New job for Tony Norman By Betty Bean James McMillan has been a high-profile, persistent critic of the way local government handles stormwater runoff issues, both city and county. Rarely has he doled out compliments. Last week, the Shannondale farmer broke form when he heard that Knox County has hired Tony Norman to a $28,000 per year part-time position as an NPDES (National Pollutant Discharge Elimination System) coordinator. “Tony will add a needed degree of honesty and integrity to Knox County’s engineering department, something they have had a very limited supply of, till now,” said McMillan. Norman started work Nov. 3, two months after completing two terms on County Commission, where he championed teachers who have been protesting Superintendent James McIntyre’s reform agenda.

As a commissioner, he spent more than three years chairTony Norman ing the controversial Joint City/County Task Force on Ridge, Slope and Hillside Development and Protection that developed new regulations to curb environmental damage done by developers. Predictably, the hire has raised eyebrows. Commissioner Sam McKenzie expressed his displeasure at a meeting last week, and there was grumbling that the former commission chair, who is widely expected to be a candidate for school board in 2016, is being “rewarded” for his persis-

The Urgent Care Center will be open 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. seven days a week, 363 days a year and staffed with board-certified physicians every day.

tent opposition to McIntyre’s policies, an allegation that Engineering and Public Works Director Dwight Van de Vate said is unwarranted. “Tony has a sound science background. He has a background in environmental policy and a solid general understanding of the science behind what we are responsible for doing in stormwater,” Van de Vate said. “He has good communication skills – specifically, the ability to write. Keeping dynamic, relevant, current web content is important. Many folks with engineering backgrounds, communication is not their forte. “Tony is a skilled public speaker with the ability to articulate complicated concepts clearly. He’ll be talking to elected officials. He will look at how peer jurisdictions manage their bonds and letters of credit and see if we can incorporate some of their practices. Not everybody can make those calls

effectively and ask the right questions. I’m confident Tony will excel with assignments like this, and we’ve started already.” He also said there are things Norman won’t be doing: “He won’t be involved in education outreach that involves Knox County Schools. He won’t be involved in regulation of the construction trades. I’ve got eight folks who do that very well. Our bench is deep.” Norman said he’s not surprised that some have criticized his hiring. “I’ve known these people (in county engineering) for 20 years,” he said. “I spent 30 years in water quality – it’s like my calling – where my heart is.” Then he laughed and said: “I don’t want to go back into teaching. I don’t think I’d last a week (back in the school system). So when this came open, I said yeah, and really think my resume ought to be able to withstand (criticism).”

ASTYM treatment gets nurse back on her feet As a home health nurse for Covenant Health, Shawn Peterson relies on being able to stand for hours, move easily to assist patients and drive long distances. “I have to have my feet to do my job,” she said. “But I could barely even walk.” After struggling with foot, ankle and calf pain for months, Peterson was diagnosed with plantar fasciitis in both feet. The condition is caused by an increase in tension in the arch of the foot, usually due to physical activity or wearing unsupportive shoes. The arch is supported by the plantar fascia tissue, which can tear and send sharp pains through the foot and up into shins and calves. People who work on their feet like Peterson are at a higher risk to contract the condition. “Shawn had a chronic injury for more than a year,” Jerrod Adams, Parkwest physical therapist, said. “She tried different treatments to resolve it, but nothing worked.” During one physical therapy appointment, Adams spoke to Peterson about ASTYM, in which he and another Parkwest Therapy Center staff member are certified. The treatment is used to address a wide variety of diagnoses, including shin splints, shoulder pain and plantar fasciitis. “I read all about it and saw that professional athletes use it, so I wanted to try it,” Peterson said. “I just wanted to get better, whatever it took.” Twice a week for four weeks, Peterson’s physical therapy stretches and strengthening were supplemented by the ASTYM Sys-

What can ASTYM treat? Damaged scar tissue can result from trauma, surgery, repetitive strain and immobilization. By addressing the soft tissue that has become dysfunctional, ASTYM can help rebuild it and prevent further injury. The most common diagnoses that can benefit from ASTYM treatment are:

Now the pain is gone.

Six tips for proper shoe fit Wearing old or unsupportive shoes can cause issues in your feet, calves, knees and hips. By considering the following tips when you go shoe shopping, you may be able to limit the likelihood of injuries and conditions like plantar fasciitis. 1. Shop late in the day. You may not notice, but your feet are actually larger later in the day. Make sure to shop in the afternoon or evening to get shoes that will fit you all day long. 2. Measure your feet. Even if you’ve always been a size 8, have a sales associate measure your feet to confirm your size. Shoe size changes along with weight and age. 3. Flex the shoe. The bottom of your shoe should flex at the ball of the foot, not in the middle. 4. Choose the right shoe for your activity level. Walkers need a flat heel because they land on their heels. Runners

land mid-foot and require the extra stability and support of a flared heel. 5. Don’t rely on “breaking in” your shoes. Shoes should be comfortable when you buy them. Uncomfortable shoes can cause you to change your gait and possibly lead to injury. 6. Take your old shoes with you. Wear patterns of your old shoes can help the sales associate determine the proper shoe for your stride. If you are already experiencing foot or leg pain, make an appointment at the Parkwest Therapy Center to speak with a physical therapist. The staff can help you rehabilitate your injuries and prevent them in the future. They can also provide advice and exercises to increase strength, correct gait and maintain a healthy lifestyle without the risk of injury.

