Working for Jesus, gifts of love

Come one, come all! The annual Powell July 4th Parade and Celebration is this Wednesday. The parade will step off from the Food City parking lot at 11 a.m. and march down Emory Road to the high school. The parade is sponsored by the Powell Lions Club. The celebration starts at 11 a.m. in the Scarbro field adjacent to Halftime Pizza. Presented by the Powell Business and Professional Association, the event features free food including hot dogs, chips, watermelon and water. Various businesses will have displays and give-aways.

By Tia Kalmon Jean Hepler began with an idea to provide love to those who may not always feel loved. The idea spreads throughout the intricate patterns of her blankets and into the lives of others in need. “These are the people I try to work with, to let them know somebody hasn’t forgotten them,” Hepler said. Working for Jesus, Gifts of

Love is a charity that Hepler started in 1999. She crochets small 30- to 40-inch blankets for individuals in nursing homes and hospitals. “I get a lot of joy out of it, when you see an elderly person, especially someone who doesn’t have any family, and you go in and you give them something like that, they are so thrilled.” Because of the many different

colors of yarn Hepler receives, she primarily works with granny squares, stitching them together to make a blanket. She has decided to give away 220 blankets at Christmas to Brakebill Nursing Home, one for each and every resident, but Hepler needs help. She is seeking donations of 4-ply yarn in any color, materials for quilting, or for somebody who crochets or quilts

Free concert

to donate blankets of their own. Every little bit of yarn can help, she says. Her blankets are like rainbows, bringing color, spirit and smiles into nursing homes and hospitals. She does not want to stop spreading such joy. Contact Jean Hepler at 9472250 if you would like to lend a helping hand or donate materials. Tia Kalmon is a student at UT Chattanooga.

Celebrate July Fourth with a free concert by the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra. The event at World’s Fair Park starts at 8 p.m. The concert culminates with fireworks. The concert and fireworks will be broadcast live on WBIR-TV.

Catalysts for success Leadership Knoxville has broad impact By Pam Fansler

Corvette’s offers award-winning barbecue Head chef Kaleb Jones, owner Ron Corvette and operations manager Mitch Clure (standing) at Corvette’s BBQ and Catering in Powell. Corvette entered the third annual BBQ cook-off sponsored by Children’s Hospital to get an idea where their product stood among others in the area. He knew he had a tasty menu and was elated when the brisket won a first place trophy and ribs received second place honors. “We put a lot of time, heart and soul into our food,” said Corvette. The restaurant is located at the corner of Emory Road and Brickyard Road in Powell. Info: 938-9222. Photo by Ruth White

First Tennessee Bank was proud to sponsor the graduation of Leadership Knoxville’s Class of 2012 last month. As a member of the class of 1994, I know well the impact the Fansler program has had on the community. Since its beginning in 1985, more than 1,200 leaders from all segments of the

community have graduated from the 10-month program, which provides a comprehensive learning experience through a combination of monthly sessions, experiential learning opportunities and team projects. In addition to numerous business leaders, classes have included 150 educators, nearly 50 physicians, more than 100 government officials, close to 50 religious leaders, 100 nonprofit heads, 40 arts representatives and nearly 75 of the community’s most active volunteers. The curriculum is based on eight “cornerstones” essential to 21st century leaders –practical skills which include the understanding

of interpersonal and group dynamics, ability to create a common vision and collaborative approaches to decision making. Real community issues are used to enhance participants’ understanding of their community as well as to reinforce the importance of 21st century leadership skills and processes and how they are needed to deal effectively with those issues. Earlier this spring, the Mayors’ Leadership Luncheon, hosted by Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero and Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, drew 750 community members to hear keynote speaker Gov. Bill Haslam. The governor noted that he and Rogero were both members of the Leadership Knoxville Class of 1992. At the luncheon, the 2012 Leadership Knoxville Distinguished Alumni Award was presented to

head coach emeritus Pat Summitt, a member of the Class of 1988. Leadership Knoxville’s reach extends beyond its graduates. It also sponsors communitywide workshops on topics of interest and provides specially-trained facilitators to assist community groups in reaching their optimum performing level. Leadership Knoxville facilitators have worked with more than 400 entities, including nonprofit boards, civic committees and commissions, governmental bodies, religious groups and administrative staffs in the greater Knoxville area. This fall, Leadership Knoxville will introduce the Class of 2013, whose members will continue to fulfill the LK goal of serving as “catalysts for positive change” in the greater Knoxville area. Pam Fansler is regional president of First Tennessee Bank.

How to succeed in publishing Well, after a few bumps in the road, Col. Calvin G. “Jerry” Lyons has found success in that crazy world that is the book publishing industry.

