When Newspapers Mattered: The News Brothers and their Shades of Glory

 

My Two-Cents with Hank BonecutterClarksville, TN – As my wife and I were preparing for a recent vacation, we started collecting the books we planned to read while on our trip.  I usually grab the latest offering by Harlan Coben, Patricia Cornwell, or John Grisham.

She is currently catching up on the “Left Behind” series, but as she was putting our choices in the bag, she reached for my autographed copy of “When Newspapers Mattered: The News Brothers & their Shades of Glory” written by former Leaf-Chronicle “newspapermen” Tim Ghianni and Rob Dollar.

Memories of Mickey – Remembering Mickey Fisher Part 3

 

Part 3 of a 5 Part Series

Mickey FisherClarksville, TN – Mickey Fisher was adjusting to college life, and playing  basketball with “Fly” Williams. Austin Peay State University and the Clarksville community was attracting national attention.  During all of this change and excitement,  someone caught his eye.

Mary Hopson had graduated from Clarksville High School two years ahead of Mickey.  They knew who each other was in high school, but because of their age difference, they never dated. Mary was one of three children from a regular,hard working, go to church on Sunday family. Very close to her father, with a couple of ” over-protective” brothers and a mother who could cook like nobody’s business, Mary Hopson was raised just like Mickey Fisher. Their families never had a lot of money, never had all the latest “things,” they just made the best out of what they had, and they were happy about it.

Finding Fabulous Fashions at Rogate’s Boutique

 

Clarksville, TN – Tired of seeing ten or twelve of the same dress whenever you shop? If so, Rogate’s Boutique at 115 Franklin Street in Historic Downtown Clarksville should be your next shopping destination.

By the way, the proper pronunciation is “row-gah-teh’s” not “row-gate’s” (rhyming with “too late”). The name of the store is the first name of Rogate Hadley, the store’s owner. Her Swiss parents chose an Italian name for her, hence the pronunciation.

The Civil War Musical at the Roxy Theater—What a Bargain!

 

Clarksville, TN – Attending the Civil War Musical at Clarksville’s Roxy Theater is the biggest bargain in entertainment in Middle Tennessee! Where else can you see a professionally staged and professionally performed musical for a mere twenty dollars?

“The Civil War: A Sesquicentennial Event” is from a book by Frank Wildhorn, Gregory Boyd and Jack Murphy with music by Frank Wildhorn, and lyrics by Frank Wildhorn, Gregory Boyd and Jack Murphy.

What this musical accomplishes is the revelation that both Union and Confederate soldiers–many of whom literally were brothers–had identical desires and feelings going into war. Each is certain that his cause is just and worth fighting for. Slaves are portrayed suffering intense emotions as husband and wife are separated by forces outside themselves.
