My weekly wrap last weekend contained a couple of paragraphs on a bill that would allow citizens to vote on whether to permit the water in their community to be fluoridated. The response from some the dental community was rather angry and incredulous.
But I also received a lot of responses from people who thanked me for keeping an open mind.
One of the individuals sent me this link to a video called An Inconvenient Tooth. It is a little long but please watch it with an open mind.
There is legislation in the Tennessee House and Senate that would allow school resource officers and teachers to carry guns in schools.
I've had a great deal of phone calls in the office and email on this bill.
Some people don't feel guns in school are appropriate under any circumstances. Others feel school resource officers should be allowed to carry guns. Others think the SRO's and teachers should have guns. Others are afraid that children will be intimidated by the guns.

(NASHVILLE, January 10, 2013) - Representative Susan Lynn (R-Mt. Juliet) was appointed Chairman of the House Consumer and Human Resources General Subcommittee on Thursday. Lynn will also be serving on the Consumer and Human Resources full committee and the House Insurance and Banking Committee.
"First let me say how thankful I am to the people of Wilson County for once again allowing me the opportunity to represent their interests in Nashville. I am also honored that my friend, Speaker Harwell, has placed her confidence in me to serve as Chairman of this important subcommittee" said Rep. Lynn. "General subcommittees do the heavy lifting; working out the details of legislation, finding common ground or holding back bills that are not quite ready to advance."
The House Consumer and Human Resources Committee reviews legislation dealing with consumer protection laws, and all human resource and labor law regulations such as workers compensation, union bills or wages.
"My background is ideal for this chairing this committee. Professionally, I oversee safety, legal compliance and supply chain concerns for over 20,000 consumer products. My conservative Republican philosophy and BS in Economics provide a good foundation from where I will work to balance the employee and business interests that are involved with the often controversial bills that will come before my committee." stated Lynn.
Lynn's second assignment, the Insurance and Banking Committee, considers legislation regarding insurance, banks, and other financial institutions.
Susan Lynn is serving her fifth term in the Tennessee House of Representatives. She lives in Mt. Juliet. Professionally, she works in regulatory compliance and process improvement for an international corporation that produces consumer products. Contact Rep. Lynn through www.susanlynn.net.
