My Two Cents: The NFL

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – We’re a little over a week from the NFL’s premier event, the Super Bowl.  It’s been a tumultuous year for the sports league that has its own day of the week.

The controversy started with former San Francisco Giant quarterback, Colin Kaepernick, taking a knee during the playing of the National Anthem.  Other players started doing the same thing.  They each gave their reasons for the protest, but the insult was not taken lightly by fans.

Veterans Day is November 11th

 

The History of Veterans Day

U.S. Department of Veterans AffairsWashington, D.C. – World War I – known at the time as “The Great War” – officially ended when the Treaty of Versailles was signed on June 28th, 1919, in the Palace of Versailles outside the town of Versailles, France.

However, fighting ceased seven months earlier when an armistice, or temporary cessation of hostilities, between the Allied nations and Germany went into effect on the eleventh hour of the eleventh day of the eleventh month. For that reason, November 11th, 1918, is generally regarded as the end of “the war to end all wars.”

In November 1919, President Wilson proclaimed November 11th as the first commemoration of Armistice Day with the following words: “To us in America, the reflections of Armistice Day will be filled with solemn pride in the heroism of those who died in the country’s service and with gratitude for the victory, both because of the thing from which it has freed us and because of the opportunity it has given America to show her sympathy with peace and justice in the councils of the nations…”

Barack Obama for President Victory Party Celebration!

Barack Obama for President Celebration!

The Montgomery County Democratic Party will hold its Election 2008 (November 4) celebration at the Riverview Inn Ballroom, 50 College Street, in downtown Clarksville beginning at 7 p.m. The event is open to the public and is being staged with the expectation of a presidential win by the Obama/Biden team. All Democratic candidates are expected to attend and wait for the final tally.

Given the number of candidates and campaign staff involved in both Clarksville for Obama and the MCDP, the Dem headquarters on Madison Street was too small for the expected crowd on Tuesday evening.

Attendees can watch the returns on a large screen TV with additional internet access to results as they happen.