By Ruth White Heiskell seniors know how to put “thank you” into action. The group honored their veterans at the monthly meeting with an honor walk. Participants lined the hallway at the Heiskel Senior Center and waved flags and signs and clapped as the veterans entered the fellowship hall. Buzz Buswell, director of veterans and senior services for Knox County, spoke briefly with the group and encouraged veterans and family members to visit the office of veterans affairs on Central Avenue Pike (in the old Sears building) if they have any issues. The office is open 7:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Monday through Friday and is staffed with veterans ready to assist. The next meeting will be Thursday, Dec. 11, and will feature a gift exchange and lunch for everyone. If interested in exchanging gifts, bring a $5 item, wrapped with a tag for a man or woman, to the meeting. The fun begins at 11 a.m. and will be followed by lunch. Additionally, anyone interested may bring items for the Totes of Love for school children in the Powell area to the December meeting. Items most needed at this time are shampoo and soap.

Don’t tell me how the story ends In the front row of my music file is a Ronnie Milsap recording of a Kris Kristofferson song, “Please Don’t Tell Me How the Story Ends.” It popped up, unsolicited, when I thought of Jacob Gilliam and his final home appearance on behalf of Tennessee football. I know enough. I don’t need to know the ending. Maybe Jacob will become a coach or a business leader. He is a winning warrior. I believe he will be successful at something. I hope he is happy. I hope he can walk. Nothing like Jacob Gilliam has happened in my most-of-a-lifetime monitoring of the Volunteers. Other walk-ons have exceeded expectations, earned scholarships, achieved starting status. Nick Reveiz and a few others became captains. Maybe one beat out a junior college all-American and took his job, but I don’t remember that. I’m almost certain nobody ever played offensive tackle on one good leg and a torn knee ligament in the other. That Jacob wanted to try was stunning. It said his

Marvin West

love of football went beyond lip service, a bit deeper than touching the motivational sign on the way from the dressing room to the playing field and repeating the promise, “I will give my all for Tennessee.” It said he cared more for the team than himself. Ordinary people, when damaged, hobble off to a hospital and hope an orthopedic magician can make necessary repairs. Jacob skipped the surgery and started rehabilitation as soon as the swelling went down. It may have hurt. That Jacob made it back was a shock. He showed up on the sidelines at practice. I mistook that for loyalty. He attended meetings, keeping up with instruction. Suddenly, he was involved in limited workouts. He ran slowly. He never was a speedster. He is 6-4 and 290. Half of that is heart.

That he recovered enough to reclaim the starting job was amazing. I considered the possibility that Butch Jones has a sentimental streak and was simply rewarding courage and determination. That wasn’t it. The offensive line was better with Jacob Gilliam (and Joshua Dobbs). Don’t bother with how this story ends. It is already better than most movie plots. This guy was good at Farragut High. He had scholarship offers to smaller colleges. He wanted to go to Tennessee. He was thrilled when 2009 line coach James Cregg invited him over for conversation. Alas, when Gilliam arrived, there was no greeting. Cregg was gone – with Lane Kiffin to Southern Cal. A very nice Derek Dooley said Gilliam could walk on. He was a redshirt in 2010. Most of 2011 was lost to a shoulder injury. In 2012, he got in for two plays at the end of the Kentucky game. He said that was very meaningful. I said he had outlasted Dooley. Gilliam was second team last season, behind Tiny Richardson. He played briefly in two blowout losses.

This spring, day after day, he had to prove he was capable. He beat out Dontavius Blair, 6-8 and 313, the handpicked replacement for Richardson. Astounding what effort and smarts and fierce determination can do. Gilliam C oach Jones awarded a scholarship. Much earlier Jacob had earned the respect of teammates. He started the season opener against Utah State. He suffered the torn ACL. “It’s very, very unfortunate,” Butch Jones said. “I feel for him … I love him to death.” Cruel conclusion? The end? Not exactly. Cheering is not permitted in the press box, under threat of expulsion, but when Jacob Gilliam jogs onto Shields-Watkins Field for the last time, I’m going to risk it. Yea! Quietly. Nothing like this has happened in my time. Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is westwest6@netzero.com.

Health is more than absence of disease, says Buchanan By Wendy Smith Some of the best work of the Knox County Health Department happens outside the walls of the its three facilities, says Director Martha Buchanan. Most people think of vaccinations or treatment of STDs when they think of the health department. But a quick browse through the KCHD website reveals an array of services, from a school dental program to tips on how to keep well water safe. Buchanan is most proud of the way the organization works within the community. Through recent efforts, the health department has improved the city’s walkability, helped people grow their own fruits and vegetables, and fostered a sense of community. “We’re empowering people so they know they have a voice in their own health.” She was a family-practice doctor for seven years before joining the KCHD 11 years ago. She has been director for four years. KCHD employs 250 and has a total budget of $25 million. Local government provides 75 percent of funding, and the remaining 25 percent comes from federal and state government and grants. The health department includes talented, passionate staff who go into the community to develop relationships and building trust, allowing them to gauge a neighborhood’s health needs, like playgrounds or safe places to walk. Health is about more

One of the roles of the health department is to think through the unthinkable, like flu pandemics or an outbreak of Ebola. Strategies are in place for such circumstances, but prevention is the primary objective. In the case of Ebola, the county gets information Dr. Martha Buchanan speaks from Homeland Security to a civic club.

