NEWPORT-A Cocke County newspaper carrier voiced concerns over the condition of Rocky Top Road to members of the Cocke County Highway Commission on Tuesday.

Michael Zagaeski said the Rocky Top Road, from Log Church Road to the U.S. Forest Service gate, is so rough it's making it hard for him to make deliveries.

"They dumped piles of gravel up there about a month ago but it was never graded out," said Zagaeski. "Also, someone is making speed bumps in the road and putting their leaves and sticks out into the road."

Road Superintendent Kenneth Ford said he would look at the situation and try to get it resolved.
