Inasmuch United this weekend

at Powell Playhouse

Thirty-four area churches will come together Saturday, April 13, for Inasmuch United Knoxville. Volunteers have less than one week to complete preparations for the massive 2013 mission. Participating churches are hard at work and those involved say they’ll be ready.

By Jake Mabe “Puss in Boots,” this week’s production by the Powell Playhouse at the Jubilee Banquet Facility, will feature a special treat. Nine members of the Halls High School Masquerade Players will be the featured performers. Drama teacher Kim Hurst says the idea sprang from Powell Playhouse founder Nita Buell Black, a retired drama teacher who spent most of her career at Powell High. “This is something she wanted to do from the beginning, involve schools in the Powell Playhouse, because that’s where her heart is,” Hurst said. Masquerade Players cast members are: Delaney Keith, Amy Barraza, Aidan Knowles, Sierra Knighten, Chandler Lakin, Kristen Rouse, Evan Hughes, Jordan Johnson and Tori Morsch.

Area schools get technology grant Corryton, Halls and Sterchi elementary schools, along with Holston Middle School, were among 11 schools selected to participate in Knox County Schools’ technology grant challenge. A total of 28 schools applied to have 1:1 technology (one iPad or tablet for each student and teacher). Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre announced the winners Friday, saying instructional technology in selected schools will give everyone a chance to see the initiative work “right in their own neighborhood.” The program will launch this fall. Others chosen are Bearden and South-Doyle high schools; Vine and West Valley middle schools; and Bonny Kate, Mooreland Heights and Norwood elementary schools.

Halls Alumni Dinner is April 27 The annual Halls Alumni Dinner is 6 p.m. Saturday, April 27, at Halls High School. The classes of 1953 and 1963 will be honored and this year’s inductees into the Alumni Hall of Fame and Alumni Association officers and board members will be announced. Bring a covered dish. Walk of Fame bricks will also be on sale.

The club is recruiting new members. Thornton and Lambert would love to see every student driver in the school sign up. Recruitment days are Tuesdays and Thursdays during lunch through the end of April. Sage Kohler’s job as a State Farm agent means she must advocate safe driving. But that isn’t the main reason she’s a believer in student commitment. “I am passionate about promoting Arrive Alive and Drivers Awareness Week because of the difference students say these programs make in their lives,” she said. “I have seen firsthand an improvement in driving and ability to focus from the teens who take part. Kohler says students tell her that the reality of an accident and how serious it can be is brought to life when they see the mock wreck. To page A-3

The project has been a labor of love for Hurst’s students, who have been rehearsing at 7 a.m. twice a week since February. “They have been doing this outside of school because I had them first semester. And we had to meet at 7 a.m. because they all have jobs. They have been so dedicated, dragging in here (that early) like teenagers do, but they come every Tuesday and Thursday.” Hurst says the students are particularly excited about wearing professional costumes because in most school productions, “I’m a Goodwill girl.” One scene requires a fencing match, for which the students were not trained. “Courtney Woolard, who is on the Powell Playhouse board of directors, works in theater downtown. She got wooden swords and showed them how to do some fencing and did the choreography.” Hurst says several Masquerade Players along with the Halls High Madrigals just returned from seeing Broadway plays in New York. “So it was so wonderful for them to see professional shows,

other community members can enroll in GED or ESL classes, and some schools even offer health clinics, laundry facilities or help with taxes. Community schools, in essence, become community centers. Duncan served as Chief Executive Officer of Chicago Public Schools, and witnessed the profound impact of converting 150 Chicago schools to community schools. While academic enrichment for students was at the heart of the effort,

which is what we’ll have at the Powell Playhouse. We are so excited to get out into the public.

parents flocked to the schools to take advantage of learning opportunities. “I promise you, where families are learning together, and schools truly become the heart of the neighborhood, those children will be very, very successful,” Duncan said. Pond Gap Elementary School’s University-Assisted Community School program is currently in its third year. It has served as a pilot program for the county. Randy Boyd, founder of Radio Systems Corp. and special advisor for higher education to Gov. Bill Haslam, provided the bulk of funding for the Pond Gap program. After Duncan spoke, Boyd participated in a panel discussion where he reflected on increased parental involvement at Pond Gap. Among other things, the school now has a PTA. After some quick math, he estimated how much it would cost each Knox County resident to fund 15-20 more community schools – $14. The price is low because the concept relies heavily on nonprofits and volunteers.

