Miss Hamilton County Ansley Reagan, a community activist and two times Miss Tennessee first runner-up, is featured in the current issue of Fourpoints magazine, a bi-monthly national publication for Miss America Organization contestants and volunteers.

Miss Reagan wrote a three-page article for the magazine’s Spotlight segment discussing her community service endeavors during her three-year involvement with the Miss Tennessee Organization.

She is the founder of Project CARE (Community Alliance for Reaching the Elderly), is the court-appointed guardian for a nursing home resident and a Hamilton County Senior Olympics volunteer.

The Ooltewah resident has won the state Miss America Community Service Award for the last two years. (Miss Southeast Tennessee Stefanie Wittler has won the Miss Tennessee Community Service Award for two years running as well.)

The Lee University graduate and professional harpist also talked about her visit to T.C. Thompson Children’s Hospital, the local Children’s Miracle Network affiliate. CMN became the national platform for the MAO this year and all local, state and national contestants are involved with fundraising for their area CMN hospitals.

Miss Reagan won $22,000 in scholarships during her Miss Tennessee competitive career and never failed to finish out of the top five. As Miss Chattanooga 2005, she was third runner-up and she was first runner-up in 2006 as Miss Cleveland. She also represented the state at the National Sweetheart Pageant in Hoopeston, Ill., the last two years, but has declined a third trip to next month’s contest. She recently became engaged to Shane Unsworth, a financial advisor whom she met while the two were students at Lee.

Fourpoints is not sold on newsstands, but copies can be ordered by calling 1-866-252-7108 or visiting the magazine’s website at www.fourpointsmagazine.com.

MAO officials recently announced that the 2008 pageant will be held on Saturday, Jan. 26, for the third consecutive year at the Planet Hollywood Resort in Las Vegas. The pageant will be televised on their newest network home TLC (Chattanooga Comcast 41). Grace Gore, a doctoral student in audiology at Vanderbilt University, will be representing Tennessee.

The Hamilton County Scholarship Association pageants will be held at Chattanooga State on Oct. 13 and 14.

Pretending Is Dangerous - And Response

I’ve ‘seen some stuff’ in my time. I have followed politics for many years. I’m retired, I’m a realist and a Vietnam veteran, pretty much in that order. I’m not an alarmist or a conspiracy theorist. That said, I have never in my life been so concerned about the future of this Republic. Politics was once a legitimate contest of ideas, put forth by political figures who were sincere, ...

I have taken the position that mandates of any kind that limit personal freedoms are awful.
