Over 90 of our residents showed up in a demonstration of their opposition to Centerstone's Jackson Hall. The event was coordinated by our committee of concerned citizens, including George Nuber, Susan Clasby, Ray Woody, David Brown and A.C. Howell. Marie Voss, one of the new Jackson Hall's immediate neighbors, hosted the event. Ms. Voss, the widow of Sheriff Bill Voss, voiced her concerns for her safety, especially in light of recent revelations about the history of Jackson Hall and the necessity for police involvement with its residents. There were examples of Jackson Hall residents being unconscious, fighting, committing assault, threatening and/or attempting suicide, committing illegal activity and even one allegation of a hostage situation at Jackson Hall (although the residents claimed that the accuser hallucinated the entire ordeal). Ms. Voss ended here statements by asking, "Who will protect me?"
Special thanks to all the citizens that helped to make this rally a success.
The rally was covered by the Daily Herald and News Channel 4 from Nashville.
