CC bridge naming
The Carter County Commission will likely have the final say next week but the Highway Committee decided Monday to name that new bridge across the Watauga River in the Siam community after two men. One side of the superstructure will bear the name of John Curtis, the man who brought telephones Elizabethton and was a driving force 100 years ago in the construction of Wilbur Dam. On the other side of the bridge, Bill Allen will be honored. He was a dairy farmer who lived and prospered in the area giving some of his land for approaches to the bridge to be safely built. Relatives of both men appeared before the committee and it was a brief stalemate on naming the structure. A compromise was reached and the matter is now referred to the full Carter County Commission.
