Kindergarten Tennova honors heritage days to be lengthened ■


Adding 105 minutes to kindergarten days in all Knox County Schools, beginning in the 2012-13 school year, has been sold as vital toward improving children’s skills, notably literacy, while being “cost neutral.” All KCS kindergartens will be on the same schedule as first- through fifthgrades, with full days running from 7:45 a.m. to 2:45 p.m. Julia Craze, outgoing Farragut Primary School principal, had roughly 340 kindergarten students in 17 classes last year. “Children these days are different these days than children were even ten years ago,” Craze said. “They come with more knowledge. More of them have had pre-school experience. They’re exposed to more technology. “It gives the teachers an opportunity to do more in-depth instruction,” she added. “Now, there’s a lot to pack into a day … physical education or art or music. And then 30 minutes of lunch.” Upon arriving at day care after 1 p.m., Craze said “some of them are picked up at 6 o’clock and they never stop. ... The majority, they don’t wear out. They’re amazing.” “People move into the area and wonder why we dismiss at 1 o’clock,” Craze added. Karen Carson, District 5 Knox County Board of Education representative (Farragut area), voted in favor of the extended time. “What we’re finding is that here was a certain percentage where we then extended the day, I think it was 25 percent, for intervention because they were that far behind,” she said. Of the remaining 75 percent, “More than half of those were going to afterschool care” at the school, Carson said. Moreover, extended time would become a reality “without any real, measurable increase in dollars because the teachers are still on contract for that time.” Carson did point to “follow-up research” studying the effects of increased kindergarten days and concluding “‘Well, maybe the impact wasn’t as strong as we thought.’ I didn’t see anything that said it was negative.” Based on “the feedback that I got,” Carson said most parents of kindergartenage children in her district were “predominantly positive” to increased time. Dr. Jim McIntyre, KCS superintendent, said the decision “really emanated from our schools,” adding that Hardin Valley Elementary had a couple of kindergarten teachers “come to the school board meeting a few weeks back to say, ‘We’re so glad that you’re doing this because this is something we have been talking with our principal [Tod Evans] … we need more time with our kids,’” he said. “We’re leaving almost 300 instructional school hours on the table each year for every kindergarten student,” McIntyre added. McIntyre pointed out one negative perSee KINDERGARTEN on Page 6A

Final land use meeting June 26 ■

Heather Beck/farragutpress

Turkey Creek Medical Center chaplain Brad Hood celebrates the installation of two stained glass windows in the east and west lobbies of the Parkside Drive hospital. The windows — originally installed at East Tennessee Baptist Hospital in July 1962 — were placed in Turkey Creek Medical Center Saturday, June 2. Hood said the stained glass windows, which depict Jesus with Mary and Martha and Jesus in the Garden of Gethsemane, were important connections to Tennova’s spiritual heritage through both the Baptist and Mercy hospital systems. “I remember how the light would come into that Chapel at Baptist through these windows, and I remember how that made me feel. Then, all of a sudden last week, here they were. I still catch myself looking at them like a favorite old quilt from a grandmother,” Hood said. The displays were installed by studio furniture maker Scott DeWaard, and made possible through a contribution from Mercy Foundation to maintain the history and heritage of Baptist Health System. Turkey Creek’s windows originally were dedicated to Mr. and Mrs. C.R. Wallace and Mr. and Mrs. Doyle Wallace, given by Mr. and Mrs. Ray Bradley and Mr. and Mrs. John Wallace.


Farragut will hold its next — and likely last — public meeting for the Town’s comprehensive land use plan at 6 p.m., Tuesday, June 26. “It’s going to be an open house, so it’ll probably be more of a Q-and-A and a walk around. We’ll probably have a lot of visuals set up and allow some more personal interaction with Winston [Associates],” said assistant Town administrator Gary Palmer. The meeting will be set up as an open house, with a brief presentation beginning at 7 p.m. Winston Associates, the Town’s consultant to construct the plan, will present a summary of input from previous public meetings and focus groups. Those meetings covered topics as varied as historic preservation, land use, a Town center or downtown district and aging shopping centers. “Winston is going to highlight what they took back and analyzed and digested about what we did May 8,” at the previous focus groups and public meeting, Palmer said. They’ll set forth ideas they’ve come up with following citizen feedback. “I think it will be talking more but also getting people’s direct input ... I get the sense it will be more of a relaxed atmosphere,” he added. During the meeting, Winston Associates will use three-dimensional renderings of various concepts and will allow event attendees to provide feedback on those concepts, as well as other questions, using See LAND USE on Page 6A

Northshore/Choto roundabout planned ■


Knox County is planning to make a change to the Northshore Drive and Choto Road intersection by installing a roundabout. “The roundabout is going to be safer; it’s going to operate better from an efficiency standpoint with less delay both now and 10 years out,” said Knox County engineering spokesman Jim Snowden. The intersection already has seen changes this year as development at The Markets at Choto has gone underway, including lowering the grade of Northshore, widening the road and installing turn lanes. Snowden said the roundabout would be similar to that at Northshore and Concord Road — a single lane roundabout — with a price tag of about $500,000. “There were about 40 people who attended last night,” Snowden said of a public meeting held at Farragut Town Hall

Traffic on Northshore Drive at Choto Road speeds along Friday, June 8.

