A Gofundme page has been set up for a fourth grade Normal Park School teacher after she was in a car wreck.
 
Bethany Schklar remains in Intensive Care.
 
The two-vehicle accident was at an intersection of Brainerd Road on Monday morning.
 
The county schools had extra counselors at the school.
 
The school web page for Ms.
Schklar says:
 
I was born in a small town in Illinois. (Fun fact: it's where Heath bars and Marathon gas come from!) My parents' job took our family around the world, so I grew up in the Netherlands and Brazil. I attended Hope College in Michigan, and graduated with a degree in Dance Performance and Choreography. I began my career in education at an after school program, and fell in love with it, so I decided to go back to school to become an elementary school teacher.  I moved to Chicago and worked for GEAR UP at Roosevelt University, which is a program that targets inner city youth and focuses on college awareness and readiness. During this time, I also attended classes at Roosevelt, and graduated with my Masters degree in Elementary Education in 2008. I taught 2nd grade Gifted for four years, then moved to Nashville where I taught 2nd grade at an International School. I then moved to Chattanooga, and initially worked at Orchard Knob Elementary before finding Normal Park. I have been a proud member of the NP staff since 2015. I feel fortunate to have found my way to Chattanooga, and NP, and I look forward to another great year here!
 
I'm passionate about teaching, world culture, the arts, and dance. In my spare time, I like to run, read, hike, and plan my family's next adventure.
 
I have a wonderful husband, and an amazing son. I love Diet Coke, pizza, fancy teacher pens, and great jokes.

Good Sports Bar News

Just had dinner Tuesday night at Jonathan's Grille location in Hendersonville, Tn. When in Murfreesboro or Nashville, it's one of my favs. Just a great sports bar concept and menu. So happy to hear the Revelette brothers are bringing their brand (and their pizza night) to the old 212 Market location in downtown Chattanooga. Bring it on! Garry Mac (click for more)

Roy Exum: The Saturday Funnies

As I stood in the checkout line of the Walmart in Tiftonia this week, my newest friend named Harold asked me, “What’s the difference between an outlaw and an in-law. As I searched my mind, Harold responded, “Outlaws are wanted!” I immediately accepted his joke as a good omen. It helps me to remind readers of The Saturday Funnies, I just collect them during the week and pass them ... (click for more)

Red Wolves Suffer First-Ever Loss At David Stanton Field

For the majority of the match, Ronaldo Dumas floated around the pitch, suffocated by the Red Wolves defense for 86 minutes. Rendered invisible, the high-scoring 19 year-old was a ghost, unable to impose his skills on the match. That all changed in the 87th, when Dumas wrangled a Arturo Rodriguez pass away from Chattanooga’s back line, and slotted in a short-range shot to ice the ... (click for more)
