Beaver Creek

at dusk

‘Educator at sea’ Noelle Turner says she “lucked into” teaching marine ecology at Bearden High School. And she “lucked into” two summer stints working on the E/V Nautilus, a ship of exploration that took her to the Mediterranean Sea in 2012 and the Gulf of Mexico in 2013. But at some point, luck had to be superseded by Turner’s personal qualities – her passion for educating and her drive to learn. And her students are the lucky beneficiaries of her adventures.

One of one Sitting in Jim Gombos’ garage is a true treasure, rare as they come, the only one in the world. It’s a restored 1932 Ford Boat Tail Speedster, designed and built specifically for Edsel Ford (Henry Ford’s son) by Edsel and E.T. “Bob” Gregorie. How the car finally got here is a terrific tale.

Fine levied on Creekside Tavern By Sandra Clark The Knox County Commission, sitting as the Beer Board, has levied a $500 fine on JB’s Creekside Tavern, 7428 Clinton Highway, after a routine sting to detect beer sales to minors turned up a couple of jugs of moonshine in a cooler. While there was no evidence

permit for the new store at 7350 Clinton Highway, now under construction. Commissioner R. Larry Smith said, “Thank you for everything you’ve done since becoming manager of the Powell store. We appreciate your community involvement.” Catarina Mateo Pedro, seeking

an off-premises permit for Tienda Latino, 1738 Emory Road, was asked to return next month with an interpreter. She had difficulty communicating in English. And for the second time in three months, the entire Beer Board agenda involved businesses from Smith’s 7th District.

Soloist Rebecca Armstrong will also be on the playbill that night, making her Powell Playhouse debut.

She likes to belt out

songs a la Whitney Houston and Tina Turner, but says there’s much more to her repertoire. “I’m low and I’m high. I’m all over the place, but what I love is gospel, because to me, that’s the only thing that has meaning.” Armstrong, whose mother was a choir director and raised all of her seven children to sing, is herself a mother of three and grandmother to two. She is also a preschool teacher in a Head Start program and does a lot of singing

on the job. “I sing to the kids at school. That’s what we do in the afternoon. We just sing and dance.” Frank Denkins will also be making his first Powell Playhouse appearance. He specializes in the spoken word, and says he has been drawn to poetry all his life. “I didn’t realize it when I was a kid, but since I moved to Knoxville, I moved into it and just followed the Lord.

This 1932 Ford Boat Tail Speedster, designed and built specifically for Edsel Ford, has been restored by Halls resident Jim Gombos. Photos by Jake Mabe The way the car looked when Jim Gombos purchased it in 2004

One of one Gombos restores Edsel Ford’s 1932 Speedster

Sitting in Jim Gombos’ garage is a true treasure, rare as they come, the only one in the world.

Jake Mabe MY TWO CENTS It’s a restored 1932 Ford Boat Tail Speedster, designed and built specifically for Edsel Ford (Henry Ford’s son) by Edsel and E.T. “Bob” Gregorie. How the car finally got to Halls is a terrific tale. The car was built at Ford’s Airframe building and finished in the Lincoln plant, most likely without Henry Ford’s knowledge. Edsel Ford sold the car in 1934 and it is believed to have changed hands twice before it was wrecked. Gombos’ friend John Cox, who ran an auto body shop, rescued it from a junkyard in Connecticut about 1946 (nobody knows how it got there), made a few modifications

Beaver Creek blueway is not a good idea. It’s a great idea.” Beaver Creek is defined as “waters of the state.” It’s not a private lake or pond. But currently the only people with easy access are those whose property adjoins the creek. And when paddlers get on the creek, like Felhoelter says, they must frequently jump out and carry their boat around log and trash jams. If Beaver Creek is a blueway, Knox County Public Works could keep those jams cleared out. Put-in and take-out points with parking and public access

and turned it into a drivable car. Cox sold it, bought it back when the car reappeared in the 1980s and completely disassembled it. No one knew the car was Edsel Ford’s 1932 Speedster until sometime after that, when somebody came down to the shop with a book, “Famous Ford V-8s,” and recognized it. “I kept telling John, ‘Whenever you get rid of this, I want it.’ Because it was something different,” Gombos said. Gombos bought the car in 2004 after Cox passed away. He had a vision to restore it. “I started collecting parts because so much was missing. Much of it was lost when it was wrecked. All four fenders were missing, the aprons, the grill, everything.” Gombos and his wife, Bonnie, retired to Halls in 2006. They fell in love with the area while their daughter was attending UT. “And when we moved down here, we brought the car with us of course and fortunately I met a lot of car guys, excellent fabricators and mechanics.”

