New signage welcomes visitors to Farragut ■

TAMMY CHEEK tcheek@farragutpress.com

Motorists entering the town of Farragut at Watt Road will see a larger entrance sign. Public Works staff members from the town of Farragut recently installed the new entrance sign at the Farragut border to be more prominent, said Chelsey Riemann, public relations coordinator for the Town. “The more prominent entrance signs were identified as a priority project of the Board of Mayor and Aldermen during the Farragut Strategic Plan process,” Riemann said. “As easements are acquired in the future, additional entrance signs will be installed at the town of Farragut borders,” she

added. “These signs will replace the current smaller signs, providing clear identification of the entrances to the Town.” However, these signs are different from flagstone structures, featuring an anchor and lights, the Town’s planners earlier proposed. “Apparently [Tennessee Department of Transportation] does not allow stacked stone signs in the right of way,” said Sue Stuhl, Parks and Leisure Services director. “It had to be wood break-away signs. “It couldn’t be so permanent, so the design had to change,” Stuhl added. Town administrator David Smoak said the Town concluded it would just utilize the 6-by-6inch post on this sign, as well as future signs, when they are able

to be installed, instead of the stacked stone base with the light. “In the future, there will be a possibility that any of the entrance signs may have to be moved due to development on the properties, and these signs can easily be removed with little cost associated in moving them to another location,” Smoak said. Riemann said the signs were part of the strategic plan process going on in 2011, although Board members started talking about its strategic plan as early as 2010, according to news reports. Talk of putting up welcome signs at all Farragut entrances came up during a special visioning session in June 2010, when Board members discussed what See SIGNS on Page 2A

Town accepting applications for second ‘Introduction to Farragut’

Common Core topic for FIS camp

STAFF REPORTS

Town of Farragut invites community members interested in learning more about Farragut to apply for its second “Introduction to Farragut” program set to begin in January 2014. “‘Introduction to Farragut’ is a unique way to connect participants with the Town, providing information on its history, government structure and operations, public safety, education and volunteer opportunities,” Chelsey Riemann, public relations coordinator for the Town, said. Open to any interested person — Farragut residency not required — the program will begin with a reception and kickoff at the Farragut Town Hall from 6 to 7:30 p.m., Wednesday, Jan. 15, Riemann added. Classes will be held from 6 to 8:30 p.m. on the following Tuesdays: Jan. 28, Feb. 11, Feb. 25, March 11 and March 25, all at Town Hall. Graduation is scheduled for Tuesday, April 8. Riemann said, “New this year, participants will take part in the Food for Kids program.” Food for Kids is a collaborative effort between Second Harvest and an ever-increasing number of public schools within the Food Bank’s 18-county service area. The program is designed to provide healthy, easily prepared food to some of the most vulnerable children in our community — children who may be missing meals on a regular See INTRO on Page 2A

Among all the fellowship, music, holiday sentimentality and colorful lights enjoyed by hundreds at Third Annual Light the Park presented by TDS, a local father-son musical act made their first-ever public appearance. Thomas Clay, a freshman at Hardin Valley

Academy, played saxophone accompanying his father, local jazz vocalist and pianist Brian Clay, as the rain held off in Campbell Station Park Monday evening, Dec. 2. The pair performed “Mary Did You Know,” as Brian’s face occasionally beamed with a big smile observing his son’s performance. See LIGHTS on Page 3A

Owen Cianciolo, a fifth grader at Farragut Intermediate School, summed up new statewide Common Core public school standards well enough to be repeated during a special camp. “To his parents at the table he said, ‘We used to just pick an answer and mark it and go on, but now what we do is we read something, we choose an answer, we think about it and tell why that answer is right, and we back it up with text evidence,’” said Candace Evans, FIS instructional coach. Evans joined other FIS teachers and administrators, including principal Kay Wellons, for FIS Common Core Camp, a parent-student learning session in the school’s music room and library Thursday evening, Oct. 24. Roughly 15 different families of FIS children attended this 90minute session. “We’re showing an overview of what tasks students will be asked to perform on the state tests coming up next year [February 2015],” Evans told parents and students about the Partnership for the Assessment of Readiness For College and Careers test. “What boys and girls are asked to do is to take text, analyze it, choose pieces of importance and write about it,” Evans added. Students took sample Common Core examinations in See CAMP on Page 3A

Those interested can view the complete program schedule and access the online application at www.townoffarragut.org/introduction. Completed applications can be e-mailed to valerie.millsapps@townoffarragut.org; printed and mailed to the Town Hall or submitted in person at the Town Hall. The application deadline is 3 p.m., Friday, Dec. 13. Up to 20 participants will be selected; accepted applicants The Knoxville Division of the Federal Bureau of Investigation and Chief David Rausch of the Knoxville Police Department are seeking the public’s assistance in identifying the man, pictured above, who robbed a BB&T branch Monday, Dec. 2, in Knoxville, just outside of Farragut. At about 10:53 a.m., a man entered the BB&T bank at 11113 Parkside Drive in Turkey Creek in Knoxville brandishing a silver handgun and demanding money from the bank employees. The subject has been described as follows: White male, 6-foot to 6foot-2 tall, late 20s to early 30, 180-200 pounds, medium build, brown hair with a beard, last seen wearing a brown Carhartt cap, navy blue jacket, dark pants

and glasses. Suspect is armed with a silver handgun. After obtaining money from the bank, the man fled on foot eastbound past Jimmy Johns restaurant. Anyone with information is asked to call the Knoxville FBI at 865-544-0751 or the KPD at 865215-7212. A reward is being offered for information that leads to the arrest of this individual. This matter is being investigated jointly by the FBI Safe Streets Task Force, composed of the FBI, KPD, Knox County Sheriff’s Office and KPD Major Crimes Unit. For more information on the FBI’s Knoxville Division, visit www.fbi.gov/knoxville/

will be notified within seven to 10 days of the deadline. Program requirements include attending the Jan. 15 reception and at least four of the five classes from January to March as well as attending one Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting (second and fourth Thursdays of each month) and one Municipal Planning Commission meeting (third Thursday of each month).

it wanted for the Town. The signs were among the items on the Town’s wishlist. More plans for the signs were introduced during subsequent Board meetings. “There were several designs proposed,” Riemann said. The flagstone sign was only one of them. “We realized most of the signs would be in the TDOT right of way, so we had to work with them [Tennessee Department of Transportation] on what went in there,” Stuhl said.

