  • Funding cuts at federal hatcheries could devastate area trout fisheries

    Proposed budget cuts at two federal fish hatcheries have state fisheries managers scrambling to find ways to minimize the impact to Tennessee trout anglers.

  • Cougars take the high road

    Two weeks of pessimism gave way to at least a day of optimism Friday morning at L. Hope Dossett Stadium.

    Perhaps the most tumultuous spring in Campbell County High School football history culminated in the Blue and Orange Game. 

    Never mind the score (for the record, the Blue won 21-10), the single-most important thing the Cougars are taking into a long summer of conditioning and weight training is that they have been united in purpose by an off-season of adversity and misfortune.
