Faith from sorrow Dawn McGuire was pregnant with her third baby when her life changed forever. After having two healthy baby boys, Dawn and Kevin McGuire were overjoyed to find out she was expecting a girl. “I asked people to pray that Jena would come to know Jesus at a young age and that I would be able to share Jesus with the doctors and nurses.” McGuire would find both prayers answered in the following months.

Beaver Creek grant-funded projects complete By Jake Mabe Projects along Beaver Creek funded by a $919,000 “clean water” grant secured in 2008 have been completed. Knox County watershed coordinator Roy Arthur, who is the grant’s project manager through the Beaver Creek Task Force, says the grant was awarded through the Tennessee Department of Agriculture’s 319 grant program. “Every state gets an allotment every year and the state decides how to allot it,” Arthur says. “This grant was run through UT and the Tennessee Water Resources Research Center, who was the administrator. We focused on sediment reduction into Beaver Creek.” Partners included Knox County Stormwater, Hallsdale Powell Utility District, the Tennessee Water Resources Research Center and other UT departments and,

early on, TVA. Arthur said a watershed plan was created to focus on three areas – runoff from agriculture, stream bank erosion and sediment input from residential areas. “We did not address construction runoff. That is handled by Knox County Stormwater.” Arthur says a major component was community engagement/education. “These included, for students, the Adopt-A-Watershed program in six schools on or near Beaver Creek (Gibbs High, Halls High, Powell Middle, Powell High, Karns High and Hardin Valley Academy), and for adults, we held a variety of programs that focused on more specific areas rather than just general watershed education.” The agriculture runoff portion of the plan included fi xing pasture input problems on 23 farms along

Beaver Creek from Gibbs to Solway. “We also held farmers’ breakfasts for education purposes and the last one we held was attended by 120 people.” The stream bank erosion portion of the plan included the signature project of fixing major erosion along Beaver Creek in Mill Run subdivision in Halls as well as creating a 3,500-foot riparian zone. The residential portion of the plan was undertaken in cooperation with Knox County Stormwater’s Environmental Stewardship Program. Arthur says it included installing 23 rain gardens in residential areas designed to capture and infiltrate the first one inch of rain off of 1,000 square feet of a roof top. “Eroding ditches (3,000 feet) were also turned into grass-lined swells, and we fi xed 2,000 square

feet of bank erosion problems, including on school property.” The last two projects funded by the grant are the cistern system installed this summer at Halls High School’s greenhouse and the Harrell Road Stormwater Park, which is still under construction. At the latter, Arthur says 1,700 feet of 18inch pipe was installed to reroute stormwater from Painter Farms subdivision through a created wetland pond, rerouting 355,000 gallons of water in a one-inch rain. “Before, all of that was going straight into the creek. Now, it’s filtered into ponds. These projects are all designed to provide some flood mitigation. Because we don’t have a large swath of land anywhere along Beaver Creek, we have to create storage on a small scale wherever we can. The more we can put into storage, the more it’s going to help prevent flooding.”

Tennova project delayed, Pavlis sets public hearing By Sandra Clark Knoxville City Council has delayed rezoning land on Middlebrook Pike near West Hills subdivision where Tennova wants to build its flagship hospital. The project would result in the closure of the old St. Mary’s Hospital in North Knoxville. The vote is now set for Sept. 17. Knoxville Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis has set a council workshop for 5 p.m Thursday, Aug. 29, in the Main Assembly Room, City County Building. Rocky Swingle spoke on behalf of opponents: “This is a serious issue that deserves full discussion.” Wesley Neighbors Community Association voted 91-7 against

the hospital, Swingle said, even though Tennova has met numerous times with residents and has made several concessions to minimize the impact on residents. “We’ve got 200 yard signs up in West Hills and 300 names on our petition (against the project),” Swingle told the council. “Yes, it’s a $300 million investment by Tennova and several temporary (construction) jobs and increased taxes, but those taxes and temporary jobs are not free. “The biggest cost is the closure of St. Mary’s, followed by the diminution of the quality of life in West Knoxville.” He asked council to fund both a traffic and environmental impact study.

MPC Director Mark Donaldson said a “thorough traffic study, the most intensive study our rules permit,” will be required at Tennova’s expense. Attorney John King said his client, Tennova, did not want a postponement because “time is money.” Tennova has been “very communicative with multiple meetings,” King said, and had hoped for just a two-week delay (because the district’s council member, Duane Grieve, was out of town). City Council also postponed a vote on proposed apartments at Northshore Town Center until Sept. 3. Rezoning for Westwood on Kingston Pike (new home of Knox Heritage) was approved.

New volleyball academy in Karns By Nancy Anderson Knoxville Volleyball Academy is preparing to open its new facility in Karns early this fall. Director David McGinnis and assistant Joe Fiore are designing programs suitable for highly competitive club players as well as recreational athletes. “We want to inspire young athletes between the ages of 7-18 to perform well on the volleyball court and

to go on to become confident successful young adults,” said McGinnis. “And we’re really proud to be the new home of CBFO volleyball,” added Fiore. The academy will hold six courts, a locker room, concessions and training area. KVA is thinking big. Future plans include the addition of interior courts and several outdoor sand courts. Located at 2648 Byington-Solway Road, the mas-

sive interior space (formerly a potato chip factory) is still under renovation, but court tiles are in-house, concession equipment has been ordered, and the first middle school game is slated for Aug. 20. Middle school aged kids enjoy competitive volleyball, and it’s fun. And soon they will have a place to train and play. What more could the community ask?

