Clarksville, TN – On Monday, May 29th, 2017, around 11:30pm, Clarksville Police Officer Jennifer Renken responded to a call at the movie theater in the 1800 block of Tiny Town Road, about a man who was irate because the theater’s concession stand was closed and they would not sell him popcorn.
He had retrieved an empty popcorn container from the trash can and demanded it be refilled. After the staff refused to fill the container, he threw it at the employee, knocked over a display in the lobby, and then ran off into the theater.
Clarksville, TN – When I started my journey, I remember the first time I took my Harley for a ride down the Interstate.
Wow! This is REALLY fast!
I remember I was somewhat intimidated by all the traffic, the trucks and at times, the road debris. My Street Glide Special was solid as a rock, purred like a kitten, and handled the turbulence of the 18 wheelers. What I was most concerned about was, I wasn’t as “diligent” at keeping an eye on my rear view mirrors, so the passing vehicle that I hadn’t noticed, caused me a bit of a scare.
Street party near Clarksville City Hall set for Wednesday’s game
Clarksville, TN – If you’re looking for a family friendly place to gather with local hockey fans to cheer on P.K. Subban, Pekka Rinne and the amazing Nashville Predators, Clarksville has the perfect solution.
The City of Clarksville will host a free Predators viewing party near City Hall on Wednesday evening for Game 2 of the Stanley Cup Finals.
Clarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators walked onto the national sports stage in Pittsburgh last night for game one of the Stanley Cup Playoffs. They outplayed the defending champions, but lost the game.
I’m encouraged by their play and not too disappointed over the loss. What I AM disappointed about is mistakes. Stupid mistakes.
First, the referees. The reversed call on the Predator’s first goal was a bogus decision. We all watched it. We all saw the replay. Clearly there wasn’t enough evidence to overturn the decision on the ice which was a “good” goal. That changed the momentum of the game.
Washington, D.C. – It is never safe to look directly at the sun’s rays – even if the sun is partly obscured. When watching a partial eclipse you must wear eclipse glasses at all times if you want to face the sun, or use an alternate indirect method. This also applies during a total eclipse up until the time when the sun is completely and totally blocked.
During the short time when the moon completely obscures the sun – known as the period of totality – it is safe to look directly at the star, but it’s crucial that you know when to take off and put back on your glasses.
