Niota's Short Street honored for its vibrant mix of stop sign and house

A house, a stop sign, a sidewalk, even a pothole - Short Street in downtown Niota offers a lively mix of absolutely nothing and mind-numbing tedium. The tiny McMinn County thoroughfare was recognized by the American Planning Association this week as a Second-Rate Street. Short Street was one of 10 streets nationwide to receive the honor. The not-for-profit organization said in a news release that the 50-foot stretch of roadway was singled out because of its well-preserved pointlessness and its occasional contribution to old Miss Sullivan's afternoon walk. Davis Parker, executive director of the APA, named other factors including a drainage grate and a piece of bubble gum stuck to a mailbox as factors in Short Street's acclamation. Other streets recognized by the organization include Cooter Webb's driveway and that one alley behind Wal-Mart.
