Hinds Creek life On Nov. 13, 1794, when Peter Graves was scalped by Indians near Sharps Fort, much fear settled over the area that there might be more attacks. Peter thought he had heard a wild turkey gobbling and went out to hunt the turkey. Instead, an Indian shot him in the back of the head at such close range his head was powder burned. Peter Graves was subsequently scalped and his body mutilated.

Heartfelt gratitude From UCHS students to our veterans By Libby Morgan “I’ve had a Christmas dinner of cold hamburgers and fries with cold hot wings on the side in the mud. I met Chuck Norris and Toby Keith. I’ve helped find and disarm over 350 IEDs,” tells retired Army Sgt. William Satterfield. The Union County High School 2002 graduate, as guest speaker at the school’s Veterans Day program, told a quiet audience of several hundred in the auditorium a little about his experiences in Iraq and Afghanistan. A stage full of students, veterans and flags was backed up by

Tri-County Veterans Honor Guard Members of the Tri-County Veterans Honor Guard were in full attendance at the program. Former Union County Sheriff Earl Loy Sr. tells about the group: “We formed nine years ago. It’s an honor for us to give our deceased comrades a fitting farewell. “We volunteer at funeral services and do 50 to 70 burials a year in Grainger, Claiborne and Union counties.

“We got our original startup money from the county governments, but it’s expensive to do what we do. The full uniforms cost about $500 each, then there are transportation costs and other expenses. “We’d like to get a small bus or a van since it takes five cars to get all of us to a destination. Those three counties cover a lot of ground. “And we encourage new members.” To page 3

the school’s band and chorus and faced a front row of members of the Tri-County Honor Guard in full dress uniform. Behind the honor guard were a hundred or so veterans, all being honored by an hour-and-a-halflong program created by the students. The entire student body and members of the public filled the venue to near capacity. Poems, music and videos created a touching tribute, totally professional in its presentation. Afterwards, the veterans were treated to lunch at the J. C. Baker Lodge. Everyone who was a part of the UCHS Veterans Day program should be saluted.

Remote Area Medical and its founder Stan Brock are known worldwide for bringing medical aid to individuals far removed from it, logistically, financially or both. Brock, familiar to TV audiences for his work on “Wild Kingdom,” says he was inspired to found RAM in 1985, after being injured by wild horses as a teen in Guyana, South America. “The nearest doctor was 26 days away by foot,” he says. A new documentary film on the Knoxville-based nonprofit premieres 7 p.m. Thursday, Nov. 21, at the Tennessee Theatre. Admission to the screening is free. “We had nothing to do with (the film),” Brock says. “It’s shot from the patient’s point of view and is very tastefully done. “You get to see what people

like Chris do,” he says, pointing to medical director Dr. Chris Sawyer. “There’s nothing political about it. It’s about poverty in America, particularly in rural Appalachia.” The documentary was filmed at a RAM event at Bristol Motor Speedway two years ago. “People line up for 10 or 20 hours to get a ticket (to be seen by a doctor). People are camped out in the parking lot, sleeping in cars. It’s grim. And whether we’re in Los Angeles or Wise County, Va., or Knoxville, it’s the same. We hear the same complaints.” Sawyer, a prominent Knoxville physician, says the most important thing RAM does is provide optical and dental care. “People who have lived with a sore tooth for a year or two and it’s throbbing. Most (dentists) want money up front, so most of these people wait for a RAM event. They’ll drive for hours just to get a

tooth pulled.” Sawyer became involved with RAM in the aftermath of Hurricane Katrina in 2005. “I had been on missions in the Amazon six times, to Chile, to Brazil and after Katrina, my wife (Betty) said, ‘What are you going to do? You go and help all these people and you can’t help your own?’ In about five seconds, I knew who to call,” he said, pointing to Brock. Brock says the film is produced and directed by Jeff Reichert and his wife, Farihah Zaman. It has been wellreceived by audiences at various film festivals and is getting

Patriots ready for hoops season By Libby Morgan Roger Murphy, girls basketball coach at Union County High, says he is excited for the opportunity to improve upon last year’s 1317 record. “We’ve got several good players that are freshmen, including Briley Buckner and Sabrina Boggs. We’re looking at sophomore Madison Brantley to continue to be a leading scorer and rebounder. ShayLynne Flatford, a senior, was all-district last year and I expect good things from her on the court. “LaKaya Corum will be back mid-season from a broken leg. She’s our defensive stopper and team motivator.” The Patriot girls played their first games at home on Nov. 14 and 15 against Maryville Christian and the Knoxville Ambassadors (score unavailable at press time). Shane Brown, athletic director and boys basketball coach, gives us his take on this season: “The team is coming off a successful 2012-2013 season. We finished 17-12 and were fourth place in the tough District 3AA. “The Patriots return two starters from last year’s team and a few other kids that played some varsity minutes. “We are going to be inexperienced in a few positions as far as varsity playing experience, for sure. The biggest difference from this team as compared to last year’s team is toughness. The three seniors that we lost (Tony Strevel,

