The newly-formed Union County Children’s Charity held its first motorcycle run Sept. 24, and they couldn’t have asked for a better day. Classic fall weather graced the ride with blue skies and cool temperatures. Union County Children’s Charity coordinates the Union County Toys for Tots program, which distributes Christmas gifts for children in need each December. Applications for the program are now available in all Union County schools and banks. The motorcycle ride began and ended at Pete’s Place in Maynardville. Riders toured Union and Anderson counties with rest stops and snacks along the way. More than 40 bikes participated, and the ride raised $1,400. Event organizers thanked all the sponsors and everyone who volunteered, including A&B Graphics, SIRT Signs, Mayor Mike Williams, Property Assessor Donna Jones, Union Discount Pharmacy, Wallace Auto Sales, George Brothers Excavating, Beach Island Marina, Pete’s Place, County Clerk Pam Ailor, First Team Realty, Court Clerk Barbara Williams, Register of Deeds Mary Beth Kitts, KCB Excavating, Clerk and Master Beulah Moore, Blu Aqua Pools, Attorney K. David Myers, Trustee Gina Buckner and Volunteer Motors.

The letter that just won’t die Mysterious origins revealed

An Instrument of God’s peace

By Cindy Taylor The Sept. 13 County Commission meeting held to discuss the budget was spent mostly in talk about a letter that was sent home with students. The letter was emailed as an attachment to all Union County schools and listed names, not signatures, of the principals of six of those schools. The letter informed parents of the school board’s plans to make certain budget cuts should County Commission refuse to increase funding to the school system. In and of itself this seems like a good idea. The letter drew more than 800 residents and parents to the commission meeting, but it also succeeded in making most County Commissioners and Union County Mayor Mike Williams angry that school leadership took what commissioners saw as an underhanded tactic. During the meeting, Director of Schools Wayne Goforth claimed to have no knowledge of the letter. Goforth carried that response to the school board meeting that immediately followed the commission meeting, at which time school board

member Don Morgan said that he did not believe such a letter could have been sent without Goforth knowing about it. The Union County Shopper-News has since received an anonymous fax that included a copy Goforth of the original email that was sent from the office of Supervisor of Secondary Instruction Susan Oaks. That fax is printed here as well as the original letter sent to each principal. Along with that fax was a second letter with only one name on it, also shown here. Luttrell Elementary School principal Sonja Saylor acknowledges that this letter came from her desk and was sent to Luttrell teachers to let them know about the one on its way from the central office. “I passed on info that was given to me,” said Saylor. Principals Jason Bailey, Melissa Carter, Roger Flatford, Laura LaRue, and Bryan Shoffner declined to comment. Interim principal at Horace Maynard Middle School Melanie Maples and Union County High School principal Linda Harrell were unavailable for comment. Oaks said the letter was the result of a mandatory principals meeting held Sept. 9. “Mr. Goforth called principals and central office

business TMJ syndrome Chiropractic Outlook By Dr. Darrell Johnson, DC You may sometimes hear your chiropractor – or your dentist – talk about your TMJ. The TMJ is the temporomandibular joint. That is where your jaw bone, also called the mandible, connects to the temporal bone of the skull. Speaking, chewing, yawning and swallowing are all functions that depend on the proper function of the TMJs, one on either side of your head. Should either of those joints become inflamed, irritated or otherwise impaired in operation, the condition is called TMJ syndrome. This painful condition can create a clicking, crunching or grinding sound every time the joint moves. It also makes it hard to open and close the mouth. The problem can be brought on by factors as varied as stress, nail-biting, gum chewing or bruxism, which is teeth grinding. Chiropractic treatment in the form of an adjustment to the neck or to the jaw itself can help with the condition. A chiropractor can also recommend exercise, nutrition or lifestyle changes that can get at the root of the problem. And, of course, chiropractic treatment will not include the use of any drugs. If you have problems with any of your body’s joints, the TMJ included, visit a chiropractor for a consultation.

