  • Redmon shares memories of late teacher

    Dear Editor,

        I just have to write about a gracious lady, who I had as a teacher back in the 1950s. Her name is Marjorie Waddell, affectionately known as Miss Marjorie by her many students. She passed away at Brookdale Senior Living in Kingston on June 8, 2018, at the age of 102.

  • Foltz questions county executive

    Dear Editor,
        
        Don Edwards, at a recent public forum, declared he had never lived in Loudon County nor had an affair on his wife. While I sure wouldn’t take it to the bank (since he has been less than honest on other things) it is not his private life that is a concern to the voters.

    Keck thankful for TMLF success

    Jones praises Keck for being festival committed

    Dear Editor,

        The 4th Annual Tennessee Mountain Laurel Festival on May 19 was another great event for Morgan County. The Morgan County Tourism Alliance (MCTA) works hard to make this event bigger and better each year and we think this year was the best yet.
    A quick summary:

    Dear Editor,

        I have noticed that someone has a problem with how our money has been spent.
        It might pay to check with Gary Howard (Morgan County Director of Finance), he could help you.
        Our county has spent around $80,000 on the Sheriff’s lawsuit, and $70,000 on medical and dental bills for inmates, and $22,500 on other lawsuits. We have to pay his lawyer bill as well as paying the county attorney also.

    Editor,

        This is a questionnaire for each and all running for County Executive. I ask that each of you reply.
        Will you get new jobs into the county?
        Will you take jobs away from our citizens? Especially when they ask for your help or when something had supposedly happened and not take time to find out what really did happen?
        Will you help people who can’t read get jobs?
        Will you help senior citizens get jobs?

    Dear Editor,

        Theme for 2018 Deer Lodge Fourth of July Parade is: Celebrating our Freedom with 50 years of Deer Lodge Fourth of July Parades.

        The time is here, so please help us make the parade the very best ever. We are hoping that every church, business, horse rider, motorcyclist, 4 wheeler, old car owner, politician and anyone else that would like to be in the parade will enter. We are also hoping for a big crowd of spectators.

    Dear Editor,

        I have tried to keep my mouth shut about our county executive Don Edwards, but I can’t let the stuff slide after finding out he is running yet again for a third time.
        I believe in the Bible and I believe there are a lot of good people in this county.

    Dear Editor,

        My friends, neighbors and fellow Morgan County citizens, I am so blessed by God to be your County Executive. You have entrusted this office to me for two terms and I am so thankful for your confidence in me. I have not and I will not let you down. However, I must address some silly rumors, some crazy accusations, and some downright wicked lies that are being perpetrated by those who oppose me as your County Executive.
