Fundraiser for Parkinson’s Saturday at Fox Den CC ■
ROBBY O’DANIEL firstname.lastname@example.org
The KiMe Fund fourth annual Shakin’ Not Stirred Parkinson’s Fundraiser will take place from 7 p.m. to midnight, Saturday, April 12, at Fox Den Country Club.
The event will benefit the KiMe Fund, Leslie McDermott, KiMe Fund board member, said. All the money from the fund goes toward Parkinson’s research, she added. “In fact, recently on Nov. 5, we donated $25,000 to the Michael
J. Fox Foundation, so that’s the kind of research we fund.” This year’s event has a James Bond theme, she said. A silent auction begins at 7 p.m. Dinner begins at 8 p.m., and See KIME on Page 3A

McGill prepares Volunteers for second term celebrated ■
Town hosts annual FUN Volunteer/Committee Banquet
ALAN SLOAN email@example.com
The path seems clear for Farragut Mayor Ralph McGill to end his mayoral service to the Town at roughly nine-and-a-quarter years, serving well into 2018. Taking office April 23, 2009 — ending then Mayor Eddy Ford’s four-term mayoral run with his first elected office victory — McGill’s first bid for reelection in 2014 has a uncontested path ballot wise. Looking ahead on his wish list, McGill, 71, said, “I sure would like us to make a dent on filling some of the empty spaces on Kingston Pike. Turkey Creek is full. I know everybody wants to be on Turkey Creek, but that’s not going to happen anymore. “We’ve got prime space with a lot of exposure with traffic on Kingston Pike,” he added. “I think we need to work on getting Kingston Pike pretty active again.” As for Town recreation, “We’re going to continue to make amenities for the parks, keep expanding what we have,” McGill said, adding he would like to see “a couple more at least” of artificial rectangular fields “so we could support major tournaments” in soccer, lacrosse or any other sport using a rectangular field. “We have a lot of people clamoring for tennis courts, too,” he
Mayor Ralph McGill
added. “I’d like to be able to do something about that.” Looking to roads, McGill sounded a note of caution. “We’ve got Concord Road widening coming at some point, although with the status for funding with TDOT it may be pushed back some,” he said. “The
Federal Highway Trust Fund is basically broke. So getting money from the feds to help on some of these bigger projects is going to be more difficult.” As for developing the historic Russell House at the corner for Kingston See MCGILL on Page 4A

As the country observes National Volunteer Month, the town of Farragut celebrated the contributions of its volunteers. The Town recognized those volunteers during its annual FUN Volunteer/Committee Banquet Friday, April 4, at Fox Den Country Club. “They don’t’ call us the ‘Volunteer State’ for nothing,” Farragut Mayor Ralph McGill said. “We certainly do have our fair share of [volunteers] in Tennessee and the town of Farragut. “We couldn’t be what we are without the volunteers,” he added. “We don’t pay you for it, but we sure reap the benefits.” McGill said 89 volunteers serve on 12 standing committees, and Town administrator David Smoak added some of those volunteers served on multiple committees at one time. The Town has another arm of volunteers, Farragut’s Unsung Navy, which began in January 1992, McGill said, adding these volunteers give their time working in Farragut Folklife Museum, helping with events and other duties.
McGill said, “In 2013, 112 FUN Volunteers donated 4,613.25 hours of service to the Town. The value to the Town is worth about $46,132.50 and is calculated on the scale recommended by the Points of Light Institute in Washington, D.C. About 116,905 volunteer hours have been donated to the town of Farragut since the inception of the FUN Volunteer Program in 1992 equaling an estimated overall value of $1,169,052. “That’s really money we avoided spending by using volunteers,” McGill added. The following FUN Volunteers were promoted in rank in 2013: Lieutenant (100 to 299 hours): Dixie Andrews, museum volunteer; Sandy Dean, Arts Council member and special events volunteer; Donna Genung, VITA tax assistance volunteer; Marian Howard, museum volunteer; Betty Scott, Beautification Committee member and museum volunteer; Valerie Whiting, museum volunteer, and Linda Wimbrow, special events volunteer.

Board OKs contract to develop architectural design guidelines
TAMMY CHEEK email@example.com
Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen is going ahead with its plans to develop architectural design guidelines. The Board voted unanimously to approve a $61,185 professional services contract for Winter & Company from Boulder, Colo., to develop the architectural design guidelines for the Town at its meeting March 13.
Alderman Ron Honken moved to approve the contract while Vice Mayor Dot LaMarche seconded the motion. The guidelines focus on businesses and possibly multi-level residences, such as apartment complexes. Gary Palmer, Town assistant administrator, said implementing the guidelines is in the Board’s Strategic Plan. The Town held a joint workshop between the Board,
Farragut Municipal Planning Commission, Visual Resources Review Board and the Economic Development Committee in order to ascertain thoughts on the direction to take with regard to Town-wide design guidelines Nov. 5, 2013. Town staff asked for feedback from those groups. While some who attended the meeting voiced concerns that guidelines should not be too restrictive, others were more concerned about the
designs the Town might choose to enforce. For example, some attendees said they did not want designs that were too dated. Nevertheless, Palmer said the overwhelming response was excitement about the future and that the Town needed to pursue the project. He said the staff then sought a request from firms to find ones qualified to develop the guidelines. “Consequently, the joint subcommittee, consisting of a plan-
ning commissioner, VRRB member, EDC member and Town staff agreed unanimously that Winter & Co. was the most qualified respondent,” Palmer said. “You may recall Winter & Co. was a sub-consultant working with Winston Associates Inc. on our comprehensive land use plan,” he added. “In fact, Noré Winter led the historical focus group discussion during our See CONTRACT on Page 4A

