FHS, HVA bare feet for soles ■


Perhaps Debbie Sayers was the perfect catalyst for a joint charity effort between Farragut High School and Hardin Valley Academy. “I was walking by the car that was sitting in our garage, and it had a bunch of shoes in it that I needed to take to Goodwill,” said Sayers, former STEM Academy dean at HVA whose now curriculum principal at FHS, about how the recently initiated 2 Blues 4 Shoes campaign began. “And I thought, ‘Oh yeah, I know of kids who have done service projects with Soles for Souls before,” Sayers added about the

schools’ friendly competition to collect a minimum of 1,000 pair of “cover the feet” shoes or boots of all sizes — no sandals or flipflops — for those in need Oct. 431. The 2 Blues 4 Shoes effort kicked off, literally, when the schools met in football at FHS’s Bill Clabo Field last Friday evening, Oct. 4. Principals Michael Reynolds of FHS and Sallee Reynolds of HVA (husband and wife) were found barefoot in a pre-game ceremony promoting the drive, along with other administrators, teachers and students, including the schools cheerleaders and dance teams.

Mosquito spraying continues in Choto ■

KCS to host ‘Insight Sessions’


Despite much above average mosquito populations in the Farragut area due to a wet spring-through-August period in 2013, Knox County has not recorded any West Nile Virus cases as of late September. What is anticipated as “one last spraying” to kill mosquitoes during the final month of their season — May through October — is a follow-up spraying in the Choto Road/Heron’s Pointe area from 9 p.m. to midnight, Thursday, Oct. 10. It’s a regular follow-up spraying two weeks after an initial spraying in the same area Thursday, Sept. 26, due to Knox County Health Department trapping mosquitoes that tested positive for West Nile. Areas sprayed include Amber Woods, Bayview West, Choto Farms, Heron’s Point, Livery, Mallard Bay, Tanglewood, Walnut Grove and Woods at

While Wanda Lacy was exhibiting modesty after being named 2013-14 State Teacher of the Year by Tennessee Department of Education, it was left to Seth Smith, Farragut High School assistant principal, to signal No. 1. Smith joined Lacy alongside a smartboard in her FHS advanced placement calculus classroom Monday morning, Oct. 7.

FHS’s Lacy: top educator ■


Wanda Lacy went out of her way to say that “many teachers at Farragut High School are among the best in the state.” But for all Lacy’s modesty after being named 2013-14 State Teacher of the Year by Tennessee Department of Education, this FHS advanced placement calculus teacher is especially excited about one of her perks.


“I’m extremely excited to meet the president of the United States,” Lacy said about meeting President Barack Obama thanks to advancing to National Teacher of the Year awards ceremony in Washington, D.C. later this year. Math department chair at FHS in her 30th year at the school teaching math, Lacy is the school’s first-ever honoree at this level according to Seth Smith, FHS See LACY on Page 5A


Got any good ideas about how to improve Farragut schools, and therefore improve Knox County Schools? Dr. Jim McIntyre Jr., KCS superintendent, and his staff will be listening closely when traveling to FHS for one of six Insight Sessions, a chance for parents, older students and the public at large to share ideas, starting at 6 p.m., Tuesday, Oct. 15, in the school’s library. Ideas from these Insight Sessions will be considered in KCS’s next Excellence For All Children five-year strategic plan, dubbed “Knox Schools 2020,” which begins next school year. “We’re basically asking three questions. We’re asking: ‘What’s good? What’s not? What’s next?” McIntyre said. “What are some of the successes that we’ve seen? … What are some areas where we need to give more focus and attention to?’” For example, “Should we be thinking about intergrading more technology?

Museum dedicates plaque to first Farragut mayor ■


Farragut Folklife Museum members, friends and family turned out to honor the late Mayor Robert H. “Bob” Leonard Monday, Sept. 30. The crowd watched as Malcolm Shell, former museum committee member, unveiled a plaque to the Town’s first mayor.

“I consider it an honor tonight to dedicate this plaque to Mayor Leonard,” Shell said before introducing Leonard’s family: his wife Marie; sons, Rob and Pat; daughter, Beth Bledsoe and her husband, Jerry and granddaughter, Maggie Bledsoe. The plaque reads Leonard, who died Nov. 12, 2012, was “instrumental in the formation of the Farragut Folklife Museum.”

He served on the museum committee from 1996 to 2012. “I think it’s very nice,” Marie Leonard said about the dedication. “It’s very good they wanted to do this.” Joining Marie at the dedication were son, Pat; Sheri Twohig, also a member of the family and Beth, Jerry and Maggie Bledsoe. “Oh, well of course, we’re excited about it,” Pat said. “One

of my father’s great loves was this building and the Farragut Folklife Museum. “So, the fact that there’s going to be a plaque here for him, obviously, is something for which he would be quite pleased,” he said. “The Folklife Museum and the parks were his two great loves,” he added. “He loved this Town; he loved the parks; and the museum was a

big, big thing for him,” Beth Bledsoe said. “He was very proud of it.” Pat Leonard said the museum started in a closet at the old Russell House. “It’s come a long way,” he added. Shell said the first mayor left many legacies but one legacy left See LEONARD on Page 2A

unsung has been the establishment of Farragut Folklife Museum. Since its inception in 1986, Shell said many visitors have passed through the doors and left with a better understanding of the local history. “The museum has given them [newcomers] a sense of belonging, and that is as Mayor Leonard would have wanted it,” Shell said. “Without Bob Leonard, they would never have had that feeling of community that we offer newcomers.” He unveiled two plaques, one

of which was dedicated to the late mayor and the other lists the names of founding museum members. “It’s a special event,” Alderman Ron Honken said about the Sept. 30 dedication. “Mayor Bob Leonard is such a legacy in this community,” Honken said. “He’s such an integral part of the history of this Town. He had such a vision for it, and the commitment that he made, especially with that group of folks who founded our community, is something that is so special; and unfortunately, so few really know the story.” “What a great way to honor him,” the alderman said. “That

• Oct. 1: Knox County Sheriff’s Office dispatched an officer to a Fleenor Road residence to investigate a burglary. Upon arrival, complainant told officer she left the residence at about 7:30 a.m. and returned that evening around 6 p.m. to discover her front door was unlocked. Complainant found evidence an unknown suspect used a pry bar to force open a downstairs bedroom window. Several drawers and cabinets around the house had been opened and rifled through in the upstairs master bedroom, closet, dining room and master bedroom and bathroom downstairs. The back door to the residence also was found unlocked. Nothing appeared to be missing. • Oct. 1: Police arrested a 27-yearold man for attempting to steal a Levi brand belt from Kohl’s department store in Farragut. The man was transported to the Knox County Detention Center. • Sept. 30: A Smith Road resident reported to police an unknown person entered her two unlocked vehicles while they were parked in her driveway and rummaged through the glove boxes and consoles scattering the contents throughout the front seats and floors. •Sept. 30: A Brookline Point resident reported to police an unknown person entered two vehicle parked in the

residence driveway and rummaged through the glove boxes and consoles scattering contents over the front seats and floor. Both vehicles were unlocked. • Sept. 28: A Scioto Point resident reported to police that upon arriving home after being away for eight days, she discovered the rear door of the residence open and glass on the floor and several pieces of jewelry had gone missing. Value of the loss was more than $5,000. • Sept. 28: Police responded to the Weigel’s Farm Store near Old Stage Hills on a burglary call. Video from the store showed a male of unknown race or age dressed in a camo jacket using an unknown tool to pry open the front door of the store. When the door opened the alarm activated and the lights in the store began flashing. The suspect fled the scene and never entered the business. • Sept. 27: A representative of Kroger Marketplace off Brooklawn Street in Farragut reported to police four unknown suspects took four cases of beer and left without paying. Complainant stated the suspects entered the store and went straight to the alcoholic beverage isle and grabbed four 24-packs of Bud Light and ran out with the beer and left in a brown SUV. The vehicle license plate number was given to police.