June 4, “and they were all in favor of the proposal as presented. Everybody had really good comments and they feel like we’re addressing the right issues and are going to make the intersection safer.” According to Snowden, a roundabout was the best of multiple options, including converting the intersection to a four-way

stop or installing a traffic signal. “From a safety and capacity standpoint, everything pointed to the roundabout being the better solution,” Snowden said. John Huber’s Markets at Choto project would have required the intersection to See CHOTO on Page 6A

Grigsby Chapel, ‘history’ top citizen concerns ■

Committee should “ignore all the chaff you’ve been talking about the past year” and “focus on business incubation and startups.” “Think about what I said, and go on with our Town,” Hill said.


Two Farragut citizens informed Farragut’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen about issues in their subdivisions, streets and the Town in general Thursday evening, May 24, during the Board meeting’s “Citizen’s Forum” comment time. Mul Wyman took issue with traffic along Grigsby Chapel Road, which he said was too heavy and too fast. “That section of Grigsby Chapel is at capacity,” Wyman — a Wyndham Hall resident — said, specifically referring to GCR between Campbell Station and Fretz roads. He presented TDOT data estimating Grigsby Chapel had an average weekday traffic count of 15,596 in 2011. “That’s more than I-75 in LaFollette” on a per lane basis, Wyman said. TDOT has estimated 28,000 vehicles a day travel that section of Interstate, which Wyman said would average out to 7,000 vehicles per lane. On Grigsby Chapel, which has two drive lanes, about 8,000 vehicles travel each lane per weekday. “No wonder those traffic calming islands are getting boogered up,” Alderman Bob Markli said. He asked the Board to classify Grigsby Chapel as a “major collector” street, which are supposed to carry “slow to moderate traffic speeds and volumes.” GCR from Campbell Station to Fretz currently is classified as a minor arterial, which accommodates higher traffic speeds and volumes. Road classifications reflect the reality of how streets are used. “It has become a de facto arterial. Everybody’s just got in the habit of cutting through,” Markli said. Wyman also asked the Board to reduce the speed limit on Grigsby Chapel from 40 to 35 miles per hour, and to post signs that warn motorists they’re entering a residential area and to slow down. Finally, he asked for an additional right turn lane at the GCR/CSR intersection to deal with Farragut Primary School morning traffic. “I know that’s a high dollar item,” he said. Bob Hill, a Belleaire resident, presented the Board with a laundry list of its recent discussions and work items with which he did — or did not — agree. “History is not created by sprinkling magic angel dust and

watering it,” he told the Board. “You’ve got to wait a while to get history. That’s what it means.” However, Hill said a priority should be saving the historic Campbell Station Inn, which sits on property for sale at the corner of Campbell Station and Kingston Pike. “It will never succeed in being anything but what it is unless the public has access to it,” Hill said. Hill told the Board he was against cutting Knoxville Area Transit’s $40,000 funding and against giving more money to the schools. The Board later approved both of those things. He was “unalterably opposed” to giving money to Farragut Business Alliance. “They don’t need to come to the government for anything,” he said. “I know that’s falling on deaf ears, but I don’t like it,” he added.

presstalk • We strongly support the community center as defined in the recent strategic planning sessions. A true community center would provide a venue for community events, gatherings, the arts, and education. It should also anchor the beginning of a better downtown central business district with a mix of housing, shopping, and dining. Therefore, a location near Kingston Pike and Concord Road would be ideal. Such a taxpayer investment combined with reworking Kingston Pike to put utilities underground, widen sidewalks, and upgrade signage, landscaping, and lighting would stimulate replacement or redevelopment of vacant buildings by simply making the area attractive and convenient to the Community Center facility. Public investment in a new, well conceived community center and a pedestrian friendly, attractive section of Kingston Pike must be combined with progressive zoning changes to invite mixed-use development around the community center. These bold steps should attract investors to tear down abandoned, obsolete box stores to create downtown spaces that would have the look and feel of the Renaissance Center. Mixed-use development typically endures much longer than simple retail and adapts to changing needs. The pace of the private development will depend upon the economic conditions following the public investments and may require some patience. We strongly oppose investing public money to remodel an abandoned grocery store to create a Senior Center with limited capacity and function and falsely labeling it as the Community Center. A poorly conceived adaptive reuse of a low end retail building will likely further diminish the attractiveness of the downtown area. We support a comprehensive community center supporting our seniors and all other age groups in the town. • Using quick farmer’s math, $10M (~$8M park expansion and ~$2M community center as reported in this paper last week) and 20,000 Town of Farragut residents (rounded down from 2010 census of 20,676) equates to about $500 investment (expendi-


