Business closings mark a sad time for Clarksville

 
Hank Bonecutter

Hank Bonecutter

With each passing day, things are changing in Clarksville.  One of the best things about our community has been the rich history of family owned businesses.  A couple of them have closed this year and it makes me sad.

Swift Cleaners closed earlier in the year due to the changing trends of society and lack of business.  With locations on Crossland Avenue and Wilma Rudolph Boulevard, Swift Cleaners had been a Clarksville mainstay.

My family had a rich history in the cleaning business as my late grand father John Johnson owned the Clarksville Laundry.  At the time, it was one of the biggest businesses in town, and Johnson was a pillar of the community. «Read the rest of this article»

The Weekly Market Snapshot from Frazier Allen for the week of November 18th

 

Weekly Market Snapshot

Market Commentary by Scott J. Brown, Ph.D., Chief Economist

Scott J. Brown Ph.D., Chief Economist Raymond James Investment Services

The economic data reports were mostly stronger than expected, consistent with moderate growth in the near term. Retail sales rose more than the consensus forecast in October. Industrial production picked up, partly reflecting an increase in mining, but automobile production improved. Residential construction numbers were mixed, but suggested a modest uptrend in single-family activity (still at very low levels). As expected, the October inflation reports reflected lower energy prices. Core inflation was mild.

Tensions continued to heat up in Europe, with increased calls for the European Central Bank to step in as the lender of last resort. However, the ECB continues to reject that role. Borrowing costs for Italy, Spain, and France rose, but fell back a bit at the end of the week, as Greece and Italy made some progress in addressing their budget situations. «Read the rest of this article»
