New Red Light Camera

News alert: The City of Morristown has taken the painstakingly task of placing new speed cameras at heavily traveled roads such as 25E.This was done in effort with the overwhelming support by the citizens of the group known as the H.S.C.N.......{Hig hway safety crowd nuts." We now go live to our reporter on the street,-{camera zooms to a nicely dressed gal in front of the city hall building.}-"W ell Bob, I'm now here at the Hamblen County City Hall Building with just some of the supporters of for the newly installed speed cameras.These cameras will once again be proven to keep all the citizens of Hamblen County, and even those traveling through this county with overall life saving protection against what we all fear"..... "Those who intentionally disobey the law and who are coming after us in their vehicle to kill us.}... An elderly Woman steps in front of the camera....."T his is Miss Myrtle Safe T. Body everyone, and she's here to tell us just how safe she feels with the newly installed cameras.".... .Grandma leans forward to the microphone.... "I'm so glad that our great and precious city council members are gracious enough to allow us, the citizens of Hamblen County, the overwhelming protection from those who are out to kill us all, especially me, when I'm on my way to go play Bingo every weekend." "Thank you Myrtle, and now back to you Bob".......Ca mera zooms away from the perfectly applied makeup smiling face of the Woman reporter.  (Jun 22, 2014 | post #124)

New Red Light Camera

I would love to have a discussion with the highway safety nuts who support the 'scameras.I just don't know how we all have survived this long without the miraculous electric eyes peering upon the pavement.The key words here is easily generated funds while someone wearing a button up shirt with a tie is hollering that it's all about safety.  (Jun 14, 2014 | post #38)

big boom

I've been reading about these mysterious booms for awhile now here on topix.I finally got to hear one last night-{Saturday Night} somewhere around after 10 pm.I live here in Hawkins County around 2 miles from the Hamblen County/Hawkins County line and heard it though I didn't feel the ground shake.I started pulling it up on the computer and have found that folks in other states are experiencing the same thing, large sounding booms that have been described as muffled thunder.Some people have reported their homes shaking as well.The sound I heard last night appeared to have originated in the Southwestern direction from my home which would have put it around the Whitesburg/East Hamblen County direction.Now please keep in mind that I was in the house when I heard this so I'm guessing as to the true point of origin. The sound seemed to roll across the large field as it was heard, more so from ground level as opposed to the sky such as a sonic boom initiated from a jet aircraft as it breaks the sound barrier.Today I have found out that the sound last night was also heard in Webster Valley which is located a couple of miles off of highway 70 South in Hawkins County which is roughly around 16 miles from my home.The sound was also heard over near Cherokee Drag strip off of highway 11W.Many hypothesis have been suggested from meteors coming into the atmosphere and exploding,Tectonic plate shift, underground dynamite being used and even to Scalar Electromagnetic Waves being tested.I'm with most of you in wondering what is the source of the explosions and the point of origin also.  (Mar 2, 2014 | post #18)

mysterious red lights

As an avid night sky watcher, I'm always intrigued about any and all lights that I see and are moving.Most lights can be associated with aircraft either commercial or privately owned while in flight.From where I live, one can usually see the Tri Cities Airport commercial traffic coming in on approach or climbing in altitude on departure as well as the Lear Jets coming in on final approach toward the Morristown Airport and a variety of small planes and helicopters such as Lifestar and military flying in different directions.Most of the aircraft that I notice are flying from the East heading toward the West.Occasionally one can even spot the satellites as they reflect the Sunlight just after dark when the Sun is well down over the horizon, but not half way around the Earth.I'll really be paying more close attention now looking for red lights as this is very interesting.  (Feb 8, 2014 | post #13)

Any of the old topix registered people out there?

I mainly frequent the Morristown topix Forum, but occasionally drop in here from time to time.  (Aug 3, 2013 | post #29)

What is wrong with Florida? Foreal?!

Agreed, some may have that "it will never happen to me attitude." Perhaps if people lose their ability to safeguard themselves and throw caution to the wind then the consequences can be threatening.Once someone loses their inhibitions like many do in a drug culture then they also lose their self awareness for taking care of their bodies.The "high" or "buzz" is more important at that time than their future health.  (Jul 17, 2013 | post #34)

You propose some very good and interesting statements and lets not forget the Ocean surrounds the state which provides a year long retreat for a lot of people.I think that most folks want to escape to a state which offers ocean front leisure because most people dislike the cold months of Winter.  (Jul 17, 2013 | post #33)

Typo, the above should have read "infected ". I'm cracking up at myself, I sometimes type way too fast.  (Jul 16, 2013 | post #25)

I think it's the persons lack of regard of how the virus is transmitted.Intravenous drug users are the most likely to be infested due mainly to direct blood to blood contact before the virus has a chance to die.Opportunistic Blood Borne pathogens thrive in this environment.I also believe that people have become more less concerning in their regards to this virus and many sexually transmitted diseases.  (Jul 16, 2013 | post #24)

You appear to be one of the very select few posters on this entire forum that I could have a decent conversation with.Since I have researched the topic of H.I.V. then perhaps we can have a conversation on it.  (Jul 16, 2013 | post #22)

Zimmerman.....A Clear Case Of Self Defense

Apparently there is no clear evidence of who started the fight.We do know that Zimmerman started to follow Martin by his own admission, though after that much speculation has come into the case about who may have initiated the physical altercation.  (Jul 11, 2013 | post #3485)

Given that they're living in Florida and being assaulted and can prove it through some means then it just might work.  (Jul 10, 2013 | post #3163)
