presstalk 671-TALK

• The candidate for Farragut alderman who stated in his ad, “I will fight the rezoning of Farragut students to Hardin Valley to the bitter end and beyond” seems to be exhibiting political posturing. Those of us who are solution-based and have been actively involved in the rezoning issue from the very beginning hope for a positive outcome, not “the bitter end” he foresees.

• It sure is nice, and a whole lot safer, driving on to and off of Smith Road and Kingston Pike now that the Weigel’s has been closed. I sure hope the new road design is a lot safer than the last one.

• I just wanted to see if there was anything you could do to have the police reports a little more up-to-date? In today’s paper, March 22, the police reports were the first few weeks of January. I check each week to see if there’s anything happening in my neighborhood and other Farragut locations so I can be more vigilant. And it would be a real service if this was a little more current.

• I wish the sheriff’s office would do something about the people who cut through the Food City parking lot during rush hour in the mornings. They cut through to avoid the traffic light at Kingston Pike and Concord Road and pay no heed to the stop sign by the Wendy’s. I have had more than one zip out in front of me after they ran the stop sign.

• 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• Libelous comments will not be published.

• Malicious comments will not be published.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• Names of individuals or businesses mentioned in the call will not be published (including public figures and officials).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