Washburn fire leaves family homeless
TRACEY WOLFE
Managing Editor
WASHBURN – A Washburn family was
left homeless following a fire at their
home, March 31.
Lori Hensley said she and her six
children were in the home on Johnson
Loop Road when the fire began about 9
a.m., but all were able to get out of the
home safely.
Lori’s husband, Randy Hensley,
is currently a full-time student at
Tennessee Technology Center and was
not home at the time of the fire.
Lori said the fire began in a bedroom
and she attempted to extinguish it, but
smoke quickly filled the room and she
decided to get her children out and call
911.

RUTLEDGE – Representatives from groups
who participated in the January 22 Grainger
County Point In Time (PIT) homeless count,
coordinated by the Tennessee Valley Coalition
for the Homeless (TVCH), gathered March
31, at the Agriculture Pavilion in Rutledge,
to reflect upon the results of the study
and discuss the next steps in addressing
homelessness in the area.
The meeting was conducted by Ed
Goodman from the TVCH and Donna Kitts of
the Grainger County Mayor’s Office. A number
of representatives from local organizations,
municipalities, and religious groups attended.

RUTLEDGE – Hayley Lewis, the 2015
Miss Tennessee, visited Grainger County
schools March 26, as part of a statewide
tour during her year-long reign.
During a luncheon hosted by
the school system, she said she is
considered to be as holding a state
position. “I’m officially a spokeswoman
for the governor,” she said
She said she will travel more than
80,000 miles to visit nearly 50,000 school
children, teaching character building at
virtually every elementary school in the
state.
She said, “It’s a full-time job and I had
to take a year off from school due to the
commitments.”
But she says what motivates her every
day to visit schools and hospitals is the
impact she makes on children.
“It’s the fact I go into a hospital and

Semi-annual JROTC competition held at GHS
ROXANE REED
Special to Grainger Today
RUTLEDGE – The Grainger High
School JROTC Battalion held its semiannual JROTC competition Thursday,
April 2. Due to weather conditions the
competition had to be moved indoors,
but the event was still successful, as
evidenced by the four teams present
and 165 participants.
Army, Air Force and Marine recruiters
were all present to observe and judge
the event. Carson-Newman ROTC cadets
supported the students and kept records
for the judging. The competition consisted of six
events, including the Color Guard,
Advanced Drill Team, Let1 Drill, Raiders,
Rifle and Exhibition Drill. The description of the events
the students were judged in varied
from presentation of the American
Flag, synchronized routines while in
formation, athletic capabilities, accuracy
in shooting and academic knowledge. One event, the Exhibition Drill, gave
a stellar performance that secured them
first place, a feat not achieved for eight
years. First Sergeant Thacker gave credit
to the students as well as the new rifles
which were purchased solely by booster
club funding. The Battalion Commander,
Austin Southerland, commented that the
Raiders, Color Guard, and Rifle teams all
placed first in the team competition. GHS Cadet Justin Whit placed third in
the individual drill competition in a field
of approximately 80 competitors. The
event was free and open to the public.

BLAINE – The city’s planning
commission rejected a request to close
one road and accept another as a public
street at Monday’s meting.
The request to close Longmire
Lane was not approved after a nearby
property owner objected, saying he
needed access to the road.
James Nicely, who lives on Mountain
Road, said he needs to be able to use the
road to get in and out, especially if he
decides to haul dirt out of his property.
Ray Jones, a member of the planning
commission, also said he had gotten
complaints from people concerned
about the closure.
The property owner who requested
the closure was not present. Jerry
Childers, an alderman and member of
the planning commission, said the man
had appeared before the board of mayor
and aldermen with his request. He said
he had told the board that people used
his road to park and he had to run them
off.
The planning commission also heard
a request to accept Park View Drive as
a public street. All but about 200 feet of
the road is paved.
Jones said he had driven down the
street and it dead ends into a private
residence. He said he felt it needs a
turnaround in order to be a pubic road.
The panel turned down the request,
but said if the homeowners would
pave the gravel portion and build a
turnaround, the request would be
considered again.
In other business, Charlie McKnight
was introduced as the new planning
commission member.
Low-cost vaccinations
available in Grainger County
RUTLEDGE – The Grainger County
Health Department is partnering with
Tri-County Animal Clinic and Dr. Ray’s
Veterinary Housecalls to offer low-cost
rabies vaccinations for dogs and cats,
April 18.
The cost of vaccinations will be $10 for
each dog and $10 for each cat. Tennessee
law requires rabies vaccinations for dogs
and cats.
“Rabies is still a threat in Tennessee
so it’s important that all pet owners
keep their dogs and cats up to date
on rabies vaccinations,” said Russell
Debusk. “Rabies vaccinations protect
people as well as pets, since our pets are
more likely than people are to come into
contact with wild animals that may have
rabies and unvaccinated pets could then
spread the virus to humans.”
Most reported cases of rabies in
Tennessee occur in wild animals. In 2014,
there were 40 cases of rabies reported
across Tennessee, with 30 of those cases
among skunks. Vaccination programs
are a major factor in preventing rabies in
humans. The last human case of rabies
in Tennessee occurred in 2002 when
contact with a bat occurred but was not
reported.
Rabies is transmitted by the saliva of
an infected mammal. Rabid animals are
not always aggressive and may carry
the rabies virus without showing any
recognizable signs of infection. Any
animals that are acting strangely, such
as nocturnal animals seen out in the
daytime, must be regarded as sick and
potentially rabid. If a wild or domestic
animal seems sick or acts strangely
report it to a local animal control agency.
People can be exposed to rabies
when attempting to help, feed or handle
wild animals, so it’s important to avoid
touching any wild animal, especially
common carriers such as bats, skunks,
raccoons and foxes. Anyone who is bitten
or comes into contact with the saliva
of an animal that may be sick or rabid
should contact their healthcare provider.
For more information about the rabies
vaccination clinics call the Grainger
County Health Department at (865) 8285247. Learn more about rabies online
at http://health.state.tn.us/FactSheets/