Commodore (1000-1999 hours): Mack Brooks, VITA tax assistance volunteer; Mary House, museum volunteer; Mona Smith, museum volunteer, and Wayne Speller, VITA tax assistance volunteer. Barbara Beeler, one of the FUN volunteers, was promoted to Admiral, the highest rank in the FUN Volunteer Program, for serving more than 3,000 volunteer hours in the gift shop and at special events. Beeler has been volunteering since 2004. “I just love history,” she said about volunteering in the Farragut Folklife Museum gift shop. Beeler said she started volunteering when a friend, the late Frances Abel, asked her to come in to the gift shop and help out. She became more active after
she retired in 2005. The late Lee Harlow was remembered for her volunteer work during the evening. Lee was a Captain in the FUN Volunteer Program who served as a museum and special events volunteer. The following committee volunteers were honored for their years of service to the Town: 5 Years: Sandy Dean, Arts Council; Nadia Kogeler, Parks and Athletics Council; Mark Lower, Board of Plumbing & Gas/Mechanical Examiners; Noah Myers, Municipal Planning Commission and Visual Resources Review Board, and Ed Whiting, Municipal Planning Commission and Stormwater Advisory Committee 10 Years: Pam Ziegler, Arts Council 15 Years: Clare Ansink, Beautification Committee; Gerry Gennoe, Beautification Committee, and Corky Ives, Board of Zoning Appeals 20 Years: Dee Henning, Folklife Museum Committee; Linda Johnson, Visual Resources Review Board; Duane Winkler, Computing and Telecommun-ications Planning Committee, Personnel Committee and Visual Resources Review Board. Johnson served on the committee that helped form the Town. Then, she decided to get on a committee as something to do, and she serves on the Visual Resources Review Committee. Johnson said she gets the satisfaction the Town does not have to pay someone to do what she does.

policereports • April 2: Knox County Sheriff’s Office responded to a report of a residential burglary off Allen Kirby Road. Victim stated the residence was rental property and when he stopped to check on it he noticed someone had tampered with the garage door. When he opened the garage door he found a silver Ford Mustang that did not belong at the residence. The vehicle was reported stolen several days beforehand. Officers observed the rear sliding glass door had been forced open. The vehicle was recovered and towed to Cedar Bluff Towing. • April 2: A representative of Blue Ridge Mountain Sports off Kingston Pike in Farragut reported to police an unknown amount of clothing was stolen by a pair of unknown female suspects. The females took the clothing and took flight when the front door alarm sounded. The pair got into an awaiting vehicle with a male seated in the back. Complainant called one of the chain’s other stores and advised them of the theft. Complainant stated the male suspect tried to return the clothing at the other location. The manager went outside and took photos of the suspect vehicle.
• March 31: Police responded to a robbery call at First Tennessee Bank off Kingston Pike in Farragut. Victim told police an unknown suspect wearing all black with his face and hands covered and carrying a brown leather bag entered the bank through the east side door and told the staff to not press any buttons. The suspect jumped over the teller counter and demanded the victim give him the big money as he drew a handgun from the brown leather bag. The victim and another teller opened their cash drawers and the suspect began taking the money. The suspect jumped back over the counter and exited the bank through the east side door. He escaped in a silver Ford Mustang with black top traveling eastbound on Kingston Pike. KCSO and the Federal Bureau of Investigation responded to the scene. • March 30: Police were advised an unknown suspect vandalized two buildings in the Village Green neighborhood. Complainant stated it appeared as though the suspect smeared a mixture of mustard, mayonnaise, cake icing and food coloring all over the side paneling of the buildings and the concrete surrounding them. Complainant stated the pool
house received slightly more damage than the clubhouse. • March 27: Police arrested seven suspects on a variety of charges after a KCSO deputy, who was shopping in Gander Mountain outdoor sporting goods store off Parkside Drive in Farragut, was advised by one of the store’s workers a group of people were shoplifting and attempting to leave the store. The officer located the suspects, who were driving a blue 2002 Hyundai Santa Fe, at Newk’s restaurant off Parkside Drive in Farragut and observed one suspect running away from the vehicle into the restaurant and observed another suspect get out of the vehicle and run behind another nearby vehicle. It was behind the other vehicle where two boxes of Blazer ammunition was found. Prior to a pat down, one suspect informed officers she was carrying a couple of needles used for consuming drugs. Another suspect refused consent to search her vehicle. A K9 officer was dispatched to the scene and soon “alerted” on the vehicle. Upon a police search, 13 more boxes of ammunition were

