Shirley shares favorite recipes Shirley McMurtrie is at it again. She’s quilted coverlets for the homebound and nursing homes, made Christmas goodies for lots of people, cracked and canned gallons of walnuts and righted anything else she can get her hands on. This time it is a new cookbook featuring her country cooking – Michigan-style recipes, many of which she learned as a very young girl.

‘Who’s a dummy?’ Willie Siegle is a smart alec of the first order. Ceaselessly sassy with dense Groucho Marx eyebrows that shoot up to his auburn wig when he’s driving home a point, he’s so convincing you almost get to thinking he’s human.

UC cheerleaders place at competition By Cindy Taylor The Union County High School cheerleading squad won big at the UCA cheerleading competition, finishing first in Fightsong and Dance and second in Routine and Time Out Cheer. More than 20 high school teams competed for the honor of bringing home the trophies. Awards were presented to the squad at Union County’s basketball game against Austin-East on Dec. 4. Head coach Roxanne Patterson and assistant coach Haley Soeder have worked diligently
with the squad since May preparing for the competition. “The team has worked so hard for this,” said Patterson. “We are so very proud of them and what they have achieved. For cheer squads this competition is equal to a district tournament in basketball. These kids worked six months for their two and a half minutes of fame.” For seniors Tanner Moyers, Shea Bailey, Makayla Goins and Haley Brooks, this will be their last competition for Union County High School. While that may bring sadness, they are happy to be going out winners. “These are not only my fellow teammates but my friends,”
The UCHS cheer squad leads summer cheer camp earlier this year. said Moyers. “We have given our all this year, and Roxanne would have killed us if we lost.” “We had a lot to prove,” said Goins.
“We worked so, so, so hard,” said Brooks. “Through blood, sweat and tears we finally got there and were able to showcase our talent.”
to who was worthy of our support. Mildred told us where to get tender okra and fresh green beans and Scott strawberries. Carl went with us to purchase a John Deere Gator so we would get a professional discount. Mildred made great fudge. Carl could fix things. He unraveled more than a few tangles at our new house. Carl did most of the cutting of our first load of firewood. Together, the Coopers could answer all questions. We shared rides on pontoon boats for picnics and Fourth of July lakeside fireworks. We enjoyed many lunches together. We exchanged Christmas gifts and always seemed to receive more than we gave. Indeed, the Coopers were generous to a fault. We were pleasantly surprised when they accepted an invitation to visit our winter home in Mexico. Mildred was more curi-
ous, excited, adventurous. Carl looked everything over carefully and probably compared what he saw and tasted with Maynardville and Hardee’s or 33 Diner. No, no, the Coopers were not strangers to strange sights and sounds. They had seen a fair share of the world. Carl told us about military duty in England and elsewhere. Mildred had been an assortment of interesting places, including Alaska. She shared wonderful photos. The Coopers were a genuine joy in our lives. We were able to say a bedside goodbye to Mildred and got to add a few words at her funeral. Sadly, Carl didn’t know us when we saw him last. It is painful to lose good friends but, as you may have previously heard, it is much better to have had and lost than not to have had at all.

End of an era Remembering Carl Cooper By Marvin West Carl Cooper died the other day, ending a special era of our lives. Carl and Mildred Cooper came along at the exact right time for Sarah and me. We had just escaped Washington, D.C., and relocated to Union County, to a home we had built next door to the Coopers without even knowing their names. Carl walked across what passed for grass, extended simple greetings and brought a pineapple-up- Carl Cooper Photo submitted side-down cake. From that start, Mildred told us “who’s who” in the Coopers became our best friends. It was mostly their fault. the county. Carl showed us where We were total strangers. to vote and offered a few clues as

Coffee Break with
Jim Woods Since 2007 folks have been jammin’ with Jim Woods at his music store on Maynardville Highway. Woods says his mom, Virgie Woods, instilled in him a love of music. “Mom told me that music self-played is happiness self-made,” said Woods. Jim’s mother told him those words when he was 10. They have been his fondest memory. His favorite instrument is the guitar and you can often find him jamming in his store with fellow musicians. Woods plays like an old soul and is a naturalborn entertainer. He teaches music at the store and is also a minister, filling empty pulpits when needed. “The Lord has blessed us at Woods Music with kind people who walk through the door with smiles,” said Woods. Woods and his wife, Dianne, have been married for 45 years and have four children and seven grandchildren. He is known in the community as a man with a big heart who loves to help those in need. Sit and have a coffee break as you get to know Jim Woods:

