West Knox observes Memorial Day ■

COURTNEY SUCH csuch@farragutpress.com

Memorial Day holds a special place in the hearts of residents in the West Knox County area. U.S. Army Spc. Christopher Fox was looking for water for a young boy in Baghdad when a bullet took his life, just one week before his 22nd birthday on Sept. 29, 2008. While on his second tour in Iraq, Fox reached to the top of a vehicle for a bottle of water and was shot by sniper fire in the armpit where his vest did not cover him. “It’s what I expected of Chris. He loves kids. He used to worked at summer camp,” said Amy Frost, Fox’s mother and former FHS special education teacher. “You can’t describe this kind of personality in a few sentences. But when they told me he was killed by a single bullet, I said no way this bigger than life kid was killed by one single bullet,” Frost added. Retired Lt. Cmdr. Bob Cosby, NJROTC senior naval science instructor at FHS and former colleague of Frost, participated in his second Mountain Man Memorial March in honor of Fox April 19. Cosby finished the

march in first place wearing full uniform and carrying a 35-pound pack in a time of 5:20:20. Five of his students also marched a half marathon together in memory of the late Cpl. Jason Davis, U.S. Marine Corps in 2:35:16, a winning time for their class division. “It’s really a fabulous tribute to the Gold Star Families and those service men and women that lost their lives,” Cosby said. “The idea is that you never forget, and that’s one of the ways you do it, that you never forget.” Frost could not be more thankful for her son being honored in this way. “It’s an amazing thing what they do, and they do it so our kids’ names aren’t forgotten,” Frost said on behalf of all the Gold Start Families, an organization of people who have lost family members in war. “After a couple years, people stop asking, so it’s always nice to know your kid’s name is still being spoken aloud.” This was the sixth annual Mountain Man Memorial March put on by American Legion Post No. 2 of Knoxville. Gold Star Families from all over the country come to East Tennessee and have a group of people run in honor of their lost heroes. Another fallen soldier repre-

Advocating a 3 percent Hotel/Motel tax to enhance town of Farragut attractions to “get more people to come to our Town,” a Town government leader said tax revenue would come back to boost business, drawing visitors into Farragut’s soon-to-be eight motels. The counter argument, includ-

ing a Farragut hotel owner and top brass with two hospitality associations, is the tax will take away Farragut hotels’ edge as a cheaper alternative, versus City of Knoxville’s current 3 percent Hotel/Motel tax, therefore pushing away lodging visitors otherwise ready to spend money in Town. Advocates for both sides met See TAX on Page 3A

FHS, HVA, BHS send graduates into the world ■

COURTNEY SUCH csuch@farragutpress.com

The freshest young adults of West Knox County zipped up their metallic blue, royal blue, and maroon gowns and secured their caps for their high school graduation ceremonies. Two by two, the class of 2013 graduates from Farragut, Hardin Valley and Bearden took their walk down the aisle to their seats for the biggest day of their lives thus far on the floor in The University of Tennessee’s Thompson-Boling Arena last weekend.

“We’ve loved you, and more importantly, we’ve believed in you,” said FHS principal Michael Reynolds Saturday night, May 18. The academic statistics of the Farragut students blew the audience away into silent awe. The class of 414 is made up of 20 Advanced Placement scholars, 42 scholars with distinction, three presidential scholars, one presidential scholar finalist, one Siemen’s Award winner, one perfect score on the ACT and one perfect SAT score. In addition, 70 percent graduated with at least a 3.0 grade point average, 950 completed AP

courses and 200 completed duel enrollment classes at a local college. This class also will represent Farragut at 98 different colleges in 30 states, District of Columbia and Ireland. FHS exceeded more than ever before in two additional areas. Ninety percent of the class earned at least one scholarship, totaling more than $30 million as a whole. Lawrence Shengzhe Wang is the valedictorian and Sharon Bao the salutatorian. In addition, Austin Sneed was surprised See GRADUATES on Page 4A

Memorial From page 1A

I always said he’d be good to a wife, because he was always good to me,” Iris Walden said. While attending the dedication of the Vietnam Wall in Washington, D.C., Walden came across a Gold Star Mothers hospitality room. “I went in, got some info, came back home and got busy,” Walden said. She founded the East Tennessee Gold Star Mothers chapter in 1983. Walden also worked her way up through leadership on the national level, serving as secretary twice, treasurer, first vice president, second vice president, and ultimately president for the 2000-2001 term, when she brought the national convention right to the heart of downtown Knoxville. “I would advise any mother that’s lost a son or daughter to get involved. We are able to help each other a lot and honor each other’s kids,” Walden said. The list of American heroes with Farragut roots continues with the late 1st Lt. Alexander “Sandy” Bonnyman Jr., a Medal of Honor and Purple Heart recipient from East Tennessee during World War II . His nephew, Dr. Brian Bonnyman, formally worked at a Farragut practice. Although he never knew his uncle, Dr. Bonnyman has heard many stories about him.

