Dont look now, but theres a great joke about algebra close to the end


Which of these examples is correctly written? John was born in Lebanon, Tennessee in 1975. OR John was born in Lebanon, Tennessee, in 1975. I see this in print both ways in books, in magazines, and in newspapers. Thank you for working to polish up the language skills of your readers.-One of Those Readers

Yep, dont believe everything you read (OK, believe this newspaper). Dont believe all the facts you read, and dont believe the way theyre written.

Step back in time to November 3, 1948, the day after national elections. The Chicago Tribune published a bold headline on its front page: Dewey Defeats Truman. Theres a famous photograph of President Harry S. Truman, with a big grin, holding the newspaper. Thomas E. Dewey, then former governor of New York and the Republican nominee for president in 1944 and 1948, was expected to win; but Truman, who succeeded to the presidency upon the death of Franklin Roosevelt, won. Life Magazine earlier printed a picture of Dewey captioned, The next President of the United States.

The pundits and the pollsters, though undeterred by this, as we can tell from all the noise coming out of them this election year, were wrong. Chicago Tribune Politics (online) notes, Radio comedian Fred Allen noted Truman was the first president to lose in a Gallup and win in a walk.

Red Cross needs help to aid those affected by Isaac

The Red Cross has launched a large disaster response effort that could last for weeks, affecting multiple states along the Gulf of Mexico. As the remains of Tropical Storm Isaac continue to creep slowly north, affecting millions of lives with strong winds, heavy rain, flooding and coastal surges, the Red Cross in Tennessee is working to respond.

A storm of this scope and magnitude requires the Red Cross to send our volunteers to various parts of the country to help in different capacities such as sheltering, feeding and supply distribution, said Regional CEO Joel Sullivan. This is what we train and prepare for every day so that when the call to action arrives, our volunteers can hit the ground running to provide help and hope to people whose lives have been uprooted after a disaster.

The Red Cross has more volunteers, equipment and supplies poised ready to help people in the affected areas after the storm passes.

More than 3,000 trained Red Cross disaster workers from all over the United States have deployed to the Gulf region to help.

We have 311,000 ready-to-eat meals and kitchen support trailers in the area. In addition, the Southern Baptist Convention has mobile kitchens capable of producing thousands of meals a day prepositioned alongside the Red Cross.

Across the Gulf Coast, 197 Red Cross emergency response vehicles are ready to move in to serve meals and distribute relief items once its safe to do so.


Letters to the Editor

Chamber asks resident to spread the word about Taste of Wilson

To the Editor:

These days it seems just about everything we do must be scheduled ahead of time and logged on a calendar of some kind, electronic or otherwise. I hope youll take this opportunity to tap, click, type, write or make an old-school mental note, and add Taste of Wilson County to your calendar of choice for Thursday, Oct. 18. Oktoberfest weekend at Wilson Bank & Trust kicks off that evening with a Taste event that you will not want to miss.

Hosted by Wilson Bank & Trust, Performance Food Group and the Lebanon/Wilson County Chamber of Commerce, Taste of Wilson County was originally organized to promote local restaurants and caterers while giving back to local education through the Chambers education fund.

Today the event has grown into much more than that. Its an annual occasion for everyone to become a foodie, sampling some of the countys best food while enjoying a night out with family and friends. The Taste marketplace also gives you a place to shop, paint and socialize while cleansing your palate for the next bite. To top it off (so to speak), this years event also features a grill-off among local celebrities and chefs, and our VIP section comes with a personal chef and a little extra pampering for those who enjoy the royal treatment.
