FIRST WORDS Homey stay or animal house next door? By Nick Della Volpe The hot zoning topic these days is about the potential benefits and problems of Short Term Rentals (STR), more commonly referred to as AirBNBs. These include stays at a residence for a Della Volpe short weekend up to a 30-day rental. To judge by comments at the city’s April 4 neighborhood meeting to discuss the draft regulations, this is all the rage among new homesteaders interested in owning and rehabbing older neighborhood homes for such business. They argue that short-term rentals can help raise funds needed for the rehab, or to support a more leisurely lifestyle in semi-retirement. Tough questions need to be explored before Knoxville will have answers and a workable set of STR regulations. First among them is: What will this do to established single-family neighborhoods? Will this introduce a business element into bedroom communities, where residents count on quiet streets and the welcome nosiness of neighbors to keep tabs on strangers in the area and the potential for criminal activity brewing down the block? Does such commercial conduct portend the gradual breakdown of traditional zoning that separates business activity from residential – sort of mixed-use activity gone riot? Administration officials conducting the meeting also expressed concern that STR conversions may exacerbate the shortage of affordable longterm rental housing. The issues are more than theoretical. According to Deputy Mayor Bill Lyons and Codes Director Peter Ahrens, there are already over 200 AirBNBs operating in Knoxville ... an illegal use in single-family residential districts. Like Uber in the taxi/ride-share world, this idea is spreading. The administration is proposing a permit system to add a modicum of control to the present laissez-faire situation. The proposal currently requires homeowners to live in the home they are attempting to rent on a short-term basis (Type 1 permit). They would apply for a permit, pay a modest $70 fee, collect hotel and sales taxes, and be responsible to have someone on call within To page A-3

Price, U.S. Army, and Daniel Foster Brown III, U.S. Air Force, of Karns were awarded the United States of America Vietnam War Commemoration Vietnam Veteran lapel pin awarded by the Secretary of Defense to recognize, thank, and honor United States military veterans who served during the Vietnam War.

Wheelin’ and dealin’ for the Lakota By Nancy Anderson
From hot rods to muscle cars and from clothes to electronics, the seventh annual “Wheels and Deals” car show and yard sale fundraiser held at West Towne Christian Church had it all plus barbecue, beautiful weather and record crowds Saturday, April 8. The car show drew 95 entries. There was a steady stream of customers to the yard sale and to the barbecue lunch sponsored by the West Towne Christian Church Holy Smokers. More than $5,000 was raised to send
members of the youth ministry on a mission trip in June to a Lakota reservation in Wamblee, S.D. “We have about 26 people going,” said Youth Minister Marshall Barnett. “It’s the poorest county in America with about 90 percent unemployment, 80 percent alcoholism rate, and just an unreal suicide rate. We just want to go and bring the word of God and play with the kids. Just bring them a little fun and give them a break from the monotony of crushing poverty.”
Barnett said with the unemployment rate so high, even if young people graduate high school, there are no jobs for them. The goal is to show the Lakota that there is life outside the reservation. “This is our third year going and our relationship with the Lakota has grown. We now sponsor many families at Christmas, write letters, and just try to help out any way we can throughout the year. We’ve fostered real relationships. To page A-3
Family’s loss becomes a cause
By Betsy Pickle
Elizabeth Psar’s daughter, Julia, has been gone almost a year, but her short life is still an inspiration. “I have derived strength from her,” says Psar, a child-advocacy lawyer whose career and personal life are primarily focused on helping children. Psar and her husband, Rado, had a “perfect” life until December 2015, when their 2½ -year-old daughter, Julia Barbara, suddenly started having balance problems. “I thought she had an inner-ear infection,” says the attorney. “It never occurred to me that she had a brain tumor.” Psar was at Juvenile Court when her husband took their daughter to the pediatrician. She remembers thinking that Julia would have to have tubes put in her ears. “That was going to be the worst thing that we were going to have to do,” she says. “That was that Monday morning, and by the evening

