My favorite local columnist is not featured in a mainstream paper, but instead his articles appear in the MetroPulse
, an alternative paper which has just been purchased by E.W. Scripps
. The columnist is Jack Neely. He writes articles on interesting things from Knoxville's history. This week's column on Electro-Turkish Baths
is no exception to his interesting topics. There is also mention of an early vegetarian restaurant which fared better than its contemporary counterparts in the city.
