I have been in touch with Ms. Horton (TVA point of contact) at TVA concerning TVA's presentation to the community about the Bellefonte Draft Environmental Impact Statement. The TVA will not be accepting public comments during this session. They will however have a court reporter present to take your personal comments at this "not so open house" event. The TVA also refuses to allow us to set up inside the building during THEIR session. The TVA states they do not allow anyone to set up during THEIR sessions other than TVA persons. But we may set up outside as long as we do not block an entrance to the Goosepond facility. (How nice of them to allow us our Constitutional Rights.)
Personally I think this is fine for us and conveys a message that the TVA does not want the public inside THEIR WORLD. They had rather place us into the cold rather than allow opposing view points. I will coordinate an outside set up with the City of Scottsboro if you all would like. I have a canopy and tables we can set up on the grass by the entrance. Think about the opportunity! This places us into the position of being the first anyone will see while arriving and the last they will see while departing, all the while pointing out that TVA places us into the cold! I will contact all local TV media for this event if you would like. This is a perfect opportunity. This has the possibility of being a media extravaganza for us.  Tea anyone?

Have a nice day,
