Rooney presents How the West Was Won trophy Knoxville Catholic wins award for second time


The sixth annual farragutpress How the West Was Won contest presented by 3 Minute Magic Carwash features a traveling trophy, a point Julie Gunter was making to Knoxville Catholic High School football’s banquet audience. Gunter, farragutpress advertising representative, was suddenly but politely interrupted. “It’ll be staying here,” Steve Matthews, KCHS varsity football head coach, said about HWWW trophy during the banquet’s early agenda Sunday night, Jan. 10, in KCHS gymnasium. While Matthews expressed confidence that earning the 3Minute-sponsored trophy would be a recurring event, Gunter spelled out the details. Catholic earned the farragutpress hat trophy based on its 7-3 regular season record, best among HWWW Tennessee Secondary School Athletic Association Division I contest opponents Farragut and Bearden high schools, Hardin

Valley Academy and Christian Academy of Knoxville. Jim Rooney, 3 Minute Magic Carwash owner, briefly addressed the audience before presenting the trophy to Matthews. “Congratulations coach, congratulations students, players, parents, teachers for your outstanding success this year. We are very proud of you,” Rooney said. In reference to Matthews’ opening remarks about his team overcoming adversity during games and players earning special recognition for success in the classroom, Rooney said, “I really enjoyed your remarks coach, they were positive. I though that was outstanding about what it takes to achieve great things, relentlessly positive people working together as a team. “I brought my daughter [Brittany] with me tonight, and she asked me on the way over, ‘What do a small business and a sports team have in common?’” Rooney added. “I like to associSee HWWW on Page 4A

Farragut business vehicles with signage whose owners say theydo not make a habit of parking near main roads, and as a result are not being cited by town of Farragut as “billboard” violators, include The Shrimp Dock and owner Phil Dangel.

Town ‘billboard’ ordinance questioned ■ ALAN SLOAN

A Farragut business owner publicly took issue with how some businesses “get around” the Town’s sign ordinance, using their vehicular signage primarily as advertising while parked along main roads. “There seems to be a double standard is what I’m saying. Some people are getting away with it,” David Purvis, a member of Farragut Economic Development Committee and co-owner of Farragut Wine & Spirits along Kingston Pike, said during EDC’s Nov. 6 meeting. “Less than a dozen” businesses have been warned this fiscal year (since July 1) that were deemed violators of vehicular

sign ordinance, Mark Shipley, Town’s interim Community Development director, said. One is Silo Cigars. Owner Paul Warner — whose has featured a “M-35-A3 deuceand-a-half” camouflaged military truck with “Silo Cigars” painted on either side while regularly parked along the business’s Kingston Pike location since May 2013 — shared e-mails where he’s been warned by Shipley. “What they said was it doesn’t meet the Town’s definition of a typical delivery vehicle,” Warner said. “I’ve requested three times for Mark to provide me a definition of a typical delivery vehicle, and have yet to be provided with a ‘here’s what a typical delivery See BILLBOARDS on Page 5A


Farragut area fathers and daughters of all ages can buy tickets in advance for the Ninth Annual Shamrock Ball, slated from 7 to 9 p.m., Saturday, March 8, at Farragut High School Commons. “It’s wonderful,” Tanya Alles, Farragut Kiwanis Club president, said. “It’s so much fun, and it’s precious to see all these fathers and daughters dress up. They have such a good time dancing.” Farragut Kiwanis Club and the town of Farragut are sponsoring the evening of music and dancing. “The town of Farragut helps us put it together, helps provide equipment and volunteers to help with ticket sales and food,” Alles said. During the event, fathers and daughters can dance to a disc jockey mix, provided by Gann’s Entertainment, make a craft together and enjoy refreshments provided by volunteers. “The chocolate fountains are a huge hit with the kids, and we will probably do crafts again this year,” Alles said. Also, there will be a photographer taking photographs of fathers and daughters. Advance tickets are available beginning Monday, Feb. 3. They are $15 per couple and $5 for each additional person and are

‘Rental property’ ordinance draws fire ■ TAMMY CHEEK

An ordinance that would allow rental buildings in single-family neighborhoods drew fire from Farragut residents creating tensions between members of Farragut Municipal Planning Commission and Board of Mayor and Aldermen. During FMPC’s meeting Thursday, Dec. 19, the commission placed the proposed ordinance on its agenda Thursday, Jan. 19, and plans to take action on it. “I don’t want to see anything that affects our covenants and restrictions,” Walt Hanson, of 319 Quail Point Road in Concord, said. “I hope the overlay doesn’t apply to existing subdivisions.” K r i s t i Hulsey of 11724 Weath Drive in V i l l a g e G r e e n Subdivision said her community is concerned about the Hulsey ordinance opening a floodgate, where someone would place a rental dwelling in the neighborhood, and the renters would struggle to follow the bylaws. She was one of several homeowners who voiced their objections to having an overlay district in their existing subdivisions. Singletary F o r

