Who knew? When did they know it? Mayors deny support of bill By Betty Bean

State Rep. Steve Hall faced pointed questions from members of the Council of West Knox County Homeowners who said they were kept in the dark about a bill that removes the scenic highway designation from a segment of Middlebrook Pike where Tennova Healthcare has purchased land for a new hospital. Hall said both city and county mayors knew about the bill and no one voiced opposition. Contacted after the meeting, Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero said she didn’t talk to Tennova representatives or to city lobbyist Tony Thompson about the issue, and would have advised Tennova to consult the neighbors about their plans

The information I had, the talking points were that the Knox County mayor was informed and the city mayor was informed. I don’t think there was a homeowners organization on the list (of those who had been informed of the requested designation change). “If the mayor had a problem, I Rep.

mile because they had purchased property to build a hospital and didn’t realize until after they bought it that the zoning limits them to building no higher than 35 feet,” he said. “This will create thousands of jobs during construction.” Sue Mauer, the group’s vice president, chided Hall: “Too bad the delegation in Nashville didn’t let word come back to Knoxville.” Homeowners council president Margot Kline said there was more at stake than a temporary construction job bonanza, because the bill opens the door to undesirable changes. “We are concerned with what else that might come in on their frontage – taller signs, visual clutter – things that lots of people fought hard to protect against. Although it was presented as providing a lot of jobs, it will also cost a lot of jobs,” she said.

Eat steak, support Knox North Lions Today (Monday, June 10) will be a big deal for Knox North Lions Club. Quaker Steak and Lube will act as a sponsor of the club by donating 10 percent of all sales. The June meeting was more intimate than usual with only a handful of members attending and no guest

speaker due to vacations and illnesses. Members did a little business then played catch up. Several shared stories of how life used to be. Others spoke about family members who have passed away and of newborns or children who are on the way. The club gave a cake to Greg Beeler and Rick Long, who celebrated birthdays. The club voted to skip the meeting the first week in July because of the Independence Day holiday. Marvin West is the planned guest speaker for the July 19 meeting and new officers will be inducted.

and connections to the existing roadways.” Wow. This road will transform Powell. It’s the biggest thing around here since the railroad came through. Callahan off-ramps: Crews got straight to work on the ramp improvement project at Callahan Drive, and much of the grading is complete. When finished, northbound traffic will have two ramp lanes off I-75, and the $1.2 million project should prevent backups onto the interstate. The contractor is APAC-Atlantic Inc. Estimated completion date is Sept. 30. The widening of Oak Ridge Highway (SR 62) has been delayed by utility relocations, according to TDOT spokesperson Mark Nagi. Also contracted to APAC-Atlanta Inc., the $32 million project from Third Creek to Schaad Road is estimated to be finished by year’s end 2014. Halls projects: The long-awaited widening of Maynardville Highway from Temple Acres in Halls to the Union County line is still just that – awaited. Nagi said “the earliest this contract would be in a bid letting would be Aug. 20, 2013.” Rights-of-way

have been acquired and legal notice published for demolition of structures within those rights-of-way. The project is 6.24 miles, and Nagi said it more than likely would be in a fall letting. Meanwhile, the worst parts of the road (where small cars might disappear) have been resurfaced. Ah, patience. There’s no word on the proposed Halls connector, a Knox County project that was designed and punted to TDOT. It would permit a left turn from Norris Freeway onto Maynardville Highway by removing a swath of median which includes tribute trees planted by the Halls Business and Professional Association about 10 years ago. And there’s nothing new on the proposed intersection improvements at I-640 and Broadway. Tazewell Pike: TDOT has opened bids for repaving SR 131 (Tazewell Pike) from SR 331 (Emory Road) to the Union County line. Apparent low bidders at the May 24 letting were APACAtlantic Inc., $543,597, and Rogers Group Inc., $568,638. As of Friday, the contract had not been awarded.

government Conflict on Civil Service board Sam Anderson, chair of the city Civil Service Board and former Parks and Recreation director, is being forced off the Civil Service Board, along with Don Green, a former city police officer, due to residency. Both live outside the city. Anderson lives immediately adjacent to the city boundary while Green lives in Anderson County.

Victor Ashe

I am trying to get to the bottom of this, but no one is owning up as to who triggered the legal opinion. It came out of nowhere and something smells. Evidence points to Vickie Hatfield as the one who played the pivotal role. Here are the facts. Vickie Hatfield, Civil Service director, when asked if she requested the opinion, emailed back to this writer, “No one filed a complaint or anything of that nature. It (residency issue) was inadvertently brought to my attention during a conversation about other matters. Once aware, I was unsure what to do with the information. I contacted Mike (Winchester who is the board attorney).” Notice Hatfield does not say who she had this conversation with or why it came up. Anderson has lived at 1801 River Shores since he was appointed almost two years ago. It has never been a secret. It is well known that Hatfield and Anderson do not see eye to eye. Anderson chairs the board and was doing Hatfield’s evaluation which had not happened previously and is due this month. Anderson had raised numerous issues on minority hirings which he feels Hatfield did not appreciate. Anderson’s term runs to March 31, 2016, and Green’s expires March 31 next year. Many city boards including KUB, the Airport Authority and KCDC do not require residency in the city. Over 40 percent of all city employees live outside the city. Anderson is one of the most informed persons ever to serve on this board and advocates strongly for improved minority hirings in a way few others can do. This problem can be remedied by the city doing