RUTLEDGE – It’s spring cleaning time in Grainger
County.
The county cleanup takes place Saturday, and all
residents are encouraged help clean up Grainger
County’s roadways, wooded areas, creek beds and the

Walters State
hosting math
and science
camp
MORRISTOWN – Walters State’s
summer math and science camp is
now taking applications. The camp is
designed for current seventh and eighth
graders. The camp is free, but a limited
number of spaces are available.
“This camp introduces students who
have potential in math and science to
the college atmosphere,” explained
Dr. Julianna Gregory, coordinator of
mathematics at the Sevier County
Campus and professor of mathematics
at Walters State.
“After attending this camp, we hope
students will want to take more math
and science classes in high schools and
be better prepared for those courses.
During the camp, students will learn
about the many interesting career
fields needing math and science skills,”
Gregory said.
The math and science camp will be
theld on each of the college’s campus
locations:
• Claiborne County – Monday,
eJuly 20 – Friday, July 24
• Greeneville/Greene County –
Monday, July 13 – Friday, July 17
y • Morristown – Monday, July 13 –
Friday, July 17
e • Sevier County – Monday, July 20 –
dFriday, July 24
Activities are designed to encourage
ystudents to consider careers related to
.math and science. Students will learn
the role math and science play in fields
elike crime scene investigation. Students
also learn how to work with numerical
data to predict outcomes and enjoy a
scavenger hunt.
One of the camp’s ultimate goals is
to attract students from groups that are
under-represented in math and science
fields.
These include students whose parents
rdid not complete college; minorities;
low-income students; and females. The
camp is funded by a state grant and is
part of the college’s diversity and access
initiatives.
Students who do not belong to one of
the underrepresented groups are still
encouraged to apply.
“We consider many factors when
choosing students,” Gregory said.
The camp is open to students in
the college’s 10-county service area:
Grainger, Hawkins, Claiborne, Cocke,
Greene, Hancock, Hamblen, Jefferson,
Sevier and Union Counties. Students
attending the camp will receive a T-shirt
along with lunch and snacks. Students
will also visit the ETSU and General
Shale Natural History Museum and Gray
Fossil Site.
In addition to Gregory, camp leaders
are Elena Owen, assistant professor of
math and physics; Dr. Kay Moneyhun,
coordinator of mathematics at the
Greeneville/Greene County Campus
and professor of mathematics; Dr.
Crystal Rice, associate professor of
mathematics; Dr. Matthew Smith,
assistant professor of chemistry; and
Dr. William Sproat, associate professor
of biology.

