THE CUMBERLAND RIVER is a major waterway of the Southern United States. The 688-mile- long (1,107 km) river drains almost 18,000 square miles (47,000 km2) of southern Kentucky and north-central Tennessee. The river flows generally west from a source in the Appalachian Mountains to its confluence with the Ohio River near Paducah, Kentucky, and the mouth of the Tennessee River. Major tributaries include the Obey, Caney Fork, Stones, and Red rivers. Although the Cumberland River basin is predominantly rural, there are also some large cities on the river, including Nashville and Clarksville, both in Tennessee. Also, the river system has been extensively developed for flood control, with major dams impounding both the main stem and many of its important tributaries.

Cheatham County is one of the most beautiful counties in Middle Tennessee with its rolling hills, lush vegetation, sprawling river, and quaint small towns ready to welcome you with open arms. Saving the beauty of Cheatham County is a collaborative effort between government, private businesses, and organizations by educating our youth to grow with personal responsibility, stellar citizenship and character. Caring for our county’s beauty starts at home and strengthened through education.

This park is called Riverbluff Park and the residents of Ashland City and Cheatham County have the luxury of visiting the park and taking advantage of all it has to offer. As someone who produces triathlons and other endurance races across the Southeast, I know a great race venue when I see one and the first time I laid eyes on Ashland City’s Riverbluff Park and the amenities Cheatham County had to offer, I quickly decided that a triathlon (which includes a swim, bike and a run) would be an instant success utilizing Riverbluff Park as the venue. What I had not


factored in was how wonderful and impactful the great working relationship

has been between our race

company and the Town of Ashland City. From the moment we presented the race idea to the Parks & Recreation department back in 2015 to where we are today, Ashland City parks, police, fire, public works, and Mayor’s office have been outstanding partners and providing our race participants an unrivaled welcome mat to the town. Since we launched the race in 2016, the Riverbluff Triathlon is one of the nation’s fastest-growing triathlons and has been voted by readers of Nashville Fit Magazine as “Best Triathlon” in Middle Tennessee. The

future of the race is also very bright. With new greenways, amenities and race distances being offered,

Riverbluff Triathlon has quickly

become a “must attend” race for locals and is becoming a regional race destination attracting racers from the likes of Memphis, Louisville, Atlanta, Knoxville and Chattanooga.

BE SAFE ONTHETRAIL. By Lori Ray, M.D. - Regents Medical Center Cheatham County is full of beautiful trails and walkways. I remember as a child spending Easters at Cheatham Dam soaking up the sun and water. Now there are many more options in our county for walking and enjoying the outdoors and I encourage you to try them all...but be prepared! BLISTERS are caused by friction between your skin and socks and/or footwear that don’t fit well. Make sure your socks and shoes aren’t slipping up and down your feet when you walk and keep your feet dry. If you get a blister and it’s painful, drain it with a sterile needle, allow the roof of the blister to stay as a cover and bandage it. SPRAINS happen most commonly to the ankle while walking. Good hiking boots with sturdy ankle support will help prevent an ankle sprain. Also, try to stay as much as possible on even ground and use a hiking pole. To treat an ankle sprain follow the RICE protocol: REST immediately, ICE, COMPRESSION, ELEVATION above the heart. CUTS happen commonly from branches and bushes. Treat with antiseptic and bandage. DEHYDRATION prevention and treatment is simple: take and drink plenty of water. Staying hydrated also helps prevent muscle cramps. SUNBURN can be prevented with sunblock, a sun hat or cap, and sun protective clothing. Sunburn contributes to skin cancer, cataracts, and the dreaded wrinkle not to mention a bad sunburn can ruin a beautiful day. Treat by applying a cool cloth or ice pack. Aloe vera or other after sun remedies can be applied.

Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail

T he railbed going from Nashville to Clarksville via Ashland City began as the Tennessee Central Railroad, a linkage of the Tennessee Midland, the Tennessee, and Pacific, the Nashville and Knoxville, and the Cincinnati Southern. Its charter was granted in 1893 and the leg to Clarksville began in 1901 when the city council of Nashville, referendums in Cheatham (to provide $50,000) and Montgomery (to provide $100,000) counties authorized the building of the line. The line to Clarksville from Nashville carried lumber, scrap paper, ore, plastic, and brick. It was abandoned by Tennessee Central in 1960, then it was operated by Illinois Central Gulf, then Nashville and Ashland City, then Cheatham Country Rail Authority, then Walking Horse and Eastern Railroad, then McCormick, Ashland City, and Nashville Railroad. About the Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail I n 1992 a group of trail enthusiasts from different places in Middle Tennessee got together to discuss the possibility of turning the railroad bed from Nashville to Clarksville into a trail. The goal of that group was a long trail from Nashville to at least as far north as Land Between the Lakes. At the same time, the Mayor and Vice-Mayor of Ashland City were considering

leasing part of the rail bed and turning it into a trail. These two groups met up by accident at a Greenway conference late in 1993 and starting working on the common goal of making a trail. Ashland City took over the responsibility of developing the 7 miles from downtown to Chapsmansboro Road. The other group formed the Cumberland River Corridor Task Force and worked to develop the entire rail bed, often in conjunction with theAshland City group. Subsequent inquiries by the groups concerning the segment from Nashville toAshland City were discouraged by the County Executive at the time who believed that the railroad would eventually be restored. As of 2004, that segment is active under the ownership of the Cheatham County Rail Authority, operated by Nashville &Western RR. The Town of Ashland City, under Mayor Mary Grey Jenkins, leased the five miles fromMarks Creek (Chapmansboro Road) to the next intersection with Chapmansboro Road (about 4 miles) and about .8 miles beyond that intersection. The city submitted a grant proposal to the Tennessee Department of Transportation to develop the four miles of rail bed fromMarks Creek to Chapmansboro Road. The grant proposal was awarded in 1994 for the amount of $183,750 (including 20%matching


