A free drug awareness event will be held 6 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 6, in Black Oak Plaza. Jason Berry, pastor of River of Hope Church in Halls, says the event is not a church event, but an evening to raise awareness about the growing substance abuse problem in the area, particularly prescription drug abuse, and to highlight ways in which addicts and families can seek help. “We began to see this afJason Berry fecting people from every

Families were devastated from theft, abuse and court costs.” The keynote speaker will be Jessica Akhrass, a Farragut resident whose brother died from a drug overdose. She is currently working to help pass legislation curbing prescription drug abuse through the state Legislature. Tommy Gass, who has recovered from drug addiction, will also speak. “The biggest thing we want to do is raise awareness to the addict and also the families of an addict that there are programs out there. A lot of people want to seek help but theyy d on t don’t

We’re just trying to let people know that there’s help, some of it free.” Information booths will be staffed by Bradford Health Systems, Celebrate Recovery, Centerpoint Residential and Helen Ross McNabb, Cornerstone of Recovery, the Metropolitan Drug Commission, North Side YMCA, One Step, Second Chance Recovery, Teen Challenge and True Purpose Recovery. Music will be provided by Selfless Son. The event will be held under a 40-by-60-foot tent in the shopping center.

Since its opening, owners have invested $122 million in buildings and equipment. Peripheral businesses have sprung up on Emory and Conner roads.

Expansion at Juvenile Services Center By Betty Bean Construction on a $3 million, 11,509 square foot addition to the Richard L. Bean Juvenile Services Center will begin this month. Juvenile Judge Tim Irwin says he’s hoping it will be completed by this time next year. Knox County Commission approved the appropriation in July for an addition that will house four new child support courtrooms as well as mediation services. Richard Bean, superintendent of the facility that bears his name, said the project has been in the works for a long time. “We came up with the idea of moving child support (to Division

Street) because Judge Irwin has to go downtown to the Old Courthouse several days a week, and it would save everybody a lot of time to consolidate. So we drew up plans and were glad to see that Mayor Burchett put it in the budget and County Commission approved it.”

Irwin said there is a twofold reason for building the addition. “The first reason is safety,” he said. “The third floor of the old courthouse is not designed for the workload it’s getting. I’m worried that the wall will not be able to continue to handle the weight – sometimes you can literally feel the walls quiver.” The other reason is efficiency. “It’s not a luxury – it’s something that’s desperately needed.

We’re so thankful and appreciative that Mayor Burchett included it in his budget this year,” Irwin said. He said there will be a bonus for the county, as well. “It’s going to free up a lot of needed space in the old courthouse.” The architect is Barge, Waggoner, Sumner & Cannon Inc.

Rubbing shoulders with the rich and famous Halls native and big band leader Brad Walker got to rub shoulders with the rich and famous earlier this year when he attended a 90th birthday party for trumpeter and bandleader Ray Anthony in Los Angeles.

Jake Mabe MY TWO CENTS Walker performed as a pickup musician in Anthony’s band a few times several years ago when Anthony was still touring. They have remained good friends. “He’s even sent me ar-

rangements for my band,” Walker says. “Some of the biggest requests we get are for his charts.” Anthony is best known for “The Bunny Hop” and for hit singles of the TV themes to “Dragnet” and “Peter Gunn.” He also hosted a short-lived variety show and worked with everyone from Frank Sinatra to Hugh Hefner. The party was held at the Odyssey restaurant in Beverly Hills. Anthony’s orchestra played and about 200 friends and families helped Anthony celebrate. Among them were Hefner, record producer Berry Gordy and actor Jerry Stiller. Anthony has promised Walker he will conduct Walker’s band at its 10th anniversary celebration next year.

Walker also played a private gig at Cherokee Country Club last month with trombone player Bob Havens, who was a member of Bob Havens Lawrence Welk’s band for 30 years and was a familiar face on Welk’s TV show. “He’s 82 years old,” Walker says, “and still plays very well. We did some Dixieland music, which is his specialty.” Walker said his favorite Bob Havens story revolved around the advice Welk used to give his band and singers: “Look like you’re having fun but don’t have any.” “A lot of jazz musicians

Charley Odom receives Governor’s Proclamation By Theresa Edwards World War II veteran Charley Odom, who will turn 100 in April, received a Governor’s Proclamation presented by state Rep. John Ragan at the Ben Atchley State Veteran’s Home during a special celebration Sept 22. “Thank all of you for being here, and for this picture of my first submarine, an old USS S-1. She was in World War I,” Odom said. He was in charge of keeping the submarine running, working in the engine room with 21 men. “I’m sure glad I joined the Navy,” he said. Odom enlisted in the U.S. Navy in 1933 at age 20. At 29, he was referred to as “The Old Chief” and put the USS Billfish SS-286 into commission. He was awarded a Navy Citation for extraordinary service contributing to the survival of the submarine. The story of his courageous Navy submarine adventures is told in the book “War Beneath the Waves” written by Don Keith.

He said, ‘Well, No. 1, he pays well and it’s a steady job, and No. 2, it’s great music.’ ” Coincidentally enough,

Walker’s friend Anthony tried to hire Havens away from Welk to play on Anthony’s TV show. “Ray Anthony’s show only lasted about six months. Bob said, ‘I made the right choice!’ ” Walker says the big band business is booming and is

Majors suits up for Hancock Betty Bean home he bought for his parents with his NFL money, is the underdog in the heavily Republican 18th District state House race. Majors, who weighed about 150 with rocks in his pockets when he signed on to play single wing tailback under Gen. Robert R. Neyland, knows something about being an underdog, and he’s standing with his player. The old coach gave a stem-winder of a speech in Hancock’s behalf at a West Knox fundraiser. He first said he is not anti-Republican. He liked Ronald Reagan and George H.W. Bush, but doesn’t think much of today’s ultra-conservatives. “I have been very disturbed for several years about the anger that the right wing has brought to the political scene,” he said. “You can look at cartoons going back to Jefferson’s days, and some of them are just dastardly. But the anger and greed of today’s right wing is unmatched. “Do you think I want the Tennessee legislature handling my Medicare? Give me some coupons to go shop for medical care? I don’t know how anybody who’s educated and has any common sense could vote for somebody like that crazy (Stacey) Campfield (a close ally of Hancock’s opponent, Steve Hall).” Majors praised Hancock as “a team man” who has led a life of service. “He is a man of great character and integrity who has done a lot of good for people. He was always ready when the whistle blew.”

