I went to watch a game at Union County on Friday. For anyone interested: The new UCHS is nice and modern, as are both their new turf field and the surroundings elements. It’s scenic and well-kept. UCHS has the best play-by-play announcer of any I’ve heard at any high school game. Maynardville now has three (3) pizza parlors, a modern McDonald’s, and a brand new Taco Bell. There are apparently throngs of Floridians and Ohioans who are scooping up property. Construction is the #1 industry in Union County, by a long shot. For a place that is so frequently derided, and at times rightfully so, it seems to be doing well and progressing, however slowly. Again, for any who may be interested in such things.
