By Sara Barrett When Jennifer Brickey’s daughter, Scarlet, began preschool, the teachers asked why she wouldn’t color inside the lines. “Sometimes I forget that being a mom and being an artist are two different things,� says Brickey. “I didn’t give my daughter coloring books. I gave her paper and told her to draw anything she wanted.� Brickey was just promoted to assistant professor in the art department at Pellissippi State Community College. In addition to now eight-year-old Scarlet, Brickey and her husband, Travis, also have a four-year-old son, Benjamin. Although she says it can get interesting trying to juggle being an artist with teaching and being a mom, she incorporates her experiences of daily life and suburbia into her artwork. “And I have to be OK with the

fact that sometimes my studio is spread out on the kitchen table while the kids are watching movies in the next room,� she says of finding time to be creative. She works on up to 10 canvases at once. “I am careful of how much I take on,� she says. “But I sacrifice sleep more than anything else.� Since she was a child, Brickey remembers always making things and being interested in art and architecture. Both of her parents were factory workers, and she feels that her method of creating multiple pieces at once pays homage to that memory. “I’m such a pingpong ball. I am impacted by the world around me every day,� she says of her creative inspiration. She considers herself an introvert but enjoys talking to others about what her art evokes in them. Brickey lists contemporary fe-

male artists as a major influence and says every artist has been taught by the masters, they just aren’t aware of it. “I feel a sort of obligation to pass on this knowledge,� she says of teaching. “Some things I teach are directly from my work, but I am also still learning myself. That helps me have empathy for my students, and it allows them to make mistakes, too.� An example of Brickey’s mixed media art will be included in this year’s Artitude fundraiser hosted by The Cancer Support Community and Dogwood Arts. The event will be held 6-9 p.m. Friday, April 15, at the Atrium at Cherokee Mills. Tickets are $40 and proceeds will benefit The Cancer Support Community. Info: 546-4661. Brickey tries to donate several works to help out the community each year.

“In a world where we are much more concerned about speed and technology, art is something you have to slow down to appreciate,� she says. “We need more beauty. We can worry about what it means later.� Info: jenniferbrickey.com

South schools: Turmoil spreads as Rountree seeks answers By Betty Bean With major problems at three South Knoxville schools, board member Amber Rountree wants answers. She also wants equity. Rountree has asked Superintendent James McIntyre for a side-byside comparison of class offerings at South Doyle Middle School and Bearden Middle School. “Our kids in South Knoxville deserve equal curriculum opportuRountree nities,� she said. A brave sixth-grader spoke on behalf of students and teachers at last week’s school board meeting in response to proposed class cuts at South-Doyle Middle School for the upcoming school year “All these classes that have been cut are classes that children look forward to during the school day,� she said. “What does this mean for the teachers who taught these classes?

have lost their job. Why? Because of the budget, or test scores? Have other middle schools lost their Spanish, keyboarding, music, PE, AVID, focus block, jazz band and singing groups?� She said that students “were crying or screaming from anger and surprise� when they heard the news. Meanwhile, at Mt. Olive Elementary School, parents are repeating last year’s complaints about principal Paula Brown. This year, 113 parents and relatives have signed a petition demanding Brown’s removal. The petition says that the school has lost “a number of great teachers� because of Brown’s actions, and that parents are tired of having their complaints ignored. “How many great teachers do we have to lose before someone steps up and makes a leadership change? Our parents are unhappy, and our children are suffering while our teachers are being bullied. We stand together as parents and as a community in asking

for the immediate removal of the principal at Mount Olive Elementary School.� South-Doyle High School has been under interim leadership since principal Tim Berry and assistant principal/head football coach/athletic director Clark Duncan were placed on administrative leave Feb. 8. They are suspended with pay pending an investigation by the Knox County District Attorney General. Rountree says these high-profile problems are overshadowing the good things happening in South Knox schools. She can’t comment on the high school situation, and expressed sympathy for the Mt. Olive parents “who are frustrated by a lack of communication� with the principal and Knox County Schools administration. “These parents came to a board meeting this time last year (with the same complaints). As a board member, I don’t make staffing decisions, but I do pass on what folks share with me.� Rountree has had plenty to say

about the impending changes at the middle school, though, and in an email she sent to McIntyre the day after the board meeting, she makes it clear that she is not happy with SDMS principal Taiwo Sutton’s decisions nor with how he is communicating with parents. In an April 6 email to parents, Sutton downplayed the changes, which he described as adjustments in class sizes and “minor staffing and programmatic changes� that won’t impact student schedules or related arts classes. Rountree told McIntyre she is “appalled at the administration willfully painting an inaccurate and incomplete picture of the ‘minor staffing and programmatic changes’ at SDMS to students and parents. Furthermore, I find these curriculum changes unacceptable. These changes will not benefit the students. “As you heard yesterday, students are passionate about these classes and without them many of them will lose interest in school. To page A-2

With grandmother on her mind By Sherri Gardner Howell There was a definite chill in the air for the Knoxville Alzheimer’s Tennessee Walk on Saturday. The setting, however, screamed “Spring,� so participants had little trouble warming up to the cause. Held at the University of Tennessee Gardens off Neyland Drive, the Alzheimer’s Tennessee Walk drew close to 1,000 walkers and several celebrities, including Alzheimer’s Tennessee champions, Coach Phillip and Vicky Fulmer and their family and Karns High School’s rising star, Emily Ann Roberts. The Fulmer family threw Emily Ann Roberts signs autographs for fans after her performance at the Knoxville Alzheimer’s their support behind the Tennessee Walk.

