LETTER TO THE EDITOR: Local leaders stepped up when catastrophe struck


Those of us living in Middle Tennessee are blessed to have had very few public disasters in our lives. But we had a huge one recently on Interstate 65 at Peytonsville Rd.

To the Editor:

Those of us living in Middle Tennessee are blessed to have had very few public disasters in our lives. But we had a huge one recently on Interstate 65 at Peytonsville Rd.

I write this to recognize and give honor to the many emergency service personnel who carried out their responsibilities with efficiency, discipline and intelligence. The workers and their leadership are obviously well-trained in their particular tasks, conveying confidence to the public that they are worthy of the positions they hold.

And there is John Shroer, who showed remarkable leadership in organizing a swift cleanup and removal of weakened sections of the overpass at the crash site, as well as the immediate scheduling of actions to get the project back on schedule. We are very fortunate to have such leaders among us.
