    LaFollette Press:

    Boy Scout Troop 310, charted by Cedar Hill Baptist Church - LaFollette would like to thank everyone who supported its recent fundraiser, especially Lowe's and Wal-Mart.  Also a special thanks to Mark's Pharmacy in Lake City for an unexpected generous contribution.  Funds raised will go towards purchasing equipment for the troop.

  • Pet population is growing at shelter

       The animal shelter provides a much needed service to Campbell County residents. It serves all of the city municipalities as well as the outlying county areas where they patrol for strays and also respond to requests to resolve pet issues. 

    In many cases, lost dogs and cats end up at the shelter enabling them to be returned to the owner. 

    The September 2010 report shows that five animals were returned to their owner. 

  • Faithful Words



    Back from the dead


    “. . . be renewed in the spirit of your minds, and put on the new nature, created after the likeness of God in true righteousness and holiness . . .” (See Ephesians 4:17-32).

    From The Mountain

    Fall will be upon us by the time you read this.  The Autumnal Equinox is, I note, listed differently on the 2010 calendars I have hanging in the library.  The Tennessee Wildlife calendar lists the 23rd as the first day of fall while some other almanac type calendars list it as beginning on the 22nd.  I looked on the Internet and also found this discrepancy among various sources.  I’ll stick with my most trusted source, The Old Farmer’s Almanac, which proclaims that fall begins at 11:09 p.m. EST.

  • Technology in the Classroom

  • Hope continues to walk on


    I have written many columns during my years at the LaFollette Press.

    Some have practically written themselves. Others have been a struggle to get anything on paper.

    This is one of those columns.

    It is hard to write about someone who you admire and love like a sister. The difficulty is not in knowing they will read your words. The problem comes in finding the right words to describe their selflessness and dedication to a cause.
