Red Cross taken over by Nashville office

Posted on March 3, 2008 12:12 am by Sparta Live

    While the Nashville Red Cross representatives say the change is an “ongoing effort to maximize resources and provide excellent service,” several members of the White County American Red Cross Chapter expressed great concern about the loss of the local chapter.
    Effective Feb. 20, 2008, the White County Red Cross chapter ceased to exist. In fact, one board member said, “It is very sad to me. We work so hard to help people around here, and I don’t know what is going to happen.”
    “It is a great loss,” said Dr. Charles Mitchell, one of the founding members of the Red Cross board. “I have been with the Red … Read More


‘Nursing Home’ law sparks two-sided debate

Posted on March 3, 2008 12:12 am by Sparta Live

    A controversial bill that would place limitations on tort actions against long-term care facilities and authorizes use of arbitration agreements by and on behalf of the patient has sparked heated debate between those in favor of the law and those who believe the legislation would be a bad decision.
    The bill is now being reviewed in the Judiciary Committee, where it was transferred Feb. 12. Representative Charles Curtiss, of White County, is one of the sponsors of this bill.
    According to the wording of the proposed legislation, any long-term tort action related to the provision of health related services would be brought solely as a medical malpractice action.… Read More

Preparation. L. R. West, Sparta Electric manager, gets ready for the electric rate increase caused by the recent drought conditions.

   Good news comes to Sparta Electric customers with the announcement that power rates will be remaining status quo, at least for now.

Spring forward? Already?

Posted on March 3, 2008 12:12 am by Sparta Live

    I have not seen enough snow yet for the spring to be at our doorstep, but regardless of my stand on the subject, we “spring forward” our clocks this weekend. Now just one cotton pickin’ minute, hold your horses granny – how can that be?
    Every spring we move ahead the clocks by one hour, and then in the fall, we “fall back.” This system was instituted decades ago to take advantage of the later hours of daylight between April and October. But Daylight Saving Time was extended four weeks with the passage of the Energy Policy Act in 2005. The time change now begins the second Sunday … Read More

    Just when I thought Calgon could  “take me away” to a land of stress-free days, up jumps a new remedy for all those overstressed, unappreciated, extremely busy mothers.
    Give me a break! What mother ISN’T overstressed, unappreciated and extremely busy at some point in her life? Sorry, folks. That goes with the territory. And, yes, it’s true that everybody needs a little time alone to get a new lease on life. However, the latest quick fix for taking care of all that stress comes in the form of “mommy meditation.”
    Now, those two words, when separated, have clear definitions. But, when combined, they take on a whole new … Read More
