Forty years ago this month, on April 8, 1972, Janet Testerman Crossley, then the wife of Kyle Testerman, Knoxville’s city mayor at the time, was waiting at the bottom of an airplane’s steps at McGhee-Tyson Airport to put a Dogwood Arts Festival pin on Elvis Aron Presley.

College photos of Leo Cooper and JoAnn Henson.
A 55-year love affair By Betty Bean Fifty-five years ago, a long, tall drink of water from Powell Station named Leo Cooper was walking across the East Tennessee State College campus when the prettiest girl in the world came walking toward him. He proceeded to follow her. He wasted no time finding out that she was JoAnn Henson from Bluff City. “I proposed to her first time I ever saw her,” he said. “He was a senior and I was a freshman. He was a basketball player and I was homecoming queen. He saw me long before I saw him and he just chased me all over,” JoAnn said. “When he proposed to me, I laughed real hard because I had other boyfriends. A few months later, he said it’s them or me. And I made the right decision.” JoAnn laughs again
when asked if she’s ever been told that she looks a lot like Elizabeth Taylor. “Only hundreds of times,” Leo says. “One time we were in California and there was a Liz Taylor lookalike contest at this function we went to. I noticed everybody looking at her. …” JoAnn laughs again – “I never took much stock in that. I’m a behind-thescenes person all the way.” After college, the Coopers came back to Knoxville, became successful educators – Leo was principal of Gresham Middle School when he retired, JoAnn an art teacher at Halls and Powell high schools for a combined 24 years –had three children and built a spacious, art and mementofilled two-story log home in Halls. Leo spent 16 years as a County Commissioner and for nine of those years served as chair of that body.
JoAnn cannot remember attending a single County Commission meeting during that time. In between those careers, Leo had a successful run as a restaurant owner and JoAnn as the proprietor of Trunk Treasures, a shop that sold art and highend home décor. Their two surviving children, Leo Jr. and Kristy Carter, are both elementary school teachers (Kristy teaches 2nd grade at Corryton, Leo Jr. teaches 5th grade at Fountain City). Kristy has two children, Casey Carter McManaman and Donnie Carter, a math whiz who has been accepted into the L&N STEM Academy. Casey has presented the Coopers with their first great-grandchild, 3-year-old Leah FaNee. Leo Jr. and his wife, Dr. Beth Cooper, have two children, Leo James “Trey”

Cooper III and Marli, who are 9 and 5, respectively. Little Leah FaNee is named for the Cooper’s eldest child, FaNee, who died in a car crash March 7, 1977, when she was 17. It is the tragedy of the Coopers’ life, and JoAnn’s eyes mist over when she speaks about it. FaNee’s portrait hangs on the wall above a painting of a field of daisies, FaNee’s favorite flower. She inherited a goodly share of her mother’s artistic talent. JoAnn’s retirement years have been busy and productive ones because she has had the time to pursue her own art, rather than teaching students and raising children. She is a gifted watercolorist who loves nostalgic, whimsical subjects, like the 1949 8N Ford tractor that Leo restored, and which she has immortalized in a framed painting and (along with an
assortment of other work) on bright, original note cards that are digital copies of a dozen or so watercolors. “I enjoy just giving them away,” she said. “I have people telling me I need to make this a business, but I just want to enjoy and share. It’s just something I can do that people enjoy. “I loved my teenagers, oh my goodness. I run into former students all the time. But in between teaching, raising kids, helping raise four grandchildren, finally, I have some time. I volunteer at the Fountain City Art Center and take a watercolor class. I’m really enjoying being with a class of artists. Mary Baumgartner is my teacher, and oh, my, she has such a world of experience that I just take every opportunity to grasp.” Leo says he doesn’t much miss politics, except for the associations, and keeps busy with his roses and with restoring JoAnn’s father’s 1952 Chevrolet with the assistance of one of JoAnn’s Halls High School students, Mike Bossenau. There’s a lipstick red ’65 Mustang fastback in the other side of the garage and a pile of children’s bikes and toys out in the carport. All in all, the Coopers are having a happy, productive retirement. “It’s been a wonderful life,” Leo said. “Jo is my best friend and is very, very kind. She didn’t marry me for money – I can tell you that. It’s been a 55-year love affair.”

