Guilty of Gambling? Another tale from Union County’s past See page 4


As the holiday season began, another season came to a close. The Union County Youth Soccer League ran from September to mid-November and drew kids of all ages, but now they have put away their cleats until next year. Facilitators Wendi and Brett Pursel had a dream to bring youth soccer to Union County. What started out a bit slowly grew to more than 75 participants once word got out and children rushed to sign up, many of whom had never touched a soccer ball before. “There was not a youth soccer team in Union County,” said Wendi. “The Union County Youth Sports and Little League decided to let us join with them because they needed people who knew about soccer.” The kids played against each other until David Burk at Horace Maynard Middle School decided

that his students could come and play to give the newbies experience. The Horace Maynard girl’s soccer team traveled all the way to Sharps Chapel to play on their own time and at their own expense. Wendi thanked Clayton Homes for their donations, as well as Sunset Bay Homeowners Association and Tennessee Homefinders. Volunteer coaches were Josh Woodie, Scott Simpson, Julie Kitts, Bill Boggs, Kermy Holloway, Cindy Lay, Justin Collins, Meaghan Yadon, Brett Pursel, Jenny Allen and Paul Mills. Mindy Rouse from the Northside YMCA in Halls volunteered her time as referee. “Children who had never picked up a ball fell in love with soccer,” said Wendi. “This is a co-ed league and was so successful we plan to continue it next year.”

By Cindy Taylor Union County’s Alternative School was established some years ago to aid students who had difficulty adjusting to middle and high school. Now, Union County can offer the same service to elementary students thanks to the newly opened Elementary Middle Alternative School (EMAS). Classes for middle and elementary are now housed in the same building since Paulette opened and a building became available on the Maynardville Elementary School campus. Lisa Carter took the position of principal just before the beginning of this school year and has already seen

success for those attending. “We welcome students who are unable to stay on task in a regular classroom setting,” said Carter. “We also have some special education students who don’t handle switching classrooms well.” Carter has taught in Union County Schools for the past 17 years in many capacities at Maynardville Elementary, Horace Maynard Middle School and Union County High School. “I loved working in the alternative school environment at the high school level,” said Carter. EMAS teacher Leeona Oszust has a special education certification as well as

an elementary certification and has worked in Union County Schools more than 15 years. Vernon Stubblefield is an educational assistant at EMAS and has been with Union County Schools for 19 years. One of the services provided at EMAS is an accelerated program. Students who have failed a grade have the opportunity to work hard, advance to their appropriate grades and graduate on time. Along with their required daily work, they take three formative tests during the year and TCAP in the spring. Each student’s advancement is determined by a combination of grades and tests. Other programs offered are

the behavior and disciplinary placements. EMAS follows the same curriculum as the elementary and middle schools, and occasional field trips are also offered. Students are required to perform community service

such as trash pick-up and aluminum can collecting to purchase books for their library. The school provides snack backpacks that students can take home if needed, and daily snacks are also provided through Second Harvest.

Business of the week American Elite Realty

By Cindy Taylor If you’re thinking it’s time to make a change in your living quarters, American Elite Realty hopes you will look to them. Husband and wife team Adam and Lujuanda Collins bring past experience that gets the job done. “We treat everyone the same,” said Adam. “It doesn’t matter if you want to buy or sell a $50,000 home or a $500,000 home. We will work just as hard for you.” Collins says business has been pretty good since opening two years ago in Union County, despite a down economy. “We’re in the business to get people into homes,” said Adam. “We want to help get them away from renting and into an investment.” American Elite Realty can help people qualify for a home through USDA with an initial cost of only $375 for the appraisal fee. The company has sold homes all over the Knoxville area and can work an FHA loan for

only 3.5 percent down. This is often less than rent with a security deposit, and American Elite Realty has more than 35 lenders with whom they work. Collins says the biggest market right now is for homes between $75,000 and $150,000. Some developers are even offering 100 percent financing. “I’m not the kind of person who is going to try and sell you a house you can’t afford,” said Adam. “Just because you’re approved for $200,000, that doesn’t mean I’m going to try and put you in a house for that amount. Our customers come first. If they tell me they are comforta comfortable with a certain mo monthly paymen ment, that is wh what I look for. I don’t want them to be worried abo pa aboutt making payments.” American Elite Realty is located at 1709 Tazewell Pike, Suite C, next to American First Financial Services and can be reached at 406-2986, by email at collinssells@ or online at www.

