Jeff Dodson, Chairman of the Cumberland County Soil Conservation District (SCD), has announced that the annual Holder-Bush Memorial Scholarship in the amount of $300 will be awarded this spring to a deserving Cumberland County student majoring in some field of agriculture at Tennessee Technology University in Cookeville. The scholarship was started as a memorial to Mr. Elmer Holder who served Cumberland County as the District Conservationist with the USDA Soil Conservation Service (now known as the Natural Resources Conservation Service) from 1958 until his untimely death in 1980. Mr. Holder was a true conservationist and made a tremendous impact in agriculture and soil conservation in Cumberland County during his 22 years of service. Chester Bush replaced Mr. Holder as the District Conservationist for Cumberland County and served in that capacity for 29 years. The SCD Board decided to change the name of this scholarship to the Holder-Bush Scholarship to honor both former District Conservationists for their hard work and dedication to the conservation of our natural resources and to the people of Cumberland County. Applications may be obtained at the guidance counselors’ or vocational agriculture teachers’ offices at Cumberland County High School and Stone Memorial High School. They are also available at the Christian Academy of the Cumberlands, as well as the District Office located in the U.S. Department of Agriculture (USDA) Service Center at 314 Old Jamestown Highway beside the U.S. Post Office, or by calling the District office at 484-5442, ext. 3. The Cumberland County SCD Board of Supervisors must receive applications and completed resumes no later than March 24, 2015. Anyone planning to attend or currently attending Tennessee Tech with a major in agriculture is encouraged to apply.
The Crossville City Council is looking at ways to either get out of county codes inspections or add funding for additional officials to take care of enforcement within the City. The City agreed in 2010 to conduct state mandated building inspections for the county, which has generated additional revenue for the City. Due to the additional workload, council members feel that many issues in the City have been neglected. Councilman Danny Wyatt proposed a study to see how much it would cost to add a codes enforcement person to handle city issues, while maintaining the revenue stream from county inspections. Fiscal year to date revenue for the Codes Department is $167,000.
