Farragut Middle opens second computer lab ■


A second computer lab is up and running at Farragut Middle School. FMS principal Danny Trent said computers for the lab came in at the school over winter break. He estimated the computers started getting used in midJanuary. The new computer lab consists of 30 computers and a printer. He estimated the computer lab cost

$34,000 or $35,000. Funding for the lab came from coupon book sales, he said. The computers are Macintosh desktop computers with 21-inch screens, he said. “We have Apple TV that we’re kind of using as a projection board on a 50-inch TV,” he said. Even with the additional computer lab, Trent said FMS still needs another computer lab. “I could use another lab right now today,” he said. “... Probably next year, we’ll start purchasing

computers for our teachers because most of our teachers are using computers that are over 10 years old. But we need another computer lab. We needed it yesterday.” The school is looking for an additional $35,000 to $40,000 for the third computer lab, he said, which would include Macintosh computers. Trent estimated there were 35 Dell computers in the existing computer lab and five working computers in the main library.

A fundraising effort at FMS for a third computer lab involves recycling, he said. “We’re trying to recycle old cell phones and portable devices right now,” he said. “... Anybody that wants to donate a recycled phone, a Wii, a GPS, iPad, if they’ll bring them in, we’ve got some collection bins, and we’ll take those and see what happens with that.” The school is partnered with Causes International for this effort, he said.

Farragut students to sing valentines

Julie Shane, founder and CEO of Causes International, said, “We’re a green cause organization that partners with non-profits and corporate entities in support of their charitable giving goals. ...

Top vocal ensemble choir students at Farragut High School will deliver a card, a rose and sing two songs to people on Valentine Day. Kenton Deitch, chorus teacher at FHS, said prices would be $5 for on-campus delivery and $20 for off-campus delivery. On average, he said the singing valentines fundraiser nets about 250 purchases, with about 100 of them being student-to-student on the FHS campus. Some faculty members at FHS receive the singing valentines, he said, sometimes as pranks from students and sometimes from their spouse. Anybody can sign up to have one sent, he said. “We deliver them to school teachers at other schools,” he said. “We deliver them to people at TVA downtown. We’ve delivered them to professors in front of whole classes at [The University of Tennessee] even. It’s to anyone.” This is Deitch’s seventh year leading the singing valentines fundraiser, as well as his seventh year at Farragut High School. “The kids through the years are pretty good about reading people as they’re singing to them,” he said. “If they feel like they won’t get slapped or be too offensive, they might even go up and grab their hand and embarrass them as much as they can.” Each recipient hears two songs, he said. Three of the songs available to be sung are the “I Love You” jingle from the PBS children’s show “Barney & Friends,” the song “You Are My Sunshine” and the Elvis Presley song “Love Me Tender.” “They’re delivered by a quartet, and in some cases, even as See VALENTINES on Page 2A

Dance time in Farragut ■


More than 80 people kicked up their heels during the town of Farragut’s AdultsOnly Dance Saturday night, Feb. 8, in Farragut High School Commons. “We thought the music was wonderful,” Ardell Dietzler of Farragut said. Ardell and husband, Bill Dietzler, were among the estimated 80 to 100 people who attended. Chelsey Riemann, Farragut public relations coordinator, said the Town sold 80 tickets in advance and more at the door. “We liked the music the most,” Bill Dietzler said. “There was a lot of old favorites.” “It was certainly danceable music,” Ardell said. The Dietzlers said they also thought there was a good

crowd and good food. “It was a happy atmosphere,” she said. “We enjoyed celebrating the Year of The Horse. We went last year and had a good time, so this year we encouraged some of our friends to attend. Two couples did come this year.” The Dietzlers added they would go again next year. “We loved it,” said Laura Hofman of Farragut, who attended with her date, Jim English. “We went last year, and it was wonderful; so we went again. “I liked the band, the music, the venue, the people,” Hofman added. “Everything was great.” Attendees said they came from as near as Farragut and as far as Kingsport for this year’s Year of the Horse dance [a Chinese New Year celebration.] “We liked it a lot,” Norm

Schloss said. “Great band.” He and wife, Dawn, who live just outside Farragut toward Cedar Bluff, said they read about it in farragutpress. “We had a great time,” he said. “The place was great.” “The band was great,” Dawn added. Norm said, however, the floor was a little slick. But, they still enjoyed the dancing. He said he and Dawn would go next year, and even may attend any dances that occur before next year’s event. “We had a wonderful second-annual event,” Riemann said. “The Chillbillies were really great and our attendees enjoyed dancing to music they played.” “We think, overall, it was a fun night for all who attended, Riemann said.

A Hardin Valley Academy math teacher and coach, praised by his boss for “outstanding” professional skills, was arrested and charged with public intoxic a t i o n according to Knox County Sheriff’s O f f i c e spokesperson Martha Dooley. Joseph E. Michalski Michalski was “intoxicated and a danger to himself” when officers arrived at 9216 Adenleigh Way at 1:20 a.m. Sunday morning, Feb. 2, a KCSO report stated. Knox County Schools placed Michalski, HVA varsity baseball head coach, “on administrative leave with pay,” Amanda Johnson, KCS public affairs specialist, released via e-mail. Michalski’s case was “dismissed on court costs” Monday, Feb. 3, by Knox County General Sessions Court Judge Andrew Jackson VI, a Sessions Court spokesperson said. “Brought in” to Knox County Jail at 11:35 a.m., Feb. 2, Michalski was released on a $500 bond at 6:41 p.m., that evening, Dooley said. Though HVA athletic director and assistant principal George Ashe declined comment about Michalski’s status at the school, he did extend a complement. “What I do know is that I’ve got an outstanding coach and an even better classroom teacher hanging in the balance here,” Ashe said about Michalski. “I’m sweating this.” As for KCSO report details, “A citizen advised that a white male was trying to get into various apartments.

