Peyton visits Fox Den for PeyBack ■


Though saying he has no immediate plans to move to Farragut or join Fox Den Country Club, Peyton Manning thinks enough of FDCC’s golf course and amenities to make it home, for a fifth straight year, for his annual fundraising partnership benefiting sick and injured children. “I haven’t quite gotten that far along,” said Manning, a future NFL Hall of Fame quarterback and former Tennessee Volunteers All-American, about any possible moving plans to Farragut. But this former Indianapolis Colt and current Denver Bronco AllPro has moved along the efforts of his charity, PeyBack Foundation, to partner for a second straight year with East Tennessee Children’s Hospital for 15th Annual Peyton Manning Golf Classic. With PeyBack having raised more than $2 million for East Tennessee charities in the previous

14 Classics according to Elizabeth Ellis, PeyBack executive director, Manning’s latest Farragut fundraiser came on a rainy Monday, June 17, at FDCC. “It’s great to be here,” Manning said during a 10minute press conference. “We’re raising money for two great causes: East Tennessee Children’s Hospital and our charity foundation called the PeyBack Foundation. … I always have a good feeling when I’m back in these parts. Great people, great memories, and I look forward to it every single year.” Manning said his specific goal of “support and give back” is simple. “Helping out kids, sick kids, injured kids through the hospital,” he said. “The kind of kids who don’t have life easy.” “I’ve been so proud that our foundation has supported the entire state of Tennessee throughout my time in professional sports,” Manning added. “But especially here in East Tennessee; Knoxville and this whole area. It’s made a big impact on me. “There are so many kids

in this area; we probably can’t touch them all but we’re going to keep trying.” About the 244 golf participants who each paid $350 to play an 18-hole 4player team swat (or best ball) in one of three flights, “These same folks play in the tournament every single year. … folks who care about kids, and it’s really been a fun association for me,” Manning said. Although not playing in the tournament, Manning paraded around the course to visit with participants. He also visited with participants on FDCC’s practice green following an event breakfast. Event was flighted based on team handicaps, with maximum individual handicap of 25. Morning and afternoon rounds were considered separate tournaments with awards for first-, second- and thirdplace in each flight. Also included was lunch and a 19th hole reception along with door prizes and other gifts.

BOMA ponders possible noise ordinance ■

Courtney Such/farragutpress

Daniel, Rachel and Lilly Bandy, 3, enjoy their morning at the annual Free Fishing Day at the Cove at Concord Park Saturday, June 8. Members of the Bandy family have not missed this event in 10 years.


Free Fishing Day was a catch for Farragut residents this past Saturday, June 8. The Cove at Concord Park was host to dozens of families and friends look-

ing for a fun way to spend their Saturday morning. “It’s an activity to get families out and kids to get introduced to fishing,” said Bart Carter, Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency regional fisheries manager of East Tennessee. “The outdoor activity

educates them on how to do that. A lot of environmental [tips] taught, because we try to instill into the kids and the parents the importance of having clean water, and fishing is just a product of See FISH on Page 2A


The Farragut Board of Mayor a n d Alderm e n discussed the possibility of adding a Gwozdz noise ordinance during a special workshop prior to its regularly scheduled meeting June 13. The Town currently does not have such an ordinance in place and has depended on the Knox County Sheriff’s Office to

regulate noise issues in the past. However, according to town of Farragut assistant administrator Gary Palmer, the sheriff’s office claims it does not have jurisdiction over certain noise complaints within the town of Farragut limits. If put into effect, the ordinance would follow Tennessee Code Annotated 6-2-201 “to provide a comprehensive framework for regulating noise by the adoption of standards that will eliminate or reduce unnecessary and excessive noise, which is physically harmful and otherwise detrimental to individuals and the community in the enjoyment of life, property and conduct of business.”

Palmer said there would be different constraints in place depending on whether the property is commercial or residential, overall use of the land, proximity to residential homes, time of day, intensity and if the sound was intermittent or continuous. When developing the proposed ordinance, Palmer looked at Knox County as well as other municipalities to see how noise ordinances are handled in those areas. “Knox County has two sources [of testing sound level],” Palmer said. “One is the standard reasonable man test; the other uses a decibel meter.” See NOISE on Page 2A

