We can hopefully get reimbursed for everything but

the first 12 hours of that.” Described further in the plan are the details of the chain of events to occur during a major emergency or disaster. Area residents are expected to report emergency situations through the Knoxville-Knox County E-911 Center, which will determine whether a potential emergency situation exists.

BOMA approves Parks and Leisure Master Plan

News Sentinel Open winner

Alan Sloan/farragutpress

Nailing four birdies on his final five holes, Peter Malnati of Dandridge holds up his crystal trophy as 2013 News Sentinel Open presented by Pilot champion (16-under, 268). Malnati celebrates, while some help, as a replica version of his $99,000 first-place check ($550,000 purse) also is presented during a ceremony on No. 18 green Sunday evening, Aug. 18, at Fox Den Country Club. Persenting sponsor reps are Patrick Birmingham, left, News Sentinel president/publisher, and Mitch Steenrod, chief financial officer for Pilot Flying J. Malnati survived in the clubhouse as Blayne Barber and Matt Bettencourt (among four who tied for second place at 15-under, 269, who were in the final threesome), each missed birdie putts on No. 18 that would have would have forced a playoff.


The Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen approved a new Parks and Leisure Master Plan during its Aug. 8 meeting. Sue Stuhl, Parks and Leisure Services director, presented the plan during the meeting. “This guides how we are going to move forward,” Stuhl said. “While the plan is not required by the state, it is required for certain state grants. “One of the major changes as opposed to five years ago, we have strategic plans attached to our strategic plan goals.” Stuhl cited some of the major Items changing as a continued expansion of the volunteer program, online registration for park facility registrations, growth of classes and other activities by partnering with area businesses and nonprofits, expansions of greenways and the installation of smaller greenways. In other BOMA meeting news, the Board also approved the purchase of a boom arm for the new right-of-way tractor. The equipment will cost $25,000 and will

reach 14 feet high and 20 feet out, allowing maintenance crew to remain on flat ground while trimming somewhat sloping areas. The Beer Board approved licensure for the Cystic Fibrosis Golf and Partee event, scheduled for Sept. 19 and the new Restaurant Linderhof location, 12740 Kingston Pike, Suite 106. The Outdoor Classroom was discussed briefly during a special workshop prior to the BOMA meeting. Town Engineer Darryl Smith said the most significant changes to the plan included the addition of four parking spaces and the elimination of steps down to the creek. “The flood plain encroaches on more space than initially shown on the survey,” Smith said. Smith said he hopes to be able to incorporate the creek into the plan in another way. Project developers from McGill and Associates are working on a final plan, and Town Administrator David Smoak said he hopes a contract will be presented to BOMA within the next couple of months.

Farragut SERC greets new members: Nair, Trent ■


Two in, one soon out in terms of membership on Farragut Schools Education Relations Committee. Shyam K. Nair, a chemical engineer who has been a Knox County resident since 1987, and Kristen Trent, “a university professor teaching graduate and undergraduate education,” attended their first meeting during SERC’s monthly Tuesday meeting Aug. 6 in Town Hall boardroom. Although Nair said he “applied for a different position” with the Town, he added during the meeting, “I’m glad you selected me for this because of my PhD and

probably 25, 26 years of education … I think I can contribute somewhat more here, so I’m really happy to be here.” Moreover, “My wife just took a position in [Oak Ridge National Laboratory], it’s a voluntary position, where she will be helping DOE communicate their science and technology to students in and around Oak Ridge and Knoxville,” Nair added about what he labeled “Science Saturdays.” “So she’s in charge of that, so she will be looking for students to come and intern there. … We can probably form some communication, some ways we can bridge Oak Ridge National Lab See SERC on Page 4A

Farragut EDC discusses policereports increasing its ranks ■ ROBBY O’DANIEL

Farragut’s Economic Development Committee discussed the number of its membership and whether the member total should increase at its meeting Wednesday, Aug. 7. “The Board of Mayor and Aldermen every year appoints members to all of our board committees,” Town administrator David Smoak said. “With the EDC, you actually have four-year terms that are staggered. ... This last round, we had a lot of interest from the public in being on the EDC. The Board of Mayor and Aldermen elected to keep everybody the same on the committee, and we have nine members that are right now the maximum we have on the committee.” According to the EDC charter, the committee is made up of up to eight at-large members and one member the Board of Mayor and Aldermen appoints annually from its own body. The at-large member appointees are limited to two terms. “The Board of Mayor and Aldermen, since we had so many folks that were interested, just wanted to bring this back to the EDC to basically have your discussion or feedback on whether

or not you think nine is a good number,” Smoak said. “Do you think we need to increase that number a little bit? So really, it’s just an open discussion for the members to see if there’s any feedback we can give back to the BMA regarding your number.” The committee tabled it until the next meeting. Smoak elaborated on the level of interest. “We had three or four or five more people that had applied, so just a few more spots than we had,” he said. “And that’s typical for many of our committees. We may have more people apply for a certain committee than have the numbers on there, but this year, the board just wanted to ask that the EDC look at it and figure out if we need to keep the number the same, or do we need to increase the number and try to get more people to serve on the committee or not.” Previously the EDC had more than its current maximum. “We had a large number of people on the committee,” Smoak said. “We talked about it. The committee talked about it during our strategic planning process, recommended that we switch that number down to nine. It was a more manageable See EDC on Page 3A

Saturday morning wreck sends five to hospital

Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper William Satterfield surveys the damage to a 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee driven by Christian Matthew Jetton who was cited for reckless driving and other charges following a three-vehicle wreck around 8 a.m., Saturday morning, Aug. 10, on Kingston Pike. David Purvis

Rural Metro personnel extricate Troy Edward Mardesen from his 2008 Volvo after it was allegedly struck by a vehicle driven by Christian Matthew Jetton early Saturday morning, Aug. 10, on Kingston Pike in Farragut.


