Update: On April 22, 2010, A representative from The Rogers Group admitted to an Oakland Hills resident that called on behalf of the Stop The Quarry movement the plot outlined in the satellite photo IS one of the two sites they are considering in the Todd County!
I was called from a neighbor a couple of days ago about a problem that might be arising that will affect all the homes off Exit 1 around the Trenton/Tylertown Roads. She went to Kentucky yesterday to get a plat of where this Quarry will be built. It is shocking how close it is to our subdivisions on the North side of Interstate 24!
Below I have placed a copy of the plat, so you can see if it will affect your area. We understand that this is being built right inside the KY line but they will be using Trenton and Tylertown Road to get to the Hemlock. Not to mention the blasts that will shake all of our homes!
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»

The second day… First of all, from this day out I will refer to Operation Rising Star as ORS. Breaking it down a little. Whew! What a day. It was suppose to rain but it held off and the sun shined through. We started our day going through some vocal group warm ups, learning different technics. We were able to get two of our group songs down for the show. We are above the curve, we were told, and so he gave us a little more time this morning to sleep in. It was a late night.
After our practices on the group numbers we went to eat and then left for Ft. Myers. On the way there we passed the Pentagon and saw the Airforce memorial, the Washington memorial (from afar) and the Arlington Cemetary. I also got a call from Mayor Piper’s office saying the Mr. Piper requested me by name to sing the National Anthem for the Volunteer ceremony that will be going on November 19th, my birthday. I am in VA so I wouldn’t be able to make it. I told her to please keep my name for any future events. She said she would. Anyway, when we arrived at the home of the Army Band, we went into a room with the band that will be playing for our competition. They are DR, short for Down Range. Great group of talented individuals. You have to be, to be in this band! «Read the rest of this article»
It turned out to be a beautiful morning yesterday when we all left the hotel for Ft. Belvoir’s Wallace Theatre at 8:45. This is the home of the Army’s Soldier Show. We weren’t suppose to leave until 8:50, so while we were almost a couple of minutes away, someone counted heads and realized we were missing someone. So we turned around and got Sarah. Poor thing. She was standing on the steps looking at the schedule when we drove up. I would have freaked out! So, we were now all together and on our way.
When we arrived we were given a tour of the stage and was able to walk on it. It is at an angle, so it will be something to get use to when it is time to do our choreography. The reason for the design is to let the audience get a wider view. The set looks awesome and it is a beautiful theatre. «Read the rest of this article»
It’s right around the corner! May 10th. That is 8 days from today! So, you have to get something in the mail by Wednesday to be sure that she will receive it by Saturday or better yet, mail it Monday or Tuesday!
Do you need ideas? Well, I have found a site dedicated to Mother’s Day.
With this being said, I know that it might seem that it isn’t that hard for the women to get something for their Mothers but what about the son? This might be a touchy subject for you men out there but you have to understand how important it is to the Mother, even if she doesn’t show it, to receive something from her child. A lot of times men will leave it up to their wife to get something for their Mom and sign the card but us Mom’s know. We raised you and saw the cards you made us in school. We know the verbiage you use to express your feelings, whether it be much or less. Sometimes a call is all it takes but I want you to picture something…. «Read the rest of this article»
Recently on the local news I heard that the real estate market is taking a turn for the worse once again. As a REALTOR®, I feel you should know that what you hear on the TV news is geared toward their market. The news on channel 2, 4, and 5 is geared toward Nashville. It is not about Clarksville, unless otherwise noted.
As anyone who watches the local real estate market would know, Clarksville is unique. We have frequent turn overs due to military and other support personnel moving in and out. As a result our market is never stagnant. Yes there have been some tough times, but the we are getting through them. Our city was recently ranked the 2nd in the nation as a Safe Haven in real estate. So, if you find that you need to sell your home, you find yourself upside down on a loan due to not owning it long enough, or the neighborhood has deteriorated and so appraisals are now coming in lower than the value of your home, ask a realtor to help. There tools available to them which may be of assistance to you in your individual situation.
So, how is the local market faring? Let’s take a look. We will be comparing in Nashville (Davidson County) vs. Clarksville (Montgomery County) for the months of January, February and March of 2008 and 2009. «Read the rest of this article»

Editor’s note: Although local school systems are closed on Monday, as are many colleges and universities, Austin Peay State University is open for classes on Monday .
This weekend a lot of us are off for a four-day weekend. We are celebrating the birthday’s of two Presidents past. Washington and Lincoln. Washington’s birthday is the federal holiday that will be observed, while Lincoln’s birthday was on February 12 and is a state holiday.
What is Presidents Day?
Washington’s federal holiday, which is originally called Washington’s birthday became Presidents Day in the mid 1980’s to celebrate another President, Lincoln, by advertisers, believe it or not. Lincoln’s birthday was never made into a federal holiday but a state holiday. «Read the rest of this article»
