Knox County Schools’ involvement would be limited to juniors and seniors. To create a full-blown high school just down the road from Carter High School is a different concept and will cost a lot of money, he said, “and we’ve had ab-

solutely no discussion.” He noted: “I didn’t embrace the L&N STEM Academy either.” Hmmm. That would be the L&N STEM Academy that has a waiting list of applicants. U.S. Rep. Steve Cohen, D-Memphis, said he’s “stunned and dismayed” to learn that DNA tests revealed he is not the father of a woman with whom he had an affectionate Twitter exchange this year. As reported in the Memphis Daily News online, Cohen is not the dad of 24-year-old Victoria Brick of Texas. This became an issue when Cohen was caught tweeting during the President’s State of the Union Address. Honest. Cohen says he’s longtime friends with Brick’s mom, criminal defense lawyer Cynthia White Sinatra, who ran for Congress in 2006

Twenty-plus highly qualified folks have applied to be Knox County trustee. Why? When 11 politicians get to vote, you can bet they will pick someone they’ve heard of for a job that should not even still exist. Bob Hammond said the world’s got too many lawyers when John Valliant challenged him at an HPUD meeting. Later, Valliant said, “Well, I don’t disagree.” And Mike Cohen (no relation to Steve Cohen) told a lawyer joke: “What do you call 500 lawyers at the bottom of the sea? “A start.”

Remembering Jenkins & Jenkins

Meeting the Pope

LAW DOGS | Betty Bean For them, the demise of the Jenkins & Jenkins name is one more marker of the end of an era. The firm that was founded in 1933 by the unrelated Ray H. Jenkins and Erby Jenkins (Erby’s brother Aubrey didn’t join up until 10 years later), has become Quist, Cone & Fisher. The legendary firm hasn’t dissolved, says J&J managing partner Michael Fitzpatrick, who has been a partner with the firm since 1980. “It’s just changing names. “It’s still the same legal entity and has the same tax number,� Fitzpatrick said. “It did not dissolve.� Why the change? “The younger members of the firm didn’t know the founding members, and there are adjustments that have to be made as you progress through the history of anything. The younger people here who are trying to market their skills need some pride of ownership, and (the name change) fits the identity of the firm in the present.�

In the beginning The three Jenkinses made an unparalleled team. Tall, bombastic Ray H. Jenkins was a genius trial lawyer. Short, erudite Erby Jenkins was a brilliant strategist and legal writer whose political influence reached to the state and national level and who, when sitting as a special judge on the state Supreme Court, authored a witty opinion on a divorce case that is still cited today. His younger brother Aubrey was a consummate dealmaker whose control over

the inner workings of the Knox County Republican Party has no modern day equal. Nor do his escapades, including epic escapes to his hacienda in Havana. “Tip O’Neill said all politics are local, and Aubrey was a local guy, wired in with Bobby ‘Coal Man’ Toole and Paul ‘Ice Man’ Nicely. “He was a force, and you needed to expect him when you saw him coming. Ray and Erby were top dog lawyers, but Aubrey had MacDonald more business than either of them. When Aubrey was gone, it was almost mystical how the phones would stop ringing. He’d get back, and almost mystically the phones would start ringing again,� said former partner Jim MacDonald. It all began with the “Terror of Tellico Plains,� Ray

Howard Jenkins, whose oratory rattled the walls of East Tennessee courtrooms for nearly 60 years. He burst onto the national scene in 1954 when Sen. Everett Dirksen recruited him to serve as special counsel to the Senate Subcommittee on Investigations in the ArmyMcCarthy Hearings, the first such proceedings ever to be televised nationwide (think of it as the Watergate Hearings of the ’50s). Over three months, characters like the big, redheaded Tennessean, the young Bobby Kennedy and the eloquent Bostonian Joe Welch entered the national conversation about red-baiting Sen. Joseph McCarthy. Jenkins left such a dramatic impression that he landed on the cover of Time Magazine and inspired L’il Abner cartoonist Al Capp to add a new character, fiery lawyer Y.Y. Cragnose, to the population of Dogpatch.