Letters to the Editor
Many Thanks
Dear Editor,
Many, many thanks to the Rutledge Volunteer Fire
Department for their actions above and beyond their
call of duty during this winter’s very cold and way too
much snow and ice – a real ole time winter. Our thanks to
you guys for your actions above and beyond the call of
duty during the snow and ice storms we’ve experienced,
your help were, and are, very much appreciated, thank
you.
People, when you see our volunteer firemen dodging
traffic at the red light at 11W and 92 asking for our help
to maintain and operate the volunteer fire department
equipment, please be generous, our city and county
fathers aren’t overly generous in supporting the fire
protection services provided by our friends and
neighbors (i.e. volunteer means no cost to property
owners/taxpayers), our volunteer fire departments.
Please be generous. If you have an old vehicle or other
items sitting in your yard for a year or more, donate/give
it to them. Thank you guys and girls again. God Bless you
and keep safe!
Our many thanks to all the employees at Appalachian
Electric for their dedication and effort in keeping the
electrical power on during all the snow and ice storms.
Your efforts are greatly appreciated, thank you. And

The Red Cross responded to assist
the family immediately following the fire
and Lori said they have already received
donations of clothing from members of
the community.
“It’s just amazing how good-hearted
people in this community are,” she said.
“I can’t describe the blessings we’ve
received from so many different people
we don’t even know.”
Randy, Lori, and their six children,
ranging in age from 11 months old to 14
years old, are currently staying in the
home of a local family. They will remain
there until other arrangements can be
made. Lori said they had insurance on
their home, but they don’t know at this
point what will be covered. She said they
have applied for temporary housing, but
aren’t sure how long it might be before
that might be available, if approved.
She said the only items the family has
an immediate need for are socks and
underwear. They need mens underwear,
size large, and mens socks in shoe size
6-12; boys socks and underwear, in shoe
sizes 9 - 2 1/2 and 3-9 and underwear
sizes 10-12 and 6-8; womens underwear in
sizes 6 and 7 and toddler girls underwear
size 4, and womens socks in shoe size
8-12, girls socks in shoe size 4-10 and
girls socks toddler size 4. Lori said her
husband could also use dress pants for
church in size 38 waist, 32 length.
Despite the loss of the family’s home,
Lori is optimistic. “You wonder why God
allows things like this to happen and I
think it’s to make you a better person. I
believe this will make us better (people)
spiritually and help us to draw closer
to the Lord and help us to be a better
witness to others. It will teach us to draw
strength from the Lord and to use the
Lord, to not give up, and to be faithful
to the Lord,” Lori said. “Whatever we’re
going through it’s for a reason. We’re to
get better and not bitter.”

April is Distracted Driving
Awareness Month
NASHVILLE – April is designated as
national Distracted Driving Awareness
Month. The Tennessee Governor’s
Highway Safety Office, the Tennessee
Department of Transportation, the
Tennessee Department of Safety and
Homeland Security and representatives
from Coca-Cola Bottling Company
Consolidated joined forces to share
a unified message: Thumbs Down to
Texting and Driving.
Those speaking at a press event to
address texting and driving included
Larissa Redmond, whose fiancé Clifton
was killed by a distracted driver in 2012.
“After making the decision to donate
his organs, we met with the police,”
said Redmond. “They explained that
the young lady who hit Clifton had cut
across five lanes of traffic and hit his car
head on. The force of that crash turned
his car around and he was hit again by a
daycare bus driver. The young lady was
texting, the bus driver was talking on the
phone, and my Clifton was dead. Of all
the questions I have about that day, the
question of “Why?” still reigns supreme.”
Following Clifton’s death, Redmond
founded the Collegiate Life Investment
Foundation to educate the high school
and collegiate population about the
dangers of distracted driving.
“It is our job to impact the behavioral
side of traffic safety in Tennessee,”
said Governor’s Highway Safety Office
Director Kendell Poole. “We are excited
to announce our new campaign – Thumbs
Down to Texting and Driving. We will be
doing radio PSAs, online advertisements
and a large social media push throughout
the month of April to increase education
and awareness throughout the state. For
drivers to make good decisions, they
need to be informed about the dangers of
bad decisions.”
The
Tennessee
Department
of
Transportation conducted a distracted
driving pledge sign-up with its employees
during the event. “Distracted driving is an
epidemic that affects all age groups,” said
Tennessee Department of Transportation
Commissioner John Schroer. “Research
shows that it is impossible for the brain
to multitask. If you are texting, if you are
eating, if you are entering an address into
your GPS, you aren’t doing the one thing
we need you to be doing: driving safely.”
Grant Kerr, Risk Control Manager
for
Coca-Cola
Bottling
Company
Consolidated, attended the event to
announce their company’s involvement
in the campaign. “Our employees are
our family, and so many of them spend
the majority of their time on the road. We
reached out to the Governor’s Highway
Safety Office a few months ago to discuss
different ways we could communicate
safety messages. This is the first of many
campaigns we will be taking part in to
increase the safety of our staff.”
According to the Department of Safety
and Homeland Security, there were
20,916 crashes involving a distracted
driver in 2014 that resulted in forty-seven
fatalities. “Texting and driving is against
the law in Tennessee,” said Tennessee
Department of Safety and Homeland
Security Commissioner Bill Gibbons. “We
are committed to enforcing this law to
the full extent. You might think you are
hiding your actions from us, but we are
continually coming up with innovative
ways to catch and deter this behavior. It
is unacceptable for a family in Tennessee
to experience the loss of a loved one
because someone made the choice to
read or respond to a text message while
driving.”
PIT from GT1
The data is used to determine how to
alleviate the effects of homelessness,
and can be used to bring funding and
resources into the county.
Goodman and Kitts both praised the
volunteer efforts that led to what has
been deemed the most successful count
ever. Twelve regional and community
groups participated this year. The results
revealed a larger number of homeless
and precariously housed individuals in
Grainger County, but the increase has
been attributed to a more thorough count
as a result of an increase in volunteers
taking place in the count.
In rural areas such as Grainger County,
homelessness does not always look like
it does in urban settings, and it is not
always as obvious.
A total of 76 people, in 33 families, were
counted as literally homeless this year,
compared to only 14 in last year’s count.
Sixty-four individuals, in 28 families,
were found to be precariously housed;
meaning that they are at imminent risk of
becoming homeless. They may be couch
hopping or living with family or friends,
and could, at any moment, be left without
a roof over their heads.
With the data in hand, the group agreed
to begin organizing a collaborative effort
among agencies, organizations, religious
groups and individuals across the county
to pool resources and investigate funding
options that may lend to cultivating a
solution to the homeless problem in the
county. The next meeting will be held
at noon, May 14, at the Grainger County
Soil Conservation Department Office in
Rutledge.

