‘Prayer event’ for men slated for Aug. 24

DAN BARILE editor@farragutpress.com

Are you ready to stand up, be courageous and say, “As for me and my house, we will serve the Lord?” That is what members of Courageous Men’s Ministry out of First Baptist Concord in Farragut said they are hoping enough fathers, sons, brothers and grandfathers would be willing to do during a very special call to prayer, worship and praise for the men of God in the Farragut area titled “RESTORATION: A Prayer Event for Men”

Saturday, Aug. 24, at ThompsonBoling Arena. David Sallas, executive director of Courageous Men’s Ministry, said, “The act of ‘restoration’ is the process or action taken to return an object back to its original condition or design function. For the man of God, we believe that the design of the relationships he has with his God, his wife, his children and his community are explained and detailed in God’s word. “As men of God, we are burdened by the present state of the church, the disintegration of the family and the moral collapse of

our country. We are convinced that the solution for the crisis that exists will not be solved by any political agent. The only option is for the men of God to turn back to Him and again perform the responsibility God has given them as the spiritual leader of the home and the ‘caretakers’ of the standard of a godly man for this generation and the next generation to follow.” The idea for the gathering had its genesis at First Baptist Concord. “It was born at church,” Sallas said, “Our pastor challenged us, ‘what are you going to do now,

what are you going to do?’ … One Saturday morning, sitting in my living room with my wife, we were talking and I said, ‘Why don’t we get men together to pray for our wives’ and all of a sudden, the next thing you know, we had talked it through, we had a plan, God just blessed it, I called a friend of mine and he got all fired up for it and the next thing I know I’m standing down at Thompson-Boling Arena signing a contract.” Sallas added that the first year about 5,000 attended and hoped to see that number increase to 10,000 this year.

“We’d like to sell them all,” he said noting Thompson-Boling Arena seats 18,000, “but that would be up to God.” This year’s keynote speaker is former Clemson University head football coach Tommy Bowden, and guest speaker is Kenny Luck, men’s pastor at Saddleback Church in Lake Forest, Calif.

Town hosts ‘International Residential Code’ session

ROBBY O’DANIEL rodaniel@farragutpress.com

An information session on 2012 International Residential Code will take place at 5 p.m., Wednesday, Aug. 21, at Farragut Town Hall. Elliott Sievers, building inspector for the town of Farragut, will lead the session. The session will look at changes from the 2006 to 2012 International Residential Code,

he said. “It’s geared more for the contractors, but it is open to the public,” he said. “... They’re familiar with what the 2006 codes had, and they’ll learn [what] the code changes from 2006 to 2012 on selected items will be. You can’t obviously go over the entire code — it’s a twoand-a-half-inch thick book — but we’re hitting the highlights of some changes, some of the significant changes.”

He said the International Residential Code is “the building code that is basically geared toward one- and two-family dwellings, which the Town has adopted.” Among other things, the session will go over energy code changes, Sievers said. “They are requiring some testing,” he said. “One is called a duct blaster test, and that is See SESSION on Page 2A

Walking students factor in school zone placement

The frequency at which kindergarten-through-high school students must cross a road or highway near their school: one key toward warranting installation of school speed reduction zones and warning lights along any of the Town’s three schools off Kingston Pike. “Is it something we’d consider if it were just one or two students, probably not. If there

were quite a few we’d certainly have to take a serious look at it,” said Darryl Smith, Town engineer, about Kingston Pike adjacent schools Farragut High, Concord Christian and Primrose School of Farragut (toddler through kindergarten). “The reason we don’t have the flashers on Kingston Pike, really, it’s not warranted,” he added. “School flashers like that are usually only put in along the route that fronts the school, like at [Farragut] Primary School”

fronting Campbell Station Road. Federal Highway Administration guidelines allow such zones for FPS and for FHS’s western entrance/exit at Campbell Station. “If the entrance is directly on the route, that’s usually the only place the Manual on Uniform Traffic Control Devices really looks at installing signals,” said Smith, who added he has the authority to decide whether or See ZONES on Page 3A

