Church of Christ expands By Theresa Edwards

Hardin Valley Church of Christ is expanding its building by 20,300 square feet, adding 14 classrooms, mostly for the younger children, to accommodate its rapid growth. Leaders expect Larry Cline the building to be completed around April 2013. “We’re excited because this church from the very beginning has had a great love for this community and especially the young people,” said evangelist Larry Cline.” Having this new facility will allow us to increase our ministry in a tremendous way to reach out and meet the needs of families within the Hardin Valley area. “We are excited that God has opened this door and allowed us to have this great tool that will be an incredible gift to this ministry.” The church began in May 2006 with 160 people attending the first service, held at the Y behind Walgreens at Lovell Road and Kingston Pike. The congregation met there only once, moving to Hardin Valley Elementary School for about two years.

With about 450 now attending, coordinating deacon Charles Sells says the congregation has “grown fairly rapidly. “We have been blessed beyond our wildest imagination. God has

really put an opportunity in front of us. We are doing a lot of outreach efforts to help the community.” The church invites the community to its fall festival Saturday, Oct. 27. There will be

jump houses and games for the kids along with a chili cook-off and hot dogs at 5 p.m. followed by trunk-or-treat at 6. The church is located at 11515 Hardin Valley Road, west of Food City.

Additionally, MPC received no incremental funds for the increased work load generated by the Hillside and Ridgetop Protection Plan, a 3-year undertaking authorized by a joint vote of County Commission and City Council. This project was concurrent with the recession that torpedoed development and further depressed MPC’s fee structure. “We had 44 people on staff five years ago. Today, we’ve got 36,” he said, explaining that his staff is having a hard time keeping up with its responsibility to update countywide addresses and the Knox County Geographic Information System and is not able to service developers’ permit and

Larry Smith, a former MPC commissioner, said was plenty. He took the merciless role of Mr. Bumble to Donaldson’s Twist, advising the MPC chief that, “We’re not doing much business. We just need to trim our budget back.” The MPC request went down by a 5-3-1 vote – it needed six – with Sam McKenzie, Amy Broyles, Mike Brown, Ed Shouse and Tony Norman voting yes. Smith, Jeff Ownby and Mike Hammond voted no. Dave Wright passed. Richard Briggs and Brad Anders were absent.

Dee Childress

Dee Childress is the head cashier at Hardin Valley Food City and loves being a part of the community events hosted there. Dee invites the community to Food City shopping center’s trunk-or-treat 6-7:30 p.m. Thursday, Oct. 25. Local businesses are welcome to join and hand out treats from their car. There will also be a costume contest inside the store. Away from work, Dee loves spending time with her family and friends. “Family is really important to me,” she said. Dee has two daughters, a son and four wonderful granddaughters, ages 7, 5, 2 and 1. Her daughter and granddaughters live in Texas, where Dee is from. “We don’t get to see each other enough, but we do talk on the telephone a lot,” she said. “We say, ‘I miss you but I’ll see you in my dreams,’ and that keeps us going. They are wonderful.” “I like going bowling from time to time and I enjoy hanging out at the lake watching the water,” Dee said. She enjoys boating or fishing, as long as she doesn’t have to get in the water. Sit and have a Coffee Break as you get to know Dee Childress:

What are you guilty of? I am probably guilty of wanting to be better all the time. I am guilty of wanting to be a fixer and fi x things.

What is your favorite material possession? My shoes.

What are you reading currently? “Fifty Shades of Grey.”

What was your most embarrassing moment? It’s probably once when I stepped off a bus and my slip fell to the floor.

What are the top three things on your bucket list?

I am a take-over person, one who likes to be in charge. Let’s get something started and go for it.

If you could change one thing about yourself, what would it be? I would change the way I think sometimes.

What is your passion? My passion is spending time with my granddaughters and talking with them on the phone.

With whom, living or dead, would you most like to have a long lunch? Bill Clinton. I don’t know why.

Other than your parents, who has had the biggest influence on your life and why?

What is the worst job you have ever had? I sold carpet cleaners door-to-door, city-to-city and state-to-state. Oh my, never, ever again! That would be the worst job ever in history. It just wasn’t for me.

What was your favorite Saturday morning cartoon and why? It would have to be Bugs Bunny, of course, and the Road Runner because he never gave up.

What irritates you? People being inconsiderate of each other are very irritating.

What’s one place in Karns or Hardin Valley everyone should visit?

My sisters because I have several, younger and older, and they have been really good for me.

Food City in Hardin Valley because this is a great store. I have great people who work in the front with me and a good management team.

I still can’t quite get the hang of …

What is your greatest fear?

This computer stuff.

What is the best present you ever received in a box? It was a jewelry box somebody gave me that I still have. It meant the world to me and I love it.

1. Go to Niagara Falls in Canada. I would love to do that, it would be fascinating. 2. Take my granddaughters on a wonderful vacation. 3. I don’t have a third one.

What is the best advice your mother ever gave you?

What is one word others often use to describe you and why?

I prefer to talk with people face-to-face, but if I had to choose one, it would be the telephone.

To always remember God is first and to be who you are.

What is your social media of choice?

My greatest fear is a personal fear, not to be here when my granddaughters grow up and what kind of world I’m leaving them that they will be in. That worries me a lot.

If you could do one impulsive thing, what would it be? I wish I did not have to plan my vacation. I would like to just jump in a plane and go somewhere, no suitcases or anything. –Theresa Edwards It can be your neighbor, club leader, bridge partner, boss, father, teacher – anyone you think would be interesting to Karns/Hardin Valley Shopper-News readers.

