Come to the water “Fathers, do not provoke your children to anger, but bring them up with the training and instruction of the Lord.” (Eph. 6:4)
JUNE 14 & 15
There are many ways to discipline a child, some Fr. Steve Pawelk are helpful and some are not. Paul gives very simple advice: do not use any form of discipline that angers your child, which I interpret as any means that are unjust, violent or not rooted in love. As men of God and followers of Jesus, fathers are to teach among other things the beatitudes, the great commandments and the way of sharing as promoted in Matthew 25. A contemporary challenge, however, is that many fathers are not present to discipline their children. Some work too many hours, some spend too much time to themselves or with friends, and others are not in the same home with their children. The first step of discipline is to be present for your children to establish trust that you are good, kind and loving. If there is trust, then discipline will work. Without confidence in a father’s love or trust, only fear and intimidation follow. I was blessed with a dad who
went to church, taught me to pray, and helped me use the Bible to search for answers to our daily life challenges. When myself and my siblings (all eight of us) graduated from high school we received a Bible. He said, “This is your guide book to adult life. Read it every day.” May more fathers follow the way of the Lord whether you are a stepfather, grandfather, or simply the man in the life of a child. Remember St. Joseph was a stepfather and he did a great job raising Jesus. Our children need loving fathers in their lives who know Jesus and follow His way. One’s example is more important than words. Children need to see fathers praying, worshipping in church, and giving clear witness of their faith. They need to see men helping their neighbor and being generous and merciful. With the Spirit’s help, cool dads are Christian Dads. Our kids are counting on this.

forces to sing. My personal connection to the Old Harp Singers was through my daddy’s sister, Joanna Heiskell LeBow, whose husband, Pryor Edgar LeBow, was a harp singer. We all called him “Uncle LeBow.” He was a blacksmith for the L&N Railroad. They bought a house on North Central Avenue, and he walked to work. Neither he nor Aunt Joanna ever drove a car so the “school bus” trips with the Old Harp Singers were a treat. Their Sundays were taking a streetcar or walking to First Christian
Church on Fifth Avenue and then singing with the harp singers. The following are some opportunities to hear or to participate in Harp Singing: ■ Sunday, June 22, 10 am. Franklin singing at New Bethel Cumberland Presbyterian Church, Greeneville, Tennessee; also Sunday July 13. ■ Thursday, Aug. 7, 10 a.m. to noon, Beech Grove Primitive Baptist Church, Sevier County. ■ Sunday, Aug. 17, 2:30 p.m., Little Greenbrier Schoolhouse, Great Smoky Mountains National Park; also on Aug. 17, Camp DoRe-Mi (Do-Ra-Me), a singing school for seven shapes, will be held at Wildacres Resort, Little Switzerland, North Carolina. Info: www. campdoremi.com/. ■ Sunday, Sept. 7, Cades Cove Primitive Baptist Church, Great Smoky
Mountains National Park. These dates were published at the beginning of the year, so it would be a good idea to confirm the dates before driving there. For LeBow information and more singing dates, a contact is Chaz Barber, 865-640-5226. He serves as president, Friends of the New Harp of Columbia, a small non-profit whose primary purpose is to promote shape note singing and the social and community traditions that have grown up around it and singing in the tradition of the New Harp of Columbia. Tina Becker is secretarytreasurer of Friends of the New Harp of Columbia and can be reached at 982-7777.
in 3rd grade zealously tried to refine my method, but I still struggled. In 4th grade, Ms. Wanza asked, “Didn’t Miss Florence try to teach you to write better?” Ms. Wanza said if Ms. Florence couldn’t it was hopeless and she wasn’t going to Ronnie waste time on it. I scrawled Mincey my way through Ms. Polly Dyer’s 5th grade, and then things changed. TEACHER TIME My spelling and writing teacher in Maynardlacking in the art of cursive ville Elementary’s departas I had been proficient at mentalized 6th grade was printing. Florence Chesney none other than Ms. Marie Lynch, the principal’s wife. At this tender age of 11, I feared (both literally and respectively) three beings
– God, my dad and Marie Lynch – and the order depended on whether I was at church, home or school. Whereas my earlier teachers lovingly tried to persuade me to improve penmanship, Ms. Marie took the very direct method, in dry, emphatic terms, “You can and will learn to write good cursive, or else!” I sure didn’t want to meet “Else,” and I would have done anything to keep Ms. Marie from giving me a very public tongue-lashing when her ruler demonstrated that my painfully-formed cursive was neither slanted correctly nor confined within its proper “quarter of a line.”
I didn’t enjoy this painstaking instructional experience, and I thought almost daily, “I’ll do it your way for now, you ol’ bag, and when I get out from under you I’ll do it anyway I dang please!” But good habits and pride in success won out. When 6th grade ended I was unable to go back to the old way. Today I can (without great effort, whenever I wish) write beautifully in left-handed cursive with my pencil-holding deformity. Ms. Marie retired when the school year ended in spring 1977, and she passed away in March 1979. I would love to be able to write Ms. Marie a card in beautiful cursive, hand-deliver it, shake the hand I placed it into, and thank her for giving me the now almost lost gift of good cursive penmanship. Unlike penmanship, a waning art now being resurrected, people are irreplaceable.
After last week when I began writing about the harp singers, I realized I only hit the high places. While I’m still doing that, I want to go ahead and make you aware of a few more interesting facts about the “Harp” singers. Old Harp Singers are unique to East Tennessee; however, they sing from the restored edition of the New Harp of Columbia songbook. According to Ann Strange, “Sacred Harp” is sung all over the country and is gaining popularity in Europe. The shape or shaped notes sung in East Tennessee are “Swan” shapes – named for the compiler of the song book. Another shape note tradition is called “Christian Harmony” and is popular throughout the South. All of these groups consider themselves family and frequently join
The blessing of cursive A friend once told me that her grandson, a high school junior, was denied a passport because he couldn’t sign his name. I considered my good fortune that my 2nd through 6th grade teachers taught cursive penmanship religiously. When Ms. Hazel told me to pick up that oversized first grade pencil, I did so with my left hand in a spe-
cial way no amount of teaching could change. The only other people I ever saw hold a pencil like me were Principal Joe Day and Michael Carr, a former student. Ms. Hazel tried to get me to use the right hand and hold my pencil properly, but since I printed beautifully she left me to my devices, as did Ms. Leah in 2nd grade. I was soon to prove as

