There are many of us who take Taxi Cabs for our daily commute going to and from one place to another. Here are some safety tips, from United Cab, Music City Taxi, and Yellow Cab. Thank you for your patronage, and be safe while living in or visiting… America’s Music City, Nashville, TN! 1. When riding in a cab, make a note of the taxi cab number and information displayed on the dashboard or passenger’s door. 2. Before entering into the taxi cab, make sure that the Taxi Driver knows your destination and is willing to take you to that destination. 3. Choose a taxi cab that is well maintained as this will not only ensure your safety and comfort, but will also lessen the chances of having a mechanical breakdown during your ride. 4. Make sure that you are familiar with the route that the Taxi Driver is taking you. 5. Upon reaching your destination always check your belongings to ensure you have everything with you and nothing is left in or on the Taxi Cab. 6. Taxi Cabs ordered by phone are safer than those hailed on the street. Ask for the Taxi Cab number when ordering. 7. Take only Taxi Cabs that are clearly identified with official markings. 8. Take only licensed Taxi Cabs in which drivers display their licenses.

Off The Beaten Path The life and legend of Casey Jones and how it all came about is most fascinating and one in which we should all be proud, for it is not only the story of one man’s death, but his dedication to duty that is representative of a people and nation whose adventurous spirit helped mold the America we know today. Casey Jones had a reputation for being one of the best engineers on the rails. Neither he nor his fireman, Sim Webb, knew as they pulled out of Memphis with a train full of passengers that in the darkness of that Southern night a legend was waiting to be born. His famous last ride occurred on April 30th, 1900. He sacrificed his own life saving the lives of all of his passengers and crew. The subsequent song written of his heroism catapulted his story into international acclaim. Today in Jackson, Tennessee the historic Casey Jones Home & Railroad Museum serves as a tribute to the life and legend of Casey Jones and to the men and women of the railroad. So, all aboard for family fun at one of Tennessee’s best visited travel attractions. Featuring Brooks Shaw’s Old Country Store Restaurant, 1890’s Ice Cream Parlor, and Gift and Confectionery Shop - all accented with over 15,000 antiques on display. The Village also includes the historic Casey Jones Home and Train Store, a miniature train ride, miniature golf course, amphitheater, and a selection of unique retail shops. This unique travel destination gives the Casey Jones story accessibility to the American traveling public being located seconds off Interstate 40. Jump in one of our taxi partners for the short drive through the beautiful countryside to Jackson, TN. All aboard!

A Worthwhile Cause Prevent Child Abuse Tennessee, a state chapter of Prevent Child Abuse America, has been preventing the abuse and neglect of Tennessee’s children for 25 years. We believe in valuing children, strengthening families, and engaging communities. We are a family of friends, professionals, volunteers, donors and parents who are preventing child abuse and neglect before it ever starts. PCAT has developed a prevention network throughout the state of Tennessee, and continues to educate the public about the prevalence of child abuse and their role in child abuse prevention. We facilitate the development and support of community-based programs throughout the state. PCAT is headquartered in Nashville with a presence in all 95 counties of the state. PCAT services are available in English and Spanish. When we first met Tasha she was living in her car, pregnant and alone. Through the support of our Healthy Families TN home visitation program a family support worker has walked beside her these 5 years, supporting her in how she parented her children and providing her the tools she needed to build a strong family. Today Tasha is the parent of two healthy, happy children. She continued to work on finding adequate housing and lives in safe and stable housing. She has taken a leadership role with other parents in our program, serving on our local and state parent leadership council and was featured in last year’s “The State of Home Visitation in Tennessee” video. She is engaged, planning a wedding and looking forward to a new house in the country! Ask her and she will say that having a home visitor changed her future and that of her children. These services would not have been possible without the support of Tennesseans that care. In October 2010 she graduated the Healthy Families TN program and continues as an inspiration and mentor to other families in the program. A hand to pull her up instead of a hand out is whatPrevent Child Abuse TN is about. PCAT is holding their largest fundraiser, Snowflake 5K, on December 15th at 9am in Shelby Bottoms Park. If you are interested in participating you can register at: use the code RUNNER for $5 off of your registration fee!
