History lesson Historian Dennis Urban gave the PBPA a history lesson at its meeting last week. “Many people don’t realize the impact the Civil War had on the residents of Knoxville,” said Urban. “My presentation is not about battles or battlefields. It is about the people in Knoxville during that time period.”

The Powell High Alumni Association’s annual meeting and banquet was fun from start to finish. Past and future grads from 1938 to 2014 showed up at the Jubilee Banquet Facility on April 6 for an evening of festivities that included scholarship awards, entertainment, a brief business meeting and, of course, time to catch up with old friends. 2013 scholarships were awarded to Randall Peyton Gibbs and Victoria Jenkins. The Allan Gill Memorial Scholarship was awarded to Jeremy Fine. “I don’t think Daddy would have ever thought we would be giving a scholarship in his honor,” said Laura Gill Bailey. “If my great-grandaughter Leigha stays at Powell this will be our sixth generation graduating from Powell High School.” Lynnus Gill, a member of the class of 1938, spoke about family, school, work and how different life is today. “A long time ago,” (pause) “I was born. And I’ve still got a mouth full,” said Lynnus, finishing off a bite of chicken. “Now I’m sittin’ on the back porch in the sunshine.” Lynnus will turn 92 in June. He recounted days of attending school with cousin Allan Gill. “Aunt Myrtle would bring him to school and he’d beat her home every day.” Phil Campbell provided the entertainment. “I’m from East Tennessee, where the homes have wheels and the cars are up on blocks. Where the men are men and the women are national champions. “It’s always fun to come home. 12 million people come to our mountains every year. Most of them come to see how stupid we are. It generally costs them $1,500 to $2,000 to find out. “I don’t want to stand up here

Dine Out for Education

Community school coordinators reflect on first year

Knox County Schools’ 10th annual “Dine Out for Education” will be held Tuesday, April 16, at nearly 40 restaurants with 80 locations throughout Knox County. Participants who eat at the selected restaurants will automatically have 10 percent of their pre-tax total donated to the Knox County Schools Partners in Education program, which helps fund programs including the Career Fair for 8th graders and high school students, the Teacher Supply Depot and the Barney Thompson Scholarship. Nearly $20,000 was raised during last year’s event. Participating restaurants can be found at

Community school ming often dovetails perfectly with an organization’s need to provide it.

She is also concerned because many of her volunteers are college students who will finish their semester in early May. In spite of the problems, Long can tell that community school participants have become more engaged. “The kids come in excited to see the volunteers. They show me excitement about what’s going on in school, and they’re interested.” The Great Schools Partnership operates Knox County’s new community schools. It subcontracts with Project Grad at Lonsdale and with the YMCA at Green Magnet.

part of the nonprofit’s strategy for managing community schools. Since there was no program in place at Norwood, Great Schools manages it directly. Thomas says that this has been a learning year for the coordinators at the new community schools. “Last year, we were making it up as we went. This summer, we’ll be better prepared to train new coordinators.” He anticipates adding four more community schools next year. The initiative received $500,000 from Knox County Schools last year, and the same amount is included in this year’s proposed budget. Those funds cover transportation, security officers and after-school tutoring provided by Knox County teachers, says Melissa Massie, executive director of student support services for KCS. Other expenses have been covered by Great Schools through philanthropic and business sources, Thomas says, but he is hopeful that community schools will also be added to the city budget. “This is not just about kids doing better is school. It’s also a development initiative. It’s about healthy families and safer neighborhoods, things the city of Knoxville is very interested in.”

The beauty of Racheff

Ivan Racheff House and Gardens on Tennessee Avenue is open daily with extended hours during the Dogwood Arts Festival. Garden clubs in District 4 are charged with caring for the property by the Tennessee Federation of Garden Clubs, whose headquarters is housed at Racheff. Club members met at the gardens April 8 for the monthly Board of Governors meeting. “I am here all the time but I get blown away by the beauty with each visit,” said board chair Janet Oakes. The Racheff Home is on the National Register of Historic Places and the Garden earned a Level 1 Arboretum Certification in 2003 for its diversity of species. If you’re looking for tranquil beauty a bit off the beaten path, a visit to Racheff, especially during the Dogwood Arts Festival, is well worth the trip.

Historian Dennis Urban presented slides and memorabilia from the era. “Many people don’t realize the impact the Civil War had on the residents of Knoxville,” said Urban. “My presentation is not about battles or battlefields. It is about Sage Kohler the people in Knoxville during that time period.” Urban talked about families that were split or separated during the war when they chose to support opposite sides, along with some who were forced to leave town because of their loyalties. “You need to try and put yourself in the context of the people at the time. To understand the history you must read the accounts of those who were there.” State Farm agent Sage Kohler was the spotlight speaker. Kohler reviewed services offered by the company and talked about the importance of dealing with a financial planner with an excellent education. “I used to joke that my goal was to have more initials after my name than in my name,” said Kohler.

government Off to Dallas The formal dedication of the George W. Bush Presidential Library will occur Thursday, April 25, in Dallas with President Obama, President Clinton and President Bush (43) attending. Among those going from Knoxville will be U.S. District Court judge Thomas Varlan and wife Danni, Knoxville attorney Bruce Anderson and wife Monique, and this writer.

