New school open for business

By Cindy Taylor A pristine American flag donated by the Tri-County Veterans Honor Guard, the VFW and the American Legion now flies over the new Paulette Elementary School. The flag was presented during the ribbon-cutting ceremony July 30, a ceremony that brought cheers and tears from those attending, a marvelous blend of the “old” and the “new.” Even with heat topping 90 degrees, the community couldn’t stay away from a chance to walk through their new school. The Tri-County Veterans Honor Guard, led by Charles Scruggs, Reed Campbell, John Langley, Dean Stiner, James and Sharon Collins and John Stefanski, presented the American flag. Guard members James and Sharon Collins raised the flag, and Stefanski roused the audience by trumpeting Reveille. Christopher Braun of Boy Scout Troop 404 led the Pledge of Allegiance, and the Union County High School Band directed by Jamie Hackney followed with “The Star Spangled Banner.” Union County Sheriff’s Deputy Phillip King, pastor of First Baptist Church of Maynardville, dedicated the school with prayer. State and local officials and alumni from the original Paulette School spoke to the crowd. Incoming 1st grader Preston Patterson and original Paulette School alumna Judy Graves Sexton handled the scissors for the ribbon-cutting. Paulette Instructional Facilitator Missy Fugate, who also coordinated the event, read aloud a poem written by Sexton for the occasion. Fugate, along with Paulette Principal Jason Bailey, welcomed guests and officials, including former Mayor Larry Lay, state Sen. Mike Faulk, state Rep. Dennis Powers and Sandra Edmondson representing U.S. Rep. Chuck Fleischmann. “This is a dream that has become a reality,” said Bailey. “This is an example of what a community can do

Tips for good posture Chiropractic Outlook By Dr. Darrell Johnson, DC


eeping a healthy spine is important for protecting your overall health, and the way you carry yourself will go a long way toward maintaining the integrity of your spine and back. Your mother knew what she was talking about when she told you to sit up straight and keep your shoulders back. Poor posture is a leading cause of back and neck pain. As with any bad habit, however, it’s never too late to mend your ways. When walking, be mindful of keeping your head upright and your stomach tucked in. At work, use a sturdy chair that supports your lower back. Put a cushion or a rolled-up towel at the base of your back if necessary. Stand up and walk around every 20 to 30 minutes to keep muscles from getting stiff. Use the cushion or rolled towel when you drive if your seat does not offer enough support to your lower back. Make sure your knees are at the same level as your hips. While you may not be able to walk around every 20 to 30 minutes during a long drive, take breaks as frequently as is practical. When lifting, bend your knees and let your legs do the work; never lean forward with your legs straight while holding anything heavy. Talk with a chiropractor for other tips on keeping your back healthy. Brought to you as a community service by Union County Chiropractic; 110 Skyline Drive, Maynardville, TN; 992-7000.

Business of the week Images by Marvin By Cindy Taylor Marvin Jeffreys, owner of Images by Marvin, recently returned from a trip to the Colorado Rockies. While that statement isn’t true, Jeffreys has the ability and the software to make someone believe it is. While visiting Jeffreys in his studio where beautiful faces adorn the walls, I took a photo of him in front of a green screen. Jeffreys then imported that photo into his software, resulting in a dream visit to those majestic mountains. Of course, software of this caliber has the ability to overcome any flaws in a personal portrait as well. “I have been fascinated with photography since I was 6 years old and playing with my mother’s old Brownie camera,” said Jeffreys. “As I grew up I would save to buy a roll of film, shoot it and then many times have to save up again to have it developed and printed. Photography is all I ever wanted to do, and I cannot imagine not being a photographer. I have always told people you can buy the equipment I have, you can use the labs I use but you can’t buy my brain or

Jimmy Sexton and Jack Effler, both of whom attended the original Paulette School, speak at the ribbon-cutting for the new school.

Paulette pride From page A-1 then read a statement from Gov. Bill Haslam. “I bring greetings from our three constitutional officers,” said Faulk. “Tennessee Secretary of State Trey Hargett, State Comptroller Justin Wilson and State Treasurer David Lillard. They were the three votes on the school bond funding board that got Union County the low interest loan used to help build this school. To the visionary Union County school board and commission that obligated themselves and the taxpayers of Union County, you are about to begin reaping the harvest, and I thank you for not giving up. That harvest will continue for years to come.” “Chuck sends his regrets and always says that Union County is his favorite coun-

ty,” said Edmondson. “He is on the floor this morning voting for those things that are very important for our everyday lives. When travelers come down this highway, our schools will be a shining star in this county and are great examples of what can be done when people work together.” Pauline Houser Smith, a teacher from the first Paulette school, was in attendance. She took a tour of classrooms and activity rooms after the ceremony alongside children who will be starting school for the first time ever, or who are transferring in from other schools. School staff and many officials wore the school colors of purple and gold. They are proud that at long last the purple Paulette Panthers will prowl once again with the statement “We just can’t hide that Paulette Pride!”