instance, Mike Singletary of 309 Lawton Blvd., president of the Fort West subdivision, said he wanted assurances the ordinance would not impact to an existing subdivision such as his. “I feel it would be detrimental in our neighborhood,” he said. “My community does not permit outbuildings or accessory buildings.” Planning Commissioner Ed St. Clair also voiced his objections to the ordinance. “I think we need to nip it in the bud,” he said. Mayor Ralph McGill replied, “I say, dump it [the proposed ordinance].” Alderman Jeff Elliott, who spoke as a resident, said he also is against the ordinance. “I don’t see a particular reason for seeing it taking place,” Elliott said. However, Alderman Bob Markli said he was baffled by the objections. “There is the assertion I have a stake in this [ o r d i nance],” he said. “I have Markli no stake in this. I am familiar with this situation. It’s something I have been a proponent of for years. “I think there is a real need here,” he said. “There is a subdivision that has offered to be a guinea pig. Ten years down the road I think there will be a demand for it [rental dwellings.]” The discussions started after Mark Shipley, interim communi-

guestview: Gov. Bill Haslam As we begin a new year, it’s a good time to look back at where we’ve been and ahead to where we’re going. In Tennessee we have a lot to be proud of. We balance our state’s budget each year and do so without raising taxes. We have the Bill lowest debt of any Haslam state in the Tennessee nation and Governor the third lowest overall tax burden per capita. Tennessee ranks first in the Southeast and 10th in the nation for personal income growth and second in the Southeast and eighth in the nation for job growth. One of our top priorities has

been to make Tennessee the number one state in the Southeast for high quality jobs, and we have a lot of momentum. Since January 2011, more than 130,000 new private sector jobs have been created here. And while I don’t believe government creates jobs, I do believe it is state government’s role to make sure Tennessee offers an attractive business climate to attract new investment and encourage existing businesses to grow and expand. Last year, we updated our worker’s compensation laws, streamlining the process and making it more equitable to both employees and employers. That came on the heels of overhauling our tort laws to provide more certainty to business and other efforts such as expanding captive insurance opportunities for companies. Part of an attractive business climate is also a well-trained an educated workforce. Tennessee has become a national leader in


education innovation. Last November Tennessee was named the fastest growing state in the nation in education gains. After years of ranking in the 40s in education, we’re solidly in the 30s and getting close to reaching the national average, so we still have a lot of work to do. As we’ve asked more from our students and teachers, we want to be sure we’re compensating the leaders of our classrooms to reflect the professionals they are. Now that we’re the fastest improving state in academic achievement, our goal is to be the fastest growing state in raising teacher compensation. Our state’s commitment to education is preparing more Tennesseans for high-quality Tennessee jobs, but we still have more work to do. Currently, only 32 percent of Tennesseans have a certificate or degree beyond high school, and studies show that by 2025 that number needs to be at least 55 percent to keep up with job demand.

That’s why we launched our “Drive to 55” initiative last year, which includes the following: The launch of WGU Tennessee, an online competency-based university aimed at the 940,000 adult Tennesseans who have some college credit but didn’t graduate with an associate or four-year degree. The creation of a $47 million endowment from the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation (TSAC) designed to provide nearly $2 million each year for “last dollar” scholarships to fill the gaps between students’ financial aid and the real costs of college that include books, supplies, room and board. The launch of the SAILS program (Seamless Alignment of Integrated Learning Support) that prepares students for college by intervening and eliminating the need for remedial courses — a program that will save students time and money while raising their likelihood of completing college work.

Legislation by Sen. Mark Norris (R-Collierville) and Rep. Gerald McCormick (R-Chattanooga) that created the Labor Education Alignment Program (LEAP) to better coordinate key stakeholders on the state and local level to address workforce readiness issues. New online learning innovations through partnerships with edX and Coursera. You will hear more from us in the coming weeks about our Drive to 55. We have enjoyed a strong working relationship with the legislative branch, and as the return of the 108th General Assembly approaches, we look forward to working with legislators on the important issues that matter to Tennesseans including jobs, education and a more efficient and effective state government. There are a lot of good things happening in Tennessee, and I am committed to building on our progress in 2014.


• It is Sunday night, just saw a story on the news about the [restaurant] employee who asked a mother to remove her child’s squeaky shoes because they were disturbing other patrons in the restaurant. [The restaurant] was so quick to make a statement assuring that the employee was new and that they do not discriminate against any of their patrons ... . Asking someone to stop being rude is not discriminating. I can see fear is the motivation behind that state-

ment, fear that they might lose money if they offend possible would-be-customers from coming in, who cares about the customers who enjoy going to [restaurants] to eat on regular visitations. You see this same spineless attitude at the Farragut Library while more oft than not some kid begins to screech and whine relentlessly while their mothers wait in line to check out 35 books for junior to take home. The poor kid is tired of waiting after all, that’s

understandable, but what is not acceptable is the mother, who does nothing to quiet the little tyke, no matter that the entire building is having to listen to this poor child carry on. Oh no “we” must be tolerant to this child’s tantrum-meltdown that not only lasts for 2-3 minutes but at times can go on longer. Do you ever hear the librarian tell the mother to please control her child or step outside as the other patron are trying to enjoy the quiet of the library? NO, of course not,

and why is this? Well I have it on good authority by friends who work at the local Knoxville libraries that they are not “allowed” to ask anyone to be quiet ... now that is just plan funny. Have they forgotten they work in a LIBRARY? You see they are fearful of losing their jobs if they exercise their authority to shush anyone. Who cares about the rest of us, we have to be “tolerant,” our comfort is of no importance. What in the world has happened to manners in this

country and doesn’t anyone know that tolerance works both ways, getting your way at the expense of the other person is not fair or doesn’t that matter either? Oh please someone else sound off on this lack of social graces, I can’t be the only one with a brain in this Town. Oh and just so you know I mean what I say, so don’t go trying to turn this around and make it something else.


