Re: (meteorobs) Tennessee meteorite?

I ran across the news this morning, and was lead to believe that it had
basic characteristics of a meteorite.  Fused on one side, light grey
material in the middle edges.  Hey the news has been wrong before.  Does any
one know if there is a history of recovered meteorites in Tenn?