Haslam is decider on parkway extension City Council member Duane Grieve, along with his wife, Marsha, attended their youngest daughter’s wedding Aug. 4 at Dogwood Canyon in Missouri. Carlyn Grieve, 24, married John Robinson and they will reside in Austin, Texas, where Carlyn works at Scripps. Grieve, who is unopposed in his current council reelection campaign, gave away the bride.

City Council member Marshall Stair spent a week hiking and camping in the Cascade Mountains of the state of Washington with his younger brother, Morgan. Stair is an active hiker and canoeist. ■ Starke: Mayor Rogero told City Council in an Aug. 7 email that Angela Starke, director of communications, would be leaving at the end of the year to join her husband, Drew, who is moving to Orlando to work for Nissan North America. This is the second high-level departure for Rogero in less than two years. Deputy Mayor Eddie Mannis left in June. Already there is speculation that Jesse Mayshark (who makes $40,000 less than Starke) may be promoted as much of the heavy lifting in that office is done by Mayshark. However, Starke is the only AfricanAmerican in the Rogero administration running an actual department (a small but significant one). Community Relations Director Tank Strickland, also African-American, is a one-man operation (but a very effective one who has worked for four mayors) who once served as chair of county commission. Strickland could become the only high level AfricanAmerican in city government, answering directly to the mayor. (Sam Anderson, who ran the Parks and Recreation department for many years, held that position under this writer, and Mayor Haslam promoted him to senior director. He retired before Haslam left the mayor’s office.) Additionally, this is the department which promotes the mayor’s agenda to the media and the public. For an administra-

tion which on occasion is viewed as quite sensitive to criticism, the new director will have his/her hands full, especially if the mayor seeks a tax increase in 2014 to fund the pension costs. Mayshark is bright and knows where many of the bodies in city government are buried and could easily handle the position. But he may not meet the diversity requirements which the mayor might want as she prepares for her 2015 re-election campaign. ■ TDOT: The failure of the state Department of Transportation to announce a decision on the extension of the James White Parkway into south Knox County has allowed the Commissioner of Transportation, John Schroer, time to try to convince some local officials to support the extension despite heavy opposition at a public hearing months ago led by Mayor Rogero, Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis and county Mayor Tim Burchett. A decision is already behind schedule due to Schroer’s efforts to change public opinion. Schroer strongly favors the plan but would be hard pressed to approve it against overwhelming local opposition. It is doubtful that Haslam would permit this to go forward with both mayors and most local officials opposed. It is also inconceivable that Schroer would make any decision on this in Haslam’s home county without the governor’s approval. The bottom line is that this battle is not over. Mayor Rogero had lunch with Haslam last Wednesday in Knoxville and Jesse Mayshark says she repeated the city’s opposition to the governor at that time. Gov. Haslam is the featured speaker Sept. 20 at the annual fundraising event for Legacy Parks Foundation, which strongly opposes the extension. Opponents should get ready to take the matter to court if the TDOT commissioner approves the build option as well as work on Knox lawmakers to deny funding for the project. The cost of this project is huge and it will be damaging to the new urban park system in south Knoxville. Mayor Rogero and Vice Mayor Pavlis have consistently opposed this wasteful project and merit commendation for their stand to promote recreation in south Knoxville along with environmental quality.

The battle over James White Parkway Burchett ‘flip-flop’ riles city officials

Over in south Knoxville, public officials may come to blows in a confrontation reminiscent of the time in 2002 when then-state Rep. H.E. Bittle threw off his coat and offered to whip TDOT Commission Bruce Saltsman over the Orange Route. That project, SR475, was designed to funnel traffic off I-40/75 through Hardin Valley and into Anderson County. It never happened, despite support from the Knoxville Chamber and others who think roads mean progress. The James White Parkway extension is a similar issue. It’s a massive undertaking, a gleam in the eyes of engineers and road builders for decades, and once intended as a way to revitalize the south side of town. The bypass from Moody Avenue to John Sevier Highway would mostly be within the city limits. It’s shorter and therefore less costly than SR475, but has some similarities. State officials cite the need to take traffic

Betty Bean off the main artery (in this case, Chapman Highway). Supporters believe it’ll be safer and better for business. Opponents disagree. Everybody’s mad. Until a few days ago, the mayors of Knoxville and Knox County were united in opposing it. Then Tim Burchett got ambushed on a Friday afternoon by a TV reporter and said he’d changed his mind about the parkway extension – if it wouldn’t hurt the homeowners in its path, although he doubted that it was going to happen at all, given that no money’s been appropriated. City leaders felt blindsided. Sources say Burchett paid Mayor Madeline Rogero a Monday morning visit to do some explaining. Appearing to have taken both sides on

the issue, Burchett was unavailable for the balance of the week to explain why. Rogero and Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis are clearly in opposition. Bill Haslam, while mayor here, never took a public stand. But the JWP extension is a huge expenditure for no good reason. A city source calls it “a slap in the face” to those who for more than a decade have been working on the Urban Wilderness, a chain of public properties that includes 10 parks, 40-plus miles of trails, four Civil War sites, water features and scenic views, some of which are directly in the path of the JWP extension. City government has collaborated with the Legacy Parks Foundation and citizen donors and volunteers like the Appalachian Mountain Bike Club, whose members have created and maintained miles of trails. They point to the Checkpoint Tracker Adventure Racing Championship as a harbinger of things to come, if the Urban Wilderness plan proceeds unmolested by a massive road-building

project. The 30-hour race requiring compasses, maps, canoes, mountain bikes, running and rappelling will draw 200 participants and their families to Knoxville from all over the county in October. The Checkpoint Tracker website dishes out the kind of praise most cities would kill for: “The unprecedented land access rights granted to facilitate this event guarantees that even those familiar with the region will be delighted and surprised. We welcome all adventure racers, from novice to battered, to join us in beautiful Knoxville, Tenn., on Oct. 10, 11 and 12 for a weekend of championship racing followed by a righteous After Party and Awards Ceremony at Market Square in downtown Knoxville.” TDOT Commissioner John Schroer seems determined to sign off on the project, although the exact route and timetable remain a mystery. And, as with SR475, approval doesn’t mean it’s going to happen.