BOMA discusses McFee Park settlement


The town of Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen and Town attorney discussed a proposed settlement in regards to the McFee Park Splash Pad, during an executive session at the Thursday, June 13 BOMA meeting. Town attorney Tom Hale shared a written packet of communication between himself, on behalf of the town, and J. Ford Little, the legal representative for Christopoulos & Kennedy Construction, the company that constructed the splash pad. The initial amount of the contract for the project was $1,577,204,17, with $42,000.35 remaining to be paid. However, due to repairs that Town staff

having … a good habitat,” he added. Almost 8,300 pounds of catfish were added to 14 parks hosting a Free Fishing Day event throughout all of East Tennessee, including Morristown, Alcoa and Concord Park. In addition, fishing poles and unlimited bait were provided at no cost. Each person was also entered in a drawing for fishing gear, enough to make sure almost everyone walked away with something. “There are several facets to this,” Carter said. “First, the introduction of fishing to kids and adults does well in all age groups. It raises environmental awareness about water quality … how it relates to fishing activities and general living conditions here in East Tennessee,” Carter added. Free Fishing Day is celebrated by wildlife agencies all across the country, but Tennessee has designated June 8 for as long as Carter can remember. “A lot of recreation … boating, swimming and fishing is good to instill importance of keeping our waters clean so we can continue to enjoy activities out into the future,” Carter said.

argues are necessary, Hale requested Christopoulos & Kennedy provide a one-time lump sum of $12,000 to cover the cost of the repairs. These would include the following: • Re-grading the area around the splash pad and removing shrubs and trees • Constructing safety fencing to protect children during the repairs and putting erosion controls into place • Plumbing needs including reconnections to supply and return lines, installation of new floats to control water level, reinstalling the concrete collar at the top of the tank as required by the Health Department and raising the return pipes • Resodding of the site See SETTLEMENT on Page 3A

The invitation to freely fish also was extended for one week for children 15 years old and younger, running through Friday, June 14. The Bandy family is an example of why the TWRA continues to host this day each year. “We’ve been here every year for about ten years,” said Daniel Bandy. “We catch plenty of fish and the kids have a great time. We’ve caught 16 so far,” Bandy added. It was only 8:30 a.m., and his daughter, Lilly, felt another tug on her fishing pole. Both Tennessee residents and non-residents were granted permission to fish without a license throughout the state of Tennessee with the hopes of drawing families to spending more time together this summer. “It’s a good promotion for the future of our kids,” said TWRA employee Darrell Hill, who has worked the event for the past eight years. “It’s good to keep kids involved in a good sport like this,” Hill added. If you missed the event this year, do not worry. Free Fishing Day always is celebrated at the Cove at Concord Park the second Saturday of June.


Noise From page 1A

• Police Reports will return next week.

Palmer suggested that BOMA consider using only the reasonable man test, which would require town of Farragut staff to audibly decide when a sound is breaking the threshold for excessive noise. One problem that Palmer and BOMA foresee is the ability to enforce such an ordinance. “Town staff leave at 5 p.m.; after 5 p.m. we wouldn’t be able to enforce it,” Palmer said. “Also, this would fall under code officials, but they are not trained to handle this type of violation.” The specific incident that spurred the conversation about

the possible ordinance is in regards to a fan on the Fox Den Country Club golf course. Several residents have complained that a large industrial fan used to cool the playing area on the course emits an inordinate amount of sound. During the subsequent BOMA meeting, Fox Den resident Lucy Gwozdz, 12252 Oakmont Circle, spoke out in favor of such an ordinance. “An ordinance would provide us with the same peace as that provided by Knox County,” Gwozdz said.

She claims there is a discrepancy between the amount of noise the fan emits and that which is listed in the operational manual of the fan, 60 decibels, and what residents have measured with a commercial decibel reader — 90 decibels within their property line. She said she has filed complaints with country club management; however, no agreement has been reached. In order for the ordinance to be put into effect, it would have to be brought forward during a future BOMA meeting and pass two readings.

Farragut experiences building upswing ■


With three subdivisions currently under development or extensive expansion within town of Farragut limits, building permit activity continues to increase as judged by a three-andone-half-year trend. According to statistics provided by Town’s Community Development department, total building permits issued in calendar year 2010 was 928, or 77.33 per month. That rose, in 2011, to 1,098, or 91.50 per month. Still higher was 2012 at 1,117, or slightly more than 93 monthly. During the first five months of calendar year 2013, building permits issued were 488, or 97.60 per month. For fiscal year 2012-13 (through May), new residential development in Farragut was 87 residential units valued at $32,256,642. Thirteen new residential units valued at $5,992,531 were permitted in March 2013. “New residential is more in the west, southwest, because that’s the undeveloped part of the Town,” said Mark Shipley, Community Development assistant director. “You’re not going to see as much in the east because it’s already largely built out. Older subdivisions largely

built out.” New commercial development during that same time frame was $12,009,178, and included zero activity in October 2012 and March 2013. Highest month for commercial activity was 6,514,416 in September 2012. As for subdivisions, Split Rail Farm off Everett Road about one mile north from Kingston Pike (formerly know as Everett Hills and Karastone Farm) “is proceeding; they’re working on cleaning up and getting their construction plans, their preliminary plat, finalized,” Shipley said. “Once they get that taken care of, they’ll be able to get a grading permit to start finishing up the roads that are required and some of the walking trails that need to be finished.” Also, “You’ve got the Cottages at Pryse Farm reactivated there on McFee [Road],” Shipley added. “They’re getting building permits right now. … They didn’t get completely finished before the financial issue with the previous owner. They’re finishing those and the clubhouse.” “The Villas at Anchor Park … that McBride Company is building. They’re putting in the road right now,” Shipley said. “They submitted the final plat. It’s on the agenda for the Planning Commission’s consideration this month.”

