Knox the Dog & Charity Honeycutt

Charity Honeycutt of Honeybee Events is a premier wedding and event planner, a stylist, and a production set designer in Knoxville. As soon as the camera came out, Knox jumped in to make sure we all know he is the real star of the show - thus the top billing.

by Beth Patton


harity Honeycutt, born and raised fifteen minutes from Mount Mitchell in western North Carolina, came to Knoxville in 2008 for an academic meeting at UT. The interviewer commented that she looked athletic and her mom, Rebecca, proceeded to gush the many accolades of Charity’s track and basketball achievements. After the meeting, he promptly sent Charity to Coach J.J. Clark. He asked for Charity’s 400-meter time and said he could tell she could run by the way she walked. Charity walked out 45 minutes later as a Lady Vol. Charity received her under-graduate degree in retail and her masters in sports management before she decided the

corporate life was not for her. Her eye for high-end design on a low-end budget, her love for everything to do with weddings, and a little push from her mom gave her the confidence to jump in and start her own event planning business. In 2016 she planned Jordan Smith’s (winner of The Voice) wedding which was featured in People Magazine. She has since added designing sets for local production companies, HGTV, Travel Channel, and Discovery Network to her portfolio. Charity pulled off 30 weddings last year, she was the stylist and set designer for a John H. Daniels marketing campaign that featured Chris Blue, and she has worked with Patricia Nash, Laticia Rolle, Erin and

Ben Napier, and The Property Brothers Drew and Jonathan Scott to name a few. She is currently working on a private 600 guests event celebrating Philip Fulmer and the UT Athletic Department and the 20-year reunion of the 1998 National Championship. The theme of this party is classy tailgate and high-end man cave. She is recreating the 1998 locker room, setting up 5 art installs, 7 lounge areas, 5 food trucks, and coordinating a lot of other moving parts and logistics. The number one criteria for working with Honeybee Events is you must love her beloved dog, Knox, who is most always at her job sites. He is, after all, the boss.

ou know they say imitation is the highest form of flattery, but I’m not so sure. Now we all have seen a good idea and used it from time to time, but when is it too much? As many of you know, Hushh magazine launched its first issue three years ago. The goal was to showcase Knoxville’s “hidden gems.” There was a great amount of research put into the concept; from how the publication would flow and what the content would highlight, to how the tabs would indicate sections for the readers, as well as the fonts to capture your interest. Months of research went into the development over the course of three years, and continues to evolve to bring the readers a quality, easy to follow, and interesting publication. There has always been humble expectations for the magazine to stand out from others in the area. To be a publication that doesn’t exclude readers due to gender, social status or income; hence the reason that Hushh is a free publication and mailed to anyone who subscribes. Hushh consist of an extremely lean staff whom devote great amounts of personal time to ensure the standard of excellence Knoxville deserves. It is most assuredly a labor of love. So when countless hours of work is imitated on a regular basis, it is no longer _ flattering. - Rant over!

Out with the old, In with the new! Cosmetics are not only designed to help individuals improve their appearance, but they also can be used to treat various ailments and conditions. Millions of people enjoy the benefits that cosmetics can provide, and while cosmetics are largely considered female products, they re being used by men more than ever. Makeup, skin creams, ointments, and many other items can be found in homes across the world. People have had a bad habit of keeping beauty products long after these items are past their prime without realizing the limited shelf life. According to Jessica Wu, MD, an assistant clinical professor of dermatology at the University of Southern California, most beauty products are designed to stay fresh and stable for a limited time, not say, six years. Failure to routinely update makeup collections can result in products not working to their potential and even threatening health, as bacteria can hide away in containers and cause infections. The best way to avoid any issues is to regularly go through cosmetic products, tossing out old merchandise and buying new items when necessary. This can be done every few months

or at the start of the new year. The following is a listing of the shelf life of many popular items and when to replace them. •Unopened products: If you have some cosmetic products that haven’t yet been opened, they might remain stable for a couple of years at room temperature, according to chemists at Cosmetech Laboratories in New Jersey. Air can cause formulas to oxidize, and germs can be transfered to products when they are touched. •Eye products: Mascara and eyeliners make contact with the eye, an area of the body that is sensitive and vulnerable to infection. These items should be discarded every three to six months to prevent the formation of bacteria. Eyeliner pencils have longer shelf lives than mascaras because they’re being sharpened. •Foundation: Liquid foundations last around a year, and storing them in a cool, dark place will help them last even longer. After a year, the foundation could separate and its consistency may change. When applying foundation, avoid using your fingers, which can cause bacteria to build up more quickly.

•Body brushes and loofah sponges: Acne and infections on the body may be a result of products and beauty items that are kept in the shower. Constantly being wet and in a warm, dark place makes these items the perfect breeding grounds for bacteria. Discard these items every few months, and make sure they’re washed out and allowed to dry completely after each use. •Lip gloss and lipstick: People run the risk of mouth sores by using old lipsticks and lip glosses. Bacteria can easily be transferred from the mouth to these items. Generally speaking, it’s a good idea to discard lip products between six months to a year after purchase. What’s more, color changes can occur and the products’ quality may begin to degrade. If your products have been sitting around for a while, it’s time to buy a new collection, not just for safety and function, but because you deserve it!

