DIY Countertop Rescue

 

JulesWhen my husband and I found our house in Clarksville this past November, we knew it was the home for us. It had so many excellent features: spacious living area; big backyard; and  in a great school zone, for when our son starts kindergarten. But as soon as I stepped into the kitchen, I knew one thing… those countertops had to go!

In terms of functionality, our countertops were fine. They were good enough to hold small appliances and prepare food on, but after years of use and abuse, there were a couple of burn holes and lots of discoloration. Not to mention they were utterly plain beige, with no personality.

Civil War Ball offers an enchanting evening

 

The Friends of Fort DefianceThe Friends of Fort Defiance held their first Civil War Ball at the Smith Trahern mansion on Saturday evening. While the group has not yet officially discussed it, group President Phyllis Smith hopes that this will become an annual event, and quite possibly a new tourist attraction for the City of Clarksville, as this inaugural evening drew one couple all the way from Illinois.

All of the guests were required to be attired in a period costume, and those who did not have one available, were able to rent one from George Terrell, the owner of Backstage Costume Rental. Because of the additional required expense of renting a costume, the Friends of Fort Defiance kept the cost of tickets for the event fairly low, only $30 per person, for a night of dinner and dancing.

The Friends of Fort Defiance holding Living History Encampment at Rotary Park

 
The Friends of Fort Defiance

The Friends of Fort Defiance

With Fort Defiance being closed due to the construction of the new interpretative center, the Friends of Fort Defiance were forced to move the Living History Encampment, one of their signature events to Rotary Park this year.

The primary purpose of the Living History Encampment is to educate people about the history of Clarksville, and the Civil War. Many people living in Clarksville know absolutely nothing about the history of our city, something the friends of Fort Defiance hope to change. Clarksville is located in an area of intense activity during the Civil war,   with Fort Donelson and Fort Henry  in nearby Stewart County, and the city of Nashville just a short distance up river.  Fort Defiance was intended to help guard the river approaches to Nashville.

Tanner to hold telephone town hall meeting on August 31st

 

tannerheaderWashington D.C.– U.S. Rep. John Tanner will continue to seek input from 8th Congressional District families through telephone town hall meetings where West and Middle Tennesseans can ask questions on health care, the economy, energy and other issues facing the country.

Telephone town hall meetings are a relatively new format to allow up to thousands of participants to talk together so families from across our district can share their views and hear Congressman Tanner’s remarks on issues of mutual concern. A tele-town hall meeting is one of the best tools for Members of Congress and others to reach thousands of constituents at one time.

“The challenges facing Tennessee and our country are some of the toughest issues we have ever addressed together and require thoughtful discussion focused on solutions,” Congressman Tanner said. “As always, we are anxious to hear what is on the minds of Tennesseans so we can represent and share their views when Congress returns to session.” «Read the rest of this article»

APSU has confirmed cases of flu, suspected to be H1N1

 

Austin Peay State University LogoAustin Peay State University officials received word late Thursday afternoon and again Friday afternoon that two commuter students are suspected of having H1N1, commonly referred to as “swine flu.” However, the University cannot verify if the illness is H1N1. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) is advising physicians to assume that if a person has flu-like symptoms or tests positive for flu at this time of year, it is likely H1N1, and isn’t advising further testing. Both students have been advised to stay home.

The University has formed a task force consisting of 22 faculty, staff and student representatives including faculty with expertise in public health, microbiology and epidemiology. The task force is planning and implementing procedures for preventing the spread of the virus on campus and developing action plans for various scenarios in the event of a campus wide epidemic.