IGA Express By Cindy Taylor Do the math. That is the credo of smart shoppers and a slogan brothers Jeff and DeWayne Hensley take to heart. The owners of the new IGA Express have intelligently redesigned the entire food shopping experience to eliminate extra costs and bring their shoppers incredible value every day. “A typical supermarket carries about 30,000 grocery items,” said DeWayne Hensley. “Many of these don’t sell quickly and take up expensive shelf space, increasing the likelihood of spoilage.” IGA Express stocks less than 5,000 of the fastest moving grocery items, thereby eliminating the spoilage issue since the items move quickly. This also saves on rent and electricity, empowering the store to pass savings on to the customers. The store also carries its private label brand. These products are made to stringent specifications which, according to Hensley, actually exceed national brand standards, and prices are usually lower. The Hensleys also

Brothers Jeff and DeWayne Hensley, owners of the new IGA Express

save on advertising, and that savings is passed along to their customers. “We can constrain our own advertising expenses because we don’t have to announce a store full of price changes every week in printed ads,” said Hensley. Since the store is owned and operated by the Hensleys, they have no out of state board of directors to answer to. The pair completely remodeled and reopened the Maynardville location last

May with the SaveA-Lot Corporation but learned quickly that the board of directors would not allow favorite everyday items such as Grainger County tomatoes, White Lily Flour or Pillsbury Biscuits. “Our father, Darrell Hensley, taught us for more than 40 years to treat folks like you want to be treated and try your best to offer customers what they ask for whenever possible,” said DeWayne Hensley. Jeff and DeWayne welcome you to visit your new Hometown Maynardville IGA Express today. A grand opening will be held Wednesday, Oct. 5.

UNION COUNTY SHOPPER-NEWS • OCTOBER 1, 2011 • 3

however, voluntarily offer to allow the board to cut $10,000 from their budget. “We are at a crossroads with our backs against the wall,� said school board member Mark DeVault. Glenn Coppock expressed concern that if the budget is cut in the wrong areas, it could affect MOE. MOE is a term that has come up repeatedly in school board and County Commission meetings. Maintenance of Effort (MOE) is a federal requirement that states that grant recipients and/or sub-recipients, such as schools, must maintain a certain level of state/local fiscal effort to be eligible for full participation in federal grant funding. Grant recipients or sub-recipients not meeting MOE requirements face loss of a portion of their federal funds. This requirement on local-

ities prohibits a reduction in their funding of their school systems from one year to the next. The statutory language basically means that local governments responsible for school funding continue to provide “an amount at least equal to the funding level provided in the previous year.� In other words, Union County Commission can provide more to the schools if they choose, but never less than last year. Ideas were tossed around for a couple of hours Monday night, and board members came back for more on Tuesday. A decision will be reached on what budget cuts to take after this newspaper’s press time during an official school board meeting at 6 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 29, prior to the special called Union County Commission meeting at 7 p.m. Both are set to vote on their final budget. The school board will meet at the high school auditorium and the commission will meet at the courthouse.

home to parents Sept. 9,� said Morgan. “I was wondering how that was going.� Goforth then read from a prepared statement. “At that meeting, I was both upset and concerned about our budget,� said Goforth. “I strongly and in an extremely upset manner expressed my frustration with the situation. I charged the staff with assessing how the situation could be addressed and left the room. I agree with the staff that parents should be notified. The staff decided to compose a letter that would be sent to the principals. Which staff members actually composed the letter is immaterial. The purpose was to inform, not to inflame. Parents needed to be aware of the cuts the school board had made the previous night. Arrangements for school transpor-

tation needed to be made. I was aware the situation had been addressed. As Director of Union County Schools, whether I saw the letter or not, the responsibility rests on my shoulders. I assume the responsibility for this action, and I would like for the matter to be closed because we have important business in balancing our budget.� There was no further discussion of the letter during the meeting, and school board members say the origin of the letter is not their main concern. The concern, according to Morgan and other school board members who wished to remain anonymous is whether they can trust Goforth’s budget recommendations in light of his responses to the letter controversy.