The practice Born in 1897, Ray Jen-

kins, like the Jenkins brothers, was the son of a country doctor. By the time he got his law license in 1919, he was already a veteran of both the U.S. Army and Navy, having interrupted his University of Tennessee law school career to serve under General Pershing in Texas during the Pancho Villa rebellion, and shortly thereafter enlisting in the Navy when World War I broke out. He participated in his first murder trial in Texas, representing himself and a friend after they were courtmartialed for shooting the company bully. He won acquittals, and said he learned a tactic he never forgot: “When a bully has been killed, prove enough on him and paint him so mean that the jury will want to dig him up and kill him again.� (from his memoir, “The Terror of Tellico Plains.�) A historical marker at his family home boasts that none of the 600 murder defendants he represented ever went to the electric chair. Jim MacDonald, who came into the firm during Ray Jenkins’ twilight years and assisted on Jenkins’ last jury trial, remembers him as “not only an irrepressible, dominating personality, but a hellacious lawyer. People did not give him credit for what a good lawyer he was.� MacDonald recalls two instances where Jenkins was right on the issues and

“One morning I get a call about 9 o’clock from Mr. Aubrey saying ‘Irishman, you need to go over to George Balitsaris’ court and get a case passed. I have an audience with the Pope in South Carolina.’ “So I hustle over there and the prosecutor, Jo Helm, isn’t inclined to postpone it again. “I ask what kind of case it is, and it’s a first-degree murder case. Holy crap! I’m panicked. I don’t know the client. “Then court opens, and Judge BalitFrancis saris looks at me and says, ‘Aubrey’s in South Carolina with the Pope. We’ll need to continue this case.’ “Mr. Aubrey got back a couple days later and gave me a rosary.� – Dennis Francis, partner, Jenkins & Jenkins, 1981-1989

Dressing as Santa “Ray Jenkins was my very best friend for many, many years, and I have the highest regard for him of anybody I’ve ever known except my father. “Something most people don’t realize was his generosity. Every December he’d take two weeks off and with the assistance of his wife and secretary, he’d get on the phone and solicit the people of Knoxville for the Empty Stocking Fund. “As a lawyer, your time is your stock in trade, and it takes a big heart to do something like that. On Christmas, he’d dress up as Santa Claus and pay my family a visit with a gift for each of my children. He’d tell them stories about what was going on at the North Pole, and he was a great storyteller. “One year, my daughter Carolyn came to me and said, ‘Daddy is Mr. Jenkins going to come back on Easter?’� – Paul Dunn, partner, Jenkins & Jenkins 1964-1995

Defining failure “Aubrey regarded a trial as a failure of pre-trial negotiations.� – Jim MacDonald, partner, Jenkins & Jenkins, 1974-1995 everybody else was wrong. “He had unparalleled instincts for when to do things and when not to do things in a trial. I got to know him far after his prime and he was still better than all the rest of us.�

The last trial Of that last trial, MacDonald says, “We were very

anxious to find out if there were any eyewitnesses, and Ray managed to get one of the state’s witnesses on the stand at the preliminary hearing. “I came back laughing at how he’d bulldozed his way over objections of the attorney general and convinced the judge he should be entitled to put on his case.�

The felines among us And among the nations the remnant of Jacob, surrounded by many people, shall be like a lion among the animals of the forest, like a young lion among the flocks of sheep, which, when it goes through, treads down and tears in pieces, with no one to deliver. (Micah 5: 8 NRSV)

seven/eighths without socks. He was 176 last season. He is now 190. When he takes a deep breath, he is six feet tall. College coaches prefer Peyton Manning-sized quarterbacks who can see over large linemen. High must move his feet and find ways to look around them. Condredge Holloway became a Tennessee legend without being very tall. Perhaps you have heard of Doug Flutie. Sonny Jurgensen, 5-11, is in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Drew Brees is the best six-footer currently conducting business in the NFL. Before him were Fran Tarkenton, Len Dawson and Joe Theismann. All are exceptions to the tallness rule. But wait, wait, you say,

the game has changed so much and those famous names were very athletic, nifty scramblers with power arms. Here High takes another hit. He is accused of being a “system” quarterback. We are told his very bright coach, Rusty Bradley, and the school team made Charlie a winner instead of the other way around. Three excellent receivers – Davis Howell, Josh Smith and Franklin Murchison – made it happen. Few mention High’s strengths, football instincts, poise under duress, terrific touch, amazing accuracy. Can he deliver peak performance under pressure? Check his numbers in state playoff games. Walk-ons who come to Tennessee with minimum

Walk-ons who climb far above expectations, crash the starting lineup and win scholarships become treasured success stories. Think Tim Townes, Jeff Powell, Alan Duncan, Steve Robinson and the Sullins twins, Cody and Cory. Walk-ons who defy limitations and just keep pushing, up and up, until they become leaders of men – captains Mike LaSorsa, J.J. McCleskey, Nick Reveiz – are unforgettable!

directed by John Huston) is when Noah’s wife demands of her husband, “How are we going to feed all these lions and tigers?” Noah (played by Huston himself) calmly replies, “Well, they are just great cats!” as he sets down a bowl of milk before the beasts. My husband’s cat (aptly named Kitty Kat) arrived on the scene by misfortune. Or perhaps I should say, more accurately, by Providence. She was a tiny kitten, not old enough to be weaned, when someone heartlessly set her out beside the road near Lewis’ house. He found her, and rescued her (or she rescued him, because until her arrival he was alone and lonely).