Asked how old she is, the kid said, “Seven.” She’s really only six. “Go into reporting,” I advised. Her mom said Izzie has always loved to read. “She’s reading on fifth grade level and starting into first grade (at Thackston School).” “I really like my (book) cover,” said Hodges, a retired professor of religious studies at UT, winding up to read from his book. “This cover represents who I am. The sharecroppers’ home shows flat ground and an outhouse. That’s where I came from.” The second picture shows Hodges engaging students – a man who earned a Ph.D. from the University of Chicago, studied abroad, and challenged students for many years. The pictures illustrate the contradictions in his life. Growing up in the Mississippi Delta was tough, with uncles who gambled and a mama who gave whippings “at least once a week.” His stepfather drank on weekends and had a terrible temper. “But he gave me a most wonderful gift,” said Hodges. He offered to work twice as much to enable his son to attend school. “At age 7, we were expected to go to the (cotton) fields. But my stepfather told the boss, ‘I want my son

Lee’s old warhorse Gen. James Longstreet. (18211904). Graduation from West Point and service in the “old” army during the Mexican War prepared Longstreet for his active role during the entire Civil War (1861-1865). Photo

HISTORY AND MYSTERIES | Dr. Jim Tumblin

O

n Nov. 29, 1863, Confederate Gen. James Longstreet experienced his worst day of the Civil War in Knoxville while Union Gen. Ambrose Burnside probably experienced his best. During the Fredericksburg campaign in November and December 1862, Burnside ordered 11 ill-conceived attacks on Marye’s Heights, where Longstreet’s Corps worked the defenses. Burnside had 12,653 casualties while the Southern casualties were only 5,309. But a year later in Knoxville the results would be vastly different. James Longstreet was born the fifth child of James and Mary Ann Dent Longstreet, on Jan. 8, 1821, in the Edgefield District of South Carolina, where his mother had traveled to her mother-in-law’s home for his birth. Both of his parents, owners of a cotton plantation near Gainesville in the Piedmont section of northeastern Georgia, were descendants of families dating to the colonial period – James born in New Jersey, Mary Ann in Maryland. It had required hard physical labor and resilience for his father to carve a plantation out of the wilderness, but it provided a place for young James to develop the physique, self-confidence and work ethic that would characterize him throughout his life. Dreams of glory filled his head as he read of Julius Caesar, Napoleon and George Washington. To a practical father with a profitable farming operation but a large family, such youthful longings could be fulfilled only with the admission of his son to the United States Military Academy at West Point. In 1830, with that long-term goal in mind, “Pete” (as he was called at home) traveled with his father to Augusta, site of the state’s finest preparatory school. There he would live with Uncle Augustus B. Longstreet and his wife, so that he could enter Richmond County Academy. A graduate of Yale University and a practicing attorney, Uncle Augustus was enormously talented, a gifted conversationalist and a licensed lay speaker in the Methodist Church. James would spend the next eight years embraced as a member of the family. The formal education he received at the Richmond County Academy was enhanced by the informal one he received in the stimulating home of his aunt and uncle. He had been at Augusta only three years when his father died of cholera during a visit to Augusta. His mother decided to live permanently in Morgan County in northern Alabama. Increasingly, his uncle’s plantation became his home and Uncle Augustus and Aunt Frances received his affections. He barely mentioned

his mother in his memoirs. James Longstreet entered West Point in 1838. Academics challenged him from the outset, but he excelled with horses, sword exercise and “football.” He admitted to being the leader in “larks and games,” and his demerits reflected such common cadet sins as visiting after taps, absence from roll call, dirty room, long hair and disturbance during study hours. When he graduated in 1842, he ranked number 54 in a class of 62. However unfortunate it was that he failed to make the most of his academic opportunities, one can ask whether he redeemed himself at the Brotherton house on Sept. 2, 1863, when his troops met those of classmate Gen. William Rosecrans, who was fifth in his class, and turned the tide in the Battle of Chickamauga. At graduation Longstreet was brevetted a second lieutenant and served tours in Missouri, Louisiana and Florida. He participated in the Mexican War (1846-1848) under Gen. Zachary Taylor during the Battle of Monterey and then joined the forces of Gen. Winfield Scott for the expedition to Mexico City. Leading his troops at Chapultepec, he was wounded when hit by a musket ball in his thigh. He staggered and fell but handed the colors to Lt. George E. Pickett (who later became famous

courtesy of the Valentine Museum, Richmond, Va.