An entertainment casino also will be at the event, she said. “[The KiMe Fund] is local in that it’s established through the East Tennessee Foundation, but we have board members from many states,” she said. “We have a board member in Michigan. We have a board member in Washington D.C. We have a board member down in Texas.” The fund had an event in Houston previously, she said, with other events in the works in other cities as well.

vision came to me to create the KiMe Fund that would focus on finding a cure for Parkinson’s,” he said. “So basically what I did is I went home, and I wrote an operating agreement. I then spent the next four to six months recruiting board members, advisory board members. I’ve created a board of 11 advisors from four different states that have expertise in medicine, finance, fundraising, business and I also have a lawyer that’s on that board. ... The purpose was to raise money that will be used to fund research that will hopefully provide the best chance for finding a cure.” The KiMe Fund is named after Hodges’ two daughters, Kim and Megan. “It’s symbolic of our drive to find a cure before the next generation of children everywhere are diagnosed,” he said. From Hodges’ perspective, he said eradication of Parkinson’s could be a cure; but more probably, he added, the cure is the earlier detection. knew the stolen ammunition was in the rear of her vehicle. Also during the search, a knife with a length of about 7 inches was found between the driver’s seat and the driver’s door of which the owner of the vehicle claimed ownership and that her son had placed the knife where it was found. Two of the female suspects remain in the Knox County Detention Facility on parole violation warrants. Value of the stolen ammunition was about $1,000. The vehicle was towed to Cedar Bluff Towing where it will be held until a seizure hearing has taken place on the vehicle.

Pointing to his accomplishments, McGill recalled his original campaign platform and said the Town now is “friendly to business.” “I said, ‘We’re going to have term limits,’ we have,” McGill added. “I said, ‘We’re going to change our election years so it’s convenient for people to vote rather than have an election out there by ourselves with no interest in it,’ and we did that.” No opposing candidates threw their hat into the ring by the Knox County Election Commission deadline of noon, Thursday, April 3. Barring a successful write-in candidacy on Election Day, Thursday, Aug. 7, that would be of unprecedented success in Town political history, McGill will remain mayor into early August 2018.

Winter & Co. is charged with developing a proposal illustrating the minimum professionally necessary while keeping cost to a minimum.
• Farragut Town Board operates very similarly to the passage of Obamacare, pass it and we will find out what they did. On April 3 the Community Development department presented a “Home Improvement Pitfalls — A General Code Overview for Homeowners and Builders.” We are all aware how few people attend these meetings, It would be far more honest and reasonable to publish a detailed booklet in simple English, not legalese, detailing all the rules and regulations of these codes, when they were passed and distributed to all taxpaying residents. We are entitled to know what has been passed. My last visit to Town Hall I was informed Farragut has no records prior to 1985! That seems ridicules since the Board is pressing the Historical significance of Farragut. We are all living at the mercy of the Town Board [that] seems to be running [its] own little fiefdom. Clean up your act and be honest with the residents of Farragut! Editor’s Note: According to Town staff much of the information presented at the “Home Improvement Pitfalls — A General Code Overview for Homeowners and Builders” workshop is available at

One way in which the new Knoxville TVA Employees Credit Union, 11490 Parkside Drive, stands out from other branch locations is its hours. Most of the other branches open at 8:30 a.m. Most of the branches close at 5 p.m. Mondays, Tuesdays and Thursdays, and 6 p.m. Fridays, said Jayne Walshaw, marketing director with this credit union. In addition, some branches close at 12:30 p.m. Wednesdays, she said, adding that hours vary by location. But the new Parkside Drive branch, which opened Tuesday, Feb. 18, opens at 10 a.m. and closes at 8 p.m. Mondays through Fridays, Walshaw said. “For the retail businesses and for the retail employees in that area, we wanted to be available to them on their schedule and not just on a typical bank schedule,” she said.

all the gourmet blends of seasoning that we have and showcasing those. ... It’s going to be a place where everything is made from scratch. ... In our minds, we’ve perfected the wings, and now we’re going to showcase those as well as all else we can do.” The restaurant will offer “some unique sandwiches off the grill, some unique items off of the smoker,” Beeler said. “We’ll offer a variety of different salads. ... It’s a small menu because I believe in doing a few things and doing them exceptionally well, but we also do specials all throughout the week where we showcase some of the other items that we enjoy. And that’s including steak nights, possible Italian nights and some seasonal items as well,” he added. The family recipe for BKW Seasonings’ original seasoning – BKW Original Gourmet — dates back to the 1960s, and this seasoning, along with other offerings, will be available at the restaurant, Beeler said, “as well as local groceries.”
A new restaurant, Big Kahuna Wings Bar & Grill, is coming to the former Ott’s Barbecue building, 12828 Kingston Pike. Matt Beeler co-owns the restaurant with his sister, Allison Gohn. The projected opening date of the restaurant is in May, Beeler said. For six-and-a-half years, Beeler has owned BKW Seasonings, based out of Knoxville. “I am the founder of the annual Big Kahuna Wing Festival that goes on downtown,” he said. The BKW in the name came from Big Kahuna Wings, a restaurant Beeler founded “just off The Strip” in the middle to late 1990s, he said. The restaurant was open for around three years and closed due to personal reasons, Beeler added. Will this new restaurant be similar to the restaurant from the ‘90s? “Yes and no,” he said. “The wings obviously, which was our staple, will definitely be our staple as well.

