When John and Eliza Long came into view of the Ross’s Landing wilderness in 1836, they “felt we were coming out of the world to come and live among the bears and Indians, yet we were full of hope and courage.” John Pomfret Long floated down by flatboat from Rhea County, while Mrs. Long followed on horseback with an uncle. When Mrs. Long stood on the dividing line between white man and Indian, she “looked with delight on the beautiful landscape Lookout Mountain and Cameron Hill their sides and the valley beneath were covered with what seemed to me a vast unbroken forest.” The Landing then included only a muddy winding road (Market Street) with a few “straggling log cabins.” There were three small log stores. A cabin that was a little larger than the rest was a

tavern and inn kept by the widow Jane Henderson.

John P. Long said with an air of pride to his bride, “Your future home right in the Indian nation.” Then all the settlers (about a dozen families) came to a special supper to bid the newcomers a hearty welcome. Mrs. Long found “here and there settlements of Indians, who owned horses and cattle and a good many Negro slaves. They were kind masters. The nation owned the land and each Indian could have all the land he could cultivate. The Indian neighbors were kind and friendly. They were good customers who always paid their debts.”

The Longs occupied a two room log cabin, with the front room filled with store goods. The back room was “a parlor, dining room, chamber and kitchen all in one.” There was a big, wide chimney and board windows. In this simple residence, the Longs were “just as happy as if we had lived in a mansion.” The Longs kept no lock on their door. Valuable goods were left lying on the wharf for weeks and “nobody touched them.”

John P. Long learned to talk with the Indians, and he asked them questions about the history of the area, including the origin of the name “Chattanooga.” Soon the decree went out that the Indians were to be deported west, away from their beloved homeland. One of the stockades was by the river near Ross’s Landing. soldiers was stationed on the hill at East Fourth Street (Brabson Hill) to aid in the roundup and to help protect the white settlers in case there should be an uprising. Mrs. Long was distressed as she saw the soldiers leading her Indian friends into the stockade. She said of the “Trail of Tears,” “A long and terrible journey it was, and hundreds died along the way.”

John P. Long was a native of Knoxville, the son of William and Jane Bennett Long, who were married in 1805. William Long, a carpenter, also moved to Ross’s Landing. William Long was born Feb. He moved to Knoxville in 1797 and resided there until 1813 when he moved to Washington in Rhea County. William Long arrived at Ross’s Landing in November 1836. He was one of the organizers of the Presbyterian Church at Chattanooga in 1840 and he served as an elder. He was so uniformly upright that the saying arose “as honest as Billy Long.” He died Nov. 1, 1844. Jane Bennett Long died at Chattanooga on Dec. 10, 1859. Their other children were Mary Long who married John A. Hooke, and James Shields Long, a physician who married Jane Caldwell of Monroe County, Ga. James Shields Long died in 1866, leaving daughters Mary and Virginia.

John P. Long’s grandfather, John Long, was a native of County Antrim, Ireland, who went to Mecklenburg County. He came alone to America, leaving only a maiden sister in Ireland. During the Revolution, some Tories were captured and brought in to Charlotte. It was learned from them that an attack was to be made on Post Ninety Six, about 100 miles from Charlotte. John Long is said to have gone on foot to Ninety Six, leaving at sunrise and delivering the dispatch at sundown. It was said to be “a remarkable record, showing the patriotism of the man, the spirit of the times, and the pluck that is in the blood of the Longs.” John Long was drowned in 1799 while returning in the night from a Masonic meeting.

Jane Bennett Long was the daughter of Major Peter Bennett and Elizabeth Pomfret Bennett. Elizabeth Pomfret was the daughter of John Pomfret of King William County, Va. He was the son of another John Pomfret who came from England to King William County and married a Miss Hunt. Major Bennett, a Virginia native, was sheriff of Granville County before moving to Knox County in 1802. Major Bennett died in 1822 at Knox County. Jane Bennett Long was born in Granville County Jan. 26, 1781, and moved with her father to Knox County in 1802. She was a Presbyterian.