With a school that is already struggling with behavior issues, how do you think these curriculum changes will positively impact behavior?� In a Shopper News interview, Rountree said the changes Sutton proposes will disrupt innovative instruction taking place in SDMS feeder schools like the Arts 360 program, which integrates arts and academics.

The other guard

This is the story of the other guard, Ed Molinski, Tennessee 1938-40, twotime All-American, College Football Hall of Fame. Robert Lee Suffridge was a bit more famous, a three-time All-American, recipient of the 1940 Knute Rockne Award as the most valuable lineman in the country. Later, Suffridge was a first-11 honoree after the first hundred years of football, selected from an estimated 2.5 million former players. He had credibility. Robert R. Neyland said Suff was the best he ever saw. Mo was close. The two guards played in a golden era for the Volunteers, 17 consecutive games without permitting a point. Their

Marvin West

teams won 31 and lost two. They will be recognized again on Saturday at the Orange and White game when the school presents an inaugural version of its athletic hall of fame. Cheers. Suffridge and Molinski meshed flawlessly in Neylandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s single wing and the 6-2-2-1. They were devastating blockers and devilish defenders. They were opposites as people. Whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s more, they didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t like each other.

We are told that Molinski thought the happy-go-lucky Suffridge was irresponsible or worse. We know what Suff thought of laws, rules and regulations. You may have read in one of my books about the olâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Vol visiting the newspaper on a very cold night and walking away with a sportswriterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s overcoat. Neither man came from upper-crust. Bob was born in Union County, moved to Fountain City, played brilliantly at Central High. Ed, born in Scranton, Pa., of Polish immigrants, spent time in an orphanage because his mother died young. He grew up in Massillon, Ohio. The father wanted the son to become heavyweight boxing champion of the world. The legendary Paul Brown wanted him to play football. Then high school

coach and father compromised. Ed was a great guard and boxing champ of Ohio. He was an excellent student at UT. He earned his masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s while still playing. He became an assistant coach at Memphis State and a professor in history and geography. He joined the Marines during World War II and became a second lieutenant. Ed returned to coaching and teaching, this time at Mississippi State, and decided he wanted to be a doctor. He needed a specific chemistry credit to get into med school. It wasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t offered in Starkville. To keep him on the football staff, the athletic director persuaded the president to create the course. This was a life-changing moment. Molinski later enrolled at UT med school, assisted various Memphis high

school football programs and worked as a security guard at the veterans hospital to pay the bills. When he started his medical practice, he became team doctor for Memphis State and several high schools. In his spare time, he was the professional boxing doctor in town. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He truly loved the medical profession,â&#x20AC;? said son Chuck Molinski. â&#x20AC;&#x153;He worked at it until his death in 1986.â&#x20AC;? He was 68. There are dozens of Molinski tales and tidbits. He barely survived a copperhead bite at age 5. As a redshirt sophomore with the Vols, he was a volunteer policeman in Ohio â&#x20AC;&#x201C; during the infamous 1937 steel mill strikes. Three people died. Hundreds were injured. His father was a striker. There was a MolinskiSuffridge fight that never

happened. Neyland vetoed it. Ed was captain of the UT boxing team. There was a late evening when Molinski and Suffridge reconnected for a minute, long distance, in an identity crisis. Chuck Molinski remembers it well. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The sheriffâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office in an East Tennessee county called our home and Mom answered. The caller said Ed Molinski was in jail for hitting a restaurant waitress. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Mother looked over at Dad and said â&#x20AC;&#x2DC;My husband is right here next to me. There must be some mistake.â&#x20AC;&#x2122;â&#x20AC;? Upon further investigation, it was found that Suff had told the police he was that famous Tennessee guard, Ed Molinski. If there was a book about the other guard, would you read it? Marvin West invites reader response. His address is westwest6@netzero.com

Airport attorney Foster keeps his feet on the tarmac Bruce Foster Jr. came by the legal profession naturally. His grandfather, E.G. Foster, and his father were both attorneys. But the younger Foster didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know anything about representing airports before he was hired as attorney for the Metropolitan Knoxville Airport Authority in 1987. He learned on the job, he says. Bruce Foster Sr. settled in Knoxville after law school, and Bruce Foster Jr. was a member of the second class to graduate from West High School. He went on to UT for his bachelorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s and law degrees. He hoped to learn to fly during his Army service, but never had the opportunity.

Renovations to the terminal, completed in 2000 at a cost of $78 million, were complicated because the airport had to operate while the new terminal was being built on the same footprint.

Mike Pettit is one of the veterans on board and is thankful for the opportunity to make the trip. He was at a recent presentation when LifeStar donated a Zoll E Series cardiac monitor to Eddie Mannis of HonorAir for the trips. HonorAir takes veterans, free of charge, to the nationâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s capital to see the memorials built to recognize the sacrifices they made for their country. The equipment will allow the paramedics, nurses and physicians who fly with Honor Air to quickly diagnose and treat cardiac emergencies before the arrival of an ambulance. LifeStar personnel ac-

company the group on each trip. Since HonorAir began in 2007, more than 2,500 WWII, Korea and Vietnam veterans have taken the free, one-day trip. Medics Matt Owens, Rocky Walker and Kay Kirkland represented LifeStar at the event. Following the presentation, I had the opportunity to chat with Pettit briefly. When asked what he wanted to see the most while in Washington, Pettit got choked up and said that seeing the memorials means a lot to him. He talked a little bit about his service in Vietnam. I learned that he was a graduate of West High

School and the University of Tennessee who learned to fly planes in Knoxville before joining the Air Force, in which he served five years. In Vietnam, Pettit flew a C7A Caribou and remembers flying in dangerous zones, often right at the tops of the tree line. He said Vietnam was a beautiful place but not an ideal place to be in war time. Pettit was awarded the Distinguished Flying Cross for his service. Pettit left home when his youngest was just nine months old. His wife would send tapes of the baby and the family talking for him to listen to while overseas. When he finally returned, an older child mentioned dad being home, and that once-young-baby went and

grabbed the tape player â&#x20AC;&#x201C; her only knowledge of her dad. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when I choked up. At the end of the donation event, LifeStar gave veterans an opportunity to ride in the helicopter over Knoxville. Pettit jumped at the chance to ride in the cockpit, having flown an aircraft during his military service. I jumped at the chance to ride along and capture pictures of him and of Knoxville so he could remember the day for a long time. When we landed back at the hanger, Pettit and I said our goodbyes and shared a hug. It was truly an honor to have met Mike Pettit and to say thank you for his service to this country.

