Nashville, TN – It’s been a busy August in Tennessee! It has been a delight to visit nearly 40 different counties in the Volunteer State! Here’s a bit of what I’ve been working on lately.
In Marion County, I met with the Sequachee Valley Electric Cooperative to learn how they are working on bringing broadband to unserved areas. Earlier this year, I introduced the bipartisan Internet Exchange Act, which will help improve internet access for consumers and expand rural broadband services. The sad truth is that many of our rural areas aren’t underserved–they’re unserved. It is time to change that.

Nashville, TN – Matt Davidson hit a walk-off sacrifice fly in the bottom of the 13th inning to give the Nashville Sounds a 6-5 win over the San Antonio Missions in the season finale Monday afternoon, September 2nd, 2019 at First Tennessee Park.
Davidson hit a 1-1 pitch from catcher-turned-pitcher Tuffy Gosewisch into left field. It was deep enough to score Andy Ibanez from third with the winning run. Nashville finished the 2019 campaign with a 66-72 record.
Clarksville, TN – Clarksville Police report a little after midnight, a 19 year old man was found laying on the 101st Airborne Division Parkway roadway between Fort Campbell Boulevard and Jordan Road. Police found him in the roadway, alone, after a couple of passerbys had called the 911 center.
The 19 year old was taken by Lifeflight to a Nashville hospital in critical condition; the man had road rash but no indicators of an assault. At that time, what had happened and the man’s identity were unknown.
Fort Campbell, KY – Bushido is a Japanese collective term for the many codes of honor and ideals that directed the samurai way of life; meaning “the way of the warrior,” the “way” originates from the samurai moral values, most commonly stressing some combination of sincerity, frugality, loyalty, martial arts mastery, and honor until death.
Leaders with the 3rd Brigade Combat Team, 101st Airborne Division (Air Assault), carry out the incoming brigade commander’s intent in the third annual Bushido training event where leaders are led by leaders and where senior leaders mentor the next generation of leaders at Camp Rudder, Eglin Air Force Base, FL on August 26th-29th.
Dallas, TX – The American Heart Association, the world’s leading nonprofit organization focused on heart and brain health for all, is urging people to take precautions to protect their hearts in hot weather.
Clarksville, TN – I rolled into Ouray, Colorado on an early Sunday afternoon, mesmerized by the beauty of it all. My first thought was that it looked like a little town in Switzerland. Oddly enough, it’s known as the Switzerland of America.
I was looking forward to seeing my friends, Kim and Craig Kotzen, and finally getting a chance to ride the incredible Million Dollar Highway.
From the first day I started riding, my biker brothers and sisters have been telling me of all the great places to ride, and the “must do” events.
The Million Dollar Highway was on that list.
