TDOT to widen Concord Road The Tennessee Department of Transportation (TDOT) will host a public meeting 5-7 p.m. Thursday, May 31, at the Farragut Town Hall to gather public input on the proposed widening of SR-332 (Concord Road), from Turkey Creek Road to Northshore Drive in Knox County. The purpose of this project is to widen the 2-lane Concord Road to four lanes, each 12-feet wide, with curbs and gutters. The project will accommodate 4-foot bike lanes and have a 12-foot center left turn lane that transitions to a 14-foot raised median island, according to the TDOT release. This section of roadway will feature two pedestrian facilities: a 5-foot sidewalk and an 8-foot greenway, both to be separated from the adjacent roadway by a 3- to 8-foot grass strip. TDOT representatives will be available to provide information on various aspects of this proposed project. Anyone with questions should contact: Paul Beebe, survey and design manager, at or 594-2442.

This week at Karns High By Theresa Edwards Karns High School will present the musical “Oklahoma!” this week, April 18-21, with performances at 1:20 p.m. Wednesday, 7 p.m. Thursday, 9 a.m. and 7 p.m. Friday, and 2 p.m. Saturday. “Oklahoma!” is best known for its lively songs. It is the first musical written by the team of Richard Rodgers and Oscar Hammerstein. The musical is set in Oklahoma Territory outside the town of Claremore in 1906 as cowboy Curly McLain romances farm girl Laurey Williams. A secondary romance concerns cowboy Will Parker and Ado Annie, a friend of Laurey’s.

“People Will Say We’re In Love,” is perhaps the best-known song from the musical. And at the risk of giving away the plot, the good guys live happily ever after. The second act starts with an upbeat square dance and a brawl as the local farmers battle cowboys over fences and water rights. The original Broadway production opened on March 31, 1943. It was a box-office smash and ran for an unprecedented 2,212 performances, later enjoying award-winning revivals, national tours, foreign productions and an Academy Award-winning 1955 film adaptation, according to Wikipedia.

By Theresa Edwards Pellissippi State Community College celebrated the selection of its new president, L. Anthony Wise Jr., with the Presentation of the Presidential Regalia on April 10. The ceremony began with a procession led by mechanical engineering professor Chuck Wright carrying the mace he co-designed, a symbol of office. Following was a procession of the academic banners. Several people presented greetings to the president. The Tennessee Board of Regents Chancellor John Morgan said, “Dr. Wise has demonstrated his commitment to student success … and he has clearly demonstrated his commitment to Pellissippi State. I know he will continue moving Pellissippi State forward on many ambitious pathways.” The ceremonial robe and chain of office were presented to

3. To travel to places I haven’t gone yet: Spain, Northern Italy, Alaska, Yellowstone.”

What is one word others often use to describe you? “Relentless. And I’m sure that isn’t always meant as a compliment.”

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? “My intelligence. I wish I didn’t have to work so hard at learning things ... and math weren’t a foreign language.”

What is your passion? “Being a mom. It is the greatest thing in my life. I know that is what I was meant to do – mother.”

Yvonne Kidder

Yvonne and Jon Kidder are waiting to double the size of their family. The couple, who are the franchise owners of Einstein Bros. Bagels at Cedar Bluff and Farragut, are parents to Jack, 12; Megan, 18; and Elizabeth, 21. Jack and Megan are Farragut students, and Elizabeth is at the College of Art and Design in Savannah, Ga. Waiting in Haiti at the Good Neighbor Orphanage are three boys: Lele, 7; Daniel, 8; and Eclesias, 10. The Kidders are adopting them, hopefully this year. “We first went to Haiti in October of 2010,” says Yvonne. “Our intention was to spend some time at the orphanage and see if adopting a child was right for us. We knew we wanted a boy, and someone younger than Jack, but not an infant.” Daniel stole their hearts. “We played with Daniel and got to know him. We knew we wanted him to be in our family.” They learned that Daniel had an older brother, Eclesias, and adoptions were not allowed to split up siblings. “We totally agreed with that,” says Yvonne. “So we asked to be introduced to a child who did not have siblings.” They met Lele and spent time with him. “We kept going back-and-forth: two or one; two or one? “The right choice was really clear, so we told the orphanage: We want all three.” They have been back twice since the first visit, and Yvonne hopes it will not be much longer before her family is all under one roof. New chapters aren’t new at all for the Kidders. Yvonne was a stay-at-home mom, and Jon was in a corporate job that included a lot of travel. Three years ago, Jon decided to start his own business. After much research, the couple, who will celebrate their 26th wedding anniversary this year, decided on Einstein Bros. Bagels. “Einstein was just opening up franchise opportunities, and it was a good fit,” says Yvonne. “I grew up in the North and thought Farragut needed a good bagel place. Everything fell into place, and we opened at Cedar Bluff first. Now we have our Farragut store and plans for more in Knox, Loudon or Anderson counties in coming years.” Yvonne is an active partner. “Jon handles all the business part, and I handle marketing, advertising and special events. And we both work at the stores as well, doing whatever needs to be done.” Sit and have a Coffee Break as you get to know Yvonne Kidder:

With whom would you most like to have a long lunch? “My dad, Frank Rowan. I want to ask him all those things you don’t think about when you are 23 and expect your parents to be around a lot longer.”

Other than your parents, who has had the biggest influence on your life and why? “I would have to say my Nana. She died when I was only 13, but she was the sweetest woman. Her faith was so strong, and her presence so peaceful. She never raised her voice or spoke poorly about anyone. She was selfless, and you just felt so loved and nurtured in her presence.”

I still can’t quite get the hang of … “Excel. No matter how many spreadsheets I create, I still can’t create formulas. It’s that math thing again.”

