No change to Town’s vehicular sign ordinance ■


A recent ruling by town of Farragut Judge Lucinda Troyer has ended Town attempts to amend and/or clarify vehicular sign ordinance language. Upholding fines against businesses that were cited by Town enforcement officials as being in non-compliance with the ordinance — citing vehicles said to be left for extended peri-

ods of time with vehicular signage near Town highways, streets and roads — Troyer’s ruling was enough for Town administrator David Smoak to cease with efforts to review the ordinance through the Visual Resource Review Committee. “We were waiting on the judge’s ruling to determine whether or not there was any need to change the ordinance based on our interpretation of it,” Smoak said. “And the judge

upheld our interpretation.” “Silo Cigars was on the April docket; Judge Troyer entered a guilty ruling and fined them $50 plus $100 court costs. The Bed Store and Knoxville Academy of Martial Arts were on the May docket; Judge Troyer ruled both guilty and fined each $50 plus $100 court costs,” a Town press release stated. Smoak said the Town was forced to cite business owners who “failed to move their vehi-

cles, or put it in a space that [is not near] the right-of-way. “This is an ordinance that we don’t have to enforce that often,” Smoak added. “We don’t go out there trying to look for every sign on every single vehicle on every single day. “But if somebody parks a very large vehicle near the right-ofway and leaves it there for an extended periods of time, that’s when we have to go and talk to them,” Smoak added.

However, Smoak didn’t completely close the door to rewriting the ordinance. “If anyone wanted to ask for us to review the ordinance, then we’d be happy to look into that,” Smoak said. “If a business wanted to revisit that, wanted to make an application to revisit that ordinance, then certainly we could through that process,” he added.

Monopine proposed for Farragut ■ ALAN SLOAN


Flag Day in Farragut may not induce parade-fever or backyard barbeque gatherings, but the Farragut and Highland Park Ruritan clubs make sure to remind people that patriotism is an important trait to remember. Part of both Ruritan clubs’ community presence is to display flags outside more than 260 local businesses in honor of seven American holidays, including Flag Day. Route teams made up of two people who divide the work to put up the flags as quickly as possible, a process that typically takes about 12 hours. Marion Chiles, Farragut Ruritan Club president, has helped with the flags since the program’s first year. “We started [the flag program] in 1994 … that means this is our 20th year. This has been a good program. We are glad to do it,” Chiles said. “Seeing the beautiful U.S. flag flying along the street is the main thing I like about it, and I think people appreciate it,” he added. Gary Kranz, president of the Highland Park Ruritan Club, shares one of the routes with his wife and fellow board of director member, June. “When all the flags are out, the wind is blowing and old glory is in the breeze, it really is great,” Gary Kranz said.

Gary Krantz, president of Highland Park Ruritan Club, stands with one of the 200 flags they place around the Farragut and Loudon County areas on Flag Day. This is just one of seven holidays the club sets flags in the yards of participating businesses throughout the year.

Participating businesses donate $25 annually to have a flag displayed on their property, and part of the proceeds from the Farragut club make scholarships available to graduating Farragut High School and surrounding private school

seniors. Highland Park donates 100 percent of its proceeds to Lenoir City High School scholarships. These scholarships are just a See FLAG DAY on Page 2A

A Chicago-based telecommunications company seeks to place a “telecommunications structure,” 160 feet tall, near the former location of Silver Spoon near the intersection of Kingston Pike and Campbell Station Road. This is one of at least three telecommunications companies that have sought to build towers in the town of Farragut in recent weeks. To make it astatically pleasing and supposedly making its erection more of a possibility, FMHC seeks to build its 16-story tower in the form of a pine tree, labeled “monopine” according to a legal notice. This also was confirmed by two spokespersons with Environmental Corporation of America, a firm working on behalf of FMHC to clear environmental hurdles.

KCS names Mosley as new FIS principal ■


Farragut Intermediate School students and parents will have a new principal welcoming them through the front doors when the new school session begins Aug. 11. Reggie Mosley, most recently principal at Sarah Moore Greene Magnet Academy, has been named Kay Wellons’ successor as principal at FIS. “I’m excited, as I have been at all of my placements,” Mosley

said, adding he looks forward to working at Farragut Intermediate. “This is a great place,” he said, adding he knows the community to be warm Mosley and welcoming. Wellons, after nearly 30 years in education, decided to retire

this year to spend more time with her family. Her last day was Friday, June 6. “I think Mr. Mosley will do wonderfully,” Wellons said. “He will be incredible. I think the world of him. “I have been honored to work with him in small groups,” she added. “He a very sharp, articulate, knowledgeable, compassionate and caring gentleman. I think he will bring a wealth of knowledge and experience. “Oftentimes, since I have three sons, I have really seen and

