After a bit of research I have learned that there are two ways, at least, to express your thoughts on the matter.

A Piece of Forever is collecting donations for Toys for Tots

 

apieceofforeverA Piece of Forever, an upscale photo studio located in Historic Downtown Clarksville has a special feel about it. It could be the beautiful photos of their clientèle on display, the lovely Christmas Decorations, or perhaps it is the box of toys sitting near the door. I think it’s a combination of all three.

The store is participating as a collection point in the U.S. Marine Corp’s Toys for Tots Program. The program collects new, unwrapped toys during October, November and December months each year, and distributes them as Christmas gifts to needy children in the community.

WKAG reports antenna installed – Charter calls picture/sound “Good”

 

wkagOn Tuesday, December 1, WKAG officials met with Charter Cable technicians as a new antenna was installed on the Charter Head End Tower on Ford Road in Clarksville. Antenna was installed at proper height (approximately 140 ft) and tuned accordingly.

Upon completion, a very strong signal was picked up at the antenna, and when converted to a television signal on the ground the picture was clear and sharp. Charter technicians responded that both the picture and sound quality were “good”.

To our eye, the signal looked as good as the signals we see in our lobby that are fed directly from either local cable or directly from our distribution equipment in the control room.