What is the best present you ever received in a box? What is your favorite quote from a TV show or movie? “In ‘The Two Towers’ from ‘Lord of the Rings,’ Eowyn is asked what she fears. She says: ‘A cage. To stay behind bars until use and old age accept them and all chance of valor has gone beyond recall or desire.’ I love that quote and her character because of the example of being such a strong woman.”

What are you guilty of? “Being too controlling. I have a hard time letting go and letting others succeed or fail without ‘helicoptering.’ ”

What is your favorite material possession? “My father’s crucifi x necklace. He wore it every day of his married life until he died when I was only 23. He was not materialistic and had few possessions when he died. I have had it since he died and whenever I am dealing with something difficult or traveling, I take it out and wear it. I feel close to him when I wear it.”

What are you reading currently? “The Rose Bush” by Michele Jaffe.

What was your most embarrassing moment? “I embarrass myself almost weekly. It normally involves falling, tripping, twisting an ankle or knocking myself unconscious with a push cart. That was just last week.”

What are the top three things on your bucket list? “1. For my boys to come home from Haiti. 2. To raise money to build a new orphanage in Haiti. The one we are adopting from was damaged in the earthquake in January 2010.

“My 20th anniversary ring. And it wasn’t so much that it was in a box, as it was in a box in a hot air balloon over Napa Valley while my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary.”

What is the best advice your mother ever gave you? “Never go to bed angry! I always think of that. She gave me a plaque to hang in my room as well. I have tried in 25 years of marriage to follow that advice.”

What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon? “Really? I can’t pick one. I used to love getting the new TV Guide to see what the new cartoons would be about. ‘Josie and the Pussycats,’ ‘H.R. Pufnstuf’ and ‘The Land of the Lost’ were certainly favorites.”

What irritates you? “Entitlement! When anyone feels entitled, and they treat someone poorly or if they think that something is owed them ‘just because,’ it frustrates me.”

What’s one place in Farragut everyone should visit? “The Cove at Christmas time. I love to take a carriage ride around the park and see the Christmas lights.”

If you could do one impulsive thing, what would it be? “Leave everything for a month and go spend it in Haiti with the children at Good Neighbor Orphanage. I would love nothing more than to play with the kids, teach the women a trade or English.” It can be your neighbor, club leader, bridge partner, boss, father, teacher – anyone you think would be interesting to Farragut Shopper-News readers.

government No notice to Breeding As partisans challenge her right to run Imagine you’re a candidate and the election commission says you’re not a bona fide Knox County resident and schedules a meeting to compel you go to court to defend your right to run. You’d appreciate them telling you when and where the above-mentioned meeting was going to happen, wouldn’t you? Of course you would. And so would Shelley Breeding, the lone Democrat in the running for the new 89th District seat in the Te n n e s s e e House of Breeding Representatives. She lives in the Elizabeth Downs subdivision in Karns. The Anderson County line runs through her property. Knox County Election Commission administrator Cliff Rodgers challenged Breeding’s right to run for the Knox County House seat because she pays her property taxes to Anderson County through a mortgage company. She is a registered Knox County voter. State election coordinator Mark Goins, a former legislator who holds a law degree, agrees with Rodgers. In a letter dated Wednesday, April 11, he opined that Breeding should be voting in Anderson County but said he figured this issue would end up in court, so he directed the Knox County Election Commission to go to Chancery Court and ask for a declaratory judgment to settle it. Breeding, also an attorney, says she meets the preponderance of the statutory criteria required to satisfy residency requirements and says she wishes Rodgers had notified her of the election commission meeting set for 8:30 a.m. Thursday, although she may be obliged to be elsewhere. “We haven’t been invited to present anything at all at this meeting,” Breeding said. “And I’m on jury duty – in Knox County – next week. They’ve called a meeting to dispute my status as a Knox County resident while I’m on Knox

County jury duty starting Monday morning. That seems ironic. We’re not sure what they’re going to be doing at this meeting and they don’t send us anything, so I would have had no way of knowing about it if (a reporter) hadn’t forwarded it to me. That’s just amazing.” She also pays Knox County’s wheel tax and personal property taxes and said she consulted the election commission when she moved to her new home in 2008. She was advised that she and her husband could make a one-time choice between Knox or Anderson County as their official residency. “It’s not like we’ve been in Anderson County and tried to sneak in. When we bought this lot, there was no house on it. Now, under Mark Goins’ theory, we could put a front balcony on our master bedroom and suddenly our house is in Knox County. It doesn’t make sense. He’s relying on a 1931 court case instead of the statute. Maybe that’s why he went into government, not law.” Is she going to fight? “I think so. I think I know the law. I’m a Knox County resident and I have been for years.”

GOSSIP AND LIES ■ Harry Brooks says the House unanimously passed a bill “that continues the fight against bath salts.” Take more showers, people! ■ Wow! One day you’re making $3.5 million and riding your bike with your girl. Next day you’re unemployed with a broken back. Luckily, Bobby Petrino has a wife to pick up the pieces. Errr, doesn’t he??? ■ Weston Wamp, 25, says there’s a serious need for new blood in Washington. His dad, Zach, served in Congress for 16 years. New blood? Somewhere John Duncan III is taking notes. ■ John Schmid took to task his fellow members of the county’s Charter Review Committee by pointing out they had burned up 45 minutes of a 2-hour meeting debating a motion to defer. “We may be here until hell freezes over before we get anything done,” he said.

