Very glad we are not attending a funeral. No excuse should be exceptable in this incident. The man should be removed permanently from driving any child anywhere. It is hard enough to keep children in school. They should not have to worry about their transportation.

This is heartbreaking. I do not understand why an 18 month old baby and a 3 year old toddler were on an ATV. This accident should have never happened if common sense would have been used. Ithis is so sad.

Lost Champagne/Blonde/Buff medium to long hair Neutered male cat in Normal Park/North Chattanooga area. I believe that someone took him from the sidewalk area around our home. He was supposed to be an inside cat but we could never keep him confined exclusively to our home. He rarely left our yard and at most wandered a very small area around our home. He has been missing since the 19th/20th. He is extremely happy in our home, microchipped (thru McKamey Animal Shelter) and has a best cat friend (Chi-Chi) who is grieving him right now. He belongs to my 6 year old son. He is a very docile cat and in general is not shy. He loves to be rubbed behind his ears or on his belly. He has a stripe and snip on his nose and his two front paws are white. His eyes are rust colored. There is a LARGE reward if found! Please contact Kristin & Carl at 423-715-7399 or 716-1568 carlalanpemberton@gmail.com

I was disturbed at first as well, until I realized that the text is a direct transcription of the verbal description in the video.

I appreciate that WDEF published an article about our Basilica's beautiful windows, but this is very poorly written and obviously unedited. You have to do better than this. Where's the Ombudsman?
