City Council
Drop the beer distance ordinance? Council says ‘Not Yet.’
By Mike Steely
[email protected]
It is apparent that the
distance between a beer
retail store and places like
schools, hospitals, churches and mortuaries may
someday be changed but
a 5-4 vote Tuesday evening
by the city council keeps
the 300 foot requirement.
The close decision not to
change the distance rule
came after several minutes
of debate on the ordinance
change request from Council members Marshall Stair
and George Wallace.
Aaron McClain, founder
of The Crafty Bastard brewery, spoke in favor of the
ordinance explaining how
hard it was to find a property for his business that
met the distance requirement. He said that breweries in Knoxville are part
of the revitalization of the
city and said the current
distance requirement is
“archaic.”
Councilman Nick Pavlis
responded that the requirement is not archaic and
“works very well.”
Brenda Palmer, the
council member who
heads the Beer Board,
told McClain that he knew
about the distance requirement.
The main objection by
opponents to the distance
rule is that applicants
for beer permits that are
too close to churches or
schools are being told, by
the beer board, they can
apply for a state liquor
license which has no distance requirements, and if
issued, also sell beer.
Councilman Nick Delle
Volpe said the current law
is to protect “these institutions” but he recognized
that the state permits are
“a work around.”
“We’re not required to
issue a beer permit just
New Pump, Wetland To
Improve Fountain City Lake
because the state has
issued a liquor permit,” he
said.
Pavlis said that some
190 applications for beer
sales have been considered over the past 5 years
and only 5 were affected by
the distance requirement.
“The rules are in place

Efforts to begin the repairs on Fountain City Lake was slated to begin in September 2014, pictured above, when algae covered 80% of
the lake.
The City of Knoxville’s efforts to restore
Fountain City Lake took a major step forward Tuesday night, when City Council
voted unanimously to authorize a contract
of up to $91,250 with a Knoxville company to install a new pump, pipes and other
infrastructure essential to maintaining this
community resource.
The pump, to be installed by Design &
Construction Services Inc. by late spring,
will restore constant circulation in the lake,
increase oxygen levels in the water and
moderate temperatures – all of which will
reduce the growth of algae.
“This iconic lake is truly cherished, and
we’re taking careful, thorough steps to
restore it in such a way that our children
and grandchildren will be able to enjoy its
beauty many decades from now,” Mayor
Madeline Rogero said.
“We always understood that rehabilitating Fountain City Lake would be a longterm project. We’re not finished yet, but
I’m pleased that we’re well on our way
toward returning the lake to its former
grandeur.”
Last fall, work began with a repair of a
leak in the earthen berm that surrounds
the 125-year-old manmade but springfed lake. A new water outlet structure was
installed last year. Those initial improvements allowed the lake to fill to its proper
depth.
Because algae thrives in warm, stagnant,
shallow water, both deepening the lake
and aerating the water with the new pump
and plumbing are critical upgrades.
Additional steps, like creating a small
wetland area in what’s now a shallow spot
on the lake’s northern end, are planned for
later this spring and early summer.
This next step would aid habitat diversity while reducing the size of a stagnant
zone of water that’s been conducive to the
growth of thick algae. The wetland vegetation also would filter pollutants and absorb
some of the nutrients from waterfowl feces
that are now in the water and promoting

The wetland area will be planted with
native species, and the lake will be
restocked with triploid grass carp and blue
tilapia to control aquatic vegetation. Chemical algaecide will be sparingly applied if
needed.

Both the advisory committee
and the KAT Board met recently in separate sessions and
both meetings saw some interesting comments.
“We need a good step class,”
said Chris Jenkins, a Knoxville
Area Transit Community Advisory Committee Member speaking at a recent meeting of that
board, referring to where a bus
or trolley stops to let people
get on and off the vehicles.
He applauded one driver
for dropping off riders on concrete rather than gravel. Many
handicapped people ride the
public transit system. The
step class would remind drivers of the most courteous
manner to serve passengers.
Advisory Chairwoman Sandy
Booher, a member from the
Council on Disabilities Issues,
reported she met with an
Americans with Disabilities
Act member recently who is a
former trolley driver and they
discussed safety issues.
She said the Advisory Committee is shy two members and
needs those members named
by city council members George
Wallace and Brenda Palmer.
The committee is made up of
citizens named by each council district members and members from local organizations.
Those members currently are
named by the University of Tennessee, the CAC, CBID, the
Homeless Coalition, Pellissippi State, Knoxville College and
Mayor Rogero’s office. All members serve two year terms.
Most advisory members
are users of the city transportation system and act in an
advisory capacity to KAT. The
group was formed in 1981.
Booher said that Dawn Distler, Director of Transit, will

threats.
In fact, there have been
at least four threats at FHS
since February. Last Tuesday, the high school was
evacuated and students
were sequestered in the
football stadium for several hours. More information,
or at least more consistent
information, is what many
of those who spoke at the
meeting were requesting.
Brian Mayer, a parent,
said that he doesn’t have
confidence in KCS because,
“We don’t know what the
plan is and we don’t know
who is in charge, and I got
conflicting messages. You
don’t have to give me specifics but I do need more
communication.”
Students also want to
know the plan and expectations. Junior Viktoria
Ohstrom said, “As a student
I need to know where I’m
expected to be, how I am
expected to behave in this
situation and that’s not
what I’m getting.”
Carson explained that
there are two general
responses to a threat:
hard lock down, where
everyone stays where they
are and there is no movement, and soft lock down,
which allows movement
from class to class within
a building. She said, “Our
specific response changes
with every situation.”
Chief of Security Gus
Paidousis explained, “All
threats are taken very seriously, but all threats aren’t
created equal… What we
know dictates to a large
degree what we do, but
also what we don’t know
dictates what we do… We
don’t want to push out
information that creates a
blueprint for someone to
create a threat.”
Dr. McIntyre added, “We
respond based on the
nature of the threat.” He
said there may be a different response to each
threat, from early dismissal to moving kids to cancelling school. “Our interest is
to provide as much information as we possibly can,
as quickly as we possibly
can. Our first obligation is
to keep your kids safe.”
Carson encouraged parents to be proactive, to be
aware of what their child is
doing on social media, and
try to de-escalate their
child’s anxiety (and their
own) during these events.
She cited the anonymous
tip line set up to help “see

Drop the beer distance ordinance? Council says ‘Not Yet.’
March is Woman’s
History Month and
Tuesday local attorney Wanda Sobleski
spoke of the timeline
of women getting the
vote during the city
council meeting. She
noted that it was one
vote by an East Tennessee legislator that
succeeded in Tennessee and passed the
constitutional right.
Many of the women in the main assembly room held
up time-line cards
recalling important
dates in U. S. history involving women
and their contributions.

