HVA senior founds club to aid Uganda When Hardin Valley Academy senior Tera Jarrett moved to Knoxville from Maryland last year, she never imagined she would be starting and leading a club at her new school. “I am still in shock that I am actually starting a club,” she says. Jarrett’s Schools for Schools group will be part of a national organization to raise money to rebuild schools in northern Uganda.

PTSA, Lowe’s build outdoor classroom Before long, Karns High School students will be able to learn environmental science while sitting in a new outdoor classroom. It’s possible through the hard work of students, parents, staff and Lowe’s at Cedar Bluff.

Joe Rector

The area will have pathways leading to the classroom. There, a 10-by-10 podium and eight benches that can seat 32 students will be built. Steve James, a parent involved in the school’s PTSA, discovered the Lowe’s Toolbox for Education grant that the home supply store offers schools. He set out to complete forms and other information in hopes of securing money for the unconventional classroom. As he worked, James learned about an additional grant offered by local stores. The Hometown Heroes Grant is given annually. With both, the PTSA had $5,300 to purchase items to complete their projects. Lowe’s manager Teresa Beavers was on site early Sept. 10 to make sure supplies were delivered. “The Hometown Heroes grant is something the store has offered for several years,” she said. “We always enjoy the opportunity to work with the community and schools. Our people are eager to help as well.”

Parent Rhonda Clark nails frames together.

Steve James and Doug Lakin discuss the layout of the outdoor classroom. The help from the national chain didn’t stop there. For the project, 26 Lowe’s employees signed up to help in the construction. They brought with them new tools for all workers to use. The outdoor classroom was a surprise to environmental science teacher Doug Lakin. He began planting trees in the area 12 years ago as a way to honor his late son Keaton. “The work kept me from going crazy then, and now it’s something I want to maintain for the students.” At one time Lakin built a fence that he funded by selling rails on which names were carved as honorariums and memorials. It was dismantled, much to the dismay of students and staff.

New identification signs for trees now are in place and they bear the names from the rails. Within the next few weeks, the area will be certified as a state arboretum, and Lakin is proud that the work he and others have put in will be rewarded with the title. The outdoor classroom offers students in science classes and in other curricular disciplines the chance to experience learning in a place different from the traditional classroom setting. James, who is a professor at Maryville College, can appreciate the value of using a variety of settings in teaching. He’s excited for the students and hopes the facilities will be used often.

Folks at Karns High can’t wait to use the outdoor classroom. It’s just one more tool the staff can use to offer the

best possible education for students. Drop by some time and take a tour through the arboretum, and make sure

to give a big thanks to the Cedar Bluff Lowe’s store for their help and the PTSA for its work.

Sizzle or fizzle Candidates make final pitches

Fun and funds from films With tax revenue flat-lining, governments need new sources of funds. There are 8 million stories in the Naked County aching for a shot at the big screen.

‘Dirty Timmy’

Acclaimed director Dean Rice brings you a story for the ages, the tale of the man who wouldn’t say quit. They called him – “Dirty Timmy.” School board member: You got nothing, Dirty Timmy. Just try bringing that Carter Elementary project back here for a vote. Dirty Timmy: I know what you’re thinking, punk. Does he have five votes or only four? Tell you the truth, I forgot myself in all this excitement. So you have to ask yourself: Do I feel lucky? Well, do you, punk? Dirty Timmy, the man who stood tall even when his best developer deserted him. Devon: I’m pulling out, Timmy. We’re getting too much heat, and Commissioner Broyles is just too powerful to go up against. Dirty Timmy: You disappoint me, but I’ll find some new Partners. The “don’t miss” film of the year, the startling conclusion of “Dirty Timmy” will stay with you forever! Coming in October, November, December or whenever.

‘Beck: I told you so’

This provocative documentary from director Sam McKenzie captures the Beck Cultural Exchange Center’s struggle to clear its name and keep its doors open after its funding was slashed and County Commission ordered an audit of the center’s books. “The auditor ‘went the extra mile’ and didn’t find anything,” McKenzie said. “I’d been saying all along the audit would come out clean.” But the film reveals that the battle may not be over. “Beck got a good report, but the critics may not be satisfied,” said McKenzie. “I’m guessing they’ll say the auditor was incompetent or the audit didn’t go far enough.” McKenzie’s incisive analysis introduces what he calls “the Obama factor” in local politics. “Although their logic escapes me, some will blame Obama. Not enough rain? Too much rain? It’s Obama’s fault. That’s just how things are around here.” McKenzie plans to release “Beck: I told you so” in late September.

