Pickett CCC Memorial State Park wins Tennessee State Park award


Pickett CCC Memorial State Park wins Tennessee State Park award
Submitted: TN Dept. of Environment and Conservation Tuesday February 2, 2016

Pickett CCC Memorial State Park and Pogue Creek Canyon State Natural Area won the award for Excellence in Innovation. The park was one of two of the 56 Tennessee State Parks to receive this award.

Pickett CCC Memorial State Park and Pogue Creek Canyon State Natural Area were designated as an International Dark Sky Park on May 12, 2015 by the International Dark-Sky Association. There are currently only 30 Dark Sky Parks in the entire world, which makes dark sky viewing at Pickett very special. Visitors can view the Milky Way in the summer and winter. This is something very special because there are only a few places left in Tennessee with the same exemplary night view.

Juveniles Suspected in Vandalism and Burglary of Masonic Lodge
Peg Broadcasting News/CPD Monday February 1, 2016

At least two juveniles are being investigated in the vandalism and burglary of the Masonic Lodge on South Main Street. Crossville Police were called Sunday to the Lodge after a door was discovered forced open. Police say the word KILLUMINITA was engraved on another door. The word seems to be a variation of killuminati, a term coined by Tupac Shakur that means kill the Illuminati. Police say the Masonic Lodge had been thoroughly ransacked, with windows broken and numerous items destroyed and stolen. During their investigation, police learned that a juvenile had been talking at school about Killuminita, the Illuminati, and the Masonic Organization. Police made contact with the juvenile, who upon questioning, allegedly told police where several stolen items could be located. The suspect also reportedly named another juvenile suspect. Authorities say shoe prints left at the scene match both suspects. Authorities have returned some stolen items to Lodge personnel. Charges are pending against the juveniles and the investigation is ongoing. Because of their ages, their names have not been released.
