Town to host Dogwood Arts kickoff luncheon ■
HEATHER BECK email@example.com
Farragut is making preparations for Dogwood Arts Festival’s featured trail opening and invitation-only Dogwood Luncheon April 10 by replacing much of the bedded landscaping in Campbell Station Park. “What you’re going to
notice is a lot more color,” Town administrator David Smoak said of the landscaping changes. The main entryway into Campbell Station Park has been redone, as have the plantings around the signs, gazebo and many of the beds lining the parking lot. “There’s a ton of bulbs — tulips and others. They’ve put in a lot of dog-
wood trees and a lot of redbuds. I’m hoping that, over the next 10 years as it grows up, it’ll just be an outstanding park,” Smoak said. “We’re actually already seeing some of the bulbs pop up because it’s been so warm,” he added. Public Works director Bud McKelvey, who’s been handling installation of
the new landscaping at Campbell Station, said azaleas would complete the new look at the park. According to McKelvey, Public Works crews have planted 2,550 tulips, 70 crocuses, 180 hyacinths, 270 azaleas, 11 redbud trees and 20 dogwoods. “We looked at several sites around Farragut and West Knoxville, because
when there’s a featured trail, we try to put the Luncheon site in that neighborhood to just highlight it even more,” Dogwood Arts project manager Jennifer Baxter said. “We chose Campbell Station Park as our featured garden this year, too. It’s just beautiful. ... It’s kind of a no-brainer; it’s so beautiful,” she added.
FHS hosts first ■ HOF induction
Smoak estimated the revamp at Campbell Station Park was going to cost less than $10,000, out of a $50,000 budget line item that traditionally is split between Farragut’s parks each year for general landscape maintenance. “This year, we took all the money we typically put See ARTS on Page 2A
Home remodeling seminar held HEATHER BECK firstname.lastname@example.org
About 20 Farragut residents came to Town Hall Monday night, March 4, for a citizen seminar on home remodeling and permitting. “We require permits for nearly everything,” Steve Coker, a Farragut codes officer, said. Residents in Farragut should be aware that many home remodeling projects require permits, whether those projects are DIY or being handled by a contractor. “We work for you, the resident of Farragut. We’re here to ensure you get what you are paying for and that the work meets standards,” Coker said. Projects that need a permit from Farragut: • New buildings, additions, and structural additions such as gazebos, patios and pools • Plumbing, gas and mechanical connections, additions and replacement units • New roofing, guttering, flooring and siding Simply replacing existing shingles or roofing, as was done following recent hail storms, does not require a permit, but any structural changes to the roof do. “When in doubt, check,” Coker said. “It may seem frivolous, but we want to document things. If you don’t get a permit, we don’t know what’s going on,” he added. Permit prices are determined by the estimated cost of See REMODELING on Page 6A

Johnson earns ‘Code Official of the Year’ award

Whenever referencing Farragut High School athletics history, especially on the subject of Bill Bates, it’s hard not to think “stars.” With one of its two major athletic symbols a star, FHS introduced Bates, former Admirals football star from the midto-late 1970s who went on to NFL success, with 15 other star players and coaches in school history for a special celebration and ceremony. Induction of Farragut’s inaugural Hall of Fame athletic class — also highlighted by a keynote speech from Johnny
Majors, ex-Tennessee Volunteers Football head coach — took place in FHS Commons Saturday night, March 9. “Wow, this is great. The inaugural class,” said Bates, spokesman for the inductees, who went on from FHS to become a highly regarded special teams player with the Dallas Cowboys. “To be inducted with all these great athletes and coaches is such a great honor. “Coach [Bob] Henry and coach [Ken] Sparks here, they changed people’s lives, and they changed my life,” Bates added. “When I was in high school, here, coach Henry said, ‘Dream and shoot for the stars. Dream as high as you can,
because you never know, you may just reach your star. Your dream may come true.’” “My dream was to play for the Dallas Cowboys,” well known for its helmet star similar to Farragut’s, added Bates, Class of 1979. Along with Bates’ sister, Rachel Bates Bellefeuille (Class of 1989, volleyball, basketball, golf, softball), eight other former FHS student/athletes were inducted, including: Neil Clabo (1971, football, basketball, baseball); Beth Willis Dolente (1990, basketball, volleyball) and the late Jimmy Elliott (1980, basketball, baseball). Other players inducted were Shannon Simmons
(1994, track and field, basketball); Kevin Yeager (2000, track and field, basketball, soccer); Katherine Marshall Moore (1987, track and field, cross country); Tracie Foels (1988, soccer, basketball) and Tyson Clabo (2000, football, basketball). Six coaches, including the late Bill Clabo (football, 1961-76) and the late Jack Carr (golf, 1984-99), were inducted. Honorees accepting their Hall of Fame plaques during the ceremony were John Heatherly (baseball, 1980-93); Lynn E. Sexton (basketball, baseball, 1961-91); Bill Parker (track and field, cross See HALL on Page 5A