‘Marvelous’ win for Ads vs. BHS ■
ALAN SLOAN firstname.lastname@example.org
If he’s “Marvelous,” perhaps Marvin Mendy’s other nickname, “A Goal a Game,” is just about right. Almost always coming through with at least “a goal a game” since his sophomore season according to Farragut head coach Wallie Culbreth, this senior star outdid anything in his FHS career Friday night, April 4, at home against archrival Bearden. “Four Goals” Admirals 6 Mendy. Bulldogs 1 “This is a first for me,” Mendy, 6-foot-6 forward, said about scoring four goals in one game in a 6-1 victory for the nation’s No. 2-ranked Admirals. “It’s better to happen against Bearden. It’s always great to score against Bearden.” “Once he gets in the game, and he gets zoned, he’s ‘A Goal a Game,’” Culbreth said about Mendy. “And that’s not me that made up that name, that’s other coaches.” After a Mendy header off an Ethan Snow corner kick put Farragut up 1-0 in the 37th minute, another of his headers plus two open looks on non-set plays helped the Admirals explode with five goals in the game’s final 23 minutes. “We had so many chances. We kept pushing up, pushing up,” Mendy added. Kai Miettinen, senior center-
midfielder, added the final two goals — going over to the Admirals student section and exchanging formal greetings after both goals — as Farragut improved to 5-0 overall. The Bulldogs fell to 4-4. “That gets the whole team fired up and it gets the fans fired up,” Miettinen said about his fun with the student section. “It’s just a great environment. It’s awesome.” The Admirals skipper also praised Miettinen and the rest of his center-midfielders: Snow, Fletcher Eckern and Ryan Coughenour. “They owned the game,” Culbreth said. “That’s where you win or lose the game, and I’ve got a combination of probably the best four midfielders in the state. And a lot of people must agree with me because we’re ranked No. 2 in the nation.” Jameson Elmore’s header off an assist from Gabe Alvarez was Bearden’s lone goal, coming in the 74th minute. Randall Bishop, SoccerDawgs freshman goalkeeper, said, “We need to step it up overall, and we kind of just shut down near the end.” Among Bearden’s first eight opponents, “There in the top so far,” Bishop added about Farragut. Eric Turner, BHS head coach, said his team “played good for about 50 minutes, and then … they kind of stepped it up and we were a step behind the rest of the game. They made us pay for it, and when you do that against a See MARVELOUS on Page 10A

Lady Ads bring the heat 12-3 ■
ROBBY O’DANIEL email@example.com
The Farragut Lady Admirals (11-6, 6-2) softball team defeated the Hardin Valley Lady Hawks 123 on a chilly, overcast Monday night April 7, at HVA. “I just thought we played solid, solid defense, two or three outstanding defensive plays we made, MC [first baseman Mary Claire Coyne] made one at first,” Farragut head coach David Moore said. “Avery [Blankenburg] made a sliding catch at Lady Admirals 12 c e n t e r. Lady Hawks 3 N i k i [Slone] made a good play on a diving ball, tagging the bag at second. So we played some solid defense and had timely hitting. We just took advantage of opportunities and some timely hitting.” The Lady Hawks took an early 1-0 lead in the second inning off an RBI base-hit from centerfielder Chelsey Texeira. But in the top half of the third, the Lady Ads tied it when third baseman Lexee Lamoree batted in a run. Lamoree scored off a bunt by Coyne for the Lady Ads to take a 2-1 lead. Farragut would keep the lead for the rest of the game. In the bottom half of the third inning, Coyne made a diving grab

at first for an out and then tagged first base with her glove to complete a double play. “Those are kind of like my favorite plays to make at first base,” Coyne said. “And so, when I just saw a line drive down the line, I just knew that I had to catch it. ... And then I tagged the bag.” The Ads tacked on two runs in the fourth and four in the fifth to

The Lady Hawks’ Kaleigh Wynne hit a two-run home run in the bottom of the fifth to make it 8-3, but Farragut answered with their own two-run home run in the top of the sixth, courtesy of outfielder Shelby Miller to make the score to 10-3 Admirals.

