Event Brings 1,112; Generates $131,772 in Visitor Spending
Clarksville, TN – More than 1,100 athletes, coaches, and spectators visited Clarksville on Saturday, October 8th for the Class A and AA Boys and Girls Cross Country State Championships.

In fact, I knew that it would not be easy long before I ever married the first time at the age of 21, because growing up I had been a stepchild. My step-dad adopted me, and he is a great dad, but it still made for the same dynamics of a blended family. No matter the legal status of your family, when families form later in the game, there is much to learn and overcome!
I met my bachelor child-free husband in 2006. I had been divorced for a year; my boys were 3 and 6 years old. In 2010, we married, officially creating a blended family. My oldest read 1 Corinthians and our youngest prayed for us at our ceremony. It seemed quite unique among our friends, but these days, about a third of all marriages create a blended family.

Clarksville, TN – In the midst of global change and economic recovery, on the home front families continue to be affected by cancer, touching lives in communities across the country. An equal opportunity disease, various forms of cancer affect both the young and old, people of all ethnicities, on all socio-economic levels.
These realities make the dollars donated and volunteer hours devoted to the American Cancer Society—a part of Clarksville for many years—critically important. Local volunteers are a huge part of a nationwide effort to save lives from cancer, but additional people are needed for the progress to continue.