Jake Mabe MY TWO CENTS You might remember my August 2010 story. Lyons, a retired Army colonel, had self-published a book, “If These Stones Could Talk.” He was moved to write the book after visiting the Normandy American Cemetery and Memorial in France. It contains more than 35 vignettes about World War II veterans, most of whom are buried in overseas cemeteries in eight foreign countries and Hawaii or are listed as Missing in Action or Buried at Sea. Since our first visit, Col. Lyons has made presentations about the overseas cemeteries maintained by the American Battle Monuments Commissions to

civic organizations, book clubs, libraries, two national conventions and even onboard a riverboat cruise down the Rhine River in Germany. He also was interviewed by WBIR-TV news anchor John Becker for Becker’s “Service and Sacrifice” series. Two Army museums agreed to stock his book and it is for sale on Amazon.com. Remember I mentioned something about bumps in the road? Well, here’s the bad news: He sold 20 books to Joseph Beth Booksellers in Lexington two weeks before it filed for bankruptcy (before Lyons was paid). He had also sold books to Borders bookstore, which also

filed for bankruptcy. Lyons has received a settlement from Joseph Beth, but the Borders situation is still tied up in litigation. Here’s the good news: Col. Lyons has now sold e n o u g h books to cover the Lyons direct publication costs of editing, jacket design, photo enhancement and printing. Here’s more good news: You can buy it locally at Union Avenue Books. During his research, Col. Lyons exchanged correspondence with more than 25 families. He remains in contact with most of them. “The son of one of them has bought 39 copies of the book for family members and business associates,” he says. “He told (me) that he placed the book in a place of honor next to his father’s framed Purple Heart.” The 238-page hardback book contains more than 100 photos and a multicolored dust jacket. Lyons

says he insisted on having it printed in the United States, even though it required a higher cost than if it had been published overseas. Lyons is available for presentations about overseas cemeteries. Further info can be found at www. i f t he s e s tone s c ou ldt a l k . com or by calling Col. Jerry Lyons at 304-0552.

‘Forensics at Fort’ is gruesome fun By Wendy Smith As an expert on skeletal remains, Dr. Bill Bass has spent much of his career looking back in time. So the University of Tennessee Body Farm founder and novelist agreed to benefit James White’s Fort with some entertaining, but gruesome, tales of the past. Bass was the main attraction at “Forensics at the Fort,” a fundraiser held last week at Knoxville’s first home, which dates back to 1786. His talk was a combination of history, osteology and forensics, as well as a teaser for his latest book, “The Inquisitor’s Key,” co-written with Jefferson Davis. Katrina Vargas, president of James White’s Fort’s board of directors, knows that the survival of the historic site depends on people visiting and caring about it, and she was happy to use Bass as a carrot. “Dr. Bass is the kind of person who can draw people in,” she said.

Bass talked about what it was like to live in the area around the time when Knoxville was founded. Because of the threat of Indians, fortified homes, or stations, were established to protect those who lived on Knoxville’s outskirts. Some of their names – like Campbell Station, Cavett’s Station and Singleton Station – are still familiar. Cavett’s Station was the site of a tragedy when it was surrounded by a renegade group of Cherokee Indians in 1793. White settlers were told they would be released if they surrendered their arms, but were executed instead. The victims are buried in the vicinity of Broome Road in West Hills, but the exact site of Cavett’s Station has never been located, Bass said.

He used a collection of skulls to teach a lesson in osteology, or the study of bones. One was the skull of an Indian that was flat on the back. That was a characteristic of the tribe because mothers carried babies on their backs on cradle boards. Other skulls bore evidence of the murder of their owners. One was killed by a gunshot and another by bluntforce trauma. One sported a square fracture caused by a golf putter. “Beware of who you go golfing with,” warned Bass. James White’s log home has generous proportions, but it likely housed several families. The site also has a guesthouse and other outbuildings. “I call it Knoxville’s first hotel,” says executive director Sam Maynard. Gov. William Blount asked James White to donate land

for the new town in 1791, and he agreed. A grid was created and 64 half-acre lots were sold for $8 each and distributed by lottery. Robert McGinnis, curator of James White’s Fort and a descendant of James White, says that construction had begun on William Blount’s riverside home prior to the lottery. When the lot was drawn by someone else, Blount had to purchase it – for three times the price. Like other nonprofits, the fort has suffered due to the slow economy and needs repairs. Memberships begin at $25 per year, and members are admitted for free. For information: jameswhitefort. org. Historic preservation requires community support, says Vargas. “If we don’t have history, we don’t have anything.”

Another picture showed Tyree and his wife, Mary Pat, having a friendly conversation with the glamorous Imelda Marcos, here to preside over the opening of the Philippine Pavilion. “The rumor was she had 3,000 pairs of shoes. Mary Pat and I asked her about that and she denied that she had 3,000 – she owned up to having 1,060.” On the 30th anniversary of the event, he says the benefits of the bipartisan effort are plain to see: “We cleared that hobo jungle (now the World’s Fair Park). We brought about the demise of Malfunction Junction. We had one downtown hotel and wound up with four new ones. We got more than $300 million in interstate improvements that would normally have taken years. We rehabbed the Candy Factory and on opening day, we had 97,000 people – 365,000 for opening week. The city retired its debt seven years ago and realized a (wonderful) return on its investment.”

