By Jake Mabe Knox County Watershed Coordinator Roy Arthur says that Beaver Creek qualifies as a blueway under unofficial criteria. “There are no official criteria,” Arthur says, “exRoy Arthur cept for ones established by organizations such

as the Sierra Club.” Arthur says the four unofficial criteria are: 1. The waterway is designated as “waters of state,” i.e. the state owns the water. 2. The waterway has to be navigable by small watercraft. Debris jams must be taken down. 3. The waterway has to have launch points. 4. The waterway has no posted water hazards (bacteria like e coli).

“Beaver Creek meets all four criteria. A final decision to designate it as such will have to be made by Knox County.” Arthur said the county is exploring a first phase, which would be from Harrell Road Park to Northwest Sports Park in Karns, “to see how that goes.” “Then a second phase might be from Clayton Park in Halls to Dry Gap Pike. “There are about 40 miles of Beaver Creek’s main stem that

are navigable. So, you could potentially have a blueway that entire length. Wouldn’t that be wonderful to put in at Clayton Park and kayak all the way to Melton Hill Lake? Some of it even has rapids.” Arthur says no tax dollars are being spent on the exploratory project and that county employees are clearing debris jams in their spare time. “That also has a positive effect on flooding.”

The Cavett Station Massacre A new look at an old story Charles Faulkner slowed his Prius to a crawl as he topped the ridge on Broome Road a short distance from Middlebrook Pike. This, he said, is probably where the Cherokee scouts stood early on the morning of Sept. 25, 1793, and spotted smoke from the fireplace of Alexander Cavett’s fortified cabin in the woods below. They were part of a massive war party – said to number 1,000 warriors – who had marched all night, bypassing Campbell Station to stay on schedule to launch a dawn attack on Knoxville, which was sparsely defended and could not have withstood such an assault. Ravenous mosquitos are the only danger facing modern day visitors to the old Mars Hill graveyard a short distance below the spine of the ridge. Contrary to the inscription on the monument placed there in 1921 by the Tennessee Sons of the Revolution, Faulkner is quite certain that this spot wasn’t the site of the Cavett Station massacre, where 11 Cavett family members and two militia sent by John Sevier

to protect them were slaughtered. He believes the cabin stood some distance down the hill, just above one of several springs that form Sinking Creek and are now hidden behind the well-kept homes at the entrance to the Cavett Station subdivision, a few yards west of the intersection of Alexander Cavett Drive and Doublehead Lane. “My wife, kids and all kinds of people went out there to help. We worked for two summers doing shovel testing, digging holes on a grid, down to the subsoil. We didn’t find it. The location is rather vague, but there’s still enough information that we knew the approximate location. That area is covered with subdivisions now,” Faulkner said. He has written a new book (his fourth), called “Massacre at Cavett Station: Frontier Tennessee during the Cherokee Wars,” published by the University of Tennessee Press. It’s already available on Amazon and will be in bookstores soon. In it, he debunks old rumors and presents a balanced view, including the grievances of the Cherokee, who had been driven by a series of land grabs and betrayals at the hands of the whites to unite with the more militant Creeks and the Chickamauga Cherokee from

Alabama, North Georgia and the Chattanooga area. “The Indians did not buy or sell land, and the chiefs did not have authority to sign papers selling or giving away land, but some of them did it anyway, and the next thing they knew, here came the white people. The Indians thought when they signed treaties, white people could come farm, but they did not have a concept of private property. That was totally foreign to them,” Faulkner said. This came after the turmoil of the Revolutionary War, when the

Cherokee sided with the British and split into two groups, one of which opposed giving up land and making peace. “They split off from the main group and went down to the Chattanooga area and became the Chickamauga. The Overhill Cherokee attempted to maintain peace with the whites,” Faulkner said. In 1788, First Beloved Man and principal chief Old Tassel and Chief Abraham were attempting to make peace with the State of To page A-3

Harvesting rainwater at Halls High Halls High School horticulture teacher Mike Blankenship was all smiles last Thursday as he stood in the sweltering heat of an August afternoon.

Jake Mabe MY TWO CENTS He was there, along with government representatives who regulate stormwater runoff, to take a sneak peek at the Beaver Creek Task Force’s last project funded by a $1 million grant it secured five years ago – a cistern/rainwater harvesting system at the Halls High greenhouse. Professionally installed by Rainwater Resources, a Knoxville-owned family company in business for 15 years, the system’s highlight is a Visy ™ water

vortex system that will allow water runoff from the roof to be filtered and reused to water plants both inside the greenhouse and in raised beds outside. Rainwater Resources president/principal owner Denis Rochat says his company is privileged to be involved with the project. He gave a tour and brief demonstration of the system, starting with the tank located behind the greenhouse. “What you’re looking at is something that has the ability to have 1,500 gallons of water sit in the tank in the heat of summer or in the cold of winter, maintained in clear, slime-free, odor-free conditions, and use it for anything – irrigation, greenhouse use, industrial use, even potable residential use. “Rainwater harvesting is all about use – detain and store water for future use.” After it leaves the tank, the water passes through

an ultraviolet system that filters the water so that it is 100 percent safe should anyone inhale it, Rochat says, “and by 100 percent safe, I mean that there are no microbiological issues that will make anyone sick.” Rochat says the system will allow Blankenship to use either cistern water or city water at the greenhouse. Rainwater Resources vice president of industry relations Vince Guarino says the company has also installed such systems in high-end residential homes and by the end of the month will have installed two systems at Ijams Nature Center. “The EPA rules are now so strict and specific about Rainwater Resources president/principal owner Denis Rochat shows off the tank for the new cisnew construction over tern system that has been installed at the greenhouse at Halls High School.

Cavett Station

Charles Faulkner stands behind the monument to the memory of the Cavett Station massacre. Photos by Betty Bean Franklin when they were murdered under a flag of truce by forces under the command of John Sevier. This enraged the Cherokee nation and drove the Overhill closer to the warlike Chickamauga and their leader, Dragging Canoe. Skirmishes continued on the frontier for the next 5 years, boiling over in June 1793 when Indians killed a settler couple and militia forces tracked some of the perpetrators to the home of Old Tassel’s successor, Hanging Maw. The militia then launched an unprovoked attack on Hanging Maw’s house, killing a dozen people and wounding the principal chief, who, like Old Tassel, had advocated peace with the white settlers. “When it came to treatment of Indians, the militias, in many cases, were just as brutal as Indians were. They took a lot of land and killed a lot of Indians. There really was no con-

From page A-1 trol,” Faulkner said. In September, Chief John Watts got an army together and set out to avenge the raid on Hanging Maw by attacking Knoxville. War chiefs James Vann, Bob Benge and the murderous Doublehead shared command. They underestimated the time it would take to get to town, and when they found themselves eight miles west of James White’s settlement at dawn, they settled for an assault on Cavett Station. Some reports said they panicked when they heard distant cannon fire and thought that they’d lost the element of surprise. Whatever the reason, they decided to pluck the low-hanging fruit. Amazingly, the settlers, led by Alexander Cavett and two Sullivan County militia members – Francis Bowery and John Spurgeon – held off the initial assault. “The Indians sent Bob Benge in with a white flag, saying ‘If you surrender, we will spare your lives.’ So they decided to surrender, and when they came out, the Indians killed them all, except for the little boy,” Faulkner said. Watts was powerless to stop the ferocious Doublehead, who set upon the Cavetts and hacked them to pieces. Neighbors who buried the remains reported finding 13 dismembered bodies on the ground and human intestines draped on the wooden fence. Recordkeeping was sketchy in those days, noting only the deaths of the men, so it is uncertain exactly who else died, although they were probably Cavett’s children.

