Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office gives Safety Tips for the Turkey Fryer

 

Tennessee State Fire MarshalNashville, TN – Thanksgiving is a time for families and friends to gather and enjoy a festive day of good food and thanks. For the chief cook, it is a time to show your best dish and wow your hungry guests. It is important to take precautions when preparing a delicious meal especially if you are using a turkey fryer.

Outdoor, gas-fueled fryers cook up juicy turkeys in a fraction of the time it takes to roast one in an indoor oven.

Oil splatters out of a fryer, causing a burst of smoke and flames that can easily burn a house, or even worse, an adult or child.

Clarksville Beginnings – Part 3: What Kind of Man Was Valentine Sevier?

 

Clarksville Tennessee HistoryClarksville, TN – Our lives here in Middle Tennessee are built upon the foundation of those who lived before us. The names of these souls of long ago are sprinkled upon our consciousness as they are now reflected in the names of our counties, cities, and roads: John Montgomery, George Rogers Clark, James Robertson, etc.

They are people who lived the prime of their lives in the late 18th century on the cusp of a new nation, bordering a frontier with a plethora of possibilities. These men are revered and their lives have been boiled down to a thick consistency of stories that all reflect their heroism, bravery, and sometimes larger than life achievements.

There is a definite vibe that they are only to be portrayed as one dimensional hero type characters. Along with that I get the feeling that to declare anything else is pretty much blasphemy.