• Inspecting and possibly repairing any damaged portions of the sidewalk • Relocating and reinstalling the strainer baskets In addition to the $12,000 sum, Hale also requested funds to cover the cost of following items, which total $2,956.80: • Metal winter covers for the splash pad • Installation of new emergency sensors, relays and contactors for exhaust and louvers in restrooms and new contactors for the splash pad • Reinstallation of the spring rider that broke off the concrete base

• A ladder fabricated to access the tank According to Hale’s letter, “the town of Farragut proposes to settle the entire matter by retaining $15,000 of the remaining $42,000 unpaid under the contract, and submit a check to C&K for $27,000, and exchanging mutual releases.” Under this agreement neither side would be admitting fault, simply agreeing on terms to settle the matter. Following the BOMA and attorney’s discussion, the Board voted in favor of approving and signing the settlement.

• Yes, I’m calling about the issue with the Farragut church blocking traffic on Kingston Pike. They’ve been doing that, I know, on Sunday. But now it appears that they’re doing it during the week. And today, when I tried to get into my subdivision, it was blocked and there were about a hundred cars lined up coming east. I know that someone called in about that last week. And I’m wondering why the city would let them do this? I would like to hear an answer from somebody, anybody, about why they’re allowed to do that. If they’re going to hire police officers then they need to post those at the subdivisions that are between them and Campbell Station [Road], so that we can get in and out of our subdivisions. Thank you. • I would like to comment on the person who wrote in about the graduates from the high schools and colleges not writing thank you notes. My 2013 graduate received many very generous

gifts, and a hand-written note was sent to every one of the people who sent it to her. I also received hand-written notes from every student I sent a gift to. Many of our students are writing thank you notes and they should be acknowledged for that. I also would like to comment that I did have a flag in my yard this year [commemorating] Veterans Day, Memorial Day and Fourth of July. Maybe that person needs to drive around a little bit more. Thank you. • Our daughter was in a car accident on Union and Smith Road. Both cars were totaled and our pregnant daughter had some injuries. It took 2.5 hours for police to respond yet there are three patrol cars directing traffic for the church. I don't get it? Do you stop being a protector of the public when you are directing traffic? Editor’s Note: Patrol officers working churches are usually off-duty and are being paid by the church. • We are currently in the

process of starting a year-round Knoxville travel water polo team for high-school athletes. As more and more players sign on and sponsors continue to donate to the cause, I have firm belief that this sport is about to explode in the state of Tennessee. I think it's of utmost importance to keep everything rolling when it comes to marketing considering we are looking to get the sport played at Farragut High School this coming spring. • Recent nuclear threats made by North Korea — followed by terrorism in Boston — underscore the need for a strong defense. If we let the national debt get to the point where all revenue is consumed by interest payments and entitlements, we will be at the mercy of such nations as North Korea and Iran, (and maybe eventually China, who may already be hacking into our defense technology.) We will also be more vulnerable to terrorists getting nukes, as we would no longer have the deterrent of being able to trace such

weapons to their country of origin. We must write to our elected officials about all this. We should urge them to stop deficit spending, and adopt budgets that will pay down the national debt and looming entitlement shortages. It would help if we sell rainforest owners the expertise for harvesting the rainforests much more profitably and sustainably (perhaps for a lease or share, at least for some term.) • Editorial freedom is a wonderful concept, but it does come with its responsibilities.

treated like a professional, and was able to experience what it was like as a professional.” With KSO Chamber and FHS Orchestra having only one other combined performance (2009), “Being able to sit next to professionals and get tips from them about how we play, how to improve ourselves, was really an awesome experience,” she added. Junior Emma Walker, viola, said, “I really loved it. It was really fun. To come in and sit next to them and play with them, and learn from them, too. “And I really loved sitting on stage while they played their piece,” Walker added. “That was just amazing from me. “Just watching them and [seeing] how much passion they have for what they do, I kind of realized how much I really love it. “I would like to keep playing … I think it would be fun to play professionally.” Junior Katherine Coppock, second violin, said, “It was just really exciting to be working with professionals.

