  • Randolph steers toward...

    Summer is a time for many different things for people but three of the most common are: spending time with family, going to the beach, or playing baseball.

  • Good showing for Roane teams in...

    The Harriman AAA All Stars took on the Madisonville AAA All Stars on Saturday morning in an elimination game in the Dixie Youth District 8 tournament.

    Harriman started off the tournament by taking a loss against Sweetwater which matched them up with Madisonville who dropped their first round contest as well.

    Harriman had a hard fought game but the youngsters couldn’t pick up the win. “I’m really proud of how hard we played,” said Harriman head coach Daniel Brackett.

    Going into Thursday’s game, Tellico had a perfect 3-0 record, outscoring opponents 32-0. So it was a tall order for Rockwood.

    “A lot of the kids on the this team faced Tellico last year,” Rockwood Coach Matt Goddard said, “so they know that Tellico is the big dog in this district.

    TWRA boating officers Dustin Buttram and Barry Baird have seen an increase in paddle sports on the Tennessee waterways they patrol.

    Paddle crafts are for rent at many reservoirs and public areas and it’s a fun way to enjoy the outdoors. However many paddling for the first time go out unprepared. With four paddle craft fatalities in 2016, officers hope to reduce this in 2017.

    Infrequent or new paddle craft users typically do not see themselves as a vessel that needs an understanding of boating safety and state laws.