‘Acting’ their age Charlie Stevens calls the Silver Stage Players, “a bunch of senior citizens that have gone completely bananas.” Don’t let him fool ya. The group is made up of actors of various degrees of experience, all aged 50 or older. They present original productions based on issues seniors face on a daily basis, like depression after retirement, for example, or the demeaning way in which younger people sometimes talk to them. “It’s for anybody over 50,” Charlie says. “And you don’t have to act. You can help behind the scenes.” His wife, Jeanette, says one member has performed in plays in Knoxville and in New York. Others, like the Stevenses, had no prior acting experience. Another goal is to give seniors interested in acting the realization that they don’t have to fake younger parts. “We say, ‘Lets act our age,’ ” Jeanette says. It is the only senior citizens acting group in the state that solely performs original works, she says. The idea to incorporate parts of Shakespeare in their upcoming show, “Move Over, Romeo and Juliet, Here Comes the Greybeards,” which will be presented at 1 p.m. Friday, May 4, at the John T. O’Connor Senior Center, came while watching the six-week DVD presentation by the Royal Shakespeare Company. “And we said, ‘Shoot, maybe we should try to do some Shakespeare.’ ” The crux of the play has several of the Bard’s best characters serving as

MY TWO CENTS Shakespeare’s muses. “We (the muses) suggest he write plays for seniors,” Jeanette says. “It’s a lot of fun, but when we do the actual speeches, we try to do the best we can.” The Silver Stage Players are trying to raise money to perform at the USA Senior Theatre Conference in New Orleans. Also, a filmmaker with Tuscarora Films is producing a documentary about the group. Friday’s performance will be the group’s 74th play. The Northside Kiwanis Club meets at noon Wednesdays at The Foundry. ■
‘The best day we’ve had in 22 years’
Boy, howdy. If you weren’t at Lost and Found Records on National Record Store Day (April 21), you missed it. Maria Armstrong, who owns the North Knoxville business with her husband, Mike, says, “It was the best day we’ve had in 22 years. We’ve had months that weren’t as busy as that day.” The crowd spilled out into the parking lot next to the store’s location at 3710 N. Broadway all day long. Tim Lee, a longtime store fan and musician with the
Jeanette and Charlie Stevens demonstrate a “sword fight” for the Northside Kiwanis Club at The Foundry last Wednesday. They and the Silver Stage Players will present “Move Over, Romeo and Juliet, Here Comes the Greybeards,” an original play based on the Bard’s works that addresses senior issues, at 1 p.m. Friday, May 4, at the O’Connor Senior Center.
Tim Lee Three, stayed up all night the evening before the big day to prepare barbecue and give it away for free. Beer for those 21 and older and coffee were both donated, Maria says. Several bands performed live. “And there wasn’t a soul (who came through that door) that didn’t buy something. They are good people. We have some of the best, best people as customers. They want to keep us here.” Mike and Maria originally ran the business out of their house. They had a brick-and-mortar store on Kingston Pike for several years and opened across the street from the store’s current location in the mid-2000s. Heavy flooding forced a move to a standalone house on Broadway. Maria says the flood turned out to be “the best thing that ever happened.” So, if you’re into vinyl (and, like a friend says, “Wax is where it’s at!”), drop by Lost and Found sometime and tell ’em Jake from the Shopper sent ya. They sell CDs and turntables, too, and can talk to you about record collec-
tions with which you may want to part or a particular album you’re trying to find. Yeah, I spent some money myself. I finally bought Elvis’s “Aloha from Hawaii” LP, as well as Bread’s “Anthology” and my all-time favorite bluegrass album, “The World’s Greatest Show.” Lost and Found Records is open 11 a.m. to 7 p.m. Monday through Thursday, 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Friday and Saturday, and 1-6 p.m. Sundays.

Tennova is ‘Getting 2 Great’ By Ruth White The Tennova Health Management team helps staff members be the best they can possibly be through the Getting 2 Great (G2G) program. The ongoing program involves six pillars and spotlights topics including people, service, quality, innovation, finance and growth. Each year a different topic is highlighted and associates are constantly learning new information. Tennova hosted a launch party to introduce the associates at the North Knoxville Medical Center (formerly St. Mary’s North).

