With the gas prices jumping leaps and bounds upward, it’s the time

to look around at the local region for entertainment, shopping, home

improvements and vacations. The roller coaster bumpy ride to the gas

pumps is causing nausea for all of us. But before you ‘throw up,’ take a look at some of the

best local happenings in your own backyard!

One of those local happenings in your backyard is the event on March 10 – women

celebrating years of achievement – the Women’s Empowerment Network of Women will

host their 5th Annual International Women’s Day Celebration at the Country Club of Bristol

on Saturday, March 10. Dinner, sharing of inspiration, entertainment and great door prizes

are all included for one price. See page 17 for details.

Another must attend event - YWCA Tribute to Women. Twelve local women are chosen

and the recipients are honored at this event. The banquet will be April 19, 2012, so call now

to make your reservations – 423-968-9444. This is a terrific opportunity to show your

support to the YW and the women of the region!

Not too far from your backyard is a new project for Voice Magazine, Mountain Girl Press

Appalachia region. Get involved! Please visit our website, www.javawithjanie.com. For

MarchHot Hunk Hunt!

The February “Hot Hunk” was Bradley Cooperin the Trading Post ad on page 27. Surviving the Lions

By: Robin Dugall

“..Yea, though I walk through the valley of the shadow of death, I will fear noevil: for thou art with me; thy rod and thy staff they comfort me.” Psalm 23:4 KJV

There is a myth in much of Christianity that once you become a follower of Jesus

you are “protected” from tough times. People interpret the “abundant life” that Jesus

promises as if His role is to insulate us from the hard realities of life, but it just

doesn’t happen that way. For those who trust in Jesus, we echo what David wrote

when he penned those famous words in the 23rd Psalm.

Note that David, the author of Psalm 23, didn’t write, “IF I walk through the

valley…” Rather, he exclaims “even though.” Hard times are inevitable and to

be anticipated. It is part of what it means to live in a broken world.

There was a young man who went through horrendously hard times in his life. His

name was Daniel, and his story can be found in the book of the Old Testament that

bears his name. One of the most well-known stories about Daniel’s life is when he

took a courageous stand for God and ended up at the bottom of a lions’ den as a

result. Even though King Darius respected Daniel, he had violated the king’s law

and was quickly sent to the lions’ den to suffer a certain death. Daniel was

thrown to the lions, but he did not die. Instead, God delivered him. The king

was so astounded by the way God protected Daniel that the king himself came to

acknowledge Him as his own God.

While we may never have to face being thrown to actual lions, hard times will

come that threaten all we hold dear. We can trust in God or we can allow the

challenges to overcome us. When you are experiencing hard times, make God your

highest priority. Build the foundation of your life on Him.

We don’t have to face tough times alone. God has put people in your life to

encourage and support you. As Peter said in his New Testament letter, “..Humbleyourselves therefore under the mighty hand of God, that he may exalt you in duetime: Casting all your care upon him; for he careth for you.” (1 Peter 5:6-7KJV.)

This means that “humble yourselves under the mighty power of God and He willhonor and bless you."

With your trust placed firmly in God and His power to deliver, you too can survive

the “lions” you face.

Claudia Byrd, along with her daughter and son-in-law, sat in

the ticket booth of Bristol Motor Speedway in Lights on

December 11, 2011 and informed everyone in line that, for that

night only, their admittance would be free.

That night was Random Act of Kindness night at the

Speedway, which was started in honor of Jeff Byrd, Claudia’s

husband and President of BMS, who passed away from cancer

in October of 2010.

“We told people that all of our wonderful sponsors have

made it possible to come in for free in honor of Jeff’s birthday,

which is December 10,” said Claudia, Director of the

Speedway Children’s Charities in Bristol. “All we asked in

return is that they do something nice for someone else during

the holidays.”

They lead by example. On the 15th Annual Night

of Smiles in 2011, held the week before

Thanksgiving and the night before Speedway in Lights opens, Speedway

Children’s Charities gave away a record $660,000 to local non-profit

children’s organizations, coming a long way from the first year in which

they gave away $118,000. Claudia started the Bristol Chapter of the

Speedway Children’s Charities in 1996 when she moved here from

Winston-Salem, North Carolina, after Jeff got a job offer at BMS.

