County workers pay tribute to Summitt

County Law Director Joe Jarret sent me this picture (to the left, taken by E-Government Services Manager and kick ass photographer Jon Gustin).

He said the folks in the Deathstar "came out in force to show their support for our beloved coach, Pat Summitt."

In case you've been under a rock these past few days, the Hall of Fame Lady Vols coach said she has been diagnosed with early onset of dementia.

Today, people donned orange to show their support for her.

News Sentinel columnist Sam Venable recently wrote a nice piece about her and what she means to the community (and beyond). You can read it right smack here.

In the meantime, the folks who bring you Screams from the Porch (that's me) wish her the best.

I wish her the best as well.

But I also wonder how much this cost in lost labor. Bunch of government workers screwing around in their orange shirts.

Hope they took the pic after work (HA).

Nice of the freakin' law director to be apart of defrauding the taxpayers out of all those manhours. Isn't he trolling for votes?
