We ate moving to Maryville TN. We would like to live in Blount County. I have more hours on severial websites trying to find the zip codes that are accepted by the sco systems. I would like to send my children to Heritage high school. All the zoning maps I have found are in color codes with no specific information. I am able to type in an exact address to locate the school, but as we are just starting to look I do not have an exact address to use. Is there anywhere I can find this information or receive any help with this matter?

Would like to contact Steve Speer regarding the 31st Infantry Regiment. My father was one of the Army men sent to help from the Phillipines to Japan during the 1923 earthquake. I have him on tape telling the story if Steve would be interested. Our service men deserve a mention of what they did to help those poor people. He can also tell you the ship they traveled on to get there, how they took nurses with them, etc. Please contact me if you are interested in his story. Thanks, June

In response to Billie Charles Riddle Jr. I just wanted to tell Billie that he is not alone in saying he wished would have asked his papaw about his papaws past. I think most of us feel this way... I miss my grandparents and the wisdom and understanding they had of life. If you still have grandparents... cling to them.

I have been to Townsend over 15 times now, and plan to retired in that area in another 10 years. You southern folk are very kind and caring people, and that is what I want to be around when I retire. And did I mention I love the mountains?
I can search all day long and never find another community website like the Blount Web (and your other web sites related to Blount County) which continue to edify and give God the praise and glory for the work. The support of local businesses you have in the directories serves as a testimony to the citizens of the county, and a testimony to the webs sites themselves. Not many web sites dare mention any words concerning Jesus in these days.

Steve: You have created a remarkable resource for Blount County-- truly a labor of love. I appreciate your efforts. I frequently use your site, which often has readily accessible information difficult to find elsewhere. Again, thank you!
My wife and I have visited Townsend in 2008 and 2009.Each time we come we stay a few days more.W e hike on different trails and always bicycle the Cades Cove area of The Great Smokey Mountains.I went on a bike ride from a bike shop in Maryville called Cycology Bicycles.The ride was led by one of the stores employee[45 miles of hils and flats].
RECENTLY VISITED AND LOVED IT. WANT TO COME BACK. EVERYONE WE CAME IN CONTACT WAS VERY NICE AND HELPFUL.
Love the Peaceful Side of the Smokies!

Found your site, looking for a list of up coming Art & Craft Festivals, for this year. You have put together a wonderful site ! THANK YOU ! I found it very interesting that SO many people, from all over the world, have signed The Guest Book...I humbly say (everyday)...I AM BLESSED TO LIVE HERE !!!
I just want to take a moment to compliment your website,and I was delighted to see my church listed there. Our church has warm, loving people of all ages, worshipping God and hearing the word of God taught. There are no rituals, or money going where you do not wish for it to go. Calvary Chapel Blount on Gill Street tithes 1/3 of the monies given to Gospel for Asia, reaching out to teach those who do not know who Jesus is. I want to encourage anyone looking for a church to visit us. We have about 40 attending, so come see us and bring a friend.

Born and raised in Townsend, left about the age of 9. Have grave plots at Bethel. Love the area and people. I remember the logging era, dad worked for the Little River Lumber Company. I recall walking across the mill pond on logs. To do something like that today a kid would be grounded. We visit Townsend every chance we get and hope to return as we are, before returning in a box. Thanks for keeping Townsend HOME.

I HOPE TO ONE DAY WHEN I RETIRE, I WOULD TO MOVE THERE BECAUSE IT IS SO PEACEFUL THERE AND NOT VERY CROWDED. THE PEOPLE ARE SO NICE AND FRIENDLY. YOU ALL HAVE A WONDERFUL PLACE THERE.
This is a great sight that shows the wonderful areas The Smokies have to offer. My husband introduced me to Townsend & Cades Cove on our honeymoon 15 yrs ago and I have been hooked ever since. We lived in Roanoke, VA for 12 of those years so visits to Townsend/Cades Cove were plentiful each year. Now we live in North Central West Virginia which makes the trips not as often but our love for the area is still strong. Thank you for all the wonderful pictures and information,,, if helps to keep us informed in between our visits.

Everytime I start getting homesick I come on here and check out the pics. It helps for a little while at least. I have moved all over but nowhere is like Maryville. I love Maryville and will probably end up there again sometime.

