TVA Ranks in Top 10 for Economic Development for Fifth Straight Year

 

Tennessee Valley AuthorityKnoxville, TN – For the fifth year in a row, the Tennessee Valley Authority has been named by Site Selection magazine as one of the top 10 North American utilities for economic development achievement.

In 2009, TVA and its distributor customers, working with state and local partners, helped attract or retain more than 26,000 jobs and leverage more than $4 billion in capital investment for the seven-state TVA territory.

“Being recognized by Site Selection magazine for the fifth consecutive year is definitely a win for all of our economic development partners,” said John Bradley, TVA senior vice president of Economic Development. “This economic development success is the result of teamwork between distributors of TVA power, state agencies and economic, industrial and community leaders across the TVA service region.”

Cumberland Fossil Plant is located northwest of Nashville on the shores of Barkley Reservoir on the Cumberland River. It produces more power than any other plant in the TVA system. In fiscal year 2004, its two generating units turned out over 18.5 million megawatt-hours, more than any other TVA fossil or nuclear plant. That represented almost 12 percent of TVA's total generation for the year.

Air Force combat medics serve critical role on PRT

 

Written by U.S. Air Force Capt. Tristan Hinderliter
Laghman Provincial Reconstruction Team Public

Regional Command East - Combined Joint Task Force - 101Forward Operating Base Mehtar Lam, Afghanistan – U.S. Air Force Master Sgt. Simon Deyell stands in front of about 15 Soldiers and Airmen explaining how, while on a dismounted patrol, some Afghans brought him a young boy whose head and shoulders were covered in blood.

When Deyell cleaned the blood off, he discovered the cause of the bleeding was just a small cut on the back of the boy’s head – the incident showed how even minor head wounds can bleed profusely, he said.

Deyell, deployed from Peterson Air Force Base, CO, is the noncommissioned officer in charge of medical operations and the senior combat medic with the Laghman Provincial Reconstruction Team here. Deyell and fellow medics U.S. Air Force Senior Airman Jeffrey Marr and U.S. Air Force Staff Sgt. Nikolia Saunders from Langley Air Force Base, VA, recently provided combat lifesaver refresher training to about 50 of their teammates on the PRT.