The 5-year-old boy was only temporarily spared, and was probably taken off to Alabama and murdered a few days later by the Creeks, although some reports say that Doublehead tomahawked him after he was placed on a horse by a Creek warrior (thus giving rise to the derisive nickname “Babykiller,” bestowed by his appalled fellow Cherokee). Faulkner believes that Alexander Cavett’s wife, Susanna, probably died the year before. Watts, Vann and Benge were all sons of white fathers, a trend that became more noticeable over time. Faulkner said Benge, a redhead, was particularly feared among the settler population, who called him “Bench,” invoking his name as a bogeyman to frighten children into submission. Of the four chiefs, only Watts would die a natural death. Doublehead was murdered by his own people. The graves in the Mars Hill cemetery are oddly arranged, with the newer ones up front and the burial sites of Alexander Cavett’s brother Moses and wife, Agnes, next to a large oval-shaped section that is now overgrown and dominated by a mature hemlock tree. Someone who used to tend to the graveyard told Faulkner that there’s a good-sized depression where the soil is soft beneath the overgrowth. And that, Faulkner believes, is the gravesite of the murdered Cavett family, whose deaths probably saved the residents of the new city of Knoxville from a similar fate.

McIntyre asks board to terminate four teachers

Education reform: Follow the money People out there are trying to make public schools look bad so private businesses can get control of public funds spent for education. That’s the take of state Rep. Gloria Johnson who spoke recently in Union County.

Sandra Clark When what’s now called history books are channeled, streamed or beamed 100 years from now, the prevailing themes of this century will be education reform. And cataclysmic change makes for fear, anger and unrest. That’s the state of public education in 2013. On one side are the well-todo, pushing for classroom technology and better outcomes. They bring business models to weigh and measure. They disregard tradition and are willing to boot low-performing teachers. On the other side is the education establishment, clinging to negotiated contracts and lifetime tenure with lockstep pay increases. Many are hesitant to embrace new methods like online learning. In the middle are parents

who simply want their kids to be safe and loved at school, to be accepted for who they are and not be bullied. Nobody is clamoring to pay a penny more. So Gloria Johnson, a teacher, says “overreach” to Nashville initiatives to eliminate tenure, step pay increases and collective bargaining. She calls for study before charter schools are established. “Why are some charters successful and some are not? Why are we holding up Milwaukee as a standard? They don’t take special education students and kick out kids who don’t behave. “We’ve got to increase our expenditure to schools that are struggling, and support community schools (such as Pond Gap) which stay open in evenings with meals, health services and learning opportunities for parents. “Yes, it costs more, but we can find community partners to share those costs.” Johnson blasted Teach for America, a group that offers a 5-week training program to bring professionals into teaching. State Education Commissioner Kevin Huffman is a former executive of the group. “We gave a $6.7 million contract to Teach for America to train 300 recruits per year,” Johnson said. “They are most likely not from Tennessee and most will go

State Rep. Gloria Johnson talks politics with Union County Democrats. Photo by S. Clark to work at Goldman Sachs or on to law school” after a short stint in the classroom.

Superintendent Jim McIntyre is recommending termination of four teachers when the school board meets Wednesday, Aug. 7, at 5 p.m. Daniel Cowden, Pamela Hunter, John Kulka and Danny Sanders are recom-

mended for termination. Sanders has 29 years with Knox County Schools. Also, McIntyre is recommending that the school board retain Michael Kelley of the law firm Kennerly, Montgomery & Finley as le-

gal counsel to the board. Kelley will charge $230 per hour, and the move could be resisted by Law Director Bud Armstrong. Kelley’s parents, Norma and the late Dr. Paul, were both educators.

Johnson said the Virtual Academy is a way for students “to get off the radar.” She has heard that K-12, the company that benefits from the state’s $14 million program, has told teachers “not to mark kids absent.” She alleged that an email was sent

asking teachers to “delete all failing grades.” She called the Michael Milken-founded K-12 a “massive money-making tool” and said two states, North Carolina and Colorado, have dropped it. “We will not improve

public schools by putting money into K-12 or Teach for America,” Johnson said. “We need to teach every kid in every ZIP code. We need to teach teamwork and problem-solving. Those are the skills that employers want.”

Briggs can’t assume an advantage No doubt County Commissioner Richard Briggs was pleased to have former County Commissioner Frank Leuthold agree to be his treasurer a few months back.

Victor Ashe

Little did he think it would lead to news and controversy which has hardly been helpful to his campaign to unseat state Sen. Stacey Campfield in the August 2014 Republican primary. (This writer is a donor to the Briggs campaign). That news is that Briggs has embraced and promoted the candidacy of Craig Leuthold to be named trustee by nominating him for the position. Leuthold is a perfectly nice person, but he has hardly set the woods on fire as a reformer in county government.

Many have questioned if it was a conflict for Briggs to vote for his campaign treasurer’s son to be county trustee. Dealing with these questions has detracted from Briggs’s main goal of unseating Campfield by forcing Briggs to defend his own record without Campfield saying a word. Leuthold says he will be transparent, and one place for him to start would be to release his tax returns and net worth. Campfield is a tireless campaigner as is Briggs. But he is also very shrewd in highlighting issues such as the recent robo calls from a pollster tied to Briggs. If a third candidate enters this state senate contest, then Campfield will benefit as he has in the past when there were three candidates. If it remains a two-way race, then Briggs has a more realistic shot at winning, but the past two weeks have not been good for Briggs. He will need to get beyond these issues and

point out why he would be a better state senator than the incumbent. He cannot assume any advantage. ■ Speaking of the county trustee, one wonders why it continues to exist as an elected office when it does not make policy. Recently, I had lunch with former county trustee and county executive Tommy Schumpert, who repeated prior statements that this office should be appointed by the county mayor. One wonders why a reform-minded county commissioner does not propose a charter amendment to submit to the voters to change the selection process for trustee. Let the voters of Knox County vote on this again in light of recent developments. ■ Beth Waters, who led the effort to build Fort Kid over 20 years ago, had a 20 minute talk with Mayor Rogero about the future of Fort Kid. A prior city Administration had decided to close Fort Kid without the knowledge of

a $60,000 trust fund which exists for the maintenance and improvement of Fort Kid. Rogero promised Waters to review the matter and get back to her. Surely the city will take advantage of this private fund with no cost to taxpayers. ■ The dedication of Loves Creek greenway on Aug. 1 was postponed due to threatening rain to an unknown time.

