Farragut election results Redflex loses suit

Political signage dominates this grassy entrance island to Farragut Middle School voting precinct 65 during Election Day,


While Knox County’s Aug. 2 Election Day lacked buzz thanks to several unopposed races and predicted blowouts, there were striking results from Farragut’s 66 North and 65 North precincts. Meanwhile, for unopposed Fifth District Board of Education representative Karen Carson, finishing this cycle of elections is a relief. “I’ve never liked the campaign process at all,” said Carson, who begins her third term on school board since 2004, joining Republicans Phil Ballard

(incumbent property assessor) and Richard “Bud” Armstrong (new law director) among Knox County elected officials taking office after running unopposed in August. In Republican primary for the new 89th District, state House of Representatives (district includes tiny portions of Farragut and all of Hardin Valley), Roger Kane defeated runner-up Tim Hutchison, former multi-term Knox County Sheriff, 42.33 versus 28.13 among a four-candidate field. However, in 66N (944 people voting at Farragut High School), Hutchison received 47.54 per-

cent versus Kane’s 29.51. At 65N (180 voting at Farragut Middle School), Kane and Hutchison tied at 33.12 percent. While third-place finisher Joey McCulley topped William G. “Bo” Pierce 15.83 percent versus 13.82 district-wide, Pierce finished ahead of McCulley in 65N, 19.48 percent versus 14.29. In 66N, the pair each finished with 11.48 percent. Park Overall, Democratic U.S. Senate challenger to GOP incumbent Bob Corker, won easily while receiving 42.52 percent of Knox County’s vote. Though Democratic runner-up Mark E. Clayton received just

17.88 percent countywide, Clayton actually finished ahead in 66N (28.81 versus Overall’s 25.42). However, Overall was overwhelming in 66N with 55.56 percent, precinct 65 (935 votes cast at Farragut Middle School) with 45.83 percent versus 22.22 and 66S (38.71 versus 18.28). Corker rolled to an easy primary victory and received 81.14 percent of Knox County votes. In Farragut’s precincts, Corker’s high mark was 88.90 in 66N versus his lowest, 80.25 in 65N.

Town creates sustainability office, BOMA updated


One of the Town’s newest employees updated Farragut’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen on details of her job and her goals Thursday evening, July 26. Sustainability coordinator Lori Saal said, “The goal of sustainability and creating a sustainable community is to find a balance between economic development, environmental

awareness and social responsibility. “If we’re able to do that we can basically have a sustainable community for our current generation as well as future generations,” she added. Since Saal began work at the Town earlier this year, she has created web pages for Farragut’s sustainability office (at, under the “Department” and “Administration” tabs) and has

written and adopted a sustainability strategic plan. In the strategic plan, Saal said she hopes to achieve a dozen goals in the next fiscal year, including installing recycling bins in Town park and facilities, supporting the proposed outdoor classroom near Farragut High School and evaluating the concept of offering recycling or “green” infrastructure incentives and certifications to businesses in Town.

Also high on the list is developing a franchise agreement to provide single stream curbside waste and recycling to Farragut residents. That item is one Saal is “working most heavily on right now.” “I’m picking up where the recycling committee left off,” she added. In addition, Saal said she has started a Farragut sustainability See SAAL on Page 3A


The future of Farragut’s redlight camera system could be unsure after Knox County Chancellor Michael Moyers upheld Tennessee’s law that prohibits fining drivers for illegal right turns on red via traffic cameras. “The Town is not going to appeal,” Tom Hale, Farragut town attorney, said. Andrea Akers, a Redflex spokesperson, said in an e-mail, “We don’t have plans to appeal at this time.” Farragut was sued last year by its camera system vendor Redflex. Redflex eventually included the state in the suit and joined a similar suit against the City of Knoxville by its vendor, American Traffic Solutions. The suit asked the Chancellor to rule the state law, Public Act 425, unconstitutional. “Redflex avers that prohibiting local law enforcement officials from using video evidence in these circumstances lacks a rational basis,” the lawsuit stated, adding elsewhere, “and [it] does not advance a legitimate governmental purpose.” The suit sought a decision either that Public Act 425 does not apply to existing contracts — such as Redflex’s with Farragut — or that it is unconstitutional because it does. State law protects companies against retrospective laws that would impair already-existing contracts. “It’s too early to determine how this ruling could impact safety cameras in Farragut. We have enjoyed a good working relationship with the Town of Farragut and look forward to strengthening this relationship in the future,” Akers said. Farragut has complied with See REDFLEX on Page 3A

