Architect Designated for Numerous School Repairs
Friday April 29, 2016

A lengthy portion of Thursday nights Cumberland County Board of Education meeting was spent receiving presentations from two architect companies and then voting upon which company is better suited. Knoxvilles Cope Associates and Crossvilles Upland Design Group both made presentations concerning eachs plan for necessary upgrades to Crab Orchard Elementary, as well as the roofs at North and South schools. The 6-3 vote leaned in favor of Uplands Design Group, mostly on the basis that they are local, and so would be closer in the case of emergencies or repairs needed later in the future. It was also revealed via previously unknown information about the schools septic system and some misplaced waterlines that the price for the numerous projects needing undertaken at Crab Orchard has risen substantially. Consequently, the design will be redrawn and the project rebid.

Friday April 29, 2016

The Crossville Post Office is entering its 24th year of supporting the National Association of Letter Carriers food drive on May 14th with the Stamp Out Hunger food drive. This drive is one of the most successful food drives in our nation.

This drive restocks the food banks for the summer months, after they are nearly depleted from the winter holiday season. All you have to do is place non-perishable food items in YOUR mailbox on Saturday May 14th for pantry volunteers or mail-carriers to collect. You may also take your donations to the post office. If you would like more information, please visit the NALCs website at www.NALC.org.

AP Thursday April 28, 2016

NASHVILLE, Tenn. (AP) -- Tennessee's Republican governor says he has signed a bill that allows mental health counselors to refuse to treat patients based on the therapist's religious or personal beliefs.

The American Counseling Association called the legislation an "unprecedented attack" on the counseling profession and said Tennessee was the only state to ever pass such a law.

Opponents say the legislation is part of a wave of bills around the nation that legalizes discrimination.

Supporters say the bill protects the rights of therapists and allows them to refer patients to more appropriate counselors.
