Except for me and Adrienne worrying about certain smells and Theresa needing to find five minutes of serenity, no one is talking much on our open thread! So I’m hitting my email files to give you some news From the City in the form of announcements,
First the “ick” and “well thank goodness”:
E.coli rumor false
La Vergne Water Treatment Plant Supervisor Thomas Champagne is squelching a rumor than E-coli has been found in the La Vergne water supply, he announced on Friday.
“In the past few days there has been a rumor going around town that there is E-coli in the drinking water,” he said. “This is not true. We do tests many times a day and weekly to determine the levels of potential contaminants within the water supply. E-coli has not shown up in these tests.”
Some types of E.coli, which is a common type of bacteria, can make a person very sick. The non-harmful types generally live in a person’s intestines. All warm-blooded organizisms have E-coli within their bodies. In the 2009 Water Quality Report, there were no mentions of E-coli present in the La Vergne water. A test done on October 14, 2010 also shows that there are no harmful bacterias within the water supply.

And finally, don’t forget the Trail of Treats is coming up NEXT weekend. I have signed up for our site to be there handing out candy. Many of you volunteered to bring candy (I think we need at least 10 bags of 300 pieces and five of you have volunteered… we need MORE). If you want me to pick up the candy on your behalf let me know and I’ll be sure to get you a receipt. Meanwhile, here’s more info from the city,
People enjoying this year’s Trail of Treats are encouraged to bring a non-perishable food item to the event to help a local food bank.
”Obviously, this is not a requirement, but we hope that the generosity of our citizens comes through and they bring something to help the Smyrna/La Vergne Food Bank,” said Trail of Treats coordinator Angie Mayes. ”We’ve done this in the past, but this year, really want to push it so that the food bank gets a good deal of non-perishable items.”
Trail of Treats is the City of La Vergne’s annual Halloween celebration for young people and their parents/guardians. It runs from 2 – 4 on Oct. 30 at Veteran’s Memorial Park, 115 Floyd Mayfield Drive in La Vergne.
The Smyrna/La Vergne Food Bank is located at 130 Richardson Street in Smyrna. Their phone number is 355-0697.
That’s it for now. Have a glorious weekend!
