AMP in Hillsboro Village
I've got an idea about where to situate the AMP. Apparently the idea behind the AMP is not to facilitate travel for Nashville residents, but rather to force drivers off West End Avenue and Harding Road. Therefore I suggest that the route go down 21st Avenue. Since the AMP requires three lanes to operate and Hillsboro Village politics requires that parking be available on 21st Avenue, commuters would be totally prohibited from traveling on 21st Avenue unless they took the bus once all of the parking spots where taken up.
Pledge & pray in school
There has been a recent recall of the pledge to the flag by a man who has served in the military. He is concerned this is not being asked for in many of our public schools. In discussing this I have heard they want to preserve freedom and liberty in the public schools. Our nation has been built on this type of things, especially in the “under God” statements. If you want to know our wonderful history in this regard go online. Isn’t it more important that we honor God and we honor the most important things in our nation than we overlook people who may be different? I know there are many reasons for students to go in and out the classroom during the day. It would be so simple to say, if you object, go to the library for 15 minutes or so, so they can read a prayer or scriptures which we had as children. I am just concerned we are getting too overly disturbed by a few dissenters. This is a very important issue and this should be corrected.
Cloister changes illegal
Cloister at St. Henry lease holders hang in there. No onehas a legal right to make you cough up $15,000 to buy up the foundation your duplex rests on. Your board of directors in 2008-09 failed to carry out the Master Deed that states without “thous” and “therefores” that changes in the association’s community must be voted on and requires a 90 percent approval. Challenge this with the fee simple pushers! Mr. and Mrs. “Oops.” Your story is so very true. So many of us were caught in the same trap. The Cloister’s foundations are just that: foundations costing now $15,000 per duplex. Who set up this figure anyway?
Just don’t buy that soap
To the parent whose daughter drank liquid soap and then wondered "why do they make scented soap that smells like food?" The more pertinent questions are why did you BUY scented soap that smelled like food, and why did you leave a two-year old alone in the bathroom without supervision? "Just make soap normal smelling," you added. They do. Just don’t buy it.
Tennessean is irritating
The Tennessean appears to be working hard at irritating subscribers. First they have made a mess of the obituaries and eliminated the TV listings, now they have eliminated stock indices reporting - no NYSE stock tables, no commodities prices, no market diaries, Dow Jones averages readable only with magnification. Message to the editor - yours is a rather miserable excuse for a major city newspaper, but it's all we have, so quit tinkering with it and making it worse.
I am ticked off at The Tennessean. I just got my bill and they are charging us $2 more for the Thanksgiving issue. They are charging extra for the TV section. They are lucky people are taking their paper at all.
Extra charges unwanted
I am ticked off that The Tennessean has charged us on our bill $3 more for the Thanksgiving edition. I think that’s a crime.
Why no TV Guide?
I’m upset The Tennessean newspaper, the Sunday edition, does not include the TV Guide listing for the Nashville area TV channels anymore. The Tennessean is our local paper. They should provide the TV listings or explain why or why not. Thank you.

Children left in car
I want to report a blue gray Honda. A woman got out of it at the Green Hills Kroger. Parked wrong to begin with, blocking some other cars. She left her small children in the car while she went in to make a return. Now, I wish the Metro Police would look into this. Whatever needs to be done whether Child Protective Services. She went in to return something. You don’t leave your children in the car with the motor running. OK. Even though she locked the doors. It is not acceptable. Not in this day and time. I wish the police would go to her house and talk to her about it.
Hungry child ate soap
Reading about the hungry child that ate soap. Kind of made me sick in my head. If you don’t like it you don’t have to buy it.
Why was child alone?
This is for the person who wrote in about how their hungry child ate soap. First of all, why would you have a two-year-old in the bathroom washing her hands without supervision. Why would your child be that hungry that she’d actually drink soap water. Why? Looney Tune.
A right to their opinion
This is a response to callers who were dissing the CMA people for saying what they thought about Obamacare. Well, they have a right to their opinion. I’m not sure why people think other people should not express their opinions. I think these people have a right to say what they think too. They are missing a big part of the equation. Obamacare is not about insuring the poor. If it did that then there’d be no denial for pre-existing conditions and putting on 26-year olds. They could have done that in three pages instead of 3,000. This is about an Obama takeover of all of our health care and about us losing our health care. If more people get it more people will lose it. This is about funding. The government gets more money. Remember people will have to pay fines to the government if they are without insurance. We have to pay more for our premiums. These people need to see the story about the single mother who wrote Obama a great letter praising him because she was going to be able to have insurance. A single mom with her own business but it turns out she can’t afford the insurance. People aren’t realizing the deductible on this insurance is over $6,000 for a single person and $12, 500 a year for a family in out-of-pocket expenses. They can’t afford that so people aren’t looking at the bigger picture. Callers, you have the right to say what you think but you were wrong.