• Sept. 27: Police were dispatched to a Fox Den Drive residence to investigate a reported residential burglary. The investigating officer reported the rear door into the garage appeared to have been forced open causing the deadbolt to break through the wooden doorframe. A witness stated a tan van was parked in the cul-de-sac the morning of the burglary. Missing were several jewelry pieces, passports and prescription medicine, all of which was kept in a safe that was stored in the master bedroom walk-in closet. Value of the loss was about $20,000. • Sept. 27: A Hickory Woods Road woman reported to police an unknown suspect gained entry into her vehicle and took several items including a Rolex wristwatch and Louis Vuitton sunglasses. Estimated loss is more than $5,000. • Sept. 26: Police were advised by a Lake Park Circle man he suspected an unknown person had tried to burglarized his house by entering through his garage door. Complainant stated when he left his house his garage door was closed and intact. On his return the next day he discovered his garage door had been dented in at the top. Entry into the garage was not made. Damage is about $700.

will be something that will lead to questions about the man versus just the myth.” Alderman Jeff Elliott said he thought the presentation was very well done, and the plaque was very fitting. “It’s certainly a terrific honor for Mayor Leonard and very well deserved,” Elliott said. Mayor Ralph McGill said the Town’s beginnings had a tough start. He recalled after the Town had the referendum to incorpo-

rate, the City of Knoxville sued the Town, asking the judge to throw out its election. “That’s the way it went for the first couple of years, so being able to have a vision a few years later of something as nice as a museum is admirable,” McGill said. “You must have to persevere,” he said. “It’s worth it.” “I thought the presentation of the plaque was a great commemoration for the hard work and

dedication he had to our Town and how it developed, said Mike Rothman, a charter member of the museum with wife, Kay. It’s a great place for families to live.”

presstalk • I agree that something should be done about homeowners who throw their grass in the street. Besides being unsightly the grass can go into storms drains messing and clogging them up. Also as the grass sits in the street it decays and weeds and grass start growing and overtime the curb and side of the road deteriorate. To me this is as inconsiderate as someone throwing trash out in the street. It’s not that difficult or rocket science to either cut your grass without throwing it in the street or just use a blower and blow it off the road. • To the man who left his wallet at Kroger [Marketplace] off Brooklawn [Street in Farragut], I found your wallet after you left it on the register. I don’t trust any of the other employees to give it back if you were to come looking for it. If you want it, I hid it behind a stack of Michael Bublé CDs. Last time I checked, it is still there. Peace and love. • In response to the article about vertical planning at

671-TALK Farragut High School, shame on that principal for saying “I think the data is going to show we are boring those kids.” It’s not enough that the public bashes teachers all the time, now we have a principal bashing his own teachers. • I just wanted to say thanks to the farragutpress for the excellent volleyball coverage for the community. It’s been much better this year than in the past and we truly appreciate the farragutpress covering volleyball in the regular season. • I live in Fox Den [subdivision] and I was just curious. After I leave this message I think I will call the town of Farragut. I have four young kids and I have just been noticing a lot of homeless people walking down Kingston Pike. I noticed several, like five in one week, kind of wandering with their things down Grigsby Chapel [Road] and I have a daughter that is 15 who one day went like, “I don’t think I want to go for a jog anymore by myself,” and my 7-year-old

noticed them. … In the little log cabins over by Apple Cake Tea Room is a Tennessee Knoxville Mission that’s the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter Day Saints and I was just curious how that even got approved in Farragut. … I love the missions and that there is a place to help out anyone in need. I think a lot of churches do that. I think I like the area downtown where they’re together and the police can kind of keep an eye on things when they’re all grouped together. I was just kind of curious. I just don’t like that maybe some homeless people are just getting dropped off, they’re getting rides with truckers and getting dropped off at Watt Road and I see them wandering down Kingston Pike, Grigsby Chapel, Smith Road and I was just alarmed. I was just curious if I’m the only person noticing this. • Yes, it’s time that we do allow those that have carry license to carry their firearms in parks in Farragut. Tennessee is a carry state. Those that go

through the courses and training are very well behaved, very good citizens, and without a police force in the Town, having citizens, responsible citizens, is quite a good idea. We have very open gun laws in the state of Tennessee and as the record proves we have had very few, if any, incidents with concealed [sic] carry holders creating any sort of problem. It’s definitely time for Farragut to allow this to take place. Thank you very much and may God bless. • Editorial freedom is a wonderful concept, but it does come with its responsibilities.

Jefferson, Bass keynote FWK Chamber breakfast


The Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce’s 2013 Breakfast Speaker Series continued with Dr. Bill Bass and Jon Jefferson speaking at Fox Den Country Club Tuesday, Sept. 24. The date also marked the release of the two’s latest novel, “Cut to the Bone.” Heather Davis described herself as an avid fan of their novels. She anticipated she would start reading the new book next week most likely. “I just started [Jefferson-Bass novel] ‘The Inquisitor’s Key’ recently because we moved, and we’ve been tied up,” Davis said. “So I’m reading that one right now. And I mean, I’ll probably, I read it after the kids are in bed, so it’s like 10 [minutes] to 1 in the morning, so as soon as I finish that, I’ll start on this, next week probably.” She said it takes her only about three nights to finish one of the novels. Davis had never heard the two speak before, and moments prior to the speakers beginning, Davis

described her anticipation level as “on a scale of one to 10, I’m at a 10.” Afterward, Davis called the speaking fantastic. “I mean not only was it just great for information gathering, I loved learning the history of the Body Farm and going back and seeing the old pictures and seeing how much effort actually, Dr. Bass actually did himself, I mean put into starting it, so it’s really neat,” she said. “But I loved just the humor. They made it so enjoyable. I could have listened for a few more hours, so this was a wonderful event.” Davis’ enthusiasm impacted her son, Eli. “My 10-year-old had a report in his fourth-grade class at the new Northshore Elementary, and they were supposed to pick one famous scientist,” she said. “And they had a small list of criteria, and they had a little piece of paper.” Eli chose Bass, she said. “Eli wanted to do Dr. Bass because he knows about him through my reading and just really liking him,” she said. Eli drew Bass and wrote a syn-

At FHS and all other Insight Sessions, “We’ll start with a large group, then we’re going to break down into smaller groups,” McIntyre said, wishing to hear “every voice and every person,” some of whom may be intimidated by speaking up in a larger group. “I would say 10 to 12 people” per smaller group, which will meet in classrooms. “A trained group of facilitators” will lead those smaller sessions. “Then we’ll come back together as a big group right at the end and sort of talk about, ‘What were some of the big ideas’ that came out of those smaller group conversations.” Other “mechanisms that we are going to use” for feedback include “some focus groups and some surveys and some one-onone interview of some key stakeholders,” McIntyre said.

Montgomery Cove. “We have no problems down there … the community, they want us in there,” said Ronnie Nease, KCHD director of environmental health, about Choto area residents. West Nile Virus is most dangerous “to the elderly and immune-compromised people. Children are very seldom affected by West Nile Virus.” According to Nease, West Nile Virus occurs in mosquitoes when it bites crows, blue jays or horses. That mosquito develops West Nile with the blood it carries from those animals, the original host of the virus, before biting a human. “The chance of that occurring is very, very small,” Nease said. Nease said his department also checks dead crows and blue jays, “the two most susceptible to West Nile Virus,” which also serves as “an early indicator” in a given area. However, no dead birds with West Nile have been found in the Farragut area, Nease added. With all people required to be inside when the KCHD truck comes by to spray — if not, the truck will bypass that specific area — Nease added that its mosquito-killing “chemical” can cause respiratory problems if coming into direct or prolonged contact during a spraying. “There’s a lot of people who are sensitive to the spray,” Nease added. “If you inhale it you go to fresh air. … The chemical we use is as safe as we could find. It was approved by the Board of Health back when we started this program.” Though “this year’s been a really bad year for mosquitoes to be out there” due to much above average rainfall according to Nease, he added that West Nile “was stronger in Tennessee last year than it is this year looking at the data.” In 2012, “There were 33 cases statewide, and Knox County had two [neither in the Farragut area],” Nease said. “And that was the first [Knox] cases that we’d had in five years.” As of late September this year, “there are 12 cases statewide, and we have no human cases in Knox County,” Nease said. A relatively dry September and cooler nights late in the month have combined to “slow down mosquito activity,” Nease said. “Our numbers in our traps have gone drastically down. “Hopefully in the next two to four weeks [mid to late October] we’ll be through the season.” In case of rain at any point during the three-hour period Thursday, Oct. 10, Nease said KCHD would have to stop spraying until it quits. Further spraying that night would be in doubt with prolonged rain. Any canceled spraying Oct. 10 would not be made up.