The history of

the uppin block MALCOLM’S CORNER | Malcolm Shell


ithout knowing a little about t r a n s p or t at ion in the 19th century, one might pay little attention to uppin blocks, anomalies located in front of houses and storefronts. Although they vary in size, most are about four feet square and about three feet in height. And most are either marble or granite with a step cut in the back. These curiosities are found in several locations in Old Concord, and as a child we often used them to play “King of the Hill.” But their real purpose was to enable ladies with their hoop skirts, many layers of undergarments and high heel shoes, to board carriages and horses in a more graceful manner without showing the lower part of their leg. Morality in the 19th century was a bit different than it is today, and only a “loose woman” would allow a man to see her ankle. Not every home had an uppin block. Indeed, only the most aff luent families could afford them, which made them a status symbol. Several years ago, I was conducting a tour of

the Village for a church group, and I overlooked the uppin blocks. Finally one of the ladies in the group said, “What’s that?” pointing to a rather large block in front of a home. I explained that they were called uppin blocks or platforms that allowed ladies to board carriages in a graceful manner. They wanted to stop the bus and try the block for themselves. Their next question was, “How did they come to be called uppin blocks?” For that question, I had no answer. The blocks also allowed women to remain on a boardwalk or other hard surface area without having to step into the street, which was either mud or dust depending on the weather. Of course, covered boardwalks between stores also kept the elements at bay. In Old Concord, much of the main commercial area was fronted by covered boardwalks and false fronts, just like in old western towns. From 1887 through about 1920, Concord’s economic underpinning depended on a large marble quarrying operation. It was also the transfer point for marble quarries

located further east along the river. By using large f lat barges, marble blocks could be f loated down the river, where they were transferred to trains for shipment throughout the eastern part of the country. I assume the origin of the blocks was from those quarries, and probably someone who had an affiliation with the quarries had a better chance of getting one. With the advent of the automobile, running boards made uppin blocks relics of the past. And the paving of road surfaces removed the danger of ruining a dainty pair of shoes by stepping in a mud puddle. And there can be little doubt these two changes – running boards and paved roads – deprived many men the opportunity to see a woman’s ankle. And to that end, it undoubtedly preserved the ladies’ good reputation and alleviated the possibility of being called a “loose woman.” Today, we have become so accustomed to hard surface roads, it’s hard to envision streets with deep ruts and standing water, but an 1890s photo of Old Concord shows those conditions. Stones were

I personally like 21st century women’s attire, and I doubt that any fashion designer would ever attempt to send a model down the runway dressed in a f loor-length dress with undergarments. But some might argue that female dress of that period would certainly have added a sense of “mystery of wonderment” that is not present today.

Looking ahead – with proper caution Butch Jones has spent so much time looking forward, pouring a foundation and building brick by brick, there just wasn’t much time left for looking back. The Tennessee coach may not realize what all happened at Vanderbilt on the evening of Nov. 17, 2012 – the end of an era, four consecutive touchdowns in the second half, a rout so bad the benevolent James Franklin told the mighty Commodores to take a knee to avoid running up the score. It was humiliating or whatever is worse than that. Thankfully, the late George Cafego was spared the pain. The old Vol genuinely hated Vandy. Tennessee’s collapse would have caused acute indigestion and severe anguish.

Marvin West

My vocabulary is limited. It does not contain Cafego expletives to properly describe what Vanderbilt did but it was among my very few truly awful football experiences. It was worse than no first downs against Auburn, worse than the Chattanooga riot, worse than the Jackson Massacre, worse than the North Texas State kick return. It would be good to put away that Vandy memory. It may not happen until the Vols do something to replace

it. At best that is weeks away. It could be months. Hold on just a minute, you say, Butch can do it. There is renewed enthusiasm! And hope. And maybe optimism. Some believe there may be a miracle hiding in the hurryup offense. The defense has no way to go but up. The honest outlook for this Tennessee team comes with caution and apprehension. There is no ready quarterback. Receivers are classified as maybe, perhaps and sometime. The two experienced running backs have averaged one touchdown every five games. A volleyball player tough enough to take over at tight end? Won’t that be something to see. The offensive line has battle scars. Veteran survivors

Movable mountains Then the disciples came to Jesus privately and said, “Why could we not cast (the demon) out?” He said to them, “Because of your little faith. For truly I tell you, if you have faith the size of a mustard seed, you will say to this mountain, ‘Move from here to there,’ and it will move; and nothing will be impossible for you.” (Matthew 17:20-21 NRSV) My mother says that since she was two years old (when her family moved from Union County to Knox County) she has never lived where she couldn’t see House Mountain. Admittedly, when my family lived in the house I grew up in, she had to look out an upstairs window to see it, but it was there. Somehow or other, it was a talisman of steadiness. It meant home to her. Like my mother, I check in with “my” mountain on a daily basis. It stands there, solid, sturdy, steady: a talisman of the security and order of my world. I look for it every

Cross Currents

Lynn Hutton time I go out the door. To be fair, some days I can see only its crest. Some days it disappears entirely, hiding in the mists. Even so, I know it is there. I believe it is there. It is an article of faith. In some ways, God is like that. There are days that God is, if not visible, at least palpable. I sense God’s presence and know with certainty, as

the poet said, that “God’s in His heaven and all’s right with the world.” God, like my mountain, is a constant for me: fully present, reassuring me, steadying me. There are other days (and I’m sure you have known days like this) that God seems to be distant, far away, hiding perhaps. Or at the very least, unconcerned. In my heart of hearts, I know that is not true. I’m like the woman who complained to her husband that they never sat close to each other in the car, as they had done when they were dating. (This was obviously in pre-seatbelt days!) There was silence for a moment, and then her husband said quietly, “Well, I’m not the one who moved!” When I can’t find God, when God seems to be hiding in the mists, like my

are 5-19 against Southeastern Conference foes. The defense does have a sense of direction. Last year there was none. Concerns to be resolved between now and Sept. 14 at Eugene, Ore., are pressure without constant blitzing, linebacker reads and speed and secondary stability. Just understanding assignments is a start. We are told that Tennessee’s defense looked decent to good in spring practice. What does that mean? The measurement was against Tennessee’s offense. We know there is room for improvement of special teams. Coaching can help. Michael Palardy faces potential overload. That warning aside, this August is an exciting time mountain, it is not because God has moved. It is because I have. I have not been paying attention, not been praying, not been immersing myself in Scripture. I have not been seeking God. And God, like a steadfast lover, does not demand my attention, but waits patiently, faithfully, until I find my way back. “I will lift up my eyes unto the hills,” the Psalmist wrote (Psalm 121:1). I lift up my eyes to the hills every day, because I need to do so. My mountain reassures me, reminds me of God’s presence and steadfastness. My mountain pares me down to size, reminding me of how small I am in God’s great scheme. My mountain reminds me that, in the same way I look for my mountain, I need to seek God. Every day. My mountain is, quite simply, home to me. Just like my mother’s mountain is for her. Just like God’s love.