Re-membered For I received from the Lord what I also handed on to you, that the Lord Jesus on the night when he was betrayed took a loaf of bread, and when he had given thanks, he broke it and said, “This is my body that is [broken] for you. Do this in remembrance of me.” (I Corinthians 11: 23-24 NRSV) I have said before in this space that sometimes I am in the slow group. I was first taken to church when I was two weeks old. I have been a Christian since I was 10 years old. I have been an ordained minister for 17 years. And still, the Bible can surprise me. Jesus’ commandment, after breaking the bread and announcing to his stunned disciples that “This is my body broken for you,” was essentially “Remember me.” As many times as I have read those words, as many times as I have heard those words spoken in services of Holy Communion, I never once “got it.” Re-member is the opposite of dismember! A broken body is one that needs to be re-membered, as in “put back together.” Jesus said, “Do this to remember me.” Just as this bread is broken for you, I am going to be broken for you. I will need you to put me back together, because the world needs me! That was a commandment, not just for Jesus’ 12 disciples, but for us as well. All of us who claim Jesus as Lord, all of us who claim to be disciples are called – no commanded – to re-member, as well as to remember, Jesus! And what, you ask, does that entail? It involves healing: the hurts of the world, the injuries of the innocent, the plight of the downtrodden, the hunger of the poor, the
loss of the orphaned, the tiredness of the weary, the sinfulness of the sinner. We are guilty of tearing apart the body of Christ – as guilty as if we had driven the nails into his hands and feet. We are guilty of ignoring the homeless, the dying, the foreigner, the despairing. Truth be told, we are all among the walking wounded, and until we fall on our knees before the nail-scarred hands and seek our own healing, we will not be whole. And in order to be remember-ers, we must be healed. Then and only then, will we be able to begin the healing of the wounds of Christ’s Body – the Church. When we can learn that all of us who call ourselves Christians belong to the same Lord, and begin to live as brothers and sisters in Christ, we will be on our way. We can join hands with Christians everywhere, put aside our denominational differences and work together to the glory of God and for the sake of our Lord, for the easing of pain, the healing of the world, the end of strife, and for the re-membering of the Body of Christ!