“I’m really proud; there’s nothing like being able to perform and do music with your son,” Brian said. “For his first-ever performance, I think he did wonderful. He’s got a future in music.” Although Thomas said he wants to become “a professional football player,” he added, “I like playing instruments for fun. I’ve played saxophone for three years and trumpet for four years.” Culminating the roughly hourlong event — which also included songs from Angela Floyd Singers and Farragut High School Madrigals — was the ceremonial flipping of the switch to light up 45 red, green and blue artificial Christmas trees around the park, plus one roughly 12foot ornament-strew and multicolor-lit pine tree. Joined by a handful of eager children, Farragut Mayor Ralph McGill flipped the switch while musically accompanied by sixmember Concord Brass from Concord United Methodist Church. Moving from Glendale, Ariz. to Farragut in May, Mike and Crystal Burtch brought along son, Kelton, 4, and daughter, Isabella, 2. “The kids love the lights, and we as a family love Christmas, it’s our favorite holiday,” Mike said. Crystal added, “It’s kind of fun for them to see the lights right by where we live.” While 1-year-old Raylan Anderson enjoyed his first Light the Park, big brother, Trip, 3, and

parents Melissa and Paul Anderson attended last year’s event. “We loved it,” Melissa said. “It’s something quick and easy for the kids to enjoy. “We just like to do things in the Farragut community, and we know a lot of people here,” Melissa added. “And the dramatics of the trees being lit, it’s just cool.” Chad and Amy Bellis brought along daughter, Caitlyn, 5, and son, Alek, 3, and enjoyed their first-ever Light the Park. “It was great, we’ll be back,” Amy said. “I just liked when they turned the lights on. But I liked that they had the entertainment. Everybody was out here mingling and having a good time.” When the lights came on, “One of our children went, ‘wow,’” Chad Bellis said. Keeping things on a humorous, cheerful note while donned in “elf” attire was emcee Tony Cox, president of Republic Newspapers, Inc. (parent company of farragutpress) and general manager of iI05.3 WFIV. Enjoying the festivities were “at least 500,” an estimate by Sue Stuhl, Parks and Leisure Services director for town of Farragut, which co-sponsored the event with Farragut Business Alliance. Nicole and Cole Hexel of Farragut brought along son, Levi, 3, to enjoy their first Light the Park. “Levi loves the Christmas lights,” Nicole said. “It gets you in that Christmas spirit, and you get to see the Town come together,” Cole added. “It’s just a nice time for everybody.”

reading literature arts and math during the camp. “They’ve been doing this since the beginning of the year, they’ve been reading articles and writing about them,” Evans said. “… They’re not proficient at it by any means because this is something they are still learning about.” Tracy Marsh, FIS instruction coach, spoke about Common Core math learning. “We’re asking kids to not just be little calculators anymore,” Marsh said. “We’re asking them to understand the reasoning behind it and be able to prove evidence of not just 7 times 5 is 35, but why 5 times 7 is different

from 7 times 5.” The whole idea is to sharpen “critical thinking and problem solving” versus just memorizing a bunch of facts, Marsh said. “We work on getting our kids to explain how they came to their conclusion.” Solving math problems in Common Core requires using “picture models” to explain why an answer is correct, not just memorizing and regurgitating the correct answer. “I did not have one child, even struggling students, not be able to draw pictures out and use addition to solve a problem. … They would have not been able to do that two years ago,” Marsh said. Currently, Common Core standards, which is a state-mandated

initiative, only applies to math and reading language arts and not to science or social studies. Primary students began with Common Core standards last year, “and we’ve been very impressed with our thirdgraders, especially in math,” Marsh said. Grades three through eight implemented math Common Core standards last school year, and have added reading language arts Common Core this year, Marsh said. Marsh said Common Core “is much more rigorous. The text complexity of what kids are asked to read is very, very difficult. And they’re asked to do a lot more writing. The vocabulary is much more difficult.”

opinion 4A • FARRAGUTPRESS THURSDAY, DECEMBER 5, 2013

townview: Jeff Elliott “Buy in Farragut — It just makes good ‘cents’ for our Town.” This was the first tag line used in what is now the Shop Farragut program. In December 2006, the town of Farragut began the Buy in Farragut campaign as a long weekend event following the Thanksgiving holiday. Jeff The Elliott premise behind Alderman the event was for Farragut businesses to offer a sale, discount or special event to encourage citizens and visitors to shop, dine and stay in Farragut during the campaign. Through the years, the campaign was expanded and now the Shop Farragut program is administered by Farragut Business Alliance (farragutbusiness.com) with funding still provided by the town of Farragut. The Shop Farragut campaign serves many important purposes in our community, including supporting local businesses that then support Farragut schools and non-profit organizations and saving time and gas for citizens. However, the single most important outcome of this effort is the Local Sales Tax dollars that are generated to support the Town’s annual budget. In Fiscal Year 2013, local Sales Tax accounted for $3,950,573 in revenue, or just over 49 percent of our budget. Our next highest revenue source was just 16 percent, which means Local Sales Tax is by far the Town’s single largest revenue source each year. A common misconception

