Food City grows

Central High School’s dynamic choral director Beckye Thomas hasn’t got much time to relax during the holiday season. With all of her students’ upcoming performances, it would be easy to excuse Thomas if she happened to be a bit tuckered at this point. But she’s not.

A Church Called Home Pastor Jason Creech says he knew in his heart that North Knox County was where God wanted him to plant a church. He was a youth pastor for six years before making the move here to start A Church Called Home.

Powell is getting a new Food City store on Clinton Highway at the intersection with the new Emory Road. The 52,000-square foot store will be built behind the Walgreens, facing the new road now under construction. Company officials including CEO Steven Smith were in Powell last Wednesday to break ground. “This is a replacement store that will create 75 new jobs (175 total) in

The high cost of losing How much does it cost to win? Doesn’t matter. Just write a check. If you owe payments on a big ballpark, you must have people occupying seats. Pay whatever it takes to attract customers. Losing is not an acceptable alternative. It is too expensive. Can Butch Jones solve the problem? Dave Hart has bet the entire estate that he can. All Butch has to do is win.

the community,” said Smith. Food City in Powell Place will close when the new store opens. Smith hopes to open the store in June 2013, depending on weather. “We’re excited,” he said. “This is a $6- to $7-million investment.” Food City owns the land and will both build and operate the new store. Terri Gilbert will manage the expanded store. A Halls resident, she has previously managed the Food City on Merchant Road and

By Betty Bean Pellissippi State Community College and Knox County Schools are moving forward with a plan to establish a Career and Technical Education (CTE) magnet high school on Pellissippi State’s Strawberry Plains campus. The collaborative effort is still in the talking stage, but Pellissippi’s vice president for academic affairs, Ted Lewis, says it makes sense for both systems. “We are in conversations right now, and it looks like the plan is to share space at first, with dedicated space to come as we continue to build out,” Lewis said.

Talks underway follow the L&N STEM school model and start with freshman admission, creating a career path. Lawson is exploring the concept of dual enrollment, but hasn’t found an exact model for what they want to do. “We want to create something special for students that would choose this path. We haven’t narrowed it down yet, but we’re impressed with Pellissippi’s willingness to work with us.” However they choose to proceed, the physical fa-

From page A-1 cilities are there. The high school classrooms will be located on the first floor of the enormous 223,000-squarefoot facility’s three-story main building, said Mike North, campus dean of the Strawberry Plains facility. “We’ve started small, intentionally, with seven classrooms that utilize 20 percent of the building,” said North, who was an administrator at the school’s Division Street campus before taking on the job at the new Strawberry Plains campus last spring. “We of-

fer 40-45 classes to date. We tried to make as broad an offering as possible.” King College is offering several course options at the Strawberry Plains campus, and North said Pellissippi State is in conversations with several other colleges about locating branches there. The space is wellsuited for technical classes and engineering programs, he said. Constructed in 1980 by Philips Consumer Electronics as its East Tennessee headquarters, renovated in 2002 and abandoned in 2006, Pellissippi State of-

The landscaping was designed to leave many mature trees in place while providing 650 parking spaces. Inside, white boards still covered with plans and marketing strategies dominate the wall in one meeting room; desks and filing cabinets sit ready for use in the former corporate offices.

tion that will be perfect for culinary classes and student dining. North’s office overlooks a pond and an expanse of green lawn. Original artwork hangs on the front lobby walls above the heads of students bent over laptops. A Toys for Tots bin sits by the front entrance across from notices about volunteering opportunities with Second Harvest. Pellissippi State bought the 32.6-acre campus in March for $10 million. The state footed most of the bill – $8.5 million – and the Pellissippi State Foundation

kicked in the remaining $1.5 million. A March 13 press release announced the purchase: “The college has long recognized the need for more effective outreach in the east, north and south parts of Knox County. It’s a need driven in part by the area’s educational demographic. “In West Knox County, 43.6 percent of residents have college degrees, according to a report the college compiled with U.S. Department of Census data. In the rest of the county, 22.9 percent of residents have a degree.”

