Whats all the Coco motion?

Lebanon girl strikes Disney star factorys fancy

By KEN BECK, The Wilson Post
The entertainment career of Lebanon teenager Courtney Jones blasts off like a rocket ship Friday evening when she stars in the Disney Channel movie Let It Shine.

The singer, dancer and actress, who goes professionally by Coco Jones, performs three solo numbers in the hip-hop musical and three duets with co-star Tyler James Williams (Everybody Hates Chris).

Let It Shine is a teenage version of Cyrano de Bergerac. A lot of kids dont know that story. The movie really urbanizes it, and the gospel and hip hop puts a message in it, said Jones, 14, during a phone interview from Los Angeles two weeks ago.

The TV movie centers on a Cyrus DeBarge, a 16-year-old aspiring musician who has a gift for rhyme but is too shy to go on stage and perform his rap song to let his longtime crush Roxanne Roxie Andrews know how he feels about her. He allows his best bud to take credit for the song and watches as his pal slowly captures Roxies heart.

Roxie has two sides, said Jones, who fills the role. In the beginning shes a bigger-than-life rock star, but when she goes back to her hometown, she can be whoever she wants to be. When she finds out who she is, she realizes I can be me. and it works out in the end. Girls need to know that: Just be yourself and everything will work out.

Born in Columbia, S.C., the blossoming star is the daughter of Mike and Javonda Jones. Her father is a former NFL defensive end, and her mom is a session vocalist. The family moved to Lebanon when Jones was 5.

MTEMC tree-trimming continues

If you have driven past the Don Fox Community Park on the Highway 70 Bypass in Lebanon this week, you have likely noticed the tree-trimming and in some cases cutting that has been occurring on the south side of the roadway between it and the railroad tracks.

Its all part of Middle Tennessee Electric Membership Corporations regular cycle of trying to keep the rights-of-way under the power lines clear so trees dont fall on power lines as a result of high winds or ice storms, potentially knocking out electricity for thousands of customers.

Todd Palmer, communications coordinator with MTEMC, said power lines along the Bypass are part of the line coming out of the substation on the Bypass, near Hwy. 70/West Main Street.

Don Shirey is new GM at Five Oaks

LEBANON -- He calls himself, "just a Southern boy," but Don Shirey, the recently appointed new general manager at Five Oaks Golf and Country Club, has much more in his bag than being just a Southerner from Ft. Payne, Ala.

Shirey, a professional golfer for some 17 years, 12 of which were spent on the PGA tour, was recently selected for the management post at Five Oaks by Troon, an international golf course, private club, and resort management company based in Scottsdale, Ariz. Troon, the number one ranked management company in the industry, began its role at Five Oaks about two weeks ago.

Extreme makeover at N-L Field

Its been a little over two weeks since Cumberland University began renovations at Nokes-Lasater Field in preparation for making the former home of the Blue Devils their own in time for the 2012 college football season.

Moving briskly, CU employees, student-athletes and private contractors have swarmed over the 46-year old facility cleaning, digging, painting, mowing and in general giving the 5,000-seat stadium a new look.

Our people are locked in, said Cumberland athletic director Ron Pavan, Coach (Dewayne) Alexander, his coaches and players are over there every day. Folks can just drive by and see some of the changes from the street.