After researching, Claudia realized that other chapters of Speedway

Children’s Charities hosted several black tie events as fundraisers, but she

also realized that at such formal events, the same people tended to attend.

“I wanted to do something different that not only raised money for kids but

was also something kids would enjoy,” she said.

On the way to a race in Charlotte, Claudia and Jeff brainstormed and came up with

the idea for Speedway in Lights, which first opened in 1997.

“The very first night we were there, everything was out of our pockets, and we had no

idea if anybody would show up,” said Claudia.

That first year, the ticket booth was set up in the parking lot in a shed-like building,

where the volunteers and staff wore aprons. Even though the tickets they had kept sticking

together, they successfully sold the tickets and handled money out of their apron pockets

the entire first run of Speedway in Lights.

Since that first year, the employees of BMS are busy in the fall because they double as

decorators for Speedway in Lights. They clean up for two weeks after the August races, then

immediately start putting up lights.

“It doesn’t take that long to get them down, but it takes that long to get them up,” said


Although Speedway in Lights is the biggest, Speedway Children’s Charities also holds

several other fundraisers, including, for the past four years, the Sharky 500, which was a hit

with children. Claudia said that it is a lot of fun, but at the end of the race, someone has to

sort the 7,100 rubber ducks into numerical order, usually the interns.

Last year, a new fundraiser was established to appeal to a different clientele: the

Speedway Children’s Charities Shooting Stars tournament, held at an indoor shooting range.

Austin Dillon, the grandson of

former NASCAR racer, Richard

Childress was the celebrity


“There were people there

who had never been to one of

our fundraisers,” said Claudia.

“Everyone there said they’d be

back this year, and this year it

will be bigger and better.”

Her favorite part of her job,

by far, is the Night of Smiles

when she gives the money away.

However, there is one part of her

job that Claudia could live without.

“The hardest thing for me every year is to sign the letters that say we are unable to grant

your request this year,” she said.

Even though their $660,000 year was record-breaking, $2.1 million was requested

through grants, and there was no way for every agency to receive money. This worried

Claudia, she said, more than anything.

“Jeff would always tell me not to dwell on that,” said Claudia. ”So far, we have

raised more than $6 million for children. ‘Just think,’ he’d say. ‘Without you, that

money would not be there for those kids.’”

Every year, more than $1 million dollars in grants is requested from

legitimate agencies that help children from 16 counties in Northeast

Tennessee and Southwest Virginia. The box of grants is kept in Claudia’s

office. In fact, Claudia has a copy of every single grant that she has ever


Twenty judges diligently read each grant, vote and fill out a list for how

much each organization should get. Then they meet for lunch to privately

discuss details.

“It works out beautifully,” said Claudia. “It takes a while, but it works out

beautifully. My goal is to be able to give some money to every organization that

requests it.”

She works hard every day because she knows Jeff wanted SCC to be successful. Claudia

says that thought is what keeps her going.

“I want to do this as long as they’ll let me,” she said. “I want to be happy, healthy and

spend time with my family. That is something I learned in 2010: that life is too short to take

anything for granted.”

When she says “family,” she not only means her two children and 8 grandchildren, whose

pictures fill her office, but she also means her family at the Speedway. She said that she

could not have made it through 2010, and Jeff’s struggle with cancer, without them.

“We talk about Jeff all the time because he was an amazing person,” said Claudia. “I hear

stories of things he did for people all the time. There were things he did that I had no idea.

He loved to do random acts of kindness.”

Claudia said that Jeff motivated people to give back to the community, and that he did

that better than anybody she has ever known. So she follows his example.

“I know every dollar we make is going to directly affect the life of a child,” she said.

“And that makes you feel so good no matter how tired you are on race weekend and no

matter how bad your feet hurt. You think, ‘I can’t do this anymore.’ But then you look at

the numbers at the end of the day, and you think, ‘I wonder how many children we can help

with that.’”

