Catch of the day

‘End of the world,’ Echota style By Cindy Taylor The Echota District of the Great Smoky Mountain Council of Boy Scouts held their 2012 Camporee on April 27-30. The theme for this year was “The End of the World as You Know It.” The camp was all about survival skills, but fortunately weather wasn’t an issue that had to be conquered. Blue skies and sunshine prevailed as troops from Union and North Knox counties competed for the trophy. Union County’s own Troop 401 brought home the coveted title of “Best

Overall Troop” for the second year in a row. Challenges involved building shelters and starting fires. Only natural, found items could be used for any skill. Troop 213 from Northeast Knox County built two survival shelters that would be habitable once finished. “Since the Mayan calendar ends this year, the Scouts chose ‘End of the World’ as the theme for Summer Camporee,” said veteran Scout Dexter Dinsmore. “One of our shelters was disqualified because we didn’t know we

around, but that’s it. The wind can be a huge factor, too.” They also built a wilderness survival shelter and did camp improvements to help guarantee their win. There was one secret challenge: a woman was parked close to the site of the Camporee with a tire out beside her car and her hood up. The challenge was to see which, if any, troops would respond and offer help. Troop 401 was on the ball seeking to assist her.

couldn’t use rope.” For the fire challenge, troops had to build a fire that would stay under one line of string but send a flame high enough to burn through an upper string. Troop 401 used a “hot spark,” or flint and steel, and a “bird’s nest” to start their fire. Using the hot spark rather than matches, which were allowed, earned the troop extra points. “Once you start the fire you can’t add any more material,” said scoutmaster Bill Collins. “You can blow on it and move materials

According to Union County Property Assessor Donna Jones, property assessment is a complex and technical profession vital to the financial health of local government. Jones will seek re-election this August. “As Assessor I have become thoroughly familiar with all the pertinent legislation and operating procedures,” said Jones. “My office has collaborated with other agencies to establish a Geographical Information System to provide faster and more efficient service to the county while maintaining a mapping system at no extra cost.” Through partnership with the 911 system, new addresses are now available in the Assessor’s office when a building permit is purchased. According to Jones, this partnership saves the county money and provides fast service to property owners. Jones said her office staff are members of the Tennessee Association of Assessing Officers and all required training and continuing

Chiropractic is not a quick fix

Union County Clerk’s Office

Chiropractic Outlook By Dr. Darrell Johnson, DC

By Cindy Taylor In 2007 the Union County Clerk’s office left its home in the courthouse to move just across the street. Since then, many new services have been added. “We can offer drivethrough tag renewals and passports,” said County Clerk Pam Ailor. “Our drive-through tag renewal is new, and we want be sure people know they can come here to get their driv-

er’s license as well.” The County Clerk’s office can also handle Notary applications, hunting and fishing license, watercraft registration, and motor vehicle title and registration. There are many specialized license plates that can be purchased as well. Ailor is looking into being able to issue birth certificates and hopes to continue to add new services in the coming months. There is a kiosk in the

While some problems can be corrected more quickly than others, it’s important to understand that chiropractic treatment is not always going to produce immediate relief from pain. As a society we’ve become accustomed to instant gratification in many phases of our lives. And that includes relief from pain in the form of prescription drugs. Chiropractic, of course, does not promote the use of drugs or surgery. Remember that chiropractic treatment is designed to locate the source of a problem and correct it, not merely mask the pain. After your initial chiropractic exam, you and your chiropractor can work out a treatment plan. Often, treatment alone will not resolve an issue. If, for instance, an injury or subluxation – the misalignment of one or more vertebrae – is the result of, say, poor posture, you will have to correct the behavior that brought the condition on in the first place. Your chiropractor can show you how to make the corrections, but the work is up to you. Good communication between you and your chiropractor also is essential to making progress. During the course of your treatment, the chiropractor may decide on a new direction or may refer you to another medical professional as symptoms and progress dictate your program of care. Brought to you as a community service by Union County Chiropractic; 110 Skyline Drive, Maynardville, TN; 992-7000.

Staff at the Union County Clerk’s Office are County Clerk Pam Ailor, Carole Williams, Amy England, Larry Brantley, Joyce Dyer and Elizabeth Buck.