A Knox County man was cited for reckless driving, registration violation and financial responsibility after being involved in a three-car accident that sent three adults and two children to The University of Tennessee Medical Center Emergency Room. Christian Matthew Jetton, 18, of a Concord Farms Lane address was cited after Tennessee Highway Patrol Trooper William Satterfield, who arrived on the scene at 8:37 a.m., determined from witnesses statements the 2002 Jeep Grand Cherokee with expired license tags Jetton was driving westbound on Kingston Pike at about 8 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 10, allegedly crossed over the continuous center turn lane on Kingston Pike. Jetton’s vehicle allegedly struck the 2007 Ford F150 pickup truck driven eastbound by 53-year-old Paul Guertin of a Red Mill Lane address. Jetton’s vehicle stuck

presstalk • Regarding last week’s presstalk comment wondering if anyone else has noticed the mess of an intersection at Kingston Pike and Campbell Station … Yes ... I have, as well! And you are correct it does not even take into account school traffic, which now only magnifies the issue. It is truly absurd how little time the light allows for Southbound traffic in general, but turning left onto Kingston from there is especially miserable. This encourages traffic to cut-through Farragut school system roads, which is not good to have unnecessary traffic flowing through. It’s not like the light needs to stay green for 90 percent of the time for east/westbound traffic as while traffic can be backed up to the Farragut School entrance, the intersection can also be empty while the light is still green allowing for non-existent east/westbound traffic. Also, eastbound on Kingston Pike has a short turn time to turn north onto Campbell Station [Road] during rush hours. (Even though some can end up turning after all the westbound traffic clears since that side stays green forever.) This results in traffic avoiding going that way when heading to Turkey Creek direction and uti-

lizing Grigsby Chapel [Road]. Farragut, the Town has done so much to improve the drive through that area that is central to our town, please follow-up with the right people to get this fixed. • The presstalk last week concerning the Campbell Station Road at Kingston Pike intersection has prompted me to ask why is there no turn lane on South Campbell Station Road for those wanting to turn left into Aubrey’s or the bank? I have on numerous occasions been traveling north on South Campbell Station Road and tried to get into the left turn lane that feeds westbound Kingston Pike only to meet (and sometimes near head on) southbound Campbell Station Road traffic that has crossed over the double yellow line into oncoming traffic to make that turn. This situation is unsafe for anyone driving in this direction and it is equally unsafe for those making the left turn into Aubrey’s to block a southbound lane when there is heavy traffic at the intersection. Come Town, it’s only a little paint to make this area safer or should we name you in any litigation coming from a head-on collision?


With committee member Nancy Wentz and Julia Craze absent, SERC tabled its election of officers — chairman, vice chairman and secretary — for 2013-14 fiscal year until its September meeting. Among other business: • Barber announced he obtained “The Reading Partners Guide” and “Math Partners Guide” from Nashville’s PENCIL Foundation “to help, as I understanding it, coordinate the activities for those who are going to be volunteering” in Farragut schools. • Committee member Mike Singletary drafted a letter to Joe Carson, engineer with U.S. Department of Energy in Oak Ridge and professional volunteer activist who previously addressed SERC, updating SERC’s efforts to create a speaker’s registry as Carson had suggested.

and Farragut schools.” Trent, also a Farragut resident and a former kindergarten teacher, has two “young children” that includes “a 5-year-old that will start kindergarten next year at Farragut Primary. “I am very interested in the schools. Anything that I can do to help out. I’m very, very thankful to be a part of this community,” she said. Nair and Trent bring SERC’s committee total to seven, but that number will drop to six — until Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen add a replacement SERC member — with the upcoming departure of Russ Barber, he announced during the meeting. “I have a new assignment with my church” requiring “that I move to Nashville in a couple of months,” Barber said.

become more active, with the goal of moving at least 30 minutes five times a week. We want Tennesseans to eat more nutritious foods in healthy portions. That means eating more fruits and vegetables, whole grains, fish, leaner meats and less sugar and salt. We’re encouraging Tennesseans to avoid tobacco use in all its forms. Healthier Tennessee will bring together employers, health-care providers, health insurance companies, schools and community organizations in ways that promote healthier behavior. It is a statewide effort, but we believe our best chance for success is to focus on local communities. It is important to leverage strong health and wellness programs that are already happening across the state. Healthier Tennessee will use proven, best-practice programs and tools in workplaces, schools, places of worship and neighborhoods. We will measure progress and report results. We will have a rewards-and-recognition program for participation and achievement. It will include awards from the governor, a certification program for schools, workplaces, communities and faith-based organizations. It will include competition among participating organizations. We believe improving the health of Tennesseans will reduce the cost of health care in Tennessee, and it will also improve our state’s overall quality of life. I look forward to the impact that healthier behaviors can have on our state and our citizens.


The need for evacuation would be assessed by KEMA, and routes along with any other vital information would be announced by local media outlets.

