Good afternoon I'm Mary Esther Reed I'm the mayor here in Smyrna and welcome to the 43rd annual town Christmas parade. we're glad to have you with us and today's Christmas around the world is the theme and we have a special guest with here with us here for the second year in a row Rudy Kalis. Rudy we're so glad to have you back It's wonderful. last year we got cold this year I had to put sunscreen on my head. well somebody called for the good weather today. sure got it you know. what it's been so great to see the people lining the street all the way from Nolan Drive all the way to KMart. I was blown away just coming in because they were already lining up so this is remarkable 43 years? 43. Now Rudy 43 years sounds about like the time you spent at WSMV. you know that's exactly right. The first year that I was here is I guess that and Richard Petty's number put all those together and we're good. there you go. we even have some pictures that Oh missed out you're going on oh you see that there you go see the that was a wig I was wearing back then yeah driving the lane with a wig. we had a channel 4 charity team with the squeezy little shorts played about 30 games a year some of them out here in Smyrna it was fun all for charity and how quickly time flies. Oh military service spent four years in the Air Force but it paid for my schooling. I'm always thankful the military did all of that how about that look would you boys before and after you got that right then the good Lord said that boys a little cocky I believe I'll snatch the hair off his head and so you got the guy on the left doing the guy on the right there thought he was cool. we do oh you see that's when I was really sharp see the look it's like I know everything but do you know what you came in to so many people's lives in so many people's homes I can remember growing up watching you on channel 4 so... there it is I've even seen that sweater today I brought it along as a backup just in case that's Rudolph the red-nosed reindeer that fits me you or the sweater oh yeah you got that right both of them look at Bill folks from a long time remember Bill Hall a long time weatherman who was a weekend newscaster with me when I first started. my you found some old pictures and love farming and fishing. oh gosh II love he finally got me to eat some chitlins once it stayed down about 30 seconds. that's probably 30 seconds longer than it would have stayed with me. well you know I'm so excited about this parade today we have got over a hundred and twenty applicants in this parade I can't wait that'll be great they each come through and you know all the folks and they all know you and that's the best part I'm just sort of eye candy and get a chance to watch and enjoy the folks. You know what's the nicest thing when you look out here at the crowd you see generations of family members out enjoying the day and making memories with family and to me that's what this is about. you told me about the difference between what 8,500 people at one point in Smyrna and now you've got 50,000 - you're doing something right. we are doing something right. I think we're all blessed to live here in Middle Tennessee. That's it that's it this is where I'm staying and I love being here today. Any good Christmas memories growing up for you? Well you know I was a little, remember now I was born in Germany so I could literally remember being five years old seeing st. Nicholas come in and he gave me like an orange or something and he goes kind of so heavy deep snow I always remember there's a little kid doing Christmas concerts from school and such right there they're wonderful then seeing the kids you know we both have children seeing them open up their presents for the first time with our eyes get real big and absolutely absolutely and I can't wait you know I think Santa might make an appearance today before the end of the parade. I think he might make a little time for us here in Smyrna. I think he knows how good we've all been. all right well and we're gonna start off with bands and we got flags and here we go. we absolutely do and our first group is going to be our police chief kevin arnold and i can't tell you what a great job kevin does for us here in the town of smyrna and right now we have eighty-eight police officers and you know 34 of those police officers are veterans of our armed forces. really? you know I was military police for the four years I was in the service and literally thought very seriously about being a police officer when I got out but somehow I thought I'd run my mouth instead. well you know these men and women put their lives on the line every day and I can't say enough about our police force. you know seven of our officers have attended the National Forensic Academy in Oak Ridge and less than five percent nationwide of law enforcement have attended this training so they get quite a bit of training. and right behind Chief Arnold is our Smyrna fire department honor guard. we're always glad to see them and our honor guard was established in September of 1999 and since the establishment of the guard the members have been called upon to perform a variety of ceremonial functions. so our citizens are used to seeing our honor guard and Rudy you're gonna tell us a little bit about who our members are today? Well we've got the lieutenant Kenny Campbell also the ladder driver which I think is a fascinating