Rocky River (Tennessee)
The Rocky River is a 31.0-mile-long stream in the east-central portion of Middle Tennessee in the United States. It is a tributary of the Caney Fork River, is part of the Cumberland and Mississippi watersheds; the lower portion of the river is part of the reservoir created by Great Falls Dam, located near the river's confluence with the Caney Fork. The Rocky River rises on the slopes of Jakes Mountain, a 2,204-foot summit north of the Cagle community atop the Cumberland Plateau in Sequatchie County. Just below its source, the stream enters its Studer Lake impoundment as it flows northward through a rugged area of abandoned surface mines. Beyond this lake, the river crosses into Van Buren County, where it continues northward through rugged hills. After passing the historic "Rocky River Crossing" along Pleasant Hill Cemetery Road, the river begins its descent to the Highland Rim, losing 900 feet in elevation in less than four miles before steadying in the White Hill area. Flanked by the walls of the Cumberland Plateau and Barnett Mountain, the river continues northward through the Riverview and Laurelburg communities.
At the latter, the river veers westward toward Warren County again turns northward, forming the boundary between Warren and Van Buren for the remainder of its course. Just before reaching the Goodbars community, the river passes under State Highway 30. Beyond Goodbars, the river flows through a series of oxbow bends, one of which nearly forms a meander cutoff. After passing under Bone Cave Road and U. S. Highway 70, the river flows just east of the Rock Island community as it enters the slack waters of Great Falls Lake; the river empties into the Caney Fork about a mile upstream from Great Falls Dam. Its confluence with the Caney Fork marks a three-way junction between Warren, Van Buren, White counties; the drainage area of the Rocky River covers 111 square miles. The Tennessee Valley Divide, which separates the Cumberland and Tennessee watersheds, crosses Jakes Mountain a few hundred yards south of the source of the Rocky River. Streams on the north side of the mountain flow into the Rocky, while streams on the south side are part of the Sequatchie River watershed.
A string of ridges extending from the Cumberland Plateau, among them Long Mountain and Barnett Mountain, split the watershed of the Rocky from the watershed of the Collins River to the west. Important tributaries of the Rocky include Harper Branch, Sycamore Branch, Dyer Gulch Creek, which flow into the river from the west, Samples Fork, Rocky Branch, Pine Branch, which join the river from the east. Laurel Creek, which empties into the river's eastern bank just downstream from Goodbars, drains part of the town of Spencer. Rock Island, a small island at the confluence of the Rocky River and Caney Fork, was an important early landmark and river ford for settlers in the eastern Highland Rim region. Two Indian trails, the Chickamauga Trail and the Black Fox Trail, intersected near the island. Historian J. G. M. Ramsey reports a battle taking place at the island in 1793, near the end of the Cherokee–American wars. During the 19th and early 20th centuries, Higgenbotham's Trace, a major road connecting McMinnville with the Sequatchie Valley, crossed the Rocky River near Pleasant Hill Cemetery, just north of Van Buren-Sequatchie county line.
In 1838, the northern route of the Trail of Tears, the path over which the Cherokee were removed from the eastern mountains to Oklahoma, followed this road. While the procession camped at the Rocky River, the Cherokee leader Junaluska and several supporters deserted and attempted to return to the east, they were arrested and incarcerated. The Rocky River Crossing and the adjacent roadbed, which look much as they did 170 years ago, have since been added to the National Register of Historic Places. Historian Arthur Weir Crouch reported several early fords along the Rocky River, most notably Brights Ford at the river's Laurel Creek confluence, Hash Ford, or Indian Ford, near its mouth. A wooden bridge was built at the latter ford in the mid-19th century, but was destroyed by a flood in 1872; as part of its Great Falls Dam project, the Tennessee Electric Power Company built the Yost Bridge about a mile above the river's mouth in 1915, the Blanks Bridge about three miles above the river's mouth in 1916.
A bridge for Tennessee Highway 30 was built in the early 1920s. Siltation from surface mining conducted in the upper Rocky River basin during the early and mid-20th century damaged several sections of the river, threatened two federally-listed species that live in the river, the bluemask darter and the slender chub. Restoration efforts have focused on the erection of livestock exclusion fences to create a reforested riparian zone along the river, backfilling and revegetating abandoned surface mines.