A letter to the editor in Friday’s News Sentinel calls the “Halls Shopper” a part of the media elite. You know it’s true because: A. Jake Mabe always writes about Elvis or Nixon. B. Carol Springer has a passport – and has used it. C. Sandra Clark listens to NPR weekly (“A Prairie Home Companion”). D. Shannon Carey drinks iced chai latte (when she can afford the 5 bucks). The News Sentinel published checks and information that only Allison or Tim Burchett could have accessed, attributing them to an anonymous source. Who was it? A. Tim, because things had slowed down after the budget vote and he needed more excitement. B. Allison, because she thinks she’ll get a bigger divorce settlement if Tim is thrown out of office. C. R. Larry Smith, because he wanted to insert himself into this like he does everything else. (Pass the feathers.) D. Jeff Ownby, because he wanted to change the subject.

We will identify irregularities or logistical problems. The U.S. Embassy in Dili (the capitol of Timor-Leste) fully supports our mission. Ambassador Judith Fergin will host us at her July Fourth celebration. Our delegation will be led by former U.S. Ambassador to Egypt and India Frank G. Wisner. It will be a fascinating trip to a distant part of the planet. It is not easy to get there. In fact, I fly from Knoxville to Chicago, then nonstop to Tokyo, then direct to Singapore and then to Dili. After crossing the international date line, it is Day Three before I arrive in Timor-Leste and it is 25 hours on four different aircrafts. MPC could have four new members, depending

on mayors Tim Burchett and Madeline Rogero. Terms of four expire this month: Art Clancy III and Ursula Bailey (city) and Mose Lobetti and Stan Johnson (county). Each can be replaced or reappointed. Speculation is building on when Burchett will fill the county finance position and who it will be. It has been vacant for several months. Gloria Ray, former Tourism and Sports Corp head, has sold her home near the Holston Hills golf course and moved to the gulf coast of Florida. Margaret Cox, who shared the house with Ray, resigned from Sports Corp on June 22 and her position has been dissolved, according to interim KTSC head Kim Bumpas. Her duties were assigned to other personnel and she did not receive a severance package.

there’d been such bipartisan cooperation (during the runup to the fair, which spanned three presidential administrations – those of Ford, Carter and Reagan).” Tyree was wearing a “Scruffy Little City” lapel button and said he will always be grateful for the insult – delivered by a Wall Street Journal reporter – that galvanized the town. “In the dog days of the planning, we had all these questions – ‘Are you really going to be able to get the money?’ ‘Are you REALLY going to be able to succeed?’ “Cas Walker said it wasn’t gonna work. There was a movement afoot to get a referendum, and we knew what would happen if that went through. Then came that article and it brought this community together in a way we had not been able to before.” He showed a slide of dignitaries donning commemorative T-shirts while Tyree was fumbling with his. “What you see on the far right is the hand of (County Executive) Dwight Kessel.

POWELL SHOPPER-NEWS • JULY 2, 2012 • A-5

Donna Wright heads west By Jake Mabe She has The “Wright” Stuff. And she will be missed. Knox County Schools assistant superintendent for curriculum and instruction Dr. Donna Wright has accepted a position with Williamson (Tenn.) C o u n t y Schools as assistant superintendent of middle and high schools. She Donna Wright begins work July 16. She is apprehensive. Knox County Schools has been her home for 30 years. She calls it a life-changing moment, says she isn’t selling her home here and will be back on weekends, but is excited about moving to the highest-performing school district in the state. “They’re not satisfied.

They’re hungry. That’s intriguing.” Wright will take her infectious enthusiasm along. Spend 20 minutes with her and you’re ready to bust a brick wall. And she will carry with her, too, lessons learned from mentors. She didn’t want to talk about herself. She wanted to talk about them. The late Vicki Dunaway, a friend since childhood, who asked her to substitute teach at Powell High after Wright’s youngest child was born. She liked teenagers, had a captive audience and could wax poetic about her passion for history. “I was hooked.” Shirley Underwood, the greatest influence of Wright’s professional life, the voice that sits on her shoulder to this day, the person who “knew what I needed to do long before I did.” The late Jerry Sharp,

Gibbs High principal and her favorite curmudgeon, who took a risk on a young teacher. “If they’d kept me (at Gibbs), I’d still be there. It was Camelot.” Allen Morgan, Powell High principal, who pushed her into areas she didn’t think she could fit. “I had no aspirations to be an administrator. That was my biggest growth period.” Earl Hoffmeister, the former superintendent, who convinced West High principal Jim McClain that Wright would be McClain’s assistant, even if it meant she had to drop out of a 30-foot tree during a Ropes Course. The late Jim Pryor, with whom she played good cop/bad cop at West High. “I called him my work husband. When I became principal, I worried how he would respond. He said, ‘We worked together before, we’ll work together now.’”

