Mission of Hope gives away free bikes to kids in Oneida

The Mission of Hope gave away free bikes to kids of all ages in Oneida on Saturday.

Mission of Hope director Emmette Thompson said events like this one ensure that the kids got a chance to have a little, fun especially when they can't always afford it.

"So many of the families in this area never get to take the kind of vacation trips that a lot of us are used to. And you start realizing that a simple event like what we've done today, it's never taken for granted, and it's just a number of ways we're extending hope where we go," said Thompson.

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.

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.
