presstalk 671-TALK


• Editorial freedom is a wonderful concept, but it does come with its responsibilities. With that in mind, the farragutpress has developed policies that will be followed regarding the publication of presstalk comments:

• Libelous comments will not be published.

• Malicious comments will not be published.

• Comments will remain anonymous.

• Recorded comments will be limited to 30 seconds.

• Names of individuals or businesses mentioned in the call will not be published (including public figures and officials).

• Comments mentioning names of public figures will be published as a “Letter to the Editor” and must be signed.

• The farragutpress reserves the right not to publish any comment for any reason.

• Because of space limitations, not every comment will be published. Also, portions of the 30-second message may be omitted, but the basic message of the call will remain intact.

• Vulgar language will not be printed.

That’s it. The forum is open for comments regarding anything you have on your mind — local politics, world affairs, sports, religion, community affairs, city-county unification or anything else.


• A year or so ago, the judge in Atlanta was shot and killed by a prisoner that got a guard’s gun. Recently … a disgruntled husband shot sniper-style a judge through his chamber window because of the decision he made concerning their divorce, he and his wife. I’m reminded that the judges seem to feel like they have the power greater than God as far as ruling people’s lives. But our society is getting fed up with it. If you’re going to be judged by your peers, that’s fine. But an individual judge does not have the right to pass judgment. Therefore, I can only say that I was pleased to hear the

outcome.

• I just wanted to thank the farragutpress for putting the Photo and Imaging Contest in the paper, and wanted to also ask if one day we won’t have the entire thing in color? I think it kinda takes away when all photos inside of it are in black and white. I wanted to see if it would be possible, or if you needed to get a sponsor for it?

• I want to thank [a local radio station] for coming back. After all, us old people, the senior citizens, started rock ’n roll, and we do appreciate the music. Keep it up.

• This is an open message to all government officials, [Tennessee Department of Transportation], the town of Farragut and anyone in power. According to the people who have called into presstalk, a roundabout at Northshore and Concord Road is a very unpopular idea. Most people have been calling for a stop sign or a traffic light instead. I am respectfully asking you to listen to the citizens of Farragut and Knoxville and reconsider a roundabout. Do not make the same mistake the planning commission, development companies and officials made when they refused to consider residents living near Williford Subdivision and Northshore Town Center. Listen to people, after all we are still a democracy.

• Since First Utility [District] came out with its rules about watering, I am wondering why that doesn’t apply to businesses? It appears that some are running their irrigation systems every day and some even twice a day. If Farragut residents have to lose their yards to the heat, then businesses should have to suffer too.
