presstalk 671-TALK

• Yes. In regards to the person who was upset because they could not purchase vegetables from the Renaissance market at Dixie Lee, you sound like the people who came to my garage sale. You know, when people post a time, as Renaissance does at 9 a.m., and as I did at 8 a.m. for my garage sale, that is the time they mean for it to be open. I received obscene comments and obscene gestures because I wasn’t ready at 8 a.m. People like you need to get a life and abide by the rules that people make. It would be a better, better world.

• Via e-mail: I just wanted to remind everyone to keep a watchful eye as we begin the Christmas shopping season. I stopped a young man today from scamming an older lady (70ish) in front of Hobby Lobby Turkey Creek. He was [in need of] help changing a tire and needed a tire iron. He was carrying a silver clipboard. I threatened him with the police if he did not leave this lady alone. He went to the next person, but left as soon as he saw me watching him. I did send a message in to the store for the manager to call the police.

• Congratulations to all the Farragut teams for their stellar performances during the volleyball, soccer and football regular seasons. All the teams made it to the state playoffs. Football playoffs begin Friday night and soccer began Wednesday night. Come out and support our teams.

• 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• Libelous comments will not be published.

• Malicious comments will not be published.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.

• Written comments should be limited to about 100 words.

• Names of individuals or businesses mentioned in the call may not be published (including public figures and officials) depending on the issue.

• Comments mentioning names of public figures, not issue related, will be published as a “Letter to the Editor” and must be signed.

• 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 and written comments with more than 100 words may be omitted, but the basic message of the call or e-mail 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.