We love Cades Cove and the Townsend area.
As a direct descendant of John Oliver, any new information about Cades Cove is of interest to me. My wife and I picked up a copy of the Townsend Traveler while visiting there a few weeks ago. As always, we enjoyed our trip to the Cove and surrounding areas.
We are building a log home in Townsend. Should be done this fall. It is a dream come true for us.The smokies will be across the street from our deck. We are so lucky to be in such a beautiful place.
Jennifer... thanks for pointing out the non-working links. TheBlountWeb has recently been moved over to a faster server and I am finding other links which have failed to work after the transfer. I will take care of this very soon.
The photographs are lovely, thank you. However, none of the links worked on expressions, at least most of them that I clicked did not anyway. We are looking to move to Blount County for our retirement. Perhaps Maryville? We are still doing research on the area as it is early days yet. Thank you for such a lovely website.

Glad to be back home in Blount County! Many years in Central Florida (it's hard on a Vol fan to live around all those 'Gators!). Just fulfilled a dream and opened a new insurance agency on E.

We are truly blessed....

Due to the attitude in these little messeges at the bottom of these pages, "due to the nature of some of these photographs (high in resolution) we ask that you have patience waiting for them to load... if, on the other hand you are a person who is impatient then you need to leave" -- i feel more offended about that, than anything to do with the quality of pictures. The word "leave" just doesn't leave me feeling at home when i come to this site. I love the smoky mountains, don't get me wrong, but I would hope for more of a subtle appology that you, "could not provide a faster loading time for dial up users, our deepest appologies".
Keep up the good work. I enjoyed your site otherwise =)
Thanks for working on such an informative site! Keep up the good work! Keep God first in all you do and just watch what happens! God Bless!
I'm seriously considering relocating to Tennessee for it's beauty and serenity. Blount County is one of the areas I've narrowed as a place I'd like to raise my children.
Son moved to Maryville in May. Would like to know more about the area.
Hi folks, looks like a great web page! Looking for any info on Rockford TN, especially the old churches that have cemetary info. Doing McGill genealogy work!Thanks, and may GOD bless!
this is awesome
Great website! My family and I just moved here from Clarksville, TN (I just retired from the Air Force after 20 years, Ft. Campbell, KY was my last duty station) and we love it. We are excited about exploring the county and love the mountains. Keep up the great work. Thanks.
Steve, love the new site, check out this website to possibly link to https://www.presidentialprayerteam.org/ it doesn't matter if you like Bush or not, if your a Christian you should pray for our president and our troops this is a wonderful sight if you will take the time to look at it. Thanks

To Blount County Web Site
From Julie Scholl
Hi there, I just love this site. I found it by accident. I recently bought a house in Maryville, TN, off of Timberline drive.(I am from Miami,FL) I want to know all I can about the area. I want to know if 'you' sell any T-Shirts with the logo you have on the first page of your web site. "Blount County Tennessee theBlountWeb". I am also looking for Maryville TN T-Shirts. I have asked around and I can't find any. Only Cracker Barrell sells TN shirts. And I bought them. If any one can help me the shirts, pls respond. I love the 'Look Rock Cam'.
Hope to hear from you.
Thanks from Julie Scholl 6/25/04 email@example.com
I just logged on to your web site, it certainly is informative, I have not read it all, but will. I have a small housecleaning business with above average references and all professonal clients.I am middle age and doing it for 7 years,always looking for clients.I will go back to reading now, lol
enjoyed your site very much. Especially
the little river lumber pictures. i was
hoping for more on the museum. My grandfather Thomas Newton Walker was injured by falling lumber in loading a
little river lumber boxcar in 1910 in
the month of november which caused his
death and i've been unable to find any
information-so if anyone seeing this has any info or knows where i might look, please email.Thanks.Rose

