Taste of Farragut keeps growing ■


The 5th Annual Taste of Farragut, presented by TDS Telecom, provided food, drink and the opportunity for community socializing amid perfect weather Friday, Sept. 27. More than 30 vendors offered samples of food and drink, which attendees could try, at the event, which took place in the old Kroger parking lot off Kingston

Pike across from Farragut High School. David Purvis, Farragut Business Alliance treasurer, spoke on the variety of vendors. “We’ve got a greater variety this year because there was a big effort to try to get more engagement from some of the restaurants, and they’re starting to understand the value of participating in an event like this and the quality of the event,” Purvis said. “Everybody seems really

pleased and very tickled with the food and the offerings, so we’re just fortunate to have some of the restaurants that we have in Farragut.” Allison Sousa, executive director of the Farragut Business Alliance, said it was a great turnout. “We do not have final numbers [attendance and money] yet because we have not received final credit card figures [usually takes 2-3 business days to

process],” Sousa said via e-mail Monday, Sept. 30. “Based on bracelets used and ticket books distributed, we estimate attendance at roughly 1,200-1,300 people.” She said there were 42 booths for food and drink at the event, though some vendors used multiple booths. “Perfect weather, fabulous vendors, the vendors really just stepped it up this year, and they’re just not only providing

food but really well-presented food,” Sousa said at the event. The food presented at the event represented a wide variety. “We’ve got everything from handmade pasta to gourmet food to sandwiches and pizza,” she said. “We’ve got wings. We’ve got dude food. We’ve got chick food. We’ve got international. ... Just you name it, it’s here.” Cara Plummer mentioned See TASTE on Page 2A

Farragut turns out for Picnic on Pike

While visiting The Cove at Concord Park off Northshore Drive in Knox County, the Rev. Lawrence and Ruth Keesor paused as they walked around the waterway when the Rev. Keesor decided to put some money in a feeder for the ducks and geese. As he put the money in the feed dispenser a large white duck and goose patiently stood next to him with their heads raised high prepared for their treat. It so happened that Ruth Keesor was watching with a camera and took this snapshot. When the Farragut Commons couple returned home they were amazed at the expressions and response of the goose and the duck.


A “great event” is how members of the Farragut community described the fourth annual Picnic on the Pike, which took place Sunday afternoon, Sept. 29, on the farragutpress lawn off Kingston Pike. “It’s great, it’s wonderful and it’s free. You can’t beat that,” said Lisa Haddad of Farragut. Live music from local bands, The Chillbillies and BackTalk, drew locals and some out-oftowners to Sunday’s Picnic, which began with the celebration of the Town’s 30th anniversary in 2010. Chelsey Riemann, public relations coordinator for the town of Farragut, coordinating sponsor of Picnic on the Pike, estimated there were about 300 to 400 people who attended the event throughout the day. Riemann said she thought the event was a success. She said the Town’s staff only heard positive feedback from the people who attended and felt everyone enjoyed a nice afternoon out-

doors, listening to some great music. People were encouraged to bring chairs and their lunch to the event, which was also sponsored by farragutpress and Doug and Brenda Horne. Additionally, those who attended could purchase lunch items from Savory and Sweet food truck. “It’s going great,” Riemann said Sunday. “We’re thrilled about the crowd. The bands are wonderful, and we couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather.” “It’s a great event,” Town administrator David Smoak said. “We have a great time. Great music and hanging out, talking to folks, is always a great time.” “I love it,” said Lisa McMahan of Farragut. She brought her Pekinese, Chesney. “We come every year, and it’s an event I can bring him. I love animal-friendly events.” “This is really nice,” said Lora Mollen of Greenback. “This is the first time we’ve been to it.” “We were going to the grocery store, but we came here,” See PICNIC on Page 5A

Wade to keynote Judicial Update luncheon Residents turn out to


Tennessee Supreme Court Chief Justice Gary Wade will keynote Farragut Business Alliance/town of Farragut Tennessee Judicial Update community forum luncheon at noon, Thursday, Oct. 10, at Fox Den Country Club. “[Wade] is going to give a judicial update for the state of Tennessee as well as speak about community involvement,” David Purvis, FBA treasurer and former FBA president, said. “He’s going to give us like a State of the Union of the judicial system in Tennessee,” Purvis added. “He’ll speak to the key issues that are affecting the

state of the judicial system in Tennessee.” One topic he will speak on is community involvement’s impact, said Allison Sousa, FBA executive director. “As co-founder and chairman emeritus of Friends of the Great Smoky Mountains National Park, he will be sharing the community process undertaken to get it started and the ongoing impact and legacy of this far-reaching organization,” Sousa said via email. Sousa added, “We were fortunate that David Purvis was a member of the Leadership Knoxville class last year and during the program, met some folks who have really made a difference in East Tennessee. Chief Justice

Wade was one of the guests that spoke to community involvement in a way that really resonated with David, in that he felt it paralleled what Farragut is trying to accomplish — planning for the future, engaging the community in the process, etc.” Farragut Business Alliance targets one community forum per quarter for next year, Purvis said. “We’re trying to create forums not just for the business community but for the residents as well, with pertinent issues that affect all of us,” he said. Tickets are $30 and available on the FBA website, Deadline to purchase tickets is noon, Monday, Oct. 7.

speak against gun ban


A number of residents turned out at a workshop Thursday, Sept. 26, to speak to the Farragut Board of Mayor and Aldermen about the Town’s current ban on guns in its four parks. “The only people you affect are the people like me, who are the most law-abiding people you can meet,” said Doug Dutton of South Fox Den Drive. He contended the law only affects law-abiding citizens. “You don’t control the bad guys [with the law],” he said. “They ignore it.” The issue came up several

months ago when the Board received some e-mails asking for a revisit of its current ordinance, Town administrator David Smoak said. In 1985, the Board adopted the Town’s current ordinance, banning firearms, he said. In 2009, the state amended its law to allow individuals with a legal handgun carry permit to carry weapons in state, national and local parks. However, the amendment allowed local governments to opt out of the state law. Smoak said since the Town already had a law in place, it was grandfathered in and did not have to opt See GUNS on Page 5A

foods from The Shrimp Dock, Restaurant Linderhof and pizza places as favorites of the event. “So far, it’s really good,” Plummer said. “We’ve got a good crowd this year. It’s our fourth year coming, and we always seem to have a good time.” The food and the people always cause Plummer to return to Taste of Farragut. “We invited a bunch of friends out, so it’s a pretty gorgeous night to be out and about and socialize with the community,” she said. Friday, Sept. 27 marked the first time Jerry Lubert attended Taste of Farragut, but he said it

would not be the last. “I think it’s a good event for the community,” Lubert said. “... I think it brings everybody together, and it’s just a good drawing card for Farragut.” It also was the first time Marty Mason attended the event. “It’s been awesome,” Mason said. “It’s really been above and beyond what I was expecting to see here.” Mason said his favorite part of the event was “just being able to come and enjoy little samples of different types of food you may not get every day.” Proceeds from the annual Taste of Farragut event go to funding Farragut Business Alliance and its events.

