Sandra ClarkBiz Notes

  • UT has fired Knoxville campus Chancellor Beverly Davenport effective July 1 and put her on administrative leave with pay effective immediately. UT President Joe DiPietro said Davenport will join the faculty in the College of Communication and Information.

  • Oddly (or not so oddly), this story was scooped by a sports guy, Jimmy Hyams.

  • Someone on Facebook wondered why the good ol’ boys couldn’t take off a day to celebrate buying the South Knox school board seat.

  • Leading the ticket: As predicted here yesterday, Tom Spangler led the Republican Primary ticket for contested races with 26,241 votes in unofficial returns. Sherry Witt seems to be second, with 23,168.
