Randy Smith: How The Coaching Carousel Turns

Hiring college football coaches is not an exact science. (The recent Tennessee hiring fiasco is a perfect example) Of the 14 head coaches in the SEC this season, only three have been at their current schools for five years or more. Those three are, Nick Saban at Alabama for ten years, Gus Malzahn at Auburn for five years and Mark Stoops at Kentucky for five. While it appears there ... (click for more)

The Chattanooga Lookouts won game two, 8-1, to split tonight's doubleheader against the Montgomery Biscuits.  After completing just two innings on Sunday, these teams resumed the game on Monday. Sean Poppen had started on Sunday and threw two scoreless innings, striking out four. When play resumed Monday, lefty Dietrich Enns was on the mound. It didn’t go well. He was charged ...

The flames could be seen for miles as a total of 13 fire companies rushed to the scene. The large, two-story ... (click for more)

Bill Lee Is Great For Tennessee

I had the opportunity to meet Bill and Maria Lee at the grand opening of his Chattanooga Campaign HQ. He delivered, what was by most accounts, a showstopper speech at the Statesman’s dinner in Nashville the night before. He and Maria should have been worn out, but if they were, they really showed very little sign of it. His energy level, for a guy that couldn’t have gotten more ... (click for more)

A Successful East Ridge Bake Sale

Saturday's event at the Camp Jordan Pavilion was nothing more than extraordinary, if not history making.  Alongside the threatening eminent domain letters the citizens of East Ridge received, a Union was formed amongst the East Ridge Police Department.  Coming to City Council the night of April 26, I had only one thing I was focused on: eminent domain.  ...