With HVA planning to have a donation barrel at the entrance gate prior to its two remaining home football games (Friday, Oct. 11 versus Bearden and Thursday, Oct. 17 versus West), both schools also will accept donations through Thursday, Oct. 31, during school hours (8:15 a.m. to 3:45 p.m. Monday through Friday). Upon entering each school, donators will be directed where to drop off their shoes at both schools. Farragut’s Leadership Initiative officers manned the entrance gate at last Friday’s football game to accept donations and get the word out about 2 Blues 4 Shoes. Senior Alexis Brinkman, FHS Leadership Initiative and Interact Club vice president, said, “I think it’s a great idea.

assistant principal. “I was stunned,” said Lacy, surrounded by family members and FHS principal Michael Reynolds, upon hearing her name called as the state’s top teacher during a TDE awards banquet in Nashville Thursday, Oct. 3. “It comes from years of working at Farragut High School and the expectations of the Farragut parents and students and administrations, and our own expectations of excellence. … We’re very competitive.” While senior Ethan Young, FHS Student Government

without shoes.” An idea that only got going in the final few days of September, “Mr. Reynolds wanted to start a new tradition between the two schools that was based on cooperation and teamwork rather than rivalry,” Sayers said. While Farragut’s Leadership Initiative class is in charge of facilitating that school’s 2 Blues effort, including promotional efforts, Hardin Valley’s National Honors Society is doing the same according to each respective principal. Having talked to Sayers, Sallee Reynolds said, “I thought it was a great idea, so we decided to move forward. “I’ll probably sent out either weekly e-mails, mass phone calls,” she added about further promotion. Michael Reynolds said, “We wanted to show the true meaning of competition, that everything just doesn’t have to be a bitter rivalry. … And to culminate it into something that is good for the community.” Association president, has been well versed about Lacy’s reputation, this semester’s advanced placement calculus is his firstever class with Lacy. “She is definitely well renowned,” he said. “She teaches probably the top level of math at Farragut. She’s just an amazing teacher. “I think the thing that sets her apart a lot of the time is just how knowledgeable she is,” Young added. “She has a great mastery of all different kinds of math, and she’s able to pull it into the classroom. And she’s also so passionate about what she does. She loves teaching. She loves being there to help students learn.

“She definitely has a great mastery of technology. … It makes it a lot more engaging for students, and she works hard to make that happen.” Senior Jamie Pratt, president of FHS French Honor Society, also is taking a Lacy’s advanced placement calculus. “I had heard that her class is difficult, but that she would help you get a good grade and learn everything and do well on the AP test,” Pratt said. “She’s more open and just frank with you about things than some other teachers. And she makes sure that you know everything. … She’s funny with us and she tells jokes and makes sure that we

really understand.” Dr. Jim McIntyre Jr., superintendent of Knox County Schools, said, “We are excited and proud to call Wanda Lacy our own, as an example of the incredible teachers we have in the Knox County Schools.” Reynolds said, “For the district and then the state to recognize her contributions and hard work is something that we can only applaud. “With her lifetime devoted to education and to students, you like to see those things recognized,” he added.

Having played in the Orange Bowl 21 years apart as college football stars at Tennessee, Orvis Milner, now 89, and Richard Pickens, 66, share Clarity Pointe Memory Care Assisted Living in Farragut as home. They also share interesting friendship circles. A quarterback/defensive back in the late 1940s who played for coaching legend Gen. Robert Neyland, Orvis’ circle of “close friends” used to include some alltime great athletes according to

his daughter, Mary Milner. How about the late Johnny Unitas, NFL Hall of Fame quarterback, and golfing legend Arnold Palmer, with whom Milner teamed to “build a golf course together in South Florida,” said Mary, the youngest of Orvis’ three children. “And Whitey Ford,” New York Yankees Hall of Fame pitching great, she added, “and Dave Thomas,” founder of Wendy’s restaurants, as other golf course partners with Orvis. Orvis said Unitas and Doug Atkins, NFL Hall of Fame defensive lineman and former Vol All-

American, “used to come by our house.” Mary added that her father and the NFL greats “were close. … They used to come to our house a couple of times a year. … Doug Atkins maybe more often than that.” Hank Lauricella, former Vol All-American, “Was a great friend of dad’s,” Mary said, adding her father “and Johnny Majors are friends.” Leading rusher in the Southeastern Conference in 1968, Richard is among a “circle of seven” former UT Volunteer teammates who remain close to

each other. They help support Richard in his battle with ALS, “Lou Gehrig’s disease,” and frontotemporal dementia. Among those former teammates, Richard said, include “Jim McDonald for one, Charlie Rosenfelter for another, Mike Marchant, Bill Young.” “I know Bill Young and Charlie Rosenfelter, they take Richard to church every Sunday. That means

so much to Richard,” said Larry Brown, a professor of recreation and sport management at The University of Tennessee who, as a lifelong friend of the All-SEC fullback, also was among Richard’s “circle of seven.” Brown said Pickens has “a sculpture of seven people standing in a circle, and that’s his support group.” See UT on Page 7A

Barbara West Portrait Group featured at town hall


The Barbara West Portrait Group has an art show that began Oct. 7 and will continue through Oct. 18 at the Farragut Town Hall Rotunda. The art show features work from members of the group, said Debbie Barnes, group member. The majority of the work exhibited is portraits, she said. The group began in 2001, with Barbara West and Gifford Nicolaides inviting artists into West’s home in Knoxville, she said.

Nicolaides, known as Mr. Nic to those in the group, would teach, talk and draw, she said. The group would draw portraits of models, she said, and the group still does. After West’s passing, the group started meeting at libraries, Debbie Barnes said. Now the group meets Wednesdays at Holy Cross Anglican Church off Herron Road, she said. The group meets at Ball Camp Baptist Church on Saturdays. Both meeting times last from 2 p.m. to 4 p.m. “Unless we have a big problem with one of our churches or it’s a

Kids grow quarterly! Now that the kids are back in school it’s a great time to streamline their rooms. Children are much more likely to keep them neat if they don't have constipated drawers and close t s . Parents have to be the laxative here, because kids can't do it alone, it’s too Pam o v e r - Young whelming Make it to them. You may or Fun! may not have heard my warning: KIDS GROW QUARTERLY. It needs to be a bumper sticker to remind parents that the main reason their kids’ rooms are a mess is because they haven’t been culling quarterly. (I like to think that God made seasons as a sign for parents to go through their children’s clothes every three months.) As we embark on a new calendar quarter that should mean as much to parents of growing children as it does to Boeing Inc. I received an email from a very shocked mom telling me about

being at her wit’s end with an eight-year-old son. She said she and her husband had HAD it and they made a drastic move! They gutted his room (including the closet and dresser drawers) of everything but the clothes that were currently in the laundry (in other words the clothes the child was actually wearing on a regular basis), every toy except for a collection of small Army men the child played with regularly and every book except for one his father was currently reading to him each evening before bed. They left just a bed, a table with a lamp on it, an empty bookshelf and a dresser with the clean laundry in it. (It sounded like the description of a prison room to me.) They took the twenty garbage bags of belongings to the attic. They expected this event would be a punishment, but to their surprise, the child saw it as relief! Here’s the deal; let’s say you have a five-year-old and here it is October 17 the gateway to fall. The adorable, sleeveless white dress with the pink piping trim and embroidery done by hand, still fits her as do her fashionable bathing suit that Grandma bought her when she was in Cancun. The shorts, tank tops and sandals in every color and the silky summer nighties are

now out of season. They probably would still fit the child well into winter although they’d start to hurt and the child would tend to be cold running around in the snow in shorts and a tank top. BUT it’s fall now and ALL the summer clothing is out of season and by next summer when it’s back in, your five-year-old will be six and into a bigger size. So buck up and have the courage to face that cute baby porpoise on the bathing suit and say, “Goodbye, it’s been fun, but it’s time for you to move on.” Relief is just a trip to Goodwill away. Bag up every shirt, sock, shoe, coat, pair of jeans, underpants, pajamas, slippers, bathrobe, swim suit (see even this sentence is getting cluttered) that don’t fit, from your kids’ drawers. Also take everything that is out of season and head out to Goodwill. Goodwill will thank you and so will your kids.

I think it’s our goal to continually be learning and developing.” Barnes loves people within artwork, she said. “I love to look at people,” she said. “There’s nobody that I look at that isn’t beautiful to me. ... When I sit and draw someone, it’s like reading a book about them. And it’s really interesting and fas-

cinating, and I can’t wait to uncover the next page.” Her daughter, Carrie-Ellen Barnes, also is in the group, and she books the models. She talked about what she finds enjoyable about portraits. “No two people ever look exactly alike,” Carrie-Ellen Barnes said. “And at first when you first start doing it, it’s frustrating, and it’s overwhelming. And then after awhile, you start getting in the rhythm and flow of it.”