Farragut’s fire marshal, Dan Johnson, recently was recognized for being “knowledgeable, hard-working and dedicated to his community and profession,” when he was named Code Official of the Year by East Tennessee Building Official Association. “It’s an honor to be nominated by your peers, and then to be chosen as the individual that has those outstanding abilities that your peers feel constitutes giving you the Code Official of the Year award — it’s a prestigious honor,” Johnson said. Johnson “It’s chosen by your peers and not by some other group that might not be familiar with the work and job duties involved,” he added. See JOHNSON on Page 6A

away for two or three parks, and we put it all toward Campbell Station Park in order to beautify
it for Dogwood Arts Festival,” he said. “I don’t think that park’s had a makeover in years. ... It should really enhance the park’s beauty,” he added.
Farragut Public Works crews have gone on a planting spree at Campbell Station Park to ready the park for the invitation-only Dogwood Luncheon April 10, kicking off the opening of Farragut’s dogwood trail, the Dogwood Arts featured trail for 2013.
Traditional Funerals • Cremations • Green Burials
Farragut is Dogwood Arts Festival’s 2013 featured trail. The Farragut Dogwood Trail begins at the entrance to Fox Den Subdivision, which includes beautiful homes with rock gardens, dogwoods, azaleas, tulips and ornamental Japanese maples, then continues through Country Manor and Village Green. “We’re certainly glad to have them here in our park. It brings in people that might not normally have a chance to come to Farragut that live in the area to see our Town and see our park and how beautiful it is,” Smoak said. Bus tours of Farragut’s trail will be held April 12-14 and will
include stops at Farragut Folklife Museum at the Farragut Memorial Plaza at Town Hall. Buses leave at 11 a.m. to 2 p.m. each day, departing from the corner of Gay Street and Clinch Avenue in Downtown Knoxville. Seating is limited; cost is $5 per seat. To reserve a seat, call Dogwood Arts, 865-637-4561. Handicap accessibility will be provided with advanced reservation. Farragut’s featured public gardens include Campbell Station Park, 417 N.

671-TALK throughthelens: Building Standards
Farragut’s Board of Mayor and Aldermen has discussed adopting development standards for commercial buildings in Town. Do you think commercial buildings in Farragut should have a certain “look”? What types of design standards would be appropriate? Do you favor buildings constructed of a certain type of material? Should the Board dictate how developers construct commercial buildings? Let us know! Call or e-mail presstalk at 865-675-8255 or email@example.com
firstname.lastname@example.org • Thank you, town of Farragut, for the beautiful landscaping on our calming islands on Grigsby Chapel. As I drive down every day, I’m just so grateful for the town of Farragut for repairing the islands and making them beautiful for everyone to enjoy. Sometimes we all misjudge things and need to go back and make repairs, and you’ve done a beautiful job with that. I’m amazed that you were able to do this much landscaping for the amount of money you had to do it with. Thank you so very much. The whole town of Farragut should be grateful to you for the beautiful work you have done. • Hi. I just wanted to say how great the new calming islands look. It’s such an improvement over what there was there and no matter what it costs, I think it really shows how classy Farragut is. Thank you. • The shoe repairman that was at Century Plaza is now working for Prestige Cleaners and I think he’s working in the Halls location, and I agree: he was an excellent shoe repairman. As far as Helen, I don’t know where she’s at. • This is in response to the shoe repairman: he is now working for Prestige Cleaners, and if you bring your shoes to any Prestige, he will get them. And Helen is now next to the Rush [Fitness Center]; she’s on the corner just to the right of the Rush on Lovell Road. Hope they have good business. • Just got last week’s
presstalk and I was wondering why all the high school baseball pictures was [sic] of Farragut High School boys and not Hardin Valley [Academy] or Bearden [High School]. That doesn’t seem fair. Thank you. • Yes, I think the new landscaping on Grigsby Chapel [Road] will be a great addition compared to what had been there. Unfortunately, the taxpayers are going to have to pay twice to have this done the right way. I’d also like to compliment both Ingles and Kroger for keeping their gas prices down so much lower than all the other companies around. As a consumer, we sure appreciate that. Thank you. • This is a comment about the guy in March 7 paper, who complained that you guys were not reporting right on the sports page. To the sports guys, I live in Knox County. My children go to the Farragut Schools. The ’Press is a FARRAGUT paper. You wonder why they report about a FARRAGUT team???!!! Really. I support Farragut. I am not a sports crazy person. But guess what, surprise, Knoxville News Sentinel will gladly take your money, and they report all the sports. The ’Press does report, as they said, equally, but I want to know about FARRAGUT. Let [Hardin Valley Academy] get their own paper, or Bearden. For me I am glad the [farragutpress] reports the goings on in FARRAGUT. Hello ... . Thank you for your time. • In response to the flood of
complaints about time/money spent on new landscaping in the calming islands along Grigsby Chapel [Road], I’d like to give my heartfelt thanks to all of the hardworking, talented folks who designed and installed the beautiful greenery in these islands. I drive up and down Grigsby Chapel at least 15 times a week, and it brightens my day to see an oasis of healthy, lush plants break up the monotony of concrete and asphalt. I understand that drivers (still) are irked by the existence of these calming islands; however, since they are clearly here to stay, why not make them pleasant to look at? I also am glad that someone was clever enough to place rocks at the ends of each island — it seems like saplings placed at the ends of islands are the inevitable casualties of sharp turns and other driving mishaps. FYI, I am not affiliated with the town government nor
parties contracted to design/install the island landscaping. I am a housewife and mother who believes that attention to aesthetics is one of many things that makes Farragut a great place to live! • Editorial freedom is a wonderful concept, but it does come with its responsibilities.

