After 6 years, The Pizza Kitchen revived

The Pizza Kitchen is back with a new location near Farragut. Owner Travis Redmon opened the business Oct. 21 at the former Empire Pizza location, 10420 Kingston Pike in Lovell Heights shopping center just east of Town limits. “It’s been fun to see former customers rediscover us,” he said. The restaurant offers pizzas more on the gourmet spectrum. “It’s the New York-style with flair,” Redmon said. “We have your basics, from pepperoni and Mama Mia, which would almost be like a supreme, to off-the-grid items, which would be like a Thai pie, which is a peanut sauce-based pizza — it’s incredible. We also have the pesto swirl, which is (in our) top three favorites. “So, we mix up the classics, with some off-the-grid items people love,” he added. “We’ve got a pumpkin pizza right now that’s our special.” The Pizza Kitchen’s fare also leans more toward a healthier choice.

Students teach local leaders in FHS setting

Education was turned on its head Tuesday morning, Nov. 5, at Farragut High School, where students were teaching programming skills to elected officials. Groups of students from seven Knox County Schools gave more than 30 Farragut, Knox County and state-elected officials lessons on coding as part of PolitiCode, a fun-filled half hour giving officials a unique insight into not just future technology but what students are learning today. “It’s happening now,” said Brandon Bruce, founding member of Knoxville Technology Council. “These are our future entrepreneurs. This is our future workforce … the talent is all in this room.” Officials went from room to room where students from FHS, HVA, Northshore Elementary, Dogwood Elementary, Vine Middle, Holston Middle and South-Doyle High School interacted with them on exercises.