Studying war and other tales Scholars at the University of Tennessee are preserving war stories from veterans of A m e r i c a â&#x20AC;&#x2122;s conf licts, not from the â&#x20AC;&#x153;top down,â&#x20AC;? but from Cynthia Tinker the â&#x20AC;&#x153;bottom up,â&#x20AC;? making UT a national center for the military records of people who actually participated in Americaâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s battles. The Center for the Study of War and Society is collecting letters, diaries, photos, memoirs and small unit histories. Interviewer Cynthia Tinker says itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a labor-intensive project with World War II research available online at dlxs.lib.utk.edu/f/fa_spc She spoke recently to the North Knoxville Rotary Club at Littonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s. The office is headed by Vejas G. Liulevicius, history professor who also attended. But Tinker, the program coordinator, got both laughs

and maybe a few tears as she read transcripts of the interviews with veterans. She told of one â&#x20AC;&#x153;Forrest Gumpâ&#x20AC;? interview â&#x20AC;&#x201C; a UT grad in geology who happened along at juncturepoints in history. He was working in Iran and got out just one week before the hostage takeover. He was helped by the Canadians. On his travels he met Queen Frederica, Orson Welles and the Beatles. He ended most statements with, â&#x20AC;&#x153;But I didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t know who (they) were.â&#x20AC;? Since the project began in 1984, the UT scholars have received thousands of contributions. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are always looking for more donations,â&#x20AC;? said Tinker. To preserve items in UTâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s collection, phone 865-9740128 or email csws@utk. edu/ The Center is based in room 220 Hoskins Library. Donors are always welcomed. A special fund memorializing Hop Bailey Jr. has been established.

Most recently, the Center launched a digital veterans oral history project. Audiotapes of 25 years of interviews were digitized and mounted online for the broadest possible dissemination by UT Libraries. The data are available to all, from professional military history authors to high school kids working on a class project. Information can be searched by interviewee, subject, geographic region or other keywords. The Centerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s staff have recorded more than 300 hours of veteransâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; interviews. Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s history thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s getting away as veterans die. Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s a sense of urgency on the part of the scholars to talk with as many veterans as possible.

Knoxville resident Susan Richardson Williams, a Jeb Bush candidate for delegate on March 1, was appointed as an alternate for Donald Trump by the GOP state committee at its April 2 meeting. Williams has served on the UT Board of Trustees, TVA Board of Directors and as commissioner of personnel under Gov. Lamar Alexander. She will serve along with former state Sen. Stacey Campfield as an alternate for Trump. Other Knoxville residents going to the GOP national convention as delegates and alternates include former Sheriff Tim Hutchinson for Trump, Sam Maynard for Trump, Ken Gross for Trump, Karen Brown alternate for Cruz, this writer for Rubio, Michael Hensley for Rubio, Party chair Ryan Haynes for Rubio, Ted Hatfield alternate for Trump, Mike Arms alternate for Rubio and Gov. Bill Haslam for Rubio. Former Knoxville resident and UT student body president Steve Gill is a Cruz delegate. The convention opens on July 18 in Cleveland. State Sen. Mae Beavers, from Sumner County (Middle Tennessee) or state Sen. Bill Ketron are being widely discussed Mae Beavers as the possible chairs of the Tennessee delegation. Beavers is a Trump delegate who won the most votes statewide. She would be the first woman to chair a Tennessee Republican delegation at a national convention. The chair is elected by the full delegation and a majority are delegates pledged to Trump. Ketron is also a Trump delegate. â&#x2013; Meanwhile on the Democratic side, Mayor Madeline Rogero, after staying silent for months on her preference between Sen. Bernie Sanders and former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton, has now come out in favor of Clinton by seeking to be a delegate for her. Knox County Democrats in the March 1 primary split almost evenly between Clinton and Sanders with Clinton carrying Knox County by only 900 votes. If Clinton is elected President, Rogero is expected to take a position in her Ad-

Victor Ashe

ministration in 2017 or 2018. Her term as mayor expires in December 2019, and she is ineligible to seek a third term. Being a delegate for Clinton would be a political boost for her to win a job with Clinton. â&#x2013; Some Knox County Democrats are disappointed and unhappy over Rogero forcing Tank Strickland to resign his position with the city after working for four mayors. Strickland has been an active Democrat over the years, the first African-American to chair the Knox County Commission and a Democrat elected by a bipartisan coalition. He also had a kidney transplant and is in his 60s. Rogero had never voiced any dissatisfaction with Stricklandâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s job performance during her first term but apparently had not forgiven Strickland for supporting Haslam over her for mayor in 2003. â&#x2013;  Hugh Nystrom, GOP County Commission nominee, had a backyard barbecue at his Westmoreland home a few days ago to thank supporters for his substantial primary victory and to encourage them to continue the effort to the Aug. 4 general election against Democrat Marleen Davis. Over 100 persons attended including county Trustee Ed Shouse and Ann Bailey, sister of Gov. Bill Haslam. â&#x2013;  One really has to admire Lt. Gov. Ron Ramseyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s willingness to depart on his own from the second highest office in Tennessee state government after 24 years of service. John Wilder never did it. Many public officials overstay their time. Ramsey leaves on a high note and the voters had not discharged him from further service. Ramsey made a difference in government and has been a very effective leader of the Senate. Sen. Randy McNally, who represents part of Knox County, is mentioned as the likely next Speaker of the Senate. He would be the first Anderson Countian to be lieutenant governor and a heartbeat away from the governorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s office. â&#x2013;  The Legislature is expected to adjourn for the 2016 session by the end of next week at the latest.

