On Tuesday Rhea County commissioners approved a resolution to purchase property for La-Z-Boy's local trucking needs. County Executive George Thacker said following the unanimous vote, "This is the first time this commission has done something we can point to and say, 'We brought these jobs here.' We're sending a message that we want jobs and we want La-Z-Boy here. We want expansion here."

Yep, and for those that are wondering what they are:
Lot Lizard: n.(lott-liz-zurd): trashy, street-level, female prostitutes who frequent some truck-stop parking lots and rest areas at night. Most lot lizards openly "advertise" using CB radios; others boldly walk from truck to truck randomly knocking on doors. Same as: commercial company; lizard; pavement princess; sleeper leaper.

For any further explanation please feel free to contact George Thacker. He should be able to supply any local contacts as well as fees and fee negotiations.

No one said they didn't have a job, they just said they'd like to have a job at La-Z-Boy. Sometimes people do and have changed jobs for better benefits, different shift, location, many reasons. Some people are just getting CDLs. Just a few possibilities. Not everybody is a loser because they don't have a job right now. Im not trying to sound like a dickhead either.

I thought the topic was about La-Z-Boy , property, rhea county commission and some jobs around here. Even with attempting to make a positive move in a good direction there will always be someone to block it with a cocky negative remark to diminish the positive with the negative. I thought you were all about coal mining anyways. In playing the game of playing on words, why would you even pull a cockblock on a good move in this county for some jobs for some of the people that are willing to, want to, and would go for a job like this? We don't need the definition of a Lot Lizard, which I'm pretty sure the majority of us Rhea county adults are smart enough to know what that is. What we do need here is jobs.

I'm not cock blocking anyone. I'm neither for nor against the coal mining. And that truck driver made the initial mention of lot lizard and I was making a joke of it. As far as Lazyboy and the trucking is concerned I wish them well.

Did anyone see the Lazyboy truck that got pulled over by the trooper yesterday at the Exxon? The driver not only got a ticket for 62 in a 45 but got a dot inspection at the same time. The trooper said that Dayton had its hand full with the other side of the tracks so he was patrolling Dayton state routes. It's a shame that the state has to step in and do our locals job for them.
go ahead

I'll bet 50 to 1 that Laz-Z-Boy will locate their truck terminal in Tazewell.
