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.

New Cleveland High Gym Completion Pushed Back 6 Days Due To Rainy Weather

Earlier rainy weather has pushed back the promised completion date for the new Cleveland High School gymnasium by six days. The new date is March 2.

Sheriff Hammond Is Right On The Muslim Threat - And Response (2)

Sheriff Hammond is exactly correct on the Muslims in Tennessee.  He sees with clear eyes the problem with the Muslims in our state and country.  They do want to take over Tennessee.  Our politicians are selling us down the river and allowing the trouble makers to dig in like tics and suck out the life's blood of our Constitution and take us over.  They ...

Roy Exum: The Barners Trounce Who?

There is a website known as Grammarly that just completed a profound study. An automated proof-reading company (who I hope never finds out about me) collected 100 comments that each included over 50 words from the comment blogs of the nation’s preseason Top 25 college football teams. Then they fed them into the company’s huge algorithm computer and checked each fan base for punctuation, ... (click for more)

Pugh, Smith Lead Sale Creek Past East Ridge, 3-0

If Sale Creek’s Bailey Pugh and Ariana Smith were a comedy act, Pugh would be Ed McMahan and Smith would play Johnny Carson. On the court, Pugh sets up Smith, who finishes things with killer punch lines. That was certainly the case Tuesday at East Ridge High School where the visiting Lady Panthers rolled over the Lady Pioneers, 3-0, with game scores of 25-16, 25-8 and ... (click for more)