Saal also challenged Board members to keep sustainability in mind when discussing the future of Farragut. “The Board will be faced with many sustainability-related issues,” she said. Those issues could include public transportation, such as the KAT Express route, capital improvements such as streetlights and even land use. Alderman Bob Markli congratulated Saal on her work.

high of 10.59 percent in precinct 65. His Farragut low total was 9.80 at 66N. Troy Christopher Goodale, Duncan’s Democrat opponent in November, was unopposed. Other state primary races found incumbent state Sen. Becky Duncan Massey (R-Sixth District) and incumbent state Rep. Ryan Haynes (R-District 14) unopposed. Haynes will take on Democrat Jerome Q. Miller, also unopposed, in Nov. 6 Presidential, U.S. House and Senate and state of Tennessee general election. Massey will square off against Democrat Evelyn Gill, also unopposed in the primary.

LCUB approves department budgets

“Make us a better Town,” he said. In other business, the Board: • Approved a resolution supporting a Veterans Administration hospital in Roane County, support for which was requested by the City of Harriman. • Approved, on second and final reading, an ordinance to amend fiscal year 2013 capital investment program budget to reflect cashed letters of credit and a project being rolled over from FY 2012. • Appointed Kristin Baksa and Gina Inklebarger to Farragut’s Stormwater Advisory Committee • Approved special event signage for the News Sentinel Open Presented by Pilot, which will be held at Fox Den Country Club Aug. 19-26.

The budgets were approved without rate increases despite gas revenues being down due to the record-warm winter and historic issues with the sewer budget. “I’m here to say I think the sewer department has turned

Councilman Eddie Simpson said he believed the positive cash flow in budgets this year was the payoff of substantial rate increases in the sewer and water departments about three years ago.

guestview: BPL Until the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen (BOMA) vote on July 12, the town of Farragut has never operated a formal process to compile an accurate, complete list of businesses that physically operate within its limits. Through David much Smoak discusFarragut Town sion A d m inistrator amongst Town officials and staff, advisory committees, the business community and citizens, the BOMA voted that the new business privilege license program is a fiscal necessity and a service necessity for our Town. The business privilege license — offered with no fee through Oct. 12, or 90 days following the July 12 vote — has a two-fold purpose. Since the town of Farragut does not levy a Property Tax, Sales Tax revenue is the Town’s main funding source. The fiscal necessity of maintaining a comprehensive business listing is to ensure our proper share of Sales Tax revenue from the state of Tennessee. In addition, the service necessity of a comprehensive business listing is to ensure the Town can effectively communicate with its businesses. Those businesses that do not apply for the license by Oct. 12 will incur a onetime $15 fee. Businesses that renew their license


annually and on time will never incur an additional fee. I want to ensure our businesses and citizens that the business privilege license is not meant to be punitive, costly or just a plain hassle to our business owners and service providers. The program is meant to be a benefit to both the Town and the businesses, keeping us connected and making sure we get our complete share of the all-important Sales Tax revenue that Farragut depends on for 70 percent of our total revenue. This revenue ensures the Town can continue providing excellent services to its citizens, including major road improvements, development of parks and greenways, community events, and continued support of the Farragut/West Knox Chamber and Farragut Business Alliance to help maintain and grow our strong business community. Complete information and the business privilege license application are available at Business owners — please go online or come by Town Hall to apply before Oct. 12 to avoid the one-time $15 fee. With your help, the Town will be well on its way to establishing its first-ever comprehensive business listing. On behalf of the FBMA and Town staff, I want to thank each of our businesses for choosing to operate here. We look forward to a successful future for both the Town and its businesses.



