  • Teen Board presentees

    Eight young women from Roane County were presented by the Teen Board of Knoxville during the 51st annual Teen Board Presentation Dance last weekend.

    They were among the rising high school seniors from East Tennessee presented during the black-tie event for
    completing hours of service to civic and welfare projects for charitable organizations in their community.

    Teen Board members gave more than 12,000 hours to area charities last year.

    Scattered showers did little to relieve drought conditions or help crops. A 30-inch deficit in rainfall totals across the state severely damaged crops. Area agriculture officials estimated 100 percent of the
    area’s soybean crop had been lost; the corn crop was projected to suffer a 70 percent loss; and tobacco would only be at 30-40 percent of normal crop levels. Lack of hay and pasture caused beef cattlemen to send record numbers of cattle early to auction.
