    The Kingston Lady Jackets had hoped to end Christian Academy of Knoxville's (CAK) streak of winning the District 4 A/AA Championship at five straight years, but the Lady Warriors had a different idea as CAK rolled to a 7-4 victory in West Knoxville for their sixth title since 2006.

    The Harriman Blue Devils were no match for the Grace Christian Academy Rams Friday night, falling by a score of 49-0. 

  • Bobcats blank Bulldogs, 35-0

    One week after getting embarrassed at home against Sunbright, the Oliver Springs Bobcats put together a dominant performance in knocking off Wartburg, 35-0, in a District 4-A battle at Wartburg's John R. Dillon Field.

    After last week's loss against Sunbright, the Bobcats were a team that appeared to be on the verge of a meltdown, but Oliver Springs head coach Wiley Bracckett rallied the troops this week, and he also vowed that his team would not have another performance like the one against Sunbright the rest of the season.

  • Second ash-spill trial called off

    An agreement between plaintiffs attorneys and TVA nullifies the need for a second ash spill trial in November.
    The parties agreed to adopt the record produced at the trial that concluded on Oct. 12.
    “It is the parties’ intent in entering into this stipulation to promote judicial economy, to avoid the expense of a lengthy trial on issues litigated in related proceedings, and to avoid the potential of inconsistent rulings,” a court filing on the agreement said.

  • Rockwood recall petitions issued

    Rockwood residents who want to see Mayor James Watts and Councilwoman Jane Long ousted can now put their names on recall petitions for the two.
    The Roane County Election Commission approved the final wording of the petition at a special-called meeting on Monday, Oct. 17.
    Election administrator Charles Holiway made only one change to the petition other than what was recommended by the full commission — that was to add the Tennessee Code Annotated Section 2-5-151, which supersedes the city’s charter.

  • Burned-out house sparks action

    Carter Street residents troubled by the charred remains of a neighboring home will soon have their hopes answered.
    The Harriman City Council voted to demolish what is left of the structure at 316 Carter St., where fire more than a year ago heavily damaged the home.
    The building may be gone as soon as the end of the year, thanks to the vote last week.
    “It will make that neighborhood pretty happy down there,” said Councilman Ken Mynatt.
    Neighbors had complained to council members about the home owned by Carolyn Daniels.