• I’m calling because of the pond that appears to have killed all the vegetation on Campbell Station Road close to the Kroger [Marketplace] shopping complex. I noticed a mother duck and her little babies walking around that pond and I also noticed a couple of kids fishing in it. I wonder why the vegetation was killed and if, in the killing of the vegetation, the ducks and fish were also killed. Thank you for listening. Editor’s Note: Cattails turn brown once seeding has occurred or the “cattail” has formed at the top of the plant. The plant then becomes compost for the next seasonal growth. Sources at Town Hall tell us there are no fish in the Kroger Marketplace detention pond. • Yesterday [Aug. 2] I went to the Turkey Creek shopping area with my two young children for a quick errand. With a young child beside me, and one in my arms, a man approached me asking (more like demanding) money. He was shaking and very agitated. I do not carry cash and said so. His demeanor was very

threatening/frightening. This has happened when I was very pregnant in a local parking lot. My thoughts were to protect my children and get away quickly. We left the parking lot immediately. I think moms with young children are targets. Is there a better effective way to deflect these situations? Editor’s Note: If the incident happened in the City of Knoxville a report could be filed with Knoxville Police Department; if this happened in the Farragut portion of the area, a report could be filed with Knox County Sheriff’s Office. Farragut has no police force. • Editorial freedom is a wonderful concept, but it does come with its responsibilities.

Solar panels pay off ■ Baldwin Park off Boring Road

The solar panels at McFee Park are recouping a little more than half the cost of the utility bills in phase two of the park, Farragut Municipal Planning Commissioners discovered during a meeting in April 19. “We’re recouping 53 percent of our bills” in the 10-month period from March to December 2011, parks and leisure services director Sue Stuhl said. “We hope to get better,” she added. McFee Park’s phase two includes solar panels installed on the roof on the large pavilion on the hill. Stuhl said the Town had a rough start with the panels because of problems with insulation as well as the heating and cooling systems in phase two at the park, and a “slight setback” after the hail storms last April.

Main St., Knoxville or Kiwanis Youth Foundation, P.O Box 232, Knoxville, TN 37901-0232. Click Funeral Home Middlebrook Chapel, 9020 Middlebrook Pike, served the Holifield family. • MCLAIN, James Lee, age 89, residing at NHC Farragut, went to be with his beloved wife and heavenly father, Aug. 1, 2012. He married Virginia Harris, the love of his life, Aug. 2, 1947. She preceded him in passing Oct. 1, 2005. He had to leave this earth Aug. 1 to keep a special date Aug. 2 to reunite for their 65th wedding anniversary celebration, which was more important than events of this world. Jim is survived by his daughter, Ginny McLain-Tate, and son-in-law, Frank Tate; numerous nieces, nephews and sister-in-law, Edie Ford. He was a decorated World War II veteran and proudly served his country in the 15th Air Force, 450th Bomb Group, as a B-24 pilot, stationed in Italy 1943-1945. He was fortunate enough to make an Honor Air trip out of Knoxville to the Washington, DC memorials in spring 2011. Jim was a graduate of The University of Tennessee, Knoxville, College of Engineering, thanks to the G.I. program. He had a successful career with a large, multinational corporation, which took his family to live in four states and a foreign country, and him to many cities, states and countries for business travel. His real life’s work began at retirement with a Radio Shack computer. He spent the next 25 years researching the genealogy of our families. He provided all members of our family with fully documented data that made possible membership in Daughters of the American Revolution, First Families of Tennessee, and many other historic organizations. He was a Christian man, who will be missed by his family and friends, especially his friends and special caregivers at NHC Farragut. The family will receive friends from 5 p.m. to 6 p.m., Friday, Aug. 10, 2012, with a memorial serv-

ice at Click Funeral Home, Farragut Chapel, 11915 Kingston Pike. Graveside rites will be at a later date at Fairview Cemetery, Newbern. • O’NEAL, Mary Faye Landrum, 75, of Knoxville, passed away Aug. 1, 2012 at Parkwest Medical Center in the company of children, grandchildren and siblings. Faye’s hometown was La Fayette, Ala., where her parents were proprietors of a general store for 40 years. She graduated from Andrew College, Cuthbert, Ga., and earned her teaching certification at The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. Her first teaching job was in Conyers, Ga., where she met her future husband. While bringing up their five children, she briefly taught kindergarten at Cedar Springs Presbyterian Church and then served many years as a volunteer teacher for children’s Sunday School and vacation Bible school programs. In later years, she provided infant childcare in her home. For a large portion of her life she was a homemaker, and in that role, continued to be a teacher to her own children. What did she pass along? Help other people when they need help. Listen for what other people need and respond. People are more important than things and they are more important than your schedule: give them number one priority. Go out of your way. Try to treat everyone well. Talk to the smallest child like a fellow person, because he is one. Teach children, every time you get the chance: they will need to know the things you know. Try to follow the teachings of Jesus every day. Pray. Keep an open mind. Laugh every time you get the chance. Don’t say “can’t;” just try. Prepare for an emergency, just in case. Learn to swim. Take good care of yourself. Some things were just meant to be. Faye was an active, involved member of First Cumberland Presbyterian Church and over the years also participated in many community organizations, assisting with the founding of Gulf Park pool and serving as a long term volunteer with Gulf Park swim team, as well as school PTAs and sports programs at Cedar Bluff and Karns schools. She was an early supporter of West Knoxville youth soccer. She enjoyed years of cards with her bridge club and team bowling with

