    Joe, check out http://www.movoto.com/blog/top-ten/best-places-in-tennessee/. It lists Seymour as the 18th best place in TN to live, the top listing in Sevier County. I saw an article in the News-Sentinel alerting me to this. Seymour is one of only two (behind Farragut) in Metro Knoxville. This should add fuel to the fire for incorporation.

    Keep up the good work. i just subscribed to home delivery so I won’t miss any of your articles.


    • Thanks Colleen, all the support and positive information will greatly benefit the new city of Seymour.

      Hope to see you at the Seymour Public Library Jan 9th at 7pm.
