Farragut ‘Snow Birds’ get homecoming surprise ■

Courtney Such/farragutpress

“Snow Birds” Jeanie and Curt Diedrick stand in front of their home in Andover subdivision in Farragut, where the power was turned off by LCUB while the couple was on extended vacation in Florida. The Diedricks did not know they owed on their account due to a policy that does not allow the U.S. Post Office to forward billing statements.


Jeanie and Curt Diedrick returned home after an eightmonth vacation to a house with no electricity thanks to a Lenoir City Utilities Board policy. “We are Snow Birds and have been for about five years now. We spend part of the year in Florida and the rest of the year in Knoxville. I have paid a lump sum to each of the utilities … never realizing that LCUB does not forward bills never giving it another thought, because we make payments on multiple homes,” homeowner Jeanie Diedrick said. Her usual “lump sum” of prepayments was down to zero before returning to their Andover subdivision home in Farragut. “When we drove home, we were confronted with our garage door not opening. We realized that there was final notice sign in the corner of the garage door and low and behold, they turned off our electricity.” A team of LCUB workers was

able to turn on their electricity that night, but the Diedricks were not prepared for what was inside their home. “Having our electricity off, there was no air, and the refrigerators and freezers had been pretty full, and everything had gone rotten and molded … we almost passed out because of the stink,” Jeanie Diedrick said. The Diedricks paid more than $500 in maintenance, late, turnon and turn-off fees upon the week of their return, all because of a policy they did not even know existed. “The policy that has existed has turned into a nightmare for us,” Diedrick said. LCUB has admitted to the confusion and is taking care of everything one step at a time. “Shannon [Littleton, LCUB general manager] has assured us that I believe we will get our money back for all this stuff we put out in loss and food, and they’re going to work with us.” Matthew Fagiana, LCUB Homeland Security, Safety direc-

FWK Chamber hosts ‘Proton Therapy’ event Movers, Shakers ■


Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce 2013 Breakfast Series’ Provision Center for Proton Therapy event took place Tuesday, July 23, at Fox Den Country Club. According to the Provision Center for Proton Therapy website, “The Provision Center for Proton Therapy will be the first of its kind in Tennessee and only the second in the southeast. It will open in early 2014 and provide the most advanced cancer treatment in the world to patients in the region.” “We are very happy to give 15 percent of our ticket sales today

to Relay for Life,” Bettye Sisco, Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce president and CEO, said at the event. She estimated 160 people attended the event. “I thought the event was tremendous,” Sisco said. “I think just the very fact that it was a sellout — we had to turn people away – showed people’s interest in learning more about the proton therapy.” The presentation was strong, she said. “I thought that for a very difficult topic, it was explained explicitly,” she said. “It was explained well, and it helped everybody at any level understand what they were talking

about and exactly what they were doing with proton therapy.” Farragut Alderman Ron Honken called this “a great day for our area.” “Boy, I tell you, this is amazing,” Honken added. “I mean to have this type of technology in our community and the benefit it’s going to bring not just to the citizens but the surrounding area. Knoxville’s going to become a destination for medical services.” One particular part of the presentation was most interesting to Honken. “Not having a background in this type of technology, I was so impressed with how they can isoSee CHAMBER on Page 4A

Club hosts field day ■


The Movers and Shakers Club of Farragut hosted its inaugural field day event Monday morning, July 15, at Anchor Park. The idea came to special events and project coordinator Lauren Cox and park assistant Matt Oglesby earlier this year to add a field day event to inspire some exercise in disguise. “Going along with the Movers and Shakers Club and the Let’s Move! initiative, I wanted to offer the kids in the community a fun outdoor program to help

motivate activity into their summer. Every kid loves field day, so I thought it would fit perfect into what I was trying to do,” Cox said. “We have offered the Movers and Shakers Club for eight years now. Adding programs like the field day gives them an extra opportunity to exercise and meet other kids in the program,” she added. Thirteen children and their siblings made it out to Anchor Park at 9 a.m. on a Monday morning to compete in field See FIELD DAY on Page 3A

Parks and Leisure Services presents master plan ■

Robby O’Daniel/farragutpress

Sue Stuhl, Parks and Leisure Services director, presents the department’s master plan to FMPC.


Farragut’s Municipal Planning Commission approved the Parks and Leisure Services Master Plan 2013–2023 update at its meeting Thursday, July 18. Sue Stuhl, Parks and Leisure Services director, said, “In 2007, the Board of Mayor and Aldermen appointed a citizen committee to formulate a master plan for the area parks and recreation, and in January of 2008, they presented this plan to the planning commission and to the board. And it is five years, and it’s time for us to do an update. We won’t do a major

rewrite of the plan. We’re going to update the goals and action items. So the state of Tennessee does not require parks and leisure services department to have a master plan. Some states do, but if you are going to apply for grants, which we do a lot of, you pretty much need to have a master plan in place.” The master plan is broken up into near-term, mid-term and long-term sections. The nearterm and mid-term parts are matched with the town of Farragut Strategic Plan goals. At the meeting, Stuhl went over the plan’s near-term portion, which covers 2013 to 2017. “The strategic plan goal No. 1

is to maintain a financially sound town, providing excellent services,” she said. “So one of the things is a community center that has come up over and over again and the feasibility study of that, and how funding and operating such could happen.” The fourth strategic plan goal is to facilitate future growth, development and redevelopment. “We do a plant-a-tree program every year where people can pick an area that they’d like a tree planted,” she said. “We have a bronze plaque that goes in. We do landscaping and updated tree See PLAN on Page 3A