a voluntary annexation of Anderson’s home which is immediately adjacent to the city or asking Rep. Joe Armstrong in the next legislative session to change the law to permit residents of Knox County who have previously worked for the city to be eligible to serve. It is really in Mayor Rogero’s hands on how hard she wishes to overturn this suspicious maneuver from Hatfield who just happened to learn of something which had not been new for two years. This is no way to treat Sam Anderson after years of dedicated service to the people of Knoxville. It is also a test of the current Administration’s commitment to correcting a bad situation. I am convinced Mayor Rogero did not want this to happen. But how will she move to overturn it is the question. ■ A public hearing is 6 p.m. today (June 10) at Sacred Heart Cathedral on Northshore Drive to discuss the future of Lakeshore Park. It’s cohosted by the city and the Lakeshore Foundation Board chaired by Dee Haslam. This is a great opportunity to learn about the future of the park as the state land is transferred to the city, as well as to give input into those plans. Public is invited. ■ Former Knoxville Vice Mayor Mark Brown, now a Knox County General Sessions Court Magistrate, is getting married Aug. 23 in Memphis to Chenile Crenshaw. Crenshaw attended the University of Tennessee with Brown many years ago where they first met. Brown’s first wife, Marcia, died almost three years ago after a lengthy illness. Brown was recently reappointed to a new 4-year term by the Knox County Commission. Brown was a very active and effective City Council member. ■ Court of Criminal Appeals Judge Joseph Tipton of Knoxville has advised Gov. Haslam he will not seek a new term in the August 2014 state judicial election. Under the law, the governor will choose from a list of three names submitted to him by June 30, 2013, before the current nominating commission goes out of business. (The Legislature failed to extend it.) The new appointee will be voted on by all Tennessee voters in August 2014 for an 8-year term commencing Sept. 1, 2014.

The problem with Price So here’s the candidate: Experience? Check. Integrity? Unquestioned. Reputation? Unblemished. Temperament? Unflappable. Patriot? Volunteered for National Guard, served with 278th in Iraq. Family guy? One wife, two kids. Religion? Arlington Church of Christ; preacher’s kid. Smarts/Education? Harvard law degree. Active in community? President, American Legion, Post 2 But here’s the rub: Assistant District Attorney Leland Price, co-prosecutor in the seemingly-endless trials of the four defendants in the 2007 killing of Channon Christian and Chris Newsom – probably the most notorious murder case in modern Knoxville history – is a Democrat. Price is District Attorney Randy Nichols’ go-to guy in the most difficult cases, and nobody was surprised when

Betty Bean

he was tapped to handle the cases against the four defendants, two of whom had to be tried twice when Judge Richard Baumgartner was found guilty of misconduct that tainted the verdicts. Next year, he’d like to succeed Criminal Court Judge Mary Beth Leibowitz, also a Democrat, who was appointed in 1989 by Gov. Ned McWherter and who will step down next year after a distinguished career. Judges serve 8-year terms and tend to stay put until carried out feet-first, so an open seat will probably attract a lot of contenders. Few, however, will have credentials that match Price’s. He is a quiet, thoughtful, smart-as-a-whip workhorse who grew up in Nashville and got an undergraduate degree in American History at David Lipscomb, where he was a scholarship student. He wanted to go to

law school and was encouraged to apply to Harvard by a professor who recognized his potential. He got his law degree in 1996. “I just now paid off my law school loan,” Price said. “I basically mortgaged my brain.” His first job was with a firm in Birmingham, but he quickly decided that he wasn’t in the right place. “I wanted to be a prosecutor and be in a courtroom,” he said. “So I sent my resumé out across the state and Randy Nichols was the one who hired me. Now, looking back on it, it’s like it was meant to be.” A big factor in falling in love with Knoxville was meeting his wife-to-be, Niki Humphreys, a UT student intern in the Knox County Attorney General’s office. Niki, who would later go to law school, wrote weekly movie reviews for the Shopper News, and one Friday night Price invited himself to join her at the Halls Cinema. “She says that wasn’t a date, I say it was. We started meeting at the theater every Friday, and one time

Leland Price

we ate at the Bel Air Grill. I think she considers that our first date. “Almost instantly I knew I had made right decision (coming to Knoxville). I like Knoxville and being in East Tennessee and love hiking and UT sports. Love my job, love the town and once I met Niki, that sealed it. I wasn’t going anywhere.” Looking at the resumé there’s only one reason why Knox Countians wouldn’t elect Leland Price to serve as Criminal Court judge, and it’s pretty damn flimsy: That D behind his name.

Who owns our schools? A delicious debate is heating up regarding ownership of public school buildings. It’s not clear cut, and them that’s got the keys don’t want to give them up.

Sandra Clark

We’ve got schools built by the school board through taxes allocated by law to it. The school board owns those keys. We’ve got schools like the new Carter Elementary where Knox County government stepped up and built the facility. Last week Mayor Tim Burchett got the keys from the contractor. When will Burchett hand over the keys to Superintendent Dr. Jim McIntyre? We’ve got other schools that came to the county from the former city school system. I’m not sure those deeds were ever straightened out. Know why? Because some schools were owned by the city school board and others by the city itself. So some deeds were conveyed to the county while others stayed with

the city. Can you parse ownership at Christenberry Elementary where the school gym is also the city recreation center and the ballfields are probably still mowed by Larry Cox? Commissioner Dave Wright said (paraphrasing) that if it’s a Knox County school then Knox County obviously owns the building. A majority of the school board would disagree. Issues of security, maintenance and even usage cloud the discussion. Traditionally, Election Day voting happened at schools, particularly outside the city limits where public buildings were scarce or nonexistent. A couple of decades ago, the Election Commission requested that schools be closed on Election Day to reduce problems with parking and access. The school system complied. Starting in 2014, the state is requiring 180 days of actual classes. So the school board is trying to tweak the calendar. It makes no sense educationally for schools to close on Election Day, a Tuesday. (By law, the Election Commission can commandeer public buildings and does not have to pay.) Indya Kincannon says schools should not close on

Russ Watkins of Partners Development presents the keys to Carter Elementary School to Mayor Tim Burchett. Photo by Ruth White Election Days. “It’s a unique opportunity for students to see civics in action. It’s a rare opportunity for voters to enter schools and get a glimpse of what’s happening inside. “The logistics of sharing the space are manageable,” she said, because of early voting. Also, it’s convenient for parents to vote when dropping off their kids. “And we need more parents of school-aged kids to vote.” Board member Doug Harris also wants schools open on Election Day. The issue was so contentious that the board deferred a decision until July. The choices are painful: start school on Friday, Aug. 8; wipe out the Wednesday holiday before Thanksgiving; cut the winter break at Christmas; or extend the school year. Staying open on Election Day has got my vote. After all, schools are safer than ever. We just anted up $1 million for armed guards at every school on every day. This might give them something to do.

