Miracle Maker Jim Bellamy could have been a comedian. He taught American history at Powell High School from 1952-66 and was principal at Farragut High School for 24 years, serving until his retirement in 1990. Sandra Clark recalls an interview she conducted with Bellamy in 2000.

Mesmerized by Michael Messing By Cindy Taylor Magician Michael Messing has a talent for lighting up children’s eyes with illusions and magic. Messing brought that talent, along with a few props, to the Powell Branch Library on June 20. The gifted illusionist kept more than 80 people entertained with a 45-minute performance using scarves, balloons, cards and an occasional audience member. His act was nonstop and easily held the attention of both children and adults. Audience laughter was a constant part of the act. Lili Foust and Kyle Needham helped with one of the tricks and were amazed that Messing made handkerchiefs disappear and circles become squares and triangles. “Wow,” said Kyle after one of the tricks. “How did he do that?” “My job as a magician is to trick you from time to time,” Messing said. Messing has performed in the library system for 14 years and has been creating magic for 40. He has performed on Carnival Cruise Lines, at festivals, family events and birthday parties, and was voted Best Party Entertainer by East Tennessee Parent Magazine. Volunteer Kyle Needham, 6, magician Michael Messing and volunteer Lili Foust, 7, sport huge smiles as they perform magic together at the Powell Branch Library. Photo by Cindy Taylor

HPUD adopts summer sewer cap By Sandra Clark Hallsdale Powell Utility District customers could get a break on sewer bills this summer. The board of commissioners adopted a plan last week that will set a cap on sewer charges for residential customers during June, July and August this year only based on average monthly water usage in 2012. Darren Cardwell, chief operating officer, said the customers would still pay for all water used, but the sewer charge would be capped at

the average. Customers do not have to request this service. He said the 12,000 gallon sewer cap remains and the swimming pool credit program will be retained. “This will produce some savings for folks who use more water in the summer months,” Cardwell said. The full policy will be on HPUD’s website. HPUD set 26 water meters and inspected 19 sewer hook-ups during May. The district treated 234.2 million gallons of water and 276.8 million gallons of wastewater.

Payments were OK’d for Judy Construction ($317,285) for work on the Raccoon Valley Road Wastewater Treatment Plant expansion, which is 90 percent complete, and Mike Smith Pump Service ($118,148) for the East Brushy Valley Road waterline improvements. Cardwell said the Brushy Valley project has “almost doubled the water pressure” in some areas and increased water volume by replacing leaky 2-inch galvanized pipe. The staff outnumbered the

customers at the district’s second evening meeting. Only Bonnie Holloway spoke, again asking questions: Property on corner of Maynardville Hwy. and Cunningham Road: Board member Bob Crye suggested listing the lot for sale, but the idea was punted back to Cardwell with instructions to talk with commercial real estate brokers.

tention or not. They either sell or not. Sometimes we will check 30 places and not cite anyone.” In May, CVS Pharmacy at 417 E. Emory Road was cited for a first offense. John Williams of Lenoir City represented the company. He blamed a computer system error for not flagging the under-aged buyer of a six-pack of Bud Lite. “The parameters were set wrong,” he said. Smith moved for a $500 fine. Spicy’s North, 950 E. Emory Road, was up next, for a second offense. Lee Mayshark said several folks including an under-aged buyer sat at a table and ordered Bud Lite. “We preach to those employees every day,” about checking ID, he said. Smith said Mayshark is “trying to do the right thing and make Spicy’s family-friendly.” Then he moved for a $1,000 fine. Next up was New Smokies,

7217-C Clinton Highway, first offense. The owner was the violator. John Baker said he was “in a hurry” and just glanced at the ID. “This is a wake-up call for me, an awful and general embarrassment,” said Baker. In addition to the $500 fine at the Beer Board, he was cited to court where he worked a plea deal by paying a $300 fine. The offense will be on his record for a year. “I’ve sold beer and liquor for 18 years and never had an offense,” said Baker. Commission chair Tony Norman asked May if it’s his policy to try to catch operators during stressful times. May said no. Finally, came Heiskell Market & Deli, 9443 Heiskell Road, on a first offense. “We went in on April 9 and bought a six-pack of Bud Lite,” said May. Smith grimaced and moved for a $500 fine.

Farragut play day Last week, the Shopper News interns braved the flood to enjoy a play day in Farragut. They praticed their golf swings at the Concord Par 3’s indoor facility. They enjoyed lunch at Lakeside Tavern and got a history lesson from columnist and historian Malcolm Shell. The day ended with a tour of WBIR-TV and a guest spot on “Live at Five at Four.”

‘Highly favored and richly blessed’ The Knox North Lions were entertained by guest speaker, author and sportswriter Marvin West at their June 19 meeting.

West is coming up on 60 years in the profession and can wrap up the past few years of his career with four words – “I am still alive.” “If you read on the News Sentinel website a while back that I had died, today is not a resurrection story, just a mistake on the part of the paper,” he said. West says he got a kick out of answering the phone when condolence calls came in to his wife, Sarah. He also says that he has not always been the most popular guy in the newspaper. “I have been called the best in town by some. Others said I should leave town. Edward Boling, past president of the University of Tennessee, called me too aggressive and always underfoot when covering the Tennessee beat. He asked that I be removed. That got me a raise.”