He took her in, fed her with a medicine dropper, and she became his constant companion, his familiar, his friend. She has expressive green eyes, and black, black fur, with about six white hairs on the scruff of her neck. She is, quite simply, elegant. I remind her frequently that if she had lived in ancient Egypt, she would have been considered a goddess. I am convinced she is pleased by that news. She loves me and has accepted me graciously, but she is still Lewis’ cat, and he is her person. She goes to his office with him every day, and has two perches there: one on a table at the end of his desk, and the other on a

chair beside a windowed door where she can survey her domain. I found some feathers scattered across the parking lot the other day, and realized that Kitty Kat, like every feline, is at heart a predator, no matter how domesticated. I am grateful she did not feel the need to share her prey with me. I like birds as long as there is glass between me and their beaks and claws, and even a feather gives me the shivers. I am grateful Kitty Kat permits me to live in her house, and that she graciously allows me to love her person. But I should expect no less. She is, after all, a lady.

David Cunningham dies

David M. Cunningham, 73, professional equestrian and owner of Beaverbrook Stables in Halls, passed away July 10. David began training horses as a teen and went on to become a driving force in every aspect of the horse industry. He successfully trained, showed and sold many of the nation’s top American Saddlebred, Hackney and Roadster horses and ponies during his nearly 60-year career. He won Cunningham more than 30 World Champion and Reserve titles with horses and riders he trained. He was a founding member of the United Professional Horseman’s Association and received its highest honor in 2012, being inducted into the Hall of Fame. David will best be remembered by his friends for his help in building their futures in the horse industry. A lifelong resident of Knoxville, David was involved with the Greater Knoxville Charity Horse Show which benefitted the local Boys and Girls Club. Preceded in death by parents Earl and Blanche Cunningham of Knoxville, he is survived by daughter Michelle (Dalles Lee) Phillips, 30, of Knoxville. In lieu of flowers, memorial donations may be made to the Boys and Girls Club of Halls/Powell, 1819 Dry Gap Pike, Knoxville, TN 37918 or the United Professional Horseman’s Association 4059 Iron Works Parkway, Lexington, KY 40511.

Row after row of vegetables are ripening in the glorious community garden at Rutherford Memorial UMC.

Glorious gardening Rutherford Memorial United Methodist Church has been holding a food pantry for years. Stephanie Doyal decided to take that a bit further. “I’ve worked in the food pantry distributing food for several years and saw how great the need was,” she said. “I wanted to do more to help feed the hungry and I thought they needed more than nonperishable items.” Stephanie says she has always had a love for gardening, and the idea of a community garden seemed like a good way to help people get fresh vegetables. As a Girl Scout, Stephanie can use the garden as her Gold Award project. This is the highest level of achievement in Girl Scouts and requires Council approval, a lot of planning and at least 80

Local flavor: milk, music and more Week seven with the interns

Last week’s meeting of the Shopper interns was bittersweet. Fun was had by all, but sadly, it was the group’s last trip of the summer. A tour of Broadacres Dairy

gave the group a look at Weigel’s process for making its famous milk, and lunch at Lulu’s gave the interns a chance to play dress-up while enjoying delicious teatime fare. Finally, a trip to Ciderville

music store showed the lighter side of local history with stories of Cas Walker, hunting dogs and Barney Fife’s bullet with a few banjo-led jam sessions thrown in for good measure.

The Shopper-News staff is already looking forward to next summer’s activities, and the interns must have enjoyed it, too, because most were asking to return for a second summer!

Touring Broadacres Dairy By Sandra Clark What happens to milk after the cow is milked until you grab a pint or gallon at the grocery? The Shopper-News interns set out to solve this mystery with a visit to Weigel’s and its companion business Broadacres Dairy. What we learned was amazing. The original Broadacres farm (Emory Road in Powell) was bigger than 700 acres and began as a vegetable farm more than 100 years ago. Weigel’s Convenience Stores is now headed by Bill Weigel, grandson of the founder. Bill’s son Kurt Fresh milk must first be tested to assure quality.

Weigel’s is launching a new product soon – a Cappuccino Chiller that’s “half the price of Starbucks,” said Rouch. After all this, two interns Head lab tech Robert Semple had the same question: discussed the tests the milk “Why is the W off-center in must pass to assure freshness the logo?” “That makes it our tradeand quality standards.

