Smits downplayed the robbery (a suspect was later taken into custody) and said Walgreens offers “a neighborhood pharmacist and the most accessible health care.” The Walgreens clinic on Middlebrook Pike offers school physicals, travel vaccines and more. Flu shots are available at all Walgreens any time a pharmacist is on duty. All have been trained to administer the immunization. The Karns store is open 8 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily with pharmacy hours 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and 10 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Sundays. Smits has been store manager since 2005. He promoted the Walk with Walgreens wellness program and distributed free kits including a pedometer. Moss, an advertising sales representative for Shopper-News, has 25 years’ experience in advertising and marketing. She told business owners she will be happy to consult with them whether or not they purchase Shopper ads. “You’ve all got to market your company some way.” The Shopper-News started in the mid-1960s in Halls, expanding with a zone in Powell and then in Karns. The current Karns/Hardin Valley zone is “community specific,” Moss said.

Anders also noted that plan 2A would move school board members Thomas Deakins, Cindy Buttry and Kim Sepesi out of their current districts. The same plan also moves 3rd District Commissioner Tony Norman out of his district. Anders said he favors plan 1A or 2A for commission. Plan 1A moves a total of 53,005 residents among the districts. He summed up his situation simply: “I’m in a pickle.”

KARNS NOTES ■ Greater Karns Business Association meets at noon each second Thursday at Karns Community Club.

Impressive, but hardly English True story, folks. Following the Karns High Fall Concert, a dad thanked me for attending. “Hey, I know you! You’re from the Shopper.” I was thrilled.

“You’ve got a great music teacher,” I said. “Yes, but really she should lighten up,” he said. Names will remain unstated to protect the innocent student/singer. Caryn Marlowe led her various choirs through an array of songs, many in Latin or German or (???) and many with a heavy religious bent. OK. So there was “Oh! Susanna” for the less cultured among us … and “America the Beautiful” and even

Or yet another … “Gluttony clings to our senses; it overgrows, it encroaches, it stretches.” I felt myself getting fatter just sitting there and I wasn’t even eating popcorn! The concert was great fun anyhow. Marlowe brought along Megan Langford, a UT student working on her master’s degree and interning this term at Karns. Langford played clarinet for the combined choirs’ “Amazing Grace.” She played piano for most other songs. My favorites? “Somewhere Out There,” the theme Caryn Marlowe, choral director at Karns High School, leads the from that movie about a rat. Ensemble at last week’s Fall Concert. Photo by S.

Panther Press comes to Pleasant Ridge

Unique service spotlights pets A special kind of service took place at Beaver Ridge United Methodist Church on a Sunday afternoon in October. Community residents arrived for an outdoor assembly and brought their pets. It was the first blessing of the animals service at the church. Lily and Tim Diggs wait for a blessing for her fish Darlene.

Joe Rector

This custom is conducted in remembrance of St. Francis of Assisi, the patron saint of animals and the environment. The Feast of St. Francis is observed each Oct. 4. Senior minister Catherine Nance has always wanted to hold such a service. Her sister, Barbara Clark, also a Methodist minister, has conducted one at her church in Bristol. “I love animals and want to bring attention that they are important creations in the world and loved by the God who created them,”

she said. Owners and a variety of pets were on hand for the blessing. More than 20 dogs, six cats and two fish took part. Nance began the service with an explanation of the Feast of St. Francis and his love for all animals. Participants then sang a hymn, accompanied by a flutist. After a prayer, pet owners lined up, and Nance said a blessing over each animal. Some of the pets looked into the minister’s eyes as if they were held captive by her words. Others found paying attention difficult. One particular Dachshund joined humans in singing the hymn. Cats remained in their crates, and Nance joked that she would leave

the fish in water instead of holding them. Everyone in attendance enjoyed the event. They love their animals and consider them as parts of their families. The service lasted a half hour, and most stayed around and talked and allowed their pets to mingle. The service was opened to all in the community and was another way for Beaver Ridge United Methodist to reach out to others. It was a pleasant way to spend a portion of a fall Sunday afternoon and acknowledge the importance of animals in our world.

By Joe Rector About 30 students at Pleasant Ridge Elementary School are staying after school on Mondays. No, they aren’t serving detention or playing sports. They’re working extra hours to put together the school’s first newspaper. Kindergarten teacher Stephanie Fleetwood is spearheading the project. As children, she and her friends put together homemade newspapers and magazines. “I would love to have had the chance to publish the things I wrote so that more people could have seen them. This will be something that students and their parents can have for years to come.” Also helping with the newspaper are Michelle Sudbury and Valerie Gresser. On Mondays the students work on articles that they want to include in the paper. Their topics can cover anything that is of interest to them. That includes school events, trends, popular video games, movies and book reviews, and even comics. Through putting a news-

paper together, students can practice and refine their creative writing skills, learn the writing process and develop team-building skills. The first issue of the “Panther Press” is scheduled for publication around Thanksgiving. The goal is to then put out three more issues by the end of the year. Since the paper is brand new, she says the students and teachers will learn as they go and make changes as necessary. Fleetwood is a graduate of Karns High School and Tennessee Tech University. She’s in her third year as with Knox County Schools with two years as kindergarten and one as a 1st grade teacher. She began college by majoring in fine arts before

realizing that she wanted to work with children. “I am always amazed with the creativity that students bring to any project. Working with them is a wonderful way to make a living,” she says. When she finishes a day at school, Fleetwood returns home to spend time with her son, Lucas, 3. Any donations of money or supplies to the newspaper and its staff are welcomed. Interested parties can contact the school office at 5941354. Soon the Panther Press will be rolling out. Keep an eye out for it and pass along thanks to teachers who give up personal time without any extra pay to help students publish their paper.