After recalling a fond musical learning experience of his youth, Maestro Lucas Richman premiered his arrangement of a special “choral piece” in Farragut High School’s Vickie B. Wells Auditorium. “When I was a young violinist, one of the things that I did, I spent three summers at Tanglewood, which is the summer home of Boston Symphony Orchestra,” said Richman, conductor of Knoxville Symphony Orchestra and a 2011 Grammy Award winner Looking to give back as a mentor, Richman conducted a joint Side-by-Side strings performance of 20-member KSO Chamber Orchestra and 25member FHS Orchestra Thursday night, April 4. Senior Rachel Graves, FHS Orchestra concertmaster (first violin), said her experience with Richman and KSO Chamber Orchestra, which included two rehearsals, “Was awesome because I got to be


been able to play on a level like that before.” Addressing FHS parents and teachers, Richman said, “The support that you’ve given to these young people … this place, this very night, is huge. So I thank you for all the time that you’ve put in. “It’s really a wonderful opportunity for the student musicians to play at the same time as the KSO Players, but it’s also a cool thing to sit back and watch and be right there in the moment,” he added. “You see the notes fly by and you say, ‘Oh my gosh, I could do that one day.’” As for the music, “This is the premier of my version of this choral piece for strings,” Richman said introducing “Alleluia,” one of 12 pieces performed that also included “Eine Kleine Nachtmusik/Romance” by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart. “One of the traditions of the opening ceremonies of Tanglewood was, we would perform a local, choral piece called ‘Alleluia’ by Randall Thompson,” Richman added.

Biggs lays out KCSO issues at Rotary ■


With around 6.5 million miles annually to prove it, Knox County Sheriff's Office has special responsibilities and challenges. That’s according to Chief Deputy Eddie Biggs, who shared KCSO’s special role in Knox

County mental health and Knox courts while explaining high expenses in processing some key evidence among his comprehensive look at KCSO. This came as featured speaker during The Rotary Club of Farragut’s weekly Wednesday meeting May 7 in Fox Den Country Club. Incarcerating “anywhere from

850 to over a thousand a day,” Biggs added that KCSO “is the largest mental health institute in East Tennessee. We've taken on that task because nobody else can or will. “Fortunately, they’ve put a million dollars in the budget this time for a safety center that will help relieve some of that,” added

Biggs, chief deputy since November 2011 after 31 years with Knoxville Police Department. Biggs also spent seven years as an investigator with Pryor Flynn Priest & Harber law firm in Knoxville. As for crime statistics, “Knox County averages around eight homicides a year,” Biggs said.

“The city of Knoxville averages about 23-and-a-half. “For a community of this size, that's way, way down. It’s very low. I think that’s attributed to the law enforcement efforts of both organizations.” Concerning DNA “hair and folSee BIGGS on Page 7A

Bermuda greens coming to Willow Creek

Alan Sloan/

Craig Roach in front of Willow Creek Golf Club practice green, which received work as a trial run in the club’s bentgrass-toBermuda renovation of all course putting surfaces.


For your silver anniversary, how about going to Bermuda. For Willow Creek Golf Club’s 25year-old course, owner John Testerman Sr. and club management decided to bring Bermuda to Farragut. In a move rare among Knox County and East Tennessee courses that will set Willow Creek apart, it’s bentgrass greens are being converted into Champion

Ultra Dwarf Bermuda and ready for play by early August. Willow Creek’s 25-year-old bentgrass greens were showing wear despite top-notch maintenance. “Last summer, we had some problems with our greens getting thin,” said Bill Roach, WCGC general manager. The new Bermuda “will be just a better putting surface during the heavy playing months of summer in June, July and August … it’s going to be healthier,” Roach said. “Bentgrass is a cool season

grass. During the summer with the humidity and the moisture and heat, it doesn’t survive as well,” he added. Moreover, Bermuda “will be just as good a putting surface during the winter as bentgrass would be,” Roach said. With total cost estimated between $300,000 and $500,000, which factors anticipated loss of revenue during the roughly sixweek transition period, Roach See WILLOW on Page 9A

licle” testing, “It has to go to a private lab or to the FBI,” Biggs said, adding the cost can range “in the ballpark between $6,000 to $20,000 each,” creating a small buzz in the RCF audience. Because of recent court rulings, Biggs said KCSO and other law enforcement no longer can do immediate “blood draws on DUI offenders ... without a search warrant,” which makes proving intoxication harder because many times “alcohol will leave the body” before a warrant can be obtained and executed. Among its multiple duties, KCSO “also takes care of all the courts,” Biggs said about “64 court officers.” Also unlike KPD, "If somebody has to be set out of their home, need to confiscate their home or whatever, we do that,” Biggs added. “We do that in city [of Knoxville] and the county.” Biggs, 66, said he’s one of “a little over 1,100” KCSO employees. officers or detectives.”

