Salute to farmers

National Ag Day was a hit as several groups said thanks to local food providers. Held from at the Union CoOp, organizers served biscuits from Hardee’s and homemade desserts. More than 50 farmers signed in, and many more grabbed a treat while shopping. Sponsors included the Ag Extension Service, the Soil Conservation District, the Farmers’ Market, the Co-op and the Union County Farm Bureau Women. Will Phillips, manager of the Will Phillips Co-op, said his store will stay open until 5 p.m. on Wednesdays starting April 3. The Co-op has closed at noon on Wednesdays and Saturdays. Phillips said there is no change on Saturdays. Phillips and his wife, Sarah Berry Phillips, recently bought a farm in Sharps Chapel. He holds a bachelor’s degree from Tennessee Tech and a master’s in plant sciences from UT. Phillips said the Union Co-op is an “independent co-operative owned by the farmers of Union County. It’s the smallest indepen- Betty Sharp of the Union County Farm Bureau Women and Sandra Greene of the Soil Conservation District welcome dent co-op in the state.” farmers to the Ag Day celebration.

The three attended classes for two years, meeting for eight hours every other month, and were tested after each course.

Meaning behind the image By Cindy Taylor Pat Clapsaddle literally throws her art together. But there is nothing random about the outcome. Pat is a potter who works primarily in terra cotta clay. But she also explores the effects of majolica, a technique developed centuries ago in Spain, and sgraffito, the use of a contour outline to produce an incised line in the majolica. Her subjects range from faces, animals and insects to landscapes, flowers and still lifes. She imprints the clay with found objects and her own hand-cut printing blocks. Awards won for her art are too numerous to mention. “Many of my pieces are representative of the area where I live or places I have visited,” said Clapsaddle. “Originally I Pat Clapsaddle displays a few of her favorite pieces.

The state Legislature passed a law in 2007 requiring each municipality to have a certified financial officer.

versity of Cincinnati. Her education continued at Kent State, Indianapolis, Phoenix, Ashland and Lake Erie colleges and universities. She has taken numerous workshops through the Savannah School of Art and Design and most recently through the Pottery Council. To say she is a master at her craft would be a gross understatement. Though she learned her skill in high school and has worked in her field more than 40 years, she has only been showing and selling her more recent work since 1999. It is a compilation of all she has learned. “The surface of my current work was from the training at Indianapolis University,” she said. “That is where I learned the techniques of majolica.” Clapsaddle said her studies with teaching artists during the college years had a direct impact on her current work in form, surface and structure. She now incorporates multiple methods of design and color using surface

Going for the grants By Libby Morgan Finding and applying for grants is one of the single most important tasks for communities nowadays. There is a mind-boggling amount of money available out there for tourism, education, the arts, economic development, help for troubled teens, municipal planning … the list goes on and on. Most grants require matching funding; that is, the entity receiving the grant must show it has the wherewithal to either match the grant dollars offered, or fill in the difference with “in-kind” value of volunteered services and donated goods. The Union County Chamber of Commerce, as a nonprofit agency, subscribes to a grant search engine and shares the information with schools, churches and other nonprofits throughout the county. “Our biggest Chamber grant so far came from the National Endowment for the Arts/Appalachian Regional Commission for the tourism workshop we held two years ago. We were able to bring in nationally recognized experts to speak and to carry out a great program. The grant was for $12,000,” says Julie Graham, Chamber director. “We worked for two years to make the Chamber eligible for the PlanET initiative, which brought the downtown planning meeting to us recently. “We have used grant money, combined with

private and corporate donations, to create the Chamber website,, and to fund our inclusion in the Norris Lake Marina Guide. “The Chamber depends on grants to work, and we apply for all the grants for which we are eligible. Annually, we have been involved in bringing in $12,000 to $18,000 per year through grants. “We are able to provide demographic information and letters of support for other grant writers in the county, many of whom

work with the school system. Our school system, by the way, is very good at writing grants. “In order for Union County to attract jobs, we must be prepared to demonstrate the county’s commitment to sustainability as we compete for business and industry investment. We have been briefed on the TVA’s Economic Development Valley Sustainable Communities Program. “Increasingly, companies seeking to expand or relocate are using sustain-

able community programs as a differentiator in making that final decision. With the right strategy, we may be able to become a Valley Sustainable Community. “iCARE-TN (Initiative for Community and Adolescent Resilience) is a great example of what grant money can do in a community. We wouldn’t have this program here without that grant. “Grants allow us, as a community, to go down paths we normally don’t go down,” Graham said.

