Wonderful, these attitudes will continue to promote the image of ignorant, backward southerners. You are not true Christians but weak, scared hate mongers.
Excellent - thank you for writing this. I wish everyone would read it and reflect on it.
Unbelievable! Evict a national treasure and tolerate a derelict barge. What is the real issue under this facade? Some developer buddies upset?
Obstructs the view of the Aquarium? Looking at a piece of history is not unpleasant. Can't you imagine people on board dressed in their finery ready for a voyage, then look at the Aquarium and see what?
This type of thinking by the Mayor's office is typical, let's get rid of the old and tarnished and in with new and shiny. Wonder why everyone goes to Europe to marvel at centuries old cultural relics?
While we are at it perhaps we can follow Leviticus 25:44-46 NLT and acquire a few slaves too.
Mathew 7: Judge not, that you be not judged. Some people need to read the entire book and not just passages they feel support their presumed superior position. What happened to love thy neighbor and acts of kindness?
Great column, keep up the good work.
Thank you - the Folk School is a valuable resource to this community and does not deserve to be in this position. I hope everyone will support them in their efforts going forward.
The plain and simple fact is privatization of TVA would result in higher rates for consumers. It will drive up operating costs which will be passed on to consumers. Borrowing rates have already risen because of the conversation. Potentially under privatization there would layoffs in an effort to reduce costs. Why would anyone be in favor of damaging such an important economic resource?
TVA is a rare success of the federal government and should be cause for celebration.
Maybe that is the real issue, Congress is afraid people will realize there was a time when they were actually productive.
I agree, Corker's stance on this issue is indefensible. TVA is a true success story, it receives no federal funding and must generate it's own operating revenue. TVA manages this and keeps rates to a minimum. This should be cause for celebration and ridiculous ideas. Privatization would only result in higher rates for consumers.
I hope people remember this at election time, especially a few thousand TVA employees.
This piece was just stupid and a reflection of the quality of this alleged newspaper.
No matter which side you favour, this piece is so biased it should only be read for entertainment purposes and not for serious, accurate journalism which is lacking in this provincial publication.
I would take the World Wrestling Federation more seriously.
Name dropping would be another offense.
"you have been invited to a dinner where Gov. Bill Haslam and Curtis Adams are to be the featured speakers but have some very poor directions and are driving very slowly in"
No matter how important you think you are it's not an excuse for poor driving habits
Times Free Press is an ironic name for a paper telling it's readers and the citizens to not exercise their rights.
Whatever is good for business and advertisers takes priority.