good work on the web site. I like the info organization and new photos of area attractions.
Great site, Steve!
Your site has been very helpful to me. I am moving to Maryville from California in early November. I would like to know if you have a busline in Maryville and specifically if there is a bus or other transportation from Knoxville to Maryville as I will need to get there fro the Greyhound station. Your Christian stand on your site is very admirable. Thank you for providing such a helpful site. Sincerely Noelle
Enjoy your website very much as I was born and raised in Maryville. Do you have any great pictures of the mountains that I can downloand. I am going to try and listen to Maryville High and Maryville College Football games this weekend. Thank you for listing the auido site. My brother in law in head coach at Maryville College and it would be great to listen to the games. I also have a friend whose son plays for the redrebels. Thank you again for a great web site.
wonderful site stevo
I'M COMING UP OCT 20-25. I'M A GREAT GREAT GREAT GRANDSON OF JOHN OLIVER. I'M HOPING TO FIND ALOT OF INFO. ABOUT MY FAMILY TREE AND HISTORY
'From'? I don't know what this means.
My wife and I always enjoyed the fall festival. We went for three years but this year will be the exception. Except for Joe Nichols, it's just a bunch of no-talent morons who couldn't entertain an ant in a matchbox. I think it takes a lot of nerve to charge that much to see Alabama. They're a joke to me. I wouldn't go if if it was free. You can't do any better than George Jones and he didn't want that much money. He cares about his fans and quality, not money. I wish everyone could say the same. What? They say it's they're fairwell tour. Yeah. Sure. They'll be back scamming us all for more money in a couple of years and the mighty city of Maryville will probably fall for it. We've already had some great acts here. We've had George "the KING" Jones, Clay Walker, Travis Tritt, Leann Womac and Joe Diffie. Give us some more entertainment like that if you want us to be happy.
Thirty dollars for a weekend wasn't bad at all but hundreds of dollars for one night is ridiculous. We can't and won't pay it. It wouldn't matter if you had someone there worth seeing which you don't, anyway. Alabama is crap in my book and I'm not alone. The only way you could come close to competing with George Jones being here last year would be if you had Randy Travis, Alan Jackson, Garth Brooks, Brad Paisley, Leann Rimes, Reba MacIntyre, Toby Keith, Tim McGraw, Willie Nelson and Randy Travis. We'd pay for that but the amount shouldn't have to be exhorbitant. That's obscene. Do the citizens of Maryville have a voice at all? Are you listening to this? Is it possible that we might occasionally have some concerts which weren't country? I mean, is there any way that we could have Alice Cooper, KISS, Aerosmith, Ted Nugent, Judas Priest or something in that league? I'm forty years old and I'm not the only one who feels this way. Trust me. I'm not. Let's just be fair here. Get some good and reasonable talent and don't charge a fortune. We'll be there. I promise, we will. With that being said, I'll bid you a good evening. Take care and best wishes, Frank.

A friend told me about your site, and it is delightful! As a fan of the east Tn. region, and the Maryville area in particular, seeing the webcam shot instantly reconnected me to the area! The site design and layout is refreshing, and easy to navigate, making the discovery of events and information a pleasure. Thank you for the site, and kudos to the designer, too.

Anyone who might have any information on him please contact me at the following: P.O. Box 686 Junction City, KY 40440.

Lana J. Boyd
Very nice place to live as for as raising children, and being something other than a minority, but I wish I'd gone to see the other parts of the U.S. before deciding to stay here all my life, I sincerely believe that the ones of us who chose to live here forever, became complacent and a little narrow minded, we have little or
no experience with diversity! As for as jobs and the economy,
we are the worst I've ever seen. Nepotism runs rampant in our
county, it is who you know or who you are that gets you hired on really decent paying jobs! Minorities certainly aren't high on the list. Yes, Blount County might be a wonderful place for those of you who were born with a silver spoon in your mouth, but if you weren't, here, you are a nobody!
Sounds like a lovely place. I would love to come visit sometime.
I LOVE BLOUNT COUNTY!!!!!!!!!!!!!! i have lived here all my life and i just wnated to say that i love it that you blount county
Great site- keep 'em workin!!