Lewis Frelan Goddard, was born on May 9, 1924, in Proctor, Vermont. His parents were Carlyle J., then employed in the Vermont marble industry, and Elva Emmons Goddard. The Goddards moved to Knox County in April 1927 and Carlyle Goddard was employed as a draftsman and later as an engineer for a series of marble and construction companies. Frelan first attended grade school at Park City Lowry but completed eighth grade at Smithwood Grammar School. He became active in Harry Metcalfâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Boy Scout Troop 25 when he became 12 years old. An early interest in bird study soon made him an expert in identification of many species and he even developed an ability to nurse sick and injured birds back to health. He matriculated at Central High School in 1939 and continued his interest in the outdoors by his membership in the Hiking Club each of the four years, serving as its president for two years. With World War II capturing the attention of high school seniors in 1942-1943, he joined the enlisted reserves in the Army Signal Corps. In January 1943, he was sent to the Lafayette Trade School in Lexington, Ky. Upon completion of the course in July, he was assigned to Camp Crowder, Mo. In their long-range planning for the largest seaborne invasion in history, cross-channel invasion of Europe which would occur on D-Day, Tuesday, June 6, 1944, the Allied commanders realized the French Resistance movement, the

HISTORY AND MYSTERIES Maquis, could greatly assist just before and just after the landings. They could stymie the German defenses by destroying the highways, bridges and railroads needed to rapidly move reinforcements to the front. One of the first clandestine branches of the infant OSS (Office of Strategic Services), the predecessor of the CIA (Central Intelligence Agency), was an operation code-named Operation Jedburgh. Some of the â&#x20AC;&#x153;Jedsâ&#x20AC;? later became CIA directors, including William â&#x20AC;&#x153;Wild Billâ&#x20AC;? Donovan and William Colby. Recruiters were sent out far and wide to ask for volunteers. Eventually the elite group would number 92 teams with 276 men, 83 of them Americans. Each three-man team was made up of an American or British officer, a French officer and an enlisted radio operator to maintain communications and to coordinate with the central command back in Britain. The teams would parachute into German-occupied France and rendezvous with the Maquis and re-supply them with arms, ammunition, food and other supplies.

Roofing with a view is perk of mission trip

The Lord will guide you continually, and satisfy your needs in parched places, â&#x20AC;Ś and you shall be like a watered garden, like a spring of water, whose waters never fail. (Isaiah 58:11 NRSV) April is the cruelest month, breeding Lilacs out of the dead land, mixing Memory and desire, stirring Dull roots with spring rain. (â&#x20AC;&#x153;The Waste Land,â&#x20AC;? T. S. Eliot)

By Carolyn Evans Mom-of-three Laura Shockley just went on her first international mission trip. It was so meaningful that she now has a new picture on her iPhone: Coco di Mama beach where she sat at the end of a workday. Thirty people from Concord United Methodist Church spent spring break in the Bahamas. The multigenerational group included mission-minded workers from age 12 to 77. They roofed houses and mudded sheetrock and sat on a different beach each afternoon. â&#x20AC;&#x153;In the beauty of the place, you canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t help but feel Godâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s presence,â&#x20AC;? Shockley says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;After work every afternoon we tried a different beach, some on the Caribbean side and some on the Atlantic side,â&#x20AC;? says Jane Currin, missions director at the church. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We called it the pre-rinse before your shower. It was a good way to start getting the paint or tar off.â&#x20AC;? This was CUMCâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s fourth trip to the non-commercialized Bahamian island of Eleuthera. The group worked in a small settlement called Gregory Town and stayed at Camp Symonette, the missions headquarters of the Bahamas Methodist Habitat. They split into four work crews to repair roofs, build a gate and remodel two houses. Shockley had company on the trip: Her husband and two of their daughters. Shockley, who is afraid of heights, got some on-thejob training in roofing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s roofing with a view,â&#x20AC;? laughs Currin. â&#x20AC;&#x153;All the houses are single-story, but since the 110-mile long island is only about a mile wide, from up on the roof we could usually see one ocean or the other.â&#x20AC;?

Spring heartbreak

â&#x20AC;&#x153;Miss Francesâ&#x20AC;? visits with Laura Shockley and her daughters, Anna and Kelsey, at one of the local stores in Gregory Town.

T. S. Eliot was right. April will break your heart. There are, so Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m told, people who are sad in the autumn. Death, they claim: the dying year. The leaves turn gold and russet and scarlet, and then fall to the earth. Winter will be next, they say. I am a child of the autumn, so it is life to me: sparkling skies and rustling leaves and cool evenings and a fire in the fireplace. April, on the other hand, always makes me sad. I have no idea why that is. There have been many happy occasions in April throughout my life â&#x20AC;&#x201C; my brother Warrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s April birthday, the birth of my daughter Eden, my marriage to my wonderful Lewis and his own April birthday â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but there is an ache around the heart that I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t define.

