McKamey Adoptables Of The Week Are Ready For Their Forever Home

Friday, July 24, 2020

McKamey Animal Center has two new pets looking for their forever homes this week.

Officials said, "Meet Barbas and Twister:

"Barbas is a true hound dog. He loves adventures where he can smell every blade of grass and will also need a yard with a tall fence and some supervision to make sure his nose doesn't lead him astray. Barbas is getting training with Good Citizen K9 and comes with a free 1:1 session for his new furever family. Barbas loves canine friends, but would need to meet his new fur-sibling before going home. Barbas also loves respectful children that know how respect his space when he's done exploring the world. Barbas knows sit, stay, come & fetch, and is eager to learn much more.
 
"Twister, is a beautiful girl who may be shy, but she is very loving. She is usually in her kennel rolling around for love. She lived with other cats before and her previous owner says they all got along. Twister is about two years old. If you do have other pets at home, remember to go slow and use caution when introducing unfamiliar animals.

Leave C.E. James Monument And Park Alone - And Response (4)

The recent controversy over the monument to our town's founder, C.E. James, is more than a completely unnecessary and avoidable waste of time and possibly money - it is contrived and downright silly. Race-based restrictions on residential real estate sales weren't just common a century ago, they were universal in both the North and South. Such "red-lining" didn't start to die out ...

Roy Exum: Laughing With Jim Murray

When I was in high school, I would love it when the “Newspapers in Education” would roll around once a week. The Chattanooga Times was a real Godsend because it offered me something interesting to read during class and, man, I would pounce on the paper. I would immediately find the syndicated columnist, Jim Murray, and revel in his every word. He was - and this I believe to this ... (click for more)