Rural/Metro Corporation has entered into Chapter 11 bankruptcy protection, yet it’s spending well more than $1 million beyond Knox County requirements to upgrade dispatch technology with “a state-of-the-art Cadillac” system. And there’s enough extra money, apparently, for R/M Fire Department’s Campbell Station hall in Farragut. “We’re planning on putting a new roof on this year,” which also would include “doing some cosmetic stuff to it. … And we have a goal of bringing more [manpower] into those Farragut stations.” This according to Rob Webb, Rural/Metro of Tennessee division manager, who emphasized “it’s business as usual at Rural/Metro. We had one of the best compliance response days that we’ve ever had [Monday, Aug. 5]. The ambulances are staffed, ready to go, out in the community. “Our fire trucks are staffed ready to go,” Webb added. “Everything is normal here.” “There’s not been any staff cutbacks at all,” Webb said, adding there had been “two new hires” of emergency personnel Tuesday, Aug. 6. While county requirements necessitate Rural/Metro install “over a $1 million” Computer Aided Dispatch system, “We’re actually putting in a $3 million CAD system,” Webb said. “We’re putting in the state-of-the-art Cadillac … for police, fire, rescue, ambulance, all emergency services.” However, “It will be many

months before it is finished,” Webb added. “This has been a three-year process in design alone.” CAD’s advantages include much quicker ambulance and fire response times because “there will actually be a screen pop up in front of the paramedics, and they’ll be able to look at where they’re at, then it will route them,” Webb said. “This routing will be close to 100 percent accurate.” CAD would “plot driveways; it will plot like a bridge that is too low for the ambulances to go under … it will route them around that,” Webb added. Also recently upgraded with R/M Ambulance despite bankruptcy is “Life Pack 15; what that is is a 12-lead EKG system similar to what your cardiologist would use in a doctor’s office,” Webb said. “We can actually transmit that from the scene to any hospital in the region.” As for seeking increased revenue through possible fire subscription rate increases, which are contracted on a per household basis, “We don’t have a rate increase scheduled at all,” Webb said. Meanwhile, since ambulance charges are set every three years contractually with the county, “That’s still two years away,” Webb said. “The ambulance subscription is $59 a year. … to or from a hospital.” Giving its state-of-the-art improvements yet maintaining current customer costs, Webb said R/M’s need to increase revenues could be improved by “a full-time marketing staff that See RURAL on Page 3A

Rain hampers Watt, Old Stage roads project policereports

ALAN SLOAN asloan@farragutpress.com

Due to rain delays plus challenges with utility relocation, Watt Road extension/Old Stage Road widening project may not be finished by the Nov. 15 contracted completion date. When completed, the 1,100foot Watt Road extension will be a welcomed connector to Interstate 40-75 according to public feedback. While two prominent businesses along the extension also welcome the extension, some concerns have been expressed. “Of course, we’re happy about it,” said Ellen Taylor Jones, treasurer of Dixie Lee Wines & Liquors, 13044 Kingston Pike.

where they pressurize the duct system to check for leaks in your joints, so that you’re not having heat loss that could be used to heat or cool your house. ... There’s another test. It’s called a blower door test, and they seal up what they can and put a big fan in place of your front door and do a negative pressure, and they look for leaks in what they’re calling your thermal envelope.” The thermal envelope “is the area of conditioned living space, that is the barrier where you’ve got your insulation protecting

“Bringing the traffic through this area is going to be good, I think, for all the businesses out here.” However, Jones added, “The only

concern we have about this, we have a situation similar to the

you from the outside environment,” he said. Those tests were not required in the past, but now they are, he said. The 2012 International Residential Code applies to new construction, he said. “So even if you did an addition on an existing home, that addition must meet the new standards,” he said. It would be important for builders to attend the session, he said. “It’d be important for a lot of the builders because it’s their livelihood, their business,” he said. “They need to know before we come out there what we’re

going to be looking at. And we have a very good working relationship with the builders in this town. So it’s an information thing, and we’re looking for feedback from them also. So it’s fairly important.”

