CUMC ‘bean drop’ draws hundreds ■


Hundreds of volunteers made their way to Concord United Methodist Church’s parking lot to sort through 11,120 pounds of green beans for gleaning Saturday morning, July 20. This is the sixth “crop drop” CUMC has hosted in the past three years, benefiting local food pantries through the Society of St. Andrew’s, a national organization that focuses on gleaning. Gleaning is a traditional task from the Bible that provides the hungry with leftover crops. The beans were sorted, bagged and brought to local pantries for donation. The green beans were delivered in a dump truck to the CUMC parking lot Friday night, ready to be bagged in the morning. The church’s VBS made an activity out of making the bags for the beans, getting as many people involved as possible. The parking lot filled with about 300 volunteers from six religious denominations, a Cub Scout pack and a Boy Scout troop, who all began to arrive at about 7:15 a.m., Saturday, even though the event did not officially start until 8 a.m., according to

event coordinator Mike Smith. The volunteers packed the beans into 10-pound bags, tied them off and lined them up to pack into a truck for delivery to one of 15 pantries. “We started about 7:45 and bagged the last green bean at about 9:15, and that is truly amazing,” Smith said. Smith, also a CUMC member and past Holston Conference of the United Methodist Men president, found out about the organization while attending a conference six years ago and immediately knew he wanted to get involved. “I saw the potatoes were going to the landfills, and … we needed to do something about that, so we started,” Smith said. Commercial farms often times have leftover food that is not “economically profitable to harvest,” as the Society of St. Andrew states. Churches and organizations volunteer to organize an event for people to bag these leftover crops and bring them to local pantries. Saturday’s green bean drop had more than 200 volunteers show up to help, and the beans were going to 18 local pantries.

residential zoning ■


Farragut’s Municipal Planning Commission discussed an amendment to the Farragut Zoning Ordinance that would allow, within the R-1 Rural Single-Family Residential District, accessory apartments/ accessory dwelling units. “Farragut, like so many newer municipalities, is a classic textbook study of suburban sprawl, and what we’re looking at here is a gentle way to increase density with no load on the infrastructure,” Alderman Bob Markli said. “... If you look at any of our fine old cities like Atlanta, Houston, Dallas, Baltimore, any of the fine old Southern cities will have a section of town that has what’s commonly referred to as carriage houses or accessory dwelling units. And I’ve personally seen a lot of that, and they’re beautiful. They’re elegant if they’re properly done.” Markli said he has studied and thought about the topic. “It gives an aging parent, a bounceback college student or young adult, a single mom, a dignified, detached, separate living area from the main household,” he said.

Commissioner Ed Whiting said if there were architectural standards, he might consider it. Markli said that was essential. “I think what it needs to be is the accessory structure needs to be of a same architecture style as the principal dwelling,” Markli said. “It should be of limited size. You can’t go back there and build something that overshadows the principal dwelling. If we have a very tasteful house that looks like a part of the estate that blends with the architecture, then I think it becomes a very elegant addition to the housing stock.” According to board materials, “this would not apply to R-1 zoned property that is also zoned with an open space cluster overlay district.” “It would be good to pilot this, have a limited spectrum,” Markli said. “I don’t think we want to just blanket, say, ‘Hey, anybody in Town can do this.’ I think we’ve limited it to R-1. I think it should be limited probably by lot size more necessarily than a specific zoning.” Commissioner Ed St. Clair pointed out how the situation can change. See FMPC on Page 3A


Farragut’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved a contract for the installation of an artificial turf on field No. 2 at Mayor Bob Leonard Park during its Thursday, July 11, meeting. The Town hired Playrite for the project, which includes the removal of all sod, the installation of the artificial turf and a retaining wall and construction of an additional asphalt trail link and a concrete pad to meet ADA accessibility regulations. The project is contracted at $450,769, and 50 percent of the contract will be paid by funds from a Local Parks and

Recreation Fund grant administered by the state of Tennessee Recreation Educational Services Department. Playrite owner Kyle Kaplan said having an artificial turf field instead of a Kaplan natural sod one has the potential to save the Town money over the course of a year. “It could save over 500,000 to 1 million gallons of water a year, if you’re watering [your natural sod field],” Kaplan said.

