Emory Road talk on tap State Rep. Bill Dunn will meet with TDOT officials tomorrow, Sept. 20, to discuss the third phase Dunn of Emory Road improvements. Dunn says the meeting was pushed back from a planned spring date because of uncertainty over cutbacks in federal funds. “With the first two phases completed you can see how much it’s needed, five lanes narrowing down to a cow path,” Dunn says. He adds that projects like this that are fully funded by the state are sometimes delayed. Clark Hamilton, founding president of Better Roads in North Knox (BRINK), will also attend the meeting.

Not a drop spilled HPUD upgrades pay off By Greg Householder During the Labor Day rain deluge a few weeks ago, if the multimillion dollar upgrade to the Hallsdale Powell Utility District’s Beaver Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant had not taken place, the utility and those who live downstream on Beaver Creek would have been in trouble – “big trouble” as HPUD plant and maintenance manager Nick Jackson told the board last Monday. According to Jackson, the plant measured 6 inches in rainfall on Labor Day alone and took in more than 19 million gallons of wastewater which includes not only residential and industrial sewage, but runoff water from the rain as well. The 19 million gallons was the largest one day total the utility has ever experienced.
And they didn’t spill a drop. Not a single drop of untreated water entered Beaver Creek from the plant. Water enters the plant through what is called the headworks. The new headworks can handle 36 million gallons of wastewater per day but the plant can’t treat that much. In the headworks, the bulk of solids are removed through a comblike system that pulls the solids out up a pair of towers. The solids are hauled to the landfill. Water is then pumped out of the headworks to the grit and flow distribution station. Here, fine grit such as small gravel and sand is culled from the water. The water then goes either to the new membrane biological reactor (MBR) or the oxidation ditch, or ox ditch, in part of the old plant. At both locations, the water takes on the look of a chocolate milkshake as biological agents, called “bugs,” literally eat the sewage.
‘Game On!’ Frontier to video Karns at Powell Frontier Communications has launched “Game On!” The original video productions will feature some of the country’s premier high school football games. The series continues Friday, Sept. 23, when the Powell Panthers host the Karns Beavers at Scarbro Stadium.
Hallsdale Powell Utility District will host County Mayor Tim Burchett and county commissioners this week for lunch and a tour of the district’s wastewater treatment plant in Powell. HPUD has not had a violation in more than five years. At the MBR, the water runs through membrane filters that remove microscopic solids. At the oxidation ditch, the water goes through the same process with the “bugs” and the water then goes to a clarifier. Some, but not all, of the water that goes through the MBR or ox ditch goes through a process called waste activated sludge to recapture some of the bugs for future use. The water then is chlorinated to kill any remaining pathogens and then
Frontier is partnering with www.MaxPreps. com to capture contests in seven- to 10-minute “condensed games.” The videos, shot in select Frontier markets, will feature game highlights, key plays, and player and coach interviews. The games will be available on demand 24 hours after the final whistle for free viewing exclusively at www.myfitv.com/GameOn. On game days, Frontier employees will be on site to cheer on their children and local teams, and to distribute prizes and giveaways for football fans. “We are thrilled to bring this program to our
de-chlorinated as a final step before being discharged into Beaver Creek. According to Darren Cardwell, president and CEO of HPUD, the water going into Beaver Creek is of a higher water quality than what is in the creek. HPUD’s onsite laboratory constantly checks the water quality against state standards. While the plant took everything Mother Nature could throw at it, Cardwell did acknowledge problems at various points along the system’s approximately 400-mile collection system. These ranged from backups through manhole covers and missing cleanout caps to backed-up storm drains, and the district is looking at long-term fi xes to these issues. According to Jackson, the Beaver Creek facility currently has a capacity of treating 12-15 million gallons per day, give or take depending on factors such as the amount of stormwa-
communities,” said Mike Byrd, Powell area general manager for Frontier. “High school football is a real passion in the communities we serve. ‘Game On!’ is a great way to be a part of the excitement and let fans and faraway friends and family watch key matchups online. It’s a program where everyone wins.” “Game On!” also features a unique social media component that allows fans to share their experiences by uploading game videos to www. YouTube.com/FrontierGameOn. These videos will be highlighted on the “Game On” YouTube channel and rotated on www.myfitv.com/.

The group originally planned to ride to Chimney Rock and Lake Lure, N.C., but at the first fuel stop near Maggie Valley the riders changed their plans. Instead of continuing on to Chimney Rock, the ministry made a stop at the Wheels through Time Museum in Maggie Valley. After touring the museum of vintage cars and motorcycles, including a jump bike once used by motorcycle daredevil Evel Knievel, the ministry rode a stretch of the Blue Ridge Parkway to just outside of Cherokee and through the Great Smoky Mountains National Park to Townsend. From Townsend, they made their way home. The FBC motorcycle ministry welcomes all riders. The ministry meets at “The Spring” – the annex across Ewing Road from the Powell campus Youth Worship Center at 7 p.m. on the last Tuesday of each month and rides each second Saturday during riding season.