not to recomment implementing such zones to the Board of Mayor and Aldermen. “I try to follow the manual as closely as possible.” In addition, “We would confer with TDOT’s traffic folks and make sure that they felt it was a reasonable thing to do,” Smith said. “Other considerations are the fact that, you kind of look at pedestrian counts. Where would you expect to see pedestrians? “The schools up there on the hill [Farragut Intermediate, Middle and High schools] … there a pretty good ways away from Kingston Pike,” he added. “While there are high school students that park over at the old Kroger and walk across, we have pedestrian signals at each one of those. “We’ve gotten that request, I want to say a couple of times in the last several years. … I do recall getting a request from a parent at Concord Christian. … I vaguely recall we spoke with the director at Concord Christian to find out if there were any students that possibly walked from Village Green on the other side, north of Kingston Pike. And there really weren’t.” At Concord Christian School, “They don’t have the flashers simply because all students are dropped off there,” Smith said. “They really don’t have any pedestrians.” At Primrose School, “I know all of those kids are dropped off,” Smith said. Estimated cost to install school traffic zone lighting runs “in the neighborhood of $20,000” per school zone, according to Smith. Grigsby Chapel and St. John Court each have zones because of St. John Neumann’s sufficient number of pedestrian traffic crossing both on foot. “St. John Neumann has kids that walk to [and from] the neighboring subdivisions,” Smith said. “They’re

We’ll have

four local guys leading those prayer areas including FBC senior pastor John Avant; Roger Wood, chaplain for The University of Tennessee football team; Jason Hayes, Shoreline Church lead pastor and Jason Zachary, FBC deacon.” Tickets are also available online for the Pastor and Leader Conference before the event.

There are no add-ons for supplies, medicines,” Webb said. “The only extra charge is for mileage, which is $8.73 cents per loaded mile. Non-emergency is

$326.20 with the same mileage.” Non-subscriber “critical care transport … is $936.64” with the same mileage, Webb added. Subscribers’ cost of ambulance transport not involving a hospital “is 50 percent off” the $326.20 and $8.73 per mile nonsubscriber costs, Webb said. “The fire [subscription] is based on [home or office] square footage.” Webb did not have those figures readily available.

So we went ahead and had that installed. ... “The ones on Campbell Station have been in for probably 20 years.”

situation at Weigel’s at Grisgby Chapel and Kingston Pike. “The traffic that is coming from Kingston Pike and Watt Road, if they don’t put up some kind of stop thing on the road that’s adjacent to us, it’s going to prevent customers from being able to turn left coming into our parking lot area.” Basil Skelton, owner of Cool Sports Home of the Icearium, said he was “glad that the city can get that extended up to Old Stage Hills. It’s a good avenue for folks back there to get out from there, and it relieves a little pressure on some of the other outlets. I’ve always been for extending Watt Road.” However, “The unfortunate thing for me is a very steep road, and it bottoms out right at my drive,” Skelton added about the extension. “I think it’s a positive thing for the community, but I’m a little apprehensive about what

it may do to my ingress and egress because of the steepness of the drive.” When completed, “There will be greatly improved access to Watt Road with Interstate 40 for the southwest quadrant of the Town,” Darryl Smith, town of Farragut engineer, said. With constructions bids let in December 2012, low bidder McKinnon Construction Company, LLC, of Loudon County — bidded at $2,446,887 with an 80/20 federal/Town funding split — began construction in February. Watt Road extension from Kingston Pike to Old Stage will include a center turn lane. A 2,447-linear-foot section of Old Stage will be widened to become two 12-foot lanes all to the way to Town limits/Loudon County line. With the northern-most section of Old Stage in Farragut, “That road goes down to about 14 feet wide [both lanes included]. Two cars really can’t pass without somebody getting a little bit into the grass,” Smith said.

Homeowner response I would like to respond to the individuals who called into presstalk about your article in the paper last week, resenting the fact that we have more than one home, and live in a nice neighborhood. I would like to point out a couple of things which are missing from this article. We have lived in our home for 23 years and have never made a late payment on our LCUB bill, or any other bill for that matter. We pay off our credit card bills every month. We have never bounced a check, have worked hard during our lives, have raised three children, and have done without things over the years so we could enjoy our lives as “seniors.” In 38 years of marriage we have owned one new car. My husband is 70 and is still working. We raised three children, paid for their college educations and never took out a loan other than for our mortgage. We have learned to sacrifice for those things we want in life. We have gone through being unemployed twice and we made it, because

we always saved for a rainy day. Even though my husband has an engineering degree and a business degree from Cornell University, it was never beneath him to fix toilets, paint trim on houses, etc. to make extra money during times of unemployment. How dare they refer to us as “dadgum people.” We have earned everything we have — neither of us were born with a silver spoon in our mouth, and we are proud of where we have gotten. We never bought anything we could not afford, and instant gratification was not our way of life. Can those who resent us claim the same standards in life? All that aside, my reason for contacting you originally was to let people know that LCUB does not forward your mail, as all other utilities do. I very much appreciate you bringing this policy to the attention of those who may in the future take an extended leave from their home. When you fill out a change of address with the post office, your electric bill will not be forwarded. This is an

