Target stays open late for UT freshmen

Target stays open late for UT freshmen

A lot of public places are open later than ever these days, from restaurants to grocery stores. But department stores usually aren't on the list.

One of them in West Knoxville made an exception Thursday for a certain group of people.

Normally the Target on Ray Mears Boulevard near West Town Mall would close at 11 o'clock, but it stayed open an extra hour and a half just for UT freshmen as part of UT's Welcome Week events.

Students arrived on free bus rides from campus, and Target was ready to help them pick up those last-minute college essentials.

Crews demolish parts of Lakeshore Park

Crews demolish parts of Lakeshore Park

City of Knoxville crews were out working near Lakeshore Mental Health Institute on Thursday.

They started digging up the old swimming pool at Lakeshore Park which was used by the mental health institute.

Crews will demolish the pool house and part of the fencing along the greenway. They'll also do some maintenance work in the 110-acre park.

The park will stay open during this time, but the city asks people to be aware of the work.

Farragut student earns perfect ACT score

Farragut student earns perfect ACT score

An East Tennessee high school student scored a perfect score on the ACT.

"It was pretty surprising. Like I knew I had done well but I did not think I was anywhere close to perfect," said Chris Buckman.

The Farragut High School senior got a 36 on the college admissions exam. He took the ACT in April while he was still a junior.

To put Chris' perfect score into perspective, only one percent of all high school students nationwide who take the ACT get a 36.

Maintenance underway at Lakeshore Park

City crews are set to begin some maintenance and demolition projects at Lakeshore Park.

Within the next couple of weeks, crews are set to demolish the long-closed swimming pool and pool house once used by Lakeshore Mental Health Institute.

They will also remove some sections of fencing along the greenway and perform landscaping maintenance.

The park will remain open, but visitors will need to watch out for crews at work.

The state closed the Lakeshore Mental Health Institute in June, but continues to provide some services at facilities on the property.