Partin joins Chamber board By Sandra Clark Kim Partin attended her first meeting as the newest member of the board Kim Partin of directors for the Union County Chamber. Partin is the county’s director for Senior Citizens Home Assistance Service Inc. Partin said she is proud to represent the health care industry on the board. Her agency is a nonprofit that has doubled in size under her leadership. “We have 16 clients now and I hope to double again this year,” she said. The agency offers in-home care for seniors, ranging from running errands to around-the-clock care. Services include personal care (bathing, eating, grooming); companionship (bill paying, reminders for medication or appointments, pet care); homemaker services (light housekeeping, meals, laundry, grocery shopping); and transportation (shopping, doctors appointments). The service extends to several East Tennessee counties. Info: 992-9886 or www.

Flying pigs at Sharps Chapel By Cindy Taylor When pigs fly, Sharps Chapel Elementary School 1st-grade teacher Brittany Berry gets her dad to catch one so she can kiss it. While that is an exaggeration, it’s only a small one. Brittany Berry and the Sole Sisters team are in training for the Flying Pig Half Marathon to raise money for cancer research for the Leukemia and Lymphoma Society. “I challenged the kids to help raise money,” said Berry. “Kissing a pig sounded like a fun idea, so I promised to kiss a pig if students raised $1,000. I have been practicing for about a week.” Students met and surpassed that goal in two weeks, and Berry admitted she was only kidding about the practice but said she really will kiss a pig. Berry and the pig would meet for the first time during the kissing. On March 15, she had to put her money where

Berry’s dad, Erwin Berry, prepped and held “Willie” as Berry made her approach. The kissing came off without a hitch. More than half of Sharps Chapel’s 162 students participated by raising at least $10 each. Three students raised more than $100 each: Haley Collins, 4th grade; William Collins, 2nd grade; and Gabby Green, 3rd grade. Pre-K raised $263; kindergarten classes raised $331.09; 1st grade, $383.72; 2nd grade, $738.63; 3rd grade, $260.52; 4th grade, $317.61; and 5th grade, $176.34. Additional donations brought the grand total to more than $2,500. “I am so proud of these kids,” said Berry. “I thought we might reach $1,000 but they hit that and just kept on going.”

Youth hopes for a clean county By Libby Morgan

Turkeys are plentiful A “rafter” of wild turkeys enjoys the rain in a field by Loyston Road. One tom was flirting with 11 hens. The first weekend of turkey season in Chuck Swan Wildlife Management Area is March 28-30. Said area manager Dustin McCubbins: “We’ve been seeing quite a few birds at Chuck Swan, but so far only in bachelor groups and hen parties. They’ll be gobbling pretty soon up here.” Photo by Libby Morgan

How to lose a horse Before the impoundment of Norris Lake, the communities of Big Sinks and Blue Springs Hollow were side by side. Now they are separated by the lake with Blue Springs Hollow in the Braden community. The Big Sinks community derives its name from the numerous sinkholes that dot the landscape. There are a series of large sinkholes all around Big Sinks Road. Bill Anderson, now of Corryton, recalls his grandfather Anderson telling him about planting crops – especially corn – in those sinkholes. They plowed in circles beginning at the top and going to the lowest level. The deepest part of these sinkholes was like river bottom. His grandfather said they were plowing with a team of horses when apparently a larger hole opened up and the soil or quicksand began to swallow the horses. They got the bridle off one and that horse got out, but the other one disappeared into the hole. Bill says one of the holes is very near the road, and he

Bonnie Peters

believes the depth must be at least 150 feet. When TVA was acquiring land for the Norris Dam Project, workers poured dye in some of the holes and the dye showed up in White Hollow. Myrel Dykes had a good Big Sinks story. The late Norma Jean Brantley Bush was having a discussion with her son, who believed he was right about whatever the issue and told his mother he knew he was right because he’d been to college. She reputedly told him, “So what? I went to Big Sinks School.” A few weeks ago I wrote about “Blue Mud,” and I’ve found no documentation about Blue Springs. Since these places were so close before being flooded, it would make sense that the soil around the springs in

that area is of the same type that is in the Big Ridge/Blue Mud area and appears to look blue. An interesting bit of history that ties these two communities together is that Blue Springs Primitive Baptist Church was established in Blue Springs Hollow in the early 1800s. Legend has it that one of the residents who hauled corpses in his wagon over to the cemetery in Blue Springs Hollow said he was tired of jolting dead bodies over that rough road, and he began a cemetery where the Blue Springs Baptist Church now stands. After the cemetery was established in the mid1800s, the church building was disassembled and moved to the location of the cemetery at the intersection of Big Sinks and Sharps Chapel roads. Some years ago Vera Stiner wrote a history of the Blue Springs Baptist Church. At some point the congregation changed from Primitive Baptist to Missionary Baptist. I hope to obtain a copy of this history, which may shed more light on the names of these communities. If anyone can add to this story, please email me at or call me at 687-3842.

