Pipe bomb maker sought

By PATRICK HALL, The Wilson Post
An unexploded pipe bomb was discovered Sunday afternoon in a field along Holmes Gap Road, which Wilson County Sheriff Terry Ashe said had been thrown into the field in an attempt to test the bomb’s explosive potential.

Ashe said the pipe bomb measured 8 to 10 inches long and was “well made” out of PVC pipe, a wire fuse and filled with an explosive powder. The property owner who found the bomb called the Sheriff’s Department Sunday afternoon and the department’s Explosive Ordinance Disposal team recovered it.

“This is a great concern for me that someone out there is making this kind of thing,” the sheriff said.

Wilson County posted the second highest median household income for 2009 and the second lowest percent of people below the poverty rate out of the 20 most populous counties in Tennessee as part of the United States Census Bureau’s American Community Survey.

Data released this month showed Wilson County having a median household income, adjusted for inflation, of $61,082 in 2009. (The 2009 figures are the most recent. The official data from the 2010 census will become available in early spring 2011.)

The American Community Survey provides one-year estimates for geographical areas with a population of 65,000 or more. The survey is an ongoing process providing communities with data in one-, three- and five-year periods. Data from 2009 was released this month for more than 7,000 geographical areas in the United States.