The Rogero Armada gathered at Gov. Ned McWherter Park to set sail for Sequoyah Park and the symbolism was palatable. Madeline Rogero climbed on a rock to address her followers: “We’re going right through the middle of downtown, along the South Knox waterfront. Let’s enjoy each other and focus on quality growth and our natural assets,” she said. It was a perfect Sunday afternoon. The paddlers wore maroon and white T-shirts. Most tacked campaign signs on their watercraft. A couple even brought two black Labs, suitably attired in life jackets. “Watch out for each other,” someone yelled as they set out. “Don’t drink the water!” yelled another. Team Rogero may look back on this event and wish they had gone door-to-door instead. But for one day the political outliers from eight years ago looked ready to take control of their city government. What was their reception in Sequoy-

Sandra Clark ah Park? Madeline said fresh made Cruze Farm ice cream awaited. It’s doubtful the Sequoyah residents stood with pitchforks to repel the invaders. Rogero has been around long enough to feel familiar. She’s worked for Bill Haslam, Dolly Parton and Colin Powell. The sun is shining on her campaign for mayor. There’s not a cloud in sight. Mark Padgett looks like a mayor (or Robert Redford playing “The Candidate”). At age 33, he’s raised the most money and produced the slickest advertising. His family (wife, kid and dog) beams from giant billboards. And no candidate has worked harder. So why is Mark not catching on? Politicians say he’s not paid his dues. He lacks loyalty among hardcore

voter turnout on Nov. 8 will increase by another 20 percent. Should the race be decided on Sept. 27, then the winner has a long transition which is helpful. Who will a new mayor hire? My estimate is that Rogero offers the least change in personnel as she worked closely as a former city director with almost everyone there now. Larry Martin and Bill Lyons are each $1,000 donors to her campaign. They would likely stay if she wins and depart should one of the other candidates prevail. Ivan Harmon would probably pick Rick Emmett as his chief of staff. This should

be reassuring to those who question Harmon’s executive skills as Emmett is a low key, steady and even cautious longtime city employee. He currently oversees many downtown projects. Who Padgett picks is anyone’s guess, but it’s safe to say he would bring in the most personnel changes. His father, Mike Padgett, would have influence. It is unlikely that any of the mayoral candidates would change either the current fire or police chiefs. Stan Sharp and David Rausch are widely applauded as able and solid. Notes: A recent mailer urging support for four candidates has each denying involvement. The four candidates are Becky Massey for senator, Padgett for mayor, and George Wallace and Marshall Stair for council. Obviously, someone spent money and effort to create

the mailer and violated state law by not showing who is paying for it. On the other hand, each of the four named candidates had their picture mailed without cost to them to hundreds if not thousands of voters. ■ Interim council member Charlie Thomas baffled many when he withdrew as a write-in candidate after signing up just a few weeks earlier. This assures Mark Campen’s election as one of the four new council members. The brief on and off campaign of Thomas did cause Campen to campaign more actively than he had previously done. Campen has a strong environmental bent and favors parks and greenways. He is informed on issues but will be reserved when he speaks out. He brings integrity and knowledge to his new position.

New hires for new mayor

Early voting has been weak. Based on voting to date, the city total on Sept. 27 may be close to 18,000 – which is less than 20 percent of eligible voters. This is unfortunate, as 2011 marks the first time in 24 years that someone other than Ashe or Haslam (and Dan Brown for 11 months) will be mayor of Get ready for the horror ride of your life.

Democrats (they’re for Madeline) and Republicans (most are for Ivan Harmon). Padgett has support from the business community, but not the business establishment. For credibility, he needed endorsements. But Madeline scored with the News Sentinel, Metro Pulse and the Public Trust PAC. Mark failed to sell the Haslam establishment. Maybe he should have nailed up some yard signs for Bill in that 2010 gubernatorial race. City employees want to back the winner. That’s why many voted against their self-interest in supporting Haslam in 2003. They don’t need to do that this time. And don’t discount the support Ivan Harmon has among city employees. Padgett is third among this group of motivated, surebet voters. But Padgett doesn’t need to beat Rogero on Sept. 27. He just needs to beat Harmon and prevent Rogero from winning outright with 50 percent plus one. Will Mark sizzle or fizzle? We’ll know in a week and a day.

Brown hopes successor keeps police chief The biggest decision Daniel Brown has had to make since he was sworn in as Knoxville’s mayor last January came just a few weeks later when Police Chief Sterling Owen resigned.

of his hometown, but that’s where he finds himself since his City Council colleagues elected him interim mayor after Bill Haslam got elected governor. “Growing up, I never thought about being mayor. But things happen and you never know what is in your future,” he said. “When the dust settled, I was left standing.” Recently married to his longtime sweetheart, Cathy Ann Smith, Brown says he’s searched the historical record and has not found another mayor who got married while in office. Otherwise, he says he has very purposefully tried to keep from making any major changes. “I have not had to lay off anybody or raise taxes, while we have continued to provide all the basic services,” he said, adding that he didn’t think it would have been appropriate to replace any department heads.

