‘Skeeters’ on the run By Nancy Anderson

Imagine No Malaria. That’s the goal of the United Methodist Church, adopted in 2008 when the Methodists set out to raise $75 million within seven years to end the deaths and suffering from malaria in Africa. In May, a benchmark was reached with $40 million raised or pledged. Locally, the congregation of Beaver Ridge United Methodist Church jumped in to help. The Karns church met its goal through the efforts of Ron and Lynn Johnson. Their Skeeter Run offered fun, fellowship and exercise to participants. On race day, more than 300 friends joined the Johnsons on Neyland Drive to walk or run 3.1 miles. Every sponsored step earned money, and the congregation not only met but surpassed its $10,000 goal. That’s enough to buy treated bed nets, medical treatment and research to save 1,000 lives. According to an online arTo page A-3

Road construction lags By Sandra Clark The widening of Oak Ridge Highway (SR 62) has been delayed by utility relocations, according to Mark Nagi of TDOT. Contracted to APAC-Atlanta Inc., the $32 million project from Copper Kettle Road to Schaad Road is estimated to be finished by year’s end 2014. The contract for the 3.925-mile project was awarded Feb. 10, 2011. According to the TDOT website, to date 107,916 cubic yards of dirt has been moved. The road is being widened to four lanes (two lanes in each direction). Meanwhile, Powell motorists may drive on the new Emory Road (SR 131) from Gill Road to Clinton Highway sooner than expected. The $15.7 million project is set to be finished by Aug. 31, 2014, yet

the work by Potter South East LLC is 65.2 percent complete with just 47 percent of the contracted time elapsed. “Work is progressing on the project,” said Steve Borden, director of TDOT Region 1 and assistant chief engineer. “With most of the bridge completed, efforts will continue to complete the grading operations, drainage structures and connections to the existing roadways.” In other TDOT news, crews got straight to work on the ramp improvement project at Callahan Drive, and much of the grading is complete. When finished, northbound traffic will have two ramp lanes off I-75 and the $1.2 million project should prevent backups onto the interstate. The contractor

is APAC-Atlantic Inc. Estimated completion date is Sept. 30. The long-awaited widening of Maynardville Highway from Temple Acres in Halls to the Union County line is still just that – awaited. Nagi said “the earliest this contract would be in a bid letting would be Aug. 20, 2013.” Rightsof-way have been acquired and legal notice published for demolition of structures within those rights-of-way. The project is 6.24 miles, and Nagi said it more than likely would be in a fall letting. Meanwhile, the worst parts of the road (where small cars might disappear) have been resurfaced. Ah, patience. Tazewell Pike: TDOT has opened bids for repaving SR 131

(Tazewell Pike) from SR 331 (Emory Road) to the Union County line. Apparent low bidders at the May 24 letting were APACAtlantic Inc., $543,597, and Rogers Group Inc., $568,638. As of Friday, the contract had not been awarded. There’s no word on the proposed Halls connector, a Knox County project that was designed and punted to TDOT. It would permit a left turn from Norris Freeway onto Maynardville Highway by removing a swath of median which includes tribute trees planted by the Halls Business and Professional Association about 10 years ago. And there’s nothing new on the proposed intersection improvements at I-640 and Broadway.

Who knew and when did they know it? Mayors deny support of bill By Betty Bean State Rep. Steve Hall faced pointed questions from members of the Council of West Knox County Homeowners who said they were kept in the dark about a bill that removes the scenic highway designation from a segment of Middlebrook Pike where Tennova Healthcare has purchased land for a new hospital. Hall said both city and county mayors knew about the bill and no one voiced opposition. Contacted after the meeting, Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero said she didn’t talk to Tennova representatives or to city lobbyist Tony Thompson about the issue, and would have advised Tennova to consult the neighbors about their plans had she been asked.

Although it was presented as providing a lot of jobs, it will also cost a lot of jobs,” she said.

government Conflict on Civil Service board Sam Anderson, chair of the city Civil Service Board and former Parks and Recreation director, is being forced off the Civil Service Board, along with Don Green, a former city police officer, due to residency. Both live outside the city. Anderson lives immediately adjacent to the city boundary while Green lives in Anderson County.

Victor Ashe

I am trying to get to the bottom of this, but no one is owning up as to who triggered the legal opinion. It came out of nowhere and something smells. Evidence points to Vickie Hatfield as the one who played the pivotal role. Here are the facts. Vickie Hatfield, Civil Service director, when asked if she requested the opinion, emailed back to this writer, “No one filed a complaint or anything of that nature. It (residency issue) was inadvertently brought to my attention during a conversation about other matters. Once aware, I was unsure what to do with the information. I contacted Mike (Winchester who is the board attorney).” Notice Hatfield does not say who she had this conversation with or why it came up. Anderson has lived at 1801 River Shores since he was appointed almost two years ago. It has never been a secret. It is well known that Hatfield and Anderson do not see eye to eye. Anderson chairs the board and was doing Hatfield’s evaluation which had not happened previously and is due this month. Anderson had raised numerous issues on minority hirings which he feels Hatfield did not appreciate. Anderson’s term runs to March 31, 2016, and Green’s expires March 31 next year. Many city boards including KUB, the Airport Authority and KCDC do not require residency in the city. Over 40 percent of all city employees live outside the city. Anderson is one of the most informed persons ever to serve on this board and advocates strongly for improved minority hirings in a way few others can do. This problem can be remedied by the city doing

a voluntary annexation of Anderson’s home which is immediately adjacent to the city or asking Rep. Joe Armstrong in the next legislative session to change the law to permit residents of Knox County who have previously worked for the city to be eligible to serve. It is really in Mayor Rogero’s hands on how hard she wishes to overturn this suspicious maneuver from Hatfield who just happened to learn of something which had not been new for two years. This is no way to treat Sam Anderson after years of dedicated service to the people of Knoxville. It is also a test of the current Administration’s commitment to correcting a bad situation. I am convinced Mayor Rogero did not want this to happen. But how will she move to overturn it is the question. ■ A public hearing is 6 p.m. today (June 10) at Sacred Heart Cathedral on Northshore Drive to discuss the future of Lakeshore Park. It’s cohosted by the city and the Lakeshore Foundation Board chaired by Dee Haslam. This is a great opportunity to learn about the future of the park as the state land is transferred to the city, as well as to give input into those plans. Public is invited. ■ Former Knoxville Vice Mayor Mark Brown, now a Knox County General Sessions Court Magistrate, is getting married Aug. 23 in Memphis to Chenile Crenshaw. Crenshaw attended the University of Tennessee with Brown many years ago where they first met. Brown’s first wife, Marcia, died almost three years ago after a lengthy illness. Brown was recently reappointed to a new 4-year term by the Knox County Commission. Brown was a very active and effective City Council member. ■ Court of Criminal Appeals Judge Joseph Tipton of Knoxville has advised Gov. Haslam he will not seek a new term in the August 2014 state judicial election. Under the law, the governor will choose from a list of three names submitted to him by June 30, 2013, before the current nominating commission goes out of business. (The Legislature failed to extend it.) The new appointee will be voted on by all Tennessee voters in August 2014 for an 8-year term commencing Sept. 1, 2014.