Why You’re Burning Fewer Calories Than You Think Weight management comes down to simple math: calories in, minus calories out. But if you’re keeping track of your diet and exercise and still missing your goals, you might be getting some parts of the equation wrong. We tend to overestimate how many calories we’ve burned and underestimate how much we’ve consumed, making it difficult to hit those weight-loss goals. And even when you’re carefully tracking your meals and activity, you may be expending less energy than you think. Check out these five reasons your calorie burn might be smaller than you’ve estimated: 1. YOU’RE OVERESTIMATING YOUR WEEKLY BURN It’s important not to approach every day, thinking you can indulge with your food because you’ve put in a big, calorie-torching workout or assume every gym day will yield a big calorie deficit. An hour of strength training could end up burning around 200-300 calories, compared with about 500 calories burned during a long run. It could be helpful to think of your daily calorie burn as a weekly average. Going into the week, it’s a good idea to know what workouts you’ll do and factor those calorie burns into your eating plan.

toptechpicks 2. YOUR EXERCISE EQUIPMENT MIGHT BE LYING You hop on that treadmill, elliptical or cycling machine and watch the “calories” number tick up. Before you celebrate with a cheeseburger, remember these machines are often inaccurate, especially if you don’t input your weight before you start the workout. Everyone burns calories at a different rate depending on weight, heart rate and form, which means your favorite exercise machine may tell you you’re burning way more calories than you really are. 3. YOU’RE AN ACTIVE COUCH POTATO Sure, you had a great hour long workout this morning, but your intense cardio session can’t offset the effects of sitting all day at work. Find ways to incorporate standing or walking into other parts of your daily routine beyond your workout. Send emails from a standing desk, watch your TV shows while cleaning instead of from the couch, or make your next meeting a walking one. 4. YOU’RE GETTING BETTER AT WORKING OUT As you get in better shape and adapt to your training, your body will burn fewer calories in the gym. That’s a credit to you because it takes less effort to do the same workout when your body becomes more efficient. Keep track of the workout routines you’re doing, and increase intensity or distance every few weeks to continue progressing. 5. YOU’VE LOST WEIGHT This is similar to the previous point. When you drop pounds, your smaller body takes less energy to move around. Everything from doing dishes to running a marathon burns fewer calories. This is a great sign of progress, but it also means you may need to increase your estimated calories burned per day or adjust your calorie intake to continue losing weight.

WEIGHT LOSS TIME IN TENNESSEE!! Why is it so hard to lose weight? You may have asked yourself this very question time and time again. The truth is, there are many barriers to weight loss. These range from your healthcare provider’s office, to your place of employment, to your home, and within your own body. For instance, it’s time for your healthcare visit and you have gained a few pounds and know that you are in for the dreaded, “you need to lose weight…. it’s easy just exercise and eat less” speech. These suggestions are usually never followed by ideas about how to eat, when to exercise, and what options may be available to you. You leave

feeling as defeated as you did when you went. Maybe even feeling as if you were judged as being gluttonous or lazy. Time constraints placed on providers in today’s healthcare environment make patient education nearly impossible. Even though you have a job that requires you to sit all day, you are too exhausted to exercise when you are finished. You say to yourself, “I will start tomorrow or next week”, and those days never come. Unfortunately, most of our work environments are not conducive to encouraging any additional activity other than what is required to do our jobs. Work activity,

even in the most physically laborious job, is not enough to lose weight. Once you get home, chores of laundry, cleaning, cooking, chauffeuring your children to sports, etc. push you to the bottom of the totem pole. You think, “who has time for exercise and eating healthy, I’m in survival mode”. As you may have found, it appears that healthier food options are more expensive and you can’t budget for those expenditures. Sometimes, when everything is in place with exercise, nutrition, and scheduling you just get discouraged due to the inability to push through a plateau. Maybe you have an underlying metabolic or other issue that needs to be addressed. Weight loss is an area of healthcare that requires a multifaceted approach. As you can see, there are many barriers to weight loss. If you can relate to any or all of these challenges, we welcome you to a practice that specializes only in bariatrics, or the treatment and study of obesity. Because this is what we specialize in, we have the time to devote to you and your individual circumstances to help you be successful one goal at a time.

All of this is provided by a physician, nurse practitioners, and nurses. Over the last seventeen years, our practice has helped thousands of patients break through their barriers to achieve better overall health through sustained weight loss. There is nothing more rewarding than seeing a patient lower their blood pressure, improve cholesterol, reduce A1C, and perhaps ultimately reduce the number of medications taken. Most patients deeply desire to enjoy life by feeling great and not being burdened by disease. We look forward to partnering with you today. No goal is too big or too small. Come in to one of our seven locations, call, or visit our website to start your journey to a better you. Article written by Heather Whittemore, FNP-BC.

Remembering Legends and making New Ones

Tennessee Football: 20 Years of


Phillip Fulmer era (1992–2008) SEC rings for the 1997 Vols SEC and National Championship rings for the 1998 Vols 1993 saw the Vols complete a 10-2 season, losing to Penn State in the Florida Citrus Bowl. 1994 saw a down turn in the record of the Vols, but events shaped the bright future of the program. Starting quarterback Jerry Colquitt suffered a season ending knee injury in the first series of the season against UCLA. Backup Todd Helton suffered a similar fate early in the fourth game of the year at Mississippi State requiring backups Brandon Stewart and Peyton Manning to take action. The following week freshman quarterback Peyton Manning would take over the controls and not let go until he departed to the NFL. Manning would be a 4-year starter for the Vols, and he led them to an 8–4 record in 1994. The next season, Manning led the Vols to a 41–14 win over Alabama, breaking the long winless streak. The only loss of the 1995 season was a 62–37 loss to Florida. The loss to the Gators was the 3rd in a row, and would prove to be the major hurdle between the Vols and the National title. The Vols would put together 11–1, 10–2, and 11–2 seasons in the last three seasons with Manning as quarterback. Manning entered his senior season as a solid favorite for the Heisman Trophy. The trophy would eventually be awarded to Charles Woodson of Michigan. Manning did lead the Vols to an SEC title in 1997, before losing his final game to eventual co-National Champion Nebraska. After three seasons with high expectations, the Vols faced a new task. Tennessee was expected to have a slight fall off after their conference championship the previous season. They lost QB Peyton Manning, WR's Marcus Nash and Andy McCullough, and LB Leonard Little to the NFL. Manning was the first pick overall in the 1998 NFL Draft. They were also coming off of a 42–17 loss to Nebraska in the Orange Bowl, and were in the midst of a 5-game losing streak to their rivals the Florida Gators. However, the 1998 Tennessee Volunteers football team would prove to exceed all expectations. Led by new quarterback Tee Martin, All American linebacker Al Wilson, and Peerless Price, the Vols captured another National title and would win the first ever BCS Title game against Florida State. They finished the season 13–0, ending a remarkable run of 45–5 in 4 years. Those four seasons, the Vols were led by Fulmer, Offensive Coordinator David Cutcliffe, and Defensive Coordinator John Chavis. Cutcliffe took over at Ole Miss as a head coach following the 1998 regular season. After 1998, the Vols made three more trips to the SEC Championship Game with Fulmer as the head coach: 2001, 2004, and 2007. The 2001 team beat then head coach Steve Spurrier and Florida in ‘The Swamp’ 34–32, moving them up to #2 in most polls and giving them a shot at the BCS title game in the Rose Bowl vs Miami. But they would lose to underdog #21 LSU in the SEC Championship Game. In 2005, the team suffered its first losing season since 1988, going 5–6, fielding a nationally ranked defense but an anemic offense. Cutcliffe returned to the Vols as offensive coordinator before the 2006 season, which reunited the successful group of Fulmer, Chavis, and Cutcliffe. Tennessee rebounded to go 9–3 in the 2006 regular season, losing two heartbreakers at home to Florida and LSU. This earned a spot in the 2007 Outback Bowl, where they lost to underdog Penn State, 20–10. The 2007 season was the first in team history in which the Volunteers allowed 40 or more points in more than one game (3 times). The Vols’ defense did considerably better than expected with help from seniors Xavier Mitchell, Antonio Reynolds, and Jerod Mayo, and also from freshman Eric Berry.

