    Director, David Alford

    What would cause a close knit community of friends and farmers to pull their curtains tight and lock their doors at sunset? What could turn brother against brother in an act of hatred and deceit? It all goes back to a single tobacco leaf that caused a fiery uproar that affected everyone in town and spanned state lines. It is said that the details surrounding this event have been so hidden and suppressed through the years that family Patriarch’s have had to die before this story could be told. Starting this weekend, David Alford is telling that story in the form of a drama based musical called SMOKE: A Ballad of the Night Riders.

    David Alford, writer and director of the well known play SPIRIT: The Authentic story of the Bell Witch is bringing to the stage in Adams, TN SMOKE:A Ballad of the Night Riders, as well as writing the lyrics to this musicals original score. «Read the rest of this article»

    Getting creative with food is an excellent way to get your kids to try new things, and it can even make an average meal fun again.

    • 1-2 tablespoons of butter
    • 4 slices of Ham

    • 2 tablespoons of milk
    • 1-2 drops of green food coloring
    • 1/4 teaspoon of salt
    • 1/4 teaspoon of pepper
    • *chopped green peppers

    Melt a teaspoon of butter in your skillet and add a drop of food coloring to the butter before adding your ham slices.

    sortingSpring is in the air, and for Clarksville Moms that means the return of The Little Lambs and Ivy consignment sale. For the past twelve years Little Lambs and Ivy has been bringing quality clothes and children’s products to local moms at a price they can afford! The sale opens to the public every Spring and Fall. Since it is Mom-driven and Mom-led, consider it like a glorified clothes swap among friends but with big rewards.

    Jeannette Smith, who has been in charge of this sale for almost a year now, and mother of two children of her own, estimates that it brings out anywhere between 600-1,000 thrifty Moms to shop with usually up to 275 consignors. «Read the rest of this article»

     

    Used toys exempt from new product safety mandate

    By | February 9, 2009 | Email This Post Print This Post
     

    used-toysAugust 14th, 2008, former President George Bush signed and set in motion The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act of 2008.  This Act was brought about by the large amount of recalled toys and baby products in the year 2007.

    The CPSIA calls for any children’s product exceeding the amount of 600-ppm (parts per million) lead content cannot be sold in the United States.  Items that fall under this Act are children’s toys, cribs, pacifiers, children’s jewelry, baby bouncer seats, walkers and jumpers. Any product that can be mouthed, or ingested by a child under the age of twelve must be tested for safety.

    This Act will begin today. One year following this date the lead count will drop to a strict 300-ppm, then continues down to 100 ppm. This law will also prohibit against children’s items containing PVC (polyvinyl chloride ) and the chemical phthalate. «Read the rest of this article»

     

    Kindermusik: parents and children making music together

    Beth Britton and Elle-girl

    This morning Elle-Girl and I attended an event held in an upstairs practice room at the incredibly renovated new Mary’s Music Store downtown. The event was a preview Kindermusik class taught by Tiffany Hilliker.

    Kindermusik is a free form way of teaching children music by positive parent interaction and helping form a well rounded child. The class starts out with a happy hello song where you bounce your young child in your lap while singing “Hello” to the other children. The class then continues to teach predictable routine practices and interactive song and dance opportunities. The children get to experience different musical instruments and play with bright colorful streamers. The classes are completely child centered, however I must admit, the parent has a really good time as well.

    As a mother of a busy toddler I thought that Elle-Girl would really get into this class. She always dances whenever music is on, she enjoys throwing mommy’s scarves up in the air and running through them, and loves singing silly songs and playing the drums on pots and pans. «Read the rest of this article»

     

    Behind the legend of St. Nick…

    Take a moment, close your eyes and picture Santa Claus.

    You have probably just pictured an older plump man with a bright, fire engine red, fur trimmed coat with matching hat, a broad black belt and gold buckle. He would be wearing shiny black boots, with a full mane of long white hair curled perfectly at the ends. You have just pictured Mr. Haddon Sundblom’s 1931 depiction of St. Nicholas for the Coca Cola company! That famous print not only boosted Coca Cola sales that winter, it set the standard for what we know today as Santa Claus.

    So if that is not Santa Claus, who is? «Read the rest of this article»