Farragut High School Class of 1963 alumni who attended 50th Reunion celebration at Rothchild Catering and Conference Center Saturday evening, Aug. 10.

FHS Class of ‘63 celebrates 50th reunion ■


Charlie Cox was quick to make fun of his hairdo as a young boy in the early 1950s, that image called up on a projector screen for his fellow Farragut High School Class of 1963 alumni to enjoy. “Even kids have a bad hair day,” Cox said to possibly the longest moment of laughter during the class’s 50th Reunion celebration in Rothchild Catering and Conference Center Saturday evening, Aug. 10.

Thirty-nine of the class’s 86 graduates attended, as various other graduates also found lots of laughter upon their graduating pictures being flashed on screen with moments of reflection. Meanwhile, most classmates enjoyed catching up on happenings with those not seen in several years. Or several decades. “Lucky Hatcher, it’s probably been 40plus years,” classmate Ralph Henry said about his last contact with Hatcher. “And Tom Reed right here, it’s probably been at least 30, 35.”

Barbara Chambers Denman also has lots of catching up to do. “Johnny Dender, I haven’t seen him in a long time … probably 45 years,” she said. “And Ronnie Sabin, I hadn’t seen Ronnie since we left and went to Hiwassee College together. … And Janice Shaffer [Kyle], it’s been a while.” Also recognized were 1962-63 faculty members on hand: Lynn E. Sexton, basketball and baseball head coach, and Lendon Welch, football assistant plus track and field head coach. Sexton recalled Cox, Henry, Tommy Hall,

David Solomon and Don Muldrew as former players he coached who attended Saturday’s reunion. “I hadn’t seen Tommy Hall since he graduated, I don’t think,” Sexton said. In addition to lots of social catching up, fine dining and video recollections, events also included a table question-and-answer world events contest and entertainment from the “beach/rhythm and blue music” group “Boys Night Out.”

Family moves to stay with Farragut Primary


With many parents living in a subdivision along Choto Road happy to have their children attending the new Northshore Elementary School, the Sauls family had a different plan. “We love Farragut Schools. We were rezoned for Northshore but we moved and we’re happy to come back to Farragut,” said Mary Sauls, whose son, Luke, 5, was among scores of kindergarten children and parents attending Farragut Primary School Open House Friday morning, Aug. 9. Getting acquainted with his new teacher, first-year FPS kindergarten teacher Wendy Gilstrap, Luke said his goal in kindergarten was learning “to read.”

“He’s excited about meeting friends and being in a big school,” said Mary, who along with husband, Joey, also have a third-grader, John, attending Farragut Intermediate School after three years at FPS. Mary said the family’s FPS experience “has been wonderful, the teachers are excellent. … The teachers really know what they’re doing. They know how to handle things, I don’t have to worry. A lot of stress off the parents. “But they involve us in every way.” Eric and Tyra Haag are getting their first taste of daily school life as parents with oldest son, Noah, 5, also in Gilstrap’s class. “A lot of our friends have had their sons or daughters come here, so we know a lot of great things,” Haag said.

Be happy, it’s a choice Leilani, one of my subscribers to Make it Fun and it Will Get Done, wrote to me in response to one of my free daily emails that is either u p l i f t i n g , Pam humorous, t h o u g h t - Young Make it provoking or just plain Fun! silly. Here was the message which included a quote from Einstein, followed by my response to it. Einstein said, “We can't solve problems by using the same kind of thinking we used when we created them.” While I helped create an unhappy marriage for 15 years, I NEVER took advantage of my sense of humor as a powerful tool to change my circumstances. We can't be angry and joyful at the same time. Pick between the two today and watch your problems resolve or escalate. Leilani wrote in response to that post: “No kidding! I have a special talent. I can see the bright

side of absolutely anything. I’m not an eternal optimist. Those people drive me nuts. I’m just drawn like a magnet to silver linings—even when they’re rusty. “Several years ago, my best friend and I were driving halfway across the country. I had a good car, but a dummy spare, and I’d wanted a real spare. However, a real spare required a real rim, and rims were quite expensive, so I’d kept putting it off. Late one night we were run off the road by a semi-truck that swerved into our lane. We flew through the air with the greatest of ease—hitting the ground several times on the way—and finally came to rest upside down in the fast lane of the other side of the freeway. We climbed out of my totally smashed car (only my atlas lay between my head and the pavement) and staggered out on the road. A few moments later, as we stood in the median, shaken and shaking, I said, ‘Check it out! I’m not going to have to spring for that spare!’ My grandma once said to me, ‘You’re a lot happier when you’re happy.’ I like being happy.” I like being happy too. I learned it from my parents (mostly my dad). I remember once they spent a whole week planting a lawn. They rented a seed spreader and

one of those rollers that presses the seeds down and every day they were back outside working on the new lawn. Our house was on a slight hill and about 40 feet from the road. (It was enough of a slope to get a nice ride out of a sled in the winter.) No sooner had they finished the hard work, we had a rain storm typical of Washington's benevolence and my parents, my sister and I watched the storm from the living room window. We also witnessed all the grass seed get washed down the hill into the gutter. I think it was Dad who started to laugh first and then Mom chimed in. I was 13 and I remember laughing too probably because my parent's joy always rubbed off on me. Then my dad said, "Well, we’re gonna have the grassiest gutter in the neighborhood!"

