Safety Center talks begin again
By Mike Steely
[email protected]
When a mentally ill person
is arrested in Knox County,
the suspect is taken to jail and
housed with other inmates prior
to trial. The sheriff’s department
has estimated that at least 25%
of the inmates are in those
categories and the housing and
upkeep is expensive. Plus those
people are temporarily in a facility
that holds a harsher and more
violent population.
The Maloneyville Road Detention
Center is already overcrowded
and a new facility to house the
non-violent jail population would
help free up some space there.
Where the new facility would be
built isn’t known but there’s some
opposition to building it near the
Detention Center.
For several years the need for
a special facility, a Safety Center,
has been discussed and the
matter was on the Knox County
Commission’s February 16 work
session agenda, in a second
effort to ask for bids to build such
a facility. The discussion will be
postponed as the Safety Center
Committee wants to get more
agencies involved in the plans.
The first round of bidding saw
only one bidder, the Helen Ross
McNabb Center. Although Knox
County has indicated funds would
be provided for its share the city
and state have lagged behind a
funding commitment. Supporters
are asking the city to kick in $1
million and a promise of state
funding has been rumored.
Proponents of the Safety
Center estimate the building
cost at $2 million and about $1.7
each year to operate. Sheriff J.J.
Jones says he’d like to see the
new Center open before he leaves
office and Randy Nichols, the
sheriff’s special counsel director,
has been pushing for action on
the proposal since he served as
Attorney General. Nichols has
said that currently the Detention
Center is spending about $89,000
per month on prescription drugs
and medical supplies for the
care of inmates and that would
be reduced if the Safety Center
was built.
The commission’s Safety
Center Committee met Friday
on the 6th floor of the CityCounty Building with Sheriff’s
Department representatives to
begin discussing the need and
the details. The possibility of
building the new facility behind
the McNabb Center is also being
considered. The committee
consists of Commissioners Mike
Brown, Jeff Ownby, Randy Smith
BOE Postpones
Interim
Superintendent
Process Decision
By Sally Absher
[email protected]
Last week the Board of
Education defeated a resolution supporting Cultural Competency Training
brought forth by Amber
Rountree on behalf of
Student Representative Sydney Gabrielson.
Gabrielson is continuing
efforts on this topic started by last year’s Student
Rep, Adam Hasan.
The resolution supports
training for teachers and
administrators to better
interact and instruct with
students from all ethnic,
socioeconomic, and religious backgrounds.
While all members
of the BOE support the
training, at issue was the
board majority’s desire
to wait until the Disparities in Educational Outcomes task force completes their work and
brings recommendations
to the Board, scheduled
for this May. Chairman
Doug Harris was especially leery of adopting a
resolution that commits
the Board to accepting
all the Task Force’s yet to
be known recommendations. He said, “Frankly,
we can’t make that commitment because it could
come with financial constraints that we’re just
not able to meet...I’d
hate to promise something that we potentially
cannot do.”
A student-led press
conference was held at
the AJ Building immediately prior to Monday’s
work session meeting.
Board member Karen
Carson complained that
she had not been notified
about the press conference, and then proceeded to “school” Gabrielson on proper procedure
for writing resolutions
and organizing press
conferences. Gabrielson showed great maturity and class in politely
and humbly accepting the
criticism, but many who
attended the meeting

and Amy Broyles, Nichols, and
representatives of other agencies
and companies. Additional
members include representatives
from the District Attorney’s office,
and the Sheriff’s Department.
Brown was elected chairman
and he asked Andy Black of Helen
Ross McNabb to be a consultant
in the process. Black said that the
initial facility could be expanded
as needed and current plans,
which could change, call for a 24
bed unit.
“Let’s test drive it and start with
a number we can serve,” Black
said.
Brown said the committee
needs to develop an “umbrella
agency” to coordinate care
with hospitals, other agencies
and businesses and is asking
that a representative of the
city and county mayors’ offices
become involved. Vivian Shipe, a
proponent of a Safety Center, was
also selected for the committee.
There’s some debate about
how large the facility would be,
how many beds, how long a
patient would stay there and what
treatment would be available
after discharge.
There is some speculation that
the state may kick in more money
than previously anticipated
which could possibly make the

intently to former Knox County District Attorney General Randy
Nichols about plans for a proposed Safety Center during a meeting
this past Friday.
new Safety Center larger than
currently discussed and possibly
turn the new facility into a regional
treatment center.
The small meeting room was
packed with citizens and officials.
Brown said that he will secure the
small conference room for the
next meeting, which is planned
for Friday, February 26th at 1
p.m.
Two committee members
may visit a similar facility in San
Antonio Texas which has been in
operation for 10 years.
“We’re just in the preliminary
stage,” Nichols told the meeting.
Speaking of the plans, growth
and preparation for a bid,
Brown said, “We can adjust it as
needed.”
A Ballot Guide
for Voters
Election roster
contains both
presidential AND
local races
By Focus Staff
With early voting set to begin
this Wednesday, February 10, Knox
County voters will be faced with a
rather lengthy ballot. This year, several local primaries are on the ballot
at the same time as the presidential
primaries. And in the races for president, not only the candidates but also
their delegates are up to be voted on.
This can sometimes create a long and
confusing ballot at the polling places.
In order to help voters navigate these
issues, The Focus is providing some
guidelines to better understand the
upcoming election ballot. Here are a
few important things to remember
when going to the polls:
It’s not just a presidential primary. While Tennessee voters will be
making their choice of presidential
candidates, there are also a number
of very important local races going on
in Knox County. These include: Property Assessor, Law Director, as well
as County Commission and School
Board races in several districts.
Voters need to be aware that these
races all appear near the END of the
ballot, AFTER all the presidential candidates and several pages of delegates. Even if you choose not to vote
on the delegates, It will be important
to page through the entire ballot to
these local races before casting your
vote.
It IS a primary. On both the national and local levels, this is NOT a
general election, but a party primary. That means voters will have to
declare whether they are voting in
the Republican or Democratic Primary when checking in at the polls. Tennessee does not allow “crossover”
voting; therefore, you will only be able
to vote on one party’s slate of candidates. For example, voters wishing to choose between Hillary Clinton and Bernie Sanders will have to
vote in the Democratic Primary, and
will therefore only be able to vote on
local Democratic races. The same is
true on the Republican side.
Don’t be confused by ALL those
delegates. The first thing voters will
see on the ballot is the list of presidential candidates. After that, there
will be a very long list (more than 100
names) of delegates pledged to each
candidate. After casting their vote for
president, voters will be allowed to
select up to 14 of these delegates.
You do not have to vote for delegates
at all. Your vote for president will still
be what determines who wins the
most delegates. The important thing
to remember is that the votes cast for
the CANDIDATES will determine how
Tennessee’s delegates are awarded, and the number each candidate
will send to the convention. Voting for
the individual delegates only helps
determine which SPECIFIC people
get to go to the convention, and NOT
the number each candidate gets to
send.
If you are confused - talk to an official. Do not be intimidated by the
technology or the way the ballot is
laid out on the screen. If the lengthy
ballot on the voting machine is difficult for you to discern, you may still
ask an election official for a paper
ballot. The important thing is that
you vote, and your vote is properly
accounted for.
This is an extremely important
election, both for Knox County and
our nation. Regardless of your party
affiliation or choice of candidates,
we all need to exercise our sacred
right to vote. Early voting begins this
Wednesday, February 10, and Election Day is March 1.

League Hosts School
Board Candidate Forum
By Sally Absher
[email protected]
Last week the League of Women Voters
hosted a forum for contested candidates
seeking election to the Board of Education
in the Knox County March 1 primary election. Early voting begins on February 10.
Jennifer Owen, a former English and
music teacher in Knox County Schools,
and Grant Standefer, executive director for
the non-profit Compassion Coalition are
running for the Second District seat currently held by Traci Sanger. In the Fifth District, Susan Horn, elementary education
coordinator at Christ Covenant Church;
Lori Ann Boudreaux, a former school
counselor; and Buddy Pelot, attorney, are
vying for the seat currently held by Karen
Carson.
Each candidate responded to questions
covering on a range of topics, including:
Disproportionate disciplinary actions for
students of color and disabled. Nearly every
candidate cited the need for cultural competency training. Boudreaux said she
would “look at the numbers and do some
research.” Standefer is aware of cultural
differences through work with his non-
profit. Owen said the board has looked
at cultural competency since 2007, but
so far, nothing has been done. Horn and
Pelot also suggested looking at what has
worked in communities with similar demographics.
Balance between teaching and standardized testing. Owen said, “When I think of
‘balance’ I think ‘equal’ and testing should
only be a very small part of the year— test
prep measures how well a student can
take a test, not what they know.” Horn
agreed, and said the long testing window
for TNReady means students miss out on
valuable classroom learning, and often
take end of course tests well before the
end of the course.
Priorities in working with the funding body.
Building relationships and transparency
was a common theme in working with the
mayor and County Commission. Standefer pointed out that Knox County has just
reached the Tennessee average for public
school funding. (He may not know that
Knox County contributes the 4th highest
amount in local per pupil funding of the
95 counties).

