From the Craft Center To The Smithsonian

August 19, 2011
Chris Shea

The Smithsonian American Art Museum recently acquired three furniture pieces from former Appalachian Center for Craft student Chris Shea. The museum wanted the forged iron and cast glass works for its permanent collection of notable American craft and decorative arts. The two cafe chairs and arthropod side table by Shea will be on exhibit at the Renwick Gallery in Washington, D.C. beginning Oct. 1.

According to Shea, “The two and a half years I spent at the Appalachian Center for Craft gave me a great foundation of skills and knowledge that I still draw on every day. I’m grateful to have studied metal and blacksmithing under Professor Bob Coogan, worked in wood with Professor Graham Campbell, and for the many hours spent in the glass shop with Professor Curt Brock.”

“Objects in the Renwick Gallery have been a source of great inspiration to me for many years, living and working as I do in the Washington, D.C. area. I'm very honored and excited to have my work included in the nation's premier craft collection.”

Smithsonian curator Nicholas Bell commented, "Over the past 15 years, Chris Shea has developed a compelling design language that combines traditional furniture forms, muscular ironwork and luminous cast glass in ways that are at once unexpected and oddly organic.”

The cafe chairs have become a signature piece for Shea, with a form derived from traditional bentwood furniture but executed in hot-forged steel, with joinery details more common to large architectural ironwork than fine furniture. The seats are cast in thick contoured slabs of translucent green glass set directly into the iron. The table is of similar design, with the name “Arthropod” referring to the phylum of creatures such as insects and crustaceans known for their hard, segmented organic structures.

Chris Shea designs and creates furniture, sculpture and architectural metalwork at his forge and studio outside Washington, D.C. In addition to the Smithsonian American Art Museum's Renwick Galllery, his work has been shown at Wexler Gallery in Philadelphia, Woodson Art Museum, Houston Center for Contemporary Craft, the National Ornamental Metals Museum and at SOFA Chicago with Maurine Littleton Gallery. A native of Marblehead, Mass., Shea studied at the Appalachian Center for Craft in Tennessee and at Penland School. He holds a bachelor’s degree in English from Cornell University. Chris Shea's glass work is created in association with the Washington Glass Studio.

Suspect in Manchester Murder Convicted of DeKalb County Arson Last September

Jeffery Smithson

A man arrested as a suspect in the strangulation death of his 81 year old aunt in Manchester this week was convicted less than a year ago in a DeKalb County arson case.

49 year old Jeffery Owen Smithson pleaded guilty last September in DeKalb County Criminal Court to arson and received a three year sentence. He was given credit for time served and was placed on probation for the balance of the sentence. Smithson was ordered to make restitution and stay away from the victims in the case. He was given jail credit of 432 days from July 15th, 2009 to September 20th, 2010.

In the Manchester case, officers found 81-year-old Virginia White strangled in her home along Woodbury Highway around 8 p.m. Wednesday. Smithson had reportedly been staying with her, but he was not there when police arrived. Mrs. White's car was also gone.

The Manchester Times reports that Manchester Police in cooperation with Cannon County authorities apprehended Smithson at approximately 4 p.m. Thursday afternoon in the Ivy Bluff area of Cannon County.
Cannon County authorities spotted the 1989 Mercury Marquis that Smithson was alleged to be traveling in and called Manchester authorities.

Manchester Police Department investigators and Cannon County authorities approached the vehicle which was parked in the woods next to a bean field and found Smithson inside the vehicle. Smithson surrendered without incident after he was spotted sitting in the driver's seat of Mrs. White's 1989 Mercury Marquis.

Investigators said White recently took Smithson into her home to help him get back on his feet.
Reports say a concerned neighbor asked police to look in on the woman, and she was found beaten to death in the back bedroom of the house Wednesday night.

In the DeKalb County arson case, Sheriff Patrick Ray said detectives had been investigating Smithson for theft from a mobile home on Stoner Road near the Rollertown Road in the southern part of the county and through that investigation Smithson became a suspect in the arson case. He was charged on July 28th, 2009. Smithson allegedly went to the mobile home on June 28th, 2009, broke into the residence, and stole items from there. Smithson then allegedly set fire to the residence and fled. The fire caused extensive damage to the home.

Lighthouse Christian Camp Breaks Ground For New Widows Home

Sing for Joy Widows Home at Lighthouse Christian Camp
Groundbreaking for new Widows Home

Lighthouse Christian Camp is expanding its "Sing for Joy" Widows Home ministry.