Tayte Kitts and Seth Norris) were very tough kids. We as coaches are stressing the importance of toughness on a daily basis,” said Brown. Returning Patriots got valuable experience in June that included wins over Farragut, Austin-East, Knox Central, Campbell County and Seymour. Union County opens the regular season on Monday, Nov. 18, versus Gibbs at UCHS. “Gibbs is always a big game for our kids and fans. The rivalry is always there even though Gibbs moved from the District. We expect a big crowd and hopefully we play well and put ourselves in a position to win late in the game. I know coach (Tim) Meade will have his kids ready to play and we have to match their intensity,” Brown said. “Senior Landon Muncey will be our starting center. We are looking for a big year from Landon. He has been a good leader thus far in practice and he always gives us 100 percent. “Juniors Brady Nease and Drew Fugate, along with sophomores Luke Shoffner and Austin York will compete for playing time at the guard positions. This group will make a big difference in the type of season we have. “Brady has a lot of skills and tools and he has worked hard on his game over the past summer. Brady needs to have a big year for us. “Drew, Luke and Austin will need to play to their strengths to contribute to this team. Drew has two years experience handling the pressure of this league and has handled it well to

ability to shoot the ball so well from beyond the three point line. “Jordan has improved a lot since his first year with us.

The author and Collins spoke in more detail, and all agreed the chance meeting was a sign from above. Collins is hopeful the book will provide ongoing funding for the center. The center depends solely upon grants and dona-

tions, and grants come with restrictions. “The donation from Carmeuse is going to help us a lot,” said Collins. “See that tiny TV?” She points to a 13-inch screen. “We plan to get a bigger one, and I’ll be checking out video game systems, and we’ve never even had a DVD player here.

Academy Award attention. A special Red Carpet event will be also held at 5:30 p.m. The Tennessee Wind Symphony – a group of 80, which includes Sawyer – will perform at 6:15. “I hope that the film will get the attention of a large segment of the American public who are not fully aware of the depth of poverty in the United States,” Brock says. He says that internal studies show that 65-70 percent of patients attending

a RAM medical event are there to see a dentist, followed closely by those who need to see an eye doctor. “And all of these people really need to see Chris. We try to persuade them to go see Dr. Chris and other physicians in the meantime while they are there and waiting for hours to see a dentist. Sometimes they discover they have serious, life-threatening problems.” Brock says the key to the organization’s success is volunteers like Sawyer.

“The money we do raise goes to the logistical end, putting fuel in the trucks and airplanes, buying dental chairs and having the vision setups. There’s a huge expense involved in running the organization.” Sawyer says volunteers know this upfront. “Everybody wants to go on missions until you bring up money. At RAM, you come in with an understanding that it’s up to you to get there. And it’s not for everybody, either. Some can

turn out to be rough.” Sawyer views his involvement with RAM as a calling. “Why was I blessed to be born here? I have no clue, but I think you need to give it back. It’s a humbling experience. I feel like I have to go. “And don’t let Stan minimize his role. He gave up everything to devote his life to this.” For more info on RAM and the film premiere event, visit or call 579-1530.

We’d like for the child to avoid the courtroom, but it is sometimes necessary for the prosecution. “So we try to prepare the child for the courtroom confrontation. It’s often extremely difficult for a child to face their abuser.” The center is decorated with sea-themed murals by Union County artist Aurora Harrison-Bull. Various organizations give the center helpful items. Girl Scouts recently stocked the center with backpacks filled with school supplies. Handmade quilts are hung on the walls. Comfortable furniture is throughout. “Once we identify a victim, we stay in that child’s life, giving ongoing support and therapy for the remainder of their childhood,” says Collins. “And we give therapy for the whole family.”