Alderman Ron Honken It has been written many times how important volunteerism is to our community. We’ve been blessed over the years to have a great core group of people that have donated m a n y hours of their time. S o m e times the hardest part of being a Ron volunteer Honken is understanding Alderman exactly w h e r e one’s talents or interests are best suited. This was part of the impetus behind the Intro to Farragut program. Just a few months ago, we had a dozen members of our community spend time over several weeks learning the history of our community, the services it provides to citizens, and how the

various departments work. They also gained an understanding of how other organizations are involved with our Town, including law enforcement, fire protection, economic development, and schools. The town of Farragut offers two easy ways for citizens to get involved. Volunteers in the Farragut’s Unsung Navy Volunteer Program help the Town in various ways, including working at special events, serving as docents or gift shop hosts in the Farragut Folklife Museum, and assisting Town staff with special projects. You can also consider serving on one of our citizen committees. These committees include the Arts Council, Economic Development Committee, Beautification Committee and Visual Resources Review Board, among others. To find out more about these opportunities, visit the Town’s website ( or call the Town Hall. Although we are far from perfect, the town of Farragut runs

presstalk • Having read about the attack on a Jack Russell near A.L. Lotts [Elementary School], I felt the need to report a attack on our Border Collie near Smith Road and Kingston Pike. We are new to Farragut, yet were informed by neighbors who have seen coyotes in the area. Not a stranger to coyotes, we had somewhat of a coyote crossing at our old home near Nashville, but there was never a problem with our border collie, or anyone’s pet, being attacked in the middle of the night. I would agree these are bold coyotes, also giving our dog wounds to the head and causing him to limp. Vet checked, he is expected to recover. What the [Tennessee Wildlife Resource Agency] information specialist failed to mention is that in 2011 DNA tests ( confirm coyotes had bred with wolves in the Shenandoah Valley region. Perhaps these are the bolder coyote-wolf hybrids coming down

pretty smoothly on a day-to-day basis. Thus, it is easy to take things for granted. Much of what we take for granted is due to the efforts of the many volunteers that work behind the scenes

each day. I encourage you to take a look at the Town’s website from time to time and to read the local paper for news and opportunities on how to get involved, including when the next Intro to

671-TALK from that valley in the last few years rather than the cartoonish and skittish western coyote [with which] we are more familiar? We definitely will remember to put our pets away every night, even if the weather is nice and garage a little too warm. Also, it’s a good idea to make sure your pets are up to date on rabies vaccines. The coyotes and coyotehybrids have adapted to suburban and even city life and are not going anywhere, no matter how many are trapped or irresponsibly shot at. The TWRA specialist’s suggestion of “open season” on coyotes in such populated areas with children is misguided in my opinion. • To the woman in the black SUV behind me at the Concord/Northshore roundabout who blew her horn three times on Friday. I was stopped at Concord Road waiting for those 10 cars, which were going east. They were about 15 feet apart and I waited for them to finish up entering. You were correct that I should have moved along.

They would have been required to stop entering, and allow me to pass, which is the round about rule. My apologies for your wait and frustration, you knew the rules better than I. Editor’s Note: Vehicles entering the roundabout at Concord Road/Northshore Drive are required by law to yield to vehicles already in the circle. Drivers are not supposed to wait for vehicles approaching the roundabout to cycle through before entering. • Couldn’t help but laugh at your coyote story and the resident seeming to be unwilling to shoot varmints, but would rather taxpayer money be spent to remove her problem. Perhaps she should have thought more or investigated more before moving to rural East Tennessee where wildlife has roamed for centuries. • We attended the annual Taste of Farragut last night [Friday, Sept. 27], it’s an event we look forward to each year because we see friends from the community that we normally

Farragut program will start. You can easily become part of a group that makes this a great town to live. Thanks for being part of our community!

don’t get to see. We had our belongings at a table and when we returned a group of young ladies had moved our things knowing the seating was taken. We didn’t say anything, we just added our mementoes that had been provided by the wonderful vendors to our jackets and moved on. When we returned again then all those treasures were gone. So, I just hope whoever stole them is having just as much fun throwing those footballs as our grandson would be having and wear those sunglasses with pride knowing that you destroyed one family’s trust in the community that they so love. • Editorial freedom is a wonderful concept, but it does come with its responsibilities.

out. In response to citizens’ emails, the Town’s staff surveyed park users and gathered statistics on crime in the parks. Sue Stuhl, the Town’s Parks and Leisure Services director, reported of the 151 people surveyed in the Farragut ZIP Code area, 55 percent said they wanted to keep the current law while 45 percent said they wanted guns to be allowed. She added Knox County Sheriff’s Office reports showed most of the crimes were vehicular burglaries. There was only one aggravated assault, which was this year at McFee Park, she said. Alderman Bob Markli said he wanted a valid reason for the current Town law. “There are lots of good reasons why law abiding citizens should exercise their rights,” he said. Likewise, Vice Mayor Dot LaMarche said she has received a lot of e-mails about the issue, most of which were in favor of lifting the ban. She said because the Town has no police force of its own and depends upon Knox County Sheriff’s Office patrols, she thinks it might be time to reconsider the ban. On the other hand, Alderman Jeff Elliott supported the

Cops From page 2A • Sept. 20: A 20-year-old woman was arrested for attempting to steal a wallet and a set of sterling silver rings valued at about $75 from Kohl’s department store in Farragut. The arrestee was taken into custody. • Sept. 17: Police arrested a 54-yearold woman for attempting to steal about $180 of brassieres by concealing them in her purse and then attempt to run on foot from the store. The suspect was taken into custody and transported to the Knox County Detention Center. • Sept. 13: A representative of I.D. Renovations reported to police about $600 in tools were missing from a

firearms ban. “I see this as a safety issue,” Elliott said. At sporting events he said he has seen countless occasions where there have been flashpoints among parents, players, referees and coaches He said he felt safer without guns in the parks. “Am I to understand you don’t trust the participants?” Markli asked Elliott. Elliott reiterated he felt safer that guns are not allowed. “I’ve seen people in fistfights,” he added. Several citizens agreed with Markli, however. For instance, Newton Calhoun of Prince George Parish Drive said he thinks the ban leaves the park users vulnerable to criminals. Newton, a Vietnam veteran, related his experience when the military declared his base a gunfree site. “Charlie didn’t not use guns,” he said. Mayor Ralph McGill said the Board would revisit the issue. On a similar matter, the Board heard information regarding smoking in the parks. Smoak said while the Town staff surveyed park users on permitting firearms in the parks, it also surveyed them on allowing smoking. The results showed 80 percent wanted no smoking in the parks while 20 percent wanted smoking to be allowed. Stahl Drive worksite. Complainant stated a witness (neighbor) saw a large white male and a female in a silver SUV at the residence that morning. He stated the female had something over her head and couldn’t provide any further physical description. Complainant stated the suspect and vehicle description match an employee the victim had just hired. The victim stated he sent the suspect a text message the day before advising him they wouldn’t be working today because it would be too wet and added there was no reason for the suspect to be at the site. Complainant said he contacted the suspect and the suspect denied being at the site. Complainant stated the witness could identify the suspect.

Courtney Hliva of the Concord area said about her and 3-yearold daughter, Avery’s attending. “This is more fun. She likes to dance.” Tara Mallison of Farragut said the event is a fun time for her children. “We really like the music, and they love to dance,” Mallison said. “We appreciate the sponsors of this.” “It’s wonderful,” said C.B. Brown of Farragut. He and wife, Patti, brought their granddaughter to Picnic on the Pike. “We sit behind Lewell [Mollen, guitar player with The Chillbillies] in Sunday school,” he said. Alan Calhoun of Farragut said the music of The Chillbillies also brought him and his wife, Tammy, to the event. “I think it’s great,” he said

had fun.” David Freeman, guitarist with BackTalk, said his band also had a great time. “We appreciate having the opportunity to play,” Freeman said.


Most of the delegates were married and raised children. Roger Sherman had 15 children by 2 wives and nine of the delegates had at least two wives. Four of the delegates, Abraham Baldwin, Nicholas Gilman, David of St. Thomas Jenifer and Alexander Martin were lifelong bachelors. The men mirrored the overwhelmingly protestant character of American religious life at the time and were members of various denominations. Only two, Carroll and Fitzsimons, were Roman Catholics.