Victor Ashe

Varlan was appointed to the federal judgeship by President Bush (45) and confirmed by the Senate in 2003. ■ Former Mayor Daniel Brown will hold a fundraiser for his councilmanic re-election campaign from 5-7 p.m. Thursday, May 2, at the Beck Cultural Center on Dandridge Avenue. Brown is considered an easy winner in his re-election effort and is the second city incumbent running to host a fundraiser this election cycle. Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis held a fundraiser a few weeks ago at which Mayor Rogero endorsed his re-election. ■ It is somewhat surprising that legislation to eliminate our right to vote in the Democratic and Republican primaries for U.S. Senate got out of standing committees in both Houses of the Legislature. It actually got to the floor of the Senate last week where it was deferred to the last day of the 2013 session. It is sponsored by Sen. Frank Niceley and state Rep. Harry Brooks from Knox County. It would eliminate the party primaries for U.S. Senate candidates and have the Republican and Democratic members of the Legislature select each party’s nominees. How would this work in reality? Well, the legislation (which is still not dead) is vague. It says the lawmakers would meet in open session to select the nomi-

nees. It does not say if the voting would be by secret ballot or open voice vote. It does not say if the nominee would have to receive a majority of all the votes cast or just a plurality in case there were three or more candidates. It does not provide for any background checks or vetting which occur in a real campaign. The current Republican caucus is 70 House members and 26 senators for a total of 96. The Democratic caucus is 35 members. There is also Ken Williams, the sole independent who might not be allowed to vote in either caucus. For the Republican, 49 votes would be a majority, and 18 would be a majority for the Democrats. In both cases the House members outnumber the Senators by a margin of 3 to 1 and a nominee could easily win with no Senator of either party backing him/her. Each party would be denied the chance to assess candidates in the course of the primary campaign from Mountain City to Memphis. It would be ready-made for an unknown House member to piece together 49 or 18 votes (depending on party) to oust the incumbent Senator as their nominee and choose someone else. This bill has to rank as one of the more poorly conceived ideas put before the Legislature in recent years. Fortunately, it is on life support. Disconnecting the tubes is a good idea. ■ While the Rogero Administration has not annexed properties, it still inherits property coming into the city each year from annexations of 12 or more years back. As ownership changes on property for which lawsuits were filed, those lawsuits are dismissed. This is managed now by the city law department led by Charles Swanson. There are more than 150 lawsuits still pending so the city will continue to grow, but at a slow pace. Chattanooga could outpace Knoxville in the next few years and become the state’s third largest city.

Halls GOP

Property Assessor Phil Ballard will speak to the Halls Republican Club, which meets Monday, April 15, at the Boys & Girls Club of Halls/Powell, 1819 Dry Gap Pike near Brickey-McCloud School. Fellowship and snacks from 6-7 p.m. with meeting at 7. Reappraisal notices will be sent out April 17.

More roads, less money

Prepare for a head-on collision as Tennessee runs out of money to maintain and improve the state’s system of roads and highways. The problem is obvious; the solution is not so clear. Mike Edwards, president of the K nox v ille C h a mb e r, will appear on a panel this week at the Baker Center (see sidebar). He calls it “a Edwards chance to let everybody talk.” Higher gas prices, coupled with increased fuel efficiency, point to decreased gasoline consumption. Yet the state’s transportation agency (TDOT) is funded by a per-gallon tax on gasoline. “We have more people

Sandra Clark driving more miles and the cost of oil-based asphalt has increased,” Edwards said in an interview last week. “Bridges are in bad repair and big trucks on the interstates aren’t helping. The state gasoline tax was last adjusted in 1989 and the federal gasoline tax in 1994.” Yet Tennessee is ahead of many states because of a discipline maintained over years of both Democratic and Republican legislative majorities. Tennessee does not borrow money to build roads. Edwards called the programs in many states “a Ponzi scheme” in which cur-

Knox projects Knox County Commission will consider in April contracts for:

rent revenue goes to pay debt for previous road projects. “Our bridges must be maintained,” he said. “And a road has a fi xed life, based on slope (how well it drains) and usage. Say that’s 12 years. Then we would need to surface 1/12 of our roads every year.” Edwards said he’s no expert and was probably added to the panel to speak for businesses. He reflected: “Ike (President Dwight D. Eisenhower) raised gas taxes by 1/3 to build the interstates. And look what that did for commerce.” “Yeah,” I laughed. “Especially since the interstate system was presented as a national defense program – a way to move troops.” Reckon anyone has thought of fixing bridges and roads through the Department of Homeland Security?

