KPD to leave mall

The Knoxville Police Department is leaving Knoxville Center mall. City Council approved two new leases for the East substation at its Dec. 20 meeting, and the police department was scheduled to move prior to the Jan. 31 lease expiration. The new facility is at 4450 Walker Blvd. in space leased for $6,250 per month from J.S. Ridenour. The city had been paying $9,458 monthly for space in the mall. A second agreement for storage is with Southland Commercial Group VII LLC. A city spokesperson confirmed the move and said it was at the request of KPD. “We have about 100 people who work out of the East precinct,” said Jesse Fox Mayshark. There are no other substations. “We just ran out of space at the city’s Safety Building.” In January 1997, then-Mayor Victor Ashe created City Hall in the Mall with the KPD precinct and representatives from the city’s finance department. The East precinct serves the area east of Broadway, while the balance of the city is served from the Safety Building, Mayshark said. “This will get us into the neighborhood and closer to those we serve.” – S.

Hard work pays off

Halls High wrestling competes at state

For the third time in the program’s history, the Halls High School wrestling team qualified for the 3A state duals, which was held last weekend (Feb. 1-2) in Franklin. It’s been a great year for the team, which won the District 3-3A and Region 2-3A championships. Results of the state competition were unavailable at press time, but when reached by phone late last Thursday, head coach Shannon Sayne said he’s excited. “We’re ready to go and compete and see what we can do.” Sayne says his wrestlers have grown as the year has progressed. “At the first of the year, it’s always a struggle, getting guys in the correct weight classes. But once you do that, everything settles down. These guys have worked hard. They (weight) lifted all summer and did a lot of off-season work.” Sayne says the team placed second at the Seymour duals earlier in the year, losing to

Greeneville by three. “But, at the Walker Valley duals later in the year, we beat Greeneville, and they are the region one champs. We lost to Maryville by one, so we’ve had a lot of tough competition. But it’s been a fun year so far.” Sayne says team members in the lightweight class “are solid and deep. We’ve got guys sitting on the bench who could start on other teams. But, that’s a good problem to have because of the depth.”

Central grad enjoys L.A. By Wendy Smith Former Knoxville resident Jason Hamilton has been a successful production designer in Los Angeles since 1996. He’s received industry recognition, like his recent Art Directors Guild nomination for excellence in production design in commercials for Budweiser’s “Return of the King” ad, which aired during last year’s Super Bowl. And he’s worked with numerous industry giants on commercials, music videos, films and photography. But he has just one goal for 2013 – to spend more time with his family. Yes, he’s found success, but it’s come through hard work. Hundred-hour work weeks aren’t uncommon, he says. “There’s definitely not a lot of slacking. It’s not as fun as people think. We have to put in a lot of hours.” He’d have a hard time convincing anybody that he’s not having fun, though. For one thing, he enjoys the professional company of two Knoxville-area friends. His art director is Colby Woodland, his best friend since 8th grade. They graduated from Central High School together. He met prop master Orion Cox from

Oak Ridge when they worked together on a film. For another thing, he gets to do cool stuff. Production designers translate words into reality, Hamilton explains. He works closely with directors to create the physical forms required by scripts. That means creating a color palette, guiding wardrobe decisions and working with the director of photography. “We set the stage, in essence,” he says.

enrollment this month.

He said Tanner Justice (106 pounds) has been “a workhorse all year” and that Evan Huling (113 pounds) “has improved a lot. He’s won tournaments all year and place in every tournament in which he’s played.” Brandon Williams (182 pounds) has been “a real good surprise for us,” Sayne says. “This is only his second year wrestling and he’s come a long way and contributed week in and week out.” Sayne says his seniors include



Hamilton’s work is familiar to anyone who watches television. In addition to “The Return of the King,” which artfully depicts the end of prohibition, he worked on spots for Nike’s “Find Your Greatness” campaign that aired during last summer’s Olympic games. He also worked on the promotion for Taco Bell’s Doritos Locos tacos. That job had a nice perk, he says. “I got to eat one of the perfect ones.”

