Gee, this brings back memories. Remember the fight over the ownership of the Civil War train "The General" in the mid-1960's? How about the attempt by North Carolina to grab a corner of S.E. Tennessee, which conveniently held some nice mineral deposits, also claiming a bad survey?
Growing up in East Ridge, I remember well the old "State Line Road" which runs (ran?) directly behind East Ridge High School. I guess they will have to rename it?
Luckily, now that I live in Washington State, we only have to worry about the U.S./Canada international border - which apparantly generates a lot less controversy. Except, of course, for the occassional smuggling tunnel, or someone trying to build a retaining wall which encroaches on the 10-foot "neutral zone" of the border.
It's all pretty silly. Pumping water out of the Tennessee River in order to feed Georgia's water problems doesn't make sense. If the current water crisis is a temporary one, then it's not worth the huge infrastructure cost. If it's long-term, then what little water they could pump out of the Tennessee won't make enough of a difference. If the Georgia watershed feeds the Tennessee River, then why don't they just build a dam or two, and then use their own water to meet their own needs?
