A new campaign to educate voters about the judicial system, the importance of fair and impartial judicial elections and how to evaluate judicial candidates launches this week in Tennessee, one of eight states to participate in the “Informed Voters — Fair Judges” project sponsored by the National Association of Women Judges and the League of Women Voters.
The project launches at noon today, Jan. 15, with a live webcast and videotaped presentation by former U.S. Supreme Court Justice Sandra Day OConnor.
At 31, Jack Harvey’s body has taken more beatings than some people experience in a lifetime.
With a boxer fracture to his hand, broken arm, broken leg, broken ribs, broken anchors in his spinal cord and several broken fingers all in his past, the Kingston man is used to dealing with pain.
But nothing compared to the pain and the difficult recovery that came from the injuries he received when he took a fall at Windrock Park in 2011. He broke his left leg and ankle so severely that his foot was turned in the wrong direction.
Looks as if the new Orion Spacecraft vehicle, moving last month from NASA’s Langley Research Center in Hampton, Va., to the U.S. Naval Base in San Diego, was too wide for the Interstate 40 construction area at Exit 347 in Harriman.
Kingston’s Bill Wright spotted the spacecraft as it traveled through Roane County, and we appreciate him allowing us to share his photograph with our readers.
