We need a plan to better education around here. Forty percent of adults are functionally illiterate.

Yep, I agree. The number of ignorant inbred pillhead idiots is probably much higher for Greene County. Our public schools are failing miserably.

According to the OP we need to "chean" out the local dam and build a bigger jail in order to have a "plane" for the future. LOL

Why did we allow silt to fill in the lake above the damn they say its only 4 feet deep . Seems to me we owe it to ourselves to use the bounty of water flow from the river to make cheap power for the city and surrounding areas . Its there why not open up the intake and let the river clean itself out . Why not if the fish are blocked now what harm could it do ?

The TVA owns the dam, not Greeneville. If you do a little research you can find out about the various different options they have considered. For now, they have chosen the cheapest option...which is to do nothing.

BTW- The intakes were filled with concrete years ago...no way to open them.
You are right

The turbines that were new ones, just installed at the time were also filled with concrete as well! A guy wanted to lease it, TVA would not agree to that, but found it a better choice not only to close it, but make it inoperable?