careful,” said Councilman
Daniel Brown.
“You inhibit business
development because of
that requirement,” Wallace
said. He explained that he
offered the agenda items,
being considered on first
reading, to create a public
discussion.
“I don’t regret bringing it,
I still support it,” he said. Stair said the issuance of
liquor permits by the state
with no distance requirement is “a giant loophole.”
“We’re in a position to
change that. We’ve already
exempted downtown, “he
said, mentioning the growing density in areas like
Bearden, the South Waterfront, Magnolia, Central
and Broadway as being
similar.
He said the current distance requirement affects
small restaurants like pizza
places that may want to sell
beer.
“The craft beer industry
is typically mom and pop
operations,” Stair said.
Councilman Finbarr
Saunders said that the city
“needs to be as friendly as
we can” and said he’d like
to see the conversation
keep going.
“We need to deal with
this,” he said.
The vote to consider
dropping the 300 foot distance between beer selling stores and the other
establishments saw Wallace, Saunders, Stair and
Mark Campen voting for
the change and Brown,
Della Volpe, Palmer, Pavlis
and Duane Grieve opposing it.
In a related matter the
city council, after much
discussion and public comment, voted to delay a decision about final food truck
regulations for two weeks.
The debate on that subject has also to do with
distance — the distance
between the food vehicles and neighborhoods,
whether or not the trucks
can use “smokers” to their
locations, and where the
trucks can operate.
Larry Silverstein and Carlene Malone spoke in opposition to several items in
the food truck regulations
and primarily against the
smokers. The language of
the ordinance now goes to
the city law office and will
return to the council where
it will apparently continue
to face opposition.
“Just remember,” said
Grieve, “It took three and
one-half years for the sign
ordinance.”
He said the ordinance
language has “several
sticky points” with the main
objection concerning the
smokers.
Della Volpe, in referring to
applications that passed to
issue certificates of compliance for the new state wine
sales from grocery stores,
said he was surprised that
there were 22 applications
from Pilot stores. The certificates were issued by the
council with Della Volpe’s
support but he commented
that the state requires at
least 20% of the sales from
a business to be food.

current and new members about their duties
and responsibilities.
During the KAT board
Lincoln Lincoln, a downtown resident and activist,
told the board that he isn’t
letting up on his opposition to limit trolley service
to Summit Towers. Many
elderly and handicapped
people live in the complex
and rely on public transit.
The board voted last
month to cut back on
stops at the tower complex. Lincoln said the
new policy, which begins
in May means only 7
stops there each day
while a similar apartment building in town
will get 44 stops per day
and 26 on Saturdays.
“I’ve written three
letters and one petition, no one has been
acknowledged or replied
to (them),” he said.
“Something that has
been done tells me
no one cares,” Lincoln
commented, adding
that he will continue to
oppose the cutbacks if
it comes to city council.
“I want you to do the
right thing,” he said. He
explained that a 90-yearold artist lives in the
Summit Hill Apartments
and operates a studio
downtown. He said he met
with the man, who rides
public transit both ways,
and was told that the trip
back from downtown on
the proposed new schedule would be difficult.
Lincoln also asked
about progress in creating a bus stop at
the bottom of the hill,
on Summit Drive, and
requested a bench be
placed at that stop.
In other KAT Board business, a representative
of ITT Technical Institute

JEFF OWNBY ‘A more independent thinker’
By Mike Steely
[email protected]
At least four people will
be leaving as commissioners this fall. Commissioners
Mike Brown, Jeff Ownby,
Sam McKenzie and Amy
Broyles are departing. Mike
Steely is talking with each
of them about their time on
the body and their thoughts
about their future and that
of the commission.
After six years on Knox
County Commission, 4th
District representative
Jeff Ownby will be leaving.
Defeated in his Republican
Primary, Ownby isn’t bitter.
He’s has been changed by
the term in office.
“I transitioned into a
more independent thinker.
When I was campaigning I
thought everything was a
right or left issue. That isn’t
always true,” Ownby told
The Knoxville Focus.
Ownby is proud of his
years and his accomplishments, including his introduction and the passage
of a county-wide pet ordinance and his time on the
Safety Center Committee.
“I fought against the closing of Lakeshore. Everything I said was going to
happen has happened,” he
said, referring to the homeless mentally ill being on
the streets and occupying
about 25% of the Detention
Center population.
“Hopefully we will get it
to an RFP (Request for Proposal) before Mike Brown
and I leave,” Ownby said,
adding that the proposed
number of beds for a center
is not enough and that the
county has got to look at
a regional center with support from the state and surrounding counties.
“It would be a pilot program and if it works the
state is looking at other
areas and plans to close
all the state mental facilities,” Ownby said.
What’s he going to do
after his time on commission?
“Continue to sell real
estate,” he said, adding that
he works with Realty Executives. Ownby and his family
also own 14 rental homes
around Knox County.
“We buy them, rehab
them to a point that I would
live in them,” he said.
Asked if he would seek
another public office he
said he may consider that
later but he would serve
on a committee or group if
appointed. “I’d like to serve
again,” he said.
“I’ll remain active,” he
said. The Ownby family
attends Faith Promise
Church and Jeff is active
in other groups such as
the West Hills Neighborhood Association and Knox
Forum.
Ownby said that the 5
p.m. meetings of the commission, changed last year
from 7 p.m., has been successful and more of the
public participate.
Asked if he ever changed
his mind on a vote Ownby
said he entered a commission meeting against the
Huber Apartments development on Westland and
decided the matter was
one of “property rights”
and then voted for the proposal.
“The next commission is
going to have to deal with
the Safety Center and the
lawsuit about the Midway
Industrial Park, which I
believe will stand up,” he
said.
“I became good friends
with quite a few of the commissioners and formed personal bonds with some of
them,” he said, noting that
he drew close with Chairman Dave Wright and Commissioner Amy Broyles
during his term.
“We came from Black
Wednesday and this is a
very good commission. I’m
proud to have served,” he
said.
Town Hall Meeting held to Discuss
Recent Threats at Farragut High School
Cont. from page 2
a bomb threat, asked, “In
your personal opinion,
do you think that these
threats are unrelated and
not going to be a problem in
the future, or do you think
they are a reflection on a
bigger problem that we are
not really seeing?” Carson
said she didn’t want to
speculate, but encouraged
anyone thinking this was
part of a bigger problem to
talk with parents, school
officials, law officers, etc.
Here is a reporting on
recent threats from the
Knox County Sheriff’s website, and other reported
threat incidents during the
2015-2016 school year:
School Bomb Threats
Update - Thursday, March

Sheriff’s Office advises that
every individual that has
been involved in a bomb

Schools has been identified and or charged.

Identified. Tuesday, March
29, 2016. The Major
Crimes Unit of the Knox
County Sheriff’s Office has
arrested a 16 year old male
student from Farragut High
School for making a bomb
threat at the school this
morning. The school was

investigators searched the
school and interviewed
students and staff after

The Knox County Sheriff’s Office has charged a
16-year-old girl with making
a bomb threat at Hardin
Valley School last week.
The teen is a student at
the school and is charged
with making a bomb threat
and vandalism. The school
was closed last Thursday
after school officials found
a bomb threat written on
the girls’ bathroom wall.
Monday, December 7,
2015. It was reported that
the Knoxville Police Department and Knox County
Schools Security increased
their presence at West High
School after a threatening
message was written on
a boys restroom wall. The
handwritten message, “I
will cleanse this school
on Monday,” followed by
a smiley face, was discovered the previous Friday,
according to Knoxville
Police Department spokesman Darrell DeBusk.
August 14, 2015. It
was reported that a bomb
threat called into Brickey-McCloud Elementary
in Halls may be related to
a series of threats made
earlier against schools in
Middle Tennessee, including Hickman, Davidson,
Sumner, Maury, Lewis, and
Rutherford counties.

