IN THIS ISSUE Pat Summitt: End of an era The end. Well, almost. An era of historical significance is winding down. There never has been anything like the Pat Summitt story and it seems unlikely there ever will be. She made the remarkable trip from genuine country girl on a dairy farm to the absolute top of the basketball world. Talent got her started. Work was a big factor. Fierce determination, the will to win, put her on the peak.

Exhibit comes to Powell Branch Library By Sandra Clark The colors were stunning and the conversation intense as the Knoxville Modern Quilt Guild hosted a “meet and greet” at the Powell Branch Library. President Emily Doane is a Powell High grad who lives nearby in the Brickey area. She wanted to celebrate the group’s second anniversary at the place where it all began in February 2010.

Modern quilts are inspired by modern art and architecture, she said. “Look for asymmetry, solids and minimalist construction.” Bright quilts hung from the walls of the Larry Stephens Meeting Room. Pictured at top left is a quilt made for donation to the Restoration House. Each member contributed a square.

Moving around as an Army brat became a way of life for Sage Kohler, so she didn’t object to relocating as a manager for State Farm Insurance. “Thirteen different places in 28 years with State Farm,” she said. “I always thought we would move back to Austin, Texas, but we’ve found a home in Knox County. We’re never leaving. We love it here.” She and husband Louis live in northwest Knox County and their daughter, Micah, attends Hardin Valley Academy. Their son, Luke, works for BB&T Bank in Richmond, Va. Kohler purchased the agency owned and operated for years by Andy Anderson following Anderson’s death in 2010. Her staff includes Linda Gentry, who has been with the agency for 26 years, Selena Wright, office manager Gloria Walker, sales reps Karen Russell and Jason Fillers and customer service rep Rachel Wilburn.

Where the wild things are By Shannon Carey You don’t have to go far from home to get a wilderness experience. You can leave civilization behind and commune with nature right here in Knox County. The Legacy Parks Foundation has been hard at work to secure natural and historic areas for public use, and two locations in particular are situated to provide outdoor adventures for one and all.

Urban Wilderness South Loop Seven Islands Wildlife Refuge Since 2009, Legacy Parks Foundation has been working to preserve and link several areas of natural and historic value in South Knoxville. Now, 30 miles of natural-surface trails are set to open to the public in May or June. This phase of the project, called the Urban Wilderness South Loop, connects Ijams Nature Center, Forks of the River Wildlife Management Area, William Hastie Natural Area and Marie Myers Park with trailheads and parking at several points. The loop is designed for hikers and bikers of any experience level. An additional 15 miles of secondary trails offers more varied terrain. Along the way, hikers and bikers will pass rock features, mature forests, farms, and views of the Tennessee River. Also on the loop are the beautiful Ross Marble Quarry and Meads Quarry. The loop was formed through a unique partnership of Legacy Parks, city of Knoxville, Knox County, Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency, Ijams, the Appalachian Mountain Bike Club, private donors and land owners. Major donors include former Knoxville

A backcountry camping and paddling experience is right here in Knox County, too. Seven Islands Wildlife Refuge now offers five primitive campsites along the French Broad River, along with non-motorized boat access, twelve miles of natural trails and scenic views. Seven Islands is managed through a partnership between Knox County Parks and Recreation, the Seven Islands Wildlife Foundation and Legacy Parks. The refuge offers more than 400 acres and 12 miles of natural trails. Over 10 years, 300 acres of fescue pasture at Seven Islands have been replaced with native grasses, making the refuge a bird watcher’s paradise. More than 140 species of birds can be found at Seven Islands. The refuge and the stretch of river it borders are home to several threatened, rare and endangered species. Also, three restored barns and two restored homes give the refuge historic significance, calling attention to the several generations of farmers who made Seven Islands their home. One home is now the Seven Island’s land manager residence. The other is

NEWS FROM POWELL CHIROPRACTIC

What are the barriers to your sleep cycles? By Dr. Donald G. Wegener Research has shown that the quality of your sleep, how fresh you feel in the morning, depends on how naturally and easily your sleep cycles are allowed to occur. Your sleep cycles are made up of two major states, Dr. Wegener non-rapid eye movement (NREM) and rapid eye movement (REM). NREM is the dreamless period, and it has four stages from very light sleep to very deep sleep. REM is the psychologically essential “dream sleep” that follows the deepest NREM sleep. The normal sleep cycle going through all stages and states takes about 90 minutes, and these patterns occur four or five times a night. Major barriers and interruptions of the natural sleep cycles have been found to be: ■ Your own physical condition including chronic conditions, diet and exercise. ■ Drugs, including alcohol, caffeine, nicotine and “sleeping pills.” ■ Stress you are feeling from your job, home or social life. How can these barriers and interruptions be overcome?

