A benefit golf tournament will be held at Whittle Springs Golf Course on May 23rd at 8 am with a shotgun start.  Lunch will be provided.  The cost is $40 per player.  The tournament is for a man named Chris Janeway.  He is a 41 year old father to three girls.  He has had 3 heart attacks and many complications including but not limited to congestive heart failure, a-fib, he had less than 15 % of his heart left and the doctors here in Knoxville told him that there wasn’t anything else they could do.  He went to Vanderbilt to see if he was a candidate for the LVAD (left ventricle assistive device) which works as a bridge to keep him alive until he can get on the heart transplant list.  He was chosen and has since had the procedure and is in therapy.  He has to stay in Nashville for 6 weeks to make sure there are no complications.  His sister in law came from Montana to stay with him.  The reason for the tournament is that he can go on the heart transplant list after the 6 weeks but has to have 10,000 in the bank for rejection medication before they will put him on the list.  If you have any questions please feel free to call me, my name is Dan Hatmaker and you can reach me at or 865-318-9710.

There will be a thousand women who gather for the upcoming Fresh Grounded Faith women's event in Clinton, TN. The event is hosted by one church but presented by a dozen co-host churches from the region May 1 & 2, 2015  The motto of Fresh Grounded Faith is “One Event. Many Churches. For Every Woman.” "It's inspiring to see so many different churches coming together in unity to bring this event to the area," says founder and featured speaker Jennifer Rothschild, who became blind at age 15. "The process of putting on a Fresh Grounded Faith event breaks down traditional denominational barriers, and brings women together. There are over a hundred volunteers from these different churches working together to bring this event to the area.” It’s the process that empowers women from the area to be focused on one goal - to create a life-changing experience for women. Using teams and team leaders, women have been meeting for months preparing for the big day. Local Conference Coordinator, Sid Brewer, says “It's a beautiful picture to see the Bride of Christ working together to impact the lost and disciple the redeemed. We are blessed to be partnering with Jennifer and her team from Fresh Grounded Faith to bring an incredible event where women can be revived, refreshed and renewed in their walk with Christ, all for the glory of God.” When the day arrives there will be over 120 volunteers present for the volunteers-only meet and greet getting their marching orders for the weekend. Every one of the volunteers plays an important role in the success of the event. “Listen, I may be on the platform in the spotlight with an award winning author and worship leader, but let me tell you, it’s the women who will pour you a cup of coffee, greet you with a smile, and point you to the restrooms that will set the tone for this event,” says Rothschild. “It’s all about creating an atmosphere where every woman feels welcome. We’ve got women in attendance that have a deep and rich faith, but we also have women who have a small cup of faith, or no faith experience at all. Everyone is welcome - we want to meet women where they are. We’re just real women wanting a refreshing experience that’s packed with relevant truth for everyday living,” Rothschild says. The event is being held at Second Baptist Church and will feature popular Bible teacher Jennifer Rothschild, best-selling author Vicki Courtney, and Dove Award winning worship leader and guest artist Meredith Andrews. The event will take place at Second Baptist Church, 777 Public Safety Drive, Clinton, TN 37716.

MEDIC Regional Blood Center is making an emergency appeal for blood donations.  MEDIC says in the last week, there's been a spike in the amount of blood needed by local hospitals. Along with the demand, there's been a drop in donations due to the weeks of ice and snow, contributing to the shortage.  While Type O negative blood donors are needed immediately, inventory is low on all blood types.
