Fourteen Chattanooga area attorneys have applied to be Hamilton County clerk and master, the Chattanoogan reports. The deadline to file was Wednesday of this week. Lee Akers, who is retiring from the post, said the next step in the process would be delayed until after the Republican primary next week so that the new chancellor can have a say in the selection. Pam Fleenor and Joe Manuel are facing off to be chancellor Part 1. Jeff Atherton, who is unopposed to remain as chancellor Part 2, and retiring Chancellor Frank Brown also will take part in the selection process. Akers is set to retire on Sept. 8.
