FHS alumni host grand reunion Saturday, May 3 ■

File photo

Lloyd Delaney, Farragut High School Class of 1950, left, and Bill Longmire, FHS Class of 1954, share some memories while Delaney looks over a photo album during last year’s FHS Grand Reunion.


It’s that time of year when Farragut High School senior citizen alumni begin planning for their “grand” gathering. Annual FHS Grand Reunion, which dates back to the mid-1990s according to event organizer George Hamilton (Class of 1943), will run from 8 a.m. to noon, Saturday, May 3, in Virtue Cumberland Presbyterian Church Family

Life Center off Virtue Road. “Bring your kids and your family. You can bring anybody you want to,” Hamilton said about alumni who aren’t limited to just bringing a non-alumni spouse. “We cut through the baloney, and everybody just has a good time and reminisces with their friends and classmates and all that stuff,” Hamilton added. Cost is $5, Hamilton

said, and can be paid at the door. Refreshments include “coffee and donuts,” Hamilton added. An array of old FHS annuals and yesteryear photographs will be laid out on rows of tables for all to enjoy and use as references for reminiscing. Graduates from the late 1930s and early 1940s were the most “grand” of all attendees last year. In all, “about 80 something” attended in 2013 at Virtue Family Life Center,

Virtue Cumberland Presbyterian Church congregation members celebrated Easter as the sun rose over the trees early Sunday morning. About 70 of Virtue Church’s 100 members gathered just before 7 a.m., Sunday, April 20, as the dawn broke in front of the church’s pavilion. “We started this [sunrise service] about 1950 or 1951,” church member Alfred McFee said. “We did it in different locations. It’s a great thing to do. We have good fellowship, and it’s a good way to worship.” “It makes me feel alive,” Virtue elder Herman

Waddell said about the Easter sunrise. “It’s just like we’re looking for the second coming. “It feels like this is the morning. Of course, we think [the second coming] is some time off, but it will be great it does [happen],” he said. “To me, it’s Christ coming out of the tomb,” church member Anne Shipley said. “To me, it’s very important just to celebrate the resurrection of Christ,” church member Dave Huffman said. “It’s just like a new birth, really, on this day anyway.” “This is just the culmination of our belief that Christ rose from the dead, and so shall we, if we are See SUNRISE on Page 5A

SERC seeks space in Town’s Annual Report ■

As the sun rises, interim pastor Mark Hester of Virtue Cumberland Presbyterian Church talks about Christ’s resurrection during the church’s sunrise service Easter Sunday, April 20, in the church’s pavilion.

Hamilton said. Hamilton shared some information he said he discovered last week after visiting “the Knox County Schools museum.” Remember those who made the ultimate sacrifice, “We had five boys from Farragut High School killed in World War II,” Hamilton said. One of those five was in the Class of 1943, he added. “Lloyd Thompson


Looking to include “a distinct section” within the town of Farragut’s Annual Report magazine on the five schools to which the Town annually pays $22,000, some Schools and Education Relations Committee members say they want “four more pages.” While pointing out there’s a lengthy paragraph reference to the four Farragut K-12 schools and Hardin Valley Academy in Town’s 2014 annual, Sue Stuhl, Parks and Leisure Services director who also serves as annual editor, made another point. “You have to realize, education is not us,” Stuhl said during SERC’s monthly meeting, which lacked a quorum and could therefore not act on any business, Tuesday afternoon, April 1, in Town Hall boardroom. “We do not control it, so we have to be very careful in what we say.” With Stuhl saying the 2014 annual report represents the third straight year this free publication has been shortened from

32 to 28 pages, SERC chair Mark Littleton asked what would be required to add back the four pages while advocating that much of that addition go toward those five schools. Stuhl said the decision came from “administration,” led by Town administrator David Smoak, “and the Board” of Mayor and Aldermen. “There’s a lot less in here now than used to be,” Stuhl added. “… There is very little left to cut. … We cut the Mayor and Aldermen back a whole page. We limited their bios to a very short thing.” Littleton added that “two pages” on BOMA remained. Nancy Wentz, the only other SERC member in attendance, said, “Nobody looks into the town of Farragut [annual] for the Board.” Pointing to the 2014 annual pages, “This is fairly vital information,” Stuhl said. She added that Littleton and SERC “need to be talking to [Smoak] about this.” Seeking information on See SERC on Page 5A

Farragut resident’s compassion is ‘planting seed’ ■


Planting a seed that grows into worldwide orphanages, a by-product of Allen Sizemore Jr.’s compassion toward South Korean orphans during the Korean Conflict. “What got me thinking: we can go out there and plant a seed. … I was the one who really started the idea of taking a kid in,” said

Sizemore, 85, a retired U.S. Army sergeant major living in Farragut who served in the 300th Armored Field Artillery Battalion, Company C, about taking in orphans and helping them get adopted. … I inspired people in the unit to do that.” Emphasizing the value of his Christian faith, Sizemore’s “planted seed” germinated throughout his duty in Korea — and for his

It would become a national “manhunt story” years later. Badly burned due to a gas drum explosion that “put him in the hospital for 19 months” according to

Businesses seek more signs

Cletus arrives


SignCo Inc. and Dura-Line representatives seeking additional signage on the east and west sides of the Parkside Plaza building off Parkside Drive will have to wait to see if the Town approves their request. Farragut Municipal Planning Commission listened and discussed but took no action on their request during its meeting Thursday, April 17. The companies are each seeking an additional sign on the sides of the building. Mark Shipley, Farragut Community Development director, said the request would involve amending the Town’s existing sign ordinance.

For the 13th consecutive year, Cletus, a 17-year-old Sicilian miniature donkey, begins the procession into Faith Lutheran Church, 225 Jamestowne Blvd, as part of the church’s annual Palm Sunday services (9 and 11:11 a.m.) April 13. This 11:11 a.m. service finds church members with palms surrounding Cletus and Mary Lou Redmond, manager at Little Ponderosa Zoo in Clinton, as they start into the main sanctuary. The ceremony reenacts Jesus Christ taking a borrowed donkey, as a display of humility, for his ride into Jerusalem just a few days before his crucifixion and resurrection.

As for making progress, “Farragut High School was the first school to have running water in it in the county,” Hamilton said. Concerning his role in this year’s preparations, “I’m having to do most all of it myself this

“Parkside Plaza I and II are the largest office buildings in the town of Farragut,” Deborah A. Petrolina, president of IMS Inc. and Parkside Plaza I facility manager, said. “When the business park was developed, the town of Farragut and the developer worked together to develop a new zoning ordinance for buildings of this size. Buildings over 100,000 square feet are usually occupied by multiple major companies. Most of these types of companies demand building signage.” Shipley said in April 2012, Dura-Line submitted its initial request to the Visual Resources Review Board to amend the Town’s ordinance to provide a third wall sign on the south side of Parkside Drive. The VRRB

year,” said Hamilton, who usually receives help from his younger brother, Horace Hamilton (Class of 1945). “My kid brother had a massive heart attack but he made it through it.” Horace has recovered well, George added, and is expected to attend the reunion. Both Hamilton brothers are U.S. Navy veterans of World War II. “I was in Beach Party Team 27 in the Pacific,” George, a Radioman Third Class, said. “Horace became a Navy cook.