TVA: Lost in the valley What causes TVA to behave in such an arrogant manner? What has happened to an agency which used to command such respect and support within the Valley? Today TVA is seen as bloated, big salaries, arrogant and insensitive to taxpayer concerns. It is often their way or the highway. CEO Tom Kilgore has generated new enemies for TVA, assisted by a board of directors which declines to intervene for ratepayers. The current controversy over tree cuttings within Knoxville and Knox County symbolizes this situation. TVA has managed to irritate people who normally don’t take sides on TVA issues. Clear cutting all trees under the power lines is not required and is harmful to the environment. TVA claims trimming trees over thousands of miles would be too costly. Being lectured by TVA on cost savings is hard to take. Only a week ago Kilgore, who is paid millions annually, admitted a $2 billion error at Watts

Fixing the Uniformed Officers Pension Plan By Sandra Clark With a little luck, the Charter Review Committee will get a proposal on the November ballot to rein in the Uniformed Officers Pension Plan. With its defined benefit and mandated three percent annual cost of living increase, the UOPP has become the beast that ate the budget. With the school board asking for $7 million a year for 5 years over a continuation budget, we’re looking at just over $8 million as Knox County’s contribution to its various pension plans in the upcoming budget, according to Commission chair Mike Hammond. Of that, $4.6 million is required for the UOPP. The Charter Review Committee formed a 5-member subcommittee to bring a specific proposal about UOPP reform. Farragut resident Diane Jablonski is the subcommittee’s secre-

Bar. Two billion dollars is not a minor oversight. Someone was asleep on this one. TVA celebrated the opening of the Dogwood Arts Festival last Wednesday with the clear cutting of trees off Wellington Drive in West Hills. What clueless TVA leader made the decision to do this the same day civic leaders launched this year’s Dogwood Festival? Is TVA also clear cutting trees within the national parks and national forests where their power lines go? TVA is also worrying about dress codes for their public hearings which now has them in federal court. Why bother? Doesn’t TVA have more important things to do than telling Chris Lee not to wear red

paint to a public hearing? Who cares? And now they have four attorneys on the case in federal court – all at taxpayer expense. No doubt they will have four more attorneys on the Westminster tree cutting case, also now in federal court. TVA has lost its way in the valley. Mike Hammond says he is not applying to be CEO of the Knoxville Tourism and Sports Corporation (Gloria Ray’s old job) until the differences between KTSC and Mayor Tim Burchett are resolved. He does not want to be in the middle of that situation. It needs to be resolved anyway. Burchett helped force the issue which ultimately forced Ray to depart. Some KTSC board members are still miffed over Burchett and Rogero intervening and demanding Ray’s ouster. The KTSC’s current plan to hold public hearings on the public’s views should be co-ordinated with Mayors Burchett and Rogero if they want buy in

for the final product. Right now KTSC does not seem to be working closely with Burchett. Election Commission member Dennis Francis, one of two Democratic members, missed the March 26 Commission meeting. No explanation was given. Francis is bright and informed. He is an astute partisan. His absence is a loss for Democrats. City Council member Duane Grieve attended the recent Island Home waterfront hearing. I failed to include him as being present along with five other council members. Audio there was nonexistent. City is working to find a new sound system for public hearings. That’s something they needed yesterday. Gov. Bill Haslam will be at Blount Mansion on Friday afternoon, April 20. He has recommended $500,000 in the state budget for the Mansion’s capital campaign which will help considerably in restoring the Mansion from serious deterioration. He earns our thanks for this good use of tax dollars for historic preservation.

tary. Other members are chair Keith Lindsey, manager of the Home Federal Bank at Downtown West; County Commissioners Amy Broyles and Mike Brown; and retired county Finance Department official Jablonski Ann Acuff. “I’m more about fi xing language than writing a pension plan,” said Jablonski. “The intent (when voters approved the UOPP) was to create a special plan with richer benefits for uniformed officers over and above what the general employees have. I support that intent,” she said. But Jablonski wants to remove the specifics from the charter to enable County Commission to deal with changes over

time. “It’s crucial to note that the Blackwell decision prevents anyone – voters or the commission – from changing benefits from anyone now hired, even if the employee has not worked five years to be vested. If he or she stays employed for five year and vests in the pension, those benefits cannot be changed.” So the subcommittee met last week with Broyles absent. On a 4-0 vote, the group removed “defined benefit” from Section A and eliminated Sections B and C. They will meet again to consider Sections D and E, Jablonski said. These sections should not be eliminated, Jablonski said. The subcommittee’s recommendations will go to the full 27-member Charter Review Committee which can accept them, reject them or change them. Changes adopted will go to voters. Stay tuned.

It was true, too, in the Civil War, Flagel says, especially in communities caught in the midst of mayhem. Don’t forget that both Shiloh and Gettysburg, for example, were basically hamlets. The mention of Gettysburg gelled into another point. “We have hindsight,” Flagel said. “Even Lee did not know he was headed to Gettysburg.” The largest battle ever fought in the Northern Hemisphere happened where it did because two armies bumped into one another. Most of the newspapers thought Lee was headed to Harrisburg, Pa. Chaos, confusion and rumor were rampant. Few reporters got to Gettysburg in a timely manner. (Yep, most were in Harrisburg.) The Baltimore American, for example, reported on July 3, 1863, “no engagement (had

happened) at Gettysburg up to four this evening.” They hadn’t yet heard about Pickett’s Charge. One newspaper reported that Gen. George B. McClellan was killed at Gettysburg. He wasn’t even there. In spite of what the newspapers said, even Abraham Lincoln considered the fall of Vicksburg, Miss., which also happened the first week of July 1863, as the pivotal battle of the war. In fact, he called Gettysburg a defeat. But when Lincoln heard the news from Vicksburg, he said, “It is great. It is great. I see the end of the war!” Many believed at first that Gettysburg was a prequel to something worse, merely the first shot in a coming slaughter. Trenches were dug in Philadelphia, just in case. “Don’t listen to the history,” Flagel said. “Look at the evidence.” Reporters had to work. They didn’t know how long a battle would last. When the smoked cleared they then had to find a telegraph office. Many generals – like today – didn’t even want them around. William T. Sherman said reporters were worse than spies. Spies gathered information for their country. Reporters did so for money.

