There is nothing nice, friendly, and respectable!!! Thing is, there never was, just back before technology, it was your word against theirs and people gave up the fight easier. Especially when the (their) in question was a "good ole boy" or somebody's brother,cousin, or friend, there was no "getting justice." Now, people are MAD. The Larger alphabet boys are taking out the good ole' boys and people are Loving IT. God is great in the end, but we want something done NOW!!!!

I am right. They took down a good ole boy that hurt me 13 years ago at the age of 15, and he totally got away with it. In May he and several other people were arrested by the TBI.

Go TBI!!!

There really are some great people in this town. I couldn't wait to get back because I love how little old men talk to my child like shes their own grand-daughter. I love how people always wave, even at redlights. I love how people hold the door for you when you're walking in some place. Its big enough that you can be at peace, while its still small enough that people know whats going on.

Thats an awesome idea. Union County is a beautiful place. Nature everywhere. While looking for a house to rent, every landlord that I met with had illegal leases. So, I called the courthouse trying to find someone to tell about it. The people I talked to said, "What do you want me to do about it?" I said, "Are you serious?? If you can't call the courthouse to uphold the law,who will??" Crooks, lazy people. Sure, theres bad people everywhere, but its worse when they are in charge. What about term limits? Why are the names in the paper the exact same ones that I have been hearing my entire life?? Any Problem I have ever had, whether it was bookwork, mechanics, or something job related, when I couldn't work it out, I thought, "I need a fresh set of eyes." Same as Union County.How could they not know about the federal funding deadline? That is their job.(Cause they sure don't do much else!) LOL

Sorry Bubba, the ENTIRE county. I read the newsleader all the time. The girl that does most of the writing, done a story about how she was consistently denied access to public records. I Wish there was a community center for our youth. We have stuff for little kids, but once they reach highschool, they have to be in organized sports or nothing. I'd say only 10% of the highschool population play sports. Alot of young people have died locally due to drug abuse. I don't want to see the county over developed and over populated like Gatlinburg. But I would love to see something just for teens where no adults are allowed(except chaperones). The old pool hall was fun, but adults and teens mixing just is not safe.

You got that right. Stop judging and see the good that is in UC. There are plenty of good people.

If you want to see the good in UC. Get involved. There are lots of good people and good things happening in this county. When we get media coverage about a story in this county, they go find some person who can't afford dental work (toothless) and interview them about a topic they are covering. The person is usually not informed about the subject being covered and makes the county look like only idiots live here. We live in a place that education was never thought of as an important part of growing up. That is changing slowly. We still have these people running our government unfortunately. Until they open their eyes at the importance of education we won't have industry coming to this county. Education is on top of the list when a company is thinking about coming here and setting up a business. We have the work force but we don't have the Educational System. We are working on that as best as County Commission will allow. I love living in Union County.

True about the media. The media is no longer an actual outlet for news. I stopped wasting my time watching the news a few years ago. It is politically leaning, biased, opinionated, not many facts get stated. I have heard people talk about ways to save money from the welfare recipients. Granted, there needs to be control there. What about foreign wars? I am for making money, but Wal-Mart, for instance, their owners make the Forbes top 20 list every year.They continue building and growing. What about the mass multitude of employees paid minimum wage who work 40 hours a week and still have to have tenncare and foodstamps? How much is Wal-mart costing Tennessee, really? Not to mention the prices continue to rise, while wages remain at the lowest low, and the quality of the products, well there is no quality at wal-mart. The recall board is filled with different products almost daily.

Keep telling yourself that! It can happen anywhere, to any school, anytime! AS long as bullying is alive,which will be as long as prepubescent teens exist, there will be kids who don't fit in. As long as parents have that ignorant, it can't happen here attitude, it will continue. Columbine probably felt just as SAFE before the shooting. As long as you have adults like yourself, that turn the other cheek ignoring reality, shaping the minds of our youth, all problems will continue worsening. How many of these shooters were thought to be from 'good', not poor, middle class suburbia? Several! The world is Crazy, I am sure it always has been, but with the media outlets we have today, its always in our face. My kid can't even watch Dora on youtube without hitting "DORA; on heroin." Not to mention, all the people, in everyday real life, and all their Habits. YOU BETTER RECOGNIZE!

As for this County AND everywhere........ When they took away Parents Rights on raising their child and gave the rights to the children, that is one problem with the good ole USA, but the worst thing they did was taking PRAYER out of our schools!!!!!!!!!! Prayer was always in school as I grew up and the a$$ whippings I got taught me right from wrong and made me respect my Parents!! People may not agree with me, BUT, theres a MAJOR difference between whipping a child and beating a child. My parents whipped me, and today as I look back, I respect the way they raised me and it made me a better person. As for Prayer in school as I grew up, it made me a even better person and gave me a heart of gold. May God bless you all.

We can't change all that. I'm planning on working however much it takes just to put my child in private school. I don't want her being DUMBED down because of 'No Child left Behind."