“I think he was a pretty colorful character. He was charismatic, very handsome and athletic,” Bonnyman said. Lt. Bonnyman flunked out of Princeton University and enlisted into the U.S. Army Air Corps. He did not actually go to fight until he was in his 30s, a coal miner, and married with three children. Despite all of this, he volunteered as a Marine private. He climbed his way up the ladder of leadership and became a lieutenant. He is most known for showing bravery by leading a group of men during the Battle of Tarawa and eventually losing his life by standing at the front of the battle line, resulting in the United States securing this island. “It’s the third day [of battle] and this guy with a different unit nobody knew shows up, and he said, ‘I think I’ve got a plan for striking this fort,’” Bonnyman added. “What I think is most striking is these people who didn’t even know him followed him,” Bonnyman said. The Lt. Alexander Bonnyman Marine Corps League Detachment No. 924 of Knoxville holds a Memorial Day service at the Sgt. Mitchell W. Stout Medal of Honor Memorial at Virtue Cemetery each year. A keynote speaker will deliver a message prior to the Presentation of the Colors at 11 a.m., Monday, May 27.

policereports • May 16: Knox County Sheriff’s Office was advised by a representative of Westside Unitarian Universalist Church an unknown suspect attempted to break into a shed located on the grounds. Complainant advised the shed houses the church’s lawn equipment. Pry marks were visible on the shed’s wooden doors. • May 15: An Old Colony Parkway resident reported to police an unknown suspect caused damage to both of his vehicles, which were parked in the driveway at the residence. Complainant stated the damage appeared to be key marks on the windshield and hood of both vehicles. • May 14: KCSO was dispatched to a Peterson Road address after receiving a call from the resident reporting having heard someone outside near his vehicle. Upon checking the vehicle, the victim found the passenger door was open and the vehicle had been ransacked. • May 14: KCSO was again dispatched to the site of a previous Peterson Road call for an attempted burglary to a house/attached garage. Victim reported he had heard someone making noise at the attached

garage. Upon looking out the window, the victim observed an unknown white male suspect with short brown hair wearing a white T-shirt trying to open the victim’s garage door. Victim stated he ran outside to confront the suspect who fled on foot north towards Kingston Pike. • May 13: Police were called to Ingles grocery in Farragut in response to a vandalism complaint. Police were told by an Ingles employee an unknown suspect dressed in a “hoodie” was seen writing on the window of the store and fleeing at about 2:30 a.m. Police arrived on the scene at about 6 a.m. and reported discovering multiple signs and buildings with vandal damage. • May 13: Police were advised by a representative of Weigel’s Farm Stores off Old Stage Road an unknown suspect had spray painted

the gas pumps in front of the store. • May 10: Police arrested a 35-yearold woman and a 26-year-old woman in connection with a shoplifting complainant lodged by a representative of Kohl’s department store in Farragut. The responding officer reported the older woman attempted to run and was advised a Taser would be used to stop her if she continued to attempt escape. The woman continued to run and was fired upon and struck by the officer’s Taser. The woman fell but continued to attempt to escape and was struck with the Taser two more times until she complied with the arresting officer. The woman had an outstanding violation of parole warrant and had more than $2,000 of jewelry concealed on her person. The second woman had a hat valued at about $20 on her person.

to outline there positions during a forum, sponsored by Farragut Business Alliance, in Town Hall boardroom Thursday morning, May 16. Town leaders and Board of Mayor and Aldermen wanted to “start targeting that tourism effort, and start branding ourselves to the outside world,” said David Smoak, town administrator and tax advocate. “The county has a five percent Hotel/Motel Tax. The City of Knoxville adds three percent. “Many cities” surrounding Knox County also have implemented a Hotel/Motel Tax, Smoak added. One use of Hotel/Motel Tax revenues would be to “enhance those facilities” already in place “in order to get more people to come to our Town,” Smoak said. “That takes quite a few capital dollars.” “We’re talking about capital projects that are worth $8.5 million, or more dollars, over the next five, six, seven years,” he added. Smoak spoke about a “$6 million project” planned for McFee Park featuring installation of “two artificial turf fields” similar to one planned to be completed in Mayor Bob Leonard Park this fall. Such fields allow for use year-round versus having to “shut down our fields” in July and August to let the fields grow in.” That’s also the case “in the wintertime.” “Just a few weeks ago I think there was 155 soccer teams that played here in our Town, and

they had over 1,500 hotel rooms that they utilized,” Smoak added. In addition, “We’re going to be hiring a consultant,” he said. Concerning the historic yet vacant Russell House, which sits a few hundred yards off Kingston Pike behind Taco Bell, “Certainly, we would anticipate, if we could, turning that into a house museum and a visitors center,” Smoak said. “I know that historic tourism visitors tend to spend more money and stay longer.” Greg Adkins, president/CEO of Tennessee Hospitality Association, spoke against the tax. Trucking companies are among those, including “larger groups of 10 to 20,” that would “target specific communities based on how much their hotel tax is,” Adkins said. “Generally, what we see nationwide is for every two percent increase in hotel taxes, according to the American Economics Group ... there was a 2.4 percent reduction” in business, Adkins added. “What I would request, if this tax does go forward, that specific tourism language goes into the ordinance. … At least saying 100 percent of it has to be used for tourism development.” Though passing the Hotel/Motel Tax ordinance on first reading April 25 with only one no vote, Alderman Bob Markli, BOMA has tabled a second reading originally scheduled during its meeting tonight, Thursday, May 23. Though its most of its operating budget paid for by tax dollars through town of Farragut, FBA