Bearden momentum washed away by CBHS ■
ALAN SLOAN firstname.lastname@example.org
Christian Brothers High School of Memphis was coming off its first loss of the season. Bearden was coming off a pair of victories. Any SoccerDawgs momentum, however, must have been washed away by the wet, rainy conditions during play in annual Bearden Invitational Saturday evening, March 29, at BHS’s Bruce Allender Field. Converting two first-half penalty k i c k s Purple Wave 6 w h i l e Bulldogs 2 building a 3-1 lead at halftime, the Purple Wave continued to dominate in the second half and won easily, 6-2. Eric Turner, BHS head coach, said the Purple Wave “definitely” was the best team his Bulldogs had faced in its first six games (3-3 record). “They move the ball around real well, and they’re physical. Just aggressive and fast and we were just slow and timid,” Turner added. “All the opposite of that. … They just made us look silly. We didn’t have very much pride today, or work rate.” The bottom line: “We weren’t here today and Christian Brothers was,” Turner said. “That’s the kind of result we got.” Coming off a 1-0 loss to Maryville the previous day, CBHS improved to 4-1 after beating the SoccerDawgs. Bearden’s goals were scored by sophomore Gabe Alvarez, who
converted a first-half penalty kick, and Ian Schomer, who added a second-half goal. Though only .500 after six games, the Bulldogs did win their first two Invitational games: 3-2 versus Gallatin Thursday, March 27, and 4-0 against Arlington, Friday, March 28. “In the first two games, Gabe Alvarez [forward] played very well, and Nathan Stripling [junior defender],” Turner said. “We played really well in those games. But those teams aren’t in the same class as Christian Brothers, that’s for sure,” Turner added. Schomer said CBHS “is the best team we’ve played just because of their possession style and their quick pace.” As for the wet field conditions and constant light rain affecting play, “For them, a lot of times if they weren’t completely accurate, [the ball] would skip right out of bounds,” Schomer said. “For us, the long balls we’d play over the defense would usually skip right into the keeper, so those were unfortunate.” Rogerio Lima, Christian Brothers head coach, has won three Division II state championships while finishing runnerup five other times in his first 11 years as Purple Wave head coach. “I think we had moments of good soccer,” Lima said. “I don’t think it was our best game.” Lima said his team travels more than 350 miles east to play in Bearden Invitational because of “the competition level, the adversity, playing away from home, seeing teams that poten-

SPREAD THE WORD D R O W E H T D N E O T
Farragut High School’s annual campaign to Spread the Word to End the Word — retarded — climaxed with a walk-around-the-track fundraiser at FHS’s Bill Clabo Field Friday evening, March 7. Dozens of FHS students, including several cheerleaders and dance team members, joined families and friends of intellectually challenged students plus a handful of teachers and administrators. In addition to walking laps, program sponsors sold T-shirts while participants pitched horseshoes and enjoyed some laughs and lighthearted fun. Emma Bennett, FHS senior, received huge applause after singing the National Anthem to begin the evening.

enth to win 12-3. “We have to go to work every day,” Hardin Valley head coach Whitney Cruze said. “The girls know what we have to do to win a ballgame. Our defense needs to improve.

She went 3-for-3 with a walk and the tworun home run. In her last at-bats of the game, with two outs and her team down 12-3, Wynne battled before getting a basehit through the middle.

school,” Meeks said. “We’re looking really good. I’m feeling really confident,” Meeks added. “We’ve got a really strong defense and a really dynamic midfield as well as a lot of speed up top.” Junior forward Shawn Foster had a foot involved in both HVA first-half tallies: one goal, one assist. The first goal came on a 5-yard shot from the leftside in the sixth minute, “I just felt the ball was in the play for me, and I didn’t see the angled shot so I just decided to take the touch in and just finished it,” Foster said. Ivan Torres, senior forward, assisted Foster. Cameron Schneider, HVA junior
forward, scored the second goal from about 12 yards out following Foster’s nice touch pass, at the box line, to the left in the 24th minute. “I was looking for the end-post shot, didn’t see it, so I knew Cameron was on my [left] side,” Foster said. “I just touched it in and he finished it well.” Foster labeled the Hawks first half as “great,” but added that after halftime, “We struggled possessing the ball. But I think we did well overall.” Mike McLean, HVA head coach, said, “We’re just happy to get the result. Every time we play Lenoir City it’s a close game. When we went there last year I think it was 2-2.” Individually, McLean praised Foster and Kyle Pacelli, HVA senior defensive center-midfielder.

About the Panthers’ increased offensive pressure in the second half despite not scoring, “We tended to give them a few set pieces, which they created some chances off of. Obviously when they’re down two they’re going push forward a bit more,” McLean said. Panthers assist coach Trevor Howell took over after LCHS head coach Santiago Correa was redcarded and ejected for vehemently arguing with the referee early in the second half. Correa was escorted out of the stadium area by Knox County Schools security. “To be honest, I think we were a more skilled team, a faster team,” Howell said. “But we just came out, we couldn’t possess the ball like we usually do.”

