You say Deweese just wants to make more money, of course he does you idiot, thats what your suppose to do when you start a business. Truth is, most successful business owners like Weldon invest the money they make back into the business and its employees, instead of sticking it in their pockets like most of you think. There are no issues concerning Hansons, and if there was, why would people continue to build homes in the area. Property values in that area have gone up, so explain how that works. Also, I didn't know we had so many environmental experts in our small town, who would have thought. Now everyone is looking things up on the internet, do you know how much false information is on the internet. I salute Weldon for tryn to create jobs in our community, especially in these economically troubled times.
I find your comment about 'how much false information is on the internet' interesting. Considering that most of your quarry testimonies were using internet reports. Especially Ron Kirby. He stated he didn't comp anyone's property, had not personally looked at anyones property to get a value but gave his 'expert witness' report by using Google to search the internet. He used internet reports comparing us here in Simpson County to vineyards in California!! He was not an appraiser but told the board members that our property WOULD NOT depreciate in any way from the quarry. RON KIRBY ACTUALLY SAID.....IF ANYTHING OUR PROPERTY VALUES WOULD GO UP!!! Now that is ridiculous, but three people on this zoning board bought it. The friends of Deweese, of course.

No one has asked about the 2 proposed car lots on the agenda seeking permits last Tues night along with the quarry!!
One car lot, requesting a permit to sell 5-6 cars, was heard before the quarry. He was tabled for a month until he could show the plans and location for a second entrance. The other car lot was heard AFTER the quarry at 1:30am. Yes AM. He also was rejected and not granted a permit for some petty reason.

Now this board rejected 2 small car lots and then passed a large very controversial permit like this quarry. It was all pre-planned. A complete farce.
complete sham

Exactly. I was there. The whole thing was a joke. They went in there knowing how they would vote. 1 member admittedly couldn't hear a word and is 92 and the first to raise his hand, the other has done construction projects with Deweese and was the 2nd to raise his hand, the other would profit from using the lime because he's a farmer, so he was in his pocket. It was truly disgusting to watch. I'm grateful for the 2 that were against it. Maybe there are people out there that still listen to what the majority want. How can a petition with 531 names go unnoticed, especially when there are 300 people with signs saying "we don't want this". Total bull shit. But Deweee will have a few more hurdles to jump through with the state before he can proceed.

Hmmm you must have forgot.....we were promised there would be no noise. It was proven. If anyone is kept 'on the edge' by a 'boom'.....you'll be PROVEN a liar. Better be careful what you're hoping for.

There will be no "booms" from the dynamite. Didn't you hear Adjustments Board Chairman Dan Coates on Channel 13 say that blasting today wasn't like blasting from years ago. They now do blasting that doesn't vibrate the ground and it doesn't even make a noise. WOW! I didn't know we had such advancements now in blasting...so no boom. BOOM! BOOM! Who believes this crap? Nobody does except the "paid for" votes on the Planning Adjustment Board. Get real!

tim smith said at hearing they'd applied for a state mining permit. he also mentioned water and air permits. don't permits like these require some type of public hearing in addition to any local zoning board permits? we need to check this out.

Kentucky Law says there can be no quarrying within 300 feet of a park. His land that this will be a part of borders Drakes Creek. The other side of the creek is owned by the park. Why did no one bring that up? They didn't even have exact measurements of where the site would be or even have the results back from the core samples before they approved it. Tim Smith outright lied to the board when he said there were no sink holes on the property. What a joke. The whole place is eat up with them. He lied under oath repeateldy. It's a shame he had such a deaf, dumb, blind and eager audience of the 3 members that jumped to vote this through.

There are caves too on this property and they testified there were none.
Numerous witnesses spoke untruths. It will be interesting to see how the city handles this.

Concerning the car lot permits. One was tabled until next meeting because he did not have the proper information showing the property. The second car lot was passed.

If managed properly this could be a good thing, if not there could be major problems. Drive from Gallatin TN to Hendersonville TN you go right past a very large quarry. It has not harmed property values and it is very close to Old Hickory Lake.

What the real deal is, Nobody wants it in their backyard. To protect that from happening you can only do one thing, buy everything you can see from your front and back porch.