We’ve got schools built by the school board through taxes allocated by law to it. The school board owns those keys. We’ve got schools like the new Carter Elementary where Knox County government stepped up and built the facility. Last week Mayor Tim Burchett got the keys from the contractor. When will Burchett hand over the keys to Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre? We’ve got other schools that came to the county from the former city school system. I’m not sure those deeds were ever straightened out. Know why? Because some schools were owned by the city school board and others by the city itself. So some deeds were conveyed to the county while others stayed with

he was tapped to handle the cases against the four defendants, two of whom had to be tried twice when Judge Richard Baumgartner was found guilty of misconduct that tainted the verdicts. Next year, he’d like to succeed Criminal Court Judge Mary Beth Leibowitz, also a Democrat, who was appointed in 1989 by Gov. Ned McWherter and who will step down next year after a distinguished career. Judges serve 8-year terms and tend to stay put until carried out feet-first, so an open seat will probably attract a lot of contenders. Few, however, will have credentials that match Price’s.

He got his law degree in 1996. “I just now paid off my law school loan,” Price said. “I basically mortgaged my brain.” His first job was with a firm in Birmingham, but he quickly decided that he wasn’t in the right place. “I wanted to be a prosecutor and be in a courtroom,” he said. “So I sent my resumé out across the state and Randy Nichols was the one who hired me. Now, looking back on it, it’s like it was meant to be.” A big factor in falling in love with Knoxville was meeting his wife-to-be, Niki Humphreys, a UT student intern in the Knox County Attorney General’s office.

the city. Can you parse ownership at Christenberry Elementary where the school gym is also the city recreation center and the ballfields are probably still mowed by Larry Cox? Commissioner Dave Wright said (paraphrasing) that if it’s a Knox County school then Knox County obviously owns the building. A majority of the school board would disagree. Issues of security, maintenance and even usage cloud the discussion. Traditionally, Election Day voting happened at schools, particularly outside the city limits where public buildings were scarce or nonexistent. A couple of decades ago, the Election Commission requested that schools be closed on Election Day to reduce problems with parking and access. The school system complied. Starting in 2014, the state is requiring 180 days of actual classes. So the school board is trying to tweak the calendar. It makes no sense educationally for schools to close on Election Day, a Tuesday. (By law, the Election Commission can commandeer public buildings and does not have to pay.) Indya Kincannon says schools should not close on

It’s a rare opportunity for voters to enter schools and get a glimpse of what’s happening inside. “The logistics of sharing the space are manageable,” she said, because of early voting. Also, it’s convenient for parents to vote when dropping off their kids. “And we need more parents of school-aged kids to vote.” Board member Doug Harris also wants schools open on Election Day. The issue was so contentious that the board deferred a decision until July. The choices are painful: start school on Friday, Aug. 8; wipe out the Wednesday holiday before Thanksgiving; cut the winter break at Christmas; or extend the school year. Staying open on Election Day has got my vote. After all, schools are safer than ever. We just anted up $1 million for armed guards at every school on every day. This might give them something to do.

Meanwhile, the fuss over ownership will blossom this Thursday when the joint Education Committee of county commission and the school board meets at 4:30 p.m. in the conference room of the Andrew Johnson Building. Here’s betting the school board wants ownership of its buildings; the commissioners want ownership for Knox County; and the law director’s office will side with commissioners.

The Campfield criteria State Sen. Stacey Campfield takes issue with a recent poll of folks under 30 who expressed discomfort with the Republican Party. In the Bloomberg Report, Campfield said, “As for youth polling, young people often say and do things completely different when they actually grow up, get a real job, begin paying taxes and start trying to raise a family.” Campfield’s criteria for adulthood begs the question: When might he be planning to try it?

The master photographer HISTORY AND MYSTERIES | Dr. Jim Tumblin

James E. Thompson (1880-1976) “Not merely were the Thompson pictures used as powerful aids in those early days, but their use and value – and the infinite variety of subject matter – grew with the park movement. It requires no stretch of one’s imagination to realize that without the help of these magnificent views there might have been no national park in the Great Smokies.” Those words are from the definitive history of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Carlos C. Campbell’s “Birth of a National Park in the Great Smoky Mountains” (University of Tennessee Press, 1960). A close look at James Edward “Jim” Thompson’s productive career will show that he was indeed the right person at the right place at the right time. Thompson was born in Morristown on Sept. 25, 1880, the son of C. Mortimer and Hattie Stearns Thompson. When the family moved to Knoxville, Mortimer went to work as a city building inspector. For a time the family lived in Blount Mansion on West Hill Avenue. Jim had completed 4th grade when he quit to go to work, first for his father, and then in order to be out on his own, for a Chattanooga contractor. But he came back to Knoxville to work in drafting for the George F. Barber architectural firm. Young Thompson was an avid amateur photographer and, as a sideline, did

The earliest locations of Thompson Photography Company were in Jim Thompson’s home on Church Street and then on Lowery. The company’s later Snap Shops had several locations in Knoxville and Gatlinburg. Photo courtesy UT Special Collections photo finishing work for his coworkers. For a time he worked for the city’s only photo supply company at the time, the O.C. Wiley Company on Gay Street. Then he set up a darkroom in a bathroom in his home at 711 E. Church St. and, when he needed more room, erected a building in a lot behind the house. His career received a real boost from his now-famous photograph of the audience attending the opening of the Bijou Theatre in 1909. As he stood on the stage of the theater facing the audience with his massive camera, he warned them not to panic when he set off the flash powder he used before flashbulbs were developed. Several other local historic events, such as Gay Street’s Million-Dollar Fire (1897), the Tennessee marble exhibit for the St. Louis World’s Fair (1904) and the New Market Wreck (1904), might never have been photographed except for Thompson’s fore-

