Inventory ordered of Hattons files

From Post staff reports
Circuit Judge John Wootten, 15th Judicial District, this week appointed the Lebanon law firm of Lannom and Williams as the attorneys of record to inventory the files of Robert Timothy Hatton, the Lebanon attorney killed in the Alabama plane crash this past weekend. Wootten’s order in the matter was entered Monday.

The action taken by Wootten is in compliance with Supreme Court Rule 9, Section 22, which provides for a court to appoint an attorney or attorneys to oversee existing files of a deceased attorney in order to ensure that clients of the deceased attorney and cases in which the deceased attorney are involved are properly represented.

Specifically Wootten’s order declares that after the inventory of Hatton’s files is completed by Lannom and Williams, the firm is “empowered by this Court to solicit in the area to assist them in representing current clients of Mr. Hatton.”

Man charged in wifes death

A Mt. Juliet man is facing a charge of reckless homicide in the death of his wife which occurred about 1-1/2 years ago. Thomas Jay Vonohlen, 54, of 226 Rocky Top Trail, Mt. Juliet, was arrested on Wednesday, June 22, after the grand jury returned an indictment against him in the case.

Wilson County Sheriff Terry Ashe said the investigation into the death of Janice Vonohlen began after questions were raised by family members.

Mrs. Vonohlen “was extremely ill with cancer,” Ashe said, noting that witnesses who were interviewed during the investigation all said “he was giving her too much insulin. Because of his personal experience with insulin it was believed by medical professionals, home health (personnel) and family, all believed he was giving her too much.

Brian Black is new baseball coach at Lebanon High

By TOMMY BRYAN, sports editor
Brian Black, most recently interim head coach at Nashville’s Whites Creek High, has been hired as the new baseball coach at Lebanon High. Black, 27, replaces Tracy Slone, who was dismissed from his post back on June 10 after compiling a record of 125-122 in seven seasons on the job.

Black inherits a squad that went 13-21 last season, but produced wins over Mt. Juliet, Dickson County and Beech -- three teams that advanced to the TSSAA sectionals.

“Brian Black will be our new baseball coach and will be teaching Special Education at LHS,” principal Myra Slone said in a written statement. “Brian is certified in many areas and everyone I talked with said that he is an outstanding teacher in each area -- whether it was teaching an Advanced Placement class or a Special Education class.