671-TALK ture/debt) per citizen, about $2,000 for a family of four. Now that is starting to look like “real money” in terms of capital expenditures, which also does not include future adjustments for inflation and the current challenges in the bond market! Point being is that there needs to be much more due diligence completed with these recreational initiatives prior to abandoning a fiscal conservative budgetary philosophy. This should be completed especially in terms of the size of our community’s budget and with the various public and private recreational assets located within minutes inside and/or near the town. • REALLY??? $8,000,000 for more park space??? First, we want to spend $750,000 for new “historic” lighting on Campbell Station Road, then we want to spend another $500,000 for “decorative” lighting on Concord Road, and now we want to spend $8,000,000 for more trails and tennis courts, and playgrounds, and more fields, and a pond (remind you that we are surrounded by one big pond), and Frisbee golf, but yet building or creating a Community Center for the people costs too much? Does Farragut have so much money they just don’t know what to do with it? We, the PEOPLE of Farragut, need a Community Center for the PEOPLE of Farragut, NOT more walking trails and playgrounds. Farragut already has five parks that I can name off the top of my head, Campbell Station, Bob Leonard, McFee, Anchor, and Concord. Is this not enough parks with walking trails and playgrounds? That $8,000,000 would go a great way to building a Community Center in this town, or better yet, making use of one of the four BIG EMPTY storefronts within a mile of each other that sit vacant as an eye sore along Kingston Pike. The old Kroger building is a perfect location and size for a community center for this town. Community centers or jumping recreation centers are public locations where members of a community tend to gather for group activities, social support, public information, and other

purposes. They may sometimes be open for the whole community or for a specialized group within the greater community. It is in the center of town and has space for everyone for their different activities. When did the people of Farragut get to vote on this — why does BOMA always get to decide when and where money in this town is spent? When do the people get a say for what WE want, and not the board? Editor’s Note: The parks along Northshore Drive are not in the town of Farragut. They are operated by Knox County. Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen meetings are open to the public; the Board meets the second and fourth Thursday of each month. • Thank you to the town of Farragut for giving equal shares of money to ALL the Knox County high schools where Farragut students are zoned for [sic]. Last week’s comments about giving a proportional amount to [Hardin Valley Academy] is ridiculous when it is a part of the town’s zoning. “Doesn’t seem fair” can be used in more ways than one! • I called last week regarding the big rig trucks and did not see the [presstalk] in today’s ’press, and I’m going to see if this one gets in next week’s paper. I personally traveled the Interstates 32 years back and forth to work and know from experience how these truck drivers operate. And there is nothing more scary [sic] than seeing one right on your bumper ... . Also, if a trucker rear-ends someone and causes a disability or kills someone, their CDL should be permanently revoked. And the company also should be sued and put out of business. Point made. • I’m calling about the community center. I believe we, instead of the community center where the Food City is, I believe we need a Home Depot or a Lowe’s. We really need a hardware store here in the town of Farragut. Thank you. • Yes, I am calling to offer my opinion. Many readers seem to question the goings-on at Town Hall and why our Town officials do the things they do. First were the handy dandy, print as you go, moneymaker ticket cameras.

Then there was the not-so-calm traffic calming islands. And most recently, the hysterical historical lighting. I think we ought to give our Town officials a break. Did you ever think that maybe they keep coming up with these harebrained schemes just to give us readers reasons to call into presstalk, or to give the fine journalists here at the paper topics to write about? Just a point to ponder. • In response to the trucker regarding he drove a truck for 25 years with no accidents, I’m sure you’re the only one. I worked for 32 years traveling the Interstate and from what I saw, I stayed out of the trucks’ way. They all drove too fast trying to get their products on time or to get that extra dollar if they’re early. Everyone knows they pay taxes to use the roads ... . Not sure where all the tax dollars are going, certainly not for maintaining the roads. And as for Walmart, I’m sure they could manage their conglomerate with smaller trucks and still be rich. Point made. • I want to make an impassioned plea to the people that have been dumping trash in my dumpster. I’m required by law to have a dumpster behind my store. It costs me $400 a month, plus with all the people that have been dumping in it, I’ve had to pay an extra $150 a week to have extra trips made to have it picked up. And it’s just driving me crazy. That’s another $600 and I’m just a small business owner. We’re not a corporation, we’re not a franchise, and I’ve talked to the police; I’ve talked to Farragut city hall and nobody seems to be able to stop it. And if I could just get people to realize how much money it costs me, maybe I could get them to take it to the dump. Thank you. • I really have to express my disappointment with Target for their decision to donate $120,000 in cash to promote the legalization of homosexual marriage. Both they and Home Depot have now decided it’s more important to be politically correct than remain neutral on social and religious issues. As for me, as long as these policies are in effect, I’ll be thinking twice before I contribute another dollar to either one of them. Maybe

everyone should think twice about what’s morally important to them before blindly supporting businesses with agendas such as these.