They It’s a balancing act between

privacy and public concern, she says. It’s important to err on the side of caution, but if someone has no symptoms, there is no risk of infection. The health challenges in Knox County are the same as those across the state. Obesity is one. Another is making sure that everyone, from inner-city families to wealthy suburbanites, can be healthy if they choose to be. It’s a problem that can only be addressed through engagement, which requires reaching out to decision-makers as well as the community. We’re changing how we view healthcare, and everyone needs to be better informed, Buchanan says. “There’s a learning curve there.”

At-large commissioners Brantley and Bob Thomas plan to visit each area of Knox County to hear citizens’ concerns and will address them on the radio the next morning.

Next month, the duo will visit North Knox County. Photo by S. Barrett

Prayer for Jacob By Marvin West Behind Jacob Gilliam’s unlikely comeback from a torn anterior cruciate ligament in his left knee are deep family faith and hours and hours of prayer. Nathan Gilliam, Farragut High football senior, believed it when his older brother declared his Tennessee career was not finished. “I actually thought he would make it back,” said Nathan. “We prayed so much for that.” Three weeks after the injury, Jacob returned to the Tennessee practice field. “I remember thinking, ‘Wow!’ ” said Nathan. Vol line coach Don Mahoney had other thoughts – about work ethic, passion and desire. “This really is who he is and what he stands for, and it’s just hard work and tremendous character … it’s not a surprise.” Forty-nine days after

the injury, Jacob played against Ole Miss. A week later he regained a starting job. “I am so proud of him,” said Nathan Gilliam. He said Jacob’s recovery “feels like a miracle.” The Gilliam family – parents David and Michelle, their three football gladiators (Alex is the baby brother) and a very special grandmother – relied on their faith. Honey Rock Victorious Church was the focal point. The Gilliams met with the worship leader and his family every Thursday for intensive prayer. Nathan tells of “the laying on of hands.” Jacob believes those prayers and support from hundreds of others led to healing. He says he has been blessed with strength and stability in the knee. He says there has been very little pain. Teammates are in awe. “Dude’s tough,” said tailback Jalen Hurd.

Thunder Road revisited I recently voted in Farragut’s early voting, and one of the controversial issues this year is allowing wine to be sold in Farragut’s grocery stores. This issue reminded me of a similar referendum in 1961 when Knox County voted to legalize whiskey sales in package stores and, and finally, liquor by the drink in 1972. Referenda to legalize whiskey sales in Knox County date to 1941, and the proposal was placed on the ballot five times during that 20-year period until it was finally approved. The vote brought together two interest groups that would normally oppose each other; most Christian ministers opposed legalization based on “moral issues,” and area bootleggers opposed it for economic issues. But the real losers when the vote carried were the whiskey runners. Many kids considered these fearless drivers to be heroes, and for rural mountain boys, it was an occupation that could quickly lift them out of poverty. Of course, one such driver’s adventures were the subject of the 1958 movie “Thunder Road” starring Robert Mitchum, and I dare say there were few teenagers who missed seeing this flick because it involved “souped up” Fords that most kids dreamed of owning. But the real “Thunder

Road” that spurred the beginning of NASCAR racing occurred in 1954 when I was a sophomore in high school, and one of my classmates was witness to the event. John Fitzgerald related the story many times, and many who have written about the famous crash consider John’s account the most credible. John had stopped to air up his bicycle tires when he became aware of a crash just down the road. He could see a fire and knew something big had happened. Police officers related the story to him. The driver was well known to authorities, who had nicknamed him Tweedle O’Twill. There had been two roadblocks set for the elusive driver. Since the authorities were not sure which road he would take – Papermill or Kingston Pike – the first roadblock was set up just a few hundred yards west of the intersection. The second roadblock was at the present-day Gallery shopping center. Through his driving skills and some luck, he To next page

RIP SAT-10, again Looks like the SAT-10 exam, defunct since Nov. 3, is going to stay defunct, despite the best efforts of Superintendent James McIntyre’s administration and its allies.

Betty Bean SAT-10 is the most disliked of the many assessments administered by Knox County Schools, primarily because of the tender age of the students to whom it is given – kindergarteners through secondgraders. It is not state-required, and its abolition became a priority for the two new board members who had firsthand experience with

Christmas is only five weeks away, and politicians everywhere are writing letters to Santa. Dear Santa: Please bring us 60 votes in the U.S. Senate. We’d also like some new ideas. On second thought, make that any ideas. We hope you like the latest redistricting map that incorporates the North Pole into Texas’ 17th Congressional District. Enclosed you will find several hundred voter registration applications for your elves. P.S. Love the red suit! – Republican Party Dear Santa Claus: Our supply of crying towels is dwindling, so please throw some on your sleigh for us. We urgently need several dozen Bill Clinton clones as well as backbones for our candidates in the next midterm election cycle. This letter is being handdelivered by a representative of the UEW (United Elves of the World) who will hand out union-member ap-

its effects – Amber Rountree, an elementary school librarian who proctored the exams, and kindergarten teacher Patti Bounds. Rountree pushed the board to vote at a special called meeting the night before the election when Tracie Sanger (who was perceived to be a potential McIntyre ally based on a strong endorsement from Indya Kincannon) was elected. The vote came over the objections of McIntyre’s administrators and the proMcIntyre board members and ended up 6-3 with vice chair Doug Harris saying he voted for ending the test so he could bring it up again at a more propitious time in the future. Within days of the election, KCS Accountability Officer Nakia Towns announced that teachers were letting her know they

were afraid their evaluation scores would suffer without the SAT-10 numbers, and she compiled numbers confirming their worst fears. This would be one of Towns’ last chores for Knox County before the announcement that she had taken a job as an assistant to state Commissioner of Education Kevin Huffman, who shortly thereafter announced that he, too, was leaving, causing speculation among some that McIntyre would soon be joining Towns in Nashville as Huffman’s replacement (smart money was on former state Sen. Jamie Woodson, head of Bill Frist’s education think tank, SCORE). On Nov. 5, Dogwood Elementary School principal Lana Shelton-Lowe sent her teachers an email warning them of possible negative impacts of ending SAT-10.