Devan Ricker (152 pounds), Thomas Rosenbaum (220 pounds), whom he says is a firstyear wrestler that has “come a long way, because it’s often hard to get a first-year wrestler going,” and Aaron Heathman (285-pound heavyweight), “a third-year wrestler who has also come a long way and had a successful year. “That’s the good thing about our team. We don’t really have any ups and downs. Obviously, you’re always going to have some guys who are better than others. But everybody’s pretty consistent. They understand that everybody has to be good for the team to be good. “I could name every single guy on our team. You don’t have a run like this without everybody contributing. We’re going in the right direction.” Middle school story on A-3

Last fall, he traveled to Iceland to shoot an HP printer commercial set in a fishing village. A freak storm delayed filming for a few days, and he was happy to return to the California sunshine. Hamilton has spent enough time around the Hollywood elite that he is no longer dazzled by the likes of Jennifer Lopez and George Clooney. He worked with Clooney once, and says the actor was as impressed by the crew as they were by him. People are people, after all. But he admits to being starstruck twice. The first time was when he worked on his first music video with rocker Ozzy Osbourne. The second was when he and his wife, Cassiel, saw Paul “Bear” Vasquez, the star of a viral video about a double rainbow, at a restaurant. The Hamiltons are the proud parents of two daughters: Izzy, 4, and Bowie, 2. They bring the family to Knoxville at least once a year to visit with Jason’s parents, Larry and Sharlyn Bolinger of Bearden, and James Hamilton. The 17th annual Art Directors Guild Awards were announced on Saturday, Feb. 2, so winners were not available at press time. This year’s Super Bowl Budweiser commercial was also still under wraps at press time, but Hamilton shared one not-so-surprising detail. “The Clydesdales are in it.”

HMS wrestling continues to grow, succeed By Jake Mabe This has been a banner year for the Halls middle school wrestling team. Head coach Cody Humphrey says the team has only lost one dual meet out of the 15 meets in which the team has competed this season. “We lost to Ocoee Middle School in one of the toughest tournaments we’ve faced,” Humphrey said. The team was the top seed for the conference duals, which were held last weekend at William Blount Middle School. Results were unavailable at press time. Humphrey calls this team a special group of young men. “In (a) recent dual tournament, we upset Baylor, Soddy-Daisy and Montgomery Bell Academy. In the wrestling world these teams are like the Maryvilles of high school football, (top talent). My young athletes have put in the time and work and we’re seeing the results that come along with that. “We’ve come up to a level where we are competing

with those teams.” The middle school team currently has 20 players and is continuing to grow. It has only lost four dual meets in the last three years. The team finished first in its conference duals last year and second in 2011. Humphrey, Halls High coach Shannon Sayne and a couple of parent volunteers have also helped organize weekend tournaments for elementary-aged wrestlers, a program that began under former Halls High wrestling coach Chris Vandergriff. Humphrey says the elementary program has attracted 30-40 wrestlers, from those as young as 5 up through 5th grade. Humphrey says wrestling and football can go hand in hand. “I believe the community football players and coaches would be surprised with the benefits they will get from one wrestling season. Maryville High School carries a roster of more than 50 wrestlers, all of whom are football players required to wrestle. I saw a statistic of the number of

Members of the Halls middle school wrestling team include: (front) Chase Woods, Brett McMahan, Jarred Swislosky, Chase Brown, Garrett Lay, Chris Nielsen, Jordan Rogers, Nick Gold, Tom Cassio, Ian Morgan, Jonathan Kiser; (back) coach Scott Holt, Zack Kennedy, Luke Diederich, Tolliver Justice, Adam Jackson, Hunter Woods, Walden McMahan, Luke Harp, Hutson Woods, Trey Shockley, Hunter Lam and head coach Cody Humphrey.

Something like 50 percent. “During the wrestling season, you lose weight, which improves quickness, and we also work on helping improve hand-eye coordination.” The team’s goal is to place in the top five at

the state tournament, which will be held Feb. 9 in Cookeville. Last year, Halls finished 11th out of 60 participating teams and clubs. “It’s an individual tournament, but they keep a team score.” Humphrey says he will lose seven 8th graders af-