Law Director, Property
Assessor Candidates
meet at LMU
By Mike Steely
[email protected]
Five Republican candidates faced the
public Thursday evening in a forum at the
LMU Duncan School of Law, including
two running for Knox County Law Director and three seeking to become the
Assessor of Property.
In a court-room setting each candidate
spoke briefly before answering questions
in the League of Women Voters forum.
Matt Shafer Powell, news director at
WUOT, read questions from the League
and from the audience.
Law Director Candidates
Candidates for office of Law Director included incumbent Richard (Bud)
Armstrong and attorney Nathan Rowell.
Questions included what each would do
to improve the office, should the director be elected or appointed, challenges
facing the office, and if the office should
be independent of the County Commission.
Armstrong said his office has reduced
the hiring of outside attorneys and lowered the settlement costs. Rowell said
he had more litigation experience and
has worked for various county and city
jurisdictions. At one point Rowell said
that Armstrong’s office had a $50,000
settlement over an inmate case and
had not considered attorney fees in the
settlement which resulted in another
$77,000.
Armstrong explained that the attorney
fees not included because the fees were
negotiated and reduced to $45,000.
Both men responded that the
Law Director should be elected and
not appointed. Armstrong said the
director should represent Knox County

were shocked by the way
she was treated.
Carson responded to a
public forum speaker on
Wednesday, saying that
she had spoken to Gabrielson both before and after
Monday’s meeting and that
as far as she was aware,
Gabrielson did not feel
“beat down, put down, or
disrespected by anything
that I had to say.” Perception is everything.
Also on the board
agenda were a number
of revised Board policies.
One of the policies recently reviewed was BCBI,
“Appeals and Appearances Before the Board.” In the
current version, this policy
also addresses public
forum under “appearing
before the board.” Tracie
Sanger brought forth a
revised policy BCBI, titled
“Complaints and Appeals to
the Board,” and a completely new policy, titled “Public
Forum” which pulled text
regarding appearing before
the board from the original
BCBI policy.
As noted on social media
last week, there was some
confusion among regular
attendees at BOE meetings
who reviewed the revised
policy BCBI, and seeing language about public forum
deleted, incorrectly concluded that the BOE was
eliminating public forum
altogether. Despite efforts
by some board members
to restrict the number
of speakers, or the time
allotted to speak, the new
Public Forum policy maintains almost all of the current public forum procedures.
Slight revisions include
those calling the Board

Secretary to sign up for
public forum are asked to
call by 12:00 noon or speak
to the board vice chair in
person prior to the start of
the meeting. Rountree and
Bounds also expressed
concern about the sentence in the first paragraph
of the new policy: “Meetings may occur, on occasion, when the Chair deems
it in the best interest of the
district to not include Public
Forum.”
The first reading of both
policies was approved.
The board voted to
approve construction contracts for both the Hardin
Valley Middle School and
the Gibbs Middle School
projects. The vote was symbolic only, as the school
system is committed to the
contracts after approval by
county commission at the
end of January.
The board also discussed
the procedure for hiring an
interim Superintendent.
Chairman Harris proposed
a process in a January 28
Memorandum to the Board
in which he stated that Dr.
Tammy Grisson, Executive
Director of the Tennessee
School Board Association,
had “indicated that the
Board could empower the
Board Chair to identify and
talk with potential internal
and external candidates
and make a recommendation to the full Board for a
vote.”
That appeared like too
much of a power grab to
some board members,
however. Both Rountree
and Patti Bounds followed
up with Dr. Grissom, and
learned that “We don’t
keep data on the selection of interim director
of schools. As you know,

Terry Hill brought forth a
draft proposal on Wednesday whereby the entire
board would be available to

the proposed timeline and
the budget process, which
occurs in April, and the
logistics of having all nine
BOE members conducting

at their February 17 midmonth meeting, and then

Director’s legal opinion

6, 2016, was “90% complete.” David Buuck, representing the Law Department said, “This has been

Publisher’s Position
A great day for Gibbs and Hardin Valley
Groundbreaking for new middle schools is Tuesday, February 9
By Steve Hunley,
Publisher
[email protected]
A long-awaited and
anticipated day is about
to come to pass for two
communities in Knox
County, and for the people
of Hardin Valley and Gibbs,
it simply could not be a more
joyous occasion.
Over the past year, the
two communities located
on opposite ends of the
county, had joined forces
in expressing their need for
new middle schools. While
the issues facing Hardin
Valley and Gibbs were
not identical, community
leaders found great common
ground in their desire to
meet the educational
needs of their children. After
months of public meetings
revealed Gibbs and Hardin
Valley middle schools to
be immediate needs, the
two communities came
together and began to ask
the school system to build
these schools.
Last spring, their voices
finally began to be heard.
After weeks of debating,
voting and crunching
numbers, the Knox County
Board of Education entered
into an agreement with the
Knox County Commission
and Mayor Tim Burchett
to construct the two new
middle schools. This
Tuesday groundbreaking
ceremonies will be held
in both Gibbs and Hardin
Valley, and the hopes of
these two communities will
at last be realized.
For Hardin Valley, the
need had become apparent
in recent years for a new
middle school. The Hardin
Valley Academy High School
had been opened in 2008 to
accommodate the growing
number of high school
students in deep west
Knox County. Neighboring
high schools of Karns and
Farragut were running at
capacity and could not
handle the growth facing
the Hardin Valley area.
But it soon became
obvious that a middle
school was needed as well.
It is difficult for a community
to flourish without all the
spokes of the educational
wheel in place - which
includes elementar y,
middle, and high schools.
By 2014 Hardin Valley
Academy had become the
largest high school in Knox
County, but no direct feeder
middle school existed in the
Hardin Valley community.
That’s when community
leaders began to express
their concerns.
For the Gibbs community,
the issues have been
different, and based on
other extenuating factors.
As a result, the fight has
been much longer, and at
times even more frustrating.
Located in northeast Knox
County, Gibbs is a rural
but vibrant and growing
community that for many
years had all the spokes
of the educational wheel
intact. But in 1991, Gibbs
Middle School was closed,
and students from the
Gibbs-Corryton area were
bused to attend Holston
Middle School. For many
Gibbs area students, the
distance was more than
15 miles. This practice of
busing in students from
Gibbs has continued for 25
years despite the fact that
there are two middle schools
within 4 miles of each other
in East Knoxville.
But after years of what
often seemed like a losing
fight, Gibbs community
leaders felt that a new
generation of leadership in
Knox County might at last
be willing to right the wrong.
The Gibbs community came
together and began asking
the School Board and County
Commission to fix this gross
transportation inequity and
give their community the
opportunity to reach its full
potential by returning its
middle school.
School Board Chair Mike
McMillan and Commission
Chair Dave Wright both did
a stellar job in making sure
the voices of these citizens
were heard, and it did not
take long to convince other
representatives that the
right thing to do for Knox
County was to build these
two middle schools. And
so with the help of Mayor
Burchett and his staff, an
agreement was reached,
architects were put to work,
and construction is now set
to begin.
This Tuesday, February 9,
groundbreaking ceremonies
will be held at the sites of
the two new schools. The
ceremony for Gibbs Middle
School will be at 11 a.m.
at the property behind the
current Gibbs Elementary,
and the Hardin Valley
groundbreaking will take
place at 1 p.m. behind
Hardin Valley Academy. The
public is both invited and
encouraged to attend. Since
school will be in session, to
alleviate parking, shuttle
service will be provided to
the Gibbs groundbreaking
from the Gibbs Ruritan Park,
located just .3 miles away.
Those wishing to attend are
reminded to dress warmly,
because these ceremonies
will be held outdoors.
Last October the Gibbs
community gathered for a
celebration cookout under
a tent near the building site
for the new middle school.
Emcee Richie Beeler
welcomed the large crowd
with the declaration, “It’s
a great day for the Gibbs
community.” The crowd
responded with cheers of
joy. It is always a great day
when right prevails. Now
another great day has come,
and those cheers can echo
across an entire county.
All the way from Gibbs to
Hardin Valley.
Funding and Need for Farragut Business Alliance questioned
By Focus Staff
This coming Thursday,
February 11th, the Farragut Board of Mayor and
Aldermen (BOMA) will have
a town board meeting that
may change the future of
the town of Farragut in a
very serious way. The local
business group the Farragut
Business Alliance (FBA) will
present a proposed Memo
of Understanding (MOU) to
the BOMA to change its mission from a local business
alliance to the economic
development branch of Farragut. This was the idea of
Town Administrator David
Smoak. In the January 25th
meeting of the FBA Board
Mr. Smoak told how the
town needed to hire an economic development director but there was no space
left in the Town Hall. So he
had the idea to ask the FBA
to take the job as a subcontractor to save money for
the town.
In that meeting Mike
Mitchell, a local resident and
member of Farragut Citizens
for Responsible Growth and
Development (FCRGD), told
the Board of the FBA that
their group should not get
involved in contentious and
combative zoning matters
like they did with the Smith
Road apartments because
they accept monetary grants
and, in Mithcell’s opinion, it
was a conflict of interest.
The President of the FBA,
David Purvis, said they are a
501 C 6 and they can lobby
the town on any matter and
it was part of their mission
statement to include this
kind of lobbying. The FBA
voted and approved the
$600,000 no bid MOU with
the Town of Farragut with
$200,000 to be paid out
each year for three years.
Voting on the FBA Board
was Town Mayor Ralph
McGill and newly appointed
Alderman Louise Povlin. Mr.
Mitchell asked both McGill
and Povlin to recuse themselves when the BOMA considered the matter because
of a “conflict of interest.”
Town Administrator David
Smoak said they did not
have to recuse but offered
no reason why.
Last week on February
3rd the Farragut Economic Development Committee
(EDC) met to vote on the FBA
MOU with the town. There
were eight board members
present along with FBA
President David Purvis and
FBA Executive Director Allison Sousa. In the audience
was an unidentified FBA
board member, members
of the press, and residents
Mike Mitchell, Bob Hill and
one other unidentified resident. Mr. Hill was the Chair
of the Farragut Municipal
Planning Commission for
over 27 years. Mr. Purvis
explained the history of
how the MOU came to be
and outlined what the FBA
would do as the economic
development branch of the
town. Farragut Alderman
and EDC member Ron Pinchok explained to Mr. Purvis
and Ms. Sousa he could not
support the MOU as written because in the mission
statement it still contained
the right to take town tax
money and then lobby the
town on zoning and policy
issues. Mr. Mitchell agreed
and said it would take away
the value of his vote for
Mayor and the two Aldermen
he elects. Mr. Mitchell said
it would make the FBA an
unelected and unaccountable branch of the town government. Mr. Hill spoke and
strongly objected to the FBA
taking $600,000 of town tax
monies and that they should
get their money from dues
from their members.
According to Mitchell, in
the ensuing discussion some
remarkable and surprising
statements were made by
FBA Executive Director Allison Sousa. In responding
to Alderman Ron Pinchok
and FCRGD representative
Mike Mitchell she said the
FBA did not have members,
they had participants, they
paid no dues, and the Board
of Directors was not elected
by the FBA participants. It
was actually a committee of
eleven people who are not
elected by anyone. The FBA
membership roster of 290
businesses came from the
phone book and the Farragut Business Licenses.
In an interview with The
Knoxville Focus, Mike Mitchell said, “It turns out the Farragut Business Alliance is
an illusion. It is a website
listing businesses in Farragut many of whom were
never contacted by the FBA.
It is incredible that our Town
Administrator could consider doing a no bid contract
with a committee of eleven
people who have no experience in economic development and demand the
right to lobby the town with
our town tax money. In the
Board of Mayor and Alderman meeting next Thursday Mr. Smoak has a lot of
explaining to do. As does our
Mayor Ralph McGill and new
Alderman Louise Povlin. We
need answers and we need
them now.”
After some discussion a
motion was made and properly seconded. There was a
brief discussion, one EDC
member said she needed
more time. It was too much
information to digest in
one meeting. FBA President David Purvis refused
saying this was going to the
BOMA next week. Not said
was that they were skipping the BOMA workshop
that normally happens for
such a large expenditure. Is
that a procedural violation
of the BOMA? Alderman
Ron Pinchok again said he
could not support the MOU
with the political advocacy
statement remaining in the
mission statement. Then
the EDC voted, one No, four
Abstentions, and three Yes.
Then both Town Administrator David Smoak and Assistant Town Administrator
Gary Palmer said the MOU
motion passed. According
to Mitchell, Robert’s Rules
says, “An abstention may,
however, have the practical
effect of a ‘no’ vote since a
motion may fail for lack of

