Comments

We put in at Burkesville yesterday but the water was at 6.4 mph and up in the trees. and water temp was 46 degrees. Is there a site I can go to to find out when the corp is releasing that much water. we were drift fishing with trolling boards for 12 miles and caught nothing.
In need of some work can do anything please let me know can do roofs ' clean out gutters' Lawn Care' work on houses
We had such an amazing time in and on your part of the Beautiful Cumberland River and Visiting Burksville. We Trout Fished with John Rush and Raced in the River Run. Such friendly people and nice venue.
Im looking for a place to tent camp near a boat ramp in or close to Burkesville other than behind the dam. Planning to come down next weekend
Cumberland Valley Manor provides FREE training to get your start in the Health Care field.
This might be on your bucket list, no time like the present. 🛶 Kayaking down the Cumberland. Come on out, even if you're not competitive. Come on out just for the fun and enjoyment of the beautiful Cumberland River. If you don't have a kayak, MUTT E WATERS will have rentals on site.
Gunner Pitcock pulled this sturgeon out of the water this afternoon! He was super excited!!

This bear must have heard about the River Festivus coming up August 16th -18th. However, he is not registered for any festivus event such as the Festivus Float, the Festivus 5K: Head for the Hills, or the Mighty Cumberland River Run. I bet he is a huge Jericho Woods fan and wants to see them play live on the square in Burkesville. If anyone sees him tell him to visit www.riverfestivus.com and listen to WKYR 107.9 Friday at 12:30 for Talk Around Town to learn more about the River Festivus.

**Photos by Gretchen Bryant and Officer Craig Groce**

We have received several dozen calls about a black bear running through the city limits of Burkesville. It was seen on Elm St, ran over to the Elementary School (where three of the pictures were taken), through Minit Mart parking lot, across the road towards the Veterans Alley and Cumberland Drive area (where the 4th picture was taken.) Officer Craig Groce last saw the bear running into the woods down next to the river on Cumberland Drive. With all the bear sightings lately, it was only a matter of time before one made it to town but it just ran through and found some woods to hide in. It’s just as scared of people as people are of it. If you come in contact with a bear, just stay away. Stay inside your residence or get inside your car and do not approach to get a closer look, try to feed or shoot at the bear. All are very bad ideas...and illegal!!! We know it’s here and Fish & Wildlife has been notified but there’s nothing that can be done about it unless it’s a direct threat to persons or property...just passing through doesn’t count! Once again, if you see the bear, enjoy from a safe distance and let it go on it’s way...that’s the safest thing for you and for the bear!

Cumberland County Chamber of Commerce

Have you driven around and noticed the 20 bright American Flags welcoming you into the city, along with the beautiful bunting displayed on the courthouse? These are made possible by the generous sponsors of Partners With Pride and members of the Cumberland County Chamber of Commerce and are installed and removed by volunteers of each organization. These flags were also purchased through the American Legion which gives credit to our local American Legion Post 119 so that they can further purchase patches, flags for Veterans graves, and various other items the legion needs. These flags have been displayed during Memorial Day weekend, will be displayed now through Independence Day, and again during Veterans Day. We appreciate all the sponsors and members who’s donations are making our community beautiful and one to be proud of! If you see a sponsor of Partners With Pride or a member of the Chamber of Commerce, make sure to thank them for their donation!
