GR Hampton held a balloon release in honor of their late classmate, Cameron Mullis.

By David Stewart

GR Hampton’s First Priority decided that one of their first priorities in remembering Cameron Mullis would be to write him a note. They would then attach it to a balloon and send it heavenward. The idea was approved and the word began to spread around the school. On the morning of the launch, bus driver Steve Mills used his bus to go to the IGA with some teachers. When they returned to the school, the bus did not deliver children. It was crammed full of almost 200 helium filled balloons. The balloons were golden, blue and red, golden to raise awareness of childhood cancer and GR’s school colors of blue and red. (Rumors of a floating bus are being passed around town.)

Everyone in Knox County who has ever known Sheriff John Pickard has described him as a man of few words, and Tuesday was no exception.

When Sheriff John Pickard heard he was having a ‘surprise’ birthday party at the Forcht Bank in Barbourville, he was counting on a few friends and family members and a potluck lunch. What the sheriff did not expect was to walk into a room full of his own deputies, Barbourville City police officers, detectives, state troopers, city and county officials and several prominent members of the Knox County Community, all waiting to shake his hand.
