On August 6th, 1975, around 10:15 P.M., 17-year-old Laurel Jean Mitchell left her job at the Cokesbury Inn, a small restaurant in Epworth Forest, located on the shores of Webster Lake, and headed to Adventureland, a once-popular amusement park just down the road.
Laurel, a high school senior, passed by a classmate who waved to her as she walked by the entrance to the Epworth Forest. This would be the last time Laurel would be seen alive.
No one knew Laurel was missing or in any danger. Her parents believed she was with her friends at Adventureland, when in reality her friends decided to go to the county fair that evening, suspecting Laurel had just gone home after work.
The following morning, 15 miles away, a man and his son who were fishing in the Elkhart River in Noble County, discovered the body of a young woman in the water. The body was quickly identified as Laurel.
An autopsy revealed that Laurel’s cause of death had been drowning. She showed no obvious signs of trauma aside from several bruises on her hands and shoulder. Laurel was fully clothed, however it was determined that she had been sexually assaulted.
Laurel was described as boisterous and motherly, often doting on the neighborhood children. She was said to be kind and smart, and due to her involvement in the local church choir group, dance classes, and other community events, she was a well known face in the small town of North Webster.
Despite the case seemingly to grow colder by the day, Laurel’s sister, Sarah, never gave up hope of finding answers. Every year she would appeal to the media to once again cover her sisters story, and always maintained contact with the detective assigned to Laurel’s case.
During one of her chats with the detective, Sarah mentioned that a family friend had told her a small band from Delphi, Indiana, called “Celebrate the Son,” consisting of several boys and girls around the ages of 16-20, had played a show that evening at the Cokesbury Inn, and had left around the same time Laurel was last seen alive.
The family friend also mentioned seeing the same group at the fire station later that evening. He described seeing a woman “having a panic attack and hyperventilating” outside of a fire station. He said the woman, who was highly distraught, was accompanied by a group of guys, all around the ages of 16-20, who were trying to calm her down.
The detective told Sarah that this tip had never made into any past reports and felt it worth investigating... keep reading on reddit ➡

The traits of the One and those of a Nine-wing tend to reinforce each other. Both component types tend to be removed from the environment: the One because it relates to ideals, and the Nine because it relates to idealizations of people rather than to people themselves. The result is that Ones with a Nine-wing are somewhat disconnected from others, impersonal, and emotionally cooler than Ones with a Two-wing. Noteworthy examples of this subtype include Margaret Thatcher, Ralph Nader, Sandra Day O'Connor, Katharine Hepburn, William F. Buckley, Peter Jennings, Jeane J. Kirkpatrick, Diane Feinstein, Joyce Brothers, David Stockman, Walter Lippmann, Eric Sevareid, C.S.

I have recently been searching for a more progressive/liberal-leaning Christian church in the West Knoxville area and have found some that were exactly what I was looking for in that respect. But all of these churches had very traditional, liturgical, formal services. I would love to find a place that was more contemporary- which usually means more a more relaxed environment, attire is more relaxed, more contemporary music... with a more progressive theology behind it. Any ideas?
Sorry about the earlier formatting, this was more complicated that I expected.

All I can think of is Rothchilds and Cokesbury. What other locations might this non-profit hope to try to make arrangements?
I'm creating this thread to replace this one about the storm (as opposed to a single comment chain in the other thread).
This thread is for people who are offering/need assistance , have information on how to help, or updated news regarding the storm that went through on Feb 23rd.
It's important for me to note that I have just as much information as you, and I'm not personally involved in any organization that may partake in relief efforts. I'm just helping compile information. All the information provided in this thread is provided by other users, so if something seems wrong, politely say so and correct if you have updated information.
/u/adazzle : There's a shelter now established at cokesbury united methodist church on summit Blvd. They're bussing people there from the affected areas.
Note: /u/astrokey pointed out they are Red Cross and do not allow pets.
According to The Pulse's video of our dear governor (video located here), they are not letting volunteers in yet to help...however they mentioned you can contact the Red Cross and see what they'll let you work on.
(thanks /u/drewbuchanan )
Thanks /u/beer-N-crumpets for this link
/u/gloomyghoul posted this link right here which has video footage.