validated the many pluses of a male role model; and, of course, I think that’s the way it is for students, in general, that a strong role model can be just such a plus.” Mosley said he hopes to transition into FIS the week of June 16. Wellons said she thinks the transition for parents and students from a female to a male administrator will run “as smooth as silk. “I think parents and teachers really desire a male,” she said

then added, “I think more than that, it has to do with the person. I think Mr. Mosley’s reputation of excellence precedes him.” Mosley has been an administrator for about 16 years. Before serving as principal of Sarah Moore Greene, he was assistant principal then principal at Blue Grass Elementary School. “He did great things at Blue Grass, and I know he will do great things at Farragut Intermediate,” Wellons said.

Go & Glow glimmered ■


Glow-in-the-dark and dogfriendly activities drew Farragut and area families to the first GO & GLOW in the Dark, a project of Farragut Business Alliance. The event, presented by TDS, took place Saturday, June 7, on Brooklawn Street alongside Kroger Marketplace in Farragut. Organizers initially had hoped to have a video link to the live sychronized fireflies in Elkmont in the Great Smoky Mountains National Park. However, that plan did not come to fruition. “Our goal all along was to bring a family-fun street fair to Farragut and to make it affordable for families,” Allison Sousa, executive director of FBA, said. “We were fortunate that National Get Outdoors Day partnered with us to give GO & GLOW in

small part of the countless projects the clubs sponsor. “I’ve liked the organization. It’s a great patriotic family-oriented organization,” Chiles said. Flag Day became an official holiday on May 30, 1916, when then U.S. President Woodrow Wilson made a proclamation to make June 14 an annual holiday

the Dark national exposure. “During the planning process — behind the scenes and in initial discussions with officials — we were also trying to coordinate some sort of footage of the fireflies,” Sousa said. “We dealt with folks from the Smoky Mountains all the way to Washington, D.C., to try to make it happen, but it just wasn’t possible. “But, we knew it was a long shot going in, so we intentionally did not include anything about video in our publicity; rather, promoted what we knew we could deliver: A family-fun street fair that glowed in the dark, got folks outdoors, drew people to Farragut and celebrated the synchronous fireflies,” she said. “We accomplished the latter with firefly fast facts, photos and other educational information provided by the National Park Service and sources they recom-

mended.” Overall, Sousa said the feedback for the event was very positive. She estimated the crowd at about 1,300. “Everyone seemed to have fun; people were smiling and playing and the vendors were happy,” she said. “I thought it would be wonderful for the kids to experience,” Farragut resident Debbie Pinchok said about the event. “I think [GO & GLOW] will be great for the family.” Children wrote on a virtual graffiti wall with lights, met with firefighters, played games and toasted marshmallows for S’mores. Sousa said there was a child on every rope on both of the walls of the rock-climbing wall from the time the event opened

to honor the flag. There are a total of 27 official versions of American flags over the course of the nation’s history, the most current dating back to Hawaii’s entrance into the United States July 4, 1960. The Ruritan Club’s annual flag displays are an effort to bring awareness to the holidays. Ruritan Clubs have served communities all over the nation for 86 years as a civic service

organization. Call Chiles at 693-7750 or Krantz at 986-3870 for more information or membership questions about the Ruritan Club.

As he moves into his new role, Mosley said he hopes he can build on what was already established years ago, particularly during his first year at FIS. Mosley said he wants to let people know he is approachable and a good listener, and his goals

include increasing the number of advanced students and making sure the students and their parents know who their principal is by being visible. Mosley is married to Barbara Mosley, and the have two children who are recent graduates of Middle Tennessee State University.

GO & Glow in the Dark The first year of GO & GLOW in the Dark was filled with playing, climbing, dancing, laughing and glowing! The Farragut Business Alliance regrets that a miscommunication over which we had no control regarding the fireflies might have caused some confusion about what was consistently advertised (in our newspaper ads, radio commercials, television appearances, press releases and social media platforms) as a “summer fun street fair.” The “GO” stood for “Get Outdoors,” as the event was partnered with the National Get Outdoors Day initiative. Any public reference by the FBA regarding the fireflies was referenced as “celebrating” and “learning about” the synchronous fireflies. This was accomplished through the “GLOW” of activities at sunset and the firefly education and fun facts (provided by the National Park Service) scrolling on the screens throughout the night.