And they took that whole class, and sent all of them to Leto Beach, N.Y., and put them through infantry training just like the Army. … Very few people in the Navy did what he did,” George added. “He never cooked any until he got in the Philippine Islands. They fully intended to send him on the beach in Japan for cannon fodder.” Earl Graham, also from the Class of 1943 who has been a regular Grand Reunion attendee, is a U.S. Air Force World War II veteran.

• After all these years it seems that Farragut people would have finally learned how to navigate a round-about. I guess it’s just too difficult for people here to comprehend how the things work because there are still people who stop within the circle to let yielders in and come close to causing accidents. Then there are still the people who will sit on Concord Road and not enter the circle because another car or several cars are approaching on Northshore [Drive]. That’s what causes traffic to be backed up to Turkey Creek Road at rush hour. • You would think that since this is an election year, the sheriff would have a patrolman out monitoring the speeders on South Campbell Station Road in one of the highest voting areas in Knox County. One night last week there were two load sports cars racing down the road and ran through the light at Brooklawn Street and the other at Concord Road. • I have to agree with the

callers who voiced disagreement to Town leaders changing the name of Campbell Station Park to Founders Park. What a silly notion and a useless gesture. Hopefully when this administration has run its course the next bunch will change it back. This area was Campbell Station long before it was Farragut and it’s wrong to do away with old things just because you can. • Editorial freedom is a wonderful concept, but it does come with its responsibilities.

signs. However, Commissioner Annette Brun said she thought the signs were tasteful and the request was reasonable. In other business, commissioners voted unanimously to recommend approval of a Capital Investment Plan list of projects, which Town assistant administrator Gary Palmer presented both to the commissioners during FMPC meeting April 17 and to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen during a workshop Thursday, April 10. These projects include road

improvements, land acquisitions, the Outdoor Classroom, Russell House, greenways and park improvements. In addition, the board approved unanimously: • final plat for Sheffield Subdivision • preliminary plat for the remainder of the Cottages at Pryse Farm • preliminary plat for Bridgemore Subdivision • Updated Farragut zoning map.


A political novice who’s a prominent radio personality, promising to “watch every dollar spent,” faces off against a saleswoman and multiple non-profit cause activist who is looking for a second stint on Knox County Commission. Republicans Donna Michele Carringer and Ed Brantley face off for County Commission’s Open Seat 11. Barring an unheard of successful write-in candidacy from a Democrat or Independent (Knox Primary Tuesday, May 6) the GOP primary winner will be elected Thursday, Aug. 7. (Early voting began Wednesday, April 16, and runs through Thursday, May 1). Brantley said, “I want to be a County Commissioner so that I can protect the people and protect their money. And I’m talking about taxes. The role of County Commission mainly is to dispense money and also to work on certain property issues. “To watch how money is spent, every last d o l l a r, ” Brantley, a H a r d i n Valley resiBrantley dent, added. “We’re doing something like a million dollars a day. … I’m going to follow every dollar, make sure it’s spent correctly and that it benefits the people.” Carringer said she has “always had the heart of serving people. I serve on various non-profit boards throughout all of the county. “I care about people, and I believe the people of Knox County deserve to have a commissioner that will listen to them and work with them … any day of the week and any time of the day. I have a love and passion for it,” she added. “Regardless of Republican or Democrat or whatever, I work with everybody. “I have been in sales off and on throughout my life, and I have worked with people of all ages.”

Having been appointed to replace former District 7 Commissioner Scott Moore in January 2008, “I understand what the needs are based on my experience,” Carringer said. “… I’ve been involved in Knox County Republican Party my entire life. “I was responsible for getting the Knox County Employees Insurance Committee put together, I voted on a lot of different laws to enforce underage drinking and gambling here in Knox County. … I support b e t t e r schools and safer neighborhoods,” she added. “Most of all, keeping Carringer the taxes low and government small.” Carringer was “barely defeated” in the 2010 District 7 GOP primary. Brantley pointed to “the past 40 years in radio broadcasting in Knoxville. I have interviewed on the air almost every politician who’s ever come through this area, from a [U.S.] senator to a president [of the United States] to the lowest of any elected office. “… And also I’ve talked to the public on talk shows over 40 years on the radio about the issues that face the county,” he added. “And also, I have run a broadcast company, Citadel Broadcasting, that had five radio stations, and I was the vice president and general manager. We had annual revenues of over $10 million a year and I had almost a hundred employees. So I know exactly what budgets are and how to get the best for my dollar. “I think my business experience and my years of experience of working with issues in the county, in this community, make me a better candidate.” Carringer pointed to “experience, leadership and the vision that I have” as her advantages. “I feel I’m definitely the most experienced in terms of being out there and involved and know what’s going on with the needs of our non-profits,” she said.

He added companies coming into Farragut want their own signage. “If we do this, how will it affect the strip malls?” Commissioner Louise Povlin asked about the new request.

BOMA ponders beer ordinance changes


Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen is expected to have a new beer ordinance before it that would be more lenient to non-food business owners wanting to have beer in their stores. The Board discussed amending the ordinance during its Thursday, April 10, workshop, which took place before the meeting. While the Board took no action, staff is expected to

have a proposed ordinance to Board members for first reading at its meeting Thursday, April 24. Echelon Bicycle owners Kelly and Tanya Hamm said they are optimistic about the Board’s reactions. “Obviously, we are really excited,” Tanya Hamm said. “I think it’s a very encouraging move ahead,” Kelly Hamm added. “I didn’t know what to expect. I think I have a pretty good understanding of their transcendental concerns with

allowing non-food businesses serving beer. They are wary of other types of businesses.” November 2013, businesses approached the Board about allowing non-food businesses to sell and serve beer. During a workshop in February, the board studied the concerns and possibilities for amendments. During the workshop April 10, the Board went over the ordinance again, discussing two points: Taverns and non-food businesses.

