Fight the Good Fight, Finish the Race, Wear the Right Pants

 

Semi-daily preaching by a Semi-daily Preacher on a semi-daily basis

Greg Lee as Brother Preacher

Beware: “Right” pants required.
My guess is I won’t able to walk for…let’s say 3 days. Maybe a week.

I love bike riding. Early, with friends, in the country – the best.

Of course, the REASON I probably won’t be walking much the next few days is BECAUSE I went riding this morning. Early, with friends, in the country. Which as you know, I love.

But THIS morning I made the mistake of doing it without what is called: the “right” pants.

This was a mistake.

Note to self: To ride a 400 mile route without the proper attire, in this case, padded bike shorts, is very close to subjecting yourself to slow-cooked capital punishment…with a hot poker. «Read the rest of this article»

101st Sustainment Brigade - LifelinersFort Campbell KY, 101st Airborne DivisionBagram Airfield, Afghanistan – As with any military worldwide, the Afghan national army is more than just “boots on the ground,” as it offers a variety of trades and skills that are necessary to keep it running efficiently.

That is what 10 of its soldiers of the 201st Corps Logistical Kandak and the 5th Combat Service Support Kandak, 201st Corps, Afghan national army are learning during their maintenance course here at Bagram Air Field.

Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan’s letter regarding the FY2012 Budget

 

Clarksville Office of the Mayor - Kim McMillan

June 9, 2011

 

Dear Council Members and Citizens of Clarksville:

 The budget process provides an annual opportunity to examine the City’s performance and our community’s economic health.  Through the budget process, we have the ability to review what we did right and wrong in the current budget, assess our strengths and weaknesses, and plan for future opportunities and challenges that face the community of Clarksville.  As your new Mayor, I have stated that my Administration will be transparent and open about our priorities and goals and that I will keep both the City Council and our citizens apprised of the City’s ongoing projects and our financial condition.  Despite serving 12 years on the Tennessee House Finance, Ways and Means Committee and having a good understanding of governmental accounting, I think you can appreciate that with an overall City budget in excess of $418 million in one of the fastest growing Cities in Tennessee, that it has taken a few months for me to review all the areas included in the City’s budget.  Therefore this budget will serve not only as the annual budget, but as my first update on the status of City projects and City finances. «Read the rest of this article»
