Cumberland County Road Department employees found a Ruger 10/22 with scope last week while mowing grass on Plateau Road. The weapon was destroyed by a Bush-Hog. It had apparently been there for a long time. The Sheriff’s department reports what remained of the Ruger was rusted. A check of the serial number revealed it had not been reported as stolen. It’s not known to whom it belonged.
American Flags were targeted by thieves at two separate homes on Elmore Road Sunday night. In each theft, the flags were removed from poles that were in the front yard of the homes. Police have no suspects at this time.
Councilmen and the City Manager agree that complaints regarding brush collection tops the list of citizen complaints. The Crossville City Council, in regular session this week, approved a proposal from the City Manager to address brush collection issues. Previously, Cumberland Waste Disposal, the City’s trash collection contractor, would pick up brush twice a year for each route. Under the proposal approved by Council, brush will be picked up on normal pickup days provided the brush is securely tied in a bundle, and the bundles weigh no more than 35 pounds, be no longer than 4 feet in length and 3 feet in diameter. Pickup would be limited to 2 bundles per week. This is in addition to the twice yearly pick up with the grapple truck.
About 9,000 Volunteer Energy Cooperative Customers in Cumberland County will lose power briefly from 11:59 p.m. on Friday, October 17 until about 2 a.m. on Saturday, October 18.

VEC crews will be installing a remote 69 kV switch on the transmission line that serves the Crab Orchard and Lantana substations. The switch will speed up power restorations. VEC apologizes for any inconveniences the outage may cause.