Bud Fields collection? No comment It was a simple question: Is the Bud Fields scrapbook collection on display and is it available for research? The University of Tennessee sports information department did not respond to the e-mail or phone message. No comment. It could be the department is very busy. After all, this is July. Or maybe the question was too simple and mistaken for a tease. It could be those who make major decisions don’t think the Shopper is worth the bother. Our circulation is just 93,880. (Wow, that’s pretty good – and the website lights up like a pinball machine.) There is another possi-

Marvin West

bility: sports information people are still looking for the big books. I do hope they are not lost. They are treasures of historical significance. There’s that magic word again, history. Tennessee has some, much of it at a higher level than whatever it is we have now. The Bud Fields collection, 11 books big enough to

display wallpaper samples, includes photographs of all who played football at Tennessee. There is other valuable information, even old newspaper clippings. Big games. Good stuff. OK, I have a vested interest. I wrote a few stories. Gathering and preserving was a dogged labor of love for Bud. It goes back to 1941. There were two launch pads. He attended his first UT game. He found, in his great aunt’s basement, an old box of very old newspaper clippings. Saving history, day by day, bit by bit. Brilliant! Bud clipped Volunteer stories and pictures from the News Sentinel and Journal

Wright helped stop what she calls the “blight flight” from West High to Webb School that began in the 1970s. West became one of the top-performing schools in the district. She takes little credit, saying “I’m a shared leadership kind of gal and we made decisions together (as a faculty). Perception changes reality.” Wright says the school exploited its rich history of graduates and created professional learning communities before anyone had coined the term. Oh, and at the time she was one of only 12 female high school principals in the state. Dr. J.W. “Bill” Phifer, the gentle giant, former director of high schools, who groomed her for her first central office job. (“We used to argue over split infinitives.”) Roy Mullins, “a gentle soul, a deep thinker wrapped in a compassionate heart,” who taught her to use common sense, but to always err on the side of the student. The late Sarah Simpson, “a formidable woman,”

who taught her to never ask anybody to do anything you yourself wouldn’t do. Wright met Mrs. Simpson, and it was always “Mrs. Simpson,” at Powell High, when she helped get classrooms set up in the then-new building. Asked about it years later, Mrs. Simpson didn’t even remember it. “That’s because she just did the work. She was brilliant. She taught me to always do my homework and said, ‘Don’t open your mouth until you know what you’re talking about.’” She taught Wright something else, too. “Honey, don’t ever believe your own press.” Wright says Simpson’s presence still lingers. “I said going in that I would never replace her. Nobody could. I hope I’ve made her proud.” She will miss the people with whom she’s worked, particularly the up-andcomers. “This district’s in good hands. That’s the whole idea. Make sure you have good

people in the pipeline and set them up for success. I hope I’ve done that. Somebody always did it for me. People don’t always realize their own potential. I didn’t.” She isn’t leaving on a bad note, says Knox County Schools will always be her home and that superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre doesn’t want her to go. She’s had opportunities to leave since she applied for the superintendent’s job in 2008. She’s been a finalist for a few positions elsewhere and turned several others down flat. But she will be closer to her two adult children and to her best friend, Lana Seivers, dean of education at MTSU. She likes the challenge waiting in Williamson County. “I’ve always been a ‘what if” kind of gal. I feel good about it. That’s how you make it work. If you don’t have joy in your work you need to find something else. I have joy.” She also has The Wright Stuff. And she will be missed.

and pasted them onto his bedroom walls – until he ran out of walls. He filled a cardboard box. And another. Bud got smart. He went to the source. He gathered photos from Saturday night waste baskets at the newspapers. “Sometimes you guys would tell me to scram.” Bud did not clip and collect full time. He became a very good student at Knox High and an excellent volleyball player at the YMCA, good enough to get college scholarship offers. He chose to attend UT. He started a volleyball team. He coached volleyball. (He is in volleyball and other halls of fame. He is an honorary UT letterman). When Bud went into the Air Force, his mother want-

ed to throw out the collection. He saved it – under his bed. He asked relatives and friends to help maintain his project while he was away. After that, he got serious. He begged and bought 8x10 pictures from the legendary Thompson studio. He got a few from the old, old Knafel studio. People gave him football pictures of fathers and grandfathers. He had some copied from early UT annuals. When the Journal went away, Bud got what would have been football discards from the library. He paid the UT photo lab for hundreds of pictures. He worked an exchange program with the Harris and Ford version of UT sports information. He gave up some game program covers and received

some spare photos. Somewhere along the way, he started snapping his own. He got improved access when John Majors was coach. The collection cost a small fortune and represents dedication and determination that lasted most of a lifetime. Just before age 80, Bud was finally ready to let go. Of course private collectors wanted the books. A former Tennessee football player, a Vol for life before that term became popular, paid $10,000 to keep it in the family. The Bud Fields collection was quietly donated to the University of Tennessee. It is probably somewhere in the sports information department. Sorry I can’t be more specific.

