Chopper pilot found

The Wilson Post

The body of the pilot missing since the helicopter he was flying crashed into the Cumberland River more than a week ago, was found yesterday.

Sumner County Emergency Management Agency Chief Ken Weidner said searchers found the body of Robert E. Koudelka, 43, around 11 a.m., Tuesday.

The body floated to the surface of the Cumberland River in Cages Cove where Weidner and SCEMA Assistant Director Johnnie Roberson were searching the shoreline.

Cages Cove is just to the west of where the TVA power lines cross the river.

Expo here draws Dukes Cooter

From Post staff reports

For years Ben Jones’ character “Cooter” ran up and down the back roads of a small southern rural community in a mega-hit television classic many remember as “The Dukes of Hazzard.”

Driving a high performance bright orange 1969 Dodge Charger, Jones (“Cooter”) and his associates on the long running television series thrilled audiences each week as they uncovered crimes and dealt with a controversial county mayor and local sheriff.

Jones and the famous car, “The General Lee,” will be in Lebanon on Thursday, Dec. 11, at The Mill for what is being billed as a major Senior/Boomer Extravaganza sponsored by Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Cooperative and Mature Lifestyles, a MainStreet Media publication.

Juvie still on the lam

From Post staff reports

Lebanon Police Department is still on the look out for a juvenile escapee from the Department of Children Services.

“We got more questions than answers right now,” said Billy Weeks, commissioner of Safety for the City of Lebanon.  Weeks said the department is limited on what can be said about this case because the subject is a juvenile.

The LPD is requesting the assistance of the public in apprehending 17-year-old Rashad Q. Rhodes (aka “Stix”) of Lebanon who escaped from the Department of Children Services custody on Tuesday, Nov. 4.

Wilson schools get A's and B's in report

The Wilson Post

Tennessee school report cards are out and Wilson County Schools did quite well with six A’s and two B’s on the Achievement and Value Added portions of the state report card.

Lebanon Special School District did quite well, too, with six A’s and two B’s on their report cards.

The results were released by state education officials on Monday.

“I think we are fortunate to have such high quality teachers,” said Mike Davis, Wilson County Schools director. “I think they deserve the credit.”

In the achievement portion, which measures whether a school is meeting federal Average Yearly Progress standards, Wilson County Schools received A’s for language arts, math and science, with a B in social studies.

Davis also said he was proud of Wilson County students who worked hard to learn what they needed to and did so well on the testing.
