Deputy Beaten After Vehicle Crashes In His Yard Sues Officers

A man who was mistakenly beaten by officers who had been pursuing a pickup truck that crashed into his home has Hamilton County and the officers for $700,000.

It names Curtis Brian Killingsworth and unknown officers who allegedly took part in ... (click for more)

Meigs County Judge To Hear Attorney Spanking Case

A Meigs County judge has been assigned to hear a case in which a Lookout Mountain attorney is charged with spanking his 11-year-old son 100 hits. Judges in Hamilton County General Sessions Court recused themselves after Morgan Adams was charged with aggravated child abuse last Friday. He is due in court on April 24.

From Blue Rhinos to providing telecommunications services, our government knows no bounds. We’ve gone from a free enterprise system to a public enterprise system.  I'm not an artist.

(Story will be updated momentarily) Central coach Rick Rogers said that all he wanted to do was win and advance. His District 6-AA champion Purple Pounders played host to District 5-AA fourth-place finisher Loudon on Saturday evening and it probably shouldn't have been close. But someone forgot to tell the visiting Redskins. Central had a 13-point lead at halftime and ... (click for more)

Brainerd Boys Too Much For Sequoyah As Panthers Roll, 83-63

It was a mismatch from the opening whistle. Sequoyah coach Daniel Curtis knew it before his Chiefs entered Brainerd's High-Jackson Gymnasium Saturday afternoon, but he wasn't about to tell his players. His worst scenario came to pass a little while later as Brainerd advanced with the 83-63 victory and improved to 21-6 overall while Sequoyah's season ends at 14-14. "That ... (click for more)