Rural/Metro displayed its ambulance and fire equipment and gave children play firehats, bracelets, coloring books and candy. ■

Hall is passionate about systems because they can create more time in your day, reduce stress and help increase profitability. “The average business owner loses about two hours a day just trying to find papers they have misplaced or rescheduling appointments,” Hall said. “By putting together some systems for efficiency, I help the small business owner have more time to spend with clients and to spend in their personal life,” she said. “The most important thing to do is to get control of your calendar so you have time blocked off during the

Edwards of week to do those important things in your business,” Hall shared as a key tip. “For example, time blocked off to get back with those you’ve networked with and time to get back in touch with clients. Schedule blocking reduces stress because then you know when that task is going to be handled in your business if it is already on your schedule.”

The war on planning The mayors Interviewed after the meeting, Burchett was no more sympathetic to MPC’s plight than Smith: “The first budget, I cut them,” Burchett said. “They just keep working people from getting jobs. “We’re required by law to have an MPC, but I’d like to use them on a contractual basis in the future. Then if we need them, we’ll hire them.” The city, though, has appropriated $905,000 to MPC in each of the last three fiscal years, indicating support from mayors Bill Haslam and Madeline Rogero.

From page A-1 Frank Niceley introduced a bill to abolish MPC. The bill didn’t go anywhere, but Niceley did. He won the Republican primary and is likely headed to the state Senate. Sens. Becky Massey and Stacey Campfield, along with Rep. Steve Hall, have served notice that they intend to have another go at it next session when they sent separate letters to County Commission asking them to postpone action on subdivision regulations for ridgetop developments until the legislators address the issue next session. In a speech at a local Tea Rep. Party meeting, Hall said

Holding a master’s degree in planning, Rogero is unequivocal in her support for MPC: “The Metropolitan Planning Commission performs crucial work for the citizens of Knoxville, and the city is committed to continuing support of its operations. Effective planning protects the property rights of residents, businesses and all property owners, and ensures that we balance short-term and long-term interests for the benefit of all Knoxvillians.”

that MPC, which was established in 1956 to serve the city and county in matters of planning, zoning, and subdivision regulations as authorized under Title 13 of the Tennessee Code Annotated, “…has a philosophy on property rights that the property is yours until they want it.” Hall said Massey is leading the move to curb MPC’s powers. Massey seemed surprised by Hall’s statement: “I know we’re looking at the regulations that are on the books, but we won’t start actively working on anything until January. The part that has caused some folks concern is there’s no real recourse if somebody disagrees with an MPC decision.”

need less planning, and we’re going to pay in significant ways,” he said. “They are trying to take us back to the ’50s, and I greatly resent them sending a letter before the commission meeting asking us to defer an ordinance until the next legislative session. That was way out of bounds – they don’t call, they don’t talk to anybody and the goofy guys on commission let it happen.”

When told that contested MPC decisions are regularly appealed to City Council and County Commission, she said that she wasn’t sure what the exact problem was, but that her staff is working on it, “looking to see if it’s clear or if it’s vague. Some of my constituents have asked me to look at it.” When asked, she identified the constituents as “the development community.” Commission chair Tony Norman had a hard time disguising his contempt for the legislative request, which his colleagues voted to honor: “I am very disappointed that certain legislators are attacking planning.

Alexander rocks U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander pretty much got rock star treatment from the enthusiastic crowd at last week’s meeting of the West Knox Republican Club.

Anne Hart

It was standing room only in the largest meeting room at Red Lobster on Kingston Pike, with still more guests and members of the media spilling out into the surrounding dining rooms, all to greet Tennessee’s former two-term governor, president of the University of Tennessee and sitting senator. And Alexander didn’t disappoint his fans. He posed for the cameras with babies, local politicians, old friends and new, warmed up his audience with his trademark folksy stories and then

got their collective Republican blood churning with predictions of a big win for presidential candidate Mitt Romney. “Every major crisis we have ever had in this country has been solved by presidential leadership, and Obama just doesn’t have it,” Alexander said. “He’s been a complete failure when you look at the big problems we have. “Romney’s biggest advantage is his ability to lead. It’s his best skill. America will have a brighter future with Romney as president and (Paul) Ryan as vice president. “I like it when Romney talks about how he worked across the aisle as governor of Massachusetts and got results. President Obama is a nice fellow, but he hasn’t been able to work across the aisle and get results, and I think the American people are tired of that. They want a president who can lead, who has presidential leadership and who can work with Democrats and Republicans to reduce the debt and get

Hart the country moving again.” Alexander said his three personal goals in Congress are: “To stop spending money we don’t have … to let states make their own decisions … to get results in Congress.” He deplored the tactics of Democrat Harry Reid, the Senate Majority Leader. “Reid is ruining the U.S. Senate by the way he leads it. We’re there to work for the people, we want the Senate to function so we can get our jobs done, but Reid won’t bring us a budget. It’s like being asked to join the

Grand Ole Opry and not being allowed to sing.” While not exactly a “hometown boy” – he’s a native of Blount County – Alexander, a seventh generation Tennessean, knew his audience well and played it perfectly. “Knox County is the heart of the Republican Party in Tennessee,” Alexander said. “We haven’t elected a Democrat to Congress from this part of the state since Lincoln was president.” The GOP faithful loved it and gave their senior senator a standing ovation.

