We the People By Libby Morgan

In recognition of the 226th anniversary of the signing of the United States Constitution, Horace Maynard Middle School students participated in a Constitution Week event sponsored by U.S. Sen. Bob Corker. Lisa Salyers of Corker’s staff delivered an interactive presentation to the students, showing a 5-foot replica of the Constitution and discussing its importance in every American’s life. Corker sent a statement: “The wisdom our (Founders) showed in crafting such a fundamental and elegant document that has provided the foundation for our government and our country for 226 years is really incredible when you think about it. “I hope the students who attend our Constitution Week events across the state come away wanting to learn more about our country’s history, values and system of government. Our country faces a number of challenges in the coming decades, and it’s important that young Americans understand the document that has guided our country since its founding,” wrote Corker.

We the People of the United States, in Order to form a more perfect Union, establish Justice, insure domestic Tranquility, provide for the common defence, promote the general Welfare, and secure the Blessings of Liberty to ourselves and our Posterity, do ordain and establish this Constitution for the United States of America. (Preamble as written)

A large replica of the Constitution is presented to Horace Maynard Middle School by Jill Salyers (standing by the flag), field rep for U.S. Sen. Bob Corker. Joining her are HMMS History Club president Connor Long, VP Hailie Hensley and secretary Saylar Epperson; Dr. Jimmy Carter, Susan Oaks, principal Melanie Maples, Roger Flatford, Kristie Dean, Sharon Collins, Mayor Mike Williams; (back) Dave Burk, David Coppock and Anthony Malone.

Union County at Boy Scout Jamboree By Linda Myers, Scoutmaster, Troop 401 Five boy scouts and I were proud to represent Union County among the 40,000 youth and 5,000 staff members attending the 2013 National Jamboree held for the first time at the Summit Bechtel Reserve in West Virginia. The national event has taken place every four years at different locations, this marks the grand opening of “The Summit,” but is now the permanent location of the Jamboree as well as a new high adventure base for scouts. “The Boy Scouts of America thanks all of the scouts, volunteers, philanthropists and partners who helped make the grand opening of the Summit and the 2013 National Scout Jamboree a huge success,” said Wayne Brock, chief scout executive, Boy Scouts of America. “This site began as a vision that many people shared, and the last 10 days have demonstrated that West Virginia is the perfect place for our young people to take in the fun and adventure that are fundamental to the full scouting experience.” Throughout the 10-day event, scouts participated in adventures unlike anywhere else, including more than five miles of zip line challenge courses, 36 miles of mountain bike trails, and 13 acres of shooting sports, as well as kayaking, rockclimbing, bouldering, skateboarding, BMX and various other activities. Scouts also had the opportunity to earn a variety of merit badges from

surveying and disabilities awareness to the new sustainability badge that made its début at the Jamboree. They also made a trek to “The Cloud” where the latest technology is on display. Not to ignore the 100-plus years of Boy Scout history, Brownsea Island was recreated and re-enacted as the first scout camp. The stadium show entertained the scouting crowd with Eagle Scout Mike Rowe from the TV show “Dirty Jobs” and the band “Three Doors Down.” An impressive fireworks show was delayed due to weather, but followed the next evening. “A day of service” had scouts performing community service to the surrounding counties, with our crew improving a nearby cemetery. The memorial honors 764 workers who died during 1930-31 in what is considered America’s worst industrial accident. “Building the stairway was the difficult part,” said Dustin Letner, Life Scout. “Learning about the history of the hydroelectric plant and workers tunneling through silica that caused so many people to die of lung disease was sad,” added Jerry Myers, Eagle Scout. “Although it was hot, the finished job made a big improvement to the area” said Austin Hickman, Star Scout. Cody Faulkner and Johnny Myers, both Life Scouts, also said it was a rewarding service project. The five scouts from Troop 401 went as part of Troop C-438’s Possum Patrol, one of six units from the Great Smoky Mountain

Council of East Tennessee. I was happy to be a part of scouting on a national scale. I met scouts and leaders from all over the country and some internationally, but getting to visit my guys during the event was priceless. I served on the national staff working in the Trading Post. Participants camped out with friends, met new people, tried high-adventure activities, learned new skills, enjoyed the outdoors, and had fun in an atmosphere of Scouting fellowship. The positive impacts went beyond the borders of the Summit, as approximately 30,000 youth completed more than 250,000 hours of community service at 350 projects at sites in McDowell, Mercer, Monroe, Raleigh, Greenbrier, Summers, Nicholas, Wyoming and Fayette counties. Through activities such as clearing brush, performing repairs, cleaning litter, painting, planting, constructing walkways and shelters and pouring concrete, the total volunteer hours of these projects are estimated to be valued in the millions of dollars. Since the first jamboree was held in 1937, it has become known as the BSA’s most iconic event, allowing Scouts from all backgrounds, faiths, and cultures to have experiences and create memories to last throughout their lifetimes. Located on a sprawling 10,600 acres in West Virginia’s world-renowned adventure sports region known as the New River Gorge, the Summit is now the permanent home for the Boy Scouts of America’s national jamboree. The Summit will also host the 2019 World Scout Jamboree and begin offering an array of high-adventure base programs beginning in June 2014.