A-6 • JULY 2, 2012 • POWELL SHOPPER-NEWS

For birds, water is a serious matter NATURE NOTES | Dr. Bob Collier Over the past few weeks we’ve had weather approaching tropical conditions: daily highs in the 90s, intense sun, no rain for days. The heat out in the direct sun is oppressive, even dangerous. The robot announcer on the NOAA Weather Radio from Morristown warns us of the dangers of the very high heat indices, especially to the very young and the elderly, reminding us to get plenty of rest, stay in the shade and drink lots of nonalcoholic beverages. But what if you’re a songbird, a daytime creature that has to get lots of exercise, often in the sun, just to get your daily requirement of food? And what if, instead of a nice steady internal body temperature of 98.6 degrees, you normally run along at a temp varying from 104 to 108 degrees? If you’re a bird, then, having a place to find some daily water becomes a serious matter. In fact, at this time of the year providing water for the birds is much more important than providing food. And yet, it is a task that is often forgotten, or written off as not all that necessary. A recent survey of Cornell FeederWatch participants, a zealous group of bird feeders who average seven bird feeders per yard, discovered that only a small percentage of them specifically provided a regular source of water in their yards for their feathered friends.

With nearly 10,000 species of birds in the world, you might expect a wide variation in needs of various birds for water and that is indeed the case. Many species of birds that live in desert or near-desert conditions have developed complex adaptations to extract water from their food sources, especially insect-eating birds. Dried seeds may contain only 10 percent water, but insects are juicy. Ants, for example, are 65 percent water. Some desert birds are so well-adapted that they never have to drink a drop of free water. At the other end of the spectrum, sea birds live their whole lives surrounded by water. But it’s sea water, a 3 percent solution of salt that would prove fatal to a shipwrecked human being. But such birds as the gulls and the albatrosses, many of whom drink only sea water, have developed a set of salt glands located in their skull above their eyes, which quickly and efficiently remove the excess salt from their bloodstream. Most of our familiar southeastern songbirds have not developed such chemistry, presumably because water is normally available to them somewhere. Streams, water holes, dew, raindrops supply their needs in ordinary times. These sources become fewer and farther between when daytime temps soar into the 90s and it doesn’t rain for days and days.

And water isn’t important to the birds just for drinking. Just watch a bird having a good thorough bath in a puddle or a birdbath. They get in there, fluff up all their feathers and have water flying everywhere! They are washing off their feathers, which get dusty, infested with mites, and affected by wear and tear. It goes without saying that keeping their feathers in top condition is a critical part of every bird’s daily routine. So what is a conscientious bird-provider to do? If there is a problem, it is that of having too many choices. A person can provide

water for the birds with anything from a lawn sprinkler, a shallow kitchen pan on the ground, a classic birdbath on a pedestal in the garden, on up to an elaborate water garden with fountain, spray or waterfall, complete with water plants and landscaping. Local garden and hardware stores, bird specialty stores and online sources are loaded with a variety of gear and devices to water the birds, and there are books galore on the subject. One author I read recently writes what many of us have observed: “Moving water is a bird magnet.” Just put out a simple spraytype yard sprinkler on one of these hot afternoons and you’ll see what I mean. Robins, towhees, cardinals, titmice and chickadees appear as if from nowhere and flock in like the little kids at the Powell splash pad, and seem to enjoy it just as much.

An inexpensive and effective way to bring the birds in is with some sort of a dripping setup. It doesn’t take much. Just a slow drip into a pan or a birdbath will do the trick. Try hanging a plastic milk jug full of water over your still water pool with a tiny hole punched in the bottom of the jug. A word of caution: I made my first couple of attempts with holes too big. And you can’t make the holes get smaller. “Tiny” is the key word here. There are a variety of commercial models of drippers that attach to the edge of your birdbath. They run off your garden hose and so need a lot less attention than water jugs. You can also set up devices that spray or mist. Some recycle the water so that little goes to waste. You can never tell who will show up in your yard for a chance at some cool water. Last week, Spouse

and I were out at my partner Ed and his wife’s place, admiring their lovely water element. It has a waterfall, a little rocky stream and a pool surrounded by lush vegetation, looking as if it were plucked from some cool, shady cove in the Smokies. And Lo! There was a beautiful tropicalblue Indigo Bunting, standing on the rocks in the stream, splashing away for all to see. His plain, dark brown mate stood on the bank, watching him splash; she was apparently too modest to bathe in public. How exciting to be that close to a small, showy bird that you usually expect to see in your binoculars, singing in a distant treetop! So, offer some water to your neighborhood birds. They really do need it, especially through the hot summer months, and you’ll be rewarded with a surprising number of neat feathered visitors.