James Longstreet (1821-1904) at Gettysburg). Lt. Pickett carried the colors over the wall. The Mexican War served as a training ground for the Civil War. Longstreet’s physical stamina, skill under fluid conditions on the battlefield and bravery under fire offered unique lessons in his trade – that of a soldier. During the war Longstreet had carried a daguerreotype of Louise Garland, the daughter of Lt. Col. John Garland. After the war, in March 1848, they were married at her relatives’ home in Lynchburg, Va. He reported to duty at Carlisle Barracks, Pa., where their first of 10 children was born. He was

transferred to San Antonio, Texas, where the army’s main role was to protect settlements and wagons of immigrants moving into the state. In 1854 he was assigned to Fort Bliss near El Paso, Texas, 600 miles from San Antonio, where the garrison was responsible for protecting ranchers, farmers and townfolks from marauding Indians. On one expedition, Longstreet’s column traveled for 16 days toward the Guadeloupe Mountains in ice storms with extremely frigid temperatures as they pursued the Mescalero Apaches. Longstreet soon assumed the command at Fort Bliss and held that post until the spring of 1858. Concerned with the education of their two children, Longstreet wrote the adjutant general’s office in Washington to request recruiting duty back East, citing his 16 years of service on the frontier. Instead, leaving the two children in a boys’ preparatory school in Yonkers, N.Y., Longstreet reported for duty at Fort Leavenworth, Kan., where he served as paymaster for a year and was then transferred to his father-in-law’s department in

Albuquerque, N.M., where he arrived in 1859. South Carolina seceded in December 1860, following the election of Abraham Lincoln. They were soon followed by six other states. Longstreet had a very difficult decision to make. He did not embrace secession but he remembered his Uncle Gus and his passion for state’s rights and decided his allegiance belonged to the South. On April 12-14, 1861, the firing on and surrender of Fort Sumter signaled the beginning of the Civil War. Knowing that he was the senior officer in the Army appointed by the state of Alabama to West Point and because his mother still lived there, he wrote his friend, Alabama U.S. Rep. Curry, and Gov. Andrew Moore and offered his services. He was made a lieutenant colonel in the Confederate Army and reported for duty in Richmond on June 21, 1861. In a meeting with Confederate President Jefferson Davis, Longstreet learned he was appointed a brigadier general. Within days he was ordered to report to General P.G.T. Beauregard at Manassas Junction. Longstreet was assigned the command of three Virginia regiments and set about training them. Three times each day he coached his troops in the intricacies of regimental and brigade maneuvers. By the Battle of First Manassas (July 21, 1861) he and his regiments were sufficiently trained to acquit themselves well as they defended Blackburn’s Ford in a prelude to the battle. Thus began his service in the Civil War, service that would earn him the title “My Old War Horse” bestowed by General of the Armies, Robert E. Lee. Author’s Note. Next month’s article will continue Longstreet’s story including his “Worst Day of the War” in Knoxville in November 1863.

How fast is fast enough? We don’t know, at this play selection and snap the point, how fast is Tennessee football. Move it, move it! fast. The threat of a quick start limits defensive substitutions and adds risk to simple adjustments. It allows the team with the football Marvin to dictate pace. This is our West game, this is how we do it. Ready or not, here we come. Months of extra effort invested in strength and Based on what Butch conditioning will supposJones did at previous stops, edly give the orange (aswe think he will want his suming no major changes in Volunteers to really hurry uniforms) team an edge on on offense.

If the Vols play fast glance at the defensive alignment, check the card enough, defenders will tricks on the sideline for eventually feel the pain.

They might even get tired and make a mistake. Fatigue is a terrible affliction. Tennessee will not get tired. That has already been decided. Tennessee might cash in. We’ll see. So, how fast is Tennessee fast? Former Volunteer allAmerican Bob Johnson, hall of fame center, distinguished NFL alum, prominent Cincinnati businessman, has considerable insight into Tennessee possibilities. He has seen several years of previews. “My impression of Butch Jones is that his aggressive offense and defense match

The voice of reason When they heard this, they were enraged and wanted to kill them. But a Pharisee in the council named Gamaliel, a teacher of the law, respected by all the people, stood up and ordered the men to be put outside for a short time. Then he said to them, “Fellow Israelites, consider carefully what you propose to do to these men‌. I tell you, keep away from these men and let them alone; because if this plan or this undertaking is of human origin, it will fail; but if it is of God, you will not be able to overthrow them – in that case you may even be found fighting against God!â€? (Acts 5: 33-35, 38-39 NRSV)

Gamaliel is a Hebrew name which means “reward of God� or “God is my reward.� Gamaliel shows up only twice in the New Testament: here, where he stands up for Peter and the other apostles, using his power of reasoning, and invoking the law of unintended consequences to calm the murderous mob. Later in Acts 22: 3, he is referred to again, when Paul names him as his early teacher, saying he was

All the serious Bearcat fans really liked him. “From what I remember, the Bearcats ran a very high percentage of no-huddle – mostly shotgun – most plays started with play-action fakes – he really wants to spread the field – create chances for one on one for ball carriers. “I think the pace was a big portion of University of Cincinnati’s success. I think they out-conditioned some of their opponents.� Johnson recognizes pluses and minuses but, overall, he likes no-huddle offenses,

on his heels you could be assured that his mind was made up and that was that. At that point, it would be easier to move the Rock of Gibraltar than to change his convictions about the question at hand. Gamaliel was such a man. Gamaliel knew what was right. He recognized wrong about to happen. He also recognized foolishness when he saw it. And he was willing to stand up and be counted. That takes courage. He was able to say to an angry mob, “Think about what you are doing. Be reasonable, friends. What if you are wrong in your estimation of these men? Sure, they may be wrong. But what if they are not? What if they really are sent from God to tell you what you need to know? What if their words are the most important words you will ever hear? What then?� Gamaliel was well and truly named. He was a “reward of God,� a hero given to the children of Israel at a crucial moment.

