Telling Tales

Telling Tales: I love you best


It comes up a few times a year. When one of my boys is getting in trouble for mishandling a video game, leaving wet towels on the floor or not putting their dirty clothes in the hamper, the suspect will look at me with big blue eyes puddle in tears and say, “I knew you didn’t love me best! You always take his side! You’ll never love me best!”

Because of this I have decided to finally tell my children which one I actually love the best.



My friends John and Susan Jackson


How does one value friendship? How does it live and grow into something of real value? It seems to me it has to be a two-way street. In the give-and-take of life, each feels gladness in the others’ presence.

In recent months, the loss of the presence of John Jackson surely made me sad. I was not along for his wife, Susan, dearly loved him and he certainly returned her affection.

So wheres your identity been?


Do you think the term “identity loss” or “identity theft” is accurate? And did you weary of hearing “…nailed it” repeatedly in the commentary on the Olympics?

Twice this last year someone I don’t know has started charging little heart’s desires to my credit card. The huge bank who issued the card (and took lots of taxpayer’s money fairly recently, operating on a small level – me – and a big one – all of us) notified me promptly by e-mail the second time. The first time was more complicated; I received fake notifications, accurate down to the “site key” picture on the pretend bank website. Ah, the talent of evil!

Accidential shooting; Norene child dies

From Post staff reports
An investigation is continuing in a shooting that killed a Norene child Sunday night. The Wilson County Sheriff's Department reports that 3-year old Cheynne Alexis McKeehan accidentallyshot and killed herself with her stepfather's .380 caliber handgun.

Douglas Cronberger, the stepfather, told authorities that earlier Sunday evening he heard a prowler outside his Norene home, which is located on Cainsville Road right outside the Lebanon city limits.

Cronberger said he got his gun out to investigate, and when he returned he left the gun on the end table in the living room.

Cheyenne's mother, Tina Ann Cronberger, told authorities the little girl might have thought she was playing with a Nintendo Wii controller that may have resembled a gun.

Ashe said the stepfather said he was asleep at the time of the shooting, and the child's mother was in the room with the child.

MJ mayor tries to move retreat out of town

Special to The Wilson Post

MT. JULIET -- In a move that was ultimately shot down by the City Commission, Mt. Juliet Mayor Linda Elam tried to tack onto the agenda an item that would move that board’s annual “retreat” outside city limits at Monday night’s meeting.

Explaining that the agenda item “was submitted in a timely manner” but “caught in the Internet netherworld” between herself and City Recorder Sheila Luckett, Elam attempted to suspend the rules and add the resolution to Monday night’s agenda. District 3 Commissioner Ed Hagerty and District 4 Commissioner Jim Bradshaw both objected, however, and the conversation heated up when Elam said she would overrule their objections and consider the item.