While our goal was to bulk up the firefly piece as much as possible, discussions were internal only, so as not to set false expectations for the public. Like any street fair, we charged a minimal admission (to cover thousands of dollars in infrastructure costs) and a modest per ticket price once inside the venue. Tickets averaged 60 cents each (5 for $3) or less, as unlimited activity bands were available for $10. Unlimited rock climbing wall passes were only $8, versus $10 or more per climb as charged by similar venues. The FBA and event planners truly tried to make this an affordable, fun family event. The venue was loaded with glow-in-the-dark street fair activities, such as slime & bubbles, face painting, a kayak walk, sailboat simulator & knot tying, ring toss, corn hole, Frisbees, a donut-on-a-string contest, fabulous virtual graffiti wall, S’mores stations, glow powder for a fun & messy glow dance, music provided by a professional DJ throughout the

night, and more. A $500 kayak package and iPad were also given away and there were half a dozen activities designed specifically for families’ fourlegged friends. Most activities were a mere 1-2 tickets each, again, in an effort to make the event affordable for families. A dedicated event and volunteer team worked on GO & GLOW in the Dark for months, always driven by the goal of providing an affordable, summer fun street fair to families throughout the region. In addition, most were on site for 18 hours the day of the event, the first 10 of which were spent setting up in the heat, but doing so gladly, knowing that they would deliver an event of which they’d be proud. Input will certainly be taken back to the committee for consideration when planning next year’s event, but all in all, kudos to those involved for a job well done!


[Farragut] Municipal Planning Commission and ultimately the Board of Mayor and Aldermen.” Moreover, Farragut Mayor Ralph McGill said the company has approached neither FMPC nor BOMA. “I don’t know a lot about this new one, but I don’t predict a lot of success,” McGill added about FMHC’s proposed monopine tower. Two other attempts by nationwide cellular giants to build telecommunications towers in Farragut haven’t gotten off the ground — one meeting a quick death according to McGill. “There was an overture by Verizon to the Sugarwood subdivision saying they wanted to put

an antenna somewhere on our public property. That didn’t last long,” McGill said. “That was shot down pretty quickly. … That was within the last few weeks. “I was a little surprised about the Sugarwood thing coming up,” he added. “That’s an awful place to put an antenna like that: right smack in the front of the subdivision.” Meanwhile, FMPC awaits a possible overture from U.S. Cellular — with permission from Knox County Schools and Knox County Board of Education — attempting to place a telecommunications tower on the grounds of Farragut High School.

Because “cell towers are only allowed on Town property,” Riemann’s response further stated, “A rezoning process would have to move through the

M. Allison Sousa Executive Director Farragut Business Alliance

671-TALK • Dear fellow Farragut resident who’s “heart was broken” by the small/medium, thickhaired dog who was heavily panting and tagging behind two joggers on a hot day; although you make some valid points, you are mostly incorrect. According to the Petcentric, a pet advice and information website run by Purina, dogs love to run. “While most of us have to force ourselves to exercise ... a dog needs no motivation to go outside and run. Running is very high on most dogs’ lists of favorite things to do.” Petcentric also says, “Many dogs were bred for running.” You said that this dog was thick furred. According to the ASPCA, a dog’s thick fur — if he has a double coat (an inner, insulating coat and an outer, weather proof coat) — serve to cool his body in warm weather, just as it warms him in the cold. Dogs really are made for heat and running. And they do enjoy it. Like you said, some dogs are trained to run long distances, but in order to be trained, one must train. And I doubt there were no houses for two miles because Turkey Creek Road has multiple subdivisions branching off from it, not to mention several parks where the joggers could park and run or fill up there [sic] dog’s water bowl. Most dogs are healthy enough to run a few miles in the morning sun, and if they are not, they need to get healthier by exercising! Next time I run I will do what you ask me to and grow some fur “head to toe,” and take off my shoes and grow some pads on feet, too (which were made for running, by the way) and I will run two-tofive miles on concrete in 75 degree heat, like you said. But before I start I will ask my dog how much he wants to run, like you asked me, and I’ll see what he says. Hopefully we will have a good run together. Thanks for your concern for the health of our dogs. • I am really confused. Farragut can spend millions of dollars on an old house, tens of thousand of dollars to find out if their flawed sign ordinance is flawed, another tens of thousand of dollars to find out who Farragut is in branding. Yet, they are millions of dollars behind in