Tennessee's 4th congressional district
The 4th Congressional District of Tennessee is a congressional district in southern Tennessee. It has been represented by Republican Scott DesJarlais since January 2011; the district lies in the southern part of Middle Tennessee, but stretches into East Tennessee. It is composed of the following counties: Bedford, Franklin, Lincoln, Marshall, Moore, Rutherford and Warren, it contains significant portions of Bradley and Van Buren counties. Most of the district is rural; the area is hilly, has many well-known geographical features related to its location on the Cumberland Plateau. The most famous of these is Fall Creek Falls in Van Buren County; this part of Tennessee has several well-recognized distilleries such as Duck River, George Dickel, Southern Pride, most famously the Jack Daniel's Distillery in Lynchburg. The region encompasses many of Tennessee's higher education facilities, such as Middle Tennessee State University, Sewanee: The University of the South, Bryan College, Lee University. According to the 2010 census, the five largest cities are Murfreesboro, Smyrna, LaVergne, Shelbyville.
Throughout the 20th century, the 4th district took many different forms. Though, in most cases, it encompassed most of the rural area between Knoxville, it has been the state's largest district in terms of area, one of the largest east of the Mississippi River, because of low population density and the district's rural character. For thirty years, this area of Tennessee was represented in Congress by Joe L. Evins. Evins' successor in Congress was future vice president Al Gore, Jr. who represented the 4th from 1977 to 1983. The district's current configuration dates from he 1980 census, when Tennessee gained a new congressional seat. Parts of what were in the 1st, 2nd, 3rd, 4th, 6th districts were combined to form a new 4th district. Most of Gore's territory became the 6th district; the new district took pieces of traditional Republican East Tennessee and traditionally Democratic Middle Tennessee. It was so large. In 1982, Democrat Jim Cooper, son of former governor Prentice Cooper defeated Cissy Baker, daughter of Senate Majority Leader Howard Baker.
Cooper went on to represent the district for the rest of the early 90s. On paper, this district was not safe for either party, given its volatile demographics. Much of the eastern portion of the district, for instance, had not been represented by a Democrat since before the Civil War. However, Cooper was reelected five times without serious difficulty. Cooper gave up his seat to run for Senate in 1994, he was succeeded by Republican Van Hilleary in the massive Republican wave of that year. Hilleary was reelected three times without much difficulty, handily winning a second term as Bill Clinton carried the district due to Gore's presence as his running mate. In 2002, Hilleary made a failed attempt to become Governor of Tennessee, was replaced by state senator Lincoln Davis. Davis held the seat for eight years. In 2010, Davis was challenged by South Pittsburg doctor Scott DesJarlais, who rode to victory on the Tea Party wave of 2010 despite Davis raising more money; this marked the first time that an incumbent had been defeated in the district since the reformation of the district in 1980.
Following the DesJarlais victory and the 2010 census, the 4th was made more compact. The district lost its northern portion, including its territory near the Knoxville. On the other hand, the 4th gained significant additions with Rutherford County and northern Bradley County.

2010 United States Census
The 2010 United States Census is the twenty-third and most recent United States national census. National Census Day, the reference day used for the census, was April 1, 2010; the census was taken via mail-in citizen self-reporting, with enumerators serving to spot-check randomly selected neighborhoods and communities. As part of a drive to increase the count's accuracy, 635,000 temporary enumerators were hired; the population of the United States was counted as 308,745,538, a 9.7% increase from the 2000 Census. This was the first census in which all states recorded a population of over half a million, as well as the first in which all 100 largest cities recorded populations of over 200,000; as required by the United States Constitution, the U. S. census has been conducted every 10 years since 1790. The 2000 U. S. Census was the previous census completed. Participation in the U. S. Census is required by law in Title 13 of the United States Code. On January 25, 2010, Census Bureau Director Robert Groves inaugurated the 2010 Census enumeration by counting World War II veteran Clifton Jackson, a resident of Noorvik, Alaska.
More than 120 million census forms were delivered by the U. S. Post Office beginning March 15, 2010; the number of forms mailed out or hand-delivered by the Census Bureau was 134 million on April 1, 2010. Although the questionnaire used April 1, 2010 as the reference date as to where a person was living, an insert dated March 15, 2010 included the following printed in bold type: "Please complete and mail back the enclosed census form today." The 2010 Census national mail participation rate was 74%. From April through July 2010, census takers visited households that did not return a form, an operation called "non-response follow-up". In December 2010, the U. S. Census Bureau delivered population information to the U. S. President for apportionment, in March 2011, complete redistricting data was delivered to states. Identifiable information will be available in 2082; the Census Bureau did not use a long form for the 2010 Census. In several previous censuses, one in six households received this long form, which asked for detailed social and economic information.
