Talk of the Town

By: Martha Woodward

Congratulations for an outstanding performance to Dan Andrews, local photographer, who was the guest speaker for the Northside Kiwanis Club on Wednesday, October 16. Andrews spoke about his life as a photographer and his membership into the Country Music Association which has allowed him to meet numerous country music stars. He also spoke about his personal struggle with Parkinson’s Disease and how he became involved in the foundation started by Michael J. Fox, who is probably the most famous person ever stricken with this disease.


Andrews said that one of the highlights of his life was when he was assigned to cover a story at the White House in Washington, D.C. where he met President Obama. Andrews’ presentation was well-received with many of the club members saying that he was one of their “best ever” speakers. Andrews is highly regarded locally as one of the best photographers in this area. He is also valued for the brave way he has faced a serious disease.


Congratulations also goes out to Toni Erin Penery who was hired this week as an acupuncturist for a medical clinic in Oklahoma City. Penery most recently graduated from the Academy for the Five Element Acupuncture in Gainesville, Florida. She is also a graduate Bearden High School and the University of Tennessee.  Her new position begins November 18. She promises to never cheer for the Sooners, but to remain a faithful Vol fan.

From AOL: What are the five best selling cars and trucks in America for 2013? 1. Ford F Series Trucks; 2. Chevy Silverado; 3. Toyota Camry; 4. Ram 1500 Chrysler; 5. Honda Accord; 6. Toyota Corolla; 7. Honda Civic; 8. Ford Escape; 9. Honda CRV; and 10. Nissan Altima.


Gotta say and “Great job!” to the Tennessee Vols Football team for Saturday’s big win over South Carolina. They truly pulled victory from the jaw of defeat with a field goal in the last 3 seconds of the game. It’s great to be a Tennessee Vol.