From page 6A

Barnes said the group aims for two to three art shows per year. “I’m just fortunate to be with these people and watch them draw,” she said. “I draw too, but I tell you I’m just blessed to be with them.” The group largely does portraits, she said. “Largely, that’s about all we do,” she said. “And people that come to

Is it a monster or parasite?

Tami Luttrell, first-grade teacher at Farragut Primary, speaks with students.

FPS teachers set Common Core


Farragut area teachers are faced with transitioning into Tennessee Department of Education’s Common Core state standards in their classroom this year, so they said they are making their goals in line with those standards. Millicent Smith, executive director of curriculum, instruction and professional development for Knox County Schools, explained that these Common Core standards are a set of expectations for what students should know and be able to do when they graduate to be prepared for college and a career. “We’ve been transitioning to the Common Core since 2011,” Smith said. As part of that transitioning, the school system included math as its focus in grades three through eight. “This year, we are fully implementing the standards for math and English/language arts in K12,” she said. “We take these standards and build a curriculum that guides what the teachers do on a daily basis. We develop our local curriculum based on those standards.” For example, Tami Luttrell, a

first-grade teacher at Farragut Primary, noted her goal is to simply meet the needs of her students and “grow them as much as I can. “Of course, we are into the second year of the Common Core, and we’re really focusing on math this year. We are really having a good year,” Luttrell said. Luttrell said she has seen improvement in the students’ thinking with the Common Core standards. For example, she said her students are showing they are more focused and are better equipped to talk through their thinking. Erin Tharp, a fourth-grade teacher at Farragut Intermediate School, said her biggest academic goal for the school year is to help her students as her class transitions into Common Core. “The reading curriculum is making a huge jump in rigor, with a heavy emphasis on research and nonfiction text,” Tharp said. “My goal is to find a way to help prepare each of my individual students for their future,” said Amy Henderson, a third-grade teacher at A.L. Lotts Elementary School. “The Common Core state standards really allow us to help students develop critical thinking skills, even at the third-grade level, that will be used all throughout their lives.

Q: I was watching “Monsters Inside Me,” and there was a woman who had parasites in her stomach called nematodes. The show mentioned that dogs, cats, raccoons, and other animals get this same parasite. I didn’t know that things like that could be con- Stephanie t a g i o u s Myers between peoAsk ple and anithe Vet mals. Should I be worried about myself and my pets? R.K., Farragut

A: Nematodes, or roundworms, can affect people and animals. Animals can become infected in utero, when nursing, eating other animals/prey (hunting behavior), or consuming the parasite eggs directly from infected stool and/or soil. People can also become infected with roundworms, most commonly via fecal-oral transmission. Children are infected more often than adults, as they are usually not old enough to understand routine hygiene and handwashing. According to the CDC, transmission occurs most commonly when children place their hands in their mouth after playing in contaminated soil or sandbox, and thus, ingest the eggs directly. Diseases that can spread from

animals to people are known as zoonoses. Another common intestinal worm that is known to be zoonotic is hookworms. Because hookworms and roundworms are zoonotic, most monthly heartworm preventions for dogs and cats provide a monthly dewormer for these parasites. This is not only for the protection of the health of the pet, but for the pet owners as well. Other common zoonotic diseases include ringworm, Sarcoptic mange (scabies), Toxoplasmosis, and of course, rabies. If you have concerns regarding parasites and your pet, please talk with your veterinarian. Send your veterinary questions to

First Baptist Church group together in front of one of the churches they served during a recent mission trip.

FBC youth make new churches their mission


Two groups of First Baptist Concord youth earlier this summer made it their mission to help establish two new churches. A group of 65 high school students traveled to Allentown, Pa., while 93 middle school students traveled to Hoboken, N.J., in late May and early June. The church has been taking these trips since 1996. Wes Evans, First Baptist Concord High School pastor, said the experience was wonderful for the church and students. “We go [on a mission trip] every year to our church partners around the country,” Evans said. He noted the experience gives the youth a taste of what mission service is. “I am very blessed to be a part of a church that is very missionsoriented and that has allowed me

to be a part of many trips in my high school and even middle school years,” said William “Dalton” Hurst, one of the participants and a Farragut High School student. “One thing I've learned on these trips is that nothing is the same, so I came into this trip with a open mind and heart, waiting to see how the Lord would use me and see what He had for me, not what I had for me.” Hurst, the 16-year-old son of Chuck and Nannette Hurst of Farragut, said he also learned there are people in need of someone who loves them. The high school students worked with Lehigh Valley, a new church in Allentown and with Joseph Velarde, its pastor, said Vickie Tranum, administrative assistant to Evans. “They have a large unchurched population there, and this is a new plant [church] that is reach-

ing out to the community,” Tranum said. Students finished community service projects and completed service projects for Riverbend Community Church. Meanwhile, middle school students served Hoboken Grace Church, said Beth Glenn, administrative assistant for the middle school students. “It was a great project,” Glenn said. She said half of the students in the group walked two miles into Hoboken to set up a church service, where the church’s members met in the gymnasium of an old school. An hour later, the other half set up services at another location. The students also took part in a project that included helping the park service clean up the waterfront. She noted this project took place just after Hurricane Sandy.

Anna Schaad, 21, of Farragut made a life-changing discovery when she recently set out on an adventure across country. “She grew up while she was gone,” her mother, Lisa Schaad, said. “She’s still the same sweet person, but she’s matured.” Anna, the daughter of Lisa and Kirk Schaad of Farragut, said the trip taught her to be brave, selfreliant and appreciate home and family. “I learned to live for the moment, and I learned and practiced trusting God throughout my adventure,” Anna said. Anna said last April she decided to travel to California. She took the 19-day, 6,000-mile solo trip in a two-door sports car filled with bins of snack food, emergency kits and plenty of electronics.

… they’re all juniors, and they have this nice rapport,” Warren said. “The story’s based around these sisters and this mom who’s now having to raise her daughters alone because her husband has died. And they lost all their money.” “Even the girl who plays the mom,” Becky Hunn, “is motherly toward the others anyway,” Warren added.

“I had made some changes in my life,” she said. “I had changed my major, I was happy and I had a lot of motivation but I didn’t know were to put it all. “So, I just decided to take a road trip by myself,” Anna said. She did not tell her parents about her plans until June 1. “Their reactions were really good,” Anna said. “We were completely supportive – outwardly,” her mother said. Lisa explained Anna is the Schaads’ only child, and they were concerned about her safety. Anna blogged about her experience so people could follow her adventure, and she filmed a majority of the trip. “Something people didn’t quite understand is why I wanted to do it by myself. It was my story, and I would learn things on my own rather than if there was someone there to help me,” she said.

Her mother noted neighbors followed Anna’s trip through her daughter’s blog and said Anna’s trip had inspired them. “If she’s this fearless, it makes me fearless,” one neighbor told Lisa. “That’s what I wanted to do with this trip is inspire people,” Anna said. While most of the trip was uneventful, she did have a minor car accident in Los Angeles, which led to a breakdown into tears. “I had hit a parked rental car, got a parking ticket and yelled at by a mean man,” she said. Anna said she is planning another trip, this time to New England. “I think this is going to be a lifelong process for her,” Lisa said. “She’s got a taste for the open road, loved it and probably will always want to travel.”

