It was overpriced from the very beginning. To quote one Rarity Club official when it began: "we have a 10 year window to hit the baby boomers, we have to work fast. We are not interested in selling locally, we want the west coast, midwest, south Florida people." It was a scam from the very beginning,there was some local individuals that lost money, but there were other that were compensated for their involvement, that is what I hear. Let' not forget the Sequatchie Point land bust. Wonder how the 8000 acre Thornton Jasper Mountain deal will go.
The State of Tennessee is having finance problems. We need sales tax revenue, but we also need the jobs. Do we need a state income tax? I say NO!! People that do not work would not pay income tax. We have 3rd and 4th generations that have never worked and the taxpayers keep them up. Internet sales will have to be charged in the States. We have to have sales tax and not put all the State cost on property owners or those that work to survive. Living in the U.S. should not be a free ride at others expense.
I like all the comments, but the best time is spent with your children/family. Walk around, meet, and offer to help your neigbors. Most people do not even know the people around them. Help your children by taking time to read as a family. Call people you know and make sure they are fine. But as always kept your family safe.
I am so glad that a suit has been filed against Chattanooga for the waste that is dumped in the river. I do not know why the counties below Chattanooga do not join the suit. This dumping has gone on too long. The citizens above the riverfront would not put up with the sewer dumping. CHATTANOOGA CLEAN UP YOUR WASTE!!!! Water is suppose to be blue not green with waste and the river so grown up with water weeds that you can almost walk on it. I am sure that Chattanooga will find a Judge that will let them out of it and the dumping will continue. They always do!
I am glad someone is beginning to hold Chattanooga responsible for dumping sewage in the river. It has gone on far too long. Marion County has paid dearly in damaged water and lost on river use for years. We have known it, but nothing has been done by Marion County's elected individuals.
cjones72 You were not there or in the area. It was a situation that was getting out of control. People got shot and you want to say it was a outing in the park for young people. GET REAL! The police did an outstanding job controling the situation. Gangs in the park. Just what we need.
If you were not in the area last night, you do not have a clue, how large this situation was. I only saw the spill over on to Frazier Averue. I commend the officers for their working of the situation. I was shocked by the age of a great deal of the individuals. The majority were under 18. Something is going to have to be done to help the police control the gangs. Seeing the situation last night from Frazier makes me all more supportive of the police officers. They were great in protecting my wife and I from driving into the situation. I also saw a young man and his girlfriend on Frazier beside us,his girlfriend was so scared that she was bent down in the floorboard of their car. This is not the Chattanooga that I grew up to respect. I have a teen age daughter. She will not be allowed to the Northside of the river at night.
This is the worst thing I have heard. So we are just going to have Mt.View in Chattanooga. I would not buy a Chev from them. I had my fill of trying to do business with them years ago. They are nowhere near as customer friendly as Newton's was. I am sorry they sold to Mt.View. Now I hear Herb Adcox is being booted out. I wonder how many strings the Watson family had to pull to get that done. Having one chevy dealer in a city the size of Chattanooga was a thought process very poorly done. Thankfully there are dealers outside Chattanooga within 25 miles to go to such as Kimball and Dalton.
If you have a passion for automobiles, you need to come out and see the assortment of automobiles. I was a long hauler(went the whole distance) in 2005, when it went from Milwaukee,Wisconsin to Kissimmee,Florida. When we pulled out of Miller park in Wisconsin, It took an hour and a half for the cars to leave. You will see many different makes and models from the old to late model. The vendors are great and everyone is very nice. It is a 6 day rolling car show with stops for the locals to bring their cars out. You can join at any stop during the tour. Look up Power Tour 2010. See you there. It makes a great vacation, my daughter was eleven at the time and she loved it the whole way. She never got bored.