GOSSIP AND LIES
Both women motored to Greeneville last Thursday to address the TVA board of directors. During an intermission, board chair Bill Sansom spoke with them and seemed to listen. On the other hand, he did not agree to or decline their request for a meeting. Knowing both women, as well as Sansom, I would encourage him to meet with them at some point regardless of what the TVA legal office and public relations staff tell him. Sansom is a public official confirmed by the U.S. Senate. He has previously been state Commissioner of Finance and Transportation for Gov. Lamar Alexander. He knows public issues and this is not one to go away. In fact, it is costing TVA precious public support the longer their arrogant approach prevails. Sansom lives on Duncan Road, less than three miles from Van Meter and Jarrard. Former liberal activist Neil McBride (now a TVA board member) also lives in the Knoxville area (Oak Ridge). Both owe it to their neighbors to meet with them and hear them out. Free Speech: Meanwhile, a TVA action designed to curb free expression winds it way through federal court in Judge Thomas Phillips’ court over dress codes which TVA requires to attend its public hearings. It was filed by attorney Chris Irwin, who was barred when he attempted to attend a TVA meeting with red paint on part of his face. Four TVA attorneys – Ralph Rodgers, Harriet Cooper, Maria Gillen and Jodie Birdwell – are handling this case which would seem to be overkill. Thousands of dollars are being spent to enforce and defend this dress code when it really should not matter what one wears to a public hearing as long as he is wearing clothes. One’s dress can be an expression

Charlie Severance wins again One song, “Achy Breaky Heart,” made Billy Ray Cyrus a temporary millionaire. Buster Douglas, 42-1 underdog, knocked out Mike Tyson, and, for a few wonderful weeks was heavyweight champion of the boxing world. Charlie Severance, reserve wingback, was in the exact right place at the right time and put hard hat and pads to LSU superstar Billy Cannon a foot or two from the goal on Shields-WatCharlie Severance kins Field. That one is forever. Photo circa 1980 What then seemed to be just a timely gang tackle in the 1959 homecoming game on a cold November Saturday eventually evolved into The Stop, the most famous defensive play in the history of Tennessee football. Severance had help – Wayne Grubb and Bill Majors. Other plays and players – Jim Cartwright, Neyle Sollee and Jack Kile come to mind – were also key factors in the upset of the top-ranked Tigers. The Volunteer victory, a sizable surprise, was the highlight of what became a mediocre season. LSU was good. It dominated Tennessee statistically and closed to 14-13 with a touchdown on the second play of the fourth quarter. Defending national champions do not kick an extra point to tie. They use the new rule and go for two to take the lead. Cannon, on his way to the Heisman Trophy, got the ball on a predictable pitch-slant that had been previewed and diagramed in the newspaper that week. The Vols, properly coached, were waiting. Grubb got Cannon by the ankles. Severance, up close like a linebacker, applied a robust bear hug. Majors came over the top. Cannon thought sure he had reached the goal. Not so declared the Vols – and head linesman Bob King. LSU had three later possessions without success. Tennessee celebrated.
Over time, The Stop developed a life of its own and changed Severance’s life. For 53 years, Tennessee fans have reached out to shake his hand and say “I was there.” “If all who say they saw the game had actually been there, the crowd would have been 200,000,” says Severance with a big smile. Gus Manning estimated attendance at 47,000. Charlie has had a lot of fun with his part of The Stop. He has been to Baton Rouge several times for social and media events with Cannon. He introduced Billy’s speech at the Knoxville Quarterback Club. They are good together. “I made it, without a doubt.” “You did not, have not and will not.” Charlie Severance was not a onehit wonder. He was a star at Central High in the Dan Boring era. He earned a UT degree in transportation and finance. He married well (Phyllis) and remains active in a sales career. He was a state representative, 16th district, for seven terms, always responsible for introducing other famous athletes who came to visit government. Charlie was a good golfer, softball slugger and grouse hunter. He still enjoys the fellowship of a hunting camp. He is an entertaining storyteller. He has hundreds of friends who still want to talk about The Stop. It was his defining moment. It is a marvelous memory, to be applauded again this summer when he is inducted into the Greater Knoxville Sports Hall of Fame. “I was blessed to wear the Orange. I was blessed to grow up here and get to play before home folk. I was blessed to be part of that particular play.” Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is firstname.lastname@example.org.