Grizzlies complete sweep
of Cumberland Gap

GT Correspondent
RUTLEDGE – After posting a 5-0
victory at Cumberland Gap, March
30, the Grainger High School Grizzly
baseball team returned home last
Tuesday to host the second game of the
season series against District 3-A foe
Cumberland Gap.
After a lead-off single by Trey
Cabbage, Corey Bates was hit by a pitch
and Hunter Sales singled to load the
bases. Mason Johnson delivered a tworun single to get the Grizzlies on the
board.
Zach Long’s sacrifice moved Sales to
third and Johnson to second. Tristan
Stalsworth’s single pushed across two
more runs for a 4-0 Grainger lead after
the first inning.
After the Panthers scored a run in
the top of the second, the Grizzlies
continued their hitting exhibition
as Cabbage and Bates both singled.
Johnson followed with a double to drive
across two runs before moving to third
on a wild pitch. He then scored on a
single by Stalsworth. That was followed
by a double from Tanner Mullins and a
single by Zach Sutton to plate the fifth
run of the inning and a 9-1 lead after two
innings of play.
The onslaught continued in the third
inning as a walk to Hunter Sykes was
followed by a home run from Cabbage.
For the second time in the game, Bates
was hit by a pitch. Sales followed with
a double to put runners at second and
third before Johnson slammed his
second double for two more RBIs which
pushed his total for the three innings to
six runs batted in. A sacrifice by Zach
Long and a double by Stalsworth pushed
the third inning total to seven and a 14-1
lead after three innings.
With the game safely in hand, Head
Coach Chad Tate emptied his bench
for the final two innings as Grainger
wrapped up a 14-3 run rule victory after
the top of the fifth inning.
Tristan Stalsworth, who pitched
the entire five inning game, allowed
four runs on six hits and struck out six
Panthers as the Grizzlies pushed their
district record to 4-1.
“It was a good district win,” said Tate
of the Grizzlies’ seventh win in a row.
“We’ve still got a lot to improve on.
We’ve got to get a lot more consistent in
our play.”