“opposes the proposed 3 percent hotel-motel tax until such a time when a definitive plan for use of the funds is established and able to be evaluated,” according to a press release from David Purvis, president of FBA board of directors, which met in executive session following the forum. “The motion carried unanimously, with both Mayor Ralph McGill and Tom O’Neil (Hampton Inn & Suites at Turkey Creek) abstaining.” Amit Patel, owner of Comfort Suites and Country Inn & Suites

in Farragut, said, “To remain competitive, we would actually have to reduce our rate [to match] those hotels that do not have a city tax. “We feel it’s unfair to target a single industry until all options have been explored,” Patel added. Jill Thompson, executive director of Greater Knoxville Hospitality Association, listed area sales and hotel tax rates to include Blount County (15.30 percent), Oak Ridge (14.75) and Lenoir City (14).

At 14.25 percent in Farragut, “We’re definitely at an advantage now,” Jill Thompson said. Dale Thompson of GKHA said, “At 14.25 [percent] you’re higher than 75 percent of the country.”

671-TALK Neseman

presstalk@farragutpress.com • Creating a new hotel/motel tax is a terrible idea on several levels. First, taxes should only be implemented for a specific need — and then only after no other revenue source is found. In this case, it seems to me that the Town administrator has discovered that we are allowed to create such a tax, therefore we should. Last week’s farragutpress editorial forcefully made this point about Farragut’s backward process of taxing first and then finding a need for its use. I have no doubt that the politicians now in power could manage to spend the money that they collect in the guise of having new parks to attract the hordes of tourists that are flooding to “historic” Farragut and the result would be to perhaps spend $25 of tax revenue to create $1 of tourism. Second, and more troubling, is the sense I get from reading about this effort is that we can get something good for ourselves such as more parks and have someone else (hotel patrons from out of town) pay for it. This is the attitude that has changed our society from being self-reliant to one where there are more takers of government services than payers. Shame on the Farragut politicians for promoting the idea that taxes are OK as long

as someone else pays them. I can only hope that they would have thought this idea through more thoroughly if they were going to tax Farragut residents, because we all know how successful that effort would have been. • I just wanted to make the comment about the article in last week’s [May 16] farragutpress about Eddy Ford’s 68-plus acres up for sale again. There is a comment in here about the previous administration approving certain codes and regulations to make it a more desirable property to sell. I was interested to see that the person who wrote the article did not mention that the previous administration was Eddy Ford when he was the mayor. I was just kind of wondering why that was. Editor’s Note: During the votes and discussion of the ordinances created to develop a town center on the Ford property, then Mayor Eddy Ford recused himself from all discussion and voting. • I just wanted to thank the workers in Farragut for the beautiful banners that they have put up on our streets. I am really enjoying them and just wanted to thank them for all their hard work.

Graduates

This class totaled with more than $17 million in scholarships, and the majority of them stood to be recognized for an offering of at least one to their attending schools. “Do not let today be the peak of your accomplishments … onwards is where each one of us waits,” Graves said in her commencement address despite the long list of achievements the class takes with them. Many of the students accredit these accomplishments straight to HVA. “I could do whatever I wanted, because the school let me do so. Because of this school, we have flourished. We don’t leave our experiences here,” said Valentine, Hawk Award recipient, the school’s highest award. Isaiah Bell is the valedictorian, while Trevor Dixon and Samuel Shadwell shared the

with recognition for his four-year full scholarship, (including room and board) to the Air Force Academy. “I told you they were something out of the gate,” Reynolds said, making a classy comparison to the racehorses in the Kentucky Derby. Hardin Valley Academy’s ceremony opened with their Choral Ensemble and speeches by Meredith Graves, Simon Davis, Evan Humphreys and Gabriella Valentine, bringing a tear to many of the graduates’ eyes Saturday afternoon, May 18. “This class embraced the HVA traditions and moved them forward. They are work horses, all of them, as a class, and they have risen to the top,” HVA principal Sallee Reynolds said.

