A judge’s trial
On the morning of June 11, 1992, in the wee hours before dawn, Carolyn Susano awoke in time to see her husband dive through the screen of a window in their second floor bedroom. Charles Susano, a lifelong sleepwalker, woke up on the ground, Carolyn, their youngest son and a neighbor surrounding him. He didn’t know how he got there. And he couldn’t get up.

PHS swim team to hold info meeting The Powell High swim team will hold a parent information and sign-up meeting 6:30 p.m. Tuesday, Aug. 27, in the PHS library. Swimming is a club sport. Membership is open to 9th through 12th graders who have an interest in competitive swimming. Powell Middle School students may join as well, practicing as one team, but competing only against other middle school swimmers. The Knox-Area Interscholastic Swim League, which governs high school swimming, requires that swimmers meet all academic and residency requirements of their school, as for any other interscholastic sport. Swimmers will be required to have a sports physical prior to the first practice. Info: Tammy Rolen, email@example.com.
Norwood pilot program a ‘win-win’ By Betty Bean Liz Thacker, who works for the Great Schools Partnership, is about to celebrate her first anniversary as Norwood Elementary School’s first resource coordinator for community programs. She’s happy to report that the Norwood pilot program had a successful year, serving more than 120 students with daily attendance averaging about 90 students. She’s also very happy to be able to report that test scores of the children who were regular participants showed real, measurable progress. Running a pilot program can be scary, she said. “It’s exciting and nerve-wracking all at once. You have no handbook. You’re creating the manual.” It’s the little moments that tug at her heart, like remembering the grandfather who would come and keep his granddaughter company at dinnertime. “He rarely ate, but he showed up every night and would sit with her. Pretty soon a group of children started eating with them. It was a nice thing to see,” said Thacker, who is hoping he’ll be back at the after-school sessions again this year when she gets small-group instruction going. She’s aiming for Sept. 6. She’s also hoping to see another parent she got to know last year – a mother who spoke almost no English and relied on her children to help her communicate. “This mom was leery about her kids staying after school. Through her children, I convinced the mom to let her kids stay. She worked on learning English, and I knew the day she handed me the phone and asked me if I could call CAC and schedule them to pick her up that

Why a blueway? By Jake Mabe As Knox County explores the possibility of designating Beaver Creek as a blueway – basically, a greenway on water – one might ask, “Why?” For three good reasons, Knox County Watershed Coordinator Roy Arthur told the Halls Business and Professional Association at Beaver Brook Country Club last week. “One, it draws people into your community. Two, it will raise your property values. And three, it pulls businesses into the communities.” Not to mention the fact that – as Arthur stated in an earlier in-
terview with the Shopper-News – when Beaver Creek becomes navigable for small crafts such as kayaks and canoes, debris jams must be removed, which are currently causing both localized flooding and bank erosion along Beaver Creek. “When a tree falls over the creek, it catches everything flowing down the creek, including couches and cars.” Arthur said removing debris jams would also improve the creek’s water quality and create a more natural flow. While residents with property adjoining the creek own some of
the land underneath it as well as the banks, the water itself is considered “waters of the state.” Arthur said if Beaver Creek is designated as a blueway, signs would be posted at launch points and be given to property owners who want them alerting blueway users that exiting their crafts at any point along the blueway would be considered trespassing. He said that if anyone had an accident while using the blueway, Knox County would be liable, not the property owner. “People could fish out of their craft if they so desire.” If the county green-lights the blueway, the first phase would be built at Harrell Road Park in Karns. The second phase would be built at Clayton Park in Halls.

Running out of air The surprising reason why Butch DeBord couldn’t catch his breath Symptoms Tucked away in West Knoxville, not too far from the noise and bustle of busy streets and business as usual, Butch DeBord sits in a home on a little piece of paradise. It’s family farmland with ﬁelds of green and a garden spilling over with colorful ﬂowers. He drinks it all in with the appreciation only a man of his age can. He’s 65 years old – retirement age – and the things he’s experienced have caused him to understand how precious being alive and at peace can be. Aside from the usual lifelong journey of experiences, Butch and his wife, Julia, have had to overcome some health obstacles to keep their quality of life. Most recently, Butch had aortic valve replacement at Parkwest Medical Amy Dale, R.N., and exercise Center. He remembers when he ﬁrst started to physiologist Rhonnda have some problems. Cloinger are part of the “I would lie down and I’d start having team helping Butch DeBord breathing issues,” Butch recalls. “I thought it and other heart patients was just stress and didn’t pay any attention to through successful cardiac it. One day my breathing was worse and I told rehabilitation. my wife ‘I probably ought to get this checked.’ ” Butch went to Parkwest, where tests showed his heart seemed to be in full working order, but ﬂuid had accumulated around his On days when Butch DeBord isn’t at cardiac rehab, heart and lungs. A successful procedure took he walks the long driveway at his farm or works the care of that and Butch went back home and on treadmill, things he couldn’t have done just a few about his business. months ago. But in February of this year, the breathing problems cropped up again on a Sunday afternoon. He waited to see if his breathing would explained the diagnosis further to Butch. “He quickly, it also happened very successfully. get better the next day. It didn’t. “Dr. Pollard did a fantastic job. I couldn’t said it was leaking very badly,” Butch says. “On a scale of 1 to 4 with 4 being the worst, he said have been more pleased,” Butch says. “The Diagnosis whole experience with Parkwest – and I’m I was a 4.” Finding himself back at Parkwest, Butch saying this in all sincerity – was just absolutely learned his heart was racing at 138 beats per Treatment the best.