It takes about 20 minutes to test the milk before it is accepted and another 20 minutes to unload the tanker. Douglas Rouch, the plant manager, led our tour. He moved here from Indiana 12 years ago. His goal is to The Weigel home on W. Emory Road make every Weigel’s prod-

Lunch at Lulu’s Tea Room

Lulu’s welcomed the Shopper News interns with a chalkboard sign on the front porch.

Upon hearing the location for lunch, several of the male interns rolled their eyes as thoughts of rose-covered table cloths and dainty finger sandwiches no doubt filled their heads. But after visiting Lulu’s Tea Room and tasting the food, stomachs were happy and everyone left smiling. Menu selections at Lulu’s included chicken and almond quiche, tomato dill soup, sweet bread and raspberry iced tea. Bailey Sizemore gave us excellent service and kept everyone’s glasses filled. Afterward, the interns took a peek at the themed rooms upstairs including one completely devoted to Elvis. A green and pink room is also available for princess tea parties.

The interns had no idea why we stopped at an old building on Clinton Highway, just over the Anderson County line, and why Barney Fife’s cruiser was parked out front. The folks at Ciderville quickly brought them up to speed (or confused them more) by pulling up chairs and breaking into song with store owner David West on banjo, Jodi Harbin on upright bass, Bo Pierce on the jug and Sammy Sawyer chiming in occasionally as his alter ego, Barney Fife. “You got any requests?” asked West. “If you do, write ’em on a $10 bill!” Customers attracted by the car and musicians drifted in off the street to join the mayhem. Even reporter Jake Mabe broke into song, channeling George Jones and Carl Butler. “That, my friends, is country music,” he told the interns. Most had just sunk down to sit on the floor. West told tales of local legend Cas Walker including one absolutely hilarious story of cramming three musicians into the backseat of a car for a trip to Ken-

tucky. Up there he bought a coon dog. Guess where it rode on the way back? Yes, across their laps. Harbin talked about the personality of the store which has been open since 1958. “(If) you go to a lot of music stores, you’ll know this one’s unique,” she said. West and his friends The caption under this photo of Monroe Queener and David walked the interns next door West reads “TV stars.” to the barn where the walls are covered with more pictures of country music stars.

Videos of the original Cas Walker show are shown on a large TV before musicians play live bluegrass and country music. “It is a very family friendly show,” she said. Little kids are even invited to dance in front of the stage. Doors open at 6:30 p.m., movies are shown 7-8 p.m., and the music runs until 11 p.m. Info: 945-3595. And who knows?

A wild and wonderful summer By Ruth White The summer intern program at the ShopperNews is seven weeks of fun-filled activities around town and eating at some newly discovered restaurants. It is always a thrill to be part of this program and capture the smiles from the interns and staff members. This year the group of 12 students and three Shopper staff members visited the Knoxville Zoo, Knox Area Rescue Ministries, Mayors Tim Burchett and Madeline Rogero, Sheriff Jimmy Jones, Concord Park Par 3 Golf Course, Beck Cultural Center, Neyland Stadium, WBIR, WIVK, Mox ley- Ca r michael, KUB offices, Weigel’s offices, Farragut Folklife Museum and Ciderville. We ate lunch at fun places including Litton’s, Chandler’s, the Blue Plate Special at the Knoxville Welcome Center, Lulu’s Tea Room, Lakeside Tavern, Chesa-

peake’s and high above Knoxville inside the Icon Ultra Lounge at the Sunsphere. Much of the program was planned, but sometimes circumstances led to impromptu adventures, such as riding the trolley on the UT campus or visiting art centers in Fountain City and Farragut. Whether planned or not, each Tuesday brought adventures, good food and a lot of chatter and laughter from the group. It’s too hard to pick a favorite place. They were all great and seemed to get better each week. I am truly sad to see the program end but look forward to seeing the interns when I visit schools during the upcoming year. If you are interested in the Shopper News intern program for next year (rising 8th grade students), you can send me an email to bettyphoto@ or stop me the next time I’m in your school.

If you’ve ever seen “The Andy Griffith Show,” you must remember the bumbling deputy of Mayberry, Barney Fife. Last week the interns got to meet the closest to the real thing you’ll get in East Tennessee, Fife impersonator Sammy Sawyer. He met the group at Ciderville music store just off Clinton Highway. We

were also treated to many hilarious stories about regional (if not national) legend Cas Walker. It was a perfect example of those great moments where two generations come together for a good time. I found the experience very enriching and would recommend stopping by Ciderville for a good story and some fine impromptu music.