Knox County holds summit to look at school security ■ ALAN SLOAN
Ripple affects from alleged inadequate installation of electronic security equipment at Hardin Valley Academy in 2008, and at Powell Middle School, led to a “security summit” of Knox County leaders with ties to county schools Friday, March 1. The December 2012 kindergarten tragedy in Newtown, Conn., has fueled a massive review of Knox County Schools security — most notably electronic security, including alleged problems reported anonymously with Farragut Middle School
video security. Three major initiatives were recommended or reaffirmed in a meeting on the first floor of Andrew Johnson Building, downtown Knoxville. The newest of those came from Dale Smith, CEO of Public Building Authority of Knoxville and Knox County, suggesting a “contract audit” and hiring an independent auditor. “A contract audit of a few schools to look at what equipment is in place and what was specified in the contract, and if those two things match each other,” said Dr. Jim McIntyre Jr., Knox County Schools superintendent.
About the alleged inadequate installation and supervision of electronic security by former KCS contractor, Professional Security Consultants and Design, Inc., “I didn’t actually know how long PSCD had been working in other [KCS] schools, some of it was, I guess, in ’03,” Smith said. “By ’06 they were working in every school. It seemed implausible that they only did a really poor job in two-out-of-two schools for us [HVA and Powell Middle].” This contract audit would grade school electronic security systems only to the level of technology that system was intended to produce when it was originally installed.
As for time frame, “It should be able to be done over two weekends,” Smith said, adding that results would be “in our hands in six to eight weeks, at most.” There was general agreement that the audit would cost an estimated $12,000 to $15,000. McIntyre recommended a “random draw” to choose a handful of schools for the contract audit. About Smith’s plan, Karen Carson, Knox County Board of Education chair and District 5 (Farragut schools) representative, said she would “bring it to” to the entire school board (meeting after deadline).

country, 1976-1996) and Lendon Welch (football, track and field, baseball, basketball, 1959-1981). After renovation of FHS’s Lynn E. Sexton Gymnasium this summer, a wall in the gym’s concourse will be set aside with a plaque honoring each inductee according to Seth Smith, FHS athletic director. Chosen based on a “points system,” inductees “were able to accumulate points based on their college and pro career,” Smith added. Bates said FHS is “a great high school to be a part of, and I will continue to cherish this day and
the friendships I have, lifelong, through all the people here.” While a defensive back at UT, Majors said Bates “got run over by a certain back [Hershel Walker in 1980] but he didn’t let that ruin his career. … He became probably the most famous, well known, respected special teams player in pro football history.” Other ceremony honorees included Donald Dodgen, assistant athletic director, physical education teacher and former FHS boys basketball head coach (1996-2010), who earned 2013 FHS Athletic Service Award. Also honored with FHS Lifetime Athletic Service Awards were Clyde Floyd, labeled FHS
football’s “historian,” along with the late Glen Darnbush, the late Charlie Harmon and the late Tucker Schmollinger. Emcee Erik Gerhardt, i105 WFIV’s “Radio Voice of Farragut Athletics,” profiled each ex-player’s and coach’s accomplishments. Inductees then were presented their Hall of Fame plaques by Smith and David Moore, FHS driver’s education teacher and Lady Admirals softball head coach.

the project. To get a permit, submit two detail construction plans and two copies of a site plan at engineer’s scale to show setbacks and other details. In addition, licenses are needed for some work in Farragut and Knox County, meaning DIYers might not be able to legally do some work themselves without a license. For example, in Knox County, any home project costing more than $3,000 requires a “home improvement” license. If a homeowner hires a contractor for a project, Farragut’s Community Development department urges homeowners to ask for proof of insurance and to use licensed and bonded contractors. Be sure a contractor working in the home gets the required permits and inspections. Farragut does inspections for footers; underground plumbing; roughed-in framing; plumbing, gas and mechanical work, and a final look-over of the project. Electrical inspections are done by LCUB. “Whatever you want to do on your own home, you can do, as long as it’s to code,” Coker said. During a question-and-answer session, a homeowner asked if a previous improvement done without a permit would affect her home sale. Coker and other codes officials said if the project was done correctly, most likely not. But if any changes aren’t up to code and a home inspector finds them, that could spell trouble. “They won’t loan money on a home that hasn’t been permitted and approved,” Coker said. “The improvement could be unsafe and hazardous to occupants and it could result in costly legal action,” he added. Also speaking during the seminar was Colin Cumesty, Farragut’s fire prevention officer, on the importance of smoke and carbon monoxide alarms. “Fire technology has jumped forward by leaps and bounds,” he said. Smoke detectors should be placed in each sleeping area, outside each sleeping area, and with at least one on each floor. Batteries should be checked monthly and replaced yearly.
Code Official of the Year is the most prestigious award the ETBOA bestows on code officials. Johnson was recognized at the ETBOA annual training and safety meeting in February in Sevierville. “The Town is extremely lucky to have Dan,” Farragut
Community Development director Ruth Hawk said. “His experience, knowledge and expertise help ensure safe buildings for our citizens and business owners,” she added. Johnson began working as fire marshal for the town of Farragut through Rural Metro Fire Department in 2001. He began work in the fire prevention office in Knox County in1997.
“My job duties as the fire marshal for the Town include code enforcement, fire investigation, public education and maintaining a positive partnership between Rural Metro and the Town,” Johnson said. Johnson and his wife, April, have one son and live in Farragut. Johnson was elected president of the ETBOA Board of Directors
in 2012 after serving as vice president in 2011 and secretary/ treasurer in 2010.

