Dealership donates building to church

The Wilson Post

Pastor Stephen Manley and the growing congregation of Cross Style Church celebrated their ownership of the church building and property on Trinity Drive in Lebanon after Wilson County Motors handed over the deed to him and the church on Tuesday.

For 2-1/2 years, Manley said the church has been leasing the property from Wilson County Motors. Since then, the church congregation has diligently worked to improve the structural state of the building and the interior and found a permanent home in the process.

This place was so bad, we were going to bulldoze it, said W.P. Bone, principal owner of Wilson County Motors. Everybody was telling us to tear it down.

Election Commission handling redistricting

The Wilson Post

Plans to change Lebanons six City Council wards passed on second reading Monday night and are now in the hands of the Wilson County Election Commission as part of a larger redistricting process to send new voter registration cards to all registered voters.

Lebanon City Council passed on second reading an ordinance to realign the six aldermanic wards during a special called meeting Monday. The vote was 5-0 with Ward 6 Councilor Kathy Warmath absent from the proceedings.

Warmath was adamantly opposed to simply altering the existing wards during a work session last week.

Mr. Benson has done an excellent job, we really threw him into the fire all at once, Jones said.

WCBoE OK's CU move to Nokes-Lasater Field

From Post staff reports
LEBANON -- With a final 3-2 vote Monday night, the Wilson County Board of Education gave approval for Cumberland University to move its football operation and play games at Nokes-Lasater Field in Lebanon beginning this summer.

Cumberland will take over the facility in June and move its entire football operation, including coaches, equipment and athletic trainers, to the facility. With the move the Bulldogs will be able to schedule night games for the first time in program history.

This is a game-changer for our football program and University, said Director of Athletics Ron Pavan.

We are moving in a direction to continually improve our institution and facilities for our athletic programs and this allows us to do that not only for football but other sports within the department. It will also help us grow our fan base with the ability to play night games and give us more visibility and accessibility within the community.
