Does it make good sense to chase park away before all facts are in?

Imagine this.

There are three curtains on stage and you get to pick only one in order to receive the merchandise behind it.

You have the advantage of knowing today what’s behind two of the curtains. Behind the first curtain is a state-of-the-arc vacuum cleaner and behind the second is a top-of-the-line dishwasher.

However, you don’t know today what’s behind the third curtain but you do know that it has the possibility of being worth millions of dollars.

Dr. Bone gets immersed in mission work


Well, not literally in water, but in the mission effort.

During a two-week stay in Africa at the Nigerian Christian Hospital, Dr. Bone and his coworkers Dr. Henry Farrar, Dr. George Robertson and Don Thompson from Nashville performed more than 60 surgical cases in this Third World facility. The types of procedures performed ranged from routine hernias sometimes called ruptures, to resection of malignancies. Especially rewarding to Dr. Farrar were the results of cleft lip cases he did on young children and one 50-year-old man.

Fox: Put Bible Park near Superspeedway

The Wilson Post

The next round in the fight for the Bible Park may involve attempting to move the site out of Lebanon and into the county.

Former Lebanon Mayor Don Fox met with Wilson County Mayor Robert Dedman and County Attorney Mike Jennings to discuss the issue on Wednesday, Dedman said.

He said Fox discussed the park and said it could possibly be relocated to a site on State Route 840 near the Superspeedway.

“I told him I think the County Commission is going to want answers to the same questions the City Council is asking,” Dedman said. “I think it will have a hard time passing without financials.”

Gang suspects busted

From Post staff reports

A major drug and gang operation was concluded and closed this week, said Wilson County Sheriff Terry Ashe and Lebanon Commissioner of Safety Billy Weeks, and two persons, brothers, were arrested.

Brothers Marlon and James Waters were arrested on narcotics related charges stemming from four search warrants executed by the Lebanon Police and Wilson County Sheriff’s Departments.

A news release from Ashe and Weeks said that for the past year, the LPD and WCSD have been flooded with complaints from local residents and business owners concerning alleged narcotics trafficking occurring at the apartments located behind the car wash at 419 East Main Street in Lebanon.

Heart for Israel at Fairview Church

The Wilson Post

Fairview Church in Lebanon wants to offer people in Wilson County hope and rest in a time of trouble so it’s sponsoring a Heart for Israel Conference this weekend called “The Lion Roars from Zion,” and more than 800 people are expected to attend.

Set to appear at Fairview are former University of Colorado football coach and Promise Keepers founder Bill McCartney, among others.

“Our church has always had a heart for Israel,” said organizer Paula Renfro.

So when the pastor of the church, Michael Christian, suggested flying an Israeli flag, the congregation agreed, she said.

Mikayla new March of Dimes Ambassdor

From Post staff reports

A baby who might not have lived if March of Dimes hadn’t been able to help is this years Ambassador child for Wilson County.

Her parents, Leshia and Mike Scheetz, told the amazing story with their daughter, Mikayla, at the March of Dimes kickoff event at Dell recently.

“Having the March for Babies Walk on April 25th this year means more than just any other day to us,” said her mother. “It was this day in 2007 we welcomed our daughter, Mikayla Leigh.”

She told the group that Mikayla was born full term, 39 weeks, but weighed only 4 pounds, 2 ounces.

“But it’s five months earlier that our story begins. After having my 20-week ultrasound, I received a phone call stating that something was not quite right,” Leshia said.

Time to spring forward

From Post staff reports

Maybe you realized it, and maybe you didn’t, but it is time to spring forward this weekend.

That’s right, before you retire for the evening on Saturday, be sure to move your clock(s) one hour ahead as daylight saving time takes effect at 2 a.m., Sunday.

On the positive side, the change means it will stay daylight longer so you’ll have time to do things perhaps around your house when you get home from work. On the negative side, the change means we all lose an hour of sleep.
