I’ve been listening to Tennessean mom and pop shops, restaurants, and our live entertainment industry, all desperately trying to keep their businesses alive. Tennesseans’ lives and livelihoods are being affected.
People are looking for solutions. Congress needs to do its job.

Clarksville, TN – People have had many reasons to give thanks throughout history. Thanks is given often in joyful celebration and sometimes in solemn, even prayerful, ceremony.

It is a time to celebrate family and friends, the arrival of crisp fall weather, the turning of the leaves, football, turkey, cornbread dressing and pumpkin pie.

Washington, D.C. – At $2.10, this Thanksgiving’s national gas price average is shaping up to be the lowest since 2015. The holiday weekend average that year was a nickel cheaper at $2.05.

Washington, D.C. – As many Americans prepare for a socially distanced Thanksgiving meal, some may be aware that NASA helped develop the tiny, highly efficient video cameras in the devices that will allow virtual family dinners, and a few may know it was the space agency that first modernized conference calling.
But there’s an even more important contribution from NASA on the table: food that’s safe to eat.
Today, outbreaks of illness from packaged food are exceedingly rare, in part because the industry has almost universally adopted a system created for astronaut food in the early days of the Apollo program.
