Three Juveniles Stabbed in Fort Campbell Blvd altercation

 

Clarksville Police DepartmentClarksville, TN – On April 9th, 2011, around 1:00am, there were three juveniles stabbed in a business parking lot at Papa Murphy’s Take ‘n’ Bake (1571 Fort Campbell Blvd).  The details are sketchy, suspect information, and the stories conflicting about the events which led up to the stabbings.

From the limited information we have been able to gather, there were two large groups of girls that got into an argument at another club in Clarksville (we have been unable to validate the name of the club).  The argument continued after the girls left the club, in multiple vehicles, and traveled north on Fort Campbell Blvd. The group was arguing back and forth between the vehicles and a decision was made to pull onto a business parking lot at 1571 Fort Campbell Blvd to fight. «Read the rest of this article»

Our Community Matters

 

Where you learn about your community, and all that we are!

I am thrilled with the opportunity to write about community in this new column “Our Community Matters.” As I sat down to write, I thought of many great topics that I could choose. I kept coming back to how important it is to me to feel connected to my community, to feel that I am a part of making it a better place; to feel I am participating and grounded- that I have roots here. Then it struck me and I realized that the feeling of being a part of something we call community – well, it’s a soul thing. So I thought it would be interesting to do a survey modeled after the Knight Foundation’s “Soul of the Community” Project. The survey helps cities discover what really attaches people to their community. Is it safe streets, great schools, affordable housing, health care access or is it something deeper that draws people to a certain place. What makes them want to put down roots and build a life there? «Read the rest of this article»

Austin Peay State UniversityClarksville, TN – Some 13 years after his untimely death, the artist and musician Tom Malone is still fondly remembered in the Clarksville community.
