This and That

I support the Alternate Rail route instead of expanding James White Parkway. ["A Road to Build," Sideways Glance by Rikki Hall, March 5, 2009] We need our woods and mountains.

Also, what is up with all the dog barking in Knoxville? Can we make this an issue, please? People leave their dogs out unattended all day to bark, bark, bark. Is there not an ordinance for this? Dogs should be kept inside when their owners are not home, or at least fitted with a proven bark-control collar.

This affects quality of life.