One example would be a flood plane overlay regulations over commercial zone regulations. The proposed ordinance would have an overlay allowing accessory dwelling units. That unit could be a rental building. “On this whole subject, I’m rather dismayed and puzzled because Aug. 17, you folks took a vote and the jest of it was you didn’t want to proceed any further with this,” said Ken Frazer, who lives at 217 Village Green Parkway. “And, here we are now in December and we’re still talking about it.”


After the presentation, Matthews thanked Rooney then reiterated, “We’re going to make sure this trophy never leaves Knoxville Catholic.” Prior to the ceremony, Matthews said, “We’re just ecstatic to get the award, and thankful for farragutpress and 3 Minute Magic Carwash and everything they do by covering high school football and giving these young men recognition.” A handful of Irish players commented about winning the 3 Minute trophy, giving the Irish a way to compete against Farragut and Bearden despite not playing

either in 2013. Saying he had a cousin playing at Farragut and “a couple of friends” playing at Bearden, senior offensive tackle Nick Natour added, “It’s an honor wining this. Bearden and Farragut are great schools.” Senior wide receiver Harrison Huber said, “It’s an honor to get that award. Some of those schools are huge compared to us.” Senior linebacker David Hamilton said, “We worked hard, and I’m happy to be recognized with that award.”

ty development director, proposed the amendment to the language of Chapter 3 of the Farragut Zoning Ordinance. It would create an overlay concept in which the Commission and Board could allow accessory dwelling units within single-family residentially zoned neighborhoods. Singley said with an overlay district, the overlay is a layer of additional requirements or allowances on top of a base district, such as R-1 or C-1.

ate our business, our company and ourselves with winners. This is our fifth year sponsoring this award. “We do the same as your football team does, we have hard work and dedication. We want to win as well.” Including the program’s three playoff wins, “Congratulations for winning 10 games, and I’d like to present this trophy to you on behalf of 3 Minute Magic Carwash,” Rooney said to Matthews.

vehicle looks like.’ “The current vehicular sign ordinances seem to be randomly enforced,” Warner added, listing a handful of other businesses that have signage vehicles regularly parked along Kingston Pike and Parkside Drive. “I am currently, I guess, under the gun to have my vehicle removed. They sent me a letter in early December that it needed to be removed by midnight, Dec. 31, or face $50 a day penalty.” As of mid-January, Warner’s truck remained along Kingston Pike. Moreover, “I do make deliveries, I do take my truck out for special events,” he said, adding he needs a big truck “capable of putting an armoire-sized humidor into.” However, “On a daily basis, no,” Warner said. “If I have a vehicle that size, where am I going to park it? Am I going to park it right in front of my front door? Probably not. It makes sense to take the furthest spot from the front door as a courtesy to my customers and everybody else’s.” Town’s Visual Resources Review Board is “looking into” beginning the process toward

VRRB is scheduled to address the matter again during it’s Tuesday, Jan. 28 meeting. Shipley said VRB could vote “to make an initial recommendation to the [Farragut Municipal] Planning Commission.” Farragut Sign Ordinance Chapter 4 under Prohibited signs (n) states, “Signs attached to, suspended from or painted on any vehicle which is regularly parked on any street or private property when one of the purposes of so locating such vehicle is to display, demonstrate and advertise or attract the attention of the public.” Shipley confirmed the Town currently is monitoring a few businesses along main roads such as Kingston Pike and Campbell Station Road.

BHS band ‘top two’ in N.C., Ga. ■

Bishop’s ministry takes off on Twitter


This beautiful full color tab will feature information to help area Brides plan the perfect wedding ... their own!



In addition to impacting middle and high school youth as a student ministry intern at his home church, West Park Baptist, Jake Bishop’s Christian ministry is taking off on Twitter. Bishop’s focus on ministry stems from “an awakening” following a career-ending shoulder injury as a junior varsity quarterback at Campbellsville University in Kentucky. It happened early during his freshman season. “That was a tough time. I always wanted to play college football, that’s what I always dreamed of doing,” said Bishop, a 2011 graduate of Hardin Valley Academy whose Twitter account has “risen to almost 30,000 followers.” “That’s just classic Jake, he went all in. He just saw that as an opportunity. … There’s not too many folks around here who have 28,000 followers on Twitter,” Derek Griz, West Park pastor to students, said. However, immediately after the shoulder injury, “My world felt like it was all crumbling down,” said Bishop, HVA football team’s quarterbacks coach who also reaches out to roughly 15 HVA players by leading a 30-minute volunteer weekly Bible study. That runs after fall practices or workouts from January through the end of football season in the fall. “I made football an idol really. … When I lost it, it was frustratSee BISHOP on Page 7A

white people, and he had a dream his four children would get equal education,” Farragut Primary School second-grader Madelyn Tilley said. “I know how he stood up for freedom and how everyone should be treated fairly,” Farragut Intermediate fifth-grader Andrew Doane said. The fifth-grader added he learned King preached that no one is different from anyone else and that he’s famous for his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech. “He [King] was an African American who didn’t like segregation,” Farragut Primary School second-grader Audrey Fey said. “He stood up for black people,” Elli Kohlmyer, a Farragut Intermediate School fifth-grader, said.

