Reform elder law now By Shannon Carey All my fellow Gen X’ers, Millennials and younger, give me your attention. You guys, we are so not ready for the Silver Tsunami. If you’ve not heard, that’s the going name for the tidal wave of elderly Andrea Kline folks needing care that’s expected as the Baby Boomers – our parents and grandparents – age. I heard Assistant District Attorney Andrea Kline speak about elder abuse last week, and the statistics she quoted are staggering. Age 85 and over is the fastest-growing segment of the U.S. population. By 2050, 19.8 million will be over 85. Half will have some kind of dementia. Kline said Tennessee’s laws about elder abuse, her specialty within Knox County District Attorney Charme Allen’s office, are outdated, making it difficult to prosecute those who prey on the elderly. Written in the 1970s, those laws were cutting-edge at the time, but they need a reboot. She said, and I agree, “It’s time for a change, and the time is now.” More statistics: 47 percent of elders will suffer abuse by their caregivers, and only one in 19 of those cases will be reported. Examples include physical abuse, neglect and financial exploitation. The stories will break your heart, like the one Kline shared about an unnamed 90-yearold woman who was left in a bathtub for four days by her “caregiver” son with nothing but a Honeybun and a yogurt to sustain her. Shocking? “Things like that happen all the time,” said Kline. She receives between five and 20 referrals a day, although she does not prosecute them all. She, along with Knoxville and Knox County law enforcement and Adult Protective Services, set up the first VAPIT (Vulnerable Adult Protective Investigation Team) in the state, making it a model that is now required in every Tennessee DA’s office. Kline is also part of a team that has drafted a new section of code for state law dealing just with elder abuse. The proposed change is modeled after child abuse laws because “these victims are vulnerable in ways similar to children.” To page A-2

By Shannon Carey This May, 22 wineries from East Tennessee and the Cumberland Plateau will gather in Oak Ridge for the first Nine Lakes Wine Festival, a chance for those wineries to sell their wares and build the brand of Tennessee wine. And once again, Union County’s Riddle family of Seven Springs Farm is at the heart of it all. When Rick and Donna Riddle’s daughter, Nikki, showed interest in becoming a winemaker, and their son, Jim, joined the farm’s Farm to Table meat and produce business, Rick set his cap at making sure the regional markets were strong so the family businesses would have a better chance at success. He credits Donna as the driving force behind the effort.

surges forward with festival

“The impetus for so much of this is Donna, and she doesn’t get a lot of the credit,” Rick said. You see, each successful Tennessee winery represents a family farm preserved, and for the Riddles that hits close to home. “The issue is that a young person can’t buy into this business unless they inherit a small fortune,” Rick said. Rick spearheaded collaborative marketing efforts region-wide, resulting in the Great Valley Wine Trail and groups of wine trails banding together into Nine Lakes Wine Country and the nonprofit Appalachian Region Wine Producers Association (ARWPA), of which Rick is president. Through these collaborations, $75 million worth of grant assis-

tance has come into East Tennessee’s grape, wine and local food industries, funds that can help young people and local families join the industry and save the family farm. “It promotes regional tourism, preserves farm families and the rural way of life in rural Appalachia,” Rick said. Some of the efforts of the ARWPA include using grant funds to purchase wine-making equipment that can be leased to wineries and establishing an American Viticultural Area (AVA). An AVA will allow easier marketing and branding of wine grown in the region, like NASCAR is to Bristol or barbecue is to Memphis. “You have a group of people that have decided that they’re willing

to work together,” Rick said. “The wineries know the value of what we’re trying to do.” It’s the ARWPA that makes the Nine Lakes Wine Festival possible. Tennessee law allows a wine festival to be held if the permit is sought by a nonprofit corporation made up of at least 10 member wineries in good standing with the state, Rick said. And the benefits are astounding. Rick said wine festivals contribute $1 million to Tennessee wine profits statewide. At the festival, patrons can taste wine and purchase wine by the bottle or by the case. Sales tax from those bottle and case purchases goes back to the home counties of each participating winery.

Lovely Place – the distillery at Lovely Bluff By Bonnie Peters As they say, one thing calls for another. The new Winery at Seven Springs has brought questions about legal whiskey distilleries in this area before Prohibition. I’ve written about the Mountain Park Distillery (Distillery No. 605 owned by Andrew Jackson Woods). As time goes by, I hope to learn more about other distilleries. In talking with my nephew Glenn McCoy, I discovered there’s a place in Anderson County called Lovely City. In Lovely City was registered United States Distillery No. 200, Second District, Tennessee. Lovely family members are said to have provided information on the city and the distillery back in the 1970s and indicated Mr. Lovely had two helpers in addition to his son John, who helped some before joining the Army and making it a career. At the time the city was incorporated, the distillery was producing about 33 gallons of whiskey per day. Each bushel of corn pro-

