' In an election once threatened by a ' lawsuit seeking to revoke the city's J charter, Robert Carter, 43, was elected mayor Thursday by a 33-32 margin over Timothy Malone. Carter ran on a promise to retain the charter and the town's name, claiming the sleepy community adjacent to South Pittsburg has the potential for attracting business and industry and advocating a municipal tax to pay for necessary services. "We'll have our own city marshal," said Carter before the results were in. "That's all we'll need because everybody's got their own gun. They can take care of themselves. Besides, we've got zero crime rate here." Malone had argued that Richard City should surrender its charter because it does not have enough sources , of tax revenue to run a city. Earlier this year, Viola Johnson, the town recorder, said Richard City had $42.79 in its checking account and $120 in its federal revenue-sharing fund. Richard City was established as a company town in 1907 when Dixie Portland Cement opened a plant outside South Pittsburg, but the plant closed three years ago after workers formed a unioa The 1980 census reported 87 residents. The last elected officials were voted into office in 1978 and their terms expired in 1980. Although Malone lost two people in favor of revoking the charter, James E Chance, 48, and Lydia E Cordell, 49, won election to the council. Chance defeated Paul Rutledge 43-22 and Ms. Cordell was a 35-31 winner .over Ernest Ray Blevins. Sixty-seven people voted in the election, compared to just 16 in the 1978 election, according to election officials. Incest Figure Probed For Parole Violations CHARLOTTE Term. Danny Bass, convicted last year of incest charges involving his 1978 marriage to his mother, could serve a five-year prison term if his reported parole violations are verified, officials said. "It has been reported to our office by a concerned individual that he Bass has bought or has bought an interest in, or is managing or working at an establishment that exists for the , sole purpose of selling alcoholic 1; beverages,'?' Assistant District "Attorney General Dan Cook said here yesterday. "That would be a violation of the terms and conditions of his sentence." Bass, 27, of Dickson, pleaded no contest Dec 13 to a felony incest charges and guilty to one count of per jury, involving his statement to grand , jurors here that he did not know Mary Ann Carton Bass was his mother when they married.

Christiana Blaze Believed Arson MURFREESBORO A fire that gutted the home of Billy Hinton Jr. on US. 231 near Midland Road in Christiana yesterday was probably due to arson, fire officials here said. "There was a window broken and some guns were missing," said John D.Wiseman of the Rutherford County Fire Department. "So we are fairly sure it was arson." Two other homes were destroyed by fires in Rutherford County yesterday. One, the residence of EE West on Highway 96 West, was apparently caused by a loose fitting on a butane heater, officials said. According to Tommy Sanf ord of the Franklin Road Fire Department, the house was a total loss. Sanf ord added that the house was destroyed before his department was even notified of the fire. The other house fire occured at the home of A. J. Wade on Weakley Lane outside of Smyrna Officials are not sure of the cause of the blaze. No one was injured in any of the three house fires, officials said., Coach Sentenced On Sex Charges TAZEWELL, Term. (AP) A coach at Claiborne County High School has been sentenced to 10 years in prison after pleading guilty to rape and sexual battery charges involving four male students. Charles R. Hopson, 32, of Tazewell, entered the guilty pleas and was sentenced on Thursday. He was a physical education instructor and assistant baseball and basketball coach at the high school. Assistant District Attorney Jeff Blevins said some of the incidents occurred at Soldiers Memorial Junior High School where Hopson previously taught The children involved were aged 13-18. District Attorney Paul Phillips said Hopson faced a possible 20-year sentence but the lighter term was recommended because the defendant pleaded guilty and avoided a trial. "Our primary interest at the beginning of this case is what the children would have to go through," Blevins said. "This protected the children from disclosure."