eight EDC board members

Yes votes. The motion failed
but was counted as a pass.
According to Mitchell, this is
the second time in less than
three weeks Town Administrator David Smoak has not
followed Robert’s Rules of

the FBA. The first, he said,

Louise Povlin to the BOMA

McGill asked Smoak how to
proceed with voting. Smoak
said vote for the first candidate nominated which was
Ms. Povlin. That is not correct to Robert’s Rules. All
candidates nominated had
to be voted for at the same
time with the low vote candidate rolling off until one
candidate had a majority.
“Smoak’s preference for
the FBA over the rules is
troubling and a concern to
residents,” Mitchell told The
Focus.
Mitchell continued to say,
“Thirty-six years ago the
town of Farragut was born
in a revolt against the Knox
County Court, the predecessor to the Knox County
Commission. This Thursday
there may be a revolution
against an unelected business committee that seeks
control of the town government.”

Hardin Valley
Academy APUSH
Class Seeks Tickets to
see ‘Hamilton’
Students in Ms. Guy’s AP U.S.
History (APUSH) class at Hardin
Valley Academy (HVA) are undertaking an ambitious project that
illustrates how students in Knox
County Schools are encouraged
to “think and learn outside the
box.”
The Focus was contacted by
Gabby Swenson, a student in one
of Ms. Guy’s two APUSH classes. She and several of her classmates explained that discussions
during class frequently reference
the musical “Hamilton,” currently
playing in New York. “Hamilton” is
a musical about the life of Founding Father Alexander Hamilton.
In addition to the historical
perspective, the students have
become enthralled with the musical, and its creation. The musical is performed by an inclusive
cast including primarily people of
color. The music is rap and hiphop, providing a unique twist on
the story of our nation’s creation
and providing a “once in a lifetime learning experience.”
They learned that the Rockefeller Center was given a grant
to provide tickets for Title 1
schools in New York, and originally hoped they might be given a
waiver to qualify for tickets under
the grant. That didn’t work out, as
HVA is neither a Title 1 school,
nor located in New York.
The ticket cost is the biggest
obstacle - ticket prices range from
$500 to more than $1300.Undeterred, Swenson and classmates
Maggie Olson, Dominique Rios,
and Kendall Shanks are exploring
fundraising opportunities so they
can travel to New York in May to
see the show.
They located a block of 20
tickets through Ticket Master for
$8000. There are over 40 students in the two APUSH classes,
so tickets would be available on
a first come basis. Swenson said
they hope fundraising will cover
the cost of the tickets and lodging for two nights, which will total
about $12,000 for 20 students.
The students would provide
the cost of travel (approximately $300 each) and meals. They
also plan to visit the Alexander
Hamilton home in Manhattan.
The four students have begun
talking with local business
owners to solicit sponsorships
and donations. Shanks said they
are planning to partner with a
local fast food restaurant willing
to donate a portion of the revenue from one evening. Each student who attends the musical
will complete a project about the
American Revolution and Hamilton’s involvement, and how
these events helped our country
become what it is today.
Ms. Guy told us, “I am blessed
with an extraordinary group of
students this semester. They are
focused, motivated, and willing to
go above and beyond to enhance
their learning. It is an honor to
have the opportunity to teach
them in class.
She adds that she has had
very little to do with the actual
planning of this endeavor. She
said she has “given advice when
asked, but the entire movement
is student-led, which makes it so
extraordinary.”
Interested businesses and
individuals may contact the students at [email protected]
com. If they are successful in
their fundraising, Ms. Guy and
several other HVA staff will chaperone the trip.
The student have also set up a
gofundme account (https://www.
gofundme.com/getustohamilton
) for members of the community
who would like to make a donation. The students said any funds
raised above the $12,000 will be
donated to charity.

government and taxpayers
and not individual elected
officials. Rowell agreed but
said one agency should not
be against another.
Asked about challenges
Rowell said the Law Director
person should “simply be
doing the job.” Armstrong
said the office “has no
enforcement powers” and
the position should advise
in a way that is “clear and
can be understood.”
Armstrong said the Law
Director has 500 clients, a
$2 million budget, and his
office councils with each
department’s attorneys.
Rowell said the Law Director
should take “a more active
role in litigation.”
In closing Rowell said he
has 20 years of litigation
experience and asked
voters to look at his resume
and vote for him.
Armstrong said the
office is “one of the most
important positions in
Knox County” and that 20
years of litigation doesn’t
qualify someone to be Law
Director.
Assessor of
Property
Candidates
With no incumbent

Assessor
because of term limits the
three candidates, Andrew
Graybeal, Jim Weaver, and
John Whitehead answered
several questions in their
appearance.
Questions included the
fairness of appraisals,
current staffing levels,
what technical advances
might be made and the
most effective way to run
the office.
Graybeal charged that
the property assessor’s
office has for the last 8
years made mistakes and
the atmosphere there is too
political. Both Weaver, the
current chief deputy in the
office, and Whitehead, a
former Property Assessor,
spoke of their experience.
Weaver said that with the
2017 appraisals coming
the office would make at
least one visit to every
property and be in the
field every day. Whitehead
said that appraisals are
“an ongoing process” and
agreed with Weaver on
several matters.
Whitehead said there
“probably would be some
turnovers” of employees at
the office if he is elected.
Graybeal said he “did
not intend to get rid of
employees” and Weaver
said he would sit down with
each of the 47 employees
if elected to talk about their
positions.
When asked about
technological advances in
the property assessor’s
office, Graybeal said that
“the current system doesn’t
work” and if necessary
he would go to county
commission because “we
may have to spend some
money.”
Weaver said the property
assessor’s office does
work well and that the state
gives it a 96% approval
rating. Whitehead referred
to changes in 2012 with
a new system which he
said “had some errors” but
added that those mistakes
were fixed.
Graybeal charged that
the IRS is talking with some
of the employees in the
office although he did not
explain the statement.
Weaver said the office
complies with the state,
which mandates fair
evaluations of property and
Whitehead agreed that the
state required guidelines
are met.
Graybeal said the
property assessor’s office
“is overlooked” and said the
office hasn’t had “a fresh
set of eyes in 30 years.
Weaver said the office is
“100% transparent.”
“I’m not a politician, just
a person who serves and
enjoys people,” Weaver
said.
Whitehead said that
equitability makes property
taxes fair.
None of the candidates
face Democratic opposition.
The first day of early voting
starts Wednesday and
ends February 23rd.

Historical local companies
By Mike Steely
[email protected]
Knox County and East
Tennessee have seen some
very successful companies over
the 225 years since statehood.
Firms that grew and prospered,
like Kern’s Bread, Mountain Dew,
Sterchi’s, White Lily, and many
more. These companies have
disappeared and some have reemerged as brands produced by
other firms.
But there are some companies
that are historic icons within the
region that continue to thrive and
many of us don’t realize how old
the firms are or how they were
created.
For instance, Mayo Garden
Center was founded in 1879 on
Gay Street and now has three
locations in Knoxville.
Tindell Building Supply was
founded in 1907 as a saw mill
and now has locations on Norris
Highway, Morristown, Maryville,
LaFollette and Sevierville.
Rose Mortuary is more than
130 years old and has two locations in Knoxville.
Bush Brothers began in 1904
and has grown to be a national brand with its various bean
products. While its visitor center
is located in Chestnut Hill near
Newport its corporate headquarters is in Knoxville. Since 1994
the company’s national television ads featuring Jay Bush have
become successful.

Therapeutic Foster Parents Needed
By Mike Steely
[email protected]
Want to become a foster
parent to a child in need?
Often children are removed
from their homes because
of abuse or neglect. Omni
Visions of Knoxville is
looking for special caring
people who will open their
homes to these children.
Serenity J. Andrews is
the Recruitment Specialist
for the company, located
at 4709 Papermill Drive,
Suite 103, and said, “We
are always in need of foster
parents.”
“We’re looking for families
with a heart for teenagers,”
said Rebecca Horton,
Recruitment Team Leader.
Horton said that Omni

the Department of Children’s
Services and that Omni
Visions places children of all
ages, even fragile infants,
with caring families.
The company maintains
a list of 180 foster families
that have been screened
and approved for the care
of children and the children
may stay anywhere from a
few months to a few years
with the families. Families
are reimbursed for the cost
of caring for the children.
“Many children end up in
foster care through no fault
of their own, often because
of what their parents have
done,” Andrews said,
adding, “Teens are the
hardest to place simply
because of their age, which
is unfortunate because
they are at a critical stage
of life when often a family is
needed more than ever.”
Omni Visions recruits
foster parents, runs
background checks and
has no-cost training for
each family in the care of
children. The program also
has a resource coordinator
that works with foster
parents and the children,
touching base each week.
Prospective foster parents
must be at least 25 years old,
pass a background check,
have positive references,
complete a home study
and safety checklist, be in
good health, have stable
finances, provide adequate
living space, and be an
active participant in the
child’s treatment.