Check out your physical condition. Your doctor of chiropractic can help relieve any chronic pain and adjust your body structure if such problems may be keeping you from restful sleep. People under chiropractic care frequently experience much greater relaxation and sounder sleep. Most people find too that regular exercise, at least walking, relieves stress and aids in natural sleep. Any vigorous exercise should be performed before the dinner hour. Vigorous exercise can last for several hours. While attempts to treat sleep disorders through diet alone have proved inconclusive, a well balanced diet is essential. Too heavy a meal at night or heavy snacks in the evening can interfere with sleep. Avoid salty or greasy snacks such as corn chips or nuts. Popcorn is fine. Some people find that a glass of milk or a dish of corn flakes or other high protein or high carbohydrate food can make them feel satisfied and sleepy. Next time: Avoid sleeping pills!

‘Murder in Harrill Hills’ On the cool spring Saturday afternoon of March 31, 1951, Fred Hankins returned to his Fountain City home to find his wife, Mary, lying in a pool of blood.

Jake Mabe MY TWO CENTS Mary, a young housewife, was the victim of an apparent senseless murder with no motive. It was never solved. But, it’s the subject of a new book, “Murder in Harrill Hills,” and its author, retired federal investigator R.S. “Bob” Allen, makes a good case against the man he believes committed the crime. Allen spoke to the Open Door Book Review at the Fountain City Library. The Hankinses had lived in the Harrill Hills home for just less than six months. Both were from Corryton and had attended Gibbs High School. Allen said Fred had taken his car to Hensley’s Garage in Fountain City that afternoon and was brought back home and later picked up to retrieve the car by a young 17-year-old parttime worker named Don Severance (future state Rep. Charles’ brother). After picking up the car, Allen says Fred visited his father’s furniture store, which was located at the present-day site of Fountain City Finance. He returned home just before 5 p.m., entered through the garage and saw his wife’s blood trickling down the steps. In shock, he ran to the Holt home nearby – Mrs. Holt had become

friends with Mary Hankins and knew she had recently suffered a miscarriage. When they returned, they discovered that Mary Hankins had been shot. A witness, a neighbor named Mrs. Shoemaker, had noticed a lanky young man in a light blue shirt, driving a 1950 Ford with what she believed to be Knox County tags (the plate began with the telltale No. 3 that at the time identified Knox County by its population), stop at the Hankins home, knock on the door, look in the picture window and eventually enter the house after Mary answered the door. This was uncharacteristic of Mary; she’d recently denied entry to a Fountain City minister until he was identified. But there was one difference. This man had a gun. Allen believes when the lanky young man, who had recently escaped from prison after seven years, saw the attractive 27-yearold Mary Hankins answer the door, his motive changed. There was, however, no evidence based on the limited technology of the time to prove sexual assault. The position of her body and the angle of the bullet wound suggest, Allen says, that Mary Hankins was trying to flee from her killer. Knox County Sheriff Buddy Jones famously, and to his later regret, said he wouldn’t sleep until the crime was solved. He came to be known as Sleepless Jones and never solved his case. In 1953, a man working in South Carolina named Joseph Hegler was brought in for questioning. Allen says a jilted lover, eager for revenge, used what she’d read in the newspaper about the murder to try to hang it on Hegler. He had an air-

There’s Th ’ no b better way to enjoy nature’s bounty than by hitting one of the numerous trails that meander through East Tennessee’s abundant wilderness areas. But setting out into the woods can be intimidating for a beginning hiker. That’s why Knoxville’s Harvey Broome Group of the Sierra Club developed the Take-aHike program. Take-a-Hike is for new hikers or those who want to return to the sport but need to develop stamina. It’s a year-long series of hikes that starts with a short distance – about three miles – then builds in distance and difficulty as the year progresses. The hikes are guaranteed to increase knowledge as well as fitness levels because they’re led by Sierra Club veterans like Mac Post. “He can tell you everything you need to know about wildflowers and trees,” says Harvey Broome Group Chair Robin Hill. “They’re not just hikes – they’re learning experiences. It’s sort of like a walking classroom, you might say.” Upcoming outings, in-