Web site is great! Look forward to checking in often.
Very informative and well laid out. Enjoyed browsing.
Thank you for this wonderful site. My husband and I visit the Townsend area 2-3 times a year. But I get Tennessee withdrawl very easily when we're back in hot, flat, ugly Florida. Your site helps get me through till the next trip. We'll be there again in September. Where could I rent bicycles? Thanks. Sharon
Steve - just started looking. Thanks for your help today.
I've just discovered this site. Though I've not seen everything yet, I am sooooooo impressed. Thanks
Will look into the pics and find what you are asking for... give me a little time as there may be other photos I took but did not publish. No charge please.
I realy enjoy seeing the Music Makers of Rocky Branch ! I'm the banjo picker with the John Deere hat. You can see a little of me in one of your photos. There is also a pic of one of my pickin buddys who just passed away.
It's in album #2, pic # 23. He is the tall grey head with guitar standing next to a lady in red. I was wondering if there's any chance of getting a copy of that photo ? My printer will not copy from the website very well.
This would mean so much to me if I could get a copy as he was my best friend. I would be more than happy to pay the cost.
Please let me know if you can do this.
Steve, this new directory design is the very clearest ever! Congratulations! I can't believe all the beautiful material you have collected, and now it's presented so I can find it all! Thank you for all your good work.

I think your site is fabulous, just as Townsend is fabulous. It is one of our favorite spots in the Smokies, especially Smokin Joes. Townsend and all of Blount County are truly the remarkable side of the Smokies.
Just saw the new page.Very nice.Keep up the good work! Proud of you!
Fantastic web site!
Hey everybody who helped on this did a great job. the pictures are great and yall deserve so much. this is a great web sight. i loved it. thank you and keep up the good work. and be sure to update it.
I think the web is very well organized and informational. I like the pics that go along with it. Just continue to update when needed..
This is another test of the Guestbook Entry Monitor System. This is ONLY a test. This entry will be read, edited, and finally deleted remotely by qualified personnel. If this had been a REAL monitoring system, it would have required approval BEFORE it was seen by the public, and that is always an option. Of course, if this was a real test you would be instructed to a testing center near you for further instructions.
Cool beans! The chance to delete, edit, and respond without being a computer-guru makes it easy to imagine having a guestbook of your own.

Our family will be moving to Blount County in June.... We are very excited about our upcoming move. My husband nor I have jobs in the area at this point...we were both born in NC and have lived here all our lives and are ready to spread our wings so to speak. After alot of research we have found Blount County will be a great place to make our new home and raise our children. My husband has a college degree in social studies and is currently working to get his Tn teaching certification. He also has a law enforcement background. Any contacts anyone could help us with in reference to new employment would be truely appreciated. I have been a homemaker for the past 5 yrs but am also looking to get back into the work force. My experience is in customer service and preschool teaching. Again, we love the area already and can't wait to truely make it OUR home. Thanks for a great web sight!

We own a cabin in Townsend called "Maggie's Cabin". Even
though we only get to the mountains 3-4 times a year we feel
right at home when we're there. During the times when we
can't be there we'll visit the website and it's almost like
being there. Keep up the good work. Only thing wrong that
I can see is that the 2002 Schedule of Events needs to be
put on the site. We look for this all the time so that we
can schedule when we're "coming home". Thanks again!

East Tennessee is the favorite place our family visits. Great web-site.

Alisa, Thanks for your comment. You are absolutly right, pictures on this site do not do justice to the area. If you have any that would, please send them and I would be more than happy to publish them and give you credit. It is a hard thing to publish high resolution photographs on the internet but we do try to do the best we can. We look forward to your contributions.

Dear Steve, what a surprise to get your email that Morag Rae, a girl I met when I was working with the Baptist Mission in Zimbabwe back in 1985, was looking for me. I am trying to get hold of her now. Thanks for helping me, and for providing such a service for us here in Blount County. I teach government/economics at Alcoa High School, and I assign a local issue paper each term. Several students have used your web site for their research. It is helpful to have such information at hand.

Ran across the site doing the obvious Blount search. I think I found where I'm going on vacation this year!
I first saw the website after looking for a webdesigner. Mr. Speer was recommended to me from my accountant. After going through His site at the blount web, I knew he was the one to help me. Blount County is one of the most beautiful counties in Tennessee, but what I am most impressed with is the witnessing and the uplifting of Christ in this site. If only more Christians would be so bold. God bless you Steve and Thank you for sharing the greatest love story of all with us...

