$43 million from TVA a good start

No, TVA can’t fix all the harm it has done with the disastrous ash spill late last year.

But its $43 million reparations package is a huge step forward.

We also agree with officials that most of the money should be pumped into improving Roane County schools — then, perhaps, used for recreation opportunities for residents.

And by recreation opportunities, we are not talking about league sports and ball fields, but biking trails and other opportunities for the exercise and amusement for residents of all ages.

We have been hard on TVA over this mess, and we will continue to hold the agency accountable.

But we are pleased officials have acknowledged and accepted the scope of the harm and are making an attempt to make it right.

You got this one right, TVA.
