Austin Peay State University - APSUClarksville, TN – From 2000 to 2012, Kentucky’s population grew by more than 337,000 residents. However, not all Kentucky counties experienced the same rate of population growth and some counties actually experienced a population decline.

Clarksville City Council Regular Session Budget Report – Part I, June 9th, 2013


Clarksville City Council - Ward 10Clarksville, TN – I don’t know if there is a Guinness Book record for long council meetings, but I believe we would qualify after Thursday’s regular session. The meeting started at 6:55om Thursday and ended about 2:20am Friday morning.

Things started mild enough, then got feisty and progressed downhill to the point that at the end of the meeting Councilman James Lewis stormed over to Councilman David Allen as they were leaving and said he would see him outside. Police were requested to go outside to ensure the situation did not turn into a knock down and drag out affair.

So basically, it was a regular night at the Clarksville City Council. «Read the rest of this article»

How far are we willing to let the police go?


This is a story on the New York City Police Department and actions they are undertaking. The questions asked have a wider societal impact, and thus we wanted to share it with our readers.

You are walking down the street.  You are stopped, ordered to spread, frisked by police, your identity checked, and questioned.  There was no probably cause to stop you, this is a random check.  You are found carrying no weapons or drugs, your identity does not bring up any hits on wants or warrants.

So other than the indignity – visited far more often on young Black and Hispanic men than anyone else – other than the demeaning nature of the encounter, it’s over, right?

WRONG.  All of your biographical information will now be stored indefinitely by the New York City police in a data base according to Police Commissioner Ray Kelly.

“used primarily by department investigators during the course of a criminal investigation”

If you are not shocked by this, why not?  Whether or not you are, you should read Bob Herbert’s New York Times column yesterday, Watching Certain People, which will be the basis of this posting. «Read the rest of this article»