Parents antsy over school rezoning By Wendy Smith Approximately 140 people gathered at Shoreline Church on Westland Drive for the rezoning meeting hosted by the PTAs of Blue Grass and A.L. Lotts elementary schools. Many of the questions for Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre involved issues related to grandfathering rising 5thgraders and security concerns for the new school. Blue Grass parent Colleen Montgomery asked if there was a possibility that students might be moved from A.L. Lotts to Blue Grass, or vice versa, in the rezoning process. McIntyre said yes, students might be moved to a school other than the new school. Blue Grass parent Amy Wheelock asked if McIntyre had developed any opinions on which students might

be grandfathered into their current school. He said that while it seemed likely that rising 5th-graders will be grandfathered, it was hard to know where to draw the line after that. “That’s where I have a lot of thinking to do, and a lot of listening,” he said. A.L. Lotts parent Gina Esheleman wondered if middle and high school zoning was considered in regard to elementary school rezoning, so that children could attend high school with friends. The county isn’t considering rezoning any other schools right now, McIntyre said, but it does keep such issues in mind. “Can we promise you a perfect, logistical pathway for every kid? No. But we can promise you that we will try.” Jennifer Cline expressed

A.L. Lotts parent Gina Eshleman speaks during Knox County Schools’ final rezoning meeting. Photo by Wendy Smith

concern over the security of the new school given its proximity to a large shopping area and asked if there would be a fence around

the school. McIntyre said a fence is likely, and the new school would also have a secure vestibule, meaning that the only unlocked door would lead directly into the school office. Shannon Harrell wondered if McIntyre knew anything about other possible tenants at Northshore Town Center. He did not, he said. “Now that we are one of the neighbors, I hope and believe that we will be a part of any discussion of what happens with the development from here on out.” Now that McIntyre has conducted four public meetings, he will draft a recommendation for the school board’s December meeting. He told parents he would hold additional community meetings before the board’s final vote on rezoning.

Painter’s union spruces up Tarleton By Betty Bean When Mayor Tim Burchett noticed the peeling paint and weather-battered floors on the deck of two of the foster care administration buildings at the John Tarleton campus of the Helen Ross McNabb Center, he called the Painters’ Local 437 for help. Business agent Eric Surrett responded by recruiting a local contingent from the International Union of Painters and Allied Trades. The crew of painters gave up

two weekends to repaint the rails and strip and repair the deck. “That’s how I train my apprentices,” said Rodney R. Reeder, IUPAT apprentice and training coordinator. His program teaches drywall finishing, concrete application, sandblasting, and industrial coatings and decorative finishes, and his work crew has taken on many volunteer projects in the area, including extensive repainting of YoungWilliams Animal Center.

The former county-run orphanage, which Helen Ross McNabb took over in 2003, houses foster care, adoption, residential, psychiatric assessments, medication treatment and community-based counseling services for children. Burchett says the Tarleton campus is close to his heart. A work in progress: A member of the Painters’ union stains the deck at John Tarleton. Photo submitted

Salute to Phillip Fulmer




host of Volunteers from the Phillip Fulmer era will toast their old coach this weekend. The theme will be congratulations on his forthcoming Hall of Fame enshrinement and thanks for all he did to make them better players and better men. The university will invite polite applause on Saturday. Coach will return to Shields-Watkins Field for a brief ceremony at an early stop in the Alabama game. If you are alert, you may even see Peyton Manning. The 1997 team will be there. For those who came in late, this Fulmer recognition is for 152 victories against 52 losses, a national championship and seven wins in a row over the dreaded Crimson Tide. Alabama remembers. Fulmer’s success ranks somewhere between outstanding and best-ever. His teams, against better opposition, fell 21 short of Robert R. Neyland’s career total victories. As you may have noticed, the stadium is named for the General. What Fulmer did is worth at least a bronze statue. Opinions remain divided about his 2008 exit. Some thought he stayed too long. Others are convinced Tennessee football would be much better than it is if he was still coach. Just the other day, a Shopper reader dusted off Ronald Reagan logic and

asked (via email) if we are better off than four years ago. He answered his own question this way: Eight wins used to be barely tolerated. Now, eight would be excellent. We’ll reserve that better-or-worse debate for later. I will say Mike Hamilton botched most of 2008 as it related to Fulmer. That spring, the athletic director gave the coach a new seven-year contract. In the summer he said, “I am very proud to have Phillip as our coach for many years to come. We are fortunate to have such a talented and proven coach leading our program.” Leading didn’t last long. That November, early in Homecoming week, Fulmer was fired. As we now know, changing coaches didn’t turn out real good. The initial miscalculation by the athletic director cost $6 million. Many more are still draining

away during this recovery period. Set aside the sad part. Now is a good time to remember the good times. It is meaningful that Phillip Fulmer is Tennessee through and through. He grew up in Winchester. As a recruit, he picked the Vols over the Tide. He thought he would be a linebacker but became an offensive guard for Doug Dickey. John Majors brought him back as an assistant coach and promoted him to offensive coordinator. He was a great recruiter. Dickey put Fulmer in charge during Majors’ 1992 illness and gave him the job after the controversial conclusion to Majors’ career. Fulmer highlights, in addition to the remarkable comeback against Arkansas and the national title victory over Florida State, were the 1992 romp in the rain over the Gators, the 1995 rout of Alabama (4114) that started with an 80-yard Manning to Joey Kent touchdown and the terrific 2001 triumph in the Swamp. I really liked the bowl victory over Ohio State, the 2004 win over Georgia in Athens and the unlikely rally at LSU in 2005. Thanks, Coach, for a hundred more good days than bad.