Lions Club Zone meeting is Oct. 20 The Powell Lions Club will host the District 12N Region 3 Zone 1 meeting 7 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 20, at the Powell clubhouse on Old Clinton Pike. The zone includes the Karns, Fountain City, Inskip, Powell and North Knox Lions Clubs. All members of those clubs are invited. Info and RSVP to John Black at 719-4667.

Folks line up with their pets at Beaver Ridge United Methodist Church.

Picnic in the park “Where else would you rather be on a gorgeous weekend?” Gov. Bill Haslam asked attendees of the Legacy Parks Foundation luncheon in South Knoxville on Friday.

Madison Williams Gov. Bill Haslam

Hope for the term limited Last week, while in the process of putting together a story on the redistricting plans, I chanced upon vital information that until now had somehow eluded me (and a lot of others, as you’ll see). This is how it happened. I’m using pseudonyms to protect the guilty. Commissioner X: That plan moves Commissioner Y out of his district, but that means he’ll get to serve (if elected) two additional terms. Me: Uh, right. I’ll admit I was skeptical. Could such transparent if unintended chicanery be the answer to skirting those hated term limits? I consulted the Charter and could not find evidence to refute Commissioner X’s bold stratagem. Perhaps we were on to something that even former Mayor Mike Ragsdale’s wily staff had overlooked. So, I tried (OK, not very hard) to solicit the opinion of the county’s former CEO. If Commissioner X was right, it might not be too late for Ragsdale to move to Blount County (clearly out of his “district”), hire a good attorney to plead his case and demand a special election in a bid for a third term as Knox County Mayor. Mind you, I was not motivated by any ill feelings toward the current mayor. Mine was the same curiosity that inspired scientists to ask why the blowfish blows and the glowworm glows. I saw this as a grand experiment in political science. Sadly, I was unable to track down our former mayor, who may or may not be in Kosovo cutting trade deals for electrical supplies. Still, the possibilities opened up by Commissioner X’s insight were dazzling. Just by moving in some cases a few blocks down the road, former commissioners who thought their day in the sun had ended could have hung on indefinitely. Would this have violated the spirit of the law if not the intent? Let’s be honest – most wouldn’t be bothered. With the notable exception of Madeline Rogero, Bee DeSelm and yes, Ragsdale a few years back who term limited themselves off County Commission when not required to do so, politicians who wouldn’t slip through a loophole to stay in office are unknown in these parts. There’s no need to restrict innovative thinking to County Commission seats. Besides commissioners and the county mayor, from time to time we elect a trustee, a county clerk, a property assessor, a register of deeds, a sheriff, a circuit court clerk, a criminal court clerk, a law director, an attorney general, assorted judges and a partridge in a pear tree, the last only in odd-numbered years. These folks don’t represent “districts,” but – stay with me – what if they banded together and decided that term limits need not be a problem. What if they formed an organization so strong that it was a near certainty one of their numbers would always hold office in Knox County? This group could seize and hold on to power year after year, constantly reinforcing itself by limiting access to elected office to one of their own. Brilliant! What? They’re already here? And they’re called what? Oh, yeah. Republicans.

Haslam, a longtime “supporter, advocate and friend” of Legacy Parks, delivered the keynote speech after Carol Evans, the Foundation’s executive director, spoke about the group’s current initiatives, which include creating Knoxville’s Urban Wilderness – a system of parks, trails, greenways and forests in South Knoxville. In fact, after an uphill bus ride we gathered in the woods near the blue KUB water tower for lunch prepared by Gourmet’s Market. The site, overlooking the Tennessee River, is part of that urban wilderness. The event attracted a who’s who of Knoxville’s business and government leadership. We spotted Phillip Fulmer, Victor Ashe, Cynthia Moxley and Mark Padgett. We sat at the table with Madeline Rogero and

Tommy Schumpert. This was an exciting experience for a Shopper intern. Almost overwhelming. Call it whelming. Haslam recalled “new governor’s school” where he met some 30 colleagues. Every one had run and been elected as a “jobs governor.” Haslam realized each was competing to recruit the same businesses to his or her state. “It’s really a competitive field. … You have to make sure that you have infra-

structure and educational opportunities, a skilled workforce … and everything you need to attract jobs,” Haslam said. “But what (decision makers) really want is a place where they can live and build their business. “We’re about creating places where people want to live, and efforts like this (the Legacy Parks Foundation) are critical to achieving what we want to do,” he said. Legacy Parks promotes a healthy lifestyle and it helps