tor and risk manager, said he understands the significance of the situation and is discussing how to handle the policy with his co-workers. “It takes something of significance sometimes to revisit a law,” Fagiana said, comparing the “archaic” policy to longstanding laws. Because this issue has only come up twice in Littleton’s years at LCUB, he had no idea the policy was not suitable for these types of travelers. “It’s one of those [policies] if you review it, it will expose uniqueness. This [situation] is relatively new. I hate that some-

one had to suffer because of the exposure, but we are going to fix it,” Littleton said. The policy worked in LCUB’s favor up until now due to “delinquent” customers not paying their bills when sent to an alternate address. Littleton said customer service ranks as a top priority for LCUB, and it has been this way since it’s founding in 1938. “I think the one thing we focus on is customer service … it is a unique situation, but the biggest thing for LCUB is prompt response and working with the Diedricks to make sure it doesn’t happen again to them or anyone else,” Fagiana added. If an extended trip is scheduled, Fagiana suggests you check

with your utility companies’ policies prior to leaving. He also encourages pre-paying or automatic draft if the customer is financially able. Littleton sug-

The arrestee then went and stole four bags of red grapes valued at about $40 and placed them in two of the bags. She then concealed the bags between her legs, took two more bags of grapes and proceeded to the self-service check out and paid for the visible grapes. The arrestee corroborated store personnel’s statement. • July 24: A Fine Avenue woman reported to police her Samsung

The victim’s daughter called the cell phone number and some girls answered and hung up when they were told the phone belonged to the victim. The daughter called back and the girl who answered told the caller her sister had found the phone on the previous day. Service to the phone has been terminated.

events such as a potato sack race, dodge ball, a hula hoop contest and softball shot-put, just to name a few. “I thought we had a pretty great turn out. Everyone had fun even though it was very hot,” Cox added, noting the early morning heat. The children did not realize that their competitive and playful natures meant they were exercising, according to Cox, adding this was a positive aspect of the event. “I love seeing kids at play. This event teaches them that exercise is play.” Celia Gruzalski, mother of Ella, 5, and Silas, 1, enjoyed what the field day had to offer. “It is such a great way to keep them active throughout the summer,” she said. The Movers and Shakers Club is in its eight year and was origi-

sions upon that because they cost money. They cost staff time, so sometimes things have to evolve a little bit.” She said utilizing the present staff is key. “There’s not a lot of staff, and so there’s limited resources, trying to maximize them,” she said.

Farragut’s annual street resurfacing project began in early July, making improvements on 19 streets throughout Farragut, taking about two weeks to complete. Farragut’s engineering team, directed by Town engineer Darryl Smith, decides which roads need the most improvement. A $500,000 budget is set each year for this project, and the team does everything they can to stay under it. However, because asphalt is a petroleum product and prices swiftly go up

and down, the cost of the surface mix is the ultimate deciding factor of how many streets can be resurfaced from year to year. “As we approach the time that we want to resurface or have a new contract, we essentially have a running list of roads we’d like to consider next year, so we look at those first. Once a preliminary list is put together, we pretty much make sure we all agree that these are what we want to work on,” Smith said. This year’s list included Ivy Chase Lane, Lark Meadow and Gatesmill drives in Sweetbriar, Ivy Lake Drive in the Farm at Willow Creek, Cedar Ridge Drive

in Linda Heights, Long Bow, Broken Saddle, Red Canyon and Sundown roads in Fort West, Deadwood Road in Old Stage Hills, Hidden Creek Circle in Stonecrest, Four Seasons Lane in Village Green, Black Powder Drive and Banbury Road in Turkey Creek Woods, East Union Road from 12536 Union Road to Smith Road, Harrison Road from Watt Road to the Town limit, Everett Road from I-40/75 to the Town limit, Virtue Road from Turkey Creek Road to the flashing beacon and Landing Lane. All work was completed by Rogers Group, Inc. out of Knoxville.

guestview: Gov. Bill Haslam

Mayor Ralph McGill

We have taken a couple of significant steps regarding higher education recently that we believe will improve workforce readiness. One is the establishment of an online university for the state, geared toward helping those with some college credit who want to go back and earn a degree. Another is an endowment that will provide needbased grants for more people to afford attending a commuBill nity college. Haslam The Tennessee online Western Governor Governors University Tennessee is an important step for us. Many Tennesseans have received some amount of college education but had to leave school for one reason or another. Many would like to go back and finish their course work, but some of the same situations that forced them to leave college may still exist. Or they might find going back to college difficult for different reasons now. Regardless of what caused some people to leave higher education, we want to give them every opportunity to complete a degree, and we have formed a new alliance with WGU that will help many of those Tennesseans do just that. WGU Tennessee, an accredited, online, competency-based post-secondary school, will help many Tennesseans reach their goals. The Tennessee General Assembly approved legislation