■ Schaad Road: resurfacing from Pleasant Ridge Road to Knoxville city limits, estimated cost $122,900 with 75 percent funding from TDOT ■ West Beaver Creek Drive: resurfacing from Clinton Highway to Central Avenue Pike, estimated cost $329,900 with 75 percent funding from TDOT ■ Hendrons Chapel Road: from Chapman Highway to Kimberlin Heights Road, an estimated cost $263,325 with 75 percent funding from TDOT ■ Solway Road: resurfacing from Hardin Valley Road to Oak Ridge Highway, estimated cost $317,600 with 75 percent funding from TDOT ■ Roundabouts: at Bob Gray and Mabry Hood/ Hickey; at Bob Gray and Bob Kirby; and at Northshore Drive and Choto Road, construction contract with the Rogers Group for $1,776,782.28 of which $416,491.49 will be reimbursed to Knox County for utility line relocation.

Baker Center forum A forum ominously called “Taxes, Green Vehicles and the Death of Tennessee Transportation” is set for 6 to 7:30 p.m. Wednesday, April 17, in the Toyota Auditorium of the Baker Center at UT. Baker Scholars Eric Dixon and Caleb Williford will moderate the panel, with members: Kevin Bakewell, AAA; Mark

Burton, UT Transportation Research Center; Mike Edwards, Knoxville Chamber; John Schroer, TDOT commissioner; Kent Starwalt, TN Road Builders; Dave Huneryager, TN Trucking Association; Matt Murray, UT Baker Center and Center for Business & Economic Research.

Stacey’s world On April 2, Jay Leno got his biggest laugh line of the night at the expense of the Tennessee General Assembly: “Tennessee lawmakers have proposed a new piece of legislation that will penalize low income families by reducing their welfare benefits if their children perform poorly in school, as opposed to what happens to children of wealthy families who perform poorly in school – they become Tennessee lawmakers.” Maybe somebody in Nashville was embarrassed, but not Stacey Campfield, who had embedded the Leno monolog on his blog, Camp4U, by midday April 3. Any publicity is good publicity in Stacey’s world, and in its service, he’s been hitting hot button issues and blogging about them since his earliest days in the General Assembly, starting with his attempt to join the Black Caucus his rookie year in the state House and quickly moving into fathers’ rights, abortion, gun rights, birtherism, nullification, heterosexual sex, homosexual sex, sex education and Sex Week. Now a senator, Campfield’s carried more sexrelated bills than Bubba Gump’s got shrimp. But nothing except his misinformed ramblings about the origin of AIDS has gotten him more attention than the “Oliver Twist Bill,”

e h T e Se ,

Betty Bean which would cut off Temporary Assistance to Families payments for recipients whose children fail to maintain satisfactory progress in school. He rolled it through committee despite impassioned pleas from clergy and children’s advocates who say it’s inhumane. Last week he deferred it to summer study after opposition from Gov. Bill Haslam and others including staunchly conservative Rep. Todd Gardenhire of Chattanooga. Campfield says he wants to end the cycle of generational poverty. And of course he’s blogged about it: “There is a solution for this “grave indignity” perpetrated against them. Don’t apply for the money. There are plenty of others who would be happy to do what it takes to take their place.” A prudent lawmaker might have shut down the blog after getting sued for libel after falsely accusing a 2008 Democratic House candidate of being a convicted felon. But not the intrepid Stacey, who launched Camp4U on a computer issued to him shortly after being elected. In a deposition given in

the office of former candidate Roger Byrge’s lawyer David Dunaway, Campfield said the purpose of Camp4U is to inform constituents of what’s really going on in Nashville. Under close questioning, he admitted that he has collected campaign contributions via a Camp4U PayPal link. That link is no longer there. Neither is the innuendo about Byrge, which he took down but never apologized for or retracted (he blames his source, House GOP Caucus chair Glen Casada).

When Dunaway pressed him about using state property to defame Byrge, Campfield had trouble differentiating between his personal property and that which is government owned: Q: “So the taxpayers have been furnishing you with a computer since 2005 for Camp4U?” A: “No.” Q: “Who pays for that computer?” A: “The state.” So, if Byrge prevails, is the state of Tennessee an accomplice, or merely an enabler?

Leonard’s rarelyknown legacy MALCOLM’S CORNER | Malcolm Shell Former Farragut Mayor Bob Leonard left many legacies, including a park that bears his name. But one legacy he left is known by only a few. Leonard was responsible for the creation of the Farragut Folklife Museum. Without his vision, the town would probably not have one of its prime assets. But his vision for the future has resulted in one of the premier small museums in the Southeast. The story begins in 1986, when then-Gov. Lamar Alexander challenged all towns and small hamlets to come up with something unique in celebration

of Homecoming ’86, the 190th birthday of our state. The Folklife Museum was Farragut’s answer. Leonard, who was then the town’s mayor, initially thought that the project would be temporary, lasting perhaps several months. But the town’s positive response to the museum was overwhelming, and it became a permanent attraction. Leonard appointed Mary Nell McFee as museum director and Doris Woods Owens, who had recently returned from a teaching career in Florida, as assistant director. Mary