Bridge jump survivor speaks at UT By Wendy Smith Kevin Hines attempted suicide by jumping off the Golden Gate Bridge. But he lived to tell about it and is now committed to sharing his mental health struggles to help others. He spoke at UT last week, courtesy of the UT Counseling Center and VolAware, a campus campaign to prevent violence, suicide and substance abuse. Only 2 percent of those who take the 220-foot leap from the bridge survive, and Hines believes he is still here for a reason. He was born to poor, drugaddicted parents in San Francisco. Both were diagnosed with manic depression, now known as bipolar disorder, and he was just a baby when he was taken from them and placed in foster care. He was eventually adopted by loving parents. He was raised in a beautiful house, went to the right schools, and had an abundance of food and clothes, he says. “How could anything go sideways from here? But it did.” At 17, Kevin was diagnosed with bipolar disorder. He had audial and visual hallucinations and was extremely paranoid. After two years of treatment, he was still in denial, he says. He didn’t take his medications regularly and pretended everything was fine. “I was able to fool everyone.” But his parents were aware of his deep depression on Sept. 25, 2000. The day before, his father had spent two hours on the

phone with a psychiatrist, who told him not to worry, that Kevin was just having another episode. Patrick Hines was still concerned, though, and asked his son to come to work with him that morning. Kevin said no, he wanted to go to school. Kevin says his dad should have asked him outright if he was thinking about hurting himself. Those who are harboring suicidal thoughts typically answer that question honestly. After Patrick dropped him off at school, Kevin boarded a bus for the Golden Gate Bridge and cried the entire way. He spoke to the bus driver, then cried as he paced around the parking lot for 40 minutes. A police officer on a bicycle passed him. A tourist asked him to take her picture. He thinks that if one of those people had shown concern, he wouldn’t have jumped. As soon as his feet left the bridge rail, he knew he’d made a mistake. He was
falling head-first, but managed to turn his body into a seated position before he hit the water, which probably saved his life. Those who commit suicide by jumping from a bridge often die a slow, violent death, Kevin says. He found himself 40 feet under the water with a broken back and several shattered vertebra, but he somehow managed to reach the surface. Even though he’d felt he needed to die to relieve his emotional pain, he now had a strong will to live. He endured months of intense physical and emotional treatment after the ordeal. He now follows a prescription for mental health that includes therapy, medication, exercise, a healthy diet and plenty of sleep, and says he will never again attempt to harm himself. “Every day I wake up is a good day.”

ter versus sewage. The plant uses the equalization lagoons from the old plant for storage and the two lagoons have a 10 million gallon capacity each. During the recent rain deluge, the equalization lagoons were used to hold excess water and as the plant digested the incoming water it was pumped back through the headworks for treatment. According to plant superintendent Ronnie Qualls, the plant was built in 1963 and was upgraded through the years. The MBR went online during the winter of 2010. In other business at last
After water goes through the headworks and grit removal, it may pass through this membrane biological reactor at the Beaver Creek Wastewater Treatment Plant, where “bugs” or biological agents literally consume the sewage. The water then passes through membranes for further cleaning. Monday’s board meeting, Cardwell reported that 31 meters were set and there were 27 sewer inspections in August, a marked improvement over July. The board also approved a loan resolution through the state
revolving fund for $4.8 million for improvements to the Raccoon Valley and Beaver Creek Wastewater Treatment plants. Several payments for other projects were approved by the board.