Sizemore, Baik recovered and would learn much from Beattie, who Baik affectionately called “Billy.” “Billy shared his food with him,” Sizemore said. “Billy was an orphan kid, too. The only people he had was his sister. Any he wrote his sister and got her to send the kid clothes. Beattie was teaching him what to do, what not to do. To work hard, don’t lie, don’t steal. Things of this nature.” Going on to become a highly successful businessman, Baik extended the fruitfulness began by Sizemore, setting aside millions and building orphanages all around the word. Spending years trying to find Billy while his story was featured in Readers Digest, Baik “contacted an ex-FBI man, and that FBI man found him,” Sizemore said. “… Billy was in Pennsylvania.” Sizemore, Billy and Baik all met at a 300th reunion in 1993. “I knew [Baik] in ’51, even before he got to know Billy,”

Sizemore said. After the Korean Conflict, “I worked in orphanages in Germany. … The unit I was in, I sponsored an orphanage,” Sizemore said. Extending his love for orphans and those down on their luck into Knox County, Sizemore served at the former Zion’s Children’s Home. “My wife [Dorothy] and I would go over there and get a couple of kids and have them over with our kids [three daughters and one son] on the weekend,” Sizemore said. With a home adjacent to property he owned, “I’ve let people live in that for as much as two years at a time,” Sizemore said about attempting to help out struggling couples. Also a “military science teacher at “Spring Hill College in Mobile, Ala.” In the 1960s, Sizemore told about one Loudon County student, in Philadelphia, he helped.

to do it.” Gary Palmer, Town assistant administrator, said he could “speculate” on the matter, telling SERC, “I would imagine the Board probably did not have a whole lot to do with anything other than the allocation of money.” Available free of charge to all town of Farragut residents, the annual report is compiled begin-

ning in July, sent for printing in November and comes out in late January according to Stuhl. In addition to the $22,000 annually given, Town’s outreach to area schools also includes hosting annual art exhibits in Town Hall’s rotunda. “The bulk of the children in the community, frankly, go to one of those five schools,” Littleton said.

“It’s hard to leave [the church] on Thursday because you want to bring the resurrection into it, but you have to wait until Sunday,” he said. Sunday morning, Mark Hester, interim pastor, read scripture and talked about Christ’s leaving the tomb. “I think [church members] want to experience what the Lord’s disciples experienced after they though He was gone,” Hester said. “I think they want to

be obedient disciples. “With the dawn, there is a sense of new life, new birth, new creation; so we celebrate Christ in the newness of Easter.” Choir director Patrick Minton, who has been with Virtue Church for about two years, said this was the first time he was at a church that had a service when the sun was actually rising. “It surprised me how beautiful it was this early in the morning,” he added.

Ads bats come alive, surprise Dawgs in 9 ■


Managing only one hit and no other baserunners through four innings against a future Tennessee Volunteers pitcher, Farragut looked dead in the water on “Phil Garner Day” at Bearden Wednesday, April 16. But Bulldogs starter Lane Thomas seemed to lose some sharpness during his final three innings of work (119 total pitches in seven innings according to BHS head Admirals 11 coach J o h n Bulldogs 7 Rice), as the Admirals rallied twice late and spoiled Bearden’s bid for a regular season sweep of the series. Scoring 10 of its 11 runs in four of the game’s final five innings, including four in the top of the ninth, Farragut won 11-7 in Phil Garner Ballpark.

“We’ve been on the wrong end of some of these,” FHS head coach Matt Buckner said. “It’s good to finally get one. Our guys never sunk their heads, kept fighting pretty hard. I’m proud of them. “We’re a growing team.” While the Admirals at 18-10 overall and 9-3 in District 4-AAA at week’s end, Bearden fell to 168, 7-2. Meanwhile, Farragut senior reliever Bo Baker cooled off Bulldog bats, for the most part, in his 3 2/3 innings of work. “I was just throwing every pitch with 100 percent intensity,” Baker, winning pitcher, said after allowing no runs, two walks (one intentional) and one hit with five strikeouts. Baker combined use of his fastball curveball and change-up. “That No. 11 was all over us. He pitched lights out there at the See FARRAGUT on Page 9A

In only his fourth-ever varsity appearance, Farragut sophomore pitcher Thomas Keyes picked up a critical District 4AAA win in relief. Working five innings of relief against William Blount, Keyes allowed no runs, only one walk and four Admirals 10 hits with Governors 2 f i v e strikeouts in a 10-2 Admirals victory Friday afternoon, April 18, at FHS’s John Heatherly Field. “My first outing [in relief during Farragut Invitational], that was nerve-wracking. After that, I’ve been on and it feels good. I’m not nervous anymore. It’s fun,” Keyes, whose team improved to 18-10 overall and 93 in district, said. Saying FHS head coach Matt Buckner advised him he may be pitching some Friday, “My fastball was good, my curveball was good,” Keyes said. “I threw strikes for the most part.” Buckner said about Keyes,

“He’s really pitched well. He’s a strike thrower, just throws a lot of strikes. He’s a young kid but

he’s got a bright future.” As for helping him adjust to varsity high school baseball,

Hawks baserunner Vinnie Gambuzza bounces up off second base after successfully stealing. Gambuzza went on to steal third and scored off a bad throw on the same play during play against Grace Christian Academy Thursday, April 17, at HVA.

Pitching power leads Hawks to consecutive diamond wins ■


On consecutive days, Hardin Valley Academy used excellent pitching to defeat two of West Knox County’s Christian academies visiting HVA. Matt Turner, Hawks junior starter, went the distance while allowing just two runs and four hits while striking out nine Hawks 4 in a 4-2 HVA vicRams 2 t o r y against Grace Christian Academy Thursday, April 17. One day later, sophomore Dylan Harris allowed just two hits and no runs with nine strikeouts in 5 2/3 innings — with junior Will Neely near perfect in relief — as HVA blanked Knoxville Christian Academy 3-0. These back-to-back wins improved the Hawks’ overall record to 21-3, while HVA entered the week on top in District 4-AAA at 10-1. Against Grace, “Matt Turner throwing a lot of first-pitch strikes” was key, HVA head coach Joe Michalski said. “Our defense was in it. We made a lot of good plays tonight. “Seth Hunt played well,

stole a bunch of bases,” Michalski added about his junior shortstop’s four steals. “He turned a double play that was fabulous. The batter stung a breaking ball a few steps to the six-hole. He stepped over, caught it on one foot, spun, threw it to Vinny [Gambuzza] at second and Vinny turned the double play. “That was a huge moment shift. They were threatening.”

