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.

Clarksville City Council Ward 9 race gets personal

 

Election 2012Clarksville, TN – The race for Clarksville City Council in Ward 9 turned ugly this week.  What had been a fairly low key, non eventful door to door campaign among four candidates, has been turned up a notch between challenger Jeff Robinson and the incumbent Joel Wallace.

During a TV taping this week  for the Leadership Clarksville Political Forums, Wallace called out Robinson for his handling of the Parking Authority while serving on that board, then questioned Robinson for hiring an out of town attorney to handle his bankruptcy following the 1999 tornado.

Robinson and his wife own the Blackhorse Pub and Brewery in downtown Clarksville.

Election 2012Clarksville, TN – District 74 State Representative John Tidwell makes the first impression of a “good old country boy” who just climbed out of the combine to greet you.   Once you get him started, he’s like your country neighbor talking about the crops and the livestock, he’s probably not going to stop talking until you tell him you’ve got to get home for dinner, but make no mistake, he’s just as comfortable roaming the halls of the Tennessee Legislature as he is leaning against the fencepost “shooting the breeze.”

Tidwell was a guest on “Clarksville in Review” this weekend on WJZM 1400am with host Hank Bonecutter, on the heals of last Thursday’s primary where Lauri Day defeated Nick Steward for the republican nomination.

Clarksville, TN – An e-mail has been circulating warning of a “dangerous vet in Clarksville” and the target of this attack is Dr. Ron Whitford of the St. Bethlehem Animal Clinic.

The message is from a woman named Stacia Bearden, and details a story about a dog that was taken to Dr. Whitford’s clinic where it was spayed. According to the email the puppy got sick and died.

After the puppy died, another Vet did an autopsy and determined that the original procedure was faulty because Dr. Whitford had used “zip ties” instead of “sterile sutures” to close off the arteries during the operation. The email goes on to warn everybody “not to use this vet, he could kill your dog.”

Whitford is outraged. «Read the rest of this article»