Where are the issues? The runoff campaign for mayor is half over which is good news because the discussion to date has been anything but enlightening. Numerous charges and counter charges have emerged. Both Padgett and Rogero are better than their public statements. Padgett has set the agenda so far, although Rogero will likely prevail on Nov. 8. It all started when Padgett won the support of the other mayoral candidates. It is a free country and they have a right to back him or Rogero or stay out of it. Rogero then called the Padgett endorsements a “stunt.” Exercising one’s First Amendment rights is not a stunt. Furthermore, Rogero sought the same endorsements and had she won them, she would have praised each as “able, credible leaders of our community whose support humbles and honors me.” Rogero got bad advice in making this an issue. Her counter news conference gave the endorsements much more circulation and allowed a second news release from Ivan Harmon demanding

the economy by promoting tourism, Haslam said. He brought along Susan Whitaker, the state’s tourism commissioner. “Legacy Parks Foundation is doing great work,” Haslam continued, “… what they do is pretty unique … it’s a treasure.” Legacy Parks Foundation is a nonprofit organization that works to assure that Knoxville and Knox County have great recreational opportunities and that local natural beauty and open spaces are preserved. The annual $100 per plate fundraiser is its major source of income. “Legacy Parks is helping Knoxville be the type of place where people choose to live, work and raise a family,” said Haslam. “Somewhere along the way, people figured out that this is a great place to live.”

Victor Ashe

an apology. However, there are issues Rogero could raise about Padgett which are fair and unanswered. These include why more than half of his campaign donations come from outside Knoxville? Why do people in other states want him to be mayor? Why will he not come clean on the details of his business which he cites as a reason to elect him? Where does he stand on tax increases? When he says there is waste in city government, what does he mean? Where is the waste? It may be there, but he should tell us what he means. The media have given Padgett a pass on what really constitutes his company eGovernment Solutions. Only Metro Pulse columnist Joe Sullivan has raised questions about Padgett’s business and Rogero has not picked up on it.

Rogero has not yet put meat on the bones of her campaign proposals. She is for a green city but has not offered proposals on replacing the trees destroyed this spring by storms on city property and medians. She has not told us what she thinks about making the city pension plan financially sounder. She has not told us if city street paving should be increased. Neither has Padgett. Padgett has failed to outline policy positions where he might challenge Rogero. Do they differ on future tax hikes? Do they differ on red light cameras? Do they differ on the Ten Year Homeless Plan? Besides age, gender and background where do they differ on actual policy? Do they differ on homeless housing adjacent to Flenniken School in South Knoxville? It is not negative to raise issues which allow the voters more information on who their next mayor really is. The same goes for council candidates who are often ignored. Notes: Monday, Oct. 3, was the 220th birthday

of the city of Knoxville. Unfortunately, this day passed unnoticed and not observed at the city. The 200th birthday of Knoxville was celebrated the entire year of 1991 led by Sue Clancy and Roseanne Wolf. Of course the 225th birthday arrives in 2016 which is two mayoral terms from now. However, the next mayor should/could name a task force to determine the best way to observe that milestone which he/ she can preside over should he/she win a second term. Marilyn Roddy had to be disappointed in her weak showing in her home precinct of Sequoyah Hills where she got only 51 percent of the vote for state Senator and tied Becky Massey on election day 219 to 219. But she can be pleased with running well in Fountain City where she tied Massey at Gresham School (169 to 169) and lost Shannondale School by only four votes. Overall, Massey was a substantial winner and is the favorite in the Nov. 8 general election against Gloria Johnson who has not lived in the district.

Paradise, Hawaiian style PULL UP A CHAIR ‌ | Jake Mabe PU


onolulu, Hawaii – What to say about a perfect trip to paradise? Amazing. Awesome. Incredible. Bluest water you’ve ever seen. Stunning rainbows. Scrumptious food. And none of that does Hawaii justice. Put it on your bucket list. If you can, go. If you can, go tomorrow. And go to Maui. Oh, yeah, you’ve got to see Honolulu, and we’ll get to that in a minute. But, spend some time on Maui. It’s ever so much the laid-back, tropical paradise you picture in your mind the minute somebody says “Hawaii.� We stayed just northwest of Lahaina on the western shore. And, if you look around a bit, or go off-season, you don’t have to break the bank to do it. Our condominium resort sported an oceanfront view, sea turtles swimming in the surf and the best sunsets you’ll ever see, all for about $135 a night. Heck, I’ve paid more than that in Milwaukee. And if you go, you have to eat at Mama’s Fish House in Paia. Two words: Mai Tai. Be prepared to take out a second mortgage on your home when you get the check. But, the view alone is worth it. And the fish is out

of this world. It’s so fresh they even put the names of the guys who caught them right on the menu. Oh, I almost forgot to tell you: After lunch at Mama’s, we window shopped in Paia. In a little antique shop, I found (of all things) a knife for sale from the 1982 World’s Fair. Ain’t kiddin’. Do the helicopter tour if you must (we did; it was great), but definitely take a boat ride. And take one through Safari Boat Excursions and spend a few hours with Crazy Dave. Crazy Dave earned his nickname. He was fired from virtually every other outfit in Lahaina for taking visitors places he wasn’t supposed to go. He finally said to heck with it and bought his own boat. We went on an eight-hour excursion around Lanai. We saw jumping dolphins, snorkeled with exotic fish, watched Dave ease his boat into a cave, and even spotted Molokai’s leper colony and the Ritz-Carlton villa where Bill and Melinda Gates were wed. We had partnered up with Jen and Deb, two Australian natives who were staying at our condo resort, and had lots of laughs. Find out more at http:// www.safariboatexcursions. com/.