They would eventually win the SEC Eastern Division title and would go on to play eventual National Champion LSU. The Vols would lose to the Tigers 21-14. After the SEC Championship, the Vols were invited to play the Wisconsin Badgers in the Outback Bowl on January 1, 2008, winning 21-17. On January 11, 2008, it was announced that Dave Clawson had been hired as the new offensive coordinator for the Vols by head coach Phillip Fulmer. He replaced David Cutcliffe, who moved to Duke University as head coach. Jonathan Crompton started at quarterback for the first four games of the 2008 season and went 1–3, after which he was replaced by sophomore Nick Stephens. B. J. Coleman was the third quarterback on the roster. Clawson’s appointment introduced problems with the Volunteer’s offense, leading to one of the worst performing offenses under then-Head Coach Phillip Fulmer’s career. The Vols posted a dismal 5-7 record in the 2008 season, resulting in Fulmer’s ouster at the end of the season, after a winning total of 152 games at his alma mater. Lane Kiffin era (2009) Tennessee would finish the regular season 7-5, earning an invitation to the 2009 Chick-fil-A Bowl against #11 Virginia Tech. Derek Dooley era (2010–2012) Expectations for the Vols entering 2010 were relatively low in part because of having a third head coach in two years, a young and lacking offensive line, and an unresolved QB issue just weeks before the season began. Junior QB Matt Simms, son of Pro Bowl and former Super Bowl MVP Phil Simms, was named starter for the Vols for the opener against UT-Martin. After eight games the Vols were 2-6, including a heartbreaking loss at LSU which ended in controversy.

to Missouri. The Vols earned their first bowl game appearance since 2010, finishing the season 6–6. UT announced they would play in the TaxSlayer Bowl, formerly known as the Gator Bowl, in Jacksonville, Florida against Iowa. The game was UT’s first January bowl game since 2007, beating the Hawkeyes 45-28, and marking the Vols’ first winning season since 2009.

Jones stressed the importance of rebuilding the football program itself, as well as the culture at Tennessee, and providing muchneeded coaching stability for the Vols. Jones also reiterated the significance to the team, UT, and the legions of fans of leading the Volunteers to their first winning season since 2009 and getting and winning a postseason bowl berth for the first time since 2010 and 2007.

2015 brought high hopes from the start after the strong finish in 2014. The Vols started off strong with a 59–30 win over Bowling Green. Next, the Vol faithful “Checkered Neyland” for a second time against #19 Oklahoma. The Vols gave up a 14-point 4th quarter lead and eventually lost in 2OT, 31–24. After a 55-10 victory against Western Carolina in which the Vols returned both a Kick and a Punt for touchdowns, the Vols traveled to “The Swamp” to play Florida. Late game collapse was the story yet again, as a debatable coaching decision was made when the Vols scored a touchdown up 20–14 and did not go for the 2-pt conversion. The Vols were able to drive down to attempt a 55-yard FG, but missed left by inches, losing 28–27. The loss would be the Vols’ 11th in a row against Florida. The Vols returned home and lost to Arkansas, 20–24 despite Evan Berry returning the opening Kickoff for a touchdown. The next week, Tennessee pulled out its first win over Georgia (38–31) since 2009 and its first win over a ranked opponent since 2013. Tennessee then traveled to Tuscaloosa to face Alabama. The Vols took the lead 14–13 with 6 minutes left, but allowed a touchdown on Alabama’s next drive, and could not convert on their final possession, losing 19–14. The Vols would finish out the season in convincing style, winning the rest of their games by a 175-81 margin, and finishing the season with 8 wins for the first time since 2007. UT announced that they would be facing #13 Northwestern in the Outback Bowl in Tampa, Florida at Raymond James Stadium on New Year’s Day; the Vols’ first appearance since 2007 and second consecutive bowl. Tennessee won the Outback Bowl in a blowout, 45–6.

