Another record-year for Sherrys Run

Event marks more participants, funds raised

The Wilson Post

Sherrys Run brought a record crowd of almost 4,000 Saturday morning and raised more than $200,000 for local families affected by cancer in Wilson County.

Despite the threat of rain, 3,842 participants turned out for the annual fundraising 5K run/walk. Participants formed 126 teams, another record number, and through the run/walk and auctions, Sherrys Run raised $234,016.

The Run has special meaning to the people who participate, said Sherrys Run Executive Board Member Anna-Lee Cockrill. Some people run or walk for a lost loved one, some people run or walk for support of those battling cancer, some people run or walk for the fun of it, some people run to inspire and give hope.

The crowd of supporters cheered on 7-year-old Alex Johnson, a Friendship Christian School student with skeletal dysplasia, who finished the event with help from friends and family. Alex was pushed by FCS cross country coach and friend Greg Armstrong for the first 3 miles before he walked the final 30 yards.

LPD ceremony remembers 9/11 victims

The Wilson Post

A small crowd gathered in front of the Lebanon Administration Building to remember those lost in the Sept. 11, 2001, terrorist attacks as the Lebanon Police Department honored those in their ranks who have served in the military since that day.

Dr. Paul Stumb, a retired U.S. Navy commander who is also a dean and professor at Cumberland University, gave the keynote address, urging everyone who remembers to never forget where they were on Sept. 11, 2001.

Im sure everyone here remembers where they were 11 years ago today, Stumb said.

Stumb noted on Sept. 11, 1941, the U.S. War Department broke ground on what would become the Pentagon in Washington, D.C., exactly 60 years before a commercial jet was piloted into that building by terrorist hijackers on 9/11.

Mt. Juliet nods own fire department

Special to The Wilson Post

MT. JULIET Mt. Juliet Board of Commissioners elected to reinstate the Mt. Juliet Fire Department at their meeting Monday.

Its a win-win for everybody, said Vice Mayor James Maness, who sponsored the ordinance.

The ordinance repeals the city code that Wilson County Emergency Management Agency will handle all fires and emergency services in Mt. Juliet and replaces it with a framework of what the Mt. Juliet Fire Department could be. It will have a Fire Chief appointed by the City Manager, and consist of career firefighters and volunteer firefighters.

The fire department will be no additional tax burden to the citizens and should have little or no effect on the general fund. The property tax passed last year to pay for the station will stay in place, and will pay for the fire department.