Nell retired from the project after a year and Doris assumed the helm and guided it through its fledgling years. Today, two of the museum’s galleries are named in honor of Mary Nell and Doris. To get the project off the ground, citizens were asked to donate anything of historical value to the museum, and as a result, a diversity of artifacts became the base of the museum’s inventory. But the going was slow, and the facilities in the old building behind the Campbell’s Station Inn were quite in-

adequate. In fact, it was a former garage where the Russell family parked their dairy trucks. After several months, Leonard and Owens learned that a large collection of Admiral David Farragut memorabilia might be available for purchase. The seller was contacted and subsequently offered the collection at a price of $80,000. Led by Mayor Leonard, the town solicited funds from citizens and was able to collect about $10,000, far short of the amount needed. Part of the collection was purchased – items determined to be of greatest value – and organizers tried to get the seller to reserve the remainder of the collection until additional funds could be raised. The seller agreed, but after several months, asked that the rest of the collection be purchased. At that point, Leonard was able to get a line item in the town’s budget to

Bob Leonard purchase the entire collection. Then-Vice Mayor Eddy Ford, and his wife Linda, drove a rental truck to Washington to pick up the rest of the collection. Eddy later recalled that, although they were exhausted, they were hesitant to stop at a motel because they were fearful someone might steal the items. Without Leonard’s vision, the Farragut Folklife Museum might have been a temporary attraction. But that line item ultimately

resulted in today’s beautiful museum. I have a passion for museums, and when traveling I always try to visit all the local ones. And as I exit each, I realize how fortunate we are to have a museum of the professional quality that is seldom found in other small museums. Leonard served on the Farragut Folklife Museum guidance committee from its inception and was awarded an honorary life membership for his service. As a committee member, he offered insight and guidance that was important in shaping the museum’s policies and procedures. After his retirement, he regularly served as a docent, entertaining visitors with his knowledge. His wife, Marie, carries on the tradition as museum docent, and through her, the museum’s founding family is still a part of the Farragut Folklife Museum.

Leadership for the future By Sandra Clark Jim McIntyre’s lasting legacy as superintendent of schools will be the people he recruited, mentored and promoted to leadership positions in the system. Graduates of the Leadership Academy are already making a difference. Expect more impact in years to come. Dr. Autumn Cyprès leads the program at UT, assisted by principal-in-residence Betty Sue Sparks, a retired administrator with KCS. Cyprès introduced 10 new fellows to the school board last week. She had them wear black suits, and it looked like a convention of morticians. McIntyre reacted by replacing his customary dark blue jacket with a bright orange one, eliciting a comment from board chair Karen Carson about a former UT football coach. “But I didn’t buy the pants,” said McIntyre. Cypres said 97 individuals have applied for the program, which now has 41 fellows (of which 31 are currently in school leadership and seven are doctoral students). “Seven of the county’s 10 rewards schools have fellows as their leader,” she said. Fellows will work with a mentor principal four days each week and will attend classes at UT on the fifth day during the 15-month program. Graduates will earn a master’s or education specialist degree and a state principal license. McIntyre called the program “our pipeline to continued great leadership.” School leadership is crucial to implementing changes driven by technology and higher standards. Meet this year’s cohort: Brad Corum has worked as an assistant principal at West Valley Middle School for four years. Previously, he served as an assistant principal with both Karns and Powell middle schools.

How to follow a legend Following a legendary coach is a daring high-wire act. History says there are far more missteps, slips, falls and crashes than happy landings. Robert R. Neyland? Harvey Robinson didn’t want to be head coach of Tennessee football in 1953 but accepted the call and tried to pick up where the General left off. He lasted two seasons. Paul “Bear” Bryant? Ray Perkins might have made it but that dreadful 5-6 season told Alabama boosters what they already feared, that the replacement was a mere mortal. The Crimson Tide could not tolerate human mediocrity. Perkins recovered but was never appreciated. An attractive offer from the Tampa Bay Bucs caused him to leave his alma mater.

Marvin West

John Wooden? Gene Bartow never accomplished perfection but had a very good record in two seasons at UCLA. He did not enjoy his work. Gene discovered unreasonable expectations and unsavory happenings behind the scenes, packed his bags and moved to Alabama-Birmingham. Bobby Knight? I didn’t even remember who was next after Indiana fired Knight. I had to look it up. The answer is Mike Davis. Tough act to follow.

