PNN Shares Former Wall Street CEO Warren Pollock’s Economic and Geopolitical Views Of America.

PNN will seek to begin to inform Stewart Countians of pertinent world news and events as well as local happenings.  With that focus in mind, Page Two of Potneck News will sometimes be utilized to share with our readers what PNN believes to be suitable information that will help to inform and educate Stewart Countians of their world outside of Potneck. The following USA Watchdog report from Greg Hunter is eye opening and brain expanding.  Turn off the teevee.

Enjoy at your leisure.

Where PNN agrees with Mr. Pollock:

Over rationalization and benign acceptance of the status quo in our Country is true. We, as a Nation, are insolvent.  Our debt is insurmountable.

In Japan a major ecological event has occurred in Fukushima and we are still working to contain it, worldwide.

A Pompeii type of event IS coming to America.  Quantitative Easing is parabolic and unsustainable.  The “bubble” will pop.

Where PNN disagrees with Mr. Pollock:

The BRIC’s (Brazil, Russia, India, China) economy will join the USA to be the 5 largest economies by the year 2050.  PNN thinks a WAR over oil, with Russia and the USA joining forces against China, is highly unlikely.

If you were once great, you are forever great.  Greatness is born inside each and every one of us.

Never forget that, Stewart Countians.

One of the last things that Eddie Holman says in this video is, “Thank you, Jesus.  Thank you, Lord.”  This is because Eddie understands that through Jesus Christ, our Lord and Savior, all things are possible.

I will treat every post that I put on PNN from this moment on as if it will be my last. Because, surely, one of them will be.

PNN has lit a fire inside the well fortified nest that the powers that be in this County have been building for a very long time.  One of two things will happen.  Either they will silence me and PNN or we, as a County joined together, will force meaningful change.

Any vehicle that brings people together is a challenge to power.  PNN brings us together.

PNN is truthful.  Unfortunately, sometimes truth can be the most dangerous thing.

I hope you enjoy the video.  Every now and again we all just need to breathe, to relax, to smile, and do the things that make us happy.

God Bless You All.



The origins of Potneck.

Known as one of the earlier settled communities in Stewart County, there are several stories as to how Potneck received its name. One version states that there was a crook in the river resembling the neck of a tea pot. If you run down the Cumberland River you will note that this is, in fact, true.  There is a bend, a couple of miles North of town that would have, in the early 19th century, been a lot smaller and a lot more predominant as a tea pot neck.

A more colorful story, however, tells that early in the 1800’s a south side man and a north side man had an argument following a few hours of drinking during a picnic down across the Cumberland River on the north side of Dover. Remember, to go “down” the river is to go north, towards Kentucky.  The southside man walloped the northside one with a skillet.  He gave him a mean lick with a skillet!  Whereupon, the northside man smacked the southside one with a pot that, then, broke to its neck!  He was left holding only the pot’s neck in his hand.

Following this incident, the south side was known as Lick Skillet and later, Lick Creek?  The north side became know as Potneck and the name did not change. Some sort of division line had, apparently, been long established.  Possibly, that division line is now best defined as Highway 79 running East and West and the Cumberland River flowing South to North.

Early settlers of Potneck included the Cherrys, Lewis’, Williams’, Pages, Jacksons, Wallaces, and the Newberrys. POTNECK is located on the east side of the Cumberland River running about 6 miles north and away from Highway 79.  Most people between there and Ft. Campbell declare themselves to be “Potneckers”.  However, I have heard that people from as far away as California have also claimed to be “Potneckers!”.

Stewart List subscriber, Chuck Allen, writes, “Pot Neck is the area just across the river from Dover, actually behind the Headquarters [now, Pit Stop] toward Bumpus Mills, but there are people on and around Bagsby Hill that claim that area as Potneck too. I always considered the whole area as Potneck myself.”

Most everyone living there, if asked, would be proud to be called a “Potnecker”.