Heaven Earth

Martin leads Lakeshore negotiations Lakeshore Mental Health Institute off Lyons View Pike closed this summer after better than a century of service. Intense discussions are underway between the city and state for some 65 acres which may be added to Lakeshore Park. It is a major undertaking. Countless legal and financial questions must be answered, and the process is likely to last for months. Larry Martin, now a top Haslam aide in Nashville, is representing the state, while Deputy Mayor Eddie Mannis represents the city. Also involved are state commissioners Mark Cates and Mark Emkes; and city leaders Bill Lyons, Charles Swanson, Christi Branscom and Lee Miracle. No governor could be more familiar with this land, since Haslam’s home on Sherwood Drive is less than a mile away. His fam-

Anthony Hancock and Johnny Majors Photo by Betty Bean

Anthony Hancock was the first player Johnny Majors signed to wear Tennessee orange, snatching him right out from under the nose of Woody Hayes on signing day. Both Majors and the legendary Ohio State coach were stalking the halls of Cleveland’s John Hay High school on the first day to sign National Letters of Intent in 1978. Hancock remembers it like it was yesterday. “The bell rang for third period, and down the left side of the hall you could see this giant guy, (6-8 OSU Lombardi Trophy winner John Hicks), and right next to him, this little bitty white guy, Coach Hayes. On the left side there were (Tennessee wide receivers coach) Bob Harrison and Johnny Majors. My athletic director didn’t allow either head coach to talk to me,” Hancock said. After school, his AD took Hancock to see his father in the hospital. Majors met him there, and he and his dad signed on with Tennessee. Except for the years when he played wide receiver for the Kansas City Chiefs, Hancock has been here ever since, working in public service-oriented jobs – as a small business development specialist for the state of Tennessee, for the Boy Scouts (where he helped 12 inner-city kids attain the rank of Eagle Scout), and now as a special education teacher at Bearden Elementary School who is deeply concerned about educational issues – from Headstart and school lunches (which he supports) to the Tennessee Virtual Academy (which he doesn’t).

ily company, Pilot Flying J, gave one of the ball fields at Lakeshore. What funding, if any, comes with property for those buildings which will require demolition? The city wants some financial assistance for demolition and the state prefers to transfer the property with more limited financial aide. Martin knows the issue well. Another issue is how to use the historic administration building. What city offices, if any, might be housed there? What use will it have? The current building has some structural issues. The city already has 13

empty buildings transferred more than a year ago for which a decision on use or demolition must be made. This is great news for park advocates in that the land will remain in public hands and be added to the city’s inventory to make Lakeshore an even greater park for all Knoxvillians to enjoy. Despite the significant costs associated with the transfer, this is a once in a lifetime opportunity for the city. For me personally, it is exciting to see the original acquisition, which I pushed with help from Jimmy Haslam, Caesar Stair and Tom McAdams going back to the early 1990s with the late Gov. Ned McWherter’s support, expanding and reaching its full potential for public recreational use. In my view, it is appropriate for the state to assist in the cost of demolition of

buildings which the state built years ago. ■ Duane and Marsha Grieve have returned from a two-week trip to China, visiting Beijing and Xien among other cities.

‘Going out of business’ Bedelle recalls city-county schools merger

Dr. Fred Bedelle says it’s a misnomer to refer to the “merger” or the “consolidation” of the local city and county school systems.

Anne Hart

“What actually happened is that in 1987 the city simply went out of the schools business and the county took over,” Bedelle says. As superintendent of the city system at that time, and as a longtime employee of the county school system under Mildred Doyle before then, Bedelle played a critical role in the complicated undertaking of combining the two systems, and in the process worked himself right out of a job, or, as the erudite Dr. Bedelle puts it with a laugh: “I was eliminated by plebiscite.” And he’s correct again, because it took an actual vote of the people to put the city of Knoxville out of the schools business and the highly-respected Dr. Bedelle out of his job. But combining the systems was far more complicated than just a vote of the citizens. While efforts over several decades to consolidate the city of Knoxville and Knox County governments into one entity had repeat-

edly failed, 1986-87 yielded a “perfect storm” for the school system, but it wasn’t an easy process. Bedelle In 1986, Mayor Kyle Testerman saw that the city was running out of money to fund the schools or much of anything else. A huge budget deficit loomed, created in large part by pensions promised to teachers in lieu of salary increases in the past. As the city had gobbled up land through annexation over the years in an effort to increase its tax base, it had also acquired many county schools in the process – this in spite of the fact that the ever-shrewd Mildred Doyle, who served as Knox County’s elected schools superintendent from 1945 to 1975, had cleverly located many county schools at the outer edges of the county, far away from any likely annexation. Nonetheless, during the 1960s, for example, a total of 30 county schools were taken over by the city through annexation. As the costs of maintaining those schools and funding their administrative costs grew, the city had been postponing critical work on school buildings, including removing asbestos from some of them. The money for such projects simply wasn’t available. While the city was finding itself in a financial quagmire, Bedelle, who is soon to publish a book reflecting on the history of the local

schools, recalls that “Nashville had just consolidated its government, and there was a push for consolidation all across the state. “Locally, when city-county consolidation was voted on in the past, city voters would approve it, but county voters would not. City voters would claim they were being double taxed for education; county voters didn’t want to do without the state money they would lose with a combined school system.” Faced with a looming $90 million budget shortfall for funding the teachers’ pension, Testerman announced in 1986 that he would place a referendum on the ballot in the November general election to amend the city charter “to abolish the city of Knoxville public school system.” The vote passed in the city with more than 55 percent approval. The vote was in, but still, “it was a difficult time for everyone,” Bedelle recalls. “Regardless of what anyone says, the two school systems served different clienteles.” And then there were the differences in pensions and salaries and holiday schedules and insurance and on and on. Finally, it took a court order on June 30, 1987, just one day before the scheduled changeover, to settle some of those issues, and years to settle others. And the city’s massive obligation to the city teachers’ pension fund? The court ruled that the city must pay it after all. Twenty-five years later, Dr. Bedelle, with his remarkable sense of humor still in place, says of the whole experience: “I’ve still got the scars.”