mom2mom ministry set to kick-off Aug. 24


Tina Hulbert, co-leader of the mom2mom ministry at First Baptist Concord, still remembers the first meeting of the group she went to in 2010. “Someone invited me when I first started going back to church, and I did not have a lot of close Christian friends to help me through the struggles of motherhood,” Hulbert said. “And I went to my first meeting and one of the moms told, basically gave a testimony about having adopted a child and then two weeks later, the birth mother changing her mind and wanting the child back, and through that heartbreak, she continued to praise Jesus for getting her through and being her savior. And I was just so moved that a mom could go through that heartbreak and still praise God that I

knew that was something I wanted to be a part of.” The ministry has its kickoff event at 10 a.m., Saturday, Aug. 24, in the student gym at First Baptist Concord, Hulbert said. “The mission of mom2mom is to season the lives of moms with encouragement, Biblical truth and friendship that will result in spiritual growth,” she said. The mom2mom ministry has a regular monthly meeting with the theme this year of “encourage,” she said. “We hope to encourage our ladies with a balance of uplifting testimony and practical life application meetings,” Hulbert said. During the other weeks of the month is a Bible study, she said. Both the monthly meetings and the Bible study take place at the Fireside Room at First Baptist Concord.

Cathy Storm

‘Dream job’ for FDCC membership director ■


According to Cathy Storm, Tennessee will be the last of 12 states she’s lived in, as this Maryland native has split her career of more than 30 years between the “high-end” hospitality and real estate industries. Storm said she’s fallen in love with Farragut in general, and Fox Den Country Club in particular, after almost eight years in Knox County — which began with roughly six months in real estate before sales tanked. “As I tell new people that are coming here, it’s the easiest place I’ve ever lived. It’s just wonderful,” said Storm, who found her dream job as membership director at FDCC in March 2008. She has “a beautiful condo” in Fox Den adjacent to a FDCC golf hole. “Everything is so convenient. It’s so green. You drive down Virtue Road and you still see pastures. “I walk in here every day, I see a gorgeous golf course. I work in a beautiful building. My office, I have the best view of anybody in the building,” she added. After doing “odd jobs” that included “a little waitressing” while waiting for something special to open up for about one year after her Knox real estate career bottomed out, Storm “saw an ad in the paper” for Fox Den’s membership job. “I looked at it and I said, ‘that’s my job,’” Storm added. “It was right up my alley.” Insisting on an interview with FDCC general manager Dave Largent, Storm thought, “’All I

needed was to get in front of him.’” However, before that happened, Largent called Storm. “He said, ‘I’m sorry but I’ve hired someone.’ I was like, ‘no, this can’t be,’” she said. However, “a week went by and I got a phone call to come in for the interview,” Storm added. “The other person didn’t work out. She worked for a week and didn’t like it here and left.” Although admitting she expected to woo over Largent and the FDCC board immediately, “They made me go through the process … it took three interviews,” Storm said. “I’m as happy today as I was that day I was hired,” Storm said in July. “They had someone here that kind of just managed the membership, but they had never had a membership director before. So I had the wonderful opportunity of building this position hand-in-hand with the general manager, under his direction.” Upon kicking things off in March 2008, “We were through the roof the first year,” Storm said about obtaining new FDCC memberships, crediting Largent and other FDCC brass with “a well laid out plan.” “There were perceptions of what Fox Den was, and what we accomplished was overcoming those perceptions,” she added. “… Nobody had reached out to the community and said, ‘hey, we would like you to become a member here. Hey, we are fullfamily oriented country club. We cater to both golf and non-golf membership.”’

Burchett featured speaker at Farragut RC


Development of Farragut’s Campbell Station Park, which brought the Town a Knox County branch library, was greatly influenced by a Bearden man. Such influence by the late Charlie Burchett, World War II veteran and father of Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett, were recognized by Eddy Ford, former Farragut mayor. Ford recalled the park/library process while introducing Burchett as featured speaker during The Rotary Club of Farragut’s weekly Wednesday meeting, July 17, in Fox Den Country Club. While serving on Knox County Library Board “25 years ago” Charlie Burchett “was very instrumental and very supportive of the concept of accepting the donation of land by the town of Farragut for Knox County to build a branch library,” Ford said. Addressing the mayor specifically, Ford said, “It might be a good time to expand the [Farragut] Knox County library, and perhaps name the new wing ‘Charlie Burchett Wing.’” During his 16 years in Tennessee General Assembly as a state senator and state representative, Burchett said, “I think my record was 15 death threats in one weekend.” That led Burchett into a story about a mandatory “security detail” he was assigned, which included one encounter with former NBA superstar and radical fashion plate, Dennis Rodman.

said. Meanwhile, Gilstrap is a twin who is teaching three children who are twins. The other three twin siblings are right next door to Gilstrap, being taught by Becky Odom. There are reasons to split up twins. “As far as a social setting, you want [twins] to be able to interact and make their own set of friends,” said Gilstrap, who became an interim FPS firstgrade teacher last March. One of Gilstrap’s students who

