    Readers of my previous “Out to Lunch” articles may remember that I like to explore unique and out-of-the-way places to eat.

    Our most recent adventure at Long Hollow Grill at the Spring City Resort & Marina is one of those out-of-the-way places. You’ll be pleased with the tasty food.

    The atmosphere of the Grille is a mix of a small hometown café, a bar with good pub food; and an inviting open deck overlooking the lake and marina. The variety of food choices will impress you.

  • What’s the SCORE? by Dana Peterka: Cast an eye toward the future

    Currently, there is much discussion about preparing our students for their future, not our past.

    As Tennessee moves to a K-14 education system, there is debate about what skills a worker will need in the future.

    By one popular estimate, 65 percent of children entering primary school today will ultimately end up working in completely new job types that don’t yet exist!

    One expert predicts that 70-80 percent of today’s job types will disappear in the next 20 years.

  • Covenant demonstrates WeCare to Long family

    Roane Medical Center has been a part of Vicky Long’s family as far back as she can remember.

    “I am biased since I’m a long-time employee and my mother was a 30-year employee of Roane Medical Center and retired from there,” she said.

    “I grew up with Roane Medical Center; my kids used to go trick-o-treating there.”

  • Roane Medical provides expertise and caring support for employee’s family

    Vicky Long had just gone to bed last Oct. 1 when her cell phone rang.

    “I looked over and saw it was my son – I always answer for my kids no matter when it is,” she said.

    Long heard a tone that “a Mom knows is not a good thing” in her son’s voice.

    Her instincts were correct.

    The next words she heard from her 22-year-old son, Ryan, gripped her with fear:

    “Mom, I’m hurt,” he said. “I need you to come and take me to the hospital.”