And I, when I am lifted up from the earth, will draw all people to myself. (John 12:32 NRSV) Therefore God also highly exalted him and gave him the name that is above every name, so that at the name of Jesus every knee should bend, in heaven and on earth and under the earth, and every tongue should confess that Jesus Christ is Lord, to the glory of God the Father. (Philippians 2: 9-11 NRSV)


was drowning in paper that afternoon: reports, checks, check registers, forms, write-ups, vouchers, notes to self. Normally, I don’t mind. I am one of the few people on the planet (according to the results of my limited surveys) who still balances her checkbook every month. There is something pleasing and quite satisfying about wrestling all those numbers to the ground, lassoing them, and making them stand up tall and straight, in neat lines and perfect agreement. But on that particular day, I was not handling it well: unable, it seemed, to corral the information I needed without wading through a lot of other – apparently extraneous – names and figures. I should add here that math is not my native tongue. When I was in high school, I told my math teacher that algebra made my stomach

hurt. As my daughter Eden often declares, “We are musicians. We count to four.” (This, as her hand describes in the air a conductor’s pattern for 4/4 time). “If it is written in six, we count it in two.” This time she directs the simple up and down pattern for 6/8. Where the thought came from, I can’t really say. But there it was, fully formed in my brain. Paperwork is the antithesis of grace. It was such a revelation to me that I walked down the hall to my supervisor’s office, stuck my head in, and informed him of that new insight. He just grinned at me, but I saw the tacit agreement in his eyes. Paperwork is all about keeping records, keeping score, keeping track. Grace is about love, acceptance, inclusion, forgiveness: no adding up good deeds (or sins, for that matter), no keep-

ing score, no C-minuses. And along with the thought came a mental picture: St. Peter sitting at his desk at the Pearly Gates, with a great book (alongside stacks and stacks and stacks of folders!), checking the records for everyone standing in line, like so many customers at the bank. Then Christ shows up, and steps over to Peter’s desk and starts vouching for people. “She’s one of mine. Yes, I recognize him. Yes, this little one – in fact, all these little ones are mine. Oh, and that fellow over there, the one with the threadbare coat? He’s mine. The woman talking to herself? Yes sir, she is definitely one of mine.” Finally, in frustration, St. Peter says, “Are you just accepting everybody today?” And Christ holds out his hand over the crowd – a hand that still bears a scar right in the middle of the palm – and says, “All of these are mine. I died for all of them.” T hen, with that same nail-scarred hand, he rakes all of St. Peter’s precious paperwork right off the desk and beckons to the rest of the line. “Come into my house, and welcome.”

Shopper-News Presents Miracle Makers

A shared passion for teaching P

By Wendy Smith

arents pass on eye color, hair color and mannerisms to their children, but the days of passing on the family business are mostly gone. So it’s a surprise when a child chooses a parent’s career – particularly when it’s a challenging one, like special education.

The big game-changer in special education is technology. – Matt Coe West Valley Middle School special educator Matt Coe hadn’t planned to become a teacher at all. But a summer job at Camp Wesley Woods turned into a full-time job as an environmental educator, and he found that teaching appealed to him. So he obtained a teaching license through UT’s Become a Special Educator in Tennessee (BASE-TN) program. At the time, participants received tuition credit for committing to become special educators in Tennessee schools. Once he made the decision to be a teacher, special education was a natural choice. His father, Fred Coe, worked for Tennessee’s Department of Mental Retardation Services (now called the Department of Intellectual and Developmental Disabilities) for 35 years. His mother, Priscilla Coe, became a special educator herself after working with mentally disabled adults for several years. Because of his dad’s job, Matt was used to being around kids with disabilities. When Fred worked at summer camps for disabled kids, Matt and his brother went along, and the family occasionally provided transportation for Fred’s clients. “My whole life, I’ve been working with this population,” Matt says. Priscilla began her teaching career in 1990. She worked at Dogwood and Beaumont elementary schools until she retired in 2005 – the same year Matt began his teaching career at Sterchi Elementary. There have been many changes in special education since Priscilla’s early days in the classroom, but some philosophies and practices have been consistent. The students Priscilla taught were very different from the students Matt currently works with at West Valley, where he has taught for five years. Many of her students were medically fragile, she says, and his students are gener-

ally higher-functioning. But Knox County’s special education program is individualized so that each child receives the attention he needs, no matter his ability level. “I had 10 kids, and they had 10 different programs. I was organized so I could do things in a group setting, but there were different goals for each kid,” she says. Each special education student has an Individualized Education Plan (IEP) developed by the child’s parents, teachers, doctors and therapists – anyone who works with the child, says Matt. The IEP determines the accommodations and modifications the child needs in the classroom. Special education students spend as much time as possible in regular classrooms. The concept of inclusion was gaining momentum when Priscilla began her career in 1990. The primary goal of Knox County’s special education program is independence, and West Valley students work on life skills by going into the community twice a week to shop or visit a work site. Priscilla’s elementary-age students also took regular trips away from the school. Students could learn a

Knox County Council PTA

skill in the classroom, like counting money, but be unable to use that skill in another environment. If they practiced in multiple environments, they were able to generalize such skills, she says. The big game-changer in special education is technology. New software, like the SOLO literacy suite, makes word predictions and allows students to listen to what they write. Such modifications allow students to further participate in mainstream classrooms and even take benchmark exams with their peers, says Matt. With apps that allow students to communicate using both symbols and words, iPads and iPods have also transformed special education. “There’s less frustration. Now they can tell me what they want and what’s bothering them,” Matt says.

