some thing ever goes wrong at watts bar,old washington is way to close..no i am looking for several acres..if i sell out and relocate it will not be in tn..there are several states i would rather live in..in tn if you own less than 35 acres you are taxed out the ass,to make up for the ones over 35 acres. [ green belt ],time you pay all the hidden taxs such as car tags for example, no home stead exempting on your house ,,etc..you are over taxed..several tax groups have ranked tn near the top of the states in taxing people who make below 250 thousand per year..while people above 250 thousand pay little in taxs..and now days tax rates are really some thing to take serious..

The CBS article fails to state the severity of the findings, which could paint a faulty picture of the conditions. Evidently the reporters were not experienced enough or knowledgeable in commercial nuclear power matters to discuss each finding.

Take responder training: could be one person out of 1,000 did not get update training as required.

Faulty gauge: How many gauges are there in a nuclear power plant, and how many are critical to safety, and just how critical to the plant's safety was the gauge in question? Even if Watts Bar were to have a problem and say kill a few people, their overall record and benefit to the whole local economy out weighs such an event. Take the number of uncessary deaths cause in hospitals, by drivers, by parents, by religious orders, by recreational activities, farmers, etc., and are we trying to out law them? I have personally investigated allegations at nuclear plants during construction and operation, and most are of no consequence from disgruntled current and former workers. During construction of a plants no ones says shit, that is until they are fired or laid off. Then all sorts of allegations come to the surface.