in Tennessee football. The quarterback race is compelling. Jones says everybody gets a chance. It will be best if somebody wins decisively. How to do that? In addition to making a hundred crisp decisions, protecting the football, passing accurately and running some, planned or in self-defense, the coach says “managing” the scene is critical. I think that means the quarterback must help teammates avoid losing the game before they can win it. There is a glaring lack of depth at running back. Offensive linemen were slighted in preseason all-star voting (not that it matters). Receivers may be more promising than you have heard. A superb defensive performance will likely provide Tennessee’s best chance to beat somebody big. Astute scouting, a better game plan, a brilliant effort by A.J. John-

son, a timely pick by Justin Coleman or Brian Randolph might do it. A web gem is more likely than a series of 80-yard drives. Johnson is a key to team success. Thirteen times in 24 games he has had 10 or more tackles. Tennessee was 62nd in the USA Today preseason poll. That is too low. The media vote closer to home says fifth in the SEC East, below Georgia, Florida, South Carolina and Vanderbilt. I say fourth based on improved organization and extra effort. A royal decree by tackle Tiny Richardson says there shall be no Commodore celebration on Shields-Watkins Field. That takes care of that.

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers

Freels enjoys getting ‘under students’ skin’ By Betty Bean One of Powell High School art teacher Lee Jenkins-Freels’ first experiences with an exceptionally talented student presented a special challenge. She was at South-Doyle then, and had a student who specialized in beautiful environmental photographs of Cades Cove. He had already won great acclaim for his work, but Jenkins-Freels knew he could do more. “I’d say, ‘Cory, these are awesome pictures of Cades Cove, but do you ever do anything else?’ He’d say, ‘No, Freels, this is me.’ The thing was, I wanted him to stretch and grow so that when he left me, he’d know more than he knew coming in. So I kept after him, and as I began to get under his skin, he started taking the challenge. I told him, ‘If you don’t step outside the box, you’re not going to do very well in this class,’ so he went downtown and shot the Tennessee Theatre.” “He’d say, ‘You happy now?’ I’d say, ‘Not quite.’ ” Then, he started taking pictures of bands, and won a Dogwood Arts award. Now, he is a professional photographer. “He’d send me these messages, ‘You happy now?’ I’d say, ‘Can you send me half of that check?’ He reaized that if he was willing to step outside his comfort zone, he could do phenomenal things. He’s shot for Dolly Parton, done shots featured in National Geographic, because he was willing to step outside the box.” Known simply as “Freels” to her colleagues and students, she came to teaching later in life than most, and even though high school art teachers don’t make as much money as merchandizing managers at J.C. Penney, she says she’s never looked back. “It’s the best job ever. Sometimes the kids are tough, and sometimes the parents are tougher than the kids. But it gives you an opportunity to revisit your youth. I see a lot of fearlessness in my high school kids – that want and need to put themselves out there through their art. And as an art teacher, I feel like my job is to help students use those higher order thinking skills to think through problems and figure them out,” said JenkinsFreels, who doesn’t believe her job is teaching kids to draw pretty pictures. “As students take those tests in other classes, they’ll come back and and find out there are things that I as an art teacher can help them think through. I’m not a huge fan of ‘teach to the test.’ I want students

to see something and say, ‘Gee, I remember that, and I can apply it here.’ We have the opportunity to expose our students to so many things. We’re hands-on. We have our lessons and we go over the lessons, but we encorporate math, social studies, science and English. We do writing. After they’ve created this artwork, I want them to be able to write about it. So I’m more a fan of ‘Do I have the basic skills to apply to the test that I’m being given?’ than teaching to the test. Sometimes I feel like we’re so ‘teach to the test’ driven that kids don’t get it.” Jenkins-Freels, who is married to Jim Freels and has three children between the ages of 9 and 20 – Wyatt, Hunter and Taylor – lives on a farm in Claxton and knows how to drive a truck, throw hay and shoot a gun. She earned an art degree at the University of the Cumberlands and went straight to work for J. C. Penney, rising through the organization and doing a lot of traveling. “As senior visual merchandising manager, I incorporated all the things I had studied in art school – layout, design, planning. I opened new stores all over the U.S. and Puerto Rico, and it was challenging, but the hours were long and taxing. The wear and tear on your body is overwhelming after awhile. In 2005, Penney’s bought me out. I started teaching at South-Doyle while I went back to school and got my master’s.” When she gives an assignment, she sometimes talks about the elements of art and principles of design, but she believes there’s a better way: “I need to show them how it applies to them. The biggest question I get is, ‘How will I use art ever again? I’m not going to be an art teacher.’” But that’s OK, Jenkins-Freels says. While she does want to help them hone their technical skills (she thinks each of her students should be able to draw a recognizable selfportrait by the end of the year, for example), she considers other things more important. “I want them to question things – ‘How is this going to help me?’ I want them to approach it in a way that they can figure it out. Great art is not photorealism every day. I might sit down with them as they’re having their conversations and listen to what they’re talking about. One student was talking about his car that he was restoring. So I asked him how he could apply art to his car.

Powell High School art teacher Lee Jenkins-Freels Photos by R. White

“‘Tell me how you’re having your car painted. How’d you know to do that? Not only are you using color, you’re using composition. You’re using art to create your work of art – your car.’ No, he couldn’t do photorealism, but he could do this piece of sculptured art work that he drove in and was proud of every day. I want it to be more than an art credit. I want every kid to walk away with something.” Zachary Henry, who was Powell’s valedictorian this year, knows exactly what she’s talking about. He, his mother and Jenkins-Freels just returned from an all-expense paid trip to New York City that he won for a drawing representing Tennessee. He said he would never even have entered the contest without her prodding.

Knox County Council PTA

Zachary Henry “She’s a pusher,” he said. “She called me in on a Thursday and said ‘here’s this contest I want you to do. It’s due Tuesday.’ I sat at home non-stop, drawing all weekend. She kept pushing. I love Ms. Freels. She’s pretty much part of my family. She’s the one who has pushed me to be the artist I am today.”