But it takes money to fully implement technology. The SOLO software doesn’t work on all of the school’s computers, and there aren’t enough computers to go around. “It’s a great tool, but it’s completely useless if your computers don’t run smoothly,” Matt says. “The things we can do with technology these days are incredible. But it’s all about money.” Proceeds from coupon book sales will help, but West Valley teachers are trying to think of additional ways to raise funds to update the school’s computer labs. Being a special educator is a never-ending cycle of trying new things, and days are often filled with paperwork and meetings, Matt says. But the payoff comes in the form of good days, like a recent Special Olympics bowling event, and academic progress, like the enthusiasm he’s seeing as his students study “The Three Musketeers.” “Most of the time, I love what I do.”

Fun with football Like all teachers, Matt Coe has to get creative to engage his students. One of his most popular ideas is his football and reading program. Each student picks a major league football team at the beginning of the season, and the class keeps a chart of each team’s wins and losses. Each student’s behavior and reading scores can bolster their team’s performance. West Valley Middle School principals and other staff members can participate, as well. So far, there have been no arguments about who gets which team, and Matt has been able to hang onto his beloved Miami Dolphins. “Some students pick the same team every year, but others want to win, so they do their research,” he says. The competition ends before Christmas break, and the winner receives an award. The basketball and reading program tips off next spring.

Another State Title for Schubert On the way back from Auburn last month, CAK golfer Sophia Schubert quickly shifted her focus back to finishing her junior season at CAK. “I want to win district, win region and bring home another state championship,” Schubert said. A month later, Schubert has accomplished each of those three goals. Schubert shot a 2-over 146 last week to claim her second state championship in three years. Now Schubert can celebrate a state championship and a college commitment. While visiting Auburn University in September, Schubert accepted a full athletic scholarship from Golf Coach Kim Evans. Schubert received more than 30 major collegiate offers including 7 of the top 10

golf programs in the nation. “It was impossible for me to make all those visits so I just focused on the top NCAA ranked golf programs and top academic programs,” Schubert said. After visiting Tennessee, Vandy, Alabama, Florida, Texas and Auburn last year, Schubert spent the summer playing in national golf tournaments and moving up the rankings. “When I moved up to 39th overall and 8th in my graduating class (2014), I knew it was time to make some decisions,” Schubert said. “There are a lot of great golf programs in the SEC and out west, but Coach Evans and Coach Shirley at Auburn have been traveling around the country to watch me for 18 months. Coach Evans has a great program and reminds

believes I can help make that happen,” Schubert said. “I love their practice facilities and course. It’s a lot like Fairways and Greens, where I’ve always practiced.” Schubert has been the top ranked Tennessee female junior golfer since August 2011. She won her first AJGA National Open in June. She has also earned four top 3 finishes and eight top 5 finishes in AJGA National Opens.

CAK stands out at Chattanooga meet Coach Tony Cosey led the CAK cross-country team to a great finish Sept. 15, at the Chattanooga Cross-Country Festival. The girls finished second place out of 19 teams, and the boys finished fourth out of 21 teams. Sarah Zimmer won the girls varsity race. Between both teams, they scored five medals overall, which means that CAK had five athletes in the top 20.

Several CAK families came together Sept. 29 to answer the charge of Mark 12:31, “And the second is this: ‘You shall love your neighbor as yourself.’ There is no other commandment greater than these.” In step with CAK’s 35th Anniversary Renewal objective to renew relationships within the community, the missions team set out to show some love to more than 100 neighbors along Dutchtown Road. Families were offered a kind “hello” and were told “We are here for you as your neighbor and would be privileged to lift your family in prayer.” Many families prayed together that day on their front porches. But the Missions team didn’t show up empty handed. Our neighbors were presented with a Bible, a heartwarming bookmark created by CAK 2nd graders, a beautifully wrapped fall yellow mum donated by Saplings Nursery, and a flyer with helpful numbers at the school and Bible references to go to when in need. “Many families were reached, and there’s no doubt that our warm presence will have a lasting impact on those we met,” said Brad Riley, who is helping lead the missions effort for the Renewal this year. “It was great to hear many of the children express how much fun they had, which just goes to prove that there is joy in serving our Lord.” A lengthy list of gathered prayer requests was shared with the Renewal committee that will be prayed over diligently in the months to come. It is good to know the Lord is moving not only in our school, but in the hearts of our neighbors as well. There will be several opportunities for families to serve alongside the missions group this year. Info: www.

Asteroid-naming contest for kids Josh Emery, assistant professor in earth and planetary sciences at the University of Tennessee, works on the OSIRIS-REx asteroid sample return mission which is now hosting a contest that will allow kids under the age of 18 to name an asteroid. The international contest will help scientists find a new name for asteroid 1996 RQ36. To enter, kids should have their parents or teach-

ers fill out a form with the name suggestion and an explanation of why the name would be fitting. The deadline to enter is Sunday, Dec. 2. Emery and other scientists working on the OSIRIS-REx mission have built a robotic spacecraft to send to asteroid 1996 RQ36 to collect samples for analysis. The mission began in May 2011 and will continue until 2025. It takes 1996 RQ36 about 1.2 years to orbit the Sun and could hit Earth within the next two centuries. The goal of the mission, Emery said, is to learn what conditions were like early in the solar system’s development. However, they also want to help protect Earth from the potential impact of