He needn’t have worried. “They are just so good, and I was so impressed with their professionalism,” says Butch. He was also impressed at the way the patients are monitored. “You think they’re not watching you, but they are,” keeping a close eye on the heart rate of every participant and paying attention to make sure everyone is getting just the right amount of physical activity. But the exercise was only one part of what made a difference for Butch. He took advantage of the education offered there, as well. “You go for an hour of exercise, but you have an hour of classroom time, too.” Butch says. “It’s just such a comprehensive program.” Patients who go through Parkwest’s cardiac rehab program learn everything they need to know about living a healthy life after heart surgery. That includes diet, how to order at restaurants, stress management, potential reactions to medications, fall prevention, monitoring blood pressure and cholesterol, and more. “My notebook is still right there with all my handouts,” Butch points to a binder near the couch. “That’s kind of my little encyclopedia I go back to, to refresh my memory.”
Lifestyle change Butch says he and his wife are living healthier lives now. He’s more careful about what he eats and exercises at least ﬁve days a week. “I bought a treadmill, I have my driveway I can walk on here at home,” Butch says. “I’m up to 15-pound hand weights.” And he was so impressed with Parkwest Cardiac Rehabilitation Center he’s decided to keep it as a part of his healthy lifestyle. “I’ve opted to go back, I’m going down there two days a week on my own,” says Butch. “I don’t think my recovery would be near what it is today if I hadn’t gone through Parkwest rehab. That’s why I’m going back. I want to keep it up because it’s been so good.” Butch says he feels much better, and breathing is no longer an issue. His advice to anyone who may be experiencing symptoms of a heart problem is don’t wait. Take action and take care of your health. “I’m 65 and I’d like to think that I’ve got several more years on this earth, so I want to be in as good a health as I can be,” Butch says. “I’m married to a very wonderful lady, we’ve been married for 42 years and if I had my choice I’d like to spend another 42 with her.”
The road to recovery begins with cardiac and pulmonary rehab Butch DeBord went to Parkwest Medical Center because he was experiencing shortness of breath, and that’s one of the primary symptoms of valve disease. In such cases, doctors This congenital birth defect is characterized by an aortic valve that will do an echocardiogram.

29, 2012, making Norwood one of three new pilot programs in Knox County (along with Green Magnet and Lonsdale Elementary Schools). Pond Gap Elementary School was the ﬁrst such program, beginning two years ago. Sarah Moore Greene and Christenberry Elementary Schools have been added this year, plus Vine Middle School. Norwood had great success with a new concept called “preteaching.”
From page A-1
“We realized “reteaching” what they had already covered during the day wasn’t working, so we switched to ‘preteaching’ – looking at what was going to be covered by those students the following week and teaching that. When the kids went to school the next week they already had a basis to absorb the information. It really did raise their conﬁdence level.” All students from kindergartners through 5th graders may attend the af-
terschool programs. A hot meal is prepared on site three nights a week, a sack dinner the other two nights. The food is served at 5:15 every evening, 45 minutes before the end of the day. It is provided via a CAC grant at no cost to participants, although parents may give a donation if they wish. Thacker stresses that Norwood is a community school from the minute it opens its doors in the morning until 6 p.m., when its doors close.
“We offer services all day,” she said, citing counseling services offered through a partnership with Helen Ross McNabb. “When you look at a community school, it goes back to that old saying that it takes a village to raise a child. I really believe that. Through partnership, we can provide a better education for our children, and the children in turn will improve our society – it’s a win/win.”
Dismantling the house Moshak was the team’s athletic trainer whose nonstop rehab wizardry kept Candace Parker on the ﬂoor, and Tennessee in the tournament, despite Parker having seriously injured her shoulder during the regional ﬁnals. Longtime fans remembered a similar miracle she performed 11 years earlier when she helped point guard Kellie Jolly come back from an ACL tear to lead a 10-loss Tennessee team to an improbable championship in 1997. Actually, Moshak did it many times, and was considered an integral member of Summitt’s stellar staff. And that April night in 2008, Summitt gave her a Mercedes-Benz. Moshak, who has been busy this summer promoting her book, “Ice ‘N’ Go,” has been widely acclaimed as the best in the business. And now she’s gone, having tendered her resignation two weeks ago, 11 months after ﬁling a discrimination suit against UT. Through her attorney, she issued the following statement: “Due to the overall atmosphere since I raised issues of equality at the University of Tennessee and given the university’s unwillingness to address the issues of discrimination and retaliation, I cannot continue my association with the university’s athletic department.”

lawsuit ﬁled by Moshak, strength and conditioning coach Heather Mason, assistant S&R coach Collin Schlosser and another ﬁled by former Associate Athletic Director for Media Relations Debby Jennings, Anderson recounted something Jennings told her in 2008 when asked to explain why Summitt’s staff was so loyal: “It’s hard to leave a place where the salaries are fantastic, you’re working with the best people, you have the best facility, you have the best and brightest athletes, and you have an athletic department that’s in total support of every one of your efforts.” Back in 2000, Tennessee was one of two D-1 universities in the country to have a separate women’s athletics department (the other was Texas). Boosters on the men’s side urged consolidating the two departments in the name of cutting fat and “cleaning things up.” Boosters on the women’s side pointed out that Joan Cro-
nan’s operation was leaner, more successful, in better academic standing and generally just smarter than the men’s, and was untouched by scandal (this point was reinforced by an impolitic T-shirt: “Tennessee – where men are men and women are champions.”). The signing of the graduation pole became a happy exit ritual in the women’s basketball locker room, a tangible symbol that the winningest coach in the game took as much pride in her 100 percent graduation rate as in her eight national championships. Ditto for the academic banquet when Cronan would ask all the athletes who’d made the honor roll to stand. The basketball team took pride in having the highest composite GPA in the women’s department, and nobody wanted to be left sitting. Kerry Howland, the women’s director of academics, played a key role in that success. But in 2002, after the national scandal that blew up over allegations of cheat-

