PIKEVILLE, TN (Times Free Press) -
The effort to build a permanent farmers market and community kitchen in Pikeville, Tenn., got high marks last week from a leading official with the Appalachian Regional Commission.
ARC federal co-Chairman Earl F. Gohl said teamwork, energy and vision are the most promising elements going behind plans in the Bledsoe County seat.
Gohl visited Pikeville last Monday to see how the two-pronged project he called "impressive" is progressing.
"These are great ideas," Gohl said of plans funded in 2013 through the Appalachian Livable Communities program, administered by the ARC, U.S. Environmental Protection Agency and the U.S. Department of Agriculture.