Knox ProCorps professionals bring water to poor ■


Bruce Giles is aboard a Farragut area humanitarian train of engineers, consulting firm executives and utility technicians — among many professions — that currently are focused on a tiny Guatemalan village. Giles, First Utility District general manager, is among a few dozen Knox ProCorps volunteers, which formed in October 2011, identifying and then looking to alleviate fresh water availability problems for the extremely poor. Giles presented an overview of the group’s work in the Ulpan Valley in Guatemala during FUD’s board meeting Tuesday, May 22. “The beauty of the project is we teach them how to operate the entire system,” Giles said. He and other First Utility employees — including Troy Wedekind, Gary Massey and Andy Jackson — laid three miles of water line, installed two water tanks, put 35 spigots in villages and homes and provided access to clean mountain spring water to more than 600 people. The group was in Guatemala April 28-May 5. The crew carried construction materials on their backs, dug pipelines by hand and installed everything using manual labor. “It’s just a smaller version of what we do here,” Giles told FUD’s board. With neither electricity nor sanitation in the village, “the mortality rate for children before the age of five is about 50 percent right now,” Giles said prior to the trip at a ProCorps meeting at Concord Yacht Club Thursday evening, March 29. “What we’re trying to do is

keep women from walking two or three hours. The way these villages are laid out, they can come to a central place and walk 200 yards as opposed to walking three hours down the side of a mountain,” Giles added. The new system sends water to a series of outdoor “threebasin sinks, and we try to situate one of those, centrally located between about eight to 10 homes” in the village, said Mark McKinney, an engineer with Cannon & Cannon, Inc. and ProCorps Leadership Team member with Giles and six others. In addition to personal costs of a six- to eight-day stay, Giles said the project’s cost is “about

$6,000.” According to Giles, those costs were paid by fundraising members, and construction supplies were brought in from a city in the Ulpan Valley region. Future ProCorps projects will have as much to do with alleviating similar water problems for East Tennessee’s and Appalachia’s poorest areas as it does internationally, McKinney told the gathering at Concord Yacht Club. Saying many East Tennessee wells are contaminated, McKinney added, “There’s parts of Appalachia you can drive into that don’t honestly look that much different” than the Ulpan Valley. About volunteering, “I guarantee that you’ll be changed in the process, and that you’ll change other people’s lives,” said McKinney — who along with wife, Katie, and their four children — are moving to the Semesche Valley for one year. McKinney will monitor the completed water system while rendering comprehensive care to the village. – Staff writer Heather Beck contributed to this story

to begin the approval process. A land use plan is designed to help Farragut map how it wants land to develop and redevelop in the future. It’s not the same as zoning. “A land use plan gives us direction for future land use development. In my mind, it’s a quasi-legal document which the planning commission can use as a decision basis for development,” Palmer said.

this just because I think they need an extended day. I think they’re ready for it,” she said. A longer day also provides “transportation convenience for the parents,” Maier said. “Everybody can ride the bus home together if you have older siblings.”

“The reason we stepped up the process a little quicker is because not knowing when his 50 percent might come about — that may be years from now in the economy we’re in,” Snowden said. “We didn’t feel we could necessarily wait for that; we felt there was enough of a safety con-

Town House Interiors relocates ■


Town House Interiors has recently relocated from Farragut to Turkey Creek, and owner Janice Moore said the move comes with the same personal service as always, but a few new furniture lines. “We wanted to move to a more vibrant shopping district that’s more like a neighborhood,” Moore said. Town House relocated from Patriot’s Corner shopping center to 11071 Parkside Drive in April. Town House offers services ranging from consulting help to designing and drawing plans, from reupholstery to custom window treatments to custom framing. The store also sells furniture, lighting, wall coverings, artwork and accessories. “We try to work as a team. I try to find out what people want their home to be and I help them get there,” Moore said of her relationship with customers. “We do everything a custom workroom can make, which is pretty much everything,” she added. According to Moore, customers will still see customized, personal attention, but might

notice a few new product lines. New furniture lines include an Amish-made line of wooden furniture as well as a line of recliners and chairs with ottomans from Norway. “We have added a beautiful line of tea towels and guest towels; we have lotions, hand care products, jewelry,” Moore said. Moore said Town House mostly deals with residential, light commercial and some commercial projects, in addition to renovations and remodeling. The store’s designers all have bachelor’s degrees in interior design and are licensed by the state. According to Moore, hiring professional designers can help prevent mistakes and save money. “If they buy a pre-drawn [house] plan, I can customize it just for them. We can move walls around on paper, change door swings, fix the kitchen design, fix the bathroom, and really customize it without wasting any money. “I always say paper is cheap, and we can fix it on paper first,” Moore said. “It’s really important to have everything all worked out ...

think it’s important to be professional,” she added. Town House provides a different process than might be found in some “big box” stores, Moore said. “Absolutely the personal service and just caring about how everything comes together; we care about the look and the function, and of course we want to stay within what the client is comfortable spending. “It’s all about taking pride in our work and taking care of our clients. We want them to be happy and we want them to come back and tell their friends,” Moore said.

