Tennessee 7th Congressional District Candidate Dan Cramer disappointed with Tennessean Newspaper

 

Chalks endorsement of Blackburn up to a ‘business decision’

Election 2014Clarksville, TN – Gannett’s Nashville paper, the Tennessean, has endorsed the incumbent rather than retired Iraqi War veteran Dan Cramer, in the race for Tennessee’s 7th congressional district. Cramer expressed amusement at the paper’s choice but said he understands how supporting the presumed “safe bet” is a better business decision.

“I am always grateful and honored by any endorsement,” Cramer said, “But one of the realities of politics is that not everyone will agree with you 100% of the time. In the case of the Tennessean’s choice, I can see how their financial interests are better served by endorsing a presumed strong incumbent, but I think there are some interesting inconsistencies in their reasoning.

U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission gives Halloween Safety Tips

 

U.S. Consumer Product Safety CommissionWashington, D.C. – A few safety tips from the U.S. Consumer Product Safety Commission can protect children who plan to go trick-or-treating this Halloween.

Treats: Warn children not to eat any treats before an adult has carefully examined them for evidence of tampering.

Flame Resistant Costumes: When purchasing a costume, masks, beards, and wigs, look for the label Flame Resistant. Although this label does not mean these items won’t catch fire, it does indicate the items will resist burning and should extinguish quickly once removed from the ignition source.

To minimize the risk of contact with candles or other sources of ignition, avoid costumes made with flimsy materials and outfits with big, baggy sleeves or billowing skirts. «Read the rest of this article»