about Farragut is that we collect a separate Municipal Property Tax. The town of Farragut has never collected a Municipal Property Tax, and we do not receive any portion of the Property Tax you pay to Knox County. This fact further emphasizes the importance of Sales Tax dollars to the existence of the Town. We need our businesses to participate in Shop Farragut and for our citizens to shop and dine here — not just during the campaign but throughout the year — so the Town can continue providing the services that are so very important to those of us who call Farragut home. These services include: road improvements; improvements and additions to our parks, greenways and sidewalks; community events and programs; snow removal; capital projects; and much more. According to a 2013 Independent Business Survey — conducted by the Institute for Local SelfReliance (ilsr.org) which gathered data from more than 2,300 independent businesses in 50 states — independent businesses with an active “buy local first” initiative run by a local business organization reported average revenue growth of 8.6 percent in 2012, compared to 3.4 percent for those in areas without such an initiative. In addition, 75 percent of respondents reported that the “buy local first” initiative in their cities had a positive impact on their business. Please consider supporting our local businesses and the Town by shopping in Farragut this holiday season and beyond.

lettertotheeditor Zachary rebuttal A few weeks ago, the farragutpress ran a piece on my candidacy to represent the 2nd District of Tennessee in the U.S. House of Representatives. During that interview, I was asked direct questions regarding Congressman [John J.] Duncan [Jr.’s] 26 years in office and areas where we would differ. I answered those questions honestly and factually. Over the last two weeks Congressman Duncan’s office and now [state] Rep. Ryan Haynes have written letters to the editor refuting the statements I made during my interview. As they both stated, and I agree, we should look at the facts and remove the political spin from our responses. In my interview, I was asked about areas in which Congressman Duncan and I would differ. I mentioned that his votes to increase the debt ceiling, most recently in 2011, would be an area in which we would differ. I will stand by my statement in that John J. Duncan Jr. did vote to increase the debt ceiling by a staggering $2.1 trillion in August of 2011. On August 1, 2011, The Knoxville News Sentinel quoted Duncan as saying: “This agreement is apparently, the best we can do.” A vote to increase the

set up town halls, and he had none planned. This was also confirmed by his office to Heritage Action, which is a conservative policy advocacy organization. One of the primary responsibilities of our public servants is engagement and listening to “We the People.” If our elected officials do not engage with us, how can they represent and fight for us in Washington, D.C. It is important that we always look at and understand the facts when any statement is made or case presented. The political spin that will come from the permanent political class over the next nine months will be significant. “We the People” must examine the facts for ourselves and recognize that we have given the career politicians an opportunity to correct the course of our country, and they have proven their inability to do so year after year. I represent a new generation of conservative leader who will bring a businessminded approach to a government that has lost its way.

debt ceiling by $2.1 trillion, which leads to the continued expansion of government is not conservative leadership. It is not the best we can do. We expect better. I also referenced Duncan’s lack of leadership in that he has never chaired a committee in Congress. This statement is also 100 percent true. I confirmed this by calling the Library of Congress, which confirmed that Congressman John J. Duncan Jr., has never chaired one of the 25 committees in Congress. We also called his D.C. office, and they too confirmed that he has never chaired one of the 25 committees in Congress. While conservative voting is important, conservative voting without true leadership does not help us solve the enormous issues we have within our federal government. Our country needs more than just conservative voting. We need conservative leadership. Finally, I referenced the fact that Congressman Duncan did not hold any town halls or constituent listening sessions during the August recess. His office may say the opposite now, but in August we contacted Duncan’s D.C office about the Congressman’s town hall schedule and were told there was not time to

Local residents ‘Feeding God’s Children’

Lacy BOMA Teacher of the Year

ALAN SLOAN asloan@farragutpress.com

Feeding God’s Children, the brainchild of Farragut residents Sid and Shannon Kemp that started in 2004, combines food distribution, spiritual guidance and emotional support to places including Guatemala, Bell County, Ky. and Lenoir City. Yes, Lenoir City is a major area of concern. “Trying to get Christ into their lives by providing their basic needs of food and education, and locally trying to help the folks in Lenoir City,” said John Farinella, FGC board member and Farragut resident who is aided by his wife, Donna. “There’s a lot of poverty over there that we’re trying to beat. … There’s a substancial need.” The Lenoir City effort “is one of the new initiatives we’re working on,” said Sid Kemp, also FGC chairman, stressing an effort to feed children whenever they are not in school. “There are a lot of hungry kids five miles down the road.” Their sponsorship program is simple: “Thirty dollars a month feeds a kid, period,” Sid Kemp said. Efforts included an inaugural fall FGC Boys & Girls Golf Challenge at Concord Park Par 3 Golf Course off Northshore Drive. That effort was “trying to get kids See LOCAL on Page 12A

Pruitt, to watch the project take shape. “I set him up a real easy experiment that goes with the chemistry unit, so he’s going to do it; and it’s just going to entertain this one class,” Pruitt said. Bielich, whose daughter, Alexis Ann Bielich, attends Farragut Middle, recently moved from California to Tennessee with his wife, Robin, and daughter. “We probably had 10 parents come this year,” the teacher said. “We have a lot of parent volunteers. Pruitt noted she has parents who help on field trips, help get the lab set up, do administra-

tive work. The teacher said Bielich volunteered to entertain the class, and after learning more about him, she asked her students if they would like Doc Brown to come to class, and they responded, “Oh, cool!” “I said, ‘ Maybe if you wanted to have a special visitor during the school year, maybe I could talk to my friend, Doc Emmitt L. Brown,’” Bielich said. “I’ve been doing this character for Universal Studios in Hollywood for over 22 years. He’s a great character and See BROWN on Page 12A

