Mark Green Pledges to Decline Per Diem Payments if Elected

 

Election 2012Clarksville, TN – In a speech before the Montgomery County Republican Women today, Dr. Mark Green, State Senate candidate for District 22, announced that he will not accept per diem payments while serving as a State Senator if he is elected to replace incumbent State Senator Tim Barnes. Green said the $173-per-day stipend is only intended to provide overnight accommodations and meals for legislators living too far from Nashville to commute so he will not accept the payments.

“As a small business owner, I would never pay an employee a travel allowance just to stay at their home and show up at the office the next morning,” said Green, who lives just 37 miles from the State Capitol. “The taxpayers should not be on the hook for me sleeping in my own bed and eating my own food just because I’m serving in the state legislature.”

John C. Tidwell

Election 2012Clarksville, TN – District 74 State Representative John Tidwell makes the first impression of a “good old country boy” who just climbed out of the combine to greet you.   Once you get him started, he’s like your country neighbor talking about the crops and the livestock, he’s probably not going to stop talking until you tell him you’ve got to get home for dinner, but make no mistake, he’s just as comfortable roaming the halls of the Tennessee Legislature as he is leaning against the fencepost “shooting the breeze.”

Tidwell was a guest on “Clarksville in Review” this weekend on WJZM 1400am with host Hank Bonecutter, on the heals of last Thursday’s primary where Lauri Day defeated Nick Steward for the republican nomination.

MRSA: Awareness, Prevention Key To Stopping Infection

 

Tennessee Department of HealthNashville, TN – Thanks to modern antibiotics, many infections are treated with relative ease with an injection or other form of these medications. But some germs have become resistant to these remedies and are harder to fight. MRSA, or Methicillin-resistant Staphylococcus Aureus, is one of these.

MRSA may cause skin infections that can appear as raised bumps or boils which are often red, swollen, painful or have pus or other drainage. These infections are often mistaken for spider bites. More advanced MRSA cases can include wounds that don’t heal, pneumonia and blood infections.

MRSA infections occur most frequently among persons in hospitals and healthcare facilities, including nursing homes, and dialysis centers. (Janice Haney Car/CDC).
