Army of Corps of Engineers permit awaiting required information for marina development


united_states_army_corps_of_engineers_logoAlthough touted for months as being ready to go, the Clarksville Marina Development Project is still at a substantial standstill. In August it was announced that Fairgrounds Park would be closing in January to facilitate the beginning of dredging operations for the marina’s construction. That is not going to happen just yet.

Clarksville Online has learned that the US Army Corps of Engineers, [USACOE], has not issued the City of Clarksville a permit for dredging operations at the Fairgrounds. Without that permit, no dredging action can take place. The corps received the city’s Clarksville Fairgrounds Marina Application in late November, but it was lacking required information. The permit process is presently on hold. The USACOE expects to receive that information and issue a public notice within the next few months. This will mark the beginning of the process to obtain the dredging permit that will signal the start of construction for the marina. «Read the rest of this article»

Cranberry fruit on the vine

Cranberries. Once upon a time in American history they were called “Craneberries.”  So many people walk past the basket of this hard red fruit, not quite sure of what to do with the berries, culled from watery bogs in places like Cape Cod, Massachusetts, the Canadian Maritimes, or in land-locked Wisconsin.

Cranberries are a group of evergreen dwarf shrubs or trailing vines found in acidic bogs throughout the cooler parts of the Northern Hemisphere. Cranberries are low, creeping shrubs or vines with wiry stems and small evergreen leaves. The flowers are dark pink.

Cranberries, a major commercial crop in certain American states and Canadian provinces, are processed into products such as juice, sauce, and sweetened dried cranberries, with the remainder sold fresh to consumers. «Read the rest of this article»
