Inmates clean up Cumberland River

Just in time for summer months, Knox County Detention Center inmates cleaned up the Cumberland River along Thompson Park this past Thursday.

“They retrieved over 50 tires in various sizes,” said Mayor David Thompson. “They got everything visible from the side of the river and just made it look nice.”

In comparison to past events, the inmates have retrieved as many as 153 tires from the river.