CCS celebrates Arbor Day with Cindy Doyle

J.T. Sudderth, fourth-grader in Jennifer Alford’s Concord Christian School class, quickly noticed State Farm Agent Cindy Doyle. “She gave us the trees,” said J.T., among three classes of CCS fourth-graders to receive a 12-to18-inch evergreen sapling, courtesy of Doyle’s funding, during an Arbor Day celebration at CCS Friday afternoon, March 1. Doyle responded to J.T. and other grateful children, “You’re welcome. Glad you like them.” Thanks to Doyle’s gift, reaching roughly 800 fourth-graders total that also included Christian Academy of Knoxville, Cedar Bluff Elementary School and Hardin Valley Elementary, chil-
dren such as J.T. and Emma Lacharite, also in Alford’s class, have special plans for their tiny trees. “I’m going to plant mine next to my grandma’s fig tree,” J.T. said. “I’ve always wanted a tree, and my grandma’s always wanted a tree. And I think this is going to be really good just to put next to her’s.” Emma said, “At my house we have a sloping hill, so at the bottom we have this really bare spot, and my dad’s a huge gardener, so he’ll love to plant this tree and stuff with me. It’s going to be really fun.” In her first year of sponsorship, Doyle said she was “approached by the Fourth Grade Foresters group, it’s a nationwide organizaSee ARBOR on Page 14A

Until last summer, Jamie Pratt had absolutely no confidence in her ability to sing in public. Fast forward to late last month when Pratt, using her guitar and voice to woo three judges, earned the title of Farragut Idol. “I’ve always thought I was a really bad singer. But then last summer, God called me into worship leading. Doing the music, leading the songs,” said Pratt, a Farragut High School junior who won the school’s
third annual Idol competition Saturday, Feb. 23, in Vickie B. Wells Auditorium. “Over the summer, somebody told me I wasn’t as bad a singer as I thought, so I thought, ‘Hmmm, I’ll explore this,’” Pratt added. Pratt won versus 12 other FHS contestants, each competing in three rounds: a capella, music choice and contestant choice (a cappella or music). As one of four finalists, Pratt’s only previous singing contest experience was at church last year. See IDOL on Page 13A

Ask the Vet
FMS dance recognized
Can rat poison harm my pet? Q: My neighbor said her dog, Alex, almost died last week from eating rat poison. I’ve heard that rat poison was bad for dogs, but I didn’t know it was that serious. Can you give me more information, for Stephanie the safety of my dog Myers Ask and cat too? the Vet — Kate, Farragut A: Accidental ingestion of rat poison can become a life-threatening situation. Rat poison is made to kill rats, but unfortunately, it can kill dogs and cats the same way. Without treatment, affected dogs or cats will slowly bleed to death internally over 3-6 days. Rat poison damages and eventually destroys the body’s Vitamin K stores. Without Vitamin K,
other clotting factors cannot work, and the blood simply cannot clot. The good news is that Vitamin K is the antidote. Treatment is often started with injectable Vitamin K1 and continued with pills for 2-4 weeks, depending on the exact ingredients of the rat poison was ingested. If you know that your dog or cat has eaten rat poison, your veterinarian can induce vomiting if the poison has been eaten in the past hour or so. Even if this is successful, most veterinarians still recommend giving the oral Vitamin K, erring on the side of caution. Many owners do not see their pet eat the rat poison (or find the chewed up packaging), and that’s when it can become more serious, such as in your neighbor’s case. Affected dogs or cats will become increasingly lethargic, but by the time clinical signs are obvious, the pets are often very ill. Bleeding can be in the abdomen and/or in the chest. Blood transfusions are often necessary to save these pets.
And as a side note — there is a new rat poison on the market that contains bromethalin. This toxin works in a different way, and there is no antidote. It is much more toxic to our pets and unfortunately has much higher fatality rates, in comparison to the conventional rat poisons. These and all chemicals and toxins should always be kept safely where pets cannot access them. Send your veterinary questions to firstname.lastname@example.org

Carroll is March ‘Apple’
Karnes From page 7A
Jane Carroll, right, has been named Farragut Intermediate School’s Crystal Apple Award winner for March. Carroll is pictured alongside principal Kay Wellons.
However, “My rewards have always been in the children that I’ve taught and how they always seemed to have a good time in my class,” Karnes said. “To this day I have them coming back and talking to me about what they learned in sixth-grade social studies and the fun things we used to do.” Carolyn Westbrook, FMS sixthgrade language arts teacher, has worked under, or alongside, Karnes for 23 years. “Students loved her and learned volumes because she made learning fun and relevant,” Westbrook said. Ending her career as principal at FMS after serving six years as
Bearden Middle School principal, “It’s been like coming back home because I did work here so long,” Karnes said. “And many of the faculty and staff are still here, and were here four years ago when I came here. “It’s a wonderful way to finish my career,” she added. “I loved teaching. I loved going to Bearden Middle, that was a great adventure for me. The people that I met there were wonderful. “But coming back here was coming back home.” During an FMS winter sports banquet Thursday night, March 6, Denise Simmons, parent of an eighth-grade FMS student, saluted Karnes in front of the gathering. “Thanks for taking care of our
children,” Simmons said among her words of praise to Karnes, who was presented an arrangement of roses during the ceremony. As a principal, Westbrook said Karnes “inspires her staff to give their best to students. She encourages teachers to excel in their areas of giftedness and recognizes that teachers can reach the same goals through a variety of methods. Rich Fulford, FHS assistant principal and AD, told the gathering, “I’ve worked under six principals, and she’s by far my favorite one to work for. To be honest, it’s like working for your mom. “But, also, I love her,” he added. “She’s a great lady and we’re fortunate to have had her.”

