Clarksville Beginnings: The Early History of Sevier Station – Part 1

 

Clarksville Tennessee HistoryClarksville, TN – Have you seen the old stone building on Walker Street in the New Providence area? If not, come by and take a look at it some time. This primitive looking building, labeled “Sevier Station”, is on the National Register of Historic Places and is touted as the oldest building in Montgomery County, Tennessee.

As you walk around and gaze at the roughhewn limestone quarried from the nearby bluffs, and ponder the old chimney placed oddly in the center of the building, and consider the apparent gun port built into the east side, may you contemplate the ground upon which you are standing.

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – What a week. Concerns about the downside risks to Europe and the rest of the world pushed global equity markets down and the U.S. followed. The economic data mattered little for the most part, but disappointing retail sales figures added to the drop in U.S. stocks on Wednesday.

Yields on long-term Treasuries sank sharply. Following a few days of elevated volatility, the financial markets appeared to settle down on Friday.

Clarksville Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of October 7th, 2014

 

F&M Investment Services - Raymond James - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – There were plenty of economic data reports, but the financial markets mostly obsessed about other things (quarter–end positioning, soft global growth, geopolitical tensions, Ebola). The headline figures from the employment report were better than expected, a positive for stocks and a negative for bonds.

Nonfarm payrolls rose by 248,000 in September, while the two previous months were revised a net 69,000 higher. Some of the strength reflected a rebound from special factors that had reduced the August total.

Clarksville City Councilwoman Kaye Jones wants the Council Race Campaign based on Facts

 

Written by Kaye Jones
Clarksville City Councilwoman for Ward 11

Election 2014Clarksville, TN – One candidate for City Council Ward 11 is continuously using words in his campaign against Councilwoman Kaye Jones like “civility, hostility, bickering and fighting” as he campaigns.

He has implied on many occasions this is activity that Councilwoman Kaye Jones is involved in. One should be very suspicious of very general negative accusation of this nature during a political campaign when the candidate has never made specific references to dates and time on the City Council Meeting Video’s where one may witness this activity by accused Councilwoman Kaye Jones.
