1) Monday you'll have a chance to give a little change to make a big difference in a senior's life. The Mobile Meals Monday Telethon kicked off in the morning.

Mobile meals serves people ages 60 and up who cannot cool for themselves and do not have anyone to help them. The number to call is 865-690-3500.

2) The attorney of Campbell County teen who once pleaded guilty to killing an assistant principal is set to appear in court to ask for a change of venue for a new trial. According to Kenneth Bartley's attorney, Greg Isaacs, the hearing will be at 9:30 a.m. in Campbell County. Bartley was 14 years old when he brought a loaded gun to Campbell County High School. Assistant Principal Ken Bruce was shot and killed in the school office. Bartley's guilty plea was thrown out on the argument that he had been pressured into the plea before he discussed it with his parents.