Open Art Show 2014 May 16-17 Flag retirement ceremony ■ ROBBY O’DANIEL

rodaniel@farragutpress.com

Open Art Show 2014, with the theme “ALCHEMY – The Magic of Art and Flowers,” will take place May 16 and May 17 at Farragut Town Hall. Sponsoring the show is “Farragut Arts Council, in conjunction with the Dixie Highway Garden Club,” said Pam Ziegler, vice president of Farragut Arts Council. For artists wishing to submit for the show, art will be accepted on two days early in January. “The pieces will be accepted Thursday, Jan. 9 from 8 a.m. to 7 p.m. and on Friday, Jan. 10 from 8 a.m. to noon,” she said. Applications and fees will be accepted on those two days. Artists can submit an unlimited

amount of pieces, though the entry fee is $5 per art piece, she said. People can apply by going to the Town’s website, www.townfofarragut.org, she said, and applications also will be sent to all in the council’s artist directory. “The rules are all work must be original,” she said. “All two-dimensional work must be framed or stretched as appropriate and wirehanged. ... And then signed, completed entry form must be submitted for each work and include entry fee for each work. ... A price must be included on your entry form – in other words, what you would charge for that piece of art. We’re not selling any, but it must be on the form.” Those interested in buying art can talk directly with the artists and buy it from them, she said.

“Entries must be delivered to the Farragut Town Hall with all special display materials, such as hanging bars, et cetera, whatever you need to have it displayed,” she said. “We provide the screens to hang it on and the pedestals in which to display three-dimensional art. ... Entry fees are nonrefundable, and it’s $5 per entry. And art that’s accepted for the show must be available for the show from May 12 through the 18th. That means if you’ve entered a piece to be judged and to be shown, you can’t sell it ahead of time and have somebody else take it away. These pieces must be available for the display, and then afterward, whoever bought the art can, of course, have the art.” Open Art Show 2014 includes both an art show and a standard flower show.

Stay alert! The joy dispensers are here! I was shopping at Michael’s (the craft store) in the late afternoon when I heard a conversation in the next aisle between a mother and her s i x - y e a rold child. “ O h , Mama, look at this!” “ U h huh.” “I love Pam this!!” “ U h Young huh.” Make it “I have one don’t Fun! I!!!” “ U h huh.” “You made it for me didn’t you, Mama!!!!” “Uh huh.” “Can you make one for Sissy?” “Uh huh.” As I listened to the excitement and love in the sweet child’s voice, for her mother and her little sister, and the tired drone of her mother’s responses, tears welled up in my eyes. I thought about how many times I’d done the same thing with my children when they were young. After all, I had a centerpiece to make, a decoration for the front door to think about, col-

ors to consider, people coming for the holidays to entertain and make welcome and not enough time! At that moment in Michael’s I would have given anything to go back to just one time in the aisle of a store, hear my child’s voice and not miss what was really happening. Love, joy adoration. The stuff of Christmas! My kids are grown now and I’ll never again hear their little bell voices exclaiming their joy over something. That time is gone forever and it flew past like a cheetah on speed. I had to get to the next aisle and see the child! With tears streaming down my cheeks, I peeked around the corner and looked at the small girl’s happy, little face. She was all dressed up in a Christmassy dress and fancy socks. Her hair was dark brown in shoulder-length curls. She was holding a Christmas stocking with a Santa Claus on it. She looked up and smiled at me. Sissy was asleep in a stroller. Then I looked at the mother. She was tired; I could see it in her eyes. But when she looked into mine, she smiled seeing my love for her child and the moment. I told her what had gone through my mind listening to their conversation. Her tears started to

collect as she listened to me and then she said, “Now you’re making me cry.” She dabbed her eye with the back of her wrist, “Thank you, I needed to hear this. I get so busy and it’s easy to neglect her natural enthusiasm.” I told the mother it was obvious that her child had not been neglected, because she was such a happy little girl, and that I understood how easy it was to get wrapped up in our own thoughts and miss these holy moments. I left Michael’s knowing I wanted to write about this. Your children adore you and they are like little joy dispensers, especially during this time of year. Since it’s also an especially busy time for you, it can be so easy to miss those gifts of love and joy your children are eager to give to you. They’re gifts that can’t be wrapped up with festive paper or charged on Visa. Stay alert! This is a holy time. Merry Christmas! For more from Pam Young go to www.makeitfunanditwillgetdone.com. You’ll find many musings, videos of Pam in the kitchen preparing delicious meals, videos on how to get organized, ways to lose weight and get your finances in order, all from a reformed SLOB’s point of view.

Hardin Valley Academy students formed a circle roughly 90 feet in diameter to witness a new patriotic ceremony led by James Puckett, left, HVA school security officer and a retired U.S. Army chief warrant officer (25 years military service). The school’s inaugural U.S. Flag Retirement Ceremony was held on a sports practice field hill located between the main school building and Hardin Valley Road on a sunny Friday morning, Oct. 25. With four flags retired into a pit of fire, all four of which were flying at HVA when the school opened in August 2008, Hardin Valley junior Isaiah B. McGee, a cadet airman in Karns High School Air Force JROTC, retires two flags. Also retiring two flags during the ceremony was HVA senior Joshua R. Coleman, right, AFJROCT chief master sergeant. Principal Sallee Reynolds and assistant principal George Ashe recited information about the ceremony’s importance. Also in attendance was Gus Paidousis, Knox County Schools chief of security.

FHS, HVA bands delight during fall competition ■

ALAN SLOAN asloan@farragutpress.com

With “a very difficult show” it attempted to master, 2013 Farragut High School’s Marching Admirals pleased their band director during fall competitions. It was a similar challenge, with similar results during a “unique and rewarding season,” for Hardin Valley Academy’s Outdoor Performance Ensemble and its program, “The Digital Human.” “The kids did a great job this season. They had a really positive attitude,” said Keith Clupper, FHS band director, about how his 110 members handled its 2013 fall program “Superstitions.” “Throughout the entire season they worked really hard. They were able to achieve excellence with a very difficult show that we designed for them.” Among Marching Admirals’ competitive season highlights was Southern State Champions in Chattanooga. “The band swept [first places] in their class,” Clupper said. In addition to Tennessee, “You had bands from Georgia, Alabama,” Clupper added. “At that entire competition, there were probably around 35 bands there. We weren’t in direct competition with all those groups.” Overall, “One thing that’s really important to me is the

competitiveness of our marching program,” said Clupper, in his third school year at FHS. “Developing all the aspects of the marching program, which includes the color guard program, the percussion program as well as the wind players. “I think this is the first year we’ve had, from the beginning to the end of the season … where the kids that we have now are starting to grab hold of the vision that Michelle [Clupper, assistant director] and I put forward for the program,” he added.

