Strong Opposition Regarding Attempted Ouster of City Manager David Rutherford
Thursday February 25, 2016

The opposition appears to be growing regarding the attempted ouster of City Manager David Rutherford. While Mr. Rutherford himself has chosen not to comment on the issue, several others are being very vocal on his behalf. They describe Mr. Rutherford as professional, politically neutral, fair and honest. Mr. Rutherford’s supporters credit his leadership with helping to build a stronger relationship between City and County government.

While not stating exactly why he wants to fire Mr. Rutherford, Councilman Danny Wyatt expressed in the Crossville Chronicle that he wants to “slow it down”, which the opposition interprets as a return to the “Good Ole Boy” system and the death knell of Progress.

Crossville Mayor Pro-Tem Pamala Harris and Councilmember Danny Wyatt have called for the City Council to meet in Special Session this Friday, February 26, 2016 at 3 p.m. at City Hall to discuss suspending City Manager David Rutherford. Councilman Pete Souza will be absent due to a prior commitment. That essentially leaves Mr. Rutherford’s fate in the hands of Councilman Jesse Kerley.

However it pans out, Friday’s meeting should prove quite lively as the call has gone out to hundreds of people in both the City and County to attend the meeting to show support and possibly speak on behalf of David Rutherford. It’s been suggested those attending should arrive at 2:30 to grab the best seats. The Crossville City Council Special Called meeting begins at 3 p.m. and it is Open to the Public.

Cumb. Co. Sheriff’s Dept. Facebook Thursday February 25, 2016

The Cumberland County Sheriff’s Department has issued a warning regarding a Publishers Clearing House Scam. People continue to receive phone calls telling them they have won a cash prize and need to send money to cover the taxes and fees. Then another individual calls claiming to be Wells Fargo and says they have all the paperwork lined up to make the transfer once the money is received. Phone numbers have been identified as being based in Jamaica.

Tips to remember:
1 You never need to pay money to claim a Publishers Clearinghouse prize.
2 The Prize Patrol NEVER contacts winners by Facebook, Email or Phone.
#3 The ONLY way you will KNOW you won a Publishers Clearinghouse Prize is when the Prize Patrol shows up at your door as a complete surprise.

 


UT Coach Butch Jones Condemns Allegations
Alan Spector Thursday February 25, 2016

Tennessee Head Football Coach Butch Jones has released a statement condemning allegations levied in the sexual assault lawsuit filed against the university. A woman claims that, in November of 2014, she told former Vol Drae Bowles that she had been assaulted by another Vol, A.J. Johnson. Bowles is said to have driven her to get help. Later that day, teammate Curt Maggitt allegedly confronted Bowles in the locker room and punched him in the mouth. According to the lawsuit, when Bowles reported that incident to Butch Jones, the coach said he was disappointed in Bowles and that he had "betrayed the team." In his statement, Jones said, "The assertion that I ever attempted to belittle or demean a young man for taking action to help another person is absolutely false."