That followed a dinner engagement in Nashville, which also involved Burchett’s security guard, “Buck,” and “a young Metro Police Officer.” While the senator was receiving a parking ticket from the officer, “About that time, Dennis Rodman walks up … he’s just all shades of ugly, I don’t know how to describe him; nose rings,” Burchett said to audience laughter. “He’s got his posse and he’s smoking this awful smelling cigar. … And he pulled that cigar out of his mouth and said, ‘Looks like the man is fixing to right you all a ticket.’ “About that time, Buck slings his jacket back and shows that Glock 9 millimeter [semi-automatic pistol], and I go, ‘The man’s driving the car,’” Burchett said he told Rodman, to more audience laughter. “Dennis Rodman looks at Buck and he says, ‘”I think I better be …’ and Buck [finishing Rodman’s thought, said] ‘getting the blank out of here?’ and [Rodman] said, ‘yeah, getting the blank out of here.’ “That was my one occurrence with Dennis Rodman, and I didn’t even give him my card to get me autographed picture,” Burchett added. Burchett also reviewed budget numbers and other statistics during his first mayoral term and made a bold prediction that weekly newspapers “are actually going to take over our dailies,” the latter of which are “run by multinational corporations.” is a twin, Caroline Hicks, 5, will have to get used to twin sister, Catie, being in Odom’s class. “I think it will be good for them,” said Jennifer Hicks, the twins’ mother. “Each child needs to have their own way and do their own thing. They’re a little bit nervous, but excited. … They are extremely close.” Another Gilstrap student, Eleanor Pattison, 5, was joined by older sister, Esther, 6, during the open house. “We love Farragut Primary, it is just such a sweet school,” said Sarah Pattison, Eleanor’s mother.

Youth Health Board giving local teens a voice ■


The Youth Health Board is made up of 27 Knox County high school students, nine of which come from West Knox County schools to serve this 2013-14 school year. “It’s actually comprised of high school students with the health department and Knox County schools as a way for students to have a voice in their community, improve leadership skills, communication skills and solve issues,” facilitator for the Youth Health Board Azieb Kidanu said. Building relationships is one of the fundamentals of the board. “There are so many programs that relate back to young adults, and to have that relationship is important. We want to build a stronger relationship between the healthy school team to coordinate with school health, and we wanted to make sure there would just be better communication around the healthy initiative,”

she added. Farragut High School senior Grace Baek is serving her second year on the board, because she believes it will help with her future endeavors. “Just because there’s so many opportunities to get to know other people, so I put myself out there … to explore different realms of everything so I can see at a more deep level. It makes me feel prepared for just life in general,” Grace said. Grace’s favorite part about the board is giving back to the community and the events they put on to do so. “I myself have interest in public health. I know I want to do something with help relations, with the government and what really impacted me was how much we do as a club. You can see direct results. Service we do through the health aspect of our community gives us a voice to use everywhere … a nice way for youth to be aware and improve it,” she said.

Tatum McGill, a junior at FHS, plans on making the most out of this opportunity during her first year on the board. “I think that students like us can use this opportunity to speak with other officials who can make a difference … public health students can make a voice throughout the community.” Tatum cannot wait to start the projects she heard Grace discuss

last school year, in addition to begin preparing for her own future. “I think this will give me an eye opener … a lot of these officials can help [me] see what is going on and what I can do about it myself to aid me in the future,” she added. The community service and volunteer work seems like a universal favorite among the

members, including sophomore Mariam Shakir from Hardin Valley Academy, who was chosen to serve her second year on the board. “A lot of high school students don’t know what’s going on and what the health issues are, so to be a part and get involved, I feel like it’s really important to know what’s going on in the community,” Mariam said.

Lutheran Church. Alarm bells went off upon realizing that local industry, “for the first time in their history had jobs, but East Tennessee was no longer filling them with the qualified work force that they needed,” Thomas added. Targeting Knox metropolitan area high school seniors looking for help getting into one of three local junior colleges, the local tnAchieves chapter then follows freshmen through an often difficult first year helping make sure that student is well established toward seeking a degree. “We went back to our 13 high schools here in Knox County. What we saw was we were graduating about 3,500 students ever year,” Thomas said. Of that, “about 1,200 weren’t pursuing any type of secondary education. … Those 1,200 students really

became our focus.” With the national economy beginning to struggle in 2008 while “college tuition was going up,” Thomas added, “We came up with this idea to provide any student in Knox County with what we call a last-dollar scholarship to one of the three local community colleges.” After obtaining any applicable Pell Grants and Hope Scholarships, “Whatever the student owed to the college after that we were going to pay directly to the college on the student’s behalf,” Thomas said. Crediting local businessman Randy Boyd for “raising $2.2 million in cash and pledges” toward getting knoxAchieves off the ground, “That first year we thought we had enough money that we could send 500 students to college,” Thomas said. “Tuition at that time was about $3,000 a year.”

choice to attend Wednesday mornings at 9 a.m. or Wednesday evenings at 6:15 p.m. “That way, for our working moms, they can come at night,” she said. “For our stay-at-home moms, they can come in the morning.” The monthly meetings open with prayer, she said. “And then we have our featured speaker, and then we break into small group with our Titus moms where the Titus moms will pray for the younger moms and talk about any successes or failures

each of the 11. Henry also lit a candle in memory of all deceased FHS administrators, faculty and staff serving during the 1962-63 school year. Also remembered were those Class of ’63 graduates who are ill, including one who “was on a transplant list” plus two others battling cancer. for that month,” Hulbert said. One does not have to be a member of First Baptist Concord to get involved with the group, she said. “At the heart of our ministry are our Titus moms, and these are experienced mothers who are willing to minister to younger moms, as directed in Titus 2 in the Bible,” she said. “... In Titus 2, it talks about, it charges the older women to teach the younger women how to love their husbands and children, and so we’ve taken that scripture and applied it to our ministry by utilizing our Titus moms to mentor, support and encourage our younger moms.”