Sarah and Marvin West. Marvin was the guest speaker for the June 19 Knox North Lions Club meeting. West took listeners down memory lane and shared stories from a career that took him around the world. He writes a weekly column on Tennessee athletics for the Shopper News. “Better days are ahead for Tennessee football. Their teams have been the focal point of my pro-

fession. I am grateful for having been paid to watch games and report back to readers.” West frequently called attention to his wife Sarah, who was in attendance. He wrote a dedication to her in his latest book referring to her as, among other things, a daily inspiration, the love of his life, his moral con-

science and spelling coach. “Oh, that all men should have such a blessing for a wife. “It appears I may never win a Pulitzer. But I have been highly favored and richly blessed.” The Knox North Lions will not meet the first week of July because of the holiday. They will reconvene at 1 p.m. Wednesday, July 17, at Puleos on Cedar Lane. Lions District Gov. Diane Wilkerson will install new officers. ■

Volleying for volleyball

HPUD adopts summer sewer cap said selling now is a bad idea with real estate values depressed. Liability: Holloway asked whether vendors and preachers who use the corner property get permis-

sion or sign a liability release?” Discussion ensued. “The produce guy” has permission, Cardwell said, as does the Women’s League. The preachers are on state right-of-way.

From page A-1 Soil samples: Holloway suspects a sewer line overflow on her property and asked where to seek a soil analysis. Contract engineer Robert Campbell said Tennessee Depart-

ment of Environment and Conservation (TDEC) has a list of certified private examiners on its website. Excess equipment: Cardwell said surplus equipment including the

vehicle driven by former manager Marvin Hammond was sold by Powell Realty and Auction. “It brought in about $88,000.” Before the meeting, Cardwell said several calls

have come in regarding water standing on Emory Road near Collier. “We’ve been out there” and cannot find a leak. Cardwell, an engineer, suspects the water is run-off from heavy rain.

government Pole congestion at Turkey Creek West Knox developer John Turley has been upset over the city’s recent installation of a traffic camera on Parkside Road at its intersection with Lovell Road at the Turkey Creek development. This is at the eastern entrance to Turkey Creek and only one camera at present is positioned to catch cars turning left onto Lovell from Parkside. Three poles have been erected for one camera, which has marred the visual look of the well-manicured entrance into the most successful shopping area within the corporate limits of Knoxville. In fact, an additional wooden pole has been erected where three poles already stand, creating pole congestion. However, Turley has proven one can influence city hall to back off an unwise and poorly conceived idea. In fact, Turley, through Turkey Creek Land Partners, spends $150,000 a year on maintaining the medians inside Turkey Creek. At a time when the city and council are struggling to enact a stricter sign ordinance, it seems odd, if not inconsistent, that the city is the sponsor of such an ugly scene with the main reason being revenue. This writer visited the site at Turley’s invitation and was surprised to see what had happened. Turley contacted Council member Duane Grieve who sent a strong email urging city officials to back off. In a June 5 email to Mayor Rogero, Deputy Mayors Bill Lyons and Christi Branscom, and Police Chief David Rausch, Grieve wrote: “Folks, the city needs to immediately correct the situation we have caused at the entrance to Turkey Creek!!! (his emphasis). “After much time and considerable cost, the developer (Turley) has spent to move the utility poles and upgrade on traffic light supports, we (the city) have gone and erected a wooden pole for an electric meter for a traffic camera and added two poles for the camera with an exposed line across the lanes of traffic. ... It is amazing with what we are asking our developers to do and then we, the city, erect something like this. ... We, the city, need to practice what we expect others to do. Do let me know when this will be taken care of and who will see the line is put underground.”

Victor Ashe

To the city’s credit and as proof protest can work, especially if you have a council member leading the way, Branscom in a June 14 email to Turley said the line would be placed underground and the extra poles removed. All sides deserve congratulations for raising the issue of the eyesore and then taking remedial steps to correct it. Turkey Creek has been a financial cash cow for the city with literally millions of dollars in sales and property taxes generated annually due to its voluntary annexation 18 years ago. ■ Council elections in September and November will generate slight interest and low voter turnout (less than 10 percent) should be expected. Right now all five incumbents are likely to win re-election to their second and final term on council. No incumbent for mayor or council has lost re-election since term limits were adopted. ■ St. John’s Episcopal Church won a victory at MPC after suffering a setback in its quest to demolish the buildings at 710 and 712 Walnut Street a few weeks ago when the Downtown Design Review Board by a 3-2 vote turned down their request. However, MPC unanimously approved the demolition. The matter can go to City Council if appealed from MPC by Knox Heritage. This is the type of issue which City Council dislikes as it pits historic preservationists against the majority membership of St. John’s, which includes some of Knoxville’s most prominent citizens. Council members feel however they vote they will alienate important voices in the community. And five of them are running for re-election this fall. Council member Duane Grieve will be a member to watch closely as he is an architect, has well-articulated views and has often aligned himself with historic preservation. He has not stated his views publicly. Council members will watch his vote carefully and could be influenced by it if the issue goes to City Council.