Hart takes down Jennings Cronan’s retirement plans were already in place before Summitt’s very public health issues emerged. She was still around, but had no decision-making power by the time her successor, Athletic Director Dave Hart, started clashing with Debby Jennings, the most visible member of the house that Pat built. On May 15, 2012, he called Jennings to his ofﬁce, accused her of insubordination and gave her a couple of hours to resign or be ﬁred. Evidence suggests that Jennings’ major offense was
her relentless effort to protect Pat Summitt as she struggled with early-onset Alzheimer’s Disease. Other transgressions included complaints that employees on the women’s side were not receiving equal treatment. Jennings, recipient of too many awards to list, who served as Summitt’s voice for more than 35 years and her Doberman toward the end, was forced out. In April of this year, Heather Mason, who had been steadily promoted and praised during the ﬁrst nine of her 10 years at UT, was terminated at the recommendation of Summitt’s successor, Holly Warlick, and ﬁrst-year soccer coach Brian Pensky, who said she had not performed her job to their satisfaction. They both said they wanted training speciﬁc to their sport, and Mason was replaced by a younger man with a relatively short resumé.
Something else will be different when the Tennessee women take to the court named for Pat Summitt in the coming season. Superfans Raubyn and Donna Braunton have declined to renew their season tickets. The loud and proud sisters from Morristown have been proﬁled by ESPN and are likely to show up for games in anything from orange prison jumpsuits to referees’ uniforms. Last season, they debuted a different costume – a Tshirt emblazoned with Dave Hart’s name under a big red slash and another that says, “I miss Debby Jennings.” Raubyn, who also created an online petition protesting Hart’s actions, says she and Donna have been treated differently since they stepped out of line, and although they’ll continue to support the team, they’ll buy their tickets from scalpers from here on out.

In addition, another 30 percent of them have osteopenia, which is abnormally low bone density that may eventually deteriorate into osteoporosis, if not treated. About half of all women over the age of 50 will suffer a fracture of the hip, wrist, or vertebra. There are no symptoms in the early stages of osteoporosis. Symptoms occurring late in the disease include low back pain, neck pain, bone pain and tenderness, loss of height over time and stooped posture.

Schroer backtracks on parkway Does TDOT Commissioner John Schroer’s right hand know what his left hand is doing? The answer is not clear.
Recently, Schroer has been saying that the extension of the James White Parkway (all of five miles, all in South Knox County at a whopping $21 million a mile) is now a regional issue, not a local issue. So he is quite willing to override the views of Mayors Rogero and Burchett along with several neighborhood groups, Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis and Legacy Parks Foundation while negatively impacting two city parks. However, Knox County has the Knoxville Regional Transportation Planning Organization, or TPO, which can be found at www.knoxtrans.org/. Jeff Welch is the longtime able staff director. Mayor Rogero is vice chair. TPO is a regional group with representatives from Sevier, Loudon, Blount and Knox counties. On Jan. 23, 2013, TPO voted in a public meeting, which included TDOT rep Angela Midgett as a voting member, to remove the James White Parkway from the TPO priority list. Apparently, Schroer does not know this or does not want to know it. He wants to build this extension despite the regional group saying it is not a priority. The minutes of the TPO vote are online at the above website. Farragut Mayor Ralph McGill is chair. Now Schroer says more public hearings are needed. Apparently, the previous public hearings where the public voiced strong opposition did not satisfy him. He does not explain why he is ignoring the unanimous TPO vote. This was the recommendation of the technical committee and the motion was made by Knoxville Council member Brenda Palmer and seconded by Alcoa Mayor Donald Mull. TPOs are part of the TDOT process required by the federal government so regions will voice their priorities with the state
honoring those decisions. Fortunately, Gov. Haslam has indicated he will review this particular project personally, which should provide a more objective and level playing field for a final decision. Expect this issue to continue for some time. ■ Fifty years ago this month, U.S. Sen. Estes Kefauver died, with services in Madisonville attended by Vice President Lyndon Johnson and former Democratic presidential nominee Adlai Stevenson, with whom Kefauver had sought national office in 1956 as Stevenson’s running mate against Dwight Eisenhower and Richard Nixon. ■ As predicted in this column months ago, Knoxvillian Larry Martin, who was Mayor Haslam’s deputy, has been named permanent Finance Commissioner for Tennessee. This is good for the governor, for Knoxville and for Tennessee. ■ Former Indiana Sen. Dick Lugar will speak at the Baker Center tomorrow, Tuesday, Aug. 27, at 1:30. The public is invited to hear the senator speak on international issues on which much of his 30 years in the Senate was centered. He was also mayor of Indianapolis for eight years in the 1970s when unified local government was achieved by popular vote. ■ Former U.S. ambassador to Egypt and Syria, Margaret Scobey (a UT graduate who now lives in the Farragut area) is in demand for comments by the media and civic groups on the tragic developments going on in Egypt, which has traditionally been a strong U.S. ally.