The canopy tour at the Summit gets the scouts up in the trees and is connected to a portion of a total of five miles of zip lines in the reserve.

In front of the Sustainability Treehouse are Alexander Peters (from Farragut), and Troop 401 members Austin Hickman, Jerry Myers, Dustin Letner and Johnny Myers. The treehouse is a multi-story structure with educational exhibits and is self powered, collects water, recycles waste and makes its own heat. Photos submitted

a long time – maybe ever. I was a staff member for the Jamboree, and I had to walk about 10 miles a day to get to my work place, to eat and get back to my bed. “But I loved every minute of it. I wish I could have been with my scouts more, but we were all going different directions. I hardly saw them. “Our scouts raised a lot of money for the trip, but we couldn’t have gone without the support of our community of friends.” Linda wants to thank the following for helping the scouts have the experience of a lifetime: American Legion Post 212, Tri-County Honor Guard, VFW of Maynardville, Sunset Bay Homeowners Association and individuals, A&B Bookkeeping, Ralf’s Automotive, Halls Service Center, Broadway Insurance, Greg Davis, Gail Davenport, Joe McDonald and friends, Bruce Miles family and Brenda Urso. Linda’s 27 years as a scout leader are testament to her tireless dedication to rounding out the boys’ education with adventure and real-life experiences. The troop will have a booth at the Heritage Festival in Maynardville, where visitors can meet the scouts of Troop 401 and their fearless leader. Linda invites others to join them. – Libby Morgan

Carter said for the people currently in these positions, the supplements he proposed would cost $122,000. If the school board wants to tinker with his schedule, someone will lose for everyone who wins. Unless, of course, the board wants to up the ante for supplements, taking the money from a different budget line. Oh, my, as our friend Marvin West might say.

UNION COUNTY Shopper news • SEPTEMBER 28, 2013 • 5

There’s a big game in town two John Majors passes to Buddy Cruze, down and out, then down and in, to the Tech 1. Tommy Bronson scored the touchdown in a 6-0 victory. Other highlights included Majors quick-kicking 68 yards and tackle Jim Smelcher finding a fumble when Tech was driving. There were other defining moments. Two years later, a Wyatt team lost to Chattanooga. Strange that a couple of ties would be big deals in Doug Dickey’s time at Tennessee. Knotting up at 3-3 with nationally-ranked LSU in Baton Rouge was the bright spot for his first team. That was 1964. Fighting defending national champion Alabama to a 7-7 tie in Birmingham

the next season was the liftoff to a strong finish. Snake Stabler contributed by throwing away the football to stop the clock – only to discover it was fourth down. There were several other definitive games in the Dickey era – the Rosebonnet win over UCLA, three in a row over the Tide, weeks and weeks in the top 10. Do not skip lightly over Dickey’s success. Alas and alas, there was no way for Bill Battle to shake off the kick-return loss to North Texas State, the fake punt against Georgia and missed extra points against Duke. I prefer to remember the rain game against Auburn, smart punts on first down, 21-0 Tennessee victory. Defining event for Majors

as coach was Jan. 1, 1986, Sugar Bowl, 35-7 romp over No. 2 Miami. I’m not sure the mighty Hurricane ever figured out what hit it. Phillip Fulmer had a defining season, 1998, overtime victory over Florida, miraculous comeback against Arkansas, national championship triumph over Florida State in the Fiesta Bowl. Derek Dooley had a defining game, the chaotic, last-gasp loss to LSU at Baton Rouge. Losing to a Kentucky team that had no quarterback was worse. If the current Vols put the bite on the Bulldogs, it will be the first few feet – or maybe a city block – on Butch Jones Boulevard.

Words of grace and wisdom

in the faith, the grace that makes us the person God envisioned at our creation. That is a process that takes the whole of the rest of our lives. That is the part of God’s grace that is left out of the quote. It is true that God doesn’t care who you were. It is very true that God cares who you are now. Most of all, however, God cares who you are going to become. And who God wants us to become is perhaps best described by C. S. Lewis: “Christ says ‘Give me All. I don’t want so much of your time and so much of your money and so much of your work: I want You. I have not come to torment your natural self, but to kill it. No half-measures are any good. I don’t want to cut off a branch here

and a branch there. I want to have the whole tree down….The moment you put yourself in My hands, that is what you are in for. Nothing less, or other, than that. You have free will, and if you choose, you can push Me away. But if you do not push Me away, understand that I am going to see this job through. Whatever suffering it may cost you in your earthly life, whatever inconceivable purification it may cost you after death, whatever it costs Me, ‘I will never rest, nor let you rest, until you are literally perfect – until my Father can say without reservation that He is well pleased with you, as He said He was well pleased with me. This I can do and will do. But I will not do anything less.’ ”

or bad, priceless gems or sore spots that never heal, unforgettable either way. Robert R. Neyland had a really good one on Oct. 20, 1928, Tennessee against Alabama in Tuscaloosa. The young coach had to be a salesman just to secure spot on the Tide schedule. Marvin aAlabama was big time. It West had been to the Rose Bowl.