And forget the inverted pyramid style of newspaper writing. Because each and every letter had to be set into type one at a time, the freshest news could often be found in the middle or at the end of a story, sometimes on Page 2 or Page 3. Names, even of the generals, were misspelled; those wounded but living were reported dead (including Ar-

thur MacArthur, Gen. Douglas MacArthur’s father). “Accuracy,” Flagel said, “is the first casualty of war.” The Knoxville Civil War Roundtable meets monthly each second Tuesday at Bearden Banquet Hall. Info: kcwrt/ or visit its page on Facebook.

Neyland and not because he wore boots or a wide-brimmed hat. If Hill hit a runner or receiver and didn’t get a clean knockdown, he “wrangled” his foe to the ground as a rodeo cowboy might throw a calf. Neyland loved the competitive spirit. Teammates loved the label. The tag stuck. Hill was a hero in the 1951 Cotton Bowl victory over Texas. Lauricella had the historic 75-yard run. Kozar scored twice. Cowboy made

big fourth-quarter plays that proved pivotal. With the Longhorns leading 14-13 and driving, Hill intercepted a pass and returned 28 yards. Tennessee fumbled away that opportunity but Texas fumbled it back on the next play – and Hill recovered. The Vols responded with the winning touchdown. Hill was a winner. He played on the NFL champion Detroit Lions in ’51. After a military climb to colonel, he played briefly with Pittsburgh and finished with the Ottawa Rough Riders. He was state chair of the Selective Service System. He was a businessman and chair of the Blount

County chamber of commerce. He served on the Maryville City Council. He was on two bank boards. He was president of the UT lettermen’s club when the golf tournament idea hatched. Others found that a good reason to tie his name to the event. There was only one Cowboy but there are hundreds of former Volunteers who played a part in what Tennessee athletics used to be. Many added other significant accomplishments. Each has a story. Old Vols are very interesting. They deserve to be remembered.

PULL UP A CHAIR … | Jake Mabe

The first casualty of war The realization, when it came, smacked Thomas Flagel right in the face. Flagel, an assistant professor of American history at Columbia State Community College in Columbia, Tenn., has been studying the Civil War, and reading newspapers from the period, all of his professional life. He said, though, that for years he missed what had literally been right in front of him. “The newspapers were telling me the Confederacy was dying when the editors weren’t,” Flagel told the Knoxville Civil War Roundtable at Bearden Banquet Hall last week. He spoke on “Messengers of Death: How the Press Presented the Civil War.” When Southern printing presses died, Flagel said, parts to replace them were in the North. Northern newspapers

had a oneto two-day response time to n e w s ; Southern newspapers had a oneto two-week Thomas Flagel r e s p o n s e time, “when things were good.” The North had 12,000 miles of telegraph lines; the South had about 500. Seventy percent of Southern newspapers shut down during a two-year period. “The Confederacy was bleeding to death, including in ink and print.” In a crisis, Flagel says, humans desire information. It’s part of our fight or flight instinct. It is still true in the 21st century. On Sept. 11, 2001, for example, Internet usage increased 1,000 percent.

Old Vols gathering This is fellowship week for old Vols. A hundred or more former Tennessee athletic lettermen will gather for golf on Friday at Avalon. Hall of Fame linebacker Steve Kiner has been practicing. Fleet receiver-running back Stanley Morgan will participate. Old tailback Herky Payne will talk a very good game but probably won’t play. Chick-fil-A will feed the multitude. Balls will fly, some in the designed direction. Gift bags, plaques and prizes will follow. Judy Constantine, the

The forgotten story of the Sultana HISTORY AND MYSTERIES | Dr. Jim Tumblin

More were killed in boat disaster than in the Titanic Although its history has been largely neglected in Civil War studies, the sinking of the Sultana on April 27, 1865, affected many families in East Tennessee along with families in Indiana, Kentucky, Michigan and Ohio. Most of the approximately 2,100 Union soldiers on the side-wheeler packet boat had been freed from Confederate prisons at Andersonville (Ga.) and Cahaba (Ala.) and were in weakened condition. With the 100 civilian passengers and 85-person crew, almost 2,300 people were aboard. The 400 troopers of the 3rd Tennessee Cavalry (USA) were by far the largest unit of military passengers. Many of them from Blount, Knox, McMinn and Monroe counties had been captured by Gen. Nathan B. Forrest at Athens and Sulphur Branch Trestle, Ala. on Sept. 24-25, 1864. When exchanged for Confederate prisoners held by the North at the end of the war, they had been sent to Camp Fisk near Vicksburg, Miss., to be processed before they were transported to Camp Chase, Ohio, for discharge from the army. Their eagerness to do whatever it took to get home and the disorganization and corruption of the officers in charge of their transportation allowed far too many to board the boat, which had a rated capacity of only 376. The river boat company was collecting $5 per enlisted soldier and $10 per officer and, although he knew the ship was vastly overloaded, the captain finally approved his human cargo

and began the trip upriver toward Memphis at 9 p.m. April 24. It was significant that one of the boat’s four large boilers was found to be leaking prior to reaching Vicksburg and, rather than taking the three days required to replace the boiler, a patch was placed over the bulge in less than a day. In addition to the perilous overloading of the boat, the Mississippi River was at flood stage as the heavy snows of a severe winter in the northern states had thawed and added that volume to that of the usual spring rains. The Sultana’s two engines labored under the strain. Proceeding upriver, the boat reached Memphis at 7 p.m. April 26. After unloading some cargo and after taking on coal on the Arkansas side of the river, the Sultana had reached a series of small islands called Paddy’s Hens and Chickens seven miles above Memphis where the swollen river was nearly four miles wide. It was 2 a.m. on the black, cloudy night of April 27. As most of the passengers slept on the crowded decks, one of the huge tubed boilers exploded with a volcanic fury that a witness on the shore described as the sound of a hundred earthquakes. Soon two more boilers exploded. Splintered debris and live coals filled the sky. Scalding water and clouds of steam showered the prisoners. Hundreds were killed outright or blown into the water to drown. The upper decks soon collapsed and many unfortunate souls, trapped in the resulting wreckage, could only await certain death as fire spread throughout the hull. Within 20 minutes the entire superstructure was burning.

