Making martyr of activist hurts our reputation

-A A +A

Special editorial

By The Staff

EDITOR'S NOTE: The following is opinion. We have posted it where we usually post news because we are disturbed by an escalating series of events recently involving the TVA ash spill and an activist working in the Swan Pond area.

At a time when a reasoned touch has been called for, both TVA and local authorities have chosen a more ham-fisted approach.

Our community's reputation could pay the price.

Here's what's been happening. We'll get to why we think it is a problem a bit later.