AARP driving class informative ■ ALAN SLOAN

“Practically everyone in the class came up and said how much they appreciated that.” In a real situation, “I had just gone through that with my mother-in-law. I talked her out of her driver’s license,” Humphries added. Carolyn Rambo, chief course trainer for state of Tennessee and district [Knox metro] coordinator, said instruction about when to give up driving is a subject “I find that seniors are really interested in.” For example, “I had a gentleman last year, his wife came up to me and said, ‘Thanks so much for the time you spent on this one unit,’” Rambo added. ‘I had tried to convince him to give up

Apparently Nancy Humphries is quite a performer. But her purpose is quite serious. Humphreys, alongside her husband, Weldon, were two of 17 seniors 50-and-over participating in the latest AARP Smart Driving Program class in Town Hall Thursday and Friday, Jan. 22-23. Joining instructor Nancy Carmon in a skit demonstrating when it’s time for a senior to give up driving, “That’s probably something a lot of people in that class needed to hear, about how to do it” whenever the time comes, Humphries said.

The money collected from the singing valentines orders goes toward expenses for the eight FHS all-state choral students’ trip to the Tennessee Music Education Association’s all-state clinic and conference at the TMEA Professional Development Conference in Memphis in April. The deliveries take place on Valentine Day. “We generally fire up about 8:30 [a.m.], and we try to wrap it up about 4:30 [p.m.],” he said.

I’m going to refer it to my friend.’” Rambo said the 8-hour, twoday course “evaluates their current knowledge of driving rules and situations. That’s our basic goal.

The students doing the singing and delivering love it, he said. “They love singing, and any chance they get to sing for somebody new, they have a great time doing that,” he said. “The students are very outgoing. They’re very polite. ... Just about every time, there are lots of praises. I think the kids enjoy it like I said because they get to sing for somebody and they get to show off, but they also enjoy delivering happiness to people. ... They don’t just sing at the audience. They want to communicate with them and interact with the audience.”

lettertotheeditor KCSO disputes Peters letter I must correct several errors and distortions that were made by a Richard D “Don” Peters Jr. in a letter to the editor that was published on Jan. 30. Unfortunately, Mr. Peters was a victim of a burglary. Although I appreciate Mr. Peters’ frustration of being the victim of a crime, I cannot allow him to misinform others with bitterly false assertions and accusations that will only mislead and confuse your readers. Mr. Peters is not a resident of Farragut as he claims in his letter. He lives approximately one mile east of the town of Farragut in the unincorporated area of Knox County. Mr. Peters asserts that investigators “did not even dust my house for fingerprints.” This is an absolutely false statement. Knox County Sheriff’s Office forensics officers processed Mr. Peters home and a related crime scene location in Loudon County for fingerprints and other forensic evidence. In fact, KCSO forensics officers retrieved several items of evidence (including prints) from both Mr. Peters’ home and the related crime scene in Loudon County. Mr. Peters’ insistence that investigators can conduct a nationwide search of individual registrations based solely on a racial identifier without triggering constitutional implications is naïve at best. Plus, it is profoundly impractical. Investigators are aggressively pursuing all leads, but as in all criminal investigations, law enforcement actions must conform to constitutional limitations. Investigators have consulted with Mr. Peters repeatedly about this matter. Mr. Peters incorrectly asserts that Farragut “has more than its share of robberies and burglaries” and that the Sheriff’s Office refuses to provide a “comparison” to other towns. This is simply not true. A careful examination of the readily available data show that Farragut has a much lower offending rate than nearby communities and Sheriff [J.J.] Jones publishes all Knox County crime incidents on the website using Crimemapping software.

• I wanted to voice a complaint about the recycle center near Lovell Road in Farragut. I am an avid recycler and have been disappointed and at other times disgusted at how poorly maintained the recycle center is there. I do remember that there was information in the past about how Farragut does not recycle, but I don’t think it’s helpful that it is not maintained and it’s such an unpleasant experience to take your recycling. I was there on Tuesday, Feb. 4, and it was utterly disgusting and I don’t see a reason for the poor maintenance on a Tuesday. There were bags, several, several bags of stuff. It’s like going to a dump and there’s liter on the ground because the containers are so full and overfull of recycling. The owner needs to do a much better job of maintaining and emptying the recycle containers so that more people will take their recycling and it’s not such a disgusting experience. It’s embarrassing and shameful for our community. Editor’s Note: The recycling center of which you note is not in the town of Farragut. It is located in Knox County and is privately owned. There is no

charge for the service and the owner receives no support from Knox County or the people who use the free service. Others in Farragut who choose not to use the center and recycle at home usually pay a fee to their waste service provider. • During the ice storm last week, the town of Farragut did a really good job on Grigsby Chapel and Smith roads. This was the only road that was clear and this includes the Interstate. So, good job town of Farragut. Editor’s Note: Along with Grigsby Chapel and Smith roads, the town Public Works department under the management of Bud McKelvey had Campbell Station, Concord and McFee roads clear, not to mention Kingston Pike and many of the side streets. • Editorial freedom is a wonderful concept, but it does come with its responsibilities.

also includes “lots of videos,” Rambo said. “And we always give them state-specific information from the Tennessee Drivers Manuel. … We go over the [laws] relevant to what we’re studying in our guidebook.” Each unit of study “will have a quiz at the end,” Rambo said, though she added that passing the quiz is not required. Upon course completion (two 4-hour classes), “Each insurance company is different, but the

state code requires that they give you some type of discount to take a defensive driving course,” Rambo said. “And also, that depends on your driving record, too,” Rambo added. Upon completing the course, “Your certification is good for three years,” Rambo said. “I’m now having participants back into my class that were there three years ago. And I’ve had a couple that were there six years ago. They get a lot out of it. It

refreshes their memory, because as we age we forget things. … It brings us up to date on how the laws have changed in the state.” Rambo emphasizes that you do not have to be an AARP member to take the course, just age 50 or older: current member cost is $15, non-member $20.

