Two men who were arrested Wednesday morning were charged Thursday with evading arrest, theft of property and aggravated burglary after a joint search by the Wilson County Sheriff’s Department and Tennessee Highway Patrol led to their capture.

Hank C. Barr, 22, of 14441 Central Pike, Mt. Juliet, and Vincent T. Greaves, 20, of 7678 Franklin Road, Lebanon, allegedly were attempting a burglary inside a home on Lone Oak Road when the homeowner walked in on them Wednesday morning.

“The homeowner came home and surprised these folks,” said Wilson County Sheriff Terry Ashe.

Hundreds gather for prayer


By PATRICK HALL, The Wilson Post
LEBANON -- Local elected officials and citizens celebrated the National Day of Prayer Thursday with a gathering on the Wilson County Courthouse lawn that included guests from various county churches and special guest Charlie Daniels.

The festivities began with a patriotic and religious concert by local musicians and singers, including Lebanon High School senior Jacob Young, recording artist Marla Ratliff and local musician Terry Weeks.

County Mayor Randall Hutto presided over the event, pointing out the National Day of Prayer, established in 1952 by President Harry S. Truman, goes back much further than almost 60 years.

TRW celebrates 50 years

By PATRICK HALL, The Wilson Post
A brown steel box with a long metal rod extending from its center sits on the bottom shelf of a conference room at TRW Automotive in Lebanon, a silent reminder of the factory’s past.

The small plastic placard in front of it reads “First steering gear, Spec. No. 968, American Motors,” which commemorates the first steering gear that rolled off the factory floor on Sept. 7, 1961.

Now almost 50 years later, the manufacturer is celebrating an anniversary, the factory’s perseverance, and the many people who have clocked in and out, producing gears and weaving TRW into the very fabric of the Lebanon community.
