Dozens of Jefferson County students kicked off a week about learning about drug awareness on Friday. It's Red Ribbon Week at Rush Strong School.

Mother, daughter team up to bring the holiday spirit back to Newport

Take one glance around Newport, and one thing is clear -- the residents love their holidays.

Pumpkins, mums and corn stalks adorn poles, steps and sidewalks across the city.

"It's a community which, you know everybody here, and you have the familiar faces," said Kellye Stokely, a lifelong resident. "It is a friendly town."

But, last year, the holiday spirit was sucked right out of the town when the city's utility poles, usually adorned with holiday lights, were bare.

Newport paints the town pink to support breast cancer awareness

When it comes to painting the town, Newport chose pink instead of red on Wednesday. It's their special way of showing support for those diagnosed with breast cancer.

Dozens of people turned out in front of the Cocke County Courthouse wearing their pink proudly.

Tennova Healthcare teamed up with the city and county and local businesses in an effort to raise awareness of the disease. A balloon release and the turnout was more than enough to life the spirit of survivors.
