U.S. District Court Judge Thomas Varlan has approved an agreement by the Tennessee Valley Authority to pay $27.8 million to settle claims from more than 800 property owners who suffered damages from 2008’s coal ash spill. Varlan had ruled 2 years ago that TVA was liable for the spill, which happened when a containment dike burst at the TVA’s Kingston Fossil Plant. More than 5 million cubic yards of ash was released from a storage pond, causing damage to hundreds of acres as the sludge flowed into the river.
The Tennessee Valley Authority is eliminating more than 2,000 jobs- the agency's largest in more than two decades- as part of a $500 million cost-cutting campaign. Officials with the utility say they are making the cuts this year to pare expenses and make electric rates in the Tennessee Valley more competitive with neighboring utilities. Most of the staff reductions are being made by not filling vacant jobs and through retirements and resignations by the end of next month. TVA President Bill Johnson said the voluntary reduction offers were well received and avoided the need for massive firings, although some employees are being laid off.
The Tennessee Department of Labor and Workforce Development's mobile Career Coach will be at the Van Buren County Chamber of Commerce on Friday from 10am to 2pm. Career Coach staff will be on-site helping people to create resumes and register with their website, Jobs4TN.gov.
It doesn’t officially kick off until tomorrow, but that hasn’t stopped early birds from hitting up vendors along the World’s Longest Yard sale Route. The 600 plus long stretch of bargains runs straight through the heart of Crossville. While some locals are less enthusiastic about the traffic congestion that the sale can bring, others realize the significant boost it brings to the local economy. Crossville-Cumberland County Chamber of Commerce President Brad Allamong notes that many of the out of town shoppers shop, eat and sleep in Crossville. Cumberland County Schools are taking notice of the sale’s impact as well. For the first time in 20 years, schools will be in session at the same time the sale is in effect. School officials caution that busses may experience delays due to heavy traffic along Highway 127, and ask drivers to use caution, as children may be present.