Extension Agent Shannon Perrin and 4-H Summer Camp scholarship recipient Tyler Mink.

4-H scholarship winner chosen The UT Extension Office continues to create agricultural opportunities that support Union County students through the 4-H program.

Cindy Taylor

More than 11 scholarships were given to support students attending 4-H Summer Camp. Tyler Mink is one student who has realized these benefits. Thanks to donations from the Union County Community Foundation, the Hubbs Grove FCE and the Sharps Chapel FCE, Mink was awarded a full scholarship to 4-H Summer Camp. Thirteen-year-old Mink is a worthy recipient with his agricultural background. He raises chickens and horses and plans to stay in agriculture after finishing school. “The camp is my favorite part of 4-H,” said Mink. “I learned trap shooting and made a derby car. I won all the way to the final race and got beat by a block of wood on wheels. I hope to go back to camp as a team leader when I get older.” Mink is an active volunteer in 4-H and has shown at events and acted as judge. One of Mink’s favorite activities is the Derby Car Race. “My dad made a derby car for a race when he was little,” said Mink. “He wanted to get his dad a present but didn’t have the money, so he sold the car to buy his dad a belt and then the car won the race.” Mink has more than 20 chickens that he shows and will be a poultry judge at the Tennessee Valley Fair this year. He plans to enter items in photography, fudge, jelly and chickens. He will also participate in the hay bale decorating team. Mink competed on the Union County poultry judging team and placed second overall in the Eastern Region 4-H poultry judging contest. He is also a fourth generation 4-H’er. His great-grandmother Marion Mink was a county agent, grandfather Bruce Mink was active in the club, and Mink’s father, Bruce Mink Jr., has carried the tradition to his son.

Farmers market expanding

The Union County Farmers Market continues to be a place for fun and neighborhood meets and greets. The market boasted a variety of fruits and vegetables in abundance July 30, and Malone’s Chuck Wag-

on was back with barbecue and ribbon cut potatoes. Aug. 6, the market will host Cruze’s Homemade Ice Cream, with milk and buttermilk also for sale. Shirley DeBusk will be there with honey, beeswax and an observation hive. The Union County Farmers Market is made possible in part by a grant from the Union County Community Foundation.

4-H dates to remember

On Aug. 19, get to know your new Family and Consumer Science Extension Agent. All the Union County FCE Clubs will be at a meet and greet with new agent Joy Grissom at noon at Ann’s Kitchen. Sept. 7 is the Chick Chain Show and Sale at the Union County Co-Op beginning at 6 p.m. Chickens that were disbursed to 4-H’ers in April will be returning stars. There will be a competition with chickens being judged in pens of six. The Grand Champion will win $50 and Reserve Cham-

Jim Morgan shows off a fresh cut flower display at the Union County Farmers Market. Photos by C. Taylor pion will win $35. To qualify for the Chick Chain project, 4-H’ers paid a $30 deposit. In order to refund the 4-H’ers for their deposits, the pens of chickens will be auctioned to the highest bidder. On Sept. 13, 4-H’ers will be baking biscuits and serving them with jam at the Tennessee Valley Fair.

4-H recruitment is on!

Union County Extension Office is looking for you! There are many events coming up, and anyone who wants to volunteer or get involved is invited to call the Extension Office and apply. There are opportunities to be part of judging teams for the Tennessee Valley Fair. Judging teams will be trained by Shannon Perrin, Joy Grissom and some volunteers.

Judges will be taught about one of the two topics offered this year. Perrin and Alan Beeler will be instructing a poultry judging team. Joy Grissom will be instructing a life skills judging team. For the Tennessee Valley Fair this year, Perrin is hoping for a huge participation from Union County. “I would love for us to enter rabbits and chickens, any poultry, actually; ducks, pigeons, whatever anyone has,” said Perrin. “I will help fill out entry forms if people will make an appointment and come by our new office.” Entry deadline is Aug. 18 and arrangements must be made with Perrin by Aug. 15 to get entry forms.

Best athlete? Good question TALES OF TENNESSEE | Marvin West


ernard King was back in town the other evening as keynote speaker for the Greater Knoxville Sports Hall of Fame. Sarah remembered that I once considered him the best athlete ever at Tennessee. And elsewhere? There have been some other good ones here and there in six and a half decades of watching hundreds of college games, several Olympics, many Super Bowls, World Series baseball games, NCAA Final Fours and assorted lesser extravaganzas. Perspective? When you think of how many play from Little League up through high school and how few become college starters and how few of those become pros and how few of those become world superstars, “best athlete” takes on serious significance.

