  • Cemetery tour, ghost walk, to entertain history buff

    Addison Bowman Cemetery will come to life on Oct. 20 when re-enactors portray the lives of the cemetery’s residents.

    Joe Stephens of the Campbell County Historic Society has led a cemetery tour for the society each fall for several years. This year’s tour will be a little different from years past in how visitors experience the reenactments. Instead of the entire tour moving together from grave to grave, attendees will be free to move around among the actors.

  • Animal advocates outline shelter requests, plans for volunteer program

    Local animal advocates came to Monday’s county commission meeting with nine ideas about how to work with the staff at the Adrion Baird animal shelter.  Additionally, they outlined eight ways in which volunteers could assist the shelter.

    “Our organization would like to work with commissioners and shelter staff,” said Michelle Davis, local animal rescuer and transporter.

  • Caryville plans could put 100 to work

    One hundred people will be put to work as part of two projects in Caryville.

    The board of mayor and aldermen unanimously approved two motions to ask Caryville-Jacksboro Utilities to relocate water, sewer and fire lines with the developer for the projects paying all costs.

    Caryville Mayor Robert Stooksbury was unable to reveal the name of the developer.

    The first project will move lines at a project site off of Exit 141. Up to 75 people could be employed there.

  • Monetary benefits to Campbell County veterans continues to increase

      For the sixth year in a row, the Veteran’s Affairs Office increased the amount of money it has given to area veterans.

    “We break a record every year,” said Kevin Walden, director of the Campbell County Veterans Affairs Office. “It’s exciting to be on top as usual, and we give God the glory for it. It’s not us, it’s Him in us.”

    Since 2005, the amount of money the VA has given to veterans in Campbell County has increased.

  • Fields of Faith prompts students to arise

    “What if we are the generation that we are waiting for, and what if the time is now?”

    As the sun sank behind the mountains, the sky turned a beautiful orange and gold as around 1,500 people took those words to heart in L. Hope Dossett Stadium during Fields of Faith last Wednesday night.

    Emotions ran high as the Spirit flowed from person to person as Roger Woods, chaplin for the University of Tennessee, brought his message to the group. His message was simple, saying “Arise,” and as Madea would say, “Don’t be scerred.”

  • Runnin' Riley Faulkner

    It may have been an unusually cold day on Monday afternoon, but Riley Faulkner stayed hot.

    The third grade runner has run six races this season on the elementary cross country team, and he’s taken the first place finish in all six.

    In Monday’s region meet, Riley Faulkner posted a 5:54, which was good enough to overtake Davis Clem, a fifth grader in the Episcopal School.

  • Eagles keep Egg Bowl trophy

    “This is no longer a game. This is a war.”

    Jacksboro defensive specialist, Jared Ray said it best last Thursday night as the Eagles took on LaFollette in the 12th annual Egg Bowl.

    Jacksboro’s stingy defense managed to stop a quick witted Owl offense in order to take the game, 28-8.

    “He kind of summed it up there,” Eagle head coach Mike Miller said. “If we had one game that the boys wanted to be sure they won, it would be this one. That’s just kids.”

  • Cougars prove fight against Central

    The Cougars may have traveled to Dan Y. Boring Stadium, but there was certainly nothing boring about their game.

    Facing off with one of Tennessee’s top running backs in JaJuan Stinson, Campbell County had a rough hill to climb. The speedy 5-foot-7 junior was made out to be 12-foot tall after having rushed 416 yards the week before against Clinton. That number ranks as the seventh highest mark ever posted in the state.

    Against the Cougars, however, he only managed 16 yards in the first half as the Bobcats took the win, 21-7.