The Gomboses received Ford Motor Company’s E.T. “Bob” Gregorie Award for Enduring Design Excellence from Edsel Ford II at a car show on Amelia Island, Fla., earlier this year.

A look inside the car

Jim and Bonnie Gombos with their treasure Barillaro Speed Emporium in west Knoxville handled the restoration. Since no documentation or blueprints of the car exist, Gombos and twin brothers Mike and Jim Barillaro worked from early

1930s photos of the car magnified to life-size. “They became great friends of mine and I was able to go down and work on it with them.” Kirk’s Kustom Upholstery

in Corryton worked their magic on the upholstery. Give or take some downtime, the restoration took five years. “I did as much as I could myself. I did the body work and the paint along with a

friend of mine, Roger Harris.” The car contains an original 1932 Ford chassis and a V-8 flathead engine. And it is painted the car’s original “gun metal dark” color. Gombos said he hunted and hunted to find the color, as all of the period photos were shot in black and white. Finally, he discovered a patch containing the car’s original paint color in one of the cowl vents, which are located on the hood. Jim and Bonnie took the car to a show on Amelia Island, Fla., in March. While there they received the E.T. “Bob” Gregorie Award for Enduring Design Excellence from Ford Motor Company, presented to them by Edsel Ford II. “It’s been fun,” Jim says. “Just being something special. It’s a classic.” Classic indeed, one of one, not another like it in the world.

Visiting Nashville Nashville was the scene of some interesting discussions on July 19. In the early afternoon, the state Supreme Court assembled to hear the third challenge to the current retention selection method of appellate judges in Tennessee. Two lawsuits have been brought by John J. Hooker Jr., 83, Nashville attorney and former Democratic nominee for governor and U.S. senator. Since the entire Supreme Court recused themselves, Gov. Bill Haslam appointed five special justices including two from Knoxville, Russ Dedrick, former U.S. attorney; and Morris Kizer, former city law director. It was a diverse group, with two women and one AfricanAmerican. While one hour had been scheduled for the hearing, it actually lasted almost two hours with only a 10 minute break. In addition to the judges, present in the Supreme Court chambers was former Gov. Winfield Dunn who had defeated Hooker for governor in 1970. Also present was Herbert Slatery, counsel to the governor (also a Knoxville attorney), John Seigenthaler, former editor of the Tennessean and Joe Sweat, former director of the Tennessee Municipal League. The courtroom was full. The major issue seems to revolve around whether the retention style vote of “yes” or “no” on retaining a judge equals an election where a candidate is chosen as outlined in the state Constitution. Special Justice Kizer asked the most questions, as well as the most probing ones, with most directed to the attorneys for the state. Hooker as the plaintiff received very few questions. While it is dangerous to attach much significance to questions asked by the judges, it did appear that the outcome may be a split decision whichever way it goes. However, it is hard to imagine the special court will overturn the current judicial selection method, although Gov. Dunn publicly endorsed the Hooker position and told the media he regretted having signed this retention method into law. Nevertheless, the two justices asking questions seemed to be struggling with the issue. It is interesting to recall that this current system was enacted by Democrats who were concerned that the rise of the Republican Party would lead to a Republican Supreme Court which, in turn, would elect a Republican attorney general.