Thin field for City Council City Council members Nick Pavlis, Duane Grieve and Brenda Palmer will not be opposed for re-election this year. Nick Della Volpe and Daniel Brown will. All five incumbents are seeking second terms, and it was down to the wire last week as to whether any of them would have opposition. In fact, things stayed so quiet that Election Commission officials were wondering if they’d have to set up early voting. The uncertainty was settled when qualifying petitions from two challengers – Rick Staples, who will oppose Della Volpe in the 4th District, and Charles “Pete” Drew, who will run against Daniel Brown in the 6th District – were validated. So early voting will proceed as usual – probably. “We’d been waiting with bated breath,” said elections administrator Cliff Rodgers. “If we’d had no opposition, we’d have no early voting.

Betty Bean This has been a bizarre one, and now we’ll wait for the candidate withdrawal deadline.” Della Volpe could have two primary opponents if Carl H. Landsden, who didn’t have enough signatures on his petition, follows through with his application to run a write-in campaign. (Causing one to wonder how a guy who couldn’t find 25 voters to sign his petition could expect to win a writein.) Staples, howe ver, could run Rick Staples a vigorous campaign.

Malcolm Shell talks excitedly about Admiral David Farragut while Shopper intern Paul Brooks, at left, ponders the story. The Farragut Folklife Museum has a great exhibit about both Farragut and the Civil War Battle of Campbell Station.

Strong enough Old people worry about kids. Will they be smart enough and tough enough to carry on? Many would answer no. Last week (as we write on pages 8-9 in excruciating detail) we visited the Farragut Folklife Museum with Malcolm Shell and 12 teens. Eyes widened when Shell told about the town’s namesake, Admiral David Glasgow Farragut, who was commissioned in the U.S. Navy at age 9 and by 12 was put in charge of getting a captured merchant ship back to harbor. “Those sailors probably thought they would toss that boy overboard and be on their way,” Shell said, “but Farragut brought the ship to port.” A painting shows Farragut directing a battle from high atop his ship’s mast. Sailors had to scurry up and down the pole to transmit orders, Shell said. It’s no

wonder Farragut became the Navy’s first admiral. He was born at what was then called Campbell Station (now Farragut) and lived to be 69. His most memorable quote: “Damn the torpedoes. Full steam ahead!” We saw a torpedo (a small explosive with air pockets on either side). Shell said the British had seeded a minefield with them. A torpedo blew up under a ship, sinking it “in about 20 seconds.” The other ships looked to Farragut for direction: “Full steam (speed) ahead!” Ships communicated by

Office in the Programs Division under Chief Pete Garza. A 1988 Holston High School graduate, Staples left college at Tennessee State when his father was diagnosed with cancer. He later attended the University of Tennessee majoring in religious studies and sociology. He is a member of 100 Black Men of Greater Knoxville Inc., an organization that mentors young men who come from tough environments. He is an active member of New Hope Baptist Church and vice chair of education with the District Youth Council of the African American Missionary Baptist Church and a resident of the Alice Bell community. Pete Drew has run for office so much that an accurate count of the number of times he’s been a candidate is nigh impossible. He is a former Knox County commissioner and held the District 15 state House seat

for 8 years. He served as a Democrat from 1982-86 and as a Republican from 1986-88, when he was defeated in the General Election by Joe Armstrong. Drew moved to Nashville in 1990 to become a lobbyist for Tennessee Right to Life and then to Chattanooga in 1993, where he ran unsuccessfully for Hamilton County Commission and for the state house. Since returning to Knoxville, he has run, also unsuccessfully, for county commission and the state Legislature. Anthony Hancock picked up a petition to run against Grieve in District 2, but did not return it. The deadline to drop out is noon Thursday, June 27. The deadline to register to vote is Aug. 26. If the challengers and/or a write-in remain in the race, early voting will begin Sept. 4. The primary election is Sept. 24, and the general election is Nov. 5.

Several flags are at the Farragut Museum. I could have spent the day. Campbell Station: Most know it as an exit off I-40. But two years before George Washington was sworn in as president, European settlers had built homes at Campbell Station. Their name: Campbell. (Shell said settlers to the east were named Love; thus, Lovell Road.) Natives were not happy about the intrusion and a couple of Cherokee and Creek chiefs organized a war party of 2,000, marching from the Chattanooga area toward Knoxville (then called White’s Fort). It marched past the fortified Campbell Station at night, with neither the Indians nor the settlers aware of the others’ presence. The Indians massacred settlers at Cavett’s Station (near Walker Springs) and the 11 families of Campbell’s Station took a vote.

Would they stay and fight, should the Indians return, or would they flee? The vote was unanimous. The Campbells and their neighbors stayed. And the Indians returned home another way. Eleven families against 2,000 warriors. Back in the car, I asked two interns: Would you have been strong enough to vote yes? Both answered no. I didn’t argue with them, but I disagree. Nobody today is asked to fight Indians. But we are called to fight for what’s important and to defend what’s ours. Those folks at Campbell Station had walked into a wilderness to build a home and community. Of course, they would stand and fight. And so would my interns. They’re strong enough to protect their families, to defend what’s theirs and to lead our community. They would fight, too, if necessary. But it might be as Gibson Calfee said, “From headquarters, directing a drone.”

