PUBLIC HEARING - KINGSTON CITY COUNCIL
JUNE 30, 2009 – 6:00 P.M.
KINGSTON COMMUNITY CENTER – COUNCIL ROOM
I figure about half (maybe more) of the community here at RoaneViews leans Republican. While completely misguided in their ideology (joke, I swear) they do seem to be mostly rational and caring people with an eye to the fact that we have to work together if there is going to be a future in the future. Not so the ones that get elected to national office. A case in point...Continued...
The show is tonight folks and there will be plenty of tickets available at the door!
Come see Brooks, Muse Watson, and me! I might even take your photo!
ROANE STATE THEATER AT 7 PM!
"TVA deeply regrets the spill of coal ash from our Kingston plant and is fully committed to restoring the community near the site and to seeing to the needs of our Roane County neighbors."
Other factors included the looseness of the ash, the steepness of the retaining walls and the pressure exerted by the stacked ash
And the Layer of Slimes
I remember when...
The whole failure document:
But here's the bottom line: It wasn't rain. It wasn't earthquake. It was simply that this type of storage was a bad idea in the first place. TVA made bad decisions all along the way. As the ash was piled higher and the lower levels became saturated with water, a point was reached where it all just gave way. A few small internal failures started the whole thing and then all hell broke loose...Literally!Continued...
Actually, I think an honest reading of the Constitution already does that but we just can't find enough honest readers. At any rate, Congressman Cooper supports this as well.
The USA men's Football team (soccer, to you American handball fans) beat the number one team in the world, Spain, 2-0 to advance to the finals of the Confederation cup in South Africa.

Thanks to Randy Ellis for the Heads up!
With a pearl amongst swine... (link...)
West Roane County Volunteer Fire Department (WRCVFD) urgently needs your help, now through July 5.Continued...
My suggestion is for EPA folks to stay off the stage with TVA. From what I can observe the EPA folks are working their tails off and following the laws and regulations (they can responsibly do nothing else), while TVA sends out flacks to spout insensible drivel that serves no one well.
Score a big one for Cumberland County, Roane State, and Lincoln Davis.
Is anybody driving the train for Roane County on things like this? A business incubator wold be a wonderful thing for us right now.
The family of Dr. Charles Grandison "Charlie" Mead will be receiving friends at the West Roane VFD Station No. 1 at 1303 Pumphouse Road in Rockwood, Tennessee, on Monday, June 29, 2009, from 5:30 to 7:30 PM, followed by a memorial service at 7:30 PM, also at Station No. 1.
The family has requested that in lieu of flowers, donations may be made in Charlie's memory to the WRCVFD at PO Box 417, Rockwood, TN 38754 or online at WestRoane.com.
...by planting an organic garden, Michelle Obama acted like Toto, pulling back the curtain to reveal the little man pretending to be the almighty wizard. That man - or men - behind the curtain are the biotech, pesticide, and fertilizer industries, who desperately want the American people to believe that they are absolutely necessary to prevent our starvation.
What a great experience for Christina Neal who was the leading goal scorer on the Roane County High School team.
The Long Term Recovery Committee will NOT meet this Wednesday, June 24th. The next meeting will be Wednesday, July 1st at 4:30.
My dear friend and colleague Charlie Mead passed away this morning. Even though I knew it was coming, I am still stunned.
What can I say about Charlie? He deserves poems and statues.Continued...
The wise and wonderful Charlie Mead is with us no more. Charlie passed quietly at 3 a.m. last night.
(Charlie posted and shared his photos as Corvus. The username will remain his. To know his wit, check out his title for this photo.)
This makes me feel really good about more nukes...

Whew, it is really hot isn't it..I don't know how we used to stand this heat years ago, maybe it was because we were younger. I got a lot of response from last weeks story about the contraption my father-in-law made and scared half of the Grandview community out of their wits.
Let me tell you about a terrible sound I heard once while living in the Clymersville area.
As they propose to build more nuclear plants, TVA shows up on another bad boy list.