“I believe it’s good to keep things on a sound footing and not to have any major upheaval.” He’s proud of the way that city employees have responded to the weather emergencies created by this year’s series of damaging storms, and he’s enthusiastic about the new curbside recycling program that begins in October. He’s also a big booster of the redevelopment dis-

tricts that have been created on Cumberland and Magnolia Avenues, North Central Avenue and the South Knox Waterfront. “For the last three years, the city has been offering the same level of services with static or shrinking budgets. Thanks to responsible budgeting and cooperation between the administration and city council, city government has been able to avoid

cutting back on services. I am confident we will be OK.” Brown ended his talk with a plea for civility. “One of biggest challenges before us is to have respect for civility and open dialogue. Those of us in public office have the job of resolving many of these issues, and that job can be made a lot more difficult by the tone of the dialogue during the debate.”

PULL UP A CHAIR … | Jake Mabe

‘Find out next week …’ Film buff looks back at classic movie serials


ou could get in for anywhere from 9 to 15 cents. You often were treated to a double feature, usually a B-western, sometimes a two-reel short like the “Three Stooges,” and, often, a cliffhanger serial. Don Calhoun spent many a Saturday during his childhood at one of five theaters that were then located in downtown Kingsport, where he grew up, usually in the three that catered to the films he liked. One of them, the Center, would show a kiddie program, usually with a serial, a cartoon and a B-western, and even give you a piece of cake if it was your birthday, all for 15 cents. The bus station was located next to the theater, so Don and his brother would usually hitch a ride on the bus into town on Saturday mornings from their home out in the country. Often, they’d get a Krystal or Blue Circle hamburger for a dime and maybe buy a Sporting News. “We were poor as church mice, but my brother and I usually had something going. We trapped, sold ginseng, dried out herbs. Our dad would rent us a small tobacco plot, so we’d have a little more money to spend.” Sometimes Don and his brother would go to the Gem, which would often show two B-westerns, usually from the late 1930s to 1950s, as well as a two-reel comedy. Admission was 9 cents. Other times they might run over to the Realto. “The Realto was my favorite. They’d show a serial chapter, a Bwestern, like a Rocky Lane or a Monte Hale, and sometimes even a third booking like “1,001 Thrills,” a Sherlock Holmes or a Boston Blackie or the color Ali Babas.”

Don Calhoun shows a close up of the Better Little Book (formerly known as the Big Little Books) of the classic Republic serial “Dick Tracy Returns.” Calhoun kept his love for these classic films, particularly B-westerns and movie serials, and began collecting both memorabilia and films as an adult. He can remember being overjoyed when author Alan G. Barbour came out with two books on the genres in the early 1970s, “The Thrill of it All” and “Days of Thrill and Adventure,” well before the days of home video. Since the 1980s, Calhoun has served, on and off, as a producer and co-host of Marshal Andy’s popular “Riders of the Silver Screen,” which airs classic B-westerns and movie serials. The program began on the old WKCH Channel 43 and now airs on local PBS affiliate WKOP (Channel 15) at 10:30 a.m. Saturdays. Calhoun will offer tidbits about the serials and movies and often display a lobby card or a poster or a comic book, something tied to the film and/or the serial. When we sat down to talk about movie serials recently, Calhoun wanted to make one thing clear up front. “I’m not an expert on serials. I just really enjoy them.” But, he

Don Calhoun shows off some of his movie serials memorabilia at his home. Calhoun provides trivia and other tidbits for the B-westerns and classic serials shown on Marshal Andy’s “Riders of the Silver Screen” at 10:30 a.m. Saturdays on WKOP-TV (PBS) in Knoxville. Photos by Jake Mabe knows more about them than anybody you’re likely to meet. Calhoun says that movie serials began in 1913, the year after the first full-length motion pictures were produced. The early serials often featured women in peril. One of the first was called “The Perils of Pauline.” The “catch” of the serials is the (sometimes literal) cliffhanger in which the hero is left in some precarious situation and the audience would have to come back to the theater the following week to discover the character’s fate. The early serials ran anywhere from 10 to 20 chapters (Calhoun says one ran 119 episodes!), but later, when serials reached their peak in the late 1930s and early 1940s, 15 chapters

were the norm, with the first chapter usually being the longest. As the serials hit their stride, they would feature everything from westerns like “Zorro” and “The Adventures of Jesse James” to comic book heroes like Superman and Captain Marvel to detective and adventure stories like Dick Tracy and the Canadian Mounties. The “Dick Tracy” serials starring Ralph Byrd are some of the most