Basketball enthusiasm isn’t brand new Donnie Tyndall generated so much excitement with his remarkable recruiting roundup, a spur-of-the-moment thing, that basketball is suddenly a summer sport. People who didn’t know there was a Rocky Top League are now asking about rosters and schedules. Youngsters wonder if there has ever been anything like this outburst of enthusiasm. Well, the answer is yes, Tennessee has, on occasion, done well enough in baskets that fans paid to attend post-season celebrations. Those were fun times. With the almost total changing of the guards (and forwards), March seems long ago and has already been reclassified as the good, old days. Before that, Bruce Pearl pumped the Vols up to No. 1 in the country for a few minutes and, once upon a time, fell one basket short of the Final Four. That would have been a first. The Jerry Green era still confuses me but I remember highlights. In the year of our Lord 2000, the Vols won 20 of their first 23 games, racked up 26 in all and made it to the Sweet 16.
That was when Vincent Yarbrough and Tony White lit up the town. The year before was good, too. Tennessee defeated Kentucky at Rupp Arena for the first time in 20 years. Don DeVoe directed memorable accomplishments in 1978-79. His Vols whipped Kentucky three times and won the rejuvenated SEC tournament, in mothballs for 27 seasons. That team (Reggie Johnson, Terry Crosby, Gary Carter and friends) recorded Tennessee’s first NCAA tournament triumph. There was some excitement in Ray Mears’ 15 years. His teams never finished worse than third in the SEC. Unforgettable was the three-overtime victory at Mississippi State for the 1967 SEC title. That was Ron Widby, Tom Boerwin-
kle, Tom Hendrix, Bill Justus and Billy Hann. If you missed Mears, you missed a treat. A smallercollege national championship at Wittenberg was his springboard to Tennessee. Sports Illustrated featured the team pre-game meal of green Jello and oatmeal cookies and mentioned the deliberate offense, matchup zone and player discipline. Nobody in Knoxville noticed. Mears was invited in under cover of darkness and grabbed the UT job offer without even asking what his salary would be. He was otherwise very smart. He switched to orange Jello. In addition to compelling basketball, this coach offered a bag of sideshow tricks, runner-up to the Greatest Show on Earth – Globetrotter warmups, John Paschal wrestling a bear, Roger Peltz riding a unicycle while juggling three balls. The carnival pitchman was a front. Mears was a crafty, calculating, fiercely competitive fighter. He was too forthright to be a good recruiter but he did a lot
with what he got. Mears associate Stu Aberdeen signed Ernie Grunfeld and Bernard King and they created the best of times. The Mears team that took shape 50 years ago was very interesting. It won the first seven games, took two of three at the Far West Classic, lost at Vanderbilt and won 10 in a row. The trip to Alabama interrupted the fun. Kentucky won by one in Lexington and Florida was a twopoint victor in Gainesville. Those Vols – captain A.W. Davis, Widby, Howard Bayne, Larry McIntosh, Austin “Red” Robbins and some other really good guys – finished 20-5 but there was no place to go, no conference tournament, no NCAA opportunity. They finished 12-4 in the SEC. Only champions qualified. It would be a warm, fuzzy gesture if Tennessee brought back that group for a 50th reunion. Old fans could say thanks one more time to A.W. The now generation might discover Vol basketball excitement isn’t a totally new phenomenon. (Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is email@example.com).