Meanwhile, the fuss over ownership will blossom this Thursday when the joint Education Committee of county commission and the school board meets at 4:30 p.m. in the conference room of the Andrew Johnson Building. Here’s betting the school board wants ownership of its buildings; the commissioners want ownership for Knox County; and the law director’s office will side with commissioners.

The Campfield criteria State Sen. Stacey Campfield takes issue with a recent poll of folks under 30 who expressed discomfort with the Republican Party. In the Bloomberg Report, Campfield said, “As for youth polling, young people often say and do things completely different when they actually grow up, get a real job, begin paying taxes and start trying to raise a family.” Campfield’s criteria for adulthood begs the question: When might he be planning to try it?

The master photographer HISTORY AND MYSTERIES | Dr. Jim Tumblin

James E. Thompson (1880-1976) “Not merely were the Thompson pictures used as powerful aids in those early days, but their use and value – and the infinite variety of subject matter – grew with the park movement. It requires no stretch of one’s imagination to realize that without the help of these magnificent views there might have been no national park in the Great Smokies.” Those words are from the definitive history of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, Carlos C. Campbell’s “Birth of a National Park in the Great Smoky Mountains” (University of Tennessee Press, 1960). A close look at James Edward “Jim” Thompson’s productive career will show that he was indeed the right person at the right place at the right time. Thompson was born in Morristown on Sept. 25, 1880, the son of C. Mortimer and Hattie Stearns Thompson. When the family moved to Knoxville, Mortimer went to work as a city building inspector. For a time the family lived in Blount Mansion on West Hill Avenue. Jim had completed 4th grade when he quit to go to work, first for his father, and then in order to be out on his own, for a Chattanooga contractor. But he came back to Knoxville to work in drafting for the George F. Barber architectural firm. Young Thompson was an avid amateur photographer and, as a sideline, did

The earliest locations of Thompson Photography Company were in Jim Thompson’s home on Church Street and then on Lowery. The company’s later Snap Shops had several locations in Knoxville and Gatlinburg. Photo courtesy UT Special Collections photo finishing work for his coworkers. For a time he worked for the city’s only photo supply company at the time, the O.C. Wiley Company on Gay Street. Then he set up a darkroom in a bathroom in his home at 711 E. Church St. and, when he needed more room, erected a building in a lot behind the house. His career received a real boost from his now-famous photograph of the audience attending the opening of the Bijou Theatre in 1909. As he stood on the stage of the theater facing the audience with his massive camera, he warned them not to panic when he set off the flash powder he used before flashbulbs were developed. Several other local historic events, such as Gay Street’s Million-Dollar Fire (1897), the Tennessee marble exhibit for the St. Louis World’s Fair (1904) and the New Market Wreck (1904), might never have been photographed except for Thompson’s fore-

sight. He also produced numerous portfolios for the C.B. Atkin Mantel Company, which helped to make it the world’s largest mantel manufacturer. Thompson began photographing in the Smokies as early as 1913, when it required a two-day expedition just to reach the mountains from Knoxville 40 miles away. His heavy view camera required 8x10 inch glass negatives with as many as 50 negative holders and a massive wooden tripod, for a load totaling about 75 pounds. On the rugged trails he usually needed one or more assistants with the attendant difficulty of keeping them nearby to capture scenes when the light was optimal. Early in the 1920s, Thompson became a charter member of the Great Smoky Mountains Hiking Club. He was a close friend and hiking companion to two men who would be highly influential in establishing the national

park, Carlos C. Campbell and Col. David C. Chapman. They were also members of the Smoky Mountain Conservation Association, which was working to influence Congress in its decision to establish the park. Thompson was designated the “official” photographer because he already had a large collection of photographs. A congressional committee met in Asheville, N.C., on July 30, 1924, to discuss the location of the park. Competition was fierce. Among the 30 sites under consideration was North Carolina’s Grandfather Mountain. Chapman was invited to attend and went to Thompson with these instructions: “I want you to put all the pictures you can into the back seat of this car. I want them all put in the room where we meet.” Thompson could barely squeeze his mural-sized photographs into the small room. Although amazed at their beauty, several members thought the colorized photographs of the sweeping vistas were faked and the committee chair decided to postpone the decision until he could see the area personally. Two committee members later journeyed deep into the rugged mountains to see exactly where the photographs were made. They were particularly impressed with the panoramic view from Mt. LeConte’s Myrtle Point and Cliff Top of the Chimney Tops, Clingman’s Dome and Mt. Guyot. The big announcement came on Dec. 13, 1924. The committee, unable to narrow the choice to just one area, recommended the establishment of two new parks: the first in the Blue Ridge Mountains of Virginia (Shenandoah National Park) and the second, and later, the Great Smoky Mountain National Park. Much had to be accomplished, including the pur-

chase of the land in the park’s proposed 704,000 acres. The clincher did not occur until March 22, 1927, when Col. W.B. Townsend’s Little River Lumber Company sold its 76,507 acres for $273,557.97 or about $3.50 per acre. North Carolina had paid $9 to $12 per acre for similar land. When Tennessee Gov. Austin Peay received the 151 pages of deeds for the LRLC’s property and when Tennessee’s share of the cost ($183,371.73) was paid, the establishment of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park was assured. However, there was still much road and facility work to be done and the park wasn’t chartered by Congress until 1934. President Franklin D. Roosevelt spoke at the formal dedication of the park at Newfound Gap on Sept. 2, 1940. The park remains one of the largest protected areas in the eastern United States and is the most-visited national park. Thompson’s commercial photography business continued to grow with up to 30 employees, many working in the colorization process. Its retail stores, the Snap Shops,

