HALLOWEEN ON THE SQUARE
By ZACK OWENSBY, The Wilson Post
The Lebanon Public Square will soon be filled with tricksters and treaters Halloween night, most donning costumes. But a few poor souls will be hopping into caskets, that’s right, caskets, for the inaugural Neddy Jacob’s Coffin Race.
The Lebanon/Wilson County Chamber of Commerce’s Halloween on the Square will take a turn towards the macabre when several teams of six line up to push their coffin on wheels around the Square as quickly as possible.
Chamber President Sue Vanatta said Thursday that several teams have already formed to push one unlucky “Neddy” around the Gen. Hatton statue Halloween night.
FBI, TBI INVESTIGATIONS
By Patrick Hall, The Wilson Post
The attorney for the D.T. McCall & Sons furniture chain confirmed on Thursday that no civil settlement has been reached in a Tennessee Department of Revenue case against the business regarding sales tax disputes.
“There’s apparently an investigation from the TBI and FBI with respect to a number of tax payers,” said Paul Summers, former State Attorney General and attorney for the McCall family.
Summers said these allegations come during a “politically polarized season” and were an attempt to attack A.J. McCall because of the political candidates he supports.
From Post staff reports
Flood waters from the May 1 and 2 floods across Middle Tennessee have washed some businesses to Lebanon and landed them at the Lebanon Premium Outlets, which has recently changed ownership.
When Opry Mills closed its doors due to extensive flood damage, it left many businesses displaced and some of those businesses have found new homes in Lebanon. Among those that have moved to Lebanon Premium Outlets are Banana Republic, Guess, Tennessee Sports Fan and Ecko.
The new stores that have arrived at the shopping center are sure to bring more people and more revenue for the center as well as for Lebanon and Wilson County.