Patterson to cheer at C-N By Libby Morgan
Union County High 2014 salutatorian Ali Patterson has received an $11,000 academic and cheerleading scholarship to Carson Newman University in Jefferson City. She has been on a cheer squad since she was four years old, and is a two-time Universal Cheerleaders Association All-American Cheerleader. Tryouts for the CNU team were held in Ali Patterson in her new Carson-Newman cheerleading April in a two-day session. “I am very excited to add uniform. Photo submitted Ali to our 2014-2015 team,” says CNU coach Christy program. She’s an impresBowlin. “She is a very tal- sive young lady, and we look ented incoming freshman forward to her being part of who is very versatile and our CNU Eagles.” offers much to enhance our Her mom, Roxanne Pat-
terson, who is the attendance supervisor for Union County Public Schools, says, “I am very proud of her continuous dedication to her teammates throughout the years and her determination and work ethic. “Cheerleading has been a part of her entire life. Since she was one, I have been coaching some age cheerleading team, so it was inevitable that she would pick up some pom poms. But it was her determination that gave her the drive to learn the skills needed to cheer at the college level. “CNU is a coed team, and Ali is having to learn new positions. She has been used primarily as a
base because she is strong and trustworthy; however, she now has been spending a lot of time flying in coed stunts. As her former coach and more as her mom, I am excited to watch her grow at CNU. “I may be a little partial, but I think she will represent Union County very well and will be an asset both in and out of uniform at CNU.” Her dad is Rodney Patterson, and her sister, Ashtyn, is a freshman AllDistrict softball pitcher and a volleyball player at UCHS. Grandparents are Stanley and the late Judy Patterson, Debbie McDearman and Dallas Hicks.

Getting parents on the same page Here are some tried and true guidelines for successful parenting: Try to set aside time on a regular basis to do something fun with your child. Never disagree about discipline in front of the children. Never give an order, request or command without being able to enforce it at the time. Be consistent, that is, reward or punish the same behavior in the same manner as much as possible. Agree on what behavior is desirable and not desirable. Agree on how to respond to undesirable behavior. Make it as clear as possible what the child is to expect if he or she performs the undesirable behavior. Make it very clear what the undesirable behavior is. It is not enough to say, “Your room is messy.” Messy should be specified in terms of exactly what is meant: “You’ve left dirty clothes on the floor, dirty plates on your desk and your bed is not made.” Once you have stated your position and the child attacks that position, do not keep defending yourself.
14, $60. Late sign-ups will be 6-8 p.m. Thursday, July 17 and 6-9 p.m. Friday, July 18, $80. Bring your birth certificate and a recent photo. Info: Wally or Grasha Goodman, 599-7644.
SPORTS NOTES ■ Union County Youth Football and Cheer sign-ups will be held at Horace Maynard Middle School’s football field 10 a.m.-1 p.m. Saturday, June
Just restate the position once more and then stop responding to the attacks. Look for gradual changes in behavior. Don’t expect too much. Praise behavior that is coming closer to the desired goal. Remember that your behavior serves as a model for your children’s behavior. If one of you is disciplining a child and the other enters the room, that other person should not step in on the argument in progress. Reward desirable behavior as much as possible by verbal praise, touch or something tangible such as a toy, food or money. Both of you should have an equal share in the responsibility of discipline as much as possible. Please feel free to contact me with any specific parenting questions at 992-8038 or firstname.lastname@example.org.

Muncey signs with Hiwassee By Libby Morgan Landon Muncey had a big turnout to cheer his baseball scholarship signing to Hiwassee College in Madisonville. Coach Drew Richardson says, “Hiwassee is lucky to get Landon. He’s a great kid

Chiropractic and foot pain Chiropractic Outlook By Dr. Darrell Johnson, DC Our feet are the foundation on which everything else relies. They do a lot of work and deserve our attention and care. It’s estimated we take anywhere from 3,000 to 5,000 steps every day. The foot is a strong but intricate latticework of bones and tendons. It’s no wonder our feet develop aches and pains. Some common foot problems can be remedied with chiropractic treatment. Heel pain, for example, also known as plantar fasciitis, can be caused by an imbalance between the muscles of the calf and the tissue along the bottom of the foot, all of which connect to the heel bone (technically, the calcaneus). A chiropractor can determine the cause of the problem. Treatment might include something as simple as stretching and strengthening exercises.
Another relatively common foot ailment is the condition called flat feet. When we are born, our feet are flat. Most of us, between the ages of 3 and 10, develop an arch. That arch, though, depending on factors like weight and lifestyle, can flatten out over time. The condition can cause pain in the feet, knees, hips and lower back. A chiropractor can help ease those symptoms by adjusting your joints and improving foot function. He or she may also recommend an orthotic, which is a custom-made insert for your shoe, lending support to the arch. Talk with your chiropractor about treatment possibilities if you’re experiencing foot pain.