paying their dues to Knox County they have collected from the people of Farragut. It makes no sense. Somebody needs to wake up and do something. This town is going down the tubes. Editor’s Note: Farragut allegedly owes Knox County Schools about $1.3 million in Mixed Drink Tax revenue depending on where the accounting period begins. • The person who wrote in about the Concord Road/ Northshore Drive round-about was essentially correct saying that you don’t stop at a yield sign if nothing is coming. However, there are only three entrances to the circle, not four. • There is a little white dog that runs free on Augusta National Way. I don’t know whom he belongs to, but wanted them to know that I almost hit him while driving my car. I’m sure this has happened to others. Please take care of that precious little dog or give him to a family who will. It would be heartbreaking to find him dead on the street. Thank you. • It disgusts me knowing that Farragut city fathers see the right to ignore the city’s tax responsibilities to pay the schools as required by state law, but would rather spend money on decorative street lights or spending a millions dollar on a historic house. If the city pushes the school system to sue the city in order to get the required taxes, we, as citizens, should have the right to sue politicians who refuse to pay the city’s tax bill. Parents should be outraged knowing the city has shortchanged their children’s education. Parents and teachers should be outraged knowing children are being forced to sell coupon booklets to make up for a lack of school funds. I thought Farragut’s ability to keep their budget in the black was commendable. Now, knowing, it is horrifying to know that it is done by taking money from our schools.

New Farragut Youth Football using intense FHS coaching ■ ALAN SLOAN

After “more than 50 years” of Cedar Bluff Farragut Optimist Club-sponsored youth football, a “rebranding” has turned CBFO Football into Farragut Youth

Football. Along with the name change — though CBFO will continue sponsoring the age 5-to-14 group of teams with players mostly from Farragut schools — FYF is placing a new emphasis on teaching its coaches to promote

safer play, instruct proper technique and require appropriate conduct. Working in conjunction with Eddie Courtney, Farragut High School varsity football head coach, and his entire staff, new FYF Football commissioner Ryan

Collins is leaning on Courtney and his staff to train FYF coaches in all aspects of the game. In addition to state-required concussion-recognition training of all youth coaches through qualified health instructors, FYF coaches “are going through

coaches’ education classes just from the standpoint of all the things you need to know to coach,” Courtney said. “… We’re all certified teachers. We’ve had to pass the concussion testing” See FYF on Page 7A

Admirals’ camp gets rave reviews ■


Annual Farragut High School Baseball Camp was started by former FHS head coach Tommy Pharr in the late 1990s. Matt Buckner, current Admirals skipper and camp director, said he hosted “probably about a hundred” young baseball players ages 7 to 14 Monday through Thursday, June 2-5, at FHS’s John Heatherly Field for three hours of instruction per day. Chrissy Estes, her son, Cason, 12, and daughter, Reagan, 7, came to watch Hayden Estes, 9, a rising fifthgrader at Farragut Intermediate School.

Troy Hart's Astros were a redhot girls softball team until Brad Applegate's Rays cooled them off just in time. Coming out of the loser's bracket in CBFO 11-to-13 League post-season action, the Rays swept the Astros to claim the annual tournament championship. Icing on the cake was a 5-2 victory Friday evening, June 6, at Northshore Field No. 1. “My girls were hitting, they were running, they were just doing everything they needed to do,” said Applegate, whose Rays beat the Braves 8-1 then defeated the Astros 4-2 Thursday, June 5, to force Friday's showdown. “They just played the game like

Estes said Hayden’s experience was well worth the $100 charge per player. Friends with Matt and Karen Hagenow, who have had three sons play for Buckner at FHS, Estes said, “My friend, Karen, highly recommended coming here. She said her boys have had the most fun at this camp and they learned a lot. … We’re trying to follow suit.” “My son has learned a lot so far,” Estes added. “He’s coming home to tell his dad [Howell] how to stand and then how to bat. And he’s just so excited to be on the Farragut field.” Having watched each day of the camp in person, Estes See CAMP on Page 7A

they know how to do. One girl hit a home run the other night, which is awesome. Everybody played hard,” he added. Finishing second in the regular season at 9-7, the Rays went 4-1 in the tournament. Winning its final seven games of the regular season to finish third, the Astros had a nine-game winning streak snapped Thursday evening before Friday's loss. “My girls deserve all the credit in the world, obviously. We started slow, I think we lost our first four games,” Astros head coach Troy Hart said about his team’s overall season. “They learned how to win and learned how to

not make errors. Once they learned how not to make errors they did a really good job.” The Rays struck fast in Friday's championship game, scoring three runs in the top of the first inning. Caroline Carr, Heidi Pattinson and Bailey Watson all reached base after hitting the ball before Victoria Roberts’ RBI sacrifice fly. Aubrey Norton’s twoRBI double made it 3-0. The Astros scored once in the bottom of the first. Two-out singles from Carlee Hart and Hannah Nye, plus a walk to Mary Iverson, preceded Anna Witt’s RBI single. The Rays scored two more in the third inning. Bailey singled then scored on Victoria’s RBI double. Victoria scored on an RBI

groundout from Aubrey. Answering with one run in the bottom of the third, the Astros got consecutive singles from Anna Spates and Carlee before Hannah’s RBI single made it 5-2. However, Nyapot Tel, Rays’ winning pitcher in all three elimination games, worked out of further trouble while retiring the last six batters she faced Friday — including two strikeouts. Abbi Hamilton and Micah Stair also had hits for the Rays Friday. Mckenzie Fair drew a walk. Kaylie Campbell also contributed during the tournament. Other Astros contributors were Cammy Pujado, Alyssa Ballinger, Drew Duncan, Lexi Gnagne, Megan Riley, Aksu Irmak and Makenzie Riley.

