    By Carolyn EvansThe town of Farragut may be

    relatively new as towns go, but what came before from the vil-lage of Concord to Civil War bat-tles to the agricultural community is rich in history.

    Capturing that history has be-

    come an interesting pastime for Farragut resident and Farragut Folklife Museum committee chair Steve Stow. Under the direction of museum coordinator Julia Bar-ham, Stow has collected 25 to 30 one-hour video recordings of Far-ragut area residents who have his-

    tory to share. He still has a list of future interviewees waiting for him.

    We started with Barbra Beeler who worked at the museum for many years, says Barham. She was a docent here for us and a committee chair. Shes a wealth of

    historical information on the area. Then we started trying to get peo-ple recorded on a variety of topics the village of Concord, Farragut High School, the establishment of the town of Farragut.

    Signs and landscaping top quiet BOMA meetingBy Sherri Gardner Howell

    In Farragut, there always seems to be something brewing about signs.

    Mike Mitchell was at the Farra-gut Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting on Thursday with one of the towns new informational signs on zoning changes in hand. He got

    it off the ground near Brixworth subdivision, and he was returning it to the town, but not before he used it to make his point: The sign is too hard to read from the street.

    It was a return performance for Mitchell, who spoke fi rst about the signs the week before at the Farra-gut Municipal Planning Committee

    meeting. The MPC wouldnt let him load his pictures of the sign into the computer to give a visual of what he considers the problem, so, this time, he just brought along a sign.

    In the end, all was friendly and cordial, with Community Develop-ment Director Mark Shipley agree-ing, as he had at the MPC meeting,

    that the signs needed some work.He didnt agree to go back to theold black and white Use On Re-view signs, but did invite Mitchellto participate in the process of re-vamping the new ones.

    Church sponsors block party

    Close to 100 members and guests turned out for the Far-ragut Christian Church Block Party on Sunday at the church home, 138 Admiral Rd. While adults enjoyed conversations at shaded tables, the children did what children do best: Ran, jumped, scooted, skipped, tossed Frisbees and rode bikes all around the grassy lawn and church parking lot.