they’re saying she has a brainstem tumor. And then the next day they’re saying she’s going to die.” The Psars learned that their little girl had DIPG – Diffuse Intrinsic Pontine Glioma – a brainstem tumor that is inoperable and incurable. The tumor usually strikes between the ages of 5 and 7, but it can be found in younger children and teenagers. The Psar family, including son Vasil William, now 5, went to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital just before Christmas 2015 to have a port put in for the medications she would have to have. They returned home for the holiday because the doctor said that it would probably be Julia’s last Christmas. The four returned to St. Jude in January 2016. Julia had to endure a grueling regimen of radiation, chemotherapy and experimental drugs. Steroids were part of her treatment and, Psar says, had a horrific effect. Julia bore it all
bravely, but: “She just never smiled anymore, and she was a child who smiled all the time. The steroids just altered her so dramatically.” There were times when Julia seemed slightly better. But during a Make-a-Wish trip to Slovakia to visit Rado’s family, she started experiencing nausea again. Julia died in her sleep on May 17, 2016, exactly one month short of her third birthday. A few months later, Elizabeth and Rado started the Julia Barbara Foundation to raise awareness of DIPG and raise funds for research. Last month, state Sen. Doug Overbey of Maryville and state Rep. Jason Zachary of Knoxville sponsored a resolution to make May 17 DIPG Awareness Day in Tennessee. The Julia Barbara Foundation is hosting a Gala Celebrating DIPG Children at 7 p.m. Saturday, May 20, at the Women’s Basketball
WATCH BATTERY COUPON
Includes battery & installation*
Hall of Fame, 700 Hall of Fame Drive. Tickets, $60, are available on eventbrite.com. The Chillbillies, whose lineup includes Juvenile Court Judge Tim Irwin, will perform. Psar says the entire Juvenile Court team has been very supportive of her family and the foundation. It’s appropriate that the event is taking place at the Hall of Fame. One of the most high-profile DIPG victims is the late college basketball player Lauren Hill, who was inducted into the hall. Hill passed away in April 2015, but her foundation has raised millions for DIPG research and awareness. Psar says the incidence of DIPG is low – about 400 children are living with the diagnosis right now – but “that doesn’t include the children that die from it that nobody catches. It’s a very invasive tumor. It’s like a weed in your garden – it grows so quickly.” To page A-3

News from Knoxville Christian School
Graduating KCS seniors aim By Kelly Norrell
Seven graduating seniors and a postgraduate exchange student at Knoxville Christian School have announced plans for next year that are diverse and aimed at tackling world problems. All the students credit KCS for individual attention, strong relationships with teachers and vibrant opportunities. “I think what is distinctive here is the low student-teacher ratio. The individual attention I got here and the Christian aspect really helped me in my walk with the Lord. I grew in my faith,” said senior Alex Robinson. Graduates will enroll in colleges this fall that include Dartmouth College, the University of the Cumberlands, the University of Tennessee and Pellissippi State Community College. The students – Logan Adams, Ryan Goodman, Claire Khounchef, Enzo Montenotte,
Tait Phillips, Robinson, Ashley Stevenson, and Marko Zaro – took a break in their busy schedules recently to talk about their plans. Adams, who said his hobbies are “baseball and school,” will enter Dartmouth College in Hanover, N.H., to play baseball and study engineering. The talented catcher said that after playing baseball “as long as I can,” he hopes to pursue biomedical engineering. Goodman, who said he is fascinated by both aeronautics and oncology, will enter UT with plans to pursue a dual major in physics and pre-med. Khounchef, an exchange student who hails from the Bordeaux region of France, has spent about eight months at KCS as part of a gap year between high school and college. She said she would like to work in

