Nonprofits scrap with commission By Cindy Taylor The Union County Commission meeting July 11 was focused on budgeting for charitable organizations, and the Union County Humane Society received high accolades. Even though the budget amount the commission agreed to was less than Tammy Rouse requested by more than $16,000, if the proposed county budget passes the Humane Society will receive $20,000. The original amount recommended by the Budget and Finance Committee was only $10,000, but commissioners were quick to call for double that, and a unanimous vote won the day for the Humane Society. “We cannot continue to do all that we are doing with the current funding,” said Rouse. “Last year, more than 3,000 animals were received at the shelter, and 1,213 were strays. The total cost for caring for these strays was more than $36,000. We appreciate all you have done for the shel-

ter in the past and what you have agreed to do this year.” The shelter has received more than 600 strays since Jan. 1. The shelter employs six full-time workers and has 30 volunteers. Wanda Cox Byerly and Martha Jean Carter came with guns a-blazing to uphold the financial needs of the Union County Historical Society, but it turned out to be unnecessary. “Since the Historical Society was formed in 1980, not one dime has gone to pay anyone,” said Carter. “The Historical Society belongs to you,” said Byerly. “If we don’t keep it properly, you can take it away from us. Membership is only $20 a year, so we don’t generate a lot of funds from that.” The society had requested $5,000, and the commission gave their approval to add that amount to the budget. Some of the other nonprofit organizations to be added to the budget were the Little League at $5,000, Imagination Library for $2,500, American Legion Post 212 for

Photos by C. Taylor $5,000 and VFW Post 8682 for $5,000. The commission plans to complete the budget by early August. Budgeting for county roads was discussed, and Commissioner Doyle Welch urged Roads Superintendent Clayton Helms to put bids out for upcoming road work to possibly help with that portion of the county budget. The commission was concerned that not enough money had been budgeted for the coming year’s highway improvements.

Chiropractic and your tennis game Chiropractic Outlook By Dr. Darrell Johnson, DC

T

here was a time when tennis was considered something of a gentleman’s game. But watching Rafael Nadal and his peers pound the ball and move on the court, you can see how physically demanding the game is. The American Chiropractic Association, in fact, endorses tennis as excellent exercise. If you’re just taking up the game, the ACA recommends that you take a few lessons to learn the proper mechanics, an investment that ultimately will minimize your risk of injuring a wrist, shoulder or your back. Warming up and stretching – both before and after you play – is a good way to help avoid injury. Your chiropractor can suggest some warmup exercises. The cost of your racquet and clothing should be governed by your budget, but make sure your shoes are sturdy and designed for tennis. Playing tennis in a shoe that is designed for running, for instance, is an invitation to injury. The soles of running shoes are not designed for lateral movement. In the unfortunate event of a tennis injury, visit your chiropractor for treatment. In the meantime, ask her or him for more advice on how to keep your tennis time safe and fun.

Plainview approves ordinance, awards scholarship By Cindy Taylor The Plainview Board of Mayor and Aldermen opened its meeting July 12 with a public hearing regarding the second reading of Ordinance # 105. This ordinance requires that property owners be notified in writing of changes to zoning maps. The old way of doing things was to post the rezoning in the paper, and if the property owner missed it, there was nothing they could do. In past years, property had been rezoned without the owners’ knowledge. “We don’t want that to ever happen again,” said Mayor Gary Chandler. There was no opposition to the ordinance from the public or the council. Plainview awarded a

Tripp reported that the dog was under quarantine in Jefferson County. Tripp also spoke about the increase in traffic through the city due to the bridge work on Ailor Gap Road. Residents at the meeting voiced their appreciation for the excellent work Tripp does for the city. The board expressed concern regarding traffic flow in the area

bravely out front to ward off cattle or evil should either appear. I catch glimpses of my daughter sometimes leading the way, a favorite doll in tow as she stopped to smell the wildflowers that peeked up through the spring grasses, secure in the knowledge that her big brother would protect her should the need arise. Our faithful German shepherd never missing a beat as he ran alongside. I sat for a moment calculating the years that had passed and thinking about the five grandchildren I have now and imagining the face of the one that would be born this November. These six will never walk this path as their parents did, but that’s OK. I shook off my momentary nostalgia and rejoiced in the fact that my two children now have children of their own and the 11, soon to be 12, of us make new memories each time we are all together. The path most traveled is a completely different one now, and I will be fine with that. It is the one we can all visit and walk in our hearts and minds whenever we choose.