Claudia Byrd, Director of the Bristol

Chapter of the SpeedwayChildren’s Charities

By Crystal Robertson, UT Extension Agent- Unicoi County

As winter is moving out, and spring weather is on its way

in, many of us are excited to get outside and enjoy – well –

all of it! It’s called Spring Fever, and March is the perfect time

to use that anticipation to start planning an herb garden.

Gardening provides a way to exercise more, eat more

nutritious food and have a healthier lifestyle. It can provide

strength and cardio training, increase flexibility, plus relieve

stress. Herb growing is one of the best ways to jump into

gardening, and fresh herbs are a bonus part of the garden that

sometimes gets overlooked. Herbs enhance the flavor of foods thereby reducing the

use of salt and sugar.

Don’t let the wide selection of herbs deter you from deciding which herbs to

choose. Gardening gives us a chance to be creative, so let your personality shine

through in your garden. A quick check of your supermarket shelf will give you some

idea of the types of herbs used in cooking. Many cookbooks also offer information

on uses of various herbs as flavorings.

The following is a good variety of uses and flavor of recommended herbs for


Strong herbs -- oregano, rosemary, sage

Medium-flavored herbs-- sweet basil, dill, mint, sweet marjoram, tarragon, thyme

Mild herbs -- chives, parsley, summer savory

As your interest and needs increase, you can add to the

variety of herbs in your garden. Keep in mind that herbs can be

annuals, biennials or perennials when selecting herbs to grow for

the first time.

Annuals (bloom one season and die) -- anise, basil, coriander, dill

Biennials (live two seasons, blooming second season only) --caraway, parsley

Perennials (bloom each season once established) -- chives, fennel,

marjoram, mint, tarragon, thyme

Plant herbs into groups of similar needs. Many of the herbs we grow

today are from the Mediterranean region of the world and thus hot, dry

summer weather suits them perfectly. Herbs have differing cultivation needs,

including water, soil and sunlight. Many, such as oregano and marjoram, have

different cultivation requirements than cilantro or mint, which grow well in shade or

partial shade.

Most herbs like loose, well-drained soil, high in peat moss, vermiculite and even

sand. Generally, a soil that is well-drained but can still hold moisture is desirable.

When spacing the plants, a general rule is to allow each herb plant twelve inches of

soil space. This ensures that each plant has the requisite room for roots, etc.

Before fertilizing, I recommend testing your soil, which provides a look at what

nutrients may be lacking or excessive in your garden. Soil tests can be obtained at

your local Extension office. While some fertilization can help herbs, excessive

fertilizing causes herbs to grow out of control. You’ll grow a large plant, however,

flavor may be compromised and the plants will need more water to support the lush


Herbs are used for many things from cooking to drying for potpourri. The addition

of herbs to meals brings more nutrition without adding more bulk or calories, and they

make a great addition to a landscape. No matter if it's a window box or an acre garden,

you will be healthier for it.

Are you yellow? yellow? Provided by Fashion Flora

For 2012 spring fashion trend, get out

the color palette. This season’s trends are

energizing with extreme super-bold

colors like bright orange and soft pastels

like baby blue in very lady-like sheath

dresses and straight-from-the-gym

sportswear. But according to Budget

Fashionista, while this spring is all about

color, the color of the spring season is


With hoping for a brighter sunnier day

in our economy, the influence of Solar Power and Cyber Yellow is seen by

designers decking out everything from sporty rain coats to full-length evening

gowns with the color yellow.

Whether designers went rich and romantic or clean and classic with the glowing

tone, one thing is clear: anyone can wear yellow. There’s something lovable and

attainable about the shade that often beats out equally bright pigments like pink or

turquoise. Fashionistas of bohemian, sporty and preppy styling alike can all pull

from spring’s yellow trend to make it their own.

With the color yellow looking good on anyone’s skin, it does not discriminate.

It does not bound anyone by the definitions of ‘age appropriate.’ With the color

yellow, it becomes more about the choice of style and garment to compliment your

body and lifestyle.