Pass it on well Anne McKinney tackles divorce LAW DOGS | Betty Bean “When I’m Ninety-One!” Now that I’m older, losing my hair How the years have flown! Nobody is sending me a valentine Birthdays just make me want to whine But Power of Attorney and Living Will – I signed ’em, now they’re done. I picked who’ll decide What’s right for my hide When I’m ninety-one!! Now that I’ve found you, Can’t let you go; How my love has grown! Every single day you are my valentine So I’ll make sure that you will be fine: Power of Attorney, updated Will. You’re in them; now they’re done. But I will still need you; I will still feed you. When I’m ninety-one! (Lyrics by Anne McKinney; sung to the melody of “When I’m 64” by John Lennon and Paul McCartney) “Pass it on well” is Anne McKinney’s watchword, her signature sign-off in speeches about wills and estate planning and on her YouTube videos. She has become as well known for public speaking as for her expertise in estate planning, tax law and wills and trusts, and she takes a lot of satisfaction in knowing that her audiences are vitally interested in what she has to say. “I give speeches. I talk about wills and taxes and I give motivational speeches. And I sing songs.” She knows that the way she says what she says is what makes her unique, and in recent years, she’s become famous for something else, as well. “The first thing they ask when I walk in the door is ‘What are you going to sing for us?’” She’s been writing and performing parody songs for the Society of Professional Journalists’ annual “Front

Page Follies” for years, and in 2009, she skewered the newly-appointed treasury secretary (who had a bit of a shady history paying his own taxes) with “The Ballad of Timothy Geithner,” sung to the tune of George Gershwin’s “But not for me.” The song got more than 1.3 million hits on her You Tube channel, ladysingsthenews: “They’re writing laws on tax, but not for me; Enforcements to the max, but not for me: With greed to lead the way, I found more shades of gray Than any CPA would guarantee.” McKinney says that performing is therapeutic, something she does at stressful times. “Like when a tax cheat was put in charge of the IRS. I worked at the IRS – the Infernal Revenue Service – and when they audit, they audit every line of your return.” McKinney has a theory

Anne McKinney Photo submitted about why she does what she does. “This is why I’m really glad to be a lawyer – sometimes when people choose a profession, it’s not really a choice. They find themselves down a path and don’t even know how they got there,” she said. “I love math and I love words, but I’ve never been before a jury. What I do have is a talent for taking technical concepts and technical legal issues and boiling them down and helping to explain them to people. “And they tell me about the people they love and what they own, and I help them pass it on well to those they love.” A native of Oak Ridge, she is the daughter of the late Joe and Flo Zenni and has three siblings to whom she is exceptionally close – her brother Marty Zenni, who has a landscaping business in Andersonville; her sister Leila Lott, who has a business called Estate Solutions (and Leila’s husband, George, who is renovating McKinney’s home); and her sister Liza, who heads the Arts and Culture Alliance.

McKinney is a graduate of Duke University and of the University of North Carolina College of Law. Her son, Rand, 11, is named for Ayn Rand, the Russian-American philosopher/author whom McKinney has admired for many years. “I’m a huge Ayn Rand fan,” McKinney said. “When I was in high school, I got mono, and the person I later married, whom I recently divorced, brought me “The Fountainhead,” and I got hooked. There was something about her philosophy that sang to me. When (the independent film) “Atlas Shrugged,” Part I, came out, I called my friends at Regal and said ‘What do I have to do to get that movie seen in Knoxville, Tenn.?’ They told me I didn’t have to do anything, because they’d gotten call after call after call…” McKinney saw the movie with friends with whom she went to dinner afterward to discuss it. She will eagerly await the sequels. “Rand’s philosophy makes a lot of sense to me. I endeavor to live rationally and purposefully and to make sure that, at the end of the day, I can say I’m proud of what I’ve done today,” she said. “If you live a life without purpose, you just float. “The unhappiest people I know are those who deny reality and have no purpose. They wind up with no self-esteem. And if you try to lie and cheat or steal, you’re going to wind up unhappy. Denying the truth has its consequences.” That brings us to the divorce. It came after 43 years of marriage to her middle school sweetheart: “Every year, the Oak Ridger picks a June Bride and Groom of the Year. We were that couple. We got married while still in college. When we were in our late thirties, we started trying to have children. I had

five miscarriages. On Jan. 5, 2002, we had our wonderful son, who is bright and funny and the light of my life. If I had known about my husband’s infidelity, I would not have my son, and that’s something I wouldn’t trade for anything.” The infidelity stung. So what did she do? She threw a party. The day after the divorce decree was finalized, she invited some 200 of her closest friends to a Brave Heart party at the Southern Depot (owned by Marianne Greene, who also has the Foundry at World’s Fair Park). She thanked them for their support and fed them shrimp and beef tenderloin and upside-down wedding cake that had kerplopped down on a hapless groom. She auctioned off her wedding dress and china for charity and counted her blessings, and of course she sang songs.

