Wish someone would look into the working conditions at the Enterprise South Amazon establishment. Also, why they've had such a huge turnover in the initial crews that were hired in late September. Several weeks after hiring started, Amazon had a meeting with all the employees and offered anyone who would be willing to quit a $1,000 with the stipulation they could never work for Amazon again. I think some of the former employees need to be interviewed before Tennessee invests a lot more money into bringing more Amazon plants into the state.
I live in Soddy-Daisy. Our fire department is totally volunteer. We don't have to pay a yearly fee for fire service. The firefighters should have tried to put the fire out and then worry about collecting the $75. When you are involved in an accident and an ambulance is called - the ambulance driver doesn't collect the charge up front. They take you to the nearest medical facility and then invoices you for the charge. And for all of you who are critical because they didn't pay the fee, some people have a very difficult time putting food on their tables, clothes on their back, and gas in their vehicles. Having to 'cough up' $75 might be as difficult for them as it would be to come up with $1,000,000 for most. If there is a fund set up to help this family, I'd like to contribute.
Mr. Flessner and others have been misrepresenting the winning performance payout for years. The 'average/typical' employee is not getting anywhere near $8,300. In order to receive the $8,300, the average/typical employee would have a salary way over $100,000. A custodian's portion - if he received 5% - would only be a little over $1,000. My business unit isn't entitled to 5%, so my bonus is around $2,250. Also, how odd that Kilgore gave some rather low grades to various TVA departments, yet gets over $2 million in bonus money. Shouldn't he be held accountable for the low grades - specifically Nuclear - who he gave a 'D' grade.
I think the bottom line is: Does he live on Signal Mountain or in the Red Bank area? If not, then he shouldn't be allowed to play for Signal Mountain. When will 'football' mentality be eradicated and academic integrity be promoted. You go to school - whether secondary or college - for an EDUCATION - not to play sports. Unfortunately you don't have to be smart to play sports - if that were the case there wouldn't be enough students eligible to make a team.
I work in the nuclear industry and have to go through two full-body scanners every day that I go to work. I don't understand why people are so against this screening process. If it means boarding a safer airplane than I don't care what type of screening is required. All of you naysayers would feel the same way if it had been you onboard one of the planes that crashed on September 11, 2001 or if one of your family members had been on one. When you choose air as your mode of transportation, you know before hand what the requirement for boarding the plane is - if you don't like it, simply don't fly.
Rolando - every time you respond to an article regarding Gail you are only exposing your stupidity and ignornance more to the readers. You need to shut up while most of us are still feeling sorry for your lack of sensitivity and intelligence. Keep it up and we'll all realize you really are just a big red-neck butthole.
To begin with, obviously 'inquiringmind' and 'astropig' are men who probably thinks a cheating husband has every right to do whatever he wants once the wife comes up missing. If my sister disappeared and her husband waited two days before notifying anyone, and the police had been called to her home for domestic abuse allegations, and he was cheating on her with a co-worker - then not only would I be seeking court protection for her assets, but also for the children. If it had been my husband who went missing, I'd gladly allow the police and anyone else into my home, onto my property, etc., to search - hoping they could find something to lead to his whereabouts. There is no way I believe Gail left on her own and has stayed away on her own. I hope Lee and Bryan don't end up ruining their good reputation by representing this man.
Bryan Hoss has a very promising career in Chattanooga and up until this point seems to have a high degree of intelligence. If I was Bryan, I'd be distancing myself from this client.
TVA has offered Hamilton County Emergency Management agencies the use of their emergency sirens that are located within a ten mile radius of the nuclear sites for warning of severe weather. Bill Title, Emergency Management Chief, declined the use of the sirens because he felt the citizens would be 'confused' - we wouldn't be able to tell the difference between the warning for severe weather and the warning for a radiological emergency. I'm a citizen of Hamilton County and live within the ten mile radius of a nuclear plant. If my weather radio and local news media is telling me I'm under a tornado warning and I look outside to see weather conditions favorable for a tornado - I think if I heard the siren near my home go off, I'd think someone was telling me a tornado had been spotted, as opposed to the nuclear plant had an emergency. Upon hearing the sirens, we are instructed to turn to a local media outlet for further instructions. If I'm already watching the television and the newscaster is reporting the threat of a tornado in my area, I'm not stupid - I'd immediately think the siren's alarm was due to a tornado being sighted and I needed to seek cover.
This is definitely poor reporting. Every journalist knows the rule of the 5 Ws: Who, What, Where, When, and Why. What was false about his statement? Did he measure them too long? Were they measured too short? Or did he not measure them at all? Were the cables even installed? If you are going to print accusations about someone, you owe them the courteous of good reporting regarding the alleged incident. I've noticed in the last several months the reporting at the Times Free Press has gotten rather sloppy. This is just another example.
