WATERTOWN -- Funeral services will be held 2 p.m. Sunday, Nov. 9 at Hunter Funeral Home for Michael Wayne Robertson, 33 of Watertown.
A 1999 graduate of Lebanon High School and a former football player for the Blue Devils, he died Tuesday evening, Nov. 4, 2014 at his residence.
A fatal motorcycle crash that occurred just last week is serving as the tragic catalyst for officials to take a closer look at the intersection of Highway 109 and Academy Road in Lebanon.
It happened doing something so mundane as pulling pesky weeds. A year ago September, Janice Wagoner was on her knees diligently pulling the late bloomers when something compelled her to reach under her shirt and bra and gently touch the underside of her breast.
"I don't know what made me stick my hand under my bra," said Wagoner, 58, wife, mother of two children and grandma to four. "Who does that while weeding? Now, I think maybe it was my mother. She's my angel on my shoulder."
FRIDAY, NOV. 7 -- "Immediate safety improvements" will be installed at the Hwy. 109/Academy Rd. intersection next week, according to Tennessee Department of Transportation Community Relations and Communications Director B.J. Doughty.
In an email sent to The Wilson Post Friday, Doughty confirmed that TDOT will be installing improved signage on both Hwy. 109 and Academy Rd. with flashing caution lights (beacons) and enhanced striping. The changes will be made within the next seven days.
Tuesday, November 11, 2014 is Veterans Day throughout the free world and certainly here in Wilson County.
