NEWPORT-Six members of the Cocke County CLB General Committee, meeting Monday afternoon in the Chancery Courtroom, found themselves deadlocked in a tie after attempting to select three people to recommend to the full CLB as candidates for a vacant post in the Fifth District.

After unanimously electing Norman Smith chairman and Calvin Ball vice-chairman, the committee asked the five men and two women who had submitted resumes for the vacancy to introduce themselves and then allotted each five minutes to address the audience.

Upon a recommendation by Cocke County Attorney Carter Moore, the candidates' names were drawn at random to determine the order in which they spoke.

The seven candidates are Terry Brockwell, B. Claire Crouch, Linda D. Elkins, Robert Lee Green, Ben Hicks, Darrell Ledford, and Martin D. 'Coby' McGaha.