tight alibi and was released. Allen’s research led him to a habitual petty criminal named Bill Luallen. Known for robbing homes during the day in well-to-do neighborhoods, Luallen later admitted to having a stolen .32 caliber gun and throwing it in a creek off Norris Freeway, the weapon all-butpositively identified as being used in the murder. A snitch later told investigators he’d seen Luallen the evening of the murder wearing a light blue shirt with blood splatter on it. One week after the murder, Luallen was arrested in Davenport, Iowa, driving a stolen 1950 Ford with a Campbell County license plate. Campbell County’s license plate at that time began with 31, confirming why Shoemaker thought it was a Knox County (No. 3) plate. Luallen never admitted to the crime. The attorney general never brought an indictment. Luallen left prison for good on July 4, 1965, and died in 1982. “Murder in Harrill Hills” is available directly from the author at http://murderinharrillhills.com or through Amazon.com.

National Wilderness Preservation System, which now contains over 700 wilderness areas. Many members of the group are simply financial supporters, but its membership is large enough to affect change, should it organize around an issue, says Hill. Some members are happy to speak up on their own. Harvey Broome Vice Chair David Reister joined the Sierra Club while living in California in 1970, but wasn’t involved with the local group until the energy efficient home he built in Solway was threatened by the proposed Orange Route beltway. Since participating in that battle, he has focused his attention on energy issues and the completion of the Cumberland Trail. At the age of 70, he is still dedicated to preserving the environment. The Harvey Broome group has program meetings on second Tuesdays of each month, and business meetings on fourth Tuesdays. All meetings are at 7 p.m. at TVUUC.

cluding Take-a-Hike trips, will be the topic of the next Harvey Broome Group program meeting at 7 p.m. on Tuesday, March 13, at the Tennessee Valley Unitarian Universalist Church (TVUUC). In addition to day hikes, the group offers paddling trips, cleanup expeditions, and overnight backpacking trips, including an annual gourmet backpacking trip in the fall that challenges participants to cook extravagant backcountry meals. Hill calls the group’s outdoor activities the “dessert” that follows the hard work of conservation, which is more like eating eggplant and radishes. The primary endeavor of the Harvey Broome group is to get more people directly involved in environmental issues that affect Knox County, like development, urban sprawl, and transportation. The group plans to pay special attention to the proposed redevelopment of the Fulton Bellows site near the UT campus. The goal isn’t to hold up work, Hill says, but to make sure that development is done in an environmentally sound way. There are six Sierra Club groups in the state of Tennessee. The Harvey Broome group, which has about 1,500 members, is named for a Fountain City resident who was dedicated to wilderness preservation and was instrumental in the creation of the Wilderness Act, which was signed by President Lyndon Johnson in 1964.

Leuthold is no change agent Almost two weeks ago the county Charter Commission met to elect its Victor chair – Craig Leuthold, a Ashe former County Commissioner and son of veteran County Commissioner Frank Leuthold. This Commission can make recommendations on county charter changes which then go to voters in November 2012. Leuthold was elected chair over commissioners R. Larry Smith and Sam McKenzie. Leuthold won on the third ballot when Smith withdrew and threw his support to Leuthold. Five current members of the group were absent on Feb. 15. Two members may have to be replaced due to residency issues. Leuthold is the public information officer for the property assessor, Phil Ballard, who is seeking his second and final term as assessor. Leuthold is thought to want to hold that position. Being the public information officer for the assessor is not exactly heavy duty. In fact, it is a pretty easy, simple and quiet position in local government. Ballard himself could handle most of the media inquiries. If the Leuthold job disappeared tomorrow, no one would notice. It represents waste in government. Leuthold’s election as chair sends a strong signal that this Charter Commission may do little progressive work and might seek a return to the past such as enlarging the current 11 member commission back to 19 members (at considerable cost to taxpayers), repealing term limits or extending the two-term limit to three terms, ensuring no charter change to the sheriff’s pension plan despite its massive costs, and protecting current fee offices. Craig Leuthold, on the county payroll for many years, worked in the Trustee’s office before moving to the Assessor’s office. It is hard to think of anything significant Leuthold did on County Commission, whereas his father was known for his vast knowledge of county finances. After his election he offered no ideas for charter changes. He said he would listen. No one would suggest that Craig Leuthold is a change agent. This new Charter Commission is very large with 27 members. Next public meeting is 5 p.m. Wednesday, Feb. 29, at the City County Building. Keep an eye out for bad things occurring under the radar screen. ■ Early voting has not been large. Democrats have nothing to vote for besides President Obama who has his nomination locked. Of early voters to date, more than 80 percent are voting in the Republican primary as this will decide the next county law director and property assessor. Democrats failed to field a candidate in either race. Not certain who the crossover Democrats will support for president. Be sure to vote March 6. ■ Financial adviser Peter Mahurin of Bowling Green, Ky., has been nominated to the TVA Board of Directors by President Obama. He lives in the same town as Sen. Rand Paul, son of presidential candidate Ron Paul. He must be confirmed by the U.S. Senate. ■ Bearden High School was mentioned last Monday, Feb. 20, on the front page of the New York Times in an article on Tennessee’s teacher evaluation system as it relates to physical education teachers.

