Cannon County May Lose State Trooper
Email Print
JASPER, Tenn. - The prospect of a 9 percent state budget cut next year not only would likely mean fewer state troopers on Tennessee highways - it could mean 13 small counties won't have any.

Those 13 counties - Scott, Bledsoe, Meigs, Sequatchie, Hancock, Johnson, Cannon, Clay, Pickett, Trousdale, Moore, Lake, Houston - would have to rely on neighboring counties for crash calls and assistance.

I would really hate to lose the THP patrols from Cannon Co.

This will probably not me noticeable change as we we all know Sheriff Nichols has absolute control of his office and fine qualified deputies patrolling ALL areas of the county full time.

Sheriff Nichols own words.(Dec 14 2009)
"I do have absolute control over my employees and they have worked hard for the citizens of Cannon County since I came into office September 1, 2006"

Time for a state income tax?

Consumption and sales tax revenues are dwindling as more and more people buy more and more stuff online or across state lines. We also have one of the highest food taxes in the United States, which is the least fair and least progressive tax that can be levied on a people.
