Bruce and Diana Knobloch had their flights booked for their August trip to New Orleans for the annual Satchmo Festival honoring Louis Armstrong.
But their August trip to the Crescent City took a turn of its own before they could get up in the air.
It started with a late July phone call to the Roane County United Way office where Diana is director.
The call was from “Miss Sadie” Butler, a 94-year-old who, with her son, Joe, landed in Rockwood as one of the last fugitives evacuated from Hurricane Katrina.