Moose’s Softball Co-ed League team goes 4-0 to win tourney


Nitty Gritty co-ed softball has come a long way in seven seasons. For that matter, this town of Farragut Co-ed Softball League team came a long way during the league’s season-ending tournament. With a 4-2-1 record season record, “Overall we were a No. 5 seed, and on our side of the tournament bracket we were a No. 3

seed,” said Wayne Moose, whose Nitty Gritty team went 4-0 and captured the tourney title Thursday night, June 7. Scoring 14 runs during its first two at-bats, Nitty Gritty — defending spring tournament champs — beat Ed Financial 2615 in the championship game on Mayor Bob Leonard Park’s Lower Field. “I knew we could do it,” said Moose, whose team earned a spot in the championship game with a 14-11 victory against

Shake N Bake on MBL’s Upper Field earlier that evening. “We’ve got the best defense out here,” Moose added. “If we hit the ball we’ll beat anybody.” Nitty Gritty opened tourney play with a victory against Al’s Home Improvement May 31, then beat TPS3, LLC in Thursday evening’s quarterfinal round. Moose said this was his team’s second tournament title (combining spring and fall seasons) since joining Town’s Co-ed League in 2006.

In addition to winning the 2011 spring tourney title, Moose said Nitty Gritty also finished No. 2 during fall 2010 season. “We’ve come a long way since our first season; actually, our first season, we went 0-7,” Moose said. Other NG players contributing were Penny Moose, Wayne’s wife; Abbie Duncan, Maurice Warren, Kelly Jenkins, Trey Crabtree, Tim Martin, Jim Roche, Courtney Humphreys, Stephanie Bailey, Chris Stafford, Justin Disney and Brittany James.

Members of All-Region 2-AAA boys soccer second team are Fletcher Eckern of Farragut, Chris Gallaher of Hardin Valley Academy and Mark Mishu of Knoxville Catholic.

When friends tried to hype Raymond Warner’s home-run hitting prowess, this co-ed softball league power-hitting left fielder turned humble. Humble despite his dramatic seventh inning walk-off solo home run for Ed Financial, clearing the left field fence at Mayor Bob Leonard Park Lower Field as the winning blow Thursday evening, June 7. “I guess I’ve hit three or four this year,” said Warner moments after his laser beam blast, with two outs, lifted EF to an 11-10 win against The Creek in town of Farragut Co-ed Softball League Tournament semifinal action. Ed Financial, East Division regular season champion at 6-1, earned a first-round tourney bye then defeated The Chugglers earlier Thursday evening in quarterfinal play. The Creek (8-2 overall) bat-

Town is ‘Sciensational’ Area children continue education at town workshop


Evan Johnson, age 7, proudly displayed a “chopper” he built while eagerly looking ahead to other challenges. “On the last day I’m going to make my own creation of these things,” said Evan, one of 12 Farragut area children ages 7 to 12 participating in town of Farragut’s annual Sciensational Workshop for Kids June 4-8 in Town Hall’s community room. Evan and the other children used an Engino plastic building kit, which included a 3-volt geared motor, to produce miniature versions of choppers, vehicles, robots, buildings, tricycles and swings, among other things. The motor powered a movable radar survey or the children built. The weeklong class, where the children learn to make 20 different models, allows them “to use their imagination and be creative. And also it’s kind of continuing their education into the summer and not just ending with the school year,” said Lauren Cox, Town’s program and special events coordinator. “We have been doing this since 2007.” “I practiced these at home and it was a little more difficult than I

expected it to be,” said class teacher Jenna Harness, a recently certified elementary teacher chosen by Sciensational Workshops for Kids, Inc. Parents were ready to spend $145 per child for the weeklong class “Mainly just for them to learn something over the summer, in addition to playing,” said Deanna Heathcott, whose sons, Adison, 12, and Mason, 9, participated. “Just for the experience.” Adison, a rising eighth-grader at West Valley Middle School, said about the class, “Just kind of like, how you can do your own creativity, and just kind of express what you want to make by yourself without having any restrictions to anything.” Harness said the children “walked in expecting it to be like Legos, but found out really fast it was a little bit more difficult than Legos is. “The first project we did was a small house, and we built it step by step together,” Harness added. “Once they completed that one I let them go on to the next one and work on their own on it, or with a partner, whichever one they wanted to do and thought was easiest for them.” Other participants were Grace Garren, Austin Bloyd, Joe Gray, Ben Darden, Sam Kittrell, Kevin Wang, Michael Davis, Aaron Shagon and Will Lowder. Also built on Monday, “We did a defense car, we did a swing and a tricycle,” Harness said. “Today

‘Impy’ Scholarship multiplies thanks to uncle, HVA gifts


A horrible first anniversary is less than two months away, but the late Scott “Impy” Impellizeri might well be looking down with joy on how his parents, a pair of uncles and Scott Impellizeri his former high school have carried on what “Impy” is all about. “Integrity, Mentor,

Perseverance and Youthful Exuberance” are qualities family members have highlighted about Scott, a Hardin Valley Academy 2011 graduate killed in a car accident Aug. 7, 2011, that inspired them to begin an annual scholarship in his name. Inaugural Scott Impellizeri Memorial Scholarship, originally intended to award $1,000 to an HVA Class of 2012 graduate “who possesses the same qualities as Scott,” was a much bigger success than planned according to Scott’s mother, Tracy Impellizeri. More than eight times bigger. See SCHOLARSHIP on Page 4B

Lawhon part of quartet U.S. champs


In the sixth grade at Farragut Middle School, Steven Lawhon decided the saxophone would be his musical instrument of choice “because I thought it was cool.” Almost 10 years later, Lawhon discovered just how cool: being 25 percent of a saxophone quartet winning a prestigious contest among some of the nation’s top young talent, college age and above.

