It has come to my attention that many of you are upset that folks are taking My name out of the season.
How I personally feel about this celebration can probably be most easily understood by those of you who have been blessed with children of your own. I don't care what you call the day. If you want to celebrate My birth, just GET ALONG AND LOVE ONE ANOTHER.

Of the 11 resolutions on the agenda for Monday night’s Wilson County Commission meeting, 10 have to do with money, insurance, fund appropriation and budget amendments while one, however, involves honoring a local teacher for winning a statewide award.
Jennifer Davis-Kelley is a fourth grade teacher at Rutland Elementary who was named the 2009 Tennessee Science Teacher of the Year. She serves on the school’s science committee, has coordinated three science fairs and has helped organize four learning workshops on Earth and Life Science for students and parents led by facilitators from the Adventure Science Museum.
“Jennifer Davis-Kelley is always looking for ways to improve and prepares lesson plans to meet the various learning styles in the classroom,” the resolution said. “She encourages students to do their best and to soar toward the future.”

Tobacco use among minors is cited as the major offense that is heard by Wilson County’s Teen Court, according to the program’s director.
Wilson County Teen Court Director Linda Schenk told members of the Lebanon Morning Rotary yesterday that illegal use of tobacco products by teens accounted for more than one-third of the cases that were heard last year by juries made up of teens who participate in the unique justice program and render verdicts and punishment against their peers.