Ian Pung, junior third baseman, added an RBI single for the Hawks. At the plate, Michalski praised both Hunt and Harris, left fielder when not pitching, for giving up an at-bat: taking the ball to the right side of the infield to push home a run. “That’s exactly what we want them to do, get those runs in

Halle McGuire was the latest Hardin Valley Academy underclassman to shine in softball. McGuire, sophomore left fielder, belted a pair of doubles while adding a sacrifice fly and an RBI walk in HVA’s 13-3 District 4-AAA home win against Heritage Thursday evening, April 17. Scoring five times in the fourth Lady Hawks 13 inning and five Lady Mountaineers 3 more in the sixth to end it, the Lady Hawks improved 13-7 overall, 65 in district. The Lady Mountaineers left HVA as they came: just three wins this season overall and one in district. McGuire said about keys to her success, “Trust is like the main thing and having confidence and always keeping your head up no matter what pitch goes by. … Trusting my hands at the plate. “I’ve gotten a lot better since

the beginning of the season.” “Halle is seeing the ball very well. She’s hitting the ball very well for us right now,” HVA head coach Whitney Cruze said. Sophomore pitching ace Kaleigh Wynne smacked a solo home run and singled. Wynne said she came out of the game after pitching three innings for a good reason. “My arm, it felt a little like Jell-O … I just needed a break,” Wynne, moving to shortstop, said. “But it didn’t hurt throwing overhand.” She allowed one run, two hits and no walks while striking out four. Sophomore Molly Smith relieved, giving up two earned runs, four hits and no walks with one strikeout in three innings of work. “She did a good job. I knew she could come in and help us out there,” Wynne said. HVA freshman Sarah Story added an RBI double and one

single plus two stellar defensive plays at third base. “I feel as I go on in the year I will do better just because I have more experience and I’m becoming wiser at the game,” Story said. “Sarah Story, a freshman, is hitting the ball and playing some good defense for us,” Cruze said. Hayley Cloud, sophomore second baseman, had two hits and one RBI for Hardin Valley. That included her walk-off 10run rule RBI single in the sixth. Chelsey Texeira connected for a two-RBI single for the Lady Hawks. Olivia LaSorsa added an RBI single. Overall, “I thought we hit the

iors. “Our leaders, Chase Chambers and Sam Schulze, they put our team together really well,” he said. “I admire their leadership. They’re good role models.” Using an infield error in the second inning to help score two runs and another in the fourth helping five runs come across, Farragut’s offense was led by senior second baseman Sam Schulze. Schulze connected for three hits, including a double, and one RBI. After an emotional 11-7 win in nine innings at Bearden less than 48 hours previously, “This could have been a trap game, to come out flat and not play that well,” Schulze said. “They threw a good pitcher on the mound but we were able to respond after the second inning or so when they went up 2-1.” Chase Fullington, FHS junior third baseman, had two hits including a double with one

RBI. “We had a rough start to the game, but we got our bats going later on and started hitting the ball real well,” Fullington said. Duncan Pence, Ads sophomore shortstop, belted a pair of doubles and had one RBI. The game ended with sophomore centerfielder Cole Morgan flagging down a deep fly ball while running into the left centerfield wall. He was not injured. “I had it all the way,” Morgan, who had a key two-RBI double in the fourth inning, said. Chase Chambers and Nico Mascia each added an RBI single for Farragut. John Painter and Gabe Waldrop also singled for the Admirals. Junior starter Carson Strickland “didn’t have his best stuff today but he’s been good for us all year,” Buckner said. In two innings, Strickland gave up two runs (one earned), one hit, one walk and three wild pitches with one strikeout. The Governors dropped to 1212 overall, 6-5 in the district.

“We made a couple of mistakes defensively that hurt and they took advantage of it,” William Blount head coach Justin Young said. “… We struggled to fight back, and they’re a good team. You can’t give a good team extra outs.”

and have those teams at-bats,” Michalski said. “It wasn’t about their batting average it was about getting an RBI for the team.” Hunt said, “I was seeing the ball pretty well tonight.” As for his base-stealing, “I was picking up [the pitcher’s] looks and had good jumps and just went with it,” Hunt added. About Turner, “He pitched a heck of a game,” Hunt said. “And we played solid defense.” Michalski praised senior Trey Branaum for his work on

ball very well tonight,” Cruze said. “We’ve been a little bit in an offensive slump, so it was nice to come out and score 13 runs. “We had a lot of girls with extra base hits tonight.” “Hardin Valley’s got a good club,” Heritage head coach Jeff Sherman said. “They came out and did what they needed to do in terms of hitting the ball. Their starting pitcher’s really good. “We felt like we had a chance if we could put the ball in play. That was kind of our strategy: bunt and move runners,” Sherman added. “Did that early. Got us a run early.” However, “We just don’t make plays in the field and it kills us every game,” Sherman said. “… Not making plays and not getting timely hits.”

Against KCS, senior centerfielder Anthony Gambuzza smacked a double and had one RBI. Tyler Thompson added a sacrifice fly. Harris, Pung and Seth Hunt each had one hit for the Hawks. Overall of late, “We’re playing very good team baseball,” Hunt said. “That’s what we’ve been all about this year.”

end,” Rice said of Baker. “Bo Baker did a good job coming in there and killing their rallies,” Buckner said. A second inning solo home run by sophomore shortstop Duncan Pence was the only Admiral to reach until the fifth. Bearden, meanwhile, struck for three first-inning runs against Admirals starter Eric Lessig, holding a 4-1 lead entering the fifth inning. Brock Vaughn added a firstinning RBI double for BHS. Bulldog Brady Duncan stoked a third-inning RBI single. After a Nico Mascia single, Cole Morgan’s fifth-inning RBI single cut the lead to 4-2. Kyle Porritt, Bearden’s junior designated hitter who ended with two doubles, a two-RBI single in the first inning and a sacrifice fly, doubled and scored on

David Beam’s RBI double to push BHS back ahead 5-2 after five. “Kyle played pretty decent. It’s good to see him swinging the bat well. He works hard,” Rice said. The Admirals then went long twice to tie the game in the sixth. Sam Schulze walked before Chambers went deep to centerfield for a two-run homer. Two batters later, Mascia sent a Thomas fastball over the left field fence to tie the game 5-5. The Bulldogs answered with two in the bottom of the sixth. Walks to Josh Smith and Thomas — who was walked intentionally five times by Buckner — set the stage for Elijah Thomas’ RBI single to centerfield. Porritt’s sacrifice fly made it 7-5. Farragut’s bottom of the lineup then came up big twice. Singles by Roy Mutta and John Painter preceded Gabe Waldrop’s successful sacrifice bunt. Schulze’s bloop single to right field scored Mutta.

With two outs, Chambers slid an RBI single to right field just past Helton at first base to tie the game. Farragut then exploded in the top of the ninth. Painter walked and Waldrop reached on a bunt single before Chase Fullington’s RBI double off the left centerfield wall made it 8-7 Admirals. Buckner said Painter and Waldrop “did a great job there. We did a good job putting bunts down all day, which I thought was something really key.” After Chambers was intentionally walked, Pence belted a twoRBI double. Mascia added an RBI single, his third hit of the game. “We came out, we got down early in the game. But we’re growing up,” Mascia said. Porritt said, “They hit in situations where we couldn’t. They got people in where we couldn’t.”