Mission Statement: To improve the quality of life of all those God places in our path by building on our experiences of the past, pursuing our vision for the future and creating caring life-long relationships.

Principal Martha Burress and administrator Ron Burress stand in front of Dayspring Baptist Christian Academy. Photo by C. Taylor

How to be unforgettable As [Jesus] walked by the Sea of Galilee, he saw two brothers, Simon, who is called Peter, and Andrew his brother, casting a net into the sea – for they were fi shermen. And he said to them, “Follow me, and I will make you fi sh for people.” Immediately they left their nets and followed him. (Matthew 4: 18-20 NRSV)

Teaching life change, one child at a time By Cindy Taylor Dayspring Baptist Christian Academy is entering its fourth year, but the labor of love to develop this inner city school began decades ago. Academy founders Ron and Martha Burress had only met a few times before they both lost their spouses. Through their churches and missions they were reacquainted, married and found they had many of the same goals. “God brought us together at just the right time,” said Martha. “It has taken a lot of prayer to get where we are now. Children today need structure and we teach them responsibility.” “I was born and raised here but moved to Florida to live until around 13 years ago,” said Ron. “God put on our hearts that this school was needed right here. When we came here all we had was this street corner, and I had that borrowed.” The couple has worked steadily to purchase surrounding land for the school as it became available and now owns more than an entire block. Dayspring Baptist Church sits on one corner with the school at the

opposite end. The couple plans to continue the expansion into the future to create a full campus. The school is licensed and certified for grades 1-12 through the ACE (Accelerated Christian Education) and registered through the Knox County school system. Current capacity of DBCA allows for 50 students but with expansion the school could accommodate up to 144. Students are taught the same subjects as in public school and are tested along the same lines. The main difference is that students are given time to pray with the instructors and receive one-on-one encouragement in their life goals. “We are teaching children integrity, pride and respect,” said Ron. “Having respect for yourself is where it starts.” The Burresses say the area of town where they have placed the school has received a lot of negative press, but they hope to change that. “We hope to not only change this community, but have some great champions come out of this

I’ve learned that people will forget what you said, people will forget what you did, but people will never forget how you made them feel. (Maya Angelou) I remember the first time I met him. I was a newlyminted young professional, just out of college, and he was Lynn director of an on-campus Hutton student service.

It was real. As I watched him greet I would see him occasionothers, I realized that he made everyone feel just as ally at university events over the next two years, and it special. “What a gift,” I mused, was always the same: just standing to one side and the right touch, just the right watching him.

one is (charisma is from the Greek for gift), when what was actually happening was that this person was making me feel charming. Jesus walks right up to the edge of the water of the Sea of Galilee, and with no preamble whatsoever says, “Follow me,” to Peter and Andrew. And these two brothers beach their boat, throw their nets aside and scramble out of the boat to become disciples of an itinerant preacher. He must have made them feel as if they were the very people he was hoping to see that day. My day to day work involves talking to people who are in need of help of some kind. Sometimes we are able to offer the help they need; sometimes not. Sometimes we say the right thing; sometimes we don’t get it right. Sometimes we hear the deeper cry; sometimes we miss it. But most often, or so it feels to me, if we can listen carefully and attentively, and really try to understand the need, even if we can’t meet it, we can make a connection. And people will leave feeling – no, knowing – that they matter. Of course, there is a sad downside to Maya Angelou’s truism. Make someone feel judged or misunderstood or shamed, and they will never forget that either. The lesson is this: Be aware of your power!

Water, the world’s most important commodity By Caroline Longmire

Clint Stowers takes interns through the path of the water as it travels through the treatment plant at the Hallsdale Powell Utility plant. Photo by Ruth White

Behind the water pipes at HPUD By Sarah Dixon Is the expensive utility bill worth it? What actually happens in those pipes? Hallsdale Powell definitely has a story to be told. Hallsdale Powell Utility District was built at a low point, topographically speaking, in 1954. It provides public water and public sewage services for parts of North Knox County, Anderson County and Union County. However, it didn’t build a big enough facility for the ever-growing area. With its newly added plant, the entire team at HPUD has a goal to improve the water for us each and every day.