Lessons change owner’s life Bill Jones Music celebrates 40th anniversary


Bill Jones’ earliest memory of music is his mother, Frances, making him take music lessons. Jones did not want to, but it changed his life. He began playing the organ when he was about 7 or 8, he said. “It’s obviously changed my life in many ways, but the biggest change was on Sept. 15, 1967, when I was asked to play the organ for a beauty pageant and two years later, married the girl I met there who has been my wife for 46 years,” Jones said. He grew up in Valparaiso, Ind., but he met his wife, Marjorie, at a harvest festival pageant in LaCrosse, Ind. He had never been there before. “I would have never met my See JONES on Page 2B

The Soyville Candle Company started as a hobby and turned into a family business. “I actually sold soy wax for a little while in a consulting role,” said Mike Such, owner of Junk Bee Gone. “I was selling soy wax worldwide, and during the process of selling the soy wax, I learned how to make candles. A hobby turned into a business

basically.” The business is owned by Mike Such’s wife, Tracy, and their two daughters, Courtney and Abigale, he said. “I was making the candles in the garage, and then the girls came out and basically started making candles with me, and then they started making candles and giving them to their friends,” Mike Such said. “That See CANDLE on Page 2B

Commissary asks Farragut residents to help find jobs


Three area women have united to help people find jobs, and they invite Farragut residents to join in their efforts. Rose Wood, her sister Wanda Carter and friend Janice Nelson opened American Commissary along 1209 E. Broadway, Lenoir City, July 1. They are planning a grand opening the first part of October. “We all have family and friends in the Farragut area,” Nelson said. “We would like them to come in and see what we offer.” Wood, managing director of American Commissary, explained the American Commissary is a small general merchandise store with a big goal – to help make jobs for people in the United States. “We have been asked why the store is called ‘American Commissary,’” Wood noted. She explained “American” stands for a country where anyone willing to work can have a job and achieve the “American dream.” “Commissary” stands for the achievement of that dream, she said. The idea for the shop came about when the women looked

around the past couple years and saw friends and neighbors unable to find work. “We’ve been talking about this for quite a while,” Carter said. “We thought it would be a good way to help our country and fellow man.” “Every time, if you sell a product, you are helping yourself and you are helping someone else, too,” Wood said. “The whole thing is a domino effect.” “I’ve lived here all my life,” Nelson said. “I believe strongly in the work ethic and for people to have a job and the chance at the American dream.” Wood said the women give first priority to local suppliers before looking at suppliers from other places. “We try to buy high-quality merchandise, gifts and so much more,” she said. “They are things people would want to buy and support the American workers,” Nelson said. The shop has art, pottery, jewelry and other items from local artisans. That merchandise also includes handmade wooden items, such as turkey calls made by Roger Cox of Clinton, walking canes, trash baskets from the Chair Factory of Gatlinburg, See COMMISSARY on Page 2B

wife had someone not called me to play the organ at this pageant,” he said. Bill Jones is the owner of Bill Jones Music, which is celebrating its 40th anniversary in August. “Jerry Godolphin and Bill Jones started Kimball Piano & Organ Centers in 1973, and then in the late 1980s, Jerry left to pursue other interests, and at that time, I changed the name to Bill Jones Music since it was just me,” he said. Before they started the business, Godolphin was a sales representative for the Kimball factory, Jones said. “I’m from Indiana but at that time, I was working for a [piano] dealer in North Carolina, and I had known Jerry for years,” Jones said. “And he decided he wanted to get off the road and leave Kimball, and the retail company I

some handmade wooden furniture and items from the Cherokee and Navajo Indian Reservations. The American Commissary also offers American-made clothing, copper napkin rings, tablecloths and napkins made to order and baking sheets. “They say once you buy one of the sheets you never have to buy another,” Wood said. Wood said the idea is for people to contribute to help make a difference, so he, Carter and Nelson encourage people to bring in their products to sell. “If everyone does his part, the community can make a difference,” she added. Wood noted business has been good. “We hope to be in business for a long time because we see this

led into fundraising, so they started making candles and fundraising with them for their respective teams or for student government, that type of thing, for fundraising for the school. We then got authorized as an authorized vendor for fundraising in all of Knox County [Schools], and it just kept going from there.” Candles from the business are available online or at Green Earth Emporium, Encore Interiors off North Peters Road and The Town Framery, he said. They also are in gift shops in North Carolina and South Carolina and Pigeon Forge, he said, and other stores across the United States. The family makes the candles, he said. “We all do different facets of