I was curious why anyone would advertise their name, what subdivision they lived in, a picture of their house and announce that they are gone most of the year. Hope you don’t have to read about them in the police reports next year. • I was witness to an accident on Saturday, [Aug. 10,] that involved three totaled vehicles with several very serious injuries. Once we made the call to 911 it took over 30 minutes for the [Tennessee Highway Patrol] to arrive. By the time the THP arrived, to help with traffic and also to investigate the incident, there were three ambulances, rescue squad and fire department giving assistance. Since there was no police presence people, apparently in such a rush to get somewhere and uncaring about the lives that were at risk, were trying to drive in between the wrecked cars and between

Campbell Station Road when you are going south. To turn left, it seems we are always stuck behind LCUB, and that’s not even counting school traffic. This is during the summer it’s so bad. I’m just wondering if it’s time to evaluate possibly having two turn lanes like it used to be before the extension road for Campbell Station opened. • What an excellent decision for the town of Farragut to buy the historical Russell Home on the corner of Campbell Station Road and Kingston Pike and also to set aside funds to renovate the property. The town of Farragut parks and greenways are amazing and so well taken care of. Thank you town of Farragut. • Regarding the snowbirds article, shame on this couple for not taking responsibility for prepaying of their own utilities while they were gone on a fivemonth vacation and placing blame on LCUB. If they are financially able to travel for months at a time, they certainly must have adequate funds and technology resources to solve

presstalk@farragutpress.com the ambulances. The last time I witnessed an accident in Farragut it took over two hours for the police to arrive. That accident was more minor, but a pregnant lady did have to go to the hospital. Traffic was blocked and had to be detoured by people kind enough to offer assistance for two hours. Farragut is not in an unpopulated area and at the Knox County line, so why is the response time so very slow? • Well, I just had another shopping afternoon ruined. I went to the mall for an afternoon of shopping and you don’t more than get shopping when you hear all these clap claps of flip flops. I heard there is a rumor that the mayor of New York, the next thing he is going to do is ban flip flops and I thought that would be a good idea for our County mayor, for the mayor of Farragut to ban flip flops. Anyway, I just wanted to put that out there. • I am just wondering if anyone out there in the town of Farragut has noticed there is a little problem when you try to turn left onto Kingston Pike from

going through what we went through, I can assure you one way or the other, this will not happen to us again!!

Summer program offers Ellsworth a broad range of experience ■ ROBBY O’DANIEL

rodaniel@farragutpress.com

Irina Ellsworth, of Farragut, participated in the Research Experiences for Undergraduates summer program in the Department of Chemistry at The University

of Tennessee. “It’s a 10-week program, and it started the last week of May,” she said. “...The way it works, they have multiple professors in the department, and each professor has his own group, and that group specializes on certain things, certain research areas.”

Ellsworth, 29, is a senior in chemistry at East Tennessee State University. Originally from Russia, she traveled to Tennessee in 2004. “I came in 2004,” she said. “I came on a work and travel program, and it was over in Pigeon Forge, Tennessee, and so next year, I

came back with the same program, and then I prolonged the program and I was working for a while in Pigeon Forge.” She decided to stay in Tennessee in 2005, even though she was close to getting a bachSee ELLSWORTH on Page 9A

Muldrew not slowing down ■

Similar to a talented Major League Baseball player in his early 40s who is relegated to pinch-hitting duties as he nears retirement, Edith Muldrew has been “pinch-hitting” on her riding lawnmower. Approaching age 90. “Up until this year she mowed her own grass on a riding lawnmower. And now, if the people don’t show up [to mow] and it dries off, she’ll go out and cut it still,” said Don Muldrew, Edith’s son, one of a few dozen family and close friends, including two of her five great-grandchildren, celebrating Edith’s 90th birthday Saturday, July 13. As opposed to being worried about her occasional mowing, “She mows faster than I do,” Don said. “I started to get her a NASCAR jacket to wear. She likes

it done, and she likes it done her way.” “I heard she’s planning to do it again. More power to her,” said Judy Muldrew Fish, Edith’s daughter. “If she can do it, I think that is great.” Celebrating a woman much younger looking that her 90 years who credits “staying active” for her vitality, this festive Saturday began with a family-friend lunch gathering at Calhoun’s Turkey Creek in early afternoon. A reception, cake ceremony and slide show came later that afternoon at the home of Edith’s grandson, Greg Muldrew, and his wife, Tara, off Grigsby Chapel Road. Originally from West Virginia, Edith and the late Bill Muldrew moved to Oak Ridge in 1952 after Bill was hired at K-25 to help facilitate “uranium enrichment’’ in 1951. They moved to Farragut, at See MULDREW on Page 9A

