  • Jackets, Devils look to build...

    Weather delays and fantastic finishes were the highlights of last week's opening to the 2011 football season.

    Midway, Rockwood and Oliver Springs will also be in action this week and all three will be searching for their first win.

  • Dykes, Mason on the run after...

    In his five years as Harriman’s mayor, Chris Mason has done a lot of good for the residents of the city.

    However, all of Mason’s hard work might have gone up in smoke with one word that appeared in the Wednesday’s edition of the Roane County News. That word was KINGSTON as Mason picked the Yellow Jackets in Goose’s Gurus to defeat the Blue Devils in Friday’s match-up between the two bitter county rivals.