Launch pad to oblivion Larry Smith seeks commission chair
R. Larry Smith’s been accused of a lot of things, but nobody’s ever suggested he lacks ambition. The county commissioner from Halls is continually wading into controversy and testing the current for channels to further his free-flowing aspirations.
Betty Bean One week he appears to be getting ready to run for trustee, the next, it’s register of deeds. A school board rumor bubbles up occasionally, as does the suspicion that he’d like to be county mayor. In recent weeks, he’s devoted his considerable energy to getting elected commission chair.
out of town on a rail and said, “But for the glory, I’d just as soon walk.” “It’s a royal headache,” he said. “Not only from the standpoint of the workload, but you’re also a target of your fellow commissioners, which I thoroughly have not enjoyed. It stings. But that’s not the reason why I’m leaving – I just think a year’s enough. Let somebody else do it.” So, does this mean he doesn’t plan to parlay his current prestige into another elected office? “Not without divine intervention,” Norman said. “After seven years in office, my eighth year can’t get here soon enough. It would take a direct communication from God.” Norman’s predecessor, Mike Hammond, used to be suspected of plotting to parlay his position into a run for mayor, but now he appears to be focused on his pro-
fessional life. Hammond’s predecessor, Tank Strickland, the only Democrat in human memory to serve as chair, likewise hasn’t demonstrated any signs of further political ambition. Former chair Scott “Scoobie” Moore had plenty of ambition, but got a rude comeuppance when he ran for county clerk in 2010 and got 17 percent of the Republican Primary vote. Previous commission chairs David Collins, Leo Cooper and John Mills were all defeated for re-election to their commission seats. So someone not consumed by a hunka hunka burning desire for higher office should carefully consider whether the lure of future glory is worth the pain of serving as commission chair. But we’re talking R. Larry Smith here. And unlike the guy on the rail, odds are he’d just as soon ride.
Clark reads book, goes to movies Casual voters have no idea how close the 2012 Presidential election was. Even I didn’t know, and I’m a political junkie.
Sandra Clark “What Went Wrong,” by Jerome Corsi, breaks down what he calls “the GOP debacle of 2012” and offers advice to Republicans for future elections. While I disagree with many of Corsi’s conclusions, I appreciate his analysis. Follow along: The Electoral College has 538 electors with 270 electoral votes required to win the presidency. Barack Obama started with 55 electoral votes from California and 29 from New York, “for a total of 84 electoral votes without any necessity to campaign in ei-
ther state,” Corsi writes. Both parties labeled states as “blue” or “red,” thus eliminating states where the presidential candidate would have to campaign. While analysts differed, Corsi said the consensus was that Obama entered the 2012 race with 251 electoral votes in states where Romney had no chance of winning; Romney had 191. “For all practical purposes, the presidential election of 2012 was reduced from the start to the seven swing states,” Corsi writes. Those states were: Nevada (6 electoral votes), Colorado (9), Iowa (6), Ohio (18), Virginia (13), North Carolina (15) and Florida (29). Romney lost six of the seven, winning only North Carolina. This book is a great read for those who want to understand how Mitt Romney could spend $1 billion and lose to a marginally popular incumbent. The difference was the cities.
In Ohio, Obama got his majority in one county – Cuyahoga, which includes Cleveland. Take out Cuyahoga and Romney carries Ohio. Obama won Florida by just 74,309 votes (4,237,756 to 4,163,447). Take out Dade County (Miami) and Romney wins. Take out Broward County (Fort Lauderdale) and Romney wins. Romney lost Colorado by roughly 138,000 votes of more than 2.36 million cast. Take out Denver and Romney wins. Romney lost Nevada by 67,800 votes out of nearly 1 million cast. Romney carried every county but two. Take out Reno or Las Vegas and Romney wins. Obama won Nevada by carrying only two counties – a state where unemployment was 11.6 percent. On and on. Obama won Virginia by just 148,000 votes out of nearly 4 million cast. Take out Richmond and Romney wins. Read the book and form
your own conclusions. ■ “Lee Daniels’ The Butler” is a must-see movie, especially for those of a certain age. The young director moves at a fast clip from Truman to Obama, a span of 60 years, hopping through domestic politics like a frog on hot coals. At the core is Forest Whitaker. Boy to man he wears 200 years of ugly racism etched in his face. The movie is a great character study of a man who loved his family (despite fissures) and a family that loved its country (despite strong disagreements about how to manifest that love). The movie elicited both sobs and applause at Regal Riviera on opening week. And Jane Fonda’s portrayal of Nancy Reagan – priceless! Watching the elderly butler slip into an Obama Tshirt at the film’s end adds soul to the numbers of Jerome Corsi’s book and helps answer his question: “What Went Wrong.”
Sheriff’s Office brings crime stats home By Sandra Clark The county’s chief law enforcement officer is not afraid to wear pink in public. And he’s not afraid to blast the Obama Administration and immigration officials by declaring he will stack illegal immigrants “like cordwood” in his jail. So why would anyone think he would be scared to post the county’s crime statistics online? Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones was not scared to do that. In fact, he encouraged
Captain Bobby Hubbs to hop to it. “This has revolutionized our Neighborhood Watch,” Hubbs said last week as Jones demonstrated the computer program at the Halls Republican Club. “This is the future,” Jones said of the program. “If you’re not willing to step into the future, you won’t be arresting people.” He said criminals don’t mind the city limits or the county line. Burglars might break into homes in Nor-
can log in to the system to get updates about crime nearby their home or business. “It will send you a link or message each day. You can check on the dorm where your kid lives,” said Hubbs. When Jones OK’d the plan, only Collierville used Sheriff Jimmy “J.J.” Jones the system in all of Tenneswood one day, Powell the see. Now the “RaidsOnLine” next and Anderson County is regional, covering Knoxthe next. When the officers ville, Oak Ridge, UT and communicate crime stats Loudon.