GOSSIP AND LIES ■ Get ready for a bloodletting as American Medical Response (AMR) gears up to challenge Rural/Metro for the county’s ambulance contract. John Mills, who works for R/M, is on County Commission’s agenda today. ■ R. Larry Smith will be heard on setting up a committee to investigate fee offices that pay bonuses for continuing education. Fur may fly if Sherry Witt attends. ■ Expect a release soon of the county’s audit of the Public Building Authority’s construction of Hardin Valley Academy. We hear there’s a question of $1,200 misapplied to HVA from the transit terminal project. Since Hardin Valley cost about $50 million and the transit project another $25 million, that’s not much of a mistake.

Candidates make their cases By Jake Mabe The Republican candidates for Knox County law director and property assessor made their cases at a candidate forum held at the Halls Business and Professional Association’s meeting at Beaver Brook Country Club last Tuesday. Law Director Joe Jarret and his challenger, Richard “Bud” Armstrong, and Property Assessor Phil Ballard and his challenger, John Whitehead, gave brief bios and answered audience questions. Joe Jarret: Law director since 2008, unanimously appointed by County Commission after former law director Bill Lockett resigned. Air Force veteran. Served in the public sector for 25 years. Licensed to practice law in the state of Tennessee. Has experience before state and U.S. Su-

preme courts. Says he is responsible for all the county’s legal affairs and must be an attorney, a litigator, a mediator and an administrator. Moved to Knoxville from Florida in 2007. Richard “Bud” Armstrong: Says he’s “homegrown in Tennessee and Knox County.” Earned degrees from UT and Columbia University in New York in education and management science. Says he is the “only candidate running who is educated in Tennessee law.” Pointed to his charity work and serving on the board of the East Tennessee Historical Society when the new history center was built downtown. Member of a Masonic organization. Sunday school teacher. Served with TVA for 30 years, says he managed $60 billion in budgets and contracts. Has

Shortly before City Council denied an appeal of Gentry-Griffey Funeral Chapel’s building permit to add a crematorium to the historic structure on the hill overlooking Fountain City Lake, Gentry-Griffey’s lawyer Arthur Seymour Jr. made a claim that drew hoots of derisive laughter: “Our marketing area is Fountain City,” Seymour said, shrugging off the chorus of guffaws from members of Community Awareness Network (CAN), who filed the appeal. Last year, city building official Tom Reynolds approved the crematorium as an accessory, or secondary, use. But opponents have taken note that Gentry Griffey’s permit will allow them to run the incinerator 16 hours a day, seven days a week. Give or take a couple of corpses, that equals some 1,400 bodies annually. Gentry-Griffey conducted 70 funerals last year. Barring a recurrence of the Black Plague, it’s doubtful that Fountain City can supply enough bodies to satisfy the needs of Seymour’s client. Furthermore, GentryGriffey, which is no longer owned by Fountain Citians,