I know that the citizens of Maryville are concerved about population growth in the area, but please don't lock the gate till after I get there. I have pounding away at my computer making plans and arrangements for a smooth transition to the area. This site has been a big help as well as a lot of fun. I want to use it as a link in my web page. Thanks Steve, I hope to meet you some day.

VERY IMPRESSED WITH THE WEB. Met Steve Spear in the lot at BI-Lo a short time ago. He suggested e-mail. Hope this is the way he meant.
I belong to the Sultana Association of Descendants and Friends. Ref. monument at MtOlive cemetary. We have started a movement through Senator Thompsons office to establish a memorial stamp about the sinking of that ship in 1865 killing nearly 1800 Union soldiers. Would there be a place on the site to publicize the endevor? Many of the those on the boat were members of the Third Tennessee Cavalry (a Blount County unit). Will be happy to furnish necessary details and source of some graphics.
Thanks and well done,

I wonder if the Blount County Historical Society has a website that you could use on the Blountweb as a link? I have read through the book that the Society has put out, and it has information about all of the Courthouses that were built and burned down here in Blount County.
See http://www.korrnet.org/bcghs/ for the Society page. Unfortunately, all they offer online is their book list, but that may be a help to some. Enjoy!
I found out about the site from Homer Whitehead.I pull it up about every day to check the Times local news.I grew up in Blount county,and like to keep up on everything.I an a grad of Everett High class of 1950,so keep up the good work...

We wish we did! I can only hope that other viewers will write with information about links and library materials. We would love to make more information available online about this and other local sites, but we have to rely on the public, sometimes, to be our research staff.
The point of theBlountWeb is sharing, so that anyone's effort makes everyone's life better. Send us anything about Blount County, and we will find a way to share it with our whole community.
I live In Blount County, and I think the best places to go if you are visiting here are: the Smoky Mountians, Pigeon Forge, Gatlinburg, Townsend, and the Old City in Knoxville. There are alot of cool things to do here if you just look for them. Have Fun!!!!
Love the Lookrock cam and being able to see the Smoky Mtns. Great info. for the area. I am sending this website to friends, out of state, so they can view the Smokies without having to travel.
Enjoy reading Blount County news.
I like this site very much
why should we relocate to your area?
Who is suggesting that you should? Most residents like it here, but you might miss your maple trees... This is mostly oak-hickory forest down here. Of course we also have TONS of dogwoods, and that makes a spectacular springtime! Come visit, sometime... I think you would like it. Respectfully, Michael.
I like Timothy McConnell's web suite because I can see my granddaughter when I want to.

I LIVE IN MARYVILLE AND PASTOR A CHURCH IN FRIENDSVILLE, AND I REALLY LOVE HAVING THE BLOUNT WEB. IT HAS GIVEN ME
A LOT OF INFORMATION, THAT I WAS NOT AWARE OF.
Glad to see Beautiful Bount represented. If I can help promote the site, let me know!
Thank you, Lisa, that is the sort of enthusiasm we need! The best promotion is to tell your friends what is online here; we try to look good to the search engines, and the businesses get a special separate effort. What we need most is people telling us what is happening in our community, and inviting others to come look.
Thanks again, Michael.
Wow!! I have lived here all my life and I still find new places to see. Fly fishing is my hobby. I want to see more on the trout reports and local fishing spots.
enjoy your web site and check it frequently. i think this is an excellent way to help keep the communities connected. i have two children and check the parks/recs. section and have not seen it updated in a while. also, i agree w/a previous visitor that a bulletin board would be of interest to many. thank you for your site and i love the pictures!
Welcome to Maryville and Blount County. Now please......
THIS IS MY FAVORITE PLACE IN THE WORLD....WOULD LOVE TO BE
I have lived here all my life and there's not a better
place in the world in which to live.