Butch got off to a fast start. Tennessee fans were quick to forget about Jon Gruden and other pipe dreams. For most of us, recruiting hustle reduced the restoration job from awful to just difficult. The show is underway and still picking up speed. Sometime soon we’ll find out how fast is Tennessee fast – and whether it makes a difference and does it produce immediate results.

It’s all in the family. “Sam, who is a great friend of mine, was a real proponent of no-huddle. He would say that the disadvantage was that offenses had to be simplified. “Even with the large sideline signs that Butch Jones uses, formations and even play design are limited.

Can a family crisis be good for you? Yes! Sometimes God uses crises to get our attention, to question what we’re doing in our own families, and to lead us into new paths of faithful obedience, service and joy. It isn’t wise to think it won’t happen to your family or someone close to you. “The prudent see danger and take refuge, but the simple keep going and suffer for it� (Prov 27:12). We will look at some common family crises to challenge our assumptions and habits and to think in fresh ways about biblical principles, goals, and strategies for family life.

Family faith grows through sorrow By Ashley Baker Dawn McGuire was pregnant with her third baby when her life changed forever. After having two healthy baby boys, Dawn and Kevin McGuire were overjoyed to ďŹ nd out she was expecting a girl. Dawn recalled her most frequent prayer request during this time: “Most people would probably ask for a healthy baby and a smooth delivery,â€? she said. “I asked people to pray that Jena would come to know Jesus at a young age and that I would be able to share Jesus with the doctors and nurses.â€? McGuire would ďŹ nd both prayers answered in the following months. The nursery came together in the weeks prior to the birth. “I loved it!â€? Dawn said “I spent hours picking out which color of pink to use in her nursery.â€? Kevin said the room was like “a little piece of heaven.â€? What the McGuires didn’t know was that their baby girl would never get to sleep in her beautiful nursery. On Sept. 19, 2001, Dawn McGuire gave birth to her daughter, Jena Grace, who was born with a rare congenital heart defect. Baby Jena had her ďŹ rst major heart surgery at ďŹ ve weeks, followed by two other major surgeries. “As a young mom, you

But the painful experiences continued to increase. Jena’s body began to fail before she was ďŹ ve months old. “One night, they let us hold her. The nurses could tell that the end was coming. “She died in my arms that night,â€? Dawn said, with tears. On Feb. 18, 2002, she took her last breath. As she held her baby girl, Dawn said she experienced a peace that can only come from God. “You can’t fathom it,â€? she said. As Dawn and Kevin left the hospital, she realized that God had answered both of her prayers. Jena had gone to see Jesus at a young age, and Dawn had had the privilege of sharing her faith in the hospital for ďŹ ve months. “A ministry did come out of that,â€? Dawn said. “So many were touched by her story, and any time I had a chance to talk about how God is faithful, I did.â€? The “joyâ€? column continued to grow. At Jena Grace’s

funeral, Dawn’s father made a commitment to follow Christ. “It sky-rocketed me in my faith,� Dawn said. “God didn’t promise me that I would see her walk, but He did promise He would never leave me nor forsake me, and He never did.� Dawn hopes people will see that God is faithful even in times of great trial. “I love Jesus. I can’t believe what he’s done for me,� she said. “The Bible came to life during my journey, and I believed every word of it. My Jesus can heal hearts!� Dawn’s story doesn’t end with loss. Three years to the day of Jena’s death, Dawn delivered twins, one of whom was a girl she named Hope. Though Jena’s death will forever mark the McGuire family, their story is a living testimony of the faithfulness of God in times of trial. It is a reminder, said Dawn, that God can turn a great trial into a blessing – even a double blessing.

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers

Knox opens two new schools, posts gains on TCAPs

By yS Sandra andrra Clark an Dr. Jim McIntyre says he’s as enthusiastic and excited about the new school year as “any in my career.” Knox County Schools has made gains on test scores every year since McIntyre arrived as superintendent in 2008. He headed each page in a recent report with “Predominantly very good news.” I know because I kept flipping pages to find the “Predominantly less than stellar news” page. Not there. The state’s recently released TCAP and end-of-course data showed Knox County Schools: ■ Met 9 of 11 achievement targets ■ Increased 2.3 percent in 3rd grade reading/language arts proficiency (from 51.2 to 53.5 percent) ■ Gained in proficiency in 9 of 11 key achievement measures including math, science and social studies ■ Gained in 6 of 7 high school end-of-course exams including English III for the first time ■ Increased in proficiency in 25 of 31 reported subject and grade combinations. ■ Posted strong gains in Algebra I and Algebra II exams The list goes on. But McIntyre says it’s really not about test scores. Students: “It’s about doing a better job for kids. ... We want hard work and great instruction in every classroom.” He predicts a future where rote jobs are handled by machines or sent off-shore. Workers of tomorrow must excel at problem-solving and teamwork. Principals: “Being a public school principal in 2013 is an incredibly complex job,” he says. “Hiring and placing principals is the most important job I have.” McIntyre said efforts are made to engage teachers and the community when a principal’s job becomes open, but this year 25 principals were moved over the summer. “Even the Methodists give (transferred preachers) a little reception,” joked Betsy Pickle, who sat in on our interview. We advocated for a chance to say good-bye at least. “It matters deeply who the principal is,” said McIntyre, denying that his choices were in any way arbitrary or capricious. “Sometimes a retirement triggers change,” he said, citing elementary supervisor Susan Turner’s retirement, which led to Adam Parker’s promotion and Cindy Bosse’s assignment to replace Parker at A.L. Lotts Elementary. Bosse, an outstanding leader at Sterchi Elementa-