Shockley and daughter Anna sealed metal sheeting that connected two roof sections with tar. It was one of the lowest-to-the-ground jobs, says Shockley. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hard every day because of the environment,â&#x20AC;? Shockley says. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s hot and humid, but everybody loved doing the work. All the youth Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ve talked to here have loved it.

I love the dogwoods, with their nail-scarred petals, and the redbuds which flower into the purple of the mocked Kingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s robe.

Freedom Song uses Passover story to address addiction production, and you walk away singing it.â&#x20AC;? He thinks the message of the story is important for everyone in the community. A promotional video for â&#x20AC;&#x153;Freedom Songâ&#x20AC;? points out that Jews are rarely associated with addiction. The message of the musical is that any family can struggle with addiction, no matter what faith they practice or how normal they seem. A $5 donation is suggested.

Farragut High School students Lily Gao, Ameena Iqbal, Ben Jones and Zachary MacIntyre are recognized with several of their peers for academic achievement.

Students recognized for academic achievement dents and their parents. “For the last 33 years, Farragut High School has always had at least one National Merit Finalist,” said Bolinger.

S.O.R. Losers Story So Far: South Orange River Middle School has created a special seventhgrade soccer team for a bunch of guys who have no interest in sports. Ed Sitrow, unwillingly designated goaltender, tells what happens. The ride to Buckingham Junior High’s soccer field the next day was strange. We were not the only team going. Two other soccer teams, our regular eighth-grade team as well as the sixth-grade team, were on the bus. Everyone sat with their own group. The other kids were all moody, worried, like they were playing the game in their heads. As for us, we were relaxed, looking out windows, telling jokes, talking about this and

that. I mean nobody wanted to even think about what was going to happen. Then, when we arrived, the other kids jumped to their feet all excited, with lots of laughing, shouting, pounding each other on backs, like they wanted to get out. Now it was our turn to sit moody and glum. The bus driver turned around and looked at us. We were the only ones left. “Hey, guys, this is it.” “Can’t we go to the next stop?” asked Porter. The bus driver thought the remark was a joke. We didn’t. So it was that on a chilly, gray September afternoon we stepped from the bus and

slouched toward the Buckingham field. The leaves were just beginning to turn. Our stomachs already had. Right then and there, I knew why I was opposed to capital punishment. I not only wanted to live, I firmly believed I was innocent. We all were. Our only crime was that we didn’t like sports much. Worse, we actually preferred other things. Not everything. Some things. For example, Saltz was keen on his writing, and only okay in biology. Lifsom was gung-ho about art, but his grades were generally just so-so. Fairly normal. Or so we thought. Watching football, rooting for teams, stuff like that, just wasn’t important to us. True, Fenwick was a whiz at poker, and claimed that was a sport, but he didn’t get much support. You’d think not being into sports was antihuman, or worse, un-American. How? By the notion that playing sports isn’t fun. Fun. It reminded me of a class trip to the A.S.P.C.A. Someone asked a woman there if they ever had to kill an animal. “Oh, no,” she said with a big smile, “we just put them into a long, long sleep.” After two practices, we could tell that we were heading into a long, long sleep. When we got to the field, the Buckingham team was already lying in wait. Mr. Lester went to speak to the other coach. Maybe to warn him. As he left, he said, “Get yourselves ready.” Get ready? Get lost is what we wanted to do. Out in the middle of the field, the referee was showing off, kicking the soccer ball up in the air with alternate feet and never once letting it touch the ground. We watched. “Think he’s open to a bribe?” wondered Hays. “Why not just get him for our team?” Saltz said. “Do an exchange,” offered Radosh. “We’ll ref. He’ll play.” “Sure,” said Porter, “but then we’d have to know the rules.” Porter had a point. Then we watched the Buckingham team. They were kicking the ball to each other as if it were on a guide wire. “I think they know how to play,” said Root, clearly upset by the possibility. “Maybe we should ask for lessons, instead of a game,” put in Dorman. With that, we all started to laugh. And couldn’t stop. Mr. Lester hurried back. When he saw us in the midst of our fit, he got worried. “Is something the matter?” he asked. “Root here,” said Hays, “had this idea that we were going to play those guys. It broke us up.” “Why, yes,” said Mr. Lester, perfectly serious. “They are the opposing team.” “What are they, all-stars?” asked Eliscue. “Oh, no,” said Mr. Lester, alarmed. “It’s their third-string seventh-grade team. Perhaps, gentlemen, you should warm up.”

“When you’re cold, you’re cold,” said Barish. It was such a bad joke we stopped laughing. “Does everybody know what position he is playing?” asked Mr. Lester. We did, sort of. During the second practice, book in hand, he had placed us around, but I wasn’t sure of the position names, except goaltender. “Now,” said Mr. Lester, “remember the important thing is to . . .” Then, so help me, he forgot what he was going to say. But Mr. Lester was, if nothing else, prepared. Right off, he went to his pocket and pulled out some papers. Notes. “Ah, yes,” he said, and began to read. “It’s important to concentrate. Learn to meet the ball. And, gentlemen, the most important thing of all is—” We never did learn the most important thing of all. The referee blew his whistle. The Buckingham team gathered, their blue jerseys merging into a storm cloud. Out came a thunderous cheer. If that cheer was meant to show us that, although a third-string team, they were real and strong and feeling victorious, that we had every reason to expect defeat, it worked. “How about us doing a cheer?” suggested Mr. Lester. “Shazam,” said Lifsom. Not only was he the only one who said anything, it didn’t work. We were still us. We sort of backed onto the field. Lifsom, who was playing up front in the middle, shook hands with the opposite Buckingham players. Maybe they decided to be nice to us. Anyway, it was our ball for starters. As for myself, I was strolling around in the goal area trying to remember everything I knew about the rules, which wasn’t much. How far could I go? I felt certain I could kick the ball, but on second thought, as well as third through seventh, I wasn’t sure. Was I allowed to touch the ball with my hands or just my elbows? Did knees count? Things like that. In fact, I was pacing along the newly chalked goal lines, with my back to the field, when the whistle blew. I looked up, wondering what had gone wrong. What had gone wrong was, the game had begun. Now, the way it works, I think, or is supposed to work, is that Lifsom, being up front and middle, sort of kicks the ball back toward our side — at the moment it was Barish who was behind him — and away we would go. But to give you a full sense of how the game went, all I can say is that somewhere, somehow, between the time the ball touched Lifsom’s foot — I think it was his foot, because, as I said, I hadn’t been watching — and the time it was supposed to reach Barish, Buckingham had already stolen the ball. They didn’t just steal it. They kept it. Forever. When I looked up, I saw this wall of storm-blue shirts rolling down the field, in my direction! (To be continued.)