“The act requires just about everybody to have insurance,” Askew said. “It’s called the mandate.” Healthcare.gov states that, “Under the Affordable Care Act, starting in 2014, you must be enrolled in a health insurance plan that meets basic minimum standards. If you aren’t, you may be required to pay an assessment. You won’t have to pay an assessment if you have very low income and coverage is unaffordable to you or for other reasons including your religious beliefs. You can also apply for a waiver asking not to pay an assessment if you don’t qualify automatically.” The problem lies with the penalty, Askew said. “One of the flaws in the

Affordable Care Act is that the penalties are so low versus the cost of insurance that a lot of people, we fear, will — and these will particularly be the young people who we really need to get into the risk pool because they’re young and healthy — will choose to pay the penalty instead of buying insurance,” he said. “So that’s a flaw in the system that will probably get corrected over time.” Insurance exchanges are the act’s attempt to return competition to the system, he said. “It’s just a website where anybody can go and see everybody who wants to sell insurance on the exchange,” he said. “See what they cost. See what the benefits are, and see whether or not they’re eligible for any subsidies from the government to help them purchase insurance. It’s like going to the mall except

going to the mall on the web. The idea is that insurance companies, private insurance companies, will compete for the business of all these new people.” Under the act, insurance companies cannot discriminate because of pre-existing conditions, he said. “Now that’s a really important point because that goes hand in glove with the mandate,” he said. “Remember, the primary provider of insurance under the Affordable Care Act are private insurance companies, just like is the case now. If you tell private insurance companies, ‘you cannot discriminate on the basis of pre-existing conditions. You have to insure everybody who applies,’ and then you don’t require everybody to be in the pool, then why would anybody ask for insurance until they already are sick?”

title of salutatorian. In all, 434 students received diplomas, as well as a big hug from Reynolds and a firm handshake from vice principal George Ashe. “The difference with this class is that they have that sense of achievement. They want to do everything well,” vice principal George Ashe said. “It’s a great

quality.” Bearden High School awarded diplomas to 427 graduates Friday night, May 17. “These kids are special. Every class has its own personality, and this one’s an academic-oriented class,” BHS principal Dr. John Bartlett said. Bartlett was immediately referencing the nine National Merit

Scholars and the four students who made a perfect 36 on the ACT. In addition, the class totaled $24.8 million in scholarships, an increase of more than $6 million over last year’s class. “The academics are unparalleled to any in history,” added Bartlett.

Bob Watt Youth Fishing Rodeo set for June 8

ALAN SLOAN asloan@farragutpress.com

Though a bit belated, The Rotary Club of Turkey Creek Sunset recently celebrated its first anniversary, among dignitaries, reviewing its contributions and praising contributors. Jack Bailey, current Rotary District 6780 governor, past district governor Frank Rothermel and assistant district governor Patty Daughtrey were dignitaries on hand during TCR's regular Tuesday evening meeting April 16 in Faith Lutheran Church. “It’s great to see the way your club has taken hold this year,” Bailey said to the gathering. While praising Ed Engel, past president and one of the club’s founders, Bailey also praised Ann Lotspeich, club president. “I think to key to any club is how strong a president you have,” Bailey said. “I think your fortunate to have Ann as president.” Lotspeich reviewed TCR conSee ROTARY on Page 9A

Town of Farragut hopes to duplicate last year’s trend of several first-time youth fishermen and their families, among 192 total, who joined second-generation families and other youngsters quite familiar with annual Bob Watt Youth Fishing Rodeo. “I’ve actually had several conversations with parents who actually participated in the Rodeo as a child,” said Jay Smelser, Town Athletics & Parks coordinator, about this year’s 29th Rodeo, set from 9:30 to 11 a.m. Saturday, June 8, fishing out of Fort Loudoun Lake at Anchor Park. “And now they’re able to share that same experience with their children, which I think is really neat.” Children age 13 and younger can fish for free. “Twenty-nine years is a long

time for any event to be running. I think that is really neat,” Smelser added Smelser. Among new child participants, “For a lot of people, it’s the first time they’ve ever gone fishing,” Smelser said. On-site registration, at 9 a.m., is required just prior to the Rodeo starting (no prior-day registration accepted). Based on recent years, Catfish and bluegill will be stocked just prior to Rodeo day according to Smelser. “It’s less than a couple hundred pounds,” he added. Awards annually given out are “biggest fish, most number of fish. And we just divide it by age and gender,” Smelser said. Town will supply a limited number of rods, but will have bait for everyone, Smelser said. Though no refreshments will be served, free bottled water is See FISHING on Page 9A

healthy foods — financially independent from KCS budget and paid through student lunch fees and federal reimbursements — is worth it according to Dickl, especially given how healthier school eating habits are influencing family eating habits. About principal Gina Byrd and her cafeteria staff, led by food services manager Donna Harrison, “They have shown leadership in nutrition education, physical education, physical activity, the school lunch menus,” said Dickl following a ceremony Friday morning, May 10, where he and Mote honored FPS for its bronze award in USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service’s Healthiest U.S. Schools Challenge. Byrd said she asked her students, “‘How many tried something that they had never tried before and they liked it?’ And a lot of the kids raised their hands, so that’s a big part of it. “We’ve had more eat lunch this year than ever,” Byrd added. “They love it.” In keeping with Healthier Challenge’s national effort, Byrd said KCS “has increased the fruits and vegetable intake with the school cafeteria as well as whole grains. … Kids are trying more and eating more fruits and vegetables and whole grain.” Mote said KCS has been able to offer fresh fruits and vegetables