War on peddlers Commissioner R. Larry Smith has declared war on the weekend peddlers that frequent major roads, such as Maynardville Pike in Halls and Smith Clinton Highway in Powell. “This should be the last summer for them,” said Smith. He’s asked Law Director Bud Armstrong to draft a resolution or ordinance to enable the county’s codes enforcement to control the roadside vendors. What can be done? “We can ask them to have written permission from the property owner,” Smith said. “I’m not after the yard sales in subdivisions, but those almost permanent businesses on the sides of the road.” He said he’s received numerous complaints. Last week, Smith could not block planned commercial rezoning of Sam Connor’s 17 acres on Emory Road just west of Central Avenue Pike. Smith wanted to know what was going there, but lawyer Arthur Seymour Jr. said a developer will not buy it withough the rezoning. The vote to rezone passed, 7-2. – S. Clark

Rejoice in the presence

Cross-country champions from 1972: Robert Lenarduzzi, Ron Addison, Doug Brown, Danny Zoeller and Farragut guy John Angel. Photo from the Marvin West archive

CROSS CURRENTS | Lynn Hutton The Lord, your God, is in your midst, a warrior who gives victory; he will rejoice over you with gladness, he will renew you in his love; he will exult over you with loud singing as on a day of festival. (Zephaniah 3: 17-18a NRSV) Joy is the infallible sign of the presence of God.

Party time at Tennessee

(Pierre Teilhard de Chardin)




he Tennessee cross-country family is celebrating the historic NCAA championship of 40 years ago. Oh, the joy of triumphant recollections, tall tales, monstrous exaggerations and bare-faced lies. In this case, 70 or more old Vols could do or say whatever they chose. It was their show. The university athletic department, in the financial arrears, could not feed the multitude, not at Calhoun’s on the River. Best I can tell, crosscountry running has been and remains an almost private enterprise. Through the decades, there were very few witnesses and almost no applause. Races happened and virtually nobody noticed. The band did not play. There were no requests for autographs. The persistent might have found a short story if the newspaper had one. Cross-country appears simple enough. Lean, dedicated, determined people stride six miles or so around a golf course or perhaps over hill and vale and back to the starting point. If winning is important, all it takes is all you’ve got. Some who ran, Frankie Albertson for example, tell me it is a tough game. No intermission, no timeouts, no substitutions and don’t let the guy in front get too far ahead. In the grand and colorful sports history of the University of Tennessee, distance runners have won that one national title. It happened in Houston, Glenbrook golf course, Nov. 20, 1972, damp, dreary day, temperature in the 40s. Stan Huntsman was the proud coach. Doug Brown, Roberto Lenarduzzi, Danny Zoeller, John Angel and Ron Addison carried the colors in what was probably a thrilling upset of East Tennessee State. I missed it. I was doing football. I do know the Bucs were logical favorites. Coach David Walker had imported the Irish brigade. Neil Cusack, born in Limerick, came through as projected. He won the individual championship. Brown ran a few seconds behind but a few seconds in front of another Irishman, Eddie Leddy. Patrick Leddy was in the general vicinity.

Low score wins in crosscountry, determined by the finish of the best five runners representing a school. Tennessee totaled 134 points. ETSU was assessed 148. Oregon was handicapped. Steve Prefontaine skipped the meet. We got a few quotes from Huntsman: “Every coach in the country dreams of a national championship and suddenly we have one. That was the biggest day in my coaching life. I am extremely proud of these men. They worked. They deserved to win.� Huntsman said he got the feeling with a couple of miles to go that the Vols were in the hunt. “A coach can’t see much of the race but you can

pick out teams you think are competitive and look for their fifth man. At four miles, a lot of teams were out of business.� Some runners fold under pressure. Some sprint at the wrong time, when they should maintain a steady pace. Now and then, one falls and three trip over him. Brown had a strong closing kick. Angel, from Farragut High, gave great effort. Addison, left behind at the motel when the team went to the golf course, caught a bus and arrived in plenty of time to grab that crucial fifth scoring spot for the Vols. Cheers for the champs. Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is

here is a difference between happiness and joy. The dictionary struggles to make the distinction, sometimes using the one term to define the other. Lara cries, “Lord, what joy!� when she learns that Zhivago is still alive. “Joy to the world,� the hymn declares. “The Lord is come!� If happiness is lemonade, then joy is champagne. Happiness is a smile; joy is a shriek of laughter. And de Chardin assures us that joy is God’s trademark, God’s signature, the surest sign of God’s presence. So why are there so many grumpy religious folks? Have they not read the memo? Have they not heard the Good News? What is the message we send the world when Christians can’t be gracious – full of grace – with each other? If faith, and by association joy, were conta-

gious, would there be an epidemic in your neighborhood, or would your neighbors be safe? And more to the point, does God’s presence create joy? Or is God drawn to joy wherever God finds it, because joy is God’s native tongue? I sometimes ponder God’s activity in creation. Imagine dreaming up waterfalls and hummingbirds, starfish and puppies, ocean waves and grizzly bears! I wonder if God said, “Wow, what would happen if I ‌?â€? and then clapped His hands and the Orion nebula appeared? Did God laugh? God’s presence – God’s joy – is God’s gift to us, if we can but open our hearts and eyes and minds to it. Even on the bleakest of our days, the sun comes up (maybe covered by clouds, but it’s there!), another day dawns, the earth spins, a mother sings, and somewhere a baby laughs.