sight. He also produced numerous portfolios for the C.B. Atkin Mantel Company, which helped to make it the world’s largest mantel manufacturer. Thompson began photographing in the Smokies as early as 1913, when it required a two-day expedition just to reach the mountains from Knoxville 40 miles away. His heavy view camera required 8x10 inch glass negatives with as many as 50 negative holders and a massive wooden tripod, for a load totaling about 75 pounds. On the rugged trails he usually needed one or more assistants with the attendant difficulty of keeping them nearby to capture scenes when the light was optimal. Early in the 1920s, Thompson became a charter member of the Great Smoky Mountains Hiking Club. He was a close friend and hiking companion to two men who would be highly influential in establishing the national

park, Carlos C. Campbell and Col. David C. Chapman. They were also members of the Smoky Mountain Conservation Association, which was working to influence Congress in its decision to establish the park. Thompson was designated the “official” photographer because he already had a large collection of photographs. A congressional committee met in Asheville, N.C., on July 30, 1924, to discuss the location of the park. Competition was fierce. Among the 30 sites under consideration was North Carolina’s Grandfather Mountain. Chapman was invited to attend and went to Thompson with these instructions: “I want you to put all the pictures you can into the back seat of this car. I want them all put in the room where we meet.” Thompson could barely squeeze his mural-sized photographs into the small room. Although amazed at their beauty, several members thought the colorized photographs of the sweeping vistas were faked and the committee chair decided to postpone the decision until he could see the area personally. Two committee members later journeyed deep into the rugged mountains to see exactly where the photographs were made. They were particularly impressed with the panoramic view from Mt. LeConte’s Myrtle Point and Cliff Top of the Chimney Tops, Clingman’s Dome and Mt. Guyot. The big announcement came on Dec. 13, 1924. The committee, unable to narrow the choice to just one area, recommended the establishment of two new parks: the first in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia (Shenandoah National Park) and the second, and later, the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Much had to be accomplished, including the pur-

chase of the land in the park’s proposed 704,000 acres. The clincher did not occur until March 22, 1927, when Col. W.B. Townsend’s Little River Lumber Company sold its 76,507 acres for $273,557.97 or about $3.50 per acre. North Carolina had paid $9 to $12 per acre for similar land. When Tennessee Gov. Austin Peay received the 151 pages of deeds for the LRLC’s property and when Tennessee’s share of the cost ($183,371.73) was paid, the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park was assured. However, there was still much road and facility work to be done and the park wasn’t chartered by Congress until 1934. President Franklin D. Roosevelt spoke at the formal dedication of the park at Newfound Gap on Sept. 2, 1940. The park remains one of the largest protected areas in the eastern United States and is the most-visited national park. Thompson’s commercial photography business continued to grow with up to 30 employees, many working in the colorization process. Its retail stores, the Snap Shops,

established locations on Gay Street, Clinch Avenue, Peters Road, in Western Plaza and in Gatlinburg. When Gen. Robert Neyland arrived to coach UT football in 1925, he used a rudimentary technique of still photography to enhance his coaching. Jim Thompson was soon brought aboard to film both practices and games and refined the technique, eventually introducing moving pictures. After a long and illustrious career, Thompson passed away at Park West Hospital on March 20, 1976, at age 95. He had a perfect attendance record for 40 years in the Rotary Club, was a charter member of the Smoky Mountains Hiking Club, served several terms as president of the Great Smoky Mountains Conservation Association, was declared a “Master of Photography” by the Photographers Association of America (PAA), served on the PAA board for 12 years and was elected as its president. He was appointed to the National Park and Forest Development Commission by Gov. Frank Clement in 1953. He is interred at Highland Memorial Cemetery.

A-6 • JUNE 10, 2013 • Shopper news It won eight of the first 10. Gene McEver returned the 1928 opening kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown. Tennessee never trailed. Tennessee won, 15-13. That was the beginning of change. There were 40 punts in 1932. Defenses were that good on wet ground. Alabama punted poorly in the fourth quarter. Tennessee won, 7-3. Johnny Butler twice reversed his field on a serpentine 56-yard run, highlight of the 1939 victory. Incidentally, Tennessee opponents failed to score that season. All-American Dick Huffman beat up All-American Harry Gilmer in 1946. Huffman wore orange. Andy Kozar scored the deciding TD in the final minute of 1950. Tide quarterback Snake Stabler threw away the football to stop the clock in 1965 – on fourth down. Bubba Wyche led a sig-

nificant upset of Alabama in 1967. Albert Dorsey intercepted enough passes to become an All-American. In his fifth game as Tennessee coach, Bill Battle, 29, produced a 1970 victory over his mentor, the legendary Paul Bryant. Two years later, Alabama scored two touchdowns in the final 36 seconds and inflicted a crushing defeat. After 11 consecutive losses to Alabama, Mike Terry intercepted a pass in the end zone with 17 seconds left to seal Tennessee’s stunning 35-28 upset. That was 1982. The next year, Johnnie Jones raced 66 yards for a fourthquarter touchdown to again stun the Tide. Blitzing linebacker Dale Jones made one of the great plays in Tennessee history to save the 1985 triumph. In 1990, in a sudden reversal, Alabama blocked

a winning field goal at one end and kicked a winning field goal at the other. The Tide went 8-0-1 between 1986 and 1994. Tennessee won nine of 10 between 1995 and 2004. Peyton Manning and Joey Kent started that streak with an 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play. Jay Graham made the big play the next season. Peerless Price returned a kickoff 100 yards in ’98. That was a good year. It took five overtimes but Casey Clausen led the Vols to victory in 2003. With 13 seconds remaining, Alabama won with a field goal in 2005. This stuff is tradition. Memories are priceless. Not much has happened lately but things will change. Nick Saban said Tennessee now has a coach.

In the first chapter of Genesis, there is the account of the creation of the universe: light, then the heavens and the earth. In the second chapter of Genesis, we have the account of how God creCross Currents ated Adam, forming him out of the dust of the ground, and Lynn then Eve. Hutton And it is in that second chapter that we find a process. God did not wave a magic wand and create a I think of as Souls have a ra- puppet.

That, my friends, is how I Once I learned how to read understand the theory of evothe Bible, I was intrigued by lution. All of God’s creation the order of things in Eden. was a process, in stages, over

time, in large chunks of time – eons and eons of time. (As one pastor explained it to me, “’In the beginning, God….’ Everything else is methodology!”) My point is this, however: Adam was created a man; he became a soul through the blessing of God’s own breath. I sometimes think of this in terms of childbirth. A baby is born from a water environment, and has to have his mouth suctioned out by the doctor to clear the airways. It is at that moment that the baby is able to scream his indignation at being pushed from his dark, warm, cozy, floating environment into a world where gravity makes him feel that

he is falling. As an additional insult, his body is cold for the very first time. He finds that crying feels pretty good, and he keeps at it until he is bundled in warm blankets and handed back to his mom, and his rosebud mouth finds its first meal. Almost none of his potential abilities work yet. He has to learn to suckle and sleep and grow. He has to learn to walk and talk. He has to learn to love and forgive. He has a lot of learning to do. He has to become a soul. It won’t always be easy. He will mess up. He will forget. He will get hurt. He will grow. He will become. Just like Adam. Just like all of us.

