A round of applause is warranted for the Fighting Irish of Knoxville Catholic High School for winning its first state football championship in the school’s 76-year history.

The game was hard fought and filled with action. Unfortunately, when games of this magnitude are played, injuries occur. It is our hope that those players who suffered injuries in the game have a speedy, full recovery.

It’s not often that farragutpress devotes its entire front page to sporting events, but in this case it is a win worth commemorating.

Congratulations to head coach Mark Pemberton and the entire Knox Catholic team and staff.

As kudos are being handed out, it is only fitting that a round of applause be directed toward Darryl Smith, engineer for the town of Farragut, for acknowledging an error in the signage at the intersection of Peterson Road and Kingston Pike.

Smith, see story on page 6, has assured farragutpress the existing “No Turn On Red” sign will be replaced with a “Yield For Pedestrians” sign.

Smith also noted that directional arrows on Peterson Road would be updated to direct traffic into the proper lane for passing through the intersection to access farragutpress and the Ingles shopping complex. A completion date has not been released.

A final note: farragutpress currently is asking for area school children to submit “Letters to Santa.” This is a practice farragutpress has done for several years.

This year’s letters (physical copies) will be bundled together and taken to a nearby Macy’s department store to participate in its “Make A Wish” promotion. Each letter received by Macy’s in its Santa mailbox receives a dollar donation from Macy’s to the charity. So, each of your letters is helping someone, somewhere.