because of a cooperative effort begun more than two years ago with farmers within a 250-mile radius of Knox County, known as Farm-to-School. “We are trying to encourage more and more agriculture to be locally produced and be brought into the schools.” Before Dickl took over with KCS nutrition for the 2010-11 school year, “The year prior to my arrival we budgeted $150,000 for fresh produce,” Dickl said. “This past school year … we’re looking at probably having spent about $1.5, $1.6 million. For example, “We used to use frozen broccoli, now we use broccoli florets,” he said. “We offer three to five kinds of fresh, whole fruit every day,” Dickl added. “We offer fresh baby carrots, we do a salad every day, so they get dark, leafy green [vegetables] … We’ve gone to whole grain biscuits.” “We’ve gotten feedback from parents that it’s catching on and having an impact at home.” As for statistics to back up developing healthier students, Dickl pointed to a Knox County Health Department statistic on school age children obesity rate dropping “from 39 percent to 34 percent. We feel we’re a contributing factor.” Byrd said Harrison “has done a great done feeding healthy snacks to our kindergarteners who started a full day this year. Coach Gayle Hayes and Ms. Elizabeth Stone, our P.E. teachers, have initiated it with fresh fruits and vegetable tasting.”

gardening and farming,” Hill said. “... He blogs about his experiences. He travels all over the world to work with organic farmers and learn farming methods.” Birke said his interest began with reading an Internet article about six years ago and researching further from there. It is not pricey to eat healthy and organic, he said. “I think it’s important for people to definitely buy from their farmers because you’re keeping your money in your local economy,” he said. “You’re supporting your friends and neighbors, and you’re getting good, nutritious food.” Birke said he wrote his book for a specific audience. “I wrote it for kids my age and younger, trying to get interested in the food system and wanting to know a little bit more about what they’re eating,” he said. The event included a performance by the bluegrass band,

Brandywine, Christian Academy of Knoxville student art displays and children’s activities, Hill said. Vendors had a variety of plants. New this year, the festival had door prizes, she said, and a drawing for a $1,000 shopping spree at Franklin Square. The event served as a fundraiser for the Knox County Council of

Garden Clubs, she said. Linda Wimbrow, festival chair, said the clubs’ money is prioritized for the Beardsley Community Farm, Ivan Racheff House and Gardens and the Knoxville Botanical Gardens. “I think it’s wonderful to have gardens that the community can use and enjoy and learn from,” Wimbrow said.

I’m torn!

I’m torn by what happened today. It all started when we got in the Subaru and headed to downtown Woodland, Washington when Terry said, “Uh oh, I’ll bet there’s a mouse in the car! Look at those pumpkin seed shells on the floor board.” He pointed to a little scattering of shells on my side of Pam the car. Now I’m Young a big fan of Make it Mickey Fun! Mouse, but he doesn’t b l a z e through space when you least expect him to. It’s that scurrying that mice do, like a flasher at wedding, that scares me to death, and the thought of a mouse in the car made me ready to spring like, well a set mouse trap. “Where do ya think he is?” I asked, as if my husband were a Mouseketeer. “I don’t know, he could be back at the house getting more pumpkin seeds.” That thought calmed me as we drove into town. Just as we pulled into the bank parking lot, I sneezed (no I’m not allergic to mice) and reached for a Kleenex in the glove compartment. That’s when I saw it! The mouse had made a nest out of the Kleenex! I screamed, slammed the glove compartment door shut, wiped my nose on my sleeve and took some big, deep cleansing breathes to calm myself. Terry was hysterically laughing as I continued to try to regain my composure. “OMG, she (I decided it was a girl) is in that nest, I just know it. She’s probably got babies in there or if she’s back at the house like you said, now she’s probably upset because we’ve driven off in her new RV! Oh and if she does have babies, they’re gonna be hungry pretty soon and since she’s a lactating mother, her little breasts are gonna get all engorged while were gallivanting off to town to see what’s new at Walmart!” Terry just kept laughing, which helped my mood a little bit. He composed himself to go in the bank and even though I didn’t have any business in there I wasn’t about to sit in a quiet car waiting for him or the mouse to show up whichever came first. His banking business took way too long and he suggested, “Why don’t you go out in the car and sing real loud so the mouse won’t come out?” I returned to our car and sang at the top of my lungs “M-I-C, K-E-Y M-O-U-S-E, Mickey Mouse, Mickey Mouse, forever let us hold our banners high. . .” until he returned. It’s hard to know what to do when you’re torn. See, I’m an animal lover, but I also eat them. I don’t wear fur, but I have a leather purse. I like Mickey but we own mouse traps and use Decon. I’m torn between snuffing this little four-legged cheese eater or seeing it as a possible opportunity to make trillions of dollars like Walt did. If I could get over the fact that mice scurry, maybe I could share our car with this new little family. Mice have babies every six weeks and those babies can have babies when they’re six weeks old! Maybe I could journal their life on the road. When we got back home, Terry opened the glove compartment (I couldn’t look) and took the nest out. After a thorough inspection he concluded the shredded Kleenex was not the nest, just the building materials for a nest that must be someplace else. . . in the car. So I sit here torn between Decon and one of those signs to