Too much Alabama talk Considering that they don’t play until late October, there sure is a lot of chatter about Tennessee-Alabama football. Can you believe there are people running loose in the neighborhood who want to end this relationship after just 112 years? And they claim to be fans. I say they need professional help and maybe guide dogs. College football is or was based on rivalries. Geographic proximity was the original concept of conferences.

Discover Grace, discover community By Theresa Edwards Each month, Grace Baptist Church offers a free lunch and “Discover Grace” class to introduce newcomers to the staff and the church’s beliefs.

Executive pastor Stacey Bearden leads the “Discover Grace” class to introduce newcomers to the church.

Grace views the church as a family, brothers and sisters in the Lord. “The church is here to help meet the needs of its family ... physically, emotionally, spiritually, monetarily, whatever it may be,” said senior pastor Ron Stewart. “A Christian without a church family is a spiritual orphan,” he said. “A lot of Christians are not members of a church, but it’s a lot harder. It’s a lot easier to have a family to lean on in times of trouble.” The church is also a place where members can use their talents to serve one another. “Some people think a large church would not have a place for new members to serve,” said executive pastor Stacey Bearden. “But a large church needs more volunteers. “It takes 150 volunteers every Sunday to minister

More than 286 volunteers make up Grace’s choir, instrumental and media teams. Photos by T. Edwards Grace home groups through a fun, unique and interactive way. The goal is to connect each member with a home group community to continue

Christ’s call to love their neighbors, but he was surprised to find that the church as a whole was not a significant player in the city’s development. He wanted that to change. Challenging leaders with the information he found, Rittenhouse envisioned a new collaboration to look at Knoxville’s problems. From this, the Compassion Coalition was born. The coalition is a group of Christian believers who are committed to being what Matthew 5:13-16 would call “salt and light” in their community. Their aim is to address the brokenness of the city and to mobilize Christians in the church to help. “This growing coalition of believers in Jesus reflects the loving, serving presence of Christ among those who are suffering The Rittenhouse family (front) Eli, Paige, Andy, Josiah; (back) Johah, Caleb, Micah, Hadassah and and marginalized,” executive director Grant StandNoah. efer explains in “Salt and Light.” Rittenhouse. “We were He wanted to help them, just nity’s needs and eventually The Coalition now inhomeless and had no mon- as he was freely given help. write “Salt and Light.” cludes nearly 200 congreThese experiences proWhile researching the gations which are being ey, but because of the interjection of these ‘Jesus vided his motivation to look book, Rittenhouse found equipped to serve their people,’ my life was put on at the Knoxville commu- many people following community. a different path.” Other impacts shaping his life include his experiences as a volunteer at a maximum security state prison. “It grabbed my heart,” Rittenhouse says. He knew that many of those people were hurting, just like he was that summer in Texas.

“We’ve been working on tools for churches to look outward,” says Rittenhouse. “I went out to investigate my city, so that I could help mobilize the body to get out in Jesus’ name.” The book, now in its third edition, has two main parts. The first part casts a vision for people to reach out and get involved in helping their city. The 28 chapters cover various areas of life in Knoxville and allow the reader to walk in the shoes of a person being affected by certain issues. It shares stories of hope, facts and statistics, and a biblical vision for helping the needy. The second part focuses on equipping the church to be “salt and light” in Knoxville. This section helps congregations understand that they have a specific role to play in different pockets of the city. It also builds a case for churches to work together as partners.

Paying it forward

Andy Rittenhouse wants to return blessings he received By Ashley Baker Andy Rittenhouse, pastor of domestic missions at First Baptist Concord, wants to make a difference in Knoxville. After doing extensive research documenting the social needs here, Rittenhouse compiled a book called “Salt and Light: A Guide to Loving Knoxville,” which has become a Christian’s guide to loving Knoxville well. Rittenhouse’s research and ministry were born out of the fact that he once was in great need himself. He says when someone showed him the love of Jesus, his life was forever changed. “My story is that my parents divorced when I was a freshman in high school,” Rittenhouse says. That event caused a turn for the worse. Rittenhouse, his mother and his two siblings lived out of a 1977 Chevy Impala in the Texas summer heat. It was then that Rittenhouse’s family moved to Tennessee and received help from a group of concerned Christians. They raised money for the family to get an apartment and for Rittenhouse and his two siblings to go to school at Harrison Chilhowee Baptist Academy in Seymour. “I was a statistic,” says

interns Meet the 2013 Shopper News interns Roxanne Abernathy is a home-schooled 8thgrader. She hopes to be productive during this summer’s intern program and learn new things about Knoxville. Her two passions in life are acting and writing, with an emphasis on the acting. Laura Beeler will begin the 9th grade at Halls High School in August. She wanted to participate in the Shopper News intern program because “there were a lot of great people to meet and places to go on the itinerary.” She said it will inspire her to “look more deeply into specific degrees and jobs.” Her three main interests are photography, soccer and piano. After high school, Laura plans to study pre-law at the University of Tennessee. Jackson Brantley, a 9th grade student at Union County High School, has a busy summer planned. In addition to participating in the intern program, Jackson will attend a couple of basketball camps. Visiting the Sunsphere high above the city is on the top of his list of things to do. After high school he wants to become an engineer. Paul Brooks will head to South-Doyle High School in August as a 9th-grader. During his time as an intern, he is most looking forward to “taking pictures and getting to know people of our great city.” Gibson Calfee will be a 9th grade student at Union County High School. He enjoys playing soccer and hopes to go into the medical profession after high school. While working with the intern program, Gibson is excited to get the opportunity to visit

the Sunsphere in downtown Knoxville. Sarah Dixon, a 10th-grader at Halls High School, is a secondyear intern. “Being back at the Shopper has really sparked a desire to pursue my dreams,” said Sarah. “I love the staff’s enthusiasm, and I have so much to learn from Sandra in the field of politics. I am excited to spend my summer with such amazing people,” she said. Sarah enjoys playing in her school’s marching band and in the drum line. She is also a madrigal singer. Joshua Mode is a sophomore at Halls High School. His goal as a Shopper intern is to “have fun and explore news stories throughout our vast community.” Zoe Risley is a rising 8th-grader at Vine Middle School. She hopes to meet new and interesting people this summer during her internship and share “cool” information with Shopper readers. Her favorite pastimes are acting and singing. Lindsey Sanders, a 7th grade student at Halls Middle, joined the Shopper intern program to meet new people, become a better photographer and to have fun. She enjoys swimming, photography, camping and being outside. She would like a career as a photographer, animal rescuer or swimmer. Taylor Smith is a rising 9th-grader at SouthDoyle. She is most looking forward to new experiences during her internship. She plans to become a pediatric oncologist someday.