What is the best advice your mother ever gave you? She told me about Jesus and music.
TIME OUT— TO SAY,
What’s one place in Union County everyone should visit? Woods Music. I’m a capitalist you know. Someday not being in my right mind

Food City donates to UC Food Pantry By Cindy Taylor The Maynardville Food City presented a check to the Union County Food Pantry Dec. 20 for $1,250. “I knew they were going to do this but I had no idea it would be this much,” said food pantry director Kitty Lewis. “This is substantial and we are thrilled. This will go a long way to put us back in shape so we can continue to serve the community.” Food City holds a Race Against Hunger drive each year and all money raised is donated to charity. “All the money raised
in our community stays in our community,” said Maynardville manager Scott Inklebarger. “And it all comes from our customers. We have a wonderful customer base. We do a lot of things with the pantry but this is the first time they have received a check.” The Union County Food Pantry served 280 families during its last distribution. The next distribution will be 2-5 p.m. Monday, Jan. 14. The pantry is staffed entirely by volunteers and is located at 553 Fall Creek Road.

Beautiful hearts help Claire By Cindy Taylor Santa’s helpers have been spotted all over town this Christmas season. One in particular caught the eye of Rouxbarb restaurant owner Chef Bruce Bogartz. So much so that he added a special fundraiser to his customer appreciation event Dec. 17. “When time and money permit, I like to do something for my customers to say thank you,” said Bogartz. “I find that when I am generous to my patrons they are generous as well. I read about Claire in the paper and it seemed like good timing.” Claire is Claire Cox, the granddaughter of Charles Pittman. Pittman has been making special appearances as Santa to raise money for Claire’s medical expenses. Claire suffered a stroke before birth due to a blood clotting disorder, resulting in the inability to use the right side of her body. The stroke affected mostly her right arm and fine motor control of her right hand. Claire lacks balance, has a weak right leg that requires a brace and is at great risk for seizures. Claire is one of a few patients who were accepted into the AQUIREc Program; a world-renowned therapy program at the University of Alabama, Birmingham. This therapy has already helped Claire advance in walking, the use of her arm and daily living skills. Claire needs to attend this program five times (once per year) before she is five years old. Her fourth session will be in May 2013. Each session costs $15,000 and is not covered by Claire’s health insurance. “Claire is walking much better now thanks to injec-
tions,” said grandmother Kathy Pittman. “They said she would never be able to jump and she is jumping everywhere with her two-yearold sister Amy.” The Shopper-News ran an article on Charles Pittman back in November and word traveled fast. Other news media have kept the ball rolling, keeping Pittman busy with engagements. Bogartz has been cooking since he was 17 and has been in the current location at Rouxbarb Restaurant for six years. He says it has been remarkable how the community has picked up on Claire’s need and made donations of food and beverages to help with the evening. Even customers who were invited but could not make it to the event have sent money. Bogartz’ mom Barbara, who is a baker, came from Atlanta with husband Rich Mindel to bring home baked goodies. More than 150 people attended the event, raising more than $2,000 for Claire. Big John and the Nation-
Chef Bruce Bogartz shares a moment with Kathy Pittman. als performed live music, and food and beverages were freely offered. Claire was accompanied to the event by mom Michelle and sister Amy. The family has been overwhelmed at the outpouring of support. “Bruce is a great guy of the Jewish faith who stepped up to help a little girl at Christmas,” said Pittman. “Even with all the bad in
the world, it reminds you that there is still good,” said Bogartz. Barbara Bogartz summed it up nicely. “My 12-year-old granddaughter, Sara Beth, Bruce’s daughter, said to me, “My daddy has a beautiful heart.” And so do the many others who have come through this Christmas for this special little girl.

Chiropractic Outlook By Dr. Darrell Johnson, DC Chiropractors are committed to conservative – meaning non-surgical – treatment of their patients. Chiropractors also do not prescribe drugs. They have more training and experience in spinal manipulation than any other healthcare provider. Correcting subluxations, misalignments in the vertebrae, the bones of the spine, is the chiropractor’s specialty. But many chiropractors have training in other complementary, conservative types of treatment. A chiropractor gets this training in the course of regular chiropractic education, during post-graduate studies or in a residency program. Your chiropractor, for instance, might recommend a program of home exercise or stretching to address a particular problem. He may recommend massage therapy, or ergonomic changes at your workplace or home. Ergonomics is the study of how people interact with their home or work environments. Something as simple as adjusting the angle of a chair, keyboard or computer screen could be the answer to a nagging pain. Your chiropractor might recommend nutritional changes as a way to address a problem. And your chiropractor won’t hesitate to refer you to another healthcare professional if that’s the best course.

