City of Crossville digs deeper to help Cumberland Co. Playhouse in crisis

Girard (Jerry) Etzkorn received the Robert Kindrich award for Outstanding Service to Medieval Studies.

Etzkorn gets Robert Kindrich award for his medieval studies SUBMITTED After retiring from St. Bonaventure University in 1995, Girard (Jerry) Etzkorn and wife Linda moved to Fairfield Glade where they have enjoyed many new friends, the beaty of the Cumberland plateau, playing bridge in two bridge groups and a couple of rounds of golf in the golf capitol of Tennessee. Jerry continues the work he had done at St. Bonaventure University by retrieving the texts of medieval authors from the manuscripts where they had lain hidden for seven centuries. Because of his efforts, the Medieval Academy of America has awarded him the Robert Kindrich award for Outstanding Service to Medieval Studies. The letter accompanying the award reads (in part) as follows: “One of the great historical enterprises of modern scholarship on the Middle Ages is the edition and publication of works of medieval philosophers and theologians... The editors of the great medieval thinkers usually labor alone or in samll teams dependent on small government grants or the wavering sponsorship of religious or national organizations. And there is much to do given how few medieval theological works exist in adequate critical editions, even for such figures as Thomas Aquinas and William of Ockham.

Rescuing and making accessible the monuments of medieval philosophy has een the life work of Girard J. Etzkorn, professor emeritus of the Franciscan Institute of St. Bonaventure University, for which the Medieval Academy of America is honoring him with the 2011 Robert L. Kindrick-CARA Award for Outstanding Service to Medieval Studies.” “Equipped with a formidable repertoire of languages and skills in paleography and manuscript studies, Girard Etzkorn has dedicated himself to the works of the great Franciscan theologians since the publication of his first article on Duns Scotus in 1955. He as edited or coedited the works of Roger Marston, John Pecham, William of Ockham, Duns Scotus, and Walter Chatton. Since his retirement he has redoubled his efforts by cooperating in editions of works of Henry of Ghent and Francis of Marchia. All scholars of late-medieval thought are very much in his debt, and we of the Medieval Academy wish him many more years of productive work in the future.” Jerry’s response is that he has been wonderfully blest with family, friends and colleagues while appreciating the thanks and gratitude of younger scholars whom he has helped along the way.

SUBMITTED The City of Crossville has made an additional investment beyond its normal annual amount to help the Cumberland County Playhouse (CCP) raise a half-million dollars to battle a financial crisis. The City has invested $25,000 annually with CCP for the past several years, and the City Council voted to invest an additional $25,000 for the 2011-2012 fiscal year to help the playhouse weather a multiyear economic downturn. “We have long recognized the positive impact - economic, social and cultural - that the Playhouse has on our community,” said City of Crossville Mayor J.H. Graham. “The Playhouse has been such an identifiable part of Cumberland County and Crossville for so long, and the City is proud to continue our partnership with it, and to help them through these difficult times. “The Playhouse is recognized as one of the top regional theaters in Tennessee, and one of the

finest in the Southeast,” Mayor Graham continued. “I know I speak for the entire City Council in saying we’ve enjoyed our partnership with the Playhouse as it has provided top-notch entertainment to our area, and made such an economic impact. The Playhouse is one of our community’s crown jewels.” The recession and rising gas prices have made a tough fiscal situation for the nonprofit performing arts nationwide, and for the Crossville landmark, despite what CCP Producing Director Jim Crabtree said have been expense cuts of $1 million since ’08, from $3.5 to $2.5 million. CCP is the only site in the Cumberlands among TN