Goforth proposes cuts By Cindy Taylor The Union County school board held a special called workshop Sept. 26 to review budget cut options. Fourteen items totaling $776,000 were presented by Director of Schools Wayne Goforth. The proposed cuts included eliminating all travel; allowing the position of Horace Maynard Middle School assistant principal to remain open; cutting coaching supplements; cutting classroom teachers, music teachers and guidance counselors; as well as cutting 13 bus days. These 13 days were in-service days and snow days when students are not at school, and many present questioned why drivers had been getting paid for those to start with. The board had many questions for both Goforth and Business Manager Glenn Coppock, along with their own ideas on how money

could be saved, such as decreasing or eliminating some staff in the central office. “My main goal is to keep the sports program and not stop buses,� said Goforth early in the meeting. School board member Don Morgan pointed out that the proposed budget cuts did not impact any central office staff. The special education department did,

The letter that just won’t die From page 1 supervisors to meet at (the) central office, and during that meeting suggested we get the word out to the parents about the County Commission meeting and what could happen,� said Oaks. “Another person was asked to draft a letter but did not have access to a computer at that time. That person asked me if I would write the letter on my computer. I drafted the letter as requested and sent it as an attachment with an email to all the principals. The letter was not my idea, nor was it Director Goforth’s idea. This was a unanimous decision among the principals.� According to Oaks, all central office supervisors were aware the letter was

going out, read the letter and made edits as needed. Oaks said that she and Attendance Director Roxanne Patterson took the rough draft to Goforth, who looked it over before it was sent. According to a central office staff member who wished to remain anonymous, Goforth said later that he does not recall seeing the letter prior to it being sent out and has adamantly denied the same in public. At the end of the special called workshop by the school board Sept. 26, Morgan reminded Goforth that he had made a promise regarding the letter. “Mr. Goforth, you promised you would investigate the origin of the letter sent

Janet Holloway, founder of the Walk for Beth, with Leigh Ellington

Walking for Beth “In this economy I was really worried about raising funds this year,” said Janet Holloway, Walk for Beth founder and parent of the walk’s namesake, Beth Holloway. Beth passed away a few years ago due to cystic fibrosis, and her mom decided four years ago that she would start the walk to benefit the CF Foundation. Turns out that Holloway had no reason to worry. The fourth annual walk garnered fewer walkers than usual but raised more than $13,000. “They are just so close to a cure,” said Holloway. “I am so thankful for everyone who has come out and who donated. The lives of CF people are so much better than 30 years ago.” “We do six walks in East Tennessee,” said Leigh Ellington from the ETCFF. “Janet does an incredible job here and has a really special thing going. The support she gets from the community is empowering and such an encouragement to all the other walks. She sets a good example for us.” As always, a silent auction and bake sale accompanied

Crossroads time in Tennessee TALES OF TENNESSEE | Marvin West

I

do believe this is the crossroads. A victory over Georgia would give Tennessee a chance to develop into a successful team. A loss will mean more of that “remember November” stuff. Don’t count this one just yet. Defeating Georgia is not a given. It is a possibility. This is the conference foe most likely to fall to the Volunteers in October. Give that some thought. The crossroads seems an ap-

propriate time to tell you some of what I know about football. It is a game of fundamentals, blocking, tackling, running, throwing, catching, kicking – oh yes, the kicking part is very important. So is the center snap. Getting the ball to the quarterback is one of the elementary basics, somewhere soon after being able to tie shoes and line up properly. In another world, Bob Davis passed the ball to tailbacks and fullbacks for

An instrument of God’s peace CROSS CURRENTS | Lynn Hutton Here is a call for the endurance of the saints, those who keep the commandments of God and hold fast to the faith of Jesus. (Revelation 14:12 NRSV) Lord, make me an instrument of thy peace; where there is hatred, let me sow love; where there is injury, pardon; where there is doubt, faith; where there is despair, hope; where there is darkness, light; and where there is sadness, joy. (St. Francis of Assisi, Italy, 13th century)

T

omorrow (Oct. 4) is the feast day of St. Francis of Assisi, and though much of Christendom does not celebrate the lives or feast days of saints, here is one we should all notice. Francis was born about 1181, in Assisi, to a prosperous textile merchant. He grew up with privilege and took an active role in the commercial, political and social life of his home town