popular ever produced. Calhoun says a majority of serial buffs consider “Dick Tracy vs. Crime Inc.” to be the best of the series, although he prefers “Dick Tracy Returns.” Virtually all film historians agree that Republic Pictures produced the best serials. “Why are Republic serials better?” Calhoun asks. “It’s not the stars. They had good scripts, yes, but it’s the production itself. They’d do miniatures (small model sets) up on a hill or by the water with a real sky behind them. They had the best stuntmen in the business and the cinematography was excellent.” “Riders of the Silver Screen” is currently airing an enjoyable serial, “S.O.S. Coast Guard,” starring Ralph “Dick Tracy” Byrd and Bela Lugosi. After it wraps, Calhoun says the plan is to begin showing serials produced after 1944, which were shortened in length due to rising production costs. Doing so, he says, will give Calhoun and Marshal Andy Smalls more time to chat about the films, air a B-western following the serial and also allow time at the end for Andy’s musical segments. One thing about it, though. Calhoun says you have you put yourself in a certain frame of mind to really appreciate the classic serials of yesteryear. “They were made for kids. They weren’t made for adults. Watch them from the standpoint that you’re in that era. People weren’t jaded; it was a good versus evil theme, kind of like watching B-westerns. Don’t expect the technology of today.” But expect to be entertained, perhaps even expect to be returned to those Saturday silver screens of yesterday, if you lived through it. Before long, you’ll get sucked in, waiting in anticipation to find out what happens next week, just as it was meant to be. Jake Mabe is a movie nut born about 40 years too late.

When You Grow We Grow



Trees I have known Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it. Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord. ‌ (Psalm 96: 11-13a NRSV) I claim several trees that don’t actually belong to me. Not, as I think about it, that any tree really belongs to me. I somehow think that trees are a little like people; they belong to themselves. However, there are trees, and then there are my trees. Some trees are very special to me, for various reasons, and regardless of whose property they are on, I think of them as mine. The house where I grew up has always been surrounded by enormous oaks, but there was a maple tree in the front yard that was the first of “myâ€? trees. My tree had a lowslung, sturdy branch, just the right height for climbing, and just the right size for sitting on. It also had another branch: a smaller branch that grew right above the big one, and which functioned much like the safety bar on a roller coaster. My tree stood near the front corner of the property, and so was private, not readily visible to my family inside the house. That tree became my private retreat. I read most of “Little Womenâ€? there, as well as many other books. I

climbed there, and thought, and prayed, and cried, and pretended, and dreamed and wondered. I was saddened not too long ago to drive by that house and see that “my� tree had been cut down. It appeared to have been damaged, maybe in one of the windstorms of the spring, and, when I saw it, it was lying on the ground, in great chunks. The next time I passed the house, it was gone altogether. But there are other trees that I have never climbed, never touched. They are also “my� trees. I love them like old friends because of their grace, beauty and steadfast presence. One is a tree on the road I drive to work every day. I am not sure what kind it is because in the summer it is quite unremarkable, and I don’t notice it at all, so I

haven’t analyzed its leaves. But in the winter, during a snowfall, its leaning trunk catches and holds the snow on its north side. The trunk is crooked, and the snow, following the line of the tree, looks like a lightning bolt, zigzagging from sky to earth. There is another tree that I love in all seasons. It is an enormous sycamore that stands in a small vale about a block off my route. I have to look carefully, and am glad when the traffic light turns red and stops my progress there, allowing me to savor the tree’s angular, spreading branches. Its white bark gleams in all seasons: stark as bones in the winter, shining like a candle in the spring, showing like a glimpse of lace when the tree is in full summer leaf and shimmering softly through the wide yellow leaves in the fall. I give thanks for my friends, “my� trees. I remember, I remember, The fir trees dark and high; I used to think their slender tops Were close against the sky: It was a childish ignorance, But now ’tis little joy To know I’m farther off from heaven Than when I was a boy. (“I Remember, I Remember,� Thomas Hood)

International Gold, Silver and Diamond Buyers paying on the spot for valuables this week in Alcoa and Knoxville

Alcoa and Knoxville-area residents are in for a rare treat when the International Gold, Silver and Diamond Buyers (IGSDB) host an event here, from September 20th - 24th. The company has identified this region as prime territory for purchasing your

precious metals—especially gold and silver. The IGSDB estimates that local residents have millions of dollars worth of valuables that they no longer need or want. That is where the IGSDB comes in—they specialize in buying those items from local sellers in the U.S., Canada and Europe. Items like gold coins, scrap gold, sterling silver

diamonds, coins are a big hit. Offers will be made on all coins dated 1970 and earlier—gold coins, silver, silver dollars, half dollars, quarters, nickels and dimes. Enright explains, “U.S. coins made before 1965 are worth more than their legal tender amount because they contain 90% silver. Rare dates and mint marks can make them even more valuable. We recently paid

