The dark and rainy weather outside reflected the atmosphere inside of Maddux Fuqua Hinton Funeral Home this morning, where services were held for the late Dave Ralston.
Ralston was an Early Bird Show co-host for eight and a half years, captivating listeners with his genuinely kind personality which translated perfectly over the airwaves.
The funeral home chapel was nearly full of members of the community who wanted to pay their final respects to the man who came into the world on August 28th, 1938 as David Lee Ralston—but known to the world as “Dave.”
One of Ralston’s closest friends, WHOP Sports Director Todd Hamilton, talked about Dave’s courageous and final battle with cancer.
Hamilton recalled stories on the golf course with Dave and retold stories heard many times about the experiences Ralston had at radio stations across the country over his illustrious broadcasting career.
Officiating the funeral was Fairview Tabernacle United Methodist Church pastor Gale Webb, who said it was her third funeral attended in the last week and a half, where cancer claimed a life.
Pastor Webb says cancer can claim a physical body, but the soul and memory of a person lives forever.
Ralston is survived by his daughter, Darla Jean Ralston Boulay of Orlando, Florida, his brother retired Air Force General Joe Ralston of Alaska and his sister Margaret Taylor of Fairview.
A Clarksville woman was arrested on filing a false report charges early yesterday morning after allegedly telling officers she was kidnapped and then admitting she made it up.
Clarksville Police were called to 231 10th Street just before 1:30, where 32-year old April Brigham told them three juvenile black males came to her home and forced her into their vehicle at gunpoint.
Brigham said they blindfolded her and took ten dollars cash before driving her to the A & W Hotel on Madison St, where she was released. She said she then walked to a friend’s house, where the friend called 911.
Police noticed inconsistencies in her story, such as her clothes and hair being dry despite it being a rainy night. Brigham later admitted to making up the story and was lodged in the Montgomery County Jail.
A vehicle sustained significant damage from fire on Loftus Street yesterday afternoon.
Three trucks and ten fire-fighters responded to 105 Loftus around 2:30 to the report of a vehicle on fire between two residences.
When crews arrived, they found the vehicle’s engine compartment on fire and quickly put it out. The owner of the vehicle, Holly Odoms of Loftus St., told fire fighters that she was unable to shut off the ignition before the fire.
That same electrical issue likely also caused the fire. There is no dollar amount listed for a damage estimate on the report.