Sizzle or fizzle Candidates make final pitches
Fun and funds from films
With tax revenue flat-lining, governments need new sources of funds. There are 8 million stories in the Naked County aching for a shot at the big screen.
Acclaimed director Dean Rice brings you a story for the ages, the tale of the man who wouldn’t say quit. They called him – “Dirty Timmy.” School board member: You got nothing, Dirty Timmy. Just try bringing that Carter Elementary project back here for a vote. Dirty Timmy: I know what you’re thinking, punk. Does he have five votes or only four? Tell you the truth, I forgot myself in all this excitement. So you have to ask yourself: Do I feel lucky? Well, do you, punk? Dirty Timmy, the man who stood tall even when his best developer deserted him. Devon: I’m pulling out, Timmy. We’re getting too much heat, and Commissioner Broyles is just too powerful to go up against. Dirty Timmy: You disappoint me, but I’ll find some new Partners. The “don’t miss” film of the year, the startling conclusion of “Dirty Timmy” will stay with you forever! Coming in October, November, December or whenever.
‘Beck: I told you so’
This provocative documentary from director Sam McKenzie captures the Beck Cultural Exchange Center’s struggle to clear its name and keep its doors open after its funding was slashed and County Commission ordered an audit of the center’s books. “The auditor ‘went the extra mile’ and didn’t find anything,” McKenzie said. “I’d been saying all along the audit would come out clean.” But the film reveals that the battle may not be over. “Beck got a good report, but the critics may not be satisfied,” said McKenzie. “I’m guessing they’ll say the auditor was incompetent or the audit didn’t go far enough.” McKenzie’s incisive analysis introduces what he calls “the Obama factor” in local politics. “Although their logic escapes me, some will blame Obama. Not enough rain? Too much rain? It’s Obama’s fault. That’s just how things are around here.” McKenzie plans to release “Beck: I told you so” in late September.
The Rogero Armada gathered at Gov. Ned McWherter Park to set sail for Sequoyah Park and the symbolism was palatable. Madeline Rogero climbed on a rock to address her followers: “We’re going right through the middle of downtown, along the South Knox waterfront. Let’s enjoy each other and focus on quality growth and our natural assets,” she said. It was a perfect Sunday afternoon. The paddlers wore maroon and white T-shirts. Most tacked campaign signs on their watercraft. A couple even brought two black Labs, suitably attired in life jackets. “Watch out for each other,” someone yelled as they set out. “Don’t drink the water!” yelled another. Team Rogero may look back on this event and wish they had gone door-to-door instead. But for one day the political outliers from eight years ago looked ready to take control of their city government. What was their reception in Sequoy-
Sandra Clark ah Park? Madeline said fresh made Cruze Farm ice cream awaited. It’s doubtful the Sequoyah residents stood with pitchforks to repel the invaders. Rogero has been around long enough to feel familiar. She’s worked for Bill Haslam, Dolly Parton and Colin Powell. The sun is shining on her campaign for mayor. There’s not a cloud in sight. Mark Padgett looks like a mayor (or Robert Redford playing “The Candidate”). At age 33, he’s raised the most money and produced the slickest advertising. His family (wife, kid and dog) beams from giant billboards. And no candidate has worked harder. So why is Mark not catching on? Politicians say he’s not paid his dues. He lacks loyalty among hardcore
Democrats (they’re for Madeline) and Republicans (most are for Ivan Harmon). Padgett has support from the business community, but not the business establishment. For credibility, he needed endorsements. But Madeline scored with the News Sentinel, Metro Pulse and the Public Trust PAC. Mark failed to sell the Haslam establishment. Maybe he should have nailed up some yard signs for Bill in that 2010 gubernatorial race. City employees want to back the winner. That’s why many voted against their self-interest in supporting Haslam in 2003. They don’t need to do that this time. And don’t discount the support Ivan Harmon has among city employees. Padgett is third among this group of motivated, surebet voters. But Padgett doesn’t need to beat Rogero on Sept. 27. He just needs to beat Harmon and prevent Rogero from winning outright with 50 percent plus one. Will Mark sizzle or fizzle? We’ll know in a week and a day.
GOSSIP AND LIES ■ Anthony Weiner not only lost his dignity with a foolish Internet posting. He also lost his Congressional seat to a Republican, the first to hold the New York seat since the 1920s. ■ John Stancil, running for City Council at-large, says he’s been to so many candidate forums that he could give any other candidate’s stump speech without notes. ■ Cappy Padgett, Mark’s dog, has a Facebook page with 300 friends as of last Thursday. He even has a favorite quote from that good Democrat Harry S Truman: “You want a friend in Washington? Get a dog.” ■ Marilyn Roddy ’s youngest daughter is counting votes, telling her mom that she’s up to six. “With this turnout, that may be enough!” joked the candidate. ■ Got friends? A quick look at Facebook shows 1,381 people “like” Madeline Rogero, while 1,531 like Ivan Harmon. Mark Padgett has 2,222 friends while Joe Hultquist has 341 and Bo Bennett has 417. The prize for most friends, however, goes to County Commissioner Jeff Ownby with 3,265.
New hires for new mayor
Early voting has been weak. Based on voting to date, the city total on Sept. 27 may be close to 18,000 – which is less than 20 percent of eligible voters. This is unfortunate, as 2011 marks the first time in 24 years that someone other than Ashe or Haslam (and Dan Brown for 11 months) will be mayor of Get ready for the horror ride of your life.

voter turnout on Nov. 8 will increase by another 20 percent. Should the race be decided on Sept. 27, then the winner has a long transition which is helpful. Who will a new mayor hire? My estimate is that Rogero offers the least change in personnel as she worked closely as a former city director with almost everyone there now. Larry Martin and Bill Lyons are each $1,000 donors to her campaign. They would likely stay if she wins and depart should one of the other candidates prevail. Ivan Harmon would probably pick Rick Emmett as his chief of staff. This should
be reassuring to those who question Harmon’s executive skills as Emmett is a low key, steady and even cautious longtime city employee. He currently oversees many downtown projects. Who Padgett picks is anyone’s guess, but it’s safe to say he would bring in the most personnel changes. His father, Mike Padgett, would have influence. It is unlikely that any of the mayoral candidates would change either the current fire or police chiefs. Stan Sharp and David Rausch are widely applauded as able and solid. Notes: A recent mailer urging support for four candidates has each denying involvement. The four candidates are Becky Massey for senator, Padgett for mayor, and George Wallace and Marshall Stair for council. Obviously, someone spent money and effort to create
the mailer and violated state law by not showing who is paying for it. On the other hand, each of the four named candidates had their picture mailed without cost to them to hundreds if not thousands of voters. ■ Interim council member Charlie Thomas baffled many when he withdrew as a write-in candidate after signing up just a few weeks earlier. This assures Mark Campen’s election as one of the four new council members. The brief on and off campaign of Thomas did cause Campen to campaign more actively than he had previously done. Campen has a strong environmental bent and favors parks and greenways. He is informed on issues but will be reserved when he speaks out. He brings integrity and knowledge to his new position.