her husband. For many years, she regularly packaged groceries for FISH hunger ministry. She was known for reaching out to personally and practically help others. Where there was need, she often noticed and did something about it. Faye and Glenn were blessed with 45 years of marriage. They lived in Florence, Ala., Palo Alto, Calif., and Knoxville, where Glenn worked as a branch chief with Tennessee Valley Authority and after his retirement taught classes and prepared taxes for H&R Block Premium, Cedar Bluff Road. Faye was preceded in death by her son, Michael Glenn O’Neal (1971); her father, William Herman Landrum Sr. (2004); and her husband, Weyman Glenn O’Neal (2005). Faye is survived by her beloved mother, Mary Ethel Lindsey Landrum and all of her four siblings, who were very far apart in their ages, but very close in their hearts — lifelong friends: sister, Eva Jo (Mrs. John Edward) Thrasher; sister and brother-in-law, Helen and Jacob Barnhill; brothers and sistersin-law, Bill and Cheryl Landrum, and Bobby and Mandy Landrum; daughters and sons-in law, Glenda and Greg Tolliver, and Donna and Tom Walker; and sons and daughters-inlaw, Lindsey and Wendy Shands O’Neal, and James and Peggy Gann O’Neal; nine grandchildren. Funeral service was Saturday, Aug. 4, 2012, at First Cumberland Presbyterian Church with Dr. J. David Hester and the Rev. Kevin Wood officiating. In lieu of flowers, the family requests that donations be made to: HVAC Fund First Cumberland Presbyterian Church. On-line condolences may be extended at Arrangements by Rose Mortuary Mann Heritage Chapel. • PITTMAN, Buddy, age 82, of Knoxville, passed away Thursday, July 26, 2012.

Ruby Wright and Pauline Pate; many nieces and nephews. Funeral service was Wednesday, Aug. 1, in Click Funeral Home Middlebrook Chapel.

Gene spent 20 years working in publishing in the outdoor industry and was an avid outdoor enthusiast. He was an owner/partner in GearTrends and SNEWS trade publications. He enjoyed working with young people. He led several trips of urban youth into the wilderness as a supporter of Big City Mountaineers and coached CBFO basketball. Gene was the owner of Campbell Station Wine & Spirits. The one thing he wanted most in life was to be a dad. Gene is survived by his children, Lucas, age 20, and Katherine, age 17, Treacy; wife and mother of his children, Pamela Cannella Treacy; sisters, Anne Treacy, Barb Hoerter and her family; special cousins, Joe and Darlene Cafferata.

Parkwest pioneers tomosynthesis among area hospitals


Parkwest Medical Center is pioneering new breast cancer screening technology among Knoxville hospitals. Tomosynthesis, or threedimensional mammography, allows doctors to spot cancerous tissue more easily, resulting in fewer misdiagnoses and less stress for patients. “It’s tremendously easier to see. What you wind up doing with tomosynthesis is get rid of tissue that otherwise would have been in your way and prevented you from being able to differentiate [cancerous tissue],” said Dr. Amanda Squires, radiologist at Parkwest’s Comprehensive Breast Center. “And at the same time, I’m not getting falsely alarmed about areas that are perfectly normal,” she added. Unlike a traditional mammogram, which takes two X-rays from two different angles, digital tomosynthesis takes multiple

nomenally yummy frozen desserts. In addition to the new ownership celebration, she’ll be bringing in live music on Saturdays and offering discounts any time the U.S. wins a medal during the 2012 Olympic Summer Games in London. Founded in Nashville in 2009, Sweet CeCe’s has become one of the nation’s fastest-growing frozen yogurt dessert franchises. Visit for more information.