government ‘Speak up,’ says Nownes By Sandra Clark I’ve heard worse jokes from Jay Leno. Dr. Anthony Nownes delighted the standingroom-only crowd at the Bearden Branch Library with his analysis Tony Nownes of the recent presidential election. He got a few amens with his admonition to speak up for Democratic principles. The UT political science professor started by explaining why he did not vote for Barack Obama. “To me Obama is a moderately liberal Republican.” Instead, Nownes voted for the Green Party candidate. How did the incumbent win in a time of economic challenge? “The electorate has

changed. The era of old white guys is ending. Look at two demographics: one is old, South, rich, white, men; the other is young, urban, non-white, women. One demographic is growing; one is shrinking.” Nownes said Obama had “an outstanding ground game – better than any campaign I’ve ever seen.” And it didn’t hurt that Republicans nominated so many “crazy” candidates, he said. “This is the first election I can recall when someone said ‘the rape candidate’ and you had to ask which one.” Finally, the economy is improving and people blame George W. Bush more than Obama for the mess. Nownes said state and local elections matter. He urged the Democrats from the 3rd and 4th districts to speak out. “Don’t hold your tongue; don’t be a wimp.”

Haslam to get last word on parkway project

TDOT held its hearing at South-Doyle last week on the long-delayed South Knoxville Parkway connector. The hearing was required by law even if the final decision is to kill the project. This issue has been around for more than 20 years. In fact, the bridge to South Knoxville, which was built about 25 years ago, was first programmed by TDOT to be a continuation from the Cherry Street intersection with Magnolia by extending it across the residential area of East Knoxville to the Tennessee River where a bridge would then be built. The predominantly African-American part of East Knoxville was still trying to recover from the damage brought on by the 1950’s urban renewal which built the Civic Coliseum and Auditorium and the KPD Safety Building but destroyed the historic business area of Knoxville’s black community, from which even 50 years later it has not fully recovered. Urban renewal in those days ignored neighborhood concerns and took Betty the attitude that historic Bean preservation was a nice idea for middle-aged folks with time on their hands but was have that way.

‘Ho, ho’ and all that Nick Della Volpe says he was simply trying to get Fulton High School’s state championship football team into the Christmas parade. Madeline Rogero says a city staff member had to apologize to the parade’s corporate sponsor for his rudeness. It started last Monday when Della Volpe emailed the mayor for help: “I have been receiving phone calls from upset folks in the 4th District that the WIVK parade brain trust has decided that the state champs Fulton Falcons football team can’t march in the Christmas parade because they didn’t register on time!” On Wednesday, Rogero responded: “Several city staff members spent most of yesterday addressing concerns about the parade which, in the end, was mainly about miscommunication. Your response to it made it worse. In the future, I would appreciate you using a more collaborative and respectful approach when communicating with major sponsors of city events. These relationships are delicate and extremely beneficial to the city.” Rogero said that city events director Judith Foltz “… spent an hour at WIVK personally apologizing for the tone of your phone call to Cumulus management in which you were described as abrupt, rude and a ‘bully.’ My understanding is that they were stunned that a council person would be-

thing new and in many cases just ugly. The country is still paying a high price for such short-sighted values. However, when the African-American community discovered that a Cherry Street connector was scheduled to cut the remaining part of East Knoxville in two with an interstate-type highway, the leadership got busy along with then state Rep. Pete Drew. Such a road would have been a dagger in the heart of East Knoxville. They effectively killed the location but did not stop the bridge, which was built where it is today with modest traffic counts (somewhat higher while the Henley Street bridge is closed). TDOT itself has been controversial in Knoxville, a fact which led to Phil Bredesen carrying Knox County in his 2002 election as governor over then- U.S. Rep. Van Hillary. Bredesen proceeded to remove the previous arrogance of TDOT, and Gov. Haslam has continued a more user-friendly depart-

