When my children were little, I took them in with me to get my driver's license and one of the examiners watched them while I did the driving part. It is not that hard if you cannot find a babysitter. Maybe people should have to take parenting classes before they are allowed to have children!

Tried to call this number but no answer. I believe I may have seen this dog on lower river road two days ago. When I passed him, it was where the first guard rails are if you are going away from B and B to Loves. I think there is a White House right before it and a cut out from the trees with power lines. I went back 10 minutes later and did not see him. I have a feeling he may have gone into the woods to the left of the guardrails. I know it is a lot of woods but thought it may help you know where to look. Sorry I couldn't help more.

How is it so hard for a parent to just TAKE THEIR KIDS WITH THEM?! It's not as if she was in a building kids were prohibited! If it was just because she was too lazy to deal with them in a public building, then she should either A- find a sitter B-Don't go anywhere or C-not have kids to begin with! It's that simple! Leave your kids or pets in a hot car and I will reward you with a free busted window!

What is the matter with people? If you don't want ALL the RESPONSIBILITY of children then keep your legs CLOSED or take the pill. Kids don't ask for hardship they are innocent and just want to be loved.

Bound the victim and her husband. So, the husband isn't considered a victim?

As far as I am concerned, this is a great bill! More often than not, people drive with total disrespect knowingly blocking and slowing down traffic because they think that if they go to speed limit then they are abiding the law. Passing lanes are exactly for that, passing slower vehicles. Slower vehicles need to stay to the right! That said, I typically go the speed limit and always stay in the right lane and have total respect for those that need to pass me.

So World War III is about to start and WDEF doesn't show the second half hour of The CBS Evening News in order to talk about Bugtussle Whitfield county and other Bugtussle, GA and Bugtussle, TN meaningless stories for the 20 people that watch you guys stand because standing makes the boring garbage on that show mean more as does standing in front of a thousands of dollars monitor with 2 words on it. Ya know, those thousands spent so we can read a headline of the story you're talking about. As someone who was just a Neisen diary home a couple of months ago and put your 6 PM news in the diary because you were the least objectionable craptacular show calling it's self a news show in Chattanooga, you can count me out as ever being a viewer of any of your Bugtussle local reports again. Of course, you get 100% of the ad revenue for that craptacular show and don't for the National stuff so that's much more important than World War III. I just wonder how Democrats and Republicans alike live with themselves when they're all the exact kind of greedy whores that the people running WDEF are, everybody in what's alleged to be entertainment, news and sports are?
