  • Looking for former Re-Ed students for possible reunion

    I’m looking for students, faculty and staff from East Tennessee who attended the Children’s Re-education Center (Re-Ed), also known as Smallwood at Moccasin Bend in Chattanooga during 1968 and 1969.

    After 45 years, it would be great to have a reunion. Most were from the Chattanooga area, but some were from other parts of East Tennessee.

    Anyone who is interested, please call me at 423-698-3643.

  • GUEST OPINION: Expect fireworks over Hobby Lobby decision

    We celebrated the nation’s 237th birthday on this July 4th holiday weekend with fireworks of all kinds and colors, but there are some ongoing pyrotechnics around First Amendment issues from religious liberty to free speech.

  • Kingston has the chance to do right with development

    This is an open letter to Kingston City Council concerning the development behind Woodhaven Subdivision and Davis Drive.

    Please forgive me for beginning with a question, but, if the hopeful developers of the acreage behind our homes propose to appropriate our entry road and to then make it impossible for large trucks to turn toward our homes in order to protect us from unwanted annoyances, how will we get large trucks to our homes when we need to move?  

  • Kingston’s 4th of July possible only with your support

    The city of Kingston again provided a very enjoyable celebration of the Fourth of July with all the activities at City Park, concluding with a fabulous fireworks display.

    The city even got the cooperation of meteorologists, who provided picture perfect days!  

    It was nice to see the race boats again.

    If you enjoyed the entertainment, why not stop at the Community Center and leave a tip — maybe a couple dollars for each member of your family that went to the water front.  

  • Shopper grateful for return of lost wallet at grocery

    I’m humbly grateful to the woman who returned my wallet that was left at Cash Saver in Kingston on July 3.

  • State got it wrong on abortion, writer wants law change

    There is a growing awareness across our state that some balance is needed with regard to the practice of abortion in Tennessee.  

    As result of a wrongly decided ruling by our state Supreme Court, the people have been silenced, and our ability to regulate abortion has been removed. Because other state throughout the Southeast have stronger restrictions on abortion than Tennessee, we have become a destination for the practice.