Coordinators par tner

support services such as
counseling, mentoring,
tutoring, and respite.

each day the child lives in
the home and the Omni

“They
are
our
responsibility,” Horton
says of the children in the
Elect
program.
“The child’s opinion is very
much part of the process,”
she said about matching a
family with a child.
One of the hardest
group of children to place
in caring foster homes are
sibling groups of two, three,
four or more; brothers and
sisters who don’t want to be
separated.
Omni Visions also
does adoptions and their
programs cover Tennessee,

Working with the Board
of Zoning Appeals
By Mike Steely
[email protected]
Although Knox County
and the City of Knoxville
share the Metropolitan
Planning Commission for
zoning decisions each
jurisdiction has its own
Board of Zoning Appeals.
Both boards consist of
citizens named to those
groups and all of the
appointees serve with no
salary.
The board, or BZA,
hears appeals by citizens
on various zoning issues
such as setback of homes
and buildings, width of
driveways, curb cuts,
parking spaces, and size
and number of signs.
The two BZAs also hear
many other appeals and
requests.
Any citizen, not just the
owner or builder, can appeal
planning commission
decisions. Some appeals
go to the Knoxville City
Council or the Knox County
Commission, depending
on the location of the
property. Some decisions
can be appealed to the
Board of Zoning Appeals.
All appeals must be filed
within 15 days of an MPC
decision.
If an appeal is denied
by the jurisdictions or the
boards of zoning appeals
the applicant must wait
one year before filing
again.
Recently the most
decisions being appealed
involve setbacks from
city or county streets and
the number and size of
parking spaces allowed at
buildings.
The Knoxville Board of
Zoning Appeals is made up
of Don Horton, Chairman,
and members Barbara
Clark, Kristin Grove, Daniel
Odle and Charlies Van
Beke. It meets the third
Thursday of each month in
the small assembly room
of the City-County Building
at 4 p.m. The telephone
number is (865)2352988. Approvals or denials
require a vote of three of
the five members.
The Knox County Board
of Zoning Appeals consists
of Chairman Marcus Chady,
vice chairman Carson
Dailey, Bill Sewell, Cynthia
Stansil, Ron Rochelle, Cindy
Buttry, Kevin Murphy and
Dennis Sewell. The board
meets the 4th Wednesday
of each month at 1:30 in
the main assembly room
of the City-County Building.
The telephone number is
(865)215-2325.
A vote of 5 of the 9
members is required
to approve or deny an
appeal.
While members of
the boards cannot
communicate public
business outside the
meetings, member s
of the public are not
prohibited from contacting
members although such
communications are
“discouraged.” February 8, 2016

John W. Bricker of Ohio
Pages from the Past
By Ray Hill
[email protected]
Few politicians have a
career as successful as that
of John William Bricker of
Ohio; state attorney general
(an elected position in
Ohio), three times governor
and twice United States
senator.
Bricker came from very
humble beginnings, born on
September 6, 1893, along
with a twin sister, in Madison
County, Ohio. Handsome
and athletic, John Bricker
was quite popular in high
school, but concentrated
on his studies and his first
love, baseball. Bricker went
on to Ohio State University
where he participated in
the debate team when not
playing varsity baseball.
Bricker was good enough
to attract offers to play
semi-professional baseball,
but opted instead to study
law. John Bricker’s legal
studies were interrupted
by the World War. Bricker
desperately tried to enlist,
but was rejected for service
due to a heart murmur.
Undaunted, John Bricker
tried to enlist in every
branch of the service and
was rejected by each in turn.
Frustrated, Bricker finally
managed to get himself
admitted in the Chaplain’s
service with the condition
he could not preach, but the
war ended before he could
be sent overseas. Bricker
returned to his studies and
began practicing law in
Columbus, Ohio in 1920.
By 1923, John W. Bricker
had been hired as an
assistant state attorney
general, traveling the
length and breadth of Ohio
trying cases. Quite likable,
personable, and friendly,
John Bricker made friends
everywhere he went. Bricker
was a member of the Ohio
Public Service Commission
from 1929 – 1932. John
W. Bricker picked one of
the worst years in history
to make his electoral
debut. He ran for state
attorney general in 1932,
a year when Republicans
were being blamed for the
Great Depression. Franklin
D. Roosevelt and the
Democrats swept across
the nation like a tidal wave.
John W. Bricker was the
only Republican to win a
statewide office in Ohio
that year.
In 1936, Bricker was the
logical and most popular
candidate available to the
GOP to run for governor of
Ohio. If anything, 1936
was a worse year for
Republicans than 1932
had been and Bricker lost,
albeit narrowly. Bricker
never stopped campaigning
and ran again in 1938.
Incumbent governor Martin
Davey had become a highly
controversial figure and
his administration was
bedeviled by scandal and
corruption. Davey lost
the Democratic primary
to businessman Charles
Sawyer, who lost to
Bricker.
1938 was a good year
for Republicans in Ohio;
not only had John W. Bricker
been elected governor, but
Robert A. Taft, son of the
late president and Chief
Justice of the U. S. Supreme
Court, William Howard Taft,
had ousted an incumbent
Democrat from the United
States Senate.
Governor
B r i c ke r
immediately set out to
balance Ohio’s fiscal house.
When he came into office,
Ohio was afloat in red ink;
by the time he left office,
Ohio had a surplus of some
$70 million (almost a billion
dollars in today’s currency).
Bricker’s budget cutting
was not universally popular
and the governor was
challenged in 1940 by his
predecessor, Martin Davey.
Once again, Bricker was the
beneficiary not only of his
own personal popularity,
but a brutal fight inside
the Democratic Party. Two
former governors fought
bitterly over the nomination.
Martin Davey and George
White battered one another
mercilessly, a fight which
Davey ultimately won, but
it was a pyrrhic victory, as
he lost the general election
badly to Governor Bricker.
Bricker sought a third
two-year term in 1942
and faced Democrat John
Sweeney, who lost by almost
400,000 votes.
In 1944, Bricker was
interested in seeking the
Republican nomination for
the presidency. He was
hardly the only Ohioan with
presidential ambitions. Bob
Taft had been in the Senate
only two years when he
sought the GOP nomination
in 1940, but the senator
was up for reelection that
year, a campaign he would
win only narrowly. Bricker’s
chief opponent for the
GOP nomination was a
fellow governor, Thomas E.
Dewey of New York. Dewey
was as imperious and
cold personally as Bricker
was friendly and down-toearth. The New Yorker had
pledged when first elected
governor in 1942 that he
would serve out his term
and ran an aggressive noncampaign for the Republican
presidential nomination.
The 1940 GOP candidate
Wendell Willkie wanted
another chance and entered
the Wisconsin primary and
made an intensive speaking
tour of the state. His hopes
were shattered when he
lost badly to non-candidate
Dewey. By the time the
GOP convention convened
in Chicago, John W. Bricker
was the chief opposition to
the man the tart-tongued
Alice Roosevelt Longworth
once dismissed as looking
like the little man on the
wedding cake. Governor
Bricker soon concluded
he did not have enough
delegate strength to beat
Dewey for the nomination
and withdrew before the
balloting. When Bricker
made his speech before the
convention, the delegates
rose in tribute and many
observers felt it was the only
heartfelt demonstration of
the entire convention, far
more tumultuous than that
given Governor Dewey.
Thomas Dewey had