To date, no woman, no African-American and no Republican has ever held the state attorney general’s office in Tennessee. Later in the day, Seigenthaler hosted a panel discussion on the new book “Coup” by Keel Hunt which details the behind-the-scenes story of Lamar Alexander being sworn into office as governor three days earlier than planned to usher Ray Blanton out of office to prevent more pardons and commutations of state prisoners. This event, which occurred 34 years ago in 1979, is unparalleled in American history. While a few governors have been removed by impeachment, this is the only time a governor was removed by the incoming governor taking the oath of office early with the support of the two speakers, who were both Democrats. Former U.S. Attorney Hal Hardin was on the panel as well. It was his urging that caused Alexander, with the backing of then-Speaker Ned McWherter and Lt. Gov. John Wilder, along with then-Attorney General Bill Leech and Chief Justice Joe Henry, to support and participate in the decision for Alexander to advance the oath-taking by three days. Hardin told the audience that he had credible information from the FBI that Blanton was likely to pardon or commute the sentences of more than 30 inmates on top of the 52 pardons and commutations he had already issued that week. In order to halt it, Blanton had to be removed from office. The quickest way to do that was for Alexander to quietly but quickly take the oath early without Blanton knowing it, which is exactly what happened. This book, published by Vanderbilt University Press, is well-written and hard to put down once you open the first pages. Attending the panel discussion were Nashville Mayor Karl Dean, former Alexander aides Lewis Lavine and Molly Pratt, retired federal Judge Bob Echols, Donna Leech (widow of Bill Leech), Honey Alexander, and Nashville Democratic attorneys George Barrett and Charles Bone. “Coup” should be available soon in Knoxville, but is available now online.

Who needs Tom Ingram? Last week, Knox County Commission selected a trustee. Craig Leuthold got the job, but the winners were Ed Shouse and Stacey Campfield. By taking his name out of consideration to be appointed trustee, Shouse can make the case that he is no courthouse insider when he runs for trustee next year. He’ll be able to say that he not only listened to constituents who thought it unseemly for a sitting commissioner to ask his colleagues for votes, but also to those who wanted a “caretaker” who won’t use the appointment as a stepping stone to frontrunner status in next year’s election. “Don’t nominate me,” Shouse said. “I will take my name out of contention.” He called the action “regrettable, because I think I would do a good job,” and all but announced his candidacy with a reminder that next

Betty Bean year’s county primaries are just 8 months away. “All of us ‘insiders’ can just look toward next year’s primary and let the voters of Knox County settle the issue,” he said. Craig Leuthold is a former county commissioner and former trustee’s office employee who was working for the property assessor’s office when he was appointed trustee. No matter what kind of job he does, he will wear the label of courthouse insider. Which brings us to Campfield. Richard Briggs, who is running hard for Campfield’s state Senate seat, nominated Leuthold. Briggs comes into the senate race with many built-

Drivers Ed: Declining elective By Sandra Clark Half of Knox County’s high schools offer drivers education, while half do not. It’s solely at the discretion of the pr incipa l, Severance

said school board member Kim Sepesi Severance. “It’s one of those things where the communities and families will have to step up,” she said in response to our query. Austin-East, Central, Farragut, Fulton, Gibbs, Halls, Hardin Valley Academy and the L&N STEM Academy offer

in advantages: He’s a pillar of his community. He’s happily married. He’s a respected cardiac surgeon. He’s a veteran and, indeed, a war hero. He has given his time to work in disaster areas and among the medically underserved. He has been a responsive, responsible member of County Commission who has served with far more distinction than controversy. And he is demonstrating considerable fundraising prowess in his senate run. Campfield, on the other hand, is a fame-seeking, serial embarrassment to mainstream Republicans. When Briggs announced early this year, he seemed a cinch to take Campfield out. But so far, Briggs has stumbled over an embarrassing series of piddly gaffes that have given Campfield enough “free” media to cancel out his lack of cash: a silly robo-call glitch by

the program as a student elective, according to supervisor Steve Huettel. Bearden, Carter, Karns, Kelley Academy, Powell, South-Doyle and West do not. Actually, this could change before school starts as principals decide whether to reinstate or drop the program. Knox County will have (at last count) six new high

an independent pollster associated with Briggs, taking money from former Mayor Mike “lobster-to-go” Ragsdale, engaging the services of uber-insider Tom Ingram. All of this handed the controversial incumbent enough ammunition to stand his ground against an opponent who should be wiping the floor with him. And the hits just keep on coming. Craig Leuthold’s father, Frank Leuthold, a longtime and highly-respected former county commissioner, is also Briggs’ campaign treasurer. Perhaps out of loyalty to Frank, Briggs did himself no favors last week when he nominated and voted for Craig for trustee. This is not to say that the younger Leuthold is a bad person, or even a bad choice. But it just looks bad. And Campfield doesn’t need Tom Ingram to tell him exactly what to do with it.