SUBOXONE Treating opiate addiction

duced about three gallons of whiskey, which means the distillery used about 11 bushels of corn per day. Lovely and his helpers ground the corn for the distillery, but it is said that Lovely insisted that “customer grinding always came first.” Interestingly, a federal inspector and gauger was at the still when it was in operation. The inspector collected the tax and labeled the wooden barrels for shipping. Each full barrel shipped from Lovely City was labeled “Registered Distillery No. 200 – Second District, Tennessee.” The whiskey was then hauled by wagon to the L&N Railway Depot in Coal Creek (Lake City) and shipped by train to Louisville, Ky., where it was aged, bottled and labeled. Some of the whiskey was sold under the name Log Cabin Whiskey. This whiskey is said to have been 110 to 115 proof and was cut to 100 proof at a Louisville or Cincinnati rectifying house. Pure limestone water was considered best for distilling whiskey, and Lovely Bluff was

a prime place for a distillery (or distilleries). The distillery was near a stream and waterfall in a hollow and water was piped from the spring to the still. Some of the Lovely family relatives remember that the wholesale price of the whiskey was around $1.40 to $1.50 per gallon. Most of it was shipped at the wholesale price to Louisville or Cincinnati. Some was retailed at Cornwell & Furr’s bar there in Lovely City at 10 cents a drink. Unless there were two distilleries at Lovely Bluff, it appears that Henry P. Settles was at one time part owner and operated the distillery at Lovely Bluff as Distillery No. 603 under the name Settles and Laughter. Hopefully, someone can answer more of the questions about distilling at Lovely Bluff. Settles and his wife, Sarah, lived in the Dark Hollow section of Union County – but perhaps relocated to Lovely City during the time he operated the distillery.

MacKenzie Metcalf, Thomas Metcalf and Braxton Koontz are ready to greet diners at Kirkland’s Kitchen, now open in the same building and with the same menu as the restaurant previously owned and operated by Herbert and Ruth Kirkland. Photo by S. Carey

Kirkland’s Kitchen keeps family tradition alive By Shannon Carey For the Metcalf family, reopening Kirkland’s Kitchen was like coming home. MacKenzie Metcalf is the grandson of the late Herbert and Ruth Kirkland, who ran Kirkland’s Kitchen from the 1970s to the 1990s. Born in Union County and raised on one of Hawaii’s outer islands, MacKenzie has fond memories of visits with his grandparents. “I personally missed the food here,” he said. “It was a treat growing up to come here and eat.” A former police officer, MacKenzie came to Union County in 2015 when his grandmother was sick with cancer, and he decided to stay. He soon decided to reopen the iconic restaurant with his father, Thomas Metcalf, and brotherin-law Braxton Koontz. They also hired

Lenore Woods to help in the restaurant. Now, Kirkland’s Kitchen is open seven days a week with the same menu, same recipes as MacKenzie’s grandparents used. Cafeteria-style serving options include roast beef, mashed potatoes and gravy, green beans, pinto beans, yeast rolls and cornbread muffins. There are also daily specials like chicken and dumplins and meatloaf, and made-to-order options like cheeseburgers, chicken sandwiches and fries. Thomas said the reception from the community has been good, with people who ate at Kirkland’s Kitchen stopping in and exclaiming over how it takes them back. “They say it smells the same, looks the same, tastes the same,” he said. And that great taste boils down

to made-from-scratch country food, cooked the way the Metcalfs remember and enjoy at home. That means real, thick chuck burgers, and pork belly and onions in the beans. “That’s what makes it good,” said Thomas. While the Metcalfs miss Hawaii, they also enjoy living in Union County. MacKenzie said he likes being near family and being in the country. “In the country, I think you have kinder people,” he said. He also likes the scenery and the changing seasons. They’re also enjoying working together as a family, and reviving the tradition of Kirkland’s Kitchen. The restaurant is at 1705 Maynardville Highway, Maynardville. Info: 865-680-6053

The festival is also crucial for growing visibility and awareness of wine produced in Nine Lakes Wine Country. Rick said only 12 percent of people in Tennessee are knowledgeable about the Tennessee wine industry. An event like the wine festival will help increase that figure. On top of that, 25 percent of the net ticket sales goes to charities chosen by the participating wineries, including Union County Humane Society and Relay for Life. There will also be a “Barrels of Fun” charity race the Saturday of the festival to benefit these charities. So, mark your calendars for May 19-20. The wine festival won’t just be fun for attendees. It will have real benefits for folks close to home. Info:

Elder law The team hopes Tennessee’s Legislature will adopt these proposals this year. “It’s a huge change, and it’s for the better,” said Kline. “We’re about 20 years behind, and it’s time to step up and make some changes.” Other problems exist. Right now, there is no mirror of child foster care for vulnerable adults, Kline

From page A-1 said. There is a need for more low-cost services and respite for caregivers. Kline doesn’t have an answer for those yet, but changing state law to stop abusers is a good place to start. It’s time to protect the folks who raised us. Call your legislators today. Shannon Carey is a freelance journalist and blogger. Find her on Facebook or at, or email

