Thumbs Up for a Special Feline Family!

 

Humane Society of Clarksville – Montgomery County (HSCMC)Clarksville, TN – Will extra toes guarantee forever homes for members of this rescued kitty family? We hope so! The extra toe is a spontaneous genetic mutation called polydactylism. Ernest Hemingway, renowned American novelist, was known for keeping polydactyl cats at his home in Key West, Florida. Even today, ancestors of his pets stroll through the grounds of his home, now a tourist attraction. There is a foundation that cares for the cats and manages their numbers through selective spaying and neutering to ensure the continuity of this colony.

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

The week began with concerns on the international front. International Monetary Fund (IMF) managing Director, and potential French presidential candidate, Dominique Strauss-Kahn, was arrested over the weekend on charges of sexual battery and resigned a few days later. The change in leaderships at the IMF (and potential struggle to select a new #1) adds to the uncertainty about Europe’s debt crisis and the news added to the recent volatility in the financial markets. The minutes of the April 26-27 FOMC meeting had a slightly hawkish tilt. The minutes showed that “a majority of participants now judged the inflation risks as weighted to the upside” and “a few members viewed the increase in inflation risks as suggesting that economic conditions might well evolve in a way that would warrant the Committee taking steps toward less-accommodative policy sooner than currently anticipated.” Note that the presidents of all 12 Fed district banks participate at the FOMC meetings, but only five are members of the FOMC and have a vote on monetary policy. «Read the rest of this article»

Chain Reaction Rocks Strawberry Alley in the First Jammin’ in the Alley Concert of the Year

 

Jammin in the Alley 2011Clarksville, TN – The Journey Tribute band Chain Reaction opened up the first Jammin’ in the Alley concert of the year on Friday night. The free concerts are held by the City of Clarksville’s Department of Parks and Recreation every third Friday from May to October at Strawberry Alley located in Historic Downtown Clarksville.

The weather for the concert was to put it mildly, absolutely perfect. I love early summer weather when it’s not too hot, or too cold.  Perhaps that is one of the reasons that this Jammin’ in the Alley concert had the biggest attendance I have seen. It was wall to wall people with many dancing in front of the stage. The classic Journey songs were well known and people in the audience would sing right along with the band.