Dept. of Tourist Development’s “Top 50 Attractions,” and the only rural nonprofit named a “Major Cultural Institution” by the TN Arts Commission. CCP is one of the few major state nonprofits funding both programs and facilities, and has run on 85% earned income since 1965, versus national nonprofit arts group averages of 50 to 60%. The crisis prompts CCP’s Board of Directors to lead a fundraising campaign - ”The Show Must Go On” - to stabilize and strengthen the 46year-old theater. The campaign has raised over $100K in private gifts, to fight recession now, and build stability for future fiscal storms, via stronger marketing, fundraising, endowment, and reserves. Several Tennessee foundations have invited CCP applications. The

general short-term goal is $500K. “The Playhouse is a wonderful source of entertainment, and has a strong positive economic impact on all our community, even if you’ve never visited it,” said Randy Graham, President/CEO of First National Bank of Tennessee. “It’s a magnet for consumers to visit our restaurants, purchase fuel, shop and stay overnight, all of which creates and retains jobs while generating tax revenues. “Cumberland County is #1 in Upper Cumberland tourism dollars, and the Play-house is a major component in this,” bank president Graham said. “I know many current residents who relocated here after a CCP visit. Many buy homes, vehicles, attend our churches, and fuel our See PLAYHOUSE page 2A

Graham III; ECD Assistant Commissioner Will Alexander; Roane State President Dr. Gary Goff; and other dignitaries from across the state. Financing for the CBI was supported with federal, state and local resources. The Cumberland County Commission and Crossville City Council each committed $250,000 for construction of the CBI. In addition, Roane State received an $880,000 grant from the EDA. The Tennessee Board of Regents, which oversees the state’s public community colleges and the public universities outside the University of Tennessee system, made land available for constructing the

building on Roane State’s Cumberland County campus. Roane State operates the CBI. Partners in the project, in addition to Roane State and the county and city, include the Crossville-Cumberland County Chamber of Commerce, Tennessee Technological University, the Cumberland County School System, and the Tennessee Technology Center at Crossville. The incubator is a 10,000-square-foot, energy efficient business facility with nine office areas and three bays suitable for light manufacturing operations. The building has a break room, a conference room, receptionist area, mail room, shipping and receiving area for large packages, security, Internet and phone services.

Golf ’s FAQs Questions from the range regarding distance By FRANK CHRISTOPHER PGA Professional Thanks again for the overwhelming response to the Faq’s golf articles. Keep the questions coming in. This week we will be talking about some of the more frequent questions that I have received while on the practice range. Why/how can I hit the ball further? Gaining distance is the most commonly asked question I receive, whether in the shop, on the lesson tee, or at the Cleveland Golf/Srixon inbox. Unfortunately, there isn’t one quick answer that will help everyone. There are many areas within the swing mechanics to help most golfers attain more distance. Swing arc, proper levers, overall strength, and flexibility are the main

areas of concern within the golf swing to help gain distance. To the surprise of many, the golf swing isn’t always the best answer to gain distance. Properly matched equipment can often be the quickest way to gain some length. The shaft of the golf club is often called the “engine of the club” for a reason. The proper flex and length of the golf shaft has a direct impact on how far the ball goes. Other factors that are just as important are loft and weight. A term that is becoming more relevant when diagnosing length is “smash factor”, which leads to my next question. What is “Smash Factor”? Smash factor is the ration between ball speed and club head speed. To determine smash factor,

you take your ball speed and divide that by club head speed. For example, I could have a swing speed of 75 mph, and a ball speed of 112 mph, and my smash factor would be 1.5 (112/75). Another example, a swing speed of 115 mph and ball speed of 172 mph would equal a smash factor of ...1.5. In these examples, the swing speeds were 40 mph different but smash factor was the same. I know, I know, lots of math but bear with me. Let’s say you have a swing speed of 115 mph with a smash factor of 1.3, the resulting ball speed would be 150 mph. A swing speed of 105 mph (10 mph less) and a smash factor of 1.55 would result in a ball speed of 163 mph. The lesson from this example is that it’s a mix of