My time as a Shopper intern By Paul Brooks This summer began with most of the interns (including this one) feeling a bit nervous because we didn’t know what to expect. Eagerness is the word that best describes the general feeling. What would we do? Where would we go? What would we learn? We visited places that sometimes go unnoticed such as the statue of Alex Haley, the Weigel’s farm, and Chandler’s Restaurant. We found ourselves eating in some of the best restaurants in town (let me just say: that was a favorite of mine!). We visited the places that represent our hometown like the Sunsphere, the City County Building and Neyland Stadium. We took loads of pictures. We had fun! We got to know each other. And, along the way, we learned more about ourselves and our surroundings and improved our writing skills.

I will never forget you By Zoe Risley Shopper intern Paul Brooks commands the microphone in Neyland Stadium’s press room.

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers

Jon Rysewyk: A culture of innovation By Sandra Clark We caught up for a phone interview with Dr. Jon Rysewyk, appointed last week as executive director of innovation and school improvement for Knox County Schools. OK. So what’s an executive director of innovation and school improvement? It sounds so Dr. Rysewyk pretentious that it’s hard to even type it out. Rysewyk, though, is anything but pretentious. And everyone we talked with gives him high marks and holds great hopes for his success with the new position. It was created by staff realignment, Dr. Jim McIntyre is careful to point out, and is not an additional employee at the central office. Rysewyk is a direct report to Assistant Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Alves.

Praise from Kincannon Indya Kincannon watched Rysewyk’s work as principal at Fulton High School, starting in 2008. “At Fulton JR went beyond just supporting teachers and students to giving them the means to become leaders themselves,” she wrote from vacation. “He is somehow firm, but self-effacing, smart and patient enough to build and sustain true grassroots reform. “He led FHS through a huge change in 2008, overcame fears and other obstacles. Then, once the initial reforms were in place, he wasn’t afraid to modify in response to ever-changing needs of students and growing expertise of teachers. “He’s a stand-up guy, good listener, true advocate for kids. I think his single best quality is the way he brings out the best in all the people around him.” Kincannon said Fulton is like an educational leadership machine these days, “and Jon’s leadership made that possible.” She mentioned Ryan Siebe, Katy Lutton, Jason Myers and Rob Speas as examples.

The job McIntyre says Rysewyk will be responsible for magnet and gifted programs, STEM, Career and Technical Education (CTE), instructional technology and personalized learning, charter schools and any state designated priority and focus schools. Rysewyk says developing leadership is easy when you start with great raw material. “The principal’s most important job is selecting the best human capital,” he said. “At Fulton (when he became principal) we had a complete restructure,” he said. “We talked about vision, about resources and about

Administrative changes Adam Parker, principal at A.L. Lotts Elementary School since 2011, has been promoted to supervisor of elementary education. He joins Donna Howard and Julie Thompson, reporting to executive director Nancy Parker Maland. Supervisor Susan Turner retired. Parker was principal at Gibbs Elementary during construction of the new school. He joined KCS in 1995 and has worked at Corryton, Powell, and Beaumont elementary schools. Cindy Bosse will replace Parker at A.L. Lotts. She has been principal at Sterchi Elementary since 2004. Bosse She joined KCS in 1993 and has taught at West Haven

alignment. The power to change really rests with those in day-to-day contact with the students. “We wrote job descriptions for empowerment with fair expectations for the faculty. There was a lot of diversity on our school leadership team, from new teachers to 20-year veterans. “We had a contract (for professional development) with Stanford, and we didn’t send the same five people over and over.” By the contract’s end, a third of the Fulton faculty had received training. Fulton High was aligned with four small learning communities within the school, based on the model also used at Hardin Valley Academy. That means a student taking the health sciences track, for example, would have core classes within that wing. Rather than history teachers gathering to discuss history, these teachers had common planning time that was used to discuss kids. Rysewyk reached out to the business community, collaborating with Tennova for health sciences. The team built on Fulton’s strength with a student-run radio station by creating a school of communications and expanding it to include graphics design, computer technology and business classes. Skilled professionals such as plumbers and electricians worked with other students. The programs launched in 2008 are still at Fulton today, but the school has become a countywide magnet.

She has been an assistant principal at Karns Elementary since 2009. She joined KCS in 1995 as a kindergarten teacher at Ball Camp. She has taught at Hardin Boring Valley Elementary and has served as an instructional technology coach and systemwide elementary math coach. Cheryl Hickman, principal at Carter High School since 2001, replaces Dr. Jon Rysewyk Hickman as supervisor of secondary education. She will re-

His excitement shines through when he talks of the new CTE high school in collaboration with Pellissippi State University at Strawberry Plains. And he says the program there should not weaken the ongoing programs at Fulton. “It’s a different set of subjects,” he says, listing sustainable living, teacher prep and homeland security as CTE tracks. “We’ll have lots of fresh programming along with a mega-lab of cyber technology. “Knox County teachers will teach, but we will offer lots of opportunities for dual enrollment with Pellissippi, especially in the junior and senior years. “I’m excited about a lot of the programming, especially in math and science,” he said. “We’ve got some really advanced concepts. It’s not your old voc/ed school.” The school is open to all students, but enrollment may be limited initially.

