    State game officials tweak
    deer carcass importation law

    The Tennessee Wildlife Resources Commission (TWRC) has made an amendment to a proclamation that was established in May concerning the addition of states from which deer carcasses are prohibited for importation unless bones were removed to aid in the prevention of chronic wasting disease (CWD) in Tennessee.

  • Cougars drop heartbreaker, 21-14

    Frustrating.
    In a word, that sums up the first two weeks of the season for Campbell County High School’s football team.
    The most recent disappointment for the Cougars (0-2 overall) was a 21-14 loss Friday night to visiting White County, a team they beat by 30 points last year while setting school single-game records for interceptions (4) and interceptions returned for touchdowns (2).
    This year looked to be more of the same until Campbell County blew a 14-point lead in the final three quarters.

    The drought is over for Jellico’s middle school football team.
    Austin Plank scored three touchdowns and Caney Minton scored twice Thursday night as the Blue Devils (1-2 overall) clobbered Episcopal School of Knoxville, 40-0, to snap a losing streak over five years in the making.
    His team leading 32-0 at intermission, Jellico coach Les Stiers began to empty his bench to start the second half.
    “Our kids haven’t had anything like that to celebrate in a long time,’ said Stiers.

  • Opening day of soccer play

    Saturday was the 2010 season kickoff for Campbell County Soccer Association teams.
    Games began at 9 a.m. sharp and continued into the early afternoon hours. Hundreds of people braved the late August heat to come and watch their children and grandchildren play.
    Approximately 300 kids are registered for league competition this year.
    “We’re off to a good start,” said CCSA spokesperson Bryan Horton.

    Jellico High School’s football team squandered enough scoring opportunities Friday night to win by two touchdowns.
    Instead, the Blue Devils ended up losing 12-6 to North Greene, a team they defeated last season for one of their two victories of 2009.
    Tyler Brummett caught a 28-yard touchdown pass to cap a 60-yard opening drive for Jellico (0-2 overall), but the Blue Devils failed on the conversion attempt.
    Jellico had the ball three more times inside the Huskies’ 30-yard line during the first half only to come away empty-handed.

  • Jellico can’t keep pace with ’...

    For a while Friday night, it looked as though Jellico High School’s football team might be able to give rival Williamsburg, Ky. a run for its money this year.
    The Blue Devils had rallied from a 20-7 deficit with a touchdown and successful point-after kick with a little over 4 1/2 minutes left in the first half.
    But the Yellowjackets got stronger as the game wore on and continued to put points on the scoreboard.
    Williamsburg ended up routing the host Blue Devils, 68-22, scoring 30 more points than it did in last year’s game.
