Nashville, TN – The recent report from the 3-Star Health Task Force is now in the books and deserves great scrutiny and a modicum of praise for their work.
You will recall the task force was appointed by Speaker of the House Beth Harwell in response to the growing need to address the rising number of Tennesseans who fall into the “coverage gap”, or those who don’t qualify for the state run TennCare nor the Health Care Marketplace policies made available by the Affordable Care Act.
Allow me to applaud Speaker Harwell for creating the Task Force in the face of brisk criticism for the Tennessee General Assembly’s inaction in addressing the need for more Tennesseans to have access to health care options through a viable health insurance plan.
Clarksville, TN – Songwriters Jerry Leiber and Mike Stoller penned the music that defined a generation, including such iconic songs from the 1950s and ’60s as “Hound Dog,” “Stand by Me,” “Yakety Yak,” “Jailhouse Rock,” “Spanish Harlem,” “On Broadway,” “Love Potion #9” and “Fools Fall in Love.”
This summer, the work of that legendary team will be celebrated in the Roxy Regional Theatre’s production of “Smokey Joe’s Cafe”, running July 22nd through August 20th.
The longest running musical revue in Broadway history, this Tony Award-nominated and Grammy Award-winning production pays tribute to over three dozen of the greatest songs ever recorded during the golden age of American culture.