Early life on Hinds Creek On Nov. 13, 1794, when Peter Graves was scalped by Indians near Sharps Fort, much fear settled over the area that there might be more attacks. Peter thought he had heard a wild turkey gobbling and went out to hunt the turkey. Instead, an Indian shot him in the back of the head at such close range his head was powder burned. Peter Graves was subsequently scalped and his body mutilated. After several days, a group from Sharps Fort crossed the Clinch and the Powell Rivers to go to the saltpeter cave for niter for gun powder. The account of these activities lists Nicholas Gibbs, Henry Sharp, Coonrod Sharp and Levi Hinds as he only men left

at Sharps Station at that time. About 20 children, 20 women and girls and several boys remained. “Land of the Lake” by Dr. George L. Ridenour gives this first mention of Levi Hinds’ presence in what is now Union County. “French Broad Holston Country” by Mary U. Rothrock gives the account of killings at Mr. Wells place [Wells Station]. Wells Station was established about 1791 on Hinds Creek near the old Hinds Creek bridge on old

Loyston Road. Two of the Wells children were killed there by Indians in 1792. According to W. H. “Will” Thomas, a former superintendent of Union County Schools, Hinds Ridge and Hinds Creek were named for Levi Hinds, who helped establish Sharps Fort before moving to Hinds Valley. Hinds Ridge peaks at 1,750 feet and is the parent ridge of Chestnut Ridge and Pine Ridge, also in Union County. Hinds Creek runs down Hinds Valley from Warwicktown across Norris Freeway and into Anderson County. The late Marshall Wilson identified the John Perrington Warwick spring as being the “Head of Hinds

Creek.” The Union County map also shows it beginning in that vicinity. This community was the scene of the notorious murders of Henry and Serena Snoderly. John Stanley and Clarence Cox were convicted of these murders and hung at Maynardville, the only hanging in Union County history. Henry and Serena Snoderly are buried in Snoderly/Snodderly Cemetery behind Snodderly Baptist Church. The Hinds Creek Primitive Baptist Church dates back to 1806, and there is a handwritten, mostly legible, church record from that time. Family names synonymous with Hinds Creek Community are Coppock, Hutchinson, Lett, Loy, Smith, Snoderly/Snodderly, Turner, White and others.

Pointed observations about sagging Vols Primary observation after 83.3 percent of the Tennessee football season: I miscalculated. This restoration project is going to take longer than I thought.

Marvin West ■ The August outlook did not have Vanderbilt as the pivotal game of the season. I did not expect Michael Palardy to be player of the year. Several old Vols who saw entire practices warned me about offensive limitations and the lack of speed at linebacker. Hard to teach fleetness afoot, they said. With infinite wisdom, I foresaw steady improvement on defense, crisp tackling, clearly defined assignments, smart organization. The defense just had to get better. The departure of Sal Sunseri was the winning edge. My bad. The defense is not better. By historical standards, it is embarrassing. ■ I thought Tennessee would lose decisively at Oregon. I had no idea the

Ducks would score 59 and rack up 687 yards and roar up and down the field on eight consecutive drives. I believed Tennessee would upset somebody in the mid-section of the season – Florida, Georgia or South Carolina. Florida wasn’t very good. God saved Georgia. The Vols were fast enough to get the Gamecocks. Amazing. Of course Tennessee would lose at Alabama. I did not expect a rout. It was 35-0 at halftime. Tennessee fans could go. Nick Saban made UA students stay. Butch Jones said: “That was probably the worst half we’ve played all year. Some of it was due to the quality of our opponent. Some of it was self-inflicted wounds.’’ The “easy does it” Tide with bleach started me wondering if Tennessee was making any genuine progress. The team was ruining all those catchy slogans about superb conditioning, brotherhood devotion and brick-by-brick building. The collapse is confusing. Missouri was no contest. Auburn took all the fun out of homecoming. Fifty-five points! Oh my. ■ Regarding confusion, Tennessee did toughness drills the week between Missouri and Auburn. Did

you notice a difference? Rajion Neal ran hard. The offensive line, impressive in warm-ups, promoted as the finest in the SEC, has been exposed as something less. It may not be the best in the state. We’ll see Saturday. ■ These Volunteers have created the possibility of eight losses. That would be a record. In 116 years of UT football, no team has ever lost eight. One more setback will mean a fourth consecutive losing season. That hasn’t happened since 1903-06. No matter how they finish, they have made memories. As of now, seniors can reflect on 6-24 against SEC competition. During Tiny Richardson and A.J. Johnson’s time, the record is 3-19. ■ Some of you were not paying attention a few weeks ago when I offered a preview of Maty Mauk, Missouri’s mobile quarterback. Some didn’t see what the big deal was (your very words). Three of you misspelled his first and last name. I don’t know what you thought about that 31-3 romp but I thought Mauk killed Tennessee dead. The Vols used that experience to make Auburn’s

