Contribute To The Signal Mountain Town Employee Christmas Fund

Monday, December 3, 2018

Much of the appeal of our town is due to the efforts of our town employees, who make and keep our town the way it is. Whether hot or cold, wet or dry, we expect our town employees to be on the job, and rightfully so. They are loyal, dependable and efficient as they go about their duties.

We feel that at this time of year, it is particularly appropriate to express our thanks to our town employees; most of them have worked for the town for many years. Neither the town council nor the town manager shares in the proceeds of this effort. This fund benefits employees working in the following departments: water and sewer; parks and recreation; leaf and brush pickup; garbage service; library service; administrative service and other town functions. The “Police and Fire Christmas Fund” is separate from this fund.

Won’t you join in showing our appreciation by making a contribution to the town employees Christmas Fund? Please mail checks to 111 Ridgeway Ave., Signal Mtn , TN 37377 or drop them by the Town Hall.

Thank you and may you and yours have a safe and happy Christmas and New Year.

Roy Exum: VW Needs Big Repairs

The banner headline on Monday morning read, “Gov. Lee, top Republicans celebrate failed UAW bid to unionize Volkswagen,” and that’s the second-worst thing that the headline could have said. The worst, of course, is if the UAW had won, and the Detroit-based union that lost 35,000 members last year would be revived -- breaking a hole into the tight wall of foreign-owned auto assembly ...
