It is a sad day when a family is not notified that their son was killed in a car accident. That the family spends 2 days looking for him and then found out from someone else that he had been killed. What has happened to the police or who ever is in charge of notifying the next of kin. I am sicked to the core that this family was treated this way. I pray that the family of Tony find some peace in their time of grief to for give them. My prayers go out to the whole family.

This story was written extremely poor. Is this the best they have at CBS Chattanooga? This was difficult to read due to the authors poor grammar. I don't claim to be proficient in the art of writing, but I can do better than this! C'mon Man!!

In 1938, Popular Mechanics published an article on industrial hemp, titled, "New Billion Dollar Crop". In 1938, you could buy a brand-new luxury car, a 1938 Chrysler Royal Brougham for all of $975! So what does a "good" Chrysler cost today? Do the math! And that does not include all of the new ways to use hemp that have been discovered during the last 75 years or so!