Recently, the town of Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved a letter of intent to purchase the Campbell Station Inn — also known as the Russell House — at the northwest corner of Campbell Station Road and Kingston Pike. The Capital Investment Program includes $2.6 million spread out over the next four years — for the purchase and start of stabilization, renovations and site Ralph work to McGill this home Farragut that is listMayor ed on the National Register of Historic Places. The Russell House is one of our last remaining connections to the historical significance of the Campbell’s Station area. In recent years, the house has fallen into disrepair, and the Town must act now to preserve it for the education and enjoyment of future generations. In the late 1700s, the Campbell family became the first permanent settlers of European descent to call this area home. They struggled against a hostile environment to carve a settlement out of primeval wilderness that is now known as the town of Farragut. Shortly after settling the area, Col. David Campbell built a stage coach station known as Campbell’s Station. In the early

1800s, Col. Campbell sold the property to Samuel Martin — who made many additions and changes — and then later sold to Matthew Russell. The house we see today was once known as the Campbell Station Inn and served as a favorite stopping place for families, hunters and stock drivers passing through Knoxville on their way to the west. Also playing an important role in the Civil War, the house sheltered wounded Confederate and Union soldiers during the Battle of Campbell Station, fought in this area on Nov. 16, 1863. A private residence since just before the Civil War, the house now has the opportunity to be open to the public in the future. After the home is purchased, the FBMA and Town staff will begin the process of determining its future use. In addition, we plan to mount a fundraising effort with a goal of securing $1 million to offset some of the costs to purchase and renovate the home. We will have more to say about the fundraising efforts later, so stay tuned. As citizens, I encourage you to stay informed about upcoming discussions and plans for the house. The FBMA meets at 7 p.m., the second and fourth Thursdays, at the Farragut Town Hall, and the agendas are available at the week prior to the meetings (click the Agendas & Minutes link on the homepage). Thank you for your continued support of and participation in our great Town.


there with less side effects in dealing with cancer is just phenomenal. And it’s right here in Knoxville, so more and more people will be able to be treated. I think it’s phenomenal.” Smoak said he looks forward to seeing the center open. “I know patients around here and all over the country will probably be coming here to Knoxville to utilize this facility,” he said. “I think it’s going to be just a great asset to our community.”

late the damage, if you will,” he said. “I mean to be able to be very specific on the treatment, that’s spectacular.” Town administrator David Smoak said it was a great event. “I think certainly more and more people need to know about proton therapy,” Smoak said. “... I think most everybody’s been touched by cancer in some way, shape or form. And knowing that there is a better technology out


this year that allows us to establish this option for people to finish college. The university uses a model called competency-based education. Instead of earning credit based on time spent in class, students are required to demonstrate competency in the subject matter. They write papers, complete assignments and pass tests that show their knowledge of the subject. Students are guided by faculty mentors. The process is designed to allow students to schedule their studies around work and family obligations. It’s also affordable, with tuition about $6,000 per year for most programs. WGU President Robert W. Mendenhall and I formally signed a memorandum of understanding at an event this month in Nashville to establish the school. WGU offers accredited bachelor’s and master’s degree programs in business, K-12 teacher education, information technology and health professions, including nursing. Western Governors University has similar partnerships with Indiana, Washington, Texas and Missouri. WGU Tennessee is open to all qualified Tennessee residents. The first chancellor of WGU Tennessee is Dr. Kimberly Estep, who previously served as vice president for academic affairs and student services at Nashville State Community College. She has more than 25 years of experience in higher education as a professor and administrator. The school will have an advisory board of senior business, community and higher education leaders, including board chairman John Ingram, who is chairman and CEO of Ingram Industries in Nashville. WGU Tennessee is set up with a one-time appropriation from

the state of $5 million and a $750,000 grant from the Bill & Melinda Gates Foundation. After the initial startup of the university, WGU Tennessee will be self-sustaining. Meanwhile, I formally signed legislation this month that allows us to establish an endowment through the Tennessee Student Assistance Corporation of at least $35 million to produce need-based grants. The grants, designed for community college students, would go directly to the institutions the students would attend. This is a way to directly address the cost of post-secondary education, which can be a barrier to many students and their families. We need to make it affordable for students to further their education. These steps are part of our “Drive to 55” initiative. The goal is for Tennessee to have 55 percent of its adult citizens with some type of college degree by 2025. We have a long way to go, because we are currently at only 32 percent. Reaching our goal will require several different approaches, and we’re excited that WGU Tennessee and the grants for community college can be among them. Since I’ve been governor, we have constantly heard from employers that they will need more highly trained Tennesseans if we are to meet the workforce needs of the future. We are determined to do all we can to meet those demands. WGU Tennessee and need-based grants are excellent ways for many Tennesseans to get degrees that were out of their reach before. It will be a boost for them and their families, and it will be a big boost for Tennessee.

• This is a request addressed to bikers (those who pedal): It makes for a simple extension of courtesy when riding on the sidewalks and coming up on someone walking — vocalize an alert for coming from behind. I was walking on the sidewalk along Grigsby Chapel Road. A biker, also on the sidewalk, zoomed by on my right side. If I had made

just a slight movement to my right as he was coming by, it would have been a collision that could have made for a very messy accident with injuries. This was not a first-time occurrence for such rudeness. Bikers, don’t be bashful. Give a shout. Thank you. • I wanted to warn my fellow Farragutians of a telephone scam. A fast-talking man