John Pomfret Long was born in Knox County Nov. 25, 1807. He finished his schooling at Knoxville when he was 14, then the Longs moved to Washington at Rhea County. He worked for three years at a tannery, then clerked three years at Washington for Col. Thomas McCallie. John P. Long built a frame house there, but just after it was finished it was washed off its foundation and out into the street. Later, Long made it into a raft and floated down to Ross’s Landing. He then rebuilt the house at his new home.

Eliza Smith Long was born on Jan. 25, 1813, near Hiwassee Garrison at the mouth of Richland Creek in Rhea County. She was the daughter of William Smith, a schoolteacher who moved down from Massachusetts to Knox County in 1808. He later established Smith’s Crossroads (Dayton) in Rhea County. The wife of William Smith was Elizabeth Cozby, daughter of the physician and Indian fighter Dr. James Cozby. Dr. Cozby was married to Isabella Woods. Eliza Smith resided on her father’s farm until she was 16, then she went away to the college operated at Knoxville by Dr. Esterbrook. Her marriage to John P. Long occurred on Nov. 6, 1834, at Smith’s Crossroads.

It was John P. Long who suggested the name “Chattanooga” when there was a town meeting to replace the old title of Ross’s Landing. Along with Aaron M. Rawlings and George W. Williams, he was a commissioner at the time entries were made for lots at Chattanooga. He was the town’s first postmaster and was city recorder for three years, until the city was evacuated by the Confederates. He joined the Presbyterian church in 1843 and was elected an elder in his father’s place after his death. John P. Long cast his first vote in 1832 for General Andrew Jackson. He next supported Hugh Lawson White, then he voted the Whig ticket “from Harrison to Bell.” Afterwards, he was a Democrat. He attended the Whig state convention at Murfreesboro in 1841. He was “always a States’ Rights man as was his father before him.” He voted against secession in February of 1861, but, after Lincoln ordered out troops, he voted for it.

When the Civil War fighting began, John P. Long at first kept his family in town. In 1862, he was appointed provost marshal of Chattanooga by General John Porter McCown. With the arrival of the Yankees, John P. Long went south to Griffin, Ga., to prepare a place for his family. However, Mrs. Long and her boys, John P. Long Jr., Milo Smith Long and Marcus Bearden Long, along with their servant Aunt Clary and her daughters, were caught up in the fierce fighting in 1863. At the time they lived on South Market Street where the Chattanooga Choo Choo is now located. Early the next morning after the fighting at Chickamauga, the Longs awoke to find the house covered with soldiers pulling shingles off in preparation for the imminent battle that was expected in Chattanooga. The Longs then joined the “strange, silent motley crowd all leaving their homes.” There was “no weeping or lamentations” as they looked back and one of the boys said, “Look, mother, there goes our house.”

Aunt Clary jerked the family Bible away from a Union soldier who was tearing out the leaves,

and it was said it was the only time in her life that Aunt Clary ever cursed. The Longs went to the home of Mrs. Long’s brother, Dr. Milo Smith. The family suffered hunger in the months the town was under Confederate siege, and Mrs. Long once made a personal appeal to General James A. Garfield, a future president. He gave her part of his own food a piece of hardtack and a piece of white meat. The Longs were finally able to join John P. Long at Griffin, Ga., where they remained for the duration of the war.

John P. Long Jr., who was barely old enough to enlist, had a leg blown off at the battle of Atlanta. Rheumatism developed in his other leg so that it was useless to him. In 1879. he died at age

33 of heart disease at his parents’ home. John P. Long Jr., who served with the 19th Tennessee

Infantry, was born March 4, 1847.

