Quoteworthy

The most memorable quotes in the Chattanooga Times Free Press for April 20-25.

"Arguably, broadband high-speed Internet is the electricity of the 21st century. If our rural communities can't have access to the high speed, an industrial park is really nothing more than an electrified cow pasture."

-- State Sen. Janice Bowling, R-Tullahoma, Tenn., on the "digital divide" that leaves rural residents unable to access broadband Internet services

"We stay away not because we are scared but because we are wise."

-- The Rev. Jesse Jackson, on why he urged area residents to steer clear of a National Socialist Movement rally at the Hamilton County Courthouse

"The successes I've had were not mine. They were the successes of the community after they learned to trust their full-time public safety representatives again."

-- Fred Fletcher, whom Mayor Andy Berke tapped to be Chattanooga's next police chief, on his efforts to reduce violent crime as commander of a region in Austin, Texas