Scobey shares Egyptian expertise with Rotary

ALAN SLOAN asloan@farragutpress.com

Margaret Scobey, former U.S. Ambassador to Egypt and Syria and new resident of Farragut, witnessed the Egyptian government “collapse literally in front of my eyes.” Sharing her expertise about Egypt and the Middle East and personal experiences as ambassador, Scobey was featured speaker during The Rotary Club of Farragut’s weekly Wednesday meeting, June 12, in Fox Den Country Club. As Egyptian ambassador from 2008 to July 2011, including the final years of long-time Egyptian

leader Hosni Mubarak, Scobey witnessed the collapse in December 2010 “at the time that the entire edifice of the Egyptian political reality that had stood for over 40 year, was the basis of foreign policy in the Middle East.” A cue attempt in Tunisia at that time “sparked what we have seen in the rest of the region,” said Scobey, who recently retired after 32 years U.S. Foreign Ministry service, including Ambassador to Syria from late 2003 to early 2005. About Egypt, “Many people have asked, ‘Didn’t you see this coming? Didn’t you realize this place was going to explode?’” Scobey said. “All of the conditions that led to

these explosions were well known and documented,” she added. “In the case of Egypt, we knew about this youth bulge that was coming out. Young people graduating from college, no job opportunities. We knew that the government was corrupt. … We knew there was this crony capitalism going on.” Also, “People were very upset because of the whole issue of [having] a very corrupt Parliamentary election in November [2010],” Scobey said, adding that an aging “unengaged” Mubarak “was hinting that he was going to run for re-election for See SCOBEY on Page 9A

6A • FARRAGUTPRESS THURSDAY, AUGUST 15, 2013

A magical night Our son gave us a gift certificate to Andina, a restaurant in Portland, Oregon. We used it last night. Because we’d never heard of the place, we had no expectations. Turns out it’s rated as the best restaurant in Portland! Since we didn’t m a k e reservations, we felt lucky to get a table for two even if Pam it was in Young the bar and Make it squished in Fun! between two other tables for two. The place was crowded and bursting with gaiety. The aroma of good food was pleasant torture as we salivated over dishes being brought to various tables around us and tried to figure out the big menu in Peruvian. There were descriptions of the dishes in English, but they didn’t really help that much. I chose: ATÚN CON TACU TACU Y AGUAYMANTO Seared yellow fin tuna sprinkled with black pepper and orange zest, (I was tracking so far) served with traditional lima bean tacu tacu, (I had to ask our waiter what tacu tacu was and he said it was smooshed lima beans; no wonder they decided to go with the tacu tacu verbage) orange wedges, endive spears and salsa criolla, (I figured the criolla part meant hot and spicy and I was delightfully

right about that) drizzled with a cape gooseberry-ají amarillo sauce (I was impressed that the gooseberries came from some cape maybe Cod or Canaveral, and I was pretty sure Amarillo was a liqueur I remember liking in my liqueur drinking days). The tuna was scrumptious and the mashed up lima beans were close to addictive. Terry had SECO A LA NORTEÑA an old family recipe—lamb shank slow-cooked in the Northern Peruvian style, in a rich cilantroblack beer sauce, served with a classic guiso de frijoles, garlic rice and salsa criolla. He ordered it because the woman next to him was eating it when we sat down and he asked her what it was. She told him and said it was delicious and she was so glad she’d ordered it after seeing it on the guy’s plate next to her when she sat down. The couple on one side of us was out on their first date since their baby was born. Joe and Beverly had left nine-month-old Ezekiel home with Grandma. They showed us photos of Ezekiel on Joe’s cell phone. He was adorable! I truly expected the young couple’s names to be something like Bye Nu and Vu Ling because Joe is Korean and Beverly is Chinese. I’ve got to quit profiling, I should know better by now. After the woman who inspired Terry’s entre choice left, a nice couple from Dallas took her place. The guy was Norwegian and he asked Terry what he was eating and was inspired to order the SECO A LA NORTEÑA. Turned out there were five SECO A LA NORTEÑAs served in a row in the time we were there. I think it’s because people are a little leery of fancy menus with words