Given the widely rumored suspicions about his lust for higher office, it’s hard to see this move as anything but a means to some unspecific end. But does it really work that way? A look at recent history suggests it’s more like a launch pad to oblivion. Common wisdom is that incumbent chair Tony Norman, who, like Smith, will be term limited out of office in 2014, could keep the job another year if he wanted it. This is not a notion he wishes to encourage. He doesn’t see the position as a springboard, launchpad or steppingstone – for Norman, it’s more of a cow pie from which he’s attempting to extricate himself before he ruins his good shoes. When talking about the past year, Norman sounds like the guy who was asked how it felt after being tarred and feathered and ridden

A judge’s trial On the morning of June 11, 1992, in the wee hours before dawn, Carolyn Susano awoke in time to see her husband dive through the screen of a window in their second floor bedroom. Charles Susano, a lifelong sleepwalker, woke up on
the ground, Carolyn, their youngest son and a neighbor surrounding him. He didn’t know how he got there. And he couldn’t get up. One of Knoxville’s most prominent lawyers, Susano spent the next month at St. Mary’s Medical Center before being transferred to Atlanta, where he underwent treatment and therapy at the Shepherd Spinal Center for another 3 1/2 months. At 56, he was now paralyzed from the chest down and needed to learn how to cope with life in a wheelchair. And he has done remarkably well. Susano, a native Knoxvillian, a product of Knoxville Catholic High School, a magna cum laude graduate of the University of Notre Dame, an Army veteran and an Order of the Coif /Law Review graduate of the University of Tennessee law school, is now Presiding Judge of the Tennessee Court of Appeals. He earned an undergraduate degree in accounting and remembers his time in South Bend as the best four years of his life. He also remembers the not-so-goodtime in New York City when he took his first job with a big accounting firm and quickly decided that the big city wasn’t for him. “I was the loneliest human being in the world,” he said. So he came up with a somewhat unorthodox solution. “I was 1A in the draft, and people in the accounting firm encouraged me to get into the reserves so I could stay in New York. But that was not what I wanted to do, so I let myself be drafted as a graceful way of getting out of New York. “It was worth giving my country two years in order to escape from the big city. I told my Dad – who was big on sticking with something once you had started – ‘my country has called me.’” Drafted in 1958, he served 18 months with the U.S. Army in West Germany. When he was honorably discharged in 1960, he came back to Knoxville and gave accounting another shot. But the result was the same. “I went to work with Ernst & Ernst locally, and again decided I didn’t like accounting. So, when you don’t know what you want
to do with your life and you don’t like your job, there’s always further education.” He entered law school at the University of Tennessee, and again met with great academic success. He got his degree in 1963 and was admitted to the bar in March 1964. He clerked for Tennessee Supreme Court Chief Justice Hamilton Burnett, worked as a Knox County assistant attorney general and served as consultant to Lear Sigler, a contractor to the U.S. Office of Economic Opportunity during President Lyndon Johnson’s War on Poverty. In June 1964, he settled into practicing law with Bernie Bernstein, who would become his mentor in the law and his friend for life, and married Carolyn S. King a few months later. Susano is fiercely proud of his late parents, first generation Italian-Americans Charles D. Susano Sr. and Eloise Dondero Susano. The senior Susano brought his wife and son, Michael, to Knoxville in 1934 (then Judge came along in 1936 followed by Tommy in 1942), and worked as a chemist at TVA until, in early 1944, he went to work at the lab in Oak Ridge. Last year, Susano wrote an op-ed column in response to critics who believe the U.S. should not have used atomic bombs to end the war with Japan. “My father, for whom I am named, was a chemist at Y-12 during the war. He was intimately involved in the chemistry of enriching ura-
nium into weapons-grade material. Unlike those who express ‘shame’ in Y-12’s involvement in the bomb, I celebrate Dad’s involvement in an effort that saved not only American lives but also the lives of many Japanese.” He credits his mother for instilling in him the pragmatic, self pity-free philosophy that allowed him to return to his law practice six months after his accident –
just before his health insurance coverage would have run out. “She used to say, ‘Charlie, if you get a lemon, make some lemonade.’ She was also fond of saying, ‘Charlie, you can get used to anything. You can get used to hanging if you do it long enough.’” And he credits Shepherd Center with saving his life. “They teach you how to

Susano, is available at Amazon.com. cope, emotionally as well as physically. I learned that if I could do 100 things before the accident, after the accident I could still do 90 of them. I left there with a good attitude, and since then the good Lord has certainly blessed me. God didn’t push me out that window, but he’s sure taken good care of me since then. “The people you really feel sorry for are the young people. I’ll always remember the 16-year-old girl at Shepherd’s, who was a quadriplegic, crying, saying ‘If only I could use my hands.’ As one who could still use his hands, I felt so sorry for her.” The perfect job came via Gov. Ned Ray McWherter, who appointed Susano to the Tennessee Court of Appeals in March 1994. He stood for election in August of that year, and since then has been twice re-elected to 8-year terms on retention votes (which means that Tennesseans were given the opportunity to say whether he should remain on the bench). In 2003, the American Board of Trial Advocates, Tennessee Chapter, named him Appellate Judge of the Year. In 2012, his colleagues elected him presiding judge. He plans to run again in 2014. Sitting in his spacious, light-filled office in the historic U.S. Post Office and Courthouse, Susano is surrounded by family photo-
graphs (he and Carolyn have three children – Stephen, Maria and Charles III), mementos of his beloved alma mater and memorabilia from a legal career that spans almost 50 years. In front of his desk are copies of a slim volume called “Remembering United States District Judge Robert L. Taylor,” a book of remembrances gleaned from 112 colleagues who answered Susano’s call for anecdotes about the legendary judge who served 35 years on the federal bench and was twice selected by Chief Justice Warren Burger to preside over sensitive trials of high-placed public officials. Susano edited and compiled the stories and shepherded the publication of this important addition to local legal history. A picture of the Hoss Cartwright-esque Gov. Ned Ray McWherter smiling down at Susano shortly before his appointment to the bench hangs on the wall opposite his desk. He says it’s one of his prized possessions – but nothing makes him smile as much as the photographs of his two grandchildren, Sophie, 11, and Jacob, 9, that sit on his desk. He says he plans to take Sophie to Notre Dame this fall to begin her indoctrination. And he smiles. “This job is perfect for me. When I think about the nice things that have happened to me since my accident, I have no regrets.”