It’s an inexpensive solution to the conundrum of how to get parents physically into the school building. As Duncan said, parents of the most challenged students often failed academically themselves, and don’t have warm, fuzzy feelings about schools. It’s also a compassionate response to struggling families. Dr. Bob Kronick of UT’s College of Education, Health and Human Sciences has been working on the community school concept for 14 years. When asked to comment during the panel discussion, he said that students can’t learn if their basic needs – food, clothing and shelter – aren’t met. Community schools provide support to students and families that is lacking in these areas. Last year, Knox County Commission provided an additional $500,000 to expand the community school program into Lonsdale, Green and Norwood elementary schools. Check back next week to learn more about these programs.

government Dunns plan Knox visit Attending the dedication of the Ann Baker Furrow Boulevard at Sorority Village on the UT campus (next to Neyland Drive) this coming Saturday, April 13, at 1 p.m. will be the person who appointed Furrow to the UT Board of Trustees. That is former Gov. Winfield Dunn, 85, and his wife, Betty Dunn, who are coming from Nashville where they now live. Chancellor Jimmy Cheek will preside at a UT-sponsored, invitation-only luncheon preceding the event. Furrow was the first woman to serve on the UT board. The public is invited and sorority houses will be open for viewing after the dedication. ■Anthony Hancock, who unsuccessfully opposed state Rep. Steve Hall, has picked up a petition to oppose City Council member Duane Grieve (West Knoxville). What had been a sleepy election may become more interesting, but Hancock will have to wage a more active campaign this year than he did against Hall to be a serious contender. Picking up a petition does not mean he will actually qualify, but it does mean he is thinking about it. Several city precincts were in the House district he contested last fall. His loss to Hall was not close. ■ Duane Grieve is popular, well-liked and an independent voice on the council. He opposed Mayor Rogero’s pension reform plan as not going far enough to resolve fiscal issues. He is a strong advocate for greenways and additional trees. Rogero backed Democratic nominee Hancock over Hall with a financial donation last year. She is not expected to support Hancock over Grieve this time around and is appearing at an April 13 neighborhood meeting for Grieve. (This writer was a donor to Grieve in his 2009 campaign and he was a donor to all my mayoral campaigns.) ■ Alice Sellew, 91, longtime Farragut resident, recently died. She was a dedicated Republican who did the floral arrangements at countless Lincoln Day dinners and other GOP events for more than 20 years. ■ State Rep. Gloria Johnson has recommended Knoxville attorney Tammy Kaousias as predicted by this writer a few weeks ago to replace another attorney, Dennis Francis, on the Knox County Election Commission.

Victor Ashe

The other Democrat is Cassandra McGee Stuart, recommended by Rep. Joe Armstrong. This will mark the first time in Knox history that two women have served at the same time on the Election Commission. Kaousias, who is an avid political supporter of Johnson, is the first Greek American to serve on the Commission. Johnson criticized the Commission in her campaign for closing Belle Morris school as a voting precinct and holding its meetings at 8 a.m. It will be interesting to see if Kaousias and Stuart raise these issues during their 2-year term, although the GOP majority will likely vote down any requested change. Each commissioner is paid $4,017 a year and Chris Heagerty receives $998 a year more since he is the chair, for a total of $5,015. However, the most significant benefit these five persons receive is free participation in the county health insurance plan which is valued at $10,000 a year – double their salary. In effect the salary is $14,000 a year with the chair making $15,000. It is unclear why this part-time job merits tax paid health insurance. In 2012 the Commission met nine times and this year they have met once in March and plan an April meeting to swear in the members and rehire Cliff Rodgers as administrator. ■Barbara Monty, 81, is retiring from the CACmanaged Mobile Meals program which delivers, primarily through volunteers, countless meals to the needy. She and her husband, Ken Monty, moved here 45 years ago and went to work for CAC.

Driving Mr. Ramsey The tasty roast beef dinner the Union County Republicans served up in the high school for Lincoln Day didn’t lure the driver out of the big, black SUV that sat idling in the parking lot. Presumably, he was maintaining a controlled climate while awaiting the return of the Senate Speaker/Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey and his ride-along guest, state Sen. Frank Niceley, whom Ramsey had picked up in Strawberry Plains, making for a 260-mile round trip from Ramsey’s home in Bluff City (in Sullivan County) to Maynardville. The Tennessee Department of Safety and Homeland Security provides security to both the Senate and the House speakers. Ramsey’s driver, Bill Taliaferro, is paid $38.71 per hour, while House Speaker