In 2014, UT began the season with wins over Utah State (38–7) and Arkansas State (34–19). The next 6 games saw the Vols losing to four top-12 opponents, and to unranked Florida, when Vol fans “Checkered Neyland” Orange and White for the first time. The Vols then finished the regular season strong, starting when Joshua Dobbs replaced the injured Justin Worley as QB and led the team back from a 14-point deficit at South Carolina. The Vols went on to win 45–42 in overtime. Dobbs was then named the starting quarterback, and led the Vols on to two more wins, and a close loss

2016 brought the highest expectations, with many starters returning on both offense and defense Tennessee was the overall favorite to win the SEC East. After surviving a scare against Appalachian St. in the season opener at home, the Vols looked much better at the long awaited Battle at Bristol against Virginia Tech. Coming back from an early 14-0 deficit, Joshua Dobbs turned in a great performance and led Tennessee to an impressive 45-24 victory. An impressive victory would be followed with an underwhelming 28-19 win against

After Tennessee was soundly beaten by South Carolina 38-24, Dooley named true freshman QB Tyler Bray as starter for the next game against Memphis. The Vols found new life in their new QB in which Bray threw for 325 yards and 5 touchdowns. The Vols would make a remarkable stand throughout November going 4-0 to reach 6-6 overall and become bowl eligible. On December 30 the Vols faced North Carolina in the Music City Bowl which ended similarly to UT’s previous game with LSU. A loophole in the rules (a lack of a late game 10-second runoff) gave the Tar Heels one more second in regulation in which they would kick a field goal to tie the game at 20-20 and send it into overtime. After both teams scored touchdowns in the first overtime, Bray would throw an interception on UT’s first possession in the second overtime. UNC would cap it off by kicking the game-winning field goal to win the game 30-27. Overall, the Vols and Dooley would finish 6-7. The aftermath of UT’s bowl loss to UNC resulted in the NCAA applying the same rule as the NFL when it comes to too many players on the field as time expires. Butch Jones era (2013–2017)

Ohio the following week at Neyland Stadium. The next week Tennessee’s offense struggled to move the ball effectively against Florida. At halftime the score had Florida leading Tennessee 21-3. The second half was a whole different story. Dobbs came back to life and the Volunteer offense ran all over the suddenly ineffective Gators. Five straight touchdowns put the Vols firmly in control. Tennessee finished off the gators 38-28 bring an end to the Vols miserable losing streak to the Gators. The Vols would find more magic a week later in Athens between the hedges. A back-andforth game seemed over when freshman Georgia QB Jacob Eason found WR Riley Ridley on a long touchdown bomb with 10 seconds left in the game to put the Bulldogs up 31-28. Misfortune followed for the Bulldogs. An unsportsmanlike penalty for excessive celebrating, a strong kickoff return from Tennessee DB Evan Berry, and another Georgia penalty put Tennessee at the Georgia 43-yard line. Dobbs dropped back and launched a prayer to the end zone. It was answered by Jauan Jennings, who managed to get in front of the Georgia defenders and reel the ball in for the touchdown and the improbable victory. Tennessee was 5-0 for the first time since 1998. The hype would not last, as a week later the Vols fall to Texas A&M. Tennessee would spend almost all of regulation trailing the Aggies but stay in striking distance. Late in the 4th quarter with A&M up 35-28, Aggie RB Trayveon Williams broke out a huge run and was destined for the end zone. The Vols and Aggies stayed locked up after the first OT, but Joshua Dobbs threw a bad interception in the second to seal the deal for Texas A&M. The season then unraveled next week in Knoxville with Alabama coming to town. With injuries piling up on the Vols there wasn’t much to be done in a deflating 49-10 loss to the Crimson Tide. Hopes for the SEC East dashed in Columbia, SC with a gutting loss to the Gamecocks, 24-21. Rebounding with wins against Tennessee Tech and Kentucky, the Vols went into their game with Missouri trailing the Gators by one game in the SEC East. As the game began in Knoxville, Florida sealed the East on a goal line stand against LSU in Baton Rouge. The news at Neyland Stadium silenced the crowd. Even with the SEC East lost, Tennessee still had a chance to play in the Sugar Bowl. After handling the Tigers, all Tennessee had left was a favorable trip to Nashville to take on reeling Vanderbilt. Tennessee’s defensive issues hit a breaking point and the Commodore offense piled up massive yards on the Vols in a spiritcrushing 45-24 win. Tennessee finished the season with a win over Nebraska in the Music City Bowl and a 9-4 record. In 2017, a season hoping to put the Vols back on top in the SEC, would end up having the opposite effect. Butch Jones’s personality issues would begin to come to light after the Vols were eliminated from SEC title contention. In his press conference following the elimination, Jones downplayed the disappointment and instead said his players were the “champions of life”. Jones’s ignorance of Tennessee’s most coveted ambitions in championships would greatly alienate the Volunteer fan base and set Jones up on a very difficult stage for 2017. The 2017 season in Tennessee football will never be forgotten among the Volunteer faithful and for all the wrong reasons. Opening with wins against old rival Georgia Tech and Indiana St., Tennessee returned to Gainesville seemingly

