Committees agree to meet in joint session to discuss new LHS

The Wilson Post

Members of the Wilson County Commission Budget and Education Committees and the Wilson County Board of Education have agreed to meet in a joint session on Thursday to discuss a new Lebanon High School, possibly the only thing they agree on so far.

The purpose of the meeting is to see where things stand with regard to approving and funding a new LHS.

Earlier this month, County Attorney Mike Jennings sent a memo to all the parties involved summarizing the issues and the actions taken thus far by the commission, the board and the two committees. The memo is expected to be the main topic of discussion at the meeting which is to be at 6:30 p.m., Thursday in the commission’s chambers at the Wilson County Courthouse.

Dell to move 300 jobs to Metro

The Wilson Post

While jobs are not being lost, there are likely to be several hundred transferred by Dell Computers from its manufacturing site in Lebanon to its campus in Nashville, according to Lebanon Mayor Philip Craighead.           
It has been rumored in the business community locally for several weeks that Dell, the computer manufacturing giant, will in the near future move some 250 to 300 jobs from its plant here to the company’s assembly facility in Nashville. Craighead yesterday confirmed that the transfer of these jobs may come as early as Monday.
It is important to note that the jobs are not being abolished, according to Craighead, explaining that they are being relocated to a site some 25 to 30 miles away but will still be available for the current employees here to keep if they choose to make the commute to Nashville.

FOP letter stirs up old issues

The Wilson Post

It has been described as an old issue that has been dealt with, but still a letter from the State Office of the Fraternal Order of Police has questioned the leadership ability of Lebanon Police Chief Scott Bowen.
The letter was apparently sent to city council members, Commissioner of Public Safety Billy Weeks, Bowen, and Mayor Philip Craighead from Brian Moran, president of the Tennessee State Lodge of the FOP.

Bowen was unaware of the letter and its contents as of Tuesday morning but said he has spoken with Weeks and Craighead about the direction of the Lebanon Police Department in recent weeks and on a continuing basis.

Inman Court ordeal ends in suicide

The Wilson Post

A man who killed himself after an hours-long stand-off with authorities this past Friday has been identified.

The man’s name was Roger E. Bray, who would have turned 41 Tuesday, Jan. 27. He resided at 1205 Inman Court, a federal housing project in Lebanon.

The incident began Friday afternoon as police were in the area searching for a female runaway, said Commander Terry Bowman of the Lebanon Police Department.

Snow in forecast

The Wilson Post

School children may rejoice, parents may not, as snow is expected to fall today in Wilson County.

About 1 inch of snow is expected, probably not enough to ride a sled, but maybe a snowman or two will appear in front yards during the day.

 “It’s going to start out cold and kind of snowy,” said Darrell Massie, meteorologist with the National Weather Service Office in Old Hickory. “Everybody should see some snow flying through the air.”

Temperatures will not fluctuate too much today with the high expected to be in the upper 20s to low 30s.