school principals: Central, Gibbs, Carter, Karns, Kelley Academy and Powell. Severance said the school board approves electives, but the principals decide which are offered. “Drivers education is a good resource to the students, and I’ve got one who turns 16 on Aug. 7. But communities know what they need.”

We have robins NATURE NOTES | Dr. Bob Collier


e have a lot of robins. They are all over the place. Three or four of them meet me in the driveway every time I pull in. Six or eight are foraging for worms out in the side yard most any time of day, and a couple of them are still singing to me even in this hot weather. I guess we shouldn’t be surprised, if you do the numbers. They’ve had three months now, since they arrived in the spring, to pair up, nest, and raise a couple of broods, usually of four youngsters each. So for every couple of robins you started with in April, there should be around 10 of them now, in that one single family. That can add up to a lot of robins. The American robin is likely our most familiar songbird, known by nearly everyone who ever looked out their windows. They are instantly recognizable by their red breast, upright stance and their typical stop-look-nab foraging technique. Their loud “cheerily, cheer-up, cheer-up, cheerily, cheerily” song begins at dawn or before and can last on into the evening hours. They continue to sing for us now, and thankfully, will go into the fall. Their name “robin,” originally being a reference to a familiar family member, was given to them by the earliest settlers because the robins’ reddish-brown breast reminded them of the European robins, a similar but smaller and unrelated bird of their homelands. Robins are also one of our most widely-distributed songbirds, nesting from Alaska, across Canada, and all across the United States and into Mexico. They do

migrate. The whole continent full of them shifts southward in the fall, becoming more concentrated in the southern half of the United States, so we have a lot of northern robins that winter here. Although they have fared much better than most species of birds since humans moved in and took over, robins haven’t always had smooth sailing. Back before they became protected by the Migratory Bird Conservation Act of 1929, they were trapped and kept as caged songbirds, like canaries. And, much worse than that, untold thousands of them were shot by southern market hunters. Our most famous observer and painter of birds, John James Audubon, painted a nest of robins as his Plate # 131. In the corresponding commentary about robins in his “Ornithological Biography, Volume 2,” he says “from the middle of November until March, in the southern states, every gunner brings them home by the bagful, and the markets are supplied with them at a very cheap rate.” As to how the wintering robins rated as table fare, Audubon comments that “they are then fat and juicy, and afford excellent eating.” The robins took another big hit when DDT came out. Back when DDT was being sprayed abundantly on trees, crops, ditches and children at play, the large chemical companies were assuring everyone that their products were harmless to everything except their target insects. But then strange things began to happen. In 1954, the city of East Lansing, Mich., home of Michigan State University, began a program

American robin

of spraying DDT on their stately elm trees, under attack by the Dutch elm disease. A year later, when spring returned to the Michigan State campus, people noticed robins everywhere, on the ground, having seizures, dying, dead. And the biologists from Michigan State found out why. They were killed by neurotoxins. The robins had, as usual, been eating their favorite food, earthworms. But the earthworms, after having fed over the previous fall and winter on fallen DDT-laced elm leaves, had become toxic. Only 10 or 12 worms could kill a robin. The city of Bloomfield Hills, Mich., put out a call for anyone who found a dead robin they suspected of having been poisoned to bring it in for study. They had to cut off their request when, after a week, their freezers overflowed with 1,000 dead robins. Whole towns were calling the experts for help, asking why there weren’t any songbirds anymore. And so, in her monumental 1962 book, “Silent Spring,” Rachel Carson wrote that “the story of

