Titans name Gray Defensive Corrdinator

 

Tennessee TitansNashville, TN – The Tennessee Titans named Jerry Gray as defensive coordinator.

Gray joins the Titans after spending one season as the secondary coach with the Seattle Seahawks. He spent five years as defensive coordinator with the Buffalo Bills from 2001-05. His defenses in 2003 and 2004 each ranked second in the NFL for yards allowed, and both were rated in the top 10 in points allowed. His 2004 defense led the NFL in takeaways with 39 and ranked fifth in red zone defense.

“Jerry has a number of qualities that I think are assets for this role: he played the game, he coached a position group and he has coordinating experience,” said Titans head coach Mike Munchak. “I respected him as a player and coach and he was someone that I knew right away that I wanted to talk to about the position. It was evident to me during interview process that he will fit well with us – he is familiar with our system and the type of players that we have on the roster. He is a great teacher and a great person, and I think the players will respond well to his style.” «Read the rest of this article»

Customs House Museum to host Women’s History Month Exhibit

 

The Customs House Museum and Cultural CenterClarksville, TN – The Customs House Museum unveils its third annual Women’s History Month exhibition on March First with the Ladies First. This two-fold exhibit features beautiful vintage clothing and accessories from the museum collection, enhanced by works of Tennessee women artists. Each work of art is a self portrait symbolizing where the women see themselves as a female and artist at this moment of time.

The artists include women ranging from art students to nationally known professionals. Curator Terri Jordan states, “Last year, we brought in very talented contemporary artists and let them select the pieces they wanted to exhibit. The result was a very cohesive presentation of two and three dimensional works, many dealing with social issues of our time. This year, I wanted to create a more personal and intimate exhibit. These women run the gamut of ages and styles, but will be creating under a common theme.”

Where There Is Sadness, Let Me Sow Joy

 

Author’s Note: This is the sixth (and last) of a series of articles based on the prayer of St. Francis of Assisi beginning, “Lord, make me an instrument of your peace.”

St. Francis of Assisi

St. Francis of Assisi

I am the music teacher in an elementary school that serves approximately 500 children. Few people think of a school as a microcosm of society but that is exactly what it is.

Every day I see children whose emotions run the gamut from intense joy to deep sadness.

I see children who have lost one or both parents, some who have never lived with a birth parent but are lovingly cared for by other relatives or a foster parent. I see children from homes where parents attempt to be the best parents on earth. I see children from homes where parents think nothing of having fierce arguments in front of their children on a regular basis. I see children from homes where someone may not be happy that there is a child as part of the family.

The economic calendar was thin. The December trade deficit was narrower than expected, implying (all else equal) a small upward revision to the fourth quarter GDP growth figure. Consumer sentiment edged up in the mid-February reading, still relatively low by historical standards.

In testimony to the House Budget Committee, Fed Chairman Bernanke repeated that “we have seen increased evidence that a self-sustaining recovery in consumer and business spending may be taking hold,” but continued to caution that “it will be several years before the unemployment rate has returned to a more normal level.” He said that the Federal Open Market Committee will continue to review its current asset purchase program, but gave no indication that the program (which is set to finish at the end of June) would be cut short. «Read the rest of this article»