Also a help, “Mike Singletary’s in-laws attend church here,” said Knudsen, who did not disclose their names. “They asked [Singletary] if he’d be willing to come. There were no questions asked. He was a big supporter.” “This is by far the biggest event that has ever helped our group,” Knudsen added. “It’s a day program that meets Tuesdays, Wednesdays and Thursdays” whose community and in-church work gives 22 adults “a sense of accomplishment.” Singletary’s post-football role as “a motivational Christian speaker,” according to Knudsen, specifically will help raise funds for Helping Hands’ camping excursion in Dayton July 21-25. Needing to raise “$400 per person,” four FBC staff members plus 10 special needs adults, Knudsen said the fundraising goal is “at least $10,000. … We’re praying that we can get a thousand people here.” Tickets are $10 apiece. Knu-

dsen requests that tickets should be obtained prior to the event by calling FBC receptionist Julie Arnold at 865-966-9791, or dropping by the church, 11704 Kingston Pike “and entering through the rotunda doors at the west side of the building.” A handful of “at the door” tickets will be available June 22.

To sponsor a camper, call Arnold at 865-966-9791. Joni and Friends Camp in Dayton “gives those with special needs the opportunity to do things they are told in life that they will never do. For example, having someone in a wheelchair water-ski.

Gail Collins Helping Farragut grow, at Regions, for 30-plus years


Four company mergers within 30 years, one Gail Collins. From newborns turned new homebuyers, from new parents t u r n e d grandparents, Collins has dealt with first-, second- and third-generation cusCollins tomers at Regions Bank for more than three decades. Vice president and manager of Farragut branch, 11513 Kingston Pike — manager for more than 30 years — Collins has helped facilitate town of Farragut’s enormous growth dating back to some slow times at Park National Bank in the early- and mid-1980s. Pointing to what is now Community South on the corner of Kingston Pike and Jamestowne Boulevard, “We started in that building there,” Collins said about her first bank job, coming to Farragut from Atlanta with husband, Tony, in July 1982. “We were Park National Bank then. Then it was First American, then AmSouth, then Regions.”

“My tellers were bored for about five years because people didn’t think we were a bank,” Collins added, pointing specifically to poor signage contributing to Park National’s slow growth in the early-to-mid 1980s. However, “Because I’ve been here so long, my customers are like family now, one generation to another,” Collins said. “I’ve seen them through marriages and births and grandchildren. In sickness and in death, divorce. “It’s been a journey, but I enjoy it.” Looking back in detail, “I think part of my success is demonstrating I care,” Collins said. “When the layoffs happened in 2007, 2008, they got caught up. I’ve had customers retired but had to go back to work because they lost their retirement. They were in the stock market, not diversified enough. “It’s very emotional because I care about people,” she added. “We try to give them good counseling on banking and how to make wise decisions. When you see some folks destroyed, whether it was in their control or not, it affects you a lot.” After one year of management training upon arriving in Farragut, “I went from back office to front office and dealing with people, and I like that a lot better than doing back-office

work, because I love the customers’ contact,” Collins said about working at the Farragut branch. Overseeing nine employees, “I do a good job building a team,” Collins said. “They know I care about them, want them to be successful.” Also, “No two days are the same” at Farragut Regions, Collins said about another positive aspect of her job. “That’s part of what I like, too. It can be challenging at times because you’re managing people.”

Collins landed in Farragut because Tony, then a salesman, was transferred to Knox County from Atlanta. He later became a minister. “I was a newlywed coming here … to me it was very depressing,” said Collins, a University of Georgia graduate with a bachelor’s degree in psychology. “I worked downtown for one year in the management training program. And the city [Knoxville] was pretty gray, I thought.” However, “After three years of living here, I realized the quality

of life is just wonderful to raise a family,” said Collins, who has two grown daughters. “We liked the Farragut schools.” “There’s no way I’d trade this area for the hustle-and-bustle of the big city.” That’s despite lucrative offers with more pay from “other financial institutions” and “investment brokerage firms,” while also turning down offers to “move up” within Regions’ corporate ladder.