established locations on Gay Street, Clinch Avenue, Peters Road, in Western Plaza and in Gatlinburg. When Gen. Robert Neyland arrived to coach UT football in 1925, he used a rudimentary technique of still photography to enhance his coaching. Jim Thompson was soon brought aboard to film both practices and games and refined the technique, eventually introducing moving pictures. After a long and illustrious career, Thompson passed away at Park West Hospital on March 20, 1976, at age 95. He had a perfect attendance record for 40 years in the Rotary Club, was a charter member of the Smoky Mountains Hiking Club, served several terms as president of the Great Smoky Mountains Conservation Association, was declared a “Master of Photography” by the Photographers Association of America (PAA), served on the PAA board for 12 years and was elected as its president. He was appointed to the National Park and Forest Development Commission by Gov. Frank Clement in 1953. He is interred at Highland Memorial Cemetery.

Too much Alabama talk Considering that they don’t play until late October, there sure is a lot of chatter about Tennessee-Alabama football. Can you believe there are people running loose in the neighborhood who want to end this relationship after just 112 years? And they claim to be fans. I say they need professional help and maybe guide dogs. College football is or was based on rivalries. Geographic proximity was the original concept of conferences. It was backyard brawls, us against them, Hatfields versus the McCoys, Yale against Harvard, Auburn against Georgia. That is why stadiums are large. I understand LSU coach Les Miles wanting to stop permanent cross-division

It won eight of the first 10. Gene McEver returned the 1928 opening kickoff 98 yards for a touchdown. Tennessee never trailed. Tennessee won, 15-13. That was the beginning of change. There were 40 punts in 1932. Defenses were that good on wet ground. Alabama punted poorly in the fourth quarter. Tennessee won, 7-3. Johnny Butler twice reversed his field on a serpentine 56-yard run, highlight of the 1939 victory. Incidentally, Tennessee opponents failed to score that season. All-American Dick Huffman beat up All-American Harry Gilmer in 1946. Huffman wore orange. Andy Kozar scored the deciding TD in the final minute of 1950. Tide quarterback Snake Stabler threw away the football to stop the clock in 1965 – on fourth down. Bubba Wyche led a sig-

nificant upset of Alabama in 1967. Albert Dorsey intercepted enough passes to become an All-American. In his fifth game as Tennessee coach, Bill Battle, 29, produced a 1970 victory over his mentor, the legendary Paul Bryant. Two years later, Alabama scored two touchdowns in the final 36 seconds and inflicted a crushing defeat. After 11 consecutive losses to Alabama, Mike Terry intercepted a pass in the end zone with 17 seconds left to seal Tennessee’s stunning 35-28 upset. That was 1982. The next year, Johnnie Jones raced 66 yards for a fourthquarter touchdown to again stun the Tide. Blitzing linebacker Dale Jones made one of the great plays in Tennessee history to save the 1985 triumph. In 1990, in a sudden reversal, Alabama blocked

a winning field goal at one end and kicked a winning field goal at the other. The Tide went 8-0-1 between 1986 and 1994. Tennessee won nine of 10 between 1995 and 2004. Peyton Manning and Joey Kent started that streak with an 80-yard touchdown pass on the first play. Jay Graham made the big play the next season. Peerless Price returned a kickoff 100 yards in ’98. That was a good year. It took five overtimes but Casey Clausen led the Vols to victory in 2003. With 13 seconds remaining, Alabama won with a field goal in 2005. This stuff is tradition. Memories are priceless. Not much has happened lately but things will change. Nick Saban said Tennessee now has a coach.

In the first chapter of Genesis, there is the account of the creation of the universe: light, then the heavens and the earth. In the second chapter of Genesis, we have the account of how God creCross Currents ated Adam, forming him out of the dust of the ground, and Lynn then Eve.

time, in large chunks of time – eons and eons of time. (As one pastor explained it to me, “’In the beginning, God….’ Everything else is methodology!”) My point is this, however: Adam was created a man; he became a soul through the blessing of God’s own breath. I sometimes think of this in terms of childbirth. A baby is born from a water environment, and has to have his mouth suctioned out by the doctor to clear the airways. It is at that moment that the baby is able to scream his indignation at being pushed from his dark, warm, cozy, floating environment into a world where gravity makes him feel that

he is falling. As an additional insult, his body is cold for the very first time. He finds that crying feels pretty good, and he keeps at it until he is bundled in warm blankets and handed back to his mom, and his rosebud mouth finds its first meal. Almost none of his potential abilities work yet. He has to learn to suckle and sleep and grow. He has to learn to walk and talk. He has to learn to love and forgive. He has a lot of learning to do. He has to become a soul. It won’t always be easy. He will mess up. He will forget. He will get hurt. He will grow. He will become. Just like Adam. Just like all of us.

Discover Grace, discover community By Theresa Edwards Each month, Grace Baptist Church offers a free lunch and “Discover Grace” class to introduce newcomers to the staff and the church’s beliefs.

Executive pastor Stacey Bearden leads the “Discover Grace” class to introduce newcomers to the church.

