Annexation case bares the financial prospects of Town of Big Stone Gap

The Coalfield Progress has reports here and here, and the Kingsport paper (registration required) has an article here, and the Bristol paper has articles here, here, and here on the trial of the Big Stone Gap annexation case.

The hearing got started late on Monday because two members of the three judge panel got lost on the way to the courthouse. As the Bristol paper explained: "What could be a three-day trial got off to a late start Monday morning when [Judges] Horne and Alexander got lost. The judges arrived two hours late and got some good-natured ribbing from [Judge] Roush before boarding a bus to tour the annexation area."