human rights and animal rights on the international level and plans to return to Europe and study law. Montenotte will attend UT. An accomplished second baseman who once had surgery following a KCS baseball injury, Montenotte said the experience piqued his interest in anesthesiology as a career. He said he would study pre-med. Phillips, who said he would like to be an athletic director and help kids, will attend the University of the Cumberlands to play baseball and study sports management. Robinson, who has been a leader in student council and basketball, will attend UT to study criminal justice. He said

he hopes to attend law school. “I want to help the disfranchised person who doesn’t know their rights,” he said. Stevenson, a natural athlete with a particular love of volleyball (as outside hitter and middle hitter), will attend PSCC to study dental hygiene. Zaro, of Piro, Slovenia, a talented basketball player, is graduating after spending the last two years at KCS. Marko has earned a $20,000 scholarship to National Top Sports Institute in Scotland, Pa., for a year of postgraduate work in basketball and academics. He still must raise $10,000 to pay tuition and fees. He has a GoFundMe page at https://www.gofundme.com/ markos-dream. The students all expressed
concern over global problems like hunger, terrorist attacks and racial tension, and called for more tolerance among individuals. “We should let people be themselves and worry about the big things,” said Montenotte. The teens are already speaking of KCS events with nostalgia. “I got to be with kids from different parts of the world here. That was pretty cool,” said Phillips. “There aren’t a lot of cliques here. Everyone likes each other. It doesn’t matter how you look,” said Montenotte. “I’ve learned better English,” said Khounchef. I have met really cool people – students and teachers.”
“The mission of Knoxville Christian School is to develop children spiritually, emotionally, academically and physically with Jesus Christ as their standard and the Holy Bible as their foundation, preparing them to be Godly representatives in their community, church and home.” 865-966-7060

Della Volpe 45 minutes to address complaints. Type 2 permits (no owner presence required) would be available in nonresidential zones. STRs are different from long-term rentals, which bring new residents into the community. By definition, STRs bring strangers next door. Often these rentals are for weekend stays, especially during football season and festival days. Tourists and friends get to stay in a home-like setting. A nightmare vision, however, might include a half-dozen twenty-something guys drinking beer on the back porch ’til 2 a.m. amid loud talk and music ... a college dorm redux. No sleep for the neighbors ... In fairness, the converse might be true. A fam-
ily traveling through Knoxville might enjoy the quiet comfort of a home over the bustling and somewhatconfined activity in a hotel or motel lobby. In its best form, an AirBNB might introduce newcomers to the hospitality of Knoxville, possibly acting as an informal recruiting service for our hometown. My guess is it will produce both types of scenarios. How equipped is our city codes group to enforce reasonable rules scattered around the town? At the April 4 meeting, some pro-STR renters argued they should not be limited to one owner- occupied home (under a Type 1 permit). Some already owned or were contemplating buying several homes to use as

AirBNBs. “I’m semi-retired and want the added income ...” (note: a Type 2 permit does not require owner occupation.) The bigger question is: when does an occasional short-term rental become a full blown hotel business, operating in your singlefamily neighborhood? When does the “operator’s” claim to property rights clash with the neighbors’ right to quiet enjoyment of their home? These are open questions. The city law department is revising the draft rules aired in April. MPC will tackle the proposal in May, followed by City Council review in June. Neighborhoods need to stay involved to help balance and shape the proposal.

Church of the Savior celebrates Appalachia Fest By Carol Z. Shane
Many members of Church of the Savior, United Church of Christ (COS) had a fine time recently when they held a lively Appalachia Fest. According to the church’s newsletter, it’s “a celebration of the beauty, culture, creativity and cuisine of the Appalachian region and her people through music, poetry, stories and good food.” “The food was great!” says longtime church member Alice Torbett. “Updated down-home!” In fact, several contests were centered around the food, including one for Apple-Based Dessert. It was won by Pat Chastain. “My fresh apple cake with