A hat trick, three goals, from Hawk junior forward Shawn Foster propelled HVA to a 4-0 shutout victory against the SoccerDawgs. Ivan Torres, senior forward, scored the other Hardin Valley goal while Cameron Schneider, a junior forward, added three assists. “I thought they played well,”

Mike McLean, HVA head coach, said after his team improved to 8-1-1 overall while remaining perfect in district action. Bearden fell to 6-6-1 overall, 32 in 4-AAA. “Defensively we’re doing well, which is key,” McLean added, singling out Logan Kington (junior defender) and Kyle Pacelli (senior midfielder). Eric Turner, SoccerDawgs head coach, said his team “didn’t play well at all. ... It was a lifeless effort” “Hardin Valley played very well. They were on their game, we weren’t,” Turner added. “We just didn’t bring the emotion and the intensity we need to bring to a game of that level. “We kind of just made a couple of mistakes and they made us pay for it.”

Admiral Veterinary Hospital a family practice


Admiral Veterinary Hospital has changed hands. Dr. Stephanie Hickey, husband Charlie Hickey and sister, Dr. Sarah Strunk, have teamed up to operate the veterinary clinic. Stephanie and Sarah are Bearden High School graduates while Charlie graduated from Farragut High School. They welcome the community to their open house from 10 a.m. to 2 p.m. Saturday, April 26, at the clinic along Watt Road. “It’s a community-wide fair,” Stephanie said. “Its free and open to anyone in the area.” There will be food, drinks, children’s activities, tours, free giveaways and door prizes, pet rescue groups and vendors. When Stephanie began working at Admiral Veterinary Hospital, she never dreamed she would own the clinic. Nevertheless, she has found herself as Admiral’s new owner. While she is officially the business’ sole owner, she and Charlie own the property together. “I like to call us a family practice here,” Stephanie said. Her involvement with the clinic started immediately after she

graduated from The University of Tennessee Veterinary School and took a job under Dr. Debra Calloway at the veterinary hospital. Calloway had opened the practice in 1988. “Several months ago, [Calloway] approached me and mentioned, for health reasons, she was going to have to retire,” Stephanie said. “All along, she had been grooming me to take over the practice. So, we started the process and made it official [recently]. “We’re excited,” Stephanie added. “We still have some of the same staff members we’ve had for years, and we hired some new staff on board to help with the improvements we made around here, and business is doing really well.” Sarah, also veterinarian, came on board with the clinic a year and a half ago, starting out parttime and is working full time now. “Even though she isn’t interested in ownership, it’s definitely our practice,” Stephanie said. Sarah said she enjoys being at the clinic and working with her sister. “I know I can come to her with any problems or issues,” Sarah said.

Dr. Sarah Strunk, left, and sister, Dr. Stephanie Hickey, are continuing the pet care with animals, such as Charlie, as new owners of Admiral Veterinary Hospital.

“We hope, in the Farragut community, that families will come to us, knowing we are a family business,” Stephanie said.

erations of clientele. I hope we get to continue that tradition,” she added.

After retiring from FedEx in 2008, Barry Brownlee, 61, devoted full-time to his music career: playing music, primarily covers and mainly the songs of Jimmy Buffett. Brownlee is the sole proprietor of Jolly Enterprise LLC, which he runs out of his home in Farragut. The business started initially in 2009, and Brownlee started his LLC in 2013, he said. He described the business as a “live music service provider offering musical choices for businesses, private parties and community events.” He performs under the stage name Bary Jolly. Brownlee averages 50 shows or more in a year in North Carolina and South Carolina in addition to Tennessee, he said. “Hopefully I will expand to tour the entire East Coast soon,” he added. While Brownlee said he plays a variety of music, he primarily does Buffett tribute shows. “Jimmy’s songs reflect life experiences that lots of people can relate to,” Brownlee said. “His fan base is surpassed by few musicians, and Parrotheads are the best fans in the world to perform for. Jimmy invented his own genre, tropical rock, and to me, Jimmy is a legend. “Knoxville and surrounding areas have so many beautiful lakes with some of the best marinas in the country,” he added. “There’s no better place to perform than on a beautiful lake in East Tennessee, and folks love

listening to songs about boats and beaches, of which my Jimmy Buffett Tribute Show is all about. I have made lots of great friends with people who live the lake life. There’s just no better way to spend a day.” Brownlee himself is a guitarist and singer. Frequently people playing guitar, harmonica, ukulele and percussion also play at shows. Reflecting on his life of music, Brownlee said he was born in Charleston, S.C. “As a child we moved to Florida, then North Carolina, Georgia and then settled in East Brownlee Tennessee,” he added. “As a southern boy, I learned to sing in church and spent much of my time listening to the music being played on the radio. “Started to play guitar at age 16 and fell in love with rock ‘n’ roll, I’ve played in many bands over the past 50 years with lots of incredibly talented musicians. I believe I’ve played about every genre.” The Bary Jolly Band performs as solo, duo or a full-band act. In addition going solo, Brownlee is joined by his son, Derek, for duo performances. Brownlee also performs in the full-band act. For more information, visit, call 865-966-1810 or visit the business’s Facebook page.

Chambers, Beuerlein named U.S. Army Reserves National Scholar Athletes


For combining excellence on the diamond, on the pitch and on the track with high academic achievement, Farragut High School seniors Chase Chambers and Katie Beuerlein have earned special recognition. Both were named U.S. Army Reserves National Scholar Athletes in late March.

“Your guidance counselor chooses an athlete that has demonstrated academic excellence,” Beuerlein, a star soccer midfielder for the Lady Admirals, said about choosing FHS nominees from which final selections are made. “I was definitely pleasantly surprised.” Her grade point average as of late March was 4.52. An All-American midfielder as a junior, Beuerlein, 18, was

named All-South her senior season in helping the Lady Admirals reach the Class AAA state semifinals. Chambers, 18, an Under Armour pre-season first-team All-American and All-state first baseman who helped lead the Admirals to the Class AAA state title game last spring, has signed with Tennessee Tech. He will major in mechanical engineering.

His GPA was a stellar 4.14. “I was pretty honored because I’ve worked so hard all four years trying to keep my grades up and trying to keep at the top level of my sport,” Chambers said. The Admirals’ slugger said he knows when to load up on difficult classes. “In the winter we do workouts, but we still have time to go home and do [home]work. That’s when you put your heavyweight classes in,” he said. “…

Setting up to where you’re not doing your heaviest work load during the season when you have games until 9, 10 o’clock.” Looking ahead, “I want to get a master’s at UT in bio-medical engineering,” Chambers said. “Hopefully work on prosthetics for disabled veterans.” Beuerlein said she’ll “be premed and major in psychology” See RECOGNITION on Page 4B