National Adopt A Shelter Pet Day
By Howard Baker, RN
BSN
National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day is celebrated
yearly on April 30; created to bring awareness to
the tens of thousands of
animals waiting for adoption in shelters. Hobo the
Wonder Dog is a rescue
dog in the truest sense
of the word. I rescued
Hobo from the Sevier
County Humane Society
where he now serves as
an Ambassador. The relationship you forge with a
shelter animal is like no
other in its strength and
acceptance. Often people
who rescue an animal will
wonder whether they rescued the animal or did the
animal rescue them—the
bond is often that strong.
Few relationships in life
are as strong and unconditional as the bond with
our pets. Our pets accept
us unconditionally even
if we are fat, skinny, sick,
healthy, or moody, and
bring us joy through thick
and thin in the best and
worst of times. Because of
our pet’s strong unconditional bond, they become
a significant extension of
our family and our health.
The devoted unconditional companionship
we build with our pets is
only the beginning of the
benefits we reap from
a human-animal bond.
According to Mayo Clinic
cancer specialist, Dr.
Edward Creagan, “Seniors
with pets have twenty-one
percent fewer physician
visits, lower blood pressure and better coping
skills.” The US Department of Health concluded
Hobo the Wonder Dog making a difference
pets increased survival
rates of heart attack victims by 28% to only 6%
for non-pet owners. Other
health benefits of pet ownership include: decreases
in blood pressure, cholesterol and triglyceride levels
and the feelings of loneliness while increasing
opportunities for exercise,
socialization and outdoor
activities.
Clearly, there are many
personal benefits of adopting a shelter pet, but what
if you cannot have a pet
of your own at this point
in your life? Then Hobo
the Wonder Dog and I
encourage you to please
consider making National
Adopt a Shelter Pet Day
into Adopt a Shelter Day.
Animal shelters are often
stretched for resources,
time, money, with no shortage of animals to walk,
feed, love and clean-up
after. Adopting a Shelter
and getting involved may
offer the same health benefits as owning a pet. One
thing is for sure, the animals and workers alike
will enjoy seeing you and
appreciate your support.
There are opportunities for
everyone. You could volunteer, donate a bag of food
or a box of treats, or make
a financial contribution.
Seemingly small gifts can
make a huge difference in
the life of a shelter pet.
Help celebrate National Adopt a Shelter Pet Day
by sharing pictures of your
adopted pet on social
media using #adoptashelterpetday. Hobo and I ask
you to share a picture of an
adoptable pet in your local
shelter on your Facebook
page. You never know—
the picture you share
might spark love at first
sight between a friend and
a shelter pet—wow what a
gift.

Our National Landmarks
Railroad Depots
By Mikes Steely
[email protected]
Knoxville is celebrating
225 years this year and
you probably don’t realize that the city and its
county have some 111
places on the National
Register of Historic Sites.
That includes not only historic homes and buildings
but also landmarks.
You probably know our
“main” sites on the national registry but there are
many you may not know
that are on the list. Places
like the Mead Marble
Quarry, the Lindberg
Forest Neighborhood, or
the cemetery at Lebanon
in the Forks of the Rivers.
Also on the list are the
Keystone Building, the
Andrew Johnson Building,
the Jackson Warehouse
District, the Gibbs Drive
Historic Neighborhood,
Fire Station #5 in
Mechanicsville, Happy
Holler, and the Ebenezer
Mill.
Oddly enough our oldest
structure, the James
White Fort, is not on the
list. The main house built
by our city’s founder was
removed during the town’s
development, placed on a
farm, and then removed

The Southern Railroad Terminal was built in 1903 and designed by Frank Pierce
Milburn. It was listed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1985 and at one
time had a clock tower.
again to its present location. Being dismantled
and moved twice disqualifies the fort from the
national list.
The downtown railroad
depots are a great example of how the historic
buildings can be repurposed to house offices,
businesses and venues.
After languishing for years
of little use the Knoxville
railroad stations are
having a rebirth.
The Southern
Depot
Our region was settled
but did not really boom
until the Civil War. Following
that great conflict the railroads came and transformed the area’s travel,
population and culture.
Unlike the river trade that
preceded the trains the
railroads brought and took
goods from here, brought
a different people, and
prosperity.
The railroads also
brought war to Knoxville
and a struggle to control
troop and supply movement. Early in the war
bridge burners, a group of
civilian Union supporters,
destroyed railroad bridges where they could.
Capturing East Tennessee
meant cutting off a vital
link in the rebelling
states.
Railroads reached our
county about ten years
before the Civil War. After
the war the railroads transformed Knoxville’s small
population and made the
city a major shipping and
commercial center.
The terminal complex
also had dozens of warehouses and storefronts
next to the Old City and
that complex is included in the recognition as
National Landmarks.
Where the station sits
was considered a problem by the early city for it
was swampy and known
as “Flag Pond.” But, being
the most level spot in the
area it was chosen for
the terminal and the 11
rail tracks there. The railroad company was known
and owned by various parties until, in 1894, financier J.P. Morgan and other
investors bought and combined companies to form
the Southern Railway.
In its heyday the
Southern Terminal had 26

From State
Representative
Harry Brooks
I hope everyone had a
wonderful week back in
the district. It has been a
great week in Nashville.
With committees closing
out, everything is reaching
the House floor so session
is now meeting three times
a week.
I would like to turn your
attention to the discussion that took place on the
House and Senate floors
this week. For quite some
time, the power of administrative agencies has continuously increased. The
traditional role of administrative agencies has been
to implement the general
policy laid down by the legislature and have only such
powers as is granted by
the legislature, while being
“rule-makers” as you will.
The manner in which
Tennessee state government administrative
agencies exercise their
rulemaking function is
governed by the Uniform
Administrative Procedures
Act (UAPA), passed in 1974.
However, over time and
due to current state law,
administrative agencies
have been able to engage
in excessive rule making.
Present law requires that
the UAPA be given a “liberal”
construction, meaning that
administrative agencies are
able to create excessive
regulations, whether for
good or bad, and impose
them with little legislative
oversight. Present law also
deems that the Government
Operations Committees
review administrative rules
that agencies impose, and
the agency must show that
the rule/regulation should
be continued, with the committee bearing the burden
of showing that the bill
should not be continued.
This week the House and
Senate passed legislation
to fix the problems with
administrative agencies
promulgating excessive
rules. The item is House Bill

Is there anything
good on TV?
A few weeks ago I wrote about my
favorite TV shows on ME-TV from
the sixties and seventies. My granddaughter asked me, “But, Nana,
don’t you like any of the programs
that are on today?” Yes, indeed, I do.
And here they are.
My very favorite, The Good Wife is
going off the air, which I write with
tears in my eyes. What a program! I
can’t imagine where the writers get
their ideas for criminal cases, lawyer’s influx that surpass one’s imagination, with some interludes of love
and sex. Nicely done, of course. The
only fault I find with this show is
when they took Josh Charles off by
killing him. Perhaps they will produce
The Good Husband??
Blue Bloods--another favorite,
where Tom Selleck, the commissioner of the New York police force, positively does his job faultlessly with the
help of his daughter and two sons.
He rarely makes a mistake in his
endeavor of doing his job.
Madam Secretary is another
program full of intrigue and it goes
out of the country many times to fulfill U.S.A’s ambition to help others.
Tea Leoni does her job well and
could show some of our ambassadors what’s what.
Mom is a sitcom consisting of a
group of ladies who are embattling
addiction--be it drugs or alcohol, they
each have their own powerful ways
of getting through one day at a time.
They all do it differently but with the
same outlook--faith. The mother and
daughter participation is hilarious.
There are other good shows but
these are the main ones to me, I
think, because they are family oriented. I don’t have any movie channels except what’s on basic cable,
because they show the same movies
over and over. My day wouldn’t be
complete without my proverbial
favorites, The Price Is Right, Wheel
of Fortune, and Jeopardy. And if you
want to spend a joyful, fun-filled
hour, watch The Little Big Shots. As
far as sport channels are concerned,
after football is over, there’s always
the Tennis Channel. Great!

service from the terminal ended in
1970.
The owners of The Foundry have
acquired the Southern Depot and
host parties, events, and gatherings
there now. The depot is located at
318 West Depot Street in downtown
Knoxville. The Blue Slip Winery also
operates at the depot.
Behind the Southern Terminal is
a great example of what passenger
trains were once like and the cars
include a postal sorting car, dining
car, and two passenger cars. The
station is also the home of Bullock
Smith Architects and the Old Smoky
Railway Museum.