My theology has been shaped and molded by music all my life. (That may be true of all of us: the adage says “The faith we sing is the faith we believe,� which is why I try to choose hymns carefully!) It is Mark Hayes’ anthem “And the Father Will Dance� (a setting of the Zephaniah text quoted above) that is for me the most exuberant expression of God’s joy in creation: “And the Father will dance as on a day of joy; He will exult over you and renew you by His love.� The music dances and lilts and skips and twirls, and I can almost see the Almighty bending to paint a flower and pat a puppy; I can see God’s great hand reaching to snatch a star out of the heavens and toss it to a child like a ball. Teilhard de Chardin was right! Joy – wherever it bubbles up – is the infallible sign of the presence of God!

Coffee Break with

Dr. Donovan Stewart Fountain City chiropractor Dr. Donovan Stewart will celebrate his 25th year in business this month. Stewart was born in Minneapolis, Minn., but has lived in Knoxville since he was 10. He attended Brickey Elementary (his mother, Virginia Rains, taught at Brickey for several years) and Central High School before transferring from UT to Northwestern College of Chiropractic in Minneapolis. He returned to Knoxville after graduation and started his chiropractic career in Johnson City running a satellite office for a Knoxville chiropractor. After a year, he came back home and set up his first practice on Western Avenue. The office moved to Broadway and Garden Drive before Stewart moved his practice to its current location on Whittle Springs Road. Stewart and his wife, Pam, have been married since 1983. They have two daughters, Kelsey and Alyssa. Pour yourself a cup of Joe and meet Dr. Donovan Stewart.

What is your favorite quote from TV or a movie? This is a difficult question because most of our dialogue at home is spiced with movie quotes. They range from the classic, “I’ll be back!” to “Monty Python” (“I’m not dead. I think I’ll go for a walk,”) to the more obscure: “I’ll get my own nuggets. Don’t you worry about how.” (“The Sasquatch Gang”)

What are you guilty of? Can you be guilty of loving your wife and kids too much? Can you be guilty of trying too hard for your patients? Seriously: guilty of overindulging in food and bragging too much about my girls. You can’t prove any of the rest.

What is your favorite material possession? My special edition Taylor guitar that I bought for my 40th birthday.

What are you reading currently? “Killing Lincoln” and the third volume of the Game of Thrones series.

What was your most embarrassing moment? Trying out for Little League baseball, my legs cramped up and I could barely run around the bases.

What are the top three things on your bucket list? 1. Get a bucket. 2. Win the lottery. 3. Fill bucket with lottery winnings.

A bandsaw.

What is the best advice your mother ever gave you? Pay attention to your teachers.

What is one word others often use to describe you and why? Caring. It fits with the nature of my profession.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? My weight.

What is your passion? Eating, apparently. Seriously, my family is my passion.

With whom, living or dead, would you most like to have a long lunch? Well, I definitely don’t want to have lunch with a dead person, so probably Elvis.

Other than your parents, who has had the biggest influence on your life and why? My daughters, Kelsey and Alyssa. The responsibility of being a parent has caused me to grow into a better person.

What is your social media of choice? The phone.

What is the worst job you have ever had? Busing tables and washing dishes.

What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon and why? “Space Ghost,” because he had a monkey and cool wrist power controls. Or “Johnny Quest,” because it was exotic.

What irritates you? Smart people doing stupid things.

What’s one place in Halls or Powell or Fountain City that everyone should visit? Fountain City Park and Lake

What is your greatest fear? I’ll let you know after the election.

If you could do one impulsive thing, what would it be? Skydive.

I still can’t quite get the hang of… Trusting God completely and fully accepting His grace.

What is the best present you ever received in a box?

Looking School. on are principal Dr. Elisa Luna and Inskip’s reading scores superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre. soared last year, catching everybody’s attention and leading to an appropriation of $3 million to replicate the program in nine other schools. Inskip was one of five elementary schools to pilot the fi rst-grade reading intervention program. In one year, it is credited with moving the proficiency in reading score at Inskip from 27.7 percent to 98.9 percent. Principal Dr. Elisa Luna said the program works because teachers and students get on the same page. “Then we work hard, and just keep working.” At Friday’s ceremony, Tom Catani told the students that he has fi ve children who are all “big.” He moved the kids closer to him and read about Dexter, a small dog that was bullied by a bigger cat. “Everything about him was small, but his dreams.” Catani asked students if they have big dreams. One said she wants to “fly like Dexter,” and Catani suggested becoming an airplane pilot.

Macaw at Market Square By Theresa Edwards Belle is a macaw who enjoys socializing. She was greeting people at Market Square Farmers Market alwith owner Chris Connone. Belle was doing well, climbing onto the arm of those who offered it to her. “She prefers the left side,” Connone said when she would not go onto someone’s right arm. She perched on Connone’s

left side, until a hawk appeared in a tree above. She became disturbed, climbed up her owner’s left arm, across her back and onto her right shoulder. The hawk is a natural predator of macaws, but did not bother Belle with her owner present. Wild macaws use flight as a defense. With their long wings, they are very

powerful fliers, and their long tail gives them agility as they maneuver through the forest. They usually nest high in treetops to view approaching dangers, allowing them time to get away. However, being domesticated, Belle has had her wings clipped and depends on Connone to protect her. Belle is about 14 years old. Macaws can live to be 70.

