Search continues for missing Scott Co. pastor

Dowell Phillips isn't one to miss church. In fact, he preached at Concord Independent Baptist each week.

"The only way he would miss is if he had to preach a funeral or something like that. Church was very important to him, especially his congregation," said Phillips' sister-in-law, Kim Newport.

His pulpit has been empty the past three Sundays, along with his family's hearts.

"His daughter's five years old. And she doesn't quite understand what's going on. She says, "Where's my daddy at? When's my daddy coming home?'" Newport said.

State to review Scott hospital deal by Dec 31

For many of the 213 employees who lost their jobs with the Scott County Hospital last May, this holiday season is a struggle.

"It's stressful, you try to stretch every penny," says former ER
Nurse Floyd Hutson, who started drawing unemployment benefits six months

It was the first time in his 45-year career.

He and several of his former colleagues say they're trying to hang on and wait for the hospital to reopen.

The Tennessee Attorney General's Office still needs to review the transfer of the hospital to the new operator, SM Promen.

Campbell parents pleased with increased patrol presence in schools

The Friday deadly school shooting in Connecticut was the reason Campbell County Sheriff Robbie Goins called for an increase in security for the area's 14 public and private schools.

"To make sure that parents take their kids to school in a safe environment, and teachers have a safe environment to teach," Sheriff Goins explained on Monday.

On Sunday, he announced plans to add at least one school resource officer, or SRO, to every campus in the county. Normally, SROs patrol Campbell County High School, Jellico High School, and the county's three middle schools.

Campbell Co. recalls 2005 school shooting

The scenes from the Connecticut school shooting Friday brought up memories of a tragic event that hits so close to us in East Tennessee.

On November 8, 2005, then 14-year-old Kenneth Bartley was accused in a shooting at Campbell County High School that killed Vice Principal Ken Bruce and injured principal Gary Seale and assistant principal Jim Pierce.

"Planning a party when my mom gets a call that the school is on lockdown," recalled Campbell County High School alumna Brittany Wright. Her 16th birthday was the same day as the shooting.
