Re: Anita Ebersole Withdraws from City Court Clerk Appointment:

Her withdrawal decision shows she has a lot more class than Ron, or Ms. Ladd.

Audacity knows no bounds in Chattanooga mayoral politics. For Mayor Littlefield to verbally describe two tenured sitting judges of being "unprofessional" has to be the height of psychological projection (the tendency for one to project their frailties upon another individual) which is typical behavior for our outgoing mayor.

Such a pity his quasi-nepotistic appointment of Anita Ebersole to Clerk of the Court was questioned by Judges Bean and Paty and cut short by Ms. Ebersole's mature and immediate recognition of an unwinnable appointment early-on. Then again...too many times things like this get inflated attention to obscure some other nefarious sleight-of-hand Ron has going on.

Never has a Chattanooga mayor disappointed so many, so many times, so often. Ron Littlefield leaves a fractional legacy of myopic favoritism and even more short-sighted legislation. From unwanted annexes (still unfulfilled with promised city services) to short-cutting road imrovement with "crack-seal," Ron Littlefield will have to consider seriously whether putting down "Mayor of Chattanooga" will add a positive spin to his resume. This easily-forgettable politician will be just that. The Jimmy Carter of Chattanooga.

I agree that Anita Ebersole has more class than her boss or any of his stooges sitting aloft on their council perch.

"Rustler Ron" aided by his ship of fools berate our city judges without giving them the courtesy of a rebuttal. It's rude and classless, especially after having just been insulted by a mayor that a majority of people wanted recalled. Judge Paty found out that it's either "Rustler's" way or you are persona non grata. To make matters worse, his minions on the City Council go right along with whatever he wants regardless of public opinion, common sense, or decorum.

An election is coming up folks. Let's rid our city of these multi-term council members and try some new blood. There is no way that they could care less about public opinion than these clowns do. Ladd, Rico, and Benson need to go. They always vote for the special interest groups and to heck with the citizens. These people are way too full of themselves, thinking that they answer to no one. They have forgotten that they work for the citizens of Chattanooga and that they are spending our money. I only wish we had a candidate to unseat Berz in the 6th.

Chattanooga's Gun Problem

In the last two months we have seen a number of murders and shootings in the Chattanooga area and for the most part all of the perpetrators have a background, have been arrested and as crazy as it is, for gun related charges. My question for the powers that be is - what are you going to do about this problem? Chattanooga, at least downtown, is a tourist hot spot, tourism ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

Every day, without exception, I find a number of “treats” in my daily dose of email.

Think of it as sort of a “co-op” for my readers to enjoy. When The Saturday Funnies began last summer, it was what I still think is ... (click for more)
