LEBANON -- An early Thursday morning, Nov. 3collision between a pickup truck and a county school bus sent four people to the hospital three students and the driver of the truck.

The accident occurred about 7:06 a.m. at the corner of Oak Hill Drive and Bartonwood Drive in Lebanon.

Traffic Officer Wayne Howard with the Lebanon Police Department said Wilson County Schools veteran bus driver David Wright was eastbound on Oak Hill Drive when he spotted a 2010 Ford Ranger pickup truck coming through a yard at his bus.

The left front quarter panel of the truck impacted on the drivers side of the bus about midway and slid down toward the end of the bus.

The driver of the pickup truck was identified as neighborhood resident David Myrick, 76, of Bartonwood Drive.

He and three students were transported to University Medical Center, the students for observation with minor neck and head injuries. Howard said Myrick was disoriented and suffering from some unknown medical condition when officers arrived on the scene.

Council sets special meetings on Project Tango

The Wilson Post
Lebanon City Council moved through its Tuesday night regular meeting quickly and easily, passing all measures unanimously and setting further special called meetings next week.

The council approved a contract with the Water and Wastewater Authority of Wilson County, entering into the agreement to charge the county for water withdrawn by the city from the Cumberland River. According to the contract, the county is to pay the city $2.34 per 1,000 gallons of water used.

Also during the meeting, the council established a policy and procedure for public records requests, pursuant to the Tennessee Public Records Act. City Attorney Andy Wright said the city is not required to have a procedure by law, but it is recommended.

He pointed out a recent request was made for more than 3,000 pages worth of public records for use in a lawsuit. The policy adopted was a model policy created by the University of Tennessee Municipal Technical Advisory Service.

The council scheduled two special called meetings next week, as well as a work session prior to the first meeting to discuss developments involved with Project Tango. The city and county have been recruiting a U.S. based company to locate here, and the project was recently identified to be Amazon.

On Tuesday, Nov. 8, the council will hold the work session at 5:30 p.m. and then the special meeting at 6. The second meeting will take place on Wednesday, Nov. 9, at 6 p.m.

Bulldogs can clinch Saturday

No. 14-ranked Cumberland can clinch at least a share of the Mid-South Conference West Division title Saturday with a win at Belhaven. Kickoff is set for 1:30 p.m. at H.T. Newell Field in Jackson, MS. Live radio coverage begins at 1 p.m. on WANT FM-98.9.

Cumberland stands 7-1 overall and 4-0 in the MSC West after a wild and wooley 43-25 victory at Union College in Kentucky last week.

Belhaven enters Saturdays contest 4-5 overall / 2-3 in the West after a 58-0 loss at the University of the Cumberlands last week in Williamsburg, Ky.

Cumberland, 4-0 in the West, already has the tie-breaker over second place Bethel (4-1).

Sometimes a team will have a meltdown, and thats what happened to Belhaven last week, said CU coach Dewayne Alexander. As usual, theyre a talented bunch on offense, very dangerous with a really good quarterback.

Cumberland will have a couple of players back in action Saturday after recovering from injury.

Defensive end Collin Urenda is expected to be in the rotation while starting middle linebacker Stephon Ransom has recovered from a sprain in his mid-foot suffered back on Oct. 8 vs. Shorter.

Wingback Lemeco Miller took part in practice this week and is expected to play after suffering a sprained MCL in his left knee vs. Bethel Oct. 22.

However, offensive tackle Sam Greene will miss Saturdays contest with a sprained MCL, but is expected back in time for the home finale Nov. 12 vs. the University of the Cumberlands.

DOG BITES -- Soph JJ McClain has 1,337 all-purpose yards this season, which leads the MC and ranks sixth nationally.

Football playoffs open tonight

One and done is the mantra beginning tonight as three Wilson County prep football teams take part in the postseason playoffs. Mt. Juliet and Friendship Christian will be at home tonight while Watertown High will hit the road. Heres a look at tonights matchups.

Oakland (6-4) at Mt. Juliet (10-0)
Coach Roger Perrys undefeated Golden Bears earned a No. 1 seed in their bracket thanks to winning outright the District 9AAA championship after the first perfect season in the history of the football program.

Mt. Juliet is matched up with Oakland, a team the bears scrimmaged back in the preseason.

There are some things you can pick up from having matched up with them in the preseason, Coach Perry said, but but comparing that film to what Ive seen from their recent film -- I can see Oakland has certainly improved over the course of the season.

The winner of tonights 7 p.m. game will face the winner of the Overton - Siegel contest. Both teams sport records of 7-3.

If they keep winning, Mt. Juliet could play four consecutive playoff games at home.

Jackson County (6-4) at Friendship (7-3)
No. 4-seed Friendship Christian will host Region 4A rival Jackson County in a 7 p.m. game at Pirtle Field. JCHS lost 45-0 to the Commanders when the two played Sept. 16.

The Blue Devils are coming off a 13-6 win over Watertown while No. 7-ranked FCS rolled to a 58-7 win over Monterey.

JCHS enters the playoffs on a five-game win streak -- the longest stretch for the program since the 1981 season.

Tonights winner will travel to No. 1-seeded Trousdale County High next week.

Watertown (6-4) at Rockwood (6-4)
The Purple Tigers hope to break a four-game losing streak tonight as they travel to Roane County to battle Rockwood. Coach Gavin Websters crew opened the season 6-0, then dopped consecutive games to Friendship, Gordonsville, Trousdale County and Jackson County.
