Happy Thanksgiving from Marsha Blackburn

 

Written by Marsha Blackburn
7th District of Tennessee

U.S. CongressWashington, D.C. – On the fourth Thursday of every November, Americans give thanks for many things—but mostly food, family and friendship. This year, I want to personally recognize each of my district’s 19 counties for their individual characteristics, notable citizens, and generous businesses. Thank you, Seventh District. You are wonderful constituents.

If you’re a military veteran in Benton County, you know George Hargrove as the head of all things veteran. Active with the Chamber of Commerce and Benton County Veterans Memorial in Camden, he is a faithful and passionate advocate for our war heroes. Thank you, George, for your leadership and encouragement. You make middle-Tennessee a better place to work and live.

U.S. Congressman Marsha Blackburn

Thanksgiving Day message from Fort Campbell’s Major General Andrew P. Poppas

 

Written by Major General Andrew P. Poppas
Commanding General of the 101st Airborne Division

Fort Campbell KY - 101st Airborne DivisionFort Campbell, KY – “I do, therefore, invite my fellow-citizens in every part of the United States, and also those who are at sea and those who are sojourning in foreign lands, to set apart and observe the last Thursday of November next as a Day of Thanksgiving…”

It was with these words that President Abraham Lincoln proclaimed Thanksgiving a national holiday on October 3rd, 1863. America was embroiled in conflict just like we are now, yet there was much to be thankful for as a nation – “needful diversions of wealth and of strength from the fields of peaceful industry to the national defense…,” as Lincoln described. The same holds true today.

Nashville Predators defeat Montreal Canadiens 3-2 in Shoot-Out

 

Nashville PredatorsNashville, TN – The Nashville Predators won their third consecutive game and eighth of their last nine with a 3-2 victory over the hapless Montreal Canadiens at Bridgestone Arena tonight.

Nashville was on their heels for most of the first period when Jordie Benn gave the Canadiens the lead at 1-0 at 12:47 of the period.  The Predators couldn’t keep the puck in their offensive zone and was playing “chase the puck” for most of the period, but with .08 seconds remaining, Filip Forsberg tied the game on the power play. 

The second period didn’t offer much in the way of offense and the two teams went to the locker room tied at 1-1.
