4 out of the top 10 are government related (1,2,4 & 7). They are diverse as far as type of jobs, but not diverse as far as source of revenue - taxes.
Right on Tim!
We all should be alarmed, especially with the explosive growth of government.
It should come as no surprise that elected officials for the City of Murfreesboro are attempting to annex so many property owners. Revenue!
Councilman McFarland stated that everyone in Rutherford Co was a resident of Murfreesboro. I suppose he forgot for which office he was elected.
I believe the city should change their logo from "Creating a Better Quality of Life" to "We're Coming to an Area Near You" or "To Infinity and Beyond"
The scariest words are... "hello, I'm from the government and I'm here to help you!"
"We're Coming to an Area Near You"
That is great - need DoNotAnnexUs.com to get some made like that.
"prosperted?" "medial services?"
Is this the result of public education? Sorry, I can forgive Joe Q Public when he does not spell correctly, but I must insist that a "News Organization" be held to a higher standard.
Kane, your expectations are totally realistic.
We apparently posted an original, unedited version of the story. but also missed "medial services" in print.
We will do better.

Maybe medial services wasn't necessarily incorrect. :)