‘Alice in Wonderland’ at FMS Feb. 13-14 ■


The star of Farragut Middle School’s upcoming choral musical “Alice In Wonderland,” eighthgrader Cassidy Wills said she’s no stranger to big roles. And she doesn’t lack for ambition. “I was in first grade when I did my first show, it was a Thanksgiving play at my old school in New Jersey,” said Wills, starring as Alice among a roughly 30-member main cast [with speaking parts] of eighth-grade FMS choral program talent. “I was Hermia in ‘A Midnight Summer’s Dream’ last year in seventh grade, the Shakespeare play, and I was Amyrills in Oak Ridge Playhouse’s ‘Music Man,’” Wills added. Almost 200 FMS Choral students make up the entire cast, with the main cast performing both shows beginning at 7 p.m. tonight, Thursday, Feb. 13, and 7 p.m., Friday, Feb. 14, in FMS’s Bobby Henry Gymnasium. All tickets available at the door for $5. Planning to attend Farragut High School next fall, Wills has big plans beyond her Class of 2018

goals. “I think I want to go to school at The Royal Academy of Dramatic Arts in London,” she said. “And then I want to start in stage acting, like here, and then I want to go into film for movies.” As for playing Alice, “I think I have a lot in common with the character. She’s just very curious about everything,” Wills said. “And she is a fun little girl.” Performing in “my first real play,” Ethan Rosas said playing The White Rabbit suits him because “I’m very hectic, and I’m just running around all over the place and just talking a lot. “Learning the lines is pretty hard, but once you’re up on the stage it’s just fun,” Rosas added. “I think it’s a great play because you have a bunch of wacky characters that are really funny.” Hope Whitaker, Cheshire Cat No. 1, said she like her role because “you can kind of embody someone else, and I am like such a goodie-goodie, and I don’t like messing with anyone’s business.” However, “the Cheshire Cat is kind of like mischievous, and she’s like throwing Alice into all this trouble. And so it’s cool to see like the outcome of what happens

when the Cheshires start to mettle,” Whitaker added. Katie Mixon said her role as Cheshire Cat No. 2 “is fun because I’m interacting with the other

and member of Farragut High School’s Admiral Performing Arts Company (Class of 2009), is cochoral director along with fellow FMS teacher Janna Waldrupe.

RCF offers Global Scholarship program


If your life’s goal is making the world a better place, and you’ve earned an undergraduate degree while still seeking a graduate degree, a unique scholarship opportunity exists through The Rotary Club of Farragut. In its second year, Rotary Global Scholarship program is an opportunity for “one or two” entries in Rotary International District 6780 (65 clubs comprising most of Knoxville and

Chattanooga metro region west to Cookeville) to earn a $30,000 graduate studies scholarship at a school “abroad” for one year. Degree must be in a field relating to at least one of Rotary’s Six Areas of Focus worldwide. “This is a great opportunity for a student who’s interested in international study,” Fred Martin, Farragut Rotary past president and club’s Global Studies coordinator said. “it’s really an unusual scholarship opportunity.”

Six areas of world focus include peace, maternal health, disease control, clean water and local economic development. “Somebody whose career goal is in helping globally in one of those Six Areas,” Martin added. Entries must be accepted at The Rotary Club of Farragut by Feb. 15, with an interview conducted by Martin “and probably two other” Farragut Rotarians following.

Dance for your supper One of our New Year’s Resolutions a few years ago was to dance more! Our excuse had always been that the places to dance were smoky and we don’t smoke. We’d taken a whack at ballroom dancing lessons at a Jr. College, but only went once because I just wanted to dance with Terry, my husband, and ended up having to dance with a bunch of o t h e r sweaty, old men in whom I did- Pam n’t know or Young care to Make it dance with. So when my Fun! husband saw line dancing lessons advertised in our local newspaper, he signed us up! The classes were held at Jolly’s, a local tavern/restaurant and since Washington State prohibits smoking in all bars and restaurants we knew we’d be spared sucking in smoky air. Ahh, line dancing!! I actually took my first line dancing lesson in Nashville, at the Wild Horse. I was on a business trip and my friends invited me to join them and I line danced my face off! Sweatin’ like a pig on a rotisserie, I was in heaven, moving with the crowd of a couple hundred, real cowboys and cowgirls. The lessons Terry read about in the newspaper, were to start on a Wednesday at 7 pm sharp. So, donned in our cowboy boots, we paid our $7 each and waited for our first lesson! There were about twenty people in the class, mostly women. The name of the dance, we learned that night was the Tush Push. If you line dance, you probably know that the Tush Push is not a beginner dance, but with Nashville under my cowgirl belt, let’s just say I was a few steps ahead of Terry in our first lesson. No, on second thought, let’s say, at six foot, three-inches, he towered over everyone on the dance floor and managed to dance in

