our view:


The new year will bring many new challenges to local government and citizens.

One issue area residents will have to deal with is a new round-about at the intersection of Concord Road and Northshore Drive.

The debate over whether or not the insertion of a round-about was a wise move on the part of TDOT is now a moot point as the intersection nears completion.

It is our hope that those who drive through that intersection will exercise patience and caution making acclamation to a new — well, for most in this area, anyway — traffic devise safe.

Speaking of traffic, the town of Farragut will most likely implement its red-light cameras at the Kingston Pike and Concord, Campbell Station and Smtih roads, and Grigsby Chapel and Parkside Drive intersections this year.

Hopefully this will cut down on those drivers who feel that the turning of a traffic light to red does not apply to them.

Again, we hope that when approaching these intersection drivers will exercise caution and back off the accelerator and avoid rear-end collisions brought on not by drivers stopping for a red-light but from tailgating or, as the citation will read, following too close.

Concerning the upcoming County Commission primary, we hope that the voters select a candidate with values, ethics and a moral sense to “do right” the taxpaying public — something new for a change.

For everything else — good luck!