“Blessing number one was I found out (about the infidelity) when I was 63, not 83, so I still have time to have a good life. And I lost the 35 pounds I’d been trying to lose my entire adult life. And I have the relationship I have with my little boy. And blessing number four is I found out how many people love me. People sent me cards, flowers, bottles of wine. One neighbor walked to my house four nights in a row just to look me in the eye and tell me she loved me. “It’s like having your eulogy without dying. I just had no idea. I believe that some people are seed sowers and some people are reapers. “And I sow seeds. I knew that people come to me 5 years after they heard me speak… What I didn’t realize was that I had sown seeds of friendship too, and they came back to me when I really needed them.”

Greatest ever Volunteer Children with orange interests and undoubtedly high IQs were frolicking in their forum sandbox. Surprisingly, they got semiserious long enough to conduct an informal poll – to determine the greatest ever football Volunteer. Of course Peyton Manning won. Most of the voters had heard of him. Some even remembered his claim to fame, halfway up a ladder, leading the Pride of the Southland band. Others see him on TV from time to time, in Papa John’s and Buick commercials. Some realize he still throws passes and sets records, even at an advanced age. It was a landslide elec-

tion but there were other worthy choices – Reggie White, Doug Atkins, Dale Carter, Eric Berry, Al Wilson, Leonard Little, John Henderson and Carl Pickens. At one time or another, all played well. You do see where I am going? The tailbacks were missing from the ballot. John Majors, Hank Lauricella, Gene McEver, Beat-

tie Feathers and George Cafego are in the College Football Hall of Fame. So is Bob Johnson. He was superb but center isn’t a very glamorous position. Linebacker Steve Kiner is in the Hall. He was outstanding. End Bowden Wyatt was a rare one, Hall of Fame honoree as end and coach. Many great ones merit consideration. Quarterback Condredge Holloway was at least amazing. Tennessee wideouts were like wild geese. They could really fly. Understandably, most of the children have never heard of the greatest guard in Tennessee football history. Bob Suffridge, born

God’s Lamb

Cross Currents

Lynn Hutton

The next day (John) saw Jesus coming toward him and declared, “Here is the Lamb of God who takes away the sin of the world!” (John 1: 29 NRSV) A picture sits on my desk, a place of honor that it has occupied, one way and another, since 1977. It is a black and white photo that appeared on the front page of the small daily newspaper in the southern West Virginia town where I lived and worked for eight years. The photo itself was taken by a friend, and when I went on and on about it, he gave me the original. Over the years, in various offices, many peo-

ple have asked me about it. The central figure in the picture is a lamb. He is standing inside a large metal pipe that is bent and misshapen, but its dark interior is the perfect foil for the lamb’s white fleece. There are barren, stalky weeds growing sparsely in the foreground, catching the light: a nice accent to the darkness of the pipe. Beyond the lamb and the pipe, in the distance, other sheep graze placidly. Maynardville. Bring covered dishes and drinks, along with family documents and photos to share and musical instruments to play. Bring your finest crafts, cakes, pies or breads for prizes.

The lamb is looking straight at the camera, with more interest than fear, I think. I have always had lots of pictures, books and important (to me) pieces of memorabilia in my office. Nothing, however, has sparked as much curiosity as my lamb. Many people have commented on it, asked about it, admired it. When I look at it, I usually see just a lamb. Occasionally, though, I see Facebook or email sherry@ ■ Central High School Class of 1963 is planning its 50year reunion. Any member of the Class of 1963 who hasn’t been contacted by the reunion committee is

in Union County, raised in Fountain City, was pointed in the general direction of maturity while at Central High School. Here is a clue regarding talent: The Bobcats of his time won 33 in a row. He was only 180 pounds but quick and powerful and fiercely determined. He supposedly blocked 29 punts! Suffridge became Tennessee’s only three-time all-American. Three times honored. Only. Ever. As a UT senior, in street smarts if not academic achievement, he won the Knute Rockne Memorial Trophy as America’s lineman of the year. Believe it or not, he finished fourth in Heisman voting. In 1950, the Football Writers of America put Suffridge

on their first all-time team. Robert R. Neyland, the general and coach for whom the stadium is named, said Suffridge was the greatest lineman he ever saw. As at Central High, good things happened in the Suffridge era at Tennessee. The Volunteers won 32 consecutive regular-season games. The Flamin’ Sophomores and the 1938 team went 11-0. The 1939 team didn’t permit a point. Wait, I remember now, that team lost in the Rose Bowl. Suffridge was gimpy and Cafego was really hurt. Southern Cal won, 14-0. In 1940, Suffridge and the then veteran Vols went 10-0 but lost to Boston College in the Sugar Bowl. There were no valid excuses. Bob was ticked. He

didn’t have much experience in losing. On page 18 in my second book, “Legends of the Tennessee Volunteers,” I said: “The proven formula for football fame is one part talent, one part toughness, at least a pinch of smarts and a burning desire to succeed. ... Bob Suffridge was richly blessed. He had more than enough of everything. “From a humble beginning, he fought and scratched every step of the way to the very tip of the mountaintop…. The multitudes cheered.” In this Butch Jones era of renewed respect for tradition, I say we should conduct another “greatest” poll and erect a Bob Suffridge statue. OK to put Peyton in bronze, too.

