Whenever I log in to the Chattanooga Times Free Press ( to see the classified ads), I see a cartoon that insults Republicans. Is this paper trying to say they are liberal democrates who have no intention of conducting themselves like adults but only want to offend and insult those with different beliefs? I thought this was a "news" paper? I see it's just one more outlet for the juvenile.
These two people are possessed by the devil, and yet, Christians will sit back and let their actions take over Chattanooga. Shame on Christian churches and so called Christians. Shame on the tens of thousands of people who let these two weirdos take over the rights of our city government. These two weirdo anti-God butts will have their way because pro-God people will sit back and do nothing. Hey, way to go, Christian churches. Way to go.
It is awful that we have a school system that feels compelled to bus kids away from their local school because that school is a state and federal failure. It shouldn't be the kids who are shipped off or punished. It should be the rotten teachers and rotten principals at these local schools who are bad at their jobs and can't inspire the young. Get rid of the teacher's unions and get some talented individuals in our tax funded schools. Isn't it time to hold these schools accountable when they take our money and fail our kids? Isn't that the real issue here? Furthermore, I don't agree with TSSAA at all. Sports in school are for the kids, not the men living vicariously through these boys. Stealing Signal Mt.'s wins from a bunch of youth is a rotten thing to do. Get rid of the failing teachers, failing schools, and over-the-top sports leaders who can't keep a compassionate perspective concerning our kids. The entire system is a shame on our state. Who exactly won when the TSSAA went on their witch hunt? The kids? Apparently in Tennessee, it isn't the kids that matter.
Love Krystals. Been eating them for decades. As for NOMYTH's comment, it's bread, beef, mustard, pickle, and french fries, or chicken, bread, and mayonaise. Stop being such a drama queen. Love you Krystals.
I should think drug sellers, hustlers and protitutes walking the streets is what creates a bad reputation. I would have thought daily drive-by shootings, and street gangs, and vandalism is what creates a bad reputation. Gee, I would never have guessed the local high school not turning in paper work correctly for one football player would constitute a bad reputation for the entire community. Imagine how backwards in my thinking I've been for so long. HOW DARE SIGNAL MT.! I'm moving to Tunnel Blvd. TODAY, so I can build back up my good name.
Idurham: what gives you the idea that this one student at Signal was an "under achiever"? The facts bear out that there are particular schools that are failures and that any child attending one of these failing schools is legally allowed to attend another school that IS within standards. Even the Almighty Red Bank had to send out letter to parents stating that they had "failed" federal standards, and the kids were allowed to attend other schools. You obviously don't know what the hell you're talking about. As for Red Bank, Red Bank was always a school of Excellence until they started busing kids in from the projects, then suddeny, after decades of being above par, suddenly, they are having to offer to bus kids away just so they could get a decent education all because "too few are graduating." What does that tell you? That schools like Red Bank and others are suffering for bussing kids in that don't give a dman about life. That's what.
why don't they investigate East Hamilton's coaches? Ted Gatewood pulled his old Red Bank pal, Jeff Fairbanks in to coach the Freshman football team, and they put Jeff Fairbanks in to teach the Bible class soley so he could coach with Ted Gatewood. But Jeff Fairbanks did not have a teaching certificate. He taught all of last year without a teaching license, just so he could be a coach with his buddy. Furthermore, when they put him in to teach the Bible class, the principal was warned that he was then having an affair. The principal told the informant to never write her again on the matter. She covered it up. She allowed Fairbanks to teach bible while cheating on his family and with NO teaching certificate, all so he could coach with Ted Gatewood. Yeah, let's just have a good hard look at these other schools!
Oh, and the good-o-boys who weasled in the back way to try and hurt Signal Mt.High students with accusations to the TSSAA, how weak. You're weak. You're weak, and snivelly, and you're cowards. These high school boys on Signal have bigger packages than you, because they get out on the field and win, while you fester in jealousy, curled up licking your good-o-boys' wounds. You're sickening. Grown men acting like little, angry girls. You're not men. No matter what happens from here on out, coaches on these other teams have proven what they are. Weak.
If you aren't a part of Signal Mt., none of this is any of your business. The fact that so many desire to gloat and sneer at Signal Mt High, when you don't really know the facts of the case close up, shows you're just mean spirited little girls looking for an opportunity to spew out your hate. Little, spiteful girls is all you are.
