“A Christmas Carol” is the Roxy’s shining Christmas star

 

a-christmas-carolThere’s still one more weekend to view the Roxy Regional Theatre production of Charles Dickens’  “A Christmas Carol.”

John McDonald penned this version of the much-told tale, and takes the leading role with a wicked sense of comic timing as the grumbling “bah humbug” curmudgeon. Whether it’s the growling sneer, the skeptical raised eyebrows, or the shuddering fear of his ghosts, McDonald is magical. And I am betting he had a grand time creating and sustaining this role.

“A Christmas Carol,” for the few who may not know,” is the tale of the miserly Ebenezer Scrooge, greedy, selfish, and completely unconcerned with the fate of, well, everybody. It is only when faced with the loves and losses in his past, the tragedy of the present and the dismal future as unfurled by visiting Christmas Eve  ghosts does Scrooge see the error of his ways. «Read the rest of this article»

Army of Corps of Engineers permit awaiting required information for marina development

 

united_states_army_corps_of_engineers_logoAlthough touted for months as being ready to go, the Clarksville Marina Development Project is still at a substantial standstill. In August it was announced that Fairgrounds Park would be closing in January to facilitate the beginning of dredging operations for the marina’s construction. That is not going to happen just yet.

Clarksville Online has learned that the US Army Corps of Engineers, [USACOE], has not issued the City of Clarksville a permit for dredging operations at the Fairgrounds. Without that permit, no dredging action can take place. The corps received the city’s Clarksville Fairgrounds Marina Application in late November, but it was lacking required information. The permit process is presently on hold. The USACOE expects to receive that information and issue a public notice within the next few months. This will mark the beginning of the process to obtain the dredging permit that will signal the start of construction for the marina. «Read the rest of this article»

Eric “The Preacher” Yow’s Trick Shot Madness  – An Artistic Pool Show was presented at Governor’s Square Mall recently on behalf of  Clarksville Police Department’s  “Operation Turn-Around” program.  Yow, who ranked 5th in the World in Artistic Pool Shooting,  is a lawyer with a local law firm, a preacher, and a world class Artistic Pool Champion.

Trick shots

Operation Turnaround program has been operating for three years and was the brain-child of one of our officers, Officer Tony Marshall.  It targets troubled youth and gets them involved in a myriad of different programs. Many of the youth in the program have been in some sort of trouble with the law and are mandated to enter the program.  There are others which are referred to the program because they are on a pathway which may lead them into the judicial system.

Operation Turnaround sponsors many different programs such as:  youth football teams, basketball, cooking, sewing classes, auto body painting and repairs, mentoring classes, and the list goes on.  The purpose of the program is to provide life skills to the participants, as well as positive role models to influence their lives.