‘Whatever it takes’ Last spring when Parker Wormsley committed to play baseball at the University of Tennessee, he gave an early glimpse of his grit. “I told ’em I’d do whatever it takes (to get to play),” the multiposition player, who was a Louisville Slugger All-American in that role at Webb School of Knoxville, told reporters. He was true to his word. When Wormsley, now a freshman at UT, was asked to switch from his normal second base or shortstop positions and play first base for the first time in his life, he didn’t flinch. “When I was asked to play first base, I was surprised,” Wormsley says. “But I saw it as an opportunity to play and work hard. The biggest challenge is the different angles (from what you see at second base or shortstop) and knowing the situational stuff, knowing what to do on every play.” As of my deadline last Wednesday, Wormsley’s stats for the season are a .311 batting average in 45 at-bats, with five
runs, 14 hits, four RBI and a .426 on-base percentage. He also pitched in high school, was a quarterback on the football team and played basketball through the 8th grade. But, he says baseball is his first love. He says he was all the time throwing up a ball and hitting it, retrieving it and hitting it again, by himself. He watched his brother Jordan play SEC baseball at Vanderbilt. And he calls his first season with the Diamond Vols “a great experience.” “We’ve had our ups and downs, both myself and the team, but we’re working hard. The SEC is the best conference in the nation and it’s a blessing and a privilege to play with this team, for this coaching staff and in my hometown.”
He has three favorite memories he’ll forever remember from his freshman year. “Beating Kentucky when they were going for the unbeaten streak record on a Friday night in front of a good crowd. And beating Florida and South Carolina, which were the last two teams standing last year.” Other than learning first base, he says his biggest challenge has been getting used to a longer season. “I’m not a big guy (5-11, 165 pounds) and the grind of the season wears down your body. So, I’m working hard to stay strong and healthy.” He says the team’s goal is to get to Hoover, Ala., and play in the SEC Tournament, something the Vols have not done since 2007. He says playing for first-year coach Dave Serrano has been great. “I knew when I signed they might possibly be having a coaching change, but that wasn’t a big deal and didn’t factor into my decision. But coming here and playing for one of the best coaching staffs in the nation. … (Serrano) is doing it the right way and wants us to do it the right way, whether that’s in academics or on the field.” He says he wants to be “the best teammate I can be and work hard for myself and my teammates.” Well, just look at that switch to first base. Take this to the bank: Parker Wormsley will do whatever it takes. ■
‘JD’ and feathers at County Commission
By now, you may have heard about “John Denver” and feathers at County Commission last Monday. Well, here’s my two cents about it, and trust me, it is worth much less than that: I’ve always thought the best way to make an important point is in a lighthearted, entertaining, satirical kind of way. Case in point: bigotry, Archie Bunker and “All in the Family.” Plus, life is just too darn short to take yourself too seriously. Visit Jake Mabe online at jakemabe.blogspot. com.