Minimally invasive robotic surgery hastens hysterectomy recovery Tonia Daniels of Seymour decided she had suffered long enough. “I had a lot of abdominal pain,” says the 40-year-old Daniels, who was diagnosed with two fibroid tumors in her uterus in mid-July. Fibroid tumors are growths originating in the uterus. Although they are typically not cancerous, they can be. And they can cause a great deal of pain and excessive bleeding. In mid-July, Daniels consulted with Dr. Frank McKeown, a gynecologist with Fort Sanders Women’s Specialists at Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center. Through a CT scan, he confirmed the presence of the tumors, one of them 9 centimeters across. “It was like I was four to five months pregnant with these fibroids,” explains Daniels. “Dr. McKeown was so nice and explained all the options,” she remembers. Fibroids can be removed while leaving the uterus intact, but unfortunately they often return. The only way to cure them for good is to remove the uterus, which is called hysterectomy. “Dr. McKeown was sure to ask whether my husband and I still

“The surgery went excellent; it couldn’t have gone any better. The whole experience was easy, compared to what I was expecting.” – Tonia Daniels, Fort Sanders hysterectomy patient

Tonia Daniels, pictured at the Bush Bean Museum with husband Lynn, was back on her feet quickly after having a robotically-assisted hysterectomy at Fort Sanders Regional. wanted any kids. I said, ‘No, we’re just happy having our cat, Matilda,’ ” she says with a laugh. “I was just happy to have the tumors removed.” Still, Daniels was apprehensive. “This was the first surgery I’d ever had and the first time I’d ever been in a hospital for something of that type. I’m used to being in the waiting room, not being the one on the table,” she says. “Dr. McKeown was wonderful at answering our questions and

Fort Sanders is first Tennessee hospital named a Center of Excellence for Minimally Invasive Women’s Surgery Fort Sanders Regional is one of only 30 medical centers in the United States to earn the American Institute of Minimally Invasive Surgery (AIMIS) Gynecological Surgery Center of Excellence designation. Fort Sanders offers laparoscopic and minimally invasive gynecologic surgery, particularly laparoscopic hysterectomy, that has produced excellent patient outcomes and meets the highest standards of quality and safety set by the American Institute of Minimally Invasive Surgery. The Gynecological Center of Excellence designation is important to Knoxville because is gives patients added assurance that Fort Sanders has not only passed and exceeded existing norms for minimally invasive surgery quality and delivery, but also has physicians on staff who have achieved the AIMIS designation as an accredited AIMIS physician as well.

The American Institute of Minimally Invasive Surgery is the nation’s pre-eminent educator of minimally invasive surgical techniques. The organization both teaches minimally invasive methods and also supports graduates and members with opportunities where they can find marketing support, consulting services and strategies to help them grow and strengthen their practices. For those surgeons and hospitals that already meet AIMIS’ strict criteria for minimally invasive outcomes, AIMIS accredits surgeons and designates hospital Centers of Excellence so that patients can find the best standard in minimally invasive care. AIMIS provides resources for patients, corporate partners, and physician members and affiliates to help foster progress throughout the medical profession. For more information, visit

describing exactly what the procedure would be like.” Dr. McKeown recommended using Fort Sanders’ state-of-theart daVinci Surgical Suite, commonly known as “robotic surgery,” for the procedure. Robotic surgery is minimally invasive with just a few small incisions in the patient’s abdomen, instead of a large cut to open the body. Most hysterectomies performed at Fort Sanders are done minimally invasively, either with robotic or laparoscopic

surgery. The hospital is one of just 30 nationwide to be named a Center of Excellence for Minimally Invasive Women’s Surgery by the American Institute of Minimally Invasive Surgery (AIMIS). Daniels is glad Dr. McKeown used a minimally invasive technique for her hysterectomy. “The surgery went excellent; it couldn’t have gone any better,” she says. “The whole experience was easy, compared to what I was expecting.” Daniels recommends Fort Sanders, the robotic system and Dr. McKeown to anyone needing a hysterectomy. “Dr. McKeown is an excellent doctor, and the nursing staff was fantastic,” she says. “I stayed there overnight and got to go home the

next evening.” Outside of being a little tired, Daniels is feeling much better and back to normal activities, spending time with her husband, Lynn Daniels, and of course, Matilda the cat. A week after the surgery, Daniels met again with Dr. McKeown to confirm that everything was fine and that the fibroids were not cancerous. “I wouldn’t wish this on anybody, but if you have to, that’s the way to do it,” she says. “It’s 100 percent worth it, and Fort Sanders is the place to do it, because the care was great.” For more information about minimally invasive gynecological procedures performed at Fort Sanders Regional, call 865-673-FORT or go to

Minimally invasive gynecologic surgery: Makes sense for many women The word “surgery” often conjures up thoughts of severe pain and a lengthy recovery that can disrupt your life and day-to-day activities for weeks or months. For women, traditional surgery that requires large abdominal incisions was once the only option for most gynecologic procedures. Now, with advances in technology and surgical instruments, many procedures for women can be performed minimally invasively, with just a few tiny incisions. Fort Sanders Regional Medical Center is in the forefront of offering a minimally invasive approach – including robotic-assisted laparoscopy surgery – for most noncancerous gynecologic conditions. The benefits for women are undeniable. “There’s less blood loss, less pain, less scarring and a more rapid recovery,” explains Dr. Curtis Elam, an OB/GYN with Fort Sanders Women’s Specialists. “Most patients can go home within 24 hours of surgery, versus staying in the hospital three or four days and having weeks of healing for open surgery.” Hysterectomy, the removal of the uterus, is one of the most commonly performed gynecologic surgeries. Nearly 1/3 of women will undergo this procedure during their lifetime. At Fort Sanders,

a majority of hysterectomies are performed using minimally invasive surgery via laparoscopy or the da Vinci surgical robot. “The robot system gives you great dexterity in your hand movements during the surgery,” says Dr. Elam. “There’s less trauma to the tissue and with the robot’s 3-D view, you can see and seal the blood vessels more rapidly.” Physicians at Fort Sanders also offer minimally invasive surgical options for women suffering from conditions such as uterine fibroids, endometriosis and prolapse. Women suffering from prolapse, a condition in which the structures of the vagina, uterus or bladder fall out of their normal positions, especially benefit from the new surgical technology. “Using the minimally-invasive robot system to repair prolapse is the most rewarding for me,” explains Fort Sanders OB/GYN Dr. Erin Saunders. “Prolapse is a painful, debilitating condition but this procedure fixes it and patients feel

immediate relief.” Patients also leave the hospital more quickly and are back on their feet in a shorter amount of time. Although, depending on their health and specific condition, not all patients may be candidates, Dr. Saunders says the trend towards minimally invasive gynecological surgeries is good news for women in general. “Most women’s lifestyles don’t give them a lot of time to recover from a sickness or surgery. We’re busy taking care of everyone else. Anything that helps us recover and bounce back faster is welcome.” For more information about gynecological surgery options available at Fort Sanders Regional, call 865-673-FORT (3678) or go to

