While I don't disagree about people talking through a show (I had to politely shush my neighbors at one point)...or people kinda losing their attention during a Closer Walk with Thee.

But being upset that people sang loudly through "I and love and you" just shows that you don't follow the Avetts very closely. At many shows the Avetts encourage the crowd to sing along with that song (for most of the last year it was the final encore song). Just check out the Bonnaroo version of the song on Youtube (or listen to the crowd during the song on Live Volume 3) and you will see what I mean.

No violence erupts at events at McKenzie Arena because they have professional event managers and proper security.

Good intentions or not, poor management is the root of many of these problems.

Insanity: doing the same thing over and over again and expecting different results. ...which basically sums up the management of Club Fathom since 2006

Funny to go back and read some of the comments from the original article. Typical assumptions...DANGER! CRIME!

...or, the poor guy just had a heart attack.

My condolences to the family. It said he liked the outdoors, so at least he died in a place he enjoyed.

If Tennessee was in the SoCon South Division, they wouldn't even get a bye into the SoCon tournament...they'd be stuck behind Davidson (who beat #11 Kansas) and College of Charleston (who beat Tennessee heads-up, Clemson and almost knocked off #4 Louisville last night).

Top end of the SoCon is tough this year...unfortunately the bottom end is terrible (and that, right now, includes the hometown Mocs)

Everyone involved have been pretty much universal in pointing out her love for her children.

And it was pretty easy to determine that her husband was having an affair, I seriously doubt she didn't already have proof of it.

So, instead of divorcing her husband, taking him to the cleaners financially (because of his infidelity) and getting custody of her children...she decided to drive off a cliff? Yeah, that makes sense.

Too many people are watching too many crime shows on TV...murder conspiracies or being driven to the point of suicide are much exciting than just the sad reality of a tragic accident...hell, it just happened again last week on the W Road (thank goodness that person survived)

Occam's razor.

The school returned to a 4-year program in either 2008 or 2009, they now have both 2 and 4-year programs of study.

Twitter is for twits. Quod erat demonstrandum.

And so are comment sections of online newspapers. ;)

4,500 lives, 32,000 wounded and $800,000,000,000.00 spent.

4,500 sons and daughters that will never return to their loved one's...32,000 vets, thousands of which will need long term care (which will cost billions more)...and 800 BILLION dollars we will never get back (that could have been used for the betterment of our own country, instead of being flushed down a latrine in the desert)

And for what? A country and region that is now even more volatile than it was when the war started.

But hey, both political parties managed it exploit it in one way or another for their own gain (either by supporting it, or campaigning against it)...which is what it was really all about to begin with. Political and financial gain of politicians. Throw'em all out!

I own a business and live on the Frazier Avenue and I must say, while I was skeptical at first, I couldn't be happier with the new lighting. Less energy, much brighter light and, so far, much more reliable.

The old lighting was dim and the covers yellowed after about a year and the old lights had to be changed constantly (in the past, on any night, I could usually count at least 4-6 light bulbs that needed to be changed on just a two block stretch of Frazier...and it took forever to have them serviced, sometimes months). So far, I have only seen one light malfunction, ironically, right next to my store (and it was quickly repaired and hasn't malfunctioned since).

I am also happy to report that it has helped in crime prevention. For instance, in the alley that runs to Coolidge next to my shop, which used to be a constant source of graffiti and homeless hanging out in the shadows due to dim or non-working lights, not a single problem since the lights have been installed (I used to have to call the police at least once a month to report some sort of problem).

And the police officers I have talked to that work Coolidge seem to be very pleased with the lights, it makes their job a little easier.

It would be nice if everyone would just put their partisan politics aside for once and admit that this is a pretty good thing for Chattanooga...something innovative, that saves money and energy over the long term (oh, with technology that actually seems to work) and creates jobs for the Tennessee Valley.

Tere have already been a number of officials from other cities who have visited Coolidge to see the lighting system, I have met some of them personally as a few of them have come in my shop to ask about the lights, wanting an unbiased opinion.
