New promise for VA Clinic in Campbell County

New promise for VA Clinic in Campbell County

Plans for a Veterans Affairs outpatient clinic in Campbell County are renewed.

Originally, the Department of Veterans Affairs promised to build the facility in Campbell County in 2008.

Four years later, there's still no clinic.

Now, Tennessee VA officials promise start-up funds are in place for the facility.

Approximately $1 million from the Rural Health Initiative will help VA officials find the proper building to lease and make any renovations needed.

Local veterans believe the outpatient clinic will be busy.

LaFollette opens new public library

LaFollette opens new public library

LaFollette held a grand opening for their brand new public library Wednesday.

City council helped fund the new building, along with fundraising efforts by the community.

The library director says the library needed more breathing room.

"Everything was just jam packed; it felt like you were a sardine in a cracker box. Compared to here, you have room to breathe," said Nancy Green.

The old library was inside the city hall, but the new building is three times its size.
