From sunny day scenes to championship teams, looking back at the year 2013, many good photos were produced through the lenses of Times-News photographers David Grace and Ned Jilton II.
Weather was in the headlines in 2013 when record rains caused heavy flooding in downtown Kingsport and damaged houses in the Bloomingdale area.
In sports, several area teams made runs at state championships, with Sullivan South’s volleyball team, Gate City’s volleyball team and Sullivan South’s girls golf team winning state titles.
Local history and heritage were highlighted with photo packages of the 150th anniversary of the Battle of Blountville, traditional shape-note singing and a remembrance of the Battle of Kingsport.