Thunder Road was able to get around the first roadblock and probably thought he was in the clear, but when he saw the second block, he knew this one would be much harder to break. The road and grade have been altered since the early ’50s, when a steep red clay bank was on the south side of the Pike. His intent was to jump a ditch, climb the bank and somehow bring his car back to the road past the roadblock. But jumping the bank broke the tie-rods on his car, making it impossible to steer. The car careened across the road and

On Nov. 6, Mooreland Heights Elementary School principal Roy Miller sent a similar email to a group of teachers warning them of the consequences of not having SAT-10 numbers to enhance their scores. On Nov. 10, board member Karen Carson, McIntyre’s strongest board ally, shot off an email to board chair Mike McMillan objecting to the Nov. 3 vote because she believed the motion on the floor was broader than the meeting notice and therefore fatally flawed – “Please let me know when I can expect resolution to this unfortunate error in procedure.” Uh, maybe never? Meanwhile, Sanger told Channel 10’s Mike Donila that she won’t vote to reinstate SAT-10. Without Sanger’s vote, there won’t be a majority willing to reinstate the controversial testing of Knox County’s youngest students.

My motto, “Make ’em squeal,” fits perfectly with a screenplay I’ve written. “Alien Deliverance” is sure to be a blockbuster. With the tagline, “In space, no one can hear you squeal,” how can it lose? Sigourney Weaver will jump at the part! Merry Christmas from your Iowa elf! – U.S. Sen. Jodi Ernst Dear Santa: What’s up? Seems like all my rowdy friends have been termlimited, and I’m next. How about giving that Duncan fellow a nudge toward the door? It’s time for Tim in 2018! – Mayor Tim Burchett Dear Santa Claus: My family has always respected your work, but I’ve been hearing troubling rumors. Is it true the elves are forming a union and that you’re expanding Medicaid to the North Pole? Say it isn’t so, Santa! – Gov. Bill Haslam

From previous page ran through a chain-link fence surrounding an electrical substation. Sparks from the substation ignited the broken whiskey bottles, creating an inferno. And as the song says: “The devil got the moonshine and the mountain boy that day.” During my youth, Dixie Lee Junction was a favorite gathering spot after a football game. And part of the entertainment was watching whiskey haulers come through at high speeds. A widely-known bootlegger owned a fleet of black Mercurys. The cars had exhaust headers that could be

heard several miles down U.S. Highway 70. Running out of Nashville, they always ran four or five together and maybe only one or two actually contained bottled whiskey. The other cars were used as decoys or to block police cars so the cars with the whiskey could get away. The moonshine usually came out of North Carolina or Kentucky, while the bottled whiskey came from Nashville or Bristol, Va. The border between Tennessee and Virginia runs through Bristol, but whiskey was legal in Virginia and illegal in Tennessee. So the bootleg-

ger could simply buy whiskey by the case in Virginia and deliver it to Tennessee. Today, diners can enjoy cocktails at most restaurants. I suspect the younger generation would find it amusing that liquor was so hard to get not so long ago. Private clubs often sold whiskey at high prices. Some restaurants allowed you to bring your own bottle but supplied expensive setups. And I bet the younger generation would find it even more amusing that 60 years ago, people risked their lives to deliver whiskey to markets that are now served by distributing vendors.

WATE makes dumb mistake on Patterson WATE’s decision not to renew its contract with popular longtime news anchor Gene Patterson has to be one of the dumber mistakes any television station could make.

Victor Ashe

WATE is now owned by Media General, which has its corporate office in Richmond, Va. WATE ratings are down, so their solution is to terminate the most popular newscaster they have. This shows the corporate office in Richmond is clueless about its Knoxville market. If your ratings are down why do you cut costs by letting one of your top newscasters go? Their ratings are only likely to sink further. No doubt they will hire someone under 35 and pay him/her half of what Patterson was paid and think the ratings will increase. Think again. WATE has no idea (or does not care) how unhappy its audience is. Also think about a corporation that makes a valued employee depart right at Christmastime. Again, insensitive and clueless. So much for the Christmas spirit. ■ State Rep. Rick Womick has challenged Speaker Beth Harwell for the GOP nomination for House Speaker to be decided by the GOP caucus in December. Womick represents the anti-Haslam faction of the House GOP caucus. This writer contacted all six Knox Republican lawmakers as to whom they planned on supporting at the December caucus. With the exception of Bill Dunn, all said they were voting for Harwell. They are Harry Brooks, Ryan Haynes, Eddie Smith, Martin Daniel and Roger Kane. Dunn said he simply did not disclose his vote. However, he added that he thought Harwell had done an excellent job as speaker and thought she would be

