President of the United States SealWashington, D.C. – Whether on the battlefields of Bunker Hill, on the beaches of Normandy, in the jungles of Vietnam, or in the mountains and deserts of the Middle East, brave Americans of every generation have given their last full measure of devotion in defense of our country, our liberty, and our founding ideals.  On Memorial Day, we humbly honor these incredible patriots and firmly renew our abiding commitment to uphold the principles for which they laid down their lives.

AAA

AAATampa, FL – Many motorists filling up across the country are noticing gas prices that are increasing slightly. While nearly 25 states’ averages increased on the week, the national average is only a penny more than a week ago at $2.26.

The fluctuating national and state gas price averages come alongside an increase in gasoline demand and reflect the higher crude oil prices as of late, but it’s likely not to be a long-term trend.

While nearly 25 states’ averages increased on the week, the national average is only a penny more than a week ago. (AAA)

My Two Cents: A Nation Divided

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – This article is strictly my opinion and does NOT reflect the opinion of the staff, management or sponsors of Clarksville Online and it’s partners.

I’ve just finished watching President Trump’s speech from the oval office.  I watched it online and watched in horror the HATE that has consumed this country and is perpetuated by all of us in some form or fashion. 

I’m no expert and I’m not trying to change the world, I’m just trying to enjoy life, my family, my grandsons and my faith. I want ALL of us to do good, to be healthy, happy and fulfilled.