There is one glory of the sun. ... (1 Corinthians 15: 41 NRSV) Is it not by his high superfluousness we know Our God? For to be equal a need Is natural, animal, mineral: but to fling Rainbows over the rain And beauty above the moon, and secret rainbows On the domes of deep sea-shells. ... (“The Excesses of God,� Robinson Jeffers) Someday I am going to wreck my car, and it will be all God’s fault! The Creator keeps flinging “rainbows over the rain,� and setting the heavens afire with glorious sunsets, and lighting the night skies with diamonds beyond counting. And I can’t seem to stop looking at them. I was driving west on I-40 the other afternoon. It was the second trip west I had made after work, and I was feeling a little put-upon that anyone (especially me!) should have to face rush hour traffic twice on the same day. I had worked all day at my full-time job, driven west to run an errand for my part-time job, had to go back east for a meeting that was semirelated to both jobs and west again for a rehearsal. I came around a curve and up a hill. And there was, quite simply, the most amazing sunset I have ever seen. It is surprising I did not have – or cause – an accident. Times like that, I realize how much I enjoy writing. I immediately started thinking about how I could describe what I was seeing. The sun itself was disappearing below the horizon. Above the sun, radiating out in a wedge of pink-gold luminescence was a glow that would make painter Albert Bierstadt envious. There were discernible clouds around it, framing it, but at the center was this glow

that was like a cloud of fire. I tried to imagine what meteorological phenomenon was causing the light and color, both of which seemed both solid and ethereal. I glanced at it again and again, even while forcing myself to pay attention to the road. Then I noticed that the very air around me was the color of honey, softly reflecting the golden light that covered the world. I could barely breathe. Such things make me understand God as a God who loves the world and woos it unto Himself. Or God as a bowerbird who decorates his nest with bright, shiny objects to impress his love. Or God as a kindergartner who paints a picture for her mother and hopes it will be posted on the fridge. Those are flights of fancy, I know. In my more serious moments, I know in my heart that God creates beauty for the sheer joy of it, because God is God, and because God is good, and because God loves to show us the wonders of this glorious, astounding, glowing, golden universe. Thanks be to God!

Hollywood comes to Concord In small hamlets like Concord there are always events that stand out in the memory of its citizens, and when conversations among the tobacco chewers and whittlers in front of Hobbs’ Store got a little dull, the time when Concord was the setting for a series of movie scenes made a great default subject. Concord villagers enjoyed a brief brush with Hollywood in 1960 when the hamlet was chosen by Elia Kazan as a place to shoot a few scenes from his movie “Wild River” starring Montgomery Clift, Lee Remick and Jo Van Fleet. The short series was shot in front of the present-day Village Art Gallery on Front Street, which was originally a bank. For the most part, the villagers, although curious,

Malcolm Shell

barely noticed the action because none of them were involved in the production. But the event that sent the little town into a spin was when a Hollywood movie director, Servando Gonzalez, saw the facades of old buildings with their covered walkways that resembled those in typical western movies and decided to use the town as a sequence in his movie, “The Fool Killer.” What made this movie different from “Wild River” shot five years earlier was that the director planned to

use the locals in the movie. The year was 1965, and word of the plan spread like wildfire among the citizenry. Many villagers thought it would “put the town on the map,” and they were not sure that would be a good thing. The film was based on a novel by Helen Eustis. Gonzalez had directed a moderately successful movie titled “Yanco” in 1964. And he probably saw the possibility of his film becoming another Civil War era epic like “Gone With the Wind.” The cast included Anthony Perkins in the lead role and Edward Albert in the supporting role along with Charlotte Jones and Salome Jens. The movie was a poetic melodrama about a 12-yearold boy (Albert) and his love for a kindly, philosophic ax murderer (Perkins) with

whom, for a few weeks, he roamed the post-Civil War South. Unfortunately, the film was not destined to become a competitor of Margaret Mitchell’s classic. It was partially filmed in 1963 and wasn’t finished and released until 1965, probably in a last ditch effort to recoup some production costs. But the success or failure of the film was of little concern to Concord Village folks who saw the opportunity to “get in the movies.” Many of the locals, including my sister, took advantage of that opportunity and secured minor roles as people on the street. To the best of my recollection, the actors made their own period dress clothes, which didn’t result in much consistency. The asphalt streets were covered with red clay to resemble typical streets during the period. And when they were watered down you

could even see the wagon tracks. The more obvious features such as gas pumps were camouflaged by greenery to resemble bushes, and store front signs were covered with props that changed their names from grocery stores and barber shops to livery stables and saloons. I am not sure about the compensation, if any, to business owners or the cast of local characters, but it probably wouldn’t have mattered. After all, how can you think about money when the possibility of a movie career might be in the offing? As it turned out, Concord was only one of several locations that were included in the film, and much to the disappointment of many, it never put the village on the map as a prime movie location, nor did it catapult any of the local characters into stardom. But for several years it created a topic of conversation among the

locals that rivaled even the most memorable events like the train wreck that occurred there in the late 1940s. The old western type facades that were once the trademark of the Village have been replaced by more modern buildings, including a new brick building that once housed the post office that was only operational for a few years before moving to a newer and more convenient location in the Lovell area. Most of the locals who “starred” in the movie have since passed on. I contacted several villagers who remain, but age has taken its toll. And although most remembered the event very well, they couldn’t recall much about specifics. And with the passing of the whittlers and tobacco chewers, the coming of Hollywood to the little hamlet became prologue as a subject of conversation.