I didn’t know what else to do, so we started our own business and that was kind of how it went. ... I honestly thought that maybe if I was lucky, this small business enterprise would hold up long enough until I could find a real job. And 40 years later, I’m still here, haven’t found a real job.” The business, located at 10412 Kingston Pike in the Lovell Heights area, is a Yamaha dealer and Allen church organ dealer, among other brands. The business also offers private lessons in piano, organ, guitar, violin and vocal, he said, as well as music programs for different age groups. as an outlet for people who want to sell products and they don’t want to open a store front,” she said. “I’m really enjoying it [the business] because we are helping create jobs and meeting a lot of people,” Carter said. People interested in selling their products in the American Commissary can contact Wood. The items are sold on consignment, Carter said. One of these suppliers is Deborah Craig of Loudon, who sells quilts, children’s clothing, knitting, crocheting and other old-fashioned needlework in the American Commissary. Craig said she and her husband found out about the business from a local newspaper article. While she has an online “shop,” Craig said her husband suggested she find another outlet for her merchandise. it,” he said. “We’ve had some help during the busy season to help us out with them too, but for the most part, during the year, we can handle most of it ourselves. Now when fall comes and business picks up, we’ll get some people to help us out.” He detailed what makes the company’s candles unique. “It’s 100-percent soy wax, organic wood wicks, and then each fragrance is tested within the wax to make sure it gets the proper scent throw,” he said. The company has three different lines of candles: original, essentials and winescents. “Our winescents are made out of recycled wine bottles, and the scents are that of popular wines like merlot, cabernet,” he said. The business has over 50 scents across the three lines, he said. The scents are chosen based on popularity.

2013 volleyball season is underway Realigned District 4-AAA has a new look

KEN LAY Correspondent

The 2013 high school volleyball season is underway and District 4-AAA has a new look. This season, Hardin Valley Academy joins the toughest Class AAA league. The Hawks replaced Knoxville Catholic High School, which landed in District 4-AA after realignment. HVA is looking forward to facing the stiffer competition. The Lady Hawks reached the regional semifinals before being eliminated by District 4-AAA Tournament champion Farragut. Hardin Valley coach Mike Rosenke said things will be tougher for his squad, which joins the conference that includes the Lady Admirals, Bearden (which won the Region 2-AAA Tournament and went on to finish fourth in the state tournament), Maryville, William Blount, Heritage, Lenoir City and West. “I think [District 3-AAA and District 4-AAA] are close but I think District 4 is better from top to bottom,” said Rosenke, who recently began his fourth season as the Lady Hawks’ head coach. “In this district, we’ll be challenged every night. “Last year, we had nights in the district where we weren’t really challenged. The level of play, night in and night out will be stronger.” Hardin Valley was District 3AAA runner-up in 2012.

Meanwhile, Farragut and Bearden, the two oldest West Knox County rivals, dominated the district and the region last season. The Lady Bulldogs (45-8 in 2012) beat the Lady Ads in the Region 2-AAA championship last season. That victory avenged a District 4-AAA championship loss to Farragut. At FHS, Susan Davidson recently opened her fourth season as the Lady Admirals’ head coach and she and her squad have some high hopes for the 2013 campaign. “We discuss our expectations in practice every day,” Davidson

said. “We hope to have a very successful season but we have lots of work to do.” Farragut reached the Sectionals last season despite spending most of last year battling injuries, but Davidson said that her team must stay healthy this season. “That really caught up to us in the end,” she said. “Our district race is going wide-open this year and it all depends on who stays healthy and who can get the job done.” The Lady Ads also have plenty of veteran players back from last season. Top returners include:

Tessa Watson (senior, setter); Aditi Rangnekar (a senior right side player who missed last season with a knee injury); Emma Milstead (a junior setter/middle blocker/outside hitter/ defensive specialist who was named to the all-KIL Team in 2012); Raegan Grooms (a junior outside hitter who missed most of last season due to injury but returned in

time to help the Lady Ads win the district title); Natalie Hartman (a junior outside hitter who can be a factor from every position on the floor) and Sarah Whitney (junior, middle blocker). Farragut enjoyed a successful campaign last year and Watson See VOLLYBALL on Page 4B

Red-hot Roach finishes 8-under at NSO


Already with three top-10 finishes on the Tour this season, and No. 26 on the money list ($132,298), third-year pro Wes Roach turned his game up a notch Friday during News Sentinel Open at Fox Den County Club. This Webb School of Knoxville former state champ turned around a disappointing 1-over 72 Thursday to fire a 4-under 67 Friday — chipping in twice for birdies before ending with a nifty approach shot on 18. Roach sank a 4-foot birdie putt on No. 18 to barely make the cut (3-under, 139). He finished NSO with a sizzling 4-under round Sunday, ending 8-under (276) overall. Roach said he did something

out of the ordinary before his big moment on 18. “I usually try not to look at any leaderboards, but kind of noticed the cut went from [minus] 2 to [minus] 3, so I knew what I needed to do there on 18,” Roach said. “I was fortunate to hit a good wedge in there and make a putt.” Versus Thursday’s 1-over, “I think I was a little more relaxed today,” Roach said. “I chipped in twice today; at No. 7 and again there at No. 13.” Chase Carroll, however, was dealing with the frustration of hitting “great putts” that still didn’t find the bottom of the cup, marking the second News Sentinel Open in three years where the exBearden Bulldog fell one shot See WEBB on Page 4B

Two hopeful signs for Farragut football, as the Admirals make their second consecutive trip to KDB in what has become a tradition season-opening game. The two square off starting at 7:30 p.m., Thursday, Aug. 22. Meanwhile, Bearden travels to District 2-AAA power Sevier County for a 7:30 p.m. kickoff Friday, Aug. 23. Hardin Valley Academy’s season begins Friday, Aug. 30, hosting archrival Karns.