Beth Harwell’s driver makes $26.65 an hour. Both drivers are eligible for overtime and retirement benefits. Both speakers have 2011 Suburbans, but Nashville resident Harwell’s expenses are considerably less than Ramsey’s – $3,392 in gas and maintenance so far this year to Harwell’s $1,249 – because of his long commute. “The Lieutenant Governor and Speaker retain their responsibilities and title throughout the year and each is assigned security (state trooper) for protective services,� said Department of Safety spokesperson Kevin Crawford. The troop-

Understanding the Nashville GOP The headliner at last week’s Lincoln Day Dinner in Union County was U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann, but Lt. Gov. Ron Ramsey stole the show. Ramsey exuded power and confidence, and he was home from Nashville with a message to tell.

“Frank and I are kindred spirits,� he said of state Sen. Frank Niceley. “Every time I sit by Frank I learn something. For instance, you either get it or you don’t get it. And if you have to ask, well, you don’t get it.� Ramsey talked about the Republican Party’s rise to power. From the state’s founding in 1796, Tennessee’s top three posts were not

held by Republicans until 2012 when Gov. Bill Haslam joined Ramsey and House Speaker Beth Harwell. For most of those 216 years, the Democratic Party controlled all three positions. In that context, it’s easy to see why the GOP is out to mess with the status quo. “You don’t want to elect Republicans and have them start acting like Democrats,� Ramsey said. Niceley, for instance, wants citizens to vote for the school superintendent but not for nominees for U.S. Senate. Ramsey said the Republicans have “cut the food tax (although he thinks far enough since it’s ‘a tax everyone pays’), cut the death tax and passed two balanced budgets, each less than the year before.� Republicans have eliminated collective bargaining in education, made tenure something to be “earned, not automatic� and are pushing for school choice. Ramsey said today

Clark “400,000 law-abiding citizens can carry and keep a firearm in a locked car.� He called for a reduction of unemployment benefits saying, “Unemployment has become a lifestyle.� After a couple of jabs at Obamacare, it was easy to see why Haslam opted not to

fight Ramsey on expanding Medicaid. Shut out of power for 200 years and believing things are headed in the wrong direction, Republicans in Nashville are not just braking the bus. They’re standing on the brakes and singing “Dixie.�

ers are paid per diem rates for lodging and meals when overnighting away from home. Taliaferro figured prominently in a 2007 Memphis Flyer story by Jackson Baker about the changes that accompanied the overthrow of longtime Democratic Speaker John Wilder. “The old order was changing, all right – from Democratic to Republican and from west to east. The phenomenon had been underscored earlier in the week, on the night after Ramsey’s election, when Bill Taliaferro, the state trooper who had been Wilder’s plainclothes driver for well over a decade, sat down with Ramsey to discuss the matter of continuing in that role. “As Speaker (Jimmy) Naifeh would note in reporting on the matter to a couple

of his House colleagues, that probably meant that Taliaferro would have to shift his own residence eastward to accommodate the new Speaker’s needs.� Sure enough, an Internet search shows William E. Taliaferro with a Blountville address. The most common justification for such practices involves pointing out that it’s nothing new. But Republicans used to rail against Democrats’ profligate spending when they were running the show in Nashville, so more than a touch of irony sets in at the sight of members of the tough-talking, budget-slashing new majority happily settled into the practices that they once deplored. And the sight of state employees driving state vehicles to tote politicians like Mr. Speaker around the state to purely partisan events is almost as disconcerting as realizing that they don’t give a damn what we think.