tributions during its first year. “One of the first things I remember doing is sponsoring Bridge [Refugee Services],” Lotspeich said. “We had Jennifer Cornwell come in and speak to us one night, and everybody said, ‘Gee, that’s a great project.’ So she joined our club and we started sponsoring Bridge activities.” Lotspeich said TCR was “one of nine clubs” to sign up for “the Club Visioning event,” adding, “That was a pretty good kick-start

on our first year. “Of course, our pancake breakfast, that was our first fundraiser,” Lotspeich added. “I think we cleared about $1,100.” However, “When we got ready to write the check, Ed got up and said, “‘Gee, if we can raise $500 more, Frank Rothermel said he would match it, and we did it like that,” Lotspeich said while snapping her fingers. “So we’re in line to give $500 scholarships [in May] to a Farragut [High School] junior, vocation. I think that’s a precedent-setting project for us.”

TCR also supported Honor Air by “writing letters to the veterans and see them come off the plane ... they're just overwhelmed by the people who are there to see them come home,” Lotspeich said. Flu Shot Saturday, in cooperation with The Rotary Club of Farragut, was “a fun thing for us to participate in. It’s a good thing we did because three of our members are nurses,” Lotspeich said of the nurses who offered “driveby” shots.

If excessive rain and thunderstorms means 29th Rodeo can’t be completed June 8, “We’ll just cancel it,” Smelser said. For more information, call

Smelser at 865-966-7057. Rodeo day falls on Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency’s annual Free Fishing Day, which on the second Saturday in June “allows

all residents and non-residents to fish without a license,” a TWRA press release stated.

Concord Watch, Clock & Jewelry Center opened in November 2012, but owner J.D. Miller has worked on watches for more than 50 years. Miller, the watch and pocket watch specialist at the store, estimates he started working on watches in his teens. “I started out just as a kid, tearing watches apart,” he said. “And at first, I didn’t succeed, but I kept doing it. And then finally I could put them together, and it was kind of a, really a hobby.” Miller, originally from North Carolina, was self-taught, he said. “You just take tweezers, screwdrivers,” he said. “You take the watch apart, and you See WATCH on Page 2B

ROBBY O’DANIEL rodaniel@farragutpress.com

To celebrate National EMS Week, which happens May 19 through May 25, an EMS appreciation luncheon took place at Turkey Creek Medical Center on Thursday, May 16. Constance Vucelich, emergency room director at Turkey Creek Medical Center, called EMS “our livelihood.” “They’re absolutely vital,” Vucelich said. “When you think of somebody with a life-threatening problem, such as a heart attack or a stroke, they are vital, what they do in the field, and we communicate well with them. Once the patient hits the door, we keep that continuum of care to get the patient the service they need as quickly as possible.” EMS personnel received Tshirts at the event that read, “EMS. One mission. One team. 2013.” “These are the guys that stabilize a patient, and you cannot underestimate what they do to get someone out of their home or wherever that person is, to get them stable and still breathing

to the door of our ER,” she said. “It cannot be underestimated how important they are and what their contribution is to that patient’s outcome.” Debra Hamilton, executive director of cardiovascular services for Tennova Healthcare, said EMS personnel are the first responders. “From my perspective, they’re always the first at any event, whether it’s on the scene of a horrible accident or a patient experiencing chest pain,” Hamilton said. “And without them, a patient has such a low probability of survival. So their role, in my mind, is key, absolutely key to everything. They start the medical chain of care to a patient absolutely.” It’s important to thank them in a laid-back atmosphere, she said. “Because in the heat of the moment when you’re just trying to get a patient taken care of, you don’t take time to really say thank you because you’re more concerned about the patient,” she said. “So it’s a great time just to sit back, relax, have a good See EMS on Page 2B

put it back together. If it runs, you’re successful.” The store, located at 11130 Kingston Pike, suite 1, offers clocks, watches, jewelry and repair. Miller stressed the longevity of a good watch. “People today want to buy something,” he said. “When it tears up, throw it away, and go buy a new one. It doesn’t work that way with a good watch. It’ll last you your lifetime and your children’s lifetime with a good watch, but that doesn’t seem to be the attitude of the younger generation.” Miller compared caring for a watch to caring for a car. “You see old, old cars running up and down the road where people have taken care of them, and that’s basically what you have to do with a watch, and that’s where my business comes from, taking

