Mica Stewart/OCN staff

Four persons were transported to Livingston Regional Hospital following a head-on collision on Highway 52 near the Fentress County line around 1 p.m. Saturday, Sept. 6. According to reports, a silver 1996 Jeep Grand Cherokee, driven by Harmie Thompson, 57, was attempting to turn into a driveway from the eastbound lane and crossed into the path of a red 1992 Toyota pickup driven westward by Jesse Howard, 23. When the pickup topped a nearby blind hill, it collided head-on with the Jeep. The Jeep's driver was apparently uninjured, but two passengers, Anna Thompson, 53, and Makali Thompson, 8, were transported by Overton CountyAmbulance Service to LRH. The truck's driver and a passenger, Margie Howard, 41, were also injured, and were transported by ambulance to LRH. Trooper Marty Philpot of Tennessee Highway Patrol investigated the incident.

The workshop will be held from Tuesday, Sept. 23 through Thursday, Sept. 25, from 8:30 a.m. until 3:30 p.m. each day, at the Livingston-Overton County Chamber of Commerce building in Livingston.

The computer software used to teach the workshop will be QuickBooks Pro 2003.