Students and administrators at Farragut High School delivered about 10,000 cans of food to the Love Kitchen last week, all of which was collected by the students. Ten cars full of food formed a “Love Train” convoy with colorful banners streaming from the doors and windows. According to FHS junior Ethan Young, the students switched the direction of their efforts from last year’s charity, Second Harvest Food Bank, to the Love Kitchen for this year

so they could “get away from corporate sponsorship” and make the event more of a group effort by the students. In addition to the cans of food, the school’s Student Government Association raised $2,550 for the Love Kitchen. The students raised the money by hosting pancake breakfasts for the community and with the help of the cheerleaders during halftime at football games. For more information on the Love Kitchen, visit

Watson touts Community Design Center By Sandra Clark David Watson is proud of his 42-year career at the Community Design Center, and he wants everyone who also appreciates the organization to buy a ticket or two and come enjoy the long-awaited Founder’s Celebration, set for Wednesday, Oct. 24, at the Knoxville Museum of Art. The evening will recognize the men and women who founded the organization in 1970, and acknowledge its 887 community improvement projects. Thirteen of the 16 founders are alive, he said. From parks, sidewalks and community centers to facade improvements and historical preservation, it is hard to travel anywhere in East Tennessee without seeing this group’s positive effects, he said. Watson spoke last week to the Powell Business and Pro-

David Watson fessional Association. It was hard not to notice Powell’s Airplane Filling Station front and center among the success stories. Watson said the group does only concept drawings, usually used to raise money. “We do not do construction drawings.� Working with volunteers and UT students, the Community Design Center takes volunteers from

“Wouldn’t it be great if ...?� to “We’re ready to get started!� On Sunday, Oct. 14, the Knoxville PBS station aired a 30-minute documentary on the history, mission and work of the Center. Many of the founders were interviewed. Founders include Knoxville-based architects, landscape architects, planners, an attorney and a sociologist. The group has designed 126 community projects including the concept for Pittman Center; 193 landscape projects for parks and playgrounds; 59 facade enhancements; 160 community facilities; 175 rehabilitation and reuse projects; 51 housing projects; 24 graphic designs; 48 traffic calming sketches; and provided technical assistance to 48 more projects.

Temple Elementary welcomes grandparents


n Oct. 5, Temple Baptist Academy’s elementary school held its annual Grandparents’ Day. Parents and grandparents came, some from long distances, for the special program. The day’s festivities began with a program in the Curtis Hutson Center Auditorium. Each class presented songs, recited poems and quoted Bible verses. Temple principal David Whitaker spoke to the audience about the importance of the partnership that exists between the school and its families – including grandparents. “Temple Baptist Academy is here to come alongside families who not only want to provide a solid education for their children, but want an education that is built on a biblical foundation and belief in our creator God. It is this foundation that gives distinction to what we are providing in educa- Grandparents Emily and Leo Sullivan participate in classroom activities with their grandtion here at daughter, Temple 6th grader Mallory Sullivan.

Temple High School establishes STEM Society This fall, Temple Baptist Academy high school students are taking part in a new student club called the STEM Society. The society brings together students who share an interest in the fields of science, technology, engineering and mathematics. The purpose of the society

is to encourage students to explore, investigate, discover and connect with STEM subjects in a dynamic and practical way. The society provides a forum for students and club leaders to work together and explore many different ideas and activities related to STEM fields. Students who participate in

the society will gain an understanding of the relationships between their academic studies and the practical application of those studies in reallife settings. The STEM Society faculty sponsor is Tim Missey, who notes that the society is “designed to be a complement to

the curriculum, not a substitute for it.” Activities will include practical experiments, investigation, discussion and reflection. These activities are intended to be interesting, engaging, and enjoyable. “One of the goals of the STEM program is to motivate and build confidence in young people who struggle with STEM subjects, and provide an extra outlet for students who already show aptitude and are interested in furthering their learning,” says Missey. Society leaders outlined five objectives for the club:

■ To enrich, enhance and extend the Academy’s curriculum. ■ To inspire higher student achievement in STEM subjects through interaction and experimentation. ■ To facilitate collaboration between students, teachers and professionals in STEM fields. ■ To expose students to exciting opportunities in the STEM fields. ■ To provide guidance and inspiration to students who feel led by God to continue their education in STEM subjects beyond high school.

Dewdrop is not in

Follow Dewdrop Rule:

Become a volunteer Dewdrop Rule’s lengthy service to Parkwest Medical Center has ended, but there are plenty of opportunities for others to follow her example. In fact, Parkwest is expanding its volunteer program and is now seeking volunteers to join its team of almost 160 dedicated volunteers to serve the not-forprofit hospital in a wide variety of roles, including some areas not previously served by volunteers. According to Becky Boyd, volunteer coordinator, Volunteer Services is seeking: ■ Early retirees who miss the hustle and bustle of working and contributing their time and talents ■ Baby boomers recently retired and looking for opportunity to stay active and involved ■ Empty nesters looking for ways to help others ■ Individuals who have excellent customer service and computer skills who enjoy multitasking ■ Part-time employees looking to fill a morning or afternoon shift helping others Parkwest volunteers are requested to commit to about four hours per week. To learn more about how your skills can help others and to obtain an application, call Becky Boyd at 865-373-1556 or email her at