Cheatham Dam Road, the city obtained an easement for several hundred feet from Dr. Doty. The result is the Eagle Pass segment, a 3-mile link in the Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail. In 1999 the Town of Ashland City bought the next four miles taking the trail to within a few hundred feet of the Cheatham-Montgomery county line. This segment is not yet open to the public. Once it is opened the Cumberland River Bicentennial Trail will be approximately 11 miles long .


funds from the city.) With these funds, the city decked the bridges, cleared the rail bed, paved about a mile, and put in trailheads. The Friends of the Trail made signs, conducted cleanups, educational programs, held Wildflower Walks, and engaged in numerous activities to promote the trail. The trestle segment of the trail became anAshland City park in its formal opening in 1997. In 2004 this segment of trail was completely paved with the help of a second grant from the Tennessee Department of Transportation. The next segment of the trail, 3 miles north of the developed segment, was owned by two parties: the Cheatham Rail Authority (.8 miles leased by the city) and Dr. Doty who had bought about a mile of the rail bed fromMontell Metals. In 2000, the Tennessee Parks and Greenways Foundation raised funds to buy 1.7 miles from Dr. Doty to add to the .8 mile leased by the city to form 2.7 miles. To make the trail go to a destination,

READY. AIM. THROW. Disc golf has quickly become one of Cheatham County’s most popular recreational activities. The county is home to two disc golf courses – one in Burns Park in Kingston Springs and one in John C. Preacher Poole Park in Ashland City. Both 9-hole courses were designed by HB Clark, who has created nearly 100 courses in nine states. The Kingston Springs course, located along the scenic Harpeth River, opened in 2015. The Ashland City course, which weaves its way around the park’s walking track, opened in 2019. Disc golf, in a nutshell, is a game that plays and is scored like traditional golf, but rather than hitting balls with a club into holes, players throw flying discs (similar to Frisbees) from a designated tee to a metal, chained basket known as the “hole.” Disc golf is an excellent form of recreation that gives people a reason to get out and be active. It is played all year round and can be played casually, or as a highly competitive sport. Burns Park • 501 Park Street • Kingston Springs, TN John C.

Camping is a fun way to get family and friends together to enjoy the outdoors. Enjoying the beauty and nature of the woods can be fun — if you follow the proper safety precautions. Follow these tips to help ensure your camping trip is safe and enjoyable.

1. Receive camp physicals and up-to-date vaccinations 2. Know your surroundings. Look for landmarks at the campsite and on hikes. While hiking, look at the trail to familiarize yourselves with your surroundings. 3. Prepare healthy and safe food •Pack foods in tight, waterproof bags or containers •Keep food in an insulated cooler •When cooking and storing food, separate raw foods from cooked foods •Cook foods to proper temperatures •Wash hands often and use hand sanitizer if water is not available 4. Avoid wild animals Store all food in sealed containers and out of the reach of animals. Avoid touching, feeding and getting near wild animals. Watch wild animals from a safe distance in their natural surroundings.

7. Lookout for poison ivy, oak and sumac Avoid touching any unknown plants. Any part of your body that comes in contact with a poisonous plant should be washed immediately with cool water to help remove the oil that causes the allergic reaction. Calamine lotion or hydrocortisone cream may help to stop the itching with poison ivy. 8. Protect from bug bites and ticks Mosquitoes, ticks, and other insects can cause certain diseases. Apply insect repellent containing DEET to clothes and exposed skin. Check for ticks daily, and remove them promptly. Wear long sleeves, pants, and other light-colored clothing to help prevent and spot ticks more easily. 9. Campfire safety tips •Build or use a campfire pit away from overhanging tree branches •Make sure the campfire has a metal fire ring or is encircled with rocks •Keep a bucket of water and shovel nearby •Never leave a campfire unattended •Be sure to put out your campfire completely before you leave •Use fireproof cooking equipment 10. Protect against carbon monoxide poisoning Never use fuel-burning equipment such as gas stoves, heaters, lanterns, and charcoal grills inside a tent, camper, or other enclosed shelter. It can cause dangerous levels of carbon monoxide to build up.

5. Protect yourself from the sun Wear sunscreen, lipscreen and sunglasses. 6. Avoid water-related illness and injuries •Never swim alone •Take a shower before and after swimming •Always wear a life jacket if you plan to ride in a boat, canoe, or other water vehicle

STEM designation provides exciting opportunities

Ashland City Elementary STEM Academy students Christopher Biggs and Jeremiah Adkisson work on a project in their STEM class, which is taught by Kristin McQueen.

Greetings from the Cheatham County School District, where “Five-Star Quality, Five-Star Education, Achieving Excellence Together” is our guiding principle. The district is proud of the many accomplishments achieved in 2020 – from dramatic gains in our students’ academic performance to numerous awards and recognitions earned by our talented staff and students. One of the most prestigious accomplishments in 2020 was Ashland City Elementary School being awarded the Tennessee STEM School Designation. This honor was developed with the guidance of the Tennessee Department of Education and the STEM Leadership Council to identify and recognize schools in their commitment to teaching STEM (science, technology, engineering and mathematics) and integrating strategies that ultimately prepare students for post- secondary college and career success in the 21st century. Schools that receive the Tennessee STEM School Designation serve as models from which other schools may visit and learn. Schools awarded the Tennessee STEM School Designation are evaluated through a rigorous application process. Schools must complete a self- evaluation, participate in interviews and host site visits with the Tennessee STEM Designation review team. To reflect the designation, the school was renamed Ashland City Elementary STEM Academy. To date, only 48 schools in Tennessee have earned this designation.