re-elected. That is Dunn’s way of saying (without saying) that he is for Harwell. ■ Gloria Johnson should not be counted out as a future candidate just because she lost the state representative race. Her loss actually occurred in two precincts outside the city at South-Doyle and Mount Olive, whereas she carried the city portion of her district by 900 votes. She could easily be a viable candidate for City Council in the November 2015 city elections. The four council seats up are the three at-large seats, held by George Wallace, Finbarr Saunders and Marshall Stair, or the district seat held by Mark Campen. Campen has the lowest profile of the four incumbents and had no opponent in the last election. If she ran for the Campen council seat, she would be a very strong contender. However, Johnson wants to be chair of the state Democratic Party, but that would not prevent her from serving on City Council, which currently only has one woman, Brenda Palmer, who is term limited in 2017. She is not alone in wanting the state position. Former U.S. Senate candidate Terry Adams is mentioned along with Linda Sherrill, who opposed U.S. Rep. Scott DesJarlais on Nov. 4. ■ One consequence of the Johnson defeat may be that Tammy Kaousias leaves the Knox County Election Commission in April. The current law provides that the Democratic lawmakers from Knoxville recommend the two Democratic election commissioners. When Joe Armstrong and Johnson were the two lawmakers, they simply picked one each, and Kaousias was the Johnson choice. With Johnson gone, Armstrong will get to recommend both positions. He is free to choose Kaousias again, or he might choose someone else as it is totally his choice. ■ Tony Hernandez, who covers Knoxville city issues for the News Sentinel, is departing for Oregon. He will be missed.

Start shining Indeed, you are my lamp, O Lord, the Lord lightens my darkness. (2 Samuel 22: 29 NRSV) To double day, and cut in half the dark. (“Birches,” Robert Frost) He was my mentor in all things United Methodist, the pastor who taught me Cross Currents the history of John Wesley’s movement.

Crying babies David had Goliath. Moses had Pharaoh. Elijah had Ahab. And preachers have crying babies. OK, maybee hthe battle between preachat ers and crying babies at worship services doesn’t ’t quite rise to the level off those other conflicts, but sometimes preachers, as well as the congregation, can lose perspective. I don’t know of a preacher who hasn’t had a few sermons ruined by one of these precious little bundles of piercing screams or by a

Steve Higginbotham fidgeting 3-year-old. But please consider the following. Sometime, take a very hard chair that is too big for your feet to touch the floor and sit there for an hour. During this hour, do not look side to side or

old. It is the kind of lamp that would have been used in every home in the Middle East in biblical times. It is small, fitting easily in the palm of my hand. It has a decorative design around the opening where the oil would be poured into it. I, of course, asked him if I could put oil and a wick in it and light it. (I may have mentioned in this space my love of candles!) He was aghast, and he hastened to instruct me that it was clay, after all, and because it had not been used in centuries, it would disintegrate if I put oil in it. So, it has sat on a shelf

in my house for almost 40 years, simply as a beloved keepsake, not serving its intended purpose, not providing light for anyone. It could, however, be a parable for the Christian life. There are some folks who claim to be Christian but who do not serve anyone, any church, any purpose, any Lord. They are not only missing the mark, they are missing the blessings of relationship, of service, of growth. If you were meant to give light, start shining. If you were meant to serve, put on your servant shoes and get busy.

behind you, simply look straight ahead. While sitting there, listen to a recording that addresses a topic that is beyond your comprehension. For the duration of this hour, do not move or speak. Then have someone bigger than you sit beside you, and every time you fidget, have them pinch or threaten to spank you. After you’ve tried this, perhaps you will better understand the perspective of a small child in worship. While I’ll be the first to tell you that a crying baby can be quite an inconvenience and a distraction, let

me share a positive side. ■ A crying baby announces hope for the future. ■ A crying baby testifies of parents’ efforts to spiritually train their child. ■ A crying baby signifies that a church hasn’t bought into the idea that children and adults should be segregated.

Working for youth By Cindy Taylor Lighthouse Christian Church is doing fall cleaning and raising money for a youth trip. Christ in Youth (CIY) will hold a conference next summer. This gives the youth group at Lighthouse plenty of time to raise funds. The church started the fundraising efforts Oct. 8 with a rummage sale. The youth were on hand to

help with setup and sales. Sale items were donated by church members. While the sale was going on inside, church members were working outdoors to beautify the grounds and prepare for winter, pruning plants, mowing grass and – hopefully for the last time this year – raking leaves. The praise band took the opportunity to practice for

Painting a picture of community By Cindy Taylor Fellowship North Church frequently holds community events inviting people to the church for food and fellowship. This quarter, lead pastor Michael Thomas and associate pastor Steve VanHorn pulled together a dinner and painted a picture of what true community should look like. Upon their arrival, attendees were greeted outside the church and given a rousing welcome complete with standing ovation. Children were met with a scooter they could ride to the children’s meeting area inside. Dinner was a breakfast meal of sausage, pancakes, fruit and drinks provided by members of the new campus launch at Fellowship Church Pellissippi. The evening was one of fun and merriment. Twins Rob and Bob Ross (pastors

VanHorn and Thomas) portrayed the late TV personality Bob Ross as they painted a picture onstage. Huddle groups were invited to compete in Oreo contests, balloon-bursting contests and other fun activities. To close out the evening, the more than 40 children who attended the event arrived back in the auditorium with their own paintings of what they thought community should look like. Fellowship North Church will hold an Outside the Box on Sunday, Nov. 30. Members will spend the morning working at various locations in the community. Fellowship North Church is at 3203 Tazewell Pike in the Fountainhead Building. Info and teaching: www.north.fellowshipknox.org.