Three phases of healing begins about three days after an injury. During this phase, the tears in the tissues begin to accumulate small protein cells called collagen. These cells create a glue that fills the gap in the tissues caused by the tear. This laying down of the collagen glue during the regeneration phase will take six to eight weeks to complete. After this phase, no more glue will be laid down. The glue is what will become scar tissue. When the glue is making scar tissue in the injured area it is being laid down in a weaker more irregular pattern and not in the stronger, crisscross consistent pattern. After all the glue is in place and the scar tissue has been formed, the healing process is still not yet complete. Phase Three, Remodeling: The final phase is the remodeling phase. This phase takes up to 12 months. During this phase, the irregular pattern of scar tissues will line up in the proper direction to create a better quality of healing. Therefore, remodeling is a motion-dependent phase that governs the quality of healing in the tissues. Next time: Three problems with healing

ologist has noted that on its last day in the nest, a single young robin, by then the same size as its parents, will eat 14 feet of earthworms! Earthworms? They love them. And just so that you know, some serious study has gone into resolving the debate as to how the robins find the worms. It turns out that they find them by sight, peering closely with that cocked eye, rather than hearing them, smelling them, feeling vibrations, or whatever. Then, in late summer, the robins do an unusual thing: over a couple of months, they switch their diet from almost all meat (worms and caterpillars) to almost all fruit. They eat fruits and berries most of the winter. They go for tree fruits, like apples, serviceberries, hackberries and mulberries, as well as grapes, blackberries and pokeberries. But a few of those is a small price to pay for having our faithful, familiar, friendly kinfolks, the robins, living with us day by day. Cheer up!

By Dr. Donald G. Wegener Many times when a person goes to the chiropractor he or she is under the impression that a bone is out of place and pinching a nerve. He or she believes that if the bone is put back in place the problem will be permanently fixed. This could not be any farther from the truth. On most occasions, the pain is Dr. Wegener a result of injury to the soft tissues of the body. Soft tissues are basically everything but the bone. This includes muscles, ligaments, tendons, joint capsules, discs, nerves and fascia. After being injured, soft tissues heal by a relatively complex process, involving three phases. Phase One, Inflammation: Normal soft tissues have a crisscross pattern that gives them strength in all directions of force. When soft tissues are torn, their fibers are disrupted in a manner similar to the tearing of a piece of paper. Once these tissues have torn, they will heal in three distinct phases. The first step is the acute inflammation phase, also known as swelling. This phase and swelling will last for about 72 hours after an injury. During this phase, the tissues continue to swell causing more pain and discomfort to the injured area. Phase Two, Regeneration: The second phase of healing, called regeneration,

the robin might serve as the tragic symbol of the fate of all the birds” in our chemical-soaked world. Her book, plus the growing public alarm at all the dead and missing birds, turned the tide, at least to the extent that, in 1972, DDT was finally banned in the United States and Canada. But back to our robins: they are alive and well and as familiar a part of our daily lives as kinfolks. They serve as a standard for bird study: other birds are “about the size of a robin” or “a little smaller than a robin.” Birds sing songs “like a robin with a sore throat” (scarlet tanager) or “like a robin with voice lessons” (rose-breasted grosbeak). You know them at a glance by their robin-red breast; they lay robin’s-egg-blue eggs. And they are nothing if not industrious. Over the two-week span that the young birds are in the nest, the two parent robins will make more than 300 feeding visits to the nest a day, ultimately feeding more than three pounds of worms and caterpillars to those hungry mouths.

deeds. Feel the passion. Pass catchers have long thought of Tennessee as Wide Receiver U. The hitters think linebackers are the body and soul of Big Orange tradition. Coach Jones, surprisingly aware of the past, could drop a few clues and cause Dillon Bates to wonder if or where he will fit among the all-time greats. The linebackers video has Al Wilson on the front cover. That is appropriate. He was a big-time winner, highly motivated, exciting leader, vicious tackler. Wilson, asked what it takes to be a linebacker, said, “You got to be a little bit crazy.” Frank Emanuel, all-SEC,