ment with the appointment of a former Franklin mayor, John Schroer, as TDOT commissioner. In his almost two years as commissioner, Schroer has conducted summer tours of road projects across the state. While technically he will make the final decision on whether this project goes forward or dies, it is inconceivable that he would not make inquiries with the governor who was mayor of Knoxville and knows the issue first-hand prior to deciding on what to do. Ten years ago, when as mayor I advocated the creation of the Marie Myers Park in South Knoxville, many saw that as an attempt to block the South Knoxville Parkway extension. It was a lonely position I took in arguing against the high cost of the project as well as the negative environmental issues. I was also opposing the Orange Route through Hardin Valley along with a mayoral candidate, Madeline Rogero, in 2003. It is heartwarming to see the Orange Route buried and public opinion on the South Knoxville Parkway reversing from support to overwhelming opposition. Vice Mayor Nick Pavlis, along with Mayor Rogero and county Mayor Tim Burchett, has been very public

in his view that times have changed. The stellar urban wilderness moving forward in South Knoxville, which will be an economic generator, should not be jeopardized by a $100 million project which will benefit few and harm many. However, we should not forget that Chapman Highway needs upgrading once the Henley Street bridge work is completed. Pavlis deserves special credit along with both mayors for stepping forward on this issue to continue Knoxville’s effort to be a green city in a responsible way. Legacy Parks leaders Carol Evans and Brian Hann have been key spokespersons on the foolishness of this project. Times have changed, and a project that some thought made sense in the 1980s no longer makes any sense in 2012. Dwindling TDOT dollars should go to more urgent and costeffective projects in Knox County and East Tennessee. ■ Term limits for the city: Since city voters enacted term limits, not one mayor or council member has failed to win a second and final term in office. Term limits have effectively become an 8-year term for city officials as challengers wait out the incumbent knowing he/she cannot seek a third term. Whether this was intended is unknown, but it is what has happened. Only former council member Steve Hall had a close call when Ellen Adcock opposed him in 2005, but he still prevailed by less than 200 votes. Nick McBride, who has chaired the event for many years, says the party is open to any Republicans who want to attend. Tickets are $25. If you haven’t bought one yet, Nick says just show up and they’ll sell you one at the door. “It’s not really a political event,” he says. “It’s just a good time for Republicans to come together and enjoy a good dinner and conversation and to celebrate the holiday season.” Club president Ruthie Kuhlman says she is being encouraged to have karaoke for the evening’s entertainment, but isn’t sure everyone would appreciate it. If all is quiet on the western front tonight you’ll know Ruthie was right. If not, hope you have a set of earplugs handy.

MPC to meet Thursday Knoxville Knox County Metropolitan Planning Commission will meet at 1:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13, in the main assembly room of the City County Building. Agenda items include election of officers for 2013 and discussion of compensation for personnel.

William Rule’s Christmas message

The Knoxville Journal building circa 1925. Toward the end of the career of its longtime editor, Capt. William Rule (1839-1928) (inset), the Knoxville Journal built this elegant early 20th century architectural gem which still stands at 618 S. Gay Street. Photos courtesy C.M. McClung Historical Collection