Playrite has installed artificial turf as well as completed other projects at Knox Catholic and Farragut high schools. “We’ve been given great recommendations by those [schools’] coaches and athletic directors,” Sue Stuhl, director of Parks and Leisure Services, said. “Part of our motivation for getting up and going to work every day is that you will hopefully give us the same recommendation,” Kaplan said. Installation is scheduled to begin early August, and Stuhl and Kaplan said they hope to have the project completed by November. See BOMA on Page 3A

‘Intro to Farragut’ inaugural class graduates


Area residents who participated in the inaugural Introduction to Farragut program achieved graduation status after five months of classes at a ceremony held Tuesday night, July 16, at Fox Den Country Club. “I thought the class was great. It really helped me to get a better understanding of where Farragut is, what the purpose of the Town was originally and what they strive to do as they go forward,” Introduction to Farragut

Program graduate Matthew Bryan said. Bryan and his family moved to Concord Hills in Farragut in 2011, but he still felt there was more to learn about the Town. “I just wanted to learn more about Farragut and what it is the town does specifically and see if there is something I can do to help or improve the Town,” he added. Drew Carson moved to Farragut a few months ago and is in active duty in the Air Force out of McGhee Tyson Airport. When Carson is in Farragut,

though, he wants to involve himself in as many ways as possible. “I wanted to become more involved in the Town, and I wanted to learn all about Farragut and see how the town operates so I could become more involved,” Carson said. “My favorite part was learning how the Town works, seeing the public works department and just learning the different personal and getting to know everybody.” Vice Mayor Dot LaMarche is See INTRO on Page 3A

Food for Kids begins its 10th year policereports


Food for Kids is in its 10th year of providing weekend food for East Tennessee students and continues to expand its coverage, including several West Knox County schools. The program was piloted in 2003 in a single Scott County school with the hope of providing kids in need with food to get them through the weekend. Bags are packed for children that teachers suspect to be at risk of hunger. Some of the children will tell the teachers, while others are seen taking food from their peers, out of the lunchroom or collecting from the trash can. A pack full of nutritious food will be placed in their backpacks for the weekend, brought back on Monday and refilled each Friday throughout the school year. The program runs entirely on donations. “What I’ve learned is the East Tennessee community is more than willing to meet a need as important as child hunger. It’s just a matter of getting the awareness out there. It’s a heartbreaking problem, but it’s heartening to know the community will step up and take care of it,” Sam Compton, Second Harvest Food Bank of East Tennessee youth program director, said. The 10-year-old project continues to expand and evolve with 18 counties, 240 schools, and more

than 11,000 children benefiting from the program. More than 500,000 meals are provided for these children in a single school year, costing an average of $60 per child for the year. This number is not much for an entire school year, as some of these packs provide for both the student and younger siblings at home. As the needs grow, so does the demand for financial resources to help every child possible. Each school requires a $3,000 sponsorship in order to implement the program. According Compton, Farragut Primary , Farragut Intermediate, A.L. Lotts and Hardin Valley Elementary schools are all part of the group of schools that have sponsors, some even coming through in the last few weeks. However, there are about 25 schools still in need of sponsorships. “In order to keep it going, we need help from the communities,” Compton said. “If they’re able to help us … we would just be thrilled. It would make a big difference,” he added. Second Harvest tries to be as savvy as possible with its donations. All of the food for the children is purchased by the truckload, ensuring the cost is at a minimum while providing the most food as possible in each pack. “When you’re serving more than 11,000 kids, the cost is sigSee FOOD on Page 3A

Town administrator David Smoak said he is pleased with the outcome of the course. “That’s what we were trying to do … we are trying to get people involved and learn more about their community,” Smoak said. There is not a future course on the calendar at this point in time, because the Town wants to take the suggestions of the graduates into consideration first. When the next class is available, Smoak assured the Town will hear about how to become a member of its second graduating class.

“We have groups that have been chomping at the bit,” Stuhl said. “We anticipate heavy use of the field. We have a lot of [interest from] groups — football, soccer, lacrosse, ultimate Frisbee … you name it.” In other BOMA meeting news, the Board approved the purchase of a 2013 John Deere Right of Way Mowing Tractor from CMI Equipment Sales, Inc. This tractor purchase, totaling at $80,347 includes an Alamo Versa Mower or break-away extension arm. This tractor will replace a 2004 New Holland Tractor cur-