among other requirements. “We’re trying to make sure parents understand that [youth] coaches are well qualified to coach,” Courtney added. “It’s also treating people right and being concerned about their whole development.” One example about technique, Courtney said, is youth coaches sometimes line up players too far apart during one-on-one tackling drills. “They need to be up close.” Collins, also head coach of a FYF minor pee wee team (10 year olds), said Courtney’s coaches “can teach and explain proper techniques. A lot of guys volunteer, they mean well, but they don’t know the fundamentals as well.” Sessions also stress “what we do to keep our kids safe,” Collins said. “And we want the coaches to know how to approach parents. “We’ve had two [sessions] already and we’re going to have one more big one right before the season kicks off,” Collins added about the final coaching instruction session set for midJuly just before pre-season practice begins. With rule changes in recent years, the sessions are intended to update a volunteer, for example, “who at the last minute has to get out there and coach who hasn’t played in 20 years themselves,” Courtney said. Having seven years youth coaching experience, Collins said most FYF teams this summer and fall will have five coaches (the maximum allowed). Collins and Courtney agreed that youth football players are faster and stronger versus a few years ago “because they’re now doing off-season stuff year round,” Courtney said. Though Collins said sign-ups were down “probably 50 or 60 kids” from the same point last

said, “It’s very organized, too, from what I’ve watched … Not a lot of standing around. ” A first baseman and pitcher in Farragut Baseball, Inc. recreational league the past four years, Hayden throws left-handed but bats right-handed. Saying Buckner’s camp allowed Hayden to experiment playing other positions, “He said he wanted to try the outfield,” Estes said. “… But I like him at first.” Buckner was assisted by all non-graduates from his 2014 Class AAA state title team “that weren’t playing” summer league baseball. FHS assistant coaches

also provided instruction. Rob Mashburn was on hand to watch his son, Cooper, a 12-yearold rising eighth-grader at FMS where he’s a third baseman “He really enjoyed working with the high schoolers and playing on the big field,” Mashburn said. “It’s always great when you get a local camp with such good instruction; for the boys to be able to look up to high-school aged boys who are good role models and have succeeded in what they were trying to do. “I enjoyed that Cooper gets to interact with people [up to] five years older that are good role models, work hard, have had success on the field, in the classroom and in everyday life.”

year (sign-up one Saturday a month in April, May, June and July), a relatively new online system — still needing its PayPal element implemented — may help raise numbers because signups can be accomplished anytime instead of just targeting one day a month, he added. FYF will be better equipped to oversee conduct and basic requirements of all its teams versus previous years, Collins said, because he’ll be working with a new “football board” featuring “one of the more experienced” head coaches from each age division to oversee that division of coaches and players. Cost for families to sign up their young players is $225 for senior midgets (ages 13 and 14), $200 for all other tackle football levels (ages 7 to 12) and $125 for flag football (ages 5 and 6). Courtney said Farragut youth football “has always been respected” in Knox County Metro Youth Football circles.

Grand Reunion The 20th year of Farragut High School Grand Reunion featured, as always, event organizers George Hamilton (Class of 1943) and his little brother, Horace Hamilton (Class of 1945). This latest gathering where alumni remembered good times from simpler days while sharing hugs and laughs was Saturday morning, May 3, in Union Cumberland Presbyterian Church’s Family Life Center. Several dozens graduates, dating back to 1941, mingled, reminisced and munched on snacks. Youngest graduates on hand represented the early 1960s classes.