What if James Madison were on Twitter? By Kip Oswald
James Madison might have been the fourth president of the United States, but I found that most people I inter v iewed for this article either didn’t know Kip or didn’t remember who he was even if they had taken American history classes. So Kinzy and I found some very fun and interesting facts to help us remember him and his wife, Dolly. Wife Dolly actually planned the first presidential inaugural ball! Madison, however, was very shy, which may have been because he was so small. He was the shortest president we have ever had at barely 5 feet, 4 inches tall and only 100 pounds, which may be why he didn’t like to wear the traditional pants called knee breeches. He was the first president to wear long pants instead. He was also the first president who had also been a member of Congress. His time in Congress and as president was quite interesting, though. He was known as the Father of the Constitution for all the work he did to write and pass our Constitution. He was also the first and only president ever to lead the troops into battle when he declared war on Britain. Two years later,
the British burned Washington, D.C., including the White House. While they were burning the house, troops found and ate the president’s meal on the dining table as it was left when everyone had escaped the White House. His wife, Dolly, stayed in the White House as the British were burning it so she could rescue the portrait of George Washington. He was a very popular president when he left office. Possible tweets from President Madison could be: James Madison @ FatheroftheConstitution I was arrested in Vermont when Thomas Jefferson and I went for a carriage ride on a Sunday afternoon, which just happened to be against the law in Vermont. James Madison @ FatheroftheConstitution My face was on the $5,000 bill, but the government stopped making them in 1945! James Madison @ FatheroftheConstitution My famous quote will be: “All men having power ought to be mistrusted.” James Madison @ FatheroftheConstitution I am an original trustee of the University of Virginia and left most of my personal library to the school! James Madison @ FatheroftheConstitution My last words were “I always talk better lying down.” Send comments to oswalds email@example.com

The Lamb who lives The next day John [the Baptist] again was standing with two of his disciples, and as he watched Jesus walk by, he exclaimed, “Look, here is the Lamb of God!” (John 1: 35-36 NRSV) The Easter story never gets old. It is as amazing and startling and breathtaking today as when the stone was first rolled away from the tomb. Christians the world over rejoice again, celebrate anew, proclaim with wonder, “He is alive!” This season is the most joyous and celebrative season of the Christian year. Even the readings that take us through the weeks between Easter and Pentecost are taken from the Acts of the Apostles rather than the Old Testament, because the early church, empowered by the Holy Spirit, is the best witness to the Resurrection. There are those who say that when Christmas is over, it is really over, because of the let-down from celebration, as well as the cleaning and putting away of decorations and carol books and the temptations of finishing off the Christmas cookies. (I know who you are!) But the Resurrection of Jesus is a whole ’nother
thing. Even the resurrection of Lazarus was only a temporary reprieve. Jesus, however, was resurrected to live forever! We can’t explain it. We can only believe it. The disciples (that bunch of craven cowards who deserted Jesus when the going got tough) rallied eventually (except, of course, Judas, who repented by committing suicide) and went all over most of the (then) known world telling the amazing story. It saddens me when the only celebration some people want at Easter is an egg hunt. (I am not opposed to egg hunts; I have been to many of them! But how about let’s keep the main thing the main thing?) Happy Easter! Hallelujah!

One of the country’s most distinguished Civil War historians, Dr. James I. “Bud” Robertson Jr., will address the Knoxville Civil War Round Table on May 9 on “The Four-Legged Soldier in the Civil War.” Robertson will speak to the critical role played by horses and mules in the war, far more of whom died than did humans, and to the invaluable role played by regimental mascots in boosting the morale and lifting the spirits of soldiers on both sides. Robertson is the author or editor of more than 25 books on the Civil War. He Robertson served as executive director of the U.S. Civil War Centennial Commission in the 1960s and worked with Presidents John F. Kennedy and Lyndon B. Johnson in commemorating the war’s 100th anniversary. He then taught 44 years at Virginia Tech before retiring in 2011 as Alumni Distinguished Professor Emeritus of History.