Terminal
Built as a warehouse to serve the
Southern Depot, the long building,
across the tracks from the main
depot, named the Jackson Avenue
Terminal now has a life of its own.
Restored it now houses All Occasion
Catering which hosts large events
from weddings and receptions to
business and other gatherings.
The L&N Depot
Often the first landmark encountered
by downtown visitors is the majestic L&N Station, where Henley Street
meets Western Avenue and Summitt
Hill. The Louisville and Nashville Rail
Road reached Knoxville after Southern
completed a line from Cincinnati to
Atlanta. Although the rail line reached
Knoxville in 1855, it didn’t have access
to passenger service until the owners
of the L&N and Southern agreed not
to compete. L&N handled transportation north and south and Southern ran
east and west.
The beautiful station was started in
1904 and was designed by Richard
Monfort. It opened a year later. The
last passenger train to leave the station was in 1968. The railroad company continued to operate offices there
until 1975.
Today the station is the home of the
L&N Stem Academy, a Knox County
magnet school for science, engineering and math.
At one time warehouses and tracks
extended to the back of the building.
The station was renovated for the
World’s Fair by Alex Harkness and
Station 83 Partners and it was once
considered one of the most beautiful
depots along the L&N system.

John Nance Garner as Vice President
Pages from the Past
By Ray Hill
[email protected]
Few men have been as
colorful as John Nance
Garner of Texas. Garner
spent thirty-eight years in
Washington, D. C., and the
last eight as vice president
under Franklin Delano
Roosevelt. Yet, Garner
shunned the limelight,
preferring to make his
considerable presence felt
in the corridors of power
and hidden offices of the
Capitol. While Garner had
little affection and even less
respect for the office of the
vice president, he wielded
more real power than his
predecessors and almost
all of his successors. After
having been out of office for
a while, Garner told Collier’s
magazine that the vice
presidency was “almost
wholly unimpor tant.”
Garner referred to the vice
presidency disdainfully
as “the spare tire of
government.”
Later still, Garner
lamented that having been
elected vice president “was
the worst thing that ever
happened to me.” Garner’s
most famous quote was
pithy and varies depending
upon the source. Garner
was quoted as having said
the vice presidency was
not worth a “warm bucket
of spit.” The even earthier
version quotes Garner as
saying the office was not
worth a “warm bucket of
piss.”
Garner himself insisted
the latter quote was
accurate.
The former vice president
huf fed that “ those
pantywaist writers wouldn’t
print it the way I said it.”
Despite John Nance
Garner’s obvious contempt
for the vice presidency,
many historians consider
the Texan to have been
the most influential vice
president in American
history.
John Nance Garner
had first been elected to
Congress in 1902 and
continued to rise through
the ranks until he was
elected Speaker of the
House in 1931. Garner
was a genuine presidential
prospect in 1932, a year
when Democrats had a
good chance to defeat
incumbent Republican
Herbert Hoover due to the
Great Depression. Garner
seemed little interested in
a presidential campaign,
although he had the
support of media baron
William Randolph Hearst.
The leading candidate
for the Democratic
presidential nomination
was New York Governor
Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Garner dealt Roosevelt’s
candidacy a serious
setback by defeating him in
the California presidential
preference primary. Going
into the Democratic
National Convention with
the backing of the large
California and Texas
delegations, Speaker
Garner was a force to be
reckoned with.
At the time, the
Democratic Party rules
required a nominee to win
two thirds of the voting
delegates and after a
strong start, the Roosevelt
candidacy appeared to
be ready to stall. Garner
released his delegates
and FDR was nominated.
While the Roosevelt
adherents likely promised,
or at the very least dangled
the prospect of the vice
presidential nomination to
a host of aspirants, FDR
picked Garner to run with
him in the 1932 general
election. Garner reluctantly
accepted, a decision he
regretted for the rest of
his life. John Nance Garner
surrendered a position of
real power for an office
that mattered little until or
unless a president died in
office.
The Roosevelt – Garner
ticket was probably the
strongest the Democrats
could have nominated that
year, although President
Hoover likely would have
lost to any respectable
opponent. Americans
were dispirited, fearful,
and anxious to escape
the oppression of the
Depression. Americans
wanted change. Roosevelt
and Garner won the election
easily.
Garner, taking no
chances, had been
reelected to Congress the
same day voters elected
him vice president. Garner
resigned from his seat in
Congress to take the oath
of office as vice president.
One of his responsibilities
as vice president was to
serve as the presiding
officer of the United States
Senate.
The rough-hewn Garner
proved to be highly
personally popular with
the members of the U. S.
Senate. Vice President
Garner would prove to
be an asset to Roosevelt
inside the Senate when
the ornery Texan wished to
be; he would also prove to
be an immovable obstacle
when he did not wish to be
helpful.
The Roosevelt – Garner
relationship had been
warm in the beginning. It
would not last.
During FDR’s first
administration, it was not
unusual for Garner to leave
the Senate rostrum to go
onto the floor and grab
a recalcitrant senator to
personally lobby on behalf
of the president’s program.
Garner was supportive of
the emergency measures
to help alleviate the
suffering caused by the
Great Depression. As
time passed, Garner’s
innate conser vatism
began to conflict with
Roosevelt’s liberalism.
Garner also disliked
President Roosevelt’s
constant interference in
Congressional matters,
believing in the separation
of powers.
The vice president was a
constant presence during
Cabinet meetings, but
the exchanges between
Garner and Roosevelt
began to have an edge.
There were occasions when
From the author’s personal collection.
Portrait of Vice President John Nance Garner of Texas, circa 1933
the exchanges became
heated.
Roosevelt and Garner
were reelected in 1936 in
one of the most historic
election sweeps in history,
carrying every state in the
union save for Vermont and
Maine. Almost immediately
tensions between the
president and vice
president were noticeable.
Garner helped to engineer
the election of his friend
and fellow Texan Sam
Rayburn as Majority Leader.
When labor riots broke out
in Michigan, Garner was
aghast. The vice president
believed the strikers had
violated the concept of
property rights, a concept
he held dear.
“In Texas,” Garner
growled, “we call that
stealing.”
Roosevelt surprised not
only Congress, but also
his vice president when
he decided he wanted to
enlarge the U. S. Supreme
Court. FDR’s “court packing”
plan was controversial,
but John N. Garner was
horrified. Publicly, Garner
maintained a golden
silence, but was observed
by senators departing the
Senate Chamber holding
his nose once when the bill
was under discussion.
P r i v a t e l y,
Garner
predicted “It will be many
moons before the boss
signs that bill.”
For those who had missed
the vice president holding
his nose, Garner turned
his thumb down when the
bill was read in the Senate.
To make his opinion even
more plain, Garner left for
an extended vacation while
Congress was in session,
returning to his home in
Uvalde. Garner’s desertion
of Roosevelt made it easier
for many Democratic
senators to abandon FDR
and oppose the courtpacking bill.
Senate Majority Leader
Joe Robinson of Arkansas
died at the height of the
court fight, dropping dead
of a heart attack in his
apartment. Robinson had
been under great stress
and had worked himself to
death. The passage of the
court-packing bill died with
Joe Robinson.
Roosevelt once again
interfered in the Senate’s
af fairs, siding with
Kentuckian Alben W. Barkley
to succeed Robinson over
Mississippian Pat Harrison.
Barkley won by a single
vote.
By 1938, John Nance
Garner was no longer
in sympathy with most
of Franklin Roosevelt’s
legislative agenda. Garner
was especially appalled
by the constant spending
of the New Deal. The two
men came to a breaking
point when a vindictive
Roosevelt sought to purge
conservative Democrats
in the primaries in 1938.
Roosevelt was determined
to make an example out
of several senators: E. D.
“Cotton Ed” Smith of South
Carolina, Pat McCarran
of Nevada, Guy Gillette
of Iowa, Walter F. George
of Georgia and Millard
Tydings of Maryland, who
were among those who had
profoundly offended FDR
by their refusal to support
his court-packing plan.
Garner bluntly said, “The
President of the United
States ought not take part
in congressional fights.”
President Roosevelt
toured much of the country
that year and openly
called for the defeat of
Senator Walter George.
Despite being opposed by
two serious candidates,
George was reelected.
Cotton Ed Smith won a
smashing victory inside
the primar y against
Governor Olin D. Johnston,
who had the support of
FDR. Millard Tydings also
easily beat a Roosevelt
backed opponent. In fact,
Roosevelt only managed
to unseat one conservative
Democrat, Congressman
John O’Connor in his native
New York. Roosevelt had to
endure the humiliation of
seeing all the conservatives
renominated
and
reelected.
Worse still, Senator James
P. Pope of Idaho, a stalwart
New Deal Democrat lost his
primary to Congressman D.
Worth Clark, an isolationist
conservative. Senator
William G. McAdoo, who
had begged for and gotten a
presidential endorsement,
was
d e fe a t e d
fo r
renomination.
FDR’s
smashing
reelection in 1936 was
but a memory following
the general election in
1938. Republicans won
72 seats in the House of
Representatives. The GOP
won seven seats in the
United States Senate. The
crest of the New Deal tidal
wave had begun to ebb.
Vice President John
Nance Garner ceased
to be a factor inside the
Roosevelt administration
for the two years remaining
of his second term,
although he became a
rallying point for many of
those more conservative
Democrats opposed to
what they considered to
be the excesses of the New
Deal.
If Garner had been
horrified by Roosevelt’s
insistence upon interfering
in congressional matters,
he was positively appalled
when FDR seemed all too
willing to run for a third term
in 1940. Garner announced
his own candidacy for the
Democratic nomination,
knowing he had no chance
to win.
Garner was denounced
by labor leader John L.
Lewis as “a poker playing,
whiskey drinking, labor
baiting, evil old man.”
President Roosevelt
himself joked that he
presumed his Cabinet
members heard that
Garner had “tossed his
bottle — I mean hat” into
the presidential ring.
FDR
shattered
precedents and Garner
only received 61 votes at
the Democratic National
Convention in 1940.
Franklin Roosevelt
was nominated for an
unprecedented third term
and “Cactus Jack” Garner
no more wanted to run for
vice president again than
FDR wanted him as his
running mate. After thirtyeight years in Washington,
D. C., Garner decided it was
time to go home to Uvalde,
Texas.
Garner’s wife, “Ettie” had
been his personal secretary
throughout his time as both
congressman and vice
president; they packed
up their belongings and
returned to the mansion
they had built years
earlier.
The former vice president
managed his extensive
bu s ine s s
in tere s t s ,
smoked cigars, enjoyed
his whiskey, and assumed
the status of a celebrated
elder statesman. Garner
remained a force inside the
Texas Democratic Party.
Garner had no need
to worry about money
during his retirement.
The former vice president
wore expensive suits, but
was known for pinching a
penny. His parsimonious
ways were legendary during
his time in Washington, D. C.
He and Ettie lived well, but
relatively simply.
Either Garner or his wife
burned his personal and
political papers, leaving
an unimaginable void for
future historians, which
may also explain why no
scholarly biography of the
former vice president has
ever been written. The
loss of thirty-eight years of
Garner’s correspondence
is incalculable.
John Garner’s retirement
lasted far longer than anyone
could have imagined, likely
himself included. For
twenty-seven years, the
former vice president held
court to a host of visiting
friends and neighbors.
He outlived practically
everyone, including Franklin
Roosevelt, his wife, Ettie,
and even his friend and
protégé Sam Rayburn.
Garner’s birthday became
quite an occasion and the
former vice president was
celebrating with friends
when President John F.
Kennedy called to offer his
own congratulations on
November 22, 1963.
Ettie Garner suffered
from Parkinson’s Disease
and died August 17, 1948.
After Miss Ettie died,
Garner moved out of the
mansion to a smaller home
built behind the big house.
The Garner home is now a
museum in Uvalde.
Garner lived long enough
to see fellow Texan Lyndon
B. Johnson rise to the vice
presidency and eventually
the presidency. Garner
almost lived long enough
to see LBJ return home
to Texas. Garner died on
November 7, 1967, just
days shy of his ninety-ninth
birthday.
John and Ettie Garner
only had one child, a son,
Tully. Tully Garner did not
survive his father long,
dying less than a year after
his father.