Have you hugged your dentist lately? I don’t know about you, but I don’t like to go to the dentist. Once I make an appointment and get it on my calendar, it sticks out like a countdown to a jury verdict. Making the appointment to the chair and getting in the chair are not high on my make it fun list, but in the spirit of my motto, Make it fun and it will get done! I try to stay cheerful through t h e process, twice a year. After a Pam r e c e n t Young appointMake it ment, I got Fun! an email from my dentist with a questionnaire attached. I’d gone in to get my teeth cleaned and it seems they wanted to know how they had done. I answered the various questions with a rating system that gave me a range of choices from excellent to lousy and I rated my dentist and his staff in the excellent range. However, I did have a problem with the email itself. The cover note said, “Hello, we had Pam in our office for a check-up and we’d like to know how we did.” Who were they writing too? My mom? The health advisor at the old age home? It made me mad. I don’t like people who speak in the first person and this almost made me want to write, “Pam thinks you did just fine.” At the end of the questionnaire there was a place for me to expand my thoughts, something every writer loves to do. I took the opportunity to expound on an issue I had with the receptionist of another dentist in my past. She was way too friendly! When you’re going to the dentist to have a tooth pulled or a root canal, you don’t need to be greeted by a perky, cheerleader type like your checking into some resort on vacation. “Hi there doll, how are you today?” “Just peachy.” I was there to get a root canal.” “GREAT. What’s your name?” “Pam Young.” “Okay, GREAT Pam! Doctor will see you in just a few minutes. Like your shoes!” I think it’s tricky being a dental receptionist. She shouldn’t be too friendly or too gloomy. She needs to be somewhere in the middle, between welcoming a tourist to Disneyland and welcoming a griever to a funeral home. I read some time ago that dentists have the highest suicide rate of any profession. Think about it, they spend most of their time staring into someone's mouth, with little else to do in their job. Despite earning a lot of money, this must not make up for the little job satisfaction. It made me stop and think

about my dentist, bless his heart. It struck me that I need to be receptionist friendly and kinder than I’ve been to him in the past. I’m really glad there is someone who is willing to look into my mouth and get spit all over him. The last time I went in, there was a photo of my mouth up on the computer screen by the chair I was put in. It grossed me out! How would you like to spend most of your days pushing a big tongue out of the way, drilling and chiseling out decay, rinsing out bloody mouths and sucking it up with a hose? When was the last time you hugged your dentist or just thanked him/her for what he/she does for you? And maybe, if your dentist has a receptionist that is too friendly, you could tell her to turn that charm on her boss. God knows he could use it.

said course superintendent Paul Hood and his crew has been prepping all 18 greens and practice areas despite being open for play, since February 2013. Play will continue at WCGC through the entire process, with temporary greens being used when the regular greens are shut down starting Monday, June 24.

Greens fees are reduced from $52 to $20 during this transition. “Weekends will be the same rate,” Roach said. Three days of more intense prepping work, starting June 24, precedes a Bermuda “sprigging” process, as performed by Champion Turf Farms of Bay City, Texas, Thursday, June 27. Cost includes “about $15,000 into a new irrigation system over the winter for all of greens,”

Roach said. “And for the winter you’ve got to cover the greens [in evening and night], and we’ve spent upwards of $25,000 to buy the covers.” Although the Bermuda greens will turn brown in winter, Roach said his crew would paint the greens and emphasized they would play the same as in warm months. “I actually visited a couple of golf courses this winter, and they were great,” he said.

Split Rail to have big home sites ■


Split Rail Farm, to be located off Everett Road in Farragut, will offer larger home sites, said Matthew Varney, of Farmstead Developments LLC. “Our concept from the beginning was to provide larger home sites like half an acre in size that would allow buyers to build the type of home they wanted to build,” Varney said. “And when I say that, what that means is that most people don’t prefer two-story and threestory homes,” he said. “They like to have something more on one level with maybe an upper floor with some bedrooms, and that’s what we saw as the market opportunity.” Along with Daniel Burton, Varney is developing Split Rail Farm, which he refers to as a “residential farmstead.” Varney sees the place serving as a home to an eclectic mix of people. “What we envision for Split Rail Farm is there are going to be some people who are going to

move into the neighborhood and build a 5,500-square foot home and have children, and there will also be buyers that will be wanting to downsize and build a cot-

tage home and still want to have a nice-sized yard,” Varney said. There are 48 lots total, he said, and he already has three reservations for home sites for when it

is possible to buy. “We don’t have a lot of inventory, but what we do have is qualiSee FARM on Page 2B

ENT and Allergy expected to move in November

Robby O’Daniel/farragutpress

Dr. Clyde Mathison stands inside Farragut ENT and Allergy at its current location at 11201 West Point Drive, Suite 103.