He said Sterling’s resignation stated a ting 6th District City Council representative, said he’s stayclear reason – to play golf. “I assume, and hope, ing out of the mayor’s race that the next mayor would – “But I do have a favorite, keep the (new) chief (David which I won’t tell.” He said he never, ever Rausch), who has done an excellent job. We had some ex- expected to become mayor
of his hometown, but that’s where he finds himself since his City Council colleagues elected him interim mayor after Bill Haslam got elected governor. “Growing up, I never thought about being mayor. But things happen and you never know what is in your future,” he said. “When the dust settled, I was left standing.” Recently married to his longtime sweetheart, Cathy Ann Smith, Brown says he’s searched the historical record and has not found another mayor who got married while in office. Otherwise, he says he has very purposefully tried to keep from making any major changes. “I have not had to lay off anybody or raise taxes, while we have continued to provide all the basic services,” he said, adding that he didn’t think it would have been appropriate to replace any department heads.
“I believe it’s good to keep things on a sound footing and not to have any major upheaval.” He’s proud of the way that city employees have responded to the weather emergencies created by this year’s series of damaging storms, and he’s enthusiastic about the new curbside recycling program that begins in October. He’s also a big booster of the redevelopment dis-
tricts that have been created on Cumberland and Magnolia Avenues, North Central Avenue and the South Knox Waterfront. “For the last three years, the city has been offering the same level of services with static or shrinking budgets. Thanks to responsible budgeting and cooperation between the administration and city council, city government has been able to avoid
cutting back on services. I am confident we will be OK.” Brown ended his talk with a plea for civility. “One of biggest challenges before us is to have respect for civility and open dialogue. Those of us in public office have the job of resolving many of these issues, and that job can be made a lot more difficult by the tone of the dialogue during the debate.”

