Hundreds attend Smyrna-area meeting on toxic air
By Jon Gargis

SMYRNA -  Despite boasting earlier in the evening that his company's Smyrna-area facility falls well below the federal limit for emissions of a cancer-causing chemical, the president of Sterigenics admitted Tuesday that wasn't the case less than five years ago.
"If you go by the regulatory standard, 99% of what we handle would be an air permit to emit 4,000 pounds, and we emitted 200 last year," said Phil Macnabb , speaking to a packed crowd in Campbell Middle School's theater, in reference to his company's use of ethylene oxide to sterilize medical equipment. The chemical is also known as EO or EtO.
But Macnabb said there had been "a period in 2015" when additional technologies were put in place to bring the annual ethylene oxide emission output down to about 200 each year from about 3,000 pounds annually - about 15 times greater - with the 3,000-pound annual output spanning back "for a number of years."

Smyrna Mayor Max Bacon announces political intentions

SMYRNA - Max Bacon, who has served as Smyrna's mayor for 34 years, will not seek another term - that's the bombshell news with which Bacon ended what will be his final annual State of the City address.
"Sometimes it's just got to come to an end, and when to pick that time is tough, but I'm good - I'm good with it," Bacon said through tears at the close of his address. "(This choice) is for myself and the folks of Smyrna. I want them to have the best, the best leadership. ... I'm OK with it."
Qualifying for the Nov. 5 election begins Aug. 20 and ends Aug. 22.
