• Cedar Hills Golf Club finished repairs to the golf course. For the past ten months, Cedar Hills has been repairing sewer lines. Now that the work is finished, mesh tarps blocking the creek have been removed and the construction vehicles are off the property. The paths will be repaved over the coming weeks and the golf carts will be replaced in August. Cedar Hills is located at 100 Beals Chapel Road in Lenoir City. Call 865-986-6521 for more information.

• Ascend Marine Inc., 10441 Dutchtown Road, engineered the BlueNet Chain Counter. The wireless computer based system, comprised of a sensor, transmitter and display, monitors the length of anchor rode deployed from boats. The weather-resistant sensor works in conjunction with a small magnet that is installed on the chain wheel or capstan. As the anchor is deployed or retrieved, the sensor senses each time it passes and accurately measures the length of rope leaving or returning to the boat. The wireless transmitter is connected to the sensor. At the heart of the chain counter is the BlueNet Mobile Control Head that wirelessly receives the chain or rope information from the transmitter and displays it on the monitor. To find available dealers, go to www.ascendmarine.com or call 800-923-2817.

The AASM accreditation process involves detailed inspection of a center’s facility and staff, including an evaluation of testing procedures, patient contacts and physician training. Additionally, the facility’s goals must be clearly stated and include plans for positively affecting the quality of medical care in the community it serves. Currently, the AASM accredits 825 sleep medicine centers and laboratories across the country. The AASM is a professional membership organization dedicated to assuring quality care for patients with sleep disorders, promoting the advancement of sleep research, and providing public and professional education.
