LETTER FROM THE EDITOR:

T he mentally ill have always trickled into jails. But in recent years, this population arrived in a torrent. Two-thirds of Tennessee's jails have seen an increase in the number of mentally ill offenders being put behind bars.

Thousands of grandparents and parents struggle to find quality day care in Tennessee, one of the lowest ranking states for day care quality in the nation.

Now that Skaneateles, New York, has played host to the Clintons, there's a good chance that you've heard of the place, and that's satisfaction enough for most locals

Also, homeowners' associations make bad neighbors, approved churches, and more.
