Appreciation From Sabrena Turner Of District 7

Friday, May 9, 2014

I would like to express my heartfelt appreciation and gratitude to the residents of District 7 for showing their overwhelming support of me in the Republican primary to be the next County Commissioner.  I am humbled by your support and confidence in my ability to lead our district forward, and I promise to remain focused on what matters most – the people of District 7. 

For those who supported one of my opponents during the Republican Primary Election, I hope you will take time to learn more about my vision for our district and support my efforts to continue the conservative principles and values that Commissioner Henry has brought to the County Commission during the past 12 years.

As I move forward with my General Election campaign, I will continue to visit with residents throughout our district, listen to their concerns and share my vision for addressing the growing needs in our public schools, tackling the economic growth and development issues facing our community, and advocating for public safety concerns in our district.  This is my commitment to you as I work to earn your support and vote again on Thursday, August 7.

Howard Scores Career-High 41 In All-America Type Effort As Bradley Beats McMinn, 69-43

ATHENS, Tenn. – Bradley Central’s Rhyne Howard made no bones about it. She was extremely disappointed not making the McDonald’s All-America team announced earlier this week. And McMinn County’s Lady Cherokees paid a heavy price for Howard’s frustration. With the second-ranked Bearettes coming out of halftime with a shaky 30-24 lead and not playing their best basketball, ... (click for more)

East Hamilton Makes 'Short' Work Of Tyner

To say the East Hamilton basketball squad made short work of visiting Tyner Academy Friday night would be a bit of an understatement.   The Hurricanes made 24 shots in the 62-49 non-region battle victory in a game matching two of the area’s better squads and all but three of those makes came within a foot or so of the basket.  You heard that right: ...