Emory Place and Central Market HISTORY AND MYSTERIES | Dr. Jim Tumblin My fond memories of attending Sunday school at First Christian Church on the periphery of Emory Place include that interval between Sunday school and the church service, when William G. Fox (1861-1936) reached in his suit coat pocket, retrieved a stick of Walla Walla chewing gum and delivered a tasty treat to each of the children lined up before him. Fox was a senior elder of the church and treasurer of the building campaign. But through the week he was treasurer of the Walla Walla Chewing Gum Company. The company was the anchor business in the Central Market, later to be called Emory Place. According to the American Journal of Commerce (1903), W.D. Biddle established the firm on March 2, 1897, in small quarters with only five employees. Surely even William Wrigley, Chicago’s chewing gum king, would have been proud of the growth of the company, which at its height had 4050 employees producing 1,200 sticks of chewing gum each minute, some two tons each day. Until 1915, Walla Walla occupied Nos. 8 and 10 Central Market, with each 25x100-foot building consisting of four floors, equipped with steam power and up-to-date machinery. Walla Walla became the largest company of its kind in the South, and its product was marketed in 42 states by eight traveling salespeople. The company moved to 511-14 State St. and in 1950, prominent former UT athlete and business owner Herman D. “Breezy” Wynn bought the company, planning to expand it to 60 employees. Central Market first appears in the 1889 city directory, when there were 33 stalls housed in a frame structure on a wide spur of Fourth Avenue, with the City Scales on the west end and Fire Engine House No. 1 in a brick building on the east end. Old Gray Cemetery, founded in 1850, was just across Broadway from the market on the southwest corner of Holston Street (now Tyson). The downtown terminal for the Fountain Head Railway Company (“The Dummy Line”) was located on the northwest corner of that street. Early tenants in the Central Market included Thomas Owens’ fish market, Jacob Croissant’s meat market and Austin Plummer’s produce company. Others like the Knox Candy Company would come and go, with Ebenezer Kelley and Strother Lynn, Grocers, lasting for several years. The original Market House, located a mile away on Market Square, had been built in 1854 and expanded in 1897. Perhaps that expansion was the impetus for Central Market’s transition about the turn of the last century from small markets to larger factory-like businesses and more substantial brick buildings. When “Market” no longer described its mission, the powers that be sought another name. The New Market Train Wreck of Sept. 24, 1904, was on everyone’s mind. Two Southern Railway passenger trains traveling at high speeds had collided head-on in the worst transportation disaster in area history. It was first announced that there were 56 killed and 106 injured but the toll grew as some of the

injured died and as more facts emerged. Perhaps the best-known casualty was 74-year old the Rev. Isaac Emory who, after funeral services at Second Presbyterian Church, was interred in Old Gray Cemetery with a footstone reading “The Children’s Friend.” Born in 1830, the Rev. Emory, a native of Fulton, N.Y., graduated from Lane Theological Seminary in Cincinnati and became a missionary for the American

Sunday School Union. He arrived in Knoxville in 1865 at the end of the Civil War. Knoxville had a population of 7,000 at the time and only a few of its churches had Sunday schools. The Rev. Emory soon succeeded in establishing 26 of them locally, from which several churches grew. Traveling by buggy, train and steamboat, he canvassed Chattanooga and Nashville, and established many more. But, over the years, his major progress was in “backwoods” areas where he started Sunday schools in which the membership eventually totaled more than 50,000. Along the way he influenced many to enter the ministry and a short while before the tragedy was elected moderator of the Knoxville Presbytery. After his death, the name change just seemed a logical choice and the Central Market became Emory Place. The Rev. Emory’s farm was in the Arlington community of north Knoxville. His son, Charles M. Emory, established Arlington Gardens there after his father’s death. He sold vegetable plants grown in beds or in some of the first hothouses in Knoxville. When the demand for houses in the suburbs grew in 1924 to 1926, Emory developed the upscale neighborhood and

named its two boulevards Fairmont and Emoriland, again honoring his father. The 1903 Sanborn’s Fire Map shows the WhittleSpence Trunk and Bag Company, with R.D. Whittle as president, occupying a large building in the elbow-shaped center of Emory Place. R.D. was the younger brother of James M. Whittle, who established Whittle Springs Hotel. Walla Walla Chewing Gum Co. occupied lots 8 and 10, but there were few other occupants. In 1910 St. John’s Lutheran Church acquired two lots at the southwest entrance to Emory Place and completed their historic sanctuary in 1913.

Its changed character from a market with stalls to free-standing buildings was shown on the 1917 Sanborn’s Fire Map. The church, the Crescent Steam Laundry and the O.J. Smith Cabinet Co. were on the right side. On the left were the Hinton Laundry and Dry Cleaning Co., the U.S. Post Office and the Walla Walla Chewing Gum Company. Emory Place has experienced a renaissance thanks to the efforts of architect and city council member L. Duane Grieve. He purchased Nos. 8, 10 and 12 Emory Place in 1982, gutted the buildings, replaced the wiring and plumbing,

installed sprinklers and updated the historic façade. Commendably, only after that considerable expense did he apply for and win a federal block grant that transformed a surface parking lot into an attractive pocket park and enhanced all the properties in Emory Place, which was added to the National Register of Historic Places on Nov. 10, 1994.