Nick Marshall appear much better. He ran 13 times for 214 yards and two touchdowns. One run was 62. He was unmolested on a 38yard sprint. Only the stadium wall stopped him short of the river. What shall we do about this quirky little problem of running quarterbacks? I am reminded of 2009 when Ole Miss deployed scatback Dexter McCluster in the wildcat formation. He ripped the Vols for 282 yards. Monte Kiffin, posing as Tennessee defensive coordinator, had no idea how to stop it. He had never seen such foolishness in the NFL. The following Monday, Kiffin called college coaches across the country for suggestions. I hope Tennessee’s current coaches are calling somebody for help. While they are at it, they might seek kick-coverage concepts. ■ This is double stakes Saturday, winner take all for Vanderbilt. Commodores coach James Franklin, considered unbearable by some Tennessee fans, would probably parlay a victory into serious gloating about state supremacy. He’s the sort who might even use it in recruiting. Marvin West invites reader reaction. His address is

Live and on the air again! Pull up a chair and listen to your ol’ buddy a minute. If you weren’t at the East Tennessee History Center on Nov. 1, you missed a heck of a historic show.

MY TWO CENTS Kathy Hill and Jim Clayton, reunited since Hill was the featured singer on Clayton’s popular “Startime” TV show, sang together with the original Kountry Kings. Hill sang like a star. Clayton struggled through Eddy Arnold’s yodel “Cattle Call” and cracked, “If it’s painful to you, imagine how it is for me!” David West told tales of the Ol’ Coonhunter, Cas Walker, and led the crowd in the infectious theme song to Walker’s “Farm and Home Hour.” Jim Hartsook, known to longtime Knoxville TV viewers as Little Jimmy Hartsook, didn’t look as if he’d aged at all. In the audience were local TV celebrities Bonnie Lou Moore (of “Bonnie Lou and Buster” fame), Ronnie Speeks, Carl Williams and Marshal Andy Smalls. Hartsook thanked Moore for giving him exposure, adding that an RCA executive took notice of him at a Bonnie Lou and Buster show in Pigeon Forge and signed Hartsook to a recording contract.

6 â&#x20AC;˘ NOVEMBER 16, 2013 â&#x20AC;˘ UNION COUNTY Shopper news Volunteer 4-H leader Beth Bergeron, in back, helps the Paulette Elementary 4-H kids learn about the parts of a tree by directing them to act out the strength and flow inside a tree trunk. The students are: (back) Makenzie Stewart, Trinity Aslinger, John Perry; (front) Mallory Moore, Joshua Perry, Aidan England and Austin Beeler.

Being a tree By Libby Morgan Fourth and fifth graders at Paulette Elementary, as members of the 4-H group there, are learning about what they see outdoors. On a recent day, 4-H leader Beth Bergeron, along with Paulette STEM teacher Martha Brown, took the group to Pauletteâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s big backyard to talk about trees. Along the way, the kids pointed out nests of fire ants and knew they are rare here. They identified several types of trees, including evergreens, the tall and straight poplar, and the sycamore with the peeling, multi-colored bark. The group is active in composting and recycling. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We compost anything that is vegetable matter, but never meat,â&#x20AC;? says compost expert Aiden England, as

she shows off the compost pile. Beside the school are neatly built raised garden beds, filled with fallen leaves. Down by the creek behind the school is a small wetland, where the group talks about why we need wetlands. The group will soon mark trails through an overgrown pasture next to the wetland. Bergeron asks, â&#x20AC;&#x153;And why do we not throw things into the creek?â&#x20AC;? with a chorus of answers including, â&#x20AC;&#x153;Because it doesnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t belong there!â&#x20AC;? and â&#x20AC;&#x153;It might hurt something down there!â&#x20AC;? Bergeron works most days as a volunteer with area 4-H groups, encouraging them to be knowledgeable of the natural world around them.

Below, John Perry sits in his special spot where he writes in his 4-H journal. The grounds of Paulette contain an old pasture and wetlands, bordered by a small creek, where study and appreciation of the natural world happens every Monday after school. Photos by Libby Morgan

bee around the commons, can also tax the body. Carrying a heavy backpack, especially if it’s slung over one shoulder, has long been identified by the American Chiropractic Association as a danger to spinal alignment. Toss into the mix a college student’s sleeping habits, which are not always conducive to long-range health. Sleeping curled up in a chair at the end of an all-night study session is not the best way to take care of one’s back. Sleeping on one’s back, rather than on the stomach or side, is the best way to take pres-

Chiropractic is for college kids Chiropractic treatment is not solely for older adults with back problems. It’s beneficial to people of all ages, even college kids who, at first glance, appear to be active and robust. Certain aspects of the college lifestyle can contribute to problems with the back and other joints down the road. For instance, long hours spent hunched over a laptop or over a book in the library can strain muscles and bone alignment throughout the body.