Working at the office? A skirt is a great essential that (if long enough) can be

taken from the office to after hours. Pair a lemony-fresh yellow skirt with a black

or white sheer button-up and blazer for work. Remove the button-up to reveal an

equally tight tank or cami, and throw on some statement jewelry for after work


For weekend wear, look for a skinny ankle pant or a crisp spring short in yellow

for a casual cool. Colored denim or stretch cotton can be dressed up with colorful

florals and neutral footwear. Or dress down your look with your favorite T-shirt

and a cropped jacket.

And don’t forget about accessories. A fun way to incorporate yellow into regular

wear is through color-popping accessories. Sandwich and stack yellow rings and

bangles between metallics for a vibrant mixed-metal look. Use yellow as an accent

color with typical navy, black and white. Love scarves? Add a splash of yellow

to any outfit with a dazzling yellow scarf.

And let’s not forget the shoes! Don’t

be afraid of color on your feet! From

kitten heels to sexy heels, color will be

about putting your best foot forward.

But do not toss those black strappy

sandals just yet- they too will be

stepping into the spring season. Love

your boots? Still walk tall in your

wedges and platforms? Yes – you still

can for spring 2012!

Although it feels like it is already here, spring is just around the cor-ner! Itʼs time to start fresh with some Spring Cleaning!

1. Make sure you have all your supplies first. Nothing stopsprogress like a trip to the store for supplies. So make sure you haveeverything you need for everything you want to do. Have a gameplan and be prepared from the beginning.* A cheap and easy all-purpose cleaner is a 50/50 mix of water andvinegar.

2. Take it one area at a time. As one area gets clean, others geteven messier. Focus on one area at a time. Donʼt get distracted byother areas of the house as you tackle one room. It will be much moreproductive that way.* De-clutter the entire house before the real cleaning begins. It willsave time.

3. Clean each room thoroughly. Start at the top and finish at thebottom. Finish what you start, without an unfulfilled promise to do itlater.

* If you have to, split up the Spring Cleaning into sessionsthroughout one week. That way, you know you will be finished in oneweek, but donʼt have to rush to get it done.

4. Get rid of stuff. If you havenʼt used it in a year, get rid of it! Sellstuff on Craigslist, give it away to a friend, have a yard sale or donateit to Goodwill. Just because you donʼt use it anymore doesnʼt meansomebody wonʼt.* If any items are in bad shape, donʼt feel bad to throw them away.Sometimes things need to be purged.

5. Maintain the clean. The hardest part—maintaining—should bedone every day. Even just 10 minutes a day to do one simple task willhelp so next yearʼs Spring Cleaning wonʼt be so daunting and havethat dread factor.*Schedule a cleaning session into your schedule every day as if it ispart of your job. After all, have you noticed how clutter will wait onyou to be de-cluttered?

GET THE DIRT!6 Gardening Trends

By: Constance Craig Smith, Gardener1. Black is the new black

Whether it's lustrous black containers, stylish black garden furniture, black pebbles

or plants such as black bamboo and the exotic Iris 'Black Knight', black in all its forms

is for this year's fashion-conscious gardeners.

2. Grow plants from seed This is the year more and more of us will save money by growing plants from seed.

Many things, such as foxgloves, nigella, cosmos, larkspur and stock, can easily be

grown on a sunny windowsill. And connect with your neighbors by sharing seeds and

plant cuttings with them and swapping tips. Be a vendor at a local farmer’s market as

an exchange plant vendor. It will be fun and add to your enjoyment of the gardening.

It is another way to connect and exchange information.

3. Grow your own vegetables Sales of vegetable seeds have been soaring for the past few years. It is about

growing more cheaply, chemical-free and tasty produce in our gardens. Many things

can be grown in pots, including herbs, tomatoes, lettuces and even spuds. Mixing

vegetables among the flower borders makes gardens pretty and productive.