they spotted Mammaw and Papaw watching through the window for their approach, usually with a treat in hand. These are memories that parents and grandparents treasure and that throughout the years will often resurface suddenly and when you least expect them. Today was one of those days. Mammaw and Papaw have passed on, and we have moved to a new house, so the field between the former residences is not one I notice very often, even though I drive by it every day. Today was different. The field is harvested for hay in the spring and fall, and as I drove past the freshly mown grass I spotted the trail my children had formed many years ago. They had made the journey on a daily basis for the length of their childhood, but the once well-worn path was still visible after all these years. I couldn’t help myself. As tears formed in my eyes, I had to stop and look – and remember. I can still see my daughter trailing in the wake of her big brother, who was brandishing his stick sword

Football reunion time in Tennessee TALES OF TENNESSEE | Marvin West

W

hen you haven’t done anything lately and there is not all that much to get excited about, remembering the good, old days of Tennessee football is a joyous experience. Old Vols are planning a 55th reunion of the 1956 Southeastern Conference championship team. As I recall, that was the Johnny Majors show. His group was No. 2 in the country. He was SEC player of the year and deserved the Heisman Trophy. Yes, there was that blasted Sugar Bowl. Yes, a punt was fumbled and two teaspoons of glamour and fame were spilled. Older old Vols are planning a 60th reunion of the 1951 national championship team, genuine No. 1. Oops, almost forgot that they, too, had a mishap in New Orleans. Tailback Hank Lauricella, defensive end Doug Atkins and of-

fensive guard John Michels are the living legends, all in the Hall of Fame. Hank, recovering from illness, and John will undoubtedly attend the reunion. Doug is no more than a maybe. He doesn’t get around much anymore. Here’s hoping Bert Rechichar comes back. He may have been the best all-around player on the team. These will be private gatherings, on the weekend of the LSU game. If the doors were swung open and the events were on stage, they would draw a crowd. Survivors from these two teams are authentic orange treasures and thousands have never seen them or heard the tales they tell. Come to think of it, they have seen and heard Majors. None of us have heard or seen nearly enough of 1956 great guards Bruce Burnham and Bill Johnson and not much of wing-

back Bill Anderson since he signed off from the Vol Network. I can’t remember when I last talked with Buddy Cruze. He caught the pass that set up the Tommy Bronson touchdown that beat Georgia Tech 6-0 in downtown Atlanta. The Vols went in as No. 3. The Yellow Jackets were No. 2. The Associated Press once said this wonderful struggle for field position was the second-best game of all time. It has no doubt been voted down by modern selectors who preferred some 69-66 shootout that took up five overtimes and made everybody late for supper. The 10-0 season of ’56 was the peak of the Bowden Wyatt era, his second of eight years as coach of the Volunteers. Alas, it didn’t end right. Tennessee lost to Baylor in the Sugar Bowl. It would be OK to skip that part at the reunion. The Volunteers of 1951 were No. 1 in the polls for six weeks of that special season, the final perfecto of Robert R. Neyland’s remarkable career. The foundation for their reputation came from the dramatic victory over Texas in the 1951 Cotton Bowl. You do remember the 75-yard run by Lauricella and the fourth-quarter touchdowns by Andy Kozar? These are historical highlights.

‘One man shall mow my meadow’ CROSS CURRENTS | Lynn Hutton You have multiplied the nation, you have increased its joy; they rejoice before you as with joy at the harvest. … (Isaiah 9:3 NRSV) One man shall mow my meadow, Two men shall gather it together. Two men, one man, and one more Shall shear my lambs and ewes and rams And gather my gold together. (“One Man Shall Mow My Meadow,” English folk song)

T

hey mowed my meadow last week. To be absolutely honest, it is not my meadow. It belongs to a man who lives in town and whose mother was a friend of my aunt who built the house where I now live. He is a nice man, and I like to think he won’t care if I enjoy his meadow.

