Board approves and fails new ordinances in Jellico

By Natasha Colbaugh

While ordinances affecting residents were approved during the Jellico Board of Mayor and Aldermen meeting last Thursday, another affecting beer board members failed to gain support.

Several fires have left residences hazardous in the community, according to Mayor Les Stiers.

An ordinance requiring property owners to repair fire damage within 45 days was approved by the Jellico Board.

 “There was no ordinance that makes people clean up their property,” said Stiers. “This puts some teeth in there.”

“The inspector inspected it and told the guy he was eight feet off the line,” said Wayne Wilson who represented his father at the meeting. “The issue is that it was okay to build, it’s on our property and they gave them a permit to build it.”

A garage connected to the house is being constructed on the Wilson property, according to the family.

State of Tennessee files suit against county mayor

By Natasha Colbaugh

A lawsuit was filed by the state of Tennessee against all area municipalities and county officials on Dec. 9.

The state is suing in relation to Dan Murray, director of environmental services as of October 2010. Murray was unable to conduct administrative tasks due to alleged interference by county officials, the suit claims.

In 1992, county commissioners adopted a single-county municipal solid waste management system. A board of 15 members would oversee the activities of the solid waste region as mandated by the state.

A memorable military Christmas

By Natasha Colbaugh

Some would say 20-years-old is still a child, but it’s different in the military.

A 20-year-old is expected to be as brave and strong as a person twice his age. At least that’s how it was for LaFollette native Dwight Goodman.

December 1965 carries lasting memories for Goodman. He turned 20-years-old on the sixth, and left for Germany the next day. He ran a mission down the Adriatic against the former Yugoslavia air defenses, said Goodman.

His team continued flying into Turkey where they began a series of intelligence gathering missions.