Betty Bean should probably hearken back to the furor stirred up in the late ’70s when developers – who, if memory serves, were also represented by Seymour – demolished a stately Victorian home to build a Target store. The Target, like the Woodward-Williams house before it, is long gone now, but there are many Fountain Citians who refused to shop there. Taking Seymour’s dubious claim of marketing only in Fountain City at face value, and recognizing that funeral homes – even more than big box retailers – operate primarily on good will, do the owners expect an uptick in business? It could be that the court of public opinion won’t be Gentry-Griffey’s only trial. Despite City Council members’ oft-stated wish to stay out of court, they might end up there anyway. CAN spokesperson Nan Scott confirmed that the group is exploring legal action and has received offers of finan-

cial support to do so. No doubt part of their anger stems from the fact that Gentry-Griffey applied for a permit to build the crematorium February 22, 2011. None of its neighbors knew what they were doing until the following October when they read about it in the Shopper-News. It is unlikely that any of the 80-some people who showed up to support the CAN appeal on a rainy night will be recommending Gentry-Griffey to their friends and family. And think City Council member Nick Della Volpe was hot when five of his colleagues, all of whom hail from West Knoxville, voted against the Della Volpe Fountain City citizens’ appeal? Here’s the text of a love letter he emailed them the next day: “To my dear colleagues from the western half of town: “I will always cherish and remember your kind support of the people of Foun-

tain City. I know they are truly proud of their city officials. May the gentle plumes wafting across the lake from Gentry-Griffey be a visual reminder of your tenacious commitment to neighborhood integrity.”

Underwood wants school policy enforced Conley Underwood says campaign workers for school board member Mike McMillan are handing out materials at schools and he wants it stopped. School spokesperson Melissa Copelan said, “We have reminded school administrators and school security of Policy CC (Political and Commercial Solicitations in Schools). If persons are discovered violating this policy, they are being asked to cease such activity.” Underwood says McMillan workers have been found leafleting the car riders lanes at Gibbs, Carter and Corryton elementary schools. He figures Ritta is next. Meanwhile, Underwood and McMillan will participate in a forum at Gibbs High School at 6:30 p.m. Thursday, March 1. The election is Tuesday, March 6.

put appeals together. Says that gave him “a different perspective coming from the other side.” Responding to questions, Ballard says the new computer system should be online by May. Whitehead said the old system “worked.” Ballard said it has become outdated, that there are only 22 systems like it left in the world. Whitehead said he would save taxpayers $1 million over four years by eliminating positions and restructuring salaries in the office. Questioned “part-time” employees. Ballard said six people reduced hours by one day in a revenue-neutral move that saved jobs. Early voting continues through Tuesday, Feb. 28. Election day is Tuesday, March 6.

End of an era The end. Well, almost. An era of historical significance is winding down. There never has been anything like the Pat Summitt story and it seems unlikely there ever will be. She made the remarkable trip from genuine country girl on a dairy farm to the absolute top of the basketball world. Talent got her started. Work was a big factor. Fierce determination, the will to win, put her on the peak. Among the prizes were Olympic success as player and coach. Pat is famous for intensity and The Stare. And defense. And discipline. She is big on positive attitudes and the Golden Rule. Been there and done all that and won almost 1,100 games. There are no mountains to climb. She is in the relevant halls of fame. The Tennessee basketball floor is named in her honor. She has her own street. Some day she will get a bronze statue. Pat has always said it was all about the players but she gets credit for doing more than any college coach and I do believe she did it the right way. She has overseen the harvest of eight national championships. Beyond the numbers, she has touched lives, changed lives and encouraged, even demanded, excellence from her Volunteers. She has charted a clear course. She has applauded as hundreds earned degrees and charged boldly ahead, willing and able to compete in the real world. In her spare time, Pat has been the best ambassador ever for the University of Tennessee. Andy Holt is runner-up. Peyton Manning may someday move into consideration. Oh, I know, I’m making a

big fuss and it is only women’s basketball. Well, Pat Summitt took it above fun ’n games when she went public with her affliction, early onset dementia, Alzheimer’s type. She would, by the grace of God, refuse to surrender. That meant she would fight it with both hands and all her might. She would take her medicine and work her puzzles and do all the stimulating mental gymnastics doctors recommend. Pure Pat quote: “There’s not going to be any pity party.”

