I heard Houchens/Scotty's got that bid because Deweese overbid the job by SEVERAL million $. I heard losing made Tim Smith so mad he tried to insult and start a fight with Scotty's main man in a very public place. Deweese planned to put that kind of profit in his pocket and pay a new employee $15 an hour? Really? And try to convince this county to feel sorry for him? Deweese and Co are overbearing, arrogant and vindictive. They cant stand not getting their way and care nothing about this community, only themselves. They might have gotten that job if they werent so greedy.

Bottom line, this quarry should never have been planned in a location so close to our park, city and water supply.
Deweese needs to admit it was a mistake and move on. It's time to grow up and stop acting childish.

Mr DeWeese is trying to help the community of Simpson county by putting large construction jobs and workers here at home outside people are currently getting those jobs and all those wages are being spent in Bowling Green the us31 corridor will go to an outside contractor and of course any other,the only winner is the Houchens group who owns construction co and controls the rock quarry the 31 mine cannot supply enough rock for whats needed The Carvers reason for doing this is purely greed the city of Franklin has made them millionares while they have people working like slaves for minimum wage in deplorable conditions Chas deweese construction starts employees at 15 hr and gives health ins.Point being working for Mr.DeWeese is a Quality job and we all should try a little to keep better jobs in our own community we would all prosper

This quarry would not hire more than a handful of new employees at best. It was stated publicly, Deweese needs this quarry for his own existing people. To supply product for his own needs. This city is expected to place its citizens and children in danger for a handful of people? Wrong. Deweese is only thinking of his selfish needs instead of whats best for ALL the citizens in this county. No one wants to see Deweese in financial difficulty but I also dont want to see one man prosper at the expense of an entire community. No one stands to gain from a quarry at this location except Deweese.
Local jobs?? Wrong again. Many Deweese employees don't even live in Simpson Co. Their high dollar man, Smith, lives in BG. So your theory of keeping it local doesn't even begin to make sense. Talk. That's all it is. Talk. The people in this county is too smart to believe lies.
