Though I have much respect for Dr. Guider, issues of air quality have been an issue in Loudon County for many years, starting with Viskase and A E Staley (Tate & Lyle). Really it's quite simple. Loudon County was a poor county with no jobs, so commissioners said..sure we want you to locate here, we'll give you free taxes, and so what if you pollute the county. We'll get our kick-backs, and life will go on. As other industries chose to locate to Lo.Co., some of those same offers were on the table. Now, here's where we are. Alot of people have been provided with much needed jobs, some industries such as KC have went way beyond their requirements to run a safe opperation, and contribute many resources to the county, and still jerks like Mr. Ludwig will NEVER be satisfied. I guess Mr. Ludwig, Dr. Guider, and others were ok with the group of volunteers and state and county workers sand blasting paint off the Loudon bridge straight into the river, all in the namesake of "honor"....please! What about the sewage from Loudon water works going into the river, again..OK? Tate & Lyle emmissions??? Progress is here, and sometimes we have to take the good with the bad, or so thought the commissioners many years ago. You know, there are other places to live in TN. and for that matter any where in the world. But, there is no where perfect. I just get the feeling the squeeky wheel smells $$$$$$$$$$ If I'm correct, Mr. Ludwig isn't even a property owner of the alleged emmissions in question. Become a property owner/tax-payer, and your complaints might carry more weight. Food for thought!