Providing an economic boost to each region it visits, the IGSDB projects to pay out $350,000 at each event—a testament to the high volume of items they purchase and the prime prices being paid. Offers are made based on rarity, numismatic value, condition and market value. Company spokesman Matthew Enright says, “We just paid $4,700 for a loose 1.25—carat diamond. Our mission is to pay local residents on the spot for sterling silverware, fine jewelry, coins and precious metals—especially silver and gold.” The company has seen a huge influx of gold lately. “Customers have been scrambling to cash into the record-high value of gold,” adds Enright. For those who are unsure if their items are genuine gold or silver, or simply costume, company will test it for free. “The best strategy is to bring all items to the show for a free evaluation from our specialists. It always amazes me how a small handful of gold and silver can turn into hundreds of dollars in just a few moments. We test, weigh, and buy items right on the spot,” Enright says. At a recent show, a small—town dentist had a nice pay day. “I have been collecting dental gold for years from patients who didn’t want their extracted teeth. It really added up—my check is for over $31,000!”

Senior initiates Schools for Schools Hardin Valley Academy senior Tera Jarrett led the first informational meeting of the Schools for Schools club at HVA last week. In partnership with the Invisible Children organization, the club will sponsor fundraisers to rebuild schools in Uganda. Photo by N.

Hardin Valley Academy club to fundraise for Uganda schools By Natalie Lester When Hardin Valley Academy senior Tera Jarrett moved to Knoxville from Maryland last year, she never imagined she would be starting and leading a club at her new school. “I am still in shock that I am actually starting a club,” she said. “I’ve never led a group like this, and it is a lot of responsibility, but I have a lot of passion for it that will keep me going.” Jarrett’s Schools for Schools group will be part of a national organization to raise money to rebuild schools in northern Uganda. Over the last 20 years, a civil war in Uganda between the government and the Lord’s Resistance Army has torn communities apart. As support for the LRA decreased, leaders began kid-

napping children and forcing them to fight. According to the Invisible Children website, it is estimated that more than 90 percent of the LRA’s troops were taken and trained as children. As a result, the government has relocated the majority of the area’s population into overcrowded camps to protect them. However, that has not worked and children often stay awake to move from place to place throughout the night to avoid being captured. Schools for Schools promotes a national fundraising competition between the individual clubs to raise money to rebuild schools in the original Ugandan communities. Once the schools are built, the community infrastructure returns and

Not your parents’ lunch School lunch menu is tastier, healthier By Wendy Smith If you think Knox County school cafeterias serve the same fare as 30 years ago, think again. “I tell parents, this is not the same school lunch we ate,” says Jon Dickl, director of school nutrition. “It’s not the same as even three years ago.” Since Dickl began working with the county in August of 2010, there have been major changes to the menu as well as the way several schools prepare their food. Some adjustments were driven by federal mandates, but others were Dickl’s ideas. “My perspective has changed. Eight or nine years ago, I’d have said, ‘I’ll change when you make me change.’ Today, I’d rather be one of the innovators,” he says. Dickl toured 84 school

cafeterias in Knox County to get an overview of menus, presentation, equipment and personnel. While the schools were serving healthy meals that met current criteria, he felt too many canned goods were being served. He also wanted to make sure menus reflected the county’s diverse population. Some canned food was replaced when the county began a farm-to-school program in the spring. Fresh strawberries, purchased from local farms, made their way to students’ plates shortly after being harvested. Schools are serving local raspberries and blackberries this year, and Dickl plans to offer local orange cauliflower, aka “Voliflower,” on Fridays in conjunction with UT games. He has also received grants that allow 12 elementary schools that serve atrisk students to provide a daily snack of fresh fruits and veggies. While the school lunch program spent $600,000

on produce last year, $1.2 million will go toward fruit and vegetables this year, Dickl says. Creative thinking has enabled him to serve more ethnic food. The county receives USDA commodity dollars based on the number of meals served, and those funds have typically been spent on canned and prepared foods. But Dickl is using the allotment to purchase raw meat, then having it processed to be used in healthy entrees like chicken teriyaki and carne guisada. The result is low-fat, restaurant-quality food with fewer additives. As of the beginning of this school year, several cafeterias have been converted from satellite sites, which serve food prepared at another school, to independent sites. West Hills Elementary is one of seven schools that had upgrades to its kitchen this summer. It is now less reliant on Bearden High School, which previously prepared its entrees and sent

Photo by Wendy Smith them over in trucks. It’s a good feeling for the cafeteria to operate independently, says West Hills principal Suzanne Oliver. “It feels like things are fresher, and we don’t run out of food. We know that we have exactly what we need for our children.” Pleasing parents and kids and meeting govern-

ment standards is a fine line to walk. Some students lament the loss of French fries, which are now available only on Fridays or not at all, depending on the school. But they probably don’t notice that food is flavored with Butter Buds rather than butter or that their milk no longer contains high fructose corn syrup.