Until 1930, the survivors of the disaster gathered each April for a reunion. Shown here at the 1920 reunion are P.M. Keeble, Wallace Milesap, G.W. Hulett, Pryor Draper, D.A. Headrick, J.H. Simpson and A.P. Varnell. Photo courtesy of the C.M. McClung Historical Collection

The burning wreckage began to drift slowly downriver. Only 76 life preservers and two small lifeboats were on board, so most of those who survived had jumped into the river. Hundreds were struggling there in the water when the first rescue boat, the Bostonia II, arrived at about 3 a.m. Other vessels eventually joined the rescue. By about 3:30 a.m. cries could be heard out across the river as some of the passengers floated down on bits of lumber. Cutters from the gunboats began sweeping the river for survivors. When dawn came, the remains of the Sultana had drifted to the west bank of the Mississippi and sank off the tiny settlement of Mound City, Ark. All up and down the river citizens still worked to rescue those floating by in the water or those who had found refuge in tree tops that were nearly cov-

Since there was no accurate count of those who were boarded at Vicksburg, there is no accurate count of those who died. The most reliable sources place the death toll at more than 1,700, (compared to the 1,517 who died when the Titanic sank on April 14, 1912). A court of inquiry was soon appointed to investigate the tragedy. Neither that group nor others who investigated the disaster later held anyone liable for the appalling overcrowding. The supervising inspector of steamboats shed the most light on the cause of the tragedy. He concluded that the quick repair

to the boiler at Vicksburg was made with a metal plate too thin to stand the pressure of the steam. For many years the local survivors of the Sultana Disaster met on April 27 to commemorate the loss of their comrades, often at Mt. Olive Baptist Church on Maryville Pike. When Pleasant M. Keeble of Vestal passed away in 1931, the last known local survivor was laid to rest in the Eusebia Presbyterian Church Cemetery in Blount County.

Noted author to speak for It was the Emerald Youth Foundation worst of times Emerald Youth Foundation will welcome nationallyknown researcher and author George Barna on Friday, May 4, at the Knoxville Expo Center. Barna will speak at Emerald Youth’s prayer breakfast at 7 a.m. He will discuss his belief that children should be a church’s No. 1 priority. Based on his book “Transforming Children into Spiritual Champions,” Barna will explain why he didn’t just “miss the boat” on this subject, he “missed the ocean.” The annual fundraising event will also include the meaningful story of an Emerald Youth alumnus; praise and worship music by the

Emerald Youth choir; and the launch of Emerald Youth Fellows to serve urban high school seniors. Following the breakfast, Emerald Youth will offer a free special session with Barna designed specifically for pastors and Christian leaders. Topics will include America’s world views and how churches can become more involved in facilitating a Biblical world view. The presentation will be held 8:30 to 10 a.m. Anyone in Christian leadership is welcome to attend. Barna has written 48 books about leadership, trends, church health and spiritual growth. He found-

Though the fig tree does not blossom, and no fruit is on the vines; though the produce of the olive fails and the fields yield no food; though the flock is cut off from the fold and there is no herd in the stalls, yet I will rejoice in the Lord; I will exult in the God of my salvation. (Habakkuk 3: 17-18 NRSV)

I have seen him. I have not heard his story firsthand, but two people I trust completely have told me the saga. We believe the story is true. His young daughter died of meningitis. A few years later his wife died of cancer. He and his son lost a house to floods and moved to another state, where their house was ripped apart by a tornado. I don’t know his name, but I call him Job. I can’t imagine how he gets up in the morning. I can’t fathom how he remembers to breathe in and out. I am grateful, for his sake, that his son lives here, but I also can’t imagine the sense of dread, the wondering “What’s next?” that must pervade every day of their lives. What does such tragedy mean? That God is out to get him? That God is indifferent to human suffering? That God is testing him? That God has favorites, or contrariwise,

Lynn Hutton


God has scapegoats? That God is powerless? I say a resounding “No” to all of those. At least, intellectually that is what I believe. When I can think rationally about it, I believe that God set some rules in place in the natural world: cells divide (a good thing), but sometimes they get overzealous in their multiplication and cancer occurs. Winds blow, spreading seeds around, moving weather systems from one place to another and bringing needed rain. Except that sometimes there is more rain and wind than our human-made houses can withstand. It behooves us all to

remember the truth of a line from Robert Bolt’s “A Man for All Seasons,” (my all-time favorite play and movie). Sir Thomas More, imprisoned by King Henry VIII for his firm refusal to take the Oath of Allegiance (concerning the King’s marriage to Anne Boleyn), and tried for treason, remarks with wisdom and foreboding and resignation at his trial, “Death comes for us all; even for kings he comes.” Death is inevitable. It is also remarkably indifferent to our hopes, and dreams and aspirations. It cares not that we have been hurt before, or that we will be lonely without our parent, or spouse or child. So can we, like Habakkuk, look steadfastly at all the suffering and calamity around us, realize that we have nothing – nothing! – and still be able to say, “…yet I will rejoice in the Lord …exult in the God of my salvation.” I trust so. Because as long as we have God (or, more accurately, as long as God has us) we do not have “nothing,” and we can indeed rejoice in the Lord. I will pray for “Job.” I invite you to do the same, for him, and for all who suffer misfortune and sickness and loneliness and despair. Pray for healing, pray for hope, pray for wholeness. And give thanks to God for all your blessings!

