Mountain Lion Killed by Bradley County Hunter

With all due respect, were YOU there? You say ” we don’t know if he tried other methods to scare the animal off.” Right. We don’t know. If he was in a deer stand, chances are he would have been safe. He may have had to stay a little longer than planned, but eventually the lion would have wandered on. If the hunter was on the ground, and the lion was close by, I can understand. But if the in was off in the distance and got caught in the crosshairs,that’s a whole different story.
But as an animal lover, it’s true that no one knows what they would do if it happened to them.

Monticello Nurses Resuscitate Collapsed Player at Watson Chapel

Nurses are special people. Thankfully they were there. Also, thankfully they had a defibrillator. I wish the Monticello Softball complex had one. The same thing could happen there. The player and his family are in my prayers.

Legislative Report

It is sad that school employees have to pay SO much more for insurance than regular state employees. Many school employees cannot afford the extremely high premiums, especially for dependent coverage.

Driver Identified in Friday’s Fatal Crash on HWY 278 East

Does anyone know how to go about approaching the Hwy Dept about this dangerous stretch of road? One would think that fixing the problem would be a high priority. Maybe Drew Countians need to start a petition.

Popular Tree Falls to Progress

Kind of sad to see it go. I remember it from high school in the 60′s.
Later I would sit in its shade while my kids took swimming lessons.

Hollering Highlights from Last Monday’s Meeting – Video -Approaching 1,700 Plays

I agree with Karon. If the population is equal between the city and county, what is wrong with everyone paying the same? Seems like that would be the most fair way.

Dozen Suspects Identified by Police in DCHS Vandalism – $5,000 Damages Estimated – RePost

I too feel the students should have to do some community service and reimburse the school for the damages. Also their diploma should be held until thier punishment has been complete. If it was my child I would make sure they paid the time for doing the crime.

Parks Committee Details History & Details of Babe Ruth League Issues

Maybe we should go by the old adage, “If you can’t say anything good, say nothing at all.” Oh, that would close the comment section, wouldn’t it?

I agree with “Parent”.
This has all been blown out of proportion. People are posting who don’t know anything about this situation. They are getting off on other gripes that don’t even apply to the subject at hand. Go do something constructive instead of griping and running people down.

Joe, is this really a picture of Monticello’s City Hall? Since I live in the out in the county, I don’t go in the City Hall. It just doesn’t look like I remember it. Just wondering.

Joe B. Yes.

Nix Found Guilty of Second Degree Murder- Sentenced to 45 Years

To All the readers, the word of The Lord is what it is. I do not have to defend the word and you cannot change God’s word. kelly Free, All have sinned, no one is immune therefore we have no right to judge!

SMH, Jesus’ famous reprimand for those who spend lots of time judging others, while ignoring their own faults . We certainly wouldn’t want to be judged in the same way we judge others (SMH)–so leave the judging to God, and focus on correcting your own weaknesses instead. Local Man, The more you read or hear you find more info coming out. We don’t know if Nix was the shooter or not.

Justlovinlife, It’s a natural human impulse to judge and criticize others, to note how they don’t measure up to our standards in one way or another. Unite together, but the Bible is clear about the role of judgment in our lives: we should focus on our judging eyes on ourselves and our own ample faults, rather than obsessing on the flaws of other people. Can “YOU” truly say who did what unless “YOU” were there? Yet, 2 people lives are destroyed and both families are shattered because of the end results.

Gib, cand we say, I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith. Finally, there is laid up for me the crown of righteousness, which the Lord, the righteous Judge, will give to me on that Day, and not to me only but also to all who have loved His appearing. –2 Timothy 4:7-8
I, Kay says, “If any one of you is without sin, let him be the first to throw a stone.” With this simple phrase, Jesus silenced an angry crowd ready to execute a women caught in adultery. His words challenged them to judge themselves before judging others. John 8 1-11 NIV

Let us pray for the families and friends in Jesus’ name.

I am sorry that you feel that way, however, I interpreted what was stated. It is impossible to be perfect here on earth. I am delighted you got to know him for 5 years. Did you know Nix for five years or longer? I am sure the answer would be “NO.” How can you judge him on his kindness or lack of kindness if you didn’t know him? We all have faults. I am an outsider reading what is stated. To be fair to both sides you cannot say Nix is a bad person. What he allegedly did was a crime. As I have said we were NOT there we don’t know what happened. So my view is just as unimportant as yours. It is now left to 12 to judge. We are all entitled to a fair trial. Your opinion of me warrants nothing I am just stating the facts. Once the facts come out we might find out an entirely different dilemma. The end results are the same 2 families are NOW shattered. I pray for both families and all friends of the families. I am reminded of Proverbs 15-1 A soft answer turneth away wrath: but grievous words stir up anger. So I say to all the readers here be blessed in the Lord.

Without a doubt Nix will not get a trail in Monticello. I am sure his lawyer knows there is no way he could get a fair trial there because of all the comments that has been given or expressed. We all have given judgment as thou we were there. A good man Katlin was from all that I have read and from most, he seems to be too good for HEAVEN. None is perfect but the LORD! It is refreshing to know that GOD is GOD and not US! Let him without SIN cast the first stone, CAN YOU? Not I, for I have sinned. And he is the propitiation for our sins: and not for ours only, but also for the sins of the whole world 1st John chapter 3. Be Blessed by GOD!

» Posted By KAY On March 15, 2011 @ 6:41 am

It seems most of us are judging. I am just fair with my judgement. Both men life was lost. I don’t know either man personally. But I am sure there is something good in Jamal. Yes, I will quote the word of GOD, because it is the WORD! No one can change it. It has to be more than what we have read, Nix just didn’t walk in and shoot because there are 7 days in a week. Something else happened. I never stated that “Katlin” wasn’t a good guy, he was not perfect, NONE PERFECT BUT THE LORD! We must make sure we are fair in our dealings because we would want the same treatment if it was us or our love ones. Nix have family also that I am sure loves him as much as Katlin family and friends do. Just be fair none of us know what happened. We are all very sad at the end. But we don’t want to make a judgement call and not know for sure if we are correct. So as I always do …For God sent not his Son into the world to condemn the world; but that the world through him might be saved.John 3 vs 17. I am Kay and I pray for each of you that you will stay blessed!