Bearden High School Marching Band’s success during three major fall 2013 competitions was “revolutionary,” never experiencing a finish lower than second place. Under the leadership of coband directors Megan Christian and James Wilson, Bearden’s program, Revolution, produced “top two placements in every category at every competition,” Christian said about a band “with more than 150” members. The final competition, Peach State Marching Competition in Rome, Ga., Saturday, Oct. 26, with “over 25 teams” according to Christian, “Was the best one because it should be the best one in regards to just how much they progressed throughout the semester.” There were some teams from Alabama. “The kids ended, and I hate to use a pun, on a high note.” Reflecting back, “We do get a lot of awards and a lot of trophies, and we are really blessed,” said Christian, in her ninth year at BHS. “But the thing that always sticks out for the kids is how they feel the process went as they got to that end point. “And you could tell with that last performance they felt really good about it because of everything that had happened before it,” she added. “And you could tell that when they were finished with

Farragut students learn the significance of MLK ■


Farragut school children are learning the significance of Martin Luther King Jr. Day and why they have no school Jan. 20. Recently, some Farragut students shared what they know about King. “I started to learn a little bit about it in preschool because my friend came over on Martin Luther King Jr. Day and told me why she was out of school. Then every year since preschool, I have learned about it more and more and sometimes I would research it,” Caroline Carr, Farragut Intermediate fifth-grader, said. “Martin Luther King Jr. is a man who wanted to make the world equal between black and

Smith, FIS secretary, earns Caring Hearts Award ■


With 10 years volunteer service for Variety Children’s Charity of Eastern Tennessee, Alva Smith received a special surprise after being asked to serve as a special events volunteer one evening last fall. Smith, in her fourth school year as a part-time secretary at Farragut Imtermediate School,

was presented Caring Hearts Award during a ceremony Tuesday, Nov. 19, at the local movie premiere of “Hunger Games” at Regal Cinema Pinnacle Stadium 18 off Parkside Drive, Turkey Creek. The award inscription included recognizing Smith’s “countless hours of helping to improve the lives of children East Tennessee.” “It was a surprise. They told me I would be helping host a special needs child, which I did, but I had

no idea I was receiving the award,” Smith said. “… From what they said when they gave the award, I’m the first recipient of this award here in East Tennessee.” “I think Smith Ms. Smith

has a gentle spirit and she’s so sincere,” FIS principal Kay Wellons said. “And truly interested in giving something to her community. “She did share with me that no matter where she lives, she always volunteers and looks for a way to give back to the community in which she is residing,” Wellons added. “In our school office, I know she looks for ways to help, always. “She has asked me many times,

and the other office workers as well as teachers, ‘Is there something I can do for you?’ “So I would say she certainly has the heart to serve others and to give back. And we are just so proud of Ms. Smith and this welldeserved honor.” A native of Chicago who moved to West Knox County 18 years ago, Smith is a former Tennessee See SMITH on Page 11A

It’s time to talk

Mark Markham was one of hundreds who took advantage of Free Flu Shot Saturday, Sept. 14, in Farragut High School Commons. Administering the shot is Margaret Heins, a registered nurse volunteer and advisory board member with The University of Tennessee’s School of Nursing.

Tips to battle flu season

I loved a testimonial I read from a woman who had allowed her disorganization to get the best of her and her home but suddenly it occurred to her that she was making progress! She said that once she realized she’d made progress, she felt renewed and eager to continue making her home peaceful. I think most of us want a clean, cozy, peaceful, and loving home. I know there ARE people who don’t care, but I’m sure you do and that caring is an important part of having your home that w a y . Another important part is to see and acknowledge your progress. (If you Pam haven’t Young m a d e Make it progress it might be Fun! time to set your timer for 15 minutes and have a talk with yourself. Take notes. You will be surprised at what you’ll find out.) When you acknowledge your

successes and give yourself credit for them, you automatically give yourself energy. When you put yourself down you inadvertently sap energy from yourself. Think how good you feel when you get a compliment from someone; did you know you can get that same good feeling when you compliment yourself? When we appreciate and love ourselves we don’t need to get it somewhere else like from another person, or from food. The woman’s testimonial was filled with high voltage positive energy because she recognized her progress and it made her happy. That energy overflowed to all of us. It made me happy! We have been brainwashed to look for what is wrong rather than for what is right. Imagine seeing Angelina Jolie on the cover of People Magazine and note in your mind’s eye a big, angry, juicy zit (oh this is fun) on her cheek about the size of a dime. If such a photo was on the cover, most everyone who saw it at the check-out counter would zero in on the zit leaving the rest of her flawless skin ignored. Angelina would for sure be angry they didn’t brush it out in post production. Now imagine Angelina’s face covered in zits except for a dime-

sized spot on her cheek that is clear. My guess is you would not notice the clear spot! Start noticing the clear spot. And when you do, tell yourself how happy you are with yourself. (Tell yourself out loud if you are alone, otherwise think it to yourself.) We’re not used to giving ourselves praise, so it might feel funny at first, but if you’ll get in the habit of appreciating YOU, you’ll discover you don’t need praise from anyone else. Your success is in your hands but it starts in your head in that miraculous mind of yours. Take some time to show yourself some gratitude. If your New Year’s Resolution was to get organized, maybe it’s time to reframe that resolution. How about saying to yourself, “I’m going to be kind and loving to myself and acknowledge my progress every day in 2014.” You’ll be surprised what will happen this year!