PULL UP A CHAIR … | Jake Mabe
‘Find out next week …’ Film buff looks back at classic movie serials
ou could get in for anywhere from 9 to 15 cents. You often were treated to a double feature, usually a B-western, sometimes a two-reel short like the “Three Stooges,” and, often, a cliffhanger serial. Don Calhoun spent many a Saturday during his childhood at one of five theaters that were then located in downtown Kingsport, where he grew up, usually in the three that catered to the films he liked. One of them, the Center, would show a kiddie program, usually with a serial, a cartoon and a B-western, and even give you a piece of cake if it was your birthday, all for 15 cents. The bus station was located next to the theater, so Don and his brother would usually hitch a ride on the bus into town on Saturday mornings from their home out in the country. Often, they’d get a Krystal or Blue Circle hamburger for a dime and maybe buy a Sporting News. “We were poor as church mice, but my brother and I usually had something going. We trapped, sold ginseng, dried out herbs. Our dad would rent us a small tobacco plot, so we’d have a little more money to spend.” Sometimes Don and his brother would go to the Gem, which would often show two B-westerns, usually from the late 1930s to 1950s, as well as a two-reel comedy. Admission was 9 cents. Other times they might run over to the Realto. “The Realto was my favorite. They’d show a serial chapter, a Bwestern, like a Rocky Lane or a Monte Hale, and sometimes even a third booking like “1,001 Thrills,” a Sherlock Holmes or a Boston Blackie or the color Ali Babas.”
Don Calhoun shows a close up of the Better Little Book (formerly known as the Big Little Books) of the classic Republic serial “Dick Tracy Returns.”
Calhoun kept his love for these classic films, particularly B-westerns and movie serials, and began collecting both memorabilia and films as an adult. He can remember being overjoyed when author Alan G. Barbour came out with two books on the genres in the early 1970s, “The Thrill of it All” and “Days of Thrill and Adventure,” well before the days of home video. Since the 1980s, Calhoun has served, on and off, as a producer and co-host of Marshal Andy’s popular “Riders of the Silver Screen,” which airs classic B-westerns and movie serials. The program began on the old WKCH Channel 43 and now airs on local PBS affiliate WKOP (Channel 15) at 10:30 a.m. Saturdays. Calhoun will offer tidbits about the serials and movies and often display a lobby card or a poster or a comic book, something tied to the film and/or the serial. When we sat down to talk about movie serials recently, Calhoun wanted to make one thing clear up front. “I’m not an expert on serials. I just really enjoy them.” But, he
Don Calhoun shows off some of his movie serials memorabilia at his home. Calhoun provides trivia and other tidbits for the B-westerns and classic serials shown on Marshal Andy’s “Riders of the Silver Screen” at 10:30 a.m. Saturdays on WKOP-TV (PBS) in Knoxville. Photos by Jake Mabe knows more about them than anybody you’re likely to meet. Calhoun says that movie serials began in 1913, the year after the first full-length motion pictures were produced. The early serials often featured women in peril. One of the first was called “The Perils of Pauline.” The “catch” of the serials is the (sometimes literal) cliffhanger in which the hero is left in some precarious situation and the audience would have to come back to the theater the following week to discover the character’s fate. The early serials ran anywhere from 10 to 20 chapters (Calhoun says one ran 119 episodes!), but later, when serials reached their peak in the late 1930s and early 1940s, 15 chapters
were the norm, with the first chapter usually being the longest. As the serials hit their stride, they would feature everything from westerns like “Zorro” and “The Adventures of Jesse James” to comic book heroes like Superman and Captain Marvel to detective and adventure stories like Dick Tracy and the Canadian Mounties. The “Dick Tracy” serials starring Ralph Byrd are some of the most
popular ever produced. Calhoun says a majority of serial buffs consider “Dick Tracy vs. Crime Inc.” to be the best of the series, although he prefers “Dick Tracy Returns.” Virtually all film historians agree that Republic Pictures produced the best serials. “Why are Republic serials better?” Calhoun asks. “It’s not the stars. They had good scripts, yes, but it’s the production itself. They’d do miniatures (small model sets) up on a hill or by the water with a real sky behind them. They had the best stuntmen in the business and the cinematography was excellent.” “Riders of the Silver Screen” is currently airing an enjoyable serial, “S.O.S. Coast Guard,” starring Ralph “Dick Tracy” Byrd and Bela Lugosi. After it wraps, Calhoun says the plan is to begin showing serials produced after 1944, which were shortened in length due to rising production costs. Doing so, he says, will give Calhoun and Marshal Andy Smalls more time to chat about the films, air a B-western following the serial and also allow time at the end for Andy’s musical segments. One thing about it, though. Calhoun says you have you put yourself in a certain frame of mind to really appreciate the classic serials of yesteryear. “They were made for kids. They weren’t made for adults. Watch them from the standpoint that you’re in that era. People weren’t jaded; it was a good versus evil theme, kind of like watching B-westerns. Don’t expect the technology of today.” But expect to be entertained, perhaps even expect to be returned to those Saturday silver screens of yesterday, if you lived through it. Before long, you’ll get sucked in, waiting in anticipation to find out what happens next week, just as it was meant to be. Jake Mabe is a movie nut born about 40 years too late.