Bluford officiates over Rotary

Christian Academy of Knoxville pitched the idea of bringing R.A. Dickey to Farragut, and with First Baptist Concord’s help it turned into quite a catch. Dickey, 2012 National League Cy Young Award honoree and former Tennessee Volunteers AllAmerican pitcher — who struggled for several years as a journeyman Major League pitcher before discovering a knuckleball and renewed faith in Jesus Christ — will speak in FBC’s worship center at 7 p.m., Thursday evening, Oct. 3. “I am really excited to be coming back to Knoxville and sharing at the CAK event,” said Dickey, a starting pitcher for the Toronto Blue Jays this season who turned around his career in 2011 and 2012 as a New York Met. “The support and encouragement I have received from UT and the city while I was there was life changing. I hope to see a lot of my friends and fans at what will be a special event for me on Oct. 3 at First Baptist Concord.” Karen Garner, CAK director of communications, said, “I don’t know that we’ve ever had any-

thing like this, with a person of that stature.” “But more importantly, he has an amazing Christian testimony. And he’s gone through struggles in his life, [something] that he was very open about when he released his book [‘Winding Up with R.A. Dickey’] last year. “He’s also quick to say that his faith in the Lord is what got him through all of that,” she added. Bob Neu, CAK Head of School, said Dickey “stands as a true role model for everyone and anyone. We want our community to know his testimony and pray the Lord will use R.A. Dickey's words to change hearts and ultimately lives.” Festivities begin at 5:30 p.m. with VIP ticket buyers ($100 each for first 100 sold) having “a meetand-greet with R.A.” Garner said, adding VIP buyers should enter worship center’s main entrance. “They can get a picture, get an autograph, give him a hug. Whatever.” Doors open for all other ticket purchasers ($30 for adults beyond college age, $10 for students age 11 through college, and free for children 10 and under) at See PITCH on Page 9A

Passion for invention


The Rev. David Bluford changed into his officiating stripes to better make his point, preparing to educate The Rotary Club of Farragut about football officiating 101. “Most of us who wear the stripes recognize that we’re probably one of the least liked individuals on most Fridays, Thursdays, Saturdays,” said Bluford, himself a Farragut Rotarian who serves as chaplain/manager of guest services at Parkwest Medical Center, during his address at the club’s regular

A constant thirst for knowledge, with his passion for invention literally helping break ground in the implement industry, has been Gordon Daniels’ fountain of youth for 102 years. This 37-year member of Concord United Methodist Church and Concord resident has found decades of happiness inventing things — with dozens of patents — most recently finding a way to manipulate his weedeater to still trim his yard by hooking it onto his “outdoor” Hoveround. Not to mention how, at age 100, he invented an easy way to start

his pull-cord chain saw so he could chop up a blown down tree on his property. A mechanic with a penchant for inventing road-grading improvements, Gordon also has invented a device to plant beans in the garden beside his Bunker Hill subdivision home while firmly seated in his Hoveround. “The biggest entertainment for me is making something better. … I’m trying to learn stuff every day,” said Gordon, who turned 102 Tuesday, Sept. 10. Born in Spokane, Wash. in 1911, Gordon was trained in Los Angeles in basic mechanical skills. One of Gordon’s first jobs See PASSION on Page 15A

It’s never too late to say Thank You! deathnotices We SHEs (Sidetracked Home Executives) are some of the most thoughtful people alive, but sometimes that’s all we do is think about it. A month ago Terry and I went to a neighbor’s home for dinner and I have yet to send a “thank you” note! It’s weighing on me and it got me to ask the proverbial SHE Pam q u e s t i o n ; Young WHY? Why Make it have I put off writing Fun! a nice note conveying our appreciation for a wonderful evening? (It wouldn’t take five minutes.) Whenever I ask myself a question, I am always able to cough up a response from somewhere in my mind. “Why haven’t I sent a Thank You note to Colleen and Charlie?” “I’m out of Thank You notes.” “So, what cards do I have in the drawer?” “Let’s see, a couple of birthday cards, several “thinking of you” cards, a “celebrating your achievement” card and some sympathy cards.” “How about we use the “celebrating your achievement” card,

it’s so pretty and it has such a nice envelope?” “Okay, but now I’m embarrassed for all the time that has passed, they might not even remember the event.” “Oh they remember it! So, write something like this: “Dear Colleen and Charlie, Okay, I know this card says, ‘Congratulations on making your dream come true,’ but I’m out of Thank You notes and keep forgetting to get some when I’m at the store. So I decided to use this card that has nothing to do with thanking you, just so I could get this out to you. In case you don’t remember the delicious dinner you prepared for us a month ago, you served barbequed salmon and that salad with your homemade dressing was phenomenal! I know fixing that dinner for us was not a momentous dream comes true for you, but at least now you know that we thoroughly enjoyed ourselves.

You know, like the lawyer who sent you an announcement for his high school graduation and you never sent him anything. It’s never too late! With the Tardy Card you’d still be able to wish him well and you’d both feel good. I want us to free ourselves of the guilt that hangs over us when we haven’t given a gift or card and years have passed, and we never forget. It’s never too late to clear up the past and be guiltfree. If you owe a thank you to someone and you are out of thank you notes and until I get my Tardy Cards designed, I dare you to send out a “wrong” card today. There’s a bonus to this tip, you’ll also be uncluttering a drawer at the same time.

working together who are related. Officiating had a crude start decades ago. “They were just local individuals … they often would get somebody who had played [at the school where that game was being played],” he said. “I think that’s where the old adage of home field advantage came from. They would do all the home games for that team, whether it was high school or college.”

Though officiating began to grow more impartial in how officials were chosen, “They wore pretty much anything,” Bluford said. “And then they realized after a few times when the ball got handed off to the official or thrown to the official, or the official got tackled, they realized it was time to put them in something that stood out a little bit more. Initially, it was just a singularly colored shirt with a bright color to it.”


‘Mother Rotary’ talks Rotary 101 BHS fruit sale ■ ALAN SLOAN

Want to join a local Rotary Club? Let “Mother Rotary,” Joan McIntee, do the selling. McIntee, a 26-year Rotary member, spoke about “Rotary 101” during The Rotary Club of Turkey Creek Sunset’s regular Tuesday evening meeting, Sept. 3, in Faith Lutheran Church. Founded by “lonely lawyer” Paul Harris on Feb. 23, 1905 in Chicago, Rotary is well know for its ongoing campaign to eradicate polio worldwide. Rotary started admitting women in 1987 after “a court case in California,” said McIntee, member of The Rotary Club of Farragut who also is an honorary member of Turkey Creek Sunset and The Rotary Club of Tellico Lake. She also is a former assistant governor of Rotary District 6780. “This district, which goes from Nashville to Virginia, has had the most international officers and directors of any district in the entire world,” McIntee added. “So we are very, very fortunate with the leadership that we have in this district.” The Rotary Club of Turkey Creek, chartered March 12, 2012 and currently with 25 members, is one of 65 in District 6780. Worldwide, “Rotary has roughly 1.2 million members and is represented “in over 200 countries,” McIntee said. Wearing her 25-year perfect attendance pin among other pins, McIntee said attendance “is one of the most important things.” Rotary members are required to attend 60 percent of any meeting, “and you need to attend 50 percent of the meetings within each half year of your Rotary year.” Four consecutive unexcused absences and you are expelled.

Joan McIntee, 26-year Rotary Club member and currently member of The Rotary Club of Farragut, points out one of several Rotary pins she’s earned during those 26 years. McIntee spoke to The Rotary Club of Turkey Creek Sunset, where she is an honorary member, about basic Rotary rules and practices during the club’s Tuesday, Sept. 3 meeting.