‘Who’s a dummy?’ Noted d ventri ventriloquist iloquiist to visit Powellll Pl Playhouse i it P h By Betty Bean Willie Siegle is a smart alec of the first order. Ceaselessly sassy with dense Groucho Marx eyebrows that shoot up to his auburn wig when he’s driving home a point, he’s so convincing you almost get to thinking he’s human. And that’s all Wade Johnson’s fault. He and Willie have been together since 1973, and Johnson knows how to push his buttons. Johnson, an author, management consultant and retired professor of industrial psychology, is an adjunct professor at Roane State Community College and Tennessee Tech. He has been a ventriloquist since 1955, when, at the age of 12, he decapitated his sister’s doll in an attempt to turn it into a dummy. “I’d gotten Paul Winchell’s book – ‘Ventriloquism for Fun and Profit,’ and I decided I needed a dummy. My sister Linda had a Chatty Cathy doll, and I cut into its jaw so its mouth would move, and cut its head off … any money I made for the next 6 months went to my sister to buy her a new Chatty Cathy,” he said. Willie Siegle, underwhelmed by the ancient history, sits on Johnson’s knee and rolls his eyes. Johnson will bring Siegle to Powell Playhouse in the Jubilee Banquet Facility on “Comedy Night, Rhythm and Laughter” at 7:30 p.m. Saturday, Jan. 19 (snow date, Jan. 26). They will be joined by Powell business owner/bluegrass musician David Douglas and Wade’s son, magician Lance Johnson. His granddaughter Carly Johnson (an honor student at the L&N STEM Academy) volunteers at the playhouse, and his son, Mark, is a family practice physician in Powell. Wade and Lance Johnson come by their performing genes naturally. Both Wade’s father and grandfather were well-known magicians when he was growing up in Baltimore.
David Douglas, Willie Siegle and Wade Johnson will headline Powell Playhouse Comedy Night Jan. 19. Photo by Betty Bean In 1955, his dad bought him a real dummy – Maher Studio’s model Johnny 100 for Christmas – and Willie Siegle was born. Two decades later, Maher went to a different style and Johnson replaced the Johnny 100 with the current Willie. He joined Paramount Variety Productions that same year and performed in stage shows, country clubs, nursing homes, hospitals and other venues where an underage ventriloquist could legally take the stage. Later, he won the American Society of Professional Ventriloquists “Best Professional Ventriloquist” award for 3 consecutive years and authored a how-to book, “Anybody can be a Ventriloquist – Including You.” From 1972-1976, Johnson worked for Little Debbie Snack
Cakes doing TV appearances, conventions and store openings in a 26-state territory. He’d load Willie up in a shopping cart full of Little Debbie cakes and entertain customers with his antics. “During this time I made it my business to visit a children’s hospital in each city I visited. It took me four days to get through St. Jude’s in Memphis. The worst wards were burn and cancer wards,” he said. He particularly remembers one little girl who was gravely ill and needed a risky surgical procedure, which she was refusing. Without it, her chances weren’t good. But when Willie Siegle came to see her, she was smitten. She asked Johnson how long it would take to get a dummy of her own. “I said two weeks,” Johnson said.