with momentum against the Gators and hoping to erase the embarrassing choke from two years prior. In what would be a very ugly ball game, Tennessee and Florida would struggle the entire game to advance the football. Tennessee had a few chances to take control of the game but failed constantly. It would be a goal line stand that would start a downward trend for Tennessee and its season. With a 1st-and-Goal from Florida’s 1-yard line, Jones inexplicably called three straight passing plays. Tennessee QB Quentin Dormady would be intercepted on the third play. Even then, Tennessee gained another opportunity with less than a minute left in the game. Again, Jones would not give RB John Kelly the ball despite Kelly having a tremendous 141 yard rushing day. Another three straight broken up passing plays forced Tennessee to kick a field goal to tie game. The failure to win the game there would sting the Vols on Florida’s ensuing drive. Two weeks later, following an uninspired 17-13 win over winless UMass, the Vols were shut out at Neyland Stadium for the first time in 23 years with an embarrassing 41-0 loss to the surging (and eventual playoff bound) Georgia Bulldogs. The bleeding continued with another loss to South Carolina bringing Jones’s record against Will Muschamp to 0-4. Yet another blowout loss to Alabama in Tuscaloosa followed. Then the Vols lost a close 29-26 game in Lexington to the Kentucky Wildcats. It was only the second victory for the Cats against the Vols since 1985. A homecoming win over Southern Miss would brighten things up just briefly before losing to Missouri on the road, 50-17. For Tennessee athletics director John Currie, he had seen enough. Butch Jones was fired the day after the Mizzou loss. Defensive line coach Brady Hoke taking over as interim coach for two more losses against LSU and Vanderbilt respectively to finally end what was the worst season in Tennessee football history. The Vols went 4-8, losing eight games in a season for the first time in the program’s 121-year history. Jeremy Pruitt era (2018–present) After one of the most grueling searches for a head coach seen in college football, Alabama defensive cordinator Jeremy Pruitt was named the 24th head coach of the Tennessee Volunteers on December 7, 2017. The search began with then-AD John Currie leading the way. The day after Tennessee completed its 4-8 season with a loss to Vanderbilt, Currie was on the verge of hiring former Rutgers and Buccaneers coach Greg Schiano to be head coach and both parties had even signed a memorandum of understanding. The resulting backlash from fans, sports writers, and even gubernatorial candidates in the state to this news was immensely fierce. Tennessee fans all across social media scolded Schiano for his alleged role in the Jerry Sandusky scandal when he coached at Penn State in the 90s. Though the allegations were regarded as hearsay in court testimony, writers questioned Currie’s decision to bring Schiano’s background to the school in light of the university’s recent Title IX lawsuit settlements the year prior. Both Currie and Schiano backed out of the MOI and Currie found himself on the hot seat following the botched hire. Currie then proceeded to interview Oklahoma State head coach Mike Gundy, but was turned down. Next was Purdue coach Jeff Brohm, who agreed to a deal with Currie, but Tennessee executives nixed the agreement and Brohm turned down the reduced offer. Currie then interviewed NC State head coach Dave Doeren and yet again was turned down. Now desperate, Currie rushed out to Los Angeles, California to meet with Washington State head coach Mike Leach. Before a deal could be reached, Currie was summoned back to Knoxville by chancellor Beverly Davenport where he was subsequently fired. Phillip Fulmer took over as both acting athletic director and the coaching search on December 1. Six days later, Fulmer hired Pruitt to be the Vols new coach.

Leave No Trace The Traveling Trainers leave their mark by teaching the principles of Leave No Trace. by Jim McFarlin @Subaru Drive Magazine WHETHER YOU’RE PICNICKING in a city park, hiking through a state forest or camping in one of American’s majestic national parks, your goals should be the same: • Enjoy the splendor of your surroundings. • Leave behind what you find. • Keep the wilderness as wild as you found it, as if you were never there. That’s the vision of the Leave No Trace Center for Outdoor Ethics (LNT), the Boulder, Colorado-based nonprofit whose mission is to inspire us to protect natural lands for public recreation. Since 1999, Subaru has partnered with LNT on the Subaru/Leave No Trace Traveling Trainer program, which consists of four groups of two educators who crisscross the country in Subaru vehicles teaching people to appreciate the outdoors responsibly. Working with everyone from the general public to nonprofit organizations to governmental agencies, the trainers

educate via programs ranging from hourlong workshops to intensive two-day field courses. “It’s a terrific match,” says LNT executive director Dana Watts. “We share the same values. Because Subaru is who they are, an outdoor-oriented company whose customers value the outdoors, we share the same goals with this mission. And Subaru provides the means to help bring the message to the masses.” That message is passionately conveyed via Traveling Trainers like Donielle Stevens and Aaron Hussmann. Stevens and Hussmann met at an Earth Day rally, and have recently re-upped for a third one-year commitment to traverse American’s West Central States. Subaru also provides financial assistance for the teams, who interacted with an estimated 15.4 million people last year.

Camping out 250 nights a year isn’t everybody’s dream job, but Stevens and Hussmann say the rewards from their perpetual Outback road trip are invaluable. It’s particularly gratifying, they say, when they can make a positive impact at “hot spots” - specific pristine areas being overrun and damaged by visitors. “I think one of the best parts,” says Hussmann, “is seeing the light-bulbs go off in people’s heads when something about Leave No Trace clicks with them.”

Take a Drive


escribed as ‘the best drive in America’, the Blue Ridge Parkway is 469 miles of scenic highway with breathtaking overlooks and incredible vistas. Divided into four districts: Ridge, Plateau, Highlands and Pisgah, the road begins at the southern end of Skyline Drive in the Shenandoah National Park in Waynesboro, Virginia and ends at the Great Smoky Mountains National Park in Cherokee, North Carolina. The southern end of the parkway rightfully boasts superior intrigue and beauty while the northern end attempts to push the propaganda that this assessment is an urban myth.

Linn Cove Viaduct Milepost 304: Dubbed as an “engineering wonder,” this 1243-foot concrete segmental bridge snakes around the slopes of Grandfather Mountain. The visitors’ center and bridge museum are at the south end of the viaduct. A 1-mile (round-trip) paved hiking trail, beginning at the visitor’s center, leads underneath the Viaduct so visitors can view how the bridge almost floats in the air without disturbing the land below. This trail also points to the 13.5-mile Tanawha Trail which connects to the Blue Ridge Parkway trail network. Also, while you are here, swing over to Grandfather Mountain’s Mile High Swinging Bridge, America’s highest suspension footbridge.

Explore! Orlean Hawks Puckett Cabin Milepost 189: Orlean Hawks Puckett (1844-1939) was a midwife who had little formal education but delivered over 1,000 babies from 1890-1939. Her unique story of strength and goodwill began with the marriage to John Puckett at the age of 16. Although she lost all of her 23 children days after giving birth (likely Rh hemolytic disease), she began traveling around the region delivering babies with compassion and skill - never losing a mother or baby and never charging for her services. She moved from her log home in 1939 due to the Blue Ridge Parkway construction and died three weeks later.

The History

Waterrock Knob

Drive the Blue Ridge

Mount Pisgah

Construction on the then-called “Appalachian Scenic Highway” began September 11, 1935, and took over fifty-two years to complete. President Franklin D. Roosevelt authorized the construction in 1933 to provide jobs during the Great Depression. The Linn Cove Viaduct, near Grandfather Mountain, NC, opened in 1987 as the final section completing the continuous 469-mile passage.

