    Menu labeling of caloric content a critical tool in fighting obesity

     

    A letter to the editor from Newt Williams, a national volunteer advocate of the year for the American Heart Association.

    American Heart AssociationNashville, TN – Studies show that we tend to underestimate the calories in the foods we eat. We also tend to eat out or order take-out a lot more these days. That’s why it’s so important that we have adequate information on menus and menu boards to make informed food and beverage choices.

    Menu labeling is an inexpensive, common-sense measure that tells us what’s in the foods offered. It lets US make the choice. Without it, we’re eating blind.

    My wife showed me your article on my incident a few days ago and I wanted to thank you for being so accurate with the facts.

    The emergency response was top notch by all.  I am blessed to have not harmed anyone and even more blessed of the generosity shown to me by complete strangers. My wife told me that when she would be standing near the roadway, passing cars would stop and not ask what happened, but was everyone okay. This in itself shows what a great community we have here in Clarksville TN. «Read the rest of this article»

    Veterans Day

     

    Lest we forget…

    Yesterday was Veterans Day, a day set aside to honor the brave men and women who have taken up arms in defense of America and the freedom of her citizens in wars and conflicts.  It began in 1919 with President Woodrow Wilson’s words “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…” «Read the rest of this article»

    Terry McMoore supports Gabe Segovia

     

    In a Letter to the Editor, Clarksville Tennessee resident Terry McMoore lays out his support for Mayoral Candidate Gabe Segovia

    Gabe Segovia

    Gabe Segovia

    Gabe Segovia was my city council representative for eight years and while serving as my council representative, I found I could always depend on him to be there if I had a problem or question.

    As the average citizen and on the outside looking in there was a lot I didn’t know about city government. He was always helpful in informing and educating me on the workings of government and especially city government. Additionally, while he served on the council from 1997 to 2005, he never missed a council meeting. His record is 96-0. He also served as vice-mayor of Clarksville for two years.

    Segovia held monthly community meetings where he provided information to the public and citizens could present their concerns and ask questions about the city’s actions and programs. Those meetings were not restricted to just residents of his ward; people from anywhere in Clarksville were welcome and many became regular attendees. «Read the rest of this article»

    Kim McMillan

    Kim McMillan

    If you really want to know who you should vote for to lead Clarksville during the next four years, I am here to tell you, vote for Kim McMillan. I am casting my vote for the one candidate who has already proven that she is a leader and strong representative for Clarksville and Montgomery County, Tennessee.

    In case you didn’t know, or may have momentarily forgotten, Kim McMillan has served our community as a State Representative for twelve solid years, during which time her intelligence, leadership capabilities and interpersonal work skills helped to have her elected by her peers as the TN State House Majority Leader.  Kim has experience also in the state Finance, Ways and Means Committee as well as the State Budget Subcommittee.   Additionally, Kim served as Governor Bredesen’s Senior Advisor. «Read the rest of this article»
