Nashville PredatorsClarksville, TN – The Nashville Predators manhandled the Winnipeg Jets tonight with a 4-0 shutout victory in front of a sold out “white out” crowd in Winnipeg. 

The win forces a game 7 in Nashville on Thursday night.

The Nashville penalty kill was superb against the Jets, and it had to be since there was only one penalty called against the Jets all night.  The Predators fought off six minutes of penalties in the first period alone.

Tennessee State Fire Marshal says Only Install Home Security Bars with Quick-Release Device

 

Tennessee State Fire MarshalNashville, TN – Security bars are a common method of household protection against burglary. While burglar bars keep criminals out, the Tennessee State Fire Marshal’s Office (SFMO) warns consumers that, in the event of a fire, bars without a quick-release device can block crucial exits and trap residents inside a burning home.

According to the Tennessee Fire Incident Reporting System (TFIRS), between 2012 and 2016, 12 residents died in home fires where security bars were a contributing factor to the fire death. Ten of the 12 deaths occurred in a single incident in Memphis that claimed the lives of three adults and seven children in September 2016.

Between 2012 and 2016, 12 Residents Died In Home Fires Where Security Bars Hindered Escape.

Nashville Sounds

Nashville SoundsNashville, TN – The Nashville Sounds’ attempt at sweeping the Memphis Redbirds came up short in a 4-1 loss in front of 8,297 fans at First Tennessee Park Monday afternoon.

BJ Boyd gave the Sounds a 1-0 lead when he plated Josh Phegley with a fielder’s choice.

Tennessee Gas Prices Face Upward Pressure

 

Clarksville-Montgomery County has the Third Cheapest Gas Prices in Tennessee

AAATampa, FL Tennessee gas prices averaged $2.59 on Sunday. See today’s price

The state average is the same as last week, and 22 cents less than the national average. However, Tennessee motorists are paying 47 cents more per gallon than this time last year. 

The rising price of oil may drag gas prices higher this week. Oil prices reached a new 2018 high, on the belief that President Trump may pull out of the Iran Nuclear Deal. Such a move would likely reinstate sanctions, resulting in reduced global supply, and higher fuel prices. 

Oil Prices may rise on Iran Nuclear Deal.

Dodging the Roadkill: Boars Nest Bed and Breakfast/Blue Boar Restaurant review

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyCobden, IL – I spent the weekend in southern Illinois.  I had never been to this part of the country but wanted to attend the annual Blessing of the Bikes at the Bald Knob Cross of Peace.  

I was fortunate to stay at the Boars Nest Bed and Breakfast, and enjoy the Blue Boar restaurant.  Dave Fombelle and his son Bob were tremendous hosts and their facilities were excellent.

The bed and breakfast is located on 100 acres of Illinois countryside, nestled in the woods, where the definition of “peace and quiet” lives.  There are five units including the “honeymoon” suite and they are exceptional.