“Any Rotary activity” serves as a “make-up” for any absence from a meeting, McIntee said. “In Rotary we go by first names, we don’t go by ‘Dr. Mike’ or ‘Rev. So and So,’ regardless of what your profession is,” McIntee said. “That’s rather unique.” If a given club “has less than 50 members, you can have [no more than] five of any one” profession, McIntee said. “And if you have more than 50 members, and it’s [no more than] 10 percent.” “In a club as large as Farragut,

at one time we had eight dentists. ‘Ok, how did you do that?’ We had a pediatric dentist, a dental surgeon and so on,” McIntee added. “It took some juggling. “Rotary does that so you can have balance in your entire community.” As for attempting to promote your business during a meeting, “That’s kind of a big no-no,” McIntee said. “You can hand out business cards.” See ROTARY on Page 10A

Rotary speakers representing a given business “can give an educational speech” about their business, “not commercial,” McIntee said. Rotary’s most famous mottos are “service above self” and “he who profits most serves best,” McIntee said. Youth arm of Rotary, Interact

Club, has expanded down from high school in recent years to now include middle schools. “It’s very, very popular in this district,” McIntee said, adding that membership at Farragut High School “is around a hundred. A few years ago it was probably 300 or 400.” RotarAct is the name given to aspiring Rotarians of college age as defined in the United States, McIntee said.

Lindsey Smith, left, senior English advanced placement literature and composition teacher at Farragut High School, enjoys her conversation with Kay Rangnekar, parent of senior twins Avanti and Aditi Rangnekar who are in Smith’s class. This conversation followed Smith’s address to parents, outlining her class schedule and expectations for student performance, during FHS Open House Thursday, Sept. 5.


Lindsey Smith is doubling her reputation for stellar organization and preparation skills, courtesy of the Rangnekar family, in her senior English advanced placement literature and composition classes at Farragut High School. “I have twin girls,” said Kay Rangnekar, parent of seniors Avanti and Aditi Rangnekar, “who are both equally happy” in Smith’s first and third block classes, respectively. “I think she’s a great teacher, she explained the whole subject very well,” said Kay, who attended Avanti’s first block session for parents, in Smith’s classroom, during annual FHS Open House Thursday evening, Sept. 5. Kay’s husband, Nick Rangnekar, attended Aditi’s third block parent session. “The AP composition and literature, they cover a lot of it, but since she gives them a schedule every two weeks ahead of time, that really helps my children to be really well prepared,” Kay added. “She is very organized. … It makes me very happy because my children know what they are doing for the next day. “They are both equally happy and they are both bright students, that’s why they are in all AP classes. She really helps them in writing, also.” Announcing to parents that she is in her 10th school year teaching at FHS, Smith gave each parent “an outline” with important dates.

also included “an overview of the course … and goals. “I’m super organized as far as calendar and dates,” Smith added. “… In this class, the pacing is quick. I realize there’s a lot of information. … Students who are in AP classes really like to be organized.” Class evaluation also includes “peer editing,” Smith added. Although parent Derek Pacifico said he and wife, Johanna, learned a lot during this most recent Open House for senior parents, he added, “Last year is when

we learned to be on the ball” as junior parents of a girl who’s been accepted to Tennessee Tech University. “It was really important last year, as junior [parents], to learn how to maneuver through and prepare for the colleges … so it wouldn’t be a bombardment” as senior parents, he added. “So now we’re ahead of the game. “We acted on that [information] last year, and in the summer we took a tour of TTU and my daughter fell in love with it,” Pacifico added.

Fire Safety Day set in Farragut ■


The town of Farragut Fire Prevention Office and the Knox County Fire Prevention Bureau will provide a day of fire safety demonstrations for residents and businesses Tuesday, Oct. 8, at Farragut Town Hall along 11408 Municipal Center Drive. Also, they will offer a Fire Safety and Prevention for Homeowners workshop starting at 7 p.m. Oct. 8, in the Farragut Town Hall board room, and four fire extinguisher demonstrations will take place that day: 9-10 a.m., 10:30-11:30 a.m., 2-3 p.m. and 3:30-4:30 p.m. Also, the demonstrations will feature the fire bureau’s sprinkler trailer and fire extinguisher simulator. Participants can attend any time during the onehour sessions, said Chelsey Riemann, public relations coordinator with the town of Farragut. The workshop will provide information about how fires start, and the presentation will deal specifically with fire safety and prevention in the home. Riemann said it will include such topics as smoke alarms, carbon monoxide detectors, unattended cooking and kitchen fires and electrical and heating safety. Participants will be able to safely practice the proper technique for extinguishing a liquid fire on the stove, using a kitchen fire simulator. All events are free and open to the public. This is the second year the town of Farragut Fire Prevention Office and Rural/Metro Fire Department have partnered to hold this event as part of Fire Prevention Week, said Colin Cumesty, EMT-IV, fire inspector with Rural Metro Fire

Department. “We look forward to making this an annual event,” he said. From August 2012 to August 2013, Cumesty said fires caused $6.7 million in property damage in 282 incidents throughout Knox County. Removing vehicle and fires occurring outside a structure, Cumesty said the top locations where fires were started in Knox County were: common living areas in the home; kitchens; bedrooms or sleeping areas; garages; laundry rooms; exterior balconies, decks and porches and attics and crawl spaces. “Fires starting in these seven locations reflect 21 percent of the 282 fires that occurred in Knox County from August 2012 through August 2013 for a total of almost $3.5 million in property damage,” he said. Cumesty said the main causes for the house fires were improper use of portable heating equipment, improper use and disposal of smoking material, overloaded electrical equipment or the failure of improperly maintained electrical equipment and unattended cooking. He noted there were no business fires reported during that time period. “By educating the public about the conditions that cause fires in our homes and businesses, we are empowering people with knowledge about specific actions they can take to reduce the potential for a fire emergency where they live or work,” Cumesty said. “Tennessee has consistently ranked in the top 10 for fire fatalities with 70 deaths in 2013,” Cumesty said. “Through classes and educational programs, we are working to change that statistic.”

FBI Special Agent Ken Moore has a laugh with “Mother Rotary,” Joan McIntee, following Moore’s address to The Rotary Club of Farragut. The club’s weekly Wednesday meeting coincided with the 12th anniversary of 9/11, as Moore pointed out FBI coun-

Moore speaks of 9/11 lessons ■


You’ve come a long way baby. Federal Bureau of Investigation learned valuable lessons in the wake of smoldering wreckage following the 9/11 terrorist attacks. Ken Moore, special agent for FBI in charge of Knoxville Division since May 2012, outlined three major areas where FBI has dramatically upgraded its counterterrorism efforts. An FBI agent for 26 years, Moore was guest speaker of The Rotary Club of Farragut during 9/11’s 12th anniversary Wednesday, Sept. 11. A former assistant special agent in charge of FBI’s Charlotte Division, Moore also was part of the FBI’s first-ever presence during an international conflict, serving as on-scene commander for FBI operations in Afghanistan in 2006. Instead of just reacting to terrorist attacks, “Our mission now is to prevent and disrupt attacks before they can happen,” Moore said. “We started by shifting personnel and resources to counterterrorism.” The FBI’s shift fell into three categories of improvement, Moore said: “intelligence, technology and partnerships.” As for intelligence, “We started a new hiring campaign,” Moore said about “hundreds” of new

hires. “The translators were especially critical to our success.” “In addition to that we integrated our intelligence program with other agencies in the intelligence community,” which included “the CIA, the NSA,” Moore added. “… Our mission is not merely to isolate and disrupt a plot, but to completely dismantle the network behind it.” As for technology, “Before the Sept. 11 attacks, most of our information technology was outdated,” Moore said. “In fact, it wasn’t uncommon in the organization to hear references to our technology as being ‘yesterday’s technology for today.’ … We had old processors, old servers … in fact, most agents did not have access to computers. We didn’t have e-mail that allowed us to communicate with each other on an immediate basis.” Since 9/11, “We have installed thousands of state-of-the-art computers,” Moore said. “Every agent has a computer at his or her desk. All of our intelligence analyst have immediate access to numerous databases crossing the intelligence community. … We are all now sharing information,” including “our state and local partners.” With only 14,000 FBI agents worldwide, “There are police departments much larger than the FBI,” Moore said about the See MOORE on Page 15A