Tatewood watches out By Libby Morgan Homeowners in the Tatewood area of Fountain City are organizing a neighborhood watch. More than 30 people attended a recent meeting – residents of Weems Drive, Ridgewood Road, Van Horn Drive and Edonia Drive. Recent break-ins were discussed, as well as ideas for improving awareness

and communication in the community. Being a resident of the neighborhood myself, meeting that many neighbors was a welcome experience. Everyone enjoyed getting to know who they are living near, trading snippets of very localized history, and remembering neighbors who have moved on. Reba Haynes, who has

lived in Tatewood since the mid-fifties, shared anecdotes about the neighborhood and piqued interest for more. Young professionals lent tech-savvy suggestions for security while an older neighbor shared her security strategy: she keeps in contact with trusted immediate neighbors and lets them know when she’s go-

ing to be gone overnight. A suggestion to put small but highly visible markers on cars owned by residents and frequent visitors was met with enthusiasm. A great website for any neighborhood group is It’s a handy communication device already set up for connect-

ing with your neighbors to share safety concerns, offer neighborly services and to meet each other. Plans call for another meeting in March. A Knoxville Police Department officer will be invited to discuss the city’s Neighborhood Watch program. New Tatewood resident Nick Chafin is spearheading the group and can be reached at nick.chafin@

Leaders ‘make good things happen’ Ossoli Circle observed Leadership Day by inviting two accomplished leaders – UT President Emeritus Joe Johnson and Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero – to share their thoughts on the topic.

Wendy Smith

Johnson, who served as UT president from 1991 to 1999 and interim president from 2003 to 2004, said leaders are those who make good things happen. He was mentored by Andy Holt during the early years of his UT career. Holt had never supervised more than five employees before becoming UT president in 1959, Johnson said. “He knew no more about running a university than my black lab dog.” But Johnson learned from Holt to surround himself with capable people. A talented staff should be turned loose – and occasionally supervised, he said. He also shared wisdom from a book written by Jewish grandmothers, like “A meowing cat can’t catch a mouse,” “Go to bed with dogs and wake up with fleas,” and “No answer is an answer,” meaning if you see something amiss, you should speak up. He’s learned from experience that two short sentences help things get accomplished – “Thank you” and “I’m sorry.”

Photo by Wendy Smith A sense of humor can also smooth ruffled feathers and make life more fun. “People without it are the most boring people in the world,” he said. Rogero shared the story of her rise to the city’s top leadership position and encouraged members of the women’s club to get involved in politics. Each person has the power to transform the community, she said. She followed the advice “Bloom where you are planted” when she moved to Knoxville 32 years ago. She came for her husband’s career, but the city wasn’t her first choice. She became active in the community when she joined the fight against the development of a travel trailer park near her North Knoxville neighborhood before the 1982 World’s Fair.

In early 1990, Rogero received a call from an elected official encouraging her to run for Knox County Commission. In addition to being a divorced mother of two with an ethnic name, she didn’t feel qualified to take on long-term Republican incumbent Jesse Cawood. But after putting together a list of friends, she decided to throw her hat into the ring. Rogero was patronized for running her campaign by courting voters, rather than elected officials or party bosses. Her opponent once introduced her by saying, “This is Madeline Rogero. Ain’t she purty?” She won by a landslide. “I have to say, nobody was surprised more than me.” She joined veterans Bee

DeSelm and Mary Lou Horner along with Wanda Moody as women on the commission. They were later joined by Diane Jordan and Pat Medley, making six women on the then-19 member body, a record. After losing her 2003 bid for mayor, Rogero took it upon herself to learn everything she could about the city. It paid off when her former opponent, Bill Haslam, appointed her community development director three years later. Since winning the 2011 mayoral race, she’s followed the advice given by Johnson and surrounded herself with good people. Women can get elected, she said, and shouldn’t let fear of criticism keep them from leading. “If you can’t run, encourage others to run.”

Billboard compromise draws criticism, praise The county’s 4-year-old billboard moratorium was set to expire Jan. 31, and outdoor advertising companies could have lined up at the door to pull permits Feb. 1 if Commissioner Richard Briggs had withdrawn his ordinances to ban conventional billboards and electronic message centers. Briggs was sponsoring three ordinances – one dealing with conventional billboards, one with EMCs and one with digital billboards, emu lat ing the city’s Briggs ban, which prohibits new billboards and disallows converting conventional billboards to digital. The weekend before the Jan. 28 meeting, however, Briggs decided that he didn’t have the votes to ban EMCs and “static billboards,” so on Saturday he posted a mes-

Betty Bean sage on the commission’s on-line forum announcing he would withdraw the first two ordinances and only push the digital billboard ban: “I have met with several of the smaller, local companies that are based in Knox County. Most are small family businesses that would be adversely affected by a total ban. ... “The message I receive is ‘let’s regulate, not ban.’ “The owners are not opposed to sitting down with the MPC, environmental groups, homeowner associations, and local government representatives and working on regulations that everyone can live with.” His announcement immediately drew criticism that he had caved to special interests.

