According to the weather channel we are in the “Winter’s Triple Threat”. Are you ready for this storm? As of 8:30 pm Thursday night, Nashville is supposed to get over a foot by the time it is all finished on Sunday! Clarksville is north of Nashville, so we are probably looking in the range of possibly 12-18 inches. Hopkinsville, KY which is only 20 minutes away from Exit 1 in Clarksville is said to have approximately 18 inches! (I cannot believe these numbers have been broadcast!)
Clarksville has been gearing up for this storm that is 1700 miles long since wednesday by putting down the salt or brine. The roads will be dangerous, so please stay off of them. There has even been concerns of power outages. As I was in Wal-Mart this afternoon, I ran into a lot of my friends who were getting ready for the storm that will keep us indoors. They even mentioned the fact that we might lose our electric. There is always a possibility. Those without a fireplace, do you know how you would stay warm if the electric is to go out? «Read the rest of this article»

Parents reminded that children under age 10 need two doses
NASHVILLE – The Tennessee Department of Health is reminding parents that children under the age of 10 require two doses of H1N1 flu vaccine in order to be fully immunized against the virus. H1N1 flu vaccine is plentiful in Tennessee and widely available through county health departments and other providers across the state. Tennessee’s county health departments are providing this vaccine at no charge to patients.
“We urge parents not to put off getting their child’s second dose of H1N1 flu vaccine,” said Health Commissioner Susan R. Cooper, MSN, RN. “H1N1 flu activity could continue for months, and this is also the time of year when seasonal flu viruses appear. It’s not too late to get these important vaccinations to be sure your child is protected throughout the flu season.” «Read the rest of this article»

With the city charter being in the news for the past few months, I found a short video of a state committee meeting that I thought should be shared. The video is of the meeting where the committee killed the bill which would have revised Clarksville’s city charter.
The committee members comments are insightful. No representatives from Clarksville’s administration attended this meeting – not the Mayor, not the Council Members that are for the revisions, and not the Council Members that are against the revisions. Representative Curtis Johnson presents the bill alone…and gets hammered with questions.
On April 24th 2010, the Night Stalker Association we will be having their 12th Annual NSA Bass Fishing Tournament. All the money raised in this tournament goes directly to the Nightstalker Association Fund for Children with Terminally Ill Diseases and the Night Stalker Foundation for Children of Fallen Night Stalkers Scholarship Fund.
The tournament is run solely by volunteers and is supported by numerous donations by individuals and companies. This event started in 1998 when a Soldier in the 160th Aviation Life Support Equipment (ALSE) shop with a terminally ill child had a financial need during an unimaginably trying time in his Family’s life.
Last year’s event saw over 160 registered teams and over 800 people who gathered either to fish or to support the Night Stalker Association and the Tournament. It is their hope that this year’s event will far surpass that of last year in both participation and donations. «Read the rest of this article»