On the assumption that the once-in-a-lifetime greatest would play more than one sport, I missed him. Jim Thorpe was before my time. He won two races in the 1912 Olympics, finished fourth in the high jump and seventh in the long jump. He was twice an All-American halfback for the Carlisle Indians, offense and defense, punter and placekicker. He played pro football eight years and major league baseball for six. He hit .327 for the 1927 Boston Braves. He is featured in three halls of fame, college football, pro football, and track and field. Jesse Owens and Carl Lewis were better than average runners and jumpers, winners of an entire collection of Olympic gold medals. Jesse dominated at Berlin

but didn’t get invited to the White House. I saw Bo Jackson run and I saw Tennessee knock his block off when he was an Auburn Tiger. Bo knows he got tagged. Jackson won the 1985 Heisman Trophy and was first to be an all-star in two pro sports and Nike commercials. He played baseball for the Royals (MVP of the ’89 All-Star Game) and football for the Raiders. Maybe you remember the Monday night madness when Bo ran over Brian Bosworth of the Seahawks on his way to 221 rushing yards. I saw Deion Sanders, alone as a Super Bowl and World Series player, exciting cornerback and outfielder, nine times all-NFL, league record-

Two women and a truck CROSS CURRENTS | Lynn Hutton See, everyone who uses proverbs will use this proverb about you, “Like mother, like daughter.” (Ezekiel 16:45 NRSV)


helped my daughter move into a new house last week. Jordan had found the cottage of her dreams, complete with ivy, roses and a white picket fence. It even came with a fenced backyard so that Emma and Zoe, the Labs, would have a place to romp, lie in the sun and chase imaginary (or real) rabbits. Jordan, who was an English major and whose first job out of college was at DavisKidd Booksellers, owns more books than the Library of Congress (which may be a slight exaggeration, but it certainly felt like it when I was packing

them). “Gravity works” was my mantra as I hauled books down the staircase in the house she was leaving. I could ease the boxes from one step to the next, and so on, all the way down the stairs. Her best friend from college came to help us move the couch out of the upstairs office, and the three of us wrestled it downstairs. Another friend in the neighborhood helped dismantle the antique armoire that had belonged to Jordan’s paternal great-grandmother. It is more than 9 feet tall and put together with pegs. When its top is lifted off, the whole

thing becomes as unstable as Jell-O. Taking it apart (or putting it together, for that matter) is a daunting task. When Moving Day arrived we went to rent a truck. This young woman – who just yesterday, surely, I wrapped in a yellow blanket and carried home from the hospital in my arms, the West Virginia snow falling all around us – climbed in that 15-foot truck and drove it home like a pro. Jordan backed it into her old driveway and was so mad at herself that it took two tries. (For the record, on the next trip, she did it in one!) Her new next door neighbors were moving out on the same day Jordan was moving in, and two of them came

holder with 19 touchdowns on interceptions and kick returns, speedster who stole 57 bases one season and led the National League in triples. He hit .304 in his best year. Fitting nickname: Neon Deion. Michael Jordan was a pretty fair basketball player but mediocre in minor league baseball and poker. Danny Ainge could play baskets but hit only .220 with the Blue Jays. Bob Hayes ran fast in the 100 and scored 71 NFL touchdowns. Dave Winfield, Minnesota all-everything, was drafted by pro football, basketball and baseball. Best ever in orange? After Bernard, it is a close call. Maybe Condredge Holloway or Doug Atkins or Willie Gault or Ron Widby or Richmond Flowers or Tom Pappas? Pappas was twice NCAA decathlon champ, a world champion and an Olympian. His 10 tough events involve a wide range of skills – running, jumping and throwing things. Atkins at 6-7 and 240 was a basketball Vol one season and a football legend, one of the best defensive ends in NFL history. More remarkable were his track feats.

