Proposal to rename Hartmann, South Hartmann Drive considered by council

By SABRINA GARRETT
The Wilson Post

The Lebanon City Council presented a proclamation to Betsy Evins Jennings, daughter of Cracker Barrel Founder Danny Evins, naming a portion of Hartmann Drive in her fathers honor.

Prior to the presentation, Evins longtime friend, Jack Lowery, proposed that the council rename the entire stretch of Hartmann Drive and South Hartmann Drive Evins Lowe Parkway after Evins and Tommy Lowe, who helped create the Cracker Barrel concept in 1969.

There is no reason to do just part of it. Both Danny and Tommy were instrumental in founding Cracker Barrel. Ive talked to his family and Danny would have wanted it this way, Lowery said of his friend who passed away in January 2012.

Ward 4 Councilor Joe Hayes supported the proposal, saying that Cracker Barrell Old Country Stores are present in 42 of the 50 states. I am all for it, he said.

Ward 6 Councilor Kathy Warmath added, That is an honor that should be given.

Lowery said he plans to appear before the council again in two weeks to see what steps must be taken to make his proposal a reality.

Vice Lords leader sentenced to life in prison

Lebanon Police Department released a statement today that Monique Money Smith, a high-ranking figure in the Vice Lords gang, was sentenced to life in prison plus five years after a sentencing hearing in federal court last Thursday.

Smith, 40, of Cookeville, led operations in Middle Tennessee, selling cocaine and marijuana, prosecutors said. A jury found him guilty in October on drug and weapons charges related to his activities in the Chicago-based gang.

The report said that Smith took the stand for over an hour, occasionally asking his attorney to read for him. He offered various defenses, motions and commentary that often rambled and lacked clarity, most of which U.S. District Judge Todd Campbell rejected.

Assistant U.S. Attorney Braden Boucek declined to present additional evidence for the sentencing hearing, saying that the evidence presented in trial stood on its own.

A federal grand jury indicted Smith and 16 other mid-state individuals, including 11 members of the Vice Lords gang and their drug suppliers, for their participation in a drug distribution conspiracy and associated violence while illegally possessing firearms in September 2011 after a three year investigation.