Part of the war would be increasing awareness. When Pat speaks, people listen. Never has there been such a voice for this cause. Fans and foes joined hands. Her new foundation sprouted wings. “We back Pat” is more than a slogan. It is a genuine inspiration. I actually bought a T-shirt. The Patricia Sue Head story started almost 60 years ago in Clarksville. She was fourth among five children in the Richard and Hazel Head family. Daddy was tough enough. Mother was an angel. The Head boys liked baskets and the father put down a floor and put up a goal and lights in the large barn. That’s where Trish learned to play, against big brothers, push and shove or get out of the way. She was 5-9 in 3rd grade but didn’t want to be so tall. Years later, Daddy ap-

preciated her desire and talent enough to move the family from a brick home in Montgomery County to a cold, two-story frame house in Henrietta so she could attend Cheatham County High. It had a team. Trish was multitalented. She was in the 4-H Club. She showed cattle at the fair. She rode horses, barrel races, in Ashland City. She was voted “Most Popular” and “Basketball Sweetheart.” The gym where she played now bears her name. UT-Martin wasn’t her first choice for college. It was Richard’s. His perspective mattered. He was going to pay. Martin didn’t give scholarships to women way back then. She became an AllAmerican. The Martin athletic director pushed her toward the World University Games. Because she would play defense and rebound, coach Billie Moore

took her to Moscow. Back at Martin as a senior, Trish suffered a serious knee injury. The doctor said finished. She never believed it for a minute but admitted rehab was much harder than expected. She decided to take her restoration project to Tennessee – as a graduate student and assistant coach, $250 per month. She moved up before she arrived. The head coach requested a leave of absence. Pat Head, 22, worked on her master’s, taught classes, coached baskets and put unbelievable effort into rebuilding the bum knee. She got well in time to become co-captain of the 1976 Olympic team. We sat together in the Court of Flags in Montreal and talked for some time. She was wise beyond her years. Her rise to coaching immortality was not instant pudding. She first cut down national nets in her 13th

season. In the years that followed, Pat and great players kept cutting. She became a mother and a millionaire and a legend. She wrote books and should have books written about her. The Vol Network produced a magnificent threedisc video of her success. My cameo appearance adds little but you really should own the set. The Pat collection? Naismith coach of the century. Architect of a perfect season. Winner of lots and lots of games and the same number of titles as Mike Krzyzewski, Bob Knight and Dean Smith combined. Without thinking, I assumed good times would go on forever, until she finally grew weary of winning. Alas and alas, it didn’t happen that way. Sad, isn’t it? Call it triumph and tragedy.

Arthur Seymour’s great week Fountain City lawyer Arthur Seymour Jr. had a smashing time at City Council last week. First, he steamrolled developer Tim Graham’s proposal for the corner of Clinton Highway and Merchant Road. Graham wanted commercial zoning that avoids site plan review. That vote passed 6-3 with only Marshall Stair, Mark Campen and Duane Grieve voting no. Brenda Palmer, who represents District 3 where the property is located, zinged Lynn Redmon, president of the Norwood Homeowners Association. “There are what, maybe 15,000 people in the Norwood area,” she said, implying that Redmon did not speak for the majority. Then she stumbled over his name. Redmon may be one of

with the neighborhood. Rumor has it that later in the meeting Seymour reached up to scratch his Sandra ear and three Council memClark bers hit their lights, trying to change their vote. If it’s not true, it should 15,000, but he’s a dynamo be. It was that kind of week political operative, espe- for Arthur Seymour. cially in city elections.

Kim Bennett Review Commission’s discussion and vote on changes to the Uniformed Officers Pension Plan. Commissioner Richard Briggs said at a workshop last week, “We can put this on the ballot as County Commission and not wait on the Charter Review Commission.”

Kim Bennett, executive director of the county’s Retirement and Pension Board, said “It’s not uncommon for uniformed officers to have an enhanced plan, as opposed to people who sit behind a desk like myself.” Commission chair Mike Hammond asked Bennett if the officers’ plan is solvent. “My feeling is we can’t keep doing what we’re doing.” Finance Director John Troyer said the pension’s “liability grows every year.” He estimated the fund is worth $105 million with liabilities of $124 million. Briggs wants Mayor Tim Burchett and Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones to weigh in on the discussion. He suggested both attend today’s Pension Board meeting.

Last year Rotarians worked at Tennessee School for the Deaf, two years ago at South Knox Elementary School and three years ago at Sarah Moore Greene. “This is a good cooperative effort,” said Driver. Last Thursday, Rotarians gathered on Market Square to mark World Rotary Day by showing public service announcements, billboards and other graphics celebrating Rotary International’s End Polio Now campaign.