Groundbreaking was held Wednesday for a second widows home. The first one was opened in 2006

Ben Chapman, President of Lighthouse Christian Camp, told WJLE Wednesday that he felt impressed to begin this ministry several years ago based upon the scriptural mandate of caring for widows. He said the goal and mission of "Sing for Joy" is to offer widows safe, independent retirement living with unlimited opportunities to serve in ministry. ‘God impressed on my heart some seven or eight years ago to do this under scriptural mandate to care for widows. The widows home here is called the Sing for Joy Widows Home. Its independent living for the widows that are in residence. It gives the widows the opportunity to continue to minister to others. Many widows today are so financially strapped, we wanted to relieve that financial burden and give them the opportunity to live in a place where they can be here full time. The children who come to camp here, they are all needy kids and the children are ministered to by these widows in our after school clubs, weekend retreats, and summer camps. The widows serve in many capacities. When we're serving meals in the dining hall, they're working there. They work in the office. They contribute in so many ways, giving them the opportunity to continue to feel fulfilled in their lives by ministering to others. God revealed to me that there's no greater compatibility than between an elderly lady and these children that are very needy. The widows can receive the blessing of children as well as the children receiving the blessing of these ladies that are there. We built the first widows home in 2006. The home has been full for over a year now. We have four apartments, a common area in the home, and the widows are independent in their own living. They take care of themselves. I've been asked often about when we would build a second widows home and my reply has been, when we have a waiting list. So we now have that waiting list. We started construction Monday and had a groundbreaking on Wednesday to build another similar home, almost identical to the one we have now, to house poor widows," said Chapman

Widows may continue to reside in the home as long as they can care for themselves, according to Chapman " They can be here until such time that they would not be able to care for themselves. We're not licensed like the Webb House to where we can provide any kind of physical care or medical care. So as long as they can care for themselves and can administer their own medications the widows home is available to them. We will provide transportation as needed. But all of our widows in the widows home now are able to drive and they take care of themselves. If they come to the place where they would not be able to do that (care for themselves) then we would assist them in finding other accommodations," said Chapman.

The widows in residence pay rent, but Chapman said the cost is kept to a minimum. "The rent is very minimal, about $100 per month is the rent. That's for most of the widows who are here now. Each apartment is metered and they pay for their own power bill, which is very inexpensive, usually no more than fifty to seventy five dollars per month. The widows have their own kitchen. They're able to take their meals in our dining hall when we're having camp or weekend retreats, they can eat with all the children. So their meals are furnished. But during the off season, during weekends, etc, they have their own kitchen. They're totally self contained to where they can prepare their own meals. The widows home also has a common area where the widows can come out of their apartments into a common area. There's a kitchen there. They can receive visitors and guests. The whole vision is that they can come out and take meals together if they so desire in the common area," said Chapman.

Each apartment is spacious, according to Chapman, with storage space underneath"The building itself is 80 feet x 40 feet deep and each apartment is very spacious. Some independent living areas that we have been in are not as spacious as ours are. Our apartments have a living area and kitchen combination, a private bathroom, and a private bedroom. It's a good size. Underneath the home, if they have other items that they wouldn't be able to get in their apartment, we have storage underneath the homes. So each of the homes has a full basement underneath with compartments for storage underneath," said Chapman.

If you would like to make a donation to help support this ministry, Chapman said it would be welcomed. "As always, we've had some donations that have just recently been made and that's the way things are always done here at camp. We always believe God and when He says it's time to move, we trust that the Lord will provide the funding necessary. So we're believing in God and as the funding comes, we'll be able to complete this home, hopefully by next March. We're hoping to get it under roof before Christmas and then through the winter we would finish it up inside and have it open by March 1. We already have a waiting list. We have a couple of widows who are already waiting to come. But we have two apartments right now that we don't have commitments on so if someone is interested we'd be glad to hear from you. Call here to get more information or if you would like to mail a check to support the ministry, our address is 205 Serenity Place, Smithville. We do have a matching gift offer available right now. Anybody who makes a gift to the Sing for Joy Widows Home, it will be doubled. If they give $100, $500, or $1,000, it'll mean double that amount coming to us because we have a matching gift. If you know of a widow in need, who is scripturally qualified, we'd be glad to talk to that person. You can call here, our number is 615-597-1264 if you need more information about possibly being a resident," said Chapman.

Willoughby Hires New Assistant Principals

Karen Knowles
Kathy Bryant
Sabrina Farler

Director of Schools Mark Willoughby has hired the new assistant principals.

Willoughby, who made the announcement Tuesday morning on WJLE, said that Julie Vincent has been hired as assistant principal at Northside Elementary School and Karen Knowles at Smithville Elementary School. Sabrina Farler, who has been at DeKalb Middle School asked for a transfer to become the assistant principal at DeKalb West School. Kathy Bryant will be moving from Northside Elementary to take Farler's place as assistant principal at DeKalb Middle School.

These assistant principals are needed, according to Willoughby, and they will help to ease the burden of increased teacher evaluations mandated by the state. "This is being done primarily due to the new evaluation system but really this is something that should have been done years ago. These are great people going into some needed positions and this will enhance the education of students in DeKalb county," said Willoughby.

Although a total of $225,000 was budgeted to fund those positions from the school system's BEP reserves, Willoughby said their salaries are not in the $70 thousand dollar range as some have speculated. The salaries actually range from $44,623 to $54,466. Contracts for the new assistant principals are for 10 months and two weeks.

