I would really like to see a study on the reasons for incarceration. It's going to be a tough sell to get the taxpayers to fund an even bigger jail with no end in inmate growth in sight.

An old friend, June Hensley of Kingston, just died at 86. I knew her through the Southwest Point Chapter of the D.A.R., for whom she volunteered tirelessly. She had a kind heart and always gave freely of her time; she truly cared about veterans, students, and our whole community. She will be greatly missed.

Cat lovers are proposing that trapping wild and free roaming cats, spaying them and returning them to the wild takes less effort than trapping and euthanizing them. Emotion intrudes on logic on issues like this, and I personally don't see eye to eye with the trap, spay and release folks, but let's make our arguments reality based if we can. Feral cats are a huge environmental problem, just as free roaming domestic cats are also destructive predators, exotic to our North American environment.

John McCutcheon just showed up at the Dagger barbecue party at the 96 Olympics and quietly played backup for the folks who were performing. No one knew who he was except a few of us and there was a totally crappy PA system. One day I'm going to bring him to Roane County and make that up to him, even though he's really big and costs a ton of money. He'll be in Oak Ridge tonight.