Record audience for Peyton I predict record attendance for Tennessee’s football coaching clinic this weekend. For $40, high school coaches can get three square meals, a souvenir gift bag and a batch of helpful stuff to take home. They’ll be treated to a Butch Jones pep talk, presentations plus Q&A opportunities with UT assistant coaches and a few words of wisdom from some of their own, prep coaches with championship credentials. I predict the clinic highlight (I want to say this gently to not offend the host) will be the keynote address by Peyton Manning. The legendary quarterback, almost always busy studying opponents’ defenses and shooting commercials, doesn’t make this kind of appearance very often. He did it for Phillip Fulmer in 2002. That Jones could get him on his first try says something significant about the new coach establishing relations with former Tennessee players.

Manning, in the top level of old Volunteers and an astounding success in the NFL, has kept Tennessee football in his heart. Some of his money is in the almost lavish Peyton Manning dressing room under the north end of Neyland Stadium. Some more of his money funds Peyton Manning scholarships, $7,000 per year for four years, minimum eligibility 3.7 GPA. Macy Harrison from Frisco, Texas, and Chris Barnes from Hardin Valley Academy were 2012 recipients. The part I like best is Manning shows up to present the scholarships. This is for real. Manning did his fair share as a football Vol – 33 school records, eight Southeastern Conference records and two

NCAA records. He produced 11,020 yards and 89 touchdown passes. He ran for 12 scores. No kidding. He graduated early – with honors – and stayed for his senior season. Getting drafted No. 1 did not change him into an egotistical monster. Winning and millions may have added another degree of confidence and a second or two to his colorful checkoffs and animated adjustments at the line of scrimmage but that’s just show biz. In fact, from my distance, he appears to be much as he always was. As famous athletes go, Manning does it about as well as you could ask. He sometimes yells at receivers but picks up the check when they go out to dinner. He still puts in the hours to maintain his level of play. He loves life but lives with dignity. He is rich beyond reason but generous beyond belief. Peyton and wife Ashley established the PeyBack Foundation in 1999 “to promote success of disadvantaged youth by assisting programs

Let mutual love continue. Do not neglect to show hospitality to strangers, for by doing that some have entertained angels without knowing it. (Hebrews 13: 1-2 NRSV) They aren’t strangers at all, but they do regularly qualify as angels. My friends John and Anne called unexpectedly today. Earlier, I had been talking to a colleague when my cell phone buzzed. I checked it and saw that it was Anne, and thought, “I will call her back later, after work.” Then things got busy, and

I was consumed by reports and trying to figure out where in the world check number 1240 had gotten to. (Bank accounts have been the bane of my existence recently, but that is a column for another day. Trust me when I tell you I am nothing if not stubborn when it comes to balancing my personal checkbook. However,

this was a business check, and I have to figure out its disappearance, sometime between now and soon!) My phone rang again, later in the afternoon, and it was Anne. She said, “We are about an hour and a half from Knoxville.” I had no idea they were anywhere south of the Mason-Dixon Line.

that provide leadership and growth opportunities.” Some in Knoxville have been recipients. He tried to do as much for Indianapolis as it did for him. Example: In 2007, St. Vincent Hospital renamed its child care segment “Peyton Manning Children’s Hospital at St. Vincent.” Some kids want to go there even when they aren’t sick or hurt. I don’t have a scorecard but youth organizations in Indiana, Tennessee and Louisiana, from whence he came, have received more than $4 million from PeyBack. Hundreds of needy families in Denver got free Thanksgiving dinners. Peyton’s NFL accomplishments are many – 12 Pro Bowls, four MVPs, six all-pro awards, the individual trophy from Super Bowl XLI. You might have missed the Whizzer White Humanitarian Award and the John Wooden Award from Athletes for a Better World. Manning has been named the most caring athlete. He has been honored as the Walter Payton man of the year. He received the Good Guy award from the SportThese are the friends who (22 years ago) helped us pack up our lives in New Jersey, preparatory to moving back to Tennessee. We had been here less than two weeks, striving mightily to renovate a neglected farmhouse, when they showed up, tools in hand, and helped clean and paint and actually unpack. That is no exaggeration! Anne unpacked the very boxes she had packed for me in New Jersey and put my kitchen together for me in Tennessee. Like I said: angels they are! I remember standing in the driveway at the end of

His I do believe he’ll draw address is that two weeks, and watching them drive away. I didn’t know when I would see them again. The awful thought struck me: What have I done? Two years after that summer, they spent a month with us exploring the American West: two vans filled to the brim with camping equipment, six kids ranging in age from five to 17, four adults, as well as various and assorted forms of entertainment for the teenagers who eventually were bored by mountains and scenic vistas. Since that time, we have managed a visit at least once

a year, sometimes twice. We have shared in family weddings, and have advised, encouraged and supported each other. We have listened, and cared, and sometimes disagreed. So here they were driving into town, and I was still at work, trying to find the errant check. But because it was John and Anne, I knew they would find their way to me, and we would have a great evening, and it would all be comfortable and easy, and we would pick up right where we left off. Because that is the way it is with “chosen family:” they are angels, and they are always welcome.