A signed 45 RPM single of “Are You Lonesome Tonight” and a photo of Janet Testerman Crossley, Elvis Presley and Kyle Testerman before Elvis’s second Knoxville concert on March 15, 1974, at Stokely Athletic Center.
The April 9, 1972, front page of the Knoxville News Sentinel, autographed by Elvis to Janet. The story was written by Jan Maxwell (Avent).
PULL UP A CHAIR … | Jake Mabe
The day Knoxville’s first lady met The King Editor’s Note: This story is a follow up to Jake Mabe’s April 2 story on Elvis Presley’s first concert appearance in Knoxville. She calls it a whirlwind, the day Knoxville’s former First Lady met The King. Forty years ago this month, on April 8, 1972, Janet Testerman Crossley, then the wife of Kyle Testerman, Knoxville’s city mayor at the time, was waiting at the bottom of an airplane’s steps at McGhee-Tyson Airport to put a Dogwood Arts Festival pin on Elvis Aron Presley. It was something of a coup, Crossley says, that she was there at all. She gives the credit to former city of Knoxville safety director Duane Aussetts, who worked with Elvis’ legendary manager, Col. Tom Parker, to make sure the Testermans met The King. Down Elvis came, wearing his trademark Superfly sunglasses and a wine-colored suede leather knee-length coat with matching pants. “He was very friendly,” Crossley says, “just exactly
what you thought he was. He was very dynamic and spoke to everybody. I’d have taken him right home! I couldn’t believe we could meet him.” Few did. In a front page story in the following day’s Knoxville News Sentinel, writer Jan Maxwell (Avent) wrote that fans were not allowed past the airport gate. Elvis told Maxwell he would never pose for a magazine centerfold, adding “Burt Reynolds has a lot of guts.” (A woman identified as “Mrs. Jack Cupp” got a kiss from Elvis at the airport and told Maxwell she’d never wash her face again.) News Sentinel photographer Dave Carter captured Crossley putting the Dogwood Arts Festival pin on Elvis’s lapel. She has the photo framed and displayed in her home, along with photos of her with other celebrities of the period, as well as a copy of the Page One News Sentinel story, which Elvis later autographed. Elvis was in town that day as the headline entertainer for the Festival, performing matinee and evening perfor-

Janet Testerman Crossley shows the framed photograph of her with Elvis. It ran on the front page of the April 9, 1972, edition of the Knoxville News Sentinel. Elvis later autographed the newspaper for Crossley. Photos by Jake Mabe terman Construction. She has three grandchildren: Brooke Buckner, 11; Clark Buckner, who is a sophomore at Belmont; and Misha Testerman, who is a sophomore at the University of Kentucky. Her second husband, Robert Crossley, who became interim mayor of the city of Knoxville when John Duncan Sr. was elected to Congress, passed away in 2006. A Knoxville native, Janet Crossley is the daughter of Clarence “Doc” Long, who founded Long’s Drug Store in Bearden.
Looking back on her political life, Crossley says she grew to love it. “You meet people you’d never otherwise meet and we had supporters that gave their all and were so sincere.” But of all the highlights, and of all the people she met (including Nancy Reagan and President Gerald R. Ford), Crossley says the day she met The King tops it all. “It really was the highlight of my political life. I still have the dress I wore.” Visit Jake Mabe online at jakemabe. blogspot.com.

‘Here’s to Tyler’ she and her recruiting coordinator, Mickie DeMoss, were up in Pennsylvania wooing prize point guard Michelle Marciniak when Pat went into labor right there in the Marciniaks’s living room. She and DeMoss wrapped up the visit, hustled back to their plane and booked it for Tennessee as the contractions came closer and harder. Somewhere over Virginia, the pilot decided it was time to land. Like that was going to happen. Pat Summitt’s baby was going to be born in Tennessee. She gritted her teeth all the way to Knoxville and the day after he was born she and her husband, R.B., held a press conference to introduce him. There was a basketball on her hospital bed next to him. The following April, the Tennessee women beat the Virginia women for that 1991 championship. A few weeks later Tyler was there when the team went to Nashville to be honored by Gov. Ned McWherter and the General Assembly – a tiny tyke with fringe of ginger hair and an orange pacifier who was being passed around by a bunch of tall, well-toned surrogate moms. When he got a little older, he’d pick a player to be his special “girlfriend” every season. Tiffani Johnson, Kellie Jolly, Chamique Holdsclaw, Michelle Snow – the boy had eclectic tastes. I got to know him in the fall of 1997, and started asking him for his pre-game predictions and keys to every home game. He always gave the question solemn consideration before forecasting a Tennessee victory. He was pretty prophetic, since that was the year the Holdsclaw/ Catchings/Randall-led team went 39-0. And he was for sure his mother’s son – his keys were always rebounding and boxing out. He was impeccably polite and incredibly cute, a natural-born charmer. Often as not, other kids would spot him sitting courtside after a game and start lining up for autographs. He’d whip out a

