Mallory Carter strikes a pose in a lovely black two-piece prom dress.

By Ayla Griffin Prom is right around the corner, and that means Union County High School students are thinking about dresses, tuxedos, corsages and everything that goes with that special night. But a great prom dress doesn’t have to break the bank. The UCHS softball team held

“Say Yes to the Dress,” a prom dress resale event, Feb. 4. Roxanne Patterson led the parent group that organized the event, which was a fundraiser for the team. Coach Lance Lay was on hand, as well as numerous parents and team members, to help everyone find the dress that was right for them.

Wilson Park passed over for grant Second opportunity on horizon By Shannon Carey Union County’s application for a Tourism Enhancement Grant from the state’s office of Economic and Community Development did not make the cut for funding, according to a recent press release. The Union County mayor’s office applied for the grant to make improvements to Wilson Park, including installing a public address system and improving restroom facilities. The object was to make the park a better host facility for large-scale events like the successful Thunder in the Park festival held last fall. The rejection comes despite Union County’s distressed county status, which adds points to Union County’s state grant applications.

PAIN PILLS?

Union County was added to the list of distressed counties in summer 2016, due to factors like high unemployment and poverty levels. Twenty-nine counties and municipalities were awarded Tourism Enhancement Grants, including the towns of Dandridge and Jonesborough, Anderson County and Campbell County. Fifty communities applied for the grants. According to Jody Sliger, Three Star Director for the state ECD office, the Tourism Enhancement Grants were scored by a team that included representatives from many state agencies. “Union County was given extra points as were all distressed counties,” Sliger said, adding that factors like the county’s population and the project’s potential for economic impact were also considered. “If the project doesn’t score

high enough, we’re not going to fund the project,” Sliger said. “We started at the top and went down until we ran out of money, but the top 10 of the projects not funded were within 14 points of the last funded project. It was very close scoring, and they all did a great job with their applications.” Sliger said projects funded included restroom facilities, stages, boat ramps and RV parks. But, some of the funding went to create “tourism asset action plans,” hiring consultants to “figure out the best way to build those assets up,” she said. However, the state ECD office Jan. 31 announced a grant program targeted at Tennessee’s distressed counties, which could see the Wilson Park improvements or another vital project funded. Representatives from the UT Institute for Public Service have been work-

ing with the 23 distressed counties, Union County included, to craft goals based on each county’s assets, and those counties are eligible for $50,000 or $100,000 Asset Enhancement Grants for projects that will help the county meet at least one of those goals. Economic and Community Development commissioner Randy Boyd said, “We have been working with our most distressed communities to develop strategic plans based on their assets. We promised them that this would not be just another planning exercise, but that we would provide technical assistance and funding to help them implement their plans.” The Asset Enhancement grants are funded through the Rural Economic Opportunity Act. Applications are available on the ECD office website beginning today, Feb. 15, and are due March 31.

Tech conference puts kids in charge Kids will lead tech summit By Shannon Carey

Brooklyn Forester

Briseis Aljumaily

Luttrell spelling bee winners Fifth-grader Brooklyn Forester is the winner of the Luttrell Elementary School spelling bee and will represent the school at the countywide spelling bee March 7 at 9 a.m. in the Union County High School library. Runner-up was third-grader Briseis Aljumaily.

On Friday, March 10, Luttrell Elementary School will be transformed into a high-tech conference with students running the show, but this isn’t just fun and games. This professional conference setting will have students and teachers learning from students as the kid presenters give their versions of TedTalks on topics ranging from robotics to stop motion animation. Teacher Cheryl Bowman has been leading the tech charge at Luttrell for many years, starting the afterschool Eagle Tech Club and earning a Level 2 Google teacher certificate, one of four in the Union County school system. The Student Led Technology and Innovation Conference was her idea, one that took root after attending an education technology