Rule ends almost 39 years as Parkwest volunteer Her name is almost musical if not magical, bringing to mind the morning dew on a Mississippi magnolia. “I’ve told so many stories about it, I don’t know which one to tell you,” Dewdrop Rule says with a laugh. Maybe that’s why Rule was such a breath of spring to the countless people who encountered her quick smile, quicker wit and elephant-like memory at the Information Desk of Parkwest Medical Center for 38 1/2 years. She was there from the day Parkwest first opened its doors and almost every Tuesday since, answering guest’s questions, giving directions and entertaining co-workers with a treasure trove of stories. But on July 31, at age 90 1/2, Dewdrop Rule decided to hang up the familiar blue jacket that identified her as a member of Volunteer Services. “I think 90 and a half is a good age to retire, don’t you?” she says, finishing her sentence in her customary questioning manner. To her, retirement was “no big deal” and simply announced her intentions as she began what would be her final shift. But to many who knew her, Dewdrop was more than a volunteer – she WAS Parkwest. “The reason I did it like that was because I knew two volunteers could handle it just fine and I wasn’t creating a vacuum there,” she explains. “I didn’t want any kind of party – I just wanted to quietly fade into the sunset, but Becky fooled me.” Becky Boyd, Parkwest’s volunteer coordinator, quietly enlisted the help of others who “tricked” Rule into a wheelchair ride, a ride that led to the hospital’s administration board room where she was recognized and thanked by President/CAO Rick Lassiter and Parkwest’s senior leadership. Recognition also came in 2004 when Rule was awarded the Meritorious Service Award as the state’s top hospital volunteer by the Tennessee Hospital Association. In nominating her for the award, Wayne Heatherly, the CAO at the time, hailed her “remarkable spirit and sparkling personality.” “Volunteering has been great,” she says. “I have a lot of passion and loyalty for Parkwest, and have worked with many fantastic volunteers, staff and administrations

At age 90 1/2, Dewdrop Rule has ended almost 39 years of service as a volunteer to Parkwest Medical Center. throughout the years. I now understand the saying, ‘Parting is such sweet sorrow.’ ” The wife of one of its founding physicians, the late Dr. Kenneth Rule, Dewdrop was on volunteer duty the day Parkwest opened its doors. “You know when we first started, we were actually Red Cross volunteers,” she said. “Most of the first volunteers were physicians’ wives. I guess we felt like we had an interest in seeing it succeed.” In fact, when her husband first told her about his plan to invest in a start-up hospital, she had reservations. “Well, when you get involved in something like that, you have to borrow money,” she recalled. “And since I managed the checkbook, I thought, ‘What are you getting us into?!’ But it turned out to be a good thing. The thing that I think that made Parkwest such a success from Day One was that it was built in such a fastgrowing area.” She chose Tuesdays because it was best for her schedule. “I was pretty active in other stuff,” she says. “Toastmasters met on two Fridays during the month so I couldn’t choose Friday. My husband’s afternoon off was Thursday and he wanted me to be free on those days. Wednesdays we had a medical auxiliary meeting (she was president), and on Mondays

I had to do work like mowing my yard and washing windows. So, Tuesdays became my day.” Since then, she has witnessed numerous changes not only in Parkwest, but in healthcare in general. “Things were so slow and easy back then,” she recalls. “When you had surgery, you came to the hospital and were admitted the afternoon before. You didn’t have to get up and get there at 6 a.m. like you do now. Of course, you were still anxious about surgery just like people are now, but we’d have time to talk to them and we would escort them all over the place. We’d take them to the lab, go back and get them and take them to the room. I think that helped people feel better about the surgery.” She also remembers in those precomputer days, looking up patients’ room numbers on a Rolodex, but the biggest change is the building itself. “So much of it has changed,” she says. “Much of the original building is gone. You can’t see it anymore.” Along the way, she’s made scores of friends, coworkers like fellow Information Desk volunteer Leslie Gallaher. “It’s hard to put into words how special Dewdrop has been to me personally,” said Gallaher. “I looked forward to Tuesdays with Dewdrop and reminiscing about her life stories, both past and present. She is an in-

spiration to anyone who has spent time with her.” Among those stories were true-life accounts of life in the Mississippi Delta where she was born near Oxford, Miss., in 1922. A year later, her parents moved by muledrawn wagon to Tunica “to strike it rich.” “I don’t know why she named me Dewdrop, but mother liked it. She always liked it, and I grew to not mind it,” she says. “But since I was in the same place all those years kids really made more fun of my last name – McDonald – because of the song, ‘Old McDonald had a farm ee-i-ee-i-oh.’ ” She went on to graduate from Ole Miss in 1942 with a Bachelor of Science degree in secretarial training, and soon after, took a job with Tennessee Valley Authority. Two years later, she and her husband were wed and moved to Memphis while he completed medical school. Moving back to Knoxville, Dr. Rule opened his family practice in 1947 and they began raising a family – two daughters, Cheryl and Jill, and a son, Kenneth Jr., who became a doctor at the University of Tennessee Medical Center. They spent much of their weekends sharing a houseboat on Norris Lake with another doctor, Dr. Tea Acuff, and his family. When Acuff mischievously posted a “Dewdrop Inn” sign on the houseboat, she changed it to, “Have Tea, Dewdrop Inn.” Weeks after her retirement, she’s trying to get settled into a new routine. “I miss seeing the people I used to see all the time, but I’m enjoying not having to be there every Tuesday afternoon whether I wanted to or not. I’m happy. I thought I wouldn’t be, but I am.” One way she’s staying busy is overseeing a bathroom renovation, a project that has not gone as smoothly as she would like. “I think,” she said jokingly, “that I’ve started my next 38-year project.” For more information about volunteer opportunities, visit or call 374-PARK.

Picture Yourself as a Volunteer!