4. PlantingAnother step to thrifty gardening in the spring is getting your seedlings started. A

great way to plant your seedlings is in pots made from old newspapers. To do this, get

the newspaper moist. Using two containers that are the same size, line one with the

newspaper and press in with the other container. Remove the second container and let

the newspaper dry. Use this to plant your seeds, and when your plants come up and are

ready to plant in the garden, you can plant the newspaper pot and all. The newspaper

will decompose over time.

5. Tools, Pots and PlantersIf you don't have gardening tools or yours need to be replaced, start looking at yard

sales, thrift stores and secondhand stores. Unwanted household objects can be pressed

in to service as garden containers. Wooden crates, wine boxes and old baskets lined

with plastic all make classy alternatives to pots. Even dull plastic containers can be

jazzed up with a colorful coat of paint. You can use practically anything as a planter,

such as an old pair of boots or an old barrel or metal pail. Remember, recycle, reuse

and recreate!

6. WateringIf you are allowed to catch rain water in your area, this is the perfect way to save

money on watering your garden and yard. And another thrifty watering trick is to cut

the bottom off of liter soda bottles, push the neck of the bottles down into the ground

around your plants, then fill them with water. The water will soak in slower than just

watering with a sprinkler. Old newspaper is a thrifty option for mulch in the garden.

Shred a bunch of newspaper and place around the bottom of your plants. This will

help hold in moisture and heat.

When painting, test out the

colors by hanging swatches

on the wall at different

times of the day to see how

they look in different lights.

Take a cue from other

pieces in the room for the

perfect colors.

Before painting, wash and

rinse the walls with a 50/50

mixture of water and

bleach, repair any damage

such as holes and cracks

and apply masking tape (or

painter’s tape) around the

trim and prime it to keep

stains from bleeding


You are more likely to save

money with top-of-the-line

paint due to the fact that

cheap paint will take two

coats, doubling your costs.

Paint comes in a variety of

finishes, including glossy,

semigloss, eggshell, satin

and flat. Use glossy on

woodwork, use semigloss

or eggshell in areas likely

to get dirty and use flat to

hide imperfections.

Make sure you pick the

right applicators. Short-nap

rollers work better for

smooth walls while long-

nap rollers work better for

textures. Rollers with

slightly beveled ends stop

paint from dragging to other

surfaces. A nylon-wool

blend roller works best with

oil-based paints and an all-

nylon roller works better

with latex paint.

• An air bubble in wallpaper is a common problem and can be

solved with a glue injector. Simply cut a slit in the wallpaper,

squeeze seam adhesive under the bubble with the glue injector

and press out the extra adhesive.

• Adding storm windows does more than just reduce winter

heating costs. They also protect woodwork by keeping moisture

from dripping onto the frame and trim.

• Apply a light coating of spray starch to walls in high traffic areas.

It is much easier to clean up messes.

• Lighting in living rooms, bedrooms and dens have a standard of

1 to 2 watts of incandescent light per square foot of floor.

Kitchens, laundry rooms and workshops typically have 3 to 5

watts per square foot of floor. Bathrooms normally have about 6

watts per square foot of floor and 30 to 40 watts per running foot

of vanity. Divide the wattages by a third to meet fluorescent

light requirements.

Patient Scott Clark in a PET Scanner at Molecular Imaging Alliance in Gray, TN

A proud supporter ofKari’s Heart Foundation

KHC’s Spotlight on PET SCANSPositron Emission Tomography (or P.E.T. scan as it is commonly referred) produces high-quality, non-invasive images of the heart with unparalleled results: results that are clear, accurate and concise.

In Cardiology: PET is very helpful in determining the presence and extent of Coronary Artery Disease.Unnecessary invasive heart catheterizations can often be avoided with cardiac PET imaging due to its superior clarity and sensitivity over cardiac SPECT imaging which has long been the standard cardiac imaging procedure.

Now, physicians can identify the presence or absence of heart disease more accurately than ever before; plus, patients can avoid the lengthy procedure times associated with the traditional stress test. The PET stress test can be completed in as little as 45 minutes and only exposes the patient to a fraction of the radiation compared to a traditional stress test.