Grace views the church as a family, brothers and sisters in the Lord. “The church is here to help meet the needs of its family ... physically, emotionally, spiritually, monetarily, whatever it may be,” said senior pastor Ron Stewart. “A Christian without a church family is a spiritual orphan,” he said. “A lot of Christians are not members of a church, but it’s a lot harder. It’s a lot easier to have a family to lean on in times of trouble.” The church is also a place where members can use their talents to serve one another. “Some people think a large church would not have a place for new members to serve,” said executive pastor Stacey Bearden. “But a large

More than 286 volunteers make up Grace’s choir, instrumental and media teams. Photos by T. Edwards church needs more volunteers. “It takes 150 volunteers every Sunday to minister to the children at Grace.” The next step after the “Discover Grace” class is a new series “Discover Community” 10:30 a.m. each Sunday for seven weeks. It


started June 9 in Cullum Hall. This series enables new members to discover the function and experience of

Grace home groups through a fun, unique and interactive way. The goal is to connect each member with a home group community to continue

the spiritual journey together. To register for “Discover Community” email Brian Hellard at bhellard@

interns Meet the 2013 Shopper News interns Roxanne Abernathy is a home-schooled 8thgrader. She hopes to be productive during this summer’s intern program and learn new things about Knoxville. Her two passions in life are acting and writing, with an emphasis on the acting. Laura Beeler will begin the 9th grade at Halls High School in August. She wanted to participate in the Shopper News intern program because “there were a lot of great people to meet and places to go on the itinerary.” She said it will inspire her to “look more deeply into specific degrees and jobs.” Her three main interests are photography, soccer and piano. After high school, Laura plans to study pre-law at the University of Tennessee. Jackson Brantley, a 9th grade student at Union County High School, has a busy summer planned. In addition to participating in the intern program, Jackson will attend a couple of basketball camps. Visiting the Sunsphere high above the city is on the top of his list of things to do. After high school he wants to become an engineer. Paul Brooks will head to South-Doyle High School in August as a 9th-grader. During his time as an intern, he is most looking forward to “taking pictures and getting to know people of our great city.” Gibson Calfee will be a 9th grade student at Union County High School. He enjoys playing soccer and hopes to go into the medical profession after high school. While working with the intern program, Gibson is excited to get the opportunity to visit

the Sunsphere in downtown Knoxville. Sarah Dixon, a 10th-grader at Halls High School, is a secondyear intern. “Being back at the Shopper has really sparked a desire to pursue my dreams,” said Sarah. “I love the staff’s enthusiasm, and I have so much to learn from Sandra in the field of politics. I am excited to spend my summer with such amazing people,” she said. Sarah enjoys playing in her school’s marching band and in the drum line. She is also a madrigal singer. Joshua Mode is a sophomore at Halls High School. His goal as a Shopper intern is to “have fun and explore news stories throughout our vast community.” Zoe Risley is a rising 8th-grader at Vine Middle School. She hopes to meet new and interesting people this summer during her internship and share “cool” information with Shopper readers. Her favorite pastimes are acting and singing. Lindsey Sanders, a 7th grade student at Halls Middle, joined the Shopper intern program to meet new people, become a better photographer and to have fun. She enjoys swimming, photography, camping and being outside. She would like a career as a photographer, animal rescuer or swimmer. Taylor Smith is a rising 9th-grader at SouthDoyle. She is most looking forward to new experiences during her internship. She plans to become a pediatric oncologist someday.

‘So you want to be a reporter?’ This summer’s Shopper News summer intern program kicked off last week with a tour of the big press at the Knoxville News Sentinel, lunch at the legendary Litton’s restaurant, a stop at Fountain City Art

Center and Fountain City Park, and a visit to Cumulus Media’s studios in Bearden. The interns wrote about their experiences with some guidance from Shopper staff.

Printing at the News Sentinel By Sara Barrett Knoxville News Sentinel commercial print coordinator Karen Schmidt w a l k e d our interns through the process of printing a story starting with the folks in the News Sentinel newsroom. operations Quick turndirector Mark arounds and Beaty stressful deadlines make for a quiet atmosphere so everyone can concentrate. Schmidt said the expression “Watch your Ps and Qs” came from early typesetting when letters were placed in a tray backwards and upside down. If the typesetter were not paying attention, the Ps and Qs could be switched. Pre-press includes a room of computers and staff checking and re-checking files for

specifications that include correct color and page layout. Some of the publications printed on the press include The Oak Ridger, Farragut Press and Grainger Today in addition to Metro Pulse and, of course, the Shopper News. The seven-story-high press is 974 metric tons of printing power that can produce 70,000 copies per hour. The first of its kind in the United States, it is known for mostly troublefree production. Intern Laura Beeler was shocked by the noise it produced and noted the press operators working with ear protectors.

the interns walked through a hall of framed front pages, including the news of the Titanic sinking. The Sentinel’s circulation guy Marshall Smith

came along and suggested to Sandra Clark that if she kept looking, she might find her birthday on one of those pages. She was looking at 1926 at the time!

Lunch at Litton’s The interns were treated to lunch at Fountain City’s famed Litton’s restaurant. Cheeseburgers, chicken tenders and a few salads were among intern fare. Erik Litton, a 4th-generation restaurateur, made sure the interns had everything they needed for the best lunch around. Chocolatechip cookies served for dessert would have been more appropriately named “chocolate chunk cookies,” according to intern Joshua Mode. The students from Erik Litton greets the interns while they enjoy lunch at Litton’s South Knoxville had never in Fountain City. Erik said he’s a fourth-generation Litton at the eaten at Litton’s. “I can’t wait until I get my driver’s restaurant and his son will be a fifth. Photo by Sarah Dixon

license so I can bring my little brother here,” said intern Paul Brooks. After lunch, reporters Sandra Clark and Jake Mabe talked about the newspaper “bidness.” Mabe said when it is time to choose a career, they should choose to do something that they love. “If you love what you do,” he said, “you’ll never work a day in your life.” Mabe said to always “tell me a story,” and Clark said a firing offense is spelling someone’s name incorrectly. Don’t worry. No intern has yet been fired.