“In May 2012 is when it really just started taking off. … A lot of it will be Bible verses, a lot will be lyrics to worship songs. … I’ll quote Christian authors. “Or just thoughts God has put on my heart recently.” As for Twitter feedback, Bishop said, “It seems like every day I’ll get some random message from somebody I don’t even know, just saying things like, ‘This really helped me today’ or ‘thank you for posting that, that’s exactly what I needed.’” Nathan White, HVA junior and Hawks starting quarterback who is among the Bible study group, said Bishop “sets a really good example for how to live your life right.” Griz said Bishop’s West Park

ministry to roughly 250 youth included a mission trip to Charleston, S.C. plus “Bible study Wednesday nights, and throughout the year Jake’s doing everything from helping lead a retreat for students to leading service projects. “And just on his own he leads a college Bible study on Sunday nights,” Griz added. “Jake has been exemplary. He’s passionate.” Zachary Conant, a high school student in West Park’s youth ministry, said about Bishop, “We’re able to see where he was at in high school and just how much God has grown in him. “And how he can relate so well to what we’re going through,” Conant added.

As the weather gets colder, there are ways that people can work to stave off sickness. A few tips are good advice year round, such as hand washing and not going out when one is sick, Rachel Bowman, family medicine physician with Tennova Primary Care Farragut, said. “The No. 1 way to prevent infectious disease is hand washing, so hand washing is very important for preventing just transferring germs, especially when you’re out and about in the public,” Bowman said. More specific to the cold weather months, and very important, is taking a flu shot, Bowman said. “The flu shot, there are different formulations,” she said. “If people don’t like shots, there’s a mist that goes in your nose. And for people that are over 65 or have certain high-risk conditions like diabetes, there’s a high-dose flu shot.” A common misconception revolves around the flu shot, she said. “The No. 1 misconception I hear in my office is that people think the flu shot can give them the flu, but the truth is it just doesn’t work that way,” she said. “The flu shot can sometimes make you feel bad for a day or two. You may get some symptoms of a low-grade fever or soreness in your arm or feel tired,

but that’s because your body is going through the process of making its defenses, making antibodies to the flu virus, so that if you get the flu, you’ll already have antibodies. ... Basically there can be some side effects, but it cannot actually give you the flu virus.” The flu season can change from year to year, she said. “Some years it doesn’t start until January or February, but other years, it starts as early as October,” she said. If people took a flu shot this past January or February, they need to get another one, she said. “There’s different strains of the flu every year,” she said. However, people getting a flu shot now will be protected throughout this entire flu season, she said. Seasonal allergies have cropped up with the weather change, she said in an Oct. 31 interview. “We’ve had a few cases of the flu, not very many yet,” she said. “We haven’t really had anything in particular, actually just seen a lot of upper-respiratory infections that aren’t the flu. Sometimes it’s not the flu virus. It’s another virus. But we’ve seen a lot of upper-respiratory infections. East Tennessee is bad for allergies, so when the weather changes, a lot of people seem to have their allergy symptoms flare up.”

ing, but it made me realize how important my relationship with Jesus is,” Bishop added. As for his Twitter success, Bishop said, “I remember freaking out when I hit a thousand followers. Since then I’m not really able to explain it.” A junior taking online courses through Liberty University (Lynchburg, Va.) with plans to enter the ministry, “About a year and a half ago I started thinking, ‘What better way to do that than social media,’” Bishop, 21, said. “Do different tweets to try and glorify God.

FHS grad completes 11-month mission

Christin Lyle, right, and Tess Cervenka take a lighthearted break while working with children in Kenya.


Christin Lyle was a highly successful owner of an insurance agency in Nashville, not lacking for career prestige or personal conveniences. But saying she was “an alcoholic and addicted to pills” — that her Christian faith was mostly motivated only “to avoid going to Hell” — an accident changed the life of this 2005 Farragut High School graduate. “I had a really bad car accident [February 2012] and should have died. … I walked away with just a concussion. It shook me to the core,” said Lyle, adding she completed “a mission trip called the World Race” in August after selling her insurance agency and moving back to Knox County. “It’s 11 countries in 11 months” feeding and caring for the poor while carrying a Christian message, she added. The trip “changed me from the

inside out, and I don’t think I’ll ever be the same.” Countries visited were Nicaragua, Guatemala, Honduras, Philippines (before the deadly earthquake), Cambodia, Malaysia, Thailand, Kenya, Uganda, Swaziland and South Africa. “I had no idea how big God was,” Lyle said. “I didn’t realize just how big the world is and all the poverty — and yet there’s so much joy among all the pain. “There’s so much suffering, and it caused us to stop looking at our own problems and ourselves and start looking out at how we can pour love and joy into other peoples’ lives,” Lyle added. For example, “When I was in the Philippines, we were living in the slums. We lived on a church floor and the rats would crawl all over us,” Lyle said. “The Manila River would flood … it would dump dead bodies and sewage.” However, “It was the best month See MISSION on Page 11A