Allison bakes and decorates cakes and cupcakes for weddings, birthdays and other events. She developed her interest in baking and decorating and the idea of starting her own business after watching TLC’s “Cake Boss.” “I thought it looked like fun so I made and decorated a cake for a Christmas party and I was instantly hooked,” she says. “I convinced my mom to let me take the Wilson Cake Decorating classes at AC Moore, and they were a blast! I learned so much.” Allison has been baking and decorating cakes and cupcakes for nearly 2 1/2 years. She spends four to

Allison is passionate about her work, but sometimes running her business can be a lot to handle; “very stressful at times,” she says. “But I enjoy it because I am doing what I love and it’s a great way to earn extra money.

Financial Focus Do men and women invest differently? Several years ago, a book titled Men Are From Mars, Women Are From Venus was quite popular. As the title suggests, the book argues that men and women are vastly different from each other, particularly in their emotional needs and in the way they communicate. While not Wendy everyone agrees with Schopp the notion that men and women might as well be from different planets, most of us would probably concur that the two genders frequently behave differently – and this divergence in behavior may also show up in the way that we invest. In fact, various studies and anecdotal evidence suggests these differences in the way that men and women invest: ■ Men tend to trade more often than women. Men seem to buy and sell investments more frequently than women. This difference could result in an advantage for women investors. For one thing, if women do trade less, they may incur fewer commission charges, fees and other expenses, all of which can eat into investment returns. Also, by holding investments longer, women may be able to take better advantage of market rallies. During the 2008-2009 financial crisis, for example, men were more likely than women to sell shares of stock at market lows, which led to bigger losses among male traders – and fewer gains when some of the stock values began to rise again — according to a study by Vanguard, a mutual fund company. ■ Men tend to invest more aggressively than women. Perhaps not surprisingly, men seem to be more willing to take risks with their investments. This trait can be both positive and negative. On the positive side, risk is associated

with reward, so the more aggressive the investment, the greater the potential for growth. On the negative side, taking too much risk pretty much speaks for itself. Ideally, all investors – men and women – should stick with investments that fit their individual risk tolerance. ■ Women are more likely to look at the “big picture.” Although both men and women investors want information, women seem to take a more “holistic” approach — that is, instead of focusing strictly on performance statistics, they tend to delve deeper into their investments’ background, competitive environment and other factors. This quest for additional knowledge may help explain why all-female investment clubs have achieved greater returns than all-male clubs, according to a study by the National Association of Investors Corp., which represents thousands of investment clubs across the country. ■ Men may be more optimistic about the financial markets. Some studies show that men are more optimistic about key economic indicators and future stock market performance. Optimism can be a valuable asset when it comes to investing; if you have confidence in the future, you’re more likely to invest for it, and to continue investing. On the other hand, false optimism may lead to over-confidence, which can have negative results for investors. Neither men nor women have a monopoly on positive investment behaviors; each gender can probably learn something from the other. Ultimately, of course, it’s your decision-making, not your x- or y-chromosomes, that will determine your ability to make progress toward your long-term goals. So educate yourself about your choices, and get the help you need from a financial professional, as you invest through the years.

Hardin Valley golfer prepares for next step Gosselin places second in fourth trip to state tourney

This eggshell mosaic was created in Art Gallery 205.

By Natalie Lester

Griffin Ahern-Clark, 5, a kindergarten student, won first place for his cover art in Turtle magazine, a product of U.S. Kids.

Art teacher Jeanne Hardin produced the fiber art at right, a scene from her home in Tucson. More pictures from Art Gallery 205 on www. ShopperNewsNow/.

Art Gallery 205 By Sandra Clark Wouldn’t it be fun to attend school in an art gallery? That’s the case at Cedar Bluff Elementary School where kids take art class in Gallery 205. The teacher, Jeanne Hardin, is part artist, part teacher and part P.T. Barnum. The kids thrive. Hardin In fact, two boys just won national recognition and prizes for their artwork. Griffin Ahern-Clark, 5, a kindergarten student, won first place for his cover art in Turtle magazine, a product of U.S. Kids. Griffin drew “I Love Playing Hide-andSeek With My Two Brothers.” The boy with the dark hair is my brother Ashton, 13. The other one is Jack-

son, 7, he said. Griffin drew the picture at school. Turtle is a magazine for preschool kids, published by a division of The Saturday Evening Post. For his prize, he won $1,500 for his school along with art supplies for himself. He donated the prize to the Cedar Bluff preschool for art supplies and playground equipment. Samuel Vennix, 7, a 2nd grade student, won second place in Humpty Dumpty magazine, published for older children. Samuel drew a boy on a boat called, “Me Sailing the Wide-Open Seas!” He used pencils, oil

pastels and markers. “I did this in my art class,” he said. “The ship is headed to the Phillipines so I can see my grandma.” Sam won $1,000 for his school. Interestingly, both Griffin and Samuel said they want to be pilots. Hardin had another winner three years ago and bought light tables for the art room from those winnings. Last year she and art teacher Stephanie Turpin bought a kiln. Yes, kids at Cedar Bluff do pottery. Hardin and Turpin do “cross curricular” instruction, using a ruler to mea-

sure, for instance, to reinforce math skills. Hardin is in her sixth year at Cedar Bluff. A specialist in fiber art, Hardin has a weaving hanging in her classroom gallery. It’s got a Southwestern flavor, reflecting the 37 years the teacher lived in Tucson, Ariz. She also brought a vertical loom from home which students enjoy. Younger kids work with yarn on paper looms. It’s the best way to start. “Yarn and glitter,” she says, are two materials the kids enjoy and neither is available at the supply warehouse. Last week, egg shell mosaics lay drying on racks. One horse’s head was made with grey yarn with the background in crushed egg shells. The Gallery’s display case was purchased for $13 from McDonald’s. If you’re heading for Cedar Bluff Elementary School, don’t miss Art Gallery 205. It’s a place where great kids do great work every day.

