farragutpress plans ‘Progress’ edition

Progress, noun: 1) Movement, as toward a goal; advance. 2) Development or growth. 3) Steady improvement, as of a society or civilization.

The farragutpress will publish its first Progress section in 10 years this fall.

“Progress is something that has been nearly a decade in coming. The farragutpress used to do this on a yearly basis and stopped in 2000 with the new millennium,” farragutpress editor and publisher Dan Barile said.

“We felt that after 10 years, it would be good to see what’s happened in Farragut and the surrounding area over that time,” he added.

The Progress edition will focus on four main topic areas: business, real estate, community and the town of Farragut.

“A lot of exciting things have happened,” Barile said.

In the past 10 years, subdivisions have sprung up and Turkey Creek has become a major shopping destination.

“You have the new Ingles, the Kroger Marketplace, Turkey Creek and the Public Market — all exciting growth in the area,” Barile said.

And that type of growth will be the focus of the Progress section, themed “Full Speed Ahead” after Adm. James David Glasgow Farragut’s famous declaration, “Damn the torpedoes; full speed ahead,” during the Battle of Mobile Bay.

“We’re borrowing from the Admiral and our theme is ‘Full Speed Ahead,’” Barile said.

“We’ll be looking at the growth and recovery from the recent recession,” he added.

Your company’s story could be told in Progress.

The farragutpress is looking for businesses to support this important look at the history and future of the area.
