Nashville Sounds lose 2-1 to New Orleans Zephyrs


Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds suffered their league-leading 17th one-run defeat on Sunday afternoon at Zephyr Field, falling 2-1 to New Orleans.

Nashville managed only three hits on the afternoon and New Orleans hurlers combined to retire the final 15 Sounds batters in order to close out the contest.

Right-hander Hiram Burgos made a rehab start for the Sounds but it was an abbreviated one-inning outing due the onset of a lengthy rain delay. He allowed one hit and walked a batter during a scoreless 22-pitch frame.

Clarksville Golf AssociationClarksville, TN – A two-round total of 26-under par 116 wasn’t good enough to win in regulation, Sunday, June 23rd at Swan Lake Golf Course in the Bud Light/Clarksville Golf Association Two-Man Scramble, as the team of Clev Guinn and Tyler Guy needed a short birdie putt on the first playoff hole to defeat the duo of Tyler Phillips and Steven Williams to take the title.

F&M Investment Services - Raymond JamesClarksville, TN – Equities across the globe fell sharply after Federal Reserve Chairman Ben Bernanke implied that the central bank may start to wind down its asset purchases later this year if the economy continues to improve.

What’s On Your Mind (Part III)


Leap of Faith MinistriesClarksville, TN – Many Christians reach a plateau in their spiritual lives and seem able to go no further. They pray, study the Bible, attend church regularly, tithe, memorize Bible promises and keep trying to grow in faith.

But they stay at the same level year after year. Eventually, all Christians must come to realize that God isn’t foolish. He has filled the Bible with many generous promises of all the things He will do for his children. But He was wise enough to build perfect controls into his word. «Read the rest of this article»

Keeping Up With Who?


Gym BagClarksville, TN – Yesterday I noticed a crazy phenomenon at the gym. The folks who are not in the best shape try really hard to keep up with the instructor and other folks who are in great shape. On the surface this is a great thing. The positive peer pressure motivates some to dig harder than they ever thought they could.

But, it can also be discouraging.

See, try as they might, the 45 year old housewife who has never worked out a day in her life will never be 21 again. The 39 year old dude with the beer belly will never be 18. Crunches  don’t turn back the clock. «Read the rest of this article»

Kris Wolfe: Are You a Wise Guy?


CloudsAre You a Wise Guy?

I’ve been reading Proverbs this week.  There are several Proverbs about being a fool, or about being wise; there are many about accepting instruction and criticism. Why does this matter so much?

We have have a lot to learn, but sometimes we are so busy trying to teach others or tell people how they should work, play and live that we miss out on really amazing knowledge.

It’s impossible to know everything, so why do we pretend like we do? My husband knows more about motorcycles than anyone I know, yet he always learns something new; it’s because he listens.  He never stops. «Read the rest of this article»