‘So you want to be a reporter?’ This summer’s Shopper News summer intern program kicked off last week with a tour of the big press at the Knoxville News Sentinel, lunch at the legendary Litton’s restaurant, a stop at Fountain City Art

Center and Fountain City Park, and a visit to Cumulus Media’s studios in Bearden. The interns wrote about their experiences with some guidance from Shopper staff.

Schmidt said the expression “Watch your Ps and Qs” came from early typesetting when letters were placed in a tray backwards and upside down. If the typesetter were not paying attention, the Ps and Qs could be switched. Pre-press includes a room of computers and staff checking and re-checking files for

specifications that include correct color and page layout. Some of the publications printed on the press include The Oak Ridger, Farragut Press and Grainger Today in addition to Metro Pulse and, of course, the Shopper News. The seven-story-high press is 974 metric tons of printing power that can produce 70,000 copies per hour. The first of its kind in the United States, it is known for mostly troublefree production. Intern Laura Beeler was shocked by the noise it produced and noted the press operators working with ear protectors.

came along and suggested to Sandra Clark that if she kept looking, she might find her birthday on one of those pages. She was looking at 1926 at the time!

Lunch at Litton’s The interns were treated to lunch at Fountain City’s famed Litton’s restaurant. Cheeseburgers, chicken tenders and a few salads were among intern fare. Erik Litton, a 4th-generation restaurateur, made sure the interns had everything they needed for the best lunch around. Chocolatechip cookies served for dessert would have been more appropriately named “chocolate chunk cookies,” according to intern Joshua Mode. The students from Erik Litton greets the interns while they enjoy lunch at Litton’s South Knoxville had never in Fountain City.

license so I can bring my little brother here,” said intern Paul Brooks. After lunch, reporters Sandra Clark and Jake Mabe talked about the newspaper “bidness.” Mabe said when it is time to choose a career, they should choose to do something that they love. “If you love what you do,” he said, “you’ll never work a day in your life.” Mabe said to always “tell me a story,” and Clark said a firing offense is spelling someone’s name incorrectly. Don’t worry. No intern has yet been fired.

In addition to their internship with the Shopper News, interns Zoe Risley and Roxanne Abernathy are looking forward to acting in a new location this summer. Children’s Theatre of Knoxville has moved to its new location at 109 East Churchwell Avenue. Roxanne said the previous location was like “a ga-

rage next to a graveyard.” The young thespians say the move to a larger space will give more kids a chance to try acting. Zoe will perform in the theater group’s first performance at the new facility. “Babe, the Sheep-Pig” will be performed through Saturday, June 22.

Fountain City Art Center By Paul Brooks The Shopper News interns stopped by the Founta in City Art Center after lunch and spoke with its d i r e c tor, S ylv ia Williams. Sylvia Williams The center was opened in 2004 in the former library on the

edge of Fountain City Park. It is now a place where artists can come and share their work. “It is a peaceful place to think,” said Shopper News photographer Ruth White of the viewing areas set up with comfortable sofas and chairs. “The center is a way to encourage artists and give them a venue to sell their stuff,” said publisher Sandra Clark. Williams said it takes

five fundraisersa year to keep the art center open. In addition to exhibiting art of both local artists and students, FCAC hosts musicians, holds classes for both children and adults, and houses the Parkside Open Door Gallery, where artists can sell their wares while helping the center in the process.

The awareness ribbon By Joshua Mode When I walked into the lovely building called the Fountain City Art Center, I was stunned at all the beautiful paintings. I was also stunned that it was not just a place to showcase art; it was also a learning center for students who wanted to improve their art skills. Later when we got to walk around to see the art, I studied each piece to see which one spoke to me the most. The art was extravagant, big and small, plus sculptures and even jewelry, but

none really told a story. So I searched for something that did. Later, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a piece of artwork at the edge of the room. It was a pink metal sculpture in the shape of an awareness ribbon, so I wondered what story this might have. Maybe the artist had suffered a heartbreaking loss, sadness or struggle. The artist was Frank Harvey, and I couldn’t help but wonder if he had lost someone to breast cancer. As I walked away, I saw yet another of his works

that was also an awareness ribbon, but this one was blue instead of pink. So now I not only see that this artist might have witnessed someone get diagnosed with breast cancer, but also prostate cancer. And as I felt the pain through the art, I can only hope that the artist made this piece to salute those who have suffered instead of a personal piece about what he went through. And that is what I found as my “speaking” art piece at the Fountain City Art Center.

Eric “T-Bone” Gusky let the interns hear the magic of mixing sound for commercials, and how the soundtrack for a script can make a world of difference. Echoing Jake Mabe’s thoughts from earlier in the day, Gusky said he would rather do what he loved than make a fortune doing something he didn’t. “Just don’t take my picture,” he said. The trip to Cumulus wouldn’t have been complete without stopping by the Phil Show with legendary disc jockey Phil Williams at the mic. The interns went live on the radio, but only after texting parents, grandparents and friends to drum up a crowd, adding numbers to the Phil Show’s ratings. Gibson Calfee remembers Williams saying his first job was in auto repair but he’s been in radio for 30 years. “He wanted to play his band on the radio, and that’s why he chose his job,” said Gibson. Most of the interns remembered Williams saying his favorite story is the “Idiot of the Day.” On our way back home, we tuned in the Phil Show. Sure enough, he was reading “Idiot of the Day,” this time about a family that raised a baby deer for five years and then had to release it to the wild after a neighbor complained. “Two words,” said Phil. “Petting Zoo.” Lindsey Sanders also quoted Williams as saying his favorite part of his job “is payday and lunch.” Williams snookered Lindsey when she asked how long he had worked in radio. “I was hired by a gentleman named Marconi,” said Phil. The interns seriously wrote the quote into their reporters pads. Marconi is generally credited with inventing radio, back in the late 1800s. Paul Brooks fell victim to Williams’ off-beat humor. When Paul said he’s in training for the ministry, Phil asked when he first felt God’s call. “I was in 4th grade,” said Paul. Then he added, “but like Jonah, I ran away from God.” “You were swallowed by a whale!” asked Phil.

