Clarksville, TN – To say it’s been a very contentious couple of years would be a major understatement. Suffice it to say that it seems our great country is divided as bad as I can remember. Being stationed overseas during the sixties, I was far removed from the Civil Rights movement, and the riots and demonstrations that were so prevalent.
Now with the internet and social media, it seems that not only are we all just a “click” away from instant news, fake and otherwise, but we are also able to connect with our favorite rock stars, actors, entertainers and politicians. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – I spent my career in the spotlight. Forty years in broadcasting. The last eighteen years as the owner of a radio station, and the host of a morning talk show. I was right in the middle of everything.
Over the course of my career, I “hob-knobbed” with the rich and famous. Rock stars, politicians, entertainers and more. There was nobody I couldn’t hang out with. There wasn’t a politician or public official I couldn’t interview.
Clarksville, TN – If you know me, you know I’ve recently bought a motorcycle. Late last year I became the proud owner of a Harley-Davidson Street Glide Special.
IT. IS. AWESOME!
Now, if you’re a biker, you know how I feel, if you’re not, then don’t wait any longer to answer the call of the open road. You only live once so don’t put it off. If you’ve wanted it, go get it. You won’t regret it.
Clarksville, TN – It’s finally here: opening weekend for Fifty Shades of Grey, “the hotly anticipated film adaptation of the bestselling book that has become a global phenomenon” (Fandango).
I confess that I didn’t want to write this post, but as opening weekend crept closer and closer, it became more and more obvious that a lot of the folks who will be standing in line to see this film are Christians. And I can’t keep silent about that. Therefore, this post is for believers (and not just women; according to MovieTickets.com, 80 percent of Valentine’s Day tickets are being purchased by couples).
To Know Whether You Have a Case, You Have to Understand This
Clarksville, TN – When I first started practicing law, my father gave me a lot of advice. He still does, and that makes me very fortunate. Among the pearls of wisdom he shared was this: “Never tell [a prospective client] they don’t have a case.”
His rationale for this rule, as I recall, was something like this: Even lawsuits with very little merit are often brought by unscrupulous plaintiffs, and their even less scrupulous counsel; but even these dubious claims can result in settlements–sometimes big settlements. This creates the illusion that the plaintiff’s claim had merit. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – When Demetria Kalodimos arrived in Nashville in 1984, little did she know that she had just landed her dream job.
This bright-eyed 23 year old, with a proud Greek heritage, from the suburbs of Chicago, was about to join one of the most storied news organizations in the business, in Nashville, Tennessee, WSMV, Channel 4.
Now, after thirty years as one of Nashville’s most decorated journalists, she has no intention of slowing down.
Nashville, TN – I said I’d be hip. I promised writing about culture and clubs; poetry and songwriters, and maybe even turn you on to the latest dive bar I’ve visited or a hidden-away café full of charm. But then while I wasn’t looking, lights and wreaths went up on Church Street, 2nd Avenue took on an even more twinkly golden glow, and Printers Alley became bejeweled with lights and blown-up Santas.
Since we last met here, we were catapulted headlong into the Christmas season. And we all know Christmas isn’t hip. «Read the rest of this article»
Nashville, TN – Hello to the readers of Clarksville Online! My name is Sandee Gertz and I’m a writer, poet, and distracted observer of everything by the side of the road. And in my new Music City home in the middle of Downtown Nashville, I’ve found there is plenty to excite, inspire, shock, and plain old fascinate here in the most urban place I’ve ever lived.
The diversity of the music, culture, art (and street life) is endless.
It’s Time to Repeal Clarksville’s Good Ol’ Boys’ Liquor Store Permit Law
Clarksville, TN – The Tennessean recently reported that certain folks in Clarksville are questioning the merit of having a limit of only a dozen liquor stores that can be allowed to legally operate in Clarksville at any one time.
The out-dated fifty-year-old city ordinance has created an artificial market for “certificates of compliance,” not to mention creating in the local liquor market an oligopoly (the market condition that exists when there are few sellers, as a result of which they can greatly influence price and other market factors).
Both the local liquor oligopoly and the market for “certificates of compliance” hurt Clarksville’s local economy. «Read the rest of this article»
Clarksville, TN – “Ms. Grace, you ask hard questions.”
The little girl living on a farm in rural Sumner County, Tennessee does ask hard questions. Innocent and inquisitive, Grace lives in a world where the Civil War has just ended and the devastated South is entering Reconstruction. Grace directly questions why she is surrounded by death and suffering.
Her grandmother tells Grace, “I want you to not think of the evil in this world, honey, because there is plenty of that. You don’t have to look too hard or far for that. Look for the good. Be the good.”
