Peachers Mill Road closure


top-spot-logoPeachers Mill Road will be closed to through traffic beginning at 7 a.m. on Friday, June 19, and is scheduled to reopen by Wednesday, June 24.  The closure will be between Abraham Drive and the entrance to West Creek School.  A contractor will be removing the existing road in the area and replacing it with new asphalt.

The closure will enable the necessary work on this section of road to be completed within a matter of days rather than reducing the road to one lane and taking weeks to complete.  While the Street Department regrets any inconvenience created by the closure, it is felt that the accelerated time table will, in the long run, minimize overall disruption to the public. «Read the rest of this article»

Aide to State Senator sends racist e-mail


Tennessee Democratic legislators and Black Caucus members are outraged over an e-mail about President Barack Obama that was sent by a state employee who works for Republican State Senator Diane Black.

The e-mail from Sherri Goforth, a legislative aide and twenty year employee for the state was sent to other staff who also work for Republican Senators. Goforth claims to have hit the wrong button and sent the email to the wrong list of people according to published reports.

The controversial email showed either a portrait or photo of all 43 U.S. presidents but when you get to the picture of Barack Obama the 44th president there is only a wide set of white eyes in a black box background.