If your Healthcare Provider suggests a stress test for you, don’t settle for less. Request the best. Request a PET.

Do you have a wall in your living area

that you’re not quite sure what to do with?

Or are you looking for a unique and

decorative way to showcase your kids’ art

projects because there just isn’t enough space

on your fridge? I’ve got the solution for you!

This is Art Central in my house, for 4 kids

under 5-years-old: It has a chalkboard, a

place to hang the kids’ art by binder clips, a

place to frame more of their art, a magnet

board and a corkboard (made from many

saved corks!) to hold invitations.

You can create this, too! I started with just sheet rock that had

already been painted, and then I divided the area into thirds.

For the chalkboard, it is just chalkboard paint that was painted

straight onto the wall. The chalkboard paint comes in a variety

of colors at any home improvement store (and can be used for a

variety of other projects, too!).

The magnet board is a large piece of sheet metal cut from

Lowe’s or any other home improvement center. You can

paint it if you want but I chose to leave mine silver. The

sheet of metal was adhered directly onto the wall with a very

strong adhesive.

In the middle section, the kids’ art is hung from heavy

duty wire, kind of like wire that is used on the back of a picture

frame. It is pulled very taut and wound around screws on either

side. We have three rows of it, with about 12" of space between

each row. Above that is the corkboard, which was made by my

good friend Landy in a frame I had salvaged and painted gold.

To complete the look, the entire area was framed out with trim

to match the other molding in my house.

My kids love drawing in chalk, playing with the magnets and

seeing their artwork on display!

VEGAS NIGHTA benefit to support the mission of the Spine Health Foundation

On Saturday, February 25, 2012,more than 100 people attended Vegas Night – a

benefit for the Spine Health Foundation, Inc. (SHF). This was a special evening

marking the one year anniversary since the official “kick-off” of the SHF. Although

the SHF is still in its infancy, the organization is quickly gaining

attention and awareness throughout our region and beyond

because of its unique and innovative concept in terms of non-

profits. The SHF directly impacts the lives of people who suffer

with spinal disorders and need a helping hand. Since February

25, 2011, the SHF has provided specialized medical care to

seven individuals throughout our region.

Vegas Night was presented by Alpha Natural Resources, a

major contributor and supporter of the SHF. Other major

sponsors include Eastman Credit Union, Regions, Victory

Orthotics and Prosthetics, DePuy Spine, Solstas Lab Partners,

East Tennessee Brain & Spine Center, Blue Ridge Neuroscience

Center and Neuro-Spine Solutions, just to name a few. Ben

Zandi, Board of Directors President,opened the evening with an

energetic welcome to everyone who came out to enjoy this

special evening. The highlight of the event was the presentation of the 2012 Hope

Award. This is an annual award provided to an individual who has dedicated his or

her time to fulfill the mission of the SHF. Dr. David Pryputniewicz of Blueridge

Neuroscience Center, P.C. was nominated and awarded the 2012 Hope Award based on

his contributions and commitment of providing hope to individuals who suffer with

chronic spinal disorders.

The Ridgefields Country Club ballroom was festively decorated with just the right

amount of Vegas glitz byA Super Party. Once the casino tables were open for action,

eager card players were willing to try their hand at popular card games for fun and

laughs. Spirit of Soul Dance Band provided an electrifying show that music lovers of

all ages appreciate. And of course while in Vegas, you must enjoy the amazing food!

Troutdale Catering created a menu that would make any Vegas foodie come back for


Bart Long, auctioneer entertained the crowd

during the live auction with his comedic style, while

raising money for the foundation. The auction

offered a wide variety of items from Medical Day Spa

treatments, vacation resorts and outdoor adventures -

something for everyone.

The mission of the SHF is to provide education,

encouragement and healing solutions to

disadvantaged individuals who suffer with chronic

pain related to spinal disorders or injuries. The

foundation proudly recognizes their 19 supporting

physicians: a dedicated board of directors and

foundation advisors, led by Board President, Ben

Zandi. The SHF was founded by Executive Director,
