Happy Friday the 13th! I turned 13 on a Friday the 13th … besides it being an overall craptastic first year as a teenager, the day has never bode ill will overall (for me anyway). What kind of Friday the 13th experiences have you had? As a treat, here’s a link to some strange things that have happened on Friday the 13th’s. Coincidence?
Roy Waldron Elementary School is set to have the playground ribbon cutting ceremony on Thursday, August 19th from 5:30 – 7:00 p.m. Help the school celebrate their big Pepsi grant win!
Did you know LaVergne has a curfew for teenagers? We now know it! Oops…. hats off to our police force for watching out for our kids and demonstrating the exact right amount of scaring the crap out of the kids while respecting the parents ability to mete out the punishment. Well done, officers!
On the campaign front, we will apparently have three candidates at this point running for mayorj. Two have turned in their papers: Incumbent Ronnie Erwin and Alderwoman Senna Mosley. Mike Slinker has picked up his papers.
For Alderman, we may see eight candidates in all. Officially on the ballot: Chris Farmer, Katherine (Kandy) Pierce, and Teresa Bess Smith. Others who have picked up papers: Randy Barnes, Thomas Broeker, David Gammon, Sherry Green, and Joshua Pope.
Finally, we are seeking questions that you have for our local candidates. If you have any, send them to me at kathy (dot) tyson (at) comcast (dot) net and we’ll see if we can get some answers for you!
