Clarksville, TN – As far back as I can remember, the Braves were fine. Nearly always good, occasionally great. Sure, there was that 2008 team that was underachieving and unfortunate and doesn’t bear any measure of discussion. But from the time I started paying attention to baseball, I could nearly always count on Atlanta being involved in meaningful games in August and September.
So 2015 will be slightly different.
Clarksville, TN – The Clarksville Street Department will close Old Russellville Pike on Friday, September 4th, 2015 beginning at 8:30am. Weather permitting, the road will be closed at the railroad tracks for repaving. Traffic will not be rerouted.
The Street Department is working with RJ Corman on the project.
Tampa, FL – More Americans will be traveling this weekend than they have any Labor Day weekend since 2008. Since most of those travelers will be doing so by car, a significant danger is created when you add impaired drivers celebrating the last holiday weekend of the summer.
AAA and Bud Light ask anyone celebrating with alcohol to plan ahead. That means using a Designated Driver, staying where you are celebrating, or arranging for a sober ride home such as a taxi or a ride-share program.
Clarksville, TN – Earlier this summer, Jose Ramos-Lopez, a senior cadet in Austin Peay State University’s ROTC program, found himself running with police officers through the streets of Freehold Borough, New Jersey.
