3. Tell me, clickbait, which counties are tops in Tennessee? -

Clickbait internet teases are generally best avoided, being frequently of the “15 foods you should never eat naked” variety.

5. Common sense caves in fight with ‘God-given liberty’ -

They’re relatively rare, thank goodness, which makes them stand out even more: People in the grocery store, pharmacy or wherever who refuse to even pretend to wear masks.

Prompted by a petition launched by a former student, a committee is studying whether Franklin High School should dump its Rebels team name.

19. Lee dislikes lottery, likes education plans they make possible -

Republican gubernatorial candidate Bill Lee didn’t exactly shock anyone by saying he would fight legislative efforts to legalize sports gambling in Tennessee.

Lee, after all, is this campaign’s most likely to wear Jesus on his sleeve. And, it marked just one more opportunity for him to disagree with Democratic candidate Karl Dean, who, like most pragmatists, says he would sign sports betting into law if it’s done correctly.