“Emmaline Perry is a unique individual who took it upon herself to contact Keep Union County Beautiful and to make a longterm commitment to keep her family’s neighborhood roadsides free of trash. She is very dedicated – she saw a cause and jumped in, with the help of her family,” says Jackie Erlbacher, board member of KUCB. Emmaline, 14, already has a record of community service spanning several years. She’s an educational volunteer for the 4-H, teaching pet care at Luttrell Elementary and holding fundraisers for the Humane Society. At her 12th birthday party, she asked her guests to bring gifts of pet needs for the shelter pantry in lieu of presents for her. “I hope I can make just a little bit of difference and help others become encouraged and educated about the offensive habit of littering,” says Emmaline. “Everyone can stop throwing trash out if they just realize the damage it does to our environment.” Her mom, Tamelia Jenkins, says, “Emmaline’s efforts to raise community awareness to the harmful effects of littering is commendable. I appreciate her commitment to Keep Union County Beautiful Adopt-ARoad program along with setting an example for other citizens, young and old alike.” Union County has weak litter enforcement, according to Erlbacher, and the KUCB board plans to resubmit changes in the litter ordinances to county commission soon.

Track team saves money Tennessee football is jumping around in rehabilitation. We don’t know how long it will take the Vols to learn to win. Tennessee basketball generated some excitement but that was a tease. It just wasn’t good enough. Tennessee baseball is a maybe for some day in the distant future. An old Vol, trying to decide whether Volunteer athletics is a comedy or tragedy, spotted a silver lining to the disaster known as track and field. Considering that UT sports is a deficit operation, think how much was saved on the NCAA indoor

championships. Only three athletes qualified for the trip to exotic Fayetteville, Ark. The school could have spent less if more administrators, coaches and support people had stayed home. Best I can tell, they didn’t accomplish much. OK, Tennessee’s one-

man team produced progress. Freshman Jake Blankenship placed fourth in the pole vault. Last year, masculine Vols failed to scratch. Nothing. Zero. The women have had relatively recent success. This time the two who went drew a blank. Failing to score had happened before – if you go back 13 years. This is what Tennessee track has become – five total points for the combined forces. Thirty-nine teams finished ahead of the Orangemen. Everybody who did anything finished ahead of the women.

What will people think? Every day he was teaching in the temple. The chief priests, the scribes, and the leaders of the people kept looking for a way to kill him; but they did not find anything they could do, for all the people were spellbound by what they heard. (Luke 19: 47-48 NRSV)

Public opinion is a funny thing. Nowadays we have pollsters and news anchors and pundits to let us know what “the people” are thinking. We hear from them daily the latest on who or what is “trending.” (Who could have imagined 10 years ago that “trend” would become a verb?) We know more and more details about the lives of people who are famous mostly for being famous, not for any particular service to humankind or for any leadership ability or for extraordinary courage.

But in 1st century Palestine, the people were busy spreading their cloaks on the road to honor Jesus as he passed by. At the same time, the Pharisees were planning to kill him. So much for public opinion. I am reminded of President John Kennedy, who rode through Dallas with throngs of people lining the streets, waving and cheering. Somewhere in that crowd, there was a man (or several men, we may never know) who had other thoughts and plans. The president was young and handsome and soak-

ing up the adoration of the crowds, when suddenly shots were fired, and the president was dead. Will Rogers said, “You can fool some of the people all of the time, and all of the people some of the time….” The Pharisees, however, were not able to fool all of the people. The people could see that Jesus was different: wise, deep, canny and spiritual in a way they had not seen before. He was connected to the Source. He was different. As we begin this Holy Week, let us consider the

Come to the Water There is healing to be found in the Sun. So I am not going to lie here: I have yet to reach my 40th Fr. Aaron Wessman birthday, but I am clearly feeling the effects of aging. Some people say that it is all in my head. And I sure don’t want to admit it. But I know it’s true. It is something I just can’t ignore. Now I won’t even talk about my prematurely greying hair (thanks for the genes mom and dad). But I will say that I can no longer go jogging or play basketball without experiencing soreness and pain for the next few days—sometimes sadly, even weeks. Mainly it is in my knees, which I think have worn away over the years from too much strenuous use. In fact, it has gotten so bad, that when it is cold outside, or when a storm is fast approaching, the words of my elders sometimes come from my mouth (words that I never thought I would say): the weather is changing—I can feel it in my knees. But I have also noticed the opposite effect: when the sun comes out, and the day is warm, I can walk outside and it feels as if the aches and pains in my body slowly fade away. The sun’s rays rest on my body and I feel I am given new life and strength. I can feel the pain subside. Clearly, there is something healing about walking in the warmth and light of the Sun. I think it is also the case that with