NEWS FROM POWELL CHIROPRACTIC

Rule #2: You are how you eat By Dr. Donald G. Wegener Each one of us is individual, inside and outside. This is why some diets work for some people while others succeed with a totally different type of diet. There are literally hundreds of different diets books available today, each claiming Dr. Wegener to be the perfect diet for you, and each one promises to give you increased energy, vitality and weight loss. Figuring out what foods do best for your individual physiology is called metabolic typing. There are three basic metabolic types: slow oxidizers, fast oxidizers and mixed oxidizers. Slow oxidizers are people who tend to quickly burn up fat and therefore do better on a high carbohydrate diet. A higher carbohydrate intake spares fat to help balance out how quickly food is used for energy in a slow oxidizer. These people usually do best on a ration of 60 percent carbohydrates, 25 percent proteins and 16 percent fat. These are the type of people who feel better when they consume carbohydrates, but they have to be careful not to get addicted to them because too many carbohydrates will make anyone fatter. Fast oxidizers are people who tend to burn carbohydrates quickly and therefore require a relatively large amount of fats and proteins in their diet to balance out their metabolism. If you are a fast oxidizer you will want to experiment with a diet that has roughly 30 percent carbohydrates, 40 percent proteins and 30 percent fats. It is important

for these types of people to eat frequently and have protein at every meal. This type of person will want to avoid high glycemic foods that limit their carbohydrates, and stick mainly to low glycemic fruits and vegetables and small amounts of grain. Mixed oxidizers are people who are actually a combination of both types and can sometimes fluctuate between one type or the other depending on stress and other external environmental factors. Mixed types obviously have the most freedom with the way they eat but must be in tune with their bodies to know if they are leaning one way or the other from day to day. A mixed oxidizer will generally do better to eat a diet containing approximately 50 percent carbohydrates, 30 percent proteins and 20 percent fats, however this could vary from day to day depending on their stressors.

Losing weight is not as easy as choosing the latest fad diet. It is a process of figuring out the type of diet you were born to eat and make sure you stay within those parameters during each meal.

Powell High senior Will Hurt signed a letter of intent to play golf at CarsonNewman University after graduation.

‘Mockingjay’ lands early, offers marathon The phenomenon rolls on as “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I” opens in theaters at 8 p.m. tomorrow.

Commander Paylor (Patina Miller), Gale Hawthorne (Liam Hemsworth), Boggs (Mahershala Ali), Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) and Pollux (Elden Henson) stay on their toes in “The Hunger Games: Mockingjay – Part I.”

Betsy Pickle

According to Fandango and MovieTickets.com, the third film in the “Hunger Games” saga has racked up the highest advance tickets sales of 2014. Tickets went on sale Oct. 29. Don’t be surprised to find several showings sold out this weekend. The story, based on the third and final novel in Suzanne Collins’ trilogy, picks up where “Catching Fire” left off. Having destroyed the Hunger Games, Katniss Everdeen (Jennifer Lawrence) reluctantly becomes the face of the rebellion in Panem. Katniss continues on her quest to kill Panem President Snow (Donald Sutherland), but meanwhile she has serious trust issues with District 13 President Coin (Julianne Moore), as well as with several allies. Josh Hutcherson, Liam Hemsworth, Woody Harrelson, Elizabeth Banks, Philip Seymour Hoffman, Stanley Tucci and Jeffrey Wright also star. The second part of “Mockingjay” will be released in November 2015. To prepare fans for the latest entry in the “Hunger

Games” series, several theaters will have a “Hunger Games” marathon Thursday, showing “The Hunger Games” and “Catching Fire” before culminating with “Mockingjay – Part I” at 8 p.m. Regal’s Pinnacle, Riviera and West Town and Cinemark’s Tinseltown in Oak Ridge will start the event at 2:30 p.m. But those itching to be first should go to Carmike’s Foothills in Maryville, which will start the marathon at 2 p.m.

Special screenings:

‘Barber,’ Queen Two special screenings will take place at West Town Mall 9 in the next few days. The Metropolitan Opera’s live production of “The Barber of Seville” will be shown at 12:55 p.m. Saturday, Nov. 22. Tickets are $24 for adults, $22 for seniors and $18 for children.

“Queen Rock Montreal,” aka “We Will Rock You: Queen Live in Concert,” will have one showing on the big screen, 7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 24, at West Town. The documentary shot in 1981 shows the band at its peak during a tour stop in Canada. Tickets are $12.50.

Sparkle on the stage As we move into the holiday season, it’s important to remember that all the sparkle is not on the tree. This weekend two “sparkling” productions are opening. Both are full of music and fun.

Plate it This time of year, it’s not a good idea to upset your momma. For that reason, I suggest that, if discussing the meatloaf you just ordered at Sullivan’s Fine Foods at Rocky Hill, you tell her it is “almost as good as yours.” You’ll be lying, because my momma made the best meatloaf in the world, and Sullivan’s is better than hers. Here’s the thing about meatloaf. It’s either schoolcafeteria bad or slap-yomomma good. There really isn’t anything in between. For all its façade of simplicity, meatloaf is hard. It can be “too” on so many levels: too mealy, too dense, too soupy, too tomatoey. Then, even if you get it right, you have to deal with the essential topping. Brown gravy or tomato? If brown, mushrooms or peppers? If tomato, ketchup or

THURSDAY-FRIDAY ■ “The Crucible” presented by the Powell High School Drama Department, 6:30 p.m., at the school. Tickets: $6. Public is invited. Info: 938-2171.