HISTORY AND MYSTERIES | Dr. Jim Tumblin Last month’s article on Capt. William Rule (18391928) discussed his youth and his Civil War military career. He served as adjutant and accompanied his unit, the 6th Tennessee Volunteer Infantry (USA), through four major battles and numerous skirmishes. They had traveled nearly 10,000 miles on foot or on horseback before he was mustered out of service at Nashville on April 27, 1865. The war had broadened Capt. Rule and colored his perspective on the future and his role in it. As Shelby Foote observed, “Before the war, people had a theoretical notion of having a country, but when the war was over, on both sides they knew they had a country. They’d been there. They had walked its hills and tramped its roads. They saw the country and they knew they had a country. And they knew the effort that they had expended and their dead friends had expended to preserve it. It did that. The war made their country an actuality. Before the war, it was said, ‘The United States are ...’ ... After the war, it was always, ‘The United States is ...’” Capt. Rule had worked in the newspaper business only brief ly before the war. Working under the inimitable William G. “Parson” Brownlow, who had made the Knoxville Whig a force to be reckoned with well beyond East Tennessee, convinced Rule that he wanted to make journalism his career. In 1866, Rule became city editor of the Whig. In 1870, he and Henry C. Tarwater founded a weekly paper, the Knoxville Chronicle, which later became a daily paper and was for many years the only Republican paper published south of the Ohio River. He and Henry Marfield started the Knoxville Journal in 1885. Rule became the sole owner in 1889 and merged with the Tribune in 1898 to become the Knoxville Journal and Tribune. The paper again became simply the Knoxville Journal in 1925. When Rule’s career as a newspaper editor came to an end with his death, he had served with distinction for an astounding 62 years. His inf luence in the community was enhanced by service on the Knox County Court, as postmaster and as Knoxville mayor for two terms (1873 and 1898). He was appointed a trustee of East Tennessee University (later the University of Tennessee) in 1868 and served as secretary of the board for 40 years. From 1876 to 1884, he was a member of the Republican National Committee. In 1900, he published the 590-page “Standard History of Knoxville, Tennessee,” which is such an important source of local history that it was republished in 2009 by Charles A. Reeves Jr. Rule’s thoughtful editorials are typified by his classic Christmas message printed on Dec. 25, 1926, only two years before his death. It ended with this paragraph: “What is here written may savor of a direct departure from the custom, honored in its observance, of making Christmas the happiest day in the year for children. There is no

better way of teaching, of building, of strengthening, an ever-enduring love of country than through the making of the children as happy and as contented as possible. Of all the human passions, love is the strongest and the most enduring. Love of Jesus means a love of home, a love of the house of worship, love for the book of books, love is the foundation-stone of civilization respecting citizenship, love of the glorious Stars and Stripes, bequeathed to us by our fathers who fought, bled and many of them died, in a country that stands for free schools, freedom of thought and freedom of worship of Him in whose worship is seen a combination of humanity with Divinity. We quote from Whittier, the Quaker poet: Blow, bugles of battle, the

marches of peace/East, west, north and south let the long quarrel cease/ Sing the song of great joy than angels began/Sing of story of God and of good will to man!” In Mark Twain’s memorable essay, “Journalism in Tennessee,” he describes the local newspaper’s mission thusly, “… to disseminate truth; to eradicate error, to educate, refine and elevate the tone of public morals and manners, and make all men more gentle, more virtuous, more charitable, and in all ways better and holier and happier ….” Capt. William Rule, having fulfilled those lofty goals for more than 60 years, died of acute appendicitis on Aug. 5, 1928, at age 89. At that time he was the oldest active newspaper editor in the United States.

His funeral services were conducted in his home at 1604 W. Clinch Ave. The Rev. Richard M. Mallard, pastor of First Methodist, Rule’s home church, conducted the service and the old soldier, whose birthday Knoxville considered “next to Christmas,” was buried in Old Gray Cemetery. One of the f loral tributes was from Adolph Ochs, publisher of The New York Times, who had begun his career as office boy for Capt. Rule. Another arrangement was from the local Daughters of the Confederacy Memorial Association, an organization which had never sent

ou have known the men and women of Rural/Metro Ambulance Service for more than 25 years now. That’s how long Rural/ Metro has been caring for the citizens of Knox County when they are at their most vulnerable – in an emergency. In recent weeks, Knox County has been engaged in a process to put the ambulance contract out for bid, as is required. A panel of independent experts – selected by the purchasing department and not disclosed to Rural/Metro – spent many hours evaluating the bids of three ambulance companies. Through a rigorous scoring process, the panel recommended last week that Knox County renew its contract with Rural/Metro,

a f loral offering to honor a Union Army veteran. One observer called him the “city’s noblest citizen.” Lucy Ann Maxey, a descendant of Landon Carter Haynes and Nathaniel Taylor, prominent upper East Tennesseans, had become William’s bride on Oct. 28, 1858. She passed away on Oct. 24, 1928, in her 91st year, less than three months after her husband’s death. During their 70 years of marriage, Lucy Ann had raised the two children who survived her, William and Lillian, and four others who predeceased her: James Frederick, Cora, Stella and Alida. She had welcomed

many famous guests into her home, which was also considered a mecca for visiting Methodist laymen and ministers. The bishop, the Rev. B.J. Cooke, called it his “home away from home.” At her passing the Knoxville Journal used a quote from the book of Proverbs to describe her: “She looked well to the ways of her household, and eateth not the bread of idleness. Her children arise up and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praiseth her. Give her the fruit of her hands; and let her own works praise her in the gates.”