In addition to their internship with the Shopper News, interns Zoe Risley and Roxanne Abernathy are looking forward to acting in a new location this summer. Children’s Theatre of Knoxville has moved to its new location at 109 East Churchwell Avenue. Roxanne said the previous location was like “a ga-

rage next to a graveyard.” The young thespians say the move to a larger space will give more kids a chance to try acting. Zoe will perform in the theater group’s first performance at the new facility. “Babe, the Sheep-Pig” will be performed through Saturday, June 22.

Touring Cumulus Media By Sara Barrett After a quick dash into Long’s Drug Store to say hi to Hank Peck and the gang (“Come back and have a milkshake,” said Hank), our group continued on to Cumulus Media in Bearden, home of WIVK, News/Talk 98.7 and The Sports Animal.

Promotions guy Brian Shoesmith showed us around and introduced us to radio legends Colleen Adair, Gunner and Phil Williams. News director Catherine Howell talked to the group about radio reporting. Howell says she finds most of her news stories

Fountain City Art Center By Paul Brooks The Shopper News interns stopped by the Founta in City Art Center after lunch and spoke with its d i r e c tor, S ylv ia Williams. Sylvia Williams The center was opened in 2004 in the former library on the

edge of Fountain City Park. It is now a place where artists can come and share their work. “It is a peaceful place to think,” said Shopper News photographer Ruth White of the viewing areas set up with comfortable sofas and chairs. “The center is a way to encourage artists and give them a venue to sell their stuff,” said publisher Sandra Clark. Williams said it takes

five fundraisersa year to keep the art center open. In addition to exhibiting art of both local artists and students, FCAC hosts musicians, holds classes for both children and adults, and houses the Parkside Open Door Gallery, where artists can sell their wares while helping the center in the process.

The awareness ribbon By Joshua Mode When I walked into the lovely building called the Fountain City Art Center, I was stunned at all the beautiful paintings. I was also stunned that it was not just a place to showcase art; it was also a learning center for students who wanted to improve their art skills. Later when we got to walk around to see the art, I studied each piece to see which one spoke to me the most. The art was extravagant, big and small, plus sculptures and even jewelry, but

none really told a story. So I searched for something that did. Later, out of the corner of my eye, I saw a piece of artwork at the edge of the room. It was a pink metal sculpture in the shape of an awareness ribbon, so I wondered what story this might have. Maybe the artist had suffered a heartbreaking loss, sadness or struggle. The artist was Frank Harvey, and I couldn’t help but wonder if he had lost someone to breast cancer. As I walked away, I saw yet another of his works

that was also an awareness ribbon, but this one was blue instead of pink. So now I not only see that this artist might have witnessed someone get diagnosed with breast cancer, but also prostate cancer. And as I felt the pain through the art, I can only hope that the artist made this piece to salute those who have suffered instead of a personal piece about what he went through. And that is what I found as my “speaking” art piece at the Fountain City Art Center.

Eric “T-Bone” Gusky let the interns hear the magic of mixing sound for commercials, and how the soundtrack for a script can make a world of difference. Echoing Jake Mabe’s thoughts from earlier in the day, Gusky said he would rather do what he loved than make a fortune doing something he didn’t. “Just don’t take my picture,” he said. The trip to Cumulus wouldn’t have been complete without stopping by the Phil Show with legendary disc jockey Phil Williams at the mic. The interns went live on the radio, but only after texting parents, grandparents and friends to drum up a crowd, adding numbers to the Phil Show’s ratings. Gibson Calfee remembers Williams saying his first job was in auto repair but he’s been in radio for 30 years. “He wanted to play his band on the radio, and that’s why he chose his job,” said Gibson. Most of the interns remembered Williams saying his favorite story is the “Idiot of the Day.” On our way back home, we tuned in the Phil Show. Sure enough, he was reading “Idiot of the Day,” this time about a family that raised a baby deer for five years and then had to release it to the wild after a neighbor complained. “Two words,” said Phil. “Petting Zoo.” Lindsey Sanders also quoted Williams as saying his favorite part of his job “is payday and lunch.” Williams snookered Lindsey when she asked how long he had worked in radio. “I was hired by a gentleman named Marconi,” said Phil. The interns seriously wrote the quote into their reporters pads. Marconi is generally credited with inventing radio, back in the late 1800s. Paul Brooks fell victim to Williams’ off-beat humor. When Paul said he’s in training for the ministry, Phil asked when he first felt God’s call. “I was in 4th grade,” said Paul. Then he added, “but like Jonah, I ran away from God.” “You were swallowed by a whale!” asked Phil.

Undeterred, Paul kept talking in his best preacher’s voice. He commandeered Williams’ microphone for about a minute of testimony. Next week … The interns will “Walk on the East Side” with visits to the Beck Cultural Center and the new aviary at Knoxville Zoo, making time for lunch at Chandler’s on Magnolia.

What if you were the one to decide what stories were shared on the radio? That’s exactly what Cumulus Knoxville news director Catherine Howell does. Howell uses police scanners along with other sources to learn about stories going on locally and nationally to broadcast what people want to hear. She says she wants to alert people of things going on in their community that could affect them and future generations. Howell also says that she enjoys taking things that are mildly interesting and finding the details that stick out. She has been working as a news director for eight years.