PART-TIME REPORTER Send résumé & writing samples to:


letterstotheeditor I would like to thank the town of Farragut and its Board of Mayor and Alderman for giving me the opportunity to participate in the inaugural class of “Introduction To Farragut.” The in-depth program allowed me and my colleagues to experience the inner-workings of effective local government. The six-month experience as envisioned by BOMA and created by Town staff allowed me to develop a greater appreciation for the hard-work of many individuals both paid and volunteer. It is easy to take for granted how nice it is to live and work here as we drive the roads, shop the stores and use the parks of Farragut. Farragut should be proud of the efforts of its officials and the professionalism demonstrated by a dedicated staff guided by Town administrator David Smoak. During the process, I was impressed by the thoughtful and sincere consideration that is given to all items brought forward by Farragut’s citizenry or those issues that impact the community from outside. Many topics, such as uniform code enforcement, are like “watching paint dry.” Such mundane discussions are still given proper research and due diligence with an eye to always improving the quality of life we enjoy. Of

course, there are plenty of other exciting issues to study further or resolve such as budgets, taxes and zoning. During the last six months, some of these stories created headlines, and as part of the program I learned to follow the thought process. I also want to thank all of the people who volunteered and made time in their schedules to bring the history, public works, engineering, traffic, codes and recreational activities alive with interesting presentations and fieldtrips. There are many people totally invested in the positive direction of Farragut. It was easy for me to give so little effort to receive so much from this first-time program. I trust this is just the beginning of an important component in the future of a growing and thriving Farragut. I hope to quickly give back some of the energy and warm hospitality extended to me during this very rewarding experience. Stephen F. Krempasky Knoxville LCUB general manager M. Shannon Littleton was quoted in your paper as saying: “It concerns me that we are focusing so much on green energy, if you will, in our nation, and we look around the world, and it’s simply

presstalk • RUSSELL HOUSE: Somebody wrote letting us know how absolutely indispensable this project is. They sound like the potential sellers ...wanting to cash $1.25 mill for something that has a much lower actual value. The Town’s interest in purchasing this property for “historical reasons” doesn’t look very clean when you consider the price being offered, plus spending of an additional million or so to restore it. My contentions are therefore two. First as just said is why overpay and to such an extent? Could the Town first find out what the actual market value of the house is? Please remember the fact that it is on the National Registry, [which] means it cannot be altered and that actually REDUCES the actual value as it very much limits the potential use. Second is what does the Town intend to do with it when finished? Offices, a

the amount of pollution that other nations are emitting is much greater that what we’re doing.” The fact is that the United States is the No. 2 among nations in total emissions of carbon dioxide. China is first at about twice the total emissions. The United States leads the world in per capita CO2 emissions. Unless Mr. Littleton is comparing the United States with the total of the rest of the world, his statement about emissions is false. With respect to his opinion on green energy, there have [been] reductions in CO2 because of the increase in the use of natural gas for power generation, replacing some coal. More reduction of emissions can occur with the completion of the nuclear power plants. We need to be doing what is reasonable, without increasing cost to the ratepayer, to decrease emissions from power plants. That search should continue unabated by the energy industry, and that involves “green energy” where there is opportunity. A. L. (Pete) Lotts Farragut This is in response to your July 18 article on the president’s call for reduced emissions at new and existing power plants and M. Shannon Littleton’s (LCUB gen-

eral manager) comments. I am a civil/environmental engineer with 45 years of experience in environmental restoration and remediation. Over the past 40 years, our nation has recognized and dealt with major surface water, groundwater, and air pollution problems that were impacting our environment and potentially our health and quality of life. State and federal laws and regulations were enacted that effectively addressed most of these problems. In all of these cases, we reached a point of severe damage to our environment before we acted. The big unknown here is how much carbon dioxide (CO2) we can load into the atmosphere without severe consequences and at what point is it too late to recover. There is no technology to remove large amounts of CO2 from the atmosphere. Many scientists believe that a safe levels for CO2 is 350 parts per million (PPM). We are currently around 400 ppm. Contrary to Littleton’s statement, our nation is the No. 1 emitter of CO2 on a per capita basis and we emit more than any other industrialized nation. China now emits as much as the United States, but far less on a per capita basis. This is an issue that will dominate our future and especially

McDonald’s drive through on July 17, thank you so much. I was having the worse morning you can imagine. Your timing was perfect. You made my day. Your kindness will not be forgotten. • How wonderful that Farragut is going to buy the Russell House. I think that is one of the best uses of the money they could possibly have. In fact, I think we should rename Farragut Campbell Station. That’s the historic name. Why is it named for some man who lived 5 miles away and for a short time as a young child? Thank you. • This is in reference to the person who called presstalk about wanting Farragut to allow guns in parks. That’s ridiculous. Four years with no incidents doesn’t mean it’s OK to carry your gun. It means you don’t need to carry your gun. You don’t need a gun. You don’t need to protect yourself. You are a wee-