deathnotices birthnotices

they don’t understand and seeing food on a plate that looks kind of familiar, helps. The Norwegian man’s name was Morten and his lovely wife was Debbie. Morten works for American Airlines and they had just flown to Portland for 24 hours on a whim. They told us they fell in love with the city and they asked us an inter-

esting question. “What’s the most extreme weather you have to endure in the Pacific Nort-hwest?” We had to think about that, because we don’t really experience extreme weather. We figured they were maybe thinking about Portland as a place to retire and we wanted to make sure they understood what they’d be in for.

If you ever come to Portland on a night like last night, you could be tricked into thinking that’s how it is all the time. Last night was a magical night, 72 degrees, light breeze, and lush green everywhere. But we North Westerners pay for that green and it’s called rain, which comes in See YOUNG on Page 9A

Mubarak’s successor, Mohammed Morsi, was overthrown by the Egyptian military, led by Gen. Abdel-Fattah el-Sissi, July 3. Scobey said U.S.-Egyptian relations “are going to be challenged, strained, for some time to come. And we see that almost every day.”

said. “I think that I always liked chemistry, and I studied it in Russia, so coming here, I already had some credits from Russian university in chemistry,” she said. “And it’s such a broad field that, as far as looking for a job or just working in different areas, that’s a great chance to do that, so it’s not so narrow. ... I like the fact that chemistry is all around us and that our bodies are made of chemistry, and that’s what brought my interest into the field.” She heard about the REU program at ETSU.

Chipotle opening slated for fall ■

ROBBY O’DANIEL rodaniel@farragutpress.com

Construction has started on a new Chipotle Mexican Grill at 11380 Parkside Drive, with an anticipated opening set for the fall. “In opening new restaurants, we look for areas where we think we’re going to have a high volume of traffic,” said Danielle Winslow, spokeswoman for Chipotle Mexican Grill. Construction began July 22, she said. “This is actually a really cool year for us because we just celebrated our 20th anniversary, and Chipotle was really founded on the idea that fast food doesn’t have to be your typical fast food experience,” she said. “... Today our mission is to really change the way that people think about and eat fast food.” The restaurant has more than 1,500 locations, she said. “Chipotle is a Mexican restaurant, and we offer a focused menu of burritos, tacos, burrito bowls and salad,” she said. “It’s set up in a line where customers can come in and pick and choose exactly what goes into their meal.” Customers can choose between four different types of meat — carnitas, chicken, steak and barbacoa, she said.

Robby O’Daniel/farragutpress

Construction continues at Chipotle Mexican Grill at 11380 Parkside Drive.

“With all of the different ingredients, there are more than 60,000 different combinations, so there are a lot of ways that people can come in and customize their meal however they choose,” she said. They also can choose between varieties of rice and beans, she said. “Once you get your rice, beans and your meat, then you continue down the line, and you have a choice of the four different types

of salsas that are also handmade in our restaurant every day,” she said. “And then you can choose between, we then have sour cream and cheese, which is also hormone free ... and then lettuce and homemade guacamole.” What makes the restaurant stand out is the food, she said. “It all goes back to our food,” she said. “Again, we are using better, more sustainable sources for all the food that we serve, so our customers can feel really

great about what they’re eating and how it’s prepared, from the responsibly raised meat that we talked about to the hormone-free dairy. ... For the past several years, Chipotle has been committed to using locally grown produce. So this year, we plan to use hopefully more than 15 million pounds of locally grown produce that is grown within 350 miles of the restaurant where it will be served.”