Concord Presbyterian Festival set for Oct. 12 ■


Older children will add new flavor to Concord Presbyterian Church’s “every odd year” Fall Festival from 10:30 a.m. to 4:30 p.m., Saturday, Oct. 12. “What’s new is, we have all of our children from [age] 11 up running the whole children’s activities, our youth group,” said Jane Koopmann, festival co-chair along with Jeanny Davis. “New this year, instead of having the slides and all that kind of thing, we’re hoping all the kids will decorate and take home a pumpkin free,” Koopmann added. “These are small pumpkins, so all the kids can carry them and decorate them there. “We also are planning other crafts. And we have all kinds of games. We try to add something new every year, and see how it works out.” The “children’s area” will be located diagonally across from the church, featuring animals. “I know Ms. Elsie [Prater] is bringing goats, chickens,” Koopmann said. “We’re trying to get the little Shetland ponies to come.” Held within the Old Concord blocks surrounding Concord Presbyterian, the festival returns lots of other favorite attractions from its 2011 event. “We have, like, six or eight musicians who volunteer their services that day,” Koopmann said. “I think that’s a lot to do it free for an hour, so we’re really pleased with that. “On the lakeside we’ll have a car show, the older cars and trucks,” Koopmann added. “On Second Street, we’ll have arts and crafts and music. “We have a quilt show in the sanctuary. And we sell homemade goods. And this year we’ve added homemade jams and jellies. … I think we’ve got 150 jars of blackberry, strawberry and peach jam. … We do that in the fellowship hall. … Last time I think we had the whole perimeter full of food, bake sales and that kind of thing.” As for reputation, “We are noted for our cheesecake and our bread pudding,” Koopmann said. “There are three ladies, and we do all the bread pudding. We have always run out, no matter how many we make.” A refreshments tent will be located “over close to the [church] playground,” Koopmann added, featuring hot dogs, hamburgers, potato chips, popcorn, soft drinks and water. Area businesses also donate prizes for the festival’s silent auction, which runs from 10:30 a.m. to 4 p.m. “I know that we have got jeweled globes that are donated by Jewelry TV. They’re beautiful,” Koopmann said. “… And we have things that are donated all year from our members. … We’ve got some crystal. And we’ve got antique planes. Several people have donated antique things that are really neat.” Proceeds benefit the church’s adopted families and oversees

troops during the holidays. “We adopt 10 families at Christmas, and for a hundred members that’s a big undertaking. … We give them enough food, usually it’s for a week. Each child gets a gift,” Koopmann said. “And then we also do the shoe boxes that we send overseas, usually for the holidays. We fill shoeboxes with needs. Toys … all sorts of things for children.” “It would be great if we could get $2,000, that’s a $1,000 for this year and next year,” she added. Koopmann suggested parking “in the graveyard that’s up above us. … And just all along all the little side streets.”

Roach earns card ■


Sinking a 4-foot putt on No. 18 at Fox Den Country Club’s News Sentinel Open to barely make the cut Friday, Aug. 16, then rebo-unding from near disaster on the final four holes at Cox Classic in Omaha, Neb. proved critical for Wes Roach. Those efforts allowed Roach, a former Webb School of Knoxville state champ and Duke Blue Devil, to earn his 2014 PGA Tour Card as a third-year pro, finishing 22nd on the 2013 tour money list. Finishing 16th at Cox Classic Aug. 22-25 allowed Roach, to slip into the Tour’s top 25 money list at $148,098. Barely — less than $6,000 from being outside the top 25. “I was kind of sitting on Cloud 9 for a little while I guess,” Roach said. To be playing in the same tournaments as Tiger Woods and Phil Mickelson, “It’s definitely a dream come true to be able to play on that stage and be able to compete with those guys,” Roach said. However, “I want to compete and I want to win,” he added. “I’m not necessarily surprised that I was able to get it done, but definitely pleased to see the hard work pay of. It doesn’t stop here, I’ve got to keep working harder.” The official start of the 2014 PGA Tour season actually begins this month, where Roach, 24, hopes to be playing. Brad Rose, highly respected local golf pro and teacher whose

base of operation is Willow Creek Golf Club, is Roach’s swing coach/teacher. “I’m very proud,” said Rose, adding he’s coached Wes “since he was about 12 years old.” Since Roach joined the Tour in 2011, “He’s matured a lot as a golfer and as a person in general,” Rose said. “He’s growing up. He’s working out all the time. He’s eating healthy, practicing hard. … I’m not really surprised, I always thought he could make it. “He can hit the ball in both directions, fade or draw. He’s putting better. His wedge game has improved drastically,” Rose added. “He was a Rolex AllAmerican coming out of high school.” Roach said about Rose, “I owe

it all to him, he’s been huge to me.” In addition, “Scott Stallings has helped him a lot,” Rose said about the Oak Ridge native and PGA Tour pro who won a PGA Tour event last year. After struggling a bit in his first professional season in 2011, Roach credits “work ethic,” adding that before this past season, “I didn’t have a trainer and I didn’t really work out much, so I think that’s a huge factor in it. … I work out every day on the road as well as at home.” Also crediting caddie Drew Wall, Roach said he “learned a lot that first year about what it takes to be successful.” Rose said, “People just don’t really realize how hard it is to qualify for the PGA Tour.”

As the wine manager in a fast paced, high volume store, my duties are varied. From stocking shelves, ringing up customers and checking in vendors, which are all important aspects of the job; my favorite part is helping people find that right bottle of wine for the occasion. What I find very often is that people have that one wine that they like and seem to be uncomfortable in moving away from that particular Fruit wine. I of the like to vine challenge customers to try o t h e r wines that are out there in the market. There is a whole big world of wine out there that the masses are missing because they don’t understand the name or the labels, which can be a little confusing. Let’s say you are a Chardonnay drinker. You come in the store, go straight to your brand and you are back in your car in two minutes. That is all well and good, but oh, the wines you are missing. From the perfumed-like Albarino from northwest Spain, perfect with fish, to a dry Riesling that will bring new life to your favorite chicken dish. Or perhaps an elegant Viognier, which has tastes of apricots and white peaches. If you need something to complement shellfish or oysters, a California Sauvignon Blanc or the

oaked Fumé Blanc is an ideal choice. These are just a few white wines that could be substituted for a Chardonnay, but by no means all. A crisp Chenin Blanc or an Italian Soave or Pinot Grigio would be a refreshing change of pace. If you have never tried an Austrian Gruner Veltliner, with its crisp, peppery notes, you are missing out. Even Chardonnays from different regions or continents are going to have different taste characteristics and profiles. Now let’s say you are a Merlot drinker. Week after week you buy that same bottle. Let’s get you out of that “comfort zone.” Try an Italian Chianti, made from the Sangiovese grape, perfect for spaghetti or lasagna or the food friendly Grenache, which is often blended in France with Syrah to make Cotes du Rhone, but is outstanding on it’s own. One of my favorites is the Malbec, which got its start in the Cahors region of France, but has become the wine of choice in Argentina. It is grown at higher elevations, especially in Mendoza, at the base of the Andes Mountains. Velvety smooth and easy drinking, Malbec’s will stand up to a grilled rib eye or complement a beef stew. These are just a few examples of the many wines that you will find in Farragut that any wine lovers owe to themselves to try. We will explore many more in future columns. If you are willing to get out of that wine “comfort zone” an exciting world of new flavors awaits. Gary Johnson Wine Manager Dixie Lee Wine & Liquors