pretty much the wrong direction most of the night! (He said he felt like he did when we were visitors at an Episcopal Church service and we unfortunately sat in the front row and didn’t know the stand up, sit down rules at the service.) He was embarrassed. Because he did so poorly in his first lesson, he didn’t have nearly as much fun as I did being able to master the dance in about 15 minutes. He didn’t want to go to the classes anymore, but said he would try it one more time. He also informed me that if he was as bad at the next lesson, he would quit, but would take me every week and just sit on the sidelines and watch me. Well I didn’t want that! That would not be fun! I wanted him to dance with me, not watch me dance by myself! Before that crucial second class, my plan was to set my timer for 15 minutes BEFORE dinner every night so I could teach him the steps. I figured his reward for the 15 minutes would be dinner. We could practice together in the comfort and seclusion of our living room and once he’d memorized the order of the steps, he’d turn that embarrassment into pride (ego’s opposite of embarrassment is pride). I thought he’d be willing to do that, but trying to get through that male ego enough to teach him the dance so he could get into the zone of the dance and enjoy the sport, didn’t work. That was four years ago and we haven’t been on a dance floor since. You can’t hold a meal over a guy’s head, who has married you because the way to his heart has always been through his stomach. I wonder if I should try again. After all it’s a new year. Maybe I can think of something else to use besides food to get him to do learn the Tush Push.

have a new stadium, new pressbox, new concessions area,” said John Rice, BHS head coach, who added the project does not require a loan. “We’ll hopefully have one of the nicest high school stadiums in East Tennessee and maybe the state. Entering the new field, “As you come off the street we’re going to have a wrought iron gate and brick pillars,” Rice said. “We’ll have a concrete plaza and ticket booth” in the walk-in area. Plaza also will feature “a bust of Phil Garner as you go to the ticket booth and concession stand,” Morgan Shinlever, BHS athletic director, said.

Rice said a “three-storied” structure, with central air/heating, will feature “a pressbox on top, the concession stand in the middle [at plaza-level walk-in area] and a storage area on the bottom.” The pressbox/concession stand building “will come back about 40 to 45 feet toward the street,” Rice said. “And we’re putting chairback seats in front of that area right behind home plate. … Stadiumtype seating. I think we’re talking 10 rows of chairbacks.” Shinlever said an additional “roughly 500” extra bleacher seats behind home plate “will make it continuous seating” connecting first- and third-base sides. As for the current chain-link fencing running down both sides of the field, Shinlever said, “We are wanting

to replace off of that with brick-andwrought-iron fencing.” Craig Belitz Construction of Knoxville was low bidder, with construction well underway by the end of 2013. “We’ve been told multiple times: ‘this is something that can be done in 10 weeks,’” Rice said. “If we have perfect weather, before that.” However, “I expect it to be, like most things, coming down to the wire,” Rice added. In addition to completing a new drainage system, “We installed a new turf halo around the back [home plate and foul ground] area of our field. It’s very similar to the one Farragut has,” Rice said. Project is paid for entirely by “donations and fundraising,” Shinlever said.

Budhendra “Budhu” Bhaduri, left, a Farragut resident and Oak Ridge National Laboratories corporate research fellow and group leader, joins Femi Omitaomu, center, and Marie Urban, two other Computational Sciences and Engineering Division group members and Farragut residents, as they discuss population issues using Everest, a large visualization facility at ORNL.


Oak Ridge National Laboratory has taken on a challenge to make finer resolution databases on a global scale. That means data the group collects from high-resolution satellite images and uses to solve society’s problems on the national level could be collected at higher resolutions worldwide also. One member of a group of 50 working on that effort is Farragut resident Budhendra “Budhu” Bhaduri, corporate research fellow and leader of ORNL’s Geographic Information Science and Technology group within the Computational Sciences and Engineering Division. Bhaduri said the group has developed a fine-resolution population distribution model and database for the world and United States. Currently, the global data has 1-kilometer-by-1-kilometer cells. Its data describes the distribution of people every 90-meter cell. The group wants to increase the resolution of the global data from 1 kilometer to 90 meters,

Bhaduri said. There are challenges, however. “There is an incredible volume of data we have to process, understand and get the information,” he said. Additionally, Bhaduri said the population database is dynamic. “People are moving all the time,” he said. So, the data has to be constantly refreshed. Bhaduri said his group looks at how science and technology solutions can be brought about using different kinds of data collected. One of the other projects is a model that looks at changes in vegetation in relation to deforestation or biofuels from crops. “We use high-performance computing for doing these kinds of resolutions,” he said. “What we end up doing at the end of the day drives all these different kinds of needs: How much energy do we need to run society? How much food do we need, where do we need it and from where we would get it?” Bhaduri added the data is used to solve humanity’s issues of energy use, adequate food supply, See BHADURI on Page 13A

For Southern gospel fans, Virtue Cumberland Presbyterian Church is the place to be on the second Tuesday of every month. The church, located at 725 Virtue Road, hosts a Pickin’ for the Lord event each month, which includes food, fellowship and Southern gospel music. James Aist, administrative assistant at Virtue Cumberland Presbyterian Church, said a dinner takes place at 6 p.m., and the music starts at 7 p.m. The event also allows for people from different churches and denominations to congregate together. People from about 10 to 15 area churches and about six different denominations come to the event, Aist said. “That’s just a wonderful feeling because you get all these people that may have some differences in

their belief, some relatively minor differences in their belief, but ... they all come together and worship and praise the same Lord on the basis of what they agree on, which is the gospel of Jesus Christ,” Aist said. “I mean these are all people who are going to be together in heaven one day, so it’s good to practice that.” A guest group begins the music, and host band Cross Connection plays after that, Larry Maples, who plays guitar and sings for Cross Connection, said. “We have so many different denominations that come together to worship,” Maples said. “We have Baptist. We have Methodist. We have Church of God. We have Nazarene. The different denominations can all come together in a worship service, and everybody really enjoys it.” Maples compared the event to a church service, except the event is “99-percent music,” he said.

