Freedom Fountain Park

I am a member of the Viet Nam era and I take personal offense to that fountain having been removed. I lost many friends and loved ones those years while they served my country. That fountain, memorial should be RETURNED and RESTORED immediately so as to show how much we appreciate the men and women who served in South East Asia during that terrible conflict. SHAME on the people who REMOVED that memorial while giving no regard to all the loved ones we lost all those years ago!!!!  (Oct 14, 2013 | post #7)

Decherd on the Move

So now we are living in 5 Sept when last night's meeting voted down Decherd's proposed growth plan. So what happens next? When will Decherd officials be allowed to reopen our growth plan? In your best judgment and opinion, why did Decherd's plan fail? This is very confusing to me. May I please ask you to explain that action to all of us?  (Sep 5, 2013 | post #9)

When will the $10 SC be removed from Decherd water works invoices? Wasn't that SC projected to last only 3 yrs during duration of that loan's repayment? Wasn't that '07 or '08? Shouldn't there be enough money in that 'special fund' balance to satisfy that old loan by now and end the SC?  (Sep 1, 2013 | post #7)

Thank you for your reply. Does our city require random drug tests? I'm not speaking of 'city hall ladies'...but more specifically, those persons who must drive city owned vehicles each day/night during their normal work shifts. I've never seen a city worker driving a city owned vehicle in an inapproperate manner...I'm just asking if Decherd tests workers same as do many other TN cities and counties. It seems a few recent articles in several TN's major newspapers reported that cities recv lower insurance rates when proving they randomly drug test all employees who drive and operate city owned vehicles. Again, thank you for your replies and lets keep everything positive as Decherd begins to GROW again. We need MORE downtown businesses!!! Perhaps we need to change old ordinanes so that some of the 2nd floor bldgs in DOWNTOWN can become LOFT apartments. Then we can draw in a few FOO restaurants, ice cream shops and more parking on side streets. Lets all work together to GROW decherd!!!!  (Aug 28, 2013 | post #5)

Do we have a new employee? I thought City Hall was fully staffed. When I go there to pay water invoices or city taxes, those ladies are always kind and helpful. You can't ask for a better group of ladies to work with when paying invoices or simply asking a question. Who is the new employee you are speaking about?  (Aug 27, 2013 | post #2)

to Winchester Citizen: Thank you!!! Your post was very informative and I appreciate the time you spent posting that info. That was very kind of you. Metro Committee? Is that when several of our cities/townships gave thought to adopting a METRO style government opposed to County and individual style 'city government' ? Isn't that the same time the term 'tiny town laws' was coined? When serving on that committee, what were your thoughts regarding METRO government vs county/city government? Do you mind telling us how you voted and what were your reasons for a YES or NO vote regarding Metro goverance? How often is the growth plan REOPENED? Isn't that normally dictated by the State...about every 10 yrs? Or... when cities request 'reopening' their growth map? Don't cities who petition to 'reopen' their growth plan have to begin FILLing their coffers so as to make future plans to provide 'a plan of services' for all areas in their growth plan in the event those 'new growth' areas are eventually annexed? Wow....if Decherd has plans to eventually annex their proposed 'growth plan' map, then aren't our city taxes going to increase so as to satisfy all the 'plan of services' that will be required in the future? Once again, thank you for your comments...both the old ones and your answ to this new request of information.  (Aug 17, 2013 | post #6)

What's the latest and the final growth plans Decherd expects to add? What happens next? Does Decherd go back to the county with a new map? Then what comes after that? Wow....this is getting very confusing. Do all cities go through so many changes everytime the growth plan reopens? Would someone who understands all the 'growth plan' operations explain it to us?  (Aug 15, 2013 | post #4)

To Amazed 2. Any person with proper social skills would have made a prompt apology. Something like "I didn't intend to be insulting but apologize for offending you. 2 a. New Blood said much the same, yet Concerned turned those words around and went off on a tangent. 3. This would have given Concerned the opportunity to graciously accept and the matter would have been resolved on a positive note. 3 a. Again, Concerned went whack-a-do when answering the post made by New Blood. As you read, that person said he or she had not meant the printed words to sound insulting. 4. NewBlood evidently lacks these very basic social skills and responded with the "ASSumed " remark and the "bubble" post. 4 a. Concerned has been blasting anyone and everyone who posted on this thread since day ONE. What is a BUBBLE post? 5. By responding as they have it appears that NewBlood did intend to be insulting and has established an appearance of arrogance. 5 a. Wrong. Reread all the several comments from both. You will see New Blood was being generious in his or her posts to Concerned. It is Concerned who usually shows high levels of haughtiness. 6. It is always good to engage in self improvement. I suggest that it would serve NewBlood well to go to the library and read a couple of good books about social skills. This can't be the only case of them backing themselves into this sort of social corner. 6 a. "Concerned " might find a class in 'reading comprehension' valuable. That way, he or she will be able to ascertain exactly who stated they lived in various communities instead of making ASSuMptIOns. After having reread all Concerned has posted, it might be wise for Concerned to visit a therapist asking for help dealing with anger management. After 3 or 4 sessions and maybe a few yoga classes, I'd bet the problem will be gone quick as a bunny. 7.......Now, as MORE FACTS stated, its time to get back on TOPIC on TOPIX.  (Aug 9, 2013 | post #27)

I guess I'd try to remember what I've done for the various communities where we lived, then answer.  (Aug 8, 2013 | post #17)

Why would you say that a 'new resident' was asking questions that are none of that person's business? Don't all our cities still live by and operate on the OPEN RECORDS/sunshine laws?  (Aug 7, 2013 | post #13)

Winchester council election

You are correct. Since I don't reside or own property in Winchester, I did not vote in that city election.  (Aug 2, 2013 | post #59)

Winchester council election

CONGRATS to Gene Snead!!!! Now get out on the roads and on the phone to ask all who supported and voted for you, your constituents, what they want to see improved in Winchester. Pity we can't expect the same kind of actions from our returning Decherd officials.  (Aug 1, 2013 | post #57)