Soccer refs needed AYSO Nationals in Knoxville July 1-8 By Theresa Edwards Bob Denne is the coordinator of referees for the upcoming AYSO 2012 National Games, which are coming to Knox County July 1-8. Of 264 teams competing, one includes his son, Bobby, Denne said. It’s a great honor for Knoxville to be chosen as the host city for the first time. Registrations will be at the Women’s Basketball Hall of Fame. Holiday Inn World’s Fair Park is one of the host hotels. Sales manager Brooke Cross expressed enthusiasm, saying rooms will be sold out. “We’re excited to have them. It’s going to be a huge group. We’re going to do some fun things and

have special menus. We are providing two shuttles which will transport the players and their parents within 3 square miles so they can enjoy Knoxville while here. “This is great for the tourism of Knoxville.” AYSO is a national volunteer-based organization that follows the same rules as World Cup and professional soccer. In AYSO, everyone gets to play. The goal is positive and developmental. “Because of the positive atmosphere, volunteer referees, even as young as 10 years old, can feel comfortable with a whistle in their hand during our matches,” said Bob Denne. Denne encourages youth to volunteer as soccer referees, stating these benefits: ■ Colleges, the National Honor Society and many other organizations’ appli-

Bob Denne and sons Trevin and Bobby Denne enjoy refereeing AYSO soccer games. Trevin wrestles for Karns High School, while Bobby plays soccer and enjoys theatre. He plays Will Parker in the upcoming “Oklahoma” musical. Bobby is also a volunteer coach with AYSO. There is a need for additional volunteer soccer referees, which can become paying positions.

cations ask what volunteer projects the applicant has been associated with; ■ It teaches young people organizational and management skills in a non-threatening, adult-supervised environment; ■ Refereeing helps other players enhance under-

standing of the game; ■ It is a great way to get additional exercise and fresh air; ■ It provides a learning environment allowing the referee to develop with the potential of advancing and eventually qualifying to get paid as a referee.

If you think you might enjoy being a referee, visit, complete a volunteer form, and take the simple, short online course. After completion, you will be invited to take a three-hour live course to receive AYSO referee certification. To find your local

AYSO region, visit www., enter your zip code and information about your region will be presented. There are several in the Knoxville area. You may also email Bob Denne for assistance at bdenne61@

Financial Focus Early Day lessons can apply to investors, too April 22 is Earth Day. Started in 1970 by Senator Gaylord Nelson, Earth Day is designed to create awareness of the Earth’s environment and to encourage conservation efforts. If you and your family participate in Earth Day events, such as helping clean up a local park or taking materials to a recyWendy cling center, you know the benefits of doing your part Schopp to improve your surroundings. But are you doing everything you can to upgrade your environment for investing? Actually, as an investor, you can learn a lot from the lessons of Earth Day. Here are just a few ideas: ■ Diversify. If you’re familiar with Earth Day, you know that it involves multiple activities, including educational programs and do-it-now action steps. This variety is necessary because protecting our environment is a complex challenge. Meeting your shortand long-term investment goals can be challenging, too, but you’ll have a better chance of success by diversifying your investment dollars across a range of vehicles, such as stocks, bonds, government securities and certificates of deposit (CDs). Diversification can help reduce the impact of volatility on your portfolio – and high volatility can be an obstacle for some people trying to follow an investment strategy. (Keep in mind, though, that diversification, by itself, cannot guarantee a profit or protect against loss.) ■ Seek growth opportunities. Some people plant trees on Earth Day, hoping to watch them grow over the years. As an investor, you, too, need to plant “seeds” today in the hopes of growth in the future. That means, among other things, that when you purchase growth-oriented investments for

the long term, you need to try to stick with them and not “uproot” them after shortterm declines in price. ■ Develop good habits. If you attend an Earth Day program, you will learn about many eco-friendly habits you can develop, from using energy-efficient light bulbs to recycling old computers and other electronic devices. To invest successfully, it’s important to develop good habits, such as staying invested in all types of markets, seeking tax-advantaged investments and reviewing your portfolio regularly to make sure it’s still appropriate for your risk tolerance, time horizon and long-term objectives. ■ Avoid “toxins.” At some Earth Day events, you can learn about “green” substitutes for toxic chemicals in common household cleaners. When you invest, you may also want to avoid “toxins” – or at least “toxic” behaviors, such as chasing after “hot” stocks that are inappropriate for your needs or trading so frequently that you run up big fees, commissions and taxes. ■ Think long term. Above all else, Earth Day is a reminder to us that we all want to leave a healthy planet to future generations – which means we need to make moves that are beneficial for the environment over the long term. When you invest, you also need to focus on the future. That means following a long-term investment strategy and not getting sidetracked by short-term events, such as political crises and economic downturns. Earth Day comes once a year, but its lessons can have a lasting impact on our environment. When you apply these same lessons to your own investment environment, you may be able to achieve some healthy results. For more information on investing, contact Wendy Schopp at Edward Jones Investments, 671-1318.

Coach Russell Stewart attended the signing. “We are really excited about having Emma in our 2012 class,� he said. “I’m sure she will be a great addition to our team. Congratulations on winning the scholarship.�

News from Turkey Creek Public Market Kerry Freeman displays his 1971 Ford Maverick. “I’ve restored a lot of it, replacing the motor, doing interior work, headliners and seats,” he said. “It’s not so much a show car as a car to drive. Everyone has a Maverick story, but there are not many left today.” He likes to go to the rod runs with his wife. “Mine’s a Saturday night cruiser.”

