Clarksville Post Offices to remain open thanks to lawmakers


Clarksville Montgomery County should be thankful to have great lawmakers in Nashville like Senator Tim Barnes and Representative Joe Pitts who both fought very hard from the onset to stop our local post offices from being shutdown.

Having a small newborn at Christmas makes yearly festivities a little more challenging. Decorating for Christmas is certainly one of those challenges. My husband came home that night to find that Christmas had exploded all over the living room and on every counter top. I was sitting chest deep in cardboard, tissue paper and tinsel looking frantically for the most important part of our tabletop nativity scene, the Baby Jesus. “I can’t find him!” I exclaimed. “Baby Jesus is missing from the nativity scene!” David assured me he’d turn up somewhere, and commented that the rest of the house looked very nice. “Thanks.” I grumbled not really able to accept the compliment, and defiantly not seeing the beauty in it myself.

This was the year I was going to start the Advent calendar with Elle-Girl.

This was the year she would begin to form an impression of what Christmas really is.