865-314-8171 KN-1462193

summit this year. At the summit, Bowman heard from educators from a school in Ohio that hosted their own student-led conference. “I thought, ‘We could do that,’” said Bowman. “They had 700 students, and I was like, we can do it with 200.” Students in second through fifth grade will attend the conference, choosing what presentations they want to hear and visiting other classrooms to hear them. Students in third through fifth grade applied to be presenters, submitting their ideas to Bowman and working with her to create their presentations. “It puts more ownership onto the kids,” said Bowman. “Teaching gets them to apply everything they learn in an actual classroom. They have to write, edit, practice their speaking skills, and it’s usually something they are excited about.” And those topics run the

gamut. Preston McClain is teaching about creating music on a computer, not because he has a musical background, but because he finds the topic fascinating. Hannah Lawson likes graphic design, so she chose to present about making computer wallpapers and themes. Another student will demonstrate how to create mods in Minecraft. “I’m excited because the kids are excited,” said Bowman. Students attending the conference will all eat lunch together that day to get the true professional conference experience. “I want the kids to be together to have those conversations like you would have at a conference, everybody sharing what they’ve learned,” said Bowman. There will even be a keynote speaker. Derek Voiles, 2017 Tennessee Teacher of the Year and seventh-grade teacher at Lincoln Heights

Middle School in Hamblen County, will speak to students about his experience bringing 21st century skills into his classroom. The hardest part for Bowman so far has been letting the kids take charge, though. “Taking a step back and letting the kids do it all has been a challenge,” said Bowman. Luttrell Elementary principal Sonja Saylor said the conference is a unique opportunity for the students, and she is proud of Bowman bringing the idea to life. “To have this opportunity in second through fifth grade is pretty awesome,” she said. Bowman thanked everyone who has contributed to getting the conference off the ground, including Saylor, Director of Schools Dr. Jimmy Carter, Trevor Collins, Jonathan Smith and the students and faculty at Luttrell Elementary.

Here I am

In this scrapbook photo, the late Charles McDaniel is hard at work at Here’s Hope Mission House, now known as Hope Mission of the Crossroads, which he helped found.

After these things God tested Abraham. He said to him, “Abraham!” And he said, “Here I am.” (Genesis 22:1 NRSV) Don’t say to God “Here I am” unless you really mean it. God will take you up on your offer. The dealings between God and Abraham were unusual, to say the least. God had promised Abraham a son, but God was slow in delivering on that promise. Sarah was well past the age of childbearing when three men appeared before Abraham. Being a good host, he offered them food and drink. The men told Abraham that his wife would bear him a son. Sarah, inside the tent, laughed out loud. She knew better. Or thought she did! The Lord then spoke to Abraham, “Why did Sarah laugh and say, ‘Shall I indeed bear a child, now that I am old?’ Is anything too wonderful for the Lord?” But Sarah compounded her mistake by denying that she had laughed. The Lord said, “Oh, yes, you did laugh.” (Note to self: Don’t argue with the Lord!) God was as good as His word, however, and Sarah did indeed bear a son in her old

age. Then comes one of the most suspenseful and painful stories in scripture. The Lord instructs Abraham to take his only son, Isaac, – this yearned-for miracle child! – and offer him for a burnt offering on a mountain to which God would lead him. What a terrible, horrific test! At this point in the story, I always envision the rendition in the movie “The Bible.” I can see Abraham’s upraised arm, his hand holding the knife that would sacrifice that precious, prayed-for son. God’s brinksmanship always makes me uncomfortable, until I remember that God watched His own Son die, with no lamb to take His place!

Every Thursday in a brick house at Harbison’s Crossroads, a group of friends carry on the legacy of one man who cared a lot. That man is the late Charles McDaniel, a well-known member of the Gibbs community and Clear Springs Baptist Church, and that legacy is Hope Mission of the Crossroads. McDaniel helped found the mission, originally named Here’s Hope Mission House, in September 2011, to provide clothing and household items to those in need. But he was helping the poor long before 2011, even before he joined Clear Springs. Hope Mission director Lynn Miller said McDaniel started going on mission trips to economically depressed areas of Kentucky when he was a member of

North Acres Baptist Church. When he joined Clear Springs, the church had already purchased land in the heart of Gibbs between Emory Road and Tazewell Pike for a new church. And that land included a brick basement ranch-style house fronting on Tazewell Pike. “He came to Clear Springs, this house was available, and he put it together and here we go,” said Miller. The mission was twofold: to help people in need locally and in Sneedville, located in economically depressed Hancock County, Tenn. Once a year at the end of March, Hope Mission volunteers travel to Sneedville to give folks clothes, shoes, blankets and more. They have free barbecue, gospel music and a Bible lesson. They throw similar parties at the Mission House, one each spring and again in August for back-to-school time. The house is also open to the public every second and fourth Thursday for people in need to drop in. Other Thursdays are for sorting and stocking. The mission sends items to Angelic Ministries and Lost Sheep Ministry in Knoxville, too. Miller said many people in Sneedville suffer under unbearable poverty.