“We have a lot of churches that come to this,” Maples said. “Sometimes we’ll have 12 or 15 churches represented as far as members of their church. Sometimes we have choir directors that are there, and we have pastors of churches that come. And if I know that a certain choir director or music director is there from another church, I may get him to lead a couple of congregational-type things. And if I find out there are pastors and preachers there, I try to recognize them,” Maples said he is the only person in the Cross Connection band that is a member of Virtue Cumberland Presbyterian Church. The other people in the band go to different churches, he said. The event is full of mostly Southern gospel, with some bluegrass and country gospel mixed in, Maples said.

families.” Cantwell and Ford recommended not removing fall and winter debris when cleaning out yards. “Leave the planter as cover for the birds,” Ford said. “And, leave some brush piles.” Why feed wild birds? “Mainly for the enjoyment,” Ford answered. “It helps the birds through the winter, but primarily the enjoyment of watching them.” “They’ve got their own personalities, just like people,” she said. “We’ve got such a good area, too,” she said. “With the mild climate, we get a lot of birds that stay in the South and overlap with a lot with birds that are migrating from different parts of the country.” Ford has two free-standing feeder pole setups with different elements, arm and feeder arrangements, allowing her to put out several types of bird seed

such as black oil sunflowers, suet, peanuts, thistle [also called niger], dried meal worms and a mix of ground millet and shelled corn. “They’ve got six or seven species of birds waiting for them [Fords] to go away so they can eat,” Cantwell said. Ford said the goldfinches are particularly fond of thistle while bluebirds, woodpeckers and sapsuckers are fond of suet. She also has a hummingbird feeder during the summer and fall seasons, as well as mulberry and hackberry trees, which offer a fruit supply source. Ford said her mother got her interested in bird watching. “My parents were animal lovers. My mom had bird feeders, and we did a lot of family hiking in the mountains. They always pointed out animals and birds.” “Bird watching is the fastest growing hobby right now,” Cantwell said. “It’s growing faster than gardening.”

Q: Every year when I take my dog, Reese, into the vet for his annual check up, the vet says that he needs to have his teeth cleaned. Is it really that important? And why do they have to be asleep to do this? J a m i e , Farragut A: Yes, Jamie, dental Stephanie health is real- Myers ly that imporAsk tant. If your the Vet veterinarian has recommended that Reese’s teeth be cleaned, that means that there are visible signs of dental disease present. Tartar, gingivitis, fractured teeth, and even loose or abscessed teeth can often be detected on a physical exam.

A dental cleaning for your pet (dog or cat) is very similar to your own dental checkups, except that to remove plaque and tartar above and below the gumline, anesthesia is necessary. Dogs and cats will simply not be still long enough to adequately scale and polish the teeth. While your pet is anesthetized, a complete oral exam is performed, including probing gingival pocket depths. Any xrays, treatment, or extractions are also done at this time. Eliminating pain and infection are important reasons to keep Reese’s mouth healthy and clean. Also possible is secondary infection of other organs, including the liver, kidneys, and heart. This can occur when bacteria from infected and/or abscessed teeth enters the blood stream and affect other systems. Your veterinarian has likely spoken to you about dental home care for Reese, too. Since plaque can

adhere to a tooth in 24-48 hours, daily brushing is ideal. For pets that resist brushing, there are other options including rinses, gels, treats, and foods that help fight plaque. Some pet owners are not aware that veterinary dentistry is now a specialty. Board certified veterinary dentists have specialized training to perform advanced procedures including root canals and crowns on pets. February is National Pet Dental Health Month, and especially this month, veterinarians across the country strive to promote dental health and educate pet owners regarding the importance of dental care. If you have concerns about your pet’s oral health, contact your veterinarian today. Do you have a question that you would like answered? E-mail


FMS students going to ETSBOA clinic ■ ROBBY O’DANIEL

Calvin Harris, a member of First Farragut United Methodist Church, unloads food so it can be stocked at the West Knox FISH Pantry in January 2012.

Churches unite for West Knox FISH Pantry


Three churches will work to stock the West Knox FISH Pantry in February: First Farragut United Methodist Church, St. Elizabeth’s Episcopal Church and Faith Fellowship Cumberland Presbyterian Church. Betty Hammill has worked with the West Knox FISH Pantry for more than 30 years, she said. She said the pantry is a delivery pantry, not a pantry for walkins. “There’s about 18 churches that are involved in our West Knox FISH Pantry,” Hammill said. A different church or churches, among that group, pay for the food and stock the pantry each month, she said. The church or churches, whose turn it is to stock the pantry, also take grocery bags and fill them so that they are

ready for delivery to those who are in need. But those stocking the pantry are not the only ones involved during any given month. “Most of the churches that are involved in our pantry do deliver one day a month and take phone calls,” she said. Those phone calls come from those in need, looking for food to be delivered. The pantry mainly delivers to people in Knox County, she said. See PANTRY on Page 13A

