Pittmans donate photo

Charles and Kathy Pittman have been residents of Sharps Chapel since October of last year and brought more with them in the move from Mississippi than just their friendly smiles. On March 13, the Pittmans parted with a signed photo of Charles with Roy Acuff and Wilma Lee Cooper, taken backstage at the Grand Ole Opry in 1982 after Charles appeared as a guest on the Opry. Roy Acuff Union Museum and Library representative J.V. Waller was on hand to receive the photo, which will hang in the museum along with the other memorabilia from Roy Acuff, who was born in Union County. See Cindy’s story on page 3

The ‘lure’ of art When was the last time someone invited you to go “scanoeing?” Never? Well, stick around Union County until the weather warms up and Barry Moulton may just be looking for company on the water. Moulton is a talented woodworker and woodcarver who has been building what he calls scanoes for a few years. The vessel is similar to a canoe with characteristics of a scarab; hence, scanoe.

Baseball starts strong The Horace Maynard Middle School varsity baseball team is starting the season off as every coach’s dream team. Five games in and the Red Devils are 5-0 and have already played two district games against tough teams. To date, the team has not allowed more than three runs in a game by an opposing team.

Toppins out, Carter in Toppins: ‘They don’t know what they’ve done’ By Cindy Taylor Three directors in one school year. That must be some kind of record. The Union County school board abruptly fired interim director Marilyn Toppins on March 8, replacing her with Dr. Jimmy Carter, a longtime veteran of the system. School board chair Brian Oaks drove the unanimous decision which passed without discussion. Afterward, Oaks alleged financial mismanagement by Toppins. Since Toppins was back in the classroom and unavailable for comment, we opted not to publish his specific charges. Oaks said Carter, an elemenatry education supervisor, was his first choice from day one. Other board members were complimentary of Toppins, and after the vote Oaks thanked Toppins for her hard work and long hours. She worked as interim su-

perindent at her teacher’s pay. Board member David Coppock said, “Carter has all the credentials, but I would have been happier if this had waited until the end of the school year. I don’t have any idea why Oaks was in such a hurry, but our chair made the recommendation, so I voted with him.” Board member Mark DeVault said Toppins had done an excellent job. “But we knew when she was put in that she wanted it to be temporary. I am thankful for what Marilyn has done, and I hope Dr. Carter does a good job.” The school board previously suspended Director of Schools Wayne Goforth who has sued the board and individual members. Goforth is represented by Knoxville attorney Herbert Moncier. On advice of board counsel Mary Ann Stackhouse, the job title was changed from “interim director” to “temporary director.” Carter will serve as temporary director until “the situation with Goforth is resolved,” said Oaks. A tearful Toppins said she

“knew this was coming” for a couple of days. “I don’t think the board members have any idea what they’ve done.” Toppins thanked “all the staff and people in our organization that have gone above and beyond to work with me and with this board.” Toppins said she never intended to go after the permanent top job and that she will retire following the 2012-2013 school year. Asked if he was expecting the

appointment, Carter was noncommittal. “Not particularly,” he said. “This is a challenge and I look forward to it. I work for the school system just like Marilyn has, and I think we both have the best interests of the students at heart.” Carter and wife Melissa, who also works for Union County Schools, approached Toppins after the meeting but were met with a cold shoulder.

Jail costs expected to double By Cindy Taylor

The Union County Commission spent much of its March meeting talking about budgets and upcoming expenditures. According to Ann Dyer, expenses for the jail are projected to more than double in 2013. These costs go up as the inmate population goes up. Medical and food costs for inmates are definitely on the rise. “The law says that when we incarcerate them we become their keeper and their health provid-

er,” said Sheriff Junior Loy. “We must provide inmates a clean place to dwell, hygiene products and medical care.” One expense that bugged commissioners was a dental bill of more than $3,000 for a single inmate. According to Jail Administrator Rodney Minor, an inmate required the services of an oral surgeon to repair a broken jaw. “Our officers were attempting a DUI arrest when the suspect passed out and fell face down,” said Minor. “The suspect

refused EMS on site, then later complained of jaw pain and needed treatment after the arrest. All medical is contracted by (County Commission), and we have to use who they contract with.” For informational purposes only, Mayor Mike Williams requested that Dyer also present budget projections to the commission to propose consideration of moving money from the general fund into debt service to cover anticipated debt for the coming year.

