  • K-9 Lifeline Rescue helps shelter save animals’ lives

    In the many years I have been privileged to work at the Roane County Animal Shelter, something I love to do, I’ve been so fortunate to network with many beautiful people who do what I do, to bring shelter, comfort and dignity to the sweet, sometimes scared or misunderstood animals which for whatever reason come to our work place.

    There are so many people who we work with that I cannot get through one day without appreciating their kindness and couldn’t do the job without their help.

  • We’re partly to blame for electing bad leaders

    Dear Mrs. Flo Charles: Thank you for your finely expressed column. Everyone in Tennessee should be shouting it from the housetops that we have finally been told what’s really transpired in Washington!

    How our countrymen and women must feel when they read the account of the past president and his henchmen and women bowing to the needs of our enemies is hard to ascertain.

  • GOING with the FLO: The Russian collusion is full of uranium

    The Russian story is URANIUM.

    The worst and largest scandal in American political history is being revealed. The FBI has evidence, including an eyewitness account, that the Russia nuclear officials routed $145 million to the Clinton Foundation while Hillary was still serving as Secretary of State and, while Secretary of State, she signed off on the Uranium 1 deal that gave Russian’s Putin 20 percent of our uranium.

    Is there anybody in Tennessee who doesn’t know we are facing a prescription opioid epidemic?

    Our state is leading the nation in use of prescription opioids. Crime, especially theft fueled by addiction, is raging out of control.

    Several District Attorney Generals, including our Russell Johnson, have begun efforts to hold the pharmaceutical companies liable for shipping more prescription painkillers into our state than could possibly be justified for medical uses.

  • Facts key to battling breast cancer

    By Brenda Fleischmann

    Special to Roane County News

    My husband and I recently had the privilege of participating in the American Cancer Society’s Making Strides Against Breast Cancer Walk in Chattanooga.

    I listened as my husband told the audience about how his mother was diagnosed with breast cancer when he was 9 and how she died from the disease when he was 14.

    As a child, my husband didn’t understand what breast cancer was. Unfortunately, he did understand what it was like to lose his mother.

  • A VIEW from LICK SKILLET: Drain the swamp! Rid it of that blonde creature!

    According to Tuesday’s News Sentinel’s front page, “U.S. Rep. Marsha Blackburn believes a law that critics say provided less scrutiny of drug companies and distributors had unintended consequences and should be “addressed immediately,” a spokesman said Monday.”

  • GOING with the FLO: Wake up, America! Forces want to destroy us

    President Obama’s administration has left us vulnerable to the enemies of America.

    The Muslim Brotherhood has established a united, anti-American global Islamic front, expanding its outposts and influencing America.

    There is an unholy alliance between the leftists and the Islamists. The Obama administration coddled, funded and praised Islamic regimes abroad.
