Chatt88, we all have been guilty of ill timed statements at one time or another. Public or Private. It is incumbant on public figures to maintain awareness of their forum if they so choose to make questionable remarks. I've never met Mr. Skillern and can only assume he is a fine and decent man. But the most decent of us have dark places we sometimes dwell. It is my belief that Mr. Skillern made witness to where his darkness lies.

larwilb60,There is substance in your statement as it relates to available jobs given to "illegal" workers. But what bearing has that on voting rights? You will not find illegals lining up in an attempt to vote. Seems the measure should be guided towards employers willing to circumvent rather than aged citizens, limited in means, who still wish to exercise their earned right to vote in the city, county, state and country they love so much. How does it address illegal immigrants by depriving proven citizens?

Did not realize that Simms was still on campus. Thought he had packed it up and ran home to ...comfort. Way to go, Simms! I wish you all the best the rest of the season. Except against the Gamecocks, of course :-)

The facility in the caption is one that came about after Amazon shut down facilities in California when they tried to renege. Texas lost two major centers and plans for others when it battled with Amazon over these issues. Now all those workers are unemployed and those who were about to gain employment remain shut out. If our lawmakers do not make good on the word of this state, no matter who made it, the facilities in Chattanooga and Cleveland will be abandoned as will the newly announced one near Nashville and plans for others. Is it really worth it? Let Walmart and others fight their own battles on fair tax issues. Amazon is operating on loopholes they were smart enough to find that does not tax non cash and carry items. It's a matter for federal ressolve in my opinion. Amazon's battle is really on the behalf of its clients.

If ever there was a cause for a philanthropist to step up, this is it! We sorely miss you Mr. Lupton. I just now you would not have sat still on this.Is this not the time for each and every Chattanoogan to pledge a dollar? Here is mine. Make it two, and TEAM has a surplus.

Unless the unit that is to ensure higher mileage costs the car companies an extra $10,000, why are prices expected to rise by up to $10,000? Its the industry taking advantage of a new idea to justify greater profits. At 10K extra per unit, the industry can afford fewer sales with the impression of lesser profits. Its a board room game to once again trick the public.

I voted "no" in the poll but on further review, it would be a valid stance to allow high school seniors to take part in school board issues. These would be the people coming of voting age (if not there already) and have the experience of depth within the system. It also could prove to be an incentive for students to become seniors as it helps introduce them to the diplomatic process. In addition, it gives greater voice to the student population the board it ultimately there to look after

In defense of the idiots, from the fingers of a Black man, they probably only meant to have some sort of depraved fun, not caring for the consequense as young folks might do. But, amnestiUSAF84 is correct. This young fellow, Smiley, whose ill advised participation in the act does not all of a sudden make the best move he could in resigning without being prompted. He has a life to live and no one can be mad at him for recieving advise, and more importantly, using it. He'll attempt to circumvent the system and resurface, for sure. But is that not what we all design to do after we make mistakes? I long to see this treated appropriately with our legal system and balanced in its weight.I am not mad at these fellows attempting to bounce back having learned from their horror.
