Tennessee has more than it's share of beautiful rivers. They're less beautiful when they overflow their banks and destroy lives and property. That was the case with the Obey (OBEE) river, until 75 years ago. This year, the construction project that tamed the Obey, and provided a fantastic recreational area is being celebrated.