Earl Warren as his running
mate, but the Californian
refused. Dewey tapped
Bricker as his running mate
and the two waged a game
campaign against Franklin
Roosevelt and Harry Truman.
The Republicans lost, but
the Dewey – Bricker ticket
made the best showing of
any Republican duo since
FDR had first been elected
in 1932. The GOP carried
Ohio, while Dewey lost his
home state to Roosevelt (it
was FDR’s home state as
well). Dewey and Bricker
had made a race of it and
when he knew he had won,
President Roosevelt had
been resentful of Dewey,
grumbling, “I still think he’s
a son-of-a-bitch.”
Bricker returned to
Columbus and formed
Bricker and Eckler, one of the
most successful law firms
in Ohio and the Midwest.
Yet, politics was still much
on his mind and he was
the strongest candidate
the Republicans could field
against Senator James W.
Huffman in 1946. Huffman
had been appointed to the
U. S. Senate when Harold H.
Burton, a Republican, had
been appointed to the U. S.
Supreme Court by President
Truman in 1945.
Huffman was the sonin-law of popular former
governor and U. S. senator
Vic Donahey, but had lost the
Democratic primary in his
lone statewide campaign.
Senator Huffman was
no match for the popular
Bricker.
John
W.
B ric ker
overwhelmed Senator
Huffman, winning 57% of
the vote in a big Republican
year.
Just months after coming
to Washington, Bricker
experienced the most
harrowing episode of his
political life. While walking
in the underground tunnels
connecting the Senate
Office Building to the
Capitol, a deranged man
who was a former policeman
at the Capitol and somehow
blamed Bricker for his
financial losses, fired off
several shots at the senator.
Bricker had the presence of
mind to duck into one of the
Senate subway cars and
was whisked away while the
gunman was disarmed and
arrested.
Bricker joined Robert Taft
in the United States Senate.
Senator Bricker would aid
his colleague’s presidential
aspirations in the 1948
and 1952 Republican
conventions. It was Bricker
who would appear before
the delegates to assuage
hurt feelings and move the
choice of the convention be
made unanimous in Taft’s
losing bids. The 1952
convention was especially
sad for many, as everyone
knew it was the last
presidential campaign Bob
Taft would wage. A year
later, Taft would be dead.
Following the death of
Robert A. Taft in 1953, John
Bricker became the premier
Republican officeholder in
the State of Ohio. The two
men had been completely
different, both in physical
appearance,
style,
and substance. Taft’s
personality was in marked
contrast to that of John W.
Bricker. Taft was austere
and frequently off-putting,
while Bricker was accessible
and personable. Both were
conservative, but Bob Taft
was recognized for his
intellect, while Bricker was
oftentimes derided for being
anything but intellectual.
Taft was somewhat dumpy
and balding, while Bricker
was tall, handsome and
possessed a head of hair
that began to turn white.
John Bricker looked like a
statesman.
Handily reelected in
1952 while Taft’s brother,
Charles, was losing the
gubernatorial election,
John W. Bricker would finally
serve with a Republican
president with the election
of Dwight D. Eisenhower.
Yet, Bricker’s relations with
Eisenhower would not be
what either man hoped
they would be. If he is
remembered today, it is for
the proposed amendment
to the U. S. Constitution that
bears his name: the Bricker
Amendment.
Senator John W. Bricker
introduced an amendment,
in essence, that would
have restricted executive
authority in making treaties
and issuing executive
agreements made by the
president. Not surprisingly,
President Eisenhower was
profoundly opposed to the
adoption of the Bricker
Amendment.
Senator
B r i c ke r ’s
amendment had the
strong support of most
of his own party and not
a few Democrats. The
Eisenhower administration
had to use every resource
at its disposal to fight off
the Bricker Amendment.
President Eisenhower
was caught in a difficult
position, as his own State
Department was fiercely
opposed to the concept of
the Bricker Amendment,
while most Republican
senators supported the
idea. In fact, as originally
prop o s e d,
Bricker’s
amendment had broad
bipartisan support in the
United States Senate.
President Eisenhower
was forced to look to
Senate Democrats to
block the passage of the
Bricker Amendment. He
found a willing ally in the
most powerful Democrat
inside the Senate, one with
presidential ambitions of his
own: Lyndon B. Johnson of
Texas. Author Robert Caro,
the best of Lyndon Johnson’s
many biographers, wrote,
“Defeating the amendment
and thereby preserving the
power of the presidency
- - - his first objective
(Eisenhower’s) - - - could not
be accomplished even if he
united his party’s liberal and
moderate senators against
it; there simply were not
enough of them.”
Eisenhower argued the
Bricker Amendment would
fatally dilute the power
of the president to make
American foreign policy.
Senators tried to reach a
compromise with language
that would appease both
President Eisenhower and
Senator Bricker. It was an
impossible task. Lyndon
Johnson nudged perhaps
the most respected
Democrat in the Senate,
Walter F. George of Georgia,
to introduce a substitute
intended to kill Bricker’s
proposal. Senator Bricker
was livid, knowing full well
that Walter George also
supported the idea of
limiting presidential treaty
making powers.
With his usual political
shrewdness, LBJ had picked
PAGE B3
the perfect opponent to stall
John Bricker’s proposal.
George had survived a purge
attempt to remove him from
the Senate by no less than
Franklin Roosevelt; George
had also served as the
highly respected Chairman
of the Senate’s Finance
and Foreign Relations
Committees.
George
was also the most senior
member of the Senate at
the time and was revered
by many of the Senate’s
members.
President Eisenhower
tried to prevent a vote on
the Bricker Amendment, as
both sides knew it would be
close. Nobody was better
at counting votes than the
wily Texan and LBJ held
several cards up his welltailored sleeve. To pass,
the Bricker Amendment
needed two-thirds approval
and when the vote finally
came, it lost by a single
vote. LBJ had summoned
the mortally ill Harley M.
Kilgore of West Virginia to
the Senate Chamber to cast
the deciding vote.
It was the greatest
disappointment of John
W. Bricker’s political life.
Toward the end of his
long life, Bricker snapped,
“Ike did it! He killed my
amendment.”
While cer tainly a
conservative, Bricker was
viewed by many as an ultraconservative following his
spat with Eisenhower.
Senator Bricker ran for a
third term in 1958 and
was expected to win
easily, especially as his
opponent was sixty-nine
year old Stephen Young,
who despite having been
elected to Congress several
times was considered to be
something of a perennial
candidate for public office.
Bricker likely would have
survived an election that
saw the Republicans lose
thirteen seats in the United
States Senate had not his
supporters insisted upon
placing a Right-To-Work
referendum on the ballot in
Ohio. The unions came to
life and energized members
who may very well not have
voted otherwise. Bricker,
recognizing the danger,
begged his friends not to
place the referendum on
the ballot. His pleas fell
on deaf years and he lost
narrowly.
Bricker returned to
Columbus with his wife,
Harriet, and resumed his
law practice. The former
senator enjoyed a leisurely
life with an excellent income
and he spent a great deal
of time in his magnificent
library at his home. He
and Harriet were especially
close and together they had
adopted a son, Jack.
John Bricker continued to
be a presence inside Ohio’s
Republican Party. Despite
his seventy-one years,
many urged him to run for
the Senate again in 1964,
but Bricker decided against
it. When President Ronald
Reagan came to Ohio to
campaign for reelection
in 1984, ninety-year old
John W. Bricker sat on
the platform. His beloved
Harriet died and Bricker’s
health began to deteriorate.
Bricker’s son moved him to
an assisted living facility
where friends and former
employees would visit the
former senator. Bricker
enjoyed sitting outside
his room to smoke an
occasional cigar and chat.
Turned down for military
service during World War I,
John William Bricker died
on March 22, 1986 at age
ninety-two.

Due to the vast amount of phone calls and emails I
received this week, I would like to discuss a single piece
of legislation with you all. This
Thursday, February 4th, an
important piece of legislation
was passed on the house floor.
I know a lot of you have concerns with regards to SJR0067,
so I would like to explain it to
you.
SJR0067 is a call for a convention of the states to propose amendments to the
From State
constitution regarding fiscal
Representative constraints on the federal government, limit the federal govHarry Brooks
ernment’s power, and impose
term limits for members of
Congress. The states’ authority for this power resides
in Article V of the U.S. Constitution. This authority was
given to us by our founding fathers unanimously in 1787.
The House sponsor of SJR0067, Representative Sheila
Butt, made the point clear that SJR0067 is about states’
rights and “showing the federal government the concerns we as states have.” In order for a convention of
the states to happen, 34 states (2/3) would have to pass
legislation like SJR0067 with the same language used
in our bill. It is very important that the states that want
this to happen have the identical call. We just became
the fifth state to pass this identical call. I have received
calls from both sides, advocates and oppositions, to
this bill. A lot of people have said they are opposed to
a convention of the states because it may be a gateway to change many of our values that the Constitution
upholds. This question surrounded the House floor on
February the 4th, and Representative Sheila Butt had
many things to say. The fact is that many states, including Tennessee, are passing faithful delegate legislation
that requires their delegate to only discuss what is in this
call. In Tennessee, our delegate can be recalled back
and charged with a felony if they were to vote on anything other than the three things in this call. Moreover,
once the convention proposes an amendment, it would
take 38 states to agree on, leaving a large threshold of
13 states to disagree.
I feel as if we have a lot of safeguards with this bill and
our concerns need to be dealt with. Our national debt
has become so large that it is beginning to threaten the
financial well-being of all governments and individual
citizens. If the debt continues to grow at the current
rate, it is my belief we will reach a tipping point leading
to a catastrophe.
If you would like more information on SJR0067, you
can visit www.conventionofstates.com. This is a project
group that advocates for the convention of states.

Brad Taylor named football coach at Karns
By Ken Lay
Brad Taylor is once
again a head football
coach in Knox County. He
was tapped by Karns High
School and replaces Tobi
Kilgore, who resigned in January to pursue administrative opportunities.
He spent last year as an
assistant coach at SouthDoyle after taking the 2014
season away from the game.
Prior to his brief stint with
the Cherokees, Taylor was
the head coach at Bearden
High School. He led the Bulldogs from 2007-2013.
He resigned from his
alma mater following the
2013 campaign after a successful tenure with the Bulldogs.
“I got a chance to recharge
my batteries and I’m excited about this opportunity,”
said Taylor, who graduated
from Bearden in 1994 and
currently teaches at SouthDoyle. “The biggest things
about this are that the job
is in Knox County and my
family and I have always
been here. It’s local so we
don’t have to pack up and
move somewhere.
“The other thing is that
when I met with the administration, we were all on the
same page and they made
me feel welcome. I felt like
they wanted me here. I’m
looking forward to meeting
these young men.”
Taylor said that’s he’s
hoping to land a teaching
job at Karns. Those details,
however, have yet to be
worked out.
“The administration is
working with me on that,”
he said. “I would like to be
in the building at Karns. We
have some coaches here
who are in the building and
anytime you have coaches
in the building, that’s a good
thing.”
Taylor said that he’ll look
to retain at least some of
the current assistants with
the Beavers.
He will coach his first
game against his alma
mater and one-time employer when Karns tangles with
the Bulldogs on Aug. 19.
“That makes this kind of
neat for me,” Taylor said
of the looming showdown
against the Bulldogs. “We’re
going to go out there and
play and represent Karns
the best we can.
“We’re going to do the
best we can and we’re going
to look to get better every
week. We’re going to continue to work hard. That
game will be exciting for
my guys because it will be
the first game [of the 2016
season].”
Central survives turnovers, Vols happy with
scare from Dragons 57-53 Class of 2016
By Alex Norman
By Ken Lay
Central High School’s boys basketball team had to survive a bit of a
scare at home early last week.
The Bobcats overcame a slow
start to claim a 57-53 District 3-AAA
victory over Clinton Tuesday night at
Central High.
“We had over 20 turnovers tonight
and it’s been a long time since we’ve
had a game with more than 20 turnovers,” Central coach Jon Higgins
said. “But you have to credit Clinton
because they scrapped.
“They played hard tonight and they
did some good things.”
The Dragons (13-10 overall, 4-8
in District 3-AAA) held the upper
hand early as the Bobcats (19-7,
11-3) were plagued by early turnovers. Central didn’t convert its first
field goal until late in the opening
stanza. Trey Mitchell gave the Bobcats a 7-3 lead with 1 minute, 27
seconds remaining in the first quarter when he scored, was fouled and
buried the subsequent free throw.
Prior to Mitchell’s basket, Central got
its only offensive production from
the foul line. Markess Underwood
made 2-of-4 from the free throw line
and Quez Johnson knotted the contest at 3-3 with a pair of foul shots
with 2:15 remaining in the opening
frame.
After Mitchell gave the Bobcats a
four-point lead, the Dragons scored
the last five points of the first quarter to take a slim 8-7 lead,
Clinton pulled out to a 12-7 advantage when Trevan Hill scored a
basket with 7:19 remaining in the
second stanza.
Central began to take better care
of the ball in the second quarter and
Bobcats saw their shots begin to fall

a little more frequently.
Johnson scored seven of his 13
points in the second stanza and
helped Central open a 26-21 lead
by halftime.
The Bobcats went up 31-25 when
Mitchell nailed a 3-point shot midway
through the third quarter.
Clinton chipped away and pulled
to within 37-35 on a basket by Tyler
Thackerson. Thackerson scored 11
points in the game despite being
held scoreless in the first half.
He and Daraon Jones kept the
Dragons within striking distance
late. Thackerson scored six points
over the final eight minutes and