Scholarship From page 2B

“The donations we received far exceeded what we expected to raise, and we awarded a $1,000 scholarship to each of the eight students who applied,” Tracy said. Tracy said she and husband, John, knew some of the applicants but wanted the selection to be impartial, so “we took those eight applications and sent them to my brother [Tim Adams] and John’s brother [Ken Impellizeri] in California. “My brother texted me and said … ‘can we give $1,000 to all eight?’” Tracy added while fighting back tears. “He said, ‘if I give $5,000 will give the remaining $3,000?’ “Ken also made a donation to the scholarship,” Tracy added. “We just received so many donations from the community and our family and friends. We want to thank the community for their donations, that helped a lot. We are grateful for everybody.” McCall Beckler, one of the eight HVA Class of 2012 scholarship

recipients, will enroll at The University of Tennessee this fall. “Scott was always just a really good friend to me, and just to be able to apply for something like that was a really great honor,” Beckler said. Beckler labeled Tracy and John “as probably one of the most supportive set of parents that I’ve ever met. [Scott] always talked about them.” Earning the Humanitarian Award for outstanding service as a peer tutor at HVA in 2011, “Scott had just graduated from Hardin Valley Academy and was preparing to go to Middle Tennessee State University at the end of August,” Tracy said. “He was going to major in criminal justice.” “Scott was an amazing person,” his mother added. “He loved helping others and was involved with groups such as Special Olympics. He was a mentor and his friends looked up to him.” Following the tragedy, “Within a month we thought about doing the scholarship and thought that would be a good way to keep Scott’s memory alive,” Tracy said.

The 2012 Graduates of The Episcopal School of Knoxville are, front row from left, Zachary Taylor, Ian Greeley, Lauren Weller, Michaela Allen, Sarah Feddersen, Lauren Hager, Sydney Hager, Eva James, Tyler Feddersen and Asad Jooma.

Kennel cough Contagious disease calls for antibiotics, observation Q: We recently adopted a puppy from the shelter, and they sent “Missy” home on antibiotics for kennel cough. What is kennel cough? She is not really coughing, so do I need to finish the antibiotics? - Lisa, Farragut A : ‘Kennel Cough’ is the common name for tracheobronchitis, a contagious dis- Stephanie ease that is Myers caused by Ask several difthe Vet f e r e n t viruses, m o s t notably Bordetella and bacteria. The disease causes a dry hacking cough that can last for several weeks. It is typically mild, and dogs usually feel well, do not have fevers, and have normal appetites. However, in very young, very old, or in animals with depressed immune systems, it can be more serious and progress to pneumonia. Missy certainly could have

‘Hands-on’ fun means no tests, no grades at FHS Science Camp ■

been exposed to kennel cough at the animal shelter, but she could have also been exposed before she arrived there. The disease is fairly contagious, and the virus particles are aerosolized each time the dog coughs. Kennel cough is easily spread anywhere there is a large group of dogs together, but luckily the disease is generally selflimiting. Antibiotics are used to combat the bacterial portion of this disease, but the viral component must run its course. Cough suppressants can be used if coughing is severe and/or the pet is having difficulty resting. There is a vaccine available to help prevent dogs from contracting kennel cough, but it will not help if your dog is already sick. If you plan on taking Missy to the park, boarding kennels, or the groomer in the future, you should have her vaccinated later, when she is feeling better. And so yes, please finish the antibiotics that have been started. If Missy starts to feel poorly, has a fever, or stops eating, please have her examined again.

said Lawhon, a rising IU senior whose quartet split $10,500 in total prize money. “We heard some of the other groups, they were phenomenal. We were not expecting this at all.” Perhaps it’s less surprising considering that Jacobs School, roughly 1,600 students, “is one of the nation's top one or two music schools in the country,” Lawhon said.

Nancy Pevey, associate professor of Mathematics at Pellissippi State, is recipient of Teaching Excellence Award presented by Tennessee Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges.