The 2010 Census used only a short form asking ten basic questions: How many people were living or staying in this house, apartment, or mobile home on April 1, 2010? Were there any additional people staying here on April 1, 2010 that you did not include in Question 1? Mark all that apply: Is this house, apartment, or mobile home – What is your telephone number? What is Person 1's name? What is Person 1's sex? What is Person 1's age and Person 1's date of birth? Is Person 1 of Hispanic, Latino, or Spanish origin? What is Person 1's race? Does Person 1 sometimes live or stay somewhere else? The form included space to repeat all of these questions for up to twelve residents total. In contrast to the 2000 census, an Internet response option was not offered, nor was the form available for download. Detailed socioeconomic information collected during past censuses will continue to be collected through the American Community Survey; the survey provides data about communities in the United States on a 1-year or 3-year cycle, depending on the size of the community, rather than once every 10 years.
A small percentage of the population on a rotating basis will receive the survey each year, no household will receive it more than once every five years. In June 2009, the U. S. Census Bureau announced. However, the final form did not contain a separate "same-sex married couple" option; when noting the relationship between household members, same-sex couples who are married could mark their spouses as being "Husband or wife", the same response given by opposite-sex married couples. An "unmarried partner" option was available for couples; the 2010 census cost $13 billion $42 per capita. Operational costs were $5.4 billion under the $7 billion budget. In December 2010 the Government Accountability Office noted that the cost of conducting the census has doubled each decade since 1970. In a detailed 2004 report to Congress, the GAO called on the Census Bureau to address cost and design issues, at that time, had estimated the 2010 Census cost to be $11 billion. In August 2010, Commerce Secretary Gary Locke announced that the census operational costs came in under budget.
Locke credited the management practices of Census Bureau director Robert Groves, citing in particular the decision to buy additional advertising in locations where responses lagged, which improved the overall response rate. The agency has begun to rely more on questioning neighbors or other reliable third parties when a person could not be reached at home, which reduced the cost of follow-up visits.

For the river in New Zealand, see Collins River. The Collins River is a 67-mile-long stream in the east-central portion of Middle Tennessee in the United States, it is a tributary of the Caney Fork, is part of the Cumberland and Mississippi watersheds. The river drains the scenic Savage Gulf area, located just below the river's source, empties into Great Falls Lake at Rock Island State Park; the Collins River passes through Warren counties. McMinnville, Gruetli-Laager and Beersheba Springs are among the communities located within its watershed; the Savage Gulf section of the Collins River has been designated a "scenic river" by the State of Tennessee. The Collins River rises near the town of Palmer atop the Cumberland Plateau, where the Middle Prong Collins River joins Mill Creek. Flowing northwestwardly, the Collins passes under State Route 399 before entering Savage Gulf, a scenic gorge where the river descends 800 feet to the Highland Rim; the town of Beersheba Springs straddles the edge of the Plateau overlooking the river valley.
State Route 56 crosses the Collins twice. Crossing into Warren County, the river veers northward along a meandering route, passing under State Route 8 and State Route 127. Just east of McMinnville, the river absorbs its key tributary, Barren Fork, passes under U. S. Route 70S. After winding its way northward for several miles, the river turns eastward, passing under State Route 288 as it enters the slack waters of Great Falls Lake. At Rock Island State Park, the river enters an oxbow bend, nearly joining the Caney Fork before abruptly turning southward eastward northward again before emptying into the Caney Fork just upstream from Great Falls Dam; the oxbow creates a peninsula. Two bridges — an older truss bridge no longer in use, a newer bridge that carries State Route 287 — cross the mouth of the Collins River; the Collins River watershed covers 811 square miles, drains parts of Warren, Van Buren, Sequatchie and Cannon counties. The watershed contains 1,003 miles of 69 lake acres. Over half the watershed is forested, just over a third is used for either pastures or row crops.