Kim Blair does the work herself on this 2003 Chevy Corvette. She does research online and laughed, “I’ll eventually figure it out. If I see something I want, I’ll try and do it. I’ll attempt anything once.” She installed a cold air intake (custom painted marble blue) which increases efficiency and speed. Inside the engine is engraved “It doesn’t get any better than this!” The same saying is embroidered on the custom blue trunk liner. She also added a custom Corsa Xtreme exhaust. To add sparkle, blue LED lights match her other blue accents contrasting with the black auto.

‘Celebration’ sculpture unveiled By Theresa Edwards The sculpture “Celebration,” created by artist Davis Whitfield IV and commissioned by Nick Cazana for the Holiday Inn World’s Fair Park, was unveiled April 10. The inspiration for installing this sculpture came from the Dogwood Arts Festival’s Art in Public Places Knoxville, a program founded in 2007 by Bart Watkins, CEO of LizBeth and Company, and Deputy Mayor Eddie Mannis, then CEO of Prestige Cleaners. “It is often said arts are the heart and soul of a community,” said Mayor Madeline Rogero prior to the unveiling. “It is good for us. It brings us together. It expands our horizons and makes a spirit in our community.” The new sculpture is 14 feet wide by 11 feet high, weighing approximately 800 pounds. It is constructed of powder coated mild and stainless steel. While assembling it, Whit-

field stood on a 9-foot ladder, looking down at it to get a perspective on how it would look. “The day I installed it last Wednesday was the first time I saw it on the wall,” he said. The sculpture consists of three pieces. The gold circle Whitfield calls the “sun piece” was the first piece installed. The second portion consisted of the parts resembling a head and small body in the front. The last piece was the “body” on the back side. There were men finishing tile work that helped lift the sculpture. It was so heavy it required five men using scissor-lift scaffolding to raise and bolt it to the wall. “It took a lot of maneuvering to get it there,” said Whitfield. The “Celebration” sculpture is not representational, Whitfield explained, but it is a joyous occasion. The abstract forms are happy, whimsical and lyrical. He leaves it to the viewers to interpret.

In their own words:

The importance of mammography t was Saturday. I was home alone and hanging out watching television when I noticed an uncomfortable sensation on the underside of my right breast. I felt the area and there, unmistakably, was a hard, heavy lump about the size of a small, elongated egg. My blood ran cold. I began obsessively examining it, trying to dismiss it into the group of normal experiences I’d had in the past with dense breasts. I tend not to do breast self-exams. I’m one of those people who have breasts that are thicker here and there, so I get worried. So, rather than worry, I don’t do exams. In that moment, that practice changed. It literally took my breath away, and all I could do was try to reassure myself with the recent ads I heard that say 95 percent of all breast cancers are curable if caught early. But I didn’t know if this was “early.” I was frightened to the core. My partner was out of town and by the time we talked by phone, I was a little more composed, but felt as though I was sharing news that just might change our future. a look I called a friend who is a nurse practitioner.

Only person in East Tennessee to hold this certification Donna Stephens, RN with the Parkwest Comprehensive Breast Center, received the Breast Patient Navigator Certification from the National Consortium of Breast Centers. She is one of only 10 nurses in Tennessee, and the only one in this area, who holds this distinction. The benefits of working with a certified breast patient navigator include: assurance that the provider of care is qualified and competent at a more than basic level; improved quality, safety and accuracy of care by advanced skilled professionals; expanded knowledge to be shared about choices and treatment options; more empowerment in decision-making; and knowledge that the professional has shown the desire to improve their quality of patient care and service delivery. The National Consortium of Breast Centers identifies the purpose of certification as a means to set standards of achievement and the professionals role; enhance patient safety, quality of care and delivery of services; and recognize professionals who advance beyond basic knowledge in a field of specialty.

Brenda McColl with her grandchildren


am 59, and two years ago I felt a lump in my right breast. It was sore, and I had always heard if you find a lump and it’s sore, it’s probably nothing serious. So, I assumed I must have a cyst or some thing very minor. Although I have an aunt and cousin who had breast cance r, I never thought that would happen to me. My annual exam and mammogram were due two months later, so I made my appointment with the Parkwest Comprehen sive Breast Center and waited and worr ied. I should have gone right away to have it checked, but kept telling myself it was nothing since it was sore – BIG mistake. For the first time, I was nervous about my mam mogram results, especially when I was called that afternoon and asked to return for an ultrasound the next day. When the doctor walked in and told me he wanted me to have a biopsy, I still felt every thing would be fine. After all, I was in great physical condition. Cancer couldn’t happen to me, or so I thought. I went a few days later to Dr. Amanda Squires for the biops y. She was very reassuring, and helped me relax and feel like every thing would be fine, no matter the outcome. A few days later, I received a phone call from my primary care doctor, Dr. Shaw n Collier. When he told me I had breas t cancer, I went into immediate shock. I couldn’t talk, move or even cry. I was just frozen. Honestly, I can’t even remember what was said. It was as if the information I was hearing was about someone else and not me. Of course like most people who hear they have cancer, I thought this was it and my life was over. My husband, Rick, could tell by my reaction the news wasn’t good and took the phone from me. He had to make calls to tell our family becau se I couldn’t. It’s hard to think of yourself as having cancer and in my mind, to say it, made it so. I saw Dr. Lytle Brow n at Parkwest a few days later and was told I had infiltrating ductal carcinoma. That meant nothi ng to me, and he started explaining our plan. At this point I think I was still in shock. Dr. Brow n gave me options and explained each in detail so I could make my decision as to the course we would take. He was wonderful , both to me as the patient and my family. It took me a few days to think about all of my options and make a decision as to which path I wanted to take. I decid ed to have radiation, then a lumpectomy followed by chemotherapy. I must say God blessed me with the best care I could have asked for. My oncologist , Dr. Mitchell Martin, was so patient in his explanation to us about my treat ment and what to expect. He and the staff at Parkwest made a terrible exper ience into something I didn’t dread. They were always willing to take the time to answer any questions I had and always seemed positive and upbe at, which made things easier for me. The same was true with my radiation onco logist, Dr. Joseph Meyer. He and his staff were wonderful about making me feel at ease with anything I was going through. Because of God, my family and friends, I was able to get through a tough season of my life and have returned to all normal activ ities and feel great! I see life a little differently now and realiz e just how precious each day is. That’s why I feel it is so important to have an annual mammogram and to do breast self-exams. Women need to be proac tive about their health, and mammograms are a must. Without mine, the cancer would have progressed unchecked and my outcome might not have been so positive. I thank God every day for the staff and facilities at Parkwest for helping me catch this early, putting me on the right course and treatment , and supporting me every step of the way. – Brenda McColl

