My Two Cents: Do you see what I see?

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – In a media career that spanned over 40 years, I’ve been blessed to have met a lot of incredible people.  Rock stars, celebrities, politicians and more. 

But what I’ve enjoyed the most is meeting people who’ve been dealt a bad hand, but have persevered and made the most of their life.  They refuse to let their circumstances dictate who they are.     

This is just that kind of story.

Wrapping up Clarksville’s 2014 Rivers and Spires Festival

 

Rivers and Spires FestivalClarksville, TN – The last day of the 2014 Rivers and Spires Festival continued to be the best in memory. The weather was absolutely flawless, neither too hot nor to cold. There wasn’t a cloud in the sky throughout the entire day.

I rushed down to the Festival at 9:00am to catch the annual WJZM 1400 AM Clarksville in Review broadcast from the Festival. This usually is held at the Bill Roberts thunder road automotive tent on Franklin Street just down from the Roxy Regional Theatre. The program was already well underway when I arrived.