all-American, Hall of Fame, talks about the pride in having played at Tennessee, the thrill in running through the T, the importance of 1965 in the Doug Dickey restoration. Emanuel said UCLA in Memphis and the dogfights with Alabama were his favorite games. Paul Naumoff contributes a vivid description of one of most memorable hits in Tennessee football history, the head-on collision with Larry Csonka, fourth quarter near the 1966 Gator Bowl goal. Naumoff won that one. He said Csonka more than got even in the NFL. Kiner, twice SEC defensive player of the year, provides perspective on the

however, which wander off into imagination and supposition. It was a huge undertaking, and quite well done, produced by Roma Downey (of “Touched by an Angel” fame). Some of it was hard to watch; there are harsh stories in the Bible, but some of it was delightful. I particularly liked the actor who played Jesus. It is one of the few portrayals of our Lord which made him seem equally human and divine. This Jesus smiled and laughed! There was one particular scene, however, that caught my fancy. The dialogue was not biblical, but it struck a chord with me. It reverber-

ates in my head: a challenge, a call, a command. Simon bar-Jonah (later to be known as Peter) was pushing off from the shoreline in his fishing boat. Jesus wades into the water, catches up to the little boat, and climbs in. Simon is nonplussed when Jesus says, “Come, Simon, and follow me.” “What are we going to do?” Peter asks, obviously thinking in the immediate short-term. Jesus looks at him intently, with a thoughtful expression in his eyes, and smiles. “Change the world,” he answers levelly. Simon looks at him – confused, interested, intrigued, bewildered. And that is exactly what

they did. All the world-changing work did not get done in the three years the little band of disciples spent together. But what Jesus and his followers started continues today. I saw it every day I worked at the Volunteer Ministry Center in Knoxville. I saw it in action just the other night at Vacation Bible School. I hear it (and feel its continuing call upon my life) every Sunday in worship. I see it in the kindness of strangers, in the laughter of children, in the enthusiasm of youth, in the calm, patient eyes of the aged. Sometimes we think there is no way we can change the

world; there is no way we can make a difference. But I assure you that someone is always watching you, and you are making a difference – for good or ill. Jesus the Christ calls each of us to do or to be something. Most likely something beyond what we think we can manage. Or what we know how to be or do. Or what we have the impetus to do, or the energy to do, or the expertise to do. Jesus calls us anyhow. He calls us to do something in our own little arena, or in some place we haven’t even heard of yet, half a world away. He calls us to do something. Something like changing the world!

Is Bates a replica of Kiner?

When Dillon Bates committed to play 2014 Tennessee football, I thought of Steve Kiner. Rangy linebacker from Florida. Hitter with a big heart. Sideline to sideline speed. Exceptional coverage skills. Bright future. Kiner was about all you could ask of a Volunteer linebacker, tough on Alabama, all-Southeastern Conference, all-American, College Football Hall of Fame. Bates is one of the best prep prospects in the country. He may grow up to be awesome. That he chose the Vols was no surprise. His dad, Bill, was a Tennessee safety. His mom, Denise, was a

Once while Jesus was standing beside the lake of Gennesaret…he saw two boats there at the shore of the lake; the fishermen had gone out of them and were washing their nets.

Best days by Craig Puki and LeMont Holt-Jeffers are on display. A visit with Dale Jones is among the video highlights. He talked about the Mike Shula swing pass he batted and intercepted. He talked about the blitz package used against Vinny Testaverde. He said it was an incredible experience to play for Tennessee. It is entirely possible that Coach Jones told Dillon Bates about some of this linebacker stuff. It’s a great sales pitch.

a small West Virginia town. She went on to receive a degree in art education at Eastern Kentucky University, but was frustrated with her classes there, finding that they offered little in the way of artistic creativity. While she did enjoy design classes and subtractive sculpture, she went on to a career in sales and marketing in Chicago. Life changes brought her to East Tennessee, where she worked as director of development for Saint Joseph School off Cedar Lane. In 1990 she met Jit Koh, a neighbor in her Fourth and Gill neighborhood, and the couple married in 1993. They soon moved to a small 19th century tenant farmer’s cabin in New Market. While they were renovating, restoring and adding on, Ruth began to notice the beauty around her new home. Gradually she discovered the inspiration that she’d missed in college, and in 1998, she began painting seriously. Her paintings have been featured in numerous juried exhibitions, and can be found in galleries from Louisville to Atlanta, including The District Gallery on Kingston Pike in Knoxville. She’s also exhibited and sold work at the Knoxville Museum of Art’s Artscape Auctions. “Here on our farm, I am fascinated with moments when a cloud is just so, and then shape shifts before my eyes,” she muses. “If I take the time to look, I see the interplay of light on water, distant views of neighbors’ farms and the primordial quality of the woods.