So, I call it “my meadow,” and that is how I think of it. I love it in all times and seasons. It is silently serene when it lies blanketed with snow. It is beautiful under a full moon. It is laced with daisies in spring. It dances in the wind in high summer. And then comes mowing day.

The sound of the tractor moves across the field like an angry swarm of bees, and the waving hay is flattened, and the whole meadow looks as manicured as a new-mown lawn. The very next day, though, the rake organizes it into long parallel rows that snake across the softly undulating land, and it is a thing of beauty. I stand in my kitchen, looking out at it in the early morning sun, reveling in the shadows that stretch westward from each row. I study it in the moonlight from a window in my bedroom, the stars wheeling above it. That is usu-

Tennessee lost several good players (including Jack Stroud) from the ’50 squad but the returnees knew the feeling of greatness, what it took to get there and what it would take to stay. Blocking and tackling were the basics. Think Jim Haslam and Pug Pearman. Neyland, borderline genius in psychology, told the players they should ignore preseason praise, throw away press clippings, and duck and run when fans tried to pat them on the back. As was his custom, he mentioned the maxims and probably went over them again if anybody yawned. The schedule was neatly arranged. Chattanooga was in front of Alabama and Tennessee Tech behind the Tide. Washington and Lee was the setup game before Ole Miss. Keep in mind that I, as a university freshman, saw the home games and the maxims in action. Mississippi State mistakes led to two Tennessee touchdowns in the first quarter. The next three were near-even. Blocking back Jimmy Hahn (Jacobs Trophy as best blocker in the SEC) explained that the General never wanted to run up the score. Duke shot itself in the foot. Duke fumbled. Duke didn’t pick up a kickoff. Duke fumbled again and lost two interceptions. Duke lost

the game by four touchdowns. Many missed Chattanooga and Tennessee Polytechnic Institute. I didn’t. As for not running up the score, TPI lost by 68. This reunion will undoubtedly concentrate on the victory over Alabama, how Gordon Polofsky knocked the ball loose and recovered, how Lauricella quick-kicked to the Tide 4, how ironic it was that Lauricella ran for 108 yards and passed for 108 yards. The 28-0 triumph at Kentucky is worth several replays. The Wildcats were good but this was the 16th consecutive year without a blue victory in what was supposed to be a border rivalry. It was the third consecutive shutout over All-American QB Babe Parilli. Coach Paul Bryant said darn. For some strange reason, Lexington was the mountaintop. The ’51 Vols gave up 251 passing yards and narrowly nipped Vanderbilt in Knoxville. The perfect year ended in an upset loss to Maryland in the Sugar Bowl. Ex-Vol Denver Crawford helped scheme the Terps’ decisive defense, an overload to the strong side. The game was not as close as 28-13 indicated. The Vols gained only 81 yards. They’ll do much better at the reunion.

ally when I start humming the English folk song quoted above. It is one I learned when I taught grade school music for two years in an inner city school in Knoxville. It was in the 3rd grade music book, and I am pretty sure that most of the children who sang it with me had never seen a hayfield, or a meadow, and, what’s more, wouldn’t be much impressed if they did. That simple song stuck with me, perhaps because of its gentle lilt (it is in 6/8 time, so it dances a bit), and because it is a “cumulative song,” like “The Twelve Days of Christmas.” You can keep adding to the number of men working in the song (“Three men shall mow my meadow, four men shall gather it together. …”) as long as you want to go. But I think the reason I love

it so, and sing it again whenever I see harvest taking place, is that the song acknowledges the worth of the land, the value of the farmer’s labor, the goodness of the “gold” that is being gathered together. It speaks of the camaraderie of shared effort, the value of work and sweat, and the gifts that the earth gives to us in exchange for our labor. The boundless grace of God never ceases to amaze me. Even though the Genesis story tells us that work is our punishment for that mess that took place in the Garden of Eden, I am grateful that God allows us to enjoy the beauty of this world, to understand the meaning of our work and to participate in the ongoing creation of God’s bounty.