The Blue Ridge Parkway has approximately 18 million visitors a year but yet is rarely overcrowded. With every twist and hairpin turn of the parkway through 29 counties, are over 200 breathtaking overlooks, 27 tunnels through solid rock, 168 bridges, and 6 viaducts. To experience the full 469 miles of the parkway with frequent stops at the inns and lodges, restaurants, visitor centers and historic sites, takes a minimum of three days to drive. However, there are several lane or road closures at this time for maintenance (eloquently called ‘pavement preservations’), and there will be closures in the winter in the higher elevations and tunnels. Check out roadclosures.htm before you set out for road, trail and facility closures.

big game = baked wings for the win! Sporting events provide great opportunities to gather with friends and family and enjoy some time together while watching a favorite sport or big game. Such gatherings are not complete without food, and some foods are widely considered staples of gameday get-togethers. Chicken wings are among the most popular gameday foods. While many 34

chicken wing afficionados might insist on frying wings, this beloved dish can be baked. In fact, Chef Kevin Gillespie, author of “Fire In My Belly” (Andrews McMeel), felt like he could create a baked chicken wing dish that even the most ardent wing connoisseur could not resist. The result is the following recipe for “Baked Hot Wings”, which home cooks can whip up in time for this year’s big game. shop | style | home | fit | active | drive | outdoor | eat | art | events


baked hot wings

INGREDIENTS 24 chicken wings, a mix of drums & flats, [2lbs] 1 tblspn grapeseed oil 1/3 cup sriracha chile sauce 1/4 cup malt vinegar 1/4 cup soy sauce 2 tblspnS sugar 2 cloves garlic, [very thinly sliced] 1/4 cup scallions, thinly sliced on the diagonal

[Makes 2 Full servings]

1. Preheat the oven to 500 F. 2. Pat the wings very dry with a paper towel. Heat a large (14-inch) cast iron skillet or two smaller cast iron skillets over high heat until smoking hot. Add just enough of the oil to coat the bottom of the pan. Using tongs, set the wings in the pan in a single layer with the meatiest side down. This will help render the fat. Cook the wings for 2 minutes, then transfer the skillet to the oven for 5 minutes. Carefully remove the skillet from the oven and, using tongs, flip the wings over. Continue baking until the wings are cooked through and the juices run clear, another 10 minutes. 3. Combine the sriracha, vinegar, soy sauce, sugar, and garlic in a small saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat, then cut the heat down to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes. Pour the sauce into a large bowl and toss in 1 tablespoon of the scallions. 4. Carefully remove the skillet from the oven and, using tongs, transfer the wings to the bowl and toss with the sauce. Transfer to a platter and garnish with the remaining 3 tablespoons scallions. Enjoy!

How can you tell if a beer is made by a U.S. craft brewer? Look for the independent craft brewer seal on the packaging. The independent craft brewer seal was launched in June 2017 by the Brewers Association, publishers of CraftBeer. com. The Brewers Association (BA) is the membership organization dedicated to promoting and protecting small and independent craft brewers in the United States. The BA defines a craft brewer as small, traditional and independent. The logo is designed as an upside down beer bottle, which symbolizes how the U.S. craft beer movement has literally turned beer on its head worldwide. As of fall 2018, more 3,700 craft brewing companies had adopted the seal — representing more than 80 percent of the volume of craft brewed beer. When you see the seal, it signals “That’s Independence You’re Tasting.” Global beer makers are purchasing formerly independent craft brewers, so knowing which breweries are independent is confusing for beer lovers like you. The independent craft brewer seal is helping cut through the confusion. “Beer lovers really care about who makes their beer,” says BA Director Paul Gatza. “What this provides is a clear message to the beer drinker that this beer comes from a small and independent craft brewer.” When you’re shopping for beer, look for the independent craft brewer seal. You’ll spot it in a variety of places, including on packaging and labels, at events, on tap handles, menus and websites. When you see it, snap and share a photo on Instagram and add the #seektheseal hashtag. editors are looking for your photos, and we’ll be sharing them on our social channels and here on this page. Scroll down to see some of the most recent seal pictures from breweries, beer writers and beer lovers. Join the movement and #seektheseal.

LOCAL MUSIC SPOTLIGHT Written by: Cody Stiner


o let me tell you why this is everything.



caught up with Trey Williams of “Crowns”, one of Knoxville’s most exciting alternative metal acts. Band Members Mat Harmon - vocals Trey Williams - vocals Michael Clester - guitar Matthew Isaac - guitar Morgan Higginbotham- bass Daniel Holtkamp - synth/programming Patrick Haynes - drums/composition

Trey: Our new video for “A Full Surrender” is out now! We would like to thank Alan Collins for taking the time and effort to make this song come to life with his fantastic capability as an Editor and Director. He did an amazing job. Also a huge thanks goes out to Envied Clothing for the support they provide, including the location for this video shoot. Most of the members of Crowns have been in other local groups over the years, how do you feel about being called a local “super-group”? T: I would definitely say that I’m extremely lucky to be making music with these guys. Patrick and Mat specifically were in bands that I looked up to in my early days in local music, but one thing I love about Crowns is that each member brings something to the table. Your music is a masterful blend of the melodic and heavy. is any single member primarily behind the writing or is it a collaborative process? T: Our drummer Patrick is also our producer and main writer. Everything is recorded and mixed at his house, but everyone has been a contributor in the bands writing process at one point or another throughout our time together. The video for your single “A Full Surrender” dropped 3 months ago and I’m still jamming it. Tell us about the production for the video and why you decided on “A Full Surrender” to get the full video treatment.

T: Thanks!! We got to work with the insanely talented Alan Collins. We filmed the video in a shed in our friend’s backyard. We actually had the police called on us and tell us to stop during Patrick’s drum shots, but we ended up continuing anyway! Your merch designs feature some pop culture homages. Tell us about your inspiration for the art style on your merchandise and the art featured on “Faint Reflection”? T: We recently had a preorder for a shirt paying homage to the anime “EScaflowne”. The reason I chose that piece is very simple: I’ve become a bit of a nerd in that aspect. I listen to a lot of hardcore, and one of my favorite trends is where bands have been ripping off anime art for band merch. The art that we used for Faint Reflection was actually drawn by our guitarist Michael! He’s an insane tattoo artist (and artist in general). Are you guys currently working on new music? When can we expect new tracks? T: We just recently finished a self-titled EP and will be announcing a release date in the next couple of weeks!