Komen Knoxville saves lives, funds research


ane B Brannon rannon take takes kess th the fight against breast fight cancer personally. The executive director of Komen Knoxville is an 11-year breast cancer survivor herself. â&#x20AC;&#x153;You get a new normal,â&#x20AC;? she says of her diagnosis. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Lifeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never the same.â&#x20AC;? The fight against the disease even changed B r a n n o n â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s professional t r aje c tor y. Two years after her diagnosis, she was on Komen Jane Brannon Knoxvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board, and when the executive director position opened up, she left her marketing job to come aboard. Her goals now mirror the organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s: to promote early breast cancer detec-

tion tio ti on and nd to to provide provid ide ffundunding for screenings. Last year, funding from Komen Knoxville provided screenings that found 43 breast cancers in the 16 counties it serves. Komen Knoxville is the local affi liate of Susan G. Komen for the Cure. It was launched when local psychologist Renee Repka organized the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s first Race for the Cure in 1997. One thousand participants were expected, but more than 2,000 showed up for the 5k run/walk. The Knoxville affi liate was incorporated as a nonprofit in 1999. More than 11,000 participated in the Komen Knoxville Race for the Cure last year. Around 85 percent of the local organizationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s annual revenue comes from race proceeds, says Brannon. The race not

only raises funds f unds d â&#x20AC;&#x201C; it raises raiises awareness. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Everybody learns from the race, not just the runners,â&#x20AC;? she says. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s race is Saturday, Oct. 27. Awareness is important, but itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the next step â&#x20AC;&#x201C; action â&#x20AC;&#x201C; that trips many women up. Even affluent, educated women in Tennessee still struggle with talking about breast cancer openly, says Brannon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We fight against the mores of the region.â&#x20AC;? Focus groups have shown that African-American women are particularly slow to get screened for breast cancer. Many of them view sickness as a sign of weakness. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s important that all women understand that outcomes are generally good for those who are di-

Lifesaving tips from Susan G. Komen for the Cure

â&#x2013; Know your risk by learning about your family health history and talking to your health care provider about your own personal risk. â&#x2013;  Ask your doctor which screening tests are right for you if you are at a higher risk. Get screened by having a mammogram every year starting at age 40 if you are at average risk. Have a clinical breast exam at least every three years starting at age 20 and every year starting at age 40. â&#x2013;  Know what is normal for you and report any changes to your health care provider right away. â&#x2013;  Make healthy lifestyle choices that may reduce your risk of breast cancer.

agnosed early, she says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;If you are screened early, you have a 99 percent chance of long-term survival.â&#x20AC;? Many of the women in Komen Knoxvilleâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s service area donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have access to affordable health care and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have transportation. And while Knox County has several screening and treatment facilities, many surrounding counties do not. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s where Komen Knoxville comes in. The affi liate has provided $4.2 million in community grants since it began. Grant requests are reviewed by an independent committee of community partners, which bases decisions on a bi-annual needs assessment. One recent grant recipient is the Dayspring Family Health Center in Jellico, Tenn., which provides breast health awareness and mammography screening to uninsured and underinsured women in Campbell County. The most encouraging news in the war on breast cancer is that treatment plans are now personalized based on the chance of recurrence. That means that fewer women are being

overtreated, Brannon says. The ultimate goal, of course, is a cure. Komen Knoxville has raised $1.6 million for breast cancer research. Susan G. Komen for the Cureâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s chief scientific adviser, Eric Winer, M.D., has said that he believes that, in his lifetime, breast

cancer will be treated as a chronic (controllable) disease, like diabetes. Until then, Komen Knoxville will continue to push for better care for Knox and surrounding counties. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve saved lives, brought hope and funded research for cures,â&#x20AC;? says Brannon.

Chase, a rescue thoroughbred from the track, is one of the 10 horses at Mane Support. “Chase is really intuitive,” Kim Henry said.

Mane Support:

Horses healing human hearts By Theresa Edwards Mane Support is a nonprofit counseling and support ministry that reaches out to children, adults and families faced with grief and loss caused by cancer. All activities are conducted on the ground. There is no riding. The program is located in Maryville at 2919 Davis Ford Road, but welcomes Knoxville residents as well. The founder and owner, Kim Henry, graduated from Karns High School and earned her master’s degree at UT. “Mane Support is one of the greatest God-given gifts I could have ever asked for,” said Henry. “We hope to provide a place that is safe where people can share their grief, which is a lifechanging process, not an

event. It’s about incorporating that loss back into life again. “The interaction and relationship people develop with the horses help. Horses have a great intuitiveness, enabling them to reflect back to us some feelings that people keep to themselves,” said Henry. For example, when someone is angry while saying they are not, the horse may be running around. “Horses are honest. They live life in the moment and don’t have an agenda,” she says. “They sense things about people.” Chase works especially well with people who do not have good boundaries, who are quiet, not expressing themselves. “He will get in their space,” Henry said. “For people who have lost their voice

metaphorically with the grief they feel, he’s really good in getting them to say they need help. He’s very intuitive.” The horses also give comfort to people. One person who is now a board member used to come in each week and brush Charlie Brown’s mane and cry. Finally, after about the fourth time, she revealed how she would stand and brush Charlie’s mane because it was the last thing she got to do for her daughter before she passed away, to brush her hair. Charlie is the oldest horse and very arthritic because he was a jumper. It’s very difficult for him to stand still. But he would stand perfectly still for the whole hour and let her brush his mane. “This speaks volumes to me