I am surprised that the mayor and aldermen are planning to pass such a regulation [firearms not permitted in Town parks] for our Town. Crime committed is rarely by a person who is licensed to carry a firearm. Firearms, like drugs, can be purchased easily by those with a criminal record. ... Would such regulation in Farragut stop most criminals without a license from carrying a weapon into our parks? NO. If a criminal wants to rob or injure someone in the commission of a robbery, will walk into the park armed, no posted notice will prevent him/her from doing so, will make sure that he/she is not recognizable, and will go after older people and women who are easy targets, who are very likely to not carry a weapon because of the planned town regulation. ... For the above reasons pro and con, I respectfully request that the Farragut Board do not approve a regulation that prohibits the carrying of a legally licensed weapon into the Town’s parks. Victor Spencer Farragut

671-TALK museum? What? And if it’s intended as a museum then please show us a budget of its daily run and upkeep plus a projection of number of visitors per year. If both are well and honestly done we will end up seeing that the cost (including the amortization of purchase/res toration price) divided by the amount of visits will add up to an incredibly high figure per capita. Finally the total sum is a disproportionate amount when you compare it with the yearly budget of the Town, and therefore should be subject to intense and careful public scrutiny. It’s not after all a change of office supplies vendor we are talking about. If after this scrutiny the people of Farragut still want to go ahead let’s do so at a fair price. Doing it any other way would be fishy to say the least. • To the wonderful woman who paid for my breakfast at the

the future of our children and grandchildren. I strongly support the reduced emissions. John R Moebes Farragut

nie if you think you need a gun in a park or any time. It’s not the society we live in. We don’t live in certain areas of this country or this county or city where guns are common and incidents are common and it’s not what’s going on in Farragut and don’t make it what it isn’t. You’re just a scared little person if you think you need a gun all the time. What is wrong with you? • I am responding to the fireworks article in the paper today. I sympathize with this person dearly. I live in Bent Tree [subdivision] also and I have witnessed the same thing year after year after year. I have contacted the Knox County Sheriff’s department also, same as this other person, no one ever responds. I am wondering who, just like this other person, who is supposed to enforce this. I have even asked for a supervisor and no one will ever let me talk with one, they

keep saying one is not available. They also say the officer has to see the fireworks when they come through and the person shooting them. Well, on the fourth if they would just cruise through Bent Tree they would see tons of them going off everywhere. I was even outside cleaning up my trees today and two fell and hit me on the head. I am just real sick and tired of it. I don’t want them on my property. I don’t like hearing them. There are annoying. There is a noise ordinance that should be enforced and also the fireworks are illegal. Now I am going to keep trying to find out what supervisor I need to speak with to get these officers to respond to these fireworks. I also have witnessed them shooting them off and it’s not even a holiday. This also applies to View Harbor [subdivision]. View Harbor and Bent Tree are real bad.

FMS included in Knox countys new 75 min class time ■ COURTNEY SUCH

Students attending Knox County middle schools will experience longer class times starting this August in an effort to better prepare them for their future, Farragut Middle School included. “This conversation started a couple years ago with under the No Child Left

Behind act … [it will provide] additional time for students to be able to go deeper … move from more procedural to more conceptual understanding of what is being taught,” said Dr. Clifford Davis executive director of secondary education for Knox County Schools. The decision was made with the help of a KCS group of principals and teachers representing every subject area.

“What we did in the district was give the teachers and principals parameters,” Davis added. These “parameters” include an allotted time of 75 to 110 minutes for reading/language arts and mathematics, allowing each school to make their own personal decisions on the schedule designs. FMS will have 75-minute academic classes, combining reading and language

arts, and two 45-minute related arts this fall. Jerri Brock, previously a FMS reading teacher, will now teach the new combined reading/language arts classes. Brock is already planning how to best utilize her time in class. “I vision dividing the 75 minutes up …starting class in writing every day and See FMS on Page 8A

BHS NJROTC seeks donations Unit chosen as Tennessee’s representatives at Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade.


