Nashville Sounds

Herrera Goes 4-for-5 With Four RBIs For Nashville In Losing Effort

Nashville SoundsDes Moines, IA – The Nashville Sounds squandered an early eight-run lead en route to suffering a heartbreaking 12-11 loss to the Iowa Cubs on Sunday afternoon at Principal Park.

Nashville (20-17) — which has led in eight of its 12 road losses this season — held leads of 8-0 and 11-4 in the game but did most of its damage early, scoring just once in the final six innings against the Iowa bullpen as the I-Cubs mounted their rally. Iowa scored five runs in the sixth and three in the eighth to complete its improbable comeback.

From One “Failing” Mom to Another, Happy Mother’s Day

 

Kris WolfeClarksville, TN – Mother’s Day. It sounds possessive, as if we, the moms of the world, actually own the day. A day for mothers. We get what we want. It’s all about us, right?

For as long as a I have been a mother of two boys that are two years and eight months apart, way too close in size, and way too far apart in attitude, I have asked for the same Mother’s Day gift: for the boys to be nice and get a long for the entire day.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of May 11th, 2014

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – The economic data calendar was thin. The ISM Non-Manufacturing Index was stronger than expected, but the details of the report, including comments from supply managers, suggested that growth was not especially strong.

In her congressional testimony, Fed Chair Janet Yellen said that “although real GDP growth is currently estimated to have paused in the first quarter of this year, I see that pause as mostly reflecting transitory factors, including the effects of the unusually cold and snowy winter weather,” adding “many recent indicators suggest that a rebound in spending and production is already under way, putting the overall economy on track for solid growth in the current quarter.”

Soldiers train for decisive action

 

Written by Staff Sgt. Christopher Klutts
20th Public Affairs Detachment

US Army Special Operations CommandFort Polk, LA – An American man has a heart attack on the third floor of a hotel that doubles as an evacuee holding area. Protestors chant for change outside a U.S. consulate. A small village is struck with measles and enemy artillery rocks a city – all of this happens between lunch and dinner.

By design, training scenarios are complex at the Joint Readiness Training Center in Fort Polk, LA. Hundreds of role-players assume fake identities and mill around a mock foreign country. Its landscape is dotted with towns and villages, the names of which change based on the real-world region a unit might operate in.
