Two of Warren County's three state lawmakers talked about important issues Friday at the annual Legislative Breakfast, sponsored by the McMinnville-Warren County Chamber of Commerce.
Reps. Kevin Dunlap and Judd Matheny addressed several issues with a packed house at the TSU Nursery Research Center. Sen. Janice Bowling did not appear due to a conflict in Knoxville.
Dunlap and Matheny answered prepared questions from the podium and from the audience regarding such issues as health care and education.
While this was going on, a group of protesters demonstrated outside the building, holding signs in support of the governor's Insure Tennessee proposal, which was rejected in a legislative committee during a special session in January.
You can hear Friday's program from the legislative breakfast Monday at 10am and 5pm on 960 WBMC and online at www.960wbmc.com .
County officials plan on asking the state to install rumble strips on a section of Highway 8 on Harrison Ferry Mountain where a motorist recent crashed, causing a cell tower to fall, affecting communication for many customers of DTC.
Authorities said the driver fell asleep at the wheel and the vehicle went off the road and struck a guy wire, causing the tower to fall.
Member of the Warren County Highway and Bridge Committee said if there had been rumble strips on that stretch of road, the driver might have woke up in time to avoid the accident.
The county plans to ask TDOT to put down the rumble strips to protect drivers on that stretch of highway.