Shirley is a transplant, not born in Union County, and we like her. I met her many years ago at ChocolateFest, a Valentine’s Day celebration and fundraiser at the Masonic lodge in Maynardville. Shirley had brought lots of chocolate candy. Was it ever good! Shirley grew up on a farm in northern Michigan where her dad worked as a tenant farmer. Shirley’s mother was born in Hungary and was not accustomed to American-style cooking. Shirley says she’s loved to cook since she was probably
6 or 7 and pitched in to help her mom at a very early age. Now in her eighties, Shirley had long had a goal to publish her recipes. That goal was recently accomplished with her cookbook called “Shirley’s Favorite Recipes 1936-2012.” Most of the recipes are Shirley’s own, but she has included a few special ones she collected from friends and family. Some of her dishes have very interesting titles, such as “Goat Sausage,” “Long Johns” and “Scorched Gravy.” Northern Michigan is the home of what we know as “Great Northern Beans” and many other varieties of beans. The cookbook is sprinkled with many good bean dish recipes. There are also lots of Shirley’s recipes that are so popular today. A member of Revival Vision Church of God on Durham Drive in Maynard-
“When I got back to Chattanooga on Friday, my boss called and asked ‘Did you go visit a little girl in the hospital?’ I said ‘Yes, why do you ask?’ and he said ‘Because of your visit, she came through the surgery just fine.’” Earlier this year, after attending a Powell Playhouse production, he decided it was time to haul Willie out again. He called producer/director/founder Nita Buell Black to volunteer his services. She was thrilled to accept his offer. “Wade and Lance Johnson have a family history in the entertainment business since their father and grandfather led the way. “I believe Powell Playhouse is offering the communities around us a show they will certainly enjoy!
ville, Shirley prepares the Wednesday evening suppers. The congregants obviously like her cooking. She says the crowd is holding and growing. In addition to achieving a goal, Shirley is supporting the church’s mission by donating the proceeds from the sale of the cookbook to the church’s building fund. Shirley as well as her daughter, Anne, have homes near Hickory Star. The cookbooks sell for $10 and can be purchased at Okie’s Pharmacy in Maynardville or by calling Shirley at 9921624. Here are a couple of easy favorites from the cookbook: Sweet Tea 1 qt. water 1 or 2 family size black tea bags 1 cup granulated sugar 1 qt. cold water
In a medium saucepan over high heat, bring 1 quart of water to a boil. Add family-size black tea bag(s) and cover. Steep 5 minutes. Re-
move tea bags and discard. Add 1 cup sugar. Stir until dissolved. Add 1 quart cold water. Cool to room temperature. Add desired amount of ice cubes to two-quart pitcher. Add prepared tea and serve. Note: 6 to 9 regular size tea bags can be used instead of family-size ones. This recipe came from Shirley’s friend, Opal Maples. Flaky Double Crust Pastry 3 cups all purpose flour