Play runs two days, both in HVA Auditorium: beginning at 7 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 12, and 3 p.m., Sunday, Oct. 13. Cost is $7 adults and $5 children. Sierra Palmer is playing the oldest sister, Eleanor. “She always takes care of someone, and I feel like that kind of relates to me. I’m always the person that’s there for everybody,” Palmer said. With the other sister characters, and Hunn as the mother, “Having that close friendship with them helps relate it to the

[play’s] family life,” Palmer said. Kayla Leko plays the middle sister, Maury Dashwood. “She’s a very free-spirited character,” Leko said of a character “very different” from herself. “She’s a little controlling. She’s very emotional in the aspect that she feels love at first sight. … I’m more of a calm kind of person.” By playing someone different, “You can really get into character more. It’s more of a challenge,” Leko said. “… You really have to become them, and you really have


Mornings are beginning to promise a nip in the air, and Farragut Primary School is getting ready to celebrate the upcoming season with its annual fall festival, scheduled for Saturday, Oct. 12. The festival is the PTA's biggest fundraiser for the year, said Arlene Driver, ParentTeacher Association president. “It's going to be a great success,” Driver said. “We have several thousand attend each year and expect the same.” The event will feature face painters, games, crafts and new prizes, the PTA president said. Also, this year, the festival will include karate board-breaking, a Rescue Hero's inflatable just for toddlers ages 3 and under and Tiger bounce house for children ages 5 and under, bigger inflatables for older children and snow cones. “Kiddos get so excited when they get here and see all the activities, booths, face painting, train rides, etc.,” Farragut Primary School principal Gina Byrd said. “The best part is listening to our second-graders in a music program,” Byrd added. “This year we are extending the hours, so all the kids will have time to do all the fun things the PTA has to offer.” The principal said the school

would be able to buy computers, update technology and supply its classrooms with instructional material with the proceeds from the event. This is the 21st year Farragut Primary has had a fall festival, Driver said. “We would love to raise over $30,000,” she said. “We use all the money raised by FPS PTA to fund programs for the children, such as Science Night, Knoxville Youth Symphony Orchestra, author visits, ZooMobile, school grounds improvement, Smart Boards, playground equipment and grounds maintenance, first aid clinic, library, books and so much more. “This year's goal is to help pay for a $100,000 improvement for the safety awning in the front of the school to protect our children and teachers from inclement weather,” she said. The PTA starts preparing for the festival in May, before school lets out, by forming its committees, Driver said. The group has 18 committee chairs: Fall fest, crafts, games, lunch, bake sale, volunteers, decorations, silent auction, pre-sale and sponsorships. Those chairmen, in turn, have committees as well, she said. “Altogether it takes about 25 volunteers to plan and several hundred to work on festival day,” she said. Driver added the volunteers include service and athletic groups.

We went to Farragut together,” Leko added. “Sierra and I have become, like, sisters almost, throughout the play. Same for Miranda [Hudson, the youngest sister].” Micha Haas, sophomore, plays Edward Farris, Eleanor’s love interest. “He’s a lot like me in some

ways,” Haas said. “I’m a really awkward person.” However, “I think Edward’s character is helping me kind of figure myself out a little bit, just seeing how Edward handles things compared to how I handle things,” Haas added. Logan Monroe, senior, plays Col. Brandon. “Mr. Warren and the whole theater department have changed my whole life,” Monroe said. “Without it, I don’t think that I would be the person that I am today.”

Farragut Church of Christ members heading to Ghana


A group of 19 people from Farragut Church of Christ will go to Ghana, West Africa for a medical mission from Oct. 11 through Oct. 20. “We’ll be doing a four-day medical mission, and we will go to a different rural village [each day] that has no medical care and is not very close to the Village of Hope,” said David Gentry, deacon of foreign missions at Farragut Church of Christ. “And we’ll do a clinic each day and see anybody who needs medical care ... at four different villages, and so they’ll be seen, diagnosed and free medicine supplied to them that same day.” Gentry said the church goes to Ghana, West Africa twice a year. They work with Village of Hope. The group going on the October trip includes “three doctors, a nurse practitioner and another nurse, a pharmacist and then some other people from our congregation, some of whom are going with us for the first time and others who have been before,” he said. The October trip will mark Gentry’s eighth Ghana trip. “My first trip, I was helping the eye doctor with some of the exam-

students in pre-kindergarten through the 12th grade for art works. Caleb, whose father, Kyung Joon, made the film about the birth of his brother, Jayden, and titled the film, “My Little Brother Jayden.” “I was glad when he said he would make a film about his brother because it was from his love to his brother,” Caleb’s mother said. “Caleb did a wonderful job making a film about his brother's

inations, and so I was there working with him, and a mother led a little boy who I would estimate was maybe 5 or 6, could have been as old as 7, in by the hand,” he said. “... After the examination, they discovered that he was extremely, extremely near-sighted, and so we asked the mother to go across the room -- and so she explained to him that she was going to go across the room -- and then we slipped the glasses on and asked him to pick out his mother. And this big smile came across his face, and he ran to her. And I knew from that point on that I pretty well have to go and help and work on this thing.” Gentry talked about the importance of mission work. “I think obviously from a humanitarian standpoint, any health care for people who need it, no matter where, I think is very, very important, but the other opportunity and the primary reason that we do it is that we are able to offer, let the people see the love that Jesus Christ has for all the people in the world,” he said. “They are able to see that through the help that they are receiving in a medical way. So it’s both physically and spiritually significant.”

arrival in to the world,” Byrd said. “I was so excited to hear how he researched, planned, then executed his plan for the video. “He truly deserved the national award,” Byrd added. She noted this was the first time a Knox County student won a national award for his Reflections project. “The award supports the arts, and the National PTA Reflections program supports student success and serves as a valuable tool for building strong partnerships in school communities,” she said.

Estate Treasures celebrates October marks 1st anniversary


Estate Treasures, located at 11681 Parkside Drive, is celebrating its first anniversary in October. “We have estate jewelry, which is previously loved jewelry and antique,” said Jessica Maples, marketing director of Estate Treasures. “Some of it is actually old antique jewelry from Victorian times, and we have unique and interesting antique collectibles, rugs and paintings. And then we also have services: insurance appraisals, five-dollar watch batteries and jewelry repair and service.” Everything in the store is previously owned for the most part, she said. “We’ve got a lot of jewelry,” Maples said. “We’ve got engagement and wedding sets. We’ve got cameos and pearls. We’ve got a nice line of sterling silver jewelry. We’ve got a nice, actually pretty big line of sterling silver American Indian turquoise pieces, and then we actually have a nice arrangement of sterling silver service ware like flatware and serving pieces that are in sterling-like tea sets and trays.” Many of the business’ antiques are advertising samples and salesman’s samples, she said. “For instance, we have a big collection of advertising sample

whiskey jugs, whiskey and vinegar jugs, from say, the mid- to late 1800s,” she said. “You would have got this little ceramic container ... like a mini whiskey jug, but it would have their whiskey in it and their brewery’s name and their advertising information, and they would give it away as samples.” But after using the advertising samples when they were first given out, people would throw them away, Maples said. “So the survival rate for the mini whiskey jugs isn’t very high, so the fact that these have sur-

vived the last 100-plus years makes them kind of special,” she added. “Kind of the same thing with the salesman’s samples, you have to think back to the time when people went door-to-door to sell goods, whether that be a wood stove or furniture or dress making. You had to think about, people couldn’t carry a full-size wood stove to sell it to you or a full-size coffee table everywhere they went, so they’d have miniature-scale versions of their product that they’d carry door to door.” Usually salesman’s samples

Target opening day for Parkside location is today, Oct. 10


The tentative date for the opening of a new Designer Shoe Warehouse locally is today, Thursday, Oct. 10. The location is at 11020 Parkside Drive, said Christina Cheng, director of investor relations at DSW Inc. “Our stores are typically 20,000

to 22,000 square feet and attract customers who love to find the best values everyday,” Cheng said. “Our stores have all our stock categorized by end use [women’s dress, casual, sandals, etc.], which allows customers to find their sizes quickly and efficiently. “Plus we have an online channel,, that can provide more colors and sizes that you may not find at the store level. We

are one of the few fast-growing big box retailers in the U.S., with 30 stores to open this year,” she added. Cheng said there are stores in 42 states. The new location will make the sixth store in Tennessee. “We evaluate locations based on certain demographic criteria, mix of co-tenants, traffic patterns and real estate availability,” she

said. “We have been serving customers in Tennessee since 1994 and have grown our business since then.” The business offers “footwear and accessories, both by national brands, designer brands and our own labels,” she said. Cheng talked about what makes the business stand out. “Breathtaking assortment, simple convenience and everyday value, plus customers will find that our stores are run by shoe lovers, like our customers,” she said. The business opened its first store in 1991, Cheng said. “The first store was very much a very simple, no-frills warehouse of shoes,” she said. “And we started off as a closeout retailer, which meant we take excess quantities that brands make available at the end of the season and we sell them at attractive prices, lower than what the manufacturers typically sell them for.” But the business has changed, she said. “The closeout part of the business has gotten much, much smaller, and instead we source more in-season product right now,” she said. “We strive to source it in a way so that we can See DESIGNER on page 2B

Paul Laudeman, of KickStand, said in an e-mail that the group hopes “to get more bikes, and we also really need hand tools for bike repair like wrenches, etc.” Laudeman described KickStand. “KickStand is a non-profit group of all volunteers, who collect donated bikes and make those bikes available through our shop at Tribe One [moving soon to 2634 E. Magnolia Ave.],” he

said. “We teach people who come in how to fix their bikes and keep them running safely. “We also distribute helmets, supplied to us by The Epilepsy Foundation. Our shop is open to everyone who needs a bike but cannot afford one and those who need to repair their own bike or need parts,” he added. “... KickStand also donates bikes, which volunteers have repaired, to other charities who distribute them to people who need basic transportation.” KickStand donates bicycles to people of all ages, he said.

