Montgomery County Multi-Purpose Event Center should go Green

 

Written by John Kaler MSG, USA Retired

Letter to the EditorClarksville, TN – Literally thousands of concerned Montgomery county citizens are concerned about the Multi-Purpose Event Center not meeting operating costs and causing a tax increase to meet shortfalls.

To hold down utility costs the county should consider some combination of solar water heating, solar electrical panels, wind turbine and a green roof. Though they would add to to the initial cost the result could be money saved for the taxpayers!

Voter Registration Fraud by Montgomery County Exposed

 

Written by Thomas W. Terry

Letter to the EditorClarksville, TN – Friday, December 6th, 2019, was the deadline for the signature drive led by residents of Montgomery County. Those residents only wanted one thing: for their voice to be heard. They were understanding of the fact that not everyone shared their opinion and to that end they wanted the up and coming multipurpose event center at the very least put to referendum.

During the course of the MPEC debacle there have been a number of allegations and revelations brought to light, one of the most concerning of which is that there are approximately 57,000 invalid voter registrations belonging to residents who are either deceased, no longer live in the county, or who are ineligible to vote.

My Two Cents: Cowboy

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – Parents want their children to be healthy and productive in life.  To give their kids every opportunity to excel.  Whether it’s in sports or academics. 

I’ve seen a lot of young people in Clarksville use sports as a vehicle to advance their education.  Baseball, football, soccer, tennis and golf are typically the activities you see kids participating in.  But, rodeo?

Dodging the Roadkill: The Last Ride

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I recently posed the question on my social media that if you knew it would be your last ride, where would you go?  The answers were varied and covered a lot of territory, but the common theme of all the responses I got was, “happy.”

I’ve shared with you before, that the time I spend on my motorcycle, is the closest I come to being truly in touch with my life.  I have so much time to think of what was, and what will be. 

Things I’ve done, both good and bad, places I’ve been, people I’ve met.  What kind of man have I been.  What kind of father, husband, friend. You have a lot of time to think, especially if you’re cutting across Kansas.  LOL!

Youth deserve ability to make an informed decision about their future

 

Written by Maj. Gen. Jeffrey Snow
Commanding General for U.S. Army Recruiting Command

U.S. ArmyFort Knox, KY – Unfortunately, the growing divide between the military and society was apparent last week when a teacher’s inaccurate and misinformed statements about the quality of America’s armed forces made national headlines.

As a U.S. Army officer for more than 30 years, I can tell you our nation’s military services are among the most respected organizations in the world, and the individuals who choose to serve deserve the support of our nation’s people.

About 50 percent of young Americans today admit they know little to nothing about our military. As a nation, we are failing them, and we are failing ourselves.

My Two Cents: When The Music Dies

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – I took a motorcycle trip this weekend and with it comes lots of time for reflection as I roll down the highway. It’s one of my greatest pleasures now. The music and me.  Alone.  

It’s been a sad couple of years for losing musical icons.  It seemed like every day there was one right after another.  I remember thinking, “boy this year sucks.”  Then another, and another.

My Two Cents: Celebrities and Politics

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – To say it’s been a very contentious couple of years would be a major understatement.  Suffice it to say that it seems our great country is divided as bad as I can remember.  Being stationed overseas during the sixties, I was far removed from the Civil Rights movement, and the riots and demonstrations that were so prevalent. 

Now with the internet and social media, it seems that not only are we all just a “click” away from instant news, fake and otherwise, but we are also able to connect with our favorite rock stars, actors, entertainers and politicians.Hollywood Sign «Read the rest of this article»

My Two Cents: How a Motorcycle pulled me out of Depression

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – I spent my career in the spotlight.  Forty years in broadcasting.  The last eighteen years as the owner of a radio station, and the host of a morning talk show.  I was right in the middle of everything.

Over the course of my career, I “hob-knobbed” with the rich and famous.  Rock stars, politicians, entertainers and more.  There was nobody I couldn’t hang out with. There wasn’t a politician or public official I couldn’t interview.