Kelly’s classmates gave him a standing ovation. “Without the support of my teammates and coaches, none of this would have been possible,” added Kelly, whose sister, Clarke, is a football cheerleader (junior) at the University of Alabama. “… I want to thank my parents

Divided among Southeastern Conference loyalties, a Farragut home is united in high grade point averages and a love of football on Fridays and Saturdays. Starting with his long breakaway touchdown runs as a 7-yearold CBFO Junior Hopper, Todd Kelly Jr.’s Friday night performances at Webb School of Knoxville have vaulted the two-time state Division II-A Mr. Tennessee back (running back/defensive back) to a special status: becoming the school’s first-ever U.S. Army AllAmerican selection. Sporting a 4.1 grade point average despite a rigorous Webb curriculum, Kelly played for the West, one of only 90 East and

Thank you, U.S. Army, for your sacrifice and dedication.” In addition to his stellar play at safety, Kelly’s 3,160 yards rushing (9.8 yards per carry) and 72 touchdowns during his Spartans career was a big reason why Webb won three Division II-A state titles during Kelly’s four years. Sgt. 1st Class Joe Burgess told the gathering, “Todd embodies the characteristics and values of an Army Strong soldier, and we are proud to have him on our team. See KELLY on Page 11A

The best time to test is during consistently cold weather, usually from October to March. This is the time of year when doors and windows are shut, so the test results are more representative of in-home exposure.

HOSA helps FHS students ■


Farragut High School’s Health Occupations Students of America members helped fellow FHS students have a happier Thanksgiving. The club joined forces with other clubs to collect food for Thanksgiving baskets, which are then given to families of FHS students in need, explained HOSA President-Elect Karli Rist. “It’s an absolutely amazing public service because they [students] are working on their own time,” said Dr. Jan Hahn, a teacher instructing HOSA members.

“It’s HOSA’s main community service event,” Rist said. “We’ve been doing this for a long time. A bunch of different clubs from our school [Annually] are involved.” She explained different clubs have certain boxes they do, and HOSA has a box. They will make up 60 boxes in all. “We have around 30 families in our school who need boxes for Thanksgiving,” Rist said. “Each family gets two boxes each.” “It’s a collaborative effort,” said Grace Baek, HOSA president. “HOSA puts it together, but the whole school helps out. “It’s really awesome because a

lot of other community service groups don’t focus on their own communities, but at Farragut High School, we do this because we are directly serving our own community,” Baek said. She added the project also puts priorities in perspective for the students involved. “We take for granted having Thanksgiving dinner, and this shows not everyone is as fortunate,” said Kendall Clay, HOSA secretary. “We really place value on this opportunity,” Baek said.

“He wanted freedom for them [Black Americans] and he did a walk with a lot of [Black] people and stood up for their beliefs and what they thought they wanted to happen and not being enslaved,” Kohlmyer said. When asked what enslaved meant to her, she said, “Kind of like treated unfairly.” “He was a black man who didn’t like the arguments between black and white people, so he tried to stop it,” Farragut Primary secondgrader Cooper Alleman said. Eliza McWhirter, another FIS fifth-grader, said she learned King “stood up for [Black] people.” She remembered learning

African-Americans “would have a walk and try to defend their rights; and people, like firemen, would like spray hoses to make them go away.” “What I know about Martin Luther King Jr. is he is famous for his ‘I Have a Dream’ speech to talk about how [Black] people should not be separated from white people just because of their skin color, and you should never judge a book by its cover,” Carr said. “[King] was always standing up for what he believed in, and wasn’t afraid to stand up for what he believed in.” “Martin Luther King Jr. is an African-American man who waned to end slavery,” Farragut Primary School second-grader Julia Mason said.

Travis LeDoyt has been called “the best young Elvis in the world,” and there are four good reasons why; 1) he looks like Elvis; 2) he sings like Elvis; 3) he moves like Elvis; and 4) his personality and mannerisms both on and off stage are strikingly similar to Elvis. Travis flawlessly captures the essence of Elvis in his prime, and restricts his shows to the hits and ambience of 1954-1959.

Littleton returns home as lawyer, then LCUB head


Former city attorney for Lenoir City government and exattorney for Lenoir City Utilities Board, M. Shannon Littleton said running a utility as general manager “has gotten so complex that … it’s been a good fit Littleton for an attorney to be in this role.” Assistant general manager for the first seven of his 13 years at LCUB while serving as GM the past three, Littleton, 40, said his job “has been a good role for me primarily because I really like people. I like to serve.” “And being a public servant in this position, I get to enjoy the satisfaction of delivering essential services to the general public,” he added. Littleton manages “the seventh largest utility in the TVA system … and 40th nationally,” he said, providing power, water, sewer and gas to 60,000 customers in four counties, in addition to roughly 1,800 miles of LCUB electrical cable located in Farragut and West Knox County. “It’s a very complicated process,” he added. “Technology advancements have made it increasingly complicated. There seems to be a new set of issues and problems on a daily basis.”