job but always wanted to do that but of course they'd never left me. And that is Ryan Kellum and also we've got the engine drive that is Nick Link, engine driver is Jerry Mosley engine driver as well as Daniel Brownlow. so we've got them in attendance. I was with them the other day and I said how do you practice to get to be a driver? They were talking about just getting out in the community and driving a little bit obviously not to emergencies to begin with and just practice until you get to become the driver. Two special breeds you get from Police Department and Fire Department those are people that say it's almost like a mission in life as opposed to just a job because it is tough, tough work and we have to celebrate them. You know you'll also see our firemen dressed in full uniform as if they were going into a fire and one of the reasons we do this is because we want the children to see in case it was an emergency in their home and it was filled with smoke exactly what the people that are coming in to help them because for a little kid that sometimes can look pretty scary. That's a real education you told me that. See my first thought which I told you is that I always connected to 911 and how they went up those stairs and and just makes me appreciate them even more but what you said makes a lot of sense. Absolutely you know in 1916 the need for fire protection was realized by the citizens of Smyrna and prior to that that date the only fire protection was a bucket brigade or the occasional barrel placed under the downspout so our fire chief is Chief Bill Culbertson and he is a little under the weather and I'm hoping he's watching today and I just wanted to tell him that we're thinking about him and that we hope that he gets well soon. Tell me that's not a thrill for the kids to be able to ride there. Can I pull the horn just once and blow it? Now if this isn't a group of rough ones coming after the fire department I'm not sure what is. Here we have our Smyrna Town Council and we have Vice Mayor Mark Adkins and his wife Connie who works at Smyrna elementary school and we have Raquel Peebles and her son and daughter. Raquel is our newest council member and then we have Tim Morrell and his wife Donna. Glad to see them. You know everybody Mayor! And here's the judge. It's always good to know the judge yeah. oh really Here comes the judge yes and Brittany Stevens is our court clerk. glad to see Brittany. see that's fun they love you when you're throwing out candy. You always have to ration your candy at the first cause you always want to throw it out but you got to hold on to it because there's always a lot towards the end. I've been at some parades where I was up near the front and throwing out candy got the end didn't have it and boy I got called names yes. and there's Lori North. There's a little one sleeping in the ambulance next we have our ambulance service. You know they always do a great job hold there's a job for you my goodness. yes now we have Melissa Harrell who is our circuit court clerk. nice to be able to ride in a convertible on a day like today wave and smile and enjoy the weather. last year would have been a little cold. yeah but that was almost Christmas type weather but this is this is a lot more fun for the fans that are out the people that are here. And here we have Heather Dawbarn who is our Register of Deeds here for the county. It's always nice to see these elected officials out in the parade. yeah they represent the people they're the ones they've been voted in they want to thank the people for voting them so good for them. That's nicely decorated look at this is Lisa Duke Crowell she is our court clerk for Rutherford County. I'll tell you these individuals go to so much work and getting their floats or their vehicles ready and then purchasing candy to throw out for the kids so they always do a good job. Remember putting floats together back in high school for homecoming the tissue paper? They've changed that now. Now they do it in little balls and put it in the chicken wire. The next time you see a homecoming float like at a college, look they make it in little balls and pushed in. See I learned something else. Yes and here we have Dawn white who is our state representative so glad to see them out today. It's pretty good walk for them now for the length of the parade. It is a nice little walk. You for sure get your steps in on your Fitbit, wouldn't ya? I've got mine on and it just told me to get up and move! Now this entry is Mike Sparks who's also one of our state representatives but I'll tell you they love getting to see this truck every year why because it's so big if you like power there you go. there you go. After Mike you'll get to see one of our newest high schools here in Rutherford County. it's the Stewart's Creek High School band and they are so proud to be part of our 43rd annual smyrna Christmas parade and this band is under the direction of Debbie Burton and Michael Chester. Look at the size of this group what a band I've been at football games we've covered them. First of all the school was beautiful and then you get this band in the way they look and the plumes on top they're doing it the right way nice. And they represented us at the Pearl Harbor Parade. They absolutely did a couple of years ago. Wow! Let's take a listen to this band... What a great sound. Absolutely And here we have Cecil Ginny