God’s Lamb, and the whole picture looks different to me. It becomes a parable. When I see God’s Lamb, I see the unconcern of the other sheep, the ewes and rams in the background who seem oblivious to the human who is standing in their field taking a picture of some mama sheep’s baby. That is when I see the lamb as vulnerable, alone, isolated. There are times in Scripture when Jesus – God’s Lamb – is like that little lamb in the old, beatenup pipe: vulnerable, alone, isolated. Just like the other sheep in the photograph, the others – Jesus’ friends and followers – were unaware of the danger gathering around him, unable to understand that he was

a marked man. When John the Baptizer called him God’s Lamb, did no one make the leap to “sacrificial lamb”? Sacrifice of lambs was part of Temple worship! How the disciples could miss the storm clouds is beyond me, but that is 21 centuries of hindsight, I suppose. But there is another aspect of lambs that gives us a different view of God’s lamb, a happier view. Last year, in the early spring, my daughter Jordan and I had occasion to visit the Biltmore House in Asheville. The tour included the vast grounds, including the barnyards. There, we saw young lambs cavorting, running at

full tilt and leaping onto the top of a pen, then bounding off to make another run at it, from a different angle. They moved as if they had springs on the ends of their legs! They were clearly having more fun than the tourists. We watched them with delight, enjoying their exuberant play and laughing at their antics. It was after that experience that I began to wonder how anyone who had been a shepherd – who had seen such frolicking – could ever sacrifice one of those delightful creatures. In much the same way, I wonder how anyone who had met Jesus face to face could have failed to see him for what he was: God’s own Lamb, the Savior of the world.

‘Colossal’ events at Sharon By Cindy Taylor June 9 was an exciting time for members of Sharon Baptist Church. Final plans were being put in place for the church’s Vacation Bible School, which ran June 9-14. Colossal Coaster World was the theme and an amusement park was constructed in the sanctuary and throughout the church. More than 200 children attended the nightly events, which included Bible study, music and games. The church was also abuzz about its new minister of students. Nick Cancemi joined the staff June 9. “I am excited about getting involved in the local community,” said Cancemi. “SBC is right in the middle between several school campuses and I look forward to being active in them all.” Cancemi is not native to Powell but his wife, Kayla, has come home. Kayla is a Powell High graduate who grew up in Sharon Baptist Church. They moved back to Tennessee from Paris, Texas, and are eager to begin their new ministry at the church. The couple met, of all places, in Guatemala while doing mission work there. “The first time I saw Kayla I knew I wanted to spend the rest of my life with her,” said

Nick. “A couple of natural disasters caused our trip in Guatemala to be extended and we had time to build a friendship and eventually a relationship.” Nick has served in ministry on some level since graduating from high school. The opportunity to serve in Kayla’s hometown brings them close to family and to a church that is happy to have them. Kayla will begin teaching at Powell High School this fall. “We loved Texas,” said Nick. “But we are certain God has opened the door here at Kayla and Nick Cancemi. Nick is the new minister of students at Sharon Baptist Church. Sharon for a reason.”

Farragut play day Shopper interns carry on despite flooding rain By Sara Barrett A morning outdoors was scheduled for the third meeting of the Shopper News interns, but Mother Nature threw us a curve ball – or maybe it was a golf ball – and poured rain on the first half of the day. This didn’t deter the group from learning the ins and

outs of golf at Concord Park Par 3, and the rain only made for scenic entertainment during lunch at Lakeside Tavern. After lunch, a visit to the Farragut Folklife Museum with local historian Malcolm Shell shed light on the history of the town and its role in the Civil War.

The group continued with a stop in historic Concord to see the Chota No. 253 Masonic Lodge, its adjacent Concord Masonic Cemetery and the Olde Concord Gallery. Finishing the day with a trip to WBIR studios for “Live at Five at Four” topped off our adventures with a hole-in-one.

The interns were treated to a stop at the beautiful Lakeside Tavern in Concord Park near the water. I had never been there before, so I was glad to walk in the tall doors and see class and elegance, but nothing so fancy that you couldn’t be comfortable. We got our seats and received our menus and bread. After we ordered our food, we had some small talk and were able to talk a The beautiful view from the dining room at Lakeside Tavern in little to our guests Malcolm Concord.

When they served us our meals, our eyes lit up! I had ordered fish and chips, and it was delicious. The scenery was almost as amazing as the food! I could look out the giant glass walls and see the mystifying lake and the grand yachts. We ate till our stomachs could hold no more, and we got to bond a little in the process. All I can say on behalf of every intern is this: if you want to eat somewhere that treats you well with a variety of food, then you should definitely head down to Lakeside Tavern in Concord Intern Taylor Smith shows off a talent during lunch at Lakeside Park today!