Eight students from Farragut Middle School auditioned and were selected for the East Tennessee School Band and Orchestra Association’s Junior Orchestra Clinic, while 18 students from FMS participated in the Knox County Honors Festival. Debra Patterson, who teaches orchestra at FMS, described what the 18 FMS participants did Oct. 25 at the Knox County Honors Festival. “Eighteen orchestra students – seventh and eighth graders – that played with a guest conductor, they had a whole day festival where they worked on the music all day and had a concert in the evening,” Patterson said. Patterson selected the stu-

dents that participated in the Knox County Honors Festival. “They were selected by instrument and ability to learn their music and participate in a oneday event,” she said. With a guest conductor, the eight FMS students at the junior clinic worked, and the students performed in a concert, she said. “The students worked very hard preparing for their auditions, and it’s a great honor to be selected,” she said. “The students were competing against many students from other schools and only the best, ... it was seventh-, eighth- and ninthgraders that they were participating against, and only the best and the most prepared were selected.” The Junior Orchestra Clinic took place at Maryville College Friday, Nov. 22 and Saturday,

Nov. 23, she said. “The East Tennessee School Band and Orchestra provides an opportunity for these students to work with other students from other school districts and to work with a guest conductor,” she said. Patterson said more students at FMS were qualified to participate, but there were space limitations in both events. “Farragut Middle School has a lot of really talented string players, a lot of students that work very hard and are dedicated, and I enjoy working with them a lot,” she said. “And we also had a lot of students that weren’t able to participate because of the limited numbers, but there were a number of students that were certainly qualified to do it.

When food is delivered from the pantry, it’s a three-day supply of food, she said. Most of the food is bought from Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee, while some food comes from donations, she said. Laura Derr is part of First Farragut United Methodist Church’s FISH Team, which is part of West Knox FISH Pantry. Derr said in a Wednesday, Jan.

8, interview that her church is asking its congregation for donations of a few select specific items. “Each church makes their own decisions about that, but at First Farragut, we’re [asked] for donations for three Sundays [in January] in a row of ... canned tuna or chicken, peanut butter and spaghetti sauce because those are the three high-priced items,” Derr said Jan. 8. “They’re expensive.” Derr talked about the types of food that are given away as part

of the overall West Knox FISH Pantry and all the involved churches’ efforts. “Canned vegetables, usually green beans, corn, peas, also baked beans, spaghetti, noodles, rice, dried beans, crackers, cereal, dried milk and soups -- we usually do tomato soup, chicken noodle soup and vegetarian beef soup -- and we also do have freezers,” Derr said. “And we keep bread that we give. We give loaves of bread away as well.”

profound societal impacts,” he said about being a member of the group. He joins other group members who live in Farragut, including Marie Urban, who has been with the group eight-and-a-half years, and Femi Omitaomu, a group member for seven years.

“It provides a challenging environment,” Omitaomu said. “You deal with problems you wouldn’t normally deal with at the university.” Urban said being a part of the group offers many research opportunities.

Applicants “should already have made contact with the university abroad and been accepted into that program before they apply,” Ivan Jones, District 6780 coordinator for Global Scholarship program, said. Also, Martin advises, “I think there are letters of recommendations that have to be part of the application; from professors

or people who know them pretty well.” Martin said one key factor might be “job experience” in one of the Six Areas of Focus, adding that having an undergraduate degree relating to the Six Areas “might help.” Locally, Martin and his “two other” committee members will interview each applicant before choosing one or possibly two, and if RCF’s board approves, applicant(s) would be eligible for scholarship consideration by 6780. The scholarship winners[s] will be announced “by midApril,” then approved by Rotary

Dennis Ross, also in eighth grade, participated in both the honors festival and the junior clinic. He described his experience at junior clinic. “Junior clinic was interesting because it was a mix of a bunch of the schools from around here, and you could meet a bunch of people, while learning new techniques and new songs along with those people,” Ross said.

Men’s Wearhouse, 11477 Parkside Drive in the Pinnacle at Turkey Creek shopping center, opened Wednesday, Dec. 18. “Men’s Wearhouse is a full-line men’s store, carrying tailored clothing as well as shirts, neck ties, casual wear, both dressy casual wear, as well as casual weekend wear,” Tom Jennings, senior vice president of real estate at Men’s Wearhouse Inc., said. “We also sell shoes. We sell

socks. ... Under the tailored clothing portion of what we sell, that would include suits, sport coats and slacks, so it’s a full-line men’s store is what it is; men’s clothing store, he added. The store also rents tuxedos, Jennings said. “We operate the full-line Men’s Wearhouse stores under the name Men’s Wearhouse, and then we operate a much smaller operation with Men’s Wearhouse & Tux, which is a tuxedo rental chain. “A staff of a Men’s Wearhouse store will have between eight and 10 employees ...,” he added. “We

are in every single state, including Hawaii and Alaska, and it’s a New York Stock Exchange company. And we’ve been in business since 1973. ... There are approximately 650 Men’s Wearhouse stores and 260 Men’s Wearhouse & Tux stores.” Jennings talked about what makes the business stand out. “I think the value in terms of the garments that we sell, as well as the merchandise, the timeliness and the fashion direction of the merchandise, as well as what we believe is world-class customer service,” he said.


Wasabi Japanese Steakhouse & Sushi Bar, located at 226 Lovell Road, celebrated the restaurant location’s 10th anniversary in November. “We are a Japanese steakhouse where the chef will cook in front of you,” Teresa Wang, general manager of both the Bearden Hill and Turkey Creek locations, said. “And we have a sushi bar.” Wang described Wasabi as a specialty restaurant. “It is not just the food,” she said. “It is a show also because the chef will do all the tricks, do the show in front of the customers while they cook it. ... If they have any special allergies, we have a chef in the kitchen that will specially cook for them.” If a customer does not wish to have a chef cook in front of them, they can sit at a table and the food will be brought out to them, she said.

