Odom: ‘The court has ruled. Goins, Hargett do your job!’

House Democratic Leader Gary Odom

House Democratic Leader Gary Odom

Nashville – House Democratic Leader Gary Odom Thursday renewed his call for fair elections in Tennessee by calling on the secretary of state to “do his job” after a state court issued a ruling confirming that state law requires the implementation of paper ballot machines for the 2010 elections to comply with the Voter Confidence Act of 2008.

Odom cited the following ruling from Chancellor Russell Perkins in Davidson County Chancery Court:

“The court finds that the Tennessee Voter Confidence Act does not require the voting system to be implemented by the state of Tennessee to meet 2005 standards,” wrote Perkins.

“The court determines that the state is obligated to take prompt, effective steps to meet the statutory deadline using compliant voting systems.” «Read the rest of this article»

WKAG disputes Charter’s attempted justification for their removal of Channel 3


wkagApproximately three weeks ago, Charter Communications removed WKAG TV from its cable lineup in Clarksville, Tennessee, after 17 years.

WKAG was the only station on the lineup that has consistently covered events in the Clarksville market since the mid-90’s, and included the coverage in newscasts, sports coverage, weather, public affairs and the all important information and updates that flow daily from Fort Campbell.

Many reasons have been given for this drop, with the primary one being a signal strength issue from our transmitter once Charter decided to drop the fiber optic feed that they had provided to get the signal for over ten years.

WKAG does not dispute the signal issue question, which we began to alleviate the moment we first heard about channel loss possibility. «Read the rest of this article»

Home-Canned Apple Pie Filling


ApplePieFillingApple season is pretty much over in Clarksville, but you can still find a few bushels of apples here and there for sale.  If you find them for a great price, you can do lots of things to preserve them.  Some of the ways I preserve apples are:

  1. Drying
  2. Wrapping and storing fresh
  3. Apple Butter
  4. Canning with a pie filling

I’ll show you how to dry apples, make apple butter and even make decorations with dried apples in future articles and how to store fresh apples all winter in another. Today I want to share this delicious pie filling recipe. You’ll love having it in your pantry this winter.

If you have never canned anything at home, you will want to find and purchase a Ball Bluebook Guide to Preserving before you attempt these instructions. Home canning is fun and helps save money, but it must be done correctly to keep your family safe from botulism and to keep yourself from getting burned or injured in the process. «Read the rest of this article»