Autism fundraiser ‘Rock Around the Dock’ May 2 ■


Farragut resident Jessie Winston said she can’t emphasize enough the importance of fundraising efforts to fight autism. Winston has a 6-year-old son, Braden, with autism. Rock Around the Dock For Autism presented by Regal Entertainment Group, a benefit specifically to help autistic children and teenagers 18-and-under, runs from 6:30 to 10 p.m., Friday, May 2, at The Shrimp Dock in Bearden, 5210 Kingston Pike. Shrimp Dock owner Phil Dangel has a grandson, Henry, 4, with “a mild case” of autism. One hundred percent of proceeds benefit Autism Society East Tennessee, Dangel said. “We’d like to walk away with $15,000.” Brook Dickerson, ASET executive director, said “Rock Around the Dock is so important” because her funding is limited to “private donations, a couple of small local foundations and the fundraisers.” About what Shrimp Dock and Regal are doing, Winston said,

“Any business that steps up to try to raise awareness and to try and raise money for autism, I can’t be more appreciative.” The evening fare is a Cajun shrimp boil by Shrimp Dock with side dishes, wine, beer, soft drinks and desserts including Eva’s Famous Caramel Cakes. Among the 20 silent auction items are “expensive and rare” bottles of wine donated by Farragut Wine & Spirits according to Dangel. “We have a signed Butch Jones football; we have a signed Pat Summit basketball; we have two tickets to a Kenny Rogers [concert]; we have innumerable dinners.” Regional signing talent Tall Paul highlights the entertainment. Ticket cost is $50 each and can be purchased at The Shrimp Dock’s Farragut location (11124 Kingston Pike), the Bearden location, online at or at the door May 2. Dickerson said that according to a Center for Disease Control report made public in March, “One See ROCK on Page 10B

Regional redo sinks RowHAWKtics; FHS Flagship 3140 ‘learns’ in top 24


A “re-do” could have been the undoing of Hardin Valley Academy’s FIRST Robotics 3824 RowHAWKtics, attempting to repeat as a Smoky Mountain Regional champion. Hardin Valley’s alliance with private school neighbors Knoxville Catholic, whose Team 2393 finished tied for first in the preliminary round (10-1), and

Webb School of Knoxville Team 1466 seemed strong, but didn’t end well. They faced a stiff challenge from an alliance featuring teams from South Carolina and West Virginia during quarterfinal championship round play Saturday afternoon, March 29, in Knoxville Convention Center. Seemingly eking out a close victory in the third and deciding best-of-three game quarterfinal match, the HVA alliance found

out a redo was necessary due to technical errors resulting in the wrong score. The resulting re-do game saw the HVA-Irish-Webb alliance lose 193-112 to be eliminated. Senior Brian Davenport, RowHAWKtics team co-captain, said about the redo, “I definitely think it was fair. The goal that we scored didn’t count, and it ended up going [the other alliance’s] own way.” With HVA finishing 12th among

49 teams from seven states in the preliminary round, Davenport said his RowHAWKtics alliance “just didn’t have the luck this time. I think we had the right gameplan, we just weren’t able to execute it quite as well as we wanted to.” Meanwhile, Saturday proved to be groundbreaking, and a learning experience, for Farragut High School’s Flagship 3140 team. “I’m really proud of my team, my team did amazing. For the

first time we were picked to go into the [24-team] finals,” junior Josh Smith, Farragut co-captain, said. His team aligned with Halls High School and Craigmont High of Memphis. As one of eight 3-team alliances in the final round, Smith said he and his 3140 teammates realized, “It’s a whole new world.

Fighting Irish may fight in Division II-AA in ’17 ■


By 2017, Knoxville Catholic High School might be forced to compete in the same region with Division II-AA (large private) athletic powerhouses such as Chattanooga Baylor, McCallie School, Father Ryan, Ensworth and Montgomery Bell Academy. Skyrocketing costs due to increased travel expenses and added financial aid burdens loom for small private schools, which currently compete in TSSAA Division I for district, region and state honors with public schools, if they are forced into Division II to compete for district, region and state championship honors among only private schools? One West Knox County private school athletic director said he’d rather leave TSSAA, helping to form a new private school-governing body, than to accept the proposed changes. These are concerns from West Knox County private school administrators and coaches if TSSAA follows through on proposed legislation, most recently brought to the table by Trousdale County and Lewis County high schools, to force Division I private schools — currently competing in with private schools competing in the exclusively private Division II. KCHS, Christian Academy of Knoxville, Grace Christian Academy and Concord Christian School all forgo giving their student-athletes any financial assistance and except a 1.8 multiplier (multiplying their enrollment times 1.8 to place them in the correct public level) to play Division I. “It’s come up several times,” Dickie Sompayrac, KCHS principal, said, citing that prior to the 2009-10 school year, similar TSSAA legislation “was proposed. … The Legislative Council voted on this

issue … and it failed by a 5-to-4 vote.” However, “This split is coming. I think it’ll happen at the end of this classification period Sompayrac predicted about changes that would begin with the 2017-18 school year. If TSSAA Legislative Council votes to make a change, “It’s going to be tough,” Sompayrac said about all Irish sports having to travel to Chattanooga regularly for district and/or region games. “… More importantly, it’s just not good for the kids.” Moreover, Sompayrac said KCHS enrollment of more than 600 would force Irish sports to compete in Division II-AA with the biggest and richest state private schools, featuring many of the state’s most powerful sports programs. Considering the Baylors and McCallies reportedly have ample resources from which to distribute financial aid and scholarships to student-athletes, “For us it would be a huge burden because we don’t have the resources to give significant amounts of financial aid,” Sompayrac said. “… I’ve heard that some of those school are giving over $1 million in aid just to athletes.” Mike Doig, first-year athletic director at Grace Christian (about 250 high school students), said if the TSSAA votes to make the change “the option there would be to really, strongly look at creating a whole other independent athletic association, and it would not be tied into the TSSAA.” Similar to Texas, North Carolina and Georgia high schools with seperate governing bodies for private and public, “I would be in strong favor of that” if Grace is forced into Division II,” Doig said. As for travel if the changes are made, “We would be traveling to Nashville in a lot of our sports, on a consistent basis, just to get three-

A TSSAA Legislative Council vote could move private schools such as Knoxville Catholic, which currently compete in Division I with public schools, into the exclusively private Division II. If this happens, sports involving rivals Webb School and Catholic, such as this 2013 football game featuring Todd Kelly Jr. of Webb trying to be tackled by Irish defender Elijah Brown, will take on region playoff significance beginning with the 2017-18 school year.

quarters of our [mandatory] games in,” Doig added. “… Does that mean you increase tuition? If you increase tuition does that really solve the needs of our whole school?” Doig said he’s “gone through this in Florida [public and private together], I’ve gone through this in Kentucky [also together]”… and Virginia [also together]” as a high school coach, in addition to being a college assistant coach and college athletic director. Unlike TSSAA’s governing appro-ach, in Kentucky “the membership runs the association” with each school getting a vote on issues, Doig said. Doig, however, said he doesn’t think all privates being moved to Division II is inevitable. “I believe there are options to be worked through,” he added. Rob Murphy, Concord Christian

athletic director, said he’s “pretty sharply opposed to it. I think it would be bad for our sport, bad for our kids — not just CCS, but a lot of schools. … You’ll increase trav-

