There is nothing good about Knoxville or the state of Tennessee at that!

OK being a big Murvle kid who loves OUR (Murvle) downtown I do have some fav. Knox spots.

As a kid that alley where the shoe shops were behind Millers, the smells and the people were outstanding.

Also in the olden times, The S&W. It was something to carry our own tray (Daddy didn't want to tip!) and then for me to go get him coffee.

Today, downtown Knoxville on a cool late SUNDAY afternoon. No kidding it is quiet, the shawdows are really beautiful and it blends what was and what is going to be.

Oh and for those who wanta move I agree with them, get out! That way you won't be in my way
when I tailgate on Saturday before I join 107 thousand of my new best friends to watch us beat Florida.

I'm going to generalize, but living in Jefferson County there are many things I appreciate in Knoxville. Such as the restaurants, malls and concerts. My favorite place? My grandparents lived in the same house on Cherry St. until they both passed and my grandfather owned an office supply store. Every summer before school started, they would take us to the store and let us pick out all of our school supplies.:0)

Thanks Baily for providing this refreshing new topix.

I'm a native of East Tennessee and have traveled all over this country and to 8 foreign countries. I love to travel, but in my opinion,the grass is greener and the skies are bluer over East Tennessee. Dorothy was right when she clicked her heels and proclaimed, "There's no place like home".

I've lived in Knoxville for the past 21 years and am proud of this town. Cove Park is one of my favorite places to visit. It used to be Farragut's best kept secret, but that secret is out and the park is well attended just about every day.

I also love the view of the Sunsphere, especially at sundown. I have so many fond memories of the 1982 World's Fair. Seeing at that landmark brings back some of the excitement I felt back then when I used my season's pass to visit in as often as possible.

My sympathys to those sour pusses who don't have anything nice to say about Knoxville. There are other towns out there where they could go and live, perhaps finding something nice to say about their new hometown.

Are you going to move into a Walgreen's commercial where everything is perfect??? Give me a town that doesn't have at least two things you just mentioned.

The grass is green, BUT the sky is not blue especially over the mountains because of the polution from cars and trucks because you stupid people do not believe in emission testing on ALL cars and trucks on the roads here nor do you want a safety inspection on everything that is on the roads either. Where i lived, i'd say 90% of these cars, trucks, SUV's etc would fail the state inspection.

I agree, some of the cars i see on the road here are just a joke! they really need to start inspecting cars. I heard that Knoxville is the worst city in the country for asthma and things like that. I don't know if that is true, i heard it from an southerner, but that is what i heard!

Yes Yankee, it is true. Tennessee is also in the top 3 list on poverty, polution, bad schools, high food tax, asthma, etc.

Bailey, i am not naming the city i moved here from, but lets say that if this mess with the Knox county Government happened where i lived, ALL of them would be thrown out off office. They would NOT have spending cards to begin with.
The schools was better and you never heard anything on the news that the city had a shortfall on money to build new schools, the colleges was also better and the state funded them MUCH better than here and the 2 where i lived are #1 and # 3 in the nation for teaching and graduation. As far as the trash and debris on the roads, where i lived they had inmates from the jails out EVERYDAY on a chain gang picking up trash and mowing the grass in the middle of the roads. The inmates had no choice to do it or not there, here this government and inmates are so lazy and all they do is sit in jail passing gass and getting fatter watching TV and all that they could not crawl out of a hole.
There is nothing perfect in this world but this is the most repressing low class places me and my family have ever lived in.