Of the 110 members, only 16 are seniors, Clupper said. “You’re going to see over the next few years the numbers in the band program rebound a little bit,” Clupper added. “I think over the next few years you’re going to see some special things come out of this band program. Both in marching and in concert season. I want the marching program and the concert program both to be known, not just in Tennessee, but nationally.” At Hardin Valley, “I would characterize it as excellent,”

said Andrew Parham, HVA band director, about his 128 members’ season. “… It was an incredible result.” As for grasping “The Digital Human,” Parham said, “I think the last week of the season going into our last competition of the year was when everything felt jelled together and solidified and consistent.” Specifically, “I think our finals performance at Contest of Champions was by far the highlight of the entire year,” Parham said about HVA’s last perform-

ance, which was held in Murfreesboro. Among 17 bands, “We placed sixth,” Parham said, as “several” Tennessee bands were joined by “several bands from Kentucky.” In addition, “At one competition our color guard won Best Overall in Show,” Parham added about a show in Laurel, Ky. Oct. 12. “There were over 20” bands. Among his upperclassmen, “Many of them felt that this was the favorite show that they’ve done so far at Hardin Valley Academy,” Parham said.

Kimball Vaughn still remembers when he became a Mormon. “My parents were raised in the Mormon church, and when I was 8 years old, I decided I wanted to join the Mormon church and be baptized,” Vaughn said. “So I guess since I was 8, I’ve been a Mormon.” Vaughn, 21, of Farragut, completed a two-year mission, serving one year in the Utah Ogden Mission in Ogden, Utah, and one year in the Utah Salt Lake City

Mission. He began the mission in August 2011 and finished August 2013. “Basically for two years, it was kind of weird because we had to completely say goodbye to our family, and we lost complete communication with them,” he said. “We could e-mail them once a week but no phone calls except Mother’s Day and Christmas. So essentially we were going to a place that was foreign to us, and what we were going to do every day was teach people about Jesus Christ for two years.” He did a variety of things on

his mission, he said. “Primarily what we do every day is we would go out, and we would look for people that were interested in learning more about Jesus Christ or people that already knew Jesus Christ and already had a good relationship with him but wanted to strengthen it,” he said. He and others would teach them. They also helped people and the community, he said. He called his mission his life’s greatest experience thus far. See VAUGHN on Page 10A

VOAD Fair prepares kids ■

ROBBY O’DANIEL rodaniel@farragutpress.com

The East Tennessee VOAD Emergency Preparedness Fair took place Saturday, Sept. 21, at Cokesbury Center. Madelin Ebbert, an eighth grader from Farragut Middle School, led a booth at the fair that utilized the American Red Cross’ Scrubby Bear program. “It teaches little kids what germs are and how to get rid of them by washing their hands,” Ebbert said. Ebbert, 13, was helped by her friends and fellow Farragut Middle School students Alice Dupree and Caroline Wade. Ebbert outlined the steps in washing hands.

“First you get your hands wet, and then you get a squirt of soap and you wash them,” she said. “And then you rinse them, and then you dry them and turn off the faucet.” She addressed why it is important for children to learn proper handwashing. “Because if they just put their hands under the water, they aren’t really getting rid of the germs, and then they can get sick easier,” she said. She called the program effective. “I think it’s effective because it alerts little kids that germs are real and that if they aren’t careful, they can make you See VOAD on Page 10A

“I feel like my mission really strengthened my testimony in Jesus Christ, and I’m eternally indebted to my mission because I feel like it’s really helped me to gain a strong conviction that Jesus Christ lives and that he suffered for my sins and that he’s provided a way for me and for anyone to come back in his presence if we’re willing to follow him and do what he’d have us

do,” he said. “I literally cannot picture what my life would be like having not served my mission.” Born in Georgia, Vaughn was raised in Farragut. But starting with college, his life has taken a swing west. After graduating from Farragut High School in 2010, Vaughn went to college at Brigham Young University-Idaho for his freshman year. Then he went on his two-year mission in Utah before returning to college.

He transferred to Brigham Young University in Provo, Utah, beginning with his sophomore year this fall. “It’s been a pretty tough adjustment to buckle down again into college life and to study secular things again and writing papers and taking tests,” he said. “It’s coming, but it’s definitely been a struggle at first just because I’m not used to it anymore. I haven’t done homework for two years.”

gram last year, she said. Volunteers from Farragut Middle School also helped with the fire safety house at the fair. Mary Beth Birge, regional emergency services director for the American Red Cross for East Tennessee, said she was chair of the event this year. “There’s some very simple things that people can do to get prepared,” Birge said. “...

Getting a kit, getting a plan and becoming informed, those are the three steps for preparedness. It’s very simple, I think people think preparedness is difficult, and it’s not. I have a family disaster kit on our booth here that I put together, and it cost me less than 50 bucks.” People should practice plans, she said.

ference in the lives of all students who enter my classroom,” she said. McGill said Lacy, chairman of the math department at FHS, is a 30-year veteran educator, who in addition to her teaching tasks also assists with in-service trainings, most recently for the Common Core State Standards. She founded the Farragut High Math Academy, where she works with students and their mentors and other community organizations to inspire students in pursuing careers in math, engineering science and technology, he said. “During her six years as AP calculus teacher at FHS, every one of Mrs. Lacy’s students has taken the AP calculus exam and 97 percent have earned college credit,” he added.