images from many angles. Those images are then stitched together by a computer, creating a three-dimensional image. Squires compared the differences to examining a two-plane circle and a 3D ball. A traditional mammogram compresses every level of breast tissue into one image, which can make it difficult for doctors and radiologists to separate cancerous tissues — which appear as white striations on X-rays — from distortions or superimpositions in the image itself. “The tomo actually increases

your sensitivity to find cancers while at the same time decreasing the likelihood of you calling back perfectly normal things,” Squires said. Tomosynthesis is particularly helpful for women with dense breast tissue, which is even harder to diagnose cancer through traditional mammograms, since dense breast tissue also shows white on X-rays. Patients with dense breast tissue also are at increased risk for breast cancer. “We are blinded in a lot of areas of their breasts by their

normal tissue, so for those patients, this has the biggest benefit,” Squires said. Patients can ask their doctors about the density of their breast tissue. According to Squires, the additional X-rays required for digital tomosynthesis do result in a slightly higher exposure to radiation than a standard digital mammogram, although it’s at the same exposure level as old film mammograms. “I don’t have a problem with See 3D on Page 8A

Michael Broyles is celebrating 10 years in business this year, including five years at work in his Renaissance | Farragut studio.


Michael Broyles is celebrating 10 years in business, as well as five at his photography studio in Renaissance | Farragut, this month. July 17 marked the official anniversary of the day in 2002 Broyles founded Michael Broyles Photography, which will celebrate its milestone anniversary with quarterly and monthly specials for the rest of the year. For Broyles, it’s all part of saying thanks to his customers and the community for supporting his studio, which specializes in portraiture of babies, children and families. “Working with them, I capture a memory that spans generations,” Broyles said. “Every one of my guests has a story to tell. I want to create a work of art ... more than just a snapshot,” he added. According to Broyles, his goal in portraiture is to capture personas, and it all starts by getting to know the guest.

His studio, decorated to feel more like a home, allows him to “talk with you across the kitchen table,” Broyles said. “As I work with my guests I want to become friends with them and build life-long relationships,” he added. A typical studio session isn’t about modeling, backgrounds or much else. In fact, a guest might not even be notified that photography has started. “I never say ‘One, two three, I’m taking a picture.’ While we’re interacting, I’m just snapping away. That way I capture them in a much more natural frame,” Broyles said. “My style is more to capture the person,” he added. In fact, Broyles said he hopes his photography becomes more than a memento; he hopes it becomes a legacy. “That’s my passion, my legacy: wanting to leave legacies for others. I want to create a work of art that they show to their children and their grandchildren, and it’s more than just a snapshot.” “I want to capture the persona;

the actual person,” Broyles said. After 45 years pursuing amateur print photography as a hobby, Broyles was turned onto digital photography and began selling prints in shops throughout See BROYLES on Page 9A

the dose,” Squires said. The new technology only takes a few minutes more than a standard mammogram to complete. “We’re at a position right now, for radiologists in general, that we know there are other technologies out there and we can do more for dense people,” Squires said. “I think this is going to be the way that we wind up going” in the future, she added. According to Squires, tomosyn-

thesis not only helps avert false positives but also unnecessary ultrasound follow-ups and biopsies. “That’s a tremendous cost and tremendous anxiety,” Squires said. The Breast Center is using tomosynthesis as a complement to conventional mammograms, largely because 3D mammography is not yet covered by all insurance plans. At Parkwest, the cost of the procedure is $125. For more information, visit

Fourth decade as No. 1 Sanders, veteran FDCC Ladies 18-Hole golfer, wins 6th Champ Flight title spanning 30 years


Saying her driver and putter overcompensated for bad iron and wedge play during a Fox Den Country Club Ladies 18Hole Club Championship Flight showdown Thursday, Aug. 2, Tina Sanders made it four straight decades of title glory. While adding some postmatch self-deprecating humor to culminate this three-day event. Winning her first Ladies 18Hole Club crown in 1982, Sanders edged Karen Jones 2 and 1 to capture this year’s crown, her sixth overall: also 1997, 1999, 2002 and 2004 during a 40-year stretch of competition. “I wanted to win in the 2010s sometime because every year I get a year older,” Sanders told a a post-match clubhouse celebration gathering. Turning to humor, “I have a lot of people to thank; first off it’s Brenda Curtis for not playing,” Sanders said, to loud laughter, about Curtis while taking lighthearted jabs at other past champions. “Julie Natale for ‘forfeiting’ and getting out of the way. Karen Neidhardt for having a bad round. “And I want to know who signed the application for Karen Jones to join this club,” Sanders added to more laughter. On a serious note, “My caddie, Carol [Hornstra] was awesome See LADIES on page 2B