VanOver, Mabe to wed Sams celebrates 80 years The Rev. Bob H. Sams celebrated his 80th birthday in August with family and friends. Sams and his wife, Sylvia, have two sons, Tim and Tony Sams of Cleveland, Tenn., and a daughter, Becky Sams, of Gibbs. Grandchildren are Lindsey Sams of Gibbs and Brandy and Bryan Sams of Cleveland.
Birthdays Maddox Wilson Cordeiro celebrated his sixth birthday Aug. 3, with a big party at Monkey Joeâ€™s in Atlanta and a second party at his grandparentsâ€™ house. Maddox is the son of Ashley Wilson and Keith Cordeiro. Grandparents are Kim and Jon Lewis of Atlanta and Vicki and Steve Wilson of Powell. Greatgrandmothers are Gloria Sise of Powell and Terri Cordeiro of McDonough, Ga. Gracie Gregory turned 6 on Sept. 15. She is the daughter of Rob and Michelle Gregory. She has a younger brother, Chase. Grandparents are Gloria Gregory, Pat Sisson and Bob Gregory. She is a 1st grader at BrickeyMcCloud Elementary.
Jennifer Denise VanOver and Gregory Jacob â€œJakeâ€? Mabe will be married 5 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 24, at the Museum of Appalachia. Jennifer is the daughter of Betty Webb of Oak Ridge. She holds three associate degrees from Roane State Community College and a bachelorâ€™s degree in organizational management from Tusculum College. She is employed as an information technology applications analyst/physician informatics representative with Covenant Health. Jake is the son of Gail and Mike McConkey and Larry and Kim Mabe, all of Halls. He holds a bachelorâ€™s degree in history from UT and is a columnist/features editor with Shopper-News. After a honeymoon trip to Hawaii, the couple will be at home in Halls.
Veterans open house upcoming All veterans are invited to an open house sponsored by American Legion Post 212, Veterans of Foreign Wars, the Tri-County Veterans Honor Guard and the American Legion Auxiliary from 1-5 p.m. Saturday, Oct. 8, at 140 Veteran St., Maynardville. Entertainment and refreshments will be provided. This is an opportunity for veterans and family to meet each other or join these organizations. No alcohol allowed on the premises.
In electronic newsletters, Jerry Holloway says there ainâ€™t no Vol like an old Vol. Holloway, Tennessee right tackle in 1968, just out the line from famous guard Charley Rosenfelder and famous center Chip Kell, enjoys the daunting challenge of keeping lettermen and friends informed about each other. Focal points are health and welfare reports and requests for prayers. Thatâ€™s right, even big, tough former football players know when they are in trouble. Holloway memos generate awesome results. You should have seen the outpouring of love when Hal Wantland was dying. Old pass-catcher Johnny Mills said he could feel the prayers when he was flat on his back from a heart attack. Richmond Flowers expressed gratitude for encouraging support when he faced prostate crisis. Former coach Charley Coffey led the prayer circle at Ron Jarvisâ€™ home when
ETTAC webinar rescheduled Initially scheduled for Thursday, Sept. 15, the East Tennessee Technology Access Center has moved its nationwide webinar about online employment applications and website accessibility to Tuesday, Sept. 27. It will be held from 1:30 to 3 p.m. in ETTACâ€™s office at 116 Childress St. The webinar will teach participants how to make their online applications fully accessible to people with disabilities. The program is free but registration is required. Info: 219-0130.
Exhibit of Gombert and Beene Tennessee Valley Unitarian Unversalist Church, 2931 Kingston Pike, will host an exhibit of works by artists Carl Gombert and Ricky Beene through September.
Hammerhead was running out of time. Joan Cronan, as interim vice chancellor responsible for UT athletics and other things, attended the Jarvis funeral and was warmed by the Volunteer family togetherness. She assembled her staff the next morning and said this is how all Tennessee athletics should be, more we and less me. There are inspiring stories of how Steve Kiner, Elliott Gammage, Jerry Cooley and a host of old Volunteers and other friends have kept Walter Chadwick functional for the decades since his terrible auto accident. They take Walter to lunch each Wednesday. They help him collect and sell aluminum
cans. Former coach Bill Battle gave generously to install a chair lift in Walterâ€™s condo. Holloway and former receiver Mike Price, associates at Oliver Smith Realty and Auction, keep up with as many old Vols as possible. Price, a natural conversationalist, is point man for incoming information. For example, he stays in close contact with Bubba Wyche, quarterback who helped shock Alabama in â€™67. Bubba has vertebra issues, a blood disorder, breathing problems and pain, lots of pain. He is too tough to give up. Old Vol Robbie Franklin monitors Stan Mitchell, fullback in the mid-60s, now in a nursing home in Sparta. Mike LaSorsa, end and captain in â€™61, is in failing health. Hundreds of us are vitally concerned. Richard Pickens, all-SEC fullback in the late â€™60s, is just learning that â€œwe will always care.â€? Jim McDonald, teammate at Young
High and UT, was guide as Richard returned to Knoxville from his previous life in Spartanburg. Pickens has been diagnosed with short-term memory problems. He no longer drives. Some think concussions may be the root of his ailment. Former captain Dick Williams discovered that Pickens needed a special chair for comfortable TV viewing. You get to guess how many chair offers came tumbling in. At one of the prayer meetings, former line coach Ray Trail raised a question: Do you think modern players will get together in years to come the way you guys do now? Trail answered his own question. He doesnâ€™t think so. He thinks he sees more football individuals and less football togetherness. The loss of athletic dorms might be relevant. There is hope. Derek Dooleyâ€™s Vol for Life concept might be the glue that holds younger groups together. Weâ€™ll see. Marvin West invites reader response. His address is firstname.lastname@example.org.
â€˜Bluzinâ€™ in the Valley 2011â€™ is Saturday The first-ever â€œBluzinâ€™ in the Valley 2011â€? will be held Saturday, Sept. 24, at the Raccoon Valley Festival grounds at 265 Patt Lane in Powell.

Trees I have known Let the heavens be glad, and let the earth rejoice, let the sea roar, and all that fills it; let the field exult, and everything in it. Then shall all the trees of the forest sing for joy before the Lord. … (Psalm 96: 11-13a NRSV) I claim several trees that don’t actually belong to me. Not, as I think about it, that any tree really belongs to me. I somehow think that trees are a little like people; they belong to themselves. However, there are trees, and then there are my trees. Some trees are very special to me, for various reasons, and regardless of whose property they are on, I think of them as mine. The house where I grew up has always been surrounded by enormous oaks, but there was a maple tree in the front yard that was the first of “my” trees. My tree had a lowslung, sturdy branch, just the right height for climbing, and just the right size for sitting on. It also had another branch: a smaller branch that grew right above the big one, and which functioned much like the safety bar on a roller coaster. My tree stood near the front corner of the property, and so was private, not readily visible to my family inside the house. That tree became my private retreat. I read most of “Little Women” there, as well as many other books. I climbed there, and thought, and prayed, and cried, and pretended, and dreamed and wondered. I was saddened not too long ago to drive by that house and see that “my” tree had been cut down. It appeared to have been damaged, maybe in one of the windstorms of the spring, and, when I saw it, it was lying on the ground, in great chunks. The next time I passed the house, it was gone altogether. But there are other trees that I have never climbed, never touched. They are also “my” trees. I love them like old friends because of their grace, beauty and steadfast presence.