Pirates to victory over Cosby

WASHBURN – An outstanding effort
in the circle by Payton Simmons, plus
timely hitting and alert base running by
the Lady Pirates, propelled Washburn
High School to an impressive 10-3 victory
over their District 2A rivals Cosby.
In the game, played last Tuesday at
Washburn, the Lady Pirates opened the
bottom of the first inning with a walk to
Morgan Harville.
That was followed by a bunt single
to the pitcher by Haley Atkins. Both
runners then scored on a big double
by Haley Nicley who moved to third on
a throw to the plate by the Lady Eagle
center fielder. A single to center by
Makenzie Lay drove Nicley home and
Lay then scored on an error by the
shortstop to push the Washburn lead to
4-0 after the first inning.
After a scoreless top of the second,
the Lady Pirates put the two runners on
base on infield errors. That was followed
by consecutive walks to Atkins, Katlyn
Bunch and Nicley to push the Lady
Pirate’s lead to 6-0. A two-run single
by Simmons was followed by a single
by Sydnie Bailey that pushed across
another run for a 9-0 Lady Pirate lead.
After a scoreless third inning, the
Lady Eagles put a run on the board in
the top of the fourth inning. However,
the Lady Pirates responded with a run
in the bottom of the inning when Nicley
singled to shortstop. On the next play
Nicley tagged up and moved to second
on a pop-up to the pitcher when the
base wasn’t covered. Nicley then came
around to score on a single to shortstop
by Simmons to push the Washburn lead
to 10-1 after four innings.
Single runs in the top of the sixth and
seventh innings by the Lady Eagles cut
the Lady Pirates final margin of victory
to 10-3. Simmons’ performance became
even more incredible when the final
batter in the fourth inning blistered the
ball up the middle. The ball hit Simmons’
pitching hand and then bounded to the
first baseman for the put-out.
“Peyton battled,” said Lady Pirate
Coach Meka Wilhoit. “We’ve been
waiting for her to show maturity and
she did that today. She battled through
adversity and probably pitched the best
game of her career. We had overall effort
was great. We played together and I’m
very proud of the whole team.”
Grainger High School Lady Grizzlies record three wins
The
Grainger
High School Lady
Grizzly
softball
team
played
a
home and home
series with the
Lady Panthers of
Cumberland Gap,
last week. In the
first game, played
at
Cumberland
Gap, March 30,
Grainger’s Ashlyn
Hodge tripled to
open the game and
scored on a single by Mykala Fennell
who then scored on a double by Kenzie
Conn. A double by Logan Baker then
drove in a run for a 3-0 lead. Breanna
Williams opened the second inning with
a double followed by singles from Hodge
and Fennell.
After an error, a fielder’s choice by the
Lady Panthers, Grainger got a three-run
double as the score reached 8-0 in the
second inning. After the Lady Panthers
failed to score, the Lady Grizzlies added
three runs in the third on a single by
Williams, an error and singles from
Conn and Kelsey Jones to add three
additional runs. After a single by Logan
Baker, Williams delivered a single, her
third hit of the day, A double by Fennell
and a single by Kimberlyn Thomson
pushed across two additional runs for
a 13-0 win. Pitcher Kaylee Smith, who
allowed only two hits and struck out
seven, retired the last 11 batters in a
row to close out the game and post the
victory.
The following day, the Lady Grizzlies
hosted the Lady Panthers and the results
weren’t any different. Grainger put seven
runs on the board in the first inning and
then coasted to the 15-0 victory. The trio
of Ashlyn Hodge, Kimberlyn Thomson
and Samantha Spradling sparked the big
win with outstanding days at the plate.
Hodge went three for three, including a
double, scored three runs and had two
runs batted in. Thomson’s contribution
was two hits in two at-bats with two
runs scored and three runs batted
in. Spradling’s two hits in two at-bats
included a double and home run with
one run scored and three runs batted
in. In addition, Kaitlin Simon slammed a
three-run home run. Spradling pitched
four hitless innings and struck out two in
picking up the victory.
The third game in three nights for the
Lady Grizzlies turned into the third rout
in three days when the Lady Grizzlies
scored a mercy rule, 15-0 at Cosby, April
1. Rachel McCoy, three hits, four RBIs
and one run scored and Ashlyn Hodge,
two hits two runs scored and four RBI
ignited the Lady Grizzly victory which
also included two-hit performances by
Kaylee Smith and Keayrah Fifield. Smith,
who pitched the first two innings of the
contest allowed one hit and struckout
three, was followed in the circle by
Samantha Spradling who allowed two hits
and struck out two. Logan Baker, who
pitched the fifth inning, struck out one
and didn’t allow a hit.
Grainger Baseball
The Grainger Grizzly baseball team
continued its hitting rampage at Cosby,
April 1. Trey Cabbage opened the game
with a walk and moved to second on
a single by Corey Bates. Both runners
stole bases and both scored on a pair
of Eagle errors for a 2-0 lead after their
first at-bat. After holding Cosby scoreless
in the bottom of the inning, the Grizzlies
continued their torrent of runs in the
second inning. Singles by Tanner Mullins,
Ethan Bowles and a two-RBI single by
Nick Conley moved the lead to 4-0. Conley
then crossed the plate on a towering
home run by Cabbage. A single by Hunter
Sales and a walk to Mason Johnson
plus an Eagle error moved Sales around
to home plate for a 7-0 lead. After two
runs in the bottom of the second for the
Eagles, Grainger used singles by Tristan
Stalsworth Mullins, Bowles and Conley
and doubles by Cabbage and Zach Long
and a pair of errors to up their lead to 132. After three runs in the bottom of the
third inning for Cosby, the Grainger lead
was 13-5 and that score remained until
the top of the fifth. With the game in hand,
Coach Chad Tate substituted liberally
and the reserves came through. Johnson
stroked a double and stole third before
scoring on a sacrifice fly by Stalsworth.
Zach Sutton walked, Mullins was hit by
a pitch and Tanner Collins reached on
catcher’s interference. Mullins scored the
second run of the inning on a passed ball.
In the bottom of the inning, the Eagles
avoided the mercy rule by scoring a run
as the game went to the sixth inning with
Grainger holding a 15-6 lead. Avoiding the
mercy rule just increased the margin of
victory as four runs scored on a single by
Spencer Langston, a double by Johnson
a single to Long and walks to Stalsworth,
Zach Sutton, Nick Conley and Eric Wilder
pushed across four runs for a 19-6 lead.
A single run in the bottom of the inning
ended the game with a run rule, six inning
19-7 victory.
Washburn Baseball
In the second game of the Washburn
High School Pirates’ two game series with
District 2-A rival Northview Academy,
played March 31 in Kodak, the Pirates
scored a 12-9 win over the Cougars to
complete a sweep of the season series.
The Pirates opened a three-run lead at
the end of the first inning and pushed
that lead to 8-1 after the top of the third
inning. After Northview cut the lead to
8-6 after the fourth inning, the Pirates
responded with three runs in the top of
the fifth to stretch the lead to 11-6 and
then held on for a 12-9 win. The victory
improved their district record to 2-1.
Trevor Lay, with four hits in five at bats,
including a double, led Washburn at the
plate as he added two runs batted in and
a run scored.
Logan Capps, who caught the first
four innings and pitched the final three,
scored three runs and had two RBIs. In
addition, the Pirates got a double by
Kaleb Holt and singles from Johnathan
Graves and Cameron McGinnis who both
drove in three runs. Austin Atkins and
Scott Thompson also contributed singles
for the Pirates. Caleb Sammons, who
pitched the first four innings and struck
out five, picked up the victory with the
help of Logan Capps who pitched the
last three innings without giving up a hit
while striking out five batters.

