Before you let Kyle Williams completely off the hook you need to look at the whole game just not OT. In the 4th quarter he let the ball hit his knee on a kickoff. Then, instead of trying to fall on ball and maintain possesion he acted like did not know he had been hit. Result of his miscue/error was Giants retained ball and scored a field goal which resulted in OT. Then add the fumble in OT and he gave the game to the NY Giants.
Sangaree, I must speak out for adoption. I am an adopted child from a family of multiple adopted children. My husband was adopted also after years in foster care/orphanages. I also have friends who have adopted and been adopted.For every horror story of adopted children being abused and murdered there are hundreds of blessed children who were adopted. Please don't throw us under the bias bus too. There are wonderful options available to parents overwhelmed by children. You do not have to stay in abusive relationships, nor are you excused when you abuse. Just a thought!
Papergirl77. More recent updates of this tragedy include police interview of the mother who stated the boyfriend had beaten her children before this incident. She still chose to leave these two precious boys with a 21 year old "boyfriend". A man with a history of violence, drug use, and theft. She will now have to spend the rest of her life with the consequences of her bad choice in a mate. I pray for the young 3 year old who has liver damage as a result of this tragedy, that he may recover fully and find a loving home.
Jim Brexler, nor any head of a non-profit, tax payer institution should be paid 3/4 of a million dollars to NOT work. He quit. Even if he felt they were forcing him out he still resigned. That should end any financial support due him. Hamilton Co. loves to pay for ridiculus contracts, think Jim Scales.There should be no further benefits or monies extended after his final day of employment. Do not forget they will also have to pay who ever takes over as CEO. Erlanger needs a board who can be better stewards of our insurance and tax payer moneies.
Where is truth in reporting in this piece so far. The fact is his contract calls for an additional $185K for 18 months of severance pay and this vote was for only 15 months severance. He will still get over $885K for no work at all. Why is a tax supported Hospital Authority giving this kind of a contract? No wonder our institutions are in such a decline. There are many hard working employees who get minimal raises and no severance pay at Erlanger and do the actual work! This man should be given no severance pay and continued health benefits when the morale of Erlanger employees is so low and in a recession at the expense of taxpayers and patients.
In case you were not paying attention. Mayor Littlefield has been pushing so hard for consolidated government because a new charter would have to be drawn up and he would be eligible to run again as "Mayor" of the county/region. The current rules barring him from a third term as City of Chattanooga Mayor would then be obsolete. He is more cunning than most would even dream of. Bank on it! More people to tax, more revenue to disperse to his cronies.
If Walmart is feeling the crunch of online buying it is about time. They sell inferior products and have poor customer service. In addition, Walmart ran off most "mom and pop" stores years ago. The internet is the way of the future, regardless of taxes collected. Just ask all the book stores, movie stores, etc. There will always be a need for some local stores, but they must make changes to keep up with the 21st century.
Someone should have discussed the funding options with current TEAM director before beginning campaign for extended funding. The director had his own agenda from the onset weeks ago. He was going to pocket the first monies as severance pay and now refuses this money. Need to establish a new charter with a leader concerned for these children NOW. The money will be made available with the right people in charge.
May God be with the family of Sgt. Chapin and with his brothers and sisters in Blue. Thank you for your daily sacrifice.