and the item is on County Commission’s agenda this month. We thought you’d be glad to know about Rural/Metro’s selection. One of Rural/Metro’s competitors has filed an appeal of that recommendation, which is within their legal rights. Unfortunately, they also are unfairly attacking the integrity of some of the selection committee members. The evaluation process used by Knox County was conducted in a thorough and professional way. We believe County Commission is not going to be swayed by these desperate tactics. We just wanted to keep you informed, and we look forward to providing the same excellent, trusted emergency service in the future.

High cost of losing How much does it cost to win? Doesn’t matter. Just write a check. If you owe payments on a big ballpark, you must have people occupying seats. Pay whatever it takes to attract customers. Losing is not an acceptable alternative. It is too expensive. Can Butch Jones solve the problem? Dave Hart has bet the entire estate that he can. All Butch has to do is win. Consider the Tennessee cost of not winning enough football games. The buyout for Phillip Fulmer was $6 million. That was to head off a decline in revenue. Alas, matters got worse. Imagine paying an executive search company for finding the likes of Lane Kiffin. Take into account the $3.6 million Tennessee used to hire Kiffin assistants. It was a world

record! OK, Lane’s daddy got more than half. Losing costs so much. Think about moving expenses for all the Derek Dooley aides. Some didn’t stay long enough to establish voting privileges. The cost of firing Dooley for failure will be a longterm burden, another $5 million plus. Should Tennessee have been patient? Of course not – unless going broke is the new goal. Wait, wait, you say, it is unfair to set the bar so high. Why should we ex-

pect a man paid millions to win games to actually win games? The Southeastern Conference is a tough place to play. Look at people in government. They keep their jobs without producing anything. Come to think of it, we don’t know if Dooley knew what he was doing and might have eventually produced a big winner. We may never know. We don’t know if Jones can work a miracle but he does have a track record. We don’t know if he can recruit against SEC competition. We know he better, starting last week. Tennessee has not yet added up all the negatives of the past four years. Empty seats were an indication of lost ticket revenue – serious money. Linked to that were sagging concession profits and a sharp fall

Angels everywhere In the sixth month the angel Gabriel was sent by God to a town in Galilee called Nazareth, to a virgin engaged to a man who name was Joseph, of the house of David. The virgin’s name was Mary. And he came to her and said, “Greetings, favored one! The Lord is with you.” (Luke 1: 26-28 NRSV) Even before Gabriel showed up in Nazareth, an angel had appeared to Zechariah in the Temple in Jerusalem. That angel — who remains unnamed — informed the startled Zechariah that he and Elizabeth would have a son who was to be named John. That was a newsflash indeed, because Eliz-

abeth was past the time of child-bearing, a fact which John had the temerity to point out to the angel, a bit of sass which earned him nine months of muteness as punishment. Not long after that, the angel Gabriel appeared to Mary, announcing that she would bear a child who would be the Son of God.

Cross Currents

Lynn Hutton She, too, raised objections to the angel’s news, questioning how that would happen, since she was a virgin. Fortunately, an angel came to counsel Joseph as well, to reassure him that his betrothed was telling him the truth about this child she was carrying. Later, there were angels

in sales of souvenirs and orange attire. You should see the racks of leftovers at Penney’s. The loss of enthusiasm meant a drop in donations. And, oh my, consider the reduced value of Tennessee football to advertisers. How would you like to be First Tennessee or Food City or Dish? Tennessee has leaked money and squandered respect. Not being relevant in the big market is so discouraging. Tennessee hasn’t been in a Southeastern Conference race since 2007. Some fans recognize the dilemma. Several prospective coaches apparently did. They used Tennessee’s interest to leverage better deals where they were. That left Hart bouncing off walls, the proverbial golf ball in a bathroom. Here, there, somewhere else. OK, I’ve been told that you can’t win ’em all, that losing on the field, in recruiting and in finding a replacement coach is part of