FHS, Einstein Bros. team up to feed hungry FHS NAHS members help teach Einstein employees bowl making 101
ALAN SLOAN firstname.lastname@example.org
With Einstein Bros. Bagels’ annual Empty Bowls soup fundraiser Thursday, April 17, employees have been getting the hang of ceramic bowl-making. “We did have some work days where some employees got to go in and actually make some bowls, too,” Elizabeth Kidder, Einstein marketing manager and event “facilitator,” said about visits to Farragut High School ceramics classes Tuesdays and Thursdays dating back to January. “Not just old Farragut students, but just members of our crew who had never even been to [FHS] came in and made bowls. “I would say that at least 10 of our crew members came in, not just once but a couple of times, to build and then glaze their bowls.” “My students taught them,” Wendie Love, FHS art teacher and founder of Empty Bowls fundraiser in 2001, said. “And then my ceramics students that
are part of National Art Honor Society [event sponsor] also taught other National Honor students. Some are throw, some are hand-built, but the new people who had not made bowls before made hand-made bowls. “And also an appreciation for the craft for how difficult it is,” Love added. “When they’re not successful right away it’s shocking to them.” This year’s annual fundraising gathering at Einstein (11693 Parkside Drive) for the fourth straight year (third in Farragut), where ticket-buying customers purchase a decorated ceramic bowl full of soup with a side bagel, runs from 6 to 8 p.m. Though the walk-in store will close at 6 p.m., regular customers can use Einstein’s drivethru service from 6 to 8 p.m. While this year’s proceeds benefit FISH Pantry, the annual purpose is to remember those worldwide with “empty bowls” and nothing edible to fill them. See EMPTY BOWLS on Page 2B

Because Marissa Vincent dared to become Hardin Valley Academy’s first female wrestler, a handful of eight-graders who will attend HVA next fall have signed up to follow in her footsteps. Vincent’s interest in wrestling,
starting her junior year, stems from she and her cousins “beating each other up” in pick-up wrestling, figuring “why not” try high school wrestling? “I ended up loving it,” Vincent said, adding that cousins Shawnee Foster, an HVA junior and former See VINCENT on Page 6B

FHS NJROTC seeking Knox Field meet 3-peat
ALAN SLOAN firstname.lastname@example.org
Fulton High School again will be the site where Farragut High School Navy Junior ROTC looks to culminate another successful season of drill and athletic competition. The two-time defending overall champion in Knox County NJROTC Field Meet, Farragut will be among a field including Bearden NJROTC plus units including host Fulton, Karns and Anderson County during morning and early afternoon hours, Friday, April 11. “They’ll be anywhere from six to eight teams up there,” Master Sgt. Jimmy Johnson, FHS Naval science instructor, said. Of the school’s 65 NJROTC
cadets, Johnson said he anticipates “25 to 30” performing athletically Friday. “There’s many different events, and there’s many different cadets that could participate. Some of them are electing not to,” Johnson said. Looking ahead to Fulton and the big athletic showdown, “Over the years we’ve always done really well in athletics, push-ups, situps, the running and all that,” Farragut NJROTC Cadet Cmdr. T.N. Phan, a senior, said. “And we’ve been working really hard to achieve our goals. I would love to see another year of us winning some more trophies. “It’s probably one of the bigger ones that we’ve had,” said NJROTC Chief Petty Officer See NJROTC on Page 4B
In my work as a reformed slob turned writer to help moms get organized, I get a lot of mail from my readers.

I get the nec- Young essary Make it business Fun! taken care of, but not in an efficient or organized manner. As you know, this takes a great toll on one's peace. I watched my mom go from a vibrant and charismatic ball of disorganized fire to a burned out shadow of her former self as she got older and her ability to pull off anything at the last minute deteriorated. She felt helpless and useless although she was still greatly beloved by many. In an effort to learn from her experience, I have tried and
failed to become a model of organization. I have tried, I have failed, but I have not given up! A good friend of mine pointed out that I had many other characteristics that were great blessings to the world, but I whined that I really, really, really wanted to be organized. She then told me that although I wasn't naturally organized, I could still pursue being organized as a hobby. This was a revolutionary thought and one that tickled me to my very core! Since that conversation,(about 2 months ago), I have been reading and thinking about my new "hobby." Where before, I always felt guilty about my inability to succeed, now I just think of any time or money spent on this as a reasonable pursuit of a longstanding interest. As a result, I really think that I am going to get organized because the benefits appeal to me, and the process is infinitely fascinating when looked at from this angle. First I bought The Sidetracked Sister’s Happiness File, and then, I decided that I really wanted to understand the basis of your work so I broke down and bought Sidetracked Home Executives: from Pigpen to Paradise and have actually read that too. I am beginning to get a glimmer of how this might all work. So, I
plan to begin another campaign; however, this time I am coming at it from the hobby approach so the feeling of desperation (fear of failure) has been replaced by one of pleasant anticipation.

Grace Khalsa, Farragut NAHS president, also built bowls last school year. NAHS senior Sarah Lowrey said it was through ceramics that she “found a passion for creating work to express feelings.”
Her empty bowl creations included paintings of “different types of whales” tying into “whales becoming endangered due to hunting.” Senior Brianna Weiss, NAHS member, said “over 100 bowls” have been made in a process that began in early January. “Just being a part of the community and being able to give back with skill sets that we’ve learned in ceramics,” Weiss added about the joy of creating bowls.