Carter Elementary School invited the whole community to cut the ribbon to open the new school on Aug. 9.

ry, was replaced by Christine Boring, who holds a master’s degree in educational technology. Sterchi is one of 11 schools that will implement 1:1 technology this year as a winner of the system’s technology challenge. Teachers: The goal of evaluations is to help teachers get better, McIntyre said, predicting excitement for the Common Core standards, which will be fully implemented this year. The Common Core has fewer requirements, enabling teachers to go more deeply into each subject. Assistant Superintendent Dr. Elizabeth Alves said subjects such as art will include more reading and lan-

guage arts, seeing “literary strands infused in those disciplines, especially in grades 6-12.” McIntyre said teachers who are ineffective are given an opportunity to improve. “Some can’t or won’t improve,” and those he recommended for termination by the school board. Four teachers were recommended for termination in August. There’s no count on the number who resigned or retired rather than face termination. In response to a question from Jake Mabe, McIntyre said there’s no way to generalize about older versus younger teachers’ acceptance of

Knox County Council PTA

technology. “It just depends on the person.” Change: Three years ago, teachers received tenure after three years and then were evaluated once every five years thereafter. Now teachers are evaluated by principals and peer teachers four to six times per year. “We’re now having ongoing conversations with teachers. We had 10,000 of those conversations last year. You have to get better (with that level of observation).” McIntyre said he’s no miracle maker. “That’s the teachers in every classroom across the district. They are the miracle makers.”

Help for those who need it from Freedom House Church

Swimmers unite By Sara Barrett For kids who miss competing in sports during the offseason, the Atomic City Aquatics Club may be a good option. The nonprofit’s members compete throughout the year, and swimmers can be of any skill level. Members compete at events held all over the Southeast, including this year’s Long Course Southern Zone Senior Eastern Sectional Championships in Athens, Ga. ACAC representative Chip Fischer said the swimmers marched through the event “like Sherman through Georgia.” Some of the most talented swimmers in the Southeast competed at the meet, and Fischer said it had to be “one of the greatest meets an ACAC senior group has ever had.” A whopping 24 of ACAC’s 36 swim times ranked the best during the event. Fischer said the team’s head coach, Michael Bowman, was pretty fired up after the meet.

“This meet brought together some of the largest and most talented teams in the nation,” said Bowman. “For a team of our size to be represented by 7 swimmers at this advanced level is an impressive feat and a testament to this group of swimmers.” “This performance will inspire our entire team, and coaches, to maintain a culture that builds champions. We expect big things in the years to come,” he said. In addition to dedication and hard work, the team’s coaches – who are all members of the American Swimming Coaches Association – also make a point to teach their swimmers to have fun in the process. ACAC will register new members for the 2013-2014 swim season beginning at 9:30 a.m. Saturday, Sept. 7, at the Oak Ridge Civic Center. Veteran swimmers can sign up 9-11 a.m. Saturday, Aug. 24, also the ORCC. Info: www.swim4acac.com.

When families are packing the school aisles at Walmart and buying new clothes to prepare for the upcoming school year, members of Freedom House Church on Lovell Road are gearing up for a clothing giveaway to help anyone in the community who might need it. The Grateful Heart Ministry, directed by Karen Hare, was started about four years ago to help families who might not be able to afford brand new items from a store. Gently used clothing of every size is available in addition to some school supplies and household items. The ministry hosts the giveaway 2-3 times per year, and donations are gladly accepted throughout the year. Church volunteer Judy Cleaver said the ministry hosts a rummage sale in

July to raise money for items such as socks and underwear that really should be purchased from the store. So, if something is donated to the church that isn’t given away to a family in need, it is recycled through the rummage sale and sold to raise money.

Freedom House has also partnered with Ball Camp Elementary School to help its students and families any time of the year with whatever they may need, including food. For more information on how to help or how to receive assistance, call 966-0455.

Plumbing feature Drip, drip, drip… We all know that sound. That sound that lets you know you’re wastin’ your money all night and day. And better yet, we know the sound of your disposal exploding at the worst possible time. When that happens I always seem to give the job of “fixer” to my husband, with it resulting in a bigger problem than we started with. After years of poor choices, I have learned to hand some jobs off to the professionals. No more water spouts for me– I’ve got some friends on the loose to take care of all my plumbing repairs; with my energy and bank account not takin’ a lickin’. Hiring one of my friends means that I can schedule an appointment or call them when an emergency comes about. One tiny leak can result in thousands of dollars out the door if it’s not fixed right. And let’s face it: I don’t have any knowledge on the technical aspects of plumbing, but I can help you find something that is timeless and pretty! Avoid the hassle, don’t drip and drop a dime! Call my plumbing friend extraordinaire. Tell ’em Millie sent you!

By Anne Hart When you do business with Modern Supply, you get more than a huge showroom full of the latest in beautiful items for your kitchen, bathroom and other areas of your home, including cabinetry, fixtures, lighting, mirrors and other articles. You can also get plenty of things that are necessary but not quite so glamorous, like water heaters and toilets. And you get the company’s sales people and their experts in many fields who are always available to help you put your dreams on paper and then see those dreams come to fruition. Yes. You get all of that. But if you’re really lucky you’ll also get their list. That’s right. Their list. The folks at Modern Supply keep a list of the best licensed, insured, professional service people in town and they gladly refer those folks to their customers. Three of their favorite plumbing companies are Brogdon Plumbing, Eidemiller Plumbing and Donnie Haun Plumbing. It can be easy to overlook the quality of life issues offered by good plumbers. Think about it: did you know that 80 percent of water damage

generation waiting in the wings. That would be Josef Brogdon, son of Mike Brogdon, whose grandfather started the company in 1937. Mike’s dad, Bill Brogdon, ran things until Mike took over a few years ago. Mike says he couldn’t run the business without his wife, Tina, who runs errands picking up supplies and making deliveries and also manages the office. The company runs six vehicles and has 10 employees. Brogdon’s connection with Modern Supply is especially strong. Three generations of his family have done plumbing business with two generations of the family of the company’s present owner, Pace Robinson.