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers

Technology is big boost for Corryton By Jake Mabe Emma Patterson was in her classroom when she heard the news. Luke Warwick was sick at home, but the news made him feel a whole lot better. Principal Jamie Snyder was watching the live feed of the results with 5th grade students. “I think I felt the school shake,” Snyder says. The school is Corryton Elementary. And the news was that the school had successfully applied through the School Technology Challenge to be one of 11 Knox County schools that will receive a 1:1 wireless connection and personal learning devices, which will be piloted during the 2013-14 school year. Emma, 9, is a rising 4th-grader. Luke, 10, is a rising 5th-grader. Both helped deliver Corryton’s sales pitch to the committee that decided which schools would receive the technology. “They were much calmer than the adults that were presenting,” Snyder says. “It was a lot of hard work. We had to put that presentation together in two days. And these folks,” she said, pointing to Emma and Luke, “helped us with their hard work.” Luke talked about a robotics grant that the school had received and said the robot helped him and his classmates learn about geometry and science. “We had to build the robot, so we really had to follow the instructions,” Luke says. Emma told the committee why she thought the school needed the technology. “We’re already using it at home for entertainment. We can use it for learning.” “It’s a different way to learn and a fun way to learn,” Luke says. “It will ultimately allow us to connect learning in a very different way for kids,” Snyder says. “The standards we are teaching won’t change, but the way we present the learning will change.” Snyder adds that children learn in different ways. Some enjoy flipping pages in a book. Others like the quick pace of an ebook. The new technology will allow teachers to tailor instruction to each student’s individual needs. “We can do both!” Luke said. Snyder and other Corryton Elementary staff members attended a weeklong professional development initiative at Bearden High School last week. “This whole week has been, ‘How do we do it?’ Our kids know more than we do. We have to figure out how to blend it (into the curriculum) and what that looks like as a presentation in front of the classroom. We’re going to be learning side by side. The kids

Corryton Elementary School rising 5th-grader Luke Warwick, principal Jamie Snyder and rising 4th-grader Emma Patterson work on a couple of e-devices. Corryton is one of 11 Knox County schools chosen through the School Technology Challenge to pilot new technology. Snyder and other Corryton staff members attended a week-long professional development initiative at Bearden High last week. Luke and Emma helped deliver the school’s sales pitch during the Challenge earlier this year. Photos by Jake Mabe will tell us what they need and we can show them the pathways to make that happen.” Snyder says as an administrator she was excited last week to watch how excited her teachers became during the training sessions. “These folks are amazing. They are willing to take on anything that comes their way.” Last week’s session focused on the philosophy and theory of teaching through connectivity, Snyder said. “At a follow-up in late July/early August, we will hopefully know what (electronic) device has been selected and figure out how to make it work in the classroom.” Snyder said participants got a preview last week. “They showed us one whole day of a paradigm change and what it’s going to feel like because it is new. And we’re going to make mistakes. That’s

Emma Patterson shows her technological skills on an iPad.

OK. We’ll learn from our mistakes and move forward.” She says it’s particularly exciting for a small school like Corryton to receive not only the new technology, but two full-time staff positions as well. “We’re a school with 200 kids. We don’t get full-time positions other than our regular faculty. So to get a

Knox County Council PTA

tech position and a (TPACK coach), that’s worth its weight in gold for us as a community and as a school.” Snyder says the school will continue to communicate with parents through phone calls, newsletters and the school website. “But we’re also going to be tweeting at @corrytonelem. And we’ll be honest. We’ll post our mistakes.”

The stories behind the stones Jerry Lyons received an etery in Neupre, Belgium. “They are doing what email last month that he the purpose of my book will never forget. was,” Lyons says, “keeping alive the memories of these young men.” The book is available at

Jake Mabe MY TWO CENTS Lyons, a retired U.S. Army colonel and Halls resident, wrote a book in 2010 called “If These Stones Could Talk.” It tells the stories of American World War II veterans who are buried overseas. Joe Lippi, whose father, Pvt. Joseph T. Lippi, is featured in Lyons’ book, told Lyons about the 3rd grade class at St. Paul Institute in Belgium, which adopted his father’s grave several years ago. Joe Lippi has also become friends with the school’s principal, Michel Lorquet, who emphasizes to his students the sacrifices made by Americans buried in the cemeteries in their country. “They are remembering the stories behind those stones,” Lyons says. They adopt graves, place flowers there on the veterans’ birthdays and correspond with any living relatives.” Lyons sent Lorquet a copy of his book for the St. Paul Institute’s library. On May 29, he received an email from Lorquet. “(Your book) is a very precious gift I transfer to my pupils,” Lorquet wrote. “If we are free living, it’s with the help of your people, which have made the most important sacrifice, and even for too great a number, the ultimate one.” Lorquet signed the email, “A simple free Belgian citizen.” He also included a photo of his daughter Efia, 5, at the grave she adopted belonging to PFC William A. Boldt of Minnesota, who was killed on Nov. 23, 1944, and is buried at the Ardennes American Cem-

Learning together, ‘Side/By/Side’

A spark ignited into an inferno the moment Halls High School student Taylor Eldreth began working with Fountain City artist Jean Hess. Taylor had studied piano and guitar at The Community School of the Arts and began taking art classes in middle school. As a young child, she would spend hours creating chalk art in the driveway or even on the side of her house. “But it wasn’t until Side/ By/Side with Jean that I really began to love it,” she says. Side/By/Side is a visual arts apprentice program in which Community School of the Arts students are paired with professional artists. The program culminates with an art exhibition at Bennett Galleries, where the students’ and artists’ works are displayed together. The artwork is also sold during a silent auction, which benefits the school. Taylor and Jean worked

Fountain City artist Jean Hess and Halls High School senior Taylor Eldreth work on their artwork as part of the Community School of the Arts’ Side/By/Side apprentice program, in which students work alongside professional artists. Their work was Efia Lorquet, 5, stands at the grave of PFC William A. Boldt, displayed and auctioned at Bennett Galleries last Friday. which she has adopted in Belgium. Photo submitted together last year and say they are two peas in a pod. During the Side/By/Side program, they work to-

gether for three hours or cuss their work. Jean has done everyso at least once a week and then often go to Hunter’s thing from realistic sketchDeli in Halls to eat and dis- es to “really abstract stuff.” Taylor says she’s good with “people and faces” and has started painting boats as well. She has been particularly influenced by the work of J.M.W. Turner. “It’s an amazing opportunity,” Taylor says. “I felt very accomplished my first year. It’s also inspired me a lot in my work at Halls High (with art teacher Jerry Lewis). In the classroom setting, you don’t get a lot of personal time.

