“Flo” Matheson Reportedly Still Running For 6th District Congressional Seat
Peg Broadcasting News/The Tennessean/CPD Wednesday May 18, 2016

A Crossville Congressional Candidate facing an indictment in a marijuana grow operation is reportedly not ready to throw in the towel. According to The Tennessean, 77-year-old Florence “Flo” Matheson says she is innocent. Matheson also reportedly told The Tennessean that she was “going to work even harder now” for marijuana decriminalization and indicated she will continue to seek the Democratic nomination in August for the 6th Congressional District Seat, which is currently occupied by U.S. Representative Diane Black.

It was on Friday May 13th, 2016 that a joint narcotics operation led to the service of a Search Warrant at 16536 Genesis Road, in Cumberland County, TN. That property is owned Florence “Flo” Matheson and was reportedly being occupied by Stephen M. Harrington. According to a press release, a search of the property found and indoor marijuana grow operation, firearms, cash, processed marijuana and over 180 marijuana plants. Police say that this is the second grow operation found by Crossville Narcotics Detectives involving Stephen Michael Harrington, who is currently serving 3 years of Supervised Probation.

Some evidence of an illegal grow operation were found inside the residence, however, the full scale cultivation was found in a large barn, just a few hundred yards away. The inside of barn had been finished to create two separate tropical grow environments, with electrical service costing thousands of dollars annually to operate. Additionally, remote wireless surveillance equipment had been installed to monitor areas of the compound, including the locked gate at the driveway entrance.

Criminal indictments will again be sought on Stephen M. Harrington, at an upcoming session of the Cumberland County Grand Jury. Additionally, criminal indictments will also be sought on the owner, and primary resident of the property, Florence “Flo” Matheson, in connection with the operation.

According to The Tennessean, Matheson denied knowing about the grow operation and said the incident has motivated her to continue to fight for the decriminalization of cannabis. Harrington also defended Matheson by saying “the only thing this woman is guilty of is helping out a homeless disabled vet who betrayed her trust."

Tennessee Among Top Number of Boating Accidents
National Safe Boating Council Tuesday May 17, 2016

New recreational boating statistics were released by the U.S. Coast Guard just in time for National Safe Boating Week, which kicks off this weekend through May 27. Tennessee ties with Washington for No. 10 in the nation for boating accidents, with 107 boating mishaps in the states in 2015. Download the full report at http://uscgboating.org/statistics/accident_statistics.php.

Nationally, drowning was the reported cause of death in three-fourths of recreational boating fatalities in 2015, and that 85 percent of those who drowned were not wearing life jackets. You never know when there may be a boating mishap, so it's important that everyone onboard always wears a life jacket.

The National Safe Boating Council will kick off its Wear It! campaign promoting safe boating and life jackets with National Safe Boating Week, May 21-27. I'd love to connect you with a local boating expert or Rachel Johnson, Executive Director of the National Safe Boating Council, to talk about boating safety.

TVA considering small modular reactor near Oak Ridge
AP Tuesday May 17, 2016

KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (AP) - Just a week after voting to scrap an unfinished 1970s-era nuclear power plant in Alabama, the Tennessee Valley Authority began taking steps toward possible future construction of small modular reactors.

TVA spokesman Jim Hopson says several designs for the new generation reactors are in the pipeline to be certified by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission. TVA is asking the commission to approve a site plan that could accommodate any one of those designs at its Clinch River site near Oak Ridge.

Hopson says the small reactors produce around 80-200 megawatts of power. In comparison, the traditional reactor at TVA's Watts Bar Unit 2 will produce around 1150 megawatts.

Unlike large reactors, the small reactors can be operated at different power levels and are designed to be used in combination.
