The Chattanooga Area Council of Epsilon Sigma Alpha held their annual installation of officers during a luncheon at the Tea Cottage.  

Past state president Connie Edwards conducted the installation using the theme, “Let the good times roll.”  

ESA ladies are known not only for the hard work and service they provide to local non-profit organizations, but for their humor as well, and no one could dispute its evidence during the installation proceedings, said officials. Officers were presented with various items that signify rolling: a ball (keep the ball rolling) to junior past president Arlene Adams, Delta Chi chapter; a rolling pin to “peacekeeper” parliamentarian Liz Henley, Delta Chi Chapter; a roll of duct tape (it sticks to everything) to treasurer Janice Gallaher, Gamma Chi chapter; a bag of marbles (as in don’t lose your marbles, however, the bag broke and marbles scattered) to secretary Shirley Walker, Alpha Beta chapter; a pair of large, fuzzy, hanging dice (to roll for the presidency in 2015) to vice president Frances Dickerson, Delta Rho chapter; and lastly, a roll of toilet paper (always roll over, never under) to new president Ann Nelson, Delta Chi chapter.

ESA philanthropic efforts include planning, implementing, funding and completing projects to aid local, regional and national non-profit organizations.

Roy Exum: Quick! Arm Our Guards

When I learned last Wednesday that Chattanooga’s leading hospital, in a ridiculous attempt to be more “family friendly,” planned to disarm its security guards. I was aghast but decided to wait for the proper “incident” to illustrate how stupid members of our “free thought society” can sometimes be. It took exactly one week. A bit after midnight on Thursday morning a gunman appeared ... (click for more)
