“Playing for White County High School has taught me that no matter what goes on, we are a family, and we stick together no matter what,” Joe Nelson, a senior pitcher and third baseman for the Warriors, said.

Nelson said that while the final season of a game he has played for 14 years is in question, he knows he’s not alone.

Nelson, who has worn the maroon and gray for four years, knows the game he loves has helped shape him into the person he is today and has directed him toward his future, which will include time at both Vol State Community College … CONTINUED

Only one going in the right direction

By Steve Qualls – Christpoint Church

I once read from a very popular author by the name of Max Lucado. He was playing golf with friends, and, after teeing off, he realized that everyone else was out of bounds. Hitting his second shot all alone, he placed his ball straight down the fairway, even distancing himself further from the rest. Finally he made his best shot of the day. The green was hidden above the hill, and he was certain he had placed the ball perfectly for a simple tap in easy putt. But, as he topped the hill, he noticed two things: his teammates were farther away … CONTINUED

The Right Stuff – By Donald Holman

Another week of our economy in freefall has passed, and, fortunately, American citizens are starting to notice! I would remind us all that our freedoms are always in the greatest danger in times of uncertainty, when people are sometimes tempted to trade their freedoms for the protection of an all-powerful government. May we resolve to keep a sharp lookout for that danger so that our free way of life survives for one more generation.

Let’s begin by talking about our Chinese flu numbers. In Tennessee, we have had 34,772 Chinese flu tests taken, with 3,067 positive results. We also show the … CONTINUED

Democratic Dialog – By Debra Wines

I have tried to keep politics out of my last couple of columns, mainly because the COVID-19 virus is apolitical.  It doesn’t care what your political leanings are, it doesn’t care about your social standing, and we are beginning to see it doesn’t care how young or old you are.  It can attack your body even when you believe you are doing everything in your power to avoid it.  It isn’t unusual for all of us to look toward our elected leaders for guidance, direction, and honesty.  Unfortunately, our elected leaders don’t seem to be on the same page, let alone reading … CONTINUED

In what was an unusual meeting of Sparta Board of Mayor and Aldermen, which had board members in the meeting room and department heads and visitors in the city hall lobby watching via Skype, some of the recent tragedies that are affecting the city were discussed.

Mayor Jeff Young explained the unique setting was to abide by the CDC guidelines for social distancing, keeping the number of people in one space to a minimum while maintaining six feet between individuals.

In addition to the board adopting new meeting policies to prevent the spread of COVID-19, several departments within the city are also seeing changes.


Lee Cemetery damaged in storm

Posted by | April 6, 2020 1:39 pm

Lee Cemetery is small, but the heritage is rich. There are headstones depicting military veterans. There are families: mothers and fathers, babies.

By Rachel Auberger

Lee Cemetery, tucked away behind some residential homes on Country Club Road, is one of approximately five African-American cemeteries in White County, and, in the early morning hours of March 29, it was damaged by strong winds that ripped through the county.

“A lot of people don’t know this cemetery is back here,” James “Knobby” Gwynn said about the century-old cemetery. “I didn’t even know it was back here until about 40 years ago when I moved back to Sparta.”

According to a property deed that Gwynn had in hand, the land for the cemetery was purchased from J.R. Lee and his wife, Josie, on … CONTINUED

City approves bid for sewer rehab project despite issues

Posted by | April 6, 2020 1:31 pm

By Rachel Auberger

Sparta Board of Mayor and Aldermen revisited the subject of bids for the Sanitary Sewer System Rehabilitation Project at their April 2 meeting, and, after much debate, a bid was finally accepted.

The request to approve the lowest bid for the project was originally made in the March 19 meeting, but after discussion about the engineer adjusting the columns in which numbers had been placed on one bid sheet, a controversial vote to rebid the project narrowly passed with four “yes” votes and three “no.”

The city’s attorney, Lynn Omohundro, was not present at the March 19 meeting, however, she was contacted about the legality … CONTINUED
