Thank you Police Chief Fred Fletcher for attending our June neighborhood meeting.

I received a parking violation June 24 on the 800 block of Market Street.

For the past 29 years, it has been my privilege and honor to call Dr. Paul McDaniel my friend. Chattanooga has had no finer preacher, pastor and citizen.