FHS grad Davis twins study in Cuba, Spain ■


Kourtney and Kimberly Davis are identical twins with identical educations: Farragut High School (Class of 2012) and the University of Alabama, where they just finished their sophomore years. However, though both 20-yearolds took advantage of chances to study outside the United States for a semester in 2014, Kourtney, the mechanical engineering major, and Kimberly, the biology major, ended up worlds apart literally and in terms of modern conveniences. While Kimberly was studying in Spain and traveling across Europe during breaks, Kourtney was breaking new ground for CubanUnited States educational exchange as Cuba’s first mechanical engineering student from the U.S. in decades. “I was there for 97 days total, from Jan. 27 until May 4,” Kourtney said. “It went really, really well. … The professors taught on a very scholarly level. I was really impressed. I didn’t expect it to be as good as it was. The resources were slim to none, but they made the best out of it. I was there to study Spanish and mechanical engineering.” Though the trip was part of a partnership between the University of Alabama and the University of Havana, the Cuban university “did not have an engineering program.” But a school “about a half-hour away by taxi” named Cujae did. “They were celebrating their 50th year as an institution, and they had never had an American study abroad with them,” Kourtney said. “They just wanted to see if it could happen. They had been looking into it, but they didn’t know how it would work.” Overall for Kourtney, “I think that the most surprising thing was just the level of poverty that is around that entire country,” she said. However, “I would definitely said that they were one of the friendliest groups of people I had ever met,” Kourtney said. “Every single person I met, and they

found out that I was an American, just wanted to let me know that they did not hate America. They wanted to go to American and visit whatever relatives, distant or near they had. “They just wanted us feel at home. We had a bunch of people invite us over to their houses for dinner, people we had barely met before.” Kourtney was one of five United States students studying in Cuba — but the only mechanical engineering major — joining students from Chicago, Detroit, Cincinnati and Birmingham. “They were all Spanish majors,” Kourtney said.

Fasano, Brooklyn native, makes life interesting at Parkview ■

Alan Sloan

Parkview resident Gennaro "Jerry" Fasano shares information on some of his CD music collection with Geena Minihan, Parkview Activities director.


A native of Brooklyn, Gennaro “Jerry” Fasano has been making things interesting for other residents at Parkview Senior Living Community since arriving in late 2013. Providing a variety of music after meals many days of the week to several grateful residents, Fasano keeps others fascinated with stories of his almost 30 years as a New York Police Department officer, his service in World War II and the woman of his dreams, his late wife, Lucy. Labeling himself “a religious person,” Fasano, 89, added, “I love music. I feel like that singing is like praying. “I used to be with a singing

was “a divisional supply sergeant, I used to supply 17,000 troops with uniforms and equipment.” One close call came “on the first day” he arrived when “one guy came at me with a machete, and thank God for my buddy … he hit him with his rifle butt,” Fasano said. Saying the master sergeant over him often gave him a hard time, Fasano said he finally “coldcocked him, knocked him to the ground” without being court-marshaled. To follow up his respect for fellow World War II veterans, Fasano worked with Patriot Flights for years helping send veterans to Washington, D.C. “to see the World War II Memorial,” he said. See FASANO on Page 14A




group.” With most Parkview residents “going back to the Big Band time,” Fasano said whenever he plays Big Band music, “They feel that that’s reviving their youth.” Fasano was so fond of Lucy that he wrote her love letters decades into their marriage. “She was so beautiful. … I borrowed her from heaven. She was an angel,” Fasano said. “… I feel like she’s always with me. We were together more than 60 years. “My secret to a long life is a good wife.” A model in Macy’s department store and a talented athlete, Lucy died “about four years ago,” Fasano added. Saying he served in the Philippines in 1945 (U.S. Army, 6th Infantr0, Fasano added he

FHS theater shapes Best’s career ■


Though he’s currently an assistant principal at Powell Middle School, Zachary Best’s education career has been shaped, to a large degree, by his positive experiences in Farragut High School theater. That first happened as a student, Class of 1998, before Best returned to FHS as theater teacher from 2004-05 through 2009-10. Best, however, is getting serious about administrative work while seeking an education specialist doctorate degree in leadership and learning at The University of Tennessee, Chattanooga.

What’s most encouraging about Best’s future chances to become a principal was his recent acceptance into The University of Tennessee’s Leadership A c a d e m y, Best which began Friday, May 30. “It prepares talented individuals to become outstanding new school principals through a fulltime, intensive 15-month fellowship program,” a Knox County Schools press release stated.

Becoming a principal “is a chance to serve in a leadership capacity,” Best said. “I think it’s an exciting time in education. Hopefully I can use my leadership skills to help in that capacity.” While Edwin Hedgepeth selected Best to join the FHS theater staff just prior to resigning as principal, “My first day was under Michael Reynolds,” Best said about the current FHS principal. “He was a fantastic example. I definitely learned a lot from just working with him. “When I started thinking about getting into administration, I did have a chat with him and he was very encouraging,” Best added See ZACHARY on Page 14A

Love...when I know that I am loved and that I am a loving and lovable child of God, then I can have joy. When I have joy (in God and in myself), I am satisfied and trust God with everyone and everything. I have peace. When my expectations are in line with reality and I trust God with my own process and that of other people, I have patience. When Christ's peace remains in me, and patience follows peace, then kindness that is real and honest can manifest. When kindness is not outcome driven, when Christ is my heart's desire, I will be a faithful steward of what is important to Him. When I am faithfully stewarding the gifts of God and the lessons of God, trusting Him to be God over everything, the meekness of God will manifest in me as He lives in me from the place of "Thy will be done." When I live from the place of "Thy will be done," the Holy Spirit who knows the mind and will of God gifts me with temperance which is the mingling of knowledge and patience to help me manage the extremes of life and discern between good and evil.