Tennessee coach Pat Summitt appears at a news conference with her son, Tyler, on April 19. Summitt, who has more wins than any other college basketball coach, announced she is stepping down after 38 seasons due to early-onset dementia. Summitt is now the head coach emeritus and former assistant Holly Warlick is the head coach. AP Photo/Wade Payne Sharpie and oblige every one of them. The following year, the Meek era ended with a dreadful, dreary disappointment in the Elite Eight in Greensboro where Duke ground out a victory and denied the Tennessee seniors an unprecedented four-peat. They were inconsolable, but Tyler tried his best, hugging Holdsclaw on the sidelines as she sobbed. The next year or so, he made a couple of news stories in Rustin, La., when he decided he had heard enough from some Louisiana Tech fans who were heckling his mom. Somebody stopped him before he could climb up into the bleachers, but he was ready to open a can of Tennessee Whupass on a bunch of adults. The years rolled by and Tyler helped his mom cut down the nets five more times after that first one that he was too young to manage. Fans watched him grow and counted him as one of their own. Bruce Pearl allowed him to walk onto the men’s team, and his teammates celebrated when he hit his first 3-pointer.
“Attitude lies somewhere between emotion and logic. It’s that curious mix of optimism and determination that enables you to maintain a positive outlook and to continue plodding in the face of the most adverse circumstances.” – Pat Summitt
We Back Pat!
He was at her side when his mother announced the terrible news that she has early onset Alzheimer’s disease, and he was with her when she stepped down at the end of the season. He says that Pat is doing splendidly and that he would not have accepted the job at Marquette if he were needed here. And we believe him.
One milestone that Tyler missed was Pat’s 1,000th victory. It was 2009, and Tyler was playing point guard for Webb. He had a game that night. She addressed his absence in the postgame press conference (as quoted by USA Today), and made it clear that he was always with her, no matter what: “One last thing – can you

believe it? Webb School had a game tonight, and my son was not here. He said, ‘Mom, I want to be there.’ I said, ‘Son, you never miss a practice, and you never miss a game.’ I hope they won. “Tyler Summitt has taught me more than I have ever taught anyone. I love him to the bottom of my heart. Here’s to Tyler.”
By Betty Bean When Pat Summitt was inducted into the Basketball Hall of Fame in 2000 (a year before Mike Krzyzewski made it), her 9-year-old son, Tyler, escorted her to the stage, rocking a tuxedo and a deep-dimpled, nonstop grin that got bigger when his mama called him her biggest triumph and her good luck charm. At the time, she had six national championship rings. She got her third one the spring after Tyler was born. Twelve years later, Tyler Summitt, who will get his degree, with honors, in May after only three years at UT, landed his fi rst college coaching job the day his mother stepped down from hers. At 21, he will surely be one of the youngest assistant coaches in the country when he will become an assistant women’s basketball coach at Marquette. His mother was 22 when she became head coach at Tennessee. His story and hers have been intertwined from the beginning. When he was 6 months old, Tennessee won the 1991 championship by beating Virginia (which was led by All-American point guard Dawn Staley) in the first women’s NCAA overtime championship game. It was nip and tuck at halftime, and somebody handed baby Tyler down to Tennessee’s star center Daedra “Night Train” Charles so she could plant a kiss on his noggin, something she’d done before every game, but had missed before this one. Some people thought that kiss sealed the deal. And it was sweet solace, since the Cavaliers had knocked Tennessee out of a chance to play in the 1990 Final Four, a particularly galling event, because the tournament was held in Knoxville. Repeat: The 1990 Final Four was in ThompsonBoling Arena and Tennessee wasn’t in it. Pat Summitt was three months pregnant that spring, and six months later,

I keep clothes that I love, long after they have gone out of style (much to my daughters’ horror). I figure if I loved it then, why give it up now, just because someone in New York said, “Oh, that is so an hour ago!” I keep memories: memories of people I knew, respected, loved, admired, learned from. I keep memories of days long gone, the mental scrapbook that is chock full of my hours and days and years. Of houses, of rooms, of barn lofts, of fields, of mountains and picnics and dinner parties and Christmases. I keep memories of places: towns and countries I have visited, history I have stood in the middle of: Cades Cove, Gettysburg, the White House, Berlin, Monticello, Denali, the Amazon, St. Peter’s Basilica, Bethlehem, Masada, Jerusalem. I keep memories of dogs I have loved: Spottie, Boots, Shannon, Hasso, ’Zar, Bailey. With varying degrees of success, I have kept the commandments and the faith. I keep love, and hope, and peace, and contentment. And perhaps, most important, I keep on.