This bill replaces the present law

to agency powers, and specifies
that an agency bears the burden
of proving by clear and convincing evidence that a rule should

by voting to request that the

Bearden overcomes slow start to down Green Wave 4-1
By Ken Lay
Bearden High School
boys soccer coach Ryan
Radcliffe finally saw his
team produce the results
he wanted when it focused
and went back to basics.
“Credit Gallatin,” Radcliffe said after his Bulldogs
notched a 4-1 win over the
Green Wave Thursday night
in the opening round of the
Bearden Invitational at
Bruce Allender Field. “Our
focus wasn’t there early.
Gallatin came out and started strong. We were flat.
“We were living off our
first two wins. Sometimes,
the boys forget that we’re
Bearden and they forget
that we’re always going to
get everybody’s best game.
After the slow start, everybody tried to complicate
the game. Once, we simplified the game, we did a
better job.”
The Green Wave (2-2)
took an early lead when
Antonio Aquino converted
a penalty kick in the 11th
minute after Bearden (3-0)
was called for a foul in the
goal box.
The Bulldogs missed
some early chances. Gabe
Alvarez missed an open goal
when he directed a header
over the top of the crossbar
in the 19th minute.
But Alvarez, a senior forward, or Bearden didn’t
stay off the scoreboard
long. Alvarez tied the game
in the 33rd minute when
he chipped the ball over
Deonta Kensinger’s head
and into the back of the
Green Wave net in the 33rd
minute.
Alvarez’s first goal of the
match started a barrage
of four unanswered markers for the Bulldogs, who
took a 2-1 lead when Emre
Ucack scored later in the
33rd minute.
Radcliffe saw his side
finish the first half with a
flourish but he was far from
happy with his team’s effort
over the inaugural 40 minutes of the match.
The coach felt a little
better after the Bulldogs
stepped things up after
halftime.
“I really like the way that
the boys responded after
an ugly first half,” Radcliffe
said.
Bearden outshot Gallatin
19-4 in the match and 12-1
in the opening half.
Radcliffe commended
Kensinger’s effort between
the posts.
“He’s a good goalie,”
Radcliffe said. “He stopped
some good shots and he
did a great job.”
Kensiger, however, had
no answer for Alvarez in the
end. The Bearden forward
closed the scoring with a
pair of goals in a five-minute span.
His marker in the 62nd
minute gave the Bulldogs a
3-1 lead and was assisted
by Jonathan Meyshik.