Linda Lea, a Town small business owner, is now a published author for her book titled “Fruit of the Spirit” – The Kingdom of Heaven Within, a long awaited publication from her long-time customers. Lea will host a book-signing event at Lea’s Natural Health Solutions, LLC, 620 N. Campbell Station Road. There will be two signing and question and answer sessions starting at 4 and 7 p.m. Thursday, June 19. “My study of the fruit of the spirit started just as a study, and I felt like it just dipped me into the middle … I am a very analytical person. I need some foundation for it all, so it all started with me frustrated with the information out there,” Lea said. “As it [the study] developed, I saw that the experiences I was working with here in the office overlapped,” she added. The 96-page book is a six-yearlong project that started out with customers asking for a guidebook for her advice centered on combining the mind, body and spirit in everyday life. When Lea’s daughter wanted her writing to be more organized, she had two sources of motivation to make it happen. “Writing is just who I am,” Lea said “The neat thing I have learned is everyone has at least one story, and

It is produced primarily from natural sources like birch trees and corncobs, and after a chemical process, it is available as a food additive. In people, it has very little

effect on blood sugar. The exact opposite is true for dogs. It can drastically lower their blood sugar in as little as 30 minutes. Xylitol in dogs can cause severe hypoglycemia, seizures, liver failure, and even death. The reasons for the difference between species are still unknown. There have been no documented cases that xylitol causes problems in cats, but most veterinarians recommend cat owners avoid xylitol also. A few years ago, it was primarily sugar free gums and candies. Now, xylitol is found in many products, including some brands of: -sports drinks -chewable vitamins -sugar free granola bars -sugar free pudding -bulk powder for baking -toothpaste -chocolate -ketchup -nasal spray

Severity of clinical signs directly correlates with the size of the pet and the amount of xylitol ingested. And it doesn’t take a whole lot to make a dog sick. It is quite possible that you have several items in your house right now that contain xylitol. For you and your family, that’s not a problem. For your dog, it can really be a problem. Veterinarians want to get the word out there, because this is still relatively new information for so many pet owners. We recommend being especially cautious with pets that love ‘people food’. Food and garbage should be stored where pets cannot access it. Pets getting into purses and getting gum/candy is another common scenario. And if you feed your dog from the table, please read the label first.


definitely swayed my desire to apply. “I do miss teaching, though.” Taking classes once per week, Best’s Leadership Academy experience will feature shadowing Vine Middle School principal Cindy White, as assistant principal, for four days per week to learn from her regular routine. “It’s the opportunity to work right alongside a principal. It’s almost like an internship,” Best said. Best apparently will come full circle with John Beckett, his AP calculus teacher at FHS. “I think he’s on the docket to teach one of my classes in The Leadership Academy,” Best said. After graduating FHS, “I never thought I’d set foot in that door again,” Best said, adding his own theater experience as a student “influenced me to get into teaching. … I left high school knowing I wanted to be a teacher. … I knew I wanted to teach theater and English.” Best said his six years teaching theater at FHS “was a fantastic experience all the way around.”

about Reynolds. “With his encouragement I did start to pursue that avenue.” Best said he has “a passion for students’ learning. … I feel like I can work with teachers to facilitate” curriculum and overall teaching changes. “To make it a little bit easier than it could have been. If anything to help them understand the purpose of the change,” he added. An assistant principal at Northwest Middle School for three years after leaving FHS in 2010, Best, 33, just finished his first school year at Powell Middle. After earning a bachelor’s degree in theater at UT-Knoxville, Best earned a master’s degree in education. “I talked to some people, friends of mine, who were kind of in the same boat; they were thinking about and had started to make that move to administration,” he said. “… Their positive experience [with Leadership Academy]