I am a keeper of things. There it is, my confession. Not that material things are so precious to me, though some are. What I am most prone to keep is paper. Paper with words on it. Books. Newspaper articles. Books. Letters. Magazines. E-mails my daughters sent home from college. Books. Christmas cards. Recipes. Books. Genealogical charts. Books. Lists. Music. (In fact, one of my cardinal rules is “Never Throw Away a Piece of Music Because, Sure As You Do, You Will Need It Tomorrow, If Not Today!”) It is a problem. Actually the title of this column came winging its way into my head, and it was just so delicious I began to worry that maybe it was a memory rather than an idea. I Googled it, and sure enough, it is the name of a book (I haven’t read!) by one of my favorite authors.

Closing things out Today is Powell baseball’s last district game. Should the Panthers win, they will finish tied with Halls for first-place in the district standings. Because Halls swept Powell earlier in the season, the Red Devils would win the tiebreaker.
Powell Elementary to go back in time Powell Elementary School kindergarten teacher Pam Conway sits on a time capsule that was filled in 1987 and is to be opened in May. Conway was one of the original teachers at the school when the building was completed and the time capsule was sealed in the walls. Guests are invited to attend an open house 4-6 p.m. Wednesday, May 16, to view the contents of the capsule. Info: 938-2048. Photo by Ruth White
The district tournament will begin May 4. In order for Powell to advance to the regional tournament, they will have to make it to the championship game of the district tournament. The Panthers traveled to Oak Ridge on April 20 to take on the Wildcats, who were in place to contend for the regular season district championship as well. Powell edged Oak Ridge, 1-0. Pitching, which has been one of the Panthers’ best features, was key. Senior pitchers Drake Owenby and Colby Skeen combined for a shutout. The Panthers also beat the second-place Hardin Valley Hawks on April 23. The team

appeared to be back on track due to great pitching. “Hagen Owenby pitched really well,” said assistant coach Jay Scarbro. Owenby threw for six outs before being relieved by Colby Skeen in the seventh inning. Skeen threw for three outs. On the offensive end of the ball, all nine batters swung the bat and helped “manufacture runs.” “As an entire unit, we did a great job at the plate,” said Scarbro. Powell began the second game of the series on April 25. The game was played until the fourth inning. It was then that rain called for the postponement of the game. The crucial matchup between the Hawks and Panthers will resume today (April 30) with a score of 0-0. “Our offensive is really starting to gel … the pitchers have thrown well all year long,” said Scarbro. “If they can continue to do what they’re doing, I think we’ll be fine.” Soccer: The sailing hasn’t been as smooth for the PHS soccer team, however. April has been a month of woes for Powell, but the mood is still optimistic. The Panthers played a 1-1 draw with William Blount on April 19 and went on to lose to Morristown East by a score of 2-1. Powell fell to an overall record of 2-4-3. “We weren’t having good movement,” said Ellias Palcu. “We’re working hard to fix that … Hopefully we can get things going in a positive direction.” The team’s main goal is improving before the heavily-anticipated district tournament. “We’re trying to make ourselves an overall stronger force to be reckoned with
on all parts of the field,” said Palcu. The Panthers have two district games remaining – Anderson County and Knox Central. Palcu believes his team can be in much better shape for these two matches. “It’s always best that problems get resolved, even if they’re late … at least they get resolved before it’s over,” he said. The district tournament date has yet to be announced but will take place in the first week of May. The Panthers look at it as a clean slate and a great opportunity. “This season hasn’t been what we predicted,” said Palcu. “We just have to fix our problems and get it going. It’s not over.” Softball: The district tournament will have special meaning to the PHS softball team as well, as it’s their last redeeming chance for the season. Powell’s record currently stands at 8-17 but 5-5 in the district. For Powell head coach David McGill, the reason behind the team’s struggles is simple. “Our pitching isn’t where it needs to be and we just leave too many runners on base,” said McGill. “It’s youth.” The Panthers only have one senior this year. The fact that his team beat Central leads McGill to believe they have a chance in the district tournament, though. “That was a huge achievement … our biggest win all season,” said McGill. Another big win earlier in the year came over McMinn County. Powell had lost to them in a tournament, but played them the next day and won. “Inconsistency’s been a big issue,” said McGill. Despite it being a “sub-
par” year, McGill sees brighter days ahead. “This year will really help them mature,” said McGill. “They’ll be a lot better next year … they’re all coming back.” McGill goes into the district tournament slightly optimistic, however, and proud nonetheless. “They’re my 16 daughters,” said McGill. “Their attitudes are great. It’s just a rebuilding year.”