“My art is about preserving moments in time. Clearly, living here in this environment influences my painting. Every day is different. Every moment is fleeting.” Ruth and Jit treasure their rural home and are eager tour guides, taking guests to visit their chickens, grape arbor, pond and old barn. (They’re often accompanied by their dog Fred, an exuberant shepherd mix who wags his tail with his entire body.) The main room of their house features floor-to-ceiling windows, giving them the opportunity to drink in the views every day. Jit, who teaches math at The Webb School of Knoxville, admits he has a long commute, but it’s worth it for all the beauty and quiet. When asked how she starts a painting, Ruth re-

plies, “I really don’t know. Sometimes I mix up some paint and I just start! I don’t know where it’s going to end up. It’s all intuitive. “If I force it,” she continues, “it’s a bad painting.” She likes it best when she just goes with the flow. “Sometimes you just know when you’ve nailed it. You know it’s time to stop.” Ruth doesn’t tailor her art to what she thinks people might buy. “The hardest thing for me,” she says, “is to not paint what other people

are painting. I’m looking for a market that wants my work.” Currently helping to care for her 95-year-old mother, she’s channeling her feelings into a new series of abstracts.

Shopper News Presents Miracle Makers

An ‘Educator at Sea’

By Betsy Pickle

Noelle Turner says she “lucked into” teaching marine ecology at Bearden High School. And she “lucked into” two summer stints working on the E/V Nautilus, a ship of exploration that took her to the Mediterranean Sea in 2012 and the Gulf of Mexico in 2013. But at some point, luck had to be superseded by Turner’s personal qualities – her passion for educating and her drive to learn. And her students are the lucky beneficiaries of her adventures. “It’s a fantastic experience, and it’s so usable in the classroom,” says Turner. From June 10 through July 4, Turner was an Educator at Sea on the Nautilus Exploration Program’s first two legs in the Gulf of Mexico and the Caribbean Sea. The expedition’s purpose is mapping hydrocarbons and studying the impacts of the BP oil spill on deep-water corals. Last year she learned about mud volcanoes in the Mediterranean. The 20 educators selected for this year’s program serve as communicators, sharing information from project scientists and engineers with student audiences of varying ages at select aquariums and planetariums via the Internet. “We can’t see them, but we hear them through a headset,” says Turner. “They can see and hear us. They ask us questions, and we answer them.” The educators spend eight hours a day, four hours at a time, “on watch” in “the Van,” a small building on the deck of the ship where panels and screens display what’s going on deep below the ocean’s surface with the two ROVs – remotely operated vehicles – Argus and Hercules. During missions, the educators answer questions posted through “Your job is to try to communicate the science from the operators without interfering with delicate operations,” says Turner, who as a returnee was selected to be a lead educator. Another duty is to examine photos and video taken during dives and select ones to post on the website. “I can show my kids these clips and these scientists,” she says. The Exploration Vessel Nautilus is the ship of Robert Ballard, oceanography professor at the University of Rhode Island, discoverer of the wreckage of the RMS Titanic and founder of the Center for Ocean Exploration and Archaeological Oceanography. Turner found out about the Nautilus’ educator program when she attended

the National Marine Educators Association’s 2010 annual meeting, which was in Gatlinburg. She had taught biology and other science classes at Bearden since 1999 and had taught at Halls High School for a year before that, but she was relatively new to teaching marine ecology and wanted to get more familiar with it. “On a whim, I applied for this Educator at Sea thing,” she says. “It’s a good thing I didn’t know the kind of people who were applying for it because there were some really great people that applied. Bechtel’s one of the sponsors and is down the road in Oak Ridge, and I think they wanted people from this area as well. I was lucky enough to interview and get to go.” Turner was born in Knoxville and lived here until the start of 9th grade, when her family moved to Blount County. After graduating from William Blount High School, she went to the University of Tennessee, where she earned her bachelor of science in biology and her master’s in education. She had been tempted to become a veterinarian but decided to be a biology teacher instead. “I love to learn,” she says. “And