Williams, from Gil's Ace Hardware we're so I'm so glad to see them look at that truck oh the tractor that you see here is the town of Smyrna food drive float and for those of you who don't know, for the past three years we've been asking parade participants to bring canned goods for our nourished Food Bank and we've also been asking those of you that have that are coming to watch the parade - to bring canned goods for our food bank. so we wanted us to give back. There you go - so part of it it's a beauty the parade enjoy that people get their floats in there they're their messages out but at the same time you've got a wonderful call. it's good for you absolutely and I will tell you we also have a trophy for that and last year Crye-Leike Realty won the trophy but I heardLancaster Christian Academy called them and told him they were coming after that trophy this year! I like it I like it. Little competition little competition well this is one of my favorite parts of the parade it's the Shriners and for those of you who don't know they're a fraternity based a fun fellowship and the Masonic principles of brotherly love relief and truth with nearly two hundred temples or chapters in several countries and thousands of clubs around the world and the Shriners Hospital for Children was founded in 1922 with the goal of providing expert medical care for children with no financial burden to the patients or the families. Look at that hot rod Do they still bring out the clowns in the little cars have you seen I mean I see some but it's been okay I don't remember the last time but it seemed to me that every time I've seen them they've had yeah look at this see I like clowns. Some kids get afraid of clowns. yeah but when you out when you are one you don't worry about that's right. Next we have our Rutherford County Sheriff's Office float which features - a Charlie Brown's Christmas classic and you know Linus talks about the meaning of Christmas his message is about the birth of Christ and it portrays the ways why Christmas was celebrated around the world and the Angels praised God saying glory to God in the highest and on earth peace and goodwill toward men. and there's our Sheriff Mike Fitzhugh. I'll tell you Mike does an absolutely wonderful job here in the county so always glad to see sheriff Fitzhugh. Look at the little one on the float that's so beautiful stands for the right things that's what Christmas is all about. I think that's Woodstock I guess so dressed up that way yes what a great float.I want to sing but it won't sound very good. If I do we have mounted patrol division of the Sheriff's Department as well we see that we see them a lot at the ball games and parades. It sure is nice to know they're always here to keep us safe well I love the animals and for them to be able to handle them and when they show up that mean they they attract people and at the same time it's kind of an imposing figure so it's a it's a lot of things a lot of tradition it's beautiful that they take good care of them. Here we go, here we have the American Legion Post 288 and they they serve veterans in the Smyrna area they sponsor support various youth activities such as the American Legion Boys State law enforcement officer of the Year award, firefighter of the Year award American Legion Oracle contest American Legion baseball and the Eagle Scout nominations and they love serving our community. Got a float full. I love seeing all ages The older ones are saying don't hang on kid and the younger one is saying let me at it. Here is Azalea Court. The assisted-living by Americans in Smyrna Tennessee and Miss Missy is driving the bus. She and I grew up together really she does a wonderful job there at Azalea Court. She's waving. She sure is and it's our person-centered approach to care that puts residents and their families at the heart of everything they do families throughout Rutherford County have trusted us for quality assistant living for years. And here we have Nissan. They began production 34 years ago when this little white pickup you see here rolled off the line June 16, 1983. Since then, the town plant has built more than 12 million cars trucks and suv's. They build vehicles that are exported to 60 foreign markets around the world from Argentina to Zimbabwe and they employ 10,000 people who work to build 600,000 vehicles each year. It's just amazing and I told you when we fly in a helicopter to cover high school football we'll go over the plant and it's just amazing how many cars are out there the size of that so that's been magnificent and I can't believe it's been that many years. Seems like yesterday the big announcement we all got excited about them coming. Look at those cars they've gotten changed now over the years. You're being pointed at. I am. That time I don't think it was a bad point. Okay. I'm used to getting a bad point. Look at that one that looks pretty good. I like to hear the motor And here comes our food drive winners from last year and this year they put in 1,750 non-perishable items yesterday. Oh we'll have to see if there's someone who can beat that. Wow. They are involved in our community in so many different ways but that's revolving on top there too. Yes They say they hope the the elves enjoy their experience of Christmas around the world. Here's our Smyrna Parks and Recreation Volunteer of the year participants riding on the float.