Hawks No. 1 tourney seed despite loss ■


Dealing with Grace Christian Academy’s up-tempo style was a tough way for Hardin Valley Academy to end its four-game week. The Hawks gave up 94 points to the Rams 94 a g g r essive Hawks 73 and hotshooting Rams at GCA Friday night, Feb. 7, losing its regular season finale 94-73. “They shot the ball well, and this was our fourth game this week,” said HVA head coach Keith Galloway, whose District 4AAA tri-champion and top tourney seed ends its regular season 18-9. “I don’t wan to take anything away from them, but our guys were just dog-tired.” Hardin Valley will play either Farragut, West or Lenoir City in semifinal tourney action starting at 7:30 p.m., Friday, Feb. 14, at FHS. Championship game is 7:30 p.m., Tuesday, Feb. 18, at FHS. Down 43-28 at halftime, HVA got no closer than 10 points in the second half before wilting late. “You can’t get in a hole like that and expect to be able to come back when this is your fourth game of the week,” Galloway said. “To our credit, we didn’t stop fighting until the end. “They came out and they answered the call, and we didn’t have our game tonight. … They can all shoot it. And they shot

the ball well.” Zak Carter, Hawks senior post and District 4-AAA Most Valuable Player, scored 21. Junior wing Blaine Shockley, an All-4-AAA honoree, also scored 21. Senior point guard Austin Glasgow added nine. “Four games in a week, it takes a Lady Rams 59 toll on you. We Lady Hawks 56 came out flat. But that’s not an excuse,” Shockley said. “They moved the ball well and they shot it well.” Caleb Clevenger, junior guard, provided a spark for HVA with a couple of steals turned into baskets in the first half, scoring eight before the break. “They shot very well, and they were working very hard,” Clevenger said. “They were going after every loose ball, diving on the floor.” Clevenger pointed out that Grace “played a couple of other games this week,” adding about his team’s big week of games, “I don’t think that bothered us too much. Maybe a little.” Grace ended its regular season at 17-6, led by forward Andrew Byram with 24 points followed by post Luke Shepherd with 20. Point guard Nathan Silver added 16. “It’s just one of those games where we really executed. We played very hard. They’re a great team,” Grace head coach Matt Mercer said. “It wasn’t their best See HAWKS on Page 4B

Battle to the end, Lady Hawks edge Lady Rebels 59-58 ■

KEN LAY Correspondent

Brooklyn Battle rode an emotional roller coaster Monday night. But her ride ended on a high note as she hit a game-winning layup to net the Hardin Valley Academy girls a 59-58 victory over West High in the first round of the District 4-AAA Girls Basketball Tournament at

Farragut High School’s Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium. “It was good to hit that shot, especially after I missed two free throws Lady Hawks 59 and had a turnover Lady Rebels 58 in the fourth quarter,” said Battle, a junior guard who buried the eventual game-winner with three seconds to play. Battle experienced the entire

gamut of emotions in the waning moments of the victory that extended the season for the fifth-seeded Lady Hawks (1314). She missed a pair of goahead foul shots with 24.9 seconds left and had a turnover a short time later. The eighth-seeded Lady Rebels (1-24) converted that miscue into a point when Nicole Adams made a free throw to give West, which didn’t win a district

game all season, a 58-57 lead with 8.3 seconds to go. Battle, however, received redemption when she hit a layup off a pass from Katie Smartt to score the winning points. “It was big because I missed free throws and made some bad plays,” said Battle, who finished with 12 points. “I had to redeem myself and this was a big win.” The victory might not have earned many style points but

Hardin Valley coach Jennifer Galloway was elated all the same. “A win in the district tournament is better than a loss,” Galloway said. “Brooklyn made a great shot and it was a good find from Katie Smartt. “Katie played a great game and she helped us get back into the game in the second quarter.

Bulldogs sweep Catholic on Senior night 57-54, 54-36 ■ KEN LAY


It was a night for celebration for t h e Bulldogs 57 Bearden Irish 54 H i g h School basketball teams versus Knoxville Catholic High School on BHS Senior Night and basketball homecoming, as things were more festive by evening’s end as the Bulldogs swept the Irish. The Bearden boys notched a 5754 comeback victory over Catholic while the Lady Bulldogs downed KCHS 54-36 Friday night, Feb. 7, before a packed and boisterous

house at BHS. In the boys tilt, the Bulldogs would prevail — but things wouldn’t be easy. The injury-riddled I r i s h Lady Bulldogs 54 started Lady Irish 36 fast and rode the hot hand of guard Ryan Henry early. Henry scored 11 of his gamehigh 26 points in the first quarter and helped Catholic (8-18) open a 21-11 lead by the end of the first quarter. He hit a pair of buzzerbeating 3-pointers as time expired in both the first and third stanza. “Catholic is a good team and this year they’ve struggled a little

bit and they’ve had a lot of injuries,” said BHS guard Jack Graham, who led the Dawgs with 20 points. “I’ve played with Ryan since I was a kid and he’s a great player and he was on tonight.” Bearden (19-9) fell behind early and spent most of the night chip-

ping away at the Irish’s lead and clawing its way out of huge hole. The process was slow, methodical and sometimes grueling. Bulldogs guard Isaiah Campbell said that it would make his team better as BHS opens District 4-AAA Tournament play this week.