I was in, like, six bunkers all day long.” Despite winning, Sanders said she “played like a spastic” on many back nine holes Thursday. A four-foot putt on No. 17 allowed Sanders to half the hole and win the crown. “I played well for the tournament,” she said.

Top ecological research director hasn’t forgotten Farragut roots


Dr. Lindsay Boring is directing one of the nation’s top ecological research centers: the 29,000-acre Joseph W. Jones Ecological Research Center at Ichauway, in Newton, Ga. Boring, a 1969 Farragut High School graduate where he was known as “Mr. Biology,” served as commencement speaker for University of Georgia’s spring graduation ceremony 30 years after earning his doctorate degree in ecology at UGA. But for all his national acclaim and success, Boring hasn’t forgotten his Farragut roots — and how his grade-school education helped launch his career. “The house I was raised in was up on the hill there in Farragut above the high school. That was our five- or six-generation family dairy farm,” said Boring, who earned his bachelor’s degree in biology

in 1973 at The University of Tennessee. That was followed “by a three-year stint in the U.S. Army,” attaining the rank of lieutenant. His love of things ecological began as a child “running around, playing in the woods, hunting and fishing and learning about plants and trees,” said Boring, also a former UGA assistant/associate professor for 11 years who remains an adjunct professor there. “I really feel like I’ve lived a pretty charmed life there," Boring added. “The quality of the [Farragut] schools was just phenomenal.” “I was really fortunate; I had a family that really valued education. My mother and my father's three sisters were all teachers in the Knox County School system. And we also had at least two other cousins that were teachers there.” At FHS, “The thing that I remember the most was See BORING on Page 10B

What is a hematoma? How would my dog get a hematoma, and what should I do about it?

A recent photo of Red Mill Dam.

Local residents reflect on Red Mill ■


For Nelle Strange, Red Mill Dam symbolized a refuge from Tennessee Valley Authority, which forced her family to sacrifice their home and land. In fact, she endured that twice in eight years. More than a generation later, Chris Barnes’ childhood often included fishing “by shooting chad with a bow-and-arrow” in Turkey Creek at the base of Red Mill Dam, located near Concord Road’s intersection with Waterford subdivision. “We would build a campfire down there and we would cook those fish and eat them,” added Barnes, a commercial broker with Coldwell Banker who has joined forces with Strange looking to sell this Red Mill Dam area, which includes the original Red Mill building, to the town of Farragut for a walking park. “There were three or four of us that would go down there and fish off the bridge there at Turkcy Creek. And we would find big pieces of Styrofoam and we

would float down the creek on those pieces of Styrofoam,” Barnes added. Forced out of Campbell County on property owned by her ancestors dating well back into the 1800s (because of the creation of Norris Dam), Strange said her family landed in West Knox County “about two miles from Concord on the Tennessee River … in 1934 when I was about six years old.” “And low-and-behold, eight years came along and [TVA] moved my daddy again,” Strange added about Fort Loudoun Dam and Lake being the reason Charles W. Irwin and family had to move again. “So this time he bought this house on Concord Road from Margaret and Charles Russell, and it was a dairy farm,” Strange said of property she owns 70 years later, including Red Mill Dam. “On the east side of Concord Road was the main farm, 56 acres, and on the west side of Concord Road was between six

Q: ‘Darby’, my little Yorkie, just got back from the groomer. The groomer found a lump on her leg and said it might be a hematoma. What is a hematoma? How would my dog get a Stephanie hematoma, and what Myers Ask should I do about it? the Vet D.B., Lenoir City A: Hematomas are pockets of blood under the skin. They can look like a tumor, but instead,

they are filled with blood. Hematomas can form when blood vessels break under the skin and leak blood. This happens most commonly when there has been some sort of trauma. Darby should be scheduled to see your veterinarian. He or she will palpate the area and talk to you about aspirating it. This is basically placing a needle, attached to a syringe, into the area of concern. If it is a hematoma, there will be blood present. Your veterinarian will drain it and advise you of any other treatments needed. Hematomas may be uncomfortable, but they are unlikely to be infected unless caused by a bite from another animal.