Rotary International has been instrumental in the worldwide effort to eradicate polio, an idea formed in East Tennessee and celebrated by the Krutch Park statue of Oak Ridge Rotarian Bill Sergeant inoculating a baby. In 1988, when Rotary launched its PolioPlus program, there were 350,000 cases of polio worldwide. In 2008 there were just 1,655 cases – a decrease of more than 99 percent. The number of polio-endemic countries has fallen from 125 to four – Afghanistan, India, Nigeria and Pakistan.

Sweet potatoes to feed hungry

As I write, days ahead of publication, Ash Wednesday is looming. It marks the beginning of Lent, a time of self-examination, repentance, reflection and fasting. There are people who dislike Lent and its disciplines, but I am not one of them. Perhaps it is some native melancholy in me that leans into the thorns. I learned pretty young that life has valleys as well as mountaintops, and one had best be prepared to experience them both. I believe that the depths of life, as well as the heights, expand our souls. So I love the somberness of the Ash Wednesday service. I love that the ashes used in the service are traditionally from the burning of last Palm Sunday’s palm branches, a symbolic linking of one Easter cycle to the next. I love the texts that are read (especially David’s psalm of contrition, quoted above), the penitential music, the silences, the acknowledgement of our humanity and our sinfulness.

And so I keep trying too, to become the person that God envisioned when God thought me up. All of that is tangled up in Ash Wednesday for me. And so, by the time you read this, I will have been to church on Ash Wednesday. I will have knelt and confessed that I am a sinner, saved by grace. I will have received the mark of my sinfulness smudged onto my forehead, and I will have worn it all day as a reminder to myself, and as a confession to everyone who saw me. And if Hilaire Belloc is right at all, that “Death and life are one,” and that sunshine and shadow are inextricably linked, then I will know that it is only because the bright light of God’s love shines on me that the shadow on my forehead – the shadow of my sinfulness – is so visible.

Patriotism at its finest By Rob Webb There are many things we can do to support our military overseas, and at Rural/ Metro we are committed to doing our Webb part. Wayne Pack, Knox County EMS supervisor, just returned from a deployment in Afghanistan. He has been with Rural/ Metro for more than 19 years, and we have worked with him throughout his deployment to hold his job for him upon his return. John Brinkley, a quality improvement officer, is another outstanding

patriot working at Rural/ Metro. An Army reservist for 21 years, Rural/Metro has held his position during multiple deployments, allowing him to maintain steady work between duty assignments. Recently, Rural/Metro and Danny Edwards, market general manager of Franklin County, were honored with the Patriotic Employer Award on behalf of all the Guard members and reservists in service. The award was given in recognition of support for 1st Lt. Reggie Dotson. Lt. Dotson, a Blackhawk pilot for the TN ARNG’s 1/69th Aviation, has been a paramedic at Rural/Metro in Winchester, Tenn., since 2001. Last year, he spent

Adopt and drop the pet shop By Sara Barrett For those people who would prefer to buy an animal at a pet shop or from a breeder instead of adopting a homeless or rescued animal, listen up. I recently saw some information on Young-Williams Animal Center’s home page that would (or should) stop an animal lover in their tracks. The website said the number of homeless animals that were brought to Young-Williams last year could fill every seat of Thompson-Boling Arena. Now add to that number all of the other animals that were rescued by rescue groups and Good Samaritans in and around the Knox County area that didn’t go to Young-

27 weeks serving the National Guard in various temporary duty assignments. Edwards ensured Lt. Dotson maintained a steady amount of work as a paramedic between his military assignments. In appreciation for the support he received from Edwards and Rural/Metro, Dotson nominated them for the Patriotic Employer Award and planned a special presentation after Rural/Metro was chosen for the award. Lt. Dotson will soon return to Afghanistan to pilot a hospital helicopter, and we plan to continue supporting him and others at Rural/Metro who put their lives on the line for our country. We are proud of our employees and their commitment to their communities and their country.

ers to operate. Think twice before you decide to get an animal from someone who will profit from the transaction. Once you’ve thought twice, if you’re still considering going to a pet shop or breeder, please drop by Young-Williams on your way there. If you don’t have a car, look online at www.adoptapet.com. I did a search for dogs within 35 miles of zip code 37922 and 480 animals came up. If you can’t find a new friend out of 480 choices, it’s time for some self-evaluation, folks. If you still don’t find an animal that will fit your family’s needs, contact a veterinarian’s office (after contacting your psychiatrist) or look through Critter magazine. One of these sources will know of an animal in need that needs to be off the streets … or off the euthanasia list.
