Clarksville, TN – The Northeast High School Lady Eagles Track Team will be hosting 3x Olympian, Deedee Trotter for a speaking engagement on Friday November 13th, 2015 at the school’s gymnasium starting at 6:00pm.
Ms. Trotter has participated in the 2004, 2008, and 2012 Olympics. She has won 2 gold medals as a member of the 4x400m relay and a bronze medal in the 400m dash. She is currently training to make her 4th U.S. Olympic Team that will represent the country in Rio, Brazil in August 2016.
Clarksville, TN – The economic data were mixed, but consistent with the theme of global softness and domestic strength. Unit auto sales improved further in September – and, combined with the August data on personal income and spending, suggest that inflation-adjusted consumer spending (70% of GDP) is on track to have expanded at an annual pace of 3.5% to 4.0% in 3Q15.
The trade deficit in goods widened sharply in August, with that split evenly between stronger imports (despite lower oil prices) and weaker exports. Net exports and an inventory correction are expected to subtract significantly from 3Q15 GDP growth, but underlying domestic demand appears to have remained strong.

Fort Campbell, KY – Fort Campbell medics recently competed in the 101st Airborne Division Best Medic Competition. It was a test of medical proficiency as well as soldier skills and raw physical endurance.
Sgt. Gaines Sumrall, a medic from 101st Airborne Division Artillery, and Spc. Kyle Little, a medic with 2nd Battalion, 44th Air Defense Artillery Regiment, 101st Airborne Division Sustainment Brigade, bested other 101st teams and are set to compete in November for the Armywide title of Best Medic.
The medics underwent rigorous testing from September 23rd – 25th to determine which team had the skills to win. Skill alone, however, would not win this competition that emulates the trials Soldiers will face at the Command Sgt. Maj. Jack L. Clark Jr. Best Medic Competition at Fort Sam Houston, Texas.
