    Agency presents sport fishing changes for 2012

    The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency (TWRA) Fisheries Division has announced its proposed 2012 fishing regulation changes that will be presented to the Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission (TWRC) in October.

    The TWRA made its initial proposals at the Aug. 24-25 meeting of the TWRC in Kingsport and discussed the possibility of a fishing guide license during this meeting, as well.

    The following are TWRA’s proposed changes for 2012:

  • Cougars fall 38-14 to rival AC

    Pre-game fireworks. Rowdy home crowd. Black jerseys.

    Campbell County High School’s football team pulled out all the stops Friday night to try and knock District 3 rival Anderson County off its high horse.

    But the Mavericks (1-0 district, 1-2 overall) stuck to their guns and barely flinched while extending their win streak over the Cougars (0-1 district, 1-2 overall) to five in a row.

  • Scouting Report — Campbell...

    The Cougars had a minor setback last week against AC, but are eager to prove themselves against a much-improved Karns team. Senior quarterback Tuffy Shoupe continues to carry the load for Campbell County, but will have to have help if the Cougars are to be successful this season.

    Karns has a 2-1 record while playing on the road the first three weeks of the season. That includes impressive victories over Corbin, Ky., 22-21; and Clinton, 28-0. The Beavers’ only loss was to South-Doyle, 7-0, in the season opener.

  • Shoupe leads Cougars past Jets,...

    After sputtering to a season opening loss the previous week, Campbell County High School’s new spread offense roared to life Friday night in the home opener against Cumberland County.
