Knowles, Hullander, Behler Face No Opposition; Harvey Faces Hammond; Coppinger, Hurst, Tidwell Have 2 Opponents; 3 Vie For Circuit Court Clerk

Thursday, February 20, 2014

County Clerk Bill Knowles, Trustee Bill Hullander and Juvenile Court Clerk Gary Behler will sail into the upcoming election with no opposition.

County Mayor Jim Coppinger is faced with fellow Republican Basil Marceaux Sr. and Independent Richard Ford.

Pam Hurst is seeking a new term as register of deeds, but will have to get by fellow Republicans Ryan Epperson and Paul Parker.

Criminal Court Clerk Gwen Tidwell is opposed by Brian White in the Democratic primary. If she wins there, the next hurdle will be against state Rep. Vince Dean.

With Paula Thompson retiring as Circuit Court clerk, three Republicans are running. They are County Commissioner Larry Henry, Ron Parson of the sheriff's office, and attorney Lisa Bowman.

Chris Harvey of the sheriff's office is running against Sheriff Jim Hammond in the Republican primary.

Eric Lewis had picked up to run against Mr. Knowles, but he said on his Facebook page he decided not to run due to family issues. He said he plans to run in 2018 and "it is without a doubt I would have been able to successfully take the seat of clerk."

He said he wanted to say "job well done" to Mr. Knowles, while calling him a "trailblazer" and a very moral person.

The qualifying deadline was at noon on Thursday.

Congress Needs To Get Down To Business And The News Media Report Facts

Roy Exum: UT A 34-Point ‘Dog

I can’t remember a time in my life when a University of Tennessee football team has been a five touchdown underdog and this comes at a time when my primary-care physician tells me, “Let’s face it … you are old.” That said, even when I look at myself naked in the bathroom mirror I ain’t as ugly as what I fear will happen in Tuscaloosa this coming Saturday. I can remember the Tide ... (click for more)
