Armadillos move into Morgan, Scott Counties

The National Park Service says it is keeping its eyes on an invasive species that could threaten an East Tennessee attraction.

Armadillos have been steadily migrating north from states like Georgia and Alabama in recent years. The animal, which prefers warmer weather, has been able to adapt to East Tennessee's cooler climate.

So far, the creature has been spotted in Morgan and Scott Counties around the Big South Fork. But, park rangers worry it is bound for the Obed Wild and Scenic River near Wartburg too.

Oneida teacher enjoys 50th summer break

Mary Ann Brewster has taught a lot of students since 1963.  She was hired by the Oneida Special School District that year as a first grade teacher.

"Then they put me in freshman English.  I taught that for a little bit.  Then they moved me up to junior English and senior English and I've been there ever since," Brewster told WBIR.

Fall 2013 will mark the teacher's 50th year instructing students in Oneida.  You don't have to ask her if she still enjoys her job.  You can tell she's happy by the smile on her face.