Let Us Help You Build a Safety Nest HARDIN VALLEY
Imagine having a bunch of young kids in the kitchen cooking a full meal from scratch, and you’ll know what a typical day is like for Chef John Alunni. As the owner and chef instructor of The Cutting Edge Classroom, Alunni holds “cooking camps” where kids learn basics and prepare a meal under his guidance. It’s hands-on, so the kids watch, participate and eat the finished food. On the day the Shopper visited, a group of five arrived for the three-hour class. Outfitted with aprons and hats, they learned the first rule of food preparation – wash your hands! Soon the kitchen was bustling; water boiling for potatoes, bacon cooking and eggs cracked for scrambling. Alunni’s introduction to the culinary arts began early; “I grew up Italian,” he says, “so I started in the kitchen when I was 2 years old. Pots and pans were my toys.” Working in restaurants over the years, he earned a bachelor’s degree

in hospitality management from UT, and went on to receive his master’s in educational psychology. Teaching followed, including stints at Pellissippi State Community College and Tennessee Technological University. He’s certified with the National Restaurant Association as a ServSafe instructor and exam proctor, so safety and sanitation are two things he emphasizes in classes. Putting his students at ease helps demystify the process, especially for kids. Patient and relaxed in the kitchen, Alunni makes learning fun. His wife, Janna, takes care of the business side, and together they keep things cooking. “Schools don’t offer home economics anymore, so we felt a need was there,” she says. It’s not just for kids; adult classes are offered for basic knife skills, making sauces and learning about different cuisines and preparation methods. “Friday night is ‘date night’ for couples,” says Janna. “They can bring in wine, have an evening out and take home techniques to use in their own kitchens.” Companies arrange teambuilding classes that can be tailored to specific groups, like when the Knoxville Ice Bears team showed up to cook and eat. “That was a fun night,” says Alunni, “a great bunch of guys, and they really got into the whole process.”

The real Andy Holt Maybe the early Seventies weren’t the best of times to be a student at the University of Tennessee, but anybody with a functioning brain knew that the rattiest booth at the Roman Room was infinitely preferable to the accommodations at Fort Polk, Louisiana – AKA Fort Puke, next stop Vietnam. Protesters and selfproclaimed freaks faced off against YAFFers (Young Americans for Freedom) and the specter of war shadowed us everywhere. Nevertheless, lots of students liked Andy Holt, even though many weren’t crazy about some of the UT president’s old-school, paternalistic ways, particularly the time he invited Billy Graham to preach in Neyland Stadium and bring noted theologian Richard Nixon along, too. A World War II veteran born in 1904 (which means
Betty Bean he enlisted even though he was well past draft age), he’d lived through two world wars and had a different perspective on life than did most Boomers. There were things about him that gave conservatives the willies, too. He’d been executive director of the Tennessee Education Association, president of the National Education Association and had chaired the U.S. Delegation to the World Organization of the Teaching Profession in Switzerland. Think that resume would get anybody appointed UT president nowadays? The Real Andy Holt advocated ending segregation and
defended one of my old history professors who came under fire for his association with the Highlander Center, which also entertained Martin Luther King Jr. and Rosa Parks. Later, students walking along Cumberland Avenue waved at him when he’d come chugging by in the orange Volkswagen UT alumni gave him when he retired (his wife got a white Mercedes). Often as not he’d stop and give somebody a lift to class. Storied acts of kindness too habitual to be random circulated widely. In those days, the president of Real Andy Holt Photo courtesy of UT was the the University of Tennessee
most popular person in Knoxville, probably in the state. Imagine that. So when a West Tennessee pig farmer/state legislator named Andy Holt started
Four new state senators? Possibly When state Sen. Mark Green is confirmed as the new Secretary of the Army (probably this summer) he must resign his state Senate seat, which triggers a special election to fill it until his term ends in 2020. Montgomery County Commission will appoint an interim senator for four months. State Sen. Mark Norris, current majority leader, is widely mentioned as a new federal judge in Memphis, which would remove him from the governor’s race. He is 62 – older than what the Trump administration is looking for in new federal judges – but he has influential backers and could be tapped. State Sen. Doug Overbey, 62, who had been mentioned as a candidate for gov-
ernor, appears to have shifted his interest to the U.S. attorney position here in East Tennessee, while Jeff Hagood, who had previously expressed interest, appears to have considered the cut in pay he would incur if he were appointed. He may be interested in a position on the TVA board, which has three openings at present and two more in 2018. Should state Sen. Ken Yager be appointed to the TVA board, there is unsettled opinion on whether he can hold both offices. Yager
seems committed to staying in the state Senate if forced to make a choice. All are very able senators who have made their mark. So it is possible that there are four Senate vacancies this year (clearly one) triggering four special elections for the Senate and four new Senators by 2018. This comes on top of the November 2016 statewide election, in which there was only one change in the Senate. The only sure election will be for the Green seat once he is confirmed. ■■ House Speaker Beth Harwell is giving Gov.

