Cumberland County is one of 13 communities hoping to be designated as sustainable communities by the Tennessee Valley Authority. TVA designated 13 locations as Valley Sustainable Communities last year and says 13 more are about to begin the review process. TVA executive John Bradley says the idea is to help communities be prepared when companies look for a site for their business. Crossville City Mayor JH Graham III says “This new program provides us with the opportunity to document, further develop and be recognized for our sustainable initiatives, which will help differentiate our community in the tough competition for new corporate investment and job creation.”
Donnie Tyndall will be named Tennessee's next men's basketball coach, sources close to the situation have told WVLT. Tyndall spent the last two years at Southern Miss. The Golden Eagles were 29-7 this year and 27-10 the year before. Prior to his stint in Hattiesburg, Tyndall was the head coach at Morehead State for six years. His overall record at Morehead was 114-84, coaching the Eagles to two NCAA tournament births. Tennessee has been without a head coach since last Tuesday, when Cuonzo Martin unexpectedly accepted the head job at Cal. Multiple outlets reported that the Vols first targeted Louisiana Tech's Michael White. It's believed that contract issues kept White from accepting the position and that's when UT's search turned toward Tyndal.
The trial date for two former Upper Cumberland Development District officials has been delayed for a second time in U.S. District Court. The new trial date for former UCDD Executive Director Wendy Askins and former Deputy Director Larry Webb is now set for July 15th. Attorneys for Askins say the motion seeking the delay was filed because they are scheduled to be involved in another federal trial on June 3rd, which was when the Askins and Webb trial was scheduled to begin. Askins and Webb are accused of misusing public funds in regard to the Living the Dream home in Putnam County.