“Absolutely false,” Briggs said. “I did nothing until I talked to the whole leadership of (anti-billboard citizens’ group) Scenic Knoxville, making it clear that if we didn’t make a compromise, all three ordinances would fail.” Briggs said he believed that he would lose the votes of Commissioners Ed Shouse and Mike Brown if he dug into an all-or-nothing position. Commissioners Amy Broyles and Sam McKenzie persuaded Briggs to defer the two ordinances for 90 days and send them to the Metropolitan Planning Commission to add use-on-review requirements rather than to withdraw them. McKenzie warned of “opening up a rabbit hole.” Broyles argued that having MPC add use-on-review provisions would be “reasonable, simple, easy and it takes care of it without opening a whole big can of worms.”

The amended ordinances passed by a 6-4 vote with R. Larry Smith, Dave Wright, Brad Anders and Jeff Ownby voting no. Mike Hammond was absent. Joyce Feld and Margot Kline of Scenic Knoxville are standing by Briggs, and say they are pleased with the compromise. “Richard has been an absolutely fabulous partner in this effort,” Feld said. “He has stuck to his word and followed through on everything he told us he would do.” Billboard interests are not happy with the vote, and dropped hints about lawsuits. Briggs said he thinks he did the right thing: “You get down to a point where everybody’s drawn a line in the sand – all or nothing – but we would have had nothing if we hadn’t compromised,” Briggs said. Ordinances must be approved twice, and this one will come up again in February.

Wood ducks and warblers NATURE NOTES | Dr. Bob Collier Januaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Noahâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Arktype floods had not yet come to the Beaver Creek bottomlands when, on Jan. 5, we put up wood duck boxes in the wetlands along my stretch of the creek. We joined a bright young lady who had crafted some excellent nest boxes as part of a Girl Scout Silver Award project. A family expedition, plus me, to find just the right places for the boxes and to put them up, brought us out on a nice mild January morning. Lest you think that we were overeager, out there all bundled up, putting up bird nest boxes in the dead of winter, let me remind you that as of now, it is only two months until April! The owls are feeding nestlings, the purple martinsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; average arrival date is Feb. 12, and the tree swallows will be close behind. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s time to be cleaning out those bluebird houses and, as we were doing, putting up more housing. There are 85 species of North American birds that prefer or require cavities in which to hatch and raise their young. Before there were any people around, there were plenty of natural cavities, in large old trees with rotten places and holes where dead limbs had broken off. And the woodpeckers were, and still are, prime real estate developers, most of them excavating a new cavity each year for nesting, and often, a second one in the fall, for winter roost-

Republican clubs merge Two Republican clubs have merged, resulting in a new meeting place and date. Michele Carringer, president, says the ofCarringer ficial name is the Fountain City and North Knoxville Republican Club. The club wonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meet in February, but will gather at Louis Restaurant on North Broadway at 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, March 12. Those wanting dinner should arrive at 5:45 p.m. Other officers are Tim Wheeler, vice president; Donna Corbitt, secretary, and Virginia Dunn, treasurer. Info: 247-5756.

ing. Then the cavity nesters lesser-equipped for excavating wood could move into the abandoned woodpecker holes. Now, with a lot of our woods giving way to subdivisions and malls, and overachieving tidy types cutting all the dead trees and snags in yards and parks, nesting cavities have become scarce. That whole situation was greatly compounded with the arrival of the alien, aggressive starlings and house sparrows. They take whichever nesting holes they want from the smaller birds, tossing out the hatchlings and often killing the parents. On the positive side, a considerable number of our native birds have been given a significant boost in their numbers by humans making nest boxes. The most noticeable success has been with our eastern bluebirds. The largest and most enduring housing development for the birds has happened because of all those folks who through the years have tended to their beloved purple martins. But many other birds will take to a human-made home: owls, kestrels, wrens (when theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re not nesting in an old hat in your garage), chickadees, titmice, tree

