When Howie Rose took office as Director of Emergency, he was hired because he was the best in the state. Mike Farmer commented on Mr. Rose's resume and capabilities and whenever anyone in the state is in need, Mr. Rose is the person they contact. He is highly trained in all facets of Emergency Management. What does the new part-time overseer bring to the table? NOTHING. He works for the TWRA; he knows nothing about emergency management. If he has any training, Mr. Rose is likely the one who taught the class. He has taught classes at Roane State, Oak Ridge National Laboratory, Department of Homeland Security and other agencies. Everyone should be able to see what's happening. Mr. Woody promised a job to a supporter. He is bound and determined to chase Mr. Rose off and bring in his man. He just might have that opportunity to set Roane County back ten years or more when we had no equipment, and no active emergency management department. Mr. Rose knows how to get grants from the Federal Government and has purchased much of the equipment we now have with this grant money. Roane County citizens should be up in arms about the cruel treatment Mr. Rose and his assistant are suffering because of political promises. Roane County, wake up and stand up for what is right. This isn't it.

I want to know how much of pay cut did Mr. Woody take?  I would guess 0%.

Well, I think we should give the man the chance to show us what that he is good for the job before judging him. I have an online homeland security degree and I know what to look for on a person in this position. I think we should just wait and see, if he's not good for the job he'll go down inevitably.

Roane Co EM

What is really concerning is during the election campaign, Mr. Woody referred to the monitors in EM's information center as "TVs." Golly Bum.
Anyone that understands or has participated in emergency preparedness training knows you need large monitors in order to see all that is going on.
It is disappointing that first, Howie Rose isnt' paid a competitive salary and second, Mr. Woody is cutting it to bring in someone from TWRA. Perhaps this TWRA person has had the appropriate training and participated in response excercises, but I doubt it.
If it wasn't for Howie Rose and his group, TVA would have floundered for many hours when time was critical. When TVA wanted a group from Texas to come in, too late--Howie Rose was already there and in control
Big mistake Mr. Woody...Stand up County Commissioners!

Call for County Commissioners to stand up?

"Big mistake Mr. Woody...Stand up County Commissioners!"

Don't hold your breath on that one. If they did "stand up", it would likely be in support of Ron. Personally, I think he made a mistake on this one. Unfortunately, the Commissioners have other things on their agenda. There are certain parties in Roane County, and on the Commission who will not rest until they manage to unseat State Representative Hurley. Has she had a couple of personal glitches, like the incident with the Trooper, the initials on the desk, the dog in the courthouse? Yes. HOWEVER, how many of us have ever had a ticket and liked it? The initials? Well, I would bet all of the other desks are now "fixed", but I would bet that before this incident... you probably would not have found more that a handful of desks that were not marked. The dog in the Courthouse? Well, although Ron "did not want to tell her the dog had to leave", there are rumors that a couple of courthouse employees have kept their dogs in their offices all day, in the past. Is there a double, or even triple standard going on here? Well, that depends on whether you believe the rumors about the dogs being kept in courthouse offices, and who you believe is the driving force behind the unending effort to unseat Rep Hurley. There is a Commissioner who has been quite vocal, and has been against her ever since she took office. Is there a connection here? You decide.

Fellow Roane Countians, look around before you vote. Rep Hurley has voted the way she was sent to Nashville TO vote... conservatively. All of you harping on how the new drug testing bill is an attack on the poor? Horse fertilizer. What it IS, is an attempt to keep some of the people who we subsidize with money and other services from abusing that help. Initially I am in favor. Would I change my mind after I see how the bill is to be implemented? Well, that is possible, but unlikely. We cannot continue wasting money. If the money/services we are giving people allows them to use that to "live", and then use what cash they have to buy drugs? THAT is wasting money.

Capable hands

Mr. Jinks, Howie's replacement, is fully capable of managing emergency situations. He is a former Knoxville Police Captain from what I've read. That position is responsible for commanding a large number of police officers and managing crisis situations. I don't know a lot about this Howie fellow, but to slander Mr. Jinks or Mr. Woody without the proper investigation into his resume, which I'm sure is far more distinguised than I even know, is to be unfair and wrongly judgemental. Let's see how he handles the next crisis, God forbid we have another, then judge his performance.