“It’s also inspired me to work by myself, on my own. I never thought I could paint.” Taylor plans to major in chemistry or chemical engineering at UT but says she will most likely apply her art to science, perhaps as a scientific illustrator. Jean says the program energizes her. “I’m alone a big part of the time. This gets me with other people and I see how another person works. It just makes me want to get back at it (my art).” Visit Jake Mabe at

fifth consecutive month of 2013, the local real estate market boasted encoura g i n g numbers. Witt For the month that ended on May 31, there were 918 property transfers recorded in Knox County. That number bested the recordings from both April and last May by some 70 transactions. The aggregate value of land sold during the month also increased appreciably, as $212 million worth of property was transferred. That was over $50 million more than the total value of property sold during

April. In May of 2012, total land sales came in at about $175 million. Mortgage lending fell about $6 million short of the totals from last month at approximately $336 million. That was still considerably more that the amount of money loaned against real estate in May of last year, when about $294 million was borrowed in mortgages and refinances. The most noteworthy transfer of the month was the sale of the Riverview Tower at 900 South Gay Street. The property sold to Hertz Knoxville One LLC for $24 million. On the mortgage lending side, the largest loan recorded was for $21 million secured by JP Morgan Chase Bank to finance the purchase of the Riverview Tower.

‘Beach-front property’ in Powell By Cindy Taylor Just over the train tracks on Beaver Creek Drive is something you don’t see every day in East Tennessee – a full-on beach complete with a Tiki bar. It all started when Carole Chaffins asked her son, “What are you going to do with that big hole in the front yard?” If you are Bill Chaffins Jr. you turn that hole, and then the entire front yard, into a beach. “The beach wasn’t here, so I had to make it,” said Bill as he whipped up a batch of barracuda margaritas. “We have a lot of fun with strangers just dropping in.” Chaffins says the challenge was being able to make the beach look like it should be there. He started with a small area and a couple of chairs. Then, he made a trip to the beach for the dune fence, added banana and palm trees, and the construction grew from there. He and his family have been working on the property both indoors and out for more than a year. Some of the décor has come from as far away as Australia and Fiji. Chaffins and his wife, Barbara, got married on their private beach, but it was much smaller. The wedding at the Tiki bar went long into the evening with guests who were having too much fun to leave.

‘Beach-front property’

From page 1

Barbara’s daughter, Becky Ragan, is home on leave from the U.S. Navy for a few days. She says her military friends don’t believe her when she tells them about home. “I always have to show them pictures to prove it,” she said. The bar is equipped with everything the family needs to party through the day and into the night. There is a cooktop, two fridges, a sink, a freezer, a searing burner and grill and of course, a stereo. Beach and retro décor abound in every corner and exotic plants cover the grounds. More than five tons of sand runs from one end of the beach to the other with a few tons of river rock thrown in. “We grill out almost every day here in the Tiki bar,” said Bill. “We love it when people drive by and shout ‘hello.’ A lot of them stop to take pictures and end up staying a bit. Any time we call and say we’re grilling fish tacos, the neighbors are quick to come over. Life is very laid-back here.” The entire yard is a work in progress. The interior of the home has been completely redone as well. “It is a never-ending project,” said Barbara. Bill says he can play in the mountains in the backyard and then walk around front to rest on the beach. It is truly the best of both worlds. But how often does a train come by? Lounging at the Tiki bar with a margarita in hand, banana and palm trees swaying, and the sounds of Jimmy Buffett wafting on the breeze, does it really matter?

The Chaffins enjoy the shade and statuary of the back yard. The sculpture pictured was uncovered in a field in Galveston, Texas.

A sign at the road welcomes visitors to Beaver Bay Beach.

The beach retreat started with only a few chairs and a little sand. Photos by Cindy Taylor A crocodile stands guard at the gate to the beach.

Tips for keeping food safe and delicious is not likely to enhance safety.

coolers with freezer gel packs. Food needs to be stored at 40 F or colder to reduce the risk of pathogen growth, so limit the number of times you open the cooler. Never allow food to sit for more than two hours at temperatures below 90 F, and no more than an hour when temperatures exceed 90 F. Throw away food that’s been sitting out too long. Securely package raw meat, seafood and poultry to ensure the juices don’t contami-

Beverages and perishable foods should travel in separate containers and coolers, especially if you’ll be transporting raw meat. When it’s time to go home, don’t reuse packaging material that has touched raw meats or meat juices. Make sure perishable leftovers stay cold on the trip home.

If you’re in your 40s

Years of sun exposure can leave your skin with noticeable lines, blotchiness or dryness. ■ Limit exposure: Decreasing sun exposure is the best way to prevent skin cancer. ■ Moisturize regularly: While moisturizers won’t slow down the aging process, they can help soothe increasingly raw or irritated skin and can help strengthen collagen. ■ Add a little pep: Skin creams with peptides (small chains of protein molecules) can stimulate collagen and plump sagging skin.

If you’re 50-plus

For people age 50 and older, it’s critical to be aware of changes in your skin that may reflect the status of its health. ■ Self check: Monitor changes in your skin and look out for persistent pink, scaly patches and red or

black pearly spots or bumps – these can sometimes be indicators of skin cancer. ■ See a dermatologist: By age 50, everyone should have a total body skin check to screen for skin cancer. ■ Continue good habits: Sunscreen is still an absolute must for this age range, and moisturizers and hydration are even more important than ever. No matter what your age, everyone feels most confident when their skin is its healthiest. Visit your doctor or take advantage of free counsel from pharmacists and local health screenings. For example, Sam’s Club hosts health screenings every month which are free and available to the public. For a full schedule of Sam’s Club screenings through October, visit This season, take action to prevent and minimize skin damage, so your skin is nourished, protected and healthy for many summers to come. – BPT
