Tennessee theme park proposal starts controversy

Posted Monday, October 17, 2011 8:16 AM | Contributed by Jeff

After losing a battle to demolish the racetrack at the Tennessee State Fairgrounds, a group of neighbors was annoyed to hear Metro Council members saying the city should consider putting up some roller coasters, too. But some councilmen say it’s smart business for the city, which is about to study the best use of the 117-acre site, to explore the possibility of opening a theme park there.

Thanks! I owe you one. :)

I didn't intend to zing you P3. I honestly want to help people to communicate better. You are never too old to improve grammar (or spelling in my case) and vocabulary. I'm a writer and I'm still learning.


I don't care if alot is not a word, d**k head.

You should, especially if you want people to care more about what you are trying to say than being distracted by how messily it is communicated.

While I appreciate that your soul caters to my kind, I'm quite happy renting for now, thanks.
