We are grateful to the many loyal readers of Main Street Clarksville. Our team of journalists works hard every day to keep you updated about what is happening in Clarksville. We hope you have enjoyed our focus on local government, business, sports, people and much more. We have continued to add features over the past couple of years, like puzzles and comics, and just recently started carrying a weekly column from Ms. Cheap on ways to save money.
Last week, White House Press Secretary Karine Jean-Pierre proclaimed that, “the economy is in a better place than it has been historically.” This statement is the last in a parade of delusions that Joe Biden and the Democrats have been peddling for almost a year. The strategy is simple: deny their own disasters and, when all else fails, shift the blame elsewhere. Unfortunately, Tennesseans don’t have the benefit of living in the White House’s world of make believe. They know the economy is failing and feel like they have no idea who is in control of the country — or indeed if anyone is.
Americans expect a government “of the people, by the people, [and] for the people.” But our state of constant crisis has left Tennesseans feeling that the Biden White House has abandoned their responsibility to “We the People” almost entirely.
While the Biden administration keeps busy sabotaging border patrol and local law enforcement, American communities are falling apart. Murder rates are at a 25-year high, and violent crime as a whole – including rape, robbery, and aggravated assault offenses – are similarly spiking.
By this time in May, my late father would have already gathered up every bushel basket, every wash tub, every orange crate, and as many cardboard boxes he could get his hands on in preparation for “settin’” tobacco.
If you are planning to go to the Gaylord Opryland Resort & Convention Center’s wet and wild SoundWaves water attraction, it is smart to wait until the outdoor slides and pools are open because they offer even more water and fun at this $90 million water wonder.
Summer break used to give kids time to explore – camping trips, games of hide and seek, and picnics in the park. But as of late, students with free time on their hands have traded adventure for more screen time.
Inside the Oval Office, Joe Biden is convinced that “our economy has gone from being on the mend to being on the move.” What he doesn’t see from his view at 1600 Pennsylvania Avenue is that our economy is moving in the wrong direction.
Having just voted in the first election of this season in Montgomery County, I felt a sense of accomplishment as I left the polling place. Then I found that my vote was part of only 8.1% voter turnout for the primary. Out of 134,407 registered voters, decisions were made for several importan…
The Clarksville/Montgomery County Arts & Heritage Development Council (AHDC) invites organizations seeking funding for artistic and cultural projects that benefit the community to apply for an Arts Build Communities (ABC) grant.
Between colorful Easter egg rolls and joyous church services, Tennessee families gathered around the table recently to celebrate a time of renewal. As I reflected alongside my own family, I was inspired by the strong spirit of the Volunteer State.
When Joe Biden was on the campaign trail, he promised Americans that “Our Best Days Still Lie Ahead.” But as president, he has made it his mission to dwell on the past by methodically erasing the progress made by President Trump. Biden’s recent announcement that he will abandon the Title 42 immigration policy is his most drastic move yet to make every town a border town and every state a border state.
It was the most fun ever, going behind the curtain with my mother, pulling that big lever, and feeling so excited to have helped her vote.
The Month of the Military Child is a time to recognize military children and Families for the many sacrifices they make and challenges they overcome. This annual celebration is a legacy of former Defense Secretary Casper Weinberger established in April 1986 to underscore the important role children and youth play on the armed forces community.
Judge Ketanji Brown Jackson’s inability to answer a simple question – what is a “woman?” – during her Supreme Court confirmation hearing made its way from beltway broadcasts to kitchen table chatter in a matter of hours. While the initial buzz centered on one definition, the resulting national conversation exposed a brewing culture war that radical activists hope will allow them to silence dissent and divide Americans.
Many years ago I found I shared the name of a man made forever famous in the lore of the Wild West by an event which took place in Saloon #10 in Deadwood, South Dakota Territory on Aug. 2, 1876. Also known as John McCall, “Crooked Nose” and “Broken Nose Jack,” that Jack McCall had wandered w…
Last week, Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskyy spoke remotely before a joint session of Congress and detailed the horror of Putin’s invasion. Russian troops have fired thousands of missiles, bombed hospitals filled with women and infants, and deployed an unrelenting wave of drones to strike innocent Ukrainians with deadly precision. With the bravery of Ukrainian freedom fighters on full display, Zelenskyy challenged President Biden to reject Russia’s aggressive attempt to drag the region into a state of open warfare: "being the leader of the world means to be the leader of peace."