Hole in the heart of Halls Sam Hardman has left a gaping hole in the heart of Halls, one that a hundred other people couldn’t fill if they tried. He was that special.
Jake Mabe MY TWO CENTS Mr. Hardman died Aug. 16 at age 95. But he wouldn’t want us to cry or be sad for too long. Oh, no. He loved to make people smile, you see. His ubiquitous grin was infectious. It would take the talent of Shakespeare to tell Sam’s tale. He had one of the great final acts of any human being you have ever known. At age 80, when most people are slowing down, already retired for years, Sam was just getting started. After his beloved wife of 49 years, Jessie Mae, died, Sam decided that sittin’ and thinkin’ wasn’t any way to live. He
never stopped again until his God called him home. Jessie Mae, by the way, was the first woman Sam spoke to when he arrived in Knoxville after the war to continue working for a cigar company. He was so wellrespected at the company in his native Georgia that they found an opening for him in Knoxville when he returned home from World War II. I could fill up the rest of the newspaper listing Sam’s accomplishments. So let me just mention a few near and dear to his heart. Every morning, seven days a week, Sam would arise early and buy expiring bread and other items at a local supermarket for the Halls Welfare Food Pantry. A proud Army veteran, Sam became the spokesperson for HonorAir Knoxville. He was an active member of the Woodmen of the World and of American Legion Post #2 and Post #126. He was named Halls Man of the Year in 2008. And that’s just the tip of the iceberg. Sam was so busy even members of his family had to make appoint-

A person of deep faith, Sam was the embodiment of the Golden Rule. “Helping others is why we were put here on this earth,” he said. Asked why he kept so busy, Sam said he had but one goal: Sam Hardman “I want to make my life worth something to somements to see him.

Honoring Trooper Mike Slagle Laura Slagle and Knox County mayor Tim Burchett unveil the sign that renames the Longmire Road Bridge over Flat Creek in memory of her husband, Trooper Mike Slagle. Trooper Slagle died of natural causes after his patrol cruiser slid off of Longmire Road during January’s ice storm. Also at the ceremony were Slagle’s children, daughter Whitney Gosnell (holding Rylen Turner), daughter Kacye Baker, county commissioner R. Larry Smith (hidden from view), county commissioner Dave Wright and Slagle’s son Chad. Trooper Slagle served more than 25 years with the Tennessee Highway Patrol and will be remembered as “an outstanding state trooper who served with pride and integrity.” State troopers and Knox County law enforcement personnel joined in the ceremony to remember Slagle’s dedication and to support the family. “God bless the men and women that protect us every day,” said Burchett.

Classic Vols get their own posters
In an almost perfect tie-in to the new football season, Food City will offer almost free posters celebrating the past.
The series is called Classic Vols and features quarterback Dewey Warren, running back Johnnie Jones, receiver Larry Seivers and safety Tim Priest. The artwork is spectacular. Primary colors are orange and white. Food City will award posters, one at a time, beginning with Jones on and after Sept. 1, to customers who purchase one of these or two of those from its core group of products. As you may have heard before, see the stores for details.
The project will be officially introduced with a press event on Friday at the Deane Hill (Morrell Road) Food City at 2:30, prior to the first Big Orange pep rally. The posters have potential beyond collectibles. They will create the almost perfect opportunity for adults to instruct little people about interesting personalities and the wonderful things the Volunteers accomplished back before the crash. Warren was the most colorful quarterback in Tennessee history. His nickname, Swamp Rat, puts him at the top of that class. Dewey, new on the job, reported to his first huddle without his hard hat. Dewey was the focal point of the hit hymn, “Hum that tater.” Dewey, slow as he was, made the historic one-yard run that defeated UCLA in the “Rosebonnet” bowl. The statute of limitations allows me to tell you this: Dewey was CEO of the play-

dropped: “As long as you please to do right.” That is sort of how the world began, isn’t it? Adam and Eve in a beautiful garden, cared for, fed, visited by the Creator who walked with them and fellowCross shipped with them in the Currents garden in the cool of the Lynn evening. They were given Hutton free rein – no rules – except for one caveat: Don’t eat of the fruit of the tree of the knowledge of good and evil. Which they promptly did, my classroom.” We students looked at of course. Sometimes I wonder why each other, wide-eyed, absolutely dumbstruck by the Lord God did not shut such a statement.