His wife, Leigh Aynne, works as the company’s chief financial officer while she and her husband raise two children, Evan, who is nine and Ellen, six. The company has three service trucks, appropriately named, Eidemiller says, “because we’re delivering service.

Technology Access Center aids those with disabilities The East Tennessee Technology Access Center (ETTAC) was started in 1998 by parents, adults with disabilities, service providers and business people who believed technology could help people with disabilities reach their goals. The organization provides assistive technology for people with disabilities. Speaking to West Knox Rotary last week, Dr. Lois Symington, the center’s director, said the organization worked with more than 3,000 people last year, adding that more than 20 percent of the population has learning disabilities, 70 percent of those with learning disabilities are unemployed and most never finish high school. Among the many offerings of ETTAC are the literacy services, which include

device and software demonstrations, i nd i v idu a l training and assistance, loan of equipment and software, par ticipation in the Symington E T T A C reading lab, education and motion classes and Next Chapter book clubs. ETTAC also provides services to business owners. Dr. Symington described one such person who has a learning disability that affects his ability to read and write things such as invoices and receipts. With ETTAC’s help, he has learned to use software that enables him to read and write, and as a result he is currently

She pointed out that $100 will cover workshop costs for seniors, teachers, parents and people with disabilities. In addition, $25 will adapt one toy to be given to a child with a disability at the annual Toy Tech Holiday Party. ETTAC will hold a fundraiser on Friday, Oct. 4, for their HeartSong Center for Accessible Music and Art, which helps children with disabilities.

Performers must have one more skill, in addition to their musical or drama talents, KnoxCAM director Dr. Jill Lagerberg points out. “We are looking for people who want to use their gifts in a Christian ministry to proclaim the gospel in a way that draws attention to the Glory of God and not to ourselves.”

That’s an important distinction. The audiences for this organization are not the usual. Performers will be visiting jails, prisons and homeless shelters, and also playing for elderly people and for others who have been abused or are ill. Those auditioning should be prepared.

N EWS FROM PARKWEST, WEST KNOXVILLE ’ S H EALTHCARE LEADER • T REATED WELL .COM • 374-PARK

Peninsula Hospital executive discusses impact of community-based mental healthcare on Knoxville area In November 2011, Peninsula, a division of Parkwest, learned that the organization would soon face an unprecedented challenge: Lakeshore, a state-funded mental health institute, would be closing its doors for good, and the majority of patients would funnel into Peninsula Hospital. The closing was a strategic move by the state Department of Mental Health to follow the national trend in moving toward communitybased care and away from state-funded care. “Commissioner (Doug) Varney announced that Lakeshore would reduce admissions starting in January of 2012, and then by the end of June, the facility would completely close,” recalls Peninsula Vice President Liz Clary. “We had to find a way to accommodate the influx in hospital admissions so that we could care for the mental health patients who need us most.” The state official’s announcement was met with reserve by members of the community who feared their loved ones would not be able to get the treatment they needed, but also a guarded view was held by the hospital being asked to take on the lion’s share of Lakeshore patients. “It was challenging to not only have more patients, but, on average, patients with a higher acuity level,” Clary says. “It meant that capital investments were needed, and some changes in staffing and the way we did things. However, I am proud to say with support from Covenant Health and the efforts of our employees, Peninsula Hospital has risen to the occasion.” By “higher acuity level,” Clary means patients who have some of the most serious and complex mental diagnoses. Despite this, Peninsula not only has risen to the occasion, but has continued to excel in caring for some of the area’s most dire patients throughout the transition. With a multi-professional team comprised of experienced people from across the continuum of mental healthcare, a plan was laid out which identified the challenges, predicted the potential problems and got the job done. “We learned that creating a smooth admission process was paramount, and we’ve made great strides,” Clary explains. “We have also been able to improve service by decreasing the amount of time it takes to process a patient from a hospital emergency department to ar-

In a serene setting along the Tennessee River, Peninsula Hospital provides psychiatric care to thousands of patients annually, including many with serious and complex mental diagnoses. rival at Peninsula Hospital by about a third,” Clary said. “We offer high quality care in a safe, therapeutic environment,” Clary says. “So do other places. Our goal then becomes improving customer service without sacrificing quality.” On average, Peninsula Hospital serves about a dozen more inpatients per day since Lakeshore closed. Even with the additional volume, Peninsula has been able to increase its customer satisfaction score and maintain or improve its performance in safety quality measures. “Many of the changes which resulted in taking the patients from Lakeshore translated to better service for our patients,” she continues. “For example, an internal process to enroll patients into CoverRX has been developed.” CoverRx is the state-funded program for prescription coverage. Within the first year, 1,000 patients had been assessed for potential enrollment at Peninsula. As Clary looks back at the past year, she points to increased collaborative efforts within the community such as the regular meetings with a community providers group including representatives from local law enforcement, hospital emergency departments, mobile crisis and a state mental health facility. The group

works on the continuum of services for behavioral health patients in the area. “Peninsula participates in the Crisis Intervention Training (CIT) for officers from the surrounding areas’ police and sheriff’s offices,” she says. “It’s a simple thing, but it facilitates understanding about mental illness, and when that happens, patients benefit.” “It takes a huge village to care for these patients,” she says. “We’ve built bridges, paved paths and strengthened some relationships to do that.” “When Commissioner Varney said he wanted to partner with us for community-based care of mental health patients, it was just as much about making things better for the patient as it was a cost-saving measure for the state,” says Clary. Clary sees it as a true partnership with the state and anticipates even more positive changes in the future. “Because of the state’s involvement, Peninsula is able to provide things like transportation and medication in ways that weren’t options before,” she says. Clary also points to the increased rate of outpatients who are keeping their first appointments, and a lower number of readmissions.