Lynn Hutton One is a tree on the road I drive to work every day. I am not sure what kind it is because in the summer it is quite unremarkable, and I don’t notice it at all, so I haven’t analyzed its leaves. But in the winter, during a snowfall, its leaning trunk catches and holds the snow on its north side. The trunk is crooked, and the snow, following the line of the tree, looks like a lightning bolt, zigzagging from sky to earth. There is another tree that I love in all seasons. It is an enormous sycamore that stands in a small vale about a block off my route. I have to look carefully, and am glad when the traffic light turns red and stops my progress there, allowing me to savor the tree’s angular, spreading branches. Its white bark gleams in all seasons: stark as bones in the winter, shining like a candle in the spring, showing like a glimpse of lace when the tree is in full summer leaf and shimmering softly through the wide yellow leaves in the fall. I give thanks for my friends, “my” trees. I remember, I remember, The fir trees dark and high; I used to think their slender tops Were close against the sky: It was a childish ignorance, But now ’tis little joy To know I’m farther off from heaven Than when I was a boy. (“I Remember, I Remember,” Thomas Hood)

Panther D-Line shows depth Powell faces Karns Friday
SPORTS NOTES ■ Knox Silver Sox 9-year-olds baseball team needs players for fall and spring 2012. Competitive USSSA level. Info: 363-1483 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
By Greg Householder Replacing Steven Ross and Austin Benson, the bookend defensive ends who were responsible for much of Powell High School’s defensive success last year, is a daunting task for any coach. Panther head coach Matt Lowe is attacking the problem “by the numbers.” By that, he is running multiple players through the end positions. “Having multiple people play those positions gives us fresh legs and it gives us big defensive ends and fast defensive ends,” says Lowe. The Powell defensive front has had its share of injuries this year. Big Tony Foster has been out since the spring but is expected to return soon. The 6-0, 315-pound senior was the “youngster” on last year’s defensive front. Junior Cody Jett suffered a serious season ending injury in the first game at Rhea County. Seeing lots of action at defensive end are: senior Drake Owenby (6-2, 220 pounds), senior offensive lineman Koby Crisp (6-2, 255 pounds), senior Sinjin Myers (6-1, 185 pounds), senior Zach York (6-0, 180 pounds), senior Darrian Farmer (6-0, 210 pounds) and junior Shar-ron Moore (5-10, 215 pounds). In the center, seniors Wesley Sparks (5-10, 235 pounds) and Cory Headrick (6-1, 250 pounds) share snaps with sophomore Brady Scaff (6-2, 285 pounds). After drubbing Halls 42-0 in the Battle of Emory Road on Sept. 2, the

PBPA Business Spotlight
Heiskell Community Center
By Sandra Clark
By Greg Householder The Heiskell Community Center does not have a long history. It was founded a mere eight years ago by then pastor of Heiskell United Methodist Church the Rev. Pat Bishop. But it sure has grown. Last Tuesday, Janice White of the Heiskell Community Center was the Business Spotlight for September at the Powell Business and Professional Associations’ monthly meeting. White told of the growth of the center’s largest program – the Heiskell Seniors. Starting in 2008 with 23 participants, it has grown to more than 150 on the roll and this month the center had 83 seniors enjoying a free lunch. The senior program provides a lunch and informational speakers each month for area seniors at no cost to them. The program also provides bingo in the afternoon. The center organizes trips for the seniors, the next one being a trip to Chattanooga for a ride on the Southern Belle riverboat. The center conducts sev-

Some of us hear fine; others don’t quite understand the sounds we’re hearing; still others keep turning up the television and saying, “Huh?” Gary and Belinda Weaver of Weaver Hearing Aid Center noticed something interesting during recent “roundabout” tours by neighborhood groups in the Franklin Square shopping center. “Most people just don’t know where to start (when faced with hearing loss),” said Gary. “I told them: find somebody you trust, somebody you know. Find a professional who is knowledgeable about what they do.” Gary and Belinda work with individuals having hearing issues in a positive and encouraging way. They believe if the proper testing is done and the appropriate solution is applied, good results will follow. “We’re a personal service organization,” said Gary. “We will be upfront and explain what to expect from our testing.” Gary is a licensed hearing instrument specialist; Belinda is a nurse. “As lifelong Knoxvillians, we know the people who live here and we organize our services to help them. There is no high pressure and we like to follow up over the years.” Gary is part of the family that owned and operated Weaver Funeral Home. He and Belinda have owned Weaver Hearing Aid Center
Gary and Belinda Weaver of Weaver Hearing Aid Center. for 12 years. Each new patient interview is conducted without charge. It includes a personal lifestyle component to enable Gary to learn the specific needs of each person. “Every patient is different and is treated as an individual, receiving the time and attention necessary to achieve positive results,” he said. If Gary suspects a medical condition, he will refer to an ear, nose and throat specialist. He wants to provide hearing instruments to healthy people, not cover up symptoms that can cause problems later: “Cause no harm.” The second step is to schedule a full battery of audiomatic tests, using the same equipment used by audiologists. Gary will establish a baseline and follow his patients “through the years.” He says many people have an outdated image of hearing instruments.