Lady Admirals win
three, rout rival Bearden
By Ken Lay
After opening the 2016
season by losing four of its
first six games, the Farragut
High School softball game
is in the midst of a threegame winning streak.
The Lady Admirals (5-5
overall, 3-1 in District
4-AAA) opened the week
with a 14-0 victory over
rival Bearden Tuesday night
at Bellamy Field. They outlasted William Blount 2-1
on Wednesday and routed
Heritage 10-0 on the road
Thursday night.
A gainst the L ady
Bulldogs, Farragut scored
early and often. After starting pitcher Kayla Hindle
retired Bearden (0-3, 0-2)
in order in the top of the
first inning, the Admirals
sent 12 batters to the plate
in their half of the frame.
Cont. on page 3
Tom Gerlach made a triumphant return to Knoxville
Thursday night.
Gerlach, the longtime
Christian Academy of Knoxville boys soccer coach who
guided the Warriors to multiple Class A/AA Championships, coached his first high
school game in Knoxville
since going to Christ Presbyterian Academy.
And he saw his defending Class A/AA champion Lions notch a 3-0 win
over Hardin Valley Academy in the opening round of
the Bearden Invitational at
Bruce Allender Field.
Gerlach, who led the Lions
to a state championship in
his first season at CPA last
year, is no stranger to the
Bearden Invitational nor did
the Hawks (1-2) take him by
surprise Thursday.
“Hardin Valley is a school
with great tradition and
they will always give you a
tough game,” Gerlach said.
“The Bearden tournament
is a premiere tournament in
Tennessee or in East Tennessee and that’s why we
came here.
“We’re also in the Houston Tournament, so we’ll see
the best competition in the
east and the west.”
For nearly 40 minutes, the
Lions (4-0-1) and Hawks,
who reached the Class AAA
state semifinals last year,
were embroiled in a scoreless tie. But Chip Omer gave
the Lions a 1-0 lead with
8.6 seconds remaining in
the first half when he fired
the ball past HVA goalkeeper Jeremy Wise and into the
back of the Hawks’ net.
That was the final real
play of consequence before
halftime of a match that
was ended with 5 minutes,
14 seconds left due to lightning in the area.
“That was a great effort
from Chip Omer to get us
on the board with eight seconds left in the first half,”
Gerlach said. “Their keeper
[Wise] made a couple of big
saves.”
In the second half, the
Hawks, who won both the
District 4-AAA regular-season title and tournament
championships, picked up
the intensity after the break.
But CPA, which outlasted
CAK to win the 2015 state
title, scored two more markers in the match.
Tucker Duncan gave
the Lions a 2-0 lead in the
54th minute and Spencer
Hagan closed out the scoring approximately 16 minutes later.
Mark Patterson, Hardin
Valley’s first-year coach, said
that his squad made some
crucial mistakes that cost it
the game.
“I don’t think they played
better than us,” said Patterson, who led the Lady Hawks
to a second consecutive
state tournament appearance last fall. “I think that
we had the better chances. But it was the mistakes.
When you make mistakes,
you get punished for them
and that’s what happened
to us tonight.”
enjoy every season

three, rout
rival Bearden
Continued from page 1
Farragut, which has had its offensive struggles
out of the gate, scored eight runs in the opening inning. Seven of those runs crossed the plate
before the Lady Bulldogs even recorded an out.
Farragut leadoff hitter Niki Slone drew a walk
to start things for the Lady Admirals. She stole
second and advanced to third with a passed ball.
She came home with the game’s first run when
Kelsie Tuggle doubled.
The Lady Admirals took a 3-0 lead on a two-run
single by senior first baseman Mary Claire Coyne.
Farragut scored another run when Andrea Sarhatt
reached on an error.
Hindle had a run batted in on a sacrifice fly. Slone
had an RBI single in her second plate appearance
of the inning and Tuggle’s two-run double made
the score 8-0.
Bearden’s frustration had to hit a peak in the top
of the second as both Rachel Colwell and Micah
Stair both hit the ball hard but came up empty
thanks to a pair of defensive gems by Farragut right
fielder Sam Caruso and Slone at shortstop.
The Lady Admirals plated four more runs in the
second. Left fielder Delanie Weller started that rally
with a two-run homer.
Madison Etter, who had a one-out triple also
scored on Weller’s round tripper.
Designated player Bailey Young had an RBI
double and Coyne had a scoring single before the
frame concluded.
The Lady Bulldogs got their first base runner
in the third as Piper Rucker walked. She, however, was retired when Jessica Ray rapped into a
double play.
The Lady Admirals extended their advantage
to 13-0 in the third on an RBI single by Morgan
Stapleton.
Bearden picked up its lone hit of the contest
when shortstop Jersey Patterson got aboard. She
was one of only three Lady Bulldogs to reach base
in the contest.
Emma Geron closed out the scoring with an RBI
single that drove home Caruso, who singled early
in the inning.
Hindle and Callie Moore combined on the onehit shutout for the Lady Admirals.
Farragut coach David Moore said he was pleased
after his squad’s first district victory.
“It was good to get some kids some playing time
and some at-bats,” Coach Moore said. “We played
some good defense. Niki had a great play at short
and Sam had a great catch in the outfield and M.C.
made a great play at first.
“We hit the ball well and Kayla and Callie pitched
well. I think we only gave up one hit. This was a
good game for us and Bearden is still a rivalry
game for us.”