Bearden Middle School is known for its diverse student body, but sometimes it can be difficult for students of different nationalities to find their niche. About 10 years ago, BMS English Language Learner instructor Bill Meidl started the International Club for this reason. Initially named the ESL Club (English as a Second Language), the International Club celebrates students who represent another language or country. School counselor Jimmy Cannington has since joined Meidl as a co-sponsor. â&#x20AC;&#x153;ELL students and native English speakers are wel-

native Sarah Moore has always been interested in art, but she didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t realize she wanted to be a full time artist until Sarah Moore she was half way through graduate school. When working on architectural drawings, Moore says she would ďŹ nd herself thinking about her passion for painting and drawing. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s never a moment

when Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m painting that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;d rather be drawing a building,â&#x20AC;? she says with a laugh. She decided to switch her focus and she hasnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t looked back. She now works for a nonproďŹ t in South Carolina while nurturing her career as an artist. Envision Gallery in Bearden at 4050 Sutherland Avenue will host Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s solo exhibition â&#x20AC;&#x153;Find Ourselvesâ&#x20AC;? April 22 through May 20. An opening reception will be held 5-8 p.m. Friday, April 22. Refreshments and wine will be served, and a violinist will perform. Mooreâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s paintings are done in acrylics and feature

nature, people and travel. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I learned to paint in oil like most artists, but it didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t dry quickly enough for me,â&#x20AC;? she says. Moore also creates drawings from India ink and ďŹ ne art markers. They will be included in the show as well. It isnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t a coincidence the showâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opening falls on Earth Day. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Find Ourselvesâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; reminds us that the root of our existence is the natural environment, and the celebration of that existence is the tie we spend with those we love,â&#x20AC;? says a press release about the exhibition.

Rotarians team with PSCC choir

Dr. Allen Edwards and Dr. Anthony Wise have a few things in common. Edwards is president emeritus of Pellissippi State Community College. Wise is the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s current president. Both are members of the Rotary Club of Knoxville. Both accompanied the collegeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s choir, Variations, on an eight-day trip to Lima, Peru, and helped raise money for a project for the Lima Sunrise Rotary Club. Rotary is about making connections at home and abroad and this was a 3,345-mile connection between Knoxville and Lima Rotarians. It was the ninth trip for the 34-voice college choir, there from March 4-12. One of the choirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s seven

performances was a benefit concert for the Lima Sunrise club. The club is helping establish a rural center outside of Lima to help young boys with behavioral problems. The Lima club has only 25 members and the benefit raised $1,000, a huge sum for such a small club, Edwards said. The Lima Sunrise Rotary is an English-speaking club. The choir also did a benefit concert for the Union Church of Lima for its organ

fund. The choir is directed by Meagan Langford, interim choral director. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The students had wonderful experiences. They learned a lot about Rotary and about service projects,â&#x20AC;? Edwards said. The choirâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s repertoire consists of classical religious music, American folk music, popular music, and African American spiritual music. They have performed at some famous locations in their nine years of travel â&#x20AC;&#x201C; at The Cathedral of Notre Dame in Paris, The BasĂ­lica of La sagrada Familia in Barcelona and the Berlinerdom in BerlĂ­n. They have been to Portgual, China, Spain, Poland, Hungary, Germany, France twice and now Peru.

Both Edwards and Wise were overwhelmed by the hospitality of fellow Rotarians, including Lima club president Dario Gastelo. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The entire tour was a great success with large audiences of school children and adults throughout the week. One of the highlights was the trip to Machu Picchu, an ancient Incan ceremonial site which has been named a World Heritage Site by UNESCO,â&#x20AC;? Edwards said. â&#x2013;

Real estate sales continue steady climb By Sherry Witt Historically, March has been the month when real estate and lending activity picks up after slumbering through the cold winter. While Witt the surge this year was not quite as pronounced as the one from 2015, it nonetheless provided evidence that local markets are continuing to move forward. The month ending on March 31 produced 991 property transfers in Knox County, which was well ahead of Februaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s pace of 843, but just short of March 2015 levels when 1,025 parcels changed hands. The aggregate value of property sold in March was also slightly under last yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s total, but did surpass the February figures by about $18 million. In March, about $198 million worth of real estate was transferred in Knox County, compared to $221 million in March of last year. Mortgage lending in-

creased from last month, but only by about $11 million. Approximately $291 million was loaned against real estate during March. Last March saw just over $342 million in mortgage loans and refi nancing. There were two commercial property sales of note. One involved the transfer of a residential complex known as The Elements at Cedar Bluff, which sold for just under $6.8 million. The other was the sale of the Sunflower Apartments located off Middlebrook Pike for $7.1 million. The largest mortgage recorded in March was $10.8 million, financing units in The Tennessean Condominium near the Worldâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Fair Park. Overall analysis of the first quarterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s activity looks similar â&#x20AC;&#x201C; but better â&#x20AC;&#x201C; than that of last year. January through March has produced 2,495 property transfers this year, compared to 2,193 during the first three months of 2015. This quarter has seen about $531 million worth of land sold in Knox County, some $16 million ahead of the 2015 first quarter levels.

Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edge close to launch By Betsy Pickle kl One of the South Waterfrontâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s most intensely questioned and closely watched new residential projects is nearly complete, and the reality sets a high standard for future development along the south side of the Tennessee River. Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edge Apartments, 1701 Island Home Ave., is sprinting toward its finish after several years of neighborhood concerns and many months of construction and road closures. There will be an open house 12-7 p.m. Friday, April 29, and 11 a.m.-5 p.m. Saturday, April 30, with a move-in date of May 31. â&#x20AC;&#x153;People can come by, look at units, have a beer with us and hang out,â&#x20AC;? says Mark Taylor, president of Dominion Development Group, which constructed and is managing the property. The beer will come from Alliance Brewing Co. on nearby

Sevier Avenue. Riverâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Edge is offering a couple of promotions for early birds. The first 50 people to move in â&#x20AC;&#x153;get a pretty significant discountâ&#x20AC;? off the first monthâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s rent, Taylor says. The first 100 people to move in will receive a Legacy Parks membership for a year. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Weâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;re excited about getting this place full and vibrant quickly,â&#x20AC;? he says. Several apartments have already been reserved. The leasing office will be open 9 a.m.-5 p.m. Monday-Friday and 10 a.m.-12 Saturdays beginning Monday, May 2. The first of the 134 units should be ready by late April or early May, and the rest should be done by the middle of June. During a tour for the Shopper last Friday, Taylor explained how DDG built up the land for the riverwalk across the street, which will be completed after the five apartment buildings are finished. The concrete-decked

walk will be up to 60 feet wide in some places, with plenty of room for pedestrians and bicyclists. There will be benches and seating areas and some river access. The developers are building the riverwalk to the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s specifications. In keeping with South Waterfront code, all the utilities are underground. With downtown and the heart of the University of Tennessee campus just a 10-minute bike ride away, Taylor believes that the complex will appeal to those who like the downtown vibe but at a lower price. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With where rents are going downtown and close to downtown, we saw this as â&#x20AC;Ś an area that will draw a more diverse crowd who still likes an urban lifestyle and wants to be connected to downtown and also with whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on in the Urban Wilderness. You get the best of both worlds.â&#x20AC;? Around 80 of the units are two bedroom, with another 45 or so one bedroom

Hope for the Lakota By Nancy Anderson West Towne Christian Church members held their annual Wheels and Deals fundraiser on April 9. While the â&#x20AC;&#x153;wheelsâ&#x20AC;? portion suffered in numbers (down nearly 20 entries from last year due to biting cold) the â&#x20AC;&#x153;dealsâ&#x20AC;? portion (held in the gym) drew an estimated crowd of over 1,000. Proceeds will help cover traveling expenses for a youth mission trip to the Lakota reservation in Wamblee, South Dakota this June. Approximately 23 teens and adults will travel two days by bus to the reservation, the most poverty-

stricken county in America. They will bring with them balls, kites, and teddy bears in an effort to lift spirits and deliver messages of hope. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Last year was our first year going and it was really kind of shocking to see the level of poverty and hopelessness these people live with every day,â&#x20AC;? said youth minister Marshall Barnett. â&#x20AC;&#x153;There are 2.2 million acres and there are only 40,000 people left, because the life expectancy is only 45 years or so. â&#x20AC;&#x153;The suicide rate is ridiculously high. Between December of 2014 and June 1 of 2015, there were nine teen suicides and over 150

attempted suicides. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With 90 percent unemployment thereâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nothing for them to strive for. Even if they do graduate from high school, there are no jobs for them. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We want them to know that whatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s going on right there immediately around them is not the end. There is something so much better out there for them if theyâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll hang on and look beyond their present circumstances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;It starts with a little bit of laughter and grows into a full-on belief that there is hope, there is a future out there for them.â&#x20AC;?

Peninsula Clothes Closet helps patients in need For Susan Bourdeau, working with clothes is a perfect fit. Bourdeau is the volunteer coordinator for the Clothes Closet at Peninsula, a division of Parkwest Medical Center, and it’s turned out to be a great way for her to use her natural talent. A wardrobe stylist and makeup artist by trade, Bourdeau has worked on video and stage projects in various areas of the southeast, most frequently in Knoxville and Miami. On a shoot for a commercial, for example, she expertly applies the actors’ make up to work with the lighting, or pulls together outfits that give them just the right “look.” “I have worked with a lot of famous people,” says Bourdeau, “I just worked with Dale (Earnhardt) Jr. for a big project, and I’ve worked with most of the HGTV cast, including Paula Deen and the House Hunters.” It’s very clear that Bourdeau enjoys her work, so when an email hit her inbox one day expressing the need for a volunteer to work with the Peninsula Clothes Closet, it was of immediate interest to her. The neighborhood volunteer who had been managing the Clothes Closet for several years was getting ready to step down. Bourdeau decided to step up. “I thought it was a wonderful opportunity, because it was right up my alley,” Bourdeau says. She also liked option of working flexible hours, and that it was close to her home. “We try to find a good match when placing volunteers in various areas, using their skills and expertise,” says Parkwest Medical Center volunteer manager Becky Boyd, “and with Susan’s background as a make-up artist and

