Mackler Back In Senate Race

After clearing the deck for Bredesen last time around, Iraq War veteran/attorney James Mackler is back in the senate race – this time running for Lamar Alexander’s soon-to-be-open seat. James deserves a lot of credit for putting the country first and getting out when he did last time around, and this early entry should give him a boost by the time 2020 rolls around.

Check out Mackler’s new video below, and go to his site to learn more.

Giles County Mourns the Passing of D Ray Cobb

D Ray Cobb, father of former state rep and current Columbia police chief Ty Cobb, passed suddenly this week. Giles County and the surrounding areas mourn his passing.

Ty recently wrote a touching tribute to his “awesome dad”, who many of us knew from his outspoken advocacy and unabashed support.

From Ty:

“Natalie, David and I were able to share 40 years of life with our dad. That’s over half of his life of 73 years.

We will not be selfish! Yes, we wanted more time, but you never get enough. But with faith, family, friends, and the great memories of our Dad, his will carry us through for all the years to come.

And with that … We are forever thankful. We love you, Dad!”

D Ray was always the first to speak up to right a wrong, and we will miss him dearly.