Wood duck

Prothonotary warbler

swallows. And that brings us back to the wood ducks, and why the swamp people were down in the creek bottom in January. There are actually two species of brightly-colored birds in our area that like to live in nest boxes in lowland watery places. The wood duck and the prothonotary warbler both nest in wateroriented habitats. Both like their homes leaning out over the water, if not actually standing in it. Otherwise the two birds are about as different as any two birds can be. Wood ducks are water birds. They eat stuff that lives in the water, and their babies can care for themselves and find food almost from the moment they hatch. The warblers are regular bug-eating little land birds; they just happen to

like waterfront property. Wood ducks are widespread now across the eastern United States, but by the early 1900s they had been hunted nearly to extinction. Hunting laws were passed just in time, and then many wildlife agencies, as well as lots of private citizens, began setting out wood duck nesting boxes such as the ones we were putting up along Beaver Creek. Fortunately, the wood ducks have rebounded. They may be our most beautiful duck. Check out that male in his breeding plumage in your bird book! Their family life is amazing, too. The females lay 1015 eggs. Then sometimes, other female wood ducks will lay their eggs in there, too, a practice called, appropriately, â&#x20AC;&#x153;dumping.â&#x20AC;? The first mama duck can end up with

two or three dozen eggs! When the baby ducks all hatch, they climb out of their nest hole or box, and jump, bounce or splash depending on the nest location. If not near the water, mama duck leads them off, across golf course or busy highway, to the nearest water. The fuzzy baby ducks can swim and find their own food immediately. I have often seen a row of fluffy wood duck chicks swimming along Beaver Creek behind mama duck. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a really nice scene. Good news for humans: wood ducks exhibit what the ornithologists call strong nest site tenacity. They usually return to the same place to nest, year after year. So weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re hoping our Beaver Creek nest boxes will have tenants this year and next year and on and on. Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll keep you posted. That other water-oriented, cavity-nesting bird, the prothonotary warbler, also named the golden swamp warbler, is truly golden. They are named after certain Vatican officials who are dressed in splendid golden-yellow robes. The male warblerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s

head, throat and breast light up a gloomy swamp like a ray of sunshine. I saw my first one from a canoe. The bird was making a nest in an old hollow stump by the dark, still waters of the Okefenokee Swamp, one of those instant and brief sights you never forget. Prothonotary warblers live in most of the eastern United States, mainly south of the Ohio River. They especially like willow trees, because they are usually near or in the water and have soft wood that rots quickly to provide good nest holes. Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve heard of their nesting near the Island Home airport, and around the lake at Kingston. But my favorite place to hear their song in the spring, and usually see them, is Cove Lake State Park. The hollow willow snags standing in the water there make a perfect habitat for the golden swamp warblers. I try to go up and stand on the observation platform there at least once every spring just to get my yearly prothonotary warbler fi x. Prothonotary warblers will use human-made boxes, too. They like boxes about the size of a bluebird box, only with a smaller entrance hole, about 1 Âź inches. This lets warblers in and keeps some (but not all) other problems out. They lay an unusually large number of eggs for a warbler, 8-10 or so. But their babies follow a more standard program and stay in the nest until they can fly. And, being out over the water, they have to get it right the first time! Maybe thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s why they lay so many eggs. Birds can really be interesting.

There was a great tug of war for Richmond Flowers of Montgomery, Ala. Schools across America wanted him for football and track but the recruiting race came down to Alabama and Tennessee. Paul Bryant promised to hire a track coach and build a track. Tennessee had a track and a track coach, Chuck Rohe, and a bright, young football coach, Doug Dickey. Bryant didn’t dig deep enough to realize he never had a chance. Richmond was fed up with how racial hatred in Alabama politics affected his father. He was going out of state. Richmond also recognized the University of

Tennessee as a bit more sophisticated and cosmopolitan than Alabama, more of a melting pot. Tell your Tide friends it remains so. UT assistant Clifton Stewart was point man in the long, hard recruitment of Stanley Morgan of Easley, S.C. Morgan’s commitment was a big prize for Bill Battle and his staff. Joy soon took a strange turn. Paul Dietzel, then coach at South Carolina, told Battle that the Gamecocks had to sign Morgan or he would be fired. Battle’s first coaching job had been with Dietzel at West Point. This dilemma was heavy. Bill owed a debt of gratitude to Dietzel but worked for Tennessee. A Clemson source, monitoring Morgan, soon told Tennessee that the superstar was going to South

Carolina. Clifton rushed to Easley, to the little frame house with the old Plymouth in the yard. The Morgans were gone. Neighbors said Stanley’s mother had a new job, a new car and a new place to live. Clifton found Mrs. Morgan. She confirmed that her new “opportunities” were related to Stanley’s decision to become a Gamecock. A few days later, she called Tennessee. She had quit her job, given up the new house and given back the new Lincoln. She said her son had not smiled once since she had made him switch sides. She asked if Tennessee would still take him.