bearance and forgiveness. Instead of calling the whole thing off, God gave Adam and Eve clothes and sent them out into the wide world to make their own living. Centuries later, Isaiah warned the people of his generation of the wrath to come, describing the impending destruction as so utterly complete that there would not be fragments of pottery large enough to use to pull an ember from the fire or to dip water out of a cistern. But even with the disaster that was to befall Jerusalem, Isaiah offered hope: the Lord ultimately would be gracious. There would be adversity and affliction, yes, but God would be present as Teacher, to guide, to
instruct, to encourage. It was the responsibility of the people to listen to the Teacher, to pay attention, to follow the teaching, to heed the guidance, to accept the encouragement. “Though the Lord may give you the bread of adversity and the water of affliction, yet your Teacher will not hide himself any more, but your eyes shall see your Teacher. And when you turn to the right or when you turn to the left, your ears shall hear a word behind you, saying, ‘This is the way; walk in it.’” (Isaiah 30: 2021 NRSV) That teaching – those words – are for us as well. Thanks be to God for that promise, and for all teachers everywhere.
er ticket-scalping business. He purchased teammates’ complimentary tickets at wholesale prices and sold retail to the admiring public. Fans bragged about buying from Warren.
This is the way Therefore thus says the Holy One of Israel: Because you put your trust in oppression and deceit, and rely on them; therefore this iniquity shall become for you like a break in a high wall, bulging out, and about to collapse, whose crash comes suddenly, in an instant; its breaking is like that of a potter’s vessel that is smashed so ruthlessly that among its fragments not a sherd is found for taking fire from the hearth, or dipping water out of the cistern. (Isaiah 30: 12-14 NRSV) School is back in session, at least in Knox County. Students and teachers alike are adjusting once again to the routine, learning names, making new friends, grumbling about the alarm clock.
I remember those days, as a student and as a teacher. And I remember, oh, so well, my 3rd-grade teacher who started the very first day of school by saying this: “You may do as you please in
esty is memorable: “I didn’t make any great plays. They just kept throwing me the football.” The idea for the Classic Vols series came from a what-if conversation between outstanding artist Danny Wilson and Jay Sokolow, senior vice president of the Tombras advertising group. Both have interests in Tennessee football. Wilson has a big-time artistic and technical touch. Maybe you have seen his caricatures of country music stars for the GAC Network. Bottom line: The Classic posters, each 12 by 18 inches, are almost perfect. I wish the set took up more wall space and I wish there were posters of so many other classic Volunteers, Steve Kiner, Jack Reynolds, Condredge Holloway, Bob Johnson … well, you get the idea. Maybe next year.
also a pretty good quarterback. Johnnie Jones’ magic moment was in 1983, that winning run against Alabama, 66 yards, long enough to transform Birmingham’s boisterous Legion Field into what sounded like a library. The multitude was stunned. The little pocket of orange fans grew disrespectfully loud. Johnnie was Tennessee’s first and second 1,000-yard rusher and the only tailback to have three 200-yard games. Wideout Larry Seivers will forever be remembered as the “good hands” Volunteer. It is no exaggeration to say if he could touch it, he would catch it. Catch of a lifetime beat Clemson, 1974. Back in 1968-70, safety Tim Priest set the school record for career interceptions (18). That the record still stands is amazing. As a senior and captain, Priest picked off three against Alabama.

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers
about Common Core at Pleasant Ridge By Betsy Pickle There’s nothing common about the enthusiasm over the Common Core initiative at Pleasant Ridge Elementary School. It started at the top, with principal Jessica Birdsong’s gut reaction to the state’s new educational mandate. “‘What an opportunity,’ I think was my initial thought,” says Birdsong. “What an opportunity for our community, our students and our teachers just to really push ourselves to our potential.” The previous approach wasn’t so much flawed as incomplete, she says. “We’re still teaching our kids the same things, we’re just teaching them deeper,” says Birdsong, whose K-2 classes implemented Common Core two years ago. Birdsong’s excitement has been matched by the Pleasant Ridge faculty so thoroughly that most have had Common Core training, and three of them – 5th grade teacher Beki Proffitt, 1st grade teacher Valerie Gresser and kindergarten teacher Kelli Smith – applied for and were chosen by the state to take the training to become Common Core coaches. It “is really extraordinary for one school to have that many,” says Birdsong. “Especially a school with only 27 teachers,” adds Smith. While the coaches are sharing their knowledge with teachers from throughout the district and the state, “that obviously helped us along at Pleasant Ridge to have these experts ahead of time help us all walk through it,” says Birdsong. Becoming Common Core coaches required a big time commitment from the teachers, both during the school year and over the summer. Proffitt, who is a math coach, attended several training sessions in Nashville, and Smith, who’s an ELA (English Language Arts) coach, did her training in Chattanooga. (Gresser was unavailable for the interview.) This summer, they trained teachers from all over the state Department of Education’s East Region using school facilities in Knox County. Smith spent four days a week for three weeks, while Proffitt did back-to-back two-day sessions over two weeks because the state had already done some training when it implemented Common Core math the year before. The total number of teachers trained throughout the state this summer was close to 30,000, Proffitt and Smith said. When they weren’t leading training, they were learning themselves.
Pleasant Ridge Elementary 5th grade teacher Beki Proffitt works with several students during a lesson. Proffitt is also a Common Core coach at the school. Photo Betsy Pickle “We went to extra training beyond that for other content areas because I don’t just teach math, and she doesn’t teach just ELA, we teach everything, so we wanted to know how to do everything,” says Proffitt. They will continue to coach throughout the year. “Knoxville has training sessions as well to keep us continually educated,” says Proffitt. “We’ve been part of facilitating different types of sessions and been on committees to get preparations ready.” “And all three of them are experts in our building, and all of our teachers go to them for advice, suggestions and feedback,” says Birdsong. Proffitt says she admires the perseverance that the Common Core approach demands of students, and she enjoys seeing them when that light bulb comes on. “It’s the understanding,” she says. “It’s not just that they can do it; they know why they’re doing it and what they’re doing.” She notes that one challenge is that the students are doing it together. “Our kids are growing up in a society that is very independent and
text-based and computer-based, and they’re usually interacting with a machine and not another person,” she says. “So for a lot of our kids, we’re truly teaching them how to communicate with other people on a regular basis and have them disagree helpfully, and I think that’s uncomfortable for some kids.” Smith says Common Core can create a cooperative setting. “Part of Common Core is having a respectful culture where the kids interact and learn with each other,” she says. “It’s no longer where they sit by themselves and see if they know it, but they actually communicate with each other about how they came up with their answer. “You’ll hear them saying things such as, ‘Well, I understand where you’re coming from, but I disagree because …’ or, ‘I respectfully challenge you on this problem because I came up with this answer.’ They’re communicating with each other in a way that makes them responsible for their learning. “They sort of learn as a unit now. That’s one of the things that I feel like we all really had to get used to. … When I was learning, you just sat at your desk, and you did your worksheet by yourself. And now it’s great to have a noisy classroom when your
Knox County Council PTA
students are talking back and forth, having informational conversations with each other. “That’s a part of this Common Core that I think is really going to revolutionize learning for kids because they have to be able to go back and forth between their work and their learning. It’s not just, ‘I solved the problem; now I’m done.’ So I think that they do work more together. It’s a more fun place to be now.” Smith has found that Common Core is particularly challenging for kindergarten students. “The truth is that teaching things more deeply is harder for them, but that’s not a bad thing,” she says. “They learn more when they have just a little bit of struggle time, and they learn it from themselves. They figure it out and they own information now.” Making computers available so that students can demonstrate their knowledge is a concern for Birdsong. “Technology’s a big push for us. We are trying to concentrate our resources to make sure that we can provide that technology for our students. We are always wanting more and needing more. It’s never enough, and it’s never new enough. “It’s expensive to make sure our students are prepared adequately, and it’s hard to keep up.”

