The zipline to nowhere...

It's time to revisit a sore spot.  Of course, it involves Sterling Webb.  And now, i want to involve the City of Sevierville.

When it was announced, last February, that a zipline was being considered across the French Broad River, i fired this email off to TVA and Jim Bryant with the City of Sevierville:

A question about the proposed zipline across the French Broad River

Dear Mr. Bryant ~

In all the stories about the proposed zipline, the developers' names are never mentioned.

I'm asking you point blank:  Is it Eco Summit Development?  Is Sterling Webb involved with the development in any shape, form or fashion?

The reason i ask is because Sterling Webb has left a trail of broken dreams and unpaid people in Sevier County.  You can read a lot about him, here:
and here:

People like me are afraid that Mr. Webb will tear the place up and then abandon the project as he runs for his life.  Not to mention another string of unpaid contractors, etc.

Guess what?!?!?  No answer.  From anyone.  This only confirmed our (yours and mine) collective thinking that it could be another Sterling Webb financial fiasco.

Now, on the Teetering on the Brink of Insanity post, comes this comment:

He's doing a new zipline at the river using all undocumented workers and with questionable engineering. Someone will get killed on that contraption he has built. I hear it's a good place to buy your drugs from his Mexican buddies. How does this guy keep getting away with screwing over everyone he comes in contact with? He's like Sevier County's own little Bernie Madoff.

Oh, how could all those TVA and City of Sevierville Powers That Be fall for Sterling Webb's latest grift?  Those folks could not POSSIBLY believe this is all a good idea!  It makes me, personally, think that Sterling is buying them lunch, everyday.

You infer whatever makes sense to you...