It’s always nice to save more than $30,000. For the longest time, Belinda Twohig and her Bearden High School Navy Junior ROTC unit have placed a $100,000 estimated cost on their trip to Hawaii in December as Tennessee’s official representative for Pearl Harbor Memorial Parade. Then came good news Thursday afternoon, July 11, about the unit’s long-awaited flight cost total for 35 cadets and five chaperones for six days and five nights, a total Twohig had sought for several weeks. “Good News is that the total price on the trip was $69,491 … and to date we have paid $22,075,” e-mailed Twohig, Bearden NJROTC Senior Naval Science instructor and retired major in U.S. Marines. The $69,491 is for 40 people — the minimum targeted for the

trip — but more cadets could be added if BHS NJROTC could raise more than $70,000. That number also could fluctuate because all cadets must have passing grades, avoid disciplinary problems “and participate in unit service hours and community service hours” to make the trip, Twohig said. About the overall fundraising effort, “About 60 students have been selling candy bars,” Twohig said. “And our top dogs, 21, probably, have been heavy fundraisers. I’ve got one young lady, she raised almost $800 in sponsorships.” “We are looking for a donation of a dollar if [contributors] would give the name of a veteran, in honor of or in memory of. Have those names listed on our website, and then we go to the memorial … when the World War II vets send out their wreaths, we were going to have the cadets drop flower petals out into the ocean See BHS on Page 8A

Camp Invention continues to shine bright


Camp Invention made its way into Farragut Intermediate School June 10-14 for the third year in a row, providing rising first through sixth graders an opportunity to gain new skills without even realizing it. The camp is a national organization that provides a weeklong itinerary for an enriching camp

experience like no other. Krista Cardenas FIS English as a Second Language teacher brought the program to Farragut three years ago and does not plan on stopping anytime soon. “I love the light bulbs when they go off. Their ideas are meaningful. They could be our next world problem solvers,” Cardenas said.

The theme for this year’s camp was “Geo-Quest,” and the campers were presented with four modules to work with throughout the week. These included Ecoverse, Cache dash, Amazing Atlas, and I Can Invent: Launchitude. Each day the campers had a challenge presentSee CAMP on Page 8A

Your problems are a window to your success! It’s time to love yourself NOW, not when your circumstances are different! When you deepen your relationship with YOU and take the time to look at yourself with new eyes and truly honor the holiness within you, your cir- Pam cumstances Young will change Make it with ease Fun! and grace. Your problems are a window to your success, whether you’re in a mess at home, in a relationship that’s frustrating, feeling a financial crunch, in a body that weighs too much, whatever, the very thing you call a problem is an opportunity to get to learn more

about yourself and love who you are. “Self-improvement is a lifetime path, but it’s a pursuit that doesn’t lead to a place where everything is perfect. When you reach what you thought was your final destination, you’ll find that you have farther to go.” I wrote that in The Sidetracked Sister’s Happiness File more than 30 years ago. We’ll always be wanting to be better, because it’s human nature. Think about how fun it is to want something you know you’ll receive. When you do that, you’re looking forward to that thing or that circumstance. I think that’s why it’s so fun to fall in love! You want that person and you know you’re going to get him or her because that person wants you too. Once you get the person, the wanting is over. The getting is never as fun as the wanting part. Since you are the only YOU on this planet, what you want is unique to you, but what isn’t

unique is the reason any of us wants anything. The only reason we want something is that we think it will make us feel better. What’s so interesting about this real reason is that we can feel better without having what we thought would make us feel better. Esther Hicks, one of my favorite speakers and writers told of her neighbor’s cat. They named him “Party Cat,” because whenever they had a party the cat would always come over to their house. One time when Party Cat was at one of her shindigs and was getting petted and talked to as he basked in a chair, he rolled over on his back and stretched out to get

his tummy rubbed and someone asked the cat, “What do you do to deserve this?” Everyone laughed, because they knew that the cat deserved the love and attention just for being a cat. We are just like Party Cat. We don’t have to do anything to feel better. What we can do is start practicing basking in that love we deserve for being human and being happy right now regardless of our situation. If you’ll start catching yourself complaining or whining about some problem and remind yourself that if Party Cat is loved just for being a cat, you are loved for just being you. Once you can feel that love, and it may take a few

deep breaths and silence, remind yourself that the problem you were complaining about is just there to teach you more about yourself and help you grow and thrive. Be thankful for your problems and see each one as window to your success.

