STORY FOUR: As many in the county were outraged by the proposed closing of two of TVA's three coal-fired units, many more were up in arms about serious cutbacks in funding by the state for many smaller and even medium and large state parks, leaving Lake Malone with no security lights and no gas for boaters much of the year. Without these two simple essentials many see the park living on borrowed time. See what you think.