That’s Emerson Breeden, who marked his 60th year with Food City and its predecessor White Stores this month. “Emerson worked for White Stores when we acquired the chain in 1990. We b o u g h t Emerson and they threw in the stores,” said Smith. with Jimmy “J.J.” Jones And Breeden celebrating his 60th anniversary while looking not a day over 65, “They must have violated every labor law on the books when they hired him.” At a table in the back, Emerson Breeden just grinned. The Bearden guy is proud to have begun work as a White Stores bag boy. He’s proud of a career that ranged from cashier to store manager to the regional office. He especially likes his current job of quality of life during the early, middle and late stages of the illness.

Why Have Teeth Professionally Cleaned? : You brush and floss regularly so is it really necessary to have your teeth cleaned at a dentist’s office? : Think of a professional cleaning as a preventive measure to maintain your oral health. This process identifies any problems before they get more serious such as the early onset of periodontal disease or cavities that need to be filled. What you want to avoid is progressive tooth damage that could possibly lead to more expensive repairs such as a root canal, tooth replacement, or gum surgery. You usually won’t notice a cavity at first, but eventually it can go deeper into the tooth and cause nerve pain or a crack that gradually spreads. During a professional cleaning, we also identify normal wear and tear such as a filling or crown breaking down - much easier to repair than replace! Through May 31, 2012, NEW PATIENTS can take advantage of a $99 1st VISIT (Reg. $190) for an exam, bitewing X-rays, and cleaning. Mention offer SH-Column. Some restrictions apply.

Preventing drug abuse By Rob Webb With
nearly 40,000 d r u g related deaths nationally each year, k e e p ing Knox County s t udent s sober, Webb drug-free and safe is a priority. As emergency responders, we see the negative impact this problem has on the health and well-being of our students and their families. Whether itâ€™s an overdose or an injury caused by impaired judgment, we know the real-life consequences of teen drug-use. In response to this growing problem, Rural/ Metro has partnered with the Knoxville Metropolitan Drug Commission to encourage parents to take a proactive stance when it comes to teen drug-use. Rural/Metro recently donated 350 First Check drug test kits to the Metropolitan Drug Commission for distribution to parents of local teens. This initiative provides parents with another tool in the home to combat teen drug-use. Some may think home drug testing is an extreme response. Recent data, however, confirm teen drug-use as a serious issue here. According to the 2011 Knox County Schools Youth Risk Behavior survey which came out earlier this year, more than
20 percent of high school students surveyed admitted to smoking marijuana in the last 30 days. Of these drug-users, only 5 percent had used drugs on school property. This means the majority of actual druguse is taking place outside the walls of the school building. Having a drug test in the home can help kids avoid peer pressure situations by empowering them to say â€˜I canâ€™t, my parents might drug test me.â€™ In the last 12 months, 29 percent of students reported they had been offered drugs on school property. Educating yourselves about the issue and talking to your kids about drugs is only the first step. Rural/ Metro urges parents to ask questions, set consistent boundaries and make sure your kids know the consequences of drug-use. The most important thing you can do to keep your teen drug-free is to stay involved in the life of your teen and be a good role model. Rob Webb is East Tennessee Division General Manager for Rural/Metro.