“Her community involvement is also significant,” McGill said. “She integrates assisting the Love Kitchen and Second Harvest Food Bank into her classes.” Additionally, he said Lacy’s teaching philosophy centers around high expectations for every student in maximizing the students’ individual ability. The mayor also shared a story about his daughter, Kimberly. She was always allergic to math, but she was in Lacy’s class about 20 years ago, he related. “It was still a struggle, but, in the process you became her favorite teacher, and she made an A and she went on to be valedictorian,” McGill told Lacy, choking up as he spoke. “What an honor it is to come before you and speak,” FHS principal Michael Reynolds said. “I can’t tell you how thankful that I am that you

bestowed this on Ms. Lacy. “We are so blessed at Farragut High School to have such quality teachers -- outstanding teachers, outstanding students and a community that is dedicated to that excellence,” Reynolds added. “I think back to Mrs. Lacy and her career – 30 years of being dedicated to a labor of love, 30 years of demanding excellence. “She is a teacher of students and a teacher of teachers and a teacher of administrators. She’s dedicated to a cause,” he said. “What a treasure you have in Wanda Lacy and the staff of Farragut High School. She represents all the educators across East Tennessee who are dedicated to making sure that our students become those leaders who are not afraid to step forward, not afraid to ask why and not afraid to excel.”

helping kids,” Farinella said. “Ninety-five percent of the money we raise, or comes from our donors, goes directly to feed the kids,” Sid Kemp said. “We believe in feeding them physically, spiritually and emotionally.” Education efforts have included “an anti-bullying campaign up in Appalachia, and also a drug and alcohol [prevention] campaign,” Sid Kemp said of FGC work in Bell County, Ky. “We have feeding programs in five schools there. … We’re helping to build an abused women’s and children’s shelter in Appalachia because there are so many kids that live in conditions that are just horrible because the mines have shut down,” he added. “We have programs in South Florida, primarily in a Haitian refugee community; we have programs in Guatemala. … We have partners in those places that we work with who we trust that have proven to be good stewards. We have partners in Appalachia that we work through.”

recalled an inspirational story prompting her to give. “There’s a 3-year-old girl I know at a church nearby, and she needed a bone marrow transplant, and some random stranger matched her completely,” Williams said. “And it saved her life. I can’t give bone marrow, but I can give blood. They talked about it at a camp I went to, and they had the little girl there. And it was just really sweet.” Giving blood for the first time in her life, “I’m not nervous about it because it would be worse to be dying of cancer,” Williams said. “It could help save someone’s life. It can help someone with cancer or who’s been in a wreck. I can help someone live.” Lexi Mailahn, 17-year-old FHS junior, came to school that morning not knowing about the Medic drive, adding she had never donated blood. “My friend came up to me, and

she was like, ‘you should come and give blood with me because we’re going to help save people’s lives,” Mailahn said. “And I was like, ‘I’m interested. … Yeah, let’s do it.’” Before that, “I really didn’t think about it,” Mailahn said. “It doesn’t take that much time to do it. It really wasn’t that painful. It was definitely worth it. … It’s not that hard. … I was just excited to get to help people out.” On a lighter note, Mailahn added, “You get out of class.” Mailahn advised other FHS students, or anyone else thinking about donating, to “drink a bottle of water … and you should eat that day before you give blood.” Among the teachers and administrators donating was Terry Zimmer, a part-time FHS French teacher. During her donation period, Zimmer passed the time with an FHS student who, located in the adjacent station, was waiting to begin his donation process.

ROBBY O’DANIEL rodaniel@farragutpress.com

Farragut High School senior Trenton Cardwell was just waking up in the late morning hours of Thanksgiving day. It is not unusual for a high school student to sleep in on a holiday during a break from school. But where Cardwell awoke is a bit unusual. He, along with a handful of his friends, slept in their cars in the parking lot outside Best Buy along Parkside Drive. They had been waiting outside the store since Wednesday, Nov. 27, and they were anticipating the store’s 6 p.m. Thanksgiving night opening and all the big sales prices making the sleepover worthwhile.

Cardwell, in particular, was waiting to buy an Xbox 360 video game system, something he wanted badly. Even though the Xbox One – the next generation model of Microsoft video game consoles – had come out that month, it was the Xbox 360 that Cardwell still wanted. “All my friends have had an Xbox, and I just haven’t,” Cardwell said. “I’m that one guy who just doesn’t get online and play with them because I don’t have one. It’s really sad. I’m 17 years old, and I don’t have an Xbox.” Cardwell had slept in his Honda Accord. “There’s probably like a ton of blankets in my car that we just pile on, and then I just turn my car on every two hours when it’s too cold,” he said.

After being in South Knoxville for eight years, I Love NY Pizza moved to 10420 Kingston Pike, and opened in September. I Love NY Pizza has four owners: John Wright, his wife, Jenny, and Jamie and Meg Akins. They bought the restaurant from former owner Ted Cioffi in March 2012, John Wright said. “We were looking to make an investment, and I was looking at different businesses that were for sale in and around Knoxville,” John Wright said. “And I came across this one on a business broker’s site and went out and ate and just loved the food, started talking to Ted.” The decision to move was made because the restaurant needed an area with more traffic, he said. “It wasn’t an easy decision to make. We had a lot of great customers in South Knoxville, and a lot of them have followed us to West Knoxville. And that’s great.” He described the restaurant’s atmosphere as “unique, funky. We’ve got lots of photos and pictures on the walls of various New York icons. We built a large bar in the space. We try to be very friendly and welcoming. We make everything from scratch. We make dough and marinara and pizza sauce every day.” John Wright’s favorite of the restaurant’s offerings is homemade lasagna. “It’s made fresh,” he said. “... And it’s just really tasty, huge portions too.”