These boots are made for waggin’ By Carol Zinavage It was a great night for Suzani Styles and YoungWilliams Animal Center when the Dog Days of August fashion show was held recently on Market Square. The sultry heat underscored the name of the event, but many folks came out to see models in fabulous Suzani Styles boots and shoes, accompanied by adopted and adoptable dogs. Send story suggestions to news@ ShopperNewsNow.com
The mastermind behind the event was April Montgomery, who owns Suzani Styles in Bearden. She had done a similar show in Nashville with animal rescue group Agave, and says it was “a great event. I wanted to do something like that here.” Suzani Styles has recently begun offering dog collars after a client requested some to go with her six pairs of Suzani boots. The boots are made in Istanbul, Turkey, by three different designers, all Turkish. Montgomery often visits the Middle East to oversee fabric selection and design. Photos by Carol
Enjoying the event are downtown resident Pepper Bobo, and Lilly and Allee Faulkner of Sevierville. Dog Tessa shows that she likes to pose, too! Jennifer Hughes and Ribeye, a therapy dog, wow the crowd.
Little Oona Morris, 3, kicks up her booted heels with Kelli Ryman and Mr. Martini. Oona’s mom Karly said the little girl “thought it was going to be a pretend fashion show, but she loved getting her hair and makeup done. She’s the biggest girly girl!”
Jason Morris of West Knoxville brought Zoe out to see the show. Zoe was more concerned with a dog she spotted to her right. Heather Pace is proud to partner with handsome Ledger, who was rescued by the side of the road in Ohio.

Graning Paint relocates, gains space By Sandra Clark Graning Paint has moved to the former Lighting Gallery on Magnolia Avenue. Owner Kenny Adams says the store gained about 5,000 square feet of showroom and warehouse space. The business was founded in 1955 when Kenny’s dad, the late Paul Adams, bought a company out of bankruptcy. Kenny Adams started working at Graning Paint Kenny Adams stands outside while in high school, learnthe new Graning Paint store ing the business from his on Magnolia Avenue. dad and handling chores
like sweeping up. “Downtown is my customer base,” he says, so when road crews started talking about improvements to Broadway near the interstate, Kenny looked close by. He got lucky with his new digs. Adams has seen the business change over 58 years, as Graning went from 17 stores to one. He’s also seen his suppliers consolidate or close. So today, Graning carries 4,000 regular colors and, thanks to new technology, can match anyone’s competi-
tive color. Major brands are Glidden, Devoe, Flood stains, Sikkens, Ralph Lauren and Pratt & Lambert. And Graning carries them all. Kenny has a skilled staff including his son, Kevin. My dad always said, “Stay with what you know,” said Kenny. “That was the whole idea behind getting a better building – for my family.” Fountain City through and through, other family members are Kenny’s mom, Lagonda Adams, and his sister and brother-in-law, Diane and John Ramondo (who operate Big Oak Shoes Jordan Mullins and his dad, Tollie Mullins, at Mullins Country Market Photo by Ruth White in Black Oak Plaza).

NEWS FROM PREMIER SURGICAL News from Rural/Metro

Rural/Metro stresses safety By Rob Webb With the new school year u n d e r w a y, it’s an appropriate time to remind drivers and parents of the increased accident risk as stuWebb dents walk, bicycle and ride school buses to and from school. The National Highway Trafﬁc Safety Administration estimates 600,000 students ride school buses in Tennessee each class day, and hundreds of thousands more walk or ride bicycles. State and national statistics show a positive trend down in the number of children involved in accidents in and near school zones. State ﬁgures indicate a seven percent decrease in school zone accidents from 2008 to 2012. Added good news is that school bus-related wrecks dropped by almost 74 percent during the same period. However, everyone would agree that even one child injured or killed on
their way to school is too many. For Rural/Metro’s paramedics and emergency medical technicians, calls to respond to an accident involving children are among the most dreaded. Tennessee Highway Patrol troopers issued 5,247 citations to drivers related to school trafﬁc last school year, almost 1,400 more citations than the year before. That ﬁgure does not include tickets written by city and county ofﬁcers. Both Sheriff Jimmy “JJ” Jones and KPD Chief David Rausch have pledged an increased police presence the ﬁrst few weeks of school. While ofﬁcers certainly focus on enforcing speed limits in school zones, the enforcement effort extends to include drivers taking children to school and those around school buses. A little extra vigilance and caution can prevent a tragedy. Slow down in school zones, and be extra watchful around school buses and at drop off points and other spots where children gather. For parents, there are great tips about pedestrian and bicycle safety online at www.walktoschool.org.
