New Suspect Emerges In Camak Stone Disappearance

Back when the border was being established between Georgia and Tennessee a drunk/lazy/scared of Native Americans/Incompetent Government Worker surveyor put the Camak Stone, that which marks the boundary as mandated by Congress, in the wrong place.

Senator David Shafer stoked the fires between the two states a while back, and then in August of last year, that darned stone came up missing, with no suspects. Until now.

In a seemingly unrelated move, Georgia Trend Magazine has come out with its list of the 100 most influential Georgians. The list is weighted to CEO types and the usual statewide electeds (though new House Speaker David Ralston is curiously omitted), but a few Senators, Reps, and local officials are included for good measure.

Concurrent with this release, Senator Jeff Mullis has forwarded to us a press release announcing his inclusion in this prestigious company, and we congratulate him on his award. Says the presser:

Georgia Trend identified Senator Jeff Mullis as “one of the state’s most influential leaders on transportation matters. His efforts to establish a high-speed rail system linking Atlanta and Chattanooga got a big boost in September when the U.S. Department of Transportation awarded a $14.2 million study grant for the project.”

“I would like to thank Georgia Trend magazine for this prestigious honor. I am extremely humbled to be listed with such instrumental leaders in Georgia. I look forward to continuing our work with
Georgia’s leaders and citizens to solve the transportation issues facing this great state while creating jobs in this difficult economic environment” says Senator Mullis.

But the footnote in his release gives us the clue that we may have been looking for to solve the case of the missing Camak Stone:

Sen. Jeff Mullis serves as Chairman of the Transportation Committee. He represents the 53rd Senate district which includes Chattanooga, Dade, and Walker counties and portions of Catoosa County.

Chattanooga? Someone needs to be looking a little farther north than the middle of the Tennessee River for that stone. I’m hoping we got the new Volkswagen Plant in the acquired territory. And I hope the good folks of Chattooga County don’t mind being traded for some water and Rock City.

    I gotta make a correction for ya. Rock City actually is in Georgia (Walker County, in fact).

    Congrats to Senator Mullis for being honored by Georgia Trend.

    Who needs troops? One well place explosive that generates a crater that extends from the river to the state line would be enough. When Tennessee complains, just say it must have been one of those fireworks stores that they’re so fond of up there.

      • AubieTurtle says:

        True but once Tennessee outlaws firework stores for being the cause of Georgia getting access to the river, Georgia would surely legalize them. It’d be the industry that saved us from ultra low flush toilets, urinals at home, and a total outdoor watering ban. Georgia would have to legalize fireworks, even if was just a cover. As a bonus, we’d have plenty of water to put out resulting fires.

    You forgot to mention that the lazy, drunk, scared and incompetent government worker was also a graduate of the University [sic] of Georgia.

    The Camak Stone located a mile inside GA…Rock City believed to be in TN but also placed inside GA – all part of the Tanalach Media Conspiracy.