I was 5,” he said. “The lessons I’ve learned in golf are important in life.” Gosselin said the game has given him his dedicated work ethic and taught him patience and time management. He has set high goals for his game and is committed to play next at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. “I’m so pumped,” he said. “Coach Mark Guhne is a really good coach and people who go into that program come out better players.

The Town Of Farragut presents

Friday, October 28 5pm - 7pm Mayor Bob Leonard Park

The season did not end exactly like he pictured, but Hardin Valley Academy senior Wes Gosselin said the second place finish at the recent TSSAA golf state tournament will fuel his future. “A lot of people were happy and proud of me, but I was upset. I felt like I should have done better and getting second my last year was hard, but I will use it as motivation to do something else, something bigger,” he said. “Maybe I’ll go win a college tournament.” Gosselin finished his senior year first in the district and third in the region. He recently returned from his fourth and final trip to the state tournament. “High school golf has been really awesome,” he said. “It has been a lot of fun to play with different people and make those memories.” One of his fondest memories came as a defeat in his last regular season match. “My little brother actually beat me by one stroke,” he said. “As much as I hate to lose, I was so happy for him. He will never let me live it down, but I wouldn’t want to forget it anyway.” Gosselin has played golf competitively since he was 11 but said he started before then. “My parents have pictures of me playing when

News from Knoxville’s Community Development Corporation (KCDC)

Residences at Eastport opens By Alvin Nance You have to go back to the 1970s to find new construction for elderly residents in the Five Points community. I’m glad to report that KCDC is doing its part to fill that need. We’ve nearly completed a $15 million renovation of the former Eastport Elementary School into The Residences at Eastport, an 85-unit home for lowincome adults age 62 and above. We expect residents to start moving in before Nance the end of the year. I’ve received a lot of positive feedback on the project, but I never expected the 200 people at a recent open house. They were eager to tour a furnished model unit and learn more about the project, which is just a first step in what we plan to be a major revitalization of the entire Five Points community. Those taking tours included potential residents and their family. We’ll gather at the Residences at Eastport for an official ribbon-cutting ceremony at 1:30 p.m. Tuesday, Oct. 25. Both mayors will be there. I hope you will be, too.


Could you be a hoarder? If you have ever wondered if you or someone you know – maybe even a family member – could be classified as a hoarder, and perhaps more importantly, if you have wondered if there is help for this serious problem, the answer is just five days away.

Anne Hart

The UT Personal and Professional Development Program is offering a free class titled “Understanding Hoarding� from 9:30 a.m. to noon this coming Saturday. Call 974-0150 to register. The class is open to the public at no charge and will be led by two true professionals in the field, Mary Pankiewicz and Jerry Fried, who have conducted these classes before and are recognized experts.

Pankiewicz has amassed professional designations way too numerous to list here, but she is a Certified Professional Organizer in Chronic Disorganization and is professionally trained to work with hoarders. Fried is a licensed clinical social worker who specializes in working with hoarders and with obsessive compulsive disorder, the umbrella designation under which hoarding falls. Pankiewicz says the classes are usually about evenly divided between persons who know they are hoarders and need help and friends and/or family members seeking ways to help someone else. As a precaution, everyone who attends the class must sign a confidentiality statement to encourage open communication. Hoarding is a significant problem for the 2-to-5 percent of the population afflicted by it. At its worst, as in the hoarding of animals for instance, it can involve law enforcement, the health

and a health and fitness center.

Prior to his tenure at Mercy, he served in positions of leadership at St. Mary’s Health System and

Mary Pankiewicz department and other protective agencies, according to Fried. He says that in less severe cases, women tend to hoard clothing and men hoard tools and hardware, but anything and everything is subject to hoarding. In the most severe cases, individuals hoard everything and live in homes so crammed full of “stuff� they are endangering their own lives through falls, respiratory and other health problems, and even fire.

It is vital that those who will be working with them have the necessary training to encourage them through the often painful process of change.� The goal of the UT class is to help those attending understand the roots of hoarding and how to deal with them. Tips are given on how to best communicate with family members and others who are hoarders to help them help themselves. “Success requires a collaborative effort and lots of compassion,� Pankiewicz says. Hoarding is defined in three ways: the acquisition of and failure to discard possessions that appear to be useless or of limited value, living spaces significantly cluttered so as to preclude activities for which these spaces were originally designed, and significant distress or impairment in functioning because of clutter.