An older brother, James Cozby Long, was in a number of naval fights, serving as a crew member of the Merrimac. Born in 1844, he was educated at the Naval Academy at Annapolis. He resigned and joined the Confederate Navy in 1861 and was attached to the fleet off the coast of North Carolina. He was in a fight at Roanoke Island prior to transferring to the Merrimac. He was in the famous naval fights at Hampton Roads and remained with the ship until it burned. Navy. Later, he served on a blockade runner. After the war, he was a civil engineer, having

charge of the government works at Muscle Shoals for a time. He later was a manufacturer of iron paint at Birmingham, Ala. He marred Frances Walker at Elyton, Ala., in 1872. Their children were William Walker, John Pomfret, James Cozby and Mary.

Milo Smith Long graduated in medicine at Nashville and moved to Dakota. Marcus Bearden Long was a civil engineer. He was at one time an engineer on the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railroad. He was unmarried.

The Long home was at West Seventh and Cedar after the war. Always a Chattanooga booster, John P. Long gave a speech in March of 1880 outlining the city’s history. He gained a law license in 1868 and he practiced mainly in the realty area. John P. Long lived until 1889, and Mrs. Long survived until March 30, 1900. It was said of John P. Long that he “has desired wealth and has been sometimes up and sometimes down, but has always made it a rule to pay his debts. With one exception he has always made a profit on whatever he has sold. He never swore an oath in his life, and was brought up to regard the Sabbath. He has never been dissipated, though not always strictly temperate. He is a self assertive man, and of quick temper.”

Of the 11 children of John P. and Eliza Long, five died in infancy. Several did not marry. William Pomfret Long, the eldest, died when he was 19. Elizabeth Jane Long died when she was 16. John Pomfret Long IV, a descendant of James Cozby Long, resided at Tullahoma. He had two sons.

argentine polo players Loner accused in killing of British lawmaker Jo Cox

polo ralph laure Loner accused in killing of British lawmaker Jo Cox

To neighbors, Tommy Mair is a quiet man who tended their gardens in the small town of Birstall in northern England.

But details are emerging about a man who has had interests in white supremacy and apartheid.

The 52 year old is reportedly the prime suspect in the killing of Jo Cox, a British member of Parliament described as a fearless campaigner and rising star of the opposition Labour Party. Mair was arrested blocks from the crime scene.

Cox, 41, was shot and stabbed as she emerged from a meeting with her constituents Thursday, a week before an increasingly divisive vote on whether Britain should cut ties with Europe.

The center released copies of receipts and a 2013 subscription to the National Alliance publication National Vanguard as well as receipts from 1999 showing purchases for the neo Nazi book Kampfe, the Munitions Handbook and other books.

In a statement the National Alliance said:

National Alliance had and has no connection with Thomas Mair any more than with any other book customer; we did not work with him, were not familiar with him, and did not remember his name even after the release of the illegally obtained book receipts.

Similarly, we were totally unfamiliar with Jo Cox until the news stories about her tragic end came to our attention. The National Alliance is politically neither pro Labour Party nor anti Labour Party, disagreeing with that party on many but far from all issues, and welcoming that party increasingly critical stance toward Jewish and Zionist power in recent years. We recently republished an essay suggesting that racially conscious Whites in Britain should join the Labour Party. also subscribed to a pro apartheid group magazine in the 1980s, the magazine editor told CNN.

Mr. Thomas A. Harvey said, adding the publication had further contact with him after brief correspondence in the mid 1980s.

were of course appalled and sickened to learn of the murder yesterday of Ms. Jo Cox, Harvey said.

despicable act is too early to know what motivated the attack, which came as Cox campaigned for In, a slogan urging the UK to remain in the European Union in next week referendum.

Cox was an avid campaigner for the rights of refugees and played down fears of immigration, a hot button issue in the referendum debate.

Police say they are pursuing reports that Mair had ties to right wing extremists and looking into his mental health after Mair brother, Scott Mair, reportedly told The Sun newspaper that Mair had a of mental illness, but he has had help, and that his brother was neither violent nor political.

are aware of the speculation within the media in respect (to) the suspect link to mental health services and this is a clear line of inquiry which we are pursuing, police said.