Parkwest Medical Center is seeking people who enjoy helping others to join its current network of about 160 volunteers. Parkwest strives to be recognized as a model of excellence where every healthcare employee wants to work, every physician wants to practice, and every community member wants to receive care. If you are interested and would like to know more about volunteer opportunities at Parkwest or Peninsula, a Division of Parkwest Medical Center, contact Becky Boyd at (865) 373-1556.

In addition, Boyd, who’s also involved in other volunteer activities such as the Lenoir City High School Basketball Boosters and Central United Methodist Church where she is a member, is credited with launching two new volunteer programs – the Patient Call Center in which volunteers make follow-up phone calls to discharged patients for a “phone hug” and the Companion program, providing companionship from volunteers for patients. “I’m deeply honored by this award,” said Boyd. “But to me, this Everest Award is recognition of all of our volunteers and for the many, many ways in which they serve not just Parkwest but the community as a whole. The difference they make in our lives is amazing.”

B-2 • OCTOBER 15, 2012 • SHOPPER-NEWS we see the need for Coyne’s seminar. It was helpful to be in a group where we could share our feelings with one another and receive the support of others going through similar circumstances. Coyne started these seminars after he experienced being a caregiver during his wife’s 5 1/2- year illness. He found the need for this resource and wanted to help others. He shared the importance of taking care of oneself. “You must eat properly, rest and exercise at least a little Kris Strohschein and Bryan May are caregivers. to get away,” he said.

“Journaling helps to remember things we might need to tell the doctor or what the doctor tells us,” said Bryan May who is a caregiver for his mother. “It helps in keeping track of medications too, so we don’t overmedicate.” Kris Strohschein explained her thoughts on caregiving. “It’s a gift of sharing of life. It changes how you think. You learn to cherish the little things in life.” “There is not a greater calling in life than taking care of your loved one,” Coyne said. He offers a caregivers support group meeting 9:30-11 a.m. the first Monday of each month at All Saints Catholic Church. It is a Christian-based, nondenominational group open to the public.

The lowdown on stink bugs One evening last week, I took my 3-year-old to a park in Farragut for some sliding and swinging. Unfortunately, instead of having fun, the children at the park ran in fear from a swarm of stink bugs air-bombing the playground.

Critter Tales According to a website dedicated solely to the Brown Marmorated Stink Bug (yes, I’m serious), the insect has invaded 38 states in America but does not pose a threat to anyone other than farmers who have experienced damage to their crops. They cause so much agricultural damage, however, that in 2010 many corn, pepper, tomato, apple and peach farmers in the mid-Atlantic states reported total losses because of stink bugs. Even though they don’t bite or sting, they have been given their name for a reason – they produce an unpleasant odor when threatened or killed. Pest control information

Stink bugs are running rampant across the United States right now and have even stopped by the West Side Shopper-News office to say hello. Photo by S. Barrett from Orkin discourages vacuuming stink bugs because it will take some time for the odor to leave your vacuum cleaner. The stink bug has ancestral roots in Asia (which may be why it appears to be wearing a shield similar to a Samurai warrior’s armor). It was accidentally introduced to the U.S. in the ’90s. They cozy up in homes, offices and warehouses in the wintertime, so keep an eye out for a stinky, uninvited guest during the coming months. A group of researchers from 10 universities are collectively researching ways to manage the stink bug population including parasitic wasps, naturally occurring fungus and insecticides. Their efforts can be tracked at

The Knoxville Bar Association will feature a LawTalk event Friday and Saturday, Nov. 2-3, for individuals interested in learning more about wills and estate planning and legal protection for the elderly. The program will help individuals organize their affairs in light of the 2012 changes to gift and inheritance tax laws. Experienced local attorneys will provide information regarding planning for incapacity and death, which can happen to anyone at any age. The session will run 9-11 a.m. both days, with the Friday session meeting at The John T. O’Connor Center and the Saturday session meeting at Fellowship Church, 8000 Middlebrook Pike. The second session will focus on legal protection for the elderly, the disabled and their caregivers. Local attorneys will discuss the legal issues of how to finance long-term health care, the means by which assets can be preserved and the do’s and don’ts of property transfers. This session Koko Fit Club staff Nikki Gray, Tricia Kilgore and Cheri Guymon will run from 11:30 a.m.gather during the Bearden location’s open house Oct. 19. 1:30 p.m. on both days. Guest speaker was Dr. Larry Kilgore of UT Medical Center (not pictured). Attendees enjoyed free strength and cardio sessions, food and door prizes. The club has locations in Bearden and Farragut.

Tail-waggin’ fundraiser hits $50,000 By Sherri Gardner Howell There is rarely a time when Man’s Best Friend isn’t ready to take a walk. Walking around The Cove this fall really got tails to waggin’ as the PetSafe K9 Cancer Walk brought more than 500 dog lovers and their pets together to fight canine cancer.

Funds will benefit Morris Animal Foundation, a national nonprofit organization that is a leader in investing in research to advance veterinary care for animals, including the prevention and treatment of canine cancer. The walk raised more than $50,000, which was added to ap-

proximately $25,000 raised at the PetSafe Black Tie and Tails Gala, making it a big month for canine health research. In a press release, Kate O’Brien, senior event specialist with Morris, said, “Knoxville is one of the most welcoming communities in the nation. Everyone really

cares about their community and that includes helping their dogs live longer, healthier lives.” Winning teams were: Top Team Members – UT College of Veterinary Medicine; Top Fundraising Team – PetSafe, which raised more than $9,000; Top Fundraising Individual – Kristine Lively; and Most Team Spirit – Bluegrass Animal Hospital.