Liz Clary “I really celebrate that these patients are receiving better care,” she proclaims. “They deserve it.” Once you get past her talk of bricks-andmortar improvements, the supplemental staffing and the processes of running an efficient hospital, you find that while Clary is proud of the accomplishments of the past year, she is most passionate about something else. It’s the rare commodity that Peninsula offers to East Tennessee patients and their families, and which must be preserved regardless of how delivery care modules change. “It’s hope,” she says with a smile. “Simply hope.” In additional to the 155-bed inpatient psychiatric hospital in Blount County, Peninsula also has outpatient facilities in Knox, Blount, Loudon and Sevier counties. You can find out more about Peninsula by visiting www.peninsualbehavioralhealth.org.

Mental illness is the leading cause of disability in the United States. Something as seemingly simple as an empty nest at home or adjusting to the demands of a new job can trigger depression or anxiety, deeply affecting us and keeping us from living productive lives. One in four American adults suffers from a diagnosable mental illness, but nearly two-thirds of them will choose not to seek treatment. Despite decades of education and increased awareness, the stigma remains. While awareness has increased, Peninsula Vice President Liz Clary says our society is still struggling with acceptance of the mentally ill. “It’s unfortunate when someone in your family is diagnosed with cancer, but you can talk through that with family and friends,” Clary says. “You can’t always do that with mental illness. It’s very sad, but many people still see it as a weakness and try to hide it.” It’s not just sad for those who are suffering. Clary says it’s sad for

the community as a whole, because getting treatment for mental illness means putting more people to work, keeping people off the streets and creating a more productive society.

The good news is that 80 percent of the people who seek treatment for mental illness do improve. Clary says there have also been tremendous advances in medications with fewer side effects. “Sometimes our staff members will tell patients, ‘I will hold hope for you until you can do it for yourself,’ ” says Clary. “I’ve always been touched by that statement, because we do hold hope for those who can’t. It’s so, so

important when someone is in crisis to make sure they know there is hope, and things will be better.” Clary says self-awareness is a good first step to finding and treating mental illness. If you feel like you’ve just not been yourself for a while – if you’ve been held back by sadness or anxiety for more than a few weeks and just can’t seem to shake it – or if you realize you’ve started isolating yourself – it’s a good idea to see your doctor. Treatment at Peninsula begins with a thorough assessment by both a psychiatrist and a general physician for both physical and mental health. Removed from the stressors of their everyday environments, patients have a chance to decompress with the help of a therapist and regain control of their lives. Peninsula offers psychiatric help for adults, adolescents and children suffering from a wide variety of mental and mood disorders.

preachers as a stuffy lot, going to hear this guy will destroy that concept once and for all. “The fact that I preach and play – especially the really full-on blues stuff,” Trotter says, “has broken down potential barriers that can accompany my identity as a pastor.” And he’s all for that. As modest and self-deprecating as his playing is ferocious, he’s 100 percent dedicated to carrying the Christian message in any way he can. He came to the ministry via a path best described as “colorful.” In the early ’70’s, instead of finishing his degree at UT, he started a rock and roll band and went on the road. Then and now, his list of guitar heroes is long, including giants such as Eric Clapton and Chuck Berry. “Like you could play guitar and not list him as an influence,” Trotter laughs. With the arrival of the disco era, he left the road for radio. He spent 15 years

at U102 (now Star 102.1,) much of it on-air, and seven years of it as program director. Along the way, he and cohort Lansden Hill started a little gathering you may have heard of. “We started Boomsday in 1988, expecting 25,000 to 30,000 people,” Trotter remembers. “We had seven food vendors and 12 portable toilets. 125,000 showed up.” He’s been married to his wife, Lynn, for almost 35 years. The couple became involved with Middlebrook Pike UMC in 1988 as a way of providing a church background for their young daughter Lauren. They were “just swallowed up with love and acceptance,” he says, and soon he began to notice that he was “more fulfilled with what I was doing at church than in the radio career I had pursued for years. I was experiencing deep interior conflict. “I began serving my first church, Dutch Valley United Methodist, in 1993

after three years of serious wrestling with God over what I was interpreting as a call to ministry.” But in order to get a master’s in divinity, he had to complete the bachelor’s degree he’d abandoned so many years before. He enrolled in night school, kept working full-time, and preached every Sunday. And by this time the Trotters had welcomed another daughter, Christie. Then it was on to Emory University in Atlanta for his master’s. Commuting back and forth made his alreadyhectic life even crazier. “Something had to give,” he remembers, “and the guitar was it.” He didn’t pick up the instrument again until after graduation. When he did, he “fell headlong into the blues” and started using his music to enhance his sermons. He’s served three United Methodist churches in 20 years of ministry and has been at Concord for the last 12. “I have the greatest job I could have ever imagined. I spend my time collaborating with wonderful people, both staff and members,