Gleason, Wang represent Tennessee at National Science Camp FHS grad appreciates unique learning opportunity before heading to Harvard

HVA grad enjoyed hands on science with outdoors experience


Among 122 of the top Class of 2013 science students from across the nation and around the world, Palmer Gleason is roughing it in West Virginia. This 2013 Hardin Valley Academy graduate is enjoying a 25day combination of handson scientific learning and rugged recreation at Gleason a secluded camp. Gleason joins Farragut High School graduate Lawrence Wang as Tennessee’s delegates at 2013 National Youth Science Camp held June 26 to July 20 in Monongahela National Forest, W.Va. “From one of the staff here, we learned about how we can become EMTs at our college squad, and how to go through that process,” Gleason, 18, said. “I was especially grateful to learn about the EMT process because I would love to do that in college and get that experience. “And just being surrounded by so many people that are going into

the medical field,” Gleason added. “And also the lectures, quite a few of them have been about medicine. It’s really cool to take what I learned in school and apply it to everyday life.” “We learned about cancer and about whether we should try to prevent it or not. And if we do prevent it, then other causes of death, the risk of other deaths will rise if the risk of cancer goes down.” As for process, “They really try to probe your curiosity and ask you questions and ask you why certain things happen this way,” Gleason said. “They encourage you to try and figure it out for yourself. “We also learned about synthesitia … you associate certain colors with certain letters or numbers or people. … We learned about nontuberculosis microbacteria.” Graduating with a 4.3 grade point average who continues building on her goal of becoming a nurse, Gleason earned HVA’s Health-Science Academy’s endorsement. “Which means I took a certain number of healthscience and science classes, since I want to go into the medical field,” she said. “I also completed 50 community service hours.” Headed to The University of See HVA on Page 10A


Lawrence Wang, a 2013 Farragut High School graduate, is a Tennessee delegate to the National Youth Science Camp in West Virginia.

Medical center marks 10 years ■


Turkey Creek Medical Center celebrates its 10th anniversary in July. Lance Jones, chief executive officer of Turkey Creek Medical Center, said it was originally meant to be a women’s hospital. “Our services include cardiology and cardiovascular surgery, women’s services, including OB and gynecology, delivering around probably 450 babies (average per year), new members to the Farragut, Turkey Creek community,” he said. “We have cancer services here with radiation therapy. We have an orthopedic program and joint replacement center, a men’s health center of excellence, focused on prostate care and prostate disease. We have our Center for Surgical Weight Loss, and we have general surgery and our ENT surgeons as well.” Turkey Creek Medical Center will open a wound center later in the year, he said. “That will be working with patients in our community and surrounding counties that have what are known as chronic wounds, and these are wounds that are taking a long time to heal and helping to assist in the repair of those wounds,” he said. “Another new service we’ll be exploring will be occupational medicine, and that’s working with

area companies to help assist with their preemployment physicals or injured-worker needs.” The operating rooms are getting renovated, as well, he said. “Our physicians and medical staff have helped redefine the role of our hospital in the West Knoxville market,” he said. “Our physicians are helping lead all of the initiatives that our campus is focused on. Our associates have helped define our culture and are what I refer to as proud frogs. The reason I do that is that a proud frog praises his pond. ... They’re very proud of the work that they do here each day. Health care is truly a calling, and our opportunity to serve the West Knoxville/Farragut community is very important for us and we very much believe in that calling to health care.” Jones outlined the center’s history, saying, “The leaders soon expanded the scope to be a full-service hospital. ... It opened under the name of Baptist Hospital West, and then in 2008, it merged with the St. Mary’s Health System, and the new name at that time was Mercy Medical Center West. Then in 2011, it was acquired by Health Management Associates and renamed to Turkey Creek Medical Center, which is a part of the Tennova system here in Knoxville.”

Wieniewitz Financial moves to new location


Wieniewitz Financial moved to its new location at 1060 Lovell Road in January. “We needed more space,” said Trae Wieniewitz, president of Wieniewitz Financial. “Fortunately we’ve been able to grow and had a big demand for our services. And as well, we wanted to get into a location that was a little bit more visible, and this is right on a real busy road, busy street, and a whole bunch of cars drive by it every day.” The business relocated from Baton Rouge, La., to Knoxville in 2005, following Hurricane Katrina, he said. “We looked at a whole bunch of different areas and thought it was just a real good fit for our family, based on still being a college town,” Wieniewitz said. “Before, I

lived in Baton Rouge, La., so Knoxville was a college town. It was still in the South and in the Bible Belt, so the culture and the people were very similar, we assumed, and just a real beautiful place and a place — at the time, we didn’t have children — and thought it would be a great place to raise a family.” He called the transition from Louisiana to Tennessee difficult. “We pretty much started over,” he said. “We didn’t know one person when we moved up here eight years ago. So it was very difficult, but we’ve been very blessed and fortunately made some good contacts and relationships with people in this area and got a lot of our new business every year from referrals, which always helps.” He said there are three main services the business offers: “investment and retirement planning services, mortgage-related