Noelle Turner stands in front of the ROV Argus, a vehicle that can document discoveries deep below the ocean’s surface. I wanted to do something – this sounds dorky – where I felt like maybe I could help somebody. “I’m kind of an introvert, but if there’s something that is important to me, it’s education: teaching people how to learn, helping people, caring for people. I feel like education improves life, whether it improves your understanding or whether it helps you with job skills. I think both job skills and understanding other people are important.” Turner teaches biology to 9th and 10th graders and marine ecology primarily to 11th and 12th graders. “I’ve had classes where half of the kids wanted to be marine biologists, and then I’ve had classes where none of them were interested in marine biology.” One of the great things about the

Knox County Council PTA

Educator at Sea program, Turner says, is that she works with people who do all kinds of jobs that she can talk about with her students, opening their eyes to all kinds of possibilities. “Understanding our world, even if it’s not our particular interest, makes a difference. I might have expected to be doing biology in the Smoky Mountains with a scientist looking at salamanders, but I never in my whole life would have expected that I would live on a ship with a crew and be going to the training sessions, sitting there talking to Dr. Ballard, who was one of the people that helped discover the Titanic. “Not in a million years would I ever even have dreamed that that was a possibility for me. You just never know what wonderful thing is going to happen to you.”

Moms: You Don’t Have to Live with Pregnancy Hemorrhoids Kimberley Thomas calls it the “bad surprise of childbirth” that her mother never told her about. “I didn’t know anything about hemorrhoids until I had my first baby eighteen years ago,” explains Thomas. “I pushed wrong during labor, and immediately afterwards, the nurse noticed a cluster of hemorrhoids. It was a surprise –a BAD surprise.” Hemorrhoids are swollen veins in the anal canal, caused by too much pressure on the veins in the pelvic and rectal area. About half of Americans suffer from hemorrhoids by age 50. They are especially common during pregnancy and childbirth. Thomas treated the hemorrhoids with over-the-counter medications, but they never completely went away.

“They didn’t always hurt, but they were always there,” she remembers. “I thought it was just something I had to live with because I’d had a baby.” After witnessing a friend’s painful experience with hemorrhoid surgery, Thomas was reluctant to consider surgery. “My friend was out of work for six weeks. I watched her suffer,” says Thomas. It was Thomas’ OB/GYN who finally convinced her to seek treatment. She referred her to surgeon Dr. C. Stone Mitchell at the Premier Hemorrhoid Treatment Center. “She said, “I’m Dr. Mitchell

the next six months, Dr. Mitchell used Infrared Coagulation to shrink Thomas’ hemorrhoids. “It’s a quick, non-surgical treatment that uses a small probe with short bursts of warm light,” explains Dr. Mitchell. “This method doesn’t require any cutting or stitches and is “I thought [hemorrhoids used to treat the majority of pawere] just something I tients we see here at the Premier Hemorrhoid Treatment Center.” had to live with because Although initially nervous I’d had a baby.” about the procedure, Thomas was surprised about how fast –Kimberley Thomas, and painless the treatment was. Hemorrhoid Patient “It doesn’t hurt at all, it was just a little warm,” she says. “It going to send you to someone who took a week or so to heal afterwill take care of you,” remembers wards, but I feel so much better Thomas. “And Dr. Mitchell and now!” his staff were wonderful.” And Thomas says Dr. MitchDuring several office visits over ell and his staff put her at ease.

“They were super nice and very discreet. The nurse held my hand and we told jokes during treatments.” Since her treatment, Thomas has sent several girlfriends to Dr. Mitchell. “I tell other moms, you shouldn’t be embarrassed or scared to have your hemorrhoids treated. There IS help, you don’t have to suffer!” Hemorrhoids affect nearly 10 million American men and women. Don’t suffer in silence.