was “a mechanic for a road builder,” he said. Moving to Nashville in 1940, “I came here and we created a plant, the Winston Manufacturing Company, and it was backed by a big construction company in Nashville,” he said. “… And we built a lot of [machines] for the Armed Services.” Gordon expressed special pride about his invention of a “scraper” implement tractor, featuring narrower 37-inch blade that cut 12 inches deeper into the earth than similar machines of the time, therefore more productive and efficient, he said. “I had a patent for it. It’s still popular now.” However, with no major companies buying into his “scraper” invention, Gordon said he remains “absolutely bitter about it.” Pat Kennedy, Gordon’s youngest daughter, pointed out her dad “designed lighting standards, street lights … he owned his own business. And they were used all over the south.” Also, “I’ve built railroad servicing equipment” that included inventing a machine to pick up discarded railroad ties on the sides of the track, Gordon added. Coming to Knox County in 1960, Gordon went to work for a company “that made mining machines,” he said about his job as a “designer.” Gordon has three daughters, also including Anne Parker and Susan Houk, with seven grandchildren and 14 great-grandchildren. Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett proclaimed Aug. 23

Gordon Daniels Day in Knox County. Gordon earned Covenant Health Platinum Award in 2004 based on “star-quality achievements and inspiring attitude exemplify the spirit of positive aging.” “He helped get the CADES program started” at CUMC, it’s a program for the elderly,” Kennedy said. “He used go help the shutins … help fix things at their houses.” A former avid hunter and fish-

erman, Gordon recently was recognized as the oldest ever member of Tennessee Wildlife Association. Able to live by himself overnight, with various help during the weekends and some on weekends, Gordon was driving until almost age 100.

significant terrorist attack on U.S. soil,” he said. “That’s because of those partnerships. … We’ve had over 50 incidents that we’ve disrupted since 9/11.”

A 2013 Parade of Homes spec house represents a new beginning for The Farm at Willow Creek, a seven-year-old Farragut subdivision “back on track” after foundational neglect, and the resulting damage, was corrected according to new ownership and town of Farragut’s top administrator. “If you really think about it, this has been one of those success sto-

ries of a private-public partnership when you had a developer that abandoned a subdivision,” said Kent A. Burns, president of Freeman Webb Investments, Inc. of Nashville, which partnered with town of Farragut in August 2010 to revitalize The Farm, off Evans Road. “I was really proud of the Town, that they were open minded and creative enough to enter into a partnership with a for-profit entity,” Burns added.

After its purchase and Town partnership agreement, Freeman Webb “waited for the market to come back” before seeking to build at The Farm, Burns said. A 3,850-foot Parade of Homes spec house recently was built by Maplewood Development, LLC. “We’ve built two spec houses. … And we’ve sold them another lot where [Maplewood is] having another custom home built for another client,” Burns said. Parker Slack, Maplewood presi-

dent/co-owner, labeled The Farm as “a new neighborhood,” pointing out “the pond, all the greenscape, the big lots. I’m just happy Freeman Webb came back in and happy that Maplewood’s able to be involved.” Two other homes being built on lots not owned by Freeman Webb add up to “five homes that are either started or recently finished in the subdivision. And it only had See THE FARM on Page 3B

Cotton Eyed Joe celebrates 20 years ■


Cotton Eyed Joe will celebrate its 20th anniversary with a show featuring country music band Montgomery Gentry Thursday, Oct. 10. Doors will open at 6 p.m., said Jackie Hicks, who is in charge of promotions for Cotton Eyed Joe. Opening band Brent Cobb will start at 9 p.m., and Montgomery Gentry will begin at around 10. Appropriately enough for the 20th anniversary, tickets cost $20. “There’s no deadline in buying the tickets,” said Lee Fling, a manager at Cotton Eyed Joe, in a Sept. 26 interview. “Of course we would like every show to sell out in advance. As of this time right now, the show is not sold out. Tickets are available through our website,, or you can buy them in person at the Cotton Eyed Joe, or you can buy tickets at any Elliott’s Boots in the Knoxville area. ... Tickets are always available at the door, day of show, as long as the show is not sold out in advance.” If the show does sell out, it will be publicized on the Cotton Eyed Joe website and through social media, he said. Fling called Montgomery

12 homes when we came in … out of the 80 lots,” Burns said. In all, Burns said there are “40 people” who have either purchased a home or lot at The Farm as of late September. “Sixteen of the 80 lots have been developed so far,” said Ryan J. Witherell, vice president of client services and new media for Seigenthaler Public Relations, in an e-mail. Burns said he's “getting calls from all these builders” who are saying, “‘The Farm at Willow Creek sounds like it’s back on track, can we talk to you about lots?’ I’ve had three of four call me in the last 30 days with that conversation.” Freeman Webb also “helped properly organize the [Home-

owners Association], because it had never officially been properly organized,” Burns said. “… We came in and subsidized the homeowners association on the landscaping. … We added irrigation to the subdivision that was never finished out. … We actually redid the landscaping up and down Evans Road.” Soon after the partnership was realized, Burns said town of Farragut “replaced all the drainage from the lake to [Evans] Road, which is where they were having the problems.” By November 2011, “The changes were made and all previous issues were resolved,” Witherell said in an e-mail. Since replacing the drainage, “We haven’t had any more problems with the roads or the drainage in the lake,” Burns said. David Smoak, Farragut Town

administrator, confirmed that the Town “got all of the infrastructure issues corrected that were not done properly by the prior developer. And I think we’ve been able to stabilize that development with our stormwater system that’s out there. “Hopefully what that means is a very positive subdivision for people to come and start moving into,” Smoak added. “I know Freeman Webb has been working hard to build some homes in there, to get more activity in there. … That’s a beautiful piece of property overlooking the mountains and everything else.” “We think the partnership went well.”

Lady Ads end District 4-AAA regular season 14-0

KEN LAY Correspondent

Farragut High School’s volleyball team completed an improbable feat on Thursday, Sept. 26, at Hardin Valley Academy. It was there that the Lady Ads finished off a perfect District 4AAA regular season. Farragut (37-6 overall, 14-0 in the district) culminated its perfect conference campaign with wins over the host Lady Hawks 25-22, 25-12 and Lenoir City 25-6, 25-8. Lady Ads’ fourth-year head coach Susan Davidson was happy. She, however, acknowledged that her squad’s work is far from done. “It’s tough to go undefeated in any district but our district is one of the toughest in the state,” Davidson said. “I want our kids to enjoy their accomplishments. “This was one of their goals coming into the season and any of the teams in our district, except for the two that are still building [Lenoir City and West], can go into any other district and win it. Bearden is a great team and Hardin Valley has battled all

year. They’ve struggled because they’ve had so many injuries.” Farragut has a few more nondistrict matches before heading to Lenoir City to play in the district tournament later this month. Lady Admirals 2 The Lady Lady Hawks 0 Ads won the 2012 district tournament as the No. 2 seed. Bearden won last year’s regular-season championship. The Lady Admirals then knocked off the Lady Bulldogs in the tournament title game before Bearden returned the favor a week later at the Region 2-AAA Tournament title game. The Lady Bulldogs went on to the state tournament and finished fourth. The top three seeds in this year’s district tournament all hail from West Knox County. Bearden (29-6, 12-2) is the second seed and newcomer Hardin Valley Academy (31-14, 10-4) claimed the third spot despite being ravaged by injuries.