All coaches say that they are happy with their recruiting classes on National Signing Day. Heck, Derek Dooley
put a rose on that Class of 2012 that didn’t have one
offensive lineman in the bunch. Not one!
But Tennessee coach Butch Jones actually does have
good reason for positivity. Jones and the Vols coaching staff closed with a flurry, getting 4 star athlete
Tyler Byrd, 5 star safety Nigel Warrior, 4 star receiver
Latrell Williams and 5 star defensive lineman Jonathan
Kongbo to round out Tennessee’s Class of 2016.
“This is a culmination of one to two to three years
of hard work by a lot of individuals involved in this process,” said Jones. “It is really about relationships. We
are in a relationship business. It is earning that trust
over time. Our coaches did a great job with that.”
When the dust settles, Tennessee is likely to finish
with a national ranking around 15 for this class. And
while the class won’t match the previous two classes
in terms of stature, they have continued to build depth
with mostly 4 and 5 star athletes across the board. It’s
a group of 23, including a couple of walk-ons.
“We had some very specific needs in our program
this year,” said Jones. “We thought we needed to bring
in as much speed and athleticism as we could, bring
in players that can play multiple positions and give us
flexibility whether it’s on the offensive side of the ball,
defensive side of the ball or special teams. You can
never have enough team speed as we have all come
to know in this conference. That lends itself to playing
well in terms of your special teams.”
In the past, part of the recruiting pitch was the opportunity to play right away. Look no further than what
defensive end Derek Barnett and running back Jalen
Hurd were able to accomplish during their freshman and
sophomore seasons. But even with the absurd amount
of returning talent on the roster, Jones hasn’t given up
that part of the discussion with recruits.
“If you sit in a living room of a young man and you
promise him that he’s going to start, or you promise him
playing time right away, I think that’s unfair to that individual because of the growth and development that it
takes,” said Jones. “You never know. Each young man
develops differently at their own pace, but what we
still can promise is the opportunity to play early. I think
we’ve proven that within our football program. Everyone’s always going to have that opportunity for playing

By Ken Lay
Powell High School baseball player
Noah Malicoat will continue his career
in college.
He made it official Wednesday when
he signed a National Letter of Intent to
attend Johnson University in a ceremony
in the Powell High School auditorium.
“I love the atmosphere there and I
love the fact that it’s a Christian-based
university,” said Malicoat, who will soon
begin his senior season with the Panthers. “Johnson was the best fit for me
and I felt like God was leading me there
and I wanted to stay close to home.”
Malicoat pitches and plays first base
at Powell, where he has helped the Panthers win back-to-back District 3-AAA
Tournament Championships. The opportunity to move on to Johnson University
February 8, 2016
will give him a chance to continue as
both a position player and a pitcher.
“I will play both [positions] there,” he
said.
Malicoat also noted that the fact that
Johnson University was a small school
also appealed to him.
“I loved the fact that Johnson is a
small school,” he said. “I wanted to go
somewhere where I could get a quality education and not just be another
number.
“The campus was beautiful and I liked
going there. The [baseball] coach and
the admissions clerk said that the professors there would sometimes get your
personal information, like your phone
number and your e-mail address and
they will contact you if you miss class.”

and 3 star tight end Austin
Pope (from nearby Christian Academy of Knoxville)
from the Volunteer state.
Succeeding outside the
borders was imperative this
year, as always, with players like Warrior and 4 star
athlete Marquez Callaway
from Georgia, plus Byrd
and 4 star receiver Brandon Johnson from Florida
choosing the Vols.
“Make no mistake about
it, it all stems with home.
It’s a pride of who we are,”
said Jones “I think the pride
of this state, it means so
much for an instate individual to represent The University of Tennessee more
than any other school in the
country and the passion
behind our fan base, but
also we have other states
that we view as home territory. So to be able to go
in those other states and
really assert ourselves was
very big for our program
and moving forward.”
It’s hard to say that a 4
star quarterback recruit
is the forgotten man in a
recruiting class, but that’s
kind of the case with Jarrett
Guarantano. The Bergen
Catholic HS (NJ) standout has been committed
to Tennessee since last
April and never wavered
in that pledge, so most of
the more recent attention
has gone elsewhere. But
he is likely the most important member of this class
and the quarterback of the
future for the Vols.
“Getting a quarterback
to commit early was very
big for us. You talk about
the quarterback position,
and one of the intangible
traits that you look for are
the leadership qualities,”
said Jones. “Jarrett Guarantano has those leadership qualities, and he was
able to build relationships
with his future teammates,
with his peers. That helped,
but also the commitment
level. Here’s a young man
that could’ve went anywhere in the country, and
had everyone pulling on
him, even the last week in
recruiting. He didn’t take
one other call.”
The hype machine will be
churning at full speed for
the next 7 months. We’ll
see if the Class of 2016
can make a difference as
the Vols try to win the SEC
East for the first time in 9
years.

Johnson University 120, Crown
College 110 and Luke Dalton 46
By Steve Williams
Luke Dalton put his name in the
Crown College basketball record book
last Tuesday night, but he couldn’t sign
off on a victory against rival Johnson
University.
The 6-4 sophomore from Clarksville
swished in 46 points to tie a school
record set over 20 years ago, but the
visiting Royals managed to overcome
Dalton’s big night, outscoring Crown
120-110 in the National Christian College Athletic Association Division II
shootout in Powell.
Dalton tied the school mark that has
been held by Travis Walls since Nov.
11, 1995. His 18 rebounds also gave
him a career-high double and moved
him into 19th place on Crown’s all-time
rebounding list.
The two longtime foes combined for
over 100 points in the first half, and
then turned it up a notch. The final
score looked like something from an
NBA contest.
A spectacular tip-in by Dalton just
before the first-half buzzer gave Crown
a 52-49 lead.
Johnson erased that deficit by scoring 71 points in the second half.
Freshman guard Taylor Gilpin led the
Royals with 24 points as he gunned in
six of eight 3-pointers. Halls High product Kenny White, a sophomore shooting
guard, followed closely with 22 points
and had four steals.
The win kept Johnson tied in first
place with Kentucky Christian University

Clinton had one final

Higgins said he wasn’t

his team’s effort but
lauded Central’s perseverance.

Clinton runs past
Lady Bobcats 50-26
By Ken Lay
When Clinton High School’s
girls basketball team lost to
Central in a holiday tournament in December, Lady Dragons coach Alicia Phillips decided that it was time to make
some changes.
“We’ve changed the way
that we run our offense
since Christmas time,” Phillips said after Clinton shook
off a lethargic start to down
the host Lady Bobcats 50-26
in a District 3-AAA game at
Central High School Tuesday
night. “We played much better
in the second half tonight than
we did in the first half.
“In the first half, they got
some good shots and they
made them. In the second
half, we played much better
defense.”
The Lady Dragons (3-20
overall, 3-9 in the district)
and Lady Bobcats (2-21, 0-14)
were embroiled in a tightly
contested battle throughout
much of the first half and Central held a narrow 16-14 edge
midway through the second
quarter before Clinton scored
the final 11 points of the first
half and opened a 25-16 halftime advantage.
“We had a big run at the
end of the first half and that
changed the complexion of
the game,” Phillips said.
The Lady Bobcats scored
the first five points of the third
quarter as Lazaia Peebles and
Teyanna Beard made consecutive baskets to pull Central
to within four points. Peebles
buried a 3-point shot to make
the score 25-21 with 4 minutes, 21 seconds remaining
in the third stanza.
The Lady Bobcats didn’t
come any closer as the Lady
Dragons closed the frame
with a 12-0 run.
Central scored just 10
points after halftime and the
Lady Dragons took advantage of some second-chance
opportunities to pull away for
a seemingly lopsided victory.
Lady Bobcats coach Josh
Brannon said that he was
pleased with his team’s
effort.
“The biggest difference in
the game was that they had
some second chances off
of their rebounds,” he said.
“We’re still a very young team
and we had some turnovers
and we tried to speed up the
tempo and we turned the ball
over.
“I thought that our effort
was there. Our girls played
hard and I thought this was
a pretty good basketball
game.”
Defensively, the Lady Bobcats couldn’t find a way to stop
Clinton center Kelley Wandell.
She had 16 points to lead all
scorers. Nikki Jones added 16
points for the Lady Dragons.
Peebles scored 15 points
for the Lady Bobcats and
Beard finished with eight.