a bouquet of yellow roses. For no particular reason, except that recently, he had asked me what my favorite flower was, and he always pays attention. Both of us have been alone for a lot of years (that “solitary place” Isaiah mentioned), but fortunately each of us also had a friend who encouraged us to step out of our comfort zones, and take a chance. I frequently ponder the fragile hinges our lives turn on. What if one of us had not heeded the encouragement of our friend? What if one of us had been too afraid to

meet a stranger in a public place? What if we had not felt like old friends from the very beginning? What if he had not had eyes as blue as my father’s? What if, indeed? But we did heed; we were not afraid; we did feel comfortable; he did have extraordinarily blue eyes; and I did – quite simply – drown in them. I believe that “the wilderness and the solitary place are glad” for us. I believe that our families and friends are glad that we have found one another. I believe that God had a hand in this and

is pleased that we cooperated, and that our lives will be enriched by the joy and contentment we have found. So what lessons have I learned from this unexpected journey? Be patient. (God works in God’s own time.) Pay attention. (You may not see a burning bush, but there will be signs.) Keep your heart strong. (It is a muscle, after all.) Don’t settle. (When it’s right, you’ll know.) And last, but certainly not least, God is good, all the time. (But sometimes, He excels!)

You might not believe this but … Some former insider will someday tell a colorful tale of how Tennessee faked out rival recruiters and got away with a high school lad who grew up to be an all-American. Besides the possibility of cheating and lying, football recruiting may include cloak-and-dagger stories that are slow to spill out of the closet. That’s how competitive recruiting is – a lot of stuff happens and almost anything goes but don’t talk and don’t get caught. Return with me now to yesteryear, 1927. For some strange reason, Bobby Dodd and Paul Hug didn’t really want to be Volunteers. They rode the bus from Kingsport to Nash-

Marvin West

ville with the idea of playing for Vanderbilt. Dodd’s grades were suspect but both signed some kind of papers and were all set to be Commodores. Robert R. Neyland did not like this news. He wanted Hug and would take Bobby to get Paul. Knoxville sporting goods dealer Frank Callaway was appointed to investigate. He drove to Nashville for

what he considered a rescue mission. The rules of that day said a player wasn’t officially in school until he played a game. Callaway went on campus, found the players and explained their mistake. They repented, gathered possessions, squeezed into Callaway’s car and drove east on a sunny September afternoon. Dodd and Hug enrolled at Tennessee the next morning at 10. They were called transfers. That afternoon they played in a freshman game, 45-0 over Murphy Institute. Vanderbilt and others screamed foul. Neyland remained silent but supposedly smiled.

my story


Tapping into your hearts By Ruth White I have been fortunate enough to see the Tellico Tappers perform three times in recent years. This group of energetic women never ceases to amaze me. They did so again at the Halls Senior Center last week. The group has been together for many years, performing and perfecting one of America’s best-loved dance forms. They spend at least five hours each week learning new routines and even more time at home perfecting their steps. They are energetic, talented and fun to watch. Just one glance and it’s hard to believe that members range in age from 50 to 74, with the median age in the mid-60s. Dancing keeps them young and in great shape. It shows during every performance. Director Marilynn McKenna builds a fast-paced show. Seeing each new costume is part of the fun. Members of the group help create and sew the elaborate costumes that add an extra flair to the dance routines. If you have never had the Sharen Bennett performs a routine to “Chattanooga Choo pleasure of seeing the TelliChoo” during an appearance at the Halls Senior Center.

“He said you reach 38,000 homes,” said Tate, “and we’re offering a free haircut.” “Gosh, I hope they don’t all show up at once,” I responded. He laughed (and that was a good thing). Sport Clips has opened in Northfork Station (the Walmart Center) at 4227 Sam Walton Way. Info: 9221656. “We’ve taken everything a guy hates about getting his hair cut and built a shop without it,” says Swan, explaining the Sport Clips concept. Now with 1,100 stores, Sport Clips is the market leader in haircuts for men and boys. “There’s no appointment, you’re in and out quickly – 25 minute or less – and there are no chemical smells like you might find in a women’s shop. If you want to talk, we’ll talk. If you want to watch TV, you can do that too. “We make it easy.” Swan Tate owns four of the six area Sport Clips stores: Turkey Creek (which he opened six years ago), Clinton Highway, Maryville and now Halls.

