Washington, D.C. – The IRS’s annual ‘Dirty Dozen’ list includes common tax scams that often peak during the tax filing season. The IRS recommends that taxpayers be aware so they can protect themselves against claims that sound too good to be true.
Taxpayers who buy into illegal tax scams can end up facing significant penalties and interest and even criminal prosecution. «Read the rest of this article»
Every year Byron asks me, “What day is Valentine’s on this year?”
Every year I respond, “Still on the 14th…” Oh, poor thing…

Clarksville TN – A University of Rhode Island study funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH), found the weight loss drug Orlistat, which goes by the prescription brand name Xenical and the over-the-counter name Alli, can cause “severe toxicity” to major internal organs.
Because the drug has been approved since 1999, we have to wonder how many people lost their lives during that time and were treated for liver and kidney disease because of this medication? «Read the rest of this article»

This week, the campaign for the Tennessee State Senate turned ugly when the Tennessee Democratic Party and Senator Tim Barnes used Clarksville’s Gateway Medical Center to attack Republican Dr. Mark Green.
It made our entire community look ugly.
In a direct mail advertisement sent to voters in the 22nd district, the mailer “implies” that Dr. Green, during his tenure there, was contributing to Gateway’s performance, as reported in a Consumer Reports article listing the Clarksville hospital as “ranked 37th, lowest in the state.” «Read the rest of this article»
The day before our Tennessee primary election, Ted Cruz overcame overwhelming odds to win the run off election for U.S. Senate in Texas. Mr. Cruz did not have the endorsements of the establishment, anywhere close to the money of his opponent, but he won handily with 57% of the vote.
Thursday in two Middle Tennessee races there were two candidates who were funded and endorsed by the GOP establishment, yet were soundly defeated by candidates with zero political experience, few endorsements, and very little money. I am referring to Tennessee House races: Lauri Day in District 74 and LTC Courtney Rogers in the 45th District. «Read the rest of this article»
With the firing of Karen Josephson as the Montgomery County Animal Control director, an already serious problem is getting worse. It’s a very emotional and political issue, and it won’t get any better until we all take responsibility for our pets.
Josephson was fired over some administrative shortcomings, and missing receipts, but what she was really fired for, in my opinion, was bringing too much publicity to the problem, and having a big heart.

The daily reminder that this is a serious problem, and only getting worse, was too much for the mayor. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – Ward 1 Clarksville City Councilman Nick Steward has come clean.
While being interviewed on my talk show, “Clarksville in Review,” Nick admitted to stealing from the Army, and being kicked out because of it. He also admitted to receiving a DUI in Arkansas in 2010, before he was elected to the council in November of the same year.
According to a background check provided by the Common Sense Coalition, Nick has had his fair share of legal problems, and questions have swirled around him since he first burst onto the Clarksville political scene. «Read the rest of this article»
