Good Deed: Band shows all-star status with donation

For a second straight year, Chattanooga All-Star Band has shown its support of individuals served by Orange Grove by donating its Riverbend performance fee to the center. They recently presented a check for $1,050.

The band, consisting of the very best musicians locally, is selected from area bands and Hall of Fame members. According to their manager, Bob Payne, the band was so excited about this year's fundraiser that one member who may have needed their portion more than others, didn't hesitate to give back.

"Orange Grove Center is an organization that has been around and has done wonderful things," said Payne. "Hopefully, we will do it again next year."

You're a compulsive liar and fraud, Orr. Now you're calling the residents of Orange Grove 'retarded' and using their disabilities to promote your twisted perversions.

Shame on you.