“This game is going to give us momentum,” said Campbell, who made some key steals and converted a pair of layups when the Bulldogs made the clinching run. “This will be huge for us.” See BULLDOGS on Page 5B


Bearden nets 9 state qualifiers, HVA 6 ■


Nine of 10 Bearden wrestlers qualified for this week’s Class AAA state tournament in Franklin, highlighted by three Region 2-AAA champions — one of those a late-blooming rookie. First-year wrestler Musab Henderson, a senior, used a latematch move to break a 4-4 tie and defeat Gibbs’ Tucker Davis 6-4 to capture the heavyweight region crown Saturday, Feb. 8, at Karns High School. “He was trying to take me down from the back and I was baiting him,” said Henderson, who was joined by fellow BHS region champs Ben Kaemmerer (126), a senior, and Zach Patterson (I20), a junior. Henderson said he’d previously won two of three matches

She scored some points but she had five or six big assists for us too.” Smartt, a senior guard, scored 17 points, including seven in the second stanza when the Lady Hawks seemed to need them most. HVA was sluggish early and fell behind 21-13 in the first quarter before Smartt and Lacy Cantrell, who led all scorers with 25 points, did enough to give the Lady Hawks a 32-27 lead at halftime. “Our urgency wasn’t there but we really battled back,” Cantrell

versus Davis. About his development, Henderson (26-15 record) said BHS coaches and players “were putting pressure on me, not letting me give up in practice. … Taking me to extra practices.” Already having earned the program’s second consecutive state duals berth earlier this season, Bearden took second place as a team Saturday behind Halls. Kaemmerer (36-11) “has been working hard all four years. He deserved it,” BHS head coach Donnie Floyd. “Zach’s just a pure athlete [41-6]. He’s unorthodox. He’s hard for people to figure out.” Bearden region runner-ups included senior Tristan Majors (220), a former region champ and two-time state qualifier who lost a tough, and chippy, 3-2 decision to

Gibbs’ Caleb Wood. Majors wrestled with an injured hand. Junior David Garabrandt (138) and sophomore Jacob Gerken (152) also took second. Bulldogs also qualifying were senior Luis DeLaCruz (160, third), junior Teo Lopez (106, fourth) and senior Dustin Wilson (182, fourth). While no Farragut wrestler qualified for state, six Hardin Valley Academy Hawks qualified — more than the previous two years combined according to HVA head coach Diego Contreras. Sophomore Ian McNitt (120) led the way by finishing second. “He went out there and fought,” said Contreras, whose state qualifiers also included freshman Dawson Belitz (third, 106), junior Jonah Weston (285, fourth) and See WRESTLING on Page 5B

short despite 17 second-half points from junior post Lacy Cantrell, a first-team All-district honoree, and 14 from senior guard Katie Smartt. Hardin Valley (12-14), No. 5 district seed, was edged out by GCA 59-56. said. “We play in a tough district and this game shows just how tough our district is.” The Lady Rebels started the game with a vengeance. Brianna Tate scored outscored the Lady Hawks 15-13 in the opening frame and set the tone for a possible upset. She scored 24 points and carried West in the first half. She got some help from Kennedy Blalark, who scored 18 points before fouling out early in the fourth quarter. Tate was injured midway through the final frame but returned to a hit a 3-pointer that knotted the game at 57 with 41 seconds left setting the stage for the wild finish.

Bulldogs From page 3B

Bearden, which trailed 33-26 at halftime, finally took its first lead of the contest when Graham hit three free throws to make the score 40-37 midway through the third quarter. The Irish would answer and close the frame on a 6-2 run and regain the lead when Henry’s longrange shot went in as time expired. In the fourth quarter, it was Campbell and Austin Duncan who would take control. Campbell, who finished with 12 points, opened the quarter with a pair of layups. Duncan, who finished with 11 points and 13 rebounds, scored six points in the final frame and hit a pair of clinching free throws with 13.4 seconds left. The boys had some trouble with Catholic but the Bearden girls had an easy time with the Lady Irish. KCHS’s Hannah McCormick scored the game’s first basket before the Lady Bulldogs (22-6) closed the opening quarter on a 12-3 run. Catholic (12-14) made only two field goals in the first quarter. After McCormick scored, the Lady Irish offense was quiet until Susan Kenny hit a 3-pointer late in the frame. KCHS would make only two field goals in the second stanza. The Lady Irish made 8-of-8 free throws to keep things relatively close as Bearden led 31-17 at halftime. The Lady Bulldogs had no trouble scoring as their three seniors sparked a balanced offensive attack. Erin Walsh scored a gamehigh 19 points. Lexus Norwood added 11 and Tyler Carter finished with eight. Bearden juniors Olivia Pfeifer and Madison Rice also scored some big points for the Lady Bulldogs, who look to make a return trip to the Class AAA state tournament. Rice came off the bench to score eight points and Pfeifer added six. BHS coach Justin Underwood was happy to see his three seniors finish the regular season on a win-

ning note. “I’m very proud of these seniors,” he said. “We were 10-16 their freshman year and now they’ve brought this program back. “The last three years, we’ve had more than 20 wins.” Walsh said she knows the team’s job isn’t finished. “This was a good solid win for us and we needed this because after

Wednesday [in the district tournament], it’s win or go home.” Carter is proud of her teammates but said she knows that the hard work is just beginning. “I think we’ve come a long way since our freshman year,” she said. “But we have a lot of work left to do and now, we just have to take things one game at a time.”