Being an upcoming sophomore at Farragut High School, it amazes me to see the spectacular history of FHS at the Farragut Folklife Museum. Farragut High was built in 1904 but burned down in 1906. The school was then rebuilt with brick. Additional improvements would eventually include a baseball field, and an auditorium that was added in 1938. If you’re a student at FHS, you know the auditorium chairs are not very comfortable. Take a

moment to imagine how the students in 1938 felt. There is a chair in the museum from the original auditorium. One of the school’s proudest moments was a visit from Ronald Reagan. The former president chose Farragut High School as one of only five schools in the country he would visit on a tour during his presidency. A photo shows Reagan with then-principal James Bellamy and then-superintendent Earl Hoffmeister.

Madeline Lonas interviews Russell Biven on the set during a break.

Roll, Russell, Roll By Madeline Lonas Once an Alabama Crimson Tide fan, local celebrity Russell Biven now bleeds orange. The co-anchor of “Live at Five at Four” has been all across the South broadcasting and reporting for different newscasts. Biven graduated from the University of Alabama with a major in business. He started his career as a production assistant in the sports department at CNN

in 1991 and worked his way up to writing and producing segments for Sports Illustrated. By 1997, he was promoted to CNN Headline Sports anchor. Biven came to Knoxville in 1999 to be a news anchor with the WBIR Channel 10 News Team. He loves his job because of the rich stories he gets to tell, the amazing people he meets and all of the people on the set.

Biven not only makes his job look easy, but he makes it fun for everyone around him. His quick wit and ability to let things roll off his back help when the microphone isn’t working, no words are on the prompter, or he’s having to listen to people talk to him through an earpiece while he is talking. Perhaps “Live at Five at Four should be called “Lively Russell Biven at Four.”

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers

Jim Bellamy: difference-maker Farragut principal remembered

By Sandra Clark Jim Bellamy could have been a comedian. He taught American history at Powell High School from 1952-66 and was principal at Farragut High School for 24 years, serving until his retirement in 1990. Along the way, he was president of the Knox County Education Association and president of the Knox County Teachers Credit Union. Jim’s wife, Anna Bellamy, retired as vocational supervisor for Knox County Schools. Following his death in 2008, numerous former students wrote to praise him. They used words like “compassionate, dedicated, great leader, utmost respect, mentor, favorite teacher, always willing to listen to students.” One wrote: “His advice kept me from making a big mistake.” Another wrote: “He made a huge difference in the lives of so many.” His off-hand comment has helped me navigate the Scripps organization. “Don’t go downtown,” he said, “unless they call for you.” Our Miracle Maker salute this week is to an old-timer who made a difference. Hope you enjoy the story.

Sitting on the porch This writer interviewed James Bellamy in 2000 for a series on Powell residents called Allan and Hilda’s Back Porch. Here is that story: Jim and Anna Bellamy live in Powell and probably always will. “Powell is a real community,” Jim says. “My friends are here. Besides, my house is paid for.” Jim came to Powell in 1949 when his father, a Methodist minister, was assigned to Powell Methodist Church. Bellamy moved around as a kid. His father served 14 communities in his 42-year career. Bellamy went to school in Virginia. When he got a job, he was asked to teach Tennessee history. He had to learn the subject first. Jim loved teaching history. He remembers one field trip to Blount Mansion. The kids got off the bus, looked around with awe and asked Bellamy, “Do you own this house?” He laughs when he remembers his principal at Powell High, W.W. “Bill” Morris, a former sup er i ntendent of schools who had been beaten for re-election. Morris had returned to Powell High as principal, but he loved to teach history. “He would come into my class and say, ‘You go up and answer the phone.’ Then he would teach my class.”

History of Powell Bellamy tells the story of the founding of Powell Station. It all started at Bell’s Bridge (near the current Weigel’s store on Clinton Highway). Let’s back up even more... After the Revolutionary War, great chunks of land were given to men for their service. They didn’t even know where the land was. In 1787, John Menifee received about 500 acres of land in what is now Powell. He came here in 1787 or ’88 and built a fort on Beaver Creek. Menifee was Speaker of the House of Representatives of the State of Franklin, later Tennessee. His fort was a refuge for the settlers from the Indians, according to a monument erected by the James White Chapter DAR in 1928. Bellamy takes an aside. “They always built on water, later on the railroad, now off the interstate.” Powell has been uniquely situated with a creek, a railroad and now a major interstate. He skips forward: After John Menifee was here for a few years, he sold out to Samuel Bell, the second resident of Powell, and moved away to Kentucky. He later went to Texas. Al Bell, who taught history at Powell High School before becoming social studies supervisor for Knox County Schools, is a descendant of Samuel Bell, Bellamy said. Samuel Bell owned 1,100 acres that went to the top of Copper Ridge. In 1809, the Methodists started camp

meetings at Bell’s Campground. Powell. You’ve got to say it right. Pronounce it “pal.” Everybody from around here knows that. “One day a Yankee came looking for Po-well. Nobody could find it and he left,” Bellamy said. Bellamy skips forward: The railroad came through in 1860. This was the next big change for Powell. Columbus Powell gave the land for the train station and they named it for him – Powell Station. Columbus Powell, who died without known heirs, built and lived in the house on Emory Road where George Gill lives, next door to Allan and Hilda Gill’s place. The first churches in Powell started at Bell’s Campground. The Cumberland Presbyterians came first, about 1832-33. The Methodists and Baptists followed, in the 1880s. Bellamy tries to explain the difference: The Presbyterians were a stately people, but the Cumberland Presbyterians were more evangelistic. They might have “shouted.” The Civil War divided the community because most East Tennesseans sided with the Union even though Tennessee had officially seceded. “We have no connection with Memphis. And we had few slaves,” Bellamy said. “There were more killings in East Tennessee after the Civil War than before,” because of the unrest. Bellamy said East Tennessee might have seceded from the rest of the state like West Virginia, but Andrew Johnson was determined that his home state remain intact.