“Bikes are also available for loan and to purchase for reasonable prices,” he said. “This helps us buy supplies such as tire patches, the item we use the most, tubes, cables, etc.” Junk Bee Gone has donated more than 100 bicycles since spring, Such said. “Our goal is to donate as many items as we can,” Such said. “We recycle as much as possible and then properly dispose of the rest of the items. ... We, as Junk Bee Gone, we donate to a number of different charities and different folks with the items that we take.”

Admirals, Hawks battle to the wire ■

KEN LAY Correspondent

The first chapter in Knox County’s newest football rivalry went to Farragut High School Friday night, as a fast start propelled the Admirals to a 35-33 victory over Hardin Valley Academy before a Admirals 35 packed Hawks 33 house at FHS’s Bill Clabo Field. Early on, it looked as though the Ads would cruise, especially when sophomore running back Tanner Thomas’ 20-yard touch-

down scamper gave FHS a 28-7 lead early in the second quarter. But there would be no mop-up duty in this contest, which was the first-ever meeting between the two neighboring schools. Farragut, which was coming off an open date, scored on its first four possessions. It all started in the first quarter when senior quarterback Bryan Phillips threw three touchdown passes. Phillips threw a pair of touchdown passes to senior tight end Billy Williams and tossed another to Aaron Suadi.

LENOIR CITY—-A simple glance at the score would reveal that Hardin Valley Academy’s win in the District 4-AAA volleyball tournament quarterfinals at Lenoir City High School was easy Tuesday night. But simple glances can be deceiving. The Lady Hawks Lady Hawks 3 did nab a 25-17, 2519, 25-10 victory William Blount 0 over William Blount but it didn’t come as easily as the final score would have indicated.

HVA (34-15) had to rally from behind in all three sets. The Lady Hawks fell behind 10-4 in the first game and rallied. The Lady Governors were in command early until the Lady Hawks came storming back to even the set at 13-13. From there, HVA two of the next three points to open a 16-14 advantage.

Farragut High School’s girls soccer team celebrated senior night with a 3-0 Lady Admirals 3 District 4West 0 AAA victory over West at the Farragut Soccer Stadium Thursday, Oct. 3. The Lady Admirals (10-2-3

overall, 5-0-2 in the district) darted to a fast start and scored all three of their goals in the first half. “In the first half, I thought we passed the ball pretty well,” Lady Ads head coach Dennis Lindsay said. “Our passing was really good. “But I’ve seen that we have a lot of work to do and since we only have one game [this week], I’ll have a chance to fine tune a

few things.” That final match of the regular season will be tonight (Oct. 10) at Morristown West. Kickoff is slated for 6 p.m. and could be a preview of a Sectional match-up.

Amari Rodgers, Knoxville Catholic freshman running back, gets loose on one of his many long runs — including five touchdowns — against Kingston in a 51-7 rout at KCHS Friday, Oct. 4.


The only drama in Knoxville Catholic’s 51-7 home blowout against winless Kingston last Friday were two early first quarter “extra curricular” incidents, which resulted in one Irishman and two Yellowjackets being ejected. W h i l e Fighting Irish 51 freshman Kingston 7 Amari Rodgers scored five touchdowns, including a 36-yard pass reception and 27-yard run, to lead the unbeaten Irish (6-0) offensively, Kingston (0-6) didn’t score on Catholic’s first-string defense in this Oct. 4 laugher. “Amari, obviously, played outstanding. I’ve got to remember sometimes that he’s 14 years old,” KCHS head coach Steve Matthews said. “If he just keeps working hard and hits it hard in the weight room, I think sky’s the limit for him.” Zac Jancek, KCHS junior quarterback, fired a 20-yard TD pass to senior receiver Will Martinez. Irish freshman Jermaine Buchannon added a 26-yard touchdown run in the fourth quarter. “It was definitely good to get the offense started [quick] and going,” Martinez said. “Earlier in the [previous] games we didn’t look too great. But this game, I feel like it sparked us a little bit.” Martinez said the late-game drive, and resulting Wyatt Price field goal, to beat Hardin Valley Academy the week before gave the Irish offense “a huge confidence boost. It sparked our offense and led to this.”

Patrick McFall, Irish senior offense and defensive tackle, said the late HVA drive “was a real big encouragement,” adding that with Matthews’ no-huddle spread offense, “I think we’re now just starting to click with it and it’s just really starting to sink in. We’re starting to know what everybody’s doing.” Offensively, “The tempo’s getting better, the offensive line’s starting to understand some of the zone concepts a little bit better. … Up front I think we’re getting better. I think that’s the key to it,” Matthews said. “If we can play well on the line of scrimmage I think we’ve got a chance to do some things offensively.” “I think we’re definitely making progress.” Individually, “I though the quarterback played really well,” Matthews said of Jancek. In addition to Price’s six extra points, sophomore Jake Poczobut added one. Josh Silvey, Irish freshman who starts at nose guard, said the jump to high school football “is a big adjustment.” However, “It’s actually pretty fun and not as hard as I thought it would be,” he added. “… But I’ve got to work my hardest to get better.” Silvey also said the Irish upperclassmen and other experienced defenders “are helping me control my anger. Plus, they’re showing me how to do the defense they do. … I used to be at the tackle, but now I’m at the nose [nose guard]. But I’m getting used to it.” McFall said the Irish freshmen and sophomores “are going to be a real force to be reckoned with in a few years.”


Phillips started the scoring when he connected from Williams from 16 yards out. Carter Phillipy’s extra point gave the Ads a 7-0 lead with 10 minutes, 30 seconds remaining in the opening stanza. The Admirals (3-3 overall, 2-1 in District 4-AAA) extended their advantage to 14-0 when Phillips hooked up with Suadi from 34 yards out a little more than midway through the first quarter. “I liked how we started,” Admirals’ head coach Eddie Courtney said. And what wasn’t to like. Farragut’s offense was clicking and its defense stood tall. Hardin Valley (3-3, 1-2), which has dropped three consecutive games after getting off to its first-ever 30 start, got its lone touchdown of the opening half when Joe Underwood rushed for a 2-yard touchdown at the 3:16 mark of the first quarter. That trimmed HVA’s deficit to 14-7. From there, the Ads controlled the rest of the opening half. Things couldn’t have gone much worse for the Hawks than they did in the first half. “We challenged our kids at halftime and we told them that they could come out and get run out of

the stadium or they could be a part of the biggest football comeback in Hardin Valley history,” Hawks’ head coach Wes Jones said. “Our kids wanted that comeback bad and I’m really happy with their effort.” The Hawks began the uphill climb in the third quarter. HVA punted on its first drive of the second half and Farragut took the ball at its own 4-yard line. The Admirals, however, didn’t keep possession long as Phillips threw an interception and Underwood returned it 10 yards for a touchdown. Sam Pendergast’s PAT made the score 28-14 with 9:24 left in the frame. “I have to quit throwing those Pick 6’s after halftime,” Phillips said. “I’m not quite sure what’s going on there. “[Offensive coordinator Rusty] Partin took the blame for that one but I threw it so it’s on me. We’ll take the win but it’s not a satisfying win for us.” The Hawks pulled to within 2821 early in the fourth quarter when Ryan Ferguson scored on a 17-yard run. Phillips would answer with an 18-yard touchdown dash to give the home team a 35-21 lead with 6:51 to play. Then things really got crazy as Hardin Valley quarterback Nathan White, who went 17-for-39 with 310 yards, tossed two touch-

down passes in a little more than three minutes. White connected with Jack DeFur from 35 yards out to make the score 35-27 with 5:04 left in regulation. The Hawks missed the extra point but stopped Farragut on the ensuing series. White threw his second touchdown strike, a 39-yarder to Chris Thomas, with 1:54 left. The twopoint conversion failed. Hardin Valley had a chance to win on its next possession but came up short on downs. “I wish we could’ve have gotten that ‘W,’” DeFur said. “We did play hard but we just dug ourselves too big of a hole.” Phillips said that the rivalry will be big for some time. “I saw this coming because these schools are so close and we all know each other,” Phillips said. “I played in middle school with Jack [DeFur] and this will be a big rivalry as long as they’re in our district.” That’s just what principals Mike Reynolds (FHS) and Sallee Reynolds (HVA) are hoping for. The two schools began the 2 Blues 4 Shoes Campaign in cooperation with Soles for Souls. The campaign kicked off with the FHS Dance Team performing a routine in bare feet. (For more, see Page 1A.)

