Guy Collins, the longest-serving member of the Hamblen County Commission, was rushed to the hospital just before the regularly scheduled meeting of the Commission yesterday.
I arrived at the Courthouse at about 4:55 PM yesterday and saw an ambulance and other emergency vehicles right in front of the Courthouse doors on Second North.
When I started toward the doors, a gentleman told me that Guy Collins had been rushed out.
County Mayor David Purkey came in shortly after the 5:00 PM meeting started and reported to all that Guy had apparently had a heart attack and had been taken to the hospital.
Our prayers are with Guy and his family.
