    “Most of your business is small business,” Woody said.

  • Burglars targeting OS area

    Roane County Sheriff Jack Stockton said the Oliver Springs area has been a hot spot for burglaries this summer.  

    “They’ve been targeting that area because it’s so easy to get back into Anderson County and out of our jurisdiction,” the sheriff said. “That area is very rural, and there’s so many routes in and out.”

    Stockton said the sheriff’s office has taken steps to try to stop the rash of break-ins by increasing patrols in the area.