time, our soul begins to wear out, and it experiences spiritual aches and pains—sometimes even suffering. A loved one hurts us and we become separated. Our children disobey us and we exchange harmful words. We give way to temptation and find ourselves struggling with addiction or infidelity. The effects of living in a complicated and trying world wear on us, and we can no longer deny it: Our souls have been tarnished and are in need of healing. Thanks be to God there is a place, indeed a person, we can go to for healing. In the Gospel of Luke Jesus says to those around him: “Those who are healthy do not need a physician, but the sick do. I have not come to call the righteous to repentance but sinners (5: 31-32).” Jesus is the physician for our souls. No matter what we have done. No matter what we have experienced. He desires to heal our soul. He will not ask any questions. He will not place any blame. He simply waits patiently for our return to him. And like the rays of sun shining down on our wearied, tired and aching bodies, he sends down his rays of healing grace to touch our soul and restore us back to life. Life is tough. In time both our bodies and our souls begin to ache. Praise God that there is healing to be found in the Son. Fr. Aaron Wessman, Associate Pastor, Blessed Teresa of Calcutta Catholic Mission, 4365 Maynardville Hwy. 992-7222.

The Volunteers were much better in the Southeastern Conference. The men finished in a tie for eighth. They nipped Kentucky and placed well ahead of Ole Miss and South Carolina. Mississippi State and Vanderbilt chose not to play. Tennessee women earned eighth place all by themselves. The Vols didn’t win a single event but Blankenship was the second-best vaulter. Chase Brannon, another vaulter, was fourth. There is a story behind this show of strength. Giving credit where credit is due, Russ Johnson is in his seventh year as the truly volunteer coach of the men’s pole vault. He does it for the love of the

game. His people have won 10 SEC titles. Johnson was an academic all-American at UT. He was pretty good as an athlete. He stands second on Tennessee’s storied pole vault list with a best of 18 feet, 6.5 inches, trailing only collegiate record holder Lawrence Johnson. In real life, Russ works as a physical therapist and site coordinator at Ortho Tennessee Therapy, part of Knoxville Orthopedic Clinic. Now, for the rest of the story: Merging the men and women’s track teams under the direction of J.J. Clark sounded like an OK idea in 2010. He had two national championships and three SEC titles as the women’s coach from 2003-09. What has happened

since is inexplicable. One of the most storied collegiate programs in America has fallen into irrelevance. Out of sight. Off the cliff. Fortunately, there are no complaints about inequality. Both teams are bad. The future? There might be one. Sometime. Three freshmen picked up SEC points. There is a possibility other young Vols will improve with age. J.J. delivered a summation statement: “We have to definitely do some evaluation on how we can be in better contention for outdoors. Overall, we have to continue to move to a higher level.” Coach didn’t say how.

ways in which Jesus was different. Let us watch his life unfold. Let us walk with him, see the people, hear his words, watch his movements, feel his compassion, know his sense of dread, share his anguish. Allow your imagination to picture the crowds. Hear them shout. Watch them gather around Jesus. Imagine his eyes, his expressions, the sound of his voice. Look for the disciples; observe how they respond to this festival atmosphere. Such a journey of imagination will allow you to experience some of the feelings of the crowds, the

disciples and Jesus himself. But always – forever and always – the question is the same: where would you stand when Jesus came by? Would you be one who would cheer until things began to get testy? Would you stand with him at trial, walk with him toward Golgotha, stay with him until the end? One of his friends betrayed him, some of his friends denied him, all of his friends abandoned him, except the women, who counted for so little in that culture that they were nonentities. But they were the ones who stood with him, at the foot of the

cross, along with John, the youngest of the Twelve. So in Jesus’ last hour, when he was sure that his heavenly Father had turned away from him, he was surrounded by mocking Roman soldiers, weeping faithful women, and a lad too young to do anything but remember, and remember long enough and well enough to write the story when he was himself an old man exiled on the Isle of Patmos. Remember the story this week. Walk with Jesus. Make the journey to the foot of the cross, at your church, in your home, in your heart.

The initial visit Chiropractic Outlook By Dr. Darrell Johnson, DC If you’ve never visited a chiropractor, here’s what you can expect at a first visit. The chiropractor, like any health care professional, is going to want to know about your overall health situation, and will ask you a battery of questions along those lines. Be sure to list any surgeries or injuries you’ve had over the years. Again, as with any health care professional, the chiropractor will likely check your blood pressure in line with the overall health care field’s concern about hypertension and may also want a blood sample and a urine specimen. The chiropractor may also take some X-rays and check your posture as well as your balance, muscle tone and the range of motion of various joints. It’s also not uncommon for the chiropractor to measure the length of your legs. Certain problems can be caused by legs of unequal length. If you’ve come to the chiropractor for a specific problem, naturally he or she will have you explain how the condition came about, what makes it feel better and what aggravates it. The chiropractor will then diagnose your condition and decide whether chiropractic treatment will be effective, and if it is warranted, recommend a course of treatment. Beginning a relationship with a chiropractor is a step that will help keep you feeling good and living a healthy lifestyle.