Eyes are opened by HVA’s annual ‘My Amazing Life’ ■


Clifford Amann said he learned a valuable lesson during Hardin Valley Academy’s annual “My Amazing Life” for the school’s junior class Thursday, April 3. “That being a musician will get me in the negative percentages” income-wise. Especially with three kids. … And a four-bedroom home,” said Amann, among hundreds of HVA juniors in all four academies taking part in this simulated experience into the adult world of tough decisions in financial, career and family matters. As a result, “If I hadn’t done this I would have gone into the real world blind,” Amann added. “… It’s not surprising until you add all the numbers up together.” At retirement, “I had about $600,000,” Amann said. “That was great.” Amann was among a handful of Liberal Arts Academy students who shared lessons learned during My Amazing Life, held all school day in the HVA gym. Olivia Bates, designating her career as a teacher, said she “liked it a lot. It was good for finding out what I need to know for the future and just knowing all the expenses that you have to take care of on a monthly basis.” As for what surprised her, “The

Division I,” Murphy added. “I think that for every kid we’re able to pull that wouldn’t be zoned for us [if CCS were a public school], there’s at least one kid that wants to come to school either at CCS or somewhere else that can’t afford to. “… I believe the playing field, especially with the multiplier in

money you can gain from retirement,” Bates said. Having “two children” to raise as determined by a random draw, Bates also was surprised with “a couple of other things like child care. Just how much it costs to take care of children.” Having one child to care for, Becky Hunn said about surprises, “Definitely child care. I didn’t know it was that expensive to send your child somewhere after school. “I learned a lot about how much insurance costs, like medical insurance and dental insurance,” she added. “And things that you have to pay for every day in your life but you don’t really think about as much as a teenager or even as a kid because you don’t see where the money’s going.” As for a profession, “I had to go back to school to get a better job,” Hunn said about needing to advance as a teacher. Saying she had “about $1,000 left over” at retirement, Hunn said she chose the “smallest house, a two bedroom.” Tabitha Skaar said, “It was a lot of fun, a great experience,” adding she learned a lot “about budgeting my money.” Skaar, choosing to be a nurse, said she also was surprised “about how much insurance will cost.”

place, is level and fair.” Rusty Bradley, CAK football head coach, said he “didn’t truly understand” the reasoning behind the proposed changes. “I feel we’re already being punished by playing in Division I by having our enrollment multiplied by 1.8,” Bradley, whose teams won Division I Class 3A state titles in 2011 and 2012, added.

SJNCS preschoolers learn about life ■


Chicks, caterpillars and worms are helping Saint John Neumann Catholic School preschoolers learn about life, Beth Mattingly, SJNCS preschool director, said. As the first year draws to a close this spring, the youngsters are learning how chicks hatch from eggs, how worms live and how caterpillars turn into butterflies. These lessons are all part of a curriculum focusing on life. “We are working with chickens, plant development, butterflies and a worm farm,” she said. “Right now we are making caterpillars out of pantyhose and grass seed. Yesterday, we made grass heads with pantyhose and sawdust.” Mattingly said the projects help each individual child develop a variety of skills, such as fine motor, cognitive thinking and social skills, among others. “Part of what separates us from everybody else is we are truly

focused in on developmental needs of the individual child,” Mattingly said about SJNCS’s preschool. “We work very much on an individual basis,” she said. “Our developmental motto is ‘Exposure, experience, explore and discover.’” Also, the program is different because of the religious aspect, Mattingly said. The preschool program started August 2013, Janet Harrigan, SJNCS director of admissions and development, said. Harrigan said the school did a feasibility study and an open house to determine if there was enough interest in a preschool program, not only for the parish but also for the community since the school has several nonCatholic families whose children attend the school. She said the level of interest in a preschool was overwhelming. She added the school’s new See SJNCS on Page 10B

Farragut Intermediate School fourth-graders present a “Twas the Night Before Disney” Founders Day program Thursday, April 3, in Farragut Middle School gymnasium to acknowledge the contributions of the school’s Parent-Teacher Association.


‘Twas the Night at Disney for Farragut Intermediate School’s fourth-graders as they presented the school’s annual Founders Day program. The event, which took place Thursday, April 3, in Farragut Middle School, recognized the founding of the school’s ParentTeacher Association. “We do this to acknowledge

the PTA for the wonderful job they do,” Leann Mulligan, FIS music teacher, said. Mulligan helped put on the program with fellow music teacher, Kristen Clark. “Every year, we have a different grade [put on the program], and this year it was the fourth grade, Mulligan said. “We are very proud of them,” Clark said. Also, she acknowledged the school’s staff and the PTA.

“The boys and girls did an outstanding job under the direction of our two music teachers,” FIS principal Kay Wellons said. “They especially enjoyed the Disney connection of the program this year.” The PTA’s function is to support the learning of FIS students and provide a level of involvement to enhance its students and the community, See FIS on Page 9B

SJNCC Women’s Club to host annual Luncheon and Fashion Show ■ TAMMY CHEEK

St. John Neumann Catholic Church Women’s Club is heralding in spring with its annual Luncheon and Fashion Show. The event, which is open to the public, is slated from 11:30 a.m. to 2 p.m., Saturday, April 26, in the gymnasium of SJNS, 645 St. John Court, in Farragut. The show, a signature event for the club, will feature fashions from The Paris Apartment Boutique and Tea Room in Bearden. Lunch is on-site and shopping will be available before and after the luncheon and show, Jane Lubert, Saint John Neumann Catholic Church Women’s Club president, said. Lunch will be served at 11:30 a.m. and go directly into the fashion show, she said. The boutique offers European lifestyle ladies’ apparel and accessories, home décor and oneof-a-kind gifts. Clothing will be available for purchase at the April 26 event. “It’s a great event for ladies of our parish, and it is also an attraction to bring friends and neighbors,” Lubert said. “It’s not just for ladies of our parish.” This is the third year for the

event, and the club’s only fundraiser, the club president said. “We had 120 attend last year, and we raised about $2,000.” She said the event came about after her club members saw other parishes hold similar events. “We saw fashion shows at other parishes, and we thought it was a good way to bring the ladies together for fun and fellowship, in addition to raising money for a good cause,” she said. Cost for the event is $15. Part of the proceeds go for the club’s operating expenses, gratuity for speakers who come throughout the year and another part of the proceeds go to charitable contributions the women’s club makes during the year, Lubert said. She added one of those charities includes Horizon, housing for independent living for lowincome adults with chronic mental illness. The club, which supports the women in SJN parish, has three committees that focus on service, social events and spiritual activities. Some of its other activities included a Ladies of Charity Wild West Roundup, a Christmas cookie exchange and a wine event social. For more information, call the church, 865-966-4540.

