East Tennessee in the News

It's been a long hot summer. And East Tennessee has made it to the National's in the News Department.

First there was the birthday guy who broke into the little league field snack stand down in Blount County. He'd covered his body with nachos and cheese before he was arrested by some real sharp sheriff's deputies.

Over in Hawkins County it was the deputies who were absent as several inmates made a break for it. Well, actually they walked out the unlocked back door of the jail. They didn't go far. Just over to the convenience store where they bought a couple of 6-packs and went back to their cell. It was after the second beer run that they got caught. The cell block party got a little loud and the deputies finally got a little wise.

Meanwhile up in Grainger County they broke out of the jail to protest yet another dinner of macaroni and cheese and turnip greens.

Like I said, a real long - sloooow -- summer.

Greetings from over Nashville way and welcome to the Rocky Top Brigade!

I heard all about the naked cheese man over in Blount County on Rick and Bubba. I even discussed it in my blog in this posting: http://bigorangemichael.blogspot.com/2004/07/random-things-in-news.html

Welcome to the Brigade and I look forward to seeing you around the Net.