Powell 14U boys work
overtime and then some for title
By Steve Williams
Powell’s 14U boys basketball team faced an uphill
battle in the Knox County
tournament at East Knox
Elementary School.
After losing its first-round
game to Carter, Coach
Bryson Cowden’s team
would have to come back
through the losers’ bracket. From that point on, each
contest became the title
game for Powell.
“I missed the first game
and I knew they (players) were just as upset as
me about the loss,” said
Cowden via text message.
“The fire in all of us was
burning hotter than the
sun.”
Powell beat Halls, SouthDoyle and East Knox to
reach the finals. But Powell
would have to defeat Carter
twice to take the title.
“What I remember most
is the four-overtime championship game … but this
was Game 1,” said Cowden.
“It was at the end of the
second overtime. One of my
centers, Colton Webb, got
fouled as time expired and
had the chance to knock
down two free throws in
a tied-game situation. He
missed both.
“They walked over to the
bench with their heads
down. I told them that this
was Carter’s championship
game. They had given all
they had and if we pull this
out, we will be driving home
with a trophy in our hand.
“Carter played their
championship game, but
they never realized we had
been playing ours since
the first loss. Every game
was our final and that’s the
attitude we went into each
game with.”
Three victories in one
night – the one over host
East Knox and the two over
Carter. It was a hard-earned
championship.
Powell teams ended up
capturing four of the seven
County tournament titles
this season, as its 6U coed,
8U boys and 10U girls also
prevailed.
Honors were spread out
more evenly in the 11 City
tournaments. East Knoxville Athletic Association
and West Bearden Basketball League each won
three championships, while
Knox Youth Sports and
New Breed took two titles
apiece.
The City tournament featured over 100 teams in
the 11 divisions.
“After seeing a wide
range of scores and skill
level during the season, we
and the City commissioners decided to split the divisions with large numbers of
teams into divisions - gold,
silver, bronze,” e-mailed
Aaron Browning, Athletics
Coordinator for the Knoxville Parks and Recreation
Department.
“The commissioners
and coaches were able to
determine which level they
wanted to play in. We think
that it resulted in a better
experience for the players
as it seemed like games
were closer and teams in
these divisions had closer
scores throughout the tournament.”
Ward keeps his promise and continues
to give back to youth sports
By Steve Williams
Youth sports have always
meant a lot to Joe Ward and
still do.
Ward played his first basketball game as an 11-yearold in the Griffin (Ga.) Spalding County Parks and
Recreation Department’s
youth program in the mid1970s. He went on to earn
Coaches’ All-SEC first-team
honors at the University of
Georgia under Coach Hugh
Durham in 1986 and continued his career by playing
nine years of professional
ball.
After all of his success on
the hardwood, Ward hasn’t
forgotten where he started
and he’s been proud to be
a part of the City of Knoxville’s Parks and Recreation Department for several years now.
Ward arrived in the Knoxville area not long after his
retirement as a player in
1994 and started coaching with the Rule Christian
Academy (RCA) recreation
program. He guided RCA’s
15 to 17-year-olds for nine
years. Some seasons he
would coach three different
teams and they won many
championships.
Ward said this past
season felt like a “return
to those glory days” as he
assisted head coach Chris
“Ace” Hunter’s Center City
Youth Sports Program’s
team, which defeated
CCYSP-Nelson 28-14 in
the City tournament’s 12U
boys Gold Division championship game.
“For my son Jeremiah and for the team and
myself, I was very excited,” said Ward, who has
now coached three years
for CCYSP. Even the gym on
Asheville Highway, the site
of the finals, reminded him
of past titles won with the
RCA program.
“For me at 53, a
championship, whether it
is recreation, high school,
college or pros, is a championship at any level. You’re
always excited to be able
to achieve your goals and
reach that destination.”
Ward said he was blessed
to be able to play the game
of basketball and many
people helped him along
the way.
“As a youth, I was the
oldest of seven kids and
my father killed a man
and went to prison when I
was a boy, so I didn’t have
a father figure,” he said.
“There were a lot of people,
a lot of pastors, my basketball coach Bobby York and
other men in the community that reached out and
helped me and did things in
my life to help me get to my
goal and destination.
“So I made a deal with
God a long time ago,”
added Ward, “that if He
allowed me to be blessed
to play professional basketball, I told Him I promised to go back and see to
it that I help other young
men and women get the
same opportunity that I
was given and hope that
I could impact somebody
like I was impacted along
the way.”
Ward has been faithful to
his promise. In fact, he will
return to Griffin Friday night
to receive an award from
his hometown for “giving
back to the community.”
Ward, who founded Basketball Ministries International in 1989, will be putting on the 30th annual
basketball camp at Griffin
this year.
Ward said Knoxville’s
Parks and Recreation
Department “has done
a fantastic job. I’m excited about being used and
making a difference whenever I can.
“These organizations are
vital to our community and
make a difference. How do
I know? I’m a product of
Parks and Recreation. I was
11 years old when I played
basketball for the first time
and it was because of Parks
and Rec.
“I’m very grateful for the
volunteers who give up
their time and resources to
see to it that another young
Joe Ward can be raised up
in the city of Knoxville, the
same opportunity I was
given in Griffin.”
In addition to coaching basketball, Ward
also contributes in football season as a self-proclaimed “world’s greatest
water boy.” He also sets
an example by helping with
clean-up duties and takes
advantage of being around
the youngsters to promote
good sportsmanship.
In high school at Griffin, a hotbed for athletic
talent just south of Atlanta, one of Ward’s “mentors”
was former UT football and
track star Willie Gault, who
was a senior when he was
a sophomore.
Ward was a 6-foot-6
jumping jack and averaged
a team-high 15.6 points his
senior season at Georgia.
One of his fondest memories of his college playing days was being on the
1985 Georgia team that
beat Kentucky in Rupp
Arena, the first Bulldogs
team to win at Lexington in
62 years.
“As we left the arena
after the game we were
surprised to see some
23,000 Kentucky fans still
in the stands,” recalled
Ward. “Their coach, Eddie
Sutton, was going to have a
practice and they stayed to
watch. That tells you what
their fans think of their basketball.”
One of Ward’s accomplishments as a pro was
averaging a league-leading
53 points per game playing
in the Philippines. He said
Tony White, former Tennessee star, ranked second
with a 47-point average.
Ward was head basketball coach at Knoxville College before it closed. He
also was honored as a SEC
legend at the conference
tournament in 2006.
His resume is quite full,
but he’s not done yet. The
kids keep coming and he
keeps giving, like he promised he would.

Why Cheating
Pays Off in the
NCAA
By Alex Norman
The best event in the
NCAA is the men’s basketball tournament. For three
weeks, the nation is captivated by the established
powers and the underdogs,
all put in the same 68 team
bubble, until one squad
reigns supreme.
Even with the academic
sham that is the “one and
done” era, this event rarely
fails to bring forth multiple
“shining moments.” We
had the MTSU upset of
Michigan State in the first
round, Texas A&M’s miracle comeback against Iowa
State, and Oklahoma’s
Buddy Hield carrying this
team to the Final Four.
But then we get to the
Final Four itself and we dive
right back into the muck.
Oklahoma was to face off
with Villanova in one semifinal. In the other it was
a matchup between Syracuse, a team that is currently on probation, against
North Carolina, a team that
likely will end up on probation, or worse…
Let’s start with Syracuse. An eight year investigation into the program
revealed wide spread academic fraud, drug policy
violations, and improper
payments to players. The
NCAA ruled that Syracuse
coach Jim Boeheim failed
to monitor his program.
Syracuse pulled off a preemptive strike in February
2015 with a self-imposed
ban on postseason play.
The cynic looks at that
moving as a self-serving
Southern
Golden
Gloves
affair on the part of the
Orange. Syracuse was in
rebuilding mode during the
2014-2015 season, and
likely not equipped to get
deep into the NCAA tournament, if at all.
The NCAA ended up not
punishing Syracuse in that
regard, but did lay down
penalties including scholarship reductions and
recruiting limitations. Boeheim was also stripped of
108 career victories (but
for some reason the 2003
national title stays with
Boeheim/Syracuse).
However, the NCAA also
shifted a nine game Boeheim suspension away from
ACC play, and the NCAA
committee decided Syracuse’s bid should be considered based on only the
games Boeheim coached.
The Orange went 4-5 without Boeheim on the sidelines, and suddenly their
18-13 record and 70+ RPI
didn’t look nearly as bad.
So what happened? Syracuse got into the tournament, got a few breaks,
and then upset Virginia in
the Regional Final to earn a
spot in the Final Four.
Last week before the
NCAA semifinals were
played, Boeheim addressed
the media. And in the way
that only Boeheim could,
explained why cheating is
not the same as violating
the rules.
“It’s something I regret,”
Boeheim said. “I’m not
happy about that. I don’t
think we gained any competitive advantage at any
time in this whole case that

