World scrambles as Russia tightens grip on Crimea
KIEV, Ukraine (AP) -- Warning that it was "on the brink of disaster," Ukraine put its military on high alert Sunday and appealed for international help to avoid what it feared was the possibility of a wider invasion by Russia.
Outrage over Russia's military moves mounted in world capitals, with U.S. Secretary of State John Kerry calling on President Vladimir Putin to pull back from "an incredible act of aggression."
A day after Russia captured the Crimean Peninsula without firing a shot, fears grew in the Ukrainian capital and beyond that Russia might seek to expand its control by seizing other parts of eastern Ukraine. Senior Obama administration officials said the U.S. now believes that Russia has complete operational control of Crimea, a pro-Russian area of the country, and has more than 6,000 troops in the region.
Faced with the Russian threat, Ukraine's new government moved to consolidate its authority, naming new regional governors in the pro-Russia east, enlisting the support of the country's wealthy businessmen and dismissing the head of the country's navy after he declared allegiance to the pro-Russian government in Crimea.
Ukrainian Prime Minister Arseniy Yatsenyuk said there was no reason for Russia to invade Ukraine and warned that "we are on the brink of disaster."READ MORE>>>>
Manufacturing Plant To Expand In Nashville
Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam, Economic and Community Development Commissioner Bill Hagerty and Beretta USA officials have announced the company will expand its U.S. operations by building a new firearms manufacturing plant in the Gallatin Industrial Park.
Beretta, a global manufacturer of high-quality sporting and military firearms, will invest $45 million in a state-of-the-art manufacturing and R&D facility and create 300 new Tennessee jobs.
“I want to thank the Beretta family for their substantial investment in Tennessee and the 300 jobs they’ll create in Sumner County,” Haslam said. “Beretta is one of the world’s great companies, and its commitment to excellence and Tennessee’s rich history in manufacturing make today’s announcement a great match as we continue toward our goal of becoming the No. 1 location in the Southeast for high-quality jobs.”
Tennessee Department of Economic and Community Development has provided Tracy City with a grant to begin a downtown revitalization program. A committee appointed by the Mayor and Board of Aldermen has been working for several months to study downtown revitalization, develop a plan, and designate projects to implement the plan. Last week the readers of this newspaper were introduced to the historical significance of Tracy city that is the driver of the downtown revitalization effort.
The goal is to re-establish Tracy City as the commercial center of the plateau. The committee has created three working subcommittees, economic restructuring, design, and promotion. The committee invites all interested persons to join it in working on one of the subcommittees. Contact may be made through Nadene Fultz Moore, secretary for the committee, at Grundy County Historical Society Heritage Center at 465 Railroad Avenue in Tracy City, by phone at 931-592-6008 or by email at firstname.lastname@example.org.