BHS runners-up in state Science Bowl ■
ALAN SLOAN email@example.com
Following a third-place finish during PBS East Tennessee Scholars Bowl last fall, Farragut High School’s Scholars Bowl team became FHS Science Bowl Team 1, looking to avenge last year’s close loss to Bearden in Tennessee Science Bowl. Bearden, however, would have the better showing once again. Though reaching the final 16 among a 55-school field statewide, FHS Team 1 then ran head-first into a scholarly brick wall: Oak Ridge Team 2 junior captain Emily Cheng. Cheng almost single-handedly sent FHS Team 1 home in a onesided round of 16 loss, ending hopes of a state title at Blount County Campus of Pellissippi State Community College Saturday, Feb. 23. “It was kind of incredible, their team captain answered every question almost exactly correct. I’ve never seen anything like that before,” said Matthew Milligan, FHS physics teacher and team coach. However, “I think our team did really well overall, we’ve been preparing for a long time,” said Akshay Soni, FHS Team I junior, who along with team captain, sen-
ior Lawrence Wang, helped lead FHS to last year’s second-place finish. “It was a very balanced team.” Along with junior Lam Tran and alternates Kenneth Ye, a junior, and Connor MacLean, a senior, FHS Team 1 defeated Signal Mountain, Sequoyah, Oneida, Bradley Central and White HouseHeritage in its “Crick Division.” Each showdown of teams — four participants plus one alternate — features two eight-minute halves and a two-minute “halftime,” with a series of short answer and multiple choice questions on such topics as physics, chemistry, biology, mathematics, engineering and earth-and-space. Questions, worth four points during lightning rounds and 10 for a bonus question correctly answered, get increasingly tougher as teams advance. FHS Team 2 was comprised of only three members — sophomores Don Joo, Daniel Hong and Jason Fu — yet won four of its six matches despite not advancing. Meanwhile, Bearden’s seniorladen Team 1 came within one correct answer at the end of repeating as state champs. Led by sponsor Julie Smalling, a BHS chemistry teacher, Bearden

Idol From page 7A
“I did our Open Mic Night at our Lead Worship at Christ Covenant [Presbyterian Church] for the y o u t h group,” Pratt said. Surviving the first a cappella round as one of nine remaining with her Skerik s o n g , “Nothing I Hold Onto,” then left as one of the final four singing “Lady of Fortune” with her guitar, Pratt, 16, said she had to change gears in preparation for her final song, “Hurricane.” “I had never played that song on the guitar before, because I thought the last round was supposed to be a cappella. ... I wasn’t planning on using a guitar for the last song, but I saw a pick on the ground so I just grabbed it,” Pratt said. Other FHS Idol final four con-
testants were senior Kendall Calkin, junior Ian Skerik and sophomore Nora Gross. Although a member of FHS Orchestra and well-versed in competitions playing viola, Pratt said she does nothing “vocal” in terms of school clubs. “I’ve gotten first chair at several orchestra competitions.” Judges were Jason Jennings, an FHS graduate and former lead singer with “Fishers of Men,” a Christian rock band; Greg Lemmons, a Christian musician, and Eric B., an area disc jockey. Proceeds from this year’s event, sponsored by FHS Interact Club and FHS Leadership Initiative class, go to Shelter Box, an organization that “sends an enormous plastic box [to], usually, a foreign country that’s had a disaster,” said Michelle Brossett, FHS Leadership Initiative and graphic design teacher. “And the box is designed where an extended family could live out of that box. It has a tent, it has a stove, it has water filtration, blankets,” she added. “Some of the necessities if you had kids.”

won nine straight matches before losing a 12-8 heartbreaker to Summit High School of Spring Hill in the championship showdown. BHS earned a $750 check from U.S. Department of Energy, event sponsor.
“It was a lot of fun, but it’s kind of a bummer to lose in the last round,” said Hayes Griffin, BHS senior captain, joining seniors Dalton Chaffee and Cole Graham as returnees from last year’s state championship team that earned a trip to the national competition in Washington, D.C. Also contributing this year were
BHS senior alternates Michael Pearce and Tabitha Colter. Hardin Valley Academy’s Team 1 — comprised of seniors Ian Windham and Isaiah Bell and sophomores Avery Sukienik, Kai Zhao and Chase Toth — won four of six division matches but did not advance.

tion. “Since it’s not been here in Knoxville, they asked me if I would bring it to Knoxville,” added Doyle, whose agency is located at 248 N. Peters Road, Suite 4. “I thought, ‘I’ll try it this year and see how it goes.’ ... I thought, ‘we’ll start with a group of four elementary schools this year in West Knoxville and see how this goes.’ “So far it’s been received very well.” Debra Ersch, co-founder of Fourth Grade Foresters Project, said “this project is made possi-
ble because community people like Cindy Doyle covered the cost of each of the individually packaged evergreen trees, so that there is no cost to the students, the teachers, the school or the taxpayer.” While fully supported by Leigh Ledet, CCS Elementary School principal, Doyle’s Arbor Day gifts also benefited fourth-grade students in Hayley Miller’s and Brooke Bachand’s classes. Each fourth-grader who receives a tiny evergreen becomes a member of Fourth Grade Foresters, according to FGF information provided by Doyle.

