    We have a new bird dog at the homestead.  The English Setter is named
    Alice.  She’s four months old now and absolutely full of life.  She has an
    extraordinarily sweet disposition and has about the softest fur I’ve ever
    stroked.  Alice seemed a little dense in the brain department to start out.  I
    feel she’s making some progress in the last couple of weeks however.

     Editor,

    LaFollette Press:

    I have been looking for work for the last two months. I filled out some applications, most applications have to be filled out online. I even drove to Knoxville many times as well. One day on the hottest days of the year, on my way home from searching for work in Knoxville, I had a flat tire.

     Editor,

    LaFollette Press:

    We have been taking in abandoned dogs for over a year now. Adoption count is 50 plus. My husband and I use our social security and retirement income to feed and vet all the dogs in our care. That comes to a lot of money.

    Our urgent need at this time is to enclose a 20x20 metal carport so they have a clean and dry place to be in. The kennels would then be put together and an exercise area made.

  • Commission's spending leaves coffers empty

       Robbing Peter to pay Paul is a time honored budgeting method. But what happens when Peter has already been held up? That is the circumstance the new crop of county commissioners is facing after their   spent nearly all of the discretionary money set aside for the commission in the 2010-11 fiscal year.

    On the front page of today’s Press is a story detailing the last minute spending habits of the outgoing county commissioners.

    LaFollette Press:

    My name is Betty Leach, I was born at LaFollette Hospital, grew up and lived in this county all of my life.

    I have recently had the unfortunate experience of becoming involved with an area social services agency and I have to say there are no words to describe it. I have worked with the public in the medical community for over 25 years, paid my fair share of taxes, and hopefully I have helped a few people along the way.
