Your Stories: Earl Lloyd

A former professional basketball player resides in Cumberland County. Other than the fact that he is extremely tall, you would never know it. He's humble about his accomplishments and his accomplishments are pretty impressive.

Three names made basketball history in 1950. "Sweetwater" Clifton, Chuck Cooper and Earl Lloyd. The first three African American men in the NBA.

The first, though, to actually play in a game was Earl Lloyd who now lives just outside of Crossville.

Crossville farm gives the gift of green beans

Crossville farm gives the gift of green beans

Second Harvest Food Bank has assembled a team of volunteers to sort through 5,000 pounds of green beans.

The beans would have been thrown back in the field for fertilizer, but Hughes Farm in Crossville was able to donate them.

Second Harvest says it's the basics of food-banking.

"Our whole network was started to keep food out of the dumpster and out of the fields. And this is gleaning at its best. And then of course, it will go out to our 500 partners in our 18-county service area as soon as we get it sorted," said Elaine Streno.
