Getting Real with Abby

Getting Real with Abby The goal of my page is providing a venue about mental health and social issues, and creating a dialog and enjoying a few laughs. There is such stigma about mental health and social concerns that people are too quick to hush, look the other way and not want to deal with the issues that are staring us all in the face.

We cannot continue to ignore these issues as the repercussions are enormous.

As most of you know I was recently on Forged in Fire, season 8 episode 22. I want to thank the Middle TN and Blacksmithing community for all of your cheers and support. I am humbled by the amount of messages and well wishes I have recieved over this past week. I also want to thank TCAT Livingston and CHS for giving me the opportunity to teach and inspire the young people in our community to be better versions of themselves.

I am proud to announce that my stay at CHS is assured for next year! All my classes are completely full! I am excited to see what the next school year brings, but I am definitely ready for Summer Break.

With the school year over, I'll be spending most of my time getting my storefront, The Iron Will Gallery, in Sparta TN up and running. Thank you all for being patient with me and for all the support. I cant tell you how excited I am to be part of the Sparta community. Feel free to stop in and say Hello!

So many of you participated in the polls regarding yesterday about your relationship with your mother. Here are the results:
-Over 80% of you said your mom struggled liking her body
-Over 50% of you said your mom body shamed you
-Over 85% of you said your mom frequently dieted or was trying to lose weight.
-Less than 25% had a mom that actually celebrated her body.
Yes, your mother’s relationship (good and not-so-good) affects the relationship you have with your body. This does not mean that this is the only reason why you may struggle with your body. It is not. There are many reasons why you may suffer from a negative body image.

Dog park construction underway at Cane Creek Park
COOKEVILLE – Cookeville’s first public dog park is taking shape and could be ready to open by this summer at Cane Creek Park.
Cookeville Leisure Services Director Rick Woods said construction is underway and equipment purchases are being made for the 1.5-acre park that will include fenced-in areas for dogs to run leash-free, as well as agility equipment, shade structures and more.
Sidewalks are complete for the 1.5-acre dog park being constructed at Cane Creek Park. The park will include shade structures, fencing, dog agility equipment and more.
“We’re excited to get it under
construction and be closer to
having a nice, safe park for dogs and their owners,” Woods said.
The City of Cookeville had been awarded a $100,000 grand prize grant in 2019 from Tennessee Dog Park Dash, funded by The Boyd Foundation.
A parking lot has been built near the dog park site, across from Cane Creek Recreation Center on CC Camp Road, and sidewalks are finished.
“The next steps for us will be getting the shade structures in place and fencing done all the way around,” Woods said. “Trees will be planted next week. We’ll put shrubs in after the fence is up.”
The park will include separate sections for smaller dogs and larger dogs, a variety of play components (paws table, king of the hill, dog walk, crawl tunnel, jump over, hoop jump and fire hydrant), benches and shade areas for dogs and their owners, watering stations, and pet waste stations and receptacles.

In honor of Black History Month, we will spotlight some exceptional and historically important black women from the South each week. This week we will spotlight Ida B. Wells-Barnett (1862–1931) who began a daring editorial campaign against lynching in her Memphis Free Speech newspaper in 1892. After her office was sacked, she continued her fearless crusade in New York City as a journalist and traveling lecturer, organizing anti-lynching societies in many cities. Wells-Barnett later published “A Red Record” in 1895, a detailed book about lynching. Throughout her life, she remained militant in her demand for justice for black Americans and was an active Suffragist.
