Very dumb idea LOL. Some poke fun at the Union County Sheriffs Department but they usually solve their cases pretty fast. I used to know a couple of reserve deputies there. I know the current acting supertendent of schools from many years ago. She went to high school with my wife and sister in Knoxville & was my cousins neighbor. She also was my daughters teacher in grade school.

I remember when I was a kid my dad was driving through Maynardville after dark on a Halloween night on his way either too or from a nearby wildlife management area. That would have likely been in the early 1960's. Chances are he was likely headed back home then too work that night.

Some pranksters in front of the old court house decided to pelt his station wagon with pears. Big Mistake on their part. He was a bow hunter and proceeded to get out and start stringing it up. They scattered real fast LOL. He had no intention of shooting but they didn't know it and not too many archery hunters were around back then :>}

For all the flack some neighboring counties give Union County it is really a great place to live.
