Not Everyone In District 7 Condones The Recall

Wednesday, February 19, 2014

Glad to see Councilman Anderson taking a stand. I believe if a poll were taken of District 7 voters, the vast majority would say they don't condone the recall. A few outside busy bodies cuddled up to a few inside desperate(s) and created chaos many inside don't yet realize they will come to regret.  And the he said/she said mess is just that...a mess. The elders always said: Be wary of dogs that bring bones. They're just as apt to carry away some bones too. That means, people who bring gossip are just as likely to take gossip away. Their goal is to create chaos and mayhem. 

Young people have been killing one another in many of these areas for decades and as far back as I can remember. Even when there were two black guys over the district. In fact the entire time those two black guys were over the district young people were killing one another. So why expect the lone white guy to work miracles when he's been in office less than a year the two black guys could never accomplish the entire time they were over the district? And what safer place can be created for young people to go than in their own home? Wasn't the 13-year-old allegedly killed in his own home while answering the door? The excuse, and I mean excuse and not reason, for the recall doesn't fly. 

I think the re-callers here need to take a step back and re-evaluate where they really stand, what's realistic and who's really trying to control them and why. What's taking place with the recall is certainly not in their best interest and I sense it will come back to haunt in ways many can never imagine. History is your friend. Never shy away from, ignore or pretend it never happened. 

There are more mature ways to settle ones differences than angrily going off the deep and blindly striking out. Plus, when you're in a rage, you make no sense whatsoever. When anger is involved you don't think rationally or logically. If you believe something insulting or ego deflating was said, then get all parties together, even the one(s) who brought the gossip boen and air those grievances in an intelligent fashion. I also guarantee you'll get to the truth and learn who your real friends are. Trying do carry out a payback based on someone bringing gossip bones about what another person allegedly said will only wrap around to payback the paybacker(s).

Owls Score Late To Knock Off Columbia Academy 5-3

Every sermon Ooltewah coach Brian Hitchcox preaches from his baseball pulpit will at some point stresses defense. After Friday’s five-error effort in its own Ooltewah Invitational at A.C. “Bud” Ball Field, Hitchcox was probably going to be delivering a fire and brimstone speech to his baseball team. Despite the sloppy fielding – and throwing the ball around the yard and ... (click for more)
