Events Of Past Year

Sections E and F of The Greeneville Sun's 2013 Benchmarks edition -- "Community" and "Perspectives," respectively-- are inside today's newspaper.

A one-of-a-kind reference, the annual Benchmarks edition is designed to highlight many of the most important events during the past 12 to 14 months in Greeneville and Greene County.

Benchmarks is traditionally a six-section, keepsake-quality publication of the Sun.

The first two sections, focusing on "Business & Industry," and "Government," were published March 15. On March 22 our sections on "Agriculture" and "Health & Education" were published.

All the special sections focus on issues, people and events that have "benchmark" significance for the community.


The "Community" section today features these highlights, plus others:

* The inside story about how NFL star quarterback Peyton Manning wound up in Greeneville on a quiet Sunday morning last summer to film a hush-hush Buick commercial that had U.S. 11E blocked off and many folks in town volunteering as extras.

* The Band Perry, the hometown kids who made good, and haven't forgotten Greene County. Their second album, "Pioneer," is due out on April 2 and local high school marching bands were recruited by the group to be a part of the album publicity. The Band Perry's much-anticipated free downtown concert is this Saturday evening.

* While we're on the subject of pioneers, the historic Babb Log Home, originally erected in 1787, was formally dedicated last June at its new address in downtown Greeneville, where it is on permanent loan to the Nathanael Greene Museum.

* Five local churches celebrated milestones during the past year: Mt. Tabor United Methodist; Meadow Creek Presbyterian, Mt. Pleasant United Methodist, Asbury United Methodist, and Cedar Creek Church of God.


This Benchmarks section is where to find in-depth interviews with key government and school officials.

Articles include:

* Greene County, with Mayor Alan Broyles;

* Greeneville, with Mayor W.T. Daniels;

* Baileyton, with Mayor Tommy Casteel;

* Bulls Gap, with Mayor Mike Solomon;

* Mosheim, with Vice Mayor Tommy Gregg;

* Tusculum, with Mayor John Foster;

* Greene County Schools, with Director of Schools Dr. Vicki Kirk; and

* Greeneville Schools, with Director of Schools Dr. Linda B. Stroud.


A copy of Benchmarks Sections E and F will be distributed with each issue of today's newspaper.

When all six sections have been published, the complete Benchmarks edition will be available online at for the next 12 months.

In addition, when all six have been published and distributed to subscribers and single-copy purchasers, the sections will be combined into one package and sets will be provided to the Greene County Partnership for distribution at no charge to individuals, families or business representatives that ask for information about the community.

Other sets will be provided without charge to all Greeneville and Greene County municipal government offices, to local Realtors' offices, and to other locations where information about the community might be requested.

A limited number of sets of the full six-volume edition will also be available for sale at the Circulation Department of the newspaper, 121 West Summer St., for $2 per set.

The Benchmarks project editor is Assistant Managing Editor Rich Jones; cover and page design for Benchmarks is by Hala Watson.
