WednewUyJULY 1. 1992 THE TENNESSEAN 0 3B New TVA chief likes Runyon-like approach ; KNOXVILLE (AP) Four years worth of personnel cuts and reorganization have posi tioned tva ror the 21st century, the agency's new chairman said yesterday. "The job's not finished," John B. Waters said in a news briefing. "There's a lot left to do, and I think we're equipped to do it" Waters, 62, a lawyer and a member of the TVA board since 1984, WATERS was named chairman Monday by President Bush. Waters, from Sevierville, had been recommended for the promotion by departing chairman Marvin Runyon, who will take over as postmaster general on July 6. During Runyon's 4!2 years as chairman, TVA cut its work force by nearly a third, to 21,000 employees. It kept electric rates steady for five years, refinanced several bil lion dollars in high-interest debt and reduced operating costs by more than $500,000 a year. Waters said the business-oriented approach adopted under Runyon should continue. He said the massive reorganization of the agency the past 4'2 years was a transition from a construction-oriented business into an operating agency. "If you're going to be efficient you cut back, look at overhead costs. That's not just at TVA, that's around the industry," he said. "TVA responded to that change the last, four years. We made those difficult and painful decisions to scale back. "We've accomplished that task. Now our job is to continue to operate an efficient generating company and an efficient economic development arm of the government" Waters said he is committed to TVA's nuclear power program. TVA has two operating nuclear power plants, Sequoyah near Chattanooga and Browns Ferry near Athens, Ala. Plans are to get two more units at Browns Ferry back into operation, then complete, license and operate four units at Watts Bar near Spring City, Tenn., and Bellefonte near Scottsboro,Ala. Waters' term expires next May. Several officials are endorsing him for a second term. Waters said yesterday he was contacted by White House officials about a possible reappointment before Runyon resigned. Waters said he has no commitment from the White House that he will be reappointed and would not expect any. He said he does not expect a decision to be made until around April.

Man pleads guilty, makes deal to implicate wife DUNLAP, Tenn. (AP) A Ross-ville, Ga man pleaded guilty yesterday to two counts of first-degree murder in the 1991 slayings of his common-law wife's aunt and uncle. ; Edward A. Wooten, 31, entered the pleas before Sequatchie County Circuit Judge Tom Greer as part of an agreement to testify against his wife, Cheryl Lee Holland, 27. '. Prosecutors believe Holland masterminded the March 2, 1991, slayings of Clarence (Joe) Harvey, 57, and his wife, Mattie (Teah) Harvey, 54, at their home on Lewis Chapel Mountain. . The Harveys were each shot in the head and money was taken from their house before it was burned to the ground, police said. Wooten has told police he killed Harvey and Cheryl Holland shot Mattie Harvey. Wooten was arrested in April 1991 and helped police recover the couple's bodies, which had been stuffed in the trunk of their car and dumped in the Tennessee River near Bridgeport, Ala. Cheryl Holland disappeared a few days after the slaying, remaining at large until Feb. 26, when she was taken into custody in Austin, Texas, after the slayings were recounted on NBC-TV's Unsolved Mysteries program. Greer will sentence Wooten after Cheryl Holland's trial. District Attorney General Bill Pope Jr. said if Wooten cooperates as agreed, the state will recommend that he be sentenced to two concurrent life terms in prison. SAVE $120,000 j.