Farragut families support of orphans grows ■


Farragut families are taking outreach to a new level by supporting an orphanage for children in Malawi, Africa. “The whole idea of this is to have a mother and father and their own children … they really want a model for these kids what a family is supposed to look like,” Lytle Rather said. It took two years of planning and building, finally the cottages became occupied in fall 2012 thanks to the Rather and Mohler families. Now, three cottages are homes to 31 children, and more plan on joining the families in the near future. Expanding families means more cottage construction, but the families are ready to take on the project. “The leverage we have with our dollars over there is unreal,” he added. Both families continue to brainstorm ways to help those in need across the globe and are

already checking dates on the calendars as to when they can return to Malawi. “That’s another part of the mission. We are looking at not just going over there for a mission trip and never going back. We know these kids. We know their names, they know us, and we want to help them all the way through until they go through school … we definitely plan on going back,” Rather said. Lytle, Susan, Callie, 20, Sarah, 17, and Alexander, 15, Rather made the 36-hour trip to southeastern Africa Thursday, May 30 and stayed through the following Sunday, May 9. The week spent in the orphanages included playing games with the children, spending time with the families, painting the bare walls of the orphanages, providing household items and attending worship services. This was the family’s first time in a culture without any sort of electricity or run-

Fashion Camp a smash hit


The fashion world is a world many young girls do not have much knowledge about, but Bayer Properties of Turkey Creek changed that stereotype for West Knox County by hosting Fashion Camp. Kiley Fleenor, marketing manager for the Pinnacle at Turkey Creek, thinks it is important to implement etiquette and self-upkeep in girls as early as possible. “I just think for children, especially girls, it’s a very impressionable age. We really want to teach them skills they will carry with them … and guide the girls in a positive way,” Fleenor said. Ten-year-old camper Mollie Smith enjoyed all the camp had to offer.

“I think it’s a very fun chance to just interact with friends and just do fashion. I think my favorite part was meeting everyone, like a new experience,” Mollie said. Making new friends seemed to be the favorite aspect of the entire camp. “I liked it a lot, because I got to make new friends,” Hunter Caldwell, 12, said. The week ended with a fashion show for the family and friends of the campers. The girls had the opportunity to show off their new style, speaking techniques and manners in a runway-staged setting. “She has had such a fabulous time here. She just loves it,” Wendy Caldwell said about here daughter. See FASHION on Page 10A

The 2004 Farragut High School graduate said she grew up in a home where she was not allowed to watch much TV. “They were really picky about the music I listened to, and at the time, Mariah’s music was very classy and elegant and fun,” Sky said. “So they were OK with letting me listen to that, so I became very just attached to her music at that time.” Sky said she first got interested in music when she was about 8 years old, with Mariah Carey’s “Music Box” album.

Feasting on Myth? Champagne and caviar. A dry red wine with dark chocolate. The list can go on, with the comm o n t h e m e being that a number of rather revered food and wine pairings run counter to Fruit at least a few fundaof the mental vine rules of the "correct" way to do so. Furthermore, arguing the merits of these entrenched pairings to a wine pairing "expert" will likely engender the following two responses - (1) you will be ignored; (2) you will be told why you are wrong. So what exactly is the right answer when it comes to food and wine pairing? The truth is that there is no definitive right answer, but merely guidelines that - if followed - may lead to a combination that in practice has led to an enhanced dining experience. These guidelines include matching the weight of the food with the body of wine; considering the structural components of the food and how they interact with corresponding wine elements (i.e. wine paired with sweet dishes should have equal/higher swe-etness; umami enhances the bitterness of oak in wines; high-acid wines for high acid dishes; red meat balanced by salt with a high-tannic red etc.); and identifying the strongest ingredient in the dish in which to focus a pairing decision (ex. garlic chicken is defined by

its garlic component). If these primary guidelines are met, then matching/contrasting the flavors of a dish with the flavors of the wines (ex. fish with lemon-herb sauce against the grassiness of a Sauvignon Blanc, let’s say) can lead to an even greater sensory experience. Subsequently, a few renowned pairings (oysters with Muscadet, duck with red Burgundy, a crisp salad with a Provencal rose) make perfect sense when seen through a pairing prism. From here the adventurous diner can choose to go in few less-traveled directions, whether it be choosing the food to match the specific wine, or, along the same lines, to balance a dish in a certain way - the judicious use of salt and lemon, for example - to make it more amenable to a certain wine you just feel like having. It is this latter point that brings us full circle, in that the goal of food and wine pairing, if one is thinking correctly, is to bring joy to the person having the experience, and enjoyment can come in many guises, rules followed or otherwise. (The black wine of Cahors and Trout Meuniere is a revered regional pairing, for example, yet breaking it down can bring some bewilderment!) So take the guidelines for what they are, go forth and explore, and maybe even try something different. And should you have any questions, the staff at Corks is always ready to help in any way we can. Cheers! v/r, Kenneth Go, CSW & Ryan McElveen, Certified Sommelier Corks Wine & Spirits

