Win a trip to someplace interesting or meet Vanna White! See Theresa’s column on page A-3 Loopers for lunch Dr. Bob Collier had an uninvited guest at dinner just the other night. “Well,” Bob says, “uninvited to me; unwelcome to Grandma. Upon aiming for my first bite of salad, I spied something walking down the right sleeve of my shirt. Not walking, exactly, either, but getting along by a mode of travel the caterpillar people call “looping” – front feet out and down, bring the back ones up, repeat. “Yep, a nice, vigorous inchworm was heading down the sleeve, trying to get to the salad bowl ahead of me. They must be fond of salad.” ➤ | A great community newspaper VOL. 6 NO. 15 ➤ See Dr. Collier’s story on page A-6 SHOPPER ONLINE All shook up! Jake Mabe extends a heartfelt thanks (“thankyaverymuch”) to those who called or wrote last week sharing memories of Elvis Presley. Powell guy David Hunter reminded Jake of a tale about Elvis and Cas Walker. Elvis made a brief whistle stop in Knoxville, most likely when he came home from the Army in 1960. David said Cas decided, as a prominent Knoxvillian, he needed to go down to say hello. Says David: “That evening, Cas was trampled by teenage girls. He showed up on the ‘Farm and Home Hour’ the next day, battered and angry about outof-control youth.” See Jake’s column and more at April 9, 2012 Westgate’s grand opening By Theresa Edwards Westgate Christian Fellowship celebrated the grand opening of its new location at 1110 Lovell Road on March 31 with a kids Steinbach carnival, teen mania, barbecue dinner and egg hunt. There was a 10:30 a.m. church service on April 1 led by Pastor Mark Steinbach. The church began in November 2006 on Sunny Lane in northwest Knoxville. From 2007 to 2008, the congregation met at the Howard Johnson Motel. Their next meeting place was West Hills Elementary School from 2009-2011. Last November, they moved to their newest location on Lovell Road. However, it was in need of much repair. With the completion of the renovation, the church was ready for their grand opening prior to Easter Sunday. Pastor Mark Steinbach and his family moved to Knoxville from Nebraska in 2005 to plant churches here. He helped start Cedar Point Church in Maryville, then Westgate Christian Fellowship in Gabe Groover enjoys the inflatable slide at the kids carnival at Westgate Christian Fellowship’s grand opening.

Saturday’s participants wore T-shirts with three words on the back to sum up their motto according to Steinbach: Simple (love God, love each other), Relevant (ministry that matters), Real (real life, real needs, real God). In addition to regular services, the fellowship has “life groups,” small groups which meet throughout the week on different nights. For example, on Friday evenings some families get together. “In a hightech, low-touch society, we’re trying to encourage face-to-face interactions,” Steinbach said. The church has about 75 members and is growing, with an invitation to the community to visit.

The firetruck garnered attention from many children who had fun sitting in it; starting it up; going for a short ride (driven by the fire fighters); trying on helmets and other gear; squirting water from the hose; and seeing the jaws of life and other tools.