wardrobe stylist, she’s a perfect fit for the Clothes Closet.” Bourdeau didn’t waste any time putting her talents to work. “I reorganized the entire place,” she says. “I threw everything in the floor, and started over.” Today, donated clothing hangs neatly in rows. She knows exactly where to find what needs to be found. The clothing is divided into two separate rooms at Peninsula. One room is loaded with clothing, shoes, and accessories for adults, and the second room is devoted to children. It warrants mentioning here that the Peninsula Clothes Closet is something of a hidden treasure. It doesn’t get a lot of publicity, and you probably won’t see its beneficiaries featured on the local news much. That’s because this particular charity benefits Peninsula patients in a very personal and private way. When mental health patients are at their lowest, sometimes the simplest acts of kindness can make a big difference, bringing encouragement and bolstering self-esteem. Bourdeau explains, for example, that a large number of patients at Peninsula are homeless. Donated clothing is more than just a kind gesture. It’s a deeply appreciated gift. Meanwhile, many patients who come to Peninsula are recovering from traumatic life events. A patient may have been suicidal before treatment, had a break down, or lost all connection with family and friends because of chemical dependency. To be able to walk into a room filled with clothing and walk out with something clean, in good condition, and appropriate for life

Thanks to volunteer Susan Bourdeau, neatly organized rows of clothing are ready for patients who are embarking on a new life after treatment at Peninsula.

outside the hospital is an important part of a new beginning. It’s preparation for a first step out into the real world, made a little less daunting by the kindness of strangers. Bordeau says she never knows from one day to the next what kind of donations she’s going to receive, but somehow they always turn out to be the right ones. She becomes emotional when she talks about it. “Some days I’ll have nothing,” Bourdeau says. “I’ll say a little prayer, I’ll come in, and something will be here, and it’s just the size I need.” “It makes me feel good,” Bourdeau says. “It makes me really happy.” Bourdeau is always in need of donations for the Peninsula Clothes Closet, particularly casual clothing in smaller and larger sizes. Dress clothing isn’t needed, because the primary purpose of the Clothes Closet is simply to outfit patients to return home. “I’m always looking for T-shirts, jeans, sweaters and sweats,” Bourdeau says. Clothing items for children and teenagers are needed, as well as clothing for adults. While there’s no need for dona-

tions of underclothes, shirts with built in bras for women are welcome. Shoes should be practical, easy to walk in, clean and in good condition. Donations of clothing for the Peninsula Clothes Closet can be dropped off at Peninsula, or at Parkwest Medical Center, where Boyd says this particular charity has become one that many hospital employees donate to. “When the Clothes Closet is getting low or specific items are needed, Susan gives me a call to request assistance with donations from our

Pet therapy brings smiles who have a variety of health concerns. The dogs came to Peninsula by way of H.A.B.I.T. (Human-Animal Bond in Tennessee), a nonprofit program that sponsors animal-assisted therapy. Both Cord and Jamie are rescue dogs, Cord having been adopted at six weeks, and Jamie after two long months in a shelter. “It’s quite a redemptive story for her to have come from being unwanted to now being a successful therapy dog for almost two years,” Easley says. Indeed, it is ironic that these rescue dogs are in a sense providing rescue for humans. “The response is amazing,” Easley says. “Patients frequently mention how much they are missing their own pets, and at almost every visit, at least one patient says that spending time with Cord or Jamie has been the highlight of their day.” Easley says he had known about animal-assisted therapy for years, but thought he was too busy to get involved. “At some point I just decided to make the time, and it’s been one of the better decisions I’ve made,” Easley says. “My dogs do a lot to lift me up, and I’m proud that they’re now out there doing Volunteer Brian Easley along with his dogs Cord and Jamie are much anticipated the same thing for visitors at Peninsula Hospital. others, as well.” An energetic dog bounces through the doors at Peninsula Hospital. A mixture of beagle and Jack Russell terrier, Cord is friendly by nature, and can hardly wait to spread that friendliness to patients. A combat veteran mentions that his mood is improved thanks to Cord’s visit. Later, Cord gently props his head on the wheelchair of a patient who is on oxygen. “Oh, you’re back!” she says happily. In the children’s unit, a young patient begins to have a seizure. Cord is given the job of distracting the other children, keeping them happy and calm during the crisis. Cord is one of two dogs that have become frequent visitors at Peninsula guided by volunteer Brian Easley. He also brings Jamie for visits, an Australian cattle dog mix. The dogs have a very simple mission at Peninsula – to be petted and talked to. And while it may be a simple mission, it’s also an important one. Animal assisted therapy has been shown to help reduce pain, anxiety, depression and fatigue in patients

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.


Parkwest volunteers, and donations they get!” says Boyd. “The Parkwest volunteers take this opportunity to clean out their own closets, knowing the clothing will help someone at Peninsula. It’s a win-win.” To learn more about the Peninsula Clothes Closet or how to donate, call 865-9709800. For information about volunteer opportunities at Peninsula or Parkwest Medical Center, visit treatedwell. com/volunteers, or call 865373-1556.

Cancer Support

As a service of Peninsula’s Peer Support Academy, a free-of-charge cancer support group is being offered for residents of East Tennessee. The cancer support group deals with the emotional aspects of living with cancer. Cancer survivors connect and support each other as peers with a unique insight into what living with the condition is like. The cancer support group is also open to supporters and family members of cancer survivors. The group meets on the first Tuesday evening of every month from 6:30 p.m. to 7:30 p.m. at Trinity Episcopal Church in Gatlinburg. The cancer support group uses elements of the BRIDGES (Building Recovery of Individual Dreams and Goals through Education and Support) support group training and guidelines as well as the Chronic Disease Self-Management Program. It is part of an innovative holistic approach to serving the community with unmet needs relating to emotional wellness. For more information contact Peninsula Peer Support Academies at 865-970-9800.