Love, Ina I think this is a fabulous way to look at this thing we call organization! By calling it a hobby, there’s no pressure and when there’s no pressure we take the stress out of our resolutions. Nelly (my inner child) would’ve loved that notion back in 1977 when I decided to get organized once and for all. Even though I didn’t know she existed back then, my reason to get organized was so that I’d have more free time to play! So a “hobby” that allows more free time to play is a woo hoo moment for me! Thank you Ina! To see what Pam’s got up her cyber-sleeve, check out www.housefairy.org. In an effort to help kids with messy rooms get organized before they get homes of their own to trash, Pam created the House Fairy. When the House Fairy speaks, kids listen. Moms, you’ll have to see it to believe it. www.housefairy.org

5 FHS mathematics students top five nationwide
ALAN SLOAN email@example.com
Farragut High School mathematics accomplishments, acco-rding to one impressive indicator, rose fivefold earlier this year. Rising in a manner that catches the eye of major universities including Massachusetts Institute of Technology, Cal Tech and Stanford. Five FHS students each scored in the top five percent among 55,608 top mathematics students nationwide taking American Mathematics Council national exam earlier this year. “That’s the first year we had had any AMC student [qualifier] in probably two or three years,” Angie Buckman, FHS honors precalculus and advanced placement statistics teacher, said about the five advancing to earn a shot at American Invit-ational Mathematics Exam-ination last week (results pending): seniors Akshay Soni and Lam Tran, juniors Don Joo and Jason Fu and sophomore Daniel Yan. “The best kids take this test,” she added. “They are in the top five percent of the best kids in the nation. “I was ecstatic. In the past we have probably averaged about one student a year making AIME. And to get five in one year, that’s pretty phenomenal.” Moreover, “Right now, MIT asks what your AIME score is on their application. They don’t ask if you made AIME, they ask what your AIME score was,” Buckman said. “A lot of the upper-crust schools are using it to delineate students.”
NJROTC From page 2B
Bailey Holland, a junior, who also is a public affairs officer. Despite some attrition in its athletic numbers this school year, Farragut NJROTC “has grown a stronger bond with these other cadets,” Phan said. “I feel we’re becoming more of a family.” During spring semester, Farragut NJROTC was part of a highly successful drill meet at Central High School Feb. 17.
“With the ACT, almost everybody that goes to Harvard or MIT makes a perfect score or close,” Buckman added. “This is just a further delineation within kids of that subset. It’s a much harder test than the ACT. … At MIT, 75 percent of their kids make a perfect score on the math portion of the SAT.” The five answered 25 multichoice “hard” AIME questions, Buckman said. “Probably about 20 to 25 percent of the information, the content of the test, is something that they have to learn outside of the classroom. It shows their initiative, it shows their interest.” Joo said, “I was a little worried, but I had prepared a lot for this exam. I had been anticipating getting in the top five percent since last year. And when I didn’t make it I tried to work harder to get it this time.” Tran said he and his qualifying classmates “ are always up for a challenge,” adding the five are studying off a “CD off all the problems from past [AIME] tests, so we’re working on that to see if there are any patterns that show up.” Yan said, “I was very surprised and also very honored because there’s lots of very intelligent people at our school, and they all work really hard.” “If they do well on AIME [top five percent], then they can go to the next level, which is USAMO. That’s like going to a convention over the summer,” Buckman added. “… It’s only about 30 students nationally.”
“We came out pretty good, we finished first or second in most events,” Johnson said about a seven-team field including other Knox County ROTC units plus Anderson County and Loudon high schools. Phan said about the Central competition, “I thought we did pretty well. … The things that we practiced really shone in the events.” Cadet Lt. Jr. Grade Bradlee Webster, a junior, also is the unit’s operations officer. At Central, “I thought we did
like really super good,” Webster said. However, though the unit “placed very well,” Webster added, “I thought we could have done better. “At some points our alignment was really good and other times it was off a little bit. We all hit our pivots correctly, kept our bearing and all that stuff.” A drill meet at West High School March 14 wasn’t quite as successful according to the final rankings, Johnson said.