However, “I truly enjoy working through those issues,” Littleton said. “Many times it involves people. … I enjoy trying to get the most out of the product for the customer.” As LCUB attorney, Littleton said he “worked with Mike Ragsdale’s office [then Knox County Mayor] to help implement” town of Farragut receiving representation on LCUB Board in the early 2000s. Littleton said LCUB employees, 22 in office and 140 total, “feel comfortable” coming to him with any problem they have. “My door’s open.” Having obtained a business administration degree at The University of Tennessee in 1994, Littleton’s law degree was earned at Regent University in Virginia Beach, Va. in 1997. A 1991 Lenoir City High School graduate, Littleton came back to his hometown in the late 1990s and joined with “my long time friend and mentor” Terry Vann, then City attorney, to form a small law firm. When Vann was elected City Judge in 1999, “I was serving in some capacity as City Attorney for him in a support role,” Littleton said. “Obviously he and I couldn’t share the same office with him being City Judge and me being City Attorney, so I had to move locations.” As a result, “That’s kind of what grew into where I’m at now,” Littleton added. “It grew into a lot more than I ever envisioned doing.” Littleton and wife, Denise, have three children: Elyse, 10, Kirsten, 8, and Brody, 4.

Rivals clash on the hardwood Admirals, Bulldogs split a pair of crucial District 4-AAA tilts

KEN LAY Correspondent

Old rivals Bearden and Farragut renewed of hardwood rivalry Friday night, Jan. 10, at FHS’s Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium and the Admirals as Bulldogs split a pair of crucial District 4-AAA tilts. Bearden’s boys had to work a little overtime to capture a 61-58 win over the pesky Admirals. Farragut’s girls prevailed 42-41 in a thriller. The Bulldogs entered Friday night’s game with the recent upper hand in the series between the Kingston Pike rivals. Bearden (12-7 overall, 5-2 in the district) had won four of the last five meetings between the two schools. The Bulldogs had won the last four regular-season meetings with the Ads’ lone win in head coach Chris Cool’s tenure coming in the 2012 District 4-AAA semifinals. Early on, it appeared that Bearden was poised to nab another lopsided win in the series. Bulldogs’ point guard Isaiah Campbell was hot early, scoring the first eight points, The Admirals (6-10, 4-2), however, would answer. Farragut closed the first quarter on a 15-6 run. FHS led by as many as 10 points in the second quarter. Park gave the home team a 25-15 lead midway through the second stanza. Bearden trailed throughout much of the half but no one was panicking. “[Guard] Jack [Graham] just got everybody together and said, ‘Hey, look, we’ve got to keep this

streak going,’” Campbell said. “We just knew that it was going to come down to the buzzer and it did.” Bearden clawed its way back into the game in the third quarter when a frenetic pace appeared too much for the Admirals at times. Early on, Bulldogs 61 Farragut Admirals 58 turned the ball over and Lady Admirals 42 took quick Lady Bulldogs 41 shots and that helped the Bulldogs take a 40-39 lead by third quarter’s end. “I think at that point, we were a little bit tired,” Cool said. “When you’re playing Bearden, you can’t let those things bother you. “I’ll say this. I think we played the better game but Bearden has a big heart and until we stand up and beat them, this is what’s going to happen.” In the fourth quarter, Cameron Turner, who scored a game-high 20 points, converted a 3-point play to give Farragut its last lead of the game with 7:21 to go. FHS went up 42-40 in that sequence. After that, Bearden took a 49-44 lead with 2:42 remaining in regulation. The Admirals, however, closed regulation with a 7-2 surge. Billy Williams sent the game to overtime with a bucket with 7.4 seconds left. Bearden’s Jake Elkins stole the show by scoring six of his 11 points in overtime. See RIVALS on Page 16A

FHS, BHS wrestlers provide drama, dominance at KCHS ■


For all of Bearden High School’s wrestling dominance in a threeway match with Farragut and Knoxville Catholic, two Admirals grapplers provided the most drama. Claiming last-second victories after barely avoiding early match pins against Irish opponents, Blade Martin’s pin of Steven Corum (160 weight class) with just 2.5 seconds left in the third period came when Martin was trailing 6-5 Thursday night, Jan. 9, at KCHS.

“I looked at all the parents, I thought I would do it for them,” said Martin, a senior, whose FHS team lost to Catholic 41-27 despite the Admirals winning five of seven contested matches. The other drama came at 182 when Farragut’s Ryan Coke scored two points just before the third-period buzzer sounded, edging Catholic’s Jerome Rehmann 13-12. Against the Irish, “We did well,” FHS head coach Joseph McAllister said. “We had a long break, so it was very reassuring to have them to come out and fight that hard. And three of those

matches, we went from [almost] being pinned to pinning.” That also included Zac Wright’s third period pin, at 132, against Catholic’s Grady Vanderhoofun. Other Admirals victories were Tyler Stinnett’s first-period pin against Seth Griffin at 113 and Shawndale D’Avila’s first-period pin of Austin Rowan at 220. Catholic’s Jake Poczobut scored a first-period pin against Dylan Kennedy at 126, while Irishman David Hamilton earned a technical fall against Garrett Broda at 152. The Bulldogs, meanwhile, did not lose a contested match in a