– hosts of them, armies of them – appearing to shepherds, reporting the news and finally, at the end of all this drama, one solitary angel who came to Joseph in Egypt, reassuring him that the danger had passed and he and his little family could return to Nazareth. These are the angel stories we hear during Advent and Christmas. But there are many others. Angels appear throughout the biblical story, from Genesis to Revelation, with varied assignments. Angels stood guard at the entrance to Eden. Angels carried messages from heaven to humans. Angels rolled a stone away from the door of a tomb. Angels do battle. Angels lead

It has a rich history in football. It has been semi-serious since 1892. Despite recent struggles, it remains top 10 all-time in total victories.

Never, in comparison with rivals, has Tennessee been as low as it is. When you are 41-18 behind Vanderbilt, it is way past time to take remedial action. The ball is in your court, Butch. We cannot afford more losing. Change directions. Pay off old debts. Hurry.

worship in heaven. And in Revelation, an angel was given guardianship over each of the seven churches. Angels were busy creatures. So, here is my question. Where are they today? Have you seen an angel lately? Me neither. Well, there was the angel in my neighborhood who drove his white pickup truck and kept watch over the body of my Jordan’s dog, Cooper, who had been hit by a car. And there is my angel Tom who brings bags of paperback books to the Refuge about twice a month, so our neighbors have good reading material. And there is my angel Pat who works miracles of organi-

zation in the Refuge closet. And there are all the volunteer angels who come their one day every week, faithfully, patiently seeking to help, to encourage, to challenge, to care. And there is my angel David at the Greyhound station who always has a kind word for the stranded traveler I am trying to help. And there are about 140 angels who sing with me in the Knoxville Choral Society, who bring joy and wonder to my heart every single time we make music together. And there are friends and family, literally the world over, whose hearts beat in unison with mine. Where are your angels?

A Church Called Home jumps hurdles to open its doors By Cindy Taylor Pastor Jason Creech says he knew in his heart that North Knox was where God wanted him to plant a church. He was a youth pastor for six years before making the move here to start A Church Called Home. “Two and a half years ago I was at a church in Cincinnati praying about whether to move there and go on staff,” said Creech. “The Lord spoke to my heart that the next step was to plant a church.” Creech said the next step was to wait for God to give him a supernatural love for a city and go there. He said that in his heart there was really only one place and that was north Knoxville. He and his wife of 16 years, Melissa, had visited Knox-

ville on retreats and Melissa had worked at Tennova North for five years. She was commuting for more than an hour each way from Bell County, Ky., at that time, so Knoxville made sense for many reasons. “We just knew this was where we needed to be,” said Creech. “We put our house on the market and it sold for the asking price.” But it wasn’t just a matter of deciding and moving. Creech joined forces with The Association of Related Churches (ARC) and had to meet certain criteria. He said there were three huge hurdles. There had to be 35 people in place and ready to serve before the church could open its doors; they found 40. Then they had to raise $80,000 so the

church could begin as a selfsupporting entity prior to launch. This fell into place as well thanks to a financial support team. The last hurdle was to pay forward to the next church plant by giving 10 percent of the church income back to ARC until they reached $30,000, and they are well on the way. A Church Called Home launched Sept. 9 at Halls Cinema with an attendance of 118. The church holds a series of Meet the Family classes to allow visitors to look inside the workings of the church and assess their own spiritual gifts and dreams. “I believe that God has put a dream in everyone’s heart,” said Creech. “It is our dream that our members live their dream. We believe this can be done

where we stay in the presence of God.” A Church Called Home meets at 10:45 a.m. Sundays at Halls Cinema, 3800 Neal Drive. Info: 643-8900.