Aspirating any new area of swelling is important. By aspirating a lump, your veterinarian may also diagnose a cyst, abscess, or tumor. If the lump is a tumor, your veterinarian will talk to you about sending the aspirated material on a slide to a veterinary pathologist for testing. The slides can be examined with a microscope to determine if the lump is a benign or malignant tumor. Hopefully, Darby’s swelling is something simple and easily treated. But have it checked, just to make sure.

411 ON MAN'S BEST FRIEND Protect pets through the dog days of summer When the warm weather arrives, conscientious pet owners typically reevaluate how to care for their pets. As the seasons change, so may a pet's needs, and different safety precautions might be necessary.

PROVIDE EXTRA WATER If you will be spending a day away from home, leave one or two bowls of water available and put in a few ice cubes, which will help keep the water cooler. AVOID THE HOTTEST PARTS OF THE DAY Try to reschedule walks and daily exercise for early morning or early evening when things generally cool down. Remember, pavement and sidewalks can be very hot and burn the delicate pads of the feet. STAY UP-TO-DATE WITH VACCINATIONS Biting insects, such as mosquitoes, ticks and flies, are more prevalent this time of year and can transmit diseases.

and seven acres that has this creek and dam on it.” Strange’s father “would let his cattle cross Concord Road — I don’t know how many times there were wrecks — into that land where the creek was for them to graze,” she said. “It was just a pretty piece of grassy pasture, and it had the creek where the cows could get water.” “He kept it very clean,” Strange added. “I did try to keep it cleaned up when my father died because I knew it meant a lot to him.” However, “I was having to hire road equipment to go in there and clean that up, but it just got so expensive that I finally gave up,”

Strange added about that “pasture,” which is now filled with trees, brush and other wild vegetation. Mac Abel, Farragut Folklife Museum docent, said the dam and mill likely date back before 1873. Based on records Abel copied from Knox County Register of Deeds office, a transaction from Edmund Haun, who owned hundreds of acres in Concord dating back near the town’s founding in 1854, sold the house Strange later called home on April 14, 1973. Within the documents of that sale is “the wording” describing the property’s location “that would indicate the mill was already functional when that transfer was made,” Abel said. “There was a mill operating at that point.”

Comas From page 3B

in January 2008, Comas said she was moved to use her crocheting talents. The goal was honoring Kimberly and the other “more than 140” fallen female veterans who have died during the Iraqi War and Afghanistan War. After crocheting a wedding portrait more than a year later, “I envisioned doing the faces of the women who have died in Afghanistan and in Iraq using the method, Crochet By Numbers. In a black, white and gray scale format. … Twelve different shades of gray,” Comas said. Each crocheted memorial portrait is planned to 12-by-18 inches, Comas said. “About two or three years


later … I asked permission to hang my mural of these crocheted faces, and they gave me permission,” added Comas, who served in the army from 1984 to 1992. In August 2011, “I decided to complete my first project,” Comas said. “It took me seventeen-and-a-half hours to do the first piece. “I’m about to do the second and third” fallen female veterans. Helping her out, “Last year I got the support of Crochet Guild of America’s board, and this year in the latter part of June I got the support of a yarn company, Lion Brand Yarn,” Comas said. “This project is too large for me to complete myself,” she added. “I’ve had several women who have donated time to help

me.” Saying she’s crocheted since age 9, “I must crochet for stress relief … I give away most of what I crochet,” Comas said. Comas said she spearheaded the creation of female veteran license plates because existing military plates did not distinguish female service. “When my husband [Jeff] was driving my car, I began thinking that people that saw him driving the car assumed he was the veteran,” Comas said about her own military plates before 2009. “I went online to find a license plate for myself that would show that I was the veteran, and there was none. “So I proposed a bill before our state legislature,” Comas added. “And Tennessee became the second state in the Union to honor its women with a vet-

eran’s license plate.” The result is a license featuring “Molly Pitcher, a Revolutionary War heroine … It

simply states, ‘Tennessee Woman Veteran’ with a flag flying in the background,” Comas said.

