In Clinton, Tennessee, on a early Sunday morning, Clinton High School was almost leveled due to a bombing. There was estimated 75-100 sticks of dynamite that had been placed in 3 locations in the building. 

There were no injuries, but school officials estimated damages at $300,000. 

Clinton had once again become the focus of attention over a crime that was related to the school’s desegregation policy. 

While the school was rebuilt, Clinton High School students were bussed to Oak Ridge where the school operated in the recently vacated building that had housed Linden Elementary School.

    I don’t know whether it’s just me or if perhaps everyone else encountering issues
    with your site. It looks like some of the text within your posts are running off the
    screen. Can somebody else please provide feedback and let me know if this is happening to them as well?

    This may be a problem with my browser because I’ve had this happen previously.
    Thanks
