I have gotten the camera around to Rockwood, Kingston, and Harriman, but I am still missing Oliver Springs.

I used to drive by the town on my way into Oak Ridge and admire the roof tops. The older buildings have a charm that we just can't match today.

One thing I noticed is that Oliver Springs has by far the best web site of the towns around here. First there's the banner picture of the windmills at Windrock and then there's the entire Municipal Code posted where everybody can read it.

Being open about your town's laws...What a concept!

From section 11-101 for instance, we learn that while the public drinking of beer and liquor is prohibited, wine is not mentioned whatsoever.

I hereby propose the Oliver Springs Wine Festival!

Lost Medicaid Funding

To date, the failure to expand Medicaid / TennCare has cost the State of Tennessee ? in lost federal funding.