Pat Summitt? Replacing one of the greatest coaches ever, historic ambassador of women’s basketball, was a monumental challenge compounded by the departure of five Tennessee regulars. Holly Warlick, 54, jumped at the opportunity. Pat passed the torch and handed Holly her whistle. The transition was not uncomfortable. The two had been partners almost forever. In the beginning, Holly was a track star at Bearden High. She came to UT on a track scholarship and walked on for baskets. She became Summit’s threetime all-American guard (1977-80). Holly went away for a few minutes, came back when called and was a very capable and totally loyal Summitt

The harder half They sent some Pharisees and followers of Herod to bait him, hoping to catch him saying something incriminating. They came up and said, “Tell us:… Is it lawful to pay taxes to Caesar or not?” He knew it was a trick question, and said, “Why are you playing these games with me? Bring me a coin and let me look at it.” They handed him one. “This engraving who does it look like? And whose name is on it?” “Caesar,” they said. Jesus said, “Give Caesar what is his, and give God what is his.” Their mouths hung open, speechless. (Mark 12: 13-17 “The Message”)

We complain about paying taxes; it’s right there in the Bill of Rights: “Americans have the right to complain about sending part of their hard-earned money to Washington.” Well, maybe it isn’t there in so many words, but still…. The fact that we surrender some of every

paycheck throughout the year, then take the time (and effort) to cope with a Form 1040, and actually sit down and write the check for what we owe (even if we grumble as we do so!) is a testament to the American spirit of patriotism. I love this country, and I pay my taxes. It is how we

Cross Currents

Americans keep a government in place. I know that the system isn’t perfect, but a government is a whole heap better than anarchy. The Jews knew that, too. They may have hated Rome and despised Caesar, but there was peace throughout the Mediterranean at the time, and although the Jews had to pay taxes (sometimes exorbitant taxes!), they were allowed to live and worship as they saw fit. We read this passage and think, “Yeah, OK, so I’ll pay my taxes already and make Caesar happy! And I’ll go to church, too, so that God gets God’s por-

the boat. That isn’t right. There was a lot of yelling and jumping around and running up and down the sidelines to get her message across. All this was punctuated with shrill whistling. It sounded like shift change at the factory. A few other bad days encroached but Holly Warlick walked that high wire and led her team to the SEC championship. It reached the Elite Eight in the big tournament. Some of us were disappointed with the ending. Guard Meighan Simmons summed up the hurt of falling short of the Final Four. “Holly deserved it.” Hart got it right. The coach has justified her promotion. Tennessee has recruited boldly. The future is bright. Holly and the legend are forever linked.

assistant for 27 seasons. All that made her part owner of eight NCAA championships. Tennessee hung Holly’s No. 22 from the arena rafters. The Women’s Hall of Fame bestowed full honors. God gave her a star for doing her best as acting coach for “Season Impossible,” last season when Pat was ill but still on the bench. About this time last April, Dave Hart rewarded Holly with the official assignment and a salary of $485,000. She assembled an excellent staff and generated some excitement but there were doubts. Southeastern Conference coaches, asked to vote in a preseason poll, smiled and picked Tennessee to finish fifth. Holly did not flee. Tennessee lost the opener at Chattanooga. Holly was shocked but hung in there. Injuries hit hard but the new coach stayed steady in

tion as well.” But there is the rub. What exactly is God’s portion? A lot of people flinch at the notion of tithing. And maybe Jesus was talking about money in that portion of his statement too: “Give Caesar his taxes and God His tithe.” Except for one thing. The words of C. S. Lewis keep running through my head. Possibly the most breathtaking, frightening description of what it really means to become God’s man or God’s woman is described in this paragraph from Lewis’ “Mere Christianity:” “Christ says ‘Give me All. I don’t want so much of your time and so much of your money and so much of your work: I want You. I have not come to torment your natural self, but to kill it. No half-measures are any good. I don’t want to

cut off a branch here and a branch there. I want to have the whole tree down….The moment you put yourself in My hands, that is what you are in for. Nothing less, or other, than that. You have free will, and if you choose, you can push Me away. But if you do not push Me away, understand that I am going to see this job through. Whatever suffering it may cost you in your earthly life, whatever inconceivable purification it may cost you after death, whatever it costs Me, I will never rest, nor let you rest, until you are literally perfect — until my Father can say without reservation that He is well pleased with you, as He said He was well pleased with me. This I can do and will do. But I will not do anything less.’” That is the harder half. Makes paying taxes look like child’s play, doesn’t it?

News from SOS More than 75 percent of the proposed $419.86 million Knox County Schools budget will be spent on “instruction and instructional support,” primarily to compensate teachers and specialized staff. Enhancing educator compensation to attract and retain talented teachers requires competitive pay. In the 2011-12 Tennessee Education Association profile, average classroom teacher pay in Knox County ranked 35th among the state’s 136 school districts, more than $10,000 less than top-ranked Oak Ridge. Nearby high-paying systems are Alcoa (second) and Maryville (fifth) . To address this pay gap, $7.59 million of the $13.2 million increase will go to educator compensation, with $5.2 million to raise teachers’ base pay by 2.5 percent. The remaining $7.59 million of the increase will cover: moving middle and high school principals to 12-month contracts, raising nonteaching (“classified”) staff salaries by 1 percent, sustaining Advance-PerformEXcel, the strategic compensation system that rewards teachers for meeting specified performance goals, and increasing staffing for the new Northshore Elementary, schools that acquired more students in rezoning and during the Vine Middle redesign. The one decrease from last year is $300,000 in central administration staff.

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.

Makayla Morton wins again

Baseball Panthers win ‘two huge games’ The Powell baseball team came up big last week, winning what head coach Jay Scarbro called “two huge games.”