We appreciate what you do for our community, for patients that we serve,’” she said. “Because really, without them, the hospital doesn’t function without EMS, and patients don’t survive without them.” care of them,” he said. Young people use cell phones to tell time today, he said. “Many people wear watches as a, they wear a Rolex, I guess, as a sign of success because you have to pay pretty good money if you’re going to buy one,” he said. On Thursday, May 9, Miller wore a Rolex, but it was a test to ensure it worked well. “Every watch that we sell, we check because these are not new watches off the shelf,” he said. He estimated the Rolex he wore was made in the ‘60s. Miller prefers pocket watches over wristwatches, he said. “They’re older,” he said. “It was the beginning of the watch industry. They made pocket watches long before they made wristwatches, and I guess that had something to do with it.” The oldest watch the shop has is a Rundell and Bridge watch, made in England in 1795. It is called a pair case watch, he said.

Though seven of the 11 Farragut players seeing significant playing time in Friday's Section 1-AAA showdown were seniors, the other four Admirals were huge contributors. In the face of severe wildness from senior staff ace Kyle Serrano — giving up seven walks, a hit batter and two hits during 2 Admirals 8 2/3 innings Smoky Bears 5 while starting on three days rest against Sevier County — a sophomore reliever would save the day. “Raby was the man,” FHS head coach Matt Buckner said with excitement in the team’s post-game huddle about sophomore pitcher Patrick Raby, who helped carry Farragut to an 8-5 win at FHS's John Heatherly Field May 17. It marks the program's 12th Class AAA state tourney appearance in the past 13 years. Admitting he was “a little bit nervous” while pitching in the biggest game of his life, Raby

Farragut High School’s boys soccer team is headed back to Murfreesboro for the first time since 2010. The Admirals (20-3) answered an early wake-up call Saturday and defeated Kingsport DobynsBennett in a high noon showdown at Farragut Stadium in the sectional round of the state playoffs. The match was an afternoon tilt since Farragut’s graduation ceremonies were scheduled for Saturday night. The game was early but not as early as it could’ve been if the Admirals had lost in Region 2-AAA championship match on Thursday, May 16. But Farragut won that game and got a 2-0 victory over Maryville and got to host a

Section 1-AAA Saturday against the Indians (19-4-1). “Getting that win [against Maryville] was big because it meant that we got to stay home,” Farragut head coach Wallie Culbreth said. “If we would Admirals 2 have lost that Indians 0 game, then our kids would’ve had to travel and we would’ve had to leave campus at 6:30 in the morning to play at 11 a.m. “It wasn’t a motivation but it was a huge relief. I tried to motivate the kids with it but I couldn’t.” The Admirals, who have not given up a goal in the postseason, spent the week avenging a pair of home losses to the Rebels and the Indians. Maryville defeated the Ads 1-0 to claim the regular-season

championship and automatic regional berth. KingsportDobyns Bennett downed Farragut 3-0 in Knox County. “We haven’t been scored on in the playoffs and the good thing is that we were able to avenge two of our losses on our home field. “We lost those games at home and that was embarrassing.” Farragut’s other loss came at the Palmetto Cup in South Carolina. In Saturday’s match the Admirals took a 1-0 lead when senior Emilio Moore scored on a penalty kick. The goal was set up when Dobyns-Bennett’s Zack Feathers fouled Marvin Mendy on a challenge for the ball inside the goal box. “The defender just took my ankle out from under me,”

Mendy said. Moore, who has battled recent injuries, scored on the set play in the eighth minute. Culbreth said that the call was correct. “It’s always unfortunate when you get a penalty kick in a tournament game but the foul was there and the call was the right call,” he said. Moore’s marker was the only goal of the first half. The Indians showed signs of life in the second half and missed several scoring opportunities as senior goalkeeper Gus Green, a first-year soccer player, made several dazzling plays over the final 10 minutes.

“That was insane,” Green said of the frantic pace in the last 10 minutes. “We were just kind of playing a regular game.” Green added that he learned from the first meeting with Kingsport Dobyns-Bennett, which said good-bye to 13 graduating seniors. “I learned that they had some really fast forwards,” Green said of the Indians. “I learned that I was going to have to get up in the box and not give up those easy shots.” Green had some stellar saves late, including one when he flicked a sure goal out of an empty net with 4 minutes, 27 seconds remaining in the game. Mendy overcame a pulled groin to seal Farragut’s win with a goal in the 80th minute.