Feeding the Squeamish One of my adult relatives who shall remain nameless has SES (Squeamish Eater Syndrome). I love her in spite of her affliction. As a mother, I’m familiar with sque a m i s h eaters. Out of my three kids, only one was a real squeamer, Joanna. The list of Pam foods that Young could bring Make it on her gag Fun! reflex was endless. The best way to get the gaggers into her, with their valuable vitamins and nutrients, was to buy a food processor and purée the identity out of them. Most children are not as bad as Joanna was and I’m pleased to report that as an adult, she has made friends with many of her childhood food enemies. As adults, most of us have a fairly tolerant palate, but there is a line that is drawn somewhere right around giblets. That’s probably why we call them giblets and not vital chicken organs, and why we call squid, calamari, and calves, veal. I think the reason American restaurants list snails on the appetizer fare as “Escargot” is because they know that if their menus read “SNAILS,” they’d have zero takers. While this goes on in the States, I wonder if it happens in France. Since I’ve never been there, I wonder if French menus use English words like “SNAILS” or even “SLUGS WITH A SHELL” in the poshest, candlelit establishments, luring French–born, nonEnglish-speaking diners into orders that would never happen if the menus read “ESCARGOT.” On a personal note, I’ve learned

in feeding the squeamish, including my relative, that they’ll eat and enjoy many foods as long as they don’t know what they’re eating. Since I’m on a low-carb, high fat diet these days and my lowcarb doctor has recommended eating organ meats, I dug into my recipe collection and found this note: “Not very popular, even with the most daredevilsh eaters, because a plate of chicken hearts, no matter how delicious, looks more like a serving of marinated rabbit droppings.” I remembered while wrapping up yummy leftover coronary organs after several parties, I’d thought up the idea of hiding the delicious little delicacies in a tasty mushroom camouflage. After taking a tray of these extraordinary appetizers to a party or serving them in your own home, you’ll be bombarded with praise—unless of course your guests don’t like mushrooms. Mushrooms with a Heart 36 medium-sized mushrooms 1 tablespoon coconut oil 1 tablespoon vinegar 1/2 cup white wine 1/2 cup chopped onion 2 cloves of garlic minced 36 chicken hearts (3/4 pound to 1 pound) Topping: 1/2 teaspoon Lawry’s Seasoned Salt Juice of 1 clove of garlic pressed in garlic press 1/4 teaspoon pepper 1 tablespoon Worcestershire Sauce 6 ounces Philadelphia Brand Cream Cheese, softened 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese 1. Wash the mushrooms and pop out the stems. Set both aside. 2. In a large skillet, heat the oil, vinegar, white wine, garlic and onions over medium heat, mixing thoroughly. Add the chicken hearts, mushrooms, and stems.

Cover and simmer 10 minutes. 3. Remove the mushrooms with a slotted spoon. Continue cooking the chicken hearts and stems for another 20 minutes, or until hearts are tender. Remove chicken hearts with the slotted spoon. Cool. 4. Pour leftover contents of skillet into a food processor and puree. Pour mixture into a small bowl with the seasoned salt, gar-

lic, pepper, Worcestershire Sauce, cream cheese, and Parmesan cheese. 5. Stuff a heart in each mushroom cavity and hide each one with the cheese topping. Just before serving, place under the broiler until the topping bubbles and browns slightly. I don’t usually share recipes in my Young@Heart essays, but remembering and looking up this

sneaky recipe made me want to share it with you. For more from Pam Young go to You’ll find many musings, videos of Pam in the kitchen preparing delicious meals, videos on how to get organized, ways to lose weight and get your finances in order, all from a reformed SLOB’s point of view.

FHS From page 5A

The singer-songwriter said she gets the inspiration for her songwriting from the experiences of herself and her friends. Her single currently is “Question Mark,” she said. “It’s talking about, really the biggest part of it is when you

first meet somebody, you’re excited,” she said. “You’ve got a crush on the person, but you really don’t know how to say it. ... I’m pretty much calling him a question mark because he’s someone who I can’t tell if he likes me back or if he’s a guy who will give me the runaround.” Her experiences also informed the album title choice.

“‘License II Love,’ it just described pretty much all the different chapters in my life as a young woman that I’ve gone through, the experiences, the relationships, the ups and the downs,” she said. “... I went through the experiences and the handbook to get my license now.”

Fashion From page 5A

Fleenor is already thinking about next year’s camp. “It’s been great … more fun than I ever dreamed. It’s been fun to watch them blossom and their confidence level this week. This is definitely just the starting point.” Fashion Camp was held in a vacant store in the Pinnacle at Turkey Creek Monday, July 15 through Friday, July 19. Stores such as Charming Charlie, Loft,

Chico’s participated to show the girls, ages nine to twelve, different fashion techniques. These included anything from how to tie a scarf to how to wear one outfit three different ways to save money. Spas such as Belleza also took their time to demonstrate proper hair, skin and nail care for the tweens. Other events throughout the week included etiquette classes, nutrition classes, modeling sessions and a special guest speaker. Miss Tennessee USA came out to speak with the girls about inner and

outer beauty and what it takes to be successful. Fashion does not just apply to clothing according to image coach and camp facilitator Sherry Ailor. Body image, health care and etiquette are all factors in the world of fashion, as the girls learned during the weeklong camp. More information on the camp is coming soon to a new website through .

Camper Ryan Lorick, 12, receives help from Farragut High School Robotics Team member Tanner Hobson, 17, at FHS’s third annual Robotics Camp. Lorick is saughtering, just one of many steps in building his micro-bug robot.