Undeterred, Paul kept talking in his best preacher’s voice. He commandeered Williams’ microphone for about a minute of testimony. Next week … The interns will “Walk on the East Side” with visits to the Beck Cultural Center and the new aviary at Knoxville Zoo, making time for lunch at Chandler’s on Magnolia.

What if you were the one to decide what stories were shared on the radio? That’s exactly what Cumulus Knoxville news director Catherine Howell does. Howell uses police scanners along with other sources to learn about stories going on locally and nationally to broadcast what people want to hear. She says she wants to alert people of things going on in their community that could affect them and future generations. Howell also says that she enjoys taking things that are mildly interesting and finding the details that stick out. She has been working as a news director for eight years.

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers

Technology is big boost for Corryton By Jake Mabe Emma Patterson was in her classroom when she heard the news. Luke Warwick was sick at home, but the news made him feel a whole lot better. Principal Jamie Snyder was watching the live feed of the results with 5th grade students. “I think I felt the school shake,” Snyder says. The school is Corryton Elementary. And the news was that the school had successfully applied through the School Technology Challenge to be one of 11 Knox County schools that will receive a 1:1 wireless connection and personal learning devices, which will be piloted during the 2013-14 school year. Emma, 9, is a rising 4th-grader. Luke, 10, is a rising 5th-grader. Both helped deliver Corryton’s sales pitch to the committee that decided which schools would receive the technology. “They were much calmer than the adults that were presenting,” Snyder says. “It was a lot of hard work. We had to put that presentation together in two days. And these folks,” she said, pointing to Emma and Luke, “helped us with their hard work.” Luke talked about a robotics grant that the school had received and said the robot helped him and his classmates learn about geometry and science. “We had to build the robot, so we really had to follow the instructions,” Luke says. Emma told the committee why she thought the school needed the technology. “We’re already using it at home for entertainment. We can use it for learning.” “It’s a different way to learn and a fun way to learn,” Luke says. “It will ultimately allow us to connect learning in a very different way for kids,” Snyder says. “The standards we are teaching won’t change, but the way we present the learning will change.” Snyder adds that children learn in different ways. Some enjoy flipping pages in a book. Others like the quick pace of an ebook. The new technology will allow teachers to tailor instruction to each student’s individual needs. “We can do both!” Luke said. Snyder and other Corryton Elementary staff members attended a weeklong professional development initiative at Bearden High School last week. “This whole week has been, ‘How do we do it?’ Our kids know more than we do. We have to figure out how to blend it (into the curriculum) and what that looks like as a presentation in front of the classroom. We’re going to be learning side by side. The kids

Corryton Elementary School rising 5th-grader Luke Warwick, principal Jamie Snyder and rising 4th-grader Emma Patterson work on a couple of e-devices. Corryton is one of 11 Knox County schools chosen through the School Technology Challenge to pilot new technology. Snyder and other Corryton staff members attended a week-long professional development initiative at Bearden High last week. Luke and Emma helped deliver the school’s sales pitch during the Challenge earlier this year. Photos by Jake Mabe will tell us what they need and we can show them the pathways to make that happen.” Snyder says as an administrator she was excited last week to watch how excited her teachers became during the training sessions. “These folks are amazing. They are willing to take on anything that comes their way.” Last week’s session focused on the philosophy and theory of teaching through connectivity, Snyder said. “At a follow-up in late July/early August, we will hopefully know what (electronic) device has been selected and figure out how to make it work in the classroom.” Snyder said participants got a preview last week. “They showed us one whole day of a paradigm change and what it’s going to feel like because it is new. And we’re going to make mistakes. That’s

Emma Patterson shows her technological skills on an iPad.

OK. We’ll learn from our mistakes and move forward.” She says it’s particularly exciting for a small school like Corryton to receive not only the new technology, but two full-time staff positions as well. “We’re a school with 200 kids. We don’t get full-time positions other than our regular faculty. So to get a

tech position and a (TPACK coach), that’s worth its weight in gold for us as a community and as a school.” Snyder says the school will continue to communicate with parents through phone calls, newsletters and the school website. “But we’re also going to be tweeting at @corrytonelem. And we’ll be honest. We’ll post our mistakes.”

Coffee Break

when I was 14. My sister was going to take the test to get her learner’s permit. I was so cocky that I decided I would just go, too, and take the test so I could ride the bike legally on the streets. No studying. She passed hers, and I failed.

What are the top three things on your bucket list? Attend a Super Bowl game. Sleep in the White House in the Lincoln bedroom. Visit the World War II site in Normandy.

What is one word others often use to describe you? I think most would say I’m “driven.� I am prone to be intense.

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


I would like to be more patient.

Rep. Jimmy Matlock

What is your passion? Customer service.

With whom, living or dead, would you most like to have a long lunch?

A third generation Matlock is starting his career, and his second-generation father couldn’t be happier. Joe Matlock, who is named after his grandfather who started Matlock Tire Service and Auto Repair, is at the Farragut store. While Joe stays at the Farragut store, his father, Jimmy, who is also the state representative from District 21, says he is a “substitute for the substitutes,� traveling to all four stores and the new wholesale auto parts store that his wife, Dean, is managing. “I am gone five months out of the year with the Legislature in Nashville,� says Jimmy. “When they get me back to this world, I go where they tell me I’m needed.� Jimmy is in his 7th year as a state rep, and even his desire to jump into that political world is based on the family’s legacy of business. “Like so many, I was frustrated with the whole process,� says Jimmy of state politics. “I have been very active in other candidates’ campaigns, so I had a little inkling of what I was getting into. What made me really want to serve, however, was that I just didn’t feel small businesses were well represented in the state political arena. I thought I could bring that perspective.� It is perspective he learned at his father’s knee and was thrust into full-force before he was really ready. “I was 23 and finishing college when my father died suddenly of a heart attack. I finished at UT while working at the store. My mother, who was my father’s partner from the beginning, stayed for 10 years before she retired. She was the key. She helped run the business and raised four children.� His father started with an Esso service station in 1953 at Eaton’s Crossroad on Hwy. 70 in Lenoir City. When the interstate took all the traffic away from his storefront, he moved across the street and opened a tire store. The first store in Farragut was near Stonecrest subdivision. The Lone Star Texaco was the landmark.� Jimmy says any success the company has seen is because of the staff. “I know it sounds like something people just say, but here, it’s absolutely true. We are a family, and we all believe in giving good customer service and making sure things are done the right way. The faces our cus-