Make it Fun!
Learn how to be your own best friend
Today I accidentally received an email not meant for me and since it was very short, I read it before I realized it wasn’t’ for me. It said, (I’m going to use different names) “ H e y Mary I got another e m a i l about this i n n e r c h i l d thing, what do you think about it? Pam Maggie.” Young Attached Make it to the post was Fun! one of the testimonials from one of my Make it Fun followers. It made me wonder what “Maggie” thought and what she’d say to Mary. I think the hardest part of understanding this inner child thing is attaching a persona to thoughts we think that are contrary to what we want to do. In other words, unless we are very aware, we do things that are selfsabotaging. Self-help is nothing new and yet how many of us really know how to help ourselves? We like to get help from professionals, books, support groups and such when all along there is wisdom within us that unless we pay attention to it, we miss it. I have loved the results of meeting and forging a relationship with Nelly my inner child. She’s not a real child with blood and bones, but she’s a real child with thoughts and feelings and she was with me even though I didn’t know it, ten years ago when I was under the pressure of $26,000 plus in credit card debt. When my house was a mess 36 years ago I now
know she was there because my reason to get the place organized was so that I’d have more free time to play! And I played with her to lose the 35 pounds I wrote about in my book, The Mouth Trap: the butt stops here! Suggesting to those having trouble imagining this inner child, to find a photo of themselves from their childhood has helped many. When you look at a picture of yourself when you were young and innocent it can help you be more patient, kind and compassionate with yourself as you reclaim your balance and the peace that comes with that. I can only speak for women, but I can guess this concept of an inner child works for men too. (Just read what St. Paul had to say in Romans 7: 17-20.) We women grow up and most of us have babies and are thrown into motherhood with the force of a crashing wave. My neighbor just had her first baby and she has that look! I visited her at 11:30 am one morning and she was still in her night gown, the house was a mess, her hair was tangled and shaped a little like a rooster. Charlie slept peacefully in a vibrating baby holder and Buckley (the family dog) was needy for the first time since I’ve known him. “I’ve been up all night,” were her rather dazed first words to me. Sleepless nights, cracked nipples, healing stitches, spit-up splotched blouses, shirts, skirts, shoes, you get the picture. I think it’s with the onset of motherhood that we start forgetting our own well-being. We can only neglect ourselves so long before we start to see the results of neglect. It usually shows up in a messy house, an unbalanced budget or overweight. (Sometimes all three!) My motto is “Make it fun and it
will get done!” The main message I have for this inner child thing is, to learn how to have fun with YOU. If I had my way, the title of this Make it Fun article would have been, Have Fun Playing with Yourself! But of course that title would cause an upheaval! But I really, really mean it when I say I hope you can learn how to play with yourself. When you are your own best friend, you will love your life with a passion only those of you, who know, know. I remember when I was young I whined to my mom that Donna
Trotland said she didn’t want to play with me. Mom said, “Well you go outside and play by yourself and act like you are having fun.” I remember wondering what to do? What I did was start running and doing cartwheels and rolling around on the lawn. I remember it being an act at first but soon I was having fun! And you know what? Donna came over and wanted to play! I’ve said this before; all of our problems are windows of opportunity to get to know ourselves better. What a wonderful plan God
had for us! When you spend the time getting to know and understand what has caused a problem in your life, you get the joy of getting to know YOU. The YOU God made and loves and if God loves you, you should love YOU too. Now go play with yourself, and you know what I mean. Hopefully Mary and Maggie have a little better idea of what this inner kiddy thing is all about. 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.

Jet’s Pizza expands ■
HEATHER BECK firstname.lastname@example.org
Farragut’s Jet’s Pizza recently became the only of its kind after an expansion added a bar and private dining room to the restaurant. “We are the only full-service, dine-in with beer and wine Jet’s Pizza in the entire country,” said Ashley Middlebrooks, Jet’s Pizza marketing manager for the area. “There are no plans for any other of this kind, and we are still perfecting our overall picture of what it can be,” she added. The private dining room seats about 45 people comfortably, Middlebrooks estimated, and can be reserved by anyone for parties or meetings. The bar serves beer and wine, and Middlebrooks hopes to be able to provide full bar offerings in the future. The menu is the same as the dine-in area across the restaurant, and even includes old-school video and pinball machines for family-
friendly fun. “The games were put in to be fun for everyone,” Middlebrooks said. “We intend on adding more games soon and are looking to hold corn-hole tournaments this summer with prizes and weekly specials. We consider ourselves a family-friendly restaurant and welcome everyone,” she added. The four Knoxville area Jet’s Pizza locations are owned by Joe “J.C.” Ford, who also owns restaurant locations in Michigan and plans three more for Knoxville’s metro area. “Jet’s Pizza is the seventeenth largest pizza chain in the nation,” Middlebrooks said.

Gander Mt. says no plans for gun range ■
Gander Mountain in Turkey Creek sees big crowds each Friday morning with its shipments of ammunition.
HEATHER BECK email@example.com
Plans to expand Farragut’s Gander Mountain location with the addition of a gun range apparently will not be coming to fruition. The plans — which would have added 10,000 square feet and included a proposed gun range to the store — were approved by Farragut Municipal Planning Commission in March 2011. Gander Mountain media spokesman Jess Myers said he was unaware of any plans to construct a gun range at Farragut’s
store, 11501 Parkside Drive. “About two years ago we launched an initiative called Gander Mountain Academy and we have six of those,” Myers said. The six Gander Mountain Academy stores, which have shooting ranges, operate in Florida, Wisconsin, Minnesota, Texas and Kansas. “It’s a full training center in the store with a live fire shooting range, a virtual shooting range, classrooms and a full range of everything needed to make sure you’re properly and safely handling your firearm,” Myers said.