FHS robotics camp a success ■


Farragut High School’s Robotics Team constructed another summer camp success for rising seventh, eight and ninth graders at the Career and Technical Education building June 10-14. “We started it because we wanted to allow some of the younger students to connect with the high school students and inspire them to get involved with engineering and robotics,” FHS Robotics Team teacher sponsor and engineering teacher Jill Hudson said. Techniques learned throughout the weekday camp included sautering, solid work exploration and computer programming, just to name a few. “[We do] a lot of fun hands on activities. It’s really fun to see the students learn how to do things they’ve never tried before that are considered fairly hard tasks, like sautering. It gives them the confidence to try new things and go ahead and dive in,” Hudson said. Many of the campers have dreams of becoming engineers one day, such as 13-year-old Christopher Ferren. “It’s what I enjoy to do and I want to do when I grow up … I want to be an engineer like my father,” Ferren said. The enthusiasm is evident throughout the lab while the campers make their micro bug robots. “So far I like everything.

Everything is my favorite … it makes me feel like I am worthy of being an engineer,” said 12-yearold Ryan Lorick on the second day of camp. The end of the week’s itinerary included presentations from the First Lego League, a “pre-cursor” to the robotics program at the high school, as well as members of the FHS Robotics Team to try to recruit campers. “Some may be involved with FLL or may chose to be involved. We’ve also had some after they come here as a ninth grader to take engineering, so it promotes us as well,” Hudson said. “It’s so exciting … I just love the hands on. I love to see them like grown ups. They’re smart kids … it’s great when you get them to a point where they’re so highly focused on a task. It’s inspiring,” Hudson added. This is the team’s third annual summer camp, and it seems to grow in popularity and interest with every passing year. Activities range from beginner’s presentations to building their own robots to take home. This year, the two robots constructed included a micro bug robot, which crawls around when powered by light, and sumo robot, where a little more programming is used to design fighting tactics. Hudson organizes the camp each year alongside Jane Skinner and David Galaska. FHS robotics members also assist with the camp.

Choo named Haslam Scholar at UT ■ ROBBY O’DANIEL

Esther Choo, a 2013 Farragut High School graduate, was named a Haslam Scholar at The University of Tennessee. Choo, 17, said she was honored. “I was absolutely elated,” she said in an e-mail interview. “It's such a prestigious program.” Becoming a Haslam Scholar was a key part of her decision to attend The University of Tennessee, she said. “The chance to become a Haslam Scholar really determined my decision,” she said. “It was an opportunity I couldn't turn down.” She was born in Chicago, she said. “After Chicago, I moved to New Mexico when I was young,” she said. “A few years later, I moved to Tennessee and haven't left since. ... I've lived in Knoxville, Tenn., for about 13 years now.” She plans to major in chemistry and study pre-med, she said. “I was originally planning on majoring in my father's field of work, but later I decided to commit to another major,” she said. “He and the rest of my family have been amazing supporters.” For the past two years, she has been Knoxville Symphony Youth Orchestra’s principle cellist, she said. “It was one of the best experi-

ences I have encountered,” she said. “KSYO was itself a great experience, but having the opportunity to lead my section was such an honor.” She has since graduated from KSYO. She said she started playing the cello when she was 9 years old. “I originally wanted to do the violin, but I was convinced otherwise,” she said. “I don't regret my decision though.” Since last summer, she has served as a research intern at UT’s Scintillation Materials Research Center, she said. “It was also an exciting experience,” she said. “I'm thankful that I was given the opportunity to research about scintillation and materials science and to meet such intelligent and amazing people there.” She said she is mostly excited about entering college in the fall. “Although I don't really know what to expect,” she said. “I'm excited to spend my time with my fellow Haslam Scholars and spend time learning interesting topics and meeting new people.” A university press release stated, “The university’s premier, four-year scholarship program, the Haslam Scholars Program admits up to fifteen first-year students each year from the university-wide Chancellor’s Honors Program and supports them with the university’s most generous named scholarships.”

The school's rapidgrowth stems from its dedication to providing convenient classes and top quality instruction to students of all ages. The quality of the staffs instruction and the enthusiasm of their students were evident at the professional production put on by both studios at the school's Spring Concert in May. Over 2000 people at- tended this annual event at the Knoxville Civic Auditorium. Each year the school has added members to its teaching staff and has upgraded its facilities by purchasing equipment and regularly renovating. In August of 2008, the 2nd location, Angela Floyd School for Dance and Music, started classes in a new 5000 square foot building located at 6B2 Jubilee Center Way off of Callahan Road, next to the Jubilee Banquet FaciliQ. The combined Angela Floyd Schools are the largest dance and music schools in Knoxville. Expanded Class Choices Save Time for Busy Families School Director Floyd says that many of the parents choose the schoolbecause, in addition to having excellent teachers and programs, it enables parents to have one child in music lessons while another child is in dance classes. Both AFS Knoxville facilities have four individual music rooms and two extra large dance studios, making it possible for parents to have two, three, or even four students in different lessons during the same time. The schools offer many evening and weekend classes to accommodate more students in convenient class times. Between the pressures of homework, sports, and family time, a lot of parents can be overwhelmed by tyng to fit in all the activities. Floyd says that many parents and children are so busy that saving forty five minutes to an hour of commuting time a week between activities rea1lyhelps the typical familys schedule.

New Staff and Programs The Angela Floyd Schools has an incredible staff ready to begin this fall. Between the two schools, there are over 30 staff members. All of the dance and music teachers have pro- fessional andlor university experience in the styles of dance and music that they teach. The school teaches a variety of dance and music students ranging from 2 year old beginners to advanced, university level students. With a diversegroup of instructors on staff, the school is able to place its students with the teachers who best meet their needs and relate well with them.

