    You might be Knoxville's most destructive hometown bank if you're shooting a commercial on the 500 block of Union today because the old rehabed buildings are so pretty. Granted, they couldn't film it on their own block because somebody knocked everything down and left a big ugly hole.

    A Knox County teacher's statement to the school board regarding the pernicious effects of standardized testing goes viral.

    In response, the school system administrators say they want to have lunch with her.

    Tennessee is where the Republican Party has gone to die, so itís no surprise that every backwards, outmoded, regressive idea is embraced here. - Southern Beale

    Isn't it great that, even if no one goes out to run against them or vote for them, or basically that there's even an election going on at all, opponent-less candidates can still raise so much money?

    Pension provides only fire in quiet Knoxville election

    Although the other incumbents are without opponents, all reported raising money, most of it prior to the June filing deadline for candidates. Pavlis reported raising $16,355 and has begun paying off a loan of $4,000 he made to himself in his last campaign, he said.

    “I am going to pay myself back or my wife’s going to kill me,” he said, kiddingly.

    Palmer reported raising $11,248, and Grieve, $13,610, for this year’s election...