this year we won’t sneak up on people. Expectations, however, remain lofty at BHS. “Our expectation is to win the district,” McGinnis said. “Our strengths are passing and setting. We should have one of the best back rows in the district.” Top returners for the Lady Bulldogs include: junior Carrie McGinnis (a setter who received all-state honors last season); Rachael Horn (senior,

outside hitter); Amari Bellard (sophomore, defensive specialist/libero); Eleni Georgiafundis (a senior libero, who sat out last season due to an ACL injury) and Mia Owens (a sophomore outside hitter who was the District 4-AAA Rookie of the Year). That talented core group of veterans will be joined by a talented freshman class, according to coach McGinnis. While Bearden’s back row is among the best, the Lady

Bulldogs must fill the void left by the graduation of 2012 Player of the Year Kristen Randolph, who was one of the county’s best hitters. She graduated and must be replaced. “We’re trying our best to develop our young hitters,” McGinnis said. “We lost our best hitter in Kristen Randolph. She was the Player of the Year and it will be hard to replace her. “We are looking to develop our freshmen and sophomores.”


champ in the early 1990s, he announced it’s time to retire — at least for the time being — looking to spend more time with 4year-old son, Gage, and wife, Jennifer. Firing a 1-under 141 and failing to make the cut at NSO, Willis has played in only a handful of tournaments this year without much success. “I’m actually looking into the

process of becoming a teacher now. I’ve been talking to WindRiver [Lenior City],” Willis said. “They’ve been gracious enough to let me start teaching over there.” As for his young son, “I’d much rather be pitching him baseballs, playing Leggos, watching cartoons than out on driving range on in Boise, Idaho or Springfield, Mo.,” Willis said.

short of making the cut. “I think today I probably had at least five or six putts that looked dead in but would lip and just didn’t fall in,” said Carroll, who finished 2-under 140. For Garrett Willis, a former PGA Tour champion and two-time Farragut High School state

said the team is expecting more of the same this season. “We have a lot of options,” Watson said. “We have a great offense and we have options and we can also move some people around but we’re just going to take things one game at a time.” Watson also said that she’s looking forward to having the Lady Hawks join the district. “We’re looking forward to having another challenge,” she said. In addition to the savvy veterans, Farragut has some talented newcomers who include freshmen Alexis Parker (outside hitter/middle blocker), Madi Howell (defensive specialist) and Anne Abernathy (middle blocker). Davidson said her squad’s major strength is having a core group that is battle-tested. She noted that her team’s weakness is defense. “We need to continue to build up our defense and we need to continue to improve there.” At Hardin Valley, the Lady Hawks don’t have a senior on the roster but that doesn’t mean that HVA lacks leadership. The team has six returning juniors who saw significant playing time last year. “Volleyball is a year-to-year sport and last year, we graduated three seniors and had another player who decided not to return,” said Rosenke, who guided the Lady Hawks to a 44-13 record last year. “We lost four starters and this year, we have six or seven good players who are all juniors. “We’re also sprinkling in some freshmen and sophomores. We’re hoping to be playing our best volleyball in October. I think that, last year, we peaked in September.” Top returners for the Lady Hawks include: Madi Hylton (junior, setter); Lacy Cantrell (junior,

middle blocker); Maura Emert (junior, outside hitter); Sarah Wysor (junior, opposite player); Chase Rathfoot (junior, libero) and Magen Payne (junior, outside hitter). Junior Cherise Kamerman, a middle blocker, is the team’s top newcomer according to Rosenke. Deep postseason runs are nothing new to the Lady Hawks but the new district will make things tougher. Cantrell and Hylton, however, don’t seem to mind. “I kind of like to be the underdog,” Cantrell said. “We were playing these teams anyway. “Coming into a new league, we will have a lot of close games. I don’t think that we’re going to have one game that’s not going to be close.” Hylton agreed. “We know that the teams are going to be tougher and we put in a lot of hard work to prepare for that,” Hylton said. “We’re excited. The whole dynamic is going to change. “But the juniors have all played together a lot and I think we all work well together.” Rosenke said that his team strength is chemistry. The Lady Hawks’ major weakness is lack of communication. “This is a fun group,” he said. “They’re coachable, but when you don’t have a group of extroverts you have to find creative ways to teach them how to communicate.” Meanwhile at Bearden, the Lady Bulldogs enjoyed their most successful season in recent history. Bearden took the volleyball world by surprise but second-year head coach David McGinnis said he knows that won’t be the case in 2013. “I had T-shirts made with targets on them because I know that we will have a target on our backs,” McGinnis said. “Last year, we snuck up on a lot of people but

Special teams, they killed us with those guys on returns.” As for injuries, “Christian Jetton, he was in an automobile wreck last Saturday [Aug. 10],” Courtney said. “But he’s fine. He had some stiches in his ankle.” “Everybody else should be back” for Dobyns-Bennett. Overall, “I feel like the defense right now is playing well,” Courtney said.

That included a 14-yard touchdown run in KOC Kick-Off Class versus Central (7-7 tie) in Neyland Stadium Thursday, Aug. 15. “Sometimes we’ll put him in there and motion him back out,” FHS head coach Eddie Courtney said, adding that Williams’ backfield carries this season “will depend on what kind of defense we’re facing.

Senior running back/defensive back Malachi Horton had four carries for 40 yards against Halls, plus hauling in a 7-yard TD pass. Defensively, his minus-yardage stop late in the jamboree helped turn back a Red Devils “red zone” march. “He’s a good athlete, got a lot of