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

Inasmuch United is Saturday By Cindy Taylor Thirty-four churches throughout the Knox area will come together Saturday, April 13, for Inasmuch United Knoxville. Volunteers have less than one week to complete preparations for the massive 2013 mission. Participating churches in the Fountain City Cluster are hard at work and those involved say they’ll be ready. They hope to impact agencies, schools and individuals by covering many needs during this one day. Elaine Womack, a member of the Inasmuch United Knoxville steering committee, is one of thousands

of Inasmuch volunteers across the country. “We have 24 great projects in the Fountain City Cluster alone,” said Womack. “Our main purpose is to show God’s love to people through offering support in everyday living.” Services will be provided to Big Brothers, Big Sisters; East Tennessee Children’s Hospital, Fountain City Ministry Center, Human Animal Bond, Helen Ross McNabb, Mission of Hope, Rainbow Acres, Compassion Coalition and the Cerebral Palsy Home. Fountain City Elementary, Inskip Elementary, Sterchi Elementary, Gresham Middle School

and Whittle Springs Middle School will be recipients of landscaping, meals and spring spruce-ups. Other projects will include services to Agape Outreach Homes, Project Linus of East Tennessee and Samaritan Ministry. Advance Auto Parts in Fountain City will host a Car Care Clinic, Smithwood Baptist Church will offer a free car wash in the parking lot and meals will be provided for firefighters at Fountain City Station 15.

Welcome to The Neighborhood The Beaver Dam Baptist Church youth ministry seeks to evoke an atmosphere of community for middle and high school students on Wednesday nights. Middle school grades 6-8 meet on the “Front Porch” while high school grades 9-12 meet in the “Back Yard” inside the education building at the church. The umbrella of the youth ministry is dubbed “The Neighborhood.” Front Porch and Back Yard evolved from that concept. “The names give the ministry a homey feel,” said Marla Jellicorse, assistant to Scott Hood, Beaver Dam minister of students. Hood has always had a heart for youth, and Wednesday night youth

meetings serve as an outlet for his ministry technique. “My desire when I came eight years ago was to build our ministry so that we could equip and edify believers to reach the lost,” said Hood. “We have a goal and a mission to teach that to students.” As the ministry grew in numbers, a division between middle and high school became necessary. “There is a huge difference between a 6th grader and a high school senior. We divide our time between the two so as to target each on their level.” The mind-set of the neighborhood ministry is reminiscent of times when front porch and back yard visitations were a daily event among neighbors and fellowship was com-

mon. Hood says students are being taught to build relationships and to love and support one another as they would family and friends. “We are inviting students to come and hang out with us and see what God has to offer.” The middle school time at the Front Porch includes games, small group time, music and a message from Hood. The high school session in the Back Yard starts with music, a message from Hood and breaks to small groups. All are invited to join. Marla Jellicorse, student ministry assistant, and Scott Hood, Beaver Dam Baptist minister to students, hang out on the “Front Porch” in the eduChurch is located at 4328 cation building at Beaver Dam Baptist Church.

Shopper-News Presents Miracle Makers

‘The hardest fun you’ll ever have’ By Betty Bean The Farragut High School Robotics Team Jane Skinner and Jill Hudson with the Farragut is an extracurricular High Robotics Team’s robot. Photo by Betty Bean activity for which the students receive no extra credit and the sponsors receive no extra pay. So what is it that keeps Jill Hudson and Jane Skinner volunteering to work 30-40 additional hours per week while keeping up with their day jobs? They both grin. Hudson: “It’s not the money.” Skinner: “I guess if it were easy, we wouldn’t keep coming back. We wouldn’t be challenged.” Hudson: “If it were easy, everybody would do it.” Skinner: “And they just don’t know how much fun we’re having.” Hudson, who is from the Nashville area, teaches technology and engineering in Farragut’s Career and Technical Education department. Skinner, who is from Indiana, teaches science and is the lab and technology coordinator for Farragut’s science department. Back in 2009, Hudson had been looking at a variety of robotics programs and was feeling overwhelmed. “I decided there was no way one person could do it,” she said. Around the same time, Skinner and Kristin Baksa mountable,” Skinner said.