Three factors making Pellissippi even better ■


Expansion, innovative programs and state legislation are three huge factors combining to make Pellissippi State Technical Community College even better in recent years. That was the basic message from PSTCC president L. Anthony Wise, featured speaker during The Rotary Club of Farragut’s weekly meeting Wednesday, July 18, in Fox Den Country Club. “Folks who live out here are twice as likely to have a college degree” as those living in East Knox County, Wise said about his school’s incentive to open a new campus in Strawberry Plains. Grand opening is 2 p.m., Monday, Aug. 13. In January 2010, Tennessee General Assembly passed “Complete College Tennessee Act,” Wise said, adding that since

this legislation passed, Tennessee has risen from 42nd to 38th nationally in higher education ranking. “We're headed in the right direction,” he added about three major factors that have changed for the better due to “Complete College.” “It changes the way higher education is funded in the state,” Wise said. “Previously we were funded based upon the number of students who came into the institution. “What happens now is we’re funded on the basis of outcome, the number of students who graduate, the number of students who successfully transfer ... there’s 12 performance outcomes that the state utilizes,” Wise added. Complete College also helps “make a stronger connection between workforce development See PELLISSIPPI on Page 10B

what an absolutely phenomenal faculty that we had there,” Boring said. “And extremely strong in the sciences.” “Lamar Orr, Ken Ward and Nelson Edwards, they were just exceptional science teachers,” Boring added. “I really loved science, and I felt like I got a very, very strong educational background. “And then on top of that, I also remember we had some really great English teachers. They really exposed us to a lot of ideas and they really taught us how to write.” As an FHS student, Boring said he realized "I could actually become a scientist. I could study nature, I could study forests, I could actually make a living doing that. “My classmates used to kid me a lot and call me ‘Mr. Biology,’ Boring added. Boring's wife, Dr. Kay Kirkman, “is much more of a wetlands ecologist and a plant ecologist” also with Jones Research Center, he

Also, we wanted to do it to teach our youth about the importance of fresh vegetables and the importance of being able to grow stuff like this. The knowledge of learning how to compost.” “The majority of our produce gets donated to the Manna House at Cokesbury [Center].” A recent load of produce went to Y’s summer day camp program at Beaumont Elementary School in East Knoxville.

said. “To be raised that close to Oak Ridge National Laboratory and that close to The University of Tennessee, we had a lot of families that were very committed to quality education at Farragut,” Boring added. “I’ve learned to appreciate that more and more the more that I've aged and see a lot of changes in society.” Summing up his Farragut experience, “It’s almost like a magic time in an amazing location,” Boring said.

and higher education,” Wise said. “If there’s a need for a certain type of technician, we’ve got the right institutions lined up and the appropriate level of training that will help grow the local workforce.” Still another aspect of Complete College “is the establishment of transfer pathways,”

the children there how to make zucchini pizzas and taught them how to clean their own vegetables and peel cucumbers and all that good stuff,” Day said. Receiving a grent from Walmart in “April 2012,” Day said. “I think we got a grand total of about $4,000.” With “rich compost soil from a mushroom factory,” Day and his assistants began “planting everything in the middle of May.” “I think we started getting produce at the end of June,” he added. In addition to a 10-by-20-foot greenhouse are three outdoor raised garden beds, each less than 30 square feet according to

Day. “In the raised beds we have an assortment of vegetables; we have all sorts of different tomatoes, we have eggplant, we have herbs, squash, cucumber, zucchini, watermelon, green bell peppers,” Day said. Davis Y’s Leaders Club, a gathering of youth ages 12-18 under the direction of advisor Jack O’Hearn that meets every Monday evening, is one major target of the education aspect. O’Hearn said the gardens help “teach them how to be responsible for taking care of something that is living and needs care and involvement.”

Wise said, adding PSTCC “has a strong relationship with The University of Tennessee, Knoxville. We work on many, many agreements to make sure our students have pathways into bachelor’s level work at The University of Tennessee. From its partnership with UT, “We’ve also graduated our first group of culinary art students,” Wise said. “This year, in fact, we

had more transfer graduates, 700, that’s as many as all graduates we had five years ago. “We’ve also just graduated our first class of nurses,” Wise added Wise said PSTCC enrollment is up from about 7,500 in 2004 to more than 11,000 students registered last fall, which includes its relatively new Blount County campus along Highway 321 “with just over 1,500 students” last fall.