After special senior season, football wasn’t most important for Scott
(This is Part 3 of a series on Terence Scott, former Central High
football standout who went on to
star at the University of Oregon in
2008. Scott crossed many hurdles
growing up in Knoxville, and then
chased his dream to play Division
1 football. He plans to return home
soon and wants to help Knoxville pull together and put an end
to recent gun violence and gang
activity that has claimed innocent
lives.)
By Steve Williams
The trees and mountains in
Oregon weren’t all that reminded
Terence Scott of Knoxville and East
Tennessee.
Sitting in the University of Oregon
stadium on a recruiting visit brought
back memories of first experiencing
big-time college football and seeing
the Tennessee Vols play in Neyland
Stadium.
“When I was a kid I used to go to
UT games with my friend Tyler Scott
and his family,” recalled Terence. “I
used to imagine what it would be
like having all those people scream
for me. And here I was at the University of Oregon having that opportunity.”
Scott quickly knew this was
where he wanted to play as a junior
and senior. “I don’t know what
came over me. At that moment, I
told them this is where I want to
come and I signed right there.”
Coming off two excellent seasons at the College of the Canyons,
Scott arrived at Oregon in 2007, the
same year Chip Kelly came aboard
as the Ducks’ offensive coordinator and implemented his famous
no huddle, fast attack.
Mike Bellotti was already in
Eugene as Oregon’s veteran head
coach.
Scott was being redshirted his
first season at Oregon, but team
injuries forced coaches to put him
in for one play the sixth game of
the season, costing him much of
his junior campaign.
“So there went my clock for my
junior year,” said Scott recently, looking back on his collegiate
career. “All I had left was my senior
year for any hope or desire to go on
to the NFL.”
Terence was so upset with his
redshirt being burned liked that, he
pulled away from the football program the following summer.
“When they did that to me I
changed,” he recalled. “I lost the
fun of football. My attitude changed
… I pushed away from the whole
organization, changed all of my
classes, stopped working out with
the team.”
Scott said he “had to come back
to the basics” and his roots – Gladiators youth football in Knoxville and
Central High football – in order to
pick up and continue his college
career.
He started getting up at 4 in the
morning, did his training on a mountain, made his own food and made
sure he went to all of his classes to
keep his academics in order.
“That summer,” however, Scott
said, “I was told by the receiver
coach that Mike Bellotti, Chip Kelly
and himself didn’t believe in me
anymore because I hadn’t shown
up.”
At that point, Scott was willing
to settle for any spot on the depth
chart.
“Is there any way I can be a possession receiver?” Scott asked.
“Just let me come in on 3rd and
20 and I’ll get the first down for you
coach.
“He said, ‘I don’t know.’ ”
Scott went home to gather his
thoughts.
“I had come too far not to play,”
he recalled. “I had come too far
to not be the player that I knew I
was. So I started camp as the No.
6 receiver. Humble, quiet.”
His approach paid off.
“Slowly but surely guys started
getting hurt,” said Scott. “Guys
started not doing what they needed
to do … I can remember the first
day they let me run with the ones.
They came down and said, ‘Today
you’re going to run with the ones,
but you’re not going to play this
year.
“Now me knowing me – give me
any opportunity and I’m going to
take off with it.”
And Scott did just that.
“I didn’t look back,” he said. “I
had my best year my senior year.
I was the leading receiver when I
left. I was the leader of the team.
And I did what I said I was going to
do when I started – I played Division 1 football.”
According to the Oregon football
web site, Scott earned honorable
mention on the All-Pac 10 team
and won the Dudley Clarke Memorial Award as the team’s most
improved player.
The CHS product, who started
all 13 games, had career highs of
eight catches and 125 yards in his
last game for Oregon – a Holiday
Bowl win over Oklahoma State.
Scott finished strong, averaging 101.7 yards receiving over his
final three games. That included
93 yards and a 76-yard touchdown – the longest reception of the
season in the conference – at rival
Oregon State and 87 yards and a
TD against Arizona.
Terence got off to a great start
too, with six grabs for 117 yards,
including a 60-yard TD, in the
season opener against Washington.
“Coach Kelly showed me a whole
different scheme of football,” said
Scott. “I loved playing that style.”
He had a 51-yard scoring run
against Utah State in his first career
carry and went on to average 14.2
yards on nine carries.
Both of his catches against Stanford (28 yards) occurred during the
final two minutes and were a big
part of a game-winning 74-yard
drive.
Oregon finished with a 10-3
record.
Scott increased his weight to 185
pounds and hoped to be drafted in
the National Football League, but
that phone call never came.
He later spent his last $100 for
a tryout in Portland with the British Columbia Lions of the Canadian Football League. He landed a
spot on the team’s taxi squad, but
it wasn’t what he thought it would
be. “The fun was gone,” he remembers.
Scott spent one season with B.C.,
and then came back when Pamela
was pregnant with their daughter.
When he learned his first child was
on the way, Scott’s desire to return
to Eugene was even greater as he
wanted to be with the mother of his
child throughout the pregnancy.
Terence said he first thought
the pregnancy would motivate him
even more to play professionally –
providing a means to feed and provide for his family – but it affected
him differently. He wanted to be
there to go through the pregnancy
and birth.
“I remember telling Pamela I’m
done,” he said. “I realized football
was over for me, because I was
excited about my daughter.”
Scott also remembers his last
day at practice and a teammate
telling him he had left his cleats
behind. “He said, ‘You forgot your
shoes.’ I said I wouldn’t need them
anymore. I was in the real world
now.”
Terence’s daughter, Jamiah,
is now five years old and he and
Pamela also have a 17-month-old
son, Terence Jr.

and improved the Royals’
overall record to 8-12.
“This is my first year at
Johnson University, so this
was my first game against
Crown,” said head coach
Brandon Perry. “I’ve heard
the history and how they’ve
had some tough battles over
the years. It was good to be
a part of it and a part of this
atmosphere. It was a great
night.”
Coach Perry said he
thought his team’s defensive pressure was the key to
the win. Crown had 16 turnovers.
A victory over Johnson
would have been huge for
Crown, which lost its first 13
games of the season before
breaking into the win column
at Appalachian Bible College
on Jan. 29. The Royal Crusaders (1-15) will get another chance when they play at
Johnson University on Feb.
16 at 7 p.m.
In addition to basketball
and his academics, Dalton
has been in the National
Guard for a year and a half,
said head coach Jared Berry.
He is averaging 20.2 points
and 9.5 rebounds per contest through 15 games.
“Every game we can count
on Luke to shoot 50 percent
from the field, get to the rim
and get the big men in foul
trouble,” said Coach Berry.
“He just makes great decisions with the basketball and
he’s got a great shot, so when
they sag on him and leave
him at 15 feet, he knocks
those down, too.”
Scoring inside and outside,
Dalton made 20 of 34 field
goal attempts and was five
of seven on 3-point shots. A
better night at the free throw
line – he hit one of six foul
shots – would have given him
the scoring record outright.
Jerimah Gillespie and
Chad Manious added 19
points apiece to Crown’s
total. John Boutchia chipped
in 15. Manious also contributed 11 assists.
Johnson also got 19 points
from Gunner St. John, 15
each from Jordan McClendon and Rickey Bowen and
10 from reserve Kenton Guillion.
Crown jumped out to a 7-0
lead, but Gilpin’s second trey
gave Johnson its first lead at
24-23.
White sank both ends of a
1-and-1 to give the Royals a
40-34 advantage with 3:22
showing in the first half.
Trevor King banked in a
3-point shot to put Johnson
up by nine (72-63) in the
second half. Crown charged

The Royal Crusaders, however, could never get even

margin on another 3-pointer by Gilpin at the 9-minute

Well, we have it on authority: Punxsutawney Phil did
not see his shadow on February 2nd, Groundhog Day,
and therefore we will have
an early spring. This prediction makes about as
much sense as the predictions of thirteen polls which
said Trump would win the
“Hawki Cauci.” Frankly, I
distrust pollsters as much
as I do politicians and the
media. I’m ready to turn it
all off, but I can’t because
it’s all over the TV and radio,
and the robo calls just keep
coming.
Actually, I’m ready for
spring - but not Obama and
Hillary’s Arab Spring which is
an unmitigated disaster. As
a matter of fact, I’d rather it
be hot than cold. Maybe my
age has made me a skeptic
because I also distrust the
hype about anthropogenic
(man-made) global warming which largely comes
from dishonest politicians
and media types who
are not scientists. Folks,
please realize that funding for climate research is
dependent on political correctness and group think.
Recall that commissions for
music and artwork came
from kings and popes in
times past. An artist must
please his benefactor if he
wants more work. Remember, look beyond what they
say these days and ask
yourself why they’re saying
such and such. Simply put,
follow the money.
The season I least like is
the election season. A poll
of 2000 millennials (age
18-29) by The Reason Foundation recently caught my
eye. This generation voted
overwhelmingly for Obama
and supports big government. Millennials are sympathetic to gay marriage,
pot and 40% prefer socialism to capitalism, though
only 16% can define socialism. Many are flocking to
Bernie Sanders and making
Hillary “feel the Bern.” We
shouldn’t be too hard on
millennials because two
thirds of self described liberals and more than 50% of
Democrats have a favorable
view of socialism. Maybe
they all think socialism just
means being sociable.
I suspect other terms
such as right-wing or leftist are often used without
a clear understanding of
what these terms mean.
Arguably, if you can’t define
socialism or capitalism how
can you vote for the self
described socialist Bernie
Sanders or the capitalist
Donald Trump? Even liberalism, progressivism and
conservatism are poorly
conceived in many people’s
minds. Can you differentiate between fundamentalism and evangelism? The
talking heads in the alphabet media certainly can’t.
Consequently, in this election season it seems fitting
to understand the terms
bandied about.
America is a capitalist
country and we’ll start here.
The word capitalism comes
from the Latin word for head.
Capitalism is based on private ownership of the nonlabor means of production.
Examples of capital goods
are buildings, raw materials and machines. Capitalism is an unequaled engine
of production. It fueled the
Industrial Revolution and
American prosperity. Millennials were apparently
never taught this perspective by their liberal professors, and they won’t hear
it from Bernie. Fortunately,
the abusive, unbridled capitalism of the 18th century “robber- barons” is now
long gone.
Modern liberalism is
not the “classical” liberalism of the Founders of
our country who opposed
restrictions on individual
liberty. The Founders’ “old”
liberalism favored free markets, limited government,
private property, and equality under the law. Modern
liberalism began in the
1920s as a rebranding of
the increasingly unpopular
Progressive philosophy that
brought prohibition and the
income tax to Americans.
Later, liberalism became
unpopular and so they
again changed their name
to “modern” progressives.
Self described examples
are Obama and Hillary Clinton. Some people believe
big government, taxes and
regulations can fix our problems, but it can’t. Socialism
is fine, until “you run out of
other people’s money.”
Conservatism stems from
the Latin word conserve or
preserve. This perspective
emphasizes traditions and
social stability. There is no
comprehensive conservative ideology because many
types of conservatives exist.
Sometimes a term is best
defined by examples. There
are fiscal conservatives
like our own Congressman
Jimmy Duncan. Religious or
social conservatism might
be represented by Billy
Graham. Mark Levine is a
Constitutional conservative who holds to the original language of our nation’s
operating agreement. Rush
Limbaugh espouses political conservatism and says
he’s the “big voice on the
right.” Obviously, he opposes the voices on the arbitrary “left” such as progressives.
Progressivism is not
represented by the white-
garbed Flo of the Progressive Insurance company.
Incidentally, this insurance
company was begun by
Peter Lewis whose liberalprogressive and “leftist”
philosophy would be the
opposite of Ronald Reagan’s. The progressive ideology arose out of “populist” yearnings of the late
1800s. Populism derives
from the Latin word populus or people and is a philosophy that focuses on
the differences between
“the people” and “elites.”
Donald Trump has been
labeled a populist.
Socialism arose in the
19th century in opposition to capitalism and the
abuses of the Industrial Revolution. Socialism’s
desire is to abolish capitalism and establish collective
ownership of all means of
production. Class struggle
may be integral to bringing
about social change, and
may be violent as in the
Russian Revolution. Class
struggle in Russia brought
about an extreme form of
socialism known as communism where a small ruling
elite governs the masses.
Lenin once said that the
“goal of socialism is communism.”
Another mechanism of
social change is slower
and may be brought about
through the Cloward-Piven
strategy. These two socialists and Columbia professors articulated a policy
of increasing government
complexity with unending
promises to the masses,
thereby fostering unrealistic
demands and an eventual collapse of the economic system. The result will
be tyranny run by elites.
Cloward and Piven were
lauded by Obama in a Rose
garden ceremony during his
first term.
The media stated that
Ted Cruz won in Iowa
because of the evangelical vote. Until a few years
ago I could not have distinguished between an evangelical and a fundamentalist Christian. I discovered
the fundamentalist perspective began in the late
1800s and holds to a literal
interpretation of the Bible.
An example would be that
the universe and the earth
were created in six days
as noted in Genesis. Personally, I believe the Bible
is more a compendium of
truth rather than facts, so
I am not a fundamentalist.
However, I do unabashedly
proclaim the Gospel message, and like the disciples
of Jesus, Martin Luther and
Billy Graham, I identify with
evangelical Christians.
You may find this essay
odd and non-medical. My
defense is that I am not
a conformist nor will I be
pigeon-holed into a particular topic because my
column appears in the
Focus under Health and
Well Being. I believe there is
more to health and wellbeing than bodily functions.