Dental Answers Dr. Steven C. Crippen Question: “I have recently noticed that my gums bleed when I brush my teeth. Could this be a sign of serious health problems?� Answer: Sometimes bleeding gums can indeed be a sign of health problems in the mouth or other parts of the body. Most often such bleeding is indicative of some degree of gum disease (gingivitis or periodontitis), which can usually be treated successfully in the dental office. Periodontitis, the more severe type of gum disease, can lead to loss

of some or all of the teeth if dental care is not started soon enough. Gum disease also has been found recently to be associated with a greater incidence of heart disease, diabetes, and stroke. I would strongly recommend a dental visit soon for an examination of your teeth and gums. Questions for “Dental Answers� are welcomed and should be sent to our address at 7409 Temple Acres Drive, Knoxville, TN, 37938.

Jason Brown and Bobby Swisher suited up to go “underground.” Photo submitted

Luttrell Rangers face the best By Libby Morgan Things get pretty technical when you’re preparing for a rescue mission. Underground. With the threat of death by breathing. Or by megatons of earth falling on you. Preparation is paramount to a successful mine rescue, and there is a global brotherhood (nonexclusive to gender) of people dedicated to the study, the practice and the recognition of the best techniques to save lives underground. The Luttrell Rangers of Carmeuse Mine are traveling to Reno, Nev., after qualifying at local and regional competitions to show off their mine rescue readiness. Our local rangers are fairly new to the game of rescue team competitions. Ten team members plus mine manager Harold Collins have been working to compete for only two years. In that short time, they have formed the team from volunteers, gotten fully equipped, and learned every detail of mine safety and rescue. And won second place in the regionals and first place in Caryville recently, under the careful scrutiny of competition judges.

Competitions are held above-ground in simulated mine conditions, and points count against the team. The team’s “canary,” a handheld device for measuring the level of gases, must be calibrated accurately. Equipment must be in perfect working order, and team members must be experts in its use. Five members of the team are “underground,” notating and relaying conditions to the briefing station, where conditions and measurements are also written on a “map.” Both maps must match exactly to avoid points. The underground team wears full protective gear, with a 40-pound BG4 apparatus on their back, dragging a communication line, with the members tethered together. First aid specialists are on each team, ready to come to the aid of a “victim.” Real people volunteer to be “injured,” and procedures for treating and transporting them are judged. “If we were to have an emergency at any mine in the area, our team is ready. These competitions allow us

to feel comfortable and to know what we’re doing going in to a rescue situation,” says Collins. “We’re really proud of our guys. They’re all volunteers and they work long hours to prepare. “Each team member plays a critical part.” Carmeuse in Luttrell is a limestone mine, supplying the crushed stone for many uses including water treatment, making mortar and paper, and, surprisingly, for spreading on walls of coal mines to reduce the possibility of fire. The Luttrell mine is one of the company’s 100 production sites around the world. Debbie Perry of Carmeuse says, “We have 95 employees here, with no turnover. This is a 24-hour operation. “Carmeuse has invested a lot of money in support of our Luttrell Rangers team, and our guys have met the challenge to become a topnotch team.” The team was on its first day of the competition in Reno at press time.

Evening of Elegance

Carpenter gets perfect score

First Tennessee to sponsor fundraiser By Pam Fansler First Tennessee Bank is proud to be a platinum sponsor for the 24th a n n u a l Evening of Elegance in Pink presented by the Dr. Robert F. T h o m a s Fansler Foundation. The black-tie optional event benefits Paint the Mountains Pink, which helps provide mammograms to those in Sevier County who cannot afford them. Dr. Robert F. Thomas came to Sevier County in 1926 to serve in the dual role of minister and family physician. He established clinics, immunized hundreds of adults and children, set broken bones and delivered countless babies. Dr. Thomas loved the rich heritage of the Smokies and admired the integrity and pride of its people. He

Mark Carpenter is a student in the Heating, Ventilation, Air Conditioning and Refrigeration (HVAC/R) Technology program at Tennessee College of Applied Technology. He recently took the EPA 608 exam and passed with a perfect 100 percent. The test includes 100 questions from a test bank of 400. HVAC/R instructor Mike Sledzinski said, “In the time I’ve been here at the school, which includes my time as a student and now as an instructor, I don’t remember anyone making a perfect 100 percent.” Passing the EPA 608 exam will give Carpenter universal certification, allowing him to buy and sell refrigerant and service equipment. The certification is mandatory for any technician to work in the HVAC/R field.

is felt on a breast self-exam. Based on these findings, the American Cancer Society recommends a yearly mammogram for women starting at age 40. However, in any given year, only 50 percent of women aged 40-85 have a mammogram. Women don’t get their annual screening because they are uninsured or have a low income or because they are uneducated regarding the importance of early detection. In Sevier County, 21 percent of women are uninsured, ranking 94 out of 95 counties in Tennessee.

worked long hours to improve the inadequate medical services and health facilities he encountered. Named in his honor, the Dr. Robert F. Thomas Foundation is a nonprofit organization established in 1983 to help expand the range and quality of health care services available in Sevier County. The Foundation is governed by an 18-member volunteer board of directors. Dolly Parton, one of the many babies Dr. Thomas delivered, serves as honorary chair. Paint the Mountains Pink spreads the word about the importance of mammography and early detection and helps educate the community that mammograms truly save lives. The numbers are compelling. One in eight women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in her lifetime. Mammograms alone find 85-90 percent of breast cancers, and mammography can detect cancer up to two years before it

Close to home and close to the heart It was in the middle of the night in late June when Catherine Miles, 86, woke up to extreme nausea. She thought maybe it was a stomach virus, but never suspected a heart attack. “I was sick to my stomach all night. But I had no chest pains,” said Miles, who lives in Knoxville with her daughter and son-in-law, Ivee and John Slater. When the first morning light came up, Miles was worried her family would go off to work. “I didn’t want to be left alone,” she said. But, there was no chance of that. Ivee Slater said she took one look at her mother and knew right away she needed emergency care. “I said, ‘Sister, you’ve got to get out of here!’ ” said Slater. “There was nothing in the house that would make her feel better, so we had to go. I wasn’t going to sit there and let my mother hurt. “But of course she had to put her perfume, earrings and her cross on, and do her hair,” Ivee Slater said with a laugh. The Slaters took Miles to the emergency department at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center, just a few minutes from their home. It was around 6 a.m. when they arrived. Heart attacks are less likely to be recognized in women than men. While men most often have classic chest pain symptoms, women are more likely to experience atypical symptoms such as nausea or sweating with a heart attack. But at Fort Sanders Regional, emergency room staff right away gave Miles an electrocardiogram (EKG), a test to detect abnormal electrical activity in the heart. “Evidently they are experts at knowing when something’s wrong,” said Miles. “They right off said, ‘It’s the heart.’ ” The emergency department called in Dr. Joshua Todd, an interventional cardiologist Catherine Miles talks with Renee Hammett while at the cardiac rehabilitation program at Fort with Knoxville Heart Group. Fort Sanders Sanders Regional Medical Center.

