After nine years in Cumberland Caverns, Bluegrass Underground will be moving to a new location. Beginning in 2018 Bluegrass Underground will present its concerts at The Caverns, located within the base of Monteagle Mountain near Pelham.

Schools Closing for Eclipse
Jay Walker Friday August 18, 2017

The Warren County School Board has decided to close schools Monday for the solar eclipse. The decision came one week after it had been decided to keep schools open and use the eclipse as a teaching tool.
But since last week's announcement, Director of Schools Bobby Cox said feedback from parents and concerns about safety and liability prompted him to recommend closing schools on Monday.
Among the concerns were the number of teachers and staff who would be off that day, leaving substitutes, who may not have had access to viewing guidelines, in charge of supervising many children. The viewing glasses will be sent home with students on Friday.
The day will be treated as a snow day and school personnel will be paid.
With the decision, Warren County joins several other county school districts in Tennessee, including DeKalb and Rutherford, that will be closing for the eclipse.