First, the Oak Ridge Playhouse presents “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella.” Those of a certain age will remember the 1965 production with Lesley Ann Warren being waltzed around the ballroom by Stuart Damon as both sang, “ten minutes ago I saw you …” Those of an even – ahem – more certain age may remember the same scenario with Julie Andrews and Jon Cypher in 1957. Featuring such songs as “In My Own Little Corner” and “When You’re Driving Through the Moonlight,” this show is a joy from start to finish. My own favorite is the “Stepsisters’ Lament,” sung by the disgruntled siblings after the prince has been taken with Cinderella’s beauty: “She’s a frothy little bubble with a flimsy kind of charm; and with very little trouble, I could break her little arm!” “Rodgers & Hammerstein’s Cinderella” begins Friday, Nov. 21, and runs through Sunday, Dec. 7.

playhouse.com or call 865482-9999. Knoxville Opera presents its first production of the 2014-2015 season with Gilbert and Sullivan’s “H.M.S. Pinafore.” “This classic comedy is known for its familiar melodies as well as clever wordplay that dares to poke fun at politics and authoritative figures in a delightfully provocative way,” says KOC maestro and executive director Brian Salesky. “People of all ages will enjoy the music, characters, elaborate stage setting and costumes.” The plot plays out aboard a naval ship and centers on the conflicts of love between people from different social classes. The opera takes jabs at the British class system, party politics, the Royal Navy and the ironic rise of unqualified people into authority; even the title injects humor by using the name of the female pinafore garment in reference to the masculine naval warship.

Brian Deedrick of Edmonton Opera in Alberta, Canada, directs the show. He’s well known and loved by Knoxville Opera Company fans and participants. Production manager Don Townsend says, “Deedrick is hilarious as always to work with and has even written some snappy new dialogue for the cast … adding in local gags dealing with UT football, etc.” Townsend is also upbeat about the cast. “Sean Anderson, who sang here recently, is back as a befuddled Captain Corcoran, and Donata Cucinotta is his daughter, Josephine, who is in love with Ralph, tenor Josh Kohl. “But the real star of the show is old friend Steven Condy, who helped inaugurate the first Rossini Festival back in 2002 as Don Magnifico in Rossini’s ‘La Cenerentola.’ Condy is wonderful as the British Lord of the Admiralty, Sir Joseph Porter, who has come

to claim Josephine as his bride.” Local luminaries include University of Tennessee voice professors Lorraine DiSimone and Andrew Wentzel, as well as a 16-member chorus. Having worked for Knoxville Opera Company myself in the past, I can tell you that opera singers – contrary to their “diva” image – are actually some of the nicest, most fun-loving people you’ll ever come across. They’ll be throwing themselves full-tilt into this spectacular production, and you’re invited to join in. Performances are at 8 p.m. Friday, Nov. 21, and 2:30 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 23, at the Tennessee Theatre. Maestro Salesky will host a special opera preview session 45 minutes prior to each performance.

Let’s ‘friend’ people with dementia

By Bill Dockery

Knoxville goes by a lot of labels: “Big Orange Country” for UT sports, or “Scruffy City,” an insult that has turned into a point of pride. Now a group of health-care professionals is determined to paint Knoxville purple, making it the nation’s first official dementia-friendly city. Carolyn Pointer Neil unveiled the broad outline of the Purple Cities AlliNeil ance to a Town Hall East meeting on Nov. 11. Neil, who is president of Elder Advocates in Knoxville, is one of the public fronts for the project, which aims to alert Knoxville organizations and individuals to the needs of people with brain-related illnesses. “The Purple Cities Alliance wants to make our community

aware of the people with dementia in our midst and educate everyone to respond in ways that are helpful and compassionate,” Neil said. The project uses purple from the “Purple Angel” icon, developed in Europe as a marker for dementia awareness and concern. Neil told the Town Hall East gathering about a recent incident that shows the need for the program. “A little lady drove into the parking lot at Kroger’s,” Neil said. “When she was ready to go into the store, she couldn’t remember how to get out of her car. Soon a crowd gathered around, all trying to tell her how to unlock the doors. “Then the fire truck showed up.” Neil called that a dementia emergency that stresses the sufferer, confuses bystanders and burdens family caregivers. She said the alliance’s developing programs will help address these concerns.

“We need to be teaching our community the basics of dementia and how to respond,” Neil said. “I call it CPR for brain disease.” The programs being developed will train businesses, churches, police, firefighters and other emergency personnel to be aware of and to respond to someone suffering a public crisis. The kickoff celebration is scheduled for May 11, 2015, on Market Square in downtown Knoxville. Both Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero and Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett are committed to supporting the effort. By then, the alliance task force plans to have 100 or more businesses, agencies, community organizations and civic groups enrolled. The alliance has posted a Facebook page at https://www.facebook.com/dementiafriendlycommunity. The alliance is already drawing on a wide complement of people and organizations who serve the

aging population, including the Pat Summitt Foundation, Alzheimer’s Tennessee, the East Tennessee Alzheimer’s Association, the area Agency on Aging and Disability and the Knoxville Office on Aging. All three Knoxville-based hospital/ health systems are involved, as are Courtyards Senior Living, Trinity Hills Senior Living, and other area senior-care facilities. Some 80 percent of dementia cases involve Alzheimer’s disease, with vascular dementia making up much of the remaining 20 percent. Worldwide, about 44 million people have brain disease. Neil, a native of Norris, Tenn., is a licensed nursing home administrator with degrees from Berea College and the University of Tennessee, and additional studies with Johns Hopkins University. She worked at UT Medical Center and the Hillcrest nursing homes in Knoxville before founding her own company.