Local KenJo market switches from BP to Exxon

The KenJo Markets, located at 709 Campbell Station Road, has changed its storefront look, with a recent move from BP to Exxon. “We’re a local company,” said Jimmy McBrayer, director of marketing with KenJo Markets. “... BP made some decisions that affected our business, so we had to make decisions, and the results of those decisions is the changing of our gasoline offerings from BP to what you see there on Campbell Station, which is an Exxon.” Previously all of the KenJo Markets, except for one, offered BP, he said, but not all the KenJo See KENJO on Page 2B

Lutheran wins Distinguished Service to Powder Metallurgy award

ROBBY O’DANIEL rodaniel@farragutpress.com

The Metal Powder Industries Federation honored Michael Lutheran, president of Royal Metal Powders, with the Distinguished Service to Powder Metallurgy award. Lutheran, of Farragut, said it was an honor. “Because you’re recognized and selected among your peers,” he said. “So there were 41 people that were up for the award. It’s given every two years, and there were only 12 people that received it.” Originally from Pittsburgh, Pa., Lutheran said his parents, Al and Shirley, had a positive impact on him growing up.

“Very positive, especially my father, with his business background, I think helped me in my future career,” he said. “... It was a good family environment and deeply involved in business, of course. We spent a lot of hours helping my dad.” His family owned Lutheran’s Beer Distributor. He got his bachelor’s degree in metallurgical engineering from Penn State University, he said. “After college, I went to work for U.S. Steel in Pittsburgh, and I became very involved in the metals industry,” he said. “And then in 1990, I was hired to start up a metal powder plant in Seymour, Ind., and so that’s how I got involved in powder metallurgy.” Startups have been a common theme of his career.

“My background has been in startups, startup companies and turnaround of companies, so my career has been pretty fastpaced, senior-level positions, quite challenging,” he said. Royal Metal Powders, located in Maryville, is three years old, he said. “It had been there for a number of years,” he said. “We bought it. The previous company closed it, and we restarted the business. We combined an operation in New Jersey with the operation down here, so we brought all the equipment from New Jersey down to Tennessee, and we restarted the business in July of 2010.” He said the company makes copper, brass and bronze powders.

“We produce the powder, and it’s used to make parts, various parts, automotive industry, lawn and garden, construction,” he said. Customers of the company make parts that are near net shape, he said. “When our customers produce a part for a car, for General Motors as an example, when they press the powder together, it’s in the shape of a part that they want,” he said. “... If you wanted a transmission gear, [customers] would put it in the mold, put the powder in there, press it and when it comes out of the press, it’s the perfect shape that you want. There’s very little secondary work that’s required.”

Markets are switching to the same gas offerings. “We have 35 different markets, and all of them are changing,” McBrayer said. “Some of them will be Exxon. Some of them will be Shell. Some of them will be Mobil. Some of them will be Marathon, and that all will be accomplished by the end of the year.” West Knoxville seems to have a number of the stations that are switching to Exxon, he said. “At the end of the day, they’re still KenJo,” McBrayer said. “We’re still the local company. We just changed our gas offerings. ... Look for the changes. Still the same smiling faces in the stores, just a different brand of gas.” He estimated that physical changes to different markets began in March. “ExxonMobil and Shell and Marathon, they are all nationally recognized leaders in the petroleum industry, and KenJo ... has

always associated itself with premium partners, if you will, and that fit us,” he said. John Lowe is director of operations for Downey Oil Company, which is a sister company to KenJo Markets, Lowe said. “Downey Oil Company is the actual fuel distributor, and KenJo Markets is the brand of the market itself,” Lowe said. “... KenJo Markets is the company that operates the actual convenience store.” Lowe called Exxon a strong brand. “At the end of the day, while the brand itself on the outside of the station has changed, the quality of the products has not,” he said. “You’re still getting a quality fuel product.” McBrayer described KenJo Markets. “We have 35 markets in the greater East Tennessee area,” he said. “We are locally owned. We are the home of the Mountain Dew slushies and the two-footlong Super Grandaddy Sandwich.”

Galbraith, Sutch score national gold ■

ALAN SLOAN asloan@farragutpress.com

Not content with a secondplace national finish in 55-59 Senior Olympic doubles badminton with partner Rod Sutch in 2009, Farragut’s Frank Galbraith made sure health concerns wouldn’t prevent national championship gold in 2013. “I’ve gotten a knee operation since then, a brand new knee, and I’ve been working very hard for the last four months … I’ve been going at it like crazy,” said Galbraith, a retired Farragut Middle School teacher of 30 years who reached his goal last month. He teamed with Sutch, his partner since 2003 from West Knoxville, to easily win 60-64 Senior Olympic doubles national championship in Cleveland, Ohio. “I took off nine months.” Upon arrival in Cleveland, “I was so wired, I was so excited about this I was ready to jump over barriers,” Galbraith said. “That last match was, like, at noon, and I was still wired that evening about six or seven o’clock. “I’ve been pointing toward this for four years. … I did not play well at Stanford University [2009],” Galbraith added. “It was relief and happiness.” Remember that Galbraith and Sutch were required to play in 60-64 because Sutch is age 60 — Galbraith is 72. However, Galbraith praised the talent of his teammate, who fin-

