Power outage causes Mayor Ashe to miss several meetings


A recent power blackout in the Northeast has caused Mayor Ashe to miss several meetings. Although Knoxville wasn’t directly impacted by the blackout, nobody was around to inform Mayor Ashe. Sources say that he was sitting in his office listening to headphones when word of the outage was announced. Afraid of leaving the office under such dangerous conditions he simply sat in his chair awaiting the return of electricity – until a janitor came by in the evening hours and pointed out that the lights were simply turned out and that all was well.