R. Sage Kohler, an agent with State Farm Insurance in Powell, has earned the Chartered Financial Consultant (ChFC) professional designation from The Kohler American College in Bryn Mawr, Pa.

Kohler took over the local State Farm Agency after the passing of longtime Powell resident and business leader Andy Anderson last year. She is a member of the Powell Business and Professional Association and plans a run for president-elect of that organization for 2012. She is currently the committee chair of the PBPA’s Teen Driver Awareness Program. Additionally, Kohler teaches Junior Achievement at Powell High School and was a participating and funding agent of Thursday Night Rivalry football at the Oak Ridge game two weeks ago. She is a member of Business Networking International and a member of the National Association of Insurance and Financial Advisors.

“Like televisions and telephones, hearing instruments have changed dramatically,” he says. New models pack more punch into less space, and the cost is dropping. Weaver Hearing recently added two new manufacturers with economy lines – full digital hearing aids but without the multifunctionality of models preferred by the younger set. “They’re not connected to your TV or cell phone, but they fit the lifestyle of those 60+.” Spoken like a true 50-something, Gary! Bottom line: If you’ve got a question, come in and ask Gary or Belinda. Their office is located in Franklin Square near Sullivan’s. It’s open five days a week, evenings and weekends by appointment. “We’re constantly looking for the best instruments,” said Gary. “This is what I do.”

International Gold, Silver and Diamond Buyers paying on the spot for valuables this week in Alcoa and Knoxville
By David Morgan STAFF WRITER
Alcoa and Knoxville-area residents are in for a rare treat when the International Gold, Silver and Diamond Buyers (IGSDB) host an event here, from September 20th - 24th. The company has identified this region as prime territory for purchasing your
While most people don’t have buckets of dental gold at their fingertips, they do have $750 worth of scrap gold scattered throughout their homes or mismatched earrings. In addition to scrap gold, fine jewelry and
precious metals—especially gold and silver. The IGSDB estimates that local residents have millions of dollars worth of valuables that they no longer need or want. That is where the IGSDB comes in—they specialize in buying those items from local sellers in the U.S., Canada and Europe. Items like gold coins, scrap gold, sterling silver
diamonds, coins are a big hit. Offers will be made on all coins dated 1970 and earlier—gold coins, silver, silver dollars, half dollars, quarters, nickels and dimes. Enright explains, “U.S. coins made before 1965 are worth more than their legal tender amount because they contain 90% silver. Rare dates and mint marks can make them even more valuable. We recently paid
and tea sets also diamond rings are in high demand right now, and IGSDB is purchasing massive quantities of them on behalf of their global network of collectors, dealers and refineries. Currently on an international tour, IGSDB has included Alcoa and Knoxville on its list of stops for this week. Residents are urged to mark their calendar for
$78,000 for an amazing coin collection. One couple brought in a rusty coffee can filled with silver coins, sawdust, and a dead spider. The can had been in the basement for years. We were happy to send them home with a check for more than $700!” Alcoa and Knoxville-area residents should start collecting their valuables now to bring to the free

gold. This is a seller’s market, so don’t miss out!”
Providing an economic boost to each region it visits, the IGSDB projects to pay out $350,000 at each event—a testament to the high volume of items they purchase and the prime prices being paid. Offers are made based on rarity, numismatic value, condition and market value. Company spokesman Matthew Enright says, “We just paid $4,700 for a loose 1.25—carat diamond. Our mission is to pay local residents on the spot for sterling silverware, fine jewelry, coins and precious metals—especially silver and gold.” The company has seen a huge influx of gold lately. “Customers have been scrambling to cash into the record-high value of gold,” adds Enright. For those who are unsure if their items are genuine gold or silver, or simply costume, company will test it for free. “The best strategy is to bring all items to the show for a free evaluation from our specialists. It always amazes me how a small handful of gold and silver can turn into hundreds of dollars in just a few moments. We test, weigh, and buy items right on the spot,” Enright says. At a recent show, a small—town dentist had a nice pay day. “I have been collecting dental gold for years from patients who didn’t want their extracted teeth. It really added up—my check is for over $31,000!”
