To the Editor:
I am writing this because I am concerned about our city. I have attended the council meetings many times. I get so disturbed because all they want to do is point fingers at different people.

The National Guard Armory in Lebanon has been busier than usual as they received the order to mobilize the 278th Armored Cavalry Regiment, the state’s largest National Guard unit.
Secretary of Defense Robert Gates signed the mobilization order and it was announced on Monday of this week. The 278th is made up of over 3,000 soldiers across the state, with nearly 200 stationed in Lebanon.
Middle Tennessee Electric crews will be working to improve electric service in Lebanon July 21, which will require outages in parts of the city.
The scheduled work will require about 200 residences to be without power. The scheduled times for the outages are set to begin at 8 a.m. and last until approximately 12 p.m.
