Possible glitch comes to light concerning Senior Center

At the end of Thursday’s Anderson County operations committee meeting, District 3 Commissioner Josh Anderson brought up a matter under new business that was in response to an email sent out by County Law Director Jay Yeager. The email from Yeager, sent the day before the meeting, said that the landlord of the senior center, Teresa Portwood, has a buyer for the existing senior center. “When the sale is finalized she will let me know and we will have until Jan. 1, 2019, to vacate the premises,” the email read. “So there’s no option for us to continue the lease under the new buyer?” Anderson asked during the meeting. Yeager responded that he had not heard anything new, but as soon as he hears something from Portwood, he would let the commissioners know. “What she said to us yesterday is the possibility that it may be sold,” he said. “She was looking at Jan. 1. We don’t know that; it may fall through but we wish her the best of luck. She’s been a great landlord. As many things as we’ve had to change with her and that she’s tolerated…It’s been a good deal with Mrs. Portwood.” He said that even if this current offer falls through, there would be another one, since it’s being marketed. “We need to have somewhere for our seniors to go,” he said.

Round two TSAAA Football Playoffs

The Anderson County Mavericks (12-0) hosted the Elizabethton Fighting Cyclones (10-2) in the second round of the TSSAA 4A Playoffs last Friday night. In a game that many believed Anderson County would lose, the Mavs jumped out to 27-0 lead. While the spread offense of Anderson County is largely pass-heavy, the Mavs took advantage of Elizabethton’s inability to stop senior running back Ryan Moog. The Mavs stacked up 360 rushing yards on the Cyclones’ defense, and Moog had 227 of them. Senior quarterback Stanton Martin was elite once again, throwing for 201 yards and four touchdowns. The Anderson County offense was explosive all night long, and led the Mavs to a 54-21 win over Elizabethton. “These kids are going back to the quarterfinals and a shot at a state championship. For the program’s sake, it rewards all the hard work that went into tonight,” said Anderson County head coach Davey Gillum on the win.