From Couch Players to Seasoned Pros, this Club’s for YOU! Guitar League to Launch Knoxville, TN Chapter A new chapter of Guitar League is being launched in Knoxville, TN on October 15, 2018. The local chapter of the national organization will be managed by area musician, Theresa Phillips. “We are excited to offer guitarists of all skill levels an opportunity to learn, share and play. Novices and rusty players are very welcome.”, states Phillips. The Guitar League will meet the 3rd Monday of each month from 6:30 to 8:30 PM at Open Chord Music Venue, a wonderful performance space, cafe and music store in Knoxville. Guitar League was founded in 2005 in Syracuse, NY as a “club”

for members to share the joy and challenge of guitar ( The “League“ idea comes from a baseball metaphor, catering to all skill levels including Rookies, Minors and Majors. “Guitar League was started as way to have fun learning guitar with new friends. You grow with it.” states Jim Horsman, Guitar League co-founder. “It’s been a big hit in Syracuse for 13 years and we thought it was time to spread the joy to other communities. We’re delighted and honored to work with Theresa and Open Chord to launch a chapter in Knoxville.” At each meeting, the main presenter spends the first hour sharing a 50/50 mix of performing and discussing their craft, something truly unique in the entertainment industry. Next, members

split into breakout sessions for interactive learning and playing based on interest and skill level (Rookies, Minors, Majors). Breakout sessions include useful skill development such as

alternate tunings, blues progressions, classic lead riffs, chord options, recording techniques, songwriting tips, to name a few. “Our members always come away excited by something new they’ve learned,” states Dick Ward, cofounder of Guitar League. The first meeting of Guitar League Knoxville will be free and open to all. The Main Presenter and breakout sessions will be announced shortly. Breakout sessions will be designed to fit the varying skill levels (Rookies, Minors and Majors). Attendees are encouraged to bring their acoustic guitar. A prospective member’s first meeting is alway free to test-drive the organization. Membership is $75/year for 12 monthly meetings (average $6/ meeting). The Knoxville chapter of Guitar League is the fourth chapter of the organization, with a chapter starting soon in Atlanta, GA others in the works throughout the country.

In my search to find out more about the local “Makers” of Knoxville, I came across Bolt Electric. From his own words get to know Bolt too. As a musician-owned small business, our goal has always been to provide the highest-quality musical products and top-shelf service to our customers. The enthusiastic wordof-mouth and repeat business this philosophy garners has built Bolt Electric into the small-batch creative enterprise it is today, and things are still evolving. It’s currently a three-headed beast, so whether you have a custom pickup, amplifier, repair or other project, we’re thrilled to work with people as passionate about gear and music as we are. But who are we, and why are we here? Bolt Electric began in 2009 in Knoxville, Tennessee. After reaching burnout factor: 10 from touring and performing — a focus that had been my life on and off since the mid-’90s — I decided to channel my obsession with music gear and electronics into something different. I began focusing on the backstage, so to speak, and immersed myself in handcrafting one-off guitar pickups for friends, then offering them to local customers. Pickups had been a constant fixation for me over the years, and I’d been making my own and using them on the road for some time. As word of my custom winds spread, I made things more official and began selling my own line of humbucker and single-coil models as Bolt Electric Pickups. Pickups weren’t my only fascination, though. I’m fanatical about old tube amps and have long reveled in the opportunity to study the circuits of amplifiers I own, eventually repairing

them for myself and providing servicing and modification for other touring-musician pals. Good amp techs are hard to come by, so this didn’t stay quiet for long — calls started pouring in for repair work and we quickly developed a backlog that warranted shifting a significant portion of the Bolt Electric focus to servicing. This spawned Repairs by Bolt Electric in 2011, a small repair operation centered around vintage tube amplifiers and instruments. I found the work thrilling, and still do. Years of servicing some of the best gear ever allowed me to hone my craft, studying and documenting component interactions and the sounds that made these amps legendary tonal benchmarks. In 2013 I started drafting my own original tube amplification designs, and 2015 saw the launch of Bolt Electric Amplification, a proper vehicle for our amplifier creations. Our first original model, the Black Phantom, was unveiled at the 2015 Nashville Gear Expo and is now available for purchase, with two other models currently in development. And that brings us to Bolt Electric Sound, a virtual home that pulls together all we do — pickups, amps and repairs — into one place. As we head into the second half of the decade, we’re excited about the future and encouraged by the great musicians and retail shops we’ve been fortunate to work with … and we look forward to working with you! – James / Bolt Electric

Josh Cottrell

Josh Cottrell has recently gained a steady following after being featured in Knoxville, Tennessee’s Market Square Summer Concert Series, as well as gaining a spot on one of the extremely popular alexrainbird Music YouTube compilations.