Clarke Rothwell, who runs a cafe near where Cox was attacked, told the Press Association that he heard the attacker shouting, Britain first. First is the name of a UK political party that has been campaigning for Britain to leave the EU.

Thursday, the party leader, Paul Golding, denied the group was linked to the attack, calling the act downright despicable act of criminality. no evidence whatsoever that Britain First was shouted, or putting British people first, he said in a lengthy video posted to Facebook.

media are acting grossly irresponsible to try and incriminate our organization Britain First in this heinous crime. We had nothing to do with it, he said.

meek and mild Peters, a 65 year old neighbor of Mair told CNN there was nothing to indicate such a thing could happen.

a total surprise that he was even capable of thought, let alone action, she said of the long time neighbor who lived by himself.

yeah, (he just an ideal neighbor. Helpful when you wanted it, kept himself to himself, she said, adding he is neat and tidy. lived in the neighborhood when Mair was a child. She moved away but returned four years ago to find he was living in the same house.

She said Mair taught English to foreigners as a part time volunteer for years.

never came up in conversation. We never talked about anything like that, she said.

She said she never saw anyone visiting his home and had never been inside. But she said she believed Mair visited his mother every Sunday and took her groceries once a week as well.

She described him as a meek and mild man who liked cats.

spoke rationally. He did his day to day routine, she said.

Peters said Mair has an garden and often tended to neighbors gardens.

Other neighbors gave similar accounts, saying he was quiet, tidy and often helped with their gardening.

Six years ago, Mair was quoted in the local newspaper regarding his work as a volunteer at Oakwell Hall, a manor house popular with tourists in Birstall.

For the first time, the target audience isn’t just female fashion fans. Monday’s show marked a move by Burberry to merge its traditionally separate women’s and menswear shows. Fittingly, creative director Christopher Bailey was inspired by Virginia Woolf’s novel “Orlando,” whose hero is a poet who changes gender from man to woman.

The move, also introduced by several other brands this season, is seen as an industry game changer: Traditionally, fashion shows are exclusive previews intended only for industry insiders, and consumers have to wait months before the new styles are released in stores.

A shipwreck has never looked so elegant or darkly romantic.

Canada born designer Erdem Moralioglu always infuses his shows with a sense of drama and haunting beauty, and this time is no different. Models wore large floppy black hats that obscured their faces, gliding on a weathered boardwalk that appeared to weave in and out of water.

With American Vogue editor Anna Wintour presiding in the front row at the Christopher Kane show, guests arrived with an emphasis on sparkly boots and heels, with green and silver sequins predominating. There were mustard thigh high boots, silver patent leather shoes with tassels, and pointy black and red suede ankle boots with heels shaped like a sailboat’s winged keels.

Despite the museum setting, there is nothing safe or conventional about Kane’s approach. Some of the three quarter length coats were ripped for impact’s sake, and some of the elegant dresses had cutaways and high tech mesh panels.

Long black gloves were meant to be iconoclastic not a nod to ballet days and were decorated with colors and cutouts.

Some of the dresses sported dozens of metallic hooks, some closed to keep the ensembles together, others serving no apparent structural purpose. Many were set off by Stephen Jones’ distinctive hats, often in solid colors to offset the controlled chaos of the ensembles.

Designer Vivienne Westwood, alongside her granddaughter Cora Corre, during her Spring/Summer 2015 collection during London Fashion Week, at Victoria House in central London, Sunday, Sept. 14, 2014. (Photo by Joel Ryan/Invision/AP)LONDON (AP) London Fashion Week swung into Day 3 Sunday, packed from morning to night with next season’s womenswear offerings from dozens of designers.

Fashionistas were spoilt for choice, with Temperley, Topshop Unique, Paul Smith and Pringle of Scotland all showing their spring and summer collections.

And amid the blur of models and catwalks, British fashion’s grandest dame Vivienne Westwood was keen to draw the fashion crowd’s attention to politics, using her runway to help campaign for Scottish independence.

