OUR New Senator

I knew that this was being discussed, but did not readily know that the decision was imminent. The Sumner County Commission has voted, and elected an interim senator for the 18th district to fill the void left by the election of Diane Black to 6th Congressional Seat.
Our new State Senator: Ferrelle Haille –
Gallatin pharmacist Ferrell Haile was named interim state senator of the 18th District in a unanimous vote by the Sumner County Commission on Monday.
A lifelong Sumner County resident, he is co-owner of Perkins Drugs in Gallatin and a cattle farmer. Haile, who lost his bid for state Senate in 2000 to Jo Ann Graves, has no plans to run for the office in the upcoming special election.
Note I say "our" because lest we forget, this is not all to do with Sumner County. The 18th district is our seat, as well. I trust that Mr. Haille, and soon to be Senator Haille will show the same time and attention shown by Senator Black in representing her constituents of Robertson County.
The timeline is as follows: the primary election for this seat will be held on January 20, 2011 and the general election is to be held on March 20, 2011.


  1. After a decade in the NFL searching for the right pieces and the right team, Carson Palmer has found a home in Arizona. NFL Jerseys And the Cardinals want him to stay awhile.

    The team announced Friday that it signed Palmer to a three-year extension, which will keep him under contract through 2017. NFL Media Insider Ian Rapoport reported that the pact is worth $50 million with roughly $20 million guaranteed through 2015, according to a source who has seen the deal.

    It's a remarkable story for a quarterback nearly a decade removed from his playing for his only legitimate title-contending team -- the 2005 Cincinnati Bengals with Chad Johnson and T.J. Houshmandzadeh. Palmer tore his knee ligaments in the team's first Nike Air Max 2015 Shoes playoff game that season, sparking an NFL rule change and a wandering search for Palmer's mojo. Enter Bruce Arians.

    The Cardinals coach has an aggressive vertical style that complements Palmer's game, and the weapons to make him look better. Palmer is no longer a top-five quarterback like he once cheap sale jerseys was, but he still throws four to five passes each game that few quarterbacks could make. He's supported by NFL Jerseys Store a wildly talented supporting cast and a strong defense. Perhaps most importantly, he's learned to limit his mistakes.

    The contract extension indicates that Palmer will get more than just this season to win it all in Arizona, but we suspect very little is promised after 2015. Nike Roshe Run Palmer knows more than anyone this is a year-to-year league, and the Cardinals will likely build in contractual protection so they can easily move on from the 34-year-old if he nosedives new nike nfl jerseys or gets injured.

    The contract, however, does take the pressure off Arizona from finding a "quarterback of the future." They could still draft a quarterback to develop in the middle rounds next season if anyone strikes Arians' fancy, but they are comfortable with Palmer and backup wholesale jerseys Drew Stanton in the meantime. This Nike Air Max 90 Cardinals team has a chance to go deep in the playoffs, and Palmer must relish this final chance to rewrite his career.
