Burchett ready to support JWP plan

Yesterday evening we reported a story on Knox County Mayor Tim Burchett's decision to more than likely support plans to extend the James White Parkway - something he was against earlier this year.

We had hoped to talk to Knoxville Mayor Madeline Rogero, but she declined to comment Friday, according to Angela Starke, her PR flack. Guess she was too busy naming her office of sustainability director. Whatever that is.

Anyhoo, the state will make its decision in the coming days to three weeks. Actually, let's not kid ourselves, the state's already made its decision and - at this point - everyone in that City County Building that needs to know, knows just what the decision is.

(Hint: If you're a hippie, you won't be happy.)