With almost no practice, he high-jumped 6-6 and placed second in an SEC meet in Birmingham. That much man clearing a bar was astounding. Motivation? Travel money. Flowers for a time was the best hurdler in the world. As good as he was in football, he probably had more courage than ability. He had enough of both to play in the NFL. Gault was borderline AllAmerican in football, spectacular in hurdles and sprints, Super Bowl champ with the Bears and producer of the Super Bowl Shuffle, doorknob for a Hollywood fling. He got involved with Winter Olympics as a bobsled pusher. He can still dance and run fast in middle age. Widby won letters in four sports – football, basketball, baseball and golf. He led the baseball Vols in batting as a sophomore, later led the SEC in basketball scoring and the country in punting average. He played pro baskets briefly, punted in the NFL for a living and earned tip money playing golf. Holloway was Tennessee’s most exciting quar-

over and offered to help carry in the couch. Feminine pride and independence extends only so far in the Memphis heat, so we accepted the offer with alacrity. When all was said and done, we were exhausted, and both of us had bruises on arms and legs to prove that we had worked like longshoremen. But, as one friend of mine had predicted, there were “moments of delight.” As we worked, we talked about the fact that we had spent more time alone together in that week than we ever had before. When Jordan was living at home, growing up, there were always other family members around. After she left for college, her sister, Eden, and I had some years together, just the two of us, but Jordan and I had never experienced that. We laughed together, shared hurts, hopes and dreams, told each other things that neither of us had ever told anyone. We worked together, teaming up to figure things out. We shopped some, for things she needed in her new place. We made copious lists,

and sometimes remembered to consult them. When the church bells of St. John’s Episcopal Church (right across the street from Jordan’s house) summoned me to worship on Sunday morning, I slipped into a pew and knelt there in heartfelt thanksgiving for all of God’s mercies, for blessings beyond counting and in fervent prayer for my Jordan: my firstborn, my daughter, my friend.

terback. The Artful Dodger made many tacklers miss. He bounced off others. He had the guts to throw with blitzing linebackers in his face. He scampered all over Canadian pro football. He was better in baseball, good enough as a prep senior to have been No. 1 in the MLB draft. John Wooden of UCLA thought basketball was Holloway’s best game. Todd Helton was great as a Tennessee baseball player and good enough in football to start at quarterback – in a pinch. He almost hit .400 for the Colorado Rockies. Carl Pickens? Stanley Morgan? Many talents. In three seasons at Tennessee, King, quick as a blink, was three times an All-American with a career average of 13.2 rebounds and 25.8 points while sharing the ball with Ernie Grunfeld and Mike Jackson. I thought King was better in the NBA than Larry Bird, Magic and Kobe. His fierce fight back from a terrible knee injury to all-star status is the stuff of legends.

See yourself from a different point of view. Sometimes, your feet seem so far away, don’t they? After all, your smiles, sneezes, winks, those holes for your ear buds, that hand bringing you your first morning sip of coffee — all of the really important stuff seems to be at or near the top of you. Your feet are, well, way down there. But now, see yourself from a different point of view. Your feet are your foundation. They support you whenever you stand, walk, or run. Foot instability can be the cause of many postural problems throughout your body. A bad hair day isn’t going to make your feet sore, but bad feet can cause aches and pains all over. We care about your feet. Chiropractic adjustments and Foot Levelers’ custom-made Spinal Pelvic Stabilizers — a unique form of in-shoe orthotics — have helped thousands of people bring their bodies back to a natural state of alignment. Call us today to see how our Associate™ Platinum digital scanner can show you how your feet affect your postural status.

Kids win with Luttrell Summer Reading By Cindy Taylor The Luttrell Library closed out the Summer Reading program July 29 with a pizza and cookie party and a prize winning bonanza. The top three readers were allowed to pick their prizes, and a $50 Walmart gift card was the first to go, followed swiftly by two $25 Walmart gift cards. Five-year-old Kayden Brogdon and 6-year-old Patrick Spencer claimed the $50 gift and the $25 gift for reading 1,418 books each since the beginning of June. Twelve-year-old Ashton Lamb took home a $25 gift card for reading 890 books. The remainder of the more than 90 readers who finished the program and attended the party took home their choice of toys, games,

lunch boxes, water games and many other fabulous prizes. “We had 193 sign up, and 102 completed the program,” said librarian Gloria Fox. “In the month of July alone, we circulated 10,892 books.” During the Summer Reading program, local celebrities came to visit the kids. Ronald McDonald dropped by, and Jasper the Rooster from the Tennessee Valley Fair popped in to entertain as well. Fox has been the librarian in Luttrell for 20 years. She handled the book loaning back when the library was located in the single small room at Luttrell City Hall and is pleased to have been at the new location adjacent to the community center for the past five years. Fox has not only worked hard to help the kids with

their “One World, Many Stories” Summer Reading program, but in her “spare” time in 2011 she has managed to apply for and secure two grants for the library. One from the state totaled $16,000, and one from the Jane L. Pettway Foundation totaled $4,000. These grants have been used for technology purchases and will continue to be used for future computer training classes for the community. The library will purchase seven laptops and accessories to allow for the classes. “We plan to use part of the grants to start free computer classes for the community at the end of August with a trained professional computer engineer,” said Fox. “It has been a very busy summer, and there is still more to come.”
