Longtime Ragland resident Anthony Soles has experience in the food industry he has accumulated over many years. He once worked at the Holiday Inn in Oxford and then ran TCT Ice Cream parlor in Ragland. His best customers were the 200 or so employees at Ragland Clay Products. He also fed them from a red food truck. Then, in 2008, the country’s recession eliminated much of the company’s workforce, which brought Chef T’s business to a stop.

As a mother and wife, Jessica Cobb said her family is her first priority.

“We still sit at the table for dinner,” she said. “Derek and I try to fit in date nights every now and then. We really enjoy concerts.”

The former Debra Harris has worked 25 years outside her home as a bookkeeper during her almost 45 year marriage to Sam Prichard.  She considers her current job, keeping her grandchildren, as the best yet.