Spartans rip Donelson in Music City ■

KEN LAY Correspondent

NASHVILLE — The winning streak reached three for the Webb School of Knoxville football team Friday night as the Spartans notched a 38-14 victory at Donelson Christian Academy. The Spartans (3-2 overall, 2-0 in Spartans 38 Division II-A) scored 17 points Donelson Christian 14 in the second quarter en route to handing the Wildcats (6-1, 3-1) their first loss of the 2013 season. Webb running backs Todd Kelly Jr. and Matthew Melton each rushed for more than 100 yards. Melton, a senior, had touchdown runs of seven and 43 yards

Lady Ads From page 5B

Cherokee late last week. Farragut, the District 4-AAA regular-season Co champ, scored early against the Lady Rebels. The Lady Admirals took a 1-0 lead when senior Katie Cloud took a pass from Emma Jeter and promptly fired the ball past West goalkeeper Isabel Snyder in the 12th minute. Katie Becker extended the Lady Ads’ advantage to 2-0 with an unassisted marker in the 31st minute and junior K.C. Ward made it 3-0 a minute later. At halftime, Farragut honored its seniors and came out and played a lackluster second half and Lindsay thought that the Senior Night ceremonies took their emotional toll on the Lady

and caught a 41-yard scoring strike from Johnny Chun in the waning seconds of the second quarter. Kelly, a Tennessee Volunteers commitment, also had a 43-yard scoring scamper for Webb, which opened a 24-0 advantage by halftime. Spartans head coach David Meske said he was pleased that his squad earned a tough road victory over the previously unbeaten Wildcats. “This was a big win for us,” Meske said. “Our defense played really well. Our first team defense didn’t give up a point. “They [the Wildcats] are a good team. They were 6-0, so this was a good district win for us.” Donelson Christian did score a pair of touchdowns in the fourth quarter after the game was in hand.

Admirals. “Senior Night always affects our game,” he said. Farragut, which shared the regular-season title with district newcomer Hardin Valley Academy, will be tested in Morristown tonight before it begins defense of its two consecutive district, regional and sectional tournament titles. “Morristown West definitely has a good team and we just have to focus on one game at a time,” Cloud said. “We have to focus on the game directly in front of us.” The Lady Admirals have battled injury, illness and adversity all season and early, FHS had trouble scoring but Becker said the adversity made the Lady Ads a better team. “The team has worked hard. It was definitely a rough start but

Meanwhile, the Spartans took a 7-0 lead in the first quarter on Melton’s first touchdown run, which came from seven yards out. His 43-yard scamper in the second stanza made it 14-0. Webb’s Robby Strachan, who also rushed for a 5-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter, had a 32-yard field goal in the second quarter to give the Spartans a 17-0 lead. Melton closed out the scoring late in the second quarter when he caught Chun’s touchdown pass. “Matthew caught a long touchdown for us with about five seconds left in the second quarter that gave us a 24-0 lead and that was nice,” Meske said. “We ran the ball well. Matthew and Todd Kelly both ran for over 100 yards.” Meske, the Spartans longtime coach,

we all stuck together,” Becker said. “We just have to stay focused and we can get back to state.” Lady Rebels coach Sonny Trotter said he expects the third time to be the charm for the Lady Admirals in Chattanooga. “Our kids played well but they’ve just got a great team,” Trotter said after his team dropped to 10-5 overall and 3-4 in the district. “They’re the best team in the state and it will take a monumental effort to beat them. “There was a lot of good soccer out there tonight. We just couldn’t get anything going but they’re just a heck of a team and I knew how they had been clicking lately.” For her part, Ward is anticipating big things in the postseason

said that his team’s offensive line continues to improve. “We’re working hard on the offensive line and we need to keep improving,” he said. “I haven’t seen the tape yet but when I watch it, I’m sure that I’ll find some things that we need to work on.” Kelly’s and Strachan’s touchdowns came after halftime for Webb, which renews its one-time great rivalry with Battle Ground Academy at home Friday night. “That should be a good game,” Meske said of the upcoming contest against BGA. “That will be a challenge for us. “They’re projected to win their district and we played them a few years back and we had a great rivalry with them."

if the Lady Ads continue their recent play. But she noted the Farragut must maintain its intensity for 80 minutes. “We’ve just got to keep it up and we have to have the same

focus in the second half that we had in the first half tonight,” Ward said. “I think it’s been a hard season but we’ve all stuck together.”

Taylor Bishop of Hardin Valley Academy (10) battles Science Hill defenders for ball control during this Thursday, Oct. 3 contest at HVA.

Defense key in Lady Hawks’ rout ■


Just one win away from an undefeated regular season, Hardin Valley Academy’s No. 5 state-ranked Lady Hawks easily whipped Lady Hawks 7 a Science Hill team Science Hill 0 f r o m Johnson City struggling with a tough schedule and a losing record. Led by two goals from junior Taylor Bishop and one goal and two assists from Gabby Powers, Hardin Valley improved to 12-0-4 with a 7-0 cakewalk Thursday, Oct. 3, at HVA. Both head coaches pointed to defense. “We couldn’t get a shot off,” said Megan Harmon, Lady Hilltoppers head coach, about

the Lady Hawks’ airtight defense. Hardin Valley “is up there with one of the best ones we’ve played” as part of “a really, really tough schedule,” Harmon added. “We defended well again,” HVA head coach Mike McLean said. In recent games, McLean still pointed to his “back line, everyone’s defending well, our keeper’s been playing well [Jordan Beets]” as the team’s strongest feature. That “back line” features senior Katie Filipowicz, sophomore Kelsey Klett, junior Emily Belanger and junior Sierra Palmer. “I think we’re doing well, and we’re getting ready for the playoffs,” said Steph Hamm, senior midfielder. Madison Lovelace, senior midfielder, said, “I think we’ve all played to our strengths very well.

Each player brings a different strength to the team. I think we’ve really done well.” Powers and Klett scored firsthalf goals, with Klett’s perfectly placed free kick from about 30 yards coming in the final two minutes of the half. Bishop scored both her goals on rebounds, alertly controlling shots that deflected off the SHHS goalkeeper. Taylor Shott’s goal came from about 10 yards out. Filipowicz took a nice, long diagonal pass and scored from about 12 yards out making it 6-0 with 4:25 left. Lovelace nailed an open 20yard shot in the final two minutes. Lovelace, Shott, Paige Hewitt and Kaley Corley also had assists. The Lady Hawks enjoyed a 26-7 edge in shots-on-goal.

Rebels run through Bulldogs’ defense ■

TONY MANILLA Correspondent

Bearden’s Bulldogs entered last week’s contest at West High School riding high off of a hard fought victory over Lenoir City and boasting an undefeated District 4AAA record. After a highly energetic pregame warm up session, the players’ confidence seemed as high as it had been West High School 41 all season long. Bulldogs 20 Two-and-a-half hours later, their body language had done a 180, as the Rebels split-veer attack humbled the Dawgs for most of the evening. West’s three-headed monster of quarterback Seth Marshall, speedster Nathan Cottrell and senior running back Justin Hodge ran over, through and around the BHS defense. The offense didn’t fare much better. The Bulldogs marched 60 yards in 10 plays on their opening drive, only to watch a 20yard field goal from John Matthew Lee sail wide left.

