Dunbar Cave State Park - Clarksville TNClarksville, TN – Another successful Cooling at the Cave was held Saturday July 26th.  As in the old days, everyone gathered around the cave’s entrance to listen to the music and to let the constant cool breeze blowing from the mouth of the cave cool them off. Before air conditioning, locals gathered at the cave to cool off and have fellowship with others.

The entertainment this year was again provided by the extremely popular Cumberland Wind Jazz Project. They played big band music from the 1930′s to 1960′s. Several events goers took to the dance floor and enjoyed themselves greatly.

Prove It Clarksville: Day Ten: Crayons and Copper

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – The biggest event of this day was that I got to take a shower. It was the first one since last Wednesday night, and trust me that it was a worship experience in itself—not to mention using a real toilet and not feeling rushed. Oh, the things we take for granted.

You know, there are a lot of talented people riding the bus, living in shelters, or even sleeping in tents and under bridges. Yesterday morning at the bus stop, I noticed a young man with a sketchpad and pencils.

APSU to host 2nd Gov Color Run September 27th, 2014

 

Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – Last September, several sane and reasonable Austin Peay State University students closed their eyes and intentionally ran through clouds of non-toxic colored starch.

When they emerged from the haze, their hair was green, their skin was blue and their clothes were covered in splotches of yellow. And, more importantly, almost all of them were smiling.