Parent leaders are the ‘voice’ for their children, the community
By Valarie Bouchard
Anderson County Healthy Families
Home Visitor, Prevent Child Abuse
Tennessee
Parents take on many different
roles in the lives of their children:
cheerleader, counselor, teacher, friend, and so many more.
A role we don’t hear about as
often though is advocate. What
exactly does that mean? Simply
stated, advocates are the “voice”
who speak on behalf of their children. Parents can be leaders and
advocates in the home, in their
children’s schools, in their neighborhood and community, or in
the larger society. Their advocacy
and leadership shapes the development of children, schools, programs and policies, and other
families.
All parents are advocates
and leaders in the lives of their
children. When choosing a pediatrician or a childcare program,
you are acting as an advocate
and leader. Parents advocate for
their child’s well-being, and they
grow as leaders as their children
grow. Parent advocates can act
as mentors in the classroom,
share skills with other parents,
coordinate events for children
and families, or serve as translators or cultural liaisons. They
bring out the strengths in other
parents. Advocates participate in
parent meetings, advisory committees, policy councils, and
other governing bodies as well
as community or state coalitions.
They also represent children and
families in the development of
policy legislation.
Why is advocacy so important? According to the Annie E.
Casey Foundation, parents who
act as partners in their children’s development are critical
to healthy development, early
learning and school-readiness.
Parents who serve in leadership roles strengthen families,
service systems, and communities that support children’s readiness for school. Research supports parent leadership as a way
to create stronger families and
organizations. A prime example
of advocating for your child and
parent leadership having national, long-lasting impact is the evolution of special education services for children with disabilities. Parents have been the driving force for creating civil rights
and educational legislation at the
national level.
Being an advocate for your
children reaps benefits for everyone involved. Parents who are
involved in advocacy and leadership activities positively influence
their children’s learning experiences and serve as an important
role model, not only for their children but for other parents as well.
Benefits to programs, schools,
and agencies include more
accountability and improved services for the family.
Since 2008, Prevent Child
Abuse Tennessee’s Parent Leadership Initiative has led the state
in developing parents as leaders
in community efforts to prevent
abuse and neglect and promote
community support for healthy
child development. The parent
Leadership Initiative engages
parents whose children or families are directly impacted by local
and state programs and child welfare and education policy. The Initiative teaches and encourages
leadership skills, giving parents
the essential tools to advocate
for their own children and to be
the “voice” to speak on behalf
of other families at local, regional, and state levels. The initiative also provides training, onsite
consultation, and “Community
Cafés” to promote parent leadership and assist local and state
organizations in their efforts to
infuse parent voices in program
and policy decisions.

The parable of the
pine saplings that had
workers in the vineyard

(Matthew 20:1-16) is a
in a strip of grass across Brackney,
great example of what

was the baling twine that shot out as shown by his going out every

defense. I felt horrible as it was a to the chagrin of those who had
mistake, but I couldn’t undo what worked all day in the searing heat.
To them this was unfair. God’s
grace has nothing to do with fairness.
Thomas Keating said, “Grace
is God’s need to respond to our
need” (The Kingdom of God is
Like, 72). God has to respond to
our needs. God reaches out to
those standing in the marketplace
who have no work. Their behavior
didn’t merit him reaching out to
them. It was their need that Jesus
is responding to as demonstrated
by the people he reached out to
(the outcasts and sinners). It is
this invitation of grace that continues to go forth to invite us into
the kingdom. No one is forced to
accept. The invitation is given not
by anything we have done, but by
all that God has done. Mercy, like
grace, responds to need. Remember, grace is God giving us something we don’t deserve - salvation.
Mercy is God withholding something we do deserve – judgment
and death.
The bottom line of this parable
is that the kingdom of God is not
based on human standards of justice and equality. I’m sure there
are still people who think the thief
on the cross who was saved by
Jesus shouldn’t have been. But
instead of being upset, we should
rejoice that he was saved. God’s
mercy and grace were at work in
his life, and in your life and mine
today. God continues to respond
to our desperate need for Him.
You and I are the reason God
came in the flesh. He wants us to
accept His invitation to be part of
the kingdom. Some enter early,
others late. But it is all because
of His grace. It is not our reason
or our good works that save us. It
is all a loving gift. We in turn live
and serve in God’s vineyard/kingdom out of gratitude for what He
has given us.

The Knoxville Focus
February 8, 2016
February 2016 Plant of the Month: Crocus
Submitted by Amanda
Plante,
Alumna of the University of
Tennessee Gardens internship
program
Nothing says “spring
is coming” like a flower,
and few early bloomers
announce it as colorfully
as Crocus. Small but
vibrant, Crocus species
appear after Galanthus
nivalis (common snowdrop)
finish their winter show in
January or early February.
Crocus blossoms range
from ghostly white to golden
yellow to deep purple, with
some variegated options.
The petals fold closed on
dark evenings and cloudy
days, making the blooms
resemble a thin balloon.
When the sun is out, the
petals unfurl to form a
beautiful, almost starshaped flower with striking
golden pollen-covered
stamen in the center.
Native to Southern
Europe, one distinguishing
feature of this genus is that
they grow from corms. A
corm is a swollen modified
stem that stores food,
energy and water for the
plant. Crocus corms are
unique in that they have
contractile roots, which
reach out and contract to
pull themselves to their
ideal depth or even right
themselves if accidentally
placed upside-down in the
hole.
Many garden centers and
nurseries are sure to stock
the very popular Dutch
crocus (C. vernus), and other
species are available by
special request or ordering
from catalogs. Look for
varieties with different
bloom periods to extend
flowering in the landscape.
While this month is a good
time to see the flowers in
bloom, Crocus should be
planted when temperatures
are below 60 degrees but
before the first freeze,
typically between October
and November. Plant about
3 inches deep and 4 inches
apart.
Crocus are attractive in
the front of a garden bed
and can be planted among
bulbs and perennials that
bloom later in the season.
Corms can also be safely
planted around the base
of trees, although for best
blooming consider planting
with deciduous trees that
allow dappled sunlight.
Squirrels, chipmunks,
voles and mice are Dutch
crocus’ enemy in the
landscape. If these critters
are a persistent problem in
your garden, test a small
patch of Crocus before
investing in big drifts. C.
tommasinianus is the only
species Dr. Steven Still
notes as “squirrel resistant”
in his Manual of Herbaceous
Ornamental Plants (1994,
Stripes Publishing L.L.C.),
but note that this species is
a prolific spreader. It’s great
for naturalized drifts, but
can be difficult to control in
the garden.
A growing trend has been
to inter-plant Crocus with
turfgrass. Showy blooms
will carpet the lawn weeks
before grass needs to be
mowed, and Crocus’ strappy
green foliage will blend in
with the turf after flowering
is finished. Although C.
vernus has been used in
lawns with limited success,
the best species for reliable,
perennial blooms in the
lawn is C. tommasinianus.
In addition to Crocus’
merit as a beautiful and
cheerful winter bloomer,
Many Crocus species are early bloomers that foretell the coming of spring. They work
well as bed borders and also when naturalized in the landscape under deciduous trees
and even in turfgrass lawns. Photo by A. Plante, used with permission.
one species, C. sativus,
is the source of the spice
saffron. Henry Beston
describes C. sativus in
Herbs and the Earth (1935,
D.R. Godine, Publisher, Inc.):
“An autumn Crocus with
a long history as a drug,
a flavoring powder, and a
pigment, only the golden
stigma of the flower being
used… May not overwinter.”
True enough, although
many Crocus are perennial
in Tennessee, as a USDA
Hardiness Zone 8 plant C.
sativus may not overwinter
for many Tennesseans.
If that doesn’t deter you
from growing your own
saffron, Steven Still writes
that “about 7000 flowers
are required to produce 3
ounces of saffron.”
The UT Gardens, Jackson,
features crocus among its
collections.

Community
Development
Announces Grant
Applications
The City of Knoxville’s Community Development
Department is announcing its grant applications for
program year 2016-2017 (for activities funded after
July 1, 2016). The grant applications are available to
download at www.knoxvilletn.gov/development (under
“Community Development Block Grant and Homeless
Grant” at top of page).
The two grant applications are:
• The Community Development Block Grant, a U.S.
Department of Housing and Urban Development
(HUD) grant program that funds activities that primarily benefit low- and moderate-income persons/
households and areas in the City of Knoxville. Highpriority needs for CDBG (under the 2015-2019
Five-Year Consolidated Plan) include strengthening
neighborhoods, promoting economic development
and promoting affordable housing.
• The Homeless Grant, which may include funding
from multiple sources – the City of Knoxville, Tennessee Housing and Development Agency and
HUD. This grant program funds activities in the
City of Knoxville that meet the high-priority need
(under the 2015-2019 Five-Year Consolidated Plan)
of reducing and ending homelessness.
“This is a great opportunity to provide resources to
citizens to address improving community needs,” said
Community Development Director Becky Wade.
A mandatory Technical Assistance Workshop for all
applicants will be held at the John T. O’Connor Senior
Center, 611 Winona St., on Thursday, Feb 11, 2016
at:
• 10 a.m. for CDBG applicants
• 11 a.m. for Homeless Grant applicants
The deadline for filing an application is noon on
Friday, Feb. 19, 2016, by mail, FedEx or hand delivery. The City will not consider any application received
after that time.
More information about the 2015-2019 Five-Year
Consolidated Plan can be found at www.knoxvilletn.