After having some early season struggles, Farragut High School girls soccer team has finally put things together. The Lady Admirals picked up a huge 7-0 road win at Karns Thursday, Sept. 26, and if there was a match that was microcosm of the Lady Admirals’ 2013 season, it was the showdown against the Lady Beavers. Farragut was sluggish early but later mustered Lady Admirals 7 enough offensive firepower Karns 0 to score three goals before halftime. “We came out flat and at the beginning, they were beating us to the ball,” Lady Ads’ head coach Dennis Lindsay said. “We were definitely not playing up to our standards.

For the second time this season, youthful yet unbeaten Knoxville Catholic was saved by its senior kicker. Wyatt Price’s 39-yard field goal with 1:10 left in regulation, set up by a 31-yard crossing pass from junior quarterback Zac Jancek to freshman phenom Amari Rodgers, kept the Irish perfect (5-0) with a hard fought 15-14 win at Hardin Valley Academy Friday, Sept. 27. “I was more nervous than I’ve been anytime in my entire life,” Price said, but added, “I’ve always welcomed a chance like this.” Price’s 41-yard field goal with 5:55 left cut the HVA lead to 14-12. Despite clanking his only extra point attempt off the left upright in the second quarter, Price also added a 19-yard field goal in the second quarter. The Irish winning drive started

at the KCHS 27 with just under three minutes remaining. Jancek also threw a 7–yard touchdown pass to sophomore Chase Kuerschen late in the second quarter, putting the Irish ahead 9-7. “We go into the games refusing to loose,” Jancek said. After Jancek’s apparent 71yard TD pass to Will Martinez was called back early in the third quarter due to a holding penalty, the Hawks (3-2) seized momentum. Hardin Fighting Irish 15 Valley Hawks 14 marched 61 yard to take the lead, ending with Jordan Jackson’s 6-yard scoring run. Nathan White, HVA junior quarterback, hit a leaping sophomore Chandler Viscardis for 24 yards on fourth down to keep that drive alive. “Chandler had a good night catching the football,” HVA head See IRISH on Page 9B


Warriors can’t exploit enough GCA turnovers ■

TONY MANILLA Correspondent

Most fans at Grace Christian Academy Friday would have bet the house on a display of offensive firepower. And why wouldn’t they? CAK’s John Sharpe and Devin Smith of GCA entered last week’s contest boasting the two best passing attacks in the Greater Knoxville area. Hopefully there weren’t many gamblers in attendance, as both teams struggled with turnovers, penalties, and other unforced errors, creating a dizzying amount of momentum shifts. In the end, it was the Rams who, despite four turnovers, emerged victorious 27-13 and improved to 6-0 on the season. However, there would be no breezing through the Warriors, who gave GCA their Grace Christian 27 first real Warriors 13 test of the season. Despite falling behind 14-0 in the first quarter, the Warriors battled back after a muffed punt by the Rams. Just allowed CAK senior Drew Jost to get his team on the board with a seven yard touchdown run that cut GCA’s lead in half. Warriors wideout/cornerback Billy Spencer took over the role of catalyst in the second quarter, igniting the visiting crowd with an electrifying punt return deep into Rams territory, then again minutes later by way of an interception with the defense backed up inside its own 5 yard-line. CAK came up empty on both occasions, as a missed 34 yard field goal by Stephen Neu and penalties stalled golden scoring chances for the Warriors, which

proved costly in the second half. The Rams stole the momentum back for good in the third quarter on a spectacular halfback pass play by senior running back Kyron Inman, who hit a wide open Kobe Kelley for a 29-yard score. “Coach called my number,” Inman said. “We went over it in practice and when he called it, I said ‘lets do it’.” Inman’s TD toss deflated the visiting Warriors, who were never able to claw back into the game. That wasn’t the only contribution made by the Rockwood transfer. Inman gave the Warrior defense fits all evening, using his speed and quickness to deliver a first quarter TD run and a few crucial first down conversions, taking the pressure off his senior quarterback Devin Smith. “He’s an athlete,” Smith said. “We can stick him out at slot receiver, fullback, tailback, it doesn’t matter, he’ll play it.” The Warriors were left to swallow their pride in what has been a frustrating 2013 season thus far. “Our guys competed hard, they’re getting a lesson in perseverance,” CAK head coach Rusty Bradley said. “We just have to keep doing our best and come in and get better every day. We were able to create some turnovers, but unfortunately we couldn’t get a couple of touchdowns.” The Warriors’ normally formidable air attack was held in check. Quarterback John Sharpe was harassed for most of the evening by an aggressive Rams defense. “We weren’t able to get much momentum going throughout the night,” said Sharpe. “Grace has always been a physical team with

big guys up front, they hit me with pressure and I had to escape the pocket.” GCA find itself heading for much greener pastures than their rivals, largely due to the team’s ability to make big plays at the right times and overcome stretches where they lacked top form. “Coach told us mistakes are going to happen,” Inman said. “We’ve got to let them go and live to fight another day. “For the seniors, its state or bust, and if we want to win state, we have to eliminate those turnovers” Smith added. “We didn’t play our best and have to work on the little things and just

improve so we can make a run for the playoffs.” If the Rams can heed Smith’s

words, their state championship ambitions could be realized come November.

Lady Hawks edge Lady Bulldogs ■

KEN LAY Correspondent

The Hardin Valley Academy girls soccer team is the newest member of the state’s toughest Class AAA district. But the Lady Hawks have adapted to their new home nicely. Hardin Valley proved that on Thursday, Sept. 26, when it went to Bearden High’s Bruce Allender Field and came away with a 3-2 District 4AAA vicLady Hawks 3 tory over SoccerDawgs 2 the host Lady Bulldogs. “We’re in this new district and the girls have done well,” Hardin Valley head coach Mike McLean said after watching his squad improve to 9-0-4 and 4-0-2 in the district. “We’ve done well, especially considering that we play six of our seven [district] games on the road.” The Hawks would notch another crucial district road win on this night. HVA, however, would have to come from behind on this muggy night in West Knoxville. After a scoreless first half, the Lady Bulldogs (11-2-1, 4-2) got on the scoreboard first on a set play. Bearden junior forward Ashley Seltzer took a corner kick from Mallory Denning. Seltzer promptly banged the ball past HVA goalkeeper Jordan Beets, a senior and two-time all-state performer, in the 42nd minute. But Bearden’s 1-0 lead didn’t hold up for long. Gabby Powers saw to that when she chipped a shot past Katie Cottrell to knot the game 1-1 in the 46th minute. And Powers, a sophomore and transfer from Webb, was far from finished. She would add two more markers and complete her hat trick in the 69th minute with the

eventual game-winner. She scored her second goal in the 64th minute. She might be new to Hardin Valley but she’s wasted little time finding a home with the Lady Hawks. She’s scored 13 goals and is the team’s leading goal scorer. “It was an important game for us and I knew that every goal would count,” Powers said. “They scored with less than a minute to go. “This is my first year at Hardin Valley Academy and every game has been tough. I missed the Farragut game [early in the season] because I was ineligible [due to the transfer] but it will be exiting if we get to play them again.” For her part, Beets was stellar. She saved 12 of the 14 shots she faced. “Their forwards are extremely fast,” Beets said of the Lady Bulldogs’ front line. “I had to step up to keep up. “The competition has definitely been high and we’ve brought everything that we had to the table.” Beets also said that Powers is a great addition to Hardin Valley’s squad. “Gabby is an incredible player,” Beets said. “She creates a lot of chances for us and she’s a benefit to our team.” Bearden scored the game’s final goal when Seltzer tallied with 53.3 seconds remaining. For Bearden, it was the same our story. The offense has been potent but the defense has been suspect at times. “We give up dumb goals,” Lady Bulldogs coach Eric Turner said. “That’s been our M.O. all season. “That’s been the story for our defense all season. Our defense has not come up with a big game all year. If we’re going to make it to state; we’re going to have some big games from our defense.”