Large Variety of Dance and Music Classes The school's music program offers piano, guitar, drums, violin, viola, cello, bass and voice lessons in a variety of musi-cal styles such as pop, jazz, rock, and contemporary. The main focus of the staff is helping students obtain the skills they need to enjoy music long after the lessons are over. In fact, School Director Floyd says that the mission of the school is 'To provide students of all ages with the skills they need to enjoy music and dance for their lifetime.'' One exciting fea- ture of the music program is the ability to record lessons on CD for sbdents to take home and enjoy. In addition to private music lessons, both AFS locations are now offering Music FunTime, a group music class for ages 2-7. AFS is also home to the Angela Floyd Singers, an a cappella group that shares pop music with the community at events dl over the Knoxville area.Al1 music students are invited to participate in a professional, semiannual recital at the Relix Variety Theatre, showcasing their prowess and passion for music. The school's dance program offers everything from hiphop andjazz classes to classical ballet and tap dance. Additiondly, the school hosts a specialized preschool program, starting dancers as young as 2 in a ballet and tap combination class. AFS is also hstTennesseels source for the Angelina Bal- lerina Dance Academy for ages 35.Another successful addition to the dance program is the Tumble for Dancers Class, available at both location sfor ages 2 & up. Dance classes are offewd morning, afternoon, evening and on Saturdays to help busy families fit everything into their schedule. Students are encouraged to have fun while expanding their skills. Dance also provides a fun way to encourage physical activity. Both the West Knoxville and North Knoxville locations are home to the award winning Angela Floyd Dance Company, providing superior training for competitive dancers.

Facilities Offer Extra Benefits for Dancers One of the most important features of a dance studio is the type of flooring used. Unlike most other dance studios that lay Marley or hardwood over cement surfaces, The Angela Floyd Schools use floating Marley floors which have hundreds of compression foam blocks under the surface that absorb the impact of dancing and help keep the teachers and stu- dents safe. It is a great form of injury avoidance and the most professional dance floor available.

ning water, and as Callie explained, it changed their perspective of everyday life. “It really taught me that in every moment be thankful,” Callie said. Lytle Rather, a 1982 Farragut High School graduate, Farragut resident and local business owner, received a phone call two and a half years ago from his longtime friend Mike Mohler, also a FHS graduate, to take part in the mission. Rather approached his wife, Susan, a 1983 FHS grad, and his children about the idea, and everyone wanted to take part. The vision was to provide homes for

orphaned children and place a qualified couple to serve as the cottage parents. Each cottage would need to fit up to 12 children and the parents, forming a family out of each cottage. Some of the parents chosen to live in the cottages already have children of their own, ensuring a family atmosphere from the very beginning. The family agrees that it was the most unique of their experiences together, but that does not mean they are through with the mission. They see the cottages evolving enough to sustain as their own village one day with more than 200 kids, and the idea of a school is even in conversation.

Villas eye October opening ■


The target date for the grand opening of The Villas at Anchor Park, located along Turkey Creek Road, is early October. “First of all, we are very excited to be offering this product to Knoxvillians, in particular Farragut, Lenoir City and Oak Ridgers,” said Johnnie Creel, founding partner of Keller Williams Realty and exclusive broker for The Villas at Anchor Park. “That’s what we think our demographic will be. We expect, mostly, baby boomers, downsizers, but we think it’s also a good product for young professionals and singles and parents with a child or two. But our main demographic is baby boomers, downsizers and young professionals.” She described The Villas as “upscale, main-level living.” “Our first phase will be 32 units, and they will be duplexes, so that they will have three sides of light,” she said. “The interior wall will be doubled and fully insulated for no sound penetration. ... We’re very excited about the location too because there’s really nothing available right now like what we’re offering. They’ll be all brick and stone, so that they will be very low maintenance, almost no maintenance.” Creel said each individual unit will start at $350,000, and

A ribbon cutting took place Friday, July 26 at The Villas at Anchor Park, located along Turkey Creek Road. Todd Johnson, with project developer TJ Development, cut the ribbon.

the target price is $350,000 to $450,000. “We’re expecting this to be the most successful downsizing development and even secondhome development for a long time, maybe for a decade, in Farragut,” she said. “... We’re already getting calls from Oak Ridgers, Lenoir City and from all of Farragut. It’s going to be an ideal downsizing experience because we’re having upscale amenities that people are used to in their larger homes in the neighborhoods around Farragut

particularly.” Popular floor plans, quality of construction and location make The Villas stand out, she said. “Its accessibility to the interstate, for anybody going east or west on the interstate, it’s very close,” she said. “Shopping is tremendous. Turkey Creek is less than 10 minutes away, Turkey Creek shopping. Grocery shopping is all around. ... It couldn’t be a better location. That’s what we have heard from the public is that they love the location.” The Villas has attracted much

interest, she said. “We want it to be a very smooth transition,” she said. “It’s already not easy to make the decision to downsize, and so what we’re hoping is we’ll make this transition smooth, and they’ll be delighted with their moves. “We want it to be a great community. We’re going to offer group activities. Wine tastings, we’re helping coordinate. We’re going to have a community newsletter.”

