The Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association announced its Home of the Month winner as Ms. Willie Humphreys at 3902 Tacoma Ave. in Red Bank. 

The Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association nominates and chooses homes that have dramatically improved in their curb appeal.  While Ms. Humphreys always kept a nice landscape, her home was practically demolished from the tornado that ran through Red Bank in 2011, causing a tree to fall into her home.  Nextdoor neighbor, Erin Creal, said the transformation since then has been dramatic.  “I literally thought her home would be totaled.  It was a huge tree that seemed to slice the house in half when it fell and of course the roots caused extensive damage to the yard.” 

“Ms. Humphreys has always taken pride in the appearance of her home so it’s nice to be able to recognize that.  It’s what we are all about!” said Carla Quinn, Chair of Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association. 

The Red Bank Neighborhood Pride Association is a group of Red Bank residents that are committed to helping the city be a more desirable place to live. Their community meetings are held quarterly at the Red Bank Community Center behind Erlanger North. All Red Bank residents are welcome to attend.  For more information, go to www.redbankpride.org or email redbanknpa@gmail.com

Exempt Volunteer Fire Departments From Procurement Policies - And Response (2)

The Hamilton County Commission just grouped a bunch of departments together in an attempt to reign in the CVB. I haven't spoken to any commissioners, but I truly believe it was unknowingly. By mandating that all non profits that receive 25 percent of their revenue follow county procurement policies, they might as well have padlocked all local volunteer fire departments. We expect ...

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

I am constantly amazed by the many emails that I receive every day. Quite curiously, I get a heavier load than I would ever have thought because the big search engines on the Internet send my Chattanoogan.com stories far and wide. Even the local ones on the Chattanooga area bring comments and I am deeply flattered. I try to read them and lament I haven’t the time to respond the ... (click for more)