Chance for a sizable upset. Could be a defining moment in the coaching career of Lyle Allen “Butch” Jones Jr.

Then the son said to him, “Father, I have sinned against heaven and before you; I am no longer worthy to be called your son.” But the father said to his slaves, “Quickly, bring out a robe – the best one – and put it on him; put a ring on his finger and sandals on his feet. And get the fatted calf and kill it, and let us eat and celebrate; for this son of mine was dead and is alive again; he was lost and is found!” (Luke 15: 21-24a NRSV) God doesn’t care who you were. God only cares who you are now. (“Cowboys and Aliens,” Scott Mitchell Rosenberg)

Wisdom comes to us through many avenues. Sometimes we learn through reading and studying the Bible. Sometimes we hear a life-changing sermon. Occasionally the

oracle speaks through the voice of a good and faithful friend. Perhaps once in a lifetime, one hears the voice of God. (That is a column for another day). It is not often, however,

far, far ahead. Alabama never got far, far ahead. Tennessee sophomore Gene McEver returned the opening kickoff 98 yards. The Vols won, 1513. The Tide was stunned. Many of us consider this the real beginning of Tennessee football. First defining game for coach Bowden Wyatt was Nov. 10, 1956, Tennessee against Georgia Tech in downtown Atlanta. The Yellow Jackets were ranked No. 2 in the country, the Vols No. 3. It was one of the most intense and exciting battles in Tennessee history, selected some time later as the second greatest game ever played. I can’t remember what was supposedly better. The outcome swung on

that God’s wisdom comes to us through a Western movie. “Cowboys and Aliens” is not my favorite Western. Not even close. But I was watching it one night with my husband, and when I heard the line quoted above, I grabbed a piece of paper and wrote it down: “God doesn’t care who you were; God only cares who you are now.” There it is, I thought:

God’s grace in one sentence. Except that there is one important part left out. John Wesley famously understood the grace of God in three distinct ways: prevenient grace, justifying grace and sanctifying grace. Wesley believed and preached that God’s prevenient grace was the grace that goes before (hence the prevenience of it). It is the grace that gets our attention. Justifying grace is the grace that sets us right with God, the grace that washes away our sins and makes us clean and whole. Sanctifying grace is the grace that “grows us up”

Keep Union Movin’ kickoff Walking program led by pros By Libby Morgan Ranger Sarah Nicley, state forester Steve Roark, YMCA health director Jennifer Massengill, and volunteers extraordinaire Beth Bergeron and Neva Kitts are all gearing up to make this year’s Union County walking program a success. On Saturday, Sept. 28, Keep Union Movin’ info will be given out at the Farmers Market in front of Union County High School and a walk is scheduled at nearby Wilson Park. The weekly walking program was inspired by Gov. Bill Haslam’s

“Healthier Tennessee” initiative. Everyone – whatever your ability level – is welcome – in fact, bring the whole family. Ranger Nicley will lead a walk at 10 a.m. Tuesday, Oct. 1, at Big Ridge State Park. And at 10 a.m. Friday, Oct. 11, Roark promises a level walk at Wilson Park with a plant and tree identification talk including information about the plants along the way. Nicley will lead another walk at Big Ridge on Oct. 14, with time to be determined, and hopes to have a regular schedule for walkers at the park. You may have noticed Ni-

cley’s been getting smaller lately. She’s been running, slowly at first, for the last three years. “I like to walk and hike, but I’ve learned to love running. It burns more calories,” she says. “I’ve been able to keep 30 pounds off. I walk and jog four or five days a week.” Nicley credits a global running community and free apps for her smartphone for keeping her accountable. She joined a Facebook page, “500 miles in 2013,” where friends challenge and encourage each other. “It’s all about breaking your own records, no mat-

Ask about walking

apps and the Couch to 5K program. Meet at the Visitor Center: 10 a.m. ■ Monday, Oct. 14: join Ranger Nicley for another Big Ridge hike. Time and hike to be determined. ■ Thursday, Oct. 17: join Becca Hughes, UT extension agent, for a stroller walk at the Plainview Park. 6 p.m. ■ Saturday, Oct. 19: join Martha Brown, Paulette Elementary School science teacher, for a walk around the school – flat, easy to walk, couple of miles. Meet at the entrance, 9 a.m.

■ Ghost House Hikes at Big Ridge State Park: reservations required (9925523). Every Friday and Saturday night in October. Meet at the gristmill.

If you are willing to lead a walk, let us know at 992-8038.

ter how slowly you progress. It’s the personal goals that matter. “Right now I’m working on mileage instead of pounds,” she says. “I got into it because I had gotten so out of shape, I didn’t feel I could be effective in an emergency situation on the job. It is scary getting started, but with all the free advice out there, easy ways to track your progress, nutrition information, gadgets and apps, I’ve been successful enough to plan on running a full marathon in the spring. “It’s not about how fast I run it. It’s about finishing the race. “And I’ve got the best place ever to walk and run,” she says, referring to her place of residence and work Big Ridge State Park Ranger – Big Ridge State Park.