ished fourth nationally in 60-64 singles. “I’m telling you right now, he’s one of the top four badminton players in 60-to-64 in the United States,” Galbraith said of Sutch. Despite Galbraith having to “play younger” with Sutch’s group in all Senior Games competitions, the pair has won nine state championships. “Every time we have played, we have been able to take the state [championship],” Galbraith said. However, Cleveland’s effort last month “was the best we’ve played,” Galbraith said. Sutch labeled Galbraith “a wonderful person. And he’s playing down a couple of age groups to play with me, so it’s really remarkable how well he plays 10 years beyond the group that he’s playing with. “He’s very athletic, and he has been his whole life. … He can reach all sorts of things. Good reflexes,” added Sutch, who with wife, Lovella, finished fifth nationally in mixed doubles in Cleveland. “I used to win some [state] singles [championships] too,” Galbraith said. “My wife, Cheryl, and I even won mixed doubles [state] one year.” While winning four matches plus one forfeit to claim national gold with Sutch, “We kind of cruised through it there,” Galbraith said. They won all eight games played (best twoout-of-three per match, first one to 21 points ahead by at least two wins the game).

Smoky Mountain Hotshots go undefeated to national title ■

KEN LAY Correspondent

An area women’s basketball team recently came home with a gold medal from the National Senior Games. The Smoky Mountain Hotshots completed an undefeated run for the championship. The Hotshots went 7-0 over a four-day span in late July and knocked off the Celadrin Tigerettes from Louisiana twice en route to winning the tournament in Cleveland, Ohio. The Tigerettes had won seven consecutive National Senior Games titles before being dethroned by the Hotshots in 2013. The Hot Shots opened pool play with two victories on July 26. Knoxville defeated the Texas Phoenix 48-21 and closed the first day with a 32-20 win over the Mississippi Magnolias. On the second day of pool play, the squad outlasted the Rocky Mountain High Tops 35-26 and routed Arizona Diamonds 65, 40-

24 to conclude a perfect run in pool play. The Hot Shots then swept through the medal round with a 45-41 win over the Lady Ball Hawgs. The team then claimed the title with consecutive victories over the mighty Tigerettes at Cleveland Public Hall. The Hot Shots edged Celadrin 31-30 July 28. The two teams tangled again July 28 with the Hot Shots beating the Tigerettes 39-23 to win the title. “Everybody was waiting to see somebody beat them,” said Hot Shots captain Susie Hargis, a Farragut resident, “People weren’t so much pulling for us to win as much as they were pulling for them to lose. “Next year, all the people who were rooting for us will be rooting against us.” The Tigerettes achieved national prominence with an appearance on NBC’s Today Show and a PBS documentary. The Louisiana-based team is one of few that carries a national cor-

porate sponsor. “They’ve been on the Today Show and PBS did a documentary on them,” Hargis said of the Tigerettes. “The documentary was a good film except for the basketball. “They had a camera follow them to the beauty shop and it was just ridiculous.” Hargis and her husband Rob (a coach for the Hotshots) appeared in the PBS show. Rob had suffered a recent shoulder injury and Susie admitted that both she and Rob (who later suffered a stroke) were a bit brash during filming. “Rob said some things that he probably shouldn’t have said and I said some things that I probably shouldn’t have said,” Susie recalled. Before taking up basketball and playing with teammates Jo Farmer, Neak Alexander, Anna Bright, Cherie Martin and Billie Dempsey, Susie Hargis was no stranger to senior athletics. She competed in tennis and track

and field. She took up basketball at the behest of Sadie Stroud, a founding member of the Smoky Mountain Mamas. The two teams are intertwined today and basketball is now Susie’s passion. “Sadie begged me to play and I hadn’t played since high school,” Susie said. “Rob had played and

he encouraged me to do it.” Susie now practices daily. She plays at Piney Grove Baptist Church and at First Baptist Church in Maryville. “I do love the game,” Susie said. “I had competed in tennis and track and field and every year, I had to decide which sport I was going to compete in.