Church holds benefit concert By Theresa Edwards Beaver Ridge United Methodist Church held a very merry anti-malaria holiday benefit concert. “The donations are being sent to Imagine No Malaria. We are participating with other churches in our area with a goal to save 100,000 lives by the end of June,” said the Rev. Catherine C. Nance. The concert featured vocalist Jo Ludwig and pianist Jean Osborne joined by the Powell High School elite men’s and women’s quartets. Ludwig’s first song was “Breath of Heaven” sung from the perspective of Mary, a song of praise to God. She also performed a fun song, “Nestor, the LongEared Christmas Donkey,” in which she gave small toy donkeys to volunteers who came up front to help. “No one ever used him in a stable where he stayed. All the donkeys teased him,” she said. One day he was chosen because of his

special eyes to carry Mary to Bethlehem as the angels gave him directions. Students from Powell then sang, first separately and then together in a lively comical cancan song and dance. Joining arms, the students kicked in unison. “Merry Christmas and Happy Hanukkah to you,” they sang.

Teamwork fills Totes of Love

Janice White (at right) and others filled 150 tote bags with school supplies, personal hygiene items, gloves and toys, and delivered them to Copper Ridge Elementary, Powell Elementary, Powell Middle and Powell High schools last week. The bags, called Totes of Love, were made by members of the Heiskell Senior Center and will be distributed to students prior to the holiday break. Thanks to community members, the bags were filled to the brim and will bring smiles to many faces this Christmas. “This project wouldn’t have been possible without the help of so many people in the community,” said White. A medical office filled 20 bags and several businesses held friendly competition to see who could get more bags sponsored. Photos by Ruth White

Shopper-News Presents Miracle Makers

Acclaimed choral director reveals secret to success: work By Betty Bean Central High School’s dynamic choral director Beckye Thomas hasn’t got much time to relax during the holiday season. At 7:30 p.m. Thursday, Dec. 13, she will direct all three Central High School performing groups – the Bel Canto/Bobcat Company, the Select Choraliers and the Concert Choir – in a Christmas concert at the school auditorium. This will reprise the show her students put on at the Tennessee Theatre last week in what has become a Mighty Musical Monday annual December tradition. Mighty Wurlitzer maestro Dr. Bill Snyder says the Central High School singers performances are so popular that they now do two shows to accommodate the crowds who come to hear them. “It’s just a wonderful venue,” Thomas said. “They (her students) love it. They were glowing.” Anyone unable to attend the Christmas show can catch the Bobcat Company Sunday, Dec. 23 on WATE-TV. In the interim, the Bobcat Company will perform for Pilot Oil’s Christmas celebration at the Knoxville Convention Center and go back to the Tennessee Theatre for Regal Cinema’s party. Add those future events to the Select Choraliers performance with the Knoxville Symphony Orchestra’s Young People’s Concert in November and the Bobcat Company women’s

participation in the KSO/Appalachian Ballet’s production of the Nutcracker Suite at the Civic Coliseum the weekend before Mighty Musical Monday, and it would be easy to excuse Thomas if she happened to be a bit tuckered at this point. But she’s not. If Thomas, a relentless bundle of energy in her 28th year at Central High School (and, quite unbelievably, her 40th year with Knoxville/ Knox County Schools), is tired, she shows no sign of fatigue. She maintains that cranking out nonstop performance gems and winning awards too numerous to list requires more perspiration than inspiration, and she is always reminding her students that hard work trumps talent. She worries that the hit television show “Glee” is conveying the opposite message to young people. She hopes kids don’t look at it as “Oh, gee, look at this – within an hour we can start from nothing and put on a full-fledged production.” “This is a problem in this instant gratification Cast members Channing Murphy, Katie Davis and Kaitlyn Wat- world,” Thomas kin celebrate the Magic of Christmas during a December 2008 said. “What they production at Central High.

