    By Flo Charles

    First, I meant to compliment Mr. Largen for his excellent, detailed and conscientious article concerning our schools in Roane County.

    My husband, a former classmate and friend of yours, Mr. Largen, would have applauded you and agree with Ron Woody, our County Executive, who said, “You can have all the votes you want. If you don’t have the money that’s going to support it, it doesn’t make any difference.” (The $68 million request)

    Tears were shed Monday evening in Rockwood. The Tigers of Rockwood High School ended their season in the oppressive heat and humidity with a loss to the Patriots of Chattanooga High School of Arts and Sciences, 13-12.

  • One is all that was needed

    One plus one equals three.

    All it took was one spectacular defensive play and one inning of offense for the Kingston Lady Jackets to beat Union County, 3-1, Monday night in the first round of the Region 2 softball playoffs.

    “These girls are determined and they are focused,” Kingston Coach Wendy Johnson said. “I’ve said it all year that I will ride their coat tails as far as they’ll take me.”

    The game had been a pitcher’s duel between Kingston’s Emily Workman and the Lady Patriots’ Makayla Lever.
