I asked the mayor were we proceeding with the Tennessee Department of Transportation plan as described by Representative Curtis Johnson (using the right-of-way that the state owned, the state funding the $1.3 million price tag, etc) or were we looking at the plan quoted by Councilman Burkhart that would require additional money from either the city or somewhere else to buy land to give it to the state and have them move the exit ramp to intersect with Sango Road. «Read the rest of this article»

Clarksville, TN – The other item I wished to comment on for your info and consideration are efforts to fix traffic problem at Exit 11. Many of you know that my efforts to gain stoplights at the Sango Road – MLK/Hwy 76 intersection go back to 2000. A study effort request that I submitted on behalf of several neighborhoods back at that time did not support stoplights.
After being elected to the council in 2007, I made another request to have the area looked for traffic volume and stoplight needs. Again the study did not support the need. Around 2009 I again asked for a study from the state and it was performed. It showed a greater volume of traffic but not for enough hours of the day. «Read the rest of this article»
Cold rainy weather can’t dampen the spirits of returning Soldiers and their Families
Fort Campbell, KY – On a cold rainy night 102 soldiers from the 194th Military Police Company, 101st Sustainment Brigade (Lifeliners), returned to Fort Campbell after a 9 month deployment to Iraq as part of Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Family and friends of the returning soldiers had gathered together to give their loved ones a proper welcome home. We arrived right as the announcement that the flight was 15 minutes out was made over the PA system. So as we entered the family members were getting themselves weather ready. Normally when the family members are allowed to head outdoors it’s a mad dash to get outside so they can claim the best spots, but due to the rain most of the family members waited inside until the plane had actually touched down.