The power of ‘tweaks’ Change is scary, Rysewyk says, but little tweaks are manageable. It became an inside joke at Fulton that he would start a staff meeting by suggesting a tweak or two. As the staff learned more, tweaks were necessary. For instance, in testing freshmen in his first year, Rysewyk discovered only 55 percent were on track to graduate from high school. After the freshman year, that number had risen to 88 percent, but after a semester in traditional classes for the sophomore year, the number had dropped back to 77 percent. “We didn’t rest on our first year

port to Dr. Clifford Davis, executive director of secondary schools. She joined Knox County Schools in 1983 as an English teacher at Doyle High School. She was appointed an assistant principal at Carter High School in 1999. Ryan Siebe is the new principal of Carter High School, replacing Hickman. Siebe is currently an assistant principal at Austin-East Magnet High School where he has worked since 2011. He was a member of Siebe the inaugural class of the Principal Leadership Academy and was appointed an assistant principal at Fulton High School in 2008. He joined the Knox County Schools in 2000 as an English teacher at Powell Middle School. He has also served as an English teacher at Farragut High and an assistant principal at West High.

success, and we didn’t wait until year’s end to makes changes,” he says. The team chose to loop teachers for 9th and 10th graders so that kids had the same teacher for each subject each year. “Relationships are important,” he says, “especially for these kids in these grades. By the end of the sophomore year, if a kid has 15-16 credits, they have bought in. They’re on track to graduate. “You have to start with the end in mind – constantly monitor outcomes and data. That’s how to breed a culture of innovation and risk-taking.”

The man Jon Rysewyk is an Army brat with Knoxville as his first permanent home. He came here to attend UT and has stayed for 17 years. He has two daughters, ages 7 and 10, both students at Shannondale Elementary School, and the family attends Fellowship Church on Middlebrook Pike. He most recently served as supervisor of secondary education. He joined Knox County Schools in 2002 as a science teacher at Karns High School, after serving previously as a science teacher in the Roane County Schools. He was appointed as an assistant principal at Fulton in 2004 and as principal in 2008. Rysewyk holds a bachelor’s degree in psychology and a master’s degree in education from the University of Tennessee. He also holds an educational specialist degree from Tennessee Tech and a doctorate in educational administration from East Tennessee State University.

Knox Zoo comes to Maynardville

A sweet interlude By Libby Morgan Farmers markets within Teresa Cooper’s preferred drive time get an extra-special treat when she shows up. Cooper brings her crop of baked goodies to sweeten the harvest among all the healthy vegetables, fruits and other farm yields. Bread, cakes, turnovers and cookies travel well, but to experience her chocolates and candies you’ll have to catch her at her shop on Karen Lane just across Hwy. 33 from Red Gate. Union Countians know her from her 20-year career as owner of Teresa’s Bakery, and before that, her children’s day care center, Teresa’s Tiny Tots in Maynardville. Her Union County roots go deeper yet, as she is the daughter of Joe Day, principal of Horace Maynard High School from 1976 until his death in 1985. Teresa and her husband, Mike Cooper, who’s worked at Big Ridge State Park almost 40 years, have three grown kids, Brittney, Blair and Brian, and two grandsons, Jacob and Michael. Custom cakes are just one of Teresa’s Bakery specialties. There are 400 shapes to choose from, something for every occasion. “The favorite, though, is the pie. My homemade chocolate and coconut pies have always been very popular,” says Cooper. “The bread is something I’ve started making recently.

News from Rural/Metro

Stay safe in summer heat By Rob Webb Summer is in full swing in East Tennessee and that means long, hot and humid days. July and August are the hottest months of the year, and Rural/Metro is urging the community to keep heat safety in mind and to limit time spent in the sun. The most serious of heat-related illnesses is Webb heat stroke, which occurs when the body is unable to control its temperature. When heat is excessive, body temperature rises rapidly and is unable to cool down on its own. In some serious cases, temperatures rise to 106 degrees or higher within 10-15 minutes. This can lead Rowland Rent-to-Own is coming back to the Fountain City area and will open by Aug. 1 at 5707 to permanent disability or even death if N. Broadway (near Skatetown).