Knox County Council PTA

Powell changed again after World War II. “Oak Ridge changed Powell,” Bellamy explains. The scientists who came here settled in Karns and Powell, causing a boom in population and an influx of new ideas and people.

Teaching career How much does Bellamy miss teaching? Listen to some anecdotes (which may or may not have been uttered by Bellamy students): “Abe Lincoln was born in a house that he built.” “A horse divided will not stand.” “The death of Thomas Jefferson was a big turning point in his life.” And then there was the kindergarten kid who was asked to tell the class about his soon-to-be-born brother: “They talk about him and then feel my mother’s stomach. I think my mamma ate him.” And Bellamy knows little-known facts: The town of Clinton was originally named Burrville, but changed its name after the treason of Aaron Burr. There’s no word on whether another name change is in the offing. Bellamy has perspective: We’re in a computer world. In 1903 my grandpa died. He had never seen a car or a telephone. In 44 B.C., Julius Caesar died. He was carried by six white horses; in 1904, Teddy Roosevelt died. He was carried by six white horses. When we did this interview, Jim and Anna were all set to travel to Oberammergau, Germany, for the Passion Play. “They only do it every 10 years,” Jim said. “At my age, why wait?”

PAD treatment has Clinton man back on his feet Billy Steve Lowe of Clinton is looking forward to going fishing soon. Lowe hasn’t been able to fish or do many favorite things since being sidelined by leg pain so severe, he could hardly walk.

Billy Steve Lowe is able to walk without pain after treatment for Peripheral Arterial Disease (PAD) in his legs.

“My legs ached so much I could hardly walk anywhere,” says Lowe. “And my toes were numb, so I didn’t have any balance. I got bruises on my neck and head from where I fell trying to walk.” Lowe’s leg pain started gradually about four years ago. He tried to live with it, but eventually the cramps and the numbness in his feet forced him to retire from his job as a bricklayer. “I couldn’t get up on a ladder anymore, because I didn’t know when I might fall,” Lowe remembers. His family physician suspected that Lowe had peripheral arterial disease or PAD. “I had bad circulation. No blood was going to my feet,” explains Lowe.

Home, hearth and fellowship By Cindy Taylor The Courtyards Senior Living of Fountain City opened May 1 and held an open house to meet the community on June 8. The Meadows can house singles and couples who just want a bit of security and memory care with nominal assistance while maintaining their freedom. Activity directors host fun events with minimal structure to allow plenty of choices for engaging the residents. The Orchards, a secure

building located on the same grounds, houses dementia and Alzheimer’s patients. The facility can house 22 residents and currently houses 19. Cindy Winegar serves as director of both facilities. “Chicken Fat is our morning stretching and exercise time, but they don’t like to do it if we call it that,” said Winegar. “We have a lot of ‘movement’ activities to keep residents engaged every day.” Residents also enjoy home-cooked meals and

His doctor referred Lowe to Premier Surgical vascular surgeon Dr. Christopher Pollock. Dr. Pollock says PAD is a common vascular condition that affects many people over age 50. Dr. Pollock “PAD happens when plaque builds up and blocks the arteries outside your heart. We see it a lot in people who smoke, or have diabetes and are overweight.” Although Lowe isn’t diabetic or overweight, he is a longtime smoker. If left untreated, the lack of blood flow can lead to numbness, gangrene, and eventual foot or leg amputation.

“I thought I might lose my foot because of it,” says Lowe. “My right leg had turned purple and the skin was cracked open in between my toes. I was in bad shape.” Fortunately, if PAD is diagnosed early, the condition can often be addressed with lifestyle changes, such as exercise and improved diet. If the disease is more advanced, the blockages can often be addressed with endovascular treatments. In an outpatient procedure called an angioplasty, performed at the Premier Surgical Vascular Center on Papermill Drive, Dr. Pollock used a tiny balloon to open the clogged artery in Lowe’s right leg. He also placed a stent to keep the blood flowing.

Lowe is thrilled with the result. “He did a real good job. My leg feels 100 percent better and my toes aren’t numb now. Walking is already easier.” Dr. Pollock is scheduled to do the procedure on Steve’s left leg this week. He’s looking forward to having the blood flow also restored in that leg. “I’m ready to get treated and then I’m going to go fishing,” he smiles. Visit or call (865) 588-8229 to schedule an appointment for a PAD screening.

helplessness and boredom. “We are constantly looking at what we can do to address those things,” said Winegar. “We nurture the human spirit as well as the body. Of course we follow physician orders, but why reach for a pill if instead we can take a few minutes talking with our residents?” Winegar says staff members take time to sit and listen to residents’ stories. This often alleviates depression and confusion.