Cory Chitwood

The first was a 12-5 victory over Karns on April 9. The Beavers were second in the district coming into the game. Scarbro attributed the win to exceptional pitching and consistent hitting with junior Dean Kidd getting 3 hits in 4 atbats, and senior Clay Payne hitting 3 of 5. The Panthers stayed hot and beat Anderson County on Wednesday. Powell was down 7-5 going into the ninth inning. After holding AC scoreless in the top of the inning, the Panthers engineered a comeback, winning 8-7. After RBIs from Payne and Kidd, senior Austin Bloomer came up with the walk-off hit that won the game. The Panthers are now 10-8 overall and 4-4 in the district, a notable improvement from the previous week. “It really did (start to come together),” said Scarbro. “We made key plays and had no huge errors.” Scarbro was also proud of the team winning at such a crucial time in the

season, with the district tournament starting on May 3. “We really had two very good team efforts. There’s not one individual you can point to and say he carried us,” said Scarbro. “We played well as a team.” Up next are the Central Bobcats, Monday, April 15, at Tommy Schumpert Park. Powell’s last district game will be Tuesday, April 16, against Central at 5 p.m. at Smokies Park in Kodak. The Powell softball team bounced back after a 14-0 loss to Karns on April 8, winning big April 10 against Central. Coming into the game, Central sat atop the district standings. But Powell wasn’t letting that stop them from a 4-3 win. The victory propelled the Panthers to 11-9 overall and an impressive 5-2 in the district. Next for Powell softball is a district matchup Monday, April 15, at Hardin Valley at 6. Following that, the Panthers get another shot at Karns on Tuesday, April 16 at Powell High. There won’t be much time to rest afterward, either. The Panthers take on Oak Ridge in Powell on Thursday, April 18. With three weeks until the district tourney, it’s crunch time. As the air gets hotter, so does the competition for both Panther teams. With district tournaments fast approaching, both teams appear to be heating up just at the right time.

By Cindy Taylor Makayla Morton is singing great for the second year in a row. She is the CTE Goes Live winner from Powell High School. She tried out her freshman year but didn’t garner the win. She took her sophomore year off from the competition due to her mother’s death. She won last year as a junior. This year’s school competition afforded her the win two years running. Now it’s on to Morton practice for the April 19 competition. “I usually sing country,” said Morton, who is struggling with allergies at the moment. This year she has chosen “Starships” by Nicki Minaj for her performance. “Winning isn’t everything to me. I’ll just let God do what He wants to do. This is just a great competition for kids in Knox County.”

Looking ahead after 25 years By Sandra Clark Sandy Loy is wrapping up the 25th anniversary celebration for Construction Plus Inc. by looking toward the future. “I’ve finally figured it out,” he says from his high-tech office at 601 Reliability Circle in the Koontz-Loy-Taylor office complex.

Construction Plus Inc. has earned ■ The 2010 National Small Business of the Year Blue Ribbon Award at the Small Business Summit of the U.S. Chamber of Commerce ■ The Pinnacle Award for Business Excellence from the Knoxville Chamber of Commerce

Sandy Loy CCM Twenty-five years might not seem long to an entrepreneur who started a business out of high school. But Sandy earned a bachelor’s degree (with honors) in architecture from UT in 1976. He followed that with a master’s degree in civil engineering, also from UT, in 1982. Starting as a structural engineer, by age 29 he was director of engineering services for TVA. He served as regional engineer for the American Institute of Steel Construction as well as project manager for a top 100 construction firm. He advanced to director of development and construction for Belz Enterprises in Memphis before returning home to found Construction Plus in 1988. “The business has evolved, but I’ve found the right balance,” he says. Starting as a general contractor, Construction Plus Inc. boomed during the 2003-05 period as the company practiced designbuild and later construction management. “I’ve had partners and as many as 40 employees,” he says. “Water finds its own level and so have I.”

■ Three School of the Year awards from the Tennessee School Boards Association ■ The Enterpriser Award for innovation ■ The EXCEL Award as one of the 25 fastest growing companies in East Tennessee

Construction Plus is smaller now and more focused with a core of key employees and Sandy Loy’s personal involvement in every project. Glenda Tipton, director of accounting and purchasing, has worked at Construction Plus Inc. for 15 years. Dan Guidali has been a project manager with CPI for 10 years. And Eddie Elder has been a job superintendent with CPI for 12 years. “The team is strong because we’ve worked together for so long,” says Loy. “We have a strong network of subcontractors. I treat everybody as a partner.”

Panther Sark Office Building built for Dr. Jerry Fussell in 1991 and 1998. Construction Plus Inc. is now restoring the building back to “as-built” quality with new infrastructure technology for energy management and security.