BOTH power AND precision that gains the most distance. Centeredness of contact (hitting the sweet spot) is crucial to any improvement in distance. Off center hits on the club face can result in losing between 10 and 20% of your ball speed than if you hit the ball on the sweet spot. Why do I hit my 3wood (or other “wood” or hybrid) further than my driver? First of all you aren’t alone, did you know that a recent study found that 80% of golfers hit their 3 wood further than their driver? Wow! That percentage is roughly what I see on the lesson tee as well. What’s the

sang in a few operettas in high school, Jim did not sing publicly again until he was asked to sing at a wedding when he was 40 years of age. Twenty years later his distinctive rich and distinctive voice made him a star performer of the Senior Star Showcase at the Community College of Baltimore. Shows in New York, Las Vegas, and Disney World followed. Performing for one’s professional peers is probably the most difficult for anyone, and certainly this is true for a singer. In Las Vegas, Jim received a special accolade of a standing ovation when he performed for an audience of 300 professional singers. Jim has great empathy for the songs he sings, he sings from the heart just as he always has when singing for friends and family. Jim considers Fairfield Glade, “this piece of heaven place.” Plan to join us for dinner and songs that will sound appropriately...heavenly! Do plan to join your neighbors at Druid Hills Legends Dining Room,


each year. He also served as Tail Twister and currently is Good Cheer Committee Chairman. He is an active member of the FFG United Methodist Church when not involved with Lions work. He contributes his time to the Memorial Garden, Rummage Sale and Angel Food Ministry committee, attends United Methodist Men and is a member of the Emergency Response Team. In addition, he volunteers at Habitat for Humanity. It sure sounds to me like Vince Richardson is totally qualified to receive the Virginia Lindsey Award for 2011.

reason? The shaft is shorter, which means that you are closer to the ball and thus make contact more closely to the sweet spot! One of the first lessons I received when I was learning the game was to swing as hard as I could...which was no problem...and stay in balance...which is a problem to this day! Funny thing is , that’s Rory McIlroy’s swing philosophy as well. It’s working out a little better for him than it is me!

Having lost all but five percent of her sight, she has worked to make others more aware of blind people and the Leader Dog program. Donna met Ken in 2006 as he was collecting donations for the

Lions Annual White Cane Days. The Lions “White Cane Days” are held each year to provide donations to help seven (7) agencies that serve sight and hearing impaired people. In addition, a portion of the funds go to Lions World Services for the Blind and Leader Dog for the Blind. Donna will discuss her blindness and demonstrate the important relationship with her special dog. They have been together for five years and Norman has made a very big improvement in her blind life. Music entertainment will be provided by “Just Friends,” a male quartet from FFG, organized by Ron Borges. They’ll be entertaining us while singing with a beautiful a cappella sound.

The inspirational speaker will be Mr. Harold Munson of Churchville, VA, on the topic “A Lifetime on GPS,” help for life’s uncertain highways. Mr. Munson has been in engineering and management, with the added privilege of starting a manufacturing company. Mrs. Munson will be accompanying him. Get-acquainted time begins at 11:30 a.m. with lunch and the program from 12 – 1:30 p.m. The menu is pulled pork, baked beans, pasta salad, dessert & beverage, catered by Wildwood Catering. If you wish a Heart Smart meal, please indicate it upon making your reservation. The cost is only $11 all inclusive. Reservations should be submitted on or before Sat-

Food for Thought Some sizzling summer recipes Summer is here although it seems like we’ve had enough of this heat already. But it is great grilling weather. The following salmon recipe is from Janis ELLIE Smoke GUSTIN of King Food Editor Salmon, Alaska who says this is her favorite way to fix it. Barbecued Alaskan Salmon 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine 2 Tbsp. brown sugar 1-2 garlic cloves, minced 1 Tbsp. lemon juice 2 tsp. soy sauce 1/2 tsp. pepper 4 salmon steaks (1 in. thick) In a small saucepan, combine first six ingredients. Cook and stir until sugar is dissolved. Meanwhile, grill salmon, covered, over med.-hot heat for 5 min. Turn salmon; baste with butter sauce. Grill 7-9 min. longer, turning and basting occasionally, or until salmon flakes easily with a fork. Yield: 4 servings. This potato recipe from Jill Jellett of Leduc, Alberta thakes 1/2 hr. to cook, so should be started before the salmon. The are also great with steak of chicken.