Local Easter egg hunting choices ■ ROBBY O’DANIEL
A number of Easter egg hunts are taking place in the area as the holiday approaches. Faith Lutheran Church is having an Easter egg hunt starting at 11 a.m., Saturday, April 19, at the church. “Registration is required, so we know how many children are coming,” said Mary Boring, office manager at Faith Lutheran Church, said. “They can visit our website at www.faithloves.org for information on how to register.” The registration deadline is Wednesday, April 16, she said. The Easter egg hunt at Farragut Presbyterian Church is a backwards one, said Katina Sharp, children’s and youth min-
istries director at Farragut Presbyterian Church, said. “A backwards Easter egg hunt is when the children search for Easter eggs, and after they find them, they will be empty,” Sharp said. “All the eggs are hidden empty.” The children then fill the eggs together with symbols of Jesus Christ’s resurrection and passion, she said. They’ll also hear the story of the resurrection and passion of Christ. “They will be able to take home a set of 12 eggs, so they can tell the story on their own,” she said. The Easter egg hunt will start at 9:45 a.m. on Easter morning, Sunday, April 20, at the church, she said. “Weather permitting, we’d like
to do it outside,” she said. “If the weather’s nasty, then we’ll do it in the fellowship hall.” The backwards egg hunt is open to the public, she said. First Farragut United Methodist Church is having an Easter egg hunt, also open to the public, from 2 to 4 p.m., Saturday, April 12. Jackie Davis, administrative assistant with First Farragut United Methodist Church, said the hunt would be at the church. Farragut Christian Church’s Easter egg hunt is Saturday, April 19, at the church. “We’re having a glow-in-thedark Easter egg hunt,” church secretary Linda Coombs said. The egg hunt will be both See EASTER on Page 6B
Distemper outbreak: should I be concerned? Q: Recently, I have heard about outbreaks of distemper at some local animal shelters. I think my dog is vaccinated for it. Should I be concerned? M.T., Farragut A: Yes, there have been outbreaks of the canine distemper virus at a couple of different shelters in and near Knoxville over the 6-8 months. It is important to note that these outbreaks involved both puppies and adult dogs, so unvaccinated dogs of any age are at risk. Stephanie Canine distemper, Myers Ask closely related to the Vet the human measles, is a contagious virus that can be easily spread through coughing, sneezing, and shared food/water bowls.
At an animal shelter, where puppies and adult dogs often enter the shelter with unknown medical histories and are in close quarters, a virus like this can spread quickly. Most shelters vaccinate animals upon entry to the shelter, but it is not always known which pets may be have been already exposed and/or are shedding the virus, but not clinically ill yet. Clinical signs of distemper are many and varied. Dogs typically begin with runny eyes and/or nose. Symptoms can progress to fever, poor appetite, coughing, vomiting, diarrhea, and pneumonia. Infected puppies and dogs are treated with supportive care, as no antiviral drugs have proven effective against distemper. Some will experience neurological signs, including seizures. These pets have a much poorer prognosis for full recovery; fatalities do occur. Severity of disease and recovery is quite variable among dogs, and is likely due to individual immune responses related to previous
exposure, vaccination, or in the case of puppies, maternal antibodies. It is impossible to predict which pets will recover. There is a very effective vaccine for distemper, and is part of vaccine series for puppies, starting at 6-8 weeks of age. Adult dogs should be vaccinated every 1-3 years, depending on the type of vaccine administered. Since there has been a vaccine for distemper available for over 50 years, the disease was uncommon for years. There seems to be a resurgence of distemper the past five years or so, especially in the shelter, rescue, and stray populations. Especially when there is an outbreak locally, it is important to keep your puppy or adult dog current on vaccines. If you have concerns regarding your dog’s vaccine status or the need for vaccinations, please talk to your veterinarian. If you have a question about your pet, you may email lcac@lenoircityanimalclinic. com

high school wrestler, and Andrew Foster, a freshman, “are the main reason that I wrestle.” For Vincent, breaking barriers is becoming a yearly reality: coming off a fourth-place TSSAA state finish in the girls’ 112-pound class as an HVA senior in February, Vincent took fifth statewide in February 2013 at Cumberland County as
An Easter egg hunt starts at St. John Neumann Catholic Church beginning at 1 p.m., Saturday, April 19, Phyllis Denning, parish secretary, said.
“We are asking for donations to be brought to the church office. ... Candy can be brought to the church office, but the Easter egg hunt itself starts in the school
cafeteria,” Denning said. Concord United Methodist Church is having its Easter egg hunt from 12 to 2 p.m., Sunday, April 13 Kim Mink, director of
family ministries at CUMC, said. It is open to the public, Mink said.
that school’s first-ever female wrestler. The bottom line payoff for Vincent, 18, is a “full ride” scholarship to join King University’s Women’s Wrestling program (Bristol). She made it official during a signing ceremony in HVA library Wednesday, March 12. “It’s important for us to remember that she broke a lot of barriers and did something special for our wrestling team,” HVA wrestling
head coach Diego Contreras said to a gathering of family, teammates, classmates and athletic director/assistant principal George Ashe. “She’s only the second wrestler in our school’s history to have placed at state,” Contreras added. “It’s pretty remarkable.” Ashe announced to the gathering that Vincent’s accomplishments “have brought a lot of notoriety to the school.”
Benson finished with a 12-5 overall record (all against girls) as an HVA senior — all 12 wins by pins. “At the beginning it was funny, because [Contreras] didn’t know what to do with me,” Vincent said. Regularly sparring and practicing with the Hawks’ 106-pound class boys, Vincent said Contreras “has taught me more than I could ever have imagined. He’s finetuned all the things I didn’t quite get.
“I honestly couldn’t be where I am without him.” Contreras said his team “accepted Marissa right away as just one of the other wrestlers.” “She worked with our 106pounders for the most part,” Contreras added after the ceremony. “There were times when she’d get a good crossface on somebody or take somebody down. So they knew and respected her abilities as a wrestler.”

Other teams were The Rotary Club of Farragut (defending champ), The Rotary Club of Turkey Creek Sunset, Kirkland Keepers (Costco) and The Tile Drivers (Drive 4 Life Academy). About her team’s temporary elimi-
nation, Guest said, “I was depressed.” And because it was her garbled pronunciation that caused the problem, “I felt stupid. … I felt I let the team down. “I was very nervous.” However, when it was announced the ruling was reversed, “I couldn’t believe it,” Guest said.