Advice for a young person starting out in commercial construction? “Get as much technical education as you can,” says Loy. “And also take business courses. That’s critical to success. It’s not enough to know the task. You must have business acumen. “Learn how important customer service is.” Loy’s website features him explaining that many contractors can make a good presentation, but “nobody will outperform Construction Plus when it comes to providing service to our clients.” Finally, Sandy says construction management is the future. “Over the next 15 years, construction management, done right, will be the predominant delivery mechanism (for new construction).” Construction management is a 30-year-old industry and Sandy Loy got an early start. He holds Certified Construction Manager (CCM) certification number 1432 nationally and was the first building contractor in East Tennessee to earn the CCM designation. Put simply, the process pairs a contractor and client in a collaborative relationship to save money while ensuring client satisfaction. Clients no longer worry about a contractor cutting corners to satisfy a low bid. The

KLT Office Complex

construction manager works with subcontractors to get the best results for the best price. Loy said the key is professionalism. “You don’t want a contractor to put construction management at the top of a contract simply to avoid a competitive bid. The selection should be based on real professional qualifications. Eventually construction managers will be licensed separately. “I’ve taken both and the CCM exam is 100 times harder than the general contractor licensing exam,” says Loy. The future is bright and the “R” word (retirement) is not in the picture – for both professional and personal reasons. “The 2008 crash extended my career,” he says with a smile. Loy is raising a granddaughter, and his face lights up when he talks about her. Additionally, Sandy Loy simply likes what he does. He enjoys the relationships he’s built with the people he works with and with his clients. “When you work for a com-

pany, you’ve got one boss. When you work for yourself, you’ve got a lot of bosses and you’ve got to like them. My clients are my bosses and I love the relationships I have with them. That’s what I do best.” Technology has changed the construction business. Loy expects to go paperless this year. “We’re all on iPads, and we’ve probably saved our clients $60,000 in printing costs,” he says. “Everybody (on the job) does not need a full set of drawings.” He uses SharePoint software to post drawings for subcontractors. He sends a text when a drawing changes and the sub uses a password to access the new drawing. “Now it takes a millisecond to transmit (and document receipt of) data that used to take days,” he says. “This means I can be out in the field more and can manage more projects simultaneously.” Kudos to Sandy Loy and the folks at Construction Plus Inc. for a successful 25 years.

Empower, engage, enrich Nationally known speaker Tim Richardson visited the Fountain City Business and Professional Association last week to try out some new material. Local attorney Anne McKinney introduced him, calling him “warm, giving and exciting.”

Sandra Clark

Richardson said he learned a lot by “working for the worst manager on earth” because “we learn more when we see things done wrong.” Empowerment: Good managers state the end result and free up their people to get there their way. “Don’t squelch motivation.” Engagement: Many people refuse to change with the times, he said. “We manage like the 1970s. We must throw away out-

dated concepts (just as we discard outdated equipment).” He challenged attendees: “What do I need to let go of to better lead my people?” Enrichment: Richardson gave six tips: Read six books a year to improve your work skills; read six more that have nothing to do with work. Listen to six audio tapes each year. Attend six personal improvement seminars, in person or online. Exercise six days each week, preferably first thing, and “you’ll be younger next year.” Take six vacations each year to refresh; a 1-week vacation and five shorter ones built around weekends. Turn off that cellphone. Look for six ways to improve yourself. Ask your co-workers and family. Have a plan and write it down. The BPA meets monthly at Central Baptist Fountain City and is open to all. Info: fountaincitybusiness. com/.

HPUD quickens pace Hallsdale Powell Utility District set 21 water meters and inspected 9 sewer hookups in March, an indication that new home construction is returning to the Powell and Halls area. The district treated 224.1 million gallons of water and 336.9 million gallons of wastewater during March. Commissioners OK’d pay-

ments to three contractors: $273,218 to Judy Construction for the Raccoon Valley Wastewater Treatment Plant expansion, which is about 60 percent complete; $158,986 to John Bouchard & Sons for the Melton Hill Water Treatment Plant improvements; and $76,186 to ES&H Inc. for Clinton Highway waterline improvements. “We’re enlarging the line to obtain better pressure,” said CEO Darren Cardwell. The project is about 60 percent complete.

Beware the donkey nod Rick Ross joined members of the Shopper staff for lunch at Litton’s last week. Rick works in business development for Studio 4, and he’s been in sales training for 12 years. He said the worst thing a manager can do is surround herself with “donkey nods” as he moved his head up and down. Whereupon, Shannon Carey and four salespeople shrieked, “Why are we here?” and Tony Cranmore said, “Wonderful burger!”

News from Office of Register of Deeds

By Sherry Witt

March 2012 saw about $110 million worth of property sales. Mortgage lending lagged slightly behind the figures from a year ago. Although the $286 million loaned against property in March was about an $8 million improvement over February’s numbers, it fell short of the $312 million loaned during March 2012. The largest transaction of the month was the transfer of a residential complex at 424 North Cedar Bluff Road for just under $10 million. The largest mortgage transaction involved financing for the same sale. The loan secured by CBRE Capital

Markets came in at $7.65 million. Preliminary analysis of the first quarter data shows a sustained period of growth in property sales. Since Jan. 1, 1,946 properties have sold in Knox County, compared to 1,674 during the first quarter of 2012. There has also been an increase in the total value of land sold, as $327.8 million worth of property has transferred so far in 2013, compared to $288 million during the first quarter a year ago.

