Soddy Daisy Honors Kelsey Nunley; Accepts Painting Of Historic Poe's Tavern

Friday, June 20, 2014 - by Gail Perry

Soddy Daisy Mayor Janice  Cagle on Thursday night presented a proclamation to Kelsey Nunley for outstanding achievements in softball. “This is a young lady we are all real proud of,” she said. Ms. Nunley’s career began in high school and has extended through her sophomore season at the University of Kentucky.

A gift was made to the city by Marcella Shipley, of an original painting of Poe’s Tavern that she created. Plans are to display it at city hall.

Commissioners also gave approval to purchase asphalt from two companies for road repairs. The lowest bidder is preferred, but does not always have the materials available. The city has designated $500,000 for paving that will begin after July 1.

Mayor Cagle announced that an open air farmers market will take place on Saturdays in front of Poe’s Tavern. Locally grown produce or locally made products will be sold. The first market will be Saturday from 8 a.m. until around 1 p.m. Anyone is welcome as vendors at the market, provided the items for sale are local.

The mayor also said that a decision has been made that will allow camping around the lake during the 4th of July holiday, beginning at 5 p.m. July 3 until 5 p.m. on July 5.

She also informed those present that there will be no commission meeting on July 3.  The next meeting is scheduled for July 17.