Starr travel party at Strang Starr Lawson of All Starr Travel presented helpful travel information, tips and upcoming scheduled worldwide adventures at the Strang Senior Center. The scheduled adventures range from one-day trips to weeklong cruises. “You need to have something for everybody, with lots of variety” Lawson said. Some seniors do not like to travel overnight, so the oneday trips suit them well.

Others like to travel on longer adventures, but enjoy traveling with a group for added safety. There is safety in numbers. Soon they will be going to New York City. “Of course we stick together,” Lawson said. Plus they avoid standing in lines for their hotel reservation and such, with everything being planned out for them. “They can just show up and have fun,” she said. Group travel rates also are more economical. “It’s just better all the way around.” “Most of all, they like to get out, have fun and meet people,” Lawson explained,

adding that she always feeds them well. “We also go on all-girl trips which are a lot of fun.” Many of the seniors from the Strang Center go on these various trips. “One recent trip they really enjoyed was to Wohlfahrt Haus Dinner Theatre in Wytheville, Va.,” Lawson exclaimed. “We saw ‘Under the Boardwalk,’ and that was a lot of fun.” “Then we went on a mystery trip,” she said. “But on those, there are always some that will wonder where we are going and what we are going to do. So we don’t do very many mystery trips.” To find out about upcoming scheduled adventures through All Starr Travel, call 774-8781 or email

Shannondale singers, Civil War songs By Theresa Edwards The Shannondale Singers were guest performers at the James A. Dick Mighty Musical Monday program at the Tennessee Theatre, along with Confederate and Union re-enactors. Following the Star-Spangled Banner, house organist Dr. Bill Snyder played “Give My Regards to Broadway,” “It Might as Well Be Spring” and “Spring is Here.” Knoxville native David Keith, who has starred in more than 80 movies and 100 roles, was master of ceremonies for the event. He introduced the Shannondale Singers saying, “Don’t number the days of your life, but the life in your days. One way they keep life in their days is by singing, not just for themselves, but for others as well. We welcome these ambassadors of great spirit and good will to the Tennessee Theatre.” The Shannondale Singers began by performing a Stephen Foster medley of “Nelly Bly,” “Jeanie, with the Light Brown Hair,” “Camptown Races,” “My Old Kentucky Home,” “Beautiful Dreamer” by soloist Jill Hoyles and “Oh, Susanna.” Following was their chorale suite theme “The Blue and the Gray” along with

The speaking parts came from historic documents, according to director Martha Keith Farrelly, making the presentations authentic.

The good, the bad, the Internet By Ruth White Internet scammers beware! The senior adults in the Heiskell community recently hosted Tammy Rolen with Frontier Communications and they are now more knowledgeable about Internet safety. “Internet safety doesn’t just involve children,” said Rolen, “adults are at risk too.” Adults are a growing population of Internet users and although it can be a wonderful tool for research, keeping in touch and shopping, scammers are just waiting to steal information and identities from unsuspecting people. Three steps to defending yourself if your Internet safety has been compromised is to first protect your computer through security software, back up files regularly to disk or external hard drive and if attacked, seek professional help immediately. Always keep personal information secure, including Social Security number, credit card num-

Send announcements to

reports, shred mail and documents, monitor postal mail, protect your Social Security number, and beware of shoulder surfing. Social networks are great ways to stay connected with family and friends, but too much information posted on these sites might lead to unnecessary theft. “Never post that you are heading out on vacation for a period of time and never post personal information,” Rolen reminds the crowd. She also stated that it is best not to post information on the Internet that you wouldn’t want your neighbors, pastor or boss to read. “Once information is posted on the Internet, it’s out there for good.” If you are a victim of Internet fraud, Rolen advises that passwords to accounts should be changed, the credit card companies and bank should be notified, account numbers should be changed and that the incident should be reported quickly. “If it’s a deal that is too good to be true, it probably is.”

Dragon’s got a new home

Meet Giovanni The staff at Young-Williams would like you to meet 16-week-old Giovanni, a male hound mix puppy. This sweetie has a lot of growing and learning to do. Often hound owners think undesirable behavior like escaping and perceived stubbornness is the dog acting true to his breed. While a hound may wish to follow a scent, they can be trained to resist those urges and stay closer to home. Giovanni is available for adoption at the “new” center at YoungWilliams Animal Village, 6400 Kingston Pike. Hours there and at the facility on Division Street are noon to 6 p.m. daily. Info: visit www. or call 215-6599.