The amount in debt service has gradually decreased from $2,214,072 in 2007 to $1,421,231 in 2011, while the general fund has increased from $1,334,914 to $3,170,461 during the same time period. It was noted and discussed that 89 percent of the county debt was school-related while the other 11 percent was jail/ courthouse. The Sheriff Committee reported that a recent tour of the jail revealed 19 deficiencies, which in-

cluded overcrowding and understaffing. Jail Inspector Robert Cain said that Union County must show that action is being taken to correct these deficiencies. The jail will be reinspected March 23. Deputy and fleet manager Jeff Sharp informed the commission that all six police cars currently being equipped should be on the road within the next three weeks. Several road signs have now been replaced throughout the county. The commission discussed the continuing issue of aluminum road signs that are being destroyed and stolen, and cost for replacement with plastic is still being considered. Preservation Union County requested a resolution to accept walking trails in Sharps Chapel, mainly around Oak Grove School. This was approved by the commission. Attorney David Myers was approved to serve as delinquent tax attorney for Union County and will be compensated at a rate of 10 percent of all delinquent taxes collected. This percentage will come from delinquent taxpayers, not out of county funds. In order to aid seniors and residents with disabilities, the rear door to the courthouse will be kept unlocked for all County Commission meetings to allow access to the elevator.

By Cindy Taylor In the fall of 1899, Claiborne National Bank was chartered. Its first president, George Montgomery, guided the bank through many challenges, and the bank prospered. In October 1919, the bank changed its name to Claiborne County Bank and retained this name for almost 70 years until First Claiborne Bank was established. The most

recent transformation occurred in 2000 as the bank became First Century Bank. In the fall of 1936, Glenn Yoakum began his career at the bank as a teller and eventually took over the reins of the bank. His daughter, Eleanor Yoakum, now serves as board chair. Brad Davis has been an assistant vice president and branch manager at First Century Bank for three years.

“We are still locally owned by the Yoakums,” said Davis. “We are much friendlier than many banks I visit. First Century is the only bank in Union County that offers insurance as well as a 24/7 automated service.”

Customers can take advantage of full financial services such as loans, checking and saving accounts, safety deposit boxes and insurance along with many other services. “We have one-stop shopping,” said Davis’ assistant

From benefits to booths By Cindy Taylor The March meeting proved to be a busy night for the Plainview Board of Mayor and Aldermen. The board once again discussed requiring new businesses to purchase a city license before opening inside the city limits. This would be in addition to any licensing requirements established by Union County. The Plainview City Recorder will begin research on the legalities and state requirements if any. Wes Holmes from Employee Benefits Specialists gave a brief presentation regarding benefits for city employees that would include cancer insurance, life insurance and disability. Information was distributed to employees. The board approved registering for a $500 booth at the Oct. 6 Union County Heritage Festival to distribute information about the city. The board also approved a door prize dona-

tion to the April 21 Art in the Park festival. Three members of the Luttrell PTO asked for money to help restore the Luttrell ball park concession stand. The PTO has raised $800 so far but needs $2,000 for electrical materials to replace the existing 40-year-old wiring. The board agreed to support the PTO with a donation of $200. Residents were concerned that another publication in Union County had stated incorrectly that landowners in Plainview had voting rights in the city even if they did not reside on the land. The board asserted that this is not the case. In order to vote in a city election in Plainview, you must be a resident living inside the city limits. Elmer and Deb Munsey sent a thank-you note to the city which was read aloud by Mayor Gary Chandler. The note specifically addressed the tree