The 26 year-old, Knoxville native loves to tell a story with his music. That effort was definitely reflected in the 2017 album “Making My Own Way.” Songs like “The Captain” and “Lie to Me” take a step outside the songwriter’s perspective and create an enticing world of their own. I had the pleasure of seeing Josh Cottrell during the Summer concerts on the square series back in June. I sat down with Josh to see how his new music is coming along and get a little update for his fans. Cody- You have been relatively quiet on social media lately. What is going on in the world of Josh Cottrell? Josh - I’ve kind of hung back behind the scenes over the last few months. I guess it’s not really been intentional, the cards have just fallen that way, more or less. Since August of last year, I joined a band in an attempt to “broaden my musical horizons,” so to speak. While it’s been a huge blast getting to write and play music with them, it’s also been taxing as far as balancing time between the band and my solo career. However, you can still see me out and about, doing my thing and bringing out new material as I get time to write it. Speaking of which, I’ve been working with the the fantastic team over at Auralation Studio in Knoxville. I’ve had the privilege to be featured in two of the team’s “Live from the Cave” episodes on YouTube, which was a lot of fun to get to shoot. Beyond all that, I’ve been learning more about finding the balance between music, marriage to my beautiful wife, Megan, and

attending classes at MTSU in pursuit of an audio production degree. So, yeah...I’ve been behind the scenes, but I’m far from gone. Expect new and exciting things from me in the VERY near future! Cody - Your recent style has matured in terms of song writing. What artists are you currently drawing inspiration from? Josh - I’m drawing influence from guys like Matthew Perryman Jones, John Mayer, Jason Mraz, Erick Baker, Ron Pope, Peter Bradley Adams, and Dave Barnes. Cody - You’ve worked with some great names in regards to production. What your writing process like for your new music? Josh - When I started out, I could just sit and start playing guitar, and lyrics would just come to me. As I’ve matured in life, my writing process also changed. Now, it’s when I’m not anywhere near a musical instrument that I am inspired to write melodies and lyrics. My newest song, “The Ride,” was completely inspired and breathed into existence from inside my car. I drive

a lot, and I saw a chance to be honest with my listeners, which is something I always strive for in writing my songs. Life in general has just been really good about allowing me the growth I’ve needed to change up my writing process and to replenish that “creative well” with experiences to draw from. -Cody Stiner


Years Tennessee Theatre invites community to celebrate ‘90 Days for 90 Years’ 90th anniversary events include Sept. 30 gala featuring bluegrass musician Alison Krauss, most-awarded singer in Grammy history. The Tennessee Theatre turns 90 years old on Oct. 1, 2018, and to commemorate the milestone, the Official State Theatre of Tennessee is celebrating over a period of 90 days. From Sept. 29-Dec. 31, the public is invited to attend and engage with the theatre through special anniversary events; giveaways; free tours and open houses; and a curated social media campaign that will include historical photos, fun facts and more. “As we recognize 90 years of Tennessee Theatre history, we’re celebrating the memories and beloved experiences of millions of patrons, movie-goers, concert attendees, donors and friends,” Tennessee Theatre Executive Director Becky Hancock said. “The theatre experience truly is a community experience. That’s why we’re extending the 90th anniversary celebration over 90 days, sharing unique experiences, free activities and fun information for everyone.” Anniversary weekend events kicking off the 90 Days for 90 Years celebration include: - Saturday, Sept. 29: Party Prohibition-style with a nod to the Roaring Twenties, when the Tennessee Theatre first opened. The 90-Year Speakeasy event includes dancing, themed cocktails and more surprises at the majestic downtown theatre. Tickets are $90 plus service fees. - Sunday, Sept. 30: Beloved bluegrass musician Alison Krauss returns to the Knoxville stage for the Tennessee Theatre 90th Anniversary Gala. In addition to recognizing the theatre’s past 90 years, the event will raise funds for the non-profit’s ongoing preservation and free community events. VIP tickets, which include prime seating, reception and silent auction, are $250. Concert tickets are $85 and $65 plus service fees.


- Monday, Oct. 1: Mighty Musical Monday, the Tennessee Theatre’s free monthly daytime event featuring Mighty Wurlitzer organ performances, coincides with the theatre’s actual 90th anniversary date. In addition to celebrating the theatre’s opening in 1928, this very special Mighty Musical Monday also will honor Dr. Bill Snyder as he retires as the theatre’s House Organist, a position he has held since 1979. Doors open at 11:30 a.m., and the event starts at noon. Brown bag lunches and snacks will be available for purchase, or guests may bring their own lunch. - Monday, Oct. 1: The evening will feature a lineup of on-screen entertainment typical of the Tennessee Theatre’s early years as a movie palace. Patrons will enjoy a vintage cartoon, timely newsreel, comedy short, Mighty Wurlitzer organ performance and screening of a vintage film from the 1920s. The program begins at 7 p.m. and admission is free, but patrons are welcome to bring 60 cents as a symbolic purchase of a 1928 opening-day ticket. The Tennessee Theatre officially opened as a movie palace on Oct. 1, 1928, showing “The Fleet’s In” starring Clara Bow. Nearly 10,000 people attended, and guests also enjoyed a newsreel and musical performances including the Mighty Wurlitzer organ. Throughout the next 90 years, the Tennessee Theatre changed and evolved, struggled and flourished, and after undergoing a nearly $30 million renovation, officially reopened Jan. 14, 2005, as a dazzling entertainment palace with 21st century technical amenities and a fully restored decorative interior. Shortly following the renovation and reopening, Krauss and her talented band, Union Station, performed as part of the theatre’s first subscription series, selling out two shows on the Tennessee Theatre stage. The 90-year history of the Tennessee Theatre is rich with stories of performers, patrons, parties, poignant events and pop culture.

“Mark your calendars and stay tuned for more announcements, as we have many fun things planned to celebrate this incredible milestone,” Hancock said. “We are fortunate to have a community that has supported us all these years, and we look forward to seeing everyone at the Tennessee Theatre during 90 Days for 90 Years!” Theatre staff have been gathering firsthand accounts of these memories from the public and key individuals, capturing and preserving the oral history and impact of the Official State Theatre of Tennessee in Knoxville and beyond. Those stories will be shared in person, on social media and in other ways throughout the anniversary celebration and beyond. More activities, tours, stories and surprises will be shared throughout the 90 Days for 90 Years celebration, and a full list of events is available at Follow the Tennessee Theatre on social media for regular updates, using #90daysfor90years: @tntheatre on Twitter, Tennessee Theatre on Facebook, @tntheatre on Instagram and tennesseetheatre on Spotify. For ticketed events and performances, purchase tickets online at, call the box office at 865-684-1200 or visit the box office on Clinch Avenue during regular business hours. Leading sponsors for the 90th Anniversary celebration include Delta Dental of Tennessee, Pilot Flying J and AC Entertainment, among others.