Terry Stewart has been named Office Manager of the Year for Coldwell Banker Commercial. Stewart is a Union County native. “My grandfather was sheriff of Union County back in his day,” said Stewart. “I played basketball from Sharps Chapel Elementary on into Horace Maynard High School and lived and breathed the sport.” According to Jim Simpson, Stewart’s immediate supervisor, the only thing more important to a commercial real estate office other than top professional associates is

She has now been a team member for more than 13 years and her performance has improved simply by her ability to embrace change and continue to learn. “Terry sets the standard of excellence in business operations,” said Fred Schmidt, President and COO of Coldwell Banker Commercial. Stewart will be honored as the individual office manager who has made the biggest impact on business operations for 2012 nationwide at an upcoming ceremony with an all expense paid trip to Las Vegas.

‘End of the world’ From page A-1 One “End of the World� challenge required laying planks across a pretend zombie swamp. The troops would lay a plank, all members would get on the plank, and then lay more planks to cross the swamp as a group. If you fell, the zombies would eat you and you where out. Troop 401 also won Best Overall Patrol for their Masked Bandits, consisting of two older Scouts and two new guys. Scoutmaster Linda Myers was pleased that the troop won since 45 percent of them are new this year. “I was very proud of the unified effort of the troop and the young Scouts stepping up to the challenge to

win the trophy,� said Myers. “They all worked hard to take the overall win for the second time in a row.� More than 15 troops from the Echota District and two visiting troops attended the weekend camp. Nine Scouts, four scoutmasters and two volunteers attended with the Scouts from Troop 401 and aided them in surviving a weekend of tent living with no running water, no indoor facilities and only their skill and cunning to keep them going. Their mascot, Scout the dog, was also a big help. The weekend concluded with a group campfire and skit on Saturday evening Members of Troop 401 with their 2012 trophy are Seth Jackson, scoutmaster Linda Myers, Johnny Myers, Austin Hickman, Travis Padand a trophy presentation den, Bruce Inkelbarger, assistant scoutmaster Tommy Warwick, Orrin Warwick, Jerry Myers, Dustin Letner, Jamie Myers, assistant scoutmaster Caleb Branum, Jordan Simpson, and assistant scoutmaster Bill Collins with his grandson Zack Padden.

Anna Jarvis: The ‘mother’ of Mother’s Day At the age of 12, Anna Jarvis heard rd her ould mother pray that someone would ng establish a day of commemorating er mothers everywhere. Anna never forgot this moment. When herr mother passed away in 1905, Anna was heard to say at the graveside service, “…by the grace of God, you shall have that Mother’s Day.” n By 1907, Anna began a campaign he to establish Mother’s Day. On the er’s second anniversary of her mother’s rews death, she led a small tribute at Andrews Methodist Church. The next year, Mother’s Day was celebrated in Philadelphia.

Anna’s supporters began to write letters asking for a national Mother’s Day. She eventually gained the support of John Wanamaker, Philadelphia merchant and philanthropist. In 1909, 45 U.S. states, Puerto Rico, Hawaii, Canada and Mexico observed Mother’s Day. People wore white and red carnations to pay tribute to their mothers, a tradition started by Anna. Carnations were Anna’s mother’s favorite flowers, the white carnation most of all because it represented the purity of a mother’s heart. Those whose mothers had passed away wore white carnations. Those whose mothers were still living wore red carnations. By 1911, Mother’s Day was celebrated in almost every U.S. state. In 1914, president Woodrow Wilson proclaimed Mother’s Day a national holiday to be held each year on the second Sunday of May.

More precious than rubies, I can still hear her voice, When I was just a little one and she had to make my choice. The nights when she rocked me in the big brown rocking chair, The way she held me close to her, I knew she would always care. No matter what the problem was, if it be great or small, She taught how the One above could help me when I call. The late summer evenings her voice would call my name, When I stayed outside too late to play my childhood games.

She never asked for riches, of silver and of gold, Just for everyone to be happy and to love her when she grew old. She taught me how to love God first and I didn’t understand. My mother was so kind to me – how could anyone else be so grand? Each night she knelt with me and taught me how to pray, To always love and trust God and to stay in His narrow way. Now that I have grown up and the Lord is in my heart, I thank my mother tenderly who played a special part. As I look back over those years, all these treasures I do hold, And Mother, don’t you worry, I’ll still love you when you grow tired and old!