It’s not something at your fingertips. I tell my students that the only place I know where success comes before work is in the dictionary. I learned it from my parents and my hero, my high school band director Mr. Stanley Barnes. Along with my dance teacher growing up, they were my biggest influences in developing a strong work ethic.” One of her fondest professional memories is of a bashful student who blossomed in the chorus before he graduated in 1989: “Roger Wallace came to me his sophomore year as a hard-core baseball player. He was so shy he barely moved his mouth,” Thomas said. By his senior year, Wallace was playing the lead in Central’s Broad-

way show, and then he majored in music at the University of Tennessee and was a member of the UT Singers before heading to Austin, Texas, to seek his fortune. Thomas is proud that he was voted Most Promising Newcomer in the Austin music scene. She has one of his CDs in her office. “I always like to look here in the liner notes and see ‘Thank you to Beckye Thomas,” she said. “It’s not so much about the exceptional talent – it’s the work that gets you there.” Another document on her desk is the Bobcat Company group evaluation that scores leadership, work ethic, respect, cooperation, morale building, pride, dependability, enthusiasm, humility and desire for excellence. “Nowhere does it say ‘vocal ability,’” Thomas said.

Powell tops Karns in OT By Theresa Edwards The nail-biter that was the Powell/Karns game Nov. 30 ended in a 65-62 Powell victory in overtime. The teams were tied at 53 at the end of regulation. Powell led most of the game, but Karns caught up, forcing the overtime, and then took the lead. But Powell roared back to win. It will be interesting to watch both teams throughout the season, as they appear to be close competitors.

Smithbilt launches Ridgehaven

The Rural/Metro conundrum On what basis does a community decide to award a long-term contract for vital emergency services? Here’s a first. I don’t know. But I do know the current process for selecting the ambulance service provider is flawed. Ten years ago Susan Brown and Russ Jensen were the faces of Rural/ Metro. Today Rob Webb and Johnny Mills are. The only constant is Moxley Carmichael as the company’s strategist and public relations advocate. Ten years ago then-county executive Tom Schumpert and his team wanted to flip the contract to American Medical Response. AMR “won” at every level of the county’s Request for Proposals and appeals. But Knox County Commission asserted its prerogative to pick the contractor. Led by then-commissioner John Mills, the contract went to Rural/Metro. And, following term limits, so did Mills. This time the situation is reversed. Rural/Metro was selected over AMR and a third vendor, Falck. This time AMR, through its PR advocate Mike Cohen, has appealed. Late Friday came the word that the appeal was denied by Hugh Holt, director of purchasing. Now it goes to the new finance director, Chris Caldwell, and then on to Mayor Tim Burchett. Know this. Holt and Caldwell work at the pleasure of Burchett.

We expect to sell out in a year.” A similar development on McCloud Road sold out 53 lots in two years. Emerton said the model, when finished, will be open from 2-6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays.

Tennova dedicates stained glass said Williams. “We at Tennova Healthcare never want to miss an opportunity to help others, and this window reflects our dedication to the patients and families we serve in our hospitals.” The window is one of the six original stained glass windows installed in the Graves-Wyatt Chapel at Baptist Hospital in 1962. The windows were carefully removed and preserved in storage when Baptist was closed in 2008. Hix related a story afterwards: “After the windows were pulled out, we had a huge hailstorm with significant damage. It broke out the windows we had installed as replacements.” A grant from the Mercy Foundation brought back the windows. The first was

By Sandra Clark The gathering was somber last week as a stained glass window from the chapel at the old Baptist Hospital was dedicated and put on permanent display in the lobby of the Ancillary Cancer Center on the Tennova campus off Emory Road. Mildred Cockrum, the widow of Howard Blanc Cockrum, and her son, Roy, represented the family of Henry D. Blanc, a founder of Baptist Hospital and longtime chair of its board. The glass was dedicated in his memory. Chaplains Daniel Hix and Gail Williams led the Dec. 5 service. “What a testament to healing hands touching the lives of people 24 hours a day, seven days a week,”

installed in 2011 at Tennova South. In July, two were installed at Turkey Creek Medical Center and one was installed at Newport Medical Center in August. Plans are underway to install the final window at Physicians Regional Medical Center by year’s end. According to a press statement, “The windows are beautifully crafted, showing different Bible scenes that are meant to inspire many generations to come at Tennova locations throughout the region. The window at North Knoxville Medical Center represents Luke 13:12, a beautiful stained glass display of Jesus healing a woman on the Sabbath. “The artisans at Willet Stained Glass Studios in