TVA to demolish John Sevier Fossil Plant
BILL JONES
HT Correspondent
ROGERSVILLE – The Tennessee
Valley Authority announced Friday,
April 3, that it has decided to demolish
the retired John Sevier Fossil (coalfired) power plant and return the site to
“brownfield” conditions.
“The decision is the result of an
environmental assessment by TVA on
the future of the coal plant buildings
since TVA replaced the 1950s-era plant
in 2012 with a cleaner and more efficient
natural gas plant on the John Sevier
reservation,” TVA said in a news release.
“A finding of no significant impact
(FONSI) was issued on the decision
Friday, April 3.”
According to the news release TVA
considered four options:
• 1) assess, close, and secure the site;
• 2) conduct selective demolition;
• 3) demolish the site to grade level
(“brownfield”); or
• 4) take no action.
“TVA chose its preferred alternative
- removing the plant buildings - as
the most cost-beneficial for TVA and
ratepayers, considering safety, security,
liability and environmental risk at the
plant site,” the news release stated.
As a result, TVA will remove all
unneeded structures, roads and parking
lots associated with the retired coal
plant, including the powerhouse, coalhandling structures and surrounding
support buildings, according to the news
release. “The site will be turned into a
grassy field, suitable for commercial or
industrial purposes,” the news release
stated.
The demolition project is expected to
take up to 18 months. TVA will issue a
request for proposals for a demolition
contractor, according to the release.
“TVA
will
perform
separate
environmental evaluations for other
projects at the site, including the closure
of the fly ash stack, bottom ash pond