66-6 victory against Farragut before beating Catholic 47-27. BHS senior Tristan Majors, a two-time state qualifier ranked No. 5 statewide in Class AAA at 220 (25-3 record), won William Blount Invitational Jan 4 after finishing second in Bradley Invitational Dec. 21. He rolled to easy wins Jan. 9. “I’ve been having a real nice season so far, and it’s mostly from the work I put in this summer,” said Majors, 220 region champ last season who reached state quarterfinals. “… A realistic goal is to win state this year.” Jeremiah Garabrandt (132)

and David Garabrandt (145), both runner-ups at William Blount, won twice last Thursday, as did WB third-place finishers Teo Lopez (106), Ben Kaemmerer (138) and Dustin Wilson (182 and 195). Michael Armitage (126) and Zachary Griffin (27-4 record at 106) were Irish winners against Bearden. “Zach Griffin’s having a great year. David Hamilton’s one of my top guys,” KCHS head coach Justin Anderson said. Anderson’s team also includes See WRESTLING on Page 17A

HVA boys rally, fall in 2 0T; Lady Hawks roll over West ■


Composing himself at the foul line with only 1.5 seconds left in regulation, Dyonta Bizzle-Brown sank two pressure-packed free throws to give Hardin Valley Academy its first tie with West, 61-61, since it was 12-12 in the first quarter. Bizzle-Brown’s next big play backfired. The Hawks’ 6-foot-8 post rejected a West driving lay-up in

the closing seconds of double overtime, only to have the ball go directly to Rebel guard Alex Kerr. Kerr sank a three-point jumper at the buzzer for a thrilling Rebels 78 7 8 - 7 5 Hawks 75 West win F r i d a y, Jan. 10, at KWHS. About the blocked shot, “I was thinking at the end of the game, ‘I should have just grabbed it out of the air,”’ said Bizzle-Brown, who scored 22 points, as Hardin

Valley trailed by as many as 10 in the third quarter before rallying. “We played sluggish in the first half,” Bizzle-Brown added. About the last-second free throws, “I looked at my teammates and told them I had their backs,” Bizzle-Brown said. Hardin Valley lost only its second District 4-AAA game this season (5-2 starting the week) while falling to 10-6 overall. Zak Carter, HVA senior post, led the Hawks with 26 points.

Blaine Shockley, junior wing, added 14 for Hardin Valley. “I was really proud of how well we fought back and hit big shot after big shot,” HVA head coach K e i t h Lady Hawks 66 Galloway Lady Rebels 40 said. I n addition to praise for his top scorers, Galloway added, “I thought Austin Glasgow [senior point guard] played really tough defense. Blaine played tough defense.”

West (3-4 in 4-AAA) was led by guard Ahmad Shell with 22 points and post Chris Cook with 18. Meanwhile, Hardin Valley’s Lady Hawks built a 28-point third quarter lead against a struggling West team (only three wins), before the Lady Rebels rallied to get within 13. However, the Lady Hawks (8-8 overall, 3-4 in 4-AAA starting the week) regained control early in See HAWKS on Page 16A

Bulldogs’ head coach Mark Blevins said his team was fortunate to get the road win. “This was a big win for us,” he said. “We hadn’t played well in our last three games.” Meanwhile, the two girls teams wrote another epic chapter in their storied rivalry. The Lady Bulldogs and Lady Ads split four meetings last year and Bearden won the region title game at Farragut. Madison Maples wanted to make sure there was no repeat performance. “We’ve had this game circled on

our calendar for a long time,” said Maples, who scored six points and gave the Lady Ads a 42-39 lead with two foul shots with 31 seconds left. “My shots wouldn’t fall but I came back and hit those free throws. “We have big games coming up and we’re going to get everybody’s best shot.” Junior Mady Newby led FHS (151, 6-0) with 10 points and she scored four of those in the final frame. She acknowledged that the win didn’t come easy. “We just had to claw our way through this. This was a big win and we’ve wanted it since they beat us [in the regionals] last year.”

It was the third consecutive loss for Bearden (15-4, 4-3), which was without head coach Justin Underwood, who missed the game due to personal reasons. The Lady Bulldogs, who have battled adversity and injuries lately, put up a valiant fight and had a chance to win late. Tyler Carter had a potential game-winning desperation shot fall short. Bearden assistant coach Catlyn Houvener said she was pleased with her team’s effort. “Our girls played hard and they competed,” she said. “I’m very proud of them. Bearden’s Erin Walsh scored a game-high 13 points.

Senior guard Katie Smartt tallied 14 and junior wing Brooklyn Battle 13. “It was kind of frustrating when they started coming back. … I had to make some big plays,” Smartt said.

Wrestling From page 15A

sophomore Patrick Shurina (18-5 record), ranked No. 5 statewide in Class A-AA at 195. Missing four starters last Thursday, “I’d like to wrestle Donnie [Floyd, BHS head coach] when I’m at full strength and he’s at full strength and let’s see what happens,” Anderson said. In his seventh year as Bearden head coach, Floyd said about his current Bulldogs, “This is by far our best season. … The kids are really stepping up.” “I had two of my studs out,” Floyd added about Zach Patterson (120) and Jacob Gerken (152). “One of our best guys, Jackson Stewart [170] is done for the season. … He was on a roll and tore his ACL.”