KEN LAY Correspondent

Farragut High School’s boys soccer team got a stellar defensive effort when it was needed most. The Admirals allowed just one shot in a 2-0 victory over Oak Ridge (14-9) in the Region 2-AAA semifinals Tuesday, May 14, at Farragut Stadium. Farragut, which improved to 18-3, needed its defense to step up because senior goalkeeper Gus Green couldn’t play. “I’ve been having flu-like symptoms and I think it’s pretty much passed, but my whole body has been aching,” Green said. “My defense didn’t let up. “They knew that I was sick and

I have to give it to my defense.” Admirals’ head coach Wallie Culbreth said that his defense was key to the victory. “The defense really played well,” Culbreth said. “They knew that Gus wasn’t feeling well and they realAdmirals 2 ly stepped up and Wildcats 0 t h a t shows you just what kind of team this is. “Gus faced one shot.” Green was injured in Farragut’s recent victory over Catholic. He was lifted after a violent collision and started that game despite the illness and said he wasn’t quite feeling up to par. Farragut took advantage of being a man up in the second

half, with the disqualification of Oak Ridge’s Ryan Byrd with 16:18 left in the first half. The Admirals, District 4-AAA Tournament champs, finally got on the board when Marvin Mendy scored in the 61st minute off a pass from freshman Dami Omitaomu. “Dami gave me a great ball,” Mendy said. “That was a really big goal because we really didn’t play all that well in the first half.” Farragut picked up another marker in the 67th minute when Mendy passed the ball to Kai Miettinen, who promptly banged into the back of the Oak Ridge net. “It feels great to get this far,” Miettinen said. “Marvin sent the ball through and I was able to get it into the net.”

Shootout failures end HVA soccer season vs. Rebs ■

ALAN SLOAN asloan@farragutpress.com

Listening to excited Maryville goalkeeper Ryan Jorgensen after his performance against Hardin Valley Academy, it was more than good guesses when explaining how he blocked three of four HVA shootout “penalty kicks.” “I’ve got my own little theory,

Baseball From page 3B

inning, “My arm was a little tired, and I think it did help me a little bit,” Raby said. “I went out there trying to keep a loose arm, and I was pounding the zone.” Buckner said Raby “bailed us out, did a great job. I’m really proud of him.”

comebacks this season, didn’t have one more against the Lady Eagles (41-6-1). Farragut, which Lady Eagles 4 finished Lady Admirals 0 the season 30-12, mounted a threat in the top of the first inning when junior center fielder Avery Blankenburg doubled with one out. Blankenburg was stranded at second as Lady Eagles’ senior

but I can’t say,” Jorgensen said after his Rebels outlasted the Hawks 3-1 in a “pk” shootout following a 110-minute 1-1 tie to decide this Region 2-AAA tourney semifinal at HVA Tuesday, May 14. Jorgensen got the game into pk’s after his fingertip diving stop of an Ethan Haskell header, apparently headed into the net, midway into the second 10-

minute overtime. Hardin Valley was inches away from victory midway through the first fiveRebels 1 minute suddenHawks 1 d e a t h overtime. Cameron Schneider’s well-timed pass into the box to Logan Kington was quickly passed right to a cutting, and

open, Jeff Lohman. However, Kington’s pass was just barely beyond Lohman, who would have had a short, open toe-tap attempt to win the game. Hawks goalkeeper Ivan Torres, who according to HVA head coach Mike McLean played only his second game of the season in goal, came up big. “He did a great job,” said McLean, whose

team ends the season 8-6-4. Down 1-0 at halftime, HVA tied it in the 63rd minute. Sean Ryan’s pass into the box was headed into the net by Lohman from eight yards out. “Our boys, when we have to play we step up and play. You’ve seen that through the district tournament,” Hawks senior forward Chris Gallaher said.

The Ads (32-8) went up for good with a four-run fourth inning that included junior second baseman Sam Schulze’s RBI single — which followed his second inning two-RBI double — plus an RBI single from freshman third baseman Duncan Pence. Pence also came through defensively with a diving catch of a line drive in the Smoky Bears’

fourth inning. “Pence was great at third base,” Buckner said. Chase Chambers, junior first baseman, provided late-inning insurance after ripping an RBI double off the right-centerfield fence in the sixth inning. Chambers scored on senior Brett Hagenow’s RBI single. Senior Cameron “Jammer” Strickland singled to lead off the sixth and

scored on Chamber’s double. Hagenow began the four-run Admirals outburst in the fourth with a single. After a walk and hit batter came RBI sacrifice flies from Strickland and senior shortstop Nick Senzel. Senior Anthony El-Chibani also singled for the Admirals. In addition to scoring one run, senior Alex Schuettler's throw

home from left field to Hagenow gunned down Smoky Bear Dalton Ford following a two-out single with runners at first and second. “We played great defense, for the most part,” Buckner said. Farragut pinch-runner Gabe Waldrop scored two runs. About Serrano, Buckner said, “He's just in a bad rhythm ... we're going to get him fixed.”

right hander Carly Lewis recorded the final two outs of the inning when she fanned Shelby Miller and got Mary Claire Coyne to pop up to first. Lewis, who notched her 21st shutout of the season (and fourth in the playoffs), escaped the first and went on to retire the next six Lady Admirals and record five strikeouts over the next two innings. “She did a good job keeping us off-balance,” said Blankenburg, who had the only two Farragut hits off of Lewis.