In the summer of 2014 the committee

Rogersville’s Post 21 hosts American
Legion 1st District convention
BILL JONES
HT Correspondent
ROGERSVILLE – American Legion
Hawkins County Post 21, of Rogersville,
hosted the American Legion Department
of Tennessee’s First District Convention,
Saturday evening, April 4.
Representatives of American Legion
posts from throughout the First District,
which encompasses territory from
Jefferson City to Mountain City, traveled
to Rogersville for the 5 p.m. meeting
along with Robert Hensley, the Legion’s
Department of Tennessee commander,
and several other state-level officers.
During the meeting, incumbent
First District Commander Ray Hice, of
Rogersville, announced that he was
not seeking re-election as First District
Commander.
When a call for nominations for
First District Commander for the fiscal
year that begins July 1 was issued, no
nominations were made from the floor.
Dean Tuttle, the American Legion
Department of Tennessee’s adjutant,
then announced that the next East
Tennessee Vice Commander will serve
as First District Commander as well until
a new First District Commander can be
appointed.
The American Legion was chartered
by Congress in 1919 as a patriotic,
mutual-help,
war-time
veterans
organization. A community-service
organization which now numbers
nearly three million members – men
and women – in nearly 15,000 American
Legion Posts worldwide. These Posts
are organized into 55 Departments, one
each for the 50 states, the District of
Columbia, Puerto Rico, France, Mexico,
and the Philippines.
The American Legion Department of
Tennessee has a Legion family of more
than 50,000, consisting of more than
33,000 Legionnaires and 17,000 Auxiliary
and Sons of The American Legion (SAL).
The Department is divided into
three Divisions, 10 Districts, and 189
individual American Legion Posts. Each
Division, District and Post has an elected
Commander. Post officers are elected
annually at the local Post and certified
to the Department Adjutant. District Commanders are both
nominated and elected annually at
their respective District Convention,
but cannot serve until installed at the
next Department Convention (June). Department Vice (Division) Commanders
are nominated and elected at their
respective caucus, which takes place
Sunday at the Department Convention.
The Department Commander is elected
annually and is nominated and elected
at the Department Convention.

Country legend John Conlee Pets rescued after week
to perform in Rogersville
without food, water
ROGERSVILLE – Country legend John
Conlee (Mr. Rose Colored Glasses), a
regular performer at the Grand Ole Opry
in Nashville, will be performing April 17
at Cherokee High School Little Theatre in
Rogersville.
During Conlee’s 35-year career in
country music,
he has brought to
audiences such classic songs as: “Rose
Colored Glasses” (his signature song),
“Friday Night Blues,” “Backside of 30,”
“Common Man,” “Miss Emily’s Picture,” “I
Don’t Remember Lovin’ You” and more.
Conlee’s fans are excited that he has
returned to radio with a new single
“Walkin’ Behind The Star”, released on
his own RCR (Rose Colored Records)
Label. This song was written by Nashville
recording veterans Ronny Scaife and Phil
Thomas and the lyrics were inspired by
Phil’s grandfather and great-grandfather
both of whom served in their local
sheriff’s department. The song had yet
to be cut until recent events made it
timely, the song
was pitched to the
Grand Ole Opry
star,
who
was
touched by the
song’s honesty.
“Recent deadly
attacks
against
the people who
keep us safe is
unprecedented
John Conlee
in America and
I wanted to sing
this song in honor of their sacrifice and
willingness to serve,” Conlee said.
The new CD will feature new material
along with many of Conlee’s latter
classics.
Conlee recently celebrated the 36th
anniversary of his breakthrough hit,
“Rose Colored Glasses,” and can be found
on tour throughout 2015 as well as on the
stage of the Grand Ole Opry, where he
has been a member since 1981.

