No plan in place for traffic at LHS season-opener

By Sports Editor TOMMY BRYAN

If youve paid any attention at all, youre aware of the traffic problems surrounding the first week of school at the South Hartmann Drive campus of Lebanon High.

I know first-hand as my 17 year-old junior got hung up in that mess the first couple of days of school.

Thanks to football obligations, he now arrives on campus before traffic has a chance to bottleneck and he leaves well after the rest of the student body, faculty and staff makes a mad dash for home in the afternoon.

The Wilson Post

Cedar Creek Yacht Club donated almost $4,000 to the Wilson County Sheriffs Departments Senior Citizens Awareness Network, or SCAN, program Thursday after the club held a poker run to raise money for the program that helps local senior citizens.

The Club is very excited and happy to make this donation, said Club President John T. Johnson.

The poker run was coordinated by club members Mike and Rhonda Manous and their son Deek. Several of the Yacht Clubs members volunteer with SCAN, which assists senior citizens with anything they may need, including buying food, getting air conditioners during the summer heat and even just sitting in with seniors for a chat.

We are so blessed to have such great volunteers, said SCAN Director Debbie Par. Sometimes we cant always fill the needs so we reach out to the community.
