 Editor,

LaFollette Press:

I am looking for the parents and siblings of Ida Wright Goans. Ida was born and married in Anderson County to James Goans, came to LaFollette in early 1900, divorced in 1913 but stayed here until 1925. Who were her parents? Any help you can give me will be appreciated. Please contact me at (865)436-4536 or email GRConnor@aol.com.

 Editor,

LaFollette Press:

I am happy to read that the LaFollette Press is moving to a subscription only outlet of online media. I enjoy reading the LaFollette Press on my computer for free since I am attending school in Cookeville. However, it is time that this newspaper is only available with a subscription.

The print media is moving to digital rapidly. I know the LaFollette Press is not going to go away, but it should be credited fiscally if it is read. Buying a digital subscription should not alter the readers’ from reading the press. The readers should appreciate the newspaper advancing with technology.

Sincerely,

Karla Hammac

Editor,

LaFollette Press:

How come the city of LaFollette electric rates are so high? I recently checked the rates of Powell Valley, Jellico, along with LaFollette for comparison and this is the rate quote for Feb. 15: LaFollette for 1,000 k.w.h., $108.45; Jellico for 1,000 k.w.h., $85.35 and Powell Valley for 1,000 k.w.h., $84.40. As you can see my bill for 4000 k.w.h. in LaFollette would be $433.80 in Powell Valley it would be only $337.60, a savings of $96.20.

The city rates are so out of line with the other local utilities, and my question is how come, not to mention the fact that the water rates are lower for the city of LaFollette than the rest of Campbell County.
