Former Longtime Superintendent of Bristol Children's Home Denied Judicial Diversion
No jail time will be required of Rosa Emma Honeycutt, the former superintendent of a Baptist home and school for orphans in Bristol, convicted in January of failing to report child abuse. Honeycutt, who for more than 50 years was superintendent of Tri State Children's Home, faced up to a year in jail for failing to report that a 15-year-old boy sexually abused a four-year-old boy. Instead of jail time, a judge ordered her on probation but denied judicial diversion, which could have wiped her record clean, something Assistant District Attorney William Harper vigorously opposed. He said, “The biggest thing was the deterrent value both to Miss Honeycutt and to other child care providers. If you don't report child abuse, the state takes it seriously.”

Abingdon Participates in Statewide Tornado Drill
It was only a drill in Abingdon but important in case of a tornado. The town participated in a statewide exercise to test the readiness of communications and sirens. It was four years ago that an EF-3 tornado hit Glade Spring, killing three and injuring 50 others as part of widespread damage across the South. Abingdon police spokesman Tenille Montgomery says it's a fresh memory that causes people to take emergency preparations seriously. She said, “We've even gotten comments from people who practiced at home with their kids. And the schools got involved by having drills so they'll be aware when something really does happen.”