Call before you dig Spring has finally sprung across many of the markets served by Frontier Communications, bringing with it construction projects large and small. Homeowners and construction companies should call 811 at least two working days before projects start. Calling 811 connects homeowners and contractors to their state’s onecall center, which in turn notifies the appropriate utility of a party’s intent to dig. Professional locators go to the prospective digging site to mark the approximate locations of underground lines with flags, spray paint or both. This service is at no cost to the homeowner or contractor. Striking a single line

can cause significant injury and damage and result in repair costs, fines and inconvenient outages. Every digging project, no matter how large or small, warrants a call to 811. Installing a mailbox, building a deck, moving a road, planting a tree and laying a patio are all examples of digging projects that require a call to 811 before beginning. Requests may be made 24 hours a day, 7 days a week. The depth of utility lines can vary due to erosion, previous digging projects, and uneven surfaces. Utility lines must be properly marked because even digging only a few inches carries the risk of striking an underground utility line.

Welcome to the neighborhood!

March data encouraging for real estate The month of March brought not only the beginning of spring, but also some c ont i nued positive signs for the local real estate Witt market. The month produced 706 property sales in Knox County, compared to 639 in February and 681 in March 2012. The total value of land sold during the month was $137.5 million – about $32 million more than the aggregate value of property transferred in February.

Corine Pennington is the first official resident of The Courtyard Senior Living facility. The new building is located at 801 East Inskip Road.

Cutting the ribbon on the new facility on Inskip Road are Judy Harper, city mayor Madeline Rogero, The Courtyards owner Michael Mursten, Lora Patterson, county commissioner R. Larry Smith and administrator Cindy Winegar. Said Mursten, “The real heroes are people that give their love to the elderly. The longterm success of the facility will be because of the great people on our team.” Administrator Cindy Winegar is excited to see the assisted living facility in the North Knoxville area. “This area is home to many elderly individuals and they have an opportunity to stay close to family and friends.” Photos by Ruth White

Temple students excel in fine arts By Elizabeth Jennings The 2012-2013 school year has been one of outstanding accomplishments in music and fine arts at Temple Baptist Academy. From elementary to junior high and high school, students excelled in both individual and group competitions. Students competed at the district, state and national levels.

! p m a C r e m S um screen with an SPF 15 or greater, even on cloudy days, and reapply it every two hours, or after swimming or sweating. Always keep plenty of water on hand when you’re playing or exercising outside. Unless kids are exercising vigorously for extended periods, plain water – not sports drinks – is the best way to rehydrate.

Water Safety

Keep kids healthy and safe this summer (StatePoint) It’s summer, and for kids that means it’s time for sports, swimming, biking and picnics. And while active outdoor time is healthy and fun, experts say it’s crucial for parents and kids to brush up on some seasonal safety tips. According to the experts at the American Academy

of Pediatrics (AAP), the summer poses its own set of risks. In order to help parents keep kids happy, healthy and safe all summer long, they are offering these timely tips:

Sun Safety Sunburns are not only unpleasant, they are

damaging to skin health. Minimize your family’s exposure to harmful ultraviolet radiation by dressing your children (and yourself for that matter) in cotton clothing with a tight weave, sunglasses and hats with a brim or bill. Stay in the shade whenever possible and use a sun-

Trampolines Even with netting, padding and adult supervision, experts say that home trampolines are dangerous. “Trampoline injuries are common, and can be potentially catastrophic,” says Dr. McInerny. “From temporarily debilitating sprains, strains and contusions to cervical spine injuries with lasting consequences, the risks associated with recreational trampoline use are easily avoided.” Thousands of people are

fence with a self-closing, self- latching gate. Parents, caregivers, and pool owners should learn CPR and keep equipment approved by the U.S. Coast Guard, such as life preservers and life jackets, at poolside.

Children should wear a helmet on every bike ride. Accidents can happen anywhere, anytime. Get your child a helmet specific for biking. Football helmets, for example, are made to protect the head from other types of injuries. Teach your children traffic and bike safety before allowing them to bike in the street. For example, they should always ride with traffic and use hand signals. If your child doesn’t have the skills necessary to use hand signals without swerving, he or she shouldn’t be riding in the street. For more summer safety tips, visit the AAP’s website for parents, www. By taking proper precautions, you can maximize the fun this summer by keeping kids healthy, safe and sound.

Drowning is a leading cause of death among children, including infants and toddlers, but parents can make swimming safer for kids with the right safety equipment, instruction and supervision. “While swimming lessons are helpful, they are not a foolproof plan. Parents should never – even for a moment – leave children alone near open bodies of water,” says Dr. Thomas K. McInerny, the 2013 president of the AAP. Home swimming pools should be surrounded by a four-foot-high, nonclimbable, four-sided
