Commissioner Fields Considered A Leading Candidate For Clerk And Master

Friday, May 23, 2014

Sources said County Commissioner Jim Fields, who is an attorney, is considered a leading candidate to be named clerk and master in the place of retiring Lee Akers.

If he is named to the post, Commissioner Fields would like to stay on the County Commission while only drawing the clerk and master pay and benefits, sources said. He represents District 2.  

Current Chancellors Frank Brown and Jeff Atherton have declined to give the names of the 14 local attorneys who have applied for the post. They have been placed under seal.

Pam Fleenor, who will be the new chancellor in place of the retiring Brown, is also involved in choosing the new clerk and master.

Mr. Akers said another meeting is set next Tuesday on the selection process.

Mr. Akers earlier said he would be involved in choosing his successor. He said his five deputy chiefs would also have input.

Mr. Akers' retirement date is Sept. 8.

He is paid $106,016.

Signal Mountain Should Be Problem Solvers Around The City

Re: Roy Exum’s “Stay, Signal Mountain, Stay”  Well this article is something to think about. I think the split could go either way, and Signal Mountain schools would still flourish, as they have done for the past several years. What I'm worried about is why Signal Mountain has not yet had the guts to go be problem solvers at Howard, or Tyner, or Central. Why do ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

As we welcome another Saturday of the funnies, our attention is drawn to two little boys, ages 5 and 7, who are excessively mischievous. They are always getting into trouble and their parents know if any mischief occurs in their town, the two boys are probably involved.    Understand, we have no idea who these boys are, or where any of the Saturday Funnies originate. ...
