Park has roots here. But she moved away. And when she moved away she learned that there were different ways--maybe better ways--to live. She is in the unenviable position of trying to marry the life she had before she moved out West to the life that she has since she's moved back here.
Moving away gives you a perspective--a different perspective. It changes you. You grow emotionally and spiritually.
People who have lived here their whole lives don't have that perspective. That's not a bad thing necessarily. But you just don't grow a different perspective.
When you come back to Greeneville after having lived in a different place, people look at you differently--treat you differently. To them you're never the same.
Park's ideas about pacifism, liberalism, animal rights--they're just as valid as other's ideas about making war, conservatism, and hunting.
Her ideas seem to be more in keeping with my own.
Nevertheless, it's no reason to attack the woman. Her heart is in the right place. She feels passionately about things and wants the best for people and animals. How can that be seen as a character flaw?
Maybe too many of you are threatened by her values. You recognize that they are different and it threatens your sense of stability--your sense of self.
This is a very insular part of the world. If your views stray too far from the "norm" then you're treated like a foreign invader.
People don't seem to embrace change or growth. Again, that's not a bad thing--it just "is what it is". People like things to stay the same. They see value in that.
But there's a very thin line between predictable and boring. Just as there is a very thin line between edgy and terrifying.
I feel like Park wandered into Topix and didn't realize that she would be attacked. I'm sure it's not the first time in her life that she's been ambushed. But still, her heart is in the right place. It's embarrassing that someone started this thread.

Ask Park the reason they opened a hunt on the Sandhill Crane. SHE DON'T KNOW........ She blabs on about oh the hunters killing this and that yet she has no clue what over populated animals can do to the the food chain. She went out there to that there California and forgot where she came from. People get all excited about people hunting for their food. If people worried more about saving lives and babies from abortion than they do letting the wildlife resource agency do what they are trained and went to school to do. Or hey what about the homeless people sleeping on the bench at the old theater? HUH? Here is a good one. Deer meat is healthier than a cow or chicken. Deers aren't growth hormones that can cause CANCER... NOW that's where she could put some real research. Oh yeah she don't research. It's hilarious to watch and read what people write on her facebook. Park says go jump of the bridge.. followers say ok which bridge.Someone says why she says IDK.. Ok park I will

I am very surprised at some of these comments, I suppose those who have nothing useful to say just spew crap and garbage. I met Ms. Overall at a meeting last night and found her to be a refreshing breath of fresh air. I was stunned by the extreme negativity in some the posts here, I think that is a polite way to say bigotry. I especially related to to comments about her leaving the kind and gentle environs of east TN, since I also left Knoxville the day after I turned 17 to serve my country. I served for 26 year as a pilot in the USAF and I saw most of the world and returned to MY home in east TN just as Park has done. I have not heard any of this kind of filth directed toward Me, not sure if that is due to military backgound, of the fact that I am a male of the species. I liked Ms Overland enough to offer to help her campaign in way I can. Ms. Overland, that offer still stands.

It's ok, her drug abuse shadowed past and the extreme thoughts and actions she "champions" are enough to get her booted away. If you people who support her really knew what she thinks and says about you when you aren't kissing her a$$. Well a person with common sense would find a new hero.

Sadly, we are talking about the most extreme (Obama will pay my bills) Liberal here. You must really sit back and watch these people. They all act as a single simple mind. None of their arguments make any sense.

For instance. They actually think that an increase in Carbon Dioxide will "kill" the earth. Sadly, they forget that plants MUST have Carbon Dioxide to live. What happens when they live? Thy produce OXYGEN. which allows animal life to live of course. Yea, people with common sense really don't want carbon to be limited.

As far as hunting. Simply take the time to research exactly what will happen if seasoned animals over-populate an area. Then come back and we will talk

So, if you are a Liberal? We really don't need your services here anymore. Chicago is a nice safe place for you to go to. It's full of Liberals who have made it a nice, safe, wonderland of liberal LOVE and decency . Go check it out.

Park is a good comedic actress. Good writers and directors are a must for most thespians to look good at make believe. As conservatives go, Bob Corker is too far left to be considered truly conservative. I think, Abraham Lincoln said something about fooling some of the people all of the time. Ms. Overall received 15 percent of the vote when she ran for the U.S. senate. I'd say that about covers it, population wise.

And you so well represent the intelligence level of Greene Vointy since these two honorable people left, did something with their lives, and then returned. You, however remained here, stagnant, stupid and bitter.

Your state rep beat his wife up while drinking on a Sunday morning while the likes of you and your trailer family were on their way down to the churchiity church hate group. Not only did you toothless wonders not prosecute the rep,.? You re-elected him... Greeneville Is Chicago but Chicago offers some culture.

Now crawl off and die somewhere and remember, stupid is terminal.

You stupid mofos, do not know your ass from a hole in the ground, you continually prove it! Park Overall has done everything to help this community, your ground water is contaminated, the air is filled with toxins, and what do your idiots do. criticize her. Why she does it, I will never understand. I wouldn't give you douches a pot to piss in. This is her Greenville, just as much as it is yours, if not more. Her father was a lawyer and they did make contributions to the community, and I think her mother was a teacher, so they made huge contributions to your city/county. You bunch of ingrates, if you don't like her, keep your fucking asses off her FB page. One can tell a lot from your speech pattern, I've trained to do just that, I will be back, cowards!

I'm not reading this post correctly am I? Do any of you people have any idea of the good Park has done for your county. I happen to know for a fact a few of the things she has done for Greeneville and Greene County. Sure she left and did well...now she's back home. I'm proud of her.