Ah yes, Alabama week, once the measuring stick for football men of Tennessee. Jimmy Hahn missed a block in the Tennessee-Alabama game 60 years ago. It made news. Robert R. Neyland reviewed the film and covered for his almost perfect head-hunter. “The linebacker was out of position and Hahn couldn’t find him.” Then as now, those with the ball dominated headlines. Long runs and touchdowns didn’t fool Neyland. He said one good blocker was worth three ball-carriers. He wrote a margin note in his coaching manual: “Credit blockers for big gains.” The national champion 1951 Volunteers rushed for 3,068 yards. It was a way of life back then. Indeed, tailbacks enjoyed precision interference. Hahn was the best blocker, best in the SEC. He won the Jacobs Trophy. The recent death of center Bob Davis dusted off memories of his long-ago roommate, an intriguing character, tough 186-pound blocking back, son of a preacher man. Hahn was pivotal in several shenanigans, including a massive panty raid. He found novel ways into and out of trouble. Some stories Bob told. Jimmy added some. He enjoyed college freedom. He developed a wild reputation for doing crazy things and had to do some more to live up to it. One was taking aim from his dorm window and shooting out a security light near the stadium. Broken glass showered down on a campus patrolman. Spectators, at other windows, cheered. Neyland got the news at breakfast. Did you do it?

Marvin West Yes sir. Why? Hahn came up with a good story. The light was disturbing his sleep, put up with it a long time, finally did something about it. The General warned about the dangers of firing a rifle. He went on to recollections of his military marksmanship and many other adventures at West Point. Hahn said it was fascinating. “After 45 minutes or an hour, he suggested I bring my .22 rifle to his office for safekeeping and take it home the next time I went that way.” Davis thought Hahn’s value to the Vols could have been a forgiveness factor for transgressions – like the Walgreens adventure. Hahn liked drug store ice cream. He plotted a night raid. All he had to do was become invisible as the manager took a last look around before turning out the lights. Hahn did it but before his first scoop, he hurried to check the exit. The back door had a push-bar but it was double locked. “I suddenly lost my appetite. I couldn’t find a way out. I finally called Mickey O’Brien (trainer). He called the police. The police called the store manager.” Hahn was ready with a creative explanation. He had been in a phone booth, talking to a girl, when the store went dark. He yelled and yelled. Walgreens’ manager was sorry for the inconvenience. Hahn found a magic way into the team dining area

after hours. He took a gallon of peaches, ate far too many and solicited help with leftovers. Peaches became his nickname. Another time, he raided the walk-in freezer. Jim Thompson, manager of the training table, returned unexpectedly, saw light under the door and thought he was being burglarized. He investigated with pistol in hand. “Mr. Jim, Mr. Jim,” exclaimed Hahn. “Don’t shoot me. I’m just having an ice cream.” Hahn didn’t sleep much that night. He knew Thompson would tell Neyland. He didn’t. Teammates liked latenight chili dogs with onions from Smoky Mountain Market. Hahn would walk the railroad bridge across the Tennessee River as a shortcut to pick up goodies. He was going south when he encountered a northbound train. “It was good that I didn’t have my hands full. I needed both to get under the track and hold on. It would have been bad if I had dropped the hot dogs.” Hahn got serious as an Army officer and retired as a colonel. He became a real estate broker. He owned a large farm in Virginia and a vacation home in Germany. He was chaplain for a retired military group. He sang in his church choir. “I came from a religious family. Two grandfathers, my father, my brother and a son were Lutheran ministers. It would not have been acceptable for me to turn out all bad.” Hahn yarns and 200 others are in Marvin West’s first book, “Tales of the Tennessee Vols.” It is available by mail from WESTCOM, P.O. Box 38, Maynardville, TN 37807. The cost is $20.

Although she had lost weight before with Weight Watchers for her daughter’s wedding, it didn’t yield her long-term success. “I got to the point that I hated myself, and my son told me, ‘Well, do something about it.’ So, I knew he was right – the ball was in my court if I truly wanted to lose weight,â€? said CofďŹ n. This time, CofďŹ n didn’t start out with expectations on her weight loss. She wanted to approach it as a life-change that would not only help her lose weight, but also keep it off. “People started noticing when I was down about 20 pounds,â€? remembers CofďŹ n. “I remember being so tickled when one of my coworkers said she could see that my face was changing – she then quickly asked how much weight had I lost.â€? CofďŹ n said having people notice was a wonderful experience and that when her son complimented her saying, “I’m proud of you!â€? she knew that all her efforts were paying off. CofďŹ n says she had always been “a beanpoleâ€? until she reached her 40s. Weight gain

Harriet Coffin settled in, and further medical evaluation revealed that her thyroid had stopped working. She was placed on hormone replacement therapy, but that didn’t help her lose the extra pounds that she had already gained. “This was all about the time my children were growing up and my daily routine was shifting,â€? said CofďŹ n. “I remember it being a real slump for me.â€?

She used jeans and loose tops to camouage her weight. Now, she’s able to enjoy shopping and wear styles that she never thought she would ďŹ t into again. After six months with the Medically Supervised Diet Plan, she’s more than 50 pounds lighter and enjoying herself again. The plan is a six-month course that provides assistance from a nurse practitioner, dietitian and an ex-

ercise physiologist who monitors weight loss progress through appointments and weekly classes. Support during weight loss is important. CofďŹ n credits the staff at the CWMC for her success because she could get all of her concerns answered and she learned tools that allowed her to not only make better choices, but understand why the choices would also provide her lifelong success. Important tips that helped her throughout her weight loss journey were: N Getting rid of all the junk food N Exclusively using whole wheat bread N Eating lots of fruits and vegetables N Learning how to read food labels because some ingredients, like sodium, wreak havoc on your body She has regained her energy and the freedom it’s given her to be able to keep up with her three granddaughters. The fears of gaining weight and having to take extra medicine to treat conditions caused by poor health are a thing of the past. People who haven’t seen her in a long time do a double-take. CofďŹ n looks forward to reconnecting with others who haven’t seen her in a long time. The Covenant Weight Management Center is located on the Fort Sanders West campus.