The legs you stand on

149 Durham Drive Maynardville, TN 37807


Chiropractic Outlook By Dr. Darrell Johnson, DC

If you’ve gone to a chiropractor because you have back pain, you might wonder why the doctor is so interested in your legs. The answer is easy: the feet and legs are the platform on which everything else relies. Even if you were born with legs of the same length, as most people are, muscles can become tight and pull bones out of line, whether it’s in the legs or other parts of the body. And this can cause problems in the back. Sometimes a person’s legs are of slightly different length, whether it’s a congenital condition or brought on by other factors. In that case, it’s like walking constantly on uneven ground. It can


pull everything above out of line. Muscles in misaligned areas will adjust to counter the imbalance and start pulling bones. If a leg problem is a functional one, brought on by tightened muscles, for example, chiropractic treatment can help. If it is a congenital problem, your chiropractor may refer you to a podiatrist, a doctor who specializes in foot and lower leg care. An orthotic device, one that fits into your shoe, can correct a leg length discrepancy or imbalance in your arches. A better body starts with a good foundation!

Surely times have changed. I look back at some of whom I considered my best teachers and know that their teaching methods would not now be considered effective per current educational expectations. There are some things, however, essential to the success of both teachers of old and modern educators. One of the most important of these is discipline. A now deceased teacher who attended college in the 1930s once told that she and her fellow future educators were introduced to innovative discipline. They were told to “wave a magic wand” over their students’ heads to “cast a spell” upon them to maintain order. One of her friends asked her, “Ordrey (Audrey), are you going to do that to your children when you get your own school?” Audrey Coulter replied, “I’ll wave a hickory stick over their heads!” The use of lumber was a preferred instrument of correction for many years in America’s schools. “Reading and writing and ’rithmetic” were often “taught to the tune of a hickory stick” (aka “switch”). Sometimes this carried over to the journey home. I have heard of at least one legendary Union County school bus driver who kept a switch over the sun visor and used it when necessary. Sometimes students figured out ways to get by with meanness and avoid the destruction of trees. My brother J.C. bragged to me that he was a certain teacher’s pet. He and another boy were sent to the spring to get a bucket of cool, fresh water for the classroom. As a prank, they “got their heads together” and decided to pee (today that would be “urinate”) a little bit in the bucket. The first person to take a drink was the teacher, who just mar-

Ronnie Mincey Teacher Time veled at how good that water tasted! Not all offenders got by with their mischief. My brother-in-law Cecil McMurray told me that once this same teacher whipped him. Unfortunately, he had matches in his back pocket at the time and his britches caught on fire! It seems Cecil was wearing hot pants when they weren’t cool! In later years, discipline became more humane. Hickory changed from switches into paddles. When a generation of students, now parents, rebelled and began in some cases suing teachers who paddled their children, all forms of corporal punishment practically disappeared, replaced with other forms of discipline such as staying in from play period, writing sentences, and standing in corners (or outside in the rain). Even most of these forms of correction are now frowned upon, and discipline in today’s classrooms has truly become a matter of creativity and psychology. This must be done, however, without teachers using sarcasm or lowering students’ self-esteem. The teachers with the best discipline are those who practice the “Golden Rule” with their students while keeping them actively engaged with meaningful work. But “all work and no play” leads to trouble. Next week I’ll tell you about the teacher who put that lesson into practice.

Vols in Super Bowls Football is a numbers game – wins and losses, yards gained, punting averages, pass percentages, attendance and millions generated by the SEC Network. Here’s one you probably haven’t heard but have undoubtedly eagerly awaited, the number of former Volunteers in Super Bowls past: 96. Another number goes with that one: 7. Tennessee ranks seventh in the talent supply chain for the NFL extravaganza. Miami is first with 117. Southern Cal is one behind, followed by UCLA (108), Michigan and Penn State (104 each) and Notre Dame (101). Quarterback Peyton Manning carried the Vol flag to four Super Bowls. Linebacker Jack Reynolds and defensive back Bill Bates played in three. There are secrets to such success – get drafted by or traded to a good team. Fourteen former Vols played in two Super Bowls: punters Ron Widby and Craig and Britton Colquitt; wide receivers Alvin Harper and Marcus Nash; offensive linemen Mickey Marvin, Raleigh McKenzie, Bruce Wilkerson and Chris Scott;

He said it seemed very strange. “I kept wondering what

all the excitement was about. We were just going to play another football game. It was no big deal. “I personified young and dumb. I had no sense of time, no perspective about professional football or the history of it. I was playing and having a great time. “After the loss, a great sense of missed opportunity lingered for years.” Eddie Brown had an interception for the Los Angeles Rams in Super Bowl XIV. Reynolds achieved legendary status as the Pied Piper of the San Francisco 49ers. He often surprised teammates but actually stunned them in 1982. Hacksaw was primed and ready long before kickoff.
