City of Clarksville - Clarksville, TNClarksville, TN – Trees and power lines were knocked down by high winds late Thursday and early Friday across the city, while heavy rains forced water over roadways in some low-lying areas.

You meet the nicest people on a morning walk

 

Coy Lacy Park is a great place for a morning walk, and my friend Alicia and I walk there often. The paved walking track is about a quarter of a mile around, and for those of us who sometimes have our minds on other things, counting each time you past a post at the entrance makes keeping up with your walking distances easy.

I’ve been told that you shouldn’t walk so fast that you lose breath and can’t talk, but I don’t think there’s any danger of me walking that fast.  It’s such a nice morning stroll and each morning there’s something new to see. Sometimes it’s George and Jennie Craig, native Clarksvillians, just striding along –sometimes you can even see them holding hands.  George says they walk “’most every day”.