Time and oxygen therapy help woman’s wounds It’s said that “time heals all wounds,” but in Rachel Orr’s case, it’s taken many months and high doses of 100 percent oxygen to help heal her severe wounds. The Farragut woman suffers from a rare form of vasculitis, a disorder that inflames the blood vessels and can cut the blood supply to your organs and tissues. The cause of vasculitis isn’t always clear, but sometimes it’s triggered by an infection, cancer, an immune system disorder or an allergic reaction. Orr suspects a scratch on her leg from a rose bush may have triggered her inflammation. As a diabetic, the 61-year-old was always mindful of cuts and scratches, and kept her diabetes under control. But she was shocked by what happened next. “I woke up a few days later and my left foot had suddenly swelled overnight,” she remembers. The swelling then spread to her right foot, leaving her leg weak and red. Orr, who is a retired Registered Nurse, sought medical help, but physicians were baffled. “I went to 15 different providers before I finally got a diagnosis,” says Orr. Within months, the swelling had progressed to her left and right arm and her fingers began turning black. “It was so frustrating,” says Orr. “I was in constant pain. It felt like my skin was burning all the time. I kept trying to get help.” Finally, Orr was diagnosed with Bechet’s vasculitis. By now, she was also experiencing deep ulcers on her fingers and feet. One of her physicians referred her to Dr. Douglas Schuchmann with the Fort Sanders Wound

Rachel Orr’s fingers before and after hyperbaric oxygen therapy.

Months of intensive hyperbaric oxygen therapy are helping to heal deep ulcers on Rachel Orr’s feet and hands.

Treatment Center. Dr. Schuchmann recommended hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) therapy for the diabetic wounds on her feet. The oxygen sessions would also help with the damage to her hands caused by her vasculitis. After months of two-hour HBO treatments five days a week, Orr is grateful to see her wounds slowly healing. “It’s just a miracle,” she says. During the long sessions, Orr says she usually prays, re-

flects, and thinks of the family and friends who have helped her throughout her long ordeal. “I’m so thankful for the loving support I’ve received,” she says. “The Wound Treatment and HBO staff here at Fort Sanders has also been excellent. They are compassionate and professional, and have a caring spirit that is genuine.” Orr, who looks forward to healing enough to return to the volunteer community nurs-

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy forces oxygen into the tissue, encouraging the formation of new blood vessels and promoting healing.

Fort Sanders Regional ‘Med Minder’ Card Keep track of medical information

Hyperbaric oxygen therapy heals difficult wounds Hyperbaric oxygen (HBO) treatments are an important therapy in diabetic wound care. “People are fascinated with these treatments,” says Dr. George Schuchmann, medical director of the Fort Sanders Wound Treatment Center. “But they’re not for everyone, and they’re not a panacea.” The Fort Sanders Wound Treatment Center has two hyperbaric oxygen chambers in its outpatient clinic that are used to treat certain deep tissue wounds that may not heal with conventional therapies alone. “The chamber delivers extra oxygen to the soft tissues, which helps bolster the immune system,” explains Dr. Schuchmann. Each treatment inside the oxygen chamber is called a “dive” because of the increase in atmospheric pressure. The clear chambers are each 7 feet long, large enough to hold one person weighing up to 350 pounds. The patient slides in on a bed, and the chamber is sealed and filled with 100 percent oxygen. Then, a technician slowly increases the

ing work she enjoys, has advice for others suffering from painful severe wounds. “You have to understand that healing is a slow process. You have to have hope, faith and patience, but don’t give up. There is help and healing!” For more information about treatment at the Fort Sanders Wound Treatment Center, call 865-541-2784 or go to

atmospheric pressure inside the chamber to a pressure two to three times that of the outside atmosphere. As the patient breathes and lies in the chamber, the increased atmospheric pressure forces 10 to 15 times more oxygen into the patient’s blood stream and tissues than normal. At the Fort Sanders Wound Treatment Center the chambers are used for outpatient, long-term care of wounds, bone infections called osteomylitis, wounds caused by cancer radiation treatments and for the healing of skin grafts. Most major insurance companies, including Medicare, cover hyperbaric oxygen treatments for the treatment of serious diabetic wounds. Quick wound healing is important to prevent a serious life-threatening infection. Studies show that diabetic patients who use hyperbaric oxygen treatment along with traditional wound care significantly reduce their risk of amputations of the foot or leg from diabetic ulcers. The major drawback to hyperbaric oxy-