Regional has cardiologists on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week, all living within a short drive of the hospital. “Dr. Todd and his team, somebody must be on duty at all times, because that team came right in and did the job,” said Miles. Miles was sent up to the heart catheterization lab. “They took her back right away,” said Ivee Salter. “By the time my husband got back from parking the car, they were starting the procedure. It was so fast, it was done in 45 minutes.” Miles had a 100 percent blockage in her right coronary artery. Todd inserted a slender catheter (a tube) into the main artery in her groin and threaded it up to the heart, without cutting open the chest. He found and removed the clot in her heart, and inserted a tiny mesh stent to hold open the artery in that spot. After two nights in the hospital, Miles came home. She is currently attending the cardiac rehabilitation program at Fort Sanders to regain strength and endurance, and she is walking every day again for exercise. “She used to walk a half-mile on UT’s track every night,” said Slater. “We’ve got ourselves back up to a quarter-mile, almost.” “We’re doing protein powder in the morning and a gluten-free diet, a blood thinner and vitamin K,” said Slater. “I’ve lost 12 pounds along with her!” Miles said she would recommend Fort Sanders to anyone who needs cardiac care. “Everybody, really they were wonderful, they were wonderful,” Miles added. “I felt blessed to be so near to home, and here.” And, she credits her daughter for her quick thinking. “She has been a blessing to me.”

Finding exceptional heart care at Fort Sanders Regional The average age for a woman to have a first heart attack is 70, according to the National Institutes of Health. “There are not a lot of 86-yearolds who have a heart attack,” said Dr. Joshua Todd, an interventional cardiologist at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center. He recently treated Catherine Miles, Dr. Joshua Todd 86, (see accompanying article) for a heart attack. “She walked a half a mile a day. She had no past cardiac history, very few cardiac risk factors and very atypical symptoms. She never had chest pain at all,” said Todd. “And that’s the problem with only looking at symptoms and not at the patient,” he added. “Mrs. Miles just wasn’t herself. It takes an astute emergency room doctor to pick up on that.” Miles’ heart attack was quickly detected in the emergency room at Fort Sanders Regional by an EKG. They sent her to the cardiac

catheterization lab and Todd. Todd threaded a slender catheter into her femoral artery (in the groin) and up to her heart. Using high-tech X-ray images to guide the catheter, Todd found the blood clot that was causing the heart attack and removed the clot using a suction catheter. “I gave her a picture of it later,” Todd said with a laugh. He then inserted a tiny mesh stent into the artery, to keep it open and blood flowing to the heart muscle. The stent remains in place. While cardiac catheterization procedures like this one are minimally invasive, they must be done very quickly during a heart attack, to minimize damage to the heart muscle. The longer an artery is blocked, the more the heart is damaged. Angioplasty is the most common procedure performed to open a blocked artery. It is performed with a tiny balloon-like device inserted through the catheter and expanded in the artery to open it. “Our average door-to-balloon time at Fort Sanders Regional is 42 minutes, and the national standard is 90 minutes,” said

Todd. “In Mrs. Miles’ case, she had an EKG quickly in the emergency room and the artery was opened within 57 minutes.” In addition to speed in treatment, Fort Sanders Regional has one of the most comprehensive cardiac services in the Knoxville area. It was the first to use the Impella Left Ventricular Assist Device, the “world’s smallest heart pump,” which can be inserted to provide support for failing hearts without cutting open the chest wall. Fort Sanders Regional’s Cardiology Department is also the recipient of the 2012 American College of Cardiology Foundation’s NCDR ACTION Registry® – 2012 GWTG™ Platinum Performance Achievement Award. FSRMC is one of just 164 hospitals nationwide to receive this designation. The award recognizes the hospital’s commitment and success in implementing a higher standard of care for heart attack patients. Honored hospitals have maintained a rate of performance of 90 percent or better for eight consecutive quarters, ending quarter four in 2011.

Get heart healthy! Physical exercise and a heart-healthy diet are keys to preventing and recovering from heart disease, according to the American Heart Association. Some more heart healthy recommendations: ■ ■ ■ ■

Don’t smoke Maintain a healthy weight Get daily moderate exercise Eat a healthy diet, low in saturated fats, processed sugar and sodium, and high in fiber ■ Eat five fruits and vegetables each day ■ Know your numbers for blood pressure, cholesterol and blood sugar, and manage high levels with medication if necessary

A large life This week we take a look at a brilliant artist who is no longer with us. Her paintings are soon to be featured in a special memorial exhibit at The Art Market Gallery in downtown Knoxville. Her name was Patricia Sprouls, and she lived a large life. She was born in the Bronx, but spent much of her childhood on the Isle of Capri, later living in Naples, Italy, as well as New Jersey and New York, before coming to Tennessee in 1987. Through it all, she painted. As a young woman, she was awarded “Best Foreign Art Student” in all of Italy, winning a full scholarship to Naples’ Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Trapped in Italy during World War II, she survived the bombing of her apartment building. Finally able to return to the States in 1947, she married Joe Sprouls, a former typographer who now lives in Norris, in 1948. Together they raised two children, Timothy and Cynthia. “She was an artist all her life,” says Joe. “Her mother was an artist, and her

Carol’s Corner grandfather was a sculptor, so it just ran in the family.” She exhibited in New York City and New Jersey, and held many positions of leadership, including president of the state chapter of the American Artists Professional League and later board member of that organization at the national level. She taught at the Ridgewood Art Institute of New Jersey, one of the nation’s best community art associations. She served on the board of the Catherine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club in New York City, and was one of the first women to become a member of the prestigious Salmagundi Club in New York City, the nation’s oldest art club.

nessee. And that brings us to the reason you need to know about this remarkable artist. The Art Market Gallery on Gay Street is preparing a special memorial exhibition in celebration of East Tennessee’s history and in conjunction with the East Tennessee History Center’s History Fair on Aug. 17. It’s titled “Painted Glimpses of Olde Knoxville,” and it features several works by the illustrious Patricia Sprouls. “Her delicately-wrought paintings possess a wonderful storybook quality,” says Diana Scott-Auger, publicity co-chair for the event. “She illustrated local historic structures, bringing them back in time by including people in period dress going about their daily lives within the paintings. She often even had them spilling over the edges of the pictures!” Artist Brenda Mills, who is organizing and hanging the exhibit, counts Sprouls as a major influence in her life. “She was a fabulous sweet lady and was always so encouraging to anyone she came in contact with,” Mills says. “She encouraged me to enter the Catharine Lorillard Wolfe Art Club annual juried exhibition.” Mills was pleased and

proud to be juried in to the prestigious organization, established in New York in 1896 to support and promote the work of professional women artists. “I never would have considered entering had she not been cheering me on. I got a fabulous trip to New York and memories to last a lifetime.” Patricia Sprouls died in 2011 at age 90, and Mills has been eager to have an exhibit of her work ever since. As for all of her mentor’s awards and distinctions, Painter Patricia Sprouls’ fanciful painting of the Victorian Mills says, “You’d never houses on 11th Street in Knoxville. Photo submitted know. She was very unassuming. She was truly a fine lady and artist.” Joe Sprouls concurs. “She was the finest person I ever met,” he says. “She loved everybody.” You can view the paintings of Patricia Sprouls and other artists from Aug. 17 to Sept. 2 at The Art Market Gallery. It’s located at 422 South Gay St., next to the Downtown Grill & Brewery, and a few doors away from Mast General Store. Hours are 11 a.m. to 6 p.m., Sprouls as a young woman.