Among the day’s highlights:

TEMPERLEY GOES CASUAL WITH SNEAKERS

Looking cool and stylish has never been so comfortable: Just ditch the heels, and stick to sneakers.

You know flat shoes are in when a designer like Alice Temperley, who specializes in ladylike occasion wear, makes her models wear lace up canvas sneakers with everything.

The designer said she wanted a younger, more relaxed daywear look for the upcoming spring and summer, and Sunday’s show is just that: All rolled up trousers, loose shirt dresses, flowing kimonos, and soft, fluid takes on the man’s three piece suit.

Actress Alice Eve, who recently starred in “Star Trek: Into Darkness,” was in the front row with pop star Nicole Scherzinger.

“I love a heel, but flats are good for the day,” said Eve, who was beginning filming of a new movie “Criminal,
oakley golf polo London Fashion Week Day 3
” with Kevin Costner. “She made it work. I think it was a clever and bold collection.”Temperley opened her show with androgynous looks that played with men’s suiting, but these looks were chic and feminine instead of manly, coming in monochrome checks, a pastel pink and blue palette, and floaty chiffons. A cropped trench coat was cut high in the back to reveal a glimpse of bare waist.

Dresses, separates and kimonos in vibrant checks, stripes and marine prints followed, taking the audience from city nights out to cocktails by the beach.

The collection was classy as always, and would likely appeal to a wider clientele than the typical Temperley customer.

DAME VIVIENNE SPEAKS OUT ON SCOTLAND

Vivienne Westwood may be staging a catwalk show, but Scotland not clothes is foremost on the designer’s mind.

Never one to shy away from making a political statement, the eccentric 73 year old used her runway Sunday to urge Scots to vote “Yes” to breaking away from the United Kingdom in Thursday’s referendum.

Westwood proudly wore a “Yes” badge, and sent her models down the catwalk sporting the same badge prominently on their lapels or hats.

“I am so excited, fingers crossed they will win. Because, if they do, it could be the turning point towards a better world. They could lead by example,” read a statement that was placed on every guest’s seat.

She had stronger words backstage, where she spoke passionately about social injustices and the lack of real democracy in England. as “frightened and stupid.”

“I hate England. I like Scotland because somehow I think they are better than we are. They are more democratic,” she told reporters.

What about the fashion? Fans and fashionistas know that the Red Label show almost never strays from Westwood’s signature femme fatale style, whatever the latest trends are. There were bustiers, beautifully draped blouses and dresses, micro shorts and saucy outfits that show off the female shape.

Over the past few years clothes have played second fiddle for Westwood, who is more keen to devote her attention to causes from climate change to campaigning for WikiLeaks chief Julian Assange.

Westwood said she plans to scale down her production and focus on quality over quantity, although she has no plans to retire if only to continue to use it as a platform for activism.

“It gives me an opportunity to try to say things,” she said. “People do listen because they like to hear people who stick their heads out to say a few things.”

SPARKLY DANCE DRESSES AND SPORTY LOOKS AT TOPSHOP

Sporty shorts, flirty mini skirts, sweet baby doll tops, sparkly party dresses Topshop Unique had it all in a collection that spoke of party nights and carefree days.

united water polo London attack toll rises to 7 dead as May insists ‘things need to change’

polo purple label cologne London attack toll rises to 7 dead as May insists ‘things need to change’

LONDON The death toll rose to seven Sunday, following the latest terrorist attack to strike Britain, with Prime Minister Theresa May blaming the “evil ideology of Islamist extremism” and vowing to conduct a review of the nation’s counterterrorism laws.

London Metropolitan Police Commissioner Cressida Dick confirmed that seven people were killed in Saturday night’s incident that saw a van mow down pedestrians on London Bridge before the vehicle’s occupants got out and started stabbing patrons of nearby bars and restaurants. That toll does not include the three attackers, who were fatally shot by officers within eight minutes of the first emergency call, Dick said. A dozen people were arrested, police said.