Pevey receives Teaching Excellence Award Nancy Pevey still uses a document camera in her classroom. She admits to telling some “pretty corny” math jokes. She makes errors while working sample math problems for her students — usually on purpose. Pevey, an associate professor of Mathematics at Pellissippi State Community College, has a stockpile of low-tech tricks stashed up her sleeve, all of them used to make math easier for her students to learn. Those techniques are some of the reasons she recently was recognized with a statewide education honor: the Teaching Excellence Award, presented by the Tennessee Mathematical Association of Two-Year Colleges. Pevey, originally from Starkville, Miss., has been teaching math full time at Pellissippi State since 2000. She also has taught middle and high schoolers, and she was a teacher at Bearden and Northwest middle schools before the

Knoxville-Knox County systems consolidated. For the veteran faculty member, making math easier for her students to learn is all about interaction. That’s why Pevey chooses to work math problems by hand on the document camera, a modernized overhead projector. Though she certainly has access to newer tools such as PowerPoint presentations, she believes they just can’t replace the give-and-take of talking through a math solution with her students. “Writing out the math problems on the document camera makes it fresh every time,” Pevey said. “I like to do more than just hit the ‘go’ button. If I happen to think of a better example that addresses a student’s question, I can write it out as soon as I think of it. “I’d call my classes ‘interactive lectures.’ Students solve the math

Lawhon’s Barkada Quartet “gets to tour the Midwest, and next July and August we get to tour in Italy,” he said. “It's all paid by Fischoff.” Lawhon said the prize money “will also help us make a website or maybe record a CD, just to get our name out there.” A 2009 Farragut High School graduate looking to fulfill a dream of playing for a prestigious orchestra, Lawhon was a saxophone player in FHS Admirals Marching Band and in the school’s symphonic band all four years. Farragut schools “was definitely

where I started my saxophone career,” Lawhon said. At FMS, “Larry Danner was my middle school band director, and Ron Rogers was the Farragut [High] band director. They were definitely very influential people in my musical career.” Bigger still, “Jay Romines, who is a saxophone professor at The University of Tennessee and the band director at Knoxville Catholic, he’s the one who really got me into saxophone,” Lawhon said. “He’s the biggest influential person.”

awesome observers,” Fraser told the children, in grades third through fifth, during the Thursday, June 7, “marine ecology” session of inaugural Farragut High School Science Summer Camp for grades third through eighth, held MondayFriday, June 4-8, in FHS Science Lab. “The children are loving it, these are hands-on activities. And for the most part, they haven’t done these activities” during the regular school year, said Jane Skinner, science lab and technology coordinator, about the camp, which drew 36 Farragut and Knox County students. In addition to the 18 in grades 3-5 during three-hour morning sessions, 18 more in grades 6-8 participated in three-hour afternoon sessions. “The whole purpose of this camp is to get them excited about doing science and perhaps consider it as a major once they get to high school,” Skinner said. “We spent two full days outside, Tuesday and Wednesday.” For the younger campers, Thursday also included “putting their solar cars together so we run them,” Skinner said. “Tuesday we stayed on campus and did a lot of tree identification and collecting; we did like a scavenger hunt. On Wednesday we actually went down to Turkey Creek, there was a little area that we were able to get into to look at the bio-diversity of the creek,” Skinner added. “We went down to the stream and collected critters and counted them and did a determination of the quality of the stream based on the critters that were found.” “Monday was DNA day, we did activities with DNA,” Skinner added. “They actually extracted some DNA and put them in a necklace that some of the ele-

academy, the camp featured Skinner among “seven or eight” FHS science faculty contributing, she said. Rising juniors and seniors in the school’s Science academy volunteered and are “getting community service hours for helping out,” Skinner said.

Root of evil is illiteracy, Common Good Golf Classic Tierney tells Sunset Rotary

Alan Sloan/farragutpress

Angie Tierney, executive director of Children’s Reading Foundation of Knox County, advocates her message in sign during Turkey Creek Sunset Rotary Club’s weekly meeting Tuesday evening, May 29, in Faith Lutheran Church Worship Center. Among her audience is Ed Engel, left, Sunset Rotary president, and Adam Starkey, visiting Rotarian from West Knox Rotary Club.


The root of all evil — in terms of crime, unemployment and poverty in Knox County — isn’t money. It’s the inability to read. That’s according to Angie Tierney, executive director of The Children’s Reading Foundation of Knox County, who spoke to Turkey Creek Sunset Rotary Club Tuesday, May 29, in Faith Lutheran Church Worship Center and backed up her “root of evil” claim with statistics. “Seventy-five percent of the criminals in jail read on a sixthgrade level,” said Tierney, whose Knox County Foundation branch advocates a national call for parents and other relatives to spend “20 minutes a day reading to their children” toward building much greater Knox literacy rates in the coming decades. “Fifty-three percent of our Knox County children today are not proficient in reading at the end of the third grade,” Tierney said. “Many of them are one to three years behind.” By fourth grade, “You are expected to read to learn. … If you can’t read, you can’t learn.” Tierney said fourth-grade

children “feel horrible deep, deep down inside” when failing to exhibit proficient reading skills when called upon in front of classmates. “They’re able to read about every third word.” As a result, “They learn to act out ... ‘I’m going to be funny,’” to cover reading problems, Tierney added. “So there comes your disciplinary problem.” “So you drop out,” leading to “crime, drugs. Seventy-five percent of third-graders who are behind will not catch up.” To parents, “Our message is, read to them for 20 minutes a day; it doesn’t have to be 20 at once,” Tierney said. “Sing to them, tell them a story.” With something as simple as a cereal box in the morning, ask your child, “‘find the letter A, find the color orange,’” she added. With very small children, “Read in front of them, they want to emulate what you do,” Tierney said, adding 69 percent of Knox parents take advantage of a county program offering free books to children monthly, babies to age 5. “We’re trying to get childcare centers to require [reading]” she added.