John A. Todd
We love the area. Not like the hustle and bustle of Gatlinburg-Pigeon Forge.
REALLY NICE!!! LETS YOU HAVE AN IDEA WHAT IS GOING ON IN THE COMMUNITY OR SURROUNDING AREAS!!
Thanks for continuing to have Hubbard Elementary's web page on Blount Web. We will be updating it soon. The main thing I appreciate about your site is how regularly you update it. Thanks for all your time and effort.
What about a bulletin board site where people can leave messages? For instance, I met a guy one night & only got his first name & where he works. If I could post a note maybe somebody would know him. Thanks
I am an 8th grader at fairview elementry school. i really like the BLountWeb it is really cool! Today is the first time i have been on the blountweb since last year. my friends dad was showing it to me today. He was updatiing something on it, and he showed me the look rock cam. The look Rock cam is the best part of the Blount Web it is really neat the way we can see our beautiful home. So what i am trying to say is thanks for giving us the privilege to learn about and see the scenic sites in blount county.
I grew up in Maryville and visit the area and my family frequently because, well, you know. Southern roots grow deep! I love being able to log onto the web and see pictures of places that are near and dear to my heart. But what happened to the Millenium House? And the Maryville Schools web sites could use a little work. I'm curious to know who's still teaching! But those are just two tiny little issues. Overall, I think the Blountweb is great. Thanks!
Pat and Jill Simonic
We were born and raised in Blount County, but my husband's job took us to Virgina. We miss home very much and try to visit as often as we can, but it's never enough. Thank you for giving me a place to go when I need to be home and can't get there!

I just got my net going and wanted to check out your site since I had heard so much about it. I finally found how to navigate some and yours is the first I tried besides our Lodges site.
Thanks for allowing me to try your site. It is real nice.
Jerry w Crumley Sr
Its great to know that we have information like this about our local area and schools at our finger tips.Thanks Mike

Love your website.Keep up the good work!
P.S.Wife and I own property in Rarity Bay on Lake Tellico.Can't wait to build.We "love" Tennessee!
I am a member of the Blount Home Education Association. We are interested in having a home page on the Blount Web with information about home education. I sent a similar message to you about a year ago, but never got a response. I am sending this from the Blount County Schools computer lab, so please respond to my e-mail address at email@example.com. Thanks!
I really enjoy this site and all that it has to offer. I think that you have done a wonderful job with it.
I'm interested in tracing the family tree and came across the site on the web. Does anyone out there have connections with the Blount's of Sodington in Worcestershire, England?
Maybe some readers have more to offer, but we did trade links with a site in Texas www.blount.com, and they have geneological links. I found them by clicking on Search in the navigation bar above, and typing 'geneology'. Good luck!

We were looking for the Crest Lanes web page. Don Patterson (Maryville, Tenn) recommended that we visit the site. The Blount county webpage is very nicely done.

i am looking for info on the trail of tears. my great-grandmother made the journey with her family. if anyone has a website i would greatly appreciate it. loved your website also.
Thanks for all your hard work on our Smoky Mountain Invitational Swim Meet site! It looks great! Larry Little called me tonight and told me you had all the SMI stuff up and running. He sounded very excited and very pleased. I can see why - you've done a great job. Thanks again. I'll be e-mailing the latest results to you each day at the end of the meet. Saturday should end around 4 PM so I should have results to you by 5 or 6 PM (I have to bring the results home to e-mail them to you). Sunday should end around 7 PM and since that is clean up night, my results to you will be even later - probably 9 or 10 PM.
Keep up the great work! Rebecca

I love the BlountWeb
Hello, love this website. My family and I live in the Top
of the World Community on the flats of Chilhowee Mountain.
We hike to the Look Rock Tower all the time. We didn't know
there was a camera at the tower. Keep up the good work.Thanks.

Love your Blount Web ! as my family are from Blount County I will spend alot of time reading your web. Would love to hear from any Helton's or Lowe's
Cumberland Co Tn
I am very impressed, didn't know you exsisted, but couldnt find Murray! I am not finished but will recommend your site to the forneigners that make fun of us Tennesseans!!!! Donna, and yes it was fun and interesting Murray.
What a wonderful site. I have been surching the internet for information on living in the smoky mountain area. Your site is one of my favorite. Anyone with information or a viewpoint on living in the smokey mountains, please email me. I would like all the information i can get before I make the move. Thanks!!!
Tampa FL, Farmington MI and now Maryville TN
Wonderful article and pictures of Millenium Manor, I am so glad to see it being advertised for others to see and appreciate.