ROGERSVILLE – A number of pets
owned by an elderly New Life Road
couple who were hospitalized after
being injured in an automobile accident
were without food and water for a week
before being rescued, April 1.
A report filed by Hawkins County
Sheriff’s Detective Marc Bass said
detectives who responded April 1 to a
report of animals being left unattended
observed “over 10 dogs and two birds
inside a New Life Road residence without
food or water.”
The owners of the mobile home,
according to Bass’ report, had been
injured in a traffic accident and had
spent the last week at Wellmont Holston
Valley Medical Center, in Kingsport.
“That animals had been in the
residence for a week without food or
water,” Bass wrote in his report. “The
mobile home was covered in animal
feces and urine. The Hawkins County
Humane Society was contacted and the
animals were rescued by them.”
Bass wrote in his report that 16 dogs
and two birds were rescued, but one dog
had died before authorities learned of
the situation.
Math and science
camp scheduled
MORRISTOWN – Walters State’s
summer math and science camp is
now taking applications. The camp is
designed for current seventh and eighth
graders. The camp is free, but a limited
number of spaces are available.
“This camp introduces students who
have potential in math and science to
the college atmosphere,” explained
Dr. Julianna Gregory, coordinator of
mathematics at the Sevier County
Campus and professor of mathematics at
Walters State.
“After attending this camp, we hope
students will want to take more math and
science classes in high schools and be
better prepared for those courses. During
the camp, students will learn about the
many interesting career fields needing
math and science skills,” Gregory said.
The math and science camp will be
held on each of the college’s campus
locations:
• Claiborne County – Monday, July 20
– Friday, July 24
• Greeneville/Greene County –
Monday, July 13 – Friday, July 17
• Morristown – Monday, July 13 –
Friday, July 17
• Sevier County – Monday, July 20 –
Friday, July 24
Activities are designed to encourage
students to consider careers related to
math and science. Students will learn the
role math and science play in fields like
crime scene investigation. Students also
learn how to work with numerical data to
predict outcomes and enjoy a scavenger
hunt.
One of the camp’s ultimate goals is
to attract students from groups that
are under-represented in math and
science fields. These include students
whose parents did not complete college;
minorities; low-income students; and
females. The camp is funded by a state
grant and is part of the college’s diversity
and access initiatives.
Students who do not belong to one of
the underrepresented groups are still
encouraged to apply.
“We consider many factors when
choosing students,” Gregory said.
The camp is open to students in
the college’s 10-county service area:
Hawkins, Grainger, Claiborne, Cocke,
Greene, Hancock, Hamblen, Jefferson,
Sevier and Union Counties. Students
attending the camp will receive a T-shirt
along with lunch and snacks. Students
will also visit the ETSU and General Shale
Natural History Museum and Gray Fossil
Site.
In addition to Gregory, camp leaders
are Elena Owen, assistant professor of
math and physics; Dr. Kay Moneyhun,
coordinator of mathematics at the
Greeneville/Greene County Campus and
professor of mathematics; Dr. Crystal
Rice, associate professor of mathematics;m
Dr. Matthew Smith, assistant professor
of chemistry; and Dr. William Sproat,E

Church Hill EMS, Hawkins County

all submitted applications hoping to
tbe approved and designated primary

quickly led to social media accusations
that committee chairman Bob Palmer
areferred to as “slander, rumors and
near threats.” But when all was said and
done, the motion which passed out of
committee for recommendation to the
full commission was to leave all three
services in place for a year of observation.
The commission will take a vote April 27.
Palmer said, “I left the decision to the
committee to do what they felt was best
for the people. They felt the best thing to
do was let all three operate for a year and
evaluate it at the end.”
Gay Murrell, 911 Director, said when
ambulances are dispatched, it is the
general rule to send the service which
has an ambulance closest to the patient.

Arsonist sets campers,
cabin on fire
BILL JONES
HT Correspondent
CHURCH HILL – Hawkins County
sheriff’s deputies are investigating an
arson incident that took place early
April 1, when three campers and a cabin
were allegedly set on fire at a small
campground along the Holston River
near Laurel Run Park.
A report filed by Deputy Bobby
Moffitt said he and volunteer firefighters
were dispatched to 234 Kinchole Road in
reference to some campers being on fire.
“Upon my arrival, I noticed three
campers were completely engulfed in
flames and a cabin was just starting to
burn,” Moffitt wrote in his report. “The
(Goshen Valley and Carters Valley) fire
departments (were) on the scene and
put out (the fire in) the cabin.”
The deputy also noted in his report
that he also noticed that the cover over
one of the burning campers had been
ripped and that its door appeared to
have been forced open. “The smell of
gas(oline) was in and on it (the camper),”
Moffitt wrote in his report. “I also noticed
a strong odor of gas(oline) coming from
another camper.”
The deputy also noted in his report
that a flashlight was seen “shining from
the river.” The flashlight, according to
Moffitt’s report, was retrieved from the
river by volunteer firefighters.
In addition, the incident report noted,
some printer paper that had an odor
of gasoline coming from it was found
near one of the campers, according to
Moffitt’s report. He also wrote in his
report that he noticed that the gas cap
was missing from a dump truck that was
parked near the campers.
Moffitt reportedly spoke with a
witness who had been awakened by
barking dogs and had gone to investigate.
When the witness went outside, the
report stated, he noticed that the sky
in the direction of the river was red.
“(The witness) stated that he went to the
back of his residence and noticed two
campers burning on the left side (of the
campground) and one (camper burning)
near the middle (of the campground),”
Deputy Moffitt wrote. “(He) stated he did
not hear of see any vehicles in the area.”
The report listed five campers and
a cabin as damaged but did not list a
damage estimate or the brands and
models of the campers.
Volunteer firefighters said the suspect
who set the fires may have fled on the
Holston River in a kayak that was stolen
from the campground.
