  • Mixed emotions flow as old...



    JACKSBORO-As the cougar murals in John R.W. Brown Gymnasium were covered up, many Campbell County High School alumni had mixed emotions about the subject.

    The murals, which have been inside the gym for more than 30 years, were covered up last Monday to make way for a new mural to be painted by Lance Albright.

    One thing everyone could agree on: Albright is the man for the job.

    As the Campbell County murals come off the walls, it brings mixed emotions to many.

    For me personally, it’s the same boat.

    Things are continually changing, going from their old ways to new. However, sometimes those need to happen.

    It’s something we don’t think about.

    How many times have different players, fans and faculty walked into John R.W. Brown Gymnasium and only glanced at the murals?

    They’ve become a fixture – something we rarely notice as we walk into the gymnasium.

    JACKSBORO-Out with the old, and in with the new.

    Campbell County High School is well under way, as they are revamping John R.W. Brown Gymnasium.

    “We’re very excited,” Campbell County principal Jamie Wheeler said. “I don’t think it’s been painted – the top part of the gym – I don’t know how long it’s been. I’ve heard it’s never been painted, so we’re really excited about it.”

    NORRIS–More than 30 volunteers and twice as many children turned out Saturday for the 11th annual Kids Fish Free Day event at the Miller Island river access area below Norris Dam.
    The Clinch River Chapter of Trout Unlimited sponsors the event the first Saturday of June every year.
    Kids had a chance to put on a pair of waders and fish for trout with the help of adult chaperones. They also got to tie their own fishing flies, take boat rides and learn about aquatic life and river conservation.

    It’s been said time and time again.
    “Kids are too wrapped up in their video games, and they need to get outside.”
    However, should that adage be just for kids?
    This past weekend, I went camping at Fall Creek Falls.
    Camping in a tent under the stars, smelling themountain air and above all, having no cell phone service.
    A weekend without cell phone distraction, Facebook and Twitter.
    To say the least, it was way better than most people would think.
    To me, getting outside is something that is relaxing.
