Yager has introduced a horror of a bill that will seriously threaten clean water in Roane County and a of Tennessee. This will be a good chance to see who Kent Calfee serves as well, if he supports or opposes the bill.
Senator Yager has previously been tone deaf to everything except what coal lobbyists tell him. You would think that, living as he does across the river from the largest coal disaster in US history, he might realize that there are more Tennessee jobs in the solar industry than coal and that solar is growing and coal is dying. This is a good thing. Will someone please let Ken and Kent know? I realize Yager gets a tonb of money from coal lobbyist Chuck Laine, but isn't he supposed to represent his constituents and not the industry that destroyed Roane County's economy?

His songs have been covered by a ton of folks, including John Mayall and Delbert McClinton.
Johnny was the other keyboard on the Allman Brothers "Seven Turns" album and wrote "Maydell", one of the stronger tracks. He was a member of Blue Floyd.
He will be at Market Street this Thursday night. $15 a person $25 couple. BYOB
I still can't believe we are going to have Johnny Neel at Market Street this THURSDAY!
...in 1984 Johnny relocated to Nashville, TN., where he made his mark as one of the most desired and most recognized session “A” studio players. His songwriting talents were in great demand and recording artists were in line to have his songs on their albums. His songs have been recorded by some of the industries most popular artists such as Montgomery Gentry, John Mayall, and Delbert McClinton, along with Travis Tritt, Keith Whitley, Restless Heart, and the Oak Ridge Boys.
After moving to Nashville Johnny met up with another legend in the industry, Dickie Betts, one of the founding members of the Allman Brothers Band. After his huge success with Dickie Betts and the album “Pattern Disruptive” his talents were then greatly desired by none other than Gregg Allman who asked Johnny to join his road band. Johnny decided to join the reunited Allman Brothers Band and together with Gregg Allman and Dickie Betts they co-wrote “Good Clean Fun” which topped the charts and gave the band their highest rated single since “Ramblin' Man.” Johnny also co-wrote “Read Me My Rights” with Delbert McClinton.
...Johnny also provided vocals on several songs that were included in four Walt Disney Records CD's such as “Saturday Night Fish Fry” for the Finding Nemo: Ocean Favorites in 2003 and “My Old Car” from Lightning McQueen's Fast Tracks in 2006. He also sang on the 2007 Ratatouille What's Cooking? Album where his voice will forever be associated with “One Meat Ball” and “Banana Split for My Baby.” He said it was so much fun to sing these songs with a full orchestra and he was proud to be part of it.
With such a full career of sharing his amazing natural born talent he received the “Life Time Achievement Award” for his work with the Allman Brothers at the 2012 Grammy Awards.

Please quit harassing me about the unpaid tank rental bills for 2013 and 2014. If you would take a moment and check your records you might notice that I terminated all of my Amerigas accounts in 2012. Your people picked up one of the tanks you keep billing me for in 2012 and the other one was supposed to be picked up two Januaries back. You must have forgotten about it even though I called you several times to come get it and you said you would. Your company is stunningly incompetent.

Want to know how long it has been since Tennessee was mentioned on the Daily Show? Here you go.
If you want to see us mentioned just last night here you go again. You really should see this.
Beyond the frivolity is the discussion of how rural areas empower the conservative movement that is keeping them impoverished, while liberals tend to move to cities and create jobs. It's a good argument that you should read.
Bottom line, if you want to create jobs make sure your state is not mentioned on the Daily Show. With our legislators that is going to be tough...really tough!

So you represent a group that opposes guns being carried into your parks and you are making your case to TN Rep. Rick Womick and in the middle of it he pulls out a gun and he plops a gun on his desk in the middle of their conversation. Is that a threat?

The Rough and Tumble are secretly known as Mallory Graham & Scott Tyler. Who, in their alter egos, fight for truth, justice, and little known and almost forgotten but almost important holidays, using their super powers of emotive harmonies, clever lyrics, large brown eyes, a beard, and various found objects.