gen treatment is that it requires between 20 and 30 treatments to be effective. “It’s not painful, but it is a large time commitment,” Dr. Schuchmann explains. “Most patients require two hours a day of treatments, five days a week, for about six weeks.” Plus, the treatment is not safe for everyone, he adds. Increased atmospheric pressure in the chamber can worsen certain medical conditions like pneumothorax (a collapsed lung), congestive heart failure, cataracts or seizure disorders. The oxygen chamber is also not suitable for pregnant women or those with other underlying respiratory problems. “But, hyperbaric oxygen therapy can be very beneficial for some people as an adjunct treatment,” summarizes Dr. Schuchmann.

Horse opera

John Niceley, who raises grain-fed beef and teaches horsemanship at his family’s Strong Stock Farm on Rutledge Pike, never expected to be invaded by opera singers.

Carol Zinavage

Carol’s Critter Corner His daughter Carrie is a soprano with The UT Opera Theater, but this is something else altogether. Niceley is providing horses and rider training for Knoxville Opera’s current production of Giacomo Puccini’s “The Girl of the Golden West.” It’s set during the California Gold Rush of the late 1800s. The story centers around a reformed criminal, the woman who believes in him and the sheriff who wants him dead. And it’s all in Italian. Talk about a Spaghetti Western. Several of the characters will ride onto the stage of the Tennessee Theatre on real horses this weekend when the opera is performed. Niceley has been teaching the stars of the show how to look as if they’ve been riding all their lives and how to manage their horses in close quarters. “They are the nicest folks, and they’re all doing so well,” says Niceley. “The way they’ve improved since day one is just

astonishing.” Soprano Carter Scott has enjoyed her experiences at Strong Stock Farm. Practicing a difficult maneuver with her horse, Callie the Pallie, she eventually succeeded. “John Niceley told me to go off by myself and think about it for a minute, to let it sink in,” she says. “It’s a lot like singing. Sometimes you practice something the wrong way over and over. And when you finally get it right, you need to stop and think about it for a while.” Scott is, however, concerned that Niceley’s little black Pekingese dog, Pepper, isn’t really clear on one important detail. “She got between me and my horse and just demanded to be petted. It’s obvious that she thinks she’s the diva.” The singers and their horses must maneuver in tight spaces while they’re onstage. For that reason, all riders will mount and dismount from the right side, which is not standard. “There’s a window in the way,” laughs bass Ricardo Rivera, referring to the stage set. Though Rivera himself is young, he is playing a much older man. Niceley has been working with him to slow his movements while in the saddle. Stay tuned for next week’s second installment, when you’ll learn how performance week went for the equine stars and their riders, as well as the answer to the question on everyone’s minds: will the shows be “accident-free”?

On a beautiful country road in Hardin Valley is a barn more than 100 years old. The road is named Buttermilk Road, an appropriate name for a family farm. The Fain family purchased 67 acres in 1910 for $200, which was a large sum of money at the time.

Barnyard Tales Kathryn Woycik The smokehouse and blacksmith shop were built about 1940. George and Barsha Fain had 15 children, raising 12 of them on this property. They lived in an old twostory farmhouse with no electricity or plumbing. The home was heated by wood. Two lanterns lit their way in the night. Snow blew through the cracks in the walls in winter. Life was hard but fulfilling. The children were all musicians who played the piano, banjo, fiddles or guitars. In 1932, the barn and garage were built. Both have remained there for 83 years. In 1940 the corn crib, smokehouse, woodhouse, blacksmith shop and twoseater were added. A twoseater, you ask? It isn’t a wagon or carriage, as I first

thought, but an outhouse. And, yes, it had two seats side by side! Each of the children had their own chores. They helped raise horses, cows, chickens and hogs. The meat was stored in the smokehouse. Corn, peanuts and other crops were grown. A stream provided water, and a team of horses hauled water to the house in buckets. A two-room schoolhouse was originally located on the corner of Graybeal and Buttermilk roads. Many of the Fain children received their education from one teacher, who taught eight grades. Both George and Barsha had died by 1943. Three sons and a daughter remained on the farm. In
