I read about the citizens' concerns about the access to Doe Mountain project going through the Harbin Hills Subdivision.

For the love of God and all that is pure and holy!

Why would the entrance, or even one of the entrances, to that hellish project go through the entrance and street(s) of one of the nicest residential areas?

I don't have as nice a house in as great a location, but I am not jealous, and I really do feel for those people who are concerned about the noise, the pollution, the complete loss of privacy and way of life they have enjoyed until now.

It is very important for our loud, rowdy, outdoorsy local boys to have an outlet for their energy because they do not spend a lot of hours doing community service, church work, working toward a GED, a degree, or reading.

But MUST we sacrifice what is already good about our county because THEY need a place to be loud and make a lot of smoke?

They can put the entrance on my land...for a nice fee, or an exit for that matter. Just remember, it costs more to get out than to get in!:>)

I thought the recreation area on Doe Mountain was a good idea and would benefit the county but now I have serious doubts. Those seeking to make money off this project are willing to ruin nice residential areas for a dollar. The idea of allowing ATV’s, OHV’s on our roads is totally absurd.
I was always suspicious of how and why Potter bought the lot in the subdivision on Doe Mountain in Jan. 2011 while he was pushing the state to buy the mountain. I have heard so many different stories about how he learned it was for sale and why he bought it, I am even more suspicious. Since the road at the house the county bought on Harbin Hill Road connects to the lot Potter bought in I think I see the connection. When the word got out he owned the lot he decided it was best to donate the lot to the state. May not be illegal but smacks of “unethical”. Why didn’t the TBI look into this?

Look into what? The donation of land to the state?????

The only thing I can think of to be looked into is maybe for the IRS to see how big an income tax deduction he's taking, IF ANY.

If you do not understand the correlation of an elected official "pushing state to buy the mountain" when he owns land that could profit from sale then you are one dumb sucka. The TBI would be the state agency to investigate matters such as this. Think again.

They would not want your entrance on your land since your land does not join the Doe Mountain.

Oh why did they want to buy the mountain? The residents would have much preferred a timber co purchase it and clear cut it. No noise, no traffic and so pretty to look at.

I believe Agenda 21 is being implemented in Johnson County, Tennessee.

I am surprised at your questioning this. I thought this was how the world works. Okay, for example. A few years back Maymead Number One and Maymead Number Two (I may be confused about the numbers, but I am not referring to MBM) bought about 100 acres up in the Mink Hills area. Voila, magically, a bypass is funded by Nashville, AND the route chosen and the right-of-way allow access to the 100 acres to be developed. Take a look at the Laurelwood Acres sign on your left as you drive N.
It is a picture of how the world works.

Doesn't the elected official have to PROFIT from "pushing state to buy the mountain" before there is anything for the TBI to investigate?

How do you know where and what my land connects too? Actually, it does connect smack dab in the middle of the mountain and goes over the top to the 167 side.

Who owns the hunting cabins on the mountain?

I know because in Tennessee property ownership is public record and includes GIS mapping and you have been dumb enough to post your name, your wife’s name and excessively much other personal information on Topix. You are not a very bright boy. I may have missed the name of the dog in photo of your profile so you may as well post that too.

There is a more than a slight difference between a private individual or company and an elected official. Elected officials under law have ethical standards they must follow.