“They are in one of the most unemployed counties in the state of Tennessee,” he said. “There are jobs in Rogersville or Morristown, but they’re so far away they can’t afford the gas. Some of them don’t have doors on their trailers. We give out emergency blankets and you’ll see those blankets hanging over their doors to keep the cold out.” The real mission, though, is to minister to people’s souls. “We can give clothes away all day long,” said Miller. “But the bottom line is we’re going to get people saved. We witness to them every time we get a chance.” Miller’s wife and son, Jo and Les, along with friends Argil and Glenda Vineyard and Sue Irwin, are also active in the mission. Ask them and they’ll tell you all the moving stories from their time with the Mission House, like the little boy who just wanted a Christmas tree, or the woman who led her grandson to Christ with a Bible she received at the mission. And all of them say their lives have been enriched through the mission. “God’s love sums it up,” said Argil. “We want his will to be done.” When McDaniel passed

away, the Mission House board of directors found themselves without their energetic leader, but the core group buckled down and kept the mission going, along with McDaniel’s wife, Cathy, who serves on the board of directors. “When Charley passed it was a big shock,” said Argil. “What do we do now? We didn’t have the answer, but the Lord provided us with an answer.” “We want to go where we can help people and where we can share God and his spirit. We use what we have to get in the door,” said Glenda. Hope Mission of the Crossroads is always accepting donations of clothing, shoes and household items. They do not accept televisions or child car seats that have passed the expiration date. Right now, the mission is in need of volunteers who can lift furniture. “We’re here for everybody, and we always take donations,” said Jo. “And if they can’t donate, we could use their prayers,” added Argil. Hope Mission at the Crossroads is at 7336 Tazewell Pike, and hours are 10 a.m. to 1 p.m., every second and fourth Thursday. Info: 865-688-7674

Most interesting Volunteer One Mind, One Accord The civic club speech was “Highly favored, richly blessed.” My modest remarks included tidbits about Sarah and Tom Siler and Ralph Millett and Roland Julian and a who’s-who of Tennessee sports names that are or were at least a small part of my life – all the way back to Nathan W. Dougherty, who tipped a nickel each week for newspaper delivery, Robert R. Neyland when he was bigger than his bronze statue and even an interesting sophomore tailback, John Majors, in a 1954 geography class. “Any questions?” said the host. From a face in the crowd: “Of all those, the hundreds or a thousand, who was the most interesting?” I was suddenly speechless. No way I was going to answer that. No way. But the wheels started whirring. Stu Aberdeen. Condredge Holloway. Dewey Warren. Richmond Flowers. Ernie Grunfeld. Ray Bussard. Peyton Manning. Willie Gault. Pat Summitt. Howard Bayne. Steve Kiner. A.W. Davis. Reggie White. Chuck Rohe. I shook my head and said there were too many interesting choices. I offered the

Marvin West

valid excuse that the mind plays tricks in old age and got the heck out of there – to a standing ovation I am sure. After all, others were leaving, too. That afternoon, “most interesting” came back time and time again. I thought of Coppley Vickers and Doug Atkins and Phil Garner and Lester McClain and Orby Lee Bowling. More and more, many more. I finally got around to Robert Allen Dickey, baseball pitcher and English lit major of the mid-1990s, avid reader, academic AllAmerican, Olympic star. He was the first-round draft choice who lost $735,000 in bonus money when the Texas Rangers discovered his right elbow lacked an ulnar collateral ligament. He did the bouncearound, sometimes here but mostly there. I recalled an unusual game with the Buffalo Bisons against the

Durham Bulls. R.A. gave up a leadoff single and retired the next 27 batters. He eventually got paid, as in many millions, when he mastered R.A. Dickey the rare art of delivering an angry knuckleball, not a butterfly, for strikes. He had one-hitters back to back and set a bunch of records. He won 20 games and the National League Cy Young Award in 2012 with the New York Mets. He got a really big payday from the Toronto Blue Jays. He will appear this summer, at age 42, with the Atlanta Braves. Dickey is married to Anne Bartholomew of the famous Middle Tennessee football family. They have four children. He is very interesting. He is the only former Vol to have climbed Mount Kilimanjaro. He got that urge from his boyhood read of Hemingway. His risky mission was to raise funds and awareness for one of his charitable projects, the prevention or reduction of trafficking of women in India. Dickey is an evangelical