The goal date for Farragut ENT and Allergy to move to its new location near the old Food City along Kingston Pike is November. The move from its current location at 11201 West Point Drive, Suite 103, to the new one has to do with a need for more space. “We’re expanding, bringing in more doctors and need more physical space,” said Robin Burnette, practice manager for Farragut ENT and Allergy. Farragut is the business’ main office, but there also are locations at Dowell Springs, South Knoxville, Sevierville and Sweetwater. “We’re a physicians office,” See ALLERGY on Page 2B

she said. “We’re ear, nose and throat and allergy, and we also do hearing aids.” At the new building, Farragut ENT and Allergy will have six to eight exam rooms, she said. “So that way, we can see more patients,” she said. “... We’ll have more designated areas for the hearing center or the hearing portion, and we’ll have more room for our allergy department because we have so many allergy patients. But we will also have an expansion of being able to have two procedure rooms in the office.” Staff for the business include Drs. William Merwin, Leonard Brown and Clyde Mathison; nurse practitioner Lonny Huston; and audiologists Karen Rutherford and Lee Cottrell, she said. “We do adult and pediatric services for allergy, sinus treatment, the balloon sinuplasty,” she said. “We do balance disorders, cochlear implants, hearing aids.” She said allergies are more prevalent in the spring and the

the overall neighborhood community concept.” Varney was born in California, but his family moved to Farragut when he was 3 years old, Varney said. He graduated from Farragut High School in 1991. Varney earned bachelor’s degrees in economics and marfall. “We offer allergy testing and shots to go along with, usually if you have chronic sinus infections and that, they’re very much related,” she said. The office sees adults and children that have ear infections, Burnette said. “There are general ear surgeries that people have to have done when they get a perforated eardrum, whether it’s something medical that happens to them or sometimes it’s trauma,” she said. The office offers balloon sinuplasty for “people that have chronic sinuses, some that have chronic allergies and that continue to have chronic sinus infections, headaches and typically if there’s disease shown on a CAT scan,” Burnette said. “For the throat ... we offer someone if they have chronic hoarseness or various things that they need to have checked out, you can do a scope in the office,” she said. “Some need to be done in the operating room.”

keting from The University of Tennessee, he said. “Farragut’s a great community,” he said. “The people out there value quality homes, nice yards, landscaping, greenspaces, and I said one of the things that’s missing out here is larger home sites.” He described Split Rail Farm

as representing a “larger property at an attractive price point in a great location.” “I plan to build my own personal home at Split Rail Farm, and there’s not a stronger sign of confidence as a developer in your own project,” he said.

Multi-coach talent with Rookies team ■

Alan Sloan/farragutpress

Derek Wright, Rookies second baseman, is unable to record an out at second as Good Squad base runner Trey Crabtree reaches safely. Goon Squad went on to win this Town Men’s Softball League Spring Tournament semifinal showdown, and finish No. 2 overall, Monday evening, June 10, at Mayor Bob Leonard Park’s Lower Field.


The green-clad softball team calling itself “Rookies” is a bit misleading because its collection of talent, based out of West Park Baptist Church, has been around for several years in town of Farragut Men’s Softball League. Rookies also includes coaching talent from three successful Farragut-area high school programs. “This team has been together about eight years,” said second baseman Derek Wright, FHS alumnus and former Admirals boys soccer assistant coach who helped head coach Wallie Culbreth win three of his four Class AAA state titles between 2003 and 2007. Wright joins first baseman Justin Underwood, head coach of Bearden High School girls varsity basketball Rookies 14 team, and outfielder Chris Foster, Webb School of Knoxville junior varsity baseball Meksiko 4 coach and a social studies teacher at FHS. This threesome helped the No. 3 East Division seeded Rookies defeat Meksiko 14-4 in six innings during Spring League tournament quarterfinal action Monday evening, June 10, at Mayor Bob Leonard Park’s Lower Field. In first round play June 3, Rookies defeated First Baptist Concord. “A lot of us guys go to church together over at West Park Baptist,” said Underwood, who led his BHS girls to the program’s first Class AAA State Tournament trip since the early 1980s. “It’s been five years now,” catcher Mike Dotson said about his time See ROOKIES on page 5B

A kill by Rob Records was the championship-winning point, as Balls Deep rallied from an early

four-point deficit. “We went undefeated for David,” Merrill reiterated. Meanwhile, Intermediate 4’s B tourney champ, Sandstorm, defeated runner-up Block You Like a Hurricane 30-21. Block You Like a Hurricane, regular season champ, is led by Steve Carlson who joins “Sandstorm” during six-player league games to form Dirty 1/2 Dozen, a past Town Intermediate League championship team.

0 in tourney), defeated Fantastic Four in opening round and Believe the Hype in semifinals. Other members of this fiveplayer team who contributed big during tourney action were Steve Kovach and Adam McCue. Balls Deep formed its first team last spring, a six-player Town Competitive League team under the name “Bunch of Freakin’ Head Cases.” During 2013 Spring season, BFHC won its regular season title before finishing second in tourney play. “This is the first time we’ve played together as fours,” Kaminsky said. “We had a

younger gentleman, Andrew Self … played with us” most of the season. Also a team member for BFHC is Paige Paine. All Balls Deep players said they’d be back for Town’s Fall Competitive League six-player season as BFHC. “How many teams have we had try to pull individuals of us off this team and make new teams?” Merrill asked. “And we still stick together and stay together.” Sandstorm came up huge after playing it its first-ever 4’s league season, going a perfect 3-0 in 4B’s tourney play after finishing second in regular season. About Sandstorm/Dirty 1/2 Dozen’s history, Rudolph, team captain, said he and Palma “have

