A good friend, I see by the Roane County News, is running for county commission. It seems to me he will be joining a good group.
I was impressed with the decision the commission made to buy school buses outright, rather than borrow money to buy them — thereby saving the interest taxpayers would pay.
(I noticed this because I used to be on the school board and knew that they had to replace a certain number of buses each year.)
It turns out they’re doing the same thing with the sheriff’s patrol cars.