The low tech but high profile attack will raise questions about how British security services failed to stop yet another mass casualty strike after years of thwarting such attempts. May, who is running for another term in this week’s general election, said the nation needs to step up its fight against radical ideologies in response, asserting that there is “far too much tolerance for extremism in our country.”

“Things need to change,” May said Sunday, speaking outside of the prime minister’s residence at 10 Downing Street

The recent spate of terrorist attacks Saturday’s was Britain’s third in as many months were not connected, May said. But she described it as “a new trend” in which terrorists are “copying one another and often using the crudest means of attack.”

May had returned from the campaign trail to 10 Downing Street late Saturday for emergency meetings with security officials. On Sunday morning, all the major parties, including May’s Conservatives, suspended campaigning ahead of an election due on Thursday.

May said the election would go ahead as scheduled, a position that was endorsed by her rivals, who joined her in condemning the attacks.

Labour leader Jeremy Corbyn said on Twitter: “Brutal and shocking incidents reported in London. My thoughts are with the victims and their families. Thank you to the emergency services.”

Witnesses described a rampage that left a trail of bloodied bodies on the bridge and in the adjacent Borough Market, both London landmarks.

The attacks set off scenes of panic in the heart of London on a cool June evening as the city’s streets were filled with people heading home from dinner or out for a drink.

In packed pubs normally scenes of Saturday night revelry and merriment patrons threw chairs, bottles and glasses at the attackers as the assailants used long knives to slash their way through crowds. Tourists gaped at the carnage from the roofs of double decker buses.

Police said the attacks were being treated as “terrorist incidents.” The top priority of police now is to find out more about “these individuals who carried out the attack and the background to it,” Dick said.

London Mayor Sadiq Khan issued a statement condemning “a deliberate and cowardly attack on innocent Londoners and visitors to our city enjoying their Saturday night.”

People in London should expect more police on the streets in the coming days, Khan said in a television interview on Sunday morning. But Londoners should not be alarmed and should not let terrorists disrupt daily life or the upcoming election, he said.

“We can’t allow them to do that,” Khan told Sky News.

Rowley said the men had not used explosives, despite a widely distributed photo that appeared to show one of the assailants lying prone with metal canisters strapped to his body. Rowley said the vest was “a hoax.”

Saturday marks the third major attack in Britain this spring. The evening’s carnage carried grim echoes of a similar incident in late March, when a driver swerved into pedestrians at Westminster Bridge, another Thames crossing, killing four. The driver then fatally stabbed a police officer at the gates of Parliament.

May had lowered the nation’s threat level only days ago from “critical” to “severe” after having raised it following a bombing last month at a Manchester pop music concert that was claimed by the Islamic State and that killed 22 people.

But even with the lower threat level, the nation’s intelligence services had continued to judge that another attack was likely.

The van collided with a guardrail. Bystanders said they thought the crash may have been an accident, until the occupants got out.

The three men who had been in the vehicle immediately began stabbing people on the bridge with knives before making their way to Borough Market, a food lovers paradise nestled under the archways of railway viaducts that attracts locals as well as tourists from around the world.

It was in the market, just south of the bridge, where police killed the attackers and ended the rampage.

“I heard many gunshots, and I heard people running away,” said Joe Dillon, 23, who was nearby when the attack occurred. “Police officers were shouting: ‘Get out of here, you need to go!’ I heard at least eight rounds of gunshots, but I’m not sure who was shooting.”

Cellphone video from a restaurant in the market showed people diving under tables amid the sound of breaking glass as officers rushed in and ordered patrons to stay down.

Tamara Alcolea, 24, a bartender in a pub called Southwark Rooms near the bridge, said the first indication that something was wrong was when she heard that someone had been stabbed close to London Bridge.

Next week is Dance Like the Stars, which benefits Boys Girls Clubs of North Mississippi. Grist, George Stone, Ashley Buse, Anne Haire and Peggi Phillips from Tupelo; Matt Koon of New Albany; Laquita Wilkerson of Ripley and Ruby Lee Lancaster of Houston.

