  1. As Joe Burrow Spoke of Hunger, His Hometown Felt the Lift
    THE PLAINS, Ohio — Athens

    For the Greater Good: Norris Dam at 80 the beginning of TVA
    I live about 25 or 30 mile from Norris Dam
    They were dirt poor The poor didn’t get power until late 40’s and 50’s
    Norris changed the landscape of what was primarily rural farmland in Anderson, Union, Campbell, Grainger and Claiborne counties. The federal government bought 152,800 acres in those counties, relocating 2,899 families and moving more than 5,000 graves.

    How did TVA got started in TN and what was Henry Ford up to at Muscle Shoals along the TN river

  2. Decades-old Apalachicola Basin water dispute between Georgia and Florida heads to Supreme Court

    Well they reroute the Tennessee river into Georgia this would allow the oyster in Apalachicola Bay to grow again
    No more red tide

    The Tennessee river does not go into Georgia

    But right now that Apalachicola Basin water goes through Atlanta and other cities all the way down to Florida it is so filthy I wouldn’t put my toe in it.

    Apalachicola Basin.
    For 30 years, Georgia and Florida have been fighting over water

  3. A False Earthquake
    USGS: 2.5-magnitude earthquake reported in Middle Tennessee was ‘false reading’ at 10:45 a.m. Monday Jan 20, 2020

    M 3.8 – 4km ENE of Fincastle, Tennessee
    2020-01-20 19:12:11 (UTC) 34.8 km depth about 22. miles deep

    So i guest that Magnitude 2.8 earthquake in East Tennessee was false reading on Sunday 19, 2020
    M 2.8 – 1km WSW of Fincastle, Tennessee
    2020-01-19 10:19:24 (UTC) 33.9 km depth
