During routine patrol, a deputy with the Hamilton County Sheriff’s Office was making a traffic stop involving a Chevrolet S10 Truck. When the driver stopped the vehicle, he immediately jumped and ran into a wooded area off Highway 27 in Sale Creek.  

Deputies initiated a search and cordoned off a large area between Patterson Road and Highway 27 and called for a search dog. The vehicle was determined to be stolen from an address just a few blocks from the area where the suspect was first observed by deputies.

Sale Creek Middle and High Schools were notified and locked all doors so that no one could enter the school for the safety of students and staff.  

Deputies searched the area and had one sighting of the suspect, but information became available fairly early to identify him along with a possible address.

The suspect was identified as Josh Sharber, 24, who is described as having blue eyes, brown hair and wearing khaki shorts with a gray sweatshirt. 

Warrants were obtained for theft of an auto and evading arrest involving this incident and it was determined he already had outstanding warrants involving narcotics.

Anyone with information or knowledge on the whereabouts of Josh Sharber is asked to call the Sheriff’s dispatcher at 423 622-0022.

Signal Mountain Couldn't Manage Public Education

I have been reading the buzz about Signal Mountain and other small municipalities considering a move to form their own school district within their municipal boundaries.  It is quite the comedy hour considering the notion that small cities that for decades could not even manage small sewer systems or 911 districts, are somehow going to do a better job with public education ...

Roy Exum: School Board Can’t Wait

It took the Hamilton County School board nine months before the group hired a search firm to find a new superintendent. But you mark my words – the Department of Education will undoubtedly implode if our leaders wait another nine months simply hoping for some type of mystical salvation. In the last week Signal Mountain leaders have all but given notice they will form their own district ... (click for more)
