📖 Portland celebrated its Sesquicentennial in 2009 (150 years), marked from the date that the first train on the Louisville & Nashville Railroad stopped in Portland; October 31, 1859.

A book to commemorate the Sesquicentennial was published in 2009, which contained numerous pictures and snippets of Portland information from 1859 to 2009. The book sold out quickly, and there were requests for another printing. The City of Portland had the book re-printed this year, and they are now available at $34.95 each. Mayor Mike Callis visited each Portland school this week to donate a book to their library, including Oakmont in the New Deal Community.

The books will be sold by the Portland History Museum group, Highland Rim Historical Society and Friends of the Library. There may also be other non- profit groups that will have books available for sale later. A portion of the proceeds will go to the non-profit group that you purchase from.

For more information you may call Portland City Hall at 615/325-6776 ext 243.

With colder temperatures on the way, consider these heating safety tips:
▪️Keep anything that can burn, such as bedding, clothing and curtains, at least 3 feet away from the heater.
▪️Make sure the heater has an automatic shut-off, so if it tips over, it shuts off.
▪️Turn heaters off when you go to bed or leave the room.
▪️Plug portable heaters directly into outlets and never into an extension cord or power strip.