Waggoner has more than 44 years of law enforcement experience: not only working on the ground, but supervising large multi-state investigations and managing multi-million dollar budgets. He has a Masters of Public Administration and has received police certification in three states. He served almost 13 years at the KCSO, the last six of which he was Chief of Detectives. While there, he saw first-hand where improvements need to be made, where money is being needlessly wasted, and where resources need to be re-allocated to keep the focus on Knox County’s safety.

weren’t really prepared for that. “We learned a lot,” Smith added. “We learned how hard we’re going to get hit and we’re going to have to prepare for that in the future. Next year when we come back, we’ll have to take into account, ‘Wow, these teams are really going to try and nail us in these final matches.’ “But for the first time my team knows what success tastes like, and man it tastes good. We’re going to come back for it.” Smith said alliance teamwork “couldn’t have gone much better. It’s just that our robots, as a team, weren’t as well built. And we didn’t have as much experience being in a final match as the other teams that we were going up against.” Appearing to have finished sixth in the preliminary round, “They had to recall one of our matches … like do it again, and

then we dropped down to 16th after we lost,” Smith said. Losing 2-0 in its quarterfinal match versus eventual Smoky Mountain champs Oak Ridge (aligned with teams from Morgantown, W.Va. and Murray, Ky), “We came so close [in the first match], we just had to make one more goal,” Smith said. “… It just wouldn’t go in, so we lost. We only lost by about six points. “In the second match they figured out our strategy, we didn’t change it as much as we should have, and they won handily,” Smith added. About the HVA-Catholic-Webb alliance, Senior Ben Nadolsky, team captain of KCHS Team 2393, said, “Everyone on our team did great. We played our hardest. It just didn’t fall in our favor.” About working with Webb and HVA, “Robotics stresses professionalism. Rivalries don’t matter. We picked them for a reason, to defend, and they did their job,” Nadolsky said.

Political promises and cronyism have long plagued the Sheriff ’s Office, and Waggoner pledges to put an end to it. He’ll hire the best and the brightest based on their experience and qualifications rather than their political connections. He’ll manage the budget with integrity, putting an end to unnecessary purchases and positions. Waggoner will make sure every taxpayer dollar goes to making Knox County safer.

While growing up in the Karns community, Waggoner was strongly influenced by his grandfather, who was Knox County Sheriff for three terms, and his father, who was a detective with the City of Knoxville. They instilled in him a commitment to give back to his country and his community, which Waggoner did both: serving in the Army and serving his community with a lifetime career in law enforcement.

In recent years, an increasing number of KCSO officers have been caught overstepping their authority. Whether it’s making a teenager spin on a bat or unlawfully confiscating football tickets to resell, it’s unacceptable and it’s an abuse of power. Just like a successful football coach keeps his players in line, a Sheriff sets the example for discipline and accountability. Waggoner has a proven track record of being a respected mentor and providing mature, responsible leadership.

Just a few months ago, the current Sheriff made national news when he made a controversial statement that he would stack immigrants in the Knox County jail like “cordwood.” Waggoner will be a full-time Sheriff who will not embarrass the community with his words or actions. He’ll be tough, but fair, and will enforce the law equally to all.

Know when to give it up Many have a hard time letting go and it really doesn’t have to be that way. Now I’m not talking about the letting go of a person whom you love and he no longer loves you. That’s a boo hoo, hard kind of letting go and it takes time. I’m talking about de-cluttering. As far as de-cluttering goes, I used to have a hard time letting go, but I don’t anymore, because of a test question I ask every Pam time I get Young stuck holdMake it ing onto an Fun! item that needs to go. I’ll tell you what that test question is in a minute. First I want to tell you a little story. Because of a contest called Project CHAOS (Can’t Have Anyone Over Syndrome) I’ve been in over 100 homes that were crammed with too much stuff. My sister and I would pick a winner in a city and armed with television cameras, newspaper journalists and photographers; we’d go into the home of the winning family and dejunk a room. The “befores” and “afters” were always media worthy.

I remember one specific winner vividly. She was a physician (even doctors can have too much stuff) and she wanted us to help her with her personal, walk-in closet. It was jampacked with fashions that spanned two decades and four sizes. She dressed well. Her clothes were purchased at highend dress shops and department stores and most were designer. One of her biggest roadblocks was remembering what she paid originally for each garment and in the beginning it was hard to get her to let go, especially with garments that had little wear. It seems like when we pay a good price for something and then we don’t wear it, we’ll keep it just in case by some miracle we’ll change our mind. NOT! The doctor had gained about 50 pounds in twenty years and we explained that even if she lost the weight, she wouldn’t want to wear stuff that was out of style and besides if she lost the weight she certainly deserved to get a brand new wardrobe. With that realization, the closet emptied like we’d pulled the plug on a bathtub full of water. But what about old shoes, purses, scarves and jewelry? She still wore the same size shoe and purses, jewelry and scarves don’t have a size. This is when I thought up “the question.” I had her hold each item,

FIS From page 7B

one at a time, and ask this question: “If I were at a second-hand store like Goodwill or the Salvation Army, would I buy this?” The question made her focus like we do when we shop, and when she really scrutinized a pair of shoes for example, suddenly the worn heal or frayed strap jumped out at her. A purse, well passed its expiration date moaned, “I’m tired, let me go.” It was a real eye-opener to keep that question in her mind. So with that story, the next time you get stuck holding onto an item that needs to go, ask it, “Would I buy you at Goodwill?” If the answer is “no,” get rid of it. When you go about your daily routine, you might want to keep those Goodwill eyes open for any items that need replacing. Now, I’d like you to go to your kitchen and look at your dish clothes and dishtowels and ask, THE QUESTION, as you hold each one. It just might be time to let go and get new!

Wellons said. “Our PTA is so fabulous, from supporting students and teachers to helping students with flash cards or reading to providing refreshments and teaching our Science LAB,” Wellons said. Rebecca Bower, FIS PTA president, said the organization’s membership is a little more than 1,100 this year. The bylaws trace back the PTA to 1916, when 13 women formed a “mother’s club” to help the community’s needy. The group joined the national PTA organization in 1925. After the elementary school divided into the primary and middle schools in 1973, the primary school formed its own PTA, and FMS formed its own PTA in 1976. The intermediate and middle school functioned as one school until it separated

in 1992. Bower said she thought the Founders Day program was great. “They had a lot of popular songs, and the kids dressed up and danced,” she said. Each year, the school chooses a different theme. This year’s theme was a medley tribute to Walt Disney, Mulligan said. The program incorporated music from such films as “Pocahantas,” “The Little Mermaid,” “Alladin,” “Lion King,” a“We have two classes come down to be featured,” Mulligan said. “They do different things. Some had different choreography. Some used color guard flags and some used instruments. “We typically try to tie it in with what the students are learning in their regular classes to reinforce what they are learning,” she said.