“We got down to the 2-yard-line and should have gone for it [on fourth & goal], but we have to do what the coaches want us to do,” said Malachi Horton, showing a bit of frustration after another tough loss. The Dawgs caught a break on West’s next drive when Seth Marshall fumbled an exchange with Hodge inside the BHS 5 yard line. Defensive tackle Drew Coleman pounced quickly and bailed his team out of trouble, at least for the moment. Quarterback Xavier Johnson would follow by throwing two costly interceptions on back-to-back drives in what was rough night for the senior. Rebel defensive standouts Cody Underwood and Tywan Hall were in Johnson’s hip pocket every time he dropped back to pass, forcing the senior to pick his poison of either taking a sack or trying a risky throw. Though Johnson was able to connect with Matthew Marlow on a superb 31-yard scoring throw, the Rebels countered with 28 unanswered points, with Nathan Cottrell providing plenty of fireworks in the process. The junior tailback showed impressive break-

get through to the next day and we’ve made it to tomorrow and if we win our first game tomorrow, then we make it to next week, regardless what happens in the championship.” The third-seeded Lady Hawks advanced to Wednesday’s semifinal round. Hardin Valley faced second-seeded Bearden in the semifinals but results weren’t available at press time. The Lady Bulldogs swept a pair of threeset matches from the Lady Hawks in the regular season. In Game 2 against the Lady

Hawks From page 5B

Lady Hawks’ coach Mike Rosenke that his squad’s tournament quarterfinal match was a microcosm of its season. “We’ve battled adversity all year and we talked about that yesterday in practice,” he said. “We responded well after not playing all that well early and we got better as the evening went on and that was a good sign for us. “We came in just wanting to

Governors, the Lady Hawks again got off to a sluggish start. Hardin Valley opened a 2-1 lead before William Blount, the tournament’s No. 6 seed, scored the next four points to open a 52 advantage. The Lady Hawks, however, responded by scoring the next five points. A key service run by Sarah Wysor, who recently returned to Hardin Valley’s lineup after missing time due to injury, resulted in four points after a side-out gave the Lady Hawks the ball and trimmed the

away speed, scoring on back-to-back carries of 57 and 78 yards, leaving Bulldog defenders scratching their heads. “We came up short but it will come together,” Horton said. “We made some mental mistakes but its going to come.” Unfortunately for Horton and his teammates, the time to come together is waning fast. Six games into their 2013 campaign, the Bulldogs still lack imagination and consistency on offense, often times looking quite predictable. Despite the Rebels’ impressive defensive front, the BHS staff seemed content to hand the ball to Horton straight up the gut, even after being stonewalled multiple times by Underwood and or a host of West defenders. The Dawgs pride themselves on being able to line up and run the ball down the throat of their opponents, but the Rebels punished them for each and every yard they gained, as their ground attack never got going. Offensive tackle Chandler Greer experienced first hand just how tough the Rebels

defense was. “West is a very good team, they’ve always got good athletes and are very well coached, and on defense they are very good all around.” If the Dawgs can’t figure out a way to spread the ball amongst their playmakers, it could very well doom their playoff hopes. Regrouping is never easy after a blowout loss, but senior leaders Horton and Greer are confident their teammates can bounce back when they travel to Hardin Valley Academy for another vital district showdown Friday, Oct. 11. “You’ve just got to tell everyone to just play to the next snap, that’s all you can do,” Greer said. “The best thing you can do coming off a loss is come back and have a great week of practice.” “Monday we will come out strong on the practice field and get ready for another district game,” Horton said. “It’s going to be tough, but I think we will step up to the challenge.”

deficit to 5-3. The Lady Governors never led in the set again but did get to within 16-15 before HVA scored eight of the next 12 points to take a 2-0 lead in the match. Hardin Valley junior setter Amanda Hylton said that Hardin Valley had a case of the jitters early but noted that the team learned from its early trials and tribulations. “Having all those injuries this year was tough but we stuck together and played as a team,” Hylton said. “We learned that if

we stick together then we could come back. Tonight, we came back. “We had some nerves early but we’ve had to learn to adjust to things all year. I knew we could come back but I know that we have to leave it all on the floor.’ In the third ser, the Lady Hawks fell behind 3-2 before storming back to win easily. Hylton finished with 26 assists and four kills. Maura Emertt had five kills an ace. Cantrell added five kills.

Hawks quarterback Nathan White led Hardin Valley back from a 28-7 deficit against new rival Farragut during the teams' first matchup Friday, Oct. 4, at Farragut. The Admirals preserved the 35-33 win.

KEN LAY Correspondent

The chase for farragutpress How the West was Won Presented by 3 Minute Magic Car Wash trophy continued as the four of the five area teams began the second half of the 2013 football season. Knoxville Catholic High School’s quest for perfection remained intact as the Irish notched a District 4-AA 51-7 victory over winless Kingston. Farragut, meanwhile, snapped a two-game losing streak with a 35-33 District 4-AAA win over Hardin Valley Academy at Bill Clabo Field in the first-ever meeting between the two neighboring schools. Bearden suffered its first district loss Friday night when it dropped a 41-20 decision to West High at Bill Wilson Field. Two-time defending Class 3A state champion Christian Academy of Knoxville (2-4) had an open date. The Warriors will return to action Friday night at home against Belfry (Kentucky). The Irish improved to 6-0 overall and 2-0 in District 4-AA with a 51-7 rout of the winless Kingston Yellowjackets. Catholic put this one away early, scoring 30 points in the first quarter. Irish freshman running back Amari Rodgers, son of former Tennessee quarterback Tee Martin, scored five touchdowns at Blaine Stadium Friday night. He had three 6-

yard scoring runs and also rushed for a 26-yard score. Rodgers, who missed action early this season due to a broken collarbone, also had a 36-yard touchdown reception. Catholic’s defense continued to be stellar as the Irish had a first-quarter safety. Catholic travels to Anderson County Friday to face the Mavericks. ACHS (6-1) beat Central 60- 37 Friday night. Meanwhile, at Bill Clabo Field, Farragut broke a two-game losing streak with a District 4-AAA victory over Har-din Valley Academy in the first-ever meeting between the Hawks and the Admirals. Farragut (3-3, 2-1) got off to a fast start. The Ads scored four touchdowns on their first four possessions. Quarterback Bryan Phillips threw three touchdown passes in the first quarter. Two were to senior tight end Billy Williams and Aaron Suadi caught a 34-yard TD. Sophomore Tanner Thomas had a 20-yard scoring scamper. HVA (3-3, 1-2), which has dropped three consecutive games, got its lone first-half touchdown when Joe Underwood had a 2yard plunge. Farragut, which had a 28-7 lead at the half, nearly let things get away. Underwood scored a touchdown on a 10yard interception return and Ryan Ferguson’s 17-yard scoring scamper made it 28-21 early in the fourth quarter. Phillips’ 18-yard touchdown run mid-

SCOTT TATE presents

way through the fourth quarter gave Farragut a 35-21 lead before The Hawks made things interesting with two scores in the final 5 minutes, 3 seconds. Nathan White threw a touchdown pass to Jack DeFur, to pull the Hawks to within 35-27. White connected with Chris Thomas from 39 yards out to make it 35-33. A potential game-tying two-point conversion failed. Farragut hosts Heritage this week. The Mountaineers (1-5, 0-3) dropped a 42-0 decision to Maryville last week. Hardin Valley entertains Bearden Friday. The Bulldogs (2-4, 2-1) will look to rebound from a 41-20 road loss to West High at Bill Wilson Field. The Bulldogs suffered their first district loss of the season to the Rebels Friday night. West (5-1, 2-1) did most of its damage on the ground. Quarterback Seth Marshall combined with running backs Nathan Cottrell and Justin Hodge to rush for 346 yards and four TDs on just 24 carries. The Bulldogs had three turnovers including two interceptions and a fake punt which went awry. Bearden had 171 yards of total offense before halftime but the three miscues cost the Bulldogs. Bearden quarterback Xavier Johnson had touchdown passes to Emid Aqqad and Matthew Marlow and also rushed for a 2-yard score.

Breast cancer Free career seminar awareness Coldwell Banker Wallace & Wallace, REALTORS® hosts at five offices

This time of year East Tennessee shares it's "orange" with pink. Pink jerseys, pink t-shirts and pink ribbons. This poem was written for me on my first birthday after chemo by my daughter who was 13 at the time. It's what cancer and it's journey looks like through a child's eyes.

Only a Year. Only a year has gone by That everything went sky high. As I open my eyes and look back, Memories start to attack. In the spring of '09, everything was cool, calm, fine. Busy schedules were often occupying, But we were always trying, trying, trying. A certain memory comes back to me...... I walked into a room and went to see, What the news was. A beautiful person sitting on the bed, What I want to ask, I dread. But I see it in her eyes, As she tries to hold back and not cry. I already know the answer As I see the weight of the chains holding her down. I don't know what else to do but stand there, on the ground. I look in her eyes again, swim in the depths of ivory blue, And I found just what I needed, the right clue. She tells me everything will be okay, and I know she's right. Over time, I've grown, And have become tougher on my own. I always knew she was strong, stronger then I knew, Because she overcame, and the chains she wore, she threw. I thank her because of what she gave me, She gave strength, hope, and what i'm trying hard to be. Only a year has gone by, and I thank you.