Hook, line and sinker American Legion tournament in third year By Cindy Taylor The third annual American Legion Post 212 Youth Fishing Tournament was held at Big Ridge State Park on July 9, and anglers were welcomed at check-in with old time harmonica melodies. American Legion Post 212 member John Stefanski said he has been playing the harmonica for “a very long time” – since before he went to Korea. “I was told years ago that I played the harmonica backwards,” said Stefanski.

“I still play the same way.” Backwards or not, the music drew folks who came to fish or who just wanted to sit and listen. More than 125 kids up to 12 years old turned out to try their hand at catching the prize fish. Participants in the tournament were awarded prizes for most fish caught, biggest fish caught and other categories. There was a drawing each hour to award door prizes. A bicycle was the grand prize. Other items given were gift certificates, fishing lures, games and more.

Eight-year-old Hunter Lane shows off his catch with the help of his dad, Darren.

Handmade bamboo rods were available for kids who did not have their own as well as 160 regular rod and reels that were provided by TWRA. Bob White kept up with rod check out and repair. The American Legion Post 212 Ladies Auxiliary helped with cooking and keeping up with prizes. They prepared 1,500 hot dogs to feed the crowd, along with five gallons of chili and 50 cases of soft drinks. Donations were made by Bass Pro Shops, Food City and Pepsi. Post leadership thanks all of members, especially Joe Sexton, for all the help with fundraising.

Union County High School boys basketball coaches Mike Johnson, Shane Brown and Jonathan Smith. Photo submitted

Coaches visit Butler University By Cindy Taylor Union County High School boys basketball coaches Shane Brown, Jonathan Smith and Mike Johnson recently took a trip that would rival Disney World to a 5-year-old. The three were invited to visit Butler University in Indianapolis, where the movie “Hoosiers” was fi lmed, to sit down with icons of its men’s basketball program. Brown set up the trip and brought an experience to his coaching team that they will not soon forget. “It was a great experience,” said Johnson. “We all wanted to go because we wanted to learn as much as we could about the Butler program and hopefully implement some of what we learned into the Union County program. “Walking into the legendary Hinkle Field house was unbelievable. It was almost as surreal as sitting in the middle of the Butler Bulldogs locker room talking hoops with head coach Brad Stevens and associate head coach Matthew Graves. I was so excited I

couldn’t stop asking questions.” Stevens and Graves spent more than three hours between them discussing the keys to their team’s success. Stevens told the men that one recent component has been the strength program. “It has made the team not only physically stronger, but mentally tougher,” said Stevens. The Butler men’s team has been to back-to-back Final Fours, advancing to the national championship game each time. Graves gave insight into their man-to-man defensive philosophy and went over the basics of Butler’s “Flow” offense. On July 6, Butler men’s basketball standout Matt Howard was named the Horizon League’s 2010-11 Cecil N. Coleman Medal of Honor recipient. Howard was the unanimous choice on the men’s ballot, a tribute to the great coaching at the school. The Union County coaches said that they were impressed with how well they were treated

by Graves and Stevens and how generous they were with their time and advice. “I am very fortunate to be a part of the Union County boys basketball program and very lucky to work with coach Brown,” said Johnson. “He gave me the opportunity to talk basketball with two of the best college coaches in America!” “The experience that I had was one that I will never forget,” said Smith. “To have the opportunity to meet and talk with coach Stevens and coach Graves about basketball was inspiring. Having access to coaches that were part of a team that has been to backto-back national championships was incredible.” “I have the best coaching staff in East Tennessee with Mike Johnson and Jonathan Smith, and it was good for us to get away for a day and talk basketball,” said Brown. “We discussed our summer camps and player development. It was an overall great trip, and hopefully we can start a tradition with these retreats every summer.”

Brad Nease, Tayte Kitts, Seth Norris, Drew Fugate, Tyler Wynn and Logan Anderson all attended summer basketball camps.
