Prove It Clarksville: Day Six: Workin’ Man Blues

 

An exercise in homelessness.

Clarksville, TN – Hi, I missed you!

I’m sorry these two days are late, but I worked a couple of side jobs the last two nights—and on top of sneaking in and out of camp, riding the bus, and standing on my street corners as long as possible, it made for a couple of very long days. In fact, Friday night I got only five hours of sleep, if you can call it that. I’m still not used to this hard ground.

As I’m writing this, I can sense some of you rolling your eyes all the way back into your head (they’re making sounds almost like a slot machine). You’re thinking, “I knew it! I knew he’d sell out!—He’s working, and the homeless are lazy—they don’t work!”

Clarksville City Council Fiscal Year 2014 Budget Wrap Up, July 17th 2013

 

Clarksville City Council - Ward 10Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Police – In my June 9th report I mentioned that I tried to add 8 police officer positions for 2014 (4 in the 3rd qtr./4 in the 4th qtr.). That effort failed in a 6-6 tie vote in which Mayor McMillan voted “no” to kill the amendment.

It initially appeared the cost might have made a possible vote difference at almost $228,000 to add these officers. I made another effort to add officers by requesting five (5) positions in the 4th qtr. of the 2014 budget. The cost was reduced by almost half to $115,070 and I hoped that might sway a vote for support. «Read the rest of this article»

Suzanne Simpson: One Woman’s Heart-Part Four

 

David overheard the doctors talking in the hallway.  The weather was so bad, it was doubtful that the helicopter could fly and the Vanderbilt Extraction Team could retrieve the heart.  They would classify this as a “dry run” and let Suzanne go home.

David went back into the room to be with his wife.  Doctors and nurses were attending to her, monitoring her condition.

Just as the surgical team was about to call the operation off, a member of the medical team burst into the room.

“They’ve taken off.  It’s a go!”