The Smoky Mountain Regional FIRST Robotics competition kickoff party was on the first Saturday in January, when this year’s game – Ultimate Ascent, the objective of which was to shoot Frisbees into goals, culminating in robots climbing to the top of tri-level towers – was announced at a party on the UT campus, where the kits were processed and distributed. And it’s not just about building robots. “There are lots of other things

involved,” Skinner said. “Marketing, videos, design, community service.” They attend engineering luncheons, do outreach in elementary and middle schools and are working on getting more girls to participate. They’ll have a robotics camp for rising 7th through 9th graders in June, a pancake breakfast in October and a Boy Scouts merit badge event in November. Skinner described the competition’s atmosphere as “gracious professionalism,” and said there’s a new word to describe the atmosphere – “cooperation” “It’s not cutthroat – it’s not us against them. It’s how can we help them,” Hudson said. “In the first game, there’s no competition at all; just running around asking other teams, “How can I help you?” In later rounds, teams will be chosen for alliances, but in the early rounds, nobody knows who their competitors will be. Halls, Hardin Valley and Oak Ridge’s alliance took first place at the Smoky Mountain Regionals on March 28-30. “It’s so much better when everybody works together,” Hudson said. “That’s one of the things we like about this and is something our mentors notice.” It all adds up to a new and unique learning experience. “Everybody works together and we all get better. It’s competitive, but you’re raising the bar for everyone.” “It’s not winner takes all,” Hudson said. “And ‘winner’ is a very vague word. You can have a great robot and not go to the finals. We win every year. We may not always bring home trophies, but we win every year. You’re not going to see a sign on the road that says ‘Home of 2013 Regional Robotics Champions,’ but we win through so many other routes. A lot of people call it the hardest fun you’ll ever have.” “That’s the big hook,” Skinner said. “They like learning and so do we. We’re lifelong learners.”

Slow start for Panthers Spring is an exciting time in the Powell High School athletic department. However, like the weather, things haven’t gotten off to a great start this year. That’s not to say things are bad, though. District tourneys are still four weeks away. And the Panthers have every intention of being ready. The softball team is currently 6-6 overall but 3-1 in the district with a home district game today (April 8) against the Central Bobcats. Despite being only .500, the team has some

impressive early-season wins over Hardin Valley and Oak Ridge. The team should have a good seed in the district tournament, and a good seed can go a long way in May. The same can be said for baseball, which has seen both woes and bright spots

of its own. The PHS baseball team is currently sitting at 8-7 overall, but what’s slightly alarming is the 2-4 district record. The good news is that the team appears to be coming on strong lately. The Panthers went to Murfreesboro for the Riverdale Warrior Classic Tournament. They didn’t leave with any trophies, but they certainly didn’t leave disappointed – having beaten two big Nashville-area teams: Mount Juliet 6-5 and Segal 1-0.

“We beat two pretty good teams,” said head coach Jay Scarbro. “We played real well.” The team showed signs of everything “coming together.” Pitcher Hagen Owenby gave a star performance against Mount Juliet and was complemented by good defense and Clay Payne’s hitting. Sophomore pitcher Hunter McPhetridge stepped up to secure the win against Segal. While the tournament was a positive experience, last week seemed to get the best of the Panthers as they played two talented district foes. Powell dropped a 10-2 game to Oak Ridge on Tuesday and two days later lost

a tough one to Campbell County, 5-2. Scarbro attributed the losses to defensive errors. “For the most part we have played pretty good defense. But when we make a mistake, it’s a very costly mistake,” said Scarbro. “And it’s at the most awful time. “Our hitters have put the ball in play and given us a chance,” said Scarbro. “But we have made some very painful defensive errors that have been the difference in about all of our seven losses.” This week’s schedule certainly won’t be any easier. Tomorrow the boys in orange and black square off

against Anderson County in Powell. AC currently sits at third in the district and is coming off a big win against Halls. On Wednesday the Panthers will head to Karns to take on the Beavers, currently first in the district. Scarbro knows exactly what the Panthers need to do to win. “We’ve got to have our defensive guys make some good plays for us,” he said. “As a team we have the ability to play with anybody on our schedule. We have playmakers at every position. Right now it’s just not coming together. We’ve got to turn things around in a hurry.”