Dickl narrowly avoided a rebellion when he tried to take biscuits and gravy off the breakfast menu. “I thought the high school students were going to storm the Andrew Johnson building with axes and pitchforks!” Fortunately, he found a happy medium with fat-free country gravy.

Financial Focus Women business owners need retirement plans If you’re a woman who owns a business, you’ve got plenty of company. In fact, women own more than 10 million U.S. companies, and women-owned businesses account for about 40% of all privately held firms in the U.S., according to the Center for Women’s Business Research. Clearly, the Wendy good neaws is that women like you are entering the Schopp small-business arena at a rapid pace. The not-so-good news is that you may be facing a retirement savings gap in comparison to male business owners. To get a sense of this gap, consider these statistics: According to the U.S. Small Business Administration’s Office of Advocacy, 19.4% of male business owners have 401(k) or similar plans, compared with just 15.5% of women owners. The percentage of female business owners with Individual Retirement Accounts (IRAs) is about the same as that of male business owners – but the men have more money in their accounts. The average woman’s IRA balance is about $51,000, compared with $91,000 for men, according to a recent report by the Employee Benefit Research Institute. Although these figures change constantly with the ebbs and flow of the market, the difference between the genders remains significant. One way to help close this savings gap, of course, is to set up a retirement plan for your business. But for many women business owners (and male owners, too), the perceived cost of setting up and running a retirement plan has been an obstacle. However, the retirement plan market has opened up considerably for small business owners over the past several years, so you might be surprised at the ease and inexpensiveness of administering a qual-

ity plan that can help you build resources for your own retirement — and help you attract and retain good employees. With the help of a financial professional, you can consider some of the myriad of plans that may be available to you: ■ Owner-only 401(k) – This plan, which is also known as an individual 401(k), is available to self-employed individuals and business owners with no fulltime employees other than themselves or a spouse. You may even be able to choose a Roth option for your 401(k), which allows you to make after-tax contributions that can grow tax-free. ■ SEP IRA – If you have just a few employees or are self-employed with no employees, you may want to consider a SEP IRA. You’ll fund the plan with taxdeductible contributions, and you must cover all eligible employees. ■ Solo defined benefit plan – Pension plans, also known as defined benefit plans, are still around – and you can set one up for yourself if you are self-employed or own your own business. This plan has high contribution limits, which are determined by an actuarial calculation, and as is the case with other retirement plans, your contributions are typically tax-deductible. ■ SIMPLE IRA – A SIMPLE IRA, as its name suggests, is easy to set up and maintain, and it can be a good plan if your business has fewer than 10 employees. Still, while a SIMPLE IRA may be advantageous for your employees, it’s less generous to you, as far as allowable contributions, than an owner-only 401(k), a SEP IRA or a defined benefit plan. As a business owner, you spend a lot of time thinking about what needs to be done today, but you don’t want to forget about tomorrow – so consider putting a retirement plan to work for you soon.

Mechanicsville Homecoming is strong tradition Each summer, many communities hold homecoming events. Mechanicsville held its sixth annual homecoming celebration on Saturday, Aug. Alvin 27. This one is very Nance special to me because Executive Director it was birthed by the and CEO, Knoxville’s HOPE VI project in Community Development Mechanicsville. Corporation Pastor Diane Evans of Holy Jerusalem Church of God says that homecoming is a way for the Mechanicsville community to celebrate through worship and praise the fact that the community is still going strong. It was very reaffirming for me to hear her say: “We’re proud of our revitalized neighborhood with new businesses and new homes. We’re a new neighborhood with a new sense of pride, and we appreciate what HOPE VI and KCDC have done for us.” Evans, who co-chaired the event with Charles Wright, president of the Mechanicsville Association, said they worked hard to make sure this year’s event was a celebration to remember. The Homecoming program included a look at the history of Mechanicsville, recognition of local dignitaries, and an awards ceremony to honor individuals who have done things to positively impact the community. Honorees were the Rev. Jerry Upton of Honey Rock Church; Andrew Jackson of Eternal Life Harvest; Brenda Reliford, former principal of Maynard Elementary; and Mechanicsville residents Annie Dorsett and Bentley Marlow. There also was a cookout contest, and KCDC helped select the winner. It was a tough job, but somebody had to do it! A Gospel Music Celebration included featured artist Stan Williams from Honey Rock Church, musical performances and dances by artists from the Mechanicsville neighborhood, Mattie Rice and choirs from Eternal Life Harvest and Children of God Church. Other event highlights included children’s activities, door prizes, special vendors, an education information booth and a clothing giveaway booth. My hat is off to the many people and organizations which invested time and energy to make sure this year’s homecoming was another success.

