It’s been several days after the end of the 2010 Riverfest Celebration, and for those who worked the two day festival, life is returning to normal. The hard working folks with the Clarksville Department of Parks & Recreation along the entertainers, and hundreds of volunteers ensured that the visitors could simply enjoy some good wholesome family fun.
This was the first year that Clarksville Online and Discover Clarksville was selected to document the festival as much as was humanly possible. Roland Woodworth, Ashley and Meghan Hamilton, and Bill Larson were given the job of photographing everything in the tiniest of detail, while Mark Haynes shot hours and hours of raw video footage, and Sue Culverhouse took it all in to get material for her wonderful articles!
Intermittent rain plagued Riverfest early on Friday afternoon.
With the turnout at the August 2010 election just a measly 19.04% of registered voters, voters have sent a message. It seems that they do not feel that their vote, their voice really makes a difference. This is a trend that we as a nation need to work on changing.
The roots of the current apathy towards voting can likely be traced to the current economic uncertainty; along with concerns about job security, such as seen in the recent announcement that 700 people in Clarksville will be losing their jobs at the Quad/Graphics printing plant in North Clarksville.
