CU clinches TSAC title

LEBANON -- Cumberland University's No. 5-ranked baseball team wrapped up the TranSouth Conference regular season championship Thursday with a doubleheader sweep over Mid-Continent at Stockton Field.

Winning 4-3 in the opener and 3-2 in the nightcap, coupled with Union's 7-3 victory over Trevecca, handed the title to Coach Woody Hunt's Bulldogs.

"We've been through a lot as a team," Hunt said, "our guys kept battling, managed to find ways to win. We hope we've got many more games to play."

Third baseman TJ Murphy hit a pair of two-run home runs, one in each game, to lead Cumberland's offense.

CU (41-12, 19-4 TranSouth) will close out the regular season with the final game of the series against the Cougars at 2 p.m. Friday.

Centerfielder "Boo" Butler, who was named the Music City Star of the Game, capped a 3-for-3 opening game with a sixth-inning, two-out double to left, scoring Daniel Harrison from second for the game-winner.

The late-inning heroics by Butler helped give Bulldog ace Aaron Wilkerson his 11th win in as many starts this season. The Waco, Texas, native worked around four hits and three walks, while striking out nine to pick up his 25th straight decision. One of the walks came in the seventh inning, but Wilkerson got Trevor Buford to line into a game-ending double play.

The second game of the doubleheader started just like the first with Appleton singling to left field before Murphy sent a home run to right field.

Locante kept the Cougars hitless for 4 2/3 innings before back-to-back singles plated two unearned runs. Buford led off the fifth with a grounder to Tommy Crews, who lost the ball on the transfer from his glove. A walk and a sacrifice bunt put two runners in scoring position with one out before Locante struck out Daniel Edwards. Nathan Lawrence and Adam Connor then produced the only two Mid-Continent hits of the contest, knotting the game at 2-2.

Crews hit a one-out single in the bottom of the seventh, ending a stretch of 13 straight batters retired by Tyler Hall. Fanshawe followed with a single through the right side, forcing Mid-Continent to go to the bullpen. Hunter Burge got Jesse Bowman swinging before Butler drew a walk to load the bases for Appleton, who also took a walk to bring the game-winning run home.

Locante (7-2) struck out six and worked around seven walks to earn the victory.

Local storm damage still being assessed

By PATRICK HALL, The Wilson Post
In the wake of devastating storms that ripped through the South last Tuesday night and Wednesday, the Wilson County Emergency Management Agency is continuing to assess the damage across the county, which could bring possible Federal aid.

Watertown took the brunt of the force, with many trees uprooted, power poles seemingly cut in half, and homes damaged along the storm’s path. WEMA Director John Jewell said his crews will be assessing the financial damage in the next few days.

“It could result in some Federal assistance,” Jewell said, adding they aren’t too sure the Federal Emergency Management Agency will provide aid.

From Post staff reports
Tennessee Gov. Bill Haslam and Transportation Commissioner John Schroer Thursday released the three-year transportation program, which includes the completion of several major strategic corridor projects and the state’s Better Bridges bonding program.

What is it about Hills?

One of my favorite outdoor writers is Gene Hill. One of my favorite archers is Howard Hill. One of my favorite smallmouth lakes is Center Hill. What is it about Hills that attracts me? I guess some of it may be mystery. You never know what a particular Hill may hit you with. It may be a trick shot, a surprise phrase or a fish that you did not expect. Some too, may well be sheer beauty. An arrow etched just perfectly against a blue sky or a “set” of words that become a picture or fog, low on the water that suddenly becomes a rock bluff.

Our Feathered Friends April 27

Good Friday turned out to be just that...a Good Friday! It started off very cloudy and rainy, but it turned into a beautiful day, and we were with our good friend Ray for some birding.  I say “we” because usually it is just me, however my kids (ages 6 and 4) were out of school and have enjoyed previous trips with Ray, so I decided to bring them along this time. Bringing my kids added a whole new element.

I thought I was prepared with their toy binoculars, snacks, drinks, paper and pencils, but this was not the case. Being that it was also Earth Day my daughter, Anna, decided she wanted to collect trash to help the earth. Luckily Ray had some plastic grocery bags for her to put the trash in.  And of course we only got two stops in before the "I have to go potty" chant started.

Our first stop was at a swampy area behind Greenbrier Lake on Cedar Grove Road. In the past Ray has had a lot of luck with a variety of birds in that area, but due to the area being cleaned out it did not hold much excitement for us.

Then we made a stop at Spring Creek off Belotes Ferry Road where we heard a lot but only saw some Goldfinches and a White-throated Sparrow. I believe this is the area we also heard the Barred owl. We didn't get to see him, but just hearing him was very exciting. Ray does an excellent Barred owl call and tried to bring him in closer but didn't have much luck this time.

Wildflower festival honors 100-year-old ecology pioneer

Quarterman shares fervor for cedar glades

Special to The Wilson Post
At 100 years of age the eyesight of Elsie Quarterman is deteriorating just as her memory is diminishing.

But her passion for the plant life of Middle Tennessee’s cedar glades blooms ever strong through the generations of students she inspired at Vanderbilt University from the 1940s into the mid-1970s. And those students, many now teachers themselves, continue to inspire new students and conservationists.

Health permitting, Quarterman, who helped rediscover the Tennessee coneflower, is planning to make an appearance Saturday afternoon at Cedars of Lebanon State Park during the annual Elsie Quarterman Cedar Glade Wildflower Festival, which was named in her honor three years ago.

“If she is having one of her Energizer bunny days, there’s no telling what she will do,” said Patrick Quarterman, Elsie’s nephew. Patrick and wife Ann live with the renowned plant ecologist and Vanderbilt University professor emerita in Nashville and are her caregivers.

BC/BS being sued for $60M


By PATRICK HALL, The Wilson Post
LEBANON -- A lawsuit against BlueCross/BlueShield of Tennessee, which has slowly churned for almost 10 years, went before a jury Tuesday morning in Lebanon to determine whether BlueCross intentionally breached contract with Phyllis Craighead’s healthcare company Kids and Nurses Inc.

Jury selection and opening remarks wrapped up Monday afternoon in the trial, which could have damages awarded to Craighead in the amount of $60 million. The first witness was slated to be called at 9 a.m., Tuesday.

Initially filed in 2002, the complaint details a torrid history between Craighead’s Kids and Nurses company and insurance provider BlueCross/BlueShield.

Founded in 1987 by Lebanon native Craighead, Kids and Nurses Inc., was a “unique medical provider” for children with special medical conditions with facilities in all four major metropolitan areas of Tennessee.

I love when my brother and his family come for a visit. And this past weekend, they were in Lebanon to spend Easter with us. Soon after arriving, we all decided to head to the creek.