services and tax preparation.” “We’re a full-service financial planning firm, and we work with people in doing retirement planning,” he said. “We have an inhouse mortgage company in the offices now, and we also help people prepare taxes and really just kind of specialize in more conservative or safer strategies and helping investors save money on fees. So efficiency is a big priority for our clients.” He pointed out several ways the business stands out. “We’re local,” he said. “We’re independent, meaning we can use whatever the best solution is for the problem. We’re not tied into using one particular company’s products. And we have a great support staff here at the office, five full-time employees to support all of our clients and any needs that they may have.”


DaVita Dialysis, to be located at 111 S. Campbell Station Road, will open in Farragut. “They are looking at opening the center at the very last part of this year, potentially in December 2013, or the first quarter of 2014,” said Ginger Pelz, spokesperson for DaVita. The location is the former Edison Park Steakhouse. She said the business has about 2,000 locations in the nation. Another center is located at 9141 Cross Park Drive in Knox-ville. “DaVita is a kidney dialysis provider, so we provide dialysis treatment to patients whose kidneys failed,” she said. Kidney disease has several risk factors, she said. “Minorities are high at risk,” she said. “People who have high blood pressure are high at risk. High cholesterol, family history of the disease or folks who are just generally older in life, sometimes their kidneys can shut down, and if that happens, they will have to have dialysis. And so the thing that a lot of people don’t know is that one in 10 U.S. adults has kidney disease, and a lot of them don’t know it.” The No. 1 risk factor for kidney disease is diabetes, she said. “We’re bringing a new center to the area just so it can be more convenient for folks who do have to go on dialysis,” she said. “... The interesting thing about dialysis is patients have to, they have to come to their dialysis treatments three times a week for about four hours at a time. So they’re spending a lot of time with us, and they’re spending a lot of time getting to and from their treatments. So opening centers like this is to be more convenient for patients who do have to have dialysis treatments because there is a need in the area.” The business hosts kidney education classes, she said. “In the Knoxville area, we host what we call Kidney Smart classes,” she said. “They are kidney education classes that are provided to the community at no cost, and it’s not just for people whose kidneys have failed. It can be for somebody who maybe has some of the risk factors of kidney disease, and we can talk to them about what they can do in their lives to manage that.” She said the business offers dialysis treatment primarily. “We actually provide the hands-on treatment to those patients that have kidney failure,” she said. “So when they come and see us for a treatment ... we’re actually cleaning their blood. We filter their blood through a machine, and it filters out the toxins that their kidneys can no longer filter out on their own, since they’re not functioning properly, and then we return the blood back into the body clean. ... In addition to in-center hemodialysis, the DaVita Farragut dialysis center will also be offering peritoneal dialysis, a home dialysis option for patients.”


After 23, Anita to bid VG goodbye ■


At age 6, a young girl from Memphis was so scared of water, “I was afraid to put my face in the water.” However, thanks to a patient, loving father working with her in a hotel pool, then her club swimming coach’s “huge influence,” Anita Dinwiddie and swim coaching would go together like bacon and eggs among scores of Farragut and Knox County families. A quarter century of getting the most out of high school swimmers as Knoxville Catholic head coach, ending this past season, preceded Dinwiddie also preparing to hand Dinwiddie over the head coaching reigns with Village Green Gators community swim team after 23 years. “As a coach, what she has created with this team has just really shaped my children’s childhood,” Kim Deakins said about Kaci, 15, Molly, 13, Lainey, 10, and Conner, 8. “They’re going to think of their summer vacation as going to swim practice and going to meets ... and just all the little things that were put in place by Anita.” Ali Gilbertson, 18, swam for Dinwiddie at Catholic (2013 graduate) in addition to finishing up her 14th and final year with VG. “She has a lot of swimming knowledge,” said Gilbertson, a member of Dinwiddie’s Greater Knoxville Area Interclub Swimming Association “City Meet” champi-