Donna Mara Hardy: Casting for Recovery

By Theresa Edwards Donna Mara Hardy was thrilled when she was chosen to participate in a Casting for Recovery retreat hosted by Petticoat Junction Retreat in Normandy, Tenn. “It’s so beautiful, like a place from out of a book” she said. “I really enjoyed just being with other breast cancer survivors from across the state. We all had a chance to tell our stories and talk about our struggles as well as our joys. It was fun. “I learned a lot about f ly fishing, working with a guide. We even learned how to tie f lies. It was like being a surgeon because it was such technical work. I also learned how to cast. It was a great chance to strengthen the muscles on my right side which were weak from the surgery. So the retreat was great for me both psychologically as well as physically,” Donna said. She has kept in touch with her new friends from the retreat via email. One

group from Nashville calls themselves the “Music City f ly-girls.” Donna keeps busy, although she retired in June from South-Doyle Middle School where she was the assistant principal. “It’s a whole different world,” she said. She volunteers with the Thompson Cancer Survival Center and the American Cancer Society. “South-Doyle was very supportive during my treatment,” she said. “Several of the teachers had T-shirts made, ‘Cherokees are survivors.’ It was a teachable moment for the students who would ask me questions. Some of the students and teachers gave me scarves. One boy gave me about 10 scarves. I probably have a scarf for every outfit.” Women of Wisdom support group has been helpful for issues she faced before, during and after treatments. Her energy levels changed, requiring more rest. She had to be careful of her diet with doctor’s supervision.

Someone at the WOW group gave her Robin Roberts’ book “Eight Rules to Live By.” Rule 7 meant the world to her, “Keep faith, family and friends close to your heart.” “Without my faith, without my family, without my friends, I would not have survived,” Donna said. “Someone was always looking out for me.” Donna has five sisters and three brothers. Her older brother, Audrey Hardy, had his church in Columbus, Ohio, involved. “I got a card in the mail every day,” she said. She has many supportive friends who stayed with her, encouraged her, watched out for her. Another quote from Roberts’ book that impacted her life was “Make your mess your message.” From that, Donna pondered “OK, what am I going to do with all of this?” Donna has shared her testimony to others, giving her message to the world, speaking at her church and other places.

“Cancer is a turning point. I realized it was time for me to do something different,” Donna said. She is now taking seminary classes and plans to go on a mission trip to Jamaica with her church group. “My slogan is: Work to inspire, not to retire,” she said. “You’re always growing, always learning.” For more information about the Casting for Recovery support group, visit www.CastingForRecovery. org.

Day-to-day joy By Cindy Taylor Angie Cook was diagnosed with aggressive breast cancer on Sept. 21, 2010. When she was given the news, her primary concern wasn’t for herself but for her family. With two children, Laura and Daniel, then 8 and 4 respectively, Cook’s first thought was about their care and how hard it would be for her husband, Tommy, if she couldn’t be there for them. “I wasn’t afraid of dying. I am very secure in my faith,” said Cook. “I was scared for my children because they were so young. I knew God would take care of them but that fear was my initial reaction.” Cook has a sister in Australia and her parents were visiting there when she was told about the cancer. For three weeks she had no female in her life that she could confide in while she waited for them to return to the states. “I couldn’t tell them or anyone here because I didn’t want to break the news while they were so far away or have them

hear it from someone else,” said Cook. “I confided in my husband and in Mike (Bundon) because I knew they would keep it private.” When her parents returned to their home in North Carolina, Cook still had to break the news by phone. They immediately came to help during Cook’s surgery. Two years later, Cook is now cancer free and looking to the future. She has worked at Beaver Dam Baptist Church for the past six years as music associate to former choir director Mike Bundon. With Bundon’s retirement in June, Cook has been moved to interim choir director but says that will not lead to a permanent position for her. With a master’s in music and a teaching background, she says her passion is for kids and children’s music. A Halls resident for the past 12 years, and with both children in Halls Elementary, Cook is hoping to achieve a position as a music teacher at the elementary school level.

Taylor Today, Cook is an energetic, thankful and joyful person who is f lourishing physically, emotionally, and in her family and career. She says she never takes the day-to-day things for granted. She cuddles with her children more often, kisses on them and makes sure to tell her husband of 15 years how much she loves

him as often as possible. “God is my solid rock. He has prepared me for this time in my life,” said Cook. “For me, getting up and leading the choir here is a miracle. I sometimes get weepy when we are singing because I realize how much God loves me and that He spared me. I know He still has a job for me to do.”

Helping others heal By Cindy Taylor Judy Gray has now lived five years as a breast cancer survivor. After Judy underwent a mastectomy, Jan Harness, also a breast cancer survivor, gave her a small heart-shaped pillow to place under her arm to help with the pain. This was such a blessing to Judy that she was inspired to find a way to help other women diagnosed with the disease. “The pillow fits underneath my arm and helped me so much by taking the pressure off,” said Gray. “The Lord put it on my heart to provide this blessing to others, but I wasn’t quite sure how to begin.” Gray found out that in her small church, Irwins Chapel UMC, there were at least four other women who had been diagnosed with breast cancer. This is a huge percentage in a church that has an average attendance of 50. She made an announcement one Sunday that she would like to start a pillow ministry, and to her shock 10

wome women men n showed up p for for th the he first meeting. Gray had only bought 1 yard of material thinking that would be all that was needed. It was used very quickly. She then bought 7 yards of material and the group went through that as well. On one of her trips to UT Medical Center for treatment, Gray visited the boutique. Betty Collins, who runs the boutique, asked if the group might consider making the pillows to give to others who had undergone breast surgery. As the ministry continued to grow so did Gray’s cost. She was now buying entire bolts of cloth. “We are just a small church and I wasn’t sure how we were going to support this ministry,” said Gray. “Donations started coming in and we knew God wanted us to do this.” The group has grown in number and today most of the women in the church participate. To date they have made 990 pillows, all of which are given free of charge to anyone who requests them. The women get together and cut, sew and stuff between 50 and 70 pillows each session. They have breakfast

