• To the resident that is concerned about holiday decorations and lights in Farragut — are you serious? Farragut has the most beautiful and professional lights and decorations anywhere in Knox County. I’m sorry you are disappointed that Farragut is not represented on Parkside Drive, but perhaps you should drive a bit further to Campbell Station Road and then ask Knox County why they are so underrepresented with just swags and a handful of trees. Town of Farragut, you do an awesome job decorating for the holidays.

• Are there plans to handle the additional traffic based on the new apartment complex being built at Watt Road and Kingston Pike? It is a major backup problem during typical work-commuting hours.

• Thank you to the Farragut community for the delightful Christmas parade. What a joy it was to be a spectator and to experience the lights and happenings surrounding so many of our community groups at Christmas. We all hope that this will become an annual tradition, only to grow and magnify our blessed community. How blessed we are to have so many wonderful schools and community groups that want to celebrate this special holiday.