Autumn Care officially welcomed to area ■

After opening in May, the West Knoxville and Farragut location of Autumn Care Assisted Living held its grand opening Nov. 5. “We cater to individuals, typically elderly individuals that need assistance with their activities of daily living,” said Brenda Weatherly, executive director of Autumn Care’s Farragut-Knox facility. “... They rent an apartment here, and we provide their ADLs [activities of daily living]. And we have nurses on staff. We have CNAs on staff. We have an in-house physical therapy [and] an occupational therapy.” The Farragut-Knox location at 136 Canton Hollow Road, one of two Autumn Care facilities, has 44 rooms and is licensed for 56 residents, she said. It offers onebedroom to studio apartments. “We have in-room call light systems for emergencies,” Weatherly added. “We’re completely handicap accessible. ... We also have an activities director. We do outings. Also our breakfast here is a la carte, so you can have anything you want.

Cinderella story ends for Irish ■

KEN LAY Correspondent

Knoxville Catholic High School saw its gridiron Cinderella Story come to an end Friday night. The Irish, however, put up a valiant fight that came up just short in a 41-34 loss to top-seeded Fulton in Class 4A state tournament semifinals before a packed house on a chilly night at Fulton’s Bob Black Field Nov.29. Catholic (10-4), which entered the game after notching a pair of one-point victories in the Chattanooga area, wasn’t intimidated by the mighty Falcons. The Irish did someFulton 41 t h i n g Irish 34 that no other team had done against Fulton all season. Catholic scored five touchdowns and never trailed by more than 13 points on the night. “I was proud of our effort,” Irish first-year Jancek head coach Steve Matthews said. “There were a couple plays that we didn’t make. Every game comes down to two to six plays. We didn’t make those plays and they made them. “We were excited coming into this game but we just couldn’t make the plays and do the things that we needed to do to See CATHOLIC on Page 6B

A 62-53 loss to event co-host Walker Valley on WVHS’s home court Tuesday, Nov. 26, preceded a 45-27 setback to co-host

Jennifer Galloway, HVA head coach, said the losses “exposed some things we need to work on,” which includes “rebounding.” Beginning the season with victories against Ooltewah and Knoxville Central, the Lady Hawks crushed rival Karns 53-29 at HVA Monday, Nov. 25. “Our team chemistry is good,” Galloway said. “And the girls play hard.” Meanwhile, Hardin Valley’s boys have found success three times in five games by “getting to

the rim … that’s when we’re as tough as we can be, when we focus on attacking the basket,” Hawks boys head coach Keith Galloway said. Also opening 2-0 versus Central and Ooltewah, the HVA boys stumbled against Karns (7766) then lost at Walker Valley (67-60) before rallying to beat Bradley Central 64-59 at CHS Nov. 27. “We played really well the first two games.

She’s shooting the ball well,” Jennifer Galloway said. “Brie Carter has been big for us on the offensive glass,” the Lady Hawks coach added about her starting senior post. “We’re getting solid play from our point guard, Taylor Bishop. She’s been a good leader on the floor. And we’ve seen really great glimpses from Lacy Cantrell,” junior starting post.

Farragut High School’s athletic Signing Day featured five FHS seniors who finalized college scholarship choices by inking National Letter of Intent papers in Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium Monday morning, Nov. 18. With relatives of all five on hand, a ceremony highlighting each of the five signees’ career accomplishments culminated with individual photos alongside relatives. From left are baseball infielder Sam Schulze (CarsonNewman University signee), girls basketball wing Madison Maples (University of North Georgia), baseball infielder Chase Chambers (Tennessee Tech), gymnast Shauna Miller (University of Missouri) and baseball player Bo Baker (Tusculum College).

About beating Farragut, “We go in there and usually get our butts handed to us,” Fountaine said. “And we finally give it back to them, which is a great feeling.” To end Farragut’s win streak, Friedle said, “Feels amazing. … especially on that last-second goal.” Meanwhile, lost in the all the drama was the performance of FHS forward Felix Bjurstrom, who tallied three goals (hat trick) plus one assist despite an arm injury where he lacks “full mobility there” according to Rob Despins, Ice Admirals head coach. As for the late collapse,

Despins pointed to “a short bench.” Making things worse was the absence of starter Austin Scheidt (broken thumb). “We were laboring. … Fatigue was a big factor,” Despins added about his team late in the third period, as FHS blew a 4-1 lead late in the second period. Other goals for Bearden (1-1) came from Nick McGregor, Garrett Griffis, Sean Doyle, Drake Lamm and Jake Foard. Other assists were courtesy Tyler McFall, Doyle and Lamm. Kyle Lindsay and Trey Rogoski also scored goals for Farragut (11). Defender Brandon Timmis

added an assist. Bjurstrom said, “We’ve definitely got to capitalize more” on scoring chances. With a short bench, third periods are real tough. Back-checking’s usually slim to none, and it showed tonight. … Conditioning’s a key factor.” Despins added, “We just couldn’t back-check at the end of the game. They were rushing with three-on-ones, four-on-twos. They played those opportunities really well. … They had a bigger bench than us and we just couldn’t skate with them for the entire game.”

A once-in-a-lifetime goal for junior Jimmy Friedle and his Bearden-Karns hockey team. Friedle’s tap-in goal, which literally went into the net as the game-ending third-period buzzer sounded, Bearden-Karns 6 not only Admirals 5 broke the hearts of rival Farragut last Thursday, Nov. 21, in the Icearium. Bearden-Karns’ dramatic 6-5 come-from-behind victory — trailing 5-3 with 3:30 remaining — also broke the Ice Admirals’ 20-game winning streak that started at the beginning of last season.

