Clarksville, TN – I wanted to take the time to recognize and thank the Citizens of Clarksville for the overwhelming support that you have given this Department.
From private citizens who have taken the time to stop by our precincts to deliver food and drinks, to restaurants delivering entire meals to our Officers on duty. Citizens are constantly thanking Officers personally and even paying for meals without the Officers even knowing who they are.
Alzheimer’s Disease and Dementia
Clarksville, TN – Alzheimer’s disease is an irreversible, progressive brain disorder that slowly destroys memory and thinking skills, and eventually the ability to carry out the simplest tasks.
In most people with Alzheimer’s, symptoms first appear in their mid-60s. Estimates vary, but experts suggest that more than 5 million Americans may have Alzheimer’s.
The following poem is for all the caregivers out there.
Nashville, TN – For Rent: I saw the photo of the little cottage house kitchen flashing at me from the screen of my Ipad. It had a warmth I could feel from its vintage 1947 age, but was renovated smartly with granite counters and white painted cabinets.
There was a window above the sink that looked out to a yard (always a rule for every house I’ve ever lived in) with streams of light shining in, and it was there I could see the tree. Thick, old, and jutting up grandly, ignoring the busy road with cars gliding by frequently, and casting shade on the “tear-down-turned modern house” that was going up next door.
Clarksville, TN – It can happen to anyone—a call in the night that a friend or family member has been in an accident and is on the way to the hospital; a two-day scheduled surgery that turns into a major stay in the intensive care unit; or some other emergency that requires your absence from home for a week or more.
Needing to pack when you are under intense stress is a recipe for forgetting some essential that you just couldn’t get on your list at the last minute.
Nashville, TN – Did you ever have the dream where you discover there are other rooms in your house that you knew nothing about? This month marks my third anniversary in Nashville, and I feel a bit like I’ve been living in those “other rooms” for three full years. They are foreign and yet increasingly familiar the longer I stay in the south.
They say Nashville is a “five-year town,” but that’s for songwriters and artists looking to sign a deal. Many musicians mark each year in Music City as a reflective milestone, marking the highs and lows, wins and losses, in a tough, and often unforgiving town. To be honest, I never thought Nashville would even be a six-month town. You see, I never expected to actually live here.
Clarksville, TN – Okay, we all have things that make us crazy. It might be the neighbor next door, our tendency to try to control everything and everyone around us, the world situation, or just the fact that mail carrier keeps putting someone else’s mail in our mailbox.
Whatever it is, each of us needs to have coping mechanisms to keep these annoyances from driving us nuts on a daily basis.
Here are a few ways you can at least turn loose of these irritants for a while.

First, forget making resolutions. You can sit down and make out a list of all the things you think you should do. Chances are, you’re not going to achieve most of them and all these resolutions are going to do is make you feel guilty for not accomplishing them.
Instead, just do it! «Read the rest of this article»
This is the second of a series of articles based on the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi beginning, “Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.”
Clarksville, TN – It is necessary to define the words injury and pardon before talking about them.
According to www.merriam-webster.com, an injury is “an act that damages or hurts; it is a wrong; it is a violation of another’s rights for which the law allows an action to recover damages.” For the purposes of this discussion, we’ll look not at the legal aspects of an injury but at the hurt caused by one’s actions.
Pardon is a word in our society that has been so imbued with legal connotations that it is necessary to completely nullify for this article its legal definition: “the excusing of an offense without exacting a penalty.” We choose instead the dictionary’s definition of “the excuse or forgiveness for a fault, offense, or discourtesy.”