Back home in the backwoods

By Sandra Clark

Backwoods Bistro is open for business in Halls. Owner Nathaniel Morris is optimistic about prospects for the eat-in or carryout restaurant. After all, he knows that great food will keep customers coming back. “We bought the business but kept the name and most menu items,” he said. “We wanted to simplify pricing for families, which we’ve done with our platters.” Platters are served with two sides, hush puppies and a drink. With eight choices including prime rib, pulled pork, hamburger steak, chicken tenders and country-fried steak, platter prices range from $15.99 to $7.99 Baskets include one side and a drink. There are 15 choices ranging from $6.49

The children’s menu includes entrée, fries and a small drink for $3.99 to $4.99. Morris says restaurants define “fresh” differently. Here’s what he means: “All of our burgers are cut from fresh beef chucks, ground and pattied on site.

Our French fries arrive as potatoes, before being cut and seasoned by our chefs. In fact, every entrée, salad dressing and side item is made fresh in our restaurant just for you. “We believe our customers want fresh, flavorful food served by friends in

a local setting. That’s our mission.” Specialties of the house include “tiny but mighty” cupcakes, cookies, cakes and pies (by the slice or whole). There’s beef jerky and barbyaki sauce for eatin or take-home. Even the fries have sides: bacon and ranch or chili and cheese for 89 cents. Morris is proud of his crew, many of whom worked for the previous owner. “We were able to save some jobs,” he says. A cook for almost 20 years, Morris has operated a catering business for five years. He lives on a farm in Corryton and says his dad was a butcher for 20 years. Does he grow his own beef? “Not yet,” he grins. Nathaniel Morris is not boastful. He managed to miss the picture with this story. But he’s determined to create a signature restaurant for Halls. As his menu says about the baked beans, “Well, why not?” Drop in for a treat. Open: 11 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday through Thursday; 11 a.m. to 9 p.m. Friday and Saturday at 6625 Maynardville Pike in the Black Oak Center. Info: 865-377-4634.

Help for insurance sign-up

No Other Card Offers:

With nearly 1 million Tennesseans without health insurance, a new Knoxvillebased company, Enroll Health, plans to reduce that number by making the process fast, easy and affordable for everyone. Everyone needs health coverage – it’s the law – but many Tennesseans have struggled with new requirements under the Affordable Care Act. Enroll Health is a division of Enrollment First Inc., a national company that has provided healthcare solutions to more than

200,000 people over the past decade. Working with all of the major health-insurance providers (Cigna, Humana, Blue Cross/Blue Shield, Aetna, etc.), Enroll Health will review a person’s situation and show them all of the options available to them for free. They will even determine if that individual qualifies for subsidies to offset the cost of their coverage. The entire process takes only minutes and costs nothing. “People really don’t understand the Affordable Care Act,” said Hazen Mirts,

president and CEO of Enroll Health. “We’re helping people who have had insurance for years and we’re helping people who have never had health coverage. Enroll Health can get health insurance for someone for as little as $50 per month, and many people qualify for monthly premiums lower than that. Knox County offices are in West Town Mall and The Gallery on Kingston Pike. Info: 865-243-3900 or www.EnrollHealth.com/.

‘Order in the court!’ When is a majority vote for “guilty” a verdict of “not guilty?” Every time.

Sandra Clark

Knoxville lawyer Scott Frith explained that concept and more to students at Sarah Moore Greene Magnet Academy’s newspaper club last week. Sponsored by Shopper-News, the club meets each Wednesday after school. The first session is primarily third-graders; the second is mostly fifthgraders. Frith (whose email address is scott@pleadthefrith.com) staged a mock trial. I was the defendant, accused of stealing a yellow highlighter. Scott talked

Proton Therapy explained By Bonny Millard The Provision Center for Proton Therapy, which opened earlier this year, provides cutting-edge proton radiation treatment for cancer patients and is quickly making Knoxville a national medical destination. David Raubach, vice president of operations for Provision, spoke to the Rotary Club of Farragut about the center’s aggressive treatment, which reduces side effects associated with conventional radiation treatment. The center, a nonprofit treatment facility, was founded by KnoxRaubach villian Terry Douglass. Proton therapy provides more precise targeting of cancer cells, destroying them while minimizing damage to surrounding tissues. Raubach explained that protons are heavier and can be stopped after entering the body. This way the protons are directed and concentrated in the tumor. X-ray radiation therapy sends beams

that travel all the way through the body, damaging healthy tissues, he said. Proton therapy has been around for a long time, gaining FDA approval in 1988, but the cost was almost prohibitive, he said. The Provision Center, part of the Provision Health Alliance, is located on a campus with several other medical facilities at Dowell Springs off Middlebrook Pike. “The goal was to create a worldclass cancer campus here in Knoxville,” he said. A cyclotron, used in the treatment process, weighs 220 tons or the equivalent of two space shuttles and had to be transported on the Tennessee River. “It was quite a process getting this piece of equipment in,” he said. The center has had patients from 18 states and three different countries, Raubach said. Medicare and some insurance companies will pay for treatment, but progress is being made in getting coverage. The Provision Cares Foundation is available to help patients. Info: www.provisionproton.com/.

is not guilty. Wow. It felt great to be exonerated. I was so happy I caught up with victim Destiny Woods in the hall and offered her highlighter back. Carol Springer, co-spon-

sor of the club, said afterward that a better defense would have been to argue that the yellow object in my hand was a banana and I was running because I was really, really hungry. But why argue with a win?

Danea Summerford became Ruth White’s favorite because she’s so handy with a camera. Now she tops my list because as my defense lawyer she sprang me on a technicality. The sky’s the limit for this kid.