different so throwback to some different principles and integrity that are just great to learn and for adults participating in local troops from Smyrna to Laverne Wow good for them and the people that work with them they have to be specially screened to make sure they're the right folks were the right spirit about them and then and all good things can happen you know this these folks right in front

equipment rental and it's a family owned and operated business that values and treats their employees like part of the family they're based out of Buffalo New York with branches in six states including Knoxville and Nashville so if you need a lift call sky works equipment rental those things are pretty cool we've needed them for some of the work that we've done television wise and when they go up a long way and they've got to be a sturdy base so that's a good surface there are you scared of heights Japan's to some degree you know I mean I've gone skydiver you said what are your

Background

17 U.S. Representatives had been elected in April 1808 to a term in the 11th United States Congress beginning on March 4, 1809. William Denning never took his seat, and eventually resigned, leaving a vacancy in the 2nd District. The other 16 representatives' term would end on March 3, 1811. The congressional elections were held together with the State elections in late April 1810, about ten months before the term would start on March 4, 1811, and about a year and a half before Congress actually met on November 4, 1811.

Congressional districts

After the U.S. census of 1800, New York's representation in the House was increased to 17 seats. On March 30, 1802, the New York State Legislature had re-apportioned the congressional districts, dividing New York County seemingly at random into two districts. After the election of one Democratic-Republican and one Federalist in 1802, the Dem.-Rep. majority in the State Legislature gerrymandered the two districts together in an Act passed on March 20, 1804, so that two congressmen would be elected on a general ticket by the voters of both districts, assuring the election of two Democratic-Republicans. On April 8, 1808, the State Legislature re-apportioned the districts again, separating the 2nd and the 3rd District, and creating two districts with two seats each to be filled on a general ticket: the 2nd and the 6th.

Due to the double-seat districts, there were then only 15 districts; the 16th and 17th were eliminated.

The districts remained the same as at the previous elections in 1808. Only four new counties were created inside some districts: in the 5th D., Sullivan Co. was split from Ulster Co.; in the 7th D., Schenectady Co. was split from Albany Co.; in the 8th D., Franklin Co. was split from Clinton Co.; and in the 15th D., Niagara Co. was split from Genesee Co.

Note: There are now 62 counties in the State of New York. The counties which are not mentioned in this list had not yet been established, or sufficiently organized, the area being included in one or more of the abovementioned counties.

Result

12 Democratic-Republicans and 5 Federalists were elected to the 12th Congress, and one Democratic-Reopublican to fill the vacancy in the 11th Congress. The incumbents Sage, Emott, Livingston, Sammons, Gold, Tracy and Porter were re-elected. Mitchill was elected to fill the vacancy, and to succeed himself in the next Congress.

Note: The Anti-Federalists called themselves "Republicans." However, at the same time, the Federalists called them "Democrats" which was meant to be pejorative. After some time both terms got more and more confused, and sometimes used together as "Democratic Republicans" which later historians have adopted (with a hyphen) to describe the party from the beginning, to avoid confusion with both the later established and still existing Democratic and Republican parties.

Aftermath and special election

Samuel L. Mitchill took his seat in the 11th United States Congress on December 4, 1810.

The House of Representatives of the 12th United States Congress met for the first time at the United States Capitol in Washington, D.C., on November 4, 1811, and 16 representatives took their seats on this day.[7] Only Paulding arrived later, and took his seat on November 28, 1811.[8]

Robert Le Roy Livingston resigned his seat on May 6, 1812. A special election to fill the vacancy was held in the former 6th District (the didtricts had been re-apportioned in the meanwhile) at the next congressional election in December 1812, and was won by Thomas P. Grosvenor, of the same party. Grosvenor took his seat on January 29, 1813.