Todd Dykes, the Laboratory and Process Control System supervisor, says with a smile that HPUD turns bad water into good, clean water, meeting comprehensive regulations with hard work every day. Microbiologists are constantly testing to make sure the water is pure. Violations must be reported to the state. Even right now, HPUD has a project with the University of Tennessee’s Barry Bruce to find the right kind of algae to improve the cleanliness of the water and provide lower prices for the customers. Nick Jackson, an engineer, said HPUD

is working with UT to develop a bio-mass suitable to operate vehicles (as a substitute for gasoline). The process of cleaning the water is complex. Employees at HPUD test the water for solids, ammonia, pH, BOD (biochemical oxygen demand), E. coli, chlorine and oxygen levels. They test the water at the beginning and the end, assuring that the water is as clean from impurities as possible. HPUD definitely has a good system of fantastic employees and a smart goal to keep improving and experimenting to give the best services possible.

Last week the Shopper interns took a tour of the Hallsdale Powell Utility District. Our tour guides, Todd Dykes and Clint Stowers, took us through both of the company’s plants where we saw the old and new water treatment systems. After the tour, we ate lunch and heard from Roy Arthur and Nick Jackson. Arthur, the coordinator of Beaver Creek Watershed, and Jackson, the manager of Operations and Plants for HPUD, are both passionate about their jobs, which made

their speeches intriguing. Arthur spoke about how the Beaver Creek Water she d is “a living experiment” to show the relation of clean water to the number of bugs in the Jackson area. “Water is the most important commodity in the world,” said Arthur. Watersheds are like a huge bathtub where all water drains to the lowest point.

Jackson discussed the “latest and greatest technology” at Hallsdale Powell. That new technology will be helping to get Beaver Creek off the Impaired Creek list and turning it into a clean and healthy creek. The criteria are “swimability” and “fishability,” Arthur said. Few, if any, creeks come off the impaired list. Hallsdale Powell is doing a fantastic job in keeping citizens’ water clean, having no violations in more than five years. The interns were given a “celebrating five years” T-shirt and water bottle.

UT engineering building features latest in technology By Madeline Lonas This week the interns visited the Min H. Kao Electrical Engineering and Computer Science Building at UT. While most of us think sports when we think of UT, which came first – the science or the game of basketball? Just as there is science behind that flat screen you’re watching and the remote control running it, there is science behind the throwing, dunking, bouncing or shooting of a basketball game. Without science there would be no sports. Pat Summitt understood that momentum equals mass times velocity (P=MV), and that is how she taught her team how to dunk a basketball. Jenny Woodbery, a communications specialist and our tour guide, led us through the new building that houses the EECS. She showed us the building’s cool features. The walls are painted with stripes of either green, blue or a salmon

color – green meaning elevators, blue meaning bathrooms and salmon meaning offices. With the color coding, individuals can find their way around the building easier. The classrooms have motion-activated lights and glass boards which are said to be even better than white boards. As a student who will be attending the L&N STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics) Academy this fall, touring this building at UT was a real treat. Engineering is a big focus with teens. It not only sounds fun, but a career in engineering is one of the most promising when it comes to potential for high earnings, projected job growth and job security. The starting salaries for engineers are some of the highest of all college graduates, according to the U.S Bureau of Labor Statistics, while those who choose other professions must work for many years to attain their desired income level. Even

though males show more interest in engineering, we saw a lot more women at the college than expected. Engineering requires discipline, skill and knowledge in order to design and build structures, buildings, devices, machines and systems. And most importantly, you have to be creative and have an imagination. Most engineers have an artistic talent, and that helps with the designing.

Visiting the EECS opened my eyes to more options for when I graduate, and gave me a wider choice of possibilities and information that I will share with my friends who hope to become engineers when they grow up. The next time you’re sitting at the ThompsonBoling Arena or at home watching a UT basketball game, remember that there is science behind the heart Knoxville has a “big town” look from the sixth floor balcony of of an athlete. UT’s newest academic building. “This (balcony) was built for parties,” joked Jenny Woodbery, communications specialist who led Shopper interns on a tour of the building. Photo by Melinda Taylor

UT orange is going green with the eco-friendly touches the building has to offer. Designers used natural lighting as much as possible, making this one of the greenest buildings on campus. When visitors enter the building, they see smooth marble floors and colorcoded walls to help them find their way. The helpful and knowledgeable staff assists with any questions. Classrooms serve from 50 to 150 students, and each has tiered seating with electrical hookups at each desk. Min and Fan Kao’s gift was the largest in the history of UT, with $12.5 million dedicated to construction and a $5 million endowment for Kao Scholars and a professorship. The state matched the Kao gift two to one, adding $25 million to the project.

