press talk 671-TALK


• It would be nice if the parishioners of Christ Covenant Presbyterian Church used their parking lot for parking during their Sunday services versus parking in the right-of-way or the clubhouse of Saddleridge subdivision. They have more than enough space, and would get those cars where they belong — in their parking lot.

• So Ron Rochelle is a candidate for alderman, and he thinks the sign ordinances have been relaxed to the point where he is in favor of them. You’ve got to be kidding me? Gander Mountain, Parkside Plaza II are two examples of the wrong way to go with the sign ordinance. It is too relaxed. This is getting out of hand. It’s time to put people in there who will uphold our sign ordinance and get back to the basics of what made Farragut great.

• I’d just like to make a comment about the crossing guard, or whatever you call her, that operates at the schools. I don’t know why the county pays her, she leaves before school is in session in the mornings at the primary school, which causes a back-up at that school. And then in the afternoons in front of the middle and high schools, she’s not there when school lets out. She’s late more often than not. I just think it’s a waste of the county’s money to pay her to do that job.

• 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• Libelous comments will not be published.

• Malicious comments will not be published.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• Names of individuals or businesses mentioned in the call will not be published (including public figures and officials).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