year, 21 child vehicular stroke deaths have already been reported in the United States and, on average, 38 occur per year. Never leave your child in a parked care for any length of time. Warning signs of heat stroke vary but may include: â&#x2013; Extremely high temperature â&#x20AC;&#x201C; above 103 degrees â&#x2013;  Red, hot and dry skin with no sweating â&#x2013;  Rapid, strong pulse or throbbing headache â&#x2013;  Dizziness and light-headedness â&#x2013;  Nausea and vomiting â&#x2013;  Confusion or irrational behavior If you see or experience any of these symptoms, you may be dealing with heat stroke. Promptly call 9-1-1. Attempt to cool the patient down by taking him or her into a shady, air-conditioned area and decrease body temperature with cold water or any means possible. It may seem counter intuitive, but do not give the patient any fluids to drink. Be sure to monitor the patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s body temperature until emergency services arrive. To prevent heat stroke and other heatrelated incidents this summer, follow these steps to stay safe in the heat: â&#x2013;  Wear loose-fitting, light-weight clothing. â&#x2013;  Rest frequently when outside and seek shade when possible. â&#x2013;  Avoid exercise or strenuous physical activity. â&#x2013;  Drink plenty of fluids every day.

Experience Fort Sanders Center for Digestive Health Getting tested for digestive disorders may not be fun in anyoneâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s book, but at the Fort Sanders Center for Digestive Health, these procedures are as quick, comfortable and painless as possible. The Fort Sanders Center for Digestive Health is now open at 1819 Clinch Ave. in Knoxville. Adjacent to Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, the beautiful 6,000-squarefoot outpatient Center is equipped with state-of-the-art technology to diagnose and treat a wide range of digestive disorders. The Center for Digestive Health specializes in gastrointestinal and colon cancer screenings. The facility is all digital, with high deďŹ nition, wider ďŹ eld of vision scopes that make diagnosis quicker and more accurate. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The HD images are so much crisper and allow us to visualize details in the colon better and see lesions more clearly,â&#x20AC;? explains gastroenterologist Dr. Robert Pollack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s like the difference between analog and high-def TV â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it makes a huge impact.â&#x20AC;? In addition to the technology, patients and families also enjoy the Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s spacious waiting room with beautiful mountain views. And the whole layout is designed with efďŹ ciency and comfort in mind. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a huge improvement in efďŹ ciency and ďŹ&#x201A;ow,â&#x20AC;? says Center manager Kelly Rogers, RN. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s one-stop shopping for patients and their families. Everything is

to patients having bronchoscopies. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The staff and physicians are excited for people to experience the expanded GI facilities at Fort Sanders Regional,â&#x20AC;? says Fort Sanders gastroenterologist Dr. Jeffrey Brown. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The upgrades and updates have enhanced the experience for patients.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a giant step forward,â&#x20AC;? agrees Dr. Pollack. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Patients will still have the same excellent GI care theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve always received at Fort Sanders, but now it will be a totally new experience.â&#x20AC;?

The outpatient Fort Sanders Center for Digestive Health is designed to maximize patient comfort and convenience.

conveniently located together in one spot.â&#x20AC;? The Center for Digestive Health includes three GI procedure rooms, as well as an eight-bay preprocedure area and six-bay recovery suite. â&#x20AC;&#x153;And when a procedure is complete, physicians meet with families in one of our private conference rooms,â&#x20AC;? says Rogers. After testing, patients go home

Everyone has occasional heartburn, bloating, diarrhea or constipation. But when those symptoms persist, they may be signs of signiďŹ cant digestive disease. Digestive diseases affect an estimated 70 million people in the United States each year, according to the National Institutes of Health. Two digestive diseases that are common in the United States are colon cancer and GERD, gastroesophageal reďŹ&#x201A;ux disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These two are among the most important to screen patients for,â&#x20AC;? says Fort Sanders gastroenterologist Dr. Muhammed Iqbal.

Colonoscopy guidelines

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention recommends colonoscopy screening every 10 years, beginning at age 50 through age 75, as a way to prevent colorectal cancer. People at higher risk of developing colorectal cancer should begin screening at a younger age and be screened more frequently. Check with your physician about when to have a colonoscopy if you have a family history of colorectal disease.

the same day. Parking is easy with available valet parking or garage parking with direct elevator access to the Center. The previous Fort Sanders Endoscopy Lab, located inside Fort Sanders Regional, remains open, but will now focus on high risk gastrointestinal inpatient and outpatient procedures. The lab will continue to provide service

Colon Cancer â&#x20AC;&#x201C; screening is critical Although itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s declining, colon cancer is still the second leading cause of cancer deaths in the United States. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Colon cancer deaths have decreased because there is effective screening and better treatments,â&#x20AC;? Dr. Iqbal explains. The gold standard for screening for colon cancer is a colonoscopy, a simple procedure that allows a physician to see inside a patientâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s colon and rectum. The test is offered at the new Fort Sanders Center for

pletely and safely removed during colonoscopy, therefore preventing cancer,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Iqbal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Colonoscopy saves lives.â&#x20AC;? Colonoscopy screening is recommended for everyone at age 50, and every 10 years after that if the test is normal. For people with family history of colon cancer, or patients who have had cancer themselves, earlier and more frequent screening is recommended.