Finger to play at Union College Powell High School senior Adam Finger has signed a Letter of Intent to attend and play football at Union College (Ky). Finger (510, 330 pounds) lettered for Adam Finger two years on the offensive line. He was part of a class that ended its 3-year varsity career with a 37-4 record and appearances in the 2011 Class 5A finals and the 2012 semifinals. Finger was part of an offensive line that paved the way for Powell’s all-time rushing leader and for the school’s No. 1 and No. 2 alltime total offensive leaders, said Panther broadcaster Bill Mynatt. Finger’s offensive line coach at Powell was Larry Neely.

No place like home It’s spring, and, as in June, things are “bustin’ out all over.” Everything’s blooming. It’s a beautiful sight.

Carol Zinavage

Carol’s Critter Corner Sadly, however, it’s not a beautiful sight over at YoungWilliams Animal Center. Because along with the daffodils and dogwoods comes another symptom of the season: unwanted animals. “Starting in the spring, the shelter usually receives an influx of puppies in need of homes,” says Young-Williams CEO Jeff Ashin. “It’s the start of mating season for dogs and cats, and unfortunately, many people have not spayed or neutered their pets and end up with litters of animals that they cannot care for.” The shelter is currently filled to capacity. In order to encourage adoptions and clear space desperately needed for the daily intake of unwanted animals, Young-Williams is reducing fees for all dog adoptions. Now through April 14, it’s offering $50 off the adoption fee for all puppies and $25 off the adoption fee for all adult dogs. That brings the fees down to $100 and $50 respectively.

Zura and Zina are best friends who would like to find a forever home together. Photo submitted

It’s a steal. That fee includes more than $600 worth of veterinary care: a physical exam, spay/neuter surgery, DAPP and Kennel Cough vaccinations, heartworm test, and one month of heartworm prevention, standard deworming, one month of flea prevention, nail trim and ear cleaning, and microchipping with registration. On Feb. 3 of this year, I adopted a shelter dog. He’s a Corgi/Shepherd mix, and I named him Barney Fife because he’s small, he’s full of bravado and he howls off-key. Barney had already been surrendered back to the shelter by one adoptive family. Like most dogs, he’s intelligent and sensitive; after so many hard knocks, he wasn’t sure he could trust his new home and situation. He was fearful, clingy and needy – a “velcro dog” – and he needed constant reassurance.

I did a little reading about Barney’s various problems. Turns out they’re quite common, and not only in shelter dogs. With just a little effort on my part, Barney began to turn around. A Gentle Leader leash helped him learn to heel on our walks. A crate helped him to feel safe. He easily learned some simple commands. He’s become much happier and calmer. He’s developed an affectionate friendship with my four (shelter) cats. I’m telling you this because you may have reservations about shelter pets. Yes, they’ve been through some stuff. Yes, they may have behavioral problems at first. On the other hand, you may luck out and get one who settles right in; it’s happened to me before. And of course, puppies are new to the world and haven’t had any problems yet. But my little guy needed some help. Now, as I watch him sleeping peacefully on the rug with his favorite stuffed toy, I’m reminded that the rewards of owning a shelter dog – of literally saving a life – are immeasurable. So here’s a heartfelt plea to all kindhearted souls out there: please consider bringing a shelter dog – maybe more than one – into your life. Visit either of the two Young-Williams locations at 3201 Division Street or 6400 Kingston Pike. Info: 215-6599, visit or Young-Williams’ Facebook page.

News from SOS Knox County Schools (KCS) serves more than 57,000 students in 88 schools and employs about 4,000 teachers. KCS is the largest part of the total Knox County government’s budget. Last June, the $406.5 million approved for school operations comprised about 60 percent of the county budget. Nearly $167 million came from the State Basic Education Program (BEP) and most of the remainder from county taxes. For fiscal year 2014, superintendent Jim McIntyre has proposed an operating budget of $419.75 million, an increase of 3.3 percent. KCS develops two budgets each year: one for operations (salaries, books, computers, utilities, etc.) and one for capital expenses, such as new school construction. The approval process goes through several stages. The proposed budget is presented to the community and school board in March. In April, the board accepts the proposal, amends it or declines it. If the board rejects a budget or wants changes, the proposal goes back to the school system. This cycle continues until the board approves it. The board-approved budget proposal goes to the county mayor’s office, where the mayor and his staff study it and roll the school budget, and other departments’ budgets, into the total county government budget proposal. Mayor Tim Burchett will present the entire county budget, including school funding, to County Commission in May. The commission votes in June. The board adopts a budget within those levels, with balanced revenues and expenditures.