I am a native Blount countian; who has seen much of the continental U.S.
I am sincerly moved and proud of this site. I still believe there are places where a community exists peacably and with admiration of the natural beauty the almighty God provides. This site expresses so well the essence of why this area is indeed special. Don't change a thing and keep up the great work. Thank you. I can't submit this without saying a word about Ben. Obviously an intelligent Christian young man, I felt the spirit move on me like I haven't felt in awhile when reading his testimony. Praise be to Jesus Christ our heavenly father.
Wow! I just visited theBlountWeb Presidential Campaigns site, and read through the three or four candidates' web sites I thought might interest me... and I found my candidate! This is a wonderful thing Steve has done for us, to collect all this information in one place! There is enough information here to make informed decisions, which is what our self-government relies on. I even volunteered for my candidate online! Thanks, Steve... this is yet another way to use the internet to bring us together, and to help us each do our best.

Just now beginning to look at your website. We are one-half mile up Chilhowee Mtn. Just built a little house in the woods. Have lived in TN 19 years with the dream of building in the mtns. Moved into our home about a month ago.
Sondra, I'm happy for you! And if you see a fellow in an orange shirt cycling his way to the fire-tower, that is my dad. His 70 years rest lightly on him. May we all be so blessed.
I love it! I come here almost every day.great job. I especially like the Christian atmosphere.
J. Brian Tipton
love the lookrock cam.
Just checking in again to say I've enjoyed the changes, especially the new civil war history stuff and railroad pictures. Thanks!
I've been wanting to visit the site for a lone time, but I kept forgetting. Well I finnaly got here. I think everything is great, but you should add a chat place; so that, the people of Blount County could commune with one another.
Hi Linda! Don't be shy. please...
I am thankful to live in an area that has a school system that cares about the people. As a parent and teacher, I know how hard you work... Keep up the communication!!!
I Love the saying, under the Blount Web site seal, being a former YANKEE we appreciate this beautiful area and know that GOD DOES REIGNETH HERE. Keep up the good work.
I think that it's partly because so many of us in Blount County are relative newcomers that we need a medium like the BlountWeb to demonstrate our potential to each other, old and new alike. Appreciating God's blessings, we can give to strangers and discover friends. Anyone willing to share their strengths or announce their needs will likely find a good place among us, and room in theBlountWeb, too.
Would like any information on Blount Cty/Maryville, Tn. sent to me at 418 Shadowood Dr. Smyrna,Tn 37167. We will be transferring later this year. School and community info helpful. Thanks
Ok, this to our neighbors: I returned Laura an email to make sure she knows that inside our 1700 pages we have an almost 100 page section for Schools in Blount County, another 95-some pages on recreation and parks, and better than 50 pages for local churches. I also pointed her to our Realty Directory. If you know of other good sources, please let her (and us) know about them. Thanks.
Reginald L. Bullock
This site needs to be duplicated for many other cities in the nation.
It is a very comprehensive work in progress that seems to get better over time. It will be interesting to see the site January 2000. Thanks for keeping us informed,
Well thanks, we hope YOU ALL will see us in January 2000 too! (see our Y2K advisory if you're in doubt.) Steve says if he'd had the money he'd have bought the names 'sevierweb' and 'loudonweb' and so forth. But on reflection, there's more than enough to be done here at home. And you know? Home is where the heart is. We also look forward to more labors of love.

I LIKE BLOUNT COUNTY I HAVE LIVED HERE FOR TWO YEARS AND THINK ITS THE CUTEST LITTLE TOWN. EVERYONE WAVES AND EVERYONE SMILES.. :-)
I like everything about TN, especially it,s people including
my ancestors. A mighty fine place to visit, year round.
Nice work - keep on expanding
What has happened to the Look Rock camera?
Enjoy your site.
Well, rats! It seems the server for the Look Rock Cam site is down... let's hope it doesn't last long. It's a beautiful view, eh?
Sure would like to visit sometime. I was in a campground close to you; I think it was close to Oak Ridge, and had a Gristmill as a restaurant and the campground was on the hill. Can you find it for us? We would like to come again! Thanks
Staci A. Long
I am glad that Blount County has a web page. I will have to explore this site more closely...
Leadership Blount County
GREAT JOB!! This is a beautiful site. Just wondered if there is a place for organizations to be listed. Our web site is www.leadblount.nxs.net Thanks for the opportunity to spread the good news!
We have prepared a page of non-profit organizations at www.blountweb.com/nonprofit where we hope to let folks know some of the good work being done in their community. We invite everyone to look it over, let us know what we've missed (which is lots, I'm sure), and participate as best they can in the groups that speak to their hearts.
GREAT WEB SITE IT HAS ALOT OF INFO.
Big Stone Gap,Va.
I enjoy your website. I think it is very well done and contains useful info about your area. Keep up the good work. Thanks, Lynn Cassell

