Former Roane resident Dr. Edward Lance sent this quote uttered by a Roane bus driver in 1975, upset with baseball team members leaving spilled spit cups on his bus:

"I'm goin ta tell the ones of ya that's left, if you all ever need haulin' again, I ain't a-goin-a do it, 'cause I ain't a-cleaning up spit after nobody, and I mean noooobody!"
