I Highly Recommend "Over There" In North Chattanooga

Thursday, November 21, 2013 - by Donna Gaither King

There is a new restaurant in North Chattanooga, I'm old school so I haven't started calling it North Shore yet. The restaurant is called "Over There" - kinda tucked away in a secluded area on Summerville Road.

It's real easy to find though - from Cherokee Boulevard you just turn between Quality Tire and the old Loft building. It's an awesome building with a deck on the side for warm-weather dining.

It's home-style cooking with daily specials. But they do have steak and seafood on the menu as well. Their shrimp is huge and the catfish is better than anywhere around here.

I'm not much of a drinker but I noticed the taps on the wall. They have 24 different types of beer on tap.

They are open for lunch and dinner, but you can order breakfast any time of the day.

The owner is always around making sure everyone is pleased. His name is John Meeks - a lifelong resident of Chattanooga and Signal Mountain.

I recommend "Over There" highly.

Only 2 Bradley County Commissioners Support 30-Cent Wheel Tax

After a lengthy debate, only two members of the Bradley County Commission voted in favor of a 30-cent wheel tax on Monday night. The measure needed 10 votes to pass. Several commissioners said a wheel tax would have certainly brought on a petition for a referendum and then defeat at the polls. Commissioner Jeff Yarber said the last wheel tax lost by 70 percent in a referendum. ... (click for more)

Agent Says Drug-Selling Traffic Was So Brisk Outside Brainerd Pill Mill That A Guard Was Necessary

An IRS agent testified Monday that so much drug peddling was going on outside a Brainerd "pill mill" that the owner had to hire a security guard.

Dr. King Wouldn't Approve Of The Mayhem In Baltimore

I am mostly certain that Dr. King never meant for this kind of violence to happen.  I don't recall any of the protests he led not being peaceful.  He would most definitely not approve of people burning, looting, the complete and utter unnecessary mayhem, or anything like what happened in Baltimore. Do you really believe Dr. King would condone 8, 10, 12-year-old children ... (click for more)

Roy Exum: Why The Lynching Stopped

Over the weekend I became fascinated by Milwaukee County Sheriff David Clarke, and yesterday I devoted my Monday opinion piece to the fact this black man, who for 25 years was a cop in Milwaukee and who is now in his fourth term as the sheriff, believes the arrest of six Baltimore police is “a miscarriage of justice.” The more I read and researched Sheriff Clarke, the more I ...
