Rivers and Spires Festiveal 2012 - 10 yearsClarksville, TN – The final day of the 2012 Rivers and Spires Festival on Saturday opened with unseasonably cooler weather to the point of being really chilly.  Warm coats, hats, and/or gloves were the order of the day.  Turnout started out slow, and might have been a little bit depressed over all from previous years as a result, but the people who did come out had a really great time!

Arriving around 11:00am, I found dribs and drabs of people mostly scattered around the various stages. As the morning progressed the numbers steadily increased. I made my way up strawberry alley and watched a vendor playing with one of the many items he had for sale. «Read the rest of this article»

The Rivers and Spires FestivalClarksville, TN – Due to unseasonably chilly weather and a blustery wind, the third day of Rivers and Spires looked like it was going to end with a whimper rather than a bang, the victim of the unpredictable spring weather. However as the afternoon wore on, more and more people showed up to enjoy all that the festival had to offer. “The crowd hung in even though we had monsoon winds and rains, and I think it says a lot about this festival, and how much people enjoy it” said Festival Manager Doug Barber.

Sí, se puede – Yes we can enact immigration reform!

 

A crowd of more than 200,000 gathered in our nation’s capital on last Sunday to push President Barack Obama to keep his campaign’s promise to enact a  “just and humane” immigration policy for our nation. Jimmie Garland Sr. from the Clarksville Tennessee NAACP was there along with members of the Hispanic Organization for Progress and Education (H.O.P.E.) and the Tennessee Immigrant and Refugee Rights Coalition (TIRRC).

Seldom does one have the opportunity to witness history in the making.

As we marched through the streets of Washington, D.C., our nation’s capitol, you could feel the tensions of excitement in the spirit of the marchers. There were participants of all ages, nationalities, ethnicities, and social germane. Each brought their story, and contributed openly to the most important march for freedom in the 21st Century. A march that is certain to go down in history as the beginning of the Hispanic community’s call for real equality and justice. An appeal for unhindered citizenship, the ability for their children to not be left behind as they prepare themselves to become productive citizens.
