This technology is just another example of further invasion into our personal privacy. People should be screened sure but, at what point do you draw the line?

I should correct my original comment. She didn't win a nationwide talent contest. She came in second.

rdd - I should take exception to your comment but, seeing as though you can't even write in a complete sentence I doubt you would understand what I'm saying in the first place.

rosebud - Yes, she helped in the fundraising effort for the Forgotten Child Fund, that is not in question. However, her exposure in the media would help raise money for any worthy cause. My problem with her being added to the festival as a "headliner" is simply the fact that she does not carrying the catalog of recognizable material to really play the stage. She has an incredibly new act, that does not have the experience, catalog, or name recognition as others that have played the festival in the past. For my part, I hope she performs as well as everyone thinks she will. I just hope that the Friends of the Festival organization didn't just book her for her name alone.

Am I the only person that thinks she hasn't come anywhere close to earning this spot yet? Sure, she won a nationwide talent contest but, can she really hold the attention of a Riverbend crowd...let alone on closing night?

Having a neighborhood school that children that live in the immediate area can't even attend is completely ludicrous.

Really dbcoop?! You think it was a good idea to follow the letter of the regulations? Who in their right mind would do this even though the regulations state what they do? The least the hospital could have done is hold the body of the child until the parents could figure something out. Seriously Erlanger...

ChattaVol06... Regulation of liquor and wine is not under the purview of the local Beer Board. The state ABC board regulates licenses for establishments serving liquor and wine. The argument of whether they should be allowed to continue serving liquor and wine is a valid one. However, the Chattanooga Beer and Wrecker Board has no authority at all in that area. It would be wise for the ABC board to take a look and make their own decision quickly on whether to revoke the serving license from Fire & Ice. Problems will continue to occur at this and other establishments that continue to have the ability to serve liquor and wine after having their beer serving licenses revoked. The safety of a business and its' patrons should be top priority. A business such as this should also take into account the responsibility they have to its' community as well. The staff of Fire & Ice and Midtown have proven their inability to control volatile situations in and outside of their businesses. That is the reason action should be being taken.

amnestiUSAF84... Adults should behave like adults. That's what it boils down to. Pulling alcohol sales from all venues of entertainment would solve absolutely nothing.

I work right behind Brainerd Village and it would be a VERY welcome addition. The lunch options in the area are very slim and I usually have to go into East Ridge during the busiest time of day to grab a quick bite. I hope it opens quickly!

I will surely draw fire for saying this but, this figures. Another right-wing conservative whack-job that should probably never have been elected in the first place spouting off on the death penalty. Should people sit on death row for years and years before receiving their punishment...no. Do I think there should be a death row to begin with...no. It shouldn't be up to us who lives and who dies. Plain and simple...I don't think any one of you commenting here would have the stones to pull the trigger or the lever to kill anyone. There are other solutions to death row...besides, death is to quick, toeasy a punishment for what the people who ACTUALLY belong(as far as the courts have decided)on death row deserve.

All this just because the government can't get their taxes.

She said she's not sure why Chattanooga has become a destination for police shows.

They may say that a city's crime is not a factor in choosing where they film but, I am willing to bet if we had zero crime they wouldn't be filming in Chattanooga.