Water always wins Writing in the present tense about a negative situation is flat out complaining and I try to curb my urge when I’m in the middle of bad times, but writing about a situation in the past tense and when Pam e v e r y - Young thing’s Make it back to normal, Fun! j u s t makes for a good story. With that, I have to tell you what happened. There’s a lesson to learn from every negative situation, and I make it my life’s work to get the lessons so I don’t have to repeat situations with a different cast and crew. For example, I learned from being in a marriage that was difficult, you can’t make a person who’s not happy be happy. The second time around, I married someone who was already happy! Now for my most recent lesson: Water always wins. We live in the state of Washington where we get a lot of rain. I happen to love rain (when it stays outside) and I wouldn’t want to live anywhere else in the world except maybe Positano, Italy. We built our home in Woodland, Washington, eleven years ago and we have enjoyed its cozy, lodge-like feel. We work out of our offices which are in our basement and about five years ago we discovered a minor leak in an insignificant place in the basement and on the concrete floor about 40 feet from our offices. After a hard rain, my husband Terry, would crawl back to “the place” and come out with a report we called the Paper Towel Report. “Well?’ “Two paper towels.” “Oh, good! No big deal.” That conversation took place about six times through each rainy season, which, in Washington, lasts from October to June. However this January something changed. There was a huge rain storm that carried on throughout the night and I could hardly sleep guessing what the towel count would be. Terry headed to the basement the first thing the next morning and I was pleasantly surprised to hear him say, “One.” One towel, wow! I was ecstatic as I fixed breakfast. I try to be in my office by nine and as I headed for my desk, I was greeted with a sound we Washingtonians are very familiar with, squish, squish, squish. My office was flooded! So much for the Paper Towel Report! Before I could get to my

husband, I heard him say a few really bad words and I knew that his office was flooded too! If you’ve ever had a flood in your home, you know what has to be done if you plan to stay in the residence afterward. Our carpeting had to be ripped up (it was salvageable when it dried out) and the padding discarded and replaced, and then there were the walls. Sheet rock had to be replaced and after it was ripped off, the wood frame had to be dried out. There are flood experts that deal with this exact problem and they placed huge heaters that look and sound like Boeing jet engines. 24/7 the monster fans blew hot air in the flooded areas until the wet wood and carpet were completely dry. The sound was unbearable and we had to move our businesses upstairs. The experts also used huge dehumidifiers in each room that pull the moister out of the air and any of the people who live in the home. (I couldn’t believe how thirsty I was all the time, until I realized I was being dehumidified!) I truly think if it had taken more than the two weeks it took

to dry the place out, we would look like a couple of California raisins. Now it’s one thing to deal with the result of a flood, but one also has to find the cause. Another team of experts came with a backhoe and dug up the yard and the dirt along one side of our house. All the pipe had to be replaced (it was broken because of a freeze we’d had earlier) with a promise that we won’t even have to check on the paper towel place. Two months from the squish, squish, squish sound, I am once again in my cozy office (I even took the opportunity to repaint) happy to know water always wins, but with new piping and several thousand dollars later, I’ll be staying dry for a very long time.

Moores happy with Studio 135 Farragut location ■

Jessica Moore, Studio 351 co-owner and stylist, applies her skills to the hair of customer Kathryn Grabenstein.


Studio 135 has been open since Feb. 1 and business is great, said Kevin Moore, who co-owns the hair salon with his wife, Jessica Moore. “Business is picking up every month, getting busier and busier,” Kevin Moore added. “”We built faster than I thought we would with employees and clients,” Jessica Moore said. “It’s a dream come true.” The Moores’ salon, 135 West End Ave in West End Shopping Center, offers hair services to men, women and children. While it has been at West End Center for only three months, Jessica has been a stylist in the Knoxville area for 15 years. “I’ve been coming to her since I was 8,” customer Kathryn

Tammy Cheek

Grabenstein said. Kevin Moore said he opened the business for his wife. “My wife’s so amazing,” he said. “She’s so talented. “I felt she would do really well if she had a nice, high-end salon, something fresh and new in the Farragut area.” “I love it,” Jessica Moore said. “I never had somebody believe in me that much. [Kevin has] been my number one cheerleader.” After the couple married last summer, Kevin Moore’s father saw the salon industry as a wise business investment, as well, and fronted the Moores the capital to start Studio 135. Kevin Moore, with his commercial real estate and interior improvement experience, transformed the space into a high-end boutique. In addition to Jessica, stylists include, Pam McCoy, Jake

Galvan and Brent Wilkins. “Sadly, Kevin’s dad, who invested in the salon, passed away in November before the salon opened,” McCoy said. “Jessica, Kevin and the entire Studio 135 family are dedicated to honoring his memory by providing extraordinary, professional salon services and a warm friendly environment for the residents of Farragut and the surrounding area.” Kevin Moore said Studio 135 offers everything from haircuts and color services to hair extensions, keratin smoothing treatments, perms and styling services. It sells high-end hair products such as Redken, Pureology and Moroccan Oil. The salon is looking to add two more stylists, Kevin Moore added.
