Written on In Gubernatorial Race, Mayors or Millionaires?:

Frank Cagle....I think it's a trend with certain individuals with too much money who start looking for new things to buy. Especially without price tags. Oh wait, I forgot elections tend to go to the highest bidder. I wonder if they too get as much of a rush as those of us that win on Ebay!

Written on Haslam Stalls, Leaves the High Road; Wamp’s Attacks Are Benefiting Ramsey:

Why in the world would Tennesseans want the state ran by Haslam? For some reason Obama comes to mind when I think of the Haslam campaign! I'M SICK OF ELECTIONS BEING BOUGHT!! Is he bored with Pilot & the TN Smokies? Now he wants to add Governor to his list of achievements? Not with my vote!!

Written on YMCA Branches Out In Farragut:

YOU'VE GOT TO BE KIDDING ME!! About 70% of memberships at the Davis YMCA receive scholarships?? Give me a break!! Every time I drive by this place I see fancy cars/SUVs. Most of the homes on that side of Northshore are in the upper bracket. Yes, it's quite affluent and I'm curious what the household income is for a mere 5 mile radius of this Y. How dare people that are living such an affluent life use scholarship money! Oh, I forgot...it's those people who've over paid for their 4,000+ sf home, over paid for their vehicles, can't afford to take their boats out on the lake every weekend, can't find work, and are on Food Stamps. Did I mention that the competitive sports that their kids are playing in is probably busting them too? Or maybe the media packages for their Apple phones is doing them in every month as well. What is wrong with this picture? This article makes me want to gag. I'm thinking of underprivileged families when I think of scholarship!
Also, why is this even considered a Farragut Y when it's not even moderately convenient to most of us Farragut residents? It's not even officially within the town. I'd bet money the donation of the land is a plot to stimulate more commercial interest in the area so this parcel of land will increase in value over time. The developer/donor of the land is still sitting on 16+ acres directly behind the Y. It looks as if there might be a hidden agenda for locating the Y on Northshore!
