Thea Agnew was selected to represent Fort Campbell in the 2009 Operation Rising Star CompetitionThe second day… First of all, from this day out I will refer to Operation Rising Star as ORS. Breaking it down a little. Whew! What a day.  It was suppose to rain but it held off and the sun shined through.  We started our day going through some vocal group warm ups, learning different technics.  We were able to get two of our group songs down for the show. We are above the curve, we were told, and so he gave us a little more time this morning to sleep in.  It was a late night.

After our practices on the group numbers we went to eat and then left for Ft. Myers.  On the way there we passed the Pentagon and saw the Airforce memorial, the Washington memorial (from afar) and the Arlington Cemetary.  I also got a call from Mayor Piper’s office saying the Mr. Piper requested me by name to sing the National Anthem for the Volunteer ceremony that will be going on November 19th, my birthday.  I am in VA so I wouldn’t be able to make it. I told her to please keep my name for any future events. She said she would. Anyway, when we arrived at the home of the Army Band, we went into a room with the band that will be playing for our competition.  They are DR, short for Down Range.  Great group of talented individuals.  You have to be, to be in this band! «Read the rest of this article»

State Supreme Court ruling affirms, strengthens securities law


Refutes ignorance of law as viable defense tactic

tngovNashville – The State Supreme Court has upheld the trial court and has overturned the Court of Criminal Appeals’ decision in the State’s action against Michael Casper, an unregistered securities seller.

Casper was initially convicted of 15 counts of willfully selling securities without registering with the state as a broker-dealer or agent in violation of Tennessee Code Annotated section 48-2-109. His unregistered activity cost as many as 150 Tennesseans investors as much as $11.5 million. The trial court imposed concurrent sentences of four years on each count, required 11 months to be served in jail, and ordered 12 years of probation, community service and the payment of fines and restitution. The Supreme Court reinstated the initial conviction thereby safeguarding Tennessee investor protection laws.

“This decision strengthens investor protections in two ways,” says Commerce & Insurance Commissioner Leslie A. Newman. “It affirms the efforts of the Securities Division, as well as the Office of the Attorney General, to crack down on people who attempt to sell securities products without being registered with the State or without registering the products they are selling. And, it requires an unregistered broker to be accountable for their wrongful actions.” «Read the rest of this article»
