Before returning to our recent look at a jeweled truck, let me tell you what I heard this week. At the Newport Kiwanis Club last Tuesday, we learned that our co-Kiwanian Reid Bailey had suffered a stroke. His son, Marty Bailey, pharmacist and co-owner of Town & Country Drugs, went to pick up his father for church and discovered that Reid could not talk well. He was taken to the hospital and apparently suffered only a light stroke, as he was in rehabilitation at Life Care Center of Morristown by late last week.

NEWPORT-"We can live and serve in society because of you," CCHS FFA President Heath Smith said Monday, in his tribute to United States veterans attending the school's annual Veterans Day program.
Smith was joined by other student leaders in thanking and praising men and women representing nearly every branch of military service.
"Your sacrifices have made a difference in all our lives," said Seth Stokely, president of the school's 4-H Club, and Drama class students Reyna White and Caleb Griffith added their praises in the form of poetry.
US Rep. Phil Roe headed a list of government dignitaries in attendance, including State Rep. Jeremy Faison, Cocke County Trustee Rob Mathis, Cocke County Mayor Vaughn Moore, and Newport Mayor Connie Ball.
Returning to his alma mater as keynote speaker was Lt./Col. Michael Shelton, Retired.