‘Fun Fun on the Farm’ at 2013 Fair By Anne Hart


t’s all about kids at the Tennessee Valley Fair this year, starting with the 2013 theme, “Fun on the Farm,” and continuing with a number of events designed to help children learn and develop new skills. Thousands of youngsters attend the Fair each year to enjoy rides and funnel cakes, but the Fair is also a great learning environment. “Fun on the Farm” will emphasize the unique mixture of amusement, agriculture and East Tennessee heritage showcased annually at the event. Some of the special activities for children will last all ten days of the fair.

BHS students practice Mandarin in China By Wendy Smith Most kids go to summer camp to immerse themselves in a favorite hobby or sport. Ian Schomer went to summer camp to immerse himself in a new culture – on the other side of the world. Schomer is one of three Bearden High School students who attended a Chinese Bridge Summer Camp through the Confucius Institute at Middle Tennessee State University. The camp is sponsored by the Chinese Language Council International, an organization that promotes the understanding of Chinese language and culture, and admission preference is given to Chinese language students. Schomer, Reid Ramsey and Jake Grayson completed their second year of Mandarin Chinese last spring. There were five students in the class. Since Bearden doesn’t have a certified Mandarin teacher, classes from Hardin Valley Academy are viewed remotely on a smart board, and a personal supervisor who is fluent in Mandarin is on hand to answer questions. Schomer took the equivalent of two years of Latin, but changed to Mandarin in order to set himself apart on college applications. He was surprised by how much he enjoys the language. The 18 camp participants from Tennessee spent the first three days exploring Beijing. Stops included a jade Bearden High School Mandarin Chinese students Jake Grayson, factory, the Great Wall, and the iconic Bird’s Nest and Ian Schomer and Reid Ramsey enjoy the Xi Xi Wetlands Park in Water Cube built for the 2008 Summer Olympic Games.

den City and the Summer Palace. Everywhere they travelled, Schomer was struck by the vibrancy and intricacy of the architecture. From Beijing, the students traveled 800 miles south to Hangzhou, the capital of Zhejiang Province, on the highspeed Bullet Train. They spent five days in dormitories at Hangzhou Normal University, which partners with MTSU through the Confucius Institute. Part of each day was spent in language and culture classes. Language classes were intense because the teacher never spoke English, Schomer says, but the students benefitted from hearing “real world” Mandarin. Culture classes included lessons in tea-making, paper cutting and traditional Chinese music. All of the students, including the boys, participated in fan exercises. They also visited a Chinese high school and took day trips to nearby cities. The trip concluded in Shanghai, where the Knoxville students were wowed by the 1,535-foot Oriental Pearl Radio and TV Tower. Schomer enjoyed the experience of being a minority during the two-week trip. Each time the students posed for a group picture, a handful of locals would pull out phones to snap a picture of the visitors. “They love Americans, in general,” he says. He was surprised to see the strong Western influence in China, even in a city like Hangzhou, which isn’t a tourist destination. Most signs include English translations. It was a long way to go for summer camp, but in the end, it made the world seem a little smaller. “I found that people are not so different that we couldn’t understand each other,” he says. “The way people treat each other seems pretty universal.”

T-shirts and determination By Carol Zinavage Olivia Croft, a rising 6th grader at Montgomery Ridge Intermediate School in Maryville, knows how to turn disappointment into doing. Inspired by a magazine article about kids helping others, she did some research online and was drawn to the organization Habitat for Humanity, which partners with families in need to provide simple, decent affordable housing. Olivia was ready to get involved in a big way. That’s when the 11-yearold found out she was too young to be on the job site. For safety reasons, Habitat forbids anyone under 14 to be where the action is. Olivia was disappointed by the news, but was determined to stir up some Olivia Croft, age 11, cuts donated T-shirts into rags for use on action of her own. Further Habitat for Humanity job sites. Photos by Alice Croft

research turned up a volunteer opportunity she was more than suited for: collecting old T-shirts to be used as rags in Habitat building projects. “Our church always donates to causes,” says Olivia’s mother, Alice, of Broadway United Methodist in Maryville, “and we made an announcement in church that we were collecting T-shirts.” That announcement brought in a pile of shirts, and Olivia and her mom washed them and cut them to a usable size, then delivered them to the Blount County Habitat for Humanity office. “It was fun to know I was helping someone else,” says Olivia. Her mom says she’s always liked a challenge. Encouraged by a Sunday school teacher, one of her

Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s also a top-notch gymnast, having hauled in a load of medals at the State Gymnastics Meet in Chattanooga back in the spring, and she spent part of her summer at the Gymdog camp at the University of Georgia. The young athlete also enjoys swimming and riding roller coasters. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sister to Charlotte, 7, and an animal lover, helping to care for dog Sassy and cat Alex. And of course, like anyone her age, she loves to visit and play with her friends. Oliviaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s list of superlatives continues. Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a prize-winning student and holder of her schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Eagle Eye award (Effort, Accept responsibility, Give respect, Let go and move on, Exhibit honesty, Success.) She plays clarinet in her school band.

Her parents, both pharmacists in Maryville, are justifiably proud. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Sheâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a very busy girl,â&#x20AC;? says her mom with a grin.

