  • Runnin' Riley Faulkner

    It may have been an unusually cold day on Monday afternoon, but Riley Faulkner stayed hot.

    The third grade runner has run six races this season on the elementary cross country team, and he’s taken the first place finish in all six.

    In Monday’s region meet, Riley Faulkner posted a 5:54, which was good enough to overtake Davis Clem, a fifth grader in the Episcopal School.

  • Eagles keep Egg Bowl trophy

    “This is no longer a game. This is a war.”

    Jacksboro defensive specialist, Jared Ray said it best last Thursday night as the Eagles took on LaFollette in the 12th annual Egg Bowl.

    Jacksboro’s stingy defense managed to stop a quick witted Owl offense in order to take the game, 28-8.

    “He kind of summed it up there,” Eagle head coach Mike Miller said. “If we had one game that the boys wanted to be sure they won, it would be this one. That’s just kids.”

  • Cougars prove fight against Central

    The Cougars may have traveled to Dan Y. Boring Stadium, but there was certainly nothing boring about their game.

    Facing off with one of Tennessee’s top running backs in JaJuan Stinson, Campbell County had a rough hill to climb. The speedy 5-foot-7 junior was made out to be 12-foot tall after having rushed 416 yards the week before against Clinton. That number ranks as the seventh highest mark ever posted in the state.

    Against the Cougars, however, he only managed 16 yards in the first half as the Bobcats took the win, 21-7.

  • New water feature to adorn Freeman Park

    At Tuesday night’s meeting, the LaFollette City Council approved installing a concrete water feature at Freeman Park.
    “I think it would make it a show place,” interim city administrator Cade Sexton said. “I think it would be something that would give downtown (an amicable) appearance.”
    In September, the city removed a fountain. At the workshop on Sept. 24, Bill Bibler from Paradigm Concrete Artisans presented the council with the idea of installing a concrete water feature.

  • First Baptist Church LaFollette to celebrate 131 years

    This weekend, First Baptist Church of LaFollette will celebrate 131 years as a church.
    “The church was organized under the name of Big Creek Gap Church, December 1881, with 27 members,” Alfred Saulsberry said in History of First Baptist Church. “During the 1890s, they worshipped at Douglas Chapel (located in the area of West Beech Street now) dividing the time of worship with the Methodists.