Chuck Cagle of the Tennessee School Boards Association, who represents the DeKalb County Board of Education as legal counsel, talked about the new teacher evaluation requirements last week during a special county commission meeting. "We are now facing in education things that we've never had to face before and things about which we have very little control. Every school principal in your district has just watched the evaluations that he or she must perform increase by ten times. Prior to this evaluation system we evaluated tenured teachers twice in ten years and we evaluated probationary teachers for the first three years until they were eligible for tenure. Now, every teacher in DeKalb County schools will be evaluated annually, tenured teachers four times a year and probationary teachers six times a year," said Cagle

They were arrested after an investigation by a Sheriff's department detective assigned to the case.

49 year old Lisa Gail Caldwell was charged with driving on a revoked license on Tuesday, August 9. Her bond is $2,500 and she will be in court October 5.

Sheriff Ray reports that on Tuesday, August 9, Caldwell was stopped by a deputy who had prior knowledge that her drivers license were revoked.

Sheriff Ray reports that on Saturday, August 6, a deputy was behind a vehicle on Highway 56 north traveling south when he noticed the right tail light out. The officer initiated a traffic stop after crossing Hurricane bridge. The vehicle in front of the officer slowed down and started to pull over but then began to speed up, refusing to stop. The deputy activated his emergency lights and sirens and began a pursuit with speeds exceeding 75 miles an hour. After traveling some six to seven miles, the officer terminated the pursuit due to public safety. Upon further investigation, it was learned that Parsley was the driver of the fleeing vehicle.

In addition to evading arrest, Parsley was charged with reckless endangerment because his actions placed the public in danger of serious bodily injury due his high rates of speed and meeting on-coming traffic on the roadway.

A computer check of his license later confirmed that they were suspended for failure to satisfy citations in Wilson County.

Four days later on August 10 at around 5:00 a.m., an officer was called to check out a suspicious person on Lonnie Cantrell Road. When the man, Parsley, saw the officer he started running. The deputy ordered him several times to halt but he never slowed down. He was later arrested.

Bridge on Pea Ridge Road over Dry Creek
Bridge on Tramel Branch Road over Helton Creek

Work on bridge projects at Dry Creek and Tramel Branch Road will soon be completed.

Road Supervisor Kenny Edge told WJLE Monday that "the Dry Creek Bridge is basically built. All the sub-structure. All of the deck has been built and the rebar is all in place. It's ready for the concrete and that should be poured one day this week," said Edge.

"The Tramel Branch Bridge is already complete, except for the guardrails on the ends and some minor work. Some of them (motorists) have been moving the (Road Closed) sign and crossing it (the bridge). But really, it hasn't been completed and opened to the public yet," said Edge

"None of the roads (at either location) are blocked. Really everybody can get through there," concluded Edge

In February, the Tennessee Department of Transportation awarded a bid to Mountain States Contractors, LLC of Mount Juliet in the amount of $505,991 to build a new concrete box beam bridge on Tramel Branch Road over Helton Creek near Alexandria. The project includes grading, drainage, and paving.

TDOT also awarded a bid to Roads, LLC of Brentwood in the amount of $623, 963 to build a concrete I-Beam bridge on Pea Ridge Road over Dry Creek. The project includes grading, drainage, and paving. Once the new bridge is completed at Dry Creek, the old one next to it will be removed.

Both projects are being funded with 80% federal funds and 20% local matching money, including 14% from the DeKalb County Highway Department budget (state aid) and 6% from the county general fund.

An elderly Nashville woman died from injuries in a one car crash Saturday morning on Highway 70 east near the Gentleman's Club location.

Dead is 75 year old Gale Link of Nashville.

Link was a passenger of a 1997 Mazda Miata convertible, driven by 56 year old Eddie Doss also of Nashville. The top was down on the car at the time of the crash.

Central dispatch received the call at 10:31 a.m.

Sergeant Mark Dial of the Tennessee Highway Patrol told WJLE that Doss was traveling east on Highway 70 and lost control while negotiating a curve. The car skidded off the north side of the highway and rolled over crashing top first into a utility pole. Morning rains had made the pavement wet which could have contributed to the crash.

In addition to DeKalb EMS, members of the Midway, Short Mountain Highway, and the Extrication and Rescue Team of the DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department were summoned to the scene along with wrecker services from DeKalb Tire and Service, JR Motors, and Tim's Truck Service and Towing. The DeKalb County Sheriff's Department was also on the scene to help with traffic control.

Doss did not have to be extricated from the vehicle but Link was pinned in between the car and the pole. Tow trucks from all three local wrecker services were used to stabilize the car and then to pull it away from the pole so members of the extrication team could get to her. Link was removed from the car and taken by DeKalb EMS to the Midway fire station where a Life Force helicopter ambulance had landed to pick her up. However because her injuries were so serious, Link was instead taken on to DeKalb Community Hospital by ground ambulance. After being stabilized, Link was then airlifted to Vanderbilt Hospital, where she later died. Doss was taken to DeKalb Community Hospital by DeKalb EMS but he wasn't believed to have been seriously hurt.

Members of the DeKalb County Volunteer Fire Department wish to thank DeKalb Tire and Service, JR Motors, and Tim's Truck Service and Towing for their valuable assistance in the extrication of Ms Link from the car.

Although the investigation continues, Sergeant Dial reports no evidence of drugs or alcohol. Link's death marks the second traffic fatality of the year on DeKalb County roads.