Bill Wilson Joins Hall of Fame
On December 5, 2015 at the Airport Hilton, Knoxville, Wilford (Bill) Wilson was inducted into
the Tennessee ASA Hall of Fame. During his 42-year career, Bill umpired numerous State and
Regional tournaments and 25 National Tournaments. In 1982 Bill was selected as the State
Junior Olympics Umpire-In-Chief. He held this position for eighteen years. He was selected
to the ASA National Indicator Fraternity and won two National Federation awards: One was
the National Federation Award for Indicator Fraternity and the other for Outstanding Official.
Bill also umpired fast-pitch softball for T.S.S.A.A. for 25 years. Since retiring in 2012 – after 42
years with the Sheriff ’s Department -- Bill still enjoys watching his three grandsons play slowpitch softball. The love of the sport runs in the family. His son, Roger Wilson, coached and
sponsored several teams and his grandson, Andy, played on an ASA Super softball team until
he was tragically killed in a car accident.
we’ve been through for 10
years. I think it weighed on
us for 10 years and affected recruiting for 10 years.
That’s just part of the punishment. But when they
say ‘cheating,’ that’s not
true. Rules being broken
is a lot different. Cheating
to me is intentionally doing
something, like you wanted
to get this recruit so you
arranged a job for him, or
you went to see him when
you shouldn’t. You called
him when you shouldn’t to
gain an edge in recruiting
to get a really good player.
That’s cheating.”
North Carolina’s situation, as hard as it may be
to believe, is actually worse
than Syracuse’s. For close
to two decades, thousands
of UNC students, including many men’s basketball players, got credit for
taking classes in the African studies department
that required no attendance, nor any significant
work, and they weren’t
supervised by a professor.
In typical North Carolina
fashion, the school went
“four corners.” They stalled
the NCAA investigation so
successfully that the final
notice of allegations won’t
be complete until next
month. The fact that the
investigation, which has
taken years, still is not complete allowed the Tar Heels
to play in this tournament.
Kids, the moral to this
story is that cheating pays
off… at least in the Syracuse and North Carolina
cases.
For Louisville, it didn’t
pay off because Louisville
self-imposed a postseason ban for this season
in which they had a really
good team. Syracuse got
a boost in their chances
for that NCAA bid. Both are
ACC schools, and it might
have been tougher for the
selection committee to add
yet another team from that
conference.
For Tennessee, it didn’t
pay off when Bruce Pearl
went back to the NCAA and
told them he wasn’t telling
the truth about the infamous BBQ. If Pearl had
stalled or refused to answer
the NCAA’s questions until
he could confer with legal
counsel, he might still be
the coach at Tennessee
today.
This is sad, but it is also
the college sports world we
live in.
Syracuse and North Carolina haven’t won morally.
But they have won
games.

Words
Some weeks it’s harder
than others to write this
column. This week’s essay
is the four hundred and
ninth essay I’ve written for
The Focus, each with an
average of 1000 words. Do
the math; this calculates
to four hundred and nine
thousand words over the
last eight years. Perhaps
I’ve said enough. Some
illiberals have written to
me and said I should shut
up. Nah! You know you’re
doing some good when
you make ‘em holler with
indignation. After all, if you
pull the tail of a donkey it
brays.
In the summer of 2001 a
friend of mine challenged
me to begin spiritual journaling. I resisted, stating
that the only writing I had
ever done was for assignments in high school
and college. He told me
I should just try spiritual
journaling; so I did and it
changed my life. After all,
how do you know whether
you like brussels sprouts
unless you try them. I’ve
tried them multiple ways
and I find them to be a
“vile weed,” if I may quote
Newman on Seinfeld.
Years ago my daughter gave me the aphorism
from her fortune-cookie.
The pithy message in the
bland cookie read, “Start
writing and the answers
will come.” Succinctly,
this fortune-cookie perspective embodied a long
standing philosophy of
mine. I’ve often advised
patients to write out their
feelings. Stressful situations can sometimes paralyze people, and organizing your feelings on paper
or verbalizing your fears
through prayer or with a
trusted friend is often liberating. Have you ever
noticed that you feel better
after vomiting? This may
seem crude, but by analogy, praying or spiritual journalizing seems to work as
a cathartic for the psyche.
Freud would agree.
Lately, I’ve been considering all the years I’ve been
writing for The Focus. I
write because this creative
process gives me joy. However, recently I remarked to
my wife that I had written
more than 400,000 words
for The Focus. And as I got
to thinking about my past
essays in the News Sentinel and the Tennessee
Medical Association Journal, as well as my spiritual
writing of the last fifteen
years, I concluded that I’ve
written more than a million
and a half words. Undoubtedly, more words than
I’ve spoken in the same
period.
Words are just the tools
we use to communicate
with each other, and can
be written or spoken. We

policies of a strong central government. Those
“Democrats” were sympathetic to the Republican movement in France

Reign of Terror and the

so appreciate. Also, seemingly unusual this spring
was a virtual sea of flowering white pear trees which
appeared even before the

that Bradford pear trees,

Knoxville’s Largest Music Festival Returns to the
Historic Old City this Weekend
Rhythm N’ Blooms is a
Festival that’s just as much
about the City of Knoxville
as it is about music. That’s
not to say it lacks premiere
music or a premium listening
environment, but it blends
a top-notch music festival
experience with the identity and
spirit of our rich East Tennessee
history. Knoxville’s story
has always been set to music.
Rhythm N’ Blooms highlights
that soundtrack and celebrates
the crossroads of the city’s
varied music history. Whether
the music is nationally known
or local favorites, Rhythm N’
Blooms only showcases the most
preeminent artists. Presented
by Yee-Haw Brewing Company,
and co-produced by Dogwood
Arts and Attack Monkey
Productions, Rhythm N’
Blooms is excited to announce
new, exciting features to the
Rhythm N’ Blooms Festival
experience!

details of Knoxville’s place in
music history. Tours will begin

Tours will last approximately

UT Arboretum Society to hold Knoxville’s Largest Music Festival
50th Annual Plant Sale
Returns to the Historic Old City
The University of Tennessee
Arboretum Society’s 50th annual
Spring Plant Sale will gather the best of
four local nurseries in one location.
The sale will be held on Saturday, April
16th from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. at the UT
Arboretum at 901 S. Illinois Ave. (Hwy.
62) in Oak Ridge. The “Members Only”
sale will be on Friday evening, April
15th from 5-7 p.m. Memberships may
be purchased at that time for this “early
bird” shopping opportunity. Checks
and credit cards will be accepted.
Beaver Creek and Riverdale Nurseries
from Knoxville, Sunlight Gardens from
Andersonville and East Fork Nursery
from Sevierville will be offering a large
and varied selection of shrubs, trees,
wildflowers, perennials, annuals and
edibles. Brad Greenwood Designs will
have unique botanically themed copper
garden ornaments and steel features for
the home and yard. Dano’s Hot Dogs,
with an expanded menu, will again be
at this event.
Back by popular demand, the
Society will be offering ‘The Rising
Sun™’ Redbud. This new Redbud
displays brilliant, golden tangerine
and lime-colored, heart-shaped foliage
all summer and was a quick sell-out
plant last year. The Society will also
be offering a limited supply of another
new redbud tree: ‘Alley Cat’. ‘Alley Cat’
was literally discovered in an alley in
Kentucky and has beautiful green and
white variegated foliage which is stable
and scorch resistant.
Retired U.T. horticulture professor
Dr. Will Witte, the “Answer Man”,
will be on hand to answer your plant
questions and will be selling books
from his personal horticulture library.

A Very Special Arts Festival
A Very Special Arts
Festival is a one of a kind
event that celebrates
Knox County Students
with diverse abilities and
the various artistic skills
they are learning in the
classroom. The event is
not a competition, but an
opportunity for students
with disabilities to share
their talents, works of art,
and accomplishments with
the community. Through
this event, we hope to
encourage and stimulate
feelings of self-worth within
these students.
The event includes a wide
variety of activities in music,
dance, drama, and visual
arts. Workshops of “make
and take” arts and crafts,
demonstrations, exhibits of
art work, and performances
by indiv idua ls w it h
disabilities are all elements
of the festival. Students will
enjoy spending time with
local mascot/character
favorites, an exhibit from
the Knoxville Zoo mobile,
sidewalk chalk, bubbles, a
DJ, and more!
Supported by AKIMA
Women’s Club of Knoxville,
The Pilot Club, West High
School, and West Knoxville
Civitan Club, the event is
a united effort between
Dog wood Ar ts, t he
University of Tennessee
Departments of Art and
Special Education, and
Knox County Schools.

artists. Dogwood Arts
