  • Making learning special

    A few lucky sixth grade Cherokee Middle School students were the recipients of student dictionaries from the East Roane County Ruritan Club.

    "It is part of our charter to do community service," Clint Miller, foundation promotion chair, said. "We like to help people when we can."

    They donated 25 in their first time taking part in the dictionary project.

  • GUILTY

    A person doesn’t need to have a gun in hand to be in possession.

    Rocky Houston found that out this week when a federal jury found him guilty of a federal weapons charge.

    “The law recognizes two kinds of possession: actual possession and constructive possession,” U.S. District Judge Danny Reeves instructed jurors on Wednesday. “Either one of these, if proved by the government, is enough to convict.”

    That’s exactly what the jury did — finding Houston guilty of being a convicted felon in possession of firearms.