Where to start when your hearing fades By Sandra Clark Some of us hear fine; others don’t quite understand the sounds we’re hearing; still others keep turning up the television and saying, “Huh?” Gary and Belinda Weaver of Weaver Hearing Aid Center noticed something interesting during recent “roundabout” tours by neighborhood groups in the Franklin Square shopping center. “Most people just don’t know where to start (when faced with hearing loss),” said Gary. “I told them: find somebody you trust, somebody you know. Find a professional who is knowledgeable

about what they do.” Gary and Belinda work with individuals having hearing issues in a positive and encouraging way. They believe if the proper testing is done and the appropriate solution is applied, good results will follow. “We’re a personal service organization,” said Gary. “We will be upfront and explain what to expect from our testing.” Gary is a licensed hearing instrument specialist; Belinda is a nurse. “As lifelong Knoxvillians, we know the people who live here and we organize our services to help them.

Each new patient interview is conducted without charge. It includes a personal lifestyle component to enable Gary to learn the specific needs of each person. “Every patient is different and is treated as an individual, receiving the time and attention necessary to achieve positive results,” he said. If Gary suspects a medical condition, he will refer to an ear, nose and throat specialist. He wants to provide hearing instruments to healthy

WEST SIDE SHOPPER-NEWS â&#x20AC;˘ SEPTEMBER 19, 2011 â&#x20AC;˘ A-15


New cafeteria underway T

he Christian Academy of Knoxville broke ground Sept. 2 for a new cafeteria building to be constructed between the elementary and middle school buildings. The schoolâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s board of directors has explored the possibility of building a new cafeteria and bringing a food services program to the campus. In April, they voted unanimously to make the cafeteria a reality. CAK families and donors have also demonstrated a commitment to the project. The elementary school Health Council organized a two-week campaign last spring and raised $83,362 toward the cost of the new cafeteria. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The health council sees this building as instrumental in the evolution and progress of the school,â&#x20AC;? said Elementary Health Council member Kelly Mann. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After so much time and effort and energy went into the fundraising campaign, weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re really excited to see the ground-breaking. I look forward to seeing the progress of the building.â&#x20AC;? Nelson Westover, CAKâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building and grounds manager, has worked with George W. Reagan Construction, Flik Dining and Strategic Equipment and Supply Corporation to bring the plan to life. More details about the construction schedule and the implementation of the food services program will be announced soon. Renovation of the high school cafeteria will be included in the project. â&#x20AC;&#x153;On behalf of the board of directors, let me express just how thankful and excited we are to see the construction begin on our new cafeteria,â&#x20AC;? said board president Kevin Cross. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We have prayed for this building for years. Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s timing is perfect, and he has now blessed us with this opportunity to build this cafeteria and to provide healthy lunch choices for our students. Through the generous donations of his faithful servants this is becoming a reality.â&#x20AC;?

Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Parkwest Cardiac Rehab to the rescue after virus damages manâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s heart In the fall of 2010, Ross Gubiotti, a senior projects manager at Scripps Network, knew something was not right with his health, but he didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know just how signiďŹ cant his symptoms were. He had been â&#x20AC;&#x153;sort ofâ&#x20AC;? noticing shortness of breath after very little exertion, but on the morning that he was unable to walk a few hundred feet from the Scrippsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; parking lot into the building without stopping multiple times to rest, he acknowledged it was time to consult a doctor. Gubiotti, 62, went to a cardiologist on the Tuesday before Christmas and was admitted for a three-day hospital stay at Parkwest Medical Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were surprised that he was so very sick,â&#x20AC;? said Gubiottiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s wife, Melinda. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were expecting to entertain a crowd of visitors at the holidays, and that obviously wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t meant to be. So we called up friends and neighbors and divided the food among them.â&#x20AC;? Christmas plans werenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t the only things that changed. Following an echocardiogram, Gubiotti was diagnosed with idiopathic dilated cardiomyopathy, with an ejection fraction (EF) of 15 percent. (Any number below 35 percent is considered low.) EF is the percentage of blood that is pumped out of the heart during each beat. It is also a measurement used by doctors to see how well your heart is functioning. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It turns out that I had congestive heart failure which was caused by a virus,â&#x20AC;? Gubiotti explained. â&#x20AC;&#x153;One of 26 viruses could have caused this. Whichever one it was, was the kind of virus that affects the cardiac muscle and weakens heart function.â&#x20AC;? Congestive heart failure means your heart canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t pump enough blood to meet your bodyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s needs.