I loved the Recollections of Murray. Puts me somewhere in Missouri, like Hannible. I can't wait to read all the answers to the questions that this episode put in my head. Sounds like someone I may have known or someone we all may have known at some time.
Rickey E. Moore
I found that the BLOUNT WEB was most informative even though
I have been a resident for 44 years of BLOUNT COUNTY.
Hey guys, how's it going! I'm praying that everyone supports this, because I know this will be a great thing for Blount County! Do you plan to have a chat room for the people of Blount County?
Well, we expect to open a Discussions forum in the next couple of weeks, and we invite our viewers to send us ideas for topics and even comments to help us start. We don't feel that it should be our role to provide unmonitored chat-space, but we have considered establishing a net address exchange. Write me, please, all of you, and give us some guidance here. Thanks.
Great pictures, especially the butterflies and Cades Cove. Lets see some more!! Great work, keep it up!
Steve, the designer, tells me that there's room for all manner of artwork in theBlountWeb. He says it better in www.blountweb.com/expressions than I could.
Happened to see your article in Maryville Times. Great web site.
Great web site has a lot of info on it.
Saint John N.B
This is a great site. Something for everyone of all ages. I like pougles contribution to the site alot. Keep up the good work. I'll be back again.
It's a little odd, but I like it too. Watch it grow.
Great work. Glad to see church listings, including ours, and what a great way to keep involved in community happenings. Thanks, guys.
God bless you guys for the wonderful work you're doing!! You're helping so many of us and Blount County should be very grateful to you. I know I am! The graphics are great and you guys are doing such an expert job. What can I say except you're wonderful!!!! Thanks guys!
Thank you. This is meant to be an umbrella site for our whole community, to help create and maintain that community. (See What is theBlountWeb?). We look forward to ever more participation from the public in defining and expanding theBlountWeb.
Nice page! Makes you want to write just to see your name in print! But what if I change my mind? How do I 'unsend'? Not that I want to right now, you understand...
Oooh! Well, it's like email. Once you send it, it's gone. But if you need to, email us and ask nicely, and we'll make it go away.
Dear Webmasters, I read about your site in the paper this morning and was pleased to see Our Lady of Fatima Catholic Church listed. However, the address has changed as we sold the previous church and are currently building a bigger new one at 860 Louisville Road, Alcoa, TN 37701. Also we have started a web of our own and would be pleased to have it listed on your site. The Web is at www.ourladyoffatima.org. Many thanks for your kind attention.
Oops! We compiled our list of churches (see www.blountweb.com/churches) from many sources, and no doubt there are still errors and omissions. I'm sure also that there are many congregations with web sites we don't know about. In addition, you may have noticed that we provide a free message board for any who can use it. Spread the word.
OK, so you haven't been loafing! The new Business Directory looks and works great, but if you're ready to 'tidy up' here's a few nitpicks: (Editor: an embarrassingly long list of errors has been deleted...). Keep up the good work!
Thanks for the help. Somehow you never see the mistakes until they're printed. Luckily, unlike a newspaper, we can fix ours. Sure, we're embarrassed, but we just clean up and move along...
The new pages look great! I love the colors! I went in to check the Schedules and Events, and I guess you were right! It does need updating! So I added our Newcomers of Blount County Meetings and Coffees at the First United Methodist Church of Maryville. It was easy! Thanks.
Thanks, Bonnie. We hope everyone will think to add to the new Schedules page... its easy, free, and fast. Who knows about music events? Sports? Plays? School outings? The more we use it, the better it is for everyone.
