Your Tax Dollars at Work

Big Waste of Money

I'm not in a mood to get political, but hey there's something you can't ignore when April 15th comes around. Luckily, if you stumble across this and you haven't done them yet, you've got a couple of bonus days this year!

In the 1960's while planning for the upcoming need for more electricity, TVA bought some land off the Cumberland River in Trousdale County. Plans called for a Cooling Tower for the Hartsville Nuclear Power Plant. Construction started on the plant in 1975. It got this far to make what you see here, but in 1984, the plans were cancelled. I don't want to think about how much money was spent on it.
