A job so I can pay my bills again! And, if there is time, the Top Gear Board Game.
"You right out attacked the doings of the school without backing your information."
You outright attack us without listening to what we are saying. I didn't just "hear" about things that went on in the 80s and 90s, I lived them. But you would know that if you read what I said.
"Temple could spend countless hours recording amounts of time and valuable resources they have added to this community."
So why can't you give us ten minutes and list a few of the things you know about? I'd like to hear about them. They have been missed by the news outlets I use. It might help me have a better view of what this fine school (I never once said it was a bad school, I said they missed opportunities) has done for the community it inhabits.
"If you're not involved in the school or just like to rant and rave about what you remember people were saying in the 80's, then you have no need to post on here."
WOW! I'm speaking to one of the fabled moderators!?! It's such an honor to be told what I can and can not say or think or have opinions about! As long as I don't break the TFP's rules for posting, I'll keep posting what I want to say thank you very much.
As I said, Tennessee Temple is a good school. I know many graduates who are fine people and are a credit to this area and the school itself. It is fulfilling it's mission, which is on their website here: http://www.tntemple.edu/mission-statement (See blindmouses, it isn't that hard) every day. I just said they missed opportunities to do more. If I am in error, prove it to me. Don't tell me to hush. It makes me and the rest of the people reading this not take you seriously.
The St. Andrew's Center building, the former St. Andrew's United Methodist Church, serves many purposes in support of Highland Park and offers many services which were not available until it opened. As a lifelong resident of the area, I remember Highland Park in the 80s and 90s. I remember Tennessee Temple being one of the biggest landlords in the area. And I remember how those properties looked. I remember Temple being called "The Death Star" by local residents.
I respect what Temple is trying to do. Anything that improves this community is wonderful. But they also have missed many opportunities through the years that might have slowed, if not stopped the decline of a beautiful neighborhood.
And since the picture that started this has been removed, my original reason for posting has now been rendered moot.
That's the St. Andrew's Center in the picture. They are not affiliated with Tennessee Temple at all. Chattanooga State has offices there. And they've done more good in the community than Temple ever dreamed of doing.

I believe that is the body farm.