While chiropractic treatment may be most readily associated with back pain, the fact is that the treatment is also proven effective for discomfort in other parts of the body. One of those areas is the wrist. The misalignment of vertebrae can compress nerves that emanate from the spinal cord and lead to an extremity like the wrist. It’s not uncommon for a chiropractor to hear a complaint from an office worker coping with arm and wrist pain, numbness or weakness. The discomfort could severely impair her ability to do her job. The actual cause of the problem could be stress put on the spine by a posture issue. Long hours hunched over a keyboard or desk could aggravate one of the joints in the back. The resulting inflammation of muscles and ligaments that surround that joint could compress a nerve or nerves and cause the worker’s painful condition. In this case, chiropractic treatment may include a spinal adjustment to relieve the nerve compression, ice packs to ease soft-tissue inflammation and a regimen of exercises and stretches. If you suffer with any sort of nagging, chronic discomfort or pain, talk with a chiropractor to see if chiropractic treatment could help you.

Pittmans donate Roy Acuff photo Charles and Kathy Pittman have been residents of Sharps Chapel since October of last year and brought more with them in the move from Mississippi than just their friendly smiles.

On March 13, the Pittmans parted with a signed photo of Charles with Roy Acuff and Wilma Lee Cooper, taken backstage at the Grand Ole Opry in 1982 after Charles appeared as a guest on the Opry. Roy Acuff Union Museum and Library representative J.V. Waller was on hand to receive the photo, which will hang in the museum along with the other memorabilia from Roy Acuff, who was born in Union County. “I didn’t get discovered at the Opry,” said Pittman in his booming bass voice. “They never did call me back.” The Pittmans moved to Sharps Chapel to be closer to children and grandchildren, who live in Knoxville. They may not be from around here, but they are destined to fit right in. “We came from a town about this size, and when we saw that there was a Roy Acuff Museum here, we decided y’all needed this picture,” said Pittman. “We’ve been here since October, and we’re still looking for the mall in Sharps Chapel.” ■

Tastes great, less filling!

For the fourth time, Maynardville Utility District has received the award for the best tasting water in TAUD Region 3 in Tennessee. Utilities judged included Jellico, Oak Ridge, Clinton, LaFollette, Jacksboro, Harrogate and Tazewell. Water from each area was taken to the judging center where judges tasted unmarked water from all cities and declared once again that Maynardville was best. “We’re proud of being chosen the best tasting water again,” said City Manager Jack Rhyne. “We work hard to keep it clean and tasting great.” ■

Standing ‘broom’ only

It appears that Halloween is not the only season when strange phenomena occur, at least not in Union County. Inanimate objects have been reported to stand alone or on end during the past few days, and the Spring Equinox has been credited for the unusual happenings. Employees at Maynardville Utility District were shocked when Elizabeth Cox placed a broom in the middle and the broom remained standing unassisted for hours on the morning of March 12. Cox also stated that she and her daughter had tried the trick at home with an egg and were successful in getting that to stand on end as well. “I saw this on Facebook and had to try it,” said Cox. Co-workers jokingly claimed that the broom stood alone until Cox needed a ride home. Contact Cindy Taylor at brentcindyt@ gmail.com.

The ‘lure’ of art When was the last time someone invited you to go “scanoeing?” Never? Well, stick around Union County until the weather warms up and Barry Moulton may just be looking for company on the water.

DOWN-home UPdate Moulton is a talented woodworker and woodcarver who has been building what he calls scanoes for a few years. The vessel is similar to a canoe with characteristics of a scarab; hence, scanoe. Moulton doesn’t have any completed scanoes right now but plans to start building more very soon. But, he also dabbles in

many other art forms – one that especially catches the eye of unsuspecting fish. “I fished from when I was real young, and one day just looked at a lure I was using and thought that I could make that,” said Moulton. Moulton was 15 at the time and started asking other men who knew a little about woodworking how they started their craft. “I didn’t have any money to buy lures when I was a kid,” said Moulton. “But I wanted plugs like I saw on TV. I just started messing around with making lures and to my amazement started catching fish with them.” In no time Moulton was making all of his own fishing lures and has done so ever since. He has given away a lot of those lures but sold only a few. “This isn’t a craft you

Moulton starts with a flat piece of wood, cuts out the shape of the lure he wants to make, and then carves, glues, paints and shellacs until the lure looks as professional as those you can buy in any shop. Every lure takes about 48 hours to complete,

counting the nine coats of shellac that must dry in between coats. Moulton uses knives and a Dremmel tool to complete his lures and tests every lure he makes to be certain it will bait and catch fish. Bet people would be lining up for that testing job if he offered it.