“I was actually very surprised. I had no idea how much time was on the clock,” said Friedle, whose dramatic goal was assisted on a diagonal pass from about 50 feet on the left near the boards from senior Jake Fountaine, the last of his three assists. “I saw him on the boards, and I knew he was good with the stick,” Friedle added. “I decided to stay low to see if he could get it out and get a quick pass over to me. And that’s what ended up happening.” Fountaine said the puck “took a bounce off the boards” before he controlled it and passed to Friedle. “… I just tried to put it right in between [a defender], right to my teammate’s stick. And he happened to be there.”

moves, getting the basics down, so I’m definitely more comfortable this year,” Newby added. Meanwhile, Farragut’s boys ended up winless (0-3) in their own tournament following a 5544 loss to Cocke County (5-2) Saturday, prompting FHS head coach Chris Cool to call out his team in search of a special ingredient. “We’re trying to find some leaders right now. … Our main purpose right now is find five guys that want to lay their guts on the line for Farragut High School,” said Cool, as his Admirals fell to 2-4 overall despite a team high 15 from senior post Billy Williams. “We

haven’t found those yet.” Matt Eggert scored seven points for Farragut, with Drew Driscoll adding four. Other Lady Admirals scorers were Maegan Hudson with three points and two each for Miranda Burt, Rebecca Jameson, Anna Woodford and Kristen Freeman. Maples said her Lady Admirals “are not satisfied” after going 2-1 in the tourney (losing 39-32 to Grainger County Friday, Nov. 29). “Grainger County was a tough loss.” Against Cocke County, “defense and free throws were the main thing,” Maples said. “I thing defensive intensity is the main reason we win our games. We’ve come a long way with our defense,” Maples added. “We have people like Miranda Burt

and Anna Woodford who can come off the bench and stop their main girls.” Jason Mayfield, FHS head coach, said his girls “always show up defensively. Cocke County is a good offensive team. We’re pretty good at talking and rotating and communicating.” As for challenges, “Our offensive flow. We just need to work on swinging the ball more and getting it inside to our posts, then kicking back out,” Maples said. Mayfield added, “The last two games our offensive execution hadn’t been great. We’re just struggling to do simple things. … A lot of unforced turnovers.” Jeremy Byrd, Cocke County girls head coach, said Farragut’s “discipline” impressed him the most.

Fall Hank Aaron Tournament champion

out the services of the injured Daryl Rollins-Davis, took its first lead of the game when D’Ontay Tate scored on a 3-yard plunge to make the score 21-14 at the 3:27 mark of the opening quarter. From there, Fulton would never trail again but Catholic did manage to tie the game by halftime on a 5-yard touchdown run by senior Elijah Brown to make the score 21-21 midway through the second quarter. The two defenses took center stage in the third stanza. Fulton scored first in the second half when Xavier Hawkins had a 7yard run to give the Falcons a 28-21 lead with 3:10 to go in the frame. That advantage, however, was short-lived as Catholic junior running back Logan Lacey answered with a 5-yard scoring run to even the game at 21. Hawkins put Fulton up 35-28 late in the third with a 51-yard run out of the wildcat formation. He had another 5-yard scoring run with just under two minutes remaining in the game to make the score 41-28. The Irish pulled to within 4134 when Lacey caught a 17-yard touchdown pass from Jancek. Catholic’s onside kick was recovered by Fulton, which went on to run out the clock to end the Irish’s playoff run. The season-ending loss stung but the memories were all good for KCHS, which battled injuries all year. “It was a heck of a ride,” said Lacey, who rushed for 33 yards and caught two pass. “We had every injury possible but I think we have the most heart in the state.”

win the game.” Catholic certainly did what it had to early. In fact, the Irish got on the board first when junior quarterback Zac Jancek threw a 50-yard scoring strike to Will Martinez to give KCHS a 60 lead with 10 minutes, 17 seconds remaining in the opening frame and that was beginning of a first quarter full of fireworks. Wyatt Price’s extra point gave the visitors a 7-0 advantage. Fulton (14-0) answered in rapid fashion when senior field general Penny Smith connected with KJ Roper on an 85-yard touchdown pass with 9:17 left. The Falcons, however, missed the extra point and Fulton trailed 7-6. Catholic answered that punch with a body blow of its own. Janceck hooked up with freshman receiver Chase Kuerschen on a 25-yard scoring strike to give the Irish a 14-6 lead. “We came in here and gave it our all,” said Kuerschen, who had seven receptions for 120 yards. “The coaches told us that we had to come in here and fight and we did.” Keurschen’s touchdown pass gave KCHS a 14-6 lead and made the partisan Fulton crowd restless. But it didn’t take the Falcons, the defending Class 4A state champions very long to respond. Fulton’s Domonique Williams returned the ensuing kickoff 75 yards for a score to pull the Falcons to within 14-12. Fulton made a two-point conversion to tie the game at 14 midway through the first quarter. The Falcons, who were with-

The photographer is coming ... oh no!!! You have done your homework and research, hired the right Realtor to sell your home, painted, cleaned out, gave away, and cleaned some more... now getting ready for the pictures to be on the MLS! Don't take these for granted, they are what will intrigue and prompt a buyer to come and view your home. Take the time to prepare and put your home's "best foot forward". • Look at homes on the MLS you'll quickly see what you will need to change i your home. • Pay attention to details patio umbrella up, hose coiled up neatly, chairs up right and grill cleaned. • Toys hidden away. • Hide cords, or unplug if necessary these are very distracting in a photo. • Limit centerpieces to one large item, too much here will take away from the room drawing the eye to the table. • Kitchen counters, bathroom sinks and tubs - CLEAN and

BARE! • Lawn mowed, edged, weeded and seasonal flowers... one large flower pot by the front door makes more of a statement than small ones which will be lost in the finished photo. • Create outdoor living spaces with ambiance, lanterns, candles and neutral cushions. By putting in the extra effort and paying close attention to details allows the photographer to focus on what really matters... getting the PERFECT SHOT to sell your home!