– a small town perched high on a hillside, with winding medieval streets, and a church overlooking the vast valley floor below. It is breathtaking, even today. He fought in a war between Assisi and Perugia, was captured and imprisoned for almost two years. The suffering he saw during the war and his subsequent imprisonment caused him to consider the meaning and

an entire career without one errant snap. Robert R. Neyland expected no less. Football is a game of speed and spirit and strength and courage. Almost everybody gets knocked down. Winners rise up to fight again. Football is a game of inches, fingertips, two blades of grass between in and out of bounds, one more link of chain for a first down. Little things often make big differences. There is a prize for attention to details. Of course football is coaching, preparation, conditioning, strategy, communications, motivation. Coaching is sound judgment, critical insight, intuitive decisions or good guesses. It may or may not be quick quips or fancy pants. Oops, almost forgot the most

purpose of his life. In 1205, he saw a vision of Jesus, an experience which changed Francis’ life forever. He disowned his father, rejected his inheritance, and began serving the poor and rebuilding churches. He is perhaps best known among Protestants as the author of a prayer (partially quoted above) and the hymn “Canticle of the Sun,” which appears in our hymnals as “All Creatures of Our God and King.” He is known also as someone who truly loved and cared for “all creatures.” He famously fed the animals, and statues of the gentle saint surrounded by small animals are frequently placed in gardens. In addition to his poetry, the gentle saint left us some sound advice in various quotes attributed to him. Here are two of my favorites: “Preach the Gospel at all times, and when necessary, use words.” “If God can work through me, he can work through anyone.” St. Francis finished his prayer (partially quoted above) this way:

important part: Coaching is recruiting. To the romantic, football is Saturdays, pigs in blankets and boiled shrimp on a tasty tailgate menu, full stadium, crisp marching band, color, pageantry, excitement and fewer commercials on the Jumbothon. To the realist, football is results. As these Volunteers approach the crossroads, you ask what is Tennessee football? Obviously, it is not what it once was. Last year, inexperience and lack of depth and shortage of talent were valid excuses. A few sideline mistakes contributed to the losing season. The weak link, the offensive line, is a year older. In my infinite wisdom, I told you in August that it might not be a year better. Offensive line play, a unified effort, is

more complicated than it appears. A pancake, two knockbacks and a whiff can result in a fractured play. Tennessee’s running attack is a myth. There is none, no matter what Buffalo said. The Vols might push around little leaguers but they can’t go against the big boys. That’s what Derek Dooley calls SEC rivals. In fact, they are not bigger, just tougher. This is not yet a well-coached team. It does have heart. Some of those orange shirts have gladiators inside. They do not always run to the correct places or lock up on hits but they do compete. That is encouraging. Maybe this week they will get more things right. This is the crossroads. Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is westwest6@netzero.com.

Sharps Chapel gets new awnings

Drum Major Kayla Fee brought home a “Superior” rating. Photo by C. Taylor

By Cindy Taylor Sharps Chapel Elementary School principal Bryan Shoffner saw a need for two new awnings at the school, and he jumped right on it. The awnings, one for the bus load end of the gym and one for the entrance to the new classrooms, will help keep traffic from backing up onto Sharps Chapel Road and will enhance the beauty of the school.

Jamie Callahan, Tim Sharp and Greg Raley constructed the awnings and finished the project in record time. All three builders live in Sharps Chapel. “Jamie Callahan has an impeccable reputation for being exceedingly generous and thorough in his workmanship,” said PTO president Kim Ray. “He almost always charges very little if any labor cost and is very accommo-

dating with ideas and follow up. Tim and Greg have built houses for years locally.” Since the school didn’t have funding for the awnings, Shoffner asked the PTO to raise money for the project. “Obviously, we decided this was a good investment that served the entire school community and constituted an important element of the aesthetics of our school site,” said Ray.

Union County High School Athlete of the Week Andrew Zielinski By Cindy Taylor Andrew Zielinski is not only the male half of the twin team of Ashley and Andrew, but he is also an integral part of the Union County High School Patriots varsity football team. Zielinski plays guard for the offensive line and is the punter for the defense. Zielinski says the team is doing alright, but he feels they

need to work better together, especially on their plays. Zielinski has been instrumental in setting up field position for his team by keeping his punts inside the opponent’s 10-yard line on many occasions. “Andrew is a very dedicated and much improved player over the past few years,” said coach Danny Satterfield. “He is one of our major leaders on the line and a role model on and off the field.”
