  • Roane State’s Classroom under the Sea looks at invasive species in sea

    The lionfish invasion and sharks will be topics for the Oct. 23 episode of Classroom Under the Sea.

    One of the most destructive forces in the ocean today is a fish. One of the most misunderstood fish in the ocean is known for its destructive force.

  • Courts likely to hear same-sex couple’s appeal

    As long as everything is in order procedurally, Tennessee Appellate Court Chief Deputy Clerk Joanne Newsome said she expects the Court of Appeals to hear the Roane County same-sex divorce case.

    Frederick Michael Borman filed for divorce from Larry Kevin Pyles-Borman in Roane County Circuit Court in March. The Roane County men were married in Iowa in 2010.

    Tennessee doesn’t recognize same sex marriage, and former circuit court judge Russell E. Simmons Jr. denied Borman’s request for a divorce.

  • Alexander calls for restrictions on travel because of Ebola outbreak

    While not calling for an all out ban, U.S. Sen. Lamar Alexander, R-Tenn., said travel should at least be restricted from the Ebola infected countries in Africa.

    “Given the spread of Ebola in Dallas, the most sensible way to prevent the spread of Ebola in the United States is to restrict travel to the U.S. from Liberia, Guinea and Sierra Leone in West Africa to essential personnel,” Alexander said in a statement last week.

    Some have called for the all out ban to the African countries, but President Barack Obama seemed reluctant to do that last week.

  • Jackets pick up second win, 17-14

    It wasn't pretty at times, but the Kingston Yellow Jackets picked up their second win of the season Friday night with a hard fought 17-14 victory over Sequoyah at Dr. Nat Sugarman Memorial Field.
    Muddy field conditions made it hard for either team to move freely, but Sequoyah's Power-I offense seemed more suited for a sloppy field. Kingston's defense, however, held the Chiefs to 154 yards rushing on 36 carries. Sequoyah added 60 yards passing to end the evening with 214 total yards.

  • Sunbright knocks off Oliver Springs, 39-7

     

    The fur was most definitely flying in the "cat-fight"between Oliver Springs and Sunbright Friday night, but it was the Bobcats taking a tough 39-7 loss at home.

    After the Bobcats' first drive stalled out at the Tiger 24-yard line, Sunbright would march 76 yards in nine plays, scoring on a Luke Daniel to Braxton Swint 22-yard strike.

  • Greene, Devils soar past Bears, 41-14

     

    Coming off a heartbreaking loss against loss against Greenback, and being off from school for a week with fall break, it would have been understandable if the Harriman Blue Devils weren’t clicking on all cylinders Friday night in their District 3-A clash at Tellico Plains.