Chiropractic for college students Chiropractic Outlook By Dr. Darrell Johnson, DC


hy would a carefree college student be interested in chiropractic care? What possible benefit could there be for young, healthy students with their whole lives ahead of them? Well, not all of college life is carefree. Particularly if the student is truly a student. Carrying a heavy, textbook-laden backpack is hard on the back and shoulders, as is spending long hours hunched over a laptop or a book in the library

or a dorm room. College students’ sleeping habits are notoriously suspect, as well. Sleeping curled up in a chair after an allnight cram session is not the best thing for longterm back health. And the college experience is not devoid of stress. Whether it’s academics, athletics or general social interaction, college life is not without its share of stress. Chiropractic care is designed to keep the body in tune and specializes

in keeping the vertebrae of the spine properly aligned. The rigors of college life can wear on the body. Chiropractic treatment can keep the body and the mind functioning at their best. If you are the parent of a college student, encourage them to look into Chiropractic 101.

Guilty of gambling?

Seniors celebrate birthdays



ccording to Webster’s New World College Dictionary, 4th edition, gambling is: “To play games of chance for money or some other state,” or “To take a risk in order to gain some advantage.” This week, I came across a newspaper article relating a story from the 1860s. In it, a Union County man reminisced about almost getting “churched” for gambling! A Mr. Brock owned a store at Hogskin or Blackfox, and people were there on a Saturday morning with Mr. Brock organizing a “beef shoot.” As all little boys would want to do, a little boy in the community was at the store and wanted to participate. It was known in the community that he had developed the skills of a good marksman. He was asked to purchase a chance to shoot, but he told them

he had no money. A Mr. Cook, who just happened to be the “Squire” of the district, was also in attendance to support the event, but he didn’t feel he was a very good shot. So, he made a deal with the little boy that he (Mr. Cook) would buy the opportunity to shoot but let the little boy shoot for him. If the little boy won, they would split the prize. It so happened that the little boy did win, and his prize was a hind quarter of beef. Word soon got around the community about the “beef shoot,” and it became a matter to be taken up by the church. The little boy, a Christian, was to come before the church to repent or be turned out of the church. On that occasion, there was quite a trial by the members of the church. They made their case and decided

the little boy was “guilty of the sin of gambling” and recommended turning him out of the church. They did, however, give the little boy the opportunity to defend himself. They asked if he was sorry, and, of course, he told the truth – that he didn’t know he’d done wrong, that he was proud of his ability to shoot, and that the family was enjoying the wonderful “ham” of beef. Why, no, he wasn’t sorry. After all, he had shot for Mr. Cook – and wasn’t he the Squire of the district? Case dismissed! Note: After the boy grew up he operated a flour and corn mill in the area and told the story to Claude Capps who, as a 10-yearold, had taken some corn to the mill to be ground.

Season review: Bad team got worse TALES OF TENNESSEE | Marvin West


ood news for Derek Dooley. The president has a lower approval rating. Bad news regarding job security: Dooley’s grip is based more on the cost and confusion of replacing him than on prowess as coach of the Volunteers. That information does not discourage optimists. They say we’ll get ’em next year. Tennessee doesn’t need much, just better players and better ideas. Pessimists are certain the end is near, that tradition is doomed. The power T has turned to script. The orange checkerboard is fading

to pale yellow. Once-proud Vols are doormats of the Southeastern Conference. We realists recognize problems. Disorganization and ineptitude are ugly words. Losing is worse. All three are now linked to Tennessee football. So are indecision and token effort. This time, there is no skinny, little bowl to mask the hurt. A mediocre Kentucky team, minus a quarterback, somehow stopped monopoly. SEC big boys rang up lopsided scores and took a knee so it wouldn’t be worse. Highlight was what happened to Cincinnati.