The women of Irwins Chapel UMC gather to make heart pillows to send out to breast cancer survivors around the U.S. Pictured are: (front) Judy Gray, Jan Harness, Sylvia Jardine, Pat Blackburn; (middle row) Veronica Griffey, Jerri Crews, Marty McConnaughey, Sue Shick, Marilyn Winquist, Carol Sharpe; (back) Sue Ross.

In breast cancer detection, the test matters in breast cancer detection by making mammograms more detailed and accurate.

Important facts every woman should know

Catching breast cancer early Studies show that when breast cancer is detected early the chance for successful treatment is nearly 100 percent. Mammograms are a critical component of a successful screening program. In fact, mammograms can identify an abnormal breast mass up to two years before it can be detected by touch. It’s for this reason that the American Cancer Society recommends every woman, every year, starting at the age of 40, get a mammogram.

One in eight American women will be diagnosed with breast cancer in their lifetime. However, early detection coupled with advanced treatment options has cut mortality rates by a third in the U.S. over the past 20 years. Today, a new breakthrough technology is poised to provide a dramatic improvement

Dr. Susan Curry, founder and medical director of the Women’s Center for Radiology in Orlando, says that 3D mammography makes a real difference in the center’s ability to diagnose patients with dense breasts and women with other high-risk factors.

A new imaging technology called 3D mammography or breast tomosynthesis is changing how doctors screen for breast cancer. This sophisticated technology significantly improves breast cancer screening by identifying small cancers that may have been missed by traditional mammography. If cancers are found when they are small, treatment options are generally less traumatic and the chance for a cure is greater. Another benefit of 3D mammography is its ability to reduce stress-inducing call backs. As many as one out of 10 women who have a routine screening mammogram will be asked to come back for additional tests. The majority of these women - up to 80 percent -

Special Sections MYFITNESS, 1/02 MyLIFE, 1/23 MYOUTDOORS, 2/27 MyPLACE, 4/02 MyKIDS, 5/07 MyOUTDOORS, 6/04 MyLIFE, 7/16 MYKIDS, 8/06 MyPLACE, 10/08 MyHOLIDAY, 11/12 MyHOLIDAY, 12/03 MyFITNESS, 12/31

will experience what’s called a false-positive which means that an area that looked suspicious on their screening mammogram turned out, upon further testing, to be normal.

3D mammography makes finding breast cancers easier Current mammography relies on a 2D image. However, this technology has its limits because the breast is a 3-dimensional object composed of different structures, such as blood vessels, milk ducts, fat, and ligaments. All of these structures, which are located at different heights within the breast, can overlap and cause confusion when viewed as a 2-dimensional, flat image. This confusion of overlapping tissue is a leading reason why small breast cancers may be missed and normal tissue may appear abnormal, leading to unnecessary call backs. Many doctors have reported that the introduction of Hologic’s Selenia Dimensions tomosynthesis system improves breast cancer detection by overcoming many of the limitations inherent in conventional 2D mammography. Although patients will notice little difference between a 2D and a 3D mammogram, the 3D technology gives doctors a clearer view through the overlapping structures of breast tissue. Reading a breast tomosynthesis exam is like flipping through the pages of a book to view one page at a time instead of seeing the whole breast reduced to a single frame, as is the case with conventional 2D mammography. The ability to look at each layer of breast tissue millimeter by millimeter allows doctors to identify individual structures in the breast free from the confusion of overlying tissue.

The bottom line Women should talk to their physician about the best screening program for them, based on their age, family history and medical profile. Women need to pay attention to any changes, such as unusual lumps, swelling, irritation, dimpling, or pain in the breast or nipple.

Free cancer resource guides help patients navigate cancer journey When Bar Barbara rba b ra a George’s Georg eo ge’ e’s friend and colleague in busii tthe he media busi ness was diagnosed with a recurrence of breast cancer 11 years ago, George volunteered to help her figure out her next steps. But what they did not find surprised them. “We thought, here we are as marketers and we’re having trouble finding needed resources in our community. What difficulties might others also be having?” says George of Kansas City, Mo. “We were looking for resources - like wig shops, local support groups and even local physicians - but finding them was proving to be time-consuming and unsuccessful. It was really frustrating.” The two women started researching local resources for people living with cancer. They felt

strongly that a compreh comprehensive, hens nsiiv ive, ive e, lolocal resource guide filled filled wi with canith can cer information for the newly diagnosed could truly help others on their cancer journey. They collaborated with George’s friend’s doctor at the University of Kansas Cancer Center to make this a reality. In 2001, George created Cancer Matters, a grassroots, communitybased initiative, aimed at tackling this information gap that faced individuals living with cancer and their loved ones. She developed the Cancer Matters Resource Guides, free booklets featuring a comprehensive listing of local cancerrelated businesses and services. Resources include cancer support groups, hospital services, home health and more. They also provide tips for the newly diagnosed and in-

formation on health and wellness. “The beauty of these guides is that they are local, comprehensive and were developed by someone who has walked in your shoes,” says George. “I am hopeful that in the future, we can bring Cancer Matters to all cities across the nation.” These comprehensive resource guides are available in 35 U.S. cities. The guides are updated and distributed annually to local hospitals, physician’s offices, nonprofit organizations and support groups. They are also available online at or by calling 913-3857332. Cancer Matters is supported by Lilly Oncology. Lilly Oncology does not control the content of the resource guides or website. – ARA