Potatoes Plus 4 med. red potatoes, cubed 1 med. onion, cubed 1 med. sweet red pepper, cubed 1/2 tsp. seasoned salt 1/4 tsp. garlic powder 1/4 tsp. each dried basil, dill weed and parsley flakes 1/4 cup butter or margarine Combine vegetables and seasonings; divide between four pieces of heavy duty foil (about 12 x 12 in.). Dot with butter. Fold foil around vegetables and seal tightly. Grill, covered, over med. heat 25-50 min. Open foil carefully to allow steam to escape. Yield: 4 servings. This cheesebread from Donna Britsch of Tega Cay, S. Carolina would go well with any meal. Cheese Bread 1 unsliced loaf (1/2 lb.) French bread 2 Tbsp. butter or margarine, softened 1/2 tsp. Italian Seasoning 1/2 cup shredded mozzarella cheese 1/4 cup grated Parmesan Cheese Slice bread lengthwise; place cut side up on a baking sheet. Spread butter on surfaces; sprinkle with 1/2 of Italian seasoning. Top with cheeses and remaining Italian seasoning. Bake at 350 for 20-25 min. or until cheese is melted. Cut crosswise into 1 in. pieces. Yield: 4 servings.

This recipe from the National Honey Board is a quick, smooth and creamy treat. Honey Berry Milk Shakes 1pt. Vanilla ice cream or frozen yogurt 2 1/2 cups sliced fresh strawberries 1/2 cup milk 1/4 cup honey In a blender, combine all ingredients; cover and process until smooth. Pour into glasses. Yield: 4 servings of 202 calories each when prepared with fat free, frozen yogurt and skim milk. Diabetic exchanges: 1 1/2 starch, 1 1/2 fruit. This last thought from Margaret Peterson. “Unseen Beauty All around us is an unseen God He cares how we each may live. He gives us a chance to choose Him, Chances to love and forgive. Let us not waste a moment of time To prove out love in return, For he is the One who gives us our breath And causes the world to turn.” Please send your recipes or recipe requests to Glade Vista, 3056 Peavine Road, Crossville, TN 38571 or email to .

County Government Balanced Budget Proposal ready The Budget Committee’s recommended budget for all

County Services during Fiscal Year 2011-2012 has been “put to bed”. Obviously, it’s not “tucked in” until the full Commission accepts and approves it. The proposed budget and associated tax rate will be scheduled on the regular July Monthly Meeting of the full Commission for consideration. The good news is that there is no required property tax increase to balance this bud-

get. Some of the allocations of the property tax revenues will change from this year’s distribution but the total rate remains the same. Twice weekly meetings during April and CARMIN May, folLYNCH lowed by several long and sometimes contentious meetings in June, were required to scrutinize every revenue and expense line item in the General Services, Highway Department, Debt Service, Sanitation and several Special Funds. Department Managers and elected Officials met with the Committee to discuss their service operations in detail. A joint meeting was held with the City of Crossville to review local nonprofit organizations that contract with the County and/or City to provide services. A meeting was held with the Director of Schools where we were told how much the State BEP funding formula required the County to provide to the School system. It was made clear that the Board of Education was not asking for any more local funds than the required amount. Given this fact and the lack of information on

