Tennessee State Representative - District 74Nashville, TN – President Barack Obama came to Nashville on Thursday as part of his post State of the Union tour of speeches.

Hilltop SupermarketClarksville, TN – It’s a sad reality in our society. “Mom and Pop” stores of every kind are struggling to keep their doors open against their big box competitors. One store that is bucking this trend is the Hilltop CB Supermarket at 400 Highway 149. This locally owned and operated grocery store still has freshly butchered meat daily and runs sales that make it worth driving the extra few miles to take advantage of.

Wayne Hall opened the original Hilltop Supermarket, in a 5,000 square-feet building, across the street from its current location in 1967.

So, I thought I would post it here and see what happens.  Here is my unsuccessfully sent comment:
