3 IN YOUR TOWN: Fireman's Fountain

Posted: Updated:
CHATTANOOGA, TN (WRCB) -

The Fireman’s Fountain in downtown Chattanooga is a revered memorial for the firemen, Henry Iler and W.M. Peak who lost their lives in the line of duty in June of 1887. City officials wasted no time erecting the fountain as a memorial.

Of course that’s something most of us can agree on. But what wasn’t agreed upon was how to protect the fountain from anyone or anything that might damage the memorial. So at some point, officials recommended adding alligators to the corner of Lookout and Georgia.

Periodically however the alligators would escape the pen and roam the streets of downtown Chattanooga much to the dismay of it residents.  Needless to say having alligators protecting the fountain, while interesting as a concept, it did not last too long and the alligators were removed.

    Good Tuesday.  We are all under a WINTER WEATHER ADVISORY and some of us under a WIND CHILL ADVISORY through the day. It will be cold all day with high temperatures only reaching the upper 20s and low 30s.  These high temps will be reached early on at about noon, and then temps will be dropping through the afternoon as a cold front works through.

    CVS to end airbrushing in ads for its beauty products

    In the worlds of fashion, beauty and advertising, models are routinely tweaked and trimmed in photos. But critics of the practice say it promotes unrealistic ideas about body image. So CVS, the nation's largest drugstore chain, announced Monday that it will stop "materially" retouching models in ads for its store-brand beauty products by 2020.