Ronald Reagan. I am a true fan of President Reagan and consider him to have been a great statesman. tomers see in the stores today are often the same faces they saw when they came with their fathers. I have seven employees who have been with us for 28 years, and five of those seven have been here over 35 years. When I say we are family-operated, it includes them.� Small businesses today face many challenges, says Jimmy. “Mega corporations are coming in with low margins, high volume and limited service and forcing small, locally-owned businesses out. They change the dynamics of the market. That is why we continue to focus on quality, good customer service and supporting the community. We use about 40 percent of our marketing budget for public relations – which means things like supporting the local sports teams and doing things that touch people locally.� His and Dean’s “home� family include Joe, who is 24 and graduated from the University of Tennessee with a degree in finance; daughter Lindsay, 26, who is a lobbyist in Washington, D.C.; and son Reagan, 19, who will start at UT in August. Sit for a Coffee Break as you get to know Jimmy Matlock:

What is your favorite quote from television show or movie? “You can’t handle the truth.� – From “A Few Good Men.�

Other than your parents, who has had the biggest influence on your life and why? Ted Wampler of Wampler’s Sausage. He has been a personal and professional mentor who stepped in when my father died. He has meant a lot to my life.

I still can’t quite get the hang of ‌ The remote control.

What is the best present you ever received in a box? The best was Christmas 2012 when I received my son Reagan’s Christian Academy of Knoxville state championship football helmet.

What is the best advice your mother ever gave you? She told me to always tithe 10 percent.

What is your social media of choice? Letter writing.

What is the worst job you have ever had? The only job I have ever had is my current career, which I love.

What irritates you? Laziness.

What are you guilty of?

What’s one place in Farragut everyone should visit?

Occasionally falling asleep during church.

Everyone should come see us at Matlock Tire Service.

What is your favorite material possession? I have my great-grandfather’s pocket watch that was actually given to me by my mother.

What is your greatest fear? Failure.

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

What are you reading currently?

I would buy a motorcycle!

Forget about that steak dinner. Breakfast and lunch will take center stage with the debut of First Watch, a restaurant that serves only breakfast, brunch and lunch. The restaurant will open in Turkey Creek near Publix this fall. The interior of First Watch is designed to take advantage of natural light.

Capstone currently owns and operates restaurants in Tennessee, North Carolina and Kentucky. In Knoxville, Capstone operates three Mr. Gatti’s. James Geib, chief operating officer for Capstone, says plans are to eventually have four restaurants in Knoxville, with the next two located in North Knox and then Bearden. Each will employ about 25 people. “We’re excited about offering people in Knoxville a great new dining choice in

Businesses could revamp work force to deal with ‘Obamacare’ By Sherri Gardner Howell Businesses may look a lot different in the next few years from what they do today because of changes they will make to deal with the Affordable Care Act. Or maybe not. Therein lies the main problem with what most call “Obamacare,” human resource manager Ashley Doss told members of the Rotary Club of Farragut Wednesday. Doss is with Summit View Health Management and her topic for the Rotarians was “Health Care Reform.” It is the club’s third presentation on health issues this year. Doss explained that the Affordable Health Care Act is really a combination of two acts passed by Congress: the Patient Protection and Affordable Care Act and the Health Care and Education Affordability Reconciliation Act, both signed into law in March 2010. The goals, she said, are to strengthen consumer rights and protections, make coverage more affordable, increase access to care and strengthen Medicare. The problem for businesses, especially those with more than 50 employees, is that answers on just what this new world will look like are slow in coming. “Businesses are trying to make decisions and put

Photo by Sherri Gardner Howell things into place but can’t find out what the acceptable employee plans will look like,” says Dodd. “The Exchange, where eligible Americans may buy health insurance through an online marketplace and shop and compare what is best for their families, is supposed to be operational

by October 2013. I think it will be delayed.” The Employer Mandate is scheduled to take effect Jan. 1, 2014, but business owners still can’t get an indication from the government on what will constitute “affordable” coverage and “minimum value,” says Doss. “Employers with 50 or more full-time employees or equivalents have to offer ‘affordable’ coverage where employee contributions are less than 9.5 percent of their income, and they must provide ‘minimum value’ coverage that pays for 60 percent of the costs of covered health services. They also must cover substantially all full-time employees – those working 30 or more hours on average per month – and their dependent children.” There are also options and penalties, and employers can decide whether to “pay or play.” “A lot of companies are reducing employee hours to 29 or less so that they fall under the full-time status,” says Doss. “I think what is going to happen is that we are creating a parttime work force where the majority of people will be working below the 30-hour minimum. Management will keep full-time status and keep benefits while everyone else will be parttime.”

Double mastectomy eases sports writer’s cancer worry It was a lump that wasn’t there two weeks before. Knoxville sports writer Maria Cornelius was stunned when she felt a knot in her right breast one Sunday in December. “The lump definitely wasn’t there two weeks earlier when I had a checkup with my physician,� she remembers. “I was shocked.� Cornelius, who because of a family history of cancer had always been vigilant about performing regular self-breast exam, immediately made an appointment to have the lump evaluated. A mammogram showed abnormal results. Then, a needle biopsy revealed that the spot in her breast was, indeed, cancerous. “Within two weeks my life completely changed,� says Cornelius. Her physician referred her to Dr. Lytle Brown of Premier Surgical Associates at Parkwest Medical Center. Dr. Brown has performed breast cancer surgeries for more than 20 years. “I did a lot of research and it was important to me to have an experienced surgeon,� explains Cornelius. “Research shows that your chance of recurrence

decreases tremendously with a more experienced surgeon.� Dr. Brown carefully explained her surgical options. “He was very thorough and wrote everything out and even drew diagrams,� says Cornelius. She chose to undergo a double mastectomy, removal of both breasts. “For me, it was the fear factor that I would be constantly checking the other breast for cancer,� she says. “Once I chose to eliminate that daily worry, I never wavered in my decision.� C or nel iu s’ surgery was successf ully performed in February. She admits that getting used to her post-surgery body has been an adjustment. “At my age of 50, I opted not to do reconstruction,� she says. “It is different. The first time you see yourself in the mirror, you see the scars and an oddlooking chest. Other cancer survivors had warned me: be prepared for that first moment.�

Cornelius, who has healed and is back at work, has advice for other women facing a breast cancer diagnosis. “Take time to grieve and be angry, and do whatever you need to do. But, then, you’ve got to get up and keep going.� She says seek help and support before and after your diagnosis. “Don’t go through this alone. Let others help you,� she advises. “Reach out to people and you’ll be amazed at how many fellow breast cancer survivors there are.� And, Cornelius stresses the importance of regular breast self-exams. “I’m the poster child for early detection,� she smiles. “Don’t ignore changes in your health like weight loss or pain. Don’t wait. If I had ignored it, this tumor would’ve just grown and grown.� For more information or physician referral, visit or call 865-374-PARK.