‘Fur’ a good cause

Groomers from all over the eastern part of the country got together recently in Knoxville for this year’s Pet Stylists Super Show. The dogs entered the show looking normal and left looking like a page from a fairy tale. Specifically, look at Cindy Oliver’s dog, Paisley, whose fur was trimmed and dyed to look like images of Pinocchio and Jiminy Cricket. Oliver won first place in the Creative Grooming Competition. All proceeds from the event went to Young-Williams Animal Center. Info: www.petstylistsoftennessee.com. Photo submitted

Rural/Metro adds technology Rural/Metro has introduced intubation technology into its ambulances, making it easier to open and maintain a patient’s airway in an emergency. The King Vision video laryngoscope was introduced in a trial number of Rural/Metro ambulances last week, but will soon roll out to Knox County’s entire 49-ambulance fleet. The laryngoscope uses LED digital display technology to magnify the airway and project it on a screen at the paramedic’s eye level for better visualization. The blade portion of the device, which is inserted into the airway to introduce the tube for breathing, has a camera lens attached. The image is then relayed to a screen on the handle of the device. This allows for faster, more accurate placement of breathing tubes to maintain an open airway.

NEWS FROM GRACE CHRISTIAN ACADEMY OF KNOXVILLE

iPad initiative

A world at your fingertips By Shannon B Sh Morris M i Technology is impacting every area Student Michael Johnson of life, seemingly faster than we can uses an iPad. Photo by Shankeep up with it. Schools must keep non Johnson their students as up-to-date as possible in order to prepare them for the future. One of the most exciting technological advances in recent years is the iPad, a device that provides an amazing link to resources as well as access to current information technology. The iPad is similar to a small laptop computer, but with amazing size, speed and portability, providing easy access to the Internet and to thousands of educational apps. With that in mind, Grace Christian Academy is excited to announce a brand new technology initiative that will give all students access to this resource. The goal is that each student will become familiar with the iPad technology as a resource in the learning environment. Randy Down, high school principal says, “This technology gives our teachers a chance to teach across curricula, making lessons applicable from one class to another through several apps available through Apple. Teachers will be able to track and monitor a student’s progress more rapidly, identifying areas where additional instruction is necessary.” Beginning in spring 2013, students in grades 9 and 10 will be required to have an iPad II or III for use in class each day. Phase Two of the iPad implementation will continue in the fall of 2013, when all students in grades 8-12 and high school student will be using will be included. When these two phas- iPads in the classroom, for research es are complete, every middle school and for homework assignments.

Safety first! By Shannon Morris Safety is a top priority at Grace Christian Academy. Feeling secure in the classroom is certainly important; however, Grace ensures students are safe long before the school bell rings. It is essential to our parents, school faculty and staff that our students are protected from potential traffic hazards on the way to and from school. That is why Grace’s Safety Patrol team, made up of 5th grade students, takes their job seriously as leaders on campus. The job requires a strong commitment, as these students arrive to school earlier than others and stay later than most.

AAA of East Tennessee recognizes the qualities these students must demonstrate in order to be chosen for the Safety Patrol. They say maturity, reliability and the ability to follow rules while respecting others is of utmost importance. In recognition of a year full of dedication and hard work from the safety patrol teams across the state, AAA of East Tennessee sponsors a safety patrol trip to Washington D.C. Grace students, along with 1,500 other students from East Tennessee made their way to the nation’s capital June 1. Grace’s 2011-2012 Safety Patrol team visited the Udvar-Hazy Space Museum, the National Zoo of Washington,

al method, students will have more opportunities to develop a working knowledge of e-books, research, publishing and communication systems that are available. Melissa McCallen, Grace’s Technology Integration Specialist, says, “Teachers will teach their content area objectives through new and engaging activities with a focus on student-driven learning using technology to communicate and convey ideas in meaningful ways.” By using iPads, Grace students will literally have a world of information at their fingertips. This exciting development demonstrates the effort of Grace Christian Academy to continually add innovative methods and the newest technology to further enhance the learning environment. Students will also be prepared and equipped in the ethical and moral use of technology. We are all aware of the fact that new technologies bring incredible benefits, but they can also open the door for misuse and abuse. At Grace, we plan on teaching about the responsible use of this hands-on technology so that students will be fully informed about the incredible benefits as well as any potential dangers. Armed with this latest educational advancement, future Grace graduates will be better prepared in the rapidly expanding realm of technology, gaining an understanding of its benefits and uses, as well as how it can be incorporated into college work and in the job market. As a result, Grace stuUse of iPads in the classroom will dents will be better equipped to make specifically target English, science a difference in their world, a world and math. With this new education- that is always growing and changing.

D.C., the Smithsonian Institute, and Mount Vernon. The U.S. Capitol visit was also a highlight when they met with U.S. Rep. John Duncan, Jr. and sat in the House of Representa-

tives. Students also visited the White House, Lincoln Memorial, Jefferson Memorial and the Vietnam Memorial, as well as the newest World War II Memorial which stands in front of the

Washington Monument. The 56th Annual AAA Safety Patrol trip was a huge success for our 5th graders at Grace. What a thrilling reward these students received for a year of service!