problems as we talk together about what’s going on.” But why introduce mistakes? “I make them to help show the students how they might have easily gotten a wrong answer,” Pevey said. “Of course, every so often I make a mistake by mistake. We can all learn from that, too.” Telling math jokes, she said, is a tool she uses to help her students more readily remember math formulas and rules. “A corny joke or story gives students a memory hook,” Pevey said. “Math concepts are easier to remember with a story.” The TMATYC Teaching Excellence Award is bestowed every two years.

Member Briefs From page 1 National College student Rebecca Kitts recently received the first Inspire Hope Scholarship from the Tennessee Association of Independent Colleges and Schools on Friday, May 4. Her winning essay was chosen from among entries submitted from all over the state of Tennessee. Rebecca began attending National College in 2010 and is majoring in the business administration–accounting program. She chose National College because it is career based, fast paced, and has small classes. Rebecca explained that because she was a National Guard soldier, her military benefits did not cover her full education costs; the scholarship would help her greatly. Though it was a challenge to go to school with a family, she is grateful for the help from the Inspire Hope Scholarship. Rebecca’s husband, Martin, also attends the Knoxville Campus in the information systems engineering degree program; he graduates this May.

Congratulations to Farragut High School for being named one of the state’s top five public schools!

resident P Quotes ‘n Notes by Bettye Sisco

“It is possible to be different and still be all right.” — Anne Wilson Schaef Each of us brings to life a unique temperament and style. This is our special gift to the world. How monotonous it would be if we were all alike in expressing ourselves. Difference is the spice of human behavior. Some of us charge boldly through life taking risks; others choose to play it safe. Some are eager for social interactions; some are loners. Some are spontaneous, some are planned. Some approach each day with gusto; others with caution. Some are perfectionists, others less exacting. As long as we remain open to differences we are enriched. The more we try to accept and understand others the fuller our life and business becomes. Dare to be different -Be innovative. Look at what your competition is doing and do something completely different. -Be relevant to your customers. It pays to be different. -Don’t be a jack-of-all-trades. Instead, find your areas of expertise and focus on being the best in these areas. -Lead the discussion. Establish yourself as a leader by answering customer needs. Roy Osing in his new book, “Be Different or Be Dead,” Has some interesting points. He says, “Hit Your “Refresh” Button.” • “Everything gets stale at some point. Every “good run” ends. • Every marketing program runs out of steam as the sizzle wanes. Newness becomes Oldness with the passage of time.”

He suggests: “Push the Refresh Button!” “Do something NEW. Get your organization excited about NEW. Have a NEW contest to encourage innovation. Reward “NEW” every minute of the day. Wake up!” Get rid of the cobwebs you have from staying the course for so long. Get your own attention to break away from what you’ve been doing for so long. JOLT yourself into asking the question “What do I have to do DIFFERENTLY? Enlist the help of your FANS, the people who are loyal to you and care about what you do. Ask them what you need to do to get out of Sleepy Hollow. They can help. Listen to them and use them.”

Is Your Business Fiscally Fit? by Robert Karpick Senior Business Partner, TSBDC

Physical fitness has once again become an important part of my life. I recently realized Robert Karpick that I was so out of shape that I decided to invest the time, energy, and effort into reversing the destruction that a few too many bowls of ice cream and lunches out of the office had done for me. In February, I invested in the P90X program from Team BeachBody and never looked back. I work out at least one hour per day and monitor my caloric intake. In addition to that, I track my workouts with such detail that I even have a spreadsheet that displays my performance results graphically. Knowledge is power and power creates change. The same can be said for a lot of businesses when it comes to their “fiscal” fitness. It may have been some time since you have really paid attention to your financial performance. Fiscal fitness is more than seeing a positive balance in your bank account. Here are some things you should know about your company’s financial picture… Are there ways that I can improve my cash flow? How do the balance sheet and income statements help me diagnose problems and opportunities in my business? How can a breakeven analysis help me make better pricing and investment decisions? Do I have enough working capital to support growth? If you do not know the answers to these questions, you need to consider doing as I did for my physical fitness. You should invest in the resources, you should dedicate the time, effort and energy to understand your business’ financial condition. If you do not track your fiscal performance, you should do so and review those results so that changes can be made and your business can be optimized. As a result of my efforts, I have now shed over 50 pounds and over 10% body fat. The investment paid off and it will for you. TSBDC business specialists can assist you in achieving fiscal fitness for your business. The Tennessee Small Business Development Center is a free and confidential service. Visit the website at or call the office at 865-246-2663 for additional information or to make an appointment.