Cuonzo Martin can coach TALES OF TENNESSEE | Marvin West

I

am from the group that thought the end of Bruce Pearl was the end of Tennessee basketball as we had come to know and love it. We were right. What we now have is very different. There is less carnival atmosphere and more emphasis on basics, far more emphasis on defense and toughness, physical and mental. There are not many quips. There is more discipline. Cuonzo Martin has captured my undivided attention. The man can coach. It took awhile but the team accepted his principles and became more like him. There were no cartwheels and fewer disco strobes

but you could see and feel the fierce desire to win. My first inclination is to say Cameron Tatum led the remarkable transition. But so did Jeronne Maymon. And Trea Golden. And Skylar McBee. And Jordan McRae. Jarnell Stokes was the prize apple that dropped from a tree and filled the basket. The convergence of strange circumstances, high school ineligibility, an available scholarship and an obvious opportunity, changed several lives. I’m not sure Tennessee basketball has been previously blessed with such a miracle. Stokes brought a lot, grew a lot, did a lot and helped others do what they did.

Think about it CROSS CURRENTS | Lynn Hutton On the way to Jerusalem Jesus was going through the region between Samaria and Galilee. As he entered a village, ten lepers approached him. Keeping their distance, they called out, say, “Jesus, Master, have mercy on us!” When he saw them, he said to them, “Go and show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were made clean. Then one of them, when he saw that he was healed, turned back, praising God with a loud voice. He prostrated himself at Jesus’ feet and thanked him. And he was a Samaritan. (Luke 17: 11-16 NRSV)

I

never thought I would say that I en circumstance, but … well, just knew how Jesus felt in any giv- let me tell you the story.

There are so many pleasant memories. There was the Yemi outburst, an unforgettable evening by Swiperboy, Josh Richardson’s improvement and surges of energy and rebounds by Dwight Miller. McBee could always shoot but effort made him into a very good defender. McRae discovered there are two ends to the floor. Golden eventually realized his performances had the power to determine outcomes. Maymon was a powerful force, day after day after day, the MVV. Ironic that he achieved excellence doing exactly what Marquette wanted him to do before he transferred. Kenny Hall’s fall from grace was three ways hurtful – team, self and those who care. The Tatum story is about coaching genius. Despite offensive inconsistencies, Martin kept the fifthyear senior in the starting lineup because he played “the right way.” Cameron worked on defense, hit the boards, generally protected the ball and looked in earnest for the open man.

Tatum understood. “Having Coach Martin stand by me like he did, to keep having confidence that I could help this team, that was huge for me.” Golden’s inconsistency required far more instruction but Martin never gave up on the sophomore guard. The coach was rewarded with great effort and clutch points. These Volunteers exceeded expectations because expectations were erroneously hammered down. The Vols were never 11th in SEC talent but they certainly weren’t second, even after Stokes arrived. What they were was uncertain. New coach, new system, new culture, new approach – change forced a learning period. It was tedious. The team was very good in Hawaii and awful at other times. Think Athens and the AP evening. The Vols must have been very confusing for opponents. Sometimes they had more turnovers than goals. They were sometimes surprisingly effective. That they developed individually and collectively is coaching. The will to compete, the desire

