Winter’s night sky over Clarksville

 

The cold air sweeping in from the northwest pushed away the storminess of the day, leaving behind a scattering of deep clouds to be burnished by the setting sun. The air at first held a golden glow, then shifted to a glowing fuschia color streaked with gold, akin to the glow of a candle flickering through cranberry glass.

“Baby, it’s cold outside…”

 

frozen-thermometer“Baby it’s cold outside” is the song of the day, of the week,  as the early onslaught of cold weather seems to be settling in for the winter season with cold heavy rains Wednesday and a surge of frigid air today that turned lingering showers into spurts of sleet and possible snow showers later tonight. Even moderating temperatures on Sunday, when the high is expected to hover in the low 50s, will be short lived.

The greater Clarksville area seems to have skipped autumn altogether, moving strait from hot humid lingering 80s to winter. The proof is in the mittens, mufflers, wool caps, boots  and winter parkas popping up all over town. Even a quick sprint from parked car to supermarket entrance requires a bit of bundling. Waiting for a bus can be a challenge in this blustery cold weather. «Read the rest of this article»

Hysteria over Barack Obama’s birth certificate escalates to lunacy

 

obama-birth-certificateThe continuing hysteria about President-Elect Barack Obama’s birth certificate has surfaced in Montgomery County in very disturbing ways. Comments to a news story about the Illinois Gov. Blagojevich have leaked over to include this subject. With all the evidence which has been presented on the matter, it defies logic that people are still clinging to these specious claims.

Hawaii birth certificates are not public records, as they are in other states. The Hawaiian Health Dept. Director and Registrar of Vital Statistics have verified that the health department holds Obama’s original birth certificate. Furthermore, they have verified that he was born in Hawaii, and is a natural born US citizen. Lastly, Hawaii state law bars release of a certified copy of a birth certificate to anyone who does not have a tangible interest in it. «Read the rest of this article»