The watching ones CROSS CURRENTS | Lynn Hutton I wait for the Lord, my soul waits, and in his word I hope; my soul waits for the Lord, more than those who watch for the morning, more than those who watch for the morning. (Psalm 130:5-6 NRSV) God of the watching ones, The waiting ones, The slow and suffering ones, The angels in heaven, The child in the womb, Give us your benediction, Your good word for our souls, That we might rest and rise In the kindness of your company. Amen. (“God of the Watching Ones,” Cloth for the Cradle, Iona Community Wild Goose Worship Group)

of us watch for Christmas with eyes wide open, standing on tiptoe in anticipation and expectancy, with eager hearts and open hands. It has been my experience, and maybe yours, that Christmas will come when it will come, and not before. It will appear at an odd moment, perhaps when we least expect it. It may come early in December, and we will fear that it is over too early. Or it may tarry until the very last moment and we will despair, thinking that this We must watch for Christ- is the year, at last, when it bypasses us completely. mas.

Thrill of the year was an overtime victory over Vandy and some post-game jumping up and down. Whoopee. In chilly summation, a bad team got worse. There were second-half shutdowns and a 42-point rout. For the first time in a long, long time, the Vols are irrelevant. It is too early to tell about recruiting. Some commitments may come unglued. Prep stars afflicted with pomposity may not want to associate with losers. I thought this team would go 7-5 with a chance for a happy holiday. As is the custom in today’s world, I have excuses for erroneous expectations. I did not anticipate the loss of Tyler Bray for six games, five while injured and the last one in a funk. I didn’t expect Justin Hunter to go down without being hit. I did not foresee and cannot explain the continued absence of a running attack. I have trouble grasping the revolving-door secondary. I could not believe the

that a good word will come. But around me I see people who don’t expect Christmas in any form: no worship, no celebration, no feasting, no family, no gifts, no peace, no joy, no contentment. I am terribly sad for them. I am equally sad for those who think that Christmas is only about celebration and feasting and gifts. They have missed Christmas as well. Perhaps to catch Christmas in the act, we have to know what Christmas is. To watch for it, we need to be sure we will recognize it when it comes. That, for me at least, is what Advent is all about. This is a time of watching, of listening, of hoping, of expecting. This is a time of waiting, of preparing, of hollowing out our hearts to make room. This is a time of reading, of singing, of praying, of hoping for the One who comes. This is an acknowledgment deep in our hearts – conscious or otherwise – that if we allow Him into our world, then unquestionably our hearts, our homes, our lives – everything – will change. So, line the cradle with strips of softest cloth. Ready it for the child you expect. And watch.


Vols had to switch centers in the seventh game. Never have I seen such futile kicking. Missed tackles, missed opportunities and timeouts to correct alignment or get 11 players on the field were maddening. I repeat my mid-season remark: This was not a well-coached team. The 5-7 record was worse than it appears. Montana, Buffalo and MTSU barely count. October was horrendous. Think how bad November might have been without the orange ceramic dog. Optimists point to the young roster that will mature and return as sophomores and juniors. Maybe that is good. Pessimists, after analyzing the lack of development, stopped whispering and shouted out loud that Dooley can’t do it, never has done it. We realists realize the coach has a contract. Economics and common sense dictate continuation. Dooley deserves several more minutes to get things fi xed.


Positives? Da’Rick Rogers has unusual talent but seniors implied he is selfish. Ben Martin, old warrior, didn’t do much but did the best he could on bad legs. Congratulations to Malik Jackson and best wishes for future employment. I respect Matt Simms for hanging in there. Freshman Brian Randolph can be a really good safety. Other honorable young men need a leader, an Al Wilson-type. Alas, they are rare. Derrick Brodus was the strangest story. The walk-on kicker, left off the dress-out list, was at home on a Saturday lateafternoon, napping on the couch, when coaches discovered they had no body or soul to attempt extra points or field goals. Kickoff and chaos were near. Oh my, what to do? Brodus was awakened. He rushed to the stadium without combing his hair. He performed flawlessly. Little else worked so well.