I was working the Refuge desk one day. One of our neighbors (of the feminine persuasion), who is experiencing homelessness, came in and asked for a haircut voucher. Her hair was thick and long and seemed to have a mind of its own. Because we have a mutually beneficial agreement with a beauty school in town – we provide heads for their students to practice on, and our neighbors get free haircuts – I wrote a haircut voucher, called the beauty school to make sure they had an opening and sent her on her way. The desk was busy as usual, and I thought no more about it. A couple of hours later, she returned, smiling and sporting a new haircut. It wasn’t drastically different from her previous look, but it was shorter and shaped. “Look at me!” she exclaimed. “Look what they did! I feel beautiful!!! I feel beautiful!!!” “You look beautiful,” I agreed,

although, truth be told, it was her smile and her excitement that made her beautiful, far beyond the haircut. “Thank you, thank you!” she said. Then she was out the door to show off her new look to everyone outside. I couldn’t help thinking of the one man out of 10 who came back to thank Jesus for healing him. Why? Because I have been working at the Refuge for almost two years, and – in my memory – only one other person has ever come back to thank us for helping. We are thanked, more often than not, when someone leaves the Refuge, but to make the effort to come back? I told this story to a colleague, who suggested I consider the Biblical story of the other nine, and why it is we assume they were just ingrates. Why didn’t they come back to thank Jesus? Why do so many of our neighbors not come

back especially to thank us for our help? Hard to say. They may be grateful with all their hearts, but life beckons and they go on about their day. That is OK. They may not understand that, although we do what we do because we want to help and not for their gratitude, still, it is lovely to be thanked. For someone to go out of her way, to share her joy, to let some of her exuberance spill over onto me was a blessing in itself! She felt beautiful! I wonder: did Jesus feel blessed by the one who thanked him? He must have, because the story made it into the Gospel of Luke. Oh, and one other thing: the man who came back to thank Jesus was a Samaritan – a foreigner, an outcast among the Jews, someone with less than no standing in the community. Makes you think, doesn’t it?

SPAY/NEUTER OR EUTHANASIA?

How would you control pet over population? National statistics prove that a community-backed low cost spay/neuter program is the most effective way of controlling unwanted and homeless animals. Nationwide, per capita shelter intake and euthanasia have been in a steady decline for the past several decades and research indicates that the main reason for this decline is the increasing incidence of spayed and neutered animals in the pet population. Pet overpopulation is a serious problem in Union County. Cost is one of the primary barriers to spay/neuter programs in many communities. Fortunately for Union County citizens there is a low-cost spay/neuter program available here. We urge you to take advantage of this program. Call today.

Dear Neighbors, Where has the time gone? I can hardly believe that it has been four years since I was elected Union County Assessor of Property. During this time I have had the opportunity to participate in rigorous training regarding tax assessment laws and the fundamental responsibilities of a county assessor. For the next few months, I would like to share a few stories about the inner workings of the assessor’s office and my own personal life. First, I want to say that being the assessor of property has been a wonderful experience, and I am very grateful to have the opportunity to serve our community. The past four years have taught me a great deal about my hometown and given me a chance to meet so many wonderful people who have welcomed me into their homes and allowed me to both laugh and cry with them in times of prosperity and adversity. It has been an adventure traveling to parts of our county I did not even know existed. I have even had a couple of misadventures getting stuck in the mud once and needing a tow when the car died in the middle of the road. I have learned so much from visiting each area of our county including the value of a box of Milk-Bones when meeting our canine neighbors! I know that the office of property assessor is sometimes unpopular, but I hope you can look past the role of “tax man” to see that I am committed to my responsibilities and attempt to execute them with integrity, equality and exceptional customer service. I appreciate your confidence in my ability to perform the duties of the assessor of property and hope to continue serving you in the future. Sincerely, Donna Paid for by candidate.

Union County High School Athlete of the Week Katilyn Cook By Cindy Taylor Union

County High School junior Katilyn Cook started playing tennis in middle school, and coach K a t h y Katilyn Cook Cox is thrilled to have such a talented player on the team. “Katilyn has a lot of power,” said Cox. “That’s her game. She has a powerful forehand and serve

and is an excellent player.” Cook prefers the forehand position, and her class is the first class to come to the high school from the middle school tennis program. According to Cox, most of her freshmen come in knowing little or nothing about how to play the game. “I liked the sport and played for the first time on a team at Horace Maynard,” said Cook, who hasn’t made a decision on staying with the sport after high school. The tennis team will play their first match March 13 at the high school.