been playing together for five years, probably; Loran and I for two or three years.” Dziurzynski, the tallest at 6foot-3, “is new to the crew ... our ace in the hole,” Rudolph said. “I was really desperate, I just wanted to play,” Dziurzynski said with laughter all around. As for why she enjoys 4’s volleyball, Palma said, “We learn who’s going to get what and we learn how to cover each other. That’s the fun part for me, is just meshing with everybody else.” Huff said, “I just love playing with these guys. We started playing Open play on Friday nights.” Other Dirty 1/2 Dozen team members are Stephanie Schiding and Nanny Martin.

and Curtis Dunn. Typical of Town league mentality is the lighter side, which adds to the fun. Overall, “It’s really just about having a good time,” Wright said. In a poor attempt to butter up Raby while pretending not to know he was walking up to a

team huddle, Wright said, “We’ve got a great leader, and we just do whatever he wants us to do. “He’s the Bobby Cox of rec league softball, Watt Road,” added Foster, a former BHS teacher whose connection to Rookies began through Underwood.

Crye-Leike, REALTORS opens second Knoxville Branch Office After opening its first branch office in Knoxville in 2011, CryeLeike, REALTORS is planning to cut the ribbon on its second branch office in the market. Crye-Leike’s new Knoxville office recently opened its doors for business in North Knoxville and is located at 7563 Barnett Way in Powell, Tennessee. The company’s West Knoxville office has been helping real estate buyers and sellers for the last two years located at 731 Campbell Station Road in

Knoxville. The office of Realtors at CryeLeike’s North Knoxville branch will assist real estate buyers and sellers in Knox, Anderson and all surrounding counties. The office specializes in all types of residential real estate sales, and Crye-Leike’s new regional property management division will be housed in the new office. Crye-Leike’s North Knoxville office will be led by Managing Broker Diana Traylor who has been a top producing

Realtor in Knoxville and Chattanooga since 2001. Crye-Leike is excited to be expanding in the Knoxville housing market with the opening of its second office and plans to open more offices in the area hopefully by the end of this year.

Crye-Leike welcomes Realtor Deborah Krajnc For many years, Knoxville Realtor Deborah Krajnc has enjoyed being a real estate investor. She and her husband Mike purchase houses that need a makeover and turn them into beautiful places to call home. Rehabbing Krajnc and remodeling homes inspired Deborah to earn her real estate license and help even more people find that perfect house to call home. Since 2010, she has enjoyed helping many home buyers and sellers with all of their real estate needs. In order to better her business and better serve her clients, Deborah recently joined CryeLeike’s West Knoxville branch office and hopes to help many more people become happy home buyers and sellers. “For 3 years, I have been thrilled with me decision to start a career as a Realtor,” said Deborah. “I am loving the freedom, excitement, and sense of satisfaction real estate gives me. Whether I’m in the hunt for a house to purchase to makeover or searching for one of my home buyers or whether I’m helping a home seller get their house market ready, I feel like I’m in the zone doing what I’m meant to do.” Deborah is a licensed Realtor in Tennessee assisting buyers and sellers in and around the

Knoxville area primarily in Knox, Blount, Sevier and Anderson counties. She specializes in working with residential real estate sales, investment properties and firsttime homebuyers and home staging. Deborah is a member of the National Association of Realtors and the local and national Real Estate Investors Group. “It’s a thrill to walk into an ugly house and be able to see the vision of what it can be and go through the renovation process to make it beautiful,” said Deborah. “As a real estate investor and home rehabber, I’m able to walk through any house and advise potential sellers on home staging, affordable renovation tips and resources that will get the home market ready for the quickest possible sale for the most money possible.” Deborah currently lives in Seymour, Tennessee but has also enjoyed living in many other places including Western NY, New Jersey, Connecticut, Atlanta, and Ontario Canada. Prior to her career in real

estate, Deborah managed her own business as a certified life coach, and she also served as a corporate trainer. “I have always been really good at networking, coaching people towards their goals and helping them figure out what is important to them,” said Deborah. “As a life coach and corporate trainer, I learned to be very flexible working with all different types of personality styles. All of these skills help me when discussing with home buyers and sellers what their goals and expectations are. I find it easy to quickly understand what my real estate clients want and need which helps me help sellers get their homes sold faster and helps me assist buyers in narrowing down which home choices will suit them best.” For all of your real estate needs, contact Crye-Leike Realtor Deborah Krajnc by phone at (865) 318-2500 or e-mail him at Find Deborah on the web at