Col. Franks and the ‘King’ TALES OF UNION COUNTY | Bonnie Peters James David Franks told me he started cooking at age 5. His grandmother taught him to cook and would let him stand in a straight wooden chair and stir the pots on a wood burning stove. Recalculating her directions – a spoonful of this or that, pinch of this or that, not to mention the “handful” since Dave’s hand is three times the size of his grandmother’s hand – has been quite a challenge. Nonetheless, Dave has published two cookbooks, “Foods of the Southland” and “Bar-B-Q Beans and Tater Salad.” He is working on a third book, “Sweets of the Southland.” Dave would like to invite all those good cooks reading this to send him their “Sweets” recipes for publication in his book. He says he will give a credit line, such as, “From the Kitchen of ___” to anyone’s recipe he publishes. Looking back at Dave’s days running a service station in Memphis, the station was close to Graceland, and Elvis was a customer. Dave recalls helping Elvis “escape” from the girls lined up at Graceland to see Elvis by letting Elvis lie in the back

seat of his car. Dave covered him up with a fender cover and they drove out the gate. One time at Dave’s service station, Elvis wanted to pump gas. Of course, Dave agreed. Elvis filled up a woman’s car and came up to the window asking if there would be anything else, and the woman recognized Elvis and fainted! In addition to Dave’s Donut Shop, Dave opened two restaurants, a wholesale food business, a pest control business, a publishing company, a wholesale produce business and his own record label. He has written and published two songs: “Dusty Road” and “Model A’s and Alabama, Alabama.” When Alex Haley built and opened a retreat near the Museum of Appalachia, he hired Dave as his “country cook and farm manager.” Alex nicknamed Dave “Doctor Creative.” While working for Haley, Dave cooked for Oprah Winfrey, Louis Gossett Jr., Maya Angelou, John Rice Irwin, Sen. Lamar Alexander and others of note. Dave began barbecuing at age 14 in Whitehaven, Tenn. He recalls building the pits of river rocks and

red clay. He cut his own wood, built the fire over to the side and shoveled the embers under the meat. My, how times have changed. He now uses wood chunks and charcoal.

“When we first read the script, we thought it was hilarious,” said English and drama teacher Cyndi Hansard. “Since everyone reads ‘Romeo and Juliet’ their freshman year, it is a great play for a

high school audience. We also wanted a play that we could perform for elementary students. The silliness and all the Dr. Seuss references throughout this play made it seem like a perfect fit for them as well.”

BACK IN BLACK.

Black cats and dogs everywhere are donning their dark glasses and engaging their “flashy things” to wipe out the myths and stereotypes about black animals during Back in Black 2, a national adoption promotion. Supported by national animal welfare organization Best Friends Animal Society®, about 100 animal rescue groups and shelters across the country including the Union County Humane Society in Maynardville are participating. Last year, the Back in Black adoption event was introduced to showcase black dogs and cats and give them the best chance at being adopted. More than 900 pets found homes nationwide. Even though they do make wonderful pets with great personalities, black dogs and cats are often overlooked for adoption, but why is that? After all, the color of a pet's fur has no relationship to their ability to provide unconditional love, companionship and devotion.

During the Month of May, all Black Dog & Cat Adoption Fees are $62.50 (half off our normal adoption fee)

Union County High School Athlete of the Week Dillon Fields By Cindy Taylor The Union County High School baseball team is wrapping up their regular season and moving on to district tournaments. According to coach Drew Dillon Fields Richardson, sophomore Dillon Fields has made tremendous contributions to the team to help get them there. “Dillon is a great kid and very coachable,” said Richardson. “He stepped into a

A-1

starting role this year and has been a spark plug for our team batting lead-off and playing outfield, and has been very effective on the mound.” Fields has been playing the sport since he was 4 years old and plays left field, center field and right field for the Patriots. He says he has always loved the sport and follows the career of Brett Gardner who plays for the Yankees. “Our team has played hard this year and we have a good coach so I’m looking forward to districts,” said Fields. Fields plans to continue with the team through his senior year.

Chittum is an alto singer in chorus, a percussionist in the band and is co-captain of the color guard during the marching season.

She was part of the drum line when they won first place at the Stone Memorial Invitational this past fall. Her plans for the future include a career in nursing. “While very quiet, Destiny leads by example, works hard and always does her part,” said Hackney. “As the only senior in the drum line, she will be dearly missed as we try to determine who will be good enough to fill her shoes next year.” Hackey thanked the band members for all of their hard work and sent out special thanks to all of the parents who supported the program.
