"Tee it up for Sean" looking for players

One of the largest charity golf events in Wilson County is now in its seventh year and is set for play on Monday, June 18, at Lebanons Five Oaks Golf and Country Club.

The tournament, which has been tagged, Tee it Up for Sean, has enjoyed a huge following in memory of Sean Putman. Sean, who loved the game of golf, battled cancer for several years and passed away Aug. 20, 2005, at the age of 8.

His parents are Troy and Beth Putman of Lebanon.

The Sean Putman Memorial Scholarship Fund was formed in his memory later the same year Sean passed away. Seans mother, Beth, serves as a member of the committee responsible for organizing the annual event. We continue to be amazed each day at the local response in support of Seans scholarship fund by this wonderful community we live in, Putman said. Our partnership with Cumberland to assist local high school seniors entering college has been so well received. The golf tournament is an important part of our lives and directly affects others in a special way while honoring Seans memory.

Convicted felon gets 180 months in prison

The Wilson Post

The Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco, Firearms and Explosives praised officers of the Lebanon Police Department for their work in arresting a convicted felon on a charge of carrying a loaded handgun and who was sentenced in March to 180 months in federal prison.

Hopefully this will send a message to convicted felons that carry weapons that the punishment is severe, said Lebanon Police Chief Scott Bowen.

Bowen said he received a letter from Frank Haera, Group Supervisor of the federal ATF Nashville Group I, praising Officers C.J. Spicer and Kevin Ragland for their roles in arresting Anthony Carter of 315 E. Forrest Ave., Lebanon, on Sept. 14, 2010.

Bowen said Spicer pulled over Carter, who was riding a bicycle without proper illumination, on North Cumberland Street. Bowen said Spicer noticed a bulge in Carters pocket, and Carter admitted to carrying a loaded .38 caliber handgun.

Memorial planned for Dr. Phillips

LEBANON -- A local memorial service will be held for Dr. Ray C. Phillips, 22nd president of Cumberland University. Phillips passed away April 29 in Florida at the age of89.

The service will take place on Sunday, June 10 at 3 p.m. in Cumberland's Baird Chapel with a reception to follow in Phillips Dining Hall -- the facility named in honor of the former president and his wife.

Dr. Phillips served Cumberland University as Vice President for Academic Affairs from 1983-86. He then was elected to the Board of Trust and served from 1986-91 before serving as President from 1991-94.