the estimated expenditures and revenues for the current fiscal year, there was no detailed discussion of next year’s revenues and expenses in this budget. Most employees will be receiving salary increases. Given the difficult economic environment during the last few years, the first of this month marks 36 months since anyone in the General Services, Sanitation Department and Highway Department have received an increase. With the improving sales tax collection we’ve seen in the last year and the fairly stable property tax collections, along with continuously decreasing variable expenses, the Committee prioritized employee raises over other requested expense increases. The amount of increase for an individual will be dependent on where each employee is on his/her respective Wage and Salary Scale level and step. While the majority of employees will return to where they should be for their job level and experience, we need to remember that the Scale itself hasn’t been adjusted in four years. Hopefully, we will be able to remedy that next year. Most other operating expenses were held flat at this year’s levels. We now have a full year’s operating experience with the new Jail/Justice Center and Library as a basis for our budgets. The last cell of the Landfill closed last month and the expenses of disposing of our solid waste using a commercial transfer system are still very much just educated estimates. The Debt Service fund balance continues to decline (actually faster than planned) and given the amount of long term debt, we need to now consider restoring some of the tax revenues diverted from this fund to meet increased school funding requirements during the last several years. We still have a fairly austere budget. The local economy is “stabilized to slightly improving” but we are not near where we were in 2006-2007. I’m not ready to declare victory but I am becoming cautiously optimistic about the County’s financial outlook. As always, please feel free to contact me with your questions, suggestions, concerns, issues or comments at 484-4137 or email at

Where’s John? Half-Way, Half-Gallon Challenge By SUSAN WIGINGTON As a child, you were undoubtedly dared or challenged to do something by your “friends” or siblings. That dare usually involved doing something that you would not normally do. The pressure to live up to the challenge is even greater when the dare is a tradition, and especially if the challenge is widely known or publicized. That was exactly the situation I faced when I completed the first half of my Appalachian Trail (AT) hike on June 13, 2011. The traditional challenge is that AT thru-hikers must attempt to eat an entire half-gallon of ice cream at one sitting, after completing the first half of the Trail. Although I had not read a newspaper in over two months, my wife informed me that I had to accept the challenge, since a nationally- syndicated news article highlighting this tradition had recently appeared in the newspapers and several folks had mentioned it to her. Just beyond the sign in Pennsylvania marking the AT mid-point (1,090.5 miles), there is a camp store in the Pine Grove Furnace State Park, where they sell ice cream by the half-gallon. By the way, these were real half-gallons, not the 1.5 quart container that is often now being sold as a half gallon in the stores today. I had hoped to purchase Neapolitan ice cream, because I figured with three different flavors in one container, I would not get tired of a single flavor and quit part way through the challenge. But, the store was out of my first choice, so I went instead with vanilla ice cream containing chocolate swirls and peanuts. I had paced the consumption of my snacks and lunch that day so that my peak hunger would

occur in the mid-afternoon, about the time I would take the challenge. It was a relatively cool afternoon, so I took my half gallon to the picnic table in the sun. I felt that I had a distinct advantage over the others who had accepted the challenge because I was armed with my long-handle, super strong titanium spoon, as opposed to just a plastic spoon. I began eating from around the edges of the box where the ice cream first softened up, working toward the center. Forty minutes later I had consumed the entire

half-gallon! I had met the Half-Way, Half-Gallon Challenge and survived. The prize for meeting the challenge is a small wooden spoon with the words “1⁄2 gallon challenge” stamped on it. But, the real satisfaction came from knowing that I had greatly boosted my calorie intake for the day! And then, I ate my dinner about an hour later. Now that I have met that challenge I would like to lay one on you. Through the Hiking for the House of Hope fundraising campaign, we have so far raised $5,855.27. I challenge you to make your contribution today and help double the funds raised during the next 1090.5 miles of my hike of the Appalachian Trail. You can get the donation forms on-line at www. or pick up forms at Plateau Outdoors on West Avenue or the CMC Wellness Center. Remember that contributions are taxdeductible and all funds go to the House of Hope to help the endangered children in our community. All those who contribute to Hiking for the House of Hope campaign will have their names entered in an end-of-hike drawing for an additional prize. Thank you for your support.
