Governor Coming to Town

Tennessee Governor Phil Bredesen will be in Cookeville next week for the investiture of Amy V. Hollars as the judge for Part 1 of the Circuit Court for the 13th Judicial District. Investiture is a fancy way of saying that it's a formal swearing-in ceremony, although Hollars has been on the job for several months. She was appointed by Bredesen to take over the job previously held by her father, John Turnbull, who retired this year. Hollars, a native of Livingston, will serve until the next election in 2010. The ceremony is planned for 1:30 pm on Wednesday, July 15, in the third floor courtroom of the Putnam County courthouse on the square in Cookeville. The 13th Judicial District encompasses Putnam, Overton, Clay, Pickett, Cumberland, White and DeKalb counties.
