My Two Cents: Cowboy

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – Parents want their children to be healthy and productive in life.  To give their kids every opportunity to excel.  Whether it’s in sports or academics. 

I’ve seen a lot of young people in Clarksville use sports as a vehicle to advance their education.  Baseball, football, soccer, tennis and golf are typically the activities you see kids participating in.  But, rodeo?

Dodging the Roadkill: Saltgrass Steakhouse

 

Dodging the Roadkill - A Biker's JourneyColorado Springs, CO – I traveled to Colorado recently and after a couple of hard days of riding, I was yearning for a good steak.  The Saltgrass Steak House was just down the road from where I was staying, so I had to give it a try. 

They refer to themselves as “the original Texas Steakhouse” and after slicing into my rib-eye, I could understand. 

Their story dates back to the 1800’s, according to their website, when millions of Longhorns roamed freely throughout Texas.  With the taste for beef becoming a newfound favorite in the North, Texas ranchers prospered as never before.