Special corporate wellness opportunities Covenant Weight Management Center (CWMC) offers corporate wellness programs for local businesses to keep their employees healthy and reduce costs related to health coverage and absenteeism. Nearly two out of every three adults in the United States are overweight or obese. Research shows that health care and pharmacy costs are higher for employees with weight problems compared to those with normal body weights. Businesses have an opportunity to reduce their costs by offering a weight loss program in the work environment. CWMC helps employers provide to their staff a team of weight loss experts, including a nurse practitioner, exercise physiologist and registered dietitian, to develop a weight loss program speciďŹ c to the needs of their organization.

business to design a plan that ranges from a very comprehensive weight loss program to supplemental classes for your current wellness initiatives. All of the center’s corporate weight loss services are effective and can be adapted for the employees’ convenience. The program is affordable and the cost depends on the components of the program offered at the worksite to employees.

Discounted and tier pricing are available according to the number of employees enrolled in the program simultaneously.

Yoga within your reach Janel Harrell

By Sandra Clark

De-stress for the holidays While the holidays are among the most joyous times of year; they can also be the most stressful. Our normally fast paced lifestyle speeds up to practically breakneck pace when we add in the extra family obligations, shopping, and all of the additional work that piles up at the end of the year. We often find ourselves with barely the time to think, much less simply breathe. This year, instead of frantically racing from one thing to the next trying to get everything done, allow some time and space for yourself. Decompress, retreat and breathe for just a little while. Study after study has shown that taking time out of a hectic life can actually improve our ability to function in the chaotic world of the holiday season. Taking the time to center ourselves can help us all meet our obligations during this crazy time of year as well as helping us relax enough to enjoy ourselves. Starting Wednesday, Nov. 30, the Wellness Center at Dowell Springs will be offering a short series of yoga classes designed to help us all relax just a bit more this season. Using gentle yoga postures appropriate for even the most beginner student, breathing practices and some relaxing visualization techniques, this 3-week series of classes will help you take a moment to breathe and destress for your holidays. Call the Wellness Center today for more details and to sign up for this calming series of classes that can help you not only survive the holiday season but restore your enjoyment of this time of year as well.

Yoga is for everyone, says instructor Pam Milner, and with the great facilities at The Wellness Center at Dowell Springs, she expects to create “a yoga center within a wellness center.”

Who will benefit? N





BUSY CAREGIVERS can De-Stress for the Holidays with a 3-week program starting Nov. 30. Taught by Janel Harrell, the class emphasizes gentle yoga poses along with visualization and breathing techniques. CANCER PATIENTS and those coming off a hip or knee replacement gain strength from gentle, restorative yoga. ENDURANCE ATHLETES can gain flexibility and build a stronger core with a program called “Hot Yoga!” PEOPLE WITH WEIGHT OR MOBILITY ISSUES can take “Chair Yoga,” a class in which poses are taken while sitting in a chair or using the chair for support. INDIVIDUALS WHO ARE FIT and working toward becoming fitter will find yoga a calming change of pace.

Pam Milner laughs. She knows the advanced yoga classes are real workouts with real sweat and real results. “Everyone’s body is different,” she says, “but yoga helps us all by reducing blood pressure, boosting the immune system and bringing peace of mind. The trick is to get the classes designed for each population.”

Coming in December: Yoga for Endurance A 12-week workshop designed for runners, cyclists & triathletes Preparing for a marathon or looking to build endurance during the offseason of training? This is the workshop for you.

Instructor Pam Milner demonstrates a yoga pose

Why yoga and not just the typical stretching? The sequencing of poses utilizing breathe work allows the athlete to go deeper in the poses and begins to build endurance. Other benefits are building a stronger core, opening hips, lengthening hamstrings, opening shoulders and creating space in the hip flexors.

PROGRAMS AND OFFERINGS Chair Yoga – For everyone, but, especially “the young at heart.” It is a gentle form of yoga that is practiced sitting in a chair or using a chair for support. LiveWell Lifestyle Change Program – This 12 week class meets 3 times/week for an hour and a half.

Sit To Be Fit – Chair- based exercise program for those who have difficulty standing or balancing. Class will work on balance, strength and flexibility with participants sitting or standing with a chair close by. Forever Fit – A class for more active Seniors with an emphasis on cardiovascular exercise along with light

ROUTINE With the summer coming to an end and life getting back into the swing of things, a routine is just what you need to transform yourself.

Milner has practiced yoga for 14 years and taught it for five. She holds a 200-hour instructor’s certification. “Our instructors are highly qualified and experienced,” said marketing manager Juli Urevick. “Each has areas in which they are strong and different teaching styles.” Urevick is working with the center’s director, Lisa Wolf, to design the yoga classes. De-Stress for the Holidays starts in November, while Chair Yoga is coming in December. On the drawing board for 2012 are a beginner yoga series and “Hot Yoga,” which is essentially yoga in a heated room. “It makes those muscles limber!” said Milner. People will start training for the Knoxville Marathon in mid-November. The instructors have designed the upcoming Yoga for Endurance series with local runners and endurance athletes in mind. And participants aren’t required to join The Wellness Center, Wolf said. They can simply buy a “yoga pass” for classes. Info: 232-1410.
