Posted by: | Posted on: February 27, 2015

GoFigure1

Storybooks present enjoyable, meaningful, interactive math explorations to children and adults in Go Figure! – a national traveling exhibit that opens March 1st at the Customs House Museum.

Go Figure! transforms charming children’s books into a kid-sized world where children and adults can have fun exploring math with familiar characters such as Arthur, Frog and Toad, and the Three Bears. Each of the five colorful larger-than-life books in the exhibit includes a math-related activity such as measuring, weighing, or sorting, along with labels to guide parents. Featured books are Arthur’s Pet Business, The Doorbell Rang, The Quilt, Frog and Toad are Friends: A Lost Button, and Goldilocks and the Three Bears.

“Using familiar children’s books, the exhibit offers our community delightful experiences with simple math and demonstrates that math is learned naturally by the inventive, curious mind. Children ages two to seven years old and their parents or caregivers will enjoy the lively graphics of the exhibit and the related programs and activities,” said Terri Jordan, Curator of Exhibits.

Come and experience how parents’ involvement in learning can help foster a child’s natural curiosity and intuitive sense of math, and make a difference in school and later life. Go Figure! will be on exhibit through June 14th. Developed by Minnesota Children’s Museum in partnership with the American Library Association and supported by the National Science Foundation.

Located at the corner of Second and Commerce Streets, the Customs House Museum is the second largest general museum in Tennessee. For more information on above events contact Terri Jordan, Exhibits Curator, at 931-648-5780 or terri@customshousemuseum.org.


Mega Million Scam: Clarksville Victim

Posted by: | Posted on: February 26, 2015

Scam Incident Report:

On 02/24/2015 at 7:33p, the Clarksville Police Department responded to an Obtaining By False Pretenses call at a Clarksville residence. The victim stated that at 8:30a he got a call from Micheal Anderson, who stated that he works for the “Mega Millions” and that he picked the victim’s name from a phone log. Mr. Anderson told the victim that he had won 1.8 Million dollars, an SLX 550 Mercedes Benz, a gas card, and 5,000 dollars cash each month for two years from the Mega Millions. The victim stated that his wife sent a Money Gram from Walmart for the amount of 535.00 dollars to a Paris, AR address. At about 1:30p, Mr. Anderson called back and asked that the victim change the address for the Money Gram to a Star City, AR address. At that time, the victim’s wife went back to Walmart and made the changes to the Money Gram as requested by Mr. Anderson. At 4:00p the victim spoke with a James Robert Globber, who also stated that he works for Mega Millions in the finance department. Mr. Globber explained to the victim that he needed to fill out a form for drop off verification for the vehicle delivery, which was to be delivered by “AAA.” He stated that the victim also needed to send another 43,854.25 dollars for taxes and processing fees. The victim told Mr. Globber that he did not have the money and could only send 10,000.00 dollars. Mr. Globber then told the victim that if he could send 17,003.19 dollars for the fees that would be enough.

The Clarksville Police Department will continue to share this information as long as these incidents continue to surface. The CPD will do its best in looking out for its Clarksville citizens, citizens in the surrounding areas, and citizens that follow us on Twitter or Facebook. Mega Million Scam TIPS are included below.

“These scams all have one thing in common: They try to trick you into sending them money or personal information by claiming that you have won a large lottery prize (http://www.megamillions.com/news-releases/beware-of-fake-lottery-scams).”

TIPS: This information came from the Mega Million website (the link is included below)

“*If someone says you have won a lottery that you have never played, be suspicious. You can’t win a legitimate lottery if you didn’t buy a ticket.

* If you have caller-ID on your phone, check the area code when someone calls to tell you you’ve won. If it is from a foreign country, that is a red flag. Also, be aware that some con artists use technology that allows them to disguise their area code: although it may look like they’re calling from your state, they could be anywhere in the world.

* Be suspicious if an e-mail contains misspellings or poor grammar, or if the person who called you uses poor English.

* If you are told that you need to keep your “win” confidential, be suspicious.

* No real lottery tells winners to put up their own money in order to collect a prize they have already won. If you have to pay a fee to collect your winnings, you haven’t won.

* Just because a real lottery is mentioned does not necessarily make it a real prize. Someone may be using the lottery’s name without its permission or knowledge.

* Never give out personal information or send money unless you verify the company’s or solicitor’s legitimacy.

* If they offer to wire the “winnings” directly into your bank account, do not give them your bank account information.

* If you are told that you can “verify” the prize by calling a certain number, that number may be part of the scam. Instead of calling it, you should look up the name of the lottery or organization on your own to find out its real contact information.

* If you think someone on the phone is trying to scam you, hang up immediately. If you engage them in conversation, your name and contact information could end up on a list that’s shared with other scammers (http://www.megamillions.com/news-releases/beware-of-fake-lottery-scams).”

Do you like fishing? Are you interested in aquatic environments? Clarksville Parks & Recreation has once again teamed up with the National Fishing in Schools Program to offer a class in basic fly fishing!

Class will be held at the Crow Community Center on Thursdays from 4 to 5 p.m., March 5 through March 26, and is open to grades 6-12. The cost of the class is $10 per person, along with $5 Center ID. Space is available but limited, so sign up now using the registration link found at www.cityofclarksville.com.

The National Fishing in Schools Program educates participants about fish, insects, aquatic environments, resource stewardship and conservation using fishing, and learning the skills of casting.

Thursday Weather Updates

Posted by: | Posted on: February 19, 2015

Clarksville patrol officers battled fiercely cold temperatures overnight as they handled lower than average calls-for -service. Calls, however, have increased from the very low numbers of the last three days. Alarm calls and domestic disturbances topped the list in all three districts. Officers worked six crashes between 6 p.m. Wednesday and 6 a.m. Thursday. Three of those crashes involved injuries. There were five motorist assists in the city overnight.

A single power outage was reported in the Jordan Drive area when a transformer reportedly blew on Pointer Lane, affecting local residences and at least one traffic light.

Supervisors in all three community policing districts report that main roads are in good shape. All districts, however, report difficulty getting around side roads and parking lots. There was at least one report of sheets of ice floating down the Red River. Officers attempted to stay as warm and dry as their work allowed throughout the bitter, subzero weather. Sergeant Ben Blackmon summed up the twelve-hour overnight shift this way: “It was miserable.”
