TWRA reports Whirling Disease Found in Watauga and South Holston Tailwaters

 

Tennessee Wildlife Resources Agency - TWRANashville, TN – Whirling disease was recently discovered by biologists during their annual trout population monitoring in the South Holston and Watauga tailwaters. The discovery is the first known occurrence of this disease in Tennessee.

Whirling disease, a condition caused by a non-native microscopic parasite, affects fish in the trout and salmon family, including rainbow, brook, and brown trout. This parasite can cause damage to the fish’s cartilage and skeletal tissue, resulting in deformities in the head and spine.  They may also develop a black tail, or display “whirling” or erratic tail-chasing behavior.

Youth deserve ability to make an informed decision about their future

 

Written by Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Snow
Commanding General for U.S. Army Recruiting Command

U.S. ArmyFort Knox, KY – Unfortunately, the growing divide between the military and society was apparent last week when a teacher’s inaccurate and misinformed statements about the quality of America’s armed forces made national headlines.

As a U.S. Army officer for more than 30 years, I can tell you our nation’s military services are among the most respected organizations in the world, and the individuals who choose to serve deserve the support of our nation’s people.

About 50 percent of young Americans today admit they know little to nothing about our military. As a nation, we are failing them, and we are failing ourselves.

Roxy Regional Theatre Executive Director Ryan Bowie serves up 40 characters in “Fully Committed” in theotherspace, February 26th-March 6th

 

Clarskville's Roxy Regional TheatreClarksville, TN – Nearly forty characters appear in the latest offering upstairs in the Roxy Regional Theatre’s theotherspace, and all of them are played by Executive Director Ryan Bowie.

Becky Mode’s wildly funny one-man tour de force, “Fully Committed”, plays the 50-seat black-box theatre located upstairs at the Roxy for four evenings only, February 26th – March 6th.

Described by The NY Times “a richly comic affirmation of everything ever heard, or suspected, about the bad behavior that good food can inspire,” the play centers on Sam, a struggling actor who works as a reservation clerk at a chic Manhattan restaurant. Coercion, threats, bribes, histrionics — a cast of desperate callers will stop at nothing in their zeal to land a prime reservation, or the right table.

Ryan Bowie stars in "Fully Committed" in the Roxy Regional Theatre's theotherspace, February 26th through March 6th.
