Surprising Sporting Suspenders Saga

Clarksville, TN – At some point in the life of some older men, a shift occurs. The former rounded derriere becomes flattened and the formerly flat abdomen becomes a rounded tummy.

This can occur because of lessened activity due to illness of some variety, a hernia that can happen to the central muscles of a man’s chest, or simply the advent of becoming a “couch potato” for a number of years. It can even happen when someone has indulged in too many trips to the beer keg or drinks cabinet. (Or, as someone has put it, he might have traded one “six pack” set of muscles for too many others in cans or bottles!)

The result of this shift to “no hips” and “more tummy than one wishes” may necessitate moving from the use of a belt to hold up one’s pants to the purchase of suspenders.

Tennessee Veterans Education Transition Support Act passes both Houses

 

Written by Tennessee State Representative Curtis Johnson

Speaker Pro Tempore

Tennessee State Representative - District 68Nashville, TN – House Bill 715, the Tennessee Veterans Education Transition Support Act, would add spouses and dependent children as parties eligible for in-state tuition rates. Since a veteran can assign their benefits to a spouse or children, they would also qualify for these tuition and fee rates.

It would also shift the period of eligibility after discharge for in-state tuition rates from two years to three years. In addition, it requires the Tennessee Higher Education Commission (THEC) to convene the University of Tennessee (UT) and Tennessee Board of Regents systems to review processes related to awarding academic credit to veterans.