Farragut closed the night with a 25-22, 25-8 win over the host Lady Bulldogs. The two rivals battled in the opening set as Bearden overcame deficits of 6-2, 7-3 and 8-6 to storm back and take a 10-9 lead when Eleni Georgiafundis served up a point. From there, the first set continued to be a rollercoaster ride. With the game knotted at 15, the Lady Ads’ libero Mikaela Brock served up three straight points to give Farragut an 18-15 lead. The Lady Admirals and that modest run would prove to be the difference. Bearden would battle back and pull to within 20-19 before the Lady Ads clinched the game with a 5-3 run down the stretch. Farragut went on to dominate the second game as the Lady Admirals would put this one away early. Tessa Watson served up the first three points of the match before the Lady Bulldogs scored on a side-out. Farragut then scored a defensive point and took possession. Enter Natalie Hartman. Hartman scored 10 consecutive service points and had an ace to give the Lady Admirals a 14-1 lead. Farragut was never tested after that. “We just came out in that second game and played as a team,” said Watson, Farragut’s senior setter, who finished the match with 34 assists and 13 points. Teamwork has been key to FHS’s success and last week’s match against the Lady Bulldogs was no exception. The Lady Ads got some valuable contributions from freshman Anne Abernathy and other younger players. “Anne is a great addition to our team,” Watson said of the freshman middle blocker, who made several key hits and blocks at crucial times in the first set. Junior Raegan Grooms said she was pleased with the effort from the younger players. “This was great for us and it was great for the younger girls to make contributions.” She said. “I think we played together well and these young girls show that the future is bright for Farragut volleyball.” For the Lady Bulldogs, the loss stung – especially after Bearden had to open the night in a three-

set marathon against Hardin Valley. Against HVA, Bearden was tired and made several hitting errors in the second set against the Lady Admirals. Bearden won 21-25, 25-21, 25-18. “We had five hitting errors early in that last set,” Bearden coach David McGinnis said. “It’s tough when you have to come in and play Hardin Valley and Farragut on the same night. “We had those hitting errors and you can’t have those against a good team like Farragut. The Lady Bulldogs might’ve prevailed against the Lady Hawks, but it wasn’t easy as Bearden was down 16-15 when it benefitted from a break when the referees missed an apparent four-hit violation. The Lady Bulldogs took advantage of their good fortune as Georgiafundis scored three consecutive points after a side-out to help the home team open a 19-16 lead. The Lady Hawks battled back to tie the game at 19 before Bearden used a 6-2 run to even the match. Bearden clinched things with a relatively easy victory in the third set. Hardin Valley head coach Mike Rosenke said that the controversial non-call altered the complexion of the match. But he also wasn’t looking for any excuses. “We talked after the game about not letting one call take us out of the game,” he said. “I think we competed well. But we would’ve competed a little better. “That kind of took the wind out of our sails but we make bad calls in practice to get them ready for anything that they might see.” With the district campaign behind them, local coaches and players are anticipating the upcoming postseason tournament. “I’ve said all year, that if we could stay healthy, then we could compete and be pretty good,” Rosenke said. “But we couldn’t stay healthy, but I’m looking forward to seeing us make a run in the tournament. Bearden senior Rachael Horn said that the Lady Bulldogs let one get away against Farragut, but she’s looking for some possible revenge in Lenoir City “In that first game, we played awesome and in the second game, we got behind,” she said. “I think we could’ve gotten back into the game and I think we could’ve come back. “But at some point, it was a mental thing for us. We might see them again and I think we’ll be ready.”

coach Wes Jones said. “I keep seeing Matt Brewer and Joseph Underwood in there,” Jones added about other two-way contributors. Hardin Valley marched 70 yards on its first possession of the game, ending with a Jackson

tallies before the final whistle. “I think it takes a little constructive criticism for us to get going,” said senior defender and Tennessee Lady Vols commitment Josie Jennings, who picked up an assist on Goetz’s first goal. “We take it well and things started to turn around for us when we went to Memphis [for a recent

elite tournament in which the Lady Ads went 3-0]. “We’ve been playing some tough teams.” Senior Joanda Parchman, who makes a habit of finding the backs of opposing team’s nets, picked up a pair of assists on Fiereley’s first goal and Beuerlein’s second marker.

Against the Wildcats Tuesday, Sept. 24, Beuerlein scored twice for Farragut, which opened a 3-0 lead by halftime. Cloud also had a pair of tallies. Jeter added a goal and an assist. Parchman assisted on Beuerlein’s first marker, which opened the scoring. Grace Sommi also scored for

the Lady Ads and Goetz assisted Cloud’s second tally, which closed out the scoring in the match. The Lady Admirals (10-2-3) got another shutout over Siegel in Murfreesboro Saturday. Farragut prevailed 1-0 as Parchman’s firsthalf goal represented the only scoring of the game.

3-yard TD run. He had a 25-yard run to set up the score. But during HVA’s second drive, White was hit as he threw and aggravated a sprained AC joint in his throwing shoulder. White was out a couple of series before returning, though he threw in pain. “Later on in the game I couldn’t throw the ball as well as I wanted to,” he said. “When I got

hit I got slammed. ... And on that hit it just went numb.” “But I knew my team needed me; no matter how much pain it was.” “The type of injury that Nathan’s got is going to be something he’ll have to be dealing with throughout the season,” Jones said. “… He showed a lot of character.”

After Price’s go-ahead field goal, White led his Hawks to the Irish 41 before firing four straight incomplete passes. One of the passes was knocked down by Patrick McFalla KCHS senior defensive lineman. Steve Matthews, Catholic head coach, praised Price, Rodgers and Jancek for their clutch play. “Josh Silvey played well, he

made a bunch of plays,” Matthews added about his freshman nose tackle. “ Will Martinez is always there. And the usual suspects, Dom Souder, Logan Lacey, they stepped up. “I’m proud of our guys.” On both sides of the ball, “We’ve got five freshman out there,” Matthews said. “But we’re finding ways to win.”

and the Rebels before taking last week off. Meanwhile, HVA opened the season with three consecutive wins over Karns, William Blount and South-Doyle before losing back-to back games to Maryville and the Irish. Jordan Jackson rushed for two TDs for HVA Friday night. Catholic’s victory over the Hawks last week was the fifth consecutive win for the Irish (5-0) and marked the first time that KCHS had to come from behind in 2013. HVA scored first before Zac Jancek threw a touchdown pass to Chase Keuerschen. Catholic kicker Wyatt Price, who hit a 20-yard field goal to pull Irish to within 63 a short time earlier, missed the ensuing extra point. Price would more than redeem himself in the fourth quarter. He hit a 41-yard field goal in and added a 39-yarder later in the frame to help the Irish complete the comeback. The Irish (1-0 in District 4-AA) returns to Blaine Stadium to host the Kingston Yellow Jackets Friday. Kingston (0-5, 0-2) dropped a 43-6 decision to Lenoir City Thursday, Sept. 26.

Knoxville Catholic High School kept its perfect record intact with a narrow 15-14 win at Hardin Valley Academy and Christian Academy of Knoxville dropped a 27-13 decision to Grace Christian Academy Friday night. Both the Bulldogs and the Admirals will return to the gridiron and face tough District 4-AAA foes this week. Bearden (2-3 overall, 2-0 in the district) will travel to Marble City to face West High Friday night at Bill Wilson Field. The Rebels (4-1. 1-1) beat Cleveland 35-25 at home last week. The Ads return home for the first time since Week 1. Farragut (2-3, 1-1) will host Hardin Valley Academy (3-2, 1-1) at Bill Clabo Field. The Hawks and Ads will meet for the first time on the gridiron. Both squads enter the contest hoping to end two-game losing streaks. Farragut lost to Fulton
