We wish we could print all of the photos taken during the weeks that lead up to graduation but since we can't, we decided to share a few of our favorites from the Seniors final lap around the high school.

Crockett County High School sent out notice today that all seniors received their two tickets for reserved seating on the field. You must have a ticket for reserved seating and you must be seated by 6:45 p.m. Children are not allowed on the field (no exceptions to the rules)

The Crockett County Sheriff's Department is reminding people that Highway 88, North Cavalier Drive and other connecting roads will be congested between the hours of 5-10 p.m. Friday, May 17 for Graduation. They are urging people who are not attending graduation to take other routes.

Very serious and volatile weather situation developing.

We are now under a Tor-Con of 7 in Western Tennessee. That means a 70% chance of a Tornado Warning becoming likely where you live which is extremely high for this time of year. The weather channel has mobilized to the West TN area as well.

As you may already know, we are under a tornado watch until 5pm.

Consider this your weather advisory. We will try to keep you updated - in the meantime, develop a plan - determine a safe place to take shelter away from windows and glass doorways, sturdy shoes, phones/weather radios charged, put together an emergency bag for your babies, and let your family members know where you are.

Reposting from a loyal reader: "So I was reading my newspaper at a local Starbucks this morning. A young mother and her two children came into the store. They passed me on their way to order and on the way out the mother looked at me and smiled. She then exited and stopped outside the door to have a conversation with her children. She then came back into the coffee shop and approached me, "I was talking to my kids, they were like, 'That man is reading a newspaper and not looking at a screen. He must be smart!'" I was stunned. I had to fumble for a reply and told her that I had seen recent studies that suggest learning is different between reading print (books, magazines, newspapers, etc.) as opposed to a screen. I urged her to make sure her kids understood this distinction. She nodded in agreement. Why the newspaper industry has not latched onto this insight and trumpeted it far and wide is beyond me!"