Mission of Hope =

10,000 backpacks! By Anne Hart It’s something so many fortunate kids take for granted when the school year starts. They’ll fill up their backpacks for the first day of school with pens and pencils and crayons and scissors and notebooks and everything else on that long list that came from the teacher. But for some kids, particularly those in nearby rural Appalachia, that’s just not the case. There is simply no money in the family budget for those items, or, sadly, for much of anything else that a lot of school kids take for granted. Knoxville’s Mission of Hope is working to change all of that, and this year will distribute more than 10,000 backpacks loaded with school supplies and hygiene kits to children in Pre-K through 8th grade in 27

schools spread across the southern Appalachians. The organization had its beginnings in the mid 1990’s when Julie and Doug Holland, who had been saddened by what they saw in a series on WBIR-Channel 10 detailing the extreme poverty in the isolated mountains and the suffering of the children in particular, determined to do something about it. In 1996, they filled their garage with clothing for 150 children in those poverty-stricken Appalachian hamlets. The organization grew quickly, and in 1999 Emmette Thompson was hired as executive director. Since that time, Mission of Hope has grown exponentially, but the need is always greater than the available help, and both volunteers and contributions to the 501(c)(3)

The CAK middle school cheer squad and friends volunteer for Mission of Hope’s Back-to-School Backpack Campaign. For them, this means more than 160 summer service hours and 6,000 hygiene bags packed for school children in need.

charity are always welcomed. Mission of Hope is a yearround program, and Thompson’s enthusiasm for his work is always contagious, but particularly so during the week when the backpacks are being readied. “We’re blessed every day,” he says with a smile. “Every day this week we will have 45 to 50 volunteers coming to help us get these kids ready for school. They will be getting backpacks and school supplies ready for more than 10,000 students in 27 schools. The need this year seems to be greater than ever before.” Looking around at a roomful of busy volunteers, stacks and stacks of backpacks and box upon box of school supplies, Thompson adds, “Mission of Hope is what has happened because of one committed woman who answered the hunger for hope with a mission. We are extremely grateful to everyone for helping extend the hope.” There are many ways to help Mission of Hope. To learn what you might do, go to www.

Back to school tips to get your home

Create perfect study spaces: Creating a dedicated study space is an ideal way to help a student focus and stay on top of their schoolwork. And several studies show that by learning children’s study habits and tailoring spaces to reflect how each child best learns, you can help kids achieve their maximum potential. For example, some students need to work in a central location so they can get quick help, while others might need a more private, quiet space. Eye-catching Inspiration: Hanging a bulletin board in the study area creates a place for important reminders at eye level. Cover bulletin boards in bright fabric to bring color to the space and spark brilliance and imagination. Or paint an area above the desk with chalkboard paint so children can write with chalk on the Make lunch a breeze: Pre- wall to stay on top of projects or pack food for the week and store work through math problems.

Organized for a successful year When your carefree summer comes to an end, getting the family ready to go back to school can seem a little daunting. Establishing a routine will help students kick off the new school year and reduce stress for the whole family. “Going back to school is a pivotal time for children and families across the country,” says Wendy Froehlich, Vice President of Marketing for, one of the nation’s top online real estate listing and lifestyle resources. “Get your home and life organized now to ensure the transition is smooth and the school year is the best yet.” With that in mind, is offering tips to help beat the back to school blues and ensure an A+ performance year-round. Eliminate clutter: Designate a specific location to store school papers and materials. This will keep homework and projects from getting lost or in the way. Label individual baskets for each child.

Create a family calendar: A family calendar displayed in a central location will keep everyone organized and in the know. Include important project reminders, after-school activities and test dates. Get the kids involved by having them write in their own activities. Review the calendar together to keep everyone on track.

kids the knowledge they need to protect the environment will have a positive impact on the world for decades to come. McGlauflin says that a good place to start is to get kids to consider energy use. Encourage kids to investigate how much energy their family and school uses, the main sources of that energy and ways to implement energy-saving strategies. Set a goal and get kids to calculate the savings from one monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s utility bill to the next, or over a period of time. Here are some ideas to get started: â&#x2013; Work together to switch old lighting with newer energy efficient bulbs. Ask kids to do a little arithmetic to determine how much longer your new fluorescent or CFL bulbs will last. Take advantage of natural lighting whenever possible. â&#x2013;  Spend a day in the yard planting trees that provide strategic shade. Doing so can help reduce your energy consumption. â&#x2013;  Dress for the weather, so you can adjust your heating or air conucation program. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It helps young introduces them to careers in the ditioning thermostat for reduced people apply science and math growing green jobs industry.â&#x20AC;? energy use. skills in meaningful ways, and More importantly, she said, giving â&#x2013;  Encourage kids to turn off

The environment matters Learning about saving energy and the environment will do more than just help kids save money as adults â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it can help them develop math and science skills, and foster a sense of responsibility. From which appliance to buy to save the most energy, to what temperature to set the thermostat, we are faced with choices that can impact us individually and have global ramifications. Experts say that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s vital to provide the next generation with real world learning opportunities about how their individual and collective choices affect their lives and the whole planet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Environmental education is an excellent and practical way to teach critical thinking and problem solving,â&#x20AC;? says Kathy McGlauflin, Director of Project Learning Tree (PLT), an environmental ed-

Tips for talking with your kids

About bullying Think bullying is just harmless teasing? An estimated 160,000 children miss school every day due to fear of attack or intimidation by other students, according to the National Education Association. And Yale health researchers have found a connection between suicide – the fourth leading cause of death in children ages 10 to 14 – and bullying and being bullied. Experts say that kids themselves have the power to put a stop to bullying. Unfortunately, both victims and bystanders don’t always know the best way to handle bullying situations as they occur. “Most kids feel terrible when they see friends or classmates get bullied. They want to help, but they don’t know what to do,” says Alice Cahn, Cartoon Network Vice President of Social Responsibility. “Having strategies for these situations can help prepare children to intervene when the time comes.” With this in mind, Cartoon Net-

work launched the award-winning Stop Bullying: Speak Up in 2010 to educate kids on what to do when they see friends getting bullied. In partnership with official advisors, including staff from the US Departments of Education and Health and Human Services; and partners including CNN, The Anti-Defamation League, the Pacer Foundation, and nationally recognized academic experts, the bullying prevention campaign aims to put a stop to this common and serious problem. The pro-social campaign is offering these tips for parents and kids to help stop bullying in their schools: ■ Tell an adult: When someone gets bullied, tell a parent, teacher or trusted adult. Talking about it isn’t tattling or snitching. It’s helping someone out. ■ Be friendly: Bullying can make a victim feel alienated and lonely. Saying a few kind words to the person who has been bullied makes a huge difference.

■ Volunteer: Your school’s bullying prevention program needs parents and students to help encourage everyone to speak up against bullying. ■ Say it loud: Ask your school to fly or display the official Stop Bullying: Speak Up flag, which indicates that the school is a place where bullying actions will not be tolerated. ■ Learn more: Free online resources can help you learn how to deal with bullies. Visit to access public service announcements, two 30-minute documentaries and tips sheets for parents and teachers that offer a step-by-step guide for safe and effective ways to be an active bullying bystander. The site also provides links to the Anti-Defamation League, Boys and Girls Club of America and other partners providing expert advice about bullying. All materials are available in English and Spanish. “Don’t stop there,” says Cahn. “These resources are meant to spark a conversation.” No child should feel like his or her school is not a safe place to learn. Parents, teachers and students can work together to make a difference.