Cozy Joe's Cafe and Coffee Loft celebrates grand opening


Rob Dougherty, Cozy Joe’s Cafe and Coffee Loft owner, called his business a marriage of the coffee shop and sandwich shop concepts. “We looked at the community and really, what was around here and more specifically, what wasn’t,” Dougherty said. “... It seemed like the area needed more food service, and there was nothing like what we’re doing around. We do gourmet coffee, soups, salads, sandwiches, lighter fare.” Cozy Joe’s Cafe and Coffee Loft, located at 2559 Willow Point Way, had its grand opening event

Friday, June 21, though the business opened in March, he said. “We started with a soft opening just to kind of get our systems in line, and it’s been busier every week,” he said. “Week-over-week sales are continually growing.” The business’ signature breakfast sandwich is The Crusher, he said. “It’s a croissant we cut and put in your choice of bacon, ham or sausage and cheese, and then we dip it in liquid egg and put it in a panini press and crush it,” he said. The Crusher sells well, he said, as does chicken salad. “We do a lot of chicken salad,” he said. “We do a chicken salad sandwich on a croissant, or some

people add it to their house salad.” In terms of coffee, the business has a variety. “We rotate probably 10 or 12 varieties of specialty roasts,” he said. The business serves breakfast, lunch and dinner, Dougherty said. “It’s really the same menu for lunch and dinner, and my original idea was to just stay open for breakfast and lunch, but with the coffee shop piece of it, those folks like to come in the late afternoon to get a cup of coffee, so we’re staying open a little later,” he said. The name of the business came from both the coffee and the

atmosphere, he said. “Obviously Joe’s is coffee, and we’ve got two fireplaces, so it’s a cozy atmosphere, good coffee, good food,” he said. There is a drive thru and private meeting space available, he said. “We’ve got an upstairs room with a fireplace and comfortable seating, and we can handle private parties from eight to 30 people,” he said. Dougherty mentioned ways the business’s food stands out. “We do everything from scratch, and we’re just fanatical about the quality of everything that goes out,” he said. “We’ve got something on the menu for everybody.”

Farragut area swimmers compete at ‘city meet’ ■

KEN LAY Correspondent

Concord Hills Recreation Association’s boys 15-18 year-old 200yard freestyle relay team went out with a bang at the 2013 Greater Knoxville Area Interclub Swimming Association’s City Championship Meet Sunday, July 28. The quartet of Kent Eldreth, Tyler Johnson, Ben Haney and Sam Schecter won the meet’s final event and helped Concord Hills secure a third-place finish in the three-day event before a packed house at The University of Tennessee’s Allan Jones Intercollegiate Aquatic Center. “My teammates are great and I couldn’t have done this without them,” Schecter said after swimming the anchor leg of the relay, which the team completed in 1 minute, 26.51 seconds. “Three of us are seniors and we reached back and got a little more. “We came in here and we were supposed to finish in eighth or ninth place and we finished third. It was a total team effort.” The three recent Farragut High School graduates (Schecter, Johnson and Eldreth) have been teammates for several years on both club teams and with the Admirals, may not quite be finished competing together. All will continue their respective swimming careers at CarsonNewman next season. Haney, a rising junior and swimmer at Lenoir City High School, joined the Concord Hills swim squad a year-and-a-half ago, and quickly found a home with his new team. “I have great teammates and I’ve learned everything from them,” Haney said. “Being the new guy has been stressful and rough at times but we’re really tight and our team chemistry has just been great. “They’re great teammates and we have great coaches. My coaches have really helped me out over the last year-and-a-half. We’re like a family.” The other members of the relay team also acknowledge the team’s chemistry. “This has been great,” Johnson said. “I’ve swam with Sam and

Kent for six or seven years and Ben’s been with us for the last year-and-a-half and you just couldn’t ask for better guys.” Concord Hills finished third with 1,583 points. Knoxville Racquet Club won the event with 1,847 points. Green Meadow was second (1,765.5) and Village Green, another area club took fourth (1,525.50 points). The Sugarwood Stingrays finished 13th (470). Fox Den was 14th (458) and the Gettysvue Gliders placed 17th (386.5 points). The final day was filled with stellar marks for local swimmers but it was the 15-18 year old relay team that really stole the show for Concord Hills. The quartet of Schecter, Johnson, Eldreth and Haney took third in the 200-yard medley relay with a time of 1:38.03. Village Green’s team of Chris Glaf-enhein, Sam Melhorn, Walker Higgins and Connor Cygan took fourth (1:39.44). Concord Hills coach Mike Bowman said he was proud of his team’s performance. “I’m extremely pleased with the way we swam,” he said. “Our 200 free relay team was great. “We swam lights out today.” Concord Hills won the 8-andunder 100-yard freestyle relay as the team of Quinn Kustin, Julia Mason, Abigail King and Tanner completed the race in 1 minute, 7.46 seconds. Fox Den (Reese Kenney, Tripp Lodge, Lizzie Kerr and Kate Rogers) posted a time of 1:13.42. Village Green (Daniel Bao, Claire Wingard, Leo Karnitz and Elizabeth Martin) finished seventh (1:13.90). Two area teams posted high marks in the mixed 11-12 100 free relay. Village Green’s team of Marissa Van Leuven, Erin Briggs, Parker Records and Paul Menard finished second with a time of 1:53.11. Gettysvue’s team of Joseph Tornstrom, Payton Benko, Daniel Eshleman and Macy Hudson finished seventh (1:56.42). In the 13-14 Mixed 100-yard free relay, Gettysvue (Nathan Benko, Kloee Keener, Kaylor Susong and Ty Chandler) finished fifth (1:45.35). In the 15-18 Mixed Freestyle,
