The Gideons have been banned from giving away Bibles on Bledsoe County school grounds. This comes after someone filed a complaint and the Bledsoe County School board decided to prohibit the distribution of all religious materials at its schools, determining that they violate school policy. Community members plan to protest the decision at the next Bledsoe County school board meeting.
Fred Stout was recently honored by the Cumberland County Soil Conservation District (CCSCD) as the 2015 Outstanding Livestock Producer at its Annual Awards Dinner. Fred Stout, and his wife Pam, operate a beef cattle farm in the Bowman Community of Cumberland County. They currently manage his beef cow/calf and stocker operation on approximately 2,000 acres of pasture, hayland and grazed forest.
His present operation consists of 460 commercial cows and 200 stockers. Some of the Best Management Practices (BMPs) that Fred incorporates in his farming operation are alternative watering systems, heavy use protection areas, cross-fencing for rotational grazing, as well as nutrient and pest management.
He has utilized the cost-share programs available through the Cumberland County SCD, the Natural Resources Conservation Service as well as the Tennessee Department of Agriculture.
Fred has done an excellent job managing his livestock operation as well as being a good conservationist and steward of the land.