Behold, how good and how pleasant it is for brethren to dwell together in unity! –Psalms 133:1

Christian who helps Honoring the Father ministries in Ocala, Fla. It sends medical supplies, powdered milk and baseball equipment to impoverished youth in Latin America. He has been profiled on “60 Minutes” and featured in The New Yorker. He wrote a very personal book, a jagged, cutting memoir, “Wherever I Wind Up,” that describes sexual abuse by a baby sitter, tough times growing up with an alcoholic mother, his sins as a husband and how close he came to suicide. R.A. Dickey is the only ex-Vol with an honorary Doctorate of Sacred Letters from Wycliffe College at the University of Toronto. He spoke to graduates of the Anglican theological school. “This life is about changing other lives; it’s about introducing people to the hope of Christ.” Dickey has been called the smartest player in baseball. I can’t substantiate that. Some of the stuff he reads and talks about is above my understanding. I can say, based on Tennessee sports family standards, he is very interesting. So is Joshua Dobbs.

Perhaps my greatest experience with this Christian concept occurred not in church but in collusion with friends Deanie Carver and Sandra Price while going to Lincoln Memorial University on Saturdays to obtain our Educational Specialist degrees. My childhood education in the 1970s and undergraduate college education in the 1980s exemplified independent work. By the time we worked on the Ed.S. in the 1990s, the focus had shifted to the group or collaborative concept. Each group member has specific tasks to complete for the entire group to accomplish its goal. For this concept to work effectively, group members have to work together well. Carver, Price and I were a great team, but there was an interesting glitch along the way. We had diligently worked to complete a lengthy assignment. I was tasked to type the final copy. The three of us agreed to meet at 6 a.m. at the Central Office to make a copy for each group member and one copy to turn in to the instructor, Dr. Fred Bedelle. We met as planned and made our copies. Class began at LMU in Harrogate at 8 a.m. I remember having such a feeling of peace about the major assignment just finished. I was perfectly relaxed until about 10 a.m., when we discovered that neither of us had the paper to turn in – worse, neither of us had even one single copy! We panicked! Price had driven that week, and she drove alone all the way back to the Central Office in Maynardville from

A really good resource to collectors is the East Tennessee Chapter 42 of the National Association of Watch and Clock Collectors. Mike Carpenter, who has a shop on Kingston Pike; Jim Coulson, near Chattanooga, and other members are authorities on clocks and watches.

Chapter 42 meets at 10:30 a.m. the first Saturday of February, April, June, August, October and December at Bradbury Community Center, just off I-40 at Kingston. Visitors are always welcome to attend these educational horological programs (horology being the science of measuring time).

Harrogate to find the paper. All that she found was a few pages that had not copied well that we had discarded earlier. The original and every single copy had vanished, never to be seen by any of us again. We each had our speculations of how three seemingly intelligent college educated people could simultaneously have lost something so important. We figured we had some help with the misplacement, though nothing could have been proven. This would have been a disaster but for a few things. First, I still had the handwritten rough draft of the original paper and was therefore able to type it again. Second, Dr. Bedelle was understanding and gave us until the next class to turn in the assignment. Sadly, like most originals, the replacement is never as good, and that was true in this case. Nevertheless, the revised version still received an “A” and our academic standing was unscathed. For our final project, we wrote a mini science curriculum. We presented it to Dr. Bedelle, and he was thrilled. Though he asked me if my contribution to the finished project was to bring the women coffee, he praised all three of us to the president of LMU, who wrote us a wonderful congratulatory letter.

A chiropractic exam is a pain and stress-free procedure that will ultimately provide you with a boost in your quality of life. Through the exam, the chiropractor will be able to determine what steps to take to either correct a problem or to maintain a healthy condition. The doctor will check the range of motion for various joints, including the neck. How far you can turn your head to the left and right can indicate whether you have a subluxation – the technical term for a misalignment of bones – in your spine. The chiropractor may also examine your spine by palpation – by touch. In addition, the chiropractor

may also use X-rays, video fluoroscopy or magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) to diagnose a problem. The chiropractor will check the length of your legs. Even a slight difference in the length of legs could indicate a subluxation. He or she will also look at your posture and check particularly, as with the legs, if your shoulders are level. If one is higher than the other, that too could indicate a spinal issue. Don’t hesitate to visit a chiropractor. A healthy spine is essential to your quality of life.
