Unlit flame on July 4th a symptom, could it be Clarksville just does not care?


Eternal Flame Memorial unlitThe Pillar of Cloud, Pillar of Fire  aka the Eternal Flame was conspicuously AWOL on July 4th! Our Eternal Flame seems to spend most of its time unlit. What does this signify about our dedication to “Supporting Our Troops!”

As the Independence Day weekend moves on, the smoke from fireworks has dissipated and the residue from our recent fireworks show have been cleared away. The traffic jams cleared up, and we each go on our merry way. Yes, the city’s celebration was quite a sight. And as noted in previous coverage here, the Pillar of Cloud, Pillar of Fire Eternal Flame Memorial was burning bright and strong at 11:30PM on July 3rd. The flags at City Hall were still sadly un-illuminated but the eternal flame did shine for that night. Hallelujah!!!

The Pillar of Clouds, Pillar of Fire MemorialAlas, it was too good to last. It was not burning during the daylight hours on our nation’s birthday, and when the evening of July 4th dawned upon us the flame was still NOWHERE TO BE SEEN. It was AWOL again! We took date stamped photographs to verify this.

Are our public officials really committed to keeping our pledge to light the flame, and in doing so honoring our fallen military personnel? Or is this just a “showpiece” there only to be utilized during special promotions and city events? «Read the rest of this article»


“Lighting Up the Cumberland,” Now THAT’S a spectacle!


Cumberland City’s “Thunder On The Cumberland” proves itself a worthy sequel.

Lighting Up The Cumberland!Cumberland City changed the date of their annual fireworks show honoring our Independence Day holiday. Normally held the last weekend of June to avoid conflict with well-known displays by larger communities, this year Cumber City went with the actual holiday to stage its fireworks spectacle. There was some confusion in regions beyond the immediate community. Some folks thought they had missed this year’s event. However, late inquiries provided the correct schedule and the crowds came out in force. They were well rewarded for their determination to attend this show. Well paid indeed! Very well paid, in fact!

The celebration festival was preceded by a parade through Cumberland City’s business district and a multi-locale collection of vendor sites, entertainment stages and rides for the young at heart. A petting zoo was also on hand to thrill young minds and hearts. The cooler weather made the afternoon activities easier to bear than had been the case with Clarksville’s production just 24 hours before.