Digestive Health located on Clinch Avenue in Knoxville. While the patient is under mild sedation, the physician inserts a thin, flexible, lighted tube into the rectum and colon. The tube uses air to temporarily inflate the colon, while the camera relays an image to a nearby computer screen. If there are any precancerous lesions called polyps in the intestine, they can be removed during the test. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Precancerous polyps can be com-

GERD â&#x20AC;&#x201C; There IS relief

The second most common digestive test is GERD screening. â&#x20AC;&#x153;GERD is gastroesophageal reflux disease,â&#x20AC;? says Dr. Iqbal. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when the stomach contents back up into esophagus.â&#x20AC;? GERD doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t usually indicate a problem if it only occurs occasionally. â&#x20AC;&#x153;But if itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s persistent, if you have difficulty swallowing or if you have weight loss, it needs to be evaluated,â&#x20AC;? advises Dr. Iqbal. GERD can sometimes be a symptom of other conditions such as asthma, esophageal cancer

or a precancerous condition called Barrettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s esophagus. Men, especially Caucasian men, develop Barrettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s esophagus more often than other groups. This is when acid from the stomach backs up into the esophagus, causing damage. Testing for GERD is done with an endoscope, a thin, flexible tube inserted down the mouth while the patient is under sedation. The tube has a small camera on it, giving the physician a view of the esophagus on a computer screen. Iqbal said any recurring

heartburn, belly pain, bloody stools or black stools and unexplained weight loss should be evaluated by a physician. â&#x20AC;&#x153;These are common problems that can often be treated very easily and effectively,â&#x20AC;? states Dr. Iqbal.

If you want to do the right thing by spay/neutering your pet or a stray, YoungWilliams Animal Center can help in every possible way. “Call us,” Johnston pleads. “If you’re feeding a stray cat and her kittens, it’s the best thing you can do for them. If you don’t have enough money to do so, we can help.” In addition to providing guidance for such services, the animal center also has a pet retention program. “The shelter is your last A beautiful calico reaches for the camera as if to say “Choose me!”

By Carol Zinavage

Here’s the good news: intake and euthanasia rates at Young-Williams Animal Center have been trending down ever so slightly for the past few years. The bad news is that those falling rates have mostly to do with dogs, and Young-Williams is currently overrun with cats and kittens. Since the first of July, they’ve taken in 347 of them. It’s summer, and felines are reproducing like crazy. “With kittens and cats,” says Amy Johnston, “we’re

resort,” Johnston stresses. “We are committed to helping families keep the pets they have.” There’s a pet pantry which offers pet food to qualifying families, and the Young-Williams website provides a link to the ASPCA’s chat line for behavioral issues. Johnson reiterates, “We’ll do anything – anything at all – to help.” Right now the YoungWilliams cats need homes, and I’m here to tell you that cats make wonderful pets. All my pets – four cats and one dog – are shelter animals, and my two cats from Young-Williams are the best I’ve ever had. There are several reasons for this. Young-Williams puts each animal through a screening process to make sure it has the potential to make a good pet. First behavioral, then medical assessments are made. The next step is encouraging human-animal bonding. Young-Williams has an extraordinary network of foster families and volunteers who give each animal individual attention and care. They’re the ones who teach the shelter pets to love us humans. And love us they do. How sweet it is to be greeted at the door after a long hard day by a beautiful creature that softly pads up to you and nuzzles

your leg. Who makes you laugh until you cry at her antics, and nestles in the crook of your back while you nap. Cynics will say, “They act that way because they know you’ll give them food.” So? Who cares? Besides, my cats can get at their food 24 hours a day; they don’t have to go the extra mile. Yet they do, every single day. Cats are clean and low maintenance. Unlike dogs, you can leave them alone for extended periods of time during the day. A sunny windowsill will keep them happy for hours. And as far as being a cat person or a dog person, well, you may be one or the other, but Amy Johnston concurs that it’s possible to be both. Right now adoption fees for cats and kittens are drastically reduced. Prices that normally start at $150 are now at $50 for a kitten, $25 for a cat, and $10 for a senior cat. And what a bargain those prices are! They include spay/neutering, microchipping, vaccines and a combo medical test. How about adopting a small companion who will give you much joy? Won’t you consider saving a life? For more info, call YoungWilliams Animal Center at 215-6599 or visit www. Send story suggestions to news@
