County creek event set for Saturday

In his never-ending metal detecting, Bigfoot hunting quest, Knox County Mayor Tim burchett will be hanging out in the Halls Greenway (behind Food City/7114 Maynardville Pike) at 10 a.m. on Saturday.

Apparently, the mayor is participating in the “Families in the Creek” event, which the county's spin team says “is an educational opportunity for families to explore a local creek and learn about water quality issues.” (And for the mayor to finally catch Sasquatch.)

In addition to the fish assessment, the event (hosted by the county and the Beaver Creek Task Force) will include a stream walk, benthic macroinvertebrate (WTH????) assessment and a scavenger hunt.

Oh and get this: Registration for the event is now closed but was free to the first 40 registrants.

What the deuce? Then why did the county's spin team even send this out today? Bah. Since I typed it up, might as well post it.

UPDATE: Here's more on the creek event, right smack here.