It’s been a steady rise from last place to state champion, with a perfect record, for Farragut High School hockey. “We’ve been building this team. When I came here [start of 2010-11 season], we were in last place,” said head coach Robert Despins, whose team capped a perfect 20-0-0 season with a Blue Division state championship Sunday, March 3, in Cool Sports Home of the Icearium. With 14 of the team’s 16 players actually attending FHS — compared to other local high schools, which have to combine forces to field a team — “it’s hard to find one high school in the hockey population that we have here that has got that much talent on it,” Despins said. However, with the injury bug hitting a number of key players during the season, “I never thought we’d be able to accomplish that,” Despins said about a perfect season and state title. “We just squeaked through some of those games.” Overall, “These kids just stepped up,” the coach added. “They were a very determined team.” Moreover, “Once we started the playAdmirals 8 offs we had our Knights 2 full roster available,” Despins said. “They were just unstoppable at that point. They got their confidence up. They never slowed down in the games at all.” As for Farragut possibly becoming the first ever Knoxville Amateur Hockey Association High School League team to finish with a perfect record, “No one remembers any other team going undefeated through the whole season and winning state,” Despins said. “That’s not easy to do.”
(Above) Farragut won Blue Division High School State Hockey Tournament Sunday afternoon, March 3, in Cool Sports Home of the Icearium, capping a perfect 20-0-0 season. Head coach Rob Despins, far left, and assistant coach Jeff Lindsay, far right, are pictured with team members, in no order, Alex Robinson, Kyle Lindsay, Austin Scheidt, Brandon Timmis, Gavin Gauld, Gage Despins, Thomas Detchemendy, Felix Bjurstrom, Tatum Magill, Ross Ludington, Dane Despins, Harley Gorlewski, Danny Petrow, Lucas Despins, Justin Richwine and Dakota Christian. (Below) Christian, KAHA High School League’s Top Goalie this season, fields his position during a game.
In looking for keys to success, Despins pointed to the team’s seven seniors, led by the coach’s triplets: forward Lucas Despins, KAHA League MVP and Top Playmaker, scored 22 goals and dished out 25 assists; Gage
Despins, League’s Top Forward, led KAHA with 31 goals; Dane Despins is a key defender. “Gage and Lucas, they really pump our team up,” said senior forward Thomas Detchemendy (17 goals, eight assists).

“They’re really good at making plays, scoring.” With the Despins family being from Canada, coach Despins said about his triplets, “Those guys have been playing hockey since they were five years old.” Lucas and Gage led the team’s “cycling” attack, which coach Despins said “is really tough to defend; any team really struggles to defend it. ... In high school you don’t typically see it.” Other key seniors are defender Austin Scheidt (11 assists) and forwards Danny Petrow (eight goals, 10 assists) and Alex Robinson (one goal, three assists). Junior Dakota Christian was named KAHA’s Top Goalie, leading the league in save percentage (90) and fewest goals allowed (15). Sophomore forward Felix Bjurstrom is among the underclassmen giving hope to the future, scoring 21 goals and dishing out 24 assists. “He’s played a lot of hockey; he’s originally from Sweden,” coach Despins said. Gavin Gauld, sophomore forward (eight goals, four assists), “is also Canadian,” the coach said. “He grew up about 60 miles away from my boys up in Canada. But we never knew each other back then. So we’ve had some kids where hockey runs in their blood. “The local kids, the Danny Petrows, the Thomas Detchemendys, these kids have been playing hockey here in the program for a long time, and they’re really good hockey players,” coach Despins added. Detchemendy said he was “surprised a lot” about Farragut’s success, especially in the state tourney. “When I heard that four teams from Nashville were coming, good teams, I was like, ‘Oh man, we’ve got some competition coming to town,’” he added.

However, “When we stepped out on that ice, we played our hearts out. We got two shutouts the first two games,” he added. About he and Petrow on the same line, Detchemendy added, “Danny, me and him really have good chemistry together, so me and him worked well on the same line throughout the year.” Scheidt, a former Admiral

Among other younger Ads, sophomore Brandon Timmis helped anchor the defense, while Kyle Lindsay, sophomore defender, Justin Richwine and Harley Gorlewski, sophomore forwards, and Ross Ludington, freshman forward, added vital depth.
“They just kind of understood the game better,” coach Despins said. “Positionally and everything. That kind of filled the holes on our team. They just instinctively know what to do when they get out there.” Gorlewski “can skate until he drops,” the coach added. Back-up goalkeeper Tatum Magill, a sophomore, was a firstyear Admiral. “She made some really good, key saves in the playoffs,” coach Despins said.

Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce
CHAMBER LIFE “T HE
MISSION STATEMENT IS TO STRENGTHEN AND SUPPORT OUR COMMUNITY BY PROMOTING BUSINESS GROWTH , EDUCATION AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT.”
Vol. 27, No.3
The red curtain is about to open on the biggest event of the year for the Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce – the annual Silent and Live Auction! If you have been to the Auction in the past, you are well aware of how much fun you will have. If you have never been, here is a bit of what to expect. As you enter you will be greeted with a flute of champagne and hors d’ouvres, compliments of Rothchild’s, and given your seating and your bid number for the Auction. You will receive a ballot to vote on the “Best Dressed Table” then start your fun-filled auction night.
A Publication of the Farragut West Knox Chamber of Commerce
The theme this year is, “Turning dreams into Reality.” While bidding on silent auction items take a journey by the dinner tables, decorated by Chamber members, to choose the best dressed table and to share the excitement, energy, inspiration and soul. A cash bar will be available. The silent action will end at 7:30 p.m. and dinner will be served, followed by the live auction. This year’s tabletop themes will represent ways to fulfill our lives: I just want to … dance! I just want to … sing! I just want to … travel! I just want to …bake! I just want to … be skinny!”
Plus more! Thank you to those members who have aready committed to sponsoring a table and for those who would like to do so, there is still time. At 8:00 p.m. the live auction of the tabletop decorations will begin, hosted by Lifetime member, friend and auctioneer Bear Stephenson from Stephenson Realty and Auction. Hold on to your hat because it goes fast and you will not want to lose your chance to win the bid! This extravaganza is the largest fund-raising event for the Chamber. A portion of the proceeds will go toward
the Continuing Education Grant Program and the Chamber will donate 10% of ticket sales to a charitable organization. A special thank you to members who have already agreed to help sponsor this year’s Auction . . . the Town of Farragut, Pinnicle Financial Center, Rothchild Catering & Conference Center and the farragutpress. Sponsorships are available in four categories: Presenting, Event, Community and Media. As sponsors are accepted, they See AUCTION on Page 2
WITH THE MAYOR On Tuesday, February 26, a crowd of over one hundred braved the rain to attend the Chamber’s first 2013 Breakfast Speaker Series featuring Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero. The breakfast was held at Fox Den Country Club. Chamber members and guests were interested to hear from Mayor Rogero about her first year as mayor, her work with area leaders and her community-oriented philosophy that “no city is an island.” Rogero emphasized, “We live in a global economy, so it is obvious that our future depends on the health of our regional economy. Working together regionally is the key to our success.” Rogero is Knoxville’s first female mayor and the first female mayor in any of the state’s big four cities. Her enthusiasm for her job as mayor was evident as she repeated, “I love my job! I have a great job!” and went on to say that she has a great city, terrific staff and enjoys a good working relationship with Farragut mayor Ralph McGill and Knox County mayor Tim Burchett. Rogero gave attendees a brief summary of the progress on goals from her 2011 campaign. Her present focus is on building stronger neighborhoods, having a better business climate, developing a vital downtown and having a greener more sustainable Knoxville. She was happy about the decrease in local partisan politics because it made the city’s decision-making process easier, benefiting everyone involved. Rogero was quick to quip, “... then again, there is not much partisanship in potholes, roads and greenways!” Mayor Rogero wound up her presentation with the progress being made downtown and extended an invitation to all to
New Member Orientation FWKCC President, Bettye Sisco, Knoxville Mayor, Madeline Rogero, Farragut Mayor, Ralph McGill and Town of Farragut Administrator, David Smoak pose for the camera after the morning breakfast at Fox Den. spend time there, because “A thriving downtown is a key to a strong city.” Continuing what was started under Mayor Haslam, Rogero and the City are strategically investing to give developers incentive to come downtown by investing in road and street improvements and parking. Volunteer Ministry Center was the Mayor’s chosen recipient for a portion of the breakfast proceeds. A check for $275 was presented to Mayor Rogero for the charity. She also signed a children’s book that was donated in her name to Primrose School in Farragut. The Chamber would like to thank Presenting Sponsor: Town of Farragut, Event Sponsor: NHC Place Assisted Living, Community Sponsor: Pinnacle Financial Partners, and Media Sponsor: farragutpress.
Spring 2013 New Member Orientation will be held at the Farragut Town Hall on Tuesday, March 19, 2013. If you have never been to a new member orientation or even if you’ve been a member for awhile, please join us to find out more about the many benefits available to you through the Farragut West Knox Chamber. From affordable advertising, free ribbon cutting or grand opening ceremonies, booking a networking, to event sponsorship opportunities, there is something for everyone to learn more about! The orientation will begin at 7:30 a.m. Coffee and donuts will be provided by Dunkin’ Donuts.

resident P Quotes ‘n Notes “Let there be peace on earth and let it begin with me.” – David Brinkley
by Bettye Sisco Being Successful Requires Work. There are many key components that can lead to your success in anything you do, be it business or just life. Here are five keys to get you started. Key #1: Be Original. The burden of originality is one that most people don’t want to accept. They’d rather sit in front of the TV and let that tell them what they’re supposed to like, what they’re supposed to buy and what they’re supposed to laugh at. How are you different? Your value is in your difference from others. To succeed you must understand your difference and you must find a way to offer that difference to the world. Key #2: Focused Branding. When thinking of coupons many think of “Low Prices.” When thinking of “Google,” one thinks of “Search Engine.” Every successful person or business can be summed up in a word or two because they’ve focused on their niche and they’ve successfully communicated that focus and its benefit to the world.What do people think of when they think of you? They should be able to “sum up” your benefit in a word or two. Key #3: Relationships. We’ve all heard the saying, “It’s not what you know, but who you know.” This saying certainly has some truth in it. The good news is: “If you don’t know someone, you can always get to know them.” Networking is a major key to success; who do you know? You are only a few humans away from anyone in the world; you know someone, who knows someone, who knows someone, who knows someone… Key #4: Have a Goal and a Plan. The most basic lesson is to have a specific goal with a deadline, and to have a step-by-step plan to achieve the goal. The person without a goal is like a car without an engine; it’s not going very far. Weekly and monthly goals guide you and motivate you. A plan is needed to give you the directions to get you to your goal. Otherwise, you may wander, you may even get lost, but you won’t make it to your destination. Key # 5: Remember the Main Thing. As the saying goes, the “main thing” is always to keep the “main thing,” the “main thing.” Determine the three or four things to do daily to guarantee your success, then duplicate these daily. If you can have a successful day, then you can have a successful year, you just have to be consistent.
