The Maryville Daily Times interviewed eight women who they consider "community leaders" about their outlook for 2009.

Wendy Pitts Reeves is curiously absent. So are Monika Murrell and Tonya Burhchfield.

UPDATE: Wendy Pitts Reeves responds:

"Linda Albert did, actually, ask me to submit something for that article. However, I had a house full of company for two weeks and just never got around to submitting my two-cents worth. I was honored to be asked, though, as it was an impressive panel of writers. Wouldn't you like to see some of those women serving roles in our county government? They would add so much!"

No question

None of the 430 or so attending the Blount County Inaugural Gala at the Hilton and hearing Mrs. Reeves introduce the keynote speaker, Rev. Dr. Harold Middlebrook, could ever believe she wasn't a community leader. Her speech was electrifying, stunning, and a perfect segue to Dr. Middlebrook's address. Together, they brought the house down!
