Put Schools in the Forefront of Your Charitable Giving This Year


It’s no secret that the downturn in the economy has hit everyone, not the least of which are public schools. The amount of money provided by the State of Tennessee has been cut dramatically, not only to the school system but to raises for teachers.

What can you do to help?

First, be aware that schools need assistance in forms other than through monetary donations. Your volunteering can be a great benefit. Here are some ways you can help: being a parent contact for your child’s homeroom, painting a hall or classroom, assisting with gardening, assembling materials, working at special days at school (picture day, field day, the walk-a-thon, Read Across America Day, awards days, Book Fair, Teacher Appreciation Week, etc.), and volunteering to help a child read or work on math facts.

Film Noir Fest 2 at Belcourt Theatre


I am a big fan of Film Noir movies, and really enjoyed the Belcourt’s last Film Noir fest. And they are at it again, this time with only French and British films. The line up looks really good.

The first movie is one of my favorite’s, “The Third Man.” I saw it Thursday evening and it was great to see it on the big screen. I attended the 5 o’clock show and was pleasantly surprised at the attendance, at least 40- or so. For those that missed it, I believe this film is available at the Clarksville-Montgomery County Library.  The film “Peeping Tom” looks promising (1960), as does the 1970 “Get Carter” with Michael Caine. The film fest runs through March 11. Check out their website for movie info, including pricing, times and movie trailers. «Read the rest of this article»
