Diet Drinks and Other Diet Goodies


Weight Loss Over the years I and many others trying to watch their weight have spent millions of dollars on diet drinks, diet ice cream, diet foods, diet candies, not to mention all of the over the counter pills, and lets not forget the gym.  What I want to talk a little bit about today is the diet drinks, ice creams and candies. «Read the rest of this article»


Obesity, Weight Loss, and Just Being Healthy


Weight Loss Every day, we can pick up a paper and see that the great American government has decided that yet another sector of our country is now “officially obese”. We have adults, teens and now infants. We are not talking just a little overweight, we are talking life threatening, seriously obese.

In 1997, I found myself needing to get rid of about 40 pounds. I was obese. At the time there was no support on the Internet. So, I put the first online journal up for the world to see and within 2 months had over 250 men and women with journals. We started an email list and we supported each other and learned from each other. «Read the rest of this article»


The Bush Administration and the politics of fear.


The Logo of the Republican PartyWhile we want to believe that we can trust everything our government tells us, recent history has shown that in this Rovian age that we are likely to be mislead.

If you looked behind the grandiose press conferences of the cases against Abu Ali, Jose Padilla’s, and others like theirs, you find the flimsiest of facts – Counter punch

So, take these new claims of Terrorist plots with a grain of salt. «Read the rest of this article»

Multi-Purpose Event Center, Boon or Boondoggle


The Multi-Purpose Events CenterAs you may know the Economic Development Council (EDC) is trying to convince the County and City taxpayers to fund a Multi-Purpose Event Center.  Visit the website to view the presentation and maybe even take the time to participate in their survey.  Mr. James Chavez, president of the EDC, has been the front man on this project and has given numerous presentations throughout the City and County.  One such presentation was at a town hall meeting sponsored by Councilman Ken Takasaki.

A number of City Council members both past and present and a few County Commissioners were present at the meeting.  Mr. Chavez was asked some very specific questions concerning the profitability of an event center, who must pay the mortgage, how much annual revenue will the MPEC generate, what will be the debt service, who pays the debt service if the MPEC operates at a loss, how did the EDC calculate the debt service, etc.  Many of us left that meeting that night without answers.  Mr. Chavez promised Councilman Takasaki that he would supply those answers in a few days.  That meeting was over two months ago.  Mr. Chavez still has not provided the answers. «Read the rest of this article»


TN Title VI Compliance Commission Meeting Fails


The Seal of the State of TennesseeThe Tennessee Title VI Compliance Commission was scheduled to meet in Nashville at the Legislative Plaza on August 7, 2006.  No official business could be conducted because the Commission did not have a quorum of members in attendance.  The Commission was scheduled to meet in Clarksville in September of 2005.  That meeting failed also due to the lack of a quorum.

There were a number of individuals from Clarksville that attended the meeting with high hopes of being able to present issues related to Title VI and hear some possible solutions.  Sadly their hopes were dashed because the official meeting had to be canceled. «Read the rest of this article»
