Dodging the Roadkill: Watching The Sun Come Up

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyClarksville, TN – I’ve always been a morning person.  I spent the last twenty years of my broadcasting career as a morning talk show host, so, the “crack of dawn” is no stranger to me.

I had a dream the other night that I was riding my Harley out through the Land Between the Lakes National Preserve, so when I woke up, I put on my gear and took off.

After a quick cup of coffee, I headed down Highway 79 towards Dover, TN.  As the sun was coming up behind me, it was a cool 57 degrees and I couldn’t be closer to heaven than at that moment.

Bikers know the solitude of early morning riding and how it touches your soul.  I wrote about it here.

Clarksville Mayor Kim McMillan’s letter regarding the FY2012 Budget

 

Clarksville Office of the Mayor - Kim McMillan

June 9, 2011

 

Dear Council Members and Citizens of Clarksville:

 The budget process provides an annual opportunity to examine the City’s performance and our community’s economic health.  Through the budget process, we have the ability to review what we did right and wrong in the current budget, assess our strengths and weaknesses, and plan for future opportunities and challenges that face the community of Clarksville.  As your new Mayor, I have stated that my Administration will be transparent and open about our priorities and goals and that I will keep both the City Council and our citizens apprised of the City’s ongoing projects and our financial condition.  Despite serving 12 years on the Tennessee House Finance, Ways and Means Committee and having a good understanding of governmental accounting, I think you can appreciate that with an overall City budget in excess of $418 million in one of the fastest growing Cities in Tennessee, that it has taken a few months for me to review all the areas included in the City’s budget.  Therefore this budget will serve not only as the annual budget, but as my first update on the status of City projects and City finances. «Read the rest of this article»