onship teams in 2008, 2009 and 2011. “But what she’s really taught everybody is the love for the sport that she has. ... She’s really made it a family.” Going out with her youngest daughter, Martha, who at 18 is swimming her last year with VG after beginning at age 5, Dinwiddie’s older daughter, Anna, also swam for the Gators her entire 14 years of eligibility. “There’s just a lot of cool people here in Village Green to get to know and watch their families grow,” said Dinwiddie, who also led VG to six consecutive Smoky Mountain Invitational swim meet titles. “The parents at Village Green are just awesome ... very supportive.” Arriving in Knox County in late summer 1972 when she became a student at The University of Tennessee, Dinwiddie first got into coaching at KCHS during the 1988-89 school year. “A friend of mine [Jean Fox] who had been coaching at Knoxville Catholic … she was going to retire. And she had been bugging me for a year, ‘You should coach high school,’” Dinwiddie said. “And I kept saying, ‘I don’t know how to coach, I’ve never done it before.’” Agreeing to take over “for one year,” Dinwiddie said she realized, “This is kind of fun. One year just led into another.” With vital assistant coaching help from Robin Wells, who specializes instructing “the little kids” for 18 years, Dinwiddie got started with VG in 1990 “when I was teaching swim lesson at Fort Sanders. That summer, Village Green contracted Fort Sanders to coach their swim team. And I got asked to be an assistant.” She took over as head coach in 1991.

Anita Dinwiddie watches over her older Village Green swimmers during practice laps Friday morning, July 19.

Looking back, “My dad [Harold] taught me how to swim,” said Dinwiddie, who has competed in three national “iron man” competitions. “We were at a hotel pool … I remember being about 7 or 8 years old, and we’d going out in that hotel pool, and we’d go out at 6 a.m. before anybody else would be out there. And the water would be freezing. “And he’d say, ‘Swim toward me,’ and I’d swim toward him and he’d keep backing up,” she

added. “And then once I realized I made it all away across the pool, I just kept on going back and forth. I guess I haven’t stopped since.” Swimming for Memphis Athletic Club in her youth under coach Dick Fadgen, “He’s always been my inspiration, really,” Dinwiddie said. “I just remember wanting to be like him. … He just made swimming fun, but he taught us a lot.” Specializing as “a backstroker and a distance freestyler … I

did well in swimming as a kid, better than any other sport I had tried,” Dinwiddie said. “I went to Southeasterns and Junior Olympics. … I traveled all around the southeast. My mom [Ione Cristil] took me everywhere.” Kat Barker, 18, said Dinwiddie “is really tough on us, but when I look around to other teams I’m just really grateful that we have someone who knows as much about swimming as she does.”

Hughes on top of her golf game ■



It’s been quite a golf year for Teleri Hughes. Having just graduated from Farragut High School, this Tennessee Lady Volunteers Golf signee was named one of three Greater Knoxville Sports Hall of Fame’s High School Athletes of the Year July 11, while also being named by one local publication as its Girls Golfer of the Year among Knox metro area high school talent. On top of all that, “I’ve had a really great summer, actually,” Hughes said. “I’d probably say it’s my best in my high school career, actually.” As for ranking, “On Junior Golf Scoreboard I’m actually first in the state right now,” Hughes said among 18-and-under girls. “Nationally, I think on Junior Golf Scoreboard I’m 193. “I started out in June playing in the Bubba Conlee National [Junior] Tournament, and I came in second there,” Hughes added about a national high school girls field in Memphis. “It’s like one of the biggest fields they’ve had so far. … I finished even [par]. “I’ve just been hitting the ball really well. And I’ve been working really hard this past winter and spring too, like, really getting my game ready for college.”

One week after Bubba Conlee, “I played in the [American Junior Golf Association Bridgstone] at Richland Country Club in Nashville, and I won,” Hughes said. “It was a national tournament.” She then finished second in Tennessee State Junior Amateur Championships at Foxland Harbor Golf and Country Club in Gallatin (2-over 218) July 10-11. Despite these big events, “I wasn’t necessarily as nervous,” Hughes said. “Mentally, I have felt a lot better. All I have been thinking is, ‘Just stay close to par and you can be in contention. Just play consistent and you’ll be fine.’” Having transferred to Baylor School in Chattanooga for her junior year before coming back to FHS as a senior, Hughes, 18, finished second in District 4-AAA tourney at Lambert Acres (67); took third in Region 2-AAA tourney at Tennessee National (70), then placed third in Class AAA state tournament at Willowbrook in Manchester (73-75-148, 36 holes). Overseas, Hughes appeared in “Welsh Girls Championship” in 2009 and 2012. Last year, “I made it to the semifinals of match play … that was my first time experiencing match play,” she said. “It was a lot of fun.” and I actually really enjoyed it.”