Also complicating the issue are the outnumbered Democrats who will decide whether this passes the House or not, since GOP members are badly split.

Ed and Bob feel that going out to the citizens eases the strain on those who, because of work, commitments, financial situation or the distance to the City-County Building, cannot attend regular commission meetings.

News from Rather & Kittrell
Getting to your goals By Jeff Hall, CFP® In the fall of 1990, I began my last season of junior high football. We always began, and ended, the season playing our cross-town rival. Though the season was just starting, this particular game was an important one to us. Up to that point, I had never missed a field goal or an extra point in a game; however, if Jeff Hall, CFP® you kick footballs long enough, you’ll have your share of misses and unfortunately, my first miss came that Thursday night. We scored first, going up 6-0, and as I trotted onto the field for the extra point, I had plenty of confidence and expectation that the ball would fly right through the uprights like always … but then it didn’t. I shanked the ball about as badly as one could. Had it been kicked straight, it wouldn’t have made it over the line of scrimmage. I was only 14 at the time and now as a husband, father and business owner, I recognize that life is full of so much more than a missed extra point; however, I will never forget the feeling I felt as I watched the officials signal that the kick was no good. I was surprised. I began questioning what I did wrong. I wondered if I should change my technique. I was embarrassed. Worst of all, I was devastated. The current bull market in stocks is over 8 years old now … one of the longest runs on record. Though investors lost plenty during the last financial crisis, U.S. stock markets have more than tripled since we hit the bottom on March 9, 2009. For some, the last correction is a distant memory, and new investors have never experienced such as shock. However, the stock market will correct downward and we’re not prepared, then we’ll feel much the same as I did that early fall evening of 1990
… surprised, wondering what we did wrong or whether we should change something, feeling embarrassed or maybe even devastated. Recessions and capital market corrections are a function of a capitalistic economy. We would do ourselves a good service if we remember that when the next crisis occurs. Before that happens, though, there are a few good steps we can take to prepare ourselves beforehand.
the short term, a little in the medium term and nothing over the long term. Winning a football game carries with it a huge sense of pride for everyone on the team. Winning with your investments through a well-crafted plan carries a different sort of pride, a sense of confidence, and the welcome feeling of peace of mind. Both are great feelings!
■ You may know WHAT you want from your money, but a better question is WHY? If you know the WHY, then you can deal with almost any HOW, including sticking with an investment plan through challenging times. ■ Returns in the capital markets don’t come without risk … unless you get lucky or are doing something illegal. Once you’ve established a return necessary to reach your goals, it’s important to understand how much downside risk you’re exposed to in order to get that return. ■ Finally, monitor the portfolio periodically to see if it needs to be rebalanced, which is another way of selling some investments high and buying others low. This is a reasonable way of maintaining the integrity of your asset allocation between stocks and bond. Money manager Jeremy Grantham was quoted during the most recent financial crisis as saying that we will learn a lot in
