  • State bills would reduce foreclosure notices-

    A bill making its way through the Tennessee Legislature would give homeowners less advance warning before their homes are sold at a foreclosure auction.

     Editor,

    LaFollette Press:

    The Friends of Norris Dam State Park want to publicly recognize and thank the Campbell County Commissioners who voted on April 18 to not support the proposed Lighthouse Lodge and Convention Center.

    It is very reassuring to know we still have elected officials who will listen to the will of the people and act accordingly.

  • Just because citizen input is curbed doesn’t mean communication has ceased

       At last week’s county commission meeting Mayor William Baird announced citizens would no longer be given time to address the commission at its meetings. He did say citizens could continue to address the commission at its workshop the week before the meeting.

    Those who want to talk will be given five minutes. Baird initially proposed three but commissioners voted to allow constituents five minutes at the microphone.

    Seems fair enough.

    Hey coupon clippers we are being clipped ourselves.

    Not many coupon clippers know you can use a store coupon and a manufacturer’s coupon at the same time.

    They tell you your not supposed to, but if they’re honest you can.

  • Did board of education complete an exhaustive search?

    Did board of education complete an exhaustive search?

     

    Before I begin let me offer two disclaimers.

    The first is I think Donny Poston is a fine, Christian man. My next disclaimer is my children attend the Christian Academy of Campbell County.

    That being said the Campbell County Board of Education didn’t appear to conduct a truly exhaustive search in its quest for the next director of schools.