“Once I chose to eliminate that daily worry, I never wavered in my decision.� – Maria Cornelius, breast cancer survivor

Sports writer Maria Cornelius credits early detection as the key in her battle against breast cancer. She was quickly back on the sidelines interviewing athletes following her double mastectomy.

Partial vs. full mastectomy? Personal preference is key consideration Approximately 75 percent of patients diagnosed with early stage breast cancer are candidates for either mastectomy or breast-conserving surgery (also called a partial mastectomy or lumpectomy). Mastectomy is the removal of the entire breast, while breast-conserving surgery removes the cancerous tumor and part of the surrounding breast tissue. Breast-conserving surgery is usually followed by radiation Surgeon Lytle Brown IV, MD, FACS therapy. Studies have long Dr. Brown says many shown that a patient’s survival outcome is simi- patients who don’t wish to lar whether you undergo a go through weeks of radiafull or partial mastectomy. tion and repeated follow-up That’s why it’s important to scans, may opt for full masinclude your personal well- tectomy.

At the end of the they get a physical exam,� day, it’s what you are go- explains Dr. Brown. “They ing to be most comfortable want to eliminate that fear on the front end.� with.�

Dr. Brown says younger women with an early stage tumor, often opt for a partial mastectomy. “Some are thrilled that they don’t have to have their whole breast removed.� And techniques for breast reconstruction have never been better. Breast implants are more safe and comfortable. Or new breasts may be constructed by using fat from the patient’s stomach, back, buttock or thigh. Dr. Brown advises every patient to talk openly with her surgeon to determine which option will best suit her individual health, lifestyle and personal preference. And, it’s critical that women be proactive about their breast health by performing regular self-exams and quickly seeking medical attention for any suspicious lumps. “The bottom line is: breast cancer is all about stage,� states Dr. Brown. “Women who are diagnosed in an early stage do much better. The best thing is early detection. � For more information or physician referral, visit www.TreatedWell. com or call 865-374PARK.

‘Beach-front property’ in Powell By Cindy Taylor Just over the train tracks on Beaver Creek Drive is something you don’t see every day in East Tennessee – a full-on beach complete with a Tiki bar. It all started when Carole Chaffins asked her son, “What are you going to do with that big hole in the front yard?” If you are Bill Chaffins Jr. you turn that hole, and then the entire front yard, into a beach. “The beach wasn’t here, so I had to make it,” said Bill as he whipped up a batch of barracuda margaritas. “We have a lot of fun with strangers just dropping in.” Chaffins says the challenge was being able to make the beach look like it should be there. He started with a small area and a couple of chairs. Then, he made a trip to the beach for the dune fence, added banana and palm trees, and the construction grew from there. He and his family have been working on the property both indoors and out for more than a year. Some of the décor has come from as far away as Australia and Fiji. Chaffins and his wife, Barbara, got married on their private beach, but it was much smaller. The wedding at the Tiki bar went long into the evening with guests who were having too much fun to leave.

‘Beach-front property’

From page 1

Barbara’s daughter, Becky Ragan, is home on leave from the U.S. Navy for a few days. She says her military friends don’t believe her when she tells them about home. “I always have to show them pictures to prove it,” she said. The bar is equipped with everything the family needs to party through the day and into the night. There is a cooktop, two fridges, a sink, a freezer, a searing burner and grill and of course, a stereo. Beach and retro décor abound in every corner and exotic plants cover the grounds. More than five tons of sand runs from one end of the beach to the other with a few tons of river rock thrown in. “We grill out almost every day here in the Tiki bar,” said Bill. “We love it when people drive by and shout ‘hello.’ A lot of them stop to take pictures and end up staying a bit. Any time we call and say we’re grilling fish tacos, the neighbors are quick to come over. Life is very laid-back here.” The entire yard is a work in progress. The interior of the home has been completely redone as well. “It is a never-ending project,” said Barbara. Bill says he can play in the mountains in the backyard and then walk around front to rest on the beach. It is truly the best of both worlds. But how often does a train come by? Lounging at the Tiki bar with a margarita in hand, banana and palm trees swaying, and the sounds of Jimmy Buffett wafting on the breeze, does it really matter?

The Chaffins enjoy the shade and statuary of the back yard. The sculpture pictured was uncovered in a field in Galveston, Texas.

A sign at the road welcomes visitors to Beaver Bay Beach.

The beach retreat started with only a few chairs and a little sand. Photos by Cindy Taylor A crocodile stands guard at the gate to the beach.

coolers with freezer gel packs. Food needs to be stored at 40 F or colder to reduce the risk of pathogen growth, so limit the number of times you open the cooler. Never allow food to sit for more than two hours at temperatures below 90 F, and no more than an hour when temperatures exceed 90 F. Throw away food that’s been sitting out too long. Securely package raw meat, seafood and poultry to ensure the juices don’t contami-

nate other foods. Pack only the amount of perishable food that you think will be eaten. Beverages and perishable foods should travel in separate containers and coolers, especially if you’ll be transporting raw meat. When it’s time to go home, don’t reuse packaging material that has touched raw meats or meat juices. Make sure perishable leftovers stay cold on the trip home. Avoid taking home uncooked leftovers. – BPT

If you’re in your 40s

Years of sun exposure can leave your skin with noticeable lines, blotchiness or dryness. ■ Limit exposure: Decreasing sun exposure is the best way to prevent skin cancer. ■ Moisturize regularly: While moisturizers won’t slow down the aging process, they can help soothe increasingly raw or irritated skin and can help strengthen collagen. ■ Add a little pep: Skin creams with peptides (small chains of protein molecules) can stimulate collagen and plump sagging skin.

If you’re 50-plus

For people age 50 and older, it’s critical to be aware of changes in your skin that may reflect the status of its health. ■ Self check: Monitor changes in your skin and look out for persistent pink, scaly patches and red or

black pearly spots or bumps – these can sometimes be indicators of skin cancer. ■ See a dermatologist: By age 50, everyone should have a total body skin check to screen for skin cancer. ■ Continue good habits: Sunscreen is still an absolute must for this age range, and moisturizers and hydration are even more important than ever. No matter what your age, everyone feels most confident when their skin is its healthiest. Visit your doctor or take advantage of free counsel from pharmacists and local health screenings. For example, Sam’s Club hosts health screenings every month which are free and available to the public. For a full schedule of Sam’s Club screenings through October, visit This season, take action to prevent and minimize skin damage, so your skin is nourished, protected and healthy for many summers to come. – BPT