Whereas most of the students at the Dance Studio are just learning how to dance, the stars are learning a routine and those are two very different things.

With students, we start off with basic dances in a very systematic approach to learning, Wilson said. With stars, they dont need to learn how to do the rumba, but how to do a rumba routine. Well sit down with each contestant and get ideas of their styles and song choices, that way we get a variety of different dances. We spend the first couple of weeks moving in that style.

This years Dance Like the Stars will feature the celebrities dancing in styles like cha cha, salsa, samba and foxtrot.

Members of the Boys Girls Clubs also dance at the event, so the instructors teach them their moves, too.

All of this work is done on top of the instructors regular duties: Embler is called the studios jack of all trades. He does everything from repairs to party planning. Wilson is also the studio manager who returns phone calls and emails.

They each train, choreograph numbers and prepare lessons for their students in addition to teaching.

For Dance Like the Stars, Wilson also picks out and orders costumes, shoes and other accessories the stars may need.

The celebrities dancing at this years show arent known for their dancing skills, but Wilson said she often sees a lot of talent in those who think they have two left feet.

For more than 10 years the Haven Hospice Attic Resale Store has been helping students in the Eastside High School Institute of Culinary Arts to dress for success while completing the required 200 hours working in the hospitality industry.

Steve Tinney, Haven Hospice Gainesville Attic Resale Store manager, said Haven Hospice donates white shirts, black pants, black skirts, socks and shoes to the Institute of Culinary Arts program, which also teaches students a wide range of skills relating to restaurant design, menu design, restaurant marketing and entrepreneurship.

Billie DeNunzio, director of the Eastside High School Institute of Culinary Arts for 20 years and counting, said the students have been able to get jobs in the culinary industry without worrying about professional attire and that makes a big difference.

DeNunzio said the program receives funding from the school with a big portion of the budget coming from catering jobs. She said Haven’s donations have made a big difference to the program, which also operates a restaurant called, The Hungry Ram Caf, on the school campus.

cheap polo ralph lauren Local Store Prepare For Tax Free Weekend Rush

Some stores say it the busiest weekend of the year. Tax Free Weekend kicks off Friday or at midnight for some stores.”We kind of look at this like our warm up game for fourth quarter, just to kind of make sure that we are on process to handle the business that we get during November and December, so this is our practice game,” said Target Store Team Leader Deedee Floresca.But when you are out this weekend, be prepared for the crowds.”Have a list, know what you want to get, expect that it is going to be a little busier, but just have fun with it,” said Floresca.The South Plains Mall is ready for the rush.”Tax Free Weekend is usually the busiest weekend of the year, Christmas season of course is the best weekend for us, but this coming weekend is really the best coming weekend for our stores, said Beth Bridges with the South Plains Mall.Here how it works, no tax on clothing and shoes that are priced less than $100.This year especially managers say cutting the tax, helps with the rising cost of living.”Every nickel and penny that people can save these days with the gas prices and the way the economy is will really bring people out this weekend,” said Manager of Cardinal Sport Center Bradley Whitworth.”This year more than ever, with the high gas prices, groceries, the cost of living really creeping up and kind of taking everybody by surprise, I think it very important to save even the little bit you can save from tax. With eight cents on every dollar, that adds up if you have one or ten. That savings really adds up,” said Bridges.Clothes, shoes, hats, backpacks, and diapers are just some of the items that will be tax free.And for some stores, tax is not the only savings you will receive.”Things like tennis shoes will all be tax free and one sale that we are running is all of our men and women shoes will be at least ten dollars off and all of our youth shoes will be at least five dollars off, that way if they are over $100, with the ten dollars off they will be under $100 and then they will be tax free,” said Whitworth.And store managers say everybody will be working.”This is a huge weekend, we need everybody here we possibly can. So if you work here, you don have off this weekend,” said Whitworth.