Vols once played in bowl games So you don’t forget what it was like when Tennessee played in big bowl games, here are a few reminders: ■ 1939 Orange Bowl or Brawl, maybe the toughest holiday game ever played, sneak uppercuts and roundhouse rights, a broken nose for blocking back Sam Bartholomew, 220 yards in penalties. Sub center Joe Little, dispatched as a peacemaker, lasted 30 seconds. He took a blow to the face, retaliated and was promptly ejected. The Volunteers, No. 2 in the country, clobbered Oklahoma, 17-0, and stopped a 14-game winning streak.
The legendary George Cafego set the tone on the first play, knocking all-American end Waddy Young upside down with a vicious block. Bob Foxx and Babe Wood scored touchdowns for Tennessee. Bowden Wyatt kicked a field goal. Bob Suffridge led a defense that limited Oklahoma to 25 rushing yards.
Only the beginning “For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future Then you will call upon me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to you . You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all your heart. I will be found by you.” (Jeremiah 29:11 NIV) The world is round and the place which may seem like the end may also be only the beginning. (Ivy Baker Priest) The calendar is round, just like the world, and when December ends, another January begins. Apparently everyone who believed the world would end on Dec. 21 was mistaken. Surprise! So, here we are, at the end of a year. I hope it has been a year of discovery for you. I hope you have learned something important. I hope you have remembered something wonderful, someone wonderful. I hope you have grown, softened, improved, mellowed (or
sharpened, as need be) into a better person than you were at this time last year. I hope you have made a new friend, reached out to an old friend, forgiven a wrong, set to rights a mistake, sung a new song. I hope you have plans, goals, dreams. I hope you decide there is some place in the world you want to see and get busy to make that happen. I hope you have been faithful to your promises. I hope you have promises yet to keep.
■ 1951 Cotton Bowl, Tennessee 20, Texas 14 on two fourth-quarter touchdowns by Andy Kozar. Highlight was a 75-yard run by tailback Hank Lauricella to set up the opening TD, a Herky Payne pass to John Gruble. Texas blocked a punt and took a 14-7 lead into intermission but the Vols were better later. Pat Shires missed the tying extra point after Kozar’s first score and Robert R. Neyland responded with this famous bit of philosophy: “Don’t worry about it, Pat, we didn’t come here to tie.” Many Vols were listening. A Lauricella pass and Lauri-
I hope you can find joy in a sunrise, in a view of the mountains, in the surprise of rain falling on your face. I hope you have music in your life: country or classical, jazz or folk, your choice. I hope you can spend time regularly with a child, a puppy, a foal, some fragile young thing still learning about this world, because in so doing, you too will learn about yourself and the world. I hope you can finish at least one thing today. This day at the end of the year is a day of completion, a day of finality. Let something go: some resentment, some sorrow, some fear. Let it go, give it up and set it free. I hope you will start something tomorrow,
cella run led to the winning touchdown. Shires kicked the 20th point. ■ 1971 Sugar Bowl, Tennessee 34, Air Force 13. Famous officers, medals and ribbons attracted almost all the attention leading up to kickoff. What happened after that was awesome. The Vols scored on their first four possessions. It was 24-0 with 3:21 remaining in the first quarter. Don McLeary had two touchdowns. Bobby Scott riddled the Falcons with passes. Joe Thompson caught nine for 125 yards. Tim Priest, Ray Nettles and Jamie Rotella led the defense that left the losers with minus-12 yards rushing. The Vols picked four passes and recovered four fumbles. It was a rout. ■ 1986 Sugar Bowl, a
great day in New Orleans, Tennessee 35, mighty Miami 7. Ken Donahue’s defensive scheme was overwhelming. The Vols got three Vinny Testaverde passes. Daryl Dickey seized the spotlight. Jeff Powell had a 60-yard run. Tim McGee found a fumble in the end zone. Sweet, sweet victory, party time on Bourbon Street! ■ 1999 Fiesta Bowl, Tennessee 23, Florida State 16, the one that really mattered, national championship, glorious conclusion to a 13-0 season. Tee Martin completed 11 of 18 for 278 yards. Peerless Price caught four for an amazing 199. Dwayne Goodrich returned an interception 54 for a touchdown. If you close your eyes, you might still see Phillip Fulmer
holding the trophy, the crystal football, high above his head. ■ Tennessee, 25 victories, 24 losses, is tied for third with Nebraska in total bowl appearances, behind Alabama and Texas, ahead of Southern Cal, Georgia, Oklahoma, Penn State, Ohio State, LSU and Michigan. All bowl talk is not ancient history. And the little ones count. Citrus Bowl wins over Big 10 teams were happy times. The 2005 Cotton Bowl romp over Texas A&M was a treasure. The 2008 Outback win over Wisconsin is more important than I thought at the time. Keep the faith. There will probably be another someday.
whether it is cleaning out a closet or planting a flower or picking up the book you got for Christmas and settling down for a good read. I hope you will seek something today: love, truth, hope, meaning.
I hope you will give something today: love, truth, hope, meaning. I hope you will ask for something today: for understanding, for perspective, for joy, for contact, for remembrance, for peace, for grace.
And last, but not at all least, I hope you will discover something today: some new insight, a new friend, an old friend, a firm footing, a new strength, a new determination, a new love.

Resolving in 2013 By Cindy Taylor It is hard to believe another year looms on the horizon. Each year the Shopper-News asks a few folks in Union County for their New Year’s resolutions. Here are a few resolutions for 2013:
105 Monroe Street, Maynardville, Tennessee On the Courthouse Square Hours: M-F 8:30 a.m. to 5:00 p.m.
Union County Man and Woman of the year for 2012, Brandi and Brad Davis with son Jackson Brantley, 13 (left), and the newest addition to the family, 8-week-old Brinkley
Other hours by appointment
Our resolution is a joint one. I read a passage in the book, “52 Things Kids need from a Mom” by Angela Thomas that has resonated with me ever since. The house that you are building is where you are going to live. Brad and I are going to focus on “building our home.” This means that we will be focusing on our family and the things that really matter to us. We want to continue to work hard at building a strong, stable and good life for us and our family in the New Year. – Brandi and Brad Davis
Happy New Year!
I want to be a better Christian, father, husband and leader in the community. If I could have one goal, that would be it. But that should be everyone’s heart; to be a better servant to all people and better role models to kids. – Phillip King

I have learned that a life fi lled with consistency is better than all the resolutions I could make. There are many things I could do less or more of that would be an improvement to this flawed individual, but I would rather be more consistent. To be more consistent in showing my love for Him who loved me first; more consistent in loving others the way Christ loves. In sharing the good news of Jesus Christ with those that need to hear some good news in a troubled world. More consistent in His will rather than my own. So, if I had a resolution it would be to be more like Him. Life is precious and I give the Lord Jesus thanks for consistently blessing me. God bless and Happy New Year! – Mike Viles, Associational Missionary for Midland and Northern Association of Baptists