The upper parts of the river along the Cumberland Plateau flow along Pennsylvanian-era siltstone and sandstone. Along the river's Highland Rim portion, Mississippian-era limestone is more common. Karst features such as sinkholes and caves are not uncommon in this area. One of the state's largest caves, Cumberland Caverns, is located within the Collins watershed; the 23-mile Barren Fork empties into the Collins east of McMinnville. Other tributaries include Big Creek and Savage Creek, which join the river at Savage Gulf, Hills Creek and Scott Creek, which empty into the Collins just north of the Warren-Grundy line, Charles Creek, which empties into the river downstream from McMinnville. During the late 18th century, the Old Kentucky Road, which followed an old Indian path, crossed the Collins River at Shells Ford, near modern McMinnville. A string of other used fords were located just above the mouth of the river, including Flat Shoals Ford, near modern Campaign. Reed's Ferry known as Black's Ferry, operated near the modern U.
S. Highway 70S crossing throughout much of the 19th century. In the late 19th century, businessman Asa Faulkner constructed a wooden bridge across the mouth of the river as part of his Falls City development. Around 1900, Warren County built four bridges over the river: the Hennessee Bridge, the Lusk Bridge, Martin's Ferry Bridge and Harrison's Ferry Bridge, both located on the upper part of the river. A flood in late March 1902 destroyed Faulkner's bridge and two of the county's bridges– the Hennessee and the Lusk– along with bridges over Barren Fork and Charles Creek; the Tennessee Electric Power Company built the truss bridge which still spans the mouth of the river as part of its Great Falls Dam project in 1916, rebuilt and raised the bridge in the mid-1920s. The current vehicle bridge, which runs adjacent to the truss bridge, was built by the Tennessee Department of Transportation in the 1980s. Most of the Collins River was designated a "scenic river" as part of the state's Scenic Rivers Program.
The lower 42 miles of the river were removed from this designation in 1983, the scenic designation now applies only to the upper parts of the river at Savage Gulf. A 15,590-acre scientific state natural area now protects the Savage Gulf area; this area is part of South Cumberland State Park. The Collins Gulf Trail at Savage Gulf follows a portion of the river as it descends from the Cumberland Plateau; the lower portion of the Collins River is part of Great Falls Lake, the reservoir created by Great Falls Dam near the river's confluence with the Caney Fork. The oxbow peninsula between the Collins and Caney Fork is part of Rock Island State Park. Part of the Colllins River Trail, maintained by the park, passes along the wooded embankment above the shore of the river along this peninsula; the Collins River is one of the few rivers in Tennessee with a good population of muskie. Muskie were stocked in various watersheds throughout Tennessee, including the Collins River from 1982 through 2006. Rocky River List of rivers of Tennessee
Sequatchie County, Tennessee
Sequatchie County is a county located in the U. S. state of Tennessee. As of the 2010 census, the population was 14,112, its county seat is Dunlap. Sequatchie County is part of the TN -- GA Metropolitan Statistical Area. Sequatchie County was created in 1857 from a portion of Hamilton County, it was named for the Sequatchie Valley. The word sequachee from ᏏᏆ ᎤᏤᏥᏍᏘ siqua utsedsdi in Cherokee means, "opossum" or "he grins." Settlers began arriving in what is now Sequatchie by the early 19th century, drawn to the area by the fertile land in the valley. At the outset of the Civil War, Sequatchie was divided over the issue of secession. On June 8, 1861, Sequatchie Countians voted in favor of Tennessee's Ordinance of Secession by a vote 153 to 100. In October 1863, Confederate General Joseph Wheeler led a raid into Sequatchie, burning nearly a thousand wagons and capturing livestock. During the late 19th century, the Douglas Coal and Coke Company conducted extensive mining activities in the Dunlap area.
The company constructed 268 beehive ovens, now known as the Dunlap Coke Ovens, to convert coal into coke. The ovens are now the focus of a local park. According to the U. S. Census Bureau, the county has a total area of 266 square miles, of which 266 square miles is land and 0.2 square miles is water. Sequatchie is one of three counties situated in the Sequatchie Valley, a long, narrow valley running northeast-to-southwest across the eastern portion of the Cumberland Plateau; the county is flanked by the Plateau's Walden Ridge escarpment on the east. The Sequatchie River, which spans the valley, passes through the county. Two major highways, U. S. Route 127 and Tennessee State Route 111, intersect in Dunlap. While the two other counties in the Sequatchie Valley and Marion, are grouped with the East Tennessee grand division, Sequatchie is grouped with Middle Tennessee.
