  • For Hamilton County EMS, it’s a time of change and transition. Last month, the County opened a new administration and training center for EMS - on Volunteer Drive in Chattanooga. Since then, John Miller - the County’s EMS director - has announced his retirement.
  • Community gardens are shared spaces for people to grow plants - flowers, vegetables, you name it. These gardens are found in communities large and small, urban and rural - and they are as varied as the places where they grow, including here in Chattanooga and Hamilton County.
  • “Destiny in Dayton” is the play for this year’s Scopes Festival. On Friday and Saturday, the festival in Dayton will commemorate the 1925 trial of John Scopes, a high school teacher accused of violating a Tennessee law that barred the teaching of evolution in public schools.
  • In 1955, Emmett Till was kidnapped and lynched in Mississippi. His cousin Wheeler Parker, Jr. was in the house when he was taken. Now a reverend in his eighties, Parker is the next guest on “The A List with Alison Lebovitz,” this Thursday at 8:30 PM on our public media partner WTCI PBS.