To help recuperate from a heart problem, Ross Gubiotti engaged in a threeday-per week workout regimen at Parkwest Cardio Pulmonary Rehabilitation Center which included an hour-long session featuring time on the recumbent bicycle as well as the treadmill, ergo meter, steps, and free weights.

Celebrating the completion of cardiac rehabilitation are: certified nurse case manager Amy Dale RN, exercise physiologist Jon Dalton, Ross Gubiotti and Melinda Gubiotti. Mr. Gubiotti said that the regular exercise has helped tremendously in his overall feeling of well-being.

Additionally, the amount of ďŹ&#x201A;uid which Gubiotti was retaining was amazing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I walked into the hospital weighting 245 pounds, and 72 hours later, I was 25 pounds lighter,â&#x20AC;? he said. A cardiac catheterization showed no evidence of high grade blockages and no valve disease. â&#x20AC;&#x153;A low EF can occur if your heart muscle has been damaged as a result of many things such as heart attack, long-term uncontrolled blood pressure, heart valve problems and heart failure,â&#x20AC;? said Amy Dale RN, a certiďŹ ed nurse case manager (CCM) who worked with Gubiotti at Parkwest Cardio Pulmonary Rehabilitation Center. â&#x20AC;&#x153;When you have a low EF, you are at a higher risk of having sudden cardiac arrest, which means that your heart has stopped beating and pumping blood. This can occur

bilitation was improving strength and endurance, or his metabolic (Met) level. The Met level is a measurement of workload â&#x20AC;&#x201C; how much energy it takes to do an activity. â&#x20AC;&#x153;During Mr. Gubiottiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s ďŹ rst day at Cardiac Rehab, he walked on the treadmill for three minutes at a speed of 2.0 mph,â&#x20AC;? Dale said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;At his 32nd visit, he walked on the treadmill for 10 minutes at a speed of 3.0 and elevation of 4.0, which equals a Met level of 4.95.â&#x20AC;? The kind of heart ailment from which Gubiotti suffers is one that he will likely never live without, but instead learn to live with by incorporating a healthier diet and lifestyle. Melinda Gubiotti said that the biggest change for her husband is adhering to a very low sodium diet. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve had to learn to cook all over again without salt,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve become extremely conscientious about reading labels. However, we

with no warning and there are no symptoms,â&#x20AC;? Dale said. The good news is that EF can improve. Gubiotti was treated with a medication called Coreg to improve the strength of the heart muscle and another medication called Lisinopril to lower the blood pressure and increase the circulation throughout his body, especially his heart. Gubiotti was also prescribed a â&#x20AC;&#x153;life vestâ&#x20AC;? to wear under his clothing. The vest is more technology than clothing; it monitors an electrocardiogram, and if the heart goes into a rhythm where it is no longer pumping, then a device on the vest delivers a shock which will reprogram the electrical current of the heart. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I wore it 24/7 for several months until I no longer needed it,â&#x20AC;? Gubiotti said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I no longer needed it when my EF reached the upper 30s.â&#x20AC;? Part of Gubiottiâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s cardiac reha-

donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give up ďŹ&#x201A;avor, we have just learned to season foods differently.â&#x20AC;? Gubiotti pointed out that as a New York City native, he continues to long for â&#x20AC;&#x153;realâ&#x20AC;? pizza. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I can still have it, just not as much and not as often,â&#x20AC;? he commented. Another thing Ross Guibiotti misses is travel to his favorite beach in Aruba, where he and Melinda honeymooned and have returned each year since 1993. Making the trek to that Caribbean locale tops his â&#x20AC;&#x153;to-doâ&#x20AC;? list as soon as he receives clearance from his physician. The Gubiottis will be present at the American Heart Associationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Heart Walk on Sept. 25. Melinda has been instrumental in organizing a team named â&#x20AC;&#x153;Freedom Walkers,â&#x20AC;? and because of Rossâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s recovery, she will be cheering more loudly than anyone.

Parkwest is walking in the AHA Heart Walk â&#x20AC;&#x201C; You can too! Did you know that cardiovascular disease (CVD) is the No. 1 killer of all Americans? Someone dies from CVD every 38 seconds. Heart disease kills more women than all forms of cancer combined, and congenital cardiovascular defects are the most common cause of infant death from birth defects. By participating in Heart Walk, Parkwest employees are joining more than a million people in 300+ cities across America in taking a stand against heart disease.
