May seeks NBC’s AGT

Bearden High School art and photography teacher Vicki May was intrigued, but unsure, when her sister suggested she try out for the Knoxville auditions of “America’s Got Talent” late last year. A vocal artist who currently serves as a member of the worship team at Faith Promise Church and also is lead singer for the local ’80s cover band “Vinyl Tap,” the try-outs were not on her radar until her sister suggested it. “She has always been a big supporter of mine, and when she found out they were coming she encouraged me to try out,” said May, who was a bit skittish about the show’s preliminary audition, held locally Nov. 15 in Knoxville Convention Center. That audition was one of dozens held throughout the country — and the first one ever in Knoxville — as precursors of auditions that will be recorded for national broadcasting when the popular NBC variety show begins its new season in May.

Farragut Gateway, located at the corner of Kingston Pike and South Campbell Station Road, is in its final stages of construction. Paul Schaffer, a partner with First Farragut Development, LLC, which is developing the property that will include a drive-through Starbucks, said he expects Starbucks to open Thursday, Feb. 7. adding he expects a spring or early summer opening for the rest of the site. Schaffer said the only work remaining at Starbucks is signage and a screen on the roof to cover the HVAC unit. The development is comprised of 12,000 square feet in two separate buildings, with Starbucks taking up 2,200 square feet. “I think it’s going to be a really nice space,” he said, adding the development will include a park-like patio for people to gather